Episode: “Back to Eden”
The journey to restoring a relationship with God has no shortcuts. Abram was tested as he traveled over harsh territory to the Promised Land. Later, the Tabernacle provided the setting for sacrifice necessary to access God.
Series: “Return to Eden”
In honor of the modern nation of Israel’s 70th birthday, this series tells the story of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The Lord bridged the relationship gap (caused by mankind’s sin in the Garden of Eden) by creating a special relationship with a people and a land that eventually led to the Messiah. David and Kirsten Hart present this series featuring teaching and analysis from Dr. Jeffrey Seif, interviews from experts, insights from Sarah Liberman, and music written by Zola Levitt.

  • 00:49 David: Thank you for joining us today
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,50);
  • 00:50 on "Zola Levitt Presents," I'm David Hart.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,51);
  • 00:52 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,53);
  • 00:53 Jeffrey Seif: Jeffrey Seif.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,54);
  • 00:55 Kirsten: Today we'll be discussing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,55);
  • 00:56 on our brand-new series, "Return to Eden,"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,58);
  • 00:58 about the very first Hebrew Abram, Avram,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,62);
  • 01:03 who God called from his homeland to a brand-new unknown place.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,67);
  • 01:07 Jeffrey: Yes, Ur of Chaldea.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,69);
  • 01:09 He had a Kuwaiti passport and he didn't return to Canaan,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,73);
  • 01:14 he turned toward it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,75);
  • 01:16 God beckoned him out.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,76);
  • 01:17 Kirsten: Brand-new land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,78);
  • 01:18 Jeffrey: Yes, and the Lord beckons us to brand-new places,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,80);
  • 01:21 too, doesn't he?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,81);
  • 01:22 David: He's still calling us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,83);
  • 01:23 Jeffrey: Yes, he does. He calls.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,84);
  • 01:25 The word "calling" is fascinating.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,86);
  • 01:26 It's not just reserved for Bible characters.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,88);
  • 01:28 God calls people today.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,89);
  • 01:30 Kirsten: And in this next segment,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,91);
  • 01:32 where are you teaching from?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,93);
  • 01:33 Jeffrey: The wilderness of Judea.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,95);
  • 01:35 It's a fascinating place that looks like the end of the earth.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,98);
  • 01:38 David: Let's go there right now.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,100);
  • 01:40 ♪♪♪
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,112);
  • 01:52 Jeffrey: Salim.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,116);
  • 01:56 Avram came from, in effect, the crossroads of civilization.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,122);
  • 02:02 I mention that because when we look at early Genesis we see
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,125);
  • 02:05 that individuals were scattered all over the face of the earth,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,127);
  • 02:08 but eventually they federate into various groups, and they
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,132);
  • 02:12 cluster around places where there was water.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,135);
  • 02:15 And if you look at a topographical map,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,137);
  • 02:17 whether it's Mesopotamia--
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,138);
  • 02:19 which is a Greek word meaning between the rivers--
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,141);
  • 02:22 or the Nile deltas,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,143);
  • 02:23 you have civilizations that emerge.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,146);
  • 02:26 In early Genesis there was a watered place called Eden,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,149);
  • 02:29 and they were scattered, but then from Mesopotamia
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,152);
  • 02:33 one is beckoned to make his way
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,155);
  • 02:36 back to the land that was once Eden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,158);
  • 02:39 This fella's name was Avram and he's known as a Ebreu, Hebrew.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,164);
  • 02:45 Etymologically, the word "ebreu" comes from a word
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,167);
  • 02:48 meaning beyond the river.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,169);
  • 02:50 He is on the other side of the Euphrates and he is beckoned
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,174);
  • 02:54 to come this way, driven by certain impulses in his breast.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,179);
  • 02:59 He wants to get back to the ancestral homeland,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,183);
  • 03:03 and he gathers what he has.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,185);
  • 03:06 He was a pastoral sort, that is sheep, goats, livestock,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,190);
  • 03:10 and he goes on a journey back to Eden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,194);
  • 03:15 I wanna open up the text and take a look at Eden as we go on
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,197);
  • 03:17 our journey to understand the story of the return to Eden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,206);
  • 03:27 Jeffrey: It's a long journey, hundreds and hundreds of miles
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,210);
  • 03:30 over tough uncharted real estate.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,213);
