Episode: “Promised Forever”
At the Valley of Megiddo—Armageddon—we review God’s Land promises to David and Solomon and glance at clues that speak of victories yet to come.
Series:Eretz Israel (The Land of Israel)”
In this eight-part television series, Dr. Jeffrey Seif takes viewers through Eretz Israel (The Land of Israel). By exploring the Bible’s accounts of the Holy Land’s past, present, and prophetic future, we discover an inextricable relationship between the people of Israel and Eretz Israel (The Land of Israel). Former CBS correspondent David Dolan helps explore the modern-day struggles that accompany the re-establishment of the ancestral Jewish homeland. On-location TV footage, dramas, and wonderful music punctuate the series.

  • 00:56 HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:58 JEFFREY SEIF HERE
  • 00:59 WITH ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 01:01 THIS TIME THE 6TH OF AN 8 PART SERIES CALLED "ERETZ ISRAEL".
  • 01:07 "ERETZ"...WHAT'S THAT?...
  • 01:09 YOU SPEAKING IN TONGUES BUDDY?
  • 01:11 YES,THAT'S THE HEBREW TONGUE.
  • 01:13 IT MEANS "LAND".
  • 01:14 AND WE'RE TAKING YOU THERE.
  • 01:17 NOT JUST THERE
  • 01:18 BUT TODAY A FASCINATING PLACE THERE CALLED ARMAGEDDON.
  • 01:23 HEBREW "HAR" MEANS "MOUNTAIN"
  • 01:26 AND "MEGIDDO" IT'S A PLACE WHERE MANY BATTLES WERE FOUGHT.
  • 01:30 SPEAKING OF WHICH NOW WE'LL BEGIN WITH ANCIENT BATTLES WITH THE PHILISTINES
  • 01:35 AS WE CONSIDER WARS LONG AGO.
  • 01:42 KING DAVID SITS ON HIS THRONE
  • 01:45 KNOWING FULL WELL THAT HIS KINGDOM HAD NOT COME EASILY;
  • 01:48 ACCEPT BY THE STRENGTH OF THE LORD.
  • 01:51 AND IT CAME TO PASS THAT DAVID SMOTE THE PHILISTINES AND SUBDUED THEM.
  • 01:56 AND HE SMOTE MOAB.
  • 01:58 AND HE SLEWED THE SYRIANS TWO AND TWENTY THOUSAND MEN.
  • 02:03 AND ALL THEY OF EDOM BECAME DAVID'S SERVANTS
  • 02:07 AND THE LORD PRESERVED DAVID WITHER SO EVER HE WENT.
  • 02:12 AND DAVID REIGNED OVER ALL ISRAEL
  • 02:15 AND DAVID EXECUTED JUDGMENT AND JUSTICE UNTO ALL HIS PEOPLE.
  • 02:20 AND DAVID'S SONS WERE CHIEF RULERS.
  • 02:28 THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF WARS
  • 02:30 AND RUMORS OF WARS
  • 02:31 BUT FOR DAVID
  • 02:32 IT WAS MORE THAN JUST A RUMOR
  • 02:34 CAUSE HE FORGED OUT A KINGDOM BY DINT OF HIS DETERMINATION
  • 02:38 AND WITH GOD'S HELP OF COURSE, HIM BEING THE ANOINTED ONE OF GOD.
  • 02:42 WELL RIGHT HERE, ARMAGEDDON,
  • 02:44 HIS SON SOLOMON LEARNED ABOUT THAT AND MORE.
  • 02:48 COME WITH ME NOW
  • 02:49 AS WE GO OFF TO ARMAGEDDON.
  • 03:26 DAVID CARVED IT OUT...
  • 03:28 SOLOMON SOLIDIFIED IT.
  • 03:30 TO WHAT EXACTLY AM I REFERRING?
  • 03:33 LET ME SHOW YOU.
  • 03:42 SOLOMON'S KINGDOM
  • 03:44 THERE'S SOMETHING OF A VAST EXPANSE.
  • 03:46 MEGIDDO IS SOMETHING AT THE HEARTLAND OF IT.
  • 03:49 HE HAD TO FORTIFY, DEFEND AND USE THIS
  • 03:53 TO HOLD OFF INVADING FORCES FROM THE NORTH AND FROM THE EAST.
  • 03:57 INTO MEGIDDO WE'LL GO.
  • 04:20 IT'S CALLED "THE PROMISED LAND"
  • 04:23 AND THE REASON WHY IT'S CALLED "THE PROMISED LAND"
  • 04:25 IS BECAUSE GOD PROMISED THAT LAND.
