  • PASTOR SAID IT WAS IN TERMS OF
  • 00:03:38.230 --> 00:03:40.120
  • THE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE, BUT
  • 00:03:40.120 --> 00:03:41.280
  • IT WAS ALSO AN INCREDIBLE
  • 00:03:41.280 --> 00:03:44.080
  • GEOPOLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE
  • 00:03:44.080 --> 00:03:45.220
  • EVENT BECAUSE IT WAS THE
  • 00:03:45.220 --> 00:03:46.110
  • RECOGNITION OF THE MOST POWERFUL
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.140
  • THAT ISRAEL NOT ONLY HAD A RIGHT
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:51.210
  • TO EXIST, WHICH HARRY TRUMAN WAS
  • 00:03:51.210 --> 00:03:52.180
  • THE FIRST MAJOR PRESIDENT TO

  • GAME-CHANGER THEN.
  • 00:03:57.040 --> 00:03:59.010
  • WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP DID WAS A
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:01.060
  • GAME-CHANGER TODAY.
  • 00:04:01.060 --> 00:04:02.160
  • MOVING THE EMBASSY SAID TO THE
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:04.190
  • REST OF THE WORLD, "WE DON'T
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:07.030
  • JUST RECOGNIZE THE STATE OF
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:09.010
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:09.250
  • WE RECOGNIZE THE CITY OF
  • 00:04:09.250 --> 00:04:10.130
  • JERUSALEM AS THE RIGHTFUL,
  • 00:04:10.130 --> 00:04:11.140
  • LONGSTANDING, HISTORICAL,
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:14.220
  • INDIGENOUS HOME OF THE JEWISH
  • 00:04:14.220 --> 00:04:16.150
  • PEOPLE, AND THE CAPITAL.
  • 00:04:16.150 --> 00:04:17.270
  • THAT'S NOT A HEAVY LIFT IN THE
  • 00:04:17.270 --> 00:04:19.270
  • GREAT SENSE OF THE WORD BECAUSE
  • 00:04:19.270 --> 00:04:21.230
  • NO OTHER PEOPLE HAVE EVER
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:23.170
  • CLAIMED JERUSALEM AS ITS

  • CAPITAL, EVER, NOT EVER.
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:26.240
  • SO WHEN PEOPLE SAY, "WELL, THE
  • 00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:29.070
  • PALESTINIANS OUGHT TO HAVE THEIR
  • 00:04:29.070 --> 00:04:30.160
  • CAPITAL THERE," WHY?
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:31.120
  • THEY NEVER HAD ONE THERE BEFORE,
  • 00:04:31.120 --> 00:04:32.040
  • SO WHY WOULD THEY HAVE IT?
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:32.230
  • THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVER
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:34.060

  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL STANDPOINT.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:43.040
  • THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:45.010
  • THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:46.190
  • RECOGNIZE WHAT THE VERY STONES
  • 00:04:46.190 --> 00:04:49.050

  • WE, IN A MODERN WORLD,

  • ACKNOWLEDGE-- NOT AFFIRM.
  • 00:04:54.280 --> 00:04:57.140
  • IT'S NOT OURS TO AFFIRM.
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:59.050
  • IT'S OURS TO ACKNOWLEDGE, AND
  • 00:04:59.050 --> 00:05:01.010
  • THAT SENDS A MESSAGE TO THE REST
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:02.260
  • OF THE WORLD THAT, IF THE
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:04.060

