  • 00:02 Announcer: THE FOLLOWING IS A PAID PROGRAM BY ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES.
  • 00:06 (♪ Music ♪)
  • 00:16 Narrator: BRETHREN,
  • 00:17 MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER
  • 00:19 TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT
  • 00:21 THEY MIGHT BE SAVED,
  • 00:23 FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE
  • 00:24 BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK
  • 00:27 FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL
  • 00:29 IS RICH UNTO ALL
  • 00:30 THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:43 Myles: SHALOM AND WELCOME TO
  • 00:44 ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 00:45 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 00:46 Katharine: AND I'M
  • 00:47 KATHARINE WEISS AND WE'RE
  • 00:48 SO BLESSED TO BRING YOU
  • 00:49 THESE YEAR-END PROGRAMS.
  • 00:50 Myles: WE'VE HAD A GREAT YEAR.
  • 00:51 WE WERE ABLE TO GO TO ISRAEL
  • 00:53 SEVERAL TIMES AND GO TO GREECE
  • 00:55 AND, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:56 THERE'S SUCH BAD PRESS ABOUT
  • 00:57 WHAT'S GOING ON IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:59 WELL, WE ALWAYS FIND IT TO BE
  • 01:00 THE CENTER OF GOD'S HEART
  • 01:02 AND A PEACEFUL,
  • 01:03 WONDERFUL PLACE TO VISIT.
  • 01:04 Katharine: IT'S THE APPLE
  • 01:05 OF GOD'S EYE; IT'S THE DESIRE
  • 01:07 OF ALL NATIONS AND WE LOVE
  • 01:09 TO BRING YOU THESE PROGRAMS
  • 01:11 FROM THE SCRIPTURES,
  • 01:13 FROM THE BIBLE IN THE HOLY LAND
  • 01:15 RIGHT TO YOUR OWN ROOMS,
  • 01:17 OWN BEDROOMS, OWN HOMES,
  • 01:19 AND WE CAN ONLY DO THAT
  • 01:20 BY YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT
  • 01:22 WHETHER BIG OR SMALL.
  • 01:23 WHATEVER IT IS, WE THANK YOU
  • 01:25 FOR YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS.
  • 01:26 WE THANK YOU FOR STANDING
  • 01:27 WITH US, WE THANK YOU
  • 01:29 FOR PRAYING FOR THE PEACE
  • 01:30 OF JERUSALEM AND WE THANK YOU
  • 01:31 FOR HAVING A HEART
  • 01:33 FOR GOD'S HEART FOR THIS PLACE,
  • 01:35 THIS LAND, HIS HOLY LAND.
  • 01:37 Myles: NOW THIS FIRST SEGMENT
  • 01:39 WE'RE GOING TO BRING YOU IS WHEN
  • 01:40 WE LANDED IN GREECE LAST YEAR
  • 01:42 AMAZINGLY, EXACTLY WHEN THERE
  • 01:44 WAS RIOTING AND UNREST THERE.
  • 01:46 ISRAEL WAS AT PEACE, BUT GREECE
  • 01:48 WAS FALLING ECONOMICALLY
  • 01:49 AND WE WERE THERE
  • 01:51 EXACTLY AS IT HAPPENED.
  • 01:52 SO WE MADE A PROGRAM ON SITE
  • 01:54 CALLED "THE KINGS OF THE EARTH
  • 01:55 LOOK UP."
  • 01:56 SO LET'S GO TO OUR CAMERA CREW
  • 01:58 ON SITE IN GREECE.
  • 02:01 ( Crowd Chanting Angrily )
  • 02:20 >> IF WE ARE GATHERED
  • 02:21 ALL TOGETHER.
  • 02:27 ...TO RESIST AGAIN...
  • 02:33 >> WE NEED
  • 02:35 MORE RADICAL GOVERNMENT,
  • 02:36 RADICAL MEASURE SHOULD BE TAKEN.
  • 02:38 >> WE WANT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING,
  • 02:40 THE POLITICAL SYSTEM HERE.
  • 02:50 >> PEOPLE WITH DREAMS
  • 02:51 ARE MISSING HERE.
  • 02:55 >> YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
  • 02:57 HERE THE ONLY THING IS MONEY
  • 02:58 THAT COUNTS.
  • 03:01 FIRST OF ALL, VISIONARIES.
  • 03:05 Myles: WE'RE HERE IN ATHENS,
  • 03:06 GREECE, WHERE THE HEADLINES
  • 03:08 ARE CATCHING UP TO THE BIBLE.
  • 03:10 EVERYTHING THAT'S WRITTEN
  • 03:11 IN THIS BOOK IS GOING TO COME
  • 03:12 TO PASS; THE PROPHETIC WORD
  • 03:15 WILL BE FULFILLED AND RIGHT NOW
  • 03:17 THERE'S A WAR BETWEEN THE WORLDS
  • 03:19 TAKING PLACE.
  • 03:20 THERE IS A WAR IN THE HEAVENLIES
  • 03:22 BEHIND THE SCENES;
  • 03:23 A WAR BETWEEN THE SONS OF LIGHT
  • 03:26 AND THE SONS OF DARKNESS.
  • 03:27 THERE IS A WAR THAT GOD
  • 03:28 HAS PROPHESIED WOULD HAPPEN
  • 03:30 IN ZECHARIAH 9, THAT THE SONS
  • 03:32 OF ZION AND THE SONS OF GREECE
  • 03:34 WOULD BE AT WAR TOGETHER.
