Israel's life expectancy is four years higher than that of the USA. Gordon Robertson takes a look at some of the medical breakthroughs that have come from Israel, including cancer and diabetes treatment and technology to help blind people see ... Read Transcript


Gordon: THE BLIND SHALL

Gordon: THE BLIND SHALL

SEE, AND THE LAME SHALL

WALK.

WE FOUND THE SOLUTION.

I WAS AMAZED.

Gordon: HOW ISRAELI

MEDICINE IS MAKING BIBLICAL

PROPHECY COME TRUE.

NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER

OF ALL INVENTIONS.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO LIVE

AN EXTRA FOUR YEARS?

THAT'S WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU

LIVE IN ISRAEL.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, LIFE

EXPECTANCY THERE IS FOUR

YEARS HIGHER THAN IT IS HERE

IN THE UNITED STATES.

THE JEWISH STATE IS A HOTBED

FOR MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS,

INCLUDING TECHNOLOGY TO HELP

THE BLIND SEE, THE LAME

WALK.

TAKE A LOOK.

Gordon: ON JANUARY 8,

2011, A GUNMAN OPENED FIRE

IN TUCSON, ARIZONA.

HIS TARGET WAS CONGRESSWOMAN

GABRIELLE GIFFORDS, WHO WAS

SHOT IN THE HEAD AT

POINT-BLANK RANGE.

TO STOP THE BLEEDING,

E.M.T.s USED A SPECIAL

BANDAGE THAT PUTS PRESSURE

ON WOUNDS AND PREVENTS

INFECTION.

FIRST RESPONDERS SAID THE

BANDAGE SAVED GIFFORD'S

LIFE.

AND IT IS ONE OF MANY

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGHS THAT

GOT ITS START IN ISRAEL.

ISRAEL HAS ONE OF THE

HIGHEST LIFE EXPECTANCIES IN

THE WORLD.

OUR LIFE EXPECTANCY HERE IS

ABOUT FOUR YEARS LONGER THAN

THE U.S.

SO IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME

MOVE TO ISRAEL, ON AVERAGE,

YOU'LL ADD FOUR YEARS TO

YOUR LIFE.

Gordon: FROM FIGHTING

CANCER TO GIVING SIGHT TO

THE BLIND TO MAKING THE LAME

WALK AGAIN, ISRAEL IS

LEADING THE WORLD IN MEDICAL

INNOVATION.

EVERY DAY MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS USE SOME KIND OF

MEDICAL TREATMENT THAT CAME

FROM ISRAEL.

FROM SANBUCOL, A COLD AND

FLU MEDICINE, MADE FROM

ELDERBERRIES.

THERE IS A WIRELESS LASER

THAT WILL DAY REPLACE THE

DENTIST DRILL.

AND THIS TAKES PICTURES

INSIDE YOUR COLON,

ELIMINATING THE FEED FOR A

COLONOSCOPY.

MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF

THESE PROCEDURES ARE DONE

EVERY YEAR, AND WHAT IF YOU

COULD MAKE IT PAINLESS AND

TAKE A LOT OF RISK OUT OF

THE PROCEDURE.

THAT'S A CLASSIC ISRAELI

SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM.

Gordon: IN THE FIELD OF

MEDICINE, FINDING A CURE FOR

CANCER IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

GOALS, AND ALTHOUGH A FULL

CURE IS STILL IN THE FUTURE,

ISRAELI SCIENTISTS ARE

MAKING HUGE ADVANCES.

THE NEWS IS FULL OF STORIES

ABOUT DOGS WHO CAN SMELL

EVERYTHING FROM EPILEPSY TO

CANCER IN THEIR OWNERS.

SO ONE SCIENTIST TOOK THAT

IDEA AND REFINED IT.

IF THE DOGS CAN SMELL

CANCER, WE FOR SURE CAN DO

IT IN A LITTLE MORE

SOPHISTICATED WAY.

WE CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE

DEVICE MUCH BETTER THAN WE

CAN COMMUNICATE WITH THE

DOG.

Gordon: HASAM HITE

DEVELOPED THE NANO

ARTIFICIAL TUMORS BEFORE

THEY'RE EVEN VISIBLE ON

X-RAYS, JUST BY ANALYZING A

PATIENT'S BREATH.

THE DEVICE CAN GIVE

RESULTS WITHIN FIVE MINUTES

TO ONE HOUR, MORE OR LESS.

