  • 00:03 male announcer: Welcome to "Our Jewish Roots" with
  • 00:06 insightful Bible teaching by Dr. Jeffrey Seif.

  • 00:19 ♪♪♪
  • 00:28 David Hart: Thank you so much for joining us today.
  • 00:30 I am David Hart.
  • 00:31 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:33 Jeffrey Seif: And I am Jeffrey Seif.
  • 00:34 And I think it's cool, chapter 14 of Revelation, 144,000 Jewish
  • 00:38 believers with Jesus on Mount Zion.
  • 00:40 Sounds like we're in Israel and we got Jews believing in Jesus.
  • 00:43 That's what I'm talking about.
  • 00:44 Kirsten: Really it's not the church that--the Christian
  • 00:46 church standing there?
  • 00:47 It's the Jewish people.
  • 00:49 Jeffrey: Yeah, a lot of people taught,
  • 00:50 "Forget Israel. Forget Jews."
  • 00:52 But no one told the writer of Revelation.
  • 00:55 Kirsten: It's good stuff. David: It is good stuff.
  • 00:57 Kirsten: You're walking through three chapters today.
  • 00:59 I mean, that could be weeks of teaching.
  • 01:02 Jeffrey: Cecil B. DeMille said,
  • 01:04 "Give me any two pages of the Bible, I can give
  • 01:06 you an epic motion picture," especially with this stuff.
  • 01:09 Kirsten: Right.
  • 01:11 We see the infamous person coming out,
  • 01:14 the anti-Christ today, right?
  • 01:17 And there have been books written about him.
  • 01:20 Jeffrey: Now, girl, I'm trying to keep it happy and
  • 01:21 there you go; but no, it's true.
  • 01:23 We got to take a look at the book.
  • 01:25 Not called the anti-Christ here, but called the beast.
  • 01:28 I mean, the imagery there is profound and scary.
  • 01:31 We'll look at it.
  • 01:32 Kirsten: But we have good--sorry.
  • 01:34 Have to say we have good stuff coming too up and down the whole
  • 01:36 Book of Revelation.
  • 01:37 David: We start with chapter 14 today.
  • 01:38 Take your Bible for Dr. Seif's teaching.
  • 01:42 ♪♪♪
  • 01:47 Jeffrey: It amazes me how years removed from Jesus's death
  • 01:51 and the destruction of Jerusalem that came years later; years
  • 01:57 removed and many miles removed.
  • 02:00 It's fascinating to me how biblical authors still orient
  • 02:04 themselves to Jerusalem.
  • 02:08 I mention that because here in the Book of Revelation we're
  • 02:12 looking at a document penned around 95 AD.
  • 02:16 John is out there in the sea, far away in proximity to Turkey,
  • 02:23 and he has a vision in chapter 14.
  • 02:26 Behold, he sees the lamb standing on Mount Zion in
  • 02:33 Jerusalem surrounded by 144,000 Hebrews.
  • 02:40 I find that interesting 'cause at the time of the writing, a
  • 02:44 Jerusalem temple was leveled, Mount Zion was nothing.
  • 02:48 It was a stationhouse for the 10th Legion Fretensis.
  • 02:53 Actually, the symbol of the legion was a swine.
  • 02:58 At the time of the writing, Jews were in fact
  • 03:00 banished from the holy city.
  • 03:02 But John looks over the horizon and he sees something
  • 03:07 of a restoration.
  • 03:09 He mentions these 144,000, and they have a mark.
  • 03:16 I like to refer to it--to the mark as the mark of the best or
  • 03:21 the mark of the blessed as opposed to the mark
  • 03:24 of the beast.
  • 03:26 I say that because we're told here with him were 144,000,
  • 03:30 I mentioned that, and his name and his Father's name
  • 03:35 was written on their foreheads.
  • 03:37 I think that's rather interesting people here have the
  • 03:39 mark of the beast written on the forehead.
  • 03:41 Actually, the whole idea of having some kind of symbol
  • 03:46 attached to the person through what we'd call a tattoo was more
  • 03:50 common in century one than people realize.
  • 03:54 Legions would have, you know, their tattoo or their legion,
  • 03:58 the 12th legion on them.
  • 04:00 Technology had developed as a way that people identified
  • 04:03 with things.
  • 04:05 Today, goodness, you go out on the beach and you see people
  • 04:07 are all inked up.
  • 04:09 It was less common in antiquity, but people did identify.
  • 04:13 And we see that here the imagery plays off of that.
  • 04:18 These are people who make a deliberate decision to be
  • 04:21 identified with the lamb, even amidst the turbulence
  • 04:24 of trying times.
