Caption transcript for “Days of Remembrance: Hanukkah”

    javascript: void video_jump(0,5);
  • 00:05 One again the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,7);
  • 00:08 proves He is the watchman.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,10);
  • 00:10 When it looked like the light was going out forever
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,13);
  • 00:13 the Light of the world preserved his people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,16);
  • 00:16 and re-dedicated the Holy Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,18);
  • 00:19 Celebrate Hanukkah , The Festival of Light
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,27);
  • 00:28 Shalom, Welcome to our program.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,28);
  • 00:29 I'm Myles Weiss
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,29);
  • 00:30 and I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,31);
  • 00:31 And our program today is Hanukkah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,33);
  • 00:33 Hanukkah is not as substitute for Christmas
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,35);
  • 00:35 because Hanukkah came first.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,36);
  • 00:37 That's right, I like to joke with my Pastor friends
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,39);
  • 00:39 that Hanukkah saved Christmas because
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,41);
  • 00:41 if God had not preserved the Jewish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,43);
  • 00:43 when the Temple was desecrated and He rededicated it
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,46);
  • 00:46 there would be no Christmas.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,47);
  • 00:48 There wouldn't have been the birth of Yeshua
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,49);
  • 00:50 because the Jews would have been wiped out.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,51);
  • 00:51 Salvation is of the Jews and Yeshua Jesus is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,54);
  • 00:55 a Jewish Messiah and Savior of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,57);
  • 00:57 We love that Jesus Himself celebrated Hanukkah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,61);
  • 01:01 In John 10:22-23 we read,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,64);
  • 01:04 [ Speaking Hebrew ]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,72);
  • 01:13 I love how the Lord Himself is keeping these Feasts.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,76);
  • 01:16 And we love bringing you these Feasts
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,77);
  • 01:18 because we know we're in the season of it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,80);
  • 01:20 The Jewish people are aware of it
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,81);
  • 01:22 so we want you the Church to be aware of it too.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,84);
  • 01:24 So lets go now and hear more from Myles on location in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,90);
  • 01:31 We're coming to you from an area that looks somewhat like
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,93);
  • 01:34 the places where the Maccabees would rest in-between battle,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,97);
  • 01:38 to speak to you about Hanukkah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,99);
  • 01:39 And I'm dressed in a Maccabean costume which
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,102);
  • 01:42 your not used to seeing me like this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,104);
  • 01:45 But we're pretty excited right now because recently,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,106);
  • 01:47 right near this area in the town of Modi'in outside of Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,111);
  • 01:51 we discovered a verification of the story of the Maccabees.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,115);
  • 01:56 Who were the Maccabees?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,117);
  • 01:58 Judah Maccabee, "The Hammer", the son of Mattathias,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,120);
  • 02:01 stood up against the entrenchment, the encroachment of
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,124);
  • 02:05 the Selucid Empire that was trying to obliterate Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,129);
  • 02:10 by a creeping in with a watering down and an assimilation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,135);
  • 02:15 that became so toxic that it led to the desecration of the Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,139);
  • 02:19 And so, Hanukkah is the story of the Maccabees rising up
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,143);
  • 02:23 in order to take back the Temple, which had to be cleansed.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,147);
  • 02:28 Now at this time, which is almost
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,150);
  • 02:30 200 years before the time of Yeshua ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,153);
  • 02:33 There was once again a decline in the Greek Empire.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,156);
  • 02:36 It was after Alexander the Great.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,158);
  • 02:39 The Romans were getting ready to take over.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,161);
  • 02:42 There was this difficulty between the nations surrounding,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,164);
  • 02:45 and always, Judah, Israel caught in the middle,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,168);
  • 02:48 and always a threat against the people of God
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,171);
  • 02:51 and against the ways of God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,173);
  • 02:53 Just as we see today there's always an attack
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,176);
  • 02:56 against the veracity of the Word of God,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,178);
  • 02:58 the truth of the Jewish history of the Land,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,181);
  • 03:01 and for you as a believer
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,184);
  • 03:04 in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,185);
  • 03:06 there is an attack that is growing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,187);
