Caption transcript for Israel, My Love: Part 4 (4/6)

  • 00:08 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..
  • 00:18 THE BELIEVERS WILL BE..
  • 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.
  • 00:39 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:40 I'M SANDRA LEVITT.
  • 00:42 I'M HERE WITH JEFF SEIF
  • 00:44 AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE RETROSPECTIVE OF ZOLA LEVITT'S MINISTRIES,
  • 00:47 27 YEARS OF A RETROSPECTIVE OF A LIFE OF A MAN AND THE LIFE OF MINISTRY, JEFF,
  • 00:53 THAT I THINK IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT TO ALL OF US.
  • 00:55 YES, A KEY MINISTRY I BELIEVE, PARTICULARLY
  • 00:57 BECAUSE THIS IS A WORK THAT PENETRATES INTO THE BIBLE FROM A JEWISH PERSPECTIVE
  • 01:03 THAT REDISCOVERS JESUS' JEWISH ROOTS, THAT REDISCOVERS ISRAEL AND BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 01:09 MUCH AS ZOLA BEGAN DEVELOPING THAT AND DID SO FOR 27 YEARS,
  • 01:13 WE MUST CONTINUE WELL INTO THE FUTURE.
  • 01:16 YOU KNOW, ZOLA ALWAYS SAID, THIS IS A JEWISH BOOK, WRITTEN BY JEWISH MEN FOR OUR CONSUMPTION.
  • 01:22 YES.
  • 01:23 AND I ALWAYS LOVED THAT.
  • 01:25 ONE OF THE MOST LOVELY PROGRAMS, I THINK,THAT ZOLA MADE,
  • 01:29 ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WAS "SEVEN FEASTS".
  • 01:31 HE ALSO MADE A PROGRAM CALLED "HOLY DAYS OF OUR LORD".
  • 01:34 WONDERFUL PROGRAMS, I HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM.
  • 01:38 AND THE LORD SPOKE UNTO MOSES SAYING, SPEAK UNTO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND SAY UNTO THEM,
  • 01:45 CONCERNING THE FEASTS OF THE LORD, WHICH YE SHALL PROCLAIM TO BE HOLY CONVOCATIONS,
  • 01:50 EVEN THESE ARE MY FEASTS,
  • 01:54 "THE SEVEN FEASTS OF ISRAEL", GOD'S HOLY DAYS
  • 01:58 COMMEMORATED BY THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND FULFILLED BY THE LAMB OF GOD
  • 02:03 ♪♪
  • 02:18 AND I'M WEARING A COSTUME OF THE HIGH PRIEST OF ISRAEL,
  • 02:22 CARRYING THE SENSOR IN WHICH HE CARRIED COALS
  • 02:25 FROM THE BRAZEN ALTAR OUTSIDE TO THE ALTAR OF INCENSE
  • 02:29 IN THE HOLY PLACE IN THE TABERNACLE AND LATER IN THE TEMPLES.
  • 02:34 I'M STANDING BY WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE CORNERSTONE OF THE BUILDING, WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED.
  • 02:41 THIS STONE FELL FROM THE PINNACLE OF THE SOUTHWESTERN WALL OF THE TEMPLE
  • 02:46 AND IS MENTIONED BOTH IN THE PSALMS AND IN THE EPISTLES AS THE CORNERSTONE OF THE BUILDING
  • 02:52 AND IT WAS SAID IN THE BIBLE IT WOULD BE A STUMBLING BLOCK TO ISRAEL AND IN A CURIOUS WAY,
  • 02:57 IT STANDS IN THE MIDST OF A PAVEMENT
  • 03:00 SO THAT IF YOU WANTED TO WALK BACK HERE, INDEED YOU HAVE TO STEP AROUND IT.
  • 03:04 NO, IT WAS ROSH HASHANAH.
  • 03:06 ROSH HASHANAH >>RIGHT.
  • 03:08 WHICH MEANS THE "HEAD OF THE YEAR, THE BEGINNING".
  • 03:10 START OF FIRST DAY OF THE NEW YEAR
  • 03:14 AND IT WAS A VERY, VERY IMPORTANT HOLIDAY TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 03:20 THAT AND YOM KIPPUR, I WOULD SAY ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT.
  • 03:23 IT WAS NOT A JOYOUS HOLIDAY
  • 03:28 LIKE PASSOVER OR HANUKKAH OR ANY OF THOSE.
