Episode: “Israel and World Revival,” Part 1
At the conference, Myles suggests that Jews and gentiles should aspire to a balanced view of Israel. Christians have gone too far in the past, trying to “correct” Israel. The most Jewish thing a Jewish person can do is believe in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah.
Series: “Future Congress 2”
Katharine and Myles joined a gathering in Dallas comprising Hal Lindsey, the late Jack Kinsella, Bill Koenig, and other key teachers on prophecy. Experience amazing testimonies, teachings, interviews, and roundtables with Messianic leaders.

Caption transcript for Future Congress 2: “Israel and World Revival,” Part 1 (1/7)

  • 00:03 THIS LITTLE TINY COUNTRY
  • 00:04 IS NOT GOING TO LEAVE THE CENTER OF OUR HEADLINES
  • 00:06 UNTIL THE LORD COMES.
  • 00:08 IT IS NOT GOING AWAY.
  • 00:10 THIS WILL BE THE CENTRAL ISSUE IN WORLD POLITICS UNTIL JESUS COMES.
  • 00:13 HE'S COMING BACK TO A JEWISH JERUSALEM TO SET UP A MILLENNIAL REIGN FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 00:18 AND WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE JEWISH SIDE OF THINGS AS WELL AS THE CHRISTIAN SIDE OF THINGS
  • 00:23 IN ORDER TO BE WELL BALANCED.
  • 00:40 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.
  • 00:46 FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK
  • 00:51 FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 01:06 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 01:07 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 01:08 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS
  • 01:10 AND WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR PROGRAM TODAY.
  • 01:12 AGAIN WE HAVE SOME EXCITING PROGRAMS TO BRING OUR VIEWERS MYLES.
  • 01:15 YES WE DO.
  • 01:16 WE WERE ABLE TO BE AT THE FUTURE CONGRESS 2.
  • 01:19 WE WERE THERE WITH SPEAKERS HAL LINDSEY, BILL KOENIG AND OTHERS.
  • 01:21 I WAS ABLE TO BRING A MESSAGE ON ISRAEL AND WORLD REVIVAL.
  • 01:25 JESUS LEFT TWO COMMANDMENTS WHEN HE LEFT THIS EARTH.
  • 01:29 HE TOLD THE DISCIPLES THAT THEY WOULD NOT SEE HIM AGAIN
  • 01:32 UNTIL THEY SAID "BARUCH HABA HASHEM ADONAI",
  • 01:36 "BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO COME IN THE NAME OF THE LORD".
  • 01:38 HE GAVE US THAT COMMAND TO BE LOOKING FOR HIM IN MATTHEW 23:39.
  • 01:42 HE ALSO SAID IN MATTHEW 24:14 THAT THIS GOSPEL, THIS GOOD NEWS, THIS MESSAGE
  • 01:48 WOULD BE PREACHED TO ALL THE WORLD AND THEN THE END WOULD COME.
  • 01:52 SO WE KNOW THAT THERE'S A MESSAGE IN THERE FOR ISRAEL AND ALSO FOR THE NATIONS.
  • 01:56 AND IN THE DAY IN WHICH WE'RE LIVING IT'S INCREDIBLE TO SEE
  • 01:59 THAT ISRAEL HERSELF IS BEGINNING TO SEND THE GOOD NEWS OUT AGAIN JUST AS SHE DID 2,000 YEARS AGO.
  • 02:06 SO LET'S GO NOW AND HEAR MYLES SPEAK ABOUT ISRAEL AND WORLD REVIVAL.
  • 02:13 SO ISRAEL AND WORLD REVIVAL, THE PLACE OF ISRAEL IN OUR LIVES,
  • 02:17 WE REALLY HAVE TO GO BACK 4,000 YEARS TO UNDERSTAND THIS CALLING.
  • 02:21 WE THINK OF LIFE IN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH,
  • 02:23 WE THINK OF LIFE BEGINNING AT THE CROSS.
  • 02:25 AND SO MANY CHURCHES THEY SPEAK ABOUT LIFE BEGINNING AT THE CROSS.
  • 02:28 AND WE KNOW THAT SPIRITUAL LIFE DOES BEGIN THERE FOR US WHEN WE'RE BORN AGAIN.
  • 02:33 BUT YOUR STORY BEGINS 4,000 YEARS AGO WITH THE CALL OF ABRAHAM WHICH IS INTERESTING.
  • 02:38 INSTEAD OF THE 2,000 YEAR PORTION YOU HAVE THE 4,000 YEAR PORTION.
  • 02:43 IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOU COULD HAVE THE DOUBLE PORTION.
  • 02:46 THE DOUBLE PORTION IS THE ENTRANCE OF YOUR LIFE INTO THE LIFE OF ISRAEL
  • 02:52 BECAUSE YOU'RE GRAFTED IN TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL.
  • 02:55 IT'S A 4,000 YEAR OLD STORY SO THE DOUBLE PORTION IS AVAILABLE TO YOU TODAY AND TO ME AS WELL.
  • 03:01 WE NEED TO STRIVE FOR; WE NEED TO REACH FOR THAT.
  • 03:05 WE NEED TO NOT GIVE UP
  • 03:06 EVEN THOUGH WE SEE CHURCHES LANGUISHING IN THEIR REACH FOR THIS.
  • 03:10 NOW I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS.
