Caption transcript for Watch Therefore and Be Ready: “Curse-for-Curse Principle” (5/8)

  • 00:05 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel 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 is rich unto all that call upon Him.
  • 00:38 Hi Friends, I'm David Hart,
  • 00:40 Welcome to our series "Watch Therefore",
  • 00:42 on Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:44 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:45 We are continuing our series on Bible Prophecy,
  • 00:48 and how we need to live expectant of our Savior's return.
  • 00:53 Dov Schwarz will be on location,
  • 00:55 as well as Chaim Malespin.
  • 00:57 We'll have our weekly Hebrew Lesson,
  • 01:00 and Dr. Mark Hitchcock will be right at this desk.
  • 01:03 Today we will be discussing the flip side of the
  • 01:06 promise that God made to Abraham.
  • 01:09 Yes, we love to concentrate on
  • 01:11 the "blessing for blessing",
  • 01:13 but there's also the "curse for curse" part.
  • 01:15 Now let's go to Dov Schwarz
  • 01:17 in Israel for our teaching.
  • 01:25 We're here in Israel in an Arab Village.
  • 01:29 And behind me is a Mosque.
  • 01:32 Islam is expanding in Israel and in the nations of the world.
  • 01:37 There's a Bible Verse that more than ever we should understand today
  • 01:40 that will help us to understand what's going on in the news.
  • 01:44 In Genesis 12, as the Lord
  • 01:47 is giving Abraham the promises of that Covenant,
  • 01:51 He says,
  • 01:59 It really helps us to understand the Hebrew in this Passage
  • 02:03 and it gives it a bigger punch.
  • 02:06 We know this Covenant the Lord made with Abraham
  • 02:08 was passed to Isaac,
  • 02:10 Isaac to Jacob.
  • 02:11 Jacob's name changed to "Israel".
  • 02:13 In the Hebrew, speaking of the Lord cursing,
  • 02:17 the word is " Arur "; it means "to obliterate".
  • 02:20 "I will obliterate those who " kalel " you."
  • 02:25 The word " kalel " in other passages, for example with King David,
  • 02:30 speaks of "esteeming lightly",
  • 02:33 "to esteem lightly".
  • 02:39 WOW! ... WOW!
  • 02:41 Now there's a principle called
  • 02:44 "the curse for curse principle"
  • 02:46 and I'm going to introduce that to you.
  • 02:48 And as we go forward together in this program
  • 02:53 I'm confident you'll see WOW, this is affecting the whole earth today.
  • 02:59 The "curse for curse principle"
  • 03:02 Here's a question.
  • 03:04 With regard to Pharaoh as he was assassinating, killing Israeli baby boys in Egypt
  • 03:12 how was he doing it?
  • 03:14 By drowning them in the Nile River.
  • 03:18 Here's a question for you.
  • 03:19 What happened to Pharaoh's Army?
  • 03:22 They were drowned in the Red Sea.
  • 03:25 That's "curse for curse".
  • 03:28 The "curse for curse principle"
  • 03:31 Now, do we see that pattern continuing in the Bible?
  • 03:33 We do!... We do!
  • 03:36 Here's another example.
  • 03:37 Daniel, righteous Daniel prayed to the Lord every day.
  • 03:41 And he had enemies in Persia and they wanted to destroy him.
  • 03:47 But they couldn't find any fault in him except for how he would follow his God.
  • 03:53 And so they cooked up a plan
  • 03:57 and had him thrown into a lion's den.
  • 03:59 Here's my question.
  • 04:01 Did the lions eat Daniel?
  • 04:03 No
  • 04:04 But who did they eat?
  • 04:06 Daniel's accusers and their families.
  • 04:08 Curse for curse
  • 04:11 Pharaoh and the Israeli babies,
  • 04:13 Curse for curse
  • 04:16 "I will curse him who curses you, or esteems you lightly."
  • 04:21 We'll continue and see this unfold through the Scriptures
  • 04:26 and then, even into modern day life today.
  • 04:30 We'll be right back.
  • 04:37 We stand behind the Jewish people.
  • 04:39 That doesn't mean we have to agree with everything
  • 04:41 that's done within the politics of Israel,
  • 04:43 but the reason why I support Israel
  • 04:44 is because God tells me to.
