  • 00:05 Yeshua is revealed in the Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,8);
  • 00:08 Join us as we listen for the shofar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,10);
  • 00:10 announcing His arrival.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,12);
  • 00:12 Learn from the past and look into the future
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,14);
  • 00:15 as we study the Fall Feasts.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,16);
  • 00:17 Prepare for the coming King, the Lion of Judah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,19);
  • 00:20 and His millennial Kingdom.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,25);
  • 00:26 Shalom and Welcome to our program.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,27);
  • 00:27 I'm Myles Weiss.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,28);
  • 00:28 And I'm Katharine Weiss
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,29);
  • 00:30 And we're bringing you a program
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,31);
  • 00:31 on the Fall Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,33);
  • 00:34 They're not of the Jews or of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,36);
  • 00:36 They're of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,37);
  • 00:37 That's really important.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,38);
  • 00:39 He's kept the first ones, The first four,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,41);
  • 00:41 The Spring Feasts.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,42);
  • 00:43 And He will keep the Fall Feasts
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,45);
  • 00:46 to the " moed ", to the "appointed time".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,48);
  • 00:48 The Fall Feasts are the ones that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,49);
  • 00:50 finish the cycle of the 7 Feasts of the LORD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,52);
  • 00:52 which take place in three time periods.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,54);
  • 00:55 The first time period, in the Spring -
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,56);
  • 00:57 Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,59);
  • 00:59 around the Passover season.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,60);
  • 01:01 50 days later - S havuot or Pentecost
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,63);
  • 01:04 is when the Church was birthed.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,65);
  • 01:05 So those have been kept by Messiah Himself.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,67);
  • 01:08 And now we're looking forward to the Fall Feast:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,76);
  • 01:17 Now taken together
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,78);
  • 01:18 they're the seasons of Tabernacles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,80);
  • 01:21 But here's the wonderful thing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,82);
  • 01:22 We're now looking towards the next one
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,83);
  • 01:24 which is "The Sound of the Trumpets"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,85);
  • 01:26 So keep your ears open because Messiah is coming.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,89);
  • 01:29 Let's go to Israel and pickup in a Sukkah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,92);
  • 01:32 the traditional tent in which the Feast of Tabernacles is held.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,98);
  • 01:38 Myles-Well our Sukkah is looking good
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,100);
  • 01:41 it's coming along.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,101);
  • 01:42 Katharine - It's beautiful!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,103);
  • 01:43 Myles - and if you can put that here
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,105);
  • 01:45 I'm going to hang this up.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,106);
  • 01:47 We'll keep working on it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,107);
  • 01:48 Katharine - I'll be back.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,108);
  • 01:49 Myles - Alright.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,113);
  • 01:54 As you know there are 3 major feast periods.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,116);
  • 01:57 The Fall Feasts represent something
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,119);
  • 02:00 that has not fully taken place in the earth yet.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,122);
  • 02:02 If God keeps to His pattern,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,124);
  • 02:04 which we expect Him to do,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,125);
  • 02:06 then just as Yeshua was sacrificed
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,128);
  • 02:09 on Passover - the blood of the Lamb,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,130);
  • 02:11 the Church was birthed at Pentecost - Shavuot .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,134);
  • 02:14 We're in this long, hot summer
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,136);
  • 02:16 leading up to the Fall Feasts
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,138);
  • 02:18 when God will fulfill the Fall Feasts picture
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,141);
  • 02:21 by coming with the sound of a trumpet.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,144);
  • 02:24 The shofar represents this first Fall Feast.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,148);
  • 02:29 Rosh Hashanah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,150);
  • 02:30 You've heard it called Rosh Hashanah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,152);
  • 02:32 But really its biblical name from Leviticus 23:24
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,155);
  • 02:36 is " Yom Teruah "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,157);
  • 02:38 "The Day of Blowing". Why?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,159);
  • 02:40 Because it's a time when
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,161);
  • 02:42 God is pouring out of His Spirit
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,164);
  • 02:44 and we're hearing the " Ruach HaKodesh "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,166);
  • 02:46 We seeing the blowing of the wind,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,167);
  • 02:47 and we hear the sound of shofar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,169);
  • 02:50 as God prepares His return.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,172);
  • 02:53 Now for the Jewish people, we remember
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,176);
  • 02:56 that Leviticus 23:24 says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,183);
  • 03:04 "convocation"-What is that word?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,185);
  • 03:06 Holy convocation is a " Mikrah ".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,187);
  • 03:08 It's a "Moed", an "Appointed time".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,189);
  • 03:10 But more importantly its a rehearsal.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,192);
  • 03:12 Not only are we to meet with the LORD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,194);
  • 03:15 on the holiday, on this Feast Day,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,197);
  • 03:17 But it's a rehearsal of what God wants to do in the entire earth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,201);
  • 03:22 " Rosh Hashanah " - " Yom Teruah "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,203);
  • 03:24 is full of the blowing of the Shofar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,206);
  • 03:26 and the announcing of the appointment we have with God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,210);
  • 03:30 It's a time of repentance.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,211);
  • 03:32 It's a time of remembrance.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,213);
  • 03:33 In fact,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,214);
  • 03:34 Genesis 22 - the binding of Isaac
