Episode: “Holy Places, Holy Moments”
We walk from the Mount of Olives to the Garden of Gethsemane where our pilgrims meditate on the sacrifice of Yeshua. In the Upper Room, we learn the site’s history and then worship the Lord together.
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.

Caption transcript for Journey of Restoration: “Holy Places, Holy Moments” (6/10)

  • 00:05 I LOVE ISRAEL,
  • 00:06 I LOVE THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:08 IT'S TOTALLY SO...
  • 00:09 IT'S INDESCRIBABLE.
  • 00:11 IT FEELS LIKE HOME...
  • 00:12 IT JUST FEELS LIKE HOME.
  • 00:14 WELCOME TO JERUSALEM...
  • 00:15 IT JUST TOOK MY BREATH AWAY.
  • 00:17 IT JUST SHOWS THE FINGER PRINT OF GOD EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:19 TO REALIZE HOW SPECIAL THIS CITY AND THE PEOPLE WERE TO THE LORD...
  • 00:24 IT'S GOD'S CHOSEN LAND AND JESUS WALKED ON IT.
  • 00:28 I THINK THERE'S A RESTORATION AS PASTOR MYLES TALKED ABOUT.
  • 00:32 HOW GOD IS REALLY GATHERING THE JEWS.
  • 00:36 THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST WE'VE BEEN GRAFTED-IN
  • 00:39 AND NOW THIS IS OUR CITY ALSO.
  • 00:53 SHALOM AND WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM.
  • 00:55 I'M MYLES WEISS
  • 00:56 AND I'M KATHARINE WEISS.
  • 00:57 AND WE ARE CONTINUING OUR STORY THE JOURNEY OF RESTORATION.
  • 01:01 THIS IS REALLY ABOUT GOD'S HEART FOR ISRAEL, FOR THE LAND, FOR THE PEOPLE,
  • 01:05 FOR THOSE THAT WOULD UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE HIS HEADQUARTERS IN THE MILLENNIUM
  • 01:10 AND SO IT'S A DREAM COME TRUE WE BRING ISRAEL TO YOU.
  • 01:13 WHAT A JOY.
  • 01:14 AND GOD'S DREAM HAS COME TRUE MYLES
  • 01:16 BECAUSE HE HAS FULFILLED HIS WORD THAT HE WOULD BRING THEM UP OUT OF THE GRAVE,
  • 01:20 HE WOULD RESTORE LIFE INTO THEM, BREATH INTO THEM, SINEW...
  • 01:23 AND MAKE THEM A PEOPLE AND NEVER AGAIN WOULD HE UPROOT THEM...
  • 01:28 NEVER AGAIN NOT ONLY TO THEIR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN
  • 01:31 HE HAS AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 01:34 AND IT'S OUR PLEASURE AND JOY TO STAND WITH GOD AND HIS PLAN FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 01:38 PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES BUT WE ARE LIVING IN THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES.
  • 01:45 WE ARE SEEING THE SIGNS COME ALIVE AS WE'RE SEEING ISRAEL COME TO BACK TO LIFE
  • 01:50 AND THE MESSIANIC REMNANT IN ISRAEL IS THE FIRST FRUITS OF OUR REDEMPTION.
  • 01:55 WE'RE SEEING ORTHODOX JEWS IN THE SAMARIA AND JUDEA
  • 02:00 IN THE HEARTLAND OF ISRAEL LOOKING FOR REDEMPTION.
  • 02:02 WE SEE CHRISTIANS COMING LOOKING FOR REDEMPTION.
  • 02:05 IT'S JUST EXCITING AS WE'RE MOVING TOWARDS THE PROPHETIC FULFILLMENT
  • 02:08 OF EVERYTHING THAT'S WRITTEN IN THE WORD.
  • 02:10 I WANT TO BRING YOU SCRIPTURE.
  • 02:12 I LOVE THIS.THIS IS MY OLDER SON'S FAVORITE VERSE THESE DAYS.
  • 02:34 AND WE ARE LISTENING FOR THE SOUND OF OUR PEOPLE
  • 02:37 RECOGNIZING THE NAME THAT IS ABOVE EVERY NAME.
  • 02:41 ABSOLUTELY AND MORE PEOPLE ARE BEING SAVED IN JERUSALEM TODAY THAN IN THE BOOK OF ACTS.
  • 02:45 YOU'RE RIGHT
  • 02:46 SO WE ARE LIVING IN THE TIME OF REVIVAL.