  • 04:46 That's the principle we find in Genesis 12:3,
  • 04:49 "I'll bless those who bless you"
  • 04:51 "and I will curse those who curse you."
  • 04:52 Ancient empires had to find that out the hard way.
  • 04:55 We're talking, the Egyptian Empire, the Assyrian Empire,
  • 04:58 the Babylonian Empire, the Medo-Persia Empire,
  • 05:00 the Grecian Empire, the Roman Empire.
  • 05:02 We could go on and on and on.
  • 05:04 Even modern day despots had to find out the hard way,
  • 05:06 like Saddam Hussein, and so on and so forth.
  • 05:09 Blessing of Israel, you get the blessing of God.
  • 05:11 Cursing the Jews you're asking for serious trouble.
  • 05:13 And these Arab nations today,
  • 05:15 and all the enemies of Israel for that matter, collectively
  • 05:17 are asking for serious trouble
  • 05:20 when they come up against the God of Israel.
  • 05:30 The God of Israel always wants us to support
  • 05:33 His, Abraham's, descendant line people,
  • 05:37 the Jewish people.
  • 05:39 And someone always helping the Jewish people
  • 05:41 is our friend, Chaim Malespin.
  • 05:43 Let's go to Israel right now
  • 05:45 and hear from Chaim on location.
  • 05:53 WOW! ancient Israeli pottery shards
  • 05:56 here in the West Bank.
  • 05:58 Yeah, here in Judea and Samaria.
  • 06:00 Do you know this title deed of ownership
  • 06:03 of the inheritance God has promised
  • 06:05 is being discovered everywhere?
  • 06:07 Excavations are happening
  • 06:10 approved by the Israel land authorities.
  • 06:12 Even people from all over the nations are
  • 06:14 coming to help uncover the truth
  • 06:16 of where the Tabernacle stood,
  • 06:18 where synagogues,
  • 06:20 and just really life,
  • 06:22 and the truth of God's promise.
  • 06:24 Now I want to say that the devil isn't happy
  • 06:28 when God's Word is fulfilled. Amen?
  • 06:31 Right now we realize that this Land is a disputed Land.
  • 06:34 I remember when I first started to come here
  • 06:36 I said, why after 3,500 years of history,
  • 06:40 is this place no more uncovered, more developed?
  • 06:42 Well, because it's disputed.
  • 06:44 I can think off the top of my head, of 5 different disputes.
  • 06:47 Economic, Academic Theological
  • 06:50 Military, Political disputes.
  • 06:52 Yeah, even Boycotts.
  • 06:54 Even in universities narratives and changing of histories.
  • 06:59 We have even in congregations there's disputes, churches,
  • 07:04 and we know about the political disputes
  • 07:09 that happen when any house is built
  • 07:11 in fulfillment with the promise that they would
  • 07:13 return and rebuild their houses, replant their vineyards,
  • 07:16 and we know the military disputes that happen, Hamas, Fatah.
  • 07:20 But I'm just here to say, that when God fulfills His Word it's amazing.
  • 07:24 When it says in Jeremiah chapter 31, verse 5,
  • 07:34 We're standing in Judea and Samaria
  • 07:36 on the mountains of Samaria.
  • 07:38 Right behind me are vineyards.
  • 07:39 These are producing award winning wines around the world.
  • 07:43 The children of Israel are returning.
  • 07:45 Rachael's children, who she mourned for, are returning,
  • 07:49 and God is pleased.
  • 07:51 Let's stand with the Word of God.
  • 08:00 Are Gentile believers meant to adopt the Mosaic Law?
  • 08:03 Is there a separate salvation covenant for Israel that
  • 08:06 removes the necessity of faith in Yeshua?
  • 08:08 Eitan Shishkoff tackles these questions and more
  • 08:11 in today's resource, "What About Us?"
  • 08:14 In this book, Eitan uncovers concrete
  • 08:17 Scriptural evidence of God's original plan
  • 08:20 for Jews and Gentiles to become one in Messiah,
  • 08:23 and work together for salvation of National Israel.
  • 08:27 Learn the importance of how the Gentile Church should relate
  • 08:29 to the remarkable Messianic movement of Jews accepting Jesus.
  • 08:34 An important read for believers of all walks of life.
  • 08:37 Please call us or go online
  • 08:38 and ask for the Resource "What About Us?"
