Bible teaching with an emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity

This program is not yet availiable for viewing because it has not yet aired.

Episode: “Ezekiel”
This exiled prophet saw dramatic visions of transformation: dry bones into living people, and water flowing from the dry mountaintop. God’s grace and mercy fills people with a new Spirit and new life.
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.

  • 01:47 Kirsten: I know. There's a visionary.

  • 01:54 announcer: In 593 B.C., Ezekiel was among the exiles
  • 01:58 by the river Chebar in Babylonia, and the heavens
  • 02:04 were opened, and he saw visions of God.
  • 02:08 A whirlwind came out of the north,
  • 02:10 and a brightness was about him.
  • 02:12 ♪♪♪
  • 02:20 Jeffrey: Hebrews call it the "galut."
  • 02:23 It's a word for "exile."
  • 02:26 It's used for dispossessed,
  • 02:28 thrown out of the ancestral homeland.
  • 02:30 They, in effect, were refugees.
  • 02:33 Among them was a fellow named Ezekiel.
  • 02:37 Comes from two Hebrew words, "El," as a suffix--
  • 02:40 or as a prefix, "God," and then, "chazaq,"
  • 02:45 which means "strength."
  • 02:48 And they were in such a bind, in such a corner,
  • 02:51 they were gonna need all the strength they could get.
  • 03:00 I don't know if you've ever been in a corner--I have.
  • 03:03 I've never been exiled, as in removed from ancestral homeland,
  • 03:08 and if you think for a moment, most people never traveled far.
  • 03:11 Here, they're over 500 miles away from the place of origin,
  • 03:15 uprooted from ancestral lands.
  • 03:16 They were really in a bad way, thus in a corner.
  • 03:20 They needed help, and the question
  • 03:23 was "Is there deliverance?"
  • 03:29 The question is "Is God a deliverer?"
  • 03:35 And there was a man who, in no uncertain terms, said, "Yes."
  • 03:41 He saw how they were gonna get out of a corner,
  • 03:44 and he envisioned a way that they could go on a quest
  • 03:49 for the preferred future.
  • 03:53 His story is in the book that bears his name.
  • 03:58 It starts off, in the first chapter,
  • 03:59 giving voice to the exile that I just described,
  • 04:02 and noting that Ezekiel is among them.
  • 04:05 But unbeknownst to them, God was with them, too,
  • 04:12 and when you're exiled, when you're repressed,
  • 04:15 depressed, so pressed, and oppressed,
  • 04:17 you don't think God is with you because what comes
  • 04:19 to mind forever is your misery, not the hope.
  • 04:26 But then we see, when we open up the book of hope,
  • 04:29 the Bible, we're told in chapter 1, verse 1...
  • 04:33 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 04:36 "The heavens opened up."
  • 04:40 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 04:43 "And I saw visions of God."
  • 04:49 In a flash.
  • 04:52 Prophecy comes different ways.
  • 04:54 The message of deliverance comes in more than one cart.
  • 04:57 I mentioned that Isaiah was more,
  • 04:59 just rolling out the prophetic word.
  • 05:02 Ezekiel had a prophetic word, but he wasn't simply a "navi,"
  • 05:06 which means to, in effect, "bubble forth"
  • 05:08 or "bring it forth."
  • 05:09 He was a "ro'eh." He was a seer.
  • 05:11 He was a visionary.
  • 05:14 You know, parenthetically, in church work today,
  • 05:15 there are some churches that just roll
  • 05:17 out the biblical principles.
  • 05:18 Some give voice to the Spirit in vision.
  • 05:20 They each say they're crazy.
  • 05:22 I say they both have their place.
  • 05:24 Both are found in the biblical testimony.
  • 05:27 Ezekiel has visions, and what he envisions
  • 05:33 is so very transformative.
  • 05:35 He sees that individuals will come back to life
  • 05:40 in their inner persons.
  • 05:42 He spoke of God giving people a new heart
  • 05:45 and a new spirit in chapter 36, verse 26.
  • 05:49 And in proximity to that, he spoke,
  • 05:52 not just of a personal renewal, but a national revival
  • 05:56 that has prophetic implications that speaks to the very day
  • 06:02 when Jews, all but dead and gone, arise from ruin
  • 06:09 and retake their place as a people of destiny.

