Caption transcript for “2013 — A Look Back”

  • 00:16 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED,
  • 00:23 FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK
  • 00:27 FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:43 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 00:44 WE'RE HERE ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:46 THE WIND IS BLOWING JUST AS THE RUACH HAKODESH,
  • 00:48 THE HOLY SPIRIT, IS BLOWING THROUGH THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 00:51 STIRRING THINGS UP AND BRINGING PEOPLE TO YESHUA.
  • 00:54 ABSOLUTELY, AND YOU KNOW THIS IS THE TIME OF PROMISE;
  • 00:57 THIS IS THE TIME OF FULFILLMENT.
  • 00:59 GOD IS NOT ONLY BLOWING
  • 01:00 BUT HE'S FULFILLING ALL THAT HE SAID THAT HE WOULD DO.
  • 01:04 HE IS CAUSING HIS PEOPLE TO RETURN
  • 01:05 AND HE IS SMILING UPON THEM.
  • 01:07 AND WE ARE JUST SO THANKFUL
  • 01:10 THAT WE GET TO BRING THESE PROGRAMS TO YOU FROM THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 01:13 WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU SOME CLIPS FROM ISAAC AND JACOB, THE SONS OF PROMISE.
  • 01:17 YEAH, YOU KNOW THE SONS OF PROMISE WAS FILMED RIGHT HERE IN THE HEARTLAND
  • 01:21 ON THE WAY OF THE PATRIARCHS WHERE IT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE.
  • 01:23 IT'S CONTESTED LAND.
  • 01:25 EVERYONE SAYS THAT THEY OWN IT BUT WE KNOW IT BELONGS TO THE LORD
  • 01:28 AND HE GIVES IT TO WHOMEVER HE WILL
  • 01:30 SO LET'S GO NOW TO SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM SONS OF PROMISE.
  • 02:00 AND THE LORD APPEARED UNTO ISAAC AND SAID,
  • 02:04 "DWELL IN THIS LAND AND I WILL BE WITH YOU AND BLESS YOU."
  • 02:09 "FOR TO YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS I GIVE ALL THESE LANDS"
  • 02:14 "AND I WILL PERFORM THE OATH WHICH I SWORE TO YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM"
  • 02:18 "AND I WILL MAKE YOUR DESCENDANTS MULTIPLY AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN"
  • 02:24 "AND IN YOUR SEED ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED."
  • 02:39 ABRAHAM SENDS HIS SERVANT OUT TO FIND ISAAC A BRIDE
  • 02:44 AND IT IS GOD'S PLAN THAT WE PRAY
  • 02:47 AND WE'LL SEE IN THIS SERVANT HOW FAST GOD ANSWERS HIS PRAYER.
  • 02:51 BEFORE HE EVEN BEGINS FINISHING PRAYING HE SEES REBEKAH COMING.
  • 02:55 AND REBEKAH IS WILLING AND SHE SAYS YES RIGHT AWAY.
  • 02:59 IT'S SUCH A PICTURE FOR US OF HOW TO BE A SERVANT,
  • 03:02 OF HOW TO BE WILLING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE.
  • 03:05 HE COMES WITH TEN CAMELS, TEN SHEKELS AND SO MANY OTHER GIFTS TO GIVE TO HER
  • 03:10 BUT HE IS LOOKING TO SEE HER HEART IF IT'S A SERVANT'S HEART,
  • 03:13 IT IT'S THE RIGHT ONE FOR ISAAC
  • 03:15 AND SHE PASSES THE TEST BY BEING A SERVANT.
  • 03:18 IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE FOR US.
  • 03:20 IT REALLY IS, AND REALLY HE COMES WITH THE BRIDE PRICE
  • 03:23 AND REBEKAH SAYS YES...
  • 03:25 THE BIBLE SAYS IN ISAIAH 60, VERSE 12
  • 03:28 "THE NATION THAT SHALL NOT SERVE ISRAEL SHALL PERISH".
  • 03:32 AND MORDECAI SAID TO ESTHER, IF YOU KEEP QUIET...
