Caption transcript for Future Congress 2: “Three Friends of Israel” (7/7)

  • 00:02 (Voice of Bill Koenig)
  • 00:04 LOOK, WORRY MORE ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING IN CHRISTIANITY IN EUROPE AND IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY.
  • 00:07 WORRY MORE ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THE CHRISTIANS THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 00:11 THAT ARE BEING PERSECUTED IN RECORD NUMBERS.
  • 00:13 WHY DON'T YOU START FOCUSING ON WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT
  • 00:16 AND LEAVE GOD'S BUSINESS ON THE PROMISED COVENANT LAND TO HIMSELF AND GET OUT OF THE WAY.
  • 01:02 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 01:05 I'M MYLES WEISS.
  • 01:06 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS
  • 01:07 AND WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 01:09 MYLES YOU HAD A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO FILM A LOT OF AMAZING PEOPLE AT THE FUTURE CONGRESS II.
  • 01:15 I WAS ABLE TO AND ALONG WITH OUR CREW WE WERE ABLE TO INTERVIEW
  • 01:18 AUTHOR BILL SALUS SPEAKING ABOUT THE END-TIMES
  • 01:21 AND MEDIA CORRESPONDENT BILL KOENIG WHO REALLY GIVES THE TRUTH ABOUT
  • 01:25 WHAT'S GOING ON IN ISRAEL AND AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 01:28 AND THE LATE JACK KINSELLA IN ONE OF HIS LAST INTERVIEWS.
  • 01:31 WHAT A PRIVILEGE TO HEAR FROM HIM.
  • 01:33 WE WERE ABLE TO INTERVIEW HIM ABOUT THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.
  • 01:36 WE'LL HEAR HIM SPEAK ABOUT IT IN A VERY INTERESTING WAY
  • 01:39 WITH GREAT CLARITY REGARDING WHERE WE ARE
  • 01:42 AND THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CHURCH,
  • 01:44 THE BELIEVING COMMUNITY,
  • 01:46 THE COMMUNITY OF FAITH,
  • 01:47 THE INTERNATIONAL CHURCH,
  • 01:48 UNDERSTANDING AND STANDING WITH ISRAEL.
  • 01:52 IT IS SO IMPORTANT AND I THINK THAT THAT IS WHAT JACK IS GOING TO SPEAK TO.
  • 01:56 RIGHT...GOD, HE SCATTERED THE PEOPLE.
  • 01:59 HE SCATTERED THE JEWS,
  • 02:00 BUT WE'RE IN THE TIME OF THE REGATHERING.
  • 02:03 REGATHERING AND RESTORATION.
  • 02:05 AND RESTORATION IS ACCELERATING.
  • 02:06 THE RESTORATION OF THEM BEING AS THEIR OWN PEOPLE
  • 02:10 AND NOW TAKING THE GOSPEL BACK OUT FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 02:13 EXACTLY SO.
  • 02:14 IT'S SO EXCITING.
  • 02:15 EZEKIEL SAYS IN EZEKIEL 36:24,
  • 02:26 IT'S GOD'S LAND AND HE DESIGNED THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE WOULD BE THERE
  • 02:30 AND IT'S A SIGN FOR US THAT HE'S IN CHARGE
  • 02:33 AND WE JUST NEED TO STAND WITH THE MAN WHO'S IN CHARGE.
  • 02:36 SO LET'S GO NOW AND HEAR MORE FROM JACK.
  • 02:40 THE BIBLE SPEAKS TO TODAY IN A WAY THAT OTHER GENERATIONS
  • 02:47 THEY WERE LOOKING FOR BUT THEY NEVER DID SEE.
  • 02:49 WE HAVE MADE THIS SHIFT OVER
  • 02:53 FROM LOOKING FOR THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES
  • 02:56 AND TO LIVING IN THE TIMES OF THE SIGNS.
  • 02:58 SO THESE SIGNS ARE EVERYWHERE, BUT THEY'RE CONFUSING.
  • 03:01 THEY'RE CHAOTIC.
  • 03:03 IF YOU DON'T HAVE SOME KIND OF AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THEY FIT INTO GOD'S PLAN
  • 03:06 IT LOOKS LIKE EVERYTHING IS FLYING OFF THE HANDLE.
  • 03:09 BUT THAT IS ESSENTIALLY WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 03:12 IT SAYS THAT WHEN THESE THINGS LOOK LIKE THEY'RE AT THEIR VERY WORST
  • 03:18 JESUS SAID WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS,
  • 03:21 LOOK UP AND LIFT UP YOUR HEAD FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NIGH.
  • 03:25 THERE'S ONE THINGS THAT IS HAPPENING THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE
  • 03:29 AND THAT'S THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL IN 1948,
  • 03:32 WHICH STARTED THE CLOCK TICKING.
