Why End Times? (78) – Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

editor 12 December 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

David made the choice
David had identified the site where the Temple would be built. God chose by choosing David, the man after His own heart, and David made God’s choice. The Lord inspired David’s heart and thus David’s choice became God’s choice. In Psalm 132, David had said: “…I will allow no sleep to my eyes, no slumber to my eyelids; till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob” (Psalm 132:4-5). Jerusalem was to be the city where the Lord chose to establish His Name, 2 Chronicles 12:13. Read more »

Why End Times? (77) – Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

editor 9 December 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

The threshing floor of Araunah
King David was a sinner like all of us. One day his sin was so grave that the Lord decided to send in the Angel of death, and 70,000 men died from Dan in the north to Beersheba in the south. But when the Angel of death approached Jerusalem, we read in 2 Samuel 24:16-25: “…When the Angel stretched out his hand to destroy Jerusalem, the Lord was grieved because of the calamity and said to the Angel who was afflicting the people, ‘Enough! Withdraw your hand.’ The Angel of the Lord was then at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. Read more »

Israeli Jewish lawyer represents 50 Palestinian torture victims because other “Human Rights” organisations refuse

editor 8 December 2017

By Christians United For Israel (CUFI).. A Jewish lawyer, who the media would describe decoratively as a “far-right settler”, has come to the aid of fifty Palestinians who were tortured by the Palestinian Authority.

The victims, all Palestinian Arabs, were jailed, beaten, kidnapped, tortured, some even raped, and others killed by their own government, because they were suspected of working with Israel. And the most shocking part is that 230, so-called, Human Rights Organisations have turned them down when they were asked to help. Read more »

Jerusalem in the ‘End Times’

editor 8 December 2017

By Andrew Tucker.. There is a lot of talk about the end times, or ‘last days’, that have been prophesied in the Bible. The term ‘end days’ in the Bible does not mean the end of the earth or the end of the world. It means the end of a phase of world history (the Greek word is ‘aeon’ meaning ‘vital force’, ‘generation’ or ‘period of time’). In Matthew 24, the disciples ask Jesus “what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?”. Jesus answers by telling them about all the things that will happen before ‘the end’. He talks about ‘birth pains’ (verse 8), wars, famines, earthquakes and other signs of the ‘end’. In all of this, He speaks in the context of the prophecies of the Old Testament which are full of God’s promises to send the Messiah to usher in the kingdom. Read more »

The Battle for Jerusalem

editor 7 December 2017

By Rev. Willem J. J. Glashouwer.. On 31 October; yes, on the same date that Martin Luther in 1517 hammered his 95 theses on the doors of churches in Wittenberg-Germany and started the great work of the Reformation; the same day the ANZAC soldiers from Australia and New Zealand launched their attack in 1917 on Beersheba that ultimately led to the liberation of Jerusalem from the occupation by the Turkish Ottoman Empire that had occupied Jerusalem and the Holy Land for 400 years. “The events of 31 October 1917 laid the foundation for the Jewish people being able to return officially and legally to their land and to ultimately establish their own State on 14 May 1948”, we read in the article of Kelvin Crombie in the October edition 2017 of our newspaper ‘Israel & Christians Today’.
