Caption transcript for Future Congress 2: “A Messianic Perspective,” Part 1 (4/7)

  • 00:04 (Myles Weiss speaking) GROWING UP AS A JEW IN NEW YORK
  • 00:06 WE KNOW THAT YOU CAN BE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD YOU WANT -
  • 00:08 SPIRITUALLY, POLITICALLY, ECONOMICALLY...
  • 00:11 YOU CAN DO ANYTHING EXCEPT BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 00:13 THAT'S THE ONE THING THAT JEWS DON'T DO.
  • 00:15 THAT IS IN A SENSE WHAT DEFINES US.
  • 00:17 HOW DO I KNOW I'M A JEW?
  • 00:19 BECAUSE I DON'T BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 00:21 IT'S NOT THE TRUTH.
  • 00:23 WE KNOW IT MAY BE, THE FACT IS, THE MOST JEWISH THING THAT A JEWISH PERSON CAN DO.
  • 01:08 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 01:10 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS.
  • 01:11 WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 01:13 WE HAVE A SPECIAL EDITION WHERE WE GET TO HEAR FROM MYLES
  • 01:16 TALK ABOUT THE MESSIANIC PERSPECTIVE OF THE PROPHETIC TIME THAT WE'RE IN.
  • 01:20 IT WAS SUCH A GREAT MESSAGE THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO BRING AT THE FUTURE CONGRESS.
  • 01:24 WE WERE REALLY BLESSED TO BE WITH HAL LINDSEY, BILL KOENIG, BILL SALUS.
  • 01:28 WE WERE ABLE TO SPEAK AT THE FUTURE CONGRESS II LAST WINTER.
  • 01:32 IT WAS REALLY A GREAT GATHERING
  • 01:34 WHERE PEOPLE WITH REAL PROPHETIC INSIGHT INTO THE TIME IN WHICH WE'RE LIVING BROUGHT THEIR VIEWS
  • 01:38 AND WE HEARD FROM REAL LUMINARIES AS I SAID.
  • 01:40 HAL LINDSEY WAS THERE, AN ELDER STATESMAN IN THE PROPHETIC MOVEMENT.
  • 01:44 BILL KOENIG WHO HAS A TREMENDOUS NEWS MAGAZINE OUT OF WASHINGTON D.C.
  • 01:49 AND REALLY UNDERSTANDS THE MIDDLE EAST AND ISRAEL.
  • 01:52 WE WERE ABLE TO SHARE AS WELL ABOUT A JEWISH PERSPECTIVE ON THE END TIMES
  • 01:57 AND REALLY THE RESTORATION THAT IS COMING BEGINNING WITH ABRAHAM,
  • 02:01 COMING THROUGH THE CROSS OF CHRIST AND ALL THE WAY INTO THE ESTABLISHING OF THE LAND
  • 02:06 AND THE TIMES OF THE REFRESHING THAT GOD HAS PROMISED IN ACTS 3:19 AND FOLLOWING.
  • 02:10 IN OTHER WORDS WE ARE IN A TIME OF RESTORATION LEADING UP TO THE COMING OF THE LORD.
  • 02:16 SO I HOPE THAT YOU'LL ENJOY THIS.
  • 02:18 LET'S GO RIGHT NOW TO THE FUTURE CONGRESS WHERE I HAD A CHANCE TO BRING THIS MESSAGE.
  • 02:24 THUS SAYETH THE LORD OF HOSTS I AM JEALOUS FOR JERUSALEM AND FOR ZION WITH A GREAT JEALOUSY
  • 02:29 AND I AM VERY SORE DISPLEASED WITH THE NATIONS THAT ARE AT EASE
  • 02:33 FOR I WAS BUT A LITTLE DISPLEASED AND THEY HELPED FOR EVIL.
  • 02:38 THEREFORE THUS SAYETH THE LORD
  • 02:40 I RETURN TO JERUSALEM WITH COMPASSIONS.
  • 02:43 MY HOUSE SHALL BE BUILT IN IT SAYETH THE LORD OF HOSTS
  • 02:46 AND A LINE SHALL BE STRETCHED FORTH OVER JERUSALEM.
  • 02:49 AGAIN PROCLAIM SAYING THUS SAYETH THE LORD OF HOSTS
  • 02:53 MY CITIES SHALL AGAIN OVERFLOW WITH PROSPERITY
  • 02:56 AND THE LORD SHALL YET COMFORT ZION AND SHALL YET CHOOSE JERUSALEM.
  • 03:02 THANK GOD FOR THE CALL ON ABRAHAM.
  • 03:05 THANK GOD FOR THE CALL ON ISRAEL.
  • 03:07 THANK GOD THAT WE FAILED THAT THE CHURCH MIGHT COME IN.
  • 03:12 THANK GOD THAT GOD IN HIS WISDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY...
  • 03:15 THROUGH ROMANS 9 THROUGH 11 WE CAN SEE THAT HE NEVER ABANDONED THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 03:20 BUT WHEN WE REJECTED THE MESSIAH WE OPENED THE DOOR FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD TO COME IN.
  • 03:25 I ALWAYS EXHORT PEOPLE TO READ ROMANS 9 - 11 AS IF YOU HAD NEVER READ ANYTHING ELSE BEFORE.
  • 03:31 DO NOT PUT ANYTHING SPIRITUALIZED UPON IT.
  • 03:35 DO NOT PUT ANYTHING SYMBOLIC UPON IT.
