SID: Hello. Sid Roth here with Bob and Janie DuVall. There is a phrase called “The fullness of the gentiles” that most people don’t understand. And if I was a gentile that believed Jesus was the Messiah I would understand this. I would want to understand this. Bob, what does “fullness of the gentiles” mean to you?
BOB: Well it comes from, the timing of it comes from Luke, Chapter 21, where Jesus said, “Jerusalem will be trampled down by the gentiles until the time of the gentiles is fulfilled.” Well that’s important to me as a gentile to know what that timing is. And in 1967, Israel, in the Six-Day War, took possession back of Jerusalem, and it has been in Jewish hands. So the exciting thing is we are in the time of the fullness of the gentiles. We go to Romans 11 and Paul said what happens at that time. And he said, “The blindness that has been on many of the Jewish people comes off.” So we’re looking forward to, in this time now that we’re living in, the blindness coming off and multitudes of Jewish people coming to know their Messiah, Jesus.
SID: So what you’re saying is there’s two things to look for to know that we’re at the fullness of the gentiles. First, that Jerusalem would be in Jewish possession. Check. Jerusalem, ’67, as Bob said, in Jewish possession. Two, the spiritual scales come off of the eyes of Jewish people. Now I have lived, when I became a new Jewish believer in the Messiah, I have lived in the period of time where the spiritual scales came off the eyes of Jewish people. Every week I saw Jewish people coming to the Lord. But then it just gradually diminished. So I know the difference between normal times and when the spiritual scales are off. Something new is going on. Something so exciting it absolutely proves we’re at the fullness of the gentile age. It absolutely proves that the Messiah is ready to come back. And this is what I have seen. I rented a secular auditorium in Brighton Beach, New York, Brooklyn, New York. In a ten-block radius there’s 100,000 Soviet Jews. And we advertised, “Lecture on the Supernatural”. And Bob, you were there and I was shocked about how many people showed up to that lecture.
BOB: It was close to 400, Sid, and it was amazing. It was a lot of fun.
SID: But what was even more exciting, Bob, was in the middle of the lecture, a woman gets out of a wheelchair.
BOB: That’s right.
SID: And starts walking. Her attendant stands up and says, “I’ve never seen this woman.” And there was just a rush, a move of the Spirit of the Living God, and when that occurred, close to 400 Soviet Jews made professions of faith. The blindness is coming off.
JANIE: Okay, so now you’re talking about Soviet Jews, but how about plain, old American Jewish people?
SID: Okay, that’s the acid test, Janie. So I went to a suburb of Los Angeles, Oxnard, California. We rented a hotel room. We ran ads in the Jewish press saying, “Lecture on the Supernatural, no charge, and many people that attend the lecture will be healed.” Well something so wonderful happened. This is plain, old American Jews. Close to 400 of them showed up again. I mean, this is unprecedented. This to me is the fullness of the gentile age. And the minute I started speaking, God had what are known as supernatural words of knowledge, and I spoke them out, and something like 30 of them stood up. They didn’t know what was going on. It was just “Lecture on the Supernatural”. Nothing about religion, nothing about Jesus, nothing about God. “Lecture on the Supernatural”. They stood. Thirty of them stood up. They said they were instantly healed. I had their undivided attention and then I told them about the Messiah’s death, burial and resurrection. And 30 stood up in front of everyone and made professions of faith, 30 Jewish people. These are unprecedented.
JANIE: This is the sign of the times.
SID: I believe we are at the fullness of the gentile age. Get your seatbelt a little tightened. We’re going to really go for the greatest outpouring of miracles when you understand as we come back. Be back in just a moment.
