Caption transcript for Beauty For Ashes: “The Ground” (2/9)

  • 00:01 After the ashes of the Holocaust
  • 00:03 Israel was reborn.
  • 00:05 Today on this program we're going to see
  • 00:06 how these contrasting events
  • 00:09 fulfill Bible prophecy.
  • 00:34 ISAIAH 61:3 "I will consol those who mourn in Zion,"
  • 00:38 ISAIAH 61:3 "to give them beauty for ashes,"
  • 00:41 ISAIAH 61:3 "the oil of joy for mourning,"
  • 00:45 ISAIAH 61:3 "the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness,"
  • 00:49 ISAIAH 61:3 "that they might be called oaks of righteousness,"
  • 00:53 ISAIAH 61:3 "the planting of Adonai, that He may be glorified."
  • 01:02 " Shalom Haverim ", "Welcome Friends"
  • 01:04 Welcome to our program.
  • 01:05 I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 01:06 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:08 The series that we have for you today,
  • 01:09 it is called "Beauty for Ashes".
  • 01:12 You know, the horror of the Holocaust
  • 01:15 we're contrasting with the vibrancy
  • 01:17 of the new State of Israel.
  • 01:19 Yeah, it's a miracle.
  • 01:20 It is a miracle that out of that horror, as you say,
  • 01:24 this incredibly vibrant,
  • 01:25 forward thinking, inventive, creative,
  • 01:28 loving nation has been born.
  • 01:31 The Jewish people - we don't like to use the word "Holocaust",
  • 01:33 that's the Greek.
  • 01:34 So we say " Ha'Shoah "
  • 01:36 which means the destruction or the catastrophe.
  • 01:38 And it's more of an understanding of what happened
  • 01:41 because the other words seem to imply
  • 01:43 some kind of fiery sacrifice.
  • 01:45 It's related to pagan thought.
  • 01:47 And so Jewish people use " Ha'Shoah "
  • 01:49 There's even a day for celebrating remembering.
  • 01:51 " Yom Ha'Shoah "
  • 01:52 Yes, observing what was lost there.
  • 01:54 Our typical associations
  • 01:56 have to do with the crematoria,
  • 01:58 and the graves
  • 01:59 and all of the things we've seen in movies
  • 02:01 and heard over the years.
  • 02:03 But sometimes the Nazi's
  • 02:06 in their expedient, dramatic way at the time
  • 02:08 were in such a hurry to get rid of people
  • 02:11 that they would just take them out
  • 02:12 and shoot them without any discussion.
  • 02:14 So we took some time to go to what's called
  • 02:17 the "Execution Wall", or the "Death Wall"
  • 02:20 And it was very emotional.
  • 02:23 Also called the "Black Wall", speaking of death.
  • 02:26 There's just no words to describe what you
  • 02:30 feel when you're in Auschwitz.
  • 02:33 You actually do hear the blood still crying out.
  • 02:36 Like in reference to Abel
  • 02:39 the blood was spilled by Cain.
  • 02:41 You know, God marks those things
  • 02:43 that aren't supposed to have happened.
  • 02:45 So let's go now
  • 02:47 and hear more from Myles in Poland.
  • 03:31 We're here on our way
  • 03:33 to the infamous "Death Wall",
  • 03:36 the execution place.
  • 03:39 On this side is the Building 10
  • 03:42 Block 10 which was sealed to
  • 03:45 try to prevent the people from hearing
  • 03:48 the sounds of the executions.
  • 03:49 But it was here that the experiments
  • 03:51 were beginning to take place
  • 03:53 including forced sterilization.
  • 03:55 You have to know that the Nazi's
  • 03:57 in their desire to create a master race
  • 03:59 started with the Slov's and the Pole's
  • 04:01 and then the Jews and the Gypsies, etc.
  • 04:03 because their desire was to
  • 04:06 in several generations
  • 04:07 wipe out any of the inferior races.
