Caption transcript for Thy Kingdom Come (2018): “The Rapture” (2/12)

  • 00:01 Next up on the prophetic calendar is the Rapture.
  • 00:04 We'll be discussing that today on Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:13 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved,
  • 00:19 for there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek,
  • 00:22 for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.
  • 00:44 Shalom Havarim and welcome to Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 00:47 I'm David Hart.
  • 00:48 And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:49 Jeffrey Seif!
  • 00:50 We are in our series, "Thy Kingdom Come"
  • 00:53 Which first aired in 2001 with our Founder, Zola Levitt.
  • 00:57 He passed on in 2006 but we're able to have his teaching.
  • 01:03 And how many times have you and I said,
  • 01:04 We wish that we could have sat at this table with Zola...
  • 01:08 And just chat and learn from him.
  • 01:09 So we think that you may have some stories.
  • 01:11 "If ya can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with".
  • 01:14 We do, we do.
  • 01:15 But listen, kudos to you.
  • 01:17 That " Shalom Havarim "...
  • 01:18 You're really gettin the gist of this thing!
  • 01:20 Natural
  • 01:21 Yes.
  • 01:22 One good story, a Zola story.
  • 01:24 I'll tell you what I liked about him the most.
  • 01:26 He was authentic.
  • 01:27 I used to say that he was the authentic article in a world of frauds.
  • 01:30 Love him or hate him, he was direct, he was to the point,
  • 01:33 He had a kind of down to "earthiness"
  • 01:36 that distinguished him in Christian television,
  • 01:40 that was so hyped up!
  • 01:40 Right, that's how we feel too.
  • 01:42 Right now, let's go to Zola's teaching in Israel.
  • 01:48 Well, we're going to talk about the Rapture,
  • 01:50 and we've come to a very special cemetery
  • 01:52 where many people lie here who the Lord will definitely call to Him.
  • 01:57 These are the first missionaries to the Jews in modern Israel.
  • 02:03 Some of these graves go back to the beginning of the 1800's, and so on.
  • 02:08 Little children and the Bishop of Jerusalem...
  • 02:12 some with Hebrew lettering on their tombstones and so on.
  • 02:18 Truly witnesses to those to whom the Gospel goes first,
  • 02:24 to the Jews, as Jesus said when He came to this earth,
  • 02:26 at Matthew 10:5-6
  • 02:29 "I come only unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel".
  • 02:32 And those were the instructions he gave his Disciples.
  • 02:36 And when we leave this earth in the Rapture,
  • 02:41 the great translation of the Church to Heaven,
  • 03:07 The next verse says, "Comfort one another with these words and
  • 03:11 that's what we're doing.
  • 03:13 We're teaching about the Rapture
  • 03:14 and I hope you are greatly comforted
  • 03:16 because by golly, you're going to defeat death.
  • 03:19 This is the greatest Promise, I suppose in all the Scripture,
  • 03:23 and it's a Promise you can't get anywhere else,
  • 03:25 only Jesus Christ is going to make a re-appearance.
  • 03:30 You know, here in Jerusalem there is an empty tomb.
  • 03:33 This is Jesus' Tomb they say.
  • 03:35 But, anyhow there's an empty tomb somewhere from which He rose.
  • 03:40 Reverend van der Hoeven,
  • 03:42 the retired Director of
  • 03:44 the Christian Embassy in Jerusalem said
  • 03:46 if he went to the Tomb of Mohammed or the Tomb of Buddha he would find
  • 03:52 them sealed, their body still inside
  • 03:55 buried, dead and not come out.
  • 03:58 And if he stood there and said, "Help me",
  • 04:02 well they would say, "We couldn't even help ourselves!"
  • 04:06 He says, But at the empty Tomb of Christ
  • 04:08 He doesn't have to say anything.
  • 04:10 Just see that it's empty and that's help enough.
  • 04:14 Now the Scripture begins in
  • 04:18 I Thessalonians 4:13-14.
  • 04:21 The subject is that the people in Thessalonica
  • 04:24 wrote to Paul asking about the dead.
  • 04:27 Some people in the Church had died and
  • 04:30 Paul had preached that the Lord is soon to return.
  • 04:33 And that's correct teaching in any Christian generation.
  • 04:36 He may...He may.
  • 04:37 So we always remind people that He's on His way.
  • 04:40 If He tarries, He tarries,
  • 04:42 but we still need to remind people that Christ may come at any moment,
  • 04:47 and he had done that with them.
