  • 00:57  SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:58 I'M GLAD YOU JOINED US   FOR ANOTHER OF OUR
  • 01:00 TELL IT ON THE  MOUNTAIN'S PROGRAMS.
  • 01:03 TONIGHT WE ARE  GOING TO MOUNT TABOR
  • 01:05  WHICH IS VERY FAMOUS AS THE MOUNT OF TRANSFIGURATION
  • 01:08  ALTHOUGH SOME   DISAGREE WITH THAT.
  • 01:09  IN ANY CASE, IT IS QUITE A SITE OF PROPHECY.
  • 01:13   IN THE PAST AND OF COURSE,
  • 01:15  BEING IN THE  VALLEY OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 01:16  IT HAS FUTURE   PROPHECY TO HAPPEN.
  • 01:20  A 3500 YEAR CAREER OF  PROPHECY FULFILLMENTS
  • 01:24 UP TO THE START  OF THE THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM.
  • 01:27 NOW, THE BIBLE IS STILL BEING FULFILLED ALL OF THE TIME.
  • 01:29   DAVID DOLAN WILL BE  TALKING WITH US, TOO,
  • 01:31    TALKING ABOUT THE  PROPHECY FULFILLMENT
  • 01:33 HAVING TO DO WITH GOD RESTORING  HIS PEOPLE BACK TO THE LAND.
  • 01:37  WE'LL TALK WITH SOME   IMMIGRANTS ON THIS PROGRAM.
  • 01:39    AND NOW, TO MOUNT TABOR.
  • 01:41    [ music playing ]
  • 01:52   OUR LOCATION TODAY    IS THE FAMOUS MOUNT TABOR
  • 01:55 WHICH IS IN THE MIDDLE  OF THE VALLEY OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 01:58 THERE IS A LOT OF ACTIVITY HERE.
  • 02:00  AIRPLANES AND PEOPLE AND TRAFFIC COMING ALL DAY LONG.
  • 02:03    AS I WALKED DOWN    TO DO THIS FILM,
  • 02:05 I WAS GREETED BY GERMAN   PILGRIMS WHO SHOOK MY HAND
  • 02:08 AND TOOK ME FOR A PRIEST OF SOME KIND.
  • 02:12 IT WOULDN'T BE UNUSUAL TO SEE UP HERE.
  • 02:14  THERE IS A MONASTERY   AND SO ON, ON MOUNT TABOR.
  • 02:17   AND IT FIGURES IN THE STORY   OF ISRAEL ON MANY PERIODS.
  • 02:21   WE CAN GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO WHEN DEBORAH, THE PROPHETESS
  • 02:25 WAS THE JUDGE OF ISRAEL AND THE TRANSFIGURATION
  • 02:29  WAS ON THIS MOUNTAIN ALTHOUGH SOME ARGUE THE MOUNTAIN
  • 02:33  IN THE NORTH,  MOUNT HERMAN
  • 02:34  BUT ANYWAY, IT WAS ON ONE OF THESE HIGH MOUNTAINS IN GALILEE.
  • 02:38 AND OF COURSE,    THE VALLEY OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 02:41    WHICH YOU CAN SEE   BEHIND ME WILL BE THE SITE
  • 02:44   OF THAT LAST GREAT BATTLE.
  • 02:47   BACK IN THE    TIME OF DEBORAH,
  • 02:49   WE -- WE SEE THE PRINCIPLE  BIBLICAL PROPHECY WORKED OUT.
  • 02:53  THERE ARE PROPHECIES IN THE BIBLE THAT ARE VERY OLD
  • 02:56   AND WERE FULFILLED    IN ANCIENT TIMES.
  • 02:58  THE BIBLICAL RECORD SHOWS IT.
  • 03:00  FIRST, THE PROPHECY IS GIVEN   AND THEN A BATTLE,
  • 03:03 AS IN THIS CASE  AND THEN THE RESULT.
  • 03:06   DEBORAH ADVISED HER
  • 03:08  GENERAL BARAK TO -- SHE SAID:
  • 03:17   HE HAD INDEED SAID    THAT THROUGH HER.
  • 03:27  THEY MET THE CANAANITES UNDER THE GENERAL SICERA (PHONETIC).
  • 03:30    SICERA WAS TO MET HIS END  ACCORDING TO ANOTHER PROPHECY
  • 03:33   OF DEBORAH WHEN JAEL DROVE  A TENT PEG THROUGH HIS HEAD.
  • 03:37   SHE SAID HE WOULD DIE AT A  WOMAN'S HANDS AND SO HE DID.
  • 03:42  WHEN WE HAVE  A PROPHECY FULFILLED
  • 03:44   IT REMINDS US THAT   THE BIBLE IS STILL
  • 03:46   BATTING A THOUSAND.
  • 03:48  ALL PROPHECY WILL BE  FULFILLED AND NOT MUCH OF IT
  • 03:53 IS FUTURE TO US TODAY.