  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:41.290
  • TBN SET JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:46.220 --> 00:11:48.100
  • WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:11:48.120 --> 00:11:49.150
  • - AMBASSADOR FRIEDMAN: THANK YOU, TOM.
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:50.090
  • IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE.
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:51.160
  • - WELL, WE'RE CELEBRATING SOMETHING TODAY.
  • 00:11:51.180 --> 00:11:53.090
  • TODAY MARKS THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOVE
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:56.080
  • OF THE US EMBASSY FROM TEL AVIV TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:11:56.100 --> 00:12:00.110
  • TELL ME WHY IT TOOK SO LONG.
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:03.200
  • NUMEROUS PRESIDENTS HAD TALKED ABOUT THIS MOVE,
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:05.280
  • BUT IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED.
  • 00:12:06.000 --> 00:12:07.200
  • WHAT WAS THE CATALYST THAT BROUGHT PRESIDENT
  • 00:12:07.220 --> 00:12:10.260
  • TRUMP TO ACKNOWLEDGE IT AND TO MAKE IT HAPPEN?
  • 00:12:10.280 --> 00:12:13.040
  • - WELL, THE CATALYST -- YOU ANSWERED THE QUESTION.
  • 00:12:13.060 --> 00:12:16.110
  • THE CATALYST IS PRESIDENT TRUMP.
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:18.050
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:12:18.070 --> 00:12:21.050
  • THAN HIS PREDECESSORS.
  • 00:12:21.070 --> 00:12:22.140
  • HE STARTS OFF WITH WHAT'S THE TRUTH AND WHAT'S THE
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:26.080
  • RIGHT THING TO DO, TWO SIMPLE QUESTIONS.
  • 00:12:26.100 --> 00:12:29.070
  • THE TRUTH IS THAT JERUSALEM HAS BEEN THE
  • 00:12:29.090 --> 00:12:32.010
  • CAPITOL OF ISRAEL FOR 3.000 YEARS SINCE KING
  • 00:12:32.030 --> 00:12:35.140
  • DAVID UNITED THE KINGDOMS OF ISRAEL AND JUDAH RIGHT
  • 00:12:35.160 --> 00:12:39.140
  • BEHIND WHERE WE'RE SITTING.
  • 00:12:39.160 --> 00:12:40.270
  • THAT'S THE TRUTH.
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:43.020
  • AND IN THE 3.000-YEAR HISTORY OF JERUSALEM, IT
  • 00:12:43.040 --> 00:12:46.180
  • HAS BEEN A CITY OF GREAT CONFLICT FOR MANY YEARS.
  • 00:12:46.200 --> 00:12:49.020
  • ONLY SINCE 1967 WHEN JERUSALEM WAS REUNITED AS
  • 00:12:49.040 --> 00:12:53.230
  • A SINGLE CITY, AN UNDIVIDED CITY UNDER
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:12:56.040
  • ISRAELI RULE, ONLY UNDER THAT RULE HAS JERUSALEM
  • 00:12:56.060 --> 00:12:59.150
  • REALLY BLOOMED, FLOURISHED, AND BECOME
  • 00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:03.050
  • A HOME TO WORSHIPPERS OF ALL FAITHS.
  • 00:13:03.070 --> 00:13:05.160
  • SO THAT'S THE TRUTH.
  • 00:13:05.180 --> 00:13:06.230
  • WHAT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO?
  • 00:13:06.250 --> 00:13:08.170
  • IT REALLY KIND OF ANSWERS ITSELF ONCE YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:10.230
  • THE TRUTH IS.
  • 00:13:10.250 --> 00:13:11.290
  • THE RIGHT THING TO DO IS TO STAND WITH OUR FRIEND
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:13.280
  • AND ALLY ISRAEL, TO GRANT THEM THE SAME COURTESIES,
  • 00:13:14.000 --> 00:13:17.170
  • IF YOU WILL, THAT WE GRANT EVERY OTHER COUNTRY
  • 00:13:17.190 --> 00:13:19.040
  • IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:20.130
  • ALLOWED THEM TO DESIGNATE THEIR OWN CAPITOL CITY,
  • 00:13:20.150 --> 00:13:22.220
  • AND IT FULFILLS THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
  • 00:13:22.240 --> 00:13:27.030
  • WHOSE LEADERS VOTED BY OVERWHELMING MAJORITIES
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:30.230
  • AS FAR BACK AS 1995 TO RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:34.190
  • THE CAPITOL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.020
  • WHY NO ONE ELSE DID IT, I MEAN, YOU'D PROBABLY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:13:36.040 --> 00:13:37.260
  • TO ASK THEM.
  • 00:13:37.280 --> 00:13:39.040
  • BUT I KNOW WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP DID IT, BECAUSE I
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:40.280
  • THINK HE STANDS FOR A HIGHER AUTHORITY THAN
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:44.120
  • PERHAPS HIS PREDECESSORS.
  • 00:13:44.140 --> 00:13:45.210
  • - ONE OF THE INTERESTING THINGS TO ME WAS THE
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:48.290
  • OUTCRY THAT WE HEARD FROM THE ARAB WORLD AND OTHER
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:52.200
  • COUNTRIES, THAT THIS WAS GOING TO BE AN EXPLOSION.
  • 00:13:52.220 --> 00:13:55.160
  • THAT WAS GOING TO CAUSE ALL KINDS OF THINGS.
  • 00:13:55.180 --> 00:13:57.010
  • HOW HAS IT GONE?
  • 00:13:57.030 --> 00:13:58.220
  • HOW HAS THE TRANSITION BEEN?
  • 00:13:58.240 --> 00:14:00.090
  • HAS IT BEEN DISRUPTIVE IN ANY WAY?
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:02.150
  • - NO. ON OPENING DAY, I DON'T THINK THERE WERE MORE
  • 00:14:02.170 --> 00:14:07.030
  • THAN 15 OR 20 PEOPLE IN THE ENTIRE CITY WHO
  • 00:14:07.050 --> 00:14:09.110
  • WERE PROTESTING.
  • 00:14:09.130 --> 00:14:10.230
  • YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE MEDIA SHOWED CONFLICTS IN
  • 00:14:10.250 --> 00:14:13.070
  • GAZA WHICH HAD STARTED A MONTH EARLIER, AND
  • 00:14:13.090 --> 00:14:16.020
  • FRANKLY RELATED NOT AT ALL TO JERUSALEM, RELATED
  • 00:14:16.040 --> 00:14:18.230
  • TO PEOPLE NOT GETTING THEIR SALARIES PAID.
  • 00:14:18.250 --> 00:14:21.070
  • SINCE THEN, WE HAVEN'T HAD ANY ISSUES.
  • 00:14:21.090 --> 00:14:24.090
  • WE'VE HAD NO THREATS, THANK GOD.
  • 00:14:24.110 --> 00:14:25.220
  • WE OBVIOUSLY WATCH OUR SECURITY VERY CAREFULLY.
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:29.220
  • I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF MEETING WITH
  • 00:14:29.240 --> 00:14:34.110
  • JERUSALEMITES OF ALL PERSUASIONS INCLUDING
  • 00:14:34.130 --> 00:14:38.100
  • MUSLIMS, INCLUDING PALESTINIANS, AND THE
  • 00:14:38.120 --> 00:14:43.180
  • CONVERSATIONS I THINK HAVE BEEN VERY SERIOUS,
  • 00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:47.120
  • GOOD FAITH.
  • 00:14:47.140 --> 00:14:48.250
  • PEOPLE WANT TO WORK TOGETHER, AND I AM
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:51.180
  • ENCOURAGED THAT THIS WAS THE RIGHT DECISION IN
  • 00:14:51.200 --> 00:14:55.140
  • TERMS OF BRINGING PEACE TO THIS REGION AS WELL.
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:57.210
  • - WOW. BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:14:57.230 --> 00:14:59.210
  • SAMUEL, BEING AN ISRAELI CITIZEN, HOW IS IT FOR
  • 00:14:59.230 --> 00:15:04.220
  • YOU TO SEE THE EMBASSY MOVED?
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:06.290
  • - SAMUEL SMADJA: I THINK FOR US AS ISRAELIS, IT'S
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:09.190
  • REALLY A FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY.
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:11.200
  • YOU SEE, I BELIEVE THAT THE RETURN OF THE JEWISH
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:13.280
  • PEOPLE WAS NOT JUST TO RETURN TO ISRAEL, TO THE
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:17.290
  • STREETS OF TEL AVIV, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT.
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:19.210
  • THE RETURN OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO THE LAND WAS
  • 00:15:19.230 --> 00:15:22.130
  • THE RETURN TO ZION, TO JERUSALEM, AND NONE
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:25.180
  • OF THE ISRAELIS HAD A DOUBT IF JERUSALEM WAS
  • 00:15:25.200 --> 00:15:27.280
  • THE CAPITOL OR NOT, BUT FRANKLY THAT THE WORLD
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:30.110
  • STARTS RECOGNIZING THAT JERUSALEM IS THE CAPITOL,
  • 00:15:30.130 --> 00:15:34.200
  • AND AMERICA LEADING THIS WHOLE THING I THINK WAS A
  • 00:15:34.220 --> 00:15:37.100
  • GREAT, GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:15:37.120 --> 00:15:38.280
  • IT'S LIKE NOW WE'RE RECOGNIZED.
  • 00:15:39.000 --> 00:15:40.260
  • NOW PEOPLE CAN SEE AND UNDERSTAND THE MIRACLE OF
  • 00:15:40.280 --> 00:15:48.290
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:15:47.220 --> 00:15:50.220
  • - MATT: WE ARE RIGHT HERE IN
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:51.130
  • JERUSALEM, ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:51.130 --> 00:15:52.110
  • WE'RE BASICALLY AT WHAT IS

  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:16:50.180 --> 00:16:52.030
  • THANK YOU, PRESIDENT TRUMP, FOR

