Episode: “In the Meantime”
Currently atop the Temple Mount sit the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque, neither of which shows any sign of moving. We hear the Moslem perspective from a representative of Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, which governs the area. We hear from David Parsons of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch, and a Jewish woman who is raising her family in the City of David.
Series: “Zion Forever”
This long-awaited, nine-part series looks back at Israel’s history and forward into prophecy while remembering the present status of the Temple Mount, the most contested real estate on Earth. Throughout the series, we hear from Our Man in Haifa Eitan Shishkoff, and Zola Levitt’s music complements the narrative and scenes of Israel.

Caption transcript for Zion Forever: “In the Meantime” (9/9)

  • 00:27 For Zion's sake I will not hold my peace
  • 00:31 and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest
  • 00:35 until her righteousness goes forth as brightness
  • 00:39 and her salvation as a lamp that burns.
  • 00:52 Shalom and welcome to our program.
  • 00:54 I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 00:55 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 00:56 And we want to welcome you to our series "Zion Forever".
  • 00:58 We have taken you to the City of David, the Temple Mount
  • 01:01 and we're winding the bend today.
  • 01:03 That's right, this is the last program in the series.
  • 01:05 We spent 8 programs establishing not just the Biblical reality
  • 01:09 but the archaeological evidence, the historical evidence
  • 01:12 and just the news that in fact there is a Jewish presence in the Land,
  • 01:17 has been there for thousands of years.
  • 01:19 As one writer said, "from time immemorial".
  • 01:22 And it can't be denied.
  • 01:24 And yet it is being denied in the world media
  • 01:26 and the assault against Jerusalem is ongoing.
  • 01:29 Well you always have a counterfeit when you have something real.
  • 01:32 And we see a little bit of the counterfeit faith that's pressing against
  • 01:36 the reality of the Judeo Christian values
  • 01:38 that God has ordained for us to have.
  • 01:41 There's nothing like the golden rule to "rule" over us all.
  • 01:45 Don't you think Myles?
  • 01:47 Yeah I'm looking forward to an actual dictatorship
  • 01:49 but there's only one dictator I would trust
  • 01:51 and that's "The King of Kings", "Melech Ha-M'lachim",
  • 01:54 Yeshua HaMashiach.
  • 01:56 In this segment we're going to hear from a spokesman for Islam
  • 01:59 so I'm going to ask you to remember what II Peter 1:19 says,
  • 02:08 A reliable word of prophecy.
  • 02:10 That is the Holy Bible.
  • 02:11 But we're going to hear from the other view
  • 02:13 because there is eschatology that Muslims adhere to
  • 02:17 that is in opposition to the eschatology
  • 02:19 or the teaching of the end times
  • 02:21 that we see in the Bible.
  • 02:23 And so I want you to put on your discernment.
  • 02:25 Ask the LORD to help you to understand what's going on in this segment
  • 02:29 as we go to a spokesman for Islam near the Temple Mount.
  • 02:35 (Interpreter) When Umar ibn al-Khattab entered the Holy City
  • 02:39 and opened it peacefully
  • 02:40 there was no trace related to the Jews,
  • 02:43 not a Temple or anything else in the City of Jerusalem.
  • 02:47 Therefore for us as Muslims when the City was opened peacefully
  • 02:51 there was no monument related to the Jews in this location.
  • 02:55 Al-Aqsa mosque is considered holy because it is part of the Muslim doctrine
  • 03:01 and it is mentioned in the holy Koran and the homeland of Isra and Maraj
  • 03:06 And prophet Mohamed, peace be upon him,
  • 03:08 prayed with the prophets in this most.
  • 03:10 So the holiness of this place is because it is part of the doctrine
  • 03:14 and is mentioned in the holy Koran.
  • 03:17 Al-Aqsa Mosque is the 144 dunams area.
  • 03:23 And what lies in-between the 4 walls, this is Al-Aqsa Mosque
  • 03:26 including all the Mosque and everything inside related to it.
  • 03:34 The western wall which is Al Buraq wall
  • 03:37 is an Islamic rock based on the international court decisions.
  • 03:41 In other words the Muslims have allowed the Jews to pray in this location.
  • 03:50 We are not against the Jewish religion.
  • 03:52 We respect the Jewish religion.
  • 03:54 But we do not respect her claims that the Temple lies in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
  • 04:03 Will they build the Temple over the Muslim's doctrine?
  • 04:08 This is impossible.
