Episode: “Moses”
At age 80, Moses heard the call of God to deliver His people out of Egypt. At that time, these former slaves gained access to the God of Heaven through His Holy Sanctuary. Today, Believers also have access to atonement and mercy. Deliverance is only a prayer away.
Series: “Divine Deliverance (2020)”
from Avraham to Yeshua
In this series, we examine how the Lord offered a message of deliverance through 12 significant Bible characters, beginning with faithful Abraham and culminating with Messiah Himself. Dr. Jeffrey Seif teaches on location in Israel and discusses the lesson’s application with David and Kirsten Hart in the studio. We enjoy enlightening dramatic re-enactments from past series, along with Zola’s music, completely re-orchestrated and sung by David and Kirsten.

Caption transcript for Divine Deliverance (2020): “Moses” (5/11)

  • 00:03 ♪♪♪ male announcer: Welcome to "Our Jewish Roots"
  • 00:06 with insightful Bible teaching by Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 00:09 In this program, an 80-year-old man is called by God to bring
  • 00:12 his people out of bondage, today on "Divine on Deliverance."
  • 00:21 male announcer: From the beginning, our Creator revealed
  • 00:24 his will to the common man.
  • 00:27 Individuals listened to his call and responded in obedience.
  • 00:31 From the first Hebrew Avraham to the culmination of salvation
  • 00:36 in Messiah himself, the Lord faithfully intervenes
  • 00:41 with his divine deliverance.
  • 00:53 David Hart: Thank you for joining us today,
  • 00:55 I'm David Hart.
  • 00:57 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:59 Jeffrey Seif: And I am Jeffrey Seif.
  • 01:00 Being a Jewish guy, hey look, we're looking at Moses today.
  • 01:03 Works for me, what about you?
  • 01:05 Kirsten: I got to tell you he's my favorite.
  • 01:07 He is, I love Moses.
  • 01:09 Jeffrey: Why?
  • 01:11 Kirsten: Because he complained to God, and God still loved him.
  • 01:14 He was just really real.
  • 01:17 There are things about Moses's life that were, yes, divine
  • 01:20 encounters, but he was so honest and so real to God.
  • 01:24 And God was just like, "You're my boy."
  • 01:26 Jeffrey: I love it.
  • 01:28 David: I don't think we knew his name was Moshe, though,
  • 01:30 before this.
  • 01:31 Kirsten: No, we've learned a lot of things from you.
  • 01:33 Jeffrey: A little Hebrew.
  • 01:35 Grew up in Sunday school, but you're getting a
  • 01:37 new perspective.
  • 01:38 Kirsten: That's good.
  • 01:39 David: Moses hears from a burning bush today
  • 01:41 on our dramatic reenactment, let's go there now.
  • 01:42 ♪♪♪
  • 01:46 male announcer: While attending sheep, Moses would hear a voice
  • 01:48 from a burning bush.
  • 01:55 God: Moses, come now therefore, and I will send thee unto
  • 02:00 Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people, the children of
  • 02:04 Israel, out of Egypt.
  • 02:07 And this is my memorial unto all generations.
  • 02:16 Jeffrey: I'm not an Egyptologist.
  • 02:18 Truth be known, there's a lot I don't know, but I do know this,
  • 02:21 that in the Bible, the deliverer came out of Egypt.
  • 02:26 You're talking about Jesus, you wonder, doesn't say in the
  • 02:30 New Testament, relative just going to Egypt that when he came
  • 02:33 out of Egypt to fulfill what it says, the deliverer shall come
  • 02:37 out of Egypt, is that who I'm talking about?
  • 02:40 No, I'm talking about Moshe Rabbeinu, Moses.
  • 02:45 In the Old Testament, the great deliverer came out of Egypt,
  • 02:51 didn't he?
  • 02:55 And he led people out of Egypt as well.
  • 02:58 Born in troubled times, they tried to kill him.
  • 03:00 It wasn't successful, however.
