Caption transcript for Sons of Promise: “The Promise of Heaven Touches Earth” (6/8)

  • 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
  • 01:09 AND WELCOME BACK TO THE "SONS OF PROMISE".
  • 01:12 WE'VE SEEN SO MANY INTERVALS BETWEEN ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
  • 01:16 AND THE WOMEN GET INVOLVED HERE MYLES.
  • 01:19 REBEKAH HEARD FROM THE LORD ABOUT THAT SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE THESE TWO TWINS
  • 01:24 AND THE OLDER WAS GOING TO SERVE THE YOUNGER
  • 01:27 AND SO SHE IMPOSES HOW THIS IS COMING ABOUT.
  • 01:30 SHE HAS JACOB TO GO IN AND GET THE BLESSING FROM ISAAC
  • 01:34 AND THAT CAUSED QUITE ANGST WITH ESAU.
  • 01:38 THE CONFLICT STARTED IN THE WOMB
  • 01:41 AND IT'S PROPHESIED BY GOD
  • 01:42 AND WE'RE SEEING IT PLAY OUT IN OUR LIVES TODAY.
  • 01:45 THERE'S STILL CONFLICT BETWEEN THE SONS OF JACOB, WHO IS ISRAEL, AND THE SONS OF ESAU.
  • 01:50 AND SO AS WE GO TO OUR STORY TODAY
  • 01:52 WE'RE GOING TO PICK UP WITH REBEKAH SPEAKING TO JACOB ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO TAKE PLACE
  • 01:57 AND THE FACT THAT HIS BROTHER IS AFTER HIM AND THERE'S GOING TO BE GREATER CONFLICT TO COME.
  • 02:02 SO LET'S GO TO OUR STORY NOW.
  • 02:07 IN THE LATER DAYS OF HIS LIFE ISAAC HAD BEEN DECEIVED BY HIS SON JACOB.
  • 02:12 UNKNOWINGLY ISAAC HAD GIVEN HIS BLESSING TO JACOB INSTEAD OF ESAU
  • 02:18 AND NOW THE WINDS OF ESAU'S WRATH WERE BLOWING THROUGH THE CAMP.
  • 02:23 JACOB'S MOTHER REBEKAH PROVIDES COUNSEL AND STERN WARNING TO HER SON.
  • 03:13 TALK ABOUT THE SONS OF PROMISE,
  • 03:15 WE'RE AT THE WESTERN WALL, THE KOTEL ON "BAR MITZVAH" DAY
  • 03:19 AND WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO TELL YOU THAT JACOB IS THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 03:23 JACOB WHO WILL BECOME ISRAEL IS THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 03:26 AND THE PARALLELS BETWEEN JACOB AND THE LIFE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 03:30 LISTEN TO THIS.
  • 03:31 HE WAS LOVED BEFORE HE WAS BORN
  • 03:33 AND SO IT IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 03:35 IN ROMANS 9 GOD SAYS THAT JACOB I HAVE LOVED
  • 03:38 AND IN JEREMIAH 31 HE SAYS THE SAME THING ABOUT THE PEOPLE OF JACOB, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 03:44 HE WAS THE OBJECT OF GOD'S ELECTION.
  • 03:48 JACOB WAS THE OBJECT OF GOD'S ELECTION
  • 03:50 AND IN AMOS 3:2 WE SEE THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE ALSO THE OBJECT OF GOD'S ELECTION.
  • 03:56 HE BEARS 12 TRIBES.
  • 03:58 12 SONS COME FROM HIM.
  • 04:00 AND AS IT IS THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE THE 12 TRIBES.
  • 04:04 JACOB IS HIS NAME AND GOD IS NOT ASHAMED TO BE CALLED THE GOD OF JACOB.
  • 04:09 IN FACT, WE'RE ADMONISHED AS THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BRING THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD TO THE WORLD AS THE HOUSE OF JACOB.
  • 04:17 ISAIAH 2:5.
  • 04:19 GENESIS TELLS US THAT JACOB SHOULD BE SERVED BY THE GENTILE PEOPLE
  • 04:22 AND ALSO IT SAYS THAT ABOUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISAIAH 49,
  • 04:26 THAT THEY'RE TO BE SERVED BY THE GENTILES.
  • 04:27 WE'RE SEEING THAT TODAY.
  • 04:29 IF YOU SAW OUR STAND UP WITH YAN WILLEM VAN DER HOEVAN
  • 04:33 YOU KNOW THAT HIS PASSION IS THAT THE GENTILE WORLD, THE CHURCH ESPECIALLY,
  • 04:36 WOULD COME AND WOULD SERVE ISRAEL
  • 04:38 AND WOULD STAND WITH ISRAEL IN THE DAY IN WHICH WE'RE LIVING.
