Caption transcript for Age of Terror Continued: “Truth be Told” with Tommy Ice (10/12)

  • 00:27 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:28 BACK TO OUR SERIES ON THE AGE OF >>TERROR, ISLAM AND THE COMING TRIBULATION.
  • 00:34 IN SOME WAYS I'M SORRY WE HAD TO MAKE THIS SERIES, IT'S NOT THE >>HAPPIEST NEWS,
  • 00:38 BUT IN THE MINISTRY WE CHRONICLE >>THE TIMES, WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:42 AND UNFORTUNATELY THAT SEEMS TO BE WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 00:45 OUR GUEST ON THE PROGRAM LATER >>WILL BE TOMMY ICE,
  • 00:48 ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS, A BRILLIANT THEOLOGIAN.
  • 00:50 SO NOW TO LOCATION IN THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:53 WELL, ISRAEL HAS A SPLENDID NEW AIRPORT AND I THOUGHT WE'D FILM HERE BECAUSE,
  • 00:58 I DON'T KNOW, IF YOU LIVE TO BE >>100 YEARS OLD
  • 01:01 YOU PROBABLY WON'T SEE THIS AIRPORT ON CNN
  • 01:04 OR ANY OF OUR NETWORKS FOR THAT MATTER.
  • 01:06 THEY JUST DON'T SHOW THE THINGS THAT ISRAEL REALLY ACCOMPLISHES.
  • 01:10 COMPARE THIS MAGNIFICENT >>TERMINAL WITH THE DUSTY STREETS
  • 01:16 AND THE RIOTING SUCH AS IT IS >>THAT THEY SHOW ON THE NETWORKS
  • 01:20 AND YOU SEE WHAT AN UNBALANCED NEWS COVERAGE THIS COUNTRY GETS.
  • 01:23 FRANKLY, I'VE BEEN AROUND THE WORLD AND I'VE NOT SEEN AN AIRPORT THE EQUAL OF THIS.
  • 01:28 THIS ONE'S BRAND NEW, OF COURSE, >>BUT IT'S BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED AND VERY BUSY,
  • 01:33 FLIGHTS TO MOST OF THE CAPITALS >>OF THE WORLD FROM HERE,
  • 01:37 NOT THE ARAB CAPITALS, OF COURSE, BUT JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE ELSE.
  • 01:42 YOU TRANSFER WHEN YOU FLY TO ARAB CAPITALS AND SO ON.
  • 01:45 BUT, YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST THAT THE PEOPLE HERE HAVE ACCOMPLISHES SO MUCH.
  • 01:52 THIS IS A MAGNIFICENT PHYSICAL PLANT.
  • 01:54 THIS IS SOMETHING THAT COMMENDS >>A PEOPLE.
  • 01:57 THERE'S NOTHING LIKE IT IN THE ARAB WORLD AND I'VE SEEN SOME OF >>THEIR AIRPORTS
  • 02:01 AND THEY ARE TO BE COMMENDED FOR >>ACCOMPLISHING THIS.
  • 02:07 I HAVE A NEWSLETTER HERE, A COMPUTER PAGE, REALLY,
  • 02:11 THE OMEGA LETTER, DAILY INTELLIGENCE BRIEFING,
  • 02:15 JUST HAD ISSUE WITH A LOT OF POINTS TO MAKE.
  • 02:19 AMERICA'S SECOND PRESIDENT, JOHN ADAMS, SAID OF THE JEWS,
  • 02:23 THE JEWS HAVE DONE MORE TO CIVILIZE MEN THAN ANY OTHER NATION.
  • 02:28 THEY ARE THE MOST GLORIOUS NATION THAT EVER INHABITED THE EARTH.
  • 02:32 THE ROMANS AND THE EMPIRE WERE >>BUT A BAUBLE IN COMPARISON TO THE JEWS.
  • 02:37 THEY HAVE GIVEN RELIGION TO 3/4 >>OF THE GLOBE
  • 02:40 AND HAVE INFLUENCED THE AFFAIRS >>OF MANKIND MORE
  • 02:43 AND MORE HAPPILY THAN ANY OTHER >>NATION ANCIENT OR MODERN.
  • 02:49 ALMOST MUST WANT TO SAY, WELL HE'S OVERDOING IT.
  • 02:51 BUT, I THINK HE KNEW A FEW >>THINGS AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE >>UNITED STATES,
  • 02:55 THE SECOND PRESIDENT AFTER GEORGE WASHINGTON.
  • 02:58 ANOTHER STATISTIC FROM 1901-2001 THE WORLD'S 6.5 BILLION PEOPLE
  • 03:06 COMPETED FOR THE SCARCE 844 NOBEL PRIZES THAT HAVE BEEN AWARDED.
  • 03:12 AMONG THOSE 6.5 BILLION ARE NEARLY 1.3 BILLION MUSLIMS,
  • 03:18 ROUGHLY 20% OF THE GLOBAL POPULATION.
  • 03:20 OF THOSE1.3 BILLION MUSLIMS, 8 HAVE BEEN SINGLED OUT TO RECEIVE THE NOBEL PRIZE,
  • 03:29 7 IF YOU CONSIDER THAT 1 OF THEM >>WAS A POLITICALLY MOTIVATED PEACE PRIZE
  • 03:34 GIVEN THE UN-REPENTANT TERRORIST, YASSER ARAFAT.
  • 03:37 MUSLIMS ACCOUNT FOR LESS THAN 1% >>OF THE TOTAL NOBEL PRIZES >>AWARDED IN THE LAST 100 YEARS.
