We’re gonna start
this teaching with a prayer and then dive
into this very, very hard to deal with topic, okay.
So Father, we thank You so much that
even through pain and sorrow, we can see
Your good hand. We thank you, Father,
that in You, there is nothing bad and there’s
no evil, but You actually hate evil, and
all you want is for Your children is to have good
things, because no eye have good things, because no eye has seen, nor ear has
heard, and it didn’t even come to the
mind of anyone the goodness that you have
prepared for your children, so much
good that it’s even hard for us to grasp and understand. And yet,
Father, today, we are going to look into
dark side of this world and try to
understand its origin, try to understand
where are You in this whole picture. So help
us to understand, open the eyes of our
heart to understand the wonders of Your
word, and we ask all of this in Jesus name,
Amen, Amen, amen, everyone. So tomorrow
we are going to visit Yad Vashem, and
originally, I wanted to film this one
there, but God had his way. You know, I
can’t talk about the sovereignty of God, you
know, 70, 80 years ago — or not talk it,
and not accept it — even now, we didn’t
get any filming permit at Yad Vashem,
so we decided to do it here. Actually,
it’s better for the people back home
because now it is in reasonable hour; it’s
in the middle of the night to the
people in the United States, at least. So
we’re going to deal with the topic that
personally, for me, it’s hard and the
reason is because I’m a grandson of Holocaust
survivors. My grandparents from
my mother’s side survived the death
camp of Auschwitz and made it to Israel in
a very tough way, and not before they
were turned all the way to the island of
Cyprus, where my mom was born in another
detention camp, and then they made it to Israel.
And in Israel, on their
arrival, my grandma gave birth to her firstborn
in Israel, who unfortunately died
on his 19th birthday during the War of Attrition with Egyptians, when the
Egyptians basically sunk an Israeli
warship, and he was on board. So the topic
of the Holocaust is probably something
that is touching almost every family
in this country. Most of the Jewish people
around the world have something to do
with the Holocaust, and it’s because
two-thirds of Europe’s Jewry was massacred and
brutally murdered. And it was the most
documented and sophisticated genocide
in the history of planet Earth. And
it’s interesting because while so
many people deny the Holocaust, the
perpetrators actually admit that they did it.
There are landmarks and there are
monuments all across Germany, places
where the Germans themselves admit
that they did those things. One of the
biggest Holocaust memorials is in Berlin.
I was — I happened to be there. Actually,
it’s really three minutes away from
the site of where Hitler’s bunker used to be.
I also was able to go in Germany
to a beautiful suburb of Berlin called Wannsee.
You won’t believe it, but it’s
a villa right on the shores of a beautiful
lake, and over lunch in 1941, they
decided about the final solution for
the Jewish people — over lunch — 15 minutes
— and they decided to kill six million people, evil pure evil. The prophet Habakkuk, Habakkuk in your
language, says, �In Chapter 1, Verse 3,
He says, �Why do you show me iniquity and
cause me to see trouble? For plundering
and violence are before me, and there
is strife and contention arises.� I think we have the
right to ask about evil I think the prophet
felt that he has the right to ask God, �Why
am I seeing all of this? Why are we
surrounded with so much evil that brings so
much pain, so much misery?� And tonight,
we’re gonna touch the very core of — the
very reason for the existence of evil,
because without that, the Nazis would have
not done what they did less than 80 years ago.
And I want to make it very, very
clear to all of you here and all of you back home; Israel was hated since
it was born as a nation during the
Exodus from Egypt. That was the first time
they became a nation. Until then, they
were scattered, they never behaved as a
nation, they didn’t know who their God is,
they didn’t have a constitution, such as
the Word of God, and they were not headed
to their country. Actually, when they
left Egypt, they wanted to go back to Egypt.
It’s nuts! Not something that any
in a nation that is already well-grounded and with a long history would behave.
So yes, we hear about Abraham and
Isaac and Jacob, but only after the slavery
in Egypt and only after they spent
400 years there. God listened to their
crying, and at the appointed time, He
sent Moses and with a clear instructions,
�Tell Pharaoh, �Let my people go.�� And it’s interesting
because Pharaoh hardened his heart.