  • 04:41 JACOB HAD AN EARTHLY INHERITANCE
  • 04:44 AND SO IT IS WITH THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 04:46 EVERY YEAR AT PASSOVER WE WOULD SAY
  • 04:48 "B'SHANAH H'BA B'YERUSHALAYIM";
  • 04:50 THAT WE WOULD BE RETURNED TO THE LAND OF JERUSALEM.
  • 04:53 1948...GOD FULFILLED THAT.
  • 04:55 JACOB HAD AN EARTHLY INHERITANCE IN THE LAND.
  • 04:58 THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE OUR EARTHLY INHERITANCE IN THE LAND.
  • 05:01 JACOB VALUED THE BLESSING OF GOD.
  • 05:03 HE WENT AFTER IT.
  • 05:05 AND SO IT IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE, WHETHER WE SEE IT OR NOT CLEARLY,
  • 05:07 WE HAVE A ZEAL FOR GOD IT TELLS US IN ROMANS.
  • 05:10 ALSO, WHILE IN EXILE JACOB WAS MISTREATED BY THOSE AROUND HIM;
  • 05:15 LABAN AS A TYPE OF THE TASKMASTER.
  • 05:18 SO IT IS FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE PERSECUTED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD IN THE TIME OF EXILE.
  • 05:22 AND ALSO LOOKING TOWARDS THE PROMISED LAND LOOKING TO COME BACK.
  • 05:27 JACOB WAS MADE WEALTHY BY GOD IN THE TIME THAT HE WAS IN EXILE
  • 05:31 AND IN THE TIME HE WAS IN THE LAND.
  • 05:33 THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE TIME OF OUR WANDERING HAVE BEEN MADE WEALTHY AND BROUGHT BACK TO THE LAND.
  • 05:37 THAT WEALTH IS THE CAUSE OF ENMITY
  • 05:40 JUST AS IT WAS THE CAUSE OF ENMITY AGAINST JACOB
  • 05:42 IT'S THE CAUSE OF ENMITY FROM THE WORLD AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 05:45 THERE'S RESENTMENT,
  • 05:47 IN FACT, SO MUCH SO THAT JUST AS ESAU CLAIMED THAT THE BIRTHRIGHT WAS STOLEN
  • 05:51 EVEN THOUGH IT WAS GOD'S SOVEREIGN CHOICE
  • 05:54 SO IT IS TODAY THE SONS OF ESAU ARE SAYING THAT THE PROMISE DOES NOT COME TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE BUT TO THE SONS OF ESAU.
  • 06:00 THAT CHALLENGE IS STILL THERE TODAY.
  • 06:02 OTHERS TRIED TO DISPLACE AND REPLACE JACOB THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE.
  • 06:07 AND SO IT IS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 06:09 OTHERS HAVE TRIED TO REPLACE AND DISPLACE US
  • 06:12 BUT GOD SAYS WE ARE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.
  • 06:15 AND FINALLY IN THE END JACOB BLESSED THE GENTILE WORLD.
  • 06:20 THROUGH HIS SON JOSEPH HE SAVED THE GENTILE WORLD
  • 06:23 AND SO IT IS THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE THE MESHIACH WILL COME BACK AND THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL BE BLESSED.
  • 06:29 NOT ONLY HAS THE WORLD BEEN BLESSED THROUGH THE PROMISES OF GOD THAT HAVE COME THROUGH ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB;
  • 06:35 NOT ONLY THE PROMISES THROUGH ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
  • 06:39 AND THE GREATNESS OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF MEDICINE AND SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, LITERATURE AND THE ARTS
  • 06:45 BUT ALSO THROUGH MESSIAH HIMSELF.
  • 06:47 AND IN THE END THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL BE BLESSED BECAUSE OF THE SONS OF JACOB,THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

  • 07:42 AND JACOB LEFT HIS MOTHER AND FATHER IN BEERSHEBA AND JOURNEYED TOWARD HARAN.
  • 07:55 FINDING A SUITABLE STONE FOR A PILLOW HE LAID DOWN AND FELL ASLEEP.
  • 08:01 AND JACOB DREAMED THERE WAS A LADDER THAT REACHED UP INTO HEAVEN.
  • 08:09 HE SAW ANGELS OF GOD ASCENDING AND DESCENDING.
  • 08:14 AND THE LORD SAID, "I AM THE LORD THE GOD OF YOUR GRANDFATHER ABRAHAM."
  • 08:20 "I AM THE GOD OF ISAAC."
  • 08:22 "I WILL GIVE YOU THE LAND THAT YOU ARE LYING UPON."
