Series: “Acts: Then and Now”
… The Story Continues
Myles and Katharine show us the implications of the Acts of the Apostles in history and the future.
Episode: “The Price He Paid for Us”
Myles teaches in the Garden of Gethsemane, a fitting site to discuss the blood of the sacrificed Lamb. Interviews with Sabra (native Israeli) Daniel Carmel and Arab Christian Pastor Naim Khoury underscore the price paid to follow Jesus in the Land today.

Caption transcript for Acts: Then and Now — “The Price He Paid for Us” (6/8)

  • 00:13 GO YE THEREFORE AND TEACH ALL NATIONS,
  • 00:16 BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:21 TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU.
  • 00:25 AND LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS,
  • 00:28 EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:42 SHALOM, AND WELCOME
  • 00:43 TO ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 00:45 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 00:46 THIS IS MY WIFE KATHARINE
  • 00:47 MY CO-HOST.
  • 00:48 AND TODAY WE'RE CONTINUING OUR SERIES
  • 00:50 "ACTS, THEN AND NOW... THE STORY CONTINUES".
  • 00:53 AND WOW WE'VE BEEN SEEING HOW GOD IS MOVING THE GOSPEL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:57 IT'S ARISING NOW IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:59 LAST PROGRAM WE WERE IN EPHESUS.
  • 01:00 TODAY WE'RE GOING TO HEAR A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE "ONE NEW MAN".
  • 01:04 THE ONE NEW MAN...
  • 01:05 JEW AND GENTILE...
  • 01:06 OR JEW AND ARAB AS WE'LL SEE IN THIS PROGRAM
  • 01:09 WE'RE ALSO GOING TO HEAR ABOUT THE PRICE THAT'S BEING PAID SO THAT THE GOSPEL CAN GO FORTH.
  • 01:13 THE PRICE THAT THE LORD PAID WAS A DEAR PRICE WITH HIS OWN BLOOD...HE SWEAT DROPS OF BLOOD.
  • 01:19 AND SO WE ARE GOING TO UNDERSTAND A LITTLE BIT
  • 01:22 ABOUT THE PRICE THAT'S BEING PAID IN ISRAEL.
  • 01:24 BUT NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO TO MYLES ON LOCATION.
  • 01:29 OUR SERIES IS CALLED
  • 01:31 "ACTS, THEN AND NOW"
  • 01:33 BUT IN ORDER FOR THERE TO BE
  • 01:34 AN ACTS AT PENTECOST
  • 01:36 THERE FIRST HAD TO BE A PASSOVER LAMB.
  • 01:39 WE'RE IN GAT-SMANIM,
  • 01:42 THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 01:43 THE OLIVE PRESS.
  • 01:45 AND IT WAS HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME WE SEE JESUS, YESHUA, ASKING OF HIS FATHER
  • 01:50 "IS THERE ANY WAY FOR THIS CUP OF SUFFERING TO PASS FROM ME?"
  • 01:54 "IS THERE ANY WAY THAT WE WOULD NOT BE SEPARATED,"
  • 01:58 "THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO CONTINUE IN FELLOWSHIP"
  • 02:01 "AND WOULD NOT HAVE THE SIN OF THE WORLD UPON ME?"
  • 02:03 "BUT NEVERTHELESS...NOT MY WILL BUT THINE BE DONE."
  • 02:08 WE READ IN LUKE CHAPTER 22, VERSE 44,
  • 02:12 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 02:17 IT WAS SUCH A PRESS THAT HE SWEAT DROPS OF BLOOD.
  • 02:22 HERE IN THE LAND
  • 02:24 TO BE A BELIEVER AND TO BE REACHING FOR WHAT GOD IS DOING TO SEE ISRAEL SAVED
  • 02:31 BECOMES A PRESS AS WELL.
  • 02:34 SO MANY OF OUR FRIENDS ARE WORKING DAY AND NIGHT
  • 02:37 TO SEE THE GOSPEL GO FORTH
  • 02:38 AND THEY SOMETIMES COME UNDER PERSECUTION.
  • 02:42 THEY GET PRESSED FROM WITHIN AND FROM WITHOUT.
  • 02:44 THERE'S DIFFICULTY...
  • 02:46 THERE'S TRIALS...
  • 02:47 THERE ARE SEASONS IN WHICH THEY ARE PRESSED BEYOND MEASURE
  • 02:52 BUT THEY COUNT IT ALL JOY.
  • 02:54 AND LIKE YESHUA, WHO CAME BEFORE THEM,
  • 02:57 THEY'RE REACHING OUT TO SEE OTHERS COME IN TO FELLOWSHIP.