  • 03:37 DO NOT PUT ANY PRIVATE INTERPRETATION UPON IT.
  • 03:40 PETER SAYS THAT'S A BAD IDEA.
  • 03:41 THERE IS NO PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.
  • 03:43 BUT IF WE'LL READ ROMANS 9 - 11 JUST AS IT IS,
  • 03:47 THEN WE'LL COME UP WITH THE SAME CLEANLINESS ABOUT SCRIPTURE
  • 03:50 THAT THE CHINESE CHURCH HAS FOR EXAMPLE.
  • 03:52 THE CHURCH IS RISING IN THE EAST
  • 03:54 AND WITH A CLEAR BACK TO JERUSALEM MOVEMENT
  • 03:57 BECAUSE THEY LOOK AT THE WORD, THEY TAKE IT LITERALLY... IMAGINE THAT.
  • 04:00 WE IN THE WEST WOULD BE WISE TO DO THE SAME
  • 04:04 BECAUSE WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT THEY HAVE AN AWAKENING.
  • 04:07 I WAS WITH A PASTOR LAST WEEK
  • 04:09 WHEN I WAS PREACHING TO THIS CHURCH OF 5,000 PEOPLE WELCOMING CHANUKAH INTO THEIR MIDST.
  • 04:13 IT WAS SO WONDERFUL FOR THEM TO BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND
  • 04:16 THE CONNECTION BETWEEN CHANUKAH AND CHRISTMAS
  • 04:19 AND THAT IN FACT WITHOUT CHANUKAH THERE WOULD BE NO CHRISTMAS.
  • 04:22 BECAUSE IF GOD HAD NOT PRESERVED THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN 165 BC, THERE WOULD BE NO YESHUA.
  • 04:29 GOD KNOWS THAT AND SO HE IS ALWAYS WORKING TO PRESERVE THE LINE THAT THE MESSIAH WOULD COME THROUGH
  • 04:34 AND ALSO PRESERVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE BECAUSE HE'S A COVENANT KEEPER.
  • 04:39 WE NEED TO BE GRATEFUL THAT HE'S A COVENANT KEEPER.
  • 04:42 IT'S HUMOROUS.
  • 04:43 I'VE BEEN HEARING IT FROM DIFFERENT QUARTERS HERE ALSO AT THIS CONFERENCE.
  • 04:46 I'VE BEEN HEARING PEOPLE SAY
  • 04:48 THANK GOD FOR THE COVENANT KEEPINGS OF GOD OR WHERE WOULD WE BE AS CHRISTIANS.
  • 04:52 SO I THINK THAT THAT'S A UNIVERSAL TRUTH FOR US.
  • 04:56 THE APOSTOLIC CALL THAT CAME ON THE EARLY BODY OF BELIEVERS IN ACTS, CHAPTER 2,
  • 05:02 IT FOLLOWS THE FACT THAT WHEN YESHUA WALKED AMONG US WE ALMOST KILLED HIM 15 TIMES.
  • 05:09 OUR HISTORY OF REJECTING HIM IS VERY VISCERAL.
  • 05:13 IT IS NOT A THEORETICAL REJECTION.
  • 05:17 IT WAS A VERY REAL REJECTION.
  • 05:19 I KNOW IT'S A NATIONAL REJECTION
  • 05:21 AND THERE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INDIVIDUALS THROUGHOUT EVERY GENERATION,
  • 05:24 A REMNANT OF JEWS AND GENTILES TOGETHER WHO KNOW YESHUA.
  • 05:29 AND WE DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH IS VERY PAINFUL
  • 05:32 AND DIFFICULT FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 05:35 MY WIFE IN HER FIRST AND FOREMOST WITNESSING TOOL IS TO APOLOGIZE TO JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 05:43 I'VE HEARD THAT FROM ROSEMARY SCHINDLER AS WELL.
  • 05:46 WE HEAR THAT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 05:47 THE BEST FIRST THING TO SAY IS
  • 05:49 I'M SORRY, BECAUSE THE YESHUA,
  • 05:52 THE JESUS THAT YOU'VE LEARNED ABOUT
  • 05:55 IS NOT THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE.
  • 05:57 THE INSTITUTIONALIZED CHURCH AND ITS HATRED, PERSECUTION
  • 06:02 AND MURDEROUS GENOCIDAL INTENT AGAINST YOUR PEOPLE
  • 06:06 IS NOT THE HEART OF GOD FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 06:11 AND YOU ARE OVERLY QUALIFIED TO APOLOGIZE JUST BY BEING OF THE NATIONS.
  • 06:17 WHAT THAT DOES IS OPEN THE DOORS.
  • 06:19 I'VE SEEN MY WIFE START THAT SPEECH WITH PEOPLE
  • 06:22 AND BEFORE SHE CAN GET TO THE PART ABOUT FEELING LIKE A RUTH TO A NAOMI
  • 06:26 AND WANTING TO TAKE THE HAND OF THE JEWISH PERSON AND FIND THE HOUSE OF BREAD TOGETHER -
  • 06:31 BEFORE SHE EVEN GETS THERE THEY ARE WEEPING BECAUSE THEY'VE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THIS.
  • 06:36 THEY HAVE NEVER HEARD A CHRISTIAN SAY
  • 06:38 WOULD YOU PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR WHAT'S BEEN DONE TO YOUR PEOPLE IN THE NAME OF MY JESUS?
  • 06:45 WOULD YOU CONSIDER THAT MY JESUS IS ACTUALLY THE JEWISH MESSIAH?