  • 03:55  I MEAN, WE CAN SEE PROPHECIES   COME AND ABOUT SAY,
  • 03:58   THE LAND OF ISRAEL THAT THE PEOPLE WOULD POSSESS IT
  • 04:01 IF THEY WERE OBEDIENT,    IF THEY WERE DISOBEDIENT
  • 04:03   THEY WOULD LOSE POSSESSION  BUT ULTIMATELY THEY WOULD BE
  • 04:05  RESTORED TO THE LAND.
  • 04:07    WE ARE, TODAY, OF COURSE, SEEING THE RESTORATION.
  • 04:10 PROPHECY FALLS IN THREE PARTS.
  • 04:18    SO THESE ARE THE THINGS WE SHOULD KNOW.
  • 04:20  AND FIRST AND IMPORTANCE IS THE LAND.
  • 04:22   THAT'S AN EASY ONE TO SEE.
  • 04:24   ISRAEL IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN TODAY'S BIBLE STUDY
  • 04:29   AND IN CHRISTENDOM.
  • 04:30 THIS IS THE PLACE WE ARE GOING   FOR A THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM
  • 04:34 UNDER THE KING OF THE JEWS WHO WILL SIT ON THE THRONE OF DAVID.
  • 04:37  IF WE MAKE A  CHURCH SOMEWHERE ELSE
  • 04:39  IN THE WESTERN WORLD  AND WE BOAST AGAINST
  • 04:41  THE BRANCHES AND ISRAEL IS NO   LONGER OF IMPORTANCE TO US,
  • 04:45    WE ARE THE ENTIRE    FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S WAY,
  • 04:48  THE CHURCH HAS BECOME ISRAEL, THIS SORT OF PHILOSOPHY
  • 04:51   WE JUST GO FURTHER   AND FURTHER FROM SCRIPTURE
  • 04:53 AND ULTIMATELY, THAT WAY LIES MADNESS.
  • 04:56   WE JUST LOSE TRACK  OF WHAT WE ARE DOING.
  • 04:58 ISRAEL @S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.
  • 05:00   AND SOME SEMINARIES   TAKING UP SOMETHING CALLED
  • 05:04 THE PROGRESSIVE   DISPENSATIONALISM.
  • 05:06    IT SIMPLY MUDDLES THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN
  • 05:08 THE CHURCH AND ISRAEL.
  • 05:10  AND ALTHOUGH THEY ARE WILLING TO TAKE TOURS TO ISRAEL
  • 05:12 BECAUSE SO MANY BELIEVERS WANT TO SEE THE LAND OF THE KINGDOM.
  • 05:16  THEY NO LONGER REALLY  SEEM TO GIVE IT ITS POSITION
  • 05:20   OF IMPORTANCE THAT IT HAD.
  • 05:22   THE UNITED NATIONS   CONSIDERS ISRAEL JUST SOME
  • 05:25   POLITICAL ENTITY OF COURSE.
  • 05:27    AMERICAN ADMINISTRATIONS  COME AND GO,
  • 05:29  WHATEVER SEEMS BEST TO THEM.
  • 05:31    THEY WERE CURSED   IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION
  • 05:33 AND SO AMERICA HAS BEEN CURSED BACK AND THE PRESIDENT DEPOSED.
  • 05:37   AND SO ON.
  • 05:38    GOD HAS INSTANTLY FULFILLED HIS PROPHECY,
  • 05:46   IF THE CHURCH CURSES ISRAEL  THEN THE CHURCH WILL SUFFER.
  • 05:48   GOD WILL CURSE THE CHURCH.
  • 05:50  AND IT CAN BE SEEN IN  MANY DENOMINATIONAL CHURCHES.
  • 05:53  SADLY, AMERICAN DENOMINATIONS   COME UNDER GROUPS THAT THE
  • 05:57 ISRAELIS SIMPLY    REFER TO AS ANTI-SEMITIC,
  • 06:00  THAT IS A CHURCH DENOMINATION WILL BE LISTED ALONG WITH SOME
  • 06:04  POLITICAL MOVEMENT AS   SIMPLY AN ANTI-SEMITIC UNIT
  • 06:07    TO THE ISRAELI THINKING.
  • 06:10  WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED.
  • 06:13 THE PROPHECIES    ABOUT THE MESSIAH
  • 06:15   MAKE IT DEFINITIVE EXACTLY   WHO HE IS SO THAT WE DON'T
  • 06:18   WORSHIP THE WRONG MESSIAH.
  • 06:20  PEOPLE ONCE WORSHIPED  FUHRER FROM GERMANY.
  • 06:23  PEOPLE HAVE WORSHIPED FALSE MESSIAH FROM SOUTH KOREA.
  • 06:28    MORE RECENTLY FROM WACO.
  • 06:32    THAT CAN'T HAPPEN   IF WE READ THE PROPHECIES.
  • 06:34   NONE OF THEM FULFILLED THE EXACT PROPHECIES OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 06:38  THE MESSIAH, THE MESSIANIC PROPHECY
  • 06:40 BEGINS IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS.
  • 06:50  HE'S TALKING TO THE SERPENT.
