Whether or not you have been to Israel, our Journey of Restoration series will bless and enlighten you. This program previews some of that TV series’ highlights. Outtakes from our Spring 2013 Tour will give you a front-row seat to poignant moments with our Messianic tour guides. My interview with Tommy Waller marks the prophetic time clock, as Jews and Christians work side by side to restore the Land’s fertility!

Caption transcript for “Looking Ahead into 2014”

  • 00:15 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED,
  • 00:22 FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK
  • 00:26 FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:42 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 00:43 I'M MYLES WEISS
  • 00:45 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS.
  • 00:46 AND WE ARE GRATEFUL TO BE HERE IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:48 BRINGING YOU SOME UPCOMING SHOWS FOR THE COMING YEAR.
  • 00:51 YOU KNOW WE ARE GRATEFUL TO BRING YOU THESE MESSAGES FROM THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:55 YEAH, WE TOOK OUR TOUR AND WE TOOK YOU WITH US ON THIS LAST YEAR
  • 00:59 AND WE WENT FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH
  • 01:02 FROM DAN TO BEERSHEVA
  • 01:04 AND YOU WILL JUST REJOICE TO HEAR WHAT OUR PILGRIMS HAD TO SAY.
  • 01:08 YEAH, WE KNOW THAT YOU CAN'T COME WITH US...
  • 01:10 MANY OF YOU CANNOT COME
  • 01:12 AND SO WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA TO BRING THE TOUR TO YOU
  • 01:15 SO YOU COULD SEE WHAT'S UPCOMING FOR THE MILLENNIUM
  • 01:17 BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT YESHUA IS RETURNING TO A JEWISH JERUSALEM
  • 01:21 WHERE HE IS GOING TO RULE AND REIGN FOR A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 01:24 WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS.
  • 01:26 WITHOUT YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS WE CANNOT DO THIS WORK.
  • 01:28 YOU KNOW SO MANY TIMES IN THE LIBERAL MEDIA ISRAEL'S MALIGNED
  • 01:33 AND I KNOW THAT IT'S YOU OUR VIEWERS
  • 01:35 THAT KNOW GOD'S VIEW AND GOD'S PLAN FOR ISRAEL
  • 01:39 AND IT'S OUR JOB TO BE WATCHMEN ON THE WALL AND TO STAND
  • 01:42 SO THANK YOU FOR ANY GIFTS SMALL OR LARGE.
  • 01:44 IT REALLY GOES A LONG WAY FOR US
  • 01:46 TO CONTINUE TO BRING YOU THESE ISRAEL NOW MESSAGES.
  • 01:49 SO COME WITH US NOW AS WE SHOW YOU SOME CLIPS
  • 01:52 FROM AN UPCOMING SERIES "THE JOURNEY OF RESTORATION"
  • 01:55 AND WE TAKE YOU THROUGH THE LAND OF ISRAEL WITH US.
  • 02:03 I LOVE ISRAEL, I LOVE THE PEOPLE...
  • 02:06 TOTALLY SO...IT'S INDESCRIBABLE.
  • 02:09 IT FEELS LIKE HOME... IT JUST FEELS LIKE HOME.
  • 02:12 WELCOME TO JERUSALEM... IT JUST TOOK MY BREATH AWAY.
  • 02:15 IT JUST SHOWS THE FINGER PRINT OF GOD EVERYWHERE.
  • 02:18 TO REALIZE HOW SPECIAL THIS CITY AND THE PEOPLE WERE TO THE LORD.
  • 02:22 IT'S GOD'S CHOSEN LAND AND JESUS WALKED ON IT.
  • 02:26 I THINK THERE'S A RESTORATION AS PASTOR MYLES TALKED ABOUT.
  • 02:30 HOW GOD IS REALLY GATHERING THE JEWS.
  • 02:35 THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST WE'VE BEEN GRAFTED-IN AND NOW THIS OUR CITY ALSO.
  • 02:54 SO ALL THE ARMIES WHO CAME AGAINST THE NATION OF ISRAEL
  • 03:00 BACK IN... ALL THROUGHOUT HISTORY.
  • 03:03 THEY ALWAYS CAME RIGHT THROUGH HERE, THROUGH THE VALLEY
  • 03:06 BECAUSE IT'S A MOUNTAIN PASS,
  • 03:08 SO AS WE SPEAK ABOUT THE FINAL WAR, THE FINAL BATTLE,
  • 03:11 THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BRING IN TO THE LAND MIGHTY ARMIES
  • 03:14 WOULD BE THROUGH THE VALLEY,
  • 03:15 TO FOLLOW FROM THE NORTHEAST THE JORDAN VALLEY FIRST
  • 03:19 AND THEN THE JEZREEL VALLEY ON YOUR WAY TO THE COASTAL PLAINS.
  • 03:22 AND INDEED FOR CENTURIES THE VALLEY YOU ARE FACING WAS A BATTLE ZONE
  • 03:27 AND GREAT, GREAT WARS, BATTLES TOOK PLACE RIGHT HERE
  • 03:31 AND AGAIN ONE MORE YET TO COME THE FINAL WAR, THE FINAL BATTLE.
