Series: “Times of the Signs (2017)”
In this eight-program TV series, Myles and Katharine Weiss encourage Believers to look beyond the troubling prophetic signs of our day and live in growing expectation of our Messiah’s return.
Episode: “Government on Whose Shoulders?”
Just as prideful Nimrod built the tower in Babel, Satan attempts to install a man-based government over Earth. Witness the United Nations, which claims to seek world peace but stands against Israel and, thusly, against the God of Israel and the Prince of Peace. The King of the Jews will return in all His glory. Mankind’s only hope lies in humbly accepting Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross. Only then will we be lifted up to rule with Him.

Caption transcript for Times of the Signs (2017): “Government on Whose Shoulders?” (2/8)

  • 00:04 Hi, I'm David Hart
  • 00:05 Welcome to Zola Levitt Presents
  • 00:07 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:08 Today, on Times of the Signs
  • 00:10 We'll be discussing the coming one-world government.
  • 00:14 And Myles will be teaching about the
  • 00:16 1,000 year reign in Jerusalem.
  • 00:19 Stay with us.
  • 01:18 Shalom, and welcome to our program, I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 01:20 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:22 We want to welcome you to our series "Times of the Signs".
  • 01:25 We are in the beginning of the end.
  • 01:27 I think so.
  • 01:29 I think we're seeing since Israel became a state in 1948,
  • 01:32 the re-born State of Israel,
  • 01:34 we're seeing the signs that Yeshua spoke of
  • 01:36 really getting closer together
  • 01:38 and the world getting ready for the return of the LORD.
  • 01:42 Right.
  • 01:43 And it's not the end.
  • 01:44 It's the end of this state that we know.
  • 01:46 Cause we know we're going to an eternal state
  • 01:48 that will be far greater
  • 01:49 than we could ever hope or dream.
  • 01:51 There's good news ahead for sure.
  • 01:52 And over the course of this series
  • 01:54 we'll certainly be letting you know
  • 01:55 that this is a good report
  • 01:57 in spite of what we see shaping up in the world.
  • 01:59 We're actually looking today at
  • 02:01 the signs of a one-world government growing.
  • 02:03 It's always been an issue of the pride of man
  • 02:06 trying to supercede the will of God.
  • 02:09 Well, Satan tried to get Jesus
  • 02:10 to act independently of the Father.
  • 02:12 I'll make you the king, or the ruler of this world.
  • 02:16 If you bow down.
  • 02:18 Bow down and worship me.
  • 02:20 And it's always been an issue of Satan infusing into man
  • 02:24 the idea that he can overcome
  • 02:26 the will of God, the purposes of God.
  • 02:28 But we know that will fail.
  • 02:30 Right, we see even in the beginning and in Genesis 11
  • 02:32 how man attempted to make themselves a city.
  • 02:36 They attempted to have unity independent from God.
  • 02:39 God wanted something else.
  • 02:40 He wanted them to scatter and multiply.
  • 02:42 And they said, let us make a name for ourselves.
  • 02:46 And they wanted to have their name separate from God.
  • 02:49 And God loves us so much that He wants us to work together.
  • 02:53 And it's such a better story if we work with the Father.
  • 02:57 Right, the counterfeit will never work.
  • 02:59 So let's go to Jerusalem
  • 03:00 and you'll find me standing in front of the United Nations, on "The Hill of Evil Counsel".
  • 03:14 Approximately 800 years before the birth of Yeshua
  • 03:17 the prophet Isaiah promised (Speaking Hebrew)
  • 03:29 Do you know, ever since that time from the beginning of time
  • 03:32 there's been a battle in the heavenlies
  • 03:34 regarding the government of God
  • 03:36 and the attempted government of man over planet earth.
  • 03:39 Ironically, we're standing here in front of the United Nations outpost in Jerusalem.
  • 03:44 And it's actually called "The Hill of Evil Counsel"
  • 03:48 That name goes back to the Byzantine era.
