Episode: “Assault on Israel”
Visiting Dor on Israel’s coast, Zola paints a picture of Israel’s ancient enemies, the Phoenicians and Philistines. He highlights the many assaults from foreign powers against God’s chosen nation and suggests that the coming Antichrist may be of Greco-Syrian heritage.
Series: “Age of Terror”
When God chose Israel as His people, He not only placed them at the crossroads of history, but also at the center of the empires of their times. Time, and again, this little country has endured siege and upheaval, destruction and exile, only to rise from the ashes and start anew. In this series, Zola is joined in the studio by Walid Shoebat, an ex-Muslim terrorist who was born in Bethlehem. Walid provides unique insights into the world of terrorism and sounds a clear trumpet of warning concerning the days ahead. His testimony of faith is poignant and his view of Biblical prophecy commands attention.

Caption transcript for Age of Terror: “Assault on Israel” (1/8)

  • 00:28 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN, WELCOME TO OUR NEW SERIES, "AGE OF TERROR".
  • 00:33 I'M SORRY WE HAVE TO MAKE A SERIES CALLED THAT, BUT WE REALLY DO.
  • 00:37 AND OUR EXPERT, OUR GUEST IS >>WALID SHOEBAT, WHO YOU'VE HEARD >>ON THIS PROGRAM BEFORE.
  • 00:43 HE'S A BEAUTIFUL, BORN AGAIN, FORMER TERRORIST, MUSLIM
  • 00:49 WHO HAS COME TO CHRIST AND HE'S TOLD HIS STORY ON OUR PROGRAM BEFORE
  • 00:54 AND WE ASKED HIM BACK TO TALK >>ABOUT THIS FASCINATING SUBJECT.
  • 00:57 WE'LL START, THOUGH, ON LOCATION IN ISRAEL AT DOR,
  • 01:02 A LITTLE CITY ON THE MEDITERRANEAN COAST
  • 01:06 AND WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT IT ON LOCATION.
  • 01:08 LET'S GO THERE NOW.
  • 01:09 WELL, THEME OF THIS PROGRAM IS >>FOREIGN ASSAULTS ON ISRAEL
  • 01:15 AND THEY'VE GONE ON FOR ALL TIMES.
  • 01:18 I MEAN, IN THE UNITED STATES
  • 01:19 WE HAVE ENJOYED MORE THAN 200 YEARS OF BASICALLY,
  • 01:23 WELL, WE WERE ATTACKED EARLY ON BY THE BRITISH
  • 01:26 AND MORE RECENTLY BY THE MUSLIMS,
  • 01:28 BUT IN BETWEEN, NO FOREIGN PEOPLES, FORTUNATELY HAVE ATTACKED US.
  • 01:32 WE ARE PROTECTED BY OCEANS AND RELATIVELY FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS.
  • 01:36 BUT, THERE WAS NEVER 2 CENTURIES >>OR ANYTHING LIKE PEACE IN ISRAEL.
  • 01:41 ALL THE WAY FROM THE EXODUS TO MODERN TIMES AND IN THE FUTURE,
  • 01:46 ISRAEL WILL CONSTANTLY BE ASSAULTED.
  • 01:48 WE ARE AT THE SITE KNOWN AS DOR, >>WHICH IS VERY ANCIENT.
  • 01:54 IN THESE OLD SITES, VERY LITTLE IS LEFT STANDING,
  • 01:58 BUT BEHIND ME IS A FORTRESS BUILT BY THE PHOENICIANS,
  • 02:02 SEAFARING PEOPLE FROM MACEDONIA, >>EARLY GREEK PEOPLE
  • 02:06 WHO CAME TO THE COASTLINES OF THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 02:08 AND ESTABLISHED THEIR FISHING VENTURES, SEAGOING TRADE ALONG THE COASTLINES.
  • 02:17 THE PHOENICIANS WENT TO TUNIS AND ESTABLISHED,
  • 02:20 WHAT BECAME CARTHAGE FROM WHERE HANNIBAL CAME.
  • 02:24 THEY DID MALTA.
  • 02:26 THEY CAME DOWN THE COASTLINE ON THIS SIDE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN,
  • 02:29 DOWN THROUGH LEBANON AND AS FAR SOUTH AS WHERE WE ARE
  • 02:33 ABOUT CAESAREA ON THE ISRAELI COAST.
  • 02:36 IT WAS AFTER THE EXODUS, WHICH ITSELF WAS A KIND OF ASSAULT ON THE HOLY LAND,
  • 02:41 BUT THIS WAS A GODLY ASSAULT.
  • 02:42 GOD COMMANDED THE HEBREWS TO >>TAKE THIS LAND AND SO THEY DID.
  • 02:46 AS THEY WERE DOING IT >>PRACTICALLY, BETWEEN THE EXODUS >>AND KING DAVID'S TIME
  • 02:51 THESE PHOENICIANS AND ALSO MACEDONIAN PEOPLE KNOWN AS PHILISTINES
  • 02:57 ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES ALONG THE COASTS.
  • 03:01 HERE WE HAVE THE FORTRESS.
  • 03:04 THESE THICK STONES INDICATE >>THE WALL OF A DEFENSIVE FORTRESS
  • 03:08 TO PROTECT THIS AREA AGAINST A SEASIDE ATTACK.