MANY OF THE TOOLS REQUIRE

YOU TO SWALLOW AN ACID

MATERIAL TO MAKE THE

DIAGNOSIS POSSIBLE.

WE DON'T EXPOSE YOU TO ANY

RISKY X-RAYS OR THINGS THAT

MIGHT MAKE CANCER BY

THEMSELVES.

Gordon: THE ARTIFICIAL

NOSE IS STILL IN CLINICAL

TRIAL, WHERE THE ACCURACY

RATES RANGE FROM 86% TO

97%.

AND IT IS BEING CUSTOMIZED

TO SNIFF OUT OTHER DISEASES

AS WELL, LIKE ALZHEIMER'S,

PARKONSIN'S AND

DIABETESMENT.

DIABETES.

WE BELIEVE WE CAN FULFILL

THIS.

Gordon: OTHER ISRAELI

SCIENTISTS ARE FOCUSING ON

THE TREATMENT OF CANCER, AND

THEY'RE DOING EVERYTHING

FROM BURNING TUMORS WITH

THERMAL HEAT, TO FREEZING

THEM WITH LIQUID NYGEN.

NITROGEN.

ONE DOCTOR IS EVEN

DEVELOPING A VACCINE FOR

CANCER.

IT TRAINS THE BODY'S IMMUNE

CELLS TO ATTACK A SPECIFIC

MOLECULE FOUND ONLY IN

CANCER.

AND SO THE VACCINE HAS NO

SIDE EFFECTS LIKE CHEMO AND

REGULATION.

WITH ONE SHOT EVERY TOO

MONTHS, THE BODY'S IMMUNE

SYSTEM WILL KEEP IT UNDER

CONTROL.

WE ARE EDUCATING THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM TO DO WHAT IT

WOULD TRY TO DO ITSELF.

WE'RE NOT INVENTING

ANYTHING.

Gordon: IN THE FIRST

CLINICAL TRIAL, THE VACCINE

SUCCESSFULLY TRIGGERED THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM IN ALL 15

PATIENTS.

YOU WILL SEE IN THE

FUTURE THAT WE ENTER A FIELD

THAT IS VERY ATTRACTIVE, AND

WE JUST SCRATCHED THE

BEGINNING OF IT.

WE HAVE A LOT MORE THINGS TO

COME.

I'M VERY ENCOURAGED BY WHAT

I'VE SEEN.

Gordon: IN 1829, THE

INTRODUCTION OF BRAILLE

REVOLUTIONNIZED THE WAY

BLIND PEOPLE READ AND

WRITE.

TODAY ISRAELI INVENTORS ARE

TAKING THAT REVOLUTION A

STEP FURTHER.

FOR PEOPLE WITH LIMITED

SIGHT, THERE IS A NEW DEVICE

CALLED THE ORCAM.

IT IS A POCKET-SIZED

COMPUTER, LINKS TO A SMALL

CAMERA THAT CLIPS ON TO YOUR

GLASSES.

THE CAMERA SEES WHAT YOU

SEE.

WHEN YOU POINT YOUR FINGER

AT SOMETHING, THE ORCAM WILL

READ IT FOR YOU.

EVERYTHING FROM

MENUS TO STREET SIGNS.

AND FOR THOSE WITH TOTAL

VISION LOSS, THERE IS

"PROJECT RAY," THE FIRST

EVER SMARTPHONE FOR THE

BLIND.

WITH THE TAP OF A FINGER,

USERS CAN MAKE PHONE CALLS,

SEND TEXTS, AND EVEN SURF

THE WEB.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Gordon: WHILE THESE

INVENTIONS ARE GIVING BLIND

PEOPLE MORE INDEPENDENCE,

ANOTHER ONE IS ACTUALLY

RESTORING THEIR SIGHT.

A COMPANY CALLED NANO RETINA

IS FOCUSING ON PEOPLE WHO

HAVE LOST THEIR SIGHT FROM

MACULAR DEGENERATION.

THEY'VE CREATED THE BIONIC

EYE, AN IMPLANT THAT

PROVIDES USERS WITH

GREY-SCALE VISION, A BIG

IMPROVEMENT OVER TOTAL

BLINDNESS.

NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER

OF ALL INVENTIONS.