  • 03:31 THIS WAS A DAY THAT YOU KNEW EVEN AS CHILDREN,
  • 03:35 WE KNEW THAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BEHAVE BETTER THAN WE DID ANY OTHER TIME.
  • 03:40 YES, I REMEMBER THAT PART, THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 03:42 IT IS WRITTEN IN THE SCRIPTURES THAT WE SHOULD JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM THREE TIMES A YEAR.
  • 03:48 WE ARE GOING UP TO THE CITY OF GOD TO JERUSALEM TO CELEBRATE.
  • 03:58 THE LORD TOLD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL TO HONOR SEVEN HOLY CELEBRATIONS EACH YEAR
  • 04:02 INVOLVING THREE JOURNEYS TO JERUSALEM.
  • 04:05 EACH FESTIVAL WOULD BE UNIQUELY FULFILLED IN THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH.
  • 04:27 SPEAK TO ALL THE CONGREGATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 04:29 EVERY HOUSEHOLD SHALL TAKE AN UNBLEMISHED MALE LAMB
  • 04:33 AND KILL IT ON THE FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE MONTH AT TWILIGHT.
  • 04:37 TAKE SOME OF THE BLOOD AND PUT IT THE TWO DOORPOSTS
  • 04:41 AND ON THE LINTEL OF THE HOUSE WHERE YOU EAT IT.
  • 04:43 WITH A BELT ON YOUR WAIST, YOUR SANDALS ON YOUR FEET AND YOUR STAFF IN YOUR HAND.
  • 04:48 SO, YOU SHALL EAT IT IN HASTE.
  • 04:52 IT IS THE LORD'S PASSOVER.
  • 04:54 THE CHRISTIANS CHANGED FIRST FRUITS TO EASTER AND THAT'S A MIGHTY STRANGE ONE THERE.
  • 05:01 FIRST FRUITS IS THE NAME OF THIS SUNDAY AFTER PASSOVER.
  • 05:05 EASTER IS THE NAME OF THE BABYLONIAN GODDESS ISHTAR.
  • 05:08 I'VE TAUGHT THIS BEFORE IN OTHER CONTEXT, BUT ISHTAR WAS A GODDESS OF FERTILITY.
  • 05:12 THAT'S DIFFERENT THAN RESURRECTION.
  • 05:14 THE BABYLONIANS HELD FERTILITY RIGHTS EVERY SPRING.
  • 05:17 THEY PUT ON NEW OUTFITS BECAUSE THE TREES WERE PUTTING ON NEW CLOTHES.
  • 05:21 THEY WORSHIPED THE THING IN NATURE THAT ARE FERTILE,
  • 05:25 THE RABBITS, THE EGGS, DO ANY OF THESE SOUND FAMILIAR?
  • 05:28 WE HAVE TAKEN THE BABYLONIAN FESTIVAL
  • 05:31 AND SOMEHOW AMALGAMATED IT WITH THE RESURRECTION DAY OF THE LORD.
  • 05:35 THAT'S REALLY A MISTAKE.
  • 05:36 ZOLA USED TO GO AFTER SOME ISSUES, THINGS THAT WERE REALLY IMPORTANT TO HIM.
  • 05:41 WRONGS THAT NEEDED RIGHTED.
  • 05:43 PARTICULARLY, ZOLA DIDN'T LIKE THE WAY THE CHURCH LOST SIGHT OF THE JEWISH ROOTS.
  • 05:47 ZOLA DIDN'T LIKE THE WAY ISRAEL WAS THROWN OUT OF GOD'S ECONOMY
  • 05:51 AS INTERPRETED BY MANY A BIBLE TEACHER.
  • 05:54 AND IN AS MUCH AS ZOLA WAS MINDED TO CORRECT THESE WRONGS,
  • 05:57 WE PLAN TO CONTINUE DON'T WE SANDRA.
  • 05:59 AMEN, JEFF.
  • 06:01 I KNOW THERE WERE THINGS THAT MADE HIM JUST SO ANGRY,
  • 06:04 WHEN PEOPLE TALKED WRONG ABOUT ISRAEL OR WRONG ABOUT DISPENSATIONS.
  • 06:08 I KNOW IT MADE HIM ANGRY.
  • 06:10 AND THEN THERE WAS A SIDE OF HIM THAT I LOVED
  • 06:12 AND HE WOULD WRITE THESE WONDERFUL MUSIC AND WONDERFUL PROGRAMS.
