We go back to may of 2014.
It was Jerusalem. I was broadcast live from Israel, I had with Mario, though absolutely amazing honor of our trips were about to go back to Israel would take it Israel is the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire down by calling 866-34-TRUTH paradigm is Dr. Michael Brown is just that I am right here in the Middle East here that on or thoroughly Jewish Thursday broadcast Michael Brown delighted to be with you. You have a question for my guest. REL. Blumenthal, the recall is 866-34-TRUTH 866487884 and up. REL and I met somewhere on planet Earth some years in the past can't quite place where it is, but we we been interacting over dinner of corsets were seven hours ahead of Eastern standard Time here so Mario need your real close to to the mic there but go ahead first greet the folks in Hebrew shalom. The Coulomb all right.
I wanted to go ahead and greet the folks in Japanese and MMS uncle need to. And how about Chinese. That's human.
How right Mario you are on your way with your family, your wife and two precious little children to China next year's schedule to help with the back to Jerusalem, but we'll talk about that in a moment, but how in the world.
Is it that you living here in Israel as our speaking fluent Japanese learning Chinese. Well you conversational beyond the Chinese. How in the world you learn fluent Japanese will understand some of the listeners in the New York area, Connecticut area and from Connecticut actually okay so I grew up in West Hartford, Connecticut, and a reform Jewish family didn't know much about God or Jewish tradition that were you born I was born 1967 okay will months before the Six-Day War. All right. And a you know how observant where we we ate lobster at the Jewish country club on Friday night all right's nudge nudge, say no more. And we when I was young. Then I got interested in spirituality, in particular in Buddhism, arts, and so was it through your synagogue traditions but yet you're looking for something that's right. It started in high school and then in college and ended up going to Japan my junior year in college to study Japanese in Buddhism and Japanese cultural because most of the pole of Buddhism. II know that many Jews as spiritual seekers of going to India and in Hinduism and and I still out, get the appeal of Hindus or having been to India 21 straight years Buddhism in the census more exotic may be harder for Westerner to wrap their mind around the other different concepts entirely.
What drew you into a search reverence for trauma. Buddhism Buddhism is is a child of Hinduism, has the Indian world and the Indian worldview incarnation and reincarnation and karma and the desire to basically leave the world of suffering or somehow disconnect and that's what I would. I was looking for some kind of escape from the turmoil entire lot of intellectual and also mental cyst emotional turmoil in my life is been really going to college at Dakota, Duke University, North Carolina arts unit that you attitude your privilege than that sensed it to be a cultural elite school, but there's turmoil going on. Yes, you go to Japan that's right. What happens in Japan.
Well, I spent my first year there I fell in love with with the Japan studied the language very hard but I had a gift for I was living with a Japanese family and I was picking up the language so quickly that my homestay mother. She looked to me one day and she said Lawrence that's Langston, she said in a previous lifetime.
I think you are Japanese Buddhist monk was she serious, which agreement was more or less my theology. The time was she serious I don't know more or less started okay and I really fell in love Japan was there for 10 months. Then I went back to Duke and I was deep into yoga and meditation. Japan very secular, though yes it is very much so. But yet you were on the spiritual search and finding things to relate to their yeah there's a lot of different things in Japan.
There's a lot of history there and and a lot of Buddhism a lot of seekers. Lot of Western seekers also Japan. I see come back to the states, finish up your degree yes all right still turmoil going on.
Yes, but my I'm becoming somewhat successful in my search for enlightenment. So, yoga, meditation, veterans. I'm getting some peace of mind. Okay, on the one hand, all right.
On the other hand, physically. I started to suffer hustle my legs's digestive problems and started to just have a lot of problems at a young age, but it isn't there. The theory that these types of Eastern practices are holistic and should have a positive effect on body and mind. Yes. And like I said they did. But there's a flip side to it as well, which is itself from above, which is is not from above. All right, so you go back to Japan.
I go back to Japan in 1980, 1990, and I'm in Western Japan way out in the middle of nowhere teaching English and basically come to the end of my Buddhist rope right so in the midst of Buddhism. What would be the spiritual appeal for for those who are true believers in Buddhism because the concepts are different. There is not a clearly defined God for your father God even send concepts even future hope concepts. What's the what's the deep appeal for someone that really thinks this is it. Or maybe that moment when you thought you found it.
What was the nature of the appeal of personal Buddhism is a very is very diverse in its its expression so it's it's hard to sort of pin down exactly with the Buddhism in India.
The Buddhism and Thailand compared to the Buddhism Tibet China Japan can be very very different.
But what most Westerners are attracted to his design a very philosophical original: conformal Buddhism in the appeal is it's an experience it's an experience.
The desire for a kind of almost drug like experience without drug something that was that.
That is supernatural.
That is this piece, this is this something that is not of this world did you ever experience that I did little bit a little bit, but it's very she was very shortly in your city. I've been practicing my breathing sitting in the Lotus form for an hour every morning, and you know I got something happens that was very ephemeral.
You know, was there something where you were trying to empty yourself of self or consciousness yes yes yes it's that mean that you back you go to the old discussion of about six hours.
I mean do you feel as you look at it just the general principle that that really opens a person up to demonic influences that that there is a turning off of defenses or rationality on some level.
Yes, I'm cool for my perspective.
Now, of course. All right, so you're physically getting sicker. Yes and your young men from young women early 20s okay and spiritually.
What's going you you you government is and you want an escape from the turmoil. Now it's happening spiritually I'm I'm also succeeding. But there's a terrible price and succeeding in Zen Buddhism means that you're becoming detached or becoming numb and disconnected from emotional reality. Okay good reality and bad reality that the notice monks practice this so you oh yeah and yet there was something deep, deep in my heart in my soul that was crying out for love and I was still looking for that from from people. But I was totally self-absorbed. In other words, I asked that a relationship with a Japanese young lady who was working with at the same time and inner it was through our relations that I discovered that I was becoming such a cold person. On the one hand, but also still very needy and unable to love and one day I just kinda kinda hit me like a brick that this is raw and online at something is terribly wrong with this path that I'm on and one day I was just out and that was living in the countryside and it was either a nighttime and I was looking up at the stars and I just cried out to God for the first time in my life did you cry out to the God of Abraham L Connecticut. This is how I prayed. I said God I don't know who you are or if you are, but some someone must be behind this incredible universe that I'm looking at and I'm confused and II don't know where I on how I got here help.
That was it was it Abraham that wasn't there was very general. Okay, so a creator something like all right, but in Buddhism you were meditating more than praying.
Of course you know. In Buddhism there is no God.
Right right so so this was now a clear break with Buddhism to do this.
