Caption transcript for Israel, My Love: Part 1 (1/6)

  • 00:07 HE'S GOING TO PREACH CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:10 FAMINE, PESTILENCE, EARTHQUAKES, WARS, THE SECOND RESURRECTIONS OF UNBELIEVERS.
  • 00:16 WELL, I THINK WHEN GOD CHOOSES A PEOPLE, THE DEVIL CHOOSES..
  • 00:19 THE BELIEVERS WILL BE A VAST..
  • 00:20 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:23 ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES IS PROUD TO PRESENT A SERIES
  • 00:26 HIGHLIGHTING OVER ONE QUARTER CENTURY OF TELEVISION PROGRAMS.
  • 00:31 ISRAEL MY LOVE: 27 YEARS WITH ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 00:39 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN. I'M SANDRA LEVITT.
  • 00:43 I'M HERE WITH JEFFREY SEIF AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT 27 YEARS OF ZOLA'S MINISTRY.
  • 00:48 WE'RE DOING 6 PROGRAMS, LOOKING BACK AT THE IMPACT THAT ZOLA HAD
  • 00:53 ON BOTH GENTILES AND JEWISH BELIEVERS.
  • 00:56 JEFF, I DON'T KNOW IF WE'LL EVER KNOW THE ENTIRE IMPACT THAT ZOLA HAD.
  • 00:59 WHAT A PROFOUND IMPACT HE HAD.
  • 01:02 HE MINISTERED IN A WORLD WHEN MORE JEWISH PEOPLE HAD COME TO FAITH
  • 01:06 IN THE LAST 20 YEARS THAN PREVIOUS 2 MILLENNIA.
  • 01:10 IT'S INCREDIBLE.
  • 01:12 AND OF ALL THOSE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF JEWISH PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME TO EXCEPT JESUS,
  • 01:16 NONE WERE ELEVATED TO HAVE SUCH A NATIONAL MINISTRY, SUCH SCOPE AS ZOLA.
  • 01:21 ONE OF THE FIRST PROGRAMS ZOLA DID BACK IN 1983 WAS APTLY TITLED, "YESHUA".
  • 01:32 THAT'S THE RAM'S HORN, THE TRUMPET OF THE BIBLE.
  • 01:35 IT SOUNDED WHEN JOSHUA CAME HERE TO ISRAEL AND IT SOUNDED WHEN JESUS CAME HERE TO ISRAEL.
  • 01:40 JESUS WALKED THESE VERY STREETS OF JERUSALEM.
  • 01:43 THEY CALLED HIM YESHUA AND HE CHANGED THE HEARTS OF MEN.
  • 01:48 HE PROMISED TO RETURN AND THAT IS WHY WE CELEBRATE.
  • 01:53 ♪YESHUA RETURN UNTO OUR ♪FATHERS, YESHUA, ♪RETURN TO US ALONE.
  • 02:00 ♪YESHUA, RETURN UNTO ISRAEL, ♪YESHUA, RETURN UNTO YOUR OWN,
  • 02:08 ♪YESHUA, RETURN UNTO ISRAEL, ♪YESHUA, RETURN UNTO YOUR OWN.
  • 02:25 ♪YESHUA.
  • 02:29 BECAUSE IT SAYS IN THE NEXT VERSE IN 21,
  • 02:31 FOR ALL THE ATHENIANS AND STRANGERS, WHICH WERE THERE
  • 02:34 SPENT THERE TIME IN NOTHING ELSE BUT EITHER TO TELL OR TO HEAR SOME NEW THING.
  • 02:40 WORLDLY WISDOM, INTELLECTUALISM, IT'S A GOOD THING
  • 02:43 IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT WAYS TO IMPROVE THE ECONOMY
  • 02:48 OR WAYS TO MAKE STEEL OR WAYS TO OPERATE MARKET PLACES,
  • 02:53 BUT NOT AT ALL A GOOD THING IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR GOD, BECAUSE THAT'S WORK FOR THE HEART.