  • 03:33 YOU SEE WHEN JESUS WAS SITTING ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
  • 03:37 AND SPEAKING TO THE CROWD THAT WAS LISTENING,
  • 03:41 HE WAS SPEAKING IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 03:46 YET THEY WERE SITTING ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES LOOKING DOWN AT AN EXISTING TEMPLE
  • 03:49 WHEN THEY WERE LIVING WITHIN A JEWISH COMMUNITY IN ISRAEL.
  • 03:53 SO FOR THEM EVERYTHING WAS FUTURE.
  • 03:56 THEN 40 YEARS LATER WITH THE DESTRUCTION AND THE DISPERSAL,
  • 03:59 THE DESTRUCTION OF THE CITY AND THE DISPERSAL OF THE JEWS,
  • 04:02 THEN SOME OF IT WAS FUTURE SOME IT WAS PAST.
  • 04:05 FOR THE NEXT 2,000 YEARS THE PEOPLE WERE LOOKING TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT.
  • 04:10 THERE WAS LOTS AND LOTS OF EFFORTS TO LINK EARTHQUAKES
  • 04:14 AND FAMINES WARS AND PESTILENCES AND THINGS TO BIBLE PROPHECY,
  • 04:18 BUT NONE OF THEM HAD ANYTHING TO HANG ON.
  • 04:20 THERE WAS NO HANDLE UNTIL THERE WAS A LITERAL PLACE CALLED ISRAEL
  • 04:24 FROM WHICH ALL THESE THINGS COULD BE VIEWED
  • 04:27 BECAUSE IT'S AN ISSUE OF PERSPECTIVE.
  • 04:29 IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE PERSPECTIVE JESUS WAS COMING FROM
  • 04:33 THEN YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW.
  • 04:35 YOU SEE ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT HAVE ALWAYS EXISTED -
  • 04:38 NATION AGAINST NATION, KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM, EARTHQUAKES, AND SO FORTH.
  • 04:43 JESUS SAID THAT THESE THINGS WOULD CONTINUE TO EXIST
  • 04:47 BUT THAT WITH THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL, WITH THE BLOSSOMING OF THE FIG TREE,
  • 04:51 YOU WOULD SEE THESE THINGS BEGIN TO ACCELERATE.
  • 04:55 YOU LOOK AT THE FACT THAT ISRAEL WAS RESTORED IN 1948
  • 04:59 AND THAT THE PROPHET DANIEL PROPHESIED THAT THERE WOULD BE A REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE
  • 05:05 WHICH WAS BORN UNDER THE BENELUX TREATY OF 1948
  • 05:08 AND THAT REVELATION PROMISES A GLOBAL ECONOMY AND THE CURRENT WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION
  • 05:16 WAS BORN UNDER THE GATT TREATY, WHICH WAS PUBLISHED IN 1948,
  • 05:19 AND THERE WOULD BE A GLOBAL GOVERNMENT
  • 05:21 THAT WOULD PRETTY MUCH COVER ALL OF THE WESTERN CIVILIZATION
  • 05:28 AND YOU LOOK AT THE FACT THAT THE UNITED NATION DECLARATION OF CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS,
  • 05:32 WHICH IS THEIR CONSTITUTION, WHICH FORMS THE BASIS FOR MOST DEMOCRATIC STATES NOW
  • 05:38 YOU SEE THAT ALL THESE THINGS...
  • 05:40 AND THAT WAS ALSO SIGNED IN 1948.
  • 05:42 YOU SEE THAT THIS IS A PIVOTAL YEAR FOR SOME REASON.
  • 05:45 IT'S THE YEAR THAT EVERYTHING BEGAN TO HAPPEN IN AN EXPONENTIAL WAY.
  • 05:50 ISRAEL STANDS AS A VISIBLE REMINDER TO THE GOD OF THIS WORLD
  • 05:55 THAT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE DOESN'T BREAK HIS PROMISES.
  • 05:58 WHEN THE GOD OF THIS WORLD...
  • 06:01 WHEN SATAN LOOKED AND HE SAW THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL,
  • 06:03 HE KNEW THAT HIS NUMBER WAS UP.
  • 06:05 HE HAS TRIED TO DESTROY THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 06:07 TO BREAK THAT PROPHECY FOR ALL THESE THOUSANDS OF YEARS, YET THERE ISRAEL STANDS.
  • 06:12 SO THE PRINCE AND THE POWER OF THE AIR WHO RUNS THE UNITED NATIONS,
  • 06:16 THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO SAY IT.
  • 06:20 THE SPIRIT OF THE UNITED NATIONS IS NOTHING BUT DEMONIC.
  • 06:23 THEY LOOK AT ISRAEL AND THEY SEE THEY'RE DOOM WRITTEN LARGE ON THIS TINY LITTLE COUNTRY
  • 06:31 UNLESS THEY CAN DO SOMETHING TO GET RID OF IT.
