Caption transcript for Sons of Promise: “Mayim B’sason (water from the wells of salvation)” (4/8)

  • 00:27 AND THE LORD APPEARED UNTO ISAAC AND SAID,
  • 00:31 DWELL IN THIS LAND AND I WILL BE WITH YOU AND BLESS YOU.
  • 00:36 FOR TO YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS I GIVE ALL THESE LANDS
  • 00:41 AND I WILL PERFORM THE OATH WHICH I SWORE TO YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM
  • 00:46 AND I WILL MAKE YOUR DESCENDANTS MULTIPLY AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN
  • 00:51 AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED.
  • 01:05 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 01:07 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 01:08 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS.
  • 01:10 AND WE ARE CONTINUING OUR SERIES TODAY
  • 01:12 "THE SONS OF PROMISE; ISAAC AND JACOB".
  • 01:14 IT'S SO EXCITING.
  • 01:15 WELL GOD IS A GOD OF COVENANT,
  • 01:17 HE'S A GOD OF PROMISE,
  • 01:18 HE KEEPS HIS PROMISES AND HIS OATHS THAT HE'S MADE
  • 01:20 TO THESE PEOPLE THAT HE'S SEPARATED;
  • 01:23 TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 01:26 WE'RE GOING TO SEE IN GENESIS 26, VERSE 3...
  • 01:28 AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO READ IT
  • 01:30 BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A WONDERFUL SCRIPTURE.
  • 01:32 HE WARNS ISAAC, HE SAYS,
  • 01:53 AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT ISAAC DID.
  • 01:55 AND WE SEE THAT TODAY.
  • 01:57 WE SEE THE...WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS SERIES IS THAT
  • 01:59 NOT ONLY IS THIS FOR THE JEWS OF OLD,
  • 02:01 IT'S FOR ANYONE WHO'S BOLD ENOUGH TODAY TO LOOK INTO THE THINGS THAT GOD'S SAYING
  • 02:05 BECAUSE THE BLESSINGS ARE CONTINUING.
  • 02:07 AND WE HEAR SUCH A DIFFERENT STORY FROM THE NEWS MEDIA.
  • 02:10 I LOVE THIS...AND IT SAYS (SPEAKING HEBREW) IN HEBREW.
  • 02:14 "ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH WILL BE BLESSED."
  • 02:16 AND THERE'S A BLESSING FOR YOU AS WELL.
  • 02:19 AND SO WE'RE GOING TO GO TO OUR STORY NOW...
  • 02:21 PICK UP THE STORY OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 02:23 ABRAHAM HAS PASSED OFF THE SCENE AND HERE WE PICK UP THE BIBLICAL STORY, THE BIBLICAL NARRATIVE
  • 02:28 TO HEAR WHAT GOD IS GOING TO DO TO BLESS ALL THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.
  • 02:33 LET'S GO.
  • 02:37 NOW THERE WAS A FAMINE IN THE LAND OF CANAAN
  • 02:40 AND ISAAC WENT TO THE CITY OF GERAR.
  • 04:22 THE STORY OF ISAAC AND REBEKAH TAKES PLACE IN THE EVENING
  • 04:25 WHICH IS A PICTURE OF THE END OF THE AGE.
  • 04:27 HERE WE ARE IN THE EVENING IN MODERN ISRAEL
  • 04:29 WHERE GOD HAS BLESSED THE LAND WITH FRUITFULNESS.
  • 04:32 THERE'S AN OLD PROVERB HERE... NOT THAT OLD.
  • 04:34 IT SAYS THAT WHEN THE JEWS RETURNED TO THE LAND THE LAND SMILED.
  • 04:37 WELL THAT GOES WAY BACK TO THE TIME OF ISAAC WHEN THERE WAS A FAMINE AND GOD USED THE FAMINE.
  • 04:44 THERE ARE 13 FAMINES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 04:46 GOD USED THE FAMINE TO DRIVE ISAAC INTO A PLACE OF MEETING WITH HIM IN ORDER TO INCREASE HIS CHARACTER.
  • 04:53 ISAAC COMES TO GERAR WHICH IS NEAR GAZA;
  • 04:56 AGAIN, A PICTURE OF THE REALITY THAT THE JEWS HAVE BEEN IN THE LAND FOR 4,000 YEARS.
  • 05:02 THIS IS AN OLD STORY AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HERE FOR A LONG, LONG TIME
  • 05:06 IN SPITE OF WHAT YOU MAY BE HEARING ON THE NEWS SHOWS THAT YOU'RE SEEING.
