Caption transcript for Sons of Promise: “The Wells of Salvation” (1/8)

  • 00:26 AND THE LORD APPEARED UNTO ISAAC AND SAID,
  • 00:29 "DWELL IN THIS LAND AND I WILL BE WITH YOU AND BLESS YOU."
  • 00:35 "FOR TO YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS I GIVE ALL THESE LANDS"
  • 00:40 "AND I WILL PERFORM THE OATH WHICH I SWORE TO YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM"
  • 00:44 "AND I WILL MAKE YOUR DESCENDANTS MULTIPLY AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN"
  • 00:50 "AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED."
  • 01:04 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 01:06 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 01:07 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS.
  • 01:08 AND WE ARE SO EXCITED TODAY TO BRING YOU A NEW SERIES,
  • 01:11 "THE SONS OF PROMISE: ISAAC AND JACOB".
  • 01:13 THIS IS REALLY ABOUT THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD.
  • 01:16 AND GOD'S CONTINUING HIS WORD,
  • 01:18 HIS SPOKEN WORD THAT HE SPOKE TO ABRAHAM.
  • 01:21 HE MADE HIM A PROMISE THAT HE WOULD GIVE HIM A LAND
  • 01:25 AND THAT HIS DESCENDANTS WOULD HAVE THE SAME LAND.
  • 01:27 WE'RE SEEING THAT PROMISE MADE ALIVE TODAY
  • 01:30 BECAUSE NOT ONLY DID HE PROMISE IT BUT HE'S A COVENANT KEEPING GOD
  • 01:33 AND HE RE-ESTABLISHES IT THROUGH ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 01:37 IT'S SO IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY IN THE DAY IN WHICH WE ARE LIVING
  • 01:40 THAT WE RECOGNIZE THE COVENANT LINE COMES THROUGH ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 01:44 THERE IS A BLESSING TO ISHMAEL;
  • 01:46 THERE IS A BLESSING TO ESAU IF THEY TAKE IT, IF THEY WANT IT,
  • 01:49 BUT THE COVENANT LINE IS THROUGH ISAAC AND JACOB
  • 01:52 AND WE REALLY SEE THAT IN THIS STORY.
  • 01:54 YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IN THESE 8 PROGRAMS
  • 01:56 AND IT REALLY BEAUTIFUL PLAYING OUT THROUGH THE DRAMA FROM THE BIBLE
  • 02:00 AND ALSO A LOOK INTO MODERN ISRAEL.
  • 02:02 THAT'S RIGHT
  • 02:03 SO THAT WE CAN SEE THAT THIS PROMISE IS NOT ONLY TO THE JEWS
  • 02:06 IT'S THROUGH THE JEWS
  • 02:08 AND BECAUSE OF THAT IT COMES TO YOU,
  • 02:10 IT COMES TO WHOSOEVER WILL THROUGH THE JEWS
  • 02:13 BECAUSE YESHUA SAID IN MATTHEW 22 THAT GOD IS THE GOD OF THE LIVING NOT OF THE DEAD.
  • 02:19 AND SO EVEN TODAY HE'S THE GOD OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 02:22 AND TO WHOSOEVER WOULD BE GRAFTED IN TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL.
  • 02:26 THIS IS REALLY A STORY ABOUT "DOR L' DOR", "GENERATION TO GENERATION".
  • 02:32 SO LET'S GO TO OUR DRAMA NOW AS THE BIBLICAL STORY UNFOLDS
  • 02:36 WITH ABRAHAM SENDING HIS SERVANT OUT TO FIND A WIFE FOR HIS SON ISAAC.
  • 02:47 AND ABRAHAM SENT HIS SERVANT TO THE LAND OF HIS BROTHER NAHOR TO FIND A WIFE FOR HIS SON ISAAC.
  • 03:53 THE STORY OF ISAAC AND JACOB,THE SONS OF PROMISE
  • 03:56 REALLY BEGINS WITH FATHER ABRAHAM BACK IN GENESIS 12.
  • 03:59 GOD SAYS TO ABRAHAM "LEK LEKA", "GET UP AND GO".
  • 04:02 HE CALLS HIM OUT OF THE LIFE THAT HE KNEW INTO A NEW LIFE AND A NEW LAND.