  • 03:36 NOW I SPEAK TO EVERY CHRISTIAN WHETHER THEY'RE JEWISH BELIEVERS OR GENTILE BELIEVERS IN AMERICA.
  • 03:42 IF YOU KEEP SILENT NOW GOD'S PLAN WITH ISRAEL WILL GO ON
  • 03:48 BUT YOU AND YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR CHURCH
  • 03:51 WILL FACE OR HAVE TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES.
  • 03:56 GIVE HER RESPITE LORD,
  • 03:57 GIVE HER RESPITE...
  • 03:59 YOU HAVE USED AMERICA TO FREE EUROPE.
  • 04:02 YOU HAVE USED AMERICA FOR 80 PER CENT OF ALL EVANGELISM.
  • 04:06 LOREN CUNNINGHAM IS AN AMERICAN...
  • 04:09 GEORGE VERWER IS OF "OPERATION MOBILISATION" IS AN AMERICAN...
  • 04:13 BILLY GRAHAM IS AN AMERICAN.
  • 04:16 I THANK GOD AS A EUROPEAN.
  • 04:18 I'M NOT CRITICAL OF THE MEN
  • 04:20 BUT I'M WOUNDED IN MY HEART TO SEE HOW AMERICA IS THROWING AWAY WHAT'S MEANT TO BE.
  • 04:28 WHEN AMERICA STOOD BESIDE ISRAEL GOD USED AMERICA.
  • 04:36 THE MISSION TO HARAN HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL.
  • 04:39 ABRAHAM'S SERVANT HAD FOUND A BEAUTIFUL WIFE FOR ISAAC NAMED REBEKAH.
  • 04:44 MORE IMPORTANTLY, THEY WERE LEAVING WITH THE BLESSING OF REBEKAH'S FAMILY.
  • 04:49 "OUR SISTER" THEY SAID, "MAY YOU BECOME THE MOTHER OF THOUSANDS OF TEN THOUSANDS"
  • 04:56 "AND MAY YOUR DESCENDANTS POSSESS THE GATES OF THEIR ENEMIES."
  • 05:05 IT'S INCREDIBLE TO BE STANDING HERE IN MODERN TEL AVIV
  • 05:08 AND SEEING THIS AMAZING ARCHITECTURE BEHIND US
  • 05:11 AND KNOW THAT WE'RE AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF TECHNOLOGY,
  • 05:14 MEDICINE AND ARCHITECTURE, EVERYTHING MODERN,
  • 05:17 AND YET THIS STORY BEGINS WAY BACK IN THE TIME OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 05:23 TELL OUR VIEWERS SOMETHING ABOUT THE EVERYDAY PRODUCTS
  • 05:26 THAT WE USE THAT WERE INVENTED HERE.
  • 05:28 SURE, IN FACT, ONE OF THE BIG PARTNERSHIPS IS ACTUALLY...
  • 05:32 WE TALK ABOUT START-UP NATION...
  • 05:34 BUT IT'S VERY BIG COMPANIES LIKE INTEL, MICROSOFT, GOOGLE; APPLE
  • 05:38 IT LOOKS LIKE WILL BE OPENING THEIR FIRST R&D CENTER OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 05:43 HERE IN ISRAEL.
  • 05:45 INTEL...MOST OF THE CHIPS THAT YOU USE IN YOUR COMPUTERS LIKE THE PENTIUM, THE CENTRINO
  • 05:50 WERE DESIGNED IN OR BUILT IN ISRAEL;
  • 05:54 SO THERE'S A LOT OF ISRAELI TECHNOLOGY IN YOUR CELL PHONE, IN YOUR COMPUTER,
  • 05:58 IN THE INTERNET AND THE THINGS THAT RUN THE INTERNET,
  • 06:01 ALL KINDS OF THINGS THAT PEOPLE USE ON A DAILY BASIS;
  • 06:04 MEDICAL DEVICES AND SO ON.
  • 06:06 BUT A LOT OF THOSE INVENTIONS HAVE BEEN ESSENTIALLY SCALED UP BY BIG AMERICAN COMPANIES.
