  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:17.000
  • FIVE MINUTES LATER ONE OF THEM COMES BACK, OPENS
  • 00:06:17.020 --> 00:06:18.140
  • FIRE, STARTS SHOOTING.
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:20.120
  • NOW, I'M THE TALLEST GUY THERE AND I'M THE EASIEST
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:21.270
  • TARGET OF COURSE.
  • 00:06:21.290 --> 00:06:23.190
  • ONLY ABOUT FIVE FEET -THERE WAS A CHAIN LINK
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:26.060
  • FENCE SEPARATING US, FIVE FEET AWAY.
  • 00:06:26.080 --> 00:06:28.060
  • I REMEMBER I TELL PEOPLE IT FELT LIKE A MULE KICK.
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:30.180
  • IT FELT LIKE A HORSE JUST BACKED UP AND KICKED ME
  • 00:06:30.200 --> 00:06:32.240
  • RIGHT IN MY RIGHT HIP.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.230
  • AND I LOOKED UP AND I SAW A GUN IN HIS HAND AND
  • 00:06:34.250 --> 00:06:36.170
  • HE'S SWAYING BACK AND FORTH.
  • 00:06:36.190 --> 00:06:37.200
  • I DIDN'T FALL.
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:39.110
  • OF PURE ADRENALIN WE RAN.
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:42.050
  • ABOUT 15 GUYS THERE.
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:44.100
  • HE CONTINUED TO SHOOT BEHIND US EVEN AS WE RAN.
  • 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:47.000
  • COULD HAVE HIT SOMEONE IN THE BACK.
  • 00:06:47.020 --> 00:06:48.250
  • BUT OF COURSE I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO GOT HIT.
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:50.260
  • MY OLD FRIENDS WHO I GREW UP WITH SAY HEY, I'D TAKE
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:52.220
  • A BULLET FOR YOU.
  • 00:06:52.240 --> 00:06:54.040
  • I SAY, WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I NEEDED YOU?
  • 00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:55.150
  • SO BULLET IN MY HIP, AND FUNNY SIDE STORY, GET IN
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:57.290
  • THE CAR, RUSHING TO THE HOSPITAL, 2 FRIENDS
  • 00:06:58.010 --> 00:07:00.140
  • DRIVING, AND A FRIEND IN THE BACK.
  • 00:07:00.160 --> 00:07:02.260
  • AND TELLS YOU THE KIND OF MENTALITY OF THE GUYS I
  • 00:07:02.280 --> 00:07:05.250
  • GREW UP WITH.
  • 00:07:05.270 --> 00:07:07.230
  • YOU FIGURED HE'D SAY YOU'RE GOING TO BE OKAY.
  • 00:07:07.250 --> 00:07:09.100
  • I SAID, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:10.230
  • HOW DOES IT LOOK?
  • 00:07:10.250 --> 00:07:12.050
  • MESH BASKETBALL SHORTS ON MATT, THIS POOL OF BLOOD
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:13.130
  • IS FORMING.
  • 00:07:13.150 --> 00:07:15.040
  • I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S MY KIDNEY, MY INTESTINES.
  • 00:07:15.060 --> 00:07:16.170
  • AM I GOING TO DIE?
  • 00:07:16.190 --> 00:07:18.040
  • I'VE JUST BEEN SHOT.
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:19.170
  • AND I SAID, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
  • 00:07:19.190 --> 00:07:20.270
  • HE LOOKS AND HE SAYS, I DON'T KNOW, MAN, BUT IT
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:22.130
  • DOESN'T LOOK GOOD.
  • 00:07:22.150 --> 00:07:23.270
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:25.150
  • PEOPLE FROM PHILADELPHIA ARE VERY HONEST TO SAY THE LEAST.
  • 00:07:25.170 --> 00:07:28.140
  • SO LONG STORY SHORT WE GET TO THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:30.150
  • THANK GOD I WAS STABILIZED RIGHT AWAY.
  • 00:07:30.170 --> 00:07:32.180
  • BUT 22 CALIBER BULLET STILL IN ME BY THE WAY.
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:35.090
  • THEY DECIDED NOT TO TAKE IT OUT BECAUSE IT WAS
  • 00:07:35.110 --> 00:07:37.120
  • VERY CLOSE TO MY FEMORAL ARTERY WHICH BASICALLY
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:39.140
  • YOU CAN BLEED OUT AND DIE.
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:42.210
  • IT WAS JUST NOT EVEN AN INCH FROM THAT MAIN
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:47.170
  • ARTERY, SO THE DOCTOR SAID LOOK, WE'RE NOT
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:50.250
  • GOING TO DO SURGERY.
  • 00:07:50.270 --> 00:07:52.130
  • WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE IT IN, SO THE BULLET
  • 00:07:52.150 --> 00:07:54.110
  • REMAINS IN.
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:55.220
  • I DO WANT TO SAY ONE THING.
  • 00:07:55.240 --> 00:07:56.260
  • MY JOURNALISM CAREER STARTED IN THAT
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:57.270
  • HOSPITAL BED.
  • 00:07:57.290 --> 00:07:59.130
  • THIS IS THE GOODNESS OF GOD, MATT.
  • 00:07:59.150 --> 00:08:01.040
  • IT WAS THE LOWEST POINT IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:08:01.060 --> 00:08:03.050
  • I'M LAYING IN BED WITH A BULLET IN MY HIP.
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:05.120
  • WHAT ARE PEOPLE GOING TO THINK?
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:07.020
  • I WASN'T DOING ANYTHING WRONG.
