  • 01:17 David: We're so glad you joined us today, I'm David Hart.
  • 01:19 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 01:20 Jeffrey Seif: I am Jeffrey Seif, and do you know that there is
  • 01:24 a correlation between the word "disciple" and "discipline"?
  • 01:29 Interior disciplines, we'll look at some of that today, yeah?
  • 01:31 David: Where are you, Matthew 6?
  • 01:33 Is that where you're at?
  • 01:34 Jeffrey: Well, Matthew chapter 6, that's right.
  • 01:35 David: Is there a theme today?
  • 01:37 Jeffrey: That we do need to have a disciplined approach to
  • 01:40 life and, more important than just disciplining ourselves,
  • 01:44 isn't to go around and advertise,
  • 01:46 "Look how holy and pious and disciplined we are."
  • 01:49 It's we wanna have an internal locus of control where there's
  • 01:52 discipline, where there's focus, but not go around
  • 01:54 acting like we're the king of the universe.
  • 01:56 Kirsten: It's interesting 'cause it's discipline with humility.
  • 01:59 And we don't like that word "humility"
  • 02:01 very much anymore.
  • 02:02 Jeffrey: That's what I was reaching for.
  • 02:04 You said in two words what I--well, I couldn't
  • 02:05 say correctly in three paragraphs.
  • 02:07 It is right. Very good, it is true.
  • 02:09 Kirsten: It's going to be a good program.
  • 02:11 Jeffrey: You should have been teaching, not me.
  • 02:12 But it is true to discipline and humility.
  • 02:15 David: It's from Jesus, he taught about it
  • 02:16 right there in that Bible.
  • 02:17 Jeffrey: He surely did and, you know, we
  • 02:19 could use a little bit of both, some discipline
  • 02:21 and some humility, what do you think?
  • 02:23 Kirsten: Thank you for your teaching ahead of time.
  • 02:24 We appreciate it. Now let's go up to the Galilee.
  • 02:30 [speaking foreign language]
  • 02:40 [speaking foreign language]
  • 02:46 narrator: The Lord had made it quite clear.
  • 02:49 There is a place for fasting, but it is not in public,
  • 02:54 especially at the city gate.
  • 02:57 Disfiguring the face with ashes may be rewarded with attention,
  • 03:02 but the attention is the extent of the reward.
  • 03:09 When fasting, do so in secret, says the Lord,
  • 03:14 and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
  • 03:22 Jeffrey: Just to be sure, I looked at my driver's license
  • 03:26 the other day and looked at my date of birth.
  • 03:31 Being reminded that I'm 54 years old,
  • 03:34 it occurred to me that I didn't just start living.
  • 03:38 And one of the things that I've learned in 54 years of living is
  • 03:41 that things aren't always as they seem
  • 03:47 and neither are people.
  • 03:51 There's this little thing called pretense.
  • 03:54 There's a word "ostensibly," which means intended for show.
  • 03:59 There's the word "pretense."
  • 04:02 That and the word "pretend" are cut from the same cloth and
  • 04:06 speak to how some people present themselves as being something
  • 04:11 when they're really not.
  • 04:13 We all know that it happens in the world at large,
  • 04:16 but isn't it rather bizarre, odd,
  • 04:20 that it actually happens in the church?
  • 04:23 People parade about to be a little more righteous,
  • 04:28 a little more holy than they really are.
  • 04:32 I'm not impressed by that.
  • 04:33 Jesus isn't impressed by that.
  • 04:35 He said as much when he warned against those that fast and they
  • 04:39 just make their face--they make themselves to look just a
  • 04:44 certain way so others round about can go,
  • 04:47 "Ahh, what a righteous person.
  • 04:50 What a holy person."
  • 04:53 Jesus says, you know, they have the reward
  • 04:55 by virtue of their so doing.
  • 04:57 Payday comes every moment, that is to say what they're after is
  • 05:01 wanting to impress the world, and they get payment immediately
  • 05:05 for it because the world's impressed,
  • 05:07 or at least the shallow people in the world.