  • 03:12 THE ASSAULTS AFTER THIS, ONCE THEY WERE ESTABLISHED HERE
  • 03:16 AND THEY FOUGHT AND INTERMARRIED >>WITH INLAND PEOPLES FOR CENTURIES,
  • 03:20 THE ASSYRIANS CAME AND CARRIED >>AWAY THE 10 NORTHERN TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 03:26 THEN THE BABYLONIANS CAME AND >>WRECKED THE TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM
  • 03:29 AND TOOK AWAY THE SOUTHERN TRIBES.
  • 03:30 THE PERSIANS RULED FOR AWHILE >>AND THEN GREECE WITH ALEXANDER >>THE GREAT,
  • 03:37 WHO CAME THROUGH HERE AND CONQUERED THE AREA
  • 03:40 AND THERE'S A LEGENDARY STORY >>ABOUT HIS APPROACH TO JERUSALEM
  • 03:43 AND HE HAD A DREAM OF AN ANGEL IN WHITE APPAREL COMING TO TELL >>HIM TO SPARE THE CITY
  • 03:49 AND WHEN HE DID APPROACH JERUSALEM WITH A REGIMENT BEHIND HIM,
  • 03:53 THE HIGH PRIEST FROM THE TEMPLE >>CAME OUT IN HIS WHITE ROBE
  • 03:59 AND IT PUT ALEXANDER IN MIND OF HIS DREAM AND HE DID NOT ASSAULT JERUSALEM, AS A MATTER OF FACT.
  • 04:06 WE HAVE A CHAPTER THOUGH, OF ASSAULTS ON JERUSALEM
  • 04:11 FROM THAT TIME AND THAT IS DANIEL, CHAPTER 8.
  • 04:15 FASCINATING.
  • 04:24 THIS IS ALEXANDER.
  • 04:26 IT EARLIER SAYS
  • 04:37 IT TELLS THE STORY OF THE MACEDONIAN CONQUERING OF THIS PART OF THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 04:43 WHEN ALEXANDER DIED, >>WHEN THE GREAT HORN WAS BROKEN,
  • 04:52 HISTORICALLY ALEXANDER'S CONQUERINGS WERE DIVIDED IN 4 PARTS,
  • 04:57 THE AREA AROUND DOWN SOUTH TOWARD EGYPT,
  • 04:59 SAY INLAND IN MESOPOTAMIA, THE NORTHERN AREA UP IN LEBANON, ETC
  • 05:04 AND THE SOUTHERN AREA HERE AROUND ISRAEL.
  • 05:07 THAT'S VERY APPROXIMATE, BUT IT WAS DRAWN IN QUARTERS
  • 05:10 DIFFERENT LOCAL GENERALS WERE PUT IN CHARGE OF THOSE AREAS
  • 05:16 AND THE PROPHECY GOES ON TO DISCUSS ONE OF THOSE.
  • 05:34 THE SCOFIELD NOTE HERE SAYS, THE LITTLE HORN HERE
  • 05:37 IS A PROPHECY FULFILLED IN ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES 175 B.C.
  • 05:43 WHO PROFANED THE TEMPLE AND TERRIBLY PERSECUTED THE JEWS.
  • 05:47 ANTIOCHUS DID EXACTLY THAT, >>HE CAME AND WENT INTO THE TEMPLE >>IN JERUSALEM
  • 05:54 AND HE SACRIFICED A PIG ON THE >>ALTAR, WHICH HOPELESSLY DESECRATED THE PLACE.
  • 06:00 THE MACABEES THREW HIM OUT AFTERWARD
  • 06:02 AND HE ESTABLISHED THE IDEA OF THE INCOMING EUROPEAN CONQUEROR
  • 06:10 AND WHAT'S SO INTERESTING IN THE CHAPTER FROM A PROPHETIC POINT OF VIEW
  • 06:15 IS THAT HE IS A TYPE OR A SYMBOL, AN ILLUSTRATION OF THE ANTICHRIST TO COME
  • 06:21 BECAUSE HE DID EXACTLY WHAT THE >>ANTICHRIST WILL DO.
  • 06:23 HE WENT INTO THE TEMPLE OF JERUSALEM, DECLARED THAT HE IS GOD
  • 06:27 AND HE EVEN STRUCK A COIN CALLED >>ANTIOCHUS EPHIPHANES
  • 06:34 AND IT HAD A WORD MEANING "HE IS GOD",
  • 06:38 BUT THE JEWS DID A PUN ON IT AND >>IT MEANT "HE IS CRAZY" IN THEIR LANGUAGE.
  • 06:43 BUT, IN ANY CASE, HE WAS VERY LIKE THE ANTICHRIST AND DANIEL JUSTIFIES THAT
  • 06:49 BECAUSE HERE IS HOW HE DESCRIBES >>ANTIOCHUS' EXCESSES IN THE TEMPLE,
  • 07:07 WELL, WE'RE REMINDED OF DANIEL >>9:27 ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 07:10 IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK HE'LL >>CAUSE THE SACRIFICE ON THE OBLATION TO CEASE.
  • 07:16 AND HE'S GOING TO DO THE SAME THING.