  • 08:43 We live in a topsy turvy world
  • 08:44 where news events are sometimes twisted,
  • 08:47 often leading to untruth.
  • 08:49 Here at Zola Levitt Presents we believe its important
  • 08:52 to tell the truth of God's Word, the Bible,
  • 08:56 and we believe it should be proclaimed to Israel and the Nations.
  • 09:00 If you believe the same way please consider us in your monthly giving support.
  • 09:05 Thank you.
  • 09:13 We can always use your support to
  • 09:15 keep going to Israel to bring
  • 09:17 such great teaching to you.
  • 09:19 For example, we want to take you now to Israel for Dov Schwarz.
  • 09:23 He'll be teaching in an Arab village.
  • 09:26 Now let's go to Dov with more on Genesis 12.
  • 09:36 We're standing here today in this Arab Village in Israel.
  • 09:41 In front of this mosque you hear their prayers to the false god Allah.
  • 09:48 And you'll see with the "curse for curse principle"
  • 09:51 that this is an anti-Christ, anti-Israel spirit.
  • 09:55 And we'll see why it's covering the earth today.
  • 09:58 Now I spoke about Pharaoh and the Israeli baby boys "curse for curse"
  • 10:02 and Daniel's and his accusers.
  • 10:04 I'll share another one with you.
  • 10:05 Remember righteous Mordecai.
  • 10:07 Righteous Mordecai was hated by wicked Haman.
  • 10:11 So wicked Haman had a gallows built for righteous Mordecai.
  • 10:15 Here's my question.
  • 10:17 Did righteous Mordecai go to the gallows?
  • 10:20 No, Haman and his ten sons went to the gallows.
  • 10:24 "Curse for curse"
  • 10:26 I'm going to begin now to bring this into modern times.
  • 10:29 Into modern times, okay?
  • 10:31 But with the Nazis, with the Nazis...
  • 10:35 I got to tell you the Jews are the "canary in the coal mine" folks.
  • 10:39 You know what a "canary in a coal mine" is.
  • 10:40 The coal miners, they would take that canary
  • 10:42 sitting on its perch in a cage
  • 10:44 down into the coal mine
  • 10:45 so that if there was a methane gas leak
  • 10:48 that canary would hit the bottom of that cage dead,
  • 10:50 they knew it's time to "get out of Dodge",
  • 10:52 get out of the coal mine.
  • 10:53 Right?
  • 10:54 Well so it is with the Jews.
  • 10:56 When you see this attack on the Jewish people,
  • 10:59 this curse coming against the Jewish people,
  • 11:01 know that curse is coming back at those who are cursing them.
  • 11:06 "Curse for curse"
  • 11:09 So with the Nazis as I began to explain a moment ago.
  • 11:11 That was just fine with some of the people in the world
  • 11:13 when the Nazis were just killing those Jews.
  • 11:15 Here's my question.
  • 11:17 Did it stay localized to the Jewish people?
  • 11:19 No.
  • 11:20 Nazism covered the earth.
  • 11:22 And so many millions of people perished.
  • 11:26 Why?
  • 11:27 Because the Jewish people are the "canary in the coal mine".
  • 11:31 As it goes with the Jews,
  • 11:33 as it goes with Israel,
  • 11:35 as those who come against Israel and the Jewish people do so
  • 11:39 they can know it's going to come back on them much worse.
  • 11:43 Why?
  • 11:44 Because the "curse for curse principle" is
  • 11:49 Those who curse Israel will be cursed a whole bunch worse.
  • 11:54 And that's what we're seeing in the world today.
  • 11:56 Now, why are we standing here in front of a mosque?
  • 11:59 How does this pertain to the "curse for curse principle"?
  • 12:02 Well when we come back in a moment I'm going to share this with you.
  • 12:05 But know this,
  • 12:07 as you turn on the TV today,
  • 12:09 as every nation in the world is experiencing,
  • 12:12 we're going to see this unfolding right in our lives today
  • 12:18 all over the world.
  • 12:19 The experience of the "curse for curse principle",
  • 12:23 it's sweeping the earth.
  • 12:25 Don't go away.
  • 12:26 This next segment is going to be so important
  • 12:30 and it affects you right where you live today, alright?
  • 12:34 And you know what it makes me want to do?
  • 12:35 Guess.
  • 12:36 That's right.
  • 12:37 "Watch therefore".