  • 06:34 I READ THAT THEY PASSED FORTY-TWO ANTI-ISRAELI RESOLUTIONS IN THE PAST YEAR
  • 06:38 AND FOUR AGAINST EVERYBODY ELSE.
  • 06:41 NOW LOOK AT WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE IS.
  • 06:44 WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SYRIA, KILLED 60,000 OF THEIR OWN PEOPLE.
  • 06:47 THEY'RE DEVELOPING NEW CHEMICAL WEAPONS.
  • 06:50 WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IRAN DEVELOPING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
  • 06:53 WE WENT IN AND WE DESTROYED LIBYA
  • 06:56 AND THEN WE ALLOWED THE AL QAEDA TO MOVE IN AND TAKE OVER THERE.
  • 07:03 WE'VE DEPOSED MUBARAK AND WE'VE ALLOWED THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TO TAKE OVER THERE.
  • 07:08 SO THESE THINGS DON'T MAKE ANY SENSE OUTSIDE OF A CONTEXT,
  • 07:12 BUT THE CONTEXT THAT ISRAEL MEANS THE DOOM
  • 07:15 OF ALL OF THESE BUREAUCRATS AT THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE SPIRIT BEHIND THEM
  • 07:25 NECESSITATES THIS CONSTANT ASSAULT AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 07:29 THEN OF COURSE THERE'S THE SECULAR WORLD THAT JUST HATES THE IDEA THAT GOD EXISTS
  • 07:34 AND SO THAT TAKES CARE OF THE MEDIA.
  • 07:36 THEY HAVE NO LOVE FOR ISRAEL EITHER.
  • 07:38 WHAT IT DOES IN A CURIOUS WAY IS IT FORCES YOU TO LOOK AT WHY NOBODY LOVES ISRAEL
  • 07:43 AND IT'S BECAUSE GOD LOVES ISRAEL.
  • 07:45 SO FOR THAT REASON CHRISTIANS SHOULD LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 07:49 I LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 07:53 JACK DID LOVE ISRAEL.
  • 07:54 HE WAS A WONDERFUL INTERVIEW FOR US.
  • 07:58 SOME OF HIS LAST DAYS WERE WITH US.
  • 08:00 IT REALLY WAS AN HONOR TO INTERVIEW HIM BEFORE HE WENT TO HEAVEN.
  • 08:04 WE'RE GOING TO GO TO MY INTERVIEW WITH BILL KOENIG.
  • 08:07 BILL KOENIG IS A MEDIA CORRESPONDENT.
  • 08:09 HIS NEW SITE IS WATCH.ORG AND HE DOES JUST THAT.
  • 08:12 HE HAS A BEELINE ON THE INFORMATION COMING OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST,
  • 08:16 ACTUALLY THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 08:18 YOU'LL HEAR HIM REFER TO CHRIST AT THE CHECKPOINT.
  • 08:21 THAT WAS A REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY FESTIVAL THAT WAS HELD IN BETHLEHEM.
  • 08:26 IT ACTUALLY HAS NOW GONE ON THE ROAD UNDER THE BANNER OF HOPE FOR ISRAEL.
  • 08:31 BUT THE ESSENCE OF IT IS REALLY ANTI-ISRAEL, ANTI-JEWISH ISRAEL.
  • 08:35 SO YOU'LL HEAR HIM REFER TO THAT.
  • 08:37 WE HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK TO IT IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AS THAT CONFERENCE CAME OUR WAY.
  • 08:41 WE NEED TO BE INFORMED
  • 08:43 SO THAT WE CAN SPEAK TO THESE ISSUES WITH COMPASSION FOR OUR ARAB COUSINS
  • 08:47 BUT WITH REALITY AND WITH TRUTH.
  • 08:49 SO LET'S GO TO MY INTERVIEW WITH BILL KOENIG.
  • 08:53 THERE IS AN ATTEMPT AT DELEGITIMIZING ISRAEL IN POLITICAL CIRCLES,
  • 08:58 IN THE CHURCH, THE REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY PART OF THE CHURCH.
  • 09:01 THE PROTESTANTS AND THE CATHOLICS THEY'RE SPEAKING OUT MORE AND MORE
  • 09:04 ABOUT IT'S TIME FOR ISRAEL TO LEAVE THE OCCUPIED LAND OR THE ARAB LAND.
  • 09:09 JUDEA, SUMARIA, EAST JERUSALEM - NO, NO, THAT'S NOT ARAB LAND.
  • 09:13 THAT'S A BIG CONCERN,
  • 09:14 BUT ALSO THE FACT THAT WE CONTINUE TO HAVE A PROBLEM
  • 09:17 WITH CNN, BBC, AND THE NEW YORK TIMES.