If you remember first he said, �Okay, yeah,
why don’t you go and take whatever you want
with you and just tell your God to bless
me?� But then he changed his mind and
he wanted to kill them. By the way, they
did nothing wrong. They left by his
permission; they were not to be blamed for
leaving Egypt. He decided to put an
end to all of those plagues — I better let
them go, and yet he ran after them in
order to destroy them and kill them. And you
need to understand something; throughout history,
when people had problem with God, they went after God’s people.
And as a nation later on, they
were attacked by the Amalekites and the Moabites.
And then later on, by the Philistines
— and you can see more — the more and
more and more — and in none of those
cases, Israel did anything wrong to these people.
And in all of those cases,
God made sure that Israel will survive.
If you remember Balaam, that magician that,
you know, I say they called him a prophet, but he was obviously not a
prophet of God, and Balaam himself said,
�How can I curse that which God blessed? I
cannot do that. I’m sorry. I want to bless them. I want to curse them
but a blessing comes out.� And it’s very
interesting because throughout history,
the hatred towards Israel was always based
on the following things: they have a
God that drives us crazy because He lets them win. They have a faith in
one God, while we believe there are many.
Their God cannot be seen. Our God; we can see them.
They have a special day
in which they do nothing. They have a temple in
which there is not even a single statute. They have different food.
They’re not allowed to eat certain
things, different clothing, different festivals. It was always around them being different, and many
times, it was always around them doing
better than the people around them. And so
that was in a way, in the flesh, a legitimate
reason to hate them. Yet what was the
difference between the ancient anti-Semitism
from Egypt all the way throughout the
Middle — even the Middle Ages — all the way to even the 1900s?
What’s the difference in that
anti-Semitism and the one that Hitler suddenly floated in his book, in his
propaganda movies, and in his doctrines? What was it?
Well, let me explain. Hitler
introduced a new, a new thing, introduced a new doctrine.
In his mind, the Jews are not human, but subhuman. You see,
throughout history nobody questioned
them being humans or not, people hated them
for being different humans, but the question
of humanity was always � was at no point there. Hitler is saying,
�They’re not even humans; they’re subhumans.� In
fact, Hitler created a whole propaganda
ministry, and he put Joseph Goebbels to
be the head of that propaganda ministry.
He also appointed Fritz Hippler the
President of the Reich Film Chamber to create
films that will depict the subhuman
nature of the Jewish people, big nose, long fingers, and the
worst is that he would always liken
them to rats, always. He would put short
clips of rats running all around. In fact,
I’ll show you something. I don’t
know if you can see that, but this is —
guy�s, excuse me, this is a Nazi propaganda thing of a
Jew, half a mouse, half a person; I don�t know
if you can see it, half a mouse, half a person.
I don�t know if you can see it, but this is it, guys.
You see? Ratten. Ratten means rats.
And it’s very interesting; I’m
going to show you another picture, and
the article says, �Carnival float
features puppets of grinning Jews, a
rat, and moneybags.� I’ll show it to you
right now so you can see. You see them
with a big nose, and rats behind, and moneybags?
And I want to show you something.
I kind of hid — I don’t know if you can see
that, guys, but there you go. I kind of
hid where it is. Can you guess? Germany?
What is it? Nazis? What is it? This is from yesterday.
This is from yesterday in Belgium.
This is a carnival float of a carnival
that is supported by UNESCO, the UN. This
is not 70, and this is not 80 years ago;
this is this week in Europe, and everybody applauded.
It’s not Germany; it’s Europe, it’s Belgium, it’s in
the city of Aalst, A-A-L-S-T. I’ve been there.
This is Europe today. And the Bible talks about
the fact that the easiest way to attack
God is to go after his people. In fact, Psalm 83; if you read the
continuation of it, it really was fulfilled
in 1948 in the war. But look how it starts.
It says, �Do not keep silent, oh, God
and do not hold Your peace, and do not be still,
oh, God, for behold Your enemies make a
tumult, and those who hate You have
lifted up their head�� the enemies of God
and those who hate God � �and they have
taken crafty counsel against your people
and consulted together against
Your sheltered ones. They have said, �Come,
and let us cut them off from being a nation,
that the name of Israel may be
remembered no more.�� It is a generous spirit
of anti-Semitism, but then, of course,
that Psalm moved on to talk about a specific
war of the Arab countries that tried
to annihilate us in 1948. But this is the
same spirit, the spirit of those who
hate God, the enemies of God that cannot see
God, cannot fight God, so who are they after?
