  • and I am so excited about this show today.
  • 00:00:33.040 --> 00:00:36.040
  • You're gonna be excited too.
  • 00:00:36.040 --> 00:00:37.230
  • I've got two phenomenal guests,
  • 00:00:37.230 --> 00:00:39.140
  • one of them I'm not going to introduce yet,
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:42.060
  • I'm going to bring her out later.
  • 00:00:42.060 --> 00:00:44.070
  • But what God is doing with her
  • 00:00:44.070 --> 00:00:46.010
  • it's actually historic in the body of Christ right now.
  • 00:00:46.010 --> 00:00:49.200
  • And I've got an expert here that even going to be able
  • 00:00:49.200 --> 00:00:52.020
  • to talk about why it's historic what she's doing
  • 00:00:52.020 --> 00:00:55.130
  • and what God is doing through her.
  • 00:00:55.130 --> 00:00:57.020
  • But first, I have one of my best friends here.
  • 00:00:57.020 --> 00:01:00.160
  • I love this guy, he's been to Gateway Church,
  • 00:01:00.160 --> 00:01:02.240
  • we've been to conferences together.
  • 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:04.090
  • You know him, you've read his books
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:07.050
  • Rabbi Jonathan Cahn is here with us today.
  • 00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:10.020
  • Let's welcome Rabbi Jonathan.
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:12.010
  • - Thank you.
  • 00:01:12.010 --> 00:01:12.260
  • - Good to have you, man.
  • 00:01:12.260 --> 00:01:14.080
  • Great to see you again.
  • 00:01:14.080 --> 00:01:15.030
  • - Always a blessing.
  • 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:16.070
  • - Oh, I'm so glad you're here.
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:17.280
  • Okay, so the first thing, when I came in today
  • 00:01:17.280 --> 00:01:22.270
  • we saw each other, hadn't seen each other for a few months.
  • 00:01:24.110 --> 00:01:26.050
  • But you, the first thing, this is what's phenomenal
  • 00:01:26.050 --> 00:01:29.240
  • I mean, all that God's doing but you did exactly
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:32.180
  • what a new daddy would do you told me
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:35.200
  • about a new blessing that you have, so tell us.
  • 00:01:35.200 --> 00:01:38.280
  • - Yeah, we have a new baby boy.
  • 00:01:38.280 --> 00:01:41.270
  • - A new baby boy. - My wife, Renata.
  • 00:01:41.270 --> 00:01:43.200
  • two weeks old - Here's a picture here.
  • 00:01:43.200 --> 00:01:45.150
  • - That's my wife Renata and his name is Mishael.
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:50.070
  • Those are my three boys right now.
  • 00:01:50.070 --> 00:01:51.260
  • That's Ehiel, Diel and the little one, Mishael.
  • 00:01:51.260 --> 00:01:55.070
  • I think you have one more picture.
  • 00:01:55.070 --> 00:01:56.200
  • And it means, it's from you know
  • 00:01:56.200 --> 00:01:58.240
  • in Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego,
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:00.170
  • Meshach's real name was Mishael, which means
  • 00:02:00.170 --> 00:02:03.050
  • who is what God is.
  • 00:02:03.050 --> 00:02:04.150
  • So we always have to have the el at the end.
  • 00:02:04.150 --> 00:02:06.180
  • So, yeah, there's no sleep so if I'm a little tipsy
  • 00:02:06.180 --> 00:02:10.270
  • and I'm not quite as prophetic (laughing)
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:12.170
  • then you'll understand why.
  • 00:02:12.170 --> 00:02:13.230
  • - Okay, so you went kind of quickly
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.250
  • through your other two sons, their names again?
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:18.050
  • - The oldest one is Eliel, which means God is my God.
  • 00:02:18.050 --> 00:02:21.250
  • - Okay.
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:22.230
  • - [Jon] And the middle one Dael,
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:24.070
  • he's looking in the back there,
  • 00:02:24.070 --> 00:02:25.090
  • it means the knowledge of God.
  • 00:02:25.090 --> 00:02:26.280
  • - [Robert] Wow!
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:28.140
  • - So one is nine, one is six and one is two weeks.
  • 00:02:28.140 --> 00:02:31.070
  • - So Mishael, would we get our word Michael?
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:33.270
  • - Michael is very familiar, very close to it.
  • 00:02:33.270 --> 00:02:36.240
  • Mikhael is Michael, which means who is like God,
  • 00:02:36.240 --> 00:02:39.210
  • Mishael is who is what God is.
  • 00:02:39.210 --> 00:02:41.190
  • Very similar but slightly different.
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:43.140
  • Not a lot of Mishaels.
  • 00:02:43.140 --> 00:02:44.220
  • We were trying to look for something
  • 00:02:44.220 --> 00:02:46.080
  • that's not the regular thing, but that's easy to pronounce.
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:48.180
  • But it's a blessing, you know, but this is it
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:51.080
  • we're finished, we're fine,
  • 00:02:51.080 --> 00:02:52.190
  • three is good, three is a good number.
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:54.060
  • - You're quiver is full.
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:02:55.160
  • - My quiver is quivering, I'm quivering.
  • 00:02:55.160 --> 00:02:56.110
  • (laughing)
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:02:58.180
  • - That's great, okay, so I remember
  • 00:02:59.220 --> 00:03:02.150
  • the first time that I ever heard of you
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.200
  • was because of the Harbinger.
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:07.000
  • I mean, that was a book that God put his hand on.
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:10.000
  • And it went all over the body of Christ,
  • 00:03:10.000 --> 00:03:13.050
  • around the world, and now you're obviously several books in.
  • 00:03:13.050 --> 00:03:17.150
  • You got a new book, The Book Of Mysteries.
  • 00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:19.190
  • Tell me, because you're writing, God's put a touch on you.
  • 00:03:19.190 --> 00:03:23.150
  • Tell me about the new book, tell me about any of the books
  • 00:03:23.150 --> 00:03:26.140
  • if you want to start at The Harbinger
  • 00:03:26.140 --> 00:03:27.280
  • and go through some of the books.
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:29.040
  • - Yeah, well The Harbinger was first,
  • 00:03:29.040 --> 00:03:30.020
  • then The Mystery of the Semitah,
  • 00:03:30.020 --> 00:03:31.050
  • then The Book of Mysteries, which now TBN
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:33.110
  • there's a program on that too, that's still going out.
  • 00:03:33.110 --> 00:03:36.260
  • - [Robert] So you're on TBN right here.
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:38.000
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:38.260
  • - 4:30 Eastern.
  • 00:03:38.260 --> 00:03:40.020
  • - A few different times, yeah. - Alright.
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:42.050
  • - They're actually changing, but they did a great job.
  • 00:03:42.050 --> 00:03:43.200
  • So, that's the mysteries of God.
  • 00:03:43.200 --> 00:03:45.150
  • I mean, there's so many mysteries, there's no end to it.
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.100
  • So, The Book Of Mysteries and I believe we'll touch on it
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:50.070
  • 'cause it's the linked to also
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:51.220
  • the Jewish roots that are often missing, you know.
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:53.260
  • The Paradigm is the last one,
  • 00:03:53.260 --> 00:03:55.190
  • that's kind of like The Harbinger.
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:56.260
  • You know, Harbinger is the signs
  • 00:03:56.260 --> 00:03:58.220
  • that were given in the fall of Israel,
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:01.080
  • and that we are watching in America
  • 00:04:01.080 --> 00:04:03.010
  • the sign, warnings, it's amazing.
  • 00:04:03.010 --> 00:04:05.150
  • The Paradigm is that the events that are happening
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:07.240
  • are also were we're replaying this thing that happened
  • 00:04:07.240 --> 00:04:10.110
  • at the fall of Israel, even that our leaders
  • 00:04:10.110 --> 00:04:14.040
  • actually behind every leader there's
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:16.060
  • an ancient prototype and they're following it.
  • 00:04:16.060 --> 00:04:18.020
  • It even gives how long they're gonna have
  • 00:04:18.020 --> 00:04:20.030
  • on the national stage I mean each one, crazy.
  • 00:04:20.030 --> 00:04:23.000
  • But the thing is, and then the last one there
  • 00:04:23.000 --> 00:04:24.290
  • with the leader is Jehu, God raises up a man
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:28.100
  • who kind of wild, he's not a Politian,
  • 00:04:28.100 --> 00:04:31.140
  • he comes out of the blue, people kind of think he's crazy,
  • 00:04:31.140 --> 00:04:34.280
  • and yet he is used by God to open a window,
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:38.090
  • to keep a window of time, you know
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:40.070
  • there's a fall going on, but he ends up being
  • 00:04:40.070 --> 00:04:42.270
  • this unlikely man who keeps a window,
  • 00:04:42.270 --> 00:04:45.010
  • we're in this window right now.
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:46.080
  • Right now where we are in America
  • 00:04:46.080 --> 00:04:47.220
  • we are in a window of time, and it's not about Donald Trump.
  • 00:04:47.220 --> 00:04:51.120
  • It's not about agreeing or not,
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:52.190
  • it's simply that, that's where we are.
  • 00:04:52.190 --> 00:04:54.140
  • And we have religious freedom,
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:55.270
  • but things are going fast, things are happening very fast.
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:58.140
  • And the point of the window is that we have revival.
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:05:02.010
  • If we don't have revival, America goes.
  • 00:05:02.010 --> 00:05:05.060
  • And so that's where we are, and right now
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:06.210
  • we haven't seen it yet, as far as what we need to see.
  • 00:05:06.210 --> 00:05:08.280
  • And we're kind of watching kind of the dark getting worse.
  • 00:05:08.280 --> 00:05:11.080
  • We're watching laws pass we could
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:12.220
  • have never had imagined before.
  • 00:05:12.220 --> 00:05:14.060
  • I mean, it's not about tolerating what is wrong,
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:16.230
  • it's about stamping out what is right,
  • 00:05:16.230 --> 00:05:18.040
  • that were we are right now, you know.
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:19.230
  • I won't go into details
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:21.000
  • but New York what they just did there,
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:22.060
  • and lit up the World Trade Center,
  • 00:05:22.060 --> 00:05:24.170
  • you know, celebrating it.
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:26.020
  • The World Trade Center is one of the nine Harbingers.
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:28.000
  • Another sign, 'cause I know, we're not
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:31.020
  • gonna get so prophetic right now,
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:32.180
  • but another sign that these Harbingers have not stopped
  • 00:05:32.180 --> 00:05:34.160
  • and that is there's a sign called the Arch of Baal.
  • 00:05:34.160 --> 00:05:37.060
  • There's a sign of Baal, it has appeared in America now.
  • 00:05:37.060 --> 00:05:41.040
  • It's appeared in New York City
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:42.110
  • when they had the Kavanaugh hearings.
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:44.230
  • A lot of the focus was life and abortion,
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:47.110
  • well it appeared in Washington right on the Mall
  • 00:05:47.110 --> 00:05:51.240
  • in front of the Capitol Building
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:52.230
  • just when they had the hearings.
  • 00:05:52.230 --> 00:05:54.020
  • That's a sign of a nation that has
  • 00:05:54.020 --> 00:05:55.290
  • known God but has been turning away.
  • 00:05:55.290 --> 00:05:57.150
  • So we have to pray for revival, it's the only way.
  • 00:05:57.150 --> 00:05:59.290
  • - [Robert] So what specially is the Arch of Baal?
  • 00:05:59.290 --> 00:06:01.180
  • - The Arch of Baal is the actually recreation
  • 00:06:01.180 --> 00:06:03.090
  • of the arch from the Middle East
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:05.050
  • which they walked through to worship Baal.
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:08.000
  • And the election, the presidential election,
  • 00:06:08.000 --> 00:06:11.010
  • Trump and Hilary Clinton, in New York City
  • 00:06:11.010 --> 00:06:14.000
  • it appeared as it headed to it's climax.
  • 00:06:14.000 --> 00:06:16.190
  • Then when the Kavanaugh hearing happened,
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:18.290
  • it appeared on the Washington Mall,
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:21.010
  • I mean, the Arch of Baal.
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:22.120
  • Interesting thing, I'll just show you,
  • 00:06:22.120 --> 00:06:24.030
  • this isn't in the Paradigm,
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:25.060
  • just so a quick thing,
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:26.210
  • when Jehu rose up and he went to the Capitol city,
  • 00:06:26.210 --> 00:06:30.060
  • he basically destroyed the temple of Baal,
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:32.150
  • that was used to kill babies, basically, he destroyed it.
  • 00:06:32.150 --> 00:06:35.060
  • So now, Donald Trump is a Jehu to America,
  • 00:06:35.060 --> 00:06:38.150
  • and so as soon he begin his rise,
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.280
  • this is two months after he announce his candidacy,
  • 00:06:40.280 --> 00:06:45.000
  • there is one ancient temple of Baal
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:46.190
  • that still exists in the world, pretty much.
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:48.200
  • It's in the Middle East, two months after he did,
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:51.120
  • the temple of Baal collapsed, collapsed.
  • 00:06:51.120 --> 00:06:53.250
  • When Jehu arises, the temple of Baal collapses.
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:56.010
  • But there is a war going on here, you know,
  • 00:06:56.010 --> 00:06:58.050
  • about life in America, we're in the balance.
  • 00:06:58.050 --> 00:07:01.280
  • And if you turn away from God,
  • 00:07:01.280 --> 00:07:03.170
  • what happens when a nation turns away from God,
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:05.080
  • in some way they're gonna follow the spirit of Baal.
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:07.100
  • That is this, that is the life of babies,
  • 00:07:07.100 --> 00:07:10.080
  • it is also sexual immorality,
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:12.160
  • it is also materialism.
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:13.160
  • We're watching it all, you know.
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:15.030
  • So this is a crucial time and if we are living in those days
  • 00:07:15.030 --> 00:07:18.190
  • then we, as the people of God
  • 00:07:18.190 --> 00:07:20.070
  • have to rise up in the Spirit of Elijah,
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:22.180
  • This is the time for Elijahs. - Yeah, that good.
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:24.020
  • God is looking for Elijahs. - That's good.
  • 00:07:24.020 --> 00:07:25.090
  • (clapping)
  • 00:07:25.090 --> 00:07:26.070
  • - The dark is getting darker,
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:27.130
  • but the lights have to get brighter.