  • 04:09 On this side is Block 11.
  • 04:12 Block 11 was where all hope was lost.
  • 04:14 They were on their way to extermination.
  • 04:16 They would be brought out here to be shot.
  • 04:19 The most salient thing is that the Germans
  • 04:21 being German used German law so called
  • 04:24 in order to make this appear as a courtroom
  • 04:28 where people were politically being executed.
  • 04:31 So they would be called out on
  • 04:34 their infraction of the German law
  • 04:36 and then shot here at the "Death Wall".
  • 04:48 This is the execution wall,
  • 04:50 the "Death Wall".
  • 04:52 This is where the blood was so thick
  • 04:54 they had to periodically change the sand
  • 04:58 to soak up the blood of the prisoners
  • 05:00 that were executed here.
  • 05:02 You have to remember
  • 05:03 this was a scientific
  • 05:06 extermination over many years.
  • 05:10 You know it is so sobering to be here
  • 05:12 because you can literally hear
  • 05:14 the blood crying out from this place.
  • 05:16 It's surreal and it's a place that
  • 05:20 was important for us to come
  • 05:22 not only to pay our respects to
  • 05:24 the people that passed here
  • 05:26 but to remember
  • 05:27 and to pass on the memory.
  • 05:28 The women that were tortured.
  • 05:30 The men that were tortured.
  • 05:32 The children who died,
  • 05:33 simply because their whole crime
  • 05:35 was because they were a Jew.
  • 05:37 You know it was cruel beyond cruel.
  • 05:39 The women were shaven,
  • 05:41 they were taking their clothes off,
  • 05:43 they were tattooed,
  • 05:44 they were become animals
  • 05:47 and the whole crime, again
  • 05:49 was because they were a Jew, or
  • 05:51 maybe somebody who
  • 05:52 helped the Jewish people.
  • 05:54 So we need to remember.
  • 05:56 We need to know that humanism
  • 05:58 like Myles was saying, will not fix this.
  • 06:00 We have to understand that the knowledge of
  • 06:03 good and evil is the knowledge of death.
  • 06:06 We have to partake of the knowledge of the tree of life.
  • 06:10 It's hard to speak from this place
  • 06:14 knowing that it was a systematic place of execution.
  • 06:17 It's hard to do but as Katharine said
  • 06:20 we want you to remember,
  • 06:23 we want you to never forget,
  • 06:25 and we want you to stand with Israel and the Jewish people,
  • 06:28 and we want you to know that Yeshua is the only answer.
  • 06:51 I think you can see from these segments
  • 06:53 that we were overcome with emotion.
  • 06:56 It was really hard to be just standing there
  • 06:58 and really sense the history
  • 07:02 much more than I expected to.
  • 07:04 You sense what man can do when
  • 07:07 he's inspired by the Devil.
  • 07:09 And that's the exact opposite
  • 07:11 of what the modern State of Israel is.
  • 07:13 It's man inspired by God and His Word
  • 07:16 and the Word coming alive.
  • 07:17 Yeah, they didn't bother -
  • 07:19 We often associate Holocaust movies and history
  • 07:24 with the showers and the gas and the crematorium.
  • 07:27 But sometimes the Nazi's they didn't want to bother
  • 07:30 and they would just put certain people in these barracks
  • 07:33 and then just slaughter them with gun shot and
  • 07:35 so there's this wall that you saw.
  • 07:38 And the degradation was so systematic.
  • 07:41 There was this high level of care for animals.
  • 07:45 There was a real ethical animal treatment culture in Germany at the time.
  • 07:49 And so to put the Jews in cattle cars
  • 07:52 was to basically say that they were less value than the animals.
  • 07:56 Wow!
  • 07:56 Well we talked with two survivors and
  • 07:58 we're going to hear their stories now of
  • 08:00 how they were transported in
  • 08:02 these cattle cars to Auschwitz.
  • 08:13 We were herded in from our houses into a Ghetto -
  • 08:18 a specific area of the town where all
  • 08:21 the Jews were gathered.
