This Is Israel #6: A Place of Healing


HELLO, I’M ZOLA LEVITT. ON TODAY’S PROGRAM,
WE’RE GOING TO GO TO
OPPOSITE ENDS OF ISRAEL. WE’LL START AT THE
SOUTH SHORES OF THE DEAD SEA. AND LATER ON,
WE’LL PROGRESS NORTH TO THE GREEN HILLS OF GALILEE. AND BOTH PLACES, WE’LL
SEE A WONDERFUL KIND OF HEALING AVAILABLE IN THE PROMISED LAND.[ music playing ]SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN. WELCOME BACK TO OUR
“THIS IS ISRAEL”
SERIES. WE ARE DOING THIS TO SHOW ISRAEL
THE BEAUTIFUL, POSITIVE COUNTRY IT REALLY IS AND NOT THE
ONE PORTRAYED BY THE MEDIA. IT’S REALLY A PLACE OF BEAUTY
AND A PLACE OF HEALING. PEOPLE COME HERE FOR ITS
REJUVENATING CHARACTERISTICS AND THAT’S OUR EMPHASIS
ON TODAY’S PROGRAM. LATER ON, WE’RE GOING TO GO
TO THE GREEN HILLS OF GALILEE. BUT FIRST, WE’LL BE IN THE
SOUTHERN PART OF THE COUNTRY. LET ME ORIENT YOU A BIT. ISRAEL IS, OF COURSE,
ON THE MEDITERRANEAN COAST. RUNS UP AND DOWN LIKE THIS. HERE’S THE SEA OF GALILEE
AND HERE’S THE DEAD SEA. AND THE YELLOW LINES THAT
WE’VE DRAWN ARE THE SO-CALLED WEST BANK, THAT IS
BIBLICAL JUDEA AND SAMARIA. AND GAZA WHERE
ARAFAT’S GOVERNMENT AND
THE PALESTINIANS ARE LOCATED. AND ON THIS PROGRAM,
WE’LL GO FROM HERE, THE SOUTHERN SHORE OF THE
DENSITY ALL THE WAY UP TO PRACTICALLY THE NORTHERN BORDER,
NORTH OF THE SEA OF GALILEE. AND WE WILL SEE PEOPLE TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THE SPECIAL HEALING AND REJUVENATING FEATURES
OF THIS VERY SPECIAL LAND. TO MANY PEOPLE,
ISRAEL IS A COLUMNS
LIKE THESE PILLARS BEHIND ME. OLD ROMAN RUINS. SIGNS OF GREATER TIMES,
BETTER DAYS. BUT YOU KNOW, I HAVE GOOD NEWS. ISRAEL IS ALSO A PLACE OF GREAT
BEAUTY, A PLACE OF HEALING. BEHIND ME IS A POOL OF
DEAD SEA WATER AND WE ARE IN A SPA OF A FINE RESORT HOTEL DOWN BY THE DEAD SEA,
ON THE SHORE. PEOPLE COME HERE FROM
ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR THE BEAUTY AND FOR THE HEALING. THIS IS A BIBLICAL
BORDER ORIGINALLY. LISTEN TO WHAT GOD SAID
FROM THE BOOK OF NUMBERS: AND THAT IS THE DEAD SEA IN
BIBLE LANGUAGE, THE SALT SEA. AND INDEED, THIS IS ONE OF
THE SALTIEST SEAS ON EARTH AND WE ARE AT
THE LOWEST POINT ON EARTH. ON THE WHOLE WORLD
THERE IS NOT A DEEPER VALLEY THAN THIS 1300 FOOT RIFT, THAT
IS 1300 FEET BELOW SEA LEVEL. THE RIFT WAS MADE
IN THE LAND
EVIDENTLY BY AN EARTHQUAKE ABOUT
A MILLION YEARS AGO. NOW, IF YOU
HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A MILLION
YEARS IN THE BIBLE, THEN YOU NEED TO SEE
OUR PROGRAMS WITH
DR. GERALD SCHROEDER WHO EXPLAINED TO US
HOW THE SIX DAYS OF CREATION AND THE 15 BILLION YEARS