  • 03:34 To make that trek, something's got to be stimulated
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,216);
  • 03:37 within your heart of hearts to do it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,218);
  • 03:39 Much as Abraham made that journey some time back, it's
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,222);
  • 03:42 interesting, Hebrews have made their way back to the ancestral
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,225);
  • 03:45 homeland here and many others too.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,228);
  • 03:48 Christians, particularly, come here in the tune of millions
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,232);
  • 03:53 to walk where Jesus walked.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,234);
  • 03:55 There's just something about being in what's called
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,237);
  • 03:57 the Holy Land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,239);
  • 03:59 The Bible doesn't call itself that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,241);
  • 04:02 There is this designation that's descriptive,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,243);
  • 04:04 the Land of Promise, thus Promised Land,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,246);
  • 04:07 and certainly the real estate itself is holy,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,250);
  • 04:10 because inasmuch as God dwelt in Eden,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,253);
  • 04:14 so too he made his footstool and his throne to dwell
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,258);
  • 04:18 in the city of Yerushalaim.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,260);
  • 04:21 I want to explore Abraham in a minute and those impulses
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,264);
  • 04:24 and do that with the context of understanding that people tend--
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,268);
  • 04:28 all of life tends to move-- I want you to hear me
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,272);
  • 04:32 on this--it moves where there's water.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,275);
  • 04:35 There's something that--there's something that's quenched in the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,278);
  • 04:39 soul to come to Ha'aretz Canaan, Eretz Yisrael,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,283);
  • 04:43 the land of the promise.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,286);
  • 04:46 I want to look please in early Genesis, chapter 2,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,291);
  • 04:51 and note how the place called Eden is noteworthy
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,298);
  • 04:58 because of its water.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,300);
  • 05:00 And I wanna develop that a little.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,301);
  • 05:02 We read in chapter 2, verse 10:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,303);
  • 05:03 "[speaking foreign language]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,306);
  • 05:06 And a river went out, from Eden,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,310);
  • 05:11 [speaking foreign language]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,312);
  • 05:13 and it watered the garden."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,316);
  • 05:16 I mention this because where you have an abundance of water,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,322);
  • 05:23 there's life that grows up around it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,325);
  • 05:26 And if you look at the temple itself in Jerusalem,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,332);
  • 05:33 Lawrence Stager, professor of archeology, Harvard University,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,336);
  • 05:37 I heard him give a lecture on Jerusalem itself,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,340);
  • 05:40 the way it was mapped out in the antiquity
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,342);
  • 05:43 relative to Solomon's Temple, and he observes--
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,345);
  • 05:45 he lights upon the Gihon.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,347);
  • 05:48 It was a spring that emanates from underneath the city,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,351);
  • 05:51 and it would go out and water the garden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,354);
  • 05:55 It would go down from there to, you know,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,358);
  • 05:58 the valley of Ge-hinnom as it's known today, the Kidron.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,361);
  • 06:01 It makes its way round and his thesis was that the temple
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,364);
  • 06:05 complex itself was set up topographically in order
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,369);
  • 06:10 to mimic the watered garden that is Eden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,376);
  • 06:17 I mention this within the context of observing
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,379);
  • 06:19 that there's something within the heart, in the soul,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,383);
  • 06:24 that beckons people to come.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,385);
  • 06:26 There's even language in literature,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,387);
  • 06:27 "Taste and see that the Lord is good."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,389);
  • 06:29 It plays the living waters.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,391);
  • 06:32 You know, there's an old song, "Come to the waters,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,394);
  • 06:34 stand by my side, you know, you won't be denied."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,397);
  • 06:38 The language is just so rich in biblical text.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,401);
  • 06:42 Coming to Israel is coming to the garden, it's coming
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,406);
  • 06:46 to a place in a religious sense where there is
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,409);
  • 06:49 a fountain of living water.