  • 03:03 This Moshe Rabbeinu, as he's called, Moshe, Moses who came up
  • 03:07 from the waters, really it has an Egyptian ring to it.
  • 03:10 Ramoses from Ramses, Tuthmosis, Thutmose from Moses.
  • 03:17 Moshe, referred to in the Jewish world as Moshe Rabbeinu,
  • 03:21 Moses our teacher, he comes out of Egypt.
  • 03:24 He's actually raised in the royal household of Egypt.
  • 03:27 He's eventually kicked out.
  • 03:30 He's going to run into the wilderness and his world is
  • 03:33 going to turn upside down.
  • 03:36 This man who had a call, for all intents and purposes it looked
  • 03:38 like he had a fall.
  • 03:42 And there he was in the wilderness, time had passed.
  • 03:46 And all of a sudden, in the third chapter of the book Shemot
  • 03:50 of Exodus, he hears a voice.
  • 03:52 Well, first he sees a miracle.
  • 03:55 He's a man of the outdoors, he sees a fire, and nothing's
  • 03:57 getting consumed.
  • 03:59 He hasn't seen that before.
  • 04:02 God uses the supernatural to get his attention.
  • 04:05 He looks there, he focuses, and out of the bush, "Moshe, Moshe."
  • 04:11 He hears a voice, in response to which he said,
  • 04:17 "Hineni, here am I."
  • 04:21 God works through circumstances, and his life
  • 04:24 looked abysmal.
  • 04:26 I'm sure when Moses was growing up, by the way, his mother said,
  • 04:29 "Mo, I know God's got great plans for your life."
  • 04:30 You know, he was given up for dead, put in a basket,
  • 04:32 he becomes a member of the royal household.
  • 04:35 And his mom said, "Moey, I'm telling you, son, God's got
  • 04:37 a great plan."
  • 04:39 He hits 40, nothing happens.
  • 04:41 He snaps, he winds up killing a few people, gets kicked out
  • 04:44 of Egypt, and here he is on the run in the middle of nowhere
  • 04:46 for 40 years.
  • 04:48 And then all of a sudden, he hears the voice, "Moshe, Moshe."
  • 04:54 And he says, "Hineni," which means, "Here am I."
  • 05:00 Would that we would heed the call, even if it seems like
  • 05:06 we've taken a fall.
  • 05:08 We hear the voice, the voice of propheny, the voice that
  • 05:11 beckons us toward God and into a new and preferred future.
  • 05:18 I liken the faith walk personally to what I refer to as
  • 05:21 a quest for a preferred future.
  • 05:24 That is to say we dare to believe that there's more than
  • 05:27 this to life.
  • 05:29 You might say it's easy for an 18-year-old, he's 80.
  • 05:33 Some of you are sitting there saying, "I've been on my couch
  • 05:35 for a long time out of the workplace, and all the goodies
  • 05:37 go to the young."
  • 05:40 Listen, you want to turn your attention toward the Lord,
  • 05:43 hear his voice, and hear what he calls you to do.
  • 05:51 I believe that God calls people today because when he works
  • 05:54 deliverance, he calls a person to be the instrument of it.
  • 06:00 That is the tool in God's hand, the great deliverer
  • 06:05 with a capital D.
  • 06:07 Seems to me that God prefers using a person.
  • 06:11 There's a Hebrew expression, [speaking in foreign language],
  • 06:13 "A great miracle happened there."
  • 06:16 God is in the business of doing miracles.
  • 06:19 In fact, Yeshua says, "If I don't do miracles, the works of
  • 06:21 my Father, then don't believe me.
  • 06:23 But if I do them, believe the works, that you may know and
  • 06:25 understand that I am in the Father and the Father is in me."
  • 06:29 People get a look at the divine by looking at miracle.
  • 06:32 People get a look at the divine as well by looking at God's Word
  • 06:37 and hearing his voice.
