  • 00:16 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED, FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:39 WITH DR. JEFFREY SEIF HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:45 JEFFREY SEIF HERE AND I AM PLEASED TO WELCOME YOU AGAIN TO ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 00:52 WE HAVE SOME REALLY INTERESTING STUFF TO PRESENT I MIGHT ADD.
  • 00:57 A LOT OF TIMES I'LL CLIMB AROUND THE PAGES OF BIBLICAL LITERATURE CLIMB AROUND ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES IN ISRAEL, BUT HERE WE'RE CLIMBING AROUND THE NEWS.
  • 01:07 THE LORD GRACED US WITH FASCINATING INTERVIEWS.
  • 01:11 DANNY AYALON IS THE FORMER ISRAELI AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS AND NOW THE DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER.
  • 01:22 THOSE OF YOU CURIOUS HOW MODERN ISRAEL LOOKS AT THE WORLD AND LOOKS AT THE WAY THE WORLD LOOKS AT ISRAEL... WELL FOR THOSE OF YOU INTERESTED IN THAT HAVE A LOOK AT THIS AS WE HEAR FROM THIS FORMER AMBASSADOR THIS DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER OF THE NATION STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 01:50 PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU SIR.
  • 01:51 CAN YOU GIVE US SOME PERSPECTIVE ON WHERE ISRAEL STANDS IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE REST OF THIS WORLD?
  • 01:57 WELL ISRAEL IS PART OF SIMILAR CIVILIZATIONS.
  • 02:00 CIVILIZATIONS STARTED WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE ACTUALLY SO WE ARE PART OF THE CIVILIZED INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND YOU CAN SEE IT WHEN IT COMES TO A DECISION AGAINST IRAN, ISRAEL FOLLOWS THE LEAD OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE OTHER POWERS INTERNATIONALLY AND YOU SEE IT ON THE WAR OF TERRORISM.
  • 02:23 AND THE FACT THAT WE HAVE BEEN ATTACKED AND WE ARE STILL UNDER ATTACK FROM ALL THESE EXTREME ISLAMIST TERROR ORGANIZATIONS WHETHER IT'S FROM LEBANON LIKE THE HEZBOLLAH OR HAMAS FROM GAZA IS BECAUSE TO THEM WE ARE PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY OF WESTERN CIVILIZATIONS WHICH THEY ABHOR AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR THIS PEOPLE THE AYATOLLAHS IN TEHRAN AND THEIR PROXIES WHERE THERE IS THE HEZBOLLAH IN LEBANON OR IN HAMAS, ISLAM AND JIHAD AND IN MANY PALESTINIAN TERROR ORGANIZATIONS... FOR THEM IT'S A ZERO SUM GAME.
  • 03:03 THERE IS NO CO-EXISTENCE, THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE, THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN TOLERANCE AND THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE UP AGAINST HERE.
  • 03:10 AND HERE IN ISRAEL OF COURSE WE APPRECIATE VERY MUCH THE LEADERSHIP OF THE UNITED STATES, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHICH ARE IN MY MIND THE MOST DECENT, THE MOST COURAGEOUS IN THE WORLD.
  • 03:23 THEY ARE THE ONES WHO COULD STAND AND ACTUALLY DID STAND AGAINST WORLD INJUSTICE WHETHER IT WAS NAZISM OR WHETHER IT WAS IN COMMUNISM AND NOW TERRORISM.
  • 03:37 AND WE ARE PROUD TO BE THE UNITED STATES BEST FRIEND AND ALLY HERE IN THIS REGION AND I BELIEVE BEYOND.
  • 03:44 I'M PUZZLED WHY... IT DEFIES REASON THAT PEOPLE JUST WANT TO BE HELL BENT ON CASTIGATING JEWS AND ISRAEL... BECAUSE THERE'S SUCH A STRONG... I MEAN THERE'S ANOTHER SIDE TO THE STORY.
  • 03:57 WHY DOESN'T THE WORLD WANT TO HEAR IT?
  • 03:59 OR WHY DON'T PEOPLE WANT TO TELL IT?
  • 04:01 DO YOU HAVE ANY SENSE OF THAT?
  • 04:02 IT CONFUSES ME.
