VIDEO – Totul este gata pentru construirea Noului Templu la Ierusalim

Ierusalim – numele sau inseamna Orasul Pacii. Cu toate acestea, a fost distrus, reconstruit, cucerit si recucerit  de mai multe ori decat oricare alt  oras in istorie.

Nir Barkat, Primarul Ierusalimului: Orasul joaca un rol important. Este centrul lumii.

De 19 ani, Ierusalimul a fost impartit intre Israel si Iordania, orasul vechi fiind pe partea Iordaniei. In 1967, razboiul de 6 zile a condus la reunirea orasului, sub conducerea Israeleana. Dar un proces de pace, sustinut de Statele Unite incearca sa imparta orasul din nou. Dar Israelul isi pastreaza capitala eterna nedivizata. Palestinienii doresc ca partea estica sa slujeasca  drept capitala a unui viitor stat drept palestinian.  Dar primarul Ierusalimului, Nir Barkat, a spus ca divizarea orasului este imposibila.

Nir Barkat, Primarul Ierusalimului: Nu poate fi impartit. Nu va functiona niciodata ca oras impartit. Trebuie sa fie un singur oras care sa permita tuturor sa se inchine in felul lor si sa se respecte  unii pe ceilalti. Este loc pentru toti.

Ii puteti convinge pe palestinieni de aceasta?
Nir Barkat: Palestinienii care locuiesc in Ierusalim, inteleg aceasta. Eu sunt si un antreprenor, un capitalist indraznet. Nu va functiona niciodata. Nu avem nici un exemplu bun a vreunui oras care sa functioneze divizat. Ierusalimul este mentionat in Biblie de peste 800 de ori in Biblie, chiar de mai multe ori daca luam in considerare sinonimele ‘cetatea lui David’, si Sion, 660 din aceste referinte sunt in Biblia ebraica sau Vechiul Testament.

Moshe Kempinsky, scriitor evreu: Imi amintesc si astazi cum stateam in parc, copiii se jucau si mi-am dat seama la ce se referea Zaharia cand a spus ca va veni vremea cand batranii si batranele se vor rezema in bastioane, iar copiii vor juca pe strazile Ierusalimului. Poate ca i-a vazut pe copiii mei.

Reporter: Am stat de vorba cu autorul si omul de afaceri Moshe Kempinsky si l-am intrebat de legatura evreilor cu acest oras. Ce inseamna Ierusalimul pentru poporul evreu? Stiu ca e o intrebare fara sens. Dar, de ce Ierusalim?

Moshe Kempinsky: Este fara sens. De ce Ierusalim? De ce nu un oras la o rascruce de drumuri importante sau pe malul marii unde-si aseaza oamenii capitalele? Dar, Dumnezeu l-a ales.

Reporter: Orasul a fost divizat la un moment dat. Apoi a fost reunit in 1967. Va mai fi el divizat?

Moshe Kempinsky: Nu cred ca e posibil. Psalmul 122 spune ca Ierusalimul este ca o cetate facuta dintr-o bucata. Dar in ebraica nu se spune bucata, ci ‘reunit’. Dumnezeu spune ca este un oras care va fi impartit, dar pe care El il va reuni.

Reporter: Am vorbit cu evreii din Tel Aviv. Ei spun ca sunt dispusi sa imparta orasul cu altii, dar nu sa-l desparta.

Om pe strada:

  • In inima mea, nu pot sa accept asa ceva, ca orasul meu sa fie din nou divizat.
  • Credem ca Ierusalimul trebuie sa fie a evreilor pentru totdeauna. Dar nu cred ca exista o solutie care sa multumeasca ambele natiuni.

Kempinsky spune ca Dumnezeu are un plan pentru acest oras, indiferent de ce ar crede lumea.

Reporter: Ce spun ceilalti oameni  din alte natiuni despre felul in care vorbiti voi? Cum reactioneaza un palestinian la cuvintele voastre?

