Discovering The Jewish Jesus
The Holy Land
God bless you, and Shalom, beloved ones. God's Word tell us this: Behold what manner of love the Father has given unto us that we should be called the children of God and thus we are. God bless you, beloved child of God. I'm gonna take you on a journey today through the land of Israel.
In fact, we're gonna be here through the next several weeks. We're gonna start this journey today on the Mount of Olives. The Mount of Olives is one of the most sacred places in the entire land of Israel.
In fact, there's some deep mysteries here that unfold for us in the Biblical narrative. And I'm gonna be talking about some of these mysteries today. We're gonna begin today in a cemetery.
In fact, it's one of the most important and ancient cemeteries in all of Jerusalem and I'm gonna tell you why on this very important broadcast. Beloved, thank you for tuning in today; I'm excited that you're with me and I want you to hear me today when I say to you, I love you, God bless you and Shalom.
I'm standing on the Mount of Olives right outside Jerusalem. You can see all around me all these grave stones. The reason, beloved ones, there are so many grave stones up here is because Jewish people and Christians alike believe that when Messiah's glory is first manifest on earth and Messiah's coming, of course as Christians we believe it's the second coming.
Jewish people that don't believe in Jesus are still waiting for the first coming. But what we share together is that when Messiah's glory is manifest on earth again, it's gonna first come right here on the Mount of Olives. Listen now to Zechariah, chapter number 14. Hear the Word of God: Behold a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil will be taken from you and will be divided among you.
For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.
This is talking about Armageddon and how the nations of the earth are gonna be gathered against Israel and against the city in Jerusalem, and the destruction that's gonna come here.