AND ISRAELIS SOMETIMES TEND

TO THINK OUTSIDE OF THE

BOX.

IF THERE IS AN OBSTACLE, WE

DO NOT HIT OUR FOREHEAD AT

THE OBSTACLE, BUT WE GO

AROUND IT.

WE FOUND A SOLUTION.

Gordon: ONE OF THOSE

SOLUTIONS IS GIVING NEW LIFE

TO PEOPLE WHO WERE TOLD THEY

WOULD NEVER WALK AGAIN.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND

WHEELCHAIRS ARE THE ONLY

SOLUTION FOR A PARALYZED

PERSON.

Gordon: IN 1997, AMED

GOFFER WAS PARALYZED IN A

CAR ACCIDENT, AND SINCE THEN

HE HAS BEEN ON A MISSION: TO

PUT THE WHEELCHAIR OUT OF

BUSINESS.

SO HE DESIGNED SOMETHING

CALLED THE REWALK.

A BRACE THAT USES MOTORS TO

HELP PARAPLEGICS WALK AND

EVEN DRIVE A CAR.

IRONICALLY, HE COULDN'T USE

HIS OWN INVENTION BECAUSE HE

IS A QUADRIPLEGIC, AND THE

DEVICE REQUIRES THE USE OF

THE ARMS.

BUT HE SOON FOUND A VETERAN

WHO WAS MORE THAN WILLING TO

TRY IT.

WHEN THE DOCTOR TOLD ME I

AM LUCKY TO BE ALIVE, BUT MY

INJURY WOULD LEAVE ME

PARALYZED, EVERYTHING BECAME

DARK.

Gordon: RODDY IS A

FORMER PARATROOPER WHO WAS

INJURED IN SOUTH LEBANON.

IN ONE OF THE

REHABILITATION CENTERS IN

CENTRAL ISRAEL, I MET AMED.

HE TOLD ME HE HAD DEVELOPED

A DEVICE THAT HELPS A

PARAPLEGIC TO WALK.

I DIDN'T AND I WOULD BE ABLE

TO STAND UP.

AFTER I TRIED IT AND THE

DEVICE MADE ME STAND UP, I

WAS AMAZED.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Through Translator: MY

DAUGHTER WAS THREE YEARS OLD

BACK THEN.

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID,

DAD, YOU ARE TALL.

THAT MADE MY DAY.

I LIKE TO SEE THE

FAMILIES EXCITED.

THEY SEE THEIR BELOVED ONES,

AND THEN YOU WANT TO CRY.

Gordon: RODDY STARTED

USING THE REWALK SIX YEARS,

AND SINCE THEN, THE DEVICE

HAS GONE GLOBAL.

IN 2012 A YOUNG WOMAN NAMED

CLAIRE LOMAS USED THE REWALK

IN THE LONDON MARATHON.

SHE WALKED THE 26 MILES IN

17 DAYS, EARNING HER THE

NICKNAME BIONIC WOMAN.

I'M GOING TO USE THIS THE

REST OF MY LIFE.

I DANCE FOUR TIMES A

WEEK, AND I LOVE IT VERY

MUCH.

AND I KNEW THAT I'M NOT

GOING TO STOP JUST BECAUSE

I'M DIABETIC.

Gordon: SHY BARSHIRA IS

A DANCER, A STUDENT, A

TYPE 1 DIABETIC.

SHE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST

PEOPLE TO TRY A NEW MEDICAL

DEVICE: THE ARTIFICIAL

PANCREAS.

IT IS STILL IN THE

EXPERIMENTAL STAGE, AND

RIGHT NOW IT IS JUST A

LAPTOP WITH A SERIES OF

SENSORS THAT MONITOR HER

BLOOD.

DR. MOSHAY PHILLIP IS ONE OF

THE DEVELOPERS.

I PROMISED MY PATIENTS

ONE DAY THEY WOULD GET RID

OF THE DISEASE.

THE FACT THAT WE HAVE NOT

BEEN ABLE TO CURE DIABETES

YET, WE WOULD LIKE TO ENABLE

OUR PATIENTS TO LIVE THEIR

LIFE'S WITHOUT THINKING OF

DIABETES ALL OF THE TIME.

Gordon: THE DOCTOR

OVERSAW TRIALS AND OTHER

COUNTRIES, BUT SHY WAS THE

FIRST ONE TO USE IT IN

HIS COUNTRY.

