Sid: My guest David Herzog and David’s been a guest a number of times on Messianic Vision, but he has a brand new book it’s literally just off the press, it’s called “Ancient Portals of Heaven.” And he maintains that because of anti-Semitism a lot of these portals have been stolen from the church stolen from believers. But I can tell you something David, there is a portal that’s going on right now on our appointment because there is a flow of the anointing of the presence. One of the things that you talk about in your new book is the Elisha anointing, explain.
David: Yeah, well we know that everyone teaches about the Elijah anointing, but Elisha is supposed to get at least a double portion. So we are in the last days so I think we need all the help that we can get. We would love to have a double portion, or as much as we can of God and of His mantle and of His anointing and His glory. So basically Elisha followed Elijah all the way to the end and got a double portion. The book of Malachi the last book that we see in the Old Testament before Jesus appears in the New Testament, Yeshua says that “I will turn the hearts of the Father’s back to the children and the children back to the Fathers less I strike the land with a curse.” And it also says that I will restore the Spirit of Elijah will be restored; so connecting Elijah with restoring the hearts of the children back to the parents, parents back to the children. The Lord began to show me that actually is the hearts of the children back to their parents, is not just spiritual fathers like I don’t know like Charles Finney or the great revival of Azusa or beyond. It goes all the way back to our forefathers the Israelites, the Jewish apostles and as we do that and honor Israel, basically who gave us the gospel, we can get that double portion. In the Bible the first born usually got the double portion, the blessing. And so even to this day I believe Jewish people, many of them on the earth today are very very blessed in many many ways, there’s still that double portion blessing. Gentiles can tap into the double portion blessing if they would honor and bless and help the Jewish people in Israel. Ruth is a great example, she was Gentile but she followed her Jewish mother-in-law and helped her. Brought her all the way to where she needed to go and she met Boaz and married Boaz. Boaz said, “I’m going to give you double the grains, double the favor, double than the other servant girls because you have helped this Jewish woman.” So there is a double portion blessing I believe will come on your ministry, on miracles, on finance, on everything if we would begin to honor our spiritual parents, Israel and the Jewish people, by praying for their salvation, helping them in any way possible, loving them, protecting them, it would be a double portion blessing that would come. And I believe our ministry we are seeing that already, we are seeing favor that we didn’t pray for that just comes on us because we do that principal.
Sid: That’s what I want to ask you are you seeing an increase in the amount of miracles and amount of salvations, the amount of God’s glory in recent days?
David: Oh, it’s over the top especially the last three years we’ve been doing more and more as far as blessing Israel. Going to Israel, seeing Israeli’s coming to the Lord, seeing healings and miracles, supporting ministries that help Israel. And in three years we’ve had more favor and blessing and miracles and acceleration, open doors than we have in our entire life. I’ve noticed that I have been increasing my help toward blessing Israel our ministry just in the few. One example of this I was in Israel one time and I was there ministering and people were getting touch and healed and saved and within 24 hours a TV network came up to me and said, “We’d like you to be on TV and do you have a show?” And we had been praying God told us that we would have a TV ministry but it only happened as we really began to really really bless Israel and it became chasing us we weren’t trying to chase open doors, it began chasing us now we’re able to reach millions more people than when we were before in blessing Israel.
Sid: Give me an idea, you recently got back from Denver where you had extended meetings in Hawaii, tell me some of the things that happened there.
David: Okay we just got back from Denver a few days ago and we’ve seen all kind of miracles, tumors disappearing so a girl with cystic fibrosis. We saw another girl with cerebral palsy she couldn’t move her arm or lift anything out of it and suddenly she could. In Hawaii, we just had that last week, besides the Hawaiians getting saved, a miracle in and of itself that local Hawaiians coming to the Lord. We had just crazy things begin to happen, so many things they’ve never even heard of gold teeth, fillings or crowns in that Island Maui that’s what they told me. It’s not something that’s happened in Maui, and we had so many peoples’ teeth turning to gold it caused such a stir in the entire Island. People kept talking and talking, by the last night people were coming in by Ferry from Oahu, they’re flying in from California, coming in from different parts of the Island. God will use the signs and the wonders as a bait to bring people in. And once they came in they said “Actually the glory and presence of God is so awesome here this is better than signs and wonders.” The signs a lot of times is just to bring the unbelievers in, or to get people stirred up or just an excuse to get them in the building where the glory is.
Sid: David, we’ve been talking about Israel and about the Jewish people. Where do the Arabs fit into what God is showing you?
David: Oh, they have a big big part to play. The Bible does say that the Gentiles are to make the Jewish people jealous back to their Messiah. I don’t know of any other people group that would make the Jewish people more jealous if they also have the glory of God, and visiting them more than their enemies. Then the present day Muslims, Arabs getting saved and then having the glory hit them with signs and wonders and miracles. And then them celebrating the feasts, imagine that and then God showing up that would probably get them really jealous that their enemies start having the glory of God. And it would make some of them turn back to the Glory of God and they would make some of them turn back to their Messiah also.