  • 02:59 AS WE TALK ABOUT GENTILE SALVATION, JAIL CELLS ARE PART OF IT,
  • 03:04 BECAUSE WHEN THE APOSTLES WENT OUT IN THE EMPIRE,
  • 03:07 THEY SAW A BUNCH OF THEM,
  • 03:08 THEY EVEN BROUGHT A JAILER TO CHRIST.
  • 03:10 THIS JAIL CELL IS RIGHT AGAINST THE ROCKS, RIGHT AT THE SEA
  • 03:14 FOR THE CONVENIENCE OF TAKING PEOPLE RIGHT OUT OF THE BOAT
  • 03:17 WHO HAVEN'T GOT THE RIGHT PAPERS OR THE RIGHT RELIGION
  • 03:20 AND INCARCERATING THEM IMMEDIATELY.
  • 03:22 HOW DID THEY MOVE THE STONES TO MAKE THE WALL?
  • 03:25 WELL THE LIFTING UP, OF COURSE, THAT IS VERY DIFFICULT,
  • 03:28 THEY ONLY CAN REPLACE THEM BY ROLLING THEM OVER ROLLERS AND THEN UP AROUND, ROLLING OFF
  • 03:35 SO THAT YOU CAN CONTINUE WALKING ON THE WATER.
  • 03:37 BY ROLLING THEM THEY WOULD MOVE THEM.
  • 03:39 HERE FOR EXAMPLE, THE HEIGHT OF THE STONE IS HERE THE GREAT CAUSE,
  • 03:44 WHICH MEANS THE STONES SPECIALLY CARVED IT'S WHERE YOU LOOK FOR THE DOOR ITSELF, THE ENTRANCE,
  • 03:50 WHICH YOU CAN POINT OUT THIS LEVEL.
  • 03:54 ♪DO NOT EVER URGE ME TO GO, ♪OR DESERT YOUR SIDE ♪AND LEAVE YOU
  • 04:07 ♪OR MAY GOD TO ME AND MORE ♪IF ANYTHING.
  • 04:16 PROCLAIMING THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS, THE MESSIAH, YESHUA, HAMASHIACH,
  • 04:19 HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CENTRAL THEME OF ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES.
  • 04:23 IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE CENTRAL FOCUS FOR US.
  • 04:26 JEFF, I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
  • 04:28 GLAD TO BE HERE, AS WELL.
  • 04:29 WHEN ZOLA WAS HERE, HE, MORE THAN ANYONE HELPED US IN THE WORLD
  • 04:33 SEE THE JEWISHNESS OF JESUS, YESHUA, FOCUSING ON HIS FIRST COMING.
  • 04:37 THEN I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS WITH ZOLA, HE WAS TAKING US TO THE SECOND COMING
  • 04:41 AND WE'RE GOING NOW LOOK AS SOME OF ZOLA'S SERIES, SOME TEXT ON THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS,
  • 04:47 BIBLE PROPHECY AND ISRAEL'S PLACE IN THE UNFOLDING DRAMA.
  • 05:37 A GENERATION IN THAT SENSE IS NOT A 40 YEAR, 35 YEAR, 30 YEAR PERIOD,
  • 05:42 BUT A KIND OF PEOPLE AND WHAT THE LORD WAS ASSURING THEM WAS THIS KIND OF PEOPLE,
  • 05:47 THE ISRAELITE PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO PASS AWAY UNTIL ALL THE SIGNS BE FULFILLED.
  • 05:52 A NECESSARY THING TO SAY AS WE NOW SEE MODERN ISRAEL,
  • 05:55 BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO SOME, TO SOME ISRAELIS IN FACT,
  • 05:58 THIS NATION CAN'T LAST THROUGH WHAT'S GOING ON.
  • 06:01 NOW OUR LOCATION IS ON MT. MORIAH, THE CENTER OF THE EARTH, THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 06:06 AND BEHIND ME IS THE DOME OF THE ROCK, ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BUILDINGS IN THE WORLD,
  • 06:11 THE MUSLIM DOME, WHICH WAS ERECTED 691 A.D. AND IS STILL IN USE EVERYDAY.