  • 08:24 And we were told that we were going to
  • 08:27 be taken to work in farms in Hungary.
  • 08:32 My mother made from canvas,
  • 08:35 rucksacks for us.
  • 08:38 She filled them in with all the daily needs
  • 08:41 we needed to be taken wherever.
  • 08:45 One morning we had orders to get ready -
  • 08:49 we were going to be marched
  • 08:52 into this brick factory
  • 08:54 from where we're going to be taken by train.
  • 08:57 So we filled up these rucksacks and what it is
  • 09:00 very much in my memory is when we put on the
  • 09:04 rucksacks with the weight on them
  • 09:06 they started tearing.
  • 09:08 And we had to pull them.
  • 09:11 And everybody helped everybody with our bags
  • 09:15 and we marched for nearly 4 hours
  • 09:17 till we got to the brick factory.
  • 09:19 Half of the rucksacks were left on the floor,
  • 09:21 we couldn't cope.
  • 09:23 Then we had to sleep on the floor in this brick factory
  • 09:27 till our group was ready
  • 09:32 to get on to this cattle track train.
  • 09:35 We got on to these cattle track trains.
  • 09:38 We were about 120 people in a cattle track train -
  • 09:42 There was no room to move -
  • 09:43 there was no room sit -
  • 09:45 just like sardines.
  • 09:47 Standing - Yes.
  • 09:48 And the train started to move
  • 09:51 and my father looked out through that little window
  • 09:55 and saw the names of the stations.
  • 09:58 He said children it's no good,
  • 10:01 they are taking us to Poland.
  • 10:03 And we knew already then
  • 10:04 what was happening to the Jews in Poland -
  • 10:07 they were killing them.
  • 10:08 But we couldn't do anything about it.
  • 10:11 The ride in the cattle car was
  • 10:14 horrific in the sense people were crammed in a car
  • 10:20 going to who knows where.
  • 10:23 It was very hot.
  • 10:27 It was the last week in May.
  • 10:30 This little crowded tin box of a car
  • 10:35 heated up tremendously.
  • 10:37 So when train would stop -
  • 10:40 because there was no other way for us to ask for anything
  • 10:44 we would ask the guard by our cattle car for water.
  • 10:50 He would always say five gold watches.
  • 10:54 They were very interested in gold.
  • 10:57 When the grownups gathered that
  • 11:00 he would get a bucket of water
  • 11:03 from the ground outside
  • 11:05 and kind of throw it
  • 11:07 towards one of the windows.
  • 11:09 So I wondered at the time
  • 11:12 why do we keep asking for gold watches -
  • 11:15 giving them gold watches and asking for water?
  • 11:19 Because there had to be another reason.
  • 11:23 It wasn't for the water we were getting.
  • 11:27 I didn't really understand it until 1978 when
  • 11:33 I realized that the reason we were trying to find out
  • 11:39 that we were asking for water
  • 11:42 and giving them gold watches -
  • 11:44 we were trying to find out where they were taking us.
  • 11:48 We did not believe them that they were going to
  • 11:51 take us to Hungary to a slave labor camp.
  • 11:56 We were very concerned that we would be
  • 11:59 taken to Germany to be murdered.
  • 12:03 It was the third night in the cattle car.
  • 12:07 The train stopped, we asked for water
  • 12:10 and answer came back in German.
  • 12:14 I was 10 years old.
  • 12:16 I instantly understood what happened.
  • 12:20 The train has crossed the border into Germany and
  • 12:24 our Hungarian guards have been changed to German.
  • 12:29 That of course meant that we were not going to
  • 12:34 Hungary to a labor camp but were being taken to
  • 12:37 Germany to be murdered.
  • 12:40 Everybody in our cattle car understood it and
  • 12:44 people were praying.
