  • WELCOME TO THE BROADCAST WHEREVER YOU'RE WATCHING
  • 00:01:17.270 --> 00:01:19.100
  • AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:21.090
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A FAVORITE SUBJECT
  • 00:01:21.110 --> 00:01:23.080

  • IT IS THE AMAZING BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:01:25.100 --> 00:01:27.280
  • NATION OF ISRAEL. PASTOR ALLEN JACKSON --
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:30.110
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: WE'RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU.
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:33.070
  • - PASTOR ALLEN JACKSON: I'M EXCITED TO BE HERE.
  • 00:01:33.090 --> 00:01:34.260
  • - NICE TO MEET YOU.
  • 00:01:34.280 --> 00:01:36.220
  • NICE TO GET THIS UNDER WAY, BUT BASICALLY LET'S
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:38.220
  • START WITH A BIG WIDE SHOT.
  • 00:01:38.240 --> 00:01:41.040
  • WHY DOES ISRAEL MATTER TO US WATCHING
  • 00:01:41.060 --> 00:01:44.030
  • AROUND THE WORLD?
  • 00:01:44.050 --> 00:01:46.050
  • THIS BROADCAST, WHY DOES ISRAEL MATTER?
  • 00:01:46.070 --> 00:01:48.040
  • - I THINK THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS IT MATTERS TO GOD.
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:51.090
  • IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS THERE'S A LITTLE PHRASE
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:54.010
  • THAT'S USED SEVERAL TIMES, TO THE JEW FIRST
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:55.280
  • AND THEN TO THE GENTILE.
  • 00:01:56.000 --> 00:01:57.280
  • AND GENTILE IS THE NEW TESTAMENT WORD FOR
  • 00:01:58.000 --> 00:01:59.180
  • EVERYBODY'S THAT'S NOT JEWISH, SO THERE'S A
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.010
  • PATTERN THERE THAT STARTS IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS
  • 00:02:02.030 --> 00:02:03.250
  • AND GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE BOOK OF REVELATION
  • 00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:06.090
  • THAT WE CAN LEARN MUCH ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:08.050
  • IN THE EARTH AND HOW HE'S DOING IT BY WATCHING WHAT
  • 00:02:08.070 --> 00:02:10.120
  • HE'S DONE IN THE MIDST OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:10.140 --> 00:02:12.070
  • AND THAT'S TRUE IN THE LIFE OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC,
  • 00:02:12.090 --> 00:02:14.170
  • AND JACOB, AND THAT'S TRUE IN THE EARTH TODAY.
  • 00:02:14.190 --> 00:02:16.120
  • AND SO ISRAEL IS A TEMPLATE.
  • 00:02:16.140 --> 00:02:18.230
  • IF WE USE THE HEADLINES FROM TODAY,
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:20.260
  • IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.
  • 00:02:20.280 --> 00:02:22.180
  • I'VE BEEN GOING TO ISRAEL SINCE 1970, AND I
  • 00:02:22.200 --> 00:02:24.270
  • REMEMBER WAS TERRORISM WAS AN ISRAELI PROBLEM,
  • 00:02:24.290 --> 00:02:27.210
  • AND NOW IT'S A PROBLEM THAT'S DOMINATING OUR
  • 00:02:27.230 --> 00:02:30.060
  • LIVES AND FILLING THE HEADLINES IN EUROPE, AND
  • 00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:32.200
  • I THINK THE BIBLE IS AS REAL AS THAT, TO THE JEW
  • 00:02:32.220 --> 00:02:35.050
  • FIRST AND THEN TO THE GENTILE.
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:36.260
  • SO I THINK THERE'S A THEOLOGICAL COMPONENT,
  • 00:02:36.280 --> 00:02:39.120
  • BUT I ALSO THERE'S A PRACTICEAL COMPONENT.
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:43.020
  • BIG SURPRISE, THE BIBLE IS NOT JUST A
  • 00:02:43.040 --> 00:02:44.240
  • BOOK OF THEOLOGY.
  • 00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:46.150
  • IT'S A BOOK TO HELP US THRIVE IN LIFE.
  • 00:02:46.170 --> 00:02:49.030
  • AND THE MORE I'M AWARE OF WHAT GOD HAS SAID AND I
  • 00:02:49.050 --> 00:02:51.050
  • TREAT IT SERIOUSLY, THE BETTER MY LIFE WILL BE.
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:53.090
  • AND I THINK UNDERSTANDING WHAT GOD IS DOING IN
  • 00:02:53.110 --> 00:02:55.030
  • ISRAEL AND WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE HELPS US
  • 00:02:55.050 --> 00:02:56.250
  • THRIVE IN OUR HOMES, IN OUR MARRIAGES, AS
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:02:59.200
  • PARENTS, AS CHURCH FOLK, AND ALL THE DIFFERENT
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:02.120
  • ARENAS THAT OUR LIVES FILL.
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:04.280
  • THERE'S SOME OTHER COMPONENTS.
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:07.080
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION TELLS US THAT THE CITY OF
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:09.270
  • JERUSALEM, JESUS IS GOING TO RULE AND REIGN ON
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:12.120
  • PLANET EARTH FROM THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:14.140
  • - MATT CROUCH: COME ON NOW.
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:16.110
  • - AND ONE DAY WE'RE GOING TO VISIT THAT CITY
  • 00:03:16.130 --> 00:03:18.020
  • WITH JESUS ON THE THRONE, BUT TO WALK INTO THE
  • 00:03:18.040 --> 00:03:19.260
  • BIBLICAL CITY OF JERUSALEM YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:22.060
  • WALK THROUGH A GATE WITH THE NAME OF A HEBREW MAN
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:24.050
  • ON IT, AND AT THE CENTER OF THE CITY THERE WILL BE
  • 00:03:24.070 --> 00:03:26.260
  • A THRONE WITH A HEBREW KING REIGNING ON IT.
  • 00:03:26.280 --> 00:03:30.030
  • IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY AWKWARD PLACE IF YOU'RE
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:31.240
  • ON ANTI-SEMITE, SO I THINK LEARNING TO LOVE
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:34.170
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE TODAY IS KIND OF A WARM UP FOR
  • 00:03:34.190 --> 00:03:36.290
  • WHAT'S AHEAD OF US.
  • 00:03:37.010 --> 00:03:39.010
  • TO SAY WE BELIEVE THE NEW TESTAMENT -A LOT OF FOLKS
  • 00:03:39.030 --> 00:03:41.110
  • SAY I'M A NEW TESTAMENT KIND OF CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:43.090
  • THE OLD TESTAMENT IS KIND OF A PREAMBLE, BUT
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:45.190
  • THEY'RE NOT SEPARATE BOOKS, AND TO REALLY
  • 00:03:45.210 --> 00:03:47.160
  • UNDERSTAND THE REDEMPTIVE WORK OF JESUS AND THE
  • 00:03:47.180 --> 00:03:49.250
  • CROSS AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU AND WHAT THE
  • 00:03:49.270 --> 00:03:51.250
  • PROMISE OF IT IS GROUNDED IN THE PROMISE
  • 00:03:51.270 --> 00:03:54.110
  • GOD MADE TO ABRAHAM AND WHAT GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:57.010
  • IN CHAPTER 12 OF THE BOOK OF GENESIS IS GIVEN A
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:04:00.090
  • DIRECT CONNECTION TO US IN THE BOOK OF GALATIANS
  • 00:04:00.110 --> 00:04:02.080
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:04:02.100 --> 00:04:04.120
  • ALL THE PROMISES OF THE REDEMPTIVE WORK OF JESUS
  • 00:04:04.140 --> 00:04:06.190
  • ARE THE FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S PROMISE TO ABRAHAM.
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:09.010
  • - MATT CROUCH: RIGHT.
  • 00:04:09.030 --> 00:04:11.090
  • - WE OWE A TREMENDOUS DEBT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:14.010
  • AND I THINK THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND -WITHOUT THE
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:16.030
  • JEWISH PEOPLE WE HAVE NO SCRIPTURE, WE HAVE NO
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:18.030
  • PROPHETS, WE HAVE NO STORY, WE HAVE NO MESSIAH.
  • 00:04:18.050 --> 00:04:21.100
  • SO IF WE'RE JUST UNAWARE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE OR
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:23.050
  • WE THINK GOD SET THEM ASIDE WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:25.040
  • FORFEIT A LOT.
  • 00:04:25.060 --> 00:04:26.190
  • SO OPENING THOSE DOORS MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:28.220
  • AND THERE'S A PERSONAL PIECE OF THAT.
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:30.250
  • I WENT TO ISRAEL THE FIRST TIME WHEN I WAS IN
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.250
  • THE 6TH GRADE.
  • 00:04:32.270 --> 00:04:34.180
  • I WENT ON A TOUR WITH DEREK AND LYDIA RPINCE.
  • 00:04:34.200 --> 00:04:37.240
  • MY PARENTS TOOK MY BROTHER AND I.
  • 00:04:37.260 --> 00:04:40.030
  • AND I WALKED DOWN KING GEORGE STREET AND BEGAN
  • 00:04:40.050 --> 00:04:41.240
  • TO LEARN THE HEBREW ALPHABET.
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:43.160
  • BUT IT PUT IN MY HEART A LOVE FOR THE JEWISH
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:45.190
  • PEOPLE AND FOR THE LAND OF ISRAEL FROM THE TIME I
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:47.160
  • WAS A CHILD.
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:49.130
  • AND IT CHANGED THE WAY I READ MY BIBLE AND HOW I
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:51.050
  • UNDERSTOOD MY FAITH, AND IT'S GIVEN ME A COURAGE.
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:53.200
  • I'VE WATCHED ISRAEL FLOURISH IN THE MIDST OF
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:55.230
  • A VERY TUMULTUOUS NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.240
  • AND IF GOD IS BLESSING WORK IN THAT ARENA, GOD
  • 00:04:57.260 --> 00:05:00.050
  • IS BLESSING A WORK ON THE STREET WHERE I LIVE.
  • 00:05:00.070 --> 00:05:02.270
  • AND IT'S GIVEN ME THE COURAGE TO TRUST GOD TO
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.280
  • LIFT ME OUT OF MY PROBLEMS.
  • 00:05:05.000 --> 00:05:06.120
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:05:06.140 --> 00:05:08.080
  • YOU SAID SOMETHING THAT I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:10.170
  • HEARD ANYONE DO THAT BEFORE.
  • 00:05:10.190 --> 00:05:13.000
  • TWO THINGS, TO THE JEW FIRST, THEN THE GENTILE,
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:16.180
  • YOU KIND OF PUT A BIG UMBRELLA STATEMENT OVER
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:22.120
  • THAT THAT EVEN THIS IDEA OF TERRORISM THAT WE USED
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:25.280
  • TO THINK ABOUT ONLY KIND OF HAPPENING OVER THERE
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:29.070
  • IS NOW OVER HERE.
  • 00:05:29.090 --> 00:05:31.240
  • THE GOSPEL TO THE JEW FIRST AND THEN TO THE
  • 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:34.150
  • GENTILE, SO YOU'RE KIND OF PUTTING A BIG BLANKET
  • 00:05:34.170 --> 00:05:37.080
  • THING, THAT, AND YOU SAID THAT ONE DAY WE'RE GOING
  • 00:05:37.100 --> 00:05:39.290
  • TO WALK TO ISRAEL AND IT'S GOING TO BE -CAN WE
  • 00:05:40.010 --> 00:05:43.030
  • FLY OR -- [ LAUGHTER ] DO WE HAVE TO WALK?
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:45.240
  • - I SAY WE'D WALK IN THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:05:45.260 --> 00:05:47.030
  • YEAH, WE CAN FLY.
  • 00:05:47.050 --> 00:05:48.190
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:05:48.210 --> 00:05:49.260
  • WE CAN FLY OVER THERE AND THEN WALK.
  • 00:05:49.280 --> 00:05:51.160
  • OKAY. GOOD.
  • 00:05:51.180 --> 00:05:53.070
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:54.270
  • SO DIG DEEPER INTO THAT STATEMENT.
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:05:56.260
  • AND IS THERE ANYBODY THAT'S GOING TO TAKE YOU
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.290
  • TO TASK THAT YOU'RE TAKING THAT OUT OF
  • 00:05:59.010 --> 00:06:00.210
  • CONTEXT, THIS TO THE JEW FIRST, THEN THE GENTILE
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:04.000
  • AND MAKING A BIG -YOU CAN DRIVE A TRUCK THROUGH
  • 00:06:04.020 --> 00:06:06.110
  • THAT STATEMENT.
  • 00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:08.090
  • SO IS THAT -BUT YOU DID THAT SO BACK THAT UP
  • 00:06:08.110 --> 00:06:10.230
  • FOR A MINUTE.
  • 00:06:10.250 --> 00:06:12.180
  • - IS SOMEBODY GOING TO TAKE ME TO TASK?
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:13.280
  • ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:06:14.000 --> 00:06:15.130
  • - WELL, NOT ME.
  • 00:06:15.150 --> 00:06:16.250
  • LAURIE WILL IN A MINUTE.
  • 00:06:16.270 --> 00:06:18.020
  • GO AHEAD.
  • 00:06:18.040 --> 00:06:19.160
  • - LAURIE CROUCH: YEAH. ME.
  • 00:06:19.180 --> 00:06:20.260
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:06:20.280 --> 00:06:22.170
  • - IT'S YES, IT'S A BIG STATEMENT, BUT IT'S ALSO
  • 00:06:22.190 --> 00:06:24.110
  • THE STATEMENT OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:06:24.130 --> 00:06:26.000
  • WE DON'T HAVE A REDEMPTIVE STORY WITHOUT
  • 00:06:26.020 --> 00:06:27.250
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:27.270 --> 00:06:29.040
  • WE DON'T HAVE A MESSIAH.
  • 00:06:29.060 --> 00:06:31.030
  • WE DON'T HAVE THE REDEMPTIVE PURPOSES OF
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:32.270
  • GOD WITHOUT THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:34.200
  • AND IF IT'S TRUE IN THAT WAY, I THINK WE SHOULD
  • 00:06:34.220 --> 00:06:36.210
  • OPEN OUR HEARTS TO SEE THE OTHER WAYS THAT
  • 00:06:36.230 --> 00:06:38.120
  • IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:06:38.140 --> 00:06:40.010
  • YOU KNOW, A PART OF THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH HAS
  • 00:06:40.030 --> 00:06:42.110
  • BEEN A BIT OF A RUSH TO SET THE JEWISH PEOPLE ASIDE.
  • 00:06:42.130 --> 00:06:44.230
  • THE GREATEST PERSECUTORS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:06:44.250 --> 00:06:46.280
  • THROUGH HISTORY WEREN'T THE NAZIS OR THE
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:48.280
  • COMMUNISTS OR SOME OTHER -THE MUSLIMS.
  • 00:06:49.000 --> 00:06:51.070
  • IT'S BEEN THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH.
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:53.150
  • IT'S AN AWKWARD PART OF OUR HISTORY, BUT I THINK
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:55.170
  • A PART OF WHAT WE'RE SEEING IN THIS GENERATION
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:57.270
  • IS WE'RE MORE BIBLICALLY AWARE, AND THE JEWISH
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:07:01.090
  • PEOPLE STILL COME TO THE CROSS THE SAME WAY WE DO.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:04.190
  • THERE'S NOT A SEPARATE COVENANT FOR THEM, BUT I
  • 00:07:04.210 --> 00:07:07.050
  • THINK IF WE WATCH WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN THERE