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,217);
  • 03:37 the " Akedah "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,218);
  • 03:39 is the signature verse and the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,221);
  • 03:41 signature passage that is spoken of
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,223);
  • 03:43 during this season.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,224);
  • 03:45 On this holiday, on this Feast Day
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,226);
  • 03:46 we speak about the binding of Isaac.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,228);
  • 03:48 Why? Because Isaac pictures the Promised Son to come.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,231);
  • 03:52 Remember Abraham was past child bearing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,234);
  • 03:54 He and his wife could not have children
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,236);
  • 03:56 and yet God brought this supernatural, promised son,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,240);
  • 04:00 a picture of the Promised Son to come,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,243);
  • 04:04 Yeshua HaMashiach , Jesus known as
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,246);
  • 04:07 "The Christ" in Greek and in English,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,249);
  • 04:09 but Hebrew "HaMashiach", "The Anointed One".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,252);
  • 04:12 " Yeshua " means "Salvation".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,254);
  • 04:14 So when this King came born as a baby
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,257);
  • 04:17 his Mom, Mariam , not Mary, called him Yeshua , not Jesus.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,261);
  • 04:21 She didn't speak English.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,262);
  • 04:23 She didn't speak the language of our day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,264);
  • 04:24 She called him " Yeshua "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,265);
  • 04:26 because it means "Salvation".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,267);
  • 04:27 And the Scripture tells us that she said,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,270);
  • 04:30 "Salvation is come".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,272);
  • 04:32 And when he was presented in the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,274);
  • 04:35 Simeon said,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,275);
  • 04:35 "Behold, the Salvation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,276);
  • 04:37 that is coming to Israel."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,278);
  • 04:38 This is a reminder.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,279);
  • 04:40 This holiday, this Feast Day,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,281);
  • 04:41 Rosh Hashanah, Yom Teruah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,283);
  • 04:43 the "Day of Blowing"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,284);
  • 04:44 is a reminder of His mercy.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,286);
  • 04:46 And we're to remind God of His mercy.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,289);
  • 04:49 In fact, this entire period begins in the month of Elul,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,292);
  • 04:52 way back in the summer.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,293);
  • 04:54 It begins a 40 day period leading up to Yom Kippur .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,296);
  • 04:56 And "Elul", the month of Elul
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,298);
  • 04:58 is an acronym " Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,301);
  • 05:02 "I am my Beloved's and my Beloved is mine"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,304);
  • 05:04 from the Song of Solomon.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,305);
  • 05:06 This is about coming back to the LORD
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,308);
  • 05:09 in mercy and in repentance.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,310);
  • 05:11 It's a love picture.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,313);
  • 05:13 It's a picture of union with God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,315);
  • 05:16 Rosh Hashanah - Yom Teruah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,317);
  • 05:18 We have wonderful cultural items we take care of.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,320);
  • 05:21 Even the celebration of the crowning of the King.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,323);
  • 05:24 It's supposedly the birthday of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,326);
  • 05:26 The coronation day of the King.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,328);
  • 05:28 A time of " Teshuvah " a "returning and repenting".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,331);
  • 05:31 It's a " Yom haDin ", a "day of judgment".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,334);
  • 05:34 One of the practices " Tashlik "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,336);
  • 05:36 where we "cast" our bread upon the waters,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,338);
  • 05:39 we cast our sin, because Micah 7:19 says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,347);
  • 05:48 This is the season of coming to the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,350);
  • 05:51 A season of introspection of looking to the LORD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,354);
  • 05:54 of asking him for our names to be written
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,356);
  • 05:57 in the Lamb's Book of Life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,358);
  • 05:58 Now I have good news for you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,359);
  • 06:00 If you're a believer in Yeshua your name
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,361);
  • 06:02 is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,363);
  • 06:04 We don't have to worry year from year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,365);
  • 06:06 whether we will make it into that book.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,367);
  • 06:08 When we accepted Yeshua we accepted Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,370);
  • 06:10 But this also looks forward to the coming of the King.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,374);
  • 06:14 And that's the prophetic picture
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,376);
  • 06:16 that " Yom Teruah " has for us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,379);
  • 06:19 which is not only a rehearsal
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,380);
  • 06:21 but a looking forward to the King.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,383);
  • 06:23 We will hear the sound of the shofar from heaven and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,385);
  • 06:26 the King will go up with a shout.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,388);
  • 06:28 We see that in I Corinthians.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,390);
  • 06:30 We see it in Psalm 98.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,392);
  • 06:32 And we will see it soon, perhaps in our lifetime.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,401);

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,432);
  • 07:13 There are 7 Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,434);
  • 07:14 Remember they are not the Feasts of the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,436);
  • 07:17 They're the Feasts of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,438);
  • 07:18 They belong to Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,439);
  • 07:20 One of them, the 6th, Yom Kippur
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,442);
  • 07:22 is a day of fasting.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,443);
  • 07:24 It's a solemn day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,445);
  • 07:25 It's the most holy day of the year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,447);
