Episode: “Day of Atonement”
From the Mount of Olives, Zola tells us about Yom Kippur. Once a year, the priest entered into the presence of God in the Holy of Holies. Here, a sacrifice was made for the corporate sin of the nation. We show you a recreation of the Tabernacle located in Timna Park, on the Red Sea.
Series: “The Holy Days of Our Lord (2012)”
with Myles and Katharine Weiss
On location in Israel, we created this presentation of the holidays our Lord celebrated. Given to Moses on Mt. Sinai, these celebrations comprise one of the most fascinating studies of Biblical types and shadows. Since knowledge of these feasts seems to repose mainly with Jewish people, whether Messianic or other, we wanted to acquaint our large audience with this information. Few churches or seminaries teach what we take up in this series. Below are descriptions of each program.

Caption transcript for The Holy Days of Our Lord (2012): “Day of Atonement” (7/11)

  • 00:03 IT IS WRITTEN IN THE SCRIPTURES THAT WE SHOULD JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM THREE TIMES A YEAR.
  • 00:07 WE ARE GOING UP TO THE CITY OF GOD,
  • 00:10 TO JERUSALEM, TO CELEBRATE.
  • 00:17 THE LORD TOLD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO HONOR SEVEN HOLY CELEBRATIONS EACH YEAR
  • 00:22 INVOLVING THREE JOURNEYS TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:24 EACH FESTIVAL WOULD BE UNIQUELY FULFILLED IN THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 00:44 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 00:46 I'M MYLES,
  • 00:47 THIS IS KATHARINE.
  • 00:48 WE ARE GLAD TO BE WITH YOU TODAY.
  • 00:50 YOU KNOW ZOLA LEVITT, OUR FOUNDER,
  • 00:52 DID A WONDERFUL SERIES BEFORE HE WENT TO HEAVEN ON THE FEASTS OF THE LORD.
  • 00:55 WE CALL IT THE HOLY DAYS OF OUR LORD.
  • 00:58 THIS WEEK WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 01:01 LAST WEEK WE SPOKE ABOUT THE DAY OF TRUMPETS;
  • 01:03 ROSH HASHANAH; THE HEAD OF THE YEAR.
  • 01:06 THIS WEEK, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT,
  • 01:07 THE MOST SERIOUS HOLIDAY IN THE SEASON.
  • 01:10 IT'S A VERY SOBER TIME FOR ISRAEL AND FOR ALL JEWS EVERYWHERE, MYLES.
  • 01:14 IT'S A TIME FOR US TO TAKE AN INVENTORY
  • 01:17 TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR LIVES HAVE AN ACCOUNT AND THAT OUR SINS ARE RECKONED FOR.
  • 01:22 AND OF COURSE WE CAN'T GET ALL THIS SIN OUT, AS THE JEWS KNOW.
  • 01:25 WE HAVE TO HAVE AN ATONEMENT DON'T WE?
  • 01:27 YES WE DO.
  • 01:28 AND SO THANK THE LORD THAT HE CAME AND BECAME OUR ATONEMENT.
  • 01:31 AS WE GO TO SEE ZOLA ON LOCATION
  • 01:34 LET'S REMEMBER IT'S LIKELY THAT GOD HIMSELF
  • 01:37 WILL COME AT THE TIME OF THE DAY OF ATONEMENT TO JUDGE THE EARTH,
  • 01:41 BUT HE'S MADE A PROVISION FOR ALL OF US.
  • 01:43 SO NOW, TO ZOLA ON LOCATION.
  • 01:50 THE PRIEST SHALL TAKE TWO GOATS AND PRESENT THEM BEFORE THE LORD.
  • 01:55 ONE GOAT IS TO BE SACRIFICED AS A SIN OFFERING,
  • 01:59 THE OTHER GOAT SHALL BE PRESENTED ALIVE TO THE LORD.
  • 02:03 IT SHALL BE USED FOR MAKING ATONEMENT BY SENDING IT INTO THE DESERT AS A SCAPEGOAT.
  • 02:13 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 02:14 WELL THIS IS THE FAMOUS VIEW OF JERUSALEM.
  • 02:16 WE'RE VERY NEAR THE SUMMIT OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 02:19 THE ROAD THE LORD RODE THE DONKEY ON IS JUST TEN YARDS TO MY LEFT
  • 02:23 AND IN THE 2ND COMING HE WILL TRAVEL PRESUMABLY THE SAME ROAD.
  • 02:27 THIS IS THE ANCIENT ROAD DOWN THE MOUNT.
  • 02:29 IT'S BEEN REDONE AND WALLS PUT UP AND SO ON,
  • 02:32 BUT BASICALLY THAT'S THE WAY
  • 02:33 FROM THE SUMMIT OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES TO THE EASTERN GATE BEHIND ME.
  • 02:37 YOU CAN SEE THE GOLD DOME OF THE ROCK, THE MUSLIM SHRINE,
  • 02:39 AND THE EAST GATE IN THE WALL WHERE WE WILL ENTER IN THE 2ND COMING OF THE LORD.
  • 02:45 WE'RE GOING TO TALK HERE ABOUT THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 02:48 THIS IS ONE OF THE HARDEST LAWS IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 02:51 IT WAS THE DAY THE HIGH PRIEST ENTERED THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 02:55 TO MAKE AN ATONEMENT FOR HIMSELF AND FOR THE SINS OF ALL NATIONAL ISRAEL.
  • 03:00 WE FIND IT IN LEVITICUS 23:27...
  • 03:23 SO THERE'RE BASICALLY TWO RULES HERE.