Yes, it was a desperate cry right and break. Did you at that point feel sure that there had to be a God who created everything, no. So that's if you're there. It was yeah it was kind of a stab in the dark God, but it was a stab right but that tells people and and and I just want to say this to my listeners and it we come back right on the other side of the break. You will hear how God saved RL Blumenthal in Japan how it is the goddess connected him with the Church of the East and and how it is. It is lived in Israel. It's a fascinating story, but I just want to say this to you.
You may be in the same place that he was in and you're not even sure if God exists, but you know that that if God does exist, then that is the only hope in answer for you, I encourage you to do the same thing he did trust me, it's completely providential that he and I are sitting. This is now maybe set up your benefit wherever you are, to say, God, if you really there. Make yourself known to me, require for me.
If you really mean it like a little on the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution.
Here again is Dr. Michael Brown. We are coming away live from Jerusalem, Michael Brown.
Thanks so much for joining us on this broadcast 866 that is Jerusalem day here on the tour yesterday.
It was chrysalis flooded the day before Jerusalem day kinds of kids from Jerusalem, for groups related day because the Pope was in the city the day before things were shut down so it would. I've never seen the city. The old city that packed in my life.
On the flipside, it gave you feel would be the more religious feel them to give you feel of the throngs of people coming to Jerusalem to celebrate the three pilgrimage fees every year. My guest today RL Blumenthal to find out about the ministry he's part of in Israel were the key frontline ministries of Israel with dear friends of my go to revive Israel.org revive Israel one word revive Israel.org you can find out about the ministry there, led by my friend and colleague, Austrian trader and one of his senior colleagues. RL Blumenthal is my guess. So RL you gone to Japan came fluent in Japanese immersed yourself in Zen Buddhism.
You're on the spiritual search. Young Jewish man in Japan and and you realize that you're just desensitizing yourself as a human being you're lacking in insert instead of finding some transcendent peace. You are deadening as human being and realizing something was wrong. You're physically sick and and you cry out to God, if he's there, not even thinking the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob at God's greater if you're there asking to reveal himself. What the world happens to you, will I when I cried out that night nothing happened. A within the next six months, I moved to the big city, Tokyo, and met some Christians there. When they found out I was Jewish. They begin to talk to me about Abraham and David and Moses and all these people and I was kind of embarrassed because I knew more about boot is Japanese Buddhism, the most Japanese but I knew so little about the Bible and my own background as a Jew and so I went to the English bookstore. I bought a Bible, the only one they had was a Christian and NIV study Bible. I had enough of a Jewish upbringing to know that I wasn't supposed to be the New Testament that was off-limits to her. So I started reading in the book of Genesis and immediately within days. I I connected my experience and what I prayed while looking at the start with this with the story decreed the creation story November I'd studied in college, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism, all of the Eastern religions, the Upanishads, and in all of the text. When I read Genesis. It was so it just hit me there is nothing like this with authority with authority. There's no story there is no creation story anything even close that even claims the things that it's claiming in the name of God and so I faith was beginning to happen in my in my in my soul to the creator God from from the Bible.
At the same time they invited me to church. It was a little reluctant to go but I had been united been around the spiritual blockade so that so fight that you're there.
Japan studies in Buddhism but going to church or hesitant yet exactly and thus I went to church. Christmas eve or Christmas day 1991, and it was interesting, but as a junior.
I'd been in churches growing up in a most in Catholic churches and women for weddings and soon I was used to. All the statues and ornaments and things and they invited the church of the tribute was just in the basement of a building very nondescript and a Sunday night meeting with a lot of youth in it and moderate contemporary worship music and it was like a rock concert and I was I was just blown away. What is this but as I got to know the people there Japanese, Koreans, Chinese internationals is incredible. People and I had studied the stations that I knew I knew the conflict and the issues between Chinese and Japanese and Korean subjects in here at this church. Everyone was just one big happy family and that really really spoke to him and of course when I asked him what how they all said it's Jesus, it's the crossings issue and I was going these meetings and hearing the message, not just from the book of Genesis.
Yeah, but the whole Bible. And I began to buy. Continue to pray both in my heart quietly and then out loud that God okay I'm ready.
I'm looking I've been looking for the truth.
I've been looking for the ground of reality in my life and I'm seeing it here in the Scriptures. I'm hearing this message about you, sure I'm seeing that that the lives of these people, but I'm a Jew and I know if I believe in Jesus, so I have avoided my parents and… All this, but I said I want the truth.
I want to know if this is real. If Jesus is real. I want to follow and want to know, and a few weeks later, it was actually Pentecost Sunday and in the church calendar. A group from Korea came to do a special outreach at this church in Tokyo and it was at this meeting they did like a musical passion play of the of the gospel. The story of issue of Jesus in both English and Japanese. And as I was watching this play. I wrote something begin like that sort of stone cold heart from Zen Buddhism something just broke when I watched Yeshua suffering being betrayed and I begin to weep. I hadn't cried in such a long time. It was like that is just my heart was just opened up like a like a faucet as I was watching on the stage, the Roman guards issuer was carrying his cross, and the Roman guards whipping him as was I watching this I heard a voice, not with my ears but him. I'm totally in my mind, but out of nowhere he said by his stripes by his wounds you are healed while he was being whipped. That's from many of you know, that's from Isaiah chapter 53. I hadn't read that yet may have heard it. I can't remember but it was just spoken and given to me directly from the Holy Spirit, and I knew that was God speaking and I said very quietly under my breath. I said okay I'm willing.
I don't understand everything you sure you pay the price and I want to finally as I said that I was filled with an electric like an electric pump just filled me up and I was born again. I was to transform in an instant. And again I heard the voice so loud this time that I looked around I thought everyone must be hearing it and he said I am with you and it resounded in my in my mind like a thunderclap art friends this. This is the beginning of the story of the one hand, it's the end of this segment, but this is what you call being born again. This is what you call being born from above. This is what you call new life. This is what you call being a new creation and there's an extraordinary story that follows, I got an hour and 1/2 more to tell that story to continue listening online.

Right now the end of an amazing Torah study more about the chore. Later on it because of the special guest here with me with an absolutely amazing story front out more about the ministry that my guest terribly with those involved with good revive Israel revive Israel.orc all right oriole you get born again tell us the date again when this happened was June 2, 1992 June 2 I connected and you know that's the day you were born again yes all right you had been physically sick man is as a young man it was strange should be experiencing these things. You had been emotionally dull deadwood in certain ways as you were on a search for some type of transcend express transcendent spirituality. In Buddhism you find so instead it's deadening your soul. It it is Japanese, Koreans reached out to you. You see, presentation of the gospel of Yeshua being beaten and crucified.
