  • But we're not--notimeline, and I appreciate
  • 00:00:57.206 --> 00:00:58.841
  • that, you kind of can't.
  • 00:00:58.874 --> 00:01:00.175
  • Jeffrey: A little differentapproach to Revelation.
  • 00:01:00.209 --> 00:01:02.077
  • Kirsten: Right,it's good, good news.
  • 00:01:02.111 --> 00:01:03.745
  • David: Take your Bible rightnow and let's turn to chapter 20
  • 00:01:03.779 --> 00:01:06.648
  • as Dr. Seifteaches on Revelation.
  • 00:01:06.682 --> 00:01:08.851
  • Jeffrey: When I lookat Revelation chapter 20,
  • 00:01:14.223 --> 00:01:16.525
  • I alight upon something thatothers might not because therein
  • 00:01:16.558 --> 00:01:20.395
  • I see a malefactor, someonewho's guilty of something being
  • 00:01:20.429 --> 00:01:24.233
  • taken into custodyand then imprisoned.
  • 00:01:24.266 --> 00:01:27.436
  • But I look at it like acop, not just as a theologian.
  • 00:01:27.469 --> 00:01:31.773
  • I say that because inRevelation chapter 20,
  • 00:01:31.807 --> 00:01:33.942
  • finally the devil isseized, this dragon,
  • 00:01:33.976 --> 00:01:37.079
  • this beast, this serpent, Satanand the devil is identified.
  • 00:01:37.112 --> 00:01:41.016
  • And then he's taken in verse3 and thrown into the abyss.
  • 00:01:41.049 --> 00:01:46.088
  • I mentioned that, and rightlyso, today we live in a world,
  • 00:01:46.121 --> 00:01:48.423
  • we're looking for a kinderand gentler police force.
  • 00:01:48.457 --> 00:01:51.293
  • I don't just seize people andthrow them because I've never
  • 00:01:51.326 --> 00:01:56.765
  • arrested anybody who was guilty.
  • 00:01:56.798 --> 00:01:58.734
  • The reason why I say that isbecause they're innocent until
  • 00:01:58.767 --> 00:02:01.103
  • proven guilty, I justhave probable
  • 00:02:01.136 --> 00:02:02.704
  • cause to make an arrest.
  • 00:02:02.738 --> 00:02:04.039
  • I tend to be restrained.
  • 00:02:04.072 --> 00:02:06.108
  • And I've always imposedthat on others that I
  • 00:02:06.141 --> 00:02:08.810
  • trained as a police officer.
  • 00:02:08.844 --> 00:02:11.246
  • That's not the case here.
  • 00:02:11.280 --> 00:02:12.981
  • And why is that?
  • 00:02:13.015 --> 00:02:14.650
  • There's a lot of tension inthe room because God is finally
  • 00:02:14.683 --> 00:02:17.386
  • getting his planet back.
  • 00:02:17.419 --> 00:02:19.721
  • And here we are at the endof Revelation, harking
  • 00:02:19.755 --> 00:02:23.458
  • back to a story that beginsat the beginning
  • 00:02:23.492 --> 00:02:25.727
  • of biblical revelation.
  • 00:02:25.761 --> 00:02:27.663
  • There's, hey lady,this hissing creature,
  • 00:02:27.696 --> 00:02:30.799
  • this serpent whoseems to get away with it.
  • 00:02:30.832 --> 00:02:33.902
  • The race is defiledaccording to the literature.
  • 00:02:33.936 --> 00:02:36.738
  • And from Genesis to Revelation,we just see a world gone bad.
  • 00:02:36.772 --> 00:02:40.876
  • God so loved the world that hesent his Son into the world.
  • 00:02:40.909 --> 00:02:43.912
  • And there are individuals, insome sense, called out of the
  • 00:02:43.946 --> 00:02:46.815
  • world to be acounterculture in this world,
  • 00:02:46.848 --> 00:02:50.285
  • to be an advancedcolony of new world to come.
  • 00:02:50.319 --> 00:02:53.088
  • But there's a sense inwhich even with Jesus's coming,
  • 00:02:53.121 --> 00:02:55.691
  • and people getting savedand participating in this new
  • 00:02:55.724 --> 00:02:58.026
  • community, still we have arotten world to contend with.
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:03:02.331
  • And so it has been.
  • 00:03:02.364 --> 00:03:03.832
  • But that rottennesscomes to a point in time.
  • 00:03:03.865 --> 00:03:06.835
  • Here is the point and now isthe time to give voice to it.
  • 00:03:06.868 --> 00:03:11.373
  • In chapter 20 again,this heinous personality,
  • 00:03:11.406 --> 00:03:15.310
  • Satan the devilidentified as such,
  • 00:03:15.344 --> 00:03:17.546
  • is taken and thrown intoa pit for 1.000 years.
