Caption transcript for “Answering Your Questions”

  • 00:04 Coming up on Zola Levitt Presents
  • 00:06 we answer letters from viewers
  • 00:08 with issues you'll want to know about.
  • 00:29 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel
  • 00:33 is that they might be saved
  • 00:35 for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek
  • 00:38 for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
  • 00:54 Shalom, Havarim Welcome Friends to our program.
  • 00:57 I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 00:58 And I'm Katharine Weiss
  • 00:59 And welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 01:01 Today we are going to hear from you, our viewers.
  • 01:04 We love it when you write to us.
  • 01:05 We love hearing what you have to say
  • 01:08 and we love answering your questions.
  • 01:10 Yes we do.
  • 01:11 We have some great letters today we want to go over with you,
  • 01:13 some really profound issues that people write to us about,
  • 01:16 the concerns they have theologically, prophetically
  • 01:19 and so let's start with a letter from R.S.
  • 01:21 And he says...
  • 01:38 Well this goes to the heart beat of
  • 01:40 why we have this program,
  • 01:42 why we ask for your support,
  • 01:43 why we keep bringing this message to the entire world because
  • 01:46 we're getting closer to the time of His return.
  • 01:49 And He's not coming to Washington D.C.
  • 01:51 He's not coming to Mexico City.
  • 01:53 He's not coming to London or Paris.
  • 01:55 He is returning to Jerusalem
  • 01:57 according to Scriptures.
  • 01:59 Zechariah 14 and Acts Chapter 2
  • 02:02 speak about this Messiah coming back to the Mount of Olives.
  • 02:06 So the question that you're asking about
  • 02:08 Are the Jewish people looking for Him?
  • 02:10 We are looking for Messiah but there's a stumbling block
  • 02:13 because of the political history
  • 02:15 of the Church vis a vis the Jewish people.
  • 02:18 People sometimes come to me especially at our congregation
  • 02:21 and they say, I am just so impressed that you understand who Jesus is,
  • 02:25 and yet so many of your people don't know who He is.
  • 02:27 Well, that's why we bring our testimony.
  • 02:29 That's why we share our story.
  • 02:31 Because when my people look at the Gospel
  • 02:34 they don't always see Jesus first.
  • 02:37 First they see the Crusades, the Inquisition,
  • 02:40 the Pograms in Europe and the Holocaust
  • 02:42 all of which they associate with non-Jews
  • 02:45 or in our minds, before Yeshua , Christians.
  • 02:48 So it is a huge stumbling block of blood split,
  • 02:52 and persecution and exile
  • 02:54 that is connected with the Gospel.
  • 02:56 So it makes it harder for us.
  • 02:58 But there's some Good News growing
  • 02:59 in the Land, isn't there?
  • 03:01 Well I think we're further obviously than 30 years ago.
  • 03:04 But there's revival happening in Israel.
  • 03:08 And that's not something that you
  • 03:10 will hear on the secular news channel.
  • 03:13 But you'll hear it here.
  • 03:14 You know, there's revival
  • 03:16 and there's such a beautiful partnering
  • 03:19 that's happening in these times
  • 03:21 between the Church and the Jewish people.
  • 03:23 And it has to do with ministries like ours
  • 03:26 where we are saying that we need to be a bridge builder.
  • 03:29 We need to be an answer to the people
  • 03:32 that might have been hurt by the past views of Christianity.
  • 03:35 And there's bringing a new face of Christianity
  • 03:38 which is this "One New Man".
  • 03:40 Yes, the growing towards a "One New Man"
  • 03:43 where all will believe in the Messiah of Israel.
  • 03:45 Now, Matthew 23:39 that you refer to,
  • 03:49 it says, Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
  • 03:54 It leads up to what's called the spine of
  • 03:56 theological prophecy in the New Testament
  • 03:59 which is Matthew 24.
  • 04:01 And Matthew 24:14 tells the disciples
  • 04:05 that this Gospel
  • 04:06 will go into all the world,
  • 04:08 it will be preached around the world
  • 04:09 and then the end will come.
