Series: “The Dark Prince”
When the Devil Has His Day
Dr. Jeffrey Seif takes readers through Bible texts that speak about the devil. Introductory in nature, The Dark Prince gives individuals a behind-the-scenes look at Evil’s workings at the ragged edge of human history, and its ultimate uprooting when Christ returns.
Episode: “Satan in Biblical History”
This program pays attention to biblical history’s bookends: the paradise lost story in Genesis, and the paradise restored story in Revelation. The lessons illustrating Satan’s rise and demise should encourage people to position themselves on the right side of the battle line.

Caption transcript for The Dark Prince: “Satan in Biblical History” (2/10)

  • 00:38 HOW YOU HAVE FALLEN FROM HEAVEN LUCIFER, SON OF THE MORNING,
  • 00:42 YOU SHALL BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL TO THE DEPTHS OF THE PIT
  • 00:47 AND ALL WHO GAZE UPON YOU WILL WONDER,
  • 00:50 "IS THIS THE MAN THAT MADE THE NATIONS TREMBLE?"
  • 00:59 WHEN THE DEVIL HAS HIS DAY
  • 01:04 A HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 01:07 JEFFREY SEIF HERE AND PLEASED AM I TO WELCOME YOU
  • 01:10 TO ANOTHER ADDITION OF ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS
  • 01:14 WE'RE ENTERING INTO A TIME MACHINE AND JOURNEYING BACK TO THE DAWN OF THE BIBLICAL DRAMA
  • 01:21 WHEN SIN MADE ITS ENTRANCE ONTO THE STAGE OF THE HUMAN DRAMA.
  • 01:26 IT'S A TOUGH STORY.
  • 01:28 MY GOOD FRIEND PAUL WILBUR IS GOING TO BE HERE TO HELP SHARE IT WITH US
  • 01:33 BUT OFF WE GO TO EDEN TO LOOK AT THE BIBLICAL STORY.
  • 01:57 AND THE LORD GOD PLANTED A GARDEN EASTWARD IN EDEN
  • 02:01 AND OUT OF THE GROUND MADE THE LORD GOD TO GROW EVERY TREE THAT IS PLEASANT TO THE SIGHT AND GOOD FOR FOOD.
  • 02:08 AND GOD SAID, "OF EVERY TREE OF THE GARDEN THOU MAYEST FREELY EAT"
  • 02:14 "BUT OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL THOU SHALL NOT EAT OF IT,"
  • 02:19 "FOR IN THE DAY THAT THOU EATEST THEREOF THOU SHALL SURELY DIE."
  • 02:25 EVER SO FAR AWAY AND YET EVER SO NEAR IN THE DARK AGELESS ABYSS
  • 02:33 A FOREBODING VOICE COUNTERS AND BECKONS...
  • 02:36 "TAKE...EAT."
  • 02:52 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 03:05 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 03:11 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 03:18 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 03:32 ...AND WITH THAT QUESTION OPENED UP THE DRAMA OF THE AGES
  • 03:39 THAT'S PLAYED OUT ON ALL THE BIBLICAL PAGES
  • 03:44 WHEN EVE AND ADAM WERE VISITED BY THIS NEFARIOUS CREATURE AND SHE AND HE AND THEY
  • 03:54 WERE ENTICED TO EAT THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT AND THE REST IS HISTORY.
  • 04:00 WELL LET'S FOLLOW HIS STORY.
  • 04:05 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:13 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:17 "NO, NO..."
  • 04:20 "GOD DIDN'T SAY THAT I CAN'T EAT OF ALL OF THE FRUIT OF THE GARDEN."
  • 04:24 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:36 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:41 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 04:51 "WHAT AUDACITY!"
  • 04:54 "YOU'RE KIDDING ME...IS THAT WHAT HE SAID?"
  • 04:59 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:08 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:12 "HAH...YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DIE"
  • 05:16 "LADY LET ME TELL YOU THE REAL NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS."