His people. And if you ask yourself,
�Who are His people?� He says, �For the
name of Israel may be remembered no more�
That’s what they wanted. This is why they
went nuts when David Ben-Gurion said, �I hereby declare
the establishment of the state of the
Jews, and it will be called the State of
Israel.� You try to get rid of us, to cut
us off from being a nation�to your face.� The people of Israel is alive.
�Am Yisrael Chai.� So we
understand the hatred toward the Jewish
people, for the most part, has nothing to
do with the Jews as much as its to do
with God preserving the Jews. The way that
God preserves the Jews made everybody
else so angry and jealous; however, let’s not hide
from that reality, and let’s not try to
paint everything in beautiful colors. If we believe that
God is sovereign then why would He allow that?
Where was He? And this is where I need us all to stop
thinking only in terms of Jews and non-Jews, and let’s go back to
the very beginning. Let’s go back to Genesis
1 when the Lord says in Verse 26,
�And God said let Us make man in Our image,
according to Our likeness, and let them
have dominion over the fish of the sea,
over the birds of the air, and over the
cattle, over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creeps on the earth.�
First of all, I love the word, �Let us.� It’s
the plural term. In Hebrew, Elohim, the
word �Elohim,� which means �God� is in the plural case.
The word �Adonai� is in the plural case. Elohim is plural to �Eloah.� Adonai is plural to
�Adoni.� Adoni is �My Lord.� Adonai is the plural.
So you see that from the very
beginning, the Holy Spirit and Jesus
were part of the creation being on
the side of the creator. You understand? They
were part of the process of creation,
being part of the Creator. And when they
say, �Let Us make man in Our image,
according to Our likeness�� man, not any other
thing that they ever created, was the only creature that was created to
be in the likeness of God, in the image of God. Now I have a question for you.
What is God? The Bible says God is what?
Love. His banner over us is what?
Love. Why do you think the Bible says
that God is love? Love cannot exist without God.
And I can prove it to you
because the Bible says already in Chapter
6 of Genesis that �Every thought and
every intention of man’s heart continually
was evil.� There was no love there, and love could only be possible if free will was given. I’m telling you, all
of you — for example, you’re married and
you have a wife, or you’re a father or
mother and you have a child. How do you know
that they love you? What if they are
programmed to say, �I love you. I love you.
I love you.� Will you consider that as true love?
Of course, but how is it that you
feel when out of the blue, out of nowhere,
your little boy says, �Mommy, I love you.� That’s love; nobody
forced him to say it. It’s his free will. And the true essence of love was displayed. God created us in His likeness and
in His image, and if God is love, then our
free will is the key for us to show Him
our love, or else He created robots. God
did not program us to only choose love
because that would not be love to begin with. This is why God says,
�Look, guys, you’ve got free will, but
I want to tell you something: free will
is about choices and I — I can tell you that you
— you will get to a point where you can choose.
Let me tell you what the consequences
of this choice is going to be, and
the consequences of this choice is going
to be, but at the end of the day,
it’s your choice. and we all know the
choice that they — they made. And it’s interesting
because the Bible talks about the ruler of the world from that moment is Satan.
If you really think about it,
think about it for a second, the minute, Satan
started the rebellion, because you know
that Satan started rebelling before man was created.
There was rebellion in
heaven, then there is rebellion on earth, and
then in a way, the rebellion was associated
with Satan, and he became the ruler of the world.
You know John 12:31 says, �Now
is the judgment of this world, now the
ruler of this world will be cast out.� John 14:30 says, �I
will no longer talk much with you for
the ruler of this world is coming, and
he has nothing in me.� John 16:11 says of
judgment, �Because the ruler of this world
is judged.� John, one of the most amazing
Gospels; is using the Greek word �cosmos,�
and in this term, �cosmos� refers to the
human society that is alienated from God
and whose behavior is out of harmony with His will.
And God did not produce this
unrighteousness, this unrighteous
world; it is lying and the power of the wicked one.
