Why End Times? (61) – Chapter 6 – The Great tribulation and Israel

editor 12 October 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 6 – The Great Tribulation and Israel

In his impressive book ‘Kroniek van de Jodenvervolging 1940-1945’ (Chronicle of the persecution of the Jews 1940-1945, first edition already in 1950) Abel J. Herzberg sketched the deep spiritual background of what motivated Hitler and his cronies. First of all he refers with great appreciation to the book ‘Edda and Thora’ by the Christian Prof. Dr. K. H. Miskotte, which was ’a source of strength for so many Jews during all the misery of the occupation’. The book is compiled from lectures held by Miskotte in The Netherlands in 1934 and in Dutch East India in 1937, published in 1939. [Photo top right: Abel J. Herzberg](more…)

The source of the humiliationIsrael’s installation of metal detectors on Jerusalem Old City’s Temple Mount near the al Aqsa Mosque.
