Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (55) – Chapter 7 – Kingdom and Covenants

editor 11 October 2018

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

Destruction and rebuilding
David prepared – Solomon built – Nebuchadnezzar destroyed (2 Chronicles 36:19). After the Babylonian captivity, a second Temple was built by Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:19; Ezra 2:2, 3:2, 8, 4:2-3). Little is known about this Temple, other than that it was built by de- cree: “…This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: ‘The LORD, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He has appointed me to build a Temple for Him at Jerusalem in Judah’…” (Ezra 1:2). Zerubbabel appears in the genealogy of the Lord Jesus (Matthew 1:12), and is mentioned by the prophets Haggai and Zechariah after the Babylonian exile (Haggai 1:1-2, 12-14; Zechariah 4:6-10).

Israel: Covenants & Kingdom (54) – Chapter 7 – Kingdom and Covenants

editor 4 October 2018

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

The Ark of the Covenant and the Tabernacle
Initially, the presence of God was strongly associated with the Ark of the Covenant (Exodus 25:10-22). This chest contained the two stone tablets with the Ten Commandments written by the Lord Himself (Exodus 31:18 and 34:1, 27-28), a jar of manna (Hebrews 9:4; Exodus 16:33-34; 1 Kings 8:9), and Aaron’s rod that budded (Numbers 17:8-10). On top of the Ark was a mercy seat of pure gold with two cherubim, figures of angels, also of pure gold. The faces of the cherubim were turned toward the mercy seat where the high priest sprinkled the blood of sacrifices. [Photo top right: The Ark of the Covenant had an atonement cover (or ‘mercy seat’) on top of it. It was made of acacia wood, overlaid with pure gold inside and out. On top of the cover stood two cherubim (angels) at the two ends, facing each other. Their outstretched wings covered the atonement cover. Exodus 25-40 Contributed by Rev. Yves Langevin].  (more…)

editor 3 October 2018

By Jennifer Peltz and Angela Charlton | AP.. UNITED NATIONS — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran on Thursday (September 27, 2018) of keeping a “secret atomic warehouse” just outside its capital, despite the 2015 deal with world powers that was meant to keep it from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Holding up a poster-board map of an area near Tehran as he spoke at the U.N. General Assembly, Netanyahu told world leaders that Iranian officials have been keeping up to 300 tons of nuclear equipment and material in a walled, unremarkable-looking property near a rug-cleaning operation. (more…)