  • 05:10 NOW HE GOES TO GERAR WHICH IS ON THE BORDER WITH EGYPT.
  • 05:14 THAT'S SIGNIFICANT.
  • 05:15 IN ONE WAY IT'S SIGNIFICANT BECAUSE IT PICTURES YESHUA
  • 05:19 WHO STAYS WITHIN THE LAND OF HIS PURVIEW, THE LAND OF HIS INHERITANCE.
  • 05:23 HE CAME FROM HEAVEN AND HE CAME TO MINISTER TO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL
  • 05:27 AND THEN WHEN THE DISCIPLES GOT A HOLD OF THE WORD THEY BROUGHT IT TO THE ENTIRE WORLD.
  • 05:32 HOWEVER, ISAAC GOES TO THIS BORDERLAND AND ON THE BORDERLAND THERE'S A DECISION TO BE MADE;
  • 05:38 "DO I GO DOWN TO EGYPT AND LOOK FOR MAN'S PROVISION"
  • 05:41 "OR DO I STAY WITHIN THE BORDERS OF MY DEPENDENCE ON GOD?"
  • 05:45 AND THAT'S WHAT HE DOES.
  • 05:47 ISAAC ALWAYS STAYS WITHIN THE LAND.
  • 05:49 THIS BECOMES A STORY ABOUT THE WELLS AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE THAT IN A LITTLE WHILE.
  • 05:53 THE WELLS ARE MENTIONED SEVEN TIMES IN RELATIONSHIP WITH ISAAC;
  • 05:58 "SEVEN" THE NUMBER OF COMPLETION,
  • 06:00 THE NUMBER OF SPIRITUAL PERFECTION,
  • 06:02 ALWAYS ASSOCIATED WITH MESSIAH.
  • 06:04 THERE ARE SEVEN USES OF THE WORD "WELLS"
  • 06:06 ASSOCIATED WITH ISAAC, YITZHAK, "THE SMILING ONE", THE ONE WHO IS THE PROMISED SON OF GOD.
  • 06:12 WELLS ARE IMPORTANT BECAUSE THEY'RE A PICTURE OF LIVING WATER.
  • 06:16 THEY CAN'T BE A CISTERN FULL OF DEAD WATER.
  • 06:18 THEY HAVE TO HAVE LIVING WATER IN THEM.
  • 06:21 THEY HAVE TO HAVE WATER THAT IS FLOWING, THAT IS ALIVE,
  • 06:23 THAT PICTURES REVIVAL, PICTURES THE LIVING WATER
  • 06:27 THAT GOD PROMISES TO YOU AND TO ME AND YESHUA AND THAT JESUS HIMSELF PROMISED TO THE SAMARITAN WOMAN.
  • 06:34 IN JOHN 4:20 HE SITS ON THE EDGE OF A WELL AND HE TELLS HER
  • 06:38 THAT HE HAS WATER THAT SHE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT...
  • 06:42 "LIVING WATER" THAT IS FOR ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 06:45 AND NOT ONLY SO, AGAIN IN THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES
  • 06:48 WHEN THE HIGH PRIEST IS BRINGING WATER UP FROM THE POOL OF SILOAM YESHUA STANDS UP AND HE SAYS,
  • 06:54 "IF ANYONE THIRSTS LET HIM COME AFTER ME AND I WILL GIVE HIM RIVERS OF LIVING WATER."
  • 07:00 "OUT OF YOUR BELLY WILL FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER."
  • 07:04 THAT'S THE PROMISE TO YOU AND TO ME WHEN WE FOLLOW THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL.
  • 07:09 WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

  • 07:54 ISAAC BECAME PROSPEROUS IN THE LAND OF CANAAN
  • 07:57 BUT THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND BECAME JEALOUS
  • 08:00 AND DESTROYED THE WELLS THAT ISAAC'S FATHER HAD DUG MANY YEARS BEFORE.
  • 08:04 ISAAC DUG NEW WELLS BUT THE PHILISTINES CLAIMED THE WATER WAS THEIRS.
  • 08:10 UNDETERRED ISAAC AND HIS MEN MOVED ON AND DUG YET ANOTHER WELL.
  • 09:04 THIS IS A STORY ABOUT WELLS.
  • 09:06 WE'RE COMING TO THAT PLACE WHERE THE WELLS ARE COMING INTO THE FOREFRONT OF THIS STORY.
