Series: “Called Together”
This series focuses on how gentile Christians are beginning to recognize their Messianic brothers and sisters (Jewish believers in Jesus/Yeshua) as the “natural olive branch.” The Lord calls us to work together to bring the Messiah especially to the House of Israel. From the studio, David and Kirsten Hart present these eight programs that feature on-location Bible teaching from “Our Man in Haifa” Eitan Shishkoff, reports from Chaim Malespin, and Hebrew lessons from Diana Frenkel. Guest analyst Dr. Jeffrey Seif helps us apply these teachings to our lives.
Episode: “Intersection of Covenants”
Passover and Communion represent the intersection of the Covenants of God, breaking down the wall that divides Jewish and gentile Believers. Our friendship leads to mutual respect and appreciation as we work toward the final harvest as one family. Israeli Nir Lavi wonders why Christian tourists volunteer to work in his vineyard. Chaim and a Filipino Believer explain that Christians coming to help Israeli Jews fulfills a prophecy as the final harvest approaches. Messianic Caroline Hyde sings “Va-Yeh-He Or.”

Caption transcript for Called Together: “Intersection of Covenants” (8/8)

  • 00:05 Brethren, my hearts desire and prayer to God for Israel
  • 00:09 is that they might be saved
  • 00:12 for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek
  • 00:14 for the same Lord over all
  • 00:16 is rich unto all that call upon Him.
  • 00:36 Shalom and Hello everyone.
  • 00:38 I'm David Hart.
  • 00:39 Welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:40 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:42 This is the last program in
  • 00:44 our series "Called Together"
  • 00:46 I think it's been one of my favorites so far.
  • 00:48 The teaching has been incredible.
  • 00:50 It's been really, really wonderful.
  • 00:52 I've just got to say,
  • 00:53 I know we have been talking
  • 00:54 about the series so much at home
  • 00:56 on our couch, around our dining room table.
  • 00:59 This has been a great one for us
  • 01:01 as two Gentile Believers.
  • 01:03 Where do we fit?
  • 01:05 And I think the word that comes to mind
  • 01:08 when I think about this whole series "Called Together"
  • 01:11 has been "relationships".
  • 01:13 That's right.
  • 01:14 I've been reminded,
  • 01:15 I think we've been reminded
  • 01:16 that all celebrate the intersection of the Covenants of God.
  • 01:19 It's not the Old Testament people
  • 01:21 or the New Testament people.
  • 01:23 We are One people together
  • 01:25 to usher in the coming of Yeshua.
  • 01:29 Today on our program Chaim will be back.
  • 01:31 But right now let's go to Eitan.
  • 01:39 In an unrehearsed moment many years ago,
  • 01:41 I found myself inviting a German pastor
  • 01:44 to come and hold the cup of the Lord with me
  • 01:46 as I served communion, the Messiah's Supper,
  • 01:49 to our congregation here in here in Israel.
  • 01:52 I don't even know why I invited him.
  • 01:53 It was just something intuitive.
  • 01:55 But when Hans joined me and he held the cup together with me
  • 01:59 something inside my heart just exploded
  • 02:03 and I realized that here was this man,
  • 02:05 a German, with me, a Jew
  • 02:08 and yet felt even closer to him
  • 02:11 than even my blood relatives who do not know the Messiah.
  • 02:16 I felt a brotherhood between us that we had been joined by
  • 02:20 the blood of Messiah and by His sacrificial love.
  • 02:24 This was not the first time that the reality of communion had changed my life.
  • 02:29 In fact, when I read as a young believer the story of the Last Supper
  • 02:34 it was then in the New Testament
  • 02:37 that I really discovered what it meant to be Jewish.
  • 02:40 That's right.
  • 02:41 I was born Jewish but not really raised with the traditions of our people.
  • 02:44 And it was in that moment when Jesus lifted the cup, He lifted the Matza and
  • 02:49 He said, "This is my body, this is my blood"
  • 02:52 and He was speaking to the disciples but
  • 02:55 suddenly I realized it was in the context of the Passover meal.
  • 02:59 What that did was it put all of the Bible together for me.
  • 03:04 I felt that I was at the intersection of the Covenants of God.