  • 03:45 IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 20TH >>CENTURY, THE NAZIS EXTERMINATED >>SOME 6 MILLION JEWS,
  • 03:51 MORE THAN HALF THE WORLD'S JEWISH POPULATION.
  • 03:53 THERE ARE TODAY ABOUT 14 MILLION >>JEWS LEFT.
  • 03:56 EVEN WITH HALF THEIR NUMBER EXTERMINATED AT THE CENTURY'S MIDPOINT,
  • 04:01 159 OF THE REMAINING 836 NOBEL >>PRIZES WERE AWARDED TO JEWS
  • 04:09 OR ROUGHLY 18.8% OF ALL THE NOBEL PRIZES AWARDED IN NOBEL'S HISTORY.
  • 04:16 YOU KNOW, OUR LEVITT LETTER EVERY MONTH,
  • 04:17 AND BY THE WAY YOU CAN GET A >>LEVITT LETTER JUST BY SENDING US >>YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS,
  • 04:21 THERE'S NO CHARGE, BUT WE CHRONICLE WHAT GOES ON HERE.
  • 04:24 THEY'RE WORKING ON CURES NOW FOR ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE AND PARKINSON'S DISEASE.
  • 04:29 THEY ARE WORKING ON CANCER CURES.
  • 04:31 THEY'VE PROVIDED SO MANY AMERICAN MEDICINES, THEY DON'T WANT CREDIT.
  • 04:35 THEY DON'T WANT TO BE NOTICED, >>THANK YOU, THEY'D RATHER BE LEFT ALONE.
  • 04:38 THEY'RE NOT TRYING TO PLEASE THE >>GENTILES OR WIN AWARDS
  • 04:41 EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GIVEN THE AWARDS.
  • 04:43 SO MANY MEDICINES, YOU KNOW ARE CREATED HERE
  • 04:48 THAT ONE TIME WHEN THE AIRLINE >>LOST MY BAG FOR A DAY OR TWO,
  • 04:53 I HAD HEART PILLS IN THERE AND A >>CARDIOLOGIST ON THE TOUR
  • 04:55 OFFERED TO GO TO AN ISRAELI PHARMACY WITH ME AND TRY TO REPLACE THE DRUGS
  • 05:01 THAT I HAD FROM MY OWN DRUG STORE IN DALLAS WITH ISRAELI EQUIVALENTS.
  • 05:05 WE WENT INTO A PHARMACY AND WE >>SPOKE TO THE PHARMACIST AND I >>TOLD HIM THE NAMES OF THE DRUGS
  • 05:12 AND HE SAID, OK IT'S NO PROBLEM, IT'S MOSTLY ISRAELI MEDICINES.
  • 05:18 WHO KNEW?
  • 05:19 I ALWAYS TELL THE STORY OF >>BUYING A BIG MASON JAR FULL OF >>ERYTHROMYCIN IN JERUSALEM
  • 05:25 FOR $2.50 WHERE BACK HOME IT'S >>DOLLARS PER PILL.
  • 05:29 YOU KNOW, CONTAC, IF YOU TAKE THAT, IS AN ISRAELI MEDICINE.
  • 05:34 I COULD NAME THEM ALL DAY.
  • 05:35 BUT, NEVER MIND, THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO NAME THEM,
  • 05:37 THEY DO NOT WANT THE CREDIT, THEY JUST WANT PEACE.
  • 05:39 PROBABLY THEY DON'T EVEN WANT >>YOU TO SEE THEIR AIRPORT UNLESS YOU COME HERE, BUT HERE IT IS.
  • 05:46 I'M GLAD TO SHOW IT TO YOU.
  • 05:48 IT IS A WONDERFUL ACHIEVEMENT.
  • 05:50 LOOKING FURTHER ON IN THIS OMEGA LETTER,
  • 05:54 IT SAYS HISTORICALLY WHEREVER THE JEWS WERE WELCOMED, THAT >>NATION FLOURISHED AND PROSPERED.
  • 06:02 WHERE THE JEW WAS PERSECUTED, THOSE NATIONS FLOUNDERED.
  • 06:06 IT IS MORE THAN JUST COINCIDENCE;
  • 06:07 IT IS AN IDENTIFIABLE HISTORICAL >>PATTERN THAT HAS CONTINUED WITHOUT DEVIATION
  • 06:13 SINCE THE DAYS OF THE BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY.
  • 06:16 HE GOES ON TO PRESENT UMPTEEN EXAMPLES OF THAT.
  • 06:20 HE SAYS ALTHOUGH AMERICA CONTINUES TO BE ISRAEL'S PRINCIPAL PROTECTOR
  • 06:24 AND CONTINUES TO ENJOY THE >>CONCOMITANT BLESSINGS THAT COME >>WITH IT,
  • 06:29 AMERICA'S GOOD FORTUNES BEGAN TO WANE
  • 06:31 ABOUT THE SAME TIME THE WHITE HOUSE FORCED ISRAEL INTO THE OSLO AGREEMENT.
  • 06:37 THE LAND FOR PEACE FORMULA CALLED FOR ISRAEL
  • 06:39 TO GIVE UP SOME OF THE LAND OF PROMISE IN EXCHANGE FOR PEACE.
  • 06:42 IN OTHER WORDS, IT WAS A FORM OF BLACKMAIL WHOSE TERMS WERE DRAWN >>UP IN WASHINGTON
  • 06:47 AND FORCED UPON ISRAEL FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF UNDOING WHAT >>GOD HAD DONE,
  • 06:53 INCLUDING DIVIDING JERUSALEM AND TAKING PART OF IT FROM THE JEWS.
  • 06:56 FORTUNATELY, THAT DID NOT HAPPEN.