  • 03:36 IT IS NOT A WAR OF FLESH
  • 03:37 AND BLOOD, AND YET IT IS A WAR
  • 03:39 OF IDEAS AND HEARTFELT SINCERITY
  • 03:44 WITH WHERE PEOPLE
  • 03:46 ARE GOING TO PUT THEIR LOVE.
  • 03:48 WILL THEY LOVE GOD OR WILL THEY
  • 03:49 LOVE THE "ISMS" OF THE WORLD?
  • 03:51 AND RIGHT NOW THE "ISMS,"
  • 03:53 THE FACTIONS OF THE WORLD,
  • 03:55 THE PERPLEXITY OF NATIONS,
  • 03:56 IS COMING TO PASS
  • 03:57 BEFORE OUR VERY EYES.
  • 04:02 >> WE HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS,
  • 04:04 AND THE SITUATION IS VERY BAD.
  • 04:11 ...EVERY DAY.
  • 04:17 ...FROM SOMEWHERE.
  • 04:20 I DON'T KNOW FROM WHERE.
  • 04:26 OKAY, AND HE CAN FIX THIS,
  • 04:29 IT'S OKAY.
  • 04:31 Myles: SUPERMAN?
  • 04:32 >> YES, WE NEED A SUPERMAN.
  • 04:35 Myles: IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBT
  • 04:37 ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY
  • 04:39 OF AN ANTICHRIST,
  • 04:41 OF A MAN OF SIN,
  • 04:43 A MAN OF LAWLESSNESS BEING ABLE
  • 04:44 TO STEP ONTO THE WORLD STAGE,
  • 04:47 LOOK BEHIND ME AND YOU'LL KNOW
  • 04:49 THAT IN THE TUMULT AND CONFUSION
  • 04:51 OF THIS WORLD WE ARE WAITING FOR
  • 04:53 AND PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR
  • 04:55 A WORLD-WIDE PROBLEM SOLVER.
  • 05:07 I'LL NEVER FORGET BEING
  • 05:08 IN ATHENS DURING THAT TIME.
  • 05:09 YOU KNOW, IT WAS CHILLING
  • 05:10 TO HEAR A LADY ON THE STREET
  • 05:12 ACTUALLY ASK FOR A SUPERMAN TO
  • 05:14 COME AND SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS;
  • 05:16 REALLY ASKING FOR THE ANTICHRIST
  • 05:17 TO APPEAR ON THE SCENE.
  • 05:19 Katharine: YEAH WE'RE IN A TIME
  • 05:20 OF SHAKING AND WE'RE IN A TIME
  • 05:22 OF UNREST, BUT BECAUSE WE'RE
  • 05:23 BELIEVERS, WE DON'T HAVE TO PUT
  • 05:25 OUR TRUST IN THIS REALM, BUT WE
  • 05:27 LOOK TO AND WE RELY ON GOD
  • 05:29 AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT WE PUT
  • 05:31 OUR MONEY WHERE IT'S GOING TO BE
  • 05:33 COUNTED FOR AS A PLACE OF
  • 05:35 RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THAT'S NOT
  • 05:37 ONLY IN THE KINGDOM, BUT IT'S
  • 05:38 ALSO IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 05:40 SO WHEN YOU SOW A SEED AND WHEN
  • 05:41 YOU GIVE A GIFT, WE'RE STANDING
  • 05:43 WITH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 05:45 WE'RE STANDING WITH
  • 05:46 THE LONE SOLDIER PROGRAM,
  • 05:48 WE'RE STANDING WITH
  • 05:49 BENEVOLENT FUNDS HERE IN ISRAEL,
  • 05:50 THAT NOT ONLY SUPPORT
  • 05:52 THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY
  • 05:55 THAT GOD HAS FOR THESE PEOPLE,
  • 05:56 BUT THE PRACTICAL WAYS
  • 05:58 THAT WE CAN MEET THE NEEDS
  • 05:59 OF LONE SOLDIERS, LIKE SOCKS,
  • 06:02 AND A BREAK
  • 06:04 EVERY ONCE AND A WHILE.
  • 06:05 Myles: THE NEEDS OF THESE KIDS
  • 06:06 THAT ARE SERVING IN THE IDF
  • 06:07 THAT THEY MAY NOT HAVE A MOM
  • 06:08 OR A DAD ON THE SCENE
  • 06:10 AND THEY'VE COME TO SERVE
  • 06:11 THIS LAND, AND WE,
  • 06:12 THROUGH OUR BENEVOLENCE FUNDS,
  • 06:14 ARE ABLE TO STAND WITH THEM.
  • 06:15 YOU KNOW, YEARS AGO, ZOLA LEVITT
  • 06:17 MADE A GREAT PROGRAM, A SERIES
  • 06:20 ON THE HOLY DAYS OF OUR LORD.
  • 06:21 IT WAS SO GOOD,
  • 06:22 SO MEANINGFUL, WE THOUGHT IT
  • 06:24 WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA FOR US
  • 06:25 TO REMIX IT AND BRING IT TO YOU
  • 06:27 IN AN UPDATED FASHION.
  • 06:28 SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK
  • 06:29 AT THAT SERIES RIGHT NOW.
  • 06:32 >> IT IS WRITTEN
  • 06:33 IN THE SCRIPTURES
  • 06:34 THAT WE SHOULD JOURNEY
  • 06:35 TO JERUSALEM THREE TIMES A YEAR.