  • 09:10 I'M SITTING IN A FIELD OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 09:12 THERE IS DRIP IRRIGATION HERE, A MODERN ISRAELI INVENTION.
  • 09:16 IN FACT, WHEN YOU GO IN YOUR BACKYARD AND YOU WATER YOUR LAWN OR YOUR PLANTS, YOUR SHRUBS,
  • 09:20 YOU CAN THANK THE JEWISH PEOPLE;
  • 09:22 YOU CAN THANK ISRAEL BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE DRIP IRRIGATION WAS INVENTED.
  • 09:26 WHAT THEY'RE GROWING HERE IS GRAPES.
  • 09:28 THEY VINEYARDS OF GOD ARE HERE.
  • 09:31 REMEMBER AMOS 9:15 SAID THAT THIS TIME WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE COME BACK TO THE LAND THEY WILL PLANT VINEYARDS,
  • 09:36 THEY WILL BUILD HOUSES AND THEY WILL NEVER BE PLUCKED OUT OF THIS LAND AGAIN.
  • 09:40 AND THAT'S THE PROMISE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 09:42 IT'S UP TO YOU AND ME TO STAND WITH THEM DURING THIS TIME.
  • 09:46 NOW THESE WELLS, THEY DON'T COME EASILY TO ISAAC.
  • 09:49 THEY'VE BEEN STOPPED UP BY THE PHILISTINES.
  • 09:52 THERE'S DISPUTE OVER THEM.
  • 09:54 IN FACT, THE FIRST WELL THAT HE COMES TO IS CALLED "ESEK" WHICH MEANS "DISPUTE".
  • 09:58 AND THERE'S A DISPUTING BETWEEN HIS HERDSMEN AND THE HERDSMEN OF ABIMELECH ABOUT THESE WELLS.
  • 10:04 THE SECOND WELL IS CALLED "SITNAH" OR "OPPOSITION"
  • 10:08 AND THERE'S OPPOSITION TO THE RETRIEVING OF THE LIVING WATER.
  • 10:12 ISN'T THAT SOMETHING?
  • 10:13 IT'S REALLY A PICTURE OF OUR WALK WITH GOD.
  • 10:15 THERE'S DISPUTE.
  • 10:16 THERE'S OPPOSITION.
  • 10:18 THERE'S ALWAYS CONTENTION ABOUT YOU AND I FINDING THE LIVING WATER.
  • 10:21 I DON'TKNOW ABOUT YOU BUT WHEN I CAME TO YESHUA
  • 10:23 THERE WAS A LOT OF OPPOSITION IN THE SPIRIT REALM AND EVEN IN THE NATURAL REALM
  • 10:27 BECAUSE I KNEW THAT I WAS FOLLOWING AFTER THE MESSIAH OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 10:31 AND NOT EVERYONE WAS GOING TO AGREE WITH WHAT I WAS DOING.
  • 10:34 AND SO THESE WELLS PICTURE THAT.
  • 10:36 YOU FIND THE LIVING WATER.
  • 10:38 ISAAC FINDS THE LIVING WATER AND THERE'S A DISPUTE AND THERE'S OPPOSITION.
  • 10:41 THE VERY FIRST ONE THAT THEY COME TO IS "LAHAI ROI"
  • 10:46 AND IT SPEAKS OF THE "EYE OF GOD" BEING ON THE BELIEVER,
  • 10:49 "HE THAT LIVES SEES ME".
  • 10:52 AND THAT'S REALLY THE PICTURE OF THESE WELLS.
  • 10:54 THE GOD IN HEAVEN WHO SEES US, HE IS WATCHING OVER US, HE BRINGS US LIVING WATER.
  • 10:59 IT SAYS IN THESE SCRIPTURES THAT WHEN ISAAC CAME HERE HE INCREASED A HUNDRED FOLD.
  • 11:05 IN OTHER WORDS, THE FRUITFULNESS IN THE LAND BECAUSE OF THE WELLS,
  • 11:08 BECAUSE OF THE BLESSING OF GOD,
  • 11:11 BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS, WAS SO STRONG THAT HE INCREASED HIS GOODS AND HIS WEALTH, HIS PROSPERITY ONE HUNDRED FOLD.
  • 11:17 AND THAT'S WHAT YESHUA PROMISED TO YOU AND TO ME.
  • 11:20 IN MARK 10:29 HE SAID THAT IF YOU FORSAKE ALL IN THIS LIFE AND COME AFTER ME
  • 11:26 YOU'LL HAVE A HUNDRED FOLD IN THIS LIFE AND IN THE WORLD TO COME
  • 11:30 AND SO THAT'S THE PROMISE OF GOD.
