  • 00:08:15.207 --> 00:08:18.344
  • SUNDAY IS JUSTAROUND THE CORNER.
  • 00:08:18.444 --> 00:08:20.947
  • BUT WE ARE IN A VERYUNIQUE AND WEIRD SEASON
  • 00:08:21.047 --> 00:08:23.749
  • WHERE CHURCHES FOR THEMOST PART ARE NOT GOING
  • 00:08:23.849 --> 00:08:26.786
  • TO BE OPEN ON SUNDAY.
  • 00:08:26.886 --> 00:08:28.854
  • - WELL, MATT,YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:08:28.955 --> 00:08:30.890
  • WE'RE LIVING IN A -- IDON'T WANT TO GO WITH THE
  • 00:08:30.990 --> 00:08:36.329
  • WORD UNUSUAL ISTHE RIGHT WORD.
  • 00:08:36.429 --> 00:08:39.031
  • I BELIEVE THIS IS A TIMEIN HISTORY WHERE GOD IS
  • 00:08:39.131 --> 00:08:42.802
  • WARNING THE WORLD, ANDBECAUSE THIS VIRUS IS A
  • 00:08:42.902 --> 00:08:48.541
  • TSUNAMI THAT HAS AFFECTEDEVERY COUNTRY IN
  • 00:08:48.641 --> 00:08:51.877
  • THE WORLD.
  • 00:08:51.978 --> 00:08:53.112
  • I WAS SPEAKING TO LEBANONJUST BEFORE WE CAME ON
  • 00:08:53.212 --> 00:08:56.115
  • THIS PROGRAM, ANDTHEY'RE ON LOCK DOWN.
  • 00:08:56.215 --> 00:08:59.385
  • I'VE GOT TEAMS OFPEOPLE IN NORTH IRAQ.
  • 00:08:59.485 --> 00:09:02.088
  • THEY'RE ON LOCK DOWN.
  • 00:09:02.188 --> 00:09:03.823
  • EVERY NATION OF THE WORLDIS UNDER A SIMILAR ORDER.
  • 00:09:03.923 --> 00:09:10.196
  • AND WE'VE NEVER SEENANYTHING LIKE THIS, AND
  • 00:09:10.296 --> 00:09:12.732
  • OF COURSE CHURCHES ARE NOTPERMITTED TO MEET TOGETHER.
  • 00:09:12.832 --> 00:09:16.469
  • BUT I BELIEVE THIS EASTERTHERE MAY BE MORE PEOPLE
  • 00:09:16.569 --> 00:09:20.806
  • WORSHIPPING THAN WE'VEEVER SEEN IN MODERN
  • 00:09:20.906 --> 00:09:23.976
  • HISTORY.
  • 00:09:24.076 --> 00:09:25.478
  • AS PEOPLE ARE NOT ABLETO GO TO CHURCH, THEY'RE
  • 00:09:25.578 --> 00:09:27.246
  • GOING TO BE WATCHINGON TELEVISION.
  • 00:09:27.346 --> 00:09:29.682
  • FOR THOSE CHURCHES THATARE ABLE TO BROADCAST
  • 00:09:29.782 --> 00:09:32.585
  • OVER THE INTERNET, ITHINK THERE WILL BE
  • 00:09:32.685 --> 00:09:35.287
  • MORE PEOPLE.
  • 00:09:35.388 --> 00:09:36.422
  • AND I'VE HEARD THISALREADY FROM PEOPLE LIKE
  • 00:09:36.522 --> 00:09:38.557
  • GREG LAURIE AND OTHERSTHAT MORE PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:09:38.658 --> 00:09:40.226
  • TUNING IN THAN THEY'VEEVER HAD BEFORE.
  • 00:09:40.326 --> 00:09:43.129
  • MORE THAN THAT'SIN THEIR SERVICES.
  • 00:09:43.229 --> 00:09:45.164
  • SO THIS IS A GOOD THING,A POSITIVE THING.
  • 00:09:45.264 --> 00:09:47.767
  • HOW MUCH LONGER THIS ISGOING TO LAST WHO KNOWS.
  • 00:09:47.867 --> 00:09:51.170
  • BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT GODIS WARNING THE WORLD, AND
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:55.508
  • I BELIEVE THE WARNING ISTO REPENT, REPENT OF OUR
  • 00:09:55.608 --> 00:10:00.179
  • SINS, AND WE BETTER STARTLOOKING UP BECAUSE OUR
  • 00:10:00.279 --> 00:10:03.149
  • REDEMPTION ISDRAWING NIGH.
  • 00:10:03.249 --> 00:10:06.252
  • THIS IS I BELIEVE, MAYBENOT THE END BUT I BELIEVE
  • 00:10:06.352 --> 00:10:11.857
  • IT'S THE BEGINNING OFSOME SCHEDULE THAT WE SEE
  • 00:10:11.957 --> 00:10:15.561
  • OUTLINED IN MATTHEW 24,WE SEE IN REVELATIONS.
  • 00:10:15.661 --> 00:10:19.632
  • I BELIEVE WE'RE BEGINNINGTO SEE THE EARLY STEPS OF
  • 00:10:19.732 --> 00:10:24.270
  • JUST SOME OFTHESE THINGS.
  • 00:10:24.370 --> 00:10:25.471
  • HOW MANY MORE YEARS WEHAVE, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:10:25.571 --> 00:10:27.106
  • WE COULD HAVESEVERAL CENTURIES.
  • 00:10:27.206 --> 00:10:28.941
  • I DON'T KNOW, BUT IBELIEVE WE'RE IN THE LAST
  • 00:10:29.041 --> 00:10:31.610
  • HOURS OR THE MIDNIGHTCLOCK OF GOD'S CLOCK.
  • 00:10:31.711 --> 00:10:35.614
  • AND WE AS CHRISTIANSTHERE'S NO MORE
  • 00:10:35.715 --> 00:10:38.451
  • JOKING AROUND.
  • 00:10:38.551 --> 00:10:39.418
  • WE NEED TO BE SERIOUSABOUT CHURCH.
  • 00:10:39.518 --> 00:10:42.555
  • WE NEED TO BE SERIOUSABOUT OUR FAITH.
  • 00:10:42.655 --> 00:10:44.790
  • WE NEED TO LIVEFOR JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:10:44.890 --> 00:10:47.259
  • THERE'S A DYING WORLD,AND THEY'RE WATCHING US.
  • 00:10:47.359 --> 00:10:50.896
  • THEY'RE CYNICAL OF US,CYNICAL OF THE CHURCHES,
  • 00:10:50.996 --> 00:10:53.632
  • AND WE NEED TO MAKE SUREOUR VOICE
  • 00:10:53.733 --> 00:10:58.404
  • MATCHES OUR WALK.
  • 00:10:58.504 --> 00:11:00.539
  • SO THIS EASTER I HOPETHAT ALL OF US WILL DO A
  • 00:11:00.639 --> 00:11:05.711
  • SELF-EXAMINATION OF OUROWN LIVES AND IF THERE'S