  • 04:49 And he's the one that had taught them this term "Rapture",
  • 04:52 "raptura" in the Latin Vulgate Bible,
  • 04:56 and it came to the English word "rapture",
  • 04:58 but anyhow it's the word for "caught up".
  • 05:02 That's how it is.
  • 05:03 The Lord catches us up like the fish in the net, in the Gospel.
  • 05:08 And when people tell you the word "rapture" isn't in the Scripture... it is.
  • 05:12 It's the English words "caught up".
  • 05:14 It's simply a Latin word.
  • 05:17 But they were concerned for the people that had
  • 05:19 "fallen asleep", they called it.
  • 05:21 And he wrote to them saying this in I Thessalonians 4:13,
  • 05:44 He is the example.
  • 05:45 His Tomb is empty.
  • 05:48 This Rapture is coming.
  • 05:49 It's at an unexpected time, is one problem with it,
  • 05:54 that is Christians should be living like Christians,
  • 05:57 and occupied with God's work at all times because
  • 06:01 we don't know when He's coming.
  • 06:03 He said in Luke 12:40,
  • 06:11 So there's a warning.
  • 06:12 You know when Christ went with His disciples to the Upper Room,
  • 06:16 He revealed so much there.
  • 06:18 John 14:1-3 said, "Let not your heart be troubled,"
  • 06:21 "you believe in God, believe also in Me."
  • 06:24 "In My Father's House there are many mansions."
  • 06:26 "I go to prepare a place for you,"
  • 06:28 "And if I go I'll come back and take you there"
  • 06:30 "So you may be where I am."
  • 06:32 In other words, He's going to leave, He said,
  • 06:34 but He's going to return,
  • 06:36 and He's going to return for the Church.
  • 06:38 And He did do this, that is, He rose from the dead,
  • 06:42 and He did ascend into Heaven.
  • 06:45 Before He did, you know He held a Bible School.
  • 06:47 I would love to the Lord's 40 Day Bible School,
  • 06:50 six week Bible School.
  • 06:52 It says in Acts 1:3
  • 07:03 Well that's what we're doing.
  • 07:05 I just wish the churches were doing this,
  • 07:08 and the seminaries would take their responsibility
  • 07:11 to teach the things of the Kingdom of God,
  • 07:13 but some of the things I'm saying
  • 07:15 many Christians are hearing them for the first time in their lives.
  • 07:18 Although they've gone to church their whole life
  • 07:20 or one of the great seminaries that are supposed to teach prophecy
  • 07:24 but somehow just doesn't do it.
  • 07:27 You know I hear all the time, prophesy's controversial.
  • 07:30 I don't know what the controversy is
  • 07:33 but when is Christianity not controversial?
  • 07:36 It ought to be a doctrine that supercedes all earthly doctrines,
  • 07:40 and it ought to raise some controversy.
  • 07:43 The ascension of the Lord is also in Acts 1:10-11,
  • 08:05 So, not only does He ascend,
  • 08:07 but He will come back out of Heaven the same way.
  • 08:12 That 40 Day Bible School sure changed Peter, didn't it?
  • 08:14 Before the Lord came out of His grave
  • 08:18 Peter was saying, he didn't know the man.
  • 08:21 Three times he denied Him.
  • 08:23 After the Lord taught him 40 days he could
  • 08:25 speak at Pentecost of the things of the Kingdom,
  • 08:28 that is, quoting from the Prophet Joel, and the Psalms,
  • 08:32 he was a Bible giant all of a sudden.
  • 08:35 Well the Rapture comes as a surprise.
  • 08:38 The Lord described it in other Scripture,
  • 08:40 as "in a twinkling of an eye",
  • 08:42 or "like lightning across the sky".
  • 08:44 So, it's fast, it's sudden,
  • 08:46 it's hard to predict.
  • 08:47 When there's a big storm and you hear thunder,
  • 08:49 you expect lightning,
  • 08:51 but you don't know in which instant that lightning will come.
  • 08:54 We know that the Lord is coming
  • 08:56 but we don't know what night He's coming.
  • 08:58 And for this reason I favor the pre-Tribulation Rapture
  • 09:02 over all other theories
  • 09:04 because the Rapture has no event before it and it comes as a surprise.
  • 09:08 without going into all the theology about it,
  • 09:12 it's so simple to think if it came at the end of the Tribulation
  • 09:16 it would be quite easy to watch all the events in the Tribulation.
  • 09:19 Put the thing on a calendar.
