  • 00:02:15.160 --> 00:02:15.280
  • I'm sitting in a miracle,
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:17.100
  • right here,
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:18.110
  • in the city of Jerusalem.
  • 00:02:18.110 --> 00:02:19.220
  • Behind me is the Temple Mount,
  • 00:02:19.220 --> 00:02:22.180
  • and we know
  • 00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:23.090
  • that's where Abraham
  • 00:02:23.090 --> 00:02:25.140
  • offered up Isaac.
  • 00:02:25.140 --> 00:02:26.240
  • We know that's where,
  • 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:27.270
  • somewhere in that region,
  • 00:02:27.270 --> 00:02:28.270
  • on that mountain,
  • 00:02:28.270 --> 00:02:29.220
  • on a hill far away,
  • 00:02:29.220 --> 00:02:32.040
  • but it's not so far from here.
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:34.010
  • Stood an old, rugged cross.
  • 00:02:34.010 --> 00:02:36.080
  • The emblem of suffering
  • 00:02:36.080 --> 00:02:38.020
  • and shame,
  • 00:02:38.020 --> 00:02:38.290
  • and I love that old cross,
  • 00:02:38.290 --> 00:02:40.160
  • where God's dearest and best,
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:42.260
  • for a world of lost sinners,
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:45.070
  • was slain.
  • 00:02:45.070 --> 00:02:46.030
  • I was one of those sinners,
  • 00:02:46.030 --> 00:02:47.270
  • that Jesus died
  • 00:02:47.270 --> 00:02:49.100
  • on the cross for me,
  • 00:02:49.100 --> 00:02:51.200
  • shed His blood,
  • 00:02:51.200 --> 00:02:53.020
  • paid the price,
  • 00:02:53.020 --> 00:02:54.080
  • and I proclaim
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:55.160
  • from this city today,
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:56.260
  • worthy is the Lamb
  • 00:02:56.260 --> 00:02:58.030
  • that was slain.
  • 00:02:58.030 --> 00:02:58.250
  • He didn't just die
  • 00:02:58.250 --> 00:02:59.220
  • in this city,
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:00.230
  • but Jesus rose
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:01.240
  • from the dead in this city,
  • 00:03:01.240 --> 00:03:03.170
  • and He is alive.
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:05.170
  • He's alive today,
  • 00:03:05.170 --> 00:03:07.220
  • and He's real,
  • 00:03:07.220 --> 00:03:08.260
  • and He can change your world,
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:11.020
  • and change your life,
  • 00:03:11.020 --> 00:03:12.070
  • and change your situation.
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:14.110
  • And I've got an amazing
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.050
  • pastor with me.
  • 00:03:15.050 --> 00:03:16.190
  • I really stand in awe
  • 00:03:16.190 --> 00:03:18.060
  • of what God is doing
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:22.090
  • in the city of Jerusalem,
  • 00:03:22.090 --> 00:03:23.210
  • in the nation of Israel,
  • 00:03:23.210 --> 00:03:25.100
  • and He has to have people
  • 00:03:25.100 --> 00:03:26.080
  • that He works through.
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:28.020
  • And this is one of the --
  • 00:03:28.020 --> 00:03:30.150
  • he would never say this,
  • 00:03:30.150 --> 00:03:31.210
  • but I'm gonna say it,
  • 00:03:31.210 --> 00:03:32.180
  • he's one of
  • 00:03:32.180 --> 00:03:33.010
  • the spiritual giants,
  • 00:03:33.010 --> 00:03:35.030
  • so instrumental
  • 00:03:35.030 --> 00:03:36.220
  • in even the studio,
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:38.260
  • in the TBN studio
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:40.070
  • that I'm in.
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:41.190
  • You know, he's been a major part
  • 00:03:41.190 --> 00:03:42.250
  • of that being established here
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:44.170
  • in the city of Jerusalem,
  • 00:03:44.170 --> 00:03:46.070
  • and pastors an amazing church,
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:48.110
  • right here in the heart
  • 00:03:48.110 --> 00:03:49.100
  • of Jerusalem.
  • 00:03:49.100 --> 00:03:50.090
  • It's a delight to have
  • 00:03:50.090 --> 00:03:51.040
  • Pastor Samuel Smadja

  • with us.
  • 00:03:53.150 --> 00:03:54.110
  • He's a friend,
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:55.060
  • and does amazing work
  • 00:03:55.060 --> 00:03:56.290

  • Thank you for being with us.
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:02.040
  • - Shalom,
  • 00:04:02.040 --> 00:04:02.270
  • and welcome to Jerusalem.
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:04.120
  • - How long have
  • 00:04:04.120 --> 00:04:04.290
  • you been pastoring here
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:05.230
  • in Jerusalem?
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:06.210
  • - I'm in my fourth year,
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:08.280
  • and my father established --
  • 00:04:08.280 --> 00:04:10.100
  • it was one
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:11.140
  • of the first Messianic
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.210
  • congregations here in the land,
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:14.030
  • and he passed away,
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:16.110
  • and I took his place, and --
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:19.140
  • - So you've been
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:20.060
  • a businessman,
  • 00:04:20.060 --> 00:04:20.290
  • a very successful businessman,
  • 00:04:20.290 --> 00:04:22.250
  • right here for decades --
  • 00:04:22.250 --> 00:04:24.270
  • - By the grace
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:25.120
  • of God, yes.
  • 00:04:25.120 --> 00:04:26.050
  • - -- but now,
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:26.210
  • you wear a different mantle.
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:27.290
  • - I wear both.
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:29.030
  • - That's amazing,
  • 00:04:29.030 --> 00:04:29.190
  • just like the Apostle Paul.
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:31.110
  • You know, he made tents,
  • 00:04:31.110 --> 00:04:32.290
  • but he also was
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:35.160
  • a profound preacher.
  • 00:04:35.160 --> 00:04:37.020
  • - You see, I believe
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:38.050
  • that the return
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:38.180
  • of the Jewish people
  • 00:04:38.180 --> 00:04:39.240
  • to Israel is --
  • 00:04:39.240 --> 00:04:40.210
  • yes, it's the return to Zion,
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:43.230
  • it's the return to Israel,
  • 00:04:43.230 --> 00:04:45.120
  • but when we read the prophecy,
  • 00:04:45.120 --> 00:04:47.280
  • the return of the Jewish
  • 00:04:47.280 --> 00:04:48.240
  • people has to do
  • 00:04:48.240 --> 00:04:49.200
  • with a change of heart,
  • 00:04:49.200 --> 00:04:51.010
  • has to do --
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:51.210
  • that the people of Israel
  • 00:04:51.210 --> 00:04:52.150
  • will return to their gods,
  • 00:04:52.150 --> 00:04:54.130
  • and that's what I wanna be
  • 00:04:54.130 --> 00:04:56.150
  • involved in.
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:57.230
  • - Well, you know,
  • 00:04:57.230 --> 00:05:00.020
  • I'm here in Israel this week,
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:01.190
  • and we've been
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:03.010
  • with you a lot of that,
  • 00:05:03.010 --> 00:05:04.150
  • but the Lord kinda sent me
  • 00:05:04.150 --> 00:05:06.040
  • on a mission with a team
  • 00:05:06.040 --> 00:05:07.180
  • to bless and comfort Israel.