IT GIVES ME A VERY, VERY

STRONG ALARM, AND IT TELLS

ME I HAVE TO EAT RIGHT

AWAY.

AND IF MY LEVELS GO VERY

HIGH, IT FIXES MY LEVELS.

IT CALCULATES ITSELF HOW

MUCH INSULIN I SHOULD TAKE,

AND IT GIVES AN AUTOMATIC

ORDER, MY PUMP, TO GIVE ME

INSULIN.

AND I'M MORE BALANCED THAN I

WAS WHEN I WENT TO SLEEP,

AND THAT'S AMAZING.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO

CHANGE THE LIFE OF OUR

PATIENTS, AND THAT'S THE

IDEA, TO FREE THEM FROM

BEING BUSY WITH THINKING

ABOUT HOW TO BALANCE THEIR

BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS ALL OF

THE TIME.

I FEEL THERE IS SO MUCH

EFFORT TO HELP THE DIABETIC

TO FEEL LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT,

YOU HAVE THIS DISEASE, BUT

NO MORE.

WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE THE

TREATMENTS BETTER, MORE

COMFORTABLE, AND WE'LL GET

THERE.

THE FEELING I HELPED OTHER

PEOPLE, TOO, IT GIVES ME THE

STRENGTH TO KEEP GOING ON.

IF I'M PART OF SOMETHING

BIG, I FEEL THAT I'M NOT

ALONE IN THIS BUSINESS, AND

IT GIVES YOU A LOT OF HOPE.

FIRST, A MODERN DAY FAMILY

OF BETHLEHEM SHEPHERDS.

SEE HOW THREE GIFTS CHANGED

THEIR LIVES, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: A MUSLIM WOMAN

AND HER FAMILY FOLLOWED A

WAY OF LIFE THAT IS

CENTURIES' OLD.

NOT LONG AGO THEY WERE

STRUGGLING JUST TO SURVIVE,

UNTIL THEY RECEIVED THREE

GIFTS.

DAN RAINY BRINGS US THEIR

STORY.

Reporter: SHEPHERDING

HAS ALWAYS BEEN A WAY OF

LIFE FOR PEOPLE OF THE HOLY

LAND.

THE BIBLE SAID ANGELS

ANNOUNCED THE BIRTH OF JESUS

CHRIST TO SHEPHERDS, WHO

WERE ABIDING IN THE FIELD,

KEEPING WATCH OVER THEIR

FLOCK BY NIGHT.

NOT FAR FROM BETHLEHEM LIVES

A MUSLIM WOMAN NAMED AMINA.

AND HER FAMILY RAISED SHEEP

FOR GENERATIONS.

SHEPHERD IS PART OF OUR

HERITAGE, BUT WE HAVE NO

MONEY AND SHEEP ARE

EXPENSIVE.

Reporter: INSTEAD, SHE

SOWS, AND HUSBAND DOES

CONSTRUCTION TO SUPPORT THE

FAMILY.

THEY HAVE FIVE CHILDREN,

INCLUDING MOHAMMED, WHO HAS

MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.

WHEN I LOOK AT MY SON, I

DON'T SEE THE PROBLEMS THAT

HE DEALS WITH.

I SEE A SWEET YOUNG MAN WITH

A GOOD CHARACTER.

WHEN WE LOOK AT EACH OTHER,

HE KNOWS I LOVE HIM, AND I

KNOW HE LOVES ME AS WELL.

Reporter: MOHAMMED GOES

TO A THERAPY CENTER SPORTED

BY "OPERATION BLESSING."

THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW

CENTERS THAT HELP PEOPLE

WITH SPECIAL NEEDS IN THE

WEST BANK.

THERAPY IS SO HARD, BUT I

WANT TO WORK ONE DAY.

I WANT TO BE A SHEPHERD.

Reporter: THEY EVEN

HAVE OPEN PASTURE NEXT TO

THEIR HOME.

IT IS VERY NICE DOWN

THERE.

AS A FAMILY, WE GO INTO THE

VALLEY OFTEN OR HAVE PICNICS

AND JUST ENJOY THE NATURE.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" GAVE

THE FAMILY THREE PREGNANT

SHEEP.

TODAY WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" HELP, YOU AND

YOUR FAMILY ARE SHEPHERDS

AGAIN.