  • 03:08 against your faith in Yeshua
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,190);
  • 03:10 and your belief in standing with Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,192);
  • 03:13 Things don't change.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,194);
  • 03:14 There's nothing new under the sun.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,196);
  • 03:16 These same battles are going on today
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,198);
  • 03:18 that were going on back at the time
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,200);
  • 03:21 of this era that I'm demonstrating today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,203);
  • 03:24 Now the " Hanukiah ", the 8 candle stick
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,207);
  • 03:27 with the " Shamash ", the 9th candle is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,210);
  • 03:31 different from the candelabra from a Menorah that was in the Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,215);
  • 03:35 This represents the time of the desecration
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,218);
  • 03:39 and then the re-dedication of the oil of God,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,222);
  • 03:42 the sacred oil that allowed the Jewish people to keep the Temple going.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,226);
  • 03:47 Yeshua Himself, in those passages in John Chapters 7, 8, 9 and 10,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,231);
  • 03:52 He was in the Temple teaching and it is during
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,234);
  • 03:54 that season that He said, [ Speaking Hebrew ]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,242);
  • 04:02 Yeshua was there demonstrating for all who cared
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,245);
  • 04:05 to see that He was in fact, Mashiach ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,248);
  • 04:08 He is the Messiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,250);
  • 04:10 But the battle over His Word,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,252);
  • 04:13 the battle over the Land of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,255);
  • 04:15 the battle over the dedication of
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,257);
  • 04:17 those people of faith to our God continues.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,260);
  • 04:21 And it continues today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,262);
  • 04:22 It's really a story.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,263);
  • 04:23 God's story is a story of the triumph
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,265);
  • 04:25 of faith over speculative reason.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,270);
  • 04:30 You know the best that man can do,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,272);
  • 04:32 the best that man can think,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,273);
  • 04:34 it always falls short.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,275);
  • 04:36 Because humanism always falls short of the wisdom of God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,280);
  • 04:40 I like to say that the headlines are catching up to the Bible.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,283);
  • 04:43 The Bible, which is mocked,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,284);
  • 04:45 which is thought of as an ancient book,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,287);
  • 04:47 continually turns out to be true because it
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,289);
  • 04:50 is a prophetic book that came from heaven into time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,293);
  • 04:54 And this story, the story of the Maccabees and the rededication of the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,297);
  • 04:58 is a story once again that God will preserve His line of Israel so
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,302);
  • 05:03 that Messiah can come and preserve the Jewish people because it's His desire
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,307);
  • 05:08 that we will be here to welcome Yeshua when He comes.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,311);
  • 05:12 The main character in this story
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,315);
  • 05:15 of the desecration of the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,317);
  • 05:18 was Antiochus Epiphanes, the Magnificent.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,321);
  • 05:21 Well, behind his back the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,322);
  • 05:23 Jewish people called him
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,324);
  • 05:24 "Epifanes" which means "the madman",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,325);
  • 05:26 and he really was a madman.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,327);
  • 05:28 He desecrated the Temple by offering sacrifices to Zeus
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,330);
  • 05:31 and by offering unclean animals, pigs on the altar.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,334);
  • 05:35 And so the Temple was in such disarray
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,336);
  • 05:37 that not only was it a miracle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,339);
  • 05:39 that the Jewish people fought against this giant army and won,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,343);
  • 05:43 but also that the Temple could be rededicated and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,346);
  • 05:47 they could find enough sacred oil that would last
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,349);
  • 05:50 to be able to rededicate the Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,352);
  • 05:52 And I believe there's a message in that for us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,354);
  • 05:54 as those of you who are grafted in to the commonwealth of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,358);
  • 05:58 You need to stand in the Light of God and remember
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,362);
  • 06:03 the Scripture tells us [ Speaking Hebrew ]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,367);
  • 06:07 "God is my Light and my salvation."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,369);
  • 06:09 "Of whom shall I be afraid?"

