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: “New Heaven, New Earth”
Many signs point toward the return of the Messiah: Knowledge has increased, technology is changing rapidly, exiles from the Diaspora are returning to their ancestral homeland, and Messianic congregations multiply throughout the world. Though the Tribulation and Armageddon are coming, so is Yeshua coming for His bride, and we want no one to miss out! We hear from many of our previous guests, including Carl Teichrib, Wilfred Hahn, Avi Lipkin, David Rubin, Bill Koenig, Jimmy DeYoung, Jim Fletcher, Andy Woods, and Randall Price.

Caption transcript for Times of the Signs (2017): “New Heaven, New Earth” (8/8)

  • 00:04 Hi I'm David Hart.
  • 00:05 Welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:07 >>And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:09 Today on our program...
  • 00:10 "Times of the Signs"!
  • 00:12 I'm very excited.
  • 00:13 This is our very last one in the series.
  • 00:14 >>It is.
  • 00:15 >>We've enjoyed it.
  • 00:17 Isaiah 65 tells us "Behold I create new heavens and a new earth".
  • 00:22 >>And we'll discuss the 1,000 year reign of Yeshua,
  • 00:24 the New Jerusalem.
  • 00:26 >>It's going to be a great program!
  • 00:27 Stay with us.
  • 01:27 Shalom and welcome to our program. I'm Myles Weiss
  • 01:30 and I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:31 And we want to welcome you to the finale
  • 01:33 of our series on Times of the Signs.
  • 01:36 We are really there.
  • 01:37 The signs are stacking up as we get ready
  • 01:39 for the Good News to be completed.
  • 01:41 We're going to see a thousand year reign
  • 01:43 of the only righteous King, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach.
  • 01:47 And then God is going to bring
  • 01:49 a new heaven and a new earth into our view.
  • 01:52 It's just phenomenal.
  • 01:53 >>I'm looking forward to that time
  • 01:55 when we will be with Him forever.
  • 01:58 In these days we're looking at so many signs of our Messiah coming.
  • 02:02 There's a touch point where He will return to the Mount of Olives.
  • 02:06 We're going to take you now
  • 02:07 to Jerusalem where Myles opens the Scripture.
  • 02:21 In a matter of hours we travel anywhere in the world
  • 02:23 and technology is so increased
  • 02:26 that it's possible for the Gospel
  • 02:28 to go electronically around the world instantaneously
  • 02:32 and news coming in and out so quickly,
  • 02:34 things changing so rapidly.
  • 02:37 But there is a judgment coming.
  • 02:39 There is a work that God is doing
  • 02:42 to bring man back into full relationship with Himself.
  • 02:46 Even Daniel said...
  • 02:53 So there is a divide coming.
  • 02:56 He said that the wise would shine like the sun.
  • 02:59 And we're living in the day when this is beginning to take on
  • 03:02 more traction as we get closer to the coming of Messiah.
  • 03:07 Listen to this.
  • 03:08 This is the prophet Isaiah
  • 03:10 over 800 years before Yeshua came.
  • 03:32 There is a new heaven and a new earth.
  • 03:35 There is a new Jerusalem coming.
  • 03:37 There seems to be a timeline that's unfolding in our midst.
  • 03:41 There will be 7 years of tribulation.
  • 03:43 There will be a final battle of Armageddon.
  • 03:45 Then there will be a thousand year reign
  • 03:48 after Yeshua comes to win that battle
  • 03:51 he will reign for 1,000 years from this place,
  • 03:53 from Jerusalem
  • 03:55 and we will reign with him.
  • 03:57 At the end of the 1,000 years there will be a final rebellion
  • 04:00 where Satan is loosed
  • 04:02 and those that are determined to follow him will go with him
  • 04:05 and he will be cast into the lake of fire
  • 04:08 and the White Throne judgment will take place
  • 04:10 for those who have followed Satan.
  • 04:12 It's a daunting thing.