  • 04:07 WE'RE STANDING HERE IN JAFFA LOOKING AT MODERN TEL AVIV.
  • 04:10 A MIRACLE OF THE FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S PROMISES
  • 04:14 YES, GOD IS A GOD OF PROMISES.
  • 04:16 HE'S A GOD OF LOVE
  • 04:18 AND HE HAS A PLAN FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 04:20 YOU SEE IN THE LIFE OF ABRAHAM...
  • 04:22 ABRAHAM WAS A MAN OF ALTARS,
  • 04:24 ISAAC WAS A MAN OF WELLS
  • 04:26 AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE HOW JACOB IS A MAN OF TENTS,
  • 04:30 A PEACEFUL MAN THAT GOD EXTENDS HIS COVENANT PLAN
  • 04:34 AND THE NATION OF ISRAEL IS BIRTHED THROUGH THE LINE OF JACOB.
  • 04:38 YES, AND THAT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE THERE'S SUCH CONTROVERSY TODAY IN THE WORLD
  • 04:42 ABOUT THIS LITTLE COUNTRY SMALLER THAN NEW JERSEY AND YET A COVENANT LAND,
  • 04:46 SO IN THIS SERIES WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT GOD'S FULFILLMENT OF HIS COVENANT PROMISES.
  • 04:51 WE'RE GOING TO NOTICE HOW IN THE SCRIPTURE IF YOU TAKE THEM TOGETHER
  • 04:55 YOU CAN SEE THAT GOD PROMISED IN JEREMIAH 16
  • 04:58 THAT HE WOULD NO LONGER BE KNOWN AS THE GOD WHO BROUGHT US UP OUT OF EGYPT
  • 05:02 BUT AS THE GOD WHO BROUGHT US FROM THE NORTH, THE SOUTH, THE EAST AND THE WEST.
  • 05:06 AMOS 9:15 SAYS WHEN WE COME BACK INTO THE LAND THIS TIME WE WILL NEVER BE UPROOTED AGAIN.
  • 05:11 THAT'S RIGHT
  • 05:13 AND ISAIAH 66, VERSE 8 ASKS THE QUESTION... CAN A NATION BE BORN IN A DAY?
  • 05:17 AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED MAY 14, 1948
  • 05:21 THIS NATION WAS BORN AND GOD INTENDS TO KEEP IT HERE
  • 05:25 AS A WITNESS OF WHO HE IS UNTIL THE COMING OF MESSIAH.
  • 05:30 THAT'S THE SEASON THAT WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW.
  • 05:32 SO THIS STORY BEGINS WITH A WELL
  • 05:35 AND IT REALLY TELLS THE STORY OF HOW ISAAC,
  • 05:37 A MAN OF WELLS, IS GOING TO BE THE LINE THROUGH WHICH THE PROMISES WILL COME FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD
  • 05:43 ONE OF THE THINGS WE WILL SEE IN THIS SERIES
  • 05:45 IS HOW GOD IS BLESSED US NOT ONLY WITH MESSIAH
  • 05:49 BUT ALSO WITH INCREDIBLE BLESSINGS IN TECHNOLOGY AND MEDICINE AND PHYSICS,
  • 05:54 SCIENCES THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 05:56 THROUGH THIS SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE GOD HAS BROUGHT UNTOLD BLESSING TO THE EARTH.
  • 06:01 OUR STORY WILL CONTINUE WHEN WE RETURN FROM THIS...

  • 06:40 PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
  • 07:54 THE DRAMA UNFOLDS AROUND A WELL
  • 07:56 AND WE SEE THAT OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN THE STORY OF ISAAC
  • 07:58 JUST AS KATHARINE SAID IN THE EARLIER SEGMENT THAT ISAAC IS A MAN OF WELLS
  • 08:03 AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE HOW GOD USES THAT PICTURE TO SPEAK TO US ABOUT WHO HE IS
  • 08:07 AND ABOUT THE LIVING WATER THAT HE BRINGS TO WHOSOEVER WILL ASK.
  • 08:12 THERE'S SUCH A PARALLEL BETWEEN ISAAC AND YESHUA,
  • 08:16 BETWEEN ISAAC AND JESUS AS A PROMISED SON.