  • 06:51 HOWEVER GOD CREATIVELY GIVES YOU TO SPEAK THAT I TRUST YOU WITH THAT.
  • 06:55 I TRUST YOU TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK THAT IN A CREATIVE WAY THROUGH YOUR TESTIMONY.
  • 06:59 WE OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY,
  • 07:02 AND LOVING NOT OUR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH.
  • 07:04 SOMETIMES TELLING A JEWISH PERSON ABOUT JESUS
  • 07:07 IS LIKE LOVING YOUR LIFE NOT UNTO THE DEATH
  • 07:10 BECAUSE WE CAN GET PRETTY HEATED ABOUT THIS DISCUSSION.
  • 07:12 GROWING UP AS A JEW IN NEW YORK
  • 07:14 WE KNOW THAT YOU CAN BE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD YOU WANT -
  • 07:17 SPIRITUALLY, POLITICALLY, ECONOMICALLY -
  • 07:20 YOU CAN DO ANYTHING EXCEPT BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 07:22 THAT'S THE ONE THING THAT JEWS DON'T DO.
  • 07:25 IN A SENSE THAT'S WHAT DEFINES US.
  • 07:27 HOW DO I KNOW I'M A JEW?
  • 07:28 BECAUSE I DON'T BELIEVE IN JESUS.
  • 07:30 IT'S NOT THE TRUTH.
  • 07:32 WE KNOW THAT IT MAY BE, THE FACT IS, THE MOST JEWISH THING THAT A JEWISH PERSON CAN DO IS TO FOLLOW OUR MESSIAH.
  • 07:38 THIS PASSAGE ALONG WITH DOZENS OF OTHERS,
  • 07:41 I WOULD SAY HUNDREDS OF OTHERS,
  • 07:43 POINT TO THE FACT THAT GOD WAS GOING TO AND ALWAYS INTENDED TO RESTORE THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 07:47 TO RESTORE JERUSALEM AND TO THEN OF COURSE RETURN,
  • 07:51 COME TO JERUSALEM AS THE MESSIAH, AS THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.
  • 07:55 THAT WAS HIS INTENTION FROM THE BEGINNING
  • 07:57 AND THE NATIONS THOUGHT WELL WE CAN HELP.
  • 08:00 WE CAN HELP WITH THIS BY PERSECUTING AND KILLING THE JEWS.
  • 08:04 THAT'S WHERE REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY COMES FROM
  • 08:07 AND WHERE THE PAINFUL HISTORY OF THE CHURCH COMES FROM.
  • 08:10 I NEED TO TODAY THANK GOD FOR THE GENTILE REMNANT,
  • 08:14 THE REAL REMNANT OF BELIEVERS THAT HAS KEPT THE WORD IN TRUTH
  • 08:18 SO THAT I COULD HEAR IT AGAIN IN THE 20TH CENTURY.
  • 08:21 MY PEOPLE ARE HEARING IT AGAIN.
  • 08:24 AFTER 1900 YEARS THE GOSPEL IS GOING FORTH IN ISRAEL AS IT DID IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 08:29 IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN.
  • 08:31 THE GOSPEL WENT WEST AROUND THE WORLD AND IT TOUCHED THE WESTERN WORLD
  • 08:34 AND WHEN THE GOSPEL WAS ALIVE THE WESTERN WORLD WAS ALIVE.
  • 08:38 AS THE GOSPEL GETS WEAKER, THE WESTERN WORLD GETS WEAKER.
  • 08:42 IT'S JUST SO CLEAR THAT WE ARE RISING AND FALLING WITH OUR ATTENTION TO THE WORD OF GOD
  • 08:50 AND THE PERSON OF GOD IN YESHUA AND OUR TREATMENT OF ISRAEL.
  • 08:55 WE ARE BEING WEIGHED IN THE BALANCES NOW AS YOU KNOW.
  • 08:58 SO WE ALMOST KILLED HIM 15 TIMES,
  • 09:01 BUT HE WAS CAPABLE FULLY OF WALKING THROUGH THE MIDST NO MATTER WHAT WE WOULD TRY TO DO.
  • 09:06 NOW PETER, IN ACTS, CHAPTER 2,
  • 09:08 I LOVE ACTS, CHAPTER 2
  • 09:10 AND I LOVE THE BIRTH OF THE CHURCH BECAUSE I'M ENAMORED OF THE SYMMETRY OF GOD.
  • 09:14 TODAY I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE SYMMETRY IN GOD'S RESTORATION.
  • 09:19 THAT THERE'S A SYMMETRY IN HIS DEALINGS THAT LEAD TO EXILE
  • 09:23 AND HIS DEALINGS THAT LEAD TO RESTORATION.
  • 09:25 YOU'VE HEARD ME BEFORE SPEAK ABOUT THE CONCURRENT BLESSINGS
  • 09:28 THAT GOD HAS FOR THE CHURCH AND ISRAEL.
  • 09:31 I'M GOING TO GET TO THAT IN A MOMENT.
  • 09:33 BUT BEFORE WE EVEN GET TO THAT,
  • 09:34 THE PATTERN OF EXILE AND RESTORATION IS SO UNIQUE
  • 09:39 AND IT'S ALMOST MATHEMATICALLY ELEGANT.