  • 04:27 AND HE PROMISED IT TO A PARTICULAR PEOPLE
  • 04:31 WHO WERE DESTINED TO MAKE A BID AT A PARTICULAR PLACE.
  • 04:35 AND IF YOU'RE GOING TO FIGHT TO SECURE A TOEHOLD IN A REGION
  • 04:39 YOU'RE GOING TO NEED SPACE TO FIGHT FROM.
  • 04:42 HENCE, MEGIDDO HERE...
  • 04:43 ARMAGEDDON...
  • 04:45 A CHARIOT CITY...
  • 04:47 AMONG OTHER THINGS A PLACE
  • 04:48 THAT HAS BEEN A SANCTUARY
  • 04:50 FOR MANY A KING
  • 04:52 AS EVIDENCED BY LAYER UPON LAYER
  • 04:55 THAT HARKS TO KINGS THAT CAME HERE,
  • 04:57 SECURED, RE-SECURED AND DEVELOPED THIS PIECE OF LAND.
  • 05:03 THIS PIECE OF LAND IS A FASCINATING PIECE BY THE WAY.
  • 05:06 IT EXTENDS ON THE ONE HAND OVER TOWARD EGYPT.
  • 05:09 THIS PROMISED LAND THEN EXTENDS UPWARD TOWARD THE EUPHRATES
  • 05:13 AND IT EXTENDS EASTWARD BY THE WAY
  • 05:15 BEYOND WHAT WE CALL THE "JORDAN RIVER" TODAY.
  • 05:19 IT'S A PIECE OF LAND THAT WAS GIVEN TO A PARTICULAR PERSON.
  • 05:22 AS I NOTED A MINUTE AGO,
  • 05:23 A PROMISED LAND.
  • 05:26 OH, IT'S ONE THING
  • 05:27 TO SAY THAT IT'S MINE,
  • 05:28 ITS ANOTHER THING
  • 05:29 TO HOLD OFF BELLIGERENTS
  • 05:31 THAT ARE MINDED TO SAY THAT'S NOT THE CASE.
  • 05:33 AND THAT TENSION...
  • 05:34 THAT BACK AND FORTH
  • 05:35 HAS BEEN THE STORY OF THE AGES
  • 05:36 WHICH IS WHY, BY THE WAY,
  • 05:38 WHEN YOU LOOK WITH ME IN THE BOOK OF CHRONICLES,
  • 05:41 II CHRONICLES CHAPTER 9, VERSE 25,
  • 05:44 WE'RE TOLD THAT SOLOMON,
  • 05:46 WHO UNDER HIS ADMINISTRATION THE KINGDOM REALLY WAS EXPANDED.
  • 05:49 IT HAD DIMINISHED SOME AFTERWARD.
  • 05:51 UNDER HIS ADMINISTRATION
  • 05:53 WE SPEAK HERE OF THOUSANDS OF STALLS FOR HORSES, FOR CHARIOTS.
  • 05:57 AND IT'S SOLOMON WHO WILL PARTICIPATE
  • 06:00 IN WHAT WE CALL "CHARIOT CITIES" HERE IN THE BIBLICAL TEXT.
  • 06:03 AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 06:04 BECAUSE FROM CITIES LIKE THIS
  • 06:07 AND ALONG ROADS LIKE THIS
  • 06:09 FORCES HAD TO GO OUT TO PROTECT THE WORLD FROM BELLIGERENTS.
  • 06:13 AND SOLOMON DID THAT DURING HIS ADMINISTRATION CERTAINLY.
  • 06:16 WE'RE TOLD THAT, FORTIFIED AS HE WAS, AND STRENGTHENED AS HE WAS
  • 06:21 BY CERTAIN OUTPOST CITIES LIKE THIS,
  • 06:23 WE'RE TOLD THAT SOLOMON REIGNED IN VERSE 26
  • 06:27 OVER ALL THE KINGS FROM THE RIVER.
  • 06:30 AND THE RIVER HERE IS HARKING TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER.
  • 06:35 THE WORD "EBREW" OR "HEBREW" MEANS "BEYOND THE RIVER"
  • 06:40 AND THE ANCESTORS CAME FROM BEYOND THE RIVER
  • 06:42 AND SECURED A PLACE HERE
  • 06:44 THAT WAS BEQUEATHED BY GOD IN THE LAND OF CANAAN.
  • 06:47 AND HERE WE'RE TOLD
  • 06:49 THAT THE REIGN OF SOLOMON
  • 06:51 EXTENDED UP TO THE RIVER ON THE NORTHERN AND EASTERN FRONT
  • 06:56 TO THE LAND OF THE PHILISTINES.