  • 07:18 FINALLY, LATER IN THE CHAPTER OF >>DANIEL 8, HE ACTUALLY SAYS,
  • 07:22 HE DIGRESSES WHILE TALKING ABOUT THIS GRECO-SYRIAN CONQUEROR ANTIOCHUS
  • 07:29 TO TALK ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 07:43 THIS IS NOT ANTIOCHUS, THIS IS >>DEFINITELY,
  • 07:45 AS HE SAYS THE LATTER TIME, THIS IS THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 07:53 THE ANTICHRIST, OF COURSE, MOTIVATED BY SATAN HIMSELF.
  • 08:04 THESE THINGS THE ANTICHRIST WILL DO.
  • 08:13 AND HERE'S THE PHRASE THAT'S TOTALLY CONVINCING OF THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 08:20 BUT, THE ANTICHRIST WILL NOT >>TRIUMPH AGAINST THE REAL CHRIST >>BECAUSE DANIEL GOES ON
  • 08:31 SO THE ANTICHRIST KINGDOM FINALLY WILL FALL
  • 08:34 AS AT THE END OF THE UPCOMING TRIBULATION PERIOD.
  • 08:38 WELL, BACK AT OUR HISTORICAL--
  • 08:40 AFTER DOR WAS ESTABLISHED AND >>ASSYRIA, BABYLONIA, PERSIA AND >>GREECE CAME HERE,
  • 08:45 THE MIGHTY ROME TOOK OVER THIS >>PLACE IN THE 2ND AND 1ST CENTURIES B.C.
  • 08:51 AND THEN ASSAULTED IT AND DESTROYED THE TEMPLE IN THE 1ST CENTURY A.D.
  • 08:55 AND WILL COME AGAIN, I SUPPOSE, >>IN THE 21ST CENTURY, A.D., THE TIME WE LIVE NOW.
  • 09:01 THAT IS, THE ANTICHRIST IS TO BE >>OUT OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE,
  • 09:06 THAT'S AN INDICATION IN ANOTHER >>DANIEL CHAPTER,
  • 09:09 OUT OF THIS 10 NATION CONFEDERACY OF EUROPE,
  • 09:11 BUT, BECAUSE OF ANTIOCHUS, IT APPEARS HE IS OF A GRECO-SYRIAN HERITAGE.
  • 09:16 IF YOU FOLLOW ME, HE COULD BE A >>MUSLIM WHO HAS RECEIVED POWER SOMEHOW IN ISRAEL,
  • 09:23 IN ROME OR HE COULD JUST BE A GRECO-SYRIAN.
  • 09:26 WE HAD AN INDIVIDUAL ON OUR >>PROGRAM YEARS AGO, WALID PHARES,
  • 09:30 WHO I THOUGHT HE WAS ARAB >>AND I TOLD HIM SO AND HE SAID,
  • 09:35 "I AM PHOENICIAN."
  • 09:36 WELL, I SAID, THERE HASN'T BEEN >>ANY PHOENICIAN PEOPLE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS,
  • 09:39 HE SAID, "THERE WERE NO ARABS WHEN MY FOREFATHERS WERE ON THESE COASTS
  • 09:45 AND I COME FROM LEBANON, BUT I COME FROM THE PHOENICIAN STOCK."
  • 09:48 AS A MATTER OF FACT HE SORT OF >>HAD AN APPEARANCE LIKE THAT.
  • 09:52 HE DID NOT LOOK LIKE A DESERT >>ARAB, HE LOOKED LIKE A EUROPEAN
  • 09:55 WITH SOME MIDDLE EASTERN BLOOD AND THAT IS HOW THE ANTICHRIST >>IS CHARACTERIZED.
  • 10:00 I'M NOT DICTATING THAT, BUT, THAT'S THE HINT IN SCRIPTURE
  • 10:03 AND DR. MCCALL AND I HAVE WRITTEN THAT IN OUR BOOK "SATAN IN THE SANCTUARY"
  • 10:08 AND THAT'S BEEN UNCHALLENGED FOR 30 YEARS.
  • 10:11 OF COURSE, PEOPLE GUESS AT THE >>IDENTITY OF THE ANTICHRIST, >>THAT'S A PRETTY HOPELESS GAME.
  • 10:15 BUT, THESE HERITAGES THAT YOU CAN GATHER FROM PROPHECY ARE VERY CONVINCING.
  • 10:22 THE IDEA OF HIS BEING A MUSLIM >>IS ESPECIALLY TEMPTING
  • 10:26 IN A TIME WHEN MUSLIMS ARE ASSAULTING,
  • 10:28 NOT JUST ISRAEL IN THE FORM OF THE PALESTINIANS,
  • 10:32 BUT, THE WHOLE WORLD, EVEN AMERICA.
  • 10:34 WELL, AFTER THE BYZANTINES CAME, >>THESE MUSLIMS,
  • 10:40 THEY STARTED IN THE 7TH CENTURY
  • 10:43 AFTER CHRISTIAN PEOPLE LIVED IN >>ISRAEL FOR A TIME FROM EUROPE
  • 10:47 THEN THE MUSLIMS CAME IN AND THEY ARE STILL IN THE LAND.
  • 10:50 BUT, THE PALESTINIANS ARE NOT THE ANCIENT PHILISTINES.
  • 10:55 THIS IS ESTABLISHED BY ARAFAT AND HIS CREW
  • 10:59 THAT THEY DESCEND FROM THE PHILISTINE.
  • 11:01 THAT'S COMPLETELY CRAZY.