  • 00:03:17.579 --> 00:03:20.782
  • It's notedexplicitly 1.000 years.
  • 00:03:20.816 --> 00:03:23.185
  • And this is where youget the--you know,
  • 00:03:23.218 --> 00:03:25.420
  • the language inChristian theology,
  • 00:03:25.454 --> 00:03:26.922
  • millennial.
  • 00:03:26.955 --> 00:03:28.290
  • Millennial justmeans 1.000 years.
  • 00:03:28.323 --> 00:03:30.359
  • Premillennial,post-millennial, amillennial.
  • 00:03:30.392 --> 00:03:33.128
  • The question is, what dowe do with 1.000 years?
  • 00:03:33.161 --> 00:03:36.031
  • Are we tethered to 1.000 yearsthe way we compute years?
  • 00:03:36.064 --> 00:03:41.169
  • Or do we want tojust subscribe to some,
  • 00:03:41.203 --> 00:03:43.872
  • you know,indefinite period of time?
  • 00:03:43.905 --> 00:03:47.042
  • It's hard to say indefinitebecause it is given
  • 00:03:47.075 --> 00:03:49.044
  • a kind of definiteperiodization.
  • 00:03:49.077 --> 00:03:51.613
  • I don't want to wadeinto those waters
  • 00:03:51.647 --> 00:03:53.649
  • just to mention that it's there.
  • 00:03:53.682 --> 00:03:56.318
  • If you look in verse 7, however,we're told that after this
  • 00:03:56.351 --> 00:03:59.688
  • period, Satan is released,subsequent to which then
  • 00:03:59.721 --> 00:04:05.327
  • he is finally destroyed.
  • 00:04:05.360 --> 00:04:07.229
  • And with that, this languageof the Ezekiel, it surfaces.
  • 00:04:07.262 --> 00:04:10.699
  • God, Magog, climactic kindof battle that's noted here
  • 00:04:10.732 --> 00:04:15.070
  • in the literature in Ezekiel.
  • 00:04:15.103 --> 00:04:16.738
  • After that battle in verse10, the devil is then--who has
  • 00:04:16.772 --> 00:04:20.409
  • deceived the world isfinally thrown into a pit.
  • 00:04:20.442 --> 00:04:23.578
  • And with that, we havethe ultimate triumph
  • 00:04:23.612 --> 00:04:26.615
  • of God in human history.
  • 00:04:26.648 --> 00:04:30.519
  • It's good news, but I'vegot better news still.
  • 00:04:30.552 --> 00:04:34.990
  • You say, "Jeffrey, whatcould be better than that?"
  • 00:04:35.023 --> 00:04:37.225
  • Well, better than thatis the fact that we
  • 00:04:37.259 --> 00:04:39.828
  • don't have to wait for that.
  • 00:04:39.861 --> 00:04:41.930
  • That is to say historymoves at its own trajectory.
  • 00:04:41.963 --> 00:04:45.867
  • And there is some point intime when the devil has his day,
  • 00:04:45.901 --> 00:04:50.439
  • and finally he's bested bythe Lord when he returns.
  • 00:04:50.472 --> 00:04:54.476
  • We considered thatpreviously in Revelation.
  • 00:04:54.509 --> 00:04:57.312
  • There is a point in timewhen God gets his
  • 00:04:57.346 --> 00:05:01.049
  • planet back in total.
  • 00:05:01.083 --> 00:05:03.618
  • But we can give himback some earth right now.
  • 00:05:03.652 --> 00:05:08.490
  • And I mention that becausethat's what the whole notion of
  • 00:05:08.523 --> 00:05:11.193
  • surrendering to the Lordis and being born anew.
  • 00:05:11.226 --> 00:05:14.563
  • The term "born anew"carries with it
  • 00:05:14.596 --> 00:05:16.732
  • a connotation of rejuvenation.
  • 00:05:16.765 --> 00:05:19.534
  • That is let's do thisagain, let's do it better,
  • 00:05:19.568 --> 00:05:22.003
  • let's do it with HolySpirit, let's do it God's way.
  • 00:05:22.037 --> 00:05:24.840
  • And that happens later on intime according to the Revelation
  • 00:05:24.873 --> 00:05:27.843
  • text, but you don'thave to wait to that time.
  • 00:05:27.876 --> 00:05:30.579
  • For you, the clock can startticking right now with a new
  • 00:05:30.612 --> 00:05:34.549
  • birth, with a regeneration,with being born again.
  • 00:05:34.583 --> 00:05:38.954
  • And you yourself canexperience a life without the
  • 00:05:38.987 --> 00:05:43.392
  • dragon, without the serpent.