  • 00:08:07.040 --> 00:08:08.160
  • I JUST GRADUATED COLLEGE.
  • 00:08:08.180 --> 00:08:09.220
  • I WAS PLAYING BASKETBALL.
  • 00:08:09.240 --> 00:08:11.050
  • IT WAS WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME.
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:12.220
  • ULTIMATE LOW IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:08:12.240 --> 00:08:15.230
  • AND I DIDN'T SLEEP A WINK THE FIRST NIGHT.
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:18.080
  • HORRIBLE PAIN OBVIOUSLY THE NEXT MORNING I GET A
  • 00:08:18.100 --> 00:08:20.050
  • CALL FROM MY FATHER IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:22.050
  • 9 AM IN THE MORNING, AND HE SAID HEY, YOU GOT
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:24.180
  • A CALL FROM SLAM MAGAZINE NOW, IT'S A
  • 00:08:24.200 --> 00:08:26.270
  • BASKETBALL MAGAZINE.
  • 00:08:26.290 --> 00:08:29.080
  • I HAD SENT RESUMES OUT ON A WHIM.
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:30.260
  • IT'S A NATIONAL PUBLICATION.
  • 00:08:30.280 --> 00:08:33.040
  • HE SAID THEY WANT YOU TO WRITE AN ARTICLE FOR THEM.
  • 00:08:33.060 --> 00:08:35.250
  • SO IT WAS ALMOST LIKE GOD WAS SAYING I STILL
  • 00:08:35.270 --> 00:08:37.250
  • HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU.
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:39.120
  • YOU'RE IN A LOW POINT RIGHT NOW, YOU HAVE A
  • 00:08:39.140 --> 00:08:40.250
  • BULLET IN YOUR HIP, BUT I STILL HAVE A
  • 00:08:40.270 --> 00:08:42.230
  • GREAT PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:44.020
  • THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF MY JOURNALISM CAREER, AND
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:45.220
  • NOW I'M SITTING HERE WITH YOU IN JERUSALEM.
  • 00:08:45.240 --> 00:08:47.220
  • - IS "BULLET IN MY HIP" A NICE WAY OF SAYING
  • 00:08:47.240 --> 00:08:50.030
  • YOU GOT SHOT IN THE BUTT?
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:51.090
  • - NO, NO.
  • 00:08:51.110 --> 00:08:52.280
  • - IT ACTUALLY HIT YOUR HIP?
  • 00:08:53.000 --> 00:08:54.060
  • - IT WAS LITERALLY IN MY HIP ON THE FRONT SIDE.
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:56.080
  • BUT I DO HAVE CHILDREN THANKFULLY,
  • 00:08:56.100 --> 00:08:58.180
  • SO IT WORKED OUT OKAY.
  • 00:08:58.200 --> 00:09:00.240
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:02.030
  • - BUT THERE WAS SOME CONCERN.
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:03.140
  • - GOT IT. ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:09:03.160 --> 00:09:05.110
  • I DON'T NEED ANY MORE INFORMATION THAN THAT.
  • 00:09:05.130 --> 00:09:07.130
  • YOU CAN TELL ME LATER.
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:08.290
  • ALL RIGHT, ERICK STAKELBECK, THE JOURNEY
  • 00:09:09.010 --> 00:09:13.070
  • OF YOUR JOURNALISM CAREER STARTING WITH SLAM MAGAZINE.
  • 00:09:13.090 --> 00:09:16.210
  • SO YOU WRITE THIS ARTICLE, AND IT MAKES
  • 00:09:16.230 --> 00:09:19.120
  • SENSE BECAUSE YOU'RE SEVEN AND A HALF FEET
  • 00:09:19.140 --> 00:09:21.080
  • TALL, BUT HOW DO YOU PROGRESS NOW TO YOUR
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:27.000
  • PASSION THAT YOUR FATHER INSTILLED IN YOU TO THE
  • 00:09:27.020 --> 00:09:31.290
  • WATCHMAN HERE ON TBN. CONTINUE THE STORY.
  • 00:09:32.010 --> 00:09:36.090
  • - MATT, YOU SAID IT. THIS IS MY PASSION.
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:38.030
  • THIS IS MY HEART. IT ALWAYS WAS.
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:41.120
  • I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A CAREER.
  • 00:09:41.140 --> 00:09:43.120
  • I KNEW I WANTED TO BE A JOURNALIST.
  • 00:09:43.140 --> 00:09:45.020
  • I STARTED OUT IN PRINT, ACTUALLY A WRITER, AND
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:47.050
  • THEY SAY WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW.
  • 00:09:47.070 --> 00:09:48.210
  • WELL I WAS A BASKETBALL PLAYER. I PLAYED IN COLLEGE.
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:50.230
  • I THOUGHT OKAY, I'LL TRY MY HAND AT SPORTS
  • 00:09:50.250 --> 00:09:52.170
  • WRITING. DID IT FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF.
  • 00:09:52.190 --> 00:09:54.270
  • ENJOYED IT BUT IT WAS COMPLETELY UNFULFILLING.
  • 00:09:54.290 --> 00:09:57.260
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THE LORD PERSONALLY YET, BUT I
  • 00:09:57.280 --> 00:10:00.020
  • KNEW HE HAD SOMETHING ELSE FOR MY LIFE.
  • 00:10:00.040 --> 00:10:02.090
  • SO FAST FORWARD TO 9-11.
