Caption transcript for Israel, My Love: Part 5 (5/6)

  • 00:07 HE'S GOING TO PREACH CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:10 FAMINE, PESTILENCE, EARTHQUAKES, WARS, THE SECOND RESURRECTIONS OF UNBELIEVERS.
  • 00:15 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, I'M JEFFREY SEIF AND I AM HERE WITH SANDRA LEVITT
  • 00:44 AND TOGETHER WE'RE HOSTING THE 5TH OF A 6 PART COMMEMORATIVE SERIES ON ZOLA LEVITT,
  • 00:51 ARGUABLY THE GREATEST MESSIANIC JEWISH COMMUNICATOR OF OUR TIMES.
  • 00:56 WASN'T HE, SANDRA?
  • 00:58 HE WAS TERRIFIC, JEFF.
  • 01:00 YOU KNOW, WHEN HE WAS SAVED,
  • 01:01 HE ALWAYS THOUGHT HE WAS THE ONLY BELIEVER OUT THERE THAT WAS JEWISH
  • 01:05 AND IT WAS ALRIGHT TO BE A CHRISTIAN BELIEVER, BUT WHEN IT CAME TO BEING A JEWISH BELIEVER,
  • 01:10 IT WAS SOMETHING OF A STRANGE ODDITY THERE.
  • 01:13 I WOULD IMAGINE IN THE FIRST CENTURY IF SOMEONE WAS A NON-JEWISH BELIEVER
  • 01:17 THEY WOULD HAVE FELT ODD.
  • 01:18 WITH THAT IN MIND, WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT A SERIES THAT ZOLA DID CALLED
  • 01:23 "THE FIRST CHRISTIANS".
  • 01:25 THEREIN HE LOOKS AT THE JEWISH ROOTS OF JESUS
  • 01:28 AND THE JEWISH ROOTS OF THE MOVEMENT THAT WE CALL CHRISTIANITY TODAY.
  • 01:34 ISRAEL, THE LAND OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 01:40 IT WAS HERE DURING ONE GLIMMERING MOMENT OF TIME
  • 01:44 THAT THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE CHOSE TO SPEAK IN A PERSONAL WAY TO ALL MANKIND.
  • 01:49 IT HAPPENED 2000 YEARS AGO.
  • 02:00 THESE WERE THE ONES WHOM HE CHOSE TO CALL BRETHREN, WITH WHOM HE CHOSE TO SUP.
  • 02:09 THE PEOPLE THAT WALKED IN DARKNESS HAVE SEEN A GREAT LIGHT.
  • 02:13 THEY THAT DWELL IN THE LAND OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM HATH THE LIGHT SHINED.
  • 02:23 THE BODY WAS FIRST WASHED AND ANOINTED WITH SPICES AND PERFUMES.
  • 02:28 SINCE THERE WAS NO EMBALMING OF THE BODY, DECAY WAS IMMINENT,
  • 02:32 THUS THE SPICES AND PERFUME WOULD HELP COUNTERACT THE SMELL OF THE ROTTING CORPSE.
  • 02:36 AFTER COATING THE BODY WITH SPICES AND PERFUME, THE BODY WAS THEN WRAPPED WITH LINEN CLOTHS.
  • 02:43 THIS WAS BASED ON A RULING MADE BY RABBI GAMALIEL IN THE FIRST CENTURY
  • 02:49 THAT BODY SHOULD BE WRAPPED IN WHITE CLOTHS.
  • 02:51 WE SEE THIS PRACTICE CARRIED OUT IN THE CASE OF BOTH LAZARUS AND JESUS.
  • 03:02 ZECHARIAH 14:4 SAYS, HIS FEET WILL STAND THAT DAY ON THE MT. OF OLIVES,
  • 03:07 WHICH IS NEXT TO JERUSALEM ON THE EAST AND THAT'S WHERE WE ARE.
  • 03:10 UP ON THE SUMMIT IS WHEN HE WILL COME AND THEY READ IT, OF COURSE
  • 03:15 THE FIRST COMING IF THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN JESUS, BUT NEVERTHELESS, THE MESSIAH,
  • 03:20 WHOEVER HE IS WILL COME DOWN THIS MOUNTAIN.