  • 00:11:05.811 --> 00:11:07.947
  • SIN IN OUR HEART, SININ OUR LIVES WE'LL JUST
  • 00:11:08.047 --> 00:11:10.116
  • CONFESS IT AND ASK GODFORGIVENESS, AND LET'S BE
  • 00:11:10.216 --> 00:11:13.052
  • VESSELS THAT ARE FIT ANDREADY FOR HIM TO USE.
  • 00:11:13.152 --> 00:11:17.323
  • - THIS SEASON CAN ONLYBE COMPARED MAYBE IN MY
  • 00:11:17.423 --> 00:11:21.527
  • LIFETIME OF AT LEAST MEUNDERSTANDING IT AS 9 /11
  • 00:11:21.627 --> 00:11:26.165
  • AND TAKE USBACK TO 9/11.
  • 00:11:26.265 --> 00:11:32.838
  • YOUR FATHER DOCTOR BILLYGRAHAM WAS WITH US AT
  • 00:11:32.938 --> 00:11:37.877
  • THAT TIME, AND HOW DIDHE HANDLE --WHAT WAS HIS
  • 00:11:37.977 --> 00:11:43.048
  • IMMEDIATE REACTIONTO THESE KINDS
  • 00:11:43.149 --> 00:11:45.451
  • OF SITUATIONS?
  • 00:11:45.551 --> 00:11:46.619
  • KIND OF TAKE US TO SOMEOF THE INTERNAL THOUGHTS
  • 00:11:46.719 --> 00:11:51.290
  • AND WHAT WAS DOCTOR BILLYGRAHAM DOING IN THAT
  • 00:11:51.390 --> 00:11:54.960
  • CRISIS THAT WEEXPERIENCED A NUMBER OF
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:11:56.929
  • YEARS AGO?
  • 00:11:57.029 --> 00:11:58.297
  • - WELL, HE WAS AT HOMEIN NORTH CAROLINA WHEN
  • 00:11:58.397 --> 00:12:02.668
  • 9/11 HAPPENED.
  • 00:12:02.768 --> 00:12:04.770
  • AND OF COURSE ALL OF USWERE AFRAID, I THINK
  • 00:12:04.870 --> 00:12:10.442
  • CONCERNED THAT OURCOUNTRY WAS GETTING READY
  • 00:12:10.543 --> 00:12:13.279
  • TO GO TO WAR.
  • 00:12:13.379 --> 00:12:14.980
  • AND WE WEREN'T SURE WHATTHE OUTCOME WOULD BE.
  • 00:12:15.080 --> 00:12:19.618
  • OF COURSE YOU HEAR THEREPORTS OF THE WEAPONS OF
  • 00:12:19.718 --> 00:12:24.657
  • MASS DESTRUCTION AND SOFORTH AND THE CONCERN
  • 00:12:24.757 --> 00:12:27.726
  • THAT THE PRESIDENT ATTHAT TIME HAD FOR OUR OWN
  • 00:12:27.827 --> 00:12:30.529
  • SAFETY OF OUR COUNTRYHERE BUT ABROAD.
  • 00:12:30.629 --> 00:12:35.568
  • AND MY FATHER WASASKED BY GEORGE W.
  • 00:12:35.668 --> 00:12:40.706
  • BUSH IF HE WOULD BEWILLING TO COME TO
  • 00:12:40.806 --> 00:12:45.110
  • WASHINGTON TO THECATHEDRAL TO HAVE A
  • 00:12:45.211 --> 00:12:48.180
  • PRAYER SERVICEFOR OUR NATION.
  • 00:12:48.280 --> 00:12:51.717
  • AND MY FATHER WENT TOWASHINGTON, AND HELD THAT
  • 00:12:51.817 --> 00:12:55.988
  • IN THE NATIONALCATHEDRAL.
  • 00:12:56.088 --> 00:12:57.456
  • AND IT WAS SOMETHING THATI THINK SO MANY
  • 00:12:57.556 --> 00:13:01.794
  • AMERICANS WATCHED.
  • 00:13:01.894 --> 00:13:03.996
  • I KNOW THAT PEOPLE FOR ANUMBER OF WEEKS STARTED
  • 00:13:04.096 --> 00:13:08.100
  • GOING BACK TO CHURCH.
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:09.301
  • PEOPLE THAT HAVEN'T BEENTO CHURCH IN A LONG TIME.
  • 00:13:09.401 --> 00:13:11.637
  • PEOPLE BEGAN TO PRAY THATHADN'T PRAYED IN YEARS.
  • 00:13:11.737 --> 00:13:15.441
  • AND I THINK IT PULLEDAMERICA TOGETHER.
  • 00:13:15.541 --> 00:13:21.146
  • THE CORONA VIRUS ISCOMPLETELY DIFFERENT IN
  • 00:13:21.247 --> 00:13:24.516
  • THE SENSE THAT THE CORONAVIRUS IS WORLDWIDE WHERE
  • 00:13:24.617 --> 00:13:28.020
  • 9/11 AFFECTED US AND SOMEOF OUR ALLIES, BUT THIS
  • 00:13:28.120 --> 00:13:32.925
  • CORONA VIRUS IS WORLDWIDEAND IT'S KILLING PEOPLE
  • 00:13:33.025 --> 00:13:38.464
  • AT AN ALARMING RATE.
  • 00:13:38.564 --> 00:13:40.165
  • AND WHAT I TRY TO REMINDPEOPLE THAT THIS
  • 00:13:40.266 --> 00:13:42.501
  • ISN'T POLITICAL.
  • 00:13:42.601 --> 00:13:44.203
  • THE CORONA VIRUS DOESN'TKNOW A REPUBLICAN FROM
  • 00:13:44.303 --> 00:13:46.005
  • A DEMOCRAT.
  • 00:13:46.105 --> 00:13:47.306
  • IT KILLS REPUBLICANS,DEMOCRATS, INDEPENDENTS,
  • 00:13:47.406 --> 00:13:50.743
  • IT KILLSCHRISTIANS,
  • 00:13:50.843 --> 00:13:52.478
  • NON-CHRISTIANS, MUSLIMS,IT KILLS PERIOD.
  • 00:13:52.578 --> 00:13:58.484
  • AND IT IS A MURDERER ANDIT'S AFFECTING THE ENTIRE
  • 00:13:58.584 --> 00:14:01.253
  • WORLD BUT I BELIEVEAT THE SAME TIME IT'S
  • 00:14:01.353 --> 00:14:03.656
  • BEGINNING -I'M NOT QUITESURE I UNDERSTAND IT YET
  • 00:14:03.756 --> 00:14:06.225
  • BUT I BELIEVE IT'SBEGINNING TO HAVE PEOPLE
  • 00:14:06.325 --> 00:14:09.328
  • TO BEGIN TO FOCUSON GOD AGAIN.
  • 00:14:09.428 --> 00:14:11.363
  • AND I BELIEVE IN THE NEXTFEW WEEKS WE'LL SEE A
  • 00:14:11.463 --> 00:14:13.933
  • REAL TURN AROUND AS MOREAND MORE PEOPLE BEGIN TO
  • 00:14:14.033 --> 00:14:17.303
  • PRAY AND SEEK GOD.
  • 00:14:17.403 --> 00:14:18.938
  • AND I THINK FOR ALL OF USSPECIALLY FOR YOU, MATT

