Caption transcript for “Zola’s Testimony,” Part 2

  • 00:09 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.
  • 00:15 THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GENTILE,
  • 00:18 FOR THE SAME LORD OVERALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:28 CONSIDERING THE TIMES AND SEASONS OF OUR WORLD TODAY, HERE'S ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 00:33 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:36 I WAS MAKING A TESTIMONY PROGRAM THAT YOU SAW LAST WEEK AND I'LL CONTINUE THIS WEEK.
  • 00:42 I'LL GIVE YOU A REPORT ON THIS CANCER THAT'S TROUBLING ME.
  • 00:45 IT'S NOT REALLY TROUBLING ME THAT MUCH.
  • 00:48 THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS.
  • 00:49 AS YOU CAN SEE I'M NOT GETTING THIN OR LOSING HAIR.
  • 00:52 I'M TAKING THE TREATMENTS AND THE RADIATION AND CHEMOTHERAPY
  • 00:58 AND IT COULD BE THAT I MAY PROSPER ON THIS, SOME PEOPLE DO.
  • 01:03 COULD BE THAT THE LORD WANTS TO HAVE A MAGNIFICENT HEALING.
  • 01:07 THAT'S FINE WITH ME.
  • 01:08 COULD BE HE WANTS TO TAKE ME RIGHT HOME.
  • 01:10 THAT'S ALSO FINE WITH ME.
  • 01:12 I'VE JUST ALWAYS DONE WHAT HE TELLS ME TO DO.
  • 01:14 I'VE LEARNED LONG AGO, LIKE I SAID LAST WEEK, THERE'S NO POINT IN ARGUING.
  • 01:18 HE KNOWS THE PLAN.
  • 01:20 HE'S GOT SOMETHING WORKED OUT AND IF YOU JUST FOLLOW HIM, YOU GET TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
  • 01:28 I MENTIONED CAMPUS CRUSADE EARLIER, THEY REALLY WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR MY SALVATION.
  • 01:32 I USED TO TELL A STORY OF WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING ALONG THE ROAD AND IT'S FOR EVERYBODY,
  • 01:38 YOU SEE A HITCHHIKER, MOST PEOPLE IGNORE THE HITCHHIKER.
  • 01:44 SOME PEOPLE SEE THAT IT'S JESUS.
  • 01:46 HE'S STANDING BY THE ROAD, THEY PASS HIM BY.
  • 01:50 THOUGH ANOTHER GROUP THINKS IT'S AN INTERESTING LOOKING MAN OR THAT IS JESUS CHRIST
  • 01:57 OR, MY GOODNESS,I'D LOVE TO MEET HIM AND THEY PULL OVER AND HE GETS IN THE CAR
  • 02:03 AND THEN THEY DRIVE AND THEY TALK TO HIM AND THEY LISTEN TO HIM AND MAYBE THEY'RE SAVED.
  • 02:10 IT'S STILL NOT THE BEST WAY.
  • 02:13 THE BEST WAY IS PULL OVER, GET OUT, LET HIM DRIVE AND THEN YOU GO STRAIGHT TO THE KINGDOM.
  • 02:20 EXCUSE ME, THIS DOES AFFECT MY VOICE TIME AND AGAIN,
  • 02:23 BECAUSE THE CANCER IS OVER IN THIS SIDE
  • 02:25 AND IT KIND OF PULLS DOWN ON THE VOCAL CORD ON THE LEFT,
  • 02:28 THAT'S WHAT THEY EXPLAINED AND THEY GET OUT OF BALANCE.
  • 02:30 I'M SORRY FOR THAT BECAUSE I'VE ALWAYS HAD A GOOD RADIO OR TV VOICE, I GUESS.
  • 02:34 PEOPLE LIKED IT AND I SUPPOSE IT'S STILL ALRIGHT,
  • 02:37 BUT, I'VE DONE SHOWS WITH COLDS THAT SOUND WORSE THAN THIS.
  • 02:40 KEN BROUGHT THESE GIANT BOOKS. I DID NOT UNDERSTAND, ONE PAGE PER PROGRAM.
  • 02:49 LOOK HOW MUCH WE'VE DONE. IT'S INCREDIBLE. I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.
  • 02:54 ANDY ROONEY WAS BRAGGING ONE NIGHT ABOUT HOW MANY 60 SECOND SPOTS HE DID ON 60 MINUTES,
  • 03:04 INSULTING CHRISTIANS AND SO ON AND CALLING US IGNORANT AND SO ON.
  • 03:07 BUT, HE PROUDLY DISPLAYED IT ON 48 HOURS OR WHATEVER IT WAS.
  • 03:12 WE'VE DONE 725 HOURS SOMETHING LIKE THAT ON TELEVISION AND THE DIFFERENCE IS
  • 03:19 WE DIDN'T GET IT FREE AND THIS HAS TO BE SUPPORTED BY ITS VIEWERS.
  • 03:22 WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A CHURCH, WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING.
  • 03:24 WE JUST HAVE YOU AND YOU ARE SOMETHING TO HAVE, I'M TELLING YOU.
  • 03:28 YOU HAVE MADE AN EMPIRE OUT OF THIS LITTLE TINY MINISTRY
  • 03:32 THAT STARTED WITH SHARING A DESKTOP WITH MY SON.
