The Brody File: The Rise Of Marco Rubio - December 10, 2015

This week’s Brody file show focuses exclusively on GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio as we go behind the scenes with him in Iowa during his meeting with pastors. Plus, a one-on-one interview and his stirring presentation of the Gospel. Read Transcript


David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO

ANOTHER EDITION OF THE "THE

BRODY FILE."

LOOK WHERE WE ARE?

WE'RE ON THE ROAD AGAIN.

NOT REALLY, WE JUST

STEPPED OUTSIDE THE

STUDIO.

WE'RE IN THE CBN NEWSROOM.

IT IS BRODY FILE

HEADQUARTERS.

WE DO NOT PLAY AROUND.

DO NOT MESS WITH US.

BY THE WAY, ON THE SHOW

THIS WEEK, MARCO RUBIO.

HE IS ON THE WHOLE SHOW,

THE WHOLE 30 MINUTES.

GRAB A DRINK AND BUCKLE

THE SEAT BELT.

WE'RE IN IOWA WITH HIM.

THERE IS THE PROVERBIAL

WALK SHOT WITH RUBIO.

HE IS IN THE TOP TIER, TOP

FOUR NATIONALLY IN THE

POLLS.

HE WAS MEETING WITH

PASTORS, A CLOSED DOOR

MEETING, EXCEPT FOR "THE

BRODY FILE" CAMERAS.

THAT'S RIGHT, WE WERE

THERE.

AND PASTORS PRAYING FOR

MARCO RUBIO.

ALL OF THAT TO COME ON THE

SHOW.

FIRST A SCENE-SETTER,

MARCO RUBIO, ONE-ON-ONE.

MORE WITH THE PASTORS,

HAVE A LOOK.

SO FAR IN THIS

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN,

MARCO RUBIO'S BEST MOMENTS

HAVE COME ON THE DEBATE

STAGE.

FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I

DON'T KNOW WHY WE HAVE

STIGMATIZED VOCATIONAL

EDUCATION.

WELDERS MAKE MORE MONEY

THAN PHILOSOPHERS.

David: COMBINE THOSE

MOMENTS WITH A PRO-AMERICA

PERSONAL STORY ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL --

THIS IS NOT THE NATION

I WAS BORN IN.

THIS IS THE COUNTRY THAT

LITERALLY CHANGED THE

HISTORY OF MY FAMILY.

MY PARENTS WERE BOTH BORN

INTO POOR FAMILIES ON THE

ISLAND OF CUBA.

David: AND YOU HAVE

A CANDIDATE ON THE RISE.

BEHIND THE SCENES

DEMOCRATS SAY THEY WOULD

RATHER NOT TAKE HIM ON IN

THE GENERAL ELECTION.

WORD ON THE STREET INSIDE

THE HILLARY CLINTON

CAMPAIGN, THEY ARE VERY

WORRIED ABOUT YOU.

SHOULD THEY BE WORRIED?

I THINK IF I'M THE

NOMINEE, WE'RE GOING TO

BEAT HER.

I BELIEVE, WITH ALL DUE

RESPECT, I GIVE OUR PARTY

THE BEST CHANCE TO WIN

THIS ELECTION.

David: WITH ALL DUE

RESPECT, HE HAS A CROWDED

FIELD TO PASS, ESPECIALLY

IN IOWA, WHERE VOTERS GET

FIRST CRACK.

TED CRUZ, BEN CARSON,

DONALD TRUMP, THEY'RE ALL

DOING WELL HERE.

AND RUBIO KNOWS HE WILL

NEED TO SCORETHE

EVANGELICALS IN THE

HAWKEYE STATE.

THANKSGIVING WEEK CBN NEWS

GAVE IN EXCLUSIVE ACCESS

INSIDE A PRIVATE MEETING

WITH RUBIO AND ABOUT 100

PASTORS IN BOTH CEDAR

RAPIDS AND DES MOINES.

IT WAS SPONSORED BY THE

INFLUENTIAL URBAN RENEWAL

PROJECT.

TO IGNORE OUR CHRISTIAN

VALUES IS TO IGNORE OUR

PRINCIPLES.

THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED ON

THE BELIEF THAT EVERY

PERSON HAS NATURAL RIGHTS

THAT COME FROM THEIR

CREATOR.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A

CREATOR, THEN WHAT IS THE

SOURCE OF YOUR RIGHTS?