  • 03:22 SO, THEY'RE BURIED HERE SO THEY CAN BE IN THE RESURRECTION
  • 03:25 AND WHERE DID THEY GET THE IDEA OF THE RESURRECTION,
  • 03:28 WELL, THOSE WHO KNOW THE SCRIPTURES CERTAINLY READ IT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 03:32 THE SCRIPTURE IS FULL OF IT.
  • 03:37 WHAT THEY DID IS, THEY LAID AT THE BASE OF THE TREE, A CLOTH
  • 03:41 THAT WOULD CATCH THE FRUIT AS IT CAME DOWN FROM THE TREE.
  • 03:44 THE METHOD OF GATHERING THE FRUIT WAS DIFFERENT IN VARIOUS WAYS.
  • 03:49 FOR EXAMPLE, IT WAS POSSIBLE TO CLIMB UP IN THE TREE AND PICK THE FRUIT BY HAND.
  • 03:54 ONE COULD ALSO, UP IN THE TREE, SHAKE THE BRANCHES AND THIS WOULD RELEASE SOME OF THE FRUIT.
  • 04:00 IT WAS ALSO POSSIBLE ON THE GROUND WITH LONG STICKS, TO REACH UP AND HIT THE TREE
  • 04:05 AND ALSO KNOCK DOWN THE FRUIT, AS WELL.
  • 04:59 THAT WAS ZOLA PLAYING HIS RECORDER IN A MESSIANIC COMMUNITY.
  • 05:02 YOU KNOW, JEFF, I LOVE SEEING WHAT GOD DOES WITH THE MESSIANIC COMMUNITY IN ISRAEL.
  • 05:06 IT'S TRULY IS AMAZING.
  • 05:08 IT IS A BURGEONING WORK OVER THERE, WHAT GOD IS DOING.
  • 05:11 LAST DAY'S PROPHECY, JEWISH PEOPLE COMING TO FAITH AND SPEAKING OF LAST DAY'S PROPHECY,
  • 05:17 I REMEMBER SOME YEARS AGO THE WORLD WAS AWASH IN ENTHUSIASM, Y2K WAS APPROACHING,
  • 05:23 PEOPLE ENVISIONED COMPUTERS SHUTTING DOWN AND ALL THE REST.
  • 05:26 ZOLA NEVER GOT CAUGHT UP IN ALL THE HYPE.
  • 05:28 HE DID A SERIES "PROPHECY 2000".
  • 05:31 HE BROUGHT SOBRIETY TO THE Y2K FERVOR.
  • 05:44 NEAR IS THE GREAT DAY OF THE LORD, NEAR AND COMING VERY QUICKLY.
  • 05:49 LISTEN, THE DAY OF THE LORD, A DAY OF WRATH IS THAT DAY,
  • 05:54 A DAY OF TROUBLE AND DISTRESS, A DAY OF DESTRUCTION AND DESOLATION,
  • 06:00 A DAY OF DARKNESS AND GLOOM AND I WILL BRING DISTRESS ON MEN
  • 06:04 BECAUSE THEY HAVE SINNED AGAINST THE LORD.
  • 06:19 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 06:21 WELCOME BACK TO OUR "PROPHECY 2000" SERIES.
  • 06:23 NOW, BELIEVERS OF COURSE, SHOULD FOCUS ON SCRIPTURE,
  • 06:26 NOT BARRICADES LIKE THESE SURVIVALISTS ARE DOING.
  • 06:30 SCRIPTURES GUARANTEES OUR SAFE KEEPING AND I DON'T KNOW IF WE NEED TO DO THIS.
  • 06:36 WE'RE GOING TO TAKE YOU TO ISRAEL, GOD'S REAL TIMEPIECE
  • 06:39 AND SHOW YOU WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IN PROPHECY.
