Caption transcript for Close Encounters with Yeshua: “God is Coming” (1/10)

  • 00:01 Hi, I'm David Hart.
  • 00:02 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:03 Welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:05 We're excited to be a part of this first series
  • 00:08 "Close Encounters with Yeshua".
  • 00:09 Myles will be on location teaching
  • 00:12 in the Judean wilderness
  • 00:14 between Jerusalem and Jericho.
  • 00:16 We'll also have a reenactment with an Israeli actor
  • 00:18 And an interview with Israeli believers
  • 00:21 that run the Aliyah Return Center.
  • 00:25 Stay with us.
  • 00:34 It was not long ago our first encounter
  • 00:36 on the waters of the Galilee.
  • 00:38 My hand is completely restored.
  • 00:41 He said, Your faith has saved you.
  • 00:44 I've heard Yeshua speak in our synagogue.
  • 00:48 He talked about the Kingdom of God.
  • 00:51 Then He showed us His wounds in His hands and His feet.
  • 00:54 I believe He really is a King.
  • 01:07 Shalom Haverim, Hello Friends
  • 01:09 and welcome to our program.
  • 01:10 I'm Myles Weiss.
  • 01:12 And I'm Katharine Weiss.
  • 01:13 And we want to welcome you to our new series
  • 01:15 "Close Encounters with Yeshua.
  • 01:16 We bring you into the life of Yeshua as a Jewish man.
  • 01:20 Yeah, this is so great to contextualize Him,
  • 01:22 to realize that He is the Jewish Messiah
  • 01:24 and the Savior of the World
  • 01:26 and to really help our viewers
  • 01:28 and help whoever sees this to understand
  • 01:30 that Christianity came from somewhere.
  • 01:32 Yes
  • 01:33 That's been a theme for this program for over 30 years.
  • 01:35 Christianity through Jewish eyes - Right?
  • 01:37 Yes.
  • 01:39 And it was so awakening for you when you saw the Scriptures
  • 01:41 that the whole life of Jesus was a Jewish man.
  • 01:44 It was stunning, life changing obviously.
  • 01:47 But really I remember feeling like
  • 01:49 Why didn't my Rabbi tell me this - What Happened?.
  • 01:51 Where was the idea that this
  • 01:52 is absolutely a Jewish story
  • 01:55 and that God in His grace has opened
  • 01:57 the Gospel to the whole world?
  • 01:58 Right - so we'll also take you to hear from people in the Land
  • 02:01 and how they're journey coming to know their Messiah
  • 02:04 and how they overcame the same things that you did Myles.
  • 02:07 Yeah, well it's not overcoming our own sin
  • 02:09 but truthfully the sins of the Church,
  • 02:12 the historical Church which has been persecutory to the Jewish people.
  • 02:16 So it's a great stumbling block for our people.
  • 02:18 But the good news in this program and in this series
  • 02:21 we're going to see close encounters with Yeshua
  • 02:24 both at the time of Jesus
  • 02:26 through biblical reenactments
  • 02:27 and also living testimonies from today.
  • 02:29 So let's begin with our first drama.
  • 02:41 His name is Zacharias.
  • 02:45 He's a Priest in a Temple like me.
  • 02:48 He burns incense on the Holy Altar.
  • 02:54 I'm not sure what to think of it.
  • 02:57 They tell me, one day he was visited by an Angel who stood by the altar
  • 03:01 and told him he would father a child.
  • 03:05 He's an old man and his wife Elizabeth
  • 03:10 she's well past such notions.
  • 03:14 But it happened.
  • 03:18 They bore a child
  • 03:22 and named him "Yochanan" - "John"
  • 03:26 Not exactly a family name
  • 03:29 but apparently given to him by the Angel well before his birth.
  • 03:36 On the 8th day they came to circumcise the child.
  • 03:39 Zecharias prophesied.