  • 06:58 THE OSLO PEACE PROCESS WENT NOWHERE.
  • 07:01 IF YOU'D HAVE GOTTEN THE >>LEVITT LETTER ON THE FIRST DAY >>OF THE OSLO PROCESS,
  • 07:06 YOU WOULD HAVE READ THAT IT WAS GOING NOWHERE.
  • 07:10 WE PREDICTED THAT.
  • 07:10 IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE ANY SORT >>OF BARGAIN AT LEAST WITH THE PALESTINIAN REGIME,
  • 07:15 WHICH PERHAPS WILL BE CHANGED AT >>THIS TIME OF YASSER ARAFAT'S DEMISE.
  • 07:20 WE'RE NOT SURE, BUT SUCH A THING AS LAND FOR PEACE HAS NEVER BEEN DONE IN THIS WORLD BY ANY NATION
  • 07:29 AND THIS IS ONE OF THE VERY SMALLEST NATIONS.
  • 07:31 THIS WHOLE NATION IS THE SIZE OF >>NEW JERSEY.
  • 07:33 I DOUBT THAT NEW JERSEY HAS AN AIRPORT TO COMPARE WITH THIS ONE.
  • 07:37 IN FACT, I KNOW THEY DON'T. I'VE FLOWN INTO NEWARK, ATLANTIC CITY,
  • 07:40 OTHERS IN NEW JERSEY AND THERE'S >>NOTHING LIKE IT.
  • 07:44 WHAT AM I SAYING? I'M NOT BRAGGING.
  • 07:45 I'M JUST TRYING TO GIVE THE >>BALANCING SIDE TO A COUNTRY THAT >>IS CONSTANTLY MALIGNED,
  • 07:51 THAT HAS ENDLESS REPORTS THAT FAVORS THE PALESTINIAN SIDE
  • 07:56 AND WHY DOES IT FAVOR THE PALESTINIAN SIDE?
  • 07:58 WELL, BECAUSE THE MAJOR NETWORKS >>ARE NOT REALLY ALLOWED TO >>OPERATE AGAINST THE PALESTINIANS
  • 08:07 THEY WILL BE IN REAL TROUBLE >>WITH THEM, I MEAN REAL TROUBLE.
  • 08:11 IF THEY GO TO RAMALLAH, WHERE ARAFAT'S HEADQUARTER IS
  • 08:15 AND THEY WANT TO FILM, THEY HAD >>BETTER FILM THE RIGHT THINGS
  • 08:18 AND SAY THE RIGHT THINGS OR THERE'LL BE RECRIMINATIONS.
  • 08:21 AS TO FILMING IN ISRAEL, IT'S A PERFECTLY FREE COUNTRY LIKE THE >>UNITED STATES
  • 08:26 AND THEY'RE FREE TO FILM WHAT THEY LIKE AND SAY WHAT THEY LIKE.
  • 08:29 SO, AS WE'RE FREE TO DO THAT, WE THOUGHT WE'D SHOW YOU THE AIRPORT.
  • 08:33 I'M VERY PROUD OF IT AND I'M VERY HAPPY TO SHOW IT TO YOU.

  • 09:19 COME TO ISRAEL WITH ZOLA AND FIND THE SPIRITUAL ROOTS OF YOUR FAITH.
  • 09:26 FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION, HE BRINGS THE PROPHETIC
  • 09:31 AND HE BRINGS THE REVELATION TO THE PROPHECY OUT
  • 09:35 AND SHOWS YOU THE PROPHECIES THAT HAVEN'T BEEN FULFILLED
  • 09:38 AND THE PLACES WHERE JESUS IS GOING TO COME BACK
  • 09:40 AND REALLY MOMENTOUS THROUGH OUR LIVES.
  • 09:41 CALL OR WRITE FOR INFORMATION ON ZOLA'S NEXT TOUR TO THE HOLY LAND.
  • 09:52 PSALM 128 IS ALL ABOUT OLIVE TREES IN A WAY.
  • 09:56 IT SAYS BLESSED IS EVERYONE THAT FEARETH THE LORD,
  • 09:58 THAT WALKETH IN HIS WAYS FOR THOU SHALT EAT THE LABOR OF THINE HANDS.
  • 10:03 HAPPY SHALL THOU BE AND IT SHALL BE WELL WITH THEE.
  • 10:05 THY WIFE SHALL BE AS A FRUITFUL >> VINE BY THE SIDES OF THINE HOUSE
  • 10:10 THY CHILDREN LIKE OLIVE PLANTS >> ROUND ABOUT THY TABLE.
  • 10:13 BEHOLD THAT THUS SHALL THE MEN >> BE BLESSED THAT FEARETH THE LORD.
  • 10:20 THE LORD SHALL BLESS THEE OUT OF ZION
  • 10:22 AND THOU SHALL SEE THE GOOD OF JERUSALEM ALL THE DAYS OF THY >> LIFE.
  • 10:25 YE, THOU SHALT SEE THY >> CHILDREN'S CHILDREN AND PEACE >> UPON ISRAEL.
  • 10:31 IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PSALM, THAT'S THE WHOLE THING.
  • 10:33 YOU KNOW, THE ISRAELIS, WE'VE SHOWN YOU THEIR BEAUTIFUL >>BUILDINGS, HIGHWAYS, THEATERS.
  • 10:40 THEY HAVE SATELLITES.
  • 10:42 THEY ARE PERFECTING DRUGS FOR THE WORLD.
  • 10:44 THEY ARE PERFECTING COMPUTERS FOR THE WORLD,
  • 10:45 BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, THEY HAVE OLIVE TREES, TOO AND ALWAYS HAVE HAD.