  • 04:14 We want our names written in the Lamb's Book of Life
  • 04:17 so we can participate with him in this new heaven and new earth
  • 04:21 You know, often we think about the end of the world
  • 04:23 and the conclusion being some kind of a burning up and a casting away.
  • 04:28 But II Peter 3 says
  • 04:30 that the earth would be renovated, cleansed by fire.
  • 04:33 But that renovation is not destruction.
  • 04:36 It has to do with being laid bare or burned open or cleansed, purified.
  • 04:41 Not unlike the flood of Noah.
  • 04:44 Remember, when God destroyed the world with the flood
  • 04:46 he preserved humanity in an ark.
  • 04:50 And I believe this new Jerusalem is that ark.
  • 04:53 I believe that God is going to renovate, purify, cleanse
  • 04:57 but will preserve and bring us back into a time
  • 05:02 not unlike the Garden of Eden before the fall of man.
  • 05:06 It says in Revelation 21 and Revelation 22
  • 05:10 there will be no more sea.
  • 05:11 What is the sea?
  • 05:12 The sea is salt water.
  • 05:13 Salt retards corruption
  • 05:15 because there will be no corruption in this new heaven and new earth.
  • 05:19 It will be watered by fresh water
  • 05:22 which we see flowing in Revelation 22.
  • 05:25 The fresh water of God
  • 05:27 that waters the entire world.
  • 05:29 Acts 3:19 tells us to repent
  • 05:32 because Yeshua is waiting in heaven
  • 05:35 waiting to bring the times of refreshing
  • 05:37 the times of the restoration of all things
  • 05:40 He's waiting for his Bride.
  • 05:42 And we see that restoration beginning.
  • 05:44 The most notable part of course
  • 05:46 being the restoration of the Land of Israel.
  • 05:49 The people to the Land of Israel from hundreds of nations
  • 05:53 we've been coming back to the Land of Israel
  • 05:55 as prophesied throughout the Tanakh and the B'rit Hadashah .
  • 05:59 We come back to the Land
  • 06:01 and we see the arising of the Messianic remnant within Israel.
  • 06:04 >>That's the sprinkling of the water
  • 06:06 that Ezekiel prophesied.
  • 06:08 The water is being sprinkled
  • 06:10 and the international Bride is arising as well.
  • 06:13 The Land, the people, the remnant of believers
  • 06:17 and the international Bride
  • 06:19 all point to the soon coming of Messiah.
  • 06:22 Think about this.
  • 06:24 40 years ago there were very few Messianic believers anywhere in the world.
  • 06:28 There are now 300 congregations worldwide
  • 06:31 and 100 congregations right here in Israel.
  • 06:35 That is phenomenal growth of a remnant
  • 06:38 that's looking for Messiah.
  • 06:41 So what are we to do?
  • 06:42 How shall we live?
  • 06:44 We need to live for the LORD first.
  • 06:46 Matthew 6:33 says,
  • 06:54 We're to watch and pray
  • 06:56 as I Thessalonians 5:2 tells us.
  • 06:58 Watch and pray for we don't know the hour or the day when the LORD is coming.
  • 07:02 We're to take our stand on the wall as watchmen.
  • 07:06 And we're to occupy the area
  • 07:08 and spread the Kingdom of God
  • 07:10 soul by soul while we are here.
  • 07:12 And of course we're to let our light before men
  • 07:15 even to the working of signs and wonders
  • 07:17 and the greatest miracle of all
  • 07:19 which of course is the healing of the human soul.
  • 07:22 Friends, things are coming that are awesome on the earth
  • 07:26 difficult on the earth.
  • 07:28 But I want you to have hope
  • 07:30 as you read the prophetic Scriptures.
  • 07:32 As you look to Yeshua HaMashiach you can know
  • 07:35 that he is going to create a new heaven and a new earth.
  • 07:39 And there's going to be an incredible season beyond the millennium
  • 07:42 of eternity with God forever.
  • 07:45 Your immortal soul can spend eternity with God
  • 07:49 in the new heaven and new earth that he is creating.