  • 08:26 "I WILL GIVE THIS LAND TO YOU AND TO YOUR SEED"
  • 08:30 "AND YOUR SEED WILL BE LIKE THE DUST OF THE EARTH"
  • 08:33 "AND YOU SHALL EXPAND TO THE WEST AND EAST;"
  • 08:36 "TO THE NORTH AND TO THE SOUTH."
  • 08:38 "ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS."
  • 08:44 "I AM WITH YOU AND WILL PROTECT YOU WHEREVER YOU GO"
  • 08:50 "AND WILL BRING YOU BACK TO THIS LAND."
  • 08:52 "I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU UNTIL I HAVE DONE WHAT I HAVE PROMISED."
  • 09:04 OVER MY SHOULDER YOU SEE A MODERN INTERPRETATION OF THE LADDER FROM HEAVEN
  • 09:09 THAT JACOB EXPERIENCED IN THIS PORTION OF OUR DRAMA.
  • 09:12 YOU KNOW IT'S INCREDIBLE; IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE PASSAGES
  • 09:15 BECAUSE IT SPEAKS ABOUT THE CONNECTION BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH THAT GOD ALWAYS INTENDED FOR US
  • 09:20 AND THAT HE REVEALED TO JACOB.
  • 09:22 AS YOU GO FORWARD IN TIME FROM HERE
  • 09:24 YESHUA HIMSELF SPOKE TO NATHANIEL IN JOHN 1 VERSES 47 THROUGH 51.
  • 09:30 HE SAID THAT YOU BELIEVED I'M THE SON OF GOD BECAUSE I SAID I SAW YOU UNDER THE FIG TREE.
  • 09:34 WELL YOU'RE GOING TO SEE GREATER THINGS THAN THIS.
  • 09:37 YOU'RE GOING TO SEE ANGELS ASCENDING AND DESCENDING FROM HEAVEN UPON THE SON OF MAN.
  • 09:41 AND YESHUA REVEALED HIMSELF AS MESHIACH; AS MESSIAH TO NATHANIEL.
  • 09:46 THIS ALL BEGAN WITH JACOB.
  • 09:48 IT IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT THAT IT'S JACOB AND NO ONE ELSE TO WHOM THIS VISION WAS REVEALED
  • 09:55 BECAUSE IT'S A PICTURE OF THE CONNECTION AND THE ACCESS THAT YESHUA MADE FOR US WITH HEAVEN.
  • 10:01 AND THE CONNECTION AND THE ACCESS THAT'S SO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH
  • 10:05 TRIED TO DO ON THE PLAINS OF SHINAR WHEN THEY BUILT THE TOWER OF BABEL
  • 10:09 AND THEY TRIED TO REACH UP TO HEAVEN SAYING, LET US MAKE OURSELVES A NAME.
  • 10:13 THIS IS THE OPPOSITE.
  • 10:14 SOMEONE WISELY SAID RELIGION IS MAN'S ATTEMPT TO REACH GOD
  • 10:19 BUT YESHUA, JESUS IS GOD'S ATTEMPT TO KNEEL TO MAN.
  • 10:24 IT'S SUCH A DIFFERENT ORDER.
  • 10:25 IT'S SUCH A DIFFERENT CALIBER OF REACH.
  • 10:28 AND WE WERE THOSE IN NEED.
  • 10:30 WE NEEDED THE LADDER TO COME FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH.
  • 10:32 WE NEEDED THE ACCESS AND THE CONNECTION TO BE MADE BY GOD HIMSELF
  • 10:37 AND SO HE BECAME THE LAMB.
  • 10:39 HE MADE HIMSELF A LAMB.
  • 10:41 AND BEYOND THAT; PHILIPPIANS 2, VERSES 5 AND FOLLOWING IT SAYS
  • 10:44 HE MADE HIMSELF OF NO REPUTATION.
  • 10:47 HE THOUGHT IT NOT ROBBERY TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD.
  • 10:49 HE WAS OF HEAVEN AND YET HE CAME TO EARTH AND WAS OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH;
  • 10:54 THE DEATH OF THE CROSS.
  • 10:55 SO THAT WE WOULD KNOW THAT THE DAY WAS COMING
  • 10:58 WHEN EVERY KNEE WOULD BOW AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS
  • 11:01 THAT HE IS LORD TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.
  • 11:05 HE IS THE GATE.
  • 11:06 HE IS THE DOOR AND HE IS THE LADDER AND WE SEE THAT PICTURED HERE.
  • 11:10 AND HE WAS SO GRACIOUS THAT IN THE TANAKH, IN THE TORAH, IN THE EARLIER SCRIPTURES
  • 11:15 HE REVEALED HIMSELF TO JACOB IN THIS WAY; THE CROSS FLOWING BACKWARDS AND FLOWING FORWARDS.
