This classic interview replay from the 2017 NRB with Zach Waller of HaYovel - The Jubilee - amazing stories of the harvest in Israel
We are live on the floor of the National religious broadcasters convention today and how fun is this.
We get to see how God takes people's passion that everybody comes from a corner. This is just new and exciting and the name of the national religious broadcasters convention this year is proclaimed 20 seventeenths of these people are all proclaiming Christ in a different, unique way and this is one of the more new unique ways that I know of, and we have Zach Waller. He is with a ministry to Israel to agricultural ministry in Israel and Zach Tellis about your ministry.
Sure, thank you so much for having on the show have been so blessed we actually been going back and forth to Israel for the last 12 ministry is called a high-yield bill, which is a Hebrew word that means the Jubilee and the basically the our story is that that my dad started the ministry and that he made his first trip to Israel in 2004 and when he went as a farmer from Tennessee and met the farmers in Israel.
I quickly connected.
They started making a farmer talk about the soil and plants and then this set is really farmer took my dad out to his vineyard and showed him the vines in the open up the Bible to a Jeremiah 31 five where it says you will again plant vineyards on the mountains of Samaria on the mountains of frying and dad was blown away as I wow could be possible that these €3000 prophecies are actually happening today right now in our time, and it really just to come back is like wax. I think a lot of times within Christianity, we tend to think of things very soon on a very spiritual way and everything's kind of spiritualized and but the reality is, these prophetic things happening of Jesus was actually born in Bethlehem is actually a very physical thing physical prophecies that had to be fulfilled in order for us to know that he was the Messiah. So today were actually seeing physical things happen in the land of Israel that shows God's restoration happening right now. It's an incredible thing to actually stand in a vineyard and hold a cluster that you know probably the profits Jeremiah and Isaiah, and these guys saw in their vision of Monday when they talk about Israel being restored. These profits actually saw these visions of these people come from the nations next Isaiah says that that foreigners people from outside the land of Israel would come in and be a part of this redemption process of of Israel blossoming and blooming and Sosa data visually was blown away like wow this is incredible thing that's happening is so he went back he just knew right away that are our family was called to go to Israel to serve the Jewish people and I think probably more than the prophetic thing. The biggest thing for dad was he wanted to just bless and serve the Jewish people because one thing that we weren't very well educated about prior to going to Israel was depth of the wound that the Jewish people carry that for the last 2000 years there's been some really horrible things done to the Jewish people in the name of Christianity. Obviously, as you know, Christians are believers, we believe that those people weren't true Christians because of the fruit of what they did but from the Jewish perspective, these guys were proclaiming Jesus's name. They were in a Christians he called himself Christians when the Crusaders came and had a big no Red Cross on their shield and their coming and say the cross or die like these terrible things happen in the name of Jesus. And so the to the Jewish people therefore very very very and they don't trust Christians. They don't trust us, and for very very good reason.
So dad realize well, there's an opportunity to go and and one bring reparations. The relationship between Jewish people and the Christians and how to bring reparations in Jesus's name because it's been so defamed in his room and slamming the reality is most advisable even say the name Jesus, because it brings back all those terrible things that happened another Crusades, the Holocaust, all these these horrific, terrible, terrible thing to have in history so dad wanted just go and I'm bless and serve and show them love instead of all the horrible things that they'd seen the past of those were the first things that dad want to go and show him love and to to be connected to the prophetic things and in so we brought the message back to the US and started bringing our friends and family. People started coming in and joining us and pretty soon we had hundreds of volunteers coming back.
