  • 01:13 David Hart: Thank you so much for joining us today.
  • 01:15 I am David Hart.
  • 01:16 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart. Jeffrey Seif: I am Jeffrey Seif.
  • 01:18 And we are at one of the more
  • 01:20 famous Biblical sites today, yes?
  • 01:23 Kirsten: Tel Megiddo, another ancient Tel, right?
  • 01:27 Civilization, civilization, civilization.
  • 01:30 Jeffrey: Yes, known more popularly in modern culture
  • 01:33 as Armageddon.
  • 01:37 Megiddo, fascinating, you know, the end of the world,
  • 01:40 great battles, lots of layers of former battles,
  • 01:43 one big one coming, yes.
  • 01:45 Kirsten: Battles for that land, but today we're talking
  • 01:47 about the fact that that covenant was--that land was
  • 01:51 a covenant promise forever.
  • 01:54 So, regardless, right, of whatever battles come,
  • 01:57 God's gonna give that land to his people?
  • 02:00 Jeffrey: You know, it's like life's not without a struggle at
  • 02:02 the end of the day, you know, God gives it, but it's not
  • 02:04 a walk in the park.
  • 02:06 You have to contend for what he's given sometimes.
  • 02:07 Kirsten: And King David had to content for that too.
  • 02:10 Jeffrey: Yeah, they all did, we all do, you know,
  • 02:11 them and us to tell you the truth.
  • 02:13 Some people say, "Oh, look, life's not a struggle, just, you
  • 02:16 know, just listen to my speech and everything's gonna be great.
  • 02:19 Well, no, you know, even with the word of faith and I possess
  • 02:23 it, faith gets you through the challenges of the day,
  • 02:28 it's not a detour around it all.
  • 02:31 It is a struggle.
  • 02:32 David: We're gonna show you just a glimpse of the battles
  • 02:34 that King David fought for the promised land, and also, we're
  • 02:38 gonna take you to Doctor Sief's teaching at ancient Megiddo.
  • 02:45 narrator: King David sits on his throne, knowing full well
  • 02:48 that his kingdom had not come easily,
  • 02:51 except by the strength of the Lord.
  • 02:54 And it came to pass that David smote
  • 02:56 the Philistines and subdued them.
  • 02:59 And he smote Moab, and he slew the Syrians, two and twenty
  • 03:04 thousand men, and all they of Edom became David's
  • 03:09 servants, and the Lord preserved David withersoever he went.
  • 03:15 And David reigned over all Israel, and David executed
  • 03:19 judgement, and justice, unto all his people.
  • 03:23 And David's sons were chief rulers.
  • 03:31 Jeffrey: The Bible speaks of wars and rumor of wars,
  • 03:34 but for David it was more than just a rumor, 'cause he forged
  • 03:37 out a kingdom by dint of his determination, and with God's
  • 03:41 help of course, him being the anointed one of God.
  • 03:45 Well, right here, Armageddon, his son Solomon learned
  • 03:49 about that and more.
  • 03:51 Come with me now, as we go off to Armageddon.

  • 04:18 ♪♪♪
  • 04:29 Jeffrey: David carved it out, Solomon solidified it,
  • 04:34 to what exactly am I referring?
  • 04:38 Let me show you.
  • 04:44 Solomon's kingdom, something of a vast expanse,
  • 04:50 Megiddo is something at the heartland of it.
  • 04:52 He had to fortify, defend, and use this to hold off invading
  • 04:57 forces from the north and from the east,
  • 05:00 and to Megiddo we'll go.
  • 05:23 It's called the promised land, and the reason why it's called
  • 05:27 the promised land is God promised that land,
  • 05:31 and he promised it to a particular people
  • 05:34 who were destined to make a bid at a particular place.
  • 05:39 And if you're gonna fight to secure a toehold in a region,
  • 05:43 you're gonna need space to fight from, hence Megiddo here,
  • 05:46 Armageddon, a chariot city among other things, a place that has
  • 05:52 been a sanctuary for many a king, as evidenced by layer upon
  • 05:57 layer that harks to kings that came here, secured,
  • 06:01 resecured, and developed this piece of land.
  • 06:06 This piece of land is a fascinating piece, by the way.
  • 06:09 It extends on the one hand over toward Egypt.
  • 06:13 This promised land then extends upward towards the Euphrates,
  • 06:16 and it extends eastward by the way,
  • 06:18 beyond what we call the Jordan River today.