  • 03:51 Tradition has it that this is where
  • 03:53 Caiaphas, Judas, and the surrounding rulers plotted to kill Jesus.
  • 03:59 And it grew that name traditionally through the church.
  • 04:03 To the east is the Mount of Olives.
  • 04:05 To the west is Mount Zion.
  • 04:07 And here we are on The Hill of Evil Counsel
  • 04:10 Where the battle between God's government and man's attempt at government
  • 04:14 continues even today.
  • 04:16 This is not a new problem.
  • 04:18 This is not a new situation.
  • 04:20 In fact, we can look all the way back in the beginning of the Bible to the Tower of Babel.
  • 04:25 When a hunter, a man named Nimrod
  • 04:28 said, that we could build ourselves a one-way trip
  • 04:32 to heaven and overcome the power of God.
  • 04:34 We could be like God.
  • 04:36 We could unify ourselves.
  • 04:37 And God looked down upon man
  • 04:40 and broke that conspiracy apart
  • 04:43 and scattered the people
  • 04:44 creating nations in the process.
  • 04:46 And scattered the languages of people
  • 04:49 so that we could never have that false unity
  • 04:51 that could attempt to oppose Him.
  • 04:53 But Satan has not given up on that.
  • 04:56 And that's why today we see these attempts
  • 04:58 at a unity among the nations
  • 05:01 that leaves God out of the equation.
  • 05:04 And sadly to say that the United Nations is part of that process.
  • 05:09 Today we see it as a forum
  • 05:11 for almost continual assault on Israel
  • 05:14 and very little notice of the poor treatment of humanity by other nations.
  • 05:20 In fact it's become practically a gathering of rogues.
  • 05:24 It's a rogues gallery these days
  • 05:26 and it's heartbreaking.
  • 05:27 I remember growing up in New York City.
  • 05:29 And one of the requirements for a field trip was to go
  • 05:32 to the U.N. headquarters in Manhattan.
  • 05:35 And we used to exalt at the possibility of world peace.
  • 05:38 We looked forward to world peace.
  • 05:40 We believed it.
  • 05:41 We heard the message of the U.N., the United Nations.
  • 05:44 Sadly to say, here in Israel today
  • 05:48 the colloquialism is U.N. stands for "United Nothing".
  • 05:52 Because it has not been a good thing for Israel.
  • 05:56 In fact, it's been a means for the nations of this world
  • 05:59 to stand against Israel and the God of Israel.
  • 06:04 Just a stones throw from The Hill of Evil Counsel
  • 06:07 you see over my shoulder the most contested real estate in all the world. Why?
  • 06:12 Is it a battle of flesh and blood? No.
  • 06:14 It's a battle in the heavenlies that goes back to Genesis 3
  • 06:18 with the fall of man by the intrusion of Satan.
  • 06:21 In fact, Babel and Babylon are the bookends of history.
  • 06:26 Nimrod, his very name means "rebellion".
  • 06:28 And Satan comes into wherever there is
  • 06:30 a vacuum and tries to fill that space.
  • 06:33 It's said that Nature abhors a vacuum.
  • 06:35 I would say the supernatural abhors a vacuum as well.
  • 06:39 And the enemy of God is always trying to fill places that are
  • 06:42 abandoned by the people of God.
  • 06:44 And that is why this battle continues.
  • 06:46 Think about the United Nations.
  • 06:48 Its' precursor, the League of Nations
  • 06:51 puts such an onerous weight on Germany to crush the economy after World War I
  • 06:57 That the depression and the economic hardship and the difficulty made a vacuum
  • 07:02 that made a possibility for the arising of one like Adolph Hitler.
  • 07:06 Where are we today in time that is similar?
  • 07:09 We're seeing economic chaos.
  • 07:11 At the same time we're seeing this push for unity, economic unity.
  • 07:15 We're seeing rebellion in places all around the world.
  • 07:19 Difficulties, nations striving against one another.
  • 07:22 And Satan has always worked through human agents.