  • 03:09 One thing that's really important about Passover for us to remember is,
  • 03:13 Passover is a time of intimate friendship of delight, of joy.
  • 03:19 And you know what?
  • 03:20 This is really what God has called us together to embrace and to celebrate
  • 03:25 as Jewish and Gentile followers of the Messiah
  • 03:28 just as I embraced that German Pastor that day
  • 03:31 is the friendship that God gives to us.
  • 03:35 You see?
  • 03:36 He's broken down any wall of division
  • 03:39 and He's brought us together.
  • 03:41 He's brought us together in the blood of the Messiah Yeshua
  • 03:44 the blood that was shed for us on the cross.
  • 03:47 And this transcends every difference
  • 03:51 and makes it possible for us to walk together
  • 03:54 in a way that now, in the last days
  • 03:56 we are going to be empowered,
  • 03:59 we're going to be able to bring the love of God
  • 04:02 both to Israel and to the nations.
  • 04:17 We are starting to see the walls fall
  • 04:19 as Jewish people and Christians come together.
  • 04:22 And one of those ways is shown by
  • 04:25 volunteers coming to Israel
  • 04:27 to show their love to the Jewish people.
  • 04:29 Here's Chaim with more on that.
  • 04:37 Here we are in Judea and Samaria
  • 04:39 the Heartland of Israel.
  • 04:40 The media calls it the "West Bank".
  • 04:42 We're actually on top of the famous biblical mountain
  • 04:45 Mount Gerizim.
  • 04:47 Which is where the blessings were pronounced
  • 04:48 on the children of Israel as they
  • 04:50 came and made Aliyah ,
  • 04:51 their immigration to Israel.
  • 04:53 I'm here with my dear friend Nir Lavi.
  • 04:56 He's the owner of the prestigious Har Bracha Winery.
  • 04:59 And I understand that Christians
  • 05:02 have been helping and showing love
  • 05:04 here - in this place.
  • 05:06 What do you have to say about that?
  • 05:08 It's a phenomenon.
  • 05:09 And I can't talk for all of the Land of Israel.
  • 05:13 Of course tourists,
  • 05:14 they are here in Israel from way back in time
  • 05:17 in the Dead Sea, in Eilat, in Massada.
  • 05:20 But me as a tourist farmer also that
  • 05:23 hosts tourist people and people that are coming
  • 05:25 and their hearts are for the Land,
  • 05:27 because I'm in a special place in a special area.
  • 05:30 And I've seen this happen for the last 20 years.
  • 05:33 People are coming to the mountain,
  • 05:35 to Mt. Gerizim from all around the world,
  • 05:37 fellow Christians.
  • 05:39 I'm not going into beliefs.
  • 05:41 I'm just talking as an Israeli modern Orthodox Jew that
  • 05:46 supports the world's love for Israel.
  • 05:49 These people are coming without me inviting them.
  • 05:55 They're coming to taste wines.
  • 05:57 They're coming to work the Land,
  • 05:59 to put their hands in the Land of Israel,
  • 06:01 to give us a warm shoulder
  • 06:04 working the Land together, volunteering.
  • 06:07 And it's all about that.
  • 06:08 We're doing vineyards.
  • 06:10 We're doing Olives.
  • 06:11 There's times and seasons in the year
  • 06:14 planting, fencing.
  • 06:15 And we see them coming and we see them just
  • 06:18 coming to the end of the ridge here,
  • 06:19 the overlook of Joseph's Tomb
  • 06:21 and relating to that.
  • 06:23 So I'm asking myself the same question about
  • 06:25 people coming here from all around the world.
  • 06:27 What's so interesting for them to come?
  • 06:30 And as an Orthodox Jew do you feel that really
  • 06:33 these Christians showing a constant love
  • 06:36 is really opening even your heart
  • 06:38 and you're realizing that there are not
  • 06:40 only Christians that say the love,
  • 06:42 but they love in deed and in action.
  • 06:44 Yes, yes, of course.
  • 06:45 If my grandparents in Europe in the mid dark ages
  • 06:49 were rundown by Christians.
  • 06:52 And we're talking about a long time ago with the Crusades.