  • 06:41 In this segment, as in all the segments in this series,
  • 06:44 we're looking at deliverance.
  • 06:47 And here, we're looking at the call of he who is one
  • 06:50 of the Bible's favorites.
  • 06:55 ♪♪♪
  • 07:22 announcer: As the journey progresses, the tabernacle
  • 07:24 will be central to the life of the Israelites.
  • 07:28 It will be overseen by priests from the tribe of Levi and serve
  • 07:31 as the home to the ark when it's not in transit.
  • 07:36 And the Lord spake unto Moses, "Every man of the children of
  • 07:40 Israel shall camp around the tabernacle some distance from
  • 07:44 it, each man under his standard with the banner of his
  • 07:47 father's house."
  • 07:50 It was here in a desert encampment that the Israelites
  • 07:53 were transformed from a shapeless mass of people into a
  • 07:58 nation whose progress would be prescribed down to the
  • 08:01 minutest detail.
  • 08:04 The covenant was taking form.
  • 08:08 Jeffrey: First book I ever wrote was with this famous guy named
  • 08:11 Zola Levitt.
  • 08:14 I was working with him as an intern, and I wrote a book
  • 08:17 on the tabernacle called "The House That God Built."
  • 08:20 And I was so pleased that it was co-authored by Zola Levitt
  • 08:24 and Jeffrey Seif.
  • 08:26 And I think I even got the top billing, and I thought it was
  • 08:28 the cat's meow.
  • 08:31 Well, never mind my excitement, I'm excited to take you to the
  • 08:33 book of Exodus.
  • 08:36 And I'm sure the children of Israel were excited to get there
  • 08:38 considering the trauma and the drama.
  • 08:40 The trauma of bondage for hundreds of years.
  • 08:42 The drama, God raised up an individual, Moshe Rabbeinu,
  • 08:46 who went to Egypt and brought them out of Egypt.
  • 08:49 And they came into a wilderness, they came to a mountain, and
  • 08:53 they came to a place where it was time to learn to worship.
  • 08:56 Twenty-fifth chapter of Exodus, they are beckoned to build
  • 09:01 the Mischon is what it's referred to as, tabernacle.
  • 09:07 The word "tabernacle" comes from the Latin word meaning booth.
  • 09:10 I call it God's Winnebago, his RV, his traveling home in
  • 09:13 the wilderness.
  • 09:15 In chapter 25, verse 8, "Have them make a sanctuary for me,
  • 09:20 a holy place, so that I may dwell among them."
  • 09:25 And when we look here in the biblical text, we see that
  • 09:28 people were minded to contribute to the war effort.
  • 09:33 I love the picture here, by the way, and I want to say I love
  • 09:37 the pictures that we showed you.
  • 09:41 I think a picture's worth 1,000 words and just seeing those
  • 09:44 biblical dramas, do you know why you saw those dramas of
  • 09:48 the tabernacle?
  • 09:50 Everybody loved the picture of the tabernacle, except
  • 09:53 the sheep.
  • 09:55 I like to say the tabernacle's a great place for Jews, it's a
  • 09:58 lousy place for sheep.
  • 10:00 And I saw that sheep being drug off there.
  • 10:02 Of course, we didn't slaughter him, we're just looking at
  • 10:04 props, and we're looking at actors, and we're looking at it
  • 10:07 'cause you paid for it.
  • 10:09 And I want to thank you for that.
  • 10:11 Here, people sacrificially, they sacrificially filled the till in
  • 10:14 order that there could be a place where God's name dwells.
  • 10:16 It's TV space, and you pay for it, you through your offerings.
  • 10:25 In chapter 25, verse 2, "Tell Bnei-Yisrael to take up an
  • 10:28 offering from anyone whose heart compels them."
  • 10:33 No Madison Avenue stuff here, no tricks.
  • 10:35 We're not conning, we're just living and being and breathing.
  • 10:42 And God prompts individuals who care to share, and we can bring
  • 10:48 you dramas like that.