She had voluntarism 20 different countries come in and lessen serve and be part of his volunteer work from there, we realize. Well, there's a huge educational opportunity because these people come from the nations and their visiting the heartland division, especially work in Judea and Samaria. What some people call the West Bank will biblically is Judea and Samaria were actually 85% of the Bible was actually written or took place right there in that area, so bring them going places like lawn Moray where in Genesis 12 God spoke to Abraham and said, hey, this is a land and can get you and your descendents, and Bates, L where Jacob has his dream, and God confirms the covenant in Shiloh or the tabernacle actually stood for 369 years, and some have the temple less on labor people realizing show that that the tabernacle actually stood there for 369 years) apply so that all these biblical places are volunteers get to go to. So basically we do go and volunteer for four days and two days every week we go and visit these different places and help people connect to the land and people. So so it's become a huge educational opportunity people to actually go North all of the misinformation being put out taxes. He was really going on there in Israel and to realize the good the prophetic things that are happening and that God is actually after 2000 years of desolation flipped on the restoration switch and that these miracles are happening right now in the land of his or so, as is been such amazing miraculous opportunity for us to be able to be there and be a part of and also bring other people to be a part of it as well. Wow, that was a mouthful is a lot is a lot more I could share you can tell he has a passion is to build the kingdom were speaking with Zach Waller. He is way that I'm not attempt hi Val, hot high yield well yeah I Val and I heard you a minute ago, you know, I most people, I hear talk about the tribe of Efraim, don't say it the way you said it, which was really cool by the way of saying it because you obviously are you now spit yourself a lot of time there and they would know how to say it is their drive, they said yes. He has been the really educational opportunity learn some Hebrew and the Bible comes so much more alive national so so a frying and Israel. He could say a lot better with the great Hebrew accent but if rhyme is is the way that they would say. He also plays that we would say Shiloh were actually here. They say she low as the seven places are very similar but there is little bit differently. Yes, it's been great to actually learn the real names and the Hebrew names are the women came out. The main thing is that God is protective, but language yeah were you know all these many centuries you know there was no English backbend you know the one language that is fixed in a been provided to us from antiquity is Hebrew and in there you have a group that still can read and understand the point was written by an yes incredible story. There's a guy named Eliezer Ben Yehuda, who basically wrote the Hebrew dictionary because he had the biblical Hebrew was was preserved in some ways the Jewish people use it in their prayers but basically it wasn't a spoken language so was the first time so maybe sort of like Latin like that. Worse is what I think I just have a close friend who was in the woods grew up in Israel and his family have amazing stories, he was still but the way he put it to me and said Robbie it's, like when you guys Richard King James Bible and you really don't know some of some have struggle with that translation right that when you're reading if you're Hebrew and you reading the Bible, the words are not the same as your everyday words which are commonly used so there's a Pictionary buffet right yeah so he basically wrote no because there weren't words like airplane and classical and all these modern inventions didn't have word so but Hebrew is really complex because even the letters actually spell out the words. Like for instance father. The word for father in Hebrew is Abba right and so the letters that used to make that word are olive and Bates and olive means like head or strength, and Bates means house like a father is like the strength in the home is like the head of the household. So even if within the letters of the Hebrew language you have depth and greater definition is that there actually a picture you look at the letter itself that it was a picture. Summary is drawing a picture of right sure is illustrating the actual piece of the alphabet credits ranks attached.
So this guy had a huge job to actually know. So what are you doing have bicycle so he actually would like go back and related and not the letters have to be a certain way and like is a pretty huge job, but he miraculously was able to put together.
He had a newspaper he would send out with new words every week and so yeah and if you look back in the book of Zephaniah actually talks about things in chapter 3, it actually says that that that God speaking through Zephaniah says I will restore pure language to be like in that day as Ashley prophesied was really cool about that versus the verse.
Both war has every single Hebrew letter of the alphabet like all the letters of the Hebrew alphabet are included in that verse and so is like this build up to the verse in the very next verses I will restore pure language literally there's no other verse in the Bible has every single Hebrew letter, except that one right before so is like if they a guarantee is like getting a proof that okay to be a pure language and its Hebrew peers. All the letters and then boom on the restore pure language for other thing. The last time I had a chance to talk with from your ministry was that when you guys talk about a cluster of grapes that you know we saw the word picture in the grapes but you guys earlier in the promised land.
And these are different kind of vegetables and stuff like this. This is truly unique agricultural right.
Yeah it's been incredible physically touching the restoration is happening yet so I mean the reality is the place where were at the Scripture that I quoted from Jeremiah talks about the vineyards being planted in the in the grapes growing their reality is 30 years ago there weren't any vineyards on that area and those mountains and just last year we had about 500 volunteers came over, we harvested 450 tons of grapes from those mountains so 30 years ago there was none in last year we harvested 450 tons so is like an obvious enough show and tell of God's love and his and the prophetic things come in past, just like he said that they would in the Bible as happening right now. Today before I that is no question in is like 50 prophecies in the Bible to talk about the Jewish people returning in from all the countries of the world.