  • 06:16 ONE OF THE SERIES THAT HE DID WAS CALLED "LOVE STORIES OF THE BIBLE"
  • 06:20 AND IT WAS JUST SWEET, SWEET LOVE STORIES.
  • 06:22 I THINK YOU'LL LIKE THESE.
  • 06:25 BY NIGHT ON MY BED I SOUGHT HIM WHOM MY SOUL LOVETH.
  • 06:31 AS THE LILY AMONG THE THORNS, SO ARE YOU MY LOVE.
  • 06:36 THOU ART FAIR, MY LOVE.
  • 06:38 THOU HAST EYES OF DOVES.
  • 06:43 I FOUND HIM WHOM MY SOUL LOVETH.
  • 06:47 I HELD HIM AND WOULD NOT LET HIM GO.
  • 07:04 MY BELOVED IS MINE AND I AM HIS.
  • 07:19 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 07:20 WELL, WE'VE COME TO THE GARDEN OF EDEN
  • 07:23 TO MAKE A PROGRAM FOR YOU ABOUT THE PERFECT RELATIONSHIP.
  • 07:26 THIS IS OUR SERIES ON "LOVE STORIES IN THE BIBLE"
  • 07:29 AND THE FIRST AND ONE OF THE MOST DRAMATIC IS THE STORY OF ADAM AND EVE, OBVIOUSLY.
  • 07:34 I LIKE THE TRANSLATION IN THE LIVING BIBLE WHEN ADAM'S BEEN NAMING ANIMALS AND SO ON
  • 07:39 AND GOD PUTS HIM TO SLEEP AND MAKES HIM A WOMAN
  • 07:42 AND SHE COMES UP AND IN THE LIVING BIBLE HE LOOKS AT HER AND SAYS, "THIS IS IT."
  • 07:48 YOU KNOW, AT 15 YEARS OLD, DANIEL PRAYED FOR A WIFE.
  • 07:53 NOW, SHARIA WAS NOT VERY FAR ALONG IN LIFE,
  • 07:56 BUT DANIEL KNEW WHAT HE WANTED IN A HELPMATE.
  • 08:00 AT THAT AGE I STARTED PRAYING FOR GOD TO GIVE ME A PROVERBS 31 WIFE, A VIRTUOUS WIFE.
  • 08:08 I REMEMBER PRAYING TO THE LORD AND SAYING, LORD, I'M NOT GOING TO LOOK ANYMORE FOR BEAUTY,
  • 08:16 BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS IN THE PROVERBS THAT BEAUTY IS VAIN AND DECEITFUL
  • 08:20 AND I DO PRAY TO THE LORD, THOUGH, GIVE ME A GOOD WIFE, A VIRTUOUS WIFE,
  • 08:25 BUT I SAID BUT, PLEASE DON'T LET HER BE UGLY.
  • 08:27 I ADDED THAT TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE.

  • 09:39 IF YOU HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO PETER, JAMES AND JOHN FIRST HAND,
  • 09:42 WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO TALK ABOUT?
  • 09:44 I'D LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HOW LIFE WAS LIKE AT THAT TIME,
  • 09:49 WHY THEY DID THE THINGS THAT THEY DID, THE CUSTOMS.
  • 09:53 I WOULD SAY, LET ME FOLLOW YOU, LET ME LEARN FROM YOU,
  • 09:55 LET ME LEARN FROM WHAT YOU GUYS ARE DOING AND GROW
  • 09:58 AND IT'S A LIFELONG EXPERIENCE, IT'S LEARNING.
  • 10:00 WELL, I'M A WOMAN, I'M A GRANDMA, I'D LOVE TO HUG THEM. FORGIVE ME.
  • 10:04 I'D WANT THEM TO TELL ME ALL ABOUT JESUS, WOULDN'T YOU?
  • 10:14 YOU JUST FEEL LIKE YOU'RE PART OF IT EVEN THOUGH IT'S 2000 YEARS AGO.
  • 10:18 THAT'S ISRAEL.
  • 10:20 IT NEVER CHANGES, I LOVE EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF BEING IN ISRAEL.
  • 10:24 WE NEED TO BE THERE. YOU NEED TO BE THERE.
  • 10:27 YOU NEED TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL.
  • 10:29 COME SEE IT, YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE THERE FOREVER.