THE COSMOLOGIST FOUND IN THE UNIVERSE WERE
REALLY THE SAME TIME PERIOD. AND A MILLION YEARS AGO TO
PROFESSOR SCHROEDER WOULD BE WELL IN THE AGE
OF MEN ON EARTH AND SO ON AND WOULD ALSO
BE WITHIN THE SIX DAYS. IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT, WRITE TO ME AND ASK ME AND I
WILL SEND YOU SOME MATERIALS. IN ANY CASE, THE VALLEY WAS
CAUSED BY AN EARTHQUAKE AND NOW, IT HAS COLLECTED A KIND OF A
SALTY, SALTY WATER BECAUSE THERE IS A DEEP HILL THAT
RUNS DOWN HERE FROM GALILEE. THE WATER STARTS OUT IN
MT. HERMON IN THE
NORTHERN GALILEE ACTUALLY, IN THE SOUTHERN PART
OF LEBANON ON A HIGH MOUNTAIN, THE SNOW MELTS AND GOES
DOWN TO THE SEA OF GALILEE. THEN IT GOES
DOWN THE JORDAN RIVER, ALWAYS FALLING DOWNHILL
INTO THIS DEEP VALLEY AND WHEN IT GETS
DOWN AS FAR AS THE DEAD SEA AND HAS PICKED UP THE SALT
AND THE MINERALS THAT HAS RUN THROUGH THE WINDING JORDAN RIVER
ALL THE WAY TO THE DEAD SEA UNTIL IT GETS TO THE SEA
AND IN EFFECT, IT DIES. NOW, THERE IS A WONDERFUL
ANALOGY OF THE LORD’S MINISTRY IN THAT VERY IMAGE. THE LORD COMES DOWN FROM HEAVEN, FROM HIS FATHER’S HOUSE
TO OUR HOUSE; THAT IS THE SNOW
FALLING ON MT. HERMON, AND PURE AND FRESH AND CLEAR. AND THE WATER RUNS DOWN
THROUGH THE SEA OF GALILEE, VERY MUCH ALIVE, FULL OF FISH; THAT IS THE
LORD’S EARTHLY MINISTRY. HE MADE HIS
DISCIPLES FISHERS OF MEN. AND THEN THE WATER PROCEEDS
DOWN THROUGH THE VALLEY, THE TWISTING JORDAN RIVER, PICKING UP THE SALT
OF THE EARTH – US, “YE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH,”
THE SCRIPTURES SAID. JESUS SAID THAT. AND THE MINERALS AND SO ON, UNTIL IT GETS ALL THE WAY DOWN
INTO THAT DEEP, DEEP VALLEY AND IT IS SO SALTY THAT
NOTHING COULD BE ALIVE THERE. AND IT IS THE IMAGE OF
JESUS DESCENDING INTO HELL. AS THE SCRIPTURE SAID,
HE WENT TO MAKE THE
[ speaking Hebrew ],
THE PROCLAMATION IN HELL
THAT THE CROSS WAS A TRIUMPHANT VICTORY
AND NOT A DEFEAT FOR GOD. AND SO THE WATER GOES
DOWN TO THE DEAD SEA. BUT IT IS
IN A LAND-LOCKED SYSTEM. IT EVAPORATES AGAIN AND THE
PREVAILING WINDS BLOW IT UP INTO THE NORTH AND IT FALLS AGAIN ON
MT. HERMON AND SO IT KEEPS ON
GOING AROUND. THE SALT CONTENT
IN THE DEAD SEA IS 25 PERCENT. THAT’S 10 TIMES
MORE THAN THE OCEAN. I WAS IN SALT LAKE CITY,
WE HAVE A GREAT SALT LAKE THERE. OH, YOU CAN DRINK
IT COMPARED TO THIS WATER. THAT’S ABOUT, I THINK,
FOUR PERCENT, SOMETHING
OF THAT NATURE. BUT IN ANY CASE,
THERE’S 50 PERCENT
MORE BROMINE IN THIS SEA. EVERYBODY FEELS GOOD
DOWN HERE BECAUSE BROMINE IS AN INGREDIENT IN VALIUM
AND IT IS IN THE AIR HERE AND IT TRANQUILIZES
EVERYBODY, THEY SAY. THERE IS 15 TIMES THE MAGNESIUM
