Series: “Journey of Restoration”
Through this ten-part series, you join a group of pilgrims touring Israel. Our Messianic Sabra (native-born) guide opens the Bible with the Hebrew language at his command. Be enriched as pastors Myles and Katharine Weiss tag-team with our local guides. Meet “living stones” of the Body of Messiah in the Land, many of whom ZLM supports through benevolent funds.
Episode: “Yeshua’s Galilee Ministry”
After a visit to the Jesus Boat Museum, we board a boat on the Sea of Galilee where Myles teaches about the Lord’s authority over all. On the Mount of Beatitudes, Yuval and Myles read the Beatitudes in Hebrew and English. At Capernaum, Myles teaches about the Lord’s miracles, especially the miracle of salvation. Many pilgrims rededicate their lives in baptism at the Jordan River.

Caption transcript for Journey of Restoration: “Yeshua’s Galilee Ministry” (2/10)

  • 00:06 I LOVE ISRAEL,
  • 00:07 I LOVE THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:09 IT'S TOTALLY SO...
  • 00:10 IT'S INDESCRIBABLE.
  • 00:11 IT FEELS LIKE HOME...
  • 00:13 IT JUST FEELS LIKE HOME.
  • 00:15 WELCOME TO JERUSALEM...IT JUST TOOK MY BREATH AWAY.
  • 00:18 IT JUST SHOWS THE FINGER PRINT OF GOD EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:20 TO REALIZE HOW SPECIAL THIS CITY AND THE PEOPLE WERE TO THE LORD...
  • 00:25 IT'S GOD'S CHOSEN LAND AND JESUS WALKED ON IT.
  • 00:29 I THINK THERE'S A RESTORATION AS PASTOR MYLES TALKED ABOUT.
  • 00:32 HOW GOD IS REALLY GATHERING THE JEWS.
  • 00:38 THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST WE'VE BEEN GRAFTED-IN AND NOW THIS IS OUR CITY ALSO.
  • 00:54 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 00:55 I'M MYLES WEISS
  • 00:57 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS.
  • 00:58 AND WE ARE CONTINUING OUR JOURNEY OF RESTORATION,
  • 01:00 A DREAM COME TRUE, WE BRING ISRAEL TO YOU.
  • 01:03 I LOVE THAT MYLES.
  • 01:04 IT'S REALLY BEEN OUR HEART TO BRING ISRAEL TO YOU.
  • 01:07 YOU KNOW WE'RE GOING TO SEE TODAY IN THIS PROGRAM THE GALILEE.
  • 01:11 ISRAELIES CALL IT THE KINNERET, "THE LAKE OF THE HARP"
  • 01:16 BECAUSE IT'S SHAPED...
  • 01:18 THE WORD ITSELF MEANS HARP BECAUSE IT'S SHAPED LIKE A HARP.
  • 01:21 SO WE'RE GOING TO JOURNEY AND TAKE YOU TO THE GALILEE TODAY IN THIS PROGRAM.
  • 01:24 YES AND THE GALILEE IS THE MAJOR SOURCE OF FRESH WATER FOR THE ENTIRE NATION.
  • 01:29 SO WHEN WE READ IN ISAIAH 35 THAT THE DESERT SHALL BLOOM LIKE A ROSE THIS IS THE HOW OF THAT.
  • 01:34 OF COURSE THE RAINFALL COMES BUT THE HOLDING TANK OF THE FRESH WATER IS THE GALILEE
  • 01:39 AND SO MANY OF JESUS' MIRACLES, SO MUCH OF THE GOSPEL TOOK PLACE THERE.
  • 01:43 AND SO THIS JOURNEY OF RESTORATION
  • 01:45 IS GOING TO TAKE YOU THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE LAND IN THIS ENTIRE SERIES
  • 01:48 BUT TODAY LET'S GO TO THE GALILEE.
  • 01:52 (Myles speaking) WE START OUR DAY WITH A VISIT TO KIBBUTZ GINOSAR
  • 01:56 JUST NORTH OF THE SEA OF GALILEE.
  • 01:59 IT'S HERE THAT AN ANCIENT WOODEN BOAT IS ON DISPLAY REFERRED TO AS "THE JESUS BOAT".
  • 02:03 IT WAS PULLED FROM THE SEA IN 1986 AND IT'S BEEN POSITIVELY DATED TO THE 1ST CENTURY.
  • 02:09 THE BOAT IS THE TYPE THAT JESUS WOULD HAVE USED IN HIS MINISTRY WHILE IN THE GALILEE AREA.
  • 02:14 A SHORT WALK ALONG THE SHORE TAKES US TO ANOTHER BOAT.