  • 11:02 THERE WERE NO ARABS IN THE WORLD >>WHEN THE PHILISTINES CAME TO THESE COASTS
  • 11:05 AND THE PHILISTINES WERE COUSINS OF THESE PHOENICIANS WHO BUILT >>THIS FORTRESS
  • 11:11 AND THEY BUILT THE SIMILAR ONES >>IN GAZA.
  • 11:13 THEY INTERMARRIED OR TRIED TO INTERMARRY WITH THE HEBREWS.
  • 11:16 THAT PROBABLY WASN'T AS >>SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE THE HEBREWS HAD A LAW AGAINST INTERMARRIAGE.
  • 11:22 SAMSON COURTED DELILAH.
  • 11:24 THEY DID NOT MARRY.
  • 11:25 DELILAH WAS A PHILISTINE.
  • 11:27 SAMSON, OF COURSE, A JUDGE OF ISRAEL.
  • 11:30 BUT, IN NO CASE DO THESE ARABS, WHO CALL THEMSELVES PALESTINIANS
  • 11:35 DESCEND FROM ANY OF THESE GREEKS WHO CAME DOWN,
  • 11:38 THE PHOENICIANS, THE PHILISTINES, ETC.
  • 11:40 IT'S ONLY A RE-USE OF THE NAME >>BY THE ROMAN EMPEROR HADRIAN IN 135 A.D.
  • 11:46 HE WENT BACK IN HISTORY AND PULLED UP AN ANNOYING ENEMY OF ISRAEL, THE PHILISTINES,
  • 11:52 AND USED THEIR NAME TO CALL ISRAEL, PALESTINE FOR AWHILE.
  • 11:56 IT WAS CHANGED BACK IN 1948.
  • 11:58 A FINAL ASSAULT AT THE END OF TIME, IF YOU CALL IT THAT,
  • 12:02 IS THE MESSIAH, WHO WILL COME HERE AND ESTABLISH THE FINAL KINGDOM IN ISRAEL,
  • 12:09 THE 1000 YEAR KINGDOM ON EARTH.
  • 12:10 SO, WE BEGIN WITH THE EXODUS, >>A GODLY ENTRANCE INTO THIS LAND
  • 12:15 COMMANDED BY GOD HIMSELF AND A HOLY THING
  • 12:18 AND END WITH THE MESSIAH HIMSELF >>COMING DOWN IN GOD'S WILL
  • 12:22 AND ESTABLISHING A 1000 YEAR KINGDOM.
  • 12:25 AT LAST, 1000 YEARS OF PERFECT >>PEACE IN ISRAEL.

  • 13:53 YES SIR.
  • 13:54 AND YOUR MOTHER SAID--
  • 13:55 YOU FASCINATED ME RIGHT BEFORE >>THE PROGRAM.
  • 13:57 YOUR NAME, "SHOEBAT", I'M NOT VERY GOOD IN ARABIC,
  • 14:00 IT MEANS OF THE BRANCHES, OF THE TRIBES.
  • 14:03 SOMEHOW I THINK IN THE BACK OF MY MIND,
  • 14:08 WE COULD BE RELATED TO THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 14:10 WE HAVE MANY TRADITIONS THAT WE >>KEPT IN OUR FAMILY,
  • 14:13 EATING THE LAMB STANDING UP WITH THE MEN'S CANES IN THEIR HAND.
  • 14:18 LIKE IN THE EXODUS. >>EXACTLY.
  • 14:20 I DIDN'T KNOW THAT.
  • 14:21 NONE OF MY FAMILY KNEW THESE THINGS.
  • 14:22 THEY GO AND CROSS THE JORDAN RIVER TO COMMEMORATE MOSES, BUS LOAD AND THEY DANCED.
  • 14:28 DANCING IS NOT PART OF ISLAM.
  • 14:30 ALL OUR WEDDING SONGS WERE ALL >>ABOUT DAVID AND SOLOMON,
  • 14:34 TAKING THE BRIDE OVER TO DAVID, >>TAKING THE BRIDE OVER TO SOLOMON.
  • 14:37 I SAID, WE'RE MUSLIMS, HOW COME >>WE DON'T MENTION MOHAMMED IN OUR WEDDING SONGS
  • 14:42 AND MY GRANDMOTHER SAID, WE DON'T HAVE ANY SONGS
  • 14:44 THAT HAVE THE PROPHET MOHAMMED, >>THE PROPHET OF ISLAM IN THEM.
  • 14:47 SO MANY THINGS, BURNING WHEAT, >>WHEN WE DO THE WHEAT HARVEST
  • 14:52 IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COURTYARD >>OF THE HOUSE
  • 14:53 AND YOU SACRIFICE THE WHEAT, SO IT'S A LIKE A MINHAU.
  • 14:57 THIS IS VERY JEWISH. >>VERY JEWISH.
  • 14:59 SO, PUTTING THE BLOOD--
  • 15:01 IN FACT, WE USED TO DIG THE FOUNDATION TO HIT THE ROCK,
  • 15:06 YOU PUT YOUR FIRST STONE ON THE ROCK,
  • 15:09 SO YOU BUILD YOUR FOUNDATION ON THE ROCK AND BEFORE YOU DO THAT
  • 15:12 YOU TAKE THE BLOOD OF A LAMB AND YOU POUR IT ON THE FOUNDATION STONE.