  • 04:05 WELL FIRST OF ALL I WOULD SAY IT IS BECAUSE THESE AUTOMATIC MAJORITIES THAT THE ARABS AND ISLAMIC COUNTRIES AND NON-DEMOCRATIC COUNTRIES HAVE... LOOK THERE ARE 22 ARAB COUNTRIES WHICH ARE VOTING AS ONE BLOCK.
  • 04:21 THESE 22 ARAB COUNTRIES, THE ARAB LEAGUE COUNTRIES ARE A PART OF A LARGER GROUP CALLED THE OIC, ORGANIZATION OF ISLAMIC STATES, WHICH HAS 57... SO ALREADY YOU HAVE 57 VOTES AGAINST ISRAEL OR AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OR EUROPE FOR THAT MATTER.
  • 04:39 THIS 57 ARE YET PART OF THE LARGER GROUP THAT USED TO BE CALLED "THE GROUP OF 77" OR "THE NON-ALIGNED".
  • 04:47 NOW THERE ARE 118 COUNTRIES IN THIS GROUP.
  • 04:50 SO ALREADY YOU HAVE AN AUTOMATIC MAJORITY... 118 COUNTRIES OUT OF TOTAL OF 192 MEMBER STATES IN THE UNITED NATIONS.
  • 05:00 YOU HAVE ALREADY AN AUTOMATIC MAJORITY AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT IF THEY DECIDED TODAY TO PASS A RESOLUTION THAT THE EARTH IS FLAT THEY WILL SUCCEED.
  • 05:10 NOW WHY DO THEY SUCCEED?
  • 05:12 BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE VOTES BUT ALSO THERE IS NO REAL... I WOULD SAY... CONSCIENCE... WORLD CONSCIENCE... A BEACON THAT WOULD BE OF DECENCY AND HOPE ASIDE FROM THE UNITED STATES THAT WOULD CALL THEIR BLUFF AND WOULD CASTIGATE THEM AND THIS IS BECAUSE MAYBE THERE ARE SOME SPLITS AMONG WESTERN DEMOCRACIES... MAYBE ITS BECAUSE OF CONVENIENCE... MAYBE BECAUSE OF LAZINESS... MAYBE SOME BECAUSE OF VERY NARROW INTERESTS, SHORT TERM INTERESTS... THEY DO NOT WANT TO UPSET THE ARABS... THEY ARE DEPENDENT ON OIL SUPPLY...THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 05:57 BUT IN THE LONG RUN IT IS VERY, VERY... VERY, VERY URGENT AND VERY, VERY IMPORTANT THAT COUNTRIES, LIKE MINDED COUNTRIES...DECENT PEOPLE WOULD PULL TOGETHER... OTHER WISE DIVIDED WE FALL...UNITED WE CAN NOT ONLY SURVIVE BUT THRIVE.
  • 06:24 (Jeff speaking) BEING LIKE MINDED IN JERUSALEM DOESN'T COME ALL THAT EASY.
  • 06:28 CASE IN POINT...THIS ABANDONED HOTEL IN EAST JERUSALEM.
  • 06:33 IT LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING OF A GHOST TOWN AND IN SO MANY WAYS IT IS.
  • 06:39 YOU CAN TELL THAT PEOPLE ARE KEPT OUT BY THE FENCE THAT KEEPS PEOPLE OUT.
  • 06:45 BUT THE FENCE AND THE RUN DOWN NATURE OF THIS STRUCTURE DOESN'T KEEP THIS FROM BEING AT THE HUB OF TENSION AND ACTIVITY EVEN RIGHT UP TO TODAY... ACTIVITY THAT SWEEPS ACROSS THE POND TO THE AMERICAS... AND ACTIVITY THAT SWEEPS BACK HERE TO JERUSALEM.
  • 07:08 AND THIS BEHIND ME IS THE ONCE GREAT "SHEPHERD'S HOTEL" THAT RIGHT NOW IS ABUZZ WITH POLITICAL INTRIGUE AS PEOPLE WRESTLE WITH THE QUESTION, "DO THE JEWS HAVE A RIGHT TO A RESIDENCE HERE?"
  • 07:25 I WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT "HERE" IN A MOMENT BUT LET'S OPEN UP THE EAR FIRST... ZCHARYA IN THE HEBREW... ZECHARIAH IN THE ENGLISH.
  • 07:33 ZCHARYA COMES FROM "ZICHAR" WHICH MEANS "TO REMEMBER".
