I travel around the world to many countries. Many churches invite me to speak about the future, about the coming of Jesus, about Israel, about the fulfilment of prophecy. Now I come to churches and the people say: “Well this is wonderful, you speak about Israel, about the coming of Jesus. You speak about the Kingdom of Peace that will come to this planet earth. But our pastor doesn’t speak much about it, hardly ever. Why not?
There is so much happening in the world they say, there are so many signs of the times that are developing right before our eyes! Why doesn’t he speak about it?” What is it that is holding pastors back to speak about it? Why is it that many theologians and many pastors have no idea what is happening? What went wrong in church history? Has the church replaced Israel as the chosen people of God? What about fulfilling His promises to the church? What about the everlasting covenants He made with Israel? Why is Israel coming back to the Promised Land? Why are all these prophetic events in the world taking place? Will there come a Kingdom of God? How should we deal with all these confusing facts in a Biblical way? Rev Willem Glashouwer explains all about it in this week’s video (6) of the new series (3) of Focus on the Future.
