Caption transcript for “Prophecy Update,” Part 1

  • 00:17 BRETHREN MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED
  • 00:25 FOR THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GREEK
  • 00:28 FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:44 A HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU,
  • 00:47 JEFFREY SEIF HERE
  • 00:49 AND HERE WITH A SPECIAL EDITION
  • 00:52 OF ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 00:55 WE BELIEVE THAT WE ARE LIVING IN INTERESTING TIMES TO PUT IT MILDLY.
  • 01:00 GOODNESS...WITH AN ECONOMY THAT'S GIVING US GRIEF,
  • 01:04 WITH THE WORLD ABLAZE, WITH THE DOGS OF WAR UNLEASHED IN VARIOUS PLACES
  • 01:10 AND THEN AMERICA PUTTING IT BACK ON THE LEASH AND BRINGING IT BACK IN VARIOUS PLACES AS WELL,
  • 01:16 GOODNESS...IT'S A TIME TO PAUSE AND HAVE A LOOK AT THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 01:22 CERTAINLY YOU CAN GO TO VARIOUS NEWS SOURCES, COMMENTATORS MORE ABLE THAN I
  • 01:28 TO GET SOME SENSE OF WHAT'S HAPPENING ON A DAY BY DAY BASIS.
  • 01:33 I PERSONALLY CHECK OUT A VARIETY OF NEWSWIRES TO BETTER COME TO TERMS WITH THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN AS IT MOVES FAST.
  • 01:42 BUT PERSONALLY I PLACE GREAT STOCK IN LOOKING AT THE BIBLICAL WORD TO GET SOME PERSPECTIVE ABOUT THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 01:54 AND THE REASON WHY I DO THAT IS BECAUSE CHALLENGING AS THE TIMES MAY BE
  • 02:02 I DON'T BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD IS SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 02:08 AND THE REASON WHY IS BECAUSE, TO USE THE OLD SONG THAT WE TEACH KIDS IN SUNDAY SCHOOL,
  • 02:14 I BELIEVE IN A GOD WHO'S" GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS".
  • 02:21 THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL SONG; IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE ALWAYS HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WORLD.
  • 02:25 WHAT I WANT TO DO IN THIS ADDITION, THIS SPECIAL ADDITION,
  • 02:29 IN AS MUCH AS YOU HEAR FROM US TEACHING VARIOUS BIBLICAL MESSAGES,
  • 02:34 WHAT I WANT TO DO HERE IS HEAR FROM YOU.
  • 02:38 WE GET MAIL, WE GET E-MAIL AS PEOPLE CONTACT US AT WWW.LEVITT.COM
  • 02:45 AND THEY ASK QUESTIONS AND QUESTIONS ARE COMING IN.
  • 02:49 FOR EXAMPLE, THE ISSUE OF THE GAZA,
  • 02:59 IT'S A GREAT QUESTION.
  • 03:01 I'LL TELL YOU WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING ON.
  • 03:04 IT'S ACTUALLY BEEN GOING ON FOR SOME TIME.
  • 03:08 AND HERE IT IS IN A NUTSHELL.
  • 03:10 ISRAEL PROVIDENTIALLY GUIDED BY GOD'S HAND THAT IS
  • 03:16 WAS RE-ESTABLISHED AS A NATION STATE SOME YEARS AGO.
  • 03:22 THE BIBLE SAYS IN THE LATER DAYS JEWISH PEOPLE WILL BE BROUGHT BACK FROM EXILE AND RE-SETTLED IN THE LAND.
  • 03:31 AND NOT ONLY DOES THE BIBLE SAY THAT,
  • 03:34 THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IN CONJUNCTION WITH THAT
  • 03:38 THE NATIONS ROUNDABOUT THAT LAND ARE GOING TO BE HELL BENT ON ISRAEL'S DESTRUCTION.