  • 04:11 Well our friend sounds very sure
  • 04:13 for someone representing an ideology that has been here for 1,400 years.
  • 04:18 And you're looking at a dome that is built on a Christian church
  • 04:23 that is sitting on Roman pillars
  • 04:24 that is based on Jewish land
  • 04:27 that is land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • 04:30 So as we go through the historicity of this
  • 04:33 and we look at the archaeological evidence
  • 04:35 and we see the way the arc of history is moving
  • 04:38 it's important to know that there will be other views.
  • 04:40 In fact, let's go to another man representing Islam
  • 04:43 speaking a little bit more about his view of the area.
  • 04:48 When you come
  • 04:49 maybe you will see
  • 04:51 in Ramadan
  • 04:53 it is filled with people
  • 05:26 (Myles)- We asked this young man
  • 05:28 to describe the process of prayer at the Mosque.
  • 07:06 You really see the difference
  • 07:07 between two world views in this segment
  • 07:10 When we interview the Muslim people Myles;
  • 07:13 in Isaiah 54 it talks about,
  • 07:24 Because our righteousness isn't our own righteousness
  • 07:27 but he gives us his own righteousness.
  • 07:30 I'm so grateful that we're not tied to
  • 07:33 a work's based paradigm or world view.
  • 07:36 I tried it all.
  • 07:37 I tried meditating in the deserts with the Buddhists
  • 07:39 I tried yoga with the Hindus.
  • 07:41 I tried everywhich way
  • 07:42 to make my way to God as I understood him
  • 07:45 and none of it worked.
  • 07:46 I am so grateful that God did it for me by Yeshua's sacrifice.
  • 07:52 Where would we be?
  • 07:53 It's just so clear.
  • 07:55 I understand the concept.
  • 07:56 There's a Jewish concept;
  • 07:58 which is probably where the Muslims got it.
  • 08:00 There's a Jewish concept called " tikun olam " "repairing the world'
  • 08:03 In other words there's something important about our good deeds.
  • 08:06 We need to work to better the world that we live in.
  • 08:09 But I'm so grateful that our eternal salvation is not of our own doing.
  • 08:14 Well's there's no comparison
  • 08:15 between what the Jewish people are trying to do
  • 08:17 and what the Muslims are doing.
  • 08:19 There's just none.
  • 08:20 And I'm so grateful that in this grace-based world view
  • 08:25 that those that have received the grace of God,
  • 08:27 the Christians in the world,
  • 08:29 are awakening to their debt to the Jewish people and to Israel.
  • 08:32 And one of the most premier examples is the
  • 08:34 International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem.
  • 08:38 One of our dear friends is David Parsons.
  • 08:40 He's the media for the ICEJ.
  • 08:43 And he's got such a strong testimony,
  • 08:45 such a strong view of the righteous movement that is in Zionism,
  • 08:50 birthed by God in order to bring the Jewish people home,
  • 08:54 in order to prepare us for the coming of Messiah.
  • 08:56 Let's go to David Parsons now.
  • 09:00 We're still working on bringing the Jews back to the Land,
  • 09:04 our Aliyah operations.
  • 09:07 And of course these have been going on for more than 3 decades
  • 09:10 But the new parts about it is where
  • 09:13 these Jewish people, Jewish communities, are coming from
  • 09:16 and the circumstances that they're coming from.
  • 09:20 So the Aliyah operations are still going strong.
  • 09:23 We're doing all sorts of social work throughout the Land
  • 09:27 trying to give a witness of Christian love and compassion.
  • 09:30 And one of the new areas we've really given an emphasis in recent years
  • 09:36 is helping needy holocaust survivors;
  • 09:40 people who survived the Nazi occupation of Europe
  • 09:44 the genocide against the Jews.
  • 09:45 They managed to survive.
  • 09:47 They're now old.
  • 09:48 They were probably children or teenagers then.
  • 09:51 And some are still falling on hard times now.
  • 09:55 And trying to help them live out their lives with dignity.
  • 09:59 It's amazing that everything your doing is based on
  • 10:01 the Christian understanding of the Jewish history in this Land
  • 10:05 and Christian obligation.
  • 10:07 Romans 15:27,
  • 10:11 And also, I think you might have just mentioned
  • 10:14 that you're still fishing but the hunters may be coming,
  • 10:16 Ukraine, for example.
  • 10:17 There are people coming here for a life that's promised.
  • 10:20 David - You know when the Zionist Movement first arose
  • 10:24 120-30 years ago,
  • 10:27 there were 2 concerns among the Jewish leaders then.