  • 07:52 Make sure your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
  • 08:05 Kirsten - For many a trip to the Holy Land is the dream of a lifetime.
  • 08:10 The Bible truly comes alive as you see the
  • 08:12 sites where so many biblical events happened
  • 08:16 where the teaching is always from a Messianic perspective.
  • 08:19 Come on a Zola Tour in the Spring to see Israel and Petra
  • 08:23 or in the Fall to add a cruise to Greece and Ephesus.
  • 08:27 See the Land of the Bible for yourself.

  • 08:36 Our resource this week...
  • 08:38 the series "Times of the Signs' on DVD.
  • 08:41 Myles and Katharine Weiss encourage believers to
  • 08:44 look beyond the troubling prophetic signs of our day
  • 08:46 and live in growing expectation of our Messiah's return.
  • 08:50 In this 8 program series topics include...
  • 08:58 ...and more.
  • 08:59 Contact us for the DVD series "Times of the Signs".
  • 09:07 As we've been preparing these programs and studying these issues
  • 09:11 I really have seen in the Scriptures
  • 09:13 that God is the God of both / and.
  • 09:15 Let me explain that.
  • 09:16 He wants us to be caught up with him in worship
  • 09:19 and behold his face
  • 09:21 and just be enraptured with who he is in his beauty and his power.
  • 09:25 At the same time he wants us to be aware
  • 09:28 of what's going on around us in the globe
  • 09:30 and with the issues that certainly
  • 09:32 our brothers and sisters are suffering around the world.
  • 09:34 And no matter what state we are in we can be like a Daniel.
  • 09:37 We could be in captivity
  • 09:39 or we could be in a place where we feel marginalized.
  • 09:42 And yet he was brought to be able to be speaking to the king,
  • 09:46 affect the course of nature,
  • 09:49 courses of prophetic unfolding in his time.
  • 09:52 And I believe God has us to be that way too Myles.
  • 09:55 >>That's exactly right.
  • 09:57 So let's go now to hear from some of our experts.
  • 09:59 We have so many great Bible teachers in this series.
  • 10:02 Let's hear from some of them right now.
  • 10:05 I'm a Canadian.
  • 10:06 But I travel to the U.S. a lot.
  • 10:08 And I see a real split in your Country right now.
  • 10:11 A true split between political left verses political right.
  • 10:15 But more than just a split between that.
  • 10:17 A split over even what is truth.
  • 10:19 Questions of morality.
  • 10:21 Questions of ethics.
  • 10:22 What are the values that make your nation?
  • 10:25 What is the values that make western civilization?
  • 10:27 Not just America but the west in general.
  • 10:30 And we have seen a complete change over the last 50 years
  • 10:34 of what the western world looks like.
  • 10:37 I think that one of the greatest challenges...
  • 10:40 I've written a book about that
  • 10:42 called "The End Time Money Snare."
  • 10:44 And that's my biggest concern is that we get so wrapped up in this.
  • 10:48 Our society is so commercialized.
  • 10:51 >>Yes.
  • 10:52 How many advertising impressions do we see every day?
  • 10:55 We can't think anymore, outside that box anymore.
  • 10:59 And for Christians the danger is of them being ensnared.
  • 11:03 Many people don't even want to be raptured anymore
  • 11:06 because they're worried about their portfolios and that kind of thing.
  • 11:10 I'm exaggerating a little bit.
  • 11:12 But that's not where our perspective is supposed to be.
  • 11:15 That's why I think there is a rapture at some point.
  • 11:19 But we must not have our hearts fall prey
  • 11:23 to this environment that we're in right now.
  • 11:26 That's the greatest danger.
  • 11:28 In 2010 I attended the G8 World Religion Summit.
  • 11:32 Now everybody knows about the G8 Political Summit...
  • 11:34 cars burned, there's riots in the streets, the whole bit.
  • 11:39 The camera crew's there.
  • 11:41 But a lot of people don't realize that for the last number of years
  • 11:44 there is a religious summit that it works in parallel.