  • 03:38 I LEFT OFF LAST WEEK AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 80'S
  • 03:43 BECAUSE EACH DECADE THE LORD WOULD SLAM A DOOR AND OPEN ANOTHER ONE
  • 03:47 AND NOW IT'S SONGS AND TOURS AND STUFF LIKE THAT AND I JUST SORT OF HAD TO LEARN A NEW BUSINESS,
  • 03:55 BESIDES, I WAS NOT A TOUR LEADER PARTICULARLY, BUT I LOVED ISRAEL
  • 03:58 AND I MADE SURE PEOPLE HEARD THE PLACE AND WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND WHAT HAPPENED WHERE.
  • 04:04 AND I STARTED TO WEAR A ROBE AND MAKE A PROGRAM
  • 04:08 WITH THE APPROPRIATE OUTFIT FOR THE OCCASION.
  • 04:14 I REMEMBER WE WENT TO MT. CARMEL AND I DRESSED UP LIKE ISAIAH
  • 04:18 AND LOOKING FOR A CLOUD COMING OVER THE LAND.
  • 04:22 IT'S IDEAS LIKE THAT, UP IN THE SEA OF GALILEE I REMEMBER I MADE A PROGRAM WITH,
  • 04:28 I CAN'T REMEMBER IF WE LOST OUR COSTUMES.
  • 04:32 WE HAD FAIRLY FANCY COSTUMES.
  • 04:33 WE HAD TO GRAB SOMETHING QUICK AND SORT A ROBE-TYPE OF COSTUME THAT TIED ON
  • 04:39 AND I STOOD IN A BOAT THAT WAS MOORED OFF THE SHORE
  • 04:43 AND I SAID TO A FRIEND OF MINE, DID YOU SEE THE SHOW?
  • 04:46 YAH, AND HE SAID, IT MADE ME A LITTLE NAUSEOUS
  • 04:49 BECAUSE THERE YOU ARE IN YOUR BATHROBE WAVING BACK AND FORTH, IT WAS HARD TO WATCH.
  • 04:54 WHO KNEW?
  • 04:55 I HAD SUCH ADVENTURES OUT THERE.
  • 04:57 THERE WAS A TIME WHEN WE STOPPED TO MOVE OUR CAMERAS, 20 MINUTES THAT WHAT IT TAKES.
  • 05:03 WE WERE AT A MOORED BOAT AND WE HAD ONE BACKGROUND OF THE SEA
  • 05:08 AND WE DECIDED TO MOVE THE CAMERAS OVER AND HAVE A DIFFERENT BACKGROUND.
  • 05:11 WELL, I PROVED THE POINT OF THE GOSPEL WHERE THE SUDDEN STORM COMES UP,
  • 05:15 BECAUSE IN 20 MINUTES THERE WERE SUCH WINDS THAT OUR BOAT,
  • 05:21 WHICH WAS SOLIDLY ANCHORED ON THE SHORE,
  • 05:24 TORE OUT AT THE ANCHOR AND WENT OUT TO SEA, JUST WENT AWAY.
  • 05:27 WE HAD TO HIRE A GUY WITH A SPECIAL TRACTOR THAT THROWS OUT A BIG CHAIN
  • 05:33 AND RESCUES PEOPLE'S BOATS AND ANOTHER TIME I WAS FILMING
  • 05:39 AND THE BOAT STARTED TO LEAVE THE SHORE, JUST NO BIG WIND OR ANYTHING,
  • 05:43 IT JUST STARTED TO DRIFT OUT TO SEA.
  • 05:45 I KEPT ADJUSTING THE CAMERA, NO PROBLEM.
  • 05:49 WE'LL GET ANOTHER TALENT, BUT LET'S NOT MISS THIS SHOT.
  • 05:53 I SEE EVERYBODY'S FOLLOWING ME, FOLLOWING ME.
  • 05:56 PRETTY SOON IT BECAME OBVIOUS I WAS GOING ALL THE WAY TO SYRIA
  • 05:59 AND SO THEY GOT THE OWNER OF THE BOAT,
  • 06:04 WELL, I TRIED TO START THE THING, BUT THERE'S A FEW TRICKS TO THAT
  • 06:07 AND I DIDN'T KNOW HOW AND HE SWAM OUT FROM THE SHORE,
  • 06:10 A PRETTY GOOD SWIM AND JUMPED IN THE BOAT, STARTED IT UP AND FINALLY RESCUED ME.
  • 06:15 I SAY SYRIA BECAUSE THEY WERE STILL OVER THERE IN THE HEIGHTS
  • 06:21 AND WEREN'T FRIENDLY AND I DIDN'T WANT TO SEE THEM.
  • 06:26 BUT, ANYWAY, THE TOURS WENT ON THROUGH THE 80'S WITH SUCH STRENGTH.
  • 06:30 PEOPLE BELIEVED ME THAT THEY COULD GO AND IT WOULD BE SAFE AND OF COURSE IT'S SAFE.
  • 06:37 THE STUPIDITY OF OUR MEDIA.
  • 06:39 I CAN'T FIND WORDS WHY THESE PEOPLE SIT HERE
  • 06:42 AND DECIDE TO PICK OUT A PERFECTLY ORGANIZED AND SAFE DEMOCRACY
  • 06:47 AND DECIDE TO DESCRIBE IT AS "WAR TORN" OR SOMETHING.
  • 06:49 IT'S RIDICULOUS.