  • 06:58    THE MESSIAH WOULD   DEAL A MORTAL BLOW,
  • 06:59  A HEAD WOUND TO THE SERPENT,    TO THE DEVIL AND THAT THE
  • 07:04  SERPENT WOULD BE ABLE TO DEAL  A MINOR WOUND OR WOUND OF THE
  • 07:07  HEEL TO THE MESSIAH.
  • 07:09   WE SEE THAT WORKED   OUT IN THE GOSPEL.
  • 07:11    AND THE MESSIANIC   IDENTITY CONTINUES THROUGH:
  • 07:16  SHEM, HAM AND JAPETH   ON TO ABRAHAM WHO IS CHOSEN
  • 07:20 OF GOD TO BEGIN THE LONG STORY   OF REDEMPTION OF LOST SOULS
  • 07:24    THROUGH HIS SONS  ISAAC, JACOB.
  • 07:27   JUDAH -- MOST PARTICULARLY   THE SCEPTER WILL NOT DEPART
  • 07:29   FROM JUDAH.
  • 07:30  DOWN THROUGH KING DAVID,
  • 07:32 OF HIS LINE
  • 07:33   WOULD COME THE MESSIAH.
  • 07:35 YOU COULD NOT MAKE
  • 07:36 A MISTAKE AND WORSHIP A GERMAN,
  • 07:37   A KOREAN OR A TEXAN IF YOU UNDERSTOOD THAT MUCH PROPHECY.
  • 07:45 AND FINALLY HIS  BIRTHPLACE IS GIVEN.
  • 07:46 IT'S BETHLEHEM.
  • 07:48  THE MESSIAH CANNOT BE
  • 07:49  THE RABBI OF BROOKLYN
  • 07:50   BECAUSE HE WAS NOT
  • 07:51   BORN IN BETHLEHEM.
  • 07:52    VERY SIMPLE OR ELSE WE'LL
  • 07:53   TEAR IT OUT
  • 07:54  FROM THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 07:55  AND THE TIME IS GIVEN
  • 07:57  IN DANIEL 9.
  • 07:58  IT WAS BEFORE
  • 07:59 THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE.
  • 08:03  NOTHING COULD BE MORE CLEAR.
  • 08:04   AND SO WE HAVE THE
  • 08:06  CHARACTERISTICS OF WHO HE IS.
  • 08:07 FURTHERMORE WE HAVE THE STORIES  OF HIS MISSION AND HIS DEATH.
  • 08:11 ISAIAH 53 TALKS   ABOUT THAT HE CAME TO DIE.
  • 08:42    HE SHALL PROLONG HIS DAYS    DESPITE THAT HE WILL DIE
  • 08:45  AND HIS GRAVE BE MADE WITH THE RICH IT SAYS,
  • 08:47 HE WILL STILL PROLONG HIS DAYS.
  • 08:49   SO EVEN THE RESURRECTION IS PREDICTED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 08:52   SO WE HAVE TO HAVE    A DEATH AND RESURRECTION
  • 08:55  FOR A VALID MESSIAH.
  • 08:57 THE RABBIS HAVE   A PROBLEM WITH THE PASSAGE.
  • 09:00 IT'S DIFFICULT.
  • 09:01  IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN CHRIST,  IT IS VERY HARD TO UNDERSTAND
  • 09:05   PROPHECY LIKE THIS.
  • 09:06  THAT IS, IF YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN  THE SPACE TO READ THE GOSPEL,
  • 09:11   IF YOU HAVEN'T STUDIED HOW HE FULFILLED THESE PROPHECIES,
  • 09:14   THEY ARE VERY HARD   TO APPLY ELSEWHERE.
  • 09:16 SOME SAY IT IS ABOUT THE LAND,
  • 09:18   IT IS ABOUT  THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 09:20   OF COURSE, IT SAYS,   "HE" THROUGHOUT THE CHAPTER
  • 09:22  THAT'S NOT A PROBLEM.
  • 09:24   HIS RESURRECTION IS   ALSO GIVEN IN PSALM 16:10.
  • 09:37 THINE HOLY ONE IN DAVID'S WORDS.
  • 09:39 CHRIST, WHO WAS   RESURRECTED FROM THE GRAVE
  • 09:41    BEFORE THE BODY DECAYED.
  • 09:42   HE DID NOT SEE CORRUPTION.
  • 09:43    PETER USED THIS ARGUMENT IN ACTS 2 AT PENTECOST.
  • 09:48   SO THE TWO    MAJOR FIELDS OF PROPHECY,
  • 09:53  WE'VE TALKED ABOUT SO FAR ARE APPARENT TO US FROM SCRIPTURE.
  • 09:57  THE LAND WE CAN SEE, THE MESSIAH WE CAN SEE
  • 10:01   FROM THE EVIDENCE.
  • 10:02   THE END IS  SOMETHING ELSE AGAIN
  • 10:04 WE CAN'T SEE IT   BECAUSE IT'S NOT HERE YET.
  • 10:06 BUT ITS CHARACTERISTICS  ARE ALL AROUND US SO
  • 10:09   THAT WE CAN ANTICIPATE ITS COMING.