  • 07:24 Think about Cain, and the Pharaohs, and the Inquisition, and the Crusades, even into
  • 07:31 today where we see Hamas and Hezbollah, proxies of Iran
  • 07:35 standing against the people of God and the purposes of God.
  • 07:38 It's a spiritual battle.
  • 07:41 And the promise of Satan, the counterfeit lie that comes from Satan
  • 07:45 is just the same one that was from the Garden, that you shall be as gods.
  • 07:49 And therefore, we see incredible scientific
  • 07:52 breakthrough that is extending life
  • 07:55 and introducing the possibility of some interplay
  • 07:58 between the life of the soul and the life of the body
  • 08:01 with promises that are unwarranted and not of God.
  • 08:05 Therefore, we see that one more time, the time we're living in today
  • 08:09 is very similar to the time of the rebellion in Babel.
  • 08:13 And also, the conditions are set now for the coming of Messiah.
  • 08:17 Just as they were set in what Paul called in Galatians
  • 08:20 "the fullness of time" for the first coming of Messiah,
  • 08:23 conditions are setting up today for the return of Messiah.
  • 08:26 However, He came as the Lamb of God
  • 08:29 but He's returning as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
  • 08:33 And the enemies of God are going to be vanquished
  • 08:36 when Yeshua HaMashiach , Melech Ha-M'lachim , "King of Kings"
  • 08:40 Adonai va'Adonai , "LORD of LORDS"
  • 08:42 returns to this earth to set up his kingdom
  • 08:45 for a thousand years from this very place Israel.
  • 08:55 What lies ahead for Jerusalem?
  • 08:58 This City so precious to God
  • 09:00 has been at the center of Bible History
  • 09:02 for more than 4,000 years.
  • 09:05 And it's future?
  • 09:07 Zola Levitt reveals the answer in this week's resource,
  • 09:10 a booklet entitled "Jerusalem Forever"
  • 09:14 Zola writes about the history of this great City
  • 09:17 and its future for believers.

  • 09:25 Kirsten Hart - For many a trip to the Holy Land
  • 09:27 is the dream of a lifetime.
  • 09:29 The Bible truly comes alive
  • 09:31 as you see the sites where so many Biblical events happened,
  • 09:35 where the teaching is always from a Messianic perspective.
  • 09:39 Come on a Zola Tour in the Spring to see Israel and Petra
  • 09:43 or in the Fall to add a cruise to Greece and Ephesus.
  • 09:47 See the Land of the Bible for yourself.
  • 09:50 Contact us to reserve your Dream of a Lifetime.
  • 09:57 I think the Scripture's very clear when we look at passages
  • 10:01 like Daniel 7:23 for example.
  • 10:04 It talks about the final form of government
  • 10:07 that will exist on the earth just before the return of Jesus
  • 10:11 or Yeshua at the end of the tribulation period.
  • 10:14 And it's very clear there will be a government in place controlled by the anti-Christ.
  • 10:19 And Daniel 7:23 it says
  • 10:25 And sort of the way I look at it is it's an ambition that Satan
  • 10:29 has had ever since the Tower of Babel
  • 10:32 where he in essence prior to God's intervention in Genesis 11
  • 10:38 he was ruling through a man named Nimrod.
  • 10:42 Nimrod's name in Hebrew actually means "rebellion or revolt".
  • 10:46 And Satan was ruling Nimrod
  • 10:48 and Nimrod was ruling what I would call a one-world structure.
  • 10:52 And God disrupted it because of its potential for evil
  • 10:56 through the confounding of the languages.
  • 10:59 And ever since that disruption
  • 11:01 there's always been this Satanic desire to get this system back.
  • 11:05 And Biblical prophecy tells us that it will be restored
  • 11:10 subsequent or after the rapture of the Church
  • 11:13 where Satan once again will rule over a man, and we call him "the Beast" or "the anti-Christ".
  • 11:18 But he will be a Nimrod-type figure
  • 11:21 and he'll govern the whole planet for god.
  • 11:24 And Satan is a great imitator.