  • 11:20 WOW!WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.
  • 11:29 SHALOM, I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 11:31 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS
  • 11:32 AND WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR PARTNERING WITH US.
  • 11:35 YOU KNOW WITHOUT YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS WE CAN'T CONTINUE WHAT WE'RE DOING

  • 11:41 AND WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY MORE OUT THERE
  • 11:44 THAT ARE JUST WAITING FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE TO THIS MINISTRY,
  • 11:47 TO SEE THE JEWISH JESUS REVEALED.
  • 11:50 YES, WE'RE SO GRATEFUL TO BE PART OF WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THESE LAST DAYS
  • 11:53 AND WE WANT TO DO EVEN MORE AS WE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING.
  • 11:56 SO GOD BLESS YOU FOR STANDING WITH US.
  • 12:33 MYLES THIS IS MY FAVORITE,
  • 12:35 THE STUDYING OF THE WORD OF GOD IS WHERE WE GET OUR FAITH.
  • 12:39 REBEKAH SENDS JACOB OUT TO GO FIND A WIFE AND HE FINDS THE LORD.
  • 12:46 YEP, IT'S REALLY QUITE A STORY.

  • 12:57 AND OUR RESOURCE THIS WEEK IS THIS SERIES,
  • 12:59 "THE SONS OF PROMISE"
  • 13:01 ABOUT HOW THE GENERATIONAL BLESSINGS HAVE COME UPON THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 13:04 ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
  • 13:06 AND IS CONTINUING TODAY AS GOD IS USING THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BLESS THE ENTIRE WORLD
  • 13:11 THROUGH MEDICINE, SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, THE ARTS, AND IN MANY OTHER WAYS.
  • 13:15 NOW WE'RE GOING TO SEE AS KATHARINE SAID THAT JACOB GOES OUT LOOKING FOR HIS BRIDE AND HE ENCOUNTERS GOD.
  • 13:22 WE'RE GOING TO SEE THE SYMBOLS OF THE ROCK AND THE OIL COMING TO LIFE
  • 13:25 AS JACOB HAS HIS ENCOUNTER WITH GOD HIMSELF.
  • 14:36 HERE WE ARE IN MODERN ISRAEL ON JAFFA STREET
  • 14:39 AND WE'RE SEEING THE MIRACLE OF THE REBIRTH OF ISRAEL
  • 14:41 BECAUSE WE'RE ALSO SEEING THAT GOD EXTENDS HIS BLESSING FROM ABRAHAM TO ISAAC TO JACOB
  • 14:48 AND ISAAC BRINGS JACOB IN AND HE BLESSES THEM THE SECOND TIME
  • 14:51 AND HE SAYS YOU WILL NOT TAKE A WIFE FROM THE DAUGHTERS OF CANAAN BUT GO TO OUR FATHER'S HOUSE.
  • 14:57 RIGHT, TO OUR OWN PEOPLE;
  • 14:59 AND WHEN JACOB AWAKENS FROM HIS DREAM HE RENAMES THIS PLACE FROM LUZ TO BETHEL WHERE HE AWAKENS.
  • 15:05 AND LUZ MEANS "SEPARATION". BETHEL MEANS "HOUSE OF GOD".
  • 15:08 WE NEED TO BE SEPARATED IN ORDER TO COME IN TO THE HOUSE OF GOD.
  • 15:12 THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO ME AND KATHARINE.
  • 15:14 THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU IF YOU'RE A BELIEVER.
  • 15:15 THAT'S WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU'RE A PRE-BELIEVER.
  • 15:18 WE NEED TO BE SEPARATED FROM THIS WORLD AND BROUGHT INTO BETHEL, THE HOUSE OF GOD.
  • 15:23 THAT'S WHAT JACOB WAS SPEAKING ABOUT.
  • 15:25 THEN HE ANOINTS THE ROCK THAT IS THERE WITH OIL.
  • 15:28 WHAT A PICTURE OF THE ANOINTING OF THE CORNER STONE,
  • 15:31 MESHIACH MEANS 'ANOINTED ONE",
  • 15:33 MESSIAH, IN ENGLISH "CHRIST".
  • 15:35 IT MEANS "ANOINTED ONE".
  • 15:37 AND THE ANOINTING THE MESHIACH IS WHAT'S PICTURED HERE.
  • 15:40 PETER IN I PETER 2:6 QUOTES ISAIAH 28 AND HE SAYS,
  • 15:44 "BEHOLD I LAY IN ZION A STONE, A CORNER STONE, A PRECIOUS STONE
  • 15:49 AND HE WHO BELIEVES INTO HIM WILL NOT BE ASHAMED."