  • 12:58 One of the common themes
  • 12:59 we hear in these testimonies
  • 13:02 is the systematic deception that was
  • 13:04 used by the Nazi's to kind of bring
  • 13:07 a false calm to people
  • 13:09 so they could take them into
  • 13:11 the next step of destruction.
  • 13:13 Well people think that
  • 13:14 the Jewish people didn't resist at all.
  • 13:16 They did resist.
  • 13:18 But any time they did resist
  • 13:19 their family members were tortured or
  • 13:22 that resistance was put out immediately.
  • 13:25 Right, there was also this continued
  • 13:27 false hope that was given.
  • 13:29 That's why we contrast in an earlier program
  • 13:31 the difference between false hope
  • 13:33 and "Hatikva" "The Hope".
  • 13:34 And we really hear that from these survivors
  • 13:36 that they were little by little
  • 13:40 just lied to until they were able to be
  • 13:43 taken to where the Nazi's had them go.
  • 13:46 And we understand from this that we
  • 13:49 wrestle not against flesh and blood.
  • 13:51 This is a spiritual battle.
  • 13:53 It manifests itself in the earth
  • 13:55 through real people doing real evil.
  • 13:56 We need to attend to that.
  • 13:58 But ultimately its a war over the souls of men.
  • 14:00 It goes back to the Garden of Eden.
  • 14:02 It goes back to the fall Satan.
  • 14:05 And we see that playing out in these lives
  • 14:08 as they are being systematically reduced
  • 14:11 and being flayed open by this death machine.
  • 14:17 It's very sobering.
  • 14:20 We'll be back after this.
  • 14:29 Our offer this week "The Holocaust".
  • 14:32 A series of six programs that covers
  • 14:35 the most tragic event in world history.
  • 14:37 Zola Levitt reports on the awful Holocaust
  • 14:40 through hard hitting interviews
  • 14:42 and location taping at the Dachau concentration camp.
  • 14:46 As an insidious form of anti-Semitism
  • 14:48 now grows around the globe
  • 14:50 it behooves us to be aware of
  • 14:52 the historical perspective that
  • 14:54 brought Hitler's regime into power.
  • 14:57 "The Holocaust"
  • 14:58 featuring the teaching of Zola Levitt.
  • 15:02 Hi, you know so much is happening
  • 15:03 in the world today
  • 15:04 regarding Bible prophecy
  • 15:06 and especially in Israel too.
  • 15:08 this is the lens through which
  • 15:10 everything has to be told.
  • 15:11 And that's what we're doing
  • 15:13 here at Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 15:15 We're only able to do it
  • 15:16 as you're able to give.
  • 15:18 Your generous donations keep our program going.
  • 15:20 So please continue to give as you are able.
  • 15:23 And we will continue to bring you the news
  • 15:26 through this Word.
  • 15:35 ♪ Background Music ♪
  • 16:06 Come with us to Israel
  • 16:07 on one of our tours.
  • 16:08 It is the miracle
  • 16:10 of the rebirth of Israel.
  • 16:11 And you're feet will stand
  • 16:13 where the patriarchs stood.
  • 16:15 It's a Land that speaks
  • 16:17 of prophecy fulfilled.
  • 16:18 It's a miracle.
  • 16:20 And I love taking
  • 16:21 pilgrims with us.
  • 16:22 We go Fall and Spring.
  • 16:24 Yeah, its really wonderful to see
  • 16:25 how God has overcome the attempt to
  • 16:27 wipe out the Jewish people.
  • 16:30 We see this in the 20th Century with the Nazi's.
  • 16:32 They killed one-third of all the Jews in the world.
  • 16:35 And yet God has redeemed the Land
  • 16:37 and brought the people back.
  • 16:38 And there's going to be more and more
  • 16:40 opportunity to be there looking for
  • 16:43 the coming of Messiah.
  • 16:44 We just encourage you to come with us to Israel.
  • 16:47 And one of the things you will
  • 16:49 see in this upcoming segment
  • 16:50 is the abundance of life.
