A sorry story from Sweden

Situated 640 kilometers (395 mi.) north of Stockholm, a tragic story has been developing in the city of Umeå (oo-may-AWE). Its remote location makes it the most unlikely of places for an outbreak of anti-Semitism, yet it is exactly that which has made the city the subject of hundreds of news stories worldwide. The eight […]

62 years of marriage

The Polish Ambassador to Israel, Jacek Chodorowicz, presented medals and certificates of honor signed by Polish President Andrzej Duda to Dr. Hillel Goldberg and his wife Leah in recognition of their 62 years of marriage. Hillel Goldberg was previously decorated with the Silver Medal of Honor by the late Polish President Lech Kaczynski.

Understanding our Time

Many people are unable to apply the allegorical references of the Bible to the present. Equipment and instructions are suited for a specific time. I am antique enough to remember guiding a plow pulled by a horse. I also remember seeing women scrubbing clothes on a metal washboard and, once they were dry, running them […]

This, too, is Jerusalem

It was Thursday afternoon, May 26. We had just said our farewells to guests visiting from Australia when we noticed smoke, assuming it came from the Arabs burning garbage across the valley from us, as they often did in the night to irritate us. Then we saw the small planes, ultimately there were eight of […]

Who Battles Against the Truth?

God is Truth! In the book of His Word, the Truth is communicated with us. The Jewish People are God’s personal possession (Deut. 7:6). Worldwide, the Jews are known as the People of the Book. Nowhere is the resistance and battle against God–the Truth–expressed more strongly than in the negative treatment of Jews internationally. This […]

Prophecy becomes Reality Today

In the 1970s, I spoke across Canada and the United States especially about eschatology (endtime themes). In that connection, I analyzed chapters 38 and 39 of the prophet Ezekiel in detail. These deal with the attack of Gog of Magog and several of its allies from the north against the “land that is brought back […]

Nothing new under the sun – Eccl. 1:9

New words, old goal: Jew-hatred, anti-Judaism, anti-Zionism, anti-Israelism, all of it is anti-Semitism. But even more serious: It is literally anti-God!  To say it succinctly and immediately, I encounter a difficulty with the inexactitude of the term anti-Semitism. There are various Semitic peoples that are descendants of Shem, the oldest son of Noah. Yet, this […]

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 […]

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 […]