  • 03:42 He said the Lord God of Israel
  • 03:45 has visited His people and granted "redemption" - "gahula",
  • 03:53 said his son would go ahead of the one who's yet to come,
  • 04:00 a "Deliverer" from the House of David,
  • 04:06 a Savior.
  • 04:13 It's a promise
  • 04:16 given to us long ago
  • 04:19 by Abraham
  • 04:21 and our Fathers.
  • 04:29 I pray it is so.
  • 04:36 More than ever we welcome Him
  • 04:40 Mashiach
  • 04:43 The Anointed One
  • 05:01 Some people have always believed in
  • 05:02 the promises that are in this Book.
  • 05:05 Some people have believed
  • 05:06 before the Book was written.
  • 05:08 We're here in the desert,
  • 05:09 desert Midbar,
  • 05:11 one of the root words for the word to speak.
  • 05:14 And it's here that God speaks.
  • 05:16 It's here in the loneliness,
  • 05:18 in the solitude and the quiet
  • 05:20 that the God of all creation spoke,
  • 05:23 called Abraham from here.
  • 05:25 Think about what this place means to God.
  • 05:27 It's a place where we become dependant on Him.
  • 05:31 This isn't like in Egypt where there's a
  • 05:33 giant Nile River to overflow and create crops.
  • 05:36 Here life moves forward by God's protection,
  • 05:40 by God's anointing,
  • 05:42 by God's covering
  • 05:43 and His provision.
  • 05:44 This is a place of testing,
  • 05:46 a place of proving.
  • 05:48 This is a place where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
  • 05:51 came up from to go into the Promised Land.
  • 05:55 When you think about the desert
  • 05:57 you think about the harsh conditions.
  • 05:59 It's brutal during the day
  • 06:01 and it's cold at night.
  • 06:02 And without the protection of God
  • 06:04 and a cloud during the day to keep you cool,
  • 06:07 a pillar of fire at night to keep you warm
  • 06:10 like He did with Moses and the children of Israel in the wilderness.
  • 06:13 Without that provision from God.
  • 06:15 Without water from a rock.
  • 06:17 Without Him guiding you into
  • 06:19 the ability to live in a place like this.
  • 06:22 To come through this we cannot make it.
  • 06:24 This is where we learn dependence on God.
  • 06:27 This is where we learn that what is written in here
  • 06:31 is in fact true, prophetic and is coming true in our lives.
  • 06:35 It's coming true in our day.
  • 06:37 We are in an exciting time right now.
  • 06:39 This entire series is about the power of Yeshua
  • 06:42 the reality of the supernatural act of God
  • 06:46 intervening in man's life
  • 06:48 by becoming a Savior,
  • 06:50 by becoming a provision,
  • 06:52 by becoming the One who brings protection
  • 06:55 in life and through all eternity.
  • 06:58 Out here you can almost sense Abraham traveling up to the Land.
  • 07:04 You can sense Isaac and Jacob coming through this place.
  • 07:07 Moses with the children of Israel.
  • 07:10 And it's a place where Joshua walked with Moses before he took the land.
  • 07:17 A type of Yeshua taking back the earth for Himself.
  • 07:20 John was out in the wilderness calling people to repentance.
  • 07:24 And Yeshua Himself driven into the wilderness by the Spirit in order
  • 07:29 to be tested 40 days and 40 nights,
  • 07:32 a parallel with Moses who went up on the mountain
  • 07:34 for 40 days and 40 nights.
  • 07:36 Cause God was fulfilling His Scripture in Deuteronomy 18:[18]
  • 07:47 That prophet, that provision, the Priest,
  • 07:51 that King to come is Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Jesus of Nazareth.
  • 07:56 Good news today that many, many more Jewish people
  • 07:59 are understanding that He is in fact our Messiah.
  • 08:03 We're coming closer to Him.
  • 08:05 It's in a place like this that we realize that we
  • 08:08 need to listen, to hear Him speak
  • 08:11 and to know that our dependence is not a bad thing.