  • 09:42 I'M NOT A MATHEMATICIAN BUT I HAVE HEARD THAT THE HIGH REALMS OF MATH,
  • 09:46 WHEN THEY CAN'T FIND A WORD TO DESCRIBE A BEAUTIFUL THEOREM,
  • 09:51 SUCH A MAGNIFICENT THEOREM THAT IT'S JUST MAJESTIC,
  • 09:57 THEY WILL SAY IT'S ELEGANT.
  • 09:59 THAT'S WHAT MATHEMATICIANS USE TO DESCRIBE THE HIGHEST FORMS OF MATH.
  • 10:03 WELL GOD IN HIS SCRIPTURE IS ABSOLUTELY ELEGANT
  • 10:07 IN THE WAY HE DOES THE MATH OF COMBINING THE OLD TESTAMENT SO CALLED AND THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 10:14 THE TANAKH AND THE BRIT HADASHAH, THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES IN THEIR ENTIRETY
  • 10:18 AND THE HEBREW NEW TESTAMENT IN ITS ENTIRETY.
  • 10:22 NOW IN ACTS, CHAPTER 2 IT MAKES PERFECT MATHEMATICAL SENSE THAT THE CHURCH
  • 10:28 WOULD BE BIRTHED WHEN EVERYONE WAS IN TOWN TO KEEP THE FEAST OF SHAVUOT.
  • 10:33 EVERYONE WAS THERE FOR PENTECOST.
  • 10:35 I WASN'T TAUGHT THAT.
  • 10:37 I WAS TAUGHT THAT THE DAY OF PENTECOST, WHATEVER THAT MEANS, HAD FULLY COME.
  • 10:40 THEY WERE ALL GATHERED IN AN UPPER ROOM.OKAY.
  • 10:43 AND THERE WAS SOME SUPERNATURAL EVENT THAT WAS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE,
  • 10:47 BUT I HAD NO UNDERSTANDING IN MY EARLY CHRISTIAN WALK, MY EARLY BELIEVING LIFE,
  • 10:52 THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY BECAUSE THERE ARE FEASTS OF GOD, MOADIM,
  • 10:57 OR APPOINTED TIMES THAT BRING THE MEN OF ISRAEL AND REPRESENTING THEIR FAMILIES
  • 11:01 UP TO JERUSALEM THREE TIMES A YEAR.
  • 11:04 WELL NOW WE SEE THAT OF COURSE, IF YOU'RE GOING TO BIRTH SOMETHING NEW
  • 11:09 YOU MIGHT AS WELL DO IT WHEN EVERYONE IS IN TOWN.
  • 11:12 ALL THE NATIONS, EVERY BELIEVER, AND THE PROSELYTES,
  • 11:14 THOSE GENTILES THAT RECOGNIZE THE GOD OF ISRAEL IS GOD
  • 11:19 WOULD JOIN THEMSELVES TO THE BELIEVING COMMUNITY
  • 11:23 AND WOULD SERVE THE LORD AND WOULD WORSHIP THE LORD FOR THE FEASTS OF THE LORD.
  • 11:27 IN THE PASSOVER SEASON, IN THE PENTECOST SEASON, AND IN THE TABERNACLES SEASON.
  • 11:32 SO THERE ARE SEVEN FEASTS THAT ARE DIVIDED INTO THREE VISITS TO MEET WITH THE LORD.
  • 11:36 THEY ARE APPOINTED TIMES TO MEET WITH GOD.
  • 11:40 WELL HOW ELEGANT IS THAT FOR GOD TO HAVE THE CHURCH,
  • 11:45 THE NEW THING THAT HE WAS DOING,
  • 11:47 BIRTHED AMONG THE JEWISH COMMUNITY
  • 11:50 AND EVENTUALLY AMONG THE GENTILES
  • 11:52 WHEN EVERYONE WAS IN TOWN FOR SHAVUOT?
  • 11:55 I REMEMBER WHEN WE FIRST JOINED ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES WE CAME DURING THE SHAVUOT SEASON.
  • 12:00 IN FACT WE WERE CALLED UPON BY THE PRODUCER, KEN BERG,
  • 12:04 WE WERE CALLED UPON TO DO THIS AS THEY WERE GETTING READY TO DO THE BOOK OF RUTH
  • 12:07 AND WE ARRIVED IN ISRAEL ON THE DAY OF SHAVUOT.
  • 12:11 SO THE FIRST THING WE DID WAS WE WENT TO A CELEBRATION,
  • 12:14 A MESSIANIC CELEBRATION OF SHAVUOT
  • 12:17 AND THEN WE WENT TO A HUGE KIBBUTZ CELEBRATION
  • 12:20 TO SEE THIS AMAZING GATHERING OF JEWISH FOLKS FROM ALL OVER THE AREA
  • 12:26 THAT WERE CELEBRATING THE SEVEN SPECIES AND DANCING THEIR LITTLE BABIES AROUND.
  • 12:31 ALL THE BABIES THAT WERE BORN THAT YEAR WERE BOUNCED AROUND AND DISPLAYED.
  • 12:34 IT WAS JUST THIS INCREDIBLY JOYOUS EVENT OF EVERYONE GATHERING TO SAY THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
  • 12:41 TODA RABA WAS THE SOUND THAT WAS COMING UP FROM THE EARTH TO HEAVEN.
  • 12:46 IT WAS THE SOUND OF TODA RABA- THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 12:49 THANK YOU LORD.