  • 03:01 THAT PLACE OF DARKNESS THAT YESHUA SUFFERED KNOWING HE WAS GOING TO THE CROSS,
  • 03:07 KNOWING THAT HE WAS GOING TO SUFFER...
  • 03:08 HE WAS WILLING TO SUFFER IN THAT AGONY TO THE POINT OF SWEATING DROPS OF BLOOD
  • 03:14 AS HE PREPARED FOR THE NEXT DAY
  • 03:16 WHEN HE WOULD BE THE PASSOVER LAMB
  • 03:18 AS PROPHESIED BY THE SCRIPTURES FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
  • 03:23 THE PROMISE HAD COME...
  • 03:25 THAT ONE WOULD COME...
  • 03:26 THAT BLOOD WOULD BE SHED THAT WOULD BE SO PURE, SO HOLY,
  • 03:31 THAT THE BLOOD ITSELF WOULD DRAW ALL MEN...
  • 03:34 WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR MEN TO BE JOINED TO GOD HIMSELF.
  • 03:38 WHAT A STORY!
  • 03:40 AND IT WAS THIS GARDEN WHERE YESHUA AGONIZED OVER THE COMING CROSS...
  • 03:47 NOT JUST THE PAIN OF THE CROSS
  • 03:49 BUT THE TIME OF HAVING A FATHER BE TURNED AWAY FROM HIM.
  • 03:53 HE HAD NEVER KNOWN LACK OF FELLOWSHIP WITH THE FATHER.
  • 03:56 ALL HIS TIME HAD BEEN IN FELLOWSHIP WITH ABBA FATHER, WITH ADONI.
  • 04:02 AND YET HERE HE WAS PREPARING FOR THE CROSS.
  • 04:05 YESHUA AGONIZED NOT ONLY ABOUT THE CROSS THAT WAS COMING
  • 04:10 BUT ALSO BECAUSE HE WOULD BE SEPARATED FROM HIS FATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME...
  • 04:15 FOR THE FIRST AND ONLY TIME HE WHO WAS FROM HEAVEN
  • 04:18 CAME TO EARTH FOR YOU AND FOR ME
  • 04:21 AND SUFFERED HERE IN THIS GARDEN
  • 04:23 SO THAT HE COULD DRAW US CLOSER TO HIS FATHER IN HEAVEN.
  • 04:27 HE ALSO KNEW THAT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CROSS PENTECOST WAS COMING,
  • 04:33 SHAVUOT,
  • 04:35 THE BIRTH OF THE CHURCH,
  • 04:36 JEWS AND GENTILES WORSHIPPING TOGETHER
  • 04:39 BEGINNING RIGHT HERE IN JERUSALEM.
  • 04:42 AND YET HE LOOKED FORWARD KNOWING THAT THAT WOULD HAPPEN,
  • 04:45 THAT THERE WOULD BE THE COMING OF "ISH ECHAD CHADASH",
  • 04:48 THE "ONE NEW MAN".
  • 04:50 AND TODAY IN ISRAEL THERE ARE SO MANY BELIEVERS THAT ARE REACHING OUT
  • 04:55 TO THOSE WHO ARE UN-LIKENED
  • 04:57 OR THOSE THAT ARE UN-LIKED THEMSELVES.
  • 05:00 THEY'RE REACHING OUT
  • 05:01 JEWS TO ARABS,
  • 05:03 ARABS TO JEWS
  • 05:04 AND TRYING TO FIND THAT PEACE THAT WAS BROKEN DOWN,
  • 05:07 THAT WAS MADE POSSIBLE BECAUSE OF THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 05:11 SOME OF THE JEWISH MINISTRIES HERE ARE SUFFERING FOR STANDING WITH THE ARABS.
  • 05:16 AND SOME OF THE ARAB MINISTRIES HERE ARE SUFFERING FOR STANDING WITH THE JEWS
  • 05:21 BUT THEY KNOW THAT THEY ARE PAYING A SMALL PRICE
  • 05:24 COMPARED TO THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID AT CALVARY.
  • 05:28 AND SO FROM HERE IN THE OLIVE PRESS
  • 05:30 YOU CAN STILL FEEL THE AGONY OF THE LORD,
  • 05:34 YOU CAN FEEL THE COMPACTING OF JERUSALEM.
  • 05:37 ALL THESE ISSUES COMING TOGETHER AND BURSTING ONE ANOTHER
  • 05:41 JUST AS HIS FOREHEAD BURST WITH DROPS OF BLOOD.