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:29.030
  • We could not be intimated, we cannot be in fear,
  • 00:07:29.030 --> 00:07:32.100
  • this is our moment, but are we gonna rise?
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:34.160
  • Are we gonna be that person, that were suppose to be.
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:36.130
  • Well listen, I want to go for greatness, I mean
  • 00:07:36.130 --> 00:07:38.150
  • God is greater, but we need to become
  • 00:07:38.150 --> 00:07:41.140
  • that people of God that God has called.
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:43.110
  • Put us in our mother's womb for this time,
  • 00:07:43.110 --> 00:07:45.190
  • and it's not that we should fear the end-times.
  • 00:07:45.190 --> 00:07:47.230
  • You know, if God didn't want us in the end-times,
  • 00:07:47.230 --> 00:07:49.230
  • he would've put us in the middle ages.
  • 00:07:49.230 --> 00:07:51.080
  • He chose for us to be here now for such a time as this,
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:54.210
  • we have to rise to the calling.
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:55.290
  • - Tell me the name of the latest book again.
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.150
  • - The Paradigm. - The Paradigm.
  • 00:07:57.150 --> 00:07:59.000
  • So I just want to encourage you if you're watching,
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:08:01.260
  • Jonathan Cahn, if you never read one of his books
  • 00:08:01.260 --> 00:08:04.060
  • or if you've read one before, you need to get it.
  • 00:08:04.060 --> 00:08:06.260
  • Because your books held me spellbound,
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:11.010
  • because there's an anointing on you to write books,
  • 00:08:11.010 --> 00:08:14.030
  • there's just an anointing.
  • 00:08:14.030 --> 00:08:15.090
  • And there's an anointing on you to see,
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:18.080
  • for me I hope I'm pronouncing this correctly as a gentile,
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:23.220
  • the sons of Issachar, but it says that they knew the times,
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:28.140
  • and they knew what Israel should do.
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:30.200
  • And Israel, obviously, there's the nation of Israel
  • 00:08:30.200 --> 00:08:34.070
  • and we're grafted in.
  • 00:08:34.070 --> 00:08:35.130
  • I don't believe in replacement theology,
  • 00:08:35.130 --> 00:08:36.280
  • but I do believe it could be a type of the church,
  • 00:08:36.280 --> 00:08:39.100
  • or a type of God's people. - That's right.
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:41.070
  • - So what the sons of Isaachar did
  • 00:08:41.070 --> 00:08:45.020
  • was they understood the times,
  • 00:08:45.020 --> 00:08:47.090
  • and they understood what the people of God
  • 00:08:47.090 --> 00:08:49.070
  • should do during those times. - That's right.
  • 00:08:49.070 --> 00:08:51.020
  • - And I think that, that anointing in on you.
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:53.040
  • I've not seen that anointing on any man
  • 00:08:53.040 --> 00:08:55.290
  • in our day as I've seen it on you.
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:58.280
  • I'm not comparing you to others,
  • 00:08:58.280 --> 00:09:01.080
  • I'm commending you. - By God's grace, thank you.
  • 00:09:01.080 --> 00:09:03.210
  • - So I would encourage that,
  • 00:09:03.210 --> 00:09:05.110
  • but I've got a question for you.
  • 00:09:05.110 --> 00:09:08.000
  • So you're Jewish, obviously, you're Jewish.
  • 00:09:08.000 --> 00:09:10.160
  • - I think, with this face I think so.
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:11.240
  • (laughing)
  • 00:09:11.240 --> 00:09:13.110
  • So you're Jewish. - Yes.
  • 00:09:13.110 --> 00:09:15.130
  • Yet you believe in Jesus,
  • 00:09:15.130 --> 00:09:17.230
  • is gentile, would be the Greek pronunciation,
  • 00:09:17.230 --> 00:09:20.100
  • But Yeshua. - Yes.
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:21.240
  • - Who was also Jewish. - Yes.
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:23.050
  • - And a lot Jewish people
  • 00:09:23.050 --> 00:09:24.120
  • didn't even know that he was Jewish.
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:25.070
  • - [Jon] That's right.
  • 00:09:25.070 --> 00:09:26.220
  • - So how does a good Jewish boy become a believer in Yeshua?
  • 00:09:26.220 --> 00:09:30.010
  • - Yeah, I don't know if I was a good Jewish boy, but yeah.
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:32.220
  • Yeah, first of all, I was raised in a Jewish home
  • 00:09:32.220 --> 00:09:36.090
  • went to synagogue, you know, was waiting for Bar Mitzvah.
  • 00:09:36.090 --> 00:09:39.180
  • My father escaped Hitler, you know, came away.
  • 00:09:39.180 --> 00:09:42.100
  • My parents were both scientists, you know,
  • 00:09:42.100 --> 00:09:44.020
  • wasn't very religious but enough
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:45.170
  • to celebrate all those things.
  • 00:09:45.170 --> 00:09:47.110
  • But when I was eight years old,
  • 00:09:47.110 --> 00:09:48.170
  • I was in the synogoge, and um,
  • 00:09:48.170 --> 00:09:50.050
  • I'm reading the God of the Bible
  • 00:09:50.050 --> 00:09:53.070
  • who moved and said, go and this and showed himself.
  • 00:09:53.070 --> 00:09:56.090
  • I looked in the synogue, I didn't see his presence there.
  • 00:09:56.090 --> 00:09:58.100
  • I didn't see the God of David or Isaiah.
  • 00:09:58.100 --> 00:10:00.140
  • And so I said, you know what, there's no God.
  • 00:10:00.140 --> 00:10:02.210
  • So I became an atheist.
  • 00:10:02.210 --> 00:10:04.000
  • I was eight years old, I became an atheist.
  • 00:10:04.000 --> 00:10:05.260
  • - At eight years. (laughing)
  • 00:10:05.260 --> 00:10:07.200
  • - At eight years old, and so that lasted,
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.210
  • but after a while, you know, I said wait a minute
  • 00:10:09.210 --> 00:10:11.200
  • atheism doesn't work, I started losing faith in atheism
  • 00:10:11.200 --> 00:10:14.220
  • because there's gotta be a reason,
  • 00:10:14.220 --> 00:10:16.110
  • there's gotta be something.
  • 00:10:16.110 --> 00:10:17.190
  • So I started seeking for what the truth is,
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:19.090
  • I started reading every book I could on everything.
  • 00:10:19.090 --> 00:10:21.140
  • From Nostradamus, you know,
  • 00:10:21.140 --> 00:10:23.170
  • religion, science, UFOs all those.
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:28.100
  • And one day, I'm at 12 years old, 13
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:31.000
  • I pick up a book I thought was a UFO book,
  • 00:10:31.000 --> 00:10:33.050
  • but it looked like it, what they made that book that year
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:36.190
  • looked like it and God fooled me because it was
  • 00:10:36.190 --> 00:10:39.110
  • The Late, Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey.
  • 00:10:39.110 --> 00:10:41.010
  • - Oh!
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:42.150
  • - God tricked me.
  • 00:10:42.150 --> 00:10:43.180
  • And so I said wow, wow!
  • 00:10:43.180 --> 00:10:44.220
  • You know, I'm reading about Jesus,
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:46.080
  • I said, I read about Jesus in the UFO book, he's everywhere.
  • 00:10:46.080 --> 00:10:48.240
  • So it's like God got me through the back door.
  • 00:10:48.240 --> 00:10:50.220
  • I'm saying, wow, I didn't know the Bible said
  • 00:10:50.220 --> 00:10:53.010
  • everything it said is coming true, Israel is back, all these
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:55.220
  • I had no idea of it.
  • 00:10:55.220 --> 00:10:57.070
  • So I'm telling my friends about it, I'm preaching.
  • 00:10:57.070 --> 00:10:58.260
  • Now I'm not a believer. (laughing)
  • 00:10:58.260 --> 00:11:00.180
  • I'm not saved, but I'm telling, now I'm in high school.
  • 00:11:00.180 --> 00:11:04.120
  • And we have speech class
  • 00:11:04.120 --> 00:11:06.180
  • and I'm preaching the gospel to them,
  • 00:11:06.180 --> 00:11:08.080
  • I'm preaching the end-times.
  • 00:11:08.080 --> 00:11:09.170
  • But I'm not following it.
  • 00:11:09.170 --> 00:11:11.170
  • I had a rock band, I did what teenagers do.
  • 00:11:11.170 --> 00:11:14.250
  • And I didn't want to live it because
  • 00:11:14.250 --> 00:11:17.000
  • I said, you know, what if I live it
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:18.260
  • I have to give up everything good.
  • 00:11:18.260 --> 00:11:20.120
  • I have to join a monastery and that's the end of my life.
  • 00:11:20.120 --> 00:11:23.070
  • So I made a deal with God, I said
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:25.140
  • God if you give me a long life,
  • 00:11:25.140 --> 00:11:26.270
  • I'll accept you when I'm on my death bed.
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:29.030
  • (laughing)
  • 00:11:29.030 --> 00:11:30.170
  • That was the thing, so you see it's Jewish to make deals
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:32.060
  • but God is better at it then we are, you know.
  • 00:11:32.060 --> 00:11:35.110
  • - Yeah, he's really good.
  • 00:11:35.110 --> 00:11:36.240
  • - He's really good.
  • 00:11:36.240 --> 00:11:38.100
  • So right after I said that, I almost got killed, twice.
  • 00:11:38.100 --> 00:11:40.250
  • And the first time was a car accident, it was a miracle.
  • 00:11:40.250 --> 00:11:42.180
  • Second time, I'm in a Ford Pinto, which use to blow up.
  • 00:11:42.180 --> 00:11:45.220
  • You touch them, they blew up.
  • 00:11:45.220 --> 00:11:47.070
  • And so, I'm heading to a train track, it's at night
  • 00:11:47.070 --> 00:11:51.020
  • the light's going on like the train, you know
  • 00:11:51.020 --> 00:11:53.010
  • but the cars are crossing, so maybe it's broken,
  • 00:11:53.010 --> 00:11:55.160
  • maybe they passed so let me check.
  • 00:11:55.160 --> 00:11:57.080
  • So I go up, I look and I see a light, it's the train.
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:12:00.030
  • But I don't realize there's no protection, it's on an angle
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:03.050
  • its a bumpy road, I didn't know where I was,
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:04.270
  • I was in the path of the train.
  • 00:12:04.270 --> 00:12:06.020
  • - Wow!
  • 00:12:06.020 --> 00:12:07.150
  • - So I'm waiting for that, but I say, you know,
  • 00:12:07.150 --> 00:12:09.000
  • maybe I'm too close, so let me just try to back up
  • 00:12:09.000 --> 00:12:10.120
  • but now there's headlights in the back of me,
  • 00:12:10.120 --> 00:12:11.270
  • I said, okay well, so I back up just about a foot.
  • 00:12:11.270 --> 00:12:13.040
  • But I thought I'm just being safe.
  • 00:12:13.040 --> 00:12:14.110
  • I'm still in the path of the train.
  • 00:12:14.110 --> 00:12:16.040
  • I'm waiting for the train to come.
  • 00:12:16.040 --> 00:12:17.110
  • The train comes, plows into the Ford Pinto.
  • 00:12:17.110 --> 00:12:21.040
  • The only thing I could do at that
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:22.100
  • moment was call out to God.
  • 00:12:22.100 --> 00:12:24.030
  • The car was destroyed, totally.
  • 00:12:24.030 --> 00:12:26.010
  • I didn't get a scratch.
  • 00:12:26.010 --> 00:12:29.110
  • - [Audience] Wow!
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:30.180
  • - I said, Lord can we renegotiate.
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:33.010
  • (laughing)
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:34.080
  • And so, here's the new deal.
  • 00:12:34.080 --> 00:12:36.210
  • I said, I'll accept you when I turn 20.
  • 00:12:36.210 --> 00:12:39.140
  • (laughing)
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:40.120
  • I wanted anything I could get.
  • 00:12:40.120 --> 00:12:42.020
  • - You wanted just a few more years.
  • 00:12:42.020 --> 00:12:43.150
  • - I said, just don't kill me until then, okay.
  • 00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:45.170
  • So on my 20th birthday, which was about 8 months away,
  • 00:12:45.170 --> 00:12:48.210
  • on my 20th birthday, I didn't know how to get saved.
  • 00:12:48.210 --> 00:12:51.010
  • I mean, I was listening to
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:52.060
  • Christian television, Christian radio.
  • 00:12:52.060 --> 00:12:53.210
  • I went up, I remember God met Moses on a mountain
  • 00:12:53.210 --> 00:12:55.220
  • and Elijah, so I found a mountain, went up to the top
  • 00:12:55.220 --> 00:12:58.010
  • of the mountain, kneeled down on the rock
  • 00:12:58.010 --> 00:13:00.060
  • and gave my life to the Lord.
  • 00:13:00.060 --> 00:13:01.190
  • That's how I came to the Lord, only 'cause of a train.
  • 00:13:01.190 --> 00:13:03.140
  • You know it says that, Jews demand science,
  • 00:13:03.140 --> 00:13:05.060
  • I needed a train, that's how stubborn I was.
  • 00:13:05.060 --> 00:13:07.140
  • But that why I got saved.
  • 00:13:07.140 --> 00:13:08.270
  • - That's incredible, that's incredible.
  • 00:13:08.270 --> 00:13:10.180
  • - I'm the least likely person, Robert.
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:11.250
  • I mean for anybody who knew me back then,
  • 00:13:11.250 --> 00:13:13.250
  • I'm the least likely person.
  • 00:13:13.250 --> 00:13:15.080
  • - That's incredible, that's absolutely incredible.
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:17.020
  • Okay so now, here you are author, the um,
  • 00:13:17.020 --> 00:13:22.020
  • I was trying to remember the name of the,
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:24.180
  • Hope of the World.
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:26.000
  • - Hope of the World is the outreach ministry.
  • 00:13:26.000 --> 00:13:27.130
  • - The out reach ministry, yeah.
  • 00:13:27.130 --> 00:13:28.240
  • - And then, Beth Israel.
  • 00:13:28.240 --> 00:13:30.130
  • - Beth Israel, is the congregation at the Jerusalem center.
  • 00:13:30.130 --> 00:13:32.280
  • And anybody, if you guys are ever out in Wayne, New Jersey
  • 00:13:32.280 --> 00:13:35.160
  • right outside New York City.