  • 07:38 AND WHAT DO WE REMEMBER IN ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 12?
  • 07:42 THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "BEHOLD I WILL MAKE JERUSALEM A CUP OF DRUNKENNESS" "TO ALL THE SURROUNDING PEOPLES THAT LAY SIEGE AGAINST JUDAH AND JERUSALEM."
  • 07:53 AND THEN IN VERSE 3 HE SAYS, "THAT ALL THOSE WHO LOOK TO HEAVE IT AWAY WILL SURELY HURT THEMSELVES."
  • 08:01 AND IS IT NOT THE TRUTH TODAY THAT JERUSALEM IS ABUZZ WITH TENSION?
  • 08:07 IT'S THE CAPITAL OF THE JEWISH STATE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE OF THE JEWISH RELIGION.
  • 08:14 IT'S THE PLACE TO WHICH THE SCRIPTURE SAYS JESUS WILL RETURN AS A CAPITAL OF AN ANCESTRAL JEWISH HOMELAND.
  • 08:22 JERUSALEM IS A PLACE OF TENSION.
  • 08:25 HERE BEHIND ME...THE SHEPHERD'S HOTEL WAS ONCE OWNED BY THE GRAND MUFTI.
  • 08:32 NOT A VERY FRIENDLY GUY...A NAZI COLLABORATOR... THIS HOTEL WAS ACQUIRED BY A JEWISH FELLOW, AN AMERICAN NAMED MOSKOWITZ WHO WANTS TO THEN TURN THIS JERUSALEM LOCALE INTO A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT GRINDS TO A HALT AS POLITICAL PRESSURES BROUGHT TO BEAR TO TELL JEWS "OH NO...NO...YOU CAN'T BUILD THERE IN JERUSALEM!"
  • 09:00 IT'S INCREDIBLE... THE WORLD TODAY SEEMS TO HAVE A DECK OF CARDS THAT ARE STACKED AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 09:09 SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
  • 09:11 NOT LONG AGO HUCKABEE WHO WAS A PRESIDENTIAL WANNABE, A FORMER GOVERNOR OF ARKANSAS, CAME HERE IN FACT AND SPONSORED AN EVENT.
  • 09:19 IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT COULD HOUSE MUCH NOW DOES IT?
  • 09:21 BUT HE PUT A DINNER ON.
  • 09:23 AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 09:25 TO DRAW ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT WE INDEED SHOULD BE SUPPORTIVE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, OF THE JEWISH BID TO BUILD IN THEIR OWN CAPITAL CITY.
  • 09:36 IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE BEYOND THE PALE OF REASON NOW DOES IT?
  • 09:40 BUT WE LIVE IN A WORLD TODAY THAT'S NOT DRIVEN BY REASON PEOPLE ARE DRIVEN BY SPIRITS THAT THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND, BY FORCES THAT THEY CAN'T CONTROL AND IT SWEEPS UP EVEN TO HERE, JERUSALEM, EAST JERUSALEM, TO THIS PLACE, THE SHEPHERD'S HOTEL, A PLACE WHERE JEWS ARE LOOKING TO CONSTRUCT WHILE FORCES ARE LOOKING TO DESTRUCT AND OBSTRUCT AND GET IN THE WAY OF THE JEWISH BID FOR RESIDENCY IN THE ANCESTRAL HOMELAND.
  • 10:10 WE CLOSE EVERY PROGRAM SAYING, SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 10:16 AND WHEN I STAND HERE IN FRONT OF THE SHEPHERD'S HOTEL I'M REMINDED THAT INDEED WE DO NEED TO KEEP JERUSALEM IN OUR PRAYERS.
  • 10:27 IN PSALM CHAPTER 2 THE AUTHOR ASKS A QUESTION THAT I'VE WONDERED ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION... "WHY DO THE NATIONS RAGE?"
  • 10:37 AND PARTICULARLY, WHY DO THEY RAGE AGAINST JEWS, AGAINST ISRAEL AND PLOT ISRAEL'S DEMISE?
  • 10:47 I THINK THAT PEOPLE ARE DRIVEN BY FORCES THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND, BY SPIRITS THAT THEY CAN'T CONTROL.
  • 10:56 PEOPLE ARE PROPELLED INTO A WORLD OF MADNESS.