  • 08:14 Our dependence is a necessary thing.
  • 08:16 We like to be self-sufficient
  • 08:19 especially in the modern world.
  • 08:21 We like to feel like we are in charge of things,
  • 08:22 we are in control of things,
  • 08:24 we've got it all figured out.
  • 08:25 But the reality is when you go down deep enough,
  • 08:28 when you come out to a place like this
  • 08:29 you realize how small you are
  • 08:32 and how dependant you are on the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
  • 08:37 We're praying that throughout this series
  • 08:40 you're going to have an experience of the words of Jesus,
  • 08:42 the calling of Jesus,
  • 08:44 and the future that He wants to create for you,
  • 08:47 a life now abundantly
  • 08:49 and a life with Him eternally.
  • 08:51 So let's draw near to Yeshua.
  • 08:53 Let's have a close encounter with Yeshua.

  • 09:33 A 9 part series on 3 DVDs
  • 09:37 "Sons of Israel"
  • 09:40 Hi, my name is Belinda Moon
  • 09:42 and I'm a 2nd generation contributor
  • 09:44 to Zola Levitt Ministries.
  • 09:46 My parents supported the ministry.
  • 09:48 And I found it when Myles and Katharine came on board.
  • 09:51 Through their teaching
  • 09:53 I have learned a lot about the Bible
  • 09:55 and why it's important for me to stand with Israel.
  • 09:58 Please join me in supporting this ministry.
  • 10:08 It's amazing that in our day
  • 10:10 people believe all kinds of things about
  • 10:12 the supernatural,
  • 10:14 about darkness,
  • 10:15 about aliens.
  • 10:17 And yet they have the hardest time believing in the supernatural
  • 10:19 birth, death and resurrection of Yeshua Ha Mashiach.
  • 10:24 And yet that is the story of God.
  • 10:26 It's a love story from start to finish.
  • 10:28 It begins with a wedding in the Garden
  • 10:30 and it ends with a wedding that's to come
  • 10:32 between the Bridegroom of heaven
  • 10:34 and those that say "yes" to Him.
  • 10:35 And the desert is a place to say "yes".
  • 10:38 It was in a desert like this that
  • 10:40 Abraham said "yes" and took upon himself
  • 10:43 the Covenant that God made for him with him
  • 10:46 which was to covenant with the descendents
  • 10:51 of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose name is Israel
  • 10:54 to have the Land of Promise
  • 10:56 and to bring forth the Messiah of Promise.
  • 10:59 In Genesis 3:15 we see the battle between Light and darkness
  • 11:04 as God says to the serpent - He warns him
  • 11:19 That's speaking of the Cross,
  • 11:22 the execution stake,
  • 11:24 the tree upon which Yeshua would be sacrificed.
  • 11:28 No man took His life.
  • 11:29 He laid it down for you and for me.
  • 11:32 It was my sin that put Him there
  • 11:34 and yours as well.
  • 11:36 I remember before I came to faith
  • 11:38 I didn't even believe in sin.
  • 11:39 It's pretty funny looking back now.
  • 11:41 Cause I know I am a sinner who needs a Holy God to touch him.
  • 11:47 In Matthew 1:1 in the Brit Hadashah, the New Covenant,
  • 11:51 prophesied by Jeremiah in Chapter 31,
  • 11:58 The writing says,
  • 11:59 [Speaking Hebrew]
  • 12:10 And that's the story about how salvation
  • 12:13 came through a certain family,
  • 12:15 came through a certain line.
  • 12:16 There were promises made to Moses,
  • 12:19 promises made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses,
  • 12:21 to all of the tribes of Israel.
  • 12:24 In fact, to the Tribe of Judah
  • 12:26 that it would be from the Tribe of Judah
  • 12:28 which is where David is from.
  • 12:31 From the seed of David that Messiah would come.