  • 07:00 AND THIS HARKS, BY THE WAY,
  • 07:01 TO THE AREAS THAT RUN ALONG THE SEA
  • 07:04 WHERE THERE WAS SOME MAJOR CITIES THERE.
  • 07:07 "GATH" IS MADE FAMILIAR BECAUSE OF GOLIATH;
  • 07:10 "ASHKELON", "ASHDOD" AND OTHERS...
  • 07:13 THE PHILISTINE NEVER HAD SWAY OVER THIS WHOLE REGION
  • 07:16 BUT THEY DID HAVE A TOE HOLD OF IT.
  • 07:17 BUT HERE THE CHRONICLER WANTS TO SAY ON THE ONE HAND
  • 07:20 THE KINGDOM EXTENDED UP TO THE EUPHRATES
  • 07:22 AND THEN IN CANAAN PROPER,
  • 07:24 THE COASTLINE AREAS WHAT HE CALLS
  • 07:27 WHERE THE PHILISTINE REIGNS
  • 07:29 AND THEN HE NOTES AS WELL
  • 07:30 AS FAR AS THE BORDER OF EGYPT.
  • 07:34 THERE'S A RIVER THERE THAT DEMARCATES THE BORDER
  • 07:37 AND IT SHOWS SOMETHING OF AN EXPANDED KINGDOM,
  • 07:40 A KINGDOM THAT GOD GAVE TO A PARTICULAR PEOPLE...
  • 07:43 AVARAM...ABRAHAM...
  • 07:45 WHOM THE LORD SAID,
  • 07:46 "COME WITH ME ON A JOURNEY TO A LAND THAT I WILL SHOW YOU".
  • 07:50 AND ABRAHAM ROLLED THE DICE AGAINST AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE
  • 07:53 AND HE CAME AND WALKED THIS LAND.
  • 07:56 AND NOW, SOME CENTURIES LATER...
  • 07:58 NOW...I MEAN I'M HARKING BACK TO SOLOMON'S ERA.
  • 08:01 MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED SINCE
  • 08:03 BUT WE SEE THE STORY
  • 08:05 OF GOD WATCHING OVER HIS WORD TO PERFORM IT
  • 08:08 AS A CERTAIN PEOPLE STRUGGLE
  • 08:10 AGAINST SINS IN THEIR OWN PERSONS,
  • 08:12 AGAINST CIRCUMSTANCES THAT IMPOSE UPON THEM.
  • 08:15 DIFFICULTIES, STRUGGLES, TRIALS AND ALL...
  • 08:17 GOD WATCHES OVER HIS WORD TO PERFORM IT
  • 08:21 TO GIVE THIS LAND TO A PEOPLE
  • 08:26 AND TO SECURE HIS PEOPLE IN HIS LAND
  • 08:30 AS A TESTIMONY TO HIS GREATNESS...
  • 08:32 GREATNESS THAT EXTENDED TO THE PAST,
  • 08:35 TO THE PRESENT
  • 08:36 AND THAT WILL BE KNOWN THE MORE SO IN THE FUTURE
  • 08:39 AS WE CONSIDER THE TESTIMONY OF GOD AT WORK IN THE WORLD HERE
  • 08:43 "B'ERETZ YISRAEL"...
  • 08:46 "IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL".

  • 09:36 (JEFF SPEAKING)
  • 09:38 THIS IS THE BEAUTIFUL GOLAN HEIGHTS IN NORTHERN ISRAEL,
  • 09:42 AN IMPORTANT PART OF DAVID AND SOLOMON'S KINGDOM NEARLY 3,000 YEARS AGO.
  • 09:47 AS NOTED ON RECENT PROGRAMS
  • 09:49 THIS LAND WAS ALSO INCLUDED
  • 09:51 IN GOD'S COVENANT WITH MOSES AND JOSHUA
  • 09:54 AS AN INHERITANCE FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.
  • 09:57 DAVID DOLAN JOINS US NOW FROM THIS STRATEGIC SITE
  • 10:01 WHERE HE CONTINUES HIS CHRONOLOGY
  • 10:03 OF THE MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 10:07 I'M STANDING IN AN ISRAELI
  • 10:08 ARMY BUNKER ON THE GOLAN HEIGHTS
  • 10:10 ON ONE OF THE
  • 10:11 HIGHEST HILLSHERE.
  • 10:12 BEHIND ME IS DAMASCUS AND SYRIA
  • 10:14 ABOUT 35 MILES AWAY.