  • 00:05:08.060 --> 00:05:11.060
  • This scripture came alive
  • 00:05:11.060 --> 00:05:12.190
  • to me recently in Isaiah 40,
  • 00:05:12.190 --> 00:05:15.170
  • where God said:
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:17.150
  • "'Comfort ye, yes,
  • 00:05:17.150 --> 00:05:19.010
  • comfort ye My people,'
  • 00:05:19.010 --> 00:05:20.280
  • says the Lord."
  • 00:05:20.280 --> 00:05:22.100
  • And then, He speaks
  • 00:05:22.100 --> 00:05:22.270
  • about the city.
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:24.130
  • He said, "Speak comfort
  • 00:05:24.130 --> 00:05:25.190
  • to Jerusalem,
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:26.220
  • cry out to her,
  • 00:05:26.220 --> 00:05:28.210
  • that her warfare is ended,
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:31.010
  • that her iniquity is pardoned:
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:33.020
  • that she is received
  • 00:05:33.020 --> 00:05:35.170
  • from the Lord's hand
  • 00:05:35.170 --> 00:05:36.250
  • double for all her sins."
  • 00:05:37.090 --> 00:05:40.090
  • And Isaiah 40 has always
  • 00:05:40.090 --> 00:05:43.040
  • been one of my favorites,
  • 00:05:43.040 --> 00:05:44.130
  • of course, the more
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:46.030
  • famous part of the chapter
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:47.090
  • is where he says,
  • 00:05:47.090 --> 00:05:49.080
  • you know: "They that wait
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:50.070
  • upon the Lord
  • 00:05:50.070 --> 00:05:50.280
  • shall renew their strength.
  • 00:05:50.280 --> 00:05:53.010
  • They shall mount up
  • 00:05:53.010 --> 00:05:54.020
  • with wings as eagles.
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.210
  • They shall run,
  • 00:05:55.210 --> 00:05:56.280
  • and not be weary."
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.030
  • But the Lord spoke
  • 00:05:58.030 --> 00:05:59.110
  • to my heart, Pastor Samuel,
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:01.080
  • and said, "I wanna
  • 00:06:01.080 --> 00:06:02.170
  • raise up a ministry,
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:03.230
  • and I want you to call it
  • 00:06:03.230 --> 00:06:04.240
  • Comfort My People.
  • 00:06:04.240 --> 00:06:06.200
  • And I want you to find
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:07.190
  • ways to comfort
  • 00:06:07.190 --> 00:06:09.260
  • the nation of Israel,"
  • 00:06:09.260 --> 00:06:11.050
  • and that will be through,
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:13.000
  • you know, things that we've done
  • 00:06:13.000 --> 00:06:15.000
  • like the Holocaust center
  • 00:06:15.000 --> 00:06:16.290
  • that we've helped build here,
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:18.180
  • and we're working down
  • 00:06:18.180 --> 00:06:20.040
  • on the border,
  • 00:06:20.040 --> 00:06:21.130
  • off of the Gaza Strip,
  • 00:06:21.130 --> 00:06:22.200
  • for some of the families
  • 00:06:22.200 --> 00:06:23.220
  • down there.
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:25.040
  • And we're building
  • 00:06:25.040 --> 00:06:25.240
  • a trauma center down there,
  • 00:06:26.100 --> 00:06:29.100
  • and we're also working
  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:30.010
  • through local ministries,
  • 00:06:30.010 --> 00:06:31.220
  • feeding the hungry and so on.
  • 00:06:31.220 --> 00:06:33.160
  • We're doing everything
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:34.120
  • that we can find that's real,
  • 00:06:34.120 --> 00:06:36.150
  • that's pure,
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:37.080
  • that's comforting the people,
  • 00:06:37.080 --> 00:06:38.290
  • but one of the ways
  • 00:06:38.290 --> 00:06:40.040
  • that we must comfort
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:41.030
  • the people is to tell them
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:43.270
  • about Messiah.
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:45.010
  • - Exactly.
  • 00:06:45.010 --> 00:06:45.250
  • - We can't do all
  • 00:06:45.250 --> 00:06:46.200
  • of those things and not preach
  • 00:06:46.200 --> 00:06:48.070
  • the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:06:48.070 --> 00:06:51.020
  • Paul said, "I am not ashamed
  • 00:06:51.090 --> 00:06:54.090
  • of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."
  • 00:06:54.090 --> 00:06:56.200
  • Messiah has to be proclaimed,
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:58.240
  • the death, the burial,
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:00.040
  • the resurrection
  • 00:07:00.040 --> 00:07:01.170
  • has to be proclaimed.
  • 00:07:01.170 --> 00:07:03.090
  • How do we do that?
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:04.160
  • You've been doing that,
  • 00:07:04.160 --> 00:07:05.280
  • and you're affiliated with many,
  • 00:07:05.280 --> 00:07:07.150
  • many ministries that are doing
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:08.170
  • that right here
  • 00:07:08.170 --> 00:07:09.150
  • in the heart of Jerusalem,
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:10.170
  • and all over the nation.
  • 00:07:10.170 --> 00:07:11.280
  • How do we reach people
  • 00:07:11.280 --> 00:07:13.230
  • with the Gospel?
  • 00:07:13.230 --> 00:07:16.100
  • - First of all,
  • 00:07:16.100 --> 00:07:16.290
  • a few words about Isaiah.
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:19.120
  • Isaiah says, "Comfort,
  • 00:07:19.120 --> 00:07:20.290
  • comfort My people."
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:22.000
  • And when we read the Bible,
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:22.250
  • we always have to ask ourself,
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:25.190
  • who does --
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:26.140
  • God is talking to?
  • 00:07:26.140 --> 00:07:27.240
  • Does God talk to you, Isaiah,
  • 00:07:27.240 --> 00:07:29.280
  • you comfort My people?
  • 00:07:29.280 --> 00:07:32.000
  • Not in the Hebrew,
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:32.230
  • because the word
  • 00:07:32.230 --> 00:07:33.120
  • in the Hebrew is in plural,
  • 00:07:33.120 --> 00:07:35.110
  • which means God is talking
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:36.190
  • to a group of people,
  • 00:07:36.190 --> 00:07:38.040
  • and He tells the group
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.010
  • of people to,
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:39.200
  • "Comfort My people."
  • 00:07:39.200 --> 00:07:41.080
  • Now, who's the group of people?
  • 00:07:41.080 --> 00:07:43.120
  • Can we comfort ourself?
  • 00:07:43.120 --> 00:07:45.000
  • When you're in trouble,
  • 00:07:45.000 --> 00:07:45.200
  • you hardly can comfort yourself.
  • 00:07:45.200 --> 00:07:47.210
  • You usually look for comfort
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:49.000
  • from other people,
  • 00:07:49.000 --> 00:07:49.240
  • to come and comfort you.