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:36.210
  • We're there Friday nights, Sunday mornings.
  • 00:13:36.210 --> 00:13:38.060
  • So it's Jew and Gentile, we were talking about it saying,
  • 00:13:38.060 --> 00:13:39.240
  • Jew and Gentile want a messiah, you know.
  • 00:13:39.240 --> 00:13:41.260
  • And we celebrate the holidays, but celebrate Jesus, Yeshua.
  • 00:13:41.260 --> 00:13:46.020
  • - So that's what I was gonna ask you about.
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:47.130
  • So it seems like no other time in history,
  • 00:13:47.130 --> 00:13:52.130
  • - [Jon] Yeah.
  • 00:13:53.130 --> 00:13:54.180
  • - Have Jews and Gentiles come together
  • 00:13:54.180 --> 00:13:56.170
  • - Yes.
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:57.120
  • - Like they are now.
  • 00:13:57.120 --> 00:13:58.250
  • Like you talk about living in biblical times.
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:00.180
  • - Yes.
  • 00:14:00.180 --> 00:14:01.250
  • - I mean in the last 20 years, 40 years
  • 00:14:01.250 --> 00:14:03.110
  • it's more than ever, what do you think about that?
  • 00:14:04.230 --> 00:14:07.160
  • - That's right, totally.
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:08.140
  • I mean we are seeing things that
  • 00:14:08.140 --> 00:14:11.060
  • generations of Christians prayed for.
  • 00:14:11.060 --> 00:14:13.230
  • It's all part, it's a prophetic thing, because
  • 00:14:13.230 --> 00:14:17.060
  • see for 2000, 2000 years ago,
  • 00:14:17.060 --> 00:14:18.270
  • if we were back in Bible times, those Bible times
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:21.130
  • It would have been together,
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:23.130
  • all the first believers were Jewish
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:25.060
  • and then it was Jew and Gentile, they called him Yeshua.
  • 00:14:25.060 --> 00:14:27.180
  • And the biggest controversy is
  • 00:14:27.180 --> 00:14:29.260
  • do you have to be circumcised to believe in Jesus.
  • 00:14:29.260 --> 00:14:31.070
  • And that's how Jewish it was, you know,
  • 00:14:31.070 --> 00:14:32.260
  • it's the opposite of the world.
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:34.180
  • I grew up saying, the one thing
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:35.180
  • you can't believe in is Jesus.
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:37.070
  • You can be into Yoga, you can be into atheasim,
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:41.020
  • you can be into anything you want,
  • 00:14:41.020 --> 00:14:42.090
  • but the one thing you can't believe in
  • 00:14:42.090 --> 00:14:43.210
  • - [Robert] As a Jewish person.
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:44.230
  • - As a Jewish person,
  • 00:14:44.230 --> 00:14:46.000
  • the one person you can't believe, yeah.
  • 00:14:46.000 --> 00:14:47.000
  • is this Rabbi, I mean it's crazy.
  • 00:14:47.000 --> 00:14:48.210
  • 'Cause if you do you won't be Jewish, and I'm saying,
  • 00:14:50.050 --> 00:14:51.120
  • wow, he must be very powerful!
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:52.240
  • If he can turn a Jewish person into a non Jew.
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:55.070
  • He must be the Messiah, just to be able to do that.
  • 00:14:55.070 --> 00:14:57.040
  • But it's the most Jewish thing in the world
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:15:00.090
  • I didn't realize this.
  • 00:15:00.090 --> 00:15:01.130
  • When I started opening up the Bible,
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:05.050
  • we had a only the Hebrew scriptures.
  • 00:15:05.050 --> 00:15:06.230
  • It says, Messiah is going to be born in Bethlehem,
  • 00:15:06.230 --> 00:15:09.100
  • I said, that's Catholic.
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:10.200
  • How did they get into our thing, Bethlehem?
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:12.270
  • He's gonna come on a donkey,
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:14.040
  • he's gonna die for our sins, Isaiah 53.
  • 00:15:14.040 --> 00:15:15.090
  • How did they get into our Bible.
  • 00:15:15.090 --> 00:15:17.010
  • And so I said, this is Jewish.
  • 00:15:17.010 --> 00:15:18.210
  • It's the most Jewish thing I did in my Life.
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.090
  • So the thing is that, 2000 years go it was all together,
  • 00:15:20.090 --> 00:15:23.170
  • but then it split, then it split
  • 00:15:23.170 --> 00:15:25.110
  • and that's the problem.
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:26.240
  • Most Jewish people didn't receive, even though
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:28.210
  • all the first believers were, they went this way.
  • 00:15:28.210 --> 00:15:31.060
  • But the church also lost, it wasn't just the Israelite loss.
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:34.050
  • The church lost its roots. The church lost its heritage.
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:38.130
  • It lost the destiny, it lost its identity.
  • 00:15:38.130 --> 00:15:40.280
  • Listen if you're born-again today,
  • 00:15:40.280 --> 00:15:43.280
  • I mean talking to everybody here today,
  • 00:15:43.280 --> 00:15:45.130
  • you are Jewish, you are spiritually Jewish.
  • 00:15:45.130 --> 00:15:49.050
  • That's not hype.
  • 00:15:49.050 --> 00:15:50.220
  • The Bible says, you are a citizen
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:52.250
  • of Israel more then you're anything else.
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:55.080
  • I mean, on the outside you may look one way,
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:56.270
  • but you are a child of Abraham,
  • 00:15:56.270 --> 00:15:59.090
  • it's the most Jewish thing in the world
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:01.040
  • This thing called Christianity,
  • 00:16:01.040 --> 00:16:02.130
  • it means the faith of Messiah,
  • 00:16:02.130 --> 00:16:03.270
  • that's what Christianity means.
  • 00:16:03.270 --> 00:16:05.040
  • So what's happening is, what was separated
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:07.140
  • is coming back together, you know.
  • 00:16:07.140 --> 00:16:09.200
  • And it started with the, you know,
  • 00:16:09.200 --> 00:16:10.270
  • the end times are days of return.
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:12.200
  • And so the Bible says, the Jewish
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:15.150
  • are going to return to Israel,
  • 00:16:15.150 --> 00:16:17.060
  • so they've returned to Israel, just like it says.
  • 00:16:17.060 --> 00:16:19.150
  • Says they're going to return to Jerusalem,
  • 00:16:19.150 --> 00:16:21.030
  • so they return to Jerusalem.
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:22.260
  • It says, they're going to return to him.
  • 00:16:22.260 --> 00:16:24.190
  • Jesus said, I'm not coming again, guys, until you
  • 00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:27.070
  • Jewish people, say (speaking foreign language)
  • 00:16:27.070 --> 00:16:30.160
  • blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:32.120
  • Well all that's happening.
  • 00:16:32.120 --> 00:16:33.270
  • So it's not just the physical return,
  • 00:16:33.270 --> 00:16:36.210
  • it's a spiritual return and if the Jewish people
  • 00:16:36.210 --> 00:16:39.150
  • are returning that means the church has to return.
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:42.250
  • That's why we are seeing things
  • 00:16:42.250 --> 00:16:44.120
  • that have not been seen for 2000 years.
  • 00:16:44.120 --> 00:16:46.070
  • The fact that is you can go to churches now
  • 00:16:46.070 --> 00:16:47.280
  • and you see the shofar is blowing.
  • 00:16:47.280 --> 00:16:49.190
  • What is that?
  • 00:16:49.190 --> 00:16:50.170
  • That hasn't happened before.
  • 00:16:50.170 --> 00:16:51.100
  • They call him Yeshua.
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:52.100
  • They have Passovers.
  • 00:16:52.100 --> 00:16:53.240
  • Never before has this since the book of Acts,
  • 00:16:53.240 --> 00:16:56.020
  • not only Jewish people coming,
  • 00:16:56.020 --> 00:16:57.150
  • but have Christians been so joined to Israel.
  • 00:16:57.150 --> 00:17:00.110
  • So loving Israel.
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:01.240
  • Gateway is a perfect example of it blessing Israel
  • 00:17:01.240 --> 00:17:04.200
  • and this has been an inspiration to many churches
  • 00:17:04.200 --> 00:17:07.240
  • to bless Israel and you've been blessed.
  • 00:17:07.240 --> 00:17:09.000
  • - [Robert] We even have a messianic service.
  • 00:17:09.000 --> 00:17:10.220
  • - Right.
  • 00:17:10.220 --> 00:17:12.000
  • - The first service we have every month
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:13.220
  • is a messianic Jewish service - Yeah.
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:15.130
  • - First service, It's the first service.
  • 00:17:15.130 --> 00:17:16.240
  • Because, one of the reasons, Romans 1:16
  • 00:17:16.240 --> 00:17:19.140
  • not ashamed of the Gospel, power of God to salvation,
  • 00:17:19.140 --> 00:17:22.230
  • everyone who believes, to the Jew first.
  • 00:17:22.230 --> 00:17:24.210
  • It's even our mission statement to the Jew first.
  • 00:17:24.210 --> 00:17:27.050
  • Okay, so I wanna bring out someone,
  • 00:17:27.050 --> 00:17:29.090
  • I want you to stay. - Sure.
  • 00:17:29.090 --> 00:17:30.160
  • - So, Jonathan is going to be here

  • put on their heart, this is, just to give
  • 00:19:38.070 --> 00:19:40.240

  • 00:19:47.130 --> 00:19:49.190
  • but I'm gonna let her tell you about it,
  • 00:19:49.190 --> 00:19:51.130
  • you're gonna be blown away.
  • 00:19:51.130 --> 00:19:52.180
  • Will you please welcome, Daniah Greenburg.
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:55.020
  • (clapping)
  • 00:19:55.020 --> 00:19:56.070
  • - Thank you.
  • 00:19:56.070 --> 00:19:57.060
  • I'm glad to be here, thank you.
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:19:59.130
  • - So, okay.
  • 00:19:59.130 --> 00:20:00.110
  • So I told them a little bit
  • 00:20:00.110 --> 00:20:01.090
  • about this Tree of Life version.
  • 00:20:01.090 --> 00:20:03.020
  • It's already become a best-seller
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:04.130
  • of a new version of the Bible,
  • 00:20:04.130 --> 00:20:05.260
  • which is amazing in-- - Yes.
  • 00:20:05.260 --> 00:20:07.030
  • - Just a few years.
  • 00:20:07.030 --> 00:20:08.180
  • And I'll tell the story about how I heard about it
  • 00:20:08.180 --> 00:20:10.050
  • and how Gateway Church got involved
  • 00:20:10.050 --> 00:20:11.240
  • in the King's University.
  • 00:20:11.240 --> 00:20:13.110
  • But you tell, how did this come about, what happened?
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:17.140
  • - I just wanted my kids to love
  • 00:20:17.140 --> 00:20:18.200
  • the Bible the way that I did.
  • 00:20:18.200 --> 00:20:20.050
  • I met the Lord in my college years,
  • 00:20:20.050 --> 00:20:23.130
  • believe it or not in a jail cell
  • 00:20:23.130 --> 00:20:25.100
  • is where I finally gave me life to God.
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:27.110
  • And I had a stolen Bible that I
  • 00:20:27.110 --> 00:20:30.060
  • first started to learn about the Lord with.
  • 00:20:30.060 --> 00:20:32.080
  • And it really did. And I read the words that said that
  • 00:20:32.080 --> 00:20:36.110
  • Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:39.020
  • And I felt like, if he can save people all those years
  • 00:20:39.020 --> 00:20:42.140
  • that he had a plan for my life.
  • 00:20:42.140 --> 00:20:44.020
  • So I came to faith in college.
  • 00:20:44.020 --> 00:20:45.230
  • But then I turned right around
  • 00:20:45.230 --> 00:20:47.090
  • and married a Jewish guy.
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:48.210
  • And this Jewish guy and I wanted to get married
  • 00:20:48.210 --> 00:20:51.070
  • and we found Jonathan Bernis,
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:53.060
  • a friend of ours, right, a mutual friend.
  • 00:20:53.060 --> 00:20:55.060
  • And, when we began to really look
  • 00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:58.270
  • at the Jewish roots of our faith,
  • 00:20:58.270 --> 00:21:00.080
  • and my husband as a Messianic Rabbi,
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:02.150
  • I began to learn about how to study the Bible.
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:06.100
  • But then when my child came home from school and said,
  • 00:21:06.100 --> 00:21:08.250
  • "Mom, why do the Jews hate Jesus?"
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:11.210
  • I said, I stopped in my tracks
  • 00:21:11.210 --> 00:21:14.080
  • and I was like, okay, we have a problem.
  • 00:21:14.080 --> 00:21:16.100
  • And what I realized is that what my children
  • 00:21:16.100 --> 00:21:18.130
  • were hearing, their Dad preached Messiah, Yeshua
  • 00:21:18.130 --> 00:21:22.090
  • like Messianic Rabbis do, right, on the pulpit
  • 00:21:22.090 --> 00:21:25.290
  • was not what he was reading on the page.
  • 00:21:25.290 --> 00:21:28.210
  • And children, if they read it on the page
  • 00:21:28.210 --> 00:21:31.000
  • they think it in their minds,
  • 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:32.090
  • so we were creating a disparity.
  • 00:21:32.090 --> 00:21:34.020
  • So I got my little tin cup out,
  • 00:21:34.020 --> 00:21:35.190
  • and I went to all my Messianic friends one by one
  • 00:21:35.190 --> 00:21:38.210
  • and said would you help us create a Bible for children.
  • 00:21:38.210 --> 00:21:41.160
  • And now 10 years later, there's a Messianic Jewish
  • 00:21:41.160 --> 00:21:44.050
  • translation of the Bible fusing Christians together.
  • 00:21:44.050 --> 00:21:46.120
  • - And that's the key thing.
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:47.180
  • I mean, you started out for children
  • 00:21:47.180 --> 00:21:49.090
  • but it was so for Jewish people to be able
  • 00:21:49.090 --> 00:21:53.190
  • to read the scriptures translated by Jewish people.
  • 00:21:53.190 --> 00:21:58.170
  • - That's right, Jewish believers in the messiah of Yeshua.