  • 05:45 AND TODAY IN JERUSALEM AND AROUND THE WORLD...
  • 05:50 THIS AWAKENING OF THE BODY OF BELIEVERS RECOGNIZING THAT ONLY IN HIM CAN WE FIND PEACE,
  • 05:57 ONLY IN HIM CAN WE BE MADE ONE NEW MAN, A NEW CREATION.
  • 06:02 AND THAT'S THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID HERE.
  • 06:05 SO TODAY I ASK YOU TO REMEMBER THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID FOR YOU
  • 06:15 TO BE DRAWN CLOSER TO ABBA FATHER
  • 06:18 AND REMEMBER YESHUA HA MASHIACH, JESUS CHRIST, THE MESSIAH, KING...AMEN!

  • 09:01 NOW...WE'RE GOING TO GO TO BETHLEHEM
  • 09:03 WHERE WE INTERVIEWED AN ARAB-CHRISTIAN BROTHER,
  • 09:06 NAIM KHOURY WHO HAS STOOD WITH ISRAEL
  • 09:08 AND STOOD FOR HIS OWN PEOPLE DURING THE TIMES OF TROUBLES THAT THEY'VE BEEN IN.
  • 09:12 HE'S PAID A PRICE.
  • 09:13 HE'LL TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT.
  • 09:15 AND TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY,
  • 09:17 THE OTHER PART OF THE FAMILY...
  • 09:19 OUR ARAB COUSINS AND BROTHERS...
  • 09:20 THOSE THAT ARE SERVING THE LORD AND LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 09:23 WE'LL HEAR FROM HIM ABOUT THE PRICE THAT HE'S HAD TO PAY TO BE A DISCIPLE OF YESHUA.
  • 09:30 PASTOR NAIM...
  • 09:32 HERE WE SIT,
  • 09:33 THE SON OF ISAAC,
  • 09:34 THE SON OF ISHMAEL...
  • 09:35 AND YET WE'RE ONE BECAUSE OF SAR SHALOM THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
  • 09:39 TELL ME, HOW DID YOU COME TO LOVE ISRAEL AND THE JEWS
  • 09:42 WHILE PREACHING THE GOSPEL TO YOUR ARAB BROTHERS AND SISTERS?
  • 09:45 THANK YOU BROTHER MYLES,
  • 09:46 IT'S A GREAT JOY
  • 09:47 TO HAVE YOU HERE IN BETHLEHEM,
  • 09:48 THE PLACE WHERE JESUS WAS BORN.
  • 09:52 I'M SO THANKFUL TO SEE THAT THE WORD OF GOD IS SO CLEAR THAT JESUS WAS A JEW
  • 10:01 AND THE WORD OF GOD IS WRITTEN MOST OF JEWISH PEOPLE, PROPHETS AND DISCIPLES AND TEACHERS.
  • 10:11 AND I'M SO THANKFUL TO FIND OUT THAT THERE IS ONLY WAY TO BE ABLE TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.
  • 10:19 IT'S TO THE JEW FIRST AND ALSO TO THE GREEK.
  • 10:24 YOU'VE TAKEN A STAND HERE FOR ISRAEL, THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 10:29 AND YET YOU ALSO ARE GROWING AS A WORK
  • 10:32 AS MORE AND MORE ARABS ARE BEING BORN AGAIN HERE.
  • 10:35 PRAISE THE LORD!
  • 10:36 THAT'S WHAT THE LORD SAID,
  • 10:38 "I'LL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS THEE"
  • 10:40 "AND I'LL CURSE THEM THAT CURSE THEE."
  • 10:42 AND WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN THE WHOLE BIBLE, THE NEW TESTAMENT AND THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 10:48 AS THE INFALLIBLE, INSPIRED WORD OF GOD,
  • 10:51 I AM SURE YOU WILL BE BLESSED
  • 10:54 BECAUSE THE COVENANT OF GOD WITH ABRAHAM
  • 10:57 WAS AN EVERLASTING COVENANT FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.
  • 11:00 NO ONE CAN CHANGE IT.
  • 11:02 NO ONE CAN REPLACE IT.
  • 11:03 NO ONE CAN ERASE IT.
  • 11:05 IN OTHER WORDS THERE IS NO SUCH REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY IN THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 11:09 THAT'S WHY WHEN WE STAND ON THE PROMISES OF GOD AS IT IS
  • 11:13 I AM SURE 100 PER CENT GOD WILL BLESS THE MINISTRY.