  • 03:35 AS YOU LOOK ACROSS THE VALLEY
  • 03:37 YOU WILL SEE A BIG CITY UP THERE ON THE MOUNTAINS
  • 03:40 AND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN YOU'RE LOOKING AT NAZARETH, THE TOWN OF NAZARETH,
  • 03:45 THE BIG CITY ON TOP OF THE HILLS.
  • 03:48 WHEN CHRIST WAS BORN; WHEN YESHUA WAS BORN IN THIS COUNTRY HE WAS BORN IN BETHLEHEM
  • 03:54 BUT HE WAS BROUGHT UP IN NAZARETH THE TOWN UP THERE WHICH WAS MUCH SMALLER.
  • 03:59 TODAY IT'S A VERY LARGE CITY
  • 04:01 BUT BACK THEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A SMALL VILLAGE WITH MAYBE 20 FAMILIES.
  • 04:05 BUT YESHUA HAD BEEN BROUGHT-UP, UP THERE ON THE OTHER SIDE ON THE MOUNTAINS.
  • 04:11 AND YOU CAN FIND THIS VERY SYMBOLIC, VERY POWERFUL THOUGHT.
  • 04:15 YOU KNOW THIS SIDE OF THE VALLEY IN A WAY REPRESENTS EVIL.
  • 04:18 WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE WORSHIP OF BAAL ON THE HIGH PLACES, MOUNT CARMEL OR HERE AT MEGIDDO
  • 04:27 BUT AS YOU LOOK JUST THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION
  • 04:31 YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE PLACE WHERE OUR SAVIOR HAD BEEN BROUGHT-UP.
  • 04:35 AND ONE DAY THEY ARE GOING TO MEET...GOOD AND EVIL RIGHT HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE VALLEY.
  • 04:44 GOD HAS BROUGHT YOU TO ISRAEL TO JUST NOT GO ON A TOUR AND SEE THE SITES, GET SOME EXPOSURE,
  • 04:51 BUT TO REALLY GET THE HEART OF GOD FOR WHAT HE'S DOING IN THIS LAND RIGHT NOW.
  • 04:56 AND IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN JUST TEACH.
  • 05:00 YOU CAN TEACH IT
  • 05:02 BUT TO SEE IT, TO FEEL IT,
  • 05:03 TO SMELL IT, TO HOLD IT,
  • 05:05 TO CONNECT WITH US AS THE BODY.
  • 05:09 I BELIEVE THE LORD HAS CHOSEN MYLES AND KATHARINE
  • 05:13 TO REALLY MAKE THAT BRIDGE HAPPEN IN A VERY DEEP WAY
  • 05:17 BECAUSE YOUR LIVES ARE SO IMPACTED BY THE UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD'S GIVEN
  • 05:23 AND SO THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE GONE OUT IN THE SENSE TO BE AMBASSADORS.
  • 05:27 IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT ISRAEL.
  • 05:29 IT IS ABOUT UNDERSTANDING WHO ISRAEL IS IN GOD'S HEART AND IN GOD'S PLAN.
  • 05:35 BUT IT'S UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS A BODY RIGHT NOW.
  • 05:39 WE HAD 500 VOLUNTEERS FROM 40 NATIONS COME AND BUILD THIS
  • 05:44 AND THIS WAS THE FIRST FREE-STANDING MESSIANIC CONGREGATION BUILT PROBABLY IN 2000 YEARS.
  • 05:51 AND SO FOR THAT THE SIGNIFICANCE OF IT
  • 05:54 IS THAT GOD CHOSE THE VERY, VERY TOP OF MOUNT CARMEL.
  • 05:58 I GOT OFF AT THE AIRPORT AND THEY SAID "WELCOME HOME".
  • 06:02 I'M GOING, OH MY GOSH, I NEVER LOOKED AT IT LIKE THAT...
  • 06:05 BUT I'M HOME.
  • 06:12 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:19 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:26 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:57 AMEN >>AMEN
  • 07:01 (Voice of Katharine Weiss) AND SO WE'RE OFF TO PLANT A FOREST.
  • 07:09 IT STARTS WITH A SAPLING,
  • 07:10 A SPADE AND SOME ELBOW GREASE.
  • 07:12 AND IT'S SO REWARDING TO KNOW WE'RE INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF THE PROMISED LAND.
  • 07:26 THEN BACK ON THE BUS AS OUR JOURNEY CONTINUES.
  • 07:30 WE ARE HEADING TO TEL DAN
  • 07:34 THE MOST NORTHERN CITY OF THE KINGDOM,
  • 07:36 THE KINGDOM OF ISRAEL.
  • 07:38 (Voice of Katharine Weiss) WE'RRE APPROACHING THE FOOTHILLS OF MOUNT HERMON.
  • 07:42 IT'S LUSH, GREEN WITH FLOWING STREAMS AND LITTLE WATER FALLS.