  • 06:16 IMAGINE A 1300 YEAR OLD BUILDING STILL USED FOR PRAYER AND WORSHIP IN THE ISLAM FAITH.
  • 06:22 THIS IS THE SITE, HOWEVER, OF A LOT OF ACTION IN THE FUTURE
  • 06:27 AND ULTIMATELY IN THE KINGDOM TO COME, A BRAND NEW TEMPLE.
  • 06:31 GO THEREFORE AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS,
  • 06:36 BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 06:41 TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THAT I COMMANDED YOU AND LO,
  • 06:46 I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN TO THE END OF THE AGE.
  • 07:12 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 07:14 ARE WE LIVING AT THE END OF THE AGE?
  • 07:15 THAT'S THE QUESTION BEING ASKED ALL OVER IN THE WORLD
  • 07:19 LIKE WE HAVE TODAY AND WE'RE STARTING AN ONGOING SERIES TO TRY TO ANSWER IT.
  • 07:23 WHY HAS ISRAEL HAD NOTHING BUT WAR SINCE SHE'S BEEN RESETTLED?
  • 07:27 WELL, I THINK WHEN GOD CHOOSES A PEOPLE, THE DEVIL CHOOSES THEM, TOO.
  • 07:30 IT'S ALL GOING TO BE WRAPPED UP RIGHT HERE WHERE ARE IN THAT BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 07:36 AND THEN THE LORD WILL RETURN TO PUT A STOP TO ALL THESE WARS
  • 07:40 AND THAT REALLY WILL BE THE WAR TO END ALL WARS.
  • 08:22 THE DAY OF THE LORD SO COMETH AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT, FOR WHEN THEY SHALL SAY PEACE AND SAFETY,
  • 08:30 THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION COMETH UPON THEM AND THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE.
  • 08:35 ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS, "SIGNS OF THE END".
  • 08:53 I WAS IN ISRAEL WITH OUR TOUR SEPTEMBER 11
  • 08:56 WHEN THE TERRORISM HIT IN NEW YORK AND WASHINGTON AND NEAR PITTSBURGH, PA. WHERE I GREW UP.
  • 09:03 IT WAS UNIMAGINABLE TO ME AND I'M NOT SAYING I KNOW ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THIS
  • 09:10 THEN ALL THE OTHER TV COMMENTATORS OR THAN YOU YOURSELF,
  • 09:14 BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD TALK TO OUR AUDIENCE ABOUT JUST WHAT WE WERE FEELING ON THE TOUR.
  • 09:20 WE'RE LIVING IN MOMENTOUS DAYS,
  • 09:22 BUT IF WE HAVE THE WILL TO DIG A LITTLE BIT,
  • 09:25 WE DISCOVER SOME OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE THINGS IN THE BIBLE.
  • 09:29 THE BIBLE CONTINUES TO BE A STEP AHEAD AND MORE THAN EVER,
  • 09:33 WE NEED TO BUILD OUR LIVES UPON IT BECAUSE WE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS COMING,
  • 09:38 FOR GOD HAS WARNED US.
  • 09:40 THE IDEA THAT THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL RIDE UP AND MAKE A PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL
  • 09:44 TO START THE TRIBULATION IS EMULATED BY THE IDEA
  • 09:48 THAT WE'RE ALL THE TIME TRYING TO MAKE PEACE TREATIES.
  • 09:52 THIS DIDN'T START UNTIL THE EARLY 90'S BUT ONCE IT STARTED,
  • 09:55 I THOUGHT IN EARNEST, WE ARE HEADING TOWARD THE ANTI-CHRIST'S ULTIMATE DEBUT.
  • 10:00 WE SHOULD KNOW THE THINGS IN SCRIPTURE ARE FOR OUR ADMONITION AND OUR WARNING.
