Caption transcript for Sons of Promise: “Dor V’dor (from generation to generation)” (8/8)

  • 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
  • 00:45 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.
  • 01:06 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 01:08 AND I'M KATHARINE.
  • 01:09 WE WELCOME YOU BACK TO THE "SONS OF PROMISE".
  • 01:11 WOW, I'M ALMOST SAD TO SEE THIS END.
  • 01:13 IT'S BEEN SUCH A GREAT SERIES
  • 01:15 THE WAY WE'VE SEEN THE PROMISES COME TO THE JEWS AND THROUGH THE JEWS.
  • 01:18 TO THE JEWS AND THROUGH THE JEWS TO THE WORLD
  • 01:20 IT SAYS IN ROMANS 9:4 THAT GOD GAVE THE ISRAELITES THE ADOPTION, THE GLORY,
  • 01:27 THE COVENANTS, THE GIVING OF THE LAW, THE SERVICE
  • 01:30 AND THE PROMISE WHICH IS CHRIST OVER ALL THROUGH THE JEWS.
  • 01:36 REMEMBER THAT JESUS AT THE WOMAN OF THE WELL IN JOHN 4
  • 01:38 HE SAYS SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS.
  • 01:40 AND WE SEE THAT...
  • 01:42 IT'S SO FASCINATING TO ME TO SEE THAT IS A SPIRITUAL SALVATION THAT COMES THROUGH MESSIAH
  • 01:46 BUT ALSO TO SEE THAT GOD IS SO GENEROUS THAT NOT ONLY DOES HE SEND YESHUA TO THE WORLD
  • 01:51 BUT HE ALSO OPENS UP THE BLESSING OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY AND MEDICINE THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE...
  • 01:57 DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBER OF SCIENCE NOBEL PRIZES GOING TO THIS SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE
  • 02:03 IN ORDER TO BLESS THE WORLD BECAUSE GOD IS A COVENANT KEEPING GOD AND HE BLESSES US.
  • 02:08 AND SO AS WE GO TO OUR DRAMA TODAY
  • 02:09 WE'RE GOING TO SEE THE CONFLICT INCREASING BETWEEN JACOB AND ESAU,
  • 02:13 THE HOPE FOR RECONCILIATION THAT'S THERE, AND ABOVE ALL WHAT HAPPENS TO JACOB
  • 02:17 AS HE BEGINS TO ENCOUNTER GOD AT A DEEPER LEVEL.
  • 02:25 IT HAD BEEN NEARLY TWENTY-ONE YEARS SINCE JACOB HAD SEEN HIS TWIN BROTHER ESAU
  • 02:30 AND NOW ON HIS JOURNEY BACK THROUGH CANAAN HE IS TROUBLED BY A MESSAGE
  • 02:35 WARNING HIM THAT ESAU IS COMING WITH 400 MEN.
  • 02:40 BECAUSE OF JACOB ESAU HAD LOST HIS BIRTHRIGHT AS WELL AS HIS FATHER'S BLESSING.
  • 02:45 BENT ON REVENGE HE HAD ONCE SWORN TO SLAY HIS BROTHER JACOB.
  • 03:51 THE CONFLICT IS INCREASING BETWEEN JACOB AND ESAU IN THE DRAMA
  • 03:54 AND WE REALLY SEE IT IN THE WORD.
  • 03:56 LISTEN TO THIS IN THE HEBREW
  • 03:57 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:07 GOD IS BEING CALLED UPON BY JACOB
  • 04:09 BECAUSE HE KNOWS THAT ESAU HAS INCREASED,
  • 04:11 HE HAS 400 MEN WITH HIM
  • 04:13 AND A FEW CHAPTERS FROM NOW THERE'S GOING TO BE A CONFLICT THAT HE IS DREADING.
  • 04:17 IT'S GOING TO HAVE A GREAT OUTCOME BUT HE'S DREADING IT RIGHT NOW.
  • 04:20 THERE'S SUCH A CHANGE THAT COMES OVER THE SONS OF ESAU THE SONS OF ISHMAEL WHEN THEY COME TO KNOW YESHUA.
  • 04:26 THEY'RE FILLED WITH LIGHT AND WITH GOD.
  • 04:29 IT'S JUST SUCH A PRECIOUS CONNECTION THAT WE HAVE WITH THEM.
  • 04:32 NAIM IN BETHLEHEM
  • 04:34 AND WALID ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 04:35 AND OUR BROTHER YOUSEF UP IN CARMEL;
  • 04:38 THESE MEN ARE JUST A SIGN AND A WONDER IN TODAY'S WORLD
  • 04:43 BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALLOWED THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB AND THE LIGHT OF YESHUA
  • 04:48 TO SO FILL THEM UP THAT THEY ARE EXAMPLES TO EVERYONE ABOUT A COMMITMENT TO ISRAEL,
  • 04:56 TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND TO ONENESS BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS.