  • 09:21 It'd be exactly 7 years after
  • 09:23 the anti-Christ makes a covenant with Israel.
  • 09:25 I could check my calculations
  • 09:28 when he goes into the Temple and
  • 09:30 blasphemes at the mid point of the Tribulation 3 1/2 years later.
  • 09:33 The book of Revelation gives me the twelve hundred and sixty days and so on.
  • 09:37 I can't miss it.
  • 09:39 I could be packed the night the Lord comes,
  • 09:41 if it were that simple that it was at the end of the tribulation.
  • 09:46 Likewise, in the middle of the Tribulation,
  • 09:48 I could be packed.
  • 09:50 You don't need to pack anything in the Rapture.
  • 09:53 Of course the Lord has all you need for your whole eternal life.
  • 09:56 But we used to say this on the radio
  • 09:59 when I had a program where people could call in,
  • 10:01 and we decided not to say that we'll be packed for the Rapture
  • 10:06 because we would start a denomination called "Packers",
  • 10:08 people that carry luggage around to show
  • 10:11 that they are going to be ready when the Rapture occurs.
  • 10:14 But anyhow, in the book that the ministry has,
  • 10:16 "Raptured", written years ago.
  • 10:18 Dr. McCall and I wrote it.
  • 10:20 And we have a chapter called,
  • 10:22 "Pre-Trib verses Mid-Trib,
  • 10:24 verses Post Trib verses No-Trib."
  • 10:26 There's people out there, could you believe?,
  • 10:27 that don't think there's a Rapture at all,
  • 10:29 in spite of all the Scripture I just quoted,
  • 10:32 but we deal even with that position.
  • 10:34 But we take up each position fairly and
  • 10:38 with good reason that we give in that book,
  • 10:40 we come down strongly as Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
  • 10:43 So, if the Rapture does not occur,
  • 10:46 I'll be back, right after this.
  • 10:58 Our Resource this week,
  • 10:59 the Book "Raptured" by Dr. Tom S. McCall and Zola Levitt.
  • 11:04 Packed with relevant Scriptures
  • 11:06 this Book presents the various views of
  • 11:08 when the Rapture of the Church might happen,
  • 11:11 and suggests which views seems most correct.
  • 11:14 This doctrine is not always understood by the Church
  • 11:17 but it will affect everyone on earth,
  • 11:19 in the twinkling of an eye.
  • 11:21 Contact us and ask for
  • 11:23 the Book "Rapture".
  • 11:27 Our Founder, Zola Levitt established this ministry in 1979.
  • 11:31 Today, we continue bringing you the Good News of Messiah,
  • 11:35 and the truth about Israel.
  • 11:37 via television or Newsletter,
  • 11:39 and the Internet.
  • 11:41 If you believe that this Bible teaching ministry
  • 11:44 is worthy of your assistance
  • 11:46 then please call us at 1-800-WONDERS
  • 11:49 or Visit us at levitt.com
  • 11:52 We sincerely appreciate your prayers
  • 11:54 and your financial support.
  • 11:58 We want to thank you for your support
  • 11:59 as we continue explaining the Jewish roots of our Christian faith.
  • 12:04 Right now, let's go back to Zola's teaching
  • 12:07 on the Rapture.
  • 12:10 You know, in my ministry people have thought it's
  • 12:14 a novelty that I want to witness to the Jews,
  • 12:17 but I'm standing by a grave
  • 12:19 of a man, a doctor.
  • 12:20 It says M.D. after his name,
  • 12:22 "Missionary to the Jews"
  • 12:24 Died 1826.
  • 12:26 This has been a mission ever since Jesus did it,
  • 12:28 and all generations.
  • 12:30 It's just, I don't know what is better tolerated today or whatever.
  • 12:34 Anyhow, about the Lord's coming,
  • 12:46 You know, you can see this working out,
  • 12:48 say in the first century field where
  • 12:51 there is a Jew and a Gentile
  • 12:53 working a farm together.
  • 12:55 There were people in the Land,
  • 12:56 sojourners at that time.
  • 12:58 They might have been field workers.
  • 13:00 And then the Feast of Trumpets would come.
  • 13:02 Symbolic of the Rapture, the Trumpets sounds.
  • 13:04 From the Temple they blew a Trumpet and
  • 13:07 then that was repeated from field to field throughout the Land.
  • 13:09 The trumpet or shofar player
  • 13:12 would sound the call,
  • 13:14 and the Jews would immediately report to their Worship,
  • 13:16 the Feast of Trumpets,
  • 13:18 the end of the Harvest.