  • 03:12 WE WERE JUST RECENTLY BECOME CONNECTED WITH A CHURCH THAT IS ABOUT 5,000 MEMBERS
  • 03:18 WHICH IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IS A MEGA-CHURCH AND MAYBE ANYWHERE A MEGA-CHURCH.
  • 03:22 BUT IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IT IS STUPENDOUS THAT THERE ARE 5,000 PEOPLE GATHERING IN ONE PLACE...
  • 03:27 TWO CAMPUSES ACTUALLY.
  • 03:29 THIS CHURCH HAS GOTTEN THE DOWNLOAD FROM HEAVEN
  • 03:33 THAT THEY NEED TO HAVE AT THE CENTER OF THEIR LIFE A JEWISH MINISTRY.
  • 03:38 AND NOT ONLY SO, CALLING KATHARINE AND MYSELF
  • 03:40 TO BE THE PASTORS OF THEIR JEWISH MINISTRY.
  • 03:43 BUT THEY HAVE DETERMINED TO SEND THE FIRST TENTH OF A TENTH;
  • 03:47 IT'S A BEGINNING, OF ALL THEIR FINANCES TO MINISTRIES IN ISRAEL.
  • 03:52 THEY ARE PUTTING THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR MOUTH IS.
  • 03:55 THEY'RE PUTTING THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR HEART IS.
  • 03:57 I THOUGHT AS THIS CHURCH HAS COME INTO THIS CALLING
  • 04:00 AND BEGUN TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT A SIDE STREAM,
  • 04:04 THIS IS A MAIN STREAM TO GOD.
  • 04:06 THAT AS THEY'RE DOING THAT
  • 04:07 WE'RE PRAYING THAT IT'S GOING TO BE A TEMPLATE FOR OTHER CHURCHES
  • 04:10 TO REALIZE THAT IN A DAY IN WHICH WE'RE LIVING
  • 04:13 WE CANNOT MOVE FORWARD IN OUR PERSONAL WALK,
  • 04:16 WE CANNOT MOVE FORWARD IN OUR CORPORATE WALK
  • 04:18 WITHOUT GETTING THIS UNDERSTANDING IN THE CENTER OF OUR LIVES.
  • 04:22 I KNOW I'M PREACHING TO THE CHOIR HERE
  • 04:26 BUT WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE THAT NOT TO GIVE UP ON OUR PASTORS
  • 04:30 AND FRIENDS AND THOSE THAT WE KNOW IN SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP WHO YOU PRAYED FOR.
  • 04:34 THE IDEA I WANT TO GET ACROSS TO YOU TODAY, ONE OF THE IDEAS, IS TO COME HUMBLY TO THEM.
  • 04:40 COME IN LOW AND FIND THE PLACE OF SERVICE,
  • 04:42 A PLACE OF CONNECTING WITH THEM AND SERVING THEIR PURPOSES
  • 04:46 SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE A VOICE TO THEM TO SAY HAVE YOU CONSIDERED MY SERVANT ISRAEL,
  • 04:52 HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE REALITY
  • 04:54 THAT IN FACT THE RANDOM JEWISH PEOPLE ARE NOT GETTING SAVED SO CALLED
  • 04:59 BUT IN FACT WE THE GENTILE CHURCH ARE GRAFTED-IN,
  • 05:03 THE INTERNATIONAL CHURCH IS GRAFTED-IN TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL
  • 05:08 ACCORDING TO EPHESIANS CHAPTER 2.
  • 05:10 SO DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 05:13 I WANT TO SAY THAT THERE'S HOPE AS LONG AS WE'RE BREATHING
  • 05:16 AND AS LONG AS THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE RECOGNIZING THAT
  • 05:18 THERE'S NO PLACE AS WE HEARD LAST NIGHT
  • 05:22 THIS LITTLE TINY COUNTRY IS NOT GOING TO LEAVE THE CENTER OF OUR HEADLINES UNTIL THE LORD COMES.
  • 05:26 IT IS NOT GOING AWAY.
  • 05:28 THIS WILL BE THE CENTRAL ISSUE IN WORLD POLITICS UNTIL JESUS COMES.
  • 05:32 HE'S COMING BACK TO A JEWISH JERUSALEM TO SET UP A MILLENNIAL REIGN FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 05:37 WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE JEWISH SIDE OF THINGS AS WELL AS THE CHRISTIAN SIDE OF THINGS
  • 05:42 IN ORDER TO BE WELL BALANCED.
  • 05:43 I REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST CAME INTO JEWISH MINISTRY
  • 05:46 AND ONE WORLD LEADER INSISTED ON CALLING ME "RABBI".
  • 05:49 AND I WAS THINKING BACK TO MOISHE ROSEN OF "JEWS FOR JESUS"
  • 05:53 WARNING ME IN MY EARLY DAYS SAYING MYLES DON'T LET THEM CALL YOU RABBI
  • 05:57 BECAUSE IT'S OFFENSIVE TO THE MAINSTREAM JEWS,
  • 05:59 IT'S OFFENSIVE TO JEWS FOR MOSES NOT JEWS FOR JESUS.
  • 06:02 AND SO BE CAREFUL WITH THAT.
  • 06:04 BE CAREFUL OF THOSE LABELS.
  • 06:06 NO MATTER WHAT I SAID TO THIS MAN HE INSISTED ON CALLING ME HIS RABBI...
  • 06:09 YOU'RE MY RABBI MYLES.