  • 00:21:58.170 --> 00:22:00.240
  • - Translated is the word,
  • 00:22:00.240 --> 00:22:02.000
  • because we believe the Bible is inherent,
  • 00:22:02.000 --> 00:22:03.240
  • the Bible is inspired. - That's right.
  • 00:22:03.240 --> 00:22:05.150
  • - And infallible, but what we mean by that
  • 00:22:05.150 --> 00:22:07.250
  • is the original language, the original versions
  • 00:22:07.250 --> 00:22:11.040
  • the original, was inspired that's why we
  • 00:22:11.040 --> 00:22:13.160
  • have different version. - That's right.
  • 00:22:13.160 --> 00:22:14.140
  • - I've had people say before,
  • 00:22:14.140 --> 00:22:16.050
  • "Well Pastor Robert, why do you
  • 00:22:16.050 --> 00:22:17.040
  • "read from different versions?"
  • 00:22:17.040 --> 00:22:18.140
  • Because they are translations, and so,
  • 00:22:18.140 --> 00:22:21.010
  • there was no translation. - There wasn't.
  • 00:22:21.010 --> 00:22:23.230
  • - By Jewish scholars, in other words,
  • 00:22:23.230 --> 00:22:26.040
  • Jesus was called Jesus because King James,
  • 00:22:26.040 --> 00:22:28.240
  • because the Greeks, that was his name.
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:31.110
  • Even James the disciple, which I named one of my sons James,
  • 00:22:31.110 --> 00:22:34.270
  • and then found out later that he was actually Jacob.
  • 00:22:34.270 --> 00:22:37.070
  • Right? - That's right.
  • 00:22:37.070 --> 00:22:38.290
  • - And it really disappointed my son that
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.120
  • his name wasn't really in the Bible.
  • 00:22:40.120 --> 00:22:41.210
  • King James just put his name,
  • 00:22:41.210 --> 00:22:42.270
  • wanted his own name in the Bible.
  • 00:22:42.270 --> 00:22:44.220
  • Okay so for your children reading the Bible,
  • 00:22:44.220 --> 00:22:48.070
  • they were reading about Mary, not Miriam.
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:51.010
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:22:51.010 --> 00:22:52.070
  • - They were reading about James, not Jacob.
  • 00:22:52.070 --> 00:22:53.140
  • And so this kind of what happened,
  • 00:22:53.140 --> 00:22:54.290
  • and you've got all these Jewish scholars together.
  • 00:22:54.290 --> 00:22:57.210
  • - 32 of them, believe it or not.
  • 00:22:57.210 --> 00:22:58.210
  • - 32. - Believe it or not.
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:22:59.290
  • - Jewish scholars to translate the scripture
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:02.230
  • From a Jewish standpoint. - That's right
  • 00:23:02.230 --> 00:23:04.030
  • - Yet, it is a translation of the
  • 00:23:04.030 --> 00:23:07.000
  • scripture from the original documents.
  • 00:23:07.000 --> 00:23:10.080
  • - From the Masoretic Text, yeah.
  • 00:23:10.080 --> 00:23:11.170
  • And the 27 deuterocanonical of the Greek.
  • 00:23:11.170 --> 00:23:13.240
  • And so when we went back and did this Bible,
  • 00:23:13.240 --> 00:23:16.290
  • so my dream was just, all I wanted to do was
  • 00:23:16.290 --> 00:23:20.000
  • let's just use Messiah Yeshua instead of the words
  • 00:23:20.000 --> 00:23:23.200
  • Jesus Christ, so that my kids could understand.
  • 00:23:23.200 --> 00:23:25.240
  • - [Robert] Sure.
  • 00:23:25.240 --> 00:23:27.000
  • - But than as we started the journey,
  • 00:23:27.000 --> 00:23:28.000
  • I found out that Christian bibles
  • 00:23:28.000 --> 00:23:29.170
  • have a different order to the books.
  • 00:23:29.170 --> 00:23:31.170
  • And the original Jewish order actually
  • 00:23:31.170 --> 00:23:33.190
  • ends in Chronicals not in Malachi.
  • 00:23:33.190 --> 00:23:36.270
  • And when I realized that when you end in Malachi,
  • 00:23:36.270 --> 00:23:41.270
  • it ends with the words, "or utter destruction."
  • 00:23:43.030 --> 00:23:46.020
  • Which is like a hard way to get Jewish people
  • 00:23:46.020 --> 00:23:48.120
  • to read the Bible just for the record.
  • 00:23:48.120 --> 00:23:50.060
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:23:50.060 --> 00:23:51.220
  • - But when you restore the Jewish order of the books
  • 00:23:51.220 --> 00:23:53.070
  • to the end of 2 Chronicles, the promise of God is amazing,
  • 00:23:53.070 --> 00:23:56.140
  • because, it's actually King Cyrus that welcomes the Jews,
  • 00:23:56.140 --> 00:24:00.130
  • to rebuild their temple
  • 00:24:00.130 --> 00:24:02.010
  • and to let them go up and worship God.
  • 00:24:02.010 --> 00:24:04.080
  • And that's the miracle of this translation.
  • 00:24:04.080 --> 00:24:06.240
  • This is the first time in 2000 years,
  • 00:24:06.240 --> 00:24:09.100
  • that Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua
  • 00:24:09.100 --> 00:24:11.220
  • got to the place of theological advancement
  • 00:24:11.220 --> 00:24:15.070
  • alongside their Christian brothers to create
  • 00:24:15.070 --> 00:24:17.130
  • a biblical text together, unified as one voice.
  • 00:24:17.130 --> 00:24:21.040
  • And that's really a miraculous answer
  • 00:24:21.040 --> 00:24:23.190
  • to the things that Jonathan
  • 00:24:23.190 --> 00:24:24.270
  • has been bringing up the whole show.
  • 00:24:24.270 --> 00:24:25.270
  • - Yeah, it's fantastic.
  • 00:24:25.270 --> 00:24:27.020
  • And the way I heard about it was,
  • 00:24:27.020 --> 00:24:28.180
  • I was serving on the board of the King's University.
  • 00:24:28.180 --> 00:24:31.270
  • University that Dr. Jack Hayford founded,
  • 00:24:31.270 --> 00:24:34.160
  • and I just spent a day with Pastor Jack
  • 00:24:34.160 --> 00:24:37.060
  • just a few weeks ago.
  • 00:24:37.060 --> 00:24:38.200
  • And anyway, he heard about it,
  • 00:24:38.200 --> 00:24:40.200
  • and one of the things I think that
  • 00:24:40.200 --> 00:24:42.100
  • the way he heard about it was,
  • 00:24:42.100 --> 00:24:43.230
  • that you all were asking the King's University
  • 00:24:43.230 --> 00:24:46.030
  • to be like an endorsing University for the version.
  • 00:24:46.030 --> 00:24:50.050
  • - Right.
  • 00:24:50.050 --> 00:24:51.190
  • - But in the process, somewhere along the line,
  • 00:24:51.190 --> 00:24:54.000
  • it came that you still needed about $250.000
  • 00:24:54.000 --> 00:24:57.060
  • to complete the manuscript.
  • 00:24:57.060 --> 00:25:00.080
  • And so he felt strong, Pastor Jack
  • 00:25:00.080 --> 00:25:03.190
  • has just done this a long time.
  • 00:25:03.190 --> 00:25:05.020
  • I just wanna try to go to my friends now,
  • 00:25:05.020 --> 00:25:08.010
  • take my tin cup, like you did,
  • 00:25:08.010 --> 00:25:10.010
  • and see if we could do that.
  • 00:25:10.010 --> 00:25:11.080
  • So he came to the board, and he said,
  • 00:25:11.080 --> 00:25:12.230
  • I'd like for the King's University to do it,
  • 00:25:12.230 --> 00:25:14.090
  • but I don't want anyone here, you don't have to do it,
  • 00:25:14.090 --> 00:25:16.150
  • we don't have to do a money project.
  • 00:25:16.150 --> 00:25:18.080
  • I just feel like I could call some people.
  • 00:25:18.080 --> 00:25:20.140
  • Well when he said that, I thought, well we want to be a part
  • 00:25:20.140 --> 00:25:23.170
  • at Gateway Church - Praise God!
  • 00:25:23.170 --> 00:25:25.000
  • - So I went back to the elders and here's the elders,
  • 00:25:25.000 --> 00:25:27.110
  • were all Gentiles, but the elders,
  • 00:25:27.110 --> 00:25:29.130
  • well through faith. - Right.
  • 00:25:29.130 --> 00:25:31.130
  • - We've been grafted in. - Grafted in, Amen.
  • 00:25:31.130 --> 00:25:33.040
  • - We've been grafted in. - That's right.
  • 00:25:33.040 --> 00:25:34.040
  • - But by birth Gentile. - Right.
  • 00:25:34.040 --> 00:25:36.080
  • - By second birth, Jewish.
  • 00:25:36.080 --> 00:25:38.250
  • - [Daniah] Yes.
  • 00:25:38.250 --> 00:25:40.100
  • - So, but, our elders said, well, man, what a blessing
  • 00:25:40.100 --> 00:25:43.150
  • to be able to get involved, let's just do the whole thing.
  • 00:25:43.150 --> 00:25:45.200
  • And so-- - That was amazing.
  • 00:25:45.200 --> 00:25:46.240
  • - Gateway Church we just donated
  • 00:25:46.240 --> 00:25:48.190
  • the last quarter of a million dollars
  • 00:25:48.190 --> 00:25:50.140
  • that you needed to be able to get involved in this.
  • 00:25:50.140 --> 00:25:53.000
  • And I can remember when I got a copy,
  • 00:25:53.000 --> 00:25:55.020
  • and you gave it to me personally,
  • 00:25:55.020 --> 00:25:56.170
  • when I got a copy of it, I started reading
  • 00:25:56.170 --> 00:25:58.290
  • and I couldn't put it down.
  • 00:25:58.290 --> 00:26:00.120
  • It's like, I've read this before (laughs).
  • 00:26:00.120 --> 00:26:03.140
  • - Right.
  • 00:26:03.140 --> 00:26:04.160
  • - I recognize this. - Right.
  • 00:26:04.160 --> 00:26:05.230
  • - But I didn't think about it in that way.
  • 00:26:05.230 --> 00:26:08.200
  • - That's right. - So, it's phenomenal.
  • 00:26:08.200 --> 00:26:10.190
  • - It's a great way to say it - Phenomenal.
  • 00:26:10.190 --> 00:26:12.060
  • - It's a great way to say it.
  • 00:26:12.060 --> 00:26:13.220
  • When you guys invited, and Pastor Jack, invited me to
  • 00:26:13.220 --> 00:26:17.030
  • share with him my heart, it was because
  • 00:26:17.030 --> 00:26:19.180
  • I knew I had one of those Easter moments.
  • 00:26:19.180 --> 00:26:22.140
  • I can remember it like it was yesterday.
  • 00:26:22.140 --> 00:26:24.210
  • I had been asking the Lord, what do I do?
  • 00:26:24.210 --> 00:26:26.150
  • We've got the New Testament done,
  • 00:26:26.150 --> 00:26:28.150
  • but we had no money to do the Old Testament.
  • 00:26:28.150 --> 00:26:30.120
  • And by now, I've got the whole communities excited.
  • 00:26:30.120 --> 00:26:33.080
  • And every conference I went to,
  • 00:26:33.080 --> 00:26:34.220
  • "So Daniah, when are you going to finish the Bible?"
  • 00:26:34.220 --> 00:26:36.070
  • "So when's the Bible's gonna get done?"
  • 00:26:36.070 --> 00:26:37.190
  • And I'm smiling, there's like a lot left to do.
  • 00:26:37.190 --> 00:26:41.270
  • And I wasn't sure what to do, so I prayed about it
  • 00:26:41.270 --> 00:26:43.260
  • and I went to seek Rabbi Dan Juster,
  • 00:26:43.260 --> 00:26:45.250
  • a friend of yours, a friend of mine.
  • 00:26:45.250 --> 00:26:47.290
  • And I said, Rabbi Dan,
  • 00:26:47.290 --> 00:26:49.120
  • I said I believe I really need
  • 00:26:49.120 --> 00:26:51.160
  • to reach out and he said,
  • 00:26:51.160 --> 00:26:53.130
  • "Well you might want to talk to Pastor Jack."
  • 00:26:53.130 --> 00:26:56.010
  • And I'd never gotten to know Pastor Jack.
  • 00:26:56.010 --> 00:26:58.200
  • So when I went, so he got me an appointment
  • 00:26:58.200 --> 00:27:01.020
  • all he did was crack the door open,
  • 00:27:01.020 --> 00:27:02.290
  • get me an appointment.
  • 00:27:02.290 --> 00:27:04.050
  • I had a 15 minute slot with Pastor Jack.
  • 00:27:04.050 --> 00:27:07.230
  • I brought him the New Covenant.
  • 00:27:07.230 --> 00:27:09.170
  • I sat across from him at his desk,
  • 00:27:09.170 --> 00:27:11.270
  • at his desk in his office,
  • 00:27:11.270 --> 00:27:13.110
  • and he began to unpack for me
  • 00:27:13.110 --> 00:27:17.020
  • his love for the Jewish people,
  • 00:27:17.020 --> 00:27:18.120
  • and his walk with Israel.
  • 00:27:18.120 --> 00:27:20.110
  • For decades, of faith.
  • 00:27:20.110 --> 00:27:22.200
  • The stuff that Gateway has been brought up on,
  • 00:27:22.200 --> 00:27:25.260
  • is because of Pastor Jack's personal walk
  • 00:27:25.260 --> 00:27:28.160
  • with Jewish people in Israel that love God.
  • 00:27:28.160 --> 00:27:31.200
  • And as he began to share his heart with me about it,
  • 00:27:31.200 --> 00:27:34.090
  • I had a straight-up word from God,
  • 00:27:35.150 --> 00:27:37.020
  • I never delivered a word from God,
  • 00:27:37.020 --> 00:27:38.120
  • to somebody important like that before.
  • 00:27:38.120 --> 00:27:40.000
  • But he and I had, we sat for almost three hours
  • 00:27:40.000 --> 00:27:44.000
  • talking about the way that God love the Jewish people,
  • 00:27:44.000 --> 00:27:47.130
  • and how much they needed to know the message of Messiah.