  • 02:18 THIS ONE IS SIMILAR IN FEELING TO THE JESUS BOAT
  • 02:20 BUT MUCH LARGER AND COMFORTABLY EQUIPPED TO ACCOMMODATE OUR TOUR GROUP FOR PRAISE AND WORSHIP.
  • 02:26 OUR TOUR GUIDE, YUVAL SHEMSH, STARTS BY PROVIDING US WITH THE BACKGROUND
  • 02:30 TO THE INCREDIBLE BIBLICAL PANORAMA THAT SURROUNDS US ON THE SEA OF GALILEE.
  • 02:38 NORTHERN SHORE YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE THE MOUNT OF THE BEATITUDES RIGHT THERE.
  • 02:44 IF YOU GO FROM THE BOAT UP TO THE HILL
  • 02:47 AND YOU SEE A GROUP OF TREES AND THERE IS A STRUCTURE IN BETWEEN THE TREES.
  • 02:51 IT'S A CHAPEL.
  • 02:52 IT'S A CHURCH.
  • 02:54 THIS IS THE MOUNT OF THE BEATITUDES.
  • 02:56 WE'RE QUITE CONFIDENT ABOUT THAT BECAUSE IT IS NOT FAR AWAY FROM CAPERNAUM
  • 03:00 AND IT IS THE MAIN MOUNTAIN THERE IN BETWEEN CAPERNAUM AND TABGHA.
  • 03:05 SO WE BELIEVE THAT WHENEVER IT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE THAT JESUS WENT UP TO THE MOUNTAIN
  • 03:10 IT REFERS TO THE MOUNTAIN RIGHT THERE.
  • 03:14 (Myles speaking) IT'S PRETTY AMAZING.
  • 03:16 YOU THINK ABOUT THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH COMES TO EARTH AS A MAN
  • 03:20 AND DOES MOST OF HIS WORK IN THIS TINY LITTLE AREA OF THE WORLD.
  • 03:23 AND YOUR BEING HERE MEANS THAT YOU ARE KNITTING YOURSELVES INTO THE STORY
  • 03:28 BECAUSE THE STORY DIDN'T END 2,000 YEARS AGO;
  • 03:31 IT ACTUALLY DIDN'T BEGIN 2,000 YEARS AGO
  • 03:33 BECAUSE YOU'RE GRAFTED INTO THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL
  • 03:36 BY COMING HERE AND BEING PART OF ISRAEL'S STORY
  • 03:39 YOU ARE HAVING A 4,000 YEAR OLD HISTORY GOING BACK TO THE TIME OF ABRAHAM
  • 03:44 WHICH MEANS THAT YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A DOUBLE PORTION ANOINTING
  • 03:48 AND A DOUBLE PORTION OF BLESSING AS YOU ARE GRAFTED-IN TO THE COMMONWEALTH OF ISRAEL.
  • 03:54 IN A FEW MINUTES YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR ONE OF THE GREATEST TESTIMONIES
  • 03:56 OF DANIEL'S COMING TO THE LORD HERE ON THIS WORSHIP BOAT
  • 03:59 AND HOW GOD IS USING HIM HERE ON THE GALILEE
  • 04:02 BUT THERE'S SO MANY STORIES HERE ABOUT WHAT JESUS DID;
  • 04:06 WHAT YESHUA DID HERE.
  • 04:07 THERE ARE TOO MANY TO TELL.
  • 04:09 IT SAYS IN THE SCRIPTURE THAT IF WE TRIED TO TELL OF...
  • 04:12 ALL THE BOOKS IN THE WORLD COULDN'T CONTAIN
  • 04:15 THAT WHICH YESHUA DID AND WHAT HE TAUGHT HERE.
  • 04:18 THE REALITY IS THAT IN JOHN CHAPTER 6
  • 04:21 WHEN HE CAME WALKING ON THE WINDS AND THE WAVES...
  • 04:25 THERE'S A LOT OF SUPERSTITION AMONG THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 04:27 I CAN TELL YOU I WAS RAISED WITH A JEWISH MOTHER AND A JEWISH GRANDMOTHER
  • 04:31 AND WE ARE GIVEN TO SUPERSTITION.
  • 04:33 WELL BACK IN THE DAY THAT WAS ALSO THE CASE
  • 04:35 AND SUPERSTITION AROUND THE LAKE HAD TO DO WITH THE god's OF THE AREA...LITTLE "g" gods
  • 04:40 THAT THEY BELIEVED LIVED BELOW THE WATER
  • 04:42 AND THE IDEA THAT IF YOU SAW A GHOST IN THE NIGHTTIME THAT IT WAS YOUR TIME TO DIE.
