Transcript

  • 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.
  • 00:44 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO A SPECIAL EDITION OF ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 00:48 I'M MYLES WEISS AND WITH ME TODAY IS OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, MARK LEVITT. >>HELLO AND IT'S GOOD TO HAVE MARK WITH US.
  • 00:54 WE WANT TO GIVE YOU A "BEHIND THE SCENES" LOOK AT ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES.
  • 00:56 SO TELL US ABOUT THE EARLY DAYS WITH ZOLA.
  • 01:00 WELL ZOLA BECAME A BELIEVER IN 1971 THROUGH CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR CHRIST.
  • 01:05 HE THEN BEGAN ATTENDING A MESSIANIC CONGREGATION TEACHING PASSOVER, WENT ON TO LIVE RADIO, PUBLISHED SOME BOOKS AND IN 1978 FOUND HIMSELF ON TELEVISION.
  • 01:13 SO THERE'S A LOT OF BUZZ RIGHT NOW IN ISRAELI MINISTRY BUT WE WERE REALLY ONE OF THE FIRST.
  • 01:18 THAT'S RIGHT, ESPECIALLY BRINGING BACK LOCATION FOOTAGE FROM THE HOLY LAND.
  • 01:22 RIGHT, AND THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SO IMPRESSIVE, PEOPLE LOOK AT OUR PROGRAMS AND THINK THAT THEY ARE HOLLYWOOD LEVEL PRODUCTIONS BUT EVERY MINISTRY DOLLAR IS REALLY PUT TO WORK.
  • 01:30 ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER WE HAVE VOLUNTEERS THAT HELP US IN ISRAEL DURING THE DRAMATIZATIONS.
  • 01:35 WE BORROW STUDIO SPACE HERE IN AMERICA SOMETIMES AND HAVE A VERY HUMBLE STUDIO HERE ACTUALLY.
  • 01:40 AND WE DON'T ONLY MINISTER IN ISRAEL TO BRING ISRAEL TO THE VIEWER BUT WE ALSO MINISTER TO ISRAEL.
  • 01:46 THAT'S RIGHT,WE HAVE THREE "TO THE JEW FIRST" MISSION TRIPS.
  • 01:49 TODD BAKER, OUR THEOLOGIAN, GOES WITH A PARTNER... WITNESSES DIRECTLY TO THE ISRAELIES AND WRITES ABOUT IT IN OUR NEWSLETTERS.
  • 01:56 WE ALSO SUPPORT EITAN SHISHKOFF UP IN THE NORTH.
  • 01:59 "THE TENTS OF MERCY" AND THEN HE HAS AN ARTICLE HE WRITES FROM HAIFFA EACH MONTH.
  • 02:03 RIGHT, HE'S IN OUR NEWSLETTER AND WE HAVE THIS NEWSLETTER EVERY MONTH.
  • 02:06 IT'S FREE TO YOU.
  • 02:07 IT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 02:09 KATHARINE AND I HAVE BEEN THRILLED TO WRITE FOR THE LETTER BECAUSE IT'S REALLY MORE THAN A LETTER... IT'S AN ENTIRE MAGAZINE THAT DOES THE WORK OF GATHERING THE TRUTH FOR OUR VIEWERS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 02:17 EXACTLY RIGHT, AND THERE'S A HEBREW LESSON IN THERE, OTHER BIBLE LESSONS, KATHARINE WRITES AN ARTICLE IN THERE EACH MONTH, WE HAVE A CLASSIC ZOLA ARTICLE, THERE ARE TEACHING MATERIALS THAT ARE HIGHLIGHTED EACH MONTH.
  • 02:28 IT'S REALLY A WONDERFUL MAGAZINE.
  • 02:30 IT'S A GREAT GIFT TO YOU IF YOU GET IN TOUCH WITH US AT LEVITT.COM OR 1-800-WONDERS.
  • 02:35 WE'D BE GLAD TO SEND THAT TO YOU.
  • 02:37 TELL ME ALSO, THERE'S A NEW GIFT PROGRAM THAT TAKES THE WORRY OUT OF GIVINGOR MAKES IT EASIER FOR FOLKS DOESN'T IT?
  • 02:43 YES, IT'S A MONTHLY GIFT PROGRAM.