  • 05:21 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:27 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:37 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:43 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 05:50 "LADY HE'S HOLDING YOU BACK,"
  • 05:52 "HE'S JEALOUS, HE'S CONNING YOU"
  • 05:55 "HE DOESN'T WANT THE COMPETITION"
  • 05:58 "HE DOESN'T WANT YOU IN HIS FACE"
  • 06:00 "BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHEN YOU EAT HE'S FINISHED..."
  • 06:05 BECAUSE..."
  • 06:07 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:10 "BECAUSE YOUR GOING TO BECOME WISE"
  • 06:12 "AND BE THE BETTER TO KNOW GOOD FROM EVIL."
  • 06:15 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:27 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:36 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:44 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 06:51 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 07:46 AND SO THE GREAT DECEIVER, THE WICKED TEMPTER STAKES HIS FIRST CLAIM ON PLANET EARTH.
  • 07:55 ON IN THE SHADOWS HE SCHEMES AND PREPARES FOR MORE.
  • 08:01 IN GENESIS CHAPTER 1, VERSE 26 IT SAYS,
  • 08:04 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 08:15 AND SO IT WAS THAT HUMANKIND WAS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.
  • 08:20 THAT'S THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 08:23 THE BAD NEWS, HOWEVER, IS THAT THE RACE GOT BESTED BY THE DARKER SIDE OF OUR OWN NATURE.
  • 08:32 THE ACQUISITIVE GENIE GOT OUT OF THE BOTTLE..."I JUST GOT TO HAVE...I WANT MORE AND MORE."
  • 08:40 THE PERENNIAL DISCONTENT THAT WE FEEL THAT CAUSES US TO BUY...WE SPEND WITH MONEY WE DON'T HAVE.
  • 08:48 WE'VE GOT TO FILL OUR CLOSETS, WE'VE GOT TO FILL OUR BARNS AND GROW OUR BARNS MORE, MORE, MORE.
  • 08:54 THAT RUINOUS INCLINATION IS EVIDENCED THE VERY FIRST IMPULSES OF BIBLICAL LITERATURE WHEN MANKIND WAS CREATED.
  • 09:08 AND HERE NOW THOUGH PLACED IN "GAN-EDEN, THOUGH PLACED IN PARADISE,
  • 09:16 IN RESPONSE TO THIS TRAGEDY
  • 09:19 ADAM AND "CHAV VAH" ARE EXPUNGED, THEY'RE KICKED OUT.
  • 09:23 WE'RE TOLD TRAGICALLY
  • 09:25 AFTER SOME JUDGMENTS WERE METED OUT AGAINST THE SERPENT,
  • 09:29 THE WOMAN AND THE MAN FINALLY,
  • 09:32 THAT THEY WERE THEN CAST OUT.
  • 09:35 ITS SOBER, IT'S SOMBER.
  • 09:37 IN VERSE 24,
  • 09:39 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 09:46 (SPEAKING HEBREW)
  • 09:55 WE'RE TOLD THEN WITH A FLAMING SWORD
  • 09:58 IN ORDER THAT MANKIND COULDN'T FIND THEIR WAY BACK.
  • 10:03 AND SO IT WAS WE WHO WERE MADE IN A GOOD CONDITION, WE RUINED IT,
  • 10:11 WE WERE SULLIED ACCORDING TO BIBLICAL TEXTS AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 10:16 BECAUSE OF THE DECEIVER...
  • 10:19 "PSSST...HEY, LADY DON'T LISTEN TO HIM, HE'S TRYING TO GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR HAPPINESS,"
  • 10:26 "HE'S TRYING TO MESS UP YOUR WORLD. ..TAKE THIS, HAVE THAT."
  • 10:31 AND THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE END.
  • 10:35 TRAGIC ISN'T IT THAT THE END IS SEWN RIGHT INTO THE OPENING NARRATIVE WITH HUMANKIND.