  • PROMISES.
  • 00:16:56.120 --> 00:16:58.070
  • - JAY SEKULOW: I MEAN, I WILL
  • 00:17:01.110 --> 00:17:02.020
  • SAY THIS: THE PRESIDENT RAN ON
  • 00:17:02.020 --> 00:17:03.030
  • THIS.
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:03.220
  • HE WAS COMMITTED TO DO IT, SO IT
  • 00:17:03.220 --> 00:17:04.190
  • WAS GONNA HAPPEN.
  • 00:17:04.190 --> 00:17:05.070
  • I MEAN, THERE WAS NO QUESTION HE
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:07.070
  • NOW, NONE OF US KNEW IT WOULD BE
  • 00:17:10.250 --> 00:17:11.170
  • THE EMBASSY-- THE CONSULATE
  • 00:17:11.170 --> 00:17:12.070
  • WOULD BECOME THE EMBASSY THAT
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:12.280
  • QUICK, AND THERE'S A LOT OF
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:13.180
  • REASONS FOR THAT, THAT ARE VERY
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:14.100
  • POSITIVE, BUT I THINK, LOOK,
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:15.080
  • THERE ARE SOME THAT HAD BEEN IN
  • 00:17:15.080 --> 00:17:16.250
  • THE VARIOUS AGENCIES THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:17:16.250 --> 00:17:18.280
  • LIKE THIS MOVE, AND THEY PUT
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:20.280
  • PRESSURE OUTSIDE, AND THEY PUT
  • 00:17:20.280 --> 00:17:22.150
  • PRESSURE INSIDE, BUT THE END
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:23.170
  • RESULT IS THE PRESIDENT MET WITH

  • SENT-- AND WHY IT WAS SO
  • 00:21:11.230 --> 00:21:12.120
  • IMPORTANT FOR THE LEADER OF THE

  • - DAVID: IT'S SO IMPORTANT
  • 00:21:17.260 --> 00:21:20.260
  • PRIMARILY BECAUSE, IF THE
  • 00:21:20.260 --> 00:21:22.250
  • UNITED STATES DOESN'T LEAD THE
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:24.050
  • WORLD, THE WORLD HAS NO
  • 00:21:24.050 --> 00:21:25.120
  • LEADERSHIP.

  • WE'RE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN DO
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:27.170
  • IT, AND SO I THINK THE WORLD HAS
  • 00:21:27.170 --> 00:21:29.020
  • BEEN RUDDERLESS FOR AT LEAST
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:32.010
  • EIGHT YEARS, AND I FEAR FOR THE

  • ENTIRE WORLD WHEN THE
  • 00:21:33.170 --> 00:21:36.170
  • UNITED STATES DOESN'T LEAD IT,
  • 00:21:36.170 --> 00:21:37.100
  • AND I THINK THAT THAT'S WHY
  • 00:21:37.100 --> 00:21:39.150
  • OTHER NATIONS ARE FOLLOWING
  • 00:21:39.150 --> 00:21:41.080
  • BECAUSE, WHEN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:21:41.080 --> 00:21:42.090
  • WHICH IS STILL THE GREAT BEACON
  • 00:21:42.090 --> 00:21:44.290
  • OF CLARITY OF DEMOCRACY OF HUMAN
  • 00:21:44.290 --> 00:21:46.070

  • NOTWITHSTANDING ALL ITS
  • 00:21:47.080 --> 00:21:48.220
  • CRITICISM THAT IT GETS, THERE'S
  • 00:21:48.220 --> 00:21:50.030
  • NO OTHER NATION LIKE THE
  • 00:21:50.030 --> 00:21:51.110
  • UNITED STATES.
  • 00:21:51.110 --> 00:21:52.170
  • WHEN THE UNITED STATES DOES
  • 00:21:52.170 --> 00:21:53.070
  • SOMETHING, IT GIVES AN
  • 00:21:53.070 --> 00:21:54.020
  • IMPRIMATUR.
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:56.120
  • IT GIVES OTHER NATIONS THE
  • 00:21:56.120 --> 00:21:57.120
  • ABILITY TO SAY, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:21:57.120 --> 00:21:59.020
  • WE NOW HAVE THE COVER OF KNOWING
  • 00:21:59.020 --> 00:22:00.120
  • THAT THE MOST RIGHTEOUS NATION
  • 00:22:00.120 --> 00:22:01.230
  • IN THE WORLD HAS MADE THIS
  • 00:22:01.230 --> 00:22:02.150
  • DECISION."

  • REASONS.
  • 00:22:09.100 --> 00:22:09.280
  • IT'S ON THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF

  • THE HOME OF THE JEWISH STATE,
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:19.220
  • BUT IT'S ALSO A DATE THAT
  • 00:22:19.220 --> 00:22:20.180
  • FINALLY FULFILLS THE PROMISE
  • 00:22:20.180 --> 00:22:22.060
  • THAT THE U.S. HAS MADE THAT WE
  • 00:22:22.060 --> 00:22:23.150
  • WOULD RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS
  • 00:22:23.150 --> 00:22:24.120
  • THE OFFICIAL CAPITAL OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:22:24.120 --> 00:22:25.190
  • WHICH WE SHOULD'VE
  • 00:22:25.190 --> 00:22:26.230
  • ALREADY DONE.
  • 00:22:26.230 --> 00:22:27.120
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TO BE

  • 00:22:29.200 --> 00:22:30.110
  • IT'S A GUTSY DECISION.
  • 00:22:30.110 --> 00:22:31.100
  • HE DID IT DESPITE PRESSURE FROM
  • 00:22:31.100 --> 00:22:32.280
  • WITHIN THE UNITED STATES AND
  • 00:22:32.280 --> 00:22:34.130
  • FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT HE
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:36.040
  • DID IT BECAUSE IT'S THE RIGHT

  • THING TO DO.
  • 00:22:37.110 --> 00:22:38.140
  • HE DID IT BECAUSE HE RECOGNIZES
  • 00:22:40.000 --> 00:22:43.000
  • THAT STANDING WITH ISRAEL IS
  • 00:22:43.000 --> 00:22:43.200
  • WHERE AMERICA NEEDS TO BE IN THE
  • 00:22:43.200 --> 00:22:45.080
  • WORLD, AND I'M GRATEFUL THAT
  • 00:22:45.080 --> 00:22:46.260
  • HE'S HAD THE COURAGE TO DO IT.
  • 00:22:46.260 --> 00:22:48.100
  • IT'S AN EXCITING DAY FOR
  • 00:22:48.100 --> 00:22:49.270

  • WITHIN MY SOUL AND MY SPIRIT
  • 00:23:10.160 --> 00:23:13.020

  • MIDDLE EAST AND A LOT OF OUR
  • 00:24:46.220 --> 00:24:47.250
  • ARAB RESIDENTS SAW THE

  • AND MANY, MANY OTHER COUNTRIES
  • 00:24:51.190 --> 00:24:52.150
  • AS A WEAKNESS.
  • 00:24:52.150 --> 00:24:53.290
  • THEY FELT THAT "WELL, IF THE