  • 15:52 AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU AND TO ME.
  • 15:54 THE OIL, THE ANOINTING IS ALWAYS SPEAKING ABOUT THE KING AND THE PRIEST;
  • 15:57 ALWAYS SPEAKING AND LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ANOINTED ONE...
  • 16:01 TO "MESHIACH"; TO MESSIAH.
  • 16:03 YOU KNOW THE RABBIS SAY THAT JACOB PLACED OIL UPON THE HEAD OF THE STONE.
  • 16:08 WHAT A PICTURE OF THE ANOINTING ON THE CORNER STONE YESHUA.
  • 16:13 AND HERE'S THE PROMISE TO JACOB,
  • 16:15 "I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU, I WILL WATCH OVER YOU AND I WILL BRING YOU BACK TO YOUR LAND."
  • 16:20 AND THAT'S WHAT HE'S DONE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE;
  • 16:22 HE HAS NOT LEFT US, HE HAS WATCHED OVER US, AND HE HAS BROUGHT US BACK TO THE LAND
  • 16:27 AND THAT'S A PROMISE TO YOU AS WELL.
  • 16:29 IF YOU'RE A BELIEVER IN MESSIAH HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU;
  • 16:31 HE WILL WATCH OVER YOU; AND HE WILL BRING YOU INTO YOUR LAND.
  • 16:53 THERE'S NOTHING LIKE HEARING THE WORD ON LOCATION ABOUT WHAT WE'RE SPEAKING ABOUT MYLES.
  • 16:58 YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB.
  • 17:00 WELL THANKS.
  • 17:01 REALLY IT'S THE PICTURE OF THE THOUSAND GENERATIONS.
  • 17:04 LISTEN TO THIS FROM PSALM 105, VERSE 7,
  • 17:14 WE'RE ABOUT TO MEET SOME OF THOSE GENERATIONS
  • 17:16 BUT LISTEN TO THIS,
  • 17:25 SO GOD MENTIONS EVEN IN PSALMS HOW THE NAME CHANGE THAT'S ABOUT TO HAPPEN;
  • 17:30 WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE TRANSFORMATION
  • 17:32 IS ACTUALLY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
  • 17:34 AND SO WE WERE ABLE TO INTERVIEW MESSIANIC BELIEVERS ON SITE IN ISRAEL.
  • 17:39 THESE KIDS; I CALL THEM KIDS;
  • 17:41 THEY'RE WONDERFUL, MATURE YOUNG ADULTS.
  • 17:43 THEY SERVE IN THE ARMY AND THEY ARE MINISTERING THROUGHOUT THE LAND.
  • 17:47 SOME OF THEM ARE REAL INVOLVED WITH RECONCILIATION BETWEEN YOUNG JEWISH KIDS AND ARAB KIDS
  • 17:52 AND THEY'RE JUST FULL OF LIFE.
  • 17:54 IT WAS SUCH A PRIVILEGE FOR US TO BE THERE IN JERUSALEM
  • 17:57 AND TO INTERVIEW THESE MESSIANIC BELIEVERS.
  • 17:59 SO SPEAKING OF "SONS OF PROMISE"
  • 18:01 LET'S GO TO OUR INTERVIEWS WITH SOME OF THE ACTUAL SONS OF PROMISE TODAY IN ISRAEL.
  • 18:08 YOSI YOU ARE A NATIVE ISRAELI, SABRA.
  • 18:11 WHAT PART OF ISRAEL DID YOU GROW UP IN?
  • 18:13 I GREW UP ACTUALLY
  • 18:15 IN MATEH YEHUDA AREA.
  • 18:17 THAT'S LIKE KIBBUTZ MOSHAV AREA.
  • 18:20 AND THEN I MOVED TO JERUSALEM AT THE AGE OF TWELVE.
  • 18:22 AND YOU'RE WORKING IN MEDIA AND WE'RE SITTING HERE OUTSIDE THE PAVILION OF KING OF KINGS
  • 18:29 AND YOU ALSO HAVE A JOURNEY OF FAITH.
  • 18:32 CAN YOU TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT?
  • 18:34 AT THE AGE OF SIXTEEN, I BASICALLY FELL FROM MY FAITH...
  • 18:38 DIDN'T BELIEVE IT ANYMORE.
  • 18:40 DURING THE ARMY PERIOD I STARTED BELIEVING AGAIN.
  • 18:42 I CAME TO A POINT WHERE I WAS REALLY STRESSED AND REALLY BROKEN
  • 18:46 WHERE I ASKED GOD TO COME BACK IN MY LIFE AND INTERVENE.