  • 12:33 It's all laid out in this Book
  • 12:34 but it's supernaturally orchestrated by God.
  • 12:37 There's no way that man can make this happen.
  • 12:41 There's no way that it could be coincidence.
  • 12:43 There's no way that it's possible
  • 12:45 for the events of these 66 books which are cohesive
  • 12:49 and make one story stretched over thousands of years
  • 12:52 that they could hold together
  • 12:54 accept for the reality of a supernatural God
  • 12:57 intervening in the life of man.
  • 13:00 The promise to King David was that there would
  • 13:03 always be someone to rule on his throne.
  • 13:06 How is that possible?
  • 13:07 Kings come and go, people die.
  • 13:10 But what if a King came who was from eternity?
  • 13:14 What if a King came for example out of David's home town Bethlehem
  • 13:17 as Micah said in Chapter 5:2?
  • 13:29 What if the prophets were right and
  • 13:33 the story was written and it was set
  • 13:35 and Yeshua was going to come from the Tribe of Judah
  • 13:39 from the line of David,
  • 13:40 from the City of David
  • 13:42 to come and be Salvation for you and for me?
  • 13:45 That's what this series is about.
  • 13:49 We're looking for our close encounters with Yeshua.
  • 13:52 We're looking to grow in our understanding
  • 13:54 that He is in fact the Promised Seed,
  • 13:57 the Promised Messiah.
  • 13:58 And He's looking for a relationship with you.
  • 14:00 The desert is about dependence and relationship.
  • 14:04 Come on out to the desert with us
  • 14:06 and have an encounter with Yeshua.
  • 14:41 For more information on our next tour to Israel call:
  • 14:50 We would love to host you
  • 14:51 on a Pilgrimage to Israel.
  • 14:53 There's nothing like it in the world.
  • 14:55 Everybody that comes with us
  • 14:57 raves about our tours
  • 14:59 because you really see the Bible come alive.
  • 15:01 And it's just life changing.
  • 15:02 So we want to invite you to come with us
  • 15:04 in Spring or in Fall.
  • 15:05 Call 1-800-WONDERS
  • 15:07 Go to levitt.com
  • 15:08 And go to the Land that belongs to God.
  • 15:10 Absolutely,
  • 15:12 Go to the places where God has made covenant with man.
  • 15:15 And He is continuing to keep His covenant with the Land itself.
  • 15:18 It's blooming in these days
  • 15:20 and we want to show you God's miraculous
  • 15:22 rebirth of the Land of Israel.
  • 15:24 You know it's been said that
  • 15:26 the sound of the shofar is
  • 15:27 the sound of God's provision.
  • 15:30 In Genesis 22 God provided a ram.
  • 15:34 And it is the same for us today.
  • 15:36 He is the God of provision.
  • 15:39 So let's go now to the Judean desert
  • 15:41 and hear the sound of the shofar.
  • 15:45 [Myles blowing the shofar]
  • 15:54 The sound of the shofar goes back to Genesis 22
  • 15:57 when Abraham and Isaac walked through a place like this
  • 16:00 and went up to the mountains of Israel.
  • 16:04 It was where God Himself provided the scapegoat
  • 16:07 to take Isaac's place.
  • 16:09 There's so much promise in the Word of God.
  • 16:12 But also only God can bring His Word to pass.
  • 16:16 Man cannot do it.
  • 16:18 Abraham was promised in Genesis 12
  • 16:21 that he would be the father of many.
  • 16:24 And in his own self
  • 16:25 and in Sarah's own strength
  • 16:27 they could not bring that promise to pass.
  • 16:29 Only God could provide the seed
  • 16:33 that would bring the promise
  • 16:35 of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • 16:37 And in that promise Abraham was willing
  • 16:40 to let it all go because God said,
  • 16:42 Would you come up in a journey and
  • 16:45 worship me on the mountain.
  • 16:47 And would you be willing to give me
  • 16:49 the very best of your life.