  • 12:51 IT WAS JUST AWESOME TO BE THERE TO SEE HOW GOD WAS STILL DOING WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO
  • 12:57 AND HOW THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THE BEST OF OUR UNDERSTANDING ARE STILL CELEBRATING THESE FEASTS
  • 13:02 THAT HE PUT IN PLACE IN THE SCRIPTURE AND NEVER RESCINDED.
  • 13:05 THEY'RE STILL THERE.
  • 13:08 AND IT'S UP TO CHRISTIANS TO UNDERSTAND HOW AND WHEN AND TO WHAT DEGREE THEY NEED TO, WANT TO CELEBRATE THESE FEASTS.
  • 13:13 THEY'RE NOT INCUMBENT UPON US TO KEEP THEM IN THE LEGALISTIC WAY,
  • 13:18 BUT WE WOULD BE VERY FOOLISH NOT TO LEARN FROM THE FEASTS
  • 13:22 AND NOT TO ALLOW THEM TO INFORM THE WAY WE WALK WITH GOD BECAUSE IT'S THE PATTERN THAT HE SET.
  • 13:28 SO WE WERE THERE ON SHAVUOT AND WE'RE WATCHING THESE LITTLE BABIES BEING BOUNCED AROUND
  • 13:33 AND JUST THE JOY OF THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS WITH THEIR CHILDREN.
  • 13:36 AND THE TRACTOR GUYS SHOWING OFF THEIR TRACTORS [LAUGHTER]
  • 13:41 AND THE PLUMBING GUYS SHOWING OFF THEIR PIPES
  • 13:44 AND EVERYBODY THAT HAD ANY KIND OF WORK TO DO ON THE KIBBUTZ,
  • 13:48 AND IT WAS A HUGE KIBBUTZ,
  • 13:50 THEY WERE DEMONSTRATING AND KIND OF CELEBRATING AND THANKING GOD, SHOWING ALL THEIR WARES.
  • 13:53 EVERYONE WAS JUST...IT WAS JUST A JOYOUS, WONDERFUL TIME.
  • 13:56 AND I THOUGHT ABOUT ACTS, CHAPTER 2
  • 13:59 AND I THOUGHT WELL WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BIRTH A CHURCH.
  • 14:02 IF YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT
  • 14:04 LETS DO IT WHEN EVERYONE IS IN THERE ALREADY THERE WAVING THEIR FIRST FRUITS BEFORE THE LORD,
  • 14:08 WAVING THEIR GRAIN THANKING GOD IN AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
  • 14:12 BECAUSE GOD INHABITS THE PRAISES OF HIS PEOPLE ISRAEL.
  • 14:16 SO IF WE WANT TO HEAR FROM HIM WE NEED TO BE IN AN ATTITUDE OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
  • 14:22 THAT'S WHERE HE DWELLS.
  • 14:23 SO WE MEET HIM IN THAT TIME OF PRAISE AND WORSHIP AND HE MEETS WITH US.
  • 15:08 SHA' A' LU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 15:12 SHA' A' LU, SHA' A' LU SHALOM
  • 15:16 IN THE HOLY CITY OF JERUSALEM
  • 15:23 WE WILL PRAY FOR PEACE...
  • 15:26 SHA' A' LU SHALOM
  • 15:36 WE WOULD LOVE TO HOST YOU IN ISRAEL.
  • 15:38 IT IS A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE.
  • 15:40 I KNOW BRINGING PASTORS OVER THERE THEY ALWAYS TELL ME THAT
  • 15:43 WHY DIDN'T I LEARN THESE THINGS 35 YEARS AGO IN SEMINARY?
  • 15:46 I HEAR THAT ALL THE TIME.
  • 15:48 WHETHER YOU'RE A PASTOR IN A CONGREGATION,
  • 15:50 WHATEVER YOUR WORK IS
  • 15:52 IF YOU'RE TEACHING SUNDAY SCHOOL, YOU WILL BE ENRICHED BY A TRIP TO ISRAEL.
  • 15:55 SO WE REALLY WANT TO INVITE YOU TO COME.
  • 15:57 ALSO IF YOU GET IN TOUCH WITH US THIS WEEK
  • 15:59 OUR RESOURCE IS THE GENEALOGY CHART THAT GOES BACK TO THE TIME OF ABRAHAM
  • 16:04 AND YOU CAN ACTUALLY ADD YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS IN.
  • 16:07 SO IT GIVES YOU A VISUAL WAY OF PRAYING FOR THE FUTURE AND DESTINY OF YOUR FAMILY.
  • 16:11 IT'S SO NICE TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILY LATER ON IN LIFE TOO.
  • 16:15 ALSO, WE WANT TO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS
  • 16:18 THAT ENABLE US TO KEEP BRINGING YOU THESE PROGRAMS.
  • 16:21 WITHOUT YOU WE CAN'T DO IT
  • 16:23 AND WE LOVE TO BRING YOU THESE PROGRAMS AND JUST SHARE THE GOODNESS OF GOD
  • 16:27 AND THE PROPHETIC TIMETABLE THAT WE'RE IN.
  • 16:30 SO WE'RE GOING TO GO BACK NOW TO HEAR MORE FROM MYLES ABOUT THE MESSIANIC PERSPECTIVE.
  • 16:35 PETER STANDS UP AND PREACHES THE SERMON THAT TRANSFORMS THE WORLD FOREVER.
  • 16:41 WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE SYMMETRY OF GOD IN THIS AND THE RELATIONSHIP TO RESTORATION
  • 16:47 IS JUST AS IN EXODUS 12 FOLLOWING TO EXODUS 20,
  • 16:53 THE JEWISH PEOPLE CAME OUT OF EGYPT AND 50 DAYS LATER WERE AT THE FOOT OF SINAI.