  • 09:20 THESE ARE THREE NEWS ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE NOT PRO-ISRAEL
  • 09:24 AND HAVE CREATED A LOT OF PROBLEMS FOR ISRAEL
  • 09:27 AS WELL AS SOME OF THE OTHER EUROPEAN NEWSPAPERS, NEWS ORGANIZATIONS,
  • 09:30 AND THERE'S A COUPLE OF OTHERS IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 09:32 WHAT WE HAVE IS A MEDIA BIAS FOR THE MOST PART THAT IS ANTI-ISRAEL AND PRO-ARAB,
  • 09:40 PRO-HAMAS, PRO-PALESTINIAN, WHICH IS REALLY HARD TO BELIEVE.
  • 09:46 YOU'VE GOT LEFTIST JOURNALISTS WHO CAN'T SEE IT FOR WHAT IT IS IN ISRAEL.
  • 09:50 THEY'VE BEEN LIVING RIGHT THERE IN HARMS WAY.
  • 09:52 THEY'RE CALLING FOR ISRAEL TO GIVE UP THIS CRITICAL LAND
  • 09:55 AND THEN YOU HAVE THESE LEFT LEANING, NOT LEFT LEANING, LEFTIST CHRISTIANS.
  • 10:02 YOU HAVE BISHOPS FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 10:06 THAT SEES NO CONNECTION
  • 10:08 THAT ISRAEL HAS NO RIGHT TO MAKE ANY BIBLICAL CONNECTION TO THIS LAND TODAY.
  • 10:12 YOU HAVE PRIESTS AND SOME FATHERS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 10:17 THAT HAVE MADE THE SAME STATEMENTS.
  • 10:19 THE WORLD COUNSEL CHURCHES, THE NATIONAL COUNSEL CHURCHES
  • 10:22 SPONSORING PALESTINIAN LIBERATION MEETINGS.
  • 10:26 THE SIBEL FOUNDATION AND OTHERS HAVING THESE INTERNATIONAL EVENTS
  • 10:30 CONTINUING TO ATTEMPT TO ISOLATE ISRAEL AS IF IT'S THE PROBLEM
  • 10:36 AND AS IF IT'S THE REASON THERE'S NOT PEACE IN ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 10:40 MY MESSAGE TO THESE GUYS IN EUROPE RIGHT NOW AND SOME OF THESE OTHER APOLOGISTS,
  • 10:45 TONY CAMPELLO AND BILL HYBEL'S WIFE AND OTHERS
  • 10:50 THAT WERE JUST AT THE CHRIST AT THE CHECKPOINT EVENT THERE IN BETHLEHEM.
  • 10:55 HEY LOOK, WORRY MORE ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING IN CHRISTIANITY IN EUROPE AND IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY.
  • 11:00 WORRY MORE ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THE CHRISTIANS THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 11:05 THAT ARE BEGIN PERSECUTED IN RECORD NUMBERS.
  • 11:07 WHY DON'T YOU START FOCUSING ON WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT
  • 11:10 AND LEAVE GOD'S BUSINESS ON THE PROMISED COVENANT LAND TO HIMSELF AND GET OUT OF THE WAY.

  • 14:00 LET'S GO BACK NOW TO MORE INTERVIEWS.
  • 14:05 THE JEWISH CORRESPONDENCE
  • 14:06 AND THE MIDDLE EASTERN CORRESPONDENCE,
  • 14:07 WE ALL GET ALONG GREAT.
  • 14:09 IT'S REALLY PRETTY NEAT.
  • 14:10 THERE'S GREAT RAPPORT AMONGST US ALL.
  • 14:12 I THOUGHT IF WE EVER HAD TO PUT A PEACE DEAL TOGETHER OBVIOUSLY WE WOULDN'T BE PARTING THE LAND
  • 14:17 BUT THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WANT PEACE.
  • 14:20 UNFORTUNATELY IN A LOT OF CASES IN THE MIDDLE EAST IT'S THE RADICALS THAT HAVE TAKEN OVER.
  • 14:25 A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE EXCITED ABOUT THE GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK AND TWITTER EFFORT
  • 14:29 THERE IN EGYPT BY THESE YOUNG, COLLEGE EDUCATED YOUNGSTERS
  • 14:33 THAT ARE ATTEMPTING TO OVERTHROW MUBARAK,
  • 14:36 WHICH WERE USED TO OVERTHROW MUBARAK,
  • 14:39 BUT AS SOON AS THIS HAPPENED,
  • 14:42 THE SALAFIST AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD JUST MOVED THEM ASIDE
  • 14:45 BECAUSE THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE WAS ALREADY IN PLACE.
  • 14:47 WE KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED SINCE THEN.
  • 14:49 A LOT OF THE WASHINGTON THINK-TANKS THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A GREAT STORY.
  • 14:52 I SAID, NO, NO, NO, IT'LL BE EXACTLY WHAT IT'S TURNED OUT TO BE - A MESS.
  • 14:58 WELL THE ARAB SPRING IT'S A GREAT IDEA IF IT EXISTED.