  • 08:09 Jeffrey: In a previous era, a literary giant in America
  • 08:14 named John Steinbeck, wrote a famous novel called
  • 08:18 "The Grapes of Wrath."
  • 08:21 Therein, he was underscoring the plight of displaced migrants.
  • 08:26 I mention that to say never mind this modern literary giant.
  • 08:31 Here we have a giant in an ancient world that gave voice
  • 08:35 not just to a wrath, to a feeling of dispossession
  • 08:40 and discouragement, but he envisioned a new world to come,
  • 08:45 new life on the bones.
  • 08:47 In chapter 37, verse 1, in this man whose name
  • 08:52 is "God is strength," we read...
  • 08:57 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 08:59 That is, "and came"
  • 09:00 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 09:02 "on me,"
  • 09:04 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 09:05 "the hand of the Lord."
  • 09:08 Sounds like an old religious expression at church,
  • 09:10 you know, "The hand of the Lord was upon me, brother."
  • 09:12 Don't mock it, because good things come when God comes,
  • 09:21 and here the visionary sees a vision.
  • 09:26 We'll go on and unpack it.
  • 09:27 He says, "The Ruach Adonai," the Spirit of God,
  • 09:31 "carried me and set me down."
  • 09:33 And, again, today, when people talk of "The Spirit of God
  • 09:36 was upon me," people go, "Ha ha ha,
  • 09:38 that's just modern religion, those crazy people."
  • 09:40 Well, they would've said it of him.
  • 09:43 It's biblical language. People don't understand it.
  • 09:46 I get it.
  • 09:47 But better not to mock it.
  • 09:49 This person envisions himself placed down in the middle
  • 09:52 of a valley, one that was full of bones scattered all about.
  • 10:00 The picture that you saw, before I started opening my mouth,
  • 10:04 was so good.
  • 10:05 I actually regretted I have to talk afterward.
  • 10:07 It is so dramatic.
  • 10:10 A picture tells a thousand words,
  • 10:13 and there you see of bones coming back to life.
  • 10:17 They're recycled. They're reinvigorated.
  • 10:20 They take on flesh and spirit.
  • 10:23 They come alive, and then they're nationalized too.
  • 10:26 They become an army.
  • 10:27 Now, I know people take issue with that because they
  • 10:29 don't like to see that in religion, but it's in the Book.
  • 10:33 Let's take a look at the Book.
  • 10:34 We're told the Spirit is upon him.
  • 10:37 He set down in the valley, and verse 2,
  • 10:39 he led him all around, and there was very many on the floor,
  • 10:43 many bones that were very dry.
  • 10:47 "And he said to me," in verse 3, "Son of man,
  • 10:50 can these bones live?"
  • 10:53 Now, listen, if God asked you a question,
  • 10:54 I don't think it's that he doesn't know the answer.
  • 10:56 "I'm a little confused, Zeke, what do you say?
  • 10:58 Can you help me out here?"
  • 10:59 No, it's for rhetorical purposes.
  • 11:01 One would think not.
  • 11:03 In other words, when you're--when it's that way,
  • 11:07 when you're dead and gone for so long,
  • 11:10 it all deteriorates.
  • 11:12 There's nothin' left.
  • 11:13 The question of "Is there any hope for this?"
  • 11:15 It sounds like a ridiculous question,
  • 11:18 but God majors in turning around the ridiculous
  • 11:22 because he is a great deliverer.
  • 11:26 "I answered, Lord, who know," and verse 4,
  • 11:28 the word is "Speak to them.
  • 11:32 Prophesy and say, 'Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.'"
  • 11:38 Truth be known, there can be people that are hearing within
  • 11:42 the sound of my voice--you know, I mean,
  • 11:44 a pastor can look out over the congregation
  • 11:47 and see who's there and see who's paying attention.
  • 11:49 This all goes coast to coast.
  • 11:51 I don't know who I'm talkin' to.
  • 11:52 I don't know if I find you in a hotel room
  • 11:54 with a gun to your head.
  • 11:56 I don't know if I find you behind your desk after you just
  • 11:58 got a check for $30 million in a contract you signed.
  • 12:00 I just don't know, but I know this.
  • 12:03 I know this, that people do well when they hear
  • 12:08 the Word of the Lord.
  • 12:10 "Behold," he says, "I will cause Ruach to enter into you.
  • 12:15 I will cause the Spirit to come into you,
  • 12:17 and you will live."
  • 12:19 Today people talk about "I received the Holy Spirit,
  • 12:21 and I came alive," and people say,
  • 12:23 "That's just hokey religion."
  • 12:24 A Jewish person says, "I can't buy into that.
  • 12:26 I'm a Jew.
  • 12:28 I'm not a Pentecostal."
  • 12:29 Well, the last I checked, Ezekiel was a Jew too.
  • 12:31 This is the Old Testament.
  • 12:32 I'm not reading you from something in the New.
  • 12:36 That God prophesies deliverance, and he uses the language
  • 12:39 of the Spirit coming in, "I will put tendons on you,
  • 12:43 put flesh on you," and then he says,
  • 12:46 "I will breathe on you." Someone picked up on that.
  • 12:55 You might recall when he came back to life,
  • 12:57 and I'm referencing to the way Yeshua,
  • 12:59 the way Jesus is noted in the Johannine Gospel.
  • 13:02 It says he enters into a room
  • 13:04 and, possibly so, he just kind of goes through the wall,
  • 13:07 and it says, "He breathed on them,
  • 13:10 and said, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.'"
  • 13:14 Sounds so un-Jewish, of course, Jesus was a Jew.
  • 13:18 They were Jewish, and it sounds a lot like this,
  • 13:21 and not only is the remaking of life characterized by...
  • 13:26 [blowing]
  • 13:28 new breath, but if you roll the tape back
  • 13:30 to the beginning in early Genesis, it says of Adam,
  • 13:34 Adam, it says, "He breathed into his nostrils
  • 13:38 the breath of life, and man became a living being."
  • 13:44 This is the very birth of humanity.
  • 13:49 I know what happens with the birth of humanity.
  • 13:51 We come out of our mother's womb,
  • 13:52 and we begin living our lives.
  • 13:54 It doesn't always turn out right.
  • 13:56 Listen to me: If being born hasn't been all that
  • 14:01 it's cracked up to be, try being born again.