  • 17:00 SO IT WAS THAT WHEN, AND THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB WAS PUT ON THE DOORPOSTS,
  • 17:05 SO IT WAS THAT 50 DAYS AFTER THE SACRIFICE OF YESHUA
  • 17:08 THEY WERE GATHERED TO CELEBRATE SHAVUOT IN ACTS, CHAPTER 2.
  • 17:12 JUST AS THEY STOOD AT THE FOOT OF THE MOUNTAIN
  • 17:14 AND THERE WERE THUNDERS AND LIGHTNINGS AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN
  • 17:17 AND THEY HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD,
  • 17:19 SO IT WAS THAT THEY WERE GATHERED AND TONGUES OF FIRE DESCENDED ON THEIR HEADS.
  • 17:23 JUST AS THEY WERE CALLED TO BE A NATION OF PRIESTS
  • 17:27 AND REALLY CAME INTO THEIR IDENTITY AS A NATION FOR THE FIRST TIME AT THE FOOT OF SINAI,
  • 17:33 SO THE CHURCH WAS BIRTHED
  • 17:35 AND WE BECAME A NATION OF KINGS AND PRIESTS FOREVER ON PENTECOST, ON SHAVUOT.
  • 17:41 JUST AS THE LAW WAS GIVEN FROM SINAI ON THAT TIME RIGHT AFTER THE EXODUS FROM EGYPT
  • 17:48 SO IT IS THAT THE LAW WAS WRITTEN ON OUR HEARTS IN ACTS, CHAPTER 2.
  • 17:52 JUST AS 3,000 DIED BECAUSE OF DISOBEDIENCE,
  • 17:57 3,000 WERE BORN AGAIN WHEN PETER PREACHED THE SERMON.
  • 18:02 IT COULD HAVE BEEN 2,952, BUT IT WASN'T.
  • 18:06 IT WAS 3,000 THAT WERE LOST BECAUSE OF DISOBEDIENCE OR GOING AWAY FROM GOD
  • 18:12 AND 3,000 RECOVERED, BORN AGAIN, RESTORED
  • 18:16 BECAUSE GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD AND HIS MATH IS ELEGANT.
  • 18:21 IT IS PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL.
  • 18:23 WE CAN SEE THE SYMMETRY OVER AND OVER AGAIN
  • 18:26 THROUGHOUT THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TANAKH AND THE BRIT HADASHAH.
  • 18:30 WE SEE OVER AND OVER AGAIN HOW GOD MAKES GOOD HIS WORD
  • 18:33 THAT THESE THINGS WERE WRITTEN FOR OUR EXAMPLES.
  • 18:36 WE HAVE THE TESTAMENT OF THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL
  • 18:39 THAT IS IN THERE FOR US TO LEARN AS NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS
  • 18:43 FROM THOSE, THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, THE LAUNDRY LIST AS WELL AS THE VICTORIES.
  • 18:49 WE CAN LEARN FROM THOSE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 18:52 WHEN PETER SPOKE ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE BEING INERRANT,
  • 18:55 WHEN PAUL SPOKE ABOUT ALL SCRIPTURE IS INSPIRED,
  • 18:58 IT IS GIVEN, THEO-NUSTOS, BREATHED BY GOD
  • 19:01 AND IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, AN INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 19:06 HE WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 19:08 THERE WAS NO NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 19:10 HE WAS SPEAKING ABOUT THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES.
  • 19:13 ALL THE REFERENCES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT ARE FROM THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES.
  • 19:18 SO IT'S ALMOST A SENSE OF MADNESS, REALLY, THAT CHURCHES THROUGHOUT HISTORY
  • 19:23 WOULD JUST NOT EVEN LOOK INTO THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL AND ISRAEL'S WALK WITH GOD
  • 19:31 IN ORDER TO LEARN HOW TO WALK WITH GOD NOW. IT'S SAD.
  • 19:36 IT'S IRONIC.IT'S PAINFUL.
  • 19:38 AND IN ITS WORST CASE IT'S DANGEROUS, BECAUSE WE ARE GIVEN OVER TO ERROR.
  • 19:43 WE ARE GIVEN OVER TO THE DECEPTIONS OF THE ENEMY.
  • 19:47 I THINK ABOUT WHAT WILL THE GREAT DECEPTION BE ...THE GREAT FALLING AWAY?
  • 19:51 I KNOW YOU WONDER AS WELL ARE WE ACTUALLY SEEING THAT ALREADY?
  • 19:55 WE UNDERSTAND THE MORAL ISSUES OF OUR DAY ARE PART OF THAT GREAT DECEPTION.
  • 19:59 WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE FURTHER WE DRIFT FROM THE TENETS OF THIS BOOK AND THE WORD OF THE LORD HOW FAR WE CAN FALL.
  • 20:07 WE GET THAT, BUT IS THE GREAT DECEPTION THIS DIVIDE OVER ISRAEL?
  • 20:14 ARE WE SEEING, AS I HEARD ROSEMARY SAY YESTERDAY,
  • 20:18 ARE WE SEEING THE NATIONS NOW MAKING THEIR DECISIONS
  • 20:21 ABOUT WHO THEY WILL STAND WITH AND HOW THEY WILL STAND?
  • 20:26 WE'RE IN THAT DAY.
