Caption transcript for Daniel and the Last Days’ Battle for Planet Earth: “The Battle Royal,” Part 1 (7/8)

  • 00:42 ANGER IN GAZA.
  • 00:44 WAR IN LEBANON.
  • 00:46 RUMBLINGS IN IRAN.
  • 00:48 AS THE WORLD FOCUSES ON THE MIDEAST QUAGMIRE,
  • 00:52 ZOLA LEVITT MINISTRIES PRESENTS,
  • 01:01 A HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 01:04 JEFFREY SEIF HERE
  • 01:05 WITH MY FRIEND SANDRA LEVITT.
  • 01:07 SHALOM. WELCOME BACK.
  • 01:08 WE ARE STUDYING DANIEL.
  • 01:10 JEFF, IT JUST SEEMS LIKE IT GETS WORSE AND WORSE AND WORSE.
  • 01:13 YES AND I SAY "FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS" TODAY! >>AMEN
  • 01:17 WE'RE LOOKING AT GOOD NEWS WHEN WE'RE LOOKING AT THE BIBLE.
  • 01:21 BUT THE REASON WHY THE GOOD NEWS IS SO GOOD IS BECAUSE THE BAD NEWS IS SO BAD.
  • 01:25 BUT WE HAVE OUR ROADMAP TO PEACE.
  • 01:27 YES AND WE HAVE A ROADMAP TO PEACE THAT LEADS US THROUGH WAR.
  • 01:33 I SEE HERE A PAST EDITION OF "NEWSWEEK"
  • 01:37 TALKS ABOUT THE NEXT JIHADIST ARGUING IN PART THAT
  • 01:39 "IS AMERICA DRIVING YOUNG ARAB BOYS TO WAR?" SOME CONJECTURE.
  • 01:44 I THINK THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT IMPULSES THAT DRIVE PEOPLE TO WAR.
  • 01:49 AND DOWN THAT ROAD WE GO TODAY AS WE SEE A WORLD COMING UNGLUED.
  • 01:56 EVEN IN DANIEL'S TIME,
  • 01:57 HE KNEW, PROPHESIED, THEN, THE MIDDLE AND THEN THE FUTURE,
  • 02:02 PROPHESIED WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 02:04 YES AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
  • 02:06 WELL, THE WORLD GOES BAD, IT LOOKS BAD.
  • 02:11 WE NEED A MIRACLE! >>THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.
  • 02:14 ISRAEL IS SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES HELL BENT ON HER DEMISE.
  • 02:18 GOD HELP US!
  • 02:20 AND ISRAEL GEARS UP FOR WHAT LOOKS LIKE THE END,
  • 02:24 AND THEN, BAD NEWS NOTWITHSTANDING, THE LORD EMERGES. >>AMEN.AMEN.
  • 02:29 LET'S CONSIDER THAT WORLD HERE NOW IN DANIEL, THE LAST DAYS' BATTLE FOR PLANET EARTH.
  • 02:52 LITTLE DID THEY KNOW
  • 02:54 AS THEY MADE READY FOR THE BATTLE TO COME
  • 02:56 THAT THE BATTLE THAT THEY ANTICIPATED
  • 02:59 WAS PREDICTED THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
  • 03:23 WHY DO THE NATIONS RAGE?
  • 03:25 THAT'S WHAT THE PSALMIST WANTED TO KNOW.
  • 03:27 AND RAGE THE WORLD HAS AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 03:31 HERE AT ARMAGEDDON.
  • 03:33 THERE'S 25 LAYERS OF CIVILIZATIONS THAT BUILT FORTS HERE ON THIS HILL.
  • 03:39 WE'RE GOING TO CONSIDER THE STORY OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 03:41 AS WE LOOK AT DANIEL AND THE LAST DAYS' BATTLE FOR PLANET EARTH.
  • 03:46 FOLLOW ME NOW TO THE HILL OF MEGIDDO -
  • 03:48 ARMAGEDDON.
  • 04:04 HE WAS CONFUSED.
  • 04:07 IN CHAPTER 12, VERSE 8
  • 04:08 DANIEL SAYS,
  • 04:09 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:20 HE WAS PERPLEXED, COULDN'T GET HIS ARMS AROUND IT.
  • 04:23 HE'S LOOKING AT SOMETHING, HE SAYS,
  • 04:31 IN RESPONSE TO WHICH THE LORD SAYS,
  • 04:32 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:39 HE SAYS THE WORDS ARE SEALED,
  • 04:41 SEALED,
  • 04:43 SEALED UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END.