  • 06:55 But today we're in a new era.
  • 06:57 We're after WWII
  • 06:59 and we're after the Holocaust
  • 07:01 and we're already reviving the Land
  • 07:04 and back in the Heartland of Israel.
  • 07:06 And things occur in that fashion.
  • 07:09 People are opening up their hearts.
  • 07:12 They're not talking with me about their Christianity
  • 07:14 like I'm not talking to them about my Judaism.
  • 07:17 But we're relating as friends as a whole human being
  • 07:20 that has a head, shoulders, legs and a heart.
  • 07:24 And it's all together and
  • 07:26 we feel very, very related.
  • 07:28 And we're adding up friends and friends.
  • 07:30 In fact, this week I had my South African friend here
  • 07:34 from a Christian Church in South Africa.
  • 07:36 It his 22nd time visiting Israel.
  • 07:40 And you know, it's a privilege for us Israelis
  • 07:42 to get a bit of understanding
  • 07:45 of what is happening in the Christian world.
  • 07:47 You know?
  • 07:49 Let's continue to shine the love
  • 07:50 as true followers of the God of Israel.
  • 07:57 David - Now let's go back to Haifa
  • 07:58 for more teaching from Eitan.
  • 08:02 As we know, the Feast of Passover is not just fruit of the vine and matza.
  • 08:08 There's also lamb, and bitter herbs and really
  • 08:12 it's a whole extended Feast that takes really quite a bit of time
  • 08:16 by the time you pray and worship the Lord
  • 08:19 through all of the different facets of the story of our Exodus.
  • 08:24 And what this speaks to me about is the fact that God has used food as an
  • 08:31 emblem and as a portion of Covenant really all through the Bible.
  • 08:35 In fact, we remember that Abraham had a meal that
  • 08:40 actually in a pre-incarnation appearance
  • 08:44 it seems that the Lord in human form ate a feast with Abraham at his tent.
  • 08:51 What happened to me in Kansas City one day
  • 08:54 was, okay, not exactly like Abraham and the Lord,
  • 08:58 but, with a brother named Phil, we had an amazing barbeque meal
  • 09:04 and as I sat with Phil and took the first bite
  • 09:09 suddenly I just had to stop.
  • 09:12 I realized that the flavor of our food and looking at this brother with a love
  • 09:19 and our conversation was deep about the things of the Lord,
  • 09:22 it was true fellowship.
  • 09:24 This is really the theme that I'm wanting to share with you
  • 09:28 through all of these different portions
  • 09:30 of what we've been talking about,
  • 09:32 is covenant friendship.
  • 09:34 I felt it in that moment that God was saying,
  • 09:36 Hey, you guys are my sons, I love you, I want to bless you.
  • 09:40 Here's some abundance.
  • 09:41 Here's good flavor.
  • 09:42 Here's an incredible experience of closeness
  • 09:46 that your souls are linked by My love.
  • 09:50 And that brings us full circle back to Solomon and Hiram,
  • 09:53 these two kings that we spoke about at the beginning.
  • 09:56 Because it was their friendship that had enabled them
  • 09:59 to cooperate and build the Temple together in Jerusalem.
  • 10:03 The first Temple... that's right,
  • 10:04 was built by a Jewish king and a Gentile king.
  • 10:08 And it came about through their friendship.
  • 10:11 As a result, the Temple became what I call
  • 10:14 "a landing strip for the Glory of God"
  • 10:17 because the cloud of God's Glory descended.
  • 10:21 Brothers and sisters this is what God wants to do
  • 10:24 in our friendship as Jews and Gentiles together
  • 10:27 is to bring His Glory to this earth.
  • 10:30 And as we experience true friendship and
  • 10:33 true fellowship together often around meals!
  • 10:36 It's not abstract.
  • 10:38 It's something very real.
  • 10:40 It's something very concrete.
  • 10:42 The God of the Universe created us to enjoy life.
  • 10:46 Let's enjoy it together.
  • 10:48 And let's reflect the beauty of the Kingdom of our Messiah.
  • 10:54 Kirsten and I in our last 27 years of our marriage,
  • 10:57 we have had the opportunity and the privilege to
  • 11:00 minister in many denominations.