  • 10:47 WE'VE BEEN LISTENING FOR 30 >>YEARS TO STORIES OF PALESTINIANS TRYING TO PICK OLIVE AND THEY DO
  • 10:56 AND THEN AN ISRAELI BULLDOZER COMES ALONG MAKING A ROAD, DAMAGES AN OLIVE TREE,
  • 11:00 CNN HAS IT ON ALL DAY LONG AND YOU KNOW WHAT, IT GOES THE OTHER >>WAY, TOO.
  • 11:06 ISRAELIS HAVE OLIVE TREES, THEY >>GET DAMAGED BY PALESTINIANS.
  • 11:09 PALESTINIANS SET WHOLE FOREST FIRES IN ISRAEL JUST TO BE ORNERY.
  • 11:13 BUT THIS IS AN OLIVE GROVE THAT >>LIES BETWEEN JERUSALEM AND TEL AVIV
  • 11:18 AND AT THIS POINT IN THE YEAR, >>THEY HAVE ALMOST A FAMILY CEREMONY
  • 11:24 WHERE THE CHILDREN SHAKE THE >>TREES OR BEAT THEM OR WHATEVER,
  • 11:27 THE OLIVES FALL ON THE GROUND, >>THEY ARE PICKED UP IN SORT OF PLASTIC TARPS OR BAGS
  • 11:36 AND BROUGHT TO A COLLECTION POINT AND THROWN IN THERE
  • 11:39 AND FROM THERE, OF COURSE, THEY MAY BE EATEN OR PRESSED INTO OLIVE OIL
  • 11:43 AND IT GOES ON AS A STEADY >>ACTIVITY OUT IN THE COUNTRY AND >>WE WANTED TO SHOW YOU THIS,
  • 11:49 AS WELL AS THE BUILDINGS AND THE FACTORIES AND ALL THE REST OF IT
  • 11:52 AS PART OF DEMONSTRATING AN ISRAEL YOU WOULD NEVER SEE IF YOU WATCH CNN FOR 100 YEARS.
  • 11:59 IN THE CHAPTER, EZEKIEL 36,
  • 12:03 IS ABOUT A SITUATION VERY SIMILAR TO OUR OWN TIME.
  • 12:07 IT ALMOST SEEMS TO BE ABOUT THE >>DIFFICULTIES IN THE WEST BANK
  • 12:10 AND GAZA, PAGANS HEATHEN IN THE >>LAND AND WHATEVER,
  • 12:16 IT'S ADDRESSED IN 36:1 TO THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL.
  • 12:30 AND THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL, >>OF COURSE, IS THE CENTER SPINE >>OF THE COUNTRY,
  • 12:35 WHICH RUNS DIRECTLY THROUGH THE >>WEST BANK, SAMARIA.
  • 12:54 THEREFORE, YE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL, HEAR THE WORD OF THE LORD GOD
  • 12:57 AND HE PROPHESIES TO THE MOUNTAINS AND ENDS UP SAYING IN VERSE 8
  • 13:01 BUT, YE, OH MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL SHALL SHOOT FORTH YOUR BRANCHES
  • 13:04 AND YIELD YOUR FRUITS TO MY >> PEOPLE OF ISRAEL FOR THEY ARE >> AT HAND TO COME
  • 13:11 AND THE STORY OF THE WHOLE >>CHAPTER WITHOUT READING IT ALL
  • 13:14 AND I REALLY RECOMMEND IT TO YOU,
  • 13:16 IT COMES RIGHT BEFORE THE VISION >>OF THE VALLEY OF DRY BONES
  • 13:19 AND THUS IT PLACES IT IN THE END TIMES APPROXIMATELY WHERE WE ARE
  • 13:23 AND IT TALKS ABOUT THE SINS OF >>ISRAEL, THE HEATHEN THAT COME INTO THE LAND
  • 13:30 AND THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL IN THE END.
  • 13:33 THE PAST SINS OF ISRAEL HER FUTURE RESTORATION AND CONVERSION
  • 13:37 ARE COVERED IN THIS ONE CHAPTER.
  • 13:40 IT GOES ALONG AND TALKS ABOUT
  • 13:50 IN OTHER WORDS AT TIMES WHEN ISRAEL WAS IN UNBELIEF
  • 13:54 AND BOASTED STILL TO THE HEATHEN >>THEY WERE THE CHOSEN PEOPLE,
  • 13:59 THEY PROFANED THE NAME OF THE LORD.
  • 14:02 BUT, IN THE END HE SAYS,
  • 14:03 I WILL SAVE YOU FROM ALL YOUR UNCLEANNESS, IN VERSE 29
  • 14:05 I WILL CALL FOR THE CORN AND >> INCREASE IT AND LAY NO FAMINE >> UPON YOU
  • 14:09 AND I WILL MULTIPLY THE FRUIT OF THE TREE AND THE INCREASE OF >> THE FIELD
  • 14:12 THAT YE SHALL RECEIVE NO MORE >> REPROACH OF FAMINE AMONG THE HEATHEN.
  • 14:18 AND AT THE END HE SAYS, AS THE HOLY FLOCK, THAT IS VERSE 38,
  • 14:23 AS THE FLOCK OF ISRAEL IN HER >>SOLEMN FEASTS,
  • 14:26 SO SHALL THE WASTE CITIES BE FILLED WITH FLOCKS OF MEN
  • 14:29 AND THEY SHALL KNOW THAT I AM >> THE LORD.
