MEANDERS THROUGH THE WORD by Shirley Templeton

From the very moment Eve plucked the forbidden piece of fruit and slipped it into her mouth, all was lost and all was changed for mankind. God showed His mercy and grace in giving a promise to this woman in Genesis 3:15, referred to as the Protoevangelium. A Redeemer would come. This promise would be accomplished through a woman. Many of the women of the Bible strove amidst challenging circumstances to transport this Promise into the earth. Most were considered less than equal. Many were regarded with little respect. But through the Promise all became joint heirs with Him. This Promise was brought about through the faithful work of women such as Miriam who was a prophet during the Exodus, Deborah, both a prophet and a judge and who directed Barak to lead the army of Israel into successful combat against Israel’s oppressors and Huldah, also a prophet, who was the first person to authenticate scripture. The New Testament also shows that women filled important ministry roles. Mary, the mother of Jesus, from whom emanated the Promise, Mary Magdalene, the first evangelist and apostle to the Apostles, or Tabitha who initiated an effective benevolence ministry. Women ministered both to and with Jesus. Of the 39 co-workers that Paul mentioned throughout his writings, at least one-fourth were women. These were faithful women, but there were also faithless women from whose lives we can see indication to the nation of Israel that a Messiah was to come who would save them from their sin. Such was Rahab, the prostitute. The proliferous promised nation is propelled into the “promised land” by the help of the prostitute, Rahab. Rahab’s scarlet thread was a symbol of the blood of Christ, by which those who were once harlots and unrighteous out of all nations were saved.’ When this prostitute eventually showed her faith, God considered it enough to have her listed in the genealogy of Jesus.
It was through the life of a pagan woman that the story of the Kinsman Redeemer is told. Ruth’s is the story of an unbelieving woman who came to faith, a poor woman who was richly blessed, a woman who was redeemed by one who pictures what the Saviour, our Redeemer, does for all who come to Him in faith, the Proposal of the Promise.
In these last days Jesus Christ has been taking the Bride of Christ through purification and cleansing. He is preparing us to meet Him in His Royal courts for the wedding supper of the Lamb. The story of Esther illustrated the end time position of the church as our Royal identity in Christ as His Bride – a purified and cleansed virgin bride.

UITERS GEHEIM & ANDER ANEKDOTES deur Kobus de Villiers

Uiters Geheim en ander Anekdote:

 

Elke seun wil op een of ander stadium ʼn brandweerman, vlieënier, Rugby Springbok of renjaer word. Baie selde word die drome bewaarheid.

In die laat sestigs is Rusland en Amerika in die ruimtewedloop en daar stap ʼn man op die maan. Dit is die Koue Oorlog en nuwe vliegtuie en ruimtetuie word ontwikkel. ʼn Kaalvoet seun in die Vrystaatse myndorp, Welkom volg elke stap in die nuus en wil vir NASA en Boeing werk maar ook ʼn renjaer word. Met ʼn draagbare radio wat hy self ombou kan hy luister na die gesprekke tussen Houston en die ruimtemanne. Sy kamermure is beplak met prente van renmotors, vliegtuie en ʼn kaart van die maan gemerk met moontlike landingsplekke. Hy leef in sy komplekse verbeeldingswêreld, maak sketse en teken planne van vuurpylenjins en vliegtuigvlerke. Hy bou ʼn vuurpylenjin wat hy aan die loop kry op die trekker se kragparafien. Hy leer ook gou dat Suid Afrika se onaanvaarbare politiek dit nog meer onmoontlik maak vir ʼn Vrystaatse plaasseun om dié drome te kan beleef.

Hy gaan skool by Welkom Volkskool en Goudveld Hoërskool. Doen sy diensplig in 6 SAI en 2 SAI en studeer Ingenieurswese by Tukkies. Hy begin werk in Suid Afrika se jong lugvaart industrie en sy eindelose verbeelding lei daartoe dat hy die geleentheid kry om in die buiteland te gaan studeer en werk.

Dié storie is ʼn versameling anekdote van hierdie epiese reis vanaf die stowwerige gruispaaie van die Vrystaat tot die Autobahn na Stuttgart, die Golden State Freeway verby Caltech se Jet Propulsion Lab kampus en nuwe ontdekkings van vreemde plekke en nuwe tegnologieë. Hy woon en/of werk in Italië, Duitsland, Frankryk, Peru, Israel, Pakistan, Maleisieë, Singapore, Japan en die Emirate. In Rusland woon en werk sy span in Leonid Brezhnev se Dacha op een van die mees ongelooflike lugvaart samewerkingsprojekte. Daarna is hy in Kanada en die VSA en neem deel aan nuwe baanbrekers besoedelingsvrye tegnologie en ander lugvaartprojekte. Iewers langs die pad ontmoet hy ook ʼn ongelooflike mooi en slim Franse meisie. Projeksekerheid se mense is oortuig sy werk vir die Franse geheime diens. Weens die geheimhouding van dié soort werk het familie en vriende geen werklike idee van wat hy gedoen het nie. Nou dat alles lank gelede gebeur het en voor die herinneringe verlore gaan moet hy sy stories vertel. Sy versameling anekdote van vreemde lande en gebeure, ervarings en selfontdekking.

Dit is ʼn lang en ongelooflike pad van Welkom in die Vrystaat tot by Einstein se kantoor…