  • 06:51 IT'S FAR SAFER THAN THE UNITED STATES, ANY PLACE IN ISRAEL
  • 06:54 IS FAR SAFER THAN ANY PLACE HERE OF AN EQUAL POPULATION.
  • 06:57 I'VE PROVED IT A HUNDRED TIMES.
  • 06:59 WASHINGTON D.C. BY ITSELF IS 10 TIMES AS DANGEROUS TO VISIT AS JERUSALEM.
  • 07:04 ANYWAY, I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE BECAUSE THERE WAS NO WAY COULD GET AROUND THE MEDIA.
  • 07:08 NOWADAYS THERE IS, YOU HAVE FOX NEWS, YOU HAVE A FEW PEOPLE THAT ARE TELLING THE TRUTH,
  • 07:12 BUT, I QUIT READING AND WATCHING ALL THE REST OF THE-
  • 07:17 I TOOK A TOUR DURING THE GULF WAR, I HAD A TOUR SCHEDULED,
  • 07:23 I DIDN'T THINK THAT MUCH OF SADDAM HUSSEIN'S MISSILES AND THEY WEREN'T MUCH.
  • 07:29 THE SCRIPTURE ITSELF SAYS DO NOT FEAR THE ARROWS AND THE KING OF BABYLON.
  • 07:37 I HAD 37 OR SO PEOPLE SIGN UP, NOT A BIG TOUR,
  • 07:40 BUT, TELL YOU WHAT, THOSE PEOPLE HAD THE TOUR OF A LIFETIME BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WOULD COME.
  • 07:46 CERTAINLY NOT THE JEWS, THE AMERICAN JEWS ARE NOT MUCH HELP FOR ISRAEL
  • 07:51 AND THEY SURE DON'T GO IF THERE'S ANY CHANCE THEY'LL GET IN TROUBLE.
  • 07:55 BUT, THERE WAS NO TROUBLE AND THESE PEOPLE GOT A WONDERFUL REWARD
  • 07:59 BECAUSE THEIR AIRPLANE WAS GOING TO LAND IN TEL AVIV AND THAT'S WHERE THE MISSILES WERE FALLING,
  • 08:04 THERE WAS PEACE ARRANGED ABOUT 2 DAYS BEFORE THEY GOT THERE.
  • 08:09 SO, THEY DIDN'T EVEN HAVE ANY THREATS AND WE GOT THERE ON THE GROUND
  • 08:14 AND WE WENT TO EMPTY HOTELS, EMPTY RESTAURANTS, FRONT SEATS, WINDOW VIEWS.
  • 08:20 I MEAN, GRATEFUL ISRAELIS STANDING WHEN WE WALK IN A PLACE, WHAT A WONDERFUL TIME,
  • 08:28 WHAT A NICE REWARD FOR THESE PEOPLE.
  • 08:30 I REMEMBER WE WENT INTO A SEAFOOD RESTAURANT NEAR CAESAREA
  • 08:34 AND THE OWNER WALKED UP TO MY GUIDE, ASKED HIM SOMETHING IN HEBREW AND HE TOLD HIM
  • 08:41 AND I SAID, WHAT DID HE SAY, YOSSI, HE SAID, HE LOOKED AT THE TOURIST,
  • 08:45 HE SAID WHERE DID YOU CATCH THEM, LIKE FISH, YOU KNOW.
  • 08:50 THEY'RE VERY LIKE FISH, THEY'RE CHRISTIANS.
  • 08:54 WE HAD SO MUCH FUN, DRIVING AROUND WITH THE TOUR AND WE ALWAYS TOOK TIME FOR TV,
  • 08:59 WE HAD A VAN THAT WE DROVE WITH AN ISRAELI CREW.
  • 09:02 I REMEMBER THE DAY, I TAKE NOTES IN A LITTLE POCKET NOTEBOOK AND I'M TRYING TO WRITE
  • 09:08 AND THE DRIVER KEEPS ON HITTING RUTS IN THE ROAD,
  • 09:11 I FINALLY SAID, YORAM, PLEASE, I CAN'T WRITE, CAN'T DO ANYTHING HERE,
  • 09:16 FIND A SMOOTHER ROAD OR SOMETHING.
  • 09:20 HE SAID, PLEASE, PLEASE FORGIVE ME.
  • 09:22 I SAID, I FORGIVE YOU, OK.
  • 09:25 AND HE GOT ON SOME SMOOTHER ROAD AND I STARTED TO WRITE AGAIN
  • 09:28 AND I HEARD A VOICE IN THE BACK OF VAN, MY PRODUCER, DANNY, SAID,
  • 09:32 HE FORGIVE HIM, BUT HE WRITES IT DOWN.
  • 09:37 IT'S A VERY ISRAELI MENTALITY.
  • 09:42 DAVID AND ZVI JOINED US, TREMENDOUS MEN,
  • 09:47 DAVID MINAY IS THE BEST BUS DRIVER IN THE WORLD
  • 09:50 AND HE IS SO CALM, SO PEACEFUL, IT'S FUNNY, I TOLD HIM A JOKE ONE DAY,
  • 09:57 A PERSON GOES TO THE PSYCHIATRIST, HE SAYS, DOCTOR,
  • 10:00 PEOPLE DON'T LISTEN TO ME WHEN I TALK TO THEM.
  • 10:02 THE DOCTOR SAYS "NEXT".