  • 05:00 I JOKE WITH WALID SHOEBAT, HE'S AN EX-PLO TERRORIST,
  • 05:04 I JOKE WITH HIM THAT HE LOVES THE JEWS MORE THAN I DO,
  • 05:07 AND I'M JEWISH.
  • 05:08 WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS HE HAS HAD A TRANSFORMATION IN HIS LIFE
  • 05:12 THAT IS SO PRECIOUS FROM THE HATE THAT HE WAS RAISED ON TO THE LOVE THAT HE WALKS IN NOW.
  • 05:17 PEOPLE ALWAYS SPECULATE ABOUT THE SPECKLED GOATS AND SHEEP
  • 05:22 AND ALL THE CRAZINESS BETWEEN LABAN AND JACOB
  • 05:25 BUT WAS THIS SOME KIND OF COSMIC GENETIC ENGINEERING THAT JACOB WAS AWARE OF, NO,
  • 05:30 WHAT IT WAS, WAS AN ACT OF SOME KIND BUT THE REALITY IS THAT IT WAS SOVEREIGN GOD BLESSING HIM
  • 05:36 JUST AS IT'S BEEN SOVEREIGN GOD BLESSING THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 05:40 JACOB WENT AWAY TO THE WEST AND SO IT IS WITH THE GOSPEL.
  • 05:44 THE GOSPEL WENT WEST AND IS GOING AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 05:47 IT'S RISING IN THE EAST IN CHINA AND ASIA WITH THE "BACK TO JERUSALEM" MOVEMENT.
  • 05:51 THEY'RE LOOKING TO BRING THE GOSPEL THROUGH THE MUSLIM WORLD AND BACK INTO JERUSALEM...
  • 05:57 POWERFUL BELIEVERS WHO ARE AFRAID OF NOTHING.
  • 06:00 THEY LEAVE CHINA WITH JUST A HEART FULL OF GOD READY TO FACE WHATEVER THEY NEED TO.
  • 06:05 SO, WHEN YOU AND I SUBMIT TO A SOVEREIGN GOD HE CAN DIRECT OUR PATH AS WELL.
  • 06:11 WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

  • 06:41 PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
  • 06:49 THINKING IT BEST THAT HE APPEASE HIS BROTHER
  • 06:52 JACOB MET WITH HIS SERVANTS SAYING,
  • 06:54 "MAYBE ESAU WILL FORGIVE ME AND ACCEPT ME IF I PRESENT HIM GIFTS."
  • 06:59 SPECIALLY SELECTED HERDS OF ANIMALS WOULD BE GATHERED AND SENT AHEAD OF THEIR PERSONAL MEETING.
  • 07:06 HIS WIVES, MAIDS AND CHILDREN WOULD ALSO PROCEED JACOB.
  • 07:10 BUT FIRST, THAT VERY EVENING, THERE WOULD BE A REMARKABLE ENCOUNTER WITH THE DIVINE.
  • 07:17 IT WOULD CHANGE JACOB'S LIFE FOREVER.
  • 08:17 THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PASSAGES IN THE TANAKH, IN THE TORAH,
  • 08:21 WHERE JACOB WRESTLES WITH THE ANGEL, THE MAN OF GOD, WITH THE LORD, AND IS TRANSFORMED,
  • 08:28 HE'S TOUCHED BY GOD AND HE'S TRANSFORMED AND THIS WRESTLING IS SUCH AN AMAZING WORD
  • 08:33 BECAUSE IT REALLY IS CONNECTED TO THE ACTUAL PLACE AND THE EVENT.
  • 08:38 THE WORD FOR THE RIVER, JABBOK IN OUR ENGLISH, IS YABBOK
  • 08:42 AND THEN "WRESTLING" IS "ABBAK"
  • 08:44 AND EMBRACE IS "HABBAK".
  • 08:47 SO THESE WORDS ARE COMPLETELY CONNECTED IN TERMS OF WHAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 08:50 HE'S WRESTLING AT THIS PLACE
  • 08:52 BUT HE'S BEING EMBRACED BY GOD FOR HIS FUTURE
  • 08:55 AND HE'S GOING TO BE TOUCHED AND BE TRANSFORMED
  • 08:59 BECAUSE GOD INTENDS HIM TO WALK IN DEPENDENCE ON HIMSELF
  • 09:04 AND SO HE'S NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO WALK IN HIS JACOB STRENGTH ANYMORE.
  • 09:07 IN FACT, ISAIAH 43:1 SAYS ELOQUENTLY,
  • 09:10 "JACOB I HAVE CREATED BUT ISRAEL I HAVE FORMED".
