  • AND YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE TODAY'S PROGRAM.
  • 00:02:04.200 --> 00:02:07.020
  • AND NOW HERE IS PASTOR GREG LAURIE.
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:10.120
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:11.120
  • (Greg Laurie) ISRAEL IS BORDERED BY
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:12.120
  • EGYPT, JORDAN, SYRIA, AND LEBANON.
  • 00:02:12.150 --> 00:02:16.130
  • THE COUNTRY OF ISRAEL SPANS A TOTAL AREA OF
  • 00:02:16.160 --> 00:02:19.120
  • 20.770 SQUARE KILOMETERS.
  • 00:02:19.150 --> 00:02:24.010
  • THAT IS BASICALLY THE SIZE OF NEW JERSEY.
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:27.080
  • YET ISRAEL IS CONSIDERED
  • 00:02:27.110 --> 00:02:28.180
  • TO BE THE EPICENTER OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:28.210 --> 00:02:32.010
  • THE CITY OF JERUSALEM LOCATED ON A PLATEAU IN
  • 00:02:32.040 --> 00:02:35.040
  • THE JUDEAN MOUNTAINS BETWEEN THE MEDITERRANEAN
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:37.180
  • AND THE DEAD SEA IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE
  • 00:02:37.210 --> 00:02:40.250
  • EPICENTER OF ISRAEL. HEY THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:44.230
  • THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WANDERED AROUND IN THIS
  • 00:02:44.260 --> 00:02:47.120
  • VERY DESERT FOR 40 YEARS. HEY WHY WAS THAT?
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:51.250
  • IS IT BECAUSE MEN WERE IN CHARGE AND THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:02:51.280 --> 00:02:53.210
  • WANT TO STOP AND ASK FOR DIRECTIONS?
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:56.180
  • OR WAS IT BECAUSE THEY WERE WANDERING AROUND
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:02:59.130
  • AND AROUND IN CIRCLES?
  • 00:02:59.160 --> 00:03:01.110
  • YEAH. I THINK IT WAS THE LATTER.
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:03.020
  • ABRAHAM FOUGHT A WAR HERE.
  • 00:03:03.050 --> 00:03:04.230
  • DAVID HID FROM KING SAUL
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:06.050
  • IN THE CAVES RIGHT AROUND HERE.
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:08.160
  • AND OF COURSE THE STORY OF MASADA TOOK PLACE AND KING
  • 00:03:08.190 --> 00:03:11.140
  • HEROD ACTUALLY BUILT THAT AS HIS GETAWAY PALACE.
  • 00:03:11.170 --> 00:03:17.050
  • HEY I AM ALL ABOUT HISTORY
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:18.080
  • AND TRADITION AND I CAN WALK.
  • 00:03:18.110 --> 00:03:20.110
  • I HAVE RIDDEN CAMELS. I HAVE RIDDEN DONKEYS.
  • 00:03:20.140 --> 00:03:23.090
  • BUT TODAY I AM VISITING THE DEAD SEA AND I PLAN TO
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:26.120
  • PUT A LOT MORE HORSEPOWER INTO THIS JOURNEY.
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:29.210
  • 00:03:29.240 --> 00:03:34.220
  • ON THIS DAY TREK MY FRIEND IDO KEYNAN A
  • 00:03:34.250 --> 00:03:37.110
  • SEVENTH GENERATION ISRAELI AND MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE
  • 00:03:37.140 --> 00:03:40.250
  • CATHE ARE ALL BUCKLED IN OUR JEEP.
  • 00:03:40.280 --> 00:03:43.220
  • THE TERRAIN IS PRETTY ROUGH AND ROCKY.
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:46.040
  • AND WE ARE UP FOR ADVENTURE AS WE SET OFF ON
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:48.090
  • THIS FOUR WHEEL EXCURSION.
  • 00:03:48.120 --> 00:03:51.110
  • AS A GUIDE YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE HEADED AND YOU
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:53.260
  • KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE GOING.
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:55.250
  • IN THIS CASE HE JUST OVERFLOWS WITH A WEALTH OF
  • 00:03:55.280 --> 00:03:59.030
  • KNOWLEDGE AND A SENSE OF DIRECTION.
  • 00:03:59.060 --> 00:04:01.290
  • MESMERIZED BY HIS STORIES, HIS INSIGHT, AND ACCOUNTS
  • 00:04:02.020 --> 00:04:05.180
  • FROM SCRIPTURE OUR TWO HOUR JOURNEY CAME TO LIFE
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:08.100
  • WITH SOME VIVID DEPICTIONS.
  • 00:04:08.130 --> 00:04:10.230
  • SO WHEN JESUS WAS TEMPTED IN THE WILDERNESS IS THIS
  • 00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:14.150
  • WHAT IT WOULD HAVE LOOKED LIKE TO HIM?
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:16.260
  • PASTOR GREG, IT IS EXACTLY HOW IT LOOKED TO HIM
  • 00:04:16.290 --> 00:04:21.160
  • BECAUSE WHAT IS 2.000 YEARS?
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:25.280
  • LOOK AROUND YOU.
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:27.060
  • THE SAME FORMATIONS THAT YOU SEE OF THOSE MOUNTAINS
  • 00:04:27.090 --> 00:04:30.120
  • AND OF THOSE HILLS, OF THOSE NARROW PASSES, THAT
  • 00:04:30.150 --> 00:04:34.050
  • IS WHAT OUR LORD SAW EVERY MORNING AND EVERY EVENING
  • 00:04:34.080 --> 00:04:39.180
  • HERE IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:04:39.210 --> 00:04:41.090
  • AS YOU CAN SEE THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY.
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:44.270
  • THERE IS NOTHING THAT
  • 00:04:45.000 --> 00:04:45.240
  • IS OF THE 20TH OR 21ST CENTURY.
  • 00:04:45.270 --> 00:04:47.150
  • EVERYTHING YOU SEE OVER HERE IS NATURAL GOING BACK
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:51.170
  • ALL OF THE WAY THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.
  • 00:04:51.200 --> 00:04:54.150
  • THIS IS THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:55.200
  • THERE IS NOTHING HERE FOR MILES AND MILES AWAY.
  • 00:04:55.230 --> 00:04:59.120
  • THIS IS WHERE IT WAS CHOSEN TO TAKE OUR LORD
  • 00:04:59.150 --> 00:05:03.260
  • FOR 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS AWAY FROM ANY CIVILIZATION
  • 00:05:03.290 --> 00:05:08.220
  • TO BE TEMPTED IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE.
  • 00:05:08.250 --> 00:05:11.260
  • THAT IS WHERE HE WAS.
  • 00:05:11.290 --> 00:05:13.140
  • IN THIS AREA BECAUSE THIS IS THE JUDEAN WILDERNESS.
  • 00:05:13.170 --> 00:05:17.090
  • THAT IS AN INTERESTING ONE FOLKS.
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:19.070
  • YOU ARE GOING FEEL THAT AND THAT LITTLE BUMP IS
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:22.030
  • A SLIDE OFF THE LEFT BACK WHEEL.
  • 00:05:22.060 --> 00:05:27.180
  • HERE WE GO.
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:29.160
  • HALLELUJAH.
  • 00:05:29.190 --> 00:05:32.070
  • (Greg Laurie) I DID IT BETTER THAN HIM.
