    javascript: void video_jump(0,18);
  • 00:18 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,22);
  • 00:22 is that they might be saved;
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,24);
  • 00:25 for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,27);
  • 00:28 for the same LORD over all
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,29);
  • 00:30 is rich unto all that call upon him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,43);
  • 00:43 Shalom from the City of the great King, Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,46);
  • 00:46 where we are blessed to bring you some previews
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,48);
  • 00:49 of what's coming up in 2016.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,51);
  • 00:51 We love bringing you Christianity through Jewish eyes
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,54);
  • 00:54 That's our tag line.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,55);
  • 00:56 And it's really true,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,57);
  • 00:57 the two destinies are coming together like never before.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,60);
  • 01:01 Jews and Christians are standing together
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,63);
  • 01:04 in Him and in His Book.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,66);
  • 01:06 We hope you're enjoying our "Times of the Signs" series.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,69);
  • 01:09 We're so blessed to be able to interview some major prophetic
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,72);
  • 01:13 voices in the Land and in the world
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,76);
  • 01:16 regarding the stacking up or the quickening
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,78);
  • 01:19 of the Biblical prophesies that being fulfilled in our time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,82);
  • 01:22 We see Bible prophecy being fulfilled
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,84);
  • 01:25 at a more rapid rate than any time in history.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,87);
  • 01:28 So let's go to some highlights right now
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,89);
  • 01:30 from "Times of the Signs".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,149);
  • 02:29 There's something that's known as the "Blood Moon"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,152);
  • 02:32 And really a "Blood Moon" is just basically a lunar eclipse.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,155);
  • 02:35 It's when the earth comes between the sun
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,159);
  • 02:39 and the moon is eclipsed during that period of time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,162);
  • 02:42 And it kind of turns a reddish hue or kind of an orange hue
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,166);
  • 02:46 and so it's called the "Blood Moon".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,168);
  • 02:48 That's a fairly common phenomenon when you have a lunar eclipse.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,172);
  • 02:53 But what happened in 2014, 2015
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,175);
  • 02:56 is you had what is called a "Lunar Tetrad"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,177);
  • 02:58 where you had 4 of these Blood Moons
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,179);
  • 03:00 in succession that fell on Jewish Feasts days.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,183);
  • 03:03 On April 15, 2014 was the Feast of Passover.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,187);
  • 03:08 And that Fall, October 8, 2014 was the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,191);
  • 03:12 Then the next Spring on April 4, 2015 was another Blood Moon
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,196);
  • 03:16 that fell on the Feast of Passover again.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,199);
  • 03:20 And then in the Fall on September 28, 2015
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,202);
  • 03:23 we had another one on the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,205);
  • 03:25 So many saw this as a great sign in the heavens
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,209);
  • 03:29 because there has been
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,210);
  • 03:31 some times in the past
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,212);
  • 03:32 when significant events happened for Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,215);
  • 03:35 Whenever people look at the Blood Moons
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,217);
  • 03:37 one of the things they point out is this is a great cosmic sign,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,219);
  • 03:40 a great cosmic portent,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,221);
  • 03:41 something is happening.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,223);
  • 03:43 And it really deals with the nation of Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,225);
  • 03:46 because these Blood Moons are happening on these Feasts days.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,228);
  • 03:48 The difficulty with that is these Blood Moons that occurred in 2014 and 2015
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,232);
  • 03:53 only the last one on September 28, 2015
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,236);
  • 03:56 is even visible in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,238);
  • 03:58 Now some will respond to that and say
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,240);
  • 04:00 well with 24-7 news today and satellites and all the things we have
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,244);
  • 04:04 you know people can see it on television.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,246);
  • 04:06 But it seems odd to me that the people there in the place
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,249);
  • 04:10 that this is supposed to be a portent for
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,252);
  • 04:12 but they don't even see it with their own eyes.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,254);
  • 04:15 That seems strange to me.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,256);