  • 07:04 Jeffrey: It didn't even exist.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,429);
  • 07:09 What am I referring to?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,431);
  • 07:11 The great world-class city behind me.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,435);
  • 07:16 It was nothing but sand.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,439);
  • 07:20 When Israel itself was under the hands
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,442);
  • 07:23 of the Turkish Ottoman Empire, nothing developed there.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,447);
  • 07:28 I'm coming to you from the city of Jaffa.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,450);
  • 07:31 Yafo, as it's known in Hebrew, has a long history
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,454);
  • 07:34 going back to Bible days.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,456);
  • 07:36 Behind me was absolutely nothing.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,459);
  • 07:40 At least until the Jews got here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,463);
  • 07:44 Tel Aviv, Jews raised money, purchased some land,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,468);
  • 07:48 and built a school here, a very unique school.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,472);
  • 07:52 The purpose of that school?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,474);
  • 07:54 To teach this newly minted language called modern Hebrew.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,479);
  • 08:00 It had fallen into disuse.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,482);
  • 08:02 Hebrew was the language of the synagogue and prayer
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,485);
  • 08:05 but a nation was born and a language to go with it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,490);
  • 08:11 So much was born here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,492);
  • 08:13 Speaking of the Hebrew language, I'd like to go back to the book
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,496);
  • 08:16 Bereishit, Genesis, and unpack a verse in brief and give
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,500);
  • 08:21 an application that resonates with me.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,503);
  • 08:24 We're told in 2:15:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,506);
  • 08:27 "[speaking foreign language]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,508);
  • 08:29 And he took,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,510);
  • 08:30 [speaking foreign language]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,512);
  • 08:32 that is, the Lord God took the man
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,514);
  • 08:34 [speaking foreign language]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,516);
  • 08:36 and he put him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,517);
  • 08:38 He took him and placed him in Eden."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,520);
  • 08:40 And here's what I wanna get to:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,522);
  • 08:42 "[speaking foreign language] to work her,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,525);
  • 08:46 [speaking foreign language] and to care for her."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,528);
  • 08:49 Conceptually here, God takes a man and he puts him in a place
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,533);
  • 08:54 where he was destined to work.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,536);
  • 08:56 He was destined to throw his energies against that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,540);
  • 09:01 Now, I've long said as someone who's raised boys,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,544);
  • 09:05 if you can find a woman that you love and work that you love,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,548);
  • 09:08 I've told my sons, that's 95% of life right there.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,551);
  • 09:12 And I think you'd say amen to that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,553);
  • 09:13 It's good if a man can find something that suits him.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,556);
  • 09:17 I mention that because here there's a man that's brought
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,560);
  • 09:20 to a place and he's ideally suited for it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,564);
  • 09:24 This, by the way, is something of a prototype
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,567);
  • 09:28 of something to come later.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,569);
  • 09:30 I mention that because Adam, as we know,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,572);
  • 09:33 is gonna get kicked out of the garden.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,574);
  • 09:35 Later on, this fella Avram is gonna be beckoned
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,577);
  • 09:38 to return to it,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,579);
  • 09:39 and in the 15th chapter of the book Bereishit, of Genesis,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,582);
  • 09:43 we're told: "On that day Adonai cut a covenant with Abraham."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,588);
  • 09:48 In Hebrew: "Karat berit."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,590);
  • 09:51 Karat comes from a word meaning to cut.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,594);
  • 09:54 We might think of making a deal.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,596);
  • 09:57 Oh, and today, in colloquial English,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,599);
  • 09:59 people talk about cutting a deal.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,601);
  • 10:02 It really comes from a literal reading of the literature.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,604);
  • 10:05 God cut a deal.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,606);
  • 10:07 There was a sacrifice. That's another story.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,608);
  • 10:08 "God cut a covenant with Abram, saying,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,611);
  • 10:12 'I give this land to your seed.'"