  • 10:45 SAD AS WELL IS THE FACT THAT IN SO MANY WAYS THIS THE ORIGINAL SIN IS PLAYED OUT IN WAYS THAT ARE ORIGINAL...
  • 10:54 DOR LA' DOR, FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION AS PEOPLE GRAB, SEIZE AS WE TAKE WHAT'S NOT OUR OWN.
  • 11:03 THE BIBLICAL STORY IS THAT THERE'S A DECEIVER,
  • 11:07 THERE'S NOW A SPIRIT THAT'S AT WORK AND THE SONS OF DISOBEDIENCE PRESSING US
  • 11:12 TO TAKE THAT WHICH IS NOT OUR OWN...AN EVIL SPIRIT.
  • 11:17 PEOPLE ARE TEMPTED BY DEMONS TODAY AS THEY WERE BY THIS PRINCE YESTERDAY.
  • 11:25 AND IN THIS SERIES WE CONSIDER HIS WAYS AS WE LOOK AT THE DEVIL.
  • 11:33 AND IN THIS PROGRAM PARTICULARLY WE NOTE HOW IT IS THAT HE MAKES HIS ENTRANCE ONTO THE STAGE OF THE HUMAN DRAMA
  • 11:40 AND THEN IN OUR NEXT SEGMENT WE'RE GOING TO GO ALL THE WAY TO THE END OF THE BIBLICAL STORY,
  • 11:46 TO THE BOOK "REVELATION" AND SEE HOW THIS BAD STORY HAS A GOOD END STILL.

  • 14:04 LEARN ABOUT IT NOW AS WE GO BACK TO LOCATION IN ISRAEL
  • 14:07 AND LEARN ABOUT JOHN'S BOOK, "THE REVELATION".
  • 14:13 "NO.....NO.......!!!!!"
  • 14:22 "AND I SAW AN ANGEL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN"
  • 14:25 "HAVING A KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT"
  • 14:27 "AND GREAT CHAIN IN HIS HAND."
  • 14:33 "AND HE LAID HOLD OF THE DRAGON,"
  • 14:36 "THAT OLD SERPENT WHICH IS THE DEVIL AND SATAN,"
  • 14:42 "AND BOUND HIM A THOUSAND YEARS."
  • 14:50 THEY MAY WELL HAVE BEEN THROWN OUT OF PARADISE IN THE BEGINNING...
  • 14:55 BUT NO SIREE, THAT WAS HARDLY THE END OF IT!
  • 15:01 GOD WASN'T GOING TO LEAVE IT AT THAT, AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 15:03 BECAUSE FROM THE BEGINNING PAGES OF THE BIBLE WE LEARN THAT GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD.
  • 15:09 IN DIFFERENT WAYS, THROUGH DIFFERENT ARRANGEMENTS WE DISCOVER A GOD WHO'S LOOKING TO WALK WITH PEOPLE...
  • 15:15 PEOPLE THAT BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN SINS WERE THROWN OUT OF PARADISE.
  • 15:21 BUT GOD IS LOOKING TO REDEEM, HE SENDS PROPHETS, PRIESTS, NOBLE KINGS,
  • 15:28 THERE ARE RENEWALS AND RIVALS BUT STILL THE WORLD GOES DOWN, DOWN, DOWN.
  • 15:36 FINALLY, WE READ IN THE BIBLICAL TEXT THAT THE LORD SENDS HIS SON INTO THE WORLD...DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HIM.
  • 15:42 HE CAME UNTO HIS OWN AND HIS OWN PEOPLE RECEIVED HIM NOT.
  • 15:46 THAT'S A REALLY TOUGH STORY.
  • 15:49 BUT THOUGH THE LORD WAS PERSONALLY REJECTED
  • 15:51 IT SEEMS AT ONE LEVEL THAT HE DIDN'T TAKE IT PERSONALLY, AND WHY DO I SAY THAT?
  • 15:56 BECAUSE THOUGH THERE WAS A CURSE...