  • 06:12 SO THAT'S BEEN A REALLY BEAUTIFUL PARTNERSHIP FOR THESE BIG AMERICAN COMPANIES,
  • 06:18 IT'S BEEN VERY IMPORTANT FOR THEM AND FOR ISRAEL.
  • 06:23 ISAAC'S FATHER ABRAHAM LIVED A LONG FULL LIFE AND DIED AT THE AGE OF 175.
  • 06:29 AND ABRAHAM'S SONS ISAAC AND ISHMAEL BURIED THEIR FATHER IN THE CAVE OF MACHPELAH
  • 06:36 IN THE FIELD THAT ABRAHAM HAD PURCHASED FROM THE HITTITES.
  • 06:41 IT WAS HERE THAT SARAH HAD ALSO BEEN BURIED.
  • 06:54 YEARS AGO GOD HAD SPOKEN TO ABRAHAM ABOUT HIS TWO SONS.
  • 06:59 "AS FOR ISHMAEL, I HAVE BLESSED HIM AND WILL MAKE HIM FRUITFUL"
  • 07:04 "AND WILL MULTIPLY HIM EXCEEDINGLY."
  • 07:07 "TWELVE PRINCES SHALL HE BEGET"
  • 07:09 "AND I WILL MAKE HIM A GREAT NATION."
  • 07:12 "BUT MY COVENANT WILL I ESTABLISH WITH ISAAC;"
  • 07:15 "AN EVERLASTING COVENANT"
  • 07:17 "AND WITH HIS SEED AFTER HIM."
  • 07:32 WE'RE COMING TO A PIVOTAL PART OF THE STORY
  • 07:34 BECAUSE THE SONS OF PROMISE REALLY NEED TO MAKE A DISTINCTION
  • 07:38 BETWEEN THE LINE OF ISHMAEL AND THE LINE OF ISAAC.
  • 07:41 THIS IS SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE ISHMAEL IS BLESSED
  • 07:44 BUT THE COVENANT GOD MAKES WITH ISAAC.
  • 07:46 IN FACT, EVEN BACK IN GENESIS 17 HE SAYS
  • 07:49 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 07:53 MY COVENANT I WILL MAKE WITH ISAAC.
  • 08:03 ISAAC BECAME PROSPEROUS IN THE LAND OF CANAAN
  • 08:06 BUT THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND BECAME JEALOUS
  • 08:08 AND DESTROYED THE WELLS THAT ISAAC'S FATHER HAD DUG MANY YEARS BEFORE.
  • 08:13 ISAAC DUG NEW WELLS BUT THE PHILISTINES CLAIMED THE WATER WAS THEIRS.
  • 08:18 UNDETERRED, ISAAC AND HIS MEN MOVED ON AND DUG YET ANOTHER WELL.
  • 09:13 THIS IS A STORY ABOUT WELLS.
  • 09:15 WE'RE COMING TO THAT PLACE WHERE THE WELLS ARE COMING INTO THE FOREFRONT OF THIS STORY.
  • 09:20 I'M SITTING IN A FIELD OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 09:22 THERE IS DRIP IRRIGATION HERE, A MODERN ISRAELI INVENTION.
  • 09:25 IN FACT, WHEN YOU GO IN YOUR BACKYARD AND YOU WATER YOUR LAWN OR YOUR PLANTS, YOUR SHRUBS,
  • 09:30 YOU CAN THANK THE JEWISH PEOPLE;
  • 09:32 YOU CAN THANK ISRAEL BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE DRIP IRRIGATION WAS INVENTED.
  • 09:36 SO TELL ME, WHY DID YOU JOIN THE IDF?
  • 09:38 WELL FOR ME I FEEL LIKE I WAS GROWN UP WITH TWO COUNTRIES IN MY BACKGROUND.
  • 09:43 MY FIRST COUNTRY WAS WHERE I GREW UP AND IS AMERICA.
  • 09:46 AND THE SECOND COUNTRY WAS MY HERITAGE
  • 09:48 AND WHERE ALL MY PEOPLE ARE COME FROM, ALL THE JEWS, WHICH IS ISRAEL.