  • 05:11 If I understand the Lord correctly,
  • 05:12 better it is that we do things for him,
  • 05:15 not in order to garner the attention round about.
  • 05:19 The truth of the matter is that when we fast,
  • 05:21 when we do deny ourselves for Christ's sake,
  • 05:24 we have a way of cleaning ourselves out.
  • 05:27 Really, as you sit there right now, your body can be pumped
  • 05:32 full of sodium from the cokes you're drinking, from caffeine
  • 05:36 from the coffee, the sugar can be having effect
  • 05:39 on your mind, not just your body.
  • 05:41 There's so much junk in, and it affects not just the way we
  • 05:45 look, the way we feel, the way we think.
  • 05:49 Truth of the matter is we need to purge ourself some stuff to
  • 05:52 get some new perspective: new ideas,
  • 05:55 new ways of thinking, new ways of feeling.
  • 05:59 Fasting has great value beyond the momentary value of
  • 06:04 impressing the world how righteous we are.
  • 06:07 The value of denial like this is that we can kind of get in touch
  • 06:11 with ourselves, get in touch with the Lord,
  • 06:15 get in touch with our body, and this pays great dividends
  • 06:20 with the passage of time.
  • 06:22 Oh, don't be a hypocrite, friend.
  • 06:24 Jesus said, "Those that fast, they anoint
  • 06:27 themselves to impress others.
  • 06:29 They are, in effect, hypocrites,"
  • 06:31 in chapter 6, verse 18.
  • 06:34 The word "hypocrite," as I mentioned in another segment, in
  • 06:36 the Hebrew comes from the word for hyena.
  • 06:40 They make an absolute fool out of themselves.
  • 06:43 They ruin the moment, they ruin others by
  • 06:46 going around trying to impress.
  • 06:49 Let me encourage you, instead, to place a personal
  • 06:54 premium on holiness, righteousness.
  • 06:58 Let me encourage you to absorb some spiritual disciplines:
  • 07:02 prayer, fasting, charity-giving.
  • 07:07 There are different ways that different people can benefit for
  • 07:11 sacrificing themselves like this,
  • 07:13 never mind how others can derive some benefit from us.
  • 07:17 But let's remember, never, never,
  • 07:18 never do it for show.
  • 07:21 Let's give up various pleasures so we can pursue God's presence.
  • 07:28 [speaking foreign language]
  • 07:34 [speaking foreign language]
  • 07:41 narrator: "No one will notice," he whispers to himself.
  • 07:45 "This treasure of mine will remain a secret forever."
  • 07:50 But "Not so," says the Lord.
  • 07:54 "Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor
  • 07:59 rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
  • 08:05 For where your treasure is there your heart will be also."
  • 08:15 Jeffrey: I know some people, it's all about,
  • 08:18 quote, "Me and my money."
  • 08:20 And they love to behold it, they love to hold it,
  • 08:24 to seize it ever so close and hold it because
  • 08:27 they hold it so dearly.
  • 08:28 And they look, make sure no one sees
  • 08:32 and they bury it, they hide it.
  • 08:36 Oh, they just feel so good to possess it.
  • 08:41 Jesus said, "You know, we're better served to not wanna hold
  • 08:47 on so tight to the money because it does have a way of getting
  • 08:51 away from us, now doesn't it?"
  • 08:54 The Lord's saying, "Don't lay up for yourselves treasures on
  • 08:57 earth where thieves break in and steal."
  • 09:05 In another vocation, I served as a police officer in a patrol
  • 09:10 division, and had more than one occasion as a peace officer to
  • 09:14 deal with burglars in the middle of the night.
  • 09:18 And I can assure you that people can be very creative in the way
  • 09:22 they go after your assets.
  • 09:26 We've learned that now, haven't we, in our culture?
  • 09:30 Tragically, by the way, we've seen money just evaporate,
  • 09:35 horrible, through stealth, through intrigue.
  • 09:40 People work their way into our banks, money just dissipates.
  • 09:43 It's horrible.