  • 11:26 He's always wanted to imitate God.
  • 11:28 And God is going to have His Kingdom on the earth one day that we call the millennium.
  • 11:33 And this would be sort of a replica of it.
  • 11:36 And that's where human history is headed.
  • 11:37 Think about the kings in Europe,
  • 11:39 they had their kingdom and they had their forests.
  • 11:43 And they controlled the forests.
  • 11:45 And of course these kings liked to hunt.
  • 11:48 You know, the aristocracy, the hunting and all.
  • 11:50 And they liked to protect the forests
  • 11:52 and they want to make sure those animals are still there
  • 11:54 so they can go hunting and enjoy them.
  • 11:56 And this was not merely for the sake of hunting and killing
  • 11:58 for the sake that they loved to kill.
  • 12:00 It's also a spiritual exercise.
  • 12:02 And Nimrod of course is the famous hunter before the LORD.
  • 12:05 And they built the Tower of Babel;
  • 12:07 they're going to move everybody in town.
  • 12:09 And then Nimrod owns all the land all around.
  • 12:12 And what's he doing?
  • 12:13 Well he's a famous hero.
  • 12:15 He's killing the animals for people almost like a protector.
  • 12:20 I kind of look at Babylon as the bookends of history.
  • 12:24 In other words, and the Bible's very clear,
  • 12:27 the first world-wide revolt against God
  • 12:32 took place in Shinar which is Hebrew,
  • 12:36 but the Greek name is Mesopotamia.
  • 12:39 "Meso" means "between"
  • 12:42 and people recognize "Potomac" where we get the word "Potamia" between the rivers,
  • 12:46 between the Euphrates and the Tigris.
  • 12:48 And that's where God scattered that rebellion.
  • 12:51 I believe it's Daniel 1:2
  • 12:54 That the children of Israel
  • 12:57 during the 70 year captivity
  • 12:59 were also taken to Shinar.
  • 13:01 So you have Babylon past, way past going back to the Tower of Babel.
  • 13:07 And then it's the exact location where the 70 year deportation happened.
  • 13:11 And then, if I'm understanding
  • 13:14 passages like Zechariah 5:11 correctly
  • 13:16 that's the future area of world-wide revolt.
  • 13:20 And what you see is Babylon is almost a theme if you will.
  • 13:25 It's like a freight train that moves directly through the Bible
  • 13:29 WOW!
  • 13:30 And so if we really want to understand God and the Bible
  • 13:32 we need to focus on the geographical areas that he calls our attention to.
  • 13:36 It is very interesting that that's the part of the world we're all focused on now.
  • 13:39 It is.
  • 13:41 And it's also the part of the world that has the most oil,
  • 13:43 that black gold which is necessary for the economies of the world.
  • 13:47 So I look at Babylon or Babel
  • 13:51 as kind of the bookends of history in that sense.
  • 13:54 There's a couple of clues that I center in on
  • 13:56 when we talk about Babylon.
  • 13:58 It all started in Babylon.
  • 14:00 If you look at the financial conditions that we have today,
  • 14:02 mutual funds, mortgages; a lot of those kinds of concepts.
  • 14:06 They actually came from Babylon way back.
  • 14:09 In fact, today there's all kinds of imprints
  • 14:13 of the Babylon system all over financial markets.
  • 14:16 You know, the hexavigesimal system, how they calculate
  • 14:18 interest rates and that type of thing.
  • 14:21 In Revelation, Babylon is never called a city.
  • 14:25 It's always called "a great city".
  • 14:28 Every time, "a great city"
  • 14:29 So I think it lends itself to the interpretation that it's about a systemic Babylon.
  • 14:36 And that's certainly where we're heading,
  • 14:38 this huge colossus, this edifice that's effused with commercialism.
  • 14:44 Some do believe that we are going to see a one-world currency.
  • 14:47 It's not in the Bible.
  • 14:49 The Bible doesn't say that.
  • 14:52 You know, there's more currencies in the world today than there were 50 years ago.