  • 02:48 DON'T GET BOGGED DOWN WITH...IT'S ALL THE WARS THAT ARE HAPPENING
  • 02:54 BUT WE HAVE TO LOOK TO THE PROMISES AND BELIEVE THE PROMISES, STAND ON THOSE
  • 02:58 AND OUR FAITH WILL NOT GROW WEARY BUT WE'LL BE STRENGTHENED BY THE LORD.
  • 03:03 RIGHT AND WE ARE CONTINUING OUR JOURNEY OF RESTORATION.
  • 03:06 WE ARE ABOUT HALF WAY THROUGH OUR JOURNEY.
  • 03:09 WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE WITH THE HEART OF THE MATTER IN JERUSALEM
  • 03:12 AND SO LET'S GO TO JESUS' HEADQUARTERS IN JERUSALEM, THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 03:16 AND PICK UP OUR STORY THERE.
  • 03:21 (Katharine Weiss speaking) I'M SO BLESSED EVERY TIME I VISIT ISRAEL.
  • 03:24 AFTER 20 TRIPS I STILL MANAGE TO FIND THINGS I'VE NEVER DONE BEFORE.
  • 03:29 I'D NEVER RIDDEN A CAMEL BEFORE. CAN YOU TELL?
  • 03:32 AFTER THE GROUP HAD SOME TIME TO BEHOLD THE MAGNIFICENT TEMPLE MOUNT IN THE CITY OF GOLD
  • 03:38 WE WALKED DOWN THE ROAD WHICH LED TO THE SITE
  • 03:41 WHERE ACCORDING TO TRADITION JESUS WEPT OVER JERUSALEM.
  • 03:47 AND SO WE ALL WENT HALFWAY DOWN
  • 03:50 AND SO WE ARE STILL ON THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 03:52 WE ARE STILL ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
  • 03:54 AND SOON WE'LL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THE ROAD
  • 03:57 ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE VALLEY AND TO THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE.
  • 04:01 SO THE BASE OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES SHOULD BE THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE.
  • 04:06 RIGHT HERE OR NEXT TO US THERE IS A CHAPEL NAMED "DOMINUS FLAVIT"
  • 04:14 AND IT MEANS "THE LORD WEPT"....
  • 04:17 DOMINUS FLAVIT...THE LORD WEPT.
  • 04:19 THE DOME WAS DESIGNED AS A TEARDROP
  • 04:22 TO REMIND US THE PLACE, THE AREA WHERE JESUS STOOD AND WEPT OVER THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 04:29 EVEN ONE STONE WON'T BE LEFT UPON THE OTHER HE SAID.
  • 04:32 70 A.D. DESTRUCTION CAME. JERUSALEM WAS LEFT IN RUINS.
  • 04:39 AND USUALLY WHEN YOU ARE HERE...
  • 04:42 AND SO YOU ARE LOOKING WEST AND YOU SEE THE CITY AND PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THE OTHER SIDE
  • 04:50 BUT DO NOT FORGET WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 04:53 YOU ARE IN A VERY SPECIAL PLACE... MOUNT OF OLIVES...
  • 04:56 BECAUSE WHEN THE LORD WILL COME BACK HE WILL SET HIS FOOT RIGHT HERE ON THIS MOUNTAIN.
  • 05:02 AND ONCE AGAIN IT WON'T BE SOMEWHERE IN NEW YORK CITY, PARIS OR LONDON.
  • 05:08 IT'S GOING TO BE THE MOUNT OF OLIVES RIGHT HERE.
  • 05:13 AND THE BIBLE IS VERY SPECIFIC ABOUT THAT.
  • 05:17 ZECHARIAH 14 IT IS WRITTEN
  • 05:41 WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE THAT WILL TAKE PLACE RIGHT HERE.
  • 05:44 AND INDEED YOU SHOULD ALL KNOW THAT THERE IS A FAULT UNDER THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 05:49 YEARS AGO WHEN THEY WANTED TO BUILD ANOTHER HOTEL ON THE MOUNTAIN THEY DISCOVERED IT
  • 05:53 AND THEY DECIDED IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A GOOD IDEA TO BUILD A NEW HOTEL HERE
  • 05:58 BECAUSE OF THE FAULT LINE.
  • 06:00 WE ALL KNOW THAT JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED OUTSIDE THE CITY WALL ON THE NORTHERN SIDE.