  • 04:11 So we have this dual focus
  • 04:14 on the part of the Lord where He's saying to the Jewish people,
  • 04:16 You better call on me,
  • 04:17 You better watch for me.
  • 04:18 I'm coming.
  • 04:19 And also says to the disciples
  • 04:21 that this Gospel will go around the world.
  • 04:23 And how would that happen?
  • 04:24 Because the Jewish Disciples who made up the first Church
  • 04:27 would go out to the whole world
  • 04:29 and preach the Gospel to the Gentiles
  • 04:31 multiplying the ability of this Good News
  • 04:34 to go around the world.
  • 04:35 And we see that now with the Gospel arising
  • 04:38 in China, and in India and in Africa and in Iran.
  • 04:42 Around the world the Gospel is growing
  • 04:44 because of those seminal words that Yeshua spoke back then.
  • 04:47 I love this story that we heard from our friends in China
  • 04:50 when we interviewed Brother Yun on the Mount of Olives.
  • 04:53 If you haven't seen that program you need to see it.
  • 04:55 It's about the "Back to Jerusalem"
  • 04:57 movement that's coming out of China.
  • 04:59 And I spoke to Brother Yun's agent,
  • 05:01 his young friend,
  • 05:03 about Mega Voice.
  • 05:05 This incredible small pocket sized
  • 05:08 solar powered water proof
  • 05:11 Audio Bible in the languages
  • 05:13 of the unreached people groups of the earth.
  • 05:15 It's no longer generations of translators...
  • 05:18 scribes translating the Word from original languages into
  • 05:24 the languages of the unreached groups.
  • 05:26 But now... [snaps his fingers]
  • 05:27 it's an instantaneous digital age where
  • 05:30 the Gospel's going around the world.
  • 05:31 And he said, well I can go one more, one better than that
  • 05:34 because we realize since we're in China...
  • 05:37 This was an expensive little piece of equipment
  • 05:39 that was developed between Israel, Canada and Australia.
  • 05:43 But they say, we go one better.
  • 05:44 What we do is we wire our people when we send them
  • 05:48 into the darkest places...
  • 05:50 into Iran, into Afghanistan, into North Korea.
  • 05:53 They send missionaries from China into these places
  • 05:57 and they are wired to be a hot spot
  • 05:59 so that everyone within a certain radius
  • 06:02 is offered a free download of the video Gospel in their own language.
  • 06:08 And I thought...
  • 06:09 We are at the Gate.
  • 06:10 we are near to the coming of the Lord.
  • 06:12 Even so come Lord Jesus.
  • 06:15 And I do believe that we are
  • 06:17 closer than we think Myles.
  • 06:19 Yeah.
  • 06:20 So I hope that answers your question.
  • 06:22 Yes, we are looking for Messiah .
  • 06:24 As our friend David Ruben said...
  • 06:26 He's an Orthodox Jewish man,
  • 06:28 the former Mayor of Shiloh.
  • 06:30 He said, Myles we'll all be on the mountain looking for Messiah .
  • 06:34 And if you're right I'll be like this.
  • 06:36 That's Jesus.
  • 06:37 And if I'm right you'll be like this.
  • 06:40 Praying like a Jewish person would pray.
  • 06:43 And so we know that there's a shared destiny
  • 06:46 as we look for the coming
  • 06:48 of the King of the Jews
  • 06:49 and the Savior of the world.
  • 06:51 I hope that helps you.
  • 06:53 We'll answer more of your questions after the break.

  • 07:33 Our offer on this program...
  • 07:35 "An Epic Love Story, Jew & Gentile One in Messiah"
  • 07:40 by Myles Weiss.
  • 07:42 This booklet answers some questions you may have
  • 07:44 about timely and vital issues.
  • 07:46 For example...
  • 07:55 "An Epic Love Story" will take you on a journey through time
  • 07:58 into the heart and mind of the Apostle Paul
  • 08:01 when he was inspired to write to the Roman Church.
