Why End Times? (47) – Chapter 5 – The beast and the antichrist

editor 20 July 2017

Arrogance
The antichrist oozes arrogance. Daniel 7:8: “…While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastful.” He is fully convinced of his own bragging; he is convinced that he is greater and better than God. Daniel 11:36: “…The king will do as he pleases. (more…)

Characteristics of the antichrist
To know definitely who THE antichrist will be, we need to examine many aspects in the Bible that identify him. Those living in those days, at the end of the End Times, will then know and recognize who THE antichrist is. (more…)

Hanukkah
The Hebrew word ‘Hanukkah’ means ‘consecration’. And this festival commemorates the cleansing and re-consecration of the second Temple in the year 165 BC, after the Maccabees’ rebellion against the Syrian occupiers who had desecrated it. It begins on 25 Kislev (sometime in December) and lasts for 8 days. Hanukkah is not mentioned in the Old Testament, but it is referred to in the New Testament, in John 10:22, where it is called ‘the Festival of Dedication’. (more…)

Why End Times? (37) – 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…)

Why End Times? (3) – 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?

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.

Starting today Christians for Israel International will start publishing weekly episodes of Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer’s book “Why End Times?”.

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…)