  • 03:25 YOU HAVE TO AFFLICT YOUR SOULS, OR CONFESS,
  • 03:28 AND YOU MAY NOT WORK THAT DAY.
  • 03:32 THE BASEBALL PLAYER HANK GREENBERG AND SANDY KOUFAX, WHO WERE JEWISH,
  • 03:37 WOULD NOT PLAY BASEBALL
  • 03:39 EVEN THOUGH IT WAS WORLD SERIES IN BOTH CASES
  • 03:41 ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 03:43 JEWISH ACTORS DID NOT REPORT TO SETS AND STUDIOS AND SO ON.
  • 03:46 THIS ONE IS SERIOUS.
  • 03:47 THEY KEEP IT.
  • 03:49 IF WE LOOK INTO WHAT IS WRITTEN IN SCRIPTURE, WE FIND THE LAW
  • 03:52 AND THEN UNDERNEATH THE VERY PUNISHMENT.
  • 03:55 JUST THE WAY WE MAKE A SIGN,
  • 03:57 NO TRESPASSING, $300 FINE;
  • 03:58 FAILURE TO PAY TOLL, $200 FINE,
  • 04:01 WHATEVER IT IS.
  • 04:02 HERE IT SAYS,
  • 04:11 IF YOU DON'T MAKE YOUR CONFESSIONS, YOU'RE EXCOMMUNICATED.
  • 04:14 THAT'S THE STRONGEST SPIRITUAL PUNISHMENT.
  • 04:17 TECHNICALLY THE PRIEST OF THE TEMPLE HAD THE RIGHT TO SAY
  • 04:20 WHAT NO PASTOR OF A CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND NO RABBI OF A SYNAGOGUE COULD SAY,
  • 04:24 WHICH IS "YOU'RE NO LONGER CHOSEN."
  • 04:26 "YOU'RE NO LONGER JEWISH."
  • 04:28 "YOU DON'T NEED TO COME BACK TO THE TEMPLE OR MAKE ANY MORE SACRIFICES."
  • 04:31 "THEY WON'T BE EFFICACIOUS ANYHOW.YOU'RE LIKE A PAGAN."
  • 04:35 "YOU'RE LIKE A GENTILE."
  • 04:37 THROWN OUT OF JUDAISM, A TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE PUNISHMENT.
  • 04:40 THEN IT GOES ON TO THE PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THAT DAY.
  • 04:51 WOW!SAME THING - DESTROYED FROM AMONG THE PEOPLE,
  • 04:54 THROWN OUT, EXCOMMUNICATED FOR WORKING THAT DAY.
  • 04:57 SO THEY REALLY DO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.
  • 04:59 THIS 10TH DAY OF THE 7TH MONTH IS A TOUGH LAW.
  • 05:02 AND IN VERSE 32 IT TELLS YOU HOW LONG YOU SHOULD CONFESS.
  • 05:17 TWENTY-FOUR HOURS, FROM THE 9TH AT SUNDOWN UNTIL THE 10TH AT SUNDOWN
  • 05:21 YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO CONFESS YOUR SINS.
  • 05:24 IT'S A HARD JOB.
  • 05:26 I WAS AT THE WESTERN WALL, THE WAILING WALL SO CALLED, ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT ONCE.
  • 05:30 I SAW THE RABBIS AND THE CONGREGATION AND SO ON
  • 05:33 COMING TO MAKE ATONEMENT AT 5 O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING.
  • 05:36 I WAS ON JET LAG AND HAPPENED TO BE UP ANYWAY, SO I WALKED DOWN THERE.
  • 05:40 SOME HAD BEDROLLS.
  • 05:42 IT DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING HERE ABOUT TAKING BREAKS.
  • 05:45 IT SAYS TO CONFESS FOR 24 HOURS.
  • 05:47 SO IT'S SERIOUS...IT'S HEAVY.
  • 05:50 NOW THE BLOOD OF ATONEMENT IS IN JUDAISM A BASIC, BASIC CONCEPT.
  • 05:56 IN LEVITICUS...THE LORD SAID...
  • 05:59 "I'VE GIVEN YOU THE BLOOD FOR REMISSION OF SINS."
  • 06:02 THAT HAS BEEN TRUE.
  • 06:04 REPENTANCE AND THE BLOOD WAS EFFICACIOUS FOR ATONEMENT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW.
  • 06:10 WHEN WE COME TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WHO SHED THE BLOOD
  • 06:13 WE REPENT, WE ATONE, AND WE COME TO HIM.
  • 06:16 FROM THERE ON WE HAVE NO FURTHER ATONEMENT TO MAKE,
  • 06:19 BUT IT'S BECAUSE HE SHED THE BLOOD FOR US.
  • 06:21 YOU KNOW THAT WORD "BLOOD" THE SAME WORD IS USED
  • 06:25 WHEN GOD DIRECTS NOAH TO PUT PITCH, TAR ON HIS ARK,
  • 06:31 INSIDE AND OUT TO PROTECT IT FROM THE WATER SO IT WON'T COME ON BOARD.
  • 06:35 THE WATER IS JUDGMENT AND THE PITCH IS LIKE THE BLOOD THAT PROTECTS US FROM JUDGMENT.
  • 06:42 NOW ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT THERE WERE TWO GOATS.
  • 06:45 THE PRIEST TOOK ONE GOAT IN WITH HIM AND SACRIFICED ITS BLOOD ON THE ALTAR
  • 06:49 AND THE OTHER WAS CALLED THE SCAPEGOAT.
  • 06:51 THEY LET IT GO.