  • 07:46 WE WALKED ALONG THE WINDING SCENIC PATH LEADING TO TEL DAN
  • 07:51 WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE HEAVY WALLS
  • 07:53 THAT DATE BACK TO THE TIME OF JEROBOAM
  • 07:55 WHO WAS THE KING OF THE NORTHERN ISRAEL KINGDOM IN THE 10TH CENTURY B.C.
  • 08:06 THIS IS KNOWN AS "Q4".
  • 08:09 "Q" STANDS FOR QUMRAN;
  • 08:10 "4"...CAVE NUMBER 4
  • 08:12 AND REMEMBER THAT SO FAR THE SCROLLS WERE DISCOVERED IN 11 CAVES.
  • 08:17 MOST OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS WERE DISCOVERED HERE IN THIS CAVE ALONE IN Q4.
  • 08:22 SO OUT OF THE 900 SCROLLS 530 OF THEM WERE FOUND HERE
  • 08:31 BUT NOT IN VERY GOOD CONDITION IN Q4.
  • 08:36 THEY DISCOVERED TINY FRAGMENTS, 14,000 FRAGMENTS.
  • 08:40 THEY KEPT LOOKING
  • 08:43 LATER ON THEY DISCOVERED 1,000 MORE.
  • 08:46 SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT 15,000 FRAGMENTS OF SCROLLS
  • 08:50 THAT WHEN THEY PUT THEM TOGETHER WE WILL GET 530 OUT OF THE 900.
  • 08:56 YOU KNOW THE FIRST MAN TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT WAS WAS PROFESSOR SUKENIK
  • 09:02 BECAUSE HE KNEW THE HISTORY WELL
  • 09:05 AND IMMEDIATELY AS HE WAS LOOKING AT THE SCROLLS AND SAW THE HEBREW ALPHABET
  • 09:10 SO HE IMMEDIATELY MADE THE RIGHT CONNECTION.
  • 09:12 HE BEGAN TO SHIVER...
  • 09:14 HE BEGAN TO SHIVER.
  • 09:16 HE WAS THE FIRST MAN TO REALIZE WHAT IT WAS, WHAT HE WAS HOLDING.
  • 09:19 AND THAT'S AN AMAZING STORY
  • 09:23 BECAUSE AT THE EXACT DATE THAT THIS MAN, PROFESSOR SUKENIK WAS LOOKING AT IT,
  • 09:29 IT WAS AN HISTORICAL DAY FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 09:32 YOU SHOULD LISTEN CAREFULLY.
  • 09:36 THIS WAS THE NOVEMBER 29TH 1947.
  • 09:42 I'LL REPEAT IT AGAIN...
  • 09:43 NOVEMBER 29TH 1947.
  • 09:46 ON THE SAME DAY, THE VERY DAY,
  • 09:48 THE UNITED NATIONS TOOK THE DECISION TO ESTABLISH THE STATE OF ISRAEL...
  • 09:53 KNOWN AS THE PARTITION PLAN.
  • 09:57 REMEMBER I TOLD YOU ABOUT THAT?
  • 09:59 1947 THE UN TOOK THE DECISION 2 YEARS AFTER THE WAR, AFTER THE JEWISH HOLOCAUST,
  • 10:07 THE UN TOOK THE DECISION TO ESTABLISH THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 10:10 SO IT WAS NOT A COINCIDENCE.
  • 10:14 NO DOUBT IT WAS GOD'S TIMING...GOD'S TIMING.
  • 10:19 ISRAEL IS DEFINITELY A CONTRAST YOU KNOW.
  • 10:21 WE HAD TIBERIUS AND GREEN, PLUSH LANDS
  • 10:23 AND QUMRAN IT JUST TURNS INSTANT DESERT
  • 10:26 AND YET RIGHT OUTSIDE OF QUMRAN THEY HAVE HUGE DATE TREE PALMS THAT THEY'RE GROWING.
  • 10:32 AND SO YOU KNOW IT SPEAKS OF JUST THE POWER OF GOD TO HIDE HIS WORD AND THE WORD THERE
  • 10:39 AND THEN THE STORY THEY GAVE
  • 10:41 WHERE ON THE SAME DAY THAT ISRAEL IS DECLARED BY THE UN AND THOSE ARE DISCOVERED
  • 10:46 IT JUST SHOWS THE FINGERPRINT OF GOD EVERYWHERE.
  • 10:50 HELLO, I'M WAYNE FORNIER
  • 10:53 AND I'VE BEEN A SUPPORTER OF ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES FOR MANY YEARS.
  • 10:57 YOU KNOW THIS MINISTRY BRINGS YOU
  • 10:59 THE WEEKLY TELEVISION PROGRAM "ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS",
  • 11:03 THE WEBSITE "LEVITT.COM"
  • 11:05 AND THE "LEVITT LETTER"...
  • 11:07 A FREE MONTHLY NEWS MAGAZINE.
  • 11:10 HOW HAS THIS HAPPENED WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF A CHURCH...
  • 11:13 A DENOMINATION...
  • 11:15 OR SOME ENDOWMENT PAYING THE BILLS?
  • 11:18 THE LORD HAS SEEN FIT TO USE REGULAR PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME.