  • 06:22 It's a piece of land that was given to a particular person
  • 06:25 as I noted a minute ago, a promised land.
  • 06:29 Oh, it's one thing to say that it's mine, it's another thing
  • 06:32 to hold off belligerents that are minded to say
  • 06:34 that's not the case.
  • 06:36 And that tension, that back and forth has been the
  • 06:38 story of the ages, which is why, by the way, when you look with
  • 06:42 me in the Book of Chronicles, 2 Chronicles, chapter 9, verse 25,
  • 06:47 we're told that Solomon, who, under his administration the
  • 06:51 kingdom really was expanded, it had diminished some afterward.
  • 06:54 Under his administration, we speak here of thousands
  • 06:58 of stalls for horses, for chariots, and that Solomon,
  • 07:02 who will participate in what we call chariot cities here in the
  • 07:06 Biblical text, and why is that, because from cities like this,
  • 07:10 and along roads like this, forces had to go out to protect
  • 07:14 the world from belligerents, and Solomon did that during
  • 07:17 his administration certainly.
  • 07:20 We're told that, fortified as he was and strengthened as he was
  • 07:25 by certain outpost cities like this, we're told that Solomon
  • 07:27 reigned, in verse 26, over all the kings from the river,
  • 07:34 and the river here is harking to the Euphrates River.
  • 07:38 The word Ebrew, or Hebrew, means beyond the river, and the
  • 07:42 ancestors came from beyond the river and secured a place here
  • 07:47 that was bequeathed by God in the land of Kena'an, Canaan.
  • 07:51 And here we're told that the reign of Shelomoh, of Solomon,
  • 07:54 extended up to the river on the northern eastern front,
  • 07:59 to the land of the Plistim, the Philistines, and this harks,
  • 08:04 by the way, to the areas that run along the sea,
  • 08:08 where there were some major cities there.
  • 08:10 Gath is made familiar because of Goliath,
  • 08:13 Ashkelon, Ahdod, and others.
  • 08:15 The Plistim never had sway over this whole region,
  • 08:18 but they did have a toehold of it,
  • 08:20 but here the chronicler wants to say, on the one hand,
  • 08:23 the kingdom extended up to the Euphrates,
  • 08:26 and then in Canaan proper the coastland areas,
  • 08:29 what he calls, where the Plistim reign, and then
  • 08:32 he notes as well, as far as the border of Egypt.
  • 08:36 There's a river there that demarcates the border, and it
  • 08:40 shows something of an expanded kingdom, a kingdom that God gave
  • 08:45 to particular people, of Abraham, whom Lord said,
  • 08:49 "Come with me on a journey to a land that I will show you," and
  • 08:53 Abraham rolled the dice against an uncertain future, and he came
  • 08:57 and walked this land, and now some centuries later, now, I
  • 09:02 mean I'm harkening back to Solomon's era, many things have
  • 09:05 happened since, but we see the story of God watching over his
  • 09:09 word to perform it as a certain people struggle against sins in
  • 09:14 their own persons, against circumstances that impose upon
  • 09:17 them, difficulties, struggles, trials and all, God watches over
  • 09:22 his word to perform it, to give this land to a people, and to
  • 09:29 secure his people in his land as a testimony to his greatness,
  • 09:35 greatness that extended to the past, to the present, and will
  • 09:40 be known the more so in the future, as we consider the
  • 09:44 testimony of God at work in the world, here, the Eretz Israel,
  • 09:49 in the land of Israel.

  • 15:01 Let's go there right now.
  • 15:05 Jeffrey: This is the beautiful Golan Heights in
  • 15:07 northern Israel, an important part of David and Solomon's
  • 15:11 kingdom nearly 3,000 years ago.
  • 15:14 As noted on recent programs, this land was also included in
  • 15:18 God's covenant with Moses and Joshua as an inheritance
  • 15:22 for the children of Israel.
  • 15:24 David Dolan joins us now from this strategic site where he
  • 15:28 continues his chronology of the modern state of Israel.
  • 15:33 David Dolan: I'm standing in an Israeli army bunker
  • 15:35 on the Golan Heights on one of the highest hills here.
  • 15:38 Behind me is Damascus and Syria, about 35 miles away.
  • 15:42 We'll talk more about them in a few minutes.
  • 15:45 In the early 1950s, 650,000 Jews came to this land from Arab
  • 15:50 countries, many of them kicked out in anger because the Arabs
  • 15:53 were so upset that the state of Israel had been reborn,
  • 15:57 and they settled all over the country.