  • 09:14 AND ISN'T THAT OUR STORY?
  • 09:16 GOD FINDS US AS JACOB
  • 09:18 AND THEN HE TOUCHES US IN A WAY THAT WE BECOME MORE AND MORE DEPENDENT ON HIM
  • 09:22 AND OUR NATURAL STRENGTH IS NOT ENOUGH
  • 09:25 AND THEN WE ARE ABLE TO WALK WITH HIM WITH MAYBE A SPIRITUAL LIMP
  • 09:30 BUT SOMETHING ON THE INSIDE THAT SAYS, GOD I NEED YOU,
  • 09:33 I NEED YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
  • 09:35 AND THAT'S WHAT THIS IS ABOUT.
  • 09:36 THIS VERY PLACE THAT IT TAKES PLACE, THIS WRESTLING
  • 09:40 TAKES PLACE AT THE RIVER YABBOK, JABBOK,
  • 09:42 AND IT'S IN AMMAN, NEAR AMMAN, JORDAN.
  • 09:45 IT'S NOW CALLED THE WADDI ZEMKA.
  • 09:47 AND THE TRANSFORMATION THAT TAKES PLACE IS A FACE TO FACE ENCOUNTER.
  • 09:52 IT'S "PENIEL", IT'S A "FACE TO FACE ENCOUNTER" WHICH I LOVE
  • 09:56 BECAUSE THAT VERY WORD COMES UP IN THE AARONIC BLESSING
  • 09:59 AND COMES UP IN THE FACE TO FACE ENCOUNTER THAT GOD WANTS TO HAVE WITH YOU AND WITH ME.
  • 10:05 AND ISN'T THAT WHAT JACOB'S STORY TEACHES US?
  • 10:08 WE NEED TO COME TO THE LORD.
  • 10:09 WE NEED TO ALLOW HIM TO TOUCH US
  • 10:11 AND WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO TURN TO HIM EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
  • 10:15 IN DEPENDENCE ON HIM AND NOT ON OUR NATURAL SELVES.
  • 10:19 WE'LL BE BACK AFTER THIS.
  • 10:59 ISRAEL IS A LAND OF COVENANT,
  • 11:02 IT'S A LAND FULL OF PROMISES.
  • 11:05 AND WE'D LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO COME WITH US.
  • 11:07 WHEN YOU COME TO ISRAEL THE WORD OF GOD GOES DEEP INTO YOU
  • 11:11 AND YOU GO DEEP INTO THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 11:14 YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 11:15 SO WE INVITE YOU TO COME.
  • 11:17 IF YOU CAN'T MAKE IT WITH US GO WITH SOMEBODY
  • 11:19 BECAUSE IT'S A TRIP OF A LIFETIME.
  • 11:21 WE JUST WOULD LOVE YOU TO JOIN US.
  • 11:24 WOULDN'T WE MYLES?
  • 11:25 YES, IT IS LIFE-CHANGING.
  • 11:27 THAT'S THE REPORT WE HEAR EVERY TIME WE GO.
  • 11:29 AND EVERY TIME WE GO WE GET CHANGED AS WELL.
  • 11:31 IT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 11:33 YOU KNOW, OUR RESOURCE THIS WEEK IS THIS WONDERFUL PROMISED SEED OF ABRAHAM GENEALOGY CHART.
  • 11:37 THIS IS VERY UNIQUE.
  • 11:38 IT'S DIFFERENT FROM SOME OF THE OTHER CHARTS YOU'VE SEEN
  • 11:40 BECAUSE WHAT WE'VE DONE IS LEAVE SOME SPACES IN THERE
  • 11:43 FOR YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS THAT HAVE BEEN GRAFTED-IN TO THE VINE OF YESHUA
  • 11:47 AND THOSE THAT YOU'RE PRAYING FOR TO COME TO FAITH IN YESHUA.
  • 11:50 WE INVITE YOU TO GET IN TOUCH WITH US TO RECEIVE ONE OF THESE.
  • 11:53 NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO OUR STORY
  • 11:56 AND WE'RE SEEING THE NAME CHANGE THAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN WITH JACOB.
  • 12:00 JACOB IS BEING TRANSFORMED
  • 12:03 AND HE IS ENCOUNTERING GOD IN DEEPER AND DEEPER WAYS THROUGHOUT THIS STORY.
  • 12:08 AND IT'S SUCH A PICTURE FOR US AS THE BODY OF MESSIAH
  • 12:11 BECAUSE HE CALLS US AS WE ARE AND THEN HE WORKS ON US TO FORM US TO LOOK MORE LIKE HIM.
  • 12:17 SO LET'S PICK UP OUR STORY.
  • 12:23 JACOB WAS RELIEVED.