Kempinsky: Cred ca secretul intelegerii acestei tari este acela ca dovezile sunt complect irelevante. Nu realitatea conteaza aici. Conteaza cum percepem realitatea. Cred ca pentru a intelege ce se intampla aici, mai ales in ce-i priveste pe palestinieni, trebuie sa intelegem perceptiile lor. Ei cred ceea ce cred pentru ca li s-a spus ce trebuie sa creada. Asa ca, dialogul cu palestinienii a devenit imposibil  pentru ca islamul a intrat intr-o zona care a devenit imposibila.

Reporter: Ierusalimul nu este mentionat niciodata in Koran. Dar musulmanii interpreteaza un verset legat de moschee, ca este moscheea Al-Aksa de pe Muntele Templului din Ierusalim. Crestinii, musulmani si arabi sunt pasionati in legatura cu acest oras.

Om #1 si #2 pe strada la Muntele Templului: Acesta este un oras arab care nu poate fi divizat. Ei chiar au dispute intre ei. „Ai zis sa-l cedam.” „Nu am zis ca trebuie cedat. Ierusalim este doar pentru arabi, nu pentru evrei.Israel sa ramana pe teritoriile ocupate. Aveti Zidul Plangerii. Ce veti face cu El? Zidul plangerii poti sa-l ia ei, si cartierul armean.”

Reporter: Aveti problema chiar in fata voastra. Ca unul dintre cele mai contestate locuri de pe pamant, Biblia spune ca Ierusalimul va fi o piatra de poticnire pentru intreaga lume. Noi ne rugam pentru pacea Ierusalimului. Voi pentru ce va rugati?”

Kempinsky: Cuvantul pentru pace este Shalom. Vine de la Cuvantul Salem, desavarsit. Ne rugam pentru acea  desavarsire, cand locurile  ceresti si cele pamantesti se vor uni. Nu este un eveniment viitor. Este o revelatie viitoare.

Reporter: Crezi ca se va intampla in timpul vietii tale? Cred ca este ceva iminent.

They are eruptions so vast, so Earth-shattering, they have changed the history of our planet. Climate collapse. Toxic turmoil. Mass extinction. Worse than a killer asteroid, or nuclear war, they are Earth’s most destructive Supervolcanoes.

North America, the time was six hundred and forty thousand years ago, long before humans arrived on the continent. Amid one of nature’s great mountain building projects, the Rockies, vast columns of smoke began to rise high into the atmosphere. And soon a smokey haze wrapped the globe.

A thick blanket of ashe spread over the western United States. Geologists have traced this event to a depression in the land known as a caldera, in the heart of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Today, we venture to Yellowstone to admire its spectacles of steam and boiling mud.

Visitors to Yellowstone may never suspect they are atop one of the world’s largest active volcanoes.

The last time it blew, it sent an estimated 1000 cubic kilometers of dirt, rocks, ashe, dust, and soot into the atmosphere. But that’s small compared to Earth’s largest super volcanoes. Find out what made Toba, Siberian Traps, Deccan Traps and other super eruptions so powerful.

Testimony – A life of drugs and suicidal thoughts changes, when he remembered he had a copy of the New Testament

Photo credit

Testimony: Reverend Joplin Emberson

Joplin Emberson was leaving his high school one day when Gideons were conducting a distribution outside. One of the Gideons handed him a New Testament. Joplin had no intention of ever reading it. His life was spiraling out of control, and by the time he was a senior in high school he was addicted to drugs and selling them as well.

When he was 20, he found himself lying in bed after a horrible evening. He began contemplating suicide. But one thought came to his mind…”What if hell really exists?” And as the Lord would have it, he then picked up that New Testament, which for some reason he still had and opened it and began to read.

See what happened next in this inspiring testimony of how a single copy of God’s Word impacted a life forever.

Greg Laurie Interviews Dr. James Dobson

Dr. DobsonLaurie: To say that James Dobson is one of the most influential leaders in evangelicalism is an understatement. I would say he’s a living legend, and a man of God whom I’ve had the privilege to know personally. And I can tell you that the private Dr. Dobson is the same as the public Dr. Dobson, and I’ll refer to him as Jim, because he’s asked me to do that.