  • 03:46 WE GET THIS IN ZECHARIAH,
  • 03:49 WE GET THIS IN ISAIAH,
  • 03:51 WE GET THIS IN EZEKIEL,
  • 03:53 THIS IS THE PROPHETIC WORD AND JESUS HIMSELF WEIGHING IN ON THE WORLD AT THE RAGGED EDGE OF TIME
  • 04:01 SPEAKS OF A WORLD THAT COMES REPLETE WITH WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS.
  • 04:08 AS A BIBLE READER MYSELF CHALLENGING THOUGH THE TIMES MAY BE
  • 04:12 IT GIVES ME GREAT PAUSE TO GIVE GREAT STOCK TO THE BIBLICAL TESTIMONY.
  • 04:18 AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 04:20 FRIENDS, BECAUSE WE HAVE A GOD WHO'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS.
  • 04:25 THAT GOD SPOKE YEARS AGO ABOUT ISRAEL'S RE-EMERGENCE
  • 04:29 AND SIMILARLY IN CONJUNCTION WITH THAT SPOKE ABOUT JUDGMENT BEING VENTED TOWARD THOSE ROUND ABOUT ISRAEL.
  • 04:37 AND WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT EVEN PHILISTIA OR WHAT WOULD BE THE MODERN GAZA SEACOAST AREA
  • 04:46 IS NOTED EXPLICITLY IN THE BIBLICAL TEXT AS DRAWING GOD'S FIRE IF YOU WILL.
  • 04:54 THINGS ARE AMISS THERE.
  • 04:55 WE'RE TOLD IN EZEKIEL CHAPTER 25,
  • 05:25 WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THE ANCIENT PHILISTINES WERE SEAFARING PEOPLE.
  • 05:28 I KNOW THAT WHEN WE HEAR ABOUT THE "ITES"--THE CANAANITES, "THIS-ITE" AND THIS--
  • 05:33 AND WE LOVE THEM ALL TOGETHER
  • 05:35 BUT TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS DIFFERENT PEOPLE SETTLED AT DIFFERENT PLACES.
  • 05:38 AND THE ANCIENT PHILISTINES THEY HUGGED THE MEDITERRANEAN COAST.
  • 05:43 AND THE PHILISTINES AS WE KNOW IN BIBLE DAYS
  • 05:45 WERE GIVEN TO VARIOUS STRUGGLES AND OPPRESSIONS AND HERE YOU HAVE THE BIBLICAL TESTIMONY.
  • 05:52 THE LORD SAYS ENOUGH ALREADY,
  • 05:55 THOSE THAT HUG THE COAST, HE SAYS, THAT THESE INDIVIDUALS WILL BE THE OBJECT OF GOD'S DISCONSTERNATION.
  • 06:02 WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 17,
  • 06:16 AM I SAYING THAT WHAT'S HAPPENING TODAY EXPLICITLY IS WHAT WAS FORETOLD BACK THEN?
  • 06:24 WELL WHAT I'M LOOKING TO DO IS NOTE THAT THERE'S NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.
  • 06:28 WHILE IT'S TRUE THAT THE PHILISTINES OF A BYGONE ERA
  • 06:31 ARE NOT THE SAME AS THE PALESTINIANS TODAY WHO'VE BORROWED THE NAME
  • 06:35 BUT THEY'RE NOT THE PEOPLE.
  • 06:37 THE PHILISTINES WERE SEAFARING PEOPLE WHO CAME FROM GREEK ISLANDS AND PARTS OF THE GREEK MAINLAND
  • 06:42 AND MOVED EASTWARD AND HUGGED THE EASTERN COAST OF THE MEDITERRANEAN.
  • 06:47 THE PALESTINIANS SO CALLED TODAY ARE SAND FARING PEOPLE THAT CAME UP FROM ARABIA
  • 06:53 AND STEALTHFULLY GOT THE BETTER PART OF THE MIDDLE EAST, NORTHERN AFRICA
  • 06:56 AND ON INTO BYZANTINE AND OTHER PLACES AS WELL.
  • 07:00 IN ANY CASE WHAT I NOTE IN THE BIBLICAL TEXT IS GOD SAYS THAT THERE IS A DAY
  • 07:05 WHEN VENGEANCE WILL BE EXECUTED UPON THOSE THAT ARE GIVEN TO EXECUTING THEIR WRATH UPON THE HEBREW PEOPLE.