  • 15:16 AS A MATTER OF FACT, THEY USED >>TO BURY THE WHOLE LAMB
  • 15:19 AND SO EVEN WHEN YOU BUILD A ROOF,
  • 15:21 THEN YOU PUT BLOOD OF THE LAMB >>ON THE DOORPOSTS, THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB.
  • 15:25 ON THE DOORPOST. >>ON THE DOORPOST.
  • 15:26 (SPEAKING HEBREW) THAT IS VERY ISRAELI.
  • 15:29 RIGHT.
  • 15:29 ALTHOUGH JUDAISM DON'T PRACTICE >>A LOT OF THESE TRADITIONS
  • 15:33 AND A LOT OF THESE CUSTOMS, WE CARRIED THEM ON.
  • 15:36 SO, I HAVE A SUSPICION IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD
  • 15:38 THAT WE COULD BE JEWISH ALSO THE GENETICS,
  • 15:42 WE HAVE THE FMF, FAMILIAN MEDITERRANEAN FEVER,
  • 15:47 WHICH IS A DEFICIENCY OF CHROMOSOME 16.
  • 15:49 THEY FOUND OUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT CAME OUT OF SEPHARDIC JEWS, >>3000 YEARS AGO.
  • 15:55 THAT'S WHY THERE'S ARABS WHO >>HAVE IT, ARMENIAN WHO HAVE IT,
  • 15:58 TURKS WHO HAVE IT AND DRUZE WHO HAVE IT.
  • 16:01 THE DRUZE PEOPLE IN ISRAEL.
  • 16:03 SO, IT IS HEAVY IN THESE POPULATIONS,
  • 16:06 BUT THE HEAVIEST IS AMONG THE SEPHARDIC JEWS.
  • 16:09 SO, THERE'S A LINK SOMEWHERE. >>GENETICS DON'T LIE.
  • 16:13 SO, THERE'S A RELATION THERE.
  • 16:15 THAT'S FASCINATING.
  • 16:16 IT'S SORT OF OUR SUBJECT HERE.
  • 16:18 WHEN WE WENT TO DOR, AS I SAID ON LOCATION,
  • 16:21 I WAS BOWLED OVER BY HOW OLD >>THINGS ARE AND HOW THEY'RE ALL >>RELATED TO EACH OTHER,
  • 16:26 THAT THESE PHOENICIAN SAILORS >>BROUGHT BACK BUDDHAS AND SO ON >>FROM THE FAR EAST.
  • 16:32 THE WORLD IS REALLY KIND OF A SMALLER PLACE THAN IT WAS IN ANCIENT DAYS, THAN WE THINK.
  • 16:39 THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 16:40 YOU HAVE HAMIDIC PEOPLE >>WHO WENT OVER TO THE AMERICAS, >>THE INCAS, ALL OVER.
  • 16:45 THE DESCENDENTS OF HAM, SO YOU HAVE BIG TRAVEL.
  • 16:50 WELL, THE GRECO-SYRIAN CONNECTION FROM DOR,
  • 16:54 THAT FASCINATES ME, >>FOR REASONS OF THE ANTICHRIST.
  • 16:58 DEVELOP THAT A LITTLE BIT FOR ME.
  • 17:01 WELL, YOU HAVE A CONNECTION IN >>DANIEL 9 BETWEEN DANIEL 8-11
  • 17:08 OVER THE ANTICHRIST WHO'S CALLED >>AS WELL, THE LITTLE HORN.
  • 17:11 THE SCRIPTURES ELUDE TO THE LITTLE HORN COMING OUT OF THE GRECIAN EMPIRE,
  • 17:17 WHICH WAS REPLACING THE ORIGINAL >>HORN BROKEN FOR--
  • 17:22 ALEXANDER. >>ALEXANDER'S EMPIRE.
  • 17:24 ALEXANDER THE GREAT IS NOT FROM CYPRESS.
  • 17:27 HE'S THE MACEDONIAN. HE'S FROM MACEDONIA.
  • 17:29 IF YOU LOOK AT THE ISLAMIC MAP, >>IF YOU LOOK YOU SEE THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
  • 17:36 AND YOU SUPER IMPOSE THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE ON THE MAP
  • 17:39 YOU WILL GET EXACTLY THE BORDERS OF THE GRECIAN EMPIRE AS WELL.
  • 17:43 CAN YOU SHOW US?
  • 17:44 WHICH PREDOMINATES THIS AREA FROM ALL THE WAY HERE,
  • 17:47 IT DOES NOT INCLUDE WESTERN EUROPE
  • 17:48 AND IT GOES DOWN ALL THE WAY PAST TO NORTH AFRICA AS WELL, THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 17:54 BUT, HOWEVER, IT DOESN'T INCLUDE EUROPE.
  • 17:58 SO, SOMEHOW WHEN WE READ SCRIPTURES,
  • 18:00 WE THINK THERE'S A DISCREPANCY >>BETWEEN DANIEL 9 AND DANIEL 8
  • 18:03 BECAUSE THE ANTICHRIST BEING FROM THE GRECIAN EMPIRE >>OR BEING FROM THE ROMAN EMPIRE,
  • 18:08 WHICH MOST PEOPLE WHEN THEY >>THINK ROMAN EMPIRE, THEY THINK >>ITALY OR ROME.
  • 18:13 THERE IS--
  • 18:14 THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE THAT SHALL COME.
  • 18:17 THE PRINCE THAT SHALL COME.