  • 06:42 AND THE 3RD WAS THE PROBLEM THAT HAD TO BE RESOLVED IN THE BOOK,
  • 06:45 THE SEVEN SEALED SCROLLS, SOMEONE WHO WAS WORTHY,
  • 06:48 WHO IS OF DIVINE AUTHORITY
  • 06:49 HAD TO COME AND TAKE THE SCROLL FROM THE HAND OF THE FATHER
  • 06:52 AND JESUS COMES AS THE LAMB OF GOD AND OPENS THE SCROLL.
  • 06:56 AND THEN POINT 4 WE LOOKED AT THE PROCESS OF JUDGMENT
  • 06:59 THAT FOLLOWED IN THE OPENING OF THE 7 SEALS,
  • 07:01 THE SOUNDING OF THE 7 TRUMPETS,
  • 07:03 THOSE DEVASTATING JUDGMENTS THAT ARE ALL PART OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD ON EARTH
  • 07:08 AND IT BRINGS US TO A CLIMAX IN THE 11TH CHAPTER WHERE HEAVEN IS OPENED,
  • 07:13 THE ARK OF THE COVENANT IS REVEALED, THE VOICE OF GOD SPEAKS
  • 07:17 AND YOU ALMOST GET THE FEELING THAT IT'S OVER WITH.
  • 07:20 THE DENOMINATIONS WILL BE LEFT OVER AFTER THE RAPTURE,
  • 07:23 THOSE THAT AREN'T BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS, THAT WOULD INCLUDE VERY FEW JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 07:27 WHEN JEWISH PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST, THEY TEND TO COME ALL THE WAY.
  • 07:31 THEY GO TO BIBLE CHURCHES, THEY READ SCRIPTURE.
  • 07:33 THAT'S HOW THEY GOT TO CHRIST.
  • 07:35 THEY CHECK THE SCRIPTURES AND THEY TEND TO BE IN CHURCHES THAT READ THE BIBLE
  • 07:40 AND THOSE TEND TO BE BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS.
  • 07:42 THEY TEACH SALVATION DOCTRINE AND THEY WILL GO IN THE RAPTURE.
  • 07:47 AS IT IS WRITTEN, NO EYE HAS SEEN,NO EAR HAS HEARD,
  • 07:51 NO MIND HAS CONCEIVED WHAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.
  • 07:57 FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT,
  • 08:01 WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL AND WITH THE TRUMPET OF GOD.
  • 08:05 YOU SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER
  • 08:09 AND COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.
  • 08:20 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 08:22 WELCOME BACK TO OUR NEW SERIES ON PROPHECY THAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE BELIEVERS,
  • 08:28 RATHER THAN THE USUAL DIRE EVENTS OF ARMAGEDDON AND THE ANTICHRIST AND SO ON.
  • 08:33 WE ARE LOOKING AT THE HAPPY NEWS TO COME UP IN THE LIVES OF THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE MESSIAH,
  • 08:39 ARE GOING IN THE RAPTURE AND SO FORTH.
  • 08:41 WELL, THE GATE THAT YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME IN THE EASTERN WALL OF THE TEMPLE IS THE GOLDEN GATE
  • 08:46 OR THE EAST GATE, THE GATE THAT FACES THE MT. OF OLIVES WHERE I'M STANDING
  • 08:50 AND IT IS THE GATE THROUGH WHICH THE KING WILL ENTER
  • 08:53 AND WE THAT ARE WITH HIM AS IT SAYS IN REVELATION,
  • 08:57 AND WHEN WE GO THROUGH THAT GATE, WE ARE REALLY GOING TO CHANGE SOCIETIES
  • 09:01 FROM THE ONE WE'RE IN NOW WHERE CHRISTIANS ARE A MINORITY
  • 09:05 TO A KINGDOM WHERE BELIEVERS WILL BE A VAST MAJORITY,
  • 09:09 IN FACT WILL RUN THE PLACE.
  • 09:10 WE'LL BE THE PRINCES, THE GOVERNORS AS THE SCRIPTURES SAYS AND OF COURSE,
  • 09:14 WITH THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH, JESUS AS THE KING.