  • 00:07:49.240 --> 00:07:50.290
  • - That's right.
  • 00:07:50.290 --> 00:07:51.130
  • - So there's no doubt
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:52.060
  • that God is talking to a group
  • 00:07:52.060 --> 00:07:53.210
  • that physically doesn't belong
  • 00:07:53.210 --> 00:07:55.150
  • to the people of Israel,
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:56.280
  • and He tells them,
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:58.130
  • "Comfort My people."
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:07:59.130
  • And I believe that that group
  • 00:07:59.130 --> 00:08:00.110
  • is the same group
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:01.070
  • that He's talking in Psalm 122,
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:04.260
  • and He calls that group
  • 00:08:04.260 --> 00:08:05.280
  • the tribes of God.
  • 00:08:05.280 --> 00:08:07.120
  • Not a people
  • 00:08:07.120 --> 00:08:09.110
  • from the tribes of Israel,
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:10.260
  • not the people
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:11.120
  • of the tribes of Judah,
  • 00:08:11.120 --> 00:08:12.250
  • but the people
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:13.120
  • who are the tribes of God.
  • 00:08:13.120 --> 00:08:14.290
  • People from the nation
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:16.170
  • that believes
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:17.110
  • in the God of Abraham,
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:18.020
  • Isaac, and Jacob, and He says,
  • 00:08:18.020 --> 00:08:19.110
  • "You, My tribe,
  • 00:08:19.110 --> 00:08:20.270
  • comfort My people."
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:22.130
  • Now, how do we comfort?
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:23.130
  • What's the message?
  • 00:08:23.130 --> 00:08:24.150
  • He says, the answer
  • 00:08:24.150 --> 00:08:26.100
  • is in the message there.
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:28.170
  • He says, "Tell her
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:30.090
  • that her sin was forgiven."
  • 00:08:30.090 --> 00:08:32.110
  • Tell her that I paid double,
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:35.150
  • somebody paid double,
  • 00:08:35.150 --> 00:08:37.120
  • for all her iniquity.
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:38.290
  • And that's our message.
  • 00:08:38.290 --> 00:08:40.090
  • Our message
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:40.220
  • is we're not here
  • 00:08:40.220 --> 00:08:41.290
  • to convert Jews to Christianity.
  • 00:08:41.290 --> 00:08:44.180
  • We're not here to bring
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:46.290
  • cut-and-paste of this church
  • 00:08:46.290 --> 00:08:48.170
  • or that church,
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:49.160
  • and the theology,
  • 00:08:49.160 --> 00:08:51.040
  • Western theology, to Israel.
  • 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:53.020
  • We have to bring
  • 00:08:53.020 --> 00:08:54.000
  • a message of comfort,
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:55.080
  • to tell the Jewish people,
  • 00:08:55.080 --> 00:08:56.160
  • God brought you to the land,
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:59.100
  • but that's just the beginning.
  • 00:08:59.100 --> 00:09:01.100
  • He has much more
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:03.020
  • He wants to show you,
  • 00:09:03.020 --> 00:09:05.270
  • and help you to understand
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:07.040
  • that there's no temple,
  • 00:09:07.040 --> 00:09:08.240
  • there's no --
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.020
  • Today, let's look behind us.
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:11.190
  • The temple is not there.
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:12.270
  • How do the Jewish people
  • 00:09:12.270 --> 00:09:13.210
  • get forgiveness?
  • 00:09:13.210 --> 00:09:15.120
  • That's the message.
  • 00:09:15.120 --> 00:09:17.000
  • They're here, 2.000 years,
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:19.010
  • with no temple,
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:19.260
  • with no assurance
  • 00:09:19.260 --> 00:09:20.200
  • of forgiveness,
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:22.110
  • with no altar,
  • 00:09:22.110 --> 00:09:23.180
  • with no high priest.
  • 00:09:23.180 --> 00:09:25.200
  • How do they get comfort?
  • 00:09:25.200 --> 00:09:27.020
  • And Isaiah tells them,
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:28.120
  • "We have a message for you.
  • 00:09:28.120 --> 00:09:31.050
  • Your sin has been forgiven."
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:33.050
  • - How?
  • 00:09:33.050 --> 00:09:34.080
  • - That's the biggest question.
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.140
  • I don't know if you know,
  • 00:09:35.140 --> 00:09:36.200
  • but there is a big debate
  • 00:09:36.200 --> 00:09:38.020
  • in Rabbinical Judaism.
  • 00:09:38.020 --> 00:09:40.000
  • One of the biggest rabbis,
  • 00:09:40.000 --> 00:09:42.120
  • his name was Yohanan ben Zakkai.
  • 00:09:42.120 --> 00:09:44.050
  • When he was on his death bed,
  • 00:09:44.060 --> 00:09:47.060
  • his disciple came
  • 00:09:47.060 --> 00:09:48.120
  • to him and said --
  • 00:09:48.120 --> 00:09:49.160
  • like Yeshua had disciples,
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:51.000
  • every rabbi has disciples.
  • 00:09:51.000 --> 00:09:52.170
  • And his disciple came
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:53.180
  • to him and said, "Rabbi,
  • 00:09:53.180 --> 00:09:54.100
  • you're gonna die.
  • 00:09:54.100 --> 00:09:56.020
  • Are you sure
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.270
  • you're going to heaven?"
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:09:59.060
  • And the rabbi said,
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:01.010
  • "I'm not sure I did enough."
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:03.130
  • You have to understand,
  • 00:10:03.130 --> 00:10:06.090
  • the moment the temple
  • 00:10:06.090 --> 00:10:07.180
  • was destroyed,
  • 00:10:07.180 --> 00:10:08.160
  • the Sanhedrin came up
  • 00:10:08.160 --> 00:10:09.260
  • with a new system,
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:11.090
  • a system of merit.
  • 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:13.180
  • You do good, you get good.
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:15.250
  • There is a ladder
  • 00:10:15.250 --> 00:10:16.210
  • of righteousness
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:17.140
  • that you have to climb,
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:18.220
  • and maybe, hopefully,
  • 00:10:18.220 --> 00:10:21.220
  • you did good,
  • 00:10:21.220 --> 00:10:22.230
  • and in the Feast of Trumpets,
  • 00:10:22.230 --> 00:10:24.140
  • Rosh Hashanah,
  • 00:10:24.140 --> 00:10:25.220
  • the Jewish New Year,
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:26.290
  • God opens three books,
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:30.130
  • and He weighs your good stuff
  • 00:10:30.130 --> 00:10:32.270
  • against your bad stuff.
  • 00:10:32.270 --> 00:10:34.070
  • So if it's like that,
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:34.270
  • it's easy.
  • 00:10:34.270 --> 00:10:36.000
  • If you did so much good
  • 00:10:36.000 --> 00:10:37.220
  • and so little bad,
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:38.290
  • it's easy for God.
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:40.280
  • If you did so much bad,
  • 00:10:40.280 --> 00:10:42.200
  • and so little good,
  • 00:10:42.200 --> 00:10:44.030
  • it's also easy.