  • 06:10 HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD THREE DAYS LATER.
  • 06:15 AND HE WAS STILL ON EARTH.
  • 06:19 PEOPLE SAW HIM IN THREE DIFFERENT PLACES...
  • 06:22 JERUSALEM ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS
  • 06:24 AND THEN THE LAST TIME HE REVEALED HIMSELF HERE BY THE SEA OF GALILEE...SEA OF TIBERIUS.
  • 06:29 BUT THEN WHEN HE'LL RETURN HE WILL SET HIS FOOT HERE.
  • 06:33 BUT WHEN HE LEFT THE EARTH AND WHEN HE WAS ASCENDED TO HEAVEN
  • 06:36 IT WAS FROM THIS MOUNTAIN... MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 06:40 ACTS CHAPTER 1 HE WAS TAKEN UP.
  • 06:42 HE WENT UP FROM THE MOUNTAIN UP TO HEAVEN.
  • 06:45 AND HE WILL COME BACK TO THE SAME PLACE.
  • 06:48 AND YOU WILL REMEMBER WHAT IS WRITTEN IN ACTS 1,
  • 07:04 SO IT AGAIN POINTS OUT THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 07:08 BEING FAMILIAR WITH THE JEWISH CHRISTIAN BELIEF
  • 07:13 THAT THE MESSIAH REDEEMER WILL SET HIS FOOT HERE ON THE MOUNTAIN
  • 07:18 SULEIMAN THE GREAT DURING THE 16TH CENTURY
  • 07:23 THOUGHT IF HE WILL CLOSE THE GATES...THE ISRAEL GATES...
  • 07:28 IT WILL KEEP THE LORD OUT SO HE WON'T BE ABLE TO INTO THE CITY.
  • 07:33 IT IS A TRUE STORY.
  • 07:36 HOW TO BELIEVE IN IT...
  • 07:37 BUT YEAH SULEIMAN THE GREAT SEALED THE GATE...SHUT THE GATE
  • 07:41 FOR THAT REASON, TO STOP THE LORD FROM COMING INTO THE CITY.
  • 07:47 SO THE GATE YOU ARE LOOKING AT...
  • 07:48 THE DOUBLE ARCH USED TO BE AN OPEN GATE
  • 07:51 BUT IT WAS SHUT BY SULEIMAN.
  • 07:54 REMEMBER WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE ORIGINAL GATE,
  • 07:56 THE GOLDEN GATE THAT ONCE STOOD THERE
  • 07:58 BECAUSE IT WAS DESTROYED BY THE ROMANS.
  • 08:01 BUT THIS GATE GOES BACK TO THE 2ND CENTURY WHEN THE CITY WAS RE-ESTABLISHED BY THE ROMANS
  • 08:05 AND CENTURIES LATER WAS SHUT BY SULEIMAN.
  • 08:10 YOU CAN SEE THAT ALL ALONG THE EASTERN WALL OF THE CITY THERE IS A GRAVEYARD.
  • 08:15 THERE'S ANOTHER CEMETERY BUT THAT'S A MUSLIM CEMETERY NOT JEWISH CEMETERY
  • 08:19 AND FOR THE SAME REASON BECAUSE A CEMETERY GRAVEYARD
  • 08:23 IT IS CONSIDERED AS AN UNCLEAN PLACE
  • 08:25 TO KEEP THE LORD FROM GETTING NEAR.
  • 08:30 BUT EVEN MORE AMAZING THAN THAT
  • 08:32 WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT IT IS A FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY.
  • 08:38 EZEKIEL 44 AND IT SAYING,
  • 09:09 AMAZING...WE ARE LOOKING AT THE FULFILLMENT OF THIS PROPHECY.
  • 09:16 SO ALL PROPHECIES ARE POINTING TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU ARE,
  • 09:20 THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, RIGHT HERE.
  • 09:25 (Katherine Weiss speaking) WALKING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF YESHUA
  • 09:27 WE DESCEND FURTHER DOWN THE MOUNT OF OLIVES TO THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE
  • 09:31 WHERE THE GOOD SHEPHERD AGONIZED OVER HIS BELOVED SHEEP.
  • 09:37 YOU'VE HEARD ALREADY THAT THE VERY CROWN OF THORNS WAS LIKELY MADE FROM ACACIA WOOD,
  • 09:43 THE SAME WOOD THAT'S ON THE MERCY SEAT.