  • 12:39 Makes me want to watch for the coming of Messiah Yeshua.
  • 12:42 It makes me want to be ready.
  • 13:38 Are Gentile believers meant to adopt the Mosaic Law?
  • 13:41 Is there a separate salvation covenant for Israel that
  • 13:44 removes the necessity of faith in Yeshua?
  • 13:46 Eitan Shishkoff tackles these questions and more
  • 13:49 in today's resource, "What About Us?"
  • 13:52 In this book, Eitan uncovers concrete
  • 13:55 Scriptural evidence of God's original plan
  • 13:58 for Jews and Gentiles to become one in Messiah,

  • 14:21 For many, a trip to the Holy Land is the dream of a lifetime.
  • 14:25 The Bible truly comes alive as you see the sites
  • 14:28 where so many biblical events happened,
  • 14:31 where the teaching is always from a Messianic perspective.
  • 14:35 Come on a Zola Tour

  • 14:46 Contact us to reserve your dream of a lifetime.
  • 14:51 This whole series is about the prophetic and end times.
  • 14:55 One of the things we know about the end times
  • 14:57 is that Yeshua will reign out of Jerusalem for a thousand years.
  • 15:03 Wouldn't you love to go to Jerusalem now
  • 15:05 and pick out the place you want to reside in for a thousand years?
  • 15:09 You can!
  • 15:10 Go to levitt.com
  • 15:12 On our Tour Page find out about our Spring and Fall tours.
  • 15:16 The wonderful thing about the fall one is you can
  • 15:19 add an extension to Greece,
  • 15:20 and a Greek cruise.
  • 15:22 Can't wait for that.
  • 15:23 Yeah, I know.
  • 15:24 We hope you're enjoying learning Hebrew with us.
  • 15:27 Let's go to our lesson right now.
  • 15:34 Shalom Havarim
  • 15:36 One of the most easy and regularly used words here in Israel
  • 15:41 is the word slicha
  • 15:43 and it means "I'm sorry" or
  • 15:45 "I beg your pardon",
  • 15:47 depending on how you use it.
  • 15:48 So, let's say that I bump into somebody
  • 15:51 and I want to say, "I'm sorry",
  • 15:54 I would say " slicha ",
  • 15:56 but if somebody said something to me that
  • 16:00 I didn't hear or didn't understand
  • 16:02 I could say, " slicha "
  • 16:04 which means, "I'm sorry, I didn't understand"
  • 16:06 or, "I beg your pardon?"
  • 16:08 So as you travel throughout the Land,
  • 16:10 or as you "bump into people",
  • 16:13 you can also use this word " slicha ".
  • 16:18 I think this is a word that we really can use
  • 16:20 when we go to Israel next time.
  • 16:22 "Excuse me" or "Sorry" means
  • 16:24 " slicha "
  • 16:26 So, if you're in a tiny shop and you're shopping
  • 16:28 in Israel for the little trinkets
  • 16:30 and things to bring back,
  • 16:31 and you bump into someone accidentally,
  • 16:33 Oh, " slicha "!
  • 16:35 "Excuse me, I'm so sorry"!
  • 16:36 Or, if you're in the hotel and
  • 16:38 you're eating a wonderful dinner
  • 16:39 after a great tour day with Zola Levitt Tours,
  • 16:42 and you want that dessert and there's a big line, just go,
  • 16:45 "Ah, slicha "!
  • 16:46 and you grab what you want.
  • 16:48 Now let's go back to Dov on location in Israel.
  • 16:57 I've been sharing about the "curse for curse principle"
  • 16:59 of the Abrahamic Covenant,
  • 17:02 how oftentimes the Holy One of Israel,
  • 17:06 not only does He curse those who come against Israel,
  • 17:09 esteem them lightly and come against them,
  • 17:12 but also He does it "in kind".
  • 17:15 He does it in the same way only exponentially.
  • 17:19 And here's where I'm going with this.
  • 17:20 Here's why we're standing in front of this mosque today.
  • 17:25 For decades, the most powerful nations in the world sadly,
  • 17:30 over the last few decades increasingly, even the United States of America
  • 17:36 having been pushing Israel to negotiate with and give the Covenant Holy Land,
  • 17:42 where the Lord is bringing the Jewish people according to His prophetic Word today
  • 17:45 to pushing Israel to give that Land away.