  • 10:31 One was anti-Semitism.
  • 10:33 The Russian pogroms at the time,
  • 10:35 some of the first Jews in what is considered the modern return to Israel
  • 10:39 came from southern Russia
  • 10:41 and some of the Russian orthodox Christians turning on the Jews
  • 10:45 and also the Dreyfus trial in France,
  • 10:49 a country where everyone is supposed to be equal and free and emancipated
  • 10:54 and the Jews were probably some of the most absorbed in regular society
  • 11:00 and yet anti-Semitism was still strong there.
  • 11:03 And then the fear of assimilation
  • 11:06 that the Jews were going to blend in so much with the Gentiles
  • 11:09 and lose their distinction
  • 11:11 And these were the twin pillars on the founding of Israel
  • 11:15 and I think they're still important today.
  • 11:18 I think some of the opponents of the return to Israel,
  • 11:23 the return to Zion,
  • 11:25 have made it a bad label, a negative label.
  • 11:29 But really it speaks of God's unchanging plan
  • 11:33 of world redemption and placing his Name here.
  • 11:36 And we just have to continue to show that positive side of the return to the Land
  • 11:44 and how it's meant to have benefits for the entire world
  • 11:48 It's just still part of that promise of God to Abraham,
  • 11:51 through you I'm going to bless all the families of the earth
  • 11:55 and he was choosing not only a people, Abraham's descendants
  • 11:58 but a certain land as well in order to do that.
  • 12:10 What right does Israel have to her Land?
  • 12:13 What would you say if you were asked?
  • 12:16 In this week's resource "Israel's Right to the Land"
  • 12:19 you'll read 12 astounding facts that will silence all objections
  • 12:23 Calling it "accurate", "fair"

  • 12:42 is just one of our passions here at Zola Levitt Ministries.

  • 13:07 Thank you.
  • 13:10 Well if you've been watching our program for any time
  • 13:12 you have seen my guest many times asking for your funds
  • 13:16 because we know that this ministry
  • 13:18 moves forward only by your gifts of funds.
  • 13:20 Wayne Fournier, thank you for being here.
  • 13:22 My pleasure.
  • 13:23 I have been looking forward to joining you on set for so long.
  • 13:26 Just to sit here
  • 13:28 and talk with you
  • 13:29 about the ministry,
  • 13:31 why we need funds,
  • 13:32 why we want to continue to ask our viewers to help us.
  • 13:35 It's very important.
  • 13:37 You know it comes across that you are not just a spokes mouth
  • 13:40 but you're actually believing what we're doing
  • 13:43 and that really comes through.
  • 13:43 I do.
  • 13:45 I've been actually watching Zola for more than 10 years now
  • 13:47 and reading of course all of the newsletters that come in
  • 13:50 and wanting to get involved
  • 13:51 because I sit at home
  • 13:53 and I watch the different news organizations talk about Israel
  • 13:56 and what's happening in the "Middle East problem" as they call it.
  • 14:01 And I often just become infuriated when I hear them talk
  • 14:04 because I know that they're not telling the truth,
  • 14:07 or if they do it's certainly not all of it.
  • 14:09 That's really the case.
  • 14:10 And as someone with a history in broadcasting,
  • 14:12 you've been doing this many years.
  • 14:13 You really know the behind the scenes world of the news.
  • 14:16 And you understand more than most that
  • 14:18 it's important for there to be
  • 14:19 news outlets or ministry outlets
  • 14:21 that are bringing the truth.
  • 14:22 Exactly, I understand the concept of shaping a story
  • 14:25 before the camera ever starts rolling.
  • 14:28 I mean, that would happen so many times
  • 14:31 in the newsrooms where I worked in local news.
  • 14:33 So I know it's even much more so in the network on the higher level.
  • 14:37 So yeah, to tell the truth, I'm happy to do it.
  • 14:41 We're so glad that you are part of what we're doing.
  • 14:43 It means a lot to us.
  • 14:44 Thank you very much. -Thank you Wayne.
  • 14:46 You know what Wayne is speaking about
  • 14:48 is the reality of the bias in the media.
  • 14:50 And one of the people on the forefront of the battle
  • 14:53 against the disinformation that's going forward,
  • 14:56 is Itamar Marcus.
  • 14:57 He and his small band of dedicated young men and women in Israel
  • 15:01 actually interpret the Arabic media for Israel, for the West.
  • 15:05 And even the Israeli government is listening
  • 15:08 to what Itamar Marcus has to say.