  • 02:46 PEOPLE ENROLL WITH EITHER THEIR CREDIT CARD OR CHECKING ACCOUNT $8 - $12 - $16 PER MONTH AND THEN THAT'S VERY EFFICIENT FOR US BECAUSE THERE'S NO POSTAGE, VERY LITTLE ADMINISTRATIVE TIME AND THEN TO SHOW OUR APPRECIATION WE LET THEM CHOOSE ANY OF OUR BOOKS FOR FREE.
  • 03:00 THAT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 03:01 THERE'S SUCH AN INCREDIBLE LIBRARY AND SUCH A LEGACY THAT ZOLA LEFT FOR US.
  • 03:06 HE WAS REALLY CONCERNED THAT THE MINISTRY CONTINUE IN HIS ABSENCE.
  • 03:10 WE KNOW HE'S IN HEAVEN, HE'S WITH THE LORD.
  • 03:13 BUT WE'VE BEEN SO BLESSED TO SEE THE MINISTRY GO ON AND I THINK THAT THAT'S BEEN THE HEARTBEAT OF WHAT YOU'VE WANTED AND WHAT ZOLA WANTED, WAS FOR THIS WORK NOT TO CEASE BUT RATHER TO EXPAND.
  • 03:22 THAT'S RIGHT AND IF YOU LOOK ON LINE AT LEVITT.COM YOU'LL SEE OUR MISSION STATEMENT HAS REMAINED CONSISTENT THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.
  • 03:29 IT'S REALLY ABOUT THE LORD. >>EXACTLY I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR COMING AND FOR REALLY GETTING OUR VIEWERS TO SEE BEHIND THE SCENES HERE AT ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 03:36 MY PLEASURE AND THEN I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE GOING TO SHOW THEM A LITTLE TOUR OF THE OFFICE HERE SHORTLY.

  • 07:07 WELCOME BACK I'M JOINED BY MY WIFE KATHERINE.
  • 07:10 IT'S A PLEASURE TO BE HERE.
  • 07:11 WHAT A THRILL FOR US TO BE MINISTERING TO AND FOR ISRAEL AGAIN.
  • 07:14 WELL ISRAEL IS IN OUR HEART AND IT'S IN GOD'S HEART AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE HEAR FROM PEOPLE IN THE LAND AND THAT THE WORD OF THE LORD GOES FORTH FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 07:23 YOU KNOW, JERUSALEM IS MENTIONED 700 TIMES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 07:26 IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO THE LORD AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT SO IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT A MINISTRY THAT SUPPORTS ISRAEL AND SUPPORTS THE TRUTH COMING FROM HIS WORD.
  • 07:35 REALLY, THAT IS CASE.
  • 07:37 THERE'S SUCH DIS-INFORMATION COMING THROUGH THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA.
  • 07:40 SO MANY LIES... HOLOCAUST DENIAL... SO FRUSTRATING FOR ME AS A JEWISH PERSON TO HEAR THESE LIES GOING FORTH THAT NEVER HAPPEN.
  • 07:48 I GREW UP WITH PEOPLE WHO HAD THE TATOOS ON THEIR ARM FROM BEING IN THE HOLOCAUST AND I'M JUST OUTRAGED THAT HOLOCAUST DENIAL IS GOING FORTH IN OUR WORLD TODAY.
  • 07:59 AND WE GET A CHANCE TO SPEAK ABOUT THAT.
  • 08:02 WE GET A CHANCE TO BRING THE TRUTH OF THE GOOD NEWS THAT'S COMING FROM ISRAEL.
  • 08:05 I ALSO THINK THERE IS AN AWAKENING HAPPENING IN THE BODY OF HOW DOES THIS ISRAEL FIT IN WHAT I'M DOING WITH MY LIFE?
  • 08:13 AND THAT'S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT WITH US HERE AT ZLM BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN A PROVEN MINISTRY OF TELLING THE PEOPLE OF WHAT EXACTLY GOD IS DOING THROUGH HIS WORD FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END.
  • 08:26 IT'S A COMPLETE BOOK... THE OLD AND THE NEW.
  • 08:29 EXACTLY...A SEAMLESS CONNECTION BETWEEN HEBREW SCRIPTURES, THE OLD TESTAMENT, TANAKH, AND THE B'RIT HADASHAH... THE NEW TESTAMENT... ITS ONE STORY.