  • 04:47 SO HERE COMES YESHUA WALKING IN THE WIND AND THE WAVES ACROSS THE WATER
  • 04:52 AND THEY FEAR THEY'RE GOING TO DIE.
  • 04:55 BUT WHAT WAS HE DOING?
  • 04:56 THIS IS A LESSON FOR YOU AND FOR ME.
  • 04:59 HE WAS ESTABLISHING THAT HE HAS COMPLETE AUTHORITY
  • 05:02 OVER EVERY DEMONIC FORCE AND EVERY HUMAN FORCE
  • 05:05 AND ANY OTHER THING THAT EXULTS ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.
  • 05:09 HE WAS WALKING ABOVE ANY AUTHORITY THAT HELD ITSELF UP
  • 05:14 AND HE WAS DEMONSTRATING WHO HE IS IN HIS MIRACULOUS WAY OF BEING HERE IN THIS AREA.
  • 05:20 AND THEN IF WE FAST FORWARD TO JOHN 21
  • 05:22 WHEN PETER IS BEING RESTORED AND WHEN THAT WHOLE PASSAGE IS COMING TO PASS
  • 05:27 WHERE THIS WONDERFUL BEACH WALK HAPPENS AT TABGHA
  • 05:30 AND ALL OF THE WONDERFUL THINGS THAT JESUS DID AFTER RESURRECTION AND ASCENSION
  • 05:36 THERE WAS THAT MOMENT WHERE HE SAID TO THEM...
  • 05:39 THAT HAD BEEN FISHING ALL NIGHT LONG...
  • 05:42 CAST YOUR NETS TO THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 05:44 AND WHEN THEY DID THEY BROUGHT UP 153 FISH.WHY?
  • 05:51 WHY 153 FISH?
  • 05:54 BECAUSE EVERY HEBREW LETTER HAS A NUMERICAL VALUE;
  • 05:57 EVERY HEBREW NUMBER HAS A LETTER VALUE
  • 05:59 AND 153 SAYS "ANI ELOHIM"...
  • 06:03 "I AM GOD".
  • 06:05 AND SO YESHUA IN THIS AREA CONSISTENTLY CONFIRMED FOR WHOEVER HAD EARS TO HEAR
  • 06:11 THAT HE IS THE ONE THAT CAN TRANSLATE PEOPLE
  • 06:14 FROM THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS TO THE KINGDOM OF LIGHT.
  • 06:16 WHEN THEY SAID...IMMEDIATELY THEY WERE ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  • 06:19 IT'S A PICTURE FOR US OF THE TRANSLATION FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT
  • 06:23 THAT HAPPENS TO US WHEN WE'RE BORN OF HIS SPIRIT.
  • 06:26 YOU HEARD A TESTIMONY ABOUT THAT YESTERDAY AT CARMEL.
  • 06:28 THAT'S MY STORY AS WELL.
  • 06:30 THAT'S DANIEL'S AS WELL.
  • 06:31 SOME OF YOU HERE...
  • 06:32 THERE WAS A MOMENT IN TIME,
  • 06:34 THERE WAS A SEASON IN TIME
  • 06:36 WHEN GOD CHANGED YOU FROM THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON.
  • 06:39 AND THAT'S THE PICTURE THAT TAKES PLACE HERE AT THE GALILEE
  • 06:42 AND IT'S ALWAYS ABOUT HIS AUTHORITY,
  • 06:45 HIS ABILITY TO BE THE AUTHORITY OVER WHATEVER STORM IS FACING YOU TODAY.
  • 06:52 SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE FACING IN YOUR LIFE...
  • 06:54 IF IT'S A HEALTH CHALLENGE
  • 06:55 OR A LOVED ONE THAT YOU'RE PRAYING FOR
  • 06:57 OR FINANCIAL ISSUES;
  • 06:58 WHATEVER IT IS HE HAS ALL AUTHORITY
  • 07:01 AND TODAY HERE IN GALILEE WHEN CAN REALLY SENSE THAT HE IS WHO HE SAYS HE IS.
  • 07:07 AMEN?
  • 07:08 (EVERYONE) AMEN
  • 07:10 HALLELUJAH
  • 07:13 (Katharine speaking) DANIEL CARMEL IS A JEWISH BELIEVER
  • 07:15 AND IS THE SKIPPER OF THE BOAT CALLED "FAITH".
  • 07:18 HE HAS BEEN ON OUR PROGRAM BEFORE AND OUR VIEWERS HAVE LOVED HIS TESTIMONY.
  • 07:23 HIS MUSIC IS ALWAYS A BLESSING.
  • 07:31 (Daniel singing in Hebrew)
  • 07:56 IT'S AMAZING TO THINK ABOUT BEING ON THE VERY SEA THAT JESUS WALKED ON.