  • POINT MANY PEOPLE TO THELORD JESUS CHRIST IN
  • 00:14:27.579 --> 00:14:30.182
  • THESE COMING DAYS.
  • 00:14:30.282 --> 00:14:32.351
  • - FRANKLIN, THE REASONI ASK KIND OF ABOUT THAT
  • 00:14:32.451 --> 00:14:34.920
  • ERA OF 9/11 IS THECONTRAST THAT SEEMS TO BE
  • 00:14:35.020 --> 00:14:41.226
  • VISIBLE IN THE HEADLINESOF OUR NEWSPAPERS AND OUR
  • 00:14:41.327 --> 00:14:47.733
  • NEWS ORGANIZATIONS.
  • 00:14:47.833 --> 00:14:49.935
  • IN 9/11 THE HIGHEST VOICEIN THE COUNTRY, PRESIDENT
  • 00:14:50.035 --> 00:14:55.040
  • GEORGE W. BUSH, CALLED FORDOCTOR GRAHAM TO COME AND DO
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:58.911
  • THAT NATIONAL SERVICE.
  • 00:14:59.011 --> 00:15:01.146
  • NOW, 2020 SAMARITAN'SPURSE DELIVERS A HOSPITAL
  • 00:15:01.246 --> 00:15:09.555
  • TO NEW YORK AND THE MAYOROF NEW YORK WON'T EVEN GO
  • 00:15:09.655 --> 00:15:15.728
  • VISIT IT.
  • 00:15:15.828 --> 00:15:17.496
  • THERE'S A HUGE CHANGE INTHOSE 19, ALMOST
  • 00:15:17.596 --> 00:15:23.002
  • 20 YEARS.
  • 00:15:23.102 --> 00:15:24.169
  • JUST A HUGE -SPEAK TOTHAT SHIFT, WOULD YOU PLEASE?
  • 00:15:24.269 --> 00:15:28.907
  • - WELL, NO QUESTION OURCOUNTRY HAS SHIFTED SO
  • 00:15:29.008 --> 00:15:32.911
  • MUCH IN 20 YEARS.
  • 00:15:33.012 --> 00:15:35.047
  • TODAY WE HAVESAME SEX MARRIAGE.
  • 00:15:35.147 --> 00:15:38.350
  • WE DIDN'T HAVETHAT 20 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:15:38.450 --> 00:15:40.986
  • AND THESE BECOME BIGISSUES FOR THE PEOPLE
  • 00:15:41.086 --> 00:15:45.924
  • THAT ARE GAY AND LESBIANACTIVISTS, AND I BELIEVE
  • 00:15:46.025 --> 00:15:50.696
  • GOD GAVE MARRIAGE TOA MAN AND A WOMAN.
  • 00:15:50.796 --> 00:15:53.465
  • I DON'T BELIEVE IT'SBETWEEN 2 MEN OR 2 WOMEN.
  • 00:15:53.565 --> 00:15:55.200
  • THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:15:55.300 --> 00:15:56.802
  • THERE'S NOGRAY AREA HERE.
  • 00:15:56.902 --> 00:15:58.303
  • GOD MAKES IT CLEAR.
  • 00:15:58.404 --> 00:15:59.905
  • HE MADE US MALE ANDFEMALE, SO I'M A LITTLE
  • 00:16:00.005 --> 00:16:03.208
  • -- I MEAN, I SPEAK WHATTHE BIBLE TEACHES.
  • 00:16:03.308 --> 00:16:07.112
  • I'M NOT ANTI GAY.
  • 00:16:07.212 --> 00:16:10.616
  • I'M NOT HOMOPHOBIC BUT IWILL SHARE WHAT THE WORD
  • 00:16:10.716 --> 00:16:14.319
  • OF GOD SAYS, SO IF YOUDO THAT TODAY, IT WASN'T
  • 00:16:14.420 --> 00:16:18.657
  • LIKE THIS 20 YEARS AGOBUT TODAY PEOPLE CONDEMN
  • 00:16:18.757 --> 00:16:23.262
  • YOU FOR SPEAKINGWHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:16:23.362 --> 00:16:26.231
  • SO I'M NOT GOING TOBACK UP ON THAT MATT OR
  • 00:16:26.331 --> 00:16:28.167
  • LAURIE, I'M NOT GOING TOCHANGE WHAT THE WORD OF
  • 00:16:28.267 --> 00:16:31.737
  • GOD SAYS TO BEPOLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 00:16:31.837 --> 00:16:33.639
  • I'M JUST GOING TO TELLPEOPLE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:16:33.739 --> 00:16:37.810
  • SO THE MAYOR OF NEW YORKI WAS ACCUSED OF THAT
  • 00:16:37.910 --> 00:16:42.047
  • WE'D DISCRIMINATE, THATWE'D NOT ALLOW GAY PEOPLE
  • 00:16:42.147 --> 00:16:43.982
  • TO COME INTOOUR HOSPITAL.
  • 00:16:44.083 --> 00:16:46.151
  • WELL, THAT'SJUST NOT TRUE.
  • 00:16:46.251 --> 00:16:48.620
  • WE RECEIVE EVERYBODY.
  • 00:16:48.720 --> 00:16:49.655
  • I DON'T CARE WHO SHOWSUP, A MUSLIM, A HINDU, A
  • 00:16:49.755 --> 00:16:52.891
  • BAPTIST OR APRESBYTERIAN, I DON'T CARE.
  • 00:16:52.991 --> 00:16:56.095
  • IF THEY'RE SICK, WE'REGOING TO GIVE THEM THE
  • 00:16:56.195 --> 00:16:57.496
  • BEST TREATMENTWE POSSIBLY CAN.
  • 00:16:57.596 --> 00:17:00.432
  • WE DON'T ASK QUESTIONSAND RACE, AND GENDER
  • 00:17:00.532 --> 00:17:03.969
  • IDENTITY, THESE QUESTIONS WEJUST DON'T ASK.
  • 00:17:04.069 --> 00:17:06.638
  • WE JUST ACCEPT EVERYBODY,AND WE KNOW THAT THE LORD
  • 00:17:06.738 --> 00:17:08.607
  • JESUS DID THIS.
  • 00:17:08.707 --> 00:17:10.275
  • WHEN SOMEONE CAME TO HIMAND THEY WERE SICK, HE
  • 00:17:10.375 --> 00:17:12.611
  • DIDN'T ASK THEMHOW HE GOT SICK.
  • 00:17:12.711 --> 00:17:14.613
  • HE DIDN'T ASK WHAT SEXUALPRACTICES THEY WERE
  • 00:17:14.713 --> 00:17:17.483
  • ENGAGED IN.
  • 00:17:17.583 --> 00:17:18.617
  • HE JUST USED HIS POWERSAS THE SON OF GOD TO HEAL
  • 00:17:18.717 --> 00:17:21.120
  • THEM, AND THEN HE WOULDTELL THEM GO AND SIN NO
  • 00:17:21.220 --> 00:17:24.957
  • MORE, SO I THINK TODAY ATOUR HOSPITAL WE
  • 00:17:25.057 --> 00:17:30.462
  • WELCOME EVERYBODY.
  • 00:17:30.562 --> 00:17:31.630
  • WE TREAT EVERYBODY THESAME, AND THE WORLD HAS
  • 00:17:31.730 --> 00:17:35.334
  • CHANGED, BUT IT'SINTERESTING, THE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:35.434 --> 00:17:36.835
  • OF NEW YORK HAVEWELCOMED US.