  • 00:10:02.110 --> 00:10:05.170
  • I WAS SHOOK TO MY CORE, LIKE WE ALL WERE, AND
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:07.270
  • JUST AS A CONCERNED AMERICAN THE DAY AFTER
  • 00:10:07.290 --> 00:10:10.100
  • 9-11, LITERALLY WENT OUT, BOUGHT EVERYTHING I COULD
  • 00:10:10.120 --> 00:10:13.160
  • GET MY HANDS ON ABOUT RADICAL ISLAM, ABOUT THE
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:15.270
  • MIDDLE EAST AND JIHAD, I BOUGHT THE QURAN, I
  • 00:10:15.290 --> 00:10:18.170
  • STARTED READING THE BIBLE FINALLY FOR MYSELF, NOT
  • 00:10:18.190 --> 00:10:20.260
  • JUST HEARING MY FATHER'S STORIES BUT READING IT
  • 00:10:20.280 --> 00:10:22.270
  • FOR MYSELF. GOD DREW ME TO HIS WORD.
  • 00:10:22.290 --> 00:10:25.120
  • AND JUST AS A CONCERNED AMERICAN, I ALREADY HAD
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:27.020
  • THE BACKGROUND OF INFORMATION, I GUESS YOU
  • 00:10:27.040 --> 00:10:30.240
  • WOULD SAY, FROM MY FATHER AND FROM FOLLOWING THE NEWS.
  • 00:10:30.260 --> 00:10:33.080
  • I WAS A NEWS JUNKY, A POLITICAL FOREIGN POLICY
  • 00:10:33.100 --> 00:10:35.070
  • JUNKY, BUT I REALLY DUG DEEP FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:38.070
  • STILL NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A CAREER.
  • 00:10:38.090 --> 00:10:41.090
  • I JUST THOUGHT AFTER 9-11 THAT THE OTHER SHOE WAS
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:43.080
  • GOING TO DROP, RIGHT?
  • 00:10:43.100 --> 00:10:44.180
  • WE HAD ANTHRAX MAILINGS, IF YOU THINK BACK TO THE
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.160
  • FALL OF 2001, A SCARY TIME. AND ONE DAY MY WIFE AND
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:50.270
  • I ARE WALKING ON THE BEACH. WE'RE ON VACATION.
  • 00:10:50.290 --> 00:10:53.070
  • NO PLACE EXOTIC BY THE WAY. THE JERSEY SHORE.
  • 00:10:53.090 --> 00:10:56.120
  • THAT'S NOT EXACTLY THE WHITE SANDS BUT GOOD
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:11:01.070
  • PIZZA AND GOOD PEOPLE.
  • 00:11:01.090 --> 00:11:03.180
  • SNOOKI WASN'T THERE, BY THE WAY.
  • 00:11:03.200 --> 00:11:05.080
  • SO WE'RE WALKING DOWN THE SHORE ON THE BEACH,
  • 00:11:05.100 --> 00:11:07.130
  • AND MY WIFE SAID-- I'M TALKING ABOUT JIHAD OR
  • 00:11:07.150 --> 00:11:09.170
  • RADICAL ISLAM, AND MY WIFE SAYS YOU'RE A
  • 00:11:09.190 --> 00:11:12.080
  • WRITER, WRITE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:11:12.100 --> 00:11:14.140
  • SO IT WAS LIKE THE LIGHTBULB WENT OFF IN MY HEAD.
  • 00:11:14.160 --> 00:11:16.170
  • AND LONG STORY SHORT, I STARTED SENDING CLIPS
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:19.040
  • OUT OF MY WRITING TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
  • 00:11:19.060 --> 00:11:20.260
  • A FEW PEOPLE GAVE ME A SHOT, AND ENDED UP MOVING
  • 00:11:20.280 --> 00:11:24.010
  • TO WASHINGTON D.C. AND TRANSITIONING INTO T.V.
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:27.080
  • OUR GOOD FRIENDS AT CBN HIRED ME AND-- BY THE
  • 00:11:27.100 --> 00:11:30.020
  • GRACE OF GOD, HIRED ME AND THREW ME ON CAMERA.

  • DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING AT THE TIME, BUT I
  • 00:11:33.060 --> 00:11:35.020
  • HAD A GREAT RUN AT CBN, AND NOW I'M HERE AT TBN AND--

  • HITTING STUFF, BUT ALSO THE GREAT THINGS
  • 00:15:11.040 --> 00:15:13.200
  • HAPPENING IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:13.220 --> 00:15:14.270

  • THAT SCARY STUFF WHICH WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT, BUT
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:20.190
  • WE'RE ALSO TALKING ABOUT THE AMAZING
  • 00:15:20.210 --> 00:15:21.270
  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL FINDS HERE IN ISRAEL THAT PROVE THE
  • 00:15:21.290 --> 00:15:24.230
  • TRUTH OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:15:24.250 --> 00:15:26.120
  • - MATT CROUCH: THE DESERT COMING TO LIFE.
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:28.010
  • - ERICK: IT'S A MIRACLE OF GOD. ONLY GOD.
  • 00:15:28.030 --> 00:15:30.210
  • THE MEDICAL, THE SCIENTIFIC, THE HIGH-TECH
  • 00:15:30.230 --> 00:15:32.180
  • BREAKTHROUGHS ISRAEL IS INVOLVED IN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:32.200 --> 00:15:35.090
  • IT'S A TINY COUNTRY THE SIZE OF THE STATE OF NEW
  • 00:15:35.110 --> 00:15:37.130
  • JERSEY, SPEAKING OF JERSEY, TRUE STORY, BUT IT'S AMAZING.