  • 10:31 YOU MIGHT AS WELL PICK OUT YOUR FAVORITE HOUSE.
  • 10:33 IT'S GLORIOUS, ISN'T IT JEFF?
  • 10:35 YES, AND WHEN FOLK GO WITH US, THEY DON'T JUST SEE THE HOLY SITES.
  • 10:38 WE TAKE THEM TO THE MESSIANIC MOVEMENT IN ISRAEL.
  • 10:40 THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 10:42 WHERE PEOPLE CAN DISCOVER WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE LAND.
  • 10:44 SPEAKING OF DISCOVERIES, ONE OF ZOLA'S GREATEST DISCOVERIES THEOLOGICALLY,
  • 10:47 WAS "BELOVED THIEF" WHEREIN HE LOOKED AT THE JEWISH WEDDING CEREMONY
  • 10:53 AND SAW HOW THAT CORRELATED SO WELL TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS.
  • 10:56 WE'RE GOING TO SEE THAT IN A SECOND.
  • 11:46 I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A BIBLE STORY NOW, MORE THAN A STORY;
  • 11:50 I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A BIBLE SECRET.
  • 11:53 I HAVE THE BIBLE HERE, THE PART WRITTEN BEFORE MESSIAH CAME AND THE PART WRITTEN AFTER,
  • 11:58 WHAT WE'VE COME TO CALL THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 12:02 OUR SUBJECT IS LOVE AND MARRIAGE, HOW TWO PEOPLE BECOME ONE.

  • 13:29 GO YE OUT TO MEET HIM.
  • 13:34 ZOLA LEVITT WAS A NUMBER OF THINGS, A BIBLE TEACHER, YES.
  • 13:38 A MUSICIAN, ON TOP OF IT, A PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED ONE AT THAT
  • 13:42 AND ZOLA LOVED TO BRING ALL THAT TOGETHER AND SHOW PICTURES OF ISRAEL,
  • 13:46 GREAT COMBINATION WASN'T IT, SANDRA?
  • 13:48 YOU KNOW, JEFF, ISRAEL IS AN INSPIRATION.
  • 13:50 I CAN SEE THE PROGRAMS THAT ZOLA'S DONE AND THE MUSIC,
  • 13:54 I CAN HEAR THE MUSIC AND SEE THE LANDSCAPES.
  • 13:56 THEY'RE JUST LOVELY AND I KNOW THAT ISRAEL WAS HIS INSPIRATION.
  • 14:00 HERE'S SOME EXCERPTS FROM SOME OF THOSE PROGRAMS.
  • 14:17 PRESENTING A TOUR OF THE BIBLE LANDS WITH ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 14:28 AND YE SHALL BE WITNESSES UNTO ME, BOTH IN JERUSALEM AND ALL JUDEA AND IN SAMARIA
  • 14:37 AND UNTO THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH.
  • 15:08 I'M BACK AGAIN AT THE WESTERN WALL.
  • 15:10 EXCUSE ME FOR A MOMENT'S CONFUSION, BUT, MY WHAT A SCENE, WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SCENE.
  • 15:15 NOW, I WAS TALKING ABOUT THESE YOUNG BOYS WHO ARE BECOMING SONS OF THE COMMANDMENTS,
  • 15:21 RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR DEEDS, RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LAW.
  • 15:24 YOU KNOW, JESUS DID THIS IN A SENSE IN THE BOOK OF LUKE
  • 15:28 WE FIND HIM AT 12 YEARS OLD IN THE TEMPLE, IT SAYS, HE ASKED GOOD QUESTIONS.
  • 15:33 THAT MAKES SENSE.
  • 15:35 DURING THE 12TH YEAR THE BOY WOULD BE STUDYING WITH THE RABBIS PREPARING FOR THIS.
  • 15:39 ON A TOUR OF ISRAEL, SOME THINGS DON'T CHANGE AND SOME THINGS ARE DIFFERENT FROM YEAR TO YEAR.
  • 15:46 WE'RE LOOKING AT THE DOME OF THE AL AQSA MOSQUE FROM AN UNUSUAL ANGLE,
  • 15:50 THE SIDE OF THE SOUTHERN WALL OF THE TEMPLE.
  • 15:53 WE'RE ACTUALLY BEHIND THE DOME AND WE GET BEHIND IT ON THIS TOUR
  • 15:57 BECAUSE SOMETHING NEW HAS HAPPENED.