  • 10:12 AS WE STAND HERE AGAIN   ON THE MOUNT TABOR,
  • 10:14  THE TERRIFIC   AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC,
  • 10:16  PILGRIMS COMING BACK    AND FORTH ALL DAY
  • 10:18  TO COME TO THE PLACE    MOST PARTICULARLY
  • 10:21    WHERE THE TRANSFIGURATION   REPUTEDLY HAPPENED.
  • 10:24    RIGHT UP ABOVE ME   HERE ON THE SUMMIT,
  • 10:27  THE LORD APPEARED WITH MOSES AND ELIJAH IN THAT GREAT SCENE
  • 10:30   TOLD OF HIM IN MATTHEW 17.
  • 10:32   OR SO THIS MOUNTAIN    IS TRADITIONALLY THOUGHT
  • 10:34 TO BE THE SITE.
  • 10:36 SOME SAY MOUNT  HERMAN IN THE NORTH.
  • 10:37    BUT IN ANY CASE,   WE'LL COME BACK AND DISCUSS
  • 10:41 THOSE IMPORTANT    PROPHECIES ABOUT THE END.
  • 10:44    [ music playing ]
  • 10:59    [ music playing ]
  • 11:09 COME WITH ZOLA   AND SEE THE LAND OF ABRAHAM,
  • 11:12     ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 11:13    EXPERIENCE THE HOLY LAND.
  • 11:16   FOR TOUR INFORMATION WRITE:
  • 11:30  WELL, I'M COMING DOWN  NOW FROM MOUNT TABOR
  • 11:33  THROUGH THE FOOTHILLS
  • 11:34   AND WALKING TOWARD    THE VALLEY OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 11:37 AND OF COURSE,  THAT BRINGS TO MIND THE END.
  • 11:39 THIS WORD "ARMAGEDDON"    IS VERY POPULAR.
  • 11:42  YOU SEE IT IN THE NEWSPAPERS,    THE MAGAZINES, OH, GOSH,
  • 11:44   EVERY TIME THERE IS A STRUGGLE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 11:47   I REMEMBER AT THE BEGINNING   OF DESERT STORM THEY CALLED
  • 11:51 DALLAS SEMINARY TO ASK IF THIS IS ARMAGEDDON?
  • 11:57  THAT WOULDN'T  HAVE BEEN ARMAGEDDON.
  • 11:58  NOT A CHANCE.
  • 11:59  THESE THINGS MEAN SOMETHING.
  • 12:01 THESE ARE EXACT   TERMS IN SCRIPTURE
  • 12:03 AND THEY FOLLOW    CERTAIN EVENTS AND SO ON.
  • 12:05 EVERY SO OFTEN I LIKE TO RUN OVER THE SCHEDULE
  • 12:08 OF THE END TIME EVENTS.
  • 12:11  THE FIRST, OF COURSE,  IS THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
  • 12:14   AND JUST RUN THEM THROUGH.
  • 12:16  THEY ARE VERY   CLEAR IN SCRIPTURE.
  • 12:18  I DON'T THINK    MUCH OF THIS IS ARGUABLE.
  • 12:21   MAY BE A DIFFERENT  STAND ON WHAT OCCURS,
  • 12:24 WHEN BEFORE WHAT OR AFTER AND SO ON IN SOME SCHOOLS OF THINKING,
  • 12:27 BUT THE EVENTS   THEMSELVES ARE VERY CLEAR.
  • 12:30    TO BEGIN WITH THE  RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
  • 12:32   IT HAS NO PROPHECY  THAT COMES BEFORE IT.
  • 12:34   I LIKE THE PRE-TRIBULATION   RAPTURE BECAUSE THE RAPTURE
  • 12:37 IS A SURPRISE.
  • 12:39    AND I CAN'T HAVE   A SURPRISE IF I PUT
  • 12:40 IT AFTER SOMETHING NOTICEABLE.
  • 12:42 IF THE RAPTURE WERE AT   THE END OF THE TRIBULATION
  • 12:45 THEN OF COURSE, I WOULD SEE A SERIES OF EVENTS
  • 12:47   THAT I COULD JUDGE   BY THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 12:49 SIGNING A CONTRACT WITH ISRAEL,   TO START THE THING,
  • 12:52    A COVENANT BETWEEN THEM.
  • 12:54   THE BLASPHEMY AS HE DOUBLE  CROSSES THEM AT THE MIDPOINT,
  • 12:59 THE MOBILIZATION FOR ARMAGEDDON.
  • 13:01    ALL OF THAT WOULD   BE TERRIBLY OBVIOUS
  • 13:02   AND I COULD BE CHECKING OFF THE DAYS ON A CALENDAR
  • 13:04 AND IN EFFECT BE PACKED  TO GO FOR THE RAPTURE
  • 13:07 AND THAT DOESN'T WORK.
  • 13:09    THE LORD CHARACTERIZED IT    AS SO SURPRISING HE USED
  • 13:12  THE EXPRESSIONS: "IN    THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE"
  • 13:14   OR LIKE "LIGHTNING    ACROSS THE SKY."