  • 00:15:37.150 --> 00:15:41.270
  • ISRAEL PUNCHES FAR ABOVE IT'S WEIGHT WHEN THERE'S
  • 00:15:41.290 --> 00:15:44.050
  • AN EARTHQUAKE IN MEXICO CITY, HURRICANE HARVEY IN
  • 00:15:44.070 --> 00:15:47.030
  • HOUSTON, ISRAELI FIRST RESPONDERS ARE THE FIRST
  • 00:15:47.050 --> 00:15:49.180
  • ON THE GROUND EVERY TIME, REALLY BEING A LIGHT IN
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:52.090
  • THE DARKNESS. AMAZING ENCOURAGING THINGS
  • 00:15:52.110 --> 00:15:54.140
  • HAPPENING HERE IN GOD'S LAND IN 2018.
  • 00:15:54.160 --> 00:15:56.240
  • - I LIKE IT.
  • 00:15:56.260 --> 00:15:58.020
  • OKAY, 2017, LAST YEAR WE SAW THE 50 YEAR JUBILEE
  • 00:15:58.040 --> 00:16:06.180
  • YEAR OF THE REUNIFICATION OF EAST AND WEST JERUSALEM.
  • 00:16:06.200 --> 00:16:11.040
  • WE ARE TALKING TO YOU TODAY FROM MOUNT GIVAT HANANYA.
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:17.210
  • THAT IS THE MOUNT OF GRACE.
  • 00:16:17.230 --> 00:16:19.290
  • AND SO NOW, 2018, THE EMBASSY MOVE,
  • 00:16:20.010 --> 00:16:28.060
  • SCALE 1-10, THAT'S PRETTY MUCH A TEN I THINK.
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:31.080
  • - ERICK: TEN. - MATT CROUCH: OKAY. WHY?
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:33.260
  • - NUMBER ONE, IT SOLIDIFIES ISRAEL'S
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:38.030
  • OWNERSHIP OF THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:16:38.050 --> 00:16:40.130
  • IT SOLIDIFIES, MATT, WHAT YOU AND I HAVE KNOWN
  • 00:16:40.150 --> 00:16:42.260
  • SINCE WE WERE LITTLE, THAT JERUSALEM IS THE
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:45.220
  • ETERNAL ANCESTRAL CAPITAL OF ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH
  • 00:16:45.240 --> 00:16:48.170
  • PEOPLE. GOD MAKES IT CLEAR IN HIS WORD.
  • 00:16:48.190 --> 00:16:50.120
  • THIS IS THE CITY WHERE GOD ALMIGHTY HAS WRITTEN
  • 00:16:50.140 --> 00:16:52.090
  • HIS NAME FOREVER.
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:54.070
  • GOD IS VERY BLACK AND WHITE WHEN IT COMES TO
  • 00:16:54.090 --> 00:16:56.130
  • JERUSALEM. REALLY NOT MANY GRAY AREAS HERE.
  • 00:16:56.150 --> 00:16:58.100
  • GOD IS VERY FORTHRIGHT, VERY DOWN THE LINE,
  • 00:16:58.120 --> 00:17:01.170
  • JERUSALEM IS MY CITY AND IT BELONGS TO ISRAEL AND
  • 00:17:01.190 --> 00:17:04.030
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:04.050 --> 00:17:05.120
  • WHAT THE UNITED STATES HAS DONE, AND MATT I
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:07.060
  • THINK LOOK, AS THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD, WE
  • 00:17:07.080 --> 00:17:09.260
  • SHOULD BE THE FIRST ONES TO DO THIS.
  • 00:17:09.280 --> 00:17:12.050
  • WE HAVE SAID TO THE WORLD THAT WE RECOGNIZE
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:15.080
  • JERUSALEM AS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL, AS
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:17.220
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS SAID, WE'RE TALKING THAT OFF
  • 00:17:17.240 --> 00:17:19.260
  • THE TABLE. IT'S A DONE DEAL.
  • 00:17:19.280 --> 00:17:21.270
  • JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S CAPITAL.
  • 00:17:21.290 --> 00:17:24.020
  • SOUNDS LIKE COMMON SENSE TO US, BUT TO A GOOD
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:26.280
  • CHUNK OF THE WORLD IT'S NOT.
  • 00:17:27.000 --> 00:17:28.110
  • - WHY?
  • 00:17:28.130 --> 00:17:30.010
  • - WELL, THERE'S OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF ISRAEL
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:31.150
  • HATRED IN THE WORLD. THAT'S BIBLICAL.
  • 00:17:31.170 --> 00:17:36.100
  • WE'VE SEEN THAT FOR 3.000 YEARS PLUS,
  • 00:17:36.120 --> 00:17:37.290
  • OBVIOUSLY, BUT ISRAEL SURVIVORS AND THRIVES.
  • 00:17:38.010 --> 00:17:39.230
  • ALL OF ITS ENEMIES END UP IN THE ASH HEAP OF HISTORY.
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:42.000
  • THAT'S ALSO A FACT.
  • 00:17:42.020 --> 00:17:43.220
  • BUT I LOOK EUROPE AND THE EUROPEAN UNION, THE
  • 00:17:43.240 --> 00:17:45.090
  • U.N., THE INTERNATIONAL BODIES, MATT, AND
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:47.240
  • THERE'S A LACK OF MORAL CLARITY.
  • 00:17:47.260 --> 00:17:50.100
  • - HAMAS, FOR EXAMPLE, ALREADY CALLING FOR A DAY OF RAGE.
  • 00:17:50.120 --> 00:17:53.000
  • - OBSTRUCTION OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL.