  • 00:07:07.070 --> 00:07:09.290
  • LIVES AND IS HE'S FAITHFUL IN FULL FILLING
  • 00:07:10.010 --> 00:07:12.020
  • THE PROMISE OF HIS WORD TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:14.210
  • THEY HAVE ONE OF THE STRONGEST ECONOMIES IN
  • 00:07:14.230 --> 00:07:16.060
  • THE WORLD TODAY.
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:18.060
  • THEIR TECH START-UPS LEAD THE WORLD.
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:20.110
  • THEIR DESALINATION PLANTS ARE OPENING DRINKING
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:23.060
  • WATER IDEAS TO THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:24.280
  • - HERE IN CALIFORNIA, BY THE WAY, FOUR OF THEM
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:27.070
  • BEING BUILT.
  • 00:07:27.090 --> 00:07:29.150
  • GO AHEAD.
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.190
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:33.150
  • AND IF WE SEE THAT HAPPENING IN TECHNOLOGY
  • 00:07:33.170 --> 00:07:35.100
  • AND IN THE SCIENCES AND AGRICULTURE, IT'S GOD
  • 00:07:35.120 --> 00:07:37.050
  • FULFILLING HIS PROMISES.
  • 00:07:37.070 --> 00:07:38.240
  • AND HE'S STILL FULFILLING THEM IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:07:38.260 --> 00:07:40.220
  • WE'VE KIND OF MADE THIS DIVISION THAT I THINK
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:42.090
  • ISN'T HELPFUL.
  • 00:07:42.110 --> 00:07:44.000
  • WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR IS WAYS FOR ME TO TRUST GOD
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:45.170
  • IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:07:45.190 --> 00:07:47.210
  • LIFE COMES WITH PROBLEMS.
  • 00:07:47.230 --> 00:07:49.220
  • FAMILIES COME WITH PROBLEMS.
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:51.270
  • LIFE COMES WITH CHALLENGES, AND WE NEED
  • 00:07:51.290 --> 00:07:53.220
  • TO KNOW THAT GOD IS FAITHFUL, AND WE CAN
  • 00:07:53.240 --> 00:07:55.280
  • TRUST HIM TO HELP US AND BRING DELIVERANCE, AND IF
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:58.060
  • HE CAN WATCH OVER THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND GATHER
  • 00:07:58.080 --> 00:08:00.080
  • THEM FROM THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD AFTER 2.000
  • 00:08:00.100 --> 00:08:01.270
  • YEARS OF BEING IN DISPERSION, WE CAN TRUST
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:04.210
  • HIM TO WATCH OVER THE CRAZINESS IN MY LIFE AND
  • 00:08:04.230 --> 00:08:06.240
  • IN YOUR LIFE AND ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.280
  • JOINING US TODAY.
  • 00:08:09.000 --> 00:08:10.190
  • GOD IS FAITHFUL.
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:12.220
  • YOU CAN TRUST HIM.
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:14.230
  • AND SO ABSOLUTELY I THINK TO THE JEW FIRST AND THEN
  • 00:08:14.250 --> 00:08:16.150
  • TO THE GENTILE.
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:18.110
  • IT'S A BROAD STATEMENT.
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:20.140
  • BUT GOD MADE IT.
  • 00:08:20.160 --> 00:08:22.210
  • I DIDN'T DREAM THAT UP.
  • 00:08:22.230 --> 00:08:24.230
  • - OKAY.
  • 00:08:24.250 --> 00:08:26.280
  • - I'LL STAND WITH SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:28.230
  • - GOT IT.
  • 00:08:28.250 --> 00:08:31.000
  • LET ME POINT OUT ONE OTHER THING.
  • 00:08:31.020 --> 00:08:34.220
  • THE SECOND BOLD THING YOU'VE SAID IS THAT THE
  • 00:08:34.240 --> 00:08:39.160
  • CHRISTIAN CHURCH HAS BEEN REALLY MORE OF A NEGATIVE
  • 00:08:39.180 --> 00:08:41.250
  • IMPACT ON THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.200
  • EXPLAIN THAT BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT
  • 00:08:43.220 --> 00:08:45.120
  • THAT HOLOCAUST THING THAT KIND OF HAPPENED.
  • 00:08:45.140 --> 00:08:47.250
  • SO HOW DO YOU LINK CHRISTIANITY AND THE
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:51.050
  • ATROCITIES OF THAT AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE?
  • 00:08:51.070 --> 00:08:54.170
  • - WELL, I THINK A BRIEF REVIEW OF EUROPEAN
  • 00:08:54.190 --> 00:08:58.060
  • HISTORY OR THE HISTORY OF THE WEST AND IT'S NOT
  • 00:08:58.080 --> 00:09:02.060
  • HARD TO FIND. SHAKESPEARE, HIS WRITINGS
  • 00:09:02.080 --> 00:09:06.130
  • REFLECT AN ANTI-SEMITIC TONE NOT SO MUCH ROOTED
  • 00:09:06.150 --> 00:09:08.230
  • IN HIS PERSON OR PERSONALITY, BUT IN THE
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:10.190
  • CULTURE THAT HE WAS A PART OF.
  • 00:09:10.210 --> 00:09:12.280
  • THE SPANISH INQUISITION WHERE THE JEWS WERE
  • 00:09:13.000 --> 00:09:16.060
  • DRIVEN OUT OF SPAIN, IN RUSSIA THE POGROMS WHERE
  • 00:09:16.080 --> 00:09:19.080
  • IF THERE WAS A PLAGUE OR A PROBLEM, IT WAS EASY
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:23.020
  • FOR THE PRIEST TO SAY IT WAS A RESULT OF THE
  • 00:09:23.040 --> 00:09:25.020
  • JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:25.040 --> 00:09:26.250
  • - WOW.
  • 00:09:26.270 --> 00:09:28.250
  • - AND THAT'S THE TRUTH, AND OFTEN WE WANT
  • 00:09:28.270 --> 00:09:30.210
  • TO DENY IT.
  • 00:09:30.230 --> 00:09:32.140
  • I STUDIED AT HEBREW UNIVERSITY.
  • 00:09:32.160 --> 00:09:34.060
  • IT WAS AWKWARD SOMETIMES IN THE CLASSROOMS WITH
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:36.060
  • THE JEWISH STUDENTS, AND THEY'D TURN AND SAY, WHY
  • 00:09:36.080 --> 00:09:38.050
  • HAVE YOU FELT THIS WAY ABOUT US?
  • 00:09:38.070 --> 00:09:40.160
  • - BUT THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE THAT WE SEE
  • 00:09:40.180 --> 00:09:42.080
  • HAPPENING TODAY.
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:44.040
  • THE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN INSIDE THE WORLD ARE THE
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:45.220
  • BEST FRIENDS ISRAEL HAS.
  • 00:09:45.240 --> 00:09:47.160
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.100
  • - AND THE ISRAEL HE'S ARE WAKING UP TO THAT,
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:51.230
  • AND IT'S REALLY EXCITING TO SEE HOW GOD IS
  • 00:09:51.250 --> 00:09:53.240
  • BRINGING ALIGNMENT BACK INTO THAT IN OUR WORLD
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:56.080
  • BECAUSE 20 YEARS AGO THE ISRAELI ON THE STREET,
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:58.070
  • THE SECULAR ISRAELI WAS MORE COMFORTABLE WITH A
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:10:01.070
  • MUSLIM THAN A CHRISTIAN, AND WE SEE THAT CHANGING
  • 00:10:01.090 --> 00:10:04.120
  • TODAY WHICH IS REAL EXCITING.
  • 00:10:04.140 --> 00:10:07.180
  • - HOW IS THAT CHANGING?
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:10.030
  • IF THERE IS KIND OF DARK CHUNKS OF HISTORY BETWEEN
  • 00:10:10.050 --> 00:10:12.120
  • CHRISTIANS AND JEWS, AND THERE ARE.
  • 00:10:12.140 --> 00:10:14.210
  • I MEAN, IF YOU GO BACK TO EVEN 325 AND THE COUNCIL
  • 00:10:14.230 --> 00:10:17.110
  • OF NICAEA THERE WERE NO JEWS EVEN
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:19.160
  • INVITED TO THAT.
  • 00:10:19.180 --> 00:10:22.050
  • SO WITHIN 300 YEARS THEY WERE ALMOST SWEPT OUT OF
  • 00:10:22.070 --> 00:10:25.020
  • CHURCH HISTORY OR ATTEMPT POINTED TO BE SWEPT OUT
  • 00:10:25.040 --> 00:10:27.280
  • OF CHURCH HISTORY, SO ULTIMATELY NOW MOVING
  • 00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:29.240
  • FORWARD WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENED, AND HOW DID WE
  • 00:10:29.260 --> 00:10:35.060
  • MAYBE GET ON THE OTHER SIDE?
  • 00:10:35.080 --> 00:10:38.190
  • AND HOW IS IT THAT PRIME MINISTERS AND, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:10:38.210 --> 00:10:42.070
  • AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED STATES, MR. DERMER AND
  • 00:10:42.090 --> 00:10:46.010
  • SOME OTHERS ARE WAKING UP TO THE FACT THAT
  • 00:10:46.030 --> 00:10:48.200
  • CHRISTIANS ARE THE BEST FRIENDS TO ISRAEL?
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:52.250
  • WHEN DID WE FIX THAT OR HOW DID THAT -WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:10:52.270 --> 00:10:54.240
  • THINK WAS THE TRIGGER THAT STARTED FIXING THAT?
  • 00:10:54.260 --> 00:10:56.190
  • - THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION, AND THE ONE
  • 00:10:56.210 --> 00:10:59.110
  • WORD ANSWER IS GOD.
  • 00:10:59.130 --> 00:11:01.250
  • BUT WE DIDN'T WAIT UNTIL NICAEA.
  • 00:11:01.270 --> 00:11:04.010
  • IN ROMANS 9, 10, AND 11 PAUL IS ALREADY TALKING
  • 00:11:04.030 --> 00:11:06.160
  • TO THE CHURCH IN ROAM SAYING, DID GOD REJECT
  • 00:11:06.180 --> 00:11:09.230
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE?
  • 00:11:09.250 --> 00:11:11.150
  • GOD FORBID.
  • 00:11:11.170 --> 00:11:12.220
  • SO IT STARTS BEFORE WE GET THE CANON ON THE NEW
  • 00:11:12.240 --> 00:11:14.180
  • TESTAMENT LOCKED DOWN WITH THAT IDEA.
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:16.230
  • BUT I THINK IN 1948 WHEN GOD -WHEN THE NATION OF
  • 00:11:16.250 --> 00:11:20.150
  • ISRAEL WAS REBORN AND WE SAW THAT MIRACLE START TO
  • 00:11:20.170 --> 00:11:23.260
  • HAPPEN, I THINK WE WERE WATCHING TWO THINGS
  • 00:11:23.280 --> 00:11:26.020
  • HAPPENING IN PARALLEL, THE RE GATHERING OF THE
  • 00:11:26.040 --> 00:11:28.000
  • JEWISH PEOPLE, THE SOFTENING OF THEIR HEARTS
  • 00:11:28.020 --> 00:11:30.070
  • TURNING TO THE PURPOSES OF GOD IN NEW WAYS, THEM
  • 00:11:30.090 --> 00:11:32.170
  • FLOURISHING IN THE MIDST OF THE SEA OF HATRED AND
  • 00:11:32.190 --> 00:11:35.060
  • VIOLENCE, AND WE SEE GOD AWAKENING HIS CHURCH
  • 00:11:35.080 --> 00:11:37.200
  • IN A NEW WAY.
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:40.000
  • AN OUTPOURING OF HIS SPIRIT WITH THE
  • 00:11:40.020 --> 00:11:42.170
  • EMERGENCES OF SO MANY THINGS, THINGS LIKE TBN
  • 00:11:42.190 --> 00:11:45.030
  • AND TOOLS THAT ARE ALLOWING THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:11:45.050 --> 00:11:48.180
  • AND THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST TO BE STRENGTHENED
  • 00:11:48.200 --> 00:11:50.230
  • AROUND THE EARTH IN REMARKABLE WAYS.
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:53.140
  • YOU KNOW, THE PROPHET SAID GOD WOULD GATHER THE
  • 00:11:53.160 --> 00:11:55.180
  • JEWISH PEOPLE BACK TO ISRAEL AND BEGIN TO
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:57.210
  • CLEANSE THEIR HEARTS, AND HE'S DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:12:00.070
  • SIMILAR IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:12:00.090 --> 00:12:02.140
  • I THINK HE'S AWAKENING HIS PEOPLE AND PREPARING
  • 00:12:02.160 --> 00:12:04.150
  • US, GIVING US A NEW FOCUS ON THE WORD OF GOD, THE
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:06.200
  • PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE
  • 00:12:06.220 --> 00:12:08.060
  • AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:12:08.080 --> 00:12:10.040
  • AND I REALLY THINK IT HELPS US UNDERSTAND WE
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:12.000
  • CAN FLOURISH IN THE MIDST OF A TUMULTUOUS
  • 00:12:12.020 --> 00:12:14.190
  • WORLD, IN THE MIDST OF A WORLD THAT IS
  • 00:12:14.210 --> 00:12:17.040
  • INCREASINGLY ANGRY, EVEN VIOLENT WHERE THERE ARE
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:19.290
  • ALL KINDS OF THREATS WE CAN LIVE IN PEACE, AND
  • 00:12:20.010 --> 00:12:22.150
  • THE PROMISE OF GOD THAT WE SEE PLAYED OUT ON THE
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:25.030
  • EVENING NEWS IT WORKS ON THE STREET WHERE I LIVE.
  • 00:12:25.050 --> 00:12:27.090
  • THAT'S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT MY BIBLE.
  • 00:12:27.110 --> 00:12:29.160
  • IT'S NOT ABSTRACT THEOLOGY.
  • 00:12:29.180 --> 00:12:31.250
  • IT'S GOD'S WORD TO ME IN THE MIDST OF THE
  • 00:12:31.270 --> 00:12:34.100
  • CHALLENGE THAT IS MY LIFE, AND SO OFTEN WE
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:37.060
  • TALK ABOUT PROPHECY, WE THINK IT'S SOMETHING FROM
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:39.140
  • ANTIQUITY OR SOMETHING JUST ABOUT THE FUTURE,
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:41.170
  • ABOUT WHEN THE TRUMPET IS GOING TO BLOW AND WE'RE
  • 00:12:41.190 --> 00:12:43.190
  • GOING TO LIFT OFF.
  • 00:12:43.210 --> 00:12:45.270
  • AND I'M OKAY --I WANT OUT OF HERE ON THE FIRST LOAD
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:48.200
  • UP, BUT I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE UNTIL THE JOB IS DONE.
  • 00:12:48.220 --> 00:12:51.070
  • THE WORST EMPLOYEE IS SOMEBODY WHO QUITS BEFORE
  • 00:12:51.090 --> 00:12:53.130
  • THE TASK IS DONE, AND I'M IN IT TO FINISH THE COURSE.
  • 00:12:53.150 --> 00:12:57.180
  • I WANT TO RUN THE RACE THAT'S BEEN MARKED OUT
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:13:00.040
  • FOR ME, AND WHATEVER THAT MEANS I WANT TO BE
  • 00:13:00.060 --> 00:13:01.260
  • FAITHFUL IN THAT.
  • 00:13:01.280 --> 00:13:03.160
  • AND I SEE THAT IN MY ISRAELI FRIENDS.
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.160
  • IT'S A DIFFICULT PLACE TO LIVE.
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:07.130
  • IT'S A SACRIFICE.
  • 00:13:07.150 --> 00:13:09.060
  • THEIR KIDS ALL SERVE IN THE MILITARY.
  • 00:13:09.080 --> 00:13:11.020
  • IT'S A HARD PLACE TO LIVE, AND YET THEY
  • 00:13:11.040 --> 00:13:13.220
  • FLOURISH AND THEY'RE COMMITTED TO SOMETHING.
  • 00:13:13.240 --> 00:13:15.260
  • AND I BELIEVE GOD IS AWAKENING THAT IN
  • 00:13:15.280 --> 00:13:18.000
  • THE CHURCH.
  • 00:13:18.020 --> 00:13:19.220
  • A GENERATION OF THE CHURCH IN THE EARTH THAT
  • 00:13:19.240 --> 00:13:21.190
  • IS COMMITTED TO THE PURPOSES OF GOD AND THE
  • 00:13:21.210 --> 00:13:24.000
  • KINGDOM OF GOD WITH THE TENACITY TO COMPLETE THE
  • 00:13:24.020 --> 00:13:26.080
  • COURSE, IT'S GOING TO TAKE THAT CHURCH TO SEE
  • 00:13:26.100 --> 00:13:28.130
  • JESUS COME BACK.
  • 00:13:28.150 --> 00:13:30.010
  • - BEAUTIFUL. WOW. LOVE IT.
  • 00:13:30.030 --> 00:13:31.290
  • [ APPLAUSE ]- WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ISRAEL.
  • 00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:34.140
  • OUR GUEST, PASTOR ALLEN JACKSON, SENIOR PASTOR OF
  • 00:13:34.160 --> 00:13:39.060
  • WORLD OUTREACH CHURCH IN MURPHYSBORO WHICH IS
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:41.260
  • KIND OF THE NASHVILLE AREA.
  • 00:13:41.280 --> 00:13:44.050
  • - WHAT I LOVE ABOUT PASTOR JACKSON IS THAT HE
  • 00:13:44.070 --> 00:13:46.230
  • ALWAYS, AND YOU JUST SAID IT, HOW GOD'S WORD