  • 00:05:43.425 --> 00:05:45.026
  • You know, without Satan, withoutthe devil, without all of that.
  • 00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:48.497
  • To be sure, he can prowlaround like a roaring lion,
  • 00:05:48.530 --> 00:05:51.433
  • seeking someone to devour.
  • 00:05:51.466 --> 00:05:53.034
  • But to be sure,you're part of a new
  • 00:05:53.068 --> 00:05:54.703
  • sheepfold, a new community.
  • 00:05:54.736 --> 00:05:57.439
  • You know, God is in the businessof making things new not just at
  • 00:05:57.472 --> 00:06:00.709
  • the ragged edge of time,but he does it at a time when
  • 00:06:00.742 --> 00:06:03.879
  • individuals decide to make thetime, to be honest about their
  • 00:06:03.912 --> 00:06:07.716
  • sin, to not blame everyone andeverything on their
  • 00:06:07.749 --> 00:06:10.986
  • circumstance, to takea look how people are
  • 00:06:11.019 --> 00:06:13.688
  • responsible for their own life.
  • 00:06:13.722 --> 00:06:15.557
  • To then realize there's an offeron the table in the Bible where
  • 00:06:15.590 --> 00:06:18.760
  • individuals canexperience forgiveness
  • 00:06:18.794 --> 00:06:20.762
  • of sins, newness of life.
  • 00:06:20.796 --> 00:06:22.631
  • People can be born anew andtheir lives can be transformed.
  • 00:06:22.664 --> 00:06:27.102
  • Transformation speaks of aradical redoing internally.
  • 00:06:27.135 --> 00:06:31.640
  • And all that's available.
  • 00:06:31.673 --> 00:06:33.041
  • To be sure, there is going tobe a radical remanufacture of

  • circumstance onearth in days to come.
  • 00:06:38.947 --> 00:06:41.917

  • 00:07:24.826 --> 00:07:27.395

  • the older Jerusalem, thesymbol of it was a menorah.
  • 00:07:38.073 --> 00:07:41.009
  • In fact, when the temple wasdestroyed, the Romans had
  • 00:07:41.042 --> 00:07:45.413
  • known that the menorahitself was a symbol, the
  • 00:07:45.447 --> 00:07:48.984
  • candelabra was a symbol ofJewish religion and temple
  • 00:07:49.017 --> 00:07:52.521
  • worship, and they tookit away to Rome
  • 00:07:52.554 --> 00:07:54.789
  • and actually built an arch.
  • 00:07:54.823 --> 00:07:56.258

  • 00:07:56.291 --> 00:07:59.327
  • of depicting the triumph.
  • 00:07:59.361 --> 00:08:01.329
  • There's a new Jerusalem,but unlike the old one,
  • 00:08:01.363 --> 00:08:03.765
  • and we'll get to thislater, there's no temple in it.
  • 00:08:03.798 --> 00:08:06.501
  • But what do we have here?
  • 00:08:06.535 --> 00:08:08.136
  • He says, "Behold, thedwelling of God is among men,
  • 00:08:08.169 --> 00:08:12.507
  • and he shalltabernacle among them.
  • 00:08:12.541 --> 00:08:15.610

  • them and be their God."
  • 00:08:18.413 --> 00:08:21.349
  • The language, to my way ofthinking, harks back rather
  • 00:08:21.383 --> 00:08:24.319
  • clearly to Genesis, whenhumankind walked with God and
  • 00:08:24.352 --> 00:08:30.058

  • 00:08:30.091 --> 00:08:32.260

  • 00:08:51.680 --> 00:08:53.348
  • And here similarly now, Goddwelling among them and being in
  • 00:08:53.381 --> 00:08:56.785
  • relationship with humankind,that comes to the fore.
  • 00:08:56.818 --> 00:09:00.956
  • Speaking of four, notforefront, but the number four,
  • 00:09:00.989 --> 00:09:03.925
  • in verse 4 he says here that,"He will wipe away every tear
  • 00:09:03.959 --> 00:09:09.297
  • from their eyes, anddeath shall be no more."
  • 00:09:09.331 --> 00:09:15.604
  • Unfortunately, life comesreplete with many dangers,
  • 00:09:15.637 --> 00:09:20.175
  • toils, and snares.
  • 00:09:20.208 --> 00:09:22.177
  • And it ends at a grave.
  • 00:09:22.210 --> 00:09:25.013
  • And as people make their journeyfrom the womb to the tomb,
  • 00:09:25.046 --> 00:09:27.882
  • we all have ample time andoccasion to shed a tear.