THE GOVERNMENT?

THE LAW?

David: INSIDE THE

ROOM, RUBIO TOOK THE

OPPORTUNITY TO TELL

PASTORS MORE ABOUT

HIMSELF, LIKE HIS

SHORT-LIVED COLLEGE

FOOTBALL CAREER.

I REALIZED I WAS

DESTINED FOR THE NATIONAL

FOOTBALL LEAGUE, EXCEPT

FOR MY LACK OF SIZE, FEET,

AND TALENT.

> TODAY WE HAVE A

PRESIDENT THAT TREATS

ISRAEL WITH LESS RESPECT

THAN WHAT HE GIVES THE

AYATOLLAH AND IRAN.

David: AND RADICAL

ISLAM.

THEY BELIEVE THAT ONE

DAY THE STATE OF IOWA, OR

TODAY WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE

STATE OF IOWA, WILL BE

GOVERNED BY ISLAMIC LAW.

David: RUBIO

EXPANDED ON THE RELIGIOUS

NATURE OF THIS CAMPAIGN.

THE REASON WHY THE

RELIGION IS IMPORTANT IS

BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT MOTE

MOTIVATING SOMETHING.

IN THE CASE OF RADICAL

ISLAM, THEY ARE MOTIVATED

BY THEIR INTERPRETATION OF

THEIR FAITH, WHICH THEY

BELIEVE OBLI GAISES GATES OBLIGATES THEM TO

KILL ANYONE WHO DOES NOT

ACCEPT THEIR TEACHING.

David: AND RUBIO

ADDRESSED A GROWING FEAR

INSIDE OUR COUNTRY, THE

THREAT TO RELIGIOUS RIGHTS

UNDER THE CONSTITUTION.

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS

NOT JUST THE RIGHT TO

BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU WANT,

IT IS A RIGHT TO ENJOY

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN

EVERYTHING YOU DO.

> THERE ARE A LOT OF

PASTORS AND OTHERS IN

CHURCHES I'VE RUN INTO

HAVE BECOME CONCERNED

ABOUT SPEAKING TRUTH ON

SOME OF THESE ISSUES

BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT

PEOPLE TO BE OFFENDED IN

THE PULPIT.

PEOPLE WANT TO HEAR HAPPY

TALK TIMES WHEN THEY SHOW

UP TO CHURCH.

BUT I THINK THOSE IN THE

PULPIT HAVE AN OBLIGATION

TO SPEAK THE TRUTH.

David: AND THOSE IN

THE PULPIT WANT TO KNOW

ABOUT RUBIO'S SPIRITUAL

TRUTH.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR

EXPERIENCE WITH THE LORD

JESUS CHRIST.

David: THAT OPENING

GAVE RUBIO A CHANCE TO

EXPLAIN HOW ATTENDING AN

EVANGELICAL CHURCH WITH

HIS WIFE BROUGHT HIS

CATHOLIC FAITH ALIVE.

I DIDN'T LEARN ABOUT

THE CATHOLIC FAITH UNTIL I

WENT TO A NON-CATHOLIC

CHURCH AND BECAME INFUSED

IN THE WORD OF GOD.

David: AND THEN WE

HEARD CANDIDATE RUBIO

MORPH INTO FASTER RUBIO.

AS FAR AS MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST, THE BEST WAY I

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DESCRIBE

IT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT

BELIEVERS IS: GOD BECAME A

MAN.

HE CAME DOWN TO EARTH AND

DIED FOR OUR SINS.

HE PROVIDED THE ULTIMATE

SACRIFICE BECAUSE UP TO

THAT POINT WE LIVED UNDER

THE LAW.

AND THE LAW MEANT WE HAD

TO SACRIFICE AN

UNBLEMISHED LAMB.

GOD SENT HIS OWN SON.

I WANTED TO KNOW HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST, AND, BOY, HE HAD A

GOOD ANSWER.

WE'RE PULLING FOR MARCO

RUBIO NOW.

David: BUT IT WASN'T

AN EASY WIN.

ONE CHALLENGER ASKED HIM

ABOUT HIS SUPPORT FOR PAUL

SINGER.

HOW DO I KNOW HE IS NOT

GOING TO DIRECT YOU AND

SWAY A LARGE AMOUNT OF

INFLUENCE OVER YOU?