  • AND YOU'VE GOT A BIG OLDFARMER GUY WHO SAID HE WOULD

  • NEVER COME IN THE DOOR,BROUGHT HIS WIFE INTO TOWN
  • 00:28:36.928 --> 00:28:40.532

  • REMEMBER THE LIBRARYHAD JUST CLOSED.
  • 00:29:18.036 --> 00:29:22.173
  • I HAD JUST FINISHED THEINTERVIEW, AND OFF IN THE
  • 00:29:22.273 --> 00:29:24.642
  • CORNER WAS A WOMAN WHO WASNOT PART OF OUR STAFF, BUT
  • 00:29:24.742 --> 00:29:29.280
  • SHE HADN'T LEFT YET, AND SHEWAS STANDING THERE,
  • 00:29:29.380 --> 00:29:32.350
  • AND SHE HAD TEARS COMINGDOWN HER FACE.
  • 00:29:32.450 --> 00:29:34.786
  • SO WE WERE LEAVING, SO SHECAME UP TO SPEAK TO ME.
  • 00:29:34.886 --> 00:29:39.324
  • SHE SAID, MR. GRAHAM, I'M AFLIGHT ATTENDANT, AND I CAME
  • 00:29:39.424 --> 00:29:45.196
  • TO CHARLOTTE A DAY EARLY,AND I CAME BECAUSE I WANTED

  • I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCEDANYTHING LIKE IT.
  • 00:30:06.818 --> 00:30:09.287
  • AND WHAT WE TRIED TO DO WHENWE BUILT THE LIBRARY, ROY,
  • 00:30:09.387 --> 00:30:12.023
  • IS WE WANTED THIS TO BE LIKEMY FATHER'S LAST CRUSADE.
  • 00:30:12.123 --> 00:30:17.862
  • WE WANTED PEOPLE TO COME INAND HEAR THE GOSPEL AND TO

  • BE ABLE TO MAKE ACOMMITMENT TO CHRIST.
  • 00:30:22.066 --> 00:30:24.602
  • SO EVERY DAY, PEOPLE ARE,PEOPLE GET SAVED JUST LIKE