  • 13:20 And the Gentile would finish taking the crops of course,
  • 13:25 it wasn't his festival.
  • 13:26 So there you saw acted out,
  • 13:28 the Lord taking one from a field
  • 13:31 but leaving the other and so on.
  • 13:34 Now, when is all this going to happen?
  • 13:36 Well, "Soon and very Soon" says the Hymn
  • 13:40 And why not?
  • 13:43 And who's going?
  • 13:44 Well, first of all the Church itself is all going.
  • 13:51 Revelation 3:10 describes just that it's
  • 13:56 before the Tribulation in this way,
  • 13:58 "because thou hast kept the Word of My patience.
  • 14:00 This is addressed to the "Good Church",
  • 14:03 the Church of Philadelphia.
  • 14:04 Out of the Seven Churches it's the one which receives
  • 14:07 nothing but commendations and no criticisms from the Lord.
  • 14:13 He says,
  • 14:23 So, before the Tribulation every Christian goes.
  • 14:28 You know, this question of partial Rapture
  • 14:33 used to come up on my radio program.
  • 14:35 Someone told me one day, "only the good Christians are going.
  • 14:38 Well, I don't know any.
  • 14:40 You know the Physician comes to heal the sick
  • 14:42 "The Church," as Morey Shrosen of Jews for Jesus said once,
  • 14:47 "The Church is not a museum for Saints, It's a hospital for sinners."
  • 14:51 The people that are going need to go, let me put it that way.
  • 14:54 I need to go.
  • 14:55 I certainly need a new body I can tell you that.
  • 14:58 But you know we shouldn't predict when the Rapture's coming.
  • 15:02 That's a mistake.
  • 15:03 In 1988, if you remember, there was a book circulated,
  • 15:06 it was given away, really.
  • 15:07 All over the country people got excited
  • 15:09 the Rapture was going to be...I think it was September 11th, 1988.
  • 15:13 He calculated the simple arithmetic 40 years since a generation and so on.
  • 15:20 It went defunct of course immediately after the 11th
  • 15:25 cause there wasn't the Rapture.
  • 15:26 Nothing changed.
  • 15:28 The Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas
  • 15:30 had me come in the next year in 1989
  • 15:34 to do a six week teaching on "89 Reasons why we can't predict the Rapture".
  • 15:41 We shouldn't predict the Rapture.
  • 15:43 If somebody convinced you that the Rapture is, say a month from now,
  • 15:46 well my goodness, you could make credit card purchases,etc.
  • 15:51 I laugh because somebody said, "Don't do that because"
  • 15:54 "when you get to the Judgment Seat of Christ" in Heaven,
  • 15:56 "You might see those receipts on His desk!"
  • 15:59 That's quite possible.
  • 16:02 The Church doesn't go through the Tribulation for another reason
  • 16:05 because it's not mentioned from Revelation 4, verse 1
  • 16:08 in which a Trumpet sounds all the way out to Revelation 19.
  • 16:12 The world is in tremendous calamity,
  • 16:14 and things are... judgments are falling all over the place,
  • 16:19 people are dying but there's no instruction given to the Church
  • 16:23 as to what to do about this or where to hide or where to go.
  • 16:26 I don't think that the Church is here at all.
  • 16:30 In the Tribulation I think we have all,
  • 16:32 every Believer in Jesus Christ,
  • 16:33 gone on before then in the Rapture.
  • 16:36 All souls that are conscious once, are conscious for eternity.
  • 16:41 We all have eternal life.
  • 16:43 The question is, Are we with God?, Are we not with God?
  • 16:47 John 5:28-29 says,
  • 17:04 I'm afraid so.
  • 17:06 These graves will open
  • 17:08 and this good missionary to the Jews,
  • 17:09 and this good Bishop of Jerusalmen all these others will come out
  • 17:13 and will go to the Lord!
  • 17:15 Every grave will open and unbelievers will
  • 17:18 then be bound to Satan unto Judgment at the end.
  • 17:21 We'll talk in later programs about that.
  • 17:24 Believers go on to be with the Lord
  • 17:28 and will be conscious always.
  • 17:30 Everybody will have and eternal life.
  • 17:33 It's just some will be with God and some will not.
  • 17:35 That is the important point.
  • 17:37 The Jews say the Old Testament doesn't speak of this division, this Resurrection, but it does!
  • 17:44 Daniel 12:2-3 says this,
  • 18:03 My Goodness!