  • 07:27 It's the day in which in the old country,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,449);
  • 07:29 in New York City when I was a child
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,451);
  • 07:31 we would go to Hebrew School, we would fast.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,453);
  • 07:33 My friends and I would compete with each other
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,456);
  • 07:37 to see how long during the day
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,458);
  • 07:39 we could go before we would give in
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,460);
  • 07:41 and eat that forbidden jelly bean or some kind of treat.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,465);
  • 07:46 But for the Jewish people as a whole it is the most Holy Day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,469);
  • 07:50 The entire nation of Israel was shut down.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,472);
  • 07:52 And in place where there's a Jewish contingent
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,475);
  • 07:55 in any city, in any part of the world
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,477);
  • 07:57 it is the quietest day,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,478);
  • 07:59 it is the day of fasting.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,480);
  • 08:00 Its the day when if the books are opened and looked at,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,484);
  • 08:04 the Book of Life is looked at
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,485);
  • 08:06 on Rosh Hashanah on Yom Teruah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,487);
  • 08:08 the book is closed, it's settled,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,489);
  • 08:09 its sealed on Yom Kippur .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,491);
  • 08:11 The word "Kippur" comes from " Kaphar " meaning "to cover".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,495);
  • 08:16 And so our sins as a people would be covered
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,498);
  • 08:19 by the holiest man, the High Priest, going into
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,501);
  • 08:21 the holiest place within the Tabernacle or the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,503);
  • 08:24 and offering a sacrifice of blood for the people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,507);
  • 08:28 But I have good news for you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,510);
  • 08:30 If you're a follower of Yeshua ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,511);
  • 08:32 if you believe that He is Mashiach
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,513);
  • 08:34 then your sins are not only covered from year to year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,516);
  • 08:37 but they are taken away.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,518);
  • 08:39 And that's why in John 1
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,521);
  • 08:41 We see the words,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,524);
  • 08:44 "Behold! The Lamb of God"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,526);
  • 08:46 "who takes away the sin of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,528);
  • 08:49 This covering, this taking away, this redeeming
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,533);
  • 08:53 can only take place by the perfect sacrifice,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,536);
  • 08:57 the One with perfect blood who came from God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,540);
  • 09:01 The oldest book in the Bible, the book of Job.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,543);
  • 09:04 In that book in chapter 9
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,546);
  • 09:06 Job asked the question,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,548);
  • 09:08 I am here and God is here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,549);
  • 09:10 How can I get connected to Him?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,551);
  • 09:11 I'm paraphrasing, but he says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,553);
  • 09:13 I'm looking for a daysman.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,554);
  • 09:15 I'm looking for a mediator.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,556);
  • 09:16 Is there anyone who can
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,557);
  • 09:18 connect me with this Holy God?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,559);
  • 09:20 Because I am am just a man.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,561);
  • 09:22 He was looking for a mediator,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,563);
  • 09:23 a daysman, one who could
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,564);
  • 09:25 stand between himself
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,566);
  • 09:27 and the most Holy God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,568);
  • 09:29 That is the work that Yeshua did
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,570);
  • 09:31 when he came to become
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,572);
  • 09:33 our " kafar ", our "covering".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,574);
  • 09:34 The One who takes away the sin of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,576);
  • 09:37 Imagine the Fall Feasts speaking of the harvest time,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,580);
  • 09:40 the reaping of the grapes,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,582);
  • 09:42 the season of looking for that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,585);
  • 09:46 which has been produced to be
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,587);
  • 09:48 judged as to whether it is worthy or not worthy.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,590);
  • 09:50 If we are found in Him, then we are found worthy
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,593);
  • 09:54 only because of His pure blood,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,596);
  • 09:56 because of His sacrifice.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,598);
  • 09:58 Now remember these 40 days that leads up to this Yom Kippur
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,602);
  • 10:03 begins in this month of Elul , on Elul day one.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,606);
  • 10:07 40 days actually mirror the 40 days that the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,610);
  • 10:10 12 spies were in the land,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,612);
  • 10:13 searching out the land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,614);
  • 10:15 And only 2 came back with the good report.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,617);
  • 10:17 It mirrors the 40 days that Moses
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,619);
  • 10:19 went up on to the mountain top.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,621);
  • 10:21 In fact, Moses on the mountain top,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,623);
  • 10:23 when he saw the sin that Israel was in
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,625);
  • 10:25 he offered to be a substitute.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,627);
  • 10:27 He said, blot my name out of the Book of Life,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,630);
  • 10:30 blot my name out and forgive the people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,632);
  • 10:33 Because he did say in Deuteronomy 18
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,635);
  • 10:36 That we are to be looking for one that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,637);
  • 10:38 God would raise up like Himself.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,639);
  • 10:40 God would raise up someone like Moses
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,642);
  • 10:42 from among the people of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,644);
  • 10:44 Who fulfills that?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,645);
  • 10:46 Only Yeshua, only Jesus
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,647);
  • 10:48 fulfills that identity