  • 11:02 And there's been a lot of differences
  • 11:04 that we've seen in those organizations.
  • 11:06 There are.
  • 11:07 And there are also so many differences
  • 11:09 between a Messianic congregation and a
  • 11:11 Christian Gentile congregation.
  • 11:13 But the thing that binds us all together
  • 11:15 is we all have a love for the God of Israel.
  • 11:20 And we have got to fellowship together.
  • 11:24 That's right.
  • 11:25 We'll be right back.
  • 11:28 Our Resource this week is the series,
  • 11:30 "Called Together"
  • 11:32 "Jew & Gentile One in Messiah" on DVD.
  • 11:36 David and Kirsten Hart present the Teachings
  • 11:38 of Eitan Shishkoff.
  • 11:40 These 8 programs show
  • 11:42 how both sides of the Body of Messiah
  • 11:44 are grafted together.
  • 11:46 We also have interviews,
  • 11:48 Location Reports,
  • 11:49 Hebrew Lessons
  • 11:50 and Music.
  • 11:52 When you contact us ask for
  • 11:54 "Called Together" on DVD
  • 11:59 If your thinking about visiting the Holy Land
  • 12:01 come on a Zola Tour
  • 12:03 where the Scriptures come to life
  • 12:05 as you get teaching from a Messianic perspective.
  • 12:08 Our Spring Tour goes to:
  • 12:11 In the Fall you can add a cruise of:
  • 12:15 Come to Israel.
  • 12:17 See the Jewish roots of your Faith.
  • 12:30 Here's a question for you.
  • 12:31 Have you heard that voice saying
  • 12:32 come on a Zola Levitt Tour?
  • 12:34 I promise you that you will love it.
  • 12:36 It will change your life.
  • 12:38 We are going to be leading Praise and Worship
  • 12:41 everywhere we go
  • 12:42 both in the Fall and the Spring
  • 12:44 as we tour there.
  • 12:45 One of the best things about a Zola Tour
  • 12:48 is the fact that we have Messianic Teachers
  • 12:51 on the whole tour.
  • 12:53 Yes.
  • 12:54 And if you go to Israel
  • 12:55 you need the Jewish perspective
  • 12:57 or your take aways won't be the same.
  • 13:00 Now one of my favorite parts is the...
  • 13:01 I know what it is!
  • 13:02 What?
  • 13:03 The food!
  • 13:04 It is!
  • 13:05 I've got to tell you.
  • 13:06 We were in Israel for 18 days.
  • 13:08 And I mean I ate...
  • 13:10 I had a lot of pita, a lot of humus.
  • 13:12 And I ate at the dessert table for every meal.
  • 13:14 And I only gained 3 pounds!
  • 13:17 So it's miraculous.
  • 13:18 That's right.
  • 13:19 Let's go to Chaim now at the Aliyah Return Center.
  • 13:31 Oh, that's amazing
  • 13:33 Let's do it.
  • 13:34 Of the many buildings here
  • 13:35 at the Aliyah Return Center Village
  • 13:36 this one really excites me
  • 13:38 because with this government sanction program with the
  • 13:40 Jewish agency and the Aliyah Return Center
  • 13:43 we are going to be housing
  • 13:44 25 Arab Christians and 25 Jewish people in the same building.
  • 13:48 Let's go survey the work ahead of us.
  • 13:55 Wonderful.
  • 13:57 What we're seeing here
  • 14:00 is not only a great act of love
  • 14:04 to really put in new windows,
  • 14:06 new drywall, outlets,
  • 14:07 new sinks
  • 14:09 to really help these Arabs and Jews as they're
  • 14:11 going to be living here.
  • 14:12 I mean this whole place,
  • 14:14 this desolation will be transformed.
  • 14:16 I see it as a fulfillment of
  • 14:17 an ancient dream by our Creator
  • 14:20 to bring in a practical way
  • 14:22 Jew and Gentile together.
  • 14:24 And I see that found in Isaiah 61 in a practical way.
  • 14:27 Verse 4...
  • 14:36 This is talking about a people that once were not God's people
  • 14:39 but now are, in a prophetic alliance.