You come to faith. You know he's really you talk about something like electricity going through you what happens to you. I mean that's all amazing. You hear God's voice never heard his voice before telling you by stripes you were healed. Even though that was in the Bible. If you never heard it before he did know was in the Bible, God tells you he's with you. What actually happens in your life or the immediate results of being born again when that takes place. There were many many things. First, physically. I began to experience in different ways. Healing through people's praying prayers through Bible study what is really well. Had I had these back this I mean I was 25 years old and I could but I could walk. Oops there after 30 minutes. My back was so sore I couldn't walk anymore. I had like Crohn's disease terrible problems in my bowels, and all sorts of things and I got better see some things quickly. Some things took longer but I was experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit of the guy was in a church that was not fantastically charismatic, shall we say, but basically when I would read about something of the experience of people in the Bible with the Holy Spirit, with the power the Holy Spirit, usually within a day or two. Something similar would happen to me and so the Lord was building in a very short time my faith grew a tremendous amount and I was praying for people and so the number one change was just God. He said I am with you, he meant it and so I was not alone. I knew God was so became so real in my life. Secondly, the Bible, I became I've been reading the Bible and studying it, but something that from that night happened where I just wanted it was like I wanted it more than food or drink is pickup but Bible and it would speak to me. I would read and I could see the connections between this book and that book in the Old Testament, New Testament.
It just came alive and became a best friend in an faithful partner in my in in in my life. And did you experience and an enlivening of your emotions you wept at that moment you were born again but did you find your emotions coming alive. Yes, I also went to part of the healing I had to do with some emotional things and some things from my childhood that were totally unknown to me that were like a lot a locked box and through the ministry. Some people gifted in this kind of area certain thinkers unpacked and and the Lord began to minister to that part of my soul, and to what what I'd been trying to run from Hill live in God is what you said it so fascinating here and has not here on the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown voice of more cultural and spiritual revolution.
Here again is Dr. Michael Brown, Tony is right now Brown can your life, 866-34-TRUTH. I'm here with Mario Blumenthal so many Jews have amazing test results of the human beings have amazing testimonies God saving any human being is amazing. Some have more fascinating, unusual stories and orioles is one of them is a young man in the midst of college. She goes over to Japan becomes fluent in Japanese is a spiritual search there in Zen Buddhism goes back after he graduates from college, but he's having a physical breakdown.
He realizes rather than getting closer to spiritual goals is having a spiritual breakdown cries out to God he doesn't know for sure exists and that God meets in in the person of Jesus doubt that here's what's fascinating oriole you mentioned that going to church or starting to realize that Jesus was really the Savior presented a slight problem which was what would your family think this reform Jewish liberal Jewish family born in Connecticut. All right, so are you telling me that your family was not upset with you being into Zen Buddhism and being what's called a a Jew blue but they would be upset if you believe in Jesus himself was Jewish.
Is is that what you're suggesting correct the Mundo okay experiment tell is only about the culture the background. Well, this is you know we we Jewish people have a history with Christianity for the last 2000 years in both positive and negative ways and in a Buddhism and some of these Easter religions are our families can deal with in a way because it's it's it's we don't have a history it's far away it's distant, whereas Christian Christianity is is a little too close to home and even parent. My parents were fourth-generation American suffered in their childhood, from mild forms of anti-Semitism and things like that from Catholic kids and you know all the stuff that they've they've grown up with in our collective memory is Jews in the Christian anti-Semitism and the rabbis of brainwashed us for 2000 years against Jesus right so there's the initial rejection of our leaders of Yeshua and then the church blowing it in many many ways. Driving Jews further away and obscuring who Jesus really well you put it lightly. It's not just that our leaders rejected issue. They've then developed and there is a religion and I love Judaism have studied Judaism, but there's things in Judaism that are not from the Bible are simply reactionary against messianic Christian New Testament claims and so we've suffered from a brainwashing and then of course the church fluent as well.so it we got it from both sides in the midst of Zen Buddhism in Japan did you run into other Jews know not to Japan Japan. The largest number of converts to Buddhism in the West. I have Jewish heritage.
I like to write so Japan is too expensive.
Okay I was in India one time been there. As I mentioned earlier 21 straight years and many Israelis go to India searching for God so I was talking to an older Israeli couple in a maybe in their 40s or 50s that so they were twentysomethings that were over there and I said to them in my biblical he was real strong mammography results so good but I asked them in Heber. So why is it that so many Israelis here come to India looking for God or they said to the answers. All of this very cheap.
Is there that was their mentality.
All right you have RBC had a heart for Japan learning Japanese fluently and you were there. How how how close proximity to the salami where when I was born again. I was in Tokyo that was in the early 90s. That's as close as I came to living but my in the tooth.
I made aliyah I moved Israel, 1998 have been living in in Jerusalem. Since then, but in the from 2000 42,009 I I've spent most of my time in Japan serving as a minister to the Japanese and also teaching a lot throughout Asia and my close really. My closest and most from our fondest Japanese disciple is a young man named Vikas Yoshi Tucker or eCopy is his nickname, and he lived in his wife's hometown is Iraqi city in Fukushima prefecture, about 50 to 50 km with 30 miles south of the Daiichi nuclear reactor and when the tsunami hit in on March 11, 2011. You of course we couldn't believe you're watching what's happening on the Internet and this is my best friend like a son to me living so close we got got in touch with him immediately.
This cell phone service was still working and began to pray and felt very strong that I needed to be there to use.
Be with them to support them. I was newly married about eight months before so it was a challenge for my wife to to release me, but God really spoke to her and gave her confidence and peace to do that and so on March 22 I arrived in Tokyo. We some Christians heads were Colette organizing kind caravans with aid in all kinds of things to get up to Fukushima into the afflicted areas. It was very difficult because the majority of people fleeing from that area, especially in those days because nobody knew what was happening with the radiation in the tsunami it was finished.
So what were you thinking going over there with reports of radiation. I wasn't thinking of trying not to think too much. Okay, thinking God is sending me it's okay I have to be with the these people who I love so much and he's okay you know I Daniel in the in the lion's den and that he can protect me kicking you paint a picture of what the devastation was like will on the coasts. Now you have to look on the IAEA you've all seen it. I hope you can find on the Internet just to see what the ocean coming on inland like that. I've never seen anything like it was like a war zone just to walk around the entire village and to see a car or piece of furniture that was sitting there knowing that it did come from miles away. None of the houses. Let only a few concrete foundations and knowing how many died and were were taken and taken out to see it was very, very dramatically powerful to be there was God working in the midst of it. You always have the mystery why does something happen and then people try to speculate the people with this to the people were that are there's this caused bottom line is, without prophetic revelation. We don't know why things happen like that, but we do know that that God is at work in the midst of it.