  • THE FACT THAT CHRISTIANITY BEGAN, WAS A
  • 00:17:15.250 --> 00:17:17.250
  • SUBSET WITHIN JUDAISM.
  • 00:17:17.270 --> 00:17:20.010
  • THE FIRST BELIEVERS WERE ALL JEWISH.
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:22.280
  • OUR LOVE AND MESSIAH WAS A JEWISH MAN,
  • 00:17:23.000 --> 00:17:25.140
  • A JEWISH RABBI.
  • 00:17:25.160 --> 00:17:27.120
  • THE NEW JERUSALEM, WE'RE TOLD THE GATES INTO THAT

  • THAT THE CHRISTIAN HAVES A TREMENDOUS DEBT TO THE
  • 00:17:39.100 --> 00:17:41.020
  • JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:42.290
  • PAULA DRESSED IT IN THE BOOK OF ROMANS.
  • 00:17:43.010 --> 00:17:44.230
  • HE SAID, HAS GOD REJECTED THE JEWISH PEOPLE?
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:47.030
  • AND HE ANSWERS IN THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE WAY.
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:48.230
  • HE SAYS, GOD FORBID!
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:50.220

  • NINEVAH PLAINS.
  • 00:18:50.130 --> 00:18:52.060
  • - WE'RE WORKING EXTENSIVELY IN BOTH IRAQ
  • 00:18:52.080 --> 00:18:54.100

  • AMERICAN MEDIA.
  • 00:19:15.190 --> 00:19:17.030
  • WHEN THE CHRISTIANS ARE PERSECUTED, THERE'S

  • REALLY NO ONE TO STAND UP FOR THEM.
  • 00:19:18.160 --> 00:19:20.010
  • THERE'S NO GOVERNMENT THAT REALLY TAKES THAT PLACE.
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:21.250
  • I THINK IF THE JEWISH POPULATION AND SOME
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:24.050
  • NATION WERE BEING PERSECUTED THAT WAY, THE
  • 00:19:24.070 --> 00:19:26.110
  • ISRAELIS WOULD BE FIRING UP THE JETS.
  • 00:19:26.130 --> 00:19:28.100
  • - THE ISRAELI OFTEN SAY TO ME WHAT IS WRONG WITH
  • 00:19:28.120 --> 00:19:30.110
  • US IN THE WEST?

  • AND YET WE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING,

  • HOW ARE PEOPLE ARE BEING BEHEADED AND ARE DYING
  • 00:19:38.150 --> 00:19:41.200
  • FOR THEIR FAITH IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:19:41.220 --> 00:19:43.100
  • - TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IRAQ AND SYRIA.
  • 00:19:43.120 --> 00:19:45.280
  • I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN THAT PART OF THE WORLD A
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:47.260
  • LOT IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS.
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.180
  • - I'VE JUST COME OUT OF THE NINEVAH PLAINS WHICH
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:51.220
  • IS AN AREA IN IRAQ WHICH DATES ITS CHRISTIANITY
  • 00:19:51.240 --> 00:19:54.150

  • AND THEY DATE THEIR TIME FROM WHEN THOMAS THE
  • 00:20:03.100 --> 00:20:06.000
  • APOSTLE LEAVING JERUSALEM WHERE WE ARE NOW TRAVELED
  • 00:20:06.020 --> 00:20:10.050
  • INTO SYRIA AND IRAQ ON HIS WAY INTO CHINA AND

  • INDIA TELLING THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE RISEN CHRIST.
  • 00:20:14.040 --> 00:20:17.100
  • AND SO THIS IS THE COMMUNITY THAT WE'VE
  • 00:20:17.120 --> 00:20:20.080
  • WORKED WITH.
  • 00:20:20.100 --> 00:20:22.070
  • THAT I HAVE HAD A PRESENCE SINCE THE FIRST
  • 00:20:22.090 --> 00:20:24.270
  • CENTURY, BUT TODAY IN IRAQ WHERE THERE WAS
  • 00:20:24.290 --> 00:20:27.120
  • ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:30.040
  • 1.5 MILLION CHRISTIANS THERE ARE LESS THAN 200.000.
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:35.220
  • - 1.5 MILLION TO LESS THAN 200.000.
  • 00:20:35.240 --> 00:20:38.170
  • - IT'S A GENOCIDE.
  • 00:20:38.190 --> 00:20:40.170
  • - AND WE DON'T HEAR MUCH ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:20:40.190 --> 00:20:43.150
  • - WE DON'T HEAR ABOUT IT, AND WHAT I HEAR AND
  • 00:20:43.170 --> 00:20:45.250
  • WHAT I SEE ARE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT BEING
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:49.100
  • ABDUCTED, BEING BEHEADED FOR THEIR FAITH, BEING
  • 00:20:49.120 --> 00:20:53.270
  • TORTURED FOR THEIR FAITH, WOMEN AND CHILDREN BEING
  • 00:20:53.290 --> 00:20:57.240
  • TAKEN AS SEX SLAVES BECAUSE THEY ARE INFIDELS
  • 00:20:57.260 --> 00:21:01.210
  • AND DON'T BELIEVE IN THE KORAN.
  • 00:21:01.230 --> 00:21:05.000
  • AND MASS COMMUNITIES LEAVING THEIR VILLAGES
  • 00:21:05.020 --> 00:21:08.280
  • THAT THEY'VE LIVED IN FOR CENTURIES, CHURCHES THAT
  • 00:21:09.000 --> 00:21:11.210
  • THAT I HAVE HAD THEIR FOR CENTURIES IN MATTERS OF
  • 00:21:11.230 --> 00:21:14.200
  • HOURS AND ESCAPING THE AREA BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:21:14.220 --> 00:21:18.260
  • ATTACK IS BY THE ISLAMIC STATE AND OTHER SIMILAR
  • 00:21:18.280 --> 00:21:22.190
  • IDEOLOGIES THAT EXIST IN THE MIDDLE EAST TODAY.
  • 00:21:22.210 --> 00:21:24.280
  • IT'S NOT JUST THE ISLAMIC STATE.
  • 00:21:25.000 --> 00:21:27.240
  • - I KNOW YOU'VE MET A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:29.190
  • THERE'S SOME FASCINATING STORIES THAT YOU'VE
  • 00:21:29.210 --> 00:21:31.240
  • SHARED WITH ME ABOUT SOME OF THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES,
  • 00:21:31.260 --> 00:21:34.220
  • HOW GRATEFUL THEY ARE WHEN YOU SHOW UP WITH THE
  • 00:21:34.240 --> 00:21:36.260
  • AID TO KNOW THAT SOMEBODY CARES ABOUT THEM.
  • 00:21:36.280 --> 00:21:39.040
  • IT'S ONE THING TO SUFFER BUT TO HAVE AN AWARENESS
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:41.260
  • THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE FIGHTING ON YOUR BEHALF
  • 00:21:41.280 --> 00:21:44.140
  • AND MAKING AN EFFORT TO ALLEVIATE THE TRAUMA AND
  • 00:21:44.160 --> 00:21:47.270
  • PAIN IN YOUR LIFE MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:21:47.290 --> 00:21:50.110
  • - IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE, AND WE GO IN AND WE THINK
  • 00:21:50.130 --> 00:21:52.060
  • IT'S IMPORTANT TO STAND WITH THE SUFFERING CHURCH.
  • 00:21:52.080 --> 00:21:54.050
  • THE BIBLE SAYS IN CORINTHIANS IF ONE PART
  • 00:21:54.070 --> 00:21:55.150
  • SUFFERS, THEN ALL SUFFER.
  • 00:21:55.170 --> 00:21:58.010
  • AND SO WE GO IN WITH THE SUPPORT OF CHURCHES LIKE
  • 00:21:58.030 --> 00:22:00.100
  • WORLD OUTREACH, YOUR CHURCH, WE'RE ABLE TO GO
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:02.180
  • AND STAND WITH THEM IN THE NINEVAH PLAINS AND
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:04.270
  • HELP THEM REBUILD.
  • 00:22:04.290 --> 00:22:07.180
  • THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW.
  • 00:22:07.200 --> 00:22:09.210
  • WE'RE GOING IN, WORKING WITH THE FAMILIES THAT
  • 00:22:09.230 --> 00:22:12.030
  • WANT TO REMAIN, AND WE'RE HELPING THEM SO THEY CAN
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:14.040
  • STAY, REBUILD THEIR LIVES, TAKE BACK
  • 00:22:14.060 --> 00:22:16.170
  • THEIR CHURCHES AND REBUILD THEIR BUSINESSES
  • 00:22:16.190 --> 00:22:19.200
  • IN THIS AREA.
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:21.180
  • - THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO.
  • 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:23.100
  • THAT IS AN AMAZING STORY.
  • 00:22:23.120 --> 00:22:25.040
  • I THINK IT'S SO EASY FOR US AT HOME TO GET LOCKED
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:27.180
  • INTO OUR PAIN AND OUR PROBLEMS AND OUR
  • 00:22:27.200 --> 00:22:29.270
  • CHALLENGES AND THE DIFFICULTIES OF OUR
  • 00:22:29.290 --> 00:22:31.180
  • LIVES, OR MAYBE EVEN IF YOU'RE A BIT OF A
  • 00:22:31.200 --> 00:22:33.190
  • BIBLICAL SCHOLAR YOU KIND OF HEED JERUSALEM INTO
  • 00:22:33.210 --> 00:22:36.070
  • THE STORY AND YOU GET A PROPHETIC MIND SET, BUT WE
  • 00:22:36.090 --> 00:22:38.200
  • LEAVE OUT WHAT GOD IS DOING IN OUR GENERATION
  • 00:22:38.220 --> 00:22:40.180
  • WITH HIS PEOPLE ON A BROADER SCALE.
  • 00:22:40.200 --> 00:22:42.260
  • AND TO BE AWARE IS THE FIRST STEP.
  • 00:22:42.280 --> 00:22:45.130
  • TO PRAY IN A MEANING WAY, TO INTERCEDE, TO TAKE
  • 00:22:45.150 --> 00:22:48.080
  • TIME EVERY WEEK TO MAKE AN EFFORT TO CRY OUT
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:50.090
  • BEFORE THE LORD ON BEHALF OF THE PEOPLE, HIS CHURCH
  • 00:22:50.110 --> 00:22:52.160
  • IN THE EARTH.
  • 00:22:52.180 --> 00:22:54.050
  • WE'RE NOT POWERLESS.
  • 00:22:54.070 --> 00:22:56.110
  • - WE'RE NOT, AND WHEN I SPEAK TO THEM AND I SAY
  • 00:22:56.130 --> 00:22:59.250
  • TO THEM -AND THEY'RE LIVING IN REFUGEE CAMPS A
  • 00:22:59.270 --> 00:23:02.120
  • LOT OF THE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:23:02.140 --> 00:23:05.010
  • THEY HAVE FLED NORTH INTO NORTHERN PARTS OF IRAQ,
  • 00:23:05.030 --> 00:23:07.180
  • AND NOW THEY SAW TO ME WHEN WE ASK, WHAT CAN WE DO?
  • 00:23:07.200 --> 00:23:12.230
  • AND THEY SAY PRAY.
  • 00:23:12.250 --> 00:23:15.180
  • PRAY FOR THE CHURCH.
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:18.010
  • DON'T FORGET THE SUFFERING CHURCH.
  • 00:23:18.030 --> 00:23:19.240
  • AND WE CAN PUT AND WE CAN STAND WITH THEM.
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:21.210
  • AND THAT'S WHY IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE BE
  • 00:23:21.230 --> 00:23:23.170
  • THERE AND WE GO AND GIVE THEM HELP AS WELL.
  • 00:23:23.190 --> 00:23:24.280
  • - I WANT TO BE SURE YOU'RE SAYING AS AN
  • 00:23:25.000 --> 00:23:27.100
  • ISRAELI AND SOMEONE THAT VISITS IRAQ AND SYRIA AND
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:28.270
  • THE SUDANESE, THE PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:32.290
  • THAT THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF
  • 00:23:33.010 --> 00:23:35.060
  • THAT STORY.
  • 00:23:35.080 --> 00:23:37.010
  • - CRITICAL.
  • 00:23:37.030 --> 00:23:39.240
  • THEY PRAY AND THEY SUPPORT, BUT THEY ALSO
  • 00:23:39.260 --> 00:23:43.200
  • STAND FOR SOMETHING, AND IT'S THE VALUES THAT WE
  • 00:23:43.220 --> 00:23:45.030
  • ARE FIGHTING FOR IN THE MIDST EAST AND NORTH AFRICA.
  • 00:23:45.050 --> 00:23:46.240
  • AND I WOULD SAY WHEREVER YOU HAVE RELIGIOUS
  • 00:23:46.260 --> 00:23:48.190
  • FREEDOM YOU HAVE OTHER RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS THAT
  • 00:23:48.210 --> 00:23:50.180
  • COME FROM THAT.
  • 00:23:50.200 --> 00:23:52.200
  • BUT THE CANARY IN THE MINE SHAFT IS THE
  • 00:23:52.220 --> 00:23:54.040
  • RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ISSUE.
  • 00:23:54.060 --> 00:23:56.020
  • SO FIGHT FOR THAT AND VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO FIGHT
  • 00:23:56.040 --> 00:23:59.230
  • FOR THAT, TOO.
  • 00:23:59.250 --> 00:24:01.100

  • STATISTICS SPEAKING.