  • THE FARMER WITH BIBOVERALLS WHO SAID HE
  • 00:30:27.739 --> 00:30:31.309

  • OKAY I'LL COME.AND HE MET CHRIST.
  • 00:30:34.746 --> 00:30:37.382
  • AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE WE'RESPECIAL OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:30:37.482 --> 00:30:40.351
  • IT'S BECAUSE THE GOSPEL,IT'S THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL
  • 00:30:40.451 --> 00:30:44.188
  • THAT IS IN THE LIBRARY, ANDTHE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL,

  • HE'S WORRIED ABOUTTHE CORONA VIRUS.
  • 00:30:55.533 --> 00:30:57.135
  • HE WANTED TO GO HOMEAND BE WITH HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:30:57.235 --> 00:30:59.103
  • WHEN I ASKED HIM WHERE HEWOULD GO IF HE DIED TODAY,
  • 00:30:59.203 --> 00:31:02.140
  • WOULD HE GO TO HEAVEN?
  • 00:31:02.240 --> 00:31:03.808
  • HE SAID, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:31:03.908 --> 00:31:05.343
  • AND HE SAID HEWANTED TO KNOW.
  • 00:31:05.443 --> 00:31:07.011
  • AND SO I WAS ABLE TOGO THROUGH THE PLAN OF

  • AND I SAID, I'M GOING TOLEAD YOU THROUGH ALL OF THAT.

  • GRANDMOTHER HAD A VISIONFOR, MATT AND LAURIE, WAS A
  • 00:33:57.748 --> 00:34:00.051
  • PLACE WHERE PEOPLE COULDCOME AND STUDY GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:34:00.151 --> 00:34:02.353
  • THEY BELIEVED THAT GOD'SWORD WAS THE ANSWER TO

  • GRANDFATHER, AND SHE WOULDGO MINISTER TO MY GRANDADDY.
  • 00:34:18.169 --> 00:34:20.505

  • SIT THERE AND READ SCRIPTURETO MY GRANDADDY,
  • 00:34:23.241 --> 00:34:25.676
  • AND ALWAYS A GREATENCOURAGEMENT TO HER.

  • CAROLINA AT THE COVE. AND IT'S ABEAUTIFUL PLACE.
  • 00:34:43.161 --> 00:34:45.696
  • IT'S KIND OF LIKEA RETREAT CENTER.
  • 00:34:45.796 --> 00:34:48.933
  • WE HAVE LODGING THERE.
  • 00:34:49.033 --> 00:34:51.335

  • EVENTS THERE, AS WELL.
  • 00:34:56.207 --> 00:34:57.842
  • AND TO BE HONEST, IT'S BEENA LITTLE BIT SLOW LATELY
  • 00:34:57.942 --> 00:35:00.244
  • BECAUSE THE CORONA VIRUS --WE'VE HAD TO SHUT EVERYTHING
  • 00:35:00.344 --> 00:35:04.415
  • DOWN, SO WE HAVEN'T HAD MUCHGOING ON, BUT IT'S
  • 00:35:04.515 --> 00:35:06.817
  • MADE US RE-THINK THINGS.
  • 00:35:06.918 --> 00:35:09.020
  • AND SOME OF THE THINGS THATWE'VE RETHOUGHT, INSTEAD OF
  • 00:35:09.120 --> 00:35:11.289

  • I WAS A PASTOR, I USED TOBE A PASTOR OF A CHURCH IN

  • SPEAK FROM GOD'S WORD.
  • 00:35:39.317 --> 00:35:41.319
  • THERE'S ONLY ONE TEXTBOOK ATTHE COVE, AND
  • 00:35:41.419 --> 00:35:43.721
  • THAT IS THE BIBLE.
  • 00:35:43.821 --> 00:35:45.656
  • THE BIBLE IS WHAT CHANGESEVERYTHING, SO THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:35:45.756 --> 00:35:47.592
  • WE WANT TO PROMOTE IS THEBIBLE AND TO LIFT UP THE
  • 00:35:47.692 --> 00:35:49.794
  • NAME OF CHRIST.
  • 00:35:49.894 --> 00:35:52.129
  • SO THAT'S ONE OF MY GREATPRIVILEGES TO DO IS TO HELP
  • 00:35:52.230 --> 00:35:54.832
  • LOOK OVER THAT PLACE.
  • 00:35:54.932 --> 00:35:56.834

  • - WELL, I DO CRUSADES.
  • 00:36:04.041 --> 00:36:06.544
  • MY GRANDFATHER, WECALLED THEM CRUSADES.
  • 00:36:06.644 --> 00:36:08.713
  • MY DAD DOES FESTIVALS. I DOCELEBRATIONS. THEY'RE ALL THE
  • 00:36:08.813 --> 00:36:11.048
  • SAME THING. WE JUST CALL THEMDIFFERENT THINGS.
  • 00:36:11.148 --> 00:36:13.884
  • BUT MY EVANGELISTICMEETINGS, WE JUST FINISHED
  • 00:36:13.985 --> 00:36:17.154
  • UP THIS PAST YEAR, THE LASTTWO WERE UP IN CANADA AT A
  • 00:36:17.255 --> 00:36:19.590
  • PLACE CALLED BELLEVILLE,WHICH IS IN ONTARIO, AND
  • 00:36:19.690 --> 00:36:23.160
  • THEN ALL THE WAYUP IN BAKER LAKE.
  • 00:36:23.261 --> 00:36:26.097
  • NOW, BAKER LAKE IS THEGEOGRAPHICAL CENTER OF CANADA.
  • 00:36:26.197 --> 00:36:29.867
  • IT WAS A TOWN OFABOUT 1800 PEOPLE.
  • 00:36:29.967 --> 00:36:34.238
  • WE GO TO BIG CITIES ANDSMALL LITTLE VILLAGES LIKE
  • 00:36:34.338 --> 00:36:37.108
  • THIS ONE IN BAKER LAKE.
  • 00:36:37.208 --> 00:36:38.876
  • BUT BAKER LAKE IS RIGHTAT THE ARCTIC CIRCLE.
  • 00:36:38.976 --> 00:36:41.379
  • THAT IS THE GEOGRAPHICALCENTER OF CANADA.
  • 00:36:41.479 --> 00:36:44.215
  • IT SHOWS YOU HOW BIGOF A PLACE CANADA IS.
  • 00:36:44.315 --> 00:36:46.617
  • BUT WE GOT TO PREACH THEGOSPEL THERE, AND WE SAW
  • 00:36:46.717 --> 00:36:48.986
  • SO MANY PEOPLE COMETO KNOW CHRIST.
  • 00:36:49.086 --> 00:36:51.455
  • WE GOT TO PRAY OVER PEOPLEAND JUST PRAY FOR HEALING,
  • 00:36:51.555 --> 00:36:54.592
  • PHYSICAL HEALING, SPIRITUALHEALING, EMOTIONAL HEALING
  • 00:36:54.692 --> 00:36:57.461
  • FOR THE PEOPLE THERE,AND THE SAME WAS
  • 00:36:57.561 --> 00:37:00.464
  • TRUE IN BELLEVILLE.
  • 00:37:00.564 --> 00:37:02.466
  • AND THEN THIS YEAR, I WASSUPPOSED TO HAVE THREE
  • 00:37:02.566 --> 00:37:05.169
  • EVENTS THIS SPRING, ANDTHANKS TO THE CORONA VIRUS,
  • 00:37:05.269 --> 00:37:07.805