  • 12:25 THANKFULLY HIS MEETING WITH ESAU HAD BEEN CORDIAL AND WITHOUT INCIDENT.
  • 12:30 WHILE ESAU RETURNED TO THE HILLS OF EDOM,
  • 12:33 JACOB JOURNEYED ON THROUGH CANAAN STOPPING AT SUCCOTH, SHECHEM AND BETHEL.
  • 12:40 IT WAS HERE IN BETHEL THAT JACOB HAD PREVIOUSLY ANOINTED A STONE
  • 12:45 TO MARK THE PLACE HE CALLED THE GATEWAY TO HEAVEN.
  • 12:49 THIS "HOUSE OF GOD" HAD BEEN THE SITE OF HIS DREAM
  • 12:52 IN WHICH HE SAW ANGELS ASCENDING AND DESCENDING A HEAVENLY LADDER.
  • 12:57 HERE IN BETHEL JACOB WOULD ONCE AGAIN HEAR THE VOICE OF THE LORD.
  • 13:05 AND GOD SAID UNTO JACOB, "I HAVE CHANGED YOUR NAME TO ISRAEL."
  • 13:10 "I AM EL SHADDAI."
  • 13:12 "BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY."
  • 13:14 "A NATION, INDEED A GROUP OF NATIONS WILL COME FROM YOU."
  • 13:18 "KINGS WILL BE DESCENDED FROM YOU."
  • 13:20 "AND THE LAND WHICH I GAVE TO ABRAHAM AND ISAAC, TO THEE I WILL GIVE IT,"
  • 13:25 "AND TO THY SEED AFTER THEE WILL I GIVE THE LAND."
  • 13:32 THIS ROAD HAD BEEN WELL TRAVELED.
  • 13:35 JACOB'S GRANDFATHER, ABRAHAM, HAD WALKED IT...STARTING IN UR, THEN HARAN,
  • 13:41 THEN ON AS AN ALIEN THROUGH THE LAND OF CANAAN.
  • 13:46 HIS FATHER ISAAC HAD WALKED IT...THIS ROAD OF FAITH.
  • 13:49 YES, IT HAD SOME DIFFICULT TURNS, SOME NARROW PASSAGE WAYS,
  • 13:54 BUT IN THE END IT CARVED ITS WAY TO A BETTER PLACE.
  • 14:00 THIS ROAD WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED AS THE ONE OF REDEMPTION...
  • 14:05 OF PRAISE AND CELEBRATION TO THE GOD OF ISRAEL, WHO TRANSCENDS ALL TIME.
  • 14:25 THAT IS THE SOUNDS OF JOY...SIMCHA, SIMCHA!
  • 14:28 GOD IS SO GOOD
  • 14:29 AND HE'S BROUGHT HIS PEOPLE BACK TO THE LAND
  • 14:31 AND GOD'S FACE IS SMILING ON THIS LAND.
  • 14:35 WE'VE SEEN SUCH A STRUGGLE WITH JACOB AS HE'S OVERCOME HIS OWN WEAKNESSES
  • 14:40 AND GOD HAS TRANSFORMED HIM
  • 14:42 AND MADE HIM AN OVERCOMER
  • 14:44 AND MADE HIM ISRAEL.
  • 14:46 WE SEE SUCH A PARALLEL WITH THE LIFE OF THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 14:49 THERE'S REALLY A LOT OF SIMILARITY WE'VE SHOWN TO YOU
  • 14:51 BETWEEN JACOB THE MAN AND ISRAEL THE PEOPLE
  • 14:54 AND WE ALSO SEE THAT GOD IS ALWAYS INTENDED FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.
  • 14:59 IN FACT, EZEKIEL 36:19 TELLS US
  • 15:02 THAT WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE OUT OF THE LAND GOD'S NAME IS PROFANED
  • 15:06 BECAUSE HE ALWAYS INTENDED US TO BE HERE
  • 15:09 AND HE NEVER INTENDED OTHER GODS AND OTHER WAYS TO BE IN THIS LAND
  • 15:13 AND HE'S GOING TO COME BACK TO A JEWISH JERUSALEM.
  • 15:15 WE SEE BEHIND US THE EASTERN GATE.
  • 15:18 WE KNOW THAT YESHUA IS GOING TO COME DOWN ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
  • 15:21 WALK THROUGH THIS EASTERN GATE
  • 15:23 AND CELEBRATION WILL FOLLOW AS THE MILLENNIAL REIGN WILL BEGIN.
  • 15:27 IT'S AN INCREDIBLE STORY.
  • 15:28 WE'VE BEEN SO BLESSED TO BRING YOU THIS STORY.