  • 04:17 Because they'll go back and point to things like
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,258);
  • 04:19 the star appearing to the Wise Men.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,260);
  • 04:21 But they actually saw it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,262);
  • 04:23 And so to me, making this great sign for the nation of Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,266);
  • 04:27 when they could only see one of the four seems odd to me.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,270);
  • 04:30 So when things like this happen
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,272);
  • 04:32 I think easy for prophecies like this to gain traction
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,275);
  • 04:35 because people kind of have this sense already,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,278);
  • 04:38 a collective sense, that something big's about to happen.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,282);
  • 04:42 You know, Ecclesiastes 1:9
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,284);
  • 04:45 tells us (Speaking Hebrew)
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,291);
  • 04:52 And just today we see the same battle that we saw
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,294);
  • 04:55 in times of Elijah and throughout the Bible
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,297);
  • 04:58 between those who will follow the One, True God
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,300);
  • 05:00 and everything other thing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,301);
  • 05:02 that exalts itself above the knowledge of God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,303);
  • 05:03 For example,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,304);
  • 05:05 right now there is a lot of attention being paid to the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,307);
  • 05:07 Blood Moons and the signs in the heavens
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,309);
  • 05:09 and that's a good thing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,310);
  • 05:10 because the dialogue is now off the Mayan Calendar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,313);
  • 05:13 and off of date setting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,315);
  • 05:15 and looking at the Bible to see what does Scripture say
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,318);
  • 05:18 about what the heavens declare?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,320);
  • 05:21 And the fact is that God does speak through
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,323);
  • 05:23 heavenly signs and wonders.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,324);
  • 05:25 Think about this...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,325);
  • 05:26 In the Tanack , in the Hebrew Scriptures,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,328);
  • 05:28 what we call the "Older Testament",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,330);
  • 05:30 You have the sign of the rainbow given to Noah in Genesis 9
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,333);
  • 05:34 We have the sun standing still for Joshua
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,336);
  • 05:36 so he could complete the battle before him in Joshua 10:13.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,341);
  • 05:41 God uses signs in the heavens to speak to us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,344);
  • 05:45 about what he's doing, where he is, where he's going
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,348);
  • 05:48 and what he's asking of us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,350);
  • 05:51 Even in Isaiah in chapter 38
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,353);
  • 05:54 the sundial went backwards and gave Hezekiah extra time
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,358);
  • 05:58 to live in order to complete his tasks here on the earth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,362);
  • 06:03 And we know that God aligns the calendar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,366);
  • 06:07 in such a way as to present
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,368);
  • 06:09 " Moadim " - "special times"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,371);
  • 06:11 for us to meet with him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,373);
  • 06:13 So there's something about the sun, the moon and the stars,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,376);
  • 06:16 signs in the heavens.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,377);
  • 06:18 And here on top of the Carmel Range
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,380);
  • 06:20 we know that Elijah fought the prophets of Baal
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,383);
  • 06:23 because it was here in this area
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,386);
  • 06:26 that the attack came against the purposes of God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,390);
  • 06:31 And God won that battle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,392);
  • 06:33 just as he wants to win that battle in your life today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,397);
  • 06:38 We get so wrapped up in this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,399);
  • 06:39 Our society is so commercialized
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,401);
  • 06:42 Yes
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,403);
  • 06:43 How many advertising impressions do we see every day?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,406);
  • 06:46 We can't think outside that box anymore.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,409);
  • 06:50 And for Christians that means the danger is of them being ensnared.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,415);
  • 06:56 That's not where our perspective is supposed to be.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,418);
  • 06:58 That's why I think there is a rapture at some point.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,421);
  • 07:02 But we must not have our hearts fall prey
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,426);
  • 07:07 to this environment that we're in right now.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,429);