  • 08:03 Call 1-800-WONDERS and ask for "An Epic Love Story"
  • 08:12 Our offer to you is "An Epic Love Story"
  • 08:14 It is the book that Myles wrote
  • 08:16 about Romans 9 through 11
  • 08:18 and it is all based on the Scripture
  • 08:20 that God has not forsaken His people
  • 08:23 and that it's the restoration time that we're in.
  • 08:26 And it's also a little bit of a touch
  • 08:29 of how to witness to a Jewish person.
  • 08:31 You know, we as Gentiles are to provoke the Jews
  • 08:34 to jealousy so that they want what we have.
  • 08:37 I remember when we were leading a tour in Israel
  • 08:41 somebody came up to me and reminded me of that when
  • 08:45 they were young Israeli and these tours would come
  • 08:48 that they would see these people praying
  • 08:51 and having this presence about them that they wanted and
  • 08:54 that they were viewing from a distance
  • 08:57 but they knew that they had something
  • 08:59 that they were lacking in their own life.
  • 09:01 So really coming to Israel is as a witness.
  • 09:03 It is.
  • 09:04 How we operate in the Land.
  • 09:06 How the fruit of the Spirit obviously.
  • 09:09 But the prayers, the songs, just the testimony of why we care.
  • 09:14 Because we believe the Word and we act on the Word.
  • 09:17 It is such a testimony.
  • 09:19 That person later came to faith.
  • 09:20 She became a Believer.
  • 09:21 And then joined one of our tours
  • 09:23 because she wanted to have the full experience of
  • 09:26 what it was like to be an Israeli Jewish Believer
  • 09:29 with a Christian tour group.
  • 09:32 Even though she had lived in the Land for many years
  • 09:35 she wanted to experience it in that light and she had a great time.
  • 09:38 That fellowship that she really was enjoying.
  • 09:41 Let's go to another letter here.
  • 09:42 This comes from S.N.R.S. in North Carolina.
  • 09:45 They say...
  • 10:01 Well, first of all some ministries, some organizations
  • 10:06 that are fundraising
  • 10:09 will take what I call "the crying Russian syndrome".
  • 10:12 They will highlight the worst of the worst.
  • 10:14 The most difficult and the most difficult.
  • 10:16 The fact is there are Israelis in need.
  • 10:18 There are 22 per cent of the Israelis are
  • 10:21 living but are living below the poverty line.
  • 10:23 It's primarily Holocaust Survivors, sad to say.
  • 10:26 It's also new immigrants and even some Arab-Israelis,
  • 10:29 the ultra-Orthodox.
  • 10:31 It's a mixed group.
  • 10:32 But they do have issues there.
  • 10:33 At the same time the economy is booming.
  • 10:35 It hasn't filtered down to everyone
  • 10:38 and so there are some people that are suffering.
  • 10:40 Now, what I encourage people to do is to be
  • 10:44 aware of organizations that are raising money for social activity
  • 10:49 but they are decidedly anti-Gospel,
  • 10:52 anti-Messianic body
  • 10:54 and against the work that we and others in the Land are doing.
  • 10:57 We want to support the groups that are doing social work,
  • 11:00 they're blessing the poor,
  • 11:02 but they are also bringing them the Good News.
  • 11:04 Right,the Eternal Salvation.
  • 11:05 Exactly.
  • 11:06 You know, it's one thing to invest in the Nation
  • 11:09 and that's good.
  • 11:10 Yes, Genesis 12
  • 11:11 We are to bless the children of Abraham.
  • 11:13 Absolutely.
  • 11:15 But there's also the mandate from Galations 6:10
  • 11:19 to bless those, to do good to all,
  • 11:22 especially to those of
  • 11:23 the household of faith.
  • 11:24 Right, right.
  • 11:25 And we want to support people that are
  • 11:27 bringing the Gospel along with social services.
  • 11:29 Be aware if they're bringing the Gospel
  • 11:31 and if they're also standing with Messianics.