  • 06:49 I'm here re-enacting for you something of
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,411);
  • 06:52 what the Maccabee life might have been like
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,414);
  • 06:55 when they were withstanding the Seleucid Empire.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,419);
  • 06:59 Imagine a small group of Maccabees,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,422);
  • 07:02 a Jewish, priestly line of fighters
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,426);
  • 07:06 standing up against an entire dynasty.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,428);
  • 07:09 And yet God, because of who He is,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,431);
  • 07:12 preserved the Jewish line.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,433);
  • 07:13 What's the importance?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,434);
  • 07:15 Why does it matter?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,436);
  • 07:16 Because without the preservation of the history
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,439);
  • 07:20 and the reality of the Jewish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,442);
  • 07:22 you would have no Jesus, I would have no Mashiach .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,446);
  • 07:26 The fact is God is faithful to His Word,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,448);
  • 07:29 He preserved the line of the Jewish people to bring us Messiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,454);
  • 07:34 And what did Jesus say about Himself,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,456);
  • 07:37 speaking of Hanukkah , speaking of Light,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,458);
  • 07:38 speaking of increasing Light.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,460);
  • 07:40 Remember that during Hanukkah we start with one candle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,463);
  • 07:44 and the Shamash , the Servant Candle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,465);
  • 07:46 And over the course of the 8 days there's increasing light.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,470);
  • 07:50 And isn't that the way the Kingdom of God is?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,472);
  • 07:53 It should be and is an ever increasing Kingdom,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,476);
  • 07:56 an ever increasing light.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,478);
  • 07:58 Yeshua Himself said [ Speaking Hebrew ]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,487);
  • 08:07 I remember when I was wrestling with the reality of Yeshua .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,491);
  • 08:11 You know I'm a Jewish person.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,492);
  • 08:13 How can I believe in this Catholic, Christian,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,495);
  • 08:15 Protestant Person - God - whatever He is?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,498);
  • 08:19 That wrestling match thankfully I lost
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,500);
  • 08:21 as He told me over and over again thru the Scriptures
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,504);
  • 08:25 that He is the Light of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,507);
  • 08:28 And that as I would allow myself to be touched by Him,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,510);
  • 08:30 I could participate with Him in being light in this world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,513);
  • 08:34 And we're in a season now where the light needs to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,516);
  • 08:37 increase as the darkness around us is increasing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,520);
  • 08:40 This story of Hanukkah is the story of the miracle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,523);
  • 08:43 of the preservation of the Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,525);
  • 08:46 but the miracle of rededication.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,528);
  • 08:49 One of the games that came up later in history is the Dradle game,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,533);
  • 08:53 this playing of a little, seemingly children's game
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,535);
  • 08:56 but preserves the Hebrew language to a degree.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,538);
  • 08:59 And the letters on the little top that's used in that game
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,542);
  • 09:03 spell out an acronym for
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,545);
  • 09:05 Nes - Gadol
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,546);
  • 09:07 Haya - Sham,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,548);
  • 09:08 "A great miracle happened there."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,549);
  • 09:10 Of course, if we play it here in Israel we say, " Nes gadol haya po "
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,553);
  • 09:14 "A great miracle happened here."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,556);
  • 09:17 And what's the miracle?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,557);
  • 09:18 Is it that the oil lasted for 8 days?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,560);
  • 09:20 The miracle is that God is able
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,562);
  • 09:23 to take that was desecrated and rededicate it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,566);
  • 09:26 That's what He did in my life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,567);
  • 09:28 That's what He is doing in my life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,569);
  • 09:30 That's what He wants to do with you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,571);
  • 09:31 That's what He wants to do in your life.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,572);
  • 09:33 He wants you to be able to rededicate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,575);
  • 09:35 not because of your righteousness,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,576);
  • 09:37 not because of what you can do,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,578);
  • 09:39 not because of your greatness in any way,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,580);
  • 09:41 but because of who He is,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,582);
  • 09:43 because of His righteousness,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,584);
  • 09:45 His goodness,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,586);
  • 09:47 His miracle keeping power,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,589);
  • 09:50 His covenant keeping power.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,591);
  • 09:52 He wants to dedicate you to Himself
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,594);
  • 09:55 and then constantly re-dedicate you to Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,599);
  • 09:59 You know I think about Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,601);
  • 10:01 Israel in a sense is like the Shamash candle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,604);
  • 10:05 It's this servant to the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,607);
  • 10:08 Through Israel we have the Torah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,609);
  • 10:10 we have the Word of God,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,611);
  • 10:12 we have the Patriarchs,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,613);
  • 10:13 and the stories that come from the Patriarchs
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,614);
  • 10:15 that inform everything that followed.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,617);
  • 10:18 It's what the disciples learned from.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,620);
