Jesus is Alive and Well : "Waterproof Principle 11 - Narrow is the Gate ..."


With another wonderful long weekend, we are celebrating the gift of true life in Him. This is the most important yearly celebration. 
Isn't God and the way He opened up for us the reason for our Faith? 
Resting in God, Trusting Him for his promise of Provision...The Lamb that was slain...


Acts 2:26-28  "And so I am filled with gladness, and my words are full of joy. And I, mortal though I am, will rest assured in hope ... because you will not abandon me in the world of the dead; you will not allow your faithful servant to rot in the grave. You have shown me the paths that lead to life, and your presence will fill me with joy."

Heb 4:6  Those who first heard the Good News did not receive that rest
because they did not believe. There are, then, others who are allowed to receive it. 

Being a faithful servant ... it requires faith in God and acting on your faith.
No Matter how you may FEEL. Do not allow your emotions to rule your life.

Jesus did not particularly look forward to the hard road ahead, Did he look forward to being rejected, bruised and beaten?  He submitted his Will to His Father's out of and the Father brought Him back to life on the third day. He trusted himself to His Father.
 Just like Abraham trusted God when God asked him to sacrifice his son Isaac...
Follow Jesus ...walking in Obedience - He says, if you love me, you will obey Me.
It sure is easy to talk and agree, but the true test is when you have to act on what you have heard.

The Bible says, if you hear and do not do, you are like a man who built his house on sand, it will not stand in the storm...But if you hear and act out of faith on what you have heard in faith, then you are like a man who has built his house upon a rock. And the storm did not destroy the house.
Point of the matter is...THE STORM is a given. No easy sailing if you believe or if you don't believe, the Storm is coming. Question is, where will your house, or rather where will you be found, built on sand or on the Rock that is Jesus Christ?

"But the gate to life is narrow and 
the way that leads to it is hard, 
and there are few people who find it.
Mat 7:14 


The easy way is to hear and not act in faith. 
The hard way is to hear and act in faith like Jesus did.
Because of His Obedience, Because of the Father's LOVE
He has opened a gate for us to follow.


"For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life. 
For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its savior. 
Those who believe in the Son are not judged; but those who do not believe have already been judged, because they have not believed in God's only Son." John 3:16-18

Joshua Na Die Reën & Liani Reynolds

    Liani Reynolds en Jacques van Joshua na die Reën

Joshua Na Die Reën het al ‘n huishoudelike naam geword in Suid Afrika en almal wat sy musiek hoor is gaande daaroor. Vir die rede was Affies Seunsskool, in Pretoria, se saal vol gepak met afwagting op sy nuutste album. Almal het uitgesien na sy gevoelvolle stem wat gemaklik hoog en dan weer laag deur jou hart sny met sy sielvolle lirieke. Jy kan sy musiek voel en jou hart kan dit verstaan. Ek dink dis hoekom so baie mense sy musiek geniet. Ons, ek en Lenetjie, was ook baie opgewonde om Liani Reynolds se album te beleef, veral vir dié wat haar unieke diep stem gehoor het op die Lugballon enkelsnit van Musiek soos Grond. Laat ek vir jou ‘n prentjie skets van die heerlike aand sodat jy kan voel asof jy ook daar was. Ek deel graag met julle my belewenis.


Voor die konsert het ons vinnig ‘n paar fotos geneem en geselsies aangeknoop met sangers, radio omroepers en Jacques se ma wat op kort kennis kaartjies verkoop het.

Die klippie in my skoen - geskryf deur iskra

Wat 'n knaende verraad! Daardie klippie in die skoen. Daardie ding wat krap en pla en mens soms verleë laat. Dis 'n pes as jy dalk jaag van hier na daar, soveel dinge wat aan jou trek; jou aandag vat; daar is nie tyd nie! Vir jou om net te kan sit, skoen uittrek en die verdomde ding uitgooi! Pfffeeeu...! Wat 'n verligting as hy eers weg is!

So klein dingetjie met soveel praat in sy kneuse...daardie klippie in die skoen.
(Talk about rubbing me up the wrong way!)

Ons het almal maar ons klippies. Klein goedjies wat haak en pla. Daagliks knaag dit aan ons..maal dit rond in ons koppe, laatnag, wannneer ons eintlik moet slaap...

Ons veiligheid.
Ons kinders se toekoms, gesondheid. Hoe gaan jy hierdie maand daardie rekening betaal?
Jou huwelik of 'n vriendskap is dalk op 'n snaakse plek of selfs naby skipbreek?

Dalk ons eie gesondheid wat 'n lelike rapport gekry het... 'n finale een...wat jou asem weggeruk het...wat jou, die mense om jou, dae en minute met 'n ander o…

Noem My Skollie - Die Resensie

#NasieInspirasie
Fliekresensie: Noem My Skollie




Duur: 2.5 ure

Skrywer: John W. Fredericks

Regie: Daryne Joshua

Vervaardiger: David Max Brown

Klankbaan: Kyle Shepherd
(Geskik vir kykers vanaf 18jaar)

Kyk, dis die eerste fliek wat my binne my sitplek in die teater laat voel het ek is verseker nié veilig nie. Noem My Skollie is hard en onverskrokke, maar baie eg tot die werklikheid. Die feit dat die film gebaseer is op John W. Fredericks (die skrywer) se lewensverhaal, maak dit net meer roerend.

Na jy dié wêreld van daaglikse geweld en oorlewing op die Kaapse vlaktes en in Pollsmoor se tronk uitgebeeld gesien het, sal jy sukkel om weer op dieselfde, haai-shame-dis-darem-erg manier daar verby te ry. Gevolglik speel baie gebeure af in areas waar jy as kyker al self voetspore gelos het, en dít bring die film ook baie nader aan jou eie lewe.

AB, Gimba, Gif en Shorty is tipiese jong seuns wat in die 1960’s hul geluk uitprobeer in hul eie bende, Young Ones, totdat AB en Gimba deur die polisie gevang …