  • 04:25 I say that these are faithful witnesses to the Lord,
  • 04:28 they're following him, but Jerusalem has gone.
  • 04:32 It's a trying world, but these people have resolve.
  • 04:38 So much good stuff in the literature.
  • 04:40 There's an exhortation for perseverance, and why is that?
  • 04:44 Because these people are going to have to go through
  • 04:47 some stormy moments.
  • 04:50 In fact--interestingly, as we make our way through the
  • 04:53 chapter, we pivot from this glorious image of the faithful
  • 05:01 walking with the Lord and this encouragement to persevere.
  • 05:06 We pivot from that now and go to this image of a sickle that's
  • 05:11 going to be put into the earth for the harvest.
  • 05:14 Oh, you say, "Bearing fruit for the kingdom?"
  • 05:16 No, this is a harvest of sour grapes.
  • 05:20 The Bible talks about judgment.
  • 05:23 We go down to verse 15.
  • 05:25 "Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come,
  • 05:32 because the harvest of the earth is fully ripe."
  • 05:39 As I mentioned, the chapter begins with a prophetic word
  • 05:44 about the future; once again the faithful there at Zion, but
  • 05:48 that's not the present from this author's perspective.
  • 05:53 The present from his perspective is things are not right
  • 05:57 in the world.
  • 05:59 The world is up ended, and he is now going to pivot and give
  • 06:04 voice to coming judgments.
  • 06:06 Oh, there's an encouraging word still.
  • 06:08 I'll get to it in the next segment.
  • 06:10 But then we're bearing down on a world that is going
  • 06:14 to incur God's wrath.
  • 06:19 And if you've heard the old expression it gets darkest just
  • 06:23 before the dawn, well, we'll look at Revelation at its
  • 06:28 darkest, and we'll get to that in a moment.
  • 06:31 It's good to know, however, that God's sun shines and there's a
  • 06:35 little pun in all that, that he has a way of shining his graces
  • 06:39 upon those who walk with him.
  • 06:41 We'll get to that and more as we carry on, but let's leave it
  • 06:45 for the next segment.
  • 06:47 ♪♪♪
  • 06:53 Jeffrey: It fascinates me how people that are full of faith
  • 06:56 telescope into the future.
  • 06:58 You know, a telescope looks way beyond the moment and you reach
  • 07:01 out, out in--over the horizon as far as you can go and more.
  • 07:06 Telescoping presses individuals to do that.
  • 07:10 I say that because John is on record doing that here.
  • 07:14 Fifteenth chapter is a good one.
  • 07:16 They're not all good.
  • 07:17 In fact, it's going to sour moving forward, but there's a
  • 07:20 moment here the author sees a great and wonderful sign in
  • 07:24 chapter 15, verse 1.
  • 07:25 In verse 2 he sees something, and what does he see?
  • 07:29 He sees those who are overcomers.
  • 07:33 He sees they're standing and worshiping, and they're singing
  • 07:37 a new song, the Song of Moses.
  • 07:42 And it's interesting too because Revelation chapter 15 gives
  • 07:45 voice to something that took place in Exodus chapter 15.
  • 07:49 The numbers just so happened to line up, but what I want to do
  • 07:52 is unpack what they're singing 'cause I want it to be your
  • 07:56 message as well.
  • 07:58 They sing in verse 3, "Great and wonderful are your deeds.
  • 08:04 Adonai Elohei Tzva'ot."
  • 08:06 Great and wonderful are your deeds, oh Lord Almighty,
  • 08:10 oh Lord of hosts.
  • 08:12 Now, the truth of the matter is, not all is well on planet earth.
  • 08:16 Not everything is great, not everything is wonderful, and
  • 08:20 some people wonder if God's even involved in it.
  • 08:24 But these people with faith even amidst the turbulence of trying
  • 08:28 times, they don't lose their perspective that God is at work
  • 08:32 in the world to bring about his good purposes, and that's a key
  • 08:35 for success in life and walking with the Lord.
  • 08:38 You might find yourself in the shadow of death, but you still
  • 08:40 want to look to the author of life.
  • 08:42 He says, "Just and true are your ways, O king of the nations."
  • 08:49 Well, first of all, it doesn't look like God is the king of the
  • 08:51 nations because the devil, the ruler of this world, is just
  • 08:54 playing around in the sandbox.
  • 08:56 But this author, these people give voice to the fact that
  • 09:00 faith sees that ultimately God is the one who is in control.
  • 09:05 And though his ways aren't always discernible, nevertheless
  • 09:09 they give voice to the fact that still they are just and true.
