Jerusalem and the End Times

J

The status of Jerusalem in the last days, as stated in Zechariah Chapter 12, is said to be a burdensome stone burdening all nations. It’s going to be the source of the final conflict. 2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a...

Jerusalem at the centre of our world – Zechariah 12

J

I’m just going to read one more scripture, and we’ll skip over Jeremiah 30 and go to Zechariah 12, if you can. Zechariah 12 says, The burden of the word of the Lord against Israel.

God gives us a way out and we don’t know how many people called on the Lord in their...

When are the Times of the Gentiles fulfilled?

W

So, the times the gentiles, when are they fulfilled? And what does it mean? We’ve already seen it’s a time of trouble. The times of the gentiles is mentioned in Luke 21 verse 24. It actually runs from the reign of Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon which began about 608 b.C.  and ends at the Second Coming of Jesus. The times of the gentiles actually means the times when the gentile powers are...

Hate and Love – anti-Semitism in the church (1967-Present) – Pearce & Stone

H

David Stone Before 1967, I would say that most Western liberals were fairly sympathetic to Israel. After 1967, when Israel became an occupier of Arab territory, that changed. There was a rapid cooling of attitude. But bizarrely, despite the fact that Israel was the party that was constantly striving for peace, that was accepting UN resolutions while the Arabs were rejecting them, that was...