  • 09:45 Some have gone to jail, some people have gotten away with it.
  • 09:48 Billions of dollars have just gotten away from us.
  • 09:53 Jesus said that we'd do well to invest money, not just
  • 09:56 look to seize it because you can't hold it forever anyway.
  • 10:01 Never, never, never, never in my life did I ever see a hearse
  • 10:06 making that final drive with a U-Haul in the back of it.
  • 10:10 The guy's just taking his treasures to the next world.
  • 10:13 Now, I know of some pharaohs that went through all
  • 10:15 kind of efforts to build these magnificent structures,
  • 10:21 underneath which they went to their grave with their treasures
  • 10:24 with them, and you know what?
  • 10:26 People even got in there.
  • 10:31 Better, friends, to be rich toward God,
  • 10:33 not just to invest and holding on to all of it, but to invest
  • 10:37 some of that in the kingdom.
  • 10:38 Jesus talks about this, does he not?
  • 10:40 Then he goes on to conclude the point,
  • 10:42 saying, "You know, where your treasure is,
  • 10:45 there will your heart be also."
  • 10:49 And I'd like to speak to that for a moment.
  • 10:51 I think that by understanding some of the original language
  • 10:54 and the original culture, that expression which you probably
  • 10:56 heard will make just a little more sense.
  • 11:00 Talk about the heart, where your heart is,
  • 11:02 you know, today if you have a heart problem,
  • 11:04 you'll go to a, quote, "cardiologist," someone who
  • 11:07 specializes in the heart, cardiology.
  • 11:11 The word "cardo" is a heart term, and it speaks
  • 11:15 of Main Street in old cities.
  • 11:17 You know, the Cardo was the main street that went through town
  • 11:20 and that's where everyone had their shops.
  • 11:23 It's where all the business was transacted, so in the Cardo,
  • 11:27 that's where you found the money.
  • 11:29 The money was in the city, and the money was at the Cardo,
  • 11:33 and people went there.
  • 11:34 So where your treasure is, that's where your cardo was.
  • 11:39 Jesus says, you know, where our treasure
  • 11:42 is, that's where our heart is.
  • 11:45 And a way to find out about what someone's heart's all about,
  • 11:48 just look and see, to the extent you can, what they do with this
  • 11:54 little thing called money.
  • 11:58 Pray tell, do we wanna hoard it and hold it ever so close?
  • 12:02 Or do we wanna be gracious?
  • 12:03 Do we wanna be kindly disposed to love other people,
  • 12:07 to advance the Lord's work?
  • 12:10 Listen to me in this, if you're willing to let go of
  • 12:12 some money to advance the Lord's work, you're gonna find
  • 12:15 the Lord bringing some more money back in.

  • 13:12 so many biblical events happened.

  • 13:34 David: I had a pastor friend this week contact me, and he
  • 13:36 said, "I really wanna go to Israel with you, folks.
  • 13:40 But I'm afraid financially that I'm
  • 13:42 not gonna be able to make it."
  • 13:43 And I told him, if he's supposed to go,
  • 13:46 God will help direct him and the funds will happen.
  • 13:50 We would love for you to join us on a tour to the Galilee where
  • 13:53 you've seen some great footage of this program.
  • 13:57 You can find all of the information on levitt.com.
  • 13:59 Kirsten: It's in the Galilee.
  • 14:01 That's been the backdrop for this whole series.
  • 14:03 But after Galilee and then Tiberias, we go to Jerusalem.
  • 14:07 We go to the Holy City, the city where the Lord himself will
  • 14:11 reign for a thousand years.
  • 14:13 The tours are incredible.
  • 14:15 We will save a seat on the bus for you.
  • 14:18 Now let's go back to the beautiful Galilee to hear
  • 14:21 more on the Beatitudes.
  • 14:26 [speaking foreign language]
  • 14:41 narrator: For some, it's been a good day at sea.
  • 14:45 Not so for others.
  • 14:48 It's in times like these, the Lord says,
  • 14:51 that one's light can pierce the prevailing darkness.