  • 09:51 AND I REALLY WANTED TO HELP OUT MY SECOND COUNTRY WHICH IS ISRAEL
  • 09:56 AND I THOUGHT ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO DO THAT
  • 09:58 IS TO HELP PROTECT THEIR CITIZENS AND TO PROTECT,
  • 10:00 TO HELP THE COUNTRY THAT WE WERE GIVEN TO BY GOD.
  • 10:03 SO ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO DO THAT IS BY SERVING IN THE IDF
  • 10:06 AND MAKING SURE THAT ALL THE SOLDIERS ARE PROTECTED
  • 10:08 AND IF ANYONE GETS HURT YOU CAN HELP THEM AS WELL.
  • 10:10 WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE FIDF AND PERSONALLY
  • 10:13 HOW HAS THAT ORGANIZATION HELPED YOU AND WHAT DO YOU SEE FOR IT AS A WHOLE?
  • 10:17 THE FIDF HAS HELPED ME IN NUMEROUS WAYS.
  • 10:22 FOR EXAMPLE, THIS PAST SHABBAT I REALLY DIDN'T HAVE A SHIRT TO WEAR SO I WENT TO TIBERIUS,
  • 10:33 I WENT TO A STORE THERE
  • 10:35 AND WITH A VOUCHER THAT THEY GAVE ME
  • 10:37 I WAS ABLE TO BUY MYSELF A SHIRT FOR THE SABBATH.
  • 10:39 SO THAT'S ONE OF THE LITTLE THINGS.
  • 10:42 HI SAPPHIRE, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TODAY.
  • 10:44 CAN YOU TELL OUR VIEWERS WHAT CAUSED YOU TO WANT TO JOIN THE IDF?
  • 10:48 WELL I AM ORIGINALLY FROM THAILAND.
  • 10:52 I GREW UP THERE FOR 19 YEARS
  • 10:55 AND I WENT TO A BRITISH INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
  • 10:58 SO ALL MY FRIENDS WERE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
  • 11:01 I HONESTLY DIDN'T KNOW I WAS GOING TO JOIN THE ARMY
  • 11:06 UNTIL THE LAST YEAR WHERE WE HAD TO PICK WHERE WE WANTED TO STUDY
  • 11:11 AND WHAT SUBJECT AND WHERE IN THE WORLD.
  • 11:13 MY LAST YEAR I WENT THROUGH A BIT OF RACISM IN MY SCHOOL.
  • 11:20 THAT JUST MADE ME KIND OF STRONGER AND MADE ME SUPPORT MY COUNTRY MORE
  • 11:25 AND I JUST DECIDED, THOUGHT IT WAS BEST FOR ME TO MAKE AN ALIYAH AND JOIN THE ARMY.
  • 11:30 THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING
  • 11:32 AND I KNOW OUR VIEWERS AT HOME LOVE TO PRAY FOR THE IDF
  • 11:36 AND I KNOW THAT THERE'S ALSO AN ORGANIZATION HERE IN ISRAEL CALLED "FRIENDS OF THE IDF".
  • 11:41 HOW HAVE THEY HELPED YOU IN YOUR STATE HERE, BEING FROM THAILAND?
  • 11:45 WELL THEY HELPED ME VISIT MY FAMILY.
  • 11:49 THEY OFFERED ME A TICKET TO THAILAND
  • 11:53 LIKE A FREE TICKET TO GO VISIT MY FAMILY AND SPEND PASSOVER WITH THEM.
  • 11:56 THAT'S HUGE!
  • 11:58 YEAH, IT'S AMAZING.
  • 12:00 I GOT TO SPEND TWO WEEKS WITH MY FAMILY AND WITH MY DAD.
  • 12:03 PASSOVER DINNER WAS AMAZING.
  • 12:06 BEING A LONE SOLDIER IS VERY DIFFICULT
  • 12:09 ESPECIALLY SINCE WE DON'T HAVE PARENTS,
  • 12:11 IT'S HARD TO HAVE THE SUPPORT OR TO GET PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE GOING THROUGH
  • 12:16 AND "FRIENDS OF THE IDF" HAS JUST OPENED UP THAT WORLD OF SUPPORT AND FRIENDS.