  • 08:04 AND I THINK OF A SONG THAT MY COUSIN SINGS...
  • 08:07 "HE CAME WALKING ON THE WATER".
  • 08:10 AND ONE OF THE LINES IS "HE THREW ME A LIFELINE WHEN I WAS SINKING"
  • 08:14 AND I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT THAT EARLIER WHEN WE WERE CROSSING THIS.
  • 08:18 IT'S JUST AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.
  • 08:20 IT'S VERY EMOTIONAL... VERY EMOTIONAL.
  • 08:22 TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP HIM ALL OF THE TIME IS MY DAILY GOAL
  • 08:26 BUT TO DO THAT OUT HERE TODAY
  • 08:28 JUST WAS A BLESSING BEYOND MY THOUGHT OR MY IMAGINATION BEFORE COMING.
  • 08:33 IT WAS AWESOME.
  • 08:34 WELL IT'S AWESOME.
  • 08:35 I MEAN YOU JUST HAVE TO PINCH YOURSELF.
  • 08:37 YOU'VE JUST READ ABOUT THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 08:39 EVER SINCE YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL GOING TO SUNDAY SCHOOL
  • 08:41 AND HERE YOU ARE.
  • 08:42 IT'S JUST AMAZING.
  • 08:45 IT'S BREATHTAKING.
  • 08:47 IT'S AWESOME.
  • 08:49 I HATE TO USE THAT WORD BUT IT TRULY IS AWESOME.

  • 09:31 (Myles speaking) NOT FAR FROM THE NORTHERN SHORE OF THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 09:35 RESTS A SMALL PICTURESQUE MOUNTAIN CALLED "THE MOUNT OF BEATITUDES".
  • 09:39 OUR GROUP GATHERED ATOP THE MOUNT
  • 09:41 AS YUVAL SHARED HIS INSIGHTS REGARDING THIS STRATEGIC SITE.
  • 09:45 YOU'RE FACING A CHURCH WHICH WAS BUILT IN 1936 BY THE ITALIANS.
  • 09:50 IT IS AN OCTAGON CHURCH BECAUSE OF THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OKAY.
  • 09:55 BUT BEHIND IT, BEHIND THE WALL THERE IS A ROUND VALLEY
  • 10:02 THAT LOOKS LIKE A NATURAL AMPHITHEATER
  • 10:06 AND WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN JESUS CAME UP TO THE MOUNTAIN AND SAT DOWN IT WAS RIGHT HERE,
  • 10:11 RIGHT BEHIND WHERE THIS NATURAL AMPHITHEATER
  • 10:14 WHERE THE ACOUSTICS IT IS REAL PERFECT
  • 10:17 AND IT MAKES SENSE THAT IT WAS RIGHT HERE
  • 10:22 WHERE JESUS TAUGHT THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT.
  • 10:26 WE THINK THE THAT THE TIME THAT HE SPOKE WAS SPRINGTIME
  • 10:32 BECAUSE REMEMBER HE SPOKE ABOUT THE LILIES OF THE FIELD, THE BIRDS OF THE AIR,
  • 10:37 SO THIS IS THE TIME, THE TIME THAT THE FLOWERS WERE BLOOMING AROUND SPRINGTIME
  • 10:44 SO IT IS SPECIAL TO BE HERE AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR
  • 10:47 AND TO LOOK AT THE FLOWERS,
  • 10:49 TO LISTEN TO THE BIRDS
  • 10:50 AND TO LISTEN OF COURSE TO HIS TEACHING.
  • 10:55 (Myles speaking) YUVAL AND I OPENED OUR BIBLES TO MATTHEW 5
  • 10:59 AND READ THE MESSAGE YESHUA GAVE ON THIS VERY MOUNT 2,000 YEARS AGO.

  • 13:51 BECAUSE IT'S OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU TO YOU TO STAND WITH US AND TO HELP US
  • 13:56 WITH THIS WONDERFUL MINISTRY THAT GOD'S ALLOWED US TO BE PART OF.
  • 14:00 SO WE'RE SO GRATEFUL FOR THAT.
  • 14:03 WE'RE GOING TO BE GOING NOW TO CAPERNAUM
  • 14:05 AND WE'RE GOING TO BE HEARING A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE ANCIENT HISTORY OF THE SYNAGOGUE
  • 14:08 AND THIS AREA IN WHICH JESUS DID MOST OF HIS MINISTRY IN THE GALILEE AREA.
  • 14:13 SO NOW WE'LL GO TO HEAR FROM YUVAL IN CAPERNAUM.
  • 14:23 THEN HIS FAME WENT THROUGHOUT ALL SYRIA...
  • 14:27 SEE FOLLOWING THE WAY OF THE SEA "VIA MARIS" IS FROM HERE.