  • 15:02 WHAT IT IS IS THIS IS A MEDIA CONSTRUCT.
  • 15:04 IT'S A MEDIA POLITICAL CONSTRUCT.
  • 15:06 IT'S SOME WAY TO EXPLAIN HOW...
  • 15:08 WHY IT WAS OKAY FOR US TO DROP THE BALL,
  • 15:11 BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 15:13 WE DROPPED THE BALL.
  • 15:15 PEOPLE CAN ARGUE THAT THEY GOT RID OF A BUNCH OF REPRESSIVE DICTATORS, AND MAYBE THEY DID,
  • 15:22 BUT THEY REPLACED THEM WITH MORE REPRESSIVE DICTATORS THAT ARE WAY LESS FRIENDLY TO THE WEST
  • 15:27 AND WAY LESS FRIENDLY TO ISRAEL
  • 15:29 AND WAY LESS FRIENDLY TO EVERYTHING THAT THE WESTERN WORLD HOLDS DEAR.
  • 15:35 IN ORDER TO NOT TAKE THE BLAME FOR THAT, IF I'M SAYING IT RIGHT,
  • 15:42 IN ORDER TO PASS THE BLAME OFF TO SOMEBODY ELSE, THE MEDIA,
  • 15:46 WHICH PRETTY MUCH BELONGS TO THE US GOVERNMENT AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT,
  • 15:51 HAS DEVELOPED THIS INVENTION, THIS CONSTRUCT AN ARAB SPRING.
  • 15:55 IT SOUNDS NICE.
  • 15:56 IT SOUNDS WONDERFUL, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT
  • 15:59 THE ARAB SPRING WAS OVER A LONG TIME AGO AND WE'RE WELL INTO A COLD WINTER NOW.
  • 16:07 THERE WERE SEVERAL OF US AROUND THE WORLD THAT KNEW THE ARAB SPRINGS SO-CALLED WAS GOING TO BE SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 16:13 I CALLED IT THE ARAB SPRINGBOARD FOR THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD
  • 16:16 BECAUSE I KNEW THAT IT WAS GOING TO DO IN FACT WHAT IT HAS DONE.
  • 16:19 THE NEXT THINGS THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN CONVENTIONAL WARFARE IN THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 16:24 WILL BE A PSALM 83 WAR WITH THE ARAB NATIONS AND ISRAEL GOING AT IT.
  • 16:28 THAT IS PROPHESIED IN PSALM 83.
  • 16:31 LET'S GO TO MY INTERVIEW WITH BILL SALUS WHO'S GOING TO EXPLAIN THAT TO YOU.
  • 16:36 IT CAME OUT JUNE OF 2008
  • 16:38 AND REALLY THE CENTRAL THEME OF ISRAELISTINE IS THE PSALM 83,
  • 16:42 THE CONCLUDING ARAB ISRAELI WAR.
  • 16:45 SO ISRAELISTINE ADDRESSED THE PRELUDE,
  • 16:48 THE ACTUALLY EPIC BATTLE AND WHAT OCCURS IN THE AFTERMATH.
  • 16:51 IT'S QUITE INTERESTING THAT THIS IS A PROPHECY 3,000 YEARS OLD
  • 16:55 THAT HASN'T GOTTEN A LOT OF COMMENTARY BASED UPON IT.
  • 16:58 IT WAS ABOUT A TEN YEAR WORK TO GET IT TO THE STAGE WHERE IT WAS AT AT THAT TIME
  • 17:03 AND NOW IT'S GOT PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF READING IT
  • 17:05 AND VERY CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT COULD HAPPEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST NEXT WITH THE ARABS AND THE JEWS
  • 17:10 AFTER SEPTEMBER 11 I WAS VERY CONCERNED AS WAS THE COUNTRY.
  • 17:16 I WAS LISTENING TO A LOT OF THE INTERVIEWS THAT WERE GOING ON
  • 17:20 AND PEOPLE WERE ASKING QUESTIONS OF THE CHURCH.
  • 17:23 WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
  • 17:24 IS THIS IN THE BIBLE?
  • 17:26 IS THIS ARMAGEDDON?
  • 17:27 REALLY I FELT THAT THE ANSWERS DEPICTED A CHURCH THAT WAS ASLEEP,
  • 17:32 THAT REALLY WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
  • 17:35 THERE'S AN ABUNDANCE OF INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 17:38 THAT WAS ABOUT TERRORISM.
  • 17:40 TERRORISM IS THE UGLY BYPRODUCT OF THE ARAB ISRAELI CONFLICT.
  • 17:43 THE BIBLE HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT TODAY'S ARAB ISRAELI CONFLICT,
  • 17:47 WHICH CULMINATES, I BELIEVE, IN THE CONCLUDING WAR OF PSALM 83.
  • 17:50 I EMBARKED UPON JUST BIBLE STUDIES FROM MY OWN UNDERSTANDING.