  • 06:52 IT RAN OUT INTO THE WILDERNESS.
  • 06:54 IT WOULD DIE OUT THERE AT SOME POINT.
  • 06:56 A SCARLET RIBBON HUNG DOWN IN THE TEMPLE IN PLAIN SIGHT
  • 07:01 AND AT THE POINT WHEN THAT GOAT WOULD DIE OUT THERE IN THE WILDERNESS, NOBODY WATCHING IT,
  • 07:05 BUT AT THE POINT WHEN IT DIED THAT SCARLET RIBBON WOULD TURN WHITE.
  • 07:09 THOUGH YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET, THEY'LL BE WASHED WHITE AS SNOW.
  • 07:13 THAT'S HOW IT WORKED.
  • 07:15 THE ONE GOAT FOR THE PRIEST'S SINS
  • 07:17 AND THE OTHER FOR THE SINS OF NATIONAL ISRAEL.
  • 07:19 YOU KNOW JOSEPHUS REPORTS THAT AFTER THE DEATH OF CHRIST, FROM ABOUT 30 AD TO 70 AD,
  • 07:26 THAT SCARLET RIBBON NEVER DID TURN WHITE IN THAT TIME.
  • 07:30 THAT WAS HIS REPORT.
  • 07:32 THE TRADITION HAS TO DO WITH FASTING.
  • 07:35 THEY ADDED FASTING ONTO THE FESTIVAL.
  • 07:38 IT'S TEN AWESOME DAYS BETWEEN ROSH HASHANAH AND YOM KIPPUR,
  • 07:44 THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS AND THE DAY OF ATONEMENT;
  • 07:47 ROSH HASHANAH ON THE 1ST DAY OF THE 7TH MONTH
  • 07:50 AND ATONEMENT ON THE 10TH.
  • 07:52 IN THOSE 10 AWESOME DAYS WE ARE TO BE CONSCIENCE OF OUR SHORT COMINGS,
  • 07:56 REMEMBER OUR SINS OF THE WHOLE YEAR,
  • 07:59 AND BE READY TO REPENT THERE BEFORE GOD.
  • 08:04 AT THE TIME OF JESUS THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WAS NOT IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 08:08 THEY SAY THAT JEREMIAH HID IT AWAY
  • 08:10 BEFORE NEBUCHADNEZZAR'S SIEGE OR DURING THE SIEGE
  • 08:13 WHEN IT WAS CLEAR THAT HE WAS GOING TO RAID THE TEMPLE AND TAKE AWAY THE ARTIFACTS.
  • 08:17 I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S EXACTLY TRUE, BUT ANYWAY IT WAS NOT THERE IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 08:21 BUT THE LITTLE STONE ON WHICH IT SAT,
  • 08:23 A KIND OF A FOUNDATION STONE WAS THERE IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 08:28 THAT STONE ITSELF BECAME IN ITS OWN WAY HOLY.
  • 08:32 ISAIAH 28:16 SAYS THIS...
  • 08:49 IN OTHER WORDS THE STONE ITSELF WAS ACCEPTED BEFORE GOD AS A PLACE OF ATONEMENT.
  • 08:55 HOW IRONIC IT IS THAT THE ARABS, THE MUSLIMS...
  • 08:59 ENEMIES OF ISRAEL NO QUESTION...
  • 09:01 HAVE BUILT A SHRINE,
  • 09:03 THE GOLDEN DOME BEHIND ME,
  • 09:05 AND PUT IT ON THE SITE OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE TO KEEP THE JEWISH TEMPLE FROM EVER BEING REBUILT.
  • 09:10 I BELIEVE THAT'S THE IDEA.
  • 09:12 AND THEY END UP CALLING IT THE DOME OF THE ROCK
  • 09:15 AND INSIDE IS A BIG ROCK
  • 09:17 FOR ALL I KNOW THE SAME FOUNDATION STONE.
  • 09:19 BUT ANYWAY IT'S AROUND A STONE AS IF GOD WOULD NOT GIVE UP THE IDEA OF THAT STONE ON THAT SITE
  • 09:26 NO MATTER WHO BUILT THE TEMPLE.
  • 09:28 AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DID.
  • 09:29 ROMANS BUILT A TEMPLE.
  • 09:30 CRUSADERS STUCK A CROSS ON THE TEMPLE.
  • 09:32 AS I OFTEN POINT OUT
  • 09:35 THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THERE WAS A CHRISTIAN CROSS ON A MUSLIM DOME
  • 09:37 ON ROMAN PILLARS ON JEWISH LAND...
  • 09:40 ALL ON THAT SITE WHERE YOU SEE THE DOME.
  • 09:42 BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 09:44 THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN A ROCK THERE, THAT FOUNDATION STONE.
  • 09:47 FINALLY, PAUL POINTS OUT IN ROMANS 9:33...
  • 10:01 AS IN OUR TIME EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE HERE ARE NOT BASICALLY BELIEVING IN THE LORD,
  • 10:06 HE IS THERE AND THEY STUMBLE OVER HIM ALL THE TIME.
  • 10:27 ♪SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM♪
  • 10:31 ♪SHA'ALU SHA'LU SHALOM♪
  • 10:35 ♪IN THE HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM,♪
  • 10:42 ♪WE WILL PRAY FOR PEACE♪
  • 10:45 ♪SHA'LU SHALOM!♪
  • 10:55 THAT'S ISRAEL,
  • 10:56 AND WE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU
  • 10:58 TO COME WITH US.