  • 06:10 I FINALLY GAVE UP AND LET HIM DO IT.
  • 06:13 BUT HE SAID TO ME, I NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE YOU'RE SO BALANCED
  • 06:19 IN THE WAY YOU UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 06:25 I SAID YOU KNOW ED I'M VERY BALANCED,
  • 06:28 I HAVE CHIPS ON BOTH SHOULDERS. (AUDIENCE LAUGHING)
  • 06:31 AND THAT IS IN FACT WHAT KEEPS ME GOING, KEEPS ME STEADY.
  • 06:36 THE REALITY IS THAT SO MANY PASTORS HAVE BEEN HURT BY THE MESSIANIC MOVEMENT
  • 06:41 AND WHAT WE JEWISH FOLKS CALL "MESSIANTICS"
  • 06:44 THAT THEY NEED TO BE HEALED UP,
  • 06:46 THEY NEED TO BE INSTRUCTED,
  • 06:47 THEY NEED TO BE HELPED TO COME INTO THIS UNDERSTANDING
  • 06:50 IN A WAY THAT MAY REQUIRE SOME GENTLENESS, SOME CARE,
  • 06:54 SOME PASTORAL CARE OF THE PASTORS ALONG THE WAY
  • 06:57 IN ORDER FOR THEM TO LEAD THEIR PEOPLE INTO WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW TO BE TRUE.
  • 07:02 THAT SAID...ONE OF THE BEST WAYS YOU CAN DO THAT
  • 07:05 IS TO BRING THEM TO ISRAEL.
  • 07:06 HAVE YOUR PASTOR COME TO ISRAEL AND BRING HIS PEOPLE TO ISRAEL.
  • 07:10 THAT IS LIFE-CHANGING.
  • 07:12 WE'VE BROUGHT SO MANY PASTORS TO ISRAEL
  • 07:13 AND THEY COME AWAY WITH THE SAME TESTIMONY WHICH YOU'VE HEARD
  • 07:17 WHICH IS "WHY WASN'T THIS 35 YEARS AGO IN SEMINARY?"
  • 07:20 "WHY DID I WAIT MY WHOLE LIFE TO HEAR THIS MESSAGE..."
  • 07:24 "THIS IS WHAT I NEEDED."
  • 07:26 OF COURSE NOW WHEN THEY COME HOME AND THEIR FACING THE MORTGAGE ON THE CHURCH
  • 07:29 IT BECOMES MUCH MORE DIFFICULT TO REMEMBER THOSE REVELATORY MOMENTS IN ISRAEL.
  • 07:34 YOU HAVE TO STAY WITH THEM AND HELP THEM TO STAY IN THE REVELATION OF THESE TRUTHS.
  • 07:39 BUT THE REALITY IS THAT BECAUSE OF THE PSYCHOLOGIZING OF THE CHURCH
  • 07:43 AND THE "LUKEWARMING" OF THE CHURCH AND THE FALLING AWAY SEASON THAT WE'RE IN
  • 07:49 IT'S VERY HARD FOR THE CHURCH AT LARGE TO KEEP THIS ISSUE AT THE CENTER OF ITS HEART, WHY?,
  • 07:55 IT'S COSTLY.
  • 07:57 THERE'S NOTHING IN IT FOR ME.
  • 07:59 IT'S FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
  • 08:00 IT'S FOR THE SAKE OF THE KINGDOM.
  • 08:02 IT'S FOR THE SAKE OF YESHUA.
  • 08:03 IT'S FOR THE SAKE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 08:05 WHO I KNOW AS A JEW, ARE NOT ALWAYS SUCH A LOVELY GROUP OF PEOPLE.
  • 08:09 NOW I CAN SAY THAT.
  • 08:10 PLEASE, YOU CAN'T SAY THAT.
  • 08:12 THE "J" WORD, BE CAREFUL.
  • 08:14 BUT I CAN SAY IT.
  • 08:16 AND THE FACT IS THAT WE'RE NOT ALWAYS THE LOVELIEST GROUP AROUND.
  • 08:18 WE KNOW THAT ABOUT OURSELVES.
  • 08:21 BUT ONE OF THE MOST PRECIOUS SCRIPTURES ABOUT THE WAY THE NATIONS IN ISRAEL WORK TOGETHER OR DON'T WORK TOGETHER
  • 08:27 IS IN ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 1:14-15
  • 08:31 WHERE GOD SAYS ABOUT ISRAEL, EMPHASIZING MY REDEMPTION IS WHAT I'M CALLING THEM TO.
  • 08:37 YES, I'VE BEEN ANGRY WITH THEM FOR A LITTLE WHILE
  • 08:39 BUT I'M CALLING THEM TO REDEMPTION AND RESTORATION.
  • 08:42 HIS HEART IS ALWAYS ABOUT RESTORATION
  • 08:45 WHETHER IT'S PERSONALLY...
  • 08:46 THAT'S WHY KATHARINE AND I WORK WITH MARRIAGES...
  • 08:48 OR WHETHER IT'S CORPORATELY AS A NATION.
  • 08:51 THERE'S ALWAYS THE REDEMPTION THAT'S IN HIS HEART FIRST.
  • 08:53 AND THEN HE WILL CORRECT ALONG THE WAY.
  • 08:56 THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE NATIONS...
  • 08:58 AND HE SAYS THIS IN THAT PASSAGE IN ZECHARIAH...