  • 17:55 I WAS ALWAYS INTERESTED IN PROPHECY AND THERE'S PLENTY OF GREAT BOOKS ABOUT THE RAPTURE
  • 18:00 AND THE ANTI-CHRIST AND EZEKIEL 38 AND THESE TYPES OF THINGS,
  • 18:05 BUT THERE WASN'T A LOT SAID ABOUT PSALM 83 AND THE ARAB ISRAELI CONFLICT.
  • 18:09 SO I DECIDED I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT I FELT WAS THE PROPHECY FOR OUR TIME.
  • 18:13 I FELT A BURDEN TO CHRONOLOGICALLY ORDER THE PROPHECIES
  • 18:18 FROM NOW UNTIL THE 2ND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST
  • 18:21 WHEN HE SETS UP THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM IN REVELATION 20, VERSE 4.
  • 18:25 BUT ONE BOOK IS NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH TO GET ALL OF THAT IN.
  • 18:28 IT'S GOING TO REQUIRE THREE BOOKS.
  • 18:29 SO I HAVE A ROAD TRILOGY.
  • 18:30 REVELATION ROAD WILL BE THE FIRST BOOK,
  • 18:32 APOCALYPSE ROAD WILL BE THE SECOND BOOK
  • 18:34 AND TRIBULATION ROAD WILL BE THE THIRD BOOK.
  • 18:36 I WANTED TO DO IT IN A WAY WHERE THE PROPHECIES COULD BE UNDERSTOOD BY EVERYONE
  • 18:41 BECAUSE BIBLE PROPHECY IS NOT FOR THE SCHOLAR.
  • 18:43 IT'S FOR EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD.
  • 18:45 GOD'S NOT SOMEONE WITH TOO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS.
  • 18:47 HE HOLDS ALL TIMES IN HIS HANDS.
  • 18:49 HE DOESN'T ISSUE PROPHECY TO IMPRESS US BUT TO INFORM US.
  • 18:52 ANYBODY THAT WOULD BE SO INCLINED TO WANT TO KNOW THE PROPHETIC ASPECTS OF THE WORD OF GOD,
  • 18:58 WHICH IS ABOUT A THIRD OF THE BIBLE, I WANT TO MAKE IT SO THAT IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE TO ALL.
  • 19:04 SO I TRIED TO PAINT THE ENDTIMES STORY INTO A STORY LINE, A NOVEL,
  • 19:09 BUT ALSO GIVE BIBLICAL COMMENTARY.
  • 19:12 SO IT'S ACTUALLY A UNIQUE READING EXPERIENCE.
  • 19:15 IT'S A NOVEL, 180 PAGE NOVEL ABOUT A GRANDFATHER WHO BELIEVES HIS GRANDSON HAS BEEN BIRTHED IN THE FINAL GENERATION
  • 19:21 AND IT TAKES THEM THROUGH THE PSALM 83 WAR,
  • 19:23 THE STAGE SETTING FOR EZEKIEL 38, AND A LITTLE BIT MORE.
  • 19:27 THE NEXT BOOK WILL TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THAT.
  • 19:31 IT'S HARD FOR US TO UNDERSTAND IN AMERICA AND IN THE WEST,
  • 19:35 BUT AMERICA IS NOT THE CENTER OF GOD'S UNIVERSE.
  • 19:38 IT IS REALLY DIFFICULT FOR US TO BELIEVE,
  • 19:40 BUT REALLY GOD LOOKS UPON JERUSALEM AS THE CENTER OF HIS EARTH
  • 19:44 AND THEN OUT FORM THERE COME THE NATIONS, THE CONTINENTS, REALLY.
  • 19:47 THERE'S A GREAT MAP FROM THE 16TH CENTURY THAT HAS JERUSALEM AT THE CENTER
  • 19:51 AND THEN A LARGE WING COMING OFF TO EUROPE,
  • 19:53 ANOTHER ONE GOING OFF TO ASIA
  • 19:55 AND ANOTHER ONE TO AFRICA.
  • 19:57 REALLY, THAT'S GOD'S VIEW OF THE WORLD.
  • 19:59 JERUSALEM IS, AS HAS BEEN SAID, THE EPICENTER OF EVERYTHING THAT GOD IS DOING ON THE EARTH.
  • 20:06 WE ASKED OUR INTERVIEWEES,
  • 20:07 WHERE DOES AMERICA FIT IN AND WHAT DO YOU SEE COMING IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS.
  • 20:12 SO LET'S GO BACK TO MY INTERVIEW IN THE FUTURE CONGRESS II.
  • 20:18 WELL, I THINK AMERICA DID NOT ACHIEVE ITS SUPER-POWER STATUS BECAUSE OF OUR GREAT GRANDADDIES GOOD LOOKS.
  • 20:25 WE HAVE SPECIFIC PURPOSES.
  • 20:26 GOD ESTABLISHES THE NATIONS FOR HIS PURPOSES.