  • 08:37 AND AT THE HEART OF THE STORY IS THIS CHOSEN PEOPLE AND THE MESSIAH WHO COMES THROUGH THE CHOSEN PEOPLE AND THE GIFT OF THE LAND TO THE CHOSEN PEOPLE, AND THEN GOD'S PREPARING THOSE PEOPLE FOR THE RETURN... FOR YESHUA COMING BACK.
  • 08:51 WE'RE REALLY IN THAT SEASON.
  • 08:53 AND I WANT TO THANK PEOPLE THAT HAVE GIVEN TO THIS MINISTRY BECAUSE I'VE HEARD TESTIMONIES THAT THEY HAD A REVELATION FROM GOD ABOUT THE HEART OF ISRAEL THAT'S IN GOD'S HEART AND THAT THEY HAVE RECEIVED A CALL NOW TO CARRY THIS PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM FROM WATCHING THIS VERY SHOW.
  • 09:09 SO WE WANT THAT LEGACY TO CONTINUE TO THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 09:13 EXACTLY...YOU KNOW VIEWERS, OUR PARTNERS, ARE "NATSARIM".
  • 09:16 IN HEBREW NATSARIM ARE THE SHOOTS THAT GROW UP OUT OF THE OLD OLIVE TREE, ISRAEL...THE CHRISTIANS.
  • 09:22 BUT IT ALSO MEANS "WATCHMEN" AND OUR VIEWERS, YOU ARE THE "NATSARIM", YOU ARE THE "WATCHMEN" WHO ARE KEEPING THE WORD OF THE LORD IN THE DAYS IN WHICH WE LIVE BECAUSE THERE'S SO MUCH THAT WE'RE PUSHING BACK AGAINST WHERE DIS-INFORMATION AND LIES ARE BEING TOLD ABOUT GOD'S WORD AND ABOUT GOD'S PEOPLE.
  • 09:40 AND YOU BY STANDING WITH US ARE ABLE TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THAT AND WE'RE REALLY GRATEFUL THAT WE CAN WORK TOGETHER IN THAT WAY.
  • 09:47 WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BRING YOU SOME OF THE GREATEST MUSIC THAT'S BEING MADE IN OUR ERA AND RIGHT NOW WE WANT TO GO TO ONE OF OUR DEAR FRIENDS, A FRIEND OF THE MINISTRY, A PERSONAL FRIEND OF OURS.
  • 09:58 SO LET'S GO HEAR FROM TED PEARCE AT THIS TIME.

  • 13:19 WE WOULD LOVE TO HOST YOU IN ISRAEL.
  • 13:21 IT NEVER GETS OLD FOR US.
  • 13:22 WHEN YOU COME WITH US YOU'LL SEE THE ANCIENT ROCKS AND MEET THE LIVING STONE.
  • 13:26 I MEAN YOU'LL SEE THE SITES THAT YOU READ ABOUT IN THE BIBLE AND YOU'LL ALSO MEET THOSE THAT ARE MINISTERING IN THE LAND.
  • 13:32 AND IT REALLY WILL OPEN UP THE WORD AND PUSH BACK AGAINST THE DIS-INFORMATION THAT'S IN THE WORLD TODAY.
  • 13:38 UNTIL YOU COME WITH US WE'LL BRING ISRAEL TO YOU BY OUR NEWSLETTER, BY COMING TO LEVITT.COM WE NEED TO REALLY REACH THE NEXT GENERATION DON'T WE?
  • 13:46 IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO REACH THE NEXT GENERATION AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT.
  • 13:49 YOU KNOW GOD HAS PUT THROUGH US A HEART FOR ISRAEL TO OUR BOYS.
  • 13:54 AND THEY ARE SO GRATEFUL BEING IN COLLEGE NOW THEY SAY, "MOM AND DAD IT'S NOT BEING TAUGHT IN COLLEGE."
  • 14:00 AND MATTER OF FACT THEY'RE OPPOSITE.
  • 14:03 RIGHT, ANTI-SEMITISM IS BEING TAUGHT.