  • 10:04 HE LAUGHED, BUT THEN A CAR CUT IN FRONT OF THE BUS, HE HIT THE BRAKE,
  • 10:09 HE NEVER HIT ANYTHING WITH A BUS, BUT CARS ARE ALWAYS CUTTING HIM OUT AND HE YELLS, "NEXT".
  • 10:16 HE SAID THIS HAPPENED TO ME 100 TIMES A DAY, IT'S GOOD JOKE, "NEXT, NEXT".
  • 10:20 THESE MEN ARE TREMENDOUS.
  • 10:23 ZVI, OUR CHIEF GUIDE, VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, ARMY OFFICER, A TANK COMMANDER, A POLICEMAN,
  • 10:33 A LIFE OF DEFENDING HIS COUNTRY, A NATIVE BORN ISRAELI AND SO FULL OF KNOWLEDGE.
  • 10:40 HE WAS HANDY FOR WHEN I WOULD INTERVIEW ARABS, FEISEL HUSSEINI OR HANAN ASHRAWI
  • 10:48 AND HE WOULD STRAIGHTEN UP THE LIES.
  • 10:50 I MEAN, I'M BEING LIED TO MY FACE AND IT WAS REALLY STUPID LIES SOMETIMES,
  • 10:54 BUT, VIRTUALLY NEVER THE TRUTH AND HUSSEINI TOLD ME SOME YARN ABOUT THE JEWS
  • 11:01 TORE INTO A MOSQUE IN JAFFA, HE HAPPENED TO PICK ZVI'S HOMETOWN, JAFFA, SOUTH OF TEL AVIV,
  • 11:09 THEY TORE OUT THE FIXTURES AND THEY TURNED IT INTO A NIGHT CLUB.
  • 11:14 HE WANTED TO GET THAT ON TV, SO I CHECKED IT WITH ZVI.
  • 11:17 ZVI SAID, NO, NO, THAT WAS A TURKISH BATH, FOR CENTURIES IT STOOD THERE.
  • 11:23 IT WAS BUILT LIKE A MOSQUE SO THAT WAS THE JOKE, I'M GOING TO GO OVER INTO THE MOSQUE AND PRAY
  • 11:31 AND YOU REALLY WENT OVER THERE AND HAD A BATH.
  • 11:33 IT NEVER WAS A MOSQUE, ONLY A TURKISH BATH,
  • 11:37 BUT, ARAFAT'S REPRESENTATIVE FOR JERUSALEM WAS NOT ABOVE TELLING THIS AWFUL LIE.
  • 11:42 THE JEWS HAVE NEVER TOUCHED A MOSQUE OF ANY KIND AND NEVER WILL.
  • 11:46 THEY PROTECT THEM WITH THEIR SOLDIERS, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE.
  • 11:50 IT'S A LONG STORY, I KNOW IT IS, BUT SO MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED
  • 11:57 AND I JUST WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU SO, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,
  • 12:00 I'M GOING TO TAKE A BREAK AND CLEAR MY THROAT
  • 12:03 AND I'LL BE BACK WITH YOU RIGHT AFTER THIS.
  • 12:25 I'VE KNOWN ZOLA SINCE MY DAYS IN DALLAS THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY.
  • 12:29 I WENT THERE IN 1958 TO 1962
  • 12:33 AND I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GOOD FRIENDS WITH ZOLA
  • 12:38 AND OVER THE YEARS MY RESPECT HAS JUST GROWN MORE AND MORE FOR HIM ALL THE TIME.
  • 12:45 I BELIEVE THAT HE IS ONE OF THE GREAT AND POWERFUL VOICES FOR THE PROPHETIC WORD
  • 12:53 FOR ACCURACY IN THE PROPHETIC WORD AND ALSO HE HAS BEEN ONE OF THE LEADERS
  • 13:01 AT KEEPING PEOPLE FOCUSED ON THE FACT ISRAEL IS GOD'S PEOPLE
  • 13:07 AND THAT WE HAS CHRISTIANS NEED TO REALIZE THAT THE COVENANTS MADE WITH ABRAHAM,
  • 13:11 ISAAC AND JACOB AND THEIR DESCENDANTS ARE STILL ABSOLUTELY BINDING.
  • 13:16 SO, IT'S WITH GREAT GRIEF THAT I HEAR HE IS VERY SICK AND TO ME,
  • 13:24 I KNOW GOD'S SOVEREIGN WILL WILL WORK ALL THINGS TOGETHER FOR GOOD.
  • 13:31 IT'S MY PRAYER THAT GOD WILL HEAL HIM FROM THE THINGS HE FACES.
  • 13:36 BUT, I JUST HAVE NOTHING BUT THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR ZOLA.
  • 13:41 HE HAS BEEN ONE OF THE GREAT WARRIORS OF THE CHURCH,
  • 13:45 TO KEEP PEOPLE FOCUSED ON THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD, THE TRUTH OF PROPHECY
  • 13:52 AND THE ABSOLUTE IMPORTANCE OF ISRAEL IN OUR FUTURE.
  • 13:58 SO, I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A TIME WHEN I HOPE YOU WILL PRAY FOR HIM AS I DO MANY TIMES A DAY
  • 14:06 AND THAT YOU WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR HIS FAMILY, FOR HIS MINISTRY
  • 14:11 BECAUSE IF GOD IN HIS PROVIDENCE TAKES HIM AWAY,
  • 14:17 WE WILL HAVE LOST ONE OF THE GREATEST VOICES FOR ISRAEL THAT WE HAVE IN THESE LAST DAYS.