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,615);
  • 10:16 It's not just that it's given to him,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,618);
  • 10:18 that it's given to his progeny.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,621);
  • 10:21 And it's not just given for the moment,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,623);
  • 10:23 it's given in perpetuity.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,625);
  • 10:26 Now this is a nice day here in modern Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,627);
  • 10:28 and the land is abuzz.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,629);
  • 10:29 People are taking time off.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,630);
  • 10:31 They've worked very hard to cultivate all of this, to bring
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,634);
  • 10:34 the miracle of Israel out of the earth into the modern world.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,638);
  • 10:38 And there's activity, there's music,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,640);
  • 10:40 there's a kind of bustling atmosphere that brisks here.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,644);
  • 10:44 What's the point that I wanna make to you from here?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,647);
  • 10:47 Interestingly, when you look at biblical literature,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,650);
  • 10:50 God puts a man and he puts him at a place
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,652);
  • 10:53 and there's a work that he's uniquely styled to accomplish.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,657);
  • 10:58 And this, by the way, is telling of the fact that as we develop
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,663);
  • 11:04 the story further on that God tells Avraham
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,667);
  • 11:07 [speaking foreign language]
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,668);
  • 11:09 and his progeny, there's a land, there's a place,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,670);
  • 11:11 where you're destined to and destined to flower
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,673);
  • 11:14 in that particular land.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,675);
  • 11:16 And that flowering is something that exists in perpetuity right
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,679);
  • 11:19 into the modern era as is amply attested by the fact that I'm
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,684);
  • 11:25 coming to you now from the miracle that is Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,688);
  • 11:29 "Oh, a little better than 100 years ago, people started
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,691);
  • 11:31 returning and you know what?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,694);
  • 11:34 God was with them.

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,942);
  • 15:42 He had a plan for a solution and central to the plan was a place
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,947);
  • 15:47 where women and men would bring sacrifice,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,950);
  • 15:50 inasmuch as a Adam and Eve
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,952);
  • 15:52 made a sacrifice to placate the divine,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,955);
  • 15:55 so too Israelites were beckoned to do much the same.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,959);
  • 15:59 We read in the book Exodus, with Moshe Rabbenu, with Moses,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,963);
  • 16:04 how they make their way into the wilderness,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,966);
  • 16:06 and instructions are given.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,968);
  • 16:08 It starts in the 25th chapter of Exodus and works its way to the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,971);
  • 16:12 end of the book where there's instructions given about
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,975);
  • 16:15 the manufacture of the space that is going to long abide
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,979);
  • 16:20 in this place.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,981);
  • 16:22 And after the particulars were given in Exodus, there's
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,985);
  • 16:26 something interesting that's noted that really harks back to
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,989);
  • 16:30 Genesis itself, according to a number of biblical commentators.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,993);
  • 16:34 This sacred space was developed, the tabernacle,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,998);
  • 16:38 and then this is before it got here,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1000);
  • 16:40 but the particulars of it with a courtyard
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1002);
  • 16:42 and the Holy of Holies with the ark and the Holy Place
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1007);
  • 16:48 with the candelabra/menorah, with the incense altar,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1012);
  • 16:53 with the table of showbread, and all of that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1015);
  • 16:56 The particulars were spelled out.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1018);
  • 16:58 It was manufactured and after all of that which was created,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1022);
  • 17:03 we're told in chapter 40, verse 33b in Exodus:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1026);
  • 17:07 "So Moses finished the work."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1029);
  • 17:09 It fascinates me that you have the creation of the sacred space
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1033);
  • 17:14 and it concludes then with, "And it was all--Moses finished it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1037);
  • 17:17 It was completed."