  • 00:27:47.130 --> 00:27:50.010
  • And it ministered to my spirit in a way
  • 00:27:50.010 --> 00:27:52.120
  • I was, I had not ever, I never had.
  • 00:27:52.120 --> 00:27:56.030
  • He has such a heart for, for women of faith
  • 00:27:56.030 --> 00:28:00.030
  • believing God for miracles, and that's what
  • 00:28:00.030 --> 00:28:02.230
  • we have to be able to tell moms today.
  • 00:28:02.230 --> 00:28:04.060
  • The people watching today, is that,
  • 00:28:04.060 --> 00:28:05.210
  • we're believing God for a miracle in this country.
  • 00:28:05.210 --> 00:28:08.110
  • We need a miraculous return to the Bible,
  • 00:28:08.110 --> 00:28:11.060
  • - Yes.
  • 00:28:11.060 --> 00:28:12.070
  • - In our generation. - Yes.
  • 00:28:12.070 --> 00:28:13.220
  • - We need revival that starts in the hearts of the mothers
  • 00:28:13.220 --> 00:28:16.070
  • who are concerned about their children,
  • 00:28:16.070 --> 00:28:18.130
  • and that's the whole reason the Bible Society started.
  • 00:28:18.130 --> 00:28:21.050
  • But now a decade in, we have important messages
  • 00:28:21.050 --> 00:28:24.080
  • to tell our children that are getting,
  • 00:28:24.080 --> 00:28:25.160
  • that are getting drowned out by virtual reality.
  • 00:28:25.160 --> 00:28:29.110
  • When there's a real reality,
  • 00:28:29.110 --> 00:28:30.220
  • a real kingdom that's taking place.
  • 00:28:30.220 --> 00:28:32.290
  • - [Robert] Yeah.
  • 00:28:32.290 --> 00:28:34.150
  • - And we need to alert our children about that today.
  • 00:28:34.150 --> 00:28:36.060
  • And that's why this is such a miraculous product.
  • 00:28:36.060 --> 00:28:37.200
  • - And the Bible does it.
  • 00:28:37.200 --> 00:28:38.260
  • I started a series, - That's exactly right.
  • 00:28:38.260 --> 00:28:40.230
  • - Last spring called, More Than Words.
  • 00:28:40.230 --> 00:28:44.150
  • - [Daniah] Yes.
  • 00:28:44.150 --> 00:28:45.210
  • - And went into the Bible. - Yes.
  • 00:28:45.210 --> 00:28:46.260
  • - And how important the Bible is,
  • 00:28:46.260 --> 00:28:48.090
  • and I actually said, the next attack you're gonna see,
  • 00:28:48.090 --> 00:28:50.250
  • in our country, will be against the Bible.
  • 00:28:50.250 --> 00:28:53.070
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:28:53.070 --> 00:28:54.140
  • - And the reason is because we don't have
  • 00:28:54.140 --> 00:28:55.260
  • to discuss issues anymore.
  • 00:28:55.260 --> 00:28:57.140
  • If they can just discredit this as just a book,
  • 00:28:57.140 --> 00:29:00.090
  • a book of literature, instead of God's word.
  • 00:29:00.090 --> 00:29:03.040
  • - That's right.
  • 00:29:03.040 --> 00:29:04.110
  • - And just a few weeks after I said that,
  • 00:29:04.110 --> 00:29:05.260
  • GQ Magazine comes out and lists the top 20 books,
  • 00:29:05.260 --> 00:29:09.290
  • best-selling books of all time that you don't
  • 00:29:09.290 --> 00:29:11.150
  • need to read and they put the Bible on the list.
  • 00:29:11.150 --> 00:29:13.260
  • Of course to me, I thought it was kind of a joke,
  • 00:29:13.260 --> 00:29:16.260
  • if you're trying to figure out which book to read,
  • 00:29:16.260 --> 00:29:19.050
  • why would you read a fashion magazine?
  • 00:29:19.050 --> 00:29:21.020
  • What made them experts-- - Yeah, really, exactly.
  • 00:29:21.020 --> 00:29:22.210
  • - In which books, you know, I mean it was crazy.
  • 00:29:22.210 --> 00:29:24.200
  • But it's an attack in itself.
  • 00:29:24.200 --> 00:29:26.010
  • So here, Jonathan, you're sitting here,
  • 00:29:26.010 --> 00:29:28.230
  • you're a Messianic Rabbi, you're an author,
  • 00:29:28.230 --> 00:29:31.170
  • you're, and I'm gonna say this,
  • 00:29:31.170 --> 00:29:32.230
  • and you'll understand how I'm saying it,
  • 00:29:32.230 --> 00:29:34.200
  • you're known really as a leader around the world,
  • 00:29:34.200 --> 00:29:37.050
  • and that's something God does,
  • 00:29:37.050 --> 00:29:39.010
  • that's not something you or I feel proud about,
  • 00:29:39.010 --> 00:29:42.010
  • we just know God gives us a platform to use it.
  • 00:29:42.010 --> 00:29:44.010
  • So from the platform God's given you,
  • 00:29:44.010 --> 00:29:46.210
  • I mean, what do you think about the Tree of Life version
  • 00:29:46.210 --> 00:29:49.200
  • of the Bible and this process of, you know,
  • 00:29:49.200 --> 00:29:52.160
  • Jewish translation?
  • 00:29:52.160 --> 00:29:53.220
  • - Well it's crucial, as you've said,
  • 00:29:53.220 --> 00:29:55.220
  • rightfully, the Bible is under attack.
  • 00:29:55.220 --> 00:29:58.170
  • And the other thing we we're talking about,
  • 00:29:58.170 --> 00:30:00.140
  • what has been separated, what's been lost.
  • 00:30:00.140 --> 00:30:02.170
  • Every believer, I mean true believer, loves Jesus,
  • 00:30:02.170 --> 00:30:05.230
  • loves Yeshua, so the more, when you bring back these things,
  • 00:30:05.230 --> 00:30:09.060
  • you're bringing back, this is part of him.
  • 00:30:09.060 --> 00:30:11.090
  • So when we have people coming out on Friday night,
  • 00:30:11.090 --> 00:30:14.150
  • and Sunday mornings, it's because they love,
  • 00:30:14.150 --> 00:30:16.030
  • it's not just, they want everything that they can
  • 00:30:16.030 --> 00:30:18.090
  • about the Lord.
  • 00:30:18.090 --> 00:30:19.220
  • So these are, it's like putting back what has been lost.
  • 00:30:19.220 --> 00:30:21.170
  • So it's part of what needs to be.
  • 00:30:21.170 --> 00:30:23.060
  • I mean, these are days of while in the
  • 00:30:23.060 --> 00:30:25.150
  • world things are going crazy,
  • 00:30:25.150 --> 00:30:26.150
  • you know, the end times are,
  • 00:30:26.150 --> 00:30:27.290
  • you have dark but you have light too,
  • 00:30:27.290 --> 00:30:29.180
  • you know, it's polarization.
  • 00:30:29.180 --> 00:30:30.260
  • So at the same time, God is restoring.
  • 00:30:30.260 --> 00:30:33.020
  • He's restoring Israel, He's restoring aspects of the church,
  • 00:30:33.020 --> 00:30:37.080
  • and he is restoring his word.
  • 00:30:37.080 --> 00:30:39.050
  • So it's bringing back these things.
  • 00:30:39.050 --> 00:30:40.220
  • I mean to me, I'm blessed to open up a Bible.
  • 00:30:40.220 --> 00:30:42.160
  • I mean, listen, Jesus, the name is fine,
  • 00:30:42.160 --> 00:30:44.240
  • but his real name was Yeshua.
  • 00:30:44.240 --> 00:30:46.050
  • I mean, that's not, we didn't make it up.
  • 00:30:46.050 --> 00:30:47.170
  • So it brings the riches of these things.
  • 00:30:47.170 --> 00:30:50.020
  • So it's part of the restoration,
  • 00:30:50.020 --> 00:30:51.160
  • like we talk about everything coming back together,
  • 00:30:51.160 --> 00:30:53.050
  • that's part of it too.
  • 00:30:53.050 --> 00:30:54.190
  • So, it's a tremendous thing for everyone who loves the Lord,
  • 00:30:54.190 --> 00:30:58.140
  • this is, you want everything about him.
  • 00:30:58.140 --> 00:31:01.030
  • So you can't have Jesus and divorce everything about Jesus,
  • 00:31:01.030 --> 00:31:05.000
  • which is his family, which is his roots,
  • 00:31:05.000 --> 00:31:06.270
  • and it's your heritage too.
  • 00:31:06.270 --> 00:31:08.060
  • - Yeah, so okay, so we're gonna keep,
  • 00:31:08.060 --> 00:31:10.070
  • and I wanna back on you in just a minute.
  • 00:31:10.070 --> 00:31:12.080
  • But, I wanna give you an opportunity to get the Bible.
  • 00:31:12.080 --> 00:31:16.160
  • The Tree of Life version.
  • 00:31:16.160 --> 00:31:17.230
  • And here's the reason why, think about,
  • 00:31:17.230 --> 00:31:20.240
  • when I was growing up, we had the old
  • 00:31:20.240 --> 00:31:23.100
  • King James Version, you know.
  • 00:31:23.100 --> 00:31:25.080
  • - King Jacob. - Yeah, yeah, that's right.
  • 00:31:25.080 --> 00:31:28.180
  • I can remember when the New King James came out.
  • 00:31:29.240 --> 00:31:32.000
  • I could remember the New American Standard came out,
  • 00:31:32.000 --> 00:31:34.150
  • I remember when the New Living Translation,
  • 00:31:34.150 --> 00:31:36.210
  • and the Living Bible was almost the same burden that you had
  • 00:31:36.210 --> 00:31:40.240
  • He wanted to be able to read this Bible to his Children.
  • 00:31:40.240 --> 00:31:43.120
  • - That's right.
  • 00:31:43.120 --> 00:31:44.140
  • - So he never even thought that
  • 00:31:44.140 --> 00:31:45.210
  • it would be produced as a Bible.
  • 00:31:45.210 --> 00:31:47.210
  • He just wanted his children learning the Bible.
  • 00:31:47.210 --> 00:31:49.140
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:31:49.140 --> 00:31:50.200
  • - And so, you've got the Living Bible
  • 00:31:50.200 --> 00:31:51.230
  • and then the New Living Bible.
  • 00:31:51.230 --> 00:31:54.050
  • The Living Bible is a paraphrase,
  • 00:31:54.050 --> 00:31:56.040
  • but the New Living then became a translation.
  • 00:31:56.040 --> 00:31:58.200
  • - [Daniah] Right.
  • 00:31:58.200 --> 00:31:59.270
  • - Which means we go back to the original, okay.
  • 00:31:59.270 --> 00:32:01.150
  • But I remember when that came out.
  • 00:32:01.150 --> 00:32:02.220
  • I can remember when the message came out,
  • 00:32:02.220 --> 00:32:04.180
  • and what's exciting is to read a new version of the Bible.
  • 00:32:04.180 --> 00:32:09.070
  • Because, here's what I think we do sometimes,
  • 00:32:09.070 --> 00:32:11.220
  • when we open up our Bible to read,
  • 00:32:11.220 --> 00:32:13.230
  • and we start reading something,
  • 00:32:13.230 --> 00:32:15.110
  • our mind says, I've read this before.
  • 00:32:15.110 --> 00:32:18.010
  • - [Daniah] Fills in the blanks.
  • 00:32:18.010 --> 00:32:19.150
  • - And if we're not careful, we start thinking about,
  • 00:32:19.150 --> 00:32:21.060
  • you know, I need to pick up those clothes
  • 00:32:21.060 --> 00:32:23.070
  • from the dry cleaners 'cause they've been
  • 00:32:23.070 --> 00:32:24.190
  • there seven weeks now, and I keep forgetting.
  • 00:32:24.190 --> 00:32:27.200
  • And I need to get the oil changed,
  • 00:32:27.200 --> 00:32:28.280
  • it's been 27.000 miles, not 5.000 miles.
  • 00:32:28.280 --> 00:32:32.090
  • And our mind wanders, but we're still reading.
  • 00:32:32.090 --> 00:32:34.270
  • And we close our Bible, go to sleep,
  • 00:32:34.270 --> 00:32:37.130
  • and don't have the slightest idea what we just read.
  • 00:32:37.130 --> 00:32:39.220
  • But when we get a new version, to me, it just activates me.
  • 00:32:39.220 --> 00:32:43.200
  • That's what the Tree of Life Version did for me.
  • 00:32:43.200 --> 00:32:46.070
  • So here's what we want to do,
  • 00:32:46.070 --> 00:32:47.170
  • for a gift of $50 or more,
  • 00:32:47.170 --> 00:32:50.250
  • you can get the Tree of Life version of the Bible.
  • 00:32:50.250 --> 00:32:53.210
  • And I wanna show you how to do it,
  • 00:32:53.210 --> 00:32:55.130
  • I'm gonna show you a little clip.
  • 00:32:55.130 --> 00:32:56.280
  • But, I also want to tell you about a very special edition,
  • 00:32:56.280 --> 00:32:59.150
  • it's the Messianic Jewish Family Bible.
  • 00:32:59.150 --> 00:33:03.030
  • And this is a special edition,
  • 00:33:03.030 --> 00:33:05.110
  • it's for a gift of $150 Or more to help TBN
  • 00:33:05.110 --> 00:33:09.260
  • take the Gospel around the world.

  • (cheering)
  • 00:34:56.150 --> 00:34:58.070
  • - Welcome back to Praise.
  • 00:34:58.070 --> 00:34:59.250
  • And I really do want you to call,
  • 00:34:59.250 --> 00:35:02.010
  • I want you to go online, I want you to
  • 00:35:02.010 --> 00:35:03.140
  • get the Tree of Life Version of the Bible.
  • 00:35:03.140 --> 00:35:06.020
  • And I want you to get the Bible, because it will bless you.
  • 00:35:06.020 --> 00:35:08.020
  • I was just thinking about how,
  • 00:35:08.020 --> 00:35:10.010
  • we talked about, how God uses people.
  • 00:35:10.010 --> 00:35:12.060
  • Jonathan you talked about Jehu,
  • 00:35:12.060 --> 00:35:14.080
  • Jon you talked about Cyrus,
  • 00:35:14.080 --> 00:35:15.290
  • I even thought about Cyrus how 150 years before,
  • 00:35:15.290 --> 00:35:20.290
  • Isaiah prophesies about Cyrus, and said, "My shepherd."