  • 10:52 But if you're a believer, it's not just to bring it to you.
  • 10:54 I want to thank you that we collectively together can bring
  • 10:57 it to the world.
  • 11:00 And oh, what a story it is.
  • 11:03 I want to speak about sacred space on the quick, and then in
  • 11:06 the next segment, I want to focus on one
  • 11:08 aspect particularly.
  • 11:11 But let me just say that in as much as I appreciate that you're
  • 11:14 watching TV to come and learn about biblical truths, it's
  • 11:18 important to have a place to go to, you know, where we dwell
  • 11:22 together, and cooperate in a joint venture, and worship
  • 11:26 the Lord.
  • 11:30 The word "worship" comes from a term meaning a ship of worth.
  • 11:33 In modern English, you know, worship means the kind of music
  • 11:37 gig that you have when you do church.
  • 11:41 Worship really comes from a ship of worth, that is to say
  • 11:44 individuals finding value and investing in.
  • 11:48 Individuals find value in the Lord and in linking up
  • 11:52 with others.
  • 11:54 Bunch of fellows in the same ship, that's the
  • 11:57 word "fellowship."
  • 11:59 And we share our resources, we share our talents.
  • 12:02 It's important not just to be alone drifting out there in
  • 12:04 the world.
  • 12:06 It seems to me that God brought these people out of the world,
  • 12:08 and one of the first things he did was to create a space here
  • 12:11 where they would gather and they would have the experience
  • 12:14 of worship.
  • 12:17 If you're out of sorts with all that, let me encourage you
  • 12:20 to renegotiate that.
  • 12:23 You're watching television right now, religious broadcasting,
  • 12:25 I'm appreciative of that.
  • 12:28 I hope you're getting good information, but transformation
  • 12:30 occurs when we link up with others, not just passively hear
  • 12:33 a voice of an able Bible teacher.
  • 12:36 Hopefully, there's some anointing in all this,
  • 12:38 and you're hearing God's voice and nudging.
  • 12:40 May he who spoke through the burning bush to Moses to beckon
  • 12:43 him to go do something, maybe he's talking to you.
  • 12:46 And let me encourage you to find that space where you can
  • 12:48 participate with others in building up the house of God,
  • 12:52 a testimony where he lives, and breathes, and moves.
  • 12:57 Thank you.

  • 13:39 Kirsten: I am so excited about this week's resource.
  • 13:43 For a donation of $35 or more, if you want to be more generous,
  • 13:47 we would not turn that down, we have these gorgeous
  • 13:51 Hebrew cards.
  • 13:55 Now, these are greeting cards.
  • 13:57 Let me--if I can show you real quick, it is hand water painted.
  • 14:01 Okay, each card isn't individually hand water painted,
  • 14:03 but they're all hand water painted.
  • 14:05 And blank inside, which is wonderful because they can be
  • 14:09 an anniversary card, they could be a birthday card, they can be
  • 14:12 a thank you card.
  • 14:14 Look at these, they're gorgeous.
  • 14:17 And the reason I'm telling you I love them, because I have gone
  • 14:20 through these at home so fast.
  • 14:23 It's a lost art.
  • 14:25 Letter writing, writing notes is a lost art.
  • 14:27 $35 or more as a resource, as a blessing to this ministry, these
  • 14:31 will come to your home.
  • 14:33 Here's one thing, I've just got to tell you this,
  • 14:35 it's a single stamp.
  • 14:37 Now, if you know what I mean, that matters.
  • 14:39 It's a big card, but you don't have to double stamp it.
  • 14:42 Single stamp, gorgeous cards.
  • 14:44 Order multiple packs, you won't be sorry.
  • 14:47 Now, let's go back to the story of Moses and see how the Ark of
  • 14:50 the Covenant was fashioned.
  • 14:53 announcer: And they shall make an ark of acacia wood.