  • 15:31 AND YOU KNOW ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING PARTS OF THIS
  • 15:34 IS THAT THE FACE TO FACE ENCOUNTER THAT JACOB HAS AT THE RIVER JABBOK
  • 15:41 IS THE SAME FACE TO FACE WORD THAT GOD USES IN NUMBERS 6
  • 15:47 WHEN HE SPEAKS ABOUT BLESSING WHOEVER IS IN THE HEARING OF THE AARONIC BLESSING.
  • 15:52 IT'S AN AMAZING CONNECTION
  • 15:54 AND THE REALITY IS THAT GOD HAS ALWAYS INTENDED US TO BE DOING THIS,
  • 15:59 TO BE CELEBRATING HIS GOODNESS, CELEBRATING THE ONE NEW MAN,
  • 16:03 JEWS AND GENTILES TOGETHER IN MESSIAH.
  • 16:05 WE'RE SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE BROUGHT YOU THIS SERIES.
  • 16:08 WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO OUR VIEWERS
  • 16:10 AND WE'RE SO THANKFUL TO THE VOICES IN THE LAND THAT ARE STANDING UP FOR ISRAEL
  • 16:14 AND THE VOICES IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD THAT ARE STANDING UP FOR ISRAEL
  • 16:18 AND NOT LETTING GO OF THE TRUTH
  • 16:20 THAT GOD HAS BROUGHT ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB'S CHILDREN BACK TO THE LAND.
  • 16:25 IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE WORD THEN YOU BELIEVE THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO THIS LAND;
  • 16:30 THAT GOD'S ORDAINED THAT THEY WOULD WALK THIS LAND;
  • 16:33 THAT THEY WOULD DWELL IN THIS LAND.
  • 16:35 ALL OF EZEKIEL IS BEGINNING TO UNFOLD AS GOD HAS BROUGHT THEM BACK.
  • 16:39 HE'S RESTORED THEM.
  • 16:40 HE'S SPRINKLED CLEAN WATER ON THEM.
  • 16:42 HE'S GIVING THEM A NEW HEART
  • 16:43 AND HE'S GIVING THEM SINEW AND HE'S GIVING THEM VIBRANCY.
  • 16:46 YOU'VE SEEN AS WE'VE SHOWN YOU IN THESE SERIES THAT JERUSALEM OF TODAY, THE MODERN JERUSALEM
  • 16:51 AND IT'S SUCH A JOY TO BRING YOU THE LIFE THAT GOD HAS BROUGHT;
  • 16:55 LIFE FROM THE DEAD.
  • 16:57 I MEAN REALLY.
  • 16:58 YES IT'S AWESOME.
  • 16:59 SO WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH A BLESSING.
  • 17:01 THIS IS THE TRADITIONAL AARONIC BLESSING.
  • 17:03 I AM A COHEN ON MY MOM'S SIDE.
  • 17:05 I WANT TO BRING YOU THIS BLESSING AND LEAVE THIS WITH YOU.
  • 17:08 TAKE THIS WHEREVER YOU GO.
  • 17:09 (MYLES SINGING) Y' VA-RE-CHE-CHA ADONAI V'YISH-MIRE-CHA
  • 17:13 YA-ER ADONAI PANAV ELEI-CHA IHU-NECHA
  • 17:18 YI-SAH ADONAI PANAV ELEI-CHA
  • 17:22 V'YA-SEM L'CHA SHALOM
  • 17:30 THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU
  • 17:32 THE LORD LIFT HIS FACE UPON YOU
  • 17:34 BE GRACIOUS UNTO YOU;
  • 17:35 LIFE HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GRANT YOU HIS SHALOM,
  • 17:40 THE HASHEM, YESHUA
  • 17:42 AMEN
  • 17:55 I'M ALWAYS BLESSED MYSELF WHEN I GET A CHANCE TO PRAY THE AARONIC BLESSING OVER ANYONE
  • 18:01 BECAUSE IT'S ACTUALLY HOW WE ENDED OUR SERVICES IN OUR CONGREGATION.
  • 18:05 IT REALLY IS SOMETHING THAT GOD GAVE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR GENERATIONS AND GENERATIONS.
  • 18:10 IN OTHER WORDS IT IS A SUBSTANTIVE WHENEVER THAT PRAYER IS PRAYED
  • 18:13 BECAUSE IT HAS WITHIN IT THE VERY LANGUAGE THAT JACOB USED WHEN HE ENCOUNTERS GOD.
  • 18:19 HE CALLS THIS PLACE PENIEL BECAUSE HE'S HAD A FACE-TO-FACE ENCOUNTER;
  • 18:24 THE SAME LANGUAGE STEMS THAT ARE IN THE AARONIC BLESSING
  • 18:27 BECAUSE THAT BRINGS US INTO THE FACE-TO-FACE ENCOUNTER WITH THE LORD
  • 18:31 AND THAT'S WHAT GOD DESIRES FOR US.