  • 14:25 IF YOU HAD A WORD TO DESCRIBE ISRAEL, WHAT WOULD THAT ONE WORD BE?
  • 14:30 INCREDIBLE.
  • 14:31 FULFILLMENT.
  • 14:32 UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 14:34 WOW.
  • 14:35 SHALOM.
  • 14:37 FABULOUS.
  • 14:38 SABABA, WHICH MEANS AWESOME.
  • 14:42 LOVE, LOVE OF GOD.
  • 14:46 PHENOMENAL, PHENOMENAL, PHENOMENAL.
  • 14:56 WELL, THERE'S ISRAEL, I ALWAYS SAY, THE WAY WE SEE IT AND IT IS THE WAY IT IS.
  • 15:02 I MEAN, WE DON'T SEE ANYTHING SPECIAL.
  • 15:04 WE GO TO THE PLACES WHERE BIBLICAL THINGS HAPPENED,
  • 15:06 WE'RE NOT PICKING PRETTY PLACES AND SO ON TO MAKE IT LOOK GOOD.
  • 15:10 YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT.
  • 15:11 IT IS GOOD.
  • 15:12 ALL THE PLACES ARE PRETTY.
  • 15:14 BUT, WHERE THE BIBLICAL THINGS HAPPENED IS WHERE WE REALLY STRESS.
  • 15:18 YOU KNOW, OUR PEOPLE ARE A WITNESS TO THESE JEWISH PEOPLE IN ISRAEL.
  • 15:22 I DON'T KNOW, THE CHURCH IS SO LAZY.
  • 15:24 WHENEVER I ASK ANY CHURCH, DO YOU SEND MISSIONARIES TO ISRAEL, THEY THINK I'M CRAZY.
  • 15:29 WELL, I'M NOT CRAZY, THE GOSPEL SAYS THAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO GO TO THE JEW FIRST
  • 15:34 AND THIS HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED AND IF WE WOULD DO IT,
  • 15:37 ISRAEL WOULD BE STRONGER, THE CHURCH WOULD BE STRONGER,
  • 15:40 THE LORD WOULD LOVE IT, THEY'RE HIS PEOPLE.
  • 15:42 BUT, OK, OUR PEOPLE WITNESS AND YOU CAN WITNESS.
  • 15:47 THESE OLD STORIES IS THEY'RE GOING TO THROW YOU IN JAIL OR SOMETHING,
  • 15:50 THAT'S RIDICULOUS, IT'S A DEMOCRACY, YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE.
  • 15:53 IF THE MUSLIMS CAN WALK DOWN THE STREET AND GET ON A BUS AND THE WHOLE THING,
  • 15:56 CHRISTIANS ARE WELCOME.
  • 15:59 WE TESTIFIED IN SUBTLE WAYS.
  • 16:04 I ALWAYS TELL THE STORY OF THE CHRISTIAN GROUP THAT CAME TO THE SULTAN'S POOL
  • 16:07 FOR AN EVENING OF SINGING AND CONCERTS AND ALL WHATEVER, SPEECHES,
  • 16:13 THE ISRAELI CLEANING CREW ARRIVED AT 10 PM.
  • 16:16 THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE 5000 PEOPLE IN THAT VALLEY, HUGE AND THEY GOT UP AND LEFT
  • 16:22 AND THE TRUCKS CAME DOWN READY TO CLEAN UP THE PARK AND THERE WAS NOTHING TO DO.
  • 16:28 AFTER 5000 PEOPLE SAT THERE FOR 3 HOURS, THERE WAS NOT A PAPER CUP ON THE GROUND.
  • 16:34 THAT'S A WITNESS.
  • 16:36 THAT'S STRONG, WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY THOUGHT WHEN THEY WENT BACK HOME,
  • 16:39 DIDN'T HAVE TO WORK ALL NIGHT.
  • 16:41 THEY REALLY THINK A LOT OF US AND WE'RE RETURNING THE FAVOR.
  • 16:47 CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS OR WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELF, SUPPORTER OF ISRAEL,
  • 16:52 YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK, ABSOLUTELY THE RIGHT TRACK.
  • 16:55 THE WHOLE WORLD'S BEEN TRYING TO DESTROY ISRAEL
  • 16:58 INCLUDING THE STATE DEPT. FOR ITS WHOLE CAREER.
  • 17:02 IT'S PROBABLY A PROBLEM WITH GOD, IT'S NOT ABOUT ISRAEL, THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT ISRAEL.
  • 17:08 PEOPLE THAT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH GOD HAVE TROUBLE SAYING THAT OUT LOUD,
  • 17:11 SO THEY CAN GO AHEAD AND HATE THE JEWS, HATE WHAT GOD CHOSE,
  • 17:15 WHAT HE'S PROMISED AND SO ON IN ISRAEL, OF COURSE THEY CAN HATE THAT.
  • 17:20 THERE'S NOTHING TO HATE, I MEAN, WHEN YOU GO THERE YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 17:23 THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE WORLD SUPERIOR SOCIETIES.
  • 17:26 THERE'S NOTHING WITH IT AT ALL.
  • 17:28 YOU HAVE GANGS THERE, THE PALESTINIANS,
  • 17:31 BUT YOU HAVE GANGS IN LOS ANGELES, IT JUST LIFE, YOU KNOW.