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:37.150
  • OH MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:05:37.180 --> 00:05:38.210
  • IT IS LIKE THE OTHER ONE LOOKED SO HAIRY
  • 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:40.220
  • AND THEN I HIT NOTHING.
  • 00:05:40.250 --> 00:05:41.220
  • (Cathe Laurie) I AM GLAD THESE ARE
  • 00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:42.140
  • PADDED BARS BACK HERE.
  • 00:05:42.170 --> 00:05:43.130
  • (Greg Laurie) JUST HOLD ON MONK.
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:44.060
  • (Cathe Laurie) YEAH.
  • 00:05:44.090 --> 00:05:45.030
  • (Greg Laurie) THIS IS CRAZY.
  • 00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:46.080
  • IT WAS IN 1947 THAT A YOUNG BEDOUIN SHEPHERD
  • 00:05:46.110 --> 00:05:49.100
  • DISCOVERED IN THESE QUMRAN CAVES SOME WELL-PRESERVED
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:52.240
  • WRITTEN REMAINS AND THEN LATER IN 1949
  • 00:05:52.270 --> 00:05:56.230
  • ARCHAEOLOGISTS EXCAVATED WHICH WERE LATER TO BE
  • 00:05:56.260 --> 00:05:59.280
  • REFERRED TO AS THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
  • 00:06:00.030 --> 00:06:03.260
  • NOW PASTOR, THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS.
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:08.120
  • DO YOU BELIEVE IN LUCK?
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:09.250
  • (Greg Laurie) NO.
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:10.260
  • (Ido Keynan) GOOD. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:11.260
  • THINGS HAPPEN JUST AS THEY HAPPEN?
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:13.100
  • (Greg Laurie) NO.
  • 00:06:13.130 --> 00:06:14.090
  • (Ido Keynan) SO WHY DO YOU THINK
  • 00:06:14.120 --> 00:06:15.080
  • THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS WERE FOUND?
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:16.110
  • (Greg Laurie) TO CONFIRM WHAT IS
  • 00:06:16.140 --> 00:06:19.170
  • TAUGHT ALREADY IN SCRIPTURE
  • 00:06:19.200 --> 00:06:23.090
  • (Ido Keynan) AMEN. AND YOU ARE SO RIGHT.
  • 00:06:23.120 --> 00:06:24.290
  • AT A CERTAIN POINT GOD DECIDED OKAY I AM GOING
  • 00:06:25.020 --> 00:06:28.010
  • TO BRING MY PEOPLE BACK TO MY LAND.
  • 00:06:28.040 --> 00:06:29.250
  • I HAVE GOT TO PROVE TO THE WORLD THAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:06:29.280 --> 00:06:32.140
  • THE RIGHT TO A DEED.
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:33.260
  • AND WHAT IS THE DEED? THE BIBLE.
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.230
  • SO LET ME FIND THEM THE OLDEST ONE AND THAT IS
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:40.010
  • 2.000 YEARS OLD THAT IF ANYONE COMES TO SAY HEY
  • 00:06:40.040 --> 00:06:43.010
  • COME ON WHAT YOU HAVE TODAY IS NOT WHAT THEY HAD
  • 00:06:43.040 --> 00:06:46.070
  • 2.000 YEARS AGO YOU CAN PROVE IT.
  • 00:06:46.100 --> 00:06:48.170
  • (Greg Laurie) THAT IS AMAZING.
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:49.200
  • (Ido Keynan) THAT IS WAY IT WAS
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:51.010
  • PUT TOGETHER. LOOK STRAIGHT AHEAD.
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:54.150
  • THAT IS THE DEAD SEA.
  • 00:06:54.180 --> 00:06:55.120
  • (Greg Laurie) WOW.
  • 00:06:55.150 --> 00:06:56.070
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:07:00.210
  • [swishing metal sound]
  • 00:07:00.240 --> 00:07:06.230
  • IT'S TRUE THAT IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED
  • 00:07:06.260 --> 00:07:08.280
  • THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:10.230
  • BUT LET'S BE HONEST, OVER TIME THIS WORLD
  • 00:07:10.260 --> 00:07:12.170
  • HAS BEEN IN A DOWNWARD SPIRAL.
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:14.120
  • THIS WORLD, AMERICA, IS IN NEED OF A CHANGE;
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:16.250
  • IN NEED OF HELP. IT'S IN NEED OF HOPE.
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:18.250
  • IT WON'T COME FROM A CAPED CRUSADER,
  • 00:07:18.280 --> 00:07:20.220
  • A SUPERHERO OR A MASKED MAN.
  • 00:07:20.250 --> 00:07:22.270
  • THE TRUE CHANGE WILL COME FROM
  • 00:07:23.000 --> 00:07:24.170
  • SOMEONE LIKE YOU AND ME.
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:25.280
  • A WORLD CHANGER IS SOMEONE THAT SEES THE PROBLEMS
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:28.120
  • IN OUR CULTURE AND WANTS TO BRING SOLUTIONS.
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:31.030
  • A WORLD CHANGER IS SOMEONE READY TO LIVE OUT THE

  • CHRISTIAN LIFE AND SHOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BE
  • 00:07:33.100 --> 00:07:35.130
  • A FOLLOWER OF JESUS.
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:36.230
  • A WORLD CHANGER IS SOMEONE WHO IS PREPARED TO BRING
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:38.160
  • THE GOSPEL WITHOUT SHAME TO THOSE
  • 00:07:38.190 --> 00:07:40.050
  • THEY COME INTO CONTACT WITH.
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:41.160
  • A WORLD CHANGER IS SOMEONE WHO WOULD PUT THEIR FAITH
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:43.160
  • INTO ACTION AND TAKE RISKS FOR GOD'S GLORY.
  • 00:07:43.190 --> 00:07:46.180
  • ARE YOU READY TO BE A WORLD CHANGER?
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:52.020
  • LET THE WHOLE WORLD BLESS OUR GOD
  • 00:07:52.050 --> 00:07:54.240
  • AND LOUDLY SING HIS PRAISES.
  • 00:07:54.270 --> 00:07:56.160
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:08:01.210
  • WHEN WE GATHER TOGETHER IN WORSHIP
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:03.210
  • IT GIVES US PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:08:03.240 --> 00:08:05.210
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:10.160
  • IT SHIFTS OUR FOCUS FROM THE THINGS OF THIS EARTH
  • 00:08:10.190 --> 00:08:12.150
  • TO THE HEART OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:08:12.180 --> 00:08:14.110
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:17.270
  • IT REMINDS US OF HIS PROMISES
  • 00:08:18.000 --> 00:08:19.290
  • AND GROUNDS US IN HIS GRACE.
  • 00:08:20.020 --> 00:08:22.050

  • INSIGHT ON THE PEOPLE OF THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:12.210
  • THE SIGNIFICANCE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY IN
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:15.170
  • ISRAEL AS IT RELATES TO BIBLE PROPHESY AND WHY
  • 00:10:15.200 --> 00:10:19.070
  • JEWS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD ARE UPROOTING THEIR
  • 00:10:19.100 --> 00:10:22.080
  • FAMILIES, SELLING THEIR HOMES, AND QUITTING THEIR
  • 00:10:22.110 --> 00:10:24.130
  • JOBS AND MOVING BACK TO THE LAND OF THEIR
  • 00:10:24.160 --> 00:10:27.040
  • ANCESTORS. THE LAND OF THEIR BLOODLINE.
  • 00:10:27.070 --> 00:10:30.160
  • THE LAND OF JESUS.