  • EXPERIENCE IN WHICH YET ANOTHER

  • - MATT: WE ARE HERE, 2018.
  • 00:29:20.060 --> 00:29:23.000
  • WE ARE AT THE CHRISTIAN
  • 00:29:23.000 --> 00:29:25.070
  • MEDIA SUMMIT,
  • 00:29:25.070 --> 00:29:27.230
  • AND, ERICK STAKELBECK,
  • 00:29:27.230 --> 00:29:29.180
  • WE'RE BASICALLY AT WHAT IS
  • 00:29:29.180 --> 00:29:30.110
  • CALLED A CHRISTIAN MEDIA SUMMIT,
  • 00:29:30.110 --> 00:29:31.040
  • STATE-SPONSORED.
  • 00:29:31.040 --> 00:29:33.110
  • FIRST OF ALL, THAT'S A SHOCK,
  • 00:29:33.110 --> 00:29:35.260
  • YOU KNOW, I MEAN, WHEN YA THINK
  • 00:29:35.260 --> 00:29:38.160
  • ABOUT IT, IF YOU WIND THE
  • 00:29:38.160 --> 00:29:39.090
  • HISTORY BACK.
  • 00:29:39.090 --> 00:29:41.250
  • AND WHEN DID ISRAEL UNDERSTAND
  • 00:29:43.170 --> 00:29:46.170
  • FINALLY THAT WE CHRISTIANS ARE
  • 00:29:49.060 --> 00:29:52.060
  • THEIR BEST FRIENDS IN THE WORLD?
  • 00:29:52.060 --> 00:29:53.130
  • WHEN DID THAT SINK IN?
  • 00:29:53.130 --> 00:29:55.120
  • I THINK A REAL TURNING POINT WAS
  • 00:29:58.110 --> 00:29:59.030
  • THE SECOND INTIFADA BETWEEN 2000
  • 00:29:59.030 --> 00:29:59.250
  • AND 2006.
  • 00:29:59.250 --> 00:30:01.130
  • IF YOU REMEMBER, THERE WERE
  • 00:30:01.130 --> 00:30:02.170
  • WAVES OF SUICIDE BOMBINGS BY
  • 00:30:02.290 --> 00:30:05.290
  • SOME OVER-1.000 ISRAELIS WERE
  • 00:30:09.040 --> 00:30:09.250
  • KILLED DURING THAT PERIOD, 2000,
  • 00:30:09.250 --> 00:30:10.170
  • 2006.
  • 00:30:10.170 --> 00:30:11.240
  • TOURISM NUMBERS DECLINED EXCEPT
  • 00:30:11.250 --> 00:30:14.250
  • AMONG CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:30:14.250 --> 00:30:15.150
  • CHRISTIANS KEPT COMING.
  • 00:30:15.150 --> 00:30:16.160
  • EVANGELICALS FROM AMERICA, IN
  • 00:30:16.160 --> 00:30:18.040
  • PARTICULAR, KEPT COMING TO
  • 00:30:18.040 --> 00:30:19.160
  • ISRAEL; DIDN'T GIVE UP, STOOD
  • 00:30:19.160 --> 00:30:20.250
  • SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH THE
  • 00:30:20.250 --> 00:30:22.120
  • JEWISH PEOPLE IN REALLY THEIR
  • 00:30:22.120 --> 00:30:23.030
  • DARKEST HOUR DURING THAT
  • 00:30:23.030 --> 00:30:24.180
  • INTIFADA.
  • 00:30:24.180 --> 00:30:25.080
  • I THINK THE LIGHTBULB WENT OFF
  • 00:30:25.080 --> 00:30:26.190
  • THEN AMONG ISRAELI LEADERS THAT
  • 00:30:26.190 --> 00:30:27.290
  • SAID, "HEY, WE HAVE A FRIEND
  • 00:30:27.290 --> 00:30:29.130
  • HERE WHO WILL STICK BY US
  • 00:30:29.130 --> 00:30:31.240
  • THROUGH THICK AND THIN."
  • 00:30:31.240 --> 00:30:32.290
  • "NEVER AGAIN" MEANS NEVER AGAIN.
  • 00:30:32.290 --> 00:30:33.210
  • EVANGELICALS IN THE U.S.
  • 00:30:33.210 --> 00:30:35.170
  • PARTICULARLY, THE TBN AUDIENCE,

  • DARKEST TIMES AND NOW THE GREAT
  • 00:30:39.000 --> 00:30:40.120

  • EXPERIENCING: THE EMBASSY HAS
  • 00:30:42.020 --> 00:30:43.030
  • MOVED TO JERUSALEM; THE IRAN
  • 00:30:43.030 --> 00:30:44.260
  • DEAL IS DEAD, AT LEAST IN THE
  • 00:30:44.260 --> 00:30:46.120
  • UNITED STATES, FROM OUR

  • GOOD THINGS HAPPENING, BUT YOU

  • TIMES.
  • 00:30:53.250 --> 00:30:54.280
  • EVANGELICALS WERE WITH ISRAEL
  • 00:30:54.280 --> 00:30:56.110
  • DURING THAT HORRIBLE DARK PERIOD
  • 00:30:56.110 --> 00:30:57.240
  • OF THE SECOND INTIFADA, AND THE