  • 10:20 We have the Prophets.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,622);
  • 10:22 We have the Messiah Himself coming through the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,625);
  • 10:26 And even today, as we see the role of Israel in the world
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,629);
  • 10:30 as every nation is turning against Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,632);
  • 10:33 yet Israel and the Jewish people continue to provide light,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,636);
  • 10:36 continue to provide scientific breakthru, medical breakthru,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,640);
  • 10:40 every kind of innovation and technological help for this world,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,644);
  • 10:45 serving to increase the light in the world,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,648);
  • 10:48 serving the rest of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,650);
  • 10:50 How tragic that the world continues to not see who Israel is.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,655);
  • 10:55 But the day is coming when all Israel will say about Messiah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,660);
  • 11:01 Baruch Haba B'shem Adonai,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,663);
  • 11:03 and the world will say this one is true,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,667);

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,670);
  • 11:10 That day is coming soon.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,671);
  • 11:12 So that's why we always ask you to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,673);

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,679);
  • 11:19 stand with the Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,681);

  • 11:25 through this small group of people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,687);
  • 11:27 .02 percent of the population of the world
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,690);
  • 11:30 thru whom God has brought miracle after miracle after miracle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,695);
  • 11:35 That's part of the Hanukkah story.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,705);
  • 11:46 Our offer on this program,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,707);
  • 11:48 Zola Levitt's most requested teaching,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,710);
  • 11:50 "The Seven Feasts of Israel"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,712);
  • 11:52 The book and the DVD.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,714);
  • 11:55 A complete explanation of the Holy Days
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,717);
  • 11:57 God gave Moses on Mt. Sinai
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,719);
  • 12:00 and how each was fulfilled by our Lord in...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,731);
  • 12:12 These celebrations comprise
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,733);
  • 12:14 one of the most fascinating studies
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,735);
  • 12:15 of the biblical types and shadows.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,737);
  • 12:17 Ask for the book or the DVD,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,739);
  • 12:20 "The Seven Feasts of Israel"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,743);
  • 12:24 Myles, you're looking great
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,744);
  • 12:25 Thank you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,745);
  • 12:26 in your Maccabean outfit.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,747);
  • 12:27 Thank you, I'm getting in the spirit.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,748);
  • 12:29 We are, we're getting in the Spirit.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,750);
  • 12:30 We're here in the area
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,752);
  • 12:32 where some of the archaeological finds are
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,755);
  • 12:35 for this period of time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,756);
  • 12:37 But not only that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,758);
  • 12:38 Some people get the Hanukkah menorah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,760);
  • 12:41 confused with the menorah itself,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,763);
  • 12:43 the Hanukiah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,764);
  • 12:45 Tell us a little bit about that Myles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,766);
  • 12:47 Well, there is actually 9 candles if you include
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,769);
  • 12:50 the " Shamash " or the "Servant" candle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,771);
  • 12:52 that are used for the Hanukiah for this holiday.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,775);
  • 12:55 And it's in contrast with the 7 candelabra Menorah that is in the Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,780);
  • 13:00 That's the one that Moses during his 40 days up on the mountain
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,784);
  • 13:04 got the pattern for the Tabernacle in the wilderness
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,787);
  • 13:07 including the Menorah which then appears
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,789);
  • 13:10 not only in the Tabernacle but again in the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,792);
  • 13:12 and is really become the symbol of Israel hasn't it?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,794);
  • 13:15 Of Israel, but it's also a symbol of Jesus - Yeshua .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,798);
  • 13:19 You know He is the Light of the World
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,801);
  • 13:21 and He celebrated the Feast of Dedication
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,803);
  • 13:23 when He came on this earth
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,805);
  • 13:25 because He fulfilled everything.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,806);
  • 13:27 You know Moses saw the pattern for people to meet with the Lord.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,810);
  • 13:31 And part of that pattern was the Menorah , the 7 candlesticks.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,814);
  • 13:35 It was hammered with gold.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,816);
  • 13:37 It was hammered to represent the Deity of our Lord.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,820);
  • 13:40 And it was gold, that pure gold.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,823);
  • 13:43 And it was to be one piece, it was to be pure.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,826);
  • 13:46 And it had every detail because the Lord Himself
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,829);
  • 13:49 is so specific in pointing to Himself
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,832);
  • 13:52 as the fulfillment of each and every
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,834);
  • 13:55 article that is in that Tabernacle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,836);
  • 13:57 So when we think of Hanukkah ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,839);
  • 13:59 it's the celebration of God preserving
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,842);
  • 14:02 the people in the time of the Maccabees,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,844);
  • 14:05 in the time when the rulers of that time
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,847);
  • 14:08 wanted to get them to walk in mixture,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,850);
  • 14:11 wanted them to be part of this world's system.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,853);
  • 14:14 And thank God for the Maccabees.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,855);