  • 00:10:30.190 --> 00:10:33.020
  • WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE IN ISRAEL NOW?
  • 00:10:33.050 --> 00:10:34.200
  • YOU WERE BORN WHERE?
  • 00:10:34.230 --> 00:10:35.260
  • I WAS BORN IN THE UNITED
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:36.260
  • STATES IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. SYRACUSE.
  • 00:10:36.290 --> 00:10:39.230
  • I GREW UP IN THE STATES.
  • 00:10:39.260 --> 00:10:40.270
  • MY FATHER WAS ORTHODOX JEWISH.
  • 00:10:41.000 --> 00:10:42.220
  • CAME TO FAITH IN JESUS AS MESSIAH IN 1973.
  • 00:10:42.250 --> 00:10:46.010
  • THOUGHT HE WAS THE FIRST JEW SINCE THE APOSTLE
  • 00:10:46.040 --> 00:10:47.290
  • PAUL WHO BELIEVED THIS.
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:50.010
  • BECAUSE THERE WERE SO FEW.
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:51.090
  • HE NEVER HEARD OF A JEWISH PERSON WHO BELIEVED THAT.
  • 00:10:51.120 --> 00:10:53.050
  • NEVER MET ONE.
  • 00:10:53.080 --> 00:10:54.190
  • AND IN 1973 THERE WEREN'T THAT MANY.
  • 00:10:54.220 --> 00:10:56.200
  • BUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD WAS MOVING.
  • 00:10:56.230 --> 00:10:58.270
  • NOT JUST AMONG JEWISH
  • 00:10:59.000 --> 00:10:59.280
  • PEOPLE BUT THE WHOLE JESUS MOVEMENT.
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:01.160
  • YOU GOT SAVED IN THAT TIME.
  • 00:11:01.190 --> 00:11:02.160
  • YEAH. WOW.
  • 00:11:02.190 --> 00:11:03.270
  • MY PARENTS.
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:04.260
  • I A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER IN 1975.
  • 00:11:04.290 --> 00:11:07.020
  • WHEN ISRAEL BECAME A NATION ON MAY 14, 1948
  • 00:11:07.050 --> 00:11:10.060
  • THERE WERE HOW MANY MESSIANIC BELIEVERS HERE?
  • 00:11:10.090 --> 00:11:12.270
  • MAYBE TWO DOZEN.
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:14.120
  • TWENTY THREE THAT I KNOW OF.
  • 00:11:14.150 --> 00:11:15.150
  • TWENTY FOUR. MAYBE THERE
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:17.200
  • WAS 12 MORE. I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:11:17.230 --> 00:11:18.200
  • TODAY MAYBE APPROXIMATELY HOW MANY?
  • 00:11:18.230 --> 00:11:19.110
  • 15.000.
  • 00:11:19.140 --> 00:11:20.160
  • SEE THAT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A BIG NUMBER BUT
  • 00:11:20.190 --> 00:11:21.290
  • COMPARATIVELY AND CONSIDERING IT IS ISRAEL
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:24.160
  • IT IS A BIG NUMBER.
  • 00:11:24.190 --> 00:11:26.040
  • RIGHT. AND IF YOU GO FROM 23 PEOPLE 68 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:11:26.070 --> 00:11:29.240
  • 23 TO 15.000.
  • 00:11:29.270 --> 00:11:31.120
  • IS IT HARDER FOR SOMEONE WHO IS JEWISH TO BELIEVE
  • 00:11:31.150 --> 00:11:34.050
  • IN JESUS AS MESSIAH THAN IT IS FOR A
  • 00:11:34.080 --> 00:11:37.240
  • GENTILE - A NON-JEW? IS IT A HARDER PROCESS?
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:40.090
  • WELL IT IS A MIRACLE IN ANY CASE.
  • 00:11:40.120 --> 00:11:41.220
  • BUT GOD DOES SAY IN THE SCRIPTURES THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:11:41.250 --> 00:11:43.130
  • A PARTIAL HARDENING.
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:44.270
  • THAT WE HAVE A BLINDNESS.
  • 00:11:45.000 --> 00:11:47.050
  • BECAUSE GOD SENT YESHUA MESSIAH TO US FIRST.
  • 00:11:47.080 --> 00:11:52.130
  • HE CAME TO HIS OWN.
  • 00:11:52.160 --> 00:11:54.170
  • JOHN CHAPTER 1.
  • 00:11:54.200 --> 00:11:55.170
  • HIS OWN RECEIVED HIM NOT.
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:56.110
  • HIS OWN RECEIVED HIM NOT.
  • 00:11:56.140 --> 00:11:57.110
  • WE DIDN'T GET IT. MOST OF US DIDN'T.
  • 00:11:57.140 --> 00:11:59.060
  • OBVIOUSLY A FEW DID.
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:02.020
  • BUT THEN TO PUT HIM WHO GETS IT WHO DID RECEIVE
  • 00:12:02.050 --> 00:12:06.030
  • HIM TO THEM HE GAVE THE RIGHT TO
  • 00:12:06.060 --> 00:12:07.220
  • BECOME CHILDREN OF GOD.
  • 00:12:07.250 --> 00:12:08.130
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:12:08.160 --> 00:12:09.220
  • SO THE GOSPEL WENT FROM ISRAEL TO THE GENTILE WORLD.
  • 00:12:09.250 --> 00:12:12.100
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:13.130
  • MANY JEWS DID COME TO FAITH IN THAT TIME.
  • 00:12:13.160 --> 00:12:15.090
  • BUT NOT THE MAJORITY.
  • 00:12:15.120 --> 00:12:16.230
  • NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE MAJORITY
  • 00:12:16.260 --> 00:12:17.240
  • OH THANK YOU.
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:18.180
  • OH HEY NOW WE ARE TALKING.
  • 00:12:18.210 --> 00:12:19.170
  • THAT LOOKS GOOD.
  • 00:12:19.200 --> 00:12:20.190
  • THANK YOU. TODA RABA.
  • 00:12:20.220 --> 00:12:23.010
  • CHEERS.
  • 00:12:23.040 --> 00:12:23.180
  • CHEERS.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:25.040
  • WELCOME TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:12:25.070 --> 00:12:26.210
  • IT IS FUN TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION HERE.
  • 00:12:26.240 --> 00:12:28.030
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:12:28.060 --> 00:12:29.060
  • AND YOU HAVE CALLED JERUSALEM THE EPICENTER.
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:31.060
  • I HAVE.
  • 00:12:31.090 --> 00:12:32.150
  • WHY?
  • 00:12:32.180 --> 00:12:33.180
  • THE EPICENTER OF WHAT AND WHY THAT WORD?
  • 00:12:33.210 --> 00:12:35.000
  • WELL EPICENTER IS A GEOLOGICAL TERM.
  • 00:12:35.030 --> 00:12:36.230
  • OBVIOUSLY IT IS THE POINT
  • 00:12:36.260 --> 00:12:38.020
  • ABOVE THE BEGINNING OF AN EARTHQUAKE.
  • 00:12:38.050 --> 00:12:39.260
  • I AM USING THAT TERM BECAUSE THIS IS THE CENTER
  • 00:12:39.290 --> 00:12:43.270
  • OF GOD'S PLAN AND PURPOSE FOR THE NATIONS.