  • 14:55 It's not like the number of currencies or conversions.
  • 14:59 Going in the opposite direction.
  • 15:00 And quite frankly we don't need a one-world currency.
  • 15:06 So I would suggest that we don't need to wait to see a one-world currency as proof that the
  • 15:12 tribulation period is coming near or any such thing.
  • 15:14 All the big money in the world, all the big capitals,
  • 15:17 corporations, money managers and so forth,
  • 15:19 they already move money around all over the world as if there are no borders,
  • 15:23 with all the conversion instruments and so forth.
  • 15:26 It's been years hasn't it that you know,
  • 15:29 when in Tokyo I can go to a debit machine and get money, wherever I go.
  • 15:35 So in that sense it's already here.
  • 15:37 What is of big interest of course is how do the conditions
  • 15:40 come about that we see depict in Revelation 13:17
  • 15:44 where it says no man can buy or sell.
  • 15:46 How does that happen?
  • 15:48 We first need to have a world of policy makers, financial bankers let's say, central bankers,
  • 15:55 that all adopt the same perspectives,
  • 15:58 same philosophy on the world.
  • 16:00 And that's what we're seeing.
  • 16:01 For example - see the quick one,
  • 16:03 in 1900 there were only 14 central banks in the world.
  • 16:07 Today we have 180.
  • 16:09 You can see how all of this is unified, same kind of approaches
  • 16:12 and we've gotten to a point where many of the monetary
  • 16:15 policies that these central banks are espousing are immoral.
  • 16:18 Second thing that we need at least is the technology if you will,
  • 16:22 the payment system, so that the money system internationally, globally can be seamless,
  • 16:28 can be a closed system.
  • 16:30 Third, you do need an organization internationally
  • 16:35 that can supercede the sovereignty of individual countries,
  • 16:39 individual country policy makers, central banks and that kind of thing.
  • 16:42 These are all centralized.
  • 16:43 And the last thing, we need the anti-Christ to come along
  • 16:46 or at least call it "a political economy"
  • 16:49 that takes all these things and actually puts them in place
  • 16:54 so that condition we see in Revelation 13:17 will happen.
  • 16:59 Satan is not omniscient.
  • 17:02 He's not like God.
  • 17:03 He doesn't know everything.
  • 17:05 And he's not omnipresent, he's not everywhere at the same time.
  • 17:08 So the best way to control the masses, as a limited finite being
  • 17:14 is through a financial system that's numbering or computer oriented.
  • 17:19 And that means that cash has to be marginalized.
  • 17:24 It's very interesting to me that people that traffic or do their transactions in cash today
  • 17:30 are always placed under a cloud of suspicion.
  • 17:33 If you go buy a new car, tell the people there,
  • 17:36 Oh, I've got these 2 suitcases of cash, I'd like to pay for it.
  • 17:40 Well, you're going to get an immediate visitation from the
  • 17:43 IRS, the Department of Homeland Security and whoever else
  • 17:47 because cash is...
  • 17:49 we're moving away from that.
  • 17:51 And to me that's a way to bring in the surveillance society.
  • 17:54 The man of sin, the wicked one, the son of perdition,
  • 17:58 3 of 27 names of the anti-Christ,
  • 18:00 I believe he is alive and well on planet earth.
  • 18:03 I believe he's about to appear at any moment in time.
  • 18:05 And when you look at the European Union, how they're developing,
  • 18:10 how they've become the infrastructure I believe from the revived Roman Empire,
  • 18:14 they're about to come to a place...
  • 18:17 They just called for their own army.
  • 18:19 They've been relying on NATO
  • 18:22 but now the European Union wants to set up they're own army.
  • 18:25 Well that's a step.
  • 18:27 You have the common currency, the Euro,
  • 18:29 now they want they're own army.
  • 18:31 They have a Parliamentary system.
  • 18:33 They're putting together an economic operation there in the European Continent.
  • 18:37 So I believe that's all setting the stage.