  • 10:06 WHEN WE RETURN, WE WILL DIG INTO THE CAVES NEAR THE DEAD SEA
  • 10:11 IN ORDER TO REVEAL THE SECRETS OF THE SCROLLS.
  • 10:16 WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK IN A MOMENT.

  • 10:48 PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
  • 10:51 ♪FOLLOW ME TO GALILEE
  • 10:53 AND JESUS SAID UNTO THEM, DO NOT BE AFRAID, GO TELL MY BRETHREN TO GO INTO GALILEE,
  • 10:59 THERE THEY WILL SEE.
  • 11:03 IT STRENGTHENS OUR FAITH TO KNOW THAT JESUS WALKED ON THE WATER AND THAT WE CAN CALL OUT TO HIM.
  • 11:09 IT MAKES THE WHOLE SCRIPTURES COME TO LIFE.
  • 11:22 THAT'S ISRAEL, THAT'S THE WAY WE SEE AND THAT'S THE WAY WE LOVE IT.
  • 11:25 IT'S THE MIRACLE LAND OF THE BIBLE.
  • 11:29 I THINK, PERSONALLY, ISRAEL'S RESURRECTION IS A GREAT MIRACLE.
  • 11:35 NOT ONLY DID THE NATION STATE RISE UP,
  • 11:37 THERE'S INTERESTING MANUSCRIPTS THAT HAVE SEEMED TO COME UP FROM THE EARTH, AS WELL
  • 11:40 THAT WERE FOUND RECENTLY.
  • 11:42 WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT ONE.
  • 11:43 ZOLA DID A SPECIAL ON THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS IN 1991.
  • 12:46 THIS IS THE JUDEAN WILDERNESS AND IT IS HERE THAT A FEW YEARS EARLIER IN 1947
  • 12:51 A BEDOUIN BOY THREW A STONE THROUGH THE OPENING OF A CAVE
  • 12:55 AND HEARING THE SOUND OF BREAKING POTTERY, ENTERED THE CAVE,
  • 12:59 WITNESSING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2000 YEARS, THE HIDDEN TREASURE OF THIS QUMRAN COMMUNITY.
  • 13:06 HE HAD DISCOVERED THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
  • 13:10 45 YEARS LATER, ARCHEOLOGIST AND LANGUAGE EXPERTS ARE STILL LOOKING,
  • 13:14 STILL TRYING TO PIECE TOGETHER AN AMAZING PUZZLE
  • 13:17 OF INTERNATIONAL PROPORTIONS.
  • 13:22 THESE PEOPLE WERE JEWS.
  • 13:24 THEY ROSE TO PRAY BEFORE DAWN AND THEY HELD TO THE SABBATH RIGOROUSLY.
  • 13:28 THEY HAD A COMMUNITY COUNCIL OF 12 WITH AN INNER-GROUP OF 3.
  • 13:32 JESUS OF COURSE, HAD 12 DISCIPLES AND THAT INNER-GROUP OF 3 IN PETER, JAMES AND JOHN.
  • 13:38 THE QUMRAN GROUP HAD SACRED MEALS WITH PRAYERS, MUCH LIKE THE LAST SUPPER OR COMMUNION.
  • 13:44 THEY TALKED ABOUT THE "RUACH HAKODESH" THE HOLY SPIRIT AND ABOUT THE LAST DAYS.
  • 13:51 THE FOURTH LINE HERE IS THE ONE THAT'S REALLY INTERESTING THAT SAYS,
  • 13:55 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 14:03 NOW WE KNOW FROM OTHER DEAD SEA SCROLLS
  • 14:06 THAT THE WORDS NESI HA'AIDAH, PRINCE OF THE CONGREGATION
  • 14:08 REFERS TO A MESSIANIC SON OF DAVID FIGURE.
  • 14:12 THEY ARE SPEAKING OF A MESSIANIC FIGURE HERE, WHO'S EVIDENTLY BEING PUT TO DEATH.