  • 11:34 "Messianic" is somebody who is a Jewish person
  • 11:38 who believes in his Messiah...
  • 11:40 in Jesus as his Messiah.
  • 11:42 And it doesn't have any other trapping than that.
  • 11:45 You're just simply a man of faith.
  • 11:47 You didn't convert from Judaism.
  • 11:49 No, it's not a sin to be a Jew.
  • 11:50 You converted from sin
  • 11:52 and you kept your Jewish identity.
  • 11:54 Yeah, and I think that it's important
  • 11:55 that when we give...
  • 11:57 I know for us personally,
  • 11:58 we want to give our funds to
  • 12:00 organizations, to bodies, to
  • 12:02 living, fruitful works in Israel
  • 12:04 that are doing the work of helping
  • 12:06 the poor but also bringing them...
  • 12:09 like you said,
  • 12:10 the most important gift.
  • 12:11 A friend of mine in Israel said,
  • 12:12 If you bless Israel that's wonderful
  • 12:14 but if you hide the gift of Yeshua then you're
  • 12:17 keeping the greatest blessing from us.
  • 12:19 Absolutely.
  • 12:20 I believe that.
  • 12:21 Here's another letter.
  • 12:23 It comes from G.L.
  • 12:27 And it's kind of a complex letter
  • 12:30 so I'll Paraphrase it.
  • 12:32 It speaks about the covenant with Abraham,
  • 12:35 the grafting-in of the Gentiles
  • 12:37 and the different views of Scripture and the world that
  • 12:40 the Christians and the Jews have.
  • 12:42 So let me try to paraphrase it.
  • 12:44 And I'll read you my answer here.
  • 13:01 And sometimes people think that it's either / or
  • 13:03 but God can do both.
  • 13:05 He can save an individual Jewish person
  • 13:07 at the same time that I'm believing Romans 11:26
  • 13:10 that all Israel will be saved.
  • 13:11 But it's two different ways of viewing the world.
  • 13:14 God's capable of both which offends our
  • 13:16 tendency to put Him into a box.
  • 13:27 And some of these seeming dichotomies
  • 13:30 are throughout the Scripture.
  • 13:31 that's why some of it is hard to understand the person of Messiah
  • 13:34 because the Jewish people are looking for
  • 13:36 Mashiach ben Yosef , the son of Joseph.
  • 13:40 and others Mashiach ben David .
  • 13:42 So the Suffering Servant and the Reigning King.
  • 13:45 Well, which is He?
  • 13:46 Is the Messiah a Suffering Servant like Joseph?
  • 13:48 Or is He a Reigning King like David?
  • 13:51 Well, He's both, right?
  • 13:53 Right.
  • 13:54 He is the Suffering Servant who gave His life as Lamb of God.
  • 13:58 Isaiah 53, John 1:19,
  • 14:01 but He is also the Reigning King who
  • 14:05 will return as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah
  • 14:08 according to the Book of Revelation.
  • 14:10 Absolutely, Yeah.
  • 14:11 And it's our job to be like Abraham
  • 14:13 and to pray...
  • 14:15 You know, to pray that...
  • 14:16 to stand in that intercession for the one, you know,
  • 14:19 but to believe for the whole nation.
  • 14:21 Yeah, while we're waiting for Revelation 5:5
  • 14:24 when He comes as the Lion of Judah
  • 14:26 let's stand with Israel
  • 14:28 whether they are believers in Jesus or not
  • 14:30 let's stand with them because that is our mandate
  • 14:33 going back to the beginning of the Bible
  • 14:35 is to stand with what God is standing with
  • 14:37 and that is including the precious seed that
  • 14:41 he has brought through the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • 14:45 We'll be back after this.
  • 15:00 The wonders of the Bible
  • 15:01 can only be experienced in Israel
  • 15:03 Zola Tours invites you to join
  • 15:05 Myles and Katharine Weiss
  • 15:07 on a dream vacation you will never forget.
