Why End Times? (19) – Chapter 2 – Eschatological Science Fiction

editor 23 March 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 2 – Eschatological Science Fiction

The first trumpet
When the first angel blows his trumpet, hail and fire come forth, mixed with blood. On the earth a third of the earth burns, together with a third of all trees and all the green grass. Natural scientists have actually compared the trumpet judgements with the development of a worldwide nuclear war, whereby all the modern weapon systems are to be used successively, with the result that each one brings on the next as it were – a chain reaction of violence.

Why End Times? (18) – Chapter 2 – Eschatological Science Fiction

editor 20 March 2017

Martyrs
The martyrs are seen under the fifth seal. These martyrs have been slain because of the Word of God and the testimony they maintained. The ennobling of man and the persecution of believers always go hand in hand. Man wants to be like God, insist on his own rights, not bothering about Gods’ rights. He sets up his own realm by the use of force – his own New Age, his own New World Order in the name of man: the ‘city of man’. (more…)

Why End Times? (3) – Chapter 1 – Why End Times?

editor 12 January 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 1 – Why End Times?

The Restrainer
However, before this evil is able to break through without restraint, the ‘one who is holding it back’ must first be removed, says Paul. There is therefore something or someone who is still preventing the coming of THE antichrist; a restraining force, a Re- strainer. This will not continue to be the case. At a given moment the ‘one who is holding back’ evil will be removed and evil will be able to break through without restraint and THE antichrist will appear on the world scene to rule in full control.

Why End Times? (2) – Chapter 1 – Why End Times?

editor 10 January 2017

The final hour
We have therefore been living for over 2000 years in ‘the Last Days’, in the End Times. These last days will also have a last day. And that last day will also have a last or final hour. The hands of the clock of history stand at 5 minutes to 12 – almost midnight. John speaks about that last and final hour in his first letter, 1 John 2:18: “…Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come.

editor 6 January 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 1 – Why End Times?

Starting today Christians for Israel International will start publishing weekly episodes of Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer’s book “Why End Times?”. Dutch speaking readers can watch weekly episodes of a new series of conversations between Rev Glashouwer and Dolf van de Vegte entitled: “Waarom Eindtijd?” on Family7 via cable and Internet TV starting Saturday January 7, 2017.

Foreword
For many years I have been teaching, preaching and speaking about Israel and God’s everlasting relationship with His people and His land. About the everlasting Covenants He made with them. Covenants and promises for which He pledged a solemn oath. And God will never break an oath. He is a reliable God, keeping His Covenant of love for a thousand generations. He does not change His mind halfway. His YES is YES and all the rest is of the evil one. (more…)

Jerusalem and the Temple Mount

editor 17 November 2016

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. Jerusalem and the Temple Mount
“…But you will cross the Jordan and settle in the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and He will give you rest from all your enemies around you so that you live in safety. Then to the place the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for His name – there you shall bring everything I command you: your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and the special gifts, and all the choice possessions you have vowed to the LORD. And there rejoice before the LORD your God, you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants…” (Deuteronomy 12:10-12). (more…)

Why Jerusalem? (69) – Chapter 8 – Jerusalem and the allegory of Galatians 4

editor 3 November 2016

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why Jerusalem? Chapter 8 – Jerusalem and the allegory of Galatians 4

Blessings and Covenants
God promised blessings for Ishmael, but His everlasting Covenant with Abraham, later confirmed to Isaac and Jacob. The problem in the Middle East is not one of ethnicity, because there are great blessings for the Arabs, being descendants of Ishmael. The crux is that the Arabs, including Palestinians, are almost totally dominated by Islam. They serve Allah, like so many other peoples and nations in Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, the former USSR-republics and half of Africa. (more…)

New Biblical Theology

editor 2 September 2016

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. In 1948 ‘Replacement Theology’ and its variation ’Fulfilment Theology’ suddenly collapsed because of the establishment of the State of Israel. After a process of more than a 100 years of ‘Zionism’- which is not a political movement but a stirring of the Jewish hearts by the God of Israel for His people to return to Zion, a deep longing in the hearts of the Jewish people to go back to the Promised Land, to Jerusalem – many prophecies of the Bible were visibly being fulfilled. So apparently the Church had not replaced Israel. (more…)

Why Jerusalem? (19) – Chapter 4 – Jerusalem and the Temple (Cont’d)

editor 24 March 2016

From the book Why Jerusalem? Chapter 4 – Jerusalem and the Temple

Destruction and rebuilding
David prepared – Solomon built – Nebuchadnezzar destroyed (2 Chronicles 36:19). After the Babylonian captivity, a second Temple was built by Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:19; Ezra 2:2, 3:2 and 8; 4:2- 3). Little is known about this Temple, other than that it was built by decree: “…This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: ‘The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He has appointed me to build a Temple for Him at Jerusalem in Judah’…” (Ezra 1:2).

Why Jerusalem? (11) – Chapter 3 – Jerusalem and the Promised Land (Cont’d)

British opposition
Britain’s role in all this was dubious, and often downright anti-Semitic. To Britain’s credit, it must be said that it had adopted   the Balfour Declaration in 1917, in which the right of the Jewish people to a “national home” in Palestine was acknowledged. This Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a letter from the United Kingdom’s Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild, a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.