Did you witness that yes we saw the tremendous tremendous outpouring of love and faith and help from Christians from all over the world, but especially from Korea, Taiwan and the United States. And so we were staying at this church in downtown walkie which should be it was becoming quickly became the center for for aid for humanitarian aid because the government was paralyzed with the mayor was saying one thing, the Tokyo government government was saying another. But Christians were coming and basically people who who were not afraid to die. Didn't know what was can happen to them, but saying God.
God is with me. I'm going to help were able to help a lot of people and then to see the Chinese from Taiwan Japanese and Koreans worshiping together this church every morning.
It was like a revival meeting.
The presence of the Holy Spirit. While was so rich and the fellowship we had and we would worship every day for a few hours in the morning.
Then we would each get our assignments as different reports were coming in to go out in this venue take this and then of people were arriving from all over Japan. New Christians fluent with the van full of food or rice or some diesel fuel are all kinds of and there were some very powerful experiences and of and in particular prophetic experience that happened to me during that time, which continues to play out today checking Jared.
Let's start and then will finish on the side of the breaker had what happened was this was again were in 2011. I am one morning I'm watching the in worshiping with the Japanese, Koreans and Chinese together knowing their history is assessed as a student of East Asia and the wounds. The history of the war, and as I'm watching them. I suddenly have like what we call an open vision which I'm not a visionary kind of person I more of a preacher teacher type, but I said I it's all this happens and in the split second is to Scriptures company.
First, as is Daniel chapter 9, where Daniel the prophet discovers in the book of Jeremiah that the exile, the Babylonian exile is to be 70 years, and at that point. It's about 55, 56 years into it and he begins to fast and pray to cooperate with God and to God your word. 70 years it's it's were getting near it wasn't clear exactly how that seven years is going to be measured and then the other scripture was Exodus chapter 20 the 10 Commandments and the commitment in the third commandment Second Amendment rights as the sins of the fathers are visited to the children's children and the children's children to the third and fourth generation at the same time as him saying these things. I see a sign like a neon sign I Telus with the outside said come back like a friend visit revive.or her gets the light a fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown.
I on Jerusalem day of the second arrow I give you some interesting facts about your super really so the city of the world with his history. It is the city from which issue ascended into heaven, the city, to which he will return Michael Brown with my special guest Arriola Blumenthal in the second hour really talk about an amazing mission that he's on working with the church of China church of Asia and a back to Jerusalem movement, but right now we we want to go back to Japan. He's there working in the relief effort after the terrible tsunami a few years back.
Terrible tragic loss.
He's there seeing God move worshiping with other believers and out serving and and although he has said of himself is more of a teacher, preacher, then and in a visionary.
He has an open vision.
He sees Daniel nine is Daniel is praying and fasting for the ending of the Babylonian exile which he knows is to be 70 years.
He sees Exodus 20, which speaks of God, visiting the sins of those who hate him. The distributed to the third and fourth generation of the 10 Commandments, like a neon sign. So this is a unique saying for you what's what's the message. What does God show you the neon sign is very simple. It said 1945 – until 2015 and all this came together in a flash and I realized okay 70 years in Daniel and Jeremiah Wright that visiting the sins to the third and fourth generation.
Depending on how you count. A generation is also can be calculated to be about 70 years, and as as all this is being downloaded to me from the Holy Spirit.
I hear the Holy Spirit and the Lord say to me that the time for the fullness of the sin of Japan is coming near an anytime of coming judgment for the end of the judgment cycle exactly an interesting question which were his work is working itself out in some very interesting ways. Exactly what does that mean what's happened since then I began to write about this and to share, especially with Asians and found that since right around that time, all kinds of different people in Christian leaders in those three nations have sensed this urgency to get together that to reconcile to that there's something going on in the spirit. When you talk about wounds.
There's a long history of atrocities between Koreans, Japanese and Chinese. What when I was in China. People talk about the rape of Nanjing horrific suffering but but it's it's been cyclical.
It's been one against another. How is that played itself out. No it hasn't been.
It's primarily were talking about in the last hundred plus years were talking at the sins of Japan, primarily the Japanese colonization of Korea is on been a victim. Yet Korea has been a small power between two big ones, and during's from 1937 on from the beginning of the of World War II in Asia. The Japanese atrocities and brutality throughout East Asia. It's pretty eight were talking are pretty one-way kind of thing so the wounds the challenge is is from the side of the Koreans in the Chinese to forgive and forget. Just like in the challenges for we Jews to forgive and forget the atrocities of World War II and the Holocaust and especially in China and Korea be in South Korea anyway because of it's it's it's been an open country because it's been so much Christianity there's been a lot more progress in that openness towards Japan and a kind of forgiveness and reconciliation wears communist China because of the communist totalitarian one-party system is nothing quite like communist propaganda in its disorder. Total black-and-white way of viewing the world and so we need in China. You know I do know you you stub your toe on the table with the Japanese are at fault. Your mother died in a plane. The Japanese it's gone so far in the education is so one-sided outside a little sore once rising China having my hair cut a little, maybe nine or 10-year-old schoolgirl walks in she was related to the owner. She looks at me, I'm kind of estranging on my white skin and everything and she starts talking, I speak a little Chinese at this point and I was living in Japan and she said where you found swelling from Israel. I live in Japan and she says Japan, she says in Chinese.
I hate the Japanese. With this venom from your from Israel and you're not on occasion, but she hates the fact that his effort is a reminder. Yeah, I looked at her and everyone in the room is kind of embarrassed a little bit you know and citrus it. Have you ever met a Japanese person she didn't know ice will how do you know you hate them so much and she looks for a few seconds and then she said because I'm Chinese. While while, and that is very symbolic. A whole identity and history and collective narrative that is in the Japanese did a lot of bad things. Don't get me yes I understand but this is the date the Chinese just it's a big one extraordinaire now in the second hour. Almost at a time here in the second hour really talk about your mission to China uprooting your family wife born in Israel you too little children who I met tonight going to China with an amazing mission but 30 seconds is God moving to Japan are Japanese coming to the war.
Yes. Would something is happening. There is a remnant in Japan if you know the gospel is had a tough time in Japan, but there is a passion many different people from around the world have been in Japan recently sent.
There's a fire in it and a passion in Japan among the young people that they've never seen before and it's getting close to this time where God wants to do something in Japan, the collective sin 70 years, the fulfillment for this time is coming and people are sensing I'm to be at a conference this summer in Okinawa in southern Japan between Chinese, Japanese and Koreans praying for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Chinese are getting as their coming and turning towards Jerusalem.

