  • 00:05 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,8);
  • 00:09 is that they might be saved,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,11);
  • 00:12 for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,14);
  • 00:15 for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,29);
  • 00:29 Shalom, Haverim Friends from the beautiful City of Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,32);
  • 00:33 I am David Hart.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,34);
  • 00:34 This is my wife Kirsten Hart,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,35);
  • 00:36 and we are excited about the plans
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,38);
  • 00:38 that we have for 2018.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,40);
  • 00:41 Some exciting things in store for you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,43);
  • 00:43 Zola Levitt was the pioneer, and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,45);
  • 00:45 he started almost 40 years ago.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,48);
  • 00:48 We promise you that we're going to continue
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,51);
  • 00:51 great Messianic teaching.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,54);
  • 00:54 Next week on Zola Levitt Presents
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,56);
  • 00:57 we will continue our encore series,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,58);
  • 00:59 "Esther, for Such a Time as This", with Dr. Jeffery Seif.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,62);
  • 01:03 Now, let's go take a look.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,126);
  • 02:07 The people of Israel live,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,129);
  • 02:10 not to say there are not forces bent
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,132);
  • 02:12 on trying to see that we don't,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,133);
  • 02:14 but we do.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,135);
  • 02:16 And the reason why we live is cause God lives.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,138);
  • 02:18 That's the reason why we sing a song,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,140);
  • 02:20 Jews that is, from here in Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,142);
  • 02:22 and all over the world,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,143);
  • 02:24 Am Yisrael Chai "The People of Israel Live"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,147);
  • 02:28 Well the story of the book of Esther
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,150);
  • 02:30 takes place against the backdrop of someone
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,152);
  • 02:33 endeavoring to see that we don't live.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,155);
  • 02:35 You can recall there's Haman,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,158);
  • 02:38 something of a wicked sort
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,160);
  • 02:40 bent on destroying the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,163);
  • 02:43 He hated Mordecai,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,165);
  • 02:45 and not just Mordecai,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,167);
  • 02:47 but by extension, all Jews everywhere,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,170);
  • 02:51 and he utilized his influence to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,173);
  • 02:54 enact a scheme to annihilate the Jews,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,178);
  • 02:59 and so dispatched from the capital of Shushan
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,181);
  • 03:02 were couriers that took messages
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,183);
  • 03:04 all over this vast Media Persian Empire,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,188);
  • 03:09 extending from India on the one hand
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,191);
  • 03:11 all the way to Ethiopia on the other.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,194);
  • 03:15 Jews were scattered about but it was decreed into law,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,199);
  • 03:19 that a day would be set aside to destroy the Jewish people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,204);
  • 03:25 Seems however that difficulties in the world aside,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,207);
  • 03:28 God always has His own.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,211);
  • 03:31 In the book of Esther we're told there was a fellow, Mordecai,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,214);
  • 03:35 who pushed his charge forward.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,217);
  • 03:38 Her name was Hadassah , in Hebrew,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,220);
  • 03:40 who not just because of her beauty,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,222);
  • 03:43 but because of an inner beauty,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,224);
  • 03:45 she had something a little extra,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,226);
  • 03:46 and she caught the attention of a King named Xeres.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,230);
  • 03:51 The net result is that she becomes Queen,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,233);
  • 03:53 and then when in the empire Haman enacts
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,237);
  • 03:57 his scheme to destroy the Jews,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,240);
  • 04:00 she's well placed to utilize her influence
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,243);
  • 04:03 to do something about it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,246);
  • 04:06 Oh, I'm reminded of when Mordecai petitions her,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,249);
  • 04:09 "Please dear, you have to",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,251);
  • 04:11 and she says, "I can't, I can't",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,252);
  • 04:13 but then, she's reminded that she had come into the kingdom
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,256);
  • 04:17 for such a time as this.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,260);
  • 04:21 As we wait for the day when your feet will split the Mount of Olives,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,266);

  • 05:53 One of the things so unique
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,354);