  • 07:14 AND THE REASON WHY I SAY THAT... IF YOU'LL LOOK WITH ME PLEASE IN EZEKIEL CHAPTER 38,
  • 07:20 IN THE WAKE OF DESCRIBING ISRAEL'S RE-EMERGENCE
  • 07:25 AND WHILE GIVING VOICE TO THE WAY THE NATIONS WILL RAGE ROUND ABOUT
  • 07:31 FINALLY IT COMES TO AN END IN WAYS THAT ARE STRIKING.
  • 07:35 I'VE REFERENCED THIS VERSE BEFORE IN OTHER PROGRAMS.
  • 07:38 IF YOU'LL LOOK IN CHAPTER 38, VERSE 22 HE SAYS,
  • 07:53 THERE IS SOME SENSE OF WHICH THERE'S BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR
  • 07:57 AND THIS GIVES EXPRESSION TO THE FACT THAT IT'S A GOD AWFUL SIGHT TO TELL YOU THE GOD'S HONEST TRUTH.
  • 08:05 I DON'T WISH ANY HARM UPON ANY PEOPLE AND ARAB MOTHERS, MUSLIM MOTHERS CRY FOR THEIR CHILDREN
  • 08:12 JUST AS ISRAELI MOTHERS CRY FOR THEIRS, JUST AS AMERICAN MOTHERS CRY AND PRAY FOR HER CHILDREN IN HARMS WAY.
  • 08:22 AT THE END OF THE DAY WE LIVE IN A WORLD THAT IS RACKED BY SOCIAL UNREST, POLITICAL INTRIGUE,
  • 08:29 BUT IN THE WAKE OF ALL OF THIS WE'RE TOLD IN THE LITERATURE
  • 08:33 THAT GOD IS GOING TO SHOW HIMSELF STRONG AND SO STRANGE AS IT MIGHT SOUND
  • 08:38 WHEN I LOOK AT THE WORLD TODAY AND WHEN I LOOK AT THE BIBLE TODAY, THE WORD TODAY,
  • 08:43 AND PUT THEM TOGETHER IT DOESN'T WEAKEN MY FAITH, IT DOESN'T WEAKEN MY RESOLUTION
  • 08:49 BECAUSE IT TELLS ME "LOOK UP OUR REDEMPTION IS DRAWING NEAR".
  • 08:53 HE SAYS HERE THAT THERE WILL BE A FLOOD,
  • 08:56 A TORRENT OF JUDGMENT THAT'S SPENT ON THE NATIONS HELL BENT ON DESTROYING THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 09:04 BUT THEN HE SAYS A WORD HERE THAT TO ME IS STRIKING.
  • 09:06 HE FINISHES IN THE 38TH CHAPTER IN VERSE 23 SAYING,
  • 09:24 NOW I WANT YOU TO HEAR ME ON THIS.
  • 09:26 GOD IS GOING TO MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN BY THE WAY HE
  • 09:29 PULLS THE RABBIT OUT OF THE HAT IN THE MIDDLE EAST FINALLY AND FULLY AT THE APPEARANCE OF HIS SON THE MESSIAH.
  • 09:38 LET ME JUST SAY SPEAKING OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS THAT IN SOME SENSE WE ARE THE ADVANCED TROOPS.
  • 09:45 THE TROOPS STORMED NORMANDY IN A BYGONE ERA
  • 09:51 SIMILARLY THAT WE TODAY ARE GOD'S ARMY OUT HERE IN THE WORLD TO MAKE HIS WORD KNOWN,
  • 09:57 TO SHOW CONGRUENCE BETWEEN THE ANCIENT WORD AND THE MODERN WORLD.
  • 10:04 IT'S A GREAT STORY.