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:47.080
  • EZEKIEL 5:5 GOD SAYS, "I SET JERUSALEM AT THE
  • 00:12:47.110 --> 00:12:50.140
  • "CENTER OF THE NATIONS."
  • 00:12:50.170 --> 00:12:51.170
  • THAT'S TRUE.
  • 00:12:51.200 --> 00:12:52.160
  • EZEKIEL 38:14.
  • 00:12:52.190 --> 00:12:56.200
  • I PUT ISRAEL AT THE NAVEL OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:12:56.230 --> 00:12:59.220
  • LITERALLY THE BELLY BUTTON OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:12:59.250 --> 00:13:01.160
  • YEAH. WOW.
  • 00:13:01.190 --> 00:13:02.240
  • AND THEN ACTS 1:8.
  • 00:13:02.270 --> 00:13:04.270
  • THE GOSPEL WILL GO FROM JERUSALEM TO JUDEA TO
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:07.150
  • SAMARIA TO THE VERY ENDS OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:09.040
  • THAT IS TRUE.
  • 00:13:09.070 --> 00:13:10.120
  • SO YOU AND I ARE FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH. RIGHT.
  • 00:13:10.150 --> 00:13:12.110
  • YOU ARE REALLY FROM THE END OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:13:12.140 --> 00:13:13.150
  • YOU ARE FROM CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:13:13.180 --> 00:13:14.180
  • I AM FROM NEW YORK.
  • 00:13:14.210 --> 00:13:16.050
  • BUT THIS IS THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:13:16.080 --> 00:13:17.230
  • THE GOSPEL WENT FROM HERE.
  • 00:13:17.260 --> 00:13:18.270
  • YEAH.
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:19.250
  • NOW IT NEEDS TO COME BACK HERE.
  • 00:13:19.280 --> 00:13:20.270
  • YES.
  • 00:13:21.000 --> 00:13:22.030
  • AND THIS IS YOU KNOW WHEN YOU LOOK AT ALL OF THE
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:23.120
  • PROPHESIES THERE ARE MORE PROPHESIES ABOUT THE
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:25.080
  • FUTURE OF ISRAEL AND THEIR PEOPLE THAN ANY OTHER
  • 00:13:25.110 --> 00:13:27.220
  • NATION IN THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:13:27.250 --> 00:13:28.290
  • AND YOU THINK ABOUT THE CRITICAL ROLE
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:30.280
  • THAT JERUSALEM PLAYS.
  • 00:13:31.010 --> 00:13:32.010
  • I MEAN OF ALL OF THE CITIES IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:13:32.040 --> 00:13:34.100
  • YOU KNOW PARIS AND MOSCOW AND YOU KNOW WASHINGTON, DC
  • 00:13:34.130 --> 00:13:39.190
  • AND YET THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF THIS TINY LITTLE
  • 00:13:39.220 --> 00:13:43.090
  • SLIVER OF LAND CALLED ISRAEL.
  • 00:13:43.120 --> 00:13:45.050
  • AND IN THE TINY LITTLE SLIVER OF LAND THIS LITTLE
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:47.130
  • CITY CALLED JERUSALEM.
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:49.020
  • HERE WE ARE IN THE VERY MIDDLE OF THE EPICENTER.
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:53.080
  • THE TIP OF THE SPHERE IF YOU LIKE YOU KNOW AND IT
  • 00:13:53.110 --> 00:13:55.080
  • IS ALL HAPPENING RIGHT HERE.
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:13:57.050
  • THIS HAS BEEN A CITY
  • 00:13:57.080 --> 00:13:59.010
  • THAT GOD HAS CHOSEN FOR HIMSELF.
  • 00:13:59.040 --> 00:14:00.280
  • THAT IS WHAT HE SAYS.
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:01.280
  • I CHOSE JERUSALEM AS A SOVEREIGN ACT.
  • 00:14:02.010 --> 00:14:03.230
  • HE COULD HAVE CHOSEN TOKYO.
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:04.250
  • HE COULD HAVE CHOSEN COSTA MESA.
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:06.280
  • HE COULD HAVE CHOSEN WHEREVER.
  • 00:14:07.010 --> 00:14:07.290
  • BUT HE CHOSE JERUSALEM TO
  • 00:14:08.020 --> 00:14:10.000
  • BE THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING.
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:11.040
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:14:11.070 --> 00:14:12.060
  • IF I FORGET YOU O JERUSALEM LET MY RIGHT
  • 00:14:12.090 --> 00:14:13.190
  • HAND FORGET HER CUNNING.
  • 00:14:13.220 --> 00:14:15.020
  • IT IS LIKE GOD SAID I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:17.190
  • SO GOD REMEMBERS THIS CITY.
  • 00:14:17.220 --> 00:14:19.100
  • THAT IS THE CITY OF THE PAST.
  • 00:14:19.130 --> 00:14:20.200
  • BUT NOW THE CITY OF THE PRESENT.
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:22.110
  • BUSTLING CITY.
  • 00:14:22.140 --> 00:14:24.000
  • WE HAVE KIND OF THE OLD CITY THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:14:24.030 --> 00:14:25.260
  • WILL OFTEN GO TO.
  • 00:14:25.290 --> 00:14:27.260
  • THE ARAB QUARTER IS THERE.
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:29.220
  • THEN AROUND THAT AREA IS THE WESTERN WALL WHICH THE
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:33.260
  • LOWER PART OF THE ORIGINAL
  • 00:14:33.290 --> 00:14:35.140
  • STONES FROM HEROD'S ERA OR BEFORE.
  • 00:14:35.170 --> 00:14:37.220
  • I THINK HEROD'S ERA.
  • 00:14:37.250 --> 00:14:38.280
  • THEN UP ABOVE YOU SEE THE CRUSADER AND THE VARIOUS
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:41.220
  • GROUPS THAT HAVE BUILT ON THIS WALL.
  • 00:14:41.250 --> 00:14:44.030
  • JEWISH PEOPLE, NOT ONLY JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:45.220
  • BUT PRIMARILY THERE AT THE WALL TAKING
  • 00:14:45.250 --> 00:14:48.070
  • LITTLE SLIPS OF PAPER WITH PRAYERS.
  • 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:50.050
  • WHY IS THAT A HOLY SITE TO THEM?
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:53.030
  • WHAT WE SEE AS THE WESTERN WALL IS A PORTION OF THE
  • 00:14:53.060 --> 00:14:55.120
  • RETAINING WALL THAT WAS BUILT.
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:58.130
  • THE TEMPLE WAS ABOVE IT.
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:14:59.160
  • THERE ARE NO STONES LEFT FROM THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:14:59.190 --> 00:15:02.120
  • JESUS HIMSELF SAID THERE WOULD BE NO STONES LEFT.
  • 00:15:02.150 --> 00:15:04.100
  • THAT IS TRUE.
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.090
  • NOT ONE STONE LEFT UPON ANOTHER.
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:06.060
  • OUT OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:15:06.090 --> 00:15:07.110
  • WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF JERUSALEM IN THE BIBLE?
  • 00:15:07.140 --> 00:15:09.020
  • WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN HERE IN THE FUTURE?
  • 00:15:09.050 --> 00:15:11.140
  • WELL THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS.
  • 00:15:11.170 --> 00:15:12.200
  • FIRST OF ALL.
  • 00:15:12.230 --> 00:15:13.240
  • WE KNOW THAT A THIRD TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT.
  • 00:15:13.270 --> 00:15:18.100
  • THAT IS RIGHT.
