Why write? An open door ... !

" ... See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. ..."
Revelation 3:7-8 (NIV)

Sometimes God guides you to, asks you to come into action for him in ways you didn't expect or thought would be possible. Many has experienced this in their personnel lives. Why write?

The article
When and how did I start writing articles?

Just back from our visit to the Land of Israel in February 2010, I continued to search for information about Israel on the inter net. I stumbled on a website with articles about Israel from various writers. Interesting. So I started to read and learn.

There was this article about the "lost" tribes of Israel. While reading it, I got very excited. I mean, I had to get myself to calm down. I just could not resist the urge to write a comment on the article to the website. To do so, was not one of my habits.

Surprise: my article
To my surprise, the editor made an article, Where is Israel's King David, of my response. Nice, but I didn't think anything of it at that time. There were also a few comments, from which I learned, coming in on it.

An exhibition about Israel caught my attention, and we went. I saw a film in which a rabbi talked about the holocaust, amongst other topics. It made me sad, and all this got stuck in my heart and mind. But this rabbi made clear that they, the Nazis, wanted to kill more Jews but things didn't work out the way they planned. This gave me hope and I wrote a comment, And yet Hitler failed, in which my feeling of hope rang through. I hope it also did for those who took the time to read it.

Back home my gathering of information about Israel continued. On the website mentioned before, I read articles and wrote comments.

There are those words again: "The door is open."

Again and again they were placed as an article by the editor. I have been writing articles ever since and finally I set up the Stichting the Green Olive Tree and continued to write on my website thegreenolivetree.nl. I was and still am grateful to God the Almighty Father and to the members of the Editorial Team of the website www.whyisrael.com. This is a website of the organization of Christians for Israel International. I'm convinced now, that all this is meant for God's work, his purpose for all his people.

God bless you,