  • 08:19 HE REALLY IS...ISAAC IS REALLY A PICTURE OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 08:23 WE'VE SEEN THAT IN THE STORY OF ABRAHAM
  • 08:25 AND NOW WE'RE GOING TO SEE IT UNFOLD BEGINNING WITH
  • 08:27 THIS SECTION WHERE THE BRIDE IS BEING CHOSEN FOR HIM,
  • 08:31 JUST AS YOU'VE BEEN CHOSEN BY GOD AS A BRIDE FOR YESHUA.
  • 08:36 LOOK AT THE PARALLELS HERE.
  • 08:37 THERE WAS A PROMISED SEED AND A PROMISED SON.
  • 08:41 FOR BOTH ISAAC AND FOR YESHUA THERE WAS A PROMISE THAT MESSIAH WOULD COME.
  • 08:46 WE SEE THE PROMISE IN ISAIAH 9 THAT UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN
  • 08:50 AND WE SEE THAT IN THE PROMISE OF ISAAC.
  • 08:53 ABRAHAM AND SARAH WERE BEYOND HOPE AND YET GOD SAID, I'M GOING TO DO THIS.
  • 08:58 LOOK AT THE TIME IN BETWEEN, THE INTERVAL BETWEEN THE PROMISE AND THE FULFILLMENT.
  • 09:03 THERE'S A VERY LENGTHY INTERVAL IN-BETWEEN THOSE TWO.
  • 09:06 ABRAHAM AND SARAH WAITED A LONG TIME FOR THEIR SON TO BE BORN
  • 09:11 AND SO IT IS WITH THE MESSIAH.
  • 09:13 IN FACT, IN GALATIANS PAUL SAYS THAT WHEN THE FULLNESS OF TIME HAS COME GOD SENT FORTH HIS SON.
  • 09:19 THERE WAS A TIME GAP IN-BETWEEN.
  • 09:21 ANOTHER PARALLEL; BOTH SARAH AND MARY (MIRIAM) ASKED,
  • 09:25 HOW CAN THIS BE?
  • 09:27 HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?
  • 09:28 SARAH LAUGHED.
  • 09:29 MIRIAM (MARY) ASKED, HOW COULD THIS BE?
  • 09:32 AND YET NEVERTHELESS AT YOUR WORD SO BE IT.
  • 09:35 AND THEY BOTH ASKED THE QUESTION OF GOD,
  • 09:37 IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I WOULD HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR SUCH A THING AS THIS, TO BRING FORTH A SON.
  • 09:42 AND THEY WERE BOTH NAMED BEFORE THEIR BIRTH.
  • 09:45 ISAAC WAS CALLED "YITZHAK" (LAUGHTER) BEFORE HE WAS BORN
  • 09:50 AND YESHUA WAS CALLED "SALVATION" (YESHUA) BEFORE HE WAS BORN
  • 09:55 BECAUSE HE WAS GOING TO BRING SALVATION TO HIS PEOPLE.
  • 09:58 THEY BOTH HAD MIRACLE BIRTHS.
  • 10:00 THERE WAS NO WAY FOR ABRAHAM AND SARAH TO HAVE A CHILD
  • 10:03 AND THERE IS NO WAY IN THE NATURAL FOR MARY TO HAVE A CHILD WITHOUT A NATURAL FATHER.
  • 10:09 IT WAS A SUPERNATURAL BIRTH IN BOTH CASES.
  • 10:12 AND FINALLY, THEY BOTH HAD A VERY SPECIFIC, UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP TO THEIR FATHER.
  • 10:18 FOR ABRAHAM AND ISAAC IT WAS THAT FULFILLMENT OF THE WAITING FOR A PROMISED SON, A SON OF COVENANT.
  • 10:25 AND FOR YESHUA IT WAS HEARING THE SOUND COMING AT THE TIME OF HIS BAPTISM
  • 10:30 WHEN THE HEAVENS OPENED AND THE DOVE LANDED ON HIM AND HE HEARD THE VOICE OF HIS FATHER SAY,
  • 10:37 THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED.
  • 10:41 WE'RE GOING TO SEE OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN THIS STORY
  • 10:43 HOW GOD IS SPEAKING ABOUT THE STORY OF REDEMPTION THROUGH THE LIFE OF ISAAC
  • 10:48 AND THEN THROUGH THE LIFE OF JACOB.