  • 00:35:22.100 --> 00:35:26.010
  • And something that a lot of people don't know,
  • 00:35:27.060 --> 00:35:28.190
  • is Cyrus when he was born, there was a prophesy
  • 00:35:28.190 --> 00:35:31.030
  • that he would overthrow his grandfather.
  • 00:35:31.030 --> 00:35:33.070
  • And so his grandfather actually
  • 00:35:33.070 --> 00:35:35.100
  • ordered for him to be killed.
  • 00:35:35.100 --> 00:35:37.020
  • So his parents take him out and they meet a shepherd
  • 00:35:37.020 --> 00:35:40.170
  • and his wife who had a stillborn baby.
  • 00:35:40.170 --> 00:35:43.110
  • They actually switch babies.
  • 00:35:43.110 --> 00:35:45.190
  • They take this stillborn baby back,
  • 00:35:45.190 --> 00:35:47.080
  • and say, look this is Cyrus, he's dead.
  • 00:35:47.080 --> 00:35:50.140
  • And Cyrus was raised by a shepherd and his wife
  • 00:35:50.140 --> 00:35:53.140
  • for the first 10 years of his life.
  • 00:35:53.140 --> 00:35:55.110
  • The grandfather felt so bad about it,
  • 00:35:55.110 --> 00:35:57.220
  • that he just mourned for 10 years,
  • 00:35:57.220 --> 00:35:59.230
  • that on his 10th birthday, they said,
  • 00:35:59.230 --> 00:36:01.240
  • listen, he's still alive.
  • 00:36:01.240 --> 00:36:02.270
  • So they bring him back,
  • 00:36:02.270 --> 00:36:04.130
  • and so then Cyrus does become the king then, Persia.
  • 00:36:04.130 --> 00:36:09.090
  • He then takes over Babylon, where the children of Israel
  • 00:36:09.090 --> 00:36:12.130
  • are held captive, but they literally open the scriptures
  • 00:36:12.130 --> 00:36:15.130
  • and show him his name in Isaiah that was written 150 years
  • 00:36:15.130 --> 00:36:20.120
  • before what he would do for the Jewish people.
  • 00:36:21.170 --> 00:36:22.170
  • But here's what's amazing,
  • 00:36:22.170 --> 00:36:24.050
  • God says, "Cyrus, my shepherd."
  • 00:36:24.050 --> 00:36:28.030
  • And that's what got him because he realized God knew him.
  • 00:36:29.150 --> 00:36:33.050
  • God knew he had been raised by shepherds,
  • 00:36:33.050 --> 00:36:36.110
  • the first 10 years of his life.
  • 00:36:36.110 --> 00:36:37.270
  • - That's right. - And he then comes back,
  • 00:36:37.270 --> 00:36:40.010
  • and what I wanted to say about this is that
  • 00:36:40.010 --> 00:36:43.040
  • even though here Israel is going through
  • 00:36:43.040 --> 00:36:45.130
  • a time of exile, really disciplined
  • 00:36:45.130 --> 00:36:48.280
  • from the Lord for 70 years. - Yeah, yeah.
  • 00:36:48.280 --> 00:36:50.270
  • - Yet God was working behind the scenes
  • 00:36:50.270 --> 00:36:53.240
  • with Jehu one time, with Cyrus another time
  • 00:36:53.240 --> 00:36:57.000
  • many, many times he's still working behind scenes.
  • 00:36:57.000 --> 00:36:59.140
  • And what I want to say to you is,
  • 00:36:59.140 --> 00:37:01.040
  • no matter what you're going through right now,
  • 00:37:01.040 --> 00:37:02.240
  • even if you think you're going through a time of discipline,
  • 00:37:02.240 --> 00:37:05.060
  • or that you've dug a hole for yourself,
  • 00:37:05.060 --> 00:37:07.120
  • God is still working.
  • 00:37:07.120 --> 00:37:08.260
  • He's still got a plan and that's why I want you
  • 00:37:08.260 --> 00:37:10.280
  • to get the Tree of Life version,
  • 00:37:10.280 --> 00:37:12.220
  • and that's what I want you to get in the scripture.
  • 00:37:12.220 --> 00:37:14.200
  • So Daniah, tell us some more.
  • 00:37:14.200 --> 00:37:17.130
  • - Amen, well, I'm amazed that this is a wonderful connection
  • 00:37:17.130 --> 00:37:21.230
  • with what you just said.
  • 00:37:21.230 --> 00:37:22.290
  • I just want to read the end of 2 Chronicles
  • 00:37:22.290 --> 00:37:25.200
  • to you because it's so inspiring.
  • 00:37:25.200 --> 00:37:27.260
  • It says, "Now in the first year of King Cyrus of Persia,
  • 00:37:27.260 --> 00:37:30.030
  • "fulfilling the word of Adonai, by the mouth of Jeremiah."
  • 00:37:30.030 --> 00:37:33.010
  • Jeremiah was the last prophet spoken
  • 00:37:33.010 --> 00:37:35.040
  • of in the Old Testament, that's the part I love to remember.
  • 00:37:35.040 --> 00:37:38.180
  • "Adonai, stood up the spirit of King Cyrus of Persia
  • 00:37:38.180 --> 00:37:41.070
  • "so that he sent a proclamation throughout
  • 00:37:41.070 --> 00:37:42.260
  • "all of his kingdom and also put it in writing saying,
  • 00:37:42.260 --> 00:37:45.170
  • "Thus says King Cyrus of Persia,
  • 00:37:45.170 --> 00:37:47.230
  • "Adonai, the God of heaven has given me
  • 00:37:47.230 --> 00:37:50.000
  • "all the kingdoms of the earth, he's appointed me
  • 00:37:50.000 --> 00:37:51.270
  • "to build him a house in Jerusalem which is in Judea.
  • 00:37:51.270 --> 00:37:54.180
  • "Whoever among you, of all these people may go up,
  • 00:37:54.180 --> 00:37:57.100
  • "and my Adonai his God be with him."
  • 00:37:57.100 --> 00:38:00.170
  • So the children of Israel returning,
  • 00:38:00.170 --> 00:38:02.260
  • to be able to go and worship God again, is amazing.
  • 00:38:02.260 --> 00:38:05.120
  • But when you realized the promise of the New Covenant,
  • 00:38:05.120 --> 00:38:08.130
  • was given to Jeremiah, the last prophet spoken of.
  • 00:38:08.130 --> 00:38:11.210
  • When you return the Jewish order to the canon of scripture,
  • 00:38:11.210 --> 00:38:15.140
  • you're returning the New Covenant promise to the last thing
  • 00:38:15.140 --> 00:38:18.180
  • the Jews remember.
  • 00:38:18.180 --> 00:38:19.250
  • And so they're looking for Messiah to come.
  • 00:38:19.250 --> 00:38:22.040
  • Because that's where it says,
  • 00:38:22.040 --> 00:38:23.110
  • "they will all come to know me" in Jeremiah 31.
  • 00:38:23.110 --> 00:38:26.150
  • - Absolutely fantastic.
  • 00:38:26.150 --> 00:38:28.000
  • - [Daniah] It's just the best news.
  • 00:38:28.000 --> 00:38:29.080
  • - And, I just want to tell you again,
  • 00:38:29.080 --> 00:38:30.080
  • I love your zeal for the Lord,
  • 00:38:30.080 --> 00:38:32.140
  • and I love your zeal for the word of God,
  • 00:38:32.140 --> 00:38:34.270
  • and your zeal for the next generation.
  • 00:38:34.270 --> 00:38:38.050
  • - We have to teach our children the Bible.
  • 00:38:38.050 --> 00:38:40.250
  • That's the only thing that's gonna last,
  • 00:38:40.250 --> 00:38:42.290
  • that's the only thing that changes lives.
  • 00:38:42.290 --> 00:38:45.110
  • I mean, when I preach, I like to use humor,
  • 00:38:45.110 --> 00:38:50.080
  • 'cause I want people to listen to me.
  • 00:38:50.080 --> 00:38:51.150
  • Our motto in our children's ministry is
  • 00:38:51.150 --> 00:38:54.140
  • have fun and learn about God.
  • 00:38:54.140 --> 00:38:56.040
  • Because if they're not having fun,
  • 00:38:56.040 --> 00:38:58.070
  • they're not learning about God.
  • 00:38:58.070 --> 00:38:59.140
  • And someone asked me a while back,
  • 00:38:59.140 --> 00:39:01.020
  • "So what's your motto for big church, adult church?"
  • 00:39:01.020 --> 00:39:04.130
  • I said it is the same thing, have fun and learn about God.
  • 00:39:04.130 --> 00:39:06.250
  • (laughing)
  • 00:39:06.250 --> 00:39:08.040
  • - [Daniah] 'Cause they're children,
  • 00:39:08.040 --> 00:39:09.100
  • - Yeah, 'cause if they're not having fun,
  • 00:39:09.100 --> 00:39:10.090
  • they're not learning about God.
  • 00:39:10.090 --> 00:39:11.250
  • So yes, I like to present messages in a humorous way,
  • 00:39:11.250 --> 00:39:14.090
  • but if I don't fill my messages with the word of God,
  • 00:39:14.090 --> 00:39:17.040
  • nothing is gonna happen.
  • 00:39:17.040 --> 00:39:18.030
  • - [Daniah] That's right.
  • 00:39:18.030 --> 00:39:19.090
  • - No change is going to come about.
  • 00:39:19.090 --> 00:39:20.230
  • - That's exactly right, that's exactly right.
  • 00:39:20.230 --> 00:39:21.240
  • (clapping)
  • 00:39:21.240 --> 00:39:24.000
  • - So Jonathan, talk about what signs are we seeing right now
  • 00:39:25.250 --> 00:39:30.220
  • that, you know, when you talk about the Book of Mysteries.
  • 00:39:32.050 --> 00:39:34.210
  • We can talk about your latest book.
  • 00:39:34.210 --> 00:39:36.060
  • What's going on right now in our nation, in the world?
  • 00:39:36.060 --> 00:39:39.130
  • - Well we're in trouble, we're in the balance.
  • 00:39:39.130 --> 00:39:43.180
  • But, it's good and bad. I mean you see that bad increase,
  • 00:39:43.180 --> 00:39:47.250
  • but that God will always bring revival,
  • 00:39:47.250 --> 00:39:49.260
  • God is never finished, God is never out of ideas.
  • 00:39:49.260 --> 00:39:52.140
  • Whether it's Jehu, whether it's Cyrus, never finished.
  • 00:39:52.140 --> 00:39:55.100
  • So we have to be strong than ever,
  • 00:39:55.100 --> 00:39:56.210
  • and we have to get back to the way
  • 00:39:56.210 --> 00:39:58.260
  • they were back in the New Testament.
  • 00:39:58.260 --> 00:39:59.280
  • You know in those days
  • 00:39:59.280 --> 00:40:01.120
  • it was ungodly things all around them.
  • 00:40:01.120 --> 00:40:04.100
  • You know, days of Paul, days of Jeremiah
  • 00:40:04.100 --> 00:40:05.250
  • That's what we're in now, so we have to be more like that.
  • 00:40:05.250 --> 00:40:08.270
  • This is the part of the restoration, as we're saying.
  • 00:40:08.270 --> 00:40:11.170
  • I thought it would be good,
  • 00:40:11.170 --> 00:40:12.200
  • I'm gonna just share some things
  • 00:40:12.200 --> 00:40:14.180
  • that you would only, you'd miss, if you only have the Bible
  • 00:40:14.180 --> 00:40:18.100
  • in English, I'm not saying, of course that's great.
  • 00:40:18.100 --> 00:40:19.280
  • But the original is of course in Hebrew and Greek.
  • 00:40:19.280 --> 00:40:22.100
  • I'm gonna kind of take some things
  • 00:40:22.100 --> 00:40:23.110
  • from the Book of Mysteries to say
  • 00:40:23.110 --> 00:40:24.160
  • why this is so important to discover.
  • 00:40:24.160 --> 00:40:25.240
  • For instance, I'll give you an example,
  • 00:40:25.240 --> 00:40:27.140
  • in Hebrew, okay you read things in English,
  • 00:40:27.140 --> 00:40:30.140
  • you'd never see this, but in Hebrew, in the Bible there was
  • 00:40:30.140 --> 00:40:33.230
  • no such things as mercy, let me explain.
  • 00:40:33.230 --> 00:40:35.230
  • In Hebrew, you cannot say mercy, I'll tell you.
  • 00:40:35.230 --> 00:40:39.040
  • The word is rahamim.
  • 00:40:39.040 --> 00:40:40.190
  • And the word rachamim is not mercy, it's mercies.
  • 00:40:40.190 --> 00:40:44.140
  • You cannot say mercy, just mercy, you can't say it.
  • 00:40:44.140 --> 00:40:47.170
  • In the Bible it's translated that way,
  • 00:40:47.170 --> 00:40:49.130
  • but it's mercies, why?
  • 00:40:49.130 --> 00:40:51.130
  • Because what it's saying is,
  • 00:40:51.130 --> 00:40:52.280
  • God's mercy, there is no end to it, and no matter.
  • 00:40:52.280 --> 00:40:55.120
  • The word for sin, is singular. The word for mercy is plural.
  • 00:40:55.120 --> 00:40:58.240
  • So however much sin you have,
  • 00:40:58.240 --> 00:41:00.190
  • God has far more mercy than you'll ever have sin.
  • 00:41:00.190 --> 00:41:03.060
  • - [Robert] Wow!
  • 00:41:03.060 --> 00:41:04.080
  • - That's one example. (clapping)
  • 00:41:04.080 --> 00:41:05.210
  • - Is this like the famous scripture of Lamentations that,
  • 00:41:05.210 --> 00:41:08.290
  • the mercies of the Lord are new every morning?
  • 00:41:08.290 --> 00:41:11.200
  • - Yes, yes!
  • 00:41:11.200 --> 00:41:12.280
  • - Come to in the end.
  • 00:41:12.280 --> 00:41:15.110
  • - Some of the Bibles occasionally said--
  • 00:41:15.110 --> 00:41:16.200
  • - And I've needed plural mercies in my own life.