  • 11:01 AND THAT'S THE BAD NEWS.
  • 11:03 THE GOOD NEWS, HOWEVER, IS THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE DRIVEN BY A NEW SPIRIT, FOR SCRIPTURE PROMISES THAT GOD'S PEOPLE WILL GET A NEW HEART AND A NEW SPIRIT AND WE INDEED ARE TRANSFORMED.
  • 11:18 I MENTION THIS BECAUSE IN ISRAEL TODAY THERE'S NOT JUST BAD NEWS HAPPENING, IT'S NOT JUST THE STORY OF THE WORLD COMING UNGLUED BUT RATHER, INCREASINGLY MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE COMING TO JERUSALEM TO WORSHIP THE GOD OF ISRAEL THERE AND TO STAND BEHIND THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO ARE MAKING A BID THERE, A BID THAT'S BORN OUT OF PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT I MIGHT ADD.
  • 11:46 THEY COME IN DROVES BY THE THOUSANDS AND ANNUALLY BY THE TENS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS.
  • 11:53 OUR FRIEND, DAVID DOLAN, A CBS NEWS CORRESPONDENT WHO WORKS FOR OTHERS AS WELL WAS THERE COVERING THIS FANTASTIC MARCH PUT TOGETHER BY THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM.
  • 12:08 WHEN YOU HEAR HIM AND LOOK AT THESE PICTURES YOU MIGHT SEE YOURSELF THERE CAUSE IT'S A STORY THAT'S CHOCK FULL OF JEWISH LOVING, ISRAEL LOVING CHRISTIAN PEOPLE.
  • 12:17 AND OFF TO THAT STORY WE GO.
  • 12:22 I'M HERE AT GAN SACHER WHICH IS SACHER PARK IN THE CENTER OF JERUSALEM.
  • 12:27 RIGHT ON THE HILL BEHIND ME IS THE KNESSET, ISRAELI GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS, BUT HERE IN THE PARK TODAY, THE DAY OF THE JERUSALEM MARCH, IT'S FILLED WITH PEOPLE NOT ONLY FROM ALL OVER ISRAEL AS ON A NORMAL DAY, NOT ONLY JEWS FROM ABROAD BUT WITH THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS THAT HAVE COME UP TO CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 12:50 YOU COULD SEE BEHIND ME THE DIFFERENT FLAGS, THE DIFFERENT BANNERS ANNOUNCING THE COUNTRIES, DOZEN OF COUNTRIES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD PEOPLE HAVE COME.
  • 13:02 A CONTINGENCY UP HERE FROM CHINA... THAT WAS UNHEARD OF JUST A FEW YEARS AGO.
  • 13:08 COMING HERE TO CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES WITH THE LOCAL PEOPLE, THE LOCAL CITIZENS OF JERUSALEM, THE CITY I CALL HOME.
  • 13:17 AND WE'LL BE MARCHING FROM THIS PARK IN JUST A FEW MINUTES UP THE HILL TOWARDS THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM MARCHING DOWN THE CENTRAL STREETS OF JERUSALEM GOING DOWN KING GEORGE STREET, THEN TO JAFFA ROAD AND ENDING UP RIGHT OUTSIDE THE WALLS OF THE OLD CITY JERUSALEM.
  • 13:36 PEOPLE WILL GATHER THERE, LISTEN TO SPEECHES, LISTEN TO MUSIC, BUT MAINLY IT'S ABOUT THE MARCH.
  • 13:43 THE PEOPLE HAVE COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD FROM EVERY CONTINENT, A HUGE CONTINGENCY FROM BRAZIL, A HUGE GROUP FROM AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, THE FARTHEST REACHES OF THE EARTH, AND OF COURSE THE UNITED STATES AND EUROPE AND AFRICA COMING HERE TO CELEBRATE THE UNITY OF JERUSALEM AND THE FACT THAT ISRAEL AGAIN LIVES AND JERUSALEM IS ITS HEART.
  • 14:11 I'M FROM SINGAPORE.
  • 14:13 WE ARE HERE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE JERUSALEM MARCH.
  • 14:15 I'M FROM FINLAND AND WE ARE ALL HERE FOR TO PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 14:20 AND WE ARE FROM PARIS AND WE ARE HERE TO SHOW THAT ISRAEL IS NOT ALONE.