  • 15:59 OH, AND WE READ ABOUT THE CURSE OF SIN IN BIBLICAL LITERATURE...
  • 16:05 OH, AND IN REVELATION PARTICULARLY
  • 16:08 THE WORLD IS SWEPT UP IN FAMINES, EARTHQUAKES, COSMIC DISTURBANCES.
  • 16:15 IT NOT ONLY AFFECTS PEOPLES AND LIVES, IT AFFECTS MINDS AND EVEN THE EARTH.
  • 16:21 IT'S LIKE NUCLEAR WINTER IN CERTAIN PLACES.
  • 16:25 IN A WORLD A PLANET IS REELING BENEATH THE BURDEN OF WORLD THAT IS JUST SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 16:34 BUT YOU KNOW GOD DIDN'T LEAVE IT LIKE THAT.
  • 16:39 SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT THE DEVIL KNOWS THAT HIS TIME IS SHORT
  • 16:43 AND HE RAMPS IT UP.
  • 16:46 BUT WE READ ABOUT A GOD WHO'S WORKING BEHIND HISTORY
  • 16:50 IN ORDER THAT HIS STORY WILL PREVAIL.
  • 16:55 AND WHAT IS THAT STORY?
  • 16:56 IN REVELATION CHAPTER 20 JOHN SEES AN ANGEL COMING DOWN FROM HEAVEN
  • 17:02 HAVING THE KEY TO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT AND A CHAIN IN HIS HAND.
  • 17:08 AND PRAY TELL WHAT HAVE WE HERE?
  • 17:11 AS A POLICE OFFICER ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION I HAVE TAKEN THE CUFFS OUT AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 17:17 BECAUSE SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE BOUND,
  • 17:21 SOMEONE IS THEN GOING TO BE TRIED
  • 17:24 AND SOMEONE IS GOING TO BE SENTENCED.
  • 17:27 OH, WHEN WE READ THE BIBLE WE READ ABOUT A WORLD GONE BAD
  • 17:30 BUT WE READ ABOUT PARADISE RESTORED AND WHY IS THAT?
  • 17:35 BECAUSE THE LORD SHOWS UP PERSONALLY
  • 17:38 AND HERE HE DISPATCHES ONE WITH A CHAIN AND WHAT DOES HE DO?
  • 17:41 WE'RE TOLD IN CHAPTER 20, VERSE 2,
  • 17:58 IT'S AN INTERESTING STORY.
  • 18:00 THE WORD "DEVIL" IS THE WORD "LIVED" SPELLED BACKWARDS
  • 18:05 AND AIN'T IT LIKE THE DEVIL TO TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN?
  • 18:09 AND ISN'T IT LIKE THE LORD TO TURN IT RIGHT SIDE UP?
  • 18:16 IN THIS SERIES WE'RE LOOKING AT THE TIME WHEN THE DEVIL HAS HIS DAY.
  • 18:21 THAT TIME COMES TO AN END.
  • 18:24 AND NOW IN THIS SERIES WE'LL FILL IN THE TIMES IN BETWEEN
  • 18:28 AS WE SPEAK OF THE DEMISE OF THE EVIL ONE.
  • 18:36 AND NOW IN PRAISE TO OUR LORD WHO IS EVER VICTORIOUS

  • 22:27 THANKS JEFF, GREAT TO BE BACK.
  • 22:29 YOU'VE BEEN TRAVELING ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVEN'T YOU?
  • 22:31 YES WE STARTED THE YEAR IN FINLAND
  • 22:34 AND WE'VE BEEN TO DOMINICAN REPUBLIC,
  • 22:37 WE'VE BEEN TO ISRAEL,
  • 22:39 WE WERE THERE TOGETHER AND WE'RE PLANNING MORE TRIPS FOR ISRAEL.
  • 22:42 WE'LL BE IN THE UKRAINE IN JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS TIME.
  • 22:45 WE'RE GOING TO THE MIDDLE EAST OF DUBAI IN KUWAIT THIS YEAR
  • 22:50 TO INVADE THE MUSLIM WORLD...