  • 18:39 Daniel Chapter 7 says,
  • 18:41 out of those 10 horns comes the little horn
  • 18:43 which is the anti-Christ.
  • 18:45 And I can see everything coming together for that to happen.
  • 18:47 Daniel 11 tells us that the figure who will be the anti-Christ
  • 18:51 is related to a figure in the past
  • 18:55 which is Antiochus IV Epiphanies who was a Seleucid Ruler.
  • 19:00 Godless man, he was imposing Hellenism on the Jews.
  • 19:04 But at the same time it moves beyond him
  • 19:07 and then talks about a man whose god is a god of fortresses.
  • 19:09 So he's a military figure which is very interesting because in
  • 19:13 Islam, they have this idea, the future Imam, the Ahmadi, all of this is coming.
  • 19:20 And yet he is not religious in that sense.
  • 19:25 He doesn't have the God of his fathers.
  • 19:29 I wouldn't make that plural.
  • 19:31 I wouldn't make that a Jewish reference.
  • 19:32 I mean...there's no gods related to him.
  • 19:34 He's...and yet in the end
  • 19:37 2 Thessalonians 2:4 says he's going to exalt himself above all gods or objects of worship.
  • 19:43 And he realizes to unify the world he's going to have to
  • 19:46 have a center for them, some focal point.
  • 19:49 And he's going to have to have them swear allegiance not just to a government
  • 19:52 but to him as something more than a government.
  • 19:55 So he has them body, soul and spirit.
  • 19:56 That's what happens when we come to that point in Revelation 13.
  • 20:00 So I don't think Islam is involved.
  • 20:04 I think Islam will be deceived.
  • 20:06 I think all people of all religions will be deceived.
  • 20:09 So much so that the Bible says that even the elect, the Jewish people, if it were possible
  • 20:15 could be deceived because it's such a great deception bringing in wonders and signs
  • 20:20 and miracles and false prophets and all of these things.
  • 20:23 So God, who understands human nature, understands
  • 20:26 that if one man is given power over planet earth he'll abuse that power.
  • 20:32 And we don't look at humanity the way God looks at it.
  • 20:37 We're influenced by secular thought and we think people are inherently good.
  • 20:41 But God, who knows us better than anyone else, knows that we're tainted by the sin nature.
  • 20:46 And so this idea of dispersing power
  • 20:49 where the nations function kind of as a check and balance system
  • 20:53 is the way you keep things ordered and preserved in a fallen world.
  • 20:58 This future ruler is a military figure.
  • 21:02 Conquers all but 3 kings.
  • 21:05 And so he becomes very successful militarily.
  • 21:08 And I think that in the end whether Islam accepts him as their awaited messiah
  • 21:15 or Jews will accept him in one sense as their long awaited messiah.
  • 21:20 However that's going to be.
  • 21:22 He is going to betray all of them of course
  • 21:24 and proclaim himself as something else.
  • 21:26 But at that point there's going to be a demarcation.
  • 21:30 God will have his people.
  • 21:32 There'll be the people who will follow the anti-Christ.
  • 21:34 And that's a one-way street.
  • 21:36 You don't go back from that.
  • 21:38 That declaration is so significant.
  • 21:41 So the end is going to be that by that point in the tribulation
  • 21:45 God will have the Jewish people secure but persecuted
  • 21:49 and will have the anti-Christ in charge
  • 21:52 but only for a temporary time until Christ comes,
  • 21:55 when Messiah comes and then finishes that kingdom and replaces it with His own.

  • 23:06 What lies ahead for Jerusalem?
  • 23:09 This City so precious to God
  • 23:11 has been at the center of Bible History
  • 23:13 for more than 4,000 years.
  • 23:16 And it's future?
  • 23:18 Zola Levitt reveals the answer
  • 23:19 in this week's resource
  • 23:21 A booklet entitled "Jerusalem Forever".