  • 09:14 He asks a question rhetorically.
  • 09:16 "Who shall not fear and glorify your name, O Lord?"
  • 09:19 Truth of the matter is many don't fear or glorify.
  • 09:23 The world is in a state of debauchery and decay, but this
  • 09:26 is the assembly of the righteous.
  • 09:29 They will reverence him and glorify him.
  • 09:32 And he says, "For you alone are holy, and all the nation shall
  • 09:36 come and worship before you."
  • 09:41 It's fascinating 'cause we're at a point in time here where the
  • 09:44 emperor is galvanizing worship, that all should
  • 09:47 do obeisance to him.
  • 09:50 And by the way, these believers don't burn incense to him.
  • 09:53 They don't give him--they don't say their pledge of allegiance
  • 09:57 to the emperor, and they stand out and are persecuted by virtue
  • 10:01 of the fact that they don't do that.
  • 10:04 Well, here we're told that the righteous are the ones saying,
  • 10:07 "God, it's only to you."
  • 10:09 They not only have a prophetic picture that gives them
  • 10:13 encouragement for their own destiny, but they give voice to
  • 10:16 the fact here: "All nations shall come
  • 10:19 and worship before you."
  • 10:22 And at this sense, the rebels.
  • 10:24 In the empire, the emperor was beckoning that worship
  • 10:29 should be directed to him.
  • 10:31 They say no, that at some point in time the earth is going to
  • 10:36 acknowledge he who really is the King of kings and the Lord
  • 10:41 of lords, and this is not the emperor who sits in Rome.
  • 10:48 This author is going to go on with prophetic vision to cast
  • 10:52 aspersions on that whole empire system with its wickedness.
  • 10:58 He envisions a point in time when all of that is displaced
  • 11:02 when God's kingdom comes, when his will is done on earth
  • 11:06 as it is in heaven.
  • 11:08 And that's the Lord's Prayer, is it not?
  • 11:10 He says, "All nations will come and worship you,
  • 11:13 for your righteous acts have been revealed."
  • 11:19 His righteous acts have been revealed to them,
  • 11:24 but it hasn't yet been fully and finally manifest.
  • 11:29 All that said, he goes on to say in verse 5, "After these things,
  • 11:33 I looked and the temple of the tent of witness
  • 11:37 in heaven was opened."
  • 11:39 As I opened in the program, the temple had long
  • 11:41 since been destroyed.
  • 11:42 There was just nothing there but the 10th Legion Fretensis,
  • 11:46 which was an insult, an affront to Biblical religion.
  • 11:50 But this author sees that all is not well but all is not lost
  • 11:58 because he knows that God has a plan and a purpose, and he sees
  • 12:03 in the heavenly court, in the heavenly temple it's opened up
  • 12:09 and something is coming; and what's coming is retribution,
  • 12:15 what's coming is a world where sinners are going to find
  • 12:20 themselves in the hand of an angry God.
  • 12:23 That's what's coming.
  • 12:25 It's a tough story.
  • 12:27 We have to look at it.
  • 12:29 We have to go to it and we have to go through it, and we'll come
  • 12:32 out the other end of it.
  • 12:34 I'm mentioning that because chapter 16
  • 12:36 is a rollercoaster ride.
  • 12:38 There's turbulence as we fly through the air making our way
  • 12:41 through the end of Revelation, but worry not.
  • 12:44 There's a safe and glorious landing.
  • 12:46 More to come.

  • 14:45 David: Right.
  • 14:47 Right now let's go back to Dr. Seif's teaching on Revelation.
  • 14:50 ♪♪♪
  • 14:55 Jeffrey: The word is nefarious.
  • 14:58 It means inherently evil.
  • 15:01 I mention that because Revelation 16 gives a window
  • 15:06 into evil at work at the latter edge of time, an evil that
  • 15:12 mobilizes people for war, carnage, destruction.
  • 15:18 Oh, to be sure, the 16th chapter of the Book of Revelation is not
  • 15:23 an easy read, much like Exodus.
  • 15:27 In days gone by, there's plagues, darkness; there's
  • 15:31 earthquakes, there's boils, there's miseries, there's
  • 15:35 upheavals, but within that something new emerges
  • 15:41 that we don't see in Exodus.
  • 15:45 We see an anti-Christ, a smooth talker going before him;
  • 15:53 according to the literature are demonic spirits that as I'd said
  • 15:57 a moment ago that mobilize people for a war--a great war,
  • 16:04 a long anticipated war.