  • 09:18 THEN THINK ALSO OF THE NEW JERUSALEM WITH ITS GATES,
  • 09:23 THE PEARLY GATES BEING THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL, 3 ON EACH SIDE MAKING 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 09:34 BUT, ALSO THE FOUNDATION STONES, 12 OF THEM
  • 09:37 AND EACH OF THEM WITH A NAME OF THE APOSTLE, ONE OF THE APOSTLES OF THE LORD.
  • 09:42 SO, YOU HAVE THE CHURCH AND ISRAEL FOREVER INSCRIBED IN THE NEW JERUSALEM
  • 09:48 THAT WILL LAST FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER.
  • 09:52 WHEN WE RETURN, WE'LL SHOW YOU ZOLA'S SPECIAL PRESENTATION ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 09:56 CALLED "UPON THIS ROCK".
  • 09:59 WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  • 11:17 IF YOU'VE NOT BEEN, PLEASE GO.
  • 11:19 IT IS YOUR ETERNAL HOME AND WELL WORTH THE TRIP.
  • 11:22 AND WHAT AN IMPORTANT PLACE.
  • 11:25 ISRAEL IS THE CENTERPIECE OF BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 11:30 JERUSALEM IS THE CENTER OF ISRAEL.
  • 11:34 IN THE CENTER OF JERUSALEM IS WHERE THE BEIT HAMIKDASH STOOD, THE TEMPLE.
  • 11:40 THAT WAS YESTERDAY.
  • 11:41 TODAY IT'S THE HOME OF THE DOME OF THE ROCK, A MUSLIM SHRINE.
  • 11:46 ZOLA DID A TELEVISION SERIES CALLED "UPON THIS ROCK".
  • 11:50 LET'S LOOK WHAT HE HAD TO SAY RIGHT NOW.
  • 11:54 THE BIBLE SITES THIS AS THE RESTING PLACE OF THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE.
  • 11:59 YET THE HISTORY HERE HELD WITHIN ANCIENT STONES OF TIMES PAST,
  • 12:03 HAS MADE THESE 35 ACRES A CENTER OF CONTENTION FOR NEARLY 3000 YEARS.
  • 12:26 THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE TEMPLE HAS CAPTIVATED THE IMAGINATION OF PEOPLE FOR AGES.
  • 12:31 DETAILED MODELS OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT CAN NOW BE FOUND IN ISRAEL,
  • 12:35 ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES.
  • 12:38 RECENTLY A THEME PARK CALLED THE HOLY LAND EXPERIENCE WAS OPENED IN ORLANDO, FL.
  • 12:44 FEATURING A RECONSTRUCTION OF FIRST CENTURY JERUSALEM.
  • 12:47 THIS IS THE DOOR OF THE HOLY PLACE AND INSIDE
  • 12:51 THE HALLOWED KODISH HAKODISHIM, THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 12:54 WHERE GOD DWELLED AMONG HIS PEOPLE ON EARTH.
  • 12:58 ONCE A YEAR THE HIGH PRIEST WOULD GO INTO THAT ROOM,
  • 13:00 MAKE A SACRIFICE AND CONFRONT ALMIGHTY GOD.
  • 13:04 THE NEW TESTAMENT TELLS US THAT THE HANGING CURTAIN, A VERY THICK, HEAVY,
  • 13:09 LIKE A FIRE CURTAIN ON THE STAGE, CURTAIN IN FRONT OF THE HOLY OF HOLIES
  • 13:14 WAS RENT IN TWO FROM TOP TO BOTTOM WHEN THE LORD WAS CRUCIFIED.
  • 13:22 WHEN THE ISRAELI PARATROOPERS LIBERATED THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN 1967,
  • 13:27 DEFENSE MINISTER MOSHE DAYAN MADE A TACTICAL DECISION
  • 13:30 THAT FOR MANY HAS REMAINED A QUANDARY TO THIS DAY.
  • 13:34 HE RELINQUISHED CONTROL OF THE DOME OF THE ROCK
  • 13:37 AND THE SURROUNDING COMPOUND TO THE MUSLIMS.
  • 13:41 TO BE SMART MEANS TO SOMETIMES RESTRAIN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF YOUR RIGHTS
  • 13:46 FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE AND COEXISTENCE.