  • 07:09 That's the greatest danger.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,430);
  • 07:11 What I found striking was
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,433);
  • 07:13 there were a number of occasions
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,435);
  • 07:15 where the exclusivity of Jesus Christ
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,437);
  • 07:18 could have been on the tips of their tongues
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,440);
  • 07:20 especially the Evangelical Christians,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,442);
  • 07:22 and nobody would say,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,444);
  • 07:24 nobody would bring up the fact
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,446);
  • 07:27 that there is an exclusive truth claim
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,448);
  • 07:29 that separates Christianity from the rest of the religious world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,452);
  • 07:33 And that is Jesus Christ.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,454);
  • 07:34 Israel and America are not two.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,457);
  • 07:37 Israel and America are one.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,459);
  • 07:39 We have the same God, the same Bible.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,461);
  • 07:41 Messiah is a Jew from Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,463);
  • 07:43 And all the greatness of America comes from its Christianity.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,467);
  • 07:47 I'm a Jew.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,468);
  • 07:49 And I'm saying all of America's greatness comes from its Christianity.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,471);
  • 07:51 This is a very significant opportunity in time share Yeshua
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,477);
  • 07:57 with Jews, with Gentiles, with Arabs,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,481);
  • 08:02 whoever the LORD puts in front of you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,483);
  • 08:04 Our Messiah is coming soon
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,485);
  • 08:05 so let's be busy
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,487);
  • 08:07 sharing the Gospel with those the LORD puts in front of us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,491);
  • 08:12 You know I don't ignore
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,493);
  • 08:14 the differences between Jews and Christians.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,497);
  • 08:17 There are theological differences
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,499);
  • 08:19 that can't be ignored.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,501);
  • 08:21 And the question about the Messiah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,504);
  • 08:25 will the Messiah be coming back
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,507);
  • 08:27 or will the Messiah be coming?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,509);
  • 08:29 OK? Because you know there's some slight theological differences.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,514);
  • 08:34 But I have no doubt
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,517);
  • 08:38 that when that prophecy is fulfilled from the Book of Isaiah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,522);
  • 08:43 that we are all going to be there together praying on God's Holy Mountain.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,530);
  • 08:51 This upcoming year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,532);
  • 08:52 we're going to see the encore of our series
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,534);
  • 08:55 "Jerusalem: Ancient Gates Future Glory".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,537);
  • 08:58 And I have some amazing news for you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,539);
  • 09:00 We've been contacted by the underground church of China.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,542);
  • 09:03 They have seen our series on the Gates and they want to use it
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,546);
  • 09:06 to help awaken the west to the Church's work
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,549);
  • 09:09 in missions to the Muslims
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,551);
  • 09:11 and also their desire to come to Jerusalem.

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,572);
  • 09:32 And you know there is so many historical

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,648);
  • 10:48 at the Jaffa Gate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,649);
  • 10:50 In fact, we are standing in the Jaffa Gate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,652);
  • 10:53 You know the Scripture says in Psalm 122...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,663);
  • 11:04 It is in this very place, the Old City,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,665);
  • 11:06 that we're going to begin to show you
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,667);
  • 11:08 the eight gates of our LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,669);
  • 11:09 There are seven of them that are open.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,670);
  • 11:11 The eighth gate will only be opened
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,672);
  • 11:12 when the King of Glory comes through.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,682);
  • 11:22 We're here in Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,683);
  • 11:24 Behind me is the Mount of Olives.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,685);
  • 11:26 To my right, the Zion Gate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,688);
  • 11:29 Psalm 87:2 tells us, (Speaking Hebrew)
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,698);
  • 11:38 How much more so right here
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,700);
  • 11:40 at the Zion Gate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,701);
  • 11:42 And you can see behind me
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,703);
  • 11:43 that this gate was won by a hard fought battle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,706);