  • 12:22 AND THEY SUPPORT YOU LIKE OTHERS HAVE SAID
  • 12:25 AND HAVING A TRIP BACK HOME WHICH MEANS EVERYTHING
  • 12:28 ESPECIALLY, IF LIKE YOU'RE GOING THROUGH FINANCIAL HARD TIMES.
  • 12:32 AND I'M ALSO A PART OF "GARIN TZABAR"
  • 12:35 WHICH WORKS WITH "FRIENDS OF THE IDF"
  • 12:37 AND IT JUST GAVE ME FAMILY AND MY FRIENDS
  • 12:41 AND THEY HELPED ME THROUGH EVERY STEP OF THE ARMY AND IT'S AMAZING!
  • 12:45 I'M VERY GLAD I DECIDED TO JOIN THE ARMY.
  • 12:48 IT MADE ME STRONGER, A BETTER PERSON
  • 12:52 AND IT JUST MADE ME MORE INDEPENDENT AND MATURE
  • 12:57 AND I REALLY LOVE PROTECTING PEOPLE IN MY COUNTRY OR HELPING OUT
  • 13:01 BECAUSE I THINK IT'S WHAT ISRAEL NEEDS.
  • 13:05 AND ISRAEL IS GOING THROUGH A LOT AROUND THE WORLD,
  • 13:08 LIKE A LOT OF POLITICAL ISSUES AROUND THE WORLD
  • 13:11 AND I JUST THINK...I LOVE SUPPORTING MY COUNTRY AND I THINK IT'S THE BEST.

  • 15:00 AND IT'S OUR JOY TO BRING YOU THE ANCIENT ROCKS AND THE LIVING STONES;
  • 15:04 THE STORY THAT WAS AND THE STORY THAT IS AND IS TO COME.
  • 15:07 YOU KNOW EVERY TIME YOU LOOK AT ISRAEL
  • 15:09 YOU HAVE TO SEE IT THROUGH THE EYES OF SCRIPTURE
  • 15:11 AND IT'S OUR JOY TO BRING YOU THE LIVING STONES,
  • 15:13 THE PEOPLE THAT ARE STANDING WITH ISRAEL TODAY,
  • 15:16 THE IDF SOLDIERS.
  • 15:17 YOU KNOW WE HAVE SUCH A POIGNANT TIME WITH THE FRIENDS OF THE IDF
  • 15:21 AND SOME MEMBERS OF THE LONE SOLDIER PROGRAM.
  • 15:23 AS WE WERE FILMING THE "SONS OF PROMISE"
  • 15:25 WE REALLY WANTED TO BRING YOU A SENSE OF THE BLESSING
  • 15:27 THAT COMES THROUGH THE JEWISH PEOPLE BOTH IN ANCIENT TIMES AND TODAY,
  • 15:31 SO LET'S GO AGAIN TO SOME HIGHLIGHTS FROM "SONS OF PROMISE".
  • 15:39 SOON AFTER ISAAC HAD GIVEN HIS BLESSING TO JACOB,
  • 15:43 ESAU APPROACHED HIS FATHER'S BEDSIDE WITH THE FOOD HE HAD PREPARED.
  • 15:47 WHEN ISAAC FOUND THAT HE HAD BEEN DECEIVED BY JACOB HE WAS VERY ANGRY.
  • 16:35 THAT THIS CONFLICT WILL BE GOING ON THROUGHOUT THE GENERATIONS
  • 16:38 AND WE'VE SEEN THAT IN THE BIBLICAL HISTORY AND WE SEE IT EVEN TODAY.
  • 16:43 THERE'S A CONFLICT BETWEEN THE SONS OF ESAU AND THE SONS OF JACOB.
  • 16:47 AND SATAN COMES AS THE ACCUSER
  • 16:50 AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS TO ESAU IS THAT HE NURTURES THAT GRUDGE
  • 16:53 AND HE MISSES THE "HASSED", THE "GRACE" OF GOD, THE LOVING KINDNESS OF GOD
  • 16:58 AND IT REALLY FOR US IS A WARNING ABOUT HOW WE VIEW LIFE.
  • 17:03 DO WE FILTER LIFE THROUGH PAST PAIN
  • 17:05 OR DO WE LOOK AT IT THROUGH PRESENT PROPHECY?