  • 18:18 BUT, IF YOU LOOK AT THE TEXT OF >>DANIEL 9,
  • 18:21 THE PRINCE THAT SHALL COME, THE ONES WHO WILL DESTROY THE TEMPLE
  • 18:25 IS TALKING ABOUT THE PRINCE WAY IN THE FUTURE,
  • 18:29 2000 YEARS LATER OR SO.
  • 18:31 THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE WHO IS TO COME
  • 18:33 WILL BE THE ONES TO DESTROY THE CITY AND THE SANCTUARY.
  • 18:38 SO THAT WAS IN 70 A.D.
  • 18:40 TITUS WAS NOT THE FULFILLMENT.
  • 18:42 TITUS WAS A TYPE OF FULFILLMENT.
  • 18:44 THE ROMAN EMPEROR. >>THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 18:46 BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT VERSE 27, >>I BELIEVE,
  • 18:49 IT SAYS, "AND HE WILL ESTABLISH A PEACE COVENANT FOR 7 YEARS."
  • 18:52 WELL, THE HE PERTAINING TO THE PRINCE,
  • 18:54 CANNOT PERTAIN TO TITUS >>BECAUSE TITUS NEVER ESTABLISHED >>A 7 YEAR TREATY.
  • 19:01 SO, IN ORDER TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE,
  • 19:03 IT IS THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE >>WHO IS TO COME,
  • 19:05 THE ONES WHO WILL DESTROY THE TEMPLE IN 70 A.D,
  • 19:08 WHICH WAS THE 10TH ROMAN LEGION.
  • 19:09 IF WE LOOK AT THE 10TH ROMAN >>LEGION, THE PEOPLE OF THE PRINCE
  • 19:14 LET US NOT FORGET TITUS HIMSELF
  • 19:15 WAS HEAD OVER THE EASTERN LEGION >>OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, NOT THE WESTERN.
  • 19:20 SO, IF YOU LOOK AT THE VERY >>PEOPLE THAT DESTROYED THE TEMPLE
  • 19:23 WE COULD FIND OUT WHO THE ANTICHRIST COMES FROM
  • 19:25 BECAUSE IT'S THE PEOPLE OF THE >>PRINCE WHO IS TO COME.
  • 19:30 THIS IS YOUR MOST FASCINATING THEORY.
  • 19:32 GO AHEAD AND TELL ME.
  • 19:32 THEN YOU LOOK AT LEGION 10, >>IT COMPOSED OF SEVERAL COHORTS.
  • 19:36 COHORT PETRONIUM FROM PETRA.
  • 19:40 LET'S NOT FORGET THAT PETRA, >>DOWN FROM SOUTHERN JORDAN.
  • 19:43 THAT'S RIGHT, THOSE ARE THE ARABS.
  • 19:44 BECAUSE PETRA WAS FOUNDED BY THE NABATEAN ARABS.
  • 19:48 ALSO COHORT ARABIA,
  • 19:50 VERY SPELLED OUT IN THE DIVISION OF THE COHORTS IN THAT 10TH LEGION.
  • 19:56 COHORT SYRIA, COHORT THRACIA,
  • 19:59 THESE ARE LOCAL TROOPS PICKED UP >>BY THE ROMANS
  • 20:02 IN THE MANNER THAT WE USE IRAQI SOLDIERS TODAY IN ATTACKING FALLUJAH.
  • 20:09 THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 20:10 YOU USE THE LOCALS WHO CAN SPEAK THE LANGUAGE, WHO KNOW THE TERRAIN.
  • 20:12 SO THE BIBLE WANTED TO BE SPECIFIC THAT WE NAIL IT ON THE HEAD.
  • 20:16 IT'S THE PRINCE WHO WILL BE LEADING THESE PEOPLES,
  • 20:20 THAT'S WHO WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR.
  • 20:21 SO, THERE IS NO CONTRADICTION BETWEEN DANIEL 9, DANIEL 8 AND DANIEL 2
  • 20:26 REGARDING A REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE, THERE IS,
  • 20:28 IT'S TRYING TO BE MORE SPECIFIC, >>THERE IS THE GRECO-ROMAN, IF YOU WILL.
  • 20:33 THE GRECO EMPIRE THAT IS PART OF IT.
  • 20:35 IF YOU LOOK AT ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 9,
  • 20:37 IT TALKS ABOUT RAISING THE CHILDREN OF ZION.
  • 20:41 NOW, ZION IS NOT A DESCENDENT, ZION IS A GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION.
  • 20:44 I WILL RAISE YOUR SONS, OH ZION, >>TO FIGHT AGAINST YOUR SONS, OH YAVON.
  • 20:51 IT'S TRANSLATED IN ENGLISH AS GREEK, GREECE.
  • 20:54 SO IF YOU LOOK AT YAVON, IT IS THE LAND MASS OF WHAT THEY CALL IONIA
  • 21:01 IONIA WILL BE IN THE TURKISH REGIONS OVER HERE, SYRIA AND TURKEY, THAT REGION.
  • 21:09 SO, WHAT IT'S SAYING HERE, FROM THE NORTH COUNTRIES,
  • 21:12 THOSE NATIONS, GOMA AND ALL THESE NATIONS WILL BE ATTACKING ISRAEL
  • 21:17 AND ISRAEL WILL BE VICTORIOUS BECAUSE THE CHILDREN OF ZION WILL BE SET LIKE A BOW.