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,650);
  • 10:51 of the One who could be
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,652);
  • 10:52 that much like Moses.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,653);
  • 10:54 And in fact, became our substitute.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,656);
  • 10:56 One of the most beautiful pictures of Messiah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,658);
  • 10:58 throughout the Old Testament
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,659);
  • 11:00 is the patriarch Joseph.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,661);
  • 11:02 And there's an amazing story.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,663);
  • 11:03 Part of the story of Joseph is that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,665);
  • 11:05 his people did not recognize him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,667);
  • 11:07 His brothers did not recognize him
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,669);
  • 11:10 as the one who would save them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,671);
  • 11:12 from the famine, from the difficulty.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,673);
  • 11:14 As a picture of Yeshua
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,675);
  • 11:16 you could say that the first time
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,677);
  • 11:18 that Joseph was reunited with his brothers
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,679);
  • 11:19 they did not recognize him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,680);
  • 11:21 When Yeshua came the first time
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,682);
  • 11:22 My people did not recognize Him as Mashiach .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,685);
  • 11:25 We missed the day of our "appointment" with Him, our " moed ".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,689);
  • 11:30 In Joseph's story when Judah, his brother,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,694);
  • 11:34 when Judah repented, then he recognized
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,697);
  • 11:37 this one who looked like an Egyptian
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,699);
  • 11:40 was one of the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,702);
  • 11:42 In fact, his own brother.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,703);
  • 11:44 In that way it's a picture of Messiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,706);
  • 11:46 It's a picture of Yeshua.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,708);
  • 11:48 There is a day coming when Judah repents,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,710);
  • 11:51 when my Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,712);
  • 11:52 when we repent,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,713);
  • 11:53 when we say we need you God,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,714);
  • 11:55 Baruch Haba B'Shem Adonai
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,716);
  • 11:56 Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,718);
  • 11:59 When we say that we will recognize Him
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,722);
  • 12:02 and we will be with Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,724);
  • 12:04 The day is coming when all of Israel shall all be saved.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,737);
  • 12:18 Our offer on this program,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,739);
  • 12:19 Zola Levitt's most requested teaching,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,741);
  • 12:22 "The Seven Feasts of Israel"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,744);
  • 12:24 The book and the DVD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,746);
  • 12:27 A complete explanation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,748);
  • 12:28 of the Holy Days God gave Moses on Mount Sinai.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,751);
  • 12:32 And how each was fulfilled by our LORD in...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,763);
  • 12:44 These celebrations comprise one of the most
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,766);
  • 12:46 fascinating studies of the biblical types and shadows.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,769);
  • 12:49 Ask for the book or the DVD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,771);
  • 12:52 "The Seven Feasts of Israel"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,776);
  • 12:57 Myles the Sukkah looks so amazing!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,778);
  • 12:59 I know, this is coming out really great.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,780);
  • 13:01 You know I love the settling in
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,783);
  • 13:03 for a 7 day time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,784);
  • 13:05 This is the only Feast that takes place
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,787);
  • 13:08 for an entire 7 days of living inside this booth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,790);
  • 13:11 A picture of the impermanence of life
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,794);
  • 13:14 and the tabernacling that God wants to do with us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,796);
  • 13:17 And that we're just passing through this life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,799);
  • 13:19 There was to be openness because we remember
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,802);
  • 13:22 that the LORD is over us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,804);
  • 13:24 And the stars are watching
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,805);
  • 13:26 even as they watched over the people of Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,807);
  • 13:28 when they went through the wilderness.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,809);
  • 13:30 You know, "Trumpets" is the time of repentance.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,813);
  • 13:33 The "Day of Atonement" is a time of redemption.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,816);
  • 13:36 And "Tabernacles" is the time of rejoicing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,819);
  • 13:40 So this is the Feast, the 7th Feast,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,821);
  • 13:42 the completed Feast of rejoicing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,824);
  • 13:45 In fact, it was at this Feast that we read
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,827);
  • 13:47 that Yeshua came during the libation ceremony -
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,830);
  • 13:50 the pouring out of the water.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,831);
  • 13:52 That's when he said, if anyone thirst come to me.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,834);
  • 13:54 It was on the 8th.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,835);
  • 13:56 It was on the final day, the day after today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,837);
  • 13:58 It's called " Simchat Torah ", "The Joy of the Word",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,840);
  • 14:01 The thanking God for the Bible that takes place.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,843);
  • 14:04 You know, Yeshua came as a prophet.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,846);
  • 14:06 The first time he came to the earth as a prophet.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,848);
  • 14:09 He resurrected as a Priest and he ever lives to make
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,851);
  • 14:11 intercession for you and me before the Father in heaven.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,855);
  • 14:15 But He's returning as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,859);
  • 14:19 He's returning as the "King of Kings" " Melech Ha-M'lachim "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,863);
  • 14:24 This represents the coming together
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,866);
  • 14:26 of the Jews and the Gentiles to worship the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,869);
  • 14:29 Every time the LORD always brings