  • 15:59 THEY'VE DUG OUT THE STAIRS AND RESTORED THEM
  • 16:02 WHERE THE PEOPLE USED TO ENTER THE TEMPLE SITE FROM THE SOUTHERN WALL.
  • 16:06 IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THE LATTER DAYS THAT JERUSALEM
  • 16:10 AND THE HOUSE OF THE LORD SHALL BE ESTABLISHED.
  • 16:12 ALL NATIONS SHALL FLOW INTO IT AND MANY PEOPLE SHALL SAY
  • 16:16 LET US GO UP TO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD.
  • 16:33 AND HE SHALL JUDGE BETWEEN THE NATIONS
  • 16:35 AND THEY SHALL BEAT THEIR SWORDS INTO PLOW SHARES
  • 16:38 AND THEIR SPEARS INTO PRUNING HOOKS.
  • 16:41 NATIONS SHALL NOT LIFT UP SWORD AGAINST NATION,
  • 16:45 NEITHER SHALL THEY LEARN WAR ANYMORE.
  • 17:09 ONCE YOUR BOAT ARRIVES AT CAPERNAUM,
  • 17:10 YOU QUICKLY FIND YOURSELF WALKING AMONG THE REMAINS OF BUILDINGS AND ARTIFACTS
  • 17:15 THAT WERE HERE WHEN JESUS STAYED IN PETER'S HOME.
  • 17:18 IT IS A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE KNOWING THAT YOU ARE AT THE LOCATION
  • 17:22 WHERE JESUS LAUNCHED HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY.
  • 17:26 WE PLACED OUR MICROPHONE AT THE TOP OF THE HILL AND ZOLA AND JOSEPH AT THE BOTTOM
  • 17:32 TO DEMONSTRATE HOW A GROUP OR 5000 PEOPLE
  • 17:35 COULD HAVE ACTUALLY HEARD JESUS WHEN HE DELIVERED HIS MESSAGE.
  • 17:40 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 17:44 BLESSED ARE THE MEEK, FOR THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.
  • 17:48 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 17:55 BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH DO HUNGER AND THIRST AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 17:59 FOR THEY SHALL BE FILLED.
  • 18:01 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 18:07 BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL, FOR THEY SHALL OBTAIN MERCY.
  • 18:50 LEAVING JERICHO, WE TRAVEL WESTWARD TO JUST SOUTH OF JERUSALEM
  • 18:54 TO THE SITE OF OUR LORD'S BIRTH, THE CHURCH OF THE NATIVITY IN BETHLEHEM.
  • 19:17 BELOW THE MAIN FLOOR, STAIRS LEAD TO WHAT IS TRADITIONALLY
  • 19:20 THE EXACT SPOT WHERE JESUS WAS BORN.
  • 19:23 THIS IS THE PICTURE WE HAVE OF OUR LORD, THIS PIECE OF BREAD
  • 19:29 AND WHEN WE INGEST THIS PIECE OF BREAD, WE INGEST THAT QUALITY OF RISING FORTH FROM THE EARTH.
  • 19:36 HE SAID IN THE BLESSING, HE PRAISED GOD FOR BRINGING FORTH BREAD FROM THE EARTH,
  • 19:40 WELL, GOD HAS DONE IT.
  • 19:42 AND EVERYONE OF OUR TOMBS WILL BE EMPTY ONE DAY IF WE USE THEM AT ALL.
  • 19:48 YOU CANNOT BURY ANY CHRISTIAN PERMANENTLY.
  • 19:56 IF THEY TRY TO SELL YOU A BURIAL PLOT, TELL THEM YOU BELONG TO JESUS, YOU JUST WANT TO RENT.
  • 20:01 (LAUGHING)
  • 20:06 ONE OF THE THINGS ZOLA REALLY LIKED TO DO WAS SPECIAL THINGS THAT WERE GOING ON IN ISRAEL.
  • 20:12 ONE OF THE PROGRAMS THAT HE MADE IS CALLED "JERUSALEM 3000".
  • 20:21 THUS SAYETH THE LORD, I HAVE CHOSEN JERUSALEM THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE THERE
  • 20:28 AND HAVE CHOSEN DAVID TO BE OVER MY PEOPLE, ISRAEL.
  • 20:33 AS THE MOUNTAINS ARE ROUND ABOUT HER,
  • 20:36 SO THE LORD IS ROUND ABOUT HIS PEOPLE FROM HENCEFORTH EVEN FOREVER.