  • IN ISRAEL WHEN THINGS ARE QUIET LIKE NOW, WHEN
  • 00:24:56.150 --> 00:24:58.210
  • THINGS ARE PEACEFUL, YOUR CHANCE OF BEING INVOLVED
  • 00:24:58.230 --> 00:25:02.040
  • IN ANY KIND OF VIOLENT ATTACK IT IS MINUSCULE TO

  • ANY BIG CITY WORLDWIDE.
  • 00:25:04.200 --> 00:25:06.290

  • 00:27:00.240 --> 00:27:03.130
  • COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT IT USED TO BE.
  • 00:27:03.150 --> 00:27:06.280
  • - I LOVE WHAT YOU SAID.
  • 00:27:07.000 --> 00:27:09.020
  • MAYBE YOU CAN EXPAND ON IT JUST A BIT THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:27:09.040 --> 00:27:11.030
  • JEWISH, BUT YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS AS MESSIAH.
  • 00:27:11.050 --> 00:27:12.280
  • ONE DOESN'T DIMINISH THE OTHER.
  • 00:27:13.000 --> 00:27:14.180
  • - YEAH. DEFINITELY.
  • 00:27:14.200 --> 00:27:16.200
  • SO THE TWO -IT'S SORT OF HARD TO EXPLAIN AND I'LL
  • 00:27:16.220 --> 00:27:18.190
  • TRY TO BREAK IT DOWN.
  • 00:27:18.210 --> 00:27:20.180
  • BEING JEWISH IS SORT OF SAYING LIKE I'M -IT'S
  • 00:27:20.200 --> 00:27:22.240
  • MORE THAN SAYING I'M CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:27:22.260 --> 00:27:24.130
  • IT DOESN'T REALLY COMPARE BECAUSE IT'S BOTH A
  • 00:27:24.150 --> 00:27:26.130
  • NATIONALITY AND IT'S A HERITAGE AND A HISTORY
  • 00:27:26.150 --> 00:27:28.080
  • AND A RELIGION AND A FAITH OR ALL OF THE ABOVE
  • 00:27:28.100 --> 00:27:30.180
  • OR JUST ONE OF THE ABOVE.
  • 00:27:30.200 --> 00:27:32.260
  • SO IT'S PART OF OUR IDENTITY IN A VERY DEEP
  • 00:27:32.280 --> 00:27:35.090
  • WAY IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:27:35.110 --> 00:27:38.090
  • BEING JEWISH IS A BIG PART OF BEING ISRAELI FOR
  • 00:27:38.110 --> 00:27:40.070
  • MOST PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY, EXCEPT FOR
  • 00:27:40.090 --> 00:27:42.150
  • SEVERAL MINORITIES, AND IT'S PART OF OUR FAITH
  • 00:27:42.170 --> 00:27:45.200
  • AND THE WAY WE PERCEIVE OURSELVES, AND THEN YOU
  • 00:27:45.220 --> 00:27:48.020
  • TIE THAT INTO BELIEVING IN YESHUA AND JESUS, IT
  • 00:27:48.040 --> 00:27:51.100
  • DOESN'T STOP WHO I AM.
  • 00:27:51.120 --> 00:27:53.280
  • IT JUST SORT OF MAKES IT EVEN MORE POWERFUL
  • 00:27:54.000 --> 00:27:56.040
  • BECAUSE I CAN BELIEVE IN A MESSIAH AS A JEW IN THE
  • 00:27:56.060 --> 00:27:58.200
  • LAND OF ISRAEL THAT'S OF RESTORED BY GOD, YOU
  • 00:27:58.220 --> 00:28:00.250
  • KNOW, AS THE BIBLE PROPHESIES, SO IT'S ALL
  • 00:28:00.270 --> 00:28:03.280
  • THESE THINGS TOGETHER, AND THAT'S SORT OF WHO WE
  • 00:28:04.000 --> 00:28:06.270
  • ARE AS A COMMUNITY.
  • 00:28:06.290 --> 00:28:09.040
  • - YOU ALSO WORK HELPING CHRISTIANS WHO VISIT THE
  • 00:28:09.060 --> 00:28:10.290
  • LAND CREATE A LOT OF FILM AND DOCUMENTARIES.
  • 00:28:11.010 --> 00:28:12.230
  • A LOT OF CREATIVE THINGS HAPPENING HERE.
  • 00:28:12.250 --> 00:28:13.290
  • - DEFINITELY.
  • 00:28:14.010 --> 00:28:15.130
  • I THINK ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL THINGS THAT
  • 00:28:15.150 --> 00:28:17.170
  • HAPPENS TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY COME TO ISRAEL IS
  • 00:28:17.190 --> 00:28:19.220
  • IT'S NOT-- PEOPLE SAY THE BIBLE COMES TO LIFE.
  • 00:28:19.240 --> 00:28:22.020
  • IT DOES, BUT IT'S MORE THAN THAT. IT'S THE
  • 00:28:22.040 --> 00:28:24.120
  • FULFILLMENT OF THE BIBLE THAT COMES TO LIFE.
  • 00:28:24.140 --> 00:28:26.220
  • YOU SEE THE RESTORATION OF ALL THESE THINGS THAT
  • 00:28:26.240 --> 00:28:28.200
  • GOD HAS PROPHESIED: THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 00:28:28.220 --> 00:28:30.160
  • THE LANGUAGE, THE WATER, THE LAND,
  • 00:28:30.180 --> 00:28:32.290
  • IT'S ALL COMING TO LIFE.
  • 00:28:33.010 --> 00:28:34.150
  • IT IS SUPERNATURAL ON MULTIPLE LEVELS.
  • 00:28:34.170 --> 00:28:37.210
  • THEN YOU GET TO EXPERIENCE THAT, AND WALK
  • 00:28:37.230 --> 00:28:40.010
  • THROUGH IT, AND TALK TO THE PEOPLE, AND SEE
  • 00:28:40.030 --> 00:28:42.140
  • SOMETHING THAT FOR MILLENNIA PEOPLE JUST
  • 00:28:42.160 --> 00:28:45.230
  • PRAYED AND LONGED FOR AND THEN TO SEE THAT COME TO
  • 00:28:45.250 --> 00:28:48.220
  • LIFE. THEN IT'S ALL COMING TOGETHER.
  • 00:28:48.240 --> 00:28:51.150
  • I SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE REALLY BEING TAKEN ABACK
  • 00:28:51.170 --> 00:28:55.120
  • BY HOW INTIMATE THEIR EXPERIENCE WAS, SEEING
  • 00:28:55.140 --> 00:28:58.000
  • SORT OF THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE COME TO LIFE,
  • 00:28:58.020 --> 00:29:00.230
  • AND THEY'RE IN THE SAME PLACE WHERE YESHUA JESUS
  • 00:29:00.250 --> 00:29:03.220
  • WALKED, THEY'RE EXPERIENCING FAITH IN THE
  • 00:29:03.240 --> 00:29:06.190
  • LAND, IT'S REALLY-- IT'S A HUGE IMPACT FOR A LOT
  • 00:29:06.210 --> 00:29:10.160
  • OF PEOPLE. AND THE STORIES THAT HAPPEN HERE ARE
  • 00:29:10.180 --> 00:29:12.190
  • JUST SO MEANINGFUL ON SO MANY LEVELS.
  • 00:29:12.210 --> 00:29:14.190
  • AGAIN, IT'S THE PROPHECY, AND THEN THE LAND COMING
  • 00:29:14.210 --> 00:29:17.280
  • TO LIFE, THE BIBLE SORT OF LIKE, IT'S JUMPING OUT
  • 00:29:18.000 --> 00:29:20.200
  • OF THE BOOK FOR SO MANY PEOPLE.
  • 00:29:20.220 --> 00:29:23.070
  • - GOD CHOSE THE JEWISH PEOPLE WITHOUT QUESTION,
  • 00:29:23.090 --> 00:29:25.170
  • AND THERE'S BEEN A TREMENDOUS BLESSING AND
  • 00:29:25.190 --> 00:29:27.210
  • BENEFIT TO THAT, BUT THERE'S ALSO BEEN A
  • 00:29:27.230 --> 00:29:29.250
  • TREMENDOUS PRICE, AND I SEE THAT EVEN TODAY.
  • 00:29:29.270 --> 00:29:32.230
  • ISRAEL IS FLOURISHING, THE NATION'S PROSPERING,
  • 00:29:32.250 --> 00:29:35.120
  • BUT YOU'RE DOING IT AT A TREMENDOUS PRICE.
  • 00:29:35.140 --> 00:29:38.010
  • YOUR YOUNG PEOPLE STAND GUARD.
  • 00:29:38.030 --> 00:29:40.080
  • WHEN YOU GRADUATE SCHOOL, YOU GO INTO THE MILITARY.
  • 00:29:40.100 --> 00:29:42.210
  • TO LIVE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TODAY, TO BE
  • 00:29:42.230 --> 00:29:45.270
  • JEWISH AND LIVE HERE IS STILL A SACRIFICE, AND I
  • 00:29:45.290 --> 00:29:47.280
  • RESPECT YOU FOR THAT.
  • 00:29:48.000 --> 00:29:49.280
  • AND I THINK THERE'S A MESSAGE FOR GOD'S PEOPLE
  • 00:29:50.000 --> 00:29:51.210
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT GOD'S BLESSINGS DON'T
  • 00:29:51.230 --> 00:29:53.180
  • COME TO US WITHOUT COST, THAT WE HAVE TO DO OUR
  • 00:29:53.200 --> 00:29:56.110
  • PART, WE HAVE TO STAND GUARD, WE HAVE TO WATCH
  • 00:29:56.130 --> 00:29:58.080
  • OVER OUR VALUES, GUARD OUR HEARTS.
  • 00:29:58.100 --> 00:30:00.070
  • - IF YOU LOOK AT WHERE WE ARE IN ISRAEL, PEOPLE
  • 00:30:00.090 --> 00:30:03.140
  • HAVE BEEN RESTORED TO THE LAND, THE LANGUAGE HAS
  • 00:30:03.160 --> 00:30:05.200
  • BEEN RESTORED, THE FAITH HAS BEEN RESTORED TO THE
  • 00:30:05.220 --> 00:30:07.180
  • JEWISH PEOPLE TO A CERTAIN DEGREE.
  • 00:30:07.200 --> 00:30:09.260
  • NONE OF IT COMES EASY, BUT IT HAS A VALUE TO IT
  • 00:30:09.280 --> 00:30:13.030
  • AND WHERE WE'RE GOING WHICH IS THE RESTORATION
  • 00:30:13.050 --> 00:30:14.280
  • OF GOD'S WILL IN THIS LAND AND AN EXTENSION OF IT TO
  • 00:30:15.000 --> 00:30:17.120
  • THE REST OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:30:17.140 --> 00:30:19.020
  • THAT'S SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
  • 00:30:19.040 --> 00:30:20.240
  • PERSONALLY, THROUGH MY KIDS, THROUGH OUR
  • 00:30:20.260 --> 00:30:22.190
  • FAMILIES, IT'S WORTH SUFFERING FOR AND
  • 00:30:22.210 --> 00:30:24.160
  • SWEATING THROUGH AND STRIVING THROUGH JUST TO
  • 00:30:24.180 --> 00:30:27.250
  • GET TO THAT, THAT GOAL THAT'S SET BEFORE US.
  • 00:30:27.270 --> 00:30:31.050
  • AND THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS EXACTLY THAT.
  • 00:30:31.070 --> 00:30:33.050
  • I FEEL LIKE ONE OF THE VALUES WE CARRY IN THIS
  • 00:30:33.070 --> 00:30:36.170
  • LAND IS THE FACT THAT PEOPLE HERE KNOW WE'RE
  • 00:30:36.190 --> 00:30:38.130
  • FIGHTING FOR SOMETHING.
  • 00:30:38.150 --> 00:30:40.020
  • WE'RE NOT JUST SUFFERING FOR THE SAKE OF SUFFERING.
  • 00:30:40.040 --> 00:30:42.050
  • THAT'S RELIGION. WE'RE SUFFERING FOR THE SAKE OF
  • 00:30:42.070 --> 00:30:44.200
  • OUR DESTINY AS A PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:44.220 --> 00:30:46.220
  • IF YOU'LL-- EVEN PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE A PERSONAL
  • 00:30:46.240 --> 00:30:49.160
  • ENCOUNTER WITH GOD IN ISRAEL, THEY KNOW WE HAVE
  • 00:30:49.180 --> 00:30:52.010
  • A CALLING AS A PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:52.030 --> 00:30:53.190
  • AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT POLES ABOUT SATISFACTION
  • 00:30:53.210 --> 00:30:56.000
  • AND HAPPINESS IN ISRAEL, IT'S ALWAYS ABNORMALLY
  • 00:30:56.020 --> 00:30:58.100
  • HIGH. IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:30:58.120 --> 00:31:00.050
  • THE REASON IS BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE THIS
  • 00:31:00.070 --> 00:31:02.040
  • COLLECTIVE DIRECTION WHERE WE'RE HEADING AT,
  • 00:31:02.060 --> 00:31:05.160
  • WHICH IS WE KNOW WE HAVE A CALLING AS A PEOPLE IN
  • 00:31:05.180 --> 00:31:08.000
  • THE LAND OF ISRAEL IN ETERNITY ALMOST,
  • 00:31:08.020 --> 00:31:11.110
  • JUST GOING FORWARD AS A PEOPLE.
  • 00:31:11.130 --> 00:31:13.120
  • EVERYONE'S HEART IN THIS LAND I FEEL LIKE WE CARRY IT
  • 00:31:13.140 --> 00:31:15.260
  • TO A CERTAIN DEGREE.
  • 00:31:15.280 --> 00:31:17.270
  • - THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING
  • 00:31:17.290 --> 00:31:18.250
  • IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:31:18.270 --> 00:31:20.110
  • YOU'RE A BLESSING TO US AND A STRENGTH TO US.
  • 00:31:20.130 --> 00:31:22.280
  • I HAVE VERY SPECIAL FRIENDS WITH ME.
  • 00:31:23.220 --> 00:31:26.020
  • AMBASSADOR DANNY AYALON AND HIS WIFE ANNE.
  • 00:31:26.040 --> 00:31:29.010
  • THEY HAVEN'T JUST READ ABOUT HISTORY;
  • 00:31:29.030 --> 00:31:31.060
  • THEY HAVE HELPED BE A PART OF HISTORY.
  • 00:31:31.080 --> 00:31:33.240
  • THEY SERVED AS AMBASSADORS FROM ISRAEL
  • 00:31:33.260 --> 00:31:36.000
  • TO THE UNITED STATES. DANNY WAS A DEPUTY MINISTER
  • 00:31:36.020 --> 00:31:39.000
  • FOR THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS HERE.
  • 00:31:39.020 --> 00:31:40.270
  • HE SERVED WITH THREE SEPARATE PRIME MINISTERS.
  • 00:31:40.290 --> 00:31:44.080
  • THEY HAVE BEEN DILIGENT ADVOCATES FOR THE NATION
  • 00:31:44.100 --> 00:31:46.090
  • OF ISRAEL, BUT THEY'RE ALSO GREAT FRIENDS
  • 00:31:46.110 --> 00:31:47.250
  • OF THE CHURCH.
  • 00:31:47.270 --> 00:31:49.160
  • IT'S MY HONOR TO WELCOME YOU TO THE PROGRAM TODAY.
  • 00:31:49.180 --> 00:31:51.230
  • IT'S GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.
  • 00:31:51.250 --> 00:31:52.250
  • - THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 00:31:52.270 --> 00:31:54.080
  • IT'S ALSO OUR PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU.
  • 00:31:54.100 --> 00:31:56.150
  • - YOU SPEND A GREAT DEAL OF TIME THESE DAYS
  • 00:31:56.170 --> 00:31:58.130
  • WORKING ALL OVER THE WORLD, REALLY, BEING A
  • 00:31:58.150 --> 00:32:00.160
  • VOICE FOR ISRAEL AND HELPING-- I WOULDN'T SAY
  • 00:32:00.180 --> 00:32:03.260
  • WE HAVE FAKE NEWS, BUT I THINK WE CERTAINLY HAVE A
  • 00:32:03.280 --> 00:32:05.220
  • LOT OF MISINFORMATION IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:32:05.240 --> 00:32:07.110
  • - YES, UNFORTUNATELY WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN THE
  • 00:32:07.130 --> 00:32:11.090
  • LAST, I WOULD SAY, TWO DECADES IS THAT OUR
  • 00:32:11.110 --> 00:32:14.220
  • ENEMIES AND RIGHT NOW-- I CANNOT CALL THEM
  • 00:32:14.240 --> 00:32:17.020
  • ANYTHING BUT ENEMIES UNFORTUNATELY, ALTHOUGH
  • 00:32:17.040 --> 00:32:19.080
  • WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND AND WE HAVE EXTENDED OUR
  • 00:32:19.100 --> 00:32:21.050
  • HANDS IN PEACE TOWARD THE PALESTINIANS, TO MUSLIMS,
  • 00:32:21.070 --> 00:32:24.290
  • TO ARABS ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT THE
  • 00:32:25.010 --> 00:32:26.290
  • PALESTINIANS HAVE NOT GRABBED THESE HANDS.
  • 00:32:27.010 --> 00:32:28.270
  • ON THE CONTRARY.
  • 00:32:28.290 --> 00:32:30.040
  • THEY TRIED TO PUSH US INTO THE SEA MANY TIMES,
  • 00:32:30.060 --> 00:32:32.020
  • AND THEY COULD NOT DO IT MILITARILY.
  • 00:32:32.040 --> 00:32:33.230
  • NOW THEY MOVED THE THEATER OR THE ATTACKS TO
  • 00:32:33.250 --> 00:32:38.000
  • THE REALM OF SOCIAL MEDIA, TO POLITICS.
  • 00:32:38.020 --> 00:32:42.250
  • THEY CALL IT A POLITICAL WAR.
  • 00:32:42.270 --> 00:32:44.170
  • AND THIS IS AS DANGEROUS AS IS A MILITARY BECAUSE
  • 00:32:44.190 --> 00:32:49.160
  • IT IS DESIGNED TO POISON HEARTS AND MINDS OF MANY
  • 00:32:49.180 --> 00:32:54.070
  • MANY PEOPLE AND TRY TO SET THEM AGAINST ISRAEL
  • 00:32:54.090 --> 00:32:57.100
  • AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:32:57.120 --> 00:32:59.090
  • UNFORTUNATELY, AT SOME PLACES THEY DO SUCCEED,
  • 00:32:59.110 --> 00:33:03.230
  • CERTAINLY IN THE MUSLIM WORLD, BUT ALSO IN MANY
  • 00:33:03.250 --> 00:33:06.130
  • COUNTRIES IN EUROPE, AND THEY ARE NOW TRYING TO
  • 00:33:06.150 --> 00:33:10.180
  • MOVE THIS WAR INTO THE UNITED STATES CALLING FOR
  • 00:33:10.200 --> 00:33:15.160
  • BOYCOTTING ISRAEL, CALLING ISRAEL ALL KINDS
  • 00:33:15.180 --> 00:33:18.050
  • OF NAMES, AND TRYING TO SET AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:33:18.070 --> 00:33:20.260
  • ARE OUR BEST FRIENDS AND ALLY, HAVE ALWAYS BEEN,
  • 00:33:20.280 --> 00:33:23.120
  • TRYING TO SET THEM AGAINST US.
  • 00:33:23.140 --> 00:33:25.100
  • AND ONCE THEY-- IF GOD FORBID THEY MAKE A
  • 00:33:25.120 --> 00:33:30.080
  • SUCCESS WITH DRIVING A WEDGE BETWEEN US AND THE
  • 00:33:30.100 --> 00:33:32.090
  • AMERICANS, THEN IT'S BAD FOR ALL OF US.
  • 00:33:32.110 --> 00:33:34.160
  • - WE WILL ALL SUFFER.
  • 00:33:34.180 --> 00:33:36.020
  • - ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:33:36.040 --> 00:33:37.250
  • - ISRAEL IS UNIQUE IN THIS REGION IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:33:37.270 --> 00:33:39.200
  • - IT IS UNIQUE.
  • 00:33:39.220 --> 00:33:41.060
  • THERE IS ONLY ONE JEWISH STATE IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:33:41.080 --> 00:33:45.010
  • WE ARE SURROUNDED HERE BY 22 ARAB COUNTRIES.
  • 00:33:45.030 --> 00:33:48.100
  • THEY ARE 57 MUSLIM COUNTRIES ALL TOGETHER.
  • 00:33:48.120 --> 00:33:52.000
  • SO THE PALESTINIANS CANNOT CLAIM THAT THIS IS
  • 00:33:52.020 --> 00:33:54.180
  • A FIGHT ON TERRITORY.
  • 00:33:54.200 --> 00:33:57.010
  • THIS IS NOT A TERRITORIAL CONFLICT.
  • 00:33:57.030 --> 00:33:58.290
  • UNFORTUNATELY, THEY JUST NOT WANT US HERE.
  • 00:33:59.010 --> 00:34:02.130
  • THEY WANT A JEWISH FREE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:34:02.150 --> 00:34:05.240
  • AND ON TOP OF THAT, IF GOD FORBID THERE WASN'T
  • 00:34:05.260 --> 00:34:11.290
  • THE STATE OF ISRAEL, WE ARE, IF YOU LOOK AT THE
  • 00:34:12.010 --> 00:34:14.090
  • MAP, WE ARE THE ONLY BUFFER BETWEEN RADICAL
  • 00:34:14.110 --> 00:34:17.130
  • ISLAM AND EUROPE, AND THEN OVER TO THE UNITED
  • 00:34:17.150 --> 00:34:21.050
  • STATES, AND I THINK THIS IS ALSO SOMETHING THAT
  • 00:34:21.070 --> 00:34:23.060
  • THEY ARE CONCENTRATING ALL THEIR EFFORTS,
  • 00:34:23.080 --> 00:34:25.150
  • NOT JUST TO MAKE A HOMOGENEOUS MIDDLE EAST
  • 00:34:25.170 --> 00:34:29.170
  • AND ETHNICALLY CLEANSED FROM JEWS, BUT ALSO THEY
  • 00:34:29.190 --> 00:34:33.130
  • WANT TO GAIN THIS STRATEGIC PIECE OF LAND,
  • 00:34:33.150 --> 00:34:37.100
  • THIS HOLY LAND ALSO AS A STEPPINGSTONE OR AS A
  • 00:34:37.120 --> 00:34:41.120
  • LAUNCHING PAD FOR MORE ATTACKS ON EUROPE.
  • 00:34:41.140 --> 00:34:46.110
  • - WELL, THERE HASN'T BEEN A JEWISH FREE MIDDLE
  • 00:34:46.130 --> 00:34:49.070
  • EAST IN A LONG LONG TIME.
  • 00:34:49.090 --> 00:34:51.010
  • - THIS IS TRUE.
  • 00:34:51.030 --> 00:34:53.130
  • - SO I THINK IT'S REALLY A MISREPRESENTATION OF
  • 00:34:53.150 --> 00:34:55.250
  • HISTORY AND UNHEALTHY DESIRE TO THINK WE WANT
  • 00:34:55.270 --> 00:34:58.180
  • TO DO THAT AGAIN.
  • 00:34:58.200 --> 00:35:00.100
  • - ABSOLUTELY BECAUSE WE TALK HISTORY, WE ARE THE
  • 00:35:00.120 --> 00:35:03.290
  • INDIGENOUS PEOPLE HERE, AND WE'RE JUST IN THE
  • 00:35:04.010 --> 00:35:06.170
  • BACKDROP OF MOUNT MORIAH WHERE TWO JEWISH TEMPLES
  • 00:35:06.190 --> 00:35:11.050
  • WERE BUILT, WHERE ABRAHAM ALMOST SACRIFICED ISAAC.
  • 00:35:11.070 --> 00:35:17.130
  • AND IF YOU LOOK AND DIG DOWN, WE DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:35:17.150 --> 00:35:20.140
  • DIG VERY DEEP TO DISCOVER 4000 YEARS OF RICH JEWISH
  • 00:35:20.160 --> 00:35:27.060
  • CULTURE. AND IT'S NOT JUST IN JERUSALEM;
  • 00:35:27.080 --> 00:35:29.060
  • IT'S THROUGHOUT THE LAND.
  • 00:35:29.080 --> 00:35:30.170
  • IT'S IN BETHEL AND SHILOH, AND IT'S MOUNT
  • 00:35:30.190 --> 00:35:33.020
  • TABOR AND ANYWHERE YOU CAN JUST THINK OF.
  • 00:35:33.040 --> 00:35:36.160
  • CERTAINLY RIGHT HERE IN JERUSALEM.
  • 00:35:36.180 --> 00:35:38.140
  • IT IS TRUE THAT WITH MUSLIM AND THE ARAB
  • 00:35:38.160 --> 00:35:41.280
  • OCCUPATION OF THE MIDDLE EAST IN THE SEVENTH
  • 00:35:42.000 --> 00:35:45.190
  • CENTURY, THEY CAME BY THE SWORD AND INDEED THEY
  • 00:35:45.210 --> 00:35:48.160
  • TOOK OVER BY FORCE.
  • 00:35:48.180 --> 00:35:51.180
  • BUT GOD ALWAYS PREVAILS, JUST AS WE HAVE ALWAYS
  • 00:35:51.200 --> 00:35:56.210
  • STAYED, ALWAYS THERE WAS A REMNANT, A JEWISH
  • 00:35:56.230 --> 00:36:00.060
  • CONTINUITY IN JERUSALEM AND IN THIS LAND.
  • 00:36:00.080 --> 00:36:03.020
  • THERE ALWAYS WAS A SURVIVAL AND COMING BACK,
  • 00:36:03.040 --> 00:36:07.230
  • AND THIS IS THE THIRD COMING BACK, THE THIRD
  • 00:36:07.250 --> 00:36:10.230
  • TEMPLE AFTER THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TWO
  • 00:36:10.250 --> 00:36:12.220
  • TEMPLES, THE REESTABLISHMENT OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS
  • 00:36:12.240 --> 00:36:17.020
  • THE BUILDING OF THE THIRD TEMPLE.
  • 00:36:17.040 --> 00:36:20.050
  • AND IT IS A MIRACLE AGAINST ALL ODDS AND
  • 00:36:20.070 --> 00:36:23.260
  • AGAINST MAJOR MAJOR ENEMIES THAT WERE
  • 00:36:23.280 --> 00:36:33.030
  • OUTNUMBERING US PROBABLY A THOUSAND TO ONE.
  • 00:36:33.050 --> 00:36:37.220
  • THERE WERE 600.000 JEWS HERE IN 1948 WHEN
  • 00:36:37.240 --> 00:36:40.260
  • WE REESTABLISHED, AND WE WERE SURROUNDED BY
  • 00:36:40.280 --> 00:36:43.150
  • 100 MILLION HOSTILE ARABS THAT ATTACKED US THE VERY
  • 00:36:43.170 --> 00:36:47.230
  • DAY WE DECLARED OUR INDEPENDENCE, AND WE
  • 00:36:47.250 --> 00:36:50.250
  • SURVIVED. NOT ONLY WE SURVIVED, WE THRIVED.
  • 00:36:50.270 --> 00:36:53.160
  • AND IF WE JUST FAST FORWARD TO WHERE WE ARE
  • 00:36:53.180 --> 00:36:56.100
  • TODAY, ISRAEL IS REALLY BUILT TO THE GLORY OF THE
  • 00:36:56.120 --> 00:36:59.170
  • PROMISE OF GOD AND THE PROPHECIES
  • 00:36:59.190 --> 00:37:02.170
  • OF ALL OUR PROPHETS.
  • 00:37:02.190 --> 00:37:04.140
  • AND WE ARE A VIBRANT COUNTRY, AND JERUSALEM,