  • 11:33 FINALLY THEY COME TO THE WELL OF "REHOBOTH" WHICH MEANS "ROOM TO LIVE".
  • 11:37 AND THAT'S REALLY A PICTURE OF PEACE THAT CAN COME
  • 11:41 BETWEEN THE SONS OF ISHMAEL AND THE SONS OF ISAAC
  • 11:45 WHEN WE TURN TO THE LIVING WATER.
  • 11:47 WHEN WE SETTLE IN ON THE LIVING WATER.
  • 11:50 IF WE'RE A SON OF ESAU OR A SON OF JACOB, SON OF ISHMAEL OR A SON ISAAC
  • 11:54 WE CAN HAVE PEACE WITH ONE ANOTHER
  • 11:56 BECAUSE WE CAN SAY, I HAVE ENOUGH.
  • 11:59 THERE'S ROOM TO LIVE.
  • 12:00 THERE'S ENOUGH ROOM FOR YOU AND THERE'S ROOM FOR ME.
  • 12:04 IN FACT, WHAT A DAY IT'S GOING TO BE
  • 12:06 WHEN OUR COUSINS, WHEN OUR ARAB COUSINS SAY TO THIS TINY NATION,
  • 12:09 YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO LIVE HERE, THERE'S ROOM FOR EVERYONE.
  • 12:13 WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

  • 14:27 NOW LET'S GO BACK TO THE PROGRAM
  • 14:29 "SONS OF PROMISE, ISAAC AND JACOB".
  • 14:34 ISAAC'S FATHER AND MOTHER KNEW CANAAN VERY WELL.
  • 14:38 ABRAHAM AND SARAH HAD JOURNEYED HERE AS ALIENS THROUGH THIS VERY LAND GIVEN TO THEM BY GOD
  • 14:45 FROM ITS NORTHERN REACHES TO ITS SOUTHERN BOUNDARIES WITH EGYPT.
  • 14:48 AT BEERSHEBA ABRAHAM HAD DUG A WELL AND WAS CAREFUL TO MAKE PEACE WITH ABIMELECH THE RULING KING OF THE PHILISTINES.
  • 14:58 NOW MANY YEARS LATER ISAAC HAD COME TO BEERSHEBA WHERE HE BUILT AN ALTAR.
  • 15:05 AND THE LORD APPEARED UNTO HIM AND SAID,
  • 15:08 I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM.
  • 15:11 FEAR NOT FOR I AM WITH THEE
  • 15:14 AND WILL BLESS THEE AND MULTIPLY THY SEED FOR MY SERVANT ABRAHAM'S SAKE.
  • 15:24 THERE ARE SEVEN WELLS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE SCENES FROM ISAAC'S LIFE
  • 15:28 AND THE SEVENTH WELL IS THE WELL AT BEERSHEVA.
  • 15:31 IT IS THE WELL OF THE OATHS, THE WELL OF SEVEN.
  • 15:33 IT IS THE RE-DUG WELL OF ABRAHAM
  • 15:36 AND IT REALLY SPEAKS ABOUT THE GENERATIONS OF BLESSING, ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 15:41 IN FACT THE LORD SAYS
  • 15:42 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 15:45 "I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM YOUR FATHER".
  • 15:47 AND THAT'S THE STORY THAT'S WORTH REALLY TELLING HERE IN THIS PROGRAM
  • 15:51 THAT THE GENERATIONAL BLESSING COMES THROUGH THE LINE OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB IN THIS MODERN WORLD, IN MODERN ISRAEL.
  • 16:00 AND IN THE MODERN WORLD THERE'S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE BLESSING THAT'S COME TO THE ENTIRE WORLD THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 16:06 LISTEN TO THESE STATISTICS.
  • 16:08 SINCE 1901 THERE HAVE BEEN 850 NOBEL PRIZES AWARDED;
  • 16:13 OF THOSE NOBEL PRIZES, AND I'M SPEAKING ABOUT SERIOUS PRIZES,
  • 16:17 NOT FALSE PRIZES TO YASSER ARAFAT FOR PEACE WHICH IS RIDICULOUS,
  • 16:22 BUT I MEAN SCIENCE AND MEDICINE, TECHNOLOGY, LITERATURE, THE ARTS; REAL CONTRIBUTIONS.