  • 16:51 So let's go to the market place in Jerusalem.
  • 17:06 We're here in Machne Yehuda
  • 17:09 the Jewish Market.
  • 17:10 It's coequally called "The Shook".
  • 17:12 And really its the scene of
  • 17:14 unparalleled busy-ness
  • 17:16 especially now during Purim.
  • 17:18 It's a time of celebration
  • 17:20 You might see some costumes.
  • 17:22 We're here and one of the stories that has to be told is
  • 17:25 the incredible power of the reclamation of the Land.
  • 17:28 The reclaiming of the Land
  • 17:30 and the power of the reclaiming of the water through
  • 17:33 the technologies that have developed here.
  • 17:35 So many things, innovative things
  • 17:38 have taken place here in Israel
  • 17:40 that have not been anywhere else in the world.
  • 17:41 For example, I know that you have tasted
  • 17:44 cherry tomatoes during your life.
  • 17:46 No question about it.
  • 17:48 You've tasted these cherry tomatoes -
  • 17:49 they were developed here in Israel.
  • 17:51 You might find that some things
  • 17:53 that are typically smaller and easier
  • 17:56 to deal with in a compact way
  • 17:58 have been developed here - Why?
  • 17:59 Because its a tiny place.
  • 18:01 This whole country is the size of the State of New Jersey.
  • 18:05 And so what's gone on here is a dream come true
  • 18:08 of Green technology
  • 18:10 developing all kinds of ways
  • 18:14 of technologically improving the amount
  • 18:17 of produce that can come from the Land.
  • 18:20 For example, the "Bread Basket of Israel",
  • 18:23 The Jezreel Valley.
  • 18:25 We found that the original wheat
  • 18:27 that we see all over the Land,
  • 18:29 all over the world,
  • 18:30 the original wheat could be traced to the Jezreel Valley.
  • 18:34 What does that mean?
  • 18:35 It means that - surprise,
  • 18:37 the "Bread of Life" began right here in Israel.
  • 18:40 And that is not surprising
  • 18:42 as we know Mashiach has come from Beit Lahm
  • 18:45 from Bethlehem, the "House of Bread".
  • 18:48 We see this throughout the Land,
  • 18:50 this incredible produce,
  • 18:51 the development of a concentrated amounts
  • 18:55 of food for a small place,
  • 18:56 the small amount of land.
  • 18:58 When you see this variety,
  • 19:00 all this incredible variety of produce,
  • 19:02 everywhere we go in the Land you'll see this.
  • 19:04 Developed originally in the kibbutzim .
  • 19:07 Kibbutzim comes from the root word " qibbetz "
  • 19:10 Jeremiah 29:14 , speaks about qibbetz , about "gathering".
  • 19:14 And that's what we see here.
  • 19:16 Look at these, dried fruits, incredible.
  • 19:19 We have to try this mish mish, an apricot.
  • 19:22 We'll see if my friend will let me buy one from him.
  • 19:24 Thank you.
  • 19:26 I will pick the most beautiful mish mish I could find.
  • 19:31 I wish you could taste this.
  • 19:33 We have the best produce in the world here,
  • 19:36 developed without hardly any water
  • 19:39 because the water system is one of
  • 19:41 the great stories of Israel.
  • 19:44 For example, the fish here.
  • 19:47 In order to develop the fish farms
  • 19:49 water had to be reclaimed.
  • 19:51 So desalinization is one of the major projects of Israel.
  • 19:54 80% of water used in this Land is reclaimed water,
  • 19:58 some through desalinization,
  • 20:00 some through the incredible drip system
  • 20:02 of irrigation that was developed here in Israel.
  • 20:05 And it's interesting how that happened.
  • 20:07 A man name Simcha Blass
  • 20:09 in around the 1950's,
  • 20:11 he was walking along his kibbutz
  • 20:14 and he saw that some of the trees
  • 20:15 were larger than the others.