  • 16:51 And that is your son.
  • 16:52 And he was willing.
  • 16:54 But there was a voice from heaven.
  • 16:55 It was an Angel.
  • 16:56 And we'll hear time and time again as
  • 16:58 we have close encounters with Yeshua in this series.
  • 17:02 Close encounters with God that is the Angel of the Lord that speaks.
  • 17:06 It's the Angel of the Lord or Yeshua Himself
  • 17:09 that reveals the way of salvation.
  • 17:11 And it was the ram in the thicket.
  • 17:14 That is where the shofar is born.
  • 17:17 You know the provision that God makes is
  • 17:20 such a picture of what would come in the future
  • 17:22 because we couldn't be saved by the blood of Isaac.
  • 17:26 It had to be supernatural blood that came from above.
  • 17:29 Their life is in the blood
  • 17:31 Scripture tells us.
  • 17:32 And it has to be like kind.
  • 17:34 So God Himself had to come
  • 17:36 through the line of Abraham to
  • 17:38 become the Promised Messiah
  • 17:40 and to go to the cross for and for me.
  • 17:42 You know one thing about the desert
  • 17:43 reminds me a lot about the story of Ruth.
  • 17:46 I like the...
  • 17:48 what's happening now in the world.
  • 17:49 There's so much of what is called inter-marriage
  • 17:52 but it really is the coming together
  • 17:54 of the Gentiles and the Jews
  • 17:55 to find the House of Bread together.
  • 17:57 There's a great story in this
  • 17:59 where the coming up from the desert again
  • 18:01 and looking for the House of Bread,
  • 18:03 looking for sustenance
  • 18:05 and finding it in the Promised Land.
  • 18:07 And it was Ruth the Gentile Moabitess
  • 18:09 who was outside the Covenant
  • 18:11 who came in and knitted herself
  • 18:13 to the Covenant of Abraham,
  • 18:15 to the Covenant of Israel
  • 18:16 and brought Naomi into the Promised Land.
  • 18:18 Together they found Boaz, the Lord of the harvest.
  • 18:21 I love how she had her close encounter
  • 18:24 with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
  • 18:26 She said, Your people shall be my people, your God my God.
  • 18:30 Where you go I will go.
  • 18:32 And we know that God is calling many of you, our viewers
  • 18:35 to have that same wedding with the Land and the people that
  • 18:39 God has planned to give this Land.
  • 18:41 You know it's the Land of Promise.
  • 18:43 It's not a land of ease.
  • 18:45 There has to be a plan.
  • 18:46 And it is His plan of promise
  • 18:48 and He Himself will bring it to pass.
  • 18:50 It's so humorous in a sense, it's so ironic that
  • 18:53 there's such a struggle over the Land of Israel.
  • 18:55 The Land of Israel in its current form
  • 18:57 is a fraction of the promise that was made to Abraham
  • 19:00 because in Genesis 17
  • 19:02 He tells Abraham to look up and see
  • 19:04 everywhere his eyes could see from the
  • 19:07 River Euphrates to the Great River in Egypt the River Nile.
  • 19:10 That's a much bigger promise
  • 19:12 than what we're currently battling over.
  • 19:14 But the Land Covenant is part of the story.
  • 19:17 In this series, "Close Encounters with Yeshua"
  • 19:20 we're going to see the promise to the Land,
  • 19:22 the promise to the people,
  • 19:24 and this new thing that God is doing in the earth
  • 19:27 of bringing Christians into a loving relationship with Israel
  • 19:30 and then calling us together to become His Bride.
  • 19:34 And that's where we're headed,
  • 19:35 to a wedding in the sky.
  • 19:46 We love the story of Ruth
  • 19:48 how that pictures the Jews and Gentiles
  • 19:50 together going into the Land
  • 19:52 and worshipping God together.
  • 19:53 We see that today.
  • 19:54 We see the Land being restored,
  • 19:56 the people coming back.