  • 15:10 We're glad to bring him to you right now.
  • 15:14 we're doing a series on Zion Forever
  • 15:17 establishing the Jewish history of the Land,
  • 15:20 the Temple Mount, City of David.
  • 15:22 And I read with interest your article a few, I guess it was about a week ago,
  • 15:25 about Mahmoud Abbas saying that they're teaching their people
  • 15:29 that Israel exists but has no right to exist.
  • 15:33 What a difference.
  • 15:34 Yes, it's a very big difference.
  • 15:36 The Palestinian Authority;
  • 15:38 one of the foundations of Palestinian Authority ideology
  • 15:41 is that the Jewish people have no history in the land of Israel
  • 15:46 never were here and therefore we are a colonial implant
  • 15:52 with no historical right to exist.
  • 15:54 It's something that is taught in the school books.
  • 15:56 It's something that appears in video clips
  • 15:59 regularly on Palestinian television.
  • 16:01 The Palestinian school books has the following words,
  • 16:05 "The 1948 war ended with the greatest catastrophe in history"
  • 16:11 "when the Zionist gangs stole Palestine"
  • 16:14 "and created the State of Israel."
  • 16:16 "Stole" Palestine.
  • 16:17 The "Nakba" (the catastrophe)
  • 16:18 The Nakba, yes.
  • 16:19 But the point is Israel's creation is said to be a theft.
  • 16:22 The Palestinian when they are speaking
  • 16:25 to foreign communities around the world today
  • 16:26 to English speakers.
  • 16:28 They will say that they're upset about Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem
  • 16:32 being in Israel's hands since 1967, to their own people
  • 16:35 it's all of Israel that's a theft.
  • 16:37 And that's the way that children are brought up
  • 16:39 to say Israel having no right to exist.
  • 16:41 Myles-And so currently with the United States
  • 16:44 wavering and pulling back
  • 16:46 and being so ineffective,
  • 16:49 what do you see on the horizon for the peace process?
  • 16:53 Whether there will peace or not is totally in the hands of the Palestinian authority.
  • 16:57 Israel wants peace,
  • 16:59 we've wanted peace for years.
  • 17:00 Israel has shown willingness to compromise.
  • 17:03 We compromise even when weren't sure if there was someone on the other side.
  • 17:07 And we've paid for it dearly
  • 17:09 with literally thousands of casualties and since 1993.
  • 17:16 But now it's clear that Yassir Arafat wasn't sincere.
  • 17:19 And that's why we paid with over 1,200 killed and tens of thousands injured
  • 17:23 in what they call the "intifada" which we call the "terror war".
  • 17:27 And since then under Abbas there is no real indication that he's sincere.
  • 17:32 If he were sincere we would see it.
  • 17:35 If he was sincere we would see him talking to his people
  • 17:39 about real peace,
  • 17:40 about compromise,
  • 17:41 about Jewish history
  • 17:43 and the Jews having a right to exist in the State of Israel.
  • 17:45 We don't see that yet.
  • 17:46 If it would happen we would publicize it.
  • 17:49 Before I let you go, I do want to ask you about this new mosque in Abu Ghosh.
  • 17:54 Abu Ghosh traditionally known as a place of cooperation between Jews and Arabs.
  • 17:58 And now there's this 10 million dollar Chechyan funded mosque going up there.
  • 18:03 What do you think that means?
  • 18:05 Itamar-It's difficult to say.
  • 18:07 Let's see what the teachings will be there.
  • 18:10 Right now we know that mosques that are in Judea and Samaria
  • 18:16 that are under the Palestinian Authority
  • 18:18 have been a source over the years.
  • 18:20 A source of hatred,
  • 18:21 a source of demonization of Jews,
  • 18:23 a source of presenting the killing of Jews as something
  • 18:25 that's a religious act that Allah actually wants.
  • 18:28 The Hamas mosques have used the expression
  • 18:32 that killing a Jew is a way to get to heaven.
  • 18:36 So the mosque has potential for bad; it has potential for good.
  • 18:42 They're people like Sheik Palazzi of Italy
  • 18:46 who is a Muslim leader, scholar,
  • 18:50 and he will quote to you the verses in the Koran
  • 18:52 that he says show that the Islam recognize Israel's right to exist.
  • 18:56 And he claims that the Koran actually anticipates
  • 19:00 the Jewish return to the Land of Israel,
  • 19:02 and that this is Israel's land.
