About me

Dear brothers and sisters,

Thank you for reading and subscribing to my blog called ‘Alex on Faith’! Some years ago God gave it on my heart to become more active in learning and teachting about faith and the Bible. Not only, to help others in their faith, but also to grow in it myself. I am not claiming to have all the answers, because only God has that. But I do believe that God puts us on a journey through life with high and lows to really shape us in our faith. Although, the harder parts in life are really not the fun part, I do learn to see that God really helps us in those times to come to Him and not let those challenges dictate our happiness.

As part of my journey I have been working on the Alex on Faith ministry through writing this blog on faith and giving Bible studies.

Furthermore, a little about me: I am a pentecostal Christian, married with my beautiful wife and the father of three amazing children (2 boys and 1 girl).

Also feel free to sent me a message if you have a question or suggestion on my blog. I am always happy to discuss them as I also can grow from your thoughts and remarks. Also if you want me to make a blog (from my viewpoint) on a certain topic, please feel free to sent me a request so I can schedule it in).

May God bless you on your journey!

  1. Thanks, Alex, for liking so many of my blog posts. May God bless you and your family in 2015 – and may your words bring blessing to many.

  2. Shalom,

    The Daily Inspiration has very nice photographs and good texts. Hopefully those texts may bring many to God and show the way to Him, which is by Christ Jesus, God’s only begotten beloved son who is not God like many wrongly have made Jesus into their god and you being a Pentecostal Christian, seemingly also not accepting those things Jesus says about himself and not believing what God Himself also says about Himself and about that Nararene preacher. Hopefully by the years your insight also may grow and you will become to accept the Word of God as written in the Holy Scriptures.

    God bless.

  3. To my knowledge Pentecostals are fervent worshippers of three gods, which is not the God of the Hebrew bible nor or the Messianic Writings (t2nd part of the Christian Bible) nor of the prophetic writings of Muhammad. In all those writings is clearly indicated that there is Only One True God, Allah, Lord of lords and Host of hosts, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Jesus and his disciples, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah.

    1. You are wrong about Christianity/Pentecostals. We only have and serve one God, being the Holy Trinity (God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit). They are all the same and not separate Gods. What the Koran states on this subject is irrelevant to me as it does not acknowledge Jesus as the Son of God, which both Jews and Christians do (they differ on the issue of whether He has already come or still has to come)

      1. How can those thre persons: 1 God the father + 1 god the son + 1 god the Holy Spirit (1+1+1=3) be one and not seperate gods?

        Concerning the Quran, you are wrong not willing to see what it clearly states:
        Allah states
        “And they say, ‘The Most Merciful has taken a son’ Exalted is He! rahter, they (Those they claim to be ‘children’ of allah, such as the angels, Ezra, Jesus, etc.) are (but) honored slaves. They cannot precede him in word, and they act by His command. (Quran 21:26-27)

        Abraham is the patriarch of Muslims and as such like Jesus was a child of Abraham and of God, those under Abraham are children of God, and as such Jesus is a child of God, like I and others are children of God.

        Jews have difficulties with accepting Jeshua to be the Messiah, but like Muslims and certain Christians they accept that those who love God and only worship the One and Only True God, may call themselves of God.

        The Messianic Jews are the only Jews who accept Jesus to be the Messiah.

      2. All Jews accept Jesus to be the Son of God. You are correct that the Messianic Jews accept that He already came to earth (was born in Biblical times) and the rest of the Jews are of the opinion that the first time that Jesus has to come is still to come.

        With regard to Abraham, I know that Muslims consider Him a patriarch as well. However, for muslims this is through the birth of Ismael, which was born not from Abraham and his wife Sara, but through intercourse with a servant. The son of Abraham and Sara is considered by God to be the true son through which God was preparing the lineage from Adam to Jesus. As mentioned before any religion that does not acknowledge Jesus to be son of God, is a false religion. It may sound hard, but I am not a person that will accept the attempts of this world (NWO) to have one religion).

        Also the Holy Trinity is 1 God and not three.

  4. I thought I had replied to your misleading information that Muslims would not see the sonship in the relationship or tribal chain of Adam-Eve, Abraham unto King David.