  • 10:06 ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS IS PLEASED TO TELL THAT STORY

  • 11:22 YES, IT IS WORTH THE TRIP,

  • 12:01 THEY WANTED TO KNOW...THEY SENT AN E-MAIL,
  • 12:03 "HEY ARE YOU GUYS STILL TAKING YOUR TRIPS TO ISRAEL OR ARE YOU GOING TO STOP?"
  • 12:06 HEY LISTEN WE'RE NEVER GOING TO STOP, NOT ON MY WATCH.
  • 12:11 PART OF THAT IS BECAUSE THE CHALLENGES IN ISRAEL ARE LOCALIZED.
  • 12:15 IT'S NOT A WORLD ABLAZE IN THE MIDDLE EAST WITH EVERYONE IN ISRAEL RUNNING FOR COVER.
  • 12:21 I'VE BEEN TO ISRAEL SCORES OF TIMES AND I ALWAYS HAVE THE TIME OF MY LIFE
  • 12:26 AND I GET TO MEET SOME NEW FRIENDS ALONG THE WAY.
  • 12:29 IT'S A TRIP OF A LIFETIME AND I SURE WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN ME THERE

  • 12:39 SOME PEOPLE SAY WELL I'LL GO TO ISRAEL WHEN THINGS SIMMER DOWN.

  • 14:10 THAT IS PROPHETICALLY SIGNIFICANT AND BIBLE READERS ARE INTERESTED.
  • 14:14 "THE EVIL EMPIRE STRIKES BACK",
  • 14:17 IT WAS A LOOK AT BELLICOSE ACTIVITY OUT OF THE FORMER USSR THAT DOESN'T LOOK SO FORMER.
  • 14:24 PEOPLE THOUGHT THE RUSSIAN BEAR WAS DE-CLAWED AND BECAME A PUPPY
  • 14:28 BUT THAT'S NOT THE WORLD THAT WE'RE LIVING IN,
  • 14:30 WE'RE SEEING SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND BIBLE READERS HAVE KNOWN THAT ALL ALONG.
  • 14:35 IN EZEKIEL WE HEAR ABOUT A CONFEDERACY AGAINST ISRAEL THAT'S HEADED BY A MAJOR SUPERPOWER DUE NORTH

  • 15:07 "WHOSE LAND IS IT?"
  • 15:09 TODAY PEOPLE DEBATE ABOUT WHOSE LAND IT IS.
  • 15:11 WELL THIS SHOULD BE NO DEBATE FOR BIBLE READERS,
  • 15:15 NONE WHATSOEVER.
  • 15:16 AND IF YOU WANT TO LOOK AT THE WORLD FROM BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVES
  • 15:21 AND WORK WITH THE QUESTION "WHOSE LAND IS IT?"
  • 15:24 WELL ZOLA LEVITT, THE FOUND OF THIS MINISTRY, THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 15:28 IT SAYS THAT THE STRONG ARM OF THE PEN REACHES BEYOND THE GRAVE.
  • 15:32 WHEN WE WRITE OUR VOICE CONTINUES WHEN WE'RE UNABLE TO CONTINUE SPEAKING
  • 15:37 BECAUSE WE CAN HEAR THAT MAN AND HE WAS ONE OF THE PIONEERS IN CHRISTIAN BROADCASTING
  • 15:41 CERTAINLY IN HELPING INDIVIDUALS SEE THE BIBLE FROM A JEWISH PERSPECTIVE.
  • 15:45 I STAND ON THE SHOULDERS OF A GIANT WITH ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 15:48 "WHOSE LAND IS IT?" IS A DVD.
  • 15:50 IF YOU WANT TO SEE HIM AS WELL AS HEAR HIM GET IT,
  • 15:52 IT'S GOOD STUFF.
  • 15:54 THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT AND THE CURRENT DR. TOM MCCALL
  • 15:57 WROTE "SATAN IN THE SANCTUARY"
  • 15:59 BIBLE PROPHECY AT ITS BEST.
  • 16:02 THESE GUYS TEAMED UP AND WROTE A CLASSIC HERE.
  • 16:04 YEARS AGO FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE TABERNACLE, THE TEMPLE, WHEN'S IT GOING TO BE RE-BUILT,
  • 16:09 WHAT'S THE STORY?