  • 15:10 We offer a Deluxe 10 Day Tour
  • 15:12 in the Spring and the Fall
  • 15:14 with an optional extension to see
  • 15:15 the Rose Red City of Petra
  • 15:17 or cruise Greece
  • 15:18 where the Apostle Paul witnessed to the Gentiles
  • 15:21 To experience the study tour of a lifetime
  • 15:24 call 1-800-WONDERS
  • 15:26 or visit us at levitt.com
  • 15:31 Katharine and I recently heard from
  • 15:32 a Pastor of a large church here in America
  • 15:35 who asked us regarding the preaching, teaching
  • 15:38 of the message of Israel
  • 15:41 and the importance of Israel to the Church.
  • 15:42 He was concerned that if he did that with his congregation
  • 15:46 that they would think he was anti-Arab, anti-Palestinian.
  • 15:50 So he called and he wanted to
  • 15:52 get some advice and counsel about that.
  • 15:54 And I wanted to address that because
  • 15:55 I think there may be others out here,
  • 15:57 congregants, pastors, leaders, elders, deacons.
  • 15:59 Whoever you are, you may be concerned that
  • 16:02 because we promote Israel and we believe
  • 16:05 in the re-establishing, the rebirth of Israel
  • 16:08 because it's in the Bible that
  • 16:10 that means we're anti-Arab and
  • 16:11 nothing could be further from the truth.
  • 16:14 We've dedicated our lives and this ministry believes that God is
  • 16:17 not willing that any should perish
  • 16:20 but all come to everlasting life.
  • 16:22 And we've had our involvement with Arab ministries
  • 16:25 in the Land and in America for...
  • 16:28 since the beginning of our work.
  • 16:30 We have connections with believers who are Arabs.
  • 16:34 We believe that it's a blessing to the heart of God
  • 16:37 when Jews and Arabs get along together.
  • 16:39 And the glue for us is Sar Shalom , the Prince of Peace.
  • 16:44 Yeah.
  • 16:45 Well it was a mandate that God gave us when we began this ministry.
  • 16:48 The ministry that we have together as a Jewish believer
  • 16:52 and as a Gentile believer
  • 16:55 to hold the identity of Jesus as the Messiah of the Jews
  • 16:59 Yes
  • 17:00 But also to always pray for our Arab cousins
  • 17:03 and to reach for them.
  • 17:04 Yeah, for over 10 years, maybe 15 years I've been
  • 17:06 preaching a message called "Healing the Family Feud"
  • 17:09 which I think explains what's happened
  • 17:12 between the sons of Isaac and the sons of Ishmael.
  • 17:15 And it's up to us to be reaching for both.
  • 17:17 We need to reaching for the sons of Ishmael, the Arab peoples,
  • 17:21 as well as the sons of Isaac the Jewish people.
  • 17:23 I like what you say Myles.
  • 17:25 You say that to be pro-Israel
  • 17:27 is not to be anti-Arab.
  • 17:29 Yeah, say that again, that's good.
  • 17:31 Well to be pro-Israel
  • 17:33 or to be pro-Jerusalem
  • 17:35 is not to be anti-Arab,
  • 17:37 that God has an answer for us,
  • 17:40 for both the people groups.
  • 17:41 Yeah, we all need to come through the door of Messiah.
  • 17:44 Listen to Ephesians 2:14
  • 17:59 and that goes for male and female,
  • 18:01 Jew and Gentile, Jew and Arab.
  • 18:03 It goes for all of us who find ourselves in the Body of Messiah.
  • 18:07 We are to reach for and reach to one another in love.
  • 18:10 So to be pro-Israel is not to be anti-Arab.
  • 18:14 Quite the contrary.
  • 18:16 We want all to know the love of God.
  • 18:19 And we were given by the Ministry of Tourism
  • 18:21 when we were doing our TV show,
  • 18:24 one of the vehicles that they helped us have
  • 18:27 while we were going and doing these TV shows...
  • 18:29 You know, all the TV that's filmed is all filmed in Israel.