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1039);
  • 17:19 I mention that because if you look at the creations in heaven
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1041);
  • 17:22 and earth and the story of Adam and Eve,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1044);
  • 17:25 in early Genesis we're told in chapter 2:
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1047);
  • 17:28 "[speaking foreign language] God had made it," and then,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1051);
  • 17:32 "[speaking foreign language] that he made it.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1056);
  • 17:37 He finished it on the seventh day
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1059);
  • 17:39 [speaking foreign language] and he rested.

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1066);

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1068);
  • 17:48 and then there's a completion notation.

  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1385);
  • 23:05 Now, the word for pomegranate in Hebrew is rimmon, and it is one
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1390);
  • 23:11 of the fruit that the spies brought back from spying out
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1393);
  • 23:13 the land to symbolize the fruitfulness of this new
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1396);
  • 23:16 wonderful place that God was bringing the people of Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1399);
  • 23:20 In Israel, here today, we eat it in the feast of Rosh HaShana.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1404);
  • 23:24 Because the pomegranate has so many seeds inside of it,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1407);
  • 23:28 it is a sign of abundance and people eat it
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1410);
  • 23:30 as a sign of abundance for the coming year.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1413);
  • 23:34 Now, the pomegranate was also featured in the tabernacle and
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1416);
  • 23:37 in the Temple of Solomon it was featured on the pillars within
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1421);
  • 23:41 the temple and worn on the edge of the priest's garments.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1425);
  • 23:46 There was a bell and then there was a pomegranate as a sign
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1428);
  • 23:49 of abundance and the fruitfulness of God.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1431);
  • 23:51 So this week, as you contemplate the fruit and blessing of the
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1434);
  • 23:55 Lord, may your life resemble the--this pomegranate,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1439);
  • 23:59 full of abundance and seeds for the kingdom of God.

  • 25:07 David: As you are watching our program today,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1508);
  • 25:09 there are people right now getting
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1510);
  • 25:10 on an airplane heading to Tel Aviv, Israel,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1513);
  • 25:13 and what's that saying we've heard?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1516);
  • 25:16 Kirsten: Well, it's a great saying,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1517);
  • 25:18 that you just don't simply go to Israel.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1520);
  • 25:20 That God calls you there as he's been calling people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1524);
  • 25:24 for thousands of years from Abraham.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1526);
  • 25:27 He was the first one that God said,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1529);
  • 25:29 "Come to this land," right?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1530);
  • 25:31 Jeffrey: Yes, and he's all about beckoning people
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1533);
  • 25:33 to his place.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1534);
  • 25:35 Unfortunately, when he calls, we don't all pick up the phone,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1538);
  • 25:39 or sometimes the line is busy 'cause we're talking
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1541);
  • 25:41 to other gods.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1543);
  • 25:43 That's something worth fixing, isn't it?
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1545);
  • 25:45 David: We're so thankful that our son--
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1546);
  • 25:47 Kirsten: Got the call. David: Got the call.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1548);
  • 25:49 Kirsten: And listened to it. And he picked it up.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1550);
  • 25:50 Jeffrey: He picked up the phone.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1551);
  • 25:52 That's the best answer when God calls us.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1553);
  • 25:53 David: He said yes.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1554);
  • 25:55 Kirsten: And thousands of people, thousands,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1556);
  • 25:56 are making Aliyah, they're going up to Jerusalem
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1559);
  • 26:00 and to Israel, and actually, our son Ryan,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1562);
  • 26:03 who works at the International Christian Embassy
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1565);
  • 26:05 in Jerusalem, just this past week,
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1567);
  • 26:08 they've filmed 300 people from France making Aliyah.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1571);
  • 26:12 Unbelievable.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1573);
  • 26:13 Jeffrey: Yes, and all of that, to me, is a template
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1575);
  • 26:15 in the natural, what happens in the spiritual.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1577);
  • 26:17 And our viewers can tap into that.
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1579);
  • 26:19 They feel called to these panels behind us, and for those
  • javascript: void video_jump(0,1583);
  • 26:23 that can't come to Israel, we bring it to you.