  • 13:16  THESE THINGS  ARE NOT PREDICTABLE.
  • 13:19    PAUL WAS WAITING FOR IT.
  • 13:20  WE'RE WAITING FOR IT.
  • 13:22  IT COULD BE IMMINENT BEFORE WE FINISH MAKING
  • 13:23 THIS PROGRAM OR BEFORE YOU FINISH WATCHING IT.
  • 13:26  THAT'S FIRST.
  • 13:28   AND THEN TO HEAVEN,    TO FOLLOW FIRST THE LINE
  • 13:30    OF THE BELIEVERS,  WE WOULD HAVE
  • 13:32   THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST IN WHICH OUR WORKS ARE JUDGED.
  • 13:35  NOT OUR SINS BUT WHAT WE DID WITH THE GIFTS WE HAVE.
  • 13:45 AND THERE LEARN HOW WELL WE DID
  • 13:47 WITH WHAT WE WERE GIVEN TO DO.
  • 13:49   WE ARE CHARACTERIZED AS AN   ACTIVE GROUP OF BELIEVERS.
  • 13:53 NOT ON PEOPLE WHO JUST  SIT BACK AND WAIT ON THEIR --
  • 13:57   TO COLLECT THEIR SALVATION BUT RATHER SOLDIERS IN AN ARMY,
  • 14:01    HARVESTERS IN THE FIELD.
  • 14:03    PEOPLE WITH A JOB TO DO.
  • 14:04 WE WAR AGAINST   PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS.
  • 14:06   WELL, IN AN ARMY EVERYBODY   HAS A SPECIFIC JOB
  • 14:10   THERE IS DIFFERENT TALENTS.
  • 14:11    WE HAVE DIFFERENT GIFTS,    THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT.
  • 14:15    BUT IN ANY CASE, HOWEVER, WE ARE GIFTED,
  • 14:17  IF WE USE THOSE GIFTS   IN THE SERVICE OF THE LORD
  • 14:20   HE IS WATCHING THAT    AND HE GIVES US REWARDS.
  • 14:22 IF WE FAIL TO DO THAT,   WE FAIL TO GET THE REWARDS
  • 14:27   AND THEY ARE CHARACTERIZED    IN I CORINTHIANS 3:11-15.
  • 14:30 SOME WORKS ARE OF WOOD, HAY AND STUBBLE, SOME OF GOLD,
  • 14:33   SILVER AND PRECIOUS   STONES AND HE TRIES
  • 14:35    THE WORKS AS IF BY FIRE.
  • 14:37  WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE IN OTHER CONTEXTS.
  • 14:39  BUT AS WE ARE    TALKING ABOUT END TIMES,
  • 14:41   THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE.
  • 14:43    NOT ENOUGH TAUGHT IN THE CHURCHES I THINK BECAUSE WE HAVE
  • 14:46 AN EMPHASIS INSTEAD OF AVOIDING SIN, AVOIDING SIN IS OBVIOUS AND
  • 14:52 APPARENT AND NECESSARY,   BUT DOING OUR WORKS
  • 14:56  IS WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO DO.
  • 14:58   SIN AFTER ALL IS FORGIVEN.
  • 15:00   THE KINGDOM DEPENDS  ON OUR WORKS.
  • 15:02  WHEN WE HAVE FINISHED  THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST,
  • 15:05   WE WILL BE PERFECT.
  • 15:07  OUR SINS WERE FORGIVEN AT THE CROSS.
  • 15:08  OUR WORKS STERILIZED   AWAY IN THE JUDGMENT SEAT.
  • 15:11  TRIED AS IF BY FIRE,    IT SAYS.
  • 15:14    AND THEN WE SHALL
  • 15:15   THEN BE CONDITIONED
  • 15:16   TO MARRY THE LORD.
  • 15:26    SO WE GO TO OUR WEDDING.
  • 15:32    AND THAT WEDDING, THAT'S A POINT
  • 15:34   OF SOME CONTENTION  WHETHER IT IS HELD IN HEAVEN
  • 15:37 OR COME DOWN TO EARTH AND HAVE IT HERE.
  • 15:38   BUT ANYWAY WE DO IT AFTER THE JUDGMENT SEAT
  • 15:41   AND DURING THE TIME  THAT THE TRIBULATION
  • 15:45  IS GOING BY ON EARTH    OR JUST AFTER IT.
  • 15:48   BUT TO GET BACK TO    THE CONDITIONS ON EARTH,
  • 15:51 THE TRIBULATION PERIOD IS GOING
  • 15:52  BY AND IT'S SEVEN YEARS LONG.
  • 15:54  THE GREAT TRIBULATION
  • 15:55   IS THE LATTER HALF
  • 15:56 AND THAT IS THE
  • 15:58  MOBILIZATION FROM ARMAGEDDON.
  • 16:00   WE MENTIONED THE ANTICHRIST
  • 16:02   BLASPHEMY FROM THE TEMPLE.