  • 14:59 Acacia trees grow in Sinai's desert plains, and although the
  • 15:03 wood is lightweight, it is hard and extremely durable.
  • 15:06 The framework of the holy ark will be fashioned on this
  • 15:09 very wood.
  • 15:12 Bezalel is the craftsman.
  • 15:14 His assistant is Oholiab.
  • 15:18 And Bezalel overlaid the ark with pure gold within and
  • 15:21 without, and made a crown of gold to it round about.
  • 15:25 And he cast for it four rings of gold to be set by the four
  • 15:29 corners of it.
  • 15:32 And he made staves and overlaid them with gold.
  • 15:35 And he made the mercy seat of pure gold.
  • 15:39 And the cherubim spread out their wings on high and covered
  • 15:42 with their wings over the mercy seat.
  • 15:45 And Moses commanded the Levites, "Take this book of the law and
  • 15:49 put it inside the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord your God."
  • 15:55 Jeffrey: I think all Bible teachers are time travelers,
  • 16:00 that is to say we take people back.
  • 16:03 If we're going to the New Testament, it's 2,000 years.
  • 16:05 If we're going to the Exodus, it's 3,400 years give or take.
  • 16:08 We're going back.
  • 16:11 And storytellers not only tell it, we have the option with
  • 16:13 television to show it, and so you see the dramas that we show
  • 16:16 in conjunction with this series.
  • 16:19 But particularly now, there is a piece of furniture that belonged
  • 16:23 to the tabernacle that has amazed for centuries.
  • 16:28 And what am I referring to?
  • 16:30 The Ark of the Covenant.
  • 16:34 Producers in modernity have made millions on it.
  • 16:37 I know you're thinking of the "Raiders of the Lost Ark,"
  • 16:40 Indiana Jones, that whole notion of going back and looking
  • 16:43 for biblical artifacts.
  • 16:46 It really has occupied the attention of adventurers
  • 16:48 for years.
  • 16:51 And there are modern day Indiana Jones type on a search to find.
  • 16:54 And similarly, there are religious Jews that are
  • 16:57 on the search to build the accoutrements of the tabernacle
  • 17:01 according to what's prescribed in the Scripture as interpreted
  • 17:04 by the rabbis.
  • 17:06 Those that have gone to Israel with us, I mean,
  • 17:08 there's lots of tours.
  • 17:10 I mean, we want you to see the good news through the eyes
  • 17:12 of the Jews not just on TV, but when you get to the land itself.
  • 17:15 And in Israel, there's a place there, the Holy Land Institute
  • 17:18 where they're actually refabricating the paraphernalia
  • 17:22 that went with the tabernacle.
  • 17:24 But there's one piece of furniture they're not going
  • 17:27 to build.
  • 17:28 The menorah's been built, the candelabra,
  • 17:30 the table of shewbread, it's all been built.
  • 17:33 You come with us, we'll show you.
  • 17:35 That's been built, but the Ark of the Covenant, it's not going
  • 17:37 to be built, it's going to be found.
  • 17:40 And what is it?
  • 17:42 Well, it's found in Exodus chapter 25 here, verses 10
  • 17:46 through 21.
  • 17:48 "They are to make an ark, the Ark of the Covenant."
  • 17:52 Fascinating piece of furniture within which was placed certain
  • 17:59 religious items, the foremost the Ten Commandments themselves.
  • 18:05 It's overlaid with pure gold, it's a box if you will.
  • 18:09 And atop the box, there's guardian angels, cherubim.
  • 18:14 It's fascinating, we're told in verse 17 that we are to make an
  • 18:18 atonement cover of pure gold.
  • 18:21 And it's referred to, by the way, in Hebrews chapter 9, verse
  • 18:24 5 as the mercy seat.
  • 18:27 God will say in the text that he comes and dwells there.
  • 18:30 It's interesting, this is God's house.
  • 18:33 This is the master bedroom, the Holy of Holies.