  • 14:07 AND THAT'S LARGELY BECAUSE THE SAUDI-ARABIANS ARE BUYING UP PROFESSORIAL CHAIRS IN OUR UNIVERSITIES SO THEY CAN CONTROL THE CURRICULUM AND GET THE WAHHABISM OF ISLAM INTO OUR UNIVERSITIES INSTEAD OF THE TRUTH, AND A BALANCED TRUTH, ABOUT ISRAEL AND ISLAM.
  • 14:24 AND ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT TO EXIST.
  • 14:26 THAT AFTER THE HOLOCAUST THE LORD SAID HE WAS GOING RESTORE THEM BACK.
  • 14:31 HE HAS RESTORED THEM BACK.
  • 14:32 THEY WERE RECOGNIZED BY THE U.N.
  • 14:34 AND THEY'RE CONTINUALLY RECOGNIZED BY THE LORD BECAUSE HIS WORD IS ETERNAL.
  • 14:38 AND HE WOULD SAY HE WOULD NO LONGER PLUCK THEM OUT OF THEIR LAND.
  • 14:41 IT IS SO IMPORTANT THAT THE NEXT GENERATION KNOW THESE TRUTHS AND THAT'S WHY WE'RE DOING SOCIAL MEDIA, DOING FACEBOOK, AND WE ARE REACHING THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 14:50 AND I THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH US AND PARTNERING WITH US SO THAT WE CAN SEE ISRAEL SAVED AND WE CAN SEE THIS NEXT GENERATION HAVE THE REALITY OF THE TRUTH OF HIS WORD.
  • 15:02 YES, IT'S SO INCREDIBLE THAT LIKE YOU SAY, OUR BOYS... THEY'RE STUNNED AT HOW LITTLE IS BEING SHOWN THEM OF THESE TRUTHS AND WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY NOW TO EXPAND.
  • 15:13 WE'VE GONE INTO SOCIAL MEDIA, WE'RE ON FACEBOOK, WE'RE ON TWITTER, YOU CAN SEE US ON YOUTUBE.
  • 15:18 LEVITT.COM IS THE WAY THAT YOU CAN CONNECT WITH ALL THESE OTHER OUTREACHES AND KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING.
  • 15:24 YOU CAN GET THEM FOR FREE ON-LINE.
  • 15:27 THESE PROGRAMS ARE FREE FOR YOU ON-LINE SO WE REALLY ARE EXPANDING THIS MINISTRY AND WE WANT TO SEE IT GO EVEN FURTHER.
  • 15:34 WE WANT THE ENTIRE BODY TO AWAKEN BECAUSE REALLY THE BODY OF MESSIAH IN AMERICA IS AT A CRUCIAL TURNING POINT.
  • 15:41 ARE WE GOING TO STAND FOR THE NEXT GREAT AWAKENING WHICH HAS ISRAEL AND THE ONE NEW MAN AND THE JEWISHNESS OF THE GOSPEL AT IT'S HEART, OR WILL WE CONTINUE TO ALLOW SOMETHING ELSE, SOMETHING FROM BELOW, SOMETHING DEMONIC OR NEGATIVE MANDATE HOW WE LIVE OUR CHRISTIANITY?
  • 16:00 AND REALLY WE'RE IN THAT TIPPING POINT RIGHT NOW THAT WE'RE BEING WEIGHED IN THE BALANCES.
  • 16:05 SO AS WE GO FORWARD HERE WE WANT TO GO SHOW YOU SOME OF OUR STEWARDSHIP, THE WAY WE STEWARD YOUR FUNDS.
  • 16:12 MARK'S GOING TO GIVE US A TOUR OF THE ZOLA LEVITT OFFICES AND YOU'LL GET AN IDEA OF HOW WE MANAGE OUR FUNDS HERE AT THE MINISTRY.
  • 16:21 HI, MY NAME IS MARK LEVITT.

STUDY BOOKLETS... MUSIC CDS... STUDY CDS... LARGER BOOKS... ZOLA'S INTRODUCTION TO HEBREW... YOU KNOW ONE TIME HE ASKED ME, "HOW DID JOHN PARSONS (WHO REALLY AUTHORED THIS)...