  • 20:29 WE WERE CALLED TO BE A REFUGE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE DIASPORA.
  • 20:34 THERE'S A REASON THERE ARE MORE JEWS LIVING HERE THAN ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD
  • 20:38 EXCEPT ISRAEL, WHICH JUST RECENTLY SURPASSED US.
  • 20:40 THERE ARE ABOUT 6 MILLION JEWS IN ISRAEL NOW.
  • 20:43 AMERICAN HAS ABOUT 5 MILLION JEWS.
  • 20:44 FRANCE IS THE NEAREST WITH ABOUT 483,000 JEWS. A BIG DROP OFF.
  • 20:49 CLEARLY WE WERE CALLED TO BE A REFUGE FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE DURING THE DIASPORA,
  • 20:52 BUT WE WERE ALSO CALLED TO BE INVOLVED IN THE REBIRTHING OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 20:57 IN 1948 HARRY S. TRUMAN WAS THE PRESIDENT AT THE TIME.
  • 21:00 HE WAS ONE OF THE LEADERS WHO HELPED GET THE U.N. RESOLUTION 181, THE PARTITION PLAN THROUGH IN 1947
  • 21:06 THAT ISRAEL WOULD BECOME A NATION.
  • 21:09 BUT ADDITIONALLY THE LORD CALLED THIS COUNTRY TO BE A BEACON OF CHRISTIANITY TO THE WORLD, TO PREACH THE GOSPEL.
  • 21:14 AND WE HAVE DONE THAT.
  • 21:15 WE'VE SENT MISSIONARIES OUT TO VARIOUS PARTS OF THE WORLD.
  • 21:18 BUT I'M VERY CONCERNED FOR THIS COUNTRY PRESENTLY.
  • 21:22 AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT IN HISTORY IT'S AS IF THERE'S NOBODY DRIVING THE BUS.
  • 21:26 THIS IS THE POINT WHERE CHRISTIANS NEED TO UNDERSTAND
  • 21:30 THAT THIS IS PART OF A DELIBERATE PLAN.
  • 21:32 THIS ISN'T CHAOS.
  • 21:33 THIS ISN'T CONFUSION.
  • 21:35 THIS IS THE UNFOLDING OF A CAREFULLY OUTLINED PLAN THAT WE'VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT,
  • 21:40 THAT GOD BEGAN TO TELL US ABOUT IN THE VERY EARLIEST PARTS OF GENESIS
  • 21:45 WHEN HE PROMISED US A REDEEMER THROUGH THE SEED OF WOMAN.
  • 21:49 FROM THAT MOMENT TO THIS, WE HAVE SEEN NOTHING TAKE PLACE EXCEPT TO TRY AND HIDE THAT,
  • 21:57 EXCEPT TO TRY AND KEEP THE FACT OF WHAT GOD IS DOING SEPARATE FROM WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON.
  • 22:05 THESE ARE DIFFICULT TIMES
  • 22:06 AND I KNOW YOU ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN ISRAEL.
  • 22:09 BUT AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A SURPRISE.
  • 22:13 THE PEACE PROCESS HAS NOT BROUGHT US PEACE
  • 22:16 AND IT'S ACCELERATING FINAL DAY EVENTS OF THE TIME
  • 22:20 WHEN ISAIAH 17:1 TALKS ABOUT THE TIME WHEN DAMASCUS WILL NO LONGER EXIST AS A CITY.
  • 22:26 YOU TALK ABOUT THE PSALM 83 COUNTRIES THAT ARE ALIGNING AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 22:32 YOU LOOK AT ISAIAH 19 ABOUT EGYPT AND THE DIVISION WITHIN THAT COUNTRY.
  • 22:37 IT'S PLAYING OUT.
  • 22:39 THE GOG MAGOG FORCE OF RUSSIA, TURKEY, IRAN, SUDAN, A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE.
  • 22:47 LIBYA POSSIBLY SOMALIA COMING AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 22:53 I THINK IT'S A WAKE UP CALL, MYLES, AND THIS COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE RIGHT,
  • 22:56 AND ESPECIALLY RIGHT WITH ISRAEL,
  • 22:58 BECAUSE IN GENESIS 12:2 AND 3,
  • 23:01 GOD'S FOREIGN POLICY TO ALL THE NATIONS WAS DELIVERED 4,000 YEARS AGO
  • 23:05 AND IT'S STILL IN PLACE.
  • 23:08 EVEN THOUGH THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND OUR AMERICAN PRESIDENTS ARE DISCONNECTED FROM IT AND NOT AWARE OF IT,
  • 23:12 IT'S STILL IN PLACE.
  • 23:13 THAT IS IF YOU BLESS ABRAHAM, YOU'LL BE BLESSED.
  • 23:16 IF YOU CURSE ABRAHAM, YOU'LL BE CURSED.
  • 23:18 IT'S A STRONG LANGUAGE.