  • 00:09:27.916 --> 00:09:32.053
  • We're not going tohave any more of that.
  • 00:09:32.087 --> 00:09:33.488
  • We're told thatmourning and crying and pain,
  • 00:09:33.521 --> 00:09:37.058
  • all of that isgoing to pass away.
  • 00:09:37.092 --> 00:09:40.629
  • There's a new day, there'ssomething of a restoration.
  • 00:09:40.662 --> 00:09:44.733
  • And as I am game to mentionas we approach the end of this
  • 00:09:44.766 --> 00:09:48.436
  • series, I like to underscorethat we don't have to wait.
  • 00:09:48.470 --> 00:09:53.208
  • That moment, we don't have towait to that day till we can
  • 00:09:53.241 --> 00:09:57.579
  • experience something ofthis way, that is to say that
  • 00:09:57.612 --> 00:10:00.548
  • God can wipe away tears fromeyes right now, that God
  • 00:10:00.582 --> 00:10:07.088
  • can become a friend to us ifwe become a friend to him.
  • 00:10:07.122 --> 00:10:13.628
  • Unfortunately, there'senmity between us and God.
  • 00:10:13.662 --> 00:10:17.032
  • Our sins make a separation,but that can be removed,
  • 00:10:17.065 --> 00:10:21.169
  • that can be fixed.
  • 00:10:21.202 --> 00:10:23.304
  • God is indeed in therestoration business.
  • 00:10:23.338 --> 00:10:25.640
  • I love it here, that'senvisioned as a point in time
  • 00:10:25.674 --> 00:10:29.511
  • when all ofhumankind is brought back.
  • 00:10:29.544 --> 00:10:31.980
  • Just like humankindwas lost in the garden,
  • 00:10:32.013 --> 00:10:34.582
  • now all ofhumankind is brought back.
  • 00:10:34.616 --> 00:10:36.651
  • But again, as I say, wedon't have to wait till then.
  • 00:10:36.685 --> 00:10:39.287
  • You have in verse 6, "Behold,I am the Alpha and the Omega,
  • 00:10:39.320 --> 00:10:43.558
  • the beginning and theend," again harking
  • 00:10:43.591 --> 00:10:45.460
  • back to the beginning.
  • 00:10:45.493 --> 00:10:47.662
  • We're told aswell as we move on,
  • 00:10:47.696 --> 00:10:49.698
  • we see this newJerusalem coming down.
  • 00:10:49.731 --> 00:10:52.067
  • And in verse 10,he's carried away,
  • 00:10:52.100 --> 00:10:54.302
  • the author is, in the Ruach, inthe Spirit, to a great mountain.
  • 00:10:54.335 --> 00:10:58.106
  • And he sees the holy cityJerusalem coming down out of
  • 00:10:58.139 --> 00:11:02.610
  • heaven from God,having the glory of God.
  • 00:11:02.644 --> 00:11:07.248
  • That the language hereis rather fascinating.
  • 00:11:07.282 --> 00:11:11.352
  • Again, we're in thecontext of a restoration,
  • 00:11:11.386 --> 00:11:14.322
  • with worship being restored,people being restored to a
  • 00:11:14.355 --> 00:11:19.761
  • relationship withGod finally and fully.
  • 00:11:19.794 --> 00:11:23.198
  • And there's a descriptionhere of the new Jerusalem.
  • 00:11:23.231 --> 00:11:26.968
  • There's a look at a regenerated,you know, landscape.
  • 00:11:27.001 --> 00:11:33.775
  • It's really worth having a look.
  • 00:11:33.808 --> 00:11:35.410
  • In fact, the author closessaying in verse 22 that in this
  • 00:11:35.443 --> 00:11:39.547
  • new world that dawns,there's no temple in her,
  • 00:11:39.581 --> 00:11:43.685
  • interestingly, forthe Lord is the temple.
  • 00:11:43.718 --> 00:11:50.325
  • And I'm going to explorethat in the very next segment.
  • 00:11:50.358 --> 00:11:53.027
  • We're told here thatwith the Lord's presence,
  • 00:11:53.061 --> 00:11:56.664
  • he is, in effect, going tolight it up and be the lamp.
  • 00:11:56.698 --> 00:12:00.735
  • The Lord is, the Lambof God is, the Messiah is.
  • 00:12:00.769 --> 00:12:03.705
  • "And nations shallwalk by its light,
  • 00:12:03.738 --> 00:12:06.241
  • and the kings willbring their glory into it."
  • 00:12:06.274 --> 00:12:10.445
  • I want to look at light alittle more as we bring
  • 00:12:10.945 --> 00:12:13.581
  • this series to a close.