  • 09:00 HE SAYS, YOU WENT TOO FAR.
  • 09:02 YOU MEANT IT FOR EVIL.
  • 09:04 IN OTHER WORDS, THE NATIONS IN HELPING GOD TO CORRECT ISRAEL
  • 09:07 WENT A LITTLE TOO FAR OVER THE COURSE OF THE CENTURIES
  • 09:11 WHICH ANSWERS ONE OF THE NEXT QUESTIONS.
  • 09:13 WHY DON'T JEWISH PEOPLE GET THAT JESUS IS OUR MESSIAH?
  • 09:17 WHY IS IT SO HARD?
  • 09:19 AND I CAN ANSWER THAT IN THREE OR FOUR WORDS,
  • 09:22 THE INQUISITION, THE CRUSADES, THE POGROMS AND THE HOLOCAUST.
  • 09:27 THOSE ARE GOOD REASONS FOR JEWISH PEOPLE NOT TO GET THAT THERE'S A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OUR MESSIAH AND OURSELVES.
  • 09:37 WE HAVE A SPOTTED HISTORY WITH THE CHURCH
  • 09:41 AND SO THERE'S A LOT OF GAP TO OVERCOME WHEN YOU'RE HELPING JEWISH PEOPLE COME TO UNDERSTAND
  • 09:48 THAT THE MOST HEBREW THING WE CAN DO IS FOLLOW THE JEWISH MESSIAH.
  • 09:52 THAT IS THE MOST JEWISH THING I CAN DO.
  • 09:55 I JOKE ABOUT THAT THE RABBIS CALL ME "PASTOR",
  • 10:00 THE PASTORS CALL ME "RABBI",
  • 10:02 MY PATIENTS CALL ME "DOC",
  • 10:03 MY FAMILY CALLS ME "MASHUGAN" (SILLY)
  • 10:06 BECAUSE WHAT IS THIS THING YOU'RE DOING MYLES THAT SINCE 1984 YOU'VE BEEN ON THIS.
  • 10:12 ARE YOU GOING TO GET OVER THIS?
  • 10:13 IS THIS A PASSING PHASE?
  • 10:15 YOU MARRIED A GENTILE AND NOW YOU'RE FINALLY GOING AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS.
  • 10:19 ARE YOU GOING TO GET OVER THIS?
  • 10:20 IS THIS A PASSING PHASE?
  • 10:21 IS THIS LIKE THE OTHER THINGS YOU DID AS A TEENAGER?
  • 10:23 I'M 61 YEARS OLD.
  • 10:25 I THINK THEY FIGURED OUT THAT BY NOW THIS IS GOING TO STICK.
  • 10:28 THIS IS NOT GOING AWAY.
  • 10:30 AND THE REALITY IS THAT THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING FOR YOU AS WELL,
  • 10:33 THIS BURNING PASSION TO UNDERSTAND THE ONE NEW MAN AND TO HELP OTHERS UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 10:37 IT'S NOT GOING TO GO AWAY.
  • 10:39 SO ISRAEL AND CHURCH REVIVAL;
  • 10:41 THIS GOES BACK FOR YOU 4,000 YEARS TO THE CALL OF ABRAHAM.
  • 10:45 WHEN ABRAHAM WAS CALLED OUT YOUR LIFE BEGAN.
  • 10:47 THE CLOCK STARTED TICKING
  • 10:49 AND GOD STARTED HELPING US TO UNDERSTAND WHERE WE'VE COME FROM AND WHERE WE'RE GOING.
  • 10:55 WE ARE HEWN FROM THE ROCK THAT ABRAHAM IS.
  • 10:59 HE WAS CUT OUT AND SET ASIDE AND CALLED OUT.
  • 11:02 SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN ABOUT THE IDENTITY OF A JEW?
  • 11:05 REALLY, A JEWISH PERSON, THE ORIGINAL JEWISH PERSON,
  • 11:08 IS A GENTILE WHO IS CALLED OUT SOVEREIGNLY BY GOD.
  • 11:12 HE DID THIS WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF A SERMON, WITHOUT A PASTOR, WITHOUT A SMALL GROUP,
  • 11:17 WITHOUT ANY OF THE COMMENSURATE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE DO IN THE CHURCHES
  • 11:23 THAT WE HAVE TO HELP ONE ANOTHER GROW, TO DISCIPLE ONE ANOTHER.
  • 11:26 IT WAS A SOVEREIGN CALL OF GOD THAT CALLED HIM OUT.
  • 11:30 NOW, HISTORIANS TELL US THAT ABRAHAM WAS PROBABLY FROM AN IDOL-MAKING FAMILY,
  • 11:36 VERY WEALTHY TO BEGIN WITH AND THEN GOING TO BECOMING WEALTHIER WHEN HE WAS WALKING WITH GOD.
  • 11:42 BUT HE WAS FROM AN IDOL-MAKING FAMILY
  • 11:44 AND THEY PROBABLY WERE DOING VERY WELL IN UR OF THE CHALDEA'S.
  • 11:47 AND THE CALL ON THEM TO COME OUT OF THIS COSMOPOLITAN PLACE
  • 11:51 INTO THIS LIFE OF WANDERING IS VERY CHALLENGING.
  • 11:54 YOU MAY HAVE FELT LIKE THAT SOMETIMES ALONG THE WAY YOURSELVES
  • 11:58 WHERE, "GOD IS THERE A RESTING PLACE FOR ME?"