  • 10:50 WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

  • 13:27 WELL SO MANY PLACES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT GOD SAYS
  • 13:29 "I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
  • 13:32 AND HE CALLS THE WOMAN THAT WAS OPPRESSED
  • 13:33 WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER ABRAHAM OR EVEN...
  • 13:36 JUST SO MANY PLACES WHERE GOD WANTS US TO KNOW
  • 13:39 THAT WE'RE PART OF THE COVENANT KEEPING PLAN THAT HE HAS FOR THIS EARTH.

  • 13:52 IT MAKES A BEAUTIFUL GIFT.
  • 13:53 ALSO WE WANT TO RETURN NOW TO OUR STORY.
  • 13:56 YOU KNOW THIS COVENANT STORY IS REALLY THE STORY OF THE GOD OF THE BIBLE.
  • 14:03 IT'S REALLY ABOUT HIS FAITHFULNESS.
  • 14:05 THERE ARE HEROES AND VILLAINS IN THE STORY,
  • 14:07 THERE'S DRAMA IN THE STORY,
  • 14:08 BUT IT REALLY DOES DEMONSTRATE THAT THE HERO OF THE BIBLE IS GOD HIMSELF.
  • 14:13 SO NOW LET'S RETURN TO THE BIBLICAL DRAMA THAT COMES FROM GENESIS.
  • 14:22 AND ABRAHAM'S SERVANT SPENT THE NIGHT IN THE HOME OF ABRAHAM'S BROTHER NAHOR.
  • 14:27 HE TOLD THE FAMILY ABOUT THE REASON FOR COMING
  • 14:30 AND HOW THE LORD HAD LED HIM TO THIS VERY PLACE TO FIND A WIFE FOR ISAAC.
  • 14:35 THE GOD OF HIS MASTER ABRAHAM HAD BEEN FAITHFUL
  • 14:38 FOR THE FAMILY HAD AGREED TO THE TERM SAYING,
  • 14:42 "THIS THING WAS FROM THE LORD".
  • 15:29 ABRAHAM SENDS HIS SERVANT OUT TO FIND ISAAC A BRIDE
  • 15:33 AND IT IS GOD'S PLAN THAT WE PRAY
  • 15:36 AND WE'LL SEE IN THIS SERVANT HOW FAST GOD ANSWERS HIS PRAYER.
  • 15:40 BEFORE HE EVEN BEGINS FINISHING PRAYING HE SEES REBEKAH COMING.
  • 15:44 AND REBEKAH IS WILLING AND SHE SAYS YES RIGHT AWAY.
  • 15:48 IT'S SUCH A PICTURE FOR US OF HOW TO BE A SERVANT,
  • 15:50 OF HOW TO BE WILLING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE.
  • 15:53 HE COMES WITH TEN CAMELS AND SO MANY OTHER GIFTS TO GIVE TO HER
  • 15:57 BUT HE IS LOOKING TO SEE HER HEART IF IT'S A SERVANT'S HEART, IT IT'S THE RIGHT ONE FOR ISAAC
  • 16:02 AND SHE PASSES THE TEST BY BEING A SERVANT.
  • 16:05 IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE FOR US.
  • 16:07 IT REALLY IS, AND REALLY HE COMES WITH THE BRIDE PRICE
  • 16:09 AND REBEKAH SAYS YES AND THAT'S REALLY THE PICTURE THAT WE SEE HERE.
  • 16:13 IT'S A REAL INTERPLAY BETWEEN THE MODERN AND THE ANCIENT REALITIES.
  • 16:17 WE'RE SITTING HERE IN MODERN TEL AVIV,
  • 16:20 LOOKING AT THE INCREDIBLE THING THAT GOD HAS DONE IN REBUILDING THIS NATION
  • 16:24 AND YET THIS ANCIENT STORY REALLY TELLS THE STORY OF WHAT GOES ONE FOR US WHEN WE SAY YES TO MESSIAH.
  • 16:31 SOMETIMES WHEN WE'RE IN THE HOTELS
  • 16:34 WE'LL SEE YOUNG ORTHODOX KIDS COURTING WITH ONE ANOTHER IN THE HOTELS
  • 16:39 AND THEY'LL MEET TOGETHER AND THEY'LL TALK WITH ONE ANOTHER;
  • 16:42 THE MARRIAGE HAS BEEN ARRANGED BUT THERE'S ALWAYS A HUMAN ELEMENT...THEY HAVE TO SAY YES.