  • 24:38 I OFTEN TELL MY WIFE AND MY CHILDREN THAT IN THE YEARS TO COME WE ONLY REGRET THAT WE DIDN'T PRAY MORE...GIVE MORE...GO MORE AND DO MORE TO SEE THIS REVELATION OF THE CENTRALITY OF ISRAEL AND THE HEBREW ROOTS OF THE FAITH BROUGHT TO THE BODY AND TO THE WORLD.
  • 24:53 BUT YOU NOT ONLY TOLD US THAT BUT WE'VE LIVED IT MYLES, WE'VE GIVEN OUT OF OUR OWN HEARTS AND OUT OF OUR OWN POCKET BOOKS TO SEE THE MESSAGE OF ISRAEL BE SHOWN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, TO HEAR...TO GO...TO SHARE... IT'S ALL ABOUT WHATGOD WANTS TO SAY.
  • 25:10 IT REALLY IS.
  • 25:11 I THINK IT'S THE CENTRAL PART AND UPCOMING AWAKENING.
  • 25:14 IT'S GOT TO INCLUDE THE OVERCOMING OF 17 HUNDRED PLUS YEARS OF REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY AND THE DISPLACEMENT OF THAT AND THE ENTRANCE OF A HEBREW ROOTS UNDERSTANDING.
  • 25:27 WE HAVE FRIENDS FOR WHOM THIS IS TOTALLY NEW THAT HAVE NEVER HEARD THESE THINGS BEFORE.
  • 25:32 AND IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE PART OF IT.
  • 25:33 YOU KNOW I THINK ABOUT THE WAY THESE SHOWS COME OUT... THE WAY THESE PROGRAMS COME FORWARD.
  • 25:38 WE PAY FOR THE AIRTIME.
  • 25:40 WE HAVE TO PAY TO SEE THEM ON THE AIR.
  • 25:42 RIGHT AND WE THANK YOU SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO DO THAT.
  • 25:46 WE KNOW MONEY CAN BE TIGHT RIGHT NOW BUT EVERY GIFT IS A BLESSING.
  • 25:52 EVERY GIFT HELPS GENESIS 12 SAYS THAT YOU WILL BE BLESSED WHEN YOU BLESS ISRAEL AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING.
  • 25:58 WE'RE BRINGING INFORMATION THAT BRINGS UNDERSTANDING THAT BRINGS PEOPLE INTO A RIGHT ALIGNMENT WITH GOD SO THAT THEY'RE BLESSED IN THIS WORLD AND IN THE ONE TO COME.
  • 26:08 SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.
  • 26:09 I THINK ABOUT OUR UPCOMING SERIES... "ACTS THEN AND NOW... THE STORY CONTINUES".
  • 26:14 WHEN YOU SEE THESE PROGRAMS YOU'RE GOING TO GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE GENESIS OF THE GOSPEL IN ACTS AND THE WAY IT'S GONE AROUND THE WORLD TO THE WEST AND IS ARISING WITH STRENGTH IN THE EAST AND IS ON ITS WAY BACK INTO JERUSALEM WHERE THE BODY IS WAVING A FLAG AT THE FINISH LINE WELCOMING THE GOSPEL BACK INTO JERUSALEM.
  • 26:35 AND THERE'S A VIBRANT, LIVING BODY RIGHT NOW IN ISRAEL.
  • 26:39 AND THAT'S NOT NEWS YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR ON CNN... THAT'S NOT SOMETHING YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA.
  • 26:45 ONE OF ZOLA'S SIGNATURE STYLES WAS TO REALLY DOWNPLAY THE NEED FOR FUNDS.
  • 26:50 HE REALLY KEPT IT TO A SENTENCE OR TWO, JUST A SHOW A YEAR TO DESCRIBE THE NEEDS BUT HE REALLY PLAYED IT DOWN AND I FEEL IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE GO AHEAD AND ASK THAT WE CAN PARTNER TOGETHER WITH OUR VIEWERS.
  • 27:04 AND SO AS WE GO TODAY WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR PARTNERING WITH US.
  • 27:09 WE BELIEVE THAT YOU LOVE WHAT GOD LOVES AND TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD BY BRINGING THE MESSAGE OF YESHUA AND THE TRUTH ABOUT ISRAEL OVER THESE AIRWAVES.
  • 27:20 SO TODAY AS WE GO REMEMBER, SHAL'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM.
  • 27:25 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