  • 00:17:53.020 --> 00:17:56.120
  • - THERE'S THIS MORAL RELATIVISM.
  • 00:17:56.140 --> 00:17:58.190
  • I LIKE TO SAY THAT WE LIVE IN A WINSTON
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:18:00.270
  • CHURCHILL MOMENT, AND I SEE PRIME MINISTER
  • 00:18:00.290 --> 00:18:03.050
  • NETANYAHU, I SEE PRESIDENT TRUMP MAKING
  • 00:18:03.070 --> 00:18:04.250
  • TOUGH DECISIONS, MAKING TOUGH CALLS THAT ARE
  • 00:18:04.270 --> 00:18:07.000
  • VERY UNPOPULAR, BUT THEY'RE DOING THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:09.140
  • IMAGINE THAT. TODAY, WE DON'T HAVE THAT SPINE, THAT
  • 00:18:09.160 --> 00:18:12.100
  • BACKBONE, I BELIEVE, QUITE FRANKLY, AMONG
  • 00:18:12.120 --> 00:18:14.180
  • MANY WESTERN LEADERS.
  • 00:18:14.200 --> 00:18:16.090
  • AND IN PARTICULAR, AT THE U.N., THESE
  • 00:18:16.110 --> 00:18:18.030
  • INTERNATIONAL BODIES, EVERYTHING -- WE SAID
  • 00:18:18.050 --> 00:18:20.020
  • BLACK AND WHITE -- EVERYTHING IS GRAY,
  • 00:18:20.040 --> 00:18:22.020
  • SHADES OF GRAY FOR MANY IN THE WEST TODAY.
  • 00:18:22.040 --> 00:18:24.190
  • AND WHEN IT COMES TO ISRAEL, THERE'S NOT
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:27.010
  • ONLY SHADES OF GRAY, THERE'S A HOSTILITY TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:18:27.030 --> 00:18:29.020
  • I BELIEVE A LOT OF IT IS ANTI-SEMITISM WHICH
  • 00:18:29.040 --> 00:18:31.030
  • IS DEEP WILL HE INGRAINED IN EUROPE FOR
  • 00:18:31.050 --> 00:18:33.120
  • CENTURIES, BUT ANOTHER PART OF IT, I THINK, IS
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:37.080
  • THAT ISRAEL, IT'S PRETTY AMAZING, THAT IN
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:39.130
  • THE EYES OF THE WORLD, MATT, DAVID HAS BECOME GOLIATH.
  • 00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:43.050
  • ISRAEL, WHICH WAS THE UNDER DOG, THE PLUCKY
  • 00:18:43.070 --> 00:18:46.000
  • ISRAEL, 1967, DEFEATED THE ARAB ARMIES AGAINST
  • 00:18:46.020 --> 00:18:48.100
  • OVERWHELMING ODDS.
  • 00:18:48.120 --> 00:18:50.190
  • NOW ISRAEL IS LOOKED AT AS THE BULLY AND THE
  • 00:18:50.210 --> 00:18:53.000
  • OPPRESSOR OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:53.020 --> 00:18:55.120
  • ISN'T IT AMAZING HOW FLIPPED -- IN 50 YEARS,
  • 00:18:55.140 --> 00:18:57.020
  • IT FLIPPED LIKE THAT.
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:58.250
  • SO ISRAEL'S UP AGAINST IT, BUT GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING.
  • 00:18:58.270 --> 00:19:01.050
  • LOOK, THE U.S./ISRAEL RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:19:01.070 --> 00:19:02.220
  • SOLIDIFYING OBVIOUSLY WITH THE EMBASSY MOVING.
  • 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:05.080
  • I LOOK AT LATIN AMERICA, WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:19:05.100 --> 00:19:07.030
  • ABOUT EN LACE.
  • 00:19:07.050 --> 00:19:08.200
  • LATIN AMERICA IS A PLACE WHERE ISRAEL IS
  • 00:19:08.220 --> 00:19:10.130
  • MAKING MAJOR INROADS.
  • 00:19:10.150 --> 00:19:12.050
  • GUATEMALA IS MOVING THEIR EMBASSY,
  • 00:19:12.070 --> 00:19:13.250
  • PARAGUAY, HONDURAS, OTHER LATIN AMERICAN
  • 00:19:13.270 --> 00:19:15.230
  • COUNTRIES CONSIDERING MOVING THEIR EMBASSIES.
  • 00:19:15.250 --> 00:19:18.140
  • ISRAEL IS IN AFRICA NOW.
  • 00:19:18.160 --> 00:19:20.110
  • PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU MAKING GREAT
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:22.110
  • INROADS THERE WITH THE LEADERS IN AFRICA;
  • 00:19:22.130 --> 00:19:24.110
  • INDIA, A MAJOR OBVIOUSLY ALLIANCE FOR
  • 00:19:24.130 --> 00:19:28.210
  • ISRAEL THAT COULD PAY A LOT OF DIVIDENDS.
  • 00:19:28.230 --> 00:19:30.170
  • SO GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING.
  • 00:19:30.190 --> 00:19:32.080
  • ISRAEL IS NOT AS ISOLATED AS PEOPLE
  • 00:19:32.100 --> 00:19:34.080
  • WOULD LIKE TO THINK.
  • 00:19:34.100 --> 00:19:36.010
  • - WHY IS THIS MOVE SO IMPORTANT?