  • 11:23 WE'RE THE ONES WHO KEEP THIS MINISTRY GOING.
  • 11:26 YOU KNOW...ASKING FOR CONTRIBUTIONS CAN BE AWKWARD
  • 11:30 BUT NOT ASKING CAN BE DETRIMENTAL.
  • 11:33 ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS OUR FOUNDER ZOLA LEVITT WOULD SURPRISE VIEWERS WHEN HE WOULD SAY,
  • 11:38 "WE DON'T NEED YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS RIGHT NOW."
  • 11:41 "GIVE TO YOUR HOME CHURCH OR TO ANOTHER MINISTRY."
  • 11:44 "WHEN WE NEED SUPPORT WE'LL TELL YOU BUT WE'RE FINE RIGHT NOW."
  • 11:49 SUCH A STATEMENT SOUNDED LUDICROUS
  • 11:51 BUT IT ESTABLISHED THE FACT
  • 11:53 THAT ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES IS NOT TRYING TO MAKE A FORTUNE OUT OF THE MINISTRY.
  • 11:58 THE RESOURCES OF BIBLICAL MATERIALS WE OFFER
  • 12:01 ARE THOSE THAT ARE HELPFUL TO OUR VIEWER'S SPIRITUAL WALK.
  • 12:05 ZOLA LEVITT WENT HOME TO THE LORD SEVEN YEARS AGO
  • 12:08 BUT MYLES AND KATHERINE WEISS CONTINUE TO SOUND THE CALL
  • 12:12 FOR THE CHURCH TO RECOGNIZE THAT GOD IS NOT FINISHED WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 12:17 AND ISRAEL REMAINS HIS TIMEPIECE.
  • 12:20 WHEN I HEARD THE GOSPEL FROM A MESSIANIC PERSPECTIVE IT STRENGTHENED MY FAITH IN GOD.
  • 12:25 BUT IT WAS SOMETHING I RECOGNIZED AS BEING WORTHY OF MY FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
  • 12:30 IF YOU SEE THIS OUTREACH AS WORTHY OF YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT
  • 12:33 PLEASE CALL US AT 1-800-WONDERS...
  • 12:37 VISIT US ONLINE AT LEVITT.COM...
  • 12:40 OR WRITE TO US AT ZOLA, BOX 12268, DALLAS, TX 75225.
  • 12:47 WE DEPEND ON YOUR FINANCIAL SUSTENANCE.
  • 12:51 THANK YOU.
  • 12:55 (MUSIC)
  • 13:12 YOU KNOW IN 1948 THE TIME CLOCK OF THE AGES STARTED TICKING AGAIN
  • 13:16 WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE CAME BACK TO THIS LAND AND IT WAS OFFICIALLY RENAMED ISRAEL.
  • 13:20 IT'S AN ANCIENT STORY.
  • 13:22 IT'S AN ANCIENT STORY BUT ISRAEL IS A MODERN CITY TODAY
  • 13:25 AND IT'S NOT ONLY SPEAKING OF YESTERDAY'S PROPHECY
  • 13:28 BUT IT'S SPEAKING OF TODAY'S PROPHECY.
  • 13:30 AND IT'S OUR JOY TO BRING YOU THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE
  • 13:33 AND OF THE WITNESSES THAT ARE WITNESSING OF GOD'S FAITHFULNESS TODAY
  • 13:37 BUT WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS
  • 13:39 SO PLEASE REMEMBER US AT THIS TIME.
  • 13:41 YOU KNOW WE LOVE TO BRING YOU THE STORIES FROM THE BIBLE.
  • 13:44 WE USE ISRAELI ACTORS.
  • 13:45 THEY'RE SPEAKING IN HEBREW WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES.
  • 13:48 BUT YOU NOW WE ALSO LIKE TO TIE IT IN TO THE PRESENT DAY
  • 13:52 TO SEE HOW THE BLESSING PROMISED TO ABRAHAM IS STILL IN EFFECT.
  • 13:56 SO NOW LET'S GO AND LOOK AGAIN AT SOME CLIPS FROM THE UPCOMING SHOWS.
  • 14:05 YOU'RE SITTING IN THE SYNAGOGUE.
  • 14:08 WHEN THE ZEALOTS CAME HERE THEY REFUSED TO LIVE IN THE COMFORT SPOTS OF THE ROMANS.
  • 14:14 THEY LIVED IN THE WALLS.
  • 14:17 NOW I DON'T ADVOCATE ASCETICISM
  • 14:19 AND I DON'T ADVOCATE EPICUREANISM.
  • 14:21 WE'RE NOT GOING TO INDULGE OVERLY OR TORTURE OURSELVES
  • 14:25 BUT IT IS NOTABLE THAT THEY WERE...IT WAS IMPORTANT TO THEM
  • 14:28 TO NOT PARTAKE OF THE ROMAN SYSTEM IN ANY WAY.
  • 14:32 YOU'RE ALSO SITTING IN A SYNAGOGUE WHERE WHEN THE QUMRAN SCROLLS WERE FOUND
  • 14:37 EZEKIEL 37 WAS FOUND IN THIS BUILDING.
