Melchizedek
Let us return to the historic and spiritual roots of Jerusalem. This mountain/hill was known to be a special place, even before Abraham. A king-priest served the One and Only God at this place. It     is here where the meeting took place between this king-priest Melchizedek (whose name means ‘king of righteousness’) and Abraham. In Genesis 14:18-20 we read: “…Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, ‘Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And blessed be God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.’ Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.” [Photo top right: Melchizedek blesses Abraham.

Why End Times? (70) – Chapter 7 – Jerusalem

editor 14 November 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 7 – Jerusalem – Introduction

What is so special about the city of Jerusalem? What are the roots of this city, historically and spiritually? What role will the city play in the prophetic future – if at all? To answer these questions we have to go back, to the days of Abraham. He was the Father of the Jewish race, through his son Isaac, borne by his wife Sarah. He was the founding father of the people of Israel as well as of the Arab nations. This through Ishmael, the son he had with his Egyptian slave Hagar. Let’s start our search by consulting some Christian and Jewish sources on Jerusalem.  [Photo top right: Tower of David seen from the Jaffa Gate]. (more…)