  • 11:18 AND ALONG THOSE LINES YOU HAVE A WORK HERE IN BETHLEHEM.
  • 11:21 BUT NOT ONLY SO, THERE ARE SATELLITE WORKS ALL OVER.
  • 11:24 TELL US ABOUT THOSE.
  • 11:26 YES, THE CHURCH OF BETHLEHEM IS THE UMBRELLA OF SIX DIFFERENT MINISTRIES IN JUDEA AND SAMARIA.
  • 11:32 WE HAVE THE OLD CITY CHURCH.
  • 11:34 WE HAVE MY SON STEVEN, PASTOR IN NORTH JERUSALEM.
  • 11:38 WE HAVE JERICHO CHURCH.
  • 11:40 WE HAVE OUR NEW CENTER "THE SHEPHERD'S FIELD".
  • 11:44 WE HAVE OUR OWN BIBLE SCHOOL
  • 11:45 TRAINING YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN HERE.
  • 11:49 WE JUST STARTED A NEW WORK IN CITY OF JENIN, WHICH IS A BORDER OF MEGIDDO VALLEY
  • 11:54 AND GOD BLESSED US SO BEAUTIFULLY TO SEE HIS PROMISE TO US.
  • 12:02 HE WILL BLESS...
  • 12:03 THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT.
  • 12:05 AND I THINK THAT THIS GROWTH WILL BE CONTINUING IN THE DAYS AHEAD.
  • 12:08 AMEN...AMEN!
  • 12:09 IN BETHLEHEM WE RUN AROUND 300 PEOPLE.
  • 12:12 THE LAST TEN YEARS I CAN SAY WE HAD TRIPLED...
  • 12:17 NOT DOUBLED...
  • 12:19 WE TRIPLED BECAUSE THE MINISTRY HERE IS GROWING BECAUSE WE DO BELIEVE IN MIRACLES.
  • 12:25 WE HAVE THE BEST MINISTRY IN OUR CHURCH IN BETHLEHEM...
  • 12:30 IT'S THE DELIVERANCE MINISTRY.
  • 12:32 AND THAT'S BRINGING SO MANY, MANY PEOPLE
  • 12:36 TO THE SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 12:39 AND THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.
  • 12:41 SATAN HAS BEEN DEFEATED.
  • 12:43 HE'S A LOSER ANYWAY
  • 12:44 AND WE HAVE VICTORY IN JESUS.
  • 12:46 YES AND YOU'RE TOUCHING PEOPLE WHERE THEY LIVE...
  • 12:48 IN THEIR HEARTS WHERE THEY REALLY NEED THE HELP.
  • 12:51 YES, THAT'S WHERE THE NEED IS TODAY.
  • 12:53 PASTOR, I KNOW YOU HAVE HAD AN EFFECTIVE MINISTRY
  • 12:55 WORKING ALONGSIDE THE JEWISH MINISTRIES IN ISRAEL
  • 12:58 BOTH YOURSELF AND YOUR SON WITH THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 13:01 TELL ME ABOUT THAT.
  • 13:03 YES, THANK THE LORD BECAUSE WE DO HAVE LOTS OF THINGS IN COMMON
  • 13:06 AS FAR AS THEY BELIEVE IN THE COVENANT OF GOD WITH ABRAHAM...
  • 13:10 WE DO TOO...
  • 13:12 THE OLD TESTAMENT IS GOD'S WORD...
  • 13:14 WE DO BELIEVE IN THAT...
  • 13:16 AND THAT'S WHY WE PARTICIPATE IN SOME OF THEIR ACTIVITIES, SOME OF THEIR MEETINGS.
  • 13:20 I SPEAK AND MY SON SPEAKS IN THEIR CONFERENCES.
  • 13:23 AND I AM SO THANKFUL TO SEE THAT ONE THING CAN UNITE US TOGETHER
  • 13:28 AS MESSIANIC JEWS AND PALESTINIAN BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS
  • 13:33 IS YESHUA HAMASHIACH, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 13:35 AMEN...AND YET YOU'VE PAID A PRICE BEING HERE HAVEN'T YOU?
  • 13:39 YES SIR, BECAUSE OF STANDING WITH THE BIBLE,
  • 13:44 WITH THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 13:45 AND BELIEVING IN THE COVENANT OF GOD WITH ABRAHAM
  • 13:48 OUR CHURCH HAS BEEN BOMBED 14 TIMES.
  • 13:51 I WAS SHOT...
  • 13:53 FOUR BULLETS...
  • 13:54 ONE HIT MY LEFT SHOULDER HERE.
