Caption transcript for Revelation Extra: “Perspectives of the End” (3/6)

  • 00:48 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:50 WE'RE GOING TO TALK TONIGHT ABOUT ISRAELIS WHO CULTIVATE RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:54 WITH THE CHRISTIANS, ESPECIALLY AMERICAN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:58 THEY'RE SURE NOT CULTIVATING RELATIONSHIPS WITH PRESBYTERIANS CHURCH OF CHRIST OR ANY OF THAT
  • 01:03 BUT, WITH TRUE BELIEVERS, THEY'RE IMPRESSED BECAUSE WE'VE SUPPORTED ISRAEL.
  • 01:07 WE'VE BEEN OUTSPOKEN ABOUT IT.
  • 01:09 WE'VE TRAVELED THERE.
  • 01:11 WE'VE GIVEN THEM WISHES AND PRAYERS AND LOVE AND THEY FEEL IT.
  • 01:15 SO, THEY FORMED UP DIFFERENT COMMITTEES AND ONE OF THESE IS THE CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE CAUCUS,
  • 01:21 WHICH IS A BUNCH OF CABINET MINISTERS.
  • 01:24 I MEAN, THESE ARE POWERFUL MEN, THEY ARE MEMBERS OF THE ISRAELI KNESSET.
  • 01:28 THEYRE INTERESTED IN IT, THEY WANT TO CULTIVATE THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 01:31 AND ON OUR PROGRAM, WE'RE GOING TO INTERVIEW YURI SHTERN,
  • 01:36 WHO IS ONE OF THE HEADS OF THIS AND GOING TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE UP TO.
  • 01:41 WE ARE NOT LOOKING, WE ARE A CHRISTIAN ALLIES CAUCUS,
  • 01:44 WE ARE NOT CULTIVATING OUR RELATIONS WITH THOSE
  • 01:49 WHO SUPPORT MY PARTY POLITICAL AGENDA, NO WAY.
  • 01:55 WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE BASIC SUPPORT FOR THE EXISTENCE,
  • 01:59 FOR THE LEGITIMACY OF THE JEWISH STATE EXISTENCE IN THE HOLY LAND.
  • 02:06 ALL THE OTHER ISSUES CAN BE DISCUSSED AND THERE COULD BE A VARIETY OF OPINIONS,
  • 02:12 WE HAVE IT WITHIN OUR CAUCUS AS I TOLD THE DIFFERENT PART, DIFFERENT POLITICAL VIEWS,
  • 02:17 THERE ARE DIFFERENT CHURCHES AND DIFFERENT OPINIONS WITHIN CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.
  • 02:22 WE ONLY ASK FOR ONE THING, DO YOU AGREE THAT THE EXISTENCE OF THE JEWISH STATE
  • 02:31 IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL HAS A SPIRITUAL, MORAL, HISTORICAL MEANING THAT CANNOT BE DENIED
  • 02:41 BY ANY POLITICAL FLUCTUATION OR AND CHANGE OF VOTE IN THE UNITED NATIONS CENTER?
  • 02:49 FOR CENTURIES MOST OF RANK AND FILE PEOPLE DID NOT READ THE BIBLE
  • 02:55 OR THEY READ IT THROUGH THE EYES AND LIPS OF THEIR PASTORS, OF THERE CLERICS,
  • 03:02 THROUGH THE INTERPRETATIONS OF DIFFERENT FATHERS OF THE CHURCH,
  • 03:06 WHO WERE POLITICIANS OF THEIR TIME AND WHO DISTANCED, AS MUCH AS THEY COULD,
  • 03:12 CHRISTIANITY FROM JUDAISM.
  • 03:15 IT HAS CHANGED NOW.
  • 03:17 PEOPLE ARE READING THE BOOK AS IT IS.
  • 03:20 THEY HAVE NO SINGLE AUTHORITY TO GIVE THEM AN INTERPRETATION OF WHAT IT IS ABOUT.
  • 03:25 THEY READ IT BY THEIR OWN EYES AND UNDERSTAND BY THEIR OWN MINDS
  • 03:30 AND TWO GREAT AND VERY DIFFERENT EVENTS HAPPENED IN THE 20TH CENTURY.