  • RELATIONSHIP HAS REALLY JUST
  • 00:30:59.160 --> 00:31:01.100

  • 00:38:28.140 --> 00:38:30.160
  • IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:38:30.160 --> 00:38:32.070
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:38:32.070 --> 00:38:34.220
  • - MATT: WOULD IT BE FAIR TO SAY
  • 00:38:34.220 --> 00:38:37.050
  • THAT, SAY, TEN YEARS AGO, PRIOR
  • 00:38:37.050 --> 00:38:39.060
  • TO BENJAMIN NETANYAHU'S REIGN AS
  • 00:38:40.130 --> 00:38:43.130
  • THE PRIME MINISTER, THAT YOU
  • 00:38:43.130 --> 00:38:44.140
  • WOULD'VE HAD MORE OF A
  • 00:38:44.140 --> 00:38:46.000
  • SOCIALISTIC GOVERNMENT HERE IN
  • 00:38:46.000 --> 00:38:47.210
  • ISRAEL?
  • 00:38:47.210 --> 00:38:48.170
  • IS THAT A FAIR STATEMENT?
  • 00:38:48.170 --> 00:38:49.220
  • AND IN THE LAST BIT, WE HAVE
  • 00:38:51.110 --> 00:38:54.110
  • GONE MORE INTO THE GOVERNANCE
  • 00:38:54.110 --> 00:38:56.170
  • THAT WE SEE TODAY, ISN'T
  • 00:38:56.170 --> 00:38:57.110
  • PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU
  • 00:38:57.200 --> 00:39:00.220
  • TO GET CREDIT FOR A
  • 00:39:00.220 --> 00:39:02.060
  • BIG SWITCH IN THE FEEL?
  • 00:39:03.020 --> 00:39:06.020
  • THE LIKUD PARTY IS
  • 00:39:10.080 --> 00:39:10.240
  • NATIONALISTIC, UNDERSTANDS THAT
  • 00:39:10.240 --> 00:39:11.160
  • AND I BELIEVE IS MANAGING THE
  • 00:39:15.050 --> 00:39:15.270
  • INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS, THE
  • 00:39:15.270 --> 00:39:17.170
  • SECURITY, IN A VERY, VERY SMART
  • 00:39:17.170 --> 00:39:20.040
  • WAY, WHICH IS VERY-- BE VERY
  • 00:39:20.240 --> 00:39:23.240
  • AGGRESSIVE AND BAD TO THE BAD
  • 00:39:23.240 --> 00:39:26.030
  • GUYS, IRAN, ET CETERA, BUT ALSO
  • 00:39:26.030 --> 00:39:27.280
  • BE REALLY GOOD WITH THE GOOD
  • 00:39:27.280 --> 00:39:29.050
  • GUYS, OUR FRIENDLY ARAB
  • 00:39:29.050 --> 00:39:30.250
  • NEIGHBORS AND OTHERS.
  • 00:39:30.250 --> 00:39:33.200
  • I APPLY THE SAME PHILOSOPHY IN
  • 00:39:33.200 --> 00:39:34.210
  • THE CITY OF JERUSALEM, SO PEOPLE
  • 00:39:34.210 --> 00:39:36.060
  • KNOW THAT, IF THERE'S VIOLENCE,
  • 00:39:36.060 --> 00:39:38.280
  • WE'LL BE VERY AGGRESSIVE TOWARDS
  • 00:39:38.280 --> 00:39:40.090
  • THE VIOLENT PEOPLE, YET WE'D BE
  • 00:39:40.090 --> 00:39:42.080
  • VERY, VERY GOOD, AS MUCH AS WE
  • 00:39:42.080 --> 00:39:43.280
  • CAN, WITH THE GENERAL ARAB
  • 00:39:43.280 --> 00:39:45.200
  • POPULATION, ARAB PUBLIC, MY
  • 00:39:45.200 --> 00:39:46.120
  • RESIDENTS THAT I NEED TO TAKE
  • 00:39:46.120 --> 00:39:47.030
  • CARE OF.
  • 00:39:49.260 --> 00:39:52.260
  • SO THAT'S ONE ELEMENT OF THE
  • 00:39:52.260 --> 00:39:53.160
  • LIKUD.
  • 00:39:53.160 --> 00:39:54.210
  • THE OTHER IS WE'RE LIBERAL, NOT
  • 00:39:54.210 --> 00:39:55.130
  • SOCIALISTS.
  • 00:39:55.130 --> 00:39:57.090
  • I COME FROM HIGH-TECH SECTOR.
  • 00:39:57.090 --> 00:39:58.170
  • I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU NEED TO
  • 00:39:58.210 --> 00:40:01.210
  • HAVE LIBERAL POLICY IN ORDER FOR
  • 00:40:01.210 --> 00:40:04.070
  • THE HIGH-TECH SECTOR TO FLOURISH
  • 00:40:04.070 --> 00:40:06.130
  • AND SUCCEED, AND THE MORE
  • 00:40:06.130 --> 00:40:08.090
  • LIBERAL WE ARE, IN A SMART WAY,
  • 00:40:08.140 --> 00:40:11.140
  • I WOULD SAY-- WE DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:40:11.140 --> 00:40:12.280
  • GO TO THE OTHER EXTREME, AND
  • 00:40:12.280 --> 00:40:14.130
  • ACTUALLY, ALSO THINKING SOCIALLY
  • 00:40:14.130 --> 00:40:15.280
  • OF HOW WE SHOULD DEAL WITH
  • 00:40:15.280 --> 00:40:17.170
  • WELFARE.
  • 00:40:17.170 --> 00:40:19.150
  • SO IT'S NOT BLACK AND WHITE, BUT
  • 00:40:19.150 --> 00:40:20.290
  • THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIBERALISM IS
  • 00:40:20.290 --> 00:40:23.170
  • FUNDAMENTAL AND KEY IN THE
  • 00:40:23.170 --> 00:40:25.260
  • LIKUD, WHICH IS DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:40:25.260 --> 00:40:27.170
  • LABOR PARTY AND OTHER PARTIES IN
  • 00:40:27.170 --> 00:40:30.100
  • THE PARLIAMENT, BUT WE ALSO
  • 00:40:31.040 --> 00:40:34.040
  • MANAGE WITH A LOT OF CARE,
  • 00:40:34.040 --> 00:40:36.040
  • PERSONALIZATION IN MAKING SURE
  • 00:40:36.040 --> 00:40:38.190
  • THAT OUR RESIDENTS IN THE
  • 00:40:38.190 --> 00:40:40.270
  • COUNTRY, THE CIVILIANS, CAN
  • 00:40:40.270 --> 00:40:43.140
  • SUCCEED AND WITH LOTS OF CARE.
  • 00:40:44.240 --> 00:40:47.240
  • FOR ME, THESE THREE ELEMENTS ARE
  • 00:40:48.110 --> 00:40:51.110
  • THE RIGHT ELEMENTS, AND YOU CAN
  • 00:40:51.110 --> 00:40:52.030
  • SEE THAT BIBI NETANYAHU,
  • 00:40:52.030 --> 00:40:52.290
  • BENJAMIN NETANYAHU,
  • 00:40:52.290 --> 00:40:54.070
  • OUR PRIME MINISTER,
  • 00:40:54.070 --> 00:40:55.110
  • IS MANAGING THESE ELEMENTS VERY,
  • 00:40:55.110 --> 00:40:57.220
  • VERY WELL, AND THE COUNTRY'S
  • 00:40:57.220 --> 00:40:58.270
  • DOING WELL, AND THAT'S WHY YOU
  • 00:40:58.270 --> 00:40:59.290
  • SEE MORE AND MORE YOUNG PEOPLE
  • 00:40:59.290 --> 00:41:01.220
  • AND OTHERS JOIN THE LIKUD, JOIN
  • 00:41:01.220 --> 00:41:04.140
  • THE NATIONALISTIC GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:41:04.140 --> 00:41:05.210
  • I THINK THE SWING OF THE VOTES
  • 00:41:06.000 --> 00:41:09.000
  • IN ISRAEL IS DEFINITELY TOWARDS
  • 00:41:09.000 --> 00:41:10.140
  • NETANYAHU'S PHILOSOPHY, WHICH I
  • 00:41:10.140 --> 00:41:13.000
  • SHARE.
  • 00:41:13.000 --> 00:41:15.130
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:41:15.130 --> 00:41:17.240
  • - BENJAMIN: ISRAEL IS A ROBUST
  • 00:41:17.240 --> 00:41:18.220
  • IT SUPPORTS AND PROTECTS THE
  • 00:41:21.230 --> 00:41:23.050
  • RIGHTS OF ALL, THE RIGHTS OF
  • 00:41:23.050 --> 00:41:24.200
  • JEWS, CHRISTIANS, MUSLIMS, OF
  • 00:41:24.200 --> 00:41:25.170
  • AND WE ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO DO
  • 00:41:29.110 --> 00:41:32.110
  • SO IN A VERY BROAD RADIUS.
  • 00:41:32.110 --> 00:41:33.000
  • I THINK THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:41:33.000 --> 00:41:34.260
  • UNUSUAL FOR CHRISTIANS BECAUSE
  • 00:41:34.260 --> 00:41:36.260
  • ISRAEL IS THE ONLY COUNTRY IN
  • 00:41:36.260 --> 00:41:38.150
  • THE MIDDLE EAST WHERE THE
  • 00:41:38.150 --> 00:41:39.190
  • CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY THRIVES AND
  • 00:41:39.190 --> 00:41:41.140
  • GROWS, AND THAT IS ALSO
  • 00:41:41.140 --> 00:41:43.140
  • APPLICABLE TO WHAT HAPPENED IN
  • 00:41:43.140 --> 00:41:45.160
  • THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY AREAS.
  • 00:41:45.160 --> 00:41:48.150
  • YOU KNOW THE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM?
  • 00:41:48.150 --> 00:41:51.140
  • YES.
  • 00:41:51.140 --> 00:41:53.220
  • YOU HAVE A CONNECTION TO IT.
  • 00:41:53.220 --> 00:41:54.120
  • WE ALL DO.
  • 00:41:55.200 --> 00:41:58.200
  • AND AMONG OTHER THINGS, WE HAVE
  • 00:41:58.200 --> 00:41:59.120
  • A CONNECTION THROUGH KING DAVID,
  • 00:41:59.120 --> 00:42:00.270
  • THE STORY OF RUTH, AS YOU KNOW,
  • 00:42:00.270 --> 00:42:03.070
  • BUT ALSO THE STORY OF JESUS.
  • 00:42:03.070 --> 00:42:05.190
  • NOW, BETHLEHEM HAD-- WHEN WE
  • 00:42:05.240 --> 00:42:08.240
  • HANDED BETHLEHEM OVER TO THE
  • 00:42:08.240 --> 00:42:11.030
  • PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY, ITS
  • 00:42:11.030 --> 00:42:12.120
  • CHRISTIAN POPULATION WAS ROUGHLY
  • 00:42:12.120 --> 00:42:14.010
  • 80%.
  • 00:42:14.010 --> 00:42:15.170
  • YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS NOW?
  • 00:42:15.170 --> 00:42:17.040
  • IT'S ABOUT 20%, AND THAT CHANGE
  • 00:42:17.040 --> 00:42:19.250
  • HAPPENED BECAUSE, IN THE
  • 00:42:23.100 --> 00:42:26.100
  • PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY AREAS, AS
  • 00:42:26.100 --> 00:42:27.160
  • WELL AS THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE
  • 00:42:27.160 --> 00:42:29.000
  • EAST, CHRISTIANS ARE BEING
  • 00:42:29.000 --> 00:42:29.190
  • CONSTRICTED.
  • 00:42:29.190 --> 00:42:30.260
  • THEY'RE BEING PRESSURED.
  • 00:42:30.260 --> 00:42:32.110
  • OFTEN, THEY'RE BEING PERSECUTED.
  • 00:42:32.110 --> 00:42:33.160
  • ISRAEL IS THE ONE COUNTRY THAT
  • 00:42:33.160 --> 00:42:36.080
  • PROTECTS THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF
  • 00:42:36.080 --> 00:42:36.280
  • ALL.
  • 00:42:36.280 --> 00:42:38.100
  • WE PROTECT THE RELIGIOUS SITES
  • 00:42:38.100 --> 00:42:39.190
  • OF ALL.
  • 00:42:39.190 --> 00:42:40.130
  • WE DON'T JUST PROTECT CHRISTIAN
  • 00:42:40.130 --> 00:42:41.050
  • RELIGIOUS SITE.
  • 00:42:41.050 --> 00:42:42.220
  • WE PROTECT CHRISTIAN PEOPLE.
  • 00:42:42.220 --> 00:42:45.150
  • CHRISTIANS SHOULD ENJOY ALL THE
  • 00:42:45.150 --> 00:42:47.210
  • FREEDOM TO WORSHIP AS THEY
  • 00:42:47.210 --> 00:42:49.280
  • PLEASE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND
  • 00:42:49.280 --> 00:42:51.080
  • ANYWHERE ELSE, AND THE ONLY
  • 00:42:51.080 --> 00:42:52.290
  • PLACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST WHERE
  • 00:42:52.290 --> 00:42:54.130
  • THEY CAN DO SO IS ISRAEL.
  • 00:42:54.200 --> 00:42:57.200
  • WE HAVE NO BETTER FRIENDS IN THE
  • 00:42:57.200 --> 00:42:58.120
  • WORLD--