  • 10:59 IT'S A TRIP OF A LIFETIME;
  • 11:01 MEMORIES THAT YOU'LL HOLD DEAR
  • 11:03 YOUR WHOLE LIFE.
  • 11:04 JUST CALL 1-800-WONDERS
  • 11:06 AND YOU CAN MAKE A RESERVATION WITH TRACIE.
  • 11:08 AND NOW WE'RE GOING BACK TO ZOLA
  • 11:10 TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THE HOLY DAYS OF OUR LORD.
  • 11:15 WELL WE'RE HERE AT THE FAMOUS VIEW OF JERUSALEM FROM THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 11:18 WE'RE STANDING NEAR THE SUMMIT OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 11:21 YOU CAN SEE THE DOME OF THE ROCK BEHIND ME, THE GOLDEN DOME,
  • 11:24 AND THE EAST GATE IN THE EASTERN WALL OF THE TEMPLE WHERE WE'LL ENTER IN THE 2ND COMING.
  • 11:28 IT'S CLOSED NOW, BUT IT'LL OPEN FOR THE KING WHEN HE COMES.
  • 11:32 YOU KNOW THE WESTERNWALL ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT TEMPLE IS WHERE THE JEWS PRAY NOW.
  • 11:37 THAT RETAINING WALL IS FROM THE ORIGINAL TEMPLES OF SOLOMON AND HEROD.
  • 11:41 NOT ONLY DO THEY PRAY, BUT YOU CAN FAX THE WALL.
  • 11:46 YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS. [CHUCKLING]
  • 11:48 YOU CAN ACTUALLY EMAIL YOUR PRAYERS TO THE WALL.
  • 11:52 THEY WILL PUT A PIECE OF PAPER WITH YOUR PRAYERS ON THERE.
  • 11:54 FOR YOM KIPPUR YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH...
  • 11:58 KIPPUR MEANS A COVERING OF YOUR SINS...
  • 12:00 YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH WHAT THEY CALL VIRTUAL KAPPAROT, VIRTUAL COVERINGS, BY COMPUTER.
  • 12:06 IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THOSE ADDRESSES
  • 12:09 WRITE TO US AND WE'LL GIVE THEM TO YOU.
  • 12:11 WE'VE PRINTED THEM IN OUR LEVITT LETTER.
  • 12:12 IF YOU GET THE LEVITT LETTER WE'VE RUN THOSE ADDRESSES FROM TIME TO TIME
  • 12:15 SO YOU CAN FAX TO GOD OR EMAIL.
  • 12:18 I SAY THAT BECAUSE THE THOUGHT IS BEHIND THE WESTERN WALL IS THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 12:23 AND GOD MAY STILL BE IN HIS APARTMENT ON EARTH
  • 12:25 AND THEREFORE THE CRACKS IN THAT WALL ARE LIKE HIS MAILBOX.
  • 12:29 NOW THE PEOPLE TREAT YOM KIPPUR, THE DAY OF ATONEMENT WITH SPECIAL THINGS.
  • 12:35 THEY DON'T CARRY MONEY.
  • 12:37 THEY WEAR TENNIS SHOES WITHOUT LEATHER SINCE LEATHER IS A SYMBOL OF WAR.
  • 12:42 THEY ARE REPENTANT IN THIS DAY, PEACEFUL.
  • 12:44 THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE A SYMBOL OF WAR EVEN AROUND THEM.
  • 12:47 THEY READ IN THE SYNAGOGUE THE STORY OF JONAH
  • 12:50 BECAUSE IT'S AN EXAMPLE THAT YOU SIMPLY CANNOT ESCAPE GOD'S WILL.
  • 12:54 HE KNOWS YOUR EVERY SIN.
  • 12:55 HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S TOLD YOU TO DO AND WHETHER YOU'VE DONE IT.
  • 12:58 SO THEY READ THE STORY OF JONAH WHO TRIED TO ESCAPE GOD'S WILL
  • 13:04 AND OF COURSE HE COULD NOT DO IT.
  • 13:06 THE IDEA OF JONAH IS BROUGHT UP BY JESUS AS WELL WHERE HE SAYS,
  • 13:12 "THIS GENERATION SHALL RECEIVE NO SIGN EXCEPT THAT OF THE PROPHET JONAH,"
  • 13:16 "THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE FISH..."
  • 13:19 AS THE LORD WOULD BE THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE EARTH
  • 13:24 AND THEN WE HAVE ALL THESE PEOPLE PUTTING PASSOVER ON WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY...,
  • 13:29 WHEN IN REALITY IT WAS FRIDAY.
  • 13:31 IT'S STILL CALLED GOOD FRIDAY.
  • 13:33 THE GOOD BECAUSE HE MADE THE SACRIFICE FOR US THAT DAY.
  • 13:36 HIS BLOOD WAS SHED AND THAT WAS HIS DAY OF ATONEMENT YOU MIGHT SAY IN OUR PLACE.
  • 13:41 YOU MAY ARGUE ABOUT THE THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS.
  • 13:45 WE HAVE PUBLISHED THIS AND WE'VE SAID IT ON TELEVISION,
  • 13:47 BUT IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW WE COUNT THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS FROM FRIDAY,
  • 13:50 WRITE TO US AND WE'LL SEND THAT ANSWER.
  • 13:52 I WON'T TAKE THE TV TIME RIGHT NOW,
  • 13:54 BUT I WILL SAY THAT WE HOLD TO A FRIDAY CRUCIFIXION AND A SUNDAY RESURRECTION,
  • 13:58 AND WE HAVE THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS BETWEEN THOSE TWO.