  • 00:10:44.030 --> 00:10:45.110
  • But what happens
  • 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:46.000
  • if you're like this?
  • 00:10:46.000 --> 00:10:48.200
  • So then, the rabbi says,
  • 00:10:48.200 --> 00:10:50.140
  • "You have the ten days
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:51.060
  • of awe between Rosh Hashanah
  • 00:10:51.060 --> 00:10:52.130
  • and the Day of Atonement."
  • 00:10:52.130 --> 00:10:53.220
  • By the way, everybody --
  • 00:10:53.220 --> 00:10:56.030
  • Many of us
  • 00:10:56.030 --> 00:10:56.190
  • are making the mistake.
  • 00:10:56.190 --> 00:10:57.060
  • The day of judgment is the day,
  • 00:10:57.060 --> 00:10:58.260
  • the Feast of Trumpets,
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:00.150
  • Rosh Hashanah,
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:01.070
  • the Jewish New Year.
  • 00:11:01.070 --> 00:11:02.100
  • Then, you have the ten days
  • 00:11:02.100 --> 00:11:04.010
  • 'til Yom Kippur,
  • 00:11:04.010 --> 00:11:05.280
  • the Day of Atonement.
  • 00:11:05.280 --> 00:11:07.190
  • And there, the Jewish people
  • 00:11:07.190 --> 00:11:09.030
  • are working hard to do enough
  • 00:11:09.030 --> 00:11:10.250
  • good deeds to tilt the scale,
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:14.190
  • and our message is
  • 00:11:14.190 --> 00:11:16.010
  • that as much as you climb up,
  • 00:11:16.010 --> 00:11:18.150
  • you will never climb --
  • 00:11:18.150 --> 00:11:20.290
  • if this rabbi
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:21.270
  • did not climb it --
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:23.150
  • if he didn't have
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:24.020
  • an assurance of forgiveness,
  • 00:11:24.020 --> 00:11:26.230
  • we don't have a message
  • 00:11:26.230 --> 00:11:27.260
  • of comforting.
  • 00:11:27.260 --> 00:11:29.030
  • And we have to say that as --
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:31.070
  • to the Jewish people,
  • 00:11:31.070 --> 00:11:32.180
  • and I have to say
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:33.170
  • to the Jewish people,
  • 00:11:33.170 --> 00:11:34.280
  • as hard as it is,
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:36.140
  • you'll never do enough.
  • 00:11:36.140 --> 00:11:38.200
  • You'll never do enough,
  • 00:11:38.200 --> 00:11:40.020
  • and that's why Yeshua,
  • 00:11:40.020 --> 00:11:41.160
  • in the Sermon of the Mount,
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:43.000
  • when He was talking
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:43.150
  • to the Jewish people,
  • 00:11:43.150 --> 00:11:45.080
  • and He was talking
  • 00:11:45.080 --> 00:11:47.140
  • about the law.
  • 00:11:47.140 --> 00:11:48.190
  • Think about it.
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:50.090
  • On the Mount of Beatitudes,
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:52.000
  • He had the people around Him,
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:53.240
  • and He took the law,
  • 00:11:53.240 --> 00:11:55.130
  • and what did He do to the law?
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:56.170
  • He says, "You guys,"
  • 00:11:56.170 --> 00:11:57.270
  • and He mainly talked
  • 00:11:57.270 --> 00:11:58.220
  • to the Pharisees
  • 00:11:58.220 --> 00:11:59.180
  • and to the rabbis,
  • 00:11:59.180 --> 00:12:00.170
  • because the average person
  • 00:12:00.170 --> 00:12:01.270
  • did not --
  • 00:12:01.270 --> 00:12:02.240
  • they didn't have the Bible
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:03.230
  • that they could every morning
  • 00:12:03.230 --> 00:12:04.280
  • study the Bible.
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:06.240
  • So they would go
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:07.220
  • to the synagogue
  • 00:12:07.220 --> 00:12:09.010
  • and they would learn
  • 00:12:09.010 --> 00:12:09.290
  • what the rabbi tells them.
  • 00:12:09.290 --> 00:12:10.290
  • So He would tell the rabbis,
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:11.280
  • "You think you keep the law?
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:14.020
  • You think that you did enough?
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:16.120
  • Let Me tell you, Me,
  • 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:17.130
  • who wrote the law.
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:18.140
  • I was the Word.
  • 00:12:18.140 --> 00:12:20.150
  • Me, who wrote the law,
  • 00:12:20.150 --> 00:12:21.240
  • let Me tell you
  • 00:12:21.240 --> 00:12:22.110
  • what I really meant."
  • 00:12:22.110 --> 00:12:23.200
  • And He takes the law,
  • 00:12:23.200 --> 00:12:24.240
  • and He elevates the law,
  • 00:12:24.240 --> 00:12:27.000
  • He says,
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:27.150
  • "Do not commit adultery.
  • 00:12:27.150 --> 00:12:29.270
  • Let Me tell you.
  • 00:12:29.270 --> 00:12:30.250
  • If you only look on a lady,
  • 00:12:30.250 --> 00:12:32.180
  • you already committed the," --
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:33.270
  • He brings the law to a place
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.240
  • where we're all guilty,
  • 00:12:35.240 --> 00:12:37.240
  • to show, guys, there needs
  • 00:12:37.240 --> 00:12:40.000
  • to be a different solution.
  • 00:12:40.000 --> 00:12:41.230
  • Your righteousness
  • 00:12:41.230 --> 00:12:42.170
  • is not good.
  • 00:12:42.170 --> 00:12:43.140
  • You're trying to do good.
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:44.210
  • Morally, it's maybe okay,
  • 00:12:44.210 --> 00:12:46.250
  • but for Me,
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:48.070
  • it's not good enough.
  • 00:12:48.070 --> 00:12:49.170
  • You see, for the Jewish people,
  • 00:12:49.170 --> 00:12:51.140
  • they have several obstacles.
  • 00:12:51.140 --> 00:12:53.070
  • When we wanna talk,
  • 00:12:53.070 --> 00:12:54.060
  • when we wanna do evangelism,
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:55.140
  • when we wanna bring
  • 00:12:55.140 --> 00:12:57.010
  • a Jewish Messiah
  • 00:12:57.010 --> 00:12:58.060
  • to the Jewish people,
  • 00:12:58.060 --> 00:12:59.080
  • first of all,
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:12:59.270
  • we have to do what Yeshua
  • 00:12:59.270 --> 00:13:01.000
  • did in the Mountain,
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:02.260
  • to show them that there's no way
  • 00:13:02.260 --> 00:13:05.140
  • you'll do enough.
  • 00:13:05.140 --> 00:13:06.020
  • And by the way,
  • 00:13:06.020 --> 00:13:06.190
  • not only for the Jews.
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:08.050
  • Let's be honest.
  • 00:13:08.050 --> 00:13:09.060
  • You have self-righteous people
  • 00:13:09.060 --> 00:13:11.010
  • in your church
  • 00:13:11.010 --> 00:13:11.280
  • that think that because
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.100
  • they're a good Christian,
  • 00:13:13.100 --> 00:13:14.050
  • they did enough.