  • 18:36 And this is the master bed, where he comes and dwells,
  • 18:40 and he dwells in a place that's referred to as atonement
  • 18:43 or forgiveness, or to use the Hebrews 9:5, mercy,
  • 18:49 a place to find mercy.
  • 18:51 For those minded to disparage the older testament and argue
  • 18:55 that he's just an angry God who's completely unforgiving,
  • 18:57 that says more about the bias of the person who's telling the
  • 19:00 story than it does about the literature itself.
  • 19:03 It looks like God is making a means here where people can come
  • 19:06 and find him and find mercy.
  • 19:09 We're told here, however, that it's guarded by these cherubim,
  • 19:12 these guardian angel types.
  • 19:14 It's a fascinating picture, and I'm glad that you could get
  • 19:16 a window into it through the dramas that we bring you.
  • 19:19 And I'm pleased to give it to you.
  • 19:22 You're the one that gave it to us, by the way, it's your
  • 19:24 donations that keep the cameras rolling and the actors acting.
  • 19:26 You know, one picture's worth 1,000 words, and so I'm just
  • 19:29 glad for you to see these spread out dramas and for you to get a
  • 19:33 window into these important particulars.
  • 19:37 Here, we're told in verse 20 the cherubim, these angelic types,
  • 19:42 are to spread out their wings above the atonement cover with
  • 19:46 their wings touching, this kind of guardian image.
  • 19:50 In a previous series, by the way, if you've been following
  • 19:52 us, thank you, you have been supporting us, doubly thank you.
  • 19:55 But if you just want to see it, we did a series on Eden sometime
  • 19:58 back that we spent a lot of time looking at these angelic figures
  • 20:02 that guarded the way to paradise.
  • 20:05 And here there's kind of a bit of Eden that's being retooled
  • 20:07 and remanufactured.
  • 20:10 Why is it happening?
  • 20:13 In verse 22, it's explicit, "I will meet with you there."
  • 20:21 You ever heard the expression "an appointment with destiny?"
  • 20:25 You ever felt a little lost in the world?
  • 20:28 Maybe you need to meet someone that can help you
  • 20:31 recover equilibrium.
  • 20:34 And I want you to know that irrespective of who you are and
  • 20:37 where you are and what you've done, you can be in a jail cell,
  • 20:42 in a prison cell with a death sentence on your head deservedly
  • 20:46 so and you're never getting out, you figure life is all gone for
  • 20:48 you, or you can be someone who just won the lottery and you're
  • 20:52 still feeling life's empty.
  • 20:54 Who you are, where you are isn't as important for my purposes as
  • 20:58 is to say to you that your life can be transformed if you will
  • 21:05 set up a meeting with the one who in verse 22 says, "I will
  • 21:10 meet you there."
  • 21:14 You might say, "That's the Old Testament, we live in the world
  • 21:16 of the new."
  • 21:18 I get that, but you know, a place to meet God, to find
  • 21:20 atonement, forgiveness, and mercy, that exists today and
  • 21:23 it's a prayer away.
  • 21:25 I hope you make peace with your creator and that you find a way,
  • 21:27 as it says in verse 22, to meet your creator at a place
  • 21:32 called atonement and mercy.
  • 21:36 Kirsten: I love the phrase "an appointment with destiny."
  • 21:41 You hit on that in your last segment, your teaching segment.
  • 21:45 And I chewed on that, if you will, for a while, that Moses
  • 21:49 had an appointment with destiny when he was in the basket and
  • 21:54 met Pharaoh's daughter.
  • 21:56 He had an appointment with destiny when he met the voice of
  • 22:00 God in the burning bush.
  • 22:02 He had an appointment with destiny when he came back to
  • 22:04 Pharaoh and said, "Let my people go."
  • 22:06 It's like the pattern of his life, an appointment
  • 22:08 with destiny.
  • 22:11 Jeffrey: Do you think it's true for biblical characters as much
  • 22:13 it is for people outside of the pages of biblical literature?