  • 23:25 Zola writes about the history of this great City
  • 23:28 and it's future for believers
  • 23:31 Call 1-800-WONDERS
  • 23:33 or go to levitt.com
  • 23:37 We're standing in front
  • 23:38 of the Knesset,
  • 23:40 the Israeli Parliament.
  • 23:41 And we pray, as you know,
  • 23:43 we always pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • 23:44 We always pray for a righteous government to be here,
  • 23:47 a government that is submitted to the Word and to the Spirit of God.
  • 23:50 Right across from this Parliament is an incredible Menorah
  • 23:53 that tells the story of Israel's rising and falling
  • 23:56 based on her adherence to the laws of God, to the Word of the LORD.
  • 24:01 It talks about in Genesis 11
  • 24:04 about Nimrod who was not
  • 24:06 under the Spirit or under
  • 24:07 the government of the LORD.
  • 24:09 He was under Satan's inspiration
  • 24:12 He said come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower reaching to heaven.
  • 24:19 He was going against the exact edict that God told him to do.
  • 24:23 He told him to scatter and to multiply.
  • 24:25 And they said no, we want to make a name for ourselves
  • 24:27 and we want to make our own city and we want to make it reach to heaven.
  • 24:31 It kind of reminds me of the I wills of Satan.
  • 24:35 Yeah, Isaiah says in Chapter 14
  • 24:38 that the very character that we see in Nimrod,
  • 24:40 that we see in the world today, comes from Satan himself.
  • 24:43 He says...
  • 24:59 And that is that pride, that rising up and trying to self-govern,
  • 25:03 or govern by independence that God is going to deal with.
  • 25:06 The "I's" we need to be careful of as believers.
  • 25:09 We don't want to be making a name for ourselves
  • 25:12 or going about doing things our own way.
  • 25:14 We want to be like Jesus.
  • 25:16 It said in Luke, "Not my will, by Thy will be done."
  • 25:21 God wants to give us His city.
  • 25:23 He wants to give us the Holy Mountain.
  • 25:25 He wants us to sit with Him in heavenly places.
  • 25:29 but we have to come through the way that He's ordained for us, and that's the cross.
  • 25:33 It's not our exaltation of ourselves but it's our humbling under His mighty hand,
  • 25:39 and He will lift us up.
  • 25:41 So let's agree together today
  • 25:43 that all of us will humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God.
  • 25:47 And we are under His government
  • 25:50 And we will rule with Him in His kingdom to come. Amen?
  • 25:54 Amen!
  • 26:03 You know, Yeshua came first as a Lamb of God.
  • 26:07 The Lamb of God to take away the sins of the world.
  • 26:10 But He is returning
  • 26:11 as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
  • 26:14 He will roar from Heaven
  • 26:16 and those that have ears to hear
  • 26:18 will hear and respond.
  • 26:19 That's right.
  • 26:20 That's why we need to make ourselves ready.
  • 26:22 Believers are getting themselves ready by gathering the oil of the Holy Spirit,
  • 26:26 we're looking up and we're trying to follow the Word
  • 26:29 and keep ourselves unspotted from the world to the best of our ability.
  • 26:33 God is so merciful and forgiving.
  • 26:35 But I would say this is a mystery,
  • 26:37 the Lamb coming to take away the sin
  • 26:39 and then the Ruler coming also.
  • 26:42 The Messiah ben Joseph and Messiah ben David .
  • 26:46 You know, all one.
  • 26:47 But as this one-world government is shaping up
  • 26:50 the solution to that is to be found in the Messiah.
  • 26:53 And that's our prayer for you today.
  • 26:57 Since the time of the Tower of Babel thousands of years ago
  • 27:02 Satan has been trying to attempt oneness with God,
  • 27:05 something that he just can't do.
  • 27:08 And he tries to invent peace
  • 27:10 but it's not Yeshua's peace.
  • 27:12 But the Good News is
  • 27:13 Christ's government is a government of Peace.
  • 27:17 We always love to end this program with
  • 27:18 Sha'alu Shalom Yerushalayim .
  • 27:21 Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.