  • 16:48 I REMEMBER YEARS AGO I WAS SETTING UP A MEETING IN NORTHERN INDIA
  • 16:53 AND A YOUNG PASTOR WAS ABOUT TO HAVE HIS FIRST CHILD IN ANOTHER CITY
  • 16:56 AND HIS WIFE AND HIM WERE MARRIED ONLY FIVE YEARS
  • 16:59 AND I ASKED HIM, ASHER, WHAT IS AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE LIKE TODAY,
  • 17:04 BECAUSE IN INDIA THEY STILL DO THAT.
  • 17:06 HE SAID, WHEN WE FIRST MET WE WERE SIX YEARS OLD
  • 17:11 AND WE DIDN'T SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN UNTIL THE DAY OF OUR WEDDING.
  • 17:15 WE WERE MARRIED IN A TYPICALLY INDIAN LAVISH WEDDING
  • 17:18 AND FOR THE FIRST MONTH ALL WE COULD CONSIDER WAS SUICIDE.
  • 17:23 WE WERE LIVING WITH A STRANGER,
  • 17:24 WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO LIVE...
  • 17:26 AND THEN SOMETHING HAPPENED.
  • 17:28 HE SAID, MYLES WE THREW OURSELVES ON THE FLOOR OF OUR FLAT AND WE CRIED OUT TO GOD
  • 17:33 AND HE GAVE US LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 17:35 HE GAVE US SUPERNATURAL LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
  • 17:38 AND THAT TAUGHT ME SOMETHING,
  • 17:40 THAT THERE'S ALWAYS AN ELEMENT FOR US TO SAY YES
  • 17:44 JUST AS WE SEE REBEKAH SAYING YES TO THE SERVANT OF ABRAHAM TO MARRY ISAAC
  • 17:50 WE HAVE TO SAY YES WHEN MESSIAH COMES AND KNOCKS ON THE DOOR OF OUR HEART
  • 17:55 AND SO THAT'S OUR PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY
  • 17:57 THAT WHEN YOU HEAR THAT CALL
  • 18:00 THAT YOU'LL SAY YES TO THE MESSIAH AND BECOME THE BRIDE
  • 18:05 JUST AS REBEKAH BECAME THE BRIDE OF ISAAC, A TYPE OF MESSIAH,
  • 18:08 YOU AND I CAN BECOME THE BRIDE OF MESHIACH HIMSELF.
  • 18:25 REBEKAH REALLY IS AN EXAMPLE FOR US OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE GOD'S BRIDE.
  • 18:31 YOU KNOW SHE WENT THE EXTRA MILE.
  • 18:34 NOT ONLY DID SHE WILLINGLY GIVE A STRANGER A DRINK
  • 18:37 BUT SHE OFFERED TO GIVE THE CAMELS A DRINK TOO
  • 18:40 AND THAT WAS NOT A SMALL TASK,
  • 18:43 THOSE WERE TEN VERY THIRSTY CAMELS.
  • 18:45 WHEN YOU SEE IN SCRIPTURE, TEN IS ALWAYS TESTING
  • 18:48 AND SHE PASSED THE TEST OF WANTING TO BE THAT SERVANT THAT GOD IS CALLING ALL OF US TO BE.
  • 18:54 WE STEP INTO OUR DESTINY THROUGH SERVICE AND SHE CERTAINLY DID.
  • 18:58 IT'S A GOOD WORD.
  • 18:59 YOU KNOW SPEAKING OF SERVANTS;
  • 19:01 WE HAD AN INCREDIBLE PRIVILEGE OF INTERVIEWING YAN WILLEM VAN DER HOEVAN.
  • 19:06 HE IS A DISCIPLE OF CORRIE TEN BOOM.