  • 15:59 Meanwhile, Arab terror attacks increased.
  • 16:01 Over 1,000 Jews were killed between 1951 and '55,
  • 16:05 400 of them from the Gaza Strip.
  • 16:08 Meanwhile in Egypt, Gamal Nasser forged ties with the
  • 16:11 Soviet Union and started to receive weapons from them.
  • 16:14 He nationalized the Suez Canal, which the British had built,
  • 16:18 angering Britain very, very much.
  • 16:20 A secret plan was devised between Britain, France,
  • 16:23 and Israel, to strike at Egyptian forces
  • 16:26 in the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula,
  • 16:29 and get back the Suez Canal.
  • 16:31 On October 29, 1956, that war begun.
  • 16:34 But the United States, Dwight Eisenhower
  • 16:37 was very upset over this.
  • 16:38 He feared an East-West clash, a superpower war, and he basically
  • 16:43 ordered France and Britain to call off their forces
  • 16:46 and Israel to stop its offensive.
  • 16:48 The Israelis had gotten all the way to the Suez Canal, and in
  • 16:52 early November a ceasefire was declared, and by March
  • 16:55 the next year Israeli forces had completely withdrawn from the
  • 16:58 land they captured, the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula.
  • 17:02 In the summer of 1964, the Arab countries and the Palestinians
  • 17:05 met together in Jerusalem to form a new organization,
  • 17:08 the Palestine Liberation Organization.
  • 17:11 Yasser Arafat was the head of the largest faction.
  • 17:13 In 1965 and '66, the Syrians stepped up their attacks
  • 17:17 on the Jewish communities in the Hula Valley below
  • 17:20 from this Golan Heights.
  • 17:22 In April of 1967, they actually destroyed an entire kibbutz,
  • 17:26 kibbutz Gadot.
  • 17:28 There were air battles, there were tank battles,
  • 17:30 meanwhile down in Egypt, Nasser was vowing openly
  • 17:33 that he would destroy Israel.
  • 17:35 He ordered UN forces withdrawn from the Sinai Peninsula
  • 17:38 in May of '67.
  • 17:40 He blockaded the Israeli port of Eilat, which is an act of war,
  • 17:44 and he told the world, "We're going to attack Israel."
  • 17:47 He made alliances with Iraq, with Syria, with Jordan,
  • 17:50 with other Arab countries.
  • 17:52 The Israelis were facing forces three times as large
  • 17:54 as they had, tank forces, air forces, all supplied
  • 17:57 by the Soviet Union.
  • 17:59 They feared they would be destroyed.
  • 18:01 So, they took a decision to take the first strike in a carefully
  • 18:04 calibrated attack, they stuck the Egyptian air force in its
  • 18:08 bases, 15 locations, wiped out 90% of Egyptian air force.
  • 18:12 They did the same thing behind me here in Syria
  • 18:14 later that afternoon.
  • 18:16 Their enemies were defenseless from the air effectively,
  • 18:19 it only took two days for Israel to capture the old city of
  • 18:22 Jerusalem, and by June 10, just five days after the war began,
  • 18:26 they had captured this entire Golan Heights, the entire West
  • 18:29 Bank, and the entire Sinai Peninsula up to the Suez Canal.
  • 18:34 The Arab world was shocked by Israel's lightning victory
  • 18:36 in the Six Day War.
  • 18:38 The Soviets were humiliated, and they broke
  • 18:40 all diplomatic ties with Israel.
  • 18:42 Israel, though, offered to pull out of most of the territory
  • 18:45 it captured.
  • 18:46 The Arab leaders met in September in Khartoum and said,
  • 18:48 "No negotiations, no peace with Israel,
  • 18:51 Israel must be destroyed."
  • 18:53 Right after that a war began called the War of Attrition,
  • 18:56 the Egyptians striking Israeli forces almost every day,
  • 18:58 and hundreds of soldiers were killed until that ended
  • 19:01 in the summer of 1970.
  • 19:03 The next war would be the Yom Kippur War.
  • 19:05 This time the Arabs didn't announce it in advance, they
  • 19:08 made secret plans to strike Israel on the holiest day
  • 19:10 of its year, Yom Kippur, when most Jews are fasting,
  • 19:13 television and radio is shut down.
  • 19:16 At noon the sirens went off on October 6, 1973,
  • 19:20 signaling that another war was about to begin.