  • 14:16 And I'm glad you're dressed as one because
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,858);
  • 14:19 they stood up and they took the Word to heart
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,861);
  • 14:21 and they said, no, we will not stand for the mixture,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,863);
  • 14:24 we will let the Lord be our Defender.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,866);
  • 14:26 And not only the Lord will be our Defender
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,868);
  • 14:28 but we will defend Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,870);
  • 14:30 we will defend the Word and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,871);
  • 14:32 we will not be part of the mixture.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,873);
  • 14:34 Yes, and there's always a spiritual battle
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,876);
  • 14:36 over Israel and over the Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,878);
  • 14:39 and over you as a person of faith whose been grafted in
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,882);
  • 14:42 to the commonwealth of Israel according to Ephesians Chapter 2.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,885);
  • 14:46 That spiritual warfare continues today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,888);
  • 14:48 There's the physical battle as armies
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,890);
  • 14:51 are arrayed against Israel today
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,892);
  • 14:53 just as they were in the time of the Maccabees.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,895);
  • 14:55 There's always a threat for Israel to just go away.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,898);
  • 14:58 Just go back to Europe and the nations where you came from.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,900);
  • 15:01 But this is where we came from.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,902);
  • 15:03 This is our homeland given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,906);
  • 15:06 You are grafted in to that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,907);
  • 15:08 That is why it is so important
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,910);
  • 15:10 that you continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,912);
  • 15:13 That you pray for the Jewish people to fulfill our destiny
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,916);
  • 15:16 to come into all that God has for us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,918);
  • 15:19 And that warfare continues.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,920);
  • 15:20 The warfare for the Maccabees was against
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,922);
  • 15:22 the mixture of the day as Katharine said,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,924);
  • 15:24 against being "Hellenized",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,926);
  • 15:26 being turned into some kind of Greco-Roman version of Judaism.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,930);
  • 15:30 And the Maccabees stood up and said, no, we will not do this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,934);
  • 15:34 But the necessary part was for them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,937);
  • 15:38 to re-dedicate the Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,939);
  • 15:40 Now it's interesting that the whole idea of the 8 days
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,942);
  • 15:43 and the miracle of the 8 days of the oil.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,944);
  • 15:45 That actually doesn't come into play
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,946);
  • 15:47 until 500 years after the time of the Maccabees.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,950);
  • 15:50 It's a more recent and cultural addition to the miracle story.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,954);
  • 15:55 What's the real miracle here?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,956);
  • 15:57 The miracle is that they could find enough oil,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,959);
  • 16:00 to find pure enough oil to re-dedicate the Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,963);
  • 16:03 An even greater miracle is that, once again,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,967);
  • 16:07 Shomer Yisrael , the Protector, the Guardian,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,970);
  • 16:10 God Himself watched over the Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,973);
  • 16:13 kept the people of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,974);
  • 16:15 re-dedicated the Temple,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,976);
  • 16:17 and brought us into the next phase of our history.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,979);
  • 16:19 It could not have happened without a miracle.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,981);
  • 16:21 I love what the 1st Prime Minister
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,983);
  • 16:24 David Ben Gurion said about Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,990);
  • 16:30 I think it's very normal here to believe in miracles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,993);
  • 16:34 This is a Land of miracles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,996);
  • 16:36 And Hanukkah represents one of those primary ones.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1000);
  • 16:40 Because once again God preserves the Jewish people and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1003);
  • 16:44 preserves the lineage that will lead to the coming of Messiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1009);
  • 16:49 And He Himself is the Light of the World.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1011);
  • 16:52 And he calls us to be that light.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1013);
  • 16:54 You know it says in Proverbs 4:18,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1021);
  • 17:02 And God is calling us as His righteous vessels here on earth
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1025);
  • 17:06 because He Himself has given us His righteousness
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1028);
  • 17:08 to shine that light and to walk in that light
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1031);
  • 17:11 and He will bring us into that perfect day.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1034);
  • 17:15 So I encourage you to do what God has asked you to do
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1037);
  • 17:18 and to shine in this time like never before.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1053);
  • 17:33 Hi, you know so much is happening
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1055);
  • 17:35 in the world today regarding Bible prophecy
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1057);
  • 17:38 and especially in Israel too.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1059);
  • 17:40 This is the lens through which everything has to be told.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1062);
  • 17:43 And that's what we're doing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1064);

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1127);
  • 18:48 Its His Land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1129);
  • 18:49 The first time I went to Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1130);
  • 18:51 and we landed,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1132);
  • 18:53 I felt this amazing peace.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1134);
  • 18:55 You know, often when people are
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1136);
  • 18:57 making plans to go to Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1138);
  • 18:58 it seems like there's conflict.

