Why End Times? (55) – Chapter 6 – The Great tribulation and Israel

editor 21 September 2017

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

Tribulation for Israel and blessing for the Church?
What are we   to think of this? Is all this really correct? Or is it simply the old refrain again: the blessings are for the Christian Church, and the judgement, the curse and catastrophes are for Israel? This is how the Church has been presenting its ‘replacement theology’ to people for centuries. This says that Israel’s suffering and worldwide dispersion among the nations is Israel’s punishment for rejecting and murdering Jesus. Adding that when they did that, Israel’s status as God’s chosen people came to an end. So the blessings are all for the Church and the curses are for Israel. This is deeply flawed thinking and theology. (more…)

Why End Times? (54) – Chapter 6 – The Great tribulation and Israel

editor 19 September 2017

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

The following order of events is proposed in quite a lot of End Time plans: the Church age and the worldwide preaching of the Gospel end with the ‘Rapture’ of the true Christian Church, which appears before the judgement throne of Christ to receive her reward according to her works. There, in the heavenly realms, the ‘Marriage of the Lamb’ takes place. (more…)

Why End Times? (53) – Chapter 5 – The beast and the antichrist

A watertight system
Europe has already experienced many revolutions: the French Revolution, the Communist Revolution, Hitler’s Third Reich, each with wonderful promises and fantastic slogans, hope seen through rose-coloured prospects, freedom, equality and fraternity. The classless society, the thousand year Reich of the Brownshirts and the Blackshirts (the study of how the new administrative systems, the first primitive computers in the Third Reich came into being, in which IBM was fully involved, is interesting).

City of the Great King

editor 2 July 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer..
Part I: Jerusalem, the Eternal Dwelling Place

When Israel reclaimed Jerusalem in 1967, it made the hearts of devout Jews skip a beat. Would this be the moment the Temple would be rebuilt? And if so, where would that be? Of course, many Jews said that Jerusalem should be the place, on top of Mount Zion, where the temples of Solomon and Zerubbabel had been. It would be built in the same location that the Temple was destroyed by the heathen nations, Babel and Rome. But why build it in Jerusalem? (more…)

Why End Times? (37) – Chapter 4 – Babylon

editor 25 May 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 4 – Babylon

Mystery Religions
Let’s make some other remarks about Nimrod and Babel/Babylon: Nimrod and his newly invented religion formed much of the thinking in the profane world of ancient times. The Bible gives us only   a short account of Nimrod and the founding of Babel, but it is possible to weave this into the historical accounts of authors in classic antiquity, who have provided important information about this founder of Babylon and its first king. We already quoted Bryce Self’s article about Semiramis, Queen of Babylon and Alexander Hislop’s ‘The Two Babylons’, first published around 1850. (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…)

SEVENTY NATIONS

editor 16 January 2017

By Rev Willem J.J.  Glashouwer.. Those who have followed the developments in the Middle East year after year will not have missed that in November 2012, the General Assembly – voting by a large majority (139 in favour to 9 against with 41 abstentions) – accorded Palestine ‘non-Member Observer State status’ in the United Nations. Since then, pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel resolutions follow each other in quick succession. (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.

Jerusalem, the UN and the times of the Gentiles

editor 12 January 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. When we see what is happening in the UN at the moment, we are reminded of what our Lord said about Jerusalem. Jesus spoke a lot about Jerusalem, and what would happen to Jerusalem in the future. He said “Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled”. This has something to do with His coming again, at the end of the age. Is that the time we are living in?   (more…)

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

editor 10 January 2017

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

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.