  • 10:15 WE'LL TALK MORE ABOUT THEM
  • 10:17 IN A FEW MINUTES.
  • 10:18 IN THE EARLY 1950'S...
  • 10:20 650,000 JEWS CAME TO THIS LAND FROM ARAB COUNTRIES,
  • 10:24 MANY OF THEM KICKED OUT IN ANGER
  • 10:26 BECAUSE THE ARABS WERE SO UPSET
  • 10:28 THAT THE STATE OF ISRAEL HAD BEEN REBORN.
  • 10:30 AND THEY SETTLED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
  • 10:32 MEANWHILE ARAB TERROR ATTACKS INCREASED.
  • 10:34 OVER 1,000 JEWS WERE KILLED BETWEEN 1951 AND 55...
  • 10:38 400 OF THEM FROM THE GAZA STRIP.
  • 10:41 MEANWHILE IN EGYPT
  • 10:42 GAMAL NASSER FORGED TIES
  • 10:44 WITH THE SOVIET UNION
  • 10:45 AND STARTED TO RECEIVE WEAPONS FROM THEM.
  • 10:48 HE NATIONALIZED THE SUEZ CANAL WHICH THE BRITISH HAD BUILT
  • 10:51 ANGERING BRITAIN VERY, VERY MUCH.
  • 10:53 A SECRET PLAN WAS DEVISED
  • 10:55 BETWEEN BRITAIN, FRANCE AND ISRAEL
  • 10:57 TO STRIKE AT EGYPTIAN FORCES
  • 11:00 IN THE GAZA STRIP
  • 11:01 AND THE SINAI PENINSULA
  • 11:02 AND GET BACK THE SUEZ CANAL.
  • 11:04 IN OCTOBER 29, 1956
  • 11:06 THAT WAR BEGUN.
  • 11:08 BUT THE UNITED STATES,
  • 11:10 DWIGHT EISENHOWER,
  • 11:11 WAS VERY UPSET OVER THIS.
  • 11:12 HE FEARED AND EAST-WEST CLASH,
  • 11:14 A SUPER POWER WAR
  • 11:15 AND HE BASICALLY ORDERED FRANCE AND BRITAIN
  • 11:18 TO CALL OFF THEIR FORCES
  • 11:19 AND ISRAEL TO STOP ITS OFFENSIVE.
  • 11:21 THE ISRAELIS HAD GOTTEN ALL THE WAY TO THE SUEZ CANAL.
  • 11:24 AND IN EARLY NOVEMBER
  • 11:26 A CEASE FIRE WAS DECLARED
  • 11:27 AND BY MARCH THE NEXT YEAR
  • 11:29 ISRAELI FORCES HAD COMPLETELY WITHDRAWN FROM THE LAND THEY CAPTURED,
  • 11:32 THE GAZA STRIP
  • 11:33 AND THE SINAI PENINSULA.
  • 11:35 IN THE SUMMER OF 1964
  • 11:37 THE ARAB COUNTRIES
  • 11:38 AND THE PALESTINIANS
  • 11:39 MET TOGETHER IN JERUSALEM
  • 11:40 TO FORM A NEW ORGANIZATION,
  • 11:41 THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANIZATION.
  • 11:44 YASSER ARAFAT WAS THE HEAD
  • 11:45 OF THE LARGEST FACTION.
  • 11:47 IN 1965 AND 66
  • 11:49 THE SYRIANS STEPPED UP THEIR ATTACKS
  • 11:50 ON THE JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN THE HULA VALLEY BELOW
  • 11:53 FROM THIS GOLAN HEIGHTS.
  • 11:55 IN APRIL OF 1967
  • 11:57 THEY ACTUALLY DESTROYED
  • 11:58 AN ENTIRE KIBBUTZ,
  • 11:59 KIBBUTZ GADOT.
  • 12:01 THERE WERE AIR BATTLES,
  • 12:02 THERE WERE TANK BATTLES.
  • 12:03 MEANWHILE, DOWN IN EGYPT,
  • 12:04 NASSER WAS VOWING OPENLY
  • 12:06 THAT HE WOULD DESTROY ISRAEL.
  • 12:08 HE ORDERED UN FORCES
  • 12:10 WITHDRAWN FROM THE SINAI PENINSULA IN MAY OF 67
  • 12:13 HE BLOCKADED THE ISRAELI PORT OF ELATH
  • 12:15 WHICH IS AN ACT OF WAR.
  • 12:17 AND HE TOLD THE WORLD,
  • 12:18 "WE'RE GOING TO ATTACK ISRAEL".