  • 19:08 YOU MAY KNOW HER STORY FROM "THE HIDING PLACE"
  • 19:10 AND HE HAS BEEN STANDING WITH ISRAEL AS A GENTILE
  • 19:14 STANDING WITH ISRAEL FOR OVER FORTY YEARS
  • 19:16 AND IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE HONOR FOR US TO BE WITH HIM UP NEAR THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 19:23 AND BE ABLE TO INTERVIEW HIM IN ISRAEL
  • 19:25 AND JUST TO BE ABLE TO HEAR HIS PASSION FOR THE THINGS OF GOD
  • 19:28 AND HIS PASSION THAT THE NATIONS WOULD STAND WITH ISRAEL.
  • 19:31 IT WAS SO ENCOURAGING FOR ME PERSONALLY.
  • 19:33 IT WAS A PRIVILEGE FOR US TO HAVE HIM ON OUR PROGRAM.
  • 19:36 SO LET'S WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY GO TO MY INTERVIEW WITH YAN WILLEM VAN DER HOEVAN.
  • 19:44 YAN WILLEM YOU'VE BEEN IN ISRAEL FOR OVER 40 YEARS.
  • 19:46 HOW DID YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND ISRAEL BEGIN?
  • 19:49 FIRST OF ALL IT IS NICE TO BE ON YOUR PROGRAM.
  • 19:51 THANK YOU
  • 19:53 AND AS I HAVE ALREADY DONE I BLESS YOU AND I HOPE THAT
  • 19:55 THE PEOPLE WILL SUPPORT WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND YOUR MINISTRY
  • 19:59 BECAUSE I BELIEVE THE VOICE FOR ISRAEL
  • 20:03 IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT VOICES TO SAVE OUR NATIONS.
  • 20:09 I WAS INFLUENCED, AMONG OTHERS, BY CORRIE TEN BOOM WHO LIVED IN HOLLAND WHERE I GREW UP.
  • 20:16 THE AMERICANS KNOW HER FROM "THE HIDING PLACE" FILM THAT BILLY GRAHAM MADE
  • 20:21 AND OF COURSE THE BIBLE IS EXTREMELY CLEAR
  • 20:24 ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE THAT ISRAEL HAS ESPECIALLY IN THE END TIME.
  • 20:32 I THINK, FOR INSTANCE OF JEREMIAH 30, VERSE 10 AND 11.
  • 20:36 "WHEN I BRING JACOB BACK,"
  • 20:38 "THOUGH I MAKE A FULL END WITH ALL THE NATIONS WHERE I SCATTERED HER,"
  • 20:44 "I WILL NOT MAKE A FULL END OF ISRAEL."
  • 20:46 YOU SEE THE COLLAPSE OF NATIONS.
  • 20:48 IN EUROPE, WHERE I COME FROM...
  • 20:50 ECONOMICALLY...
  • 20:51 AND INFILTRATED BY THE POWERS OF ISLAM...DECADENT.
  • 20:56 IT'S NOT ANYMORE A CHRISTIAN EUROPE,
  • 20:59 IT'S A HEATHENISH EUROPE
  • 21:02 AND AMERICA WILL GO THAT SAME WAY IF THIS MESSAGE THAT YOU REPRESENT AND A FEW OTHERS...
  • 21:08 I WISH I COULD SAY "MANY" OTHERS...WILL NOT BE HURT
  • 21:12 BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS IN ISAIAH 60, VERSE 12
  • 21:16 "THE NATION THAT SHALL NOT SERVE ISRAEL SHALL PERISH".
  • 21:19 AND MORDECAI SAID TO ESTHER, IF YOU KEEP QUIET...
  • 21:24 NOW I SPEAK TO EVERY CHRISTIAN WHETHER THEY'RE JEWISH BELIEVERS OR GENTILE BELIEVERS IN AMERICA.
  • 21:29 IF YOU KEEP SILENT NOW GOD'S PLAN WITH ISRAEL WILL GO ON
  • 21:35 BUT YOU AND YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR CHURCH
  • 21:39 WILL FACE OR HAVE TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 21:43 GIVE HER RESPITE LORD, GIVE HER RESPITE...
  • 21:46 YOU HAVE USED AMERICA TO FREE EUROPE.
  • 21:50 YOU HAVE USED AMERICA FOR 80 PER CENT OF ALL EVANGELISM.
  • 21:54 LOREN CUNNINGHAM IS AN AMERICAN...
  • 21:57 GEORGE VERWER IS OF "OPERATION MOBILISATION" IS AN AMERICAN...