  • 06:38 WE ARE GOING UP
  • 06:39 TO THE CITY OF GOD,
  • 06:41 TO JERUSALEM, TO CELEBRATE.
  • 06:48 Zola: THE LORD TOLD
  • 06:49 THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO
  • 06:50 HONOR SEVEN HOLY CELEBRATIONS
  • 06:51 EACH YEAR, INVOLVING
  • 06:53 THREE JOURNEYS TO JERUSALEM.
  • 06:55 EACH FESTIVAL WOULD BE
  • 06:57 UNIQUELY FULFILLED
  • 06:58 IN THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 07:06 ...SHADOWS OF THINGS TO COME.
  • 07:15 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 07:16 WE'RE IN THE KIDRON VALLEY
  • 07:17 IN JERUSALEM, JUST DOWN THE HILL
  • 07:19 FROM THE TEMPLE SITE.
  • 07:20 BEHIND ME YOU CAN SEE THE WALL
  • 07:22 HERE ON THE EASTERN SIDE
  • 07:23 AND, OF COURSE, THE EAST GATE
  • 07:25 WHERE IN THE SECOND COMING,
  • 07:27 ALL OF US WILL GO THROUGH
  • 07:28 THE GATE WITH THE COMING KING,
  • 07:31 THE LORD JESUS, WHEN HE RETURNS.
  • 07:33 NOW, THE PEOPLE WENT
  • 07:34 THROUGH THIS GATE
  • 07:35 FOR MANY, MANY CENTURIES,
  • 07:37 AND OUT IN THE WILDERNESS,
  • 07:38 THEY WENT THROUGH A GATE ON
  • 07:39 THE EAST SIDE OF THE TABERNACLE,
  • 07:41 ALWAYS ON THE EAST, TO KEEP
  • 07:42 THEIR BACK TO THE SUN WHICH
  • 07:44 IS OUT THIS WAY, OF COURSE,
  • 07:45 WE'RE HERE IN THE MORNING.
  • 07:47 AND THEY DID NOT WANT TO COPY
  • 07:48 THE EGYPTIAN SUN WORSHIP,
  • 07:50 SO THEY TURNED THEIR BACKS
  • 07:51 TO THE SUN AND WENT IN
  • 07:52 TO DEAL WITH GOD.
  • 07:53 AND IN DEALING WITH GOD,
  • 07:55 THEY CELEBRATED FEASTS
  • 07:57 AND THESE FEASTS ARE THE WORLD'S
  • 07:59 OLDEST FEASTS BY A LONG SHOT;
  • 08:02 3500 YEARS AGO, GOD GAVE MOSES
  • 08:06 ON MOUNT SINAI THE INSTRUCTIONS
  • 08:07 FOR THESE OBSERVANCES.
  • 08:09 THERE'S NO OTHER SOCIETY
  • 08:11 THAT'S ANY COMPETITION
  • 08:12 WITH THE AGE OF THESE FEASTS.
  • 08:13 THE OLDEST I CAN THINK OF
  • 08:14 OFFHAND THAT ARE STILL KEEPING
  • 08:16 THE SAME FEASTS THAT THEY
  • 08:17 STARTED AT THE BEGINNING
  • 08:19 OR THE SAME WORSHIP STYLE,
  • 08:20 THE SAME GOD, THE SAME LANGUAGE,
  • 08:22 ARE THE MUSLIMS
  • 08:23 AND THAT'S ONLY 13 CENTURIES.
  • 08:25 SO, REALLY, WE HAVE--
  • 08:27 WELL, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 08:29 WHAT WE CALL "ANCIENT ROME"
  • 08:30 IS HALFWAY BACK
  • 08:31 TO THE FIRST PASSOVER,
  • 08:33 SO THESE ARE OLD INDEED.

  • 09:10 WELL, THIS IS THE FAMOUS VIEW
  • 09:11 OF JERUSALEM.
  • 09:12 WE'RE VERY NEAR THE SUMMIT
  • 09:13 OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 09:15 THE ROAD THE LORD
  • 09:16 RODE THE DONKEY ON
  • 09:17 IS JUST TEN YARDS TO MY LEFT,
  • 09:19 AND IN THE SECOND COMING,
  • 09:21 HE WILL TRAVEL PRESUMABLY
  • 09:22 THE SAME ROAD.
  • 09:23 THIS IS THE ANCIENT ROAD
  • 09:24 DOWN THE MOUNT.
  • 09:25 IT'S BEEN REDONE
  • 09:26 AND WALLS PUT UP AND SO ON,
  • 09:27 BUT, BASICALLY, THAT'S THE WAY,
  • 09:29 FROM THE SUMMIT
  • 09:30 OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
  • 09:31 TO THE EASTERN GATE BEHIND ME.
  • 09:32 YOU CAN SEE THE GOLD DOME
  • 09:33 OF THE ROCK, THE MUSLIM SHRINE,
  • 09:35 AND THE EAST GATE IN THE WALL
  • 09:37 WHERE WE WILL ENTER IN
  • 09:38 THE SECOND COMING OF THE LORD.
  • 09:41 WE'RE GOING TO TALK HERE
  • 09:42 ABOUT THE DAY OF ATONEMENT.