He was born on April 21st, 1936 in Shreveport, LA. He earned a pHd in Child Development at USC. He was associate clinical professor of pediatrics at the USC School of Medicine for 14 years. He spent 17 years on the staff of The Children’s Hospital  of Los Angeles in the division of Child Development and Medical Genetics. Then, he has also served on multiple government advisory panels and testified at government hearings as well. He has had close relationships with many of our presidents including President Reagan and President Bush I and President Bush II. He is also the outhor of many books, 36 in total, including

  • Dare to Discipline,
  • Bringing up boys,
  • Bringing up girls,
  • The strong willed child,
  • What wives wish their husbands knew about women
  • When God doesn’t make sense
  • and many more…
  • and his brand new book, coming out soon: Your legacy, your greatest gift (which is discussed in the interview)

Laurie: I first met Dr. Dobson in 1995 when we did a crusade in Colorado Springs, where Focus on the Family (Dobson’s organization) is located. As the years have gone gym we’ve talked here and there. But, his son Ryan became close friends with our son Christopher. In fact, they both went to Biola together. And when the Lord called our son home, Ryan contacted us and asked if I’d like to speak with his father. And so, after Christopher had died, we were on the phone a long time with Dr. Dobson, my wife, myself, our daughter-in-law Brittany. That same voice that has brought comfort to millions around the world was there for us at a very important time in our life. He has been, for many of us, there, at a very important time in our life and has influenced us and helped us to raise our children and tell us how to have stronger families. And he’s been an advocate for so many important issues that we hold dear, including the sanctity of life and the real biblical definition of  marriage and we’re thankful for his courage.

Pornography – A Fatal Addiction: Ted Bundy’s Final Interview with James Dobson

Pentru traducere automata, fa click aici – Romanian

At 7 a.m. on Tuesday, January 24, 1989, convicted serial killer Ted Bundy was put to death in the electric chair at Florida State Prison. He admitted murdering more than 2 dozen young women but is widely believed to have killed many more. In this video-Bundy’s final and exclusive interview conducted by Focus on the Family President and psychologist James Dobson – Bundy takes viewers back to his roots, explaining the developement of his compulsive behavior.He reveals his addiction to hard-core pornography and how it fueled the terrible crimes he commited. Bundy warns that within our society, are men like him, whose violent tendencies are being encouraged by pornography. A controversial presentation-recorded just hours before Bundy’s execution-„Fatal Addiction” is the story of a tormented man, a man caught between the right and wrong he learned as a child and his plunge into the dark world of hard-core, violent pornography.

Bundy:

Part of the tragedy of this whole situation: Because I grew up in a wonderful home with two dedicated and loving parents, one of 5 brothers and sisters, a home where we, as children, were the focus of my parents lives- where we regularly attended church. [I had] two Christian parents who did not drink, they did not smoke. There was no gambling. There was no physical abuse or fighting in the home. I’m not saying this was „Leave it to Beaver” [a TV show portraying a ‘perfect family’], no such home exists, but, it was a fine solid Christian home and I hope no one will take the easy way out and will try to blame, or otherwise accuse my family of contributing to this, because I know, and I’m trying to tell you as honestly as I know how, what I think happened. And I think, this is the message that I wanna get across.

As a young boy, a boy of 12, 13, certainly, that I encountered (outside the home, again), in the local grocery store, in the local drug store, the soft core pornography, what people call soft core porn. But, I think, as I explained to you last night, Dr. Dobson, in an anecdote, as young men do, we explore the back rows and sideways and byways of our neighborhood. And often times, people would dump the garbage and whatever they were cleaning out of their house and from time to time, we would come across pornographic books of a harder nature and more graphic, of a more explicit nature, then you would encounter in your local grocery store. This also included some things as, say, detective magazines [with violence]. And this is something I want to emphasize: the most damaging kinds of pornography , and again, I’m talking from personal experience, hard, real, personal experience. The most damaging kinds of pornography are those that involve violence, sexual violence. Because the wedding of those 2 forces, as I have known only too well, bring about behavior that is just too terrible to describe.

….