  • 00:13:14.050 --> 00:13:16.120
  • So the first thing
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:16.280
  • we have to show them,
  • 00:13:16.280 --> 00:13:17.290
  • that the system of works
  • 00:13:17.290 --> 00:13:20.260
  • won't work.
  • 00:13:20.260 --> 00:13:23.160
  • God has to have a difference.
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:25.170
  • Then, the issue is
  • 00:13:25.170 --> 00:13:27.150
  • who the Messiah is.
  • 00:13:27.150 --> 00:13:28.280
  • What's the role of the Messiah?
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.210
  • We claim that the man
  • 00:13:30.210 --> 00:13:31.260
  • from Nazareth, you and me,
  • 00:13:31.260 --> 00:13:34.120
  • the Son of the Carpenter,
  • 00:13:34.120 --> 00:13:35.250
  • is the Messiah.
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:37.230
  • We claim that He's divine.
  • 00:13:37.230 --> 00:13:40.180
  • We claim that He had to die
  • 00:13:40.180 --> 00:13:42.090
  • for our sin.
  • 00:13:42.090 --> 00:13:44.160
  • Let's -- you know,
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:45.190
  • for Jewish people,
  • 00:13:45.190 --> 00:13:46.090
  • those are very,
  • 00:13:46.090 --> 00:13:46.250
  • very hard things.
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:48.080
  • First of all, where do you see
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:49.270
  • a divine Messiah?
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:51.250
  • Yeshua was not crucified,
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:54.110
  • Jesus was not crucified,
  • 00:13:54.110 --> 00:13:55.170
  • because of His teaching.
  • 00:13:55.170 --> 00:13:57.110
  • He was not crucified
  • 00:13:57.110 --> 00:13:58.070
  • because the Sermon
  • 00:13:58.070 --> 00:13:58.270
  • on the Mountain.
  • 00:13:58.270 --> 00:14:00.020
  • His teaching was a very,
  • 00:14:00.020 --> 00:14:01.000
  • very Jewish teaching.
  • 00:14:01.000 --> 00:14:02.210
  • What caused His crucifixion?
  • 00:14:02.210 --> 00:14:04.210
  • He said, "Me
  • 00:14:04.210 --> 00:14:05.070
  • and My Father are one.
  • 00:14:05.070 --> 00:14:07.010
  • No one comes
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:07.180
  • to the Father but Me."
  • 00:14:07.180 --> 00:14:09.130
  • He says, "Get up,
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:10.250
  • pick up your bed,
  • 00:14:10.250 --> 00:14:11.160
  • your sins are forgiven."
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:13.040
  • Those are very hard things
  • 00:14:13.040 --> 00:14:15.090
  • for a Jewish ear.
  • 00:14:15.090 --> 00:14:17.160
  • A divine Messiah,
  • 00:14:17.160 --> 00:14:18.220
  • Me and My Father are one?
  • 00:14:18.220 --> 00:14:20.200
  • Where do you see that God --
  • 00:14:20.200 --> 00:14:23.070
  • like John says,
  • 00:14:23.070 --> 00:14:24.030
  • John in John 1 says
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:25.050
  • that God wore flesh and blood,
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:27.070
  • and came and dwelt among us.
  • 00:14:27.070 --> 00:14:29.120
  • Where do you see this
  • 00:14:29.120 --> 00:14:30.000
  • in the Old Testament?
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:31.070
  • So we need to show them,
  • 00:14:31.220 --> 00:14:34.220
  • through the scriptures,
  • 00:14:34.220 --> 00:14:37.000
  • through the Old Testament,
  • 00:14:37.000 --> 00:14:38.210
  • and the prophets,
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:39.200
  • that the idea
  • 00:14:39.220 --> 00:14:42.220
  • of a divine Messiah
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:44.000
  • is not a new idea.
  • 00:14:44.000 --> 00:14:45.150
  • It was not John standing
  • 00:14:45.150 --> 00:14:47.060
  • in the deserts of here,
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:48.080
  • in Judea,
  • 00:14:48.080 --> 00:14:49.280
  • and the heat struck
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:51.250
  • his head, and he came up
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:52.260
  • with a new idea.
  • 00:14:52.260 --> 00:14:54.000
  • It's a biblical idea.
  • 00:14:54.000 --> 00:14:55.290
  • Then, the whole idea of,
  • 00:14:55.290 --> 00:14:58.100
  • you know, you've been
  • 00:14:58.100 --> 00:15:01.080
  • to Israel several times,
  • 00:15:01.080 --> 00:15:02.230
  • your people walked
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:03.100
  • in the streets
  • 00:15:03.100 --> 00:15:04.020
  • of the Via Dolorosa,
  • 00:15:04.020 --> 00:15:05.080
  • here in the Old City.
  • 00:15:05.080 --> 00:15:07.000
  • I'm not sure that people
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:08.110
  • ask themselves,
  • 00:15:08.110 --> 00:15:09.010
  • why did He had
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:09.230
  • to suffer and die?
  • 00:15:09.230 --> 00:15:10.190
  • The old says, "Wow.
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:12.010
  • Praise God, He suffered
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:12.240
  • and died."
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:13.260
  • But the whole concept
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:14.280
  • of a suffering Messiah,
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:16.270
  • if we think about it,
  • 00:15:16.270 --> 00:15:18.140
  • was not a clear concept
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:20.170
  • to the disciples.
  • 00:15:20.170 --> 00:15:22.030
  • They were with Him,
  • 00:15:22.030 --> 00:15:22.290
  • they were the Bible school.
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:25.020
  • They studied with the master
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:26.080
  • for three years.
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:27.290
  • When He came up to Jerusalem,
  • 00:15:27.290 --> 00:15:29.100
  • they did not understand
  • 00:15:29.100 --> 00:15:30.250
  • the cross.
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:32.230
  • We remember the story
  • 00:15:32.230 --> 00:15:34.000
  • that the mother
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:34.240
  • of James and John,
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:36.080
  • as a good Jewish mother,
  • 00:15:36.080 --> 00:15:38.010
  • comes up to Jerusalem,
  • 00:15:38.010 --> 00:15:39.250
  • and she sees
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:40.090
  • the hills of Jerusalem,
  • 00:15:40.090 --> 00:15:42.200
  • you know, as they walk,
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:43.250
  • and she comes to Yeshua
  • 00:15:43.250 --> 00:15:45.030
  • and she says,
  • 00:15:45.030 --> 00:15:45.200
  • "Yeshua, listen.
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:46.100
  • We're going up to Jerusalem.
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:47.180
  • You know, I took care of You,
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:48.290
  • I cooked You, I --
  • 00:15:48.290 --> 00:15:50.030
  • I took a three days journey,
  • 00:15:50.030 --> 00:15:52.280
  • three to four days."
  • 00:15:52.280 --> 00:15:54.220
  • And she said, "Listen,
  • 00:15:54.220 --> 00:15:55.190
  • do me a favor.