  • 22:01 BILLY GRAHAM IS AN AMERICAN.
  • 22:03 I THANK GOD AS A EUROPEAN. I'M NOT CRITICAL OF THE MEN
  • 22:07 BUT I'M WOUNDED IN MY HEART TO SEE HOW AMERICA IS THROWING AWAY WHAT'S MEANT TO BE.
  • 22:14 WHEN AMERICA STOOD BESIDE ISRAEL GOD USED AMERICA.
  • 22:32 I THINK YOU CAN GET A SENSE OF THE PASSION
  • 22:34 AND THE FERVENCY WITH WHICH YAN WILLEM VAN DER HOEVAN SPEAKS
  • 22:38 AND HOW HE STANDS FOR THE THINGS THAT MATTER FOR GOD.
  • 22:41 WE COULDN'T GET ALL OF THE INTERVIEW THAT WE DID WITH HIM ON THIS PROGRAM
  • 22:46 SO IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE REST OF IT PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE,
  • 22:49 GO TO LEVITT.COM
  • 22:50 AND YOU'LL SEE THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW.
  • 22:52 HE REALLY DOES GET JUST SO EXCITED AND PASSIONATE ABOUT...
  • 22:56 THERE'S AN IMPARTATION TO PRAY FOR ISRAEL THROUGH HIS MINISTRY.
  • 22:59 EXACTLY, HE'LL CALL YOU UP TO INTERCEDE FOR ISRAEL AND TO REALLY STAND FOR THE LORD.
  • 23:04 HE'S A WONDERFUL MAN.
  • 23:06 AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO GO AND SHOW SOME OF THE BENEVOLENT FUNDS
  • 23:09 THAT WE SUPPORT THROUGH ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES.
  • 23:11 "BRIDGES FOR PEACE"...
  • 23:13 THEY HELP HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS,
  • 23:15 THEY HELP THE IDF
  • 23:16 AND REALLY THEY'VE BEEN THERE IN THE LAND FOR FORTY YEARS OR MORE
  • 23:20 BUILDING THAT BRIDGE BETWEEN JEWS AND CHRISTIANS.
  • 23:24 YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 23:25 YOU KNOW MARK LEVITT
  • 23:27 ON THIS SERIES YOU ARE GOING TO SEE A NUMBER OF TIMES
  • 23:28 WHEN MARK LEVITT IS INTERVIEWING SOME OF THE BENEVOLENCE FUNDS THAT WE SUPPORT.
  • 23:32 I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS BUT YOUR FUNDS TO THIS MINISTRY
  • 23:35 NOT ONLY GO TO PRODUCE THESE PROGRAMS
  • 23:37 BUT WE ALSO ARE CONSTANTLY SUPPORTING DIFFERENT MINISTRIES,
  • 23:41 AND DIFFERENT BENEVOLENCE FUNDS IN ISRAEL.
  • 23:43 SO NOW LET'S GO TO MARK LEVITT INTERVIEWING BRIDGES FOR PEACE.
  • 23:48 WHAT MAKES BRIDGES FOR PEACE UNIQUE AMONG MINISTRIES IN ISRAEL?
  • 23:52 WELL I THINK THATWHAT MAKES US UNIQUE IS OUR VISION
  • 23:56 AND THAT IS WE HAVE A VISION OF CHANGING THE ATTITUDES OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS TOWARD ONE ANOTHER.
  • 24:00 IN FACT, THE FACT THAT WE'RE BASED IN JERUSALEM IS ALSO VERY SPECIAL.
  • 24:05 YOU KNOW A LOT OF MINISTRIES ARE BASED IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY
  • 24:08 WHEREVER THAT MIGHT BE IN THE WORLD
  • 24:10 AND THEY'RE TELLING WHAT GOD BELIEVES ABOUT ISRAEL AND SO ON
  • 24:13 BUT WE'RE ACTUALLY HERE WITH 70 PEOPLE ON THE GROUND WHO ARE SHOWING GOD'S LOVE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 24:18 AND MOST JEWISH PEOPLE, MOST ISRAELIS HAVE A HUGE MEMORY OF THE HOLOCAUST
  • 24:24 AND TO OUR GREAT SADNESS THEY BELIEVE THAT CHRISTIANS CAUSED MOST OF THEIR PAIN THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES.