  • 22:52 THROUGH PRAISE.
  • 22:53 YES BECAUSE PRAISE IS SO POWERFUL JEFF
  • 22:57 IT BREAKS DOWN BARRIERS,
  • 22:59 IT INVADES THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
  • 23:02 I'M A LITTLE JEALOUS.
  • 23:03 THEY DON'T INVITE ME TO PREACH MUCH
  • 23:04 BUT THEY SURE BE INVITING YOU TO SING! (LAUGHING)
  • 23:06 I'M KIDDING. BLESS YOU.
  • 23:10 THANK YOU.
  • 23:12 IT'S JUST A GREAT PRIVILEGE TO CARRY THE MESSAGE
  • 23:14 THAT GOD HAS PUT IN THE BOTH OF US INTO THE WORLD TODAY.
  • 23:18 AND THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH.
  • 23:21 THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT GOD IS TURNING
  • 23:23 THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN
  • 23:26 AND THE HEARTS OF THE CHILDREN TO THE FATHERS.
  • 23:28 HE'S TURNING THE HEART OF THE JEW TO THE CHRISTIAN.
  • 23:31 HE'S TURNING THE HEART OF THE CHRISTIAN TO THE JEW;
  • 23:33 THE HEART OF ISRAEL TO THE NATIONS
  • 23:35 AND THE HEART OF THE NATIONS TO ISRAEL.
  • 23:37 SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO SEE
  • 23:39 BECAUSE THE MEDIA SO PLAYS UP THE NEGATIVE.
  • 23:42 BUT WE HAVE A GOD WHO IS SO OMNIPOTENT,
  • 23:45 HE'S WORKING HIS PLAN UNDER THE WHOLE COVERING
  • 23:51 OF WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE EARTH TODAY
  • 23:53 AND HE'S VICTORIOUS EVERY TIME.
  • 23:54 SEE I BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE A GOOD NEWS WORD IN A BAD NEWS WORLD.
  • 23:59 THAT'S TRUE.
  • 24:01 I BELIEVE THAT WE'RE TO BE A VICTOR AND NOT A VICTIM
  • 24:03 AND DIFFICULTIES NOTWITHSTANDING
  • 24:05 WE HAVE A GOD WHO DELIVERS.
  • 24:06 ABSOLUTELY AND ONE OF THE WAYS THAT HE HELPS TO DELIVER US
  • 24:10 IS BY THE POWER OF WHAT WE SAY.
  • 24:13 YOU STARTED THIS PROGRAM IN GENESIS
  • 24:15 AND LOOK HOW IT BEGAN IN THE SPIRIT...
  • 24:17 "GOD SAID AND IT WAS".
  • 24:19 HE'S GIVEN US POWER AND AUTHORITY.
  • 24:21 OUR WORDS HAVE POWER... CHANGES THE ATMOSPHERE AROUND US, WHY?
  • 24:26 BECAUSE HE INHABITS OUR PRAISES.
  • 24:28 RIGHT, THAT IS A GOOD POINT.
  • 24:31 AND WE'RE TOO BUSY SHARING THAT WORD IN THIS WORLD
  • 24:34 UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE LORD TAKES US HOME.
  • 24:37 AND FOR THAT WE WAIT THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET, THE RAPTURE.
  • 24:42 AND NOW HERE'S ZOLA LEVITT, THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT, TO TALK TO US ABOUT THAT.
  • 24:48 WE'RE GONNA LOOK AHEAD
  • 24:50 AT THE EVENTS OF PROPHECY
  • 24:52 AS THEY'RE GIVEN IN THE SCRIPTURE
  • 24:53 AND OF COURSE THE FIRST ONE OF THOSE
  • 24:55 IS THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 24:57 I SAY "THE FIRST"
  • 24:58 BECAUSE THAT IS AN EVENT THAT COMES AS A SURPRISE.