  • 04:50 BEHIND ME HERE, THIS GREAT EXPANSE,
  • 04:54 I'M STANDING ON TOP OF ARMAGEDDON,
  • 04:58 A WORD IN ENGLISH THAT CONGERS UP STORIES OF ANNIHILATION
  • 05:04 AND BRINGS TO THE SURFACE FEARS THAT LIE DORMANT OF A WORLD GONE BAD.
  • 05:10 IT'S A PLACE WHERE NAPOLEON ONCE STOOD AND HE SAID,
  • 05:14 "MY WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO HAVE A WAR."
  • 05:20 MOMENTS AGO JETS WERE STREAMING THROUGH THE SKY,
  • 05:23 SCREAMING OVER HEAD ALMOST AT THE SOUND BARRIER I'D IMAGINE.
  • 05:27 JUST MANEUVERS I SUPPOSE.
  • 05:30 BUT THEN AGAIN THIS IS A STRANGE PLACE WHERE WARS ARE FOUGHT,
  • 05:34 THEY'VE BEEN FOUGHT FOR MANY YEARS AND THEY'LL BE FOUGHT AGAIN IN THE END OF DAYS.
  • 05:40 OH, THERE'S AN EXPRESSION THAT'S USED OVER AND AGAIN IN THE HEBREW BIBLE
  • 05:47 IN CHAPTER 12, VERSE 13
  • 05:49 DANIEL IS TOLD,
  • 06:01 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:08 THAT THEME WAS PICKED UP EARLIER IN THE 11TH CHAPTER.
  • 06:11 WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 40,
  • 06:12 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:20 AND IN VERSES 40 AND ON IN THE 11TH CHAPTER
  • 06:24 DANIEL IS GIVEN WORDS ABOUT WHAT WILL UNFOLD ON PLANET EARTH JUST BEFORE THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 06:36 HE'S TOLD THAT THIS ANTI-MESSIAH, THE ANTI-CHRIST,
  • 06:40 DRIVEN BY RAGE AND BENT ON CONQUEST AND WANTING TO PLUNDER, EGYPT PARTICULARLY,
  • 06:46 AMASSES HIS FORCES FROM THE BEAUTEOUS LAND HERE
  • 06:50 AND HE MAKES HIS WAY WESTWARD.
  • 06:53 INTO NORTH AFRICA HE GOES.
  • 06:55 WE'RE TOLD IN THE TEXT IN VERSE 43
  • 06:59 THAT HE HAS LIBYA AND ETHIOPIA IN TOW.
  • 07:04 AND LIKE A PYTHON HE'S MINDED TO WRAP HIMSELF AROUND EGYPT.
  • 07:10 BUT SOMETHING HAPPENS.
  • 07:13 WITH EGYPT IN HIS SIGHTS WE'RE TOLD THAT HE'S ALARMED BY SOMETHING.
  • 07:18 WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO STARTLE AN ANTI-CHRIST?
  • 07:21 WELL, WE'RE TOLD HERE IN THE HEBREW BIBLE CHAPTER 11, VERSE 44 WE'RE TOLD,
  • 07:27 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 07:41 AGAIN, WHAT DOES IT TAKES TO ALARM AN ANTI-CHRIST, SOMEONE THAT HAS A MASSIVE FORCE
  • 07:47 THAT'S PLUNDERING NORTHERN AFRICA TO SATISFY HIS BENT FOR CONQUEST?
  • 07:55 WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO STOP HIM IN HIS TRACKS?
  • 07:59 WELL, WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 44,
  • 08:13 HE IS BENT ON JUST HAVING THE WORLD SWEPT UP.
  • 08:19 WHAT'S GOT HIM TICKED?
  • 08:22 WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 45 THAT
  • 08:25 AS HE REARRANGES HIS STRATEGY,
  • 08:28 HE WHO HAD EGYPT IN HIS SIGHTS
  • 08:31 NOW SETS HIS SIGHTS TO THE HOLY LAND
  • 08:33 AND WE'RE TOLD HERE IN VERSE 45
  • 08:41 (THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA NOT FAR FROM HERE)
  • 08:49 AND THEN WE'RE TOLD IN THE TEXT
  • 08:51 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 08:57 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 09:03 WHAT HAPPENS HERE? WE'RE TOLD THAT BENT AS HE WAS ON TAKING OUT EGYPT
  • 09:09 HE'S CONCERNED FROM NEWS FROM THE EAST THAT GETS HIS ATTENTION.