  • 12:00 SOMETIMES FOR SOME OF US WE FEEL LIKE WE'RE JUST KIND OF ON THE MOVE
  • 12:04 AND THERE'S REALLY NEVER A PLACE WHERE WE FEEL EXACTLY AT HOME
  • 12:07 BECAUSE OUR HOME IS NOT HERE.
  • 12:09 OUR HOME IS IN A CITY WHOSE MAKER AND BUILDER IS GOD
  • 12:12 AND SO THERE'S GOING TO BE A SENSE FOR SOME OF US
  • 12:15 THAT THERE'S NO PLACE ON EARTH THAT REALLY FEELS HOME-LIKE
  • 12:19 ACCEPT MAYBE WHEN YOU LAND IN ISRAEL.
  • 12:21 AND HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I HEARD THAT?
  • 12:22 YOU'VE PROBABLY SAID IT YOURSELF,
  • 12:24 "WHEN I LANDED HERE I FELT LIKE I CAME HOME FINALLY".
  • 12:27 AND I HEAR THAT ALL THE TIME FROM PEOPLE.

  • 15:03 SO WE THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR MINISTRY
  • 15:06 AND WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THESE LAST DAYS WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 15:09 AND BRINGING THAT "ONE NEW MAN" PERSPECTIVE.
  • 15:13 WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK NOW AND HEAR MORE FROM MYLES
  • 15:15 ABOUT THE MESSIANIC PERSPECTIVE OF WORLD REVIVAL.
  • 15:21 LET'S GO BACK BEFORE ABRAHAM TO GENESIS IN CHAPTERS 1, 2 AND 3 IN THE FALL OF MAN.
  • 15:28 THIS DOWNWARD SPIRAL BEGAN;
  • 15:30 THIS FALL OF MAN AWAY FROM GOD THAT NEEDED TO BE REDEEMED:
  • 15:34 THAT NEED FOR REDEMPTION.
  • 15:36 GOD ENCOUNTERS THIS MAN WHO WAS OF THE LINE OF SHEM;
  • 15:40 WAS OF THE LINE OF EBER, THE HEBREW,
  • 15:42 AND HE BRINGS THIS MAN OUT OF THE LINE OF SHEM
  • 15:47 AND BY THE CALL ON ABRAHAM HE SETS UP AN ENCOUNTER
  • 15:52 THAT AFFECTS THE DESTINY OF EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH THROUGHOUT HISTORY.
  • 16:00 WE CAN SAY "NO", THERE'S ALWAYS THAT OPTION
  • 16:03 AND WE GRIEVE OVER FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES WHO SAY "NO" TO YESHUA
  • 16:08 WHO IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF ABRAM'S CALL.
  • 16:11 BUT IF WE DON'T SAY "NO";
  • 16:14 IF WE DO SAY "YES" WE BEGIN THIS OTHER PROCESS OF THE RESTORATION UNTO LIFE THAT BEGAN WITH ABRAM.
  • 16:21 SO ABRAM ACCORDING TO ROMANS CHAPTER 4 WAS A GENTILE CALLED OUT AND BROUGHT UNTO GOD
  • 16:29 AND SETS UP A PATTERN FOR YOU AND FOR ME.
  • 16:31 HE WAS LOOKING FOR A CITY.
  • 16:33 NOW THERE'S THREEFOLD CALL ON ISRAEL THAT AFFECTS THE NATURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 16:38 IT AFFECTS THE CALL THAT'S ON YOU PERSONALLY AS WELL.
  • 16:41 THERE'S A "BIRTHING" CALL ON ISRAEL TO BIRTH THE THINGS OF GOD,
  • 16:46 TO BIRTH THE PATTERNS OF GOD,
  • 16:48 TO BIRTH THE STORY, THE HISTORY.
  • 16:50 I JOKE WITH MY FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES IN MINISTRY
  • 16:55 THAT IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE DIRT IN MY FAMILY HISTORY JUST PICK UP YOUR BIBLE
  • 16:59 AND OPEN TO ANY PAGE AND THE DIRTY LAUNDRY IS THERE FOR YOU TO SEE AT ANY TIME.
  • 17:05 NO OTHER FAMILY ON EARTH HAS SO MUCH DIRTY LAUNDRY AIRED BEFORE THE WORLD OTHER THAN THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 17:12 AND THAT'S BECAUSE GOD IS REDEMPTIVE
  • 17:15 AND SO HE'S SAYING LOOK HERE'S THE LAUNDRY LIST BUT GUESS WHAT?
  • 17:18 I'VE GOT AND EXPECTED END FOR YOU.
  • 17:21 I'M TAKING YOU SOMEWHERE.
  • 17:23 I'M BRINGING YOU INTO A RESTORATION
  • 17:24 THAT IS SO FAR BEYOND WHAT WE COULD ASK OR THINK.
  • 17:27 IT'S EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE WHAT WE COULD ASK OR THINK.
  • 17:30 IT'S WAY BEYOND THE PERSONAL BREAKTHROUGHS, THE PERSONAL VICTORIES.
  • 17:34 IT'S A NATIONAL, INTERNATIONAL, A GLOBAL REDEMPTION THAT GOD IS OFFERING TO US THROUGH THE FINISHED WORK OF YESHUA.
  • 17:42 SO THERE'S A BIRTHING CALL ON ISRAEL.