  • 00:12:13.615 --> 00:12:15.416
  • Stay tuned, I'll do that in mynext and last teaching segment.

  • David: Right now, let's goto the last chapter of
  • 00:14:24.946 --> 00:14:26.514
  • Revelation with Dr. Seif.
  • 00:14:26.547 --> 00:14:29.083

  • 00:14:38.426 --> 00:14:42.697
  • a look in the future.
  • 00:14:42.730 --> 00:14:44.232
  • And when we're atthe end of Revelation,
  • 00:14:44.265 --> 00:14:45.900
  • we're at the end of time, goingback in time back to the past.
  • 00:14:45.934 --> 00:14:48.970
  • We're kind of movingover eons of time,
  • 00:14:49.003 --> 00:14:51.039
  • it's rather interesting.
  • 00:14:51.072 --> 00:14:52.540
  • But we're out of time,this is the end of the
  • 00:14:52.573 --> 00:14:54.208
  • series with this program.
  • 00:14:54.242 --> 00:14:55.643
  • And in chapter 22, we're outof time because there's
  • 00:14:55.677 --> 00:14:58.613
  • this new world that's dawned.
  • 00:14:58.646 --> 00:15:00.581
  • We're told here after thedeath, after the carnage,
  • 00:15:00.615 --> 00:15:03.918
  • after the misery, the authorsees in verse 1 this river of
  • 00:15:03.952 --> 00:15:08.623
  • water of life,bright as crystal.
  • 00:15:08.656 --> 00:15:11.559
  • And you're going to see theimagery noted in the literature
  • 00:15:11.592 --> 00:15:14.095
  • is very edenic like.
  • 00:15:14.128 --> 00:15:15.863
  • That is, at the end, we'regoing back to the beginning.
  • 00:15:15.897 --> 00:15:18.733
  • What do we see?
  • 00:15:18.766 --> 00:15:20.068
  • Well, in Genesis, there wasthe rivers that came from Eden.
  • 00:15:20.101 --> 00:15:26.374
  • We know that in earlyGenesis, and here he sees that.
  • 00:15:26.407 --> 00:15:29.777
  • In verse 2, he seesthe tree of life.
  • 00:15:29.811 --> 00:15:33.948
  • Jewish peopleliken the candelabra,
  • 00:15:33.982 --> 00:15:36.985
  • the menorah, to a tree oflife inasmuch as there is
  • 00:15:37.018 --> 00:15:40.288
  • a trunk and there's branches.
  • 00:15:40.321 --> 00:15:42.724
  • The menorah itself is likenedto a tree that gives forth
  • 00:15:42.757 --> 00:15:47.929
  • light, radiance, if you will.
  • 00:15:47.962 --> 00:15:50.365
  • It's a symbol[speaking in Hebrew]
  • 00:15:50.398 --> 00:15:52.166
  • of the tree of life,and here, certainly, the tree of
  • 00:15:52.200 --> 00:15:55.269
  • life is notated in the gardenof Eden, various trees.
  • 00:15:55.303 --> 00:15:59.240
  • The knowledge of good andevil, the tree of life.
  • 00:15:59.273 --> 00:16:01.876
  • And here we seethe imagery again.
  • 00:16:01.909 --> 00:16:04.412
  • In verse 3, we're told thatthere's no longer a curse in
  • 00:16:04.445 --> 00:16:07.548
  • this new city; and again, we'reharking back to early Genesis.
  • 00:16:07.582 --> 00:16:11.285
  • "The throne of God and theLamb shall be in the city."
  • 00:16:11.319 --> 00:16:14.722
  • And we're told that hisservants shall serve him.
  • 00:16:14.756 --> 00:16:20.061
  • By the way, we don't haveto wait till then to serve,
  • 00:16:20.094 --> 00:16:22.397
  • you know, that wedo it willingly now.
  • 00:16:22.430 --> 00:16:25.967
  • We act as servants.
  • 00:16:26.000 --> 00:16:27.969
  • We serve the Lord by givinghim apportionment of our time,
  • 00:16:28.002 --> 00:16:30.772
  • our energy, ourmoney, our adoration.
  • 00:16:30.805 --> 00:16:34.075
  • We start that now becausewe start being restored now.
  • 00:16:34.108 --> 00:16:38.246
  • People say one of the benefitsof accepting the Lord is that we
  • 00:16:38.279 --> 00:16:41.282
  • can have life after we die.
  • 00:16:41.315 --> 00:16:42.683
  • That's true, but itstarts before we die.
  • 00:16:42.717 --> 00:16:45.386
  • That is to say, "Iam the way, the
  • 00:16:45.420 --> 00:16:47.055
  • truth, and the life," he said.