  • 16:27 THERE HAVE BEEN 850 NOBEL PRIZES.
  • 16:30 OF THOSE 850 PRIZES 178 HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 16:36 WHY, BECAUSE THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM IS STILL IN EFFECT.
  • 16:41 GOD IS A COVENANT KEEPING GOD...
  • 16:42 22 PER CENT OF ALL OF THESE PRIZES GIVEN TO THIS LITTLE GROUP OF PEOPLE
  • 16:48 WHO COMPRISE LESS THAN 2 PERCENT OF THE WORLD POPULATION.
  • 16:52 YOU CAN'T MAKE THAT UP.
  • 16:54 IT IS AN INCREDIBLE STATISTIC.
  • 16:55 AND IT'S NOT ABOUT THE WONDER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE;
  • 16:58 IT'S ABOUT A COVENANT KEEPING GOD.
  • 17:00 IT'S ABOUT A GOD WHO SAYS HE WILL DO SOMETHING AND THEN HE DOES IT
  • 17:04 AND IT'S OUR JOB TO BELIEVE IT
  • 17:06 AND THAT'S AVAILABLE TO YOU AS WELL AS TO ME.
  • 17:10 WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.
  • 17:13 THANK YOU MYLES FOR YOUR TEACHING
  • 17:15 IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO REMEMBER THAT GOD WANTS US TO KEEP COVENANT
  • 17:19 AND GO BACK TO THE PLACES THAT HE'S SPOKEN
  • 17:21 AND THAT'S WHAT ISAAC DID.
  • 17:23 HE DID; HE'S RE-DIGGING WELLS,
  • 17:24 HE'S RE-UPPING WITH GOD JUST AS ABRAHAM DID.
  • 17:27 WE SEE IT GENERATIONALLY THROUGHOUT THIS STORY.
  • 17:30 WE WERE SO BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK WITH THE FRIENDS OF THE IDF
  • 17:35 AND THE "LONE SOLDIERS" PROGRAM.
  • 17:37 WE MET WITH IFAT BECHOR.
  • 17:39 SHE'S A PUBLIC RELATIONS LIAISON FOR THE "LONE SOLDIER" PROGRAM.
  • 17:42 SHE WORKS WITH THE FRIENDS OF THE IDF AND THESE KIDS WERE JUST AMAZING TO BE WITH.
  • 17:48 IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING FOR US.
  • 17:49 OUR SONS ARE AT THE AGE OF ACCOUNTABILITY WHERE THEY COULD GO.
  • 17:54 IN FACT, OUR OLDEST SON ALMOST JOINED.
  • 17:56 WELL TWICE THE LORD PUT IT ON HIS HEART WHEN WE FIRST BROUGHT THEM THERE WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG
  • 18:00 AND THAT WAS BEFORE THEY HAD GONE INTO HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 18:03 AND THEY BOTH FELT, ESPECIALLY OUR OLDER SON, FELT LIKE HE WANTED TO JOIN THE ARMY,
  • 18:09 THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING IN THAT FOR HIM.
  • 18:11 AND THEN WHEN HE WAS STUDYING ABROAD IN LONDON HE SAID SOMETHING HAPPENED TO HIM.
  • 18:16 HE WAS ACTUALLY STUDYING. HE MET WITH THE "LONE SOLDIER",
  • 18:19 THEN HE WENT BACK TO HIS ROOM STUDYING AND HE WAS REALLY,
  • 18:22 I NEED TO PROTECT GOD'S COUNTRY AND THE COUNTRY THAT I BELONG TO.
  • 18:25 IT WAS QUITE A MOMENT FOR US AS PARENTS.
  • 18:27 WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM LONDON WHERE OUR SON WAS STUDYING,
  • 18:30 DAD I THINK I'M GOING TO JOIN THE IDF.
  • 18:32 AND OF COURSE DAD WAS "YES" AND MOM WAS "WAIT".
  • 18:35 FINISH SCHOOL!
  • 18:36 JONATHAN I THINK MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE.
  • 18:39 HE DECIDED TO FINISH HIS STUDIES FIRST
  • 18:40 BUT WHEN YOU MEET THESE KIDS,
  • 18:42 WHEN WE INTERVIEW THESE YOUNG PEOPLE THEY'RE NOT KIDS,
  • 18:44 THEY'RE MATURE YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 18:46 WHEN YOU MEET THEM AND YOU HEAR THE TESTIMONY
  • 18:49 OF HOW THEY WERE MOVED UPON BY THE SPIRIT TO GO AND PROTECT THEIR HOMELAND, ISRAEL.