  • 22:16 Can you have an appointment with destiny?
  • 22:18 Can you, David?
  • 22:19 Can you?
  • 22:21 David: We love working with senior adults, and we have
  • 22:23 a passion for them.
  • 22:25 And I think a lot of them think that they're done with ministry,
  • 22:28 but some of their greatest days might be ahead of them
  • 22:32 just like Moses.
  • 22:33 Kirsten: That their appointment with destiny is still
  • 22:35 ahead, yeah.
  • 22:37 Jeffrey: Oh, that's good because I thought you'd say most people
  • 22:38 think, "Well, I've passed 65, that all the goodies belong to
  • 22:42 the younger generation, not the older set."
  • 22:44 You know how old Moses was when he got started in the game?
  • 22:47 Kirsten: Eighty.
  • 22:48 Jeffrey: There you go.
  • 22:50 Kirsten: I got one right from the professor.
  • 22:51 Jeffrey: I'm not trying to brag here, but I'm 65.
  • 22:53 Kirsten: You're close to that 80, aren't you?
  • 22:55 I'm just playing.
  • 22:56 Jeffrey: I'm getting there close.
  • 22:58 But at 65, I just went back to school.
  • 22:59 And I thought I would be the oldest person in the university,
  • 23:03 but I found that someone graduated with a PhD there
  • 23:05 at 92, so.
  • 23:07 Kirsten: Love that.
  • 23:08 David: We all have things ahead of us that we don't even know
  • 23:10 about, it's pretty amazing, you and us.
  • 23:12 Jeffrey: Look, I'm not really big on retirement.
  • 23:13 You know, one day I'll die, and when I die, I die.
  • 23:16 But I don't want to die until I die, that I just want to keep
  • 23:19 reaching over the horizon.
  • 23:22 There's lots of problems in this world.
  • 23:23 I want to be part of the cure, so do you.
  • 23:25 Let's follow Moses's example and keep working at it and
  • 23:28 keep working at it, you know?
  • 23:30 And keep our appointments with destiny.
  • 23:33 Kirsten: If I may say, one of the things you said,
  • 23:35 "Why do you love him so much?"
  • 23:37 At the beginning of the program, when I said Moses is
  • 23:38 my favorite, and you know this for years,
  • 23:40 that he didn't give up.
  • 23:44 He was 40 years in the wilderness, 40 years.
  • 23:49 But God knew for some reason that appointment with destiny
  • 23:53 was at his--you know, if it was exact time, 40th year.
  • 23:58 Some reason, God said, "Now is my time to meet with you."
  • 24:02 Jeffrey: You know, sometimes I think it makes sense later.
  • 24:04 You know, at 120 years age-- of age, you can look back
  • 24:07 over a life.
  • 24:09 He was thrown in a basket at the very beginning, very precarious,
  • 24:11 but it makes sense when you look at your life and you can say,
  • 24:14 "Look how God's used me and how he's kept his appointments
  • 24:16 with destiny."
  • 24:18 David: That's right.
  • 24:19 We love this story of Moses.
  • 24:20 Stay with us, we'll be right back.

  • 25:31 Kirsten: And she's the one who had the famous saying,
  • 25:33 "Where you go, I'll go, where you stay, I'll stay."
  • 25:34 Jeffrey: And you told that to David on more than one occasion.
  • 25:37 Kirsten: I did, for 30 years.
  • 25:39 David: Understatement, it's very true, yes.
  • 25:40 Jeffrey: I guess you meant it, but it's fascinating,
  • 25:42 Ruth's not the only one.
  • 25:44 A lot of people have had special appointments when they go walk
  • 25:46 in the land.
  • 25:49 It's fascinating, really you want to go.
  • 25:53 It's just you read about it in the Bible, just go there.
  • 25:56 If you don't go with us, okay, but just go for goodness sake.
  • 26:00 You really want to do it, super life changing.
