  • 00:08:10.947 --> 00:08:13.783
  • If someone passes away,they will not die alone.
  • 00:08:13.783 --> 00:08:18.154
  • I think in the middleof pandemics,
  • 00:08:19.255 --> 00:08:20.756
  • we don't back down.
  • 00:08:20.756 --> 00:08:22.959
  • God wants us out there,
  • 00:08:22.959 --> 00:08:23.926
  • ministering to peoplein His name.
  • 00:08:23.926 --> 00:08:26.228
  • (Flores)We want to share
  • 00:08:28.464 --> 00:08:29.732
  • the Good News,the gospel, just,
  • 00:08:29.732 --> 00:08:32.001
  • that there is hopein the midst of this chaos.
  • 00:08:32.001 --> 00:08:35.671
  • (Graham)We surround them with love,compassion, care,
  • 00:08:38.341 --> 00:08:42.244
  • and it became justa great opportunity,
  • 00:08:42.244 --> 00:08:45.915
  • not just in Central Park,but around the country,
  • 00:08:45.915 --> 00:08:48.784
  • to share with peoplethat they're not alone.
  • 00:08:48.784 --> 00:08:51.253
  • (Lawmaster)With the whole landscapeof the COVID virus,
  • 00:08:54.390 --> 00:08:58.027
  • it was earth-shaking to me.
  • 00:08:58.027 --> 00:09:00.630
  • You saw the cities, states,being shut down...
  • 00:09:00.630 --> 00:09:04.867
  • and here I was by myself so...
  • 00:09:06.235 --> 00:09:08.471
  • It's a hard thing to look atwhen you,
  • 00:09:10.306 --> 00:09:13.009
  • you have no oneand you have no hope.
  • 00:09:13.009 --> 00:09:15.911
  • Almost exactly a year agoI had a hemorrhagic stroke.
  • 00:09:20.916 --> 00:09:25.621
  • It was a horrific eventand it made me stop...
  • 00:09:25.621 --> 00:09:32.561
  • it stopped mefor the first time ever.
  • 00:09:32.561 --> 00:09:34.630
  • I was a workaholic
  • 00:09:36.098 --> 00:09:37.500
  • and I was ignoringmy relationship
  • 00:09:37.500 --> 00:09:39.568
  • with my wifeand my kids.
  • 00:09:39.568 --> 00:09:41.570
  • Eventually, I had gone throughtwo or three marriages.
  • 00:09:43.439 --> 00:09:47.076
  • Here I was,I was alone.
  • 00:09:47.076 --> 00:09:49.979
  • I was completely alone.
  • 00:09:49.979 --> 00:09:52.348
  • I was in the hospital,
  • 00:09:52.348 --> 00:09:54.717
  • then I started thinking about,you know,
  • 00:09:54.717 --> 00:09:56.318
  • "What if you don't make it?"
  • 00:09:56.318 --> 00:09:58.087
  • When I was released
  • 00:09:58.087 --> 00:10:00.990
  • from the hospital,I came back to the house,
  • 00:10:00.990 --> 00:10:03.159
  • I actually said to myself,
  • 00:10:03.159 --> 00:10:04.627
  • "What if you areon the brink of eternity?"
  • 00:10:04.627 --> 00:10:07.797
  • You're gonna stand before Godand say what?
  • 00:10:09.231 --> 00:10:13.202
  • I was preparing to die.
  • 00:10:13.202 --> 00:10:16.005
  • I really wanted to understandabout the Bible, about Christ.
  • 00:10:16.005 --> 00:10:19.508
  • But then the pandemic hit.
  • 00:10:21.777 --> 00:10:23.546
  • And there I was,I was alone again,
  • 00:10:26.415 --> 00:10:29.518
  • not only distancedfrom my church,
  • 00:10:29.518 --> 00:10:32.822
  • I was distanced from everything.
  • 00:10:32.822 --> 00:10:35.391
  • And everything stopped.
  • 00:10:35.391 --> 00:10:38.327
  • (Graham)The isolation,
  • 00:10:43.799 --> 00:10:45.968
  • I think, has been maybeone of the hardest things.
  • 00:10:45.968 --> 00:10:48.637
  • People all acrossthe country
  • 00:10:48.637 --> 00:10:50.172
  • were shut in at home.
  • 00:10:50.172 --> 00:10:51.741
  • Some of our team,
  • 00:10:51.741 --> 00:10:52.708
  • we began to think aboutwhat we could do,
  • 00:10:52.708 --> 00:10:55.111
  • and we thought about whatwould happen if we had
  • 00:10:55.111 --> 00:10:57.713
  • an Easter service,like a sunrise service
  • 00:10:57.713 --> 00:10:59.849
  • something fromCentral Park.
  • 00:10:59.849 --> 00:11:01.784
  • I thought, "I'd like todo this on television."
  • 00:11:01.784 --> 00:11:03.919
  • And I calledMichael W. Smith.
  • 00:11:03.919 --> 00:11:06.088
  • He says, "I want toknow if you'll come
  • 00:11:07.456 --> 00:11:09.225
  • "and lead worshipand do the music."
  • 00:11:09.225 --> 00:11:10.793
  • And I just said,
  • 00:11:10.793 --> 00:11:12.962
  • "Yes." I mean, I didn'teven blink an eye.
  • 00:11:12.962 --> 00:11:15.931
  • And I remembergetting off the phone going
  • 00:11:15.931 --> 00:11:17.266
  • "I wonder how my wife'sgonna feel about this."
  • 00:11:17.266 --> 00:11:19.401