  • 14:42 And I cannot believe the unconditional love
  • 14:44 that we're seeing in uncompromising faith
  • 14:47 for a One New Man friendship.
  • 14:55 Isaiah 14:1 says it clearly,
  • 14:57 "The Lord will bring them back
  • 14:58 to settle once again in their own Land.
  • 15:01 And people from many nations will
  • 15:02 come and join them there
  • 15:04 and unite with the people of Israel."
  • 15:06 That's exactly what's happening
  • 15:08 at the Aliyah Return Center
  • 15:09 in Galilee, Israel.
  • 15:10 We invite you to partner with us
  • 15:12 in helping to renovate this abandoned boarding school
  • 15:15 into a place where Jewish people from around the world
  • 15:17 will be welcomed home.
  • 15:24 Let's work together for Israel
  • 15:26 and witness the fulfillment
  • 15:28 of Isaiah's prophecy.
  • 15:35 What is your name?
  • 15:36 Where are you from?
  • 15:38 And where did this overwhelming love for Israel come from?
  • 15:40 Okay, so my name is Thea
  • 15:42 and I'm from the Philippines.
  • 15:45 My love for Israel started all the way back when I was young
  • 15:49 because of Albert Einstein.
  • 15:50 He's an amazing Physicist
  • 15:52 and he is one of my heroes in physics.
  • 15:53 So, like 4 years ago
  • 15:56 I came here to volunteer with the Christian Embassy
  • 15:58 for the Feast of Tabernacles.
  • 16:00 And there was this very distinct moment
  • 16:02 that I had during the Jerusalem March.
  • 16:04 And so I was walking and I could really feel
  • 16:07 the reconciliation between the Christians and the Jewish people.
  • 16:10 And knowing the horrible history that we had
  • 16:13 I was overwhelmed with that acceptance.
  • 16:16 And I knew, I was so sure that the Lord was at work.
  • 16:19 So that was an amazing experience.
  • 16:21 And a few days before I left
  • 16:24 for the Philippines to go home
  • 16:26 I was reading the Book of Isaiah in Chapter 60 until
  • 16:29 the end, until Chapter 66
  • 16:31 and it's amazing!
  • 16:32 Because what's written there
  • 16:34 is that it talks about the role or the foreigner
  • 16:35 and the future glory of Israel,
  • 16:37 the role of watchmen,
  • 16:38 the future of the nations
  • 16:39 and what's going to be the future, you know?
  • 16:41 And it's an amazing section of the Bible
  • 16:42 because it talks about the vision
  • 16:45 that the Lord has cast for the people to understand.
  • 16:47 What is their hope.
  • 16:48 Because this is the future that the Lord has for us.
  • 16:50 And the Word of God is true.
  • 16:52 And there's a verse there that really struck me
  • 16:54 that says,
  • 16:57 Talking about the future of Israel
  • 16:59 and I knew I had a role
  • 17:00 as a foreigner in the Land of Israel.
  • 17:02 So keeping that in my heart
  • 17:04 when I had an opportunity to come here to volunteer
  • 17:07 for long term in the Christian Embassy
  • 17:10 that the Gaza War.
  • 17:12 And there was in 2014.
  • 17:14 And I knew that because of the war
  • 17:16 they're not going to let the... come.
  • 17:19 So the Lord was impressing my heart
  • 17:22 that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
  • 17:25 And I knew that it was my turn.
  • 17:26 So that's why I came and I'm here.
  • 17:29 David - Now let's go back to Eitan
  • 17:31 as he wraps up this week's teaching.
  • 17:35 Isn't it incredible that we actually have a script for our lives.
  • 17:39 It's called "The Word of God".
  • 17:41 And in the book of Acts which was taking place
  • 17:44 of course 20 centuries ago in the 1st Century,
  • 17:48 the early Jewish disciples of Yeshua knew from even Chapter 3
  • 17:54 that Yeshua had to remain in heaven until the restoration of all things.
  • 17:59 There's something that's happening in our generation that hasn't happened before.
  • 18:03 And that something is the completion of God's plan.
  • 18:09 Let me explain.
