By Rev Willem Glashouwer.. I travel around the world to many countries. Many churches invite me to speak about the future, about the coming of Jesus, about Israel, about the fulfillment of prophecy. Now I come to churches and the people say: “Well this is wonderful, you speak about Israel, about the coming of Jesus. You speak about the Kingdom of Peace that will come to this planet earth. But our pastor doesn’t speak much about it, hardly ever. Why not? (more…)

By Tsvi Sadan.. The Church of Scotland recently published a report on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from a Christian perspective entitled “The Inheritance of Abraham – A Report on the Promised Land.” You won’t be able to find this report online, as it was quickly removed from the church’s website following sharp protest from Scotland’s Jewish community and Israeli officials.

By Israel Today Staff.. These days there is no shortage of Christians worldwide who wish to support the Jewish state in any number or ways. But often these Christians hit a brick wall when the Israelis they seek to support are religious Jews wary of Christian aid.
The hesitation is understandable given the centuries of Christian persecution of the Jews that preceded modern times. That so many Christians now openly profess unconditional love for the Jews “smells fishy” to some. (more…)
A lot is happening in the world today. In every country all kinds of developments are going on and mostly not for good! Today you see Christianity quickly fading away. Its fading away in Holland, in Europe and in all others parts of the world too. Christianity is fading away and so are the values of the Bible. Other spirits come in and take over the spiritual vacuum. Crime is setting in more and more. We see that people get hard and they want to get everything for themselves. (more…)
By Reuters.. A collection of Jewish writings will remain in Russia because returning it to the New York-based Chabad Lubavitch movement would set a precedent paving the way for more such claims dating back to Soviet times, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. “The Schneerson Collection belongs to Russia,” Putin said in a new Jewish museum in Moscow, in referring to texts held in Russian libraries and archives, some of them confiscated by the Soviet Union from Nazi forces during World War Two.

Let His Blood Be On Us And On Our Children
One of the verses that has been used throughout the ages by the Church to teach that Israel has been rejected and placed under a perpetuating curse and judgment of God, and that the Church replaced Israel as the chosen people of God, is Matthew 27:25b: “…Let His blood be on us and on our children” (maybe the background for this expression can be found in Ezekiel 3:16-21).

By Rev Willem Glashouwer.. What should the Church do?
- Repent for her sins of the past. We should be like Daniel. Personally he had done nothing wrong. He probably was the most pious man on earth during his days. He denied food that he as a Jew was not supposed to eat. It could have cost him his life, But he rather died than deny the God of Israel and His commandments. But when he understood on the basis of the prophecies of Jeremiah that the 70 years of the Babylonian Captivity (between 600 – 500 BC) were almost over and that the people of Israel were about to return home to the Promised Land, he went to his knees, and said: Forgive my sins.

By Rev Willem Glashouwer.. Israel on the way to its rest
God sees it otherwise. He is faithful to His covenants with Israel. And now Israel is on the way to rest for her body, soul, and spirit. The reborn Jewish state is an undeniable fact. In Israel Jews can be themselves. Spiritually many of them are rediscovering their Jewish roots. The number of synagogues in Israel is growing, as is the degree of Jewish self-esteem and self-awareness. There, in the Promised Land, God’s Spirit will be poured out on them, as foretold by the prophets Joel, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Zechariah. (more…)