  • 05:55 to Zola Levitt Presents
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,356);
  • 05:56 is our dramatic reenactments
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,357);
  • 05:58 where we use authentic Israeli actors.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,361);
  • 06:02 And I just have to tell you that there's
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,363);
  • 06:03 no way that we could do this without your support
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,365);
  • 06:06 so we want to thank you for that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,367);
  • 06:07 We will also continue
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,368);
  • 06:09 to bring you Bible prophecy each week.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,372);
  • 06:13 A new series this year in 2018 is titled
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,376);
  • 06:16 "Watch Therefore"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,377);
  • 06:18 which is based in Matthew 24.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,380);
  • 06:20 Our Messianic teacher for this series is Dov Schwarz.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,384);
  • 06:24 He and his family live up in the Galilee,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,386);
  • 06:26 up in the northern part of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,388);
  • 06:29 and his family made Aliyah to this country
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,391);
  • 06:31 just a few years ago.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,392);
  • 06:33 David, would you read parts of Matthew 24 for us?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,395);
  • 06:36 We start at verse 36 where it says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,441);
  • 07:22 And now let's go to Dove with a preview
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,444);
  • 07:24 of this series, "Watch Therefore"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,449);
  • 07:29 Messiah, Jesus is speaking in Matthew 24.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,453);
  • 07:33 He's answering the questions of his disciples,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,455);
  • 07:36 What will be the sign of your coming in the end of the age,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,458);
  • 07:39 the Messianic age, when will that be,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,461);
  • 07:41 and what will the signs of that be?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,462);
  • 07:43 And the Lord talks to them about things like wars and rumors of wars,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,466);
  • 07:46 things that will happen down through the ages,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,468);
  • 07:48 that don't necessarily have anything to do
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,470);
  • 07:50 with the birth pains leading up to the birth of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,473);
  • 07:53 and the return of the Messiah, Jesus,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,475);
  • 07:55 but then there's a shift,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,476);
  • 07:57 there's a shift in Matthew 24 beginning in verse 7,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,481);
  • 08:01 "For nation will rise up against nation".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,483);
  • 08:03 You know really in Greek that says "ethnos",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,486);
  • 08:06 "ethnic" group will rise up against ethnic group,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,489);
  • 08:09 and kingdom against kingdom.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,490);
  • 08:11 And there will be famines, pestilences,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,493);
  • 08:13 and earthquakes in various places.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,495);
  • 08:15 All these are the beginning of birth pangs.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,498);
  • 08:18 Our Messiah Yeshua tells us in Matthew Chapter 24 that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,503);
  • 08:23 as it was in the days of Noah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,505);
  • 08:26 so will it be with the coming of the Son of Man.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,511);
  • 08:32 There are characteristics in Noah's day that can help us understand
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,517);
  • 08:38 the generation that will see the coming of the Son of Man.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,521);
  • 08:42 As this generation's characteristics will work in concert with
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,526);
  • 08:46 the birth pains and also the fig tree, Israel, blossoming.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,533);
  • 08:54 Israel, the fig tree, is blossoming all around us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,536);
  • 08:57 You may even hear the sounds of construction.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,539);
  • 09:00 Everywhere you go in Israel there's building and expansion.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,543);
  • 09:03 That's because we're the fig tree generation.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,545);
  • 09:05 And I spoke a little while about the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,547);
  • 09:07 generation being a hundred years.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,548);
  • 09:09 We find that out from the father of our faith, Father Abraham
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,552);
  • 09:13 in Genesis, chapter 15.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,555);
  • 09:15 And in Genesis 15 as we understand
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,558);
  • 09:18 that this is the fig tree generation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,561);
  • 09:22 we know that we need to be ready,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,564);
  • 09:24 because Messiah Yeshua told us,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,566);
  • 09:26 this generation will not pass away til all these things take place.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,569);
  • 09:30 What "all things"?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,572);
  • 09:33 All the trouble that is coming in the "Great Tribulation",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,576);