  • 16:08 In the 16th chapter in verse 13, speaking of an unlucky number,
  • 16:14 the author says, "I saw coming," he says--I'm skipping.
  • 16:19 "These unclean spirits."
  • 16:22 In verse 14, we're told these are demonic spirits performing
  • 16:28 miraculous signs, who go out to the kings of the whole world to
  • 16:36 gather them for battle on the great day of the Lord of hosts
  • 16:44 or the Lord Almighty.
  • 16:47 This author gives voice to the whole earth being mobilized.
  • 16:52 This is not a regional spat.
  • 16:57 This is someone that has power to bring them all in in some
  • 17:01 sense, and he brings them to battle and he takes them to a
  • 17:06 place we're told in verse 16.
  • 17:11 He says, "The spirits gathered the kings to the place called in
  • 17:18 Hebrew Har-Megiddo.
  • 17:22 Har is mountain, Megiddo is the place commonly referred to as
  • 17:27 Armageddon.
  • 17:30 Now, let me make a point here that in our world today even
  • 17:34 people that aren't religious TV watchers or churchgoers.
  • 17:40 In their own estimation, they'd consider themselves
  • 17:44 atheist or agnostic.
  • 17:46 Even amongst those that have no biblical literacy to speak of,
  • 17:52 when you say the word Armageddon, in their mind it
  • 17:55 conjures up this climactic battle
  • 18:00 at the ragged edge of history.
  • 18:05 A religious battle has something to do with the Middle East.
  • 18:09 There's some vague awareness of that for people
  • 18:12 that are--aren't aware of things of the Lord at all.
  • 18:17 They get it from here.
  • 18:19 Armageddon isn't just a name.
  • 18:22 It's an actual place.
  • 18:26 It's not just a place in biblical literature.
  • 18:30 It's a place here, and I'm looking at a map of Israel.
  • 18:37 Jerusalem here, what's called the West Bank here.
  • 18:42 Right here Megiddo exists.
  • 18:47 I've been there with tourists and film crews many times
  • 18:52 because people are fascinated by the place.
  • 18:56 It's a grand vista that overlooks a valley;
  • 18:59 a large valley, a verdant valley, a fruitful valley.
  • 19:05 And everyone who is anyone in war knows that if you're
  • 19:09 bringing forces into this region for a battle, you have to park
  • 19:13 them for a season at Megiddo to freshen up.
  • 19:18 This is a major staging area, and it's been for centuries.
  • 19:26 That's why there's some 20, 21 or so layers here at Armageddon
  • 19:30 of different kings that are fortified it because they've
  • 19:34 known that they've had to secure this place to control the valley
  • 19:39 'cause this is the entrance way down to Jerusalem.
  • 19:44 Oh, there's a war coming.
  • 19:48 This, by the way, is one of the reasons why I think Israel is
  • 19:55 important for prophetic purposes.
  • 19:59 People say--and I get it.
  • 20:01 They say, "You know, Revelation is hard to understand."
  • 20:04 And indeed it is because we're using language that comes from
  • 20:09 century one; picture language, colorful language that doesn't
  • 20:13 necessarily speak to moderns.
  • 20:16 Moderns aren't aware of all that, but moderns increasingly
  • 20:20 are aware of this, that Israel has been reborn recently.
  • 20:26 Moderns understand that the attempts of men not withstanding
  • 20:30 Am Yisrael Chai, the people of Israel live, and people will
  • 20:34 say, "Oh, that's miraculous."
  • 20:37 People can feel the tension.
  • 20:39 When they turn on the news, they see the Jews,
  • 20:42 among other things.
  • 20:44 Oh, there's something happening, and it's fascinating to me
  • 20:48 how it dovetails with the prophetic Word.
  • 20:51 There's so much to say about it.
  • 20:53 That's why we're doing a last day series on Revelation and

  • 22:57 David: That was a song from our founder, Zola Levitt.
  • 22:59 Today's program is about worship.
  • 23:02 Jeffrey: Well, it's in there, you know.
  • 23:04 To be sure, chapter 15 is just this great piece.
  • 23:07 Kirsten: And a worship service.
  • 23:09 I love that it says there are going to be new songs,
  • 23:13 new songs.
  • 23:14 You try to get new songs all the time with your worship leading.
  • 23:17 David: Sometimes people don't like the new songs that we sing.
  • 23:20 They want the old.
  • 23:21 Jeffrey: Yeah, I think contextually here the issue
  • 23:23 is that a lot of people, the narrative internally
  • 23:25 is despaired, decayed, disorientation,
  • 23:28 but then they have a new disposition that gives birth
  • 23:30 to new speech and to celebrate and put it to music,
  • 23:33 and that's definitely what's at play in the literature.