  • 18:55 IT'S JUST STUNNING.
  • 18:57 SO LET'S GO TO OUR INTERVIEWS WITH IFAT BECHOR AND THE LONE SOLDIERS.
  • 19:04 THE LONE SOLDIERS ARE NOW ONE OF OUR BIGGEST PROGRAMS.
  • 19:07 THERE ARE CURRENTLY 2,700 LONE SOLDIERS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 19:12 THEY DECIDED TO LEAVE THEIR HOME AND TO COME TO ISRAEL
  • 19:15 TO LEAVE THEIR FAMILIES,
  • 19:17 TO SAY GOODBYE TO THE FRIENDS WHO ARE GOING TO COLLEGE AND TO SERVE IN THE IDF.
  • 19:21 AND THESE ARE GREAT PEOPLE WHO ARE ALSO IN ISRAEL,
  • 19:25 NOT LIKE THEIR ISRAELI FRIENDS WHO AT THE END OF THE WEEK GO HOME AND HAVE A WARM MEAL
  • 19:31 AND THEY HAVE THEIR MOTHER TO MAKE THEIR LAUNDRY.
  • 19:34 THEY HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES.
  • 19:36 SO WE ARE THERE TO SUPPORT THEM IN EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
  • 19:39 I SPEAK TO SOLDIERS EVERY DAY
  • 19:41 AND NOW WE HAVE ACTUALLY A BIGGER PROGRAM
  • 19:45 THAT IS MORE OF A HOLISTIC PROGRAM FOR LONE SOLDIERS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 19:50 AND WE KIND OF HELP THEM FROM THE MINUTE THEY DECIDE
  • 19:53 THAT THEY'RE GOING TO SERVE IN THE IDF DURING THEIR SERVICE
  • 19:57 AND AFTER THEY FINISH THE ARMY WITH CONSULTANT WHETHER THEY WANT TO STAY IN ISRAEL OR NOT,
  • 20:03 IF THEY NEED SUPPORT WHEN THEY GO TO STUDY AND SO ON.
  • 20:07 AND YOU SEE THEM, YOU SEE THAT THE FACT THAT THEY GET TO KNOW THROUGH US OTHER LONE SOLDIERS AND GET THE SUPPORT.
  • 20:15 IT HELPS THEM MAKE THEIR WEEK EASIER.
  • 20:20 IT HELPS THEM UNDERSTAND
  • 20:22 THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE.
  • 20:24 SO TELL ME, WHY DID YOU JOIN THE IDF?
  • 20:26 WELL FOR ME I FEEL LIKE I WAS GROWN UP WITH TWO COUNTRIES IN MY BACKGROUND.
  • 20:31 MY FIRST COUNTRY WAS WHERE I GREW UP AND IS AMERICA.
  • 20:34 AND THE SECOND COUNTRY WAS MY HERITAGE AND WHERE ALL MY PEOPLE ARE COME FROM,
  • 20:38 ALL THE JEWS, WHICH IS ISRAEL.
  • 20:39 AND I REALLY WANTED TO HELP OUT MY SECOND COUNTRY WHICH IS ISRAEL
  • 20:44 AND I THOUGHT ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO DO THAT IS TO HELP PROTECT THEIR CITIZENS
  • 20:47 AND TO PROTECT, TO HELP THE COUNTRY THAT WE WERE GIVEN TO BY GOD.
  • 20:50 SO ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO DO THAT IS BY SERVING IN THE IDF
  • 20:53 AND MAKING SURE THAT ALL THE SOLDIERS ARE PROTECTED
  • 20:55 AND IF ONE GETS HURT YOU CAN HELP THEM AS WELL.
  • 20:58 WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE FIDF
  • 21:01 AND PERSONALLY HOW HAS THAT ORGANIZATION HELPED YOU
  • 21:04 AND WHAT DO YOU SEE FOR IT AS A WHOLE?
  • 21:06 THE FIDF HAS HELPED ME IN NUMEROUS WAYS.
  • 21:10 FOR EXAMPLE, THIS PAST SHABBAT I REALLY DIDN'T HAVE A SHIRT TO WEAR SO I WENT TO TIBERIUS,
  • 21:22 I WENT TO A STORE THERE
  • 21:23 AND WITH A VOUCHER THAT THEY GAVE ME I WAS ABLE TO BUY MYSELF A SHIRT FOR THE SABBATH.