  • 13:51 THEREFORE WE SAID WE WILL PRAY IN FRONT OF THE WESTERN WALL
  • 13:54 AND WE WILL DELAY THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OUR RIGHTS ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 13:58 FOR A MORE PEACEFUL TIME.
  • 14:00 THE GOLDEN MENORAH FOR THE 3RD TEMPLE IS ON DISPLAY OUTSIDE THE TEMPLE INSTITUTE
  • 14:06 AND HAS BECOME A POPULAR ATTRACTION TO LOCAL ISRAELIS AND TOURISTS ALIKE.
  • 14:11 IT STANDS 7 FEET TALL.
  • 14:14 ALSO ON DISPLAY AT THE INSTITUTE ARE THE PRIEST'S GARMENTS
  • 14:17 AND THE STONES FOR THE BREASTPLATE OF THE HIGH PRIEST.
  • 14:21 COMPUTERS HAVE BEEN USED TO GENERATE THE PLANS FOR VARIOUS ROOMS
  • 14:24 IN THE ACTUAL 3RD TEMPLE STRUCTURE.
  • 14:27 AND THERE WAS GIVEN ME A REED LIKE A ROD AND THE ANGEL STOOD
  • 14:32 SAYING RISE AND MEASURE THE TEMPLE OF GOD AND THE ALTAR AND THEM THAT WORSHIP THEREIN.
  • 14:40 CONTENTION FOR HOLY SITE GROWS DAILY.
  • 14:43 CLEARLY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, THOSE WHO ARE IN TOUCH WITH BIBLICAL PROPHECY
  • 14:48 HAVE THEIR FOCUS CENTERED ON THE HEART OF JERUSALEM AND THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD.
  • 15:30 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 15:32 WELL, CONTINUING OUR 5000 YEAR SAGA OF THE STORY OF THE TEMPLE,
  • 15:37 YOU KNOW IT BEGINS WHEN GOD SUMMONS ABRAHAM TO SACRIFICE ISAAC ON MT. MORIAH
  • 15:42 AND CONTINUES ALL THE WAY TO THE END OF THE MILLENNIAL TEMPLE AT THE END OF THE KINGDOM TO COME
  • 15:48 AND THAT'S HOW LONG A PERIOD THAT IS.
  • 15:50 ABRAHAM BUILT AN ALTAR THERE AND LAID THE WOOD IN ORDER
  • 15:54 AND BOUND ISAAC HIS SON AND LAID HIM ON THE ALTAR UPON THE WOOD.
  • 15:59 AND ABRAHAM STRETCHED FORTH HIS HAND AND TOOK THE KNIFE TO SLAY HIS SON.
  • 16:27 (SOUND OF RAM)
  • 16:31 ABRAHAM DIDN'T HAVE TO USE THIS KNIFE SOME 4000 YEARS AGO HERE IN MT. MORIAH.
  • 16:37 GOD PROVIDED A SUBSTITUTE, A RAM CAUGHT IN THE THICKET BY HIS HORN.
  • 16:42 HE WAS SACRIFICED INSTEAD OF ISAAC AND SO WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE THE HEBREW PEOPLE.
  • 16:48 NOW THERE WAS A VERY IMPORTANT ASPECT.
  • 16:52 YOU WERE NOT SUPPOSED BRING STRANGE FIRE ON THAT ALTAR.
  • 16:57 WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE CONVENIENT TO BRING IN BURNING EMBERS FROM OUTSIDE.
  • 17:03 WHICH IS WHAT THEY DID, BUT IT HAD TO BE FROM A CERTAIN PLACE.
  • 17:06 IT HAD TO BE FROM THE ALTAR OF SACRIFICE.
  • 17:09 I MEAN, IF THEY BROUGHT IT THROUGH THE FRONT GATE, THEY HAD SOME PROBLEMS.
  • 17:13 SOME PEOPLE TRIED.
  • 17:16 THE 2 SONS OF THE FIRST HIGH PRIEST, AARON,
  • 17:21 HIS TWO SONS NADAB AND ABIHU BROUGHT STRANGE FIRE.