  • 14:31 AND EZEKIEL'S VERY NEXT VISION >>IS THAT VALLEY OF DRY BONES MEANING
  • 14:35 THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT IN THE DIASPORA WHO ARE BROUGHT TO ISRAEL AND COME TO LIFE
  • 14:41 AND BECOME SPIRITUAL AND FINALLY RECEIVE THE KING
  • 14:45 WHO SETS UP HIS THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM HERE IN ISRAEL.
  • 15:00 WELL, IT WAS FUN TO LOOK AT HOW THE OLIVES, I NEVER KNEW THAT.
  • 15:04 I THOUGHT YOU GOT OLIVE IN A JAR >>AT THE SUPER MARKET.
  • 15:08 I DIDN'T KNOW PEOPLE SHOOK TREES >>AND ALL THE REST OF IT,
  • 15:11 BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW FROM WATCHING OUR TV OR ANYTHING.
  • 15:14 THEY DON'T REPORT ON WHAT THE ISRAELIS ARE DOING.
  • 15:16 THEY MAY REPORT ON AN ISRAELI TRUCK BUMPING A PALESTINIAN OLIVE TREE,
  • 15:21 THAT'S ABOUT THE EXTENT OF IT.
  • 15:23 I WAS GLAD TO SHOW YOU THE NEW >>AIRPORT,
  • 15:25 BUT, TOMMY THAT BRINGS UP A POINT.
  • 15:27 TOMMY ICE IS MY GUEST.
  • 15:28 HE'S AN EXPERT ESPECIALLY IN >>ANTI-SEMITISM AND RESTORATION OF >>THE JEWS TO ISRAEL.
  • 15:35 YOU'VE WRITTEN A NEW BOOK ON THIS.
  • 15:37 HE'S EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE >>PRE-TRIBULATION COUNCILS,
  • 15:42 RESEARCH CENTER, >>RESEARCH CENTER, OK.
  • 15:44 YOU KNOW, THOSE NAMES GET SO FANCY.
  • 15:47 I KNOW.
  • 15:47 TOMMY, WHY DOES THE WORLD IGNORE >>THE POSITIVES IN ISRAEL?
  • 15:53 WHY IS THIS ANTI-SEMITISM COMING >>UP A COUPLE OF GENERATIONS AFTER THE HOLOCAUST?
  • 15:59 WHY IS ALL THAT GOING ON?
  • 16:00 I KNOW, IT'S JUST COMPLETELY IRRATIONAL.
  • 16:02 ALL RACISM IS WRONG.
  • 16:05 BUT I BELIEVE ANTI-SEMITISM IS >>SUPERNATURALLY INSPIRED,
  • 16:09 NOT BY GOD, BUT BY SATAN.
  • 16:11 IN FACT, THE BIBLE INDICATES THAT IN REVELATION CHAPTER 12
  • 16:14 WITH THAT WHOLE CHAPTER TALKING >>ABOUT THE WOMAN FLEEING INTO THE WILDERNESS,
  • 16:18 WHICH REFERS TO ISRAEL, AND HOW SATAN, THE DRAGON
  • 16:21 IS CAST DOWN, OUT AND HE GOES AFTER HER AFTER 3 1/2 YEARS INTO THE TRIBULATION
  • 16:26 AND THE LAST 3 1/2 YEARS THE WHOLE FOCUS OF THAT PERIOD IS ATTACKING ISRAEL,
  • 16:31 WHICH CULMINATES IN THE BATTLE >>OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 16:33 WE COULDN'T GET THEM DURING THE BATTLE OF GOG AND MAGOG WHERE WE >>BROUGHT A REGIONAL FORCE IN,
  • 16:37 WE'RE GOING TO BRING ALL THE ARMIES OF THE WORLD DOWN
  • 16:41 AND WE'RE REALLY TO GET THEM THIS TIME.
  • 16:43 IN FACT, THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS IN MATTHEW 24,
  • 16:45 IF GOD DIDN'T INTERVENE, NO FLESH WOULD BE SAVED, THE JEWS WOULD BE WIPED OUT.
  • 16:51 I TEACH THIS.
  • 16:51 THIS IS MY BREAD AND BUTTER IN THE CHURCHES AND CHURCHES ARE SO >>MISINFORMED ON PROPHECY,
  • 16:58 IT COMES AS BIG NEWS.
  • 16:58 WELL, SO IT IS SATANICALLY >>INSPIRED AND IT'S KIND OF LIKE >>ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER,
  • 17:04 WHO'S THE GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA >>MADE ALL THOSE MOVIES OF HIM BEATING UP THE BAD GUYS,
  • 17:08 YOU KNOW, NO ONE COULD EVER GET RID OF ARNOLD, HE'S TOO TOUGH.
  • 17:12 SO, WHAT DO THEY DO?
  • 17:13 THEY GO AFTER HIS WIFE AND KIDS, >>RIGHT.
  • 17:15 IT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE IN REVELATION 12,
  • 17:17 MICHAEL AND THE ARCHANGELS CAST SATAN AND HIS DEMONS OUT OF HEAVEN,
  • 17:21 THEY'RE CAST DOWN TO THE EARTH >>AND IT SAYS HE ATTACKS THE WOMAN.
  • 17:24 THEY ATTACK GOD'S PEOPLE, WHICH IN THE CONTEXT ARE THE JEWISH BELIEVERS.
  • 17:30 THEY CAN'T BEAT GOD LIKE THEY CAN'T BEAT SCHWARZENEGGER
  • 17:35 BUT THEY CAN GO AFTER GOD'S CHILDREN.
  • 17:37 THAT'S RIGHT AND THAT'S WHAT HE >>DOES AND SINCE HE,
  • 17:41 ESPECIALLY IN THE SECOND HALF OF >>THE TRIBULATION,
  • 17:43 DEVELOPS A GLOBAL COMMUNITY THAT >>HE IS CHARGE OF,
  • 17:48 IT CULMINATES IN HIM BRINGING >>ALL THE ARMIES IN THE WORLD TO >>DO THIS.