  • (Graham)Wrote Rupert Murdoch,the owner of Fox News,
  • 00:11:20.569 --> 00:11:22.838
  • and just told himwhat we wanted to do
  • 00:11:22.838 --> 00:11:24.607
  • and would he give methirty minutes.
  • 00:11:24.607 --> 00:11:27.009
  • And he responded immediately,said, "Yes."
  • 00:11:27.009 --> 00:11:29.845
  • So the pandemicopened up doors
  • 00:11:29.845 --> 00:11:32.715
  • and created an audience thatwe wouldn't have had otherwise.
  • 00:11:32.715 --> 00:11:36.152
  • There was justa small film crew.
  • 00:11:37.453 --> 00:11:38.888
  • There's a pianoand a podium,
  • 00:11:38.888 --> 00:11:40.823
  • that's all there was.
  • 00:11:40.823 --> 00:11:42.458
  • The Lord Jesus Christis risen!
  • 00:11:45.761 --> 00:11:47.630
  • He's not dead,He's alive, and we're here
  • 00:11:47.630 --> 00:11:49.865
  • to celebrate Easterthis Sunday, 2020.
  • 00:11:49.865 --> 00:11:53.035
  • (Lawmaster)He was so surreal.
  • 00:11:53.035 --> 00:11:54.804
  • In the backgroundyou could see the hospital
  • 00:11:54.804 --> 00:11:56.672
  • in operation; people beingwheeled in, wheeled out.
  • 00:11:56.672 --> 00:12:00.176
  • It was really
  • 00:12:00.176 --> 00:12:02.478
  • earth-shaking for me.
  • 00:12:02.478 --> 00:12:04.680
  • (Graham)Jesus knows how to take
  • 00:12:05.548 --> 00:12:06.849
  • those hopeless situations
  • 00:12:06.849 --> 00:12:08.384
  • and turn them around.
  • 00:12:08.384 --> 00:12:09.418
  • And He can do thatfor your life.
  • 00:12:09.418 --> 00:12:11.086
  • He can turn the hopelesssituation of your life
  • 00:12:11.086 --> 00:12:13.989
  • 180 degrees,He can turn it around.
  • 00:12:13.989 --> 00:12:16.158
  • You say, "But, Franklin,what do I have to do?"
  • 00:12:16.158 --> 00:12:18.160
  • First you have tobe willing to repent.
  • 00:12:18.160 --> 00:12:20.729
  • There I was,I was preparing to die,
  • 00:12:20.729 --> 00:12:24.900
  • and I looked backat my life
  • 00:12:24.900 --> 00:12:26.802
  • and looked back at allthe people that I had hurt,
  • 00:12:26.802 --> 00:12:28.904
  • and I needed to repent,to be sorry for what I've done.
  • 00:12:28.904 --> 00:12:33.475
  • I saw through every marriageand through every scenario
  • 00:12:33.475 --> 00:12:37.847
  • I wasn't alone.
  • 00:12:37.847 --> 00:12:40.516
  • Jesus never left me,He never left me.
  • 00:12:40.516 --> 00:12:43.085
  • (Graham)And Jesus Christ took our sins,
  • 00:12:43.085 --> 00:12:45.087
  • your sins, my sins,He went to the cross,
  • 00:12:45.087 --> 00:12:47.489
  • and on the crossHe shed His blood
  • 00:12:47.489 --> 00:12:49.258
  • for the sins of mankind.
  • 00:12:49.258 --> 00:12:51.527
  • And on the third dayGod raised His Son to life.
  • 00:12:51.527 --> 00:12:53.629
  • Jesus Christ is not dead,He's alive!
  • 00:12:53.629 --> 00:12:55.698
  • And He'll come intoeach and every heart
  • 00:12:55.698 --> 00:12:57.700
  • that's willing to trust Himby faith.
  • 00:12:57.700 --> 00:13:00.102
  • (Lawmaster)For the first time
  • 00:13:01.170 --> 00:13:02.404
  • I understood whatJesus had done for me.
  • 00:13:02.404 --> 00:13:05.507
  • I wanted Christto be in my life
  • 00:13:05.507 --> 00:13:08.210
  • and I wanted to live
  • 00:13:08.210 --> 00:13:10.379
  • but for a different reason,not for myself.
  • 00:13:10.379 --> 00:13:13.048
  • He loved me enough to
  • 00:13:14.383 --> 00:13:17.686
  • stop me and my lifehas changed forever.
  • 00:13:17.686 --> 00:13:20.422
  • I've gotten intothe Word of God.
  • 00:13:20.422 --> 00:13:23.025
  • I'm getting more involvedwith the church.
  • 00:13:23.025 --> 00:13:25.060
  • I want to grow,I want to bear fruit.
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:27.363
  • He had a plan for me.
  • 00:13:27.363 --> 00:13:29.231
  • And a plan for good,not evil,
  • 00:13:29.231 --> 00:13:31.367
  • a plan to give mea future and a hope.
  • 00:13:31.367 --> 00:13:33.736

  • one more day...or like, fifteen years,
  • 00:13:34.770 --> 00:13:39.375
  • God gave me

  • during this timeis a great privilege.
  • 00:16:08.123 --> 00:16:09.658
  • You know, the Bible says,
  • 00:16:09.658 --> 00:16:10.959
  • "Let us not become weary
  • 00:16:10.959 --> 00:16:12.428

  • by his brotherswho were jealous of him,
  • 00:16:26.742 --> 00:16:28.911
  • only for God to put Josephin charge of all of Egypt

  • a few years laterand when a great famine