  • 17:35 WHILE I'M TOUCHING ON THAT, DON'T GET TOO IMPRESSED WITH THESE PAPER TIGERS, THE HAMAS
  • 17:41 ALL THEY DO IS MARCH UP AND DOWN THEIR OWN STREETS LIKE THE CARTOON PROTESTORS
  • 17:46 AND ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER TO BE SOLDIERS.
  • 17:49 IN SOME WAYS I'M EAGER FOR THEM TO TRY SOME KIND OF ASSAULT ON ISRAEL
  • 17:53 BECAUSE THEY'LL GET THEIR BLOCK KNOCKED OFF AND THEN
  • 17:55 THAT COULD PRECIPITATE THE INVASION OF GOG AND MAGOG WITH IRAN LEADING IT
  • 18:00 AND THE LOGICAL ARAB CONGLOMERATE COMING AGAINST IT
  • 18:05 AND OF COURSE THEY'LL LOSE THAT TOO, BUT THE IMPORTANT PART I'M LOOKING AT
  • 18:08 IS WE'RE OUT OF HERE FOR THAT, THE RAPTURE IS RIGHT BEFORE THAT
  • 18:12 SO THIS COULD BE A MATTER OF WEEKS, COULD BE THE LORD'S PLAN,
  • 18:17 I GOT YOUR ATTENTION DIDN'T I, NOW I TOOK EVERYBODY INCLUDING YOU,
  • 18:20 YOU GOT A NEW BODY, NOW LISTEN UP.
  • 18:22 FINE WITH ME.
  • 18:24 WELL, THE 90'S CAME ALONG AND I HAD TO GET INTO POLITICS,
  • 18:31 I MEAN, IT SEEMED TO BE THE NEXT LEADING BECAUSE THE WORLD WAS GETTING SO CRAZY,
  • 18:37 FORCING ISRAELIS TO SIT IN A MADRID CONFERENCE AND FINALLY THIS AWFUL OSLO AGREEMENT.
  • 18:42 THESE ARE SIMPLY PLANS TO DISMEMBER ISRAEL,
  • 18:45 THEY'RE TOO POWERFUL TO THROW THEM OFF THE LAND
  • 18:50 SO THEY KIND OF CUT THEM IN PIECES AND GIVE THE PIECES TO SUCH AS A THIEF,
  • 18:55 MURDERER HIS WHOLE LIFE, ARAFAT, ONE OF THE MOST EVIL MEN.
  • 19:00 IF ARAFAT HAD HITLER'S OFFICE, HE MIGHT HAVE FINISHED OFF EVERY JEW.
  • 19:04 WHAT A NASTY, WHAT A THIEF, WHAT A CROOK
  • 19:08 AND BILL CLINTON INVITED HIM TO THE WHITE HOUSE MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE.
  • 19:13 I MEAN, I WASN'T PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN POLITICS.
  • 19:16 I DON'T REALLY FOLLOW IT MUCH NOW EXCEPT TO DEPLORE MOST OF THE SILLINESS THAT GOES ON
  • 19:21 IN CONGRESS AND SO ON, BUT I HAD TO LEARN THIS STUFF
  • 19:25 BECAUSE NOBODY ELSE WAS TELLING THE TRUTH
  • 19:28 THAT THIS WHOLE THING IS A RAID ON ISRAEL AND IT'S NOT GOING WORK ANYWAY.
  • 19:34 OF COURSE IT DIDN'T WORK.
  • 19:35 THEY GAVE THEM GUNS, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE,
  • 19:38 LIKE GOING DOWN TO THE LOS ANGELES GANG AND SAYING,
  • 19:42 OK, EVERYBODY TAKE A RIFLE AND HERE'S SOME BULLET
  • 19:45 AND WE'LL TURN OUR BACKS AND YOU DO THE RIGHT THING.
  • 19:48 IT'S MINDLESS.
  • 19:50 THE THING IS, THEY CAN'T DESTROY ISRAEL, THAT'S NOT GOD'S WILL,
  • 19:54 IT'S GOING TO SURVIVE, SO, THEY WON'T.
  • 19:56 IT'S TROUBLE, THERE ARE A FEW CASUALTIES AND I'M REALLY ONLY SAYING A FEW,
  • 20:03 THERE'S NOTHING MUCH GOING ON, NEVER HAS BEEN.
  • 20:06 YOU CAN MAKE A DRAMATIC PICTURE OUT OF SOME KID BLOWING UP A BUS,
  • 20:10 OF COURSE YOU CAN AND IT'S TRAGIC, BUT IT'S A BUS,
  • 20:14 IT'S NOT A NORMANDY INVASION, IT'S NOT A WORLD TRADE CENTER.
  • 20:19 IT'S A SNEAK-THIEF THAT GOT AWAY WITH SOMETHING
  • 20:23 AND THAT'S ABOUT IT FOR HAMAS AND THE REST OF THEM, NO BIG DEAL.
  • 20:28 OK, BUT, I WENT ON THROUGH THE 90'S MAKING POLITIC-TYPE SHOWS,
  • 20:35 I MEAN FROM TIME TO TIME AND WRITING ABOUT IT IN THE LEVITT LETTER,
  • 20:39 WHICH REALLY CAME LEAPING FORWARD.