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,871);
  • 14:31 the Jews and the Gentiles together.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,872);
  • 14:33 Even in these species, even in this " Lulav "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,875);
  • 14:36 that it talks about this wild olive branch that is brought in
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,879);
  • 14:40 representing that the LORD foresaw and foreknew
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,883);
  • 14:44 that the Jews and the Gentiles would be one in the Sukkah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,887);
  • 14:47 That's great.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,888);
  • 14:48 Even going back as far as the time of Nehemiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,890);
  • 14:50 Remember that was the time of restoration.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,892);
  • 14:52 Whenever God restores his intention is to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,894);
  • 14:54 bring Jews and Gentiles together.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,896);
  • 14:56 Listen to this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,897);
  • 14:57 This is Nehemiah Chapter 8, verse 15.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,909);
  • 15:10 To make Sukkot , the plural.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,913);
  • 15:14 Think about this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,915);
  • 15:15 This is a holiday that will be celebrated
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,917);
  • 15:18 when the King returns.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,919);
  • 15:19 When there is a 1,000 year reign of
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,921);
  • 15:22 Yeshua HaMashiach
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,922);
  • 15:23 from a Jewish Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,924);
  • 15:25 The nations will come up to worship
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,926);
  • 15:27 along side the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,928);
  • 15:29 This Lulav is waved east and west, north and south.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,932);
  • 15:32 It's a picture of the authority and the righteousness of God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,935);
  • 15:36 The "Etrog" is a picture
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,937);
  • 15:38 of the beauty of Messiah, the beauty of Mashiach.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,940);
  • 15:41 The day is coming when the nations will come up
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,944);
  • 15:44 to celebrate this Festival, this Feast, this Sukkot ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,948);
  • 15:49 Tabernacles with the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,950);
  • 15:51 In Fact, in Zechariah 14 it says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,953);
  • 15:53 That if the nations do not go up to celebrate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,956);
  • 15:56 they will have no rain.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,958);
  • 15:58 So it's very important that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,960);
  • 16:00 this holiday which is a time of thanksgiving,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,961);
  • 16:02 a time of rejoicing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,963);
  • 16:03 In fact, I believe the American Thanksgiving
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,965);
  • 16:05 is patterned upon Sukkot .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,968);
  • 16:08 It's interesting that the nations -
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,969);
  • 16:10 God says in Deuteronomy 32:8
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,972);
  • 16:13 that He numbered the nations according to the sons of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,976);
  • 16:17 And in Exodus 1:5 the Scripture tells us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,979);
  • 16:19 That there were 70 souls
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,981);
  • 16:21 that came out of Egypt with Jacob - with Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,984);
  • 16:25 Remember - Israel is Jacob
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,987);
  • 16:27 and Jacob is Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,988);
  • 16:29 There were 70 souls.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,989);
  • 16:30 And so at the time of the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,991);
  • 16:32 there were 70 bulls sacrificed,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,994);
  • 16:34 one for each of the nations.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,995);
  • 16:36 It's so ironic that the nations would
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,998);
  • 16:38 come and destroy the Temple,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1000);
  • 16:41 the very place that would
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1002);
  • 16:42 bring redemption to them,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1003);
  • 16:43 and stand against the Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1005);
  • 16:45 the very people through whom
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1006);
  • 16:47 redemption is coming to the nations.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1009);
  • 16:49 It's ironic, it's tragic,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1011);
  • 16:51 but the day is coming
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1012);
  • 16:53 before that millennial resting with the LORD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1015);
  • 16:56 "tabernacling with God".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1017);
  • 16:58 There is a day coming when God will judge
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1020);
  • 17:00 the nations according to how they treat Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1023);
  • 17:04 In Matthew 25 it says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1026);
  • 17:06 It says that He will judge the nations as sheep and goats
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1028);
  • 17:09 and separate them according the way that they treat His people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1034);
  • 17:15 So that's why we pray for America.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1036);
  • 17:17 That's why we pray for the nations surrounding Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1040);
  • 17:20 to get the picture that God is coming back
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1043);
  • 17:24 and He's always going to bring Israel to Himself.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1067);
  • 17:47Sha'a'lu shalom Yerushalayim
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1070);
  • 17:51Sha'a'lu sha'a'lu shalom

  • 17:55 ♪ In the Holy City of Jerusalem ♪
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1081);
  • 18:02 ♪ We will pray for peace, Sha'a'lu shalom . ♪♪
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1095);
  • 18:15 You know it's often been said
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1096);
  • 18:17 that there's a bucket list that we all have,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1098);
  • 18:19 things that we want to do
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1100);
  • 18:20 before we go and we meet our Maker.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1102);
  • 18:22 And I really believe that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1103);
  • 18:24 each Christian should make
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1104);
  • 18:25 a pilgrimage to the Holy Land
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1106);
  • 18:27 and see the Land where
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1108);
  • 18:28 Yeshua was born,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1109);
  • 18:30 where He walked and did his ministry
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1111);
  • 18:31 and where He will return.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1112);