  • 17:09 DO WE ALLOW GOD'S WORD TO AWAKEN US, TO QUICKEN US
  • 17:12 AND MAKE US ALIVE TO HIS PROMISES, TO HIS GOODNESS, TO HIS "HASSED"
  • 17:16 OR DO WE MAKE CIRCUMSTANCES AND SUFFERING COLOR THE WAY WE SEE LIFE.
  • 17:21 AND REALLY THAT'S WHAT WE'RE SEEING PLAYING OUT POLITICALLY TODAY.
  • 17:24 WE CAN'T LOOK AT LIFE THROUGH THE SUFFERING OF THE DAY.
  • 17:27 WE HAVE TO REFER BACK TO THE WORD BECAUSE IT'S THE ONLY SURE WAY TO UNDERSTAND
  • 17:32 WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE WORLD.
  • 17:40 AND JACOB DREAMED THERE WAS A LADDER THAT REACHED UP INTO HEAVEN.
  • 17:47 HE SAW ANGELS OF GOD ASCENDING AND DESCENDING.
  • 17:51 AND THE LORD SAID, "I AM THE LORD THE GOD OF YOUR GRANDFATHER ABRAHAM."
  • 17:58 "I AM THE GOD OF ISAAC."
  • 18:00 "I WILL GIVE YOU THE LAND THAT YOU ARE LYING UPON."
  • 18:03 "I WILL GIVE THIS LAND TO YOU AND TO YOUR SEED"
  • 18:07 "AND YOUR SEED WILL BE LIKE THE DUST OF THE EARTH"
  • 18:10 "AND YOU SHALL EXPAND TO WEST AND EAST; TO THE NORTH AND TO THE SOUTH."
  • 18:15 "ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BLESSED BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOUR DESCENDANTS."
  • 18:22 "I AM WITH YOU AND WILL PROTECT YOU WHEREVER YOU GO AND WILL BRING YOU BACK TO THIS LAND."
  • 18:30 "I WILL NOT LEAVE YOU UNTIL I HAVE DONE WHAT I HAVE PROMISED."
  • 18:38 OVER MY SHOULDER YOU SEE A MODERN INTERPRETATION OF THE LADDER FROM HEAVEN...
  • 18:43 THERE ARE ALWAYS THESE TURN AROUNDS IN THE BIBLE.
  • 18:46 THERE'S ALWAYS A TIME WHEN THERE'S DIFFICULTY AND HARDSHIP
  • 18:49 AND YOU THINK THAT THE GOOD GUYS ARE GOING TO LOSE OUT
  • 18:52 AND THERE MAY BE A LONG WAIT BEFORE GOD'S JUSTICE COMES
  • 18:56 BUT THERE ALWAYS IS A TIME WHEN GOD'S JUSTICE COMES AROUND.
  • 19:00 THINK ABOUT PHARAOH OPPRESSING THE HEBREW PEOPLE FOR 400 YEARS
  • 19:04 AND THEY CRIED OUT AND IT SEEMS THAT GOD WAS DEAF
  • 19:07 BUT WHEN HIS TIME CAME DELIVERANCE CAME.
  • 19:10 AND WHEN HAMAN CAME TO DESTROY THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN PERSIA AND GOD TURNED IT AROUND
  • 19:15 AND MORDECAI WAS VICTORIOUS AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE SPARED ONCE AGAIN.
  • 19:20 AND EVEN IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WHEN SAUL OF TARSUS CONSENTED TO STEPHEN'S STONING.
  • 19:25 AND GOD...SOMETIME LATER PAUL (SAUL) HIMSELF WAS STONED,
  • 19:30 NOT UNTO DEATH BECAUSE GOD HAD A PURPOSE FOR PAUL AND A PURPOSE TO RELEASE THROUGH HIS LIFE.
  • 19:35 IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT DESTINY.
  • 19:36 IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT YOUR DESTINY AND MINE.
  • 19:39 YOU KNOW JACOB IS ABOUT TO BE DECEIVED BY LABAN.