  • 19:57 And we even see it into heaven.
  • 19:58 In Revelation 19 where the Bride, made up of the Jews and Gentles,
  • 20:02 has made herself ready.
  • 20:03 Absolutely
  • 20:04 There's a company of people, of Gentile believers that are
  • 20:07 reading the Scriptures and seeing that it's
  • 20:09 our job to comfort the people.
  • 20:11 It says in Isaiah 40 "Comfort Ye, Comfort Ye, Comfort Ye My People.
  • 20:16 And one of the ways we comfort the people of Israel
  • 20:19 is to see them brought back into the Land of God's promise for them.
  • 20:23 Myles interviews a father and son team up in the Galilee.
  • 20:27 Let's go now and hear from them.
  • 20:31 One of our biggest projects is certainly
  • 20:33 helping the Jewish people home.
  • 20:35 And that begins with helping the Church understand its role.
  • 20:37 And so how do they interact with the Jews in their own communities?
  • 20:41 How can they do it from a relational standpoint so that
  • 20:44 they can be with those same Jews
  • 20:46 who ultimately will make their return to the Land of Israel?
  • 20:50 Bringing the Russian Jews home, it was one thing.
  • 20:53 You know, you paid off their debts,
  • 20:55 you helped them with their paperwork,
  • 20:57 you got them on our bus to the airport,
  • 20:59 and the Jewish agency took over and brought them home.
  • 21:02 Working with North American Jews,
  • 21:03 they're not bringing 2 bags home.
  • 21:05 Some of them are bringing 2 containers home.
  • 21:07 And when they get here how do we work with them here?
  • 21:10 We bring them up to the Galilee to a place called the Aliyah Return Center.
  • 21:15 There we want to give them vacations.
  • 21:17 We want them to interact with Christians
  • 21:19 at a place where there's a reflection of unconditional love.
  • 21:24 You might call it like the Green Hilton.
  • 21:27 It's a Hotel, a Guest House which gives free stay
  • 21:30 as well as regular international guests,
  • 21:33 world changing intercessors, etc.
  • 21:35 Also, it gives and matchmakes between
  • 21:38 Jewish people who are returning and making their home here...
  • 21:42 We give them their first home in the nation,
  • 21:44 and then help them find a permanent home.
  • 21:46 And we do that up here in the Galilee.
  • 21:49 We provide for some of the new "Olim" that are coming back.
  • 21:52 I'm working with my son-in-law.
  • 21:54 I was at a worship evening and I met this girl
  • 21:57 who is so enthralled with the restoration of Israel,
  • 22:00 the return and the restoration of Israel,
  • 22:02 that she said, I'm just in love with God's plans.
  • 22:05 And I said, are you Jewish?
  • 22:06 And she says, No I'm not but I love the Jewish people.
  • 22:09 And I was a soldier in the Army having seen
  • 22:11 divine protection over my life at that time.
  • 22:13 And I told her some of this.
  • 22:15 We ended up falling in love.
  • 22:16 And the ministry she was a part of
  • 22:18 was called "Return Ministries"
  • 22:19 And they helped Jewish people return
  • 22:21 along with other ministries,
  • 22:23 helped them to return here to Israel.
  • 22:24 But as I said, we need to help them get absorbed
  • 22:27 integrated, attached, acclimated, acculturated,
  • 22:31 all these nice words.
  • 22:33 Pretty much, get their roots to go deep in the soil of Israel
  • 22:35 and not to be uprooted.
  • 22:37 Amos 9, says they will no longer be pulled out of the Land that I've given them.
  • 22:41 So we said, How can we do that?
  • 22:43 And we thought of this idea,
  • 22:44 my father-in-law and myself.
  • 22:46 We have found that the last words of Jesus before He ascended were,
  • 22:56 I don't believe those Words are rescinded.
  • 22:58 And yet going into Judea and Samaria is not the popular thing to do.