  • 09:44 THIS IS ONE OF THE HARDEST LAWS
  • 09:45 IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 09:47 IT WAS THE DAY THE HIGH PRIEST
  • 09:49 ENTERED THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 09:51 TO MAKE AN ATONEMENT FOR HIMSELF
  • 09:53 AND FOR THE SINS
  • 09:54 OF ALL NATIONAL ISRAEL.
  • 09:56 WE FIND IT IN LEVITICUS 23:27:

  • 11:11 HOW IRONIC IT IS THAT THE ARABS,
  • 11:15 THE MUSLIMS, ENEMIES OF ISRAEL,
  • 11:17 NO QUESTION,
  • 11:18 HAVE BUILT A SHRINE,
  • 11:19 THE GOLDEN DOME BEHIND ME,
  • 11:22 AND PUT IT ON THE SITE
  • 11:23 OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE
  • 11:24 TO KEEP THE JEWISH TEMPLE
  • 11:25 FROM EVER BEING REBUILT.
  • 11:26 I BELIEVE THAT'S THE IDEA.
  • 11:28 AND THEY END UP CALLING IT
  • 11:30 THE DOME OF THE ROCK
  • 11:32 AND INSIDE IS A BIG ROCK,
  • 11:33 FOR ALL I KNOW,
  • 11:34 THE SAME FOUNDATION STONE.
  • 11:36 BUT ANYWAY IT'S AROUND A STONE
  • 11:38 AS IF GOD WOULD NOT GIVE UP
  • 11:40 THE IDEA OF THAT STONE
  • 11:41 ON THAT SITE,
  • 11:42 NO MATTER WHO BUILT THE TEMPLE.
  • 11:44 AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DID.
  • 11:45 ROMANS BUILT A TEMPLE.
  • 11:47 CRUSADERS STUCK A CROSS
  • 11:48 ON THE TEMPLE.
  • 11:49 AS I OFTEN POINT OUT, THERE
  • 11:50 WAS A TIME WHEN THERE WAS
  • 11:52 A CHRISTIAN CROSS
  • 11:53 ON A MUSLIM DOME
  • 11:54 ON ROMAN PILLARS ON JEWISH LAND,
  • 11:56 ALL ON THAT SITE
  • 11:57 WHERE YOU SEE THE DOME.
  • 11:59 BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 12:00 THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN A ROCK
  • 12:01 THERE, THAT FOUNDATION STONE.
  • 12:04 FINALLY, PAUL POINTS OUT
  • 12:06 IN ROMANS 9:33:
  • 12:18 AS IN OUR TIME, EVEN THOUGH
  • 12:20 PEOPLE HERE ARE NOT BASICALLY
  • 12:21 BELIEVING IN THE LORD,
  • 12:23 HE IS THERE AND THEY STUMBLE
  • 12:24 OVER HIM ALL THE TIME.

  • 13:42 TO ISRAEL AND WE BRING YOU THESE
  • 13:43 PROGRAMS FROM ISRAEL AND GREECE
  • 13:45 AND FROM AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 13:46 IT'S PRETTY INCREDIBLE THAT
  • 13:48 WHEN WE TAKE PEOPLE TO ISRAEL,
  • 13:49 I ALWAYS REMIND THEM
  • 13:50 THAT THEY'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 13:51 THE ANCIENT ROCKS,
  • 13:52 BUT THEY'RE ALSO GOING TO MEET
  • 13:54 THE LIVING STONES.
  • 13:55 WHAT DO I MEAN BY THAT?
  • 13:56 THE BODY OF MESSIAH,
  • 13:58 THE BELIEVERS IN THE LAND
  • 13:59 THAT ARE PREACHING THE GOSPEL
  • 14:01 AND SHARING THEIR FAITH
  • 14:02 AND REACHING FORTH,
  • 14:03 BRINGING THE GOOD NEWS
  • 14:05 TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 14:06 IT'S NOT CONVERTING FROM JUDAISM
  • 14:08 BUT IT'S FINDING THE MESSIAH
  • 14:10 WHO IS THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL,
  • 14:12 AND WE'RE ABLE TO CONNECT
  • 14:13 WITH THOSE PEOPLE; IN FACT,
  • 14:14 WE DID ONE SERIES THIS YEAR
  • 14:16 CALLED "ACTS, THEN AND NOW,
  • 14:18 THE STORY CONTINUES."
  • 14:19 Katharine: IT'S SO EXCITING
  • 14:20 TO BE ABLE TO SHOWCASE
  • 14:22 SOME OF OUR DEAR FRIENDS
  • 14:23 IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL LIVING OUT
  • 14:25 THE FAITH OF THEIR FATHER,
  • 14:27 THE FATHER OF FAITH, ABRAHAM.
  • 14:29 YOU KNOW,
  • 14:30 THE "ACTS, THEN AND NOW"
  • 14:31 IS TELLING THE STORY THAT GOD
  • 14:33 IS CONTINUALLY ON THE MOVE.
  • 14:35 THERE ARE MORE JEWS
  • 14:36 COMING TO FAITH TODAY
  • 14:37 THAN IN THE BOOK OF ACTS,
  • 14:39 AND THAT'S WHAT WE EMPHASIZE
  • 14:40 IN THIS SERIES.
  • 14:41 AND WE'RE SO HAPPY
  • 14:42 TO BE ABLE TO BRING THEM TO YOU.
  • 14:43 MYLES, IT WAS A JOY FOR US.