  • 18:34 I mean, we are there in the Land
  • 18:36 and wanting to bring you the
  • 18:38 authentic message from the Land itself.
  • 18:41 accept for this time in the studio,
  • 18:43 all the teachings done in Israel.
  • 18:45 So...but one of our drivers was a Muslim.
  • 18:49 And he was just the sweetest man and
  • 18:52 we got to share our faith with him.
  • 18:54 And one of his testimonies was to you Myles.
  • 18:57 He said, where your people are - order,
  • 19:00 where my people are - chaos.
  • 19:03 He was pretty funny.
  • 19:04 He was very funny.
  • 19:06 But it's not to bash the Arabs,
  • 19:08 but it's to bring an understanding
  • 19:11 that unless the Arab people come into the Light of Messiah
  • 19:14 they won't have the order that God wants them to have.
  • 19:17 When Islam is ruling over them
  • 19:19 it's the spirit, it's a dark spirit,
  • 19:21 it's an anti-Christ spirit and that
  • 19:23 anti-Christ spirit will bring chaos into their lives.
  • 19:27 So, it's our job to bring the Gospel.
  • 19:30 It's our job to bring the Light.
  • 19:32 It's our job to bring the love.
  • 19:34 We are never anti-Arab.
  • 19:36 We are pro-Arabs hearing the Good News of the Gospel.
  • 19:39 We're pro-Humanity.
  • 19:42 So, here's another one that is kind of related
  • 19:44 but it says...
  • 19:53 By the way, the newsletter is free to you.
  • 19:55 Just contact us, we'll send you the Levitt Letter.
  • 20:13 He's referring to an article that we wrote, we published
  • 20:16 called "Hate Islam but love the Muslims"
  • 20:33 Well we received the blessing.
  • 20:34 Thank you for that.
  • 20:36 I wanted to recount an interesting thing that happened to us
  • 20:39 when we had the blessing and the
  • 20:41 privilege of speaking into Tehran, Iran.
  • 20:45 We were on Dr. Hormoz Shariat's television program
  • 20:49 for an hour that was broadcast in Farsi, their native language
  • 20:53 and translated into English in our ears
  • 20:55 so we could hear the Farsi and understand it.
  • 20:57 And for an hour we had a chance to preach and teach into Iran
  • 21:01 to new believers and pre-believers
  • 21:03 who were gathered to hear the Gospel
  • 21:05 which is going into Iran every evening
  • 21:09 by Dr. Hormoz Shariat's "Iran Alive" program.
  • 21:12 He said something fascinating to me.
  • 21:14 Now remember, these folks are coming out of Islam
  • 21:16 or recently come out of Islam
  • 21:17 which has the patriarchal, anti-Women
  • 21:20 kind of a mentality within marriage.
  • 21:22 And he said, Myles...
  • 21:24 right before we went on the air he said,
  • 21:26 Myles, they'll be listening to your words
  • 21:29 but they'll be watching your marriage.
  • 21:31 And we believe that we have an opportunity
  • 21:35 by the way we live and by the way we serve one another
  • 21:37 to demonstrate something of unity and love that can be
  • 21:41 a witness to those coming out of Islam
  • 21:44 because there's a lot of heartache in those marriages.
  • 21:48 Well, I'm grateful that God made a way for the women to
  • 21:52 have a voice in this time.
  • 21:53 You know, all through Scripture,
  • 21:55 whether it'd be Ruth or it's Esther,
  • 21:59 or whomever the Lord chooses...
  • 22:01 whether it'd be Mary Magdalene at the Gate
  • 22:03 waiting for the Messiah to return at the Garden Tomb,
  • 22:07 God gave women the ability to have a voice about the Good News.
  • 22:11 Yeah, and we know that the man is the head of the house
  • 22:15 but the woman is the neck and she turns the head.
  • 22:18 And so we know that we need to work together
  • 22:21 in order to bring the fullness of the Gospel
  • 22:23 and demonstrate a home picture of the love of God.
  • 22:27 We want that for our Muslim friends.