WHEN SOMEONE COOPERATES

WITH MY CAMPAIGN, THEY'RE

BUYING INTO MY AGENDA.

I AM NOT BUYING INTO THEIR

AGENDA.

THAT IS VERY CLEAR IN MY

HISTORY.

David: THAT SEEMED

TO DO THE TRICK.

I THINK MY FAVORITE

LINE IS WHEN HE SAID, WHEN

A DONOR GIVERS MONEY TO

ME, THEY BUY INTO ME; I

DON'T BUY INTO THEM.

I THINK THAT WAS WELL-PUT.

David: RUBIO SEES

THIS AS JUST THE BEGINNING

OF HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH

EVANGELICALS.

AND QUESTIONS STILL

REMAIN, BUT FOR NOW, RUBIO

IS MAKING NEW EVANGELICAL

FRIENDS AND GETTING PRAYED

UP IN THE PROCESS.

WE CLAIM THE WORD AND

WISDOM AND POWER OF THE

MIGHTY ONE TO BE UPON YOU

NOW.

David: MARCO RUBIO,

YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE WHAT HE

WAS SAYING ABOUT THE

GOSPEL.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE

OF THAT A LITTLE LATER.

BUT NEXT, MARCO RUBIO AND

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, WHAT'S

THE DEAL?

WHAT IS HIS POSITION

EXACTLY?

AND DOES IT CONFLICT WITH

THE BIBLE WHEN IT COMES TO

THE NEXT STEP IN TERMS OF

FIGHTING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE?

SOME INTERESTING COMMENTS

FROM MARCO RUBIO WHEN "THE

BRODY FILE" ROLLS ON.

David: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE," ON THE ROAD HERE IN

THE CBN NEWS ROOM HERE IN

D.C.

WE JUST STEPPED OUT OF THE

STUDIO, BUT IT SOUNDS

COOL.

AMBER C. STRONG, ARE WE

GOING TO GET A PER DIEM

CHECK?

WE'RE GETTING CASH FOR

BEING HERE.

THAT'S NOT REALLY TRUE.

MARCO RUBIO AND SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

TED CRUZ, MIKE HUCKABEE,

VERY OUTSPOKEN ON THE

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE ISSUE

WHEN THE SUPREME COURT

MADE THEIR RULING.

MARCO RUBIO HAS BEEN, TOO,

BUT IT IS VERY INTERESTING

TO HEAR SOME OF HIS

COMMENTS TO PASTORS ABOUT

THIS WHEN IT COMES TO THIS

ISSUE BECAUSE HE IS

TALKING ABOUT A COUPLE

BIBLICAL PRECEPS, IF YOU

WILL, ONE ABOUT OBEYING

CIVIL AUTHORITIES AND

ABOUT FOLLOWING GOD'S

RULES AND WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN THE TWO CONFLICT.

HAVE A LOOK AT HIS ANSWER.

THEY WANTED TO KNOW WAS

THAT AN ACCURATE REPORT

RELATED TO THAT.

COULD YOU HELP US

UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS

AS TO HOW WE OUGHT TO

RESPOND NOW, AND YOU, AS

PRESIDENT RUBIO, HOW WOULD

YOU RESPOND?

LIKE ANYTHING ELSE IN

THE WORLD, THAT WAS A

PARAPHRASE OF HOW THE

MEDIA CHOSE TO INTERPRET

WHAT I SAID.

THE SUPREME COURT DECISION

IS THE CURRENT LAW OF THE

COUNTRY.

IT IS NOT THE SETTLED LAW

OF THE COUNTRY FOR TWO

REASONS.

NUMBER ONE, BECAUSE THERE

IS NO SUCH THING AS

SETTLED LAW IN AMERICA.

WE'VE HAD PLENTY OF

SUPREME COURT PRECEDENTS

THAT HAVE BEEN OVERTURNED.

AND THE OTHER IS WE HAVE A

LEGISLATIVE PROCESS.

THERE IS NOT A SINGLE LAW

IN OUR BOOK THAT CANNOT BE

CHANGED.

AND THERE IS NOT A SINGLE

LAW IN THE SUPREME COURT

THAT CANNOT BE REVERSED BY

SETTLEMENT.

IT IS AN INTERESTING

QUESTION BECAUSE, AGAIN,

IT ASKS US TO RELY ON

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES.