  • 14:01 PSALM 139 SPEAKS TO THE SUBJECT BEAUTIFULLY.
  • 14:06 IN VERSE 7...
  • 14:12 IT'S LIKE THE STORY OF JONAH TRYING TO ESCAPE GOD'S WILL.
  • 14:15 THAT IS TRYING NOT TO CONFESS,
  • 14:16 TRYING NOT TO OWN UP FOR THINGS WE'VE DONE.
  • 14:19 THE THEME HERE IS, "WITHER SHALL I GO FROM THY SPIRIT?"
  • 14:23 IT SAYS,...
  • 14:52 GOD IS EVERYWHERE.
  • 14:54 HE'S EVEN IN HELL.
  • 14:56 YOU KNOW CHRIST WENT DOWN TO HELL AFTER THE CRUCIFIXION IT SAYS IN THE EPISTLES
  • 15:00 AND MADE THE PAROUSIA, THE PROCLAMATION TO THE SOULS IN HELL
  • 15:05 THAT THE CROSS WAS A VICTORY
  • 15:08 LEST THEY BE TOLD BY SATAN, A LIAR, THAT HE HAD DEFEATED CHRIST, THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT...
  • 15:14 WELL AS HE SAID IN THE GOSPELS,
  • 15:16 "NO MAN TAKES MY LIFE FROM ME."
  • 15:18 "I LAY IT DOWN AND I TAKE IT UP AGAIN."
  • 15:20 "FOR THIS WAS I BORN", HE SAID.
  • 15:23 WELL THE JEWS WILL HAVE A DAY OF ATONEMENT WHEN HE RETURNS.
  • 15:27 THE PROPHECY IS CLEAR.
  • 15:29 ZECHARIAH 12:10 SAYS,...
  • 15:31 "...THEY SHALL LOOK UPON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED,"
  • 15:33 "AND THEY SHALL MOURN FOR HIM, AS ONE MOURN FOR HIS ONLY SON "
  • 15:36 "AND A FOUNT OF CLEANSING WILL BE OPEN UNTO THE HOUSE OF DAVID."
  • 15:39 I ALMOST CHOKE UP WITH I SAY THAT HERE
  • 15:41 BECAUSE HERE IS WHERE HE'S COMING.
  • 15:43 WE'RE AT THE SUMMIT OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 15:45 IF HE CAME NOW I WOULD BE LOOKING STRAIGHT AT HIM STRAIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
  • 15:48 HE'S COMING OUT OF HEAVEN TO THIS PLACE
  • 15:50 AND EVERYBODY ON THE GROUND WILL LOOK UP AND SEE HIM
  • 15:53 AND WHEN THEY LOOK UPON HIM WHOM THEY'VE PIERCED AND MOURN FOR HIM...
  • 15:58 WHEN THEY DO A REAL ATONEMENT OF THEIR OWN
  • 16:00 BECAUSE THEY SEE WHO HE IS AND THEY REALIZE WHAT HAPPENED,
  • 16:04 THEN THEY WILL BE SAVED.
  • 16:07 AS PAUL SAYS IN ROMANS...
  • 16:09 "ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED WHEN THE DELIVER SHALL COME OUT OF ZION."
  • 16:14 BUT YOU MAY SAY, WELL, THEN I DON'T NEED TO WITNESS TO MY JEWISH NEIGHBOR NOW.
  • 16:17 OH, YOU DO, BECAUSE HE HAS TO SURVIVE.
  • 16:20 IF YOU DON'T WITNESS TO HIM HE'LL HAVE TO SURVIVE THE TRIBULATION PERIOD,
  • 16:23 THE BLASPHEMY OF THE ANTI-CHRIST, ARMAGEDDON,
  • 16:26 AND HE HAS TO BE HERE WHEN THE LORD COMES TO LOOK AT SEE HIM.
  • 16:30 MUCH BETTER IS TO COME TO CHRIST NOW
  • 16:32 AND GO ON TO THE WEDDING IN HEAVEN
  • 16:34 TO THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF REWARDS,
  • 16:37 TO THE WONDERFUL KINGDOM.
  • 16:39 MY GOODNESS, WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
  • 16:41 SO, BY ALL MEANS WITNESS.
  • 16:43 I ALWAYS SAY IF YOU COULD ONLY SAY ONE THING TO ANY WITNESSEE, A JEW OR A GENTILE,
  • 16:48 SAY, "I'LL BE LEAVING."
  • 16:49 THEN WHEN YOU'RE GONE IN THE RAPTURE NOBODY WILL FOOL HIM WITH ANY DELUSION.
  • 16:54 YOU WILL HAVE BEEN THERE FIRST WITH THE TRUTH.
  • 16:57 ROMANS 3:23 SAYS,...
  • 17:01 AND IT MEANS ALL.
  • 17:03 SO WE ALL NEED TO REPENT.
  • 17:05 WELL THE LAST WORD THAT JESUS GAVE TO THE CHURCHES WHEN HE WAS HERE ON EARTH
  • 17:09 WAS NOT REALLY "BE MY REPRESENTATIVES IN JERUSALEM, JUDEA, SAMARIA, AND THE REMOTE PARTS OF THE EARTH."
  • 17:15 THAT'S THE LAST THING HE SAID AFTER THE RESURRECTION,
  • 17:18 BUT HE RETURNED IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION AS YOU RECALL AND HE VISITED WITH JOHN.
  • 17:24 AND THAT TIME HE REVIEWED THE 7 CHURCHES IN ASIA.
  • 17:29 FIVE OUT OF THOSE 7 CHURCHES NEEDED TO REPENT.