  • 17:50 And even the City of the Great King," Yerushalayim ", "Jerusalem", giving it away
  • 17:56 to the followers of an anti-Christ, anti-Israel spirit.
  • 18:02 And so, here's a question.
  • 18:06 After 9-11 took place in New York City
  • 18:08 did you feel like negotiating with Osama bin Laden?
  • 18:13 "Curse for curse"
  • 18:17 It's hard to hear.
  • 18:18 It's hard to think in these terms
  • 18:21 but that Covenant and that Promise is real.
  • 18:27 And we need to understand the fear of the Lord
  • 18:29 which is the beginning of wisdom
  • 18:31 as it pertains to coming against His Covenant partners.
  • 18:34 If you believe in Messiah Jesus there's a real upside to this.
  • 18:37 He's going to fight for you too,
  • 18:42 So, as the nations of the world,
  • 18:45 "the quartet" - the UN, Russia, the European Union and the USA,
  • 18:49 have been leading the charge to push Israel to make them
  • 18:53 negotiate with these crazy murderers in radical Islam.
  • 19:00 Here's my question.
  • 19:01 What is covering the earth today?,
  • 19:05 One of the strategies of the so-called "Palestinian Refugees"
  • 19:09 by the Arab League and the U.N.
  • 19:10 and these others that I've mentioned,
  • 19:12 is to force Israel to let the refugees,
  • 19:15 the so-called refugees, about 5 million of them
  • 19:18 back in to flood into Israel, thus destroying Israel.
  • 19:22 What is now covering the earth today?
  • 19:24 What is the biggest crisis shaking the world today?
  • 19:28 The radical Muslim refugee crisis.
  • 19:33 "Curse for curse".
  • 19:36 This changes everything.
  • 19:37 If you understand these things and you watch the news you see,
  • 19:40 well not everything's not falling apart.
  • 19:41 Everything's coming together according to the Lord's prophetic Word.
  • 19:44 That makes me want to "Watch Therefore" and "Be Ready".
  • 19:48 The King is coming.
  • 19:50 Bless Israel - be blessed.
  • 19:52 And get ready for Messiah Yeshua.
  • 20:02 What we're seeing with the nations aligning,
  • 20:04 what where we're seeing with the rise of Islam,
  • 20:06 we're seeing the hatred toward anyone
  • 20:09 that's not of that movement
  • 20:11 is all indicators of where we are.
  • 20:14 And again, I really believe that we got to read the signs.
  • 20:21 Jeremiah 31 is one of the great Scriptures
  • 20:25 that talk about God's preservation.
  • 20:27 He said this,
  • 20:38 And every time that I look up in the sky and I see that moon
  • 20:42 I am reminded, counter to the politics of today,
  • 20:46 that Israel is there to stay.
  • 20:48 They're not going anywhere.
  • 20:49 God's preserving them,
  • 20:51 and He's put them back in the Land of Israel.
  • 20:52 He sticks the moon up there and He says,
  • 20:54 Hey world, I don't care what you say,
  • 20:56 Israel's going to be right there.
  • 20:58 CNN, ABC, CNBC, the rest of the BC's
  • 21:02 need to get God the memo that this Land
  • 21:04 is not the Jewish people's, it belongs to somebody else.
  • 21:08 But God says, No, this is my Land and I give it to who I want,
  • 21:13 and I want the Jewish people in it.
  • 21:22 We are in the middle of our series on prophecy
  • 21:25 with our Guest Analyst, Dr. Mark Hitchcock.
  • 21:28 We're so glad you're at this table with us.
  • 21:30 Our eyes are open right now with some of your teaching
  • 21:33 and it's really great.
  • 21:34 Thank you so much.
  • 21:35 Well praise the Lord, Thank you.
  • 21:36 It is such an honor.
  • 21:38 I want to talk about
  • 21:39 "blessing for blessing,"
  • 21:40 "curse for curse."
  • 21:41 We believers,
  • 21:43 especially American believers,
  • 21:44 we love the blessing part,
  • 21:46 we want more of that bless me, bless me,
  • 21:48 but we don't want to talk about the curse for curse.
  • 21:52 All the way back in Genesis Chapter 12,
  • 21:54 God made a promise to Abraham, and He
  • 21:56 makes a promise to Abraham and Isaac, and then Jacob.