  • 14:30 NORTHEAST YOU WILL GET TO SYRIA TO MESOPOTAMIA AREA.
  • 14:34 AND THE GREAT MULTITUDES FOLLOWED HIM FROM GALILEE
  • 14:37 AND FROM DECAPOLIS, JERUSALEM, THE JORDAN AND BEHIND THE JORDAN.
  • 14:41 DECAPOLIS...GALILEE...FROM ALL THE SURROUNDING AREA.
  • 14:46 SO IT WAS A VERY CENTRAL PLACE.
  • 14:49 CAPERNAUM WAS LOCATED IN A VERY CENTRAL PLACE.
  • 14:53 AND THE WAY I SEE IT, IT WAS ALL PART OF GOD'S PLAN.
  • 14:56 YOU KNOW EARLIER BEFORE THE ROMANS THE GREEKS WERE HERE
  • 14:59 AND THEY BROUGHT TO THIS PART OF THE WORLD
  • 15:02 THE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE AT THAT TIME...THE GREEK LANGUAGE.
  • 15:05 THE ROMANS WHO CAME AFTER THEM AND TOOK THE LAND,
  • 15:08 THEY BEGAN TO CONNECT ALL THE KNOWN WORLD WITH THEIR ROADS.
  • 15:11 THEY BUILT MILES OF ROADS ALL OVER THE EMPIRE.
  • 15:14 AND THE GOSPEL WAS CARRIED OUT,
  • 15:16 THE GOOD NEWS, IN THE GREEK LANGUAGE FROM HERE ALL OVER.
  • 15:31 WE'RE IN CAPERNAUM THE PLACE OF MIRACLES.
  • 15:34 DID YOU HEAR WHEN YUVAL WAS SPEAKING
  • 15:36 THAT THERE WAS NEVER A METHOD,
  • 15:37 IT WAS ALWAYS RELATIONSHIP.
  • 15:39 THERE WASN'T ONE WAY THAT JESUS DID EVERYTHING EVERY TIME.
  • 15:43 IT'S ALWAYS RELATED TO RELATIONSHIP
  • 15:45 AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE SEE IN OUR OWN LIVES
  • 15:47 AND ESPECIALLY IN THE LIVES OF THE JEWISH BELIEVERS TODAY
  • 15:50 IS THAT THE GREATEST MIRACLE OF ALL IS THE MIRACLE OF SALVATION.
  • 15:54 YOU KNOW GOD HEALS THE BODY AND IT'S WONDERFUL.
  • 15:56 WE'VE SEEN EXPERIENCES;
  • 15:57 WE HAD THOSE EXPERIENCES;
  • 15:59 WE KNOW THAT HE STILL HEALS TODAY
  • 16:01 BUT THE GREATEST MIRACLE IS THE HEALING OF THE SOUL.
  • 16:03 AND A SIGN AND A WONDER RIGHT NOW IS THIS RENAISSANCE,
  • 16:07 THIS RESTORATION OF THE PHYSICAL STATE OF ISRAEL
  • 16:11 AND THIS INCREDIBLE STORY OF RE-BIRTH OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS BELIEVERS IN OUR OWN MESSIAH.
  • 16:18 AND YOU CAN SEE THAT AS YOU'VE BEEN KNIT INTO THIS JOURNEY,
  • 16:22 THIS 4,000 YEAR JOURNEY
  • 16:25 THAT WHAT'S HAPPENING TODAY IS THAT MANY OF US,
  • 16:28 ESPECIALLY MANY OF US THAT GREW UP AS THE WOODSTOCK GENERATION.
  • 16:32 WE WERE WANDERING AND LOOKING AROUND FOR DIFFERENT THINGS
  • 16:35 AND GETTING INTO ALL KINDS OF TROUBLE.
  • 16:38 FOR MYSELF I GREW UP IN A KOSHER HOME,
  • 16:40 WENT TO HEBREW SCHOOL 3 DAYS A WEEK
  • 16:42 AND WAS BAR MITZVAHED AT AGE 13;
  • 16:45 SHORTLY THEREAFTER SMOKED MY FIRST JOINT
  • 16:47 AND WOKE UP 20 YEARS LATER
  • 16:49 WHEN I MET A YOUNG WOMAN WHO TOLD ME THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH OF THE JEWS.
  • 16:53 I THOUGHT SHE WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL I EVER MET
  • 16:56 BUT IT WAS THE MOST RIDICULOUS STORY I'D EVER HEARD.
  • 16:59 VERY CUTE CATHOLIC...
  • 17:01 I WAS A HINDU BY THEN.
  • 17:03 I WAS A MEDITATING BUDDHIST-HINDU.