  • 00:15:18.130 --> 00:15:19.090
  • WE KNOW THE TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT.
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:20.090
  • THERE WILL BE SACRIFICES.
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:21.170
  • I AM GOING TO EAT BAKLAVA.
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:22.250
  • PLEASE MY FRIEND.
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:23.210
  • ARE YOU GOING TO EAT YOURS?
  • 00:15:23.240 --> 00:15:24.130
  • I MIGHT. WE WILL SEE.
  • 00:15:24.160 --> 00:15:26.060
  • SO A TEMPLE WILL BE BUILT.
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:28.200
  • THEN WE KNOW THAT THE ANTICHRIST, AN
  • 00:15:28.230 --> 00:15:33.270
  • ANTI-MESSIAH FIGURE FROM EUROPEAN ROMAN REBUILT
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:37.130
  • EMPIRE WILL COME AND TAKE OVER.
  • 00:15:37.160 --> 00:15:40.200
  • HE WILL INVADE THE BEAUTIFUL LAND
  • 00:15:40.230 --> 00:15:42.240
  • DANIEL TELLS US.
  • 00:15:42.270 --> 00:15:44.120
  • HE WILL DESECRATE THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:15:44.150 --> 00:15:46.020
  • JESUS TELLS US. DANIEL SAYS IT.
  • 00:15:46.050 --> 00:15:47.160
  • HE WILL SEEM LIKE A GOOD GUY AT FIRST.
  • 00:15:47.190 --> 00:15:48.150
  • HE WILL SEEM LIKE A PEACEMAKER.
  • 00:15:48.180 --> 00:15:50.190
  • HE WILL SEEM LIKE A DIPLOMAT.
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:52.220
  • LIKE FINALLY SOMEBODY HAS COME TO MAKE IT RIGHT.
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:55.080
  • AND REBUILDING THE TEMPLE FOR THE JEWS.
  • 00:15:55.110 --> 00:15:57.030
  • THE TEMPLE WILL PROBABLY HAVE ALREADY BEEN BUILT.
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:16:00.070
  • IT IS POSSIBLE THAT HE IS INVOLVED IN THAT.
  • 00:16:00.100 --> 00:16:01.280
  • BUT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT IT IS ALREADY REBUILT.
  • 00:16:02.010 --> 00:16:04.110
  • PROPHESY SCHOLARS DIFFER ON THAT.
  • 00:16:04.140 --> 00:16:06.020
  • WE KNOW HE DESECRATES IT.
  • 00:16:06.050 --> 00:16:07.120
  • WE KNOW HE WILL DESECRATE IT.
  • 00:16:07.150 --> 00:16:08.270
  • HE WILL IN FACT PROBABLY SET UP HIS THRONE INSIDE
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:11.240
  • THE TEMPLE BECAUSE HE PROCLAIMS HIMSELF TO BE GOD.
  • 00:16:11.270 --> 00:16:15.070
  • WE KNOW THAT DANIEL TELLS US THIS.
  • 00:16:15.100 --> 00:16:18.050
  • PAUL TELLS US THIS THROUGH THE THESSALONIANS.
  • 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:20.000
  • [swishing metal sound]
  • 00:16:20.030 --> 00:16:24.020
  • [nature sounds]
  • 00:16:24.050 --> 00:16:28.140
  • 00:16:28.170 --> 00:17:27.180
  • THIS IS THE DAY THE DAY WHEN LIFE BEGINS.
  • 00:17:27.210 --> 00:17:35.000
  • WELCOME BACK TO GREG LAURIE TV.
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:37.160
  • HERE AGAIN IS PASTOR GREG.
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:40.010
  • THERE IS NOTHING WEIRD ABOUT BIBLE PROPHESY.
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:42.100
  • THESE ARE EXTREME PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:44.000
  • BUT SOMETIMES PEOPLE WILL SEE THAT AND WANT TO SORT
  • 00:17:44.030 --> 00:17:46.190
  • OF THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER.
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:47.240
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:17:47.270 --> 00:17:48.280
  • AND SO A LOT OF THE CHURCH, A LOT OF PASTORS
  • 00:17:49.010 --> 00:17:50.120
  • HAVE SAID LOOK I DON'T WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:52.150
  • THE PROPHESY NUT SO LET'S JUST NOT GO THERE.
  • 00:17:52.180 --> 00:17:54.230
  • WE ARE NOT GOING TO PREACH THIS STUFF.
  • 00:17:54.260 --> 00:17:56.100
  • BUT 27% OF THE SCRIPTURE THAT IS A BIG CHUNK
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:59.000
  • OF CHANGE, RIGHT.
  • 00:17:59.030 --> 00:18:00.060
  • YOU IGNORE THAT AT YOUR PERIL.
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:01.190
  • THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUS THAT GOD WANTS US TO KNOW
  • 00:18:01.220 --> 00:18:03.140
  • ABOUT THE FUTURE.
  • 00:18:03.170 --> 00:18:04.100
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:18:04.130 --> 00:18:05.140
  • AND NOT JUST ABOUT ISRAEL'S FUTURE, NOT JUST
  • 00:18:05.170 --> 00:18:06.200
  • ABOUT JERUSALEM'S FUTURE, OR THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL'S
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:08.260
  • NEIGHBORS OR HER ENEMIES WHOM GOD ALSO LOVES.
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:11.110
  • IT IS ABOUT OUR FUTURE.
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:12.260
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:18:12.290 --> 00:18:14.020
  • IF THE GOD OF THE BIBLE SAID ISRAEL WAS GOING TO
  • 00:18:14.050 --> 00:18:15.040
  • BE REBORN AND EVERYBODY SAID IT WOULDN'T.
  • 00:18:15.070 --> 00:18:16.280
  • BUT IT IS.
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.080
  • WHAT ELSE DOES THAT GOD
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:19.110
  • KNOW THAT WE OUGHT TO LISTEN TO?
  • 00:18:19.140 --> 00:18:21.130
  • LIKE HOW TO HAVE A
  • 00:18:21.160 --> 00:18:22.140
  • PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM. RIGHT.
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:24.260
  • IT IS PROPHESY TO SAY IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN HIM
  • 00:18:24.290 --> 00:18:27.120
  • AND YOU DON'T ACCEPT HIS FORGIVENESS THROUGH CHRIST
  • 00:18:27.150 --> 00:18:30.190
  • YOU WILL SPEND AN ETERNITY
  • 00:18:30.220 --> 00:18:32.010
  • SEPARATED FROM HIM IN HELL.
  • 00:18:32.040 --> 00:18:33.120
  • THAT IS A PROPHESY.
  • 00:18:33.150 --> 00:18:35.050
  • BUT IT IS A VERY PRACTICAL ONE.
  • 00:18:35.080 --> 00:18:36.100
  • YOU EITHER CHOOSE TO FOLLOW OR YOU REJECT HIM.
  • 00:18:36.130 --> 00:18:39.010
  • BUT THAT TELLS US WHAT OUR FUTURE WILL BE.
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:42.130
  • OK. SO THE BIBLE SAYS FOR THOSE THAT LOOK FOR
  • 00:18:42.160 --> 00:18:45.090
  • HIM HE WILL RETURN.
  • 00:18:45.120 --> 00:18:46.260
  • CHRIST IS GOING TO RETURN BUT HE IS GOING TO RETURN
  • 00:18:46.290 --> 00:18:49.150
  • FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR HIM.