  • 14:41 EZEKIEL 37 IF YOU'LL REMEMBER IS THE PASSAGE WHERE GOD PROPHESIES
  • 14:46 THAT THE GRAVES ARE GOING TO OPEN,
  • 14:49 THE BONES ARE GOING TO COME TOGETHER
  • 14:51 AND THAT THERE WILL BE A RENAISSANCE OR A REBUILDING OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 14:56 IN FACT IT WAS A CLEAR PROPHETIC PICTURE OF WHAT HAPPENED IN NAZI GERMANY
  • 15:01 AND THE RE-BIRTH THAT FOLLOWED SHORTLY THEREAFTER.
  • 15:04 WELL THAT WAS FOUND RIGHT HERE.
  • 15:06 GOD CONFIRMS HIS WORD WITH SIGNS.
  • 15:10 HE CONFIRMS HIS WORD AND DOES WHAT HE SAYS HE'S GOING TO DO.
  • 15:13 AND THAT'S REALLY OUR STORY ISN'T IT?
  • 15:15 GOD SAYS IT AND THEN HE DOES IT.
  • 15:18 OUR JOB IS TO BELIEVE IT, RIGHT.
  • 15:20 AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 15:22 AND IN THIS SETTING IT'S REALLY A PLACE FOR US TO CONSIDER WHAT WE ARE BEING CALLED TO
  • 15:28 AS THE CHURCH OF GOD IN THIS ERA IN THIS TIME.
  • 15:33 YOU KNOW, ARE WE BEING CALLED TO LIVE FOR ENTERTAINMENT?
  • 15:36 ARE WE BEING CALLED TO LIVE AS ROMANS WITHIN A CHURCH SETTING?
  • 15:41 OR CAN WE LEARN SOMETHING FROM THE ZEALOTS
  • 15:44 AND LEARN SOMETHING FROM THE PROPHETS THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES
  • 15:47 AND REALLY ADD IN TO OUR HEARTS THE PICTURE THAT WE GET FROM RUTH...RUTH THE GENTLE,
  • 15:54 RUTH THE MOABITESS,
  • 15:56 RUTH THE ONE THAT WAS GRAFTED-IN TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL
  • 15:59 AND BECOMES THE ANCESTOR OF KING DAVID
  • 16:02 AND THEREBY THE ANCESTOR OF YESHUA HAMASHIACH, JESUS CHRIST, DAVID'S GREATER SON.
  • 16:08 AND SO YOU REPRESENT RUTH.
  • 16:11 REMEMBER HER CRY?
  • 16:13 SHE CAME FROM THE DESERT.
  • 16:15 THE DESERT, M'DBAR" MEANS "TO SPEAK".
  • 16:17 WHENEVER WE'RE IN THIS QUIET PLACE
  • 16:19 WHEN THESE ZEALOTS WERE HERE,
  • 16:21 WHEN WE ARE TRAVELING THROUGH HERE
  • 16:23 IT'S A TIME FOR US TO HEAR WHAT GOD IS SAYING.
  • 16:26 "LET HIM WHO HAS EARS TO HEAR, HEAR WHAT THE SPIRIT IS SAYING TO THE CHURCH".
  • 16:30 AND THAT'S WHAT SEASON THAT WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW.
  • 16:33 WELL WHAT DID RUTH SAY TO NAOMI HER JEWISH MOTHER-IN-LAW?
  • 16:35 SHE SAID "DON'T LET ME GO FROM YOU...WHERE YOU GO I WILL GO,"
  • 16:40 "WHERE YOU LIVE, YOU'RE PEOPLE SHALL BE MY PEOPLE AND YOU'RE GOD MY GOD."
  • 16:45 AND I SUBMIT TO YOU
  • 16:47 THAT THE AWAKENING THAT'S TAKING PLACE IN THE CHURCH OF GOD TODAY AROUND THE WORLD
  • 16:51 IS THAT SAME MESSAGE.
  • 16:53 THAT'S THE MESSAGE THAT IS GOING TO THE ISRAELITES AROUND THE WORLD...
  • 16:57 THE HEBREWS IN THE DIASPORA AND THOSE THAT ARE LIVING HERE,
  • 17:00 IS THAT THE HEART CRY THAT'S COMING FROM YOU AS RUTHS THE GENTILE TO NAOMIS
  • 17:06 IS LET'S GO INTO THE HARVEST FIELD AND MEET BOAZ TOGETHER.
  • 17:16 THE HEBREW NAME FOR GETHSEMANE IT IS "GET SHMANIM"
  • 17:19 AND IT MEANS OLIVE PRESS, SIMPLY AS THAT.
  • 17:22 I NOTICED THAT THERE IS IN MATTHEW 26
  • 17:25 THERE'S THE STORY OF YESHUA IN THE GARDEN WITH HIS DISCIPLES
  • 17:29 BUT JUST WITH THE OLIVE THERE'S THREE PRESSINGS.
  • 17:32 YESHUA DEMONSTRATES THREE PRESSINGS ALSO.