  • 17:44 HE BIRTHS THE THINGS THAT WILL PERTAIN TO LIFE AND GODLINESS,
  • 17:48 THE THINGS THAT WILL PERTAIN TO EVERYONE WHO CALLS HIMSELF A BELIEVER.
  • 17:52 THERE'S A "SALVATION" CALL.
  • 17:54 JOHN 4:22 YESHUA SAYS TO THE SAMARITAN WOMAN, SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS.
  • 18:00 YOU WORSHIP ON THIS MOUNTAIN.
  • 18:02 THE JEWS WORSHIP IN JERUSALEM
  • 18:04 BUT THE REALITY IS THAT I'M CALLING THOSE WHO ARE WORSHIPPING IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.
  • 18:08 AND THE REALITY IS THAT SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS.
  • 18:11 THE ENTIRE SALVATION STORY COMES THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 18:17 AND THAT'S ONE OF THE HEARTACHES FOR US AS JEWISH BELIEVERS
  • 18:21 AND THOSE OF YOU, THE GENTILE MESSIANICS,
  • 18:24 THE ONES THAT HAVE KNIT THEMSELVES CONSCIOUSLY,
  • 18:28 PURPOSEFULLY TO THE HEART OF ISRAEL AND THE HEART OF GOD.
  • 18:31 ONE OF THE PAINFUL ASPECTS IS THAT THE CHURCH AT LARGE DOES NOT SEE THAT.
  • 18:36 THEY BELIEVE THAT IT'S SOMEHOW...GOD HAS...IT'S REALLY A MARCIONITE HERESY.
  • 18:41 IT'S A FIRST CENTURY HERESY.
  • 18:43 MARCION SAID THAT HE DIVIDED THE WORD INTO TWO GROUPS;
  • 18:48 THE BAD OLD TESTAMENT AND THE GOOD NEW TESTAMENT;
  • 18:52 THE BAD JEWS AND THE GOOD CHRISTIANS;
  • 18:54 THE BAD, ANGRY JEHOVAH AND THE GOOD, HAPPY, GENTLE SHEPHERD JESUS.
  • 18:59 AND SO FOREVER PUT REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY IN PLACE.
  • 19:03 I'M GOING TO TAKE THAT BACK.
  • 19:05 AND SO HE PUT REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY INTO MOVEMENT
  • 19:08 BUT IT WILL BE RECOVERED BECAUSE IT'S BEING RECOVERED IN OUR DAY.
  • 19:12 HE REALITY IS THAT THIS MARCIONITE HERESY IS EVERYWHERE IN THE CHURCH.
  • 19:16 THEY BELIEVE THAT THE BIBLE BEGINS WITH THE NEW TESTAMENT, THE B'RIT HADASHAH
  • 19:20 AND I LOVE HEARING ABOUT THE BROTHERS AROUND THE WORLD THAT ARE TAKING THAT MIDDLE PAGE,
  • 19:24 THAT WHITE PAGE BETWEEN MALACHI AND MATTHEW.
  • 19:27 THEY TAKE IT WITH A RAZOR BLADE AND THEY CIRCUMCISE THEIR BIBLES
  • 19:31 THEY TAKE OUT THAT BLANK PAGE
  • 19:33 BECAUSE IT'S A SEAMLESS CONNECTION BETWEEN MALACHI
  • 19:36 AND ACTUALLY IN OUR BIBLE IT'S II CHRONICLES
  • 19:38 BUT BETWEEN MALACHI AND MATTHEW THERE IS A SEAMLESS CONNECTION.
  • 19:42 ITS ONE WHOLE STORY, AS SOMEONE HAS SAID, FROM GENESIS TO MAPS RIGHT?
  • 19:47 IT'S ONE WHOLE STORY.
  • 19:49 AND SO WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE THAT WE'RE CARRYING THIS UNDERSTANDING,
  • 19:54 WE'RE CARRYING THIS REVELATION THAT THIS IS A BIGGER STORY THAN JUST A NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH
  • 19:59 AND WE NEED BOTH SIDES.
  • 20:02 THE THIRD ASPECT OF THE CALL UPON ISRAEL IS THIS ROMANS 3 ADVANTAGE OF THE JEW.
  • 20:09 WHAT ADVANTAGE HAS THE JEWS?
  • 20:11 AND PAUL SAYS MUCH IN EVERY WAY
  • 20:13 BECAUSE UNTO THE JEWS WAS COMMITTED THE ORACLES OF GOD,THE TEMPLE SERVICE, THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 20:19 EVERYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH LIFE AND GODLINESS
  • 20:22 WAS COMMITTED TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE SO THAT THE WORLD COULD KNOW IT.
  • 20:26 THAT'S WHY JESUS IN JOHN 17 IS SO STRONG ABOUT SAYING THAT THEY, MEANING THOSE OUT THERE,
  • 20:33 HE'S SPEAKING TO HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES WHEN HE SAYS
  • 20:35 THAT "THEY" THEY COME TO KNOW THE ONENESS THAT I HAVE WITH YOU
  • 20:39 THROUGH THE WORD THAT YOU JEWISH DISCIPLES SPEAK TO THEM LOOKING FORWARD TO PAUL'S LIFE
  • 20:46 AND THE LIFE OF THE APOSTLES RECOGNIZING THAT THESE JEWISH DISCIPLES WOULD BRING THE WORD TO THE GENTILE WORLD.