  • 03:36 ONE WAS THE HOLOCAUST THAT SHOWED THAT KILLING THE JEWS IS BASICALLY KILLING THE GOD
  • 03:44 AND KILLING THE GOD IN PEOPLE'S LIVES AND HEARTS.
  • 03:49 AND THEN THE REESTABLISHMENT OF THE JEWISH STATE.
  • 03:55 I GATHERED IT SHOCKED MANY PEOPLE IN CHRISTIAN WORLD, OR CHRISTIAN WORLDS,
  • 04:02 AND THEN THE POPE IN 1965, EXACTLY 40 YEARS AGO ANNOUNCED
  • 04:09 THAT THE JEWS CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR KILLING JESUS
  • 04:15 AND THAT JEWS ARE BASICALLY THE ELDER BROTHERS OF THE CHRISTIANITY.
  • 04:21 SO, THE RELATIONSHIP STARTED CHANGING WITHIN CATHOLIC WORLD
  • 04:26 AND MUCH FASTER AND MUCH DEEPER IN EVANGELICAL CHURCHES.
  • 04:32 THEY BELIEVE IN THE SAME BOOK.
  • 04:34 THEY GOT THE SAME CONCEPT OF MORAL VALUES, 10 COMMANDMENTS,
  • 04:40 THE MONOTHEISTIC IDEA AS IT IS PRESENTED IN THE BIBLE.
  • 04:45 THIS CREATES A COMMON GROUND THAT IS EXTREMELY STRONG POTENTIALLY.
  • 04:52 WE HAVE TO USE THAT.
  • 04:54 THAT'S, IN A SENSE, MY ATTITUDE TOWARD THAT AND TO MY SEARCH FOR SUPPORT AS AN ISRAELI AND A JEW.
  • 05:03 ON A PERSONAL SIDE, I WAS BORN IN THE SOVIET UNION
  • 05:09 AND I WAS AMONG THOSE PEOPLE WHO WERE UNHAPPY WITH THE COMMUNIST REGIME
  • 05:16 SINCE SOME STAGE OF MY LIFE AND I FOUND JEWS AND CHRISTIANS PERSECUTED BY THE AUTHORITIES
  • 05:26 IN THE SAME WAY AND CHRISTIANITY FOR ME IS NOT A FOREIGN,
  • 05:32 FOURTH PART OF THE ESTABLISHMENT SOMETIMES ANTAGONISTIC, YOU KNOW, FOREIGN.
  • 05:38 IT WAS THE TRUE CHRISTIANS, THE TRUE BELIEVERS WE'RE ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE BARRICADES
  • 05:44 AND THEY SUFFERED AND THEY FOUGHT WITH US.
  • 05:47 I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT EXPERIENCE WAS DURING THE YEARS OF TERRORIST WAR,
  • 05:52 SO CALLED "INTIFADA" WHEN THE TOURIST DISAPPEARED AND POLITICAL VISITORS DISAPPEARED.
  • 06:02 PEOPLE WERE AFRAID OF COMING HERE AND AFRAID OF SHOWING THEIR SUPPORT TO ISRAEL.
  • 06:06 IN AMONG THOSE FEW TOURISTS, WE SPEAK ABOUT FEW,
  • 06:11 DOZENS OF THOUSANDS OF PUBLIC FIGURES MAYBE DOZENS OF PEOPLE,
  • 06:16 BUT AMONG THOSE WHO DID COME, CHRISTIANS WERE VERY, VERY PRONOUNCED.
  • 06:21 THEIR PRESENCE THERE, THE COURAGE, READINESS TO SHOW THEIR SUPPORT IN THE HARDEST TIMES,
  • 06:32 THIS, I THINK CONVINCED ISRAELI PUBLIC MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE
  • 06:36 AND THE ATTITUDE, PSYCHOLOGICALLY CHANGED.
  • 06:41 THERE IS MORE PEOPLE NOW WHO BELIEVE THAT THIS LOVE CAN BE TRUE
  • 06:45 AND THEIR SUPPORT CAN BE AIMED AT WHAT IT SPEAKS ABOUT AND NOT, DOESN'T HAVE A SECOND PLAN.
  • 06:52 WE SEE MORE AND MORE OF THIS SUPPORT OF THIS SYMPATHY,
  • 06:58 OF THIS READINESS TO FIGHT FOR ISRAEL AMONG CHRISTIANS IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.