  • 20:42 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM THEY SHALL PROSPER THAT LOVE THEE.
  • 20:49 PEACE BE WITHIN THY WALLS AND PROSPERITY WITHIN THY PALACES,
  • 20:55 FOR THE LAW SHALL GO FROM ZION AND THE WORD OF THE LORD FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 21:02 REJOICE YE WITH JERUSALEM AND BE GLAD WITH HER ALL YE THAT LOVE HER.
  • 21:16 MT. MORIAH AS YOU SEE IS A MOUNTAIN INSIDE A VALLEY.
  • 21:20 THE WHOLE JERUSALEM IS KIND OF A BOWL AND THEN IN THE MIDDLE IS MT. MORIAH
  • 21:25 AND ON TOP OF MT. MORIAH IS THE DOME
  • 21:28 AND THAT IS THE DESTINATION OF ABRAHAM AND ISAAC WHEN HE OFFERED HIM IN SACRIFICE.
  • 21:33 THAT WAS 2000 BC, 2000 YEARS BEFORE CHRIST AND 4000 YEARS FROM WHERE WE ARE TODAY.
  • 21:45 THIS MARCH HAPPENS EVER YEAR IN JERUSALEM AT SIKKOR TIME,
  • 21:48 BUT IN THIS YEAR THERE'LL BE A VERY SPECIAL FOCUS ON IT
  • 21:51 AND ONE OF THE FIRST IN THIS MARCH WILL BE THE DIFFERENT FLOATS,
  • 21:54 ORGANIZATIONS, COUNTRIES, CITIES, THE CHRISTIANS ALSO HAVE A FLOAT
  • 21:58 THAT REPRESENTS THE INTERNATIONAL CHARACTER OF THE CHRISTIANS THAT COME TO THE CITY
  • 22:03 AND I BELIEVE THAT THE CHRISTIAN MARCHERS WILL BE ALMOST HALF OF THE MARCHERS.
  • 22:08 THEY INVITED THE CHRISTIANS WITH A DIFFERENT COLORFUL NATIONAL BACKGROUNDS AND COSTUMES
  • 22:15 AND FLAGS AND BANNERS TO BE THE INTERNATIONAL ELEMENT IN THIS MARCH.
  • 22:20 THEY EXPECT AROUND 100,000 ISRAELIS TO COME AND LINE THE STREETS AND WATCH THIS MARCH.
  • 22:25 IN HIS 27 YEARS, ZOLA MET A LOT OF INTERESTING PEOPLE
  • 22:30 AND DID A LOT OF WONDERFUL INTERVIEWS IN ISRAEL,
  • 22:32 SOME OF WHICH WE'RE GOING TO BRING TO YOU RIGHT NOW.
  • 22:35 FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS JEWS ARE PRAYING 3 TIMES A DAY FOR JERUSALEM
  • 22:42 FOR THE REBUILDING OF JERUSALEM AND WHEN THEY PRAY,
  • 22:46 THEY TURN THEIR FACE TO THE EAST TOWARDS THE DIRECTION OF JERUSALEM.
  • 22:50 WAS THIS POLITICS, 2000 YEARS OF PRAYER,
  • 22:54 WAS THIS POLITICS, 2000 YEARS WHEN JEWS ARE PRAYING EVERY YOM KIPPUR AND EVERY PESACH,
  • 23:04 NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM?
  • 23:06 WAS IT POLITICS, WAS IT CONNECTED WITH SOME POLITICAL CONTROVERSIES
  • 23:10 THAT JUST TOOK PLACE IN THE LAST COUPLE YEARS
  • 23:12 OR WAS IT THE DEEPEST REFLECTION OF THE ATTACHMENT OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THEIR CAPITAL?
  • 23:19 I UNDERSTOOD THAT YOU HELD SECRET MEETINGS ABOUT HOW TO HELP THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 23:24 THERE ARE MEETINGS IN THE BASEMENT
  • 23:28 AND WE ASKED EACH OTHER HOW WE CAN HELP THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 23:33 SO, FINALLY THEY FOUND YOU, THEY ARRESTED YOU.
  • 23:36 WHERE DID YOU GO?
  • 23:37 I COME FIRST TO RAVENSBURG.
  • 23:39 RAVENSBURG.
  • 23:40 YEAH.