  • 22:29 We want them to be liberated from the oppression of Sharia,
  • 22:35 from the oppression that the Koran teaches
  • 22:37 about the alleged relationship between men and women.
  • 22:40 We'll be back after this.

  • 23:17 Welcome back to our Letters section
  • 23:19 We have a letter from K.D.F. who writes...
  • 23:42 And the question that comes is
  • 23:43 where is America in Bible Prophecy?
  • 23:46 And this comes up a lot.
  • 23:48 Well, there are no specifics about America.
  • 23:51 There's been a lot of conjecture based on
  • 23:53 the cult of Anglo-Israelism
  • 23:55 that is set over the decades
  • 23:57 that America as a child of England
  • 23:59 is one of the young lions that
  • 24:01 is spoken of later in prophecy.
  • 24:02 But it really doesn't stand up to scrutiny
  • 24:06 as much as the solid Word of God which
  • 24:08 speaks about those sheep nations and
  • 24:11 goat nations that God will judge.
  • 24:13 Yeshua said in the Gospels that He would come and
  • 24:16 that He would judge nations according to
  • 24:19 whether they were sheep at His right hand
  • 24:20 or goats at His left.
  • 24:22 And so there is coming a reckoning for every nation
  • 24:25 regarding whether we stand with Israel and the Jewish people.
  • 24:29 Historically America has been a great friend of Israel.
  • 24:34 There's been a symbiotic or a
  • 24:36 very connected relationship,
  • 24:38 what they call the "no daylight relationship".
  • 24:41 It was so close that they were in mutual contact
  • 24:44 about world events and politics and military issues.
  • 24:48 Recently that has been less the case.
  • 24:51 Well, I think it has to do with people
  • 24:52 that have been influencing our
  • 24:54 governments or our schools...
  • 24:56 mainly Islam and pulling us away
  • 24:58 from our Judeo- Christian values
  • 25:01 and bringing us more into a
  • 25:03 secular humanistic value which
  • 25:05 piggy-backs on a Islamic mind set.
  • 25:10 Yeah it becomes kind of like a
  • 25:12 perfect storm of anti-Israelism
  • 25:14 that can come to any nation.
  • 25:16 And I believe that Zechariah Chapter 14
  • 25:20 really speaks about all the nations of the earth who will
  • 25:23 come against Israel at some point and
  • 25:26 Messiah Himself will intervene.
  • 25:27 And here's what the Word of God
  • 25:29 says about the nations of the world...
  • 25:56 Well, I think the mandate is upon us to practice now
  • 26:00 blessing and being part of and looking towards this millennial future
  • 26:04 where there will be this time of
  • 26:07 connecting with Israel when the real international
  • 26:11 "One New Man" of Ephesians Chapter 2
  • 26:13 will come to pass in reality and
  • 26:15 the nations of the world will join themselves
  • 26:18 to the Jewish Feast Festival
  • 26:21 to go up to Jerusalem
  • 26:22 in the seasons of the Lord
  • 26:24 to worship the Great King.
  • 26:26 And if not they will have no rain on their land
  • 26:29 which is a very serious problem.
  • 26:32 So I think that the mandates that are written in Scripture
  • 26:35 have to do with standing with Israel,
  • 26:37 blessing Israel,
  • 26:38 blessing the sons of Abraham and
  • 26:39 being prepared to join in the celebration
  • 26:43 according to the way God says to celebrate.
  • 26:45 And as a believer we can rest and be
  • 26:50 assured that, you know, God, Jesus is our King
  • 26:55 and that our President is not our king.
  • 26:58 Right
  • 26:58 Right, there is a higher
  • 27:01 accountability that we go to.
  • 27:03 There's a higher authority than the
  • 27:05 political authorities of this world.
  • 27:07 The kings of the earth rage against the King of Heaven
  • 27:10 but He laughs.
  • 27:11 And so we want to be worshipping the One-True-King
  • 27:14 as we see the day approaching.
  • 27:16 We always like to end our program by reminding you,
  • 27:19 Sha'a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:21 Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.