  • 00:15:55.190 --> 00:15:57.140
  • When You get up there,
  • 00:15:57.140 --> 00:15:59.140
  • put my son,
  • 00:15:59.140 --> 00:15:59.290
  • one on the right side,
  • 00:15:59.290 --> 00:16:01.010
  • one on the left side."
  • 00:16:01.010 --> 00:16:02.140
  • What she had in mind?
  • 00:16:02.140 --> 00:16:04.070
  • They all understood
  • 00:16:04.070 --> 00:16:05.220
  • that the Messiah should come
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:08.000
  • and rule in Jerusalem,
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:09.210
  • sit in the temple,
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:10.290
  • cast the enemies
  • 00:16:10.290 --> 00:16:13.150
  • out of Jerusalem,
  • 00:16:13.150 --> 00:16:15.000
  • and rebuild the throne of David.
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:19.080
  • She didn't say,
  • 00:16:19.080 --> 00:16:19.240
  • "Make sure that one,
  • 00:16:19.240 --> 00:16:22.060
  • my son will be on your right,
  • 00:16:22.060 --> 00:16:24.210
  • on the cross,
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:25.090
  • and the other one on the left."
  • 00:16:25.090 --> 00:16:26.100
  • She wanted them,
  • 00:16:26.100 --> 00:16:27.020
  • one to be the minister
  • 00:16:27.020 --> 00:16:27.210
  • of finance, the other one,
  • 00:16:27.210 --> 00:16:28.180
  • minister of foreign affairs.
  • 00:16:28.180 --> 00:16:31.160
  • So the whole concept
  • 00:16:31.160 --> 00:16:32.130
  • of a suffering Messiah
  • 00:16:32.130 --> 00:16:33.160
  • was unknown.
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:34.250
  • Even John the Baptist --
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:36.060
  • I'm sorry, I'm preaching,
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:37.170
  • but also, it's very interesting
  • 00:16:37.170 --> 00:16:38.140
  • to see the answer of Yeshua.
  • 00:16:38.140 --> 00:16:40.200
  • He said, "Tell John,"
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:41.160
  • not that, "I'm the Messiah,"
  • 00:16:41.160 --> 00:16:42.180
  • He said, "Tell John
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:45.040
  • that the blind can see,
  • 00:16:45.040 --> 00:16:46.240
  • the lame can," --
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:47.270
  • - Fulfilling the scriptures.
  • 00:16:47.270 --> 00:16:48.150
  • - Fulfilling
  • 00:16:48.150 --> 00:16:49.000
  • the Old Testament.
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:49.290
  • So when we --
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:50.270
  • - You know, the reason
  • 00:16:50.270 --> 00:16:51.150
  • I believe in Jesus Christ,
  • 00:16:51.150 --> 00:16:53.020
  • number one, is I believe it
  • 00:16:53.020 --> 00:16:55.240
  • because it's a historical fact,
  • 00:16:55.240 --> 00:16:58.200
  • Jesus lived here.
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:00.060
  • You can't dispute --
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:01.090
  • - We cannot deny that.
  • 00:17:01.090 --> 00:17:01.290
  • - The miracles
  • 00:17:01.290 --> 00:17:02.170
  • are documented.
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:03.150
  • The life of Christ
  • 00:17:03.150 --> 00:17:05.110
  • is documented, thoroughly.
  • 00:17:06.030 --> 00:17:09.030
  • But, I also believe
  • 00:17:09.030 --> 00:17:10.020
  • not only because historically,
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:12.250
  • it's proven, but scripturally,
  • 00:17:12.250 --> 00:17:15.010
  • for example, in Psalms 22,
  • 00:17:15.120 --> 00:17:18.120
  • I was reading this last night.
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:20.140
  • I don't know why
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:21.100
  • I fell upon this.
  • 00:17:21.100 --> 00:17:23.170
  • Psalms 22.
  • 00:17:23.170 --> 00:17:25.020
  • That's why I felt
  • 00:17:25.020 --> 00:17:25.200
  • I had to go pray
  • 00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:26.120
  • this morning at the wall,
  • 00:17:26.120 --> 00:17:28.000
  • because I was reminded
  • 00:17:28.000 --> 00:17:29.160
  • that Calvary and Jesus
  • 00:17:29.160 --> 00:17:32.020
  • dying on the cross
  • 00:17:32.020 --> 00:17:33.130
  • was not something that --
  • 00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:34.270
  • a last-minute thought.
  • 00:17:34.270 --> 00:17:36.200
  • - Was not a mistake.
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:37.090
  • - It was prophesied
  • 00:17:37.090 --> 00:17:38.160
  • in incredible accuracy
  • 00:17:39.050 --> 00:17:42.050
  • in Psalms 22, what, 1.500 years
  • 00:17:42.110 --> 00:17:45.110
  • before it ever happened.
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:46.110
  • I want you to listen to this,
  • 00:17:46.110 --> 00:17:48.070
  • it just moved me
  • 00:17:48.070 --> 00:17:49.240
  • to tears today,
  • 00:17:49.240 --> 00:17:51.000
  • early this morning.
  • 00:17:51.000 --> 00:17:52.280
  • He starts out by saying:
  • 00:17:52.280 --> 00:17:54.170
  • "My God," --
  • 00:17:54.170 --> 00:17:55.220
  • this is David.
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:56.180
  • David climbs into the psyche
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:18:00.020
  • of Messiah dying on the cross,
  • 00:18:00.180 --> 00:18:03.180
  • Yeshua dying on the cross,
  • 00:18:03.180 --> 00:18:05.150
  • and he begins to see Calvary,
  • 00:18:06.130 --> 00:18:09.130
  • 1.500 years before,
  • 00:18:09.130 --> 00:18:11.030
  • prophetically, and even utters
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:12.140
  • the words that Jesus
  • 00:18:12.140 --> 00:18:13.180
  • uttered when He was dying.
  • 00:18:13.180 --> 00:18:15.150
  • It starts off:
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:16.120
  • "My God, my God,
  • 00:18:16.120 --> 00:18:17.250
  • why have You forsaken me?"
  • 00:18:17.250 --> 00:18:19.240
  • This happened right behind me.
  • 00:18:19.240 --> 00:18:21.060
  • - Just behind us, yes.
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:22.130
  • - "Why are You so far
  • 00:18:22.130 --> 00:18:23.150
  • from helping me?"
  • 00:18:23.150 --> 00:18:25.040
  • He goes in to describing,
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:26.130
  • "I'm poured out like water.
  • 00:18:26.130 --> 00:18:28.220
  • My bones are out of joint.
  • 00:18:28.220 --> 00:18:30.020
  • My heart is like wax."
  • 00:18:30.020 --> 00:18:31.120
  • He talks about,
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:32.220
  • over in Psalm 22:16:
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:35.020
  • "The dogs
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:35.120
  • have surrounded me," --
  • 00:18:35.120 --> 00:18:36.140
  • in other words,
  • 00:18:36.140 --> 00:18:37.000
  • like wild dogs
  • 00:18:37.000 --> 00:18:38.000
  • ripping your body to pieces.