  • 00:41:16.200 --> 00:41:19.090
  • I've needed more than one.
  • 00:41:19.090 --> 00:41:20.260
  • - I have a little secret, I've needed that too.
  • 00:41:20.260 --> 00:41:22.160
  • Another example here, the word Jerusalem, now Jerusalem
  • 00:41:22.160 --> 00:41:27.060
  • but in Hebrew it's Yerushalayim.
  • 00:41:27.060 --> 00:41:29.020
  • Now Yerushalayim isn't Jerusalem,
  • 00:41:29.020 --> 00:41:30.180
  • what it means is, literally it means, Jerusalems.
  • 00:41:30.180 --> 00:41:34.060
  • Literally, you cannot say Jerusalem, in fact
  • 00:41:34.060 --> 00:41:36.030
  • the ending ushalayim means two Jerusalems.
  • 00:41:36.030 --> 00:41:39.280
  • Every time you say Jerusalem,
  • 00:41:39.280 --> 00:41:41.050
  • you're saying the two Jerusalems, why?
  • 00:41:41.050 --> 00:41:43.100
  • There's a Jerusalem you see,
  • 00:41:43.100 --> 00:41:44.160
  • and there's a Jerusalem you don't see.
  • 00:41:44.160 --> 00:41:46.010
  • The Jerusalem that is, the Jerusalem that's coming.
  • 00:41:46.010 --> 00:41:48.040
  • The Jerusalem that is always,
  • 00:41:48.040 --> 00:41:50.180
  • that's why when you go to Jerusalem,
  • 00:41:50.180 --> 00:41:51.160
  • it that there's something more,
  • 00:41:51.160 --> 00:41:52.230
  • there's something behind this thing.
  • 00:41:52.230 --> 00:41:53.290
  • We're all gonna be in Jerusalem forever,
  • 00:41:53.290 --> 00:41:55.140
  • but also here's another one, and most believers know Elohim
  • 00:41:55.140 --> 00:41:59.230
  • You know, God, that's not God, it's plural, God plural.
  • 00:41:59.230 --> 00:42:03.010
  • What does that mean? There's only one God.
  • 00:42:03.010 --> 00:42:05.010
  • It means no matter how much we think we know about God,
  • 00:42:05.010 --> 00:42:07.160
  • doesn't matter how long, there's always more,
  • 00:42:07.160 --> 00:42:09.210
  • there's always more, you can never,
  • 00:42:09.210 --> 00:42:11.110
  • there's always more than you could ever put.
  • 00:42:11.110 --> 00:42:13.030
  • When the Bible, when the Hebrew does it,
  • 00:42:13.030 --> 00:42:14.220
  • it's saying that the reality behind that word
  • 00:42:14.220 --> 00:42:17.170
  • is so big that no matter what you say, it's not big enough.
  • 00:42:17.170 --> 00:42:21.110
  • So that's why we have, that's why heaven is forever,
  • 00:42:21.110 --> 00:42:24.180
  • 'cause forever is the time that you need to get to know God,
  • 00:42:24.180 --> 00:42:27.240
  • to know God, that's it.
  • 00:42:27.240 --> 00:42:29.010
  • I'll give you one more, there's other things,
  • 00:42:29.010 --> 00:42:31.140
  • but one more about this kind of mystery.
  • 00:42:31.140 --> 00:42:32.290
  • And that kind, this is what bringing out,
  • 00:42:32.290 --> 00:42:35.260
  • when you read Isaiah 53, it says:
  • 00:42:35.260 --> 00:42:38.000
  • "With a rich man in his death."
  • 00:42:38.000 --> 00:42:40.110
  • We all know he died.
  • 00:42:40.110 --> 00:42:42.000
  • Doesn't say that in the Hebrew,
  • 00:42:42.000 --> 00:42:43.110
  • what it says is, "With a rich man in his deaths."
  • 00:42:43.110 --> 00:42:47.060
  • Why that?
  • 00:42:47.060 --> 00:42:48.200
  • Well one is, the Hebrew saying, what he went through for us
  • 00:42:48.200 --> 00:42:51.290
  • what Jesus, Messiah went through for us, you cannot put
  • 00:42:51.290 --> 00:42:54.130
  • it in a word, it was beyond death, beyond death.
  • 00:42:54.130 --> 00:42:56.190
  • But secondly it means that,
  • 00:42:56.190 --> 00:42:58.060
  • he didn't just die at his death, he died our death.
  • 00:42:58.060 --> 00:43:01.120
  • Our death is in the Hebrew.
  • 00:43:01.120 --> 00:43:02.270
  • Your death is in the Hebrew.
  • 00:43:02.270 --> 00:43:04.070
  • How great that is.
  • 00:43:04.070 --> 00:43:05.220
  • So, that's just a little example
  • 00:43:05.220 --> 00:43:07.210
  • of what's in the Bible but you don't see it.
  • 00:43:07.210 --> 00:43:10.070
  • - And this is in the Book of Mysteries.
  • 00:43:10.070 --> 00:43:12.080
  • - Yes, The Book of Mysteries and this is what this is about.
  • 00:43:12.080 --> 00:43:14.070
  • - Alright, so I'll come back in just a minute.
  • 00:43:14.070 --> 00:43:16.120
  • But I want to show you, we have a little clip
  • 00:43:16.120 --> 00:43:19.050
  • about the Book of Mysteries.
  • 00:43:19.050 --> 00:43:20.250
  • Because, again, I want to say to you,
  • 00:43:20.250 --> 00:43:23.140
  • the more you fill yourself with God's word,
  • 00:43:23.140 --> 00:43:26.290
  • the more your life will change.
  • 00:43:26.290 --> 00:43:28.220
  • And so many times, we have things going on in our life,
  • 00:43:28.220 --> 00:43:31.280
  • and we're saying, God, please change,
  • 00:43:31.280 --> 00:43:33.070
  • please change, please change.
  • 00:43:33.070 --> 00:43:34.200
  • And yet the answer is always, always in the Bible.
  • 00:43:34.200 --> 00:43:37.280
  • And so I just want to show you this,
  • 00:43:37.280 --> 00:43:40.020
  • on Jonathan's new book The Book of Mysteries.
  • 00:43:40.020 --> 00:43:43.120
  • - We'll be opening up The Book of Mysteries
  • 00:43:43.120 --> 00:43:45.230
  • to reveal what lies hidden, it can change
  • 00:43:45.230 --> 00:43:48.080
  • the way you live your life.
  • 00:43:48.080 --> 00:43:49.220
  • The teacher tells the disciple come.
  • 00:43:50.280 --> 00:43:53.230
  • - His teachings were not ordinary.
  • 00:43:53.230 --> 00:43:56.000
  • No set time, no set place.
  • 00:43:56.000 --> 00:43:58.050
  • It could be triggered by nearly anything.
  • 00:43:58.050 --> 00:44:00.120
  • - [Narrator] Did you ever wonder
  • 00:44:00.120 --> 00:44:01.190
  • why Messiah wore a crown of thorns?
  • 00:44:01.190 --> 00:44:03.040
  • This is unique of all the books in the Bible.
  • 00:44:03.040 --> 00:44:06.110
  • Do you know the name of God?
  • 00:44:06.110 --> 00:44:07.220
  • - [Man] I don't even know the name.
  • 00:44:07.220 --> 00:44:09.060
  • - [Narrator] There's a mystery in God and in history.
  • 00:44:09.060 --> 00:44:12.160
  • - When it comes to the words of the Bible
  • 00:44:12.160 --> 00:44:14.030
  • every word matters.
  • 00:44:14.030 --> 00:44:15.290
  • It doesn't say to the Lord belongs mercy,
  • 00:44:15.290 --> 00:44:18.270
  • it says to the Lord belongs rachamim, mercies.
  • 00:44:18.270 --> 00:44:23.080
  • - In the New Testament, we read,
  • 00:44:23.080 --> 00:44:24.220
  • "We are his workmanship," poiema.
  • 00:44:24.220 --> 00:44:27.210
  • - Get into being the poem of God.
  • 00:44:27.210 --> 00:44:30.100
  • Let your life be written by God.
  • 00:44:30.100 --> 00:44:33.170
  • From ancient times, God appointed this exact date,
  • 00:44:33.170 --> 00:44:38.130
  • this exact scripture.
  • 00:44:38.130 --> 00:44:39.250
  • The ancient biblical mystery has determined,
  • 00:44:39.250 --> 00:44:42.030
  • God is real and faithful.
  • 00:44:42.030 --> 00:44:43.100
  • He's more powerful than history.
  • 00:44:43.100 --> 00:44:45.160
  • Take this now and apply it to your life.
  • 00:44:45.160 --> 00:44:48.190
  • This is Jonathan Cahn saying, shalom.
  • 00:44:48.190 --> 00:44:50.230
  • (clapping)
  • 00:44:52.120 --> 00:44:54.260
  • - Absolutely phenomenal.
  • 00:44:54.260 --> 00:44:56.150
  • - And TBN did a great job, putting, it's the book
  • 00:44:56.150 --> 00:45:00.180
  • but they made this into it.
  • 00:45:00.180 --> 00:45:01.260
  • But there's no end to the mysteries of God.
  • 00:45:01.260 --> 00:45:03.260
  • I know you know it, but it's awesome.
  • 00:45:03.260 --> 00:45:05.180
  • The Bible is amazing.
  • 00:45:05.180 --> 00:45:06.180
  • - It's absolutely fantastic.
  • 00:45:06.180 --> 00:45:08.050
  • So Daniah, when we talk of getting Tree of Life version,
  • 00:45:08.050 --> 00:45:12.050
  • things that God showed in these Jewish scholars,
  • 00:45:12.050 --> 00:45:15.150
  • and even things that you learned through this
  • 00:45:15.150 --> 00:45:18.020
  • in your own quest, I know you went on a pretty
  • 00:45:18.020 --> 00:45:20.160
  • strong Bible quest yourself.
  • 00:45:20.160 --> 00:45:22.080
  • - So tell me something that God spoke to you about this.
  • 00:45:22.080 --> 00:45:26.160
  • - I think one of the most important things to do
  • 00:45:26.160 --> 00:45:27.290
  • is to remember that we want to make an impact with
  • 00:45:27.290 --> 00:45:30.030
  • with our families and our children.
  • 00:45:30.030 --> 00:45:31.230
  • And so the covenant of God that this Bible represents
  • 00:45:31.230 --> 00:45:36.110
  • is the blood covenant that we believe
  • 00:45:36.110 --> 00:45:38.070
  • happened when Messiah gave his life for us.
  • 00:45:38.070 --> 00:45:40.240
  • But that blood covenant started with a promise
  • 00:45:40.240 --> 00:45:43.010
  • in a garden to a couple, right?
  • 00:45:43.010 --> 00:45:44.230
  • There was a promise that God would defeat sin and death.
  • 00:45:44.230 --> 00:45:47.170
  • And in doing so, it went from a couple in a garden
  • 00:45:47.170 --> 00:45:51.230
  • to that same, to the blood covenant going to Noah
  • 00:45:51.230 --> 00:45:54.100
  • which was to a family, then between generations
  • 00:45:54.100 --> 00:45:56.250
  • with Abraham and Sarah and from there to Moses
  • 00:45:56.250 --> 00:45:59.240
  • at Mount Sinai to Yeshua which is an outreach to the world.
  • 00:45:59.240 --> 00:46:03.050
  • The five steps of that covenant is an expanding message
  • 00:46:03.050 --> 00:46:06.170
  • of salvation to the whole world.
  • 00:46:06.170 --> 00:46:08.160
  • And to be able to teach that to our children,
  • 00:46:08.160 --> 00:46:10.190
  • that our salvation is found in Yeshua
  • 00:46:10.190 --> 00:46:12.160
  • is critical path for us.
  • 00:46:12.160 --> 00:46:15.060
  • But teaching our children about morals
  • 00:46:15.060 --> 00:46:17.150
  • and values and things that we learn in the Bible
  • 00:46:17.150 --> 00:46:19.170
  • is a daily walk with our children
  • 00:46:19.170 --> 00:46:22.070
  • and our children's children.
  • 00:46:22.070 --> 00:46:23.230
  • And I think there's mothers out there
  • 00:46:23.230 --> 00:46:25.170
  • who want to know, how do I reach my kids?
  • 00:46:25.170 --> 00:46:27.180
  • and how do I, I can't just hand them a Bible,
  • 00:46:27.180 --> 00:46:30.070
  • how are they gonna get it?
  • 00:46:30.070 --> 00:46:31.150
  • Well the answer is that, there's a journey
  • 00:46:31.150 --> 00:46:34.050
  • that we go on in Judaism, and when you add
  • 00:46:34.050 --> 00:46:36.060
  • the journey of Israel to the revelation of Messiah,
  • 00:46:36.060 --> 00:46:39.120
  • that bipedal motion propels us forward with the love of God.
  • 00:46:39.120 --> 00:46:42.270
  • And that's what I want to see for my kids.
  • 00:46:42.270 --> 00:46:44.130
  • - That's great. And so I just want to come back
  • 00:46:44.130 --> 00:46:47.010
  • to Jonathan in just a moment.
  • 00:46:47.010 --> 00:46:48.260
  • But I just wanted to, one more time, remind you
  • 00:46:48.260 --> 00:46:52.010
  • that you can get the Tree of Life version
  • 00:46:52.010 --> 00:46:54.160

  • for a gift of $150 or more.
  • 00:47:01.180 --> 00:47:04.010
  • I love TBN in the fact that, there not selling
  • 00:47:04.010 --> 00:47:07.050
  • merchandise, or some sort of trinket or something
  • 00:47:07.050 --> 00:47:11.210
  • that you, you know.
  • 00:47:11.210 --> 00:47:12.260
  • It's something you can use.
  • 00:47:12.260 --> 00:47:14.190
  • And the gift then helps TBN
  • 00:47:14.190 --> 00:47:18.040
  • take the Gospel all over the world.
  • 00:47:18.040 --> 00:47:19.040
  • So you send a gift and in turn
  • 00:47:19.040 --> 00:47:21.270
  • you get something that you can help your family with.
  • 00:47:21.270 --> 00:47:24.150

  • I love this version of the Bible.
  • 00:49:16.060 --> 00:49:17.200
  • Daniah, you and your husband Mark did a great job.