  • 18:04 Now in the New Testament we learn that all men die of course,
  • 18:08 "It's appointed unto men once to die and then the judgment."
  • 18:12 But Jesus is the first example of the permanent Resurrection.
  • 18:17 He is the First Fruit of those that have died.
  • 18:21 You know, it says this in I Corinthians 15:20-23,
  • 18:48 So, I think we all have a number in this Resurrection,
  • 18:52 or we go in ranks,
  • 18:53 or we go with our church or our contemporaries somehow
  • 18:56 because the Gospel says,
  • 18:57 "The hairs of your head are all numbered."
  • 18:59 The Dead in Christ rise first obviously.
  • 19:02 They have lower numbers.
  • 19:05 Then we are changed.
  • 19:07 The change says that our bodies are reconstituted for Eternal Life.
  • 19:13 Again, the Jews say it's not in the Old Testament, but it certainly is.
  • 19:17 Job 14:13-15,
  • 19:27 (wrath be past) That is the Tribulation.
  • 19:30 The Old Testament Saints will be raised at the end of the Great Tribulation.
  • 19:37 "A set time".
  • 19:38 In Hebrew it's munah
  • 19:40 like the time of your military hitch.
  • 19:41 It is a "set time".
  • 19:43 It's a precise time that ends at a precise moment.
  • 19:46 Job philosophizes,
  • 19:59 Job says, no matter how long I'm in the grave,
  • 20:02 you'll want the work of your hands...Job's body, My body, he says.
  • 20:06 And he triumphantly says in a verse we all quote, Job 19:25
  • 20:24 You know death, our common fear,
  • 20:26 is totally defeated by this Rapture.
  • 20:30 It says "We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed."
  • 20:33 That's I Corinthians 15:51-53
  • 20:37 And the Christian ultimately does not even fear death.
  • 20:42 It is the last enemy the Bible says.
  • 20:46 But Christ defeats it.
  • 20:48 And finally, in I Corinthians 15:55-57, it says this,
  • 21:06 Amen!
  • 21:30 [Scenes of Israel]
  • 22:20 We are back at the table right now with Dr. Jeff.
  • 22:22 So great to be with you today.
  • 22:25 I think you may know this,
  • 22:27 Kirsten and I both grew up in the Church.
  • 22:28 I am a Pastor's son,
  • 22:30 Kirsten, minister of music's daughter.
  • 22:31 We grew up in kind of different denominations.
  • 22:34 And we've heard some different doctrine on the Rapture.
  • 22:37 And I have a feeling that in Messianic circles
  • 22:40 there's different views on the Rapture too.
  • 22:42 Is that correct?
  • 22:44 Well, you know there's always confusion at the borders of knowledge.
  • 22:46 People weren't talking about Bible prophecy
  • 22:48 in Israel years ago.
  • 22:50 And I'm glad that its back on the table,
  • 22:52 with the wonderful events like the
  • 22:54 re-constitution of Israel as a Nation State.
  • 22:56 ,People are looking at "What's God up to in the world"
  • 23:00 "and how does it relate to the Jews in the world to come?
  • 23:03 So with all things new there's always confusion,
  • 23:05 but I can live with the confusion.
  • 23:07 Even if people don't have all the right answers,
  • 23:09 people are always asking the right question,
  • 23:11 What's God up to in the world?
  • 23:12 I think with Zola, the Thessalonia text
  • 23:14 is a principle go-to one.
  • 23:16 Therein we're told specifically the Lord is going to come down,
  • 23:19 the Trumpet's going to blow,
  • 23:20 and we're out a here.
  • 23:21 What do you guys think of that?
  • 23:23 We sang that song.
  • 23:24 Do you remember the song "Two men walking up a hill"
  • 23:27 "One disappears and one's left standing still"
  • 23:29 Do you remember that?
  • 23:30 "I wish we'd all been ready."
  • 23:31 And I kind of grew up thinking...
  • 23:33 Was that Keith Green?
  • 23:34 Yes, it's an old one.
  • 23:35 But...
  • 23:36 Larry Norman
  • 23:37 It's dating us.
  • 23:38 But it's almost like it was going to be a scary thing.
  • 23:40 and "yoooove been left behind!"
  • 23:42 It was a scary...
  • 23:43 but it's not a scary event.
  • 23:45 Well, it is a warning, you know?
  • 23:47 We want to be ready.
  • 23:48 People are moved either by fear of punishments
  • 23:51 or promises of rewards.