  • 16:05    THE ISRAELITES WILL BOLT   AS HE DOUBLE CROSSES THEM,
  • 16:08 IF THEY TAKE THE ADVICE OF JESUS WHO SAID FLEE
  • 16:10 INTO THE HILLS OF JUDEA  WHEN YOU SEE THAT ABOMINATION
  • 16:13   OF DESOLATION STAND   IN THE HOLY PLACE.
  • 16:15    MATTHEW 24:15-16.
  • 16:19   AND ARMAGEDDON WILL START TO COME ON.
  • 16:22   IT TAKES THREE  AND HALF YEARS.
  • 16:24    IT TAKES THE SECOND HALF OF THE TRIBULATION TO MOBILIZE
  • 16:27 A BATTLE WITH A   WORLD OF ARMIES LIKE THIS.
  • 16:30  THE KING OF THE EAST BRINGS A
  • 16:32  TWO HUNDRED MILLION MAN ARMY.
  • 16:34 IMAGINE WHEN JOHN WROTE
  • 16:35    THAT NUMBER HE MUST HAVE
  • 16:38    THOUGHT DID I HEAR RIGHT?
  • 16:39  BECAUSE A LARGE CITY   HAD 50,000 PEOPLE.
  • 16:43    200 MILLION MEN.
  • 16:45   AND YET, THERE IS A NATION    IN THE EAST THAT CAN FILL
  • 16:47 THAT KIND OF ARMY TODAY AND SO MANY SAY THAT IS CHINA.
  • 16:50    IF IT IS LITERALLY CHINA    OR DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS
  • 16:53    OF COUNTRIES OF THE EAST WHICH ARE ALL POPULOUS
  • 16:58 AND COULD SUPPLY MANY SOLDIERS.
  • 17:00   BUT IN ANY CASE THEY MARCH.
  • 17:02    IT APPEARS TO BE A FIGHT   WITH THE ANTICHRIST
  • 17:03    AND HIS WESTERN COALITION  WITH THE KINGS OF THE
  • 17:07 NORTH AND SOUTH   JOINING IN TO TAKE A SPOIL.
  • 17:10   IT IS A LITTLE HARD TO SAY WHO FIGHTS WITH WHO ABOUT WHAT.
  • 17:13  BUT WE CHARACTERIZE IT BEFORE   AS AN ATTACK FROM THE EAST.
  • 17:16    PERHAPS THAT YELLOW PERIL   THAT WESTERN MEN HAS ALWAYS
  • 17:20  TALKED ABOUT   EVENTUALLY THEY WILL COME.
  • 17:23 THEY COME WITH THE ANTICHRIST
  • 17:24 AND HE IS IN JERUSALEM  I SUPPOSE BECAUSE THE BATTLE
  • 17:29    IS AT ARMAGEDDON   AND NOT IN EUROPE.
  • 17:32    HE HAS TAKEN OVER IN THE TEMPLE,
  • 17:34    APPARENTLY STILL  REIGNS IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 17:36   CALLS ISRAEL HIS -- THE HEAD OF HIS KINGDOM
  • 17:40   AND A PERFECT COUNTERFEITER OF WHAT THE LORD REALLY WILL DO.
  • 17:43  AND SO THEY MARCH ON ISRAEL.
  • 17:45    AND THE PERFECT STAGING AREA    WHEN YOU BRING IN AN ENORMOUS
  • 17:48    AREA INTO THIS SMALL COUNTRY   IS THIS FERTILE VALLEY
  • 17:52  40 MILES ACROSS,    VERY FLAT CALLED ARMAGEDDON.
  • 17:56    HERE YOU CAN PUT UP SOLDIERS.
  • 17:57   THEY CAN HAVE WATER   AND FOOD AND SO ON.
  • 17:59 AND SO THE ASSAULT ON JERUSALEM.
  • 18:02 YOU CAN EASILY READ ABOUT THAT.
  • 18:03 IT IS CERTAINLY
  • 18:04   A HORRIBLE BATTLE.
  • 18:06 BLOOD UP TO THE HORSE'S
  • 18:07 BRIDLES IT SAYS IN REVELATION.
  • 18:09  AND JERUSALEM   IS ALMOST DESTROYED
  • 18:11 BUT THE LORD COMES AND STOPS IT.
  • 18:13  IT SAYS IF I HAD NOT COME THEN,
  • 18:14   THERE WOULD BE NO FLESH SAVED.
  • 18:16    HE SETS UP HIS THRONE
  • 18:18 AND HOLDS HIS JUDGMENT   OF THE SHEEP AND THE GOATS
  • 18:20   BEING SURE TO TAKE IN THOSE  WHO DEMONSTRATED THEIR FAITH
  • 18:23    DURING THE TRIBULATION BY THEIR KINDNESS TO THE 144,000,
  • 18:27    THE BRETHREN OF THE LORD,   AS HE SAID IN MATTHEW 25:40
  • 18:30   "INASMUCH AS YOU'VE DONE IT UNTO ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE
  • 18:32  "MY BRETHREN,    YOU'VE DONE IT UNTO ME."
  • 18:35 ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF GOD BLESSING THOSE WHO BLESS ISRAEL,
  • 18:38 CURSING THOSE WHO CURSE ISRAEL.