  • 21:22 IT SAYS I WILL SET EPHRIAM MY BOW, KIND OF THING
  • 21:25 AND I WILL HAVE THIS BATTLE >>WHERE ISRAEL WILL BE VICTORIOUS.
  • 21:28 IF YOU LOOK AT ALL THE REFERENCES REGARDING MESSIAH,
  • 21:31 HE WILL COME FLAMING FROM THE SOUTH.
  • 21:34 WHERE'S HE GOING IF HE'S COMING FROM THE SOUTH?
  • 21:36 HE'S GOING NORTH.
  • 21:37 IN FACT, THERE IS NO REFERENCE >>IN SCRIPTURE
  • 21:39 THAT SAYS THE ANTICHRIST IS COMING FROM THE WEST AT ALL.
  • 21:42 THERE IS NO INVASION FROM THE WEST.
  • 21:44 ALL THE INVASIONS TALK ABOUT AN INVASION COMING FROM THE NORTH.
  • 21:48 THE ARMY OF THE NORTH, SO WE NEED TO FOCUS ON THE NORTH
  • 21:53 AND APPARENTLY WE'RE FOCUSING >>MORE IN THE WEST TOWARDS EUROPE.
  • 21:56 WHILE WE THINK ABOUT EUROPE, WE SEE WHAT'S HAPPENED
  • 21:59 IS REALLY THE FALLING AWAY OF THE CHURCH.
  • 22:02 THERE IS AN INFLUENCE OF ISLAM >>IN EUROPE.
  • 22:05 TURKEY IS TRYING TO JOIN THE EUROPEAN UNION.
  • 22:07 THERE'S A MASS EXODUS OF MUSLIMS >>INTO EUROPE.
  • 22:11 I'VE BEEN TO ENGLAND LATELY AND I WAS SHOCKED
  • 22:14 AT HOW MANY MUSLIM FUNDAMENTALIST ARE WALKING DOWN THE STREETS.
  • 22:17 SO, THE CHURCH IN EUROPE HAS BEEN DILUTED TREMENDOUSLY.
  • 22:20 THIS ALSO IS TRYING TO TAKE AFFECT IN THE UNITED STATES, AS WELL.
  • 22:23 SO, THE FALLING AWAY HAS >>HAPPENED AND IT'S IN EUROPE AND >>THE UNITED STATES, AS WELL.
  • 22:29 LET'S NOT FORGET, THE SCRIPTURE >>CLEARLY SAYS
  • 22:32 THAT THE FALLING AWAY MUST COME FIRST
  • 22:34 SO WE NEED TO LOOK, WHERE IS THE >>FALLING AWAY HAPPENING?
  • 22:36 WALID, YOU'RE THEORIES ARE SO FRESH AND INTERESTING.
  • 22:40 WHAT YOU'VE JUST SAID BASICALLY IS
  • 22:42 THAT THE ANTICHRIST LEGIONS >>THAT WILL ATTACK AND DESTROY THE >>TEMPLE, ETC.
  • 22:46 ARE BASICALLY ARAB TRIBAL OR MUSLIM AREA PEOPLE, NOT REALLY EUROPEAN SOLDIERS.
  • 22:53 IN FACT, ZOLA, I'VE ASKED THAT QUESTION WITH A LOT OF SCHOLARS >>IN THE BIBLE,
  • 22:59 STUDENT OF THE BIBLE AND UNTIL THAT DAY I HAVEN'T GOTTEN AN ANSWER.
  • 23:02 SO, IF ANY OF YOUR VIEWERS HAVE >>REALLY A GOOD ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION,
  • 23:06 I'M WILLING TO ENTERTAIN IT.
  • 23:07 THERE IS NO SINGLE NATION, >>PEOPLE MENTIONED IN SCRIPTURE,
  • 23:12 NOT ONE THAT IS ATTACKING ISRAEL >>AND IS BEING PUNISHED
  • 23:15 OR HAS A BURDEN AGAINST THE KINGS OF ARABIA, THE BURDEN >>AGAINST THE DESERT OF THE SEA.
  • 23:20 ALL THE BURDENS, ALL THESE NATIONS ARE MUSLIM MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE.
  • 23:24 YOU HAVE ALLUSIONS TO THE KINGS >>OF THE EAST BEING FROM CHINA,
  • 23:28 HOWEVER, THE LAST I'VE LEARNED, >>KINGS OF THE EAST FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT,
  • 23:32 THEY CAME TO THE KING IN BETHLEHEM
  • 23:34 AND THEY OFFERED FRANKINCENSE, >>INCENSE AND MYRRH.
  • 23:37 MYRRH REALLY COMES FROM KUWAIT,
  • 23:39 SO YOU HAVE THE KINGS FROM BABYLONIA AND PERSIA
  • 23:43 COMING TO THE KING AND THEY'RE >>OFFERING THESE GIFTS,
  • 23:47 THEY'RE PREDOMINANTLY NOW, IF YOU LOOK AT THE MAP, FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES.
  • 23:50 THEY DIDN'T COME FROM CHINA IN >>FACT; THERE IS A MENTION OF CHINA IN THE BIBLE.
  • 23:54 IT SAYS I WILL BRING MY CHILDREN >>FROM AS FAR AS SINIM, FROM CHINA.