  • 23:53 You know, "Quit smoking",
  • 23:54 "I need to quit smoking."
  • 23:55 But you go to the doctor and he says,
  • 23:57 Listen, if you do quit smoking, you can do this,
  • 23:59 and if you don't quit smoking, you're gonna die.
  • 24:00 Sometimes people need motivated,
  • 24:02 they need prodded a little bit.
  • 24:04 So, I understand the Gospel text about
  • 24:07 the story of being taken away.
  • 24:08 But here, this is framed as Good News in verse 18 of Chapter 4.
  • 24:14 We're told to encourage one another, to infuse courage.
  • 24:18 And speaking of encouraging one another,
  • 24:20 I don't want to ramble here.
  • 24:21 I want to hear from you.
  • 24:22 No, you're good.
  • 24:23 But I want to speak to the viewers about the words, "one another".
  • 24:26 We all exist in webs of relationships.
  • 24:29 This story is important.
  • 24:32 It's not only important to Zola Levitt Presents
  • 24:33 that we make some new friends,
  • 24:35 but it's important to get the Word out about
  • 24:37 God, what He is up to in the world today.
  • 24:40 Would you please encourage your friends, neighbors and co-workers
  • 24:46 to take a look at the Good Book with Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 24:48 We're on social media,
  • 24:50 we're on television.
  • 24:52 Talk about the program and let them know there's a new world dawning,
  • 24:56 and Zola Levitt Presents is going to give insights
  • 24:59 on how that new world is arising.
  • 25:01 That's right.
  • 25:02 I may be off here, forgive me,
  • 25:04 but I'm not sure if I'm hearing a whole lot about
  • 25:07 Rapture in the pulpit these days.
  • 25:09 Well, there's less and less I think.
  • 25:12 People think, "Well those crazies".
  • 25:14 Listen, I frankly was embarrassed to talk about Bible prophecy
  • 25:18 because there's so many crazies out here
  • 25:20 in the market place of ideas.
  • 25:22 I remember I sat down and had a conversation
  • 25:25 with the Advisor in my doctoral program, Billy Abraham,
  • 25:28 who took his PHD out of Oxford University.
  • 25:31 I did my dissertation under him and I said,
  • 25:34 You know, I don't want to talk so much about Bible prophecy because
  • 25:37 it's so riddled with conjecture,
  • 25:39 and I don't want to be associated with the crazies.
  • 25:41 I thought he'd go in his English accent,
  • 25:43 "Well, yes Jeffrey you have a point."
  • 25:45 But he said, "No Jeff, listen.
  • 25:46 "All the more there's a need for people
  • 25:49 that want to be responsible theologians
  • 25:52 to offer a cogent telling of these things.
  • 25:54 Because if those of us that are more
  • 25:57 responsibly trained in theology don't give voice to these things,
  • 26:01 then we give it over to the crazies by default.
  • 26:04 Which is one of the reasons why I say,
  • 26:06 not just in talking to you,
  • 26:07 but in talking to you!
  • 26:09 Please tell your friends to join me, we, us,
  • 26:12 as we unpack truths in Biblical literature
  • 26:16 that are relevant for you today.
  • 26:19 And I like that word "truth".
  • 26:20 I know you're about to say something..sorry.
  • 26:22 because we've seen the crazies.
  • 26:23 The crazies make the news.
  • 26:25 Not all of this.
  • 26:26 The crazies make the news in saying,
  • 26:28 He's coming on October!
  • 26:30 Here's the date.
  • 26:31 And we can't predict cause it said, no man knows.
  • 26:34 Only the Son of Man, right?
  • 26:36 What are the pastors gonna think of that?
  • 26:37 It's Scripture and it's relevant for today.
  • 26:40 And that's what we're all about on Zola Levitt Presents.
  • 26:43 The Hebrew word emit comes from the
  • 26:45 first letter of the Hebrew Alphabet,
  • 26:47 the middle letter of the Hebrew Alphabet,
  • 26:49 and the last letter of the Hebrew Alphabet,
  • 26:52 to pull it all together.
  • 26:54 And that's what we want to do in these programs
  • 26:57 with our guests,
  • 26:58 and here our guests is our Founder really,
  • 27:00 who is speaking to us from the grave with an older series.
  • 27:03 But the name of the game is get the story straight
  • 27:06 and get the story out.
  • 27:07 That's good.
  • 27:08 I can't believe how quick this went today.
  • 27:10 It's time to end our program - end us.