  • 09:14 EXPOSITORS WORK THE QUESTION,
  • 09:17 "WHAT IS IT IN THE EAST PARTICULARLY THAT HAS HIM DISCONCERTED?
  • 09:21 DOES HE HEAR NEWS OF JEWS THAT ARE BREAKING RANKS WITH HIM
  • 09:25 AND RESISTING HIS OVERTURES IN ISRAEL?
  • 09:29 INDEED THAT'S QUITE POSSIBLE, LIKELY, IN FACT.
  • 09:33 BUT FOR HIM TO COMPLETELY CHANGE HIS STRATEGY
  • 09:37 AND TO GATHER ALL OF HIS FORCES AND BRING THEM HERE,
  • 09:42 ARGUABLY, IT WOULD TAKE SOMETHING BIGGER THAN THAT.
  • 09:44 WHAT'S THE NEWS FROM THE EAST THAT CAUSES HIM TO REARRANGE HIS STRATEGY?
  • 09:51 NEW TESTAMENT READERS ARE SOMEWHAT FAMILIAR WITH THAT QUESTION.
  • 09:55 AND THAT'S A QUESTION THAT WE'LL ATTEND TO WHEN WE COME BACK IN A MOMENT
  • 09:58 AND WE CONTINUE TO WORK ON THE BACKGROUND OF THE STORY OF THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.
  • 10:13 I ALWAYS SAY EVERY WEEK, "THAT'S ISRAEL, IT'S THE WAY WE SEE IT."
  • 10:17 ONE OF THE PLACES WE GO TO IS MEGIDDO, HAR-MEGIDDO, THE HEBREW "HAR-MEGIDDO" OR "ARMAGEDDON".
  • 10:25 WE STAND AT THE VERY TOP OF MEGIDDO AND LOOK DOWN IN THIS JEZREEL VALLEY.
  • 10:29 JEZREEL VALLEY GOES ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE PORT OF HAIFA.
  • 10:33 YOU CAN SEE WHERE MASSIVE ARMIES WOULD COME IN.
  • 10:37 REVELATION CHAPTER 14, VERSE 20 TALKS ABOUT THE BATTLE
  • 10:41 AND THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO READ TO YOU IN CHAPTER 14, VERSE 20,
  • 10:55 THE JEZREEL VALLEY IS 15 MILES BY 30 MILES,
  • 10:59 ABOUT 350 SQUARE MILES.
  • 11:02 DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH BLOOD IT WOULD TAKE
  • 11:04 TO COME TO A HORSE'S BRIDLE?
  • 11:06 WHEN NAPOLEON WAS VIEWING - AND JEFF HAD SPOKEN ABOUT NAPOLEON.
  • 11:11 WHEN JEFF WAS TALKING ABOUT NAPOLEON - NAPOLEON LOOKED DOWN ON THIS JEZREEL VALLEY AND SAID,
  • 11:16 "THIS IS A PLACE FOR A BATTLE" AND A BATTLE ROYAL IS WHAT WE'RE GONNA HAVE.
  • 11:21 YES, WE ARE.
  • 11:23 AND ISN'T IT AMAZING THAT THE PROPHET SAW IT?
  • 11:26 DANIEL WRITES FROM MODERN, WHAT IS TODAY IRAN. >>CLEARLY, CLEARLY.
  • 11:32 HE'S FROM THAT PART OF THE WORLD
  • 11:34 AND HE SEES AND EZEKIEL SEES THAT PERSIA, OR IRAN,
  • 11:37 IS DRAWN INTO SOME CONFEDERATION OF PEOPLES WITH RUSSIA
  • 11:42 FOR THIS GREAT CLIMACTIC ARMAGEDDON BATTLE.
  • 11:45 IT IS THE BATTLE TO END ALL BATTLES.
  • 11:48 BACK AFTER THIS.
  • 11:58 WE HAVE WHAT JOHN REFERRED TO AS
  • 12:01 "THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON" DESCRIBED.
  • 12:05 IT'S PRECIPITATED IN VERSE 12 WITH,
  • 12:18 I WAS JUST IN TURKEY A FEW DAYS AGO
  • 12:20 AND THEREIN I WAS PARTICIPATING IN DISCUSSIONS.