  • 18:50 SO IT TOOK MAYBE TWO WEEKS
  • 18:54 AND I WAS REALLY READING THE BIBLE EVERY DAY AND HAVING A GOOD TIME.
  • 18:58 IF YOU HAVE A MESSAGE FOR AMERICAN YOUNG PEOPLE WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM?
  • 19:03 JUST BE READY TO HEAR GOD IN THE STORM.
  • 19:08 JUST LISTEN TO HIM.
  • 19:10 AND DO YOU FEEL THAT THERE'S A CERTAIN WAY THAT WE CAN STAND WITH ISRAEL,
  • 19:15 ANYTHING THAT OUR VIEWERS CAN KNOW ABOUT STANDING WITH THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN ISRAEL?
  • 19:18 WELL ISRAEL IS ABOUT TO FACE A LOT OF HARD TIMES THAT ARE COMING AHEAD.
  • 19:24 THE MAIN THING YOU CAN DO IS KEEP TALKING TO YOUR NEIGHBORS,
  • 19:27 KEEP TALKING POSITIVE ABOUT ISRAEL AND THE MORE SUPPORT WE HAVE THE MORE WE CAN GIVE.
  • 19:33 JAMIE WE ARE HERE OUTSIDE PAVILION WHERE KING OF KINGS MEETS FROM HERE SUNDAY NIGHT.
  • 19:38 YOU DID A GREAT JOB OF LEADING WORSHIP.
  • 19:39 THANK YOU
  • 19:41 TELL ME WHAT'S YOUR...
  • 19:42 YOUR WORK HERE IS AS A WORSHIP LEADER
  • 19:44 BUT YOU'RE ALSO INVOLVED WITH RECONCILIATIONS.
  • 19:46 TELL US ABOUT THAT.
  • 19:48 WELL MY ROLE AT KING OF KINGS IS THE YOUNG ADULTS DIRECTOR AND A MUSIC DIRECTOR.
  • 19:53 IN OUR YOUNG ADULTS WE HAVE MOSTLY INTERNATIONAL YOUNG ADULTS
  • 19:57 BUT WE ALSO HAVE JEWISH AND ARAB PEOPLE WHO ATTEND THE GROUP.
  • 20:00 BUT I ALSO WORK WITH SOME RECONCILIATION MINISTRIES
  • 20:04 ESPECIALLY TO PROMOTE WORSHIP EVENTS THAT ARE BOTH IN HEBREW AND IN ARABIC.
  • 20:08 I FIND MUSIC IS ALWAYS A REALLY POWERFUL TOOL TO UNITE PEOPLE
  • 20:12 TO JUST KIND OF GET THE TENSION DOWN
  • 20:14 AND GET PEOPLE THAT'S IN THE SAME ROOM WORSHIPPING TOGETHER
  • 20:17 AND JUST CHANGING THE ATMOSPHERE SO THAT THERE CAN BE A LITTLE BIT MORE DIALOGUE.
  • 20:20 AND JUST TO SEE... LIKE LAST YEAR WE HAD A WORSHIP EVENT
  • 20:24 JUST TO SEE LIKE ARAB BELIEVERS GETTING UP ON THE SHOULDERS OF A JEWISH PERSON AND DANCING AROUND
  • 20:29 LIKE A WEDDING...
  • 20:30 TO ME, JUST SEEING THAT KIND OF ATMOSPHERE...
  • 20:35 I DON'T THINK OUR VIEWERS REALLY UNDERSTAND THAT THERE'S A MOVEMENT HERE IN ISRAEL
  • 20:39 FOR JEWS AND ARABS ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE TO WORSHIP TOGETHER AND TO COME TO KNOW EACH OTHER.
  • 20:44 AND YOU KNOW TO BE HONEST I WISH IT WAS MORE PREVALENT THAN IT IS RIGHT NOW.
  • 20:49 AND RIGHT NOW I'M SEEING SEEDS HERE AND THERE
  • 20:51 AND I WISH IT WAS MORE PREVALENT BUT I SEE IT HAPPENING MORE AND MORE
  • 20:56 AND IT'S JUST EXCITING TO SEE PEOPLE EVEN BEING WILLING TO SING IN THE LANGUAGE OF YOUR ENEMY QUOTE UN-QUOTE.
  • 21:04 IT'S AN AMAZING THING TO SEE.
  • 21:06 SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY TODAY THAT THE PROMISES ARE OVER...
  • 21:10 YOU KNOW, FOR ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB...
  • 21:12 THE PROMISES ARE DONE AWAY.
  • 21:14 DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING THAT YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THAT?
  • 21:16 IT'S NOT OVER.