HERE FOUND IN THE OCEAN. D AND YOU ARE BREATHING,
WHEN YOU ARE HERE, THE PUREST AIR IN THE WORLD. THERE’S NO QUESTION OF THAT. THERE’S NO BACTERIA. THERE’S NOTHING HERE. THERE’S NOTHING
AT ALL IN THE AIR. AND YOU CAN SEE MORE
STARS STANDING IN THE DESERT BY THE DEAD SEA THAN
ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD. THERE’S NOTHING IN THE
AIR TO INTERRUPT YOUR VIEW. WELL, THE HERODIANS,
PHARMACOLOGIST, PEOPLE IN THE TIMES OF KING HEROD, CAME DOWN
HERE AND THEY CULTIVATED PLANS TO MAKE DRUGS AND
PHARMACEUTICALS JUST
AS WE MAKE THEM TODAY. THE NABATEANS WHO
LIVED NEAR HERE, THEY BUILT THE WONDERFUL PETRA,
THE MONUMENT, BUILDINGS CARVED INTO SOLID ROCK WHICH
OUR TOURS ALWAYS GO TO VISIT. AND THEIR PEOPLE
DROVE THROUGH HERE AND THEY SAW THE DEAD SEA WATERS
AND THEY SAW THE BITUMEN RISE TO THE SURFACE
LIKE AN OIL SLICK, AND THEY SOLD THIS
BITUMEN TO THE EGYPTIANS, THE MASTER EMBALMERS
IN ANCIENT DAYS WHO USED IT IN THEIR EMBALMING PRACTICES
TO WRAP THEIR MUMMIES. AND THE NABATEANS MADE A REGULAR
BUSINESS OF TAKING THE MINERALS THERE AND IN THAT MANNER,
IN A SENSE, IT WAS STILL A HEALING PLACE IN A
PHARMALOGICAL PLACE. WE’LL BE BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.“THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD,
I SHALL GATHER YOU FROM THE
“PEOPLES AND ASSEMBLE YOU OUT
OF THE COUNTRIES WHERE YOU HAVE
“BEEN SCATTERED AND I WILL
GIVE YOU THE LAND OF ISRAEL,
“THE WILDERNESS AND
DRY LAND SHALL BE GLAD.
“THE DESERT SHALL REJOICE
AND BLOSSOM AS THE ROSE.
“YOU SHALL KNOW THAT
I AM THE LORD WHEN I BRING
“YOU INTO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.”THAT’S ISRAEL AS WE SEE IT AND
WE SEE A LOT OF IT AND WE SEE THE DEAD SEA ON EVERY TRIP. IN FACT, OUR
PEOPLE GO IN THE WATER. THE WATER THAT’S
IN THIS POOL BEHIND ME. THIS HOTEL’S ON THE SHORE
AND THEY BRING THE WATER FROM THE SEA INTO THE HOTEL FOR
THE CONVENIENCE OF THE GUESTS. AND THEY LAY
OUT HERE ON THE WATER. I SAY IT THAT WAY BECAUSE YOU CAN’T SINK IN
THE WATER OF THE DEAD SEA. YOU FLOAT LIKE A CORK. THE WATER IS SO SALTY
AND SO DENSE THAT YOU REALLY CAN’T SINK. AS A MATTER OF FACT,
THEY RENT A NECK PILLOW FOR YOU SO YOU CAN LIE BACK ON
THE WATER AND READ A NEWSPAPER, AND IF YOU TRY IT,
YOU’LL SEE THAT I’M RIGHT. IT’S AN AMAZING PLACE. A SPIRITUAL PLACE BESIDES
A KIND OF A HEALING PLACE. JEREMIAH SAYS
THIS IN JEREMIAH 33:6, GOD REMEMBERS HOW WHEN HIS
PEOPLE STARTED OUT HERE, THEY LIVED IN THE DESERT. THE ISRAELIS STARTED AS NOMADS;
ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB
WERE HERDSMEN. RATHER LIKE
THE BEDOUIN OF TODAY. THE BEDOUIN ARE ROUGHLY