  • 16:11 "THE HOUSE THAT GOD BUILT"
  • 16:12 BY JEFFREY SEIF AND ZOLA LEVITT WRITTEN TWENTY SOME YEARS AGO.
  • 16:16 RECENTLY I'VE WRITTEN OTHER BOOKS,
  • 16:18 "THE IRANIAN MENACE IN JEWISH HISTORY AND PROPHECY".
  • 16:21 WE LOOK AT THAT.
  • 16:22 "COMING, THE END" WITH ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 16:25 I'M NOT TRYING TO SELL A BUNCH OF BOOKS REAL QUICK.
  • 16:28 WHAT I'M TRYING TO DO IS CONVEY TO YOU THAT IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN THE NEWS
  • 16:34 AND IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN THE NEWS WITH BIBLICAL VIEWS
  • 16:38 AND IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN BIBLICAL VIEWS WITH JEWISH NEWS,
  • 16:42 IF YOU WANT TO PUT JEWISH EYES ON THE WORLD AND THE WORD
  • 16:46 ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES IS A GO-TO SOURCE FOR YOU.
  • 16:54 IS THE PLACE TO GO
  • 16:57 AND IF YOU'LL GO THERE YOU CAN SHOP THERE, YOU CAN STOP THERE,
  • 17:00 THERE'S BOOKS IF YOU WANT
  • 17:02 AND THERE'S STUFF FOR FREE.
  • 17:03 YOU CAN VIEW PAST TELEVISION PROGRAMS.
  • 17:07 WE'RE IN THE BUSINESS OF FILMING ON LOCATION IN ISRAEL AND YOU HELP US DO IT.
  • 17:13 THE WAY THAT YOU HELP US IS YOU BUY OUR BOOKS; YOU BUY OUR DVDS,
  • 17:17 YOU SEND LOVE OFFERINGS AND DONATIONS.
  • 17:20 THAT'S YOUR WAY OF SAYING GO TO IT JEFFREY WE SUPPORT YOU,
  • 17:24 YOU'RE OUR MISSIONARY TO THE MODERN WORLD.
  • 17:27 I CAN KNOCK ON DOORS AS A MISSIONARY AND GET INTO ONE LIVING ROOM AFTER ANOTHER
  • 17:32 BUT BECAUSE YOU SEND ME THROUGH TELEVISION I CAN GET AND DO GET INTO MILLIONS OF LIVING ROOMS AT A SHOT.
  • 17:39 AND HOW IS THAT?
  • 17:41 BECAUSE PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE TOO ON EDGE AND OFFENDED TO HEAR FROM ME DIRECT,
  • 17:46 A JEWISH PERSON MAY WELL BE UPSET.
  • 17:48 HOW CAN YOU BE A JEWISH PERSON WHO BELIEVES IN JESUS?
  • 17:50 A CHRISTIAN PERSON CAN VERY WELL...
  • 17:52 OR A NOMINALLY CHRISTIAN PERSON OR SOMEONE WHO THINKS THEY'RE A CHRISTIAN PERSON
  • 17:55 CAN SAY WELL HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS AND DO THAT?
  • 17:59 AND EVEN AN ARAB PERSON, A MUSLIM PERSON WHO IS CURIOUS ABOUT THE WAY WE PEOPLE THINK,
  • 18:04 IF I WERE TO KNOCK ON THOSE DOORS THEY MAY WELL GET SLAMMED ON MY FACE
  • 18:08 BUT TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS MILLIONS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WATCH ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS
  • 18:14 AND THE REASON IS IS BECAUSE YOU HELP US DO THE PRESENTING AND I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THAT
  • 18:20 AND WE PEDDLE OUR MERCHANDISE A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE WE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE AIRTIME WHICH AINT GETTING ANY CHEAPER.
  • 18:27 BUT GOD'S WORKING THROUGH IT ALL AND HELPING US AND I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR HELPING US.
