In The Matrix the newly freed Neo learns about the only real alternative to life in the artificial reality of The Matrix. It is a city in the real world called Tsiyon (Zion). In the movie Tsiyon is a city at war with the unseen enemies of mankind fighting to free the minds of men. When I first saw this movie I found it amazing that the writers chose Tsiyon as the name for the last stronghold of truth, freedom and salvation on earth. For indeed, the Scriptures present the very same picture of a place of truth and freedom called Tsiyon. This name points back to the stronghold of David’s throne and points forward to the stronghold of the overcoming sons of God at the end of the age. This is the last great struggle between the forces of good and evil. This program looks to the Scriptures to begin to understand who the sons of Tsiyon really are who will come off victorious in that final battle!
Those of us who are redeemed by the blood of Messiah know something about how that happened. But do you ever wonder: WHY were you saved? Ephesians chapter two has the answer! This chapter has a number of answers, in fact, that are very different than many of us may have been taught. For example, you may have heard that the “saved” become part of the “Church.” Ephesians chapter two doesn’t say that! Instead it tells us that the “saved” from both the Gentiles and from Israel are all part of renewed Israel! Further, we are told this renewed Israel is “the one new man” created in Messiah Y’shua to represent Him in the world. Renewed Israel, this “one new man,” is also called “a Holy Temple” and you are meant to be one of the stones of that Temple, all “built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.” Why doesn’t everybody know that all the saved are to be part of Israel? One reason is because some of this chapter is incorrectly translated, in a way that leads away from Torah and Israel. In this program we will definitely straighten that out and help you to see the big picture so eloquently painted in Ephesians chapter two so you can get a better grasp than ever of where you fit into the picture!