  • 14:15 FROM THE DESERT JUST OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM,
  • 14:20 COMES ONE OF THE GREATEST STORIES OF THE MODERN WORLD, THE STORY OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
  • 14:26 SANDRA, FOR 17 YEARS I'VE BEEN A COLLEGE PROFESSOR AND I'VE TAUGHT ON THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
  • 14:31 PERSONALLY, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN AMAZED AT HOW THOSE ANCIENTS
  • 14:36 WERE INTERESTED IN INTERPRETING THE OLD TESTAMENT AND GIVING REFERENCE TO THE COMING MESSIAH.
  • 14:40 YOU KNOW, JEFF, WHEN THEY FOUND THOSE SCROLLS AND THEY INTERPRETED THEM,
  • 14:43 NOT ONE LETTER WAS MISTAKEN.
  • 14:45 IT CARRIED ON ALL THOSE MANY, MANY THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
  • 14:49 YOU KNOW, ZOLA CAME TO BELIEF IN THE 70'S AS A MUSICIAN
  • 14:52 AND ALMOST EVERYONE OF THE PROGRAMS HAS SOME MUSICAL IN HIM THAT HE WROTE HIMSELF.
  • 14:58 THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT I THINK REALLY MADE THE PROGRAM SPECIAL.
  • 15:01 ONE OF THOSE PROGRAMS IS "TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAINS" 1993, LOVELY PROGRAM.
  • 15:30 ♪TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN, ♪TELL THE STORY OF THE LORD,
  • 15:35 ♪STAND BEFORE THE PEOPLE ♪AND EXALT HIM.
  • 15:40 ♪PRAISE HIM IN THE VALLEY, ♪SING HIS PRAISES BY THE SEA,
  • 15:45 ♪TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAINS ♪SO THAT ALL MIGHT KNOW.
  • 16:03 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 16:05 WELL, WELCOME BACK TO "TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAINS".
  • 16:07 TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO THE MOST FAMOUS MAYBE OF ALL OF THE MOUNTAINS,
  • 16:10 THE ONE OF A KIND, MT. SINAI WHERE GOD MET MOSES.
  • 16:15 THE LAW WAS FULFILLED IN JESUS CHRIST.
  • 16:18 HE KEPT ALL THESE LAWS.
  • 16:19 HE LIVED PERFECTLY UNDER THEM AND IF I GO TO HIM
  • 16:23 THEN I GO TO HEAVEN IN THE ROBES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST.
  • 16:26 FORTUNATELY, I COULD NOT KEEP THIS LAW BY MYSELF.
  • 16:30 I HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE 10 COMMANDMENTS AND SO DO WE ALL.
  • 16:33 IN CHRIST, I'M PERFECT, THAT IS, AS GOD LOOKS AT ME IN MY SPIRITUAL POSITION,
  • 16:40 HE SAYS "THERE GOES MY SON, I RECOGNIZE THOSE ROBES."
  • 16:43 THE FLOOR OF THIS SITE, PIXNER SUGGESTS OFFERS THE FIRST CLUES.
  • 16:49 RECENT EXCAVATIONS REVEAL FOR US FROM OTHER PERIODS
  • 16:52 INCLUDING CRUSADER, BYZANTINE AND ROMAN PERIODS.
  • 16:56 SURPRISINGLY, JUDEO-CHRISTIAN GRAFFITI WAS FOUND ON THE EARLIEST FLOOR.
  • 17:01 THE GRAFFITI WAS TRANSLATED BY A TEAM OF EXPERT BIBLE SCHOLARS WHO FOUND PHRASES THAT INCLUDED,
  • 17:13 FATHER PIXNER WENT ON TO EXPLAIN FURTHER
  • 17:16 WHY HE BELIEVES THIS TOMB SITE WAS ACTUALLY CHURCH OF THE APOSTLES.
  • 17:19 PROPHECY FALLS IN THREE PARTS,
  • 17:28 SO, THESE ARE THE THINGS WE SHOULD KNOW.