  • 12:20 HE MADE ALLIANCES WITH IRAQ,
  • 12:22 WITH SYRIA, WITH JORDAN,
  • 12:23 WITH OTHER ARAB COUNTRIES.
  • 12:24 THE ISRAELIS WERE FACING FORCES
  • 12:26 THREE TIMES AS LARGE AS THEY HAD...
  • 12:28 TANK FORCES,
  • 12:29 THE AIR FORCES...
  • 12:30 ALL SUPPLIED BY THE SOVIET UNION.
  • 12:32 THEY FEARED THEY WOULD BE DESTROYED.
  • 12:34 SO THEY TOOK A DECISION TO TAKE THE FIRST STRIKE.
  • 12:36 IN A CAREFULLY CALIBRATED ATTACK
  • 12:39 THEY STRUCK THE EGYPTIAN AIR FORCE IN ITS BASES...
  • 12:41 15 LOCATIONS...
  • 12:42 WIPED OUT 90 PER CENT OF EGYPTIAN AIR FORCE.
  • 12:45 THEY DID THE SAME THING BEHIND ME HERE IN SYRIA
  • 12:47 LATER THAT AFTERNOON.
  • 12:49 THEIR ENEMIES WERE DEFENSELESS FROM THE AIR EFFECTIVELY.
  • 12:52 IT ONLY TOOK 2 DAYS
  • 12:53 FOR ISRAEL TO CAPTURE THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 12:56 AND BY JUNE 10TH,
  • 12:57 JUST 5 DAYS AFTER THE WAR BEGAN
  • 12:59 THEY HAD CAPTURED THIS ENTIRE GOLAN HEIGHTS,
  • 13:01 THE ENTIRE WEST BANK
  • 13:02 AND THE ENTIRE SINAI PENINSULA
  • 13:04 UP TO THE SUEZ CANAL.
  • 13:06 THE ARAB WORLD WAS SHOCKED
  • 13:08 BY ISRAEL'S LIGHTNING VICTORY
  • 13:10 IN THE SIX DAY WAR.
  • 13:11 THE SOVIETS WERE HUMILIATED
  • 13:12 AND THEY BROKE ALL DIPLOMATIC TIES WITH ISRAEL.
  • 13:15 ISRAEL THOUGH OFFERED TO PULL OUT OF MOST OF THE TERRITORY IT CAPTURED.
  • 13:19 THE ARAB LEADERS MET IN SEPTEMBER IN KHARTOUM
  • 13:21 AND SAID, "NO NEGOTIATIONS..."
  • 13:23 "NO PEACE WITH ISRAEL..."
  • 13:24 "ISRAEL MUST BE DESTROYED."
  • 13:26 RIGHT AFTER THAT
  • 13:27 A WAR BEGAN CALLED
  • 13:28 "THE WAR OF ATTRITION"...
  • 13:29 THE EGYPTIANS STRIKING ISRAELI FORCES ALMOST EVERY DAY
  • 13:32 AND HUNDREDS OF SOLDIERS WERE KILLED
  • 13:33 UNTIL THAT ENDED IN THE SUMMER OF 1970.
  • 13:36 THE NEXT WAR WOULD BE THE YOM KIPPUR WAR.
  • 13:38 THIS TIME THE ARABS DIDN'T ANNOUNCE IT IN ADVANCE.
  • 13:41 THEY MADE SECRET PLANS
  • 13:42 TO STRIKE ISRAEL
  • 13:43 ON THE HOLIEST DAY OF ITS YEAR...
  • 13:44 YOM KIPPUR...
  • 13:45 WHEN MOST JEWS ARE FASTING...
  • 13:46 TELEVISION AND RADIO IS SHUT DOWN.
  • 13:49 AT NOON THE SIRENS WENT OFF
  • 13:50 ON OCTOBER 6, 1973
  • 13:52 SIGNALING THAT ANOTHER WAR
  • 13:54 WAS ABOUT TO BEGIN.
  • 13:55 MEN ALL OVER THE COUNTRY RUSHED TO THEIR POSITIONS
  • 13:57 AND IN 2:00 PM IN THE AFTERNOON
  • 13:59 THE WAR BEGAN.
  • 14:00 ISRAEL THIS TIME WAS ON THE RUN.
  • 14:02 THEY WERE PUSHED OFF OF MOST OF THIS GOLAN HEIGHTS.
  • 14:05 THEY WERE PUSHED BACK IN THE SINAI ALMOST TO THEIR BORDERS.
  • 14:08 IT WAS A TERRIBLE WAR WITH VERY HIGH CASUALTIES.