  • 09:36 and the coming of Messiah Yeshua to sit on the throne of David.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,579);
  • 09:40 The Messianic Age,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,580);
  • 09:41 this time is winding down folks.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,583);
  • 09:44 The world is the edge of World War III today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,588);
  • 09:49 Famine, there's more hungry people in this planet
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,590);
  • 09:51 than have ever been in the history of the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,594);
  • 09:54 Diseases, pestilences that often come from animals,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,597);
  • 09:58 "Bird Flu", "Pig Flu", HIV, AIDS,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,602);
  • 10:02 tuberculosis, malaria,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,604);
  • 10:04 and much, much more,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,605);
  • 10:06 the "Zika" virus that we're hearing so much about today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,608);
  • 10:08 Now the pestilences are like never before.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,610);
  • 10:11 I get this question, brother Perkins,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,612);
  • 10:12 how do you know that that Bible is the correct book?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,615);
  • 10:16 What about the Quran?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,617);
  • 10:17 What about the Book of Mormon?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,618);
  • 10:19 How do you know that Bible is the correct one?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,621);
  • 10:21 The way we know that is because of the prophetic Word.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,624);
  • 10:24 We have a Bible that's been written centuries old,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,628);
  • 10:28 but it's like reading a current day newspaper.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,631);
  • 10:31 You know, this proves to me the validity of this book,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,633);
  • 10:34 This Word of God is true.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,635);
  • 10:36 And again, as we see those indicators we know that it's true.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,639);
  • 10:39 We've got an uphill battle because we
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,641);
  • 10:41 live in a sound bite, Tweeting culture,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,645);
  • 10:46 but if we can encourage people to get back in the Word of God,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,649);
  • 10:50 it really does mold and shape you.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,651);
  • 10:52 The Bible is the "lamp to our feet and the light to our path.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,653);
  • 10:54 It's the only standard for our beliefs, attitudes and practices.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,656);
  • 10:57 It's the stake in the ground
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,659);
  • 10:59 in a very shifting world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,662);
  • 11:02 God said, Zechariah 14,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,664);
  • 11:04 as soon as the Jewish people accept the Messiah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,667);
  • 11:08 and say, Baruch haba b'shem Adonai
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,670);
  • 11:10 all the cursing in the earth will turn to blessing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,673);
  • 11:14 Can you imagine?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,675);
  • 11:15 Look at all the cursing,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,676);
  • 11:17 tornados and all that stuff.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,677);
  • 11:18 Everything is going to be turned to blessing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,680);
  • 11:21 We can't even imagine what that's going to be like,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,683);
  • 11:24 and it's key to the Jewish people accepting that Messiah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,686);
  • 11:27 and they're gathering in the Land,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,688);
  • 11:28 and that's where they're going to see Him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,690);
  • 11:31 He's waiting to return to Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,693);
  • 11:34 to build a Temple,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,696);
  • 11:36 a glorious new Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,698);
  • 11:38 You Can find it in Ezekiel 40 thru 48.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,702);
  • 11:42 And then He will enter into the Eastern Gate of that Temple.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,706);
  • 11:46 It's in Ezekiel 43,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,708);
  • 11:48 where the Prophet Ezekiel sees the Glory of Adonai
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,711);
  • 11:52 coming through the Eastern Gate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,714);
  • 11:54 And what does he then do?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,716);
  • 11:56 He sits upon His glorious throne,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,719);
  • 12:00 the Throne of David in Jerusalem.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,723);
  • 12:03 But later, the Apostle Paul is out with the Gospel in the nations,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,726);
  • 12:06 and he explains to the Thessalonians
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,728);
  • 12:09 and other the times and seasons,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,730);
  • 12:11 and he says this in I Thessalonians Chapter 5, he says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,733);
  • 12:14 that if you don't understand the season,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,736);
  • 12:17 and the generation of the Day of the Lord,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,739);
  • 12:19 that you'll walk in darkness,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,741);
  • 12:22 that you'll walk in darkness,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,743);
  • 12:23 so don't walk in darkness in this generation.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,746);
  • 12:26 King Yeshua is coming!
