The Dutch chapter of Christians for Israel has invested just over $30,000 to make a 36-feet-tall Star of David topped with a menorah – the nine-candle symbol of the Jewish holiday of Hannukah – which it claims will be Europe's largest menorah, to show solidarity with the Jewish community in what they believe to be the End Times.
Christians for Israel established the menorah "to show to the Jewish community in Israel and worldwide that they have friends who are praying for the restoration of Israel," Sara Van Oordt, the organization's head of communication & activities, told The Christian Post in an interview on Tuesday. She also added that current events are signs in scripture "that the Messiah will soon come – that Jesus will come again."
"For two thousand years, there hasn't been the state of Israel, and now everything is coming to fulfillment," Van Oordt added. "I really believe that this is one of the signs of the End Times." more >>

Much of the inspiration for the FOX network's new show "Sleepy Hollow," a modern-day police drama twist on the classic short story by Washington Irving, was drawn from the Bible, specifically the Book of Revelation and end times, the show's producers said in a recent interview.
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, executive producers of "Sleepy Hollow," said in a recent interview that they took the plot of the original "Sleepy Hollow" short story and added biblical themes to create their drama adaptation for the FOX network.
The original "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" was written by American writer Washington Irving in 1820 and follows the protagonist Ichabod Crane, a Connecticut school master who is seeking the hand of Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter of a wealthy farmer in rural New York, in marriage. Crane, who is in competition with Abraham Van Brunt for Van Tassel's hand, is eventually scared out of town by a headless horseman ghost riding in the night. more >>
The question of whether or not the current events taking place in Syria are connected to the End Times is a "legitimate question," says an author and expert on the Middle East and End Times prophecy.
Joel C. Rosenberg, New York Times bestselling author of books such as The Last Days and Epicenter, and founder of the pro-Israel The Joshua Fund, told The Christian Post that such speculations should be taken with caution, but are legitimate ponderings. "I think we have to be very careful not to overreach or to sensationalize a terrible situation that's happening to real people right now and to draw a conclusion too quickly," said Rosenberg. "That being said, the prophecies of Isaiah 17 and Jeremiah 49 are very important. They speak to the utter destruction and judgment of the city of Damascus at some point in the End Times future."
Rosenberg, whose bestselling novels often feature end times themes, also told CP that "these prophecies have never been fulfilled in history so far." more >>