  • 18:32 HE WANTS US TO HAVE THIS TRANSFORMING ENCOUNTER WITH HIM.
  • 18:36 THAT'S WHAT THIS SERIES IS REALLY ABOUT.
  • 18:38 GOD KEEPS HIS COVENANTS AND HE TRANSFORMS US BY OUR ENCOUNTERS WITH HIM.
  • 18:43 AND THOSE ARE AVAILABLE TO US BECAUSE OF THE WORK OF YESHUA AT THE CROSS.
  • 18:48 IT'S AMAZING TO ME THAT IN THE SCRIPTURES IN ISAIAH 43
  • 18:52 GOD SPEAKS ABOUT JACOB AND THE CHANGE THAT CAME TO HIM.
  • 18:56 HE'S SAYS THIS IN THE HEBREW
  • 18:58 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 19:05 WHICH MEANS "JACOB I HAVE CREATED BUT ISRAEL I HAVE FORMED."
  • 19:11 IN OTHER WORDS YOU WERE BORN IN THE NATURAL WORLD WITH A NATURAL LIFE
  • 19:16 BUT WHEN YOU COME TO YESHUA GOD BREATHES HIS SPIRIT ON YOU AND YOU BECOME ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 19:23 FOR JACOB HE BECAME ISRAEL.
  • 19:25 IN OTHER WORDS RATHER THAN BEING A DECEIVER AND A SUPPLANTOR,
  • 19:29 HE BECAME A PRINCE WITH GOD.
  • 19:31 AND FOR YOU AND ME WHEREVER GOD FINDS US HE BREATHES HIS LIFE INTO US
  • 19:34 AND THEN WE SAY "YES" AND HE TRANSFORMED US INTO SOMEONE NEW.
  • 19:39 THAT'S HOW GOD WORKS.
  • 19:40 SOMEONE NEW...BEAUTIFUL
  • 19:42 SPEAKING OF THE SONS OF PROMISE
  • 19:44 MYLES HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF SITTING DOWN WITH OUR OLDEST SON
  • 19:46 AND HAD A CHANCE TO SHARE HIS FAITH AND HIS JOURNEY OF BEING RAISED IN A JEWISH HOME
  • 19:52 WITH CHRISTIAN UNDERSTANDING IN THE ONE NEW MAN.
  • 19:55 SO WE'RE GOING TO GO NOW TO HEAR THAT.
  • 19:59 JOHN THANKS FOR BEING HERE TODAY.
  • 20:01 CAN YOU TELL OUR VIEWERS WHAT IT WAS LIKE GROWING UP IN A FAITH BASED HOUSEHOLD?
  • 20:06 YES, GROWING UP IN A FAITH BASED HOUSEHOLD DEFINITELY GAVE ME A SOLID FOUNDATION.
  • 20:13 AS I'VE GROWN ACADEMIC WISE AND PROFESSIONALLY WISE
  • 20:17 IT'S BEEN ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT I'VE USED THROUGHOUT MY TIME AS A GUIDING FORCE
  • 20:24 TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS,
  • 20:26 TO MAKE SMART DECISIONS,
  • 20:28 TO CHOOSE TO HAVE PEOPLE AROUND ME THAT ARE GOING TO INFLUENCE ME IN A POSITIVE WAY.
  • 20:33 AND I THINK THAT THOSE THINGS ARE ALL COMING FROM GROWING UP IN A FAITH BASED HOME.
  • 20:38 I REMEMBER BEING ABLE TO TAKE YOU TO ISRAEL WHEN YOU WERE 14 AND YOUR BROTHER WAS 11
  • 20:43 AND IT REALLY MADE AN IMPRESSION ON YOU.
  • 20:45 TELL OUR VIEWERS WHAT IT'S LIKE FOR A YOUNG PERSON,
  • 20:48 VERY YOUNG, TO COME TO ISRAEL.
  • 20:50 DEFINITELY THE IMPACT.
  • 20:52 JUST BEING PART OF SO MUCH HISTORY AND SUCH A DIFFERENT CULTURE WAS GREAT.
  • 21:01 I LOVE BEING PART OF NEW THINGS, NEW EXPERIENCES, SO THAT WAS HUGE FOR ME.
  • 21:06 BUT DEEPER THAN THAT WAS BEING PART OF THAT CONNECTION TO THE BIBLE,
  • 21:11 SEEING THESE VERSES THAT I'D BEEN RAISED UP READING AND MEMORIZING
  • 21:16 AND THEN SEEING THE ACTUAL LOCATION AND SEEING WHERE THE HISTORY HAPPENED WAS JUST SO POWERFUL.