EQUAL TO AMERICAN INDIANS. THEY LIVE IN TENTS. THEY MOVE FROM PLACE TO PLACE. THEY KEEP FLOCKS. THEY ARE LAND PEOPLE. THEY REALLY UNDERSTAND THE LAND. AND THE ISRAELIS
STARTED OUT THAT WAY. AND THEN, OF COURSE, THEY DID 40
YEARS WANDERING IN THE DESERT. THEY HAD TO HAVE
TOTAL RELIANCE ON GOD WHEN THEY WERE OUT IN THE SINAI. THIS JUDEAN DESERT IS HARSH
ENOUGH, BUT THE SINAI, IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO
SURVIVE ONE MONTH LET ALONE 40 YEARS WITHOUT HEALINGS FROM
GOD AND HEALINGS FROM THE EARTH. IN JOHN, WE READ A LOT ABOUT
JESUS’ HEALINGS AND HOW HE WAS RAISED UP LIKE THE SERPENT. AND THE PEOPLE IN THIS —
IN THIS KIND OF TERRITORY, DEPEND ON THE HEALING,
LIKE WHEN THE SERPENT
WAS RAISED UP THE WILDERNESS. THE ORIGINAL RECHABITES,
THESE WERE PEOPLE THAT LIVED DOWN IN THE WILDERNESS,
HERE IN ISRAEL, WHO WERE PRE-DATED THE ESSENES. WE KNOW THE ESSENES BECAUSE THEY CREATED
THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS. THEY ARE WHAT WE THINK
OF AS THE WILDERNESS PEOPLE. BUT THERE WERE
MORE ORIGINAL ABORIGINAL WILDERNESS PEOPLE THAN THOSE. THE RECHABITES CAME DOWN
HERE TO BE IN DIRECT COMMUNION WITH GOD AND EXPERIENCE THE
SPIRITUAL HEALING OF THE DESERT. THEY WERE DOWN HERE WORKING WITH
SCROLLS AND WORSHIPING GOD VERY DIRECTLY AND THEN,
THE ESSENES HAVE CAME. AND THEN PEOPLE
BUILT MONASTERIES. THERE ARE GREEK MONASTERIES AND
CATHOLIC MONASTERIES AND SO ON. MONKS GO HERE TO HAVE A PLACE TO
CONCENTRATE AWAY FROM THE WORLD, AWAY FROM THE NOISE. THE MOUNT OF TEMPTATION IS HERE
IN THE VALLEY NEAR JERICHO
NOT FAR FROM HERE. THERE THE LORD WAS TAKEN
AND TEMPTED OF THE DEVIL. THE SCAPEGOAT THAT THE ISRAELITE
NATION LET GO ONCE A YEAR FROM THE TEMPLE
ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT WAS LEFT OUT IN THIS WILDERNESS, OUT HERE AROUND THE
DEAD SEA TO DO AS IT MAY. IT WAS A SIGN OF THE THAT GOD
COULD KEEP THIS GOAT ALIVE IF THAT’S WHAT GOD CHOSE
WITH THE HEALING OF THE DESERT AND THE DEAD SEA. THIS IS NOT VERY SPIRITUAL,
BUT THE ISRAELIS ARE PROMOTING WHAT THEY CALL
THE “GREAT EMBRACE.” THEY ARE TRYING TO GET A HUNDRED
THOUSAND PEOPLE TO HOLD HANDS AROUND THE ENTIRE DEAD SEA. IF YOU CAN IMAGINE. THAT’S A VERY GREAT DISTANCE. AND THAT WILL
PROMOTE SOME SORT OF HEALING. IN REALITY,
THOSE PEOPLE WILL FEEL BETTER WHEN THEY ARE DONE BREATHING THIS PURE AIR AND
THIS BROMINE AND SO FORTH, BUT AS TO WHETHER IT WILL
HEAL THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD, WE’LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE. THE MEDICINAL PROPERTIES
OF THE DESERT ARE WELL KNOWN AND WE READ ABOUT THEM. OUT IN THE WILDERNESS,