  • 12:24 THERE'S A BIG PROJECT TO DAM UP THE EUPHRATES RIVER IN ORDER TO BETTER MANAGE THE WATER
  • 12:29 AND FACILITATE MORE AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT AND THERE'S ANGST.
  • 12:34 AND THE TURKS AND NEIGHBORING PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED IN TENSION,
  • 12:38 DISCUSSION OVER THE NET RESULT OF ALL OF THIS.
  • 12:42 WELL, HERE WHAT HAPPENS IS THERE SOME DRYING UP OF THE WATERS
  • 12:46 AND THIS THEN WILL PRECIPITATE THESE MASSES
  • 12:53 THAT WERE AMASSED JUST EAST OF THE EUPHRATES
  • 12:56 TO SWEEP INTO THE REGION.
  • 12:58 YOU HAVE HERE FORCES TO THE EAST OF THE EUPHRATES WHO ARE GOING TO MOVE WEST.
  • 13:02 NOW REMEMBER IN THE PREVIOUS SECTION WE CONSIDERED IN THE DANIEL TEXT
  • 13:05 HOW THE ANTI-CHRIST IS ON AN NORTH AFRICAN CAMPAIGN AND HE'S ALARMED,
  • 13:11 HE'S DISCONCERTED BY NEWS FROM THE NORTH AND NEWS FROM THE EAST.
  • 13:15 THERE'S A VERY COGENT ARGUMENT THAT WHAT HIS PRIMARY CONCERN IS WHAT'S BEING DESCRIBED HERE.
  • 13:21 AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE THESE MASSIVE ARMIES FROM NORTHERN AFRICA,
  • 13:27 FROM AND AROUND ISRAEL PROPER AND THEN FROM THE EAST,
  • 13:31 PERSIAN PEOPLES PARTICULARLY, THEY'RE ALL GATHERING TOGETHER, ARABS AND OTHERS,
  • 13:36 FOR THIS GREAT CONFLAGRATION, GREAT AS IN TERMS OF MAGNITUDE.
  • 13:39 IT'S NOT THAT IT'S A WONDERFUL STORY.
  • 13:42 JOHN GOES ON TO SAY THAT HE SEES THESE UNCLEAN SPIRITS COME OUT.
  • 13:47 IN VERSE 13, IN VERSE 14 HE SAYS
  • 14:07 HERE I AM AT ARMAGEDDON.
  • 14:12 BEHIND ME IS THIS GREAT VALLEY.
  • 14:15 REALLY, IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOPOGRAPHY OF THE REGION
  • 14:18 IT'S REALLY JUST ABOUT THE ONLY PLACE WHERE YOU CAN STAGE MASSIVE FORCES.
  • 14:23 HERE THERE'S WATER IN ABUNDANCE
  • 14:25 AND THERE'S FOOD STAPLES AND THERE'S A PLACE TO PITCH YOUR TENT
  • 14:28 WHICH YOU DON'T FIND IN THE ROCKY TERRAIN IN AND AROUND THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 14:33 YOU DON'T FIND THE CLIMATE, YOU DON'T FIND THE WATER, YOU DON'T FIND THE AREA.
  • 14:38 THIS IS THE PLACE.
  • 14:40 IT'S ONE OF THE REASONS, BY THE WAY, WHERE THERE'S, I THINK, 25 LAYERS OF EXCAVATION
  • 14:46 THAT TELL OF DIFFERENT PEOPLES THAT BUILT FORTS.
  • 14:49 AND HERE I AM AGAIN AT ARMAGEDDON SITTING ON TOP OF A
  • 14:52 HORSE TROUGH HERE WHERE HORSES WOULD BE BEDDED DOWN,
  • 14:56 WHERE THEY WOULD BE STORED AND THEY COULD THEN HAVE WATER BROUGHT
  • 15:01 AND OTHER THINGS FOR THEM TO EAT, IN FACT.
  • 15:04 IF YOU'LL LOOK WITH ME IN CHAPTER 9,
  • 15:06 HEREIN MENTIONED IN THE
  • 15:08 ARMAGEDDON STORY ARE HORSES.
  • 15:10 WE'RE TOLD - THE LANGUAGE HERE IS VERY FANTASTIC
  • 15:14 AS IS THE 16TH CHAPTER THAT I'M GOING TO BACK AGAIN IN A MINUTE.