  • 14:11 BUT BY THE SECOND WEEK OF THE WAR
  • 14:13 ISRAEL WAS TURNING THE TIDE
  • 14:15 WITH HELP FROM THE UNITED STATES.
  • 14:16 THE SOVIETS WERE VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS
  • 14:18 AND ON OCTOBER 25TH
  • 14:20 THEY BEGAN LOADING THEIR OWN FORCES INTO AIRCRAFT
  • 14:22 WITH OBJECT OF COMING HERE...
  • 14:24 THEIR OWN MEN ON THE GROUND
  • 14:26 TO AID SYRIA AND EGYPT.
  • 14:28 THE UNITED STATES CALLED A NUCLEAR ALERT
  • 14:30 IN RESPONSE TO THAT
  • 14:31 AND THE SOVIETS BACKED DOWN
  • 14:33 AND A CEASE FIRE WAS DECLARED.
  • 14:35 BUT ISRAEL LOST OVER 2,300 SOLDIERS IN THAT WAR
  • 14:39 WITH MANY, MANY MORE CASUALTIES.
  • 14:40 AND THE GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL,
  • 14:42 HUMILIATED BY THIS DEFEAT,
  • 14:44 INITIAL DEFEAT AT LEAST,
  • 14:45 WOULD LATER BE TOSSED OUT OF OFFICE
  • 14:48 AND THE LIKUD PARTY WOULD RISE TO POWER...
  • 14:50 THE LABOR PARTY THAT HAD RULED SINCE 1948 WOULD BE FINISHED.
  • 15:09 FOR THE LORD THY GOD BRINGETH THEE INTO A GOOD LAND...
  • 15:14 A LAND OF FIG TREES AND POMEGRANATES...
  • 15:18 A LAND OF OLIVE OIL AND HONEY.
  • 15:20 ARISE...

  • 18:09 WE SEE A LOT OF THAT HERE DON'T WE?
  • 18:11 WE DEFINITELY DO JEFF
  • 18:13 AND YOU KNOW I WAS REVIEWING THE SINAI WAR
  • 18:16 AND THE SIX DAY WAR
  • 18:17 AND THE YOM KIPPUR WAR
  • 18:19 AND I EMPHASIZED
  • 18:20 THAT NASSER, THE EGYPTIAN LEADER
  • 18:23 WHO GOT THE FORCES TOGETHER
  • 18:25 IN 67 AND 73...
  • 18:27 HE WAS QUOTING
  • 18:28 FROM THE KORAN MOSTLY.
  • 18:30 AND THE TRUTH IS
  • 18:31 HE WAS A SOCIALIST.
  • 18:32 HE WASN'T A RELIGIOUS MAN
  • 18:33 BUT HE USED THE FORCE
  • 18:35 OF THAT RELIGION
  • 18:36 TO GET ALL OF HIS PEOPLE,
  • 18:38 FRANKLY, RILED UP...
  • 18:40 THERE CANNOT BE A JEWISH STATE
  • 18:41 BECAUSE ISLAM IS THE
  • 18:42 FINAL REVOLUTION OF TRUTH
  • 18:44 AND THEREFORE
  • 18:45 WE HAVE TO HAVE THIS WAR.
  • 18:46 AND IT BROUGHT TOGETHER
  • 18:48 IN THE CASE OF THE SIX DAY WAR
  • 18:49 SIX DIFFERENT NATIONS.
  • 18:50 AND THE 73 WAR WE HAD
  • 18:52 ALL SORTS OF PARTICIPATION.
  • 18:53 THAT'S MODERNITY IN BIBLICAL ANTIQUITY...
  • 18:55 THE EGYPTIANS SWEPT UP TO MEGIDDO AS WELL
  • 18:58 AND IT'S JUST A NEVER ENDING STORY ISN'T IT?
  • 19:01 NOTHING IS NEW UNDER THE SUN
  • 19:03 IN THAT SENSE.
  • 19:04 AND IT'S REALLY TRUE.
  • 19:05 AND I THINK THE ROOT CAUSE
  • 19:07 IS THE DESIRE OF SATAN TO
  • 19:09 NOT SEE THE BIBLE FULFILLED...
  • 19:12 NOT SEE THE MESSIAH COME...
  • 19:13 NOT SEE HIM COME AGAIN...
  • 19:14 AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS YOU WELL KNOW,
  • 19:16 BEING PART OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 19:18 ARE THE SYMBOL ON EARTH OF THE VERACITY OF THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 19:22 AND I THINK THAT'S REALLY THE ROOT CAUSE OF SO MUCH OF THIS.