  • 14:55 The image is clear: barren nets, empty
  • 15:01 baskets, despondent friends.
  • 15:07 If therefore your eye is good,
  • 15:10 your whole body will be full of light.
  • 15:25 Jeffrey: If you're like me, you just don't
  • 15:26 really like stingy people.
  • 15:30 They frustrate me personally.
  • 15:32 God knows I really don't wanna be that way.
  • 15:34 Better it is to be sharing and caring.
  • 15:37 We know that to be the case, and we know as well that just not
  • 15:40 everybody's like that.
  • 15:43 There is a Hebrew expression called "Eyin raah," an evil eye,
  • 15:49 which interestingly harks to being stingy.
  • 15:51 They look at others and just don't care.
  • 15:54 Conversely, there's the expression,
  • 15:55 "Eyin tova," which means a good eye.
  • 15:59 Yeshua, Jesus, is employing this Hebrew expression
  • 16:03 here in the Matthean Gospel.
  • 16:06 In Matthew chapter 6, he speaks of something that's
  • 16:10 unintelligible apart from understanding
  • 16:14 the Hebrew background.
  • 16:16 He says, and I quote, "The lamp of the body is
  • 16:18 the eye," in verse 22.
  • 16:20 And in verse 23, he says, "And if the eye is bad,
  • 16:23 then you know that whole body is gonna be full of darkness."
  • 16:27 The point here, if you have an evil eye, an eyin raah, an
  • 16:30 evil eye, then if you're stingy, it's just going to affect you
  • 16:34 throughout, not just in the way you dispense your monies.
  • 16:37 That this is a Jewish expression,
  • 16:40 a Hebrew expression, is noted in the book of Proverbs, and Yeshua
  • 16:43 is harking back to this.
  • 16:45 In chapter 22, verse 9 he says, and I quote,
  • 16:48 "He who has a generous eye will be blessed,
  • 16:51 for he gives his bread to the poor."
  • 16:54 In other words, you see someone in need and you
  • 16:57 wanna respond to it.
  • 16:59 The Lord says if we're that way.
  • 17:02 You've perhaps heard the expression,
  • 17:04 "He--we'd do well to share our bread with the hungry.
  • 17:09 We'd do well to be responsive to needs round about,
  • 17:12 to people round about."
  • 17:14 Not everyone's like that.
  • 17:15 Some people are just selfish to the core and they hurt other
  • 17:19 people by their indifference.
  • 17:22 It should not be so among us.
  • 17:25 When Yeshua instructs disciples for what it is to be Christian,
  • 17:30 hear me, it's not just about creeds, it's about deeds.
  • 17:34 It's about doing good in the world.
  • 17:36 It's about being kindly disposed.
  • 17:39 It's about caring and sharing.
  • 17:42 And if we're generous, we give to the poor,
  • 17:45 we help others, we tithe, we give offerings,
  • 17:48 if our eye is good, our whole body will be full of light
  • 17:54 because we're caring and sharing and that lovingness about us
  • 17:57 draws others into that vortex, into that way of being.
  • 18:01 And we're just a delight to be around because
  • 18:03 we're caring, sharing people.
  • 18:05 Conversely, if we're not, if we're just Mr. and Mrs. Scrooge,
  • 18:09 you know, we're just all about coveting my money.
  • 18:12 It's all about me and my stuff, if I understand the Lord
  • 18:15 correctly, that's like our eye being dark,
  • 18:18 we're blind, and it imposes a kind of darkness in the body.
  • 18:23 You've ever heard the expression,
  • 18:24 "lighten up" or "let the sun shine in"?
  • 18:28 From the '70s, there's an old
  • 18:30 song, "Let the sun shine in."
  • 18:31 Listen, from Yeshua's perspective,
  • 18:34 from Jesus's perspective, let the sun shine in.
  • 18:37 Have an eye that's full of light.
  • 18:39 See what's happening in the world around you.