  • 21:28 SO THAT'S ONE OF THE LITTLE THINGS.
  • 21:31 HI SAPPHIRE THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TODAY.
  • 21:33 CAN YOU TELL OUR VIEWERS WHAT CAUSED YOU TO WANT TO JOIN THE IDF.
  • 21:37 WELL I AM ORIGINALLY FROM THAILAND.
  • 21:41 I GREW UP THERE FOR 19 YEARS
  • 21:43 AND I WENT TO A BRITISH INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
  • 21:46 SO ALL MY FRIENDS WERE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 21:49 I HONESTLY DIDN'T KNOW I WAS GOING TO JOIN THE ARMY
  • 21:54 UNTIL THE LAST YEAR WHERE WE HAD TO PICK WHERE WE WANTED TO STUDY
  • 21:59 AND WHAT SUBJECT AND WHERE IN THE WORLD.
  • 22:02 MY LAST YEAR I WENT THROUGH A BIT OF RACISM IN MY SCHOOL
  • 22:08 THAT JUST MADE ME KIND OF STRONGER
  • 22:10 AND MADE ME SUPPORT MY COUNTRY MORE
  • 22:13 AND I JUST DECIDED, THOUGHT IT WAS BEST FOR ME TO MAKE AN ALIYAH AND JOIN THE ARMY.
  • 22:19 THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING AND I KNOW OUR VIEWERS AT HOME LOVE TO PRAY FOR THE IDF
  • 22:25 AND THEY KNOW THAT THERE'S ALSO AN ORGANIZATION HERE IN ISRAEL CALLED "FRIENDS OF THE IDF".
  • 22:29 HOW HAVE THEY HELPED YOU IN YOUR STATE HERE, BEING FROM THAILAND?
  • 22:33 WELL THEY HELPED ME VISIT MY FAMILY.
  • 22:37 THEY OFFERED ME A TICKET TO THAILAND
  • 22:41 LIKE A FREE TICKET TO GO VISIT MY FAMILY AND SPEND PASSOVER WITH THEM.
  • 22:44 THAT'S HUGE!
  • 22:47 YEAH, IT'S AMAZING.
  • 22:48 I GOT TO SPEND TWO WEEKS WITH MY FAMILY AND WITH MY DAD.
  • 22:52 PASSOVER DINNER WAS AMAZING.
  • 22:54 BEING A LONE SOLDIER IS VERY DIFFICULT ESPECIALLY SINCE WE DON'T HAVE PARENTS,
  • 23:00 IT'S HARD TO HAVE THE SUPPORT OR TO GET PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH
  • 23:04 AND "FRIENDS OF THE IDF" HAS JUST OPENED UP THAT WORLD OF SUPPORT AND FRIENDS.
  • 23:10 AND THEY SUPPORT YOU LIKE OTHERS HAVE SAID
  • 23:13 AND HAVING A TRIP BACK HOME WHICH MEANS EVERYTHING
  • 23:17 ESPECIALLY, IF LIKE YOU'RE GOING THROUGH FINANCIAL HARD TIMES.
  • 23:21 AND I'M ALSO A PART OF "GARIN TZABAR" WHICH WORKS WITH "FRIENDS OF THE IDF"
  • 23:25 AND IT JUST GAVE ME FAMILY AND MY FRIENDS AND THEY HELPED ME THROUGH EVERY STEP OF THE ARMY
  • 23:32 AND IT'S AMAZING!
  • 23:33 I'M VERY GLAD I DECIDED TO JOIN THE ARMY.
  • 23:37 IT MADE ME STRONGER, A BETTER PERSON
  • 23:40 AND IT JUST MADE ME MORE INDEPENDENT AND MATURE
  • 23:45 AND I REALLY LOVE PROTECTING PEOPLE IN MY COUNTRY OR HELPING OUT
  • 23:49 BECAUSE I THINK IT'S WHAT ISRAEL NEEDS.
  • 23:53 AND ISRAEL IS GOING THROUGH A LOT AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 23:56 LIKE A LOT OF POLITICAL ISSUES AROUND THE WORLD
  • 23:59 AND I JUST THINK...I LOVE SUPPORTING MY COUNTRY AND I THINK IT'S THE BEST.
  • 24:03 THANK YOU SO MUCH.
  • 24:06 THIS IS AN INSPIRING HOPE FILLED STORY
  • 24:08 THAT AMERICA REALLY NEEDS TO HERE.