  • 07:06 IT'S VERY CLEAR IN AMERICA, BUT IT IS GROWING VERY STRONGLY IN THE FAR EAST, IN KOREA,
  • 07:11 IN PHILIPPINES, IN SINGAPORE, IN CHINA AMONG NEW CHRISTIAN NATIONS.
  • 07:17 IT BECOMES MORE AND MORE PRONOUNCED IN LATIN AMERICA, IN AFRICA.
  • 07:21 CHRISTIANS NEED US AND WE NEED THEM AND YOU CAN FEEL IT.

  • 08:28 BEAUTIFUL FOR SITUATION, THE JOY OF THE WHOLE EARTH.
  • 08:33 SURELY THE LORD HAS BLESSED THEE AND MADE HIS FACE SHINE UPON THEE.
  • 08:39 COME TO ZION WITH SONGS AND EVERLASTING JOY.
  • 08:45 COME, WORSHIP IN THE SPLENDOR OF HIS HOLINESS.
  • 08:51 WELL, YOU KNOW WE TAKE A LOT OF EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS OVER TO ISRAEL, OBVIOUSLY.
  • 08:56 THAT'S WHO WANTS TO SEE THE PLACE AND YOU SHOULD SEE THE PLACE.
  • 08:58 IT'S YOUR KINGDOM.
  • 09:00 YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE THERE A THOUSAND YEARS.
  • 09:02 GOODNESS, WE TAKE PEOPLE FOR A 10 DAY TOUR, THEY READ THE BROCHURE FOR 2 WEEKS.
  • 09:05 IF YOU'RE GOING TO GO FOR A THOUSAND YEARS, COME AND SEE THE REAL PLACE.
  • 09:11 NOW, THEY'RE REESTABLISHED THE SANHEDRIN, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT.
  • 09:14 THERE IS A BODY OF LAWMAKERS WHO, ANYWAY, ARE CALLED THE SANHEDRIN
  • 09:20 AND THEY MAKE POLICY AND THEY MAKE DECISIONS
  • 09:22 AND IT'S LIKE SOMETHING COMING BACK OUT OF THE 1ST CENTURY,
  • 09:25 WHICH IS THE LAST TIME THEY REALLY WERE MEETING AND THEY HAVE A LOT TO SAY
  • 09:29 AND KIND OF A LOT OF CLOUT.
  • 09:31 THEY'VE IMPRESSED A LOT OF PEOPLE.
  • 09:33 NOW, WE HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS IN JERUSALEM EVERY DAY.
  • 09:37 WHO HOLDS THE LAND THERE, THE OCCUPATION AND SO ON?
  • 09:47 I READ THAT TODAY MUSLIMS ARE GOING BY THE PERMISSION OF THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT
  • 09:53 TO MAKE NEW EXCAVATIONS IN THE MOUNT OF TEMPLE.
  • 09:58 THOSE ARE GREAT, GREAT TROUBLES AND THOSE TROUBLES COME BECAUSE
  • 10:03 THE GOVERNMENT DON'T FEEL THEY SHOULD REPRESENT THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 10:09 SHE REPRESENTS, WE DID NOT DENY THE STATE OF ISRAEL, BUT NOT THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 10:15 SO, WE WANT TO AROUSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT DEMAND
  • 10:20 TO MAKE THE SANHEDRIN MORE AND MORE A RECOGNIZED INSTITUTION.
  • 10:28 THERE WERE MANY SURVEYS IN ACADEMY HOW MANY PEOPLE KEEPING YOM KIPPUR
  • 10:35 AND HOW MANY PEOPLE... AND NOT EATING KEEP PESACH, NOT EATING MATZAH AND SO ON.
  • 10:40 IT'S ALSO COME TO THE SAME THINGS THAT 70% OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN ERETZ ISRAEL
  • 10:48 HAVE SOME OBLIGATIONS TO THE TRADITION.
  • 10:55 BUT, WHAT COMES IN THE PARLIAMENT OR IN THE GOVERNMENT IS VISE VERSA.
  • 11:00 IT'S THE OPPOSITE AND THIS IS A GREAT RIDDLE THAT WE HAVE TO HELP TO SOLVE IT
  • 11:10 BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY TOXICS IN THE SECULAR JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 11:20 AND EVEN THE RELIGIOUS JEWISH PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE DENYING THEIR NATIONALITY, THEIR RIGHTS
  • 11:27 AND THIS IS AN URGE AS IT COMES MORE AND MORE LUNATIC LIKE SO MANY PEOPLE FROM GUSH KATIF.