  • 14:45 Myles: IT REALLY WAS
  • 14:46 BECAUSE WE'VE LABORED ALONGSIDE
  • 14:47 THESE FOLKS FOR SO MANY YEARS,
  • 14:48 AND ONE OF THE GREAT ASPECTS
  • 14:50 OF IT WAS REALLY SHOWING
  • 14:51 THE REALITY OF THE "ONE NEW MAN"
  • 14:53 OF EPHESIANS 2:14 AND FOLLOWING,
  • 14:55 BY WHICH I MEAN
  • 14:56 THAT WE'VE SHOWCASED
  • 14:57 NOT ONLY THE JEWISH BELIEVERS,
  • 14:59 BUT ALSO THE ARAB BELIEVERS.
  • 15:01 WE BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER
  • 15:02 AND IN THAT SERIES
  • 15:03 WE WERE ABLE TO SHOW YOU
  • 15:05 SOME OF THE ARAB CHRISTIANS
  • 15:07 THAT ARE STANDING FOR GOD
  • 15:08 IN SOME PLACES
  • 15:09 WHERE IT'S VERY DIFFICULT,
  • 15:10 AS WELL AS THE JEWISH BELIEVERS
  • 15:12 STANDING FOR GOD,
  • 15:13 AND SHOWING YOU THEM TOGETHER,
  • 15:14 SO YOU CAN RECOGNIZE
  • 15:16 THAT GOD HAS BROKEN DOWN
  • 15:17 THE MIDDLE WALL OF PARTITION
  • 15:19 AND MADE THE TWO ONE.
  • 15:20 IT'S REALLY
  • 15:21 ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SERIES.
  • 15:23 SO LET'S SHOW YOU
  • 15:25 A SEGMENT OF THAT RIGHT NOW.

  • 16:08 IT'S INTERESTING,
  • 16:09 AS A YOUNG JEWISH MAN,
  • 16:10 GREW UP IN A SYNAGOGUE
  • 16:12 AND DID WELL IN MY STUDIES,
  • 16:15 WAS ACCEPTED TO HARVARD.
  • 16:17 AND WHEN I GOT THERE,
  • 16:18 LIKE AS MANY YOUNG PEOPLE DID,
  • 16:19 I BEGAN TO SEARCH FOR TRUTH
  • 16:21 AND BEGAN TO STUDY PHILOSOPHY,
  • 16:23 ANCIENT LITERATURES,
  • 16:25 COMPARATIVE RELIGIONS
  • 16:26 AT HARVARD, AND I NEVER FELT
  • 16:29 THAT I FOUND SOMETHING.
  • 16:31 AND I REMEMBER I WAS STANDING
  • 16:32 THERE, READY TO GET MY DEGREE
  • 16:34 AFTER FOUR YEARS,
  • 16:35 VERY FORMAL CEREMONY,
  • 16:36 MY PARENTS IN THE AUDIENCE,
  • 16:38 WITH THE CAP AND GOWN ON,
  • 16:40 AND I WAS STANDING IN LINE AND
  • 16:42 I HAD THIS MOMENT OF REPENTANCE.
  • 16:44 I THOUGHT, "WHAT DID I DO
  • 16:45 WITH ALL THIS TIME
  • 16:46 AND ALL THIS MONEY?"
  • 16:48 AND I DIDN'T REALLY BELIEVE IN
  • 16:49 GOD AT THAT TIME, BUT I SORT OF
  • 16:50 LOOKED UP IN THE AIR AND SAID,
  • 16:52 "GOD, IF YOU'RE THERE,
  • 16:53 I JUST REPENT THAT I SPENT
  • 16:55 ALL MY PARENT'S MONEY
  • 16:56 AND SPENT ALL THIS TIME.
  • 16:58 AND I ONLY LEARNED ONE THING:
  • 17:00 THAT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE
  • 17:01 I'LL NEVER THINK JUST BECAUSE
  • 17:02 SOMEONE IS A PROFESSOR
  • 17:03 OR A DOCTOR OR HAS SOME TITLE,
  • 17:06 THAT HE REALLY KNOWS ANYTHING
  • 17:07 ABOUT THE MEANING OF LIFE."
  • 17:08 Myles: GOOD.
  • 17:09 Asher: AND WHEN I SAID THAT,
  • 17:10 IT WAS FUNNY,
  • 17:11 I HEARD A VOICE ON THE INSIDE.
  • 17:13 IT SAID TO ME, "FOR THE PLAN
  • 17:15 THAT I HAVE FOR YOUR LIFE,
  • 17:17 ALL THAT TIME AND ALL THAT MONEY
  • 17:19 WAS WORTH IT FOR YOU TO LEARN
  • 17:21 JUST THAT ONE THING."
  • 17:23 I HAD NO IDEA WHAT THAT WAS.
  • 17:25 I STILL DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 17:27 SEVERAL YEARS LATER,
  • 17:28 WHEN I CAME TO THE LORD
  • 17:29 AND I RECOGNIZED HIS VOICE,
  • 17:31 I SAID, "AH,
  • 17:32 THAT WAS YOU THAT TALKED TO ME."
  • 17:33 AND I UNDERSTOOD THAT THAT WAS
  • 17:34 THE FIRST TIME THAT THE LORD
  • 17:35 TOUCHED ME AND BEGAN TO CALL ME
  • 17:37 FOR HIS KINGDOM.