  • 20:27 WE'RE LIVING IN THAT DAY AND THE DECEPTION IS SO POWERFUL
  • 20:31 THAT GUT SHOT FEELING YOU HAVE WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER ANTI-SEMITISM OR ANTI-ISRAELISM, ANTI-ZIONISM,
  • 20:39 WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER THAT IT'S ALSO A VISCERAL ATTACK AGAINST GOD AND HIS WORD.
  • 20:45 I REMEMBER A FEW YEARS AGO DAVID RUBIN, THE FORMER MAYOR OF SHILOH,
  • 20:50 WAS COMING TO THE BAY AREA TO SPEAK TO SEVERAL GROUPS
  • 20:53 AND I WAS SPEAKING TO HIM FROM SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA TO ISRAEL.
  • 21:00 HE SAID, MYLES, YOU DON'T HAVE TO FIND ME A KOSHER HOME LIKE YOU DID LAST TIME.
  • 21:05 I CAN STAY AT A HOTEL OR EVEN AT A MESSIANIC HOME.
  • 21:08 THEN WE TALKED ABOUT, HE'S AN ORTHODOX OBSERVANT JEWISH PERSON.
  • 21:13 HE LIVES IN AN ORTHODOX BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY.
  • 21:15 BY THE WAY, THE IDEA OF SETTLEMENTS
  • 21:18 IS ONE OF THE MOST DECEPTIVE MISNOMERS THAT'S EVER BEEN PUT OUT IN THE WORLD
  • 21:24 REGARDING THE JEWISH OCCUPATION OF THEIR OWN LAND.
  • 21:28 THERE IS NO OCCUPATION OF ARAB LANDS FOLKS.
  • 21:31 THERE IS AN OCCUPATION OR A RESETTLING
  • 21:34 OR A RETURN OR A RESTORATION BY THE JEWISH PEOPLE OF JUDEA AND SAMARIA
  • 21:39 THE LAND THAT THEY WERE GIVEN BY GOD 4,000 YEARS AGO.
  • 21:42 AND THE COMMUNITIES ARE GORGEOUS.THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL.
  • 21:46 I REMEMBER I HAD FORTY PASTORS WITH ME
  • 21:49 AND THEY WANTED TO BUY A HOUSE IN KATZRIN WAY UP NORTH ON THE GOLAN
  • 21:53 BECAUSE IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL IT LOOKED LIKE SONOMA COUNTY.
  • 21:55 THEY THOUGHT, WE CAN LIVE HERE.
  • 21:57 WE'LL CHIP IN, WE'LL BUY A HOUSE.THEY'RE SO CHEAP.
  • 21:59 I SAID, WELL THEY'RE SO CHEAP BECAUSE THERE'S 40,000 ROCKETS POINTED AT THEM RIGHT NOW
  • 22:03 BUT FEEL FREE. [LAUGHTER]
  • 22:06 I CAN FIND US A REALTOR.
  • 22:08 BUT DAVID RUBIN WAS ON HIS WAY TO SPEAK TO THESE PASTORS AND HE SAID THAT TO ME ON THE PHONE.
  • 22:14 THEN WE TALKED ABOUT POLITICS AND THE USUAL CONVERSATION WE WOULD HAVE ON THE PHONE.
  • 22:18 THEN I SAID, DAVID, I JUST HAVE TO GO BACK TO SOMETHING YOU SAID.
  • 22:22 AND HE LAUGHED FROM ISRAEL TO CALIFORNIA.
  • 22:26 HE LAUGHED AND HE SAID, YOU MEAN ABOUT WHERE I STAY?
  • 22:29 AND I SAID, YES, I HAVE TO REVISIT THAT.
  • 22:32 BECAUSE LAST YEAR I PUT YOU IN A CHABAD HOUSE.
  • 22:36 I PUT HIM IN A VERY ORTHODOX, RELIGIOUS PLACE AND HE WAS OKAY THERE.
  • 22:42 HE SAID, YOU KNOW, MYLES, I'M REALLY OKAY STAYING IN A HOTEL OR STAYING WITH MESSIANICS.
  • 22:51 IN FACT, I FIND THAT I HAVE MORE IN COMMON WITH THE MESSIANIC BELIEVERS
  • 22:56 THAN I DO WITH THE CONSERVATIVE AND REFORM JEWS.
  • 23:00 I THOUGHT, WE ARE IN A NEW DAY. [AMEN]
  • 23:06 WE'VE KNOWN THAT FOR TEN YEARS
  • 23:08 WHEN WE FIRST MET DAVID AT ROSEMARY'S CHRISTIAN ZIONIST CONGRESS IN CALIFORNIA
  • 23:13 AND WE HEARD HIS STORY AND I WROTE HIM THE BIGGEST CHECK I COULD
  • 23:16 AND THOUGHT I'M GOING TO SUPPORT HIM UNTIL I DIE, SUPPORT WHAT THEY'RE DOING.
  • 23:21 THEY HAVE A THERAPY CENTER FOR CHILDREN WHO HAVE BEEN THE VICTIMS OF TERROR.
  • 23:25 IT IS WONDERFUL TO BEHOLD.
  • 23:28 SO DAVID, I JUST HAD TO REVISIT THAT WITH HIM.
  • 23:33 WHEN HE SAID THAT HE HAD MORE IN COMMON
  • 23:35 I SAID, SO REALLY WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
  • 23:37 IS THAT THE WORLD IS DIVIDING NOW BETWEEN REAL, GENUINE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK
  • 23:43 AND PEOPLE NOT OF THE BOOK.