  • 18:10 It's only in this generation that there had been
  • 18:13 thousands of Jewish people who've come to faith in Jesus as Jews.
  • 18:18 Really until this generation, if a Jewish person wanted to believe in Jesus that was fine
  • 18:23 but he had to convert to Christianity.
  • 18:25 Now what's really amazing and ironic
  • 18:27 is that in the 1st Century the question was exactly the reverse.
  • 18:31 I mean these guys back in the book of Acts,
  • 18:33 they said, "Well, we're not sure."
  • 18:35 "Can the Gentiles actually be saved without converting to Judaism?"
  • 18:38 They decided, yes.
  • 18:40 But in the 21st Century for many the question is exactly the reverse.
  • 18:45 "Can a Jewish person be saved and come to a knowledge of God
  • 18:49 without converting to Christianity?"
  • 18:51 Of course I think my viewers know that it all began in Israel.
  • 18:56 But it's also going to end in Israel.
  • 18:59 Yet no one has been left out of God's story
  • 19:02 as we've been speaking about in the previous weeks.
  • 19:06 What I want to emphasize right now as we conclude
  • 19:10 is that our friendship in the Lord is something
  • 19:14 that causes a mutual humility, a mutual respect, a mutual appreciation.
  • 19:20 And by that we demonstrate to the world that Jesus really is the Messiah
  • 19:25 because He did say that by the love you have for one another
  • 19:29 all the world will know.
  • 19:31 Now I want to invite you to join me in these times of opposition and opportunity
  • 19:35 because, yes, persecution will come again as it did in the 1st Century
  • 19:40 but we have a harvest in front of us and
  • 19:42 it's harvest workers that the Lord is looking for
  • 19:45 because He said,
  • 19:53 And I'm praying that we will both be sent together into this final harvest
  • 19:57 and receive the Lord, as One Family.
  • 20:00 I love you,
  • 20:01 I appreciate you,
  • 20:03 And it's been wonderful to be together to speak about these things.
  • 20:15 We have absolutely loved the teaching
  • 20:17 in this great series with Eitan Shishkoff
  • 20:21 and also... I can't believe it's time to end this series
  • 20:25 Noooo!
  • 20:26 with Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 20:28 Not yet!
  • 20:29 It's been fun to be back.
  • 20:30 And to be back with you guys.
  • 20:31 You guys are a hoot!
  • 20:32 How do you tie it all together
  • 20:34 from what we've been taught from you?
  • 20:35 Well, it's all about together
  • 20:38 It is.
  • 20:39 at the end of the day.
  • 20:40 That is so intrinsic to Zola Levitt Ministries,
  • 20:42 Jews and Gentiles together.
  • 20:43 It's so much the teaching over these weeks.
  • 20:46 It's so much the heart of God.
  • 20:48 Our eyes have been opened a lot about our role as Gentiles.
  • 20:52 Totally and I feel as if we,
  • 20:55 and this is our world is the Christian Evangelical world.
  • 20:59 We are missing out so much.
  • 21:01 We don't have any Jewish people around.
  • 21:03 And that's not the way God ordained it to be.
  • 21:05 Other than Jesus.
  • 21:06 Right!
  • 21:07 When we open up the Bible we have Jewish people around
  • 21:09 because these are the authors
  • 21:10 and this was the world.
  • 21:12 And step by step people are waking up to it.
  • 21:14 The thing to do now is to
  • 21:15 establish partnerships,
  • 21:17 relationship,
  • 21:19 fellowship.
  • 21:20 There's a whole lot of "shipping" going on.
  • 21:21 Courtship, relationship,
  • 21:23 internship, partnership.
  • 21:24 The shipping - we're supposed
  • 21:26 to be a bunch of fellows in the same ship.
  • 21:28 Maybe rowing together and
  • 21:30 that's what this series is about.
  • 21:32 That is the heart...
  • 21:33 That was Zola Levitt years ago.
  • 21:35 That's been Zola Levitt Ministries.
  • 21:36 That's the Zola Levitt Ministries I knew when I was at the helm.
  • 21:40 And that's your ship to steer.
  • 21:42 And it will never change.
  • 21:43 That's our heart too.
