The Covenant of Peace
Ezekiel 37:21-28: “…This is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone.

There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offences, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be My people, and I will be their God’…”. [Picture top right: Ezekiel spoke as God had commanded.

Ezekiel 16:59-60, 62: ”…This is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘I will deal with you as you deserve, because you have despised My oath by breaking the Covenant.

Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (26) – Chapter 4 – God’s Love and Covenants with Israel

editor 17 May 2018

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

Everlasting Covenants
The Covenants are to be taken literally as contracts between two parties. These Covenants are eternal, everlasting agreements with Israel that will therefore exist ‘forever’. God cannot change His mind halfway about them. All these Covenants are covered by a solemn oath, which the Lord Almighty swore by His own Name at the making of these Covenants with Israel.

God Is No Liar

editor 4 December 2014

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. To conclude upon the crucifixion of Jesus that God changed His mind about His everlasting covenants with Israel, and made the Church into the new people of God, the ‘new or spiritual Israel’ – one will not find this expression anywhere in the Bible – simply is not true. And it is not just a theological misconception, but it is a sin before God. It makes God into a liar. And God is no liar. (more…)

Biblical Reflections on Israel 4-10 and 5-10

editor 13 February 2014

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. In the previous episode (part 3-10) Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer talked about the ultimate replacement theology, Islam. Six hundred years after Christ came Mohammed. And he brought the final revelation of Allah. And now the Muslims say: WE are the chosen people of God and we replace you both! Maybe you and I personally, maybe you believed God, maybe you trusted Him what He said black on white that whoever (John 3:16) that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever puts his faith in Him would not perish but have life everlasting.

Biblical Reflections on Israel 3-10

editor 6 February 2014

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. How did you vote in the United Nations? Where you going with the enemies of Israel? Or did you stand with my people? With the apple of my eye?”  In this part of “Biblical Reflections on Israel” Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer discusses the vote in the United Nations in November (2012) about an observer position of the Palestinian State, on soil that the Everlasting one promised to His people, Israel.

Replacement Theology: Time To Repent (Part 1)

Rev. Willem Glashouwer 15 January 2013

What is Replacement Theology?

The theory of Replacement Theology goes like this:
Theologians in the Church said: Yes, once upon a time the Jews were the chosen people by God. But when they said NO to Jesus, God said NO to the Jews. His anger and His judgment came upon them. He removed them out of their Promised Land Israel and spread them around the globe. Over the centuries they suffered a lot – especially in the lands of Christianity – and you may pity these poor people, but let’s face it: didn’t they ask for it? (more…)

The Mystery of God’s unbroken Relationship with Israel

editor 7 November 2012

God’s dealing with Israel is a subject of intense theological debate in Christianity today. People tend to differ in their understanding of the way God has maintained His relationship with Israel especially in the New Testament. Most Christians do not have a problem understanding God’s dealings with Israel in the Old Testament. This is because the Old Testament, which is principally the history of Israel as a nation is a clear narrative. However, in the ministry of Jesus in the New Testament, the central theme of the New Testament seems to shift from Israel as a nation to the church as movement of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