  • 21:17 NOT OVER
  • 21:18 I THINK IT INCLUDES EVERYONE,
  • 21:19 NOT JUST THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS WELL
  • 21:21 BUT EVERYONE WHO ACCEPTS YESHUA AS THEIR SAVIOR IS PART OF IT.
  • 21:27 YEAH...ABRAHAM WAS THE FATHER OF FAITH
  • 21:29 AND THAT PROMISE WENT TO ALL NATIONS.
  • 21:31 IT STARTED WITH ABRAHAM; WENT THROUGH ISAAC AND JACOB AND ALSO INCLUDING ESAU.
  • 21:36 YOU KNOW WE'VE REALLY BEEN EMPHASIZING THAT GOD HAS A DESTINY FOR THE PEOPLE...
  • 21:39 THE ARAB PEOPLE AND OUR MESSAGE IS LOVE.
  • 21:43 YES, EXACTLY
  • 21:44 I KNOW YOURS IS TOO
  • 21:46 SO DO YOU WORK HERE IN ISRAEL?
  • 21:47 I WORK AT A SECURITY.
  • 21:50 IT'S A GOOD EXPERIENCE
  • 21:52 AND IT'S ALSO I THINK AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO SHARE MORE ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD
  • 21:57 BOTH JEWISH AND THE ARAB NATION.
  • 21:59 I ALSO AM LOVING THE ARAB NATION AS WELL.
  • 22:03 I HAVE MANY FRIENDS
  • 22:04 AND I TRY TO SHARE AS MUCH AS I CAN.
  • 22:06 THAT IS AWESOME.
  • 22:08 DO YOU HAVE ANY MESSAGE FOR AMERICA HOW WE COULD STAND WITH ISRAEL
  • 22:12 OR PRAY FOR THE BELIEVERS HERE IN THE LAND?
  • 22:15 YEAH...IT'S TO KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS
  • 22:19 AND THAT WE WOULD BE MORE WILLING TO LOVE OUR ENEMIES AS WELL
  • 22:24 BECAUSE IT'S AN ODD SITUATION AND WE'RE LIKE ON BOTH SIDES
  • 22:28 AND WE DON'T KNOW WHO TO REALLY FOLLOW THE MOST
  • 22:32 AND WE'RE ALWAYS REMEMBERING THAT IN THE BIBLE IT IS WRITTEN WE SHOULD LOVE OUR ENEMIES AS WELL.
  • 22:38 SO WE DO NEED PRAYER OF THAT AND THAT WE WILL ACTUALLY BE IN ONE.
  • 22:44 AND RIGHT THERE I FELT LIKE...
  • 22:46 I DON'T KNOW...
  • 22:47 I CAN CALL IT THE HOLY SPIRIT...
  • 22:48 I CAN CALL IT SOMETHING...
  • 22:50 THE RUACH HA-KODESH
  • 22:51 BUT I FELT LIKE PERFECT TIME, PERFECT PLACE.
  • 22:53 I FELT THE RIGHT TIME, THE RIGHT PLACE...
  • 22:55 EVERYTHING WAS THE BEST MOMENT
  • 22:58 AND THIS IS WHERE I THINK THAT I DID THE DECISION OF MOVING FROM WHERE I WAS BETWEEN THE JUDAISM, BELIEVING IN GOD,
  • 23:06 NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT M'LACHA AND STARTING TO GO AFTER JESUS.
  • 23:12 IT'S REALLY AN AMAZING STORY BECAUSE A LOT LIKE ISAAC AND JACOB'S STORY.
  • 23:16 GOD'S ORDERING YOUR STEPS AND HE'S BRINGING YOU INTO THESE SUPERNATURAL EXPERIENCES
  • 23:21 TO PREPARE YOU TO SAY "YES" TO YESHUA.
  • 23:24 AND YOU'RE STILL COMPLETELY JEWISH.
  • 23:25 THAT DOES NOT CHANGE.
  • 23:27 YOU'RE AS JEWISH AS YOU'VE EVER BEEN
  • 23:28 AND MAYBE MORE SO WITH MESHIACH
  • 23:30 BUT VERY NORMAL, VERY TYPICAL.
  • 23:32 SO WHAT'S YOUR HOPE FOR AMERICAN YOUNG PEOPLE?
  • 23:37 WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THEM REGARDING ISRAEL?
  • 23:40 WHAT DO THEY NEED TO HEAR ABOUT ISRAEL AND THE SPIRITUAL LIFE HERE?
  • 23:45 ANYTHING YOU WANT TO TELL THEM?
  • 23:47 OKAY...BASICALLY ISRAEL IS A UNIQUE PLACE.
  • 23:49 AND THIS IS FUNNY BECAUSE EVERYBODY CAN SEE IT.