  • 00:49:17.200 --> 00:49:20.040
  • I just got to go back to Jonathan for a moment,
  • 00:49:20.040 --> 00:49:23.150
  • and I got to hear some more mysteries.
  • 00:49:23.150 --> 00:49:25.020
  • The reason is, I'm getting some sermon material here.
  • 00:49:25.020 --> 00:49:27.270
  • I'll be preaching this.
  • 00:49:27.270 --> 00:49:30.210
  • And the first time I preach it,
  • 00:49:30.210 --> 00:49:31.280
  • I'm gonna give you credit for it.
  • 00:49:31.280 --> 00:49:33.110
  • Second time, I'm gonna say,
  • 00:49:33.110 --> 00:49:34.160
  • the Lord showed me this, if you don't mind.
  • 00:49:34.160 --> 00:49:36.260
  • Third time, I'll just say, you know, I figured this out.
  • 00:49:36.260 --> 00:49:38.210
  • (laughing)
  • 00:49:38.210 --> 00:49:39.210
  • So tell me some more mysteries.
  • 00:49:39.210 --> 00:49:42.070
  • - Some of the things that have been lost,
  • 00:49:42.070 --> 00:49:44.090
  • when you put it back togethor.
  • 00:49:44.090 --> 00:49:45.160
  • This is from The Book of Mystries,
  • 00:49:45.160 --> 00:49:46.290
  • but this is something, another thing about Hebrew.
  • 00:49:46.290 --> 00:49:48.100
  • Number one is that people don't realize,
  • 00:49:48.100 --> 00:49:49.290
  • in Hebrew, you know, in English
  • 00:49:49.290 --> 00:49:51.150
  • we have past, present future, in Hebrew you actually don't.
  • 00:49:51.150 --> 00:49:54.230
  • It actually is timeless, in the original Hebrew.
  • 00:49:54.230 --> 00:49:56.170
  • There are things used to make it, but there's only
  • 00:49:56.170 --> 00:50:00.020
  • two tenses, prefect and imperfect.
  • 00:50:00.020 --> 00:50:02.010
  • Imperfect means, it's not finished,
  • 00:50:02.010 --> 00:50:04.270
  • perfect means it's finished.
  • 00:50:04.270 --> 00:50:06.040
  • But here's the thing in the Bible,
  • 00:50:06.040 --> 00:50:07.260
  • throughout the Bible, God speaks of future events
  • 00:50:07.260 --> 00:50:11.030
  • as if they are past and done and finished.
  • 00:50:11.030 --> 00:50:14.020
  • In Isaiah 53, it's past tense,
  • 00:50:14.020 --> 00:50:17.250
  • as well as everything, why?
  • 00:50:17.250 --> 00:50:20.010
  • There's a secret in Hebrew,
  • 00:50:20.010 --> 00:50:21.080
  • is you live your life from the perfect.
  • 00:50:21.080 --> 00:50:23.110
  • That means you live from the finished.
  • 00:50:23.110 --> 00:50:24.290
  • I'm not trying to become that person,
  • 00:50:24.290 --> 00:50:27.010
  • I live from the person I become, you know.
  • 00:50:27.010 --> 00:50:29.290
  • I live from the end.
  • 00:50:29.290 --> 00:50:31.060
  • I don't live from Earth to Heaven.
  • 00:50:31.060 --> 00:50:32.120
  • I live from Heaven to Earth. - Right.
  • 00:50:32.120 --> 00:50:33.260
  • - The secret of living, I fight my battle it is already won.
  • 00:50:33.260 --> 00:50:37.150
  • Everything is from the finished, it's all perfect.
  • 00:50:37.150 --> 00:50:39.260
  • But one thing I want to share also,
  • 00:50:39.260 --> 00:50:41.070
  • is that people don't realize,
  • 00:50:41.070 --> 00:50:43.110
  • in the Bible, God give these holy days.
  • 00:50:43.110 --> 00:50:46.190
  • holy days are not just for Israel,
  • 00:50:46.190 --> 00:50:47.250
  • because they speak about Messiah.
  • 00:50:47.250 --> 00:50:49.170
  • But I'm gonna tell you one and that is this,
  • 00:50:49.170 --> 00:50:51.110
  • there's one day, in the Hebrew Bible in what God established
  • 00:50:51.110 --> 00:50:55.130
  • and that is, it's the day that ended the winter.
  • 00:50:55.130 --> 00:50:58.040
  • It says spring has come,
  • 00:50:58.040 --> 00:50:59.210
  • new life has come, the winter is over.
  • 00:50:59.210 --> 00:51:01.250
  • The day was called, it was called the day of the Reishit,
  • 00:51:01.250 --> 00:51:04.090
  • or the first fruit, and it happened at a certain time
  • 00:51:04.090 --> 00:51:07.110
  • in the middle of Passover.
  • 00:51:07.110 --> 00:51:08.250
  • So on that day, it's saying, the first fruit
  • 00:51:08.250 --> 00:51:12.050
  • is lifted up so new life, the winter is over.
  • 00:51:12.050 --> 00:51:15.070
  • People don't realize that, that is
  • 00:51:16.100 --> 00:51:17.260
  • the exact day that Messiah rose as the first fruit,
  • 00:51:17.260 --> 00:51:21.130
  • resurrection on the Hebrew day.
  • 00:51:21.130 --> 00:51:23.100
  • Messiah did, Jesus did everything on Hebrew days,
  • 00:51:23.100 --> 00:51:25.290
  • but he rose saying the winter is over in your life,
  • 00:51:25.290 --> 00:51:28.270
  • all that is over, but something more.
  • 00:51:28.270 --> 00:51:30.180
  • The word reishit, which means first fruit,
  • 00:51:30.180 --> 00:51:32.290
  • the first word of the Bible is b'reishit,
  • 00:51:32.290 --> 00:51:36.090
  • in the beginning, it also means beginning.
  • 00:51:36.090 --> 00:51:38.040
  • And so when they translated, the Rabbis
  • 00:51:38.040 --> 00:51:41.140
  • translated reishit into Greek, they came up
  • 00:51:41.140 --> 00:51:44.000
  • with the word genesis, so what that means is,
  • 00:51:44.000 --> 00:51:47.030
  • Jesus, the day he rose, he chose to rise
  • 00:51:47.030 --> 00:51:49.190
  • it was called the day of genesis.
  • 00:51:49.190 --> 00:51:51.290
  • It's the new genesis, it's the new beginning.
  • 00:51:51.290 --> 00:51:53.250
  • So that means not matter what has been,
  • 00:51:53.250 --> 00:51:55.160
  • it's the power that everything is new.
  • 00:51:55.160 --> 00:51:58.020
  • He is our genesis, he's our reishit,
  • 00:51:58.020 --> 00:52:00.070
  • he's our first fruit, all things are new.
  • 00:52:00.070 --> 00:52:02.100
  • That's just a little.
  • 00:52:02.100 --> 00:52:03.200
  • - Phenomenal, Phenomenal. - Amen
  • 00:52:03.200 --> 00:52:05.020
  • - I'll tell you what's amazing about that
  • 00:52:05.020 --> 00:52:06.110
  • is when you think about that, and us becoming
  • 00:52:06.110 --> 00:52:10.020
  • you're talking about 2 Corinthians 5, new creations.
  • 00:52:10.020 --> 00:52:13.230
  • We're a genesis, we're a new beginning.
  • 00:52:13.230 --> 00:52:15.170
  • In other words God didn't just,
  • 00:52:15.170 --> 00:52:17.020
  • I didn't just turn over a new leaf
  • 00:52:17.020 --> 00:52:18.120
  • - [Jon] That's right.
  • 00:52:18.120 --> 00:52:19.270
  • - I got a whole new life when I accepted the Lord.
  • 00:52:19.270 --> 00:52:21.140
  • And it's like the finished thing,
  • 00:52:21.140 --> 00:52:24.190
  • in other words, I'm living on this Earth,
  • 00:52:24.190 --> 00:52:26.130
  • but the Bible talks about I've been saved,
  • 00:52:26.130 --> 00:52:28.220
  • I've been redeemed, I've been adopted,
  • 00:52:28.220 --> 00:52:31.150
  • I was predestined, the past tense.
  • 00:52:31.150 --> 00:52:34.260
  • Even in a Ephesians 1, and so I've received that.
  • 00:52:34.260 --> 00:52:38.020
  • - [Jon] Awesome.
  • 00:52:38.020 --> 00:52:39.000
  • - I've received that right now.
  • 00:52:39.000 --> 00:52:40.150
  • - [Jon] That's awesome, you're gonna preach that.
  • 00:52:40.150 --> 00:52:41.250
  • - I am gonna preach that. - Praise God.
  • 00:52:41.250 --> 00:52:43.020
  • - Daniah, anything else you want to say
  • 00:52:43.020 --> 00:52:44.200
  • about the Tree of Life version?
  • 00:52:44.200 --> 00:52:46.190

  • 00:53:04.040 --> 00:53:07.050
  • - Well I want to encourage you
  • 00:53:07.050 --> 00:53:08.260
  • to get the Tree of Life version of the bible.
  • 00:53:08.260 --> 00:53:10.190
  • I also want to just tell ya,
  • 00:53:10.190 --> 00:53:12.100
  • something that happened in my
  • 00:53:12.100 --> 00:53:13.170
  • own life, when God began showing me
  • 00:53:13.170 --> 00:53:15.280
  • about the Jewish people, and about loving Israel.
  • 00:53:15.280 --> 00:53:19.180
  • I was having my quiet time one moring,
  • 00:53:19.180 --> 00:53:21.210
  • and I read the scripture about,
  • 00:53:21.210 --> 00:53:24.060
  • pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • 00:53:24.060 --> 00:53:26.110
  • And I hate to admit this to you,
  • 00:53:26.110 --> 00:53:28.020
  • but I'm going to admit it.
  • 00:53:28.020 --> 00:53:29.150
  • This was years ago, I started praying for the church.
  • 00:53:29.150 --> 00:53:33.110
  • Because in my theology where I'd raised,
  • 00:53:33.110 --> 00:53:36.240
  • when the Bible said Jerusalem in Israel,
  • 00:53:36.240 --> 00:53:38.130
  • it meant the church.
  • 00:53:38.130 --> 00:53:40.060
  • And so I was replacement theology,
  • 00:53:40.060 --> 00:53:41.220
  • I was, past tense, but I didn't know I was.
  • 00:53:41.220 --> 00:53:44.130
  • And so the Lord, I starting praying for the church
  • 00:53:44.130 --> 00:53:46.190
  • and I felt like the Lord said, I didn't tell you
  • 00:53:46.190 --> 00:53:48.070
  • to pray for the Church, I told you to pray for Jerusalem.
  • 00:53:48.070 --> 00:53:50.260
  • And so I did.
  • 00:53:50.260 --> 00:53:52.000
  • And God started opening my eyes and then
  • 00:53:52.000 --> 00:53:54.230
  • we began learning about our Jewish roots.
  • 00:53:54.230 --> 00:53:57.250
  • And I just so fell in love with everything I learned.
  • 00:53:57.250 --> 00:54:02.030
  • And then God, we started Gateway, and God began
  • 00:54:02.030 --> 00:54:05.220
  • to bless Gateway Church and began to give us resources
  • 00:54:05.220 --> 00:54:08.140
  • that almost unheard of resources,
  • 00:54:08.140 --> 00:54:10.270
  • that we could sow into missions.
  • 00:54:10.270 --> 00:54:12.220
  • And one of the things that we did when we started
  • 00:54:12.220 --> 00:54:14.140
  • was we took the tithe, of the tithe,
  • 00:54:14.140 --> 00:54:17.240
  • we took the first 10%, and we gave it to Israel
  • 00:54:17.240 --> 00:54:21.050
  • to bless Israel.
  • 00:54:21.050 --> 00:54:22.010
  • To Jewish ministries.
  • 00:54:22.010 --> 00:54:23.180
  • And the other thing that we did
  • 00:54:23.180 --> 00:54:25.070
  • was we began sowing it at the first,
  • 00:54:25.070 --> 00:54:27.280
  • like the first day of the month.
  • 00:54:27.280 --> 00:54:29.110
  • January 1st, February 1st, March 1st.
  • 00:54:29.110 --> 00:54:31.190
  • We wanted the first check that we wrote to go out.
  • 00:54:31.190 --> 00:54:34.110
  • And one day, the Lord spoke to me very very clearly
  • 00:54:34.110 --> 00:54:37.250
  • about the reason he had blessed us so much.
  • 00:54:37.250 --> 00:54:39.280
  • I want you to hear this.
  • 00:54:39.280 --> 00:54:41.000
  • He gave me like a parable.
  • 00:54:41.000 --> 00:54:43.150
  • He said there was an orphanage,
  • 00:54:43.150 --> 00:54:45.100
  • and there was a very cruel head of the orphanage.
  • 00:54:45.100 --> 00:54:48.290
  • But there was a very benevolent father
  • 00:54:48.290 --> 00:54:50.250
  • that lived down the road,
  • 00:54:50.250 --> 00:54:52.100
  • and he had come up with a plan, the benevolent father,
  • 00:54:52.100 --> 00:54:54.270
  • to adopt all the children in the orphanage.
  • 00:54:54.270 --> 00:54:57.250
  • And so he adopted a few, and showed them his kindness
  • 00:54:57.250 --> 00:55:01.270
  • so that the other children would choose to be adopted.
  • 00:55:01.270 --> 00:55:06.130
  • And the plan worked.
  • 00:55:06.130 --> 00:55:07.270
  • And the other children begin to choose to be adopted,
  • 00:55:07.270 --> 00:55:10.000
  • but the original children got jealous and left.
  • 00:55:10.000 --> 00:55:14.000
  • And the Lord spoke to me and said,
  • 00:55:14.000 --> 00:55:15.220
  • "And then you, Robert, came to me, and said
  • 00:55:15.220 --> 00:55:18.050
  • "that I love living here, but I'm concerned about

  • "And I'd like to go see if I can get them to come home."
  • 00:55:24.000 --> 00:55:26.230
  • And the Lord pulled out his wallet, and said,
  • 00:55:26.230 --> 00:55:29.020
  • "How much do you need?"
  • 00:55:29.020 --> 00:55:30.130