  • 18:40   HE WILL NOT ADMIT THE GOATS   WHO DID NOT SHOW THAT FAITH
  • 18:44 AND DID NOT TREAT HIS BREdHREN IN THAT MANNER.
  • 18:47 FINALLY, A THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM.
  • 18:49  WE'LL HAVE SOME PEACE ON EARTH.
  • 18:50    THAT IS THE TIME THE LION
  • 18:51 SHALL LIE DOWN WITH THE LAMB
  • 18:53   AND MEN SHALL NOT LEARN WAR
  • 18:54  ANYMORE IN HIS HOLY MOUNTAIN.
  • 18:56   AND WE CAN COMPLETE   THE SCRIPTURE THAT
  • 18:58  WE'VE WRITTEN ON THE UNITED NATIONS.
  • 19:10 AND SO WE BEGIN    AFTER THE GREAT,
  • 19:12    WHITE THRONE OF JUDGMENT,   WITH THE INCREDIBLE PERIOD
  • 19:15 CALLED ETERNITY, REVELATION 21,
  • 19:18  A NEW HEAVEN,  A NEW EARTH, A NEW JERUSALEM.
  • 19:23  THAT IS THE LAST OF PROPHECY AND THEN IT GOES ON ETERNALLY.
  • 19:28 IT IS WONDERFUL TO STAND AT MOUNT TABOR
  • 19:29  WHERE PROPHECY WAS FULFILLED SO VERY LONG AGO UNDER
  • 19:32 THE JUDGE DEBORAH MORE THAN THREE THOUSAND YEARS AGO.
  • 19:36 AND LOOK AHEAD,    PAST OUR OWN TIME
  • 19:39   AND ANOTHER  THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM
  • 19:41 TO AN ETERNITY THAT IS COMING.
  • 19:43 THIS IS A PERFECT PLACE TO SAY,    "AMEN, COME LORD JESUS."
  • 19:51  AND AS WE WELCOME THE KINGDOM WE CAN DO SO KNOWING FULL WELL
  • 19:55  THAT PROPHECY   IS BEING FULFILLED.
  • 19:57    OUR GOOD FRIEND,  DAVID DOLAN,
  • 19:59   JOINS US NOW WITH A JOURNALIST'S VIEW OF PROPHECY.
  • 20:02   PROPHECY WRITTEN 2700 YEARS AGO AND BEING FULFILLED TODAY.
  • 20:07 JUST AS ZOLA'S  LOCATION MOUNT TABOR
  • 20:09   SPOKE OF FULFILLED PROPHECY   SO DOES MY LOCATION
  • 20:12    THE CANADA HOUSE ABSORPTION CENTRE IN JERUSALEM.
  • 20:16    BIBLICAL PROPHECY IS NOT JUST A THING OF THE PAST
  • 20:18    OR CONCERNING EVENTS YET TO BE FULFILLED IN THE FUTURE.
  • 20:22   THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL,   ESTABLISHED IN THIS CENTURY
  • 20:24 ON THE HEELS OF THE HOLOCAUST IS ITSELF
  • 20:27  A FULFILLMENT  OF BIBLICAL PROPHECY.
  • 20:29  GOD FORETOLD THROUGH   MANY PROPHETS LIKE ISAIAH,
  • 20:32  JEREMIAH AND EZEKIEL THAT HE WOULD REGATHER
  • 20:34    THE JEWISH PEOPLE    TO THEIR ANCIENT MIDEAST
  • 20:36   HOME LAND IN THE LAST DAYS JUST BEFORE THE FINAL REVELATION
  • 20:40    OF GOD'S KINGDOM OVER ALL OF THE EARTH.
  • 20:42 TWO SPECIAL PLACES FROM   WHERE JEWS WOULD RETURN TO
  • 20:45  ARE HI-LIGHTED IN THE BIBLE.
  • 20:47  IN ISAIAH CHAPTER 43  AND VERSE 6.
  • 20:49  FROM THE NORTH OF ISRAEL AND FROM THE SOUTH.
  • 21:01    THE GREATEST IMMIGRATION   WAVE SINCE THE EARLY 1950S
  • 21:04    HAS BEEN OCCURING HERE IN ISRAEL SINCE LATE 1989.
  • 21:08   OVER 450,000 JEWS HAVE COME  FROM THE FAR NORTH OF ISRAEL
  • 21:12 FROM THE FORMER  SOVIET UNION
  • 21:14 AND THOUSANDS ARE STILL    COMING HERE EVERY MONTH.
  • 21:17 SOME STUDY HEBREW HERE    AND THEY LEARN EVERY DAY
  • 21:20 SO THAT THEY MAY GO OUT  AND LIVE IN THE LAND.
  • 21:22    THEIR CHILDREN PLAY HERE    AT THE ABSORPTION CENTRE.