  • 17:54 BY THIS TIME, THOUGH, ISRAEL >>BECOMES CONVERTED, THE REMNANT,
  • 17:58 THE 1/3 REMNANT BECOMES CONVERTED TO JESUS, THE MESSIAH
  • 18:01 IN FACT THE SECOND COMING IS A >>RESCUE EVENT, ZOLA.
  • 18:05 HE PICKS THEM UP AT PETRA AND HE TO THE MT. OF OLIVES.
  • 18:10 THAT'S CORRECT.
  • 18:10 HE'S COMING TO PETRA WITH BLOOD >>ON HIS GARMENTS AND THEN HE >>COMES BACK TO THE MT. OF OLIVES.
  • 18:14 BUT, IT'S THE PROVOCATION BEHIND >>THE SECOND COMING,
  • 18:19 WAS IT, OH GOD SAYS I'M JUST PUTTING THIS ON MY CALENDAR.
  • 18:22 THIS IS THE DAY I'M GOING TO COME BACK?
  • 18:24 ALTHOUGH THAT IS TRUE, BUT IT >>SAYS THAT HE'S COMING TO RESCUE >>HIS PEOPLE
  • 18:29 BECAUSE THE JEWS HAVE TO CALL ON THE LORD TO RESCUE THEM.
  • 18:33 SO, WHAT WE'RE SEEING, WE'RE NOT >>IN THE TRIBULATION, WE'RE STILL IN THE CHURCH AGE
  • 18:38 AND WHAT WE'RE SEEING, THOUGH IS >>BECAUSE ISRAEL IS BACK IN THE LAND
  • 18:42 AND JUST AS THERE WAS A TIME OF >>STAGE-SETTING FOR CHRIST'S FIRST COMING,
  • 18:47 IT DIDN'T JUST HAPPEN ONE DAY, >>SO THERE'S A STAGE-SETTING
  • 18:51 FOR EVENTS LEADING UP TO HIS SECOND COMING.
  • 18:53 SO, ISRAEL'S BACK IN THE LAND AND THAT'S WHAT HEIGHTENS OUR EXPECTATION
  • 18:56 THAT GOD'S PREPARING THE FIELD, THEY USE THE TERM IN WAR TODAY,
  • 19:01 "PREPARING THE BATTLEFIELD" IF YOU WILL.
  • 19:03 WELL, HE'S PREPARING BY SETTING THE STAGE, REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE,
  • 19:07 GOG AND MAGOG, RUSSIA AND THE ARAB COALITION THAT ARE GOING TO COME.
  • 19:12 WE SEE THE APOSTASY IN THE CHURCH, SEE THE CHURCH WHICH RELATES TO THE CHURCH AGE
  • 19:17 AND WE SEE A DECLINE OF FAITH INCLUDING THE STATEMENT OF
  • 19:23 WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING,
  • 19:24 IS ONE OF THE APOSTATE STATEMENTS THAT YOU FIND IN THE CHURCH AGE.
  • 19:27 SO, YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE SAYING JESUS CAME BACK IN A.D. 70, >>JESUS ISN'T COMING BACK AGAIN,
  • 19:31 SOME OF THE FULL PRETERISTS, >>YOU'VE GOT LIBERALS WHO BELIEVE HE'S JUST NOT GOING TO COME BACK
  • 19:37 HE'S COMING BACK IN OUR HEARTS.
  • 19:38 EXACTLY, ALL THESE SPIRITUALIZED THINGS.
  • 19:41 YOU KNOW, I ALWAYS TEACH MY GROUPS,
  • 19:42 ESPECIALLY WHEN WE'RE STANDING IN THE UPPER ROOM IN JERUSALEM
  • 19:44 AND I SAY, IF THEY'RE TEACHING >>THAT HE'S NOT COMING BACK FOR THEM, I THINK THEY'RE RIGHT.
  • 19:50 IF THAT'S WHAT YOU TEACH, THAT'S WHAT YOU GET.
  • 19:55 SO, THE WHOLE FOCUS, JUST LIKE >>2000 YEARS AGO
  • 19:59 WHEN CHRIST CAME THE FIRST TIME >>IS IN ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM,
  • 20:04 THEN THE WHOLE FOCUS IS GOING TO >>BE IN THE FUTURE EVENTS ON ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM
  • 20:10 IN RELATIONSHIP THIS TIME TO THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.
  • 20:14 SO THIS IS WHY WE'RE SEEING, I THINK, THIS ANTI-SEMITISM,
  • 20:18 BUT, IT JUST BOTHERS ME THAT MANY EVANGELICAL INCREASINGLY
  • 20:22 ARE MOVING AWAY FROM SUPPORTFOR >>ISRAEL AND IT HASN'T GAINED TRACTION WITH THE MASSES YET,
  • 20:29 BUT, IF YOU LOOK AT THE ACADEMIC >>COMMUNITIES AND ALL OF THESE JUST 25 YEARS AGO,
  • 20:35 THESE SEMINARIES AND BIBLE COLLEGES THAT WERE STARTED BY BIBLE-BELIEVING,
  • 20:42 LITERAL INTERPRETING PEOPLE WHO >>BELIEVED IN PROPHECY,
  • 20:46 BELIEVED ISRAEL WAS SIGNIFICANT >>AND HAD A THING,
  • 20:48 NOW THEY'RE BEING REPLACED BY A >>WHOLE NEW GENERATION OF >>ACADEMICS WHO EITHER QUESTION,
  • 20:53 ONE WILL PUT IT IN THE CONTEXT >>WHILE OTHERS FIVE POSSIBLE >>INTERPRETATIONS OF THIS PASSAGE,
  • 20:59 YOU SEE WHAT I'M SAYING. >>YES.