  • 21:59 And that promise is...
  • 22:00 And in the Hebrew it's stated very clearly.
  • 22:02 He says, whoever blesses you, I will bless.
  • 22:05 But then He says, the one who curses you I must curse.
  • 22:09 WOW
  • 22:11 And then we see that play out through history.
  • 22:13 I believe that's the only policy statement in the Bible.
  • 22:17 In other words, how you treat Israel
  • 22:20 is going to be how you're going to go as a nation,
  • 22:22 or as an individual.
  • 22:23 And we've seen this many, many times in history.
  • 22:25 I heard this from someone years ago
  • 22:27 that every time someone tries to wipe out the Jewish people,
  • 22:29 the Jewish people always end up with a holiday.
  • 22:32 So true.
  • 22:33 You think about it, it's true,
  • 22:35 with Pharaoh who tried to do that
  • 22:37 and he killed all the young boys,
  • 22:38 and they get Passover.
  • 22:40 Haman tried to do it and they got the Feast of Purim.
  • 22:44 Antiochus Epiphanes tried to do it in the Intertestamental period,
  • 22:47 they get Feast of Lights, or "Hanukkah".
  • 22:49 And of course Hitler in the most diabolical
  • 22:52 of all attempts to eradicate the Jewish people,
  • 22:55 they ended up with May 14, 1948,
  • 22:57 from that the rebirth of the modern state of Israel.
  • 22:59 So, you see this played out over time with Stalin,
  • 23:02 and there's many others we could refer to.
  • 23:04 But we've also seen the other side of that with the United States
  • 23:08 who overall has been a nation that has blessed the Jewish people,
  • 23:11 at least in our past,
  • 23:12 and we've seen God's blessing upon our nation.
  • 23:14 I've always said, in spite of all the other problems we have,
  • 23:17 I think one reason God's had His hand of blessing upon this Country
  • 23:21 is because of our blessing of the Jewish people,
  • 23:23 and we need to keep that going forward as well,
  • 23:26 and not let that disappear.
  • 23:27 As a Pastor do you preach much about the curse?
  • 23:31 Sure, Yeah, we talk about it.
  • 23:33 I don't know if we've heard much about it.
  • 23:35 We don't like it, we don't want to hear the first part.
  • 23:38 It's not comfortable.
  • 23:39 No, we like the blessing.
  • 23:40 But history shows it.
  • 23:42 You look at these nations that have
  • 23:44 set themselves against Israel.
  • 23:45 And again, we're not saying in that,
  • 23:47 that everyone has to agree with everything
  • 23:49 that Israel always does, or the Jewish people do.
  • 23:51 They're human, and their government makes mistakes,
  • 23:54 but we don't want to set ourselves against them,
  • 23:56 or we don't want to be at odds with them,
  • 23:58 I think is what that's telling us.
  • 24:00 The United States has been a long time friend of the Jewish people,
  • 24:03 and because of that I think we have been blessed.
  • 24:06 There's been some times recently where that's
  • 24:11 been called into question a little bit
  • 24:12 about how much with some of our Presidents
  • 24:15 we've really been a friend to the Jewish people.
  • 24:17 I think it's a very important foreign policy
  • 24:20 for our country to be pro Nation of Israel
  • 24:23 and pro of the Jewish people.
  • 24:25 God is such a Covenant God.
  • 24:28 If He says it, He will keep it forever,
  • 24:32 and I think it's very interesting that you said
  • 24:33 in Hebrew how it's written
  • 24:36 the curse "I must",
  • 24:38 because I have set that into Covenant being.
  • 24:42 And we as believers need to be so wise about that,
  • 24:46 even the way we speak about God's Chosen people.
  • 24:50 Speak words of blessing,
  • 24:52 not words against.
  • 24:54 That's right.
  • 24:55 There's a real growing anti-Semitism in our world today.
  • 24:57 It's called the "new anti-Semitism" by many people,
  • 25:00 and we need to stand against that
  • 25:02 and stand for the Jewish people,
  • 25:04 and we can be blessed individually,
  • 25:06 and our nation can be blessed for that as well.
  • 25:08 And that's Zola's heart.
  • 25:09 So many years ago he started that,
  • 25:11 we must bless Israel,
  • 25:14 and I'm just honored to be a small part of this as we are,
  • 25:17 and here I have the opportunity