  • 17:33 HE SAID AGAIN AND AGAIN, "REPENT OF THY WAYS..."
  • 17:35 ONLY THE CHURCH AT SMYRNA, WHICH WAS BEING PERSECUTED,
  • 17:39 AND THE CHURCH AT PHILADELPHIA OF BROTHERLY LOVE,
  • 17:42 THE CHURCH OF THE OPEN DOOR THAT OPENED BOTH WAYS,
  • 17:45 NEITHER OF THOSE DID HE SAY TO REPENT.
  • 17:48 BUT THE OTHERS HE SAID, "REPENT OR I'LL REMOVE YOUR CANDLESTICK",
  • 17:51 WHICH IS TO SAY I'LL TAKE THAT OIL LAMP OUT OF THERE.
  • 17:54 IT WON'T BE LIKE THE TABERNACLE ANYMORE WITH THE MENORAH,
  • 17:58 BUT IT WILL BE AN EMPTY PLACE WITH GOD NOT IN IT.
  • 18:01 SO THEY ARE WARNED TO REPENT.
  • 18:03 WE ARE WARNED TO REPENT AND THE JEWS HAVE ALWAYS DONE THAT ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 18:18 THE DAY OF ATONEMENT OF COURSE WAS THE DAY OF THE HIGH PRIEST.
  • 18:22 HE WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSONALITY IN ISRAEL WITHOUT DOUBT
  • 18:26 FOR ALL HE WAS GOING DO WITH THE PEOPLE AND THE DAY THAT HE WAS GOING TO GO INTO GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 18:33 WHEN HE WENT THERE HE WORE A COSTUME.
  • 18:35 I'VE GOT SOME PIECES OF IT HERE.
  • 18:37 THIS HEADDRESS...
  • 18:41 I'M GOING TO TAKE MY GLASSES OFF BECAUSE I'M SURE THE HIGH PRIEST DIDN'T HAVE GLASSES.
  • 18:46 IT SAYS "HOLY" ON THE FRONT OF IT,
  • 18:49 OR "HOLY TO THE LORD".
  • 18:51 HE HAD A BREASTPLATE WITH STONES, JEWELS REPRESENTING THE 12 TRIBES WHICH HE WORE HERE,
  • 18:57 AND EPAULETTES, WHICH HE WORE ON HIS SHOULDERS.
  • 19:01 HE WORE A LONG ROBE AND SO FORTH.
  • 19:04 IN THIS AMAZING COSTUME, AND IMAGINE IN ANCIENT TIMES HOW AMAZING THAT COSTUME WAS
  • 19:10 ESPECIALLY OUT IN THE SINAI WHERE THERE WERE JUST MARAUDING TRIBES, BEDOUINS, WHO KNOWS...
  • 19:15 WHEN THE PRIEST WAS IN FULL DRESS IT WAS VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE NO QUESTION.
  • 19:20 THERE IS A TABERNACLE BUILT IN ISRAEL, FULL-SIZE.
  • 19:24 WE HAVE ONE IN AMERICA AT EUREKA SPRINGS, LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA I BELIEVE,
  • 19:29 AND OTHERS I'VE HEARD OF.
  • 19:30 BUT IN ISRAEL AT TIMNA, SOUTH NEAR EILAT,
  • 19:33 WE GO THERE ON OUR TOURS,
  • 19:35 THERE'S A FULL-SIZE TABERNACLE.
  • 19:36 OUR PRODUCER, KEN BERG, TALKED TO THE MAN IN CHARGE.
  • 19:40 LEVCO, THANKS FOR BEING WITH US TODAY.
  • 19:42 WOULD YOU TELL US PLEASE WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW?
  • 19:44 WE ARE HERE AT PARK TIMNA.
  • 19:47 IT'S A VERY BIG PARK.
  • 19:48 YOU MAY SAY THE BIGGEST IN ISRAEL.
  • 19:51 IT'S 64 SQ. KILOMETERS.
  • 19:53 WE HAVE SO MANY THINGS HERE.
  • 19:55 WE HAVE ECOLOGICAL THINGS - THE MOUNTAINS, FIGURES OF ROCKS.
  • 20:00 WE HAVE HERE ARCHAEOLOGY,
  • 20:02 A LOT OF ARCHAEOLOGY FROM THE CHALCOLITHIC PERIOD.
  • 20:05 AND WE HAVE HERE ANIMALS LIKE IBEX AND GOATS.
  • 20:10 AND WE HAVE HERE 10,000 MINES OF COPPER THAT BELONGS TO THE EGYPTIAN PERIOD.
  • 20:15 IT MEANS THERE IS A LOT OF COPPER CARRIED BACK FROM HERE TO EGYPT.
  • 20:21 AT THE SAME TIME THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL STARTED THE EXODUS.
  • 20:25 SO WE THINK THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL BOUGHT THE COPPER FROM THE EGYPTIANS
  • 20:30 AND USED IT IN THE TABERNACLE.
  • 20:32 SO AT EVERY CORNER YOU ARE TURNING AROUND
  • 20:35 AND IT IS SOMETHING VERY, VERY SPECIAL AND VERY NICE.
  • 20:38 I ENJOY HERE EVERY SECOND, EVERY MOMENT I ENJOY HERE.
  • 20:43 (Zola speaking) SPOKESMAN HERBBY GEER EXPLAINS HOW HE BECAME INVOLVED WITH THE TABERNACLE IN TIMNA PARK.