  • 20:18 And he went to one of the larger trees
  • 20:19 and he found a broken pipe from the water system
  • 20:22 that flowed from the Galilee to the rest of the nation.
  • 20:25 A broken pipe.
  • 20:26 And he noticed that the dripping
  • 20:28 from the broken pipe
  • 20:29 created this incredible growth.
  • 20:31 And the idea for drip irrigation
  • 20:34 began here and has been exported from here to 110 nations.
  • 20:39 One of the great stories of the reclamation
  • 20:41 are the fish farms.
  • 20:42 Sea Bass, Tilapia, Baramundi.
  • 20:45 These fish are developed
  • 20:46 in fish ponds throughout the country.
  • 20:48 And then the waste water from the fish farms is
  • 20:51 used to irrigate the olive groves.
  • 20:54 It's a complete story of Green technology
  • 20:57 in its best case possible.
  • 20:59 It is being developed everywhere.
  • 21:02 And the story of Israel
  • 21:04 is the story of reclamation,
  • 21:05 it's the story of Green coming from brown
  • 21:08 of the incredible growth of reclamation and restoration.
  • 21:12 It's part of God's story for this Land
  • 21:14 which is the story of restoration
  • 21:16 and is leading to a spiritual restoration
  • 21:19 that will usher in the coming of Messiah .
  • 21:35 Here we are in the Shook on a Friday morning.
  • 21:38 People are getting ready for Shabbat .
  • 21:39 It's actually Purim.
  • 21:41 But you know what?
  • 21:42 Mark Twain said in 1867,
  • 21:55 It was desolate.
  • 21:57 But the Israelis came back to the Land
  • 21:59 and the Land began to flourish.
  • 22:01 It began to bud.
  • 22:02 It began to produce.
  • 22:05 You know its said that
  • 22:06 the Land smiled on the Israelis
  • 22:08 as they came back.
  • 22:10 There were swamps that they drained.
  • 22:13 There were rocks Myles that they had to unearth.
  • 22:16 And now instead of swamps and desert and rocky terrain
  • 22:21 there are farms, there are vineyards
  • 22:23 and there are just beautiful orchards
  • 22:25 that produce this kind of fruit.
  • 22:27 You see this Land is flowing with milk and honey now
  • 22:30 because of the Israelis back
  • 22:33 and because most of all
  • 22:34 Yashem's , God's promise to this Land.
  • 22:37 That it would once again bring forth life.
  • 22:40 At the beginning of this rebirth
  • 22:42 one-third of the immigrants had malaria.
  • 22:46 But 20 years after the State was established
  • 22:49 malaria was completely eliminated
  • 22:51 because the swamps were drained.
  • 22:53 At first the Israelis brought in Eucalyptus trees
  • 22:56 hoping that they would drain the water.
  • 22:58 But that didn't work.
  • 22:59 So they had to drain the swamps
  • 23:01 out towards the Mediterranean
  • 23:03 in order to dry out the Land.
  • 23:05 But they made some discoveries along the way.
  • 23:07 One is that in the sandy soil
  • 23:09 one of the crops that will flourish
  • 23:11 is a vineyard, or the grapes.
  • 23:13 And so the fulfillment of Amos Chapter 9 that
  • 23:16 the mountains would flow with sweet wine
  • 23:19 came to be once again.
  • 23:21 Mark Twain, he saw for a moment
  • 23:23 what was going on
  • 23:24 but he didn't see what God was about to do.
  • 23:26 Yeah, and it also goes on
  • 23:28 and says in Amos 9
  • 23:35 So this is a further restoration.
  • 23:37 You see they came back
  • 23:38 and God fulfilled His Word to them.
  • 23:41 We are living here in prophecy.
  • 23:43 Isaiah 35 says,
  • 23:48 And we are seeing it bloom once again.
  • 23:50 This is the story of the Greening of the earth.
  • 23:54 80% of the water that's used in Israel is reclaimed.