  • 20:42 I MEAN, THE LEVITT LETTER WAS JUST A 4 PAGE LITTLE FOLDOUT WHEN IT STARTED
  • 20:46 AND NOW IT'S 32 COLOR PAGES, IT'S A MAGAZINE,
  • 20:49 IT DWARFS SUCH PUBLICATIONS AS MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE,
  • 20:53 IF THEY STILL SEND THAT THING AND THE OTHER SEMINARY PUBLICATIONS.
  • 20:58 I THINK 100,000 PEOPLE GET A CHANCE AT IT.
  • 21:01 WE SEND ABOVE 50,000 TO HOUSEHOLDS
  • 21:04 AND SEVERAL READ IN A HOUSEHOLD OR PASS THE THING ALONG.
  • 21:08 WE SEND THEM TO PRISONS. WE SEND THEM EVERYWHERE.
  • 21:10 MUSLIMS ARE IMPRESSED WITH IT BECAUSE THEY SAID AT ONE PRISON
  • 21:14 IT'S GOT TO BE TAKEN DOWN WITH THEIR STANDARD TACTFUL WAY,
  • 21:19 IT'S GOT TO BE TAKEN DOWN BECAUSE IT'S OFFENSIVE TO US.
  • 21:23 A PRISONER WROTE TO ME, WELL CAN'T YOU TELL THE GOVERNMENT TO TELL THESE MUSLIMS TO DESIST
  • 21:30 AND I'LL PUT YOUR LEVITT LETTER BACK UP.
  • 21:32 I TOLD HIM, NO, NO, I'M ACTUALLY CAUGHT UP
  • 21:33 IN TRYING TO GET THEM TO STOP DESTROYING OUR ENTIRE COUNTRY,
  • 21:37 I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE LEVITT LETTER.
  • 21:39 THE GOVERNMENT IS ALMOST UNAWARE THAT THE MUSLIMS ARE COMING, I WOULD SAY.
  • 21:47 THE TOURS CONTINUE, VERY STRONG, RIGHT THROUGH THE INTIFADA,
  • 21:52 THAT IS ARAFAT STARTED UP THIS MURDEROUS IDEA IN 2001
  • 21:58 AND SIMPLY TO COVER HIS TRACKS, I THINK, HE WAS TRAPPED.
  • 22:03 HE CAME TO CAMP DAVID AND SAT THERE AND BARAK, THE PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL
  • 22:11 PRESENTED HIM A COUNTRY ON A PLATTER, 98% OF WHATEVER HE HAD ASKED.
  • 22:17 THE JEWS WERE ONLY KEEP THEMSELVES A LITTLE CORNER HERE OR THERE,
  • 22:21 I MEAN IT WAS AN INCREDIBLE OFFER AND IF HE'D HAVE TOLD THE TRUTH,
  • 22:26 OF COURSE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT FOR HIM,
  • 22:29 BUT, IF HE WOULD HAVE TOLD THE TRUTH, HE WOULD HAVE SAID,
  • 22:31 I DON'T WANT A COUNTRY, I WANT TO MURDER JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 22:36 THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN CLEAR TRUTH, BUT INSTEAD
  • 22:39 HE WALKED OUT OF THE MEETING IN SOME KIND OF MUDDLE,
  • 22:43 HANAN ASHRAWI, HIS SPOKESLADY LIED TO ME,
  • 22:46 I'M SO GLAD YOU BROUGHT THIS UP BECAUSE NO ONE SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND,
  • 22:49 WENT INTO THESE INCREDIBLE LIES, IT'S LIKE TALKING TO LITTLE CHILDREN.
  • 22:54 I'M SORRY, SHE WAS A PROFESSOR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA, PROFESSOR OF HISTORY,
  • 22:59 IF YOU'D LIKE TO KNOW WHERE OUR PROFESSORS ARE GOING THESE DAYS, I THINK YOU KNOW.
  • 23:04 BUT, ANYWAY, HE STARTED UP ALL THIS BUS BOMBINGS AND SUICIDE THINGS AND SO ON.
  • 23:12 INCULCATING A CULTURE OF HATRED IN LITTLE CHILDREN,
  • 23:17 EVEN NURSERY SCHOOL CHILDREN WALKING AROUND WITH GUNS
  • 23:21 AND WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO END UP WITH WHEN YOU DO THINGS THAT WAY?
  • 23:25 NOW, THESE KIDS ARE TEENAGERS AND THEY THINK ARE TOUGH
  • 23:30 AND GOT A JOB TO DO AND THEY'RE SOLDIERS, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
  • 23:34 AGAIN, PAPER TIGERS, I FEEL SORRY FOR THEM,
  • 23:37 I HOPE DON'T REALLY START SOMETHING BECAUSE THEY'LL LEARN SOMETHING,
  • 23:40 BUT, OUR TOURS KEPT COMING AND PEOPLE WOULD COME IN THE MIDST OF THAT AND THEY WERE SMALL,
  • 23:48 BUT, THERE WAS NO WAY I'VE EVER CANCELED OR POSTPONED A TOUR,
  • 23:51 NEVER, NEVER HAPPEN, I DON'T CARE IF THERE'S WORLD WAR.
  • 23:54 THE FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT TASK IN THIS MINISTRY IS TO SHOW ISRAEL, TALK ABOUT IT,
  • 24:01 PRAISE IT, DO WHAT GOD SAID, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
  • 24:06 AND TOURS FAITHFULLY CAME AND I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I BEGGED YOU THROUGH THESE YEARS TO COME.