  • YOU ARE STANDING UP FOR ISRAEL,
  • 00:43:07.280 --> 00:43:09.010
  • AND YOU'RE STANDING UP FOR THE
  • 00:43:09.010 --> 00:43:10.140
  • TRUTH, AND WE STAND UP FOR YOU.
  • 00:43:10.140 --> 00:43:12.000
  • IT'S ECONOMIC, TECHNOLOGICAL,
  • 00:43:15.210 --> 00:43:16.120
  • MILITARY POWERHOUSE, BUT BEYOND
  • 00:43:16.120 --> 00:43:18.080
  • THE BORDERS OF ISRAEL, THERE ARE
  • 00:43:18.080 --> 00:43:20.050
  • I WANT PEOPLE TO REALIZE THE
  • 00:43:23.160 --> 00:43:24.210
  • STAKES, THAT ISRAEL IS A TINY
  • 00:43:24.210 --> 00:43:25.120
  • COUNTRY SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES.
  • 00:43:25.120 --> 00:43:28.090
  • GIVES EVEN MORE REASON TO STAND
  • 00:43:28.090 --> 00:43:29.010
  • STRONGLY WITH ISRAEL.
  • 00:43:29.010 --> 00:43:30.180
  • THIS COUNTRY IS THE SIZE OF THE
  • 00:43:30.180 --> 00:43:32.090
  • STATE OF NEW JERSEY-- IMAGINE
  • 00:43:32.090 --> 00:43:34.000
  • THAT-- BUT PUNCHING FAR ABOVE
  • 00:43:34.000 --> 00:43:35.240
  • ITS WEIGHT IN EVERY AREA.
  • 00:43:35.240 --> 00:43:37.230
  • BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO REALIZE
  • 00:43:37.230 --> 00:43:39.100
  • THAT THIS IS A PRECARIOUS
  • 00:43:39.100 --> 00:43:40.220
  • SITUATION.
  • 00:43:40.220 --> 00:43:41.250
  • ISRAEL'S SECURE; IT'S STRONG,
  • 00:43:41.250 --> 00:43:43.050
  • BUT THERE ARE FOLKS AT ISRAEL'S
  • 00:43:43.050 --> 00:43:44.220
  • BORDER WHO WOULD LIKE TO PUSH
  • 00:43:44.220 --> 00:43:46.220
  • THIS NATION, QUITE FRANKLY, INTO
  • 00:43:46.220 --> 00:43:49.000
  • THE SEA, AND THAT'S THEIR WORDS,
  • 00:43:49.000 --> 00:43:50.150
  • NOT MINE, SO I WANT PEOPLE TO
  • 00:43:50.150 --> 00:43:51.290
  • REALIZE THAT AS WELL, AND I
  • 00:43:51.290 --> 00:43:53.070
  • THINK THE MAIN THING IS I WANT
  • 00:43:53.070 --> 00:43:54.160
  • THEM TO REALIZE HOW GOD IS
  • 00:43:54.160 --> 00:43:55.160