  • 00:37:04.160 --> 00:37:09.130
  • IT'S A COUNTRY, IT'S A CITY NOW FOR THE FIRST
  • 00:37:09.150 --> 00:37:12.230
  • TIME SINCE THE JEWS TOOK OVER WHICH IS OPEN
  • 00:37:12.250 --> 00:37:16.200
  • FOR ALL RELIGIONS.
  • 00:37:16.220 --> 00:37:18.220
  • AND IT'S A CITY THAT WELCOMES EVERYBODY.
  • 00:37:18.240 --> 00:37:22.240
  • AND THIS IS ALSO THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:37:22.260 --> 00:37:25.270
  • SO THIS IS WHY I DECIDED THAT AGAINST THIS
  • 00:37:25.290 --> 00:37:31.100
  • PROPAGANDA AND LIES AND INCITEMENT THAT IS THROWN
  • 00:37:31.120 --> 00:37:34.290
  • AT US BY PALESTINIANS, THEIR COLLABORATORS, AND
  • 00:37:35.010 --> 00:37:38.180
  • ALSO BY MANY MANY ILL-INFORMED PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:37:38.200 --> 00:37:42.080
  • HAVE JUST BOUGHT THE PROPAGANDA OF THE
  • 00:37:42.100 --> 00:37:45.020
  • PALESTINIANS. AND THE PALESTINIANS ARE USING THIS
  • 00:37:45.040 --> 00:37:47.210
  • VERY INTENSE PROPAGANDA WHICH IS AKIN ONLY TO
  • 00:37:47.230 --> 00:37:51.010
  • THE NAZI PROPAGANDAS.
  • 00:37:51.030 --> 00:37:55.020
  • GOEBBELS IN THE 30'S AND 40'S AND HIS TEACHING WAS
  • 00:37:55.040 --> 00:38:02.080
  • VERY VERY SIMPLE: YOU REPEAT A LIE A THOUSAND
  • 00:38:02.100 --> 00:38:05.260
  • TIMES, IT BECOMES THE TRUTH.
  • 00:38:05.280 --> 00:38:07.140
  • AND UNFORTUNATELY, THE STATE OF ISRAEL, WE DID
  • 00:38:07.160 --> 00:38:09.070
  • NOT REALIZE THAT PROPAGANDA IS A VERY
  • 00:38:09.090 --> 00:38:13.150
  • NEFARIOUS AND IS VERY VERY DANGEROUS.
  • 00:38:13.170 --> 00:38:16.270
  • WE WERE THINKING, AND STILL TODAY MANY ISRAELIS
  • 00:38:16.290 --> 00:38:19.260
  • THINK, WELL, THE TRUTH STANDS FOR ITSELF.
  • 00:38:19.280 --> 00:38:22.240
  • WE DO NOT HAVE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH.
  • 00:38:22.260 --> 00:38:24.250
  • BUT PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT IN THE KNOW, WHO DO NOT COME
  • 00:38:24.270 --> 00:38:27.210
  • AND VISIT, THEY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING BETTER, SO
  • 00:38:27.230 --> 00:38:30.260
  • THEY LISTEN TO THIS THOUSANDS OF MESSAGES OF
  • 00:38:30.280 --> 00:38:34.290
  • INCITEMENTS AGAINST US. THIS IS WHY I DECIDED
  • 00:38:35.010 --> 00:38:37.120
  • WE HAVE TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT.
  • 00:38:37.140 --> 00:38:39.050
  • THIS IS WHY ANNE AND ME CREATED AND BUILT "THE
  • 00:38:39.070 --> 00:38:43.130
  • TRUTH ABOUT ISRAEL" WHICH IS A NONPROFIT, AND IT'S
  • 00:38:43.150 --> 00:38:47.240
  • DESIGNED TO STAND UP AGAINST ALL THE LIES AND
  • 00:38:47.260 --> 00:38:50.150
  • TO PRESENT THE TRUTH.
  • 00:38:50.170 --> 00:38:53.040
  • AND IT HAS BEEN VERY EFFECTIVE BECAUSE WE ARE
  • 00:38:53.060 --> 00:38:55.180
  • WORKING THROUGH EDUCATION AND TEACHING AND WITH
  • 00:38:55.200 --> 00:39:02.020
  • VERY VERY SHORT CLIPS THAT GO VIRAL OVER THE
  • 00:39:02.040 --> 00:39:05.060
  • INTERNET, AND MILLIONS HAVE WATCHED IT ALREADY.
  • 00:39:05.080 --> 00:39:08.290
  • AND THIS IS IN MY MIND THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THIS
  • 00:39:09.010 --> 00:39:13.030
  • INCITEMENT, TO CREATE ENOUGH MASS, CRITICAL
  • 00:39:13.050 --> 00:39:17.270
  • MASS IN THE WEBSITE THAT WILL JUST SPELL OUT THE
  • 00:39:17.290 --> 00:39:22.030
  • TRUTH. AND IF WE DO IT CONSISTENTLY, I BELIEVE
  • 00:39:22.050 --> 00:39:27.020
  • THE PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND WHO IS TALKING
  • 00:39:27.040 --> 00:39:29.230
  • THE TRUTH AND WHO IS LYING.
  • 00:39:29.250 --> 00:39:31.290
  • - THAT'S A WONDERFUL SET OF VIDEOS.
  • 00:39:32.010 --> 00:39:34.000
  • THERE'S A WEBSITE, THETRUTHABOUTISRAEL.GOV.IL.
  • 00:39:34.020 --> 00:39:38.010
  • - DOT ORG. - DOT ORG. I'M SORRY.
  • 00:39:38.030 --> 00:39:40.220
  • .ORG.IL. BUT THERE'S A WHOLE HOST OF VIDEOS THERE THAT
  • 00:39:40.240 --> 00:39:45.070
  • VERY CREATIVELY AND INNOVATIVELY EXPLAIN THE
  • 00:39:45.090 --> 00:39:48.030
  • HISTORY AND THE POLITICS OF THE MIDDLE EAST AND
  • 00:39:48.050 --> 00:39:50.020
  • THE CURRENT MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:39:50.040 --> 00:39:51.240
  • YOU CAN SHARE THEM WITH YOUR FRIENDS.
  • 00:39:51.260 --> 00:39:53.030
  • THEY'RE A GREAT TOOL. BUT YOU MENTIONED ANNE.
  • 00:39:53.050 --> 00:39:55.070
  • WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM TODAY.
  • 00:39:55.090 --> 00:39:56.190
  • WE'RE DELIGHTED YOU CAN BE WITH US.
  • 00:39:56.210 --> 00:39:57.260
  • - THANK YOU.
  • 00:39:57.280 --> 00:39:58.280
  • - YOU'RE A VERY POWERFUL VOICE FOR ISRAEL
  • 00:39:59.000 --> 00:40:00.070
  • IN YOUR OWN RIGHT.
  • 00:40:00.090 --> 00:40:02.130
  • YOU SPEAK IN MANY PLACES, AND IF YOU WERE GONNA
  • 00:40:02.150 --> 00:40:05.220
  • TALK TO THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY FOR A MOMENT,
  • 00:40:05.240 --> 00:40:07.070
  • WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE THEM TO KNOW ABOUT JERUSALEM
  • 00:40:07.090 --> 00:40:08.240
  • AND WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE THESE DAYS.
  • 00:40:08.260 --> 00:40:10.170
  • - WELL, JERUSALEM REPRESENTS ISRAEL AND
  • 00:40:10.190 --> 00:40:12.070
  • THE HEART OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:40:12.090 --> 00:40:14.100
  • FOR ANYONE TO THINK THAT YOU CAN DIVIDE ISRAEL,
  • 00:40:14.120 --> 00:40:17.020
  • IT REALLY MEANS DIVIDING THE JEWISH SOUL.
  • 00:40:17.040 --> 00:40:19.220
  • YOU CANNOT DIVIDE THIS CAPITAL.
  • 00:40:19.240 --> 00:40:22.030
  • IT IS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL, AND IT'S TIME
  • 00:40:22.050 --> 00:40:24.250
  • FOR THE WORLD TO RECOGNIZE THAT.
  • 00:40:24.270 --> 00:40:26.270
  • GOD PROMISED IT TO DAVID AND TO ALL THE
  • 00:40:26.290 --> 00:40:31.110
  • DESCENDANTS OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:40:31.130 --> 00:40:34.060
  • AND IT'S JUST VERY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO
  • 00:40:34.080 --> 00:40:39.060
  • UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS A VERY OPEN SOCIETY,
  • 00:40:39.080 --> 00:40:42.200
  • VERY PLURALISTIC, VERY DIVERSE.
  • 00:40:42.220 --> 00:40:45.140
  • WE HAVE JEWS, AND CHRISTIANS, AND MUSLIMS,
  • 00:40:45.160 --> 00:40:48.130
  • AND BEDOUINS AND DRUZE, PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE
  • 00:40:48.150 --> 00:40:52.060
  • WORLD COMING HERE.
  • 00:40:52.080 --> 00:40:54.000
  • THERE ARE MORE THAN 100 NATIONS THAT HAVE
  • 00:40:54.020 --> 00:40:56.100
  • IMMIGRATED HERE, SO YOU HAVE ALL THE DIFFERENT
  • 00:40:56.120 --> 00:40:59.130
  • CULTURES. IT'S REALLY A MELTING POT.
  • 00:40:59.150 --> 00:41:03.110
  • AND AS A CONSEQUENCE, I THINK THAT DIVERSITY HAS
  • 00:41:03.130 --> 00:41:05.180
  • MADE US STRONGER, MORE BROAD MINDED, MORE OPEN.
  • 00:41:05.200 --> 00:41:10.100
  • YOU'LL HEAR THE CHURCH BELLS RINGING, YOU'LL
  • 00:41:10.120 --> 00:41:12.130
  • HEAR THE MUSLIM CALL TO WORSHIP, YOU'LL SEE
  • 00:41:12.150 --> 00:41:15.260
  • EVERYONE WALKING IN THE STREETS.
  • 00:41:15.280 --> 00:41:18.070
  • IT IS AN AMAZING DEMOCRACY.
  • 00:41:18.090 --> 00:41:22.120
  • AND THIS IS WHERE OUR PARLIAMENT SITS.
  • 00:41:22.140 --> 00:41:25.050
  • AND WE HAVE MANY DIFFERENT POLITICAL PARTIES.
  • 00:41:25.070 --> 00:41:29.000
  • THERE'S A LOT OF DISCUSSION.
  • 00:41:29.020 --> 00:41:31.100
  • YOU HAVE MEMBERS OF KNESSET THAT ARE ARAB,
  • 00:41:31.120 --> 00:41:35.030
  • THAT ARE MUSLIM, THAT ARE JEW, AND EVERYONE IS,
  • 00:41:35.050 --> 00:41:38.280
  • HAS AN EQUAL VOICE HERE.
  • 00:41:39.000 --> 00:41:42.230
  • SO I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO COME AND REALLY
  • 00:41:42.250 --> 00:41:48.000
  • SEE THE TRUTH BECAUSE WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW, WHEN
  • 00:41:48.020 --> 00:41:51.270
  • YOU HAVE ALL OF THIS NEGATIVE MEDIA AND BIASED
  • 00:41:51.290 --> 00:41:55.040
  • MEDIA COMING AGAINST US, THEN YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:41:55.060 --> 00:41:59.050
  • HAVE TO COME AND EXPERIENCE ISRAEL.
  • 00:41:59.070 --> 00:42:01.030
  • YOU ACTUALLY HAVE TO WALK IN WHAT WE CALL
  • 00:42:01.050 --> 00:42:03.060
  • "THE TERRITORIES" AND SEE THESE BEAUTIFUL AMAZING
  • 00:42:03.080 --> 00:42:08.130
  • COMMUNITIES AND HOW THEY WORK TOGETHER.
  • 00:42:08.150 --> 00:42:10.210
  • THE CHRISTIANS AND THE PALESTINIANS, THE JEWS
  • 00:42:10.230 --> 00:42:13.000
  • AND THE PALESTINIANS WORKING TOGETHER,
  • 00:42:13.020 --> 00:42:15.240
  • HELPING EACH OTHER OUT. IT'S A TOTALLY DIFFERENT
  • 00:42:15.260 --> 00:42:19.180
  • STORY THAN WHAT YOU GET IN THE MEDIA.
  • 00:42:19.200 --> 00:42:21.100
  • - GOD'S STRENGTH IS PRESENT.
  • 00:42:21.120 --> 00:42:23.070
  • WHENEVER I VISIT JERUSALEM AND I WALK THE
  • 00:42:23.090 --> 00:42:25.060
  • STONE STREETS IN THIS CITY, IT BRINGS HOPE TO
  • 00:42:25.080 --> 00:42:28.160
  • ME, NO MATTER WHAT CHALLENGES ARE IN MY
  • 00:42:28.180 --> 00:42:30.140
  • LIFE, TO REMEMBER THAT OUR GOD IS A DELIVERER,
  • 00:42:30.160 --> 00:42:33.020
  • A REDEEMER, A RESTORER AND THAT HE
  • 00:42:33.040 --> 00:42:35.080
  • RESPONDS TO HIS PEOPLE.
  • 00:42:35.100 --> 00:42:37.110
  • HE'S BEEN DOING IT IN THE EARTH FOR MILLENNIA, AND
  • 00:42:37.130 --> 00:42:39.090
  • HE'S DOING IT TODAY IN THE 21ST CENTURY.
  • 00:42:39.110 --> 00:42:41.200
  • I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU BEFORE WE GO.
  • 00:42:41.220 --> 00:42:43.280
  • FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR THIS GREAT CITY, AND I
  • 00:42:44.000 --> 00:42:46.110