  • 11:48 2010 I had the opportunity of attending the G8 World religion Summit
  • 11:53 And there we saw the evangelical community,
  • 11:56 mainline Christian denominations,
  • 11:59 a host of Christian institutions,
  • 12:02 church denominations and associations
  • 12:05 working hand in hand with other faiths around the world.
  • 12:10 Islam, Hinduism, the Bahais were there.
  • 12:14 The lists of other religions was long.
  • 12:17 And I'm going to say "we" because I was there as an observer.
  • 12:20 We all came together searching for social justice, world peace
  • 12:26 and the acknowledgement that we can all get along
  • 12:28 and work cooperatively for a global ethic.
  • 12:31 And what I found striking was there were a number of occasions
  • 12:36 where the exclusivity of Jesus Christ
  • 12:40 could have been on the tips of their tongues,
  • 12:42 especially the evangelical Christians,
  • 12:44 and nobody would say, nobody would bring up the fact
  • 12:49 that there is an exclusive truth claim
  • 12:51 that separates Christianity from the rest of the religious world
  • 12:54 and that is Jesus Christ.
  • 12:56 In fact, quite the opposite.
  • 12:58 Many times we would hear statements that we're all brothers and sisters,
  • 13:00 it does not matter what religion we are.
  • 13:02 We are all moving to the same mountain top called God.
  • 13:05 All religions have equal validity.
  • 13:07 There is no real one path to God.
  • 13:11 That type of language all the time.
  • 13:14 And here we have a very strong, at least at that event I was at,
  • 13:18 a very strong Christian presence who not just remained silent
  • 13:23 but were actively engaged in working towards the idea of
  • 13:27 yes, we need global management,
  • 13:29 yes we need a global taxation regime,
  • 13:32 yes we need to embrace equal spirituality
  • 13:34 and have a new gospel of green.
  • 13:38 I was biting my tongue.
  • 13:40 I wanted to just..
  • 13:41 come on people, come on Christians
  • 13:43 get your head out of this game and get it back into the Biblical game.
  • 13:47 Is it as simple as
  • 13:50 we ought to fear God more than man?
  • 13:51 Or just the people fear of man gone wild?
  • 13:54 Fear of God is gone and the fear of man is rampant.
  • 13:58 And so we want to make sure that the world embraces us.
  • 14:01 We want the world to love us.
  • 14:03 >>I believe this sad news regarding that
  • 14:06 is that it's taking place in the pulpits across America.
  • 14:09 Absolutely, it is across the western world.
  • 14:11 In America, my country Canada, we will sacrifice truth on the altar of peace.
  • 14:17 Israel and America are not two.
  • 14:20 Israel and America are one.
  • 14:22 We have the same God, the same Bible,
  • 14:24 Messiah is a Jew from Israel
  • 14:26 and all the greatness of America comes from its Christianity.
  • 14:30 I'm a Jew and I'm saying all of America's greatness comes from its Christianity.
  • 14:34 And I've said this I think on Zola Levitt programs
  • 14:37 whether it was with Zola, rest in peace
  • 14:39 or Sandra, or Jeffrey, or you
  • 14:41 is that America without Christianity is nothing.
  • 14:47 And I'm ready to give my life for a Christian revival in America
  • 14:51 because America has to be Christian.
  • 14:53 There is no other country in the world that can be number one
  • 14:56 accept for America as a Christian country.
  • 14:59 Contrary to the trend in western civilization
  • 15:04 which is gradually moving away from a Biblical connection
  • 15:10 Israel is moving towards a stronger Biblical connection.
  • 15:13 People are getting married younger,
  • 15:16 they're having bigger families,
  • 15:18 there is a thirst in Israel
  • 15:21 to learn about Israel's Biblical roots.
  • 15:24 >>Yes.
  • 15:26 Even in the communities that you would think are the most secular
  • 15:30 there is a thirst to connect to the Biblical roots.
  • 15:33 >>Amazing.
