Why End Times? (29) – Chapter 3 – Many antichrists

editor 27 April 2017

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

Micaiah Ben (the Son of) Imlah
To what extent these forces are capable of influencing people is already clear in the Old Testament too. In 1 Kings 22, we read the story of Ahab’s battle against Ramoth in Gilead. Ahab, the king of Israel, tries to get Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, on his side, so they can enter into battle against the army of Aram (Syria) together. Jehoshaphat hesitates however and says: “…First seek the counsel of the LORD. Consult Almighty God.” (more…)

editor 25 April 2017

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

The spiritual world
The Bible speaks about the reality of the invisible world, about demons and evil spirits, about the devil and his angels, and also about good heavenly powers, such as Michael and his angels. There is an invisible world behind the visible world around us. What takes place there influences what happens on earth. (more…)

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). (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.

Passover and prophecy

editor 12 April 2017

By Bill Wilson.. Monday (April 10, 2017) began Passover. Passover is a Jewish feast commemorating how God led the Israelites out of Egyptian slavery. Christians often overlook Passover, not understanding that it is most Holy and prophetic. The Israelites painted the blood of an unblemished, sacrificial lamb on their doorposts for the plague of death of the firstborn to Passover them. This is the picture of Christ, the unblemished lamb, who died on the cross for our sins. Our church family and friends celebrate the beginning of Passover with a traditional Passover Seder, a feast retelling the story of the Exodus from Egypt and foretelling the Messiah’s sacrifice, return, and reign.

Arab-Israeli Peace Agreements

editor 12 April 2017

By Eli E.Hertz.. Between 1993 and 2001, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Palestinian Authority (PA) signed six agreements with Israel and conducted countless meetings and summits to bring about a lasting peace between them. Each Israeli concession was met with Palestinian non-compliance and escalating violence. Six times, Palestinians failed to honor their commitments and increased their anti-Israeli aggressions. Finally, they broke every promise they made and began an allout guerrilla war against Israel and its citizens. (more…)

Pesach: Who is the most important son? Ask the rabbi

editor 8 April 2017

By Rabbi Raymon Apple.. Rabbi Raymond Apple has the answer. Who Is The Most Important Son? The most important son at the Seder is not the wise one. He’s not the one for whom the Haggadah (Ex. 13:8, “v’higgad’ta levin’cha”, “you shall narrate to your son”) explains the laws of the festival. Being so studious, he is sure to want to delve into the sources for himself. Nor is it the wicked, the “rasha”, even though his nasty attitude is a shock and we deal with him robustly. (more…)