  • 18:42 Be open, be gracious, be caring and sharing,
  • 18:46 and you're gonna find, as you look out for others,
  • 18:48 as you're loving toward others, Jesus says that you'll get it
  • 18:52 back in return thirtyfold, sixtyfold,
  • 18:56 and a hundredfold, and you're gonna see,
  • 18:58 because you have an eyin tova, a good eye,
  • 19:01 your body's gonna be full of light and blessing,
  • 19:04 you're gonna be a blessing, and you are going
  • 19:06 to be blessed yourself.
  • 19:10 Kirsten: We have three grandkids, don't we?
  • 19:12 And they're very fun.
  • 19:14 We have Landon, he's 12, Bella Rose who's 2 1/2,
  • 19:18 and the baby is Ty David, but our 2 1/2-year-old, with our son
  • 19:22 Tyler, will learn some of the basic things that Jeff has been
  • 19:26 teaching today, and our son Tyler in particular will say to
  • 19:29 Bella, he'll say, "Sharing is--" and Bella says, "Caring."
  • 19:35 Even a 2 1/2-year-old knows what you taught today.
  • 19:40 It's simple, it's basic, way of living.
  • 19:44 Jeffrey: Listen, I think if we would just follow what our
  • 19:46 parents told us in nursery school.
  • 19:50 In our nursery school and kindergarten, teachers taught
  • 19:52 us that would be a good key to success in life right there.
  • 19:55 David: It makes us proud grandparents
  • 19:57 or parents with our kids.
  • 19:59 Kirsten: To get some of the--but you really
  • 20:01 taught--Jesus was teaching some basic human things that,
  • 20:04 unfortunately, some of us just don't get: to share,
  • 20:08 to be nice to each other, and to be kind, things like that.
  • 20:13 Jeffrey: Yes, and that kindness opens up heaven's door
  • 20:17 in ways that greed pushes away.
  • 20:20 Because God is kind.
  • 20:21 He's compassionate, revealed as such in the older Testament,
  • 20:25 incarnated as such in the New and the person of Jesus.
  • 20:29 And when we're caring and sharing,
  • 20:31 we have a way of opening up blessings into our own lives
  • 20:35 that wouldn't otherwise be there.
  • 20:37 Now, there's different ways to do that.
  • 20:38 We wanna make sure that we do do that and,
  • 20:41 by the way, having said that, if you would be gracious and kindly
  • 20:45 disposed to sow an investment in this ministry,
  • 20:49 I believe God would bless you for it,
  • 20:51 inasmuch as he's blessed me and us for caring and sharing and
  • 20:55 investing in the kingdom.
  • 20:56 When I ask for an offering, I don't--it's not
  • 20:59 that I don't put into the plate.
  • 21:00 I endeavor to be a giver with tithes and offerings, and I've
  • 21:03 found that it's better to be a blessing
  • 21:06 than it is to be blessed.
  • 21:07 And we do good to care to share.
  • 21:10 Kirsten: You also taught on the principle, and this is very
  • 21:12 interesting, I love this, that the lamp--or that the eye
  • 21:16 is a lamp of the body.
  • 21:18 And I've looked up scientific research on that also, and
  • 21:21 doctors can look at someone's eyes to see
  • 21:23 if they're healthy or not.
  • 21:25 It's just fascinating, and our oldest daughter-in-law,
  • 21:27 both of our girls, but our oldest daughter-in-law,
  • 21:30 I always say, "You have the most sparkly eyes."
  • 21:32 And I said, "She has God eyes."
  • 21:34 And I see what comes out of her.
  • 21:36 It's just very interesting for Jesus to teach that.
  • 21:38 He created our bodies, he created the eye, and you
  • 21:41 can read so much of a person if they're sharing and caring.
  • 21:44 Jeffrey: To that point, you know, you see
  • 21:46 some of these magazines, these models in "Vogue" or
  • 21:48 whatever, they look like death warmed over.
  • 21:49 Nice figures, nice clothing, but the eyes'll
  • 21:51 scare you to death, you know?
  • 21:53 So no countenance to speak of.