  • 17:30 FIRST IN IMPORTANCE, I SUPPOSE, IS THE LAND BECAUSE THAT IS AN EASY ONE TO SEE.
  • 17:34 ISRAEL IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN TODAY'S BIBLE STUDY IN CHRISTENDOM.
  • 17:40 THIS IS THE PLACE WE ARE GOING FOR A THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM UNDER THE KING OF THE JEWS
  • 17:45 WHO WILL SIT ON THE THRONE OF DAVID.
  • 17:47 IF WE MAKE A CHURCH SOMEWHERE ELSE IN THE WESTERN WORLD AND WE BOAST AGAINST THE BRANCHES
  • 17:52 AND ISRAEL IS NO LONGER OF IMPORTANCE TO US,
  • 17:55 WE ARE THE ENTIRE FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S WAY, THE CHURCH HAS BECOME ISRAEL, THIS SORT OF PHILOSOPHY,
  • 18:01 WE JUST GO FURTHER AND FURTHER FROM SCRIPTURE AND ULTIMATELY THAT WAY LIES MADNESS.
  • 18:06 WE JUST LOSE TRACK OF WHAT WE'RE DOING.
  • 18:08 YOU KNOW, ZOLA WENT TO ISRAEL ALMOST 80 TIMES.
  • 18:11 WE'VE HAD SOME WONDERFUL, INTERESTING PEOPLE THAT WE'VE INTERVIEWED.
  • 18:14 HERE ARE SOME OF THOSE INTERVIEWS.
  • 18:16 I HAVE WRITTEN ON THE SUBJECT OF CHINA.
  • 18:20 THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE MANY INDICATIONS
  • 18:23 THAT THE KINGS OF THE EAST AS IT SAYS IN REVELATION 16
  • 18:27 WOULD MARCH ACROSS THE DRIED UP EUPHRATES RIVER IN PREPARATION FOR THE GREAT ARMAGEDDON BATTLE
  • 18:33 THAT OCCURS JUST PRIOR TO THE COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 18:37 WELL, I FIND THAT IT'S RATHER INTERESTING WITH MANY OTHER SIGNS OF OUR TIMES
  • 18:41 THAT LOOK LIKE WE COULD ANTICIPATE THAT EVENT.
  • 18:44 IT'S ALSO AT THIS PERIOD OF TIME THAT CHINA IS REACHING OUT TO BECOME A MAJOR WORLD PLAYER
  • 18:51 ON THE STAGE OF THE HISTORY AND FOR 5000 YEARS CHINA HAS NOT BEEN A THREAT TO ANYONE,
  • 18:58 BUT TODAY, IN OUR LIFETIME, WE'RE SEEING THE CAPACITY
  • 19:01 AND THE FACT THAT THEY COULD SEND A HUGE ARMY ACROSS THE DRIED-UP EUPHRATES RIVER
  • 19:06 AGAINST CHRIST IN THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 19:09 BEING BORN IN AN AGRICULTURAL, COOPERATIVE VILLAGE IN 1928,
  • 19:14 SHARON HAS ALWAYS FELT DEEPLY ROOTED IN THE LAND.
  • 19:17 MYSELF, MY STRENGTH NEVER CAME FROM ANY POLITICAL APPARATUS.
  • 19:23 IT CAME FROM MY HOME, MY FAMILY,
  • 19:27 FROM THIS BEAUTIFUL LAND AND TERRAIN, THIS ROLLING TERRAIN
  • 19:33 AND THE ANIMALS AND THE TREES AND THE FLOWERS
  • 19:37 AND MY ROOTS ARE NOT IN A POLITICAL PARTY.
  • 19:43 THEY'RE IN THE LAND, ALWAYS WERE AND THEY ARE NOW.
  • 19:47 WHY DO YOU CALL IT THE WEST BANK?
  • 19:49 IT WAS ONLY CALLED THE WEST BANK FOR 19 YEARS AND THOSE 19 YEARS WERE OF A JORDANIAN OCCUPATION.