  • 19:17 That's great.

  • 19:18 You know, one way to stay in touch with us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1159);
  • 19:20 is to receive the Levitt Letter.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1160);
  • 19:21 It's free to you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1162);
  • 19:22 We'd be glad to send it to you every month.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1163);
  • 19:24 Katharine writes an article,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1165);
  • 19:25 I write an article
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1166);
  • 19:27 and it really sifts thru a lot of the news from Israel

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1176);
  • 19:37 So we'd love to send you the Levitt Letter as well.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1179);
  • 19:39 You know Myles, I have learned so much from you,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1181);
  • 19:41 as being a Gentile,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1183);
  • 19:43 grafted in to the commonwealth of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1186);
  • 19:46 Thank you for getting it in the right order.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1187);
  • 19:47 [laugh]...about Hanukkah ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1189);
  • 19:50 about the Feasts,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1191);
  • 19:51 they are really for us to keep as believers,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1193);
  • 19:54 that we learn more about our Messiah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1196);
  • 19:57 more about the roots that we have in Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1199);
  • 20:00 And it's not a Jewish thing,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1201);
  • 20:01 these are the Feasts of the Lord.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1203);
  • 20:03 And this is an extra Biblical Feast, Hanukkah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1205);
  • 20:06 It talks about like you said,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1208);
  • 20:08 it was not the Levitical 23.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1210);
  • 20:11 But it is a commemoration
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1212);
  • 20:13 of God's victory over oppressors.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1216);
  • 20:17 Yeah, Christians are not compelled to keep these holidays
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1219);
  • 20:20 but gosh, they can learn so much from them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1222);
  • 20:22 and will draw closer to the Lord.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1224);
  • 20:24 The whole issue of oil and the beauty of dedication,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1228);
  • 20:28 and the oil in the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1230);
  • 20:30 is really the theme of this,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1232);
  • 20:33 that there's something that God wants to do with us
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1234);
  • 20:34 and the oil of the Spirit
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1236);
  • 20:36 and washing us and re-dedicating ourselves to the Lord.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1239);
  • 20:39 We had a great interview with Zohar, our friend in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1241);
  • 20:42 He has this magnificent collection of historical menorahs
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1246);
  • 20:46 that we really want to show you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1248);
  • 20:48 So let's go to my interview with Zohar in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1252);
  • 20:53 Zohar, thank you for inviting us into your home
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1255);
  • 20:56 to see this miraculous collection
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1258);
  • 20:58 of Menoroth , Hanukioth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1260);
  • 21:00 This one you're holding tells the story of
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1262);
  • 21:03 the original Hanukkah, doesn't it?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1264);
  • 21:04 Exactly Myles.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1265);
  • 21:06 It's my pleasure to host you here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1267);
  • 21:08 If you look on this Menorah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1270);
  • 21:10 you see exactly the illustration
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1272);
  • 21:13 which was written in the book of the Macaabeans,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1275);
  • 21:16 namely Judah coming, cleaning the Temple,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1279);
  • 21:19 giving orders and renewing the altar work.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1283);
  • 21:23 So this one doesn't even look like a
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1285);
  • 21:26 traditional candelabra or Hanukiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1288);
  • 21:29 But you tell me its from Syria
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1290);
  • 21:30 and it was designed in such a way as to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1291);
  • 21:32 hide the fact that these were Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1294);
  • 21:34 Exactly, if I am raising it,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1296);
  • 21:37 it looks like a regular menorah to light your way.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1300);
  • 21:40 So it was telling to the one who was present,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1303);
  • 21:43 What do you want from me, I'm just lighting my...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1305);
  • 21:46 And it's a hidden sort of a menorah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1307);
  • 21:47 Brilliant!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1308);
  • 21:49 And this is one of the oldest ones,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1310);
  • 21:50 a replica but one of the oldest.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1311);
  • 21:51 A replica.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1312);
  • 21:53 It probably was made in Russia
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1314);
  • 21:54 upon the 10th century.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1315);
  • 21:56 You see it's triangular
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1317);