  • SO HOPEFULLY, THINGS WILL,I SAY, GET BACK TO NORMAL.
  • 00:37:16.514 --> 00:37:19.083
  • I'M NOT SURE IF THEY'LL EVERGET BACK TO WHAT NORMAL.
  • 00:37:19.183 --> 00:37:21.786
  • AND PART OF ME SAYS I HOPETHINGS NEVER DO
  • 00:37:21.886 --> 00:37:23.421
  • GET BACK TO NORMAL.
  • 00:37:23.521 --> 00:37:25.256
  • I SAY THIS, I KNOW IT'SSERIOUS FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:37:25.356 --> 00:37:28.259

  • WAY IT WAS BEFORE. WE'VEDID NOT NEW THINGS.
  • 00:37:37.601 --> 00:37:39.603
  • WE'VE TRIED NEW THINGS.
  • 00:37:39.704 --> 00:37:41.439
  • AS A MATTER OF FACT, BECAUSEOF ONE OF MY CELEBRATIONS
  • 00:37:41.539 --> 00:37:43.841
  • WAS CANCELED, SO I COULDN'TGO DOWN THERE AND PREACH
  • 00:37:43.941 --> 00:37:46.577

  • ONLINE AND JUST SAY, I'MJUST GOING TO PREACH ONLINE.
  • 00:37:49.647 --> 00:37:52.817

  • THAT'S GOT TO BE BIGGER THANTHEM AND THIS
  • 00:38:09.133 --> 00:38:11.168
  • VIRUS AT THE SAME TIME.
  • 00:38:11.268 --> 00:38:12.803
  • SO PEOPLE ARELOOKING FOR ANSWERS.
  • 00:38:12.903 --> 00:38:14.705
  • AND SO WE JUST GOT UP THERE,AND WE PREACHED,
  • 00:38:14.805 --> 00:38:16.440
  • I PREACHED FOR 15 MINUTES.

  • SO HOPEFULLY THOSEARE IN THE FALL.
  • 00:38:48.606 --> 00:38:50.608
  • HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL GETBACK TO THOSE THINGS WHERE I
  • 00:38:50.708 --> 00:38:52.143
  • CAN GET BACK TO THEM.
  • 00:38:52.243 --> 00:38:54.245

  • AT THE BILLY GRAHAMASSOCIATION.
  • 00:39:06.490 --> 00:39:08.359
  • IT'S ABOUT EVANGELISM.
  • 00:39:08.459 --> 00:39:10.060
  • THAT'S WHAT WE DO, AND WE'REGOING TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:39:10.161 --> 00:39:11.896
  • I BELIEVE THAT WE CAN LOOKFOR NEW WAYS AND NEW THINGS,