  • 13:56 ANY MANY, MANY, MANY PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES
  • 13:59 BUT YOU KNOW IT IS WORTH IT ALL TO SERVE JESUS
  • 14:04 AND TO BE ABLE TO TAKE A STAND FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
  • 14:08 BECAUSE WE DO HAVE VICTORY IN JESUS.
  • 14:12 AND TO TAKE THAT TO STAND WE ARE SO THANKFUL THAT WE ARE STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF GOD,
  • 14:19 HALLELUJAH!
  • 14:20 IT'S REALLY AN END TIMES MESSAGE
  • 14:22 THAT AS THE DAY APPROACHES
  • 14:23 WE REALLY NEED TO BE A "BOTH/AND" PEOPLE.
  • 14:25 WE NEED TO STAND WITH ISRAEL
  • 14:27 BUT WE ALL NEED TO STAND WITH THE ARAB BODY HERE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AS WELL.
  • 14:31 INDEED, THAT'S TRUE BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE DON'T HAVE AN IDEA
  • 14:36 THAT THERE ARE PALESTINIANS AND ARABS WHO LOVE JESUS AND LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 14:42 AND IF YOU LISTEN TO THIS INTERVIEW YOU WILL KNOW NOW.
  • 14:47 YOU DON'T HAVE AN EXCUSE...
  • 14:49 YOU SAY "I DON'T KNOW"...
  • 14:50 YOU WILL KNOW NOW.
  • 14:52 THERE ARE BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL PEOPLE...PALESTINIANS...ARABS WHO LOVE JESUS AND LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 14:58 AND THEY ARE PAYING A BIG PRICE.
  • 15:00 YES, AND I THINK THAT THE MESSAGE WE'RE SENDING OUT TODAY
  • 15:03 IS THAT WE'RE TO DO GOOD TO ALL MEN,
  • 15:05 ESPECIALLY THOSE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH... THAT'S JEWS AND ARABS.
  • 15:09 AMEN...AMEN!
  • 15:10 JESUS IS THE ANSWER FOR ALL THROUGH THIS.
  • 15:14 IF SOMEBODY ASKS ME WHAT THE SOLUTION IS BETWEEN THE PALESTINIAN AND THE JEWS
  • 15:18 I SAY YESHUA, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
  • 15:20 HE'S THE ONLY ANSWER THAT IS RIGHT.
  • 15:22 FOR THE WHOLE SITUATION.
  • 15:24 HALLELUJAH!
  • 15:25 AMEN...THANK YOU PASTOR.
  • 15:26 THANK YOU
  • 15:29 THIS IS REALLY THE UNTOLD STORY.
  • 15:32 YOU WILL NOT HEAR THIS IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA...
  • 15:34 THE ARABS LOVING THE JEWS BECAUSE OF YESHUA
  • 15:37 AND THE JEWS LOVING THE ARABS FOR THE SAME REASON.
  • 15:40 WE'RE GOING TO HEAR NOW FROM DANIEL CARMEL, A SABRA, A JEWISH BROTHER BORN IN THE LAND
  • 15:45 WHO HAS BECOME A BELIEVER AND HAS GOT A GREAT MINISTRY ON THE SEA OF GALILEE.
  • 15:50 SO LET'S GO TO MY INTERVIEW WITH DANIEL CARMEL.
  • 15:55 DANIEL YOU'RE A NATIVE ISRAELI.
  • 15:57 YOU GREW UP HERE.
  • 15:59 TELL US ABOUT WHERE YOU GREW UP AND HOW YOU CAME TO FAITH.
  • 16:01 I WAS BORN IN 1964 IN HAIFA.
  • 16:04 HAIFA IS A CITY IN THE
  • 16:06 NORTHWEST OF ISRAEL.
  • 16:07 AND MY MOTHER WAS A VERY UN-ORTHODOX JEWISH GIRL...
  • 16:10 SHE WAS ONLY 15 WHEN I WAS BORN...
  • 16:12 SHE WAS NOT MARRIED
  • 16:14 AND SHE WAS FORCED TO GIVE ME UP FOR ADOPTION.
  • 16:17 AND I STAYED IN HAIFA WITH MY ADOPTIVE PARENTS.
  • 16:20 I GREW UP LIKE ANY REGULAR KID IN ISRAEL.
  • 16:23 NOT RELIGIOUS
  • 16:25 NOT RELIGIOUS...
  • 16:26 TOTALLY SECULAR.
  • 16:28 AND ACTUALLY, ONE OF THE ONLY TIMES I WAS IN A SYNAGOGUE
  • 16:36 WAS IN MY BAR MITZVAH.