  • 00:16:47.088 --> 00:16:48.389
  • In other words, lifestarts now with the way.
  • 00:16:48.423 --> 00:16:51.893
  • And the curse is removed here.
  • 00:16:51.926 --> 00:16:53.895
  • The throne of God is there,the Lamb is there, we serve him.
  • 00:16:53.928 --> 00:16:57.065
  • "They shall see hisface, and his name
  • 00:16:57.098 --> 00:17:00.768
  • will be on their foreheads."
  • 00:17:00.802 --> 00:17:02.403
  • They'll see his face.
  • 00:17:02.437 --> 00:17:04.338
  • It's an interesting expression,it speaks of intimacy.
  • 00:17:04.372 --> 00:17:07.642
  • We're not looking ata veiled presence.
  • 00:17:07.675 --> 00:17:09.777
  • And there you have it.
  • 00:17:09.811 --> 00:17:11.112
  • You know, the word "revelation"
  • 00:17:11.145 --> 00:17:13.981
  • from apocalypsis harks to
  • 00:17:14.015 --> 00:17:16.350
  • unveiling, being able tosee it for what it really is.
  • 00:17:16.384 --> 00:17:21.456
  • And the author of Revelationlooks at a sin-soaked world,
  • 00:17:21.489 --> 00:17:26.327
  • and he wants to see itfor what it really is.
  • 00:17:26.360 --> 00:17:29.664
  • He sees the believersbeing oppressed in that world,
  • 00:17:29.697 --> 00:17:33.134
  • and he gives voice to theireventual triumph finally and
  • 00:17:33.167 --> 00:17:37.205
  • fully, and we'relooking at it now.
  • 00:17:37.238 --> 00:17:39.507
  • We're told in verse 5 nolonger is there darkness.
  • 00:17:39.540 --> 00:17:43.177
  • People will haveno need for lamps,
  • 00:17:43.211 --> 00:17:45.146
  • for menorahs, for sunlight, "Forthe Lord God will shine on them.
  • 00:17:45.179 --> 00:17:51.552
  • And they shall reignforever and ever with him."
  • 00:17:51.586 --> 00:17:55.723
  • It's a beautiful ending.
  • 00:17:55.756 --> 00:17:58.559
  • It's a glorious ending to aglorious story in so many
  • 00:17:58.593 --> 00:18:01.662
  • ways, but such is life.
  • 00:18:01.696 --> 00:18:04.465
  • With all that attended to,before we get out of Revelation,
  • 00:18:04.499 --> 00:18:07.568
  • we hear the Lord again, "I'mcoming soon, and my reward
  • 00:18:07.602 --> 00:18:12.540
  • is with me to pay back eachone according to his deeds."
  • 00:18:12.573 --> 00:18:17.145
  • In the meantime, you know, welive between Calvary on the one
  • 00:18:17.178 --> 00:18:24.152
  • hand, we live between hisfirst coming on the one hand,
  • 00:18:24.185 --> 00:18:27.155
  • and his secondcoming on the other.
  • 00:18:27.188 --> 00:18:29.557
  • And in between that time, wewant to serve the Lord and be
  • 00:18:29.590 --> 00:18:32.927
  • about the Father's business.
  • 00:18:32.960 --> 00:18:35.029
  • He says, "How fortunateare those," in verse 14,
  • 00:18:35.062 --> 00:18:37.665
  • "who've washed their robes,so they have the right
  • 00:18:37.698 --> 00:18:41.035
  • to eat of the tree of life."
  • 00:18:41.068 --> 00:18:44.705
  • There it is.
  • 00:18:44.739 --> 00:18:46.140
  • People think, well, youknow, Jesus died for
  • 00:18:46.174 --> 00:18:47.875
  • everybody, guess it's okay then.
  • 00:18:47.909 --> 00:18:49.544
  • Well, individuals need to securethe right to eat from the tree
  • 00:18:49.577 --> 00:18:55.750
  • of life, and thusto finish the verse,
  • 00:18:55.783 --> 00:18:58.619
  • "to enter through the gatesinto paradise," into the city.
  • 00:18:58.653 --> 00:19:04.125
  • And people secure the rights notby virtue of their own efforts.

  • that you can afford to pay.
  • 00:19:10.431 --> 00:19:12.066
  • But it's made availableto you for the asking,

  • for sincere asking.

  • Well, the moment youlift up your eyes,
  • 00:19:38.626 --> 00:19:40.828
  • the moment you lift up to God,that you ask him in your heart,
  • 00:19:40.861 --> 00:19:43.931

  • We love bringing youhis music every week.
  • 00:21:36.944 --> 00:21:39.313
  • We are at the end ofour series on Revelation,
  • 00:21:39.347 --> 00:21:41.816
  • it's been up and down.