  • 19:42 AND ISN'T IT AMAZING THAT THE SAME DECEPTION THAT HE USED ON ISAAC WHEN ISAAC'S EYES WERE DIM
  • 19:48 ARE ABOUT TO COME BACK ON HIM AS HE IS GOING TO BE FULL OF WINE AND IN THE DARKNESS
  • 19:54 AND HE'S GOING TO BE DECEIVED ABOUT WHICH BRIDE HE IS WITH.
  • 19:57 AND SO WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND IN THE BIBLE
  • 20:00 BUT IT'S ALWAYS COMING BACK TO THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD AND THE PURPOSES OF GOD.
  • 20:05 LABAN IS GOING TO CHANGE HIS WAGES TEN TIMES...
  • 20:09 TEN THE NUMBER OF TESTING.
  • 20:10 BUT GOD IS GOING TO HAVE HIS WAY
  • 20:12 AND JACOB IS GOING TO BE THE FATHER OF THIS NATION.
  • 20:16 ABRAHAM, YITSHAK (ISAAC) AND YACOV (JACOB), A SON OF PROMISE LEADING TO THIS,
  • 20:21 THE SONS OF PROMISE ALIVE AND WELL AND BACK IN THEIR LAND.
  • 20:26 WELL HELLO FROM BEN YEHUDA STREET.
  • 20:28 I'M HERE WITH TODD BAKER,
  • 20:29 THE LEADER OF OUR "TO THE JEW FIRST" EFFORT.
  • 20:32 TODD, HOW ARE YOU TODAY?
  • 20:33 I'M DOING GREAT MARK.
  • 20:34 IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE IN YERUSHALAYIM,
  • 20:37 THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING,
  • 20:39 BRINGING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS BACK TO HIS PEOPLE,
  • 20:42 THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 20:44 WELL THIS TRIP MARKS 93 MISSIONARIES THAT OUR MINISTRY HAS SENT TO ISRAEL.
  • 20:50 AND TODD, SOME FOLKS BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE AMERICAN JEWS MAY SEEM STAND-OFFISH ABOUT HEARING ABOUT THEIR MESSIAH
  • 20:57 THAT WITNESSING TO JEWISH ISRAELIS MUST BE VERY TOUGH.
  • 21:02 WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THAT?
  • 21:03 WELL ON THE CONTRARY.
  • 21:05 EACH TIME WE COME OVER HERE AND CARRY OUT THESE OUTREACHES THREE TIMES A YEAR
  • 21:08 THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN PARTICULAR SEEM TO BE MORE AND MORE OPEN
  • 21:12 TO HEARING ABOUT YESHUA AND READING THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 21:16 AND LOOKING AT THE EVIDENCE FOR HIM BEING THE MESSIAH.
  • 21:19 AND I THINK PART OF THE REASON IS AS WE DRAW NEARER TO THE RETURN OF THE LORD TO ISRAEL
  • 21:24 THAT PARTIAL BLINDNESS THAT PAUL TALKS ABOUT IN ROMANS 11 IS LIFTING
  • 21:29 AND AS WE KNOW IT WILL COMPLETELY LIFT
  • 21:31 WHEN THEY SEE YESHUA, JESUS COMING TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 21:35 BUT THE FACT THAT WE'RE SEEING IT NOW
  • 21:37 IS A GOOD INDICATOR THAT HIS RETURN IS NEAR
  • 21:40 AND HE'S OPENING THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF HIS PEOPLE.
  • 21:44 YOU KNOW WE'RE STANDING ON A SPOT HERE
  • 21:47 WHERE EACH DAY A BLOOD MOBILE COMES AND RECEIVES DONATIONS OF BLOOD.
  • 21:52 AND THIS IS ONE OF TODD'S FAVORITE PLACES TO TALK ABOUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS
  • 21:55 WHICH HE SHED FOR JEW AND GENTILE ALIKE.
  • 21:59 YEAH...WE TRIED TO GIVE BLOOD THIS TIME BUT WE COULDN'T
  • 22:03 BECAUSE THE DAY'S CYCLE DIDN'T WORK OUT
  • 22:06 BUT WE DEFINITELY DO THAT WHEN WE CAN
  • 22:10 AND I WILL DO IT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE
  • 22:13 AND LIKE YOU SAID
  • 22:14 IT'S A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO WORK IN THE IMPORTANCE OF BLOOD IN THE BIBLE.