  • 15:36 THAT NUMBER WAS SO VAST JOHN ENVISIONS 200 MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS THE EUPHRATES.
  • 15:44 THEY ARE SWARMING INTO THIS REGION AND THE NUMBER IS SO VAST, YOU GOTTA CONSIDER THIS,
  • 15:50 THAT HE NEVER HEARD OF THAT NUMBER OF PEOPLE BEFORE.
  • 15:54 HE EVEN HAS TO SORT OF APOLOGIZE FOR IT BY SAYING AFTERWARDS,
  • 15:57 "I HEARD THE NUMBER OF THEM", HE SAYS, "200 MILLION", PAUSE,
  • 16:01 "HEY LOOK, I HEARD THAT NUMBER", AS IF HE DIDN'T BELIEVE IT WHEN HE HEARD IT.
  • 16:05 BUT HE SEES THESE MASSIVE HOARDS OF PEOPLE MAKING THEIR WAY HERE AT THE TIME OF THE END.
  • 16:14 IN CHAPTER 16 HE DESCRIBES
  • 16:16 THAT THEY'RE BEING DRIVEN ABOUT
  • 16:18 BY SPIRITS OF DEMONS
  • 16:20 THAT ARE DRIVING THESE KINGS TO GATHER TOGETHER
  • 16:24 THESE MASSIVE FORCES FROM ALL OVER TO THIS PLACE.
  • 16:28 AND THEN IN VERSE 15, JESUS
  • 16:31 SPEAKS DIRECTLY INTO THE STORY.
  • 16:36 IN FACT, WE HAVEN'T HEARD JESUS SPEAK DIRECTLY SINCE HIS MESSAGES TO THE 7 CHURCHES.
  • 16:42 IF YOU LOOK IN REVELATION CHAPTER 4, ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE END OF THE STORY,
  • 16:49 RIGHT AT THE END HE SAYS, "I'M COMING SOON" - "BE READY".
  • 16:52 BUT BEYOND THE BEGINNING PASSAGES AND THEN THE FEW EXHORTATIONS AT THE END,
  • 16:57 THE ONE PLACE WHERE HE SPEAKS INTO THE SITUATION IS RIGHT HERE WHERE HE SAYS IN VERSE 15,
  • 17:13 IN THE WORLD THAT WE LIVE IN RIGHT NOW
  • 17:15 WITH MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD BREATHING THREATS,
  • 17:19 HE REPRESENTS THE NATION STATE
  • 17:23 AMASSED JUST EAST OF THE EUPHRATES,
  • 17:26 WHO'S SWEARING ON A STACK OF KORANS THAT HE'S GOING TO COME AND DRIVE ISRAEL INTO THE SEA.
  • 17:32 HE'S TELLING US JUST LIKE HITLER SAID YEARS AGO,
  • 17:35 HE HAS HIS EYE ON THE DESTRUCTION OF THESE PEOPLE.
  • 17:37 WHEN YOU HEAR AN EXHORTATION OF THE LORD SAYING, "LISTEN, BE READY, BE READY."
  • 17:42 I CAN'T HELP BUT THINK THAT THIS REALLY SPEAKS TO A GENERATION SUCH AS OURS.
  • 17:47 "BE READY", HE SAYS.
  • 17:49 TO BE FOLLOWED WITH, "AND THEY GATHERED THEM TOGETHER TO THE PLACE IN HEBREW CALLED.."
  • 17:53 "ARMAGEDDON."
  • 18:09 OH, IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE HERE IN THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 18:12 SANDRA LEVITT AND I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO JOIN US FOR A TRIP.
  • 18:15 BUS LOAD OF PILGRIMS ARE HERE
  • 18:17 AND 6 PASTORS CAME WITH US
  • 18:20 THAT ARE BEHIND US HERE BAPTIZING INDIVIDUALS.
  • 18:24 WHY NOT YOU SOMETIME?
  • 18:26 JOIN SANDRA LEVITT AND I FOR THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME HERE IN ISRAEL
  • 18:30 AND BE BAPTIZED IN THE JORDAN RIVER.
  • 18:43 I'VE BEEN TO ISRAEL MANY TIMES. I JUST CAN'T TELL YOU HOW WARMED I WAS IN THE LAST TRIP
  • 18:47 WHEN I WAS THERE. ARMAGEDDON OF ALL PLACES.
  • 18:50 IT WAS LIKE "WOW" !