  • SO FAITHFULLY ON BEHALF OF YOUR PURPOSES.
  • 00:42:49.140 --> 00:42:51.280
  • AND I PRAY FOR EACH ONE OF US TODAY THAT WE WILL
  • 00:42:52.000 --> 00:42:54.060
  • BE FAITHFUL IN WHAT YOU'VE CALLED US TO BE.
  • 00:42:54.080 --> 00:42:56.160
  • GIVE US COURAGE AND BOLDNESS. MAY WE NEVER
  • 00:42:56.180 --> 00:42:59.010
  • STEP AWAY, MAY WE NEVER LOSE OUR FAITH.
  • 00:42:59.030 --> 00:43:03.070
  • AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU WILL GIVE US THE POWER TO
  • 00:43:03.090 --> 00:43:05.190
  • OVERCOME, TO KNOW FREEDOM AND WHOLENESS AND A
  • 00:43:05.210 --> 00:43:08.090
  • FUTURE THAT YOU HAVE SECURED FOR US.
  • 00:43:08.110 --> 00:43:10.270
  • WE DO PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM TODAY.
  • 00:43:10.290 --> 00:43:13.120
  • WE PRAY FOR THE INHABITANTS OF THIS CITY.
  • 00:43:13.140 --> 00:43:15.120
  • MAY THE POWER OF GOD RADIATE FROM THIS PLACE
  • 00:43:15.140 --> 00:43:19.010
  • TO THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:43:19.030 --> 00:43:20.190
  • WE PRAISE YOU FOR IT, IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
  • 00:43:20.210 --> 00:43:23.270
  • THANK YOU TO THE AYALONS, AND THANK YOU FOR
  • 00:43:23.290 --> 00:43:26.010
  • BEING A PART OF OUR PROGRAM TODAY.
  • 00:43:26.030 --> 00:43:28.150
  • - MATT CROUCH: FOR ALL OF OUR PROGRAMMERS, WE WANT
  • 00:43:29.070 --> 00:43:30.220
  • YOU TO GO THERE.
  • 00:43:30.240 --> 00:43:32.000
  • USE IT, AND YOU'RE SITTING THERE AND YOU'VE
  • 00:43:32.020 --> 00:43:34.050
  • GOT MOUNT ZION RIGHT OVER YOUR SHOULDER, MOUNT
  • 00:43:34.070 --> 00:43:37.250
  • MORIAH, THAT'S WHERE IT ALL HAPPENED.
  • 00:43:37.270 --> 00:43:39.130
  • AND IN THIS STUDIO, HOW MANY HAVE BEEN TO ISRAEL?
  • 00:43:39.150 --> 00:43:42.180
  • JUST RAISE YOUR HAND.
  • 00:43:42.200 --> 00:43:44.180
  • KIND OF WAVE IT AROUND IF YOU'VE BEEN TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:43:44.200 --> 00:43:47.030
  • SO TWO ON THIS SIDE, FOUR OR FIVE ON THAT SIDE.
  • 00:43:47.050 --> 00:43:51.020
  • SO NOT THAT-- HOW MANY WOULD LOVE TO GO TO ISRAEL?
  • 00:43:51.040 --> 00:43:54.240
  • YEAH. EVERYONE WANTS TO GO.
  • 00:43:54.260 --> 00:43:56.250
  • HOW MANY WANTS TO GO IN PASTOR ALLEN WOULD PAY
  • 00:43:56.270 --> 00:43:58.230
  • FOR IT? THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:43:58.250 --> 00:44:01.130
  • THIS IS KIND OF LIKE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW
  • 00:44:01.150 --> 00:44:04.010
  • EXCEPT THAT I'M JOKING. SORRY.
  • 00:44:04.030 --> 00:44:06.210
  • BUT WHAT WE WANT TO DO-- BY THE WAY, I WANT YOU
  • 00:44:06.230 --> 00:44:11.160
  • TO, WE ARE NEARING THE END OF THIS
  • 00:44:11.180 --> 00:44:16.080
  • PRODUCTION ON ISRAEL.
  • 00:44:16.100 --> 00:44:18.260
  • WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS I WANT YOU TO KIND OF
  • 00:44:18.280 --> 00:44:21.140
  • SUMMARIZE A LITTLE BIT OF KIND OF HOW THIS GOSPEL
  • 00:44:21.160 --> 00:44:27.170
  • CAME TO US AND THE IDEA THAT WE'RE NOT TALKING
  • 00:44:27.190 --> 00:44:33.180
  • ABOUT SOME PIECE OF HISTORY WE CAN CAST AWAY.
  • 00:44:33.200 --> 00:44:36.210
  • OUR STORY BEGINS AT "IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE
  • 00:44:36.230 --> 00:44:41.150
  • HEAVENS AND THE EARTH," AND WHEN YOU READ
  • 00:44:41.170 --> 00:44:43.170
  • SCRIPTURE, IT SAYS "THE LAMB SLAIN BEFORE THE
  • 00:44:43.190 --> 00:44:46.000
  • FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH."
  • 00:44:46.020 --> 00:44:47.100
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT OUR HERITAGE.
  • 00:44:47.120 --> 00:44:49.190
  • THIS IS--YOU KNOW, AND LOOK, GO TO ISRAEL,
  • 00:44:49.210 --> 00:44:53.010
  • INVEST IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:44:53.030 --> 00:44:55.130
  • GO TO ISRAEL AT SOME POINT.
  • 00:44:55.150 --> 00:44:56.240
  • BUT IF YOU CAN'T, THE PROMISES ABOUT
  • 00:44:56.260 --> 00:44:59.080
  • ISRAEL APPLY TO US.
  • 00:44:59.100 --> 00:45:01.050
  • IF YOUR FEET NEVER TOUCH, THE PROMISES ARE YOURS
  • 00:45:01.070 --> 00:45:04.290
  • ALREADY. EXPLAIN THAT TO OUR VIEWING AUDIENCE.
  • 00:45:05.010 --> 00:45:08.010
  • AND IF YOU FEEL LED PASTOR, PRAY FOR FOLKS.
  • 00:45:08.030 --> 00:45:10.120
  • DO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO.
  • 00:45:10.140 --> 00:45:12.050
  • JUST ISRAEL MATTERS, AND IT MATTERS FOR A LOT
  • 00:45:12.070 --> 00:45:15.000
  • OF REASONS. PLEASE SIR.
  • 00:45:15.020 --> 00:45:17.050
  • - WELL, ISRAEL MATTERS BUT THAT'S AN
  • 00:45:17.070 --> 00:45:19.120
  • UNDERSTATEMENT. THE PEOPLE OF GOD MATTER.
  • 00:45:19.140 --> 00:45:21.250
  • I THINK TO UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE OF GOD, WE HAVE TO
  • 00:45:21.270 --> 00:45:24.110
  • UNDERSTAND ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:45:24.130 --> 00:45:26.130
  • IT IS NOT UNIQUELY THEM, IT'S US TOO, AND THAT'S
  • 00:45:26.150 --> 00:45:29.120
  • THE PART I THINK WHEN YOU SEE GOD'S FAITHFULNESS TO
  • 00:45:29.140 --> 00:45:31.290
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE, IT GIVES US A BOLDNESS TO
  • 00:45:32.010 --> 00:45:34.140
  • TRUST GOD'S FAITHFULNESS TO US.
  • 00:45:34.160 --> 00:45:36.260
  • THE BOOK OF GENESIS IN THOSE EARLY CHAPTERS
  • 00:45:36.280 --> 00:45:38.260
  • GIVES US THE BIG ROCK IDEAS OF THE WHOLE BIBLE.
  • 00:45:38.280 --> 00:45:41.220
  • "IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS
  • 00:45:41.240 --> 00:45:43.280
  • AND THE EARTH."
  • 00:45:44.000 --> 00:45:45.130
  • WE UNDERSTAND HE'S A COVENANT MAKING AND
  • 00:45:45.150 --> 00:45:46.280
  • COVENANT KEEPING GOD.
  • 00:45:47.000 --> 00:45:48.280
  • ONCE YOU GET THOSE BIG ROCK IDEAS, THE REST OF
  • 00:45:49.000 --> 00:45:50.230
  • THE BIBLE REALLY FILLS OUT THAT STORY.
  • 00:45:50.250 --> 00:45:54.080
  • AND A PART OF THAT STORY IS GOD WANTS A
  • 00:45:54.100 --> 00:45:56.080
  • PEOPLE FOR HIMSELF.
  • 00:45:56.100 --> 00:45:58.000
  • IN GENESIS 12, WHEN HE SAYS TO ABRAM, IF YOU'LL
  • 00:45:58.020 --> 00:45:59.290
  • LEAVE YOUR HOME AND GO TO THE PLACE I'LL SHOW YOU,
  • 00:46:00.030 --> 00:46:02.180
  • I'LL MAKE YOU, I'LL BLESS ALL THE PEOPLES
  • 00:46:02.200 --> 00:46:04.170
  • ON EARTH THROUGH YOU. AND GOD IS STILL DOING THAT.
  • 00:46:04.190 --> 00:46:07.280
  • HE'S STILL KEEPING HIS COVENANT TO ABRAHAM.
  • 00:46:08.000 --> 00:46:10.090
  • HE'S KEEPING IT THROUGH YOU AND ME.
  • 00:46:10.110 --> 00:46:12.110
  • AND SO IT'S NOT AN US/THEM STORY, AND IT'S
  • 00:46:12.130 --> 00:46:14.210
  • NOT A GOING TO BIBLICAL DISNEYLAND WHEN WE
  • 00:46:14.230 --> 00:46:18.040
  • GO TO ISRAEL AND VISIT THE SITES.
  • 00:46:18.060 --> 00:46:20.030
  • IT'S A REMINDER THAT THE GOD WE WORSHIP CREATED
  • 00:46:20.050 --> 00:46:23.160
  • THIS EARTH WITH US IN MIND, AND HE'S
  • 00:46:23.180 --> 00:46:25.270
  • STILL INVOLVED HERE.
  • 00:46:25.290 --> 00:46:27.250
  • AND IT TAKES YOUR BIBLE OUT OF THE REALM OF A
  • 00:46:27.270 --> 00:46:29.220
  • HISTORY BOOK OR A THEOLOGICAL TOME, AND
  • 00:46:29.240 --> 00:46:32.060
  • IT MAKES IT A PART OF YOUR DAILY EXPERIENCE,
  • 00:46:32.080 --> 00:46:34.160
  • SOMETHING I CAN TRUST FOR THE CHALLENGES I FACE.
  • 00:46:34.180 --> 00:46:37.240
  • IF GOD WILL BE FAITHFUL TO THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:46:37.260 --> 00:46:39.280
  • THEN MAYBE I CAN TRUST HIM TO BE FAITHFUL TO ME.
  • 00:46:40.000 --> 00:46:43.010
  • I THINK SO MANY TIMES PREACHER PEOPLE LIKE ME
  • 00:46:43.030 --> 00:46:45.000
  • TRY TO MAKE IT CONFUSING, AND IT'S NOT.
  • 00:46:45.020 --> 00:46:47.280
  • I GREW UP IN A BARN IN TENNESSEE.
  • 00:46:48.000 --> 00:46:49.170
  • IF I CAN UNDERSTAND THIS, ANYBODY CAN UNDERSTAND THIS.
  • 00:46:49.190 --> 00:46:51.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:46:51.290 --> 00:46:53.290
  • IT'S THERE FOR US.
  • 00:46:54.010 --> 00:46:55.230
  • AND WALKING THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM, OR STANDING
  • 00:46:55.250 --> 00:46:57.290
  • AND SEEING THE SEA OF GALILEE, IT'S A BIG LAKE
  • 00:46:58.010 --> 00:47:00.140
  • BUT IT'S A BIG LAKE WHERE TWO-THIRDS OF JESUS'
  • 00:47:00.160 --> 00:47:03.120
  • MIRACLES TOOK PLACE ON THE NORTHERN END OF THAT
  • 00:47:03.140 --> 00:47:05.230
  • PLACE. SO IT'S NOT JUST ONCE UPON A TIME,
  • 00:47:05.250 --> 00:47:08.140
  • AND LONG LONG AGO, AND FAR FAR AWAY.
  • 00:47:08.160 --> 00:47:10.280
  • IT'S ABOUT TODAY. I DO HAVE A PRAYER
  • 00:47:11.000 --> 00:47:14.080
  • I WOULD LIKE TO PRAY FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:47:14.100 --> 00:47:16.080
  • IF YOU'LL LISTEN TO THIS AND YOU THINK ISRAEL IS
  • 00:47:16.100 --> 00:47:17.280
  • BEYOND ME, MAYBE. BUT IT'S NOT BEYOND GOD.
  • 00:47:18.000 --> 00:47:22.110
  • PEOPLE WILL SAY TO ME "PASTOR, I WANT TO GO
  • 00:47:22.130 --> 00:47:24.010
  • TO ISRAEL BUT I CAN'T AFFORD IT." I GET THAT.
  • 00:47:24.030 --> 00:47:26.220
  • BUT I WOULD SUGGEST LET'S SAY TO THE LORD, LORD,
  • 00:47:26.240 --> 00:47:29.210
  • IF YOU WANT ME TO GO, YOU PROVIDE FOR ME.
  • 00:47:29.230 --> 00:47:32.160
  • GOD IS NOT INTIMIDATED BY A TRIP TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:47:32.180 --> 00:47:36.150
  • AND IF YOU CAN GO WITH TBN, AWESOME.
  • 00:47:36.170 --> 00:47:39.110
  • IF YOU CAN'T, TELL THE LORD YOU WANT TO GO
  • 00:47:39.130 --> 00:47:40.190
  • WHEN HE PROVIDES.
  • 00:47:40.210 --> 00:47:42.060
  • LET HIM PUT IT ON HIS "TO DO" LIST FOR YOU.
  • 00:47:42.080 --> 00:47:45.020
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO ISRAEL ONE DAY.
  • 00:47:45.040 --> 00:47:46.250
  • WE'RE ALL GOING TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:47:46.270 --> 00:47:48.160
  • IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIMING.
  • 00:47:48.180 --> 00:47:50.040
  • I JUST WANT TO BE READY. BUT I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:47:50.060 --> 00:47:52.060
  • AND IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE, IF
  • 00:47:52.080 --> 00:47:54.100
  • THEY'RE OLD ENOUGH TO LISTEN AND PARTICIPATE IN
  • 00:47:54.120 --> 00:47:56.030
  • A TRIP LIKE THAT, TAKE THEM ALONG.
  • 00:47:56.050 --> 00:47:58.020
  • IT WILL CHANGE THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:47:58.040 --> 00:47:59.130
  • I HAVE A PASSION TO SEE A NEW GENERATION OF CHRIST
  • 00:47:59.150 --> 00:48:02.200
  • FOLLOWERS EMERGE IN THE EARTH WITH A BOLD
  • 00:48:02.220 --> 00:48:05.110
  • CONFIDENCE IN THE WORD OF GOD TO PUT THEIR HEARTS.
  • 00:48:05.130 --> 00:48:07.280
  • THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE BRIGHTEST AND BEST
  • 00:48:08.000 --> 00:48:10.040
  • AMONGST US CHOSE TO SERVE THE LORD, AND WE'VE
  • 00:48:10.060 --> 00:48:13.090
  • SLIPPED AWAY FROM THAT A LITTLE BIT.
  • 00:48:13.110 --> 00:48:15.060
  • BUT I BELIEVE WITH THE AGE AHEAD OF US, WITH THE
  • 00:48:15.080 --> 00:48:17.230
  • SEASON AHEAD OF US, WE'RE GONNA SEE A WHOLE NEW
  • 00:48:17.250 --> 00:48:19.200
  • GENERATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE GIVING
  • 00:48:19.220 --> 00:48:20.280
  • THEIR BEST TO GOD.
  • 00:48:21.000 --> 00:48:22.230
  • AND IF ISRAEL CAN BE A PART OF THAT, SO BE IT.
  • 00:48:22.250 --> 00:48:24.120
  • IF NOT, YOU JUST SAY THE VOTE.
  • 00:48:24.140 --> 00:48:26.060
  • I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU THAT GOD WILL OPEN THAT
  • 00:48:26.080 --> 00:48:28.080
  • DOOR IN HIS TIME FOR YOU TO MAKE THAT TRIP.
  • 00:48:28.100 --> 00:48:30.070
  • THAT BE OKAY? - MATT CROUCH: PLEASE.
  • 00:48:30.090 --> 00:48:31.220
  • - YOU'LL LET THEM GO? - MATT CROUCH: PLEASE.
  • 00:48:31.240 --> 00:48:33.020
  • - FATHER, I THANK YOU FOR EVERY PERSON THAT WE
  • 00:48:33.040 --> 00:48:35.010
  • HAVE THE TIME WITH TODAY.
  • 00:48:35.030 --> 00:48:36.260
  • I KNOW YOU HAVE A PURPOSE FOR THEIR LIFE AND A PLAN.
  • 00:48:36.280 --> 00:48:39.070
  • LORD, JUST AS YOU CALLED ABRAHAM, YOU HAVE CALLED
  • 00:48:39.090 --> 00:48:41.080
  • US IN THIS SEASON.
  • 00:48:41.100 --> 00:48:43.090
  • LORD, I PRAY FOR EVERY PERSON THAT HAS THAT
  • 00:48:43.110 --> 00:48:44.270
  • DESIRE THAT YOU'LL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND
  • 00:48:44.290 --> 00:48:47.130
  • POUR OUT YOUR BLESSINGS UPON THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:48:47.150 --> 00:48:49.010
  • YOU ARE A PROVIDING GOD, A GOD OF ABUNDANCE AND
  • 00:48:49.030 --> 00:48:51.100
  • SUFFICIENCY THAT IF YOU PUT THE DREAM IN OUR
  • 00:48:51.120 --> 00:48:53.230
  • HEART, YOU HAVE THE PROVISION TO MAKE IT A