  • 23:41 YOU WERE A NURSE. >>YES.
  • 23:43 SO, THEY PUT YOU TO WORK IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 23:45 YEAH.
  • 23:45 WHAT DID YOU DO?
  • 23:47 HEAL THE SICK.
  • 23:48 HEAL THE SICK.
  • 23:49 WELL WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS INCH FORWARD AS FAST AS WE CAN
  • 23:54 TOWARDS SOME KIND OF ACCOMMODATION
  • 23:56 IN WHICH THE PALESTINIANS WILL BE ABLE TO LEAD THEIR LIVES BY THEMSELVES AND LET THE JEWS,
  • 24:00 THE ISRAELIS LEAD THEIR LIVES AS THEMSELVES AND TRY TO WORK OUT AN ARRANGEMENT
  • 24:03 WHERE WE BOTH SHARE THE SAME LAND.
  • 24:05 BUT, THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO BE SUBJECTED TO THE KIND OF
  • 24:09 FIRST TERRORIST AND THEN LATER THE KIND OF AGGRESSION THAT WILL ENDANGER ITS EXISTENCE.
  • 24:16 AS I SAID BEFORE, I THINK IT WILL COME OUT A VICTOR, BUT, IT'S GOING TO BE A WAR,
  • 24:19 IT'S GOING TO BLOODSHED AND IT'S GOING TO BE THE SORT OF THING
  • 24:22 THAT ISRAEL HAS BEEN TRYING TO AVOID ALL THESE YEARS.
  • 24:25 WHO WOULD THINK THAT THAT INTERVIEW FROM DAVID BAR ILLAN WAS DONE IN 1995, 11 YEARS AGO?
  • 24:33 GOODNESS, SANDRA, IT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE YESTERDAY.
  • 24:35 NOTHING EVER CHANGES.
  • 24:38 THINK ABOUT KING SOLOMON, NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.
  • 24:41 GOLDA MEIR, BACK IN THE 60'S SAID,
  • 24:44 "ISRAEL WILL NOT COMMIT SUICIDE SO THAT WE CAN PLEASE ANYBODY ELSE."
  • 24:49 THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO IT AND THAT'S THE ATTITUDE THAT I FOUND THIS TIME IN ISRAEL,
  • 24:53 WAS THAT THESE PEOPLE ARE COMMITTED TO STAYING THE COURSE
  • 24:57 AND IT WAS WONDERFUL TO BE THERE.
  • 25:37 YES, AND THEY NEED TO BE COMMITTED TO STAYING THE COURSE, OF COURSE
  • 25:39 AND SO DO WE HERE AT ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES.
  • 25:43 SANDRA IS NOT ZOLA LEVITT AND I'M NOT ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 25:46 WE ARE WHO WE ARE.
  • 25:48 THE IMPORTANT THING FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE IS THAT THE STORY NEEDS TO BE TOLD.
  • 25:53 WE WANT TO LOOK AT THE JEWISH ROOTS OF JESUS.
  • 25:56 IT'S A STORY THAT NEEDS TO BE TOLD.
  • 25:58 WE WANT TO LOOK AT ISRAEL AND BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 26:00 T'S A STORY THAT NEEDS TO BE TOLD
  • 26:03 AND WE'RE PLEASED TO CONTINUE TO TELL THAT STORY
  • 26:06 AND WE JUST ENCOURAGE YOU AND COVET YOUR PARTICIPATION AS WE CONTINUE,
  • 26:11 BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO ME, SANDRA, THAT THE STORY THAT WE'RE TELLING
  • 26:14 NEEDS TO BE TOLD AS MUCH NOW AS EVER.
  • 26:17 WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • 26:18 MORE NOW THAN EVER.
  • 26:19 WE USED TO SAY "DON'T BUY ANY GREEN BANANAS".
  • 26:22 THAT'S HOW CLOSE I THINK THE END IS.
  • 26:24 WE'VE GOT TO PRAY FOR ISRAEL.
  • 26:27 WE'VE GOT TO GET OUT AND WITNESS TO PEOPLE.
  • 26:29 WE'VE GOT TO STAY THE COURSE AND STAY STRONG.
  • 26:32 WE REALLY DO, JEFF.
  • 26:33 AND I APPRECIATE THAT YOU'RE HERE AND TOGETHER
  • 26:36 WE'RE GOING TO MAKE WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL PROGRAMS.
  • 26:39 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM, PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