  • 24:30 SO WE'RE HERE AS CHRISTIANS ON THE GROUND FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 24:34 WE HAVE CHRISTIANS FROM 15 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES ON OUR STAFF
  • 24:37 AND WE'RE HERE TO SHOW THAT WE LOVE THEM.
  • 24:40 AS CHRISTIANS WE LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE;
  • 24:41 THAT WE BELIEVE GOD HAS A PLAN AND A PURPOSE FOR THEIR LIVES
  • 24:44 AND WE BELIEVE GOD IS BRINGING THEM BACK FROM THE NATIONS
  • 24:48 AND THAT WE WILL DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO COOPERATE WITH GOD'S PLANS.
  • 24:50 WONDERFUL
  • 24:51 NOW I UNDERSTAND THAT RIDGES FOR PEACE IS A MULTI-FACETED OUTREACH
  • 24:54 THAT HELPS OLD PEOPLE, CHILDREN, IMMIGRANTS, MANY DIFFERENT SORTS OF PEOPLE.
  • 25:00 WHAT IMPACT WOULD YOU SAY BRIDGES FOR PEACE HAS HAD HERE?
  • 25:04 OH, IT'S QUITE SIGNIFICANT.
  • 25:06 ACTUALLY AT THE CURRENT TIME WE HAVE ABOUT 28,000 PEOPLE IN ISRAEL ARE RECEIVING FOOD THAT'S GIVEN FROM CHRISTIANS.
  • 25:13 CHRISTIAN MONEY GIVEN TO THEM ALL OVER ISRAEL...
  • 25:16 52 DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES...
  • 25:18 WE WORK WITH 18 DIFFERENT MUNICIPALITIES
  • 25:20 AND I WOULD GUESS THAT PROBABLY 60 PER CENT OF OUR RECIPIENTS
  • 25:26 ARE CHILDREN AND OF COURSE A LOT OF ELDERLY PEOPLE AS WELL.
  • 25:31 I'M SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THE FACT THAT ISRAEL HAS A HUGE NUMBER OF IMMIGRANTS.
  • 25:36 IN FACT ABOUT 3 MILLION OF THE POPULATION CAME HERE AS IMMIGRANTS
  • 25:40 AND WE'RE HELPING A LOT OF THEM.
  • 25:42 SO WE HELP IMMIGRANTS...
  • 25:44 PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST LANDING IN THE LAND
  • 25:46 AND DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE THEIR NEXT FOOD
  • 25:49 AND WE HELP ORPHANAGES...
  • 25:51 IT'S A HUGE REACH.
  • 25:53 IN FACT, SO MUCH THAT WE'RE RECOGNIZED BY THE KNESSET AND BY THE FOREIGN MINISTRY
  • 25:57 AND BY VARIOUS PARTS OF THE GOVERNMENT
  • 25:59 AS BEING A SIGNIFICANT HELP TO THE SOCIAL ECONOMIC NEEDS OF THIS COUNTRY.
  • 26:06 SPEAKING OF "SONS OF PROMISE", I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE FAMILIAR WITH MARK LEVITT.
  • 26:10 HE IS THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF OUR MINISTRY AND ZOLA'S SON.
  • 26:14 SO TO SEE HIM INTERVIEWING BRIDGES FOR PEACE IS REALLY KIND OF NICE.
  • 26:18 AND YOU KNOW, THAT MINISTRY IS SO PROFOUND.
  • 26:20 THEY DISTRIBUTE 70 TONS OF FOOD PER MONTH IN ISRAEL
  • 26:25 AND THEY SERVE 300 HOT MEALS A DAY TO CHILDREN IN ISRAEL...THOSE WITHOUT.
  • 26:30 SO IT'S REALLY A WONDERFUL WORK
  • 26:31 AND WE GET TO BE PART OF SUPPORTING THEM.
  • 26:33 AND IT'S SO NEEDFUL THIS TIME
  • 26:36 IT REALLY IS
  • 26:37 SO WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN US AGAIN NEXT WEEK.
  • 26:40 WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE WITH "THE SONS OF PROMISE" AND SEE HOW GOD IS ALIVE TODAY.
  • 26:45 UNTIL WE SEE YOU REMEMBER...