The Jewish people are pouring into Israel is like 8 million Jewish people living there now and it makes sense. If the Jewish people are to return to the land. The land has to also be restored in order to support the people and so were saying that happen right now. So the other produce is amazing is like all kinds of beautiful, beautiful produce and is like touching God is like he's causing this restoration to come to pass lower Hikers that your ministry is more than amazing say it again for our listeners. Yes, the name is how you Val H a Y OVL and it means the Jubilee and you guys are out here recruiting folks to come drawing it right. You want people to want to go yeah were trying to spread the word. If that is people who want to come and volunteer to go to our website is how you Val.com you can click on the volunteer page get signed up to come over. We get trips planned all through the summer and we accept really special trip this year because this year is the 50th year of the liberation of Jerusalem and Uganda area Jubilee year so really is a Jubilee year were celebrating 50th anniversary and we have a special trip this year on Jerusalem day which is the end of May.
That is more of an educational type of things. If you want to come for shorter tripping a two week trip and really get on education then go to website and check that out. It's gonna be really, really incredible trip just to learn and to find a note we don't call the tour is not like going to see all the holy sites or whatever were actually gonna dig in and the educated such an educated change your life. Kind of that experience with you can ask your listeners to pray for something your ministry will I think I would ask. Melissa biblical mandate in the Psalmist says pray for the peace of Jerusalem and at first that may sound kind of strange because you know God. The whole world. So why is he singling out Jerusalem that we would pray for the peace of it. Why me say prepay. Pray for the peace of the whole world and what we've come to realize through our work. There is that God wants to see salvation for the whole world right but Israel is used as the theater as the platform for salvation right. We know the Messiah came to Israel, and Israel rejected the Messiah and sent the message of salvation the world. That's why we believe in him right and so but then in the end that all of his will be saved. Everybody in Israel will come to the knowledge of salvation and will accept the Messiah. He returns, and so we pray for the peace of Jerusalem are not just praying for the peace of Jerusalem were actually praying for the peace of the whole world because when there's peace in Jerusalem and the Messiah, seated on his throne. There ruling over the world than their size for the world to fill bonus coverage timewise that Scripture it says pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but this gets back to your Zephaniah package package that there is a language barrier that people when they hear the word peace. They don't understand shalom which is a different concept altogether and what he actually said were supposed to be praying for is the shalom of Jerusalem. And when shalom comes more than just peace.
And some it's a measure of completeness and so when you're praying for shalom. You're not just praying that the Palestinians will get along with people of right Israelis what you're praying is that God's plan will be completed like that right right right yeah yeah that's was soon clearly, like you said shalom. There's a whole big study could do on the word and how it know it means that you said sweetness or for fullness or you had that type of an idea and so yes we pray for the peace of Jerusalem or paint praying for its wholeness. For it to become complete, for I that the Isaiah inside the Jerusalem word itself is shalom right yeah Jerusalem and so yet it's right there and inside of it and so there is this idea that I think anybody was familiar with the Scriptures is that of a large can come back to the Mount of olives of it right. This is worth happening right and all the world comes to him. You know through that that kind of thing so there's a completeness that what a cool thing when you think about it, that is, like when the when the disciples came to Jesus and said teach me to pray with very first things that our father in the heart man noted night by kingdom come route when you're praying for the patient to listen Russo, are you not in fact praying the Lord's prayer right right yeah exactly and I think a lot of people miss and I think I mentioned a little earlier about how we tend to spiritualize things and we don't realize how God is also in the physical.
He's right here with us alike like the Lord's prayer, your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven and also is like bring his presence here. It's not just about some sort of you know, hi, nice guy think he wants to be involved in our everyday lives right here with is not just you know on Sunday in church or just know certain times or days of the week in our prayer service. He wants everything we do to be according to his will, and bring his kingdom on earth on earth, physical reality as it is in heaven. While think that God bless you and what a great word thank you so much for having the show appreciated shalom out perfect