  • 17:38 ♪ ♪
  • 17:45 Myles: YERUSHALAYIM, JERUSALEM,
  • 17:47 THE CENTER OF THE EARTH,
  • 17:49 THE PLACE WHERE HISTORY
  • 17:50 TAKES PLACE AND WHERE HISTORY
  • 17:53 WILL BE UNFOLDING IN THE FUTURE.
  • 17:55 I'M ON THE SOUTHERN STEPS
  • 17:57 OF THE TEMPLE,
  • 17:58 THE SECOND TEMPLE
  • 17:59 AT THE TIME OF YESHUA, AND IT
  • 18:02 WAS THE WONDER OF THE WORLD.
  • 18:03 THERE WAS NOTHING LIKE IT.
  • 18:05 AND HERE, ON THE SOUTHERN STEPS,
  • 18:06 WAS WHERE THE PILGRIMS
  • 18:08 WOULD ENTER AND EXIT
  • 18:10 THREE TIMES A YEAR,
  • 18:11 AS MANDATED BY LEVITICUS 23.
  • 18:15 BEHIND ME
  • 18:16 IS THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 18:17 YESHUA'S JERUSALEM HOME BASE AND
  • 18:20 WHERE HE WILL BE RETURNING TO.
  • 18:23 Yuval Shemesh: THE CAVE WE SEE
  • 18:24 RIGHT BEHIND ME WAS THE DOORWAY,
  • 18:28 ONE OF THE DOORWAYS THAT LED
  • 18:29 TO HADES, TO THE UNDERWORLD.
  • 18:34 THE GREEK PEOPLE, THEY BELIEVED
  • 18:37 THAT ALL MEN, ALL PEOPLE
  • 18:39 ARE GOING TO ONE PLACE,
  • 18:40 THEY ARE GOING TO THE UNDERWORLD
  • 18:41 AFTER THEIR DEATH.
  • 18:43 SO WHEN THEY BURY THEIR DEAD,
  • 18:44 THEY USED TO PUT COINS
  • 18:45 ON THEIR EYES AND IN THEIR MOUTH
  • 18:48 AND THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 18:50 THE FEE THAT THEY HAD TO PAY
  • 18:52 FOR THE FERRYMAN
  • 18:53 WHO WOULD TAKE THEM WITH A BOAT
  • 18:55 ACROSS THE RIVER STYX
  • 18:58 TO THE UNDERWORLD.
  • 18:59 SO ONLY THEIR GODS
  • 19:00 OR THEIR IDOLS HAD ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 19:04 NOT THE PEOPLE,
  • 19:06 ALL PEOPLE WENT TO ONE PLACE,
  • 19:08 TO HADES.
  • 19:10 SO WE ARE LOOKING IN A WAY
  • 19:11 AT THE DOORWAYS OR THE GATES,
  • 19:13 ONE OF THE DOORWAYS
  • 19:14 THAT LEAD TO HELL, TO HADES.
  • 19:17 AND IN THEIR MINDSET,
  • 19:18 THE HIGH MOUNTAIN NEARBY,
  • 19:20 WE'RE NOW AT THE BASE
  • 19:21 OF MT. HERMON,
  • 19:22 THE HIGH MOUNTAIN WAS THE PLACE
  • 19:24 WHERE THEIR GODS WERE LIVING,
  • 19:26 AS IT WAS IN GREECE
  • 19:28 AND THE OLYMPUS.
  • 19:29 AND THE GODS HAVE ETERNAL LIFE,
  • 19:31 THEY LIVE UPON HIGH MOUNTAINS,
  • 19:32 BUT THE PEOPLE, THEY ALL GO
  • 19:33 TO ONE PLACE, TO HADES.
  • 19:36 SO JESUS CAME HERE TO SHOW
  • 19:39 AND TO ASK THE QUESTION
  • 19:40 "WHO DO MEN SAY THAT I AM?"
  • 19:42 IN THIS PAGAN CENTER,
  • 19:43 WORSHIP CENTER,
  • 19:45 IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY.
  • 19:47 IT IS PROBABLY ALSO THE REASON
  • 19:50 WHY HE ALSO TOOK PETER, JAMES
  • 19:54 AND JOHN TO THE HIGH MOUNTAIN,
  • 19:56 ACTUALLY, IT MEANS FROM
  • 19:57 MT. HERMON, AND WAS TRANSFIGURED
  • 20:00 BEFORE THEIR EYES TO SHOW
  • 20:01 THAT HE WAS THE TRUE WAY,
  • 20:03 THE TRUE GOD,
  • 20:04 AND ALL THOSE FALSE IDOLS
  • 20:05 THAT PEOPLE BACK THEN
  • 20:06 USED TO WORSHIP RIGHT HERE.

  • 22:27 IT REALLY DOES SHOW WHAT GOD
  • 22:28 IS DOING IN THE LAND TODAY.
  • 22:30 WE TELL OUR TOUR GOERS,
  • 22:31 WHEN YOU GET HOME,
  • 22:32 GET THIS SERIES AND REVIEW
  • 22:34 ALL THE PLACES YOU'VE SEEN,
  • 22:35 AND LET GOD REMIND YOU
  • 22:37 OF HOW THE SCRIPTURE'S
  • 22:38 COMING ALIVE TODAY.