  • 18:52 IT REALLY GETS TO YOU.
  • 18:53 THESE SITES REALLY GET TO YOU.
  • 18:55 THIS REALLY IS ISRAEL.
  • 18:57 IT'S REALLY THE TRUTH OF THE BIBLE.
  • 18:59 THESE ARE THE SIGHTS. THE SEA OF GALILEE, JERUSALEM, ARMAGEDDON.THERE IT IS.
  • 19:04 I REMEMBER DRIVING AROUND THERE IN THE JEEP,
  • 19:06 I WAS THINKING THAT SO MANY BATTLES HAVE BEEN FOUGHT HERE
  • 19:09 AND THERE'S A GREAT ONE TO COME.
  • 19:11 RECENTLY WROTE A BOOK, BY THE WAY,
  • 19:12 "THE IRANIAN MENACE IN JEWISH HISTORY AND PROPHECY".
  • 19:15 YOU MAY WISH TO ACQUIRE IT THROUGH OUR MINISTRY.
  • 19:18 BUT YOU CAN JUST READ THE BOOK REVELATION
  • 19:22 AND HEAR FROM ACROSS THE EUPHRATES COMES THIS ARMAGEDDON BATTLE.
  • 19:25 AND YOU KNOW THAT ARMAGEDDON IS THE PLACE
  • 19:27 FOR THIS MAJOR CONFLAGRATION, THIS MAJOR WAR.
  • 19:31 AND IT'S SOMETHING I LIKE PEOPLE TO SEE.
  • 19:33 I LIKE THEM TO SEE IT BECAUSE IT REALLY GIVES THEM A PICTURE OF REALITY.
  • 19:37 IT'S NOT JUST THIS MADE-UP NAME.
  • 19:39 ARMAGEDDON IS NOT A MADE-UP NAME.
  • 19:41 BUT UNLESS YOU REALLY SEE IT, IT'S KIND OF JUST OUT THERE.
  • 19:44 ALL THE BIBLE SITES GALVANIZE UNDERSTANDING
  • 19:46 AND THEY CRYSTALLIZE FAITH AND ENCOURAGE AND INSPIRE.
  • 19:50 IT'S GOOD. IT'S ALL GOOD. I LOVE IT.
  • 19:52 TOMMY ICE IS A FRIEND OF THE MINISTRY.
  • 19:55 (Sandra Speaking) FOUNDED THE PRE-TRIB CENTER
  • 19:58 AND HE AND ZOLA LOVED TO TALK PROPHECY.
  • 20:00 WOULD TALK FOR HOURS ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 20:03 WHO'S THE ENEMY?WHO DO WE NEED TO WATCH?WHO'S COMING UP? WHAT COUNTRY'S COMING UP?
  • 20:08 I KNOW YOU'LL ENJOY THIS INTERVIEW WITH ZOLA AND TOMMY ICE.
  • 20:12 THERE IS NO PLACE
  • 20:13 IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD
  • 20:15 THAT ISLAM CURRENTLY CONTROLS
  • 20:17 THAT WASN'T TAKEN OVER BY FORCE,
  • 20:19 INCLUDING SAUDI ARABIA.
  • 20:20 THAT'S VERY INTERESTING.
  • 20:21 EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT BECAME ISLAMIC
  • 20:23 IS BECOMING ISLAMIC THROUGH THE SWORD. YOU GO TO THE SUDAN,
  • 20:29 YOU GO TO OTHER PLACES IN AFRICA,
  • 20:32 YOU GO TO THE PHILIPPINES AND MALAYSIA.
  • 20:35 HOW ARE THEY TAKING OVER THERE?
  • 20:36 EVEN IN CERTAIN PARTS OF MEXICO,
  • 20:38 I UNDERSTAND THAT THEY HAVE AN ISLAMIC VILLAGE,
  • 20:41 THEY GO ON A RAIDING PARTY TO THE CHRISTIAN VILLAGE OR THE NEXT VILLAGE OVER
  • 20:45 AND THEY KILL 25 OR 30 PEOPLE AND TERRORIZE THEM
  • 20:48 AND THE WORD IS PUT OUT THAT YOU NEED TO CONVERT TO ISLAM.
  • 20:53 WELL, THEY SEE HOW MANY CONVERT TO ISLAM
  • 20:55 AND THEN A LITTLE TIME LATER THEY GO AND WIPE OUT THE VILLAGE.
