Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (36) – Chapter 5 – Church and Kingdom

editor 21 June 2018

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

The Kingdom and Israel
That visible Kingdom will be inseparably bound to Israel, because the Angel Gabriel promised to Jesus’ mother Mary in Luke 1:30-33: “…The angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favour with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; His Kingdom will never end’…” [Photo top right: The Christmas story – An angel visits Mary | Credit: Contributed by LUMO Project – Free Bible Images].  (more…)

Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (35) – Chapter 5 – Church and Kingdom

editor 19 June 2018

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

In you and among you
Jesus answered a question about when the Kingdom of God would come by saying, “…The Kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say ‘Here it is’ or ‘There it is,’ because the Kingdom of God is within you…” (Luke 17:20-21). He meant that its date cannot be calculated using some formula or schedule of end times events, or by a prophetic roadmap formed by gluing Bible verses together as an eschatological timetable.

Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (34) – Chapter 5 – Church and Kingdom

editor 14 June 2018

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

Ethiopia: Signs and Wonders
In the book of Acts, the promised signs of the Kingdom immediately became visible. In the book of Acts one will find many examples of this. The crippled beggar at the entrance to the Temple was healed in the Name of Jesus by the Apostles, as well as many others. Demons were cast out, dead were raised, and Paul who was bitten by a snake simply shook off the creature into the fire, without being harmed.

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.

Biblical Reflections – Lake of Fire

editor 11 January 2018

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. “What do you want with us, Son of God?” they shouted. “Have You come here to torture us before the appointed time?” (Matthew 8:28-32) “Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” (Matthew 25:41) “And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Revelation 20:10) “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12).

ISRAEL – SUNDAY 2017 (Dutch: ISRAËL ZONDAG 2017)

editor 27 September 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. A form of Christian theology, or perhaps one should rather say anti-Christian theology, has for centuries held the Jewish people collectively responsible for the death of Jesus. The Church has been less merciful than God. It cannot be repeated often enough that the Crusades, Inquisition, Pogroms, and Holocaust took place in the Christian world, and represent Christian anti-Semitism. Even today, the World Council of Churches issues one pro-Palestinian pronouncement after another. (more…)

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…)

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…)

Jerusalem and the Temple Mount

editor 17 November 2016

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. Jerusalem and the Temple Mount
“…But you will cross the Jordan and settle in the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and He will give you rest from all your enemies around you so that you live in safety. Then to the place the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for His name – there you shall bring everything I command you: your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and the special gifts, and all the choice possessions you have vowed to the LORD. And there rejoice before the LORD your God, you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants…” (Deuteronomy 12:10-12). (more…)

Why Jerusalem? (69) – Chapter 8 – Jerusalem and the allegory of Galatians 4

editor 3 November 2016

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why Jerusalem? Chapter 8 – Jerusalem and the allegory of Galatians 4

Blessings and Covenants
God promised blessings for Ishmael, but His everlasting Covenant with Abraham, later confirmed to Isaac and Jacob. The problem in the Middle East is not one of ethnicity, because there are great blessings for the Arabs, being descendants of Ishmael. The crux is that the Arabs, including Palestinians, are almost totally dominated by Islam. They serve Allah, like so many other peoples and nations in Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, the former USSR-republics and half of Africa. (more…)