  • 19:22 Men all over the country rushed to their positions,
  • 19:24 and at 2 p.m. in the afternoon the war began.
  • 19:27 Israel this time was on the run, they were pushed off of most of
  • 19:30 this Golan Heights, they were pushed back in the Sinai
  • 19:34 almost to their borders.
  • 19:35 It was a terrible war with very high casualties, but by the
  • 19:39 second week of the war Israel was turning the tide with help
  • 19:41 from the United States.
  • 19:43 The Soviets were very unhappy with this, and on October 25
  • 19:46 they began loading their own forces into aircraft with the
  • 19:50 object of coming here, their own men on the ground
  • 19:52 to aid Syria and Egypt.
  • 19:55 The United States called a nuclear alert
  • 19:57 in response to that, and the Soviets backed down
  • 20:00 and a ceasefire was declared.
  • 20:02 But Israel lost over 2,300 soldiers in that war, with
  • 20:06 many, many more casualties, and the government of Israel,
  • 20:09 humiliated by this defeat, initial defeat at least, would
  • 20:13 later be tossed out of office, and the Likud party
  • 20:16 would rise to power.
  • 20:18 The Labor party that had ruled since 1948 would be finished.

  • 21:55 and it takes you there, both Old and New Testaments.
  • 21:58 Oh, goodness, going there and seeing it come alive and
  • 22:03 experiencing it is extremely invigorating, and it's
  • 22:08 stimulating as well when you look at the struggles associated
  • 22:12 with the rebirth of the nation.
  • 22:14 And that certainly has been covered in this series
  • 22:18 with the wars, especially with our great journalist
  • 22:22 David Dolan, but it really is all so very fascinating.
  • 22:26 David H: Some people are worried about maybe traveling
  • 22:27 there right now, watching the news, but it's peaceful.
  • 22:32 Jeffrey: Yes, people are--I think we have a default position
  • 22:36 to worry, and I mention this, that every time people go to
  • 22:40 Israel to tour, their friends and family, they're afraid
  • 22:43 they're gonna get blown up by a bomb, and they're so surprised
  • 22:46 when they get there.
  • 22:48 You know, even people that are disinclined to support Israel,
  • 22:52 my estranged Arab cousin friends, still, though they're
  • 22:56 displeased by the nation state of Israel, they still realize
  • 23:01 they derive their sustenance from it, livelihoods,
  • 23:05 so they don't want it to evaporate,
  • 23:07 because that's what's paying for homes and food and family needs.
  • 23:13 People making a living, people coming from the West Bank,
  • 23:17 coming into Israel, and making a living off the modern state.
  • 23:20 Kirsten: Explain that really quick.
  • 23:22 I understand the term, because we're talking about the land,
  • 23:25 and some people, if you're not there you might not really
  • 23:28 understand the West Bank, can you explain that really quick?
  • 23:32 It's geographical, but it's also what is happening right there.
  • 23:36 Jeffrey: Well, the West Bank of the Jordan River,
  • 23:39 there's an area there that's carved out,
  • 23:42 that's been given over to Palestinian authorities
  • 23:46 to regulate their affairs therein,
  • 23:49 inasmuch as the Gaza Strip was given over to Palestinian
  • 23:54 authorities, much as the entire Sinai Peninsula
  • 23:58 was given back to Egypt.
  • 24:00 Jewish people are game to explore what does it take
  • 24:03 to make peace, let's try this, let's try that, and what we call
  • 24:08 the West Bank, there are Jews that live in there, but
  • 24:11 principally we're looking at Palestinian Arabs,
  • 24:15 who then make their way into Israel to work with permits,
  • 24:19 and then go there at home at the end of the day.
  • 24:21 Kirsten: It's been fascinating to learn from you
  • 24:23 the history of the land.
  • 24:26 David brought a lot of World War II information about the wars
  • 24:29 and also the future, and it is so vitally important that we do
  • 24:34 what we--we literally do what we say at the end of our program,
  • 24:39 is to keep praying for the peace of Jerusalem and all of Israel.
  • 24:44 That's our calling, and it's very important, isn't it?
  • 24:47 Jeffrey: Yes, I believe so.
  • 24:48 David H: We have more to come in this series, Eretz Israel,
  • 24:51 but we always end our program with a song from our founder,
  • 24:54 Zola Levitt, and--
  • 24:56 Jeffrey: And now I'm gonna do what the lady said.
  • 24:57 Sha'alu Shalom Yerushalayim.
  • 25:00 Kirsten: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