  • 18:33 And it will add to your journey in the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1116);
  • 18:36 And you will add your faith to the people of the Book.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1120);
  • 18:40 That's really true.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1121);
  • 18:41 It's such a blessing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1122);
  • 18:42 for you to come to Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1123);
  • 18:44 We would love to host you there.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1125);
  • 18:45 When the Israelis see
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1126);
  • 18:47 Christians come these days
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1127);
  • 18:48 they celebrate in their hearts.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1129);
  • 18:49 It's so uplifting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1130);
  • 18:51 because they know that they're not alone.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1132);
  • 18:52 So we would love to be that bridge
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1134);
  • 18:54 and bring you to Israel with us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1135);
  • 18:56 You will never be the same.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1137);
  • 18:58 The Feast period, the Fall Feasts especially
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1140);
  • 19:00 have this sense of culmination
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1142);
  • 19:03 and it's amazing, the end of the Feasts the Tabernacles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1146);
  • 19:06 actually is the one that speaks most clearly about the nations
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1150);
  • 19:10 being drawn in to the commonwealth of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1152);
  • 19:13 And sometimes when we are there in Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1154);
  • 19:15 during the Feast of Tabernacles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1157);
  • 19:17 you actually see the nations dressed in white
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1159);
  • 19:19 flooding into Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1160);
  • 19:21 It's the picture of the future.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1162);
  • 19:23 Because Zechariah tells us in Zechariah 14
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1164);
  • 19:25 That all the nations will come up
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1167);
  • 19:27 and worship the LORD in the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1169);
  • 19:29 But they want the rain
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1170);
  • 19:31 and they want the blessing of the LORD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1172);
  • 19:32 And so many nations are receiving this prophetic instruction to go
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1177);
  • 19:37 and to do the dress rehearsal, the " mikrah ".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1180);
  • 19:41 that God has intended for us to do.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1183);
  • 19:43 It's really a beautiful picture of the future
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1184);
  • 19:45 that we have together as God knits together
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1187);
  • 19:48 Jew and Gentile to worship Him according
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1189);
  • 19:50 to His calendar and His plan.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1192);
  • 19:52 Well, we have a wonderful interview
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1194);
  • 19:54 with our dear friend, Ron Cantor.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1196);
  • 19:56 He's one of our favorite spiritual leaders in Tel Aviv.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1199);
  • 19:59 He's with us in the Sukkah, in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1201);
  • 20:02 Let's go to that interview right now.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1205);
  • 20:06 So Ron, growing up in New York, the Old Country,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1208);
  • 20:08 We called it " Rosh Hashanah "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1210);
  • 20:10 but in the Bible it's " Yom Teruah ".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1211);
  • 20:12 What's the deal with 2 different names?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1213);
  • 20:14 Well, its interesting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1214);
  • 20:15 because if you look in the Bible
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1216);
  • 20:16 in Leviticus 23 it says
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1218);
  • 20:18 on the 1st day of the 7th month
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1219);
  • 20:20 you are to do this
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1221);
  • 20:21 commemoration holiday and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1222);
  • 20:23 blow the shofars
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1224);
  • 20:24 and that's all it says.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1225);
  • 20:26 And not to work that day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1228);
  • 20:28 It's very unclear about
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1229);
  • 20:29 what its about.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1230);
  • 20:31 And so we have to ask ourselves,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1233);
  • 20:33 what is God trying to say then?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1234);
  • 20:34 The Rabbis, they did ask themselves that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1236);
  • 20:36 And I think they said, we don't know what it means.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1238);
  • 20:39 So let's...ummm...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1240);
  • 20:41 Let's make it a New Year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1242);
  • 20:42 cause it has to have meaning to it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1244);
  • 20:44 And so for a long time now
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1245);
  • 20:46 we've called it "The New Year" " Rosh Hashana "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1247);
  • 20:48 But really biblically it's a day of memorial
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1250);
  • 20:50 where we blast the shofars.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1252);
  • 20:52 Now as New Testament believers those Jewish people who have found
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1256);
  • 20:56 Yeshua , the Jewish Messiah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1257);
  • 20:58 we could see that its a memorial
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1260);
  • 21:00 that probably points forward
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1262);
  • 21:02 to the great trumpet blast
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1264);
  • 21:04 when Yeshua will appear in the clouds.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1266);
  • 21:06 He's going to come back to Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1268);
  • 21:08 and set up His Kingdom.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1269);
  • 21:10 So in light of the New Covenant,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1271);
  • 21:11 " Yom Teruah " the "Day of the blasting of Shofars"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1273);
  • 21:14 in our congregation here in Tel Aviv,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1275);
  • 21:16 or about 30 minutes away in Tel Aviv,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1278);
  • 21:18 we blast the shofars on Yom Teruah and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1281);
  • 21:22 we look forward to the coming of Yeshua .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1284);
  • 21:24 Hallelujah, that's the good word.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1285);
  • 21:26 So what about Yom Kippur ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1287);