  • AMERICA, AND WE WENT TOECUADOR TO SERVE YEARS AGO
  • 00:40:35.779 --> 00:40:38.983

  • WE HAVE VOLUNTEERS, THEITALIAN ARMY, THE ITALIAN
  • 00:42:34.498 --> 00:42:36.800
  • VOLUNTEER FORCE IS OUTHELPING UNLOAD THIS AIRCRAFT
  • 00:42:36.900 --> 00:42:41.138
  • AND SET UP THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:42:41.238 --> 00:42:42.973
  • AND WITHIN A COUPLEOF HOURS,
  • 00:42:43.073 --> 00:42:44.608
  • WE WERE RECEIVING PATIENTS.
  • 00:42:44.708 --> 00:42:46.343
  • IT'S A 68 BED FIELDHOSPITAL WITH A TEN BED
  • 00:42:46.443 --> 00:42:50.014
  • I.C.U. CAPABILITY ANDRESPIRATORS.
  • 00:42:50.114 --> 00:42:51.915
  • THIS IS WHAT THE ITALIANS SODESPERATELY NEEDED WAS THIS
  • 00:42:52.016 --> 00:42:55.152
  • RESPIRATORY CAPABILITY WITHOUR RESPIRATORY SPECIALIST.
  • 00:42:55.252 --> 00:42:58.022
  • AND WE'VE HAD THESE PATIENTSON VENTILATORS,
  • 00:42:58.122 --> 00:43:00.357
  • BUT IT'S COMPLETELY FULL. EVERYBED'S BEEN FULL.
  • 00:43:00.457 --> 00:43:03.394
  • BUT ONE THING SAMARITAN'SPURSE'S HAS ALREADY BEEN A
  • 00:43:03.494 --> 00:43:06.263
  • PART OF A MIRACLE; WATCHINGPEOPLE COME INTO THIS
  • 00:43:06.363 --> 00:43:09.600
  • HOSPITAL AND ALREADYLEAVING FULLY RECOVERED.
  • 00:43:09.700 --> 00:43:12.536
  • WE'VE HAD OVER 160 PATIENTSIN THIS FIELD HOSPITAL IN
  • 00:43:12.636 --> 00:43:16.106
  • ITALY, AND WE'RE ALREADYSEEING PATIENTS
  • 00:43:16.206 --> 00:43:18.308
  • WALK AWAY RECOVERED.
  • 00:43:18.409 --> 00:43:20.210
  • WE'VE ALSO SEENDECISIONS FOR CHRIST.
  • 00:43:20.310 --> 00:43:22.613
  • THIS IS WHEN WE SEND OUTTHIS FIELD HOSPITAL, OUR
  • 00:43:22.713 --> 00:43:24.982
  • BILLY GRAHAM CHAPLAINS, OURRAPID RESPONSE CHAPLAINS
  • 00:43:25.082 --> 00:43:27.117
  • FROM THE BILLY GRAHAMASSOCIATION, HAVE GONE AND
  • 00:43:27.217 --> 00:43:29.687
  • DEPLOYED WITH THEM.
  • 00:43:29.787 --> 00:43:31.522
  • AND THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITYFOR THESE CHAPLAINS TO SHARE
  • 00:43:31.622 --> 00:43:33.657
  • CHRIST WITH THOSE AND TOPRAY WITH INDIVIDUALS.
  • 00:43:33.757 --> 00:43:35.959
  • BUT WHEN THESE PATIENTSASK WHY ARE YOU HERE?
  • 00:43:36.060 --> 00:43:39.196
  • WHY ARE YOU LOVING ME? WHY AREYOU SENDING THIS HOSPITAL?
  • 00:43:39.296 --> 00:43:42.399
  • THIS GIVES A PLATFORM TOCHAPLAINS TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:43:42.499 --> 00:43:44.735
  • SPEAK AND SHARE.
  • 00:43:44.835 --> 00:43:46.570
  • AND THEN ONE DAY WE WILLSHUT DOWN THIS HOSPITAL WHEN
  • 00:43:46.670 --> 00:43:48.639
  • THE NEED IS OVER, AND THESEPEOPLE THAT HAVE MADE
  • 00:43:48.739 --> 00:43:51.442
  • DECISIONS FOR CHRIST, THECHAPLAINS ARE PLUGGED IN
  • 00:43:51.542 --> 00:43:53.777
  • WITH THE LOCAL CHURCH ANDTHEY'RE ENCOURAGING
  • 00:43:53.877 --> 00:43:55.479
  • THE LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:43:55.579 --> 00:43:57.081
  • AND THEN THIS CHURCH WILLALSO COME IN AND CONTINUE TO
  • 00:43:57.181 --> 00:43:59.416
  • MINISTER AND DISCIPLE THESENEW DECISIONS FOR CHRIST.
  • 00:43:59.516 --> 00:44:01.552
  • THIS IS TWO PLACES WHERE THEMINISTRY COMES TOGETHER.
  • 00:44:01.652 --> 00:44:05.122
  • I LOOK AT WHAT NEW YORK CITYWAS HAVING AND WHAT IT WAS
  • 00:44:05.222 --> 00:44:08.826
  • FACING, AND IT WAS QUICKLYABOUT TO BECOME THE
  • 00:44:08.926 --> 00:44:10.828
  • EPICENTER UP HEREIN NORTH AMERICA.
  • 00:44:10.928 --> 00:44:12.696
  • AND SO WE ONCE AGAIN REACHEDOUT TO DAD AND LOOKED AT THE
  • 00:44:12.796 --> 00:44:15.365
  • NUMBERS AND REVIEWED IT WITHHIM AND SAID, DAD,
  • 00:44:15.466 --> 00:44:17.868
  • NEW YORK IS THE NEXT PLACETHAT NEEDS IT.
  • 00:44:17.968 --> 00:44:20.204
  • THIS IS OUR LAST CAPABILITY,IT IS OUR LAST HOSPITAL.
  • 00:44:20.304 --> 00:44:22.439
  • IF WE'RE GOING TO DEPLOY IT,THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE
  • 00:44:22.539 --> 00:44:24.942
  • THE NEED IS GREATEST. AND DADSAID TO REACH OUT.
  • 00:44:25.042 --> 00:44:27.778
  • IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE, THERESPONSE WE GOT FROM LOCAL
  • 00:44:27.878 --> 00:44:30.280
  • OFFICIALS, BUT ESPECIALLYMOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL IS THE
  • 00:44:30.380 --> 00:44:33.984
  • HOSPITAL THAT WE PARTNERWITH THERE IN NEW YORK CITY,
  • 00:44:34.084 --> 00:44:36.720
  • AND THEY HAVE BENT OVERBACKWARD TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
  • 00:44:36.820 --> 00:44:40.290
  • BUT AS SOON AS OUR TRUCKSARRIVED THERE IN NEW YORK
  • 00:44:40.390 --> 00:44:43.694
  • CITY AT MOUNT SINAI,VOLUNTEERS CAME OUT, LOCAL
  • 00:44:43.794 --> 00:44:46.096
  • PEOPLE WERE COMING OUT INTOTHE PARK AND ASSISTING US.
  • 00:44:46.196 --> 00:44:49.633
  • I WENT TO SCHOOL, I WENTTO COLLEGE IN NEW YORK.
  • 00:44:49.733 --> 00:44:53.437
  • I WAS JUST UP THE HUDSONRIVER AT WEST POINT,
  • 00:44:53.537 --> 00:44:56.406
  • AND I REMEMBER 911. THAT WAS MYJUNIOR YEAR.
  • 00:44:56.507 --> 00:44:58.876
  • BUT WHAT I REMEMBER ABOUTNEW YORKERS IS THAT THEY
  • 00:44:58.976 --> 00:45:01.411
  • CAME OUT, ANDTHEY WERE UNIFIED.
  • 00:45:01.512 --> 00:45:03.647
  • AND THIS CITY IS UNIFYINGAROUND ONE ANOTHER TO FIGHT
  • 00:45:03.747 --> 00:45:07.518
  • THIS VIRUS, AND THEY'VE COMEOUT TO SUPPORT US, TO HELP
  • 00:45:07.618 --> 00:45:10.420
  • US OUT IN SETTINGUP THIS HOSPITAL.
  • 00:45:10.521 --> 00:45:12.389
  • AND JUST LIKE ITALY, WEQUICKLY PUT IT TOGETHER,