  • 09:46 THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD GO INTO THE TABERNACLE AND SPRINKLE BLOOD ON THE MERCY SEAT
  • 09:50 AND THAT LOOKED FORWARD TO THE PRICE THAT WOULD ULTIMATELY BE PAID
  • 09:55 BY THE PRECIOUS, SINLESS LAMB OF GOD.
  • 09:59 IT WAS HERE THAT HE ASKED THE QUESTION, CAN THIS CUP PASS FROM ME.
  • 10:04 NO ONE TOOK THE LIFE OF JESUS.
  • 10:07 I GREW UP HEARING JEWS ARE CHRIST KILLERS.
  • 10:10 YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD THAT.
  • 10:12 THE CENTURIES HAVE BORN WITNESS TO THAT REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY
  • 10:15 AND THE BLAME BEING PUT ON MY PEOPLE.
  • 10:18 THE FACT IS THAT NO ONE TOOK HIS LIFE.
  • 10:21 HE LAID DOWN HIS LIFE VOLUNTARILY FOR YOU AND FOR ME.
  • 10:26 HE CAME FROM HEAVEN, LIVED A SINLESS LIFE
  • 10:29 AND THEN LAID HIS LIFE DOWN SO THAT YOU AND I COULD HAVE ETERNAL LIFE WITH HIM.
  • 10:35 THIS IS THE PLACE OF THE OIL PRESS.
  • 10:37 AND WE LEARNED ON THIS TRIP THAT THE PRESSINGS...
  • 10:40 THE FIRST PRESS IS THE PUREST...
  • 10:43 THE FIRST PRESS IS HOLY UNTO THE LORD.
  • 10:46 THE FIRST PRESS IS THE VIRGIN PRESS.
  • 10:49 THE FIRST PRESS IS THE ONE THAT IS SO PRECIOUS
  • 10:52 AND HE IS THE FIRST FRUITS OF MANY BRETHREN.
  • 10:56 HIS LIFE POURED OUT, HIS LIFE PRESSED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR ME IS THE FIRST PRESSING FROM GOD
  • 11:04 AND RECEIVED AS A SACRIFICE THAT WAS ACCEPTABLE TO GOD.
  • 11:09 THE RANSOM WAS PAID AND NOW THE REST OF US ARE FREE TO FOLLOW IF WE PUT OUR TRUST IN HIM
  • 11:15 BECAUSE THAT FIRST PRICE WAS PAID, THE ONLY PRICE; WAS PAID BY YESHUA HIMSELF.
  • 11:21 NOW THE OLIVE TREE ITSELF IS AN INCREDIBLE STORY.
  • 11:25 YOU KNOW YOU SAW THE ANCIENT ONES ACROSS THE WAY THERE.
  • 11:29 YOU SEE THAT WHEN THEY GROW OLDER THEY GET KIND OF HOLLOW ON THE INSIDE
  • 11:33 AND THE SHOOTS COME UP FROM BELOW AND WRAP THEMSELVES AROUND AND SUPPORT THE TREE.
  • 11:39 THE OLIVE TREE IS A PICTURE OF ISRAEL.
  • 11:42 THE SHOOTS, THEY'RE CALLED "NOTZRIM" IN THE PLURAL.
  • 11:46 IT'S WHERE WE GET THE WORD NETZER.IT MEANS "THE SHOOT",
  • 11:50 "NETZER", "NAZARETH", "NAZARENE".
  • 11:52 YOU ARE THE NOTZRIM.
  • 11:55 YOU ARE THE SHOOTS THAT HAVE GROWN UP AROUND THE OLD OLIVE TREE OF ISRAEL
  • 12:01 TO WRAP YOURSELVES AROUND THE OLD OLIVE TREE
  • 12:04 AND BECOME A BLESSING THAT HELPS TO HOLD UP THE OLD TREE
  • 12:08 IN PREPARATION FOR THE STORMS THAT ARE COMING.
  • 12:12 THE NOTZRIM...IT'S ALSO THE WORD USED FOR "WATCHMAN".
  • 12:16 SO NOT ONLY ARE THE SHOOTS THE CHRISTIANS,
  • 12:19 THOSE THAT ARE GROWING UP IN LOVE WITH ISRAEL AND IN LOVE WITH THE THINGS OF GOD,
  • 12:23 BUT ALSO YOU ARE THE WATCHMEN ON THE WALL FOR THE SAKE OF ISRAEL
  • 12:27 AND FOR THE SAKE OF THE BELIEVERS AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 12:30 SO AS THE NOTZRIM MANY YEARS AGO
  • 12:34 IF YOU WERE WALKING IN DOWNTOWN JERUSALEM YOU WOULD HEAR THE JEWISH PEOPLE SAY,
  • 12:37 AH, THE NOTZRIM ARE HERE... THE CHRISTIANS ARE HERE.
