Discerning

editor 29 April 2017

By Bill Wilson.. A lot is written about fake news these days. Fake news actually has been around for a long time. It is one of those sensational headlines that entices you to read the story, but in reality, the story is not really a story. The National Enquirer had a reputation of such. Perhaps a headline about a celebrity having another celebrity’s babies. When you read the story you discover that the celebrity gave a dog that is having puppies to the other celebrity. That was fake news before the politicians got a hold of it and took it to a whole different level. Then there always has been propaganda—some news with a political bent to move people’s thinking. It’s all about weaving in enough truth to make a better lie. How do you discern?.. (more…)

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…)

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

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.

An Air Force Chaplain’s Unforgettable Passover, 50 Years Ago

editor 13 April 2017

By Jordan Hiller.. How a week of military leave created one rabbi’s unlikely connections to Menachem Begin and Ted Kennedy, on the eve of the Six-Day War. For Rabbi Barry Dov Schwartz, April 1967 was filled with anticipation. Between running services at the synagogue he founded on Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts, he conscientiously checked his mailbox for the inevitable Temporary Duty Order, which would advise where he’d be spending the upcoming holiday.

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.

editor 1 April 2017

By Tsivya Fox.. “Thou art my covert and my shield; in Thy word do I hope. Depart from me, ye evildoers; that I may keep the commandments of my God.” Psalms 119:114.