IN NUMBERS 21:8 AND 9, THE SERPENT IS RAISED UP
ON THE STICK IN THE WILDERNESS AND THE PEOPLE LOOK
UPON IT WHO ARE POISONED AND THEY ARE MADE WELL. AND THIS SYMBOL,
THE SERPENT ON THE TREE IS THE MEDICAL SYMBOL
THAT WE USE IN AMERICA. YOU’VE SEEN IT. AND WE’RE CALLED TO STILL LOOK
UPON THAT RAISED UP FIGURE WHEN WE CONSIDER THE
MINISTRY OF THE LORD HIMSELF. CONSIDER JOHN 3:14. THE LORD ON A TREE
IS LIKE SIN CRUCIFIED, THE SERPENT ON THE
TREE THAT MOSES RAISED UP. THAT’S WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES. AND IN THE NEXT VERSE. IF YOU HAVE EVER SEEN
ANNFLGAME — THAT’S THE FAMOUS JOHN 3:16. AND SOMEONE’S ALWAYS
HOLDING IT UP ON A SIGN AT THOSE ATHLETIC CONTESTS. AND FURTHER,
IN JOHN 12:31, YOU KNOW, THE LORD
HAS JUST COME INTO JERUSALEM. HE’S JUST COME OVER
THE MOUNT OF OLIVES AND HE’S RIDING THE DONKEY. AND THERE’S QUITE A SCENE. SOME REALIZE WHO IT IS. HIS ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM AS
PROPHESIED FROM DAYS OF OLD. AND THOSE WHO HAD
READ THEIR SCRIPTURES
AND READ THE PROPHECIES, UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS
HAPPENING BEFORE THEIR EYES. BUT THEN IT SAYS. ON THAT DAY, MAYBE 10,000 PEOPLE WAVED THOSE PALM BRANCHES
ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES. WHEN THE PASTOR SAYS
THE JEWS MISSED THE MESSIAH, HE MUST NOT
HAVE READ THE CHAPTER, BECAUSE THOSE 10,000
PEOPLE WERE JEWS OF JERUSALEM WHO GREETED THE MESSIAH
AS THE KING WHO WAS TO COME. WHO SAID,
[ speaking Hebrew ]
“BLESSED IT HE WHO
COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.” AND YOU KNOW,
MATTHEW 21 PICTURES TWO GROUPS OF
JERUSALEM CITIZENS. ONE GROUP SAYS, “THIS IS
THE KING WHO WAS TO COME.” AND THE SECOND GROUP SAYS, “IS THIS NOT
THE PROPHET OF GALILEE?” WHAT AN UNDERESTIMATION. THIS FELLAH
THAT DOES THE WONDERS. THAT WALKS ON WATER THEY SAY,
THAT HEALS THE SICK AND RAISES THE DEAD THEY SAY, LET’S GO SEE THE SHOW. THOSE TWO GROUPS OF PEOPLE ARE
STILL ALIVE IN THIS WORLD. IT’S STILL ALIVE IN THE CHURCH. THOSE THAT SEE HIM AS THE KING AND THOSE THAT
MERELY SEE HIM AS A CURIOSITY. LIFTED UP LIKE THAT SERPENT. AND THIS HE SAID, SIGNIFYING
WHAT DEATH HE SHOULD DIE. AND HE WAS, IN FACT,
CRUCIFIED ON A TREE. YOU KNOW, IN THAT SCENE, HE ALMOST GETS A CUE
FROM HEAVEN TO DO WHAT HE DID. JUST AFTER THE
PHARISEE’S REMARK IT SAYS, IT’S AS IF IT’S A SIGNAL THAT
WHEN THE GREEKS ARE COMING, WHEN THE FOREIGN PEOPLE ARE
COMING TO HEAR THE GOSPEL THEN IT’S TIME
TO LEAVE IT TO THE APOSTLES. HE HAS DONE HIS WORK, BECAUSE
HIS WORK IS CIRCUMSCRIBED IN JOHN CHAPTER 10:5, 6. “I AM COME ONLY UNTO THE LOST
SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.” AND SO WHEN
THE LORD IS LIFTED UP, HIS MISSION IS COMPLETELY DONE. I WILL NEVER FORGOT THAT VERSE,
BECAUSE I ONCE PREACHED IN AN EPISCOPAL CHURCH,
A GIGANTIC CHURCH, I WAS ALMOST AFRAID TO TALK,
THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE. AND IT WAS ONE OF THOSE PULPITS
RAISED OFF OF THE FLOOR, WHERE YOU LOOK
DOWN AT THE CROWD. AND I FELT FUNNY ABOUT THAT. AND I WENT UP PRACTICING THE
FIRST LINES OF MY MESSAGE TO GET IT JUST PERFECT. AND WHEN I GOT UP THERE,
I LOOKED AT THE AUDIENCE AND BEHIND THE FACADE OF
THIS GIANT SPEAKER’S ROSTRUM WAS A LITTLE WOODEN CROSS AND ON
THERE WAS CARVED THE WORDS, “SIR, WE WOULD SEE JESUS.” TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT
THE HEALING ASPECTS OF THESE MINERAL RICH WATERS,
WE SPOKE WITH GIDEON, THE MANAGER OF THE HEALTH SPA OF
THE HYATT HOTEL OF THE DEAD SEA. THE SUBSTANCE IS SITTING
IN THE DEAD SEA AND UNIQUE TO THE DEAD SEA AND FIND IT ONLY HERE AND
THEY ARE BETTER BECAUSE OF THE LEVELS ARE
BETTER TO THE HUMAN BODY. WE TAKE THOSE
MINERALS AND SALTS. AND WE USE THEM IN
PRODUCTS FOR THE TREATMENTS. WE USE THEM AS THEY
ARE IN THE DEAD SEA POOLS, IN THE DEAD SEA ITSELF. THE SULPHUR, THE MUD,
WHICH IS NOT TREATED AT ALL. WE ONLY TAKE THE BIG
STONES OUT SO THAT IT IS COMFORTABLE ON THE BODY
AND THAT IT SMEARS RIGHT. BUT WE DON’T TREAT IT AT ALL. IT IS PURE MUD, THAT IS
10 OR 20,000 YEARS AGO. AND BECAUSE OF THE SUBSTANCE
IT IS GOOD FOR THE SKIN AND MUSCLES, TENDONS,
AND JOINTS OF THE BODY. WE HAVE THREE KINDS INDEED. AND ONE OF THEM IS A NATURAL MUD WHICH I SAID,
IS NOT TREATED AT ALL. AND THE OTHER TOOLS ARE THE SEA
WEED MUD AND THE ALOE VERA MUD. THE ALOE VERA MUD
HAS BEEN WASHED AND IT IS LESS CONCENTRATED WITH
SALTS AND MINERALS. AND THAT’S FOR PEOPLE
WHO HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN. THE SEAWEED MUD,
ON THE OTHER HAND, IS THE NATURAL MUD
ADDED WITH SEAWEED. AND WE ADD THE SEAWEED THAT
IS GROWING IN THE DEAD SEA. AND THAT’S THE ONLY THING THAT
IS GROWING IN THE DEAD SEA. IT IS MICRO-SEAWEED
AND DOES A LOT OF GOOD FOR PEOPLE WITH PSORIASIS,
PEOPLE WITH SKIN PIGMENTATION. THERE IS A LOT
BETTER COUNT IN IT. AND ALSO GOOD FOR DIGESTION AND
THEREFORE, WE ARE LOOKING NOW WHERE WE ARE USING
THE SEAWEED IN FOODS. THE POOL IN THE BACK,
THE DEAD SEA WATER POOL IS WATER WE PUMP STRAIGHT
AWAY FROM THE DEAD SEA. AND THAT’S FOR PEOPLE
WHO WOULDN’T LIKE TO GO COOK THEMSELVES IN THE SUN. BUT HAVE AN
AIR CONDITIONED POOL. BEHIND ME HERE IS THE SULPHUR
POOL WHICH IS NOT A SPRING, BUT IS FROM THE DEAD SEA,