  • 14:26 WELL I'M FROM GHANA.
  • 14:28 I'M HERE BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN GOD'S PEOPLE ISRAEL AND I BELIEVE IN THE SUPPORT OF THE JEWS.
  • 14:33 WE HAVE COME HERE TO SUPPORT ISRAEL AND TO BLESS ISRAEL AND WE LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 14:39 WE COME BECAUSE ISRAEL IS IN OUR HEARTS; WE LOVE THE ISRAELI PEOPLE AND WE PRAY CONTINUALLY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 14:48 WE LOVE ISRAEL BECAUSE ISRAEL IS THE CHOSEN OF THE LORD.
  • 14:53 YES, WE LOVE THIS CITY OF DAVID.
  • 14:55 THE BRAZILIAN PEOPLE LOVES ISRAEL... PRAYS FOR ISRAEL.
  • 14:59 I COME TO JERUSALEM TO CELEBRATE SUKKOTH, FEAST OF TABERNACLES, TO STAND WITH THE ISRAELIS AND LET THEM KNOW THAT I LOVE THEM AND CARE FOR THEM AND THEY'RE NOT ALONE.
  • 15:08 YOU SEE ALL THE NATIONS GETTING TOGETHER... I HEARD THIS IS ABOUT 70 NATIONS COMING TOGETHER... EVERYBODY... SO THAT IS GREAT INDEED.
  • 15:14 AND IT'S JUST WONDERFUL TO SEE PEOPLE FROM SO MANY DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE WORLD LIVING SIDE BY SIDE AND HAVING A GREAT TIME.
  • 15:21 AND I REALLY BELIEVE THIS IS A MESSAGE WE'RE SENDING OUT TO THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 15:24 EVERY NATIONS AND TRIBES WILL COME TO JERUSALEM TO WORSHIP THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 15:31 THAT'S WHY WE ARE HERE... TO LOVE ISRAEL, TO SUPPORT ISRAEL AND TO BLESS ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM.
  • 15:39 WE CAME HERE TO LOVE THEM.
  • 15:41 WE BLESS ISRAEL AND ISRAEL BLESSES US.
  • 15:44 (Singing about Israel)
  • 15:52 I'M HERE TODAY TO MARCH TO SUPPORT THE UNITY OF JERUSALEM AND THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 15:57 WE'VE COME REALLY TO SHOW OUR SOLIDARITY... THAT WE REALLY BELIEVE THIS IS THE CENTER OF THE WORLD THERE... THAT EVERYBODY'S LOOKING RIGHT NOW AT JERUSALEM WONDERING HOW TO BRING PEACE HERE.
  • 16:10 I BELIEVE IN THE GOD OF ISRAEL AND WANT TO COMFORT AND TO ENCOURAGE THE ISRAELI PEOPLE THAT WE LOVE AND THAT GOD LOVES YOU, THAT HE WILL KEEP ALL HIS PROMISES.
  • 16:19 SO NEVER GIVE IN TO THE PRESSURE OF AMERICA OR EUROPE.
  • 16:22 I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS OBTAINED ISRAEL TO LEAD THE REVIVAL OF THE COMING OF JESUS AND AS SUCH I BELIEVE THAT EVERY THING MUST BE DONE TO SUPPORT THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 16:33 GOD HAS A PLAN FOR ISRAEL... HE'S STILL PART OF THE PLAN THAT HE'S GOING TO COME BACK TO THIS CITY IN MIGHT AND IN POWER AND RULE FROM THIS POINT AND WE WANT TO BE THERE TO SEE IT.
  • 16:43 WE KNOW THAT YESHUA MESHIA BEN DAVID WILL COME SOON AND WILL HELP ALL ISRAEL.

  • 19:22 YOU CAN GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT WWW.LEVITT.COM IF YOU LIKE THE NEWS, IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN NEWS AS IT RELATES TO THE JEWS... GO THAT WAY.
  • 19:32 IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN BIBLICAL NEWS BY THE WAY WE HAVE AN OFFER ON THIS PROGRAM... KEEP THAT PEN HANDY BECAUSE YOU'LL WANT TO PICK IT UP LATER.
  • 19:40 IT'S CALLED "THE AGE OF TERROR".
  • 19:43 IN THIS 8 PART SERIES THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT INTERVIEWS A PALESTINIAN TERRORIST... FORMER THAT IS... NAMED WALID SHOEBAT.