  • 11:39 THIS IS A SYMBOL OF DISENGAGEMENT FROM THE BIBLE, FROM THE LAND,
  • 11:42 EVEN FROM THE LANGUAGE, FROM ZIONISM AND SO ON.
  • 11:51 SO, ESTABLISHING THE SANHEDRIN IS A MUST.
  • 11:55 EVERY DAY PEOPLE COME TO THE SANHEDRIN TO ANSWERS MANY QUESTIONS
  • 12:04 THAT RAISE IN PERSONAL LIFE OR IN NATIONAL LIFE AND SO ON.
  • 12:11 THEREFORE I HOPE THAT IT FINALLY WOULD COME MORE AND MORE A SIGNIFICANT INSTITUTION.
  • 12:20 WELL, THE NEW SANHEDRIN IS ATTEMPTING TO HAVE AUTHORITY IN ISRAEL AND MAKE POLICIES.
  • 12:25 AND WOULD YOU BELIEVE THERE ARE PEOPLE TRYING TO SET UP THE MONARCHY OF KING DAVID,
  • 12:32 WHICH IN EZEKIEL 37 YOU READ ABOUT IT.
  • 12:35 DAVID, MY SERVANT WILL RULE OVER THEM.
  • 12:38 HILLEL WEISS IS ONE OF THE PEOPLE REAL INTERESTED IN THIS PROJECT.
  • 12:42 HE WANTS TO BRING BACK THE ISRAEL OF THE BIBLE.
  • 12:45 HE WANTS TO BRING BACK A KING AND HAVE AN ORDERLY COUNTRY WITH THE SANHEDRIN HELPING OUT.
  • 12:52 I HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT THINK THEY ARE FROM THE DYNASTY OF DAVID THE KING.
  • 12:58 BUT, IT'S NOT TO CHOOSE THE QUEEN OF BEAUTY,
  • 13:04 IT'S A VERY SERIOUS QUESTION AND THEREFORE I THINK THAT 'TIL WE HAVE ANOTHER PROPHET,
  • 13:15 WE CANNOT DECIDE FROM HEAVEN WHO IS THE PROCESS OF THE KING OF DAVID.
  • 13:24 THERE ARE AT LEAST 6 GREAT FAMILIES OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE
  • 13:32 THAT ARE SAYING THEY ARE THE POSSESSORS, THEY ARE COMING FROM THE DYNASTY OF KING DAVID,
  • 13:38 BUT WE CAN MAKE A LOTTERY AND WE CANNOT, WHO HAS THE GREATEST IQ.
  • 13:45 WE SEE MANY TIMES A TAXI DRIVER HAS MORE SENSE THAN THE PROFESSOR,
  • 13:51 THEREFORE, I DON'T THINK THAT MEANWHILE THIS IS THE SYSTEM.
  • 13:57 I THINK THAT CHRISTIANS THAT WANT THE SECOND COMING,
  • 14:02 WANT TO SEE THE TEMPLE IN PLACE, THEN THE KING AND SO AND SO.
  • 14:07 WE ALSO WANT TO SEE THEM AND PEOPLE SAY THAT WE ALSO MAKE A JUMP, A BIG JUMP TO ARMAGEDDON.
  • 14:19 WE DON'T WANT TO PUT THE WORLD IN A CATASTROPHE AND APOCALYPTIC CATASTROPHE.
  • 14:28 WE WANT TO PUT THE WORLD IN PEACE, NOT IN GREAT WARS.
  • 14:34 THEREFORE, WHEN THE TIME OF ERECTING THE TEMPLE WILL COME,
  • 14:39 I'M SURE THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL BE FAIR TO THE AUTHORITY
  • 14:46 AND I HOPE AND I THINK IT WILL BE THE SANHEDRIN
  • 14:49 BECAUSE MORE AND MORE GREAT RABBIS LIKE RABBI....