  • 19:57 THE ARAB LEGION, THE JORDANIAN ARMY STORMED ACROSS THE JORDAN RIVER IN 1948
  • 20:03 AND IT WAS ONLY HERE FOR 19 YEARS.
  • 20:05 IT'S NOW BEEN UNDER ISRAELI ADMINISTRATION FOR 25 YEARS
  • 20:09 AND THE JORDAN OCCUPATION OF THE LAND WAS ILLEGAL.
  • 20:13 WHY DOES EVERYBODY KEEP CALLING IT THE WEST BANK?
  • 20:15 MUCH HAS HAPPENED IN THE 27 YEARS DURING WHICH TIME ZOLA BROADCAST.
  • 20:21 AT FIRST, HE WAS MINDED TO TELL THE STORY OF THE TERRIFIC
  • 20:25 AND THEN HE TOLD THE STORY OF THE TERRIFYING
  • 20:28 AS TERRORISM MADE ITS ENTRANCE ONTO THE STAGE OF HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
  • 20:33 NOW WE'LL LOOK AT ZOLA LEVITT IN THE "AGE OF TERROR".
  • 21:04 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 21:06 WELCOME TO OUR NEW SERIES, "AGE OF TERROR".
  • 21:09 I'M SORRY WE HAVE TO MAKE A SERIES CALLED THAT, BUT, WE REALLY DO.
  • 21:13 AND OUR EXPERT, OUR GUEST IS WALID SHOEBAT WHO YOU'VE HEARD ON THIS PROGRAM BEFORE.
  • 21:19 HE'S A BEAUTIFUL, BORN AGAIN, FORMER TERRORIST, MUSLIM
  • 21:26 WHO HAS COME TO CHRIST AND HE'S TOLD HIS STORY ON OUR PROGRAM BEFORE
  • 21:30 AND WE ASKED HIM BACK TO TALK ABOUT THIS FASCINATING SUBJECT.
  • 21:34 WHAT A SITUATION.
  • 21:35 IT REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE THE END TIMES COMING, DOESN'T IT?
  • 21:38 YES, IN FACT, IT'S VERY CLEAR, EVEN PARALLELS IT WITH REVELATION
  • 21:42 THAT BEING CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE
  • 21:44 AND MOST CHRISTIANS READ THIS TEXT
  • 21:47 AND THEY LOOK AT VERSE 23 OF EZEKIEL 32,
  • 21:54 IN FACT IF YOU JUST SEARCH FOR THE WORD, "THE PIT"
  • 22:00 THIS IS THE COUNTRY OF IRAN RIGHT HERE AND MAYBE GOING ALL THE WAY,
  • 22:04 SORRY, RIGHT HERE GOING ALL THE WAY TO AFGHANISTAN.
  • 22:06 ALL THAT WILL BE PERSIA, ELAM IS PERSIA,
  • 22:10 DEEP INTO THE RECESS OF THE PIT
  • 22:15 WHICH IS TURKEY WITHIN THAT REGION RIGHT HERE, DEEP INTO THE RECESS OF THE PIT.
  • 22:20 ALL THESE NATIONS AND ARMIES.
  • 22:22 IN FACT, IT SAYS IT VERY CLEARLY IN VERSE 27,
  • 22:31 EDOM INCLUDES ALL THE ARAB WORLD IN "DOWN TO THE PIT".
  • 22:34 THIS PARALLELS EXACTLY WHAT REVELATION 19 IS SPEAKING OF.
  • 22:38 IN PRESENT DAY, THE PALESTINIANS, SO-CALLED,
  • 22:42 THE ARABS ARE DIGGING AROUND UNDER THE PLATFORM OF THE OLD TEMPLE
  • 22:47 AND TAKING OUT EVIDENCES OF THE JEWISH TEMPLE THAT ARE THERE UNDERGROUND
  • 22:52 AND IT'S AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL CRIME THAT GOES ON AND ON
  • 22:55 BECAUSE THIS GOVERNMENT IS BUSY WITH MORE IMPORTANT THINGS, KEEPING PEOPLE ALIVE,
  • 23:01 BUT THE PALESTINIANS ARE, IN THEIR VIEW,
  • 23:05 IF THEY DEFACE A STATUE AND TAKE THE FACE AWAY,
  • 23:08 THE PERSON SORT OF IS ERASED FROM HISTORY.