  • 21:27 the Day of Atonement?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1288);
  • 21:29 It's the holiest day of the year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1290);
  • 21:30 and the whole country is getting quiet.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1291);
  • 21:32 Tell us about that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1292);
  • 21:33 Sure- well, the whole country shuts down.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1294);
  • 21:34 There's not a car on the road,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1295);
  • 21:36 kids literally ride their bikes on the highways.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1297);
  • 21:38 It's a phenomenon to see.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1299);
  • 21:40 But if we go back 2,000 years ago
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1301);
  • 21:42 something very interesting happened.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1303);
  • 21:44 The Talmud, the Jewish Holy Book
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1307);
  • 21:47 says that the 40 years prior to the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1309);
  • 21:49 destruction of the Temple which was in 70 A.D.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1311);
  • 21:52 that God rejected the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1313);
  • 21:54 Yom Kippur sacrifices every year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1315);
  • 21:56 Amazing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1316);
  • 21:57 So for 40 years the Jewish people were not forgiven
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1319);
  • 21:59 And there were 4 different signs.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1321);
  • 22:01 We don't have time to go into each sign but
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1323);
  • 22:03 these signs would tell them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1324);
  • 22:05 whether or not God forgave the people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1326);
  • 22:07 And those 40 years God did not.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1329);
  • 22:09 Now, you have to ask yourself
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1331);
  • 22:11 What happened 40 years before 70 AD?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1334);
  • 22:14 Yeshua died as the ultimate,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1337);
  • 22:17 once for all sin and for all time sacrifice.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1340);
  • 22:21 He died, gave His life as the ultimate Yom Kippur sacrifice.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1344);
  • 22:24 Incredible.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1345);
  • 22:26 So that's why we're praying
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1347);
  • 22:28 that as people are going to synagogue,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1349);
  • 22:30 going to Yeshua,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1350);
  • 22:31 that they will have a personal
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1352);
  • 22:32 encounter with Mashiach on this most holy day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1354);
  • 22:35 You know, growing up in New York we
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1356);
  • 22:36 built a communal Sukkah at the synagogue and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1359);
  • 22:39 we would spend some time there.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1361);
  • 22:41 What about Sukkot here in the Land?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1363);
  • 22:44 I know it's the place -
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1364);
  • 22:45 It's the holiday that the Gentiles are invited to.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1366);
  • 22:47 Right.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1368);
  • 22:48 Well, Sukkot in Israel, it's fun, it's exciting.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1371);
  • 22:52 People eat their meal, some more orthodox, sleep in the Sukkot .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1376);
  • 22:56 But God is very much into signs.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1378);
  • 22:59 And the actual building of a Sukkah , it's a,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1381);
  • 23:02 in Hebrew we would say it's a " mitzvah" ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1384);
  • 23:04 it's a "good deed".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1385);
  • 23:05 But it has prophetic significance.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1387);
  • 23:07 It's saying, the God of Israel is alive.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1389);
  • 23:09 He actually is the One who brought us up out of Egypt,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1391);
  • 23:11 took care of us in the wilderness
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1393);
  • 23:13 and brought us into our own country.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1395);
  • 23:15 I remember when I was a young father
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1397);
  • 23:18 my daughter Sharon was just a couple years old
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1399);
  • 23:20 and I was building the Sukkah for her,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1402);
  • 23:22 to say, Sharon God is alive, He's rescued us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1406);
  • 23:26 And I remember that my neighbors,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1408);
  • 23:28 this is in Maryland,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1409);
  • 23:30 they were Palestinian.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1411);
  • 23:31 Now we got along okay.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1412);
  • 23:33 But he was sitting on his porch
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1414);
  • 23:35 smoking a hookah with his Palestinian friend.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1417);
  • 23:38 As a Jew, a Jewish believer in Jesus,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1420);
  • 23:40 I'm building the Sukkah and I realize I am
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1423);
  • 23:44 not violently, not angrily,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1425);
  • 23:46 but I'm testifying to them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1427);
  • 23:47 that the God of Israel is alive.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1429);
  • 23:49 That's great.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1430);
  • 23:50 The history of the Jewish people in the Land is real.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1433);
  • 23:54 And always contested
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1436);
  • 23:56 but always having these signs to point to the reality.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1439);
  • 23:59 I'd say that the headlines
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1441);
  • 24:01 are catching up to the Bible.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1442);
  • 24:03 Absolutely.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1443);
  • 24:03 Thank you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1446);
  • 24:06 You know the Feasts of the LORD are not
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1447);
  • 24:08 just an Old Testament fact.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1449);
  • 24:09 They are present in our lives today
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1451);
  • 24:12 and they are speaking to people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1453);
  • 24:13 Just like Ron was saying by
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1455);
  • 24:15 him building a Sukkah he was testifying that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1457);
  • 24:18 not only did God bring them out of Egypt,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1459);
  • 24:20 but they are still remembering the deliverance
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1462);
  • 24:22 and that they're passing through this earth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1464);