  • 20:49 I WOUND UP BEING ABLE TO COME WITH A NEW PROGRAM
  • 20:51 WITH THE BAPTISTS WHO WERE LOOKING AT DOING SOMETHING NEW IN ISRAEL FOR THEIR TOURS.
  • 20:55 THEY WERE COMING ESPECIALLY IN THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR 2000.
  • 20:57 IT WAS THE BEGINNING YEAR FOR US.
  • 20:59 AS WE CAME WE STARTED LOOKING AT DIFFERENT PROGRAMS WE COULD DO
  • 21:03 AND FOUND OUT IN EILAT THERE WERE REALLY NO PROGRAMS THAT HELPED UNDERSTAND THE EXODUS.
  • 21:07 IT'S SUCH A CENTRAL PART OF WHO WE ARE AND THE BACKGROUND OF BELIEVERS.
  • 21:11 JESUS WAS JEWISH.
  • 21:13 THREE OF THE HOLIDAYS HE WAS COMMANDED TO BE IN JERUSALEM ON.
  • 21:17 ALL THREE OF THOSE HOLIDAYS THAT HE HAD TO BE THERE ON
  • 21:19 DEALT WITH THE EXODUS IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER.
  • 21:23 SUKKOT, YOU'D HAVE HAD PASSOVER,
  • 21:26 AND YOU'D HAVE HAD PENTECOST.
  • 21:28 SO YOU HAVE THOSE FEASTS THAT THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN CELEBRATING THERE IN JERUSALEM.
  • 21:32 THEY LOOK BACK, OF COURSE, SUKKOT LOOKS BACK AT THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.
  • 21:37 IT LOOKS BACK AT HOW THEY LIVED IN TABERNACLES WHEN THEY WERE IN THE WILDERNESS.
  • 21:41 PASSOVER, HOW THEY CAME OUT FROM EGYPT WITH THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB APPLIED TO THE DOORPOSTS.
  • 21:46 THEN MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT THE PENTECOST LOOKS BACK
  • 21:53 AT WHEN MOSES RECEIVED THE 10 COMMANDMENTS ON MOUNT SINAI.
  • 21:56 SO THEY ALL LOOK BACK AT ONE FORM OR ANOTHER AT THESE THINGS.
  • 21:59 SO WE WERE LOOKING AT WHAT WE WOULD DO AND THERE WERE NO PROGRAMS HERE.
  • 22:03 SO WE STARTED APPROACHING THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM AND JUST TALKING ABOUT SOME IDEAS.
  • 22:07 THEY PUT US IN TOUCH WITH TIMNA PARK.
  • 22:10 WE HAD DECIDED THAT MAYBE IF WE COULD BRING A MODEL OF THE TABERNACLE
  • 22:14 TO HELP UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EXODUS,
  • 22:16 TO HELP UNDERSTAND THE CONNECTION OF GOD IN THE MIDST OF THE CAMP OF ISRAEL,
  • 22:20 AND THEN HOW THAT FIT IN WITH THE FEASTS OF ISRAEL
  • 22:23 THAT WOULD HELP A LOT FOR OUR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND JUST THE JEWISH BACKGROUND OF JESUS
  • 22:29 AND THE JEWISH BACKGROUND OF THE FAITH, BEGINNING FROM THE VERY OUTSET OF THE EXODUS FROM EGYPT.
  • 22:35 WHAT PLACE DID THE PRIESTS PLAY IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT?
  • 22:38 IN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, IT'S REALLY INTERESTING,
  • 22:41 BECAUSE YOU HAD THE PRIESTHOOD THAT WOULD HAVE TAKEN UP...
  • 22:44 THERE WERE VERY SPECIAL OFFERINGS THAT WERE TAKEN UP ON THERE.
  • 22:46 OF COURSE WE SEE JESUS IN MANY PLACES WITHIN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 22:50 THE PRIEST WOULD HAVE...THEY WOULD HAVE HAD A SIN OFFERING.
  • 22:54 THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR AARON AND HIS SONS,
  • 22:56 OR FOR THE HIGH PRIEST AND ALL THE PRIESTHOOD LATER ON.
  • 23:00 THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN ONE BULL.
  • 23:01 THEY WOULD HAVE SLAUGHTERED THAT BULL AND OFFERED IT UP
  • 23:04 AS A WHOLE BURNT OFFERING BEFORE THE LORD.
  • 23:06 THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE BLOOD OF THAT BULL
  • 23:08 AND POURED OUT SOME OF IT ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE ALTAR.
  • 23:11 THEY WOULD HAVE ANOINTED THE HORNS OF THE ALTAR.
  • 23:13 THEN THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN THAT BLOOD
  • 23:15 AND THEY WOULD HAVE ANOINTED THE HORNS OF THE GOLDEN ALTAR OF INCENSE IN THE HOLY PLACE
  • 23:19 AND ONLY THE BLOOD OF THOSE SACRIFICES ENTERED ALL THE WAY INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 23:23 THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN THAT ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND SPRINKLED IT ON THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
  • 23:27 TO COVER FOR THE SINS OF AARON AND HIS SONS.
  • 23:31 SECOND, THEY WOULD HAVE HAD TWO GOATS.
  • 23:33 ONE GOAT WAS CALLED THE SCAPEGOAT.
  • 23:35 IN HEBREW IT'S LA'AAZAZEL.
  • 23:37 IT MEANS TO AN UNINHABITED AND DESOLATE PLACE, BUT IN MODERN HEBREW IT ACTUALLY MEANS HELL.