  • 20:53 AND WHOSOEVER WILL, WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 20:57 TO COME INTO SALVATION THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 21:01 A FEW WEEKS AGO I WAS IN ARIZONA.
  • 21:03 JONATHAN BERNIS HELD THE MESSIANIC LEADERS ROUNDTABLE.
  • 21:06 IT WAS THIS PRECIOUS GROUP.
  • 21:09 I WAS SO THRILLED.
  • 21:10 YOU MAY HAVE READ ABOUT THIS IN THE LEVITT LETTER
  • 21:12 BUT I WAS SO BLESSED BY THE MATURITY THAT I SAW IN THE MESSIANIC MOVEMENT.
  • 21:18 NOT ONLY ARE WE OLDER, FATTER AND BALDER...
  • 21:21 SO WE'VE SEEN THAT KIND OF GROWTH.
  • 21:23 BUT I SAW A HEART TO SERVE ONE ANOTHER THAT I HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE;
  • 21:29 A HEART TO INCLUDE THE GENTILES AND THE JEWS TOGETHER;
  • 21:34 A HEART TO OVERCOME ANY EXCLUSIVITY ON THE PART OF THE JEWISH MINISTRIES
  • 21:39 OR ANY EXCLUSIVITY ON THE PART OF GENTILE MINISTRIES,
  • 21:42 AND TO WORK TOGETHER AS THE "ONE NEW MAN".
  • 21:45 AND IT WAS SO POWERFUL AND SO PRECIOUS.
  • 21:47 THERE WAS A SPECIAL MOMENT FOR ME.
  • 21:49 JONATHAN KAHN CAME WITH A TORCH THAT HE HAD BEEN GIVEN A WEEK BEFORE IN MADRAS, INDIA
  • 21:59 WHERE THOMAS THE DISCIPLE BROUGHT THE GOSPEL TO SOUTHERN INDIA.
  • 22:05 THE GOSPEL HAS GONE UP THROUGH THE NORTH.
  • 22:07 IF YOU'VE BEEN TO INDIA YOU KNOW THAT THERE'S BEEN A STRONG GOSPEL MOVEMENT IN INDIA
  • 22:11 THROUGH THE CENTURIES STARTING IN THE SOUTH.
  • 22:13 THE NORTH HAS BEEN MUCH MORE DIFFICULT.
  • 22:15 WELL KATHARINE AND I AND THE MINISTRY WE WERE INVOLVED IN YEARS AGO
  • 22:18 LABORED FOR YEARS GOING IN AND OUT OF INDIA AND SEEN AMAZING THINGS HAPPEN THERE.
  • 22:22 AND IT ALWAYS WAS AMAZING TO ME THAT THEY KNEW THE HISTORY OF THEIR CONNECTION WITH JERUSALEM
  • 22:29 BECAUSE THEY RECOGNIZED THE MAR THOMA CHURCH, THE THOMAS BASED CHURCH,
  • 22:34 RECOGNIZED THAT THEY HAD COME FROM THE GOSPEL GOING OUT OF JERUSALEM.
  • 22:39 WELL HERE'S A REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY NOTE FOR YOU.
  • 22:43 I'M ABOUT THREE YEARS OLD IN THE LORD, FOUR YEARS MAYBE.
  • 22:48 I COME BACK FROM INDIA AND I'M GIVING A TESTIMONY
  • 22:50 ABOUT HOW IT WAS SO EXCITING TO BE ON ST.THOMAS HILL OUTSIDE MADRAS
  • 22:56 AND TO SEE HOW THIS MOVEMENT BEGAN
  • 22:58 WHEN THIS NICE JEWISH BOY BROUGHT THE GOSPEL FROM JERUSALEM TO INDIA
  • 23:04 AND THROUGH MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS THE CHURCH WAS BIRTHED IN INDIA,
  • 23:09 AND HOW PRECIOUS THAT WAS TO ME AS A NEW JEWISH BELIEVER.
  • 23:12 AND AFTER I GAVE THAT TESTIMONY TO A CHURCH OF ABOUT 500-600 PEOPLE
  • 23:17 THE ELDER'S WIFE CAME TO ME AND SAID,
  • 23:21 YOU KNOW YOU REALLY MADE A MISTAKE IN THE PULPIT.
  • 23:25 "I'M SORRY, WHAT DID I DO?"
  • 23:27 WELL YOU SAID THAT THOMAS A JEW BUT THOMAS WAS A CHRISTIAN;
  • 23:31 HE HAD BEEN A JEW AND HE WAS NOW A CHRISTIAN.
  • 23:37 AND I THOUGHT SOMETHING'S WRONG HERE BUT I'M TOO YOUNG TO KNOW WHAT IT IS.
  • 23:43 I JUST KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING NOT RIGHT THERE.
  • 23:46 BUT YOU KNOW WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER THAT
  • 23:47 AND WHEN IT REALLY RUNS DEEP IT'S LIKE A GUT PUNCH YOU KNOW?
  • 23:51 YOU CAN'T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT
  • 23:53 BUT THERE'S THIS GUT PUNCH OF ANTI-SEMITISM, OF REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY, OF THE FAILURES IN THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH.
  • 23:58 IT ALL GOES LIKE ONE GOOD SHOT IN YOUR GUT AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING'S WRONG
  • 24:02 BUT YOU'RE NOT SURE WHAT IT IS DO YOU MR. JONES...MR. COHEN?
