BERGSMA, William




Author Tags: Religion

William Bergsma, a native of the Netherlands, moved to Canada in 1953 at the age of 25. He met the woman who would become his wife, Jenny, on the ship he immigrated on. In 1977 they moved to Nanaimo, where they live today.

Bergsma's self-published book We Have Also a More Sure Word of Prophecy (2 Peter 1:19) is the product of his interest in end-of-time prophecies, and his lifetime of Christian belief.

We Have Also A More Sure Word of Prophecy 2 Peter 1:19
Article



Nanaimo self-publisher William Bergsma concurs in We Have Also A More Sure Word of Prophecy 2 Peter 1:19 (Xulon Press $13.99), surely one of the least-catchy titles in recent memory. With extensive Biblical quotations, Bergsma matches prophecies to current events.

“I chose as a front cover for my book the map of Iran,” he writes, “showing a nuclear explosion, because according to bible prophecy Iran will attack Israel with nuclear weapons in “the latter days” together with Russia….

“The latter years in the bible means the time period, when for the first time in 2432 years since Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem in 605 BC and took the Jews to Babylon, the Jews have again a country called Israel, followed by the return of Jerusalem during the Six Day War in 1967.”

Now retired, Dutch-born Bergsma is a devout member of the Christian Reformed Church. He immigrated to Canada at age 25.