  • 19:25 I'M INCLINED TO AGREE.
  • 19:26 IF THERE'S A SPAT...
  • 19:27 IF THERE'S A WAR AND MISUNDERSTANDING
  • 19:29 IF IT HAPPENED ONCE BUT CYCLICAL THROUGH NATURE OVER THOUSANDS OF YEARS
  • 19:33 FROM THE BIBLICAL PAGES
  • 19:34 TO THE PAGES OF MODERN NEWSPAPERS
  • 19:36 ITS GOT TO BE MORE SPIRITUAL THAN MATERIAL.
  • 19:39 AND LIKE YOU SAID
  • 19:40 A ROOT CAUSE IN A KIND OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 19:43 WELL YOU KNOW WE HAVE
  • 19:45 THE UN PARTITION PLAN IN 1948
  • 19:47 OFFERING THE PALESTINIANS
  • 19:48 A STATE.
  • 19:49 AND WHERE ARE WE 60 SOME YEARS LATER?
  • 19:51 WE HAVE A PARTITION PLAN.
  • 19:53 LET'S HAVE A PALESTINIAN STATE HERE
  • 19:54 AND LET'S HAVE AN ISRAELI STATE....
  • 19:56 AND NOTHING'S BEEN RESOLVED IN BETWEEN.
  • 19:58 AND THAT'S JUST 60 YEARS
  • 19:59 BUT REALLY YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT 6,000 YEARS ALMOST
  • 20:01 AND IT HAS BEEN A REPEATING CYCLE ALL ALONG.
  • 20:04 AND ITS RESOLUTION AWAITS A DIPLOMAT
  • 20:07 GREATER THAN WHATEVER POLITICIAN MIGHT APPEAR.
  • 20:09 THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL LAY SIEGE TO THE CLAIM TO MAKE PEACE
  • 20:12 BUT REALLY IT WILL TAKE EMERGENCE OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE" TO SETTLE ALL THIS.
  • 20:15 DON'T YOU THINK?
  • 20:16 I ABSOLUTELY AGREE.
  • 20:17 COVERING THESE WARS AS A JOURNALIST
  • 20:19 AND SEEING THE DIPLOMATS COME AND GO,
  • 20:21 THE DIFFERENT PRESIDENTS
  • 20:22 AND THE DIFFERENT SPECIAL ENVOYS
  • 20:23 FROM EUROPE AND THE VATICAN, ETC.
  • 20:25 AND WE'RE STILL AT THE SAME PLACE.
  • 20:27 COVERING THIS AS A BIBLICAL THEOLOGIAN
  • 20:29 I SAY "COME LORD JESUS"!
  • 20:30 AMEN
  • 20:34 HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED WHEN YOU
  • 20:37 OPEN UP YOUR BIBLES AT THE BACK
  • 20:38 AND LOOK AT A MAP
  • 20:40 MORE TIMES THAN NOT
  • 20:41 IT REFERS TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL
  • 20:42 AS PALESTINE.
  • 20:45 QUESTION...
  • 20:46 WHAT DEVIL EVER SLIPPED THAT IN THERE!
  • 20:49 THE REASON WHY I SAY THAT IS BECAUSE THE BIBLE DOES NOT REFER TO THE LAND AS "PALESTINE".
  • 20:56 CHRISTIAN THEOLOGIANS DO AND THEY'RE PROUD TO DO IT
  • 20:58 BUT THAT'S POLITICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY DRIVEN IT SEEMS TO ME.
  • 21:02 WHEN THE LORD BROUGHT HIS PEOPLE INTO THAT LAND
  • 21:05 THERE WAS A NAME GIVEN...
  • 21:07 THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 21:09 WELL WHERE DID PALESTINE COME FROM?
  • 21:13 WE INTERVIEW A PROFESSOR IN ISRAEL WHO EXPLAINS.
  • 21:20 AFTER THE BAR KOCHBA REVOLT
  • 21:22 IN THE 2ND CENTURY A.D.
  • 21:25 WHEN THE ROMANS WAS TO CHANGE
  • 21:27 THE CHARACTER OF THE LAND
  • 21:29 FROM THE LAND OF THE JEWS
  • 21:31 TO THE LAND WITHOUT JEWS,
  • 21:34 WITHOUT A CONTROLLING BY JEWS,
  • 21:37 THEY STARTED TO CALL THE LAND
  • 21:40 "THE PROVINCE OF PALESTINE".
  • 21:42 AND THE MUSLIMS TOOK THIS ANCIENT NAME
  • 21:48 FROM THE 2ND CENTURY A.D.