  • 23:19 YOU MUST BE CURSED IF YOU DON'T.
  • 23:21 SO THAT EXTRAPOLATES THROUGH ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB ONTO THE JEWISH PEOPLE TODAY.
  • 23:27 NOW AMERICA HAS BLESSED ISRAEL
  • 23:30 BUT PRESENTLY, FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS WE'VE BEEN ASKING ISRAEL TO DIVIDE LAND FOR PEACE,
  • 23:35 WHICH IS THE VERY THING WE'RE TOLD IN JOEL 3:2,
  • 23:37 WHEN THE LORD GATHERS THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD, ARMIES OF THE WORLD,
  • 23:42 INTO THE VALLEY OF JEHOSHAPHAT FOR THE ARMAGEDDON BATTLE AND CAMPAIGN
  • 23:48 HE SAYS BECAUSE YOU SENT MY PEOPLE OUT INTO THE NATIONS AND ALSO YOU DIVIDED MY LAND.
  • 23:53 THE VERY THING THAT GOD JUDGES THE NATIONS FOR.
  • 24:00 [Music]
  • 24:57 IF YOU'RE HEARING THESE MESSAGES TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.
  • 25:01 I URGE YOU NOT TO PUT IT OFF.
  • 25:03 IT'S AS SIMPLE AS SAYING "YES, YESHUA, I RECEIVE YOU."
  • 25:06 "I BELIEVE IN YOU."
  • 25:07 "I KNOW I WANT TO BE WITH YOU IN ETERNAL LIFE."
  • 25:10 AND YOU WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.
  • 25:12 IT'S VERY SIMPLE.
  • 25:14 THAT'S THE QUESTION I ASK, "ARE YOU REALLY THE MESSIAH OF THE JEWS?"
  • 25:16 THEN YEARS AGO WHEN HE ANSWERED ME AND HE SAID, "YES, I AM."
  • 25:20 AND EVERY WORD ABOUT HIM IS TRUE.
  • 25:22 HE WAS BORN A JEW.
  • 25:24 HE DIED A JEW.
  • 25:25 HE'S RETURNING AS THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.
  • 25:27 SO TODAY IF YOU'RE HEARING THIS MESSAGE,
  • 25:29 LISTEN TO WHAT BILL SALUS SAID.
  • 25:31 LISTEN TO WHAT KATHERINE IS SAYING AS WELL.
  • 25:33 TODAY IS THE DAY TO SAY, "YES, LORD.I AM A SINNER. I NEED YOUR MERCY."
  • 25:37 "I NEED YOUR GRACE. I WANT TO BE CLOSE WITH YOU NOW AND IN ETERNITY."
  • 25:42 WELL, WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT'S BEEN TO HEAR FROM BILL SALUS, BILL KOENIG, AND JACK KINSELLA.
  • 25:47 YOU KNOW SHORTLY AFTER WE DID THESE INTERVIEWS JACK KINSELLA WENT HOME TO BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 25:52 HE WAS A GREAT MAN OF GOD AND HE HAD A GREAT IMPACT ON THE ENTIRE FAITH COMMUNITY
  • 25:58 AND ON THOSE WHO DID NOT YET KNOW THE LORD
  • 26:01 BECAUSE HE HAD SUCH A GRACIOUS AND FIRM WAY OF TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO JESUS IS.
  • 26:06 THAT'S WHAT WE TRY TO DO HERE AS WELL.
  • 26:08 ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES,
  • 26:10 WE'RE SO BLESSED TO BE PART OF THIS
  • 26:12 BECAUSE THE MESSAGE THAT IS GOING FORTH FROM HERE IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 26:16 WE THANK YOU IF YOU'RE SUPPORTING US,
  • 26:18 IF YOU'RE GIVING US GIFTS OF FUNDS EACH WEEK.
  • 26:20 WE JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THAT.
  • 26:22 NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL.
  • 26:23 NO GIFT IS TOO LARGE.
  • 26:25 WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO INCREASE WHAT WE'RE DOING AS WE SEE THE DAY OF THE LORD APPROACHING.
  • 26:29 THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 26:31 WE DON'T WANT TO DIMINISH AT ALL.
  • 26:32 WE WANT TO JUST REACH OUT MORE.
  • 26:34 WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO BRING YOU THESE QUALITY PROGRAMS FROM ISRAEL AND FROM AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 26:37 WE CAN ONLY DO THAT WITH YOU PARTNERSHIP.
  • 26:40 THERE'S NO LARGE ORGANIZATION BEHIND US.
  • 26:42 IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU AND US TOGETHER.
  • 26:44 SO GOD BLESS YOU AS WE CONTINUE THIS WORK TOGETHER.
  • 26:48 BEFORE WE GO, IT'S ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO US TO REMIND YOU, JUST AS THE SCRIPTURES SAY,
  • 26:55 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM...
  • 26:57 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