  • 23:53 IT'S LIKE SO SMALL PLACE ON EARTH AND MAKES SO MUCH NOISE AROUND THE WORLD
  • 23:58 AND I DON'T KNOW WHY
  • 24:02 BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING IN AFRICA BUT NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT.
  • 24:06 SO THIS IS SHOWING US THAT ALL THE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE LOOKING TO HERE
  • 24:12 AND IF WE LOOK BACK IN THE PAST
  • 24:17 WE CAN FIND OUT THAT WHEN THE ISRAELITES WASN'T HERE IN THIS LAND,
  • 24:20 THIS LAND WAS DYING AND WASN'T SUCCESS, WASN'T CALLED THE MILK AND HONEY LAND.
  • 24:25 AND ONLY WHEN ISRAEL WAS HERE UNDER GOD'S BLESSING AND FOLLOWING GOD IN A CERTAIN WAY
  • 24:32 THIS LAND HAD A LOT OF FRUITS.
  • 24:35 AND STILL TODAY WE HAVE A LOT OF FRUITS,
  • 24:38 I BELIEVE WE CAN MAKE THEM MUCH MORE BETTER
  • 24:41 AND WE ARE AS JEWISH...
  • 24:44 AS PEOPLE STOPPING IT A LITTLE BIT BUT I HOPE SO IN THE FUTURE IT WILL CHANGE.
  • 24:50 AND I WANT THEM TO BE ENCOURAGED THAT ISRAEL LIFE STILL TODAY AFTER SO MANY YEARS
  • 24:59 IT'S MEANT SOMETHING AND IT'S SHOWING US GOD'S PROMISE.
  • 25:04 THAT'S PERFECT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH
  • 25:09 I HOPE YOU REALIZE THE IMPORT OF MEETING WITH THESE YOUNG MESSIANIC BELIEVERS.
  • 25:13 IT IS A FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S WORD TO EZEKIEL THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
  • 25:17 "I WILL BRING YOU UP OUT OF YOUR GRAVES."
  • 25:19 HE SAYS THAT MORE THAN ONCE.
  • 25:21 "AND I'LL PLANT YOU IN YOUR OWN LAND."
  • 25:22 HE SAYS THAT MORE THAN ONCE.
  • 25:24 "AND THEN I WILL SPRINKLE WATER UPON YOU."
  • 25:26 THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE SEEING.
  • 25:29 WHEN YOU MEET THESE YOUNG PEOPLE YOU'RE SEEING THE SPIRIT OF GOD ALIVE IN YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE LAND TODAY LOOKING FOR THE KING.
  • 25:36 IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 25:37 IT WAS CONVICTING EVEN, THEIR LOVE FOR THEIR ENEMIES.
  • 25:40 YOU KNOW A LOT OF THEM HAVE TO FIGHT IN THE WAR
  • 25:43 AND YET THEY HAVE A LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE HAVING TO DEFEND THEIR OWN LAND FOR.
  • 25:49 I MEAN THEY'RE REACHING THE ARABIC PEOPLE.
  • 25:52 YEAH...IT'S REALLY CHRIST-LIKE, MESSIANIC-LIKE
  • 25:54 THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO LOVE THROUGH THE DIFFICULTIES OFTHE POLITICAL REALM.
  • 25:59 THEY SEE THE DEEPER PICTURE.
  • 26:01 THEY SEE WHAT GOD IS ACTUALLY DOING.
  • 26:03 SO THERE'S THAT REACH FOR RECONCILIATION.
  • 26:05 IT'S JUST A THRILL TO BE AROUND THEM.
  • 26:08 AND THEN SPEAKING OF JACOB FROM WHICH ALL THE 12 TRIBES CAME.
  • 26:12 GOD GAVE HIM A DREAM.
  • 26:15 HE ANOINTED THE STONE AND GOD GAVE HIM A DREAM OF THIS ACCESS TO HEAVEN.
  • 26:19 HE DIDN'T GIVE IT TO ABRAHAM.
  • 26:21 HE DIDN'T GIVE IT TO ISAAC.
  • 26:22 HE GAVE IT TO JACOB BECAUSE OUT OF JACOB,
  • 26:24 OUT OF ISRAEL WOULD COME THE 12 TRIBES WHICH THE CHURCH WAS BIRTHED OUT OF.
  • 26:29 JESUS IS THE ROCK.
  • 26:31 YES...HE'S THE ROCK.
  • 26:33 HE IS THE FIRST FRUITS.
  • 26:35 HE'S THE FIRST BORN OF MANY BRETHREN
  • 26:37 AND THESE MESSIANIC BELIEVERS ARE THE REMNANT THAT'S IN THE LAND TODAY,