  • 11:46 Absolutely, you know, Jerusalem was known as Zion
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,709);
  • 11:49 when David conquered this City
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,711);
  • 11:51 and also when the Israelites took back the City in 1967.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,716);
  • 11:56 The Israelites came and took back the City of our LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,720);
  • 12:00 Through this gate and behind me you can see
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,722);
  • 12:03 the literal bullet holes.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,727);
  • 12:07 It was in July 1939
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,733);
  • 12:14 we were taken to the railway station
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,737);
  • 12:17 in the town where we were living,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,739);
  • 12:20 put on a train
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,741);
  • 12:22 and that's it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,743);
  • 12:23 We said goodbye to our parents
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,745);
  • 12:25 who were allowed to bring us to the railway station.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,751);
  • 12:31 And we set off for "Hook of Holland"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,757);
  • 12:37 for the ferry boat to England.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,764);
  • 12:45 We're at the Old City of Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,766);
  • 12:47 standing near the "New Gate".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,768);
  • 12:48 This is the Sha'ar Ha'Chadash.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,770);
  • 12:51 And it is the gate that was the most recently rebuilt
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,774);
  • 12:55 at the end of the 19th century.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,776);
  • 12:57 It is our joy to bring you these gates.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,779);
  • 12:59 This is the Old City behind us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,781);
  • 13:01 The Christian Quarter is behind us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,783);
  • 13:03 Surrounding the Old City is the modern City of Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,787);
  • 13:07 Under this gate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,788);
  • 13:08 which was built by Suleiman the Magnificent
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,790);
  • 13:11 in the mid 16th century
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,792);
  • 13:12 are the remains of an ancient Roman gate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,794);
  • 13:14 which is been excavated by archaeologists.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,796);
  • 13:17 And this Roman gate is quite interesting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,798);
  • 13:19 because it's part of a triumphal gate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,801);
  • 13:22 which was built at the time of Hadrian
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,804);
  • 13:25 when he rebuilt Jerusalem as Aelia Capitolina.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,809);
  • 13:29 This gate has three entrances.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,811);
  • 13:31 Only the left side of this gate has been unearthed.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,815);
  • 13:36 Inside the gate archeologists came across
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,818);
  • 13:38 a large expanse of pavement, stone pavement.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,822);
  • 13:43 And this pavement is what is shown on
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,825);
  • 13:45 the Madaba Map of Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,827);
  • 13:48 It's a Byzantine mosaic map
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,829);
  • 13:50 which represents Jerusalem in the 6th century.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,833);
  • 13:53 And in the middle of this courtyard, paved courtyard,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,837);
  • 13:58 is a representation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,839);
  • 13:59 of a column.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,840);
  • 14:01 And it's quite interesting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,842);
  • 14:02 that the name in Arabic of this gate is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,845);
  • 14:06 "Bab al-Amud"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,847);
  • 14:07 "The Gate of the Column"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,848);
  • 14:09 which continues that tradition going back to Roman times.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,869);
  • 14:29 We're coming to you from Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,870);
  • 14:31 We're here at the Damascus Gate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,872);
  • 14:33 The Damascus Gate is on the North side of the City
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,874);
  • 14:35 and it is one of the most important gates in the City.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,877);
  • 14:37 It is the entrance to all of the Arab life here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,880);
  • 14:40 There's the Market Place that's busy.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,882);
  • 14:42 People are coming and going, buying and selling.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,884);
  • 14:45 It's the hotbed of life; a Muslim expression is here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,887);
  • 14:48 And it is an important gate because it point towards Shechem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,891);
  • 14:51 and also towards Damascus.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,893);
  • 14:53 Katharine -Like we were telling you earlier
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,895);
  • 14:55 each gate is named after the direction to which it is appointed.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,898);
  • 14:59 And this gate is the Northern Gate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,900);
  • 15:01 and it is pointing toward Damascus.