1 John 5:19, �Satan and his
wicked spiritual hosts in the heavenly
places act as the invisible world
ruler and they form the Greek word
�cosmocrator� this darkness in Ephesians 6:12. It’s interesting because
when I read — I’m preparing a
message now about the Day of the Lord, and
the Bible talks about the fact that
God is going to judge, in the Day of the Lord, the satanic house
in the heavenlies first, and then the
people on earth that are doing their will. It’s very, very interesting.
Adam and Eve were placed, or actually, they
were paired — of the danger of death if
they ate the fruit, and yet within their
free will, they chose to eat it anyway.
Free will. They were warned not to.
They were told the consequences of it,
yet they decided to. the Bible says in
Romans 5:12, �Therefore just as through one
man, sin entered the world, and death,
through sin — and I mentioned that
because there was no intention in God’s
mind to bring upon the world any death �
�thus death spread to all men because all sinned.
I want you to say, �All sinned.� (�All sinned.�)
and I deliberately, at this point, I’m no longer
talking about Jews and Gentiles because
when we talk about the Holocaust, we
already understood that there is evil, and we
already understood why they come against
Israel and against the Jewish people,
but where did evil come from? Now we know. And the
question that so many people are asking
is: Why does God allow evil? It’s
a good question. Where does evil come from?
Why does evil exist? And how does
God respond to evil? It’s an interesting thing.
First of all, we know that
evil in all of its forms is the result
of the disobedience of God and His laws.
When man decides to disobey, then that’s
when evil starts. And we see that all over.
2nd Peter 2:4, Satan started the rebellion before the creation. Genesis
3, Verses 1-7, Adam and Eve in the garden rebel.
And Romans 5:12. since Adam — and
on to all men. So we see that it started
up there, went down, and it spread to all men.
It’s a viral thing. This is why we
talked about it in Nazareth, Jesus could
have not been born of the seed of man or else he would be
already having sin in him. And he had to be sinless.
Evil has been there since almost
the beginning, and unfortunately, I have bad news; it will be there to the end.
This is why God has to make
new heaven and new earth and bring new
Jerusalem, and everything will be made new.
And by the way, everything will
be restored to the first two chapters of
Genesis because in the first two chapters
of Genesis, there was no temple; there’s no need.
God was there. There was need for so many other things.
God is going to restore everything. And if in Genesis 1,
Verse 1 there was light in this world,
and only on the fourth day God created
the Sun, the moon, and the stars. Who was the light of the world?
Yeshua, Jesus was, and indeed,
the Bible says in Revelation 21 that in
the new Jerusalem, there will be no need
for the sun and the moon and the stars
because the Lord God will illuminate it
and the Lamb, Jesus, will be its menorah. Beautiful!
Now evil today is immoral and
it’s also natural. You have to understand
it’s not just immoral. There’s violence,
there’s immorality and hatred in this world,
and it’s caused by man’s unwillingness
to love and obey God and to love his
neighbor as himself. Remember the whole
essence of the gospel: �Love the Lord with
all of your heart, mind, and soul, and
love your neighbor.� Love! I repeat that. Love is
the essence of God. God is love. Love
cannot exist unless there is free will. In other words, evil
has a ticket to enter, and if you
want God to eliminate evil and not to allow
evil, guess what He will have to not allow also? Ladies and gentlemen,
ignorance and poverty are the
result of sin and not the cause of it. You
have to understand; everybody’s blaming
ignorance and poverty as sin, but
in reality, it’s not the cause of sin. It’s the end result of sin,
and I�m not talking about the poor man; he is a sinner,
and the rich man; he is not. No. I’m talking
about the essence of poverty and the
essence of illness in every shape and
form — by the way, the last time I
checked, the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, was
a billionaire, yet he died from illness.
You know, you know poverty and an illness
are not a, you know, necessarily together.
And not to mention ignorance.
Every crime, every broken home, every
emotional or physical abuse is the result of what?
Pride, lust, selfishness, and anger,
or in one word, sin. Exactly. And we will — I will
talk about it again and again because you
cannot detach the problem of sin even
from the Holocaust. And it’s terrible because
with that, all of this thing is either
someone is guilty of it, or someone is
victimized by it, but there’s always the two sides.
One is guilty, or one is
victimized by it, and they say that, �Hurt men
hurt men.� Romans 6:23, �For the wages of sin
is death.� Sin is the root of evil, and
the wages of sin is death. Death is manifested,
by the way, not only through evil,
excuse me, not only through funerals,
but through evils. It’s amazing. You know I had a
book written by Dr. Henry Morris. In fact, he brought it.