  • 21:50 AND USED IT AS THEIR HOME.
  • 21:54 WHEN THE ARABS CAME HERE,
  • 21:58 WHEN THE MUSLIMS CAME HERE
  • 22:00 IN THE 7TH CENTURY A.D.
  • 22:02 WHICH IS VERY LATE IN RELATIVITY TO THE JEWISH HISTORY,
  • 22:06 THE 7TH CENTURY A.D. IS VERY ANTIQUE IN THE AMERICANS POINT OF VIEW
  • 22:12 BUT HERE IN ISRAEL... 700'S...IT'S NOT MUCH.
  • 22:17 THEY USED NAME...
  • 22:20 THEY CALLED THIS "THE LAND OF ISRAEL"...
  • 22:21 THEY CALLED IT A "JUDE PALESTINE".
  • 22:23 THE WAS THE OFFICIAL NAME OF THE ARABS AND THE TURKISH AND THE BRITISH
  • 22:29 UNTIL WHEN THE STATE OF ISRAEL WAS BORN.
  • 22:47 ♪PROMISED BY JEHOVAH THROUGH HIS PROPHETS♪
  • 22:54 ♪HOW THEY WEPT FOR YOU MY ISRAEL...♪
  • 23:00 ♪ISRAEL...♪
  • 23:02 ♪IS...RA...EL♪
  • 23:09 ♪IN THAT DAY THE LORD WILL COME♪
  • 23:11 ♪AND ALL WILL BOW BEFORE THE THRONE OF HE WHO IS THE KING.♪
  • 23:22 ♪ISRAEL THE PROMISED LAND WILL SEE HIS KINGDOM COME.♪
  • 24:12 ♪IN THAT DAY THE LORD WILL COME♪
  • 24:14 ♪AND ALL WILL BOW BEFORE THE THRONE OF HE WHO IS THE KING.♪
  • 24:25 ♪ISRAEL THE PROMISED LAND WILL SEE HIS KINGDOM...♪
  • 24:32 ♪COME!♪
  • 24:54 WELL YOU KNOW THEY SAY THAT MUSIC TAMES THE SAVAGE BEAST.
  • 24:59 AND ZOLA'S PIECE HAS A CALMING EFFECT ON AN OTHERWISE UNHAPPY CAMPER.
  • 25:07 I AM CHAGRINED BY THE WAY TRENDS AND CULTURE WANT TO BE POLITICALLY CORRECT
  • 25:14 AND CALL WHAT IS ISRAEL "PALESTINE".
  • 25:18 AT BEST THE PHILISTINE,
  • 25:19 THE ANCIENT,
  • 25:21 THOSE WHO WERE THE ANCIENT PHILISTINES
  • 25:24 JUST HAD A LITTLE TOEHOLD
  • 25:25 IN THE REGION HERE,
  • 25:27 NEVER MIND ISRAEL PROPER.
  • 25:29 IN FACT THIS IS ISRAEL UNDER THE DAYS...
  • 25:31 UNDER THE ADMINISTRATION RATHER
  • 25:33 OF DAVID AND SOLOMON
  • 25:35 AND NOW MODERN ISRAEL
  • 25:37 IS JUST A SMALL PART OF THAT.
  • 25:39 AND WHAT WAS THE PHILISTINE HOLDINGS...
  • 25:41 AND THE PHILISTINES WERE SEA FARING PEOPLE,
  • 25:43 NOT SAND FARING PEOPLE OF ISLAMIC PERSUASION...
  • 25:46 THEY JUST HAD A LITTLE TOEHOLD THERE.
  • 25:49 SO MUCH DECEIT...
  • 25:51 IT IS SICKENING BY THE WAY...
  • 25:54 I USED TO THINK IT WAS JUST PROBLEMATIC IGNORANCE
  • 25:56 BUT REALLY IT'S DIABOLICAL
  • 25:58 AND THOSE THAT ARE MINISTERS AND PROFESSORS THAT ADVOCATE
  • 26:01 FOR CALLING THIS REAL ESTATE "PALESTINE"
  • 26:04 FOR MY MONEY THEY ALL SHOULD BE SUED FOR MALPRACTICE.
  • 26:07 IT'S NOT BEYOND THE PALE OF REASON FOR BIBLE TEACHERS TO USE BIBLE LANGUAGE.
  • 26:13 JESUS REFERRED TO THE LAND AS "ISRAEL"
  • 26:15 SPEAKING OF WHICH,
  • 26:17 NEXT WEEK WE'RE GOING TO HERE FROM HIM