BUT WE ARE BUYING THE SULPHUR FROM ANOTHER SPRING THAT’S
ABOUT A HUNDRED KILOMETERS AWAY FROM HERE BECAUSE OF THE
HIGH CONTENT OF SULPHUR IN IT. IT IS VERY GOOD FOR ONE’S SKIN. MANY PEOPLE THAT
SUFFER FROM PSORIASIS ARE COMING TO USE THE SULPHUR. IT IS MENDING
THE INNER CIRCULATION AND THE BUILDING OF SKIN CELLS. ACTUALLY PSORIASIS IS A DISEASE
WHERE SKIN CELLS ARE BUILDING
INCORRECTLY AND TOO MUCH. SULPHUR IS ABLE TO CORRECT THIS
AND MAKE THE SKIN SMOOTH AGAIN. THE DEAD SEA
IS NOT THE SAME AS SULPHUR. THERE ARE SOME
SUBSTANCES THAT ARE THE SAME. BROMIDE AND SULPHUR. WE HAVE BOTH
OF THEM IN THE DEAD SEA. BUT THERERE ARE MANY MINERALS
AND SALTS AND METALS BUT WE DON’T HAVE SULPHUR. AND YOU DON’T
FLOAT ON THE SULPHUR, YOU FLOAT ON THE DEAD SEA. FLOTATION IS
VERY GOOD FOR RELAXATION. VERY GOOD FOR MUSCLE TENSION AND HELPS ALSO
REJUVENATING THE SKIN. AND BECAUSE OF THE PROCESS THAT
HAS BEEN DONE ON THE SKIN, IT WASHES THE SKIN FROM WITHIN. A LOT OF FAT, A LOT OF
AMINO ACIDS AND DIFFERENT KINDS OF ACIDS THAT ARE SITTING
UNDERNEATH OR WITHIN, THE EPIDERMIS, THE SKIN
LAYER HAS BEEN WASHED OUT. OUR PILGRIM LADIES REAL LOVE THE
MINERAL WEALTH OF THE DEAD SEA. THEY MAKE IT
INTO WONDERFUL COSMETICS. THEY BUY A BRAND CALLED
[ speaking Hebrew ].
IT MEANS IN HEBREW, “LOVE.” THEY MAKE ALL SORTS OF
WONDERFUL LOTIONS AND SO FORTH. OUT OF THE STUFF
THAT COMES FROM THE DEAD SEA. IT SEEMS VERY
UNLIKELY WHEN YOU SEE THE PLACE. BUT THE COSMETICS
ARE MUCH APPRECIATED. AND MERCHANDISED
IN AMERICA ALL OVER. NOW, WE ARE GOING TO GO NORTH. WE ARE GOING TO A SMALL
VEGETARIAN SPA THAT IS IN THE ROLLING HILLS
OF NORTHERN GALILEE AND HAS A MAGNIFICENT VIEW
OF THE FAMOUS SEA OF GALILEE. WELL, SOME GARDENS
ARE JUST FOR GARDEN AND SOME OF THE BIGGER
GARDENS ARE THE HERBAL. WE GROW VEGETABLES AND FRUITS,
HERBAL VEGETABLES AND FRUITS THAT WE SERVE TO THE GUESTS. WE ALSO HAVE A BIG FARM WHERE
WE MANUFACTURE DAIRY PRODUCTS. CHEESES AND MILK. THIS IS A VEGETARIAN HOTEL. PEOPLE COME HERE FOR HEALTH. DO MAINLY ISRAELIS COME HERE? YES, MAINLY ISRAELIS,
BUT A LOT OF TOURIST, TOO. EVEN FROM AMERICA? YES. AND THEY WOULD
COME FROM HEALTH PURPOSES? THEY COME FOR HEALTH PURPOSES. THE ONES THAT KNOW
AND KEEP COMING BACK. THEY KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. THE ONES THAT COME HERE
FOR THE FIRST TIME, THEY ARE VERY SURPRISED,
THEY LOVE IT. IT’S A HEALTH HOTEL. IN THE SPA WE
GIVE OVER 40 TREATMENTS, DIFFERENT KINDS OF TREATMENTS. WE HAVE THE BEST
THERAPIST IN ISRAEL THAT CAN DEAL
WITH THE SPECIFIC PROBLEMS. BEST THERAPIST? YES, THEY DEAL WITH SPECIFIC