I was broadcast live from his with Mario all absolutely honor of our trips were about to go back to Israel would take it Israel file the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the minor fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown way live from day one more chore day before heading back to the states and God willing goes according to plan to be flying back into the states from Tel Aviv, so I don't know it's from the time I leave to the time I arrived maybe 20 something hours and the plan is to do live radio on Friday after fly back in from Israel.
There couple reasons for doing the one I love doing live radio be with all of you and to I have to stay up anyway if I sleep through the afternoon. I'll be up all night so this your phone calls and great lively questions will help keep me invigorated on Friday my students used to love my classes when I travel back from overseas in Pensacola. The cult of jetlagged classes because I would go off on a tangent and never come back.
But with your phone calls and everything will work.
We will have a great time.
Listen, if you've not been to my Facebook page, yet today please go there. That's asked Dr. Brown AES Kd or Brett if you haven't liked the page the fan page.
The make sure you do it but go there as soon as you can. There's a graphic I put up a couple of hours ago of anti-Semitic images. I mean real, horrific, ugly, anti-Semitic images from from Germany Holocaust days and today even though Germany actively fights against anti-Semitism shocking to see what's there and then just posted this moments ago. Watch how anti-Israel propagandists manipulate and abuse statements made by Nelson Mandela.
It's it's a YouTube clip to watch that it will open your eyes, but before I get back to my special guest RAL Blumenthal and I haven't taken any calls. He would try to get a call or have anyone call because of focused on this guest with an amazing story. I just want to alert you to the realities of anti-Semitism for for one moment and Joey just grab these clips for me. I want you to hear Aaron Klein. He's he's talking about running into he's he's in Annapolis in 2007 and in the block talk refugee camp and he's he's talking to a young man so so Palestinian is estimating seven or eight years old clips number 17 and 18.
I just want you to hear this and then I want to join again. My guest aria Blumenthal with amazing stories about the back to Jerusalem. Movement in the church in China. Clip number 17, I saw an 80, a boy, probably eight, seven, eight years old nine years old so I went up to him with Ali.
I introduce myself and I said hi. I'm a Jew and he started cracking up. He started laughing so I answered why you laughing. I explained to be obviously I'm kidding I'm not in use it or not, I'm a Jew. He said you're not a Jew and started laughing again.
So I said what so funny how, what, why can I be a Jew so he looked at me dead straight completely serious.
This eight-year-old nine-year-old kid and he told me because Jews he said look either like pigs or monkeys. He said that a lot turned the Jews into pigs and monkeys so they look either like a pig or a monkey right now.
You might find that hard to believe but there are people who believe that anyone can be brainwashed any group any culture can be brainwashed. This is some of what has to be overcome in the midst of peace talks and things like that that there is a whole Lotta propaganda and crazy stuff out there that people believe and that is taught actively in certain Islamic circles number 18 Eric Klein investigative reporter radio host journalist. He is talking about his experience could number 18 so I was like okay all right, but what would you do if you met a Jew so he turned to me and he said what we would kill him.
So now I asked them why in the world. Where did you learn where on earth did you learn that Jews actually look at who he truly really believed I so where do you learn the Jews look like pigs and monkeys. So he told me from his teacher. He I we find out of Corsica's United Nations run school in the Palestinian refugee camps is that fasted the UN run school, but the Palestinian teacher teaching radical crazy things about the Jewish people. My guest aria Blumenthal saved while searching in Zen Buddhism as a young Jewish man in Japan fluent in Japanese now getting stronger and stronger in Chinese oriole some years ago I heard about this amazing back to Jerusalem. Movement Taking Pl. in China where Christians who would suffered much in the underground church basically said hey what what can anyone else do to us that hasn't been done to us already and they had this vision out the gospel started in Jerusalem. It's got to go back to Jerusalem so they were going to go through get believe God's ways to get out of China and then evangelize the Hindu world the Buddhist world and come back to that… As we get hit him, the world Muslim world and then come back to Jerusalem. They had this vision did they have an understanding of what it was all about. In terms of Israel Jerusalem Jewish roots of the faith.
No, they didn't back to do some vision actually started way back in the 20s.
A during a very tumultuous time in China and handful of Chinese believers have this understanding, you just explained that the gospel had gone for the most part West from Israel had gone into Europe then crossed to North America from North America.
It came primarily also with some European influence to East Asia and they saw this huge land Asia and all the unreached peoples in the Hindus and Muslims, even in western China and they went and actually try began to bring the gospel into Western China into the most part of that but were stopped because of the beginning there were the Civil War in China and in the communist takeover and this has been this vision is been reborn. Essentially, the last a generation in the context of this incredible the largest revival of Christian faith in the history of the world in the most unlikely of circumstances in Maoist Communist China where it was terribly persecuted and were talking about 80 million 100 million believers today. Nobody really knows, but many of them with this desire.
This desire to bring the gospel to these unreached peoples and now as especially the last decade as as China has opened up more and more as Chinese have more means also to travel were seeing huge numbers of Chinese Christian tourists coming to Israel coming to Jerusalem, connecting with our ministry and many other ministries, local messianic Jews beginning to understand some of the dynamics of God's restoration of Israel, physically and spiritually in our time and what that means for the gospel. That means for for Christian history. All right what went on. I have taught in Asia on anti-Semitism in church history. When I've taught it in India left taught in Korea some other settings.
Even though there may be a theology that is replacement theology mentioned in Korea that was inherited from that stream of Presbyterianism in and things like that that they received over hundred years ago. I have followed consistently. They were shocked to hear about anti-Semitism in church history. I remember the translator of our hands or stay with bloodwork. The Chinese translation wrote to me and saying I'm I'm translating your book screaming and wailing and sobbing and people are shocked because a lot of anti-Semitism in church history has kind of an Anglo background. A lot of it happens in European settings and I know it's broader than that, but that's one thing to not have that history of anti-Semitism or persecution of Jews in the same way. But where in the world did they get a burden for Israel. The Jewish people are aiming it seems to be something supernatural with the Holy Spirit's done. Yes, and their simple answer to that is some it's written in the Bible read Romans 910 11 that's what they were doing just reading that reading the prophecies and it was very clear to them became very clear to them that God has a plan for Israel.
The restoration of the nation, both physically and spiritually in the gospel has significance for them as Christians number one number two I find that the message of Romans nine, 10, 11, and of the one new man in Ephesians 2 and three, which I do a lot of teaching on his much stress at its intuitively clicks with them. They understand the message because these people, the Chinese, Korean, Japanese, etc. still have a very strong sense of their ethnic, tribal identity, and that's really the biblical worldview that there was that those letters and books are written into not a modern, pluralistic serve American melting pot, individualistic, individualist, which has many wonderful things about it, but of course it doesn't. We don't and as Americans.
