editor 22 February 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Israel: Covenants & Kingdom

Church chosen instead of Israel?
For many centuries the Church at large has denied this Biblical truth, and the Church started to hate Israel and the Jewish people. Replacement Theology became rampant in Christianity.

Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (1) – Chapter 1 – Introduction

editor 20 February 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book “Israel: Covenants & Kingdom”

Introduction
For many years we all have seen the miracle happen – the return of the Jewish people from all over the world to the Promised Land of Israel. We are the generation that is seeing Biblical prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Many prophecies in the Old Testament speak about this. To quote just one, where God speaks to Israel: “…Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ – and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth – everyone who is called by My Name, whom I created for My glory, whom I formed and made. Lead out those who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf…” (Isaiah 43:5-8). (more…)

God Is No Liar

editor 4 December 2014

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. To conclude upon the crucifixion of Jesus that God changed His mind about His everlasting covenants with Israel, and made the Church into the new people of God, the ‘new or spiritual Israel’ – one will not find this expression anywhere in the Bible – simply is not true. And it is not just a theological misconception, but it is a sin before God. It makes God into a liar. And God is no liar. (more…)

Biblical Reflections on Israel 4-10 and 5-10

editor 13 February 2014

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. In the previous episode (part 3-10) Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer talked about the ultimate replacement theology, Islam. Six hundred years after Christ came Mohammed. And he brought the final revelation of Allah. And now the Muslims say: WE are the chosen people of God and we replace you both! Maybe you and I personally, maybe you believed God, maybe you trusted Him what He said black on white that whoever (John 3:16) that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever puts his faith in Him would not perish but have life everlasting.

Biblical Reflections on Israel 3-10

editor 6 February 2014

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. How did you vote in the United Nations? Where you going with the enemies of Israel? Or did you stand with my people?

Replacement Theology: Time To Repent (Part 1)

Rev. Willem Glashouwer 15 January 2013

What is Replacement Theology?

The theory of Replacement Theology goes like this:
Theologians in the Church said: Yes, once upon a time the Jews were the chosen people by God. But when they said NO to Jesus, God said NO to the Jews. His anger and His judgment came upon them. He removed them out of their Promised Land Israel and spread them around the globe. Over the centuries they suffered a lot – especially in the lands of Christianity – and you may pity these poor people, but let’s face it: didn’t they ask for it? (more…)

The Mystery of God’s unbroken Relationship with Israel

editor 7 November 2012

God’s dealing with Israel is a subject of intense theological debate in Christianity today. People tend to differ in their understanding of the way God has maintained His relationship with Israel especially in the New Testament. Most Christians do not have a problem understanding God’s dealings with Israel in the Old Testament. This is because the Old Testament, which is principally the history of Israel as a nation is a clear narrative. However, in the ministry of Jesus in the New Testament, the central theme of the New Testament seems to shift from Israel as a nation to the church as movement of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