  • 16:44 This year we're going to be adding to Passover and Hanukkah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1007);
  • 16:48 Purim, Shavuot and Sukkot.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1011);

  • 16:59 are not just for the Jewish Feasts.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1021);
  • 17:01 As you know, they're the Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1023);
  • 17:04 They're the " Moadim " of God,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1025);
  • 17:05 "The Appointed Times".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1026);
  • 17:07 And there is so much revelation in them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1029);
  • 17:09 that we decided to continue to make these
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1031);
  • 17:12 right here in the Land of Israel,

  • 17:53 So tell us about celebrating Purim in the Land
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1075);
  • 17:56 or whatever's in your heart regarding this particular holiday festival.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1079);
  • 18:00 Well it's a beautiful celebration
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1082);
  • 18:02 of remembering how God orchestrates
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1084);
  • 18:05 really all things
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1085);
  • 18:06 together for the good of those who love him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1087);
  • 18:08 And so people in Israel really take it extreme.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1091);
  • 18:12 You'll see things set up all over malls and all over the country.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1094);
  • 18:15 Kids getting out of school,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1096);
  • 18:16 all sorts of costumes and dress-up
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1098);
  • 18:19 making a really big party out of it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1101);
  • 18:22 Part of telling the whole "Megillah" the whole "Scroll"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1104);
  • 18:24 is dressing up in the costumes they would wear at the time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1107);
  • 18:27 In fact, here we have Queen Esther.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1109);
  • 18:29 She's with us today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1110);
  • 18:31 You know there's nothing like >>re-enacting the story
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1113);
  • 18:33 to actually get it into your being,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1115);
  • 18:35 in your mind what happened.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1117);
  • 18:37 And Lily is our Queen of the day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1120);
  • 18:40 We used to have Stephen as the King.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1122);
  • 18:42 And you used to play the bad Haman.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1124);
  • 18:45 But you know what?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1126);
  • 18:46 There's nothing like Purim.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1127);
  • 18:48 Right Lily?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1128);
  • 18:48 Don't you love it?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1129);
  • 18:49 Yeah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1130);
  • 18:51 Would you take that scepter
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1131);
  • 18:52 and bring it back to the King now for us?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1134);
  • 18:54 Myles - Thank you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1137);
  • 18:58 Alright, well our Sukkah is looking good.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1140);
  • 19:01 It's coming along.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1141);
  • 19:02 It's beautiful!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1143);
  • 19:03 And if you could put that here
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1145);
  • 19:05 I'm going to hang this up.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1146);
  • 19:06 We'll keep working on it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1147);
  • 19:08 I'll be back.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1148);
  • 19:08 Alright.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1152);
  • 19:12 Myles - There's Seven Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1153);
  • 19:14 Remember they're not the feasts of the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1156);
  • 19:16 They're the Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1157);
  • 19:18 They belong to him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1159);
  • 19:19 One of them, the Sixth, Yom Kippur
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1161);
  • 19:22 is a day of fasting.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1163);
  • 19:23 It's a solemn day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1164);
  • 19:24 It's the most Holy day of the year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1166);
  • 19:27 It's the day in which in the old country, in New York City
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1169);
  • 19:30 when I was a child we would go to Hebrew School, we would fast
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1172);
  • 19:33 as friends of mine and I, we would compete with each other to see
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1176);
  • 19:37 how long during the day we could go
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1178);
  • 19:39 before we would give in and eat that forbidden jelly bean,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1182);
  • 19:42 or some kind of treat.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1185);
  • 19:45 Thank God for the Maccabees
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1186);
  • 19:47 And I'm glad you are dressed as one
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1188);
  • 19:48 because they stood up
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1190);
  • 19:50 and they took the Word to heart
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1191);
  • 19:52 and they said, no we will not stand for the mixture.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1194);
  • 19:55 We will let the LORD be our defender.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1196);
  • 19:57 And not only will the Lord be our defender,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1199);
  • 19:59 but we will defend the Word
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1201);
  • 20:01 and we will not be part of the mixture.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1202);
  • 20:03 Yes, there is always a spiritual battle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1205);
  • 20:06 over Israel and over the Jewish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1207);