  • 22:39 Katharine: YEAH, WE OVERCOME
  • 22:40 THE ENEMY THROUGH THE BLOOD
  • 22:41 OF THE LAMB, THE WORD
  • 22:42 OF OUR TESTIMONY AND LOVING NOT
  • 22:43 OUR LIFE UNTO DEATH, AND THAT'S
  • 22:45 WHAT WE SEE IN THIS ACTS SERIES.
  • 22:47 WE ALSO ARE GRATEFUL TO BE ABLE
  • 22:49 TO BRING YOU HIGHLIGHTS
  • 22:50 FROM RICK WIENECKE'S PROGRAM
  • 22:52 ON "THE FOUNTAIN OF TEARS."
  • 22:54 Myles: RICK IS A SCULPTOR IN
  • 22:56 THE DESERT SOUTH OF JERUSALEM,
  • 22:59 AND HE'S PUT TOGETHER
  • 23:00 TWO OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE PARTS
  • 23:03 OF LIFE ON PLANET EARTH AND
  • 23:04 ESPECIALLY TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE:
  • 23:06 THE HOLOCAUST IN EUROPE,
  • 23:07 AND THE CRUCIFIXION OF YESHUA.
  • 23:10 AND IN THIS SCULPTURE THAT HE'S
  • 23:11 MADE, "THE FOUNTAIN OF TEARS,"
  • 23:14 WE REALLY SEE THE HEART OF GOD
  • 23:16 REACHING FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 23:18 SO LET'S GO TO OUR PROGRAM
  • 23:19 WITH RICK WIENECKE,
  • 23:21 "THE FOUNTAIN OF TEARS,
  • 23:22 BEAUTY FROM ASHES."
  • 23:26 Rick Wienecke: THIS FINAL PIECE,
  • 23:28 WE CALL IT "A RESURRECTION
  • 23:30 OF RELATIONSHIP."
  • 23:32 IT'S THE TWO PARTS
  • 23:33 OF THE FOUNTAIN,
  • 23:34 THE TWO PARTS OF THIS DIALOGUE
  • 23:35 OF SUFFERING, COMING TOGETHER
  • 23:38 WITHIN AN EMBRACE.
  • 23:40 BOTH OF THE FIGURES ARE COMING
  • 23:42 OUT OF THE STONES THAT REPRESENT
  • 23:44 THE PERISHED AND COMING INTO
  • 23:46 A PLACE WHERE THEY FINALLY
  • 23:48 RECOGNIZE EACH OTHER.
  • 23:51 BOTH OF THEM WITHIN THIS STANCE,
  • 23:53 OVER THEM IS RAISED
  • 23:55 THE CUP OF SUFFERING.
  • 23:57 THE CUP OF SUFFERING
  • 23:58 IS NOW EMPTY.
  • 23:59 IT'S BEEN DRUNK.
  • 24:01 BOTH OF THEM CAN IDENTIFY
  • 24:03 TO THIS PLACE OF SUFFERING,
  • 24:05 AND SOMEHOW, WITHIN THIS WOUND,
  • 24:08 BOTH OF THEM RECOGNIZE
  • 24:09 EACH OTHER.
  • 24:11 THERE'S THE SEVEN
  • 24:12 CRUCIFIXION PANELS,
  • 24:14 EACH ONE OF THEM BEING
  • 24:15 ONE OF THE SEVEN LAST WORDS.
  • 24:17 BUT A DIVIDER
  • 24:18 BETWEEN EACH ONE OF THE PANELS
  • 24:21 IS SIX PILLARS OF STONE.
  • 24:23 THE SIX PILLARS OF STONE
  • 24:25 REPRESENT A MEMORIAL
  • 24:26 TO THE 6 MILLION.
  • 24:28 WHAT YOU SEE
  • 24:29 OVER THE SURFACE OF THE STONES
  • 24:32 IS WATER GOING OVER THE SURFACE
  • 24:34 REALLY SLOWLY BECAUSE WE WANTED
  • 24:37 THE SENSE OF TEARS WITHIN THIS.
  • 24:40 BECAUSE ONE OF THE MAIN WORDS
  • 24:42 THAT WE GOT IN THE BEGINNING
  • 24:43 WAS OUT OF JEREMIAH,
  • 24:45 WHERE HE'S CRYING OUT
  • 24:47 AND HE'S SAYING:
  • 24:57 THE SENSE WITHIN THE TEARS
  • 24:59 THEN GOES DOWN TO THE BOTTOM
  • 25:01 OF THE PILLARS.
  • 25:02 THE WATER IS DRAINED
  • 25:04 AND IS CARRIED UNDERGROUND
  • 25:05 JUST OUTSIDE OF THE COURTYARD
  • 25:08 THAT REPRESENTS THE TEARS
  • 25:10 GOING OUT,
  • 25:11 THIS WHOLE EXPRESSION.
  • 25:12 BUT WHAT WE'VE DONE IS
  • 25:13 WE PLANTED SIX OLIVE TREES
  • 25:16 ON THE OUTSIDE THAT REPRESENT
  • 25:18 THE PLACE OF REDEMPTION,
  • 25:20 THE PLACE OF GOD
  • 25:21 WANTING TO PAY BACK
  • 25:24 WHAT WAS TAKEN FROM THEM.
  • 25:27 Katharine: WE CAN'T
  • 25:28 LET THE WORLD FORGET ABOUT
  • 25:30 WHAT HAPPENED IN THE HOLOCAUST,
  • 25:32 NOR SHOULD WE FORGET
  • 25:33 WHAT'S HAPPENING TODAY,
  • 25:35 AND NOR SHOULD WE NEGLECT TO SEE
  • 25:38 THAT AHMADINEJAD IS THREATENING
  • 25:40 TO WIPE THE JEWS OFF THE PLANET.
