The Adversary wants to Imitate

Israel is a primary target of Satan’s enmity against God and mankind on earth. Called the Accuser (Adversary, or the vernacular devil), the father of lies hates the God of truth and hates His Word because it embodies the truth (Ps. 119:160). Israel became the channel for the Word of God and for the salvation […]

“Yea, has God Said?” and Was it Truly So?

Already in Paradise, man was confronted by opposition to God’s Word. The cunning serpent, inspired by Satan (the Adversary), queried, “Yea, hath God said?” and reinterpreted it to mean “you shall be as gods” (Gen. 3:1, 5). There was a temptation which enticed them (v. 6). The temptation continues The Replacement Theory is also a […]

The Elephant in the Room

– Why fiction about Israel is converted into truth The people of Israel have a God ordained destiny in the land of Israel. They also have a divinely ordained law to treat fairly the “stranger” who joins the nation. After all, the Jew was also a stranger in Egypt (Exod. 22:21). One of every two Europeans, […]

Prophecy (Part II)

In part two of this series on biblical end-time prophecy, we will look at several examples dealing with Israel’s restoration. These will help us understand current and future events, clear up common misconceptions, and will challenge “politically-correct” thinking. Two important signs of the end time mentioned in the Bible are 1) the return of the […]

Prophecy (Part I)

Over a third of the Bible is prophetic text. You would, therefore, expect Bible believers to have a keen interest in prophecy. Many read the prophets with an appreciation for, among other things, the promises of end-time redemption. They have an awareness of prophetic signs that indicate the nearness of the Keytz Hayamim (End of […]

Chosen for Blessings, Suffering, Victory!

The Creator of the vast universe has chosen among His creatures on our tiny planet a people to be His messengers to all inhabitants on it. He found that lineage in the righteous Abraham, Isaac, Jacob–and He Himself decided the name: Israel! He even embedded reference to Himself in the final two letters. The latter […]

THE HAMAS-ISRAEL WAR, JULY-AUGUST 2014

Thoughts on Operation Protective Edge and the war on Hamas terror. As the rocket fire from Gaza intensified and Israel’s counter-offensive took shape, issues similar to those in previous conflicts arose. One fact, however, surprised all: The scope of Hamas’ terror infrastructure, specifically the tunnel network that crossed into Israel. Many finally understood the real […]

Israel, trust in the Lord: He is their Help and their Shield

This heading from Psalm 115:9 is a challenge. In the same series of Hallel Psalms of Praise we read, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes” (118:9). Where our friends stand was proven again on December 29, 2012, when the United Nations, dominated by Arab states, decided to […]

This Time We Know

“Whatever has been is what will be, and whatever has been done will be done, and there is no new thing under the sun” (Eccl. 1:9). In the last issue of HASHIVAH, I wrote an essay about the perpetuation of the Nazi spirit and its raging against the Jewish population of Israel today (vol. 35, […]

The Jews: Semites or Khazars?

“The Temple never existed.” “Jesus was a Palestinian.” “The Palestinians are the descendants of the Canaanites and the Philistines.” Such absurd statements are frequently made today by Palestinian Authority spokesmen in a crude attempt to rewrite ancient history. It is part of a campaign to deny the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, even […]