  • 00:21:41.849 --> 00:21:43.250
  • Jeffrey: It's been up and down,but we're on an upper now.
  • 00:21:43.284 --> 00:21:45.186
  • I want to land on a verse,and we'll just see
  • 00:21:45.219 --> 00:21:47.455
  • where it goes, okay?
  • 00:21:47.488 --> 00:21:48.789
  • In chapter 22, verse 16, wherewe--Yeshua is on record at the
  • 00:21:48.823 --> 00:21:54.128
  • end saying, "I am the rootand the offspring of David,
  • 00:21:54.161 --> 00:21:58.766
  • the bright morning star."
  • 00:21:58.799 --> 00:22:00.234
  • It's fascinating, the newertestament closes connecting
  • 00:22:00.267 --> 00:22:04.405
  • Jesus to the Jewish storyand a primary personality
  • 00:22:04.438 --> 00:22:09.477
  • in the older testament.
  • 00:22:09.510 --> 00:22:11.112
  • I like that reminder.
  • 00:22:11.145 --> 00:22:12.713
  • I think it's been so forgottenthrough time and circumstance.
  • 00:22:12.747 --> 00:22:16.617
  • People have lost sightof the Jewish origins
  • 00:22:16.650 --> 00:22:18.953
  • of the Jesus story, correct?
  • 00:22:18.986 --> 00:22:20.721
  • Kirsten: I agree, andthat's why we're here.
  • 00:22:20.755 --> 00:22:23.190
  • That's why we keepdoing what we're doing,
  • 00:22:23.224 --> 00:22:25.526
  • because that's how it ends.
  • 00:22:25.559 --> 00:22:27.795
  • It connects the dots and itcloses the whole chapter.
  • 00:22:27.828 --> 00:22:31.565
  • And it closes it with, "I wasa Jewish Messiah and Savior.
  • 00:22:31.599 --> 00:22:36.771
  • And I came for the whole world,but this is who I was and is."
  • 00:22:36.804 --> 00:22:40.808
  • Jeffrey: That's why I'mhere, that's why we're here,
  • 00:22:40.841 --> 00:22:43.511
  • and that's why you're there.
  • 00:22:43.544 --> 00:22:44.845
  • You wouldn't tune intothis if you didn't care.
  • 00:22:44.879 --> 00:22:48.649
  • And we really appreciate thefact there's a lot of people
  • 00:22:48.682 --> 00:22:51.585
  • that have come to know theLord and have developed an
  • 00:22:51.619 --> 00:22:54.388
  • appreciation for theJewish roots of the Yeshua,
  • 00:22:54.422 --> 00:22:57.725
  • of the Jesus story.
  • 00:22:57.758 --> 00:22:59.160
  • Dave, what about those thathave not come to know the Lord?
  • 00:22:59.193 --> 00:23:01.862
  • You know, we're at theend of the book, and we
  • 00:23:01.896 --> 00:23:03.764
  • don't want people to pivotaway and say, "Great series."
  • 00:23:03.798 --> 00:23:06.233
  • We want them topivot away and
  • 00:23:06.267 --> 00:23:07.601
  • say, "Great Savior," correct?
  • 00:23:07.635 --> 00:23:08.936
  • David: Right, our goal inthis series is not to scare
  • 00:23:08.969 --> 00:23:10.871
  • people, but to let themknow that there is a goal,
  • 00:23:10.905 --> 00:23:15.543
  • there's a prize thatwe all are looking at.
  • 00:23:15.576 --> 00:23:18.512
  • Jeffrey: How can theyget to the finish line?
  • 00:23:18.546 --> 00:23:20.481
  • David: I want--when Ipass through those gates,
  • 00:23:20.514 --> 00:23:24.018
  • I want him to say, "Well done,thou good and faithful servant."
  • 00:23:24.051 --> 00:23:26.954
  • That's my reason for living.
  • 00:23:26.987 --> 00:23:29.256
  • And our reason for this programis that if there's someone here
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:34.128
  • watching today that maybe hasn'treceived Yeshua in their heart,
  • 00:23:34.161 --> 00:23:38.165
  • in their life, thattoday would be that day.
  • 00:23:38.199 --> 00:23:39.767
  • Most of you watchinghave already done that.
  • 00:23:39.800 --> 00:23:42.236
  • And if there's one person heretoday that hasn't--I love John
  • 00:23:42.269 --> 00:23:45.906
  • 3:16, "For God so loved thisworld that he gave his only
  • 00:23:45.940 --> 00:23:49.743
  • begotten Son, Yeshua, that wemight have life everlasting."