One of the strong tribal identity Jew I'm Jew and Gentile in this Chinese the Weaver hyphenated identity and all that pretty but it's not the same and so they very it's very easy for the Asians.
December it is rarely Jewish church. Of course, the light goes on for their survival. As I was there natural, haven't said they had their own struggles with trying to make visualize their own version not not a Western executives of the resident all right Orioles honors which I tell you why number by the Expo line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown your voice is more cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown is a right now. Michael Brown delighted to be with you. You know that in terms of density of population. Jerusalem is the most densely populated city in Jerusalem with 815,000 people, 63% of the residents are classified as Jewish and other than 300,100 as Arab and it's it's a melting pot of cultures it's unique in it's so so many ways. I was just looking at some stats here how many archaeological sites.
Yet we just the wrong here we go over 2000 archaeological sites. I mean it's it's just extruding more than 60 museums in Jerusalem of 30 annual festivals in the interest of the most in all of Israel and on and on. Just an amazing tour we've had II can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations for tour group in many ways. Some, stunned by how much is been done on the weekend and the value of I was just telling folks with me that I'm always so concerned tour director about folks finances as you give to our ministry. Always thinking about your money being used properly and the salaries of our team being of being modest in the funds going to outreach and to touch lives and so on and having folks going to tour with me. I was thinking the same thing I wanted to be worthwhile for them and and I personally am amazed at how much was done and how much value was in its electronic sell you on it it's it's finishing up and one more day to study how thrilled I am one of the great things about being here.
Israel is there amazing folks with amazing stories that God has brought here from around the world. Many being sent out around the world including my guest oriole Blumenthal the website of the ministry. He is involved with revived Israel.org that's one word revived Israel.org led by my longtime friend and colleague Asher in trader, you want great insights and the word great spiritual insights great insights miserable every week. That is a great website to go to and sign up to get emails oriole Blumenthal saved in Japan as a young Jewish man seeking spirituality save that of Zen Buddhism now call to China along the way you have gone back to school. You picked up a degree from Yale Divinity school of who are the primary profs that you studied with theory, Yale, Brevard Childs okay Leander Keck and a few others right so very Childs had an extraordinary grasp of Scripture and saw what we would call intertextuality held different parts of the Bible played off of other parts of the Bible and there was a consciousness of biblical authors quoting themes, etc. where did he stand on Israel today or in terms of replacement theology was an Old Testament scholar, but I wonder if any of these things came up in any of his lectures. I don't remember them coming up. But I think he was.
I think he believed in a restoration of Israel and and were there profs that you studied with at Yale that were replacement theology and their orientation, or they didn't see any purpose to monitor Israel because they didn't believe in the literal Scriptures. Yes, that's simple answer. All right, back to Jerusalem movement in China would you say that this is something widespread among the Chinese believers. I know it's a diverse and vast country and and you have the house churches that so-called underground church than the three self church, you have a major division there between Catholic and Protestant in China. But it is just a tiny tiny tiny remnant that's got us back to Jerusalem, vision, or is it something larger than that. Will it all depends on how how one defines that the back to Jerusalem, movement, and that is something that's also changing, and is becoming more fluid. In other words, 20, 30 years ago it was it was this evangelism and missions to the unreached. The Muslims, the Buddhism Buddhist etc. back to Jerusalem with kind of a vague sense that something was gonna happen there and and Jesus would come back what's happened is that as again as is China's "people are coming here as we are going there and is their understanding the world. Veterans different trends in missions and kind and those kinds of things. There is a whole certain other dimensions at this the is is common orientation. In other words, this the modern revival in China happened one of the surprising things that happened with really precious little influence from precious little influence from the outside from Western denominations, Western Christianity, and so as the Chinese are developing the Christianity is growing so fast in China and it's affecting so many areas of society they're looking for roots. They're looking for what what what what is this Christian got the Bible, where does it come from, and because this in this revival is so indigenous in China. There's are afraid to go well with him if this is Israel is a Jewish there and there don't feel threatened by Israel, the same way that they have felt threatened by the West throughout modern history.
And so there's just huge numbers of Chinese Christians who are just very open. There is even in secular among secular Chinese and academics. There is a fascination with Jewish studies in Jewish culture there is not Yale yet institute opening up books being written. A lot of it is is is how to get rich quickly, like the Jews sorta stuff out how how can we make a few bucks so as communism becomes increase the capitalistic there noticing that the Jews somehow do well in the small vehicle they done well, but it but it it goes from that to just to Christians with a very sincere interest in the Jewish roots of the faith and understanding the Bible in Hebrew. I have friends who are teaching Hebrew biblical in modern Hebrew to check ethical discipleship program to young Chinese students. We were there teaching a few years ago so if you if you phrase it that if you understand the back to Jerusalem a little bit wider. Yeah, it really is all over China, not just in the Christian world there is this incredible where we just know while you've been here a week ago, the company that most represents Zionist Israel in agriculture and the cube would seem to nova our dairy company okay.
Our country was built on the on this company. The Chinese bought it.
It's now Chinese owned lock II grabbed a quick lunch today at at an aroma coffee shop. I don't drink that never been a coffee drinker, but aroma put Starbucks out of SSI Crystal using the Starbucks is their God of Israel because aroma coffee was just not just aroma brothers, but others put about a business, so the Israelis get to figure out a way that do well so this Chinese counsel does that unrelated thing in terms of industry, and so on productivity.
China's associate all right.

Now you're married, you have two little children. It really is a very very different culture and drugs are being sent by revival Israel to find out more about that ministry friends to revive Israel.org, what, what's your what your mission and what's it got to do with Ephesians 2 in the teaching about one new man well when I first met Allea when I emigrated to Israel, 1998 I was you know I'm a Jew above come home to Jerusalem after 2000 years I was on cloud nine. I didn't think I thought my travels were finished. You know, and after a few months of studying Hebrew and being a Jewish: Israeli culture and everything. I took a time of prayer and fasting just to spend some time with the Lord in an as I was doing. I got to this place of listening and just waiting on God and thought there's some Scripture you know that just connecting with God and sudden I heard go to China. I thought, get behind me Satan.
That was my first thought he had for many years now since trying to get rid of messianic Jews from generously areas of Delta don't believe juristic come to Jerusalem comes back to Israel. There's a small presents are needed at all. And all this helmet hat.