  • 21:00 OR THEY'RE BECOMING HOSTILE TO THIS.
  • 21:03 THEY MAKE FUN IN SOME INSTANCES >>OF THE PEOPLE THAT PROCEEDED THEM,
  • 21:08 THE GREAT PROPHECY TEACHERS THAT >>PROCEEDED THEM AND VERY FEW SCHOOLS NOW ARE,
  • 21:15 EVEN IF SOME OF THEM MAY HOLD TO >>THESE VIEWS, THEY'RE NOT SPEAKING OUT ANY MORE.
  • 21:20 I THINK YOU KIND OF KNOW ABOUT THAT.
  • 21:21 YES, OUR MINISTRY GOES AFTER THIS KIND OF ERROR.
  • 21:25 WE'VE CRITICIZED THE SEMINARIES >>AND THEN PEOPLE WRITE TO US,
  • 21:29 HOW CAN YOU CRITICIZE MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE, DALLAS SEMINARY, ETC.
  • 21:32 WE KNOW WHERE OF WE SPEAK.
  • 21:33 OUR CHIEF THEOLOGIAN DR. TOM MCCALL, HE'S GOT A DOCTORATE FROM DALLAS,
  • 21:37 HE AND I WROTE BOOKS, BEST SELLERS FOR MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE.
  • 21:40 MOODY PRESS USED TO CHECK OUR BOOKS LINE FOR LINE WITH THEOLOGIANS
  • 21:46 TO MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT >>THESE NEW FANGLED IDEAS OF OURS,
  • 21:50 THE "COMING RUSSIAN INVASION OF >>ISRAEL" OR "THE ANTI-CHRIST, SATAN IN THE SANCTUARY",
  • 21:55 THESE ARE CONSIDERED HACKNEYED >>OLD BOOKS NOW,
  • 21:58 BUT THEY WERE SO REVOLUTIONARY >>RIGHT AFTER "LATE GREAT PLANET EARTH"
  • 22:02 THEY CHECKED LINE FOR LINE TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS TOTALLY BIBLICAL.
  • 22:06 THAT'D BE A LAUGH NOW.
  • 22:07 I DON'T KNOW IF THEY EVEN UNDERSTAND PROPHECY.
  • 22:10 IT WOULD BE REJECTED BY THEIR EDITORS BEFORE, THEY WOULDN'T PUBLISH IT.
  • 22:15 THEY DON'T PUBLISH IT, ANYMORE.
  • 22:16 I WENT TO THE MOODY BOOKSTORE, >>I'M SORRY TOMMY, ONE MORE THOUGHT.
  • 22:21 MY WIFE AND I WENT IN THE MOODY BOOKSTORE
  • 22:23 BECAUSE REV. ED HINDSON TOLD ME HE WENT THERE AND THERE WERE NO >>BOOKS ABOUT PROPHECY.
  • 22:27 WELL, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT, SO I WENT PERSONALLY AND I EXAMINED THE WHOLE BOOKSTORE.
  • 22:33 YOU KNOW WHAT, >>HE'S RIGHT. >>HE'S RIGHT.
  • 22:36 THERE WAS A FEW OF TIM LAHAYE'S >>"LEFT BEHIND"
  • 22:39 BUT NO TEACHING BOOKS ABOUT PROPHECY IN A SEMINARY BOOKSTORE.
  • 22:44 AND EVEN THINK, SOME OF THE FACULTY STILL HAS BOOKS FROM MOODY PRESS IN PRINT
  • 22:49 TEACHING ABOUT PROPHECY AT MOODY.
  • 22:50 MY BOOKS ARE, WELL, WE'VE TAKEN >>OVER COPYRIGHTS AND STILL >>RELEASE THEM AND PEOPLE AT MOODY
  • 22:58 I GUESS WOULDN'T EVEN UNDERSTAND >>THEM NOW AND THEY USED TO CHECK THEM OUT.
  • 23:01 SO, WHAT WE'RE SEEING IS, I THINK,
  • 23:05 EVEN THOUGH A MAJORITY OF AMERICAN EVANGELICALS ARE PRO-ISRAEL,
  • 23:08 WE'RE SEEING THAT THE BASIS >>THAT'S BUILT AND SUPPORTED THAT >>IS ERODING, YOU SEE
  • 23:15 AND THAT MEANS IN THE FUTURE >>PROBABLY THERE'S GOING TO BE A >>DECLINE IN SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL
  • 23:23 UNLESS PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND OTHERS LIKE YOU
  • 23:24 HAVE A GREATER VOICE AND IMPACT >>ON THE 20 SOMETHINGS AND 30 SOMETHINGS.
  • 23:30 I'M DOING WHAT I CAN, I REALLY AM,
  • 23:32 BUT, THE LAST TIME I SPOKE AT DALLAS SEMINARY,
  • 23:34 I'M ON THEIR SHORT LIST OF APPROVED CHAPEL SPEAKERS,
  • 23:37 BUT, I HAVEN'T HAD VERY MANY INVITATIONS LATELY.
  • 23:39 BUT, I DID BACK, IT HAD TO BE ALMOST 10 YEARS AGO THAT I SPOKE THERE
  • 23:43 BUT, I ASKED MOSHE ROSEN, THE FOUNDER OF JEWS FOR JESUS,
  • 23:47 WHAT SHOULD I TELL THE PEOPLE AT >>DALLAS SEMINARY?