  • 18:33 WE LIVE IN AN INTERESTING WORLD AND I APPRECIATE THAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS
  • 18:38 TO GET SOME PERSPECTIVE ON THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 18:41 AND I'LL COME BACK IN A MOMENT;
  • 18:43 WE'LL CONTINUE TO HEAR FROM YOU.
  • 18:45 I WANT TO READ SOME OF YOUR MAIL AND CONSIDER SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT WE'RE ASKING
  • 18:50 AS WE LOOK AT THIS SPECIAL EDITION OF ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
  • 19:04 ♪(ORCHESTRA PLAYING)♪
  • 20:10 AND THAT WAS ZOLA AND ZOLA'S MUSIC.
  • 20:14 IF YOU EVER EXPERIENCED MY PREDECESSOR ZOLA LEVITT ON THIS PROGRAM
  • 20:19 YOU'VE HEARD A GUY WHO WAS STRAIGHT FORWARD TO A FAULT.
  • 20:23 HE WAS NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 20:26 AND IN A POLITICALLY CORRECT WORLD HE INVOKED THE IRE OF MANY
  • 20:31 AND DREW FIRE FOR BEING STRAIGHT FORWARD AND DIRECT.
  • 20:35 ZOLA HAD A MORE GENTEEL SIDE THAT CAME THROUGH IN HIS MUSIC,
  • 20:41 MUSIC ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD AND MUSIC ABOUT THE LOVE OF ISRAEL.
  • 20:46 I CAN THINK OF ANOTHER JEWISH WARRIOR SONG WRITER
  • 20:51 AND WHILE ZOLA LEVITT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO EVERYONE,
  • 20:56 THIS GUY HAD A BROADER CIRCULATION
  • 20:58 AND I'M TALKING ABOUT KING DAVID THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR KING IN BIBLICAL LITERATURE .
  • 21:06 THE BOOK OF PSALMS HAS 75 PIECES THAT HAVE HIS SIGNATURE ATTACHED TO IT.
  • 21:14 WE DEVELOPED A SERIES RECENTLY THAT'S GOING TO BE COMING TO YOU SOON CALLED "THE WARRIOR KING"
  • 21:23 AND IT'S SUBTITLED, "DAVID-LIKE LEADERSHIP FOR GOLIATH-LIKE TIMES".
  • 21:30 AND OH WHAT A TIME TO TELL HIS STORY ESPECIALLY WHEN WE LOOK AT THE WORLD AS IT IS RIGHT NOW
  • 21:37 AND YOU'RE GONNA FIND IT TIMELY AS TIMELY CAN BE.
  • 21:41 WELL IT'S ABOUT TIME WE LOOKED AT SOME MAIL
  • 21:44 AND I GOT A PIECE HERE FROM A VIEWER WHO WAS CURIOUS ABOUT A QUESTION THAT MIGHT BE ON YOUR MIND AS WELL.
  • 21:50 THEY WANTED TO KNOW,
  • 22:04 IT'S A REASONABLE QUESTION AT ONE LEVEL.
  • 22:08 YOU MIGHT RECALL JESUS IS ON RECORD IN CHAPTER 5 OF THE MATTHIAN GOSPEL, THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW SAYING,
  • 22:22 MINDFUL OF THAT SOME ARE INCLINED TO THINK
  • 22:26 THAT TO BE CHRISTIAN, TO BE APPROPRIATELY CHRISTIAN MEANS TO BE SHEEPISH, DOCILE,
  • 22:33 FOREVER LET OPPRESSORS RUN ROUGH SHOD OVER US.
  • 22:39 I KNOW AS A POLICE OFFICER THAT INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE BATTERED IN HOMES,
  • 22:44 NEVER MIND POLITICAL VIOLENCE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE,
  • 22:48 INDIVIDUALS THINK WELL IT'S MY DUTY IN LIFE TO SUFFER UNDER THIS OPPRESSION
  • 22:53 BECAUSE GOD WANTS ME TO BE SHEEPISH AND OBEDIENT AND SO FORTH.
  • 22:57 I BELIEVE BY THE WAY THAT IS A WEAK TELLING OF THE CHRISTIAN STORY.