  • 24:25 We're not, to like, put all of our eggs in one basket, so to say.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1470);
  • 24:30 Right, our faith in this world because our faith is in Him
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1473);
  • 24:33 and in the world to come as well.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1475);
  • 24:35 " Olam Hazeh : "this world"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1477);
  • 24:37 " Olam Ha-Ba ": "the world to come"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1479);
  • 24:39 And this Sukkah really points to the temporal nature of our life here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1483);
  • 24:43 Some people don't understand that there's a spiritual calendar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1486);
  • 24:46 that begins with Passover
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1487);
  • 24:48 but a civil calendar that begins with Rosh Hashanah ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1490);
  • 24:50 the head of the year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1492);
  • 24:52 And one of the beautiful things about Rosh Hashanah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1494);
  • 24:54 is the foods that we eat and the way
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1496);
  • 24:57 we celebrate hope for the next year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1499);
  • 24:59 And so let's go to Katharine's interview with Roni in Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1501);
  • 25:02 about the cultural aspects of Rosh Hashanah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1506);
  • 25:07 Roni thank you for coming and telling us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1508);
  • 25:09 about the holiday foods that we eat.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1511);
  • 25:11 Now we're at Rosh Hashanah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1512);
  • 25:13 This is the head of the year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1514);
  • 25:15 This is the beginning
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1516);
  • 25:16 of the Jewish Calendar.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1518);
  • 25:18 Tell me a little bit
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1519);
  • 25:19 why the Jewish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1521);
  • 25:21 have the honey.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1522);
  • 25:23 Well, because this is the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1523);
  • 25:24 beginning of the year,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1525);
  • 25:25 one of the things we want to wish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1526);
  • 25:27 is a happy sweet year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1528);
  • 25:29 And that is why we have
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1530);
  • 25:30 both the apples and the honey.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1531);
  • 25:31 They're are assigned for sweetness
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1532);
  • 25:33 obviously because they are sweet.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1534);
  • 25:34 And that is why we always say,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1535);
  • 25:36 [ Speaking Hebrew ]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1537);
  • 25:38 That the year would be sweet
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1539);
  • 25:39 like apples and honey.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1540);
  • 25:41 Wonderful!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1541);
  • 25:42 Well I wish you
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1543);
  • 25:43 a happy New Year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1545);
  • 25:45 Happy New Year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1552);
  • 25:52 It's such a joy to be with Roni
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1554);
  • 25:54 and to learn the foods.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1555);
  • 25:56 Well, we know the foods.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1557);
  • 25:57 But to celebrate the sweetness of the New Year
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1559);
  • 26:00 and to remember to pray for our loved ones
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1561);
  • 26:02 that their names would be written in the Book of Life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1564);
  • 26:04 Really, it's very true.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1565);
  • 26:06 Sometimes it can be a be a little confusing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1567);
  • 26:07 the different names for the holidays.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1568);
  • 26:09 So just by the way of review,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1570);
  • 26:10 " Rosh Hashanah ", the "Head of the Year"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1572);
  • 26:12 is " Yom Teruah ", the "Day of Blowing".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1574);
  • 26:14 That's the Shofar holiday.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1576);
  • 26:16 " Yom Kippur " is the "Day of Atonement"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1577);
  • 26:18 That's the day of Judgment,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1579);
  • 26:20 but the day that God's mercy will be shown
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1581);
  • 26:22 because the judgment was taken by Yeshua Ha Mashiach .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1584);
  • 26:25 And "Tabernacles" is the same word as "Booths" or " Sukkot "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1588);
  • 26:28 " Sukkot " is the plural
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1590);
  • 26:31 " Sukkah " is the booth that we were in,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1592);
  • 26:33 Katharine and I and with Ron.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1594);
  • 26:35 So there are different names for the holidays
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1596);
  • 26:37 but taken together they express the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1598);
  • 26:39 next phase in the history of the planet
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1601);
  • 26:41 which is that we are looking up
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1604);
  • 26:44 because Yeshua is coming soon.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1606);
  • 26:47 I love seeing that God has
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1609);
  • 26:49 a multi-level plan in this earth
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1613);
  • 26:53 and we are part of it
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1614);
  • 26:55 if we just simply call on His Name.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1616);
  • 26:57 And we just invite you to do that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1618);
  • 26:59 even today if the Lord is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1620);
  • 27:01 drawing you by His love
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1622);
  • 27:02 would you just make that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1623);
  • 27:04 fresh surrender to Him today?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1625);
  • 27:06 The greatest thing you'll ever do.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1627);
  • 27:08 The greatest adventure you'll ever embark upon
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1630);
  • 27:10 to walk with Yeshua here
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1631);
  • 27:12 and when we see Him face to face.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1634);
  • 27:14 So with that we always want to remind you,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1636);
  • 27:16 it says in Psalm 122:6
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1638);
  • 27:19 Sha'a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1641);
  • 27:21 Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1645);
  • 27:25 Our monthly newsletter the "Levitt Letter" is free
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1648);