  • 17:35 TELL US.
  • 17:36 EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 17:37 OLIVES WHEN THEY WERE COLLECTED
  • 17:40 THEY WERE BROUGHT TO THE MILLSTONE
  • 17:42 AND THEY WERE CRUSHED.
  • 17:44 AND THEN CRUSHED OLIVES WERE COLLECTED IN BAGS
  • 17:47 AND THE BAGS WERE BROUGHT TO THE OLIVE PRESS
  • 17:50 AND THEY USED TO PRESS THE OLIVES THREE TIMES.
  • 17:54 AND THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY PRESSED THE OLIVES
  • 17:59 THE FINEST OIL, THE FINEST OIL CAME OUT DURING THE FIRST TIME THAT THE OLIVES WERE PRESSED
  • 18:04 AND THAT WAS KNOWN AS THE PUREST OIL, THE VIRGIN OIL.
  • 18:07 IT WAS USED FOR ANOINTING.
  • 18:09 FOR ANOINTING OF KINGS
  • 18:11 AND FOR USE IN THE TEMPLE...SACRED OIL.
  • 18:13 SACRED OIL
  • 18:14 OKAY, THAT'S ONE...
  • 18:15 AND THEN AFTER A WHILE THE BAGS WERE PRESSED AGAIN
  • 18:19 AND SO IN ORDER TO INCREASE THE PRESSURE ON THE BAGS THEY USED TO ADD ANOTHER WEIGHT.
  • 18:25 AND THE SECOND OIL WAS USED FOR A HEALING AND FOR LIGHT.
  • 18:31 SECOND PRESSING FOR HEALING AND FOR LIGHT...
  • 18:34 AND THEN ANOTHER WEIGHT WAS ADDED FOR THE FINAL PRESS
  • 18:39 AND OF COURSE AGAIN THE PRESSURE AND ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS USED FOR MAKING SALT FOR CLEANSING.
  • 18:45 YOU TIE THIS IN TO THE JEWISHNESS OF THE GOSPEL.
  • 18:49 A BLESSING THAT GOES BACK TO THE TIME OF AARON
  • 18:53 WAS WHEN GOD TOLD MOSES TO HAVE AARON STAND BEFORE THE PEOPLE AND BLESS THEM IN THIS WAY.
  • 18:58 AND EVERY TIME THIS IS DONE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION I WILL PUT MY NAME UPON THE PEOPLE.
  • 19:05 SO YOU RECEIVE THIS AS FROM THE LORD AND LET'S TAKE IT FROM THIS PLACE OKAY?
  • 19:11 (MYLES SINGING IN HEBREW)
  • 19:39 THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU.
  • 19:42 THE LORD CAUSE HIS FACE TO SHINE UPON YOU,
  • 19:44 BE GRACIOUS UNTO TO YOU.
  • 19:46 THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU
  • 19:48 AND GRANT YOU HIS SHALOM.
  • 19:50 B'HASHEM YESHUA HAMASHIACH.
  • 19:53 AMEN
  • 19:56 ♪OH THE BLOOD OF JESUS♪
  • 20:02 ♪IT WASHES WHITE AS SNOW♪
  • 20:10 AMEN
  • 20:13 THE BODY AND THE BLOOD...
  • 20:16 THERE WAS ONLY ONE BODY, SINLESS,
  • 20:20 IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.
  • 20:23 IT WAS THE ONLY BODY THAT COULD BE BROKEN SO THAT WE COULD BE HEALED....
  • 20:28 THE ONLY BODY THAT COULD BE BROKEN SO THAT WE COULD COME TOGETHER...
  • 20:33 ONLY ONE BODY THAT IS ABLE TO MAKE US WHOLE AGAIN...
  • 20:39 AND THAT'S THE BODY OF YESHUA.
  • 20:41 AND THE PRAYERS THAT WE PRAY GO BACK TO THE TIME OF THE FIRST CENTURY.
  • 20:46 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 20:53 "BLESSED ARE YOU LORD GOD, KING OF THE UNIVERSE WHO BRINGS FORTH BREAD FROM THE EARTH."
  • 20:58 GOD WE THANK YOU FOR SENDING YOUR SON.
  • 21:01 YESHUA WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR BODY BROKEN FOR US.
  • 21:06 WE THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE THE BREAD OF HEAVEN THAT CAME,
  • 21:09 WENT INTO THE EARTH, CAME UP OUT OF THE EARTH
  • 21:12 AND PRESENTED TO THE FATHER AS A RANSOM WORTHY.
  • 21:16 AND WE THANK YOU FOR THAT SACRIFICE.
  • 21:19 IN YESHUA'S NAME...AMEN.
  • 21:22 LET'S TAKE THAT...
  • 21:25 ACTUALLY WHAT I THOUGHT WHEN I WENT IN THE TOMB
  • 21:27 WAS A REVERBERATION OF WHAT JOHN WROTE IN REVELATION ABOUT WHAT JESUS SAID TO HIM...