How was a 1990, 1998 and my first three months and I thought okay life I've been a believer for six years and I've learned about spiritual things. There's only three sources for all such messages and thoughts in the universe and what their it's either God, Satan or just human flesh in my own ideas. I knew it wasn't my idea is okay Lord, if this is you, I wrote it down in my journal I knew from experience that he would confirm it and within three or four weeks I had several sort of bizarre divine encounters with missionaries.
Most of the Koreans working either in North Korea or China, all of them invited me had said God gave me your name. I heard about your oriole Blumenthal.
Please come to China with us while is it okay that it began them so is this calling from God.
Two years ago I started I went back to Hebrew University. I am doing a Masters degree in China studies focusing on this modern Christian movement in China and especially the back to Jerusalem movement so I'm going there. I like I've learned to read read Chinese pretty well because of my background in Japanese really but to speak and let my speaking and listening as Britt is pretty poor private gifting language and so I want to go there for a few years and really get a handle on the spoken language so that I can be a bridge between the body of Messiah. Here the messianic choose the remnant and what is the largest church or national church in in the history of Christianity or any agenda, the most rapid growth of the gospel among people in any nation at any time in church history that ever happens under the fires of Maoist communism, persecution, hardship, difficulty when missionaries had to flee past and cut China was close. There was the fear that everything would be lost when China opens up again. This time it's the greatest revival in insider history trades. It's God who does the God doing impossible things, which is what fuels my fires of faith every day knowing without any question or causing to save her people is having every Jew living through history today but that'll be a national turning all call you so early, Eva Shah, in assessing that Romans chapter 11 verse 25 and 26 this is the salvation of Israel depends upon the fullness of the nation's I will talk I will talk about like there's a lot of fullness in China.
My first experience in Korea back to China with oriole Blumenthal. The website revive Israel.for the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown back to Yahoo my guest oriole Blumenthal lived in Japan as regards save now on his way to China with his family plans to be there next year.
Work with the church in China about the back to Jerusalem, movement, and the one new man concept and of other things that the Lord setting up to do that RL will tell you very quickly something very interesting. After the meeting I spoke last night at the prayer tower. The per Terrace in Jerusalem led by some of our grads and when I spoke I I had a young man come up to me afterwards and he wanted me to know that when I spoke in Korea the first time in ministry there clubhouse around 1990.
That's when he got born again and that's when God gave him a supernatural burden for Israel. When he got saved as a Korea and now he serves in Israel is a Christian serving their my very first time in in Korea, so been there a dozen times week we get an and you nonexhaustive the jet lag to the time change and all that so conk out go to sleep and early in the morning. They waking up clockwise around the suburbs of Seoul oriole where were way out of the main city.
Everything is in Korea but I happened to notice one thing that had to work pizza on Obama on the store so anyway wake me early, call we have to go to trickle church what you mean the master teacher until tomorrow Nono we will visit this one famous mega churches is my one time to do it in a 20,000 people per meeting, eight meetings every Sunday at and so go there.
I am really out that we go to another service after preach ever been so tired okay I preach that we go out to eat and they say Rev. Brown what are you discerning about Korea I said I'm so tired I'm not the story I'll start the starting tomorrow because I was going to be speaking literally for meetings all day, all night, every other employee I did 25 meetings in seven days. When I was there.
Okay so so I I go to sleep and the try to wake me in the afternoon till, we have to eat out, 6 o'clock; 8 o'clock. Dr. Brown, Dr. Brown, you gotta get up now if you want to eat so this is where you want to go ice so simply sit pizza so we walked to the place it's close, but the guy says there's another place a few blocks away. We never would've found it obscure. Turn your turn their turn there. So my Korean translator very surprised = it's not like them to just give tell you there's another place open in the area so we sit down therefore of us in their career translated me and another couple man and woman there and they're not Korea thereof is not Asian and were sitting there and all of a sudden I realize there Israelis salt written in the suburbs the outskirts of Seoul. My first trip there.
Israelis, by the way, I had sovereign encounters with Israelis or Orthodox rabbis. Every trip to Korea.
The first five times. Basically explored.
That's a whole other story. All right, when I'm in an argument that you Jewish or you know this one about about the woman who goes to India to to a group yeah I am a school of cardiac because of the mountain motion come home. You know that my brother died and made our audience doesn't what outfit that maybe they will get to it all right but you get the price night.
Yeah, I heard Sheldon and it was the Paul but same synthetic art so so II look at them and I say to them, and he for what you doing here and think of the typical Israeli answer of claim pizza reading pizza so I said of their many Israelis are now I'm absolutely stunned and right then the Holy Spirit spoke to me that he's raised up the Korean church one for the salvation of Korea and to to bless the nations but three to pray for the salvation of Israel because I work with Koreans and American. I knew nobody price liked me by the hour that the perseverance of the fervor they have a 6 AM prayer meeting and then early prayer meeting at 430 and I read the six Avenue is light. Other's. Anyway, I had these extraordinary encounters and I felt this very very special connection with the church of Korea and and my first trip to China in November. I end up with an official government building with with major government offices. I felt led to stand and pronounce the Priestly Blessing with deep roots. They let me do, but my knowledge of what's happening there in my connection is a Jew is very very minor. Tell me what you see is the importance of the union of of the church of Asia with the Jewish people or their role in the salvation of Israel. What's it all about. From your perspective, oriole well first of all, you have to understand that what's happening in China. The scale of it makes what you've seen in Korea look like kindergarten terms of the numbers in the scope of the numbers the dedication. The devotion also in prayer. And we, along with that from this real strong foundation of Jerusalem and back to Jerusalem and and love for Israel and prayer for Israel so in China is deleted. China is the central kingdom is that the Chinese character for the name of China made its 1.3 billion people. It's the biggest people grew and it's huge and always has been, and so what you everything you sense that in Korea for example is applicable and then some for China as well.
But there's also particular history here and shared history and culture between China, Korea and Japan and this for part of. I was sharing about before the vision of the 70 years in the reconciliation and the sin of Japan coming to its fullness.
There's a real sense growing that without Japan without something significant without a great breakthrough in Japan that that whatever China's destiny is. This is one of things I've been preaching there also is that whatever their destiny is for world missions and for the restoration of Israel, it won't come to it to its fullness without the Japanese white why the Japanese in this ministry talked about the of the first hour believed tremendous hostility and pain in the Japanese inflicting all kinds of cruelties on the Chinese people and by the way, I'm not saying any of this to say anything negative but to set up the positive.