  • 14:55 AND OTHER WILL SEE IT'S NOT A MONSTER, IT IS NOT A STRANGE THING AND SO ON,
  • 15:03 IT WILL GET RECOGNITION OF ALL THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 15:09 YOU KNOW, HILLEL WEISS SAID SOMETHING ELSE IN THIS INTERVIEW, FASCINATING
  • 15:14 ABOUT REBUILDING THE TEMPLE AND PEOPLE HAVE SAID THAT, BUT HE'S REALLY SERIOUS
  • 15:18 AND IT WOULD TAKE THE SANHEDRIN AND THESE OTHER AUTHORITIES
  • 15:22 A MATTER OF HOURS TO SET IT UP, I MEAN IT.
  • 15:24 JEWISH WORSHIP DOESN'T REQUIRE SOLOMON'S OR HEROD'S TEMPLE.
  • 15:28 IT REALLY JUST REQUIRES A SACRIFICE ALTAR
  • 15:32 AND A PLACE TO MAKE ONE SACRIFICE, THAT'S WHAT IT'S ABOUT.
  • 15:37 WELL, MALCOLM HEDDING IS THE HEAD OF THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY
  • 15:42 AND WE'VE TALKED TO HIM BEFORE AND I THINK YOU'VE PROBABLY HEARD HIM
  • 15:46 AND HE'S REALLY INTERESTED IN THIS PROJECT.
  • 15:48 HERE HE IS.
  • 15:50 I THINK THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL AS WE KNOW HAS 2 PARTS
  • 15:56 ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF EZEKIEL AND JEREMIAH AND ELSEWHERE
  • 16:00 IT HAS A PHYSICAL PART FOLLOWED BY A SPIRITUAL PART.
  • 16:04 WE'VE WITNESSED SINCE 1948 AND EVEN BEFORE,
  • 16:09 THE PHYSICAL RESTORATION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THEIR LAND OF CANAAN,
  • 16:15 WHICH HAS BEEN PUNCTUATED BY REMARKABLE EVENTS THAT A BIBLICAL BASIS.
  • 16:22 BUT, THE SECOND PART OF THAT RECOVERY IS CERTAINLY A SPIRITUAL RECOVERY
  • 16:27 AND I THINK THAT SINCE 1988, I WOULD ACTUALLY PUT IT AT THE 40 YEAR MARK
  • 16:35 WHERE ISRAEL WENT THROUGH A MAJOR TRANSITION, THE INTIFADA, THE SECOND INTIFADA.
  • 16:42 THAT'S ALL JEW AND HOLY LAND PROBLEMS IF YOU WANT TO PUT IT THAT WAY,
  • 16:48 STAY AWAY FROM THE LAND.
  • 16:50 BUT, THE PEOPLE WHO CONTINUE TO COME IN THE THOUSANDS WERE THE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS
  • 16:57 AND THAT SPARKED THE ATTENTION OF KNESSET MEMBERS, YURI SHTERN,
  • 17:06 AND THEY FELT THE TIME HAD COME THAT THE KNESSET OF ISRAEL
  • 17:11 NEEDED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE GOOD WORK THAT THESE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS HAD BEEN DOING
  • 17:16 AND THAT THEY DESERVED RECOGNITION FOR THE 20 OR MORE YEARS
  • 17:22 THAT THEY HAD PIONEERED JEWISH CHRISTIAN RELATIONSHIPS
  • 17:28 AND THE REPROSHMA BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE CHRISTIAN WORLD
  • 17:33 AND ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY,
  • 17:36 WERE OF COURSE, THE PIONEERS OF THIS WHOLE NEW DEVELOPMENT OF CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS
  • 17:42 IF YOU WANT TO CALL THEM THAT, EMERGING IN ISRAEL.
  • 17:45 THAT LED THEN, TO MEETING, WHICH WERE NOT KNESSET NAMED, NOT KNESSET CAUCUS NAMED,
  • 17:53 BUT, WE HAD MEETINGS IN THE KNESSET WITH RELEVANT PLAYERS
  • 17:57 AND OUT OF THAT WAS FOUNDED THE CHRISTIAN ALLIES CAUCUS.
  • 18:01 THE CAUCUS WAS INAUGURATED BY THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE AND HE RECOGNIZED PUBLICLY
  • 18:08 THAT THESE WERE THE BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS, THEY WERE THE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS
  • 18:13 AND THEY WERE ALL UNITED BY ONE THING, BY A BIBLICAL BELIEF THAT THE RESTORATION OF ISRAEL
  • 18:21 WAS NOT A POLITICAL ACCIDENT, BUT THE FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S OWN WORD AND PROMISE
  • 18:25 TO HIS ANCIENT PEOPLE THAT HE FIRST GAVE TO ABRAHAM.
