Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (42) – Chapter 5 – Church and Kingdom

editor 12 July 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book “Israel: Covenants & Kingdom”

The Resurrection of the Body
Something extraordinary happened at the Resurrection of Jesus: He rose through the grave cloths, leaving them behind still intact, but as an empty ‘cocoon’. The stone was not removed to let Him out, but to let us in. If grave cloths cannot stop you, neither can a stone. And later He appeared to His disciples and stood in their midst although the door of the room was closed, and then He was gone again.

HRH, The FCO and The Big Lie About Israel

editor 12 July 2018

By Melanie Phillips.. One of the most startling aspects of the demonisation of Israel is the use of international law as a key weapon. Israel represents law and justice against those who deny them. Yet it is falsely painted as fundamentally illegitimate and guilty of repeated illegality and breaches of international norms. Defenders of Israel, including its own government, seldom push back publicly against this. False assertions by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office about Israel’s illegal settlements or the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” are met with silence. Read more »