  • 17:05 WE CALLED OURSELVES "BUJEWS"..."BUDDHIST JEWS"
  • 17:07 AND THERE ARE MANY OF US THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.
  • 17:10 BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO ME
  • 17:11 IS ALSO WHAT'S HAPPENED TO THE MANY OF THE JEWISH BELIEVERS
  • 17:13 YOU'RE MEETING IN THE LAND NOW
  • 17:15 WHERE THEY HAVE THIS PIONEERING SPIRIT THAT BROUGHT THEM HERE.
  • 17:19 AND JUST AS HERZL AND THE EARLY PIONEERS CAME HERE TO PIONEER THE LAND
  • 17:24 WHAT'S HAPPENING IS THAT GOD IS RAISING UP A JEWISH REMNANT TO PIONEER THE SPIRIT.
  • 17:29 AND IT'S PREPARATION FOR THE RETURN OF THE LORD.
  • 17:33 WE KNOW THE HOUR IS NEAR
  • 17:35 BECAUSE OF THIS REBORN REMNANT OF THE JEWISH BELIEVERS.
  • 17:38 CARDINAL RATZINGER BEFORE HE BECAME THE POPE
  • 17:41 MET WITH JEWISH BELIEVERS AND GENTILE BELIEVERS TOGETHER
  • 17:45 AND WHEN THE JEWISH BELIEVERS GAVE HIM THEIR TESTIMONY HE WEPT
  • 17:49 AND HE SAID, "IF YOU ARE WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE"
  • 17:51 "THEN JESUS IS COMING SOON"...
  • 17:54 BECAUSE WE'RE A SIGN.
  • 17:56 NOW FOR MYSELF AND MY WIFE
  • 17:57 WE GATHER PEOPLE IN ISRAEL TO POINT YOU TO THE RE-BIRTH OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL
  • 18:02 TO STAND WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 18:04 AND ABOVE ALL WE BELIEVE IT'S OUR MANDATE TO DO GOOD TO ALL MEN
  • 18:08 ESPECIALLY THOSE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH.
  • 18:11 THAT'S WHY WE BRING YOU TO BE IN CONTACT WITH THE BELIEVERS
  • 18:14 BECAUSE THAT REMNANT, THAT FAITHFUL REMNANT THAT'S IN THE LAND
  • 18:18 IS THE FIRST FRUITS OF REDEMPTION
  • 18:20 THAT'S PREPARING THIS WHOLE NATION FOR THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE MESSIAH.
  • 18:27 AND SO THIS FIRST FRUITS REMNANT OF THE JEWISH BELIEVERS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE KINGDOM.
  • 18:33 AND WE'RE IN A TIME OF TRANSITION
  • 18:35 WHERE WE'RE LOOKING TOWARDS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 18:38 AND WHEN GOD CHASTISES AND SENDS US AWAY, HE TAKES AWAY THINGS...
  • 18:43 THERE'S DIMINISHING LAND, DIMINISHING POWER, DIMINISHING STRENGTH.
  • 18:47 WHEN HE RESTORES HE DOES THE SAME THING IN THE OTHER DIRECTION.
  • 18:51 GOD HAS RESTORED THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THE LAND.
  • 18:53 HE'S RESTORED THE LAND, THE TERRITORY.
  • 18:56 HE'S CONTINUING TO DO THAT
  • 18:58 AND IT'S A DOWN PAYMENT ON THAT WHICH IS COMING
  • 19:00 WHICH IS WHEN YESHUA HA MASHIACH SETS HIS FOOT DOWN ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 19:05 SPLITS THE MOUNT OF OLIVES...
  • 19:07 FRESH WATER FLOWS FROM THE MOUNT OF OLIVES TO THE DEAD SEA MAKING IT ALIVE
  • 19:12 AND HE BEGINS TO SET UP A MILLENNIAL REIGN OF 1,000 YEARS IN JERUSALEM.
  • 19:19 HE'S GOING TO HAVE HIS WAY ON THIS EARTH.
  • 19:23 AND SO WE'RE IN A TIME OF A SIGN AND A WONDER.
  • 19:26 THIS IS GOOD NEWS.
  • 19:28 THERE IS A STREAM NOW COMING IN ORTHODOXY IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 19:33 WHERE THEY'RE BELIEVING FOR REDEMPTION THAT IS PARALLEL TO WHAT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE.
  • 19:38 WE HAVE OUR DISPUTES ABOUT THE PERSON OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 19:42 WE HAVE OUR DISPUTES ABOUT SOME PHILOSOPHICAL AND THEOLOGICAL POINTS.