  • 24:00 I ASKED THE QUESTION, WHERE ARE >>THE CURSES AGAINST CHINA?
  • 24:03 WHERE ARE THE CURSES AGAINST ITALY, ROME?
  • 24:06 WHERE ARE THE CURSES AGAINST SPAIN?
  • 24:07 SPAIN IS MENTIONED TWICE, >>ROME IS MENTIONED OVER 15 TIMES, >>NOT A SINGLE CURSE.
  • 24:13 ALRIGHT, HE'S WALID SHOEBAT.
  • 24:15 WE'RE JUST ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
  • 24:17 BUT, HIS THEORY BASICALLY AND >>OTHERS HAVE ARRIVED AT IT FROM A >>DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW,
  • 24:23 BUT, IN AN AGE WHERE WE ARE EXPERIENCING TERROR FROM ONE SOURCE,
  • 24:28 WHICH IS FUNDAMENTALIST ISLAM,
  • 24:30 IT FOLLOWS THAT IF WE ARE GOING >>INTO THE TRIBULATION
  • 24:35 AND WE HAVE OTHER PROPHETIC SIGNS ALL AROUND US,
  • 24:37 THAT THE PRIMARY ANTAGONISTS OF ISRAEL THEN WOULD BE MUSLIMS FORCES.
  • 24:44 HE DEVELOPS HISTORICALLY OUT OF THE BIBLE
  • 24:46 WITH THE CAREFUL READING OF SCRIPTURE
  • 24:48 AND HIS DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF ARABIAN OR ARAB MOVEMENTS,
  • 24:53 MUSLIM MOVEMENTS ALL AROUND THE >>MIDDLE EAST AND FURTHER THAN THE MIDDLE EAST,
  • 24:59 DEVELOPS THAT POINT.
  • 24:59 DO YOU THINK THAT WE'RE GOING >>RIGHT FROM WHAT GOING ON TODAY >>TO THE TRIBULATION?
  • 25:04 IS IT SOON?
  • 25:06 WELL, WE HAVE TO LOOK AT SOME MARKERS.
  • 25:07 I LOOK TOWARDS TURKEY TO SEE WHEN TURKEY JOINS THE EU, AS WELL.
  • 25:11 LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED WITH >>ERDOGAN WHO MADE THE STATEMENTS,
  • 25:16 HE SAYS "THE MOSQUES WILL BE OUR >>REFUGE, THE DOMES OUR HELMETS >>AND THE MINARETS OUR BAYONETS."
  • 25:27 WHAT HE'S SAYING IS THAT WE'RE >>GOING BACK TO JIHAD.
  • 25:30 THIS WAS HIS MEIN KAMPF AND HE >>WAS IMPRISONED FOR IT,
  • 25:34 YET THE MAN GETS ELECTED IN TURKEY.
  • 25:35 SO, IF THE TURKISHEOPLE IN GENERAL ARE REALLY SECULAR >>PEOPLE AND THEY LOVE THE WEST,
  • 25:41 WHY WOULD THEY ELECT A FUNDAMENTALIST INTO POWER?
  • 25:43 YOU HAVE THE REFAH PARTY, THEY'RE INTO POWER.
  • 25:46 AND I SAID THAT IN 1993.
  • 25:47 I WENT AROUND TO CHURCHES SAYING >>TURKEY IS GOING TO ATTACK ISRAEL.
  • 25:52 TURKEY WILL BE AGAINST ISRAEL.
  • 25:54 TURKEY WILL BE ANTI-WESTERN.
  • 25:55 TURKEY WILL NOT HELP THE UNITED STATES.
  • 25:57 MANY PEOPLE JUST SORT OF LAUGHED IT OFF
  • 26:00 AND NOW WE LOOK AT IT, WE HAVE A >>MUSLIM FUNDAMENTALIST.
  • 26:03 IT'S INTERESTING, TURKEY HAS NOT REALLY COOPERATED WITH THE WEST.
  • 26:06 WE WANTED TO PUT SOLDIERS THERE TO ATTACK IRAQ FROM THE NORTH, >>THEY WOULDN'T ALLOW THAT.
  • 26:12 HAVE THEY BEEN FRIENDS TO CHRISTIANS?
  • 26:16 THAT'S WHAT THEY SAY.
  • 26:17 WELL, LET'S NOT FORGET, ZOLA, >>TURKEY WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF 2.8 MILLION CHRISTIANS.
  • 26:24 THE ARMENIANS. >>1.5 MILLION MASSACRED.
  • 26:28 IT LITERALLY HAS THE BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS ON ITS HANDS.
  • 26:34 OK, WALID.
  • 26:34 HE'S GOT THIS ENCYCLOPEDIC KNOWLEDGE OF THE MIDDLE EAST AND ITS BACKGROUND,
  • 26:40 THE ANCIENT HISTORY WHERE ALL THE TRIBES CAME FROM
  • 26:42 AND HE DEVELOPS THE IDEA THAT >>THE UPCOMING TRIBULATION IS ALL >>ABOUT THAT.
  • 26:48 STAY TUNED.
  • 26:48 WE'RE GOING TO HAVE HIM FOR A NUMBER OF PROGRAMS.
  • 26:49 WE'LL BE BACK NEXT WEEK WITH THE HISTORY OF THE WHOLE TEMPLE SITE >>IN JERUSALEM.
  • 26:54 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALYIM, >>PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