  • 21:23 HOW DOES THE LIFE OF GOD THAT'S BEEN PUT IN YOU AND THAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING NOW,
  • 21:28 HOW DOES THAT AFFECT YOUR ACADEMIC WORLD AND YOUR FUTURE PROFESSIONAL LIFE?
  • 21:32 I FEEL AS THOUGH MY CONNECTION WITH GOD AND MY RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 21:39 IS DIRECTLY AFFECTING NOT ONLY ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL
  • 21:43 BUT MY PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH FRIENDS, WITH PROFESSORS, WITH PEOPLE IN MY COMMUNITY.
  • 21:50 I JUST FEEL THAT IT'S HELPING ME GROW TO HIGHER LEVELS OF ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT ASPECTS.
  • 21:58 AND IF YOU COULD SAY SOMETHING TO PEOPLE YOUR OWN AGE ABOUT ISRAEL,
  • 22:04 ABOUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE, ABOUT CHRISTIANITY, BIBLE,
  • 22:07 JESUS, YESHUA, WHATEVER IT IS...
  • 22:09 WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY TO YOUNG PEOPLE WHO MAY BE SEEING THIS?
  • 22:12 I WOULD TELL PEOPLE MY AGE OR YOUNGER, OLDER BUT THIS GENERATION,
  • 22:16 JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE PUSHING YOURSELF,
  • 22:19 YOU ARE PUSHING YOURSELF FOR THE NAME OF GOD IF POSSIBLE.
  • 22:23 YOU WILL GROW SO MUCH MORE.
  • 22:26 HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.
  • 22:30 WELL THIS SERIES IS CALLED THE SONS OF PROMISE AND YOU JONATHAN ARE A SON OF PROMISE.
  • 22:37 THANKS FOR BEING HERE.
  • 22:39 THANK YOU
  • 22:39 LOVE YOU >>LOVE YOU TOO
  • 22:43 IT WAS SUCH AN HONOR FOR ME TO HAVE MY OWN SON THERE AS A SON OF PROMISE
  • 22:47 AND TO BE ABLE TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON FOR HIM IN HIS LIFE.
  • 22:50 SINCE THE TIME OF INTERVIEW HE'S ACTUALLY HAD A CHANCE TO
  • 22:52 MAKE SOME VERY STRONG STANDS FOR YESHUA AND FOR ISRAEL ON HIS COLLEGE CAMPUS.
  • 22:58 WE SEE THAT GENERATION IS REALLY RISING UP.
  • 23:01 RIGHT, IN THE FACE OF AN ONSLAUGHT AGAINST A POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
  • 23:06 WE NEED TO BE BIBLICALLY CORRECT WHEREVER WE ARE
  • 23:09 WE NEED TO BE THAT SALT AND LIGHT
  • 23:11 AND HE REALLY TOOK A STAND,
  • 23:12 SO MUCH SO THAT THE TEACHERS CAME UP TO HIM AND SAID,
  • 23:14 WE'VE NEVER SEEN A PRESENTATION SO STRONG FOR ISRAEL.
  • 23:18 SO THAT WAS A THRILL FOR BOTH OF US.
  • 23:20 YES IT WAS
  • 23:22 YOU KNOW WE SEE THE DOR V'DOR, GENERATION TO GENERATION, OF THIS STORY.
  • 23:26 I LIKE THE WAY YOU TALK ABOUT ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 23:31 RIGHT, ABRAHAM WAS A MAN OF ALTARS
  • 23:33 AND ISAAC WAS A MAN OF WELLS
  • 23:35 AND JACOB WAS A MAN OF TENTS.
  • 23:37 AND IT WAS REBEKAH THAT HAD THE FIRST TWINS EVER IN HER WOMB AND SHE SAID, LORD WHAT IS HAPPENING;
  • 23:44 SHE FELT THIS WRESTLING AND THE LORD TOLD HER THERE ARE TWO NATIONS IN YOUR WOMB.
  • 23:49 YOU HAVE JACOB WHICH BECOMES ISRAEL, BLESSED OF GOD
  • 23:54 BECAUSE HE LAID HOLD, HE WRESTLED.
  • 23:56 AND THEN WE HAVE ESAU WHO IS EDOM
  • 23:59 AND THAT PLAYS OUT NOT ONLY IN THE PRESENT BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM BUT IN PROPHECY.
  • 24:06 YES IT IS THE FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY THAT WE SEE TODAY.
  • 24:08 EVERYONE'S LOOKING FOR A POLITICAL SOLUTION TO THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 24:12 BUT LISTEN TO WHAT KATHARINE SAID ABOUT ABRAHAM AS A MAN OF ALTARS.
  • 24:15 AND WE KNOW THAT THE ALTARS ARE YESHUA AS THE PLACE WHERE WE MEET WITH GOD.