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,748);
  • 12:28 And we need to be ready.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,750);
  • 12:30 He says, Watch therefore and be ready.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,752);
  • 12:33 He repeats it in Matthew 24,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,754);
  • 12:35 Mark 13, Luke 21.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,757);
  • 12:38 He repeats, Watch therefore and be ready.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,759);
  • 12:39 Are you ready?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,761);
  • 12:41 Are you ready for the coming of our Great King?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,766);
  • 12:46 Thank you Dov for that message.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,767);
  • 12:48 We too anticipate the soon return of Christ.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,772);
  • 12:52 We are here on the Mount of Olives
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,775);
  • 12:55 where Yeshua, Jesus Himself soon will return once again.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,780);
  • 13:01 What an exciting event it will be.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,784);
  • 13:04 Also in 2018 we are bringing back Eitan Shishkoff
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,788);
  • 13:09 in a special encore presentation of "Called Together".
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,792);
  • 13:13 Eitan lives here in Israel and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,795);
  • 13:15 taught from right here in the Holy Land about
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,798);
  • 13:18 the 2 Olive Branches coming together,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,800);
  • 13:21 the Jew and the Gentile working in unison.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,804);
  • 13:25 Now, let's hear an excerpt.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,806);
  • 13:27 Here's Eitan Shishkoff.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,818);
  • 13:39 Olive oil was an essential commodity in biblical Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,822);
  • 13:43 and along with its many commercial uses
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,826);
  • 13:47 it was also, of course you know, as people literate in the Bible,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,831);
  • 13:51 it was used as the substance to anoint
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,834);
  • 13:54 prophets and priests and kings.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,837);
  • 13:57 But among those it was the Priesthood
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,839);
  • 14:00 that received really the most attention
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,841);
  • 14:02 in the early books of the Bible.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,843);
  • 14:04 I want to read to you from the book of Exodus
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,846);
  • 14:06 something that speaks of to me, of the heart
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,849);
  • 14:09 of what it means to be a Priest.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,850);
  • 14:11 Now, we have to separate,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,852);
  • 14:12 we're talking now about the Hebrew Priests in Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,855);
  • 14:16 not modern Priests of various Christian denominations.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,868);
  • 14:29 So this was that heavy breastplate
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,870);
  • 14:31 with the 12 stones that represented the Tribes of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,886);
  • 14:47 This is really the meaning of intercession,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,888);
  • 14:49 is we take the need of other people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,891);
  • 14:51 and we bring it before the Lord
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,892);
  • 14:53 in Priestly intercession.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,895);
  • 14:55 Welcome to Mount Moriah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,896);
  • 14:57 Welcome to Mount Zion.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,897);
  • 14:58 Welcome to the very closest wall we can get to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,900);
  • 15:00 to where the Temple stood.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,901);
  • 15:01 Jews and Gentiles from all nations are here,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,904);
  • 15:04 children, adults,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,905);
  • 15:05 they're putting their prayers on those papers,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,907);
  • 15:07 and they're putting them on that wall
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,908);
  • 15:09 because they believe that God will hear their prayer and answer it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,910);
  • 15:11 You know, it says in I Peter, Chapter 2,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,913);
  • 15:14 it says, I lay in Zion the Cornerstone,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,916);
  • 15:16 and it goes on,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,917);
  • 15:17 that Cornerstone that was rejected by the builders
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,919);
  • 15:19 has become the chief Cornerstone.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,921);
  • 15:21 And we're seeing people from Finland,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,922);
  • 15:23 people from Denmark,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,923);
  • 15:24 from U.S. Canada,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,925);
  • 15:25 everywhere, praying here because why?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,928);
  • 15:28 God placed His Name here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,930);
  • 15:30 There's very good teaching in the New Testament
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,932);
  • 15:32 as to why Christians, Gentiles who
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,934);
  • 15:35 accepted Jesus as the Messiah,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,937);
  • 15:37 how they should relate to the Jewish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,939);
  • 15:39 and the nation of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,940);
  • 15:41 First of all, they shouldn't be ignorant of the mystery,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,942);