I asked that he will bring it because
it’s an amazing book, and I need to dig in again, again, again.
And in his book, he basically wrote that
after the fall of Adam and Eve in the
garden, we find basically first broken
relationship with God. And the social
breakdown then caused the shame of Adam and
Eve and what they felt, and, of course,
the murder right after — Abel by Cain.
But also he mentioned something that I
don’t think I ever thought about it.
You mentioned that there was ecological break. The difficulty in
childbirth; it was not supposed to be so. The toil to live from
the earth, until the greatest natural
disaster in history, which is what? The flood. I don�t know if you know
but it never rained before the flood.
Everybody looked at Noah; they thought you
must see a shrink. You’re building an ark? What do you mean flood? There’s underground streams.
There is evaporation. There’s a vapor and
that caused the vegetation. That’s it;
we�ve never seen rain before in our lives.
The flood — you know the scientists,
and that’s — in his book — that’s
the Genesis� record. Scientists who wanted
to see what would happen to a planet
that was covered with water. You know what
they came up with? They reached the
conclusion that if any planet would be
covered with water eventually there
will be two frozen poles. Wow! And then they say that the dissolving of that
vapor shield that irrigated the earth
from underground streams will cause
the invasion of new bacteria that resulted
with disease to man, beasts, and plants.
The imbalanced nature has caused
catastrophes since that. Global warming!
Everybody’s, you know, they think that we can
do something about it. We think we’re so big,
like God, we can, you know, fire 50,000
people and shut down so many plants
and we will reduce planet Earth in half of a degree.
What a baloney, and it’s not
only that, I read yesterday, there’s in
Britain, there’s a group of women and a new group that decided that,
�We’re not bringing children to the world
as a protest for climate change.� You understand?
You’re a sinner. Sin brings forth catastrophe, and so
you are saying, �I refuse to bring
children to this evil world.� Have you ever
thought about the source of evil, and
don’t you know that there is a solution for that?
It’s very interesting because
man’s sinfulness led to the flood that led
to the defective planet we have today, very simple.
And so the question is: �Okay,
so in that case, what, or why does
God permit evil to exist,� which is such
a fair question if you really think
about, because who brought the evil to earth?
We did. So we made those wrong
choices; we still do. We bring forth so
much evil, and then we ask, �How do you allow that?� And it’s interesting
because again, I’ll take you back to free
will, and again, I’ll tell you that without free will, man is not
in the image of God. The only thing that
makes man in the image of God is the
fact that he has free will. God designed
us to be in His image and His likeness,
and we have free will. If He would not
give us free will we would be what? Robot,
minions, something else, but not humans.
By the way, people started preferring
robots right now. They’ll do what they
want them to do. I know, and forgive
me if I hurt you; I always do that, I
guess, but forgive me, but a lot of people
prefer, you know, animals over humans
because they can tell them what to do and
there is no free there. But man must be able to glorify God willingly and freely.
That’s what he was designed
for, to glorify God willingly and freely,
and for that, he needs free will. Because the �freely�
and the �willingly� are the �free will.�
And by the way, man is the only creature
that can interact with us, the only one.
It’s very interesting. God could communicate
and so could man. Communication. Dogs don’t talk to
God last time I checked. Well, I know
some people will challenge me and they
say that their dog is praying; they can see that.
That’s fine, but that’s not what
the Bible says. Man could appreciate
beauty just like that. Man was given the
power of free will without which he is
not in the image of God. Man had the power
to be with God in perfect harmony without evil or suffering. He could have had it.
God designed him to have it like that.
All of our body cells, all of
our intellect, all — the way we�re designed
is not a design to continually live
in defective planet. That’s why we die today.
Death is the the way, the natural
way of the body to say, �I cannot continue in these conditions.� We were
not designed to continue in these conditions. But men; although God
designed them for one thing, men chose the opposite.
Man chose to disobey God and
bring evil and suffering into the world.
God gave them a chance to live in a
world without evil or suffering. Man chose
to say, �You know what? That’s fine;
keep your opinion. There’s someone else
here that told us that if we eat from
it, we should — we surely will not die.