  • 18:30 SO, I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING INVOLVED IN THE WHOLE DISCUSSION PROCESS,
  • 18:36 THE NEGOTIATION PROCESS THAT LED TO IT AND I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO SEE IT HAPPEN.
  • 18:42 NOW, IT IS FAIRLY HISTORIC, I HAVE TO SAY THAT.
  • 18:45 BECAUSE HOW MANY PARLIAMENTS OR GOVERNMENTS OR CONGRESSES OF THE WORLD
  • 18:50 HAVE MOVED OFFICIALLY TO ESTABLISH AN OFFICIAL CAUCUS
  • 18:56 THAT REPRESENTS THE WORK OF EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS TO THEIR INSTITUTIONS.
  • 19:02 AND ISN'T IT QUITE INCREDIBLE THAT THE JEWISH STATE DOES SUCH A THING.
  • 19:09 MK'S, MEMBERS OF KNESSET ARE SO INTERESTED IN THIS DEVELOPMENT
  • 19:14 THAT MANY OF THEM TURN UP TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON AND HOW DID THIS HAPPEN.
  • 19:18 AND IT IS A BIPARTISAN CAUCUS.
  • 19:21 WE HAVE MEMBERS OF ALL THE POLITICAL PARTIES IN ISRAEL ATTENDING THE CAUCUS.
  • 19:26 THIS AGAIN, I THINK IS INDICATIVE OF THE RADICAL CHANGE IN CLIMATE
  • 19:31 THAT HAS EMERGED BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.
  • 19:35 FURTHERMORE, IT IS FUELED BY TWO THINGS.
  • 19:40 FIRST OF ALL, THE ONSET OF A NEW VICIOUS SECULAR HUMANISM
  • 19:44 AND YOU FEEL IT IN THIS COUNTRY EVEN THAT SEEKS TO TEAR DOWN
  • 19:48 EVERYTHING THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUE SYSTEM.
  • 19:53 IT'S EVEN MORE EVIDENT IN REGIONS LIKE EUROPE WHERE EVEN THE NAME OF GOD IS REMOVED NOW
  • 20:01 FROM THE CONSTITUTION OR THE PROPOSED CONSTITUTION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION.
  • 20:07 SECONDLY, THIS ALLIANCE IS FUELED BY THE EMERGENCE OF MILITANT ISLAM
  • 20:14 THAT SEEKS ACTUALLY TO ATTACK AND TEAR DOWN THE JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUE SYSTEM.
  • 20:19 THE KNESSET ALLIES CAUCUS AS YOU WELL KNOW HAS EVOLVED INTO A GLOBAL OUTREACH
  • 20:26 TO THE CHRISTIAN WORLD ON BEHALF OF THIS KNESSET CAUCUS IN THE KNESSET OF ISRAEL.
  • 20:32 I THINK THERE'S BEEN A LONGING WITHIN THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 20:38 FOR THE SPIRITUAL CONTENT OF THEIR HERITAGE
  • 20:44 AND THEREFORE YOU HAVE THE EMERGENCE OF THESE GROUPS,
  • 20:48 FIRST OF ALL LIKE THE TEMPLE INSTITUTE THAT DESIRES AND LONGS
  • 20:54 FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE THIRD TEMPLE.
  • 20:58 AND COUPLED WITH THAT OF COURSE, IS THE DESIRE FOR A SPIRITUAL COVERING
  • 21:03 OTHER THAN A DEMOCRATIC PARLIAMENT AS WE HAVE IT IN THE KNESSET
  • 21:08 AND OTHER WESTERN-STYLED DEMOCRACIES.
  • 21:11 CERTAINLY, I SEE THESE EVENTS AND OTHERS RELATED TO THEM
  • 21:16 AS THE FULFILLMENT OF AN INNER YEARNING IN THE NATION OF ISRAEL,
  • 21:23 CERTAINLY IN THE MORE RELIGIOUS SEGMENT OF THE COUNTRY TO FIND THAT SPIRITUAL RECOVERY,
  • 21:31 WHICH FOR THEM IN THEIR THINKING WOULD INCLUDE THE RESTORATION OF TEMPLE WORSHIP AND SACRIFICE
  • 21:38 AND THE RESTORATION OF A TYPE OF SPIRITUAL COVERING IN TERMS OF THE SANHEDRIN.