  • 25:01 LEAVING OUT ALL OF THE THEOLOGICAL ARGUMENTS FOR IT,
  • 25:05 THE VARIOUS SCRIPTURES THAT SHOW ITS BEFORE THE TRIBULATION, ALL THE REST OF IT,
  • 25:11 THE RAPTURE IS A SURPRISE, ITS IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE,
  • 25:14 ITS AS LIGHTNING GOES ACROSS THE SKY.
  • 25:17 IT'S A SUDDEN THING.
  • 25:19 AND IF IT'S A SUDDEN THING IT CAN'T COME AFTER SOME OTHER THING.
  • 25:22 IN OTHER WORDS IF IT HAS AN EVENT
  • 25:25 LIKE FOLLOWING THE ANTI-CHRIST SIGNING THE PEACE COVENANT WITH ISRAEL,
  • 25:29 WHICH LOOKS LIKE ITS IN THE NEAR FUTURE;
  • 25:31 IF IT WAITED FOR THAT THEN YOU WOULD KNOW
  • 25:35 WHEN THE COVENANT WAS SIGNED THE RAPTURE'S COMING RIGHT UP.
  • 25:39 IT COULDN'T BE AT THE MID TRIB POINT OR THE POST TRIB POINT FOR THE SAME REASON,
  • 25:42 YOU COULD JUST PUT IT ON A CALENDAR, YOU'D BE READY TO GO, YOU'D BE PACKED FOR THE RAPTURE.
  • 25:46 THAT'S NOT HOW THE RAPTURE HAPPENS.
  • 25:48 WE KNOW ITS COMING...
  • 25:50 WE DON'T KNOW WHEN IT'S COMING AND THAT IS AN IMPORTANT POINT ABOUT THE RAPTURE,
  • 25:54 THE IMPORTANT POINT.
  • 25:55 THE THING ABOUT THE RAPTURE IS THAT IT CAN HAPPEN ANY TIME.
  • 26:02 WE DO WELL TO BE READY DON'T WE PAUL?
  • 26:04 I THINK ITS SOMETHING
  • 26:05 THAT WE SHOULD BE LOOKING TOWARDS.
  • 26:07 YOU KNOW THE SCRIPTURES TELLS US
  • 26:08 THAT EVEN LIKE THOSE FAITHFUL VIRGINS
  • 26:11 TO KEEP OUR LAMPS FULL OF OIL,
  • 26:13 KEEP THAT WICK TRIMMED
  • 26:15 THAT THE LIGHT IS BURNING BRIGHT
  • 26:17 SO THAT THE THINGS THAT WE SPEAK,
  • 26:19 THE THINGS THAT WE DO,
  • 26:20 EVEN THE THINGS THAT WE MEDITATE ON,
  • 26:22 THAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR THE SOON RETURN OF OUR MESSIAH AND OUR KING.
  • 26:26 YEAH, WE'RE TO KEEP OUR SHIELD OF FAITH UP
  • 26:28 THAT'S WHY WE NEED GOOD BIBLE TEACHING,
  • 26:30 GOOD PROGRAMMING TO ENCOURAGE BIBLICAL FAITH IN THE LORD, CORRECT?
  • 26:33 SO MANY TIMES JEFF AS I'VE TRAVELED AROUND THE WORLD
  • 26:36 AND PROBABLY IT'S TRUE FOR YOU...
  • 26:38 WHEN I CAN LOG ON TO A GREAT TELEVISION PROGRAM
  • 26:42 IN WHATEVER COUNTRY, WHERE MY SPIRIT IS BUILT UP
  • 26:46 I'M ENCOURAGED,
  • 26:47 I'M HEARING THE WORD
  • 26:48 AND IT BUILDS UP OUR FAITH.
  • 26:49 YES, AND THANK YOU
  • 26:51 FOR ALLOWING US TO BUILD UP YOUR FAITH
  • 26:53 AND AS YOU GO,
  • 26:55 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
  • 26:57 PLEASE PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