  • 20:08 and over you as a person of faith
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1210);
  • 20:10 whose been grafted-in to the commonwealth of Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1213);
  • 20:13 according to Ephesians Chapter 2.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1215);
  • 20:16 That spiritual warfare continues to today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1217);
  • 20:18 Here we are in Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1219);
  • 20:19 with our Seder meal before us,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1221);
  • 20:22 sharing with you the miracle of Passover.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1224);
  • 20:24 There's so many wonderful images that God has given to us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1228);
  • 20:28 They're actually a foreshadow, a mikra of what he does completely in himself.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1232);
  • 20:33 When he delivered the people out of Egypt Myles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1235);
  • 20:35 he said the "Great I Am's" right?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1236);
  • 20:37 He said that he would deliver them out of bondage,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1239);
  • 20:39 and he would redeem them,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1240);
  • 20:41 he would rescue them with his strong right arm
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1244);
  • 20:44 and he would call them to himself and they would be his people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1249);
  • 20:49 He would adopt them.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1250);
  • 20:50 He would make them his own people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1252);
  • 20:53 It's really true.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1253);
  • 20:54 And not only do we have that historical reality
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1256);
  • 20:56 but we see it in the midst of the meal.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1258);
  • 20:59 Those 4 statements that Katharine mentioned,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1260);
  • 21:01 the "I Wills" you might say,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1262);
  • 21:03 are symbolized in the 4 cups that are drunk
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1265);
  • 21:05 during the Passover Seder.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1268);
  • 21:08 We've begun working on a series
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1270);
  • 21:10 that I'm hoping to call "Out of the Ashes L'chaim "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1274);
  • 21:14 I'm really hoping that we can get you a sense
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1276);
  • 21:17 of the restoration that is going on in Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1279);
  • 21:20 from the Holocaust into the modern era.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1282);
  • 21:22 Now we know that historically
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1284);
  • 21:25 the Jewish people have been here for thousands of years.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1287);
  • 21:28 We also know that after World War II
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1290);
  • 21:30 a special anointing and restoration began
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1294);
  • 21:34 that is still unfolding before our eyes.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1296);
  • 21:37 So we want to bring you that contrast
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1298);
  • 21:39 because in the west we really don't see
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1301);
  • 21:41 the life that is taking place here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1303);
  • 21:43 That's why we call it "L'chaim" - "To Life".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1305);
  • 21:45 Because really what we get in the west
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1307);
  • 21:48 is often just the bad news,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1309);
  • 21:50 the wars and the difficulties,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1311);
  • 21:52 the rumors of wars.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1313);
  • 21:53 The reality is life is ongoing here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1316);
  • 21:56 People are excited, happy, looking forward.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1319);
  • 21:59 There is incredible innovation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1321);
  • 22:01 and the future is in view
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1322);
  • 22:03 This is a Land of strength and life
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1325);
  • 22:05 and we want to bring that to you
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1326);
  • 22:07 while recognizing the difficulties
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1329);
  • 22:09 that have brought this nation to be reborn.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1333);
  • 22:13 Just in the year 1941
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1337);
  • 22:18 they begin to send Jews from the Middle East
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1343);
  • 22:23 and they began to Poland
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1347);
  • 22:28 And my cousins, they went in the 5th transportation to Poland.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1356);
  • 22:36 And they didn't come back,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1358);
  • 22:38 nobody from them.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1361);
  • 22:42 It was the sister from my mother and the sister from my father
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1367);
  • 22:47 with the kids.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1368);
  • 22:49 They didn't come back anymore.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1372);
  • 22:53 How long were you in the camp before you were liberated?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1377);
  • 22:58 In Theresienstadt it was 2 and half years.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1383);
  • 23:04 In October 1944 they sent many, many people to Auschwitz.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1390);
  • 23:11 I don't know why
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1394);
  • 23:15 but in this time we didn't know where we were going.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1401);
  • 23:21 They told us we were going to another ghetto
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1405);
  • 23:26 because we have not space anymore in Thereseinstadt.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1412);
  • 23:33 But in this time how they sent us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1419);
  • 23:40 with a....