  • 19:52 WALID IS A GREAT GUY... THIS IS A GREAT STORY... AND IT'S YOURS BY PICKING UP THE OFFER LATER.
  • 20:00 THAT'S LATER.
  • 20:01 COMING UP RIGHT NOW IS A FRIEND OF ISRAEL, MALCOLM HEDDING, THE DIRECTOR OF THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY, JERUSALEM.
  • 20:12 MALCOLM IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU.
  • 20:14 AND WITH YOU JEFF.
  • 20:16 THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MINISTRIES IN ALL THE WORLD.
  • 20:22 I GET A LITTLE INTERNET THING FROM YOU I THINK ON A DAILY BASIS TO GET A WINDOW INTO WHAT IS HAPPENING.
  • 20:27 CAN YOU TELL US WHAT THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY IS FOR THOSE THAT DON'T KNOW?
  • 20:32 WELL THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND WORDS.
  • 20:34 WE APPRECIATE THAT.
  • 20:35 THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY, JERUSALEM IS TRULY THAT... IT REPRESENTS THE LOVE AND THE CONCERN THAT CHRISTIANS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE FOR THIS NATION BECAUSE THESE CHRISTIANS BELIEVE THAT THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ISRAEL IN OUR TIME IS NOT A POLITICAL ACCIDENT BUT THE FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S WORD AND PROMISE THAT HE GAVE TO ABRAHAM 4,000 YEARS AGO AND THEREFORE THESE CHRISTIANS EXPRESS THEIR LOVE, THEIR CONCERN, THEIR PRAYERS AND ALL THE ACTION ON BEHALF OF ISRAEL.
  • 21:10 VERY OFTEN THROUGH THIS ORGANIZATION WHICH IS SITUATED HERE IN THIS BEAUTIFUL PART OF JERUSALEM IN THE GERMAN COLONY.
  • 21:17 AND WE ARE IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD AN INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY.
  • 21:22 THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY FIRST OF ALL IS PROBABLY MOST FAMOUS FOR IT'S HIGH PROFILE PUBLIC EVENT WHICH IS THE ANNUAL CHRISTIAN CELEBRATION OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES WHEREBY WE BRING THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS HERE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO PHYSICALLY DEMONSTRATE ON THE STREETS OF ISRAEL THEIR LOVE AND THEIR CONCERN FOR THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 21:43 LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION TO GET AWAY FROM ALL THE GOOD NEWS... HOW DO YOU PERCEIVE THE CHURCH'S RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL ON THE WHOLE?
  • 21:51 DOES EVERYONE THINK LIKE YOU?
  • 21:53 WELL I THINK OF COURSE A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T THINK LIKE US.
  • 21:56 WE REPRESENT A STREAM OF CHRISTIANITY THAT REJECTS WHAT WE CALL REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY AND REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY SEES NO PARTICULAR DIVINE INTERVENTION OR SIGNIFICANCE IN THE MODERN DAY RESTORATION OF THE JEWISH STATE.
  • 22:12 BUT OF COURSE WE DO BECAUSE WE BASE OUR THEOLOGY SQUARELY ON A PROMISE THAT GOD GAVE TO ABRAHAM 4,000 YEARS AGO.
  • 22:21 AND SO THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIANS WITHIN THE HISTORICAL CHRISTIAN STREAMS AND ELSEWHERE WHO DON'T SEE IT AS WE SEE IT TODAY.
  • 22:30 AND OF COURSE THERE ARE EVEN SOME CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS WHO HAVE A MORE POLITICAL IDEA OF WHAT CHRISTIAN ZIONISM IS, WHEREAS WE SEE CHRISTIAN ZIONISM AS BASED SQUARELY AND FIRMLY ON A BIBLICAL FOUNDATION AND THAT THERE ARE MANY FACTORS THAT ARE PLAYING INTO ISRAEL'S MODERN DAY RESTORATION TODAY.
  • 22:51 GIVEN THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN POLITICALLY NOW... TO SHIFT GEARS JUST A TAD BIT... ARE YOU CONCERNED THAT ISRAEL IS INCREASINGLY ISOLATED AND EVANGELICAL PRAYER WARRIORS ARE RUNNING OUT OF STEAM AND IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE NEEDLE IS POINTING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION?