What why the importance will universal. Japan is a big nation is 126 million people. It is one of the leaders of course of of Asia economically and culturally in many ways but again, there's this shared history. The peoples of East Asia, especially China and Korea and Japan have a real shared destiny and in history and there's just something that they were singing worsening groups were sitting Koreans. There's a Korean leader, Kim Lyons documentary film director who gets revelation about Israel baptism in the holy along with the baptism the Holy Spirit about 10 years ago in the entity it starts to see the Scriptures one new man and go to Israel had insulted some interviews for him freely from one of his movies boxers to director Kim's actually that you may be the other than their letter gives a large scale failure. And when he gets the Lord speaks to us is okay before you go and be one new man with Israel go to Japan with the Japanese first and the sink should this happen with Chinese leaders as well. This sense that okay God is this calling for us. There's been such good such power and strength and money in our church is not, but week without the Japanese who have been our historic enemy and persecutors without reconciling without seeing breakthrough for them without loving them.
I sometimes joke when I when I teach in the Chinese house church with a strong back to Jerusalem. Vision I say just for a moment, turn your back to Jerusalem.
If eternal hundred and 80° from facing Jerusalem in China you face east towards Japan and I remind them of this is to remind them of that. There's 100 and there's a mission field that they've never there'll think about because they are looking to Israel looking West looking into Asia and God has. I've seen this that because of the tremendous sin and and destruction and pain. It's like God, is it okay for the last seven years. He said the Chinese and the Koreans you can you can do everything world missions and prancer not think about Japan but in this season, easing no longer know you've got is bringing it back. It's painful, you gotta deal with it. You need to be one with him. You need to love and pray for the salvation of Japan. I just want to say one very quick thing about Japan. You've lived there have deep connections minor are much been there one time, but this is a very deep in my heart at our school of ministry in Pensacola we had at the height of his 1200 full-time students from over 30 nations and one week as the students were returning after break. We had our chapel service and we would have extended chapel every day for the first week of this is in the midst of the revival services. The powerful moving of God and I said I want the international students to come up. I remembered vividly as I speak. Now I want you to come up and I want you to pray in your native language for your country. As we don't have to understand you but I want us to agree because will hear your heart and passion. If you prefer to pray in English, but otherwise they get update they pray in Dutch they pray in German they pray in Spanish and I remember we had a group of Chinese students she's had Japanese students and of course there there little people and and we had a number of ladies from Japan and when they got the mic rated screen. Intercession broke out all shattered when I saw their burden for the people is so hard. My heart was got revival come there.
I've got one more segment with real life, Israel, the Lord. The line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution. Here again is Dr. Michael Brown Internet music that Jewish Israeli music.
It's quick. Well, it reminds me as we come to rely from Jerusalem that this is my last segment we got a special broadcast prepare for tomorrow as I fly back gobbling and then planted to do a live from the states show on Friday. You've got questions, we've got answers a few hours after returning home.
Really looking forward to doing that.
I've not taken a single call that tried to get a single call because I have been focused on the very special guest Mario Blumenthal on his way with his family to China you missed his amazing testimony saved in the midst of Zen Buddhism in Japan.

We've got some very eye-opening material that's been posted just a few minutes ago we posted a video with Nelson Mandela to show you how anti-Israel propagandists manipulate and abuse statements that he made. Again, I think you'll find it by opening a bucket to get into my article about how Moscow to to read it. We will send out a link on Esther to Brown on Facebook or on twitter and posted on the latest article solicits up early evening today. All right oriole you moving to China. You obviously want to bless the people of China you want to serve them and deepen their roots in the Lord and the effectiveness of their ministry.
But what are you looking for the church of of Asia, China, Korea, Japan. What role do they play in the salvation of Israel and the Jewish people. Well, as I mentioned before, our theological understanding the Bible is that the ultimate goal here is to get the kingdom of God.
Yeshua Jesus back to this planet to the Mount of olives, the book of Romans, chapters 9, 10, 11, and Ephesians chapter 2 and three speak of a mystery of how that's can happen and it has everything to do with this concept from Ephesians chapter 2 verse 15 of the one new man of the Jew and Gentile, and of a power that is released in the body of Christ.
The body Messiah. When Jew and Gentile walk together in the fullness of who they are and we believe that the fullness of who we are as Jews has to do with this place this country, Israel and the city, Jerusalem, and because being a wee part of our ministry part of our sense of who we all has to do with being a a a bridge being like olive tree in Romans 11 helping the Gentiles to be grafted into this tree is were being graphically grafted into it and that tremendous power is released in that dynamic in as that is the apostle Paul's description of the one new man continues and Ephesians chapter 3 says that through this church. Through this web just described is this dynamic. This relationship of the wonderment. The manifold wisdom of God surpasses the Jew and Gentile together in Jesus equal status. No class system.
The caste system get each with a unique identity and role to play, serving one another.
Yeah, not holding onto their own identity knots show on a messianic Jew come work on this. On that saying I am who I am in serving you.
The other, just as inflicting serious as Jesus was God came to serve man and so found the fullness of of of godly identity and that's how I understand my role in calling all this, not just myself and many others with Asia. We see that and we believe that, just as it is jet the Lord's first coming.
Our people were confused didn't know when and where exactly how it was supposed to happen but there came Wiseman from the East who knew and it seems that as we get closer that there is a lot of wise men and people with revelation from the East coming once again to Jerusalem, prepare the way of the Lord and we I live here in downtown Jerusalem. Lord has established a steer and I see ourselves my are for my family as is kind of this, a bridge to facilitate this whole dynamic.
It can be talked about is that the sap from the roots and the olive tree in Romans 11 flowing to the whole body of Christ together. It could be the talked about is the one new man from Ephesians chapter 2 and three, we see that that God wants to do something that the fullness of the nations of the Gentiles is what brings about the salvation of Israel and the greater increasing fullness of Israel. The salvation of Israel. This is Romans 11 verses 11 through 15 brings about a greater blessing life from the dead in him. How much more to the church of the world's were living that it's it's a dynamic it's a spiritual thing.
It it it it's not something you plan or program too much, which is trying to sort of walk it out follow the Lord in all this and you know it is you pray you walking you service cuts to some extraordinary things. Here we go to just go to China and the church leaders of movements of millions of people just say older brother teach us I start shaking in our clips but they are looking to us, even though more this tiny little group here in Israel, but they know there's a sick there's something that's supposed to come from us to bring life from the dead to bring something greater to them so that they can bring it to us and back and forth.
It goes until we which reached the critical mass of Matthew 23 Barack Obama of Matthew 24 the gospel going to every nation, there's this were links until we hit the critical mass and the great shofar will sound, and he's going to come back yet and it's it's a joint effort I tell people here's the simple version the first woman came out of man. Every man since the start of woman.
So the gospel starts with the Jewish people goes to the Gentiles that sweeps the world of the Gentiles will bring it back to the Jewish people and everybody we need each other, working in harmony and the end result. Yes, the greatest harvest.