  • 21:44 I don't think we're doing that yet
  • 21:46 in the Christian denomination.
  • 21:48 Is there more we could do as a church?
  • 21:50 I think so.
  • 21:51 To reach out to our Jewish friends.
  • 21:52 To rediscover our Jewish roots.
  • 21:54 To be more involved in Israel.
  • 21:56 Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
  • 21:57 Sadly in some Christian denominations
  • 22:00 people are anti-Jewish, anti-Israel.
  • 22:03 Go figure.
  • 22:04 I don't get it.
  • 22:04 Right.
  • 22:05 I don't get it,
  • 22:06 how you can spend 6 days a week...
  • 22:07 When you read from the Bible
  • 22:10 you read from Jews,
  • 22:11 you worship Jews,
  • 22:12 but then you hate Jews.
  • 22:13 Because - Jesus, Yeshua
  • 22:16 he was white with blue eyes and he
  • 22:19 spoke with a British accent.
  • 22:20 We think he was white and non-Jewish.
  • 22:23 How did that happen?
  • 22:24 Well listen.
  • 22:25 I think it's better to light candles
  • 22:27 than it is to curse the darkness.
  • 22:30 There really is a problem
  • 22:32 with this re-imaging Jesus in the image of a host culture.
  • 22:35 We want to get back to the original.
  • 22:37 And that's why me, you, we, this,
  • 22:42 our viewers that support us.
  • 22:44 We're about "This Little Light of Mine
  • 22:46 I'm going to let it Shine".
  • 22:48 We know we got some truth here.
  • 22:49 And what we want to do
  • 22:51 is many of our Christian friends don't understand
  • 22:53 that's why this ministry needs to exist.
  • 22:57 Revival.
  • 22:58 And if I can speak to you direct,
  • 22:59 that's why I want you to help it exist.
  • 23:02 That's right.
  • 23:03 Keep it going.
  • 23:04 We have to!
  • 23:05 It's prophecy.
  • 23:07 And people are so into the prophetic.
  • 23:09 They're so into reading the signs and what's happening.
  • 23:13 Relationship with Jewish people and the Gentile Church
  • 23:17 is the prophetic.
  • 23:18 I know for us when we're there,
  • 23:21 when we're in Israel
  • 23:22 and it's not because our son lives there,
  • 23:24 but we don't want to come back to the United States.
  • 23:26 We feel like we're home.
  • 23:27 You know Zola said years ago that
  • 23:29 one trip to Israel is worth 10 years of Sunday School.
  • 23:32 Good point, yeah?
  • 23:33 I think you'll learn more than you will in Sunday School.
  • 23:35 Yes...Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes.
  • 23:37 So, thank you so much.
  • 23:40 We have learned from you.
  • 23:41 We have fellowship with you.
  • 23:43 Thank you so much.
  • 23:44 And thanks for carrying on.
  • 23:45 That's our hope and desire.
  • 23:47 Thank you.
  • 23:48 And now here's a song
  • 23:49 from Carolyn Hyde in Israel.
  • 23:59 [Singing in Hebrew]
  • 26:02 Carolyn, thank you so much for sharing your gift of song.
  • 26:06 We are musicians
  • 26:07 and we love hearing you.
  • 26:10 How in the world are we at the end?
  • 26:13 I know it.
  • 26:14 I can't believe it.
  • 26:15 We're tying up our last segment
  • 26:17 of the last "Called Together".

  • 26:29 From this whole series.
  • 26:31 Life!
  • 26:32 Oooh, that's a good one!
  • 26:34 I think mine would be...
  • 26:36 and we did, we talked about life.
  • 26:38 I think mine is "Relationship"
  • 26:41 We need to have relationships
  • 26:44 with those outside our normal walls.
  • 26:47 We need to reach to the Messianic Congregations,
  • 26:50 and some of you are watching,
  • 26:52 to our Jewish brothers and sisters.
  • 26:54 That is prophecy in action.
  • 26:57 And that's what Zola Levitt Presents is all about.
  • 26:59 That's right.
  • 27:00 We learned some Hebrew
  • 27:01 and I hope you did too.
  • 27:02 Let's see if we can do one of them.
  • 27:04 What's your favorite?