  • 21:33 I AM HE THAT WAS DEAD BUT I'M ALIVE FOREVERMORE.
  • 21:37 AND IT JUST BOUNCED OFF THE WALLS IN THERE TO ME LITERALLY.
  • 21:42 IT'S AN AMAZING PLACE.

  • 22:21 THIS AREA IT'S CALLED HA KODESH WHICH MEANS "THE HOLY".
  • 22:23 ONLY THE PRIESTS WERE ALLOWED TO BE INSIDE.
  • 22:25 WE SEE THERE'S DIFFERENT RINGS OF HOLINESS RIGHT THROUGHOUT THE COURTYARD
  • 22:29 WHICH ONLY THE PERSON LEVI WERE ALLOWED TO BE INSIDE.
  • 22:31 IN HERE AFTER THE SECOND CURTAIN ONLY THE PRIESTS
  • 22:33 AND THEN AFTER THE THIRD CURTAIN IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 22:36 IS ONLY THE HIGH PRIEST ONLY ONCE A YEAR.
  • 22:39 THE MENORAH ON THE SOUTH SIDE WAS FROM PURE GOLD.
  • 22:42 IT WAS ONE PIECE OF GOLD AND IT HAD 7 LAMPS.
  • 22:46 HERE EVERY DAY THEY HAD TO PUT OLIVE OIL IN THE MORNING AND IN THE EVENING
  • 22:49 BECAUSE THIS WAS ALWAYS BURNING ALL THE TIME.
  • 22:53 THE MENORAH WAS ACTUALLY THE ONLY LIGHT THEY HAD IN THIS AREA
  • 22:56 THE CURTAIN HERE WAS CLOSED.
  • 22:58 THIS WAS THE ONLY LIGHT THEY HAD.
  • 23:00 JUST IN FRONT OF IT ON THE NORTH SIDE WE HAVE THE SHOWBREAD TABLE WITH THE 12 SHOWBREADS
  • 23:06 WHICH ONE WOULD PRESENT EACH TRIBE FOR ITS HOLY BREAD.
  • 23:09 ONLY THE PRIESTS WERE ALLOWED TO EAT FROM THIS BREAD.
  • 23:12 BUT SOMEONE ELSE DID IT FROM THIS.WHO WAS THAT?
  • 23:14 DAVID...EXACTLY...
  • 23:16 KING DAVID ATE FROM THIS BUT HE WASN'T ALONE WAS HE?
  • 23:19 NO...OH HE HAD 400 MEN WITH HIM.
  • 23:24 NO THOSE MEN THAT WERE WITH HIM THEY WERE NOT SO GOOD PEOPLE.
  • 23:26 THEY WERE THIEVES, ROBBERS, RIGHT?
  • 23:28 MURDERERS...REBELS... BAD PEOPLE.
  • 23:31 NOW WE ALL KNOW THAT GOD IS A HOLY GOD
  • 23:33 AND GOD IS A RIGHTEOUS JUDGE
  • 23:35 BECAUSE IT'S WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.
  • 23:37 AND SO WE HAD AARON THE HIGH PRIEST...AARON HAD FOUR SONS.
  • 23:40 TWO OF HIS SONS NADAB AND ABHIHU...OFFERED STRANGE FIRE.
  • 23:43 WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 23:44 GOD KILLED THEM STRAIGHT AWAY.
  • 23:46 WHY? BECAUSE THEY TOOK SOMETHING HOLY AND DID SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITH IT, RIGHT?
  • 23:50 THEY DID WHATEVER THEY WANT.
  • 23:58 HERE WE ARE IN PETRA.
  • 24:00 IT IS THE PLACE OF SOME GREAT SPECULATION...PROPHETIC WORDS AND SPECULATION.
  • 24:06 YOU'VE HEARD SOME HISTORY REGARDING THE FORMATION OF THIS PLACE
  • 24:09 AND WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT THE FUTURE HERE AS WELL.
  • 24:13 ISAIAH 62:10-12 AND ISAIAH 63 FORM A PICTURE OF THE COMING OF MESSIAH.
  • 24:22 THERE'S SOMETHING SPOKEN OF THERE ABOUT THE HIDING...
  • 24:25 ABOUT THE HIDING AWAY THAT WILL HAPPEN AT THE TIME OF TRANSITION.
  • 24:29 REMEMBER WE SPOKE ABOUT THE TIME OF JOHN THE BAPTIST, YOCHANAN, "HaMatbil", JOHN THE IMMERSOR.
  • 24:35 THAT WAS A TIME OF TRANSITION.
  • 24:37 WHILE THERE WAS A CORRUPT PRIESTHOOD IN THE TEMPLE,
  • 24:40 AT THE SAME TIME JOHN WAS OUT AT THE JORDAN RIVER
  • 24:43 BAPTIZING PEOPLE UNTO REPENTANCE AND INCLUDING BAPTIZING YESHUA.
  • 24:48 SO IT WAS A TRANSITIONAL PERIOD
  • 24:50 WHERE THE PRIESTHOOD WAS FAILING,
  • 24:51 A CLEAN PRIESTHOOD WAS ARISING EMBODIED BY JOHN THE BAPTIST
  • 24:56 AND AT THE SAME A TRANSITIONAL PERIOD LEADING TO THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE LORD.