  • 24:20 AND THEN ISAAC WAS A MAN OF WELLS,
  • 24:22 YESHUA AGAIN AND ISAAC AS THE PROMISED SON
  • 24:25 PICTURES THE WELLS OF LIVING WATER THAT COME FROM YESHUA HIMSELF.
  • 24:30 AND JACOB IS A MAN OF TENTS WHOSE NAME WAS CHANGED TO ISRAEL.
  • 24:34 WELL THE TENTS ALWAYS ARE ABOUT THE PRESENCE OF GOD, THE TABERNACLING OF GOD BECAUSE YESHUA IS IMMANUEL,
  • 24:41 THAT'S WHAT HE'S PROPHESIED BY ISAIAH WHO HE'S TO BE AND THAT'S WHO HE BECOMES FOR US.
  • 24:46 IN FACT; THAT'S WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO WITH HIM FOREVER IS THE TABERNACLING WITH GOD.
  • 24:52 YOU KNOW THERE'S FOUR TYPES OF WARFARE PLAYING OUT THROUGH THESE TWO LINES RIGHT NOW.
  • 24:57 THERE'S THE POLITICAL WARFARE THAT WE SEE EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD,
  • 25:00 THERE IS THE CONVENTIONAL WARFARE
  • 25:02 WHICH GOD HELP US IS ALWAYS THREATENING MILITARY WARFARE.
  • 25:05 THERE'S THE CYBER WARFARE
  • 25:08 THAT SOMETIMES IS A GREAT WAY OF PUSHING OFF CONVENTIONAL WARFARE FOR A WHILE.
  • 25:13 AND THEN THERE'S THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE
  • 25:15 THAT YOU AND I NEED TO BE INVOLVED IN AND OUR VIEWERS NEED TO BE INVOLVED IN.
  • 25:19 IN TAKING A STAND FOR THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS WILL
  • 25:23 EXACTLY BECAUSE WE DON'T WRESTLE AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD;
  • 25:25 WE'RE PRIMARILY WRESTLING AGAINST RULERS OF DARKNESS IN HIGH PLACES
  • 25:28 AND SO IT'S OUR JOB TO KNOW THE WORD
  • 25:30 AND TO BE ABLE TO PRAY FOR THE THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO GOD.
  • 25:34 ISRAEL'S GOVERNMENT IS IMPERFECT, IT'S NATURAL,
  • 25:38 THEY NEED A REVELATION FROM GOD.
  • 25:39 I THINK ABOUT THE GROUPS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE PICTURED IN THIS LINEAGE
  • 25:44 AND THE OPPOSITION THAT COMES AS WELL
  • 25:46 AND THERE'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE THAT NEED FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 25:50 WHETHER THEY ARE IN THE GOVERNMENT OR NOT TO TURN TO GOD;
  • 25:52 FOR THE ARAB CHRISTIANS TO TURN TO GOD;
  • 25:55 FOR THE JEWS IN THE LAND TO TURN TO GOD,
  • 25:59 AND FOR THE ARABS AND THE MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD TO TURN TO GOD.
  • 26:02 IT'S ALWAYS THAT SAME ISSUE.
  • 26:03 WE'RE SO PRIVILEGED THAT WE GET A CHANCE TO BRING THIS MESSAGE TO THE VIEWERS.
  • 26:09 YOU KNOW I JUST WANT TO REMIND YOU
  • 26:12 THAT THE ONLY WAY THAT WE CAN KEEP THESE PROGRAMS GOING IS BY YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS.
  • 26:16 KATHARINE AND I ARE SO BLESSED BY THIS PARTICULAR SERIES.
  • 26:20 WE LOVE EACH ONE OF THEM.
  • 26:21 THEY'RE ALL LIKE CHILDREN.
  • 26:22 EACH SERIES IS BETTER THAN THE LAST
  • 26:24 BUT WE LOVE THE SONS OF PROMISE BECAUSE IT SPEAKS SO MUCH ABOUT
  • 26:28 THE FUTURE WITH GOD THAT IS AVAILABLE TO YOU AND TO ME.
  • 26:31 WE NEED YOUR FUNDS IN ORDER TO KEEP THESE PROGRAMS ON THE AIR,
  • 26:35 IN ORDER TO KEEP THESE TOURS TO ISRAEL GOING
  • 26:37 SO PEOPLE CAN MEET WITH GOD IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING.
  • 26:41 SO WOULD YOU HELP US BY SENDING A GIFT THIS WEEK?
  • 26:43 WE THANK YOU FOR IT IN THE NAME OF YESHUA.
  • 26:46 UNTIL WE SEE YOU AGAIN, AS ALWAYS, WE WANT TO REMIND YOU,
  • 26:50 SHAL'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 26:52 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