  • 24:06 AND SO I TRIED TO CORRECT IT BUT I COULDN'T IN MY SPIRIT CORRECT IT, YOU KNOW.
  • 24:11 THE REALITY IS THAT THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 24:13 THOMAS WAS A BORN AGAIN BELIEVER IN YESHUA, THE JEWISH MESSIAH.
  • 24:18 CALL HIM A CHRISTIAN;
  • 24:19 I LOVE THE WAY ZOLA SAID CALL ME WHATEVER YOU WANT.
  • 24:22 CALL ME A CHRISTIAN, THAT'S WHAT THEY FIRST CALLED US IN ANTIOCH.
  • 24:24 THAT'S FINE WITH ME.
  • 24:26 HE WASN'T PUTTING THE EMPHASIS ON THOSE WORDS.
  • 24:28 TODAY WE HAVE TO IN A SENSE RECOVER THE LANGUAGE.
  • 24:32 I THINK OF THE MESSIANIC MOVEMENT AS A MOVEMENT IN SEARCH OF A LABEL.
  • 24:37 YOU KNOW WE REALLY NEED SOME NEW LABELS
  • 24:39 BECAUSE EVERYTHING'S BEEN COMPROMISED A LITTLE BIT
  • 24:42 IN TERMS OF THE WAY PEOPLE HAVE WROTE REACTIONS TO THESE WORDS "MESSIANIC"
  • 24:46 OR "CHRISTIAN" EVEN PER SAY.
  • 24:49 SO THERE'S A WAY THAT WE NEED OF APPLYING THIS LANGUAGE TO HELP PEOPLE; TO OPEN THEIR SPIRITS.
  • 24:54 BUT THAT WAS A SEMINAL MOMENT FOR ME AS A YOUNG BELIEVER
  • 24:58 TO REALIZE THAT THERE WAS THIS SPLIT BETWEEN MY EXPERIENCE
  • 25:02 WHICH WAS SOMEWHAT SEAMLESS REGARDING THIS NEW THING THAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME
  • 25:07 THAT MY FAMILY WAS SHOCKED BY
  • 25:10 BUT THEY WERE BLESSING, THEY WERE GLAD TO SEE ME NOT BE AS CRAZY AS I HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY.
  • 25:16 SO AS FAR AS THEY WERE CONCERNED THIS LOOKED LIKE AN OKAY THING
  • 25:19 EVEN THOUGH IT WAS ODD AND UNLIKE MANY JEWISH BELIEVERS
  • 25:23 WHO COME INTO PERSECUTION BY THEIR FAMILIES.
  • 25:25 I DID NOT HAVE THAT TESTIMONY.
  • 25:27 IN FACT, MY MOM AND MY SISTER BOTH BECAME BELIEVERS BEFORE THEY LEFT THE PLANET.
  • 25:31 AND THAT'S THE ECONOMY OF GOD
  • 25:33 THAT YOU FOLLOW HIM AND YOU LISTEN FOR HIM AND HE'LL TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY.
  • 25:38 I THINK THAT'S A WORD FOR SOME OF YOU HERE TODAY.
  • 25:40 YOU'RE PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FOR LOVED ONES AND DO NOT GIVE UP.
  • 25:44 DO NOT GIVE UP.
  • 25:47 AS A MOTHER I KNOW THAT GOD IS FAITHFUL AS WE CONTINUE TO PRAY
  • 25:52 AND STAND FOR OUR WHOLE HOUSEHOLD TO BE SAVED.
  • 25:56 YES, THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 25:57 THE PHILIPPIAN JAILER...YOU SHALL BE SAVED AND YOUR HOUSE.
  • 25:59 AND IT'S REALLY A VERY PERSONAL THING.
  • 26:02 IT'S REALLY ONE BY ONE
  • 26:03 AND GOD IS REACHING INTO THE NATIONS.
  • 26:05 HE'S REACHING INTO ISRAEL
  • 26:07 BUT WE HAVE TO BELIEVE FOR THAT PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION THAT COMES AS WE SAY "YES" TO YESHUA.
  • 26:13 WE'RE WORKING WITH A CHURCH IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
  • 26:15 WHERE THEY SAY THAT WHEN WE BEGAN TO PAY ATTENTION TO JEWISH MINISTRY AND TO GIVING TO ISRAEL
  • 26:22 WE'VE SEEN INCREASE IN SALVATION,
  • 26:24 INCREASE IN THE GROWTH IN NUMBERS IN THE CHURCH.
  • 26:27 IT'S BEEN A PHENOMENAL CHANGE THAT THEY'RE EXPERIENCING
  • 26:30 JUST BY MAKING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN ISRAEL AND WORLD REVIVAL.
  • 26:34 WE NEED TO DO BOTH
  • 26:35 AND THAT THE KIND OF TIME THAT WE'RE IN THESE DAYS
  • 26:37 IS WE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO JERUSALEM WHERE THE LORD IS RETURNING
  • 26:41 AND WE NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE NATIONS
  • 26:43 SO THAT THE GOSPEL CAN GO OUT AS YESHUA SAID IT WOULD BEFORE HE RETURNS.
  • 26:48 THERE'S A BLESSING IN THAT FOR US ALL.
  • 26:51 SO AS WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WE WANT TO REMIND YOU AS WE ALWAYS DO,
  • 26:55 SHAL'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 26:58 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