  • 15:34 So that process is taking place
  • 15:36 and there's a parallel process
  • 15:37 which is the repossession of the land
  • 15:39 that's been happening ever since the early part of the 20th century
  • 15:45 or the later part of the 19th century.
  • 15:49 >>It's happening, it is happening.
  • 15:52 But until we have re-conquered, repossessed
  • 15:57 the Biblical heartland of Israel
  • 15:59 we won't get to the point where we really have Jerusalem
  • 16:03 and where God's Kingdom will be re-established on earth
  • 16:07 and the Messiah will come, right?
  • 16:10 Or as Christians would say, come back
  • 16:12 and re-establish his Kingdom on earth.
  • 16:16 This is a very significant opportunity in time
  • 16:19 to share Yeshua with Jews, with Gentiles, with Arabs,
  • 16:26 whoever the LORD puts in front of you.
  • 16:28 Isn't it amazing that this tiny little country the size of New Jersey
  • 16:33 is the focus of the world
  • 16:35 as if it's a key to middle east peace
  • 16:37 and if it's a key to world peace.
  • 16:39 But the God of Israel designed it that way.
  • 16:42 These are markers.
  • 16:43 We follow the final day markers
  • 16:46 that the Jewish prophets spoke of in the Tanakh.
  • 16:49 >>Yes.
  • 16:49 So news being fulfilled
  • 16:55 and our Messiah's coming soon
  • 16:57 so let's be busy sharing the Gospel with those the LORD puts in front of us.
  • 17:03 You know I don't ignore the differences
  • 17:07 between Jews and Christians.
  • 17:09 There are theological differences
  • 17:11 that can't be ignored.
  • 17:13 And you know, the question about the Messiah.
  • 17:16 Will the Messiah be coming back
  • 17:18 or will the Messiah be coming?
  • 17:21 Okay, because as you know
  • 17:23 there are some slight theological differences there.
  • 17:25 >>Slight.
  • 17:27 But I have no doubt that when that prophecy is fulfilled from the Book of Isaiah
  • 17:34 that we are all going to be there together praying on God's Holy Mountain.
  • 17:38 And it may well be that if the Christians are right
  • 17:43 in that theological difference of opinion
  • 17:47 that we Jews are all going to be standing there on God's Holy Mountain...
  • 17:53 We're all going to be standing there on God's Holy Mountain
  • 17:56 and I'll probably be praying like this.
  • 18:00 But if we Jews are right, then all the Christians
  • 18:04 are going to be there with us praying on God's Holy Mountain
  • 18:08 and we'll all be praying like this.
  • 18:11 Okay, but we will be praying together.
  • 18:14 And there's no question about that
  • 18:15 because we know that God's prophecies are for today,
  • 18:19 they are real, and they are going to be happy.

  • 19:01 Hi, my name is Belinda Moon
  • 19:03 and I'm a 2nd generation
  • 19:05 contributor to Zola Levitt Ministries.
  • 19:07 My parents supported the ministry
  • 19:09 and I found it when Myles and Kathryn came on board.
  • 19:12 Through their teaching I have learned a lot
  • 19:14 about the Bible and why it's important to me to stand with Israel.
  • 19:18 Please join me in supporting this ministry
  • 19:26 This really is an overview of this series
  • 19:29 really essentially it's about faith, hope and love isn't it?
  • 19:32 We see so many times of the signs unfolding
  • 19:35 the difficulties coming on the earth
  • 19:37 but really God is a God of love.
  • 19:40 And we asked some of our interviewees, our guests
  • 19:42 we asked them, what motivates you?
  • 19:44 What gives you hope as the times of the signs unfold?
  • 19:47 Let's go to those interviews right now.
  • 19:51 You know, Paul said to Titus
  • 19:53 in the 2nd chapter of the Book of Titus,
  • 19:55 Lay aside ungodliness and worldly lust;
  • 19:57 live soberly, Godly and righteously.
  • 19:59 I can almost hear Titus turning to Paul and say, How do I do that?
  • 20:02 How do I live right and put aside ungodly things?