  • 00:18:38.000 --> 00:18:40.110
  • I went on a safari
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.090
  • in South Africa one time,
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:42.110
  • and I saw a pack of wild dogs
  • 00:18:42.110 --> 00:18:44.110
  • catch a gazelle.
  • 00:18:44.110 --> 00:18:46.070
  • And it was vicious,
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:47.190
  • and I thought of this scripture,
  • 00:18:47.190 --> 00:18:49.180
  • that the cat of nine tails,
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:51.020
  • the ripping of the flesh,
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:52.240
  • the ripping of the beard --
  • 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:54.040
  • - Terrible.
  • 00:18:54.040 --> 00:18:54.210
  • - -- the crucifixion.
  • 00:18:54.210 --> 00:18:55.220
  • Listen to the details:
  • 00:18:55.220 --> 00:18:57.100
  • "They pierced my hands
  • 00:18:57.100 --> 00:18:59.140
  • and my feet."
  • 00:18:59.140 --> 00:19:00.090
  • This is before Rome
  • 00:19:00.090 --> 00:19:01.190
  • had control of Israel.
  • 00:19:01.190 --> 00:19:03.290
  • The Roman way of death
  • 00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:05.160
  • and execution was the cross.
  • 00:19:05.160 --> 00:19:08.060
  • Nobody in Israel
  • 00:19:08.060 --> 00:19:09.100
  • had ever heard of a cross.
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:11.120
  • - Rome was not existing
  • 00:19:11.120 --> 00:19:12.060
  • at that time.
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:13.030
  • - Exactly, and he's
  • 00:19:13.030 --> 00:19:14.170
  • prophesying specifically,
  • 00:19:14.170 --> 00:19:15.290
  • "They pierced my hands
  • 00:19:15.290 --> 00:19:17.100
  • and my feet.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:18.090
  • I can count all my bones:
  • 00:19:18.090 --> 00:19:20.220
  • they look and stare at me."
  • 00:19:20.220 --> 00:19:22.270
  • And you read Matthew's account,
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.100
  • they walked by,
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:25.210
  • and laughed at Him, and said,
  • 00:19:25.210 --> 00:19:28.150
  • "If You're God,
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:30.030
  • then come down off
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:31.090
  • of that cross."
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:32.280
  • Listen, I wanna finish.
  • 00:19:32.280 --> 00:19:34.090
  • "They divide my garments
  • 00:19:34.090 --> 00:19:36.010
  • among them, and cast lots," --
  • 00:19:36.050 --> 00:19:39.050
  • they're gambling
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:40.020
  • for my clothes.
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:41.050
  • This was prophesied 1.500 years
  • 00:19:43.000 --> 00:19:46.000
  • before it happened
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:46.190
  • on that hill behind me.
  • 00:19:46.190 --> 00:19:48.140
  • The Christ that we preach,
  • 00:19:48.160 --> 00:19:51.160
  • the Yeshua that we preach,
  • 00:19:51.160 --> 00:19:53.090
  • is the God of the Old Testament.
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:57.160
  • Jesus was God in skin.
  • 00:19:57.160 --> 00:19:59.260
  • 100% flesh, 100% God,
  • 00:20:01.130 --> 00:20:04.130
  • dying and taking away --
  • 00:20:04.130 --> 00:20:05.290
  • I love what you said
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:06.200
  • about Isaiah 40.
  • 00:20:06.200 --> 00:20:08.030
  • He took double
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:10.000
  • my payment of sin.
  • 00:20:10.000 --> 00:20:11.290
  • He took double any and all sin
  • 00:20:12.070 --> 00:20:15.070
  • that I could ever commit,
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:16.230
  • and you could ever commit,
  • 00:20:16.230 --> 00:20:17.270
  • and He nailed it
  • 00:20:17.270 --> 00:20:18.240
  • to the cross.
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:20.130
  • And He said, "It's not
  • 00:20:20.130 --> 00:20:21.100
  • a religion of do-do-do.
  • 00:20:21.100 --> 00:20:23.260
  • It's done, done, done.
  • 00:20:23.260 --> 00:20:25.230
  • It is finished."
  • 00:20:25.240 --> 00:20:28.240
  • - Amen.
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:29.090
  • - I have secured
  • 00:20:29.090 --> 00:20:30.150
  • your salvation,
  • 00:20:30.150 --> 00:20:32.040
  • and eternal life.
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:33.100
  • You don't have to fear the death
  • 00:20:33.100 --> 00:20:35.270
  • and the grave and hell,
  • 00:20:35.270 --> 00:20:38.050
  • because Jesus said,
  • 00:20:38.050 --> 00:20:39.140
  • "I came to give you life,
  • 00:20:39.140 --> 00:20:41.280
  • and give it to you
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:42.190
  • more abundantly."
  • 00:20:42.190 --> 00:20:44.200
  • And John 3:16,
  • 00:20:44.200 --> 00:20:46.050
  • I gotta preach it.
  • 00:20:46.050 --> 00:20:47.060
  • - Yeah, go ahead.
  • 00:20:47.060 --> 00:20:47.250
  • - "For God so loved
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:49.280
  • the world that He gave
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:52.050
  • His only begotten Son,
  • 00:20:52.050 --> 00:20:54.030
  • that whosoever
  • 00:20:54.030 --> 00:20:56.000
  • would believe on Him," --
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:57.120
  • on that one
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:58.270
  • that hung on that cross,
  • 00:20:58.270 --> 00:21:00.150
  • and paid double price
  • 00:21:00.150 --> 00:21:02.080
  • for your sin,
  • 00:21:02.080 --> 00:21:04.280
  • my sin: "Whosoever would believe
  • 00:21:05.030 --> 00:21:08.030
  • on Him should not perish," --
  • 00:21:08.030 --> 00:21:10.020
  • it's not over when you die,
  • 00:21:10.020 --> 00:21:11.130
  • your faith
  • 00:21:11.130 --> 00:21:12.070
  • is in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:21:12.290 --> 00:21:15.290
  • But you could have
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:17.070
  • eternal life.
  • 00:21:17.070 --> 00:21:19.150
  • That's our message.
  • 00:21:19.150 --> 00:21:21.020
  • That's our comfort.
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:22.090
  • - That's the message.
  • 00:21:22.090 --> 00:21:23.200
  • That's the Good News.
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:24.280
  • Because it becomes
  • 00:21:24.280 --> 00:21:27.000
  • a good news the moment
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:28.080
  • it's not depending on you.
  • 00:21:28.080 --> 00:21:30.230
  • If it's depending on you,
  • 00:21:30.230 --> 00:21:32.150
  • it cannot be a good news.
  • 00:21:32.150 --> 00:21:34.090
  • Because let's be honest,
  • 00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:35.250
  • the Jewish people
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:37.200
  • never kept the whole law.
  • 00:21:37.200 --> 00:21:39.280
  • Let's be honest.
  • 00:21:39.280 --> 00:21:40.190
  • - It's impossible.
  • 00:21:40.190 --> 00:21:41.070
  • You can't.
  • 00:21:41.070 --> 00:21:42.080
  • - There was never
  • 00:21:42.080 --> 00:21:43.010
  • a real revival.