  • 21:57 which is easy to put it on the wall already.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1321);
  • 22:01 Therefore there is the hole.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1323);
  • 22:03 And you see it's small because the Jews were oppressed.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1325);
  • 22:05 They had to run away for their life
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1327);
  • 22:08 so they made it small, not a big one.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1329);
  • 22:09 Now this collection comes from all over the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1331);
  • 22:11 All over the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1332);
  • 22:13 For example, this was made in Morocco.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1334);
  • 22:15 And it has that look,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1336);
  • 22:16 a Spanish sort of an African look.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1338);
  • 22:18 If you speak about the look
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1339);
  • 22:20 you see here...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1340);
  • 22:21 that's the ancient clay made form that the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1345);
  • 22:25 light would come out of it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1347);
  • 22:27 And here you see another one. Another older.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1351);
  • 22:32 This tells the story of Yitzhak and Rifkah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1354);
  • 22:34 Made by Battalia,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1356);
  • 22:37 the school of the artisans
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1358);
  • 22:39 at the beginning of the 20th century.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1361);
  • 22:41 So they wanted to make sort of Biblical motifs.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1364);
  • 22:44 By the way if it is written "Battalia"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1367);
  • 22:47 you know its the original.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1368);
  • 22:49 If not, it's not.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1369);
  • 22:50 And this one, this incredible craftsmanship
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1372);
  • 22:53 was done by a holocaust survivor I think you said.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1375);
  • 22:55 This is unbelievable,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1376);
  • 22:57 I would say even chilling.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1378);
  • 22:58 I know about him,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1379);
  • 23:00 he was called the German,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1381);
  • 23:01 once in awhile coming and selling to some workshops.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1384);
  • 23:04 He has candelabras or menorahs ,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1387);
  • 23:08 taking the money, very few and going away.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1390);
  • 23:11 He never spoke, he never said a word.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1393);
  • 23:13 But look how good he made it!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1395);
  • 23:15 You can see the columns of the Temple, the lions.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1398);
  • 23:18 Everything of the story is here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1400);
  • 23:21 A proud Jew, was very proud.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1404);
  • 23:24 Yes, and silent about whatever happened in Germany.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1406);
  • 23:27 He never spoke.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1408);
  • 23:28 Merchants knew him only as the German.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1411);
  • 23:31 And the patterns repeat themselves.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1413);
  • 23:34 There's the lions of Judah protecting the candelabra.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1417);
  • 23:38 It's amazing to me that this story is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1420);
  • 23:41 preserved in all the nations of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1422);
  • 23:43 And we see that throughout these different ones don't we?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1425);
  • 23:45 Exactly, what you said is completely right.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1428);
  • 23:48 And coming again to the German pattern
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1430);
  • 23:51 you see the columns here,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1432);
  • 23:53 you see the lions, the two lions,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1435);
  • 23:55 the menorah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1436);
  • 23:57 because it's called in Hebrew
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1438);
  • 23:58 [ Speaking Hebrew ]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1440);
  • 24:01 It's really taken care for the menorah .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1442);
  • 24:03 I mean cleaning it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1444);
  • 24:04 And here you see the " Keturah ",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1446);
  • 24:07 "The Holiness" on top of it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1448);
  • 24:09 So those stories here
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1450);
  • 24:11 made in a sort of metal work.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1453);
  • 24:13 I was surprised to find out that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1455);
  • 24:15 what we say, " Hanukiah " is a brand new word.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1458);
  • 24:18 It comes from the restoration of the Hebrew language
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1460);
  • 24:20 100 years ago or so.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1462);
  • 24:22 It wasn't even the original name for these.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1464);
  • 24:25 That's totally news to me.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1467);
  • 24:27 There was a very famous name in Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1470);
  • 24:31 Eliazer BenHuda, he re-invented Hebrew.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1473);
  • 24:34 And his wife Devora helped him a lot.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1476);