  • 00:18:49.180 --> 00:18:51.040
  • THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE STAND ON STREET CORNERS YOU KNOW
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:52.290
  • STARING AT THE SUN LIKE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS.
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:55.170
  • IT MEANS THAT WE LIVE
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:56.150
  • IN ANTICIPATION OF HIS RETURN.
  • 00:18:56.180 --> 00:18:58.180
  • BUT I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE MISUNDERSTAND HOW
  • 00:18:58.210 --> 00:19:00.230
  • THEY ARE TO LIVE IN LIGHT
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:02.020
  • OF THE IMMINENT RETURN OF JESUS.
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:03.280
  • WE TALK ABOUT ALL OF
  • 00:19:04.010 --> 00:19:04.250
  • THESE PROPHESIES BEING FULFILLED.
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:06.110
  • SO SOMEONE IS WATCHING
  • 00:19:06.140 --> 00:19:07.100
  • THIS AND THEY ARE THINKING THIS.
  • 00:19:07.130 --> 00:19:08.220
  • SO WHAT?
  • 00:19:08.250 --> 00:19:10.000
  • NOT LIKE SO WHAT IT DOESN'T MATTER BUT SO
  • 00:19:10.030 --> 00:19:13.120
  • WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO.
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:15.010
  • SO OK. WE BELIEVE THIS.
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:17.060
  • JESUS IS COMING.
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:18.100
  • WHAT SHOULD A PERSON
  • 00:19:18.130 --> 00:19:20.150
  • DO WHO IS A BELIEVER IN JESUS?
  • 00:19:20.180 --> 00:19:22.050
  • WHAT SHOULD THEIR FOCUS BE?
  • 00:19:22.080 --> 00:19:23.220
  • THEIR PRIORITY BE KNOWING THAT HE COULD
  • 00:19:23.250 --> 00:19:25.230
  • COME AT ANY MOMENT.
  • 00:19:25.260 --> 00:19:27.040
  • I THINK THE FACT THAT WE ARE SEEING PROPHESIES COME
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:29.190
  • TRUE IN OUR LIFETIME THAT MANY EVEN OF OUR CHURCH
  • 00:19:29.220 --> 00:19:33.180
  • FATHERS WERE SKEPTICAL AT BEST THAT THEY WOULD
  • 00:19:33.210 --> 00:19:36.180
  • THAT IS ENCOURAGING.
  • 00:19:36.210 --> 00:19:37.220
  • THE FACT THAT ISRAEL EXISTS NOW.
  • 00:19:37.250 --> 00:19:40.210
  • NOT BECAUSE WE ARE A PERFECT NATION.
  • 00:19:40.240 --> 00:19:41.290
  • NOT BECAUSE EVERYTHING HERE IS GOING RIGHT.
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.250
  • BUT BECAUSE GOD SOVEREIGNLY DECIDED THIS
  • 00:19:43.280 --> 00:19:45.280
  • WILL BE A NATION.
  • 00:19:46.010 --> 00:19:47.040
  • BECAUSE I SAID IT WOULD BE AND THESE PROPHESIES ARE
  • 00:19:47.070 --> 00:19:48.240
  • FULFILLED THIS SHOULD GIVE US ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:19:48.270 --> 00:19:50.270
  • GOD WHO IS SOVEREIGN, GOD WHO WROTE THE SCRIPTURES,
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:53.120
  • HE IS MOVING, AND WE ARE DEFINITELY IN THE LAST
  • 00:19:53.150 --> 00:19:55.130
  • DAYS BECAUSE ISRAEL EXISTS.
  • 00:19:55.160 --> 00:19:56.200
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:19:56.230 --> 00:19:57.190
  • OK. NOW THE QUESTION IS SO WHAT?
  • 00:19:57.220 --> 00:19:59.170
  • TO ME THE ANSWER IS WHEN I THINK ABOUT LOOKING FOR
  • 00:19:59.200 --> 00:20:02.290
  • THE RETURN OF CHRIST WHAT I THINK THAT MEANS IS WE
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:06.230
  • LIVE AS THOUGH WE ARE GOING TO SEE IN HIS EYES
  • 00:20:06.260 --> 00:20:11.050
  • THE FACE OF JESUS SOON AND THE QUESTION WOULD BE HOW
  • 00:20:11.080 --> 00:20:13.290
  • DID WE USE OUR TIME?
  • 00:20:14.020 --> 00:20:15.130
  • HOW DID WE INVEST THE TIME THAT WE HAVE KNOWING THAT
  • 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:18.070
  • HIS RETURN WAS GETTING CLOSE BUT NOT KNOWING
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:20.190
  • EXACTLY WHEN.
  • 00:20:20.220 --> 00:20:22.050
  • TO ME THE ANSWER IS THE GREAT COMMISSION.
  • 00:20:22.080 --> 00:20:24.020
  • WHAT IS THE GREAT COMMISSION?
  • 00:20:24.050 --> 00:20:25.020
  • THE GREAT COMMISSION FROM MATTHEW 28.
  • 00:20:25.050 --> 00:20:26.030
  • BY THE WAY I KNOW.
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:27.080
  • SO YOU DON'T THINK I AM THE WORST EVANGELIST.
  • 00:20:27.110 --> 00:20:30.000
  • YOU ARE AN EVANGELIST AND YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:20:30.030 --> 00:20:31.030
  • THE GREAT COMMISSION. GO AHEAD.
  • 00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:33.100
  • 101.
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:34.280
  • SO DEFINE IT FOR US.
  • 00:20:35.010 --> 00:20:36.060
  • ALL AUTHORITY HAS BEEN GIVEN TO JESUS.
  • 00:20:36.090 --> 00:20:38.110
  • ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND EARTH.
  • 00:20:38.140 --> 00:20:39.290
  • THEREFORE HE TELLS US TO GO AND MAKE
  • 00:20:40.020 --> 00:20:41.110
  • DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS.
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:42.170
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:20:42.200 --> 00:20:43.250
  • BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON,
  • 00:20:43.280 --> 00:20:45.210
  • AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:20:45.240 --> 00:20:46.280
  • TEACHING THE DISCIPLES TO
  • 00:20:47.010 --> 00:20:48.240
  • OBEY EVERYTHING HE TAUGHT THEM.
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:50.080
  • NOT JUST BITS AND PIECES BUT THE WHOLE
  • 00:20:50.110 --> 00:20:51.140
  • COUNSEL OF SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:20:51.170 --> 00:20:52.200
  • AND THAT HE WOULD BE WITH
  • 00:20:52.230 --> 00:20:53.240
  • US EVEN TO THE END OF THE AGE.
  • 00:20:53.270 --> 00:20:55.090
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:20:55.120 --> 00:20:56.160
  • THIS MEANS WE NEED TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:58.140
  • JESUS CHRIST TO EVERY JEW, EVERY MUSLIM, EVERY
  • 00:20:58.170 --> 00:21:01.120
  • COMMUNIST, EVERY ATHEIST,
  • 00:21:01.150 --> 00:21:02.190
  • EVERYBODY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
  • 00:21:02.220 --> 00:21:05.020
  • YEAH. WE ARE NOT FAVORING ISRAEL SAYING OH YOU
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:07.130
  • KNOW IT IS ONLY TO THE JEWS.