  • 00:21:43.010 --> 00:21:44.200
  • - You gotta get the law-giver,
  • 00:21:44.200 --> 00:21:46.290
  • not just the law --
  • 00:21:46.290 --> 00:21:48.070
  • not just the law,
  • 00:21:48.070 --> 00:21:48.290
  • you gotta get the law-liver.
  • 00:21:48.290 --> 00:21:51.170
  • The one who can live it
  • 00:21:51.170 --> 00:21:52.110
  • through you.
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:53.230
  • Jesus Christ,
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:54.200
  • into your life.
  • 00:21:54.200 --> 00:21:55.270
  • You can't change yourself.
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:57.220
  • But when He comes in,
  • 00:21:57.220 --> 00:21:58.220
  • He transforms.
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:22:00.100
  • The proof of salvation
  • 00:22:00.100 --> 00:22:01.260
  • is transformation.
  • 00:22:01.260 --> 00:22:03.150
  • - Amen.
  • 00:22:03.150 --> 00:22:04.030
  • - And Jesus said,
  • 00:22:04.030 --> 00:22:06.020
  • "The old things pass away," --
  • 00:22:06.020 --> 00:22:08.010
  • one more verse
  • 00:22:08.010 --> 00:22:09.090
  • that we can talk about,
  • 00:22:09.090 --> 00:22:10.120
  • Isaiah 53.
  • 00:22:10.220 --> 00:22:13.220
  • "But He was wounded
  • 00:22:13.220 --> 00:22:14.240
  • for our transgressions,
  • 00:22:14.240 --> 00:22:16.080
  • bruised for our iniquities:
  • 00:22:16.080 --> 00:22:17.150
  • the chastisement
  • 00:22:17.150 --> 00:22:18.050
  • of our peace was upon Him.
  • 00:22:18.050 --> 00:22:20.030
  • And by His stripes
  • 00:22:20.030 --> 00:22:20.260
  • you are healed."
  • 00:22:20.260 --> 00:22:23.070
  • You're a miracle, Samuel.
  • 00:22:23.070 --> 00:22:25.110
  • You were given a bad report,
  • 00:22:25.130 --> 00:22:28.130
  • and tell us what the Lord's
  • 00:22:28.130 --> 00:22:29.180
  • done for you
  • 00:22:29.180 --> 00:22:30.070
  • in the closing moments.
  • 00:22:30.070 --> 00:22:32.040
  • - Seven months ago,
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:35.060
  • they discovered that I had
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:35.280
  • bladder cancer
  • 00:22:35.280 --> 00:22:36.290
  • that went into my prostate,
  • 00:22:36.290 --> 00:22:39.050
  • and I was fighting cancer
  • 00:22:39.050 --> 00:22:41.240
  • for the last six months.
  • 00:22:41.240 --> 00:22:44.070
  • They told me that the chances
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:46.220
  • that the treatment will work
  • 00:22:46.220 --> 00:22:47.160
  • would be only 20%.
  • 00:22:47.160 --> 00:22:49.220
  • And people were praying for me,
  • 00:22:49.220 --> 00:22:51.190
  • and it's an opportunity
  • 00:22:51.190 --> 00:22:52.170
  • to thank all those who know me,
  • 00:22:52.170 --> 00:22:54.130
  • and prayed for me all over.
  • 00:22:54.130 --> 00:22:56.230
  • And three weeks ago,
  • 00:22:56.230 --> 00:22:57.290
  • I received a good report,
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:22:59.230
  • that the cancer
  • 00:22:59.230 --> 00:23:01.000
  • was gone, so.
  • 00:23:01.000 --> 00:23:02.100
  • - My goodness.
  • 00:23:02.100 --> 00:23:02.280
  • - I guess God
  • 00:23:02.280 --> 00:23:04.100
  • has still things to --
  • 00:23:04.100 --> 00:23:06.070
  • I have still things to do
  • 00:23:06.070 --> 00:23:07.040
  • on this part of the eternity.
  • 00:23:07.040 --> 00:23:09.130
  • - I believe that,
  • 00:23:09.130 --> 00:23:10.140
  • and I believe that what you do
  • 00:23:11.100 --> 00:23:14.100
  • in preaching the Gospel
  • 00:23:14.100 --> 00:23:17.050
  • and others that you represent,
  • 00:23:17.050 --> 00:23:18.270
  • pastors and evangelists,
  • 00:23:18.270 --> 00:23:20.150
  • right here in the nation
  • 00:23:20.150 --> 00:23:21.180
  • of Israel.
  • 00:23:21.180 --> 00:23:22.220
  • So many of us believe
  • 00:23:22.220 --> 00:23:24.000
  • in supporting
  • 00:23:24.000 --> 00:23:24.200
  • the nation of Israel,
  • 00:23:24.200 --> 00:23:25.260
  • we're involved in that,
  • 00:23:25.260 --> 00:23:27.080
  • we encourage
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:27.270
  • our political leaders
  • 00:23:27.270 --> 00:23:28.250
  • in every way
  • 00:23:28.250 --> 00:23:29.230
  • that we can to support Israel,
  • 00:23:29.230 --> 00:23:31.260
  • and that's critical,
  • 00:23:31.260 --> 00:23:32.230
  • and that's important,
  • 00:23:32.230 --> 00:23:33.210
  • and build and help
  • 00:23:33.210 --> 00:23:35.220
  • and restore this land.
  • 00:23:35.220 --> 00:23:38.030
  • But we need
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:39.040
  • to support ministries
  • 00:23:39.040 --> 00:23:40.150
  • that are preaching the truth,
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:45.120
  • showing line upon line,
  • 00:23:45.140 --> 00:23:48.140
  • precept upon precept,
  • 00:23:48.140 --> 00:23:49.220
  • Old Testament,
  • 00:23:49.220 --> 00:23:50.170
  • New Covenant, who Messiah is.
  • 00:23:51.220 --> 00:23:54.220
  • And that's one of the dreams
  • 00:23:54.220 --> 00:23:55.290
  • that we have,
  • 00:23:55.290 --> 00:23:56.270
  • and that's why
  • 00:23:56.270 --> 00:23:57.190
  • I so appreciate this man,
  • 00:23:57.190 --> 00:23:59.150
  • and that's why
  • 00:23:59.150 --> 00:23:59.290
  • we have committed
  • 00:23:59.290 --> 00:24:01.110
  • to continually helping him

  • the Word of God
  • 00:24:09.110 --> 00:24:11.040
  • has to be proclaimed.

  • "Comfort ye,
  • 00:24:12.190 --> 00:24:13.140
  • comfort ye My people,"
  • 00:24:13.140 --> 00:24:14.280
  • and I love
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:15.270
  • how you summed it up,
  • 00:24:15.270 --> 00:24:17.030
  • that that is the greatest
  • 00:24:17.030 --> 00:24:19.090
  • message of comfort,
  • 00:24:19.090 --> 00:24:20.280
  • that I don't have to fear death,
  • 00:24:20.280 --> 00:24:22.090