    I also thought I had copied a Quran verse which says clearly that Ishi/Jesus is the son of God, like you and I are a son of God. that sonship has nothing to do with sex, like certain Muslims (and perhaps also some Christians may think of). As such God did not have any sexual relationship with the young girl Miriam or virgin Mary.

    When you want to refuse that the world shall have one religion, you are refusing the Kingdom of God, because there will only be place for those who love God and who want to worship only One true divine God of gods.

    Why do you not want to believe Jesus is God’s Word having become a reality, having come into being to be our saviour?

    “the Word,” who became flesh, lived on the earth as the man Jesus and was seen by people. Therefore, he could not have been Almighty God, regarding whom John says: “No man has seen God at any time.” — (John 1:14,18).

    For me John in his first chapter is speaking about the Word which is a result of speaking. For me it is also clearly when you compare it with the other books of the Bible, that John is composing his working the lineage of Moses his writing about the beginning of the universe and what happened there. It was in the Void that God spoke and the universe came into being + it was there at the beginning of times that in the garden of Eden God spoke to the first human beings when they had opposed God. There God made a first promise for a solution against their transgression.

    The apostle John saw in his master teacher that that Nazerene man had to be that promised solution, the promised Kristos or Messiah. It is in this context that the apostle, being convinced that now with the offering of Jesus new times had come. for this reason he looks at Jesus to be the fulfilment of God’s promise, God’s Word, spoken in the past, and now having come into being by Jesus in the flesh, being born to bring salvation for all people.

    John in the first and 14th verse lets us know that the promise made or the Word spoken, which was from the beginning, that which we should have heard, that which we should have seen with our eyes, that which we should beheld, and which have many of lovers of God their hands handled, that he as apostle for his master, concerning the Word of life, has written unto those who knew Christ from the beginning but also unto us, because we should know him who is from the beginning. Jesus not only like us written from the beginning in the Book of life and death, but also being the promised one in the most earliest days of history of man. Therefore John has written unto the young men in his time but also to us, because we should be strong, and the word of God should abide in us, us having to overcome the evil one, like Christ did. (1 John 1:1; 1 John 2:13-14 )

    When looking at what John further says about Jesus, there is no doubt that Jesus cannot be God, Who is has always been the Most High and always shall be the Most High, whilst Jesus was lower than angels and was made higher than angels and man, to come to sit next to God, to be a mediator between God and man. If Jesus is God he cannot be a mediator between himself and man, is it not?

    Look at what John writes. Do you than not believe what Jesus himself says?

    Clearly you do not seem to believe that the Elohim sent Jesus, but are convinced that God Himself came down to earth to do as if He was a man of flesh and blood, though God has no flesh and blood and is a Spirit. So why do you not believe God is an eternal Spiritual Being, like the Bible says?

    “17 But Yahshua answered them, My Father works till now, and I work. 18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. 19 Then answered Yahshua and said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for whatever things he does, these also does the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all things that himself does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21 For as the Father raises up the dead, and revives \@them;\@ even so the Son revives whom he will. 22 For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment to the Son: 23 That all \@men\@ should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him. 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25 Truly, truly, I say to you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself; 27 And has given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, to the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, to the resurrection of damnation. 30 I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father which has sent me.

    31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. 32 There is another that bears witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesses of me is true. 33 You sent to John, and he bore witness to the truth. 34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that you might be saved. 35 He was a burning and a shining light: and you were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than \@that\@ of John: for the works which the Father has given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father has sent me.” (John 5:17-36 KJBPNV)

    “27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 ¶ You have heard how I said to you, I go away, and come \@again\@ to you. If you loved me, you would rejoice, because I said, I go to the Father: for my Father is greater than I 29 And now I have told you before it comes to pass, that, when it has come to pass, you might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world comes, and has nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go away.” (John 14:27-31 KJBPNV)

    “God \@is\@ a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship \@him\@ in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24 KJBPNV)

    Therefore lovers of God should give each Biblical the right honour and reverence and should only worship One true God of gods.

    Jesus being a god, like angels, Poses, Pharaoh, Baal, Apollo, Zeus, and others in the Bible are called god, should be taken for what he is and for what he has done. According to God His Word Jesus is the Way to God and not the way to himself (which cannot be.)

    Again taking the writer of that Gospel and of the Book of Revelation.

    “Yahshua said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6 KJBPNV)

    “Truly, truly, I say to you, He that hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24 KJBPNV)