  • 23:46 AND ALL THE OTHER DIVISIONS ARE LESS SO, THEY'RE MINOR.
  • 23:50 IT'S NOT THAT WE ALL UNDERSTAND THE WORD PERFECTLY OR WE CAN FOLLOW IT PERFECTLY
  • 23:54 OR THAT WE'RE DOING AS WELL AS WE WANT TO DO OR NEED TO DO REGARDING IT,
  • 23:57 BUT THE REVERENCE FOR THE BIBLE AND THE INTEREST IN IT
  • 24:01 AND THE LIVING WORD THAT COMES WITH THE BIBLE
  • 24:04 IS A DIVIDING LINE THAT LEADS TO WHAT I BELIEVE IS THIS GREAT FALLING AWAY,
  • 24:11 THIS GREAT DECEPTION.
  • 24:13 WE SEE IT MORALLY.
  • 24:14 WE SEE IT WITH THE MORAL ISSUES OF OUR DAY AND I LOVE ALL THOSE ISSUES.
  • 24:17 THEY'RE IMPORTANT, BUT I ALWAYS COME BACK TO THE REALITY
  • 24:21 THAT THIS THING ABOUT ISRAEL AND THE JEWISHNESS OF THE GOSPEL
  • 24:27 AND THE JEWISHNESS OF JESUS
  • 24:29 AND THE CHURCH AWAKENING AND ALLOWING JESUS TO BE WHO HE IS, YESHUA, IS THE DIVIDING ISSUE.
  • 24:38 IT'S THE MOST VIOLENT ISSUE.
  • 24:41 THERE IS VIOLENCE AROUND THE MORAL ISSUES
  • 24:45 AND THERE IS A LOT OF INTEREST AND A LOT OF ENERGY AROUND THE OTHER ISSUES,
  • 24:49 BUT THIS IS THE ONE WHERE MICHAEL OREN, THE AMBASSADOR OF THE UNITED STATES,
  • 24:54 GETS SHOUTED DOWN AT AN AMERICAN UNIVERSITY AND ISN'T ALLOWED TO SPEAK.
  • 24:58 OR NETANYAHU WHO HAS TO CANCEL AT AN AMERICAN UNIVERSITY.
  • 25:01 OR OTHER SPEAKERS COME FROM ISRAEL
  • 25:03 AND THEY ARE SHUT DOWN BY ISLAMIC STUDENTS AND NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK.
  • 25:10 I THOUGHT THIS ISSUE OF ISRAEL TOUCHES THE FREEDOMS
  • 25:14 THAT WE ARE GIVEN BY GOD AND OUR CONSTITUTION IN OUR COUNTRY.
  • 25:20 IT TOUCHES THE FREEDOMS AROUND THE WORLD
  • 25:22 AND TOUCHES EVERYTHING ELSE.
  • 25:25 IF WE GET THIS ONE RIGHT WE CAN GET THE REST OF IT RIGHT.
  • 25:34 I NEVER GET TIRED OF HEARING MYLES PREACH ABOUT
  • 25:38 WHERE WE ARE IN THE PROPHETIC TIMETABLE OF THE LORD.
  • 25:40 YOU KNOW IN 1948 GOD RESTORED THE NATION.
  • 25:43 IN 1967 HE RESTORED THE PEOPLE.
  • 25:45 NOW WE'RE SEEING EVEN MORE PROPHETIC UNDERSTANDING OF HIM RESTORING THEM FROM...
  • 25:50 SO MUCH GRACE IS BEING POURED OUT ON THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 25:53 AND THEY'RE COMING FORTH AS HIS END TIMES PEOPLE.
  • 25:56 WE LOVE TO BE ABLE TO SHARE THESE MESSAGES WITH YOU
  • 25:59 AND THE THINGS THAT GOD IS LAYING ON OUR HEARTS TO BRING TO OUR VIEWERS.
  • 26:03 BUT WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS.
  • 26:06 WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANY LITTLE BIT THAT YOU CAN DO,
  • 26:10 BIG OR SMALL, IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE FOR US TO BE ABLE TO GO AND RECORD
  • 26:14 AND BRING YOU THESE MESSAGES THAT I KNOW YOU'RE ENJOYING TOO.
  • 26:17 MYLES HAS OFTEN SAID TO ME WE'RE GOING TO ONLY REGRET
  • 26:20 THAT WHICH WE DIDN'T DO MORE OF AND MUCH MORE OF GIVING,
  • 26:24 MUCH MORE OF SENDING, MUCH MORE OF SPEAKING ABOUT THE LORD.
  • 26:28 SO LET'S BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF WHAT THE LORD IS SAYING.
  • 26:31 LET'S BE ALIGNED WITH HIM AND HIS PLAN FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND FOR THE WHOLE WORLD,
  • 26:37 THAT THE WHOLE WORLD WOULD KNOW THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB.
  • 26:41 THAT'S REALLY A GOOD MESSAGE. THANK YOU.
  • 26:43 YOU KNOW THAT'S REALLY TRUE.
  • 26:45 WE LOVE TO BRING YOU THESE MESSAGES.
  • 26:47 WE NEED YOUR HELP TO DO IT.
  • 26:49 WE THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH US AS WE DO THIS.
  • 26:51 SO, UNTIL WE SEE YOU AGAIN, REMEMBER
  • 26:55 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM...
  • 26:57 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