  • 16:40 AND I FINISHED SCHOOL...
  • 16:42 I WENT TO THE ARMY...
  • 16:43 THREE YEARS IN THE ARMY.
  • 16:44 AND AFTER THE ARMY I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE SEA.
  • 16:46 AND I WENT TO MARINE SCHOOL
  • 16:49 AND WHEN I GRADUATED I FOUND A JOB IN HAIFA PORTS.
  • 16:51 AND AT THE AGE OF 28 I DECIDED TO OPEN THE FILES OF THE ADOPTION
  • 16:57 AND TO FIND MY BIRTH MOTHER.
  • 16:59 AND I FOUND HER RIGHT HERE IN GALILEE, HALLELUJAH!
  • 17:04 ALSO I FOUND FOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
  • 17:07 INSTANT FAMILY
  • 17:09 INSTANT FAMILY...YES
  • 17:10 A YEAR AFTER I FOUND THEM I LEFT HAIFA
  • 17:13 AND THEN CAME OVER HERE TO LIVE IN GALILEE AND KIBBUTZ GINOSAR.
  • 17:17 MY PARENTS AND MY ADOPTED SISTER WAS A PART OF THE PICTURE
  • 17:22 AND WE BECAME LIKE A BIG FAMILY.
  • 17:25 I CAME OVER HERE...
  • 17:26 I STARTED LOOKING FOR A JOB.
  • 17:28 AND THE ONLY JOB I COULD FIND ON THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 17:33 WAS ON THE BOATS THAT TAKES PILGRIMS DAY BY DAY.
  • 17:37 AND SINCE THE FIRST DAY I WAS ON THE BOATS
  • 17:39 I WAS EXPOSED TO THE WORD OF GOD EVERY DAY.
  • 17:42 I HEARD THE TEACHING AND THE PREACHING OF THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 17:45 SO YOU WERE NOT A RELIGIOUS PERSON
  • 17:48 BUT YOUR JOB PUT YOU IN CONTACT WITH THE SCRIPTURES EVERY SINGLE DAY.
  • 17:53 I COULD FEEL THE PRESENCE ALL THE TIME ON THE BOAT YOU KNOW?
  • 17:57 AND THIS REALLY DREW ME IN.
  • 18:01 MANY PEOPLE PRAYED FOR ME.
  • 18:02 MANY PEOPLE TALKED TO ME.
  • 18:04 AND THEN FIVE YEARS AFTER I CAME OVER HERE
  • 18:06 I JUST WOKE UP WITH A GREAT LOVE TO YESHUA.
  • 18:08 HALLELUJAH
  • 18:10 SO ONE DAY YOU WERE NOT A BELIEVER AND THE NEXT DAY YOU ARE A BELIEVER.
  • 18:14 WELL AT THE BEGINNING IT WAS IN MY HEAD BUT NOT IN THE HEART
  • 18:18 AND THEN IT CAME TO THE HEART YOU KNOW?
  • 18:19 IN ONE TIME IT CAME TO THE HEART.
  • 18:21 I THINK OUR VIEWERS ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN WHAT IT'S LIKE
  • 18:24 TO BE A BELIEVER IN A LARGELY SECULAR COUNTRY
  • 18:28 AND ESPECIALLY IN YOUR LINE OF WORK
  • 18:32 TO BE AMONG SOME ROUGH CHARACTERS ON THE SEA OF GALILEE...
  • 18:36 YOU KNOW...BOATMEN.
  • 18:38 (LAUGHS)...YEAH!
  • 18:39 IS THERE PERSECUTION INVOLVED?
  • 18:42 WHAT'S THAT LIKE?
  • 18:43 YES...YES
  • 18:44 AT THE BEGINNING WHEN I CAME TO FAITH IT WAS A TOP SECRET.
  • 18:47 NOBODY KNEW ABOUT IT EXCEPT US.
  • 18:49 BUT THEN I COULDN'T HOLD IT IN ANYMORE.
  • 18:52 AND I STARTED SHARING.
  • 18:55 AND I ALSO STARTED SINGING.
  • 18:58 AND AT THE BEGINNING, THE PEOPLE I WAS WORKING FOR...
  • 19:03 I WAS AN EMPLOYEE...
  • 19:05 ONE OF THE COMPANIES ON THE SEA OF GALILEE.
  • 19:07 THEY LIKED IT VERY MUCH...
  • 19:08 THEY HAVE A BELIEVER ON THE BOAT...WOW!