  • HUMOR BECAUSE EVERY TIME THAT

  • SHADOW OF A DOUBT THAT, YES, THE

  • JEWISH PEOPLE WERE HERE OVER
  • 00:44:11.240 --> 00:44:13.010

  • ISRAEL "FOR SUCH A TIME AS

  • - ANDERS WISTH: IT'S EXTREMELY
  • 00:44:34.260 --> 00:44:36.090
  • IMPORTANT.
  • 00:44:36.090 --> 00:44:36.290
  • WE HAD A VERY CLOSE RELATION
  • 00:44:39.280 --> 00:44:41.040
  • BETWEEN SWEDISH GOVERNMENT AND
  • 00:44:41.040 --> 00:44:42.190
  • THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:44:42.190 --> 00:44:43.130
  • THEY WERE VERY CLOSE.
  • 00:44:45.200 --> 00:44:46.250

  • YOU HAVE ALL THE BIGGEST

  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS NOT

  • BEEN AROUND FOR 2.000 YEARS, AND
  • 00:51:38.240 --> 00:51:40.150
  • SINCE THE CITY WAS REUNITED IN
  • 00:51:40.150 --> 00:51:42.200
  • '67, 51 YEARS AGO, THAT EXISTS

  • AGAIN, AND THAT SUPPORT WE GET
  • 00:51:47.070 --> 00:51:50.070
  • FROM PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU

  • WHICH I'M VERY PROUD OF.
  • 00:51:59.090 --> 00:52:01.220
  • - MATT: BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:52:01.220 --> 00:52:02.220
  • - BENJAMIN: I WOULD TELL PEOPLE
  • 00:52:02.220 --> 00:52:03.140
  • EVERYWHERE, AND ESPECIALLY
  • 00:52:03.140 --> 00:52:04.080
  • PEOPLE IN THE FREE NATIONS THAT
  • 00:52:04.080 --> 00:52:05.100
  • ISRAEL IS THE VANGUARD OF

  • FREEDOM IN THE HEART OF THE

  • MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:52:08.160 --> 00:52:09.050
  • WE ARE PROTECTING THE FREEDOM OF

  • ALREADY OVERRUN THE MIDDLE EAST
  • 00:52:17.140 --> 00:52:19.290
  • EASILY.
  • 00:52:19.290 --> 00:52:21.040
  • ISRAEL NOT ONLY PROTECTS ITSELF,
  • 00:52:21.040 --> 00:52:22.160
  • BUT IT ALSO PROTECTS THE
  • 00:52:22.160 --> 00:52:24.090
  • NEIGHBORHOOD, AND I WON'T GO
  • 00:52:24.090 --> 00:52:25.280
  • INTO DETAILS ABOUT THAT, BUT
  • 00:52:25.280 --> 00:52:27.050
  • WHO'S BLOCKING, WHO'S FIGHTING
  • 00:52:27.050 --> 00:52:29.070
  • RIGHT NOW THE IRANIAN TAKEOVER
  • 00:52:29.070 --> 00:52:31.030
  • OF SYRIA?
  • 00:52:31.030 --> 00:52:32.250
  • WHO'S DOING IT?
  • 00:52:32.250 --> 00:52:34.030
  • ISRAEL IS DOING IT.
  • 00:52:34.030 --> 00:52:34.190
  • AND WHO'S FIGHTING ááDAESH, ALL