  • 25:43 THIS IS A VERY REAL THREAT
  • 25:44 TODAY, MYLES.
  • 25:45 Myles: YEAH, IT REALLY IS
  • 25:46 AND WE'RE SO BLESSED TO BE ABLE
  • 25:47 TO BRING YOU THESE PROGRAMS.
  • 25:49 BECAUSE OF YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS,
  • 25:51 WE CAN BRING YOU THESE PROGRAMS
  • 25:52 THAT REALLY TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT
  • 25:54 WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE WORLD,
  • 25:55 ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON IN ISRAEL,
  • 25:56 THE INCREDIBLE BLESSING
  • 25:58 THAT ISRAEL IS TO THE WORLD.
  • 25:59 IT'S SO FRUSTRATING TO SEE
  • 26:01 THE DISINFORMATION AND THE
  • 26:03 DEMONIZATION THAT COMES AGAINST
  • 26:05 THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL,
  • 26:06 AND WE HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY,
  • 26:08 BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,
  • 26:09 TO BRING YOU THE TRUTH; AND
  • 26:10 WE NEED TO DO IT IN THESE DAYS,
  • 26:12 BECAUSE AHMADINEJAD
  • 26:13 STANDS ON THE WORLD STAGE
  • 26:14 AND SAYS HE WANTS TO WIPE US
  • 26:16 OFF THE MAP.
  • 26:17 Katharine: IT'S SO IMPORTANT
  • 26:18 THAT AS CHRISTIANS
  • 26:19 AND AS BELIEVERS,
  • 26:20 WE STAND ON THE BIBLE
  • 26:22 AND WE STAND ON GOD'S WORD
  • 26:24 AND WHAT HIS PLAN IS
  • 26:25 FOR THESE LAST DAYS
  • 26:26 THAT WE'RE LIVING IN.
  • 26:27 WE'RE LIVING IN A TIME
  • 26:28 OF SHAKING, BUT WE CAN
  • 26:30 STAND TRUE AND STAND FIRM
  • 26:32 UPON THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 26:33 AND GIVE TO THOSE THINGS
  • 26:34 THAT PROMOTE THE KINGDOM,
  • 26:36 PROMOTE LIFE AND SPEAK LIFE
  • 26:38 TO THE WORLD.
  • 26:39 Myles: IT'S A TIME
  • 26:40 OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE.
  • 26:41 THERE'S WARFARE
  • 26:42 IN THE HEAVENLIES
  • 26:43 BETWEEN LIGHT AND DARKNESS
  • 26:45 AND IT'S PLAYING OUT
  • 26:46 THROUGH RELIGION AND POLITICS
  • 26:48 ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 26:49 AND I LIKE SAYING
  • 26:50 THAT THE HEADLINES
  • 26:51 ARE CATCHING UP TO THE BIBLE.
  • 26:53 EVERYTHING THAT WE BRING YOU
  • 26:54 IS BIBLICALLY SOUND.
  • 26:55 AND WE DO THAT WITH PURPOSE,
  • 26:57 BECAUSE WE BELIEVE
  • 26:58 THE ONLY WAY TO UNDERSTAND
  • 26:59 WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE WORLD IS
  • 27:01 THROUGH THE LENS OF THE BIBLE,
  • 27:03 THROUGH THE LENS OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 27:05 NOW WHAT'S UPCOMING
  • 27:06 IS THE SERIES ON ABRAHAM
  • 27:08 THAT YOU'VE MAYBE SEEN,
  • 27:09 THE SERIES ON ABRAHAM,
  • 27:11 WHICH REALLY GOES BACK TO THE
  • 27:12 BEGINNING OF OUR WALK OF FAITH.
  • 27:13 AND UPCOMING WILL BE
  • 27:15 "THE SONS OF PROMISE",
  • 27:16 ISAAC AND JACOB,
  • 27:17 AND WE'RE REALLY SHOWING
  • 27:18 HOW GOODNESS HAS COME
  • 27:19 THROUGH THIS LINE
  • 27:21 TO BLESS THE WHOLE WORLD,
  • 27:22 NOT ONLY WITH MESSIAH
  • 27:23 BUT ALSO WITH TECHNOLOGY
  • 27:25 AND MEDICINE AND SCIENCE
  • 27:27 AND LITERATURE AND THE ARTS,
  • 27:29 ALL COMING THROUGH THE SONS
  • 27:31 OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 27:33 Katharine: SO THANK YOU SO MUCH
  • 27:36 FOR YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS
  • 27:37 TO HELP THIS MESSAGE CONTINUE
  • 27:40 AND THANK YOU FOR HELPING US
  • 27:41 TO SHED THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL
  • 27:45 OF THE ONE NEW MAN,
  • 27:46 JEW AND GENTILE
  • 27:48 BEING MADE ONE IN MESSIAH.
  • 27:50 WE LOVE YOU, WE BLESS YOU
  • 27:51 FROM THIS HOLY LAND.
  • 27:54 Myles: AND SO, UNTIL WE SEE YOU
  • 27:55 AGAIN, REMEMBER,
  • 27:56 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 27:58 Katharine: PRAY FOR THE PEACE
  • 27:59 OF JERUSALEM.