THERE IS A LOT OF TALK

ABOUT SOME SORT OF CIVIL

DISOBEDIENCE TO THE COURT.

I THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT IT

AND I PRAYED ABOUT IT.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE BIBLE,

WE DRAW OUR CONCLUSION

FROM THE BIBLE THAT WE ARE

COMMANDED TO DO TWO

THINGS: ONE IS TO RESPECT

CIVIL AUTHORITY, BUT THE

OTHER IS NEVER TO VIOLATE

GOD'S LAWS EVEN AT THE

COMMAND OF CIVIL

AUTHORITY.

EVERY TIME THERE HAS BEEN

DISOBEDIENCE OF CIVIL

AUTHORITY AS A RESULT OF

ONE OF TWO THINGS: YOU'RE

BEING DIRECTLY ORDERED TO

VIOLATE GOD, IN OTHER

WORDS, YOU'RE BEING

PERSONALLY ORDERED TO SIN.

IF I'M A PREACHER, AND I'M

BEING FORCED TO PERFORM A

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, AND YOU

ARE A PERSON OF FAITH, YOU

ARE TO REFUSE TO DO THAT

BECAUSE YOU ARE BEING

ORDERED TO SIN.

AND YOU SHOULD NOT

PERSONALLY BE SINNING.

IF YOU'RE A BUSINESS OWNER

AND YOU ARE A DEEP

BELIEVER IN YOUR FAITH,

AND YOU'RE BEING FORCED AS

PART OF YOUR JOB OR YOUR

WORK TO SIN, YOU ARE TO

DISOBEY THAT ORDER.

THE SECOND ASH IS BROADER

TO SOCIETY IN GENERAL: IF

YOU LIVE IN A SOCIETY

WHERE THERE IS NO MEANS BY

WHICH TO CHANGE THE LAW,

THEN YOU ARE TO ALSO

REFUSE TO A ABIDE BY IT.

TODAY IN THIS COUNTRY, WE

STILL LIVE IN A REPUBLIC

WHERE WE CAN CHANGE THE

LAWS, AND WE SHOULD

INSPIRE TO DO SO.

AND AS LONG AS WE LIVE IN

A NATION THAT PROVIDES US

THE FREEDOMS AND THE

ABILITIES TO CHANGE THE

LAW THROUGH THE EXISTING

PROCESS OF A REPUBLIC, WE

SHOULD CONTINUE TO STRIVE

TO DO SO.

IF THE DAY SHOULD EVER

COME, WHERE WE ARE NO

LONGER ABLE TO CHANGE THE

LAW, THE SYSTEMS AND THE

LAWS WE HAVE IN PLACE,

THEN THAT IS WHERE CIVIL

DISOBEDIENCE WOULD BE

BIBLICALLY JUSTIFIED.

BUT AS LONG AS WE LIVE IN

A REPUBLIC WHERE WE CAN

ELECT NEW LEADERS, WHO CAN

APPOINT NEW JUDGES TO THE

SUPREME COURT, AND WE CAN

CONTINUE TO CHALLENGE IT

IN THAT WAY, WE ARE CALLED

TO DO THAT THROUGH THE

EXISTING PROCESS.

I BELIEVE WE CAN BE

SUCCESSFUL.

David: MARCO RUBIO

HERE ON "THE BRODY FILE."

I THINK HE IS GOING TO BE

HIT BY CONSERVATIVES,

MAYBE TED CRUZ OR MIKE

HUCKABEE, BECAUSE HE IS

SAYING IT IS CURRENT LAW,

AND NOT SETTLED LAWS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

EVANGELICALS AROUND THE

COUNTRY THAT SAY IT IS NOT

EVEN CURRENT LAW BECAUSE

THE SUPREME COURT DOESN'T

MAKE LAW.

THAT COULD BE A STORY LINE

IN THE FUTURE.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

MARCO RUBIO ON THE SYRIAN

REFUGEE CRISIS.

MORE WITH HIS COMMENTS,

HERE ON TH ON "THE BRODY FILE,"

NEXT.

David: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE," HERE IN THE CBN

NEWS ROOM.

THE WORLD HEADQUARTERS --

DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER

HEADQUARTERS?

THIS IS OUR HEADQUARTERS.

MARCO RUBIO TALKING ABOUT

THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS.

WE'VE GOT TO PLAY SOME OF

THAT FOR YOU.

WE TALKED TO HIM ABOUT IT

IN OUR INTERVIEW IN CEDAR

RAPIDS, IOWA.

TED CRUZ HAS TALKED ABOUT

THIS IDEA THAT CHRISTIAN

SYRIAN REGGIES SHOULD BE

LET INTO THIS COUNTRY, AND

NOT MUSLIMS.

WE TALKED ABOUT THAT IN

OUR INTERVIEW.

TED CRUZ HAS THIS VIEW

ABOUT HOW HE WANTS, IN

ESSENCE, CHRISTIANS TO BE

ALLOWED IN?

DO YOU THINK IT IS

FEASIBLE?

HERE IS WHAT I WOULD

SAY, NUMBER ONE, WE KNOW

THAT TERRORISTS AROUND THE

WORLD, ESPECIALLY ISIS,

ARE TRYING TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF THE REFUGEE

INFLUX ALL OVER THE WORLD

TO SNEAK IN FIGHTERS AMONG

THE INNOCENT PEOPLE.

NUMBER TWO, THERE IS A

REAL CHALLENGE IN VETTING

PEOPLE FROM THE MIDDLE

EAST.

IT IS NOT THAT WE SAY WE

DON'T WANT REFUGEES.

THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M

SAYING.

WHAT I'M SAYING IS WE

CAN'T ACCEPT REFUGEES THAT

WE CAN'T FULLY VET.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF

PEOPLE COMING FROM THE

MIDDLE EAST ARE PEOPLE YOU

CAN'T VET.

BUT COMMON SENSE APPLIES,

A 6-YEAR-OLD CHILD, A

90-YEAR-OLD WIDOW, AN

ESTABLISHED PRIEST, THAT

YOU CAN DO BACKGROUND ON,

AND THAT'S FINE.

BUT THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE

COMING FROM THE MIDDLE

EAST ARE NOT THEM.

SO WE NEED TO TURN TO OUR

ALLIES IN THAT REGION,

INCLUDING SAUDI ARABIA AND

EGYPT AND ASK THEM TO TAKE

SOME OF THESE REFUGEES.

CULTURALLY, THEY'RE MORE

ALIGNED WITH THESE PEOPLE.

THEY'RE CLOSER TO THEIR

HOME, SO THEY CAN RETURN

ONCE THE FIGHTING HAS

STOPPED.

IT MAKES A LOT MORE SENSE

THAN TRAVELLING ACROSS THE

WORLD TO A COUNTRY WHERE

IT WILL BE HARD TO

ASSIMILATE.

JORDAN HAS DONE THEIR FAIR

SHARE, BUT THE OTHER

COUNTRIES HAVE NOT.

David: WHEN W MARCO RUBIO

MORVETIOMORPHS INTO MARCO RUBIO

THE PASTOR.

SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT

TO MISS.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE" HERE IN THE

CBN NEWS ROOM.

MARCO RUBIO TALKING ABOUT

JESUS AND THE GOSPEL, AND

"THE BRODY FILE" HAS IT

ALL.

WE GOT IT ON TAPE.

IT WAS FASCINATING.

HE MADE THE SPEECH, IF YOU

WILL -- OR HE MADE THE

REMARREMARKS TO PASTORS IN DES

MOINES, IOWA.

IT WAS A CLOSED-DOOR

SESSION.

I DON'T THINK I HAVE SEEN

A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

WAX POETIC, AND

BRILLIANTLY AT THAT, LIKE

MARCO RUBIO DID IN IOWA.

AS FAR AS MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST, THE BEST WAY I

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DESCRIBE

IT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT

BELIEVERS IS: GOD BECAME A

MAN.

HE CAME DOWN TO EARTH AND

DIED FOR OUR SINS.

HE PROVIDED THE ULTIMATE

SACRIFICE BECAUSE UP TO

THAT POINT WE LIVED UNDER

THE LAW.

THE LAW MEANT WE HAD TO

SACRIFICE AN UNBLEMISHED

LAMB TO COVER OUR SINS.

GOD SENT HIS OWN SON.

HE WAS WILLING TO DO WHAT

HE DOESN'T ASK ABRAHAM TO

DO.

HE SPARED ABRAHAM THAT

PAIN.

GOD WAS WILLING TO

SACRIFICE HIS OWN SON.

AND JUST IMAGINE HOW

PAINFUL THAT WAS.

AND HE BECAME A MAN.

AND THE REASON HE HAD TO

BECOME A MAN WAS NOT JUST

THE ELEMENT OF BECOMING A

MAN AND DYING FOR OUR SINS

AS THE ULTIMATE TASK, THAT

DIDN'T COVER OUR SINS, BUT

COMPLETELY ERASED THEM.

GOD WEPT IN PAIN BECAUSE A

FRIEND THAT HE LOVED DIED.

HE FELT COMPASSION FOR

PEOPLE.

HE PROBABLY HAD THE FLU OR

A COLD.

HE FELT PAIN IN HIS FLESH

NOT JUST ON HIS

CRUCIFIXION, BUT MULTIPLE

TIMES THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE.

HE WAS A HUMAN BEING IN

EVERY WAY, AND YET HE WAS

FREE OF SIN.

SO THERE IS NOTHING THAT

WE'RE GOING TO BE ASKED TO

DO IN OUR LIFE THAT HE

DIDN'T DO HIMSELF.

ONE THING IS TO BE A

DISTANT GOD THAT SITS ON

HIS THRONE, REMOVED FROM

THE EVERYDAY SUFFERING OF

MAN.

THE OTHER IS TO BE A

GOD-MAN, WHO ACTUALLY

LIVED AS WE LIVED.

WHO FELT ALL OF THE PAIN,

AND ALL OF THE EMOTIONS,

AND EVERYTHING WE EVER

FELT.

JESUS HAD FEAR.

NOT FEAR IN AN UNBIBLICAL

WAY, BUT HE KNEW WHAT WAS

ABOUT TO HAPPEN TO HIM.

HE PRAYED IF IT WAS

POSSIBLE -- HOW MANY TIMES

HAVE WE MADE THAT PRAYER,

AND WE WEREN'T FACING

CRUCIFIXION.

IMAGINE THE FEAR OF

KNOWING THAT YOU'RE ABOUT

TO BE NAILED TO A CROSS,

HUNG NAKED, HUMILIATED,

SPIT UPON, REJECTED BY

YOUR FRIENDS -- THERE IS

NOTHING WE WILL EVER FACE

THAT HE DIDN'T FACE TIMES

AN INFINITE AMOUNT.

THAT IS A RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

IT IS A PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH A GOD

THAT KNOWS ANYTHING WE

FACE BECAUSE HE'S FACED IT

MORNING WE'LL EVER BE ABLE

TO FACE IT.

THERE IS NO FEAR, NO

ANXIETY, NO OBSTACLE, NO

ADVERSITY THAT HE DIDN'T

FACE BEFORE WE DO, IN

FACT, MUCH MORE SO.

AND THAT'S HOW YOU HAVE A

PERSONAL FAITH.

AND THEN IT HAS TO BE

INFUSED BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

YOU KNOW PETER WAS A

DEEPLY FLAWED MAN, AND

PAUL WAS ANGRY, AND GIVEN

TO JUDGMENT.

GOD TURNED HIS WEAKNESS

INTO A STRENGTH.

THEY CAME TO ARREST JESUS

IN THE GARDEN, THE FIRST

THING HE DOES IS PULLS OUT

A KNIFE AND CUTS MALCOLM'S

EAR OFF.

BUT ONCE HE WAS INFUSED IN

THE SPIRIT, THAT

IMPULSIVENESS WAS USED AS

A PLAN.

GOD TURNED IT TO STRENGTH.

THAT'S WHAT THE SPIRIT

COMES TO PLAY IN OUR LIFE.

WE'RE ALL GIFTED WITH

DIFFERENT THINGS.

AND THEY MAY VERY WELL BE

A WEAKNESS TODAY, BUT GOD

CAN TURN IT INTO A

STRENGTH.

IT IS ABOUT ALLOWING THE

SPIRIT TO IN FUSE YOU, TO

COMPLETELY CONTROL YOU AND

GUIDE YOU, AND THE END

RESULT OF ALL THIS IS --

WE HAVE THIS LITURGY,

PEACE BE WITH YOU.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK

PEACE, NO ONE IS SHOOTING

AT EACH OTHER.

PEACE, EVERYBODY IS HAPPY.

THAT'S NOT TRUE PEACE.

TRUE PEACE IS WHATEVER IS

HAPPENING, NOT WORRYING

ABOUT A THING.

PEACE IN KNOWING TWO

THINGS ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN: ONE, GOD IS GOING

TO SHIELD YOU FROM THE

ADVERSITY.

HE IS GOING TO PROTECT YOU

FROM IT.

AND THE OTHER IS, GOD IS

GOING TO MAKE YOU GO

THROUGH THE ADVERSITY, BUT

HE IS GOING TO GIVE YOU

WHAT YOU NEED TO GET

THROUGH IT.

YOU CAN'T FORCE YOURSELF

TO BELIEVE THAT.

YOU HAVE TO PRAY FOR THAT.

THAT IS THE FRUIT OF THE

SPIRIT.

IF YOU TRULY BECOME TO

HAVE THAT, THEN YOU HAVE

THE SUPER NATURAL RAL

PEACE THAPEACETHAT CAN ONLY COME FROM

THE SPIRIT.

NOW I SOUND LIKE A

PREACHER.

THE THING ABOUT THAT PIECE

THAT IS SO IMPORTANT IS I

HONESTLY BELIEVE IT WAS A

MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO THE

GROWTH OF THE EARLY

CHURCH.

THE EARLY CHURCH GREW IN A

PAGAN WORLD.

AND DESPITE THE FACT THAT

THEY KNEW IF YOU BECOME A

CHRISTIAN, THEY SET YOU ON

FIRE, TERRIBLE SUFFERING.

AND YET PEOPLE KEPT

JOINING.

AND I AM CONVINCED -- THIS

IS NOT NECESSARILY DEEPLY

BIBLICAL, BUT I AM

CONVINCED THAT ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT GOT SO MANY

PAGAN'PAGANS TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS IS, THEY WERE

SAYING, WHY ARE THESE

CHRISTIANS SO HAPPY?

WHY IS IT THEY HAVE SO

MUCH PEACE?

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THESE

PEOPLE?

AND WHEN THAT PEACE IS

TRUE IN YOU, PEOPLE WANT

TO KNOW ABOUT YOU.

WHAT DOES THAT PERSON

HAVE, BECAUSE I WANT SOME

OF THAT.

David: WHEN WE COME

BACK, PASTORS PRAYING FOR

MARCO RUBIO.

TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF

THIS VIDEO.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW IT TO

YOU WHEN WE COME BACK.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE" HERE IN THE

CBN NEWSROOM, BRODY FILE

HEADQUARTERS.

THE SPONSOR OF THE EVENT

WE HAVE BEEN SHOWING YOU

IS THE AMERICAN RENEWAL

PROJECT.

THEY'RE ARE THE ONES

BEHIND MARCO RUBIO COMING

TO MEET WITH PASTORS.

THEY DO SOME MAJOR

INFLUENTIAL WORK AROUND

THE COUNTRY, TRYING TO GET

PASTORS TO RUN FOR OFFICE,

AND TO ENGAGE IN THE JUDEO

CHRISTIAN VALUES OF TODAY.

TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE

VIDEO INSIDE THE ROOM.

BECAUSE AT THE END OF EACH

OF THESE SESSIONS, THE

PASTORS GATHERED AROUND

MARCO RUBIO AND PRAYED FOR

HIM.

IT IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL.

TAKE A LOOK.

AND WE CLAIM THE FAVOR

AND WISDOM AND POWER OF

THE MIGHTY ONE TO BE UPON

YOU NOW AS A PUBLIC

SERVANT AS A CANDIDATE OF

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES, THAT YOU

WOULD PLACE IN HIM THE

WISDOM OF SOLOMON, THE

HUMILITY OF MOSES, THE

COURAGE OF DAVID, THE MIND

OF THE APOSTLE PAUL, THE

FEARLESSNESS OF PETER, AND

THE HEART OF OUR LORD

JESUS CHRIST.

AND WE PRAY THIS FOR YOUR

GLORY AND YOUR PURPOSES IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

GOD BLESS YOU, SENATOR.

David: MARCO RUBIO

GETTING PRAYED UP ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

A BIG THANKS TO LOREN OUT

THERE IN IOWA WHO SHOT ALL

OF THAT VIDEO.

THAT DOES IT FOR THIS

WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT TIME,

EVERYBODY, GOD BLESS YOU.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