  • 19:46 BUT BOTH THIS STREAM OF JEWISH ORTHODOX AND CHRISTIANS
  • 19:51 ARE BELIEVING FOR A REDEMPTION THAT IS SO POWERFUL
  • 19:54 THAT IT CAUSES A RENOVATION OR A BEGINNING OR A NEW TIME FOR ALL OF US.
  • 20:00 NOW FOR ME IT'S A THRILL TO HAVE YOU HERE.
  • 20:03 EVERY JEWISH PERSON HAS A GIVEN NAME, A HEBREW NAME,
  • 20:06 AND THEN AN ENGLISH OR A CULTURAL NAME.
  • 20:10 RABBI SHAUL...RAV SHAUL BECAME PAUL
  • 20:13 BUT HIS NAME WAS ALWAYS SAUL.
  • 20:14 HE WAS SAUL IN HIS FAMILY AND PAUL IN THE GREEK CULTURE...IN THE ROMAN CULTURE.
  • 20:19 MY NAME IS MYLES IN NEW YORK CITY AND CALIFORNIA
  • 20:22 BUT MY GIVEN NAME IS MORDECAI.
  • 20:24 AND THAT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE MORDECAI'S JOB IS TO RAISE ESTHER
  • 20:29 AND TO TELL ESTHER YOU'VE BEEN BROUGHT INTO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
  • 20:35 AND GOD HAS BROUGHT YOU TO THE KINGDOM TO STAND WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 20:38 TO RECOGNIZE WHERE YOU COME FROM,
  • 20:40 THAT YOU'RE ROOTS ARE IN ISRAEL,
  • 20:42 THEY'RE IN THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 20:44 THEY'RE IN THE HEBREW LANGUAGE.
  • 20:45 THOSE ARE YOUR ROOTS.
  • 20:47 DON'T FORSAKE THAT.
  • 20:48 AND THEN TO STAND AS THE BEAUTIFUL BRIDE THAT YOU ARE
  • 20:51 AND LOOK AHEAD TO THE COMING OF YOUR BRIDEGROOM.
  • 20:54 AMEN?
  • 20:56 (PEOPLE) AMEN
  • 20:59 (Katharine speaking) LEAVING CAPERNAUM ON THE NORTHERN SHORE OF THE SEA GALILEE
  • 21:02 WE JOURNEY SOUTHWARD TO THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 21:05 PILGRIMS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD FLOCK TO THIS SITE
  • 21:08 TO BE BAPTIZED IN THE SAME WATERS IN WHICH JESUS, YESHUA WAS BAPTIZED.
  • 21:12 BEFORE BAPTISM WE LIKE TO TAKE TIME TO WORSHIP THE LORD IN SONG
  • 21:16 AND THEN TO REFLECT ON THE SPECIAL STEP OF OBEDIENCE.
  • 21:23 THIS PROBABLY DOESN'T COME AS A SURPRISE FOR YOU
  • 21:26 TO KNOW THAT BAPTISM IS AN ANCIENT JEWISH RITUAL...
  • 21:31 CEREMONY...MEETING PLACE WITH THE LORD.
  • 21:34 IN FACT, IT GOES BACK 1,000 YEARS BEFORE THE TIME OF CHRIST
  • 21:38 AND IT'S TYPICALLY DONE IN THE SELF-IMMERSION.
  • 21:41 THAT'S WHY THE PICTURES WE HAVE OF JOCHANAN...OF JOHN...
  • 21:43 HE'S ON THE SHORE AND THE PEOPLE GO IN AND THEY DUNK THEMSELVES AND COME BACK OUT.
  • 21:48 BUT WE'VE DEVELOPED A VERY BEAUTIFUL TRADITION OF HAVING ANOTHER BELIEVER BAPTIZE US
  • 21:54 IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 21:58 AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE WHEN JOHN IMPLEMENTED THIS NEW FORM OF BAPTISM...
  • 22:04 IN HEBREW IT'S "MIKVAH".
  • 22:06 THE "MIKVA'OT" ARE THE RITUAL BAPTISMALS.
  • 22:09 WE'LL SEE THEM WHEN WE GET TO JERUSALEM.
  • 22:11 THEY'RE ALL OVER AROUND THE TEMPLE AREA.
  • 22:14 THAT'S HOW 3,000 CAN GET BAPTIZED WHEN PETER PREACHED.
  • 22:17 IT COULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED IN THE UPPER ROOM.
  • 22:19 IT HAD TO BE ON THE SOUTHERN STEPS OR THEREABOUTS
  • 22:21 BECAUSE THERE ARE MIKVA'OT EVERYWHERE.
  • 22:24 AND THERE NEEDS TO BE RUNNING WATER,
  • 22:25 SOME KIND OF MOVING WATER, "LIVING WATER" IT'S CALLED.