  • OVER THE PLACE?
  • 00:52:36.280 --> 00:52:38.070
  • ISRAEL MUST'VE, IN THE LAST
  • 00:52:38.240 --> 00:52:41.240
  • THREE YEARS, MUST'VE STOPPED AT
  • 00:52:41.240 --> 00:52:43.220
  • LEAST 40 MAJOR TERRORIST ATTACKS
  • 00:52:43.220 --> 00:52:45.080
  • BY DAESH THROUGH THE ENTIRE
  • 00:52:45.200 --> 00:52:48.200
  • WORLD.
  • 00:52:48.200 --> 00:52:49.070
  • PLANES COULD'VE BEEN SHOT DOWN
  • 00:52:49.070 --> 00:52:50.020
  • FROM THE SKIES.
  • 00:52:50.020 --> 00:52:50.170
  • MAJOR TERRORIST ATTACKS IN THE
  • 00:52:50.170 --> 00:52:52.100
  • CITIES OF EUROPE AND ELSEWHERE
  • 00:52:52.100 --> 00:52:54.240
  • AND IN ASIA AND IN AFRICA,
  • 00:52:55.050 --> 00:52:58.050
  • ISRAEL HAS PREVENTED WITH SUPERB
  • 00:52:58.050 --> 00:53:00.060
  • INTELLIGENCE, SO I WOULD SAY
  • 00:53:00.110 --> 00:53:03.110
  • ISRAEL IS THE PROTECTOR OF
  • 00:53:03.110 --> 00:53:04.080
  • FREEDOM AND THE DEFENDER AGAINST
  • 00:53:04.080 --> 00:53:05.280
  • RADICAL ISLAM, AND ALL FREE
  • 00:53:05.280 --> 00:53:07.020
  • PEOPLES SHOULD HAVE AN INTEREST
  • 00:53:07.020 --> 00:53:09.020
  • IN THAT.
  • 00:53:09.020 --> 00:53:10.230
  • THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD SUPPORT
  • 00:53:10.230 --> 00:53:11.240
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:53:11.240 --> 00:53:12.270
  • - MATT: LAST QUESTION: FOR
  • 00:53:16.020 --> 00:53:18.140
  • THOSE THAT ARE AT HOME, THEY'RE
  • 00:53:18.140 --> 00:53:21.040
  • VIEWING THIS BROADCAST, AND
  • 00:53:21.110 --> 00:53:24.110
  • THEY'RE WONDERING, KIND OF,
  • 00:53:24.110 --> 00:53:26.110
  • ULTIMATELY, WHY DOES IT MATTER
  • 00:53:26.110 --> 00:53:27.250
  • THAT WE, MAYBE INDIVIDUALLY OR
  • 00:53:27.250 --> 00:53:29.160
  • WE AS A NATION, SUPPORT ISRAEL?
  • 00:53:31.060 --> 00:53:34.060
  • - ERICK: BECAUSE GOD SAYS SO.
  • 00:53:36.180 --> 00:53:37.100
  • I THINK, MATT, THAT IT SOUNDS
  • 00:53:37.100 --> 00:53:38.010
  • SIMPLISTIC, BUT IT REALLY BOILS
  • 00:53:38.010 --> 00:53:39.050
  • DOWN TO THAT.
  • 00:53:39.050 --> 00:53:40.030
  • EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THIS
  • 00:53:43.010 --> 00:53:44.090
  • LAND AND WITH THIS PEOPLE.
  • 00:53:44.090 --> 00:53:45.140
  • THE WORD "EVERLASTING," WHICH
  • 00:53:45.140 --> 00:53:47.050
  • THE WORD OF GOD SAYS, "IT'S
  • 00:53:47.050 --> 00:53:47.280
  • EVERLASTING." GOD SAYS THAT
  • 00:53:47.280 --> 00:53:48.240
  • THAT MEANS IT'S FOREVER, AND GOD
  • 00:53:51.190 --> 00:53:52.120
  • DOES NOT BREAK HIS PROMISES.
  • 00:53:52.120 --> 00:53:53.240
  • I'M A GENESIS 12 GUY.
  • 00:53:54.090 --> 00:53:57.090
  • I TRULY BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL
  • 00:53:57.090 --> 00:53:58.000
  • BLESS THOSE WHO BLESS ISRAEL;
  • 00:53:58.000 --> 00:53:58.210
  • CURSE THOSE WHO CURSE ISRAEL.
  • 00:53:58.210 --> 00:53:59.230
  • I THINK THE UNITED STATES BEARS
  • 00:53:59.230 --> 00:54:01.100
  • THAT OUT.
  • 00:54:01.100 --> 00:54:02.080
  • I BELIEVE WE ARE THE MOST
  • 00:54:02.080 --> 00:54:02.270
  • PROSPEROUS NATION IN THE HISTORY
  • 00:54:02.270 --> 00:54:04.160
  • OF THE WORLD BECAUSE OF THE WAY
  • 00:54:04.160 --> 00:54:05.080
  • WE HAVE TREATED ISRAEL.
  • 00:54:05.080 --> 00:54:07.290
  • JUST LOOK AT PRESIDENT TRUMP
  • 00:54:07.290 --> 00:54:08.240
  • MOVING THE EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM.
  • 00:54:08.240 --> 00:54:10.240
  • HARRY TRUMAN, IN 1948, WAS THE
  • 00:54:10.240 --> 00:54:12.120
  • FIRST TO RECOGNIZE THE REBORN
  • 00:54:12.120 --> 00:54:13.270
  • STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:54:13.270 --> 00:54:15.080
  • WE HAVE A HISTORY IN THE UNITED
  • 00:54:15.080 --> 00:54:16.290
  • STATES OF PROVIDING A SAFE HAVEN
  • 00:54:16.290 --> 00:54:18.080
  • TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS WELL.
  • 00:54:18.080 --> 00:54:19.120
  • TAKE ALL THOSE FACTORS, AND I
  • 00:54:19.120 --> 00:54:21.010
  • THINK THAT'S THE MAIN FACTOR
  • 00:54:21.010 --> 00:54:22.230
  • THAT THE UNITED STATES HAS
  • 00:54:22.230 --> 00:54:23.280
  • PROSPERED AS IT HAS.
  • 00:54:23.280 --> 00:54:25.100
  • SO GOD WILL BLESS THOSE WHO
  • 00:54:25.100 --> 00:54:27.010
  • BLESS ISRAEL, CURSE THOSE WHO
  • 00:54:27.010 --> 00:54:27.220
  • CURSE ISRAEL, AND HE HAS GREAT
  • 00:54:27.220 --> 00:54:28.240
  • PLANS FOR THIS LAND, THAT
  • 00:54:28.240 --> 00:54:31.140
  • EVERLASTING COVENANT COMING TO

  • FRUITION NOW, AND GREAT THINGS
  • 00:54:32.280 --> 00:54:34.110
  • LIE AHEAD.
  • 00:54:34.110 --> 00:54:35.160
  • THESE ARE BIBLE TIMES THAT WE'RE
  • 00:54:35.160 --> 00:54:36.080
  • LIVING IN, AND IT'S ALL GOING
  • 00:54:36.080 --> 00:54:37.160
  • DOWN HERE.
  • 00:54:37.160 --> 00:54:39.170
  • IT'S THE CENTER OF THE WORLD,
  • 00:54:39.170 --> 00:54:40.180
  • NOT ONLY GEOGRAPHICALLY, BUT
  • 00:54:40.180 --> 00:54:41.180
  • SPIRITUALLY.
  • 00:54:41.180 --> 00:54:42.280
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:54:45.210 --> 00:54:48.210

  • OF LEADING THIS CITY.

  • LAST LITTLE-- A COUPLE LITTLE

  • PLACE WHERE JESUS WAS.
  • 00:55:13.090 --> 00:55:15.110
  • IT'S THE PLACE, YOU KNOW, AND
  • 00:55:15.210 --> 00:55:18.210
  • TOURISM IS AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH
  • 00:55:18.210 --> 00:55:19.120

  • 00:55:19.120 --> 00:55:20.180
  • I JUST WANNA ASK YOU A PERSONAL

  • QUESTION: THE PART OF THE BIBLE

  • THAT WE SHARE, THE OLD
  • 00:55:23.180 --> 00:55:25.150
  • TESTAMENT, ARE THOSE REALITIES,

  • OR ARE THOSE JUST STORIES?
  • 00:55:27.010 --> 00:55:29.240
