A Word to Consider

editor 22 April 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer..

ASSYRIA
“…The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand [two hundred million]. I heard their number…” (Revelation 9:13-16). Read more »

Bright Days and Dark Days

editor 21 April 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. For many in Israel, it has been a week of vacation, celebrating a holiday that starts off with a lot of work and then melts down to good food, good rest, good times with family. But interwoven in the good of the last week, there have been underlying elements of darkness that make me nervous. I’ve been watching the situation in North Korea and Syria. It takes so little to start a war, and so much to stop one and the people who suffer most are rarely those who press the Start button. Read more »

Iran vows ‘Death to Israel’ as it unveils its latest missiles during National Army Day parades (but at least one looks like North Korea’s ‘fake’ wonky rocket)

editor 21 April 2017

By Gareth Davies.. Iran has paraded a missile with the sign ‘Death to Israel’ attached to it during a huge military parade showcasing deadly weapons this morning (April 18, 2017).  The ceremony was held in the capital Tehran and troops from all units took part to mark National Army Day in the country, but one weapon in particular looked a lot like a North Korean missile critics said was a fake at a similar parade. The nose of a rocket mounted onto a bigger missile appears to be pointing skywards, in the same way the North Korean weapon was comically built which prompted people to take to Twitter to say it was an empty, painted box.

Comment: Sisi and the Copts

editor 20 April 2017

By Rami Aziz.. After nearly three years of Sisi’s reign, the Copts find themselves facing continuous decay in their livelihoods and rights, with no end in sight. On December 11 (2016), a massive explosion shattered St. Mark’s Cathedral in Abbasia, central Cairo, claiming the lives of more than 25 worshipers and wounding scores of others. The event cast even more anxiety and strain over the situation of Egypt’s Copts, which has been volatile and troubled for some time.

Is Tikkun Olam the Right Jewish National Narrative?

editor 20 April 2017

By Yaakov Katz.. Tikkun olam is an important piece of our national story, but we should not forget the core of the Jewish people’s narrative – an ancient nation that returned to its historic homeland. Why do Jews live in Israel? What is their purpose here? Why not live somewhere else? Why in this specific contested small piece of land? I ask these questions as I complete my first year as editor of The Jerusalem Post, a job I started immediately after last Passover. Read more »

Why End Times? (27) – Chapter 3 – Many antichrists

editor 20 April 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 3 – Many antichrists

World rulers
Let us recapitulate slightly so we can pick up the thread again that finally leads to THE antichrist. Hebrews 1:2 says: “…but in these last days.” 1 John 2:18 says: “…this is the last hour.” 1 John 4:1-3 says: “… Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.

How Iran Enables Syria’s Chemical Warfare Against Civilians

editor 19 April 2017

By Benjamin Weinthal.. The 59 Tomahawk missiles the US fired at the Shayrat Air Base served to punish dictator Bashar Assad for his use of chemical weapons against civilians. The strikes on April 6 also helped shine a spotlight on Iran’s role in Assad’s repeated use of nerve agents, because the mullahs’ Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps were at Shayrat. What the rapid-fire news cycle didn’t say early this month was that Tehran and Damascus jump-started a program to develop a sophisticated Syrian chemicals arsenal as early as 2004. Read more »

editor 19 April 2017

By Sharon Udasin.. Water Gen tech works in remote locations, and where pipes are no longer safe. From the remote corners of India to the palm-lined streets of Miami-Dade County, one Israeli company is aiming to do the unthinkable – extract safe, inexpensive potable water from the air we breathe. “We created a product that can really be the next source of drinking water,” Maxim Pasik, executive chairman of Rishon Lezion-based Water Gen, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday (April 13, 2017).

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 3 – Many antichrists

Pharaoh
Here are just a few characteristics of this oppressor of Israel:

  1. Pharaoh was the king of Egypt which, in the Bible, is more than once portrayed as a type of the fallen world that is under the control of the evil one. THE antichrist is to be a world leader, after all.