  • 23:49 HE SAID START OUT BY SAYING, I COME TO YOU LIKE A MARRIAGE COUNSELOR
  • 23:54 TO TELL YOU NOT TO FORGET YOUR FIRST LOVE.
  • 23:57 VERY GOOD.
  • 23:57 I DID IT, BUT I HAD SKEPTICAL KIDS LOOKING AT ME FROM THE AUDIENCE,
  • 24:02 FACULTY MEMBERS LOOKING AROUND, >>BUT YOU KNOW A FEW THINGS HAPPENED,
  • 24:06 WHEN I WAS DONE WALKING OFF THE PODIUM, A FACULTY MEMBER WALKING PAST ME
  • 24:10 KIND OF JUST UNDER OUR COATS SQUEEZED MY HAND LIKE TO SAY, "SELL IT BROTHER".
  • 24:15 HE WOULDN'T WANT TO BE CAUGHT BY >>THE REST OF THE FACULTY, YOU KNOW.
  • 24:18 WE USED TO CALL THAT THE SANHEDRIN WHEN WE I WAS A STUDENT.
  • 24:21 THEY SAT UP THERE ON THE STAGE >>LIKE GOD KNOWS--
  • 24:25 IN CASE SOME HERESY DRIPPED OUT >>FROM THEM.
  • 24:29 CHECKING OUT EVERYTHING I SAID.
  • 24:30 BUT, IT PAST MUSTARD, AT LEAST THEY LET ME FINISH AND THE GUY >>SQUEEZED MY HAND,
  • 24:35 I'LL NEVER FORGET IT AS IF TO >>SAY "PREACH IT BROTHER", BUT I'M DOING THIS IN PRIVATE DOWN HERE.
  • 24:40 ZOLA, IT'S MIND BOGGLING TO ME >>WHEN YOU READ THE SCRIPTURES
  • 24:44 AND ISRAEL IS ON EVERY PAGE IN >>THE SCRIPTURES AND THEY SAY
  • 24:48 ISRAEL DOESN'T MEAN ISRAEL, >>THE CHURCH TOOK OVER FOR ISRAEL.
  • 24:50 THIS BOOK WRITTEN AND PUBLISHED >>IN JERUSALEM BY JEWS.
  • 24:54 EXACTLY--
  • 24:55 TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH FOR USE OVER HERE.
  • 24:58 BECAUSE WE'RE SO, THE EVANGELICALS ARE PRO-ISRAEL,
  • 25:01 THEN WE'RE NEGLECTING THE >>PALESTINIAN CHRISTIANS, YOU KNOW >>AND THESE KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 25:07 ANSWER THAT ONE IF DON'T MIND.
  • 25:08 I GET IT EVERY TIME I SPEAK IN CHURCHES.
  • 25:09 HOW MANY PALESTINIAN BORN-AGAIN >>BELIEVERS ARE THERE?
  • 25:12 YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY >>ARE OVER THERE,
  • 25:13 BUT THERE'S A LOT LESS NOW BECAUSE OF ISLAM, NOT BECAUSE OF ISRAEL.
  • 25:18 CHASING THEM OUT.
  • 25:19 IN FACT, I GOT A SCHOLARLY ARTICLE FOR MY BOOK THAT I'M USING
  • 25:22 SHOWING THAT THERE IS A SIMILAR >>DECLINE OF BOTH PALESTINIAN CHRISTIANS,
  • 25:29 WHETHER THEY'RE EVANGELICAL OR NOT IN JORDAN WHEN THE MUSLIMS TOOK OVER JORDAN,
  • 25:36 WHEN SYRIA WENT INTO TO JORDAN.
  • 25:37 LOOK WHAT'S HAPPENING IN IRAQ, >>THEY'RE PERSECUTING THE CHRISTIANS.
  • 25:42 THEY'RE CHASING THEM OUT.
  • 25:42 SO, IT'S NOT THE JEWS, >>BECAUSE BEFORE ISRAEL, WHAT WAS >>THAT PEACE TREATY, OSLO.
  • 25:52 IN THE EARLY 90S THERE WAS NOT A >>PROBLEM OF CHRISTIANS
  • 25:58 OR PALESTINIAN CHRISTIANS AS THEY'RE CALLED,
  • 26:00 ALTHOUGH WE KNOW THE ANCIENT PALESTINIANS WERE INVENTED IN 1964 BY YASSER ARAFAT,
  • 26:05 BUT THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE EXPERIENCED DECLINES,
  • 26:11 THEY WERE VERY STEADY PEOPLE, >>WERE NOT IMMIGRATING OR LEAVING >>THE STATE OF ISRAEL
  • 26:16 UNTIL THE MUSLIMS CAME IN AND TOOK OVER.
  • 26:18 HAVE TO LEAVE IT AT THAT, TOMMY, >>THAT'S VERY GOOD.
  • 26:21 I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO--
  • 26:23 I WISH YOU COULD STAY ALL DAY AND ITS FUN TO TALK TO YOU
  • 26:27 AND YOU'RE SO RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING.
  • 26:28 THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY.
  • 26:30 I REALLY APPRECIATE IT.
  • 26:31 THANKS FOR HAVING ME.
  • 26:31 I CONSIDER IT AN HONOR TO BE ON >>YOUR PROGRAM.
  • 26:34 OK. HE'S TOMMY ICE.
  • 26:35 HE'S GOT BOOKS IN THE BOOKSTORE.
  • 26:36 HE'S A GOOD MAN TO HEAR AS YOU >>HAVE JUST EXPERIENCED.
  • 26:40 AND SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALYIM PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