  • 15:32 Jeffrey: You know, if you think about it,
  • 15:33 a vine is simply a machine through which flat water
  • 15:40 is turned into grapes.
  • 15:41 It's turned into wine. It's interesting.
  • 15:44 The Johannine Gospel begins with Jesus turning water into wine,
  • 15:48 and then, his last discourse at the very end,
  • 15:50 he talks about how we, in effect,
  • 15:52 are the vine.
  • 15:53 There's a kind of transformation from the flat to the energized,
  • 15:57 and that's what Ezekiel sees.
  • 16:02 I'm interested in the 47th chapter here.
  • 16:06 I wanna talk about the essence of life,
  • 16:08 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 16:11 in Hebrew, "a river of life."
  • 16:13 It goes right back to...
  • 16:15 [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 16:17 to paradise.
  • 16:18 We're told here in the 47th chapter,
  • 16:20 we're told this prophet of the galut,
  • 16:23 this exiled prophet, envisions Israel reconstituted
  • 16:29 as a nation state, and then he sees the temple rebuilt therein.
  • 16:34 He not only envisions that.
  • 16:36 He sees water coming from the house.
  • 16:40 He says, "Then he brought me back to the door of the house,"
  • 16:43 in 47:1, "and water was flowing out
  • 16:47 from underneath the threshold."
  • 16:49 This isn't your garden variety, you know,
  • 16:51 the plumbing breaks in the bathroom and the water's
  • 16:53 coming out from underneath the door.
  • 16:55 This is something else.
  • 16:56 There's a picture here that develops in the literature where
  • 17:00 it's God's restored house.
  • 17:02 From there comes water to bring new life to the dry lands.
  • 17:07 It says it explicitly.
  • 17:09 Now, if you were to go to Israel,
  • 17:10 you would see it pictorially.
  • 17:12 If you go to the Temple Mount, which is right there
  • 17:16 at the Zenith, the high point of the city,
  • 17:19 and you were to go east from there,
  • 17:21 it falls off dramatically.
  • 17:23 It turns into a wilderness, if you ever heard the term
  • 17:26 "wilderness of Judea," and it descends all
  • 17:29 the way to the Dead Sea.
  • 17:32 If you were to read through the prophet Ezekiel in this chapter,
  • 17:35 you'd see that water comes from out of this temple,
  • 17:40 and it goes down through the wilderness,
  • 17:43 through the dry lands, and it brings new things to life
  • 17:50 because, wherever the water goes, life comes.
  • 17:54 It's a beautiful story.
  • 17:57 It's a picture that tells a thousand words.
  • 18:01 It's depicted in the literature, not just here.
  • 18:03 If you go to Revelation chapter 22,
  • 18:08 this visionary sees the river of the water of life coming
  • 18:14 out from the Holy City, bringing new life.
  • 18:19 Now, there's a snapshot here, and there's a snapshot there.
  • 18:25 It's both testified to in the newer testament
  • 18:28 and the older testament.
  • 18:30 My question is "Is it testified to you?"
  • 18:34 I'm less interested in the story in the book as much
  • 18:38 as I'm interested now in whether this story resonates
  • 18:42 in the pages of your own diary.
  • 18:46 I want you to know that the flat water can be turned to wine.
  • 18:51 It needs energized.
  • 18:53 This prophet Ezekiel sees the source: God's grace and mercy
  • 18:57 coming to a ruined people, filling them with the Spirit
  • 19:00 and filling them with new life.
  • 19:03 That's not a story from yesterday's pages.