We believe him.� I don�t know if you know
that but there’s so many New Age cults that
are saying that Lucifer’s the one who
is bringing light; he�s the �light bringer.�
That’s why they called themselves,
�Illuminati.� Illuminati means the �enlightened
ones.� They’ve seen the light, and the
light is not the light of God. It’s the light of Lucifer.
They say that, by the way.
You ask them; they tell you. They believe
that in the story of Genesis, Satan is the
good guy and God is the bad one. So why did God create man anyway?
God knows everything.
Well, God created man anyway because it
was better than not creating. Oh, thank God for that.
Think about it. You may have some
problematic issues with kids or family
members or parents but still� thank God they�re there.
Think about it. Since he is God, and He makes
no mistakes, and yet He chose to create
man, that means that that was the right choice. He could have not created us.
He could have said, �No.� But He didn�t. He did
it knowing what we’re capable of. And how does God respond to evil?
Well, first of all, I
believe that, and the Bible is full of examples, that unless God
intervenes, we would have destroyed ourselves long ago.
God limits evil. Let’s face it.
He limits the lifespan of a man,
both the evildoers and those who suffer. First, the second — man
is capable of great good. With all due
respect, you know we can still find things
that we can smile about. We can — we can
still do, or we are capable of doing
those things, and I don’t think Satan would
ever want you to smile or be happy, or — what is Satan? He steals joy.
He’s not giving you joy; where God gives you joy. Also, God provided knowledge to men.
Don’t you think so? Today we
can fight diseases, relieve suffering,
and solve problems that�s caused by sin,
and by doing that, we’re fulfilling
Genesis 1:27, taking over the earth. But I think one of
the things that people struggle with
is the fact that God uses evil to teach
men lessons about good. You know Job, you remember,
was a victim of both what? Natural and moral evil?
And yet he’s an example of evil
used to teach and mature one of God’s
sons, and his suffering taught him
to trust God to run the universe. So many
times we think we can do things better,
and it’s not until we hit the bottom,
that we lift up our heads, and we say, �Okay,
you take control.� 2nd Corinthians 12 �Unless I should be
exalted above measure by the abundance of
the revelations, that thorn in the flesh
was given to me, a messenger of Satan
to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.
Concerning this thing, I pleaded
with the Lord three times that it might
depart from me. Therefore, I take
pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in
needs, in persecutions, in distress, for Christ’s sake.
For when I am weak, then I am
strong.� When I am weak, then I am strong
because then He is my strength, not myself and that when I’m not perfect.
I know he perfects me. Interesting.
James 1:2 says, �My brethren, count
it all joy, even when you fall into various
trials.� In other words, trials and
bad things, if we count them in joy,
because we will learn a lot. And I also need to
remind you, and now we’re swinging back
to the Holocaust, God allows evil to exist
but not to win. He answered the problems
of evil once and for all through what?
Through His Son Jesus Christ. He did not — this — He did this not
to pay the penalty due for every — He did
it to pay the penalty due for every sin,
of every person that ever lived. This is
an amazing thing; you think about it. 1 Peter 2:24-25 �He himself bore our
sins in His own body on the tree, that we,
having died to sins might live for
righteousness, by whose stripes you were healed.
For you were like sheep going
astray but have now returned to the Shepherd
and overseer of your souls.� Amazing!
I want to take you back now to Israel.
Look, the Jewish people, they were —
Europe became a big cemetery, six million
of them, huge cemetery, but when the
Allied Forces came to liberate the death
camps, they found some survivors. And
when they found the survivors, the survivors
looked terrible. And there’s a famous
picture — I will never ever forget it
— of survivors that are literally skin
on bones, and they have no hope in their eyes. And that immediately
reminded me of what Ezekiel 37 says, �He
said to me, Son of man, these bones are the
whole house of Israel, their dry
bones, no flesh, skinny but they are alive
because they say, �Our bones are dry; our
hope is lost, and we our self are cut off.�
They believe that God forgot all about them.