  • 00:48:53.250 --> 00:48:55.170
  • POSSIBILITY, AND I PRAY YOU'LL OPEN THE DOORS IN
  • 00:48:55.190 --> 00:48:58.060
  • YOUR TIME. I THANK YOU FOR IT IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
  • 00:48:58.080 --> 00:49:03.050
  • - AMEN. BEAUTIFUL. ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:49:03.070 --> 00:49:05.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:49:05.200 --> 00:49:08.200
  • YOU SAID A MOMENT AGO, YOU SAID THE SEASON AHEAD.
  • 00:49:08.220 --> 00:49:13.210
  • YOU MEAN, OF COURSE, THE RAPTURE, RIGHT?
  • 00:49:13.230 --> 00:49:15.160
  • AND YOU'RE PREPARED TO MAKE A PREDICTION
  • 00:49:15.180 --> 00:49:18.140
  • ON DATE, RIGHT?
  • 00:49:18.160 --> 00:49:20.030
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:49:20.050 --> 00:49:21.140
  • I JUST SURVIVED THE ECLIPSE, AND I TOLD THE
  • 00:49:21.160 --> 00:49:22.270
  • CHURCH IF YOU HEAR THE TRUMPET BLOW,
  • 00:49:22.290 --> 00:49:24.070
  • WE'RE OUT OF HERE.
  • 00:49:24.090 --> 00:49:25.280
  • - YEAH, SO IT WAS AMAZING BY THE WAY IN
  • 00:49:26.000 --> 00:49:29.080
  • MURFREESBORO, AND I'M SURE IT WAS THERE AS IT WAS IN
  • 00:49:29.100 --> 00:49:33.120
  • HENDERSONVILLE TENNESSEE WHERE WE WERE, AND WHEN
  • 00:49:33.140 --> 00:49:36.290
  • YOU LOOKED UP AT SOME POINT-- YOU KNOW, I MEAN,
  • 00:49:37.010 --> 00:49:39.120
  • WHEN THERE WAS JUST A TINY LITTLE RAZOR THIN
  • 00:49:39.140 --> 00:49:42.010
  • PIECE OF THE SUN, YOU STILL COULDN'T LOOK AT IT.
  • 00:49:42.030 --> 00:49:44.130
  • AND AS SOON AS IT HIT THAT MOMENT AND IT GOT THERE,
  • 00:49:44.150 --> 00:49:47.210
  • YOU COULD TAKE YOUR GLASSES OFF,
  • 00:49:47.230 --> 00:49:49.030
  • LOOK RIGHT AT IT. IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:49:49.050 --> 00:49:51.060
  • LET ME SEE IF ONE OF THE KIND OF PREVAILING POINTS
  • 00:49:51.080 --> 00:49:58.120
  • THAT YOU'VE MADE IN THIS BROADCAST WAS ISRAEL
  • 00:49:58.140 --> 00:50:02.280
  • MATTERS BECAUSE IF GOD WOULD BE FAITHFUL TO THE
  • 00:50:03.000 --> 00:50:06.110
  • JEW FIRST, HE'LL BE FAITHFUL TO THE GENTILE.
  • 00:50:06.130 --> 00:50:09.030
  • AND IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND PROPHECY IN REGARD TO THE
  • 00:50:09.050 --> 00:50:14.180
  • JEWS BEING SCATTERED, YOU KNOW, FOR VIRTUALLY
  • 00:50:14.200 --> 00:50:17.240
  • 2000 YEARS AND THEN MIRACULOUSLY BEING CAN A
  • 00:50:17.260 --> 00:50:23.150
  • NATION BE FORMED IN A DAY, 1948 WAS KIND
  • 00:50:23.170 --> 00:50:26.130
  • OF A GAME CHANGER.
  • 00:50:26.150 --> 00:50:28.100
  • THAT'S SEEMINGLY WHAT YOU WERE SAYING.
  • 00:50:28.120 --> 00:50:30.290
  • SO SINCE 1948, IT'S STATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO
  • 00:50:31.010 --> 00:50:37.210
  • DOUBT THE FACT THAT GOD WILL CARE FOR ME IF HE
  • 00:50:37.230 --> 00:50:42.190
  • HAS CARED FOR THEM AS TO THE JEW FIRST AND THE
  • 00:50:42.210 --> 00:50:45.210
  • GENTILE. GOD CARES ABOUT US.
  • 00:50:45.230 --> 00:50:47.180
  • THAT IS ONE OF THE DEFINING MOMENTS, AND
  • 00:50:47.200 --> 00:50:50.210
  • THAT'S SOMETIMES WHY ISRAEL MATTERS THE MOST.
  • 00:50:50.230 --> 00:50:53.280
  • GOD CARES FOR THEM, HE'LL CARE FOR ME.
  • 00:50:54.000 --> 00:50:56.010
  • HE'S GOT US, RIGHT?
  • 00:50:56.030 --> 00:50:58.030
  • - ALLEN JACKSON: HE DOES. THANK GOD HE DOES.
  • 00:50:58.050 --> 00:51:00.030
  • - WHAT IF WE'RE WORRYING ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:51:00.050 --> 00:51:02.170
  • WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT ARE WORRYING ABOUT
  • 00:51:02.190 --> 00:51:05.120
  • THEIR OWN SAFETY, THEIR OWN FUTURE, THEIR OWN--
  • 00:51:05.140 --> 00:51:10.260
  • I KNOW THAT YOU'VE WRITTEN A BOOK ON THIS SUBJECT,
  • 00:51:10.280 --> 00:51:16.170
  • AND HELP SOME OF THE PEOPLE THAT MIGHT BE
  • 00:51:16.190 --> 00:51:21.180
  • THINKING WELL, YOU KNOW, I NEED SOMETHING IN
  • 00:51:21.200 --> 00:51:26.280
  • REGARD TO ANXIETY AND WORRY AND FEAR.
  • 00:51:27.000 --> 00:51:30.030
  • JUST A THOUGHT TO THOSE FOLKS AS WE'RE KIND OF
  • 00:51:30.050 --> 00:51:32.170
  • CONCLUDING THIS BROADCAST TODAY.
  • 00:51:32.190 --> 00:51:34.230
  • - OKAY. I DON'T THINK IT'S IF WE'RE WORRYING ABOUT
  • 00:51:34.250 --> 00:51:37.110
  • THOSE KIND OF THINGS. I THINK WE ALL DO.
  • 00:51:37.130 --> 00:51:40.160
  • AT LEAST FROM TIME TO TIME.
  • 00:51:40.180 --> 00:51:42.090
  • IT MAY NOT PLAGUE US EVERY DAY, BUT WE HAVE AN
  • 00:51:42.110 --> 00:51:44.220
  • ENEMY AND AN ADVERSARY, AND ONE OF THE PLACES HE
  • 00:51:44.240 --> 00:51:47.060
  • ATTACKS US MOST FIERCELY IS IN OUR MINDS.
  • 00:51:47.080 --> 00:51:49.260
  • AND WORRY AND ANXIETY AND FEAR ARE POWERFUL TOOLS
  • 00:51:49.280 --> 00:51:53.270
  • HE USES IN OUR MIND.
  • 00:51:53.290 --> 00:51:55.270
  • AND WHEN I VISIT ISRAEL AND I SEE THE THINGS THEY
  • 00:51:55.290 --> 00:51:58.060
  • HAVE TO BE AFRAID OF, THE NUMBER ONE REASON PEOPLE
  • 00:51:58.080 --> 00:52:00.040
  • TELL ME THEY DON'T WANT TO GO TO ISRAEL
  • 00:52:00.060 --> 00:52:01.080
  • IS THEY'RE AFRAID.
  • 00:52:01.100 --> 00:52:03.110
  • STATICALLY THE MOST DANGEROUS PART OF A TRIP
  • 00:52:03.130 --> 00:52:04.280
  • TO ISRAEL IS THE DRIVE TO THE AIRPORT
  • 00:52:05.000 --> 00:52:06.100
  • IN THE STATES.
  • 00:52:06.120 --> 00:52:08.000
  • - REALLY? WOW.
  • 00:52:08.020 --> 00:52:10.040
  • - SO BUT THE FEAR IS REAL.
  • 00:52:10.060 --> 00:52:12.280
  • I'VE WATCHED IT IN THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, YET
  • 00:52:13.000 --> 00:52:15.130
  • WHEN YOU FIND OUT THE FEAR IS A THREAT, BUT
  • 00:52:15.150 --> 00:52:21.110
  • IT'S NOT REAL, THAT IT'S A SAFE PLACE AND A SECURE
  • 00:52:21.130 --> 00:52:23.230
  • PLACE, AND THAT'S WHAT WORRY AND ANXIETY DOES TO
  • 00:52:23.250 --> 00:52:26.130
  • US. IT BUILDS SOMETHING IN OUR MIND. IT PARALYZES US.
  • 00:52:26.150 --> 00:52:29.180
  • IT KEEPS US FROM EXPERIENCING LIFE.
  • 00:52:29.200 --> 00:52:32.070
  • AND WHEN WE RECOGNIZE THAT IT'S NOT REALLY
  • 00:52:32.090 --> 00:52:34.080
  • TRUE, IT'S A CHARADE, IT'S A FALSE IMAGE THAT
  • 00:52:34.100 --> 00:52:38.190
  • GOD'S WORD CAN BE TRUSTED, AND THAT HE CAN
  • 00:52:38.210 --> 00:52:41.090
  • SECURE OUR FUTURE, THAT HE CAN SECURE OUR HOMES,
  • 00:52:41.110 --> 00:52:44.240
  • AND OUR RELATIONSHIPS, AND THE RESOURCES THAT
  • 00:52:44.260 --> 00:52:46.280
  • WE'LL NEED, AND ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE SO
  • 00:52:47.000 --> 00:52:49.110
  • INTIMIDATING IN A WORLD THAT'S CHANGING SO RAPIDLY.
  • 00:52:49.130 --> 00:52:52.100
  • THERE'S A TREMENDOUS HOPE IN THAT.
  • 00:52:52.120 --> 00:52:55.140
  • I'M A PASTOR, AND IT CONCERNS ME WHEN I SEE
  • 00:52:55.160 --> 00:52:59.020
  • PEOPLE CAPTURED BY WORRY AND FEAR AND ANXIETY.
  • 00:52:59.040 --> 00:53:03.180
  • WHEN I KNOW THERE'S A PATHWAY OUT OF THAT.
  • 00:53:03.200 --> 00:53:05.210
  • CHANGE IS COMING TO OUR WORLD IN AN UNPRECEDENTED
  • 00:53:05.230 --> 00:53:08.290
  • WAY, AND I'M AN ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE, BUT
  • 00:53:09.010 --> 00:53:12.060
  • IT'S NOT ALWAYS EASY.
  • 00:53:12.080 --> 00:53:14.060
  • AND IT'S ALMOST ALWAYS, THERE'S FRICTION THAT
  • 00:53:14.080 --> 00:53:16.170
  • COMES WITH IT.
  • 00:53:16.190 --> 00:53:18.130
  • AND IN THAT FRICTION, THERE'S CONCERN.
  • 00:53:18.150 --> 00:53:20.070
  • WHAT IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT?
  • 00:53:20.090 --> 00:53:21.170
  • WHAT IF I'M AN ADVOCATE FOR THE CHANGE AND IT'S
  • 00:53:21.190 --> 00:53:23.010
  • NOT A GOOD CHANGE?
  • 00:53:23.030 --> 00:53:24.230
  • OR DO WE NEED TO STAY WHERE WE WERE
  • 00:53:24.250 --> 00:53:26.100
  • AND NOT CHANGE?
  • 00:53:26.120 --> 00:53:28.040
  • AND THAT'S WHERE GOD'S WORD IS SUCH A
  • 00:53:28.060 --> 00:53:29.170
  • POWERFUL THING TO ME.
  • 00:53:29.190 --> 00:53:31.070
  • I CAN LOOK TO IT AND IT ANCHORS MY LIFE.
  • 00:53:31.090 --> 00:53:33.140
  • THERE ARE PROMISES THAT HELP ME UNDERSTAND
  • 00:53:33.160 --> 00:53:35.000
  • TOMORROW WHAT GOD HAS SAID HE'LL DO FOR ME
  • 00:53:35.020 --> 00:53:37.080
  • NO MATTER WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:53:37.100 --> 00:53:39.150
  • GOD IS NEVER CAUGHT OFF GUARD.
  • 00:53:39.170 --> 00:53:41.060
  • HE'S NOT SURPRISED BY THE SEASONS WHEN THEY CHANGE.
  • 00:53:41.080 --> 00:53:44.080
  • AND HE'S NOT SURPRISED BY THE SEASONS WHEN THEY
  • 00:53:44.100 --> 00:53:46.190
  • CHANGE IN HIS PURPOSES ON THE EARTH EITHER.
  • 00:53:46.210 --> 00:53:48.260
  • HE'LL TAKE CARE OF US.
  • 00:53:48.280 --> 00:53:50.180
  • - SO IF SOME PEOPLE WATCH THE NEWS SOMETIMES
  • 00:53:50.200 --> 00:53:53.090
  • AND THEY SEE WHAT GOES ON IN ISRAEL, SOMETIMES THAT
  • 00:53:53.110 --> 00:53:57.020
  • ALMOST COMPOUNDS THEIR CONCERNS AND FEARS.
  • 00:53:57.040 --> 00:54:01.080
  • WE GO THERE A LOT.
  • 00:54:01.100 --> 00:54:03.130
  • WE HAVE NEVER HAD AN ISSUE.
  • 00:54:03.150 --> 00:54:07.140
  • BUT SOMETIMES THE SUBJECT OF WORRY AND FEAR AND
  • 00:54:07.160 --> 00:54:11.180
  • THAT KIND OF THING, FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT DEAL
  • 00:54:11.200 --> 00:54:14.210
  • WITH THAT, WHY DON'T YOU PRAY FOR THEM PASTOR AND
  • 00:54:14.230 --> 00:54:18.260
  • JUST KIND OF, LET'S DIG INTO THAT JUST FOR A
  • 00:54:18.280 --> 00:54:22.230
  • MINUTE HERE AS WE'RE KIND OF WRAPPING UP.
  • 00:54:22.250 --> 00:54:24.280
  • - I'D LOVE TO. - PLEASE.
  • 00:54:25.000 --> 00:54:27.170
  • - WE'RE INSTRUCTED IN PSALM TO PRAY FOR THE
  • 00:54:27.190 --> 00:54:28.290
  • PEACE OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:54:29.010 --> 00:54:31.010
  • BIBLICALLY, PEACE ISN'T THE ABSENT OF CONFLICT,
  • 00:54:31.030 --> 00:54:33.110
  • IT AN ASSURANCE THAT GOD IS WATCHING OVER US.
  • 00:54:33.130 --> 00:54:36.080
  • JESUS HAD PEACE IN A BOAT THAT WAS CAUGHT IN THE
  • 00:54:36.100 --> 00:54:38.080
  • MIDDLE OF A STORM AND THE FISHERMEN THOUGHT
  • 00:54:38.100 --> 00:54:39.200
  • THEY WERE GONNA DROWN.
  • 00:54:39.220 --> 00:54:41.100
  • SO WE CAN HAVE PEACE IN THE MIDST OF
  • 00:54:41.120 --> 00:54:42.180
  • A TUMULTUOUS WORLD.
  • 00:54:42.200 --> 00:54:44.210
  • I BELIEVE THE ISRAELIS CAN DWELL IN PEACE IN THE
  • 00:54:44.230 --> 00:54:47.090
  • MIDST OF A VERY DIFFICULT NEIGHBORHOOD.
  • 00:54:47.110 --> 00:54:49.170
  • SO I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU, NOT THAT THE
  • 00:54:49.190 --> 00:54:50.250
  • CONFLICT OR THE STRESS WILL DISAPPEAR IN YOUR
  • 00:54:50.270 --> 00:54:53.210
  • LIFE, BUT IN THE MIDST OF WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCES
  • 00:54:53.230 --> 00:54:56.190
  • YOU FACE YOU WILL KNOW GOD WILL BRING YOU THROUGH.
  • 00:54:56.210 --> 00:54:59.280
  • HE'LL BRING YOU THROUGH CHALLENGING RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:55:00.020 --> 00:55:02.120
  • HE'LL BRING YOU THROUGH DIFFICULTIES IN YOUR JOB
  • 00:55:02.140 --> 00:55:04.220
  • OR THE WORKPLACE.
  • 00:55:04.240 --> 00:55:06.080
  • HE'LL BRING YOU WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCES YOU FACE,
  • 00:55:06.100 --> 00:55:08.140
  • OUR GOD IS A DELIVERING GOD.
  • 00:55:08.160 --> 00:55:10.170
  • IF HE CAN GET JONAH FROM THE BELLY OF A FISH ON TO
  • 00:55:10.190 --> 00:55:13.170
  • DRY LAND, BACK INTO HIS PURPOSES, HE'S GOT YOU
  • 00:55:13.190 --> 00:55:16.220
  • AND ME. LET'S PRAY BEFORE WE GO.
  • 00:55:16.240 --> 00:55:19.060
  • LORD, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR POWER AND YOUR TRUTH
  • 00:55:19.080 --> 00:55:21.120
  • IN THIS WORLD, THAT YOU ARE WATCHING OVER YOUR
  • 00:55:21.140 --> 00:55:24.030
  • WORD TO PROTECT IT AND TO SEE TO IT JUST AS
  • 00:55:24.050 --> 00:55:26.290
  • CERTAINLY AS WHEN YOU INVITED ABRAHAM FROM THE
  • 00:55:27.010 --> 00:55:29.110
  • UR OF THE CHALDEES.
  • 00:55:29.130 --> 00:55:31.090
  • AND I PRAY FOR EVERY PERSON LISTENING TODAY
  • 00:55:31.110 --> 00:55:33.160
  • THAT THEY WILL HEAR YOUR VOICE SPEAKING IN THEIR
  • 00:55:33.180 --> 00:55:35.270
  • HEART, THAT THEY WILL KNOW YOU ARE LORD OVER
  • 00:55:35.290 --> 00:55:38.120
  • THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES, THAT YOUR PEACE WILL COME TO

  • THEIR HEARTS AND MIND, YOUR CONFIDENCE THAT
  • 00:55:41.040 --> 00:55:43.080
  • YOU HAVE A GOOD FUTURE FOR THEM.
  • 00:55:43.100 --> 00:55:45.100
  • WE PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM AND FOR YOUR
  • 00:55:45.120 --> 00:55:47.150
  • PEACE IN OUR LIVES IN JESUS' NAME. AMEN.
  • 00:55:47.170 --> 00:55:50.190