  • 19:25 We turn on the news and see the Jews.
  • 19:27 We think of personal restoration.
  • 19:30 We learn that God's in the restoration business.

  • 19:33 Jeffrey: So much--all of it.
  • 19:35 Kirsten: Death to life.
  • 19:36 1940s, swampland, nothing growing.
  • 19:44 No one there. Ezekiel saw that.
  • 19:45 He saw the resurrection of Israel.
  • 19:46 Fascinating to me.
  • 19:48 Jeffrey: If God can do it for a nation,
  • 19:49 what can he do for us in a hotel room where you are right now,
  • 19:52 in a living room?
  • 19:53 If he can just completely transform a nation,
  • 19:56 I mean, the possibilities are boundless for a new life.
  • 20:00 Kirsten: Right, and Ezekiel also saw the future temple,
  • 20:03 and they were in captivity, so he just had
  • 20:07 so many prophetic visions.
  • 20:09 Jeffrey: You know, we got a question about that too.
  • 20:12 People are interested in when is the temple gonna be rebuilt
  • 20:15 because that's, like, the countdown to,
  • 20:17 you know, that's--and they're interested in that in Israel
  • 20:21 today, you know, retooling the accoutrements of the temple.
  • 20:25 All that's there.
  • 20:26 Years ago, our viewers sent us to a field-training site
  • 20:30 where they were training Levites to officiate sacrifices.
  • 20:34 There's so much happening there in Israel, you know.
  • 20:36 Kirsten: That's why it's so vitally important to go.
  • 20:39 I mean, that's part of what we do.
  • 20:40 Go there, see what's happening because people--
  • 20:44 and it's so very interesting.
  • 20:46 When we take people on tours--we take all of you on tours--
  • 20:48 so many people think Israel is dry and just desert,
  • 20:53 and they have no idea because the old pictures portrayed it,
  • 20:57 I mean, showed it, actually, the truth,
  • 20:58 not just portrayed it that way.
  • 20:59 But when we go, when we drive through the Jordan Valley,

  • 21:20 Jeffrey: Yes, that's why I'm so appreciative of all of you,
  • 21:24 by the way.
  • 21:25 There's a lot of different programs on television worth
  • 21:27 seeing, and the ethos of this one is taking people
  • 21:31 to the set behind us here, Jerusalem itself.
  • 21:34 There's so much happening in the world today that correlates
  • 21:38 to the Word yesterday, and we'd like you to see it.
  • 21:41 Of course, as per David and Kirsten's point,
  • 21:43 we'd love to take you to Israel, but we're gonna bring you every
  • 21:46 time you turn on the television.

  • 22:58 David: Kirsten and I have made some literal long-life
  • 23:01 friends from going on a Zola tour.
  • 23:04 Please consider joining us.
  • 23:06 We go both in the fall and the spring.
  • 23:08 We worship with you. We eat together.
  • 23:11 Kirsten: We eat a lot together.
  • 23:13 David: And we would love to make friends with you on a tour.
  • 23:16 All the information is right here on levitt.com.
  • 23:18 Kirsten: Ezekiel, thousands of years ago,
  • 23:21 saw the restoration of Israel, and you yourself right now
  • 23:26 can go and see the fulfilled prophecy
  • 23:30 that you taught about today.
  • 23:31 Jeffrey: Yes, that's true.
  • 23:32 It's like walking in the pages of the Bible.
  • 23:34 In so many ways, it is.
  • 23:35 Kirsten: It is, and as God restored Israel,
  • 23:38 he also can restore our lives.
  • 23:40 We're not beyond being restored ourselves.
  • 23:44 Jeffrey: Well, preach it, girl.
  • 23:45 That's the absolute God's honest truth.
  • 23:47 Kirsten: You might be in a place right now
  • 23:49 where you feel like your life is dry, desolate.
  • 23:53 There's no life.
  • 23:54 I promise you, just as you saw in that first video today
  • 23:57 in our program that God himself brought on flesh to dry bones,
  • 24:02 he can do the same for you today.
  • 24:04 Right now, wherever you are,
  • 24:06 wherever you're listening from, believe that.
  • 24:09 Ask him to come into your life.
  • 24:11 Ask him to change the dry, parched life that you're living
  • 24:15 right now, and just watch what he'll do.
  • 24:18 David: Amen.
  • 24:20 We end this program today with a song
  • 24:21 from our founder, Zola Levitt.
  • 24:22 The song says, "Would God I Had Died for Thee."
  • 24:26 Jeffrey: And a word from God... [speaking in Hebrew]
  • 24:31 David: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