It’s important to me for people to believe what I’m saying. I’m not blaming pornography and I’m not saying pornography caused me to go out and do certain things, that I take full responsibility for whatever I’ve done and all the things that I’ve done. That’s not the question here. The question and the issue is how this kind of literature contributed and helped mold and shape the kinds of violent behavior. In the beginning, it fuels this kind of thought process. Then, at certain times, it’s instrumental in what I would say crystallizing it, making it something which is almost a separate entity inside. At that point, you’re at the verge, I was at the verge of acting out on these kinds of thoughts.

Dobson:

I wanna understand that. You had gone about as far as you could go in your fantasy life with printed material and film, magazines… And then, there was the urge to take that little step. A big step, over to a physical event.

Bundy:

It happened in stages, gradually. It doesn’t necessarily, not to me at least, happen over night. My experience with pornography, generally, but with pornography that deals on a violent level with sexuality is that once you become addicted to it, and I look at this as a kind of addiction. Like other kinds of addiction, I would keep looking for  more potent, more explicit, more graphic kinds of material. Like an addiction, you keep craving something which is harder , harder, something which gives you a greater sense of excitement, until you reach the point where the pornography will go so far. You’ve reached that jumping off point, where you begin to wonder if maybe actually doing it will give you that which is beyond just reading about it or looking at it.

Dobson:

How long did you stay at that point, before you actually assaulted someone?

Bundy:

Well yeah, you see… that is a very delicate point in my own development, and we’re talking about, we’re talking about having reached the point or a gray area that surrounded a point of years. I would say a couple of years. And what I was dealing with there were very strong inhibitions against criminal behavior, violent behavior, that had been conditioned into me, bred into me in my environment, in my neighborhood, in my church, in my school. Things which said, „No, this is wrong.” Even to think of it as wrong, but certainly, to do it is wrong. And I’m on that edge, and the last vestiges of restraint, the barriers to actually doing something were being tested constantly and assailed through the kind of fantasy life that was fueled largely by pornography.

Dobson:

Do you remember what pushed you over that edge? Do you remember the decision to go for it? Do you remember where you decided to throw caution to the wind?

Bundy:

Well… again, when you say pushed, I know what you’re saying. I don’t want to infer that I was some helpless kind of victim. And yet, we’re talking about an influence, that is the influence of violent types of media and violent pornography, which was an indispensable link in the chain of behavior, in the chain of events that led to the behaviors, to the assaults, to the murders… It’s a very difficult thing to describe. The sensation of reaching that point where I knew, that I reached something that (say) snapped. That I knew that I couldn’t control it anymore. That these barriers that I had learned as a child and had been instilled in me, were not enough to hold me back with respect to seeking out  and harming somebody.

Dobson:

Would it be accurate to call that a frenzy, a sexual frenzy

Bundy:

Well, yes, that’s one way to describe it. A compulsion , a building up of this destructive energy. Again, another factor here, that I haven’t mentioned, is the use of alcohol. But I think, what alcohol did, in conjunction with my exposure to pornography, was, alcohol reduced my inhibitions. At the same time, the fantasy life fueled by pornography  eroded them further.

Dobson:

In the early days, you were always nearly half drunk when you did these things? Was that always true?

Bundy:

Yes, yes. I would say that that was generally the case, without exception.

Dobson:

If I can understand it, now there’s this battle going on, within. There are the conventions that you’ve been taught. There’s the right and wrong that you learned as a child and then, there’s this unbridled passion fueled by your plunge into the hardcore violent pornography. And those things are at war with each other. And then, with the alcohol diminishing the inhibitions, you let go.

Bundy:

You can summarize that way, and that’s accurate, certainly. And it just occurred to me that some people would say, „Well, I’ve seen that stuff and it doesn’t do anything to me. And I can understand that. Virtually, anyone can be exposed to so called „pornography” and while they’re aroused to it in one degree or another, may not go out and do anything wrong. (Dobson: Addictions are like that. They affect some people more than they affect others. But there is a percentage of people affected by hardcore pornography in a very violent way and obviously, you’re one of them.) That was a major component and I don’t know why I was vulnerable to it. All I know is that it had an impact on me that was just so central to the development of the violent behavior that I engaged in.