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:08.230
  • WE LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:08.260 --> 00:21:09.250
  • GOD WANTS US TO. WE LOVE ARAB PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:09.280 --> 00:21:11.230
  • WE LOVE ALL PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:11.260 --> 00:21:13.040
  • EVERYBODY NEEDS THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:21:13.070 --> 00:21:14.150
  • ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:21:14.180 --> 00:21:15.150
  • THE ANSWER IS THE SAME FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:21:15.180 --> 00:21:16.140
  • ABSOLUTELY. BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR A
  • 00:21:16.170 --> 00:21:18.260
  • LONG A TIME THE CHURCH HAS IGNORED.
  • 00:21:18.290 --> 00:21:20.270
  • YEAH IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:21:21.000 --> 00:21:22.020
  • LARGELY IGNORED PREACHING THE GOSPEL TO JEWISH
  • 00:21:22.050 --> 00:21:24.100
  • PEOPLE OR IGNORED
  • 00:21:24.130 --> 00:21:25.120
  • PREACHING TO THE MUSLIM PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:26.180
  • IT IS NOT JUST THAT WE ARE FAILING TO BRING
  • 00:21:26.210 --> 00:21:28.050
  • THE GOSPEL TO JEWS AND MUSLIMS.
  • 00:21:28.080 --> 00:21:29.210
  • WE ARE NOT BRINGING THE GOSPEL IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:21:29.240 --> 00:21:31.160
  • TO ANYONE. THE CHURCH IS SO
  • 00:21:31.190 --> 00:21:34.060
  • BEHIND IN EVANGELISM RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:37.000
  • YOU KNOW HERE IS SOMETHING I HAVE SAID BEFORE IS I
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:39.090
  • HAVE ACTUALLY SAID I THINK TO NOT SHARE THE GOSPEL
  • 00:21:39.120 --> 00:21:42.120
  • CAN POTENTIALLY BE A SIN.
  • 00:21:42.150 --> 00:21:44.090
  • HERE IS WHY?
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:44.250
  • YEAH.
  • 00:21:44.280 --> 00:21:45.270
  • THERE ARE SINS OF COMMISSION AND OMISSION.
  • 00:21:46.000 --> 00:21:47.060
  • A SIN OF COMMISSION IS
  • 00:21:47.090 --> 00:21:48.150
  • DOING WHAT YOU SHOULD NOT DO.
  • 00:21:48.180 --> 00:21:49.240
  • A SIN OF OMISSION IS NOT DOING WHAT
  • 00:21:49.270 --> 00:21:51.150
  • YOU SHOULD DO.
  • 00:21:51.180 --> 00:21:52.070
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:21:52.100 --> 00:21:53.130
  • JAMES SAYS TO HIM THAT KNOWS TO DO GOOD AND DOES
  • 00:21:53.160 --> 00:21:55.020
  • NOT DO IT, TO HIM IT IS SIN.
  • 00:21:55.050 --> 00:21:57.000
  • SO IF I AM WALKING DOWN THE STREET AND THERE IS
  • 00:21:57.030 --> 00:21:58.190
  • A HOUSE ON FIRE.
  • 00:21:58.220 --> 00:22:00.020
  • SOMEONE TELLS ME THERE ARE PEOPLE INSIDE.
  • 00:22:00.050 --> 00:22:02.000
  • MAYBE I WILL BE A HERO AND
  • 00:22:02.030 --> 00:22:03.080
  • RUSH IN AND TRY TO SAVE THEM.
  • 00:22:03.110 --> 00:22:04.230
  • AT THE VERY LEAST I WILL CALL 911.
  • 00:22:04.260 --> 00:22:07.040
  • BUT IF I WALK BY.... THANK YOU.
  • 00:22:07.070 --> 00:22:09.130
  • BUT IF I WALK BY WITH COMPLETE INDIFFERENCE
  • 00:22:09.160 --> 00:22:11.270
  • THAT IS CRIMINAL.
  • 00:22:12.000 --> 00:22:13.140
  • HERE WE KNOW THE GOSPEL.
  • 00:22:13.170 --> 00:22:15.080
  • WE ARE COMMANDED TO SHARE IT.
  • 00:22:15.110 --> 00:22:17.010
  • WHY DO YOU THINK CHRISTIANS ARE
  • 00:22:17.040 --> 00:22:18.190
  • NOT DOING THIS?
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:20.010
  • IT IS A LACK OF LOVE FOR OUR SAVIOR.
  • 00:22:20.040 --> 00:22:21.250
  • YEAH.
  • 00:22:21.280 --> 00:22:23.070
  • JESUS SAID IF YOU LOVE ME YOU WILL OBEY ME.
  • 00:22:23.100 --> 00:22:25.030
  • YEAH.
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:26.120
  • THE MORE WE UNDERSTAND WHO HE IS AND WHAT HE
  • 00:22:26.150 --> 00:22:28.120
  • HAS REALLY DONE FOR US.
  • 00:22:28.150 --> 00:22:29.100
  • YES.
  • 00:22:29.130 --> 00:22:30.160
  • AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED
  • 00:22:30.190 --> 00:22:31.230
  • IF HE DIDN'T DO IT FOR US.
  • 00:22:31.260 --> 00:22:32.260
  • THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:22:32.290 --> 00:22:33.280
  • AND DIDN'T OPEN OUR PARTICULAR EYES TO
  • 00:22:34.010 --> 00:22:35.080
  • UNDERSTANDING IT AND THE FIRES OF HELL, USING THE
  • 00:22:35.110 --> 00:22:37.230
  • FIRE ANALOGY, THIS OUGHT TO COMPEL US.
  • 00:22:37.260 --> 00:22:43.080
  • THANK YOU FOR TAKING A LITTLE TIME TO HAVE
  • 00:22:43.110 --> 00:22:45.100
  • A CUP OF COFFEE.
  • 00:22:45.130 --> 00:22:45.290
  • ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:22:46.020 --> 00:22:46.280
  • YOU DIDN'T EAT ANY OF YOUR BAKLAVA.
  • 00:22:47.010 --> 00:22:47.220
  • WELL I KNOW.
  • 00:22:47.250 --> 00:22:48.190
  • TAKE A BITE OF YOUR BAKLAVA.
  • 00:22:48.220 --> 00:22:49.110
  • I THINK I AM GOING TO...
  • 00:22:49.140 --> 00:22:50.070
  • YOU DON'T WANT IT.
  • 00:22:50.100 --> 00:22:51.120
  • I HAVE HAD A FEW TOO MANY BAKLAVAS SINCE I GOT
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:53.010
  • TO ISRAEL. WHAT CAN I TELL YOU?
  • 00:22:53.040 --> 00:22:54.270
  • WELL THANKS FOR JOINING US.
  • 00:22:55.000 --> 00:22:55.260
  • THANK YOU. GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.
  • 00:22:55.290 --> 00:22:56.220
  • 00:22:56.250 --> 00:22:57.270
  • (Greg Laurie) YOU KNOW THE JEWISH
  • 00:22:58.000 --> 00:22:58.280
  • PEOPLE HAVE AN EXPRESSION THEY USE WHEN
  • 00:22:59.010 --> 00:23:00.030
  • THEY CELEBRATE PASSOVER.
  • 00:23:00.060 --> 00:23:01.220
  • THE EXPRESSION IS NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM.
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:06.130
  • THAT IS THEIR HOPE TO MEET AGAIN IN THE HOLY LAND AND
  • 00:23:06.160 --> 00:23:10.200
  • IN THIS VERY SPECIAL CITY THAT GOD GAVE TO THEM.