  • 15:42 they shouldn't be arrogant towards them,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,943);
  • 15:44 they shouldn't think that they were removed from the tree so that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,946);
  • 15:47 Christians could replace them,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,948);
  • 15:48 or something like that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,949);
  • 15:50 Romans 11 is very clear
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,951);
  • 15:51 and it brings us to a place of mercy,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,952);
  • 15:53 that it's as if God has been waiting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,955);
  • 15:55 to see the fruit of the Gospel in the Gentiles,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,958);
  • 15:58 which is understanding that Israel has a gift
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,960);
  • 16:01 and calling that can never be revoked
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,962);
  • 16:03 which will result in life from the dead for the world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,964);
  • 16:05 There's an amazing chapter in the Old Testament
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,966);
  • 16:07 that gives us a very similar picture
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,968);
  • 16:09 and that's in Isaiah 49.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,970);
  • 16:10 Christians understand Isaiah 49 is speaking
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,972);
  • 16:13 about the Gospel going to the nations,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,975);
  • 16:15 and you get to verse 12
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,976);
  • 16:17 and it says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,981);
  • 16:21 Then Zion comes back into the picture and says,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,987);
  • 16:28 and then he goes on
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,988);
  • 16:29 as if he's proving to Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,990);
  • 16:31 establishing the case about his love for Israel that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,994);
  • 16:34 can never be forgotten,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,995);
  • 16:36 and how he will prove that to them,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,996);
  • 16:37 and how he says later on,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,997);
  • 16:38 I will raise my hand to the Gentiles...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1016);
  • 16:56 That is the promise there,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1017);
  • 16:58 and what is the call to the Gentiles there?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1019);
  • 16:59 It's a love that is unusual.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1021);
  • 17:01 My name is Estera Wieja
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1023);
  • 17:03 and I come from Poland.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1025);
  • 17:05 Already when I was living in Poland
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1027);
  • 17:07 I was studying the Scriptures,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1029);
  • 17:09 and as I was getting deeper into God's Word
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1032);
  • 17:12 I started discovering not only God's love
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1035);
  • 17:16 for the Jewish people,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1036);
  • 17:17 but also the holidays that Jews celebrate,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1039);
  • 17:19 and as I was reading the Bible I realize
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1042);
  • 17:22 that God calls those holidays "His Feasts",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1045);
  • 17:25 and so we started studying more and more
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1047);
  • 17:28 in our church and in our Bible Study,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1050);
  • 17:30 and somewhere in the process of that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1052);
  • 17:33 I felt like the Holy Spirit was telling me,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1054);
  • 17:35 "Now I want you to get to know my people.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1057);
  • 17:37 And so that was a clear message to me
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1059);
  • 17:40 that I need to come to Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1061);
  • 17:42 and get to know the Jewish people here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1064);
  • 17:45 There's something that's happening in our generation
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1067);
  • 17:47 that hasn't happened before,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1069);
  • 17:50 and that something is the completion of God's plan.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1074);
  • 17:54 Let me explain.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1075);
  • 17:56 It's only in this generation that there
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1077);
  • 17:58 have been thousands of Jewish people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1080);
  • 18:00 who've come to faith in Jesus, as Jews.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1083);
  • 18:04 Really until this generation,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1085);
  • 18:06 if a Jewish person wanted to believe in Jesus, that was fine,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1088);
  • 18:09 but he had to convert to Christianity.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1091);
  • 18:11 Now, what's really amazing an ironic is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1093);
  • 18:13 that in the 1st Century the question was exactly the reverse.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1096);
  • 18:16 I mean, these guys back in the book of Acts,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1098);
  • 18:19 they said, well we're not sure,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1100);
  • 18:21 can the Gentiles actually be saved
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1102);
  • 18:22 without converting to Judaism?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1104);
  • 18:24 They decided, yes.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1106);
  • 18:26 But in the 21st Century for many,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1108);
  • 18:29 the question is exactly the reverse,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1110);