  • 19:04 So, if those were the teachings that'll happen in this mosque
  • 19:08 that would be wonderful
  • 19:09 and it'll be a great step toward peace.
  • 19:11 So let's wait to see what's going to happen in the mosque.
  • 19:14 It's a very, very hopeful statement on your part.
  • 19:17 You have to be hopeful,
  • 19:20 so that's our national anthem, Hatikvah, is hope.
  • 19:22 And that hope is what created the State.
  • 19:26 And the hope will eventually, eventually bring about peace.
  • 19:29 So we just don't know how soon it will be.
  • 19:31 Myles-Itamar, thank you so much.
  • 19:33 You're very welcome.
  • 19:57 Katharine-Israel is a Land full of promises.
  • 20:00 You'll never be the same.
  • 20:01 So we invite you to come.
  • 20:03 It's a trip of a lifetime.
  • 20:05 We'd love you to join us!
  • 20:09 Such a concerted attack against Israel and the Jewish people.
  • 20:12 Think about the language you hear in the media.
  • 20:14 The "West Bank"; what is the "West Bank"?
  • 20:16 It's not some sandy shore of the Jordan River.
  • 20:19 They're speaking about the heartland of Israel where the Bible took place
  • 20:22 in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob's life, where Jesus walked,
  • 20:26 the mountains of Judea and Samaria.
  • 20:28 But what about the word "settler"?
  • 20:30 Well that means a resident; someone who has made Aliyah
  • 20:33 or was born in the Land.
  • 20:35 And is restoring the ancient homeland that goes back to time immemorial.
  • 20:39 Right, right...
  • 20:41 These people are so courageous.
  • 20:43 They have so much faith.
  • 20:45 They'd made a pilgrimage coming back to the Land
  • 20:47 that God prophesied that they would come back to,
  • 20:50 to the mountains of the LORD.
  • 20:52 The world tries to minimize the presence of the Jewish people
  • 20:56 and the promises that God has for them.
  • 20:58 It's prophetic - yeah.
  • 21:00 And so we will be there
  • 21:02 never to be uprooted again.
  • 21:05 And the Word also speaks of restoration.
  • 21:07 That the sound of laughter and joy would be heard again.
  • 21:10 And we heard it in the City of David.
  • 21:12 Let's go to our interview with Efrat,
  • 21:15 a mother in Zion at the City of David.
  • 21:19 Tell us a little bit about this place,
  • 21:21 this specific house, Beit ?
  • 21:23 -Meyuchas
  • 21:24 "Meyuchas' Todah (Thank you)
  • 21:29 Interpreter- Beit Meyuchas is an ancient house
  • 21:31 that belonged to the family Meyuchas.
  • 21:34 They are a Jerusalem family originally from Spain.
  • 21:38 We are talking about the middle of the 19th Century
  • 21:41 when all the Jews lived only between the walls of the old upper city.
  • 21:45 It was very crowded, with hunger and diseases,
  • 21:49 no medicines and very hard to live there.
  • 21:52 The family Meyuchas lived there, buying and selling meat.
  • 21:57 Every morning they had to wake up very early
  • 22:00 to be at the gates when they opened to go to work,
  • 22:03 slaughter the animals and return before the gates closed at sunset.
  • 22:07 It's very hard on them.
  • 22:10 Moses Montefiore starts to move out of the walls in 1862,
  • 22:17 and the Meyuchas family and a few other families too.
  • 22:20 They built their homes outside the walls
  • 22:23 and they wrote letters to the city residents
  • 22:26 telling them that they didn't drink well water but fresh spring water,
  • 22:30 and we are growing our vegetables for ourselves.
  • 22:34 And here they started their new life around 1872.
  • 22:39 Then they lived here until the pogroms when they had to leave the house.
  • 22:43 And this is Beit Meyuchas.
  • 22:47 Tell us how you came to the City of David.
  • 22:49 So I was raised in Herzliya.
  • 22:53 My parents raised me to do something with meaning
  • 22:55 or to have a mission in my life.
  • 22:57 We were blessed to come here and be one of the first families
  • 23:00 to return to the City of David 23 years ago, more or less.
  • 23:04 They were looking for young couples.
  • 23:05 So we came as a young couple with a new born baby.
  • 23:09 From then we have been blessed to live here
  • 23:11 as one link in the chain of Jewish people.
  • 23:13 We see it as very important that we came back to the City of David
  • 23:16 3,000 years after King David.
  • 23:19 We are raising 9 kids here.