YES, WE ARE SHEPHERDS

YOU CAN SEE MY SMILE.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY FOR US.

Reporter: IN JUST TWO

MONTHS, THE FAMILY HAS BEEN

ABLE TO BUY GOATS FOR

MILKING, CHICKENS, AND MORE

SHEEP.

MOHAMMED IS BECOMING MORE

MOBILE AND INDEPENDENT EVERY

DAY.

IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO KNOW

YOU ALL.

SAY, I WANT TO GIVE TO CBN

ISRAEL.

EITHER WAY, DO IT NOW:

1-888-777-1999.

THAT'S THE NUMBER.

WELL, COMING UP, A HOSPITAL

THAT OFFERS SOME OF THE BEST

MEDICAL TREATMENT IN THE

WORLD, EVEN THOUGH IT'S IN

THE FIRING RANGE OF HAMAS

ROCKETS.

Gordon: DURING THE LAST

YEAR'S CONFLICT BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND GAZA, THE TWO

SIDES WARRED FOR SEVEN

WEEKS.

ROCKETS AND MISSILES WERE

FIRED ACROSS BORDERS, AND

MORE THAN 10,000 CIVILIANS

WERE INJURED.

SOME OF THEM WERE TREATED IN

A HOSPITAL NOT TOO FAR FROM

THE FRONT LINES OF THE

BATTLE.

A HOSPITAL THAT TREATED BOTH

ISRAELI AND PALESTINIAN

PATIENTS AND DID SO

EQUALLY.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THAT

REPORT FROM ESCALON,

ISRAEL.

George: DR. RON LOBEL

HAS WORKED AT THIS HOSPITAL

FOR 34 YEARS.

BUT AS DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF

THE HOSPITAL, HE STILL

CANNOT GET USED TO THE SOUND

OF THE SIREN WARNING OF

INCOMING ROCKETS, WHICH

SENDS EVERYONE SCRAMBLING TO

SHELTER.

WE'VE BEEN LIVING WITH

THIS SITUATION OF ROCKETS

EXPLODING ABOVE THE

HOSPITAL, AND SOME OF THEM

WERE EXPLODING WITHIN THE

PREMISES OF THE HOSPITAL.

George: THE HOSPITAL IS

JUST SEVEN MILES FROM GAZA,

AND WITHIN EASY REACH OF

HAMAS' ROCKETS.

IT MEANS DRIVING BACK AND

FORTH, COMING FOR THE SHIFT,

IS A THREAT.

George: AND IT IS ALSO

ONE OF THE MAIN HOSPITALS

TREATING INJURED SOLDIERS

COMING OFF THE BATTLEFIELD.

CBN WAS THERE WHEN SOLDIERS

BROUGHT IN AN INJURED

SOLDIER.

UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS,

WHEN THE WAR IS NOT GOING

ON, THIS ROOM WOULD BE

SEALED OFF.

THERE WOULD BE NO USE OF

IT.

BUT TODAY IT IS A HYPE OF

ACTIVITY BECAUSE IT HOUSES

SOME OF THE MOST VULNERABLE

PATIENTS HERE IN THE CITY.

DR. LOBEL GAVE CBN NEWS A

TOUR OF THE HOSPITAL,

INCLUDING THE UNDERGROUND

BUNKER TURNED NEONATAL WARD

THAT IS CARRYING FOR

PREMATURE BABIES.

THIS IS THE MOST

SHELTERED AREA IN THE

HOSPITAL, THE REAL SHELTERED

AREA IN THE HOSPITAL.

AND THESE ARE THE BABIES

THAT MIGHT SUFFER MOST FROM

MOVING URGENTLY FROM ONE

PLACE TO THE OTHER.

George: AND THIS

HOSPITAL ALSO TREATS

PALESTINIAN PATIENTS FROM

THE WEST BANK.

BEFORE THE RECENT CONFLICT

ERUPTED, PATIENTS FROM GAZA

ROUTINELY VISITED THE

HOSPITAL.

BUT THEY HAVE STOPPED THAT

FOR NOW.

MANY OF THE DOCTORS AND

NURSES HAVE WORKED AT

BARZELI, ALONGSIDE THEIR

ISRAELI COUNTER-PARTS.

YOU CAN SEE, LYING SIDE

BY SIDE, A PATIENT FROM

GAZA, AND A PATIENT BEING

INJURED BY A PALESTINIAN

ROCKET.