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1426);
  • 23:46 It was a train for animals, not for people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1436);
  • 23:57 In 1941 the German Army occupied Poland.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1444);
  • 24:04 Yes
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1445);
  • 24:06 And immediately they made a demand that all the Jews
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1454);
  • 24:14 would bring all their valuables to them, everything,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1457);
  • 24:17 anything of value, gold, anything, everything.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1462);
  • 24:22 And they were already with the rifles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1465);
  • 24:25 so you cannot talk to rifles, you know?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1471);
  • 24:32 So all the Jews brought their things.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1474);
  • 24:35 And then what they did, they sent wagons to all the homes
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1478);
  • 24:38 and got everything else plus all the Jews to take them to a ghetto.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1484);
  • 24:44 But the locals chose 5 families...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1491);
  • 24:51 5 or 6 families to do work.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1495);
  • 24:56 It's like the better Jews.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1498);
  • 24:59 There's no such thing as "good Jew" but maybe the better ones
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1502);
  • 25:02 that are very professional, they have good relations with them.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1505);
  • 25:05 So we put the 5 or 6 families in a small ghetto in the edge of town.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1513);
  • 25:14 So the Christians in the town chose your family as a family not to be sent away.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1522);
  • 25:23 Not to proceed to the ghetto.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1524);
  • 25:25 Wow...hmm
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1526);
  • 25:27 Miracle one.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1530);
  • 25:30 Miracle ten.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1533);
  • 25:33 Miracle a hundred.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1534);
  • 25:35 I am a living miracle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1536);
  • 25:37 Yes
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1538);
  • 25:38 And I still live on miracles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1542);
  • 25:42 That I'm here talking to you is also a miracle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1544);
  • 25:44 Yes
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1546);
  • 25:46 Myles, it's such a joy to be here in this Land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1548);
  • 25:48 We are here at the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1549);
  • 25:50 And you can feel the joy in this place.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1552);
  • 25:53 And it is our joy to bring you
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1555);
  • 25:55 programs that are filmed here, that are based here,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1558);
  • 25:59 that are based in the Word.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1560);
  • 26:01 And we thank you that it's because of your gifts of funds
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1563);
  • 26:04 and your partnership with us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1565);
  • 26:05 that we are able to do this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1567);
  • 26:07 Yeah, you know we are going to do a series in the coming year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1570);
  • 26:11 that is about remembering the holocaust
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1573);
  • 26:14 and looking at the future of Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1576);
  • 26:16 and the goodness of God and his restoration.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1578);
  • 26:18 It's so important when we interviewed the survivors
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1581);
  • 26:21 at a holocaust home here in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1584);
  • 26:24 The depth of their suffering
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1586);
  • 26:26 and yet the emerging of life is so dramatic.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1589);
  • 26:30 It really is a picture of Israel itself.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1592);
  • 26:32 Right, you know it is our privilege and our duty to remember,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1596);
  • 26:36 to remember the suffering that happened in the holocaust
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1599);
  • 26:39 and to record it for the next generation.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1601);
  • 26:42 And we thank you that you have enabled us to do that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1604);
  • 26:45 And you have enabled us to go and to document these stories
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1609);
  • 26:50 so that they get put into the annals of time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1612);
  • 26:53 Yes, really that's true.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1614);
  • 26:55 We want to remember the suffering
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1616);
  • 26:56 but we want to look forward to the joy of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1618);
  • 26:59 And I'd like to end this program by blessing you
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1622);
  • 27:02 with a blessing that goes back to the time of Moses and Aaron.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1625);
  • 27:05 You know, God told Moses to have Aaron stand before the people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1629);
  • 27:09 and whenever this blessing is spoken
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1631);
  • 27:11 that he would put His Name upon the people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1633);
  • 27:14 And I believe that he wants to do that today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1635);
  • 27:15 He wants to place His Name on you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1637);
  • 27:18 So receive this not from Myles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1639);
  • 27:20 but from the Land from the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1644);
  • 27:24 (Myles sings "Aaronic Blessing")
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1666);
  • 27:47 "The LORD bless you and keep you"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1669);
  • 27:49 "The LORD be gracious unto you"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1670);
  • 27:50 "cause his face to shine upon you"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1672);
  • 27:53 "The LORD lift up his countenance upon you"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1674);
  • 27:55 "And grant you his Shalom "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1677);
  • 27:58 B'Shem Yeshua Hamashiach Amen.