  • 23:08 ABSOLUTELY, I THINK WE'RE LIVING IN ISRAEL'S MOST DANGEROUS HOUR JEFF AND THAT IS THE THREAT OF AHMADINEJAD WHICH IS NOT JUST A ONE OFF THREAT.
  • 23:19 AS YOU KNOW ALMOST MONTH AFTER MONTH HE RENEWS HIS THREAT AGAINST THE JEWISH STATE IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER WHICH BASICALLY MEANS AS HE HAS STATED THAT ISRAEL SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE MAP OF THE EARTH.
  • 23:34 SO THERE'S HOSTILES, THERE'S BELLIGERENCE IN THE WORLD?
  • 23:36 THAT'S RIGHT AND EVEN WHEN HE RUNS HIS COURSE IT'S GOING TO EMERGE AFRESH >>ABSOLUTELY FROM SOME OTHER QUARTER, SOME OTHER ISSUE.
  • 23:43 AND THE REAL EVIDENCE OF THIS IS IN THE LAST FEW YEARS IN 2006 AND OF COURSE AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR, THE END OF 2008, ISRAEL HAS FOUGHT TO PROXY WARS WITH IRAN.
  • 23:56 THE ONE WAS WITH HEZBOLLAH IN 2006 IN THE NORTH OF THE COUNTRY AND THE LATEST ONE WAS AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR AGAINST HAMAS.
  • 24:05 BOTH OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS ARE IRANIAN FUNDED AND WITH MILITARY EQUIPMENT, ROCKETS OF ONE TYPE OR ANOTHER THAT HAVE COME FROM IRAN.
  • 24:14 SO IN ESSENCE ISRAEL HAS BEEN AND IS AT WAR WITH IRAN.
  • 24:18 IT'S NOT A WAR THAT BEGINS WITH THE PUSH OF A BUTTON.
  • 24:22 THE WAR WAS TURNED ON... THE MOTOR WAS TURNED ON YEARS AGO.
  • 24:25 THE MOTOR WAS TURNED ON SOME YEARS AGO AND IT'S AN INTERESTING THING BECAUSE ISRAEL IS NO COMMON BORDER WITH IRAN, NO COMMON FIGHT WITH IRAN.
  • 24:34 THIS IS PURELY A RADICAL ISLAMIC AGENDA FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE JEWISH STATE.
  • 24:40 AS I TELL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, AHMADINEJAD HAS A REAL PROBLEM BECAUSE HE WILL HAVE TO REMOVE GOD FROM HIS THRONE BEFORE HE REMOVES ISRAEL FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
  • 24:58 (ZOLA PLAYING THE FLUTE)
  • 25:35 AND THAT WAS ZOLA LEVITT... THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT IN THE LAND THAT HE LOVED.
  • 25:42 I HOPE YOU'RE COMING TO LOVE IT TOO.
  • 25:45 WE LIVE IN A WORLD TODAY WHERE SO MANY ARE GIVEN TO DISPARAGING THE JEWISH PEOPLE, CASTING ASPERSIONS ON THE MODERN NATION STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 25:57 IN A WORLD THAT'S GIVEN TO ABANDONMENT AND BETRAYAL AND SO MUCH DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 26:02 THOSE OF US THAT HAVE SIMILAR WORLD VIEWS NEED TO BAND TOGETHER.
  • 26:09 I HOPE YOU WILL VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT WWW.LEVITT.COM.
  • 26:14 I HOPE YOU'LL CALL US ON 1-800-WONDERS AND WANT TO BE CONNECTED TO US.
  • 26:20 IN A WORLD WHERE ISRAEL HAS SO FEW FRIENDS THOSE OF US THAT LOVE THE LORD AND LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WE NEED TO BAND TOGETHER AND TOGETHER LIFT UP THE TESTIMONY OF GOD'S LOVE FOR THE WORLD AND GOD'S LOVE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 26:38 THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GOING WITH US ON THE JOURNEY IN OUR TELEVISION PROGRAM AS YOU FOLLOW US ALONG.
  • 26:45 AS YOU GO NOW MAY I SAY GOD BLESS YOU... MAY HE BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU.
  • 26:50 AND AS YOU GO...AS ALWAYS WHEN YOU GO I SAY SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