PROBLEMS THAT PEOPLE HAVE. HOW TO REDUCE TENSION, HOW TO
HELP PEOPLE IN A DIFFERENT WAY. WELL, IT’S SAD, BUT
UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS NOT THE PICTURE OF ISRAEL I
WOULD SEE IN THE UNITED STATES. WE SEE DUSTY ROADS. WE SEE STONES, ROCKS BEING
THROWN, BOMBS GOING OFF. THIS IS THE PICTURE THAT
THE NEWS PAINTS OF ISRAEL. YES, THAT IS VERY SAD. I’M VERY AWARE TO THAT. I DON’T KNOW IF A LOT OF
ISRAELIS ARE AWARE TO THAT. BUT IT IS VERY SAD. ARE YOU SAYING THAT ISRAELIS
ARE NOT AWARE OF THE IMAGE THAT THEY HAVE IN AMERICA? MANY ARE NOT AWARE. BUT IT’S A — IT’S VERY SAD. I MYSELF, LIVED IN THE STATES
BEFORE SO I KNOW AND I WAS VERY SURPRISED TO FIND OUT THE
PICTURE AND THE THOUGHT OF WHAT AMERICANS THINK ABOUT ISRAEL. IT’S VERY SAD. AND DIFFERENT AND THERE IS
A DIFFERENT SIDE TO ISRAEL.[ music playing ]WELL, ISRAEL IS A BUNCH OF
DIFFERENT KINDS OF BEAUTY, NOT AVAILABLE ON THE MEDIA,
I’M AFRAID. YOU KNOW, WE MADE THIS SERIES BECAUSE OF THE
CONSTANT SHOWING OF ISRAEL, SOME KIND OF WAR-TORN
LITTLE, UNIMPORTANT REPUBLIC. AND IN REALITY,
IT IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT. YOU KNOW,
WE’RE JUST A SMALL PROGRAM. IT’S HARD FOR US TO AFFORD THIS. BUT IT SIMPLY HAS TO BE DONE. THE WAY THE MEDIA,CNNAND
THE NETWORKS AND THE BRITISH
BROADCASTING COMPANY AND OTHERS PORTRAY ISRAEL,
IF ISRAEL WERE A PERSON, HE COULD SUE THEM FOR LIABLE. THIS KIND OF CONSTANT,
CONSTANT DENIGRATING
OF A WONDERFUL COUNTRY. LOOK, I’M NOT
TRYING TO BE BIASED. I HAVE TRAVELED THE
WHOLE MIDDLE EAST. I HAVE SEEN THE
BEAUTY OF THE GREEK ISLANDS. I’VE SEEN TURKEY. I’VE BEEN TO EGYPT EIGHT TIMES. I’VE LOOKED AT THE PYRAMIDS
ALL OVER THE PLACE. I’VE BEEN THROUGH
ALL OF THESE NATIONS. IT’S FAR AND AWAY THE FINEST,
THE BEST LOOKING, THE MOST PROGRESSIVE,
THE MOST ECONOMICALLY SECURE. AND IT’S JUST
NOT PORTRAYED THAT WAY AND IT’S JUST GETTING TIRESOME. THE TOURIST AND
THE PILGRIMS KNOW BETTER. IF YOU COME ON ONE OF OUR TOURS
AND WE SHOW YOU THE PLACE, YOU WILL NEVER BE FOOLED AGAIN. YOU WILL PROBABLY
NOT WATCHCNNAGAIN. IT IS A PROOF
OF PROPHECY FULFILLED. ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE, IT IS A VERY SPIRITUALLY
IMPORTANT PLACE. IF OUR SEMINARIES COULD MASTER
THAT, IT WOULD BE DELIGHTFUL. GOD IS WORKING THERE AND
THEY SOMEHOW IGNORE THE PLACE. THE PEOPLE THAT
COME FOR THE HEALING, THEY COME FROM
ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE HEALING IS EVERYWHERE. LET ME READ A WONDERFUL PASSAGE. THE OLD TESTAMENT
IS FULL OF SUCH SCRIPTURE. COME AND SEE IT FOR YOURSELF. OUR OFFER TONIGHT, THE JERUSALEM 3000 SERIES.