  • 12:41 BUT NOW THE TUNE IS CHANGING AND NOW WE'RE STARTING TO HEAR,
  • 12:45 AH, THE NOTZRIM ARE HERE...
  • 12:48 THOSE THAT LOVE US ARE HERE...
  • 12:50 THOSE THAT ARE COME TO BLESS ARE HERE...
  • 12:52 THOSE THAT KNOW TO STAND WITH US ARE HERE.
  • 12:55 AND SO HERE YOU ARE IN A PLACE WHERE THE PRICE WAS PAID
  • 12:59 AS THE NOTZRIM SUPPORTING THE OLD TREE...
  • 13:02 BY THE WAY THE GREATEST FRUIT THAT YOU CAN GET FROM AN OLIVE TREE
  • 13:07 IS WHEN YOU GRAFT IN A WILD OLIVE INTO THE NATURAL OLIVE.
  • 13:12 DO YOU REMEMBER PAUL'S TEACHING THAT WE ARE THE NATURAL TREE... THE BRANCHES,
  • 13:17 AND YOU ARE THE WILD OLIVES?
  • 13:20 WELL, THE WAY THAT YOU GET THE BEST FRUIT FROM AN OLIVE
  • 13:23 IS TO MAKE THE MARK OF A CROSS AND GRAFT-IN THE WILD OLIVE.
  • 13:28 AND WHEN THE WILD OLIVE IS GRAFTED-IN TO THE OLD TREE THE BEST FRUIT EVER COMES
  • 13:34 AND THAT'S WHO YOU ARE AND THAT'S WHAT WE BECOME TOGETHER.
  • 13:37 AND WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THIS TIME IS BRINGING US BACK TO THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID,
  • 13:42 THE BLOOD THAT WAS SHED
  • 13:44 AND ALLOWING US TO PARTICIPATE WITH HIM AS WE LOOK FOR HIS SOON COMING.AMEN?
  • 13:52 (Katharine Weiss speaking) AS OUR GROUP GATHERED FOR PRAYER
  • 13:54 THERE WAS LITTLE QUESTION THAT AFTER 2,000 YEARS
  • 13:57 YOU COULD STILL SENSE THE LORD'S PRESENCE IN THIS QUIET LITTLE GROVE OF OLIVE TREES.
  • 14:03 JUST KNOWING THAT HE SUFFERED THE WAY HE SUFFERED
  • 14:05 AND EVEN HIS CLOSEST PEOPLE WITH HIM FELL ASLEEP IN THE PROCESS OF THAT.
  • 14:10 AND THE AGONY OF THAT IS LIKE, OH...YOU KNOW.
  • 14:14 SO THIS IS A VERY PEACEFUL PLACE
  • 14:19 BUT IT'S ONLY PEACEFUL BECAUSE HE CAME HERE AND MADE IT PEACEFUL.
  • 14:24 IT'S SO AWESOME TO BE HERE WHERE JESUS WAS,
  • 14:30 WHERE HE AGONIZED AND KNEW WHAT WAS COMING
  • 14:36 AND YET HE WENT ON AHEAD AND DIED ON THE CROSS FOR US.

  • 16:43 AND YUVAL DID A GREAT TIME WITH ME SPEAKINGABOUT THE PRESSINGS... THE OLIVES.
  • 16:48 THE OLIVES ARE PRESSED 3 TIMES.
  • 16:50 HE'LL TEACH IT.
  • 16:51 BUT YOU REMINDED ME ABOUT THE 3'S OF GOD.
  • 16:54 ABSOLUTELY, THE 3'S OF GOD ARE VERY SIGNIFICANT THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURE
  • 16:58 AND IT'S IN REVELATIONS 1:4.
  • 17:00 WHO WAS AND IS AND IS TO COME.
  • 17:03 GOD...HE CONFIRMS HIS WORD AND HE'S SPEAKING AGAIN TO US TODAY
  • 17:09 ABOUT THAT THERE'S A SACRED OIL THAT ONLY HE CAN GIVE US AND IT'S HIS ANOINTING OIL.