  • 23:10 WELL, IF THEY TAKE THE ARTIFACTS OUT OF THE MOUNT,
  • 23:13 THEN MAYBE PEOPLE WILL FORGET ABOUT THE JEWISH TEMPLE AND SO ON.
  • 23:16 IN SEVERAL CASES IN HISTORY THE TEMPLE HAS BEEN UTTERLY REPLACED.
  • 23:22 WE HAVE WHAT WE CALL IN THE UNITED STATES, REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY
  • 23:27 WHERE YOU REPLACE THE IDEALS OF A PEOPLE.
  • 23:30 THE LIBERAL CHURCHES BELIEVE THEY HAVE REPLACED ISRAEL AS THE NEW CHOSEN PEOPLE.
  • 23:37 SOME CHURCHES TEACH THIS GOBBLEDY-GOOK.
  • 23:41 THE MUSLIMS, ISLAM WAS ORIGINALLY,
  • 23:44 AND STILL TRIES TO REPLACE BOTH JUDAISM AND CHRISTIANITY.
  • 23:49 BUT, LITERALLY REPLACING THE BUILDING,
  • 23:52 THAT WAS DONE BY HADRIAN THE ROMAN EMPEROR IN 135 A.D.
  • 23:57 WHEN HE BUILT THE TEMPLE OF JUPITER RIGHT ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • 24:01 A ROMAN TEMPLE SO THAT WOULD KEEP THE JEWS OFF THE MOUNT AND SO FORTH.
  • 24:05 THE PHOENICIANS WENT TO TUNIS AND ESTABLISHED WHAT BECAME CARTHAGE
  • 24:11 FROM WHERE HANNIBAL CAME.
  • 24:13 THEY DID MALTA, THEY CAME DOWN THE COASTLINE ON THIS SIDE OF THE MEDITERRANEAN,
  • 24:19 DOWN THROUGH LEBANON AND AS FAR SOUTH AS WHERE WE ARE ABOUT CAESAREA ON THE ISRAELI COAST.
  • 24:25 IT WAS AFTER THE EXODUS, WHICH ITSELF WAS A KIND OF ASSAULT ON THE HOLY LAND,
  • 24:29 BUT THIS WAS A GODLY ASSAULT, GOD COMMANDED THE HEBREWS TO TAKE THIS LAND AND SO THEY DID.
  • 24:35 AS THEY WERE DOING IT PRACTICALLY, BETWEEN THE EXODUS AND KING DAVID'S TIME,
  • 24:41 THESE PHOENICIANS AND ALSO MACEDONIAN PEOPLE KNOWN AS PHILISTINES
  • 24:46 ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES ALONG THE COASTS.
  • 24:49 LIFE GOES ON.
  • 24:51 ZOLA HAS GONE ON TO HIS REWARD.
  • 24:54 THERE IS MUCH TO DO HERE ON EARTH AND I KNOW THAT HE'S CHEERING US FROM THE BALCONY.
  • 24:58 WHAT DO YOU THINK SANDRA?
  • 25:00 YOU KNOW, JEFF, I'VE HAD PEOPLE COME UP TO ME AND THANK US AND SAY,
  • 25:04 "THANK YOU JEFF, THANK YOU SANDRA FOR GOING ON
  • 25:07 AND CONTINUING THE MINISTRY THAT ZOLA STARTED."
  • 25:09 I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONTINUE WATCHING THE RETROSPECTIVE
  • 25:13 OF ZOLA'S 27 YEARS IN MINISTRY AND AS ALWAYS,