  • 23:57 The 2nd largest reclamation nation is Spain
  • 24:01 with only 10% of their water being reused.
  • 24:04 So this is a real success story.
  • 24:06 Everything here is dependant on the water
  • 24:08 but the Israelis have understood
  • 24:10 how to reclaim, how to desalinate
  • 24:13 and how to use water
  • 24:14 in ways that could never be see before.
  • 24:17 Every day 450 million cubic meters of water
  • 24:21 are reclaimed and used in Israel.
  • 24:24 Yeah, and it's been also said
  • 24:26 that there's nothing like the Israelis
  • 24:29 cause they don't keep all these
  • 24:30 wonderful technology breakthroughs
  • 24:32 they share it with the world.
  • 24:34 Grain-pro is a covering that's
  • 24:37 used over the freshly picked grain to keep
  • 24:39 the rodents and the bugs from it.
  • 24:41 They've exported that technology to countries
  • 24:44 that don't even have diplomatic ties to Israel,
  • 24:46 such as Pakistan.
  • 24:48 And one of the most incredible finds has been the " talia ".
  • 24:51 It's called "God's dew".
  • 24:53 They notice that if they were careful
  • 24:55 to collect the dew in circular tubs
  • 24:58 around the trees, around the plants,
  • 25:00 they could increase the use of water.
  • 25:02 And so they have a technology called
  • 25:04 " Talia " or "God's dew"
  • 25:06 that uses every single bit of water from heaven and
  • 25:09 that comes up from below the earth.
  • 25:12 So we invite you to come Israel
  • 25:14 and come smell the rose that is blooming.
  • 25:17 Come and taste and see the fruit of the LORD here in Israel.
  • 25:35 After being barren for generations
  • 25:38 the Land of Israel is back in full bloom.
  • 25:41 The Land is teaming with agriculture.
  • 25:43 And just the ingenuity of the drip system alone
  • 25:46 has caused it to bloom Myles.
  • 25:48 I was thinking as you were saying that
  • 25:50 the Land is blooming
  • 25:52 and business is booming.
  • 25:54 It is just going in every direction.
  • 25:56 High tech and medicine and education
  • 25:59 its just full of life.
  • 26:01 When you look at what we've seen in Auschwitz
  • 26:03 and what we've seen of the darkness and
  • 26:05 now to see what's happening in the Land,
  • 26:07 its overwhelming.
  • 26:08 I never get tired of looking into
  • 26:10 and finding out what God is doing there
  • 26:12 because its such a model
  • 26:13 for how resurrection life comes from the
  • 26:16 God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • 26:18 Yeshua went into the depths of the hell pit, the grave
  • 26:22 and came out on the other side.
  • 26:24 He's the first fruits of many brethren so
  • 26:26 the picture in His life as our Messiah
  • 26:29 of death and then life coming.
  • 26:31 The same thing with Israel.
  • 26:33 Israel like Lazarus was dead and now it's alive.
  • 26:35 And that's possible for anyone who will say yes to the LORD
  • 26:38 say yes to the Messiah .
  • 26:40 And I think that's probably why we get
  • 26:43 so excited about people coming with us
  • 26:44 because they -
  • 26:45 It's a foretaste of what we'll see.
  • 26:47 Exactly.
  • 26:48 The beginning of the banqueting table,
  • 26:50 the beginning or the foreshadowing
  • 26:51 of what heaven will be like,
  • 26:53 what life is like
  • 26:54 in the presence of the LORD forever.
  • 26:56 And its just very satisfying to know
  • 27:00 that even the darkest most difficult time
  • 27:03 in one of the most darkest times in human history
  • 27:05 could not hold down what God wants to raise up.
  • 27:09 Amen!
  • 27:10 And we get to be part of that.
  • 27:11 That's awesome.
  • 27:13 Its a beautiful thing to see.
  • 27:15 And we like to always remind you
  • 27:17 at the end of each program.
  • 27:18 Sha'a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:20 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