  • AND WE'RE ALREADYRECEIVING PATIENTS.
  • 00:45:15.225 --> 00:45:17.261
  • AND WE EXPECT EVERY BED INTHIS HOSPITAL, 68 BED FIELD

  • I.C.U. WOULD RESPIRATORS, ANDIT'S BEING FILLED UP QUICKLY.
  • 00:45:24.902 --> 00:45:27.905
  • BUT WE'VE ALREADY BEENTOLD FROM THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:45:28.005 --> 00:45:30.607
  • ADMINISTRATORS THERE,ESPECIALLY FROM BROOKLYN,

  • WE'RE TAKING THE LOAD OFF,AND WE'RE SEEING HOSPITALS

  • FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:48:52.242 --> 00:48:54.077
  • THE LAST FEW DAYS OF JESUS'MINISTRY, HE WAS IN BETHANY,
  • 00:48:54.177 --> 00:49:01.785
  • AND HE WAS AT THEHOUSE OF A LEPER.
  • 00:49:01.885 --> 00:49:06.590
  • HIS NAME WAS SIMON THELEPER, AND YOU KNOW, PEOPLE
  • 00:49:06.690 --> 00:49:10.460
  • GET NICKNAMED SOMETIMES.
  • 00:49:10.560 --> 00:49:12.629
  • I KNOW A FELLOW THAT CUTBOTH OF HIS TOES OFF,
  • 00:49:12.729 --> 00:49:15.932
  • AND THEY JUST CALLEDHIM TWO TOES.
  • 00:49:16.033 --> 00:49:17.868
  • SO HE HAD A NAME,JUST TWO TOES.
  • 00:49:17.968 --> 00:49:20.404
  • THIS WAS SIMON THE LEPER,AND HE WAS NO LONGER A LEPER.
  • 00:49:20.504 --> 00:49:24.574
  • OBVIOUSLY, JESUS HAD HEALEDHIM, AND HAD HE PUT HIS
  • 00:49:24.674 --> 00:49:27.611
  • FAITH IN JESUS, AND JESUS ISAT HIS TABLE,
  • 00:49:27.711 --> 00:49:30.947
  • AND THEY WERE RECLINING.
  • 00:49:31.048 --> 00:49:32.883
  • AND HE'S GOT HIS FRIENDS,AND HE LOVES THE PEOPLE OF
  • 00:49:32.983 --> 00:49:34.718
  • BETHANY, THEY LOVED HIM.
  • 00:49:34.818 --> 00:49:36.620
  • AND THESE PEOPLE WERE THEREAROUND THE TABLE WHEN A
  • 00:49:36.720 --> 00:49:39.723
  • WOMAN COMES IN -- WE KNOWFROM THE GOSPEL OF

  • JOHN IT WAS MARY -- ANDSHE ANOINTS HIM.
  • 00:49:44.161 --> 00:49:50.033
  • AND SHE PUTS THIS EXPENSIVEPERFUME ON HIM, AND JUDAS
  • 00:49:50.133 --> 00:49:54.938
  • AND SOME OF THE OTHERS WERECRITICAL, WHAT A WASTE.
  • 00:49:55.038 --> 00:49:58.608
  • AND JESUS SAYS, SHE HASPREPARED MY BODY FOR A BURIAL.
  • 00:49:58.708 --> 00:50:06.883
  • AND OF COURSE A FEW DAYSLATER, JESUS CHRIST WENT TO
  • 00:50:06.983 --> 00:50:12.122
  • THE CROSS WHERE HE SUFFEREDAND DIED ON A
  • 00:50:12.222 --> 00:50:16.560
  • CROSS FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:50:16.660 --> 00:50:18.962
  • JESUS CAME NOT TO CONDEMN THEWORLD, BUT TO SAVE THE WORLD.
  • 00:50:19.062 --> 00:50:24.134
  • AND HE CAME TO SAVE THEWORLD FROM SIN, AND THE

  • WE'VE ALL COME SHORTOF GOD'S GLORY.
  • 00:50:29.139 --> 00:50:31.041
  • THE WAGES OF SIN, THEPENALTY, IS DEATH.
  • 00:50:31.141 --> 00:50:33.176
  • BUT GOD SO LOVED THE WORLDTHAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY
  • 00:50:33.276 --> 00:50:37.447
  • BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVERBELIEVE IN HIM SHOULD NOT
  • 00:50:37.547 --> 00:50:42.085
  • PERISH BUT SHOULD HAVEEVERLASTING LIFE.
  • 00:50:42.185 --> 00:50:44.454
  • JESUS CHRIST CAME TO SAVE. HEDIDN'T COME TO CONDEMN.
  • 00:50:44.554 --> 00:50:48.525
  • HE CAME TO SAVE ME, YOU,EVERYBODY WHO'S WATCHING.
  • 00:50:48.625 --> 00:50:52.329
  • HE CAME TO SAVE US FROM SIN,AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE

  • WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH.ALL OF US ARE GUILTY.
  • 00:50:55.432 --> 00:50:59.469
  • WE'VE ALL COMMITTED SIN.
  • 00:50:59.569 --> 00:51:01.404
  • WE'VE ALL DONE WRONG INGOD'S EYES, YET GOD SENT HIS
  • 00:51:01.505 --> 00:51:08.245
  • SON TO SAVE US FROM THE SIN.
  • 00:51:08.345 --> 00:51:11.081