  • 20:58 THAT'S HOW YOU HAD THIS CREEP OF ISLAM THAT'S BEEN GOING ON.
  • 21:03 AND YOU HAVE THE SAME SITUATION IN INDIA AND PAKISTAN.
  • 21:09 YOU HAVE KASHMIR AND ALL THIS KIND OF STUFF
  • 21:11 AND THE INDIANS AT SOME POINT STOOD UP TO THEM.
  • 21:15 OTHERWISE, THEY'RE GOING TO
  • 21:17 COME AND WIPE YOU OUT
  • 21:19 AND TAKE YOU OVER.
  • 21:21 AND THIS IS HISTORICALLY HOW ISLAM HAS SPREAD.
  • 21:23 NOT TO MENTION THE EVENTS IN THE 7TH CENTURY WHEN ISLAM CAME ON THE SCENE,
  • 21:28 HOW MUHAMMAD LOST OUT IN MECCA
  • 21:32 AND HE WENT TO MEDINA AND THEN CAME BACK AND HAD A "HOODNA"
  • 21:37 AND HE CAME BACK AND KILLED THE LARGELY JEWISH COMMUNITY
  • 21:41 IN MECCA, IS MY UNDERSTANDING.
  • 21:42 A TEMPORARY CEASE FIRE
  • 21:44 FOR THE PURPOSE OF RE-ARMING LIKE THE PALESTINIANS KEEP DOING.
  • 21:46 AND THEN WHEN HE DIED A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTED TO MOVE AWAY FROM ISLAM
  • 21:51 BUT ONE OF HIS RELATIVES SAID "NO" AND HE PUT THEM ALL UNDER THE SWORD AGAIN.
  • 21:55 AND THIS IS THE WAY IT'S ALWAYS BEEN.
  • 21:58 I MEAN, DO YOU THINK THE SPANISH INVITED THEM IN IN THE MIDDLE AGES?
  • 22:03 SAID, "COME ON OVER HERE TO SPAIN", OR THE DUTCH EVEN?
  • 22:06 NO.THEY SPREAD BY THE SWORD
  • 22:09 AND THAT'S WHY THEY HAVE THE CRESCENT MOON IN THE SWORD,
  • 22:12 IN A LOT OF THEIR FLAGS,
  • 22:13 AND THEY THINK IT'S A VIRTUE.
  • 22:15 (Zola Speaking) IN SAUDI ARABIA THEIR SYMBOL IS TWO CROSSED SWORDS.
  • 22:26 ♪(piano playing)♪
  • 22:48 ♪(orchestra playing)♪
  • 23:05 I REALLY NEVER GET TIRED OF LISTENING TO ZOLA'S MUSIC.
  • 23:07 HE REALLY WROTE FROM HIS HEART.
  • 23:09 HE WOULD ALSO WRITE ACCORDING TO WHAT WAS GOING ON,
  • 23:12 SOMETIMES IN THE TIMES THAT WE WERE LIVING IN.
  • 23:15 IF IT WAS A BATTLE OR IF IT WAS TO BE WITH ISRAEL,
  • 23:19 HE WOULD WRITE MUSIC THAT REALLY REFLECTED HIS THOUGHTS ON ISRAEL.
  • 23:23 JEFF, I REALLY APPRECIATE THE TEACHING ON DANIEL.
  • 23:26 IT'S GETTING KIND OF TOWARD THE END. WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NOW?
  • 23:29 WELL, WE ARE PUTTING OUR LANDING GEAR DOWN, KINDA, SORTA.
  • 23:31 PROGRAM NUMBER 7 WITH AN 8 PART SERIES.
  • 23:34 I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY ZOLA WOULD GET EXCITED.
  • 23:37 GOODNESS, YOU LOOK AT THE WORLD AND YOU LOOK AT THE WORD,
  • 23:39 YOU BEGIN TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER.
  • 23:41 A LOT OF MINISTERS DON'T DO THAT.
  • 23:42 THEY'RE NOT INTERESTED IN THE TIMES.
  • 23:44 "IT'S NOT FOR ME."
  • 23:45 "I'M NOT INTERESTED IN THAT",
  • 23:47 "I JUST NEED TO DO 'FEEL GOOD' THINGS."
  • 23:50 RIGHT.AND IN DANIEL CHAPTER 12, VERSE 4, DANIEL IS TOLD,
  • 24:02 IT'S INTERESTING TO SAY "SHUT UP THE WORDS UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END."
