editor 14 December 2017

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

The Ark of the Covenant and the Tabernacle
Initially, the presence of God was strongly associated with the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 25:10-22), the chest that contained the two stone tablets with the Ten Commandments written on them by the Lord Himself, (Exodus 31:18 and 34:1, 27-28), a jar of manna, (Hebrews 9:4; Exodus 16:33-34; 1 Kings 8:9), and Aaron’s rod that budded (Numbers 17:8-10).

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. (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. (more…)