  • 24:10 THANK YOU MYLES VERY MUCH FOR THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 24:13 AND I MUST TELL YOU ON BEHALF OF THE FIDF AND THE SOLDIERS AND MYSELF
  • 24:18 THAT TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE IN AMERICA, CHRISTIANS AND JEWS,
  • 24:25 THAT CARE ABOUT THE SOLDIERS
  • 24:28 AND CARE ABOUT ISRAEL AND IT'S FUTURE.
  • 24:31 IT MEANS A LOT AND IT'S NOT TAKEN FOR GRANTED.
  • 24:33 I WANT TO SAY TO YOU AND TO EVERYBODY THAT IS IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
  • 24:40 TODAH RABAH (THANK YOU VERY MUCH)
  • 24:41 L'CHAIM (TO LIFE)
  • 24:44 WHAT AN HONOR TO SPEAK WITH THESE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN.
  • 24:47 THESE ARE PEOPLE THAT YOU AND I PRAY FOR AND I KNOW OUR VIEWERS DO TOO.
  • 24:52 AND WE SEE HOW...WHAT A HOLY CALL THAT IT'S ON THEM TO PROTECT THIS LAND,
  • 24:56 TO PROTECT THEIR PEOPLE.
  • 24:57 THEY'RE NOT RETALIATING;
  • 24:59 THEY'RE SIMPLY DEFENDING WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN THEM
  • 25:01 AND THE BORDERS FOR WHICH THEY JUST WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE IN.
  • 25:05 I KNOW, IT'S SO FRUSTRATING
  • 25:08 DIFFERENT THEN THE WORLD TELLS US
  • 25:10 EXACTLY, IT'S SO FRUSTRATING TO SEE THE WAY THE NEWS MEDIA PORTRAYS THE SOLDIERS, THE IDF WHEN YOU MEET THEM
  • 25:15 I'M SO GRATEFUL THAT WE HAVE A CHANCE TO TELL OUR VIEWERS WHAT'S ACTUALLY GOING ON.
  • 25:19 BRINGING REAL STORIES
  • 25:20 REALLY IT'S JUST LIKE YOU SAY, IT'S A HOLY CALLING.
  • 25:23 THEY'RE THERE TO STAND WITH WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN.
  • 25:27 AND YOU'VE SAID SO MANY TIMES MYLES
  • 25:29 IT'S THEY GO BEYOND THE EXTRA MILE
  • 25:32 TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY DON'T TAKE ANYONE OUT UNNECESSARILY.
  • 25:36 I LOVE TELLING THE STORY
  • 25:38 BUT THEY CALL IT "KNOCKING ON THE DOOR" WHEN THEY HAVE TO DO AN OFFENSIVE
  • 25:43 BECAUSE THERE HAD BEEN SOME KIND OF AN ATTACK THEY HAVE TO ANSWER THAT.
  • 25:47 THEY'LL KNOCK ON THE DOOR BY CALLING ALL THE CELL PHONES IN THE AREA ASKING THE CIVILIANS TO LEAVE
  • 25:52 AND THEN THEY'LL DROP LEAFLETS IN ARABIC ASKING THE CIVILIANS TO LEAVE
  • 25:56 AND THEN THEY'LL PUT A ROCKET IN THE CORNER OF THE ROOF OF A BUILDING TO "KNOCK ON THE DOOR"
  • 26:02 TO SAY GET OUT OF THE WAY AND THEN THEY'LL BOMB THE BUILDING.
  • 26:05 WHAT OTHER NATION DOES THAT.
  • 26:07 THERE'S NO ONE...NO ONE.
  • 26:09 YOU CANNOT GET ANYONE TO EVEN RELATE TO THAT AND YET WE HEAR THE OPPOSITE IN THE NEWS MEDIA.
  • 26:13 IT'S A LOT LIKE ISAAC.
  • 26:16 HE DIDN'T RETALIATE.
  • 26:17 HE DIDN'T RETALIATE.
  • 26:18 IT'S ALMOST LIKE IT'S IN THE DNA.
  • 26:20 HE DIDN'T RETALIATE BUT HE HAD TO ACT...
  • 26:22 WHEN THEY TRIED TO FILL UP THE WELLS WITH DIRT HE JUST RESPONDED AND GOD...
  • 26:26 THEY FOUND GOD'S WAY OF DOING IT AND THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN MODERN ISRAEL AS WELL.
  • 26:31 IT'S JUST WONDERFUL TO SEE.
  • 26:33 THESE KIDS ARE AWESOME.