  • 00:19:36.030 --> 00:19:39.010
  • - THE EMBASSY MOVE, NUMBER ONE, IT DOES
  • 00:19:39.030 --> 00:19:41.160
  • SOLIDIFY ISRAEL'S OWNERSHIP OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:19:41.180 --> 00:19:44.140
  • AGAIN, IT TAKES IT OFF THE TABLE, BUT EVEN
  • 00:19:44.160 --> 00:19:47.060
  • MORE IMPORTANTLY, MATT, IT TELLS THE WORLD, IT
  • 00:19:47.080 --> 00:19:50.180
  • TELLS THE WORLD.
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:52.120
  • IT'S NOT JUST AMERICA SAYING, OKAY, WE'RE
  • 00:19:52.140 --> 00:19:53.290
  • GOING TO MOVE OUR EMBASSY.
  • 00:19:54.010 --> 00:19:55.180
  • IT'S A POWERFUL SHOT ACROSS THE BOW BY THE
  • 00:19:55.200 --> 00:19:58.010
  • LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD DECLARING TO THE
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:20:00.050
  • WORLD, LAYING DOWN THE GAUNTLET, THAT THIS IS
  • 00:20:00.070 --> 00:20:02.120
  • HOW IT'S GOING TO BE.
  • 00:20:02.140 --> 00:20:04.070
  • JERUSALEM IS IT. HANDS OFF.
  • 00:20:04.090 --> 00:20:07.000
  • DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:08.240
  • IT'S ALSO A MESSAGE, I THINK, MATT, TO ROGUE
  • 00:20:08.260 --> 00:20:11.090
  • REGIMES, TO TERRORISTS, TO TYRANTS, WHO WOULD
  • 00:20:11.110 --> 00:20:13.090
  • LIKE TO WIPE ISRAEL AND AMERICA, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:15.040
  • OFF THE MAP.
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:16.260
  • IT'S A CLEAR MESSAGE TO ME AGAINST TERROR.
  • 00:20:16.280 --> 00:20:18.290
  • IT'S THE UNITED STATES SAYING, WE WON'T BE INTIMIDATED.
  • 00:20:19.010 --> 00:20:21.090
  • NOW, IN THE RUN UP TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE
  • 00:20:21.110 --> 00:20:23.230
  • EMBASSY MOVE IN DECEMBER, MATT, IF YOU
  • 00:20:23.250 --> 00:20:25.260
  • REMEMBER, THE INTERNATIONAL MEDIA,
  • 00:20:25.280 --> 00:20:28.020
  • THE U.N., PALESTINIAN LEADERSHIP, THE
  • 00:20:28.040 --> 00:20:30.000
  • EUROPEAN UNION, THEY WERE HOWLING IN DISMAY
  • 00:20:30.020 --> 00:20:32.070
  • THAT THE EMBASSY WAS GOING TO BE MOVED, AND
  • 00:20:32.090 --> 00:20:34.110
  • THEY SAID, THIS IS GOING TO SPARK ANOTHER INTIFADA.
  • 00:20:34.130 --> 00:20:36.150
  • IT'S GOING TO SET THE REGION ON FIRE.
  • 00:20:36.170 --> 00:20:38.090
  • NUMBER ONE, MATT, THE REGION, IN CASE THEY
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:40.120
  • HAVEN'T NOTICED, HAS BEEN ON FIRE FOR ABOUT
  • 00:20:40.140 --> 00:20:42.160
  • ABOUT 3.000 YEARS, BUT IN PARTICULAR, THE PAST
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:44.230
  • EIGHT YEARS OR SO.
  • 00:20:44.250 --> 00:20:46.170
  • SYRIA ACROSS THE BORDER, 500.000 PEOPLE
  • 00:20:46.190 --> 00:20:48.140
  • KILLED. SO THAT'S NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:20:48.160 --> 00:20:50.270
  • THE REGION'S ALREADY ON FIRE, BUT NUMBER TWO,
  • 00:20:50.290 --> 00:20:53.060
  • IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
  • 00:20:53.080 --> 00:20:54.290
  • THERE WERE SOME PROTESTS, YES, BUT
  • 00:20:55.010 --> 00:20:56.250
  • NOTHING ALONG THE LINES OF THESE DOOMSDAY
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:21:00.040
  • PREDICTIONS THAT WE'RE GETTING FROM
  • 00:21:00.060 --> 00:21:02.010
  • THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA PUNDITS.
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.230
  • SO WE SHOWED A LOT OF SPINE.
  • 00:21:03.250 --> 00:21:05.200
  • WE DID THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.190
  • I CAN JUST BOIL IT DOWN TO ONE PHRASE, MATT: WE
  • 00:21:07.210 --> 00:21:09.090
  • DID THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:10.290
  • AND I THINK GOD IS GOING TO SMILE ON THE
  • 00:21:11.010 --> 00:21:12.240
  • UNITED STATES FOR IT. I REALLY DO.
  • 00:21:12.260 --> 00:21:14.190
  • - IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN JERUSALEM TODAY.
  • 00:21:14.210 --> 00:21:18.010
  • - IMMACULATE.
  • 00:21:18.030 --> 00:21:19.290
  • - IT'S JUST ABSOLUTELY AN AMAZING DAY.
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:24.000
  • THERE ARE NO FIRES BURNING BEHIND US.
  • 00:21:24.020 --> 00:21:26.140
  • IF THERE WERE, YOU WOULD SEE THEM, AND
  • 00:21:26.160 --> 00:21:28.290
  • THIS MOVE OF THE UNITED STATES, BOLD MOVE, TO
  • 00:21:29.010 --> 00:21:34.010
  • MOVE OUR EMBASSY DOWN I THOUGHT WAS GOING TO BE
  • 00:21:34.030 --> 00:21:37.290
  • HAPPENING NEXT YEAR.