  • 00:23:10.230 --> 00:23:14.050
  • IT HAS BEEN OUR PRIVILEGE
  • 00:23:14.080 --> 00:23:15.090
  • TO WALK THE STREETS OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:23:15.120 --> 00:23:17.200
  • TO BREATHE THE AIR.
  • 00:23:17.230 --> 00:23:19.000
  • TO THINK BACK ON WHAT HAPPENED WHEN
  • 00:23:19.030 --> 00:23:21.140
  • JESUS WALKED HERE.
  • 00:23:21.170 --> 00:23:23.100
  • YOU KNOW JERUSALEM IS THE CITY OF OUR PAST, OUR
  • 00:23:23.130 --> 00:23:25.210
  • PRESENT, AND OUR FUTURE.
  • 00:23:25.240 --> 00:23:27.230
  • IT IS A CITY OF OUR PAST BECAUSE WELL SO MANY
  • 00:23:27.260 --> 00:23:30.080
  • BIBLICAL EVENTS HAPPENED HERE.
  • 00:23:30.110 --> 00:23:32.290
  • IT IS THE CITY WHERE JESUS WAS
  • 00:23:33.020 --> 00:23:34.130
  • CRUCIFIED OUTSIDE OF ITS WALLS.
  • 00:23:34.160 --> 00:23:36.280
  • AND IT IS THE CITY
  • 00:23:37.010 --> 00:23:38.020
  • WHERE CHRIST ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD.
  • 00:23:38.050 --> 00:23:40.140
  • BUT IS ALSO THE CITY OF OUR PRESENT.
  • 00:23:40.170 --> 00:23:43.010
  • JERUSALEM IS A FULFILLMENT OF BIBLE PROPHESY.
  • 00:23:43.040 --> 00:23:46.180
  • ON MAY 14, 1948 AGAINST ALL ODDS THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:23:46.210 --> 00:23:51.060
  • RETURNED TO THEIR LAND AND ULTIMATELY GOT CONTROL
  • 00:23:51.090 --> 00:23:54.050
  • OF JERUSALEM AS WELL.
  • 00:23:54.080 --> 00:23:56.020
  • NOW IT IS A MODERN CITY
  • 00:23:56.050 --> 00:23:57.240
  • THAT IS IMPACTING THE WORLD.
  • 00:23:57.270 --> 00:24:00.170
  • BUT IT IS ALSO THE CITY OF OUR FUTURE BECAUSE THE
  • 00:24:00.200 --> 00:24:03.130
  • BIBLE TELLS US THAT PROPHESY WILL BE FULFILLED
  • 00:24:03.160 --> 00:24:06.090
  • IN THIS VERY PLACE.
  • 00:24:06.120 --> 00:24:07.280
  • AN END TIME EVENT WILL HAPPEN AROUND THIS CITY.
  • 00:24:08.010 --> 00:24:11.150
  • NOT PARIS. NOT ROME.
  • 00:24:11.180 --> 00:24:13.070
  • NOT LOS ANGELES.
  • 00:24:13.100 --> 00:24:14.240
  • NOT WASHINGTON DC OR MOSCOW. NO.
  • 00:24:14.270 --> 00:24:19.040
  • THE MAJOR EVENTS OF THE WORLD OF THE END TIMES ARE
  • 00:24:19.070 --> 00:24:21.220
  • GOING TO HAPPEN RIGHT
  • 00:24:21.250 --> 00:24:23.090
  • AROUND THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:24:23.120 --> 00:24:25.190
  • THE CITY OF OUR PAST, OUR PRESENT, AND OUR FUTURE
  • 00:24:25.220 --> 00:24:29.110
  • [swishing metal sound
  • 00:24:29.140 --> 00:24:35.180
  • 00:24:35.210 --> 00:24:36.260
  • LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION.
  • 00:24:36.290 --> 00:24:38.050
  • ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:24:38.080 --> 00:24:39.130
  • I AM NOT ASKING IF YOU ARE A GOOD PERSON OR EVEN
  • 00:24:39.160 --> 00:24:42.020
  • ASKING IF YOU SIMPLY BELIEVE THERE IS A GOD.
  • 00:24:42.050 --> 00:24:44.180
  • I AM ASKING IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:24:44.210 --> 00:24:47.110
  • A TRUE FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:24:47.140 --> 00:24:50.040
  • HAVE YOU TAKEN THE STEP TO GO BEYOND KNOWING THERE IS
  • 00:24:50.070 --> 00:24:52.050
  • A GOD IN YOUR HEAD AND ASKING HIM INTO YOUR HEART
  • 00:24:52.080 --> 00:24:55.290
  • BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT A TRUE CHRISTIAN IS?
  • 00:24:56.020 --> 00:24:57.290
  • SOMEONE WHO NOT ONLY BELIEVES IN JESUS BUT
  • 00:24:58.020 --> 00:25:00.140
  • SOMEONE WHO HAS GIVEN THEIR LIFE OVER TO HIM.
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:03.080
  • BECAUSE JESUS CAN'T BE LORD AT ALL UNTIL
  • 00:25:03.110 --> 00:25:05.150
  • HE IS LORD OF ALL.
  • 00:25:05.180 --> 00:25:07.140
  • AND NOW IF YOU HAVE NOT YET DONE THAT WHY NOT
  • 00:25:07.170 --> 00:25:09.280
  • DO IT RIGHT NOW. IT IS EASY.
  • 00:25:10.010 --> 00:25:12.020
  • YOU JUST NEED TO RECOGNIZE YOU ARE A SINNER WHICH
  • 00:25:12.050 --> 00:25:14.040
  • MEANS YOU HAVE MESSED UP.
  • 00:25:14.070 --> 00:25:15.220
  • YOU HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF GOD'S STANDARD ON HOW HE
  • 00:25:15.250 --> 00:25:17.080
  • WOULD HAVE YOU TO LIVE.
  • 00:25:17.110 --> 00:25:19.060
  • YOU NEED TO BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS
  • 00:25:19.090 --> 00:25:22.000
  • TO PAY THE PENALTY FOR YOUR SIN AND THAT HE ROSE
  • 00:25:22.030 --> 00:25:24.020
  • AGAIN FROM THE DEAD PROVING HE WAS
  • 00:25:24.050 --> 00:25:26.180
  • WHO HE SAID HE WAS.
  • 00:25:26.210 --> 00:25:28.030
  • LASTLY YOU NEED TO TURN FROM YOUR SIN AND PUT YOUR
  • 00:25:28.060 --> 00:25:30.230
  • FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:25:30.260 --> 00:25:32.260
  • AND YOU CAN DO THAT RIGHT NOW BY PRAYING THIS
  • 00:25:32.290 --> 00:25:35.030

  • PEASE FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:25:41.030 --> 00:25:42.200

  • THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME.
  • 00:25:49.110 --> 00:25:50.280
  • FOR FORGIVING ME.

  • YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:26:09.070 --> 00:26:10.020
  • NOW YOU ARE SAVED FROM HELL.
  • 00:26:10.050 --> 00:26:11.180
  • YOU HAVE THE HOPE OF HEAVEN.
  • 00:26:11.210 --> 00:26:12.260
  • THIS IS LITERALLY A DECISION THAT YOU
  • 00:26:12.290 --> 00:26:14.190
  • WILL NEVER REGRET.
  • 00:26:14.220 --> 00:26:16.170