  • 23:35 Kirsten: I love--they tie back to Song of Moses.
  • 23:39 This is not anything anti-Jewish right there, is it?
  • 23:44 We're going all the way back to Moses, a Song of Moses.
  • 23:47 It's just beautiful to me. I love it.
  • 23:49 Jeffrey: It's interesting.
  • 23:50 Some people want to dump the older testament.
  • 23:52 "That's the Jew book. We have the new book."
  • 23:53 But this author never got the message.
  • 23:55 He's harking back to Moshe Rabbenu,
  • 23:57 to Moses, to a famous song.
  • 24:00 You know, the Hebrews went through a bad way in Egypt,
  • 24:02 but it was deliverance.
  • 24:03 Similarly, here reminded of is the fact
  • 24:06 that difficulties notwithstanding.
  • 24:07 There's deliverance that's forthcoming, and here they're
  • 24:10 celebrating this new deliverance with a new song
  • 24:13 to the point made earlier.
  • 24:14 David: So Scripture is telling us about what it's going
  • 24:17 to be like someday when we get to heaven.
  • 24:20 Any surprises?
  • 24:21 Jeffrey: About?
  • 24:23 David: About what it's going to be like?
  • 24:25 Jeffrey: Well, yeah.
  • 24:26 The fact is that that eternal life, that redemption, that
  • 24:28 grace, we don't have to wait till then in order to get it.
  • 24:30 On the other side of the grave, you know, what no eye has seen,
  • 24:33 ear heard, or heart of man conceive of God is laid up for
  • 24:36 those who love him, but eternal life starts now.
  • 24:38 This blessing is now.
  • 24:39 There's even deliverance now for people,
  • 24:41 and that's the good news.
  • 24:43 Too much of church talks about, "Accept Jesus Christ and you can
  • 24:45 have it all good on the other side of the grave."
  • 24:48 Eternal life starts now, and Yeshua comes into our life now
  • 24:51 and this deliverance for the making now.
  • 24:55 Kirsten: Hearken back. Hearken back.
  • 24:56 I hardly ever use that in real life.
  • 24:58 Hearken back to your first segment.
  • 25:00 I love what you said.
  • 25:02 You talked about the writer of Revelation and the writers in
  • 25:04 the book, they always focus back to Jerusalem.
  • 25:08 It is the holy city, and everything in this world,
  • 25:11 beginning and end times, focuses on one place.
  • 25:16 Jeffrey: That gives me an opportunity to talk about this
  • 25:18 backdrop that our viewers paid for.
  • 25:21 In fact, the vision that you see on television
  • 25:24 right now, you paid for it.
  • 25:25 The backdrop here is Jerusalem, and we'd like to take people
  • 25:30 back to what God was up to when he walked in Israel in the flesh
  • 25:36 in the person of Jesus, Yeshua.
  • 25:39 We want to take people back to what God will be doing forward
  • 25:42 when we look prophetically at Israel.
  • 25:45 Let me just say while speaking to that.
  • 25:48 Please help us in telling the story.
  • 25:52 Here they're worshiping God in song.
  • 25:54 Worship means to ascribe worth to something.
  • 26:00 It comes from a word meaning a ship of worth.
  • 26:03 And if you find worth, if you find value in what we do, please
  • 26:07 put something valuable in the--to help us do it.
  • 26:12 This is not cheap.
  • 26:14 And I don't mean that we come with high price tags or the
  • 26:17 production crew, but just the whole enterprise of purchasing
  • 26:22 airtime and making television.
  • 26:24 It gets into the homes of tens of thousands of people, hundreds
  • 26:28 of thousands of people that don't make their way to church,
  • 26:31 and we want to give them a good view of the good news.
  • 26:34 Thank you for helping us, and please stay with us
  • 26:37 and continue to do so.
  • 26:39 We are viewer-supported.
  • 26:41 You'll see a 30-minute television program.
  • 26:44 You won't hear money talked about for 3 minutes of it,
  • 26:46 but I need to talk about it now.
  • 26:48 Please get behind us with some worship if you find value
  • 26:51 in what we do.
  • 26:52 Kirsten: Thank you so much for opening the book, unveiling
  • 26:55 it for us, and we'll come back next week with more
  • 26:58 from the Book of Revelation.
  • 27:00 Jeffrey: We're going to go on this our Jewish roots journey
  • 27:03 together, me and you and you.
  • 27:05 Thank you. All done now, however.
  • 27:08 And as you go, sha-alu shalom Yirushalayim.