  • 17:24 IN LEVITICUS 10. >>IN LEVITICUS 10,
  • 17:27 INTO THIS PLACE AND THEY DIDN'T COME OUT ALIVE EITHER.
  • 17:30 NO.
  • 17:32 THE PLANS TO REBUILD THE TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM ARE ALREADY UNDERWAY.
  • 17:37 THE PLANS TO UNDERMINE WHAT GOD IS DOING IN ISRAEL IS UNDERWAY, AS WELL
  • 17:43 AS FORCES MARSHAL, BENT ON ISRAEL'S DEMISE.
  • 17:47 IS THIS NOT THE CASE, SANDRA?
  • 17:49 THIS IS THE CASE.
  • 17:50 YOU KNOW, ZOLA WAS NOT SHY ABOUT THE POLITICS IN ISRAEL.
  • 17:53 HE THOUGHT THE ROAD MAP WAS HORRIBLE,
  • 17:56 IN FACT HE MADE A PROGRAM, A SERIES OF PROGRAMS CALLED "A ROADMAP TO ARMAGEDDON".
  • 18:01 WE FOLLOWED EXACTLY A PRESIDENT BUSH-TYPE OF AN APPROACH.
  • 18:08 WHEN AMERICA KNEW THAT SADDAM HUSSEIN WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AT A CERTAIN BUILDING IN MACDAD,
  • 18:15 AMERICA USED 4 BOMBS, ONE TON EACH,
  • 18:18 GOING FROM THE ROOF DOWN TO THE BASEMENT
  • 18:21 JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT SADDAM HUSSEIN IS NEUTRALIZED WITH A LOT OF COLLATERAL DAMAGE.
  • 18:30 WE HAVE TRIED TO DO THE SAME THING ONLY WITH MUCH SMALLER BOMBS
  • 18:34 IN ORDER TO REDUCE THE COLLATERAL DAMAGE
  • 18:36 AND MUCH OF THIS ACTION ABSOLUTELY IS A DEFENSIVE ACTION,
  • 18:41 IT IS PROJECTED AS IF IT IS AN OFFENSIVE.
  • 18:44 WE THINK WE HAVE RIGHT TO LIVE TO IN OUR HOMELAND IN THE CRADLE OF JUDAISM.
  • 18:49 IF WE DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE IN BETHLEHEM, IN HEBRON,
  • 18:53 THEY DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT, THE MORAL RIGHT TO LIVE IN TEL AVIV.
  • 18:56 THIS SORT OF FAZING OUT OF ISRAEL, THE MUSLIMS ARE DOING IT,
  • 19:00 THE NETWORKS, AS I SAID ARE DOING IT, CERTAIN BIBLE TEACHERS ARE DOING IT,
  • 19:04 BY MENTIONING THE PALESTINIAN COVENANT WHEN THEY MEAN THE LAND COVENANT, THAT SORT OF THING.
  • 19:09 WHAT THE PALESTINIANS SAY IS THAT THEY ACCEPT THE PATTERN
  • 19:13 OF THE 2 STATE SOLUTION OFFERED BY PRESIDENT BUSH.
  • 19:17 HOW, FIRST ISRAEL WILL PULL OUT ENTIRELY INTO THE PRE-67 BOUNDARIES
  • 19:24 AND THERE WILL BE A PALESTINIAN STATE IN THE WEST BANK IN GAZA.
  • 19:28 THEN THERE WILL BE ANOTHER STATE, BUT INTO THAT STATE
  • 19:32 THEY WILL BRING IN 4.5 MILLION PALESTINIANS
  • 19:35 TOGETHER WITH THEIR 1.2 MILLIONS PALESTINIANS THAT LIVE TODAY IN ISRAEL,
  • 19:41 THEY WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME A MAJORITY.
  • 19:44 SO, THERE WILL BE 2 STATES, ONE A PURE PALESTINIAN STATE
  • 19:47 AND ANOTHER A PALESTINIAN STATE BECAUSE OF THE MAJORITY OF THE ARABS.