  • 20:06 Paul responded, looking for the blessed hope
  • 20:10 and the glorious appearing of our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ.
  • 20:13 And I believe Myles, that's what gives me the hope.
  • 20:16 I'm anticipating the shout out of the heavenlies
  • 20:20 for Jesus to call us up into the heavens
  • 20:24 to be with Him at the rapture of the Church.
  • 20:26 And everything that we see happening on the world scene today
  • 20:30 is setting the stage for that to happen.
  • 20:33 And it seems to indicate that could happen at any moment.
  • 20:37 I would encourage people to not miss
  • 20:40 the prophetic angle in advocating for Israel.
  • 20:42 There are a lot of great organizations that advocate for Israel
  • 20:45 But when we detach the prophetic angle
  • 20:48 we're missing a big part of the puzzle.
  • 20:50 And so I would encourage people to embrace
  • 20:52 the teaching of predictive prophecy from the Bible.
  • 20:55 The Scriptures are alive
  • 20:56 and the Scriptures tell us
  • 20:58 that we are entering an age, a time period
  • 21:00 where the world will hate us.
  • 21:02 And it hated Christ and therefore it will hate
  • 21:05 us who put our faith and trust in Christ.
  • 21:07 But at the same time be of good cheer
  • 21:09 because He did overcome the world.
  • 21:11 And that is who we place our faith and trust in.
  • 21:14 And even the anti-Christ's system of the last days
  • 21:18 will only have it's hay day for a very short period of time.
  • 21:21 If I'm understanding my Bible right, only about 42 months.
  • 21:25 And the good news of the whole thing though
  • 21:27 is that the crumbling kingdom of the anti-Christ
  • 21:31 is going to be replaced by the Kingdom of Yeshua .
  • 21:34 That's that Stone cut without human hands in Daniel 2
  • 21:38 that grows and grows and grows and fills the whole earth.
  • 21:42 And right now even as I'm speaking, you can transfer
  • 21:45 your citizenship from one kingdom to another.
  • 21:49 And we do that simply by placing are personal faith or trust
  • 21:53 in this man Jesus Christ or Yeshua
  • 21:56 who entered our world and paid the penalty
  • 21:59 for our sins through His death on the cross
  • 22:02 and proved who He was
  • 22:04 through His bodily resurrection from the dead.
  • 22:06 So to the listener that's running out of hope
  • 22:08 I would say put your trust in Jesus alone.
  • 22:11 And as you do that you just altered your eternal destiny.
  • 22:15 Your whole Kingdom citizenship has been transferred.
  • 22:20 I think for me I came to a place where I realized
  • 22:23 when the covenant was made with Abraham
  • 22:26 it was made not just for Abraham and the Jewish people,
  • 22:29 it was made for all people that the hope of the nations
  • 22:33 as it says, "in You all the families of the earth will be blessed."
  • 22:38 I realize that to support Israel,
  • 22:40 to understand God's program and plan for the Jewish people
  • 22:43 is to understand Him, to understand why He came
  • 22:46 and in the incarnation took upon Himself Jewish flesh.
  • 22:52 And took upon Himself
  • 22:53 identity with the seed of Abraham and the house of David.
  • 22:57 And then it was so clear that he came to bring salvation to His people
  • 23:04 but also them to bring salvation to all
  • 23:06 who through His people came to understand the true Messiah.
  • 23:10 And in that is the hope of the world
  • 23:13 because He's coming again.
  • 23:14 And when He comes again He's going to establish a Kingdom
  • 23:17 the thing that all people hope for, all people long for.
  • 23:20 Real peace on earth.
  • 23:22 Real justice with real peace.
  • 23:24 One who is going to rule.
  • 23:26 And Israel which is now reduced in size,
  • 23:29 downtrodden, persecuted,
  • 23:31 maligned throughout the world
  • 23:32 is going to be made the Head and not the tail.
  • 23:34 You'll see how God changes all things.
  • 23:37 And the nations will be aligned in the proper way.