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:40.050
  • I DIDN'T THINK WE WERE GOING TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:21:40.070 --> 00:21:41.280
  • PULL IT OFF.
  • 00:21:42.000 --> 00:21:43.190
  • WE HAVE A CONSULATE JUST KIND OF NOT FAR
  • 00:21:43.210 --> 00:21:45.240
  • FROM HERE, AND I SUPPOSE IT'S AS EASY AS
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:48.070
  • MOVING THE AMBASSADOR, PUTTING HIM AS A DESK
  • 00:21:48.090 --> 00:21:51.170
  • THERE, AND THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN, THAT'S THE EMBASSY.
  • 00:21:51.190 --> 00:21:54.000
  • I GET IT, SO IT'S NOT A DIFFICULT THING.
  • 00:21:54.020 --> 00:21:56.000
  • WE'RE NOT BUILDING A BUILDING HERE.
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:21:57.250
  • I MEAN, THE UNITED STATES IS NOT BUILDING
  • 00:21:57.270 --> 00:21:59.080
  • A BUILDING HERE.
  • 00:21:59.100 --> 00:22:01.010
  • IT'S ALREADY BUILT, NICE COMPOUND OVER THIS WAY.
  • 00:22:01.030 --> 00:22:02.200
  • - A FEW BLOCKS, YES.
  • 00:22:02.220 --> 00:22:04.100
  • - SO AS WE SIT HERE, THIS CONVERSATION IS
  • 00:22:04.120 --> 00:22:08.200
  • SUPER RELEVANT FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS,
  • 00:22:08.220 --> 00:22:13.040
  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS -- THE BOOK "JERUSALEM"
  • 00:22:13.060 --> 00:22:17.080
  • BY JAY SEKULOW, IT WAS JUST AN ABSOLUTE
  • 00:22:17.100 --> 00:22:23.220
  • PROVIDENTIAL THING BECAUSE THAT BOOK WAS
  • 00:22:23.240 --> 00:22:27.010
  • ALREADY PLACED AT A SECULAR DISTRIBUTOR,
  • 00:22:27.030 --> 00:22:30.140
  • A BIG HUGE PUBLISHING COMPANY, AND JAY PAUSED
  • 00:22:30.160 --> 00:22:34.200
  • FOR A MOMENT, AND WE GOT ON THE PHONE,
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:37.080
  • AND I SAID, JAY, LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER.
  • 00:22:37.100 --> 00:22:41.280
  • THIS BOOK "JERUSALEM" WAS WRITTEN BASICALLY
  • 00:22:42.000 --> 00:22:46.120
  • LIKE HE WOULD HAVE WRITTEN A SUPREME COURT CASE.
  • 00:22:46.140 --> 00:22:50.290
  • IT IS WHY THE JEWS HAVE A RIGHT TO THIS LAND,
  • 00:22:51.010 --> 00:22:55.200
  • WRITTEN BY JAY SEKULOW.
  • 00:22:55.220 --> 00:22:57.140
  • THE INFORMATION IS ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:22:57.160 --> 00:23:01.230
  • IT IS THIS MONTH'S BOOK OFFER, AND I WANT
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:06.100
  • YOU TO GET IT.
  • 00:23:06.120 --> 00:23:07.280
  • BUT JAY SEKULOW WROTE THIS JUST LIKE IF HE
  • 00:23:08.000 --> 00:23:10.170
  • HAD BEEN ASKED TO GO TO THE SUPREME COURT...
  • 00:23:10.190 --> 00:23:12.260
  • - WHICH HE HAS DONE MANY TIMES.
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:14.150
  • - ...MANY TIMES, AND MAKE AN ARGUMENT ON
  • 00:23:14.170 --> 00:23:16.240
  • BEHALF OF ISRAEL AND THE JEWS AND THIS PART
  • 00:23:16.260 --> 00:23:20.100
  • OF THE WORLD AND THIS LAND.
  • 00:23:20.120 --> 00:23:22.120
  • BASICALLY, THE WORLD IS NOT FIGHTING AGAINST
  • 00:23:22.140 --> 00:23:25.000
  • ISRAEL. THEY'RE FIGHTING AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:23:25.020 --> 00:23:26.120
  • - EXACTLY.
  • 00:23:26.140 --> 00:23:28.030
  • - HE SPOKE IT. HE GAVE BORDERS.
  • 00:23:28.050 --> 00:23:30.000
  • HE GAVE THE LAND, AND ANYONE THAT CHOOSES TO
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:34.160
  • NOT RECOGNIZE THAT IS BASICALLY JUST FIGHTING AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:23:34.180 --> 00:23:38.010
  • - YES.
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:39.200
  • - JUST YOUR SHOW IN GENERAL,
  • 00:23:39.220 --> 00:23:41.160
  • WHEN DOES IT AIR ON TBN?
  • 00:23:41.180 --> 00:23:44.000
  • - IT AIRS FRIDAY NIGHTS 10:30 EASTERN
  • 00:23:44.020 --> 00:23:46.290
  • AND WEDNESDAY 6:30 EASTERN, THE TWO KIND
  • 00:23:47.010 --> 00:23:49.150
  • OF PRIME SPOTS TO WATCH IT.
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:51.040
  • IT ALSO AIRS AT A FEW LATER TIMES, BUT NEW
  • 00:23:51.060 --> 00:23:53.040
  • EPISODES EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT 10:30 EASTERN,
  • 00:23:53.060 --> 00:23:55.130
  • AND YOU CAN SEE THE RE-AIR ON WEDNESDAY
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:57.170
  • EVENINGS 6:30 EASTERN.