They have been cut off. They believe
that there is no more hope. �Therefore, prophesy
and say to them, �Thus says the Lord God;
behold, oh, my people, I will open
your graves and cause you to come up from
your graves, and I will bring you into
the Land of Israel, and then you shall
know that I am the Lord when I have opened
your graves, oh, my people, and brought
you up from your graves. I will put My
Spirit in you, and you shall live, and
I will place you in your own land. Then
you shall know that I the Lord have spoken
it and performed it, says the Lord.� God
says, �You know what? Even when you think you
are dead as a nation, I’m gonna bring you out of that graveyard, and even
when you think I forgot about you, I did not.
In anything when there is no more hope,
there is hope. I am going to perform this,
not anyone else. I’ll do it in such a
way that the world will be in shock.�
I want to tell you something: the Jews survived the
most sophisticated and the most
documented genocide in history against all odds.
The Jews returned back to their
land by sea, by foot, by air, against all odds.
The Hebrew language came back
to life after 2,000 years, against all odds.
No other language was revived after it
was dead for that long. And the land
is thriving after being dead for so long,
against all odds. But it’s not against the promises of God.
And two days ago, the American magazine
�Business Insider� March 2, 2019, ranked Israel is the eighth most powerful country on
Earth after USA, Russia, China, Germany,
UK, France, and Japan. Israel from ashes
of the Holocaust is ranked the eighth
most powerful country on earth, only after
the US, Russia, China, Germany, UK, France, and Japan. All of the above are
nations that are above 100 million people. We’re
barely nine million. All of the above
have no state of war with anyone today. We have since the day
we were born. All of the above have economies that are hundred times
bigger than ours, and look at what God has done. No, God did not change His mind.
He still hates evil. Proverbs
6 says, �Six things the Lord hates,
yes, seven are the abomination to him:
the proud look, a lying tongue, and
hands that shed innocent blood — to
those that are still not understanding
the severity of abortion — a heart
that devises wicked plans, feet that are
swift in running to evil, a false witness
who speaks lies, and one who sows discord
among brethren. God still hates those things.
And by the way, regarding Israel, we will conclude with this.
Malachi 3:6, and I need you to remember that verse.
This verse for me is a life verse.
For you at home and for you here,
Malachi 3:6 says, �For I am the Lord;
I do not change; therefore, O sons of Jacob are not consumed.� They�re still alive in Israel because
I am here, because of Me. When you think I
was not there, I was there to make sure
you’re still alive. I was there, and I’m
still here to make sure that you are not
consumed, O sons of Jacob. so I want all of us
to understand there is a reason for the
hatred towards Israel but it all
starts with evil by itself, where all
men are guilty. And regarding Israel, He is faithful. He is faithful; we’re
back here; Jerusalem is ours. Tomorrow you will
see that Holocaust Memorial, a memorial
of a proud country, strong country, the
eighth most powerful nation on planet
earth, rose from the ashes of the Holocaust.
You’re seeing it tomorrow. You guys
back home; the faithfulness of God because �I am God and I am
the same; I cannot change; therefore, you
are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. Father, we thank You
so much for Your faithfulness and Your
love, even though we deserve death because
of the sin that afflicted every corner
of our life, as individuals, as a
nation, and as human beings in this world.
Forgive us for thinking that we can
fix a planet that we ourselves broke with the pride and
arrogance of trying to replace You and trying to be God. And Father, we ask that
throughout much more evil and much more
pain that we are going to see and
witness in this world, You will always remind
us that You are there, but evil shall
not and will not triumph. You limit it, but You allow it
to exist because without free will,
love will not exist. But God so loved the
world that He gave His only begotten
Son that whosoever believe in Him shall
not perish, but will have eternal life. And
when you will make all things new in
the New Jerusalem, there will be no more
tears, no more pain, and no more sorrow,
but until then, count on You to give
us the strength to rejoice, even in the
pain and sorrow. And when we are weak,
then we are also strong. We thank You
and we bless You, and we ask all of this
in the name of the Holy One of Israel who
will come back to Israel to save Israel. But unfortunately, we know that only the tribulation
will lead to Israel’s salvation,
so we pray for this nation to pray for
their salvation. We pray for their eyes to open.
We pray that you will use us to
provoke them to jealousy so their
eyes will open to see the wonders of your word.
In Jesus� name we pray amen, amen, amen Okay, guys, listen, guys,
I’m gonna turn off the camera shortly
because I’m giving my full attention to my
group here, and I will answer some questions,
but for you guys back home, just so