  • 19:51 IN OTHER WORDS, THE DEMAND FOR THE RETURN OF THE REFUGEES IS A CODE NAME
  • 19:57 FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 19:59 ZOLA INTERVIEWED MANY, MANY INTERESTING PEOPLE,
  • 20:03 NOT ONLY IN ISRAEL, BUT ALSO IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 20:05 HERE ARE SOME OF THOSE INTERVIEWS.
  • 20:07 THE UNITED STATES IS PERCEIVED AS, IT IS THE ONLY SUPER POWER LEFT IN THE WORLD
  • 20:15 AND THE UNITED STATES,THE PERCEPTION AT LEAST,
  • 20:18 IS THAT IT HAS SIDED SO STRONGLY WITH ISRAEL THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.
  • 20:21 I TEND TO THINK WE HAVEN'T SIDED WITH THEM NEARLY STRONGLY ENOUGH
  • 20:25 NO, I DON'T THINK SO.
  • 20:26 BUT, FROM THE ARAB PERSPECTIVE, THAT IS WHAT THEY SEE.
  • 20:29 BUT, IT'S INTERESTING THAT GOD CLASSIFIES SIN ACCORDING TO INTENT.
  • 20:33 IT'S YOUR MOTIVE.
  • 20:35 IT ISN'T THE PARTICULAR THING YOU'VE DONE THAT MAKES ONE SIN WORSE THAN ANOTHER,
  • 20:40 BUT IT'S YOUR MOTIVE.
  • 20:42 THAT'S VERY INTERESTING.
  • 20:43 IT WAS WRONG AND YOU DID IT ANYWAY,
  • 20:44 IT DOESN'T MATTER IF IT'S A SPOKEN WORD OR IF IT'S MURDERING SOMEONE, IF IT'S WILLFUL,
  • 20:51 IT'S IN THE SAME CLASSIFICATION AS FAR AS GOD IS CONCERNED.
  • 20:56 REMEMBER EVERY TIME THE JEWISH PEOPLE HEAR THE SOUND OF THE SHOFAR,
  • 20:58 IT REMINDS THEM THAT THEY ARE GOD COVENANT PEOPLE,
  • 21:02 BECAUSE WHEN WE RECEIVED THE COVENANT ON MT. SINAI,
  • 21:04 THERE WAS A GREAT BLITZ FROM HEAVEN AND SO WHEN THE JEWS HEAR THAT,
  • 21:10 IT REMINDS THEM THEY ARE GOD COVENANT PEOPLE.
  • 21:14 NOW, WHEN THE BELIEVERS HEAR THAT,
  • 21:16 THEY SHOULD KNOW THERE WILL BE ANOTHER BLOW FROM HEAVEN AND THE DEAD SHALL RISE
  • 21:20 AND I HOPE THIS IS THE HEART CRY OF EVERY BELIEVER ON THAT DAY TO BE FOUND FAITHFUL,
  • 21:27 WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT, ENTER TO THE JOY OF YOUR MASTER.
  • 21:32 AMEN.
  • 21:34 SO, WE SEE IN THE WORLD NOW IN THIS HOUR, ANOTHER RISE OF ANTI-SEMITISM COMING
  • 21:38 AND THAT'S WHY I FEEL IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE ORGANIZATIONS
  • 21:42 WITH CONTINUING THE MESSAGE OF THE SCHINDLER FAMILY
  • 21:46 OR ORGANIZATIONS THAT WILL STAND WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 21:50 SO THIS TIME WE ARE NOT SILENT AND THAT THIS TIME WE CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE
  • 21:56 AND BRING HONOR AS CHRISTIANS TO THE NAME OF OUR MESSIAH AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
  • 22:02 MAYIM CHAIM, THAT'S WHAT IT IS IN HEBREW.
  • 22:05 IN ENGLISH, IT'S "LIVING WATERS".
  • 22:07 ZOLA DID A NUMBER OF TEACHING COMPONENT AROUND BODIES OF WATERS,
  • 22:11 AS WE'LL SEE IN THIS SET WHERE WE LOOK AT ZOLA AND "LIVING WATERS".
  • 22:26 THE RIVER NILE, WHOSE WATER CARRIED THE SHIPS OF KINGS AND PHARAOHS,
  • 22:31 BORE, TOO AN INFANT NAMED MOSES.