  • 17:14 SO LET'S GO TO THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE WHERE THE SCRIPTURE WILL COME ALIVE FOR US
  • 17:18 AS YUVAL AND I SPEAK TOGETHER FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN.
  • 17:27 THE HEBREW NAME FOR GETHSEMANE...
  • 17:29 IT IS "GAT SHAYMIN"
  • 17:32 AND IT MEANS "OLIVE PRESS"
  • 17:33 SIMPLY AS THAT.
  • 17:35 I NOTICED THAT THERE'S IN MATTHEW 26...
  • 17:37 THERE'S THE STORY OF YESHUA IN THE GARDEN WITH HIS DISCIPLES
  • 17:41 BUT JUST WITH THE OLIVE THERE'S 3 PRESSINGS
  • 17:44 YESHUA DEMONSTRATES 3 PRESSINGS ALSO.
  • 17:47 TELL US.
  • 17:48 EXACTLY RIGHT.
  • 17:49 THE OLIVES WHEN THEY WERE COLLECTED
  • 17:52 THEY WERE BROUGHT TO THE MILLSTONE
  • 17:54 AND THEY WERE CRUSHED.
  • 17:55 AND THEN THE CRUSHED OLIVES WERE COLLECTED IN BAGS
  • 17:59 AND THE BAGS WERE BROUGHT TO THE OLIVE PRESS
  • 18:02 AND THEY USED TO PRESS THE OLIVES 3 TIMES.
  • 18:06 AND THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY PRESSED THE OLIVES
  • 18:11 THE FINEST OIL CAME OUT DURING THE FIRST TIME THAT THE OIL WAS PRESSED.
  • 18:16 AND THAT WAS KNOWN AS THE PUREST OIL,
  • 18:18 THE VIRGIN THAT WAS USED FOR ANOINTING.
  • 18:21 FOR ANOINTING THE KINGS AND FOR USING THE TEMPLE...
  • 18:24 SACRED OIL...
  • 18:25 SACRED OIL
  • 18:26 OKAY, THAT'S ONE
  • 18:27 AND THEN AFTER ONE THE BAGS WERE PRESSED AGAIN
  • 18:31 AND SO IN ORDER TO INCREASE THE PRESSURE ON THE BAGS
  • 18:35 THEY USED TO ADD ANOTHER WEIGHT.
  • 18:38 AND THE SECOND OIL WAS USED FOR HEALING AND FOR LIGHT.
  • 18:43 SECOND PRESSING FOR HEALING AND FOR LIGHT
  • 18:46 AND THEN ANOTHER WAY IT WAS ADDED FOR THE FINAL PRESS TO INCREASE AGAIN THE PRESSURE
  • 18:52 AND ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS USED FOR MAKING SOAP FOR CLEANSING.
  • 18:56 SOAP FOR CLEANSING
  • 18:58 SO WE HAVE 3 PRESSINGS FOR ANOINTING OF THE KINGS AND ANOINTING FOR THE TEMPLE.
  • 19:04 WE HAVE FOR LIGHT AND HEALING
  • 19:07 AND THEN FINALLY FOR CLEANSING.WOW
  • 19:09 THAT'S AMAZING.
  • 19:10 JESUS HE WAS THE ANOINTED ONE;
  • 19:14 HE WAS THE MASHIACH, THE CHRIST.
  • 19:16 HE WAS THE ONE WHO BROUGHT LIFE AND HEALING TO THE PEOPLE.
  • 19:20 THE PEOPLE WHO HAD WALKED IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT.
  • 19:23 SACRED LIGHT
  • 19:24 AND THEN AS HE DIED ON THE CROSS HE WASHED AWAY OUR SINS.
  • 19:27 AMEN
  • 19:28 AND IN THE GARDEN HE COMES WITH THE DISCIPLES
  • 19:31 AND HE GOES AWAY AND COMES BACK TO THEM 3 TIMES.
  • 19:32 EXACTLY
  • 19:34 3 PRESSINGS
  • 19:35 3 COMINGS AND GOINGS OF YESHUA WITH THE DISCIPLES
  • 19:38 3 MEANINGS OF THE OIL BEING PRESSED OUT...WOW
  • 19:41 SO AT THE SAME PLACE WHERE THE OLIVES WERE PRESSED 3 TIMES
  • 19:45 OUR LORD WAS PRESSED 3 TIMES.
  • 19:47 HIS SWEAT WAS DROPS OF BLOOD IT SAYS IN THE BIBLE.
  • 19:50 HE WAS UNDER SUCH HEAVY AGONY AND GRIEF
  • 19:53 HE WAS PRESSED HIMSELF IN THE GARDEN 3 TIMES AS THE OLIVES WERE PRESSED 3 TIMES.
  • 19:58 THANK YOU FOR THAT
  • 19:59 KING OF KINGS, THE HEALER, THE GREAT PHYSICIAN
  • 20:01 AND THE ONE WHO WASHED AWAY OUR SINS
  • 20:04 WOW...HALLELUJAH
  • 20:07 (Katharine Weiss speaking) OUR BUS TAKES US AROUND THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 20:10 WHERE WE WILL BEGIN OUR SHORT WALK TOWARDS ANOTHER VERY SPECIAL SITE,
  • 20:14 AN UPPER ROOM.
  • 20:25 WE ALL WENT UP TO WHERE THE UPPER ROOM WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 20:29 BUT IF YOU LOOK CAREFULLY ALL AROUND YOU UP YOU SEE GOTHIC ARCHES.
  • 20:34 IT IS INDEED A MEDIEVAL TIME STRUCTURE OR GOTHIC STRUCTURE, A PART OF THE CRUSADER CHURCH.
  • 20:41 ONLY ONE OF THE OUTSIDE WALLS GOES BACK TO THE FIRST CENTURY
  • 20:46 WHAT IS LEFT OF THE BIG HOUSE THAT ONCE STOOD HERE.
  • 20:51 AND IN THE LOWER LEVEL IT IS THE TRADITIONAL SITE KNOWN AS DAVID'S TOMB
  • 20:56 EXACTLY AS PETER SAID, DAVID'S TOMB IS WITH US...
  • 21:00 IT'S AMONG US...
  • 21:02 IN THE BOOK OF ACTS CHAPTER 1.
  • 21:04 SO THE RELOCATION OF THE TOMB MIGHT BE HERE IN THE LOWER LEVEL.
  • 21:09 THIS PLACE WAS CONVERTED TO A MOSQUE BY THE MUSLIMS
  • 21:14 AND YOU CAN THE ARABIC INSCRIPTIONS HERE,
  • 21:18 THE NICHE IN THE WALL, THE MIKRA.
  • 21:22 AND THAT'S THE MAIN REASON WHY IT WAS ACTUALLY STAYED HERE AND SURVIVED
  • 21:29 AND IT WAS NOT DESTROYED THE STRUCTURE.
  • 21:32 IT WAS NOT BROUGHT DOWN BECAUSE IT WAS USED BY MUSLIMS AS A MOSQUE.
  • 21:36 NOW IT IS JUST AN HISTORICAL BUILDING WHERE PILGRIMS ARE COMING HERE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TO VISIT THE PLACE.
  • 21:43 AND IT'S VERY SYMBOLIC TO SEE HERE GROUPS FROM ALL OVER
  • 21:48 BECAUSE AS WE KNOW THE UPPER ROOM BECAME A GATHERING PLACE FOR THE DISCIPLES
  • 21:55 AND THE FEAST OF PENTECOST WHICH WAS 50 DAYS AFTER THE PASSOVER,
  • 22:02 10 DAYS AFTER THE ASCENSION OF CHRIST THE DISCIPLES WHO CAME TO THE ROOM
  • 22:06 AND THEN THE HOLY SPIRIT FELL UPON THEM
  • 22:09 AND THEY BEGAN TO SPEAK IN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES, DIFFERENT TONGUES.
  • 22:12 SO TO BE HERE WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
  • 22:15 AND TO SEE AGAIN GROUPS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD TALKING IN DIFFERENT TONGUES OR LANGUAGES,
  • 22:21 IT IS VERY, VERY SPECIAL.
  • 22:23 SO THEY ARE COMING NOW BACK TO THE PLACE WHERE IT ALL BEGAN.
  • 22:27 THE UPPER ROOM IS KNOWN AS THE BIRTHDAY OF THE CHURCH,
  • 22:30 THE DAY OF PENTECOST, THE BIRTHDAY OF THE CHURCH.
  • 22:33 SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A MAJOR EVENT THAT TOOK PLACE AGAIN SOMEWHERE HERE IN THIS LOCATION
  • 22:39 THE PASSOVER MEAL YESHUA HAD SHARED WITH THE DISCIPLES,
  • 22:43 THEN THE FEAST OF PENTECOST WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CAME DOWN.