Sid: Are you having meetings with Arabs?
David: Oh yes.
Sid: And what type of results are you getting?
David: Incredible results we are getting incredible results in Dubai and normally they didn’t expect more than a few hundred people and 1,000 people showed up the first night. We just for Dubai was pretty amazing and signs, wonders, miracles began to show up healings. But what happened a month before that some of these people from Dubai came to Israel, the pastor came with a lot of his church. And I told him that if you will go and bless Israel God will bless your ministry in Dubai. And he came over and they had the most incredible visitations of God probably of any other group on this trip. When they got back to Dubai their ministry just suddenly began to open up, skyrocket signs and wonders, people began to come, and I came a month later and something began to happen. The glory of God just began to hit and explode, and when they came they had to come through Jordan to get into Israel. When the Israeli soldiers saw them coming in they were so amazed they said, “You are coming from Dubai, wow we’ve never seen people come in.” They began to greet them and give them chocolate, warm greetings, “Welcome to Israel, we’re happy you took the risk and came.” So something is happening. In Zachariah it’s talking about the Feast of Tabernacles being restored, the Messiah will restore the Feasts of Tabernacles every nation will have to come up the Feast in Jerusalem even Egypt. It says. “If Egypt does not come up I will not pour rain on that nation.” So we are going to see and we’re starting to see Arab nations coming to the Lord also doing the Feasts of God. The Lord began to tell me wow, “In the millennium whoever doesn’t come up doesn’t get rain.” I wonder if I celebrate the Feasts now will I get rain in my life and ministry in personal and spiritual. And that’s why we begin going to see if God will pour rain on our life if we would come up to the Feast and just worship Him. And so we are seeing that happen but especially the Muslims, they’ve turned to the Lord, they start celebrating these feasts I believe that it will cause such a holy jealousy on the Jewish people that maybe that are not so spiritual or not really seeking their Messiah. And seeing Arab people get saved, healed, miracles, loving Israel and celebrating the Feasts with God showing up at the Feast. I think that that would provoke them to jealousy.
Sid: And you know one of the greatest One New Man examples that I can think of is a Jew and a Arab one in Messiah loving each other. I mean talk about the whole world is trying to orchestrate peace in the Middle East; that’s the only peace that we’ll ever have.
David: Oh yeah, that’s very, very, very powerful when Jewish and Gentile come together and there is a lot of things happening in Israel.
Sid: You see, I think that is a portal also when Jewish believers in Jesus come together with Gentile believers in Jesus. Now someone asked a question you keep talking about blessing Israel, what ways do you actually follow to bless Israel?
David: Well, of course we know about humanitarian and standing up for Israel. But I believe the number one greatest blessing you can do to bless Israel is what Paul said is “Leading them to their Jewish Messiah,” that’s the number one. Give them food, that’s great, give them clothing, that’s great, but we should stand up for them and support them. If they die and they don’t know the Messiah, then still it’s not eternal. So the number one would be leading them back to the Messiah that will be the greatest greatest blessing you could do for any Jewish person.
Sid: You know God gave me a revelation on that recently; if you give humanitarian aid to Israel you would be blessed in the natural. But if you lead a Jewish person to the Lord you’ll be blessed in the natural and in the eternal, I mean such a deal. I’d much rather God say’s “He who wins souls is wise.”
David: You get two for the price of one.
Sid: You got it. Now tell me a little about your brand new book “The Ancient Portals of Heaven,” what is it about?”
David: Oh wow, it’s about a lot of things, but I taught about the ancient pathways that open up the glory in the ways that most believers don’t know we lost. We talk about what Elijah knew, Moses, the Apostles, Enoch even all the way to Adam. What the ancient peoples know that opened up the heavens that we lost today. They even talk about some really interesting things about the Chinese, the Koreans and the Polynesians that in the very very beginnings they all had the same account of Adam and Eve, the flood, Babel and they began to worship the God of just heaven and earth, at the very beginning before all the false religions came in, and they knew that there was a need for the blood sacrifice. So real quick instance is that they went to Korea, the missionaries went to Korea and they said, “You need to know Jesus.” And they said, “We don’t know who this foreign God is and they studied their Korean culture and realized the word for creator of heaven and earth was Hananim, the God of heaven and earth to them. And they came back and said your God Hananim requires a blood sacrifice, that they knew, but He sent His Son with the blood sacrifice for all mankind and they were all ready doing sacrifices as it was similar to the Israelites and they received the Lord and to this day that’s one of the most powerful Christian nations in Asia is Korea.
Sid: In your book you have even the most interesting things about Cherokee Indians in America. The book is called “The Ancient Portals of heaven.”