  • 22:28 AND THE FIRST TIME THAT THE NAME CHANGE CAME
  • 22:33 AND THE BAPTISM IN THE NAME OF YESHUA, IN THE NAME OF JESUS BECAME IMPLEMENTED
  • 22:38 BECAUSE HE CHANGED EVERYTHING
  • 22:41 AND HE CHANGED EVERYTHING FOR US.
  • 22:44 AND HERE'S THE WONDERFUL PICTURE OF THE REASON WHY IT'S SO GREAT THAT WE BAPTIZE N THE WATERS
  • 22:48 AND WE ARE GOING TO BAPTIZE YOU IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 22:51 BECAUSE WHEN YESHUA WAS BAPTIZED BY JOHN AND HE TRIED TO RESIST THAT...
  • 22:55 YOU KNOW JOHN TRIED TO RESIST IT...
  • 22:57 AND HE SAID I NEED TO BE BAPTIZED BY YOU.
  • 22:59 HE KNEW THAT SOMEONE MUCH GREATER WAS COMING
  • 23:02 AND THAT WAS WELL KNOWN
  • 23:04 BUT YESHUA INSISTED IN ORDER TO SET THE PATTERN FOR US
  • 23:08 BUT ALSO SO THAT GOD THE FATHER COULD REVEAL THE REALITY OF THE TRINITY FOR US.
  • 23:13 AND FOREVER IT'S IN THE WORD.
  • 23:14 WE SEE IT HERE IN LUKE CHAPTER 3.
  • 23:17 WHILE ALL THE PEOPLE WERE BEING IMMERSED YESHUA ALSO WAS IMMERSED.
  • 23:21 AND WHILE HE WAS PRAYING HEAVEN OPENED
  • 23:23 AND THE HOLY SPIRIT DESCENDED UPON HIM IN BODILY FORM LIKE A DOVE
  • 23:27 AND A VOICE CAME OUT OF HEAVEN...
  • 23:29 "YOU ARE MY BELOVED SON AND IN YOU I AM WELL PLEASED."
  • 23:33 AND SO WE HAVE THE FATHER SPEAKING FROM HEAVEN.
  • 23:37 WE HAVE THE SON STANDING IN THE WATER.
  • 23:40 AND THE HOLY SPIRIT LIKE A DOVE DESCENDING UPON HIM...
  • 23:43 ALL THREE PERSONS OF THE GODHEAD IN ONE SCENE
  • 23:47 FOREVER SETTLING FOR US THAT GOD IS IN THREE PERSONS
  • 23:51 AND THAT'S THE HEBREW MEANING OF THE WORD "ECHAD".
  • 23:53 THE "YACHID" IS ONE; SINGULAR...
  • 23:55 "ECHAD" IS A COMPOUND UNITY ONE.
  • 23:58 AND THE CENTRAL PRAYER OF HEBREW LIFE SPEAKS OF GOD IN A COMPOUND UNITY...ECHAD...
  • 24:05 AND WE KNOW IT AS "THREE IN ONE"...
  • 24:07 WE KNOW THAT GOD IS THREE IN ONE.
  • 24:09 SO TODAY WHEN YOU GO INTO THE WATER
  • 24:11 I WANT YOU TO HOLD IN YOUR HEARTS WHATEVER PRAYER YOU HAVE BEFORE GOD
  • 24:16 ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR LIFE...
  • 24:18 WHATEVER YOUR HOPES ARE FOR THE FUTURE...
  • 24:20 FOR YOUR FAMILY, FOR YOUR CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN...
  • 24:22 FOR WHOEVER IS IN YOUR LIFE...
  • 24:24 FOR YOU PERSONALLY...GOD WANTS TO MEET WITH YOU HERE TODAY.
  • 24:28 HE INTENDS TO MEET WITH YOU.
  • 24:30 IN FACT, I SAY THIS OFTEN...
  • 24:32 I BELIEVE THAT WHEN YOU COME OUT OF THE WATER TODAY
  • 24:34 IN YOUR HEART I WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO HEAR THE FATHER SAY,
  • 24:38 THIS IS MY BELOVED SON...
  • 24:40 THIS IS MY BELOVED DAUGHTER
  • 24:43 WITH WHOM I'M WELL PLEASED.
  • 24:45 AMEN?
  • 25:17 THE WHOLE AREA WHERE JESUS MINISTERED
  • 25:19 STILL HAS A DEPOSIT OF HIS LIFE AND HIS POWER.
  • 25:23 YOU CAN FEEL IT.
  • 25:24 WHEN WE SEE THESE BAPTISMS PEOPLE ARE SO BLESSED TO BE IN THIS AREA,

  • 25:35 WE REALLY SEE THEM COME ALIVE DON'T WE?