  • 23:01 So what we like to do is take our new olim into Judea and Samaria.
  • 23:05 We want them to see Elon Moreh.
  • 23:07 We want them to know where Abraham first worshipped.
  • 23:10 We want them to know where the Ark stood for 369 and a half years.
  • 23:14 We want them to know where Jacob had a dream on a hard rock and
  • 23:18 woke up and said, Hey this is an awesome Place.
  • 23:20 We want them to know that where 80% of their Bible comes from is
  • 23:26 a place that we together whether we're Jew or non-Jew
  • 23:29 need to stand together before so much pressure
  • 23:33 that's coming from the nations.
  • 23:34 Right now the biggest and most ground breaking thing
  • 23:37 that I've ever heard of in Israel
  • 23:39 is that the Jewish Agency of Israel,
  • 23:41 friend of Netanyahu our Prime Minister,
  • 23:43 has signed an agreement to work with us fully and
  • 23:47 completely as partners in developing a huge kibbutz
  • 23:50 that was deserted right here in the Jordan Valley.
  • 23:53 You know what Ezekiel says about the Jordan Valley
  • 23:56 but I specifically like Ezekiel 36 verse 24
  • 24:08 And I feel that I'm a part of that as a believer and this
  • 24:11 is just I think the first fruits of the rest of the harvest.
  • 24:16 I'd like you to look directly at the camera
  • 24:18 and bring a word, a prayer request
  • 24:20 or anything you'd like our viewers
  • 24:23 to know about or pray for.
  • 24:25 I want to call you to understand the era in which we live
  • 24:31 in where there is an Israel, when there is a liberated Jerusalem.
  • 24:34 And what is our role as Gentiles cooperating
  • 24:38 with what God is doing in this hour.
  • 24:41 Brothers and Sisters, family from all over the world
  • 24:45 I want to ask you to number one pray
  • 24:47 for God's restoration plans and the fulfillment
  • 24:50 of 700 prophecies of the Jews coming back home.
  • 24:55 Join with us.
  • 24:57 Come and see for yourself what God is doing.
  • 24:59 Come and become a return member with us.
  • 25:02 It's just pretty much helping sponsor
  • 25:04 another Jewish family while you yourself
  • 25:06 are there with them meeting them.
  • 25:08 And lastly, come volunteer.
  • 25:10 But don't wait too long because
  • 25:12 God's prophesies are being fulfilled
  • 25:13 right now in and through us
  • 25:15 and it's an adventure.
  • 25:16 So let's have an adventure together.

  • 25:44 We love Chaim's videos
  • 25:46 on this ministry's Facebook Page.
  • 25:49 He's funny,
  • 25:50 he's insightful
  • 25:51 and I promise you will not be bored
  • 25:53 watching his videos.
  • 25:55 He and his adorable family
  • 25:56 made Aliyah from America
  • 25:59 and now they live up in the Galilee area.
  • 26:01 Our son made Aliyah
  • 26:05 in a sense, not officially.
  • 26:07 We're Galileans.
  • 26:08 Well, he moved to Jerusalem
  • 26:10 just this past August and he is working with the
  • 26:13 International Christian Embassy.
  • 26:16 So he is busy there helping people himself
  • 26:19 make Aliyah.
  • 26:20 And it's just amazing to see
  • 26:22 what is happening in the Holy Land.
  • 26:24 People are coming.
  • 26:25 They're coming from the North, South, East and the West
  • 26:29 to move back to God's Country.
  • 26:31 That's right.
  • 26:31 We were just with our son.
  • 26:33 And it was amazing to us to see him
  • 26:35 walking in the same steps that Jesus, Yeshua has walked.
  • 26:39 And it's just amazing to watch his life.
  • 26:42 It's wonderful.
  • 26:43 Now, social media is an important part of this ministry.
  • 26:46 Didn't you just start a Twitter Page?

  • 26:50 that I am new at Twitter.