  • 23:21 Our daughter that we brought here as a baby, has married
  • 23:23 and also lives here with two cute children who live and play here in the City of David.
  • 23:28 Our viewers love Israel.
  • 23:31 But they would love to hear from you
  • 23:33 how you see that this is part of the fulfillment of Tanakh and prophetic history.
  • 23:39 I seriously feel that our life here today is connected to history and the Bible.
  • 23:45 When I am walking here I can feel the presence of King David.
  • 23:49 I know that in this place on this hill most of the Bible was written.
  • 23:53 It's something I really feel every single moment.
  • 23:57 People think with time passing after 23 years that people wouldn't be excited anymore.
  • 24:02 But I'm excited every day more and more.
  • 24:05 And when I'm walking here I know that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
  • 24:08 three patriarchs, dreamed of coming here.
  • 24:11 And I'm blessed not only to come to Jerusalem
  • 24:14 but to the City of David after 3,000 years.
  • 24:19 What is the most that I feel here?
  • 24:23 When we came here we were 10 Jewish families with only 3 children all together.
  • 24:28 And today in the City of David there are hundreds of kids running and jumping.
  • 24:32 And the prophet Zechariah said there will be a time
  • 24:36 when old men and women will sit in Jerusalem with canes in there hands because they are so old
  • 24:42 and children will be playing in the streets.
  • 24:45 We are also starting to be a little bit older,
  • 24:48 not with canes yet,
  • 24:49 and we have to be in good physical shape here to go up and down
  • 24:52 and to stay healthy with the help of God.
  • 24:54 If you come when the children are playing there is a lot of noise and rumble
  • 24:58 and they are jumping and going up and down.
  • 25:01 And there is something that we experience all the time
  • 25:03 and we feel it.
  • 25:08 It says in the scripture
  • 25:10 that God will plant the Jewish people back in the Land
  • 25:13 with his whole heart.
  • 25:15 God has a heart.
  • 25:17 He has a mind and he has a will.
  • 25:19 I mean literally,
  • 25:21 he said he'll plant his feet back on the Mount of Olives.
  • 25:23 Let me read the Scripture
  • 25:25 just in case you might not believe me.
  • 25:27 It's Jeremiah 32:44,
  • 25:41 Myles-that's beautiful.
  • 25:43 You know Amos 9:15 goes along with that and says never to be uprooted again.
  • 25:47 And we're in that time.
  • 25:48 Because there's been coming and goings over the millennia.
  • 25:51 But we are here now... -the end of the end of the age.
  • 25:53 Exactly, and we're looking for the coming of Messiah.
  • 25:56 And so that's what the opposition is about.
  • 25:59 It's opposition about the Word.
  • 26:00 And opposition to the Author of the Word.
  • 26:03 That's really what we're seeing.
  • 26:04 It goes back to the Garden.
  • 26:05 It goes all the way until the coming of Messiah
  • 26:08 when he sets up his kingdom, his throne - in - Jerusalem.
  • 26:12 And rules for 1,000 years from there.
  • 26:14 No wonder there's such a contest.
  • 26:16 -the enemy.
  • 26:17 Yes, no wonder there's such a contest
  • 26:19 over this reality of the Jewish presence in the Land.
  • 26:22 The reality of the history.
  • 26:24 The Temple Mount,
  • 26:24 the City of David,
  • 26:26 two keys to the understanding of God's plan for the ages
  • 26:30 and his view towards the coming of peace on earth.
  • 26:35 We're not going to see it fully
  • 26:36 until Sar Shalom , the "Prince of Peace" comes.
  • 26:38 Right, but it's our job to pray
  • 26:40 and it's our job to stand.
  • 26:42 You know when you're in the Book you have the faith for the Land.
  • 26:45 So I encourage you to stay in the Book
  • 26:47 and stay in faith for what God has for you
  • 26:49 and what he has for the Jewish people.
  • 26:51 Yeah, and we need to stand with life-giving ministries
  • 26:54 that are bringing forward the truths of the Bible,
  • 26:57 ministries in Israel that are preaching the Gospel,
  • 26:59 that are standing with the Jewish people.
  • 27:01 Help us!
  • 27:02 to bring these messages out.
  • 27:03 Because we want to continue to increase our footprint,
  • 27:06 our ability to touch this world while it is yet day.
  • 27:10 We want to keep working while it is yet day.
  • 27:12 And that's why we always end our program;
  • 27:14 we end this series as well
  • 27:16 with this prayer from Psalm 122:6
  • 27:20 Sha'a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:21 Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem
