  • 00:01 When you hear the name Herod the Great
  • 00:03 you think about the spiritual battle
  • 00:05 between the ways of the world and the ways of God
  • 00:08 Well what about the spiritual battle that takes place at Herod's Gate?
  • 00:11 We're coming to you from Herod's Gate in Jerusalem.

  • 01:04 Shalom and welcome to our program. I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 01:06 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:07 And we want to welcome you to our program
  • 01:10 Jerusalem...Ancient Gates but Future Glory
  • 01:13 We're going to take you in depth to study the Gates of the Lord
  • 01:17 inside the City of our God.
  • 01:20 And it's such a privilege to be able to walk about the City
  • 01:23 and to learn...
  • 01:25 You know God saves certain things for us in these days
  • 01:29 to prove the validity of His Word
  • 01:31 and the validity of His soon return.
  • 01:33 Yes, the City has gates entering into the Old City.
  • 01:37 They have a historical meaning,
  • 01:39 they have a current meaning,
  • 01:40 and they have a prophetic future meaning for us.
  • 01:42 And so we're excited about that.
  • 01:44 There are currently 8 Gates there.
  • 01:46 One of them is blocked but it will not always be so.
  • 01:48 You'll learn about that in a future program.
  • 01:50 We have a special guest today.
  • 01:52 Oh, absolutely!
  • 01:53 We have Rosemary Schindler
  • 01:54 will be on today and we'll be sharing her journey
  • 01:57 of standing with the Jewish people and being an advocate
  • 02:00 for what God designed her to be for the Jewish State.
  • 02:04 And she's taken on a legacy of Oskar Schindler.
  • 02:07 She's really been a bridge builder between the Jews and the Christians.
  • 02:10 She's even served part time in the IDF as just a volunteer.
  • 02:15 You know there is just so many ways that you can be involved to be that watchman on the wall.
  • 02:19 I love what the Talmud says that he who saves a life saves the world entire.
  • 02:25 So our focus would be the salvation of the Jewish people.
  • 02:29 Yes, and that phrase became associated with Oskar Schindler
  • 02:32 after he learned that he could affect...
  • 02:35 Make a difference.
  • 02:36 Yes, he could make a difference.
  • 02:37 And we could make a difference too.
  • 02:38 Today we're going to be going to Herod's Gate
  • 02:40 which brings up the question from Psalms 24:10
  • 02:42 (Speaking Hebrew)
  • 02:44 Who is this King of glory?
  • 02:46 Because Herod thought that he was the king of glory
  • 02:48 and we know that he is not.
  • 02:50 You know sometimes you'll hear us speak about the gates
  • 02:53 entering into different Quarters of the Old City.
  • 02:56 They're not actually "quarters" as we think of them that are equally divided.
  • 02:59 They are sections that are unequally divided.
  • 03:02 The Muslim Quarter is the largest.
  • 03:05 There's an Armenian Quarter, a Christian Quarter and
  • 03:07 the smallest Quarter of all, the Jewish Quarter.
  • 03:10 Which doesn't somehow seem right.
  • 03:11 Right
  • 03:13 But I think we can pray and take that up with God.
  • 03:15 Because the King of Glory is returning to a Jewish Jerusalem
  • 03:19 And He will rule and reign from Jerusalem.
  • 03:22 And the whole world will come up to worship Him there.
  • 03:25 So let's go to Jerusalem and Herod's Gate.
  • 03:35 You know in spite of the bloodshed that has happened here
  • 03:39 God has called us to be watchmen on the wall.
  • 03:41 So even more we need your prayers
  • 03:44 to pray over the peace of Jerusalem.
  • 03:46 You can feel the tension over on this side of the Quarter ...of the Muslim Quarter
  • 03:50 So thank you for standing with us with the people of Israel.
  • 03:55 You know it's amazing Isaiah 62 tells us to stand as watchmen
  • 04:00 And that's our job today.
  • 04:01 This part of the era that we're in.
  • 04:04 This is the end of the age.
  • 04:05 We're looking for Messiah to come.
  • 04:07 And we really believe that we're calling...
  • 04:10 through these programs we're calling you to stand as watchmen on the walls.
  • 04:13 Here in the northern part in Herod's Gate
  • 04:15 there is so much history about the invasions from the north.
  • 04:19 And yet we believe that it is a place
  • 04:22 where we can stand together in unity and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • 04:26 Absolutely, you know God has called us to be His voice in this hour.
  • 04:32 Like never before we need to stand up and be a voice for Yeshua.
  • 04:36 So thank you for being interested in what the Old City stands for
  • 04:41 and what God soon will bring to pass as His presence will come down from Heaven
  • 04:47 and He will have an eternal City right here.
  • 04:50 Amen
  • 04:58 We hope you're enjoying our series
  • 04:59 "Jerusalem, Ancient Gates - Future Glory"
  • 05:03 As we present the historical and spiritual significance
  • 05:07 of each Gate surrounding the Old City of Jerusalem.

  • 05:57 Thank you
  • 05:59 We're now in front of Herod's Gate, the Flower Gate.
  • 06:02 There's historically been a flower market within these Gates
  • 06:05 so that's how it got it's name.
  • 06:07 But it goes back to the time of King Herod.
  • 06:09 They believe that he was the original builder of the first wall
  • 06:13 that of course has been rebuilt, destroyed and rebuilt.
  • 06:15 In fact, because this is on the north side
  • 06:18 it's been the place of weakness and attack over the centuries
  • 06:22 over and over again.
  • 06:23 The Babylonians came from the north.
  • 06:25 Rome came from the north.
  • 06:26 The Crusaders came from the north.
  • 06:28 In fact, Godfrey, the Crusader in 1099
  • 06:31 this is one of the places where he defeated the Muslims.
  • 06:35 And so it's a place of real tension.
  • 06:37 In fact, you can actually still feel the tension in the area today.
  • 06:40 I think it's in the spiritual atmosphere here.
  • 06:43 But the reality is that this is also close to the northern end of the city
  • 06:48 where we're near Mount Scopus.
  • 06:50 And Mount Scopus is the Greek name for what the Hebrews called
  • 06:53 "Har HaTsofim", or "The Mountain of Watching"
  • 06:57 "The Mountain of Inspection or Watching Over"
  • 06:59 Isn't it interesting that the modern Hebrew word for Christian
  • 07:03 is "notzrim" which also means "watchmen"
  • 07:07 And so again we see that we're in a season where God
  • 07:11 is calling us to be "watchmen on the walls".
  • 07:13 Remember, our work is spiritual.
  • 07:15 It is not primarily physical.
  • 07:16 However, there is a physical relationship to what God has intended for this Land
  • 07:22 and the way that He has intended to be the King over it.
  • 07:26 And then to give it as He wills to whom He wills.
  • 07:29 And so you can feel the tension in this area.
  • 07:31 We can sense that there is a battle over the Gate
  • 07:35 and over the ownership of the area we could say.
  • 07:40 In 1998 there was an archaeological discovery near here that found that there were
  • 07:45 9 layers of life that had taken place here.
  • 07:48 Imagine like in archaeology,
  • 07:52 a Tel is a place of archaeological findings.
  • 07:55 And it's where one culture builds on top of another.
  • 07:58 Well in this area, right here on the northern end of the City
  • 08:01 they found 9 layers of culture going back through history.
  • 08:05 I think that this is a great place for us to be aware of
  • 08:09 the necessity for the church at large to pray for our Muslim friends.
  • 08:14 We need to pray that they will come to salvation,
  • 08:17 they will come to know Yeshua Ha Meshiach
  • 08:19 because He is sovereignly visiting Muslims.
  • 08:22 And we need to be those who are praying for that to happen.
  • 08:25 That the veil literally will be taken away.
  • 08:28 The veil that is currently over the women of Islam
  • 08:31 is also over the hearts of the Muslims.
  • 08:34 And we need to be praying for the veil to be taken away.
  • 08:37 I like the way our friend Avi Lipkin says,
  • 08:40 we bring them the Lord or they bring us the sword.
  • 08:42 And so it's up to us to pray that they will find the Lord.
  • 08:46 Because when they do their hatred is transformed to love.
  • 08:50 And their cry for jihad becomes a cry for salvation and love to all mankind.
  • 08:56 And we need to pray for that.

  • 09:38 You know coming to Israel is not just a vacation, it's a pilgrimage.

  • 09:43 where the scripture will come alive
  • 09:45 and God will deepen your walk with Him.
  • 09:47 He'll change your life forever.
  • 09:49 And the Bible will never be the same.
  • 09:52 It'll be multi-dimensional.
  • 09:53 That's really true.
  • 09:55 I remember years ago we brought a group of leaders.
  • 09:57 And this pastor of a large church in our area
  • 10:00 he said...with a tear in his eye
  • 10:02 he said, Myles why wasn't this 35 years ago in seminary?
  • 10:06 Why did I wait my entire ministry life to find out where the Word comes from
  • 10:11 and the origins and the roots
  • 10:13 and to have it come alive in that particular way?
  • 10:16 Really, come to Israel with us.
  • 10:18 You will not regret it.
  • 10:19 As Zola said, it's worth 10 years of Sunday School.
  • 10:22 One tour...one trip
  • 10:23 You can go online,
  • 10:25 You can find out about it at levitt.com
  • 10:27 or call us at 1-800-WONDERS
  • 10:29 speak to our Tour Manager, Sandra.
  • 10:31 And come with us.
  • 10:32 It's really a trip of a lifetime.
  • 10:35 So we get to meet some amazing people as we do these programs.
  • 10:39 And Tamar is a 10th generation in the Land.
  • 10:43 She is an expert on the Gates.
  • 10:46 She teaches, she writes about the Gates.
  • 10:48 She even teaches and writes for children so they grow up understanding these things.
  • 10:52 And we interviewed her about the Gates.
  • 10:55 She actually is a tour guide instructor.
  • 10:58 She teaches Guides how to Guide.
  • 11:00 So let's go right now to our interview with Tamar in Israel.
  • 11:07 What you're doing is so important in terms of
  • 11:09 bringing awareness to the next generation of the whole world.
  • 11:12 Our children are college age.
  • 11:14 They're older and they face anti-Semitism, anti-Israelism on their campuses in America.
  • 11:20 Can you tell our viewers about the importance of what you're doing and how...
  • 11:24 what their attitude will make a difference also in this world.
  • 11:28 Well, "awareness", that's the word
  • 11:31 If you don't know, you can't feel, you can't understand.
  • 11:36 And that's something that...
  • 11:38 This is my effort as a tour guide whenever I have a group coming here.
  • 11:42 This is exactly who I want to show.
  • 11:44 It's not just the history, it's not just the archaeology.
  • 11:47 This is something you can find anywhere in the world.
  • 11:49 Jerusalem tells you a story.
  • 11:50 And these stones... the rocks...the walls
  • 11:53 It's not just a wall, it's not just a piece of stone.
  • 11:57 This is something that I always say when I go to the Western Wall for example.
  • 12:01 I always say that we treat the Western Wall as something very holy, so important.
  • 12:07 But if you take just one stone out of that wall;
  • 12:10 you put it on the other side it's just another stone.
  • 12:12 We have to remember that the stones tell us a story that we'd like to hear.
  • 12:17 If we're not there, if we don't listen it doesn't work.
  • 12:20 That's what I try to do with groups that come to Jerusalem.
  • 12:22 I try to figure out a way for them to understand what these stones are telling us.
  • 12:28 And by doing that you get connected to the story...
  • 12:31 to the old story, to the history, to the archaeology.
  • 12:33 And I think then this is what I try to do.
  • 12:36 They understand that the fact that I live here today and my family lives here
  • 12:40 and the fact that we are here again a
  • 12:43 Jewish State in Israel after so many years of trying to have it
  • 12:46 This is the continuation of these stones.
  • 12:49 It's really the story of HaShem.
  • 12:52 It's the people "Am Yisrael Chai"...
  • 12:54 "The people of Israel live" but it's His story also.
  • 12:57 Everywhere
  • 12:58 Thank you
  • 13:01 It's so fitting that we're in front of this panorama of the City.
  • 13:05 I think about this wonderful guide that we spoke to,
  • 13:08 this trainer of guides Tamar.
  • 13:10 And she actually spoke in terms of the City talking to her
  • 13:14 and the blessing that it was to be a native Jerusalem.
  • 13:18 Just the generations of living there as if it was alive and the gates were alive to her.
  • 13:23 Absolutely
  • 13:25 It was just a fantastic testimony.
  • 13:26 She knows that she is living in a privileged time.
  • 13:28 Because the people of the Book are back in the Land of the Book
  • 13:33 Right...exactly
  • 13:35 And she really touched on...
  • 13:36 And we felt real strongly that there's something about the generational need
  • 13:41 for parents and grandparents to pass on these understandings so that we have a bulwark against
  • 13:47 anti-Semitism and against this anti-Zionism that's in the world right now.
  • 13:51 I think we always have to remember that anti-Semitism is really anti-God.
  • 13:57 The seed bed is not believing in that there is a God
  • 14:02 and He has a plan and He is sovereign
  • 14:04 and He gets to choose and He gets to place people where He will.
  • 14:08 And yet he's not a discriminating God.
  • 14:11 He's an inclusive God, He's a loving God.
  • 14:13 And He invites all to come to Him.
  • 14:16 His way.
  • 14:16 His way - Yes
  • 14:18 Well we're going to hear from our good friend Rosemary Schindler.
  • 14:21 She has a lot to say about anti-Semitism and where we are now in time.
  • 14:26 And there's a warning for us as Americans and as the Church
  • 14:30 to not be on the wrong side of history
  • 14:33 but to stand with God and His plan.
  • 14:36 So let's go now to Rosemary Schindler as she speaks at Oskar Schindler's grave.
  • 14:44 I'm standing here in the Catholic cemetery on Mount Zion
  • 14:48 where the only German Nazi was allowed to be buried in Jerusalem,
  • 14:53 that of Oskar Schindler.
  • 14:55 This is his grave.
  • 14:57 It was 39 years ago he passed away on October 9, 1974 at the age of 66.
  • 15:05 He was buried here in honor of the nearly 12,000 Jews
  • 15:10 that he saved by employing them in his factories
  • 15:15 first in enamelware and then ammunitions factory
  • 15:18 in Poland and Czechoslovakia
  • 15:21 for 6 years during the entire holocaust
  • 15:24 daily risking his life,
  • 15:26 being imprisoned, facing possible death
  • 15:29 and maneuvering and manipulating all of his resources
  • 15:34 to save the lives of his employees who he referred to as his children.
  • 15:40 He and his wife Emilie were childless but they were allowed to adopt the Jewish families
  • 15:49 of Poland and Germany through the business that they were given as Nazi officials
  • 15:55 when the Jewish businesses were confiscated beginning in 1939 during Kristallnacht.
  • 16:02 It was 80 years ago that Adolph Hitler came to power in Germany.
  • 16:09 He offered change to the people in a hard economic times.
  • 16:13 He told them he would be their champion,
  • 16:16 that he would restore Germany to prominence and to power.
  • 16:21 She stood as the most Christian nation in all of Europe at that time.
  • 16:26 But the people wanted change.
  • 16:31 (Myles speaking) And change is what they got.
  • 16:34 Health care...gun control
  • 16:37 ...abortion
  • 16:38 The people of Germany saw in Adolph Hitler a superhero
  • 16:42 That would bring resolution to their every need.
  • 16:45 At Yad Vashem, Jerusalem's Holocaust Memorial
  • 16:48 Katharine and Rosemary walked along the Garden of the righteous Gentiles.
  • 16:52 At that site tribute is paid to Oskar Schindler and others
  • 16:56 who sacrificed their lives to save the lives of others
  • 17:00 in one of history's darkest hours.
  • 17:04 The same propaganda
  • 17:05 And it's a different form that's coming, arising on our college campuses today.
  • 17:09 It's an anti-Zionism.
  • 17:11 They say it's okay to be a Jew but just not a Zionist.
  • 17:15 That is a heartbreak for you and for me to hear.
  • 17:19 And so we just want to continue to educate
  • 17:22 our audience and their children
  • 17:24 that God has a plan with Israel.
  • 17:27 And do you have anything to say about Zion and God's appointed times
  • 17:30 and what He would be saying to the world today about Zion?
  • 17:35 Yes...well Zion, the new anti-Semitism,
  • 17:39 the same anti-Semitism in a global form is anti-Zionism.
  • 17:45 People must understand when they reject Israel,
  • 17:48 when they speak bad about Israel,
  • 17:50 persecute Israel and divest from Israel
  • 17:53 They are acting in the same way
  • 17:55 that the Germans and Europeans did to oppress the Jewish people
  • 18:00 70 - 80 years ago in the holocaust.
  • 18:04 That the new anti-Semitism is anti-Zionism
  • 18:07 not just against the Jewish people
  • 18:11 but against the entire nation of Israel.
  • 18:14 On an up note you and I have had the privilege
  • 18:17 of leading many pilgrims to this Holy Land
  • 18:21 and sharing God's heart.
  • 18:22 And seeing the anti-Semitism leave
  • 18:25 and seeing them return from Israel back to the states
  • 18:28 with such a heart for the Lord and for His Land.
  • 18:31 And then multiply the positive,
  • 18:36 the view that God has about this Land.
  • 18:38 And one of this little carob pods...
  • 18:41 Can you tell our audience a little bit about what this is?
  • 18:44 In the Holocaust memorial museum called Yad Vashem
  • 18:48 there is an avenue of trees that are planted
  • 18:52 representing the Gentiles,the non-Jews
  • 18:56 who risked their life without remuneration,
  • 18:59 put themselves in danger to save the lives of Jewish people
  • 19:05 being sent to concentration camp or assigned to death,
  • 19:09 or in other way taking them out of harms way.
  • 19:13 And this is in memory of those who withstood the evil forces
  • 19:20 and were an exception to the rule.
  • 19:23 And so Israel honors those righteous
  • 19:27 by planting trees
  • 19:29 and particularly carob trees.
  • 19:31 And this is a tree that has qualities
  • 19:34 that express the type of individual
  • 19:37 who would withstand tough and perilous times.
  • 19:43 The carob tree even if it's burnt,
  • 19:45 with water the roots will spring back.
  • 19:49 WOW...
  • 19:50 So it's showing how even in the holocaust
  • 19:53 with the death of the 6 million, with their destruction in the oven,
  • 19:58 they were revived and they were resurrected
  • 20:01 in a way that Israel came back as a nation after 2,000 years.
  • 20:07 And particularly this fruit, this carob fruit is something
  • 20:16 that would sustain people in the wilderness in times of famine.
  • 20:21 And inside its pod is a seed that is a weight of measure
  • 20:29 that was used to weigh the value of jewelry and diamonds
  • 20:36 and to determine the carat value
  • 20:39 expressing the preciousness of the Jewish people,
  • 20:43 the preciousness of every single life
  • 20:45 and the preciousness of those individuals who saved one life or many.
  • 20:53 There's a saying that goes with those righteous
  • 20:58 is that he that saves the life of one man
  • 21:02 is as if he saved the entire world.
  • 21:05 Because more precious than even the world itself
  • 21:09 is a human life made in the image of God.
  • 21:12 Thank you for your service.
  • 21:14 You inspire me
  • 21:16 and I know you inspire many people to live for God
  • 21:20 and to live for His plan for each and every one of us.
  • 21:23 To be that light and to value life
  • 21:26 and to value what God values.
  • 21:28 So thank you Rosemary.
  • 21:29 You're welcome Katharine.

  • 25:24 I love Marty's music "For Zion's Sake"
  • 25:27 You know scripture talks about it in Isaiah 62:1
  • 25:30 For Zion's sake I will not hold My peace,
  • 25:33 and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest,
  • 25:37 until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
  • 25:40 and her salvation as a lamp that burns.
  • 25:45 God speaks very dearly about the people of Israel and the place of Israel.
  • 25:49 Yes, that's why it's such an honor to do what we do here
  • 25:51 and be able to bring this message to the world,
  • 25:53 to the Church, to the western world.
  • 25:55 Actually we've heard people from Australia see us.
  • 25:57 People in Israel see us.
  • 25:59 And we can't do it without your gifts of funds.
  • 26:01 We're so grateful that you partner with us.
  • 26:03 Because we can bring you these programs
  • 26:05 and keep pushing back against anti-Semitism,
  • 26:08 keep lifting up the Lord,
  • 26:09 keep speaking about the coming of Messiah,
  • 26:12 and this wonderful thing that's happening between Jews and Christians
  • 26:15 and especially within the body between Jews and Gentiles
  • 26:18 as we learn to worship Yeshua together.
  • 26:21 I mean it's just a...
  • 26:22 we're in a time of miracles.
  • 26:24 But you always say, you know...the new spin on it
  • 26:26 it's okay to be a Jew but it's not okay to be a Zionist.
  • 26:29 Well that's not God's truth.
  • 26:31 Exactly so
  • 26:33 You know they... "I'm not anti-Semitic"
  • 26:35 "I'm just anti-Zionist, anti-Israel."
  • 26:37 Well Israel was given to the Jewish people,
  • 26:40 is a safe place for us to be, for us to live, to flourish
  • 26:43 and by the way be a blessing to the rest of the world.
  • 26:46 And so to be anti-Zionist is to be anti-Semitic
  • 26:49 and it is be as you said essentially anti-God.
  • 26:52 Because His Word has prophesied these things
  • 26:56 and the times that we're living in right now.
  • 26:58 So next week we will be visiting the Lion's Gate
  • 27:03 which was where the IDF broke through in 1967
  • 27:06 to bring Jerusalem back to the Jewish people and to Israel.
  • 27:10 And so it's going to be a very exciting program.
  • 27:12 Don't miss it.
  • 27:14 And always please remember
  • 27:15 Sha'alu Shalom Yerushalayim.
  • 27:18 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