  • 25:02 WELL SO IT IS WITH REGARDING PETRA.
  • 25:04 THERE IS A LOT OF SPECULATION ABOUT WHAT THE FUTURE MAY HOLD HERE
  • 25:08 WHETHER THIS WILL BE IN FACT A PLACE FOR JEWISH FOLKS
  • 25:11 TO COME AND HIDE WHEN THE ANTI-CHRIST IS ARISING.
  • 25:15 AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE 144,000 WILL BE PREACHING
  • 25:19 AND WILL BE BRINGING IN THE GREATEST HARVEST AT THE END OF THE AGE
  • 25:22 ANOTHER TRANSITIONAL PERIOD INCLUDING WHAT'S SPOKEN OF
  • 25:26 AS THE TIME OF THE ONE WHOSE GARMENT IS DIPPED IN BLOOD COMING FROM BOSRA...MESSIAH.
  • 25:37 I MEAN WE HAD FIFTEEN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES
  • 25:39 COMING HERE TO BE IN THE LAND
  • 25:41 JUST TO COME AND HARVEST THE GRAPES IN THE LAST YEAR.
  • 25:45 AND SO OVER THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF THERE'S BEEN OVER 500 PEOPLE.
  • 25:50 THERE'S BEEN OVER A THOUSAND PEOPLE COME SINCE WE STARTED COMING HERE
  • 25:55 JUST TO WORK IN THE LAND TO TASTE THE GRAPES AND THE WINE THAT...YOU KNOW
  • 26:02 EVEN YESHUA SAID THAT I'LL NOT DRINK THIS CUP AGAIN...
  • 26:09 FROM MY FATHER'S VINEYARD AGAIN
  • 26:12 UNTIL WE DRINK IT AGAIN IN THE KINGDOM...
  • 26:15 IN MY FATHER'S KINGDOM.
  • 26:17 SO THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE CALIFORNIA WINE.
  • 26:22 YOU KNOW WHAT, IN ISAIAH 25 IT SPEAKS ABOUT THIS FEAST
  • 26:26 THAT THIS END TIMES FEAST...
  • 26:28 AND WHAT'S HAPPENING WE'RE PREPARING FOR A HUGE FEAST.
  • 26:33 THE BEAUTIFUL THING IS IS THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR IT TOO.
  • 26:41 WHEN WE SEE WHAT TOMMY WALLER IS DOING UP IN SAMARIA
  • 26:44 STANDING WITH THE ORTHODOX JEWS
  • 26:47 AND TOGETHER JEWS AND CHRISTIANS PLANTING THE VINEYARDS,
  • 26:50 HARVESTING THE GRAPES,
  • 26:51 MAKING THE WINE JUST AS THE PROPHETS HAVE FORETOLD.
  • 26:54 WE KNOW THAT MESSIAH IS COMING SOON.
  • 26:56 ABSOLUTELY, WE ARE IN THE TIME
  • 26:57 OF THE FULFILLMENT OF SCRIPTURES.
  • 26:59 EZEKIEL 36 AND ISAIAH 49...
  • 27:02 THEY'RE ALL COMING ALIVE BEFORE OUR EYES
  • 27:05 AND IT'S OUR JOY TO BRING YOU THESE PROGRAMS.
  • 27:07 AND WE WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS
  • 27:09 THAT ALLOW US TO BRING YOU THESE PROGRAMS.
  • 27:11 YOU KNOW IT TAKES QUITE A BIT OF MONEY TO FLY US OVER HERE
  • 27:14 AND FOR US TO GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET WITH PEOPLE
  • 27:17 THAT ARE WORKING HERE IN THE LAND
  • 27:19 BUT IT'S OUR PRIVILEGE TO DO IT.
  • 27:21 LIKE I SAID BEFORE, WE SET OUR FACE LIKE A FLINT
  • 27:24 TO FULFILL THE CALL OF GOD THAT'S ON OUR LIFE AND ON YOUR LIFE
  • 27:28 AND THAT IS TO STAND WITH THE PEOPLE OF THIS LAND.
  • 27:31 YEAH IT'S SO GREAT FOR US TO BE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER WITH YOU.
  • 27:34 WITH YOUR GIFTS OF FUNDS AND WITH OUR LABOR,
  • 27:36 TOGETHER WE ARE ABLE TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THE LIES IN THE MEDIA,
  • 27:39 PUSH BACK AGAINST THE LIES AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AGAINST ISRAEL
  • 27:43 AND TO MAKE A STATEMENT TOGETHER THAT THIS IS A GOD THING,
  • 27:46 THAT GOD RE-ESTABLISHED THE STATE IN 1948
  • 27:49 AND HE'S CONTINUING TO DO WONDERFUL THINGS HERE.
  • 27:52 SO WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH US.
  • 27:54 WE ALWAYS WANT TO REMIND YOU,
  • 27:56 SHAL'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 27:58 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