  • 22:18 LEVITICUS 17:11 SAYS WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD THERE IS NO REMISSION OF SINS
  • 22:23 AND THE LIFE OF THE FLESH IS IN THE BLOOD.
  • 22:26 AND BLOOD ATONEMENT... IN THE OLD COVENANT
  • 22:30 ITS ANIMAL SACRIFICES POINT TO THE ONCE FOR ALL PERFECT ATONING SACRIFICE OF YESHUA.
  • 22:35 AND THAT'S ONE OF THE MAIN COMPONENTS IN OUR WITNESS TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE OVER HERE
  • 22:41 BECAUSE THEY'RE VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE IMPORTANCE OF BLOOD
  • 22:44 AGAIN COMING FROM UNDERSTANDING AND READING THE TORAH.
  • 22:47 WELL LET'S SEGUE-WAY NOW TO TODD IN THE TRENCHES
  • 22:51 AS HE GIVES A B'RIT HADASHAH AND EXPLAINS ITS SIGNIFICANCE TO A JEWISH ISRAELI.
  • 22:58 I'M HERE WITH AVI CHAI, AN ISRAELI,
  • 23:01 AND WE'VE BEEN SHARING WITH HIM HA'BESORA YESHUA HA'MESHIACH,
  • 23:06 "THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JESUS CHRIST".
  • 23:09 AND AVI, YOU HAVE READ THE TANAKH,
  • 23:12 OR WHAT CHRISTIANS CALL THE OLD TESTAMENT, CORRECT?
  • 23:14 CORRECT
  • 23:15 HAVE YOU EVER READ THE B'RIT HADASHAH
  • 23:18 OR WHAT CHRISTIANS CALL "THE NEW TESTAMENT?
  • 23:20 NO, I NEVER READ IT.
  • 23:22 WELL PART OF OUR MINISTRY AS AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE AND GRATITUDE
  • 23:26 TO YOUR PEOPLE FOR GIVING US BOTH TESTAMENTS OF THE BIBLE
  • 23:30 IS TO GIVE YOU A COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE WITH THE TANAKH, OR THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 23:35 AND THE B'RIT HADASHAH, THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 23:39 AND THE MESSIAH CONNECTS BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER.
  • 23:43 IN THE TANAKH YOU HAVE PROPHESIES,
  • 23:45 VERY DETAILED PROPHESIES ABOUT THE MESSIAH.
  • 23:47 AND THEN WHEN YOU COMPARE IT WITH THE LIFE OF JESUS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT
  • 23:51 I THINK YOU'LL SEE THAT HE IS THE MESSIAH.
  • 23:54 ALRIGHT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 23:55 YOU'RE WELCOME.
  • 23:58 YOU'RE WELCOME AND JUST IN PARTING I LIKE TO SAY
  • 24:01 THAT WHEN I LOOK AT AN ISRAELI I KNOW THAT THREE THINGS ARE TRUE;
  • 24:05 ONE, THE GOD OF ISRAEL EXISTS;
  • 24:07 TWO, THE BIBLE IS TRUE;
  • 24:10 AND THREE GOD KEEPS HIS PROMISES,
  • 24:12 AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE PROOF OF THAT.
  • 24:16 AND THAT'S BASICALLY WHAT WE DO OVER HERE
  • 24:19 IS WE BRING JESUS BACK TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE, HIS PEOPLE;
  • 24:23 GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ABOUT WHY JESUS IS THE MESSIAH
  • 24:29 AND HISTORICAL PROOF GIVEN IN THE B'RIT HADASHAH, OR THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 24:34 REMEMBER IN JEREMIAH 31:31 GOD PROMISES THAT HE WILL MAKE A NEW COVENANT,
  • 24:39 A B'RIT HADASHAH WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.
  • 24:42 AND THANKS TO YOUR SUPPORT
  • 24:46 WE ARE ABLE TO BRING THE NEW COVENANT AS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE OLD COVENANT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
