Have you heard the one about Adam and his rib? Well, as you probably know, in the beginning God created Adam and put him in Paradise. Adam was allowed to take part in all the joys and wonders that were in the Garden of Eden, and he was given a job to naming all the animals. But after he had named the animals – ever so long and big task – he went tired and wanted some company. Someone who he could talk with and impress. God understood his situation very well and said: “I can see you’re lonely. Let me create a woman for you.”
“What is a woman?” Adam asked hopeful. Continue reading MDR 3 – Has God Said?
Yes, it’s time again for the “end-time prophets” to announce about some obvious natural phenomena which will come again and again… and again, as a sign of major traumatic things that will happen either to Israel or the whole world. In this days it’s the “Blood Moon” which is trendy, and John Hagee is maybe the one who shouts loudest in the “prophecy-chorus” about the blood moon.
John Hagee, one of the major voice within Bood Moon Theology/Prophecy/divination and is author of “Four Blood moon,” a book on the New York Times best seller list (Do not waste your money by buing the book, the explanation is as follows).

Here comes second and final story that I use as a intro to MDR, and to bring some light on some of the issues and problems we may encounter on this topic. Let us not dwell but go straight on to the last stories.
I was in a pleasant and lively social boy-gathering… well it was not a big gathering, but we were 5 good mates gathered home of one of them. I had not seen them for three years and we had not much information about each other of these three years, therefore, there were many stories to exchanged. He who owned the house, Erik, was a good artisan and had built his house himself. A great and lovely house and I admired him for the work he had put on this house and elsewhere in his life. – Wife, children, house and car, and already now without debt. Yes a great career as artisan he had. It was like just one way for him, upwards and forward.

For I hate divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel,
And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery. (Mal. 2:16, Mat. 19:9 NASB)
I have long time wanted to write a bit about some difficult topic – marriage, divorce and remarriage. Not only Christian and in a Biblical context, but I’m sure all may have huge benefit of this series. We don’t really find the difficult questions in the group of marriage, but for sure we find may difficult question in the group of divorce and remarriage. The topic of marriage can not be let out, because it’s where all starts. I have a big faith that we can avoid many problems even before we goes to the step of marriage by get more fully understanding what a marriage is. Yet, I have been concentrated around the topic of divorce and remarriage at first, then I will come back to the topic of marriage another time. …go and read!