  • 23:40 And we're going to see the kind of rule and the kind of love
  • 23:45 and the kind of unity that has never existed before
  • 23:48 but will exist here on this earth by the One who is able to bring that to pass.
  • 23:52 It starts first with a relationship with Him.
  • 23:55 I found that myself as I put my trust in Him as my own personal Savior.
  • 24:00 And now my hope and expectation is to see Him soon as he returns
  • 24:04 Just as He promised.
  • 24:10 You know the times of the signs
  • 24:12 can be very serious and daunting
  • 24:14 but it's really a hopeful story isn't it?
  • 24:17 Well that's the last thing that Yeshua did when He left this earth.
  • 24:20 He said, you will have tribulation but let not your heart be troubled
  • 24:24 I have gone before you to prepare a place.
  • 24:28 And we have to remember that,
  • 24:30 that God has a place that we're all going to.
  • 24:33 The New Jerusalem.
  • 24:35 You know the word "Jerusalem" is a compound word " Yerushalayim" .
  • 24:39 And the heavenly Jerusalem is coming down
  • 24:42 to meet with the earthly Jerusalem.
  • 24:44 And God Himself will be the Light thereof.
  • 24:48 And in this place there will be no more crying,
  • 24:52 no more sorrow, no more trial
  • 24:54 because He Himself will wipe away every tear.
  • 24:57 You know we have to look to that heavenly country
  • 25:00 like the people did in Hebrews.
  • 25:02 They pressed past the pain of this earth
  • 25:06 because they knew they were on a journey to go beyond.
  • 25:10 And that's where we're going too.
  • 25:12 We have a heavenly country.
  • 25:13 We have a new Jerusalem, a new City,
  • 25:16 a City of Glory that we're all going to.
  • 25:19 We're going too.
  • 25:20 And I believe that each of us probably have like a longing inside of us
  • 25:24 of something that we don't even know what that is.
  • 25:27 And that longing is for the Garden of Eden
  • 25:31 and for the Golden Age to be restored.
  • 25:34 For all things to be brought back together under Him,
  • 25:38 under Jesus our Messiah.
  • 25:41 And He Himself will be our peace.
  • 25:43 We have this brokenness from the fall of man
  • 25:47 but God is going to restore all of us who say "yes" to Him
  • 25:51 to a place that is like the Garden of Eden
  • 25:54 and possibly even more glorious
  • 25:56 because it will have no corruption in it at all.
  • 25:59 The fall will be over and the restoration will be complete.
  • 26:02 We'll know those loved ones that have gone before us.
  • 26:06 Everything that we partake of in this earth that is good
  • 26:10 will be magnified in this heavenly Jerusalem,
  • 26:12 in this heavenly place that we're going to.
  • 26:15 And we do not want one of you to be left out.
  • 26:18 And so remember, do not be afraid,
  • 26:21 do not be a coward, do not shrink back in these times
  • 26:24 for God Himself will give us the strength, the hope, the peace,
  • 26:28 the faith that we need to persevere.
  • 26:31 And He Himself will fulfill all of the Feasts with the Trump of God
  • 26:35 And He Himself will call us home
  • 26:38 and then come again and Tabernacle with man.
  • 26:46 >>Well Kirsten, I can't believe this is the
  • 26:47 last program of this great series "Times of the Signs"

  • 26:52 Isn't that wonderful?
  • 26:53 >>It's such an honor that we had him
  • 26:55 here on Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 26:56 >>Yes, can you tell me a take away that you had from this series?
  • 26:59 >>Honestly, I think the word for the whole series for me
  • 27:02 has been "hope",
  • 27:04 that we don't give up.
  • 27:05 I know these are the last days of the "Last Days.
  • 27:08 And the signs are coming but
  • 27:10 so is our King of Kings and our Lord of Lords.
  • 27:13 Yeshua is coming back.
  • 27:14 And that's the Good News that we have to bring.
  • 27:16 >>That is.
  • 27:17 This is the prayer that we love to end our program with,
  • 27:19 Sha a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:21 >>Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.