  • 00:23:49.777 --> 00:23:54.548
  • That's our goal today for you.
  • 00:23:54.582 --> 00:23:57.017
  • Jeffrey: You know, Dave,you read the book Revelation,
  • 00:23:57.051 --> 00:23:59.353
  • and Kirsten, it talksabout the tribulation,
  • 00:23:59.386 --> 00:24:01.655
  • the great tribulation.
  • 00:24:01.689 --> 00:24:02.990
  • And someone might be sittingthere with a bottle in a hotel
  • 00:24:03.023 --> 00:24:06.227
  • room, saying, "Yeah,I'm in the middle of
  • 00:24:06.260 --> 00:24:07.561
  • my great tribulation now."
  • 00:24:07.595 --> 00:24:10.164
  • It really is true that successin life and a turnaround story
  • 00:24:10.197 --> 00:24:13.968
  • is just a prayer away, yes?
  • 00:24:14.001 --> 00:24:16.337
  • David: Even what we're goingthrough right now in a pandemic,
  • 00:24:16.370 --> 00:24:19.607
  • a lot of people may befeeling like there's no life
  • 00:24:19.640 --> 00:24:22.943
  • in them, like what's next?
  • 00:24:22.977 --> 00:24:26.213
  • Jeffrey: And I think, bythe way, mindful of heritage.
  • 00:24:26.247 --> 00:24:31.652
  • Jewish people areminded of history,
  • 00:24:31.685 --> 00:24:34.421
  • I think, more so than others.
  • 00:24:34.455 --> 00:24:35.823
  • And as a people group, we'vebeen through hell and high water
  • 00:24:35.856 --> 00:24:39.426
  • on a number of occasions.
  • 00:24:39.460 --> 00:24:40.961
  • And Jewish people say,"Am Yisrael chai,"
  • 00:24:40.995 --> 00:24:44.031
  • the people of Israel live.
  • 00:24:44.064 --> 00:24:46.800
  • You know, we'reonly making our trek.
  • 00:24:46.834 --> 00:24:48.936
  • We have a--you know,from the womb to the tomb.
  • 00:24:48.969 --> 00:24:50.838
  • As individuals, wemake our journeys,
  • 00:24:50.871 --> 00:24:52.840
  • and we go, "Oh mygoodness, pandemic,
  • 00:24:52.873 --> 00:24:55.342
  • unemployment,political consternation."
  • 00:24:55.376 --> 00:24:58.512
  • And we experience it for thefirst time, but God's been
  • 00:24:58.546 --> 00:25:01.982
  • around for a long timedelivering everyone who calls on
  • 00:25:02.016 --> 00:25:05.019
  • the name of the Lord throughthe passage of time, yes?
  • 00:25:05.052 --> 00:25:07.955
  • David: Something we'reexperiencing with friends who
  • 00:25:07.988 --> 00:25:10.491
  • live in Israel thatthere's a revival
  • 00:25:10.524 --> 00:25:12.459
  • going on there right now.
  • 00:25:12.493 --> 00:25:13.794
  • Have you experienced that there?
  • 00:25:13.827 --> 00:25:15.296
  • Jeffrey: Well, Ihave heard good words.
  • 00:25:15.329 --> 00:25:17.831
  • Certainly amongst Jewishpeople, there's been
  • 00:25:17.865 --> 00:25:19.633
  • this renewed interest.
  • 00:25:19.667 --> 00:25:21.368
  • And we still have tosee work done there,
  • 00:25:21.402 --> 00:25:25.072
  • but yes, it's all on the up.
  • 00:25:25.105 --> 00:25:27.007
  • David: On fire, yes.
  • 00:25:27.041 --> 00:25:28.509
  • Kirsten: One of the closingthings in Revelation is that
  • 00:25:28.542 --> 00:25:32.179
  • there's no moreneed for a temple.
  • 00:25:32.212 --> 00:25:34.114
  • There are no morechurches 'cause God is
  • 00:25:34.148 --> 00:25:36.050
  • there face to face with us.
  • 00:25:36.083 --> 00:25:38.919
  • And that's our prayer for you asyou watch this program and this
  • 00:25:38.953 --> 00:25:41.889
  • whole series, that you will cometo a place by asking him into
  • 00:25:41.922 --> 00:25:46.193
  • your life, into your heart,asking him to forgive your sins
  • 00:25:46.226 --> 00:25:49.930
  • so that you can walk faceto face with the Savior.
  • 00:25:49.964 --> 00:25:53.968
  • And in the end, hedoesn't want to be separate,
  • 00:25:54.001 --> 00:25:56.437
  • he wants to beright there with you.
  • 00:25:56.470 --> 00:25:57.938
  • That's what this wholeseries has been