  • 18:31 Can a Jewish person be saved and come to a knowledge of God
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1114);
  • 18:35 without converting to Christianity?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1116);
  • 18:37 Of course, I think my viewers know
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1119);
  • 18:40 that it all began in Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1122);
  • 18:42 but it's also going to end in Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1124);
  • 18:45 Yet, no one has been left out of God's story
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1128);
  • 18:48 as we've been speaking about in the previous weeks.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1131);
  • 18:52 What I want to emphasize, right now as we conclude,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1135);
  • 18:56 is that our friendship in the Lord is something
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1139);
  • 18:59 that causes a mutual humility,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1141);
  • 19:02 a mutual respect,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1143);
  • 19:03 a mutual appreciation,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1145);
  • 19:06 and by that, we demonstrate to the world that
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1148);
  • 19:09 Jesus really is the Messiah
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1150);
  • 19:10 because He did day, by the love that you have for one another
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1154);
  • 19:14 all of the world will know.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1157);

  • 20:22 how great a Zola Levitt Israel tour is.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1226);
  • 20:26 I have a highlight from this last tour we were on,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1228);
  • 20:29 where a couple brought their adult daughter to Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1232);
  • 20:33 And we were on the Sea of Galilee on the Jesus Boat,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1235);
  • 20:36 and as we were getting off,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1237);
  • 20:38 the mom and dad told me that their daughter accepted Yeshua.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1241);
  • 20:42 I was so excited about that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1244);

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1280);

  • 21:54 Zola Levitt Presents is a tool to evangelize to the unbeliever,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1317);
  • 21:58 and also to exhort the believer.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1320);
  • 22:00 In 2018 we will bring you a new series by Messianic Teacher, Marty Waldman,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1326);
  • 22:06 a series on the Book of Isaiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1328);
  • 22:09 Let's go to a preview right now.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1333);
  • 22:13 Here we are on the Mount of Olives,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1335);
  • 22:16 in the area somewhere of the Garden of Gethsemene
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1339);
  • 22:19 just across the valley
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1342);
  • 22:22 looking at the Eastern Wall and the Eastern Gate,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1345);
  • 22:25 and the Temple Mount, where the Temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1346);
  • 22:27 once stood and will stand again.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1349);
  • 22:30 I want to look a little bit more at the "remez", at the "hint"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1352);
  • 22:33 behind Isaiah's words in Isaiah 11,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1356);
  • 22:37 but foundationally what the Prophet is speaking about
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1362);
  • 22:42 is bringing the "Shoot of Jesse", the "Shoot of Yishai ",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1366);
  • 22:47 here's some shoots right here coming up from this olive tree,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1369);
  • 22:50 reviving the kingdom of David.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1374);
  • 22:54 But beyond that, He's speaking prophetically
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1377);
  • 22:58 about the coming of the Messiah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1379);
  • 22:59 King David has come and gone.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1382);
  • 23:02 Now, we're talking about one of his descendants,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1385);
  • 23:05 who will be the Messianic hope of Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1388);
  • 23:08 and the Deliverer ultimately of all the nations of the earth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1392);
  • 23:13 Continuing on from the steps which are behind me,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1395);
  • 23:16 the very steps that Yeshua walked as
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1399);
  • 23:19 he was being brought to trial at Caiaphas' house.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1402);
  • 23:22 We're looking at Isaiah 53,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1404);
  • 23:25 having discussed Isaiah's prophetic word
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1407);
  • 23:28 about the Messiah's death,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1410);
  • 23:30 about His suffering,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1411);
  • 23:32 and now, about His Resurrection.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1415);
  • 23:35 Look, Isaiah 53 was written
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1417);
  • 23:38 700 years before Yeshua was even born.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1421);
  • 23:41 That's what makes these words so profound and so prophetic.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1425);
  • 23:45 In Isaiah Chapter 40, verse 5, we read...
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1433);
  • 23:54 This "Glory", this "Glory of the Lord being revealed",
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1436);
  • 23:57 is something that has been hidden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1438);
  • 23:59 In fact, this Hebrew word "revealed" is also found in
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1442);
  • 24:02 Deuteronomy, Chapter 29, verse 29
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1444);
  • 24:05 where it says...