  • 24:37 And she invented the Hanukiah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1478);
  • 24:39 because you know in America
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1480);
  • 24:40 or whatever it's called " menorah ".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1482);
  • 24:43 But only in Israel its called " hanukiah ",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1484);
  • 24:45 Ah, I did not know that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1486);
  • 24:46 sometimes "candelabra".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1487);
  • 24:48 Yes, so we have essentially in your collection
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1492);
  • 24:53 you have the history of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1494);
  • 24:54 the history of the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1495);
  • 24:56 But if you notice I don't have nothing from the Holocaust
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1498);
  • 24:59 because it was a very dark period for Jews.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1501);
  • 25:02 And one question one has to ask himself.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1505);
  • 25:05 Where are the million menorahs
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1508);
  • 25:08 that were robbed from our people?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1510);
  • 25:10 You don't find them
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1512);
  • 25:12 because the Nazis were just criminals,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1514);
  • 25:15 they took them.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1516);
  • 25:17 So they're still gone?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1518);
  • 25:18 There were...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1519);
  • 25:19 After this the industry renewed
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1523);
  • 25:23 and it finally lived more or less until 2004.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1529);
  • 25:30 And then the Chinese came, you know.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1532);
  • 25:33 But still there were a lot artisans
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1535);
  • 25:35 in Israel and abroad also that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1537);
  • 25:37 are doing quite nice in menorahs .
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1539);
  • 25:40 So when we say the Chinese came
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1542);
  • 25:42 meaning there was a less expensive
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1544);
  • 25:44 commercial version that started to appear
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1546);
  • 25:46 and it hurt the market for true artisans here in the country.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1549);
  • 25:49 Well thank you very much.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1551);
  • 25:51 I am very impressed with this
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1552);
  • 25:53 and I know our viewers will be
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1554);
  • 25:55 thrilled to see what you have collected here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1556);
  • 25:57 And you know, I'm finishing by telling you
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1558);
  • 25:59 the desire to come back to Zion
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1561);
  • 26:01 is expressed in this menorah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1563);
  • 26:04 wherever Jews were living around the world for 2,000 years.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1567);
  • 26:07 Isn't this something?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1568);
  • 26:08 Amazing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1568);
  • 26:09 Thank you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1569);
  • 26:10 Thank you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1577);
  • 26:17 You know, there's nothing like
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1578);
  • 26:19 bringing you these programs from Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1581);
  • 26:21 where you get to taste a character like Zohar
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1584);
  • 26:25 who has collected these menorahs
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1586);
  • 26:27 from around the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1588);
  • 26:29 Yeah, you know it's interesting that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1590);
  • 26:30 Zohar is doing this in the Land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1592);
  • 26:32 This could not have happened before
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1594);
  • 26:34 God made good on His prophecy
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1596);
  • 26:36 that He would gather us out of all the nations.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1598);
  • 26:39 The first gathering was from Babylon.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1600);
  • 26:41 The next gathering was from all the nations
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1603);
  • 26:43 and so that's where we are now in time.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1605);
  • 26:45 And just like the people have been
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1607);
  • 26:47 brought back to the Land
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1608);
  • 26:49 so these obvious menorahs that are a pictured treasure,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1614);
  • 26:54 a picture of the history of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1617);
  • 26:57 the Jewish history with God is all being
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1619);
  • 26:59 gathered back into Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1621);
  • 27:02 and being sent out as light,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1623);
  • 27:04 hopefully thru this program as well.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1625);
  • 27:05 Being sent out to show that God is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1627);
  • 27:08 going to fulfill His Word.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1629);
  • 27:09 Amen, amen.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1630);
  • 27:11 He's a covenant keeping God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1633);
  • 27:13 Well we always like to close our program
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1635);
  • 27:15 by reminding you of Psalm 122:6