  • 21:25    10S OF THOUSANDS OF BLACK ETHIOPIAN JEWS
  • 21:27   HAVE ALSO BEEN COMING HOME    FROM THE SOUTH OF ISRAEL,
  • 21:31 FROM ETHIOPIA,  ALTHOUGH MANY ARE ILL
  • 21:33  DUE TO YEARS OF FAMINE THERE THEY ARE WELCOMED AND CARED FOR
  • 21:36 HERE IN ISRAEL.
  • 21:38  THERE ARE OF COURSE,   PROBLEMS ABSORBING SO MANY
  • 21:40 NEW IMMIGRANTS   IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 21:43    BUT THERE IS ALSO  GREAT FAITH THAT THE
  • 21:45   GOD OF ISRAEL IS INVOLVED.
  • 21:46  AS IT SAYS IN JEREMIAH CHAPTER 31:10,
  • 21:50    "HE WHO SCATTERED ISRAEL  WILL GATHER HIM AND KEEP HIM
  • 21:52 "AS A SHEPHERD KEEPS HIS FLOCK."

  • 24:26 ISRAEL'S GETTING TO BE  A LAND OF FOREIGNERS.
  • 24:29    SO MANY VISITORS,    SO MANY TOURISTS,
  • 24:31    AND OF COURSE, SO MANY NEW IMMIGRANTS AS YOU SAW.
  • 24:34    AND I HAVE A FUNNY STORY ABOUT BUMPING INTO SOME
  • 24:37   FOREIGNERS ON MOUNT TABOR.
  • 24:39    THE DAY WE FILMED    I WAS IN MY ROBE
  • 24:42    AS YOU SAW ME COMING DOWN THE MOUNTAIN WE PARKED THE VAN
  • 24:45   AND WE WERE WALKING ALONG THE ROAD.
  • 24:47 AND SOME GERMAN PEOPLE  WERE WALKING UP THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 24:50  IT IS A POPULAR THING TO WALK UP THE SERPENTINE PATH
  • 24:53 ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP OF MOUNT TABOR IN A PILGRIM-LIKE MARCH.
  • 24:57  AND AN OLD GENTLEMAN  TOOK ME FOR A PRIEST
  • 25:02  AND CAME UP TO ME AND I DON'T  KNOW SHOOK MY HAND AND WEPT,
  • 25:06   I GOT THE IMPRESSION HE WAS  CONFESSING SINS OR WHATEVER.
  • 25:10    BUT HAPPY TO SEE  A PRIEST ALONG THE MOUNTAIN.
  • 25:12  AND I DIDN'T    WANT TO INTERRUPT
  • 25:14   AND DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT HE WAS SAYING.
  • 25:16 I LIKE TO THINK I FORGAVE HIM,
  • 25:19 I MEAN TO SAY,  IF HE WAS CONFESSING.
  • 25:21 I SMILED AND HE SMILED AND THEN ANOTHER PERSON
  • 25:24  IN THE GROUP WHO SPOKE A LITTLE ENGLISH SAID,
  • 25:27   "YOU ARE A PRIEST?"
  • 25:28 I SAID, "NO, ACTUALLY,    I'M JUST AN ACTOR
  • 25:31  "ACTING LIKE A PRIEST AND WE LOOKED AT THE OTHER MAN
  • 25:34  "AND HE WAS SO HAPPY    THAT WE DIDN'T TELL HIM."
  • 25:38  AND SO I DID MY JOB THAT DAY.
  • 25:41 I DON'T KNOW IF I WAS CALLED TO BE A PRIEST FOR THAT MAN OR NOT.
  • 25:44   THE FOREIGN PEOPLE   WHO COME TO ISRAEL,
  • 25:46  MANY OF THEM  STAY AS YOU CAN SEE.
  • 25:48    THAT IS, THEY ARE   JEWS THAT ARE COMING HOME.
  • 25:50  THEY ARE NOT REALLY FOREIGN, THEY STARTED OUT THERE.
  • 25:52  I STARTED OUT THERE.
  • 25:54    MY NAME, LEVI IN    HEBREW, AS YOU WELL KNOW,
  • 25:57  STARTED THERE    FOUR THOUSAND YEARS AGO.
  • 25:59 GOD'S PLAN IS BEING FULFILLED.
  • 26:01   AND ONE OF THE MOST   DRAMATIC EVIDENCES
  • 26:03 THAT WE HAVE AN ACTIVE AND LIVING GOD, A LIVING FAITH,
  • 26:06    IS THAT IT'S CONTINUALLY   FULFILLED BEFORE OUR EYES.
  • 26:10   TRULY, I FEEL SORRY    FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T SEE
  • 26:13   WHAT IS GOING ON IN ISRAEL.
  • 26:15   YOU HAVE TO SHUT YOUR EYES  AND PUT YOUR HANDS OVER THEM
  • 26:18 TO NOT SEE THE MIRACLE  OF DOUBLE THE NUMBER
  • 26:21  OF JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE LAND    NOW THAN THERE WERE UNDER
  • 26:23 KING DAVID AND SOLOMON    AND STILL COMING.
  • 26:25  THE MIRACLE OF JEWISH   PEOPLE COMING OUT OF RUSSIA

  • 26:29   ELSE IN THE WORLD.