  • 19:11 THIS IS GOOD...VERY GOOD!
  • 19:12 GOOD FOR BUSINESS
  • 19:14 YES, VERY GOOD FOR BUSINESS
  • 19:16 BUT THEN VERY, VERY...
  • 19:18 IN A SHORT TIME ...
  • 19:20 AFTER A SHORT TIME THEY STARTED TO GET FAXES, TELEPHONE CALLS, EMAILS...
  • 19:25 "WE WANT DANIEL, WE WANT DANIEL, WE WANT DANIEL."
  • 19:27 SO I BECAME LIKE A THREAT FOR THEM.
  • 19:30 SO THEY LET ME GO.
  • 19:31 AND THE THREAT WAS?
  • 19:33 THAT IF I WILL OPEN A COMPANY OF MY OWN I WILL TAKE THE WHOLE THING.
  • 19:38 AND I WASN'T PLANNING TO OPEN A COMPANY OF MY OWN.
  • 19:42 RIGHT
  • 19:43 I WAS PLANNING TO STAY THERE.
  • 19:45 BUT YOU WOUND UP WITH YOUR OWN BOAT...
  • 19:48 THERE'S ANOTHER ONE IN THE WORKS...
  • 19:49 YOU'RE ABOUT TO HAVE ANOTHER BOAT ON THE SEA.
  • 19:51 AND I THINK MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE IT'S THE BEST BOAT RIGHT ON THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 19:56 BECAUSE OF YOUR FAITH.
  • 19:57 AND THERE WAS SOME OPPOSITION.
  • 19:59 THERE WAS SOME PROBLEMS.
  • 20:01 YEAH...YEAH
  • 20:02 WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 20:04 MANY TIMES THE OWNERS OF THIS COMPANY THAT I AM TALKING ABOUT...
  • 20:07 I DON'T WANT TO SAY THE NAME OF THE COMPANY.
  • 20:09 THEY WOULD STAND ON THE PIER THERE SHOUTING
  • 20:13 "CHRISTIAN GO HOME...CHRISTIAN GO HOME"...YOU KNOW?
  • 20:15 AND THEN A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN A YEAR AGO
  • 20:20 THE SONS OF THE OWNERS CAME OVER TO THE BOATS AND JUST ATTACKED US PHYSICALLY.
  • 20:25 WOW!
  • 20:26 PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE...
  • 20:27 MY WORKERS...
  • 20:28 THEY TOOK MY WORKERS.
  • 20:29 DID YOU REPORT IT TO THE POLICE?
  • 20:31 YES I DID AND THE POLICE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.
  • 20:34 SO FOR OUR VIEWERS THEY NEED TO KNOW
  • 20:37 THAT IT'S DIFFICULT TO BE A PERSON OF FAITH IN ISRAEL.
  • 20:41 IT'S NOT JUST THE HOLY LAND,
  • 20:43 THERE'S ALSO A LOT OF OPPOSITION TO HAVE TO LIVE WITH.
  • 20:46 YES, THERE IS A LOT OF OPPOSITION.
  • 20:48 WELL, ACTUALLY HERE IN THE NORTH IT'S NOTHING
  • 20:51 COMPARED TO WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE SOUTH.
  • 20:54 THERE IT IS CRAZY...
  • 20:56 TOTALLY CRAZY.
  • 20:58 BUT HERE ALSO WE EXPERIENCE THE PERSECUTION AND THE...
  • 21:03 BUT IT HASN'T CHANGED YOUR FAITH;
  • 21:08 IT HASN'T CHANGED YOUR WAY OF LIVING?
  • 21:10 NO...THE OPPOSITE
  • 21:11 THE OPPOSITE...
  • 21:12 MEANING YOU'RE STRONGER.
  • 21:13 YES, MADE ME STRONGER AND I WANT TO TELL YOU ONE THING.
  • 21:16 WHATEVER THEY TRY TO DO TO US COMES TO OUR BEST.
  • 21:21 EVENTUALLY GOD TURNS IT TO OUR BEST.
  • 21:25 SO YOU'RE LIVING THE SCRIPTURE
  • 21:27 THAT EVERY TONGUE THAT RISES AGAINST YOU IN JUDGMENT
  • 21:29 YOU SHALL CONDEMN
  • 21:31 IN THE MEANING THAT WHATEVER OPPOSITION COMES
  • 21:34 GOD IS GOING TO BACK YOU UP
  • 21:35 AND IMPROVE YOUR SITUATION.
  • 21:37 AMEN!THAT'S RIGHT!AMEN!