  • 23:02 THERE'S ONE THING TO BEAR INSULTS, ITS ANOTHER THING TO LET THE WORLD RUN OVER YOU
  • 23:10 AND RAPE AND PILLAGE AND PLUNDER AND KILL,
  • 23:13 TO LET THE WORLD RUN OFF WITH YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS AND YOUR WIFE AND YOUR FAMILY
  • 23:19 AND YOUR HOUSES AND YOUR LANDS AND TO SIT BY IDLY AS AN EXTENSION OF A RELIGIOUS VIRTUE.
  • 23:25 FOR ME THAT IS A VIRTUE THAT I JUST DON'T BUY INTO.
  • 23:31 WHEN I LOOK AT THE BIBLE STORY, THAT TO STAND UP AND TO RISK LIFE...
  • 23:37 THIS BY THE WAY IS WHY WE SHOULD BE PRAYING FOR OUR TROOPS
  • 23:40 NOT EVEN TACITLY COMMUNICATING THAT IT'S INAPPROPRIATE FOR THEM TO BE TROOPS.
  • 23:45 AND THE REASON WHY WE SHOULD PRAY FOR THEM
  • 23:47 AND LET ME JUST SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THIS IS BECAUSE OF JESUS' OWN WORDS.
  • 23:52 DO YOU RECALL IN THE JOHANNINE GOSPEL, THE GOSPEL OF JOHN WHEN JESUS WENT ON RECORD SAYING,
  • 24:09 I DON'T GLORY IN WAR AND IN THE BLOOD AND THE NEED TO BEAR ARMS AND SEND ARMS IN HARMS WAY
  • 24:15 BUT I DO KNOW IN THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN WICKED AS IT IS
  • 24:20 THAT ITS INCUMBENT UPON THE BETTER PART OF THE CULTURE,
  • 24:24 MEN AND WOMEN THAT ARE INCLINED TO BEAR ARMS TO DEFEND HOME AND HEARTH
  • 24:30 AND THAT OFFENDS NO BIBLICAL VIRTUE.
  • 24:33 WELL I WANT TO BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIRTUE
  • 24:37 AND YOUR KINDNESS IN HELPING ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES DO WHAT ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES DOES.
  • 24:45 AND COMING YOUR WAY SOON IS A BRAND NEW SERIES CALLED "THE WARRIOR KING"
  • 24:51 WHEN WE LOOK AT DAVID-LIKE LEADERSHIP IN THESE GOLIATH-LIKE TIMES.
  • 25:50 I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THAT CLIP OF A COMING ATTRACTION "THE WARRIOR KING".
  • 25:55 I'LL TELL YA I'M HONESTLY, DEEPLY EXCITED TO BRING IT TO YOU
  • 26:00 AND THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME GET IT TO YOU.
  • 26:03 I'D LIKE TO SUMMARIZE WHAT WE'VE DONE IN THIS 30 MINUTES
  • 26:07 PRINCIPALLY MINDFUL OF THE FACT THAT MANY ARE SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN.
  • 26:13 WHAT I WANTED TO REMIND YOU OF IS THAT THIS WORLD IS NOT SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 26:19 INDIVIDUALS ARE SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL IN THIS WORLD PERSONALLY
  • 26:25 BUT THEY NEED TO GET THEIR SELVES ALIGNED WITH THE GOD OF HISTORY
  • 26:28 AND LET HIS STORY BE YOUR STORY.
  • 26:32 AND THE WAY YOU DO THAT IS YOU GET RIGHT WITH GOD, YOU REPENT OF YOUR SINS,
  • 26:35 YOU COMMIT YOUR WAYS TO HIM AND YOU TRUST AND HE WILL ACT.
  • 26:39 WE HAVE A GOOD GOD WHO'S ACTING IN HUMAN AFFAIRS.
  • 26:42 THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US TODAY TO LEARN ABOUT HIS WAYS
  • 26:45 AND AS WE GO, SHA 'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM.
  • 26:49 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