  • 21:44 THIS IS EVIDENCE OF A TRANSITION, OF AN INNER DESIRE AND LONGING IN THE BODY CORPORATE,
  • 21:53 THE SOUL OF THE BODY CORPORATE OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL
  • 21:56 FOR A MORE FULFILLING SPIRITUAL REALITY, THAT'S IT.

  • 24:01 I REFERRED EARLIER TO EZEKIEL 37,
  • 24:05 A FASCINATING CHAPTER THAT BEGINS WITH THE DRY BONES VISION
  • 24:08 AND CONTINUES ON THROUGH THE 2 STICKS IN THE HAND,
  • 24:11 WHICH BY THE WAY, GOD INTERPRETS,
  • 24:13 YOU DON'T HAVE TO RUN AROUND WITH ALL THESE STORIES OF WHAT THEY REALLY MEAN.
  • 24:17 GOD SAYS THEY MEAN THE NORTH COUNTRY, THAT IS ISRAEL, AND THE SOUTH COUNTRY, JUDAH,
  • 24:22 WILL BE MADE INTO ONE NATION AND HE SAYS THAT LITERALLY.
  • 24:58 AND GOD'S INTERPRETATION GOES ON WITH REFERENCE
  • 25:01 TO THIS IDEA OF REESTABLISHING A DAVIDIC MONARCHY.
  • 25:05 HE SAYS IN VERSE 24.
  • 25:07 AND DAVID MY SERVANT SHALL BE KING OVER THEM AND THEY ALL SHALL HAVE ONE SERVANT
  • 25:12 THEY SHALL ALSO WALK IN MY JUDGEMENTS AND OBSERVE MY STATUTES TO DO THEM.
  • 25:16 YOU KNOW, I ONCE ASKED DR. MCCALL, OUR SENIOR THEOLOGIAN OF THIS MINISTRY,
  • 25:22 DOES THAT MEAN THE LORD ON THE THRONE IN THE KINGDOM IN JERUSALEM
  • 25:27 SINCE HE IS THE SON OF DAVID?
  • 25:30 AND TOM SAID, NO, WHY WOULDN'T IT JUST BE DAVID, HE'LL BE THERE WON'T HE?
  • 25:34 YOU KIND OF FORGET THAT WITHIN THE KINGDOM, IT'S NOT JUST YOU AND PEOPLE IN YOUR CHURCH
  • 25:39 OR THE PEOPLE IN YOUR TOWN, IT'S EVERYBODY FROM THE GARDEN, IT'S ADAM AND EVE,
  • 25:43 IT'S NOAH, IT'S ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB, IT'S THE PROPHETS.
  • 25:46 YOU'LL SEE THEM GOING UP AND DOWN THE STREET AND DAVID WILL CERTAINLY BE THERE
  • 25:52 AND I THINK HE'D MAKE A FIRST CLASS KING.
  • 25:55 HE CERTAINLY DID WHEN HE WAS HERE AND HE'LL BE BACK.
  • 25:59 SO, HERE GOD SAYS I'M GOING TO JOIN THE NORTH AND SOUTH, DON'T WORRY ABOUT THAT
  • 26:05 AND I'M GOING TO CLEANSE THEM AND TAKE AWAY THEIR DEFILEMENTS
  • 26:09 AND I'M GOING TO MAKE A STRONG WORTHY RELIGIOUS NATION
  • 26:14 AND I'LL PUT ONE KING OVER THEM AND HE NAMES DAVID, MY SERVANT
  • 26:19 AND I GUESS THAT'S WHAT'LL HAPPEN.
  • 26:21 THE LORD, OF COURSE, WILL PRESIDE,
  • 26:23 BUT TO HAVE A KING FOR DAILY BUSINESS AND SO FORTH, WHY NOT KING DAVID.
  • 26:28 IT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.
  • 26:31 SOLOMON I'M SURE WILL BE THERE, TOO, HIS SON
  • 26:34 AND WHAT A WONDERFUL TIME WE'RE GOING TO HAVE FOR A THOUSAND PEACEFUL YEARS.
  • 26:39 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
