  • 00:46 David Hart: Hi, I'm David Hart.
  • 00:47 Welcome to "Zola Levitt Presents."
  • 00:49 Kirsten: And I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 00:50 This is the last program in our series, "Thy Kingdom Come."
  • 00:53 It's been a fantastic series with our founder, Zola Levitt.
  • 00:57 David: That's right.
  • 00:58 He's been teaching on the end times for believers.
  • 01:00 And if you've missed any of our past programs,
  • 01:02 you can go to levitt.com and see all of our past programs.
  • 01:05 We'd love for you to join us on there.
  • 01:07 Kirsten: And this series first aired in 2001,
  • 01:09 Zola passed on to his reward in 2006,
  • 01:12 so it's just kind of a treat for us, right, to be able
  • 01:15 to see Zola in the day, in the prime teaching.
  • 01:18 And today's program will be taking you to a recording studio
  • 01:23 to hear from Zola, all about the music that he wrote
  • 01:26 and produced for this series.
  • 01:28 Let's go to Zola now.
  • 01:31 Zola Levitt: Shalom, hello again.
  • 01:33 I'm speaking to you from the studio where we prepare the
  • 01:35 music for our series, and this, of course, is the last program
  • 01:39 in our series, "Thy Kingdom Come,"
  • 01:41 the future of the believers.
  • 01:43 We've been detailing the happy events that come to pass
  • 01:46 for believers in our Lord, and that is a happy thing to do
  • 01:51 and music is too.
  • 01:53 You know, in every series we make,
  • 01:55 we're very careful with the music.
  • 01:56 We record it very professionally.
  • 01:58 I'm going to discuss how this equipment works.
  • 02:01 It's gotten smaller and smaller over the years.
  • 02:03 And would you believe behind me is an effect
  • 02:05 of New York Philharmonic?
  • 02:07 These machines can reproduce orchestrations
  • 02:10 in the most thrilling way.
  • 02:13 And we come down here, typically I play the oboe,
  • 02:16 and the Lord gives me the music, and we share it with you on each
  • 02:21 series and we put beautiful video pictures with it.
  • 02:25 Our crew is really to be congratulated
  • 02:27 for the gorgeous pictures of Israel they take.
  • 02:30 They're not like the pictures you see on CNN, of course,
  • 02:32 they're the real Israel, and put with this music,
  • 02:36 I think it makes quite a nice experience.
  • 02:38 So sit back and enjoy.
  • 02:40 We're going to play our songs for you and the beautiful scenes
  • 02:43 of Israel that go with them so well.

  • 09:06 male: Our founder, Zola Levitt,
  • 09:08 established this ministry in 1979.
  • 09:11 Today, we continue bringing you the good news of Messiah
  • 09:15 and the truth about Israel via television, our newsletter,
  • 09:19 and the Internet.
  • 09:21 If you believe that this Bible-teaching ministry is
  • 09:24 worthy of your assistance, then please call us at 1-800-WONDERS,
  • 09:29 or visit us at levitt.com.
  • 09:32 We sincerely appreciate your prayers
  • 09:34 and your financial support.
  • 09:38 David: Once again we'd love to just thank you so much
  • 09:40 for your continued support for Zola Levitt Ministries.
  • 09:43 We couldn't do what we do without your support.
  • 09:45 Thank you.
  • 09:47 Kirsten: I love this whole series.
  • 09:48 We're learning about Zola.
  • 09:49 And today, in fact, we're learning more about his life
  • 09:53 as a professional musician.
  • 09:55 David: Right, oboe player.
  • 09:57 Kirsten: Right, with the Pittsburgh symphony.
  • 09:58 I play cello, and so I--
  • 10:00 David: Yes, you love orchestras.
  • 10:01 Kirsten: I do.
  • 10:03 And I love the classical music, and that was Zola's heart
  • 10:05 combined with ministry.
  • 10:06 So now let's go back in the recording studio to hear more
  • 10:09 of Zola's story as a professional musician.
  • 10:14 Zola: You know, when I was saved,
  • 10:15 I was a professional musician.
  • 10:17 My instrument was the oboe.
  • 10:19 This is an oboe and-- this looks like a clarinet,
  • 10:22 but it's quite different.
  • 10:23 It's got a double reed that is two pieces of sugarcane are tied
  • 10:27 together, literally, and it's like your two vocal cords.
  • 10:32 It vibrate--the reeds vibrate together and make
  • 10:34 a very emotional and beautiful sound.
  • 10:37 And that is the instrument you're hearing as the solo on
  • 10:40 all of the pieces that are playing in the series of course.
  • 10:44 And you know, since the Lord gave me this profession,
  • 10:47 I was in the New Orleans Symphony
  • 10:50 and the San Antonio Symphony before I was saved,
  • 10:53 and I went through music school.
  • 10:55 I went 10 years to music school and--
  • 10:59 I use that talent, then, as I can in the ministry
  • 11:03 to compose the music the Lord gives me and play the oboe.
  • 11:07 The reeds are remarkable contraption because
  • 11:12 by itself it sounds like this...
  • 11:18 and put it in the oboe sounds like this...
  • 11:27 So the pieces that I'm playing are not necessarily
  • 11:33 made for the oboe.
  • 11:34 I compose them on the piano.
  • 11:36 But look, it saves costs and I enjoy it, and I hope you do too.
  • 11:41 So back to our music and our pictures of Israel
  • 11:44 and some oboe songs.