  • 21:38 IT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 21:39 AND YOU HAVE THIS GREAT MUSICAL GIFT.
  • 21:41 WAS THAT ALWAYS PART OF YOUR LIFE?
  • 21:42 WELL THE MUSIC WAS ALWAYS A PART OF MY LIFE
  • 21:45 BUT NOT THE SINGING.
  • 21:47 I WAS A DRUMMER ALL MY LIFE.
  • 21:49 AND I KNEW I COULD SING
  • 21:52 BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO SING.
  • 21:56 AND THEN I MET THE LORD.
  • 21:58 I DIDN'T WANT TO DRUM ANYMORE.
  • 21:59 I JUST WANTED TO SING AND TO PRAISE HIM.
  • 22:01 AND THEN I STARTED TRANSLATING THESE VERY POPULAR WORSHIP SONGS TO HEBREW
  • 22:05 BECAUSE YOU KNOW HEBREW IS THE LANGUAGE OF YESHUA.
  • 22:08 AND IT'S GREAT BLESSING TO PRESENT IT IN HIS OWN LANGUAGE.
  • 22:13 YES
  • 22:14 THE SECOND REASON I DID IT
  • 22:16 WAS BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WILL GET TO THE KINGDOM
  • 22:20 WILL HAVE TO SPEAK HEBREW THERE.
  • 22:21 IT'S THE LANGUAGE OF HEAVEN.
  • 22:23 AMEN
  • 22:24 AMEN
  • 22:25 SO THEY BETTER START LEARNING IT HERE.
  • 22:26 MIGHT AS WELL PRACTICE
  • 22:27 THANK YOU VERY MUCH...
  • 22:29 THIS IS REALLY WONDERFUL.
  • 22:31 WELL BLESS YOU

  • 25:15 YOU KNOW DANIEL'S MUSIC IS SO AWESOME
  • 25:18 THAT WHEN WE WERE IN ISRAEL THE LAST TIME
  • 25:20 WE HAD 100 BELIEVERS ON HIS BOAT ON THE GALILEE.
  • 25:23 AND WHEN WE WERE WORSHIPPING WITH HIM
  • 25:25 IT WAS LIKE HEAVEN ITSELF.
  • 25:27 IT WAS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE ANOINTING OF LOVE AND THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT
  • 25:32 THAT OTHER BOATS ON THE SEA WERE COMING OVER TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON IN OUR BOAT...
  • 25:37 THAT'S THE TRUTH...
  • 25:38 BECAUSE OF THE ANOINTING THAT WAS ON THE MUSIC
  • 25:40 AND THE DEPTH OF WORSHIP THAT WE TOUCHED.
  • 25:42 THAT'S A REGULAR PART OF OUR TOURS.
  • 25:44 WE'RE SEEING THE ARABS AND THE JEWS IN THIS PROGRAM
  • 25:48 AND THE PRICE THAT THEY PAID
  • 25:50 AND THE FACT THAT GOD HAS DONE IT FIRST...
  • 25:52 PAID THE PRICE FOR US SO WE COULD LOVE HIM TOGETHER.
  • 25:55 IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING AND ALSO WHEN WE SEE LOOKING UNTO JESUS.
  • 26:00 IN HEBREWS CHAPTER 12, VERSE 2, IT SAYS,
  • 26:11 BECAUSE HE SAW THE PRIZE BEFORE HIM.
  • 26:14 AND THEN THAT'S HOW THESE BELIEVERS IN THE LAND ARE ABLE TO GO THROUGH PERSECUTION
  • 26:17 AND THAT'S WHY WE ARE ABLE TO TOUCH THAT SWEET WORSHIP
  • 26:20 IS BECAUSE OF THE FRAGRANCE OF THE SUFFERING.
  • 26:23 SO WE JUST THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THIS MINISTRY.
  • 26:28 WE THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO BRING THIS MESSAGE INTO YOUR HOME.
  • 26:32 AND WE THANK THE LORD THAT WE GET TO DO THIS TOGETHER.
  • 26:36 IT'S REALLY TRUE.
  • 26:37 WE'RE ABLE TO SEE SOMETHING THAT YOU NEVER HEAR ABOUT ON THE TELEVISION...
  • 26:40 JEWS AND ARABS WORSHIPPING THE LORD TOGETHER.
  • 26:43 THERE'S NOTHING QUITE LIKE IT.
  • 26:45 SO UNTIL WE SEE YOU AGAIN
  • 26:46 WE WANT TO REMIND YOU
  • 26:47 PLEASE
  • 26:48 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 26:50 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