AND THEY LIE SIDE BY SIDE,

AND THEY'RE BEING TREATED BY

ISRAELI DOCTORS AND BY

PALESTINIAN TRAINEES.

WE ALWAYS SAY THAT WE HAVE A

BOX AT THE ENTRANCE WHERE WE

LEAVE OUR POLITICS OUTSIDE.

AND HERE, WHOEVER KNOCKS ON

OUR DOOR IS BEING TREATED.

George: LOBEL SAYS THE

HOSPITAL IS A SYMBOL OF WHAT

HE HOPES WILL SOME DAY BRING

LASTING PEACE BETWEEN

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

ISRAEL.

Gordon: WORDS TO LIVE

BY: "WE HAVE A BOX OUTSIDE

WHERE WE LEAVE OUR POLITICS

BEFORE WE COME INSIDE."

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

AT "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE WANT TO CONNECT WITH YOU

ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

OUR Facebook PAGE.

THERE IS ALSO

700CLUBINTERACTIVE.COM.

WE'RE ON TWITTER.

WE'RE ON Facebook.

AND I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO

DO THAT.

ON OUR WEBSITE WE HAVE LOTS

OF INSPIRATIONAL STORIES FOR

YOU EVERY DAY.

ON Facebook WE HAVE LIFE

VERSES FOR YOU TO ENCOURAGE

YOU EVERY DAY.

SO GO LIKE US ON

Facebook.

GO TO OUR WEBSITE.

BE PART OF THE COMMUNITY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG IN

AND YOU CAN GET ALL OF THIS

KIND OF INFORMATION.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, YOU

CAN ALSO SEND US YOUR PRAYER

REQUESTS OR QUESTIONS.

AND WE ENJOY HEARING FROM

YOU.

SO LET'S GO OVER TO JESSICA

TO FIND OUT WHAT IS

HAPPENING ONLINE.

GORDON, HERE IS A

QUESTION THAT CAME INTO OUR

IN BOX, FROM CLAUDETTE; "MY

PASTOR SAID THE OTHER DAY

THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE

NO LONGER GOD'S CHOSEN

PEOPLE.

HE SAID THE CHRISTIANS ARE

THE NEW ISRAEL.

THAT DIDN'T SIT WELL WITH

ME.

IS IT TRUE, GORDON?"

Gordon: IT DOESN'T SIT

WELL FOR ME, EITHER.

THE GIFTS AND THE CALLING OF

GOD OR WITHOUT

REPENTANCE.

WHEN GOD SPEAKS, HE SPEAKS

FOR ALL ETERNITY.

WHEN HE MAKES A COVENANT AND

HE SWEARS BY HIS OWN NAME,

HE MEANS IT.

HE DOESN'T TAKE IT BACK.

SO THE COVENANT HE MADE WITH

NOAH EXISTS TODAY.

THE COVENANT HE MADE WITH

ABRAHAM EXISTS TODAY.

THE COVENANT HE MADE WITH

MOSES AT MT. SINAI EXISTS

TODAY.

THE COVENANT THAT JESUS

MADE, WITH HIS BLOOD, EXISTS

FOR YOU AND ME.

SO REALIZE THAT.

ALL OF THESE COVENANTS ARE

STILL WORKING.

THERE IS A SPECIFIC CHAPTER

I WANT YOU TO READ.

GO TO ROMANS, THE 11th

CHAPTER, AND IT BEGINS WITH

THESE WORDS: "HAS GOD

REJECTED HIS PEOPLE?"

AND PAUL ANSWERS HIS OWN

PEOPLE: "BY NO MEANS."

SO ALL OF THIS OTHER STUFF

THAT THE CHRISTIANS ARE THE

NEW ISRAEL, THAT THE JEWISH

PEOPLE ARE NO LONGER THE

PEOPLE OF GOD -- ALL OF THAT

IS BEING CALLED REPLACEMENT

THEOLOGY.

AND PLEASE REALIZE IT GOES

AGAINST SCRIPTURE.

GOD DOESN'T LIE.

AND WHEN HE MAKES A

COVENANT, HE STANDS BY IT.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM GENESIS: "I WILL

BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS YOU.

I WILL CURSE HIM WHO CURSES

YOU.

AND IN YOU ALL THE FAMILIES

OF THE EARTH SHALL BE

BLESSED."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN SOON.