  • 22:48 BUT BEFORE IT ALSO WAS THE PLACE WHERE JESUS REVEALED HIMSELF...
  • 22:53 ONE OF THE FIRST TIMES AFTER THE RESURRECTION IT WAS IN THE UPPER ROOM.
  • 22:58 (Myles Weiss speaking) SOME YEARS AGO OUR CAMERAS CAPTURED ANOTHER FORM OF WORSHIP
  • 23:02 HERE IN THE UPPER ROOM.
  • 23:03 YES, THESE ARE MUSLIMS TRYING THEIR BEST TO STAKE A CLAIM ON THIS HOLY GROUND.
  • 23:09 BUT TRY AS THEY MAY THIS SITE WILL ALWAYS BE REVERED BY CHRISTIANS AND JEWS ALIKE.
  • 23:18 YOU TIE THIS INTO THE JEWISHNESS OF THE GOSPEL,
  • 23:22 THE BLESSING THAT GOES BACK TO THE TIME OF AARON
  • 23:25 WAS WHEN GOD TOLD MOSES TO HAVE AARON TO STAND BEFORE THE PEOPLE AND BLESS THEM IN THIS WAY.
  • 23:30 AND EVERY TIME THIS IS DONE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION I WILL PUT MY NAME UPON THE PEOPLE.
  • 23:38 SO YOU RECEIVE THIS AS FROM THE LORD AND LET'S TAKE IT FROM THIS PLACE OKAY?
  • 23:44 (Myles singing in Hebrew)
  • 24:11 THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU
  • 24:14 THE LORD CAUSE HIS FACE TO SHINE UPON YOU, BE GRACIOUS UNTO YOU
  • 24:18 THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GRANT YOU HIS SHALOM
  • 24:23 THE HASHEM YESHUA HAMASHIACH AMEN
  • 24:29 I'M SO GLAD THEY GOT TO SHARE THE AARONIC BLESSING WITH YOU;
  • 24:32 THAT WE GOT TO PRAY UP IN THE UPPER ROOM.
  • 24:35 IT IS SO IMPACTING TO HAVE GOD'S WORD SUNG OVER US
  • 24:38 IN THE ANCIENT WAY THAT GOD ORDAINED IT TO BE SUNG
  • 24:41 AND MYLES IS EVEN A COHEN SO IT EVEN MAKES IT EVEN THAT MUCH MORE SPECIAL.
  • 24:45 MY UNCLES HELPED TO ESTABLISH A SYNAGOGUE IN NEW YORK
  • 24:49 AND BECAUSE THEY WERE COHANIM THEY WOULD ALWAYS BE CALLED UP TO THE BEMA...TO THE PLATFORM
  • 24:54 TO PRAY OVER THE TORAH BEFORE IT WAS OPENED AND WHEN IT WAS CLOSED
  • 24:58 AND WE CAN ALL SAY THAT TO ONE ANOTHER THESE DAYS CAN'T WE?
  • 25:02 YES
  • 25:04 THERE'S AN OFFICIAL WAY AND A LITURGICAL WAY TO DO IT
  • 25:07 BUT THERE'S ALSO A SENSE OF HIS WORD IS FOR ALL BELIEVERS NOW
  • 25:10 AND I LOVE THAT ABOUT THE LORD
  • 25:12 THAT HE'S OPENED A WAY FOR EVERYONE, FOR WHOSOEVER BELIEVES CAN BE JOINED WITH HIM.
  • 25:16 AND THAT HE'S RESTORED IT BACK TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE SPIRIT FOR WHICH IT WAS GIVEN...
  • 25:20 HIS LIFE AND HIS PRESENCE IN IT.
  • 25:22 AND YOU BROUGHT IT TO US IN THAT WAY.
  • 25:24 WELL YOU'RE VERY KIND BUT THE REALITY IS THAT THE POWER OF THE PRESENCE OF BEING IN JERUSALEM
  • 25:29 IS ALWAYS JUST SUCH AN EXCITING TIME.
  • 25:32 YOU SEE IN THE FACES OF THE BELIEVERS
  • 25:34 THE TONE OF THEIR HEARTS WHEN THEY'RE SPEAKING TO US ABOUT THE TOUR.
  • 25:38 IT'S JUST A TRANSFORMING TIME FOR ALL OF US.