  • 24:05 IT MAY WELL BE THAT IT'S NOT UNTIL THE END WHEN THIS STUFF STARTS TO MAKE SENSE.
  • 24:09 BUT AREN'T WE SEEING IT MAKE SENSE?
  • 24:12 CLOSER AND CLOSER THE KNOWLEDGE HAS INCREASED EXPONENTIALLY.
  • 24:16 I DON'T THINK I CAN EVEN TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES.
  • 24:19 RIGHT.KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORLD IS JUST INCREASING RAPIDLY. >>RIGHT,RIGHT.
  • 24:22 AS IS AN UNDERSTANDING OF UNFOLDING EVENTS IN THE WORLD IN THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 24:27 AND GOODNESS, DANIEL SEEMS TO BE COMING ALIVE.
  • 24:30 RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES.
  • 24:32 I LIKE DANIEL, WHAT IT SAYS,
  • 24:40 THEY'RE BEING PURIFIED.
  • 24:42 THEY'VE GONE INTO THE TRIBULATION AS UNBELIEVERS
  • 24:45 BUT THEY WILL BE REFINED.
  • 24:46 THEY WILL BE PURIFIED.
  • 24:47 BUT THE WICKED WILL CONTINUE TO BE WICKED,
  • 24:51 NOTHING CHANGES.
  • 24:52 NOTHING CHANGES IN THE TRIBULATION.
  • 24:54 GOODNESS AND BAD ALWAYS.
  • 25:02 YEAH, THE WAY I PERCEIVE, WE GO INTO THE TRIBULATION PERIOD,
  • 25:05 SOME PEOPLE COME TO FAITH. >>RIGHT.
  • 25:07 AND THEY BECOME RIGHTEOUS,
  • 25:09 BUT THE WICKED, THEIR WICKEDNESS JUST ESCALATES
  • 25:11 AND THEY BRING THE PRESSURE TO BEAR ON THOSE RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE.
  • 25:13 ABSOLUTELY, THE THREE AND A HALF YEARS,
  • 25:15 THE POINT IT REALLY GOES DOWN.
  • 25:18 YES IT DOES.
  • 25:20 NOW, THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHOSE LIFE MIGHT BE GOING DOWN RIGHT NOW.
  • 25:24 AND IF YOU'LL TAKE A MOMENT WHILE THINKING ABOUT THE TEXT
  • 25:27 TALKING ABOUT BEING PURIFIED AND REFINED, LET ME SAY THERE'S AN OFFER ON THE TABLE FOR YOU.
  • 25:34 WHAT DO I MEAN BY THAT?
  • 25:35 SIN LEAVES A RED STAIN ON A GARMENT AND THERE'S NO FULLER'S BLEACH TO GET THAT OUT.
  • 25:42 I WANT YOU TO KNOW THERE'S A WAY TO BE RADICALLY TRANSFORMED.
  • 25:46 THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT BEING "BORN AGAIN".
  • 25:49 I LIKE TO SAY, "IF BEING BORN HASN'T BEEN ALL THAT IT'S BEEN CRACKED UP TO BE,"
  • 25:53 "TRY BEING BORN ANEW."
  • 25:55 THERE IS A NEW OFFER ON THE TABLE SINCE CALVARY
  • 25:57 THAT WOMEN AND MEN CAN REPENT OF THEIR SINS.
  • 26:00 THEY CAN ASK JESUS, THE MESSIAH, YESHUA TO COME INTO THEIR HEARTS,
  • 26:05 THEY CAN BE BORN ANEW AND REMADE.
  • 26:07 AND YOU NEED ONLY TO PRAY AND REACH UP TO HEAVEN AND ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU.
  • 26:12 AND THERE'S SO MUCH THAT'S AVAILABLE TO YOU, AND THEN BY VIRUTE OF YOUR SO DOING
  • 26:16 YOU CAN BE SPIRITED AWAY AND NOT HAVE TO EXPERIENCE THIS WORLD
  • 26:20 THAT'S CASCADING IN THE MISERIES DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD.
  • 26:25 OH, IF YOU WOULD ONLY RESPOND NOW AND MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH DESTINY
  • 26:29 AND GET RIGHT WITH GOD THROUGH JESUS.
  • 26:32 AMEN.AND AS YOU GO,
  • 26:34 "SHA' ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM",
  • 26:36 PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