  • 22:35 THE BANKS OF THE JORDAN BECKON THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.
  • 22:40 GALILEE, WITNESS THE MIRACULOUS "PEACE BE STILL".
  • 22:49 THE GREAT SEA, THE MEDITERRANEAN,
  • 22:51 SERVED IN THE MISSION OF PAUL TO EPHESUS AND CORINTH.
  • 22:56 THE AEGEAN CARRIES JOHN EXILED TO THE ISLE OF PATMOS.
  • 23:01 FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION, THE WATERS OF THE BIBLE LANDS.
  • 23:15 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 23:16 WELL, HERE'S OUR "LIVING WATERS" SERIES THAT I HAVE BEEN PROMISING YOU.
  • 23:19 THIS ONE IS VERY COMPLETE, GOES THROUGH VIRTUALLY ALL OF THE BIBLE LANDS.
  • 23:23 AND MOSES STRETCHED OUT HIS HAND OVER THE SEA AND THE LORD CAUSED THE SEA TO GO BACK
  • 23:30 AND THE WATERS WERE DIVIDED AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
  • 23:34 RAN INTO THE MIDST OF THE SEA UPON THE DRY GROUND.
  • 23:39 THE LAND OF THE RED SEA, THE LAND OF PHARAOH, THE LAND OF THE EXODUS.
  • 23:44 GOD DID ONE OF HIS MIGHTY MIRACLES, PARTED THE BODY OF WATER
  • 23:48 AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CAME OUT ON DRY LAND.
  • 23:50 EVERYBODY KNOWS THE STORY, BUT TO KNOW ALL OF EGYPT'S STORY
  • 23:54 IS TO HAVE TO UNDERSTAND FULLY 6000 YEARS OF HISTORY.
  • 23:59 THIS NATION IS OLD.
  • 24:00 THIS IS THE ISLE OF RHODES.
  • 24:03 BEHIND ME YOU CAN SEE 1000 YEARS OF HISTORY.
  • 24:05 THERE WERE MORE LIKE 3000 YEARS WHEN THE COLOSSUS STOOD HERE AT THE BEGINNING OF RECORDED TIME.
  • 24:12 THE STATUE THROUGH THE LEGS OF WHICH BIG SHIPS CAME ON THESE WATERS.
  • 24:17 THAT'S GONE NOW, BUT THE CRUSADERS LEFT THEIR MARK HERE.
  • 24:20 YOU CAN SEE THEIR CONSTRUCTION IN THE LIGHTHOUSE
  • 24:23 AND IN THE GRAND MASTER'S PALACE, AN AMAZING BUILDING BEHIND ME.
  • 24:28 WHEN THE WATERS RAINS DOWN THERE ON THE MOUNTAINS AT MT. HERMON,
  • 24:31 ROLLS DOWN THE MOUNTAIN TO FORM THE NORTH JORDAN RIVER,
  • 24:35 A DEEP GORGE THAT LEADS TO THE NORTH PART OF THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 24:38 AND SO THIS FRESH WATER COMES DOWN INTO THE SEA OF GALILEE
  • 24:42 AND THEN IT GOES DOWN THE JORDAN RIVER, SOUTH JORDAN,
  • 24:47 LEAVES THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE SEA OF GALILEE AND GOES DOWN THROUGH THE LAND.
  • 24:51 AS IT GOES, IT PICKS UP THE MINERALS FROM THE DESERT SANDS
  • 24:54 AND IT BECOMES THICKER AND MORE CLOUDY AND BRINGING THE MINERALS DOWN HERE TO THE DEAD SEA,
  • 25:00 FINALLY ARRIVING IN THE DEAD SEA, THE WATER DIES IN EFFECT.
  • 25:05 ALL FISH, ALL ANIMAL LIFE THAT WAS AROUND THE WATER,
  • 25:08 ALL THE INSECTS ARE GONE AND IT BRINGS ONLY MINERALS HERE
  • 25:11 AND THEN THE EVAPORATION AGAIN DEPOSITING THE MINERAL AROUND THE SHORE.