  • 23:42 WELL, THEY WOULD HAVE LAID THEIR HANDS ON THE HEAD OF THAT GOAT
  • 23:46 SIGNIFYING IT'S TAKING THE SINS OF ALL THE NATION OF ISRAEL
  • 23:49 AND THEY WOULD HAVE SENT IT OUT TO THE DESOLATE AND UNINHABITABLE PLACE.
  • 23:53 MANY TIMES WE SEE JESUS AS THE SLAUGHTER AND THE SACRIFICE,
  • 23:56 BUT ALSO AS THE SCAPEGOAT BECAUSE HE WAS 40 DAYS IN THE WILDERNESS.
  • 23:59 WELL HE WASN'T ALONE THERE.
  • 24:00 SATAN WAS THERE TO TEMPT HIM.
  • 24:02 HE WAS TEMPTED IN EVERY WAY AS WE WERE AND YET WITHOUT SIN.
  • 24:06 SO HE COULD MAKE THE ATONEMENT FOR US,
  • 24:08 BECAUSE HE WAS WITHOUT SIN.
  • 24:10 BUT IF HE HAD SINNED, IF HE HAD GIVEN INTO ANY OF THE TEMPTATION,
  • 24:13 THEN HE WOULD HAVE NEEDED ATONEMENT
  • 24:15 AND HE WOULDN'T TRULY HAVE BEEN THE MESSIAH OR THE SON OF GOD.
  • 24:17 HE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO OFFER UP THE SACRIFICE, THE FINAL SACRIFICE FOR ALL TIME.
  • 24:21 THE SECOND GOAT THEN, THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN
  • 24:23 AND THEY WOULD HAVE SLAUGHTERED AS THEY DID THE BULL,
  • 24:26 EXCEPT IT WAS FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE NATION.
  • 24:28 THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT AND THEY WOULD HAVE SLAUGHTERED IT.
  • 24:31 THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT AND OFFERED IT UP AS A BURNT OFFERING.
  • 24:34 THEY WOULD HAVE PUT THE BLOOD ON THE ALTAR,
  • 24:36 ANOINTED THE HORNS OF THE ALTAR,
  • 24:38 THEN THEY WOULD HAVE GONE IN AGAIN TO THE GOLDEN ALTAR OF INCENSE
  • 24:40 AND ANOINTED THE HORNS THERE AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SPRINKLED ON THE ARK OF THE COVENANT.
  • 24:45 WITHIN THE ARK OF THE COVENANT YOU HAD THE 10 COMMANDMENTS.
  • 24:48 WELL THE BLOOD WAS SPRINKLED ON THE OUTSIDE
  • 24:51 BECAUSE HE PAID THE PRICE WE SHOULD HAVE PAID FOR THE SINS.
  • 24:54 SO IT'S INTERESTING, YOU HAVE WITH ABRAHAM ONE MAN WITH ONE SACRIFICE WITHIN THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM OF PASSOVER.
  • 25:02 YOU HAVE ONE SACRIFICE FOR A FAMILY,
  • 25:06 THEN WITH YOM KIPPUR YOU HAVE ONE SACRIFICE FOR A NATION,
  • 25:09 THEN WITH JESUS YOU HAVE ONE SACRIFICE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 25:12 SO THE TABERNACLE STILL HAS SOMETHING TO SAY TO US TODAY?
  • 25:15 THE TABERNACLE IS AMAZING.
  • 25:17 NOW WHEN WE FIRST STARTED LOOKING AT IT I WAS INTERESTED IN THE TABERNACLE.
  • 25:21 IT WAS SOMETHING REALLY TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 25:23 BUT THE MORE AND MORE WE JUST SPENT TIME AND LOOKING AT THAT TABERNACLE
  • 25:27 AND UNDERSTANDING HOW THE THOUGHTS EVEN OF JESUS ALWAYS WERE BACK AT THE TABERNACLE,
  • 25:32 WHAT IT REPRESENTED, HOW JESUS WAS REPRESENTED IN THE TABERNACLE.
  • 25:35 I LOVE IT MORE AND MORE EVERY DAY.
  • 26:33 IT'S SO WONDERFUL TO SEE THE PARALLELS BETWEEN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 26:38 AND TO SEE YESHUA FULFILLING EVERY SINGLE JOT AND TIDDLE IN THE TABERNACLE...
  • 26:43 EVERY LITTLE PIECE OF FURNITURE SPEAKS OF YESHUA.
  • 26:46 I'M SO GRATEFUL THAT WE GET TO SHOW THIS SERIES AGAIN, MYLES.
  • 26:50 I KNOW IT.
  • 26:51 AND HE IS OUR ATONEMENT.
  • 26:52 HE'S DONE THE COMPLETE WORK FOR US.
  • 26:54 THIS HAS BEEN THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 26:57 NEXT WEEK WE'LL CONTINUE IN THE FEASTS OF OUR LORD
  • 26:59 WITH THE DAY OF TABERNACLES, THE SUKKOT, THE BOOTHS,
  • 27:04 WHICH REALLY SPEAKS ABOUT THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF CHRIST.
  • 27:07 IT'S AN INCREDIBLE SHOW.
  • 27:08 WE WANT TO INVITE YOU TO JOIN US FOR THAT NEXT WEEK.
  • 27:11 AND REMEMBER THAT OUR SHOW GOES FORWARD
  • 27:13 BECAUSE OF YOUR GIFTS AND YOUR OFFERINGS.
  • 27:15 WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP.
  • 27:16 SO PLEASE, WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR FAITHFUL SUPPORT.
  • 27:19 UNTIL WE SEE YOU AGAIN,
  • 27:22 REMEMBER, SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM...
  • 27:25 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