  • 24:12 IT WAS PERFECTLY SAFE.
  • 24:14 THE NEW YORK TIMES CAN BLOW A STORY INTO GOD KNOWS WHAT,
  • 24:18 BUT WE DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE NEAR ANY SORT OF STUFF LIKE THAT,
  • 24:22 SAFER AS ALWAYS THAN NEW YORK ITSELF OR WASHINGTON OR ANYWHERE YOU VISIT HERE.
  • 24:26 I'M SORRY TO SAY THE TOURS GOT VERY SMALL BECAUSE PEOPLE EVIDENTLY BELIEVED CNN
  • 24:34 AND NEW YORK TIMES AND SO ON THAT IT WAS DANGEROUS.
  • 24:37 IT WAS NEVER, EVER DANGEROUS.
  • 24:39 IT WAS, AS A MATTER OF FACT, EXTRA SAFE BECAUSE WE HAD THESE EMPTY HOTELS WITH NOBODY AROUND.
  • 24:45 I MEAN, YOU HAD A WONDERFUL TOUR PLUS PLENTY OF SOLDIERS,
  • 24:49 I MEAN, EVERYTHING IS WATCHED AND TIED DOWN
  • 24:54 AND THE CHANCE OF GETTING HIT IN SOME KIND OF TERRORIST ATTACK
  • 24:57 IN ISRAEL IS LIKE GETTING HIT WITH A METEOR.
  • 24:59 I MEAN, IT'S CRAZY TO EVEN THINK ABOUT.
  • 25:02 I'M JUST DISCOURAGED AT THIS POINT BECAUSE I CAN'T TAKE THESE TOURS NOW
  • 25:07 AND I CAN'T GET YOU THERE PERSONALLY AND I ASKED YOU FOR YEARS TO COME.
  • 25:13 NOW THE AUDIENCE SEEMS TO BELIEVE CNN AGAIN AND THINK IT'S SAFE.
  • 25:18 I CAN'T HONESTLY SAY AT THIS MOMENT IT'S PERFECTLY SAFE
  • 25:22 BECAUSE THINGS ARE IN A MUDDLE OVER THERE.
  • 25:25 I THINK IT'S ALRIGHT, BUT TAKE MY ADVICE,
  • 25:29 OK, AS LONG AS YOU GOT ME HERE, I KNOW THIS SUBJECT AND I'LL TELL YOU THE TRUTH.
  • 25:34 WELL, THE NEXT THING THAT HAPPENED, I MEAN THE INTIFADA KIND OF PETERED OUT,
  • 25:39 THE ISRAELIS BUILT A FENCE THAT WAS TOTALLY EFFECTIVE.
  • 25:43 THAT'S ALL A PALESTINIAN CAN DO IS WALK ACROSS A LINE AND BLOW SOMETHING UP
  • 25:47 AND IF THERE'S A FENCE HE CAN'T CLIMB IT AND THAT'S THE END OF IT.
  • 25:50 IT WORKED AND ALSO TAKING THE SETTLERS OFF OF GAZA,
  • 25:54 PUT THEM IN A SAFE PLACE AND THEY'RE JUST BACKING UP TO SOME DEGREE
  • 25:59 AND LEAVING THE PALESTINIANS WITH THEIR SCRUB LAND
  • 26:02 AND THEIR PARADES AND THEY DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD, SO GO LIVE WITH THEM, THAT'S ALL.
  • 26:07 MANY PEOPLE DISAGREED WITH THIS FENCE IDEA, OF COURSE.
  • 26:12 IMMEDIATELY THE UN, THE RUSSIANS, THE ISRAEL-HATERS SAID TAKE IT DOWN, TAKE IT DOWN.
  • 26:17 IF THEY WOULD HAVE GONE ON THEY WOULD HAVE SAID THERE'S NOT ENOUGH JEWS BEING KILLED.
  • 26:20 WHO'S GOING TO KILL THE JEWS, BUT THEY AREN'T TAKING IT DOWN
  • 26:24 AND ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO INTERFERE WITH ISRAEL
  • 26:26 IS GOING HAVE TO COME THERE AND TAKE THE LAND THEMSELVES.
  • 26:30 THAT'S NOT EASY.
  • 26:31 WE WENT ON PAX, FABULOUS, I MEAN OPEN NETWORK, CABLE TV
  • 26:38 AND HUGE AUDIENCES CAME TO US AND THEY SUPPORTED US PRETTY QUICK, I MEAN,
  • 26:44 IT WAS A GAMBLE AGAIN, IT WAS THE LORD'S PLAN.
  • 26:47 BY NOW, I'M WAY PAST SAYING TO HIM, ARE YOU SURE THIS IS RIGHT?
  • 26:51 THEN WE WENT ON DAYSTAR AND I TELL YOU THE FUTURE LOOKS GOOD, WE HAVE A GREAT MANY FRIENDS,
  • 26:58 IF I'M NOT HERE, LOTS OF FRIENDS WILL BE HERE, MY WIFE WILL BE HERE, MY SON WILL BE HERE
  • 27:04 AND PROGRAMS WILL CONTINUE, OF COURSE.
  • 27:07 WHETHER I'M HERE OR NOT, LET ME TELL YOU THIS,
  • 27:11 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