  • 00:23:57.190 --> 00:23:59.070
  • - FINAL THOUGHTS, ERICK STAKELBECK?
  • 00:23:59.090 --> 00:24:01.040
  • - NUMBER ONE, THE EMBASSY MOVE, MATT.
  • 00:24:01.060 --> 00:24:03.010
  • I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT IT UP AGAIN BECAUSE I
  • 00:24:03.030 --> 00:24:04.260
  • TALKED ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS IN THE NATURAL AT
  • 00:24:04.280 --> 00:24:06.180
  • FIRST, BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT THE PROPHETIC.
  • 00:24:06.200 --> 00:24:09.010
  • THE BOOK OF ISAIAH CHAPTER 40 SAYS, "THE
  • 00:24:09.030 --> 00:24:12.030
  • GLORY OF THE LORD WILL BE REVEALED, AND THE
  • 00:24:12.050 --> 00:24:14.220
  • ENTIRE WORLD WILL SEE IT." THEY'RE GOING TO
  • 00:24:14.240 --> 00:24:18.070
  • SEE IT RIGHT HERE WHERE WE'RE SITTING IN
  • 00:24:18.090 --> 00:24:20.010
  • JERUSALEM. THAT'S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:24:20.030 --> 00:24:21.240
  • JERUSALEM IS, ONCE AGAIN WITH THIS EMBASSY
  • 00:24:21.260 --> 00:24:23.230
  • MOVE, IT'S THE CENTER OF THE WORLD ONCE AGAIN.
  • 00:24:23.250 --> 00:24:26.270
  • THE GLORY OF THE LORD RIGHT HERE, RIGHT HERE
  • 00:24:26.290 --> 00:24:29.190
  • BEHIND US, AND WE'RE SITTING HERE
  • 00:24:29.210 --> 00:24:31.100
  • NOW OF THE SO THAT'S NUMBER ONE.
  • 00:24:31.120 --> 00:24:33.000
  • THAT'S THE MAIN THING TO TAKE AWAY ABOUT THE EMBASSY.
  • 00:24:33.020 --> 00:24:35.020
  • NUMBER TWO, WITH THE WATCHMAN, WE'RE GOING
  • 00:24:35.040 --> 00:24:38.020
  • TO CONTINUE TO BRING THE HARD-HITTING STORIES.
  • 00:24:38.040 --> 00:24:39.290
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, "MY PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK
  • 00:24:40.010 --> 00:24:42.090
  • OF KNOWLEDGE." WE BELIEVE PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:24:42.110 --> 00:24:45.010
  • RATHER KNOW THAN NOT KNOW, OUR TBN VIEWERS,
  • 00:24:45.030 --> 00:24:47.040
  • WHEN IT COMES TO IRAN AND HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH,
  • 00:24:47.060 --> 00:24:49.150
  • THESE THREATS THAT GATHER NOT ONLY AGAINST
  • 00:24:49.170 --> 00:24:51.220
  • ISRAEL, BUT AGAINST AMERICA.
  • 00:24:51.240 --> 00:24:53.090
  • ISRAEL IS JUST THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE
  • 00:24:53.110 --> 00:24:55.110
  • FOR US, STANDING IN THE GAP.
  • 00:24:55.130 --> 00:24:57.230
  • THE BARBARIANS ARE NOT JUST AT THE GATES HERE,
  • 00:24:57.250 --> 00:25:00.070
  • THEY ARE INSIDE THE GATES.
  • 00:25:00.090 --> 00:25:01.220
  • - YES.
  • 00:25:01.240 --> 00:25:03.100
  • - AND ISRAEL IS HOLDING THEM BACK FOR US.
  • 00:25:03.120 --> 00:25:05.050
  • WE'RE GOING TO HIT THOSE, BUT ALSO WE'RE
  • 00:25:05.070 --> 00:25:06.250
  • GOING TO CONTINUE TO BRING YOU THOSE GREAT
  • 00:25:06.270 --> 00:25:08.130
  • STORIES THAT PROVE, NUMBER ONE, THE TRUTH
  • 00:25:08.150 --> 00:25:10.090
  • OF THE BIBLE, THE ABSOLUTE IRREFUTABLE TRUTH.
  • 00:25:10.110 --> 00:25:12.250
  • WHEN YOU COMBINE THE BIBLE WITH
  • 00:25:12.270 --> 00:25:15.150
  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL, SCIENTIFIC PROOF, YOU
  • 00:25:15.170 --> 00:25:17.170
  • HAVE AN UNBEATABLE COMBINATION.
  • 00:25:17.190 --> 00:25:19.080
  • WE'RE GOING TO SHOW THAT, BUT ALSO I WANT
  • 00:25:19.100 --> 00:25:21.040
  • TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING
  • 00:25:21.060 --> 00:25:23.040
  • IN THIS LAND AND HOW IT IMPACTS THEM, THE

  • MEDICAL, THE SCIENTIFIC, THE AMAZING

  • HIGH TECH BREAKTHROUGHS.
  • 00:25:26.230 --> 00:25:28.180
  • MATT, I BELIEVE IF THERE'S A CURE FOR
  • 00:25:28.200 --> 00:25:30.120
  • ALZHEIMER'S OR CANCER FOUND SOON, IT WILL BE
  • 00:25:30.140 --> 00:25:32.020
  • FOUND RIGHT HERE IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:25:32.040 --> 00:25:34.170