  • 21:55 But there's a kind of radiance with a God radiance.
  • 21:58 It's in the eyes. Good point.
  • 21:59 Kirsten: You can tell, but I love that he taught
  • 22:01 that he created the eyes and he created that we can tell.
  • 22:04 I just--I dunno. Great teaching, practical.
  • 22:07 Jeffrey: Well, thank you.
  • 22:08 David: All about humility, what you're teaching today.
  • 22:11 Much more to come. Stay with us.
  • 22:14 male announcer: Our resource this week: the
  • 22:16 Hebrew Names of God Cards.
  • 22:18 This collection includes 12 vibrant, high-quality art
  • 22:22 cards, each with Old and New Testament connections on
  • 22:25 the back, with Scripture and beautifully written devotionals.

  • 22:31 reflection, group discussion, or as a beautiful gift
  • 22:35 for your friend or pastor.
  • 22:37 For this resource and more, call 1-800-WONDERS
  • 22:41 or visit us at levitt.com.
  • 22:45 David: If you only watch us on television,
  • 22:47 you're missing additional content available only on our
  • 22:50 social media sites: Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
  • 22:54 You can always visit our website, which is home base for
  • 22:57 all of our ministry activities and information.

  • 23:08 Join us as we tour Israel and Petra.
  • 23:11 Please contact us for more information.
  • 23:13 We would love to hear from you.
  • 23:17 David: There's not a whole lot out there today
  • 23:18 that is free for you.
  • 23:20 The Levitt Letter is free for you.
  • 23:22 Kirsten, you write every month in the Levitt Letter.
  • 23:25 Kirsten: I do, and I write an article every month.
  • 23:26 Dave, you and I answer viewers' mail, there's a
  • 23:30 crossword puzzle in every Levitt Letter and a personal letter.
  • 23:34 Here's the thing: it's free for you to receive,
  • 23:37 but it costs us money.
  • 23:39 It costs the ministry money to send out.
  • 23:41 We have some wonderful people that say, "You know what?
  • 23:43 I would love to buy some Levitt Letters to send to people."
  • 23:46 A lot of prisoners receive our publications, and if that's laid
  • 23:50 on your heart to help other people receive this wonderful
  • 23:53 periodical, the Levitt Letter, with the great information about
  • 23:57 Israel, if the Lord lays it on your heart, get in touch
  • 24:00 with the ministry and we'll get you to the right person.
  • 24:03 Jeffrey: You know, it reminds me, salvation
  • 24:04 is free, but still someone had to pay for it.
  • 24:08 And the magazine.
  • 24:11 If people like the program on Jewish views,
  • 24:14 then if you like that, the magazine,
  • 24:16 it's like a--it's a news magazine with dozens and dozens
  • 24:20 and dozens, articles, cartoons, things for and about Israel,
  • 24:25 the Middle East, Bible prophecy, the news
  • 24:28 behind the news, and it's free.
  • 24:29 Of course, we print it and send it,
  • 24:32 and those that donate help--take care of all that.
  • 24:35 But we're all about getting the good news through the eyes of
  • 24:37 the Jews out to yous, and so thank you for helping us.
  • 24:39 David: Dramatic reenactments, your teaching
  • 24:41 in Israel, not free.
  • 24:43 Jeffrey: No, no, no, no, no. David: We need help.
  • 24:45 Jeffrey: And that's the distinguishing
  • 24:46 characteristics of the program.
  • 24:48 It's not just the pontificating from a minister.
  • 24:51 It's the dramatic reenactments, and we write--we like to give
  • 24:55 value added to what we do and if you find value in what we do,
  • 24:58 please help us do it and we'd appreciate.
  • 25:01 Kirsten: We have more next week to come and we appreciate
  • 25:04 everything that you do for this ministry and your wisdom and
  • 25:07 your insight, and we're just thankful to be with you.
  • 25:10 David: We end today's program with a song
  • 25:11 from our founder, Zola Levitt.
  • 25:13 Jeffrey: But first, as we say in Hebrew:
