On this week's edition of The Watchman, we interview Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, about the new authorized biography on his life and work, "The Bridge Builder." We also recap ... Read Transcript


Erick: AND WELCOME TO

THTHE WATCHMAN.

2016 STARTED OFF THE WAY

2015 LEFT OFF, NOT VERY

GOOD.

WE'VE SEEN JIHADISTS CARRY

OUT ATTACKS FROM INDONESIA

TO TURKEY TO BURKINA FASO,

CLOSER TO HOME.

WE'VE SEEN AN ISIS

SUPPORTER SHOOT A POLICE

OFFICER PARKED ON THE

STREET AT POINT-BLANK

RANGE.

NASTY STUFF.

BUT AMID THIS RELENTLESS

BARAGE OF GRIM NEWS COMES

A GLIMMER OF HOPE.

FINALLY SAEED ABEDINI, AN

AMERICAN PASTOR, WHO SPENT

THE PAST THREE YEARS PLUS

LANGUISHING IN AN IRANIAN

PRISON IS A FREE MAN.

HE WAS IN PRISON BECAUSE

HE IS A CHRISTIAN AND HE

REFUSED TO RENOUNCE JESUS

CHRIST.

WE'VE COVERED THE STORY

VERY CLOSELY HERE AT CBN

NEWS, AND WE KNOW THAT

BELIEVERS AROUND THE WORLD

HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR

PASTOR SAEED.

WELL, PRAYER WORKS.

AND GOOD MOVED.

HERE IS MORE ON SAEED'S

RELEASE FROM MY CBN

COLLEAGUE, GEORGE THOMAS.

George: IT IS THE

NEWS CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD HAVE BEEN PRAYING

AND HOPING TO HEAR: PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI IS FREE

AFTER NEARLY FOUR YEARS IN

AN IRANIAN PRISON.

I THINK THIS WAS A GOD

MOMENT, BECAUSE AS MUCH AS

OUR LAWYERS WORKED REALLY

HARD AND OUR TEAMS AROUND

THE GLOBE WORKED REALLY

HARD, AND THERE WERE

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

PRAYING, FROM AS MANY

LANGUAGESS THERE ARE

PEOPLE GROUPS.

George: IN AN

EXCLUSIVE WITH CBN NEWS,

HIS WIFE, NAGHMEH, TOLD ME

HOW SHE TOLD HER CHILDREN

THEIR FATHER IS COMING

HOME.

IT WAS 7:30 ON A

WEEKDAY, AND THEY WERE

JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND IT

WAS VERY LOUD AND JOYFUL.

I COULD SEE A HEAVY WEIGHT

LIFTED OFF THEIR LITTLE

SHOULDERS.

George: AND SHE ALSO

SPOKE ABOUT THE E-MAILS

LEAKED IN NOVEMBER, CITING

HER DECISION TO END PUBLIC

ADVOCACY FOR THE PASTOR

BECAUSE OF MARITAL ISSUES.

I WAS WORKING WITH THE

DIFFERENT GOVERNMENTS

TRYING TO GET HIM OUT.

SO I LOVE HIM, BUT THERE

ARE SERIOUS ISSUES WE NEED

TO DEAL WITH ONCE HE IS

HOME.

George: IRANIAN STATE

TV CONFIRMED THE NEWS ON

SATURDAY.

THE GENERAL PROSECUTOR

SAID THAT BASED ON

DECISIONS OF THE COUNTRY'S

SUPREME SECURITY COUNCIL,

FOUR IRANIAN PRISONERS

WITH DUAL NATIONALITIES

HAVE BEEN FREED WITHIN THE

FRAMEWORK OF PRISONER

SWAPPING.

George: IT COMES ON

THE OUTSET OF A NUCLEAR

DEAL.

THE ADMINISTRATION HAD

DENIED THERE WAS ANY

TIE-IN BETWEEN THE

SANCTIONING AND THE

DISCUSSIONS AND THE

AMERICANS BEING RELEASED.

George: AND ALSO

RELEASED WAS AMIR MIRZA

HEKMATI, JASON RAZAIAN,

ALONG WITH AT LEAST TWO

OTHER PRISONERS.

THE WHITE HOUSE SOURCE

TELLS CBN NEWS IN RETURN

FOR THE RELEASE, THE U.S.

WILL EITHER PARDON OR DROP

CHARGES AGAINST AT LEAST

SIX IRANIANS.

WE DON'T HAVE THE

DETAILS ON WHO THEY ARE.

THAT HAS NOT BEEN

RELEASED, AND I DON'T

EXPECT IT WILL BE TODAY.

WHAT I SURMISED FROM THE

CONVERSATIONS I HAD OVER

THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS,

ACTUALLY, WERE THESE WERE

GOING TO BE INDIVIDUALS

THAT WERE NOT DESIGNATED

TERRORISTS.

George: AND IRAN HAS

COMMITTED TO CONTINUE

COOPERATING WITH THE

UNITED STATES TO DETERMINE

THE WHEREABOUTS OF ROBERT

LEVINSON, WHO HAS BEEN

HELD IN IRAN SINCE 2007.

HIS FAMILY POSTED THIS

STATEMENT ON LINE: "WE ARE

HAPPY FOR THE OTHER

FAMILIES, BUT ONCE AGAIN

BOB LEVINSON HAS BEEN LEFT

BEHIND."

#WHAT ABOUT BOB?

Erick: WE ARE ALL

HAPPY ABOUT PASTOR SAEED'S

LONG OVERDUE RELEASE.

WE THANK GOD HE IS HOME

SAFE AND SOUND.

BUT A BIG WORD OF CAUTION

HERE TO ANYONE WHO THINKS

THE IRANIAN REGIME HAS

SUDDENLY CHANGED ITS SPOTS

AND BECOME MODERATE.

YES, THE IRANIANS RELEASED

PASTOR SAEED AND THREE

OTHER AMERICANS AS PART OF

THE SWAP, WHO HAD BEEN

HELD IN CAPTIVITY.

BUT THIS WAS A PRISONER

SWAP, NOT A GIFT FROM THE

IRANIANS.

REMEMBER, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION ALSO GAVE

UP SEVEN IRANIANS WHO HAD

BEEN IN AMERICAN CUSTODY

IN ORDER TO SECURE THE

RELEASE OF PASTOR SAEED

AND THE OTHERS.

ALSO, AND MUCH MORE

IMPORTANTLY, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS

RELEASING UP TO

$150 BILLION IN SANCTIONS

RELIEF TO THE IRANIAN

REGIME.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE SAME DAY THE PRISONERS

WERE RELEASED, THE

DISASTEROUS IRAN NUCLEAR

DEAL WENT INTO AFFECT.

FOLKS, THAT MEANS THE

WORLD'S NUMBER ONE STATE

SPONSOR OF TERRORISM WILL

NOW BE FLUSH WITH CASH TO

CONTINUE TO SPREAD CHAOS

ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST AND

THE WORLD.

AT THE SAME TIME, IRAN

CONTINUES TO DEVELOP

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

MISSILES, ICBMs, THAT

COULD ONE DAY REACH THE

UNITED STATES.

YOU ONLY BUILD ICBMs FOR

ONE REASON, FOLKS: TO

MOUNT THEM WITH A NUCLEAR

WARHEAD.

BUT I'M SURE THIS IS ALL

JUST A COINCIDENCE, JUST

AS I'M SURE CHANTING

"DEATH TO AMERICA" CALLING

THE UNITED STATES "THE

GREAT SATAN" AND WISHING

OFOR OUR DESTRUCTION IS

JUST BLUSTER FOR IRANIAN

CONSUMPTION.

FOLKS, IF HISTORY TEACHES

US ANYTHING, IT'S THIS:

WHEN SOMEBODY TELLS YOU

THEY WANT TO KILL YOU, YOU

SHOULD LISTEN TO THEM AND

TAKE THEM AT THEIR WORD.

IT'S TIME TO WAKE UP.

> WELL, IRAN IS NOT ONLY

THREATENING ISRAEL AND THE

WEST.

IT IS ALSO LOCKED IN A

REGIONAL COLD WAR WITH ITS

RIVAL, SAUDI ARABIA, THAT

IS QUICKLY HEATING UP.

HERE IS CBN'S MIDDLE EAST

BUREAU CHIEF, CHRIS

MITCHELL, WITH MORE.

Chris: THE ANIMATED

VIDEO SIMULATES AN IRANIAN

ATTACK USING MISSILES

FIRED FROM YEMEN.

THE ATTACK IS DESIGNED TO

CRIPPLE SAUDI ARABIA ON

MULTIPLE FRONTS.

IT STATES THAT IT IS A

RESPONSE TO THE

HALLUCINATIONS AND EMPTY

THREATS OF THE SAUDI CLAN.

AND THEY WILL EMERGE FROM

THE SLEEVE OF THE YEMENIS.

THE VIDEO REVEALS THE

COORDINATES OF SAUDI

ARABIA'S MAIN OIL

FACILITY, AND THEN SHOWS

THE MISSILES DESTROYING

THE FACILITY AND SETTING

THE AREA ON FIRE.

IT ALSO SIMULATES ATTACKS

ON SAUDI ARABIA'S CAPITAL,

RIYADH.

AND THEN IT SHOWS MISSILES

STRIKING THE SAUDI'S MAIN

AIR BASE AND CRIPPLING ITS

ANTIMISSILE SYSTEM.

AN IRANIAN EXPERT TOLD CBN

NEWS THAT THE GROUP BEHIND

THE FILM DOESN'T GET

FUNDING FROM THE

GOVERNMENT, BUT IT IS

AFFILIATED WITH THE

IRANIAN REVOLUTIONARY

GUARD CORPS AND GETS ITS

INSPIRATION FROM THEM.

THE RIVALRY BETWEEN SU SUNNI

SAUDI ARABIA AND SHI'ITE

IRAN STARTED.

THEY ALLOWED THEM TO

RANSACK THE SAUDI ARABIA

EMBASSY IN TEHRAN,

PROMPTING SAUDI ARABIA TO

CUT DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS

THE PAKISTAN WEIGHED IN ON

THE SIDE OF THE SAUDIS,

SAYING THEY WOULD WIPE

IRAN OFF THE MAP IF THEY

THREATENED THE TERRITORIAL

INTEGRITY OF SAUDI ARABIA.

THE CONCERN FOR MANY IN

THE REGION IS THAT THE

RIVALRY BETWEEN THE TWO

MIDDLE EAST TITANS WILL

ESCALATE FROM AWOO A VIDEO TO A

DIRECT CONFRONTATION ON

THE BATTLEFIELD.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Erick: UP NEXT, WHO

IS THE MAHDI, AND WHAT

DOES THE RISE OF RADICAL

ISLAM MEAN FOR THE WORLD?

AND WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

SAY ABOUT IT?

FIND OUT AFTER THE BREAK.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

PASTOR MICHAEL YOU'V UESEF IN

PASTOR AND AUTHOR OF MANY

GROUPS, INCLUDING MISBOOK

"END TIMES," AND THE

"SECRET MAHDI."

AND I ASKED HIM WHAT THE

BOOK OF REVELATION SAYS

ABOUT THE TIMES WE'RE

LIVING IN AND THE

ANTI-CHRIST.

TAKE A LOOK.

DOCTOR, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR JOINING US HERE ON

"THE WATCHMAN."

CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW

BOOK.

THANK YOU SO MUCH,

ERICK, THANK YOU FOR

HAVING ME.

DR. YOUCEF, WHAT A

TIMELY SUBJECT.

THE THING I LOVE ABOUT

YOUR BOOK IS YOU BREAK

DOWN COMPLEX SUBJECTS IN

SUCH AN EASY TO UNDERSTAND

WAY.

YEAH.

Erick: LET'S START

WITH A MAJOR TOPIC, THE

BOOK OF REVELATION.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK --

EVEN NOT BELIEVERS

THINK -- SOMETHING IS IN

THE AIR.

TIME MAY BE SHORT.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Erick: TALK WHY IT IS

IMPORTANT FOR BELIEVERS

AND NON-BELIEVERS A-LIKE

TO KNOW THE BOOK OF

REVELATION SAYS.

ABSOLUTELY.

ERICK, IT GRIEVES ME IN MY

SPIRIT WHEN I SEE

SO-CALLED EVANGELICAL

PASTORS WHO SAY WE DON'T

UNDERSTAND IT, IT IS FULL

OF SYMBOLISM, AND WE

SHOULD LEAVE IT ALONE.

AND THERE ARE OTHERS WHO

SEE IT ONLY AS A MAP FOR

THE FUTURE.

BUT FOR THOSE WHO SAY

LEAVE IT ALONE, THE BOOK

IS BRACKETED, AT THE FRONT

AND AT THE END, WITH A

BLESSING FOR THOSE WHO

READ IT AND UNDERSTAND IT

AND COMPREHEND IT.

THE ONLY BOOK IN THE

BIBLE, WITH TWO BLESSINGS,

ONE IN THE BEGINNING AND

ONE AT THE END, FOR THOSE

WHO READ IT.

THIS IS A BOOK FOR TODAY.

IT IS A BOOK FOR TODAY.

IT TELLS US EXACTLY HOW TO

LIVE WITH THE EXPECTATION

OF THE COMING OF CHRIST.

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE

HEADING UP TO THE

MOUNTAIN, PUTTING ON WHITE

ROBES.

NO.

IN FACT, REVELATION

COMPELS US TO SHARE CHRIST

WITH THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER

HEARD, OR THOSE WHO DON'T

BELIEVE, AND THAT WE

PERSUADE EVERY MAN, AS

PAUL SAID.

SO THAT'S REALLY THE HEART

OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

FURTHERMORE, IT IS THE

REVELATION OF JESUS, THE

GLORIFIED JESUS.

IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT

DRAGONS AND THE SEA AND

THINGS.

IT IS ABOUT JESUS, ALL

ABOUT THE REVELATION OF

JESUS.

Erick: IN THE BOOK,

YOU HAVE A CHAPTER CALLED

"A VISION OF HEAVEN."

WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A

SECOND.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION HAS

A GREAT ENDING IF YOU'RE A

BELIEVER. AND WE'LL TALK

ABOUT THAT GLORIOUS

ENDING.

> TODAY, WHEN YOU LOOK

AT ISIS AND IRAN -- THESE

ARE TWO APOCALYPTIC

MOVEMENTS -- YOU TALK

ABOUT THEIR IDEOLOGY

BECAUSE TERRORISM IS ONLY

A TACTIC THAT IS DRIVEN BY

THIS IDEOLOGY.

TALK ABOUT THE MAHDI, THE

ISLAMIC VERSION OF THE

MESSIAH, AND HIS

SIMILARITIES TO THE

ANTI-CHRIST.

RIGHT.

YOU KNOW, I AM VERY

CAREFUL TO BE ACCURATE SO

AS NOT TO OFFEND ANYBODY.

CERTAINLY I DON'T WANT TO

OFFEND THE MUSLIM PEOPLE.

I LOVE THEM.

I SHARE CHRIST WITH THEM.

BUT I WANT TO MAKE A

DISTINCTION THAT THE MAHDI

IS A CONCEPT THAT

MOSTLY -- NOT EXCLUSIVELY,

BUT MOSTLY A SHI'ITE

CONCEPT.

THE SUNNIS HAVE THEIR OWN

CONCEPT OF ESCOTOLOGY.

NAMELY -- AND I'LL SAY IT

VERY BRIEFLY -- THAT JESUS

HIMSELF IS GOING TO COME

BACK TO THE EARTH, AND HE

IS GOING TO DECLARE

HIMSELF A MUSLIM, AND THEN

HE IS GOING TO TURN ON THE

JEWS AND THE CHRISTIANS

AND DESTROY THEM.

IF YOU GO TO THE SHI'ITE,

IN THE 800s, WHERE THERE

IS THE SUCCESSOR OF THE

PROPHET, THEY BELIEVE THAT

THEIR SUCCESSOR, WHICH IS

THE COUSIN OF THE PROPHET,

IS DIFFERENT FROM THE

SUCCESSORS OF THE SUNNIS,

WHO WERE THE FRIENDS OF

THE PROPHET.

ALI AND HIS SON, HUSSEIN,

AND SO ON.

AND THEY GET GOING UNTIL

THE MIDDLE OF 800s.

AND THEN THE 12th

SUCCESSOR -- THE 12th

IMAM, OR WHAT YOU CALL THE

SUCCESSOR OF THE PROPHET,

DISAPPEARED AT THE AGE OF

FIVE.

AND SO AROSE A THEORY,

WHICH IS REJECTED BY THE

SUNNIS -- AND I WANT TO

MAKE SURE THAT THAT IS

SAID -- THAT HE IS

DISAPPEARING, BUT HE DID

NOT DIE.

HE IS WAITING AND HIDING

UNTIL SUCH A TIME WHEN THE

WORLD BECOMES SO CHAOTIC,

AND THEN HE WILL COME AND

BRING PEACE.

NOW HERE IS THE THING:

THEY WANT TO CREATE THE

CHAOS.

THEY WANT TO CREATE THE

TROUBLES SO THAT THE FORCE

CAN COME OUT OF HIDING.

SO THAT IS THE THEORY THAT

THE SHI'ITE PEOPLE ESPOUSE

REGARDING THE COMING OF

THEIR MAHDI.

Erick: AND YOU SEE

SHI'ITE DRIVING FOR A

NUCLEAR WEAPON -- TALK

ABOUT CHAOS.

YOU'RE A NATIVE OF EGYPT,

SO YOU SPEAK FROM A PLACE

OF REAL AUTHORITY WHEN IT

COMES TO RADICAL ISLAMIC

IDEOLOGY, AND JIHADIST

IDEOLOGY.

DRDR. YOUCEF, WE'LL HAVE

MORE WITH YOU AFTER THE

BREAK.

MORE ON THE ANTI-CHRIST

AND WHAT IS COMING, WITH

DR. YOUCEF, AFTER THE

BREAK.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

WE'RE TALKING TO

DR. MICHAEL YOUCEF, AUTHOR

OF THE GREAT NEW BOOK "END

TIMES," AND "THE SECRET OF

THE MAHDI."

DR. YOUCEF, A LOT OF

PEOPLE TODAY ARE WONDERING

WHO IS THE ANTI-CHRIST.

YOU HAVE A CHAPTER THAT

SAYS THE ANTI-CHRIST IS

NOT WHO YOU THINK HE IS.

TALK ABOUT THAT A BIT.

WELL, YOU KNOW, EVEN

THE APOSTLE JOHN -- HE

SAID THERE ARE MANY

ANTI-CHRISTS.

AND ANYONE WHO SETS

HIMSELF AGAINST CHRIST IS

AN ANTI-CHRIST WITH A

SMALL "A."

BUT THE BOOK OF DANIEL IS

THE FIRST ONE TO TELL US

ABOUT THIS CHARACTER, THE

MAN OF LAWLESSNESS THAT

PAUL DESCRIBED AGAIN IN

THE THESSALONIAN APOSTLES.

THIS PERSON IS GOING TO

RISE IN A TIME WHEN THE

WORLD IS DESPERATE FOR

PEACE.

AND HE IS GOING TO BRING

ABOUT ONE WORLD RELIGION,

ONE WORLD PEACE, UNITE THE

WORLD TOGETHER, BECAUSE HE

IS GOING TO GIVE THEM THE

PROMISE THAT HE IS GOING

TO BRING PEACE.

AND HE WILL MAKE A

COVENANT WITH ISRAEL.

BUT THEN THREE AND A HALF

YEARS LATER, HE WILL

RENEGE AND HE WILL TURN ON

ISRAEL.

BUT IN A PERIOD OF SEVEN

YEARS, THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST IS GOING TO COME

FROM HEAVEN, AND HE IS

GOING TO SMITE HIM AND

DESTROY HIM.

AND HE IS GOING TO REIGN

AND RULE FOREVER AND

FOREVER AND EVER.

THAT'S THE GREAT NEWS OF

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IT IS NOT WHO IS DOING

WHAT AND WHO IS GOING

WHERE, ALTHOUGH THESE ARE

IMPORTANT.

ALWAYS GO BACK TO THE END

CHAPTER BECAUSE WE READ IT

AND WE KNOW WE WIN.

THAT GIVES US CONFIDENCE.

THAT TAKES AWAY FEAR.

THAT LIFTS US UP EVERY

TIME WE SEE THE WORLD IN

TROUBLE.

SO THAT'S REALLY THE GOOD

NEWS.

THE REASON I WROTE THIS

BOOK -- THERE ARE A LOT OF

PASTORS AND THEOLOGIANS

WHO HAVE WRITTEN BOOKS ON

REVELATION.

I TAUGHT THROUGH THE BOOK

OF REVELATION, AND THEN I

WROTE A BOOK ON

REVELATION.

BUT AS I BEGAN TO STUDY --

AND I HAVE A Ph.D. WHERE

I ACTUALLY WENT TO THE

MIDDLE EAST IN THE EARLY

'80s, AND I MET WITH

SOME OF THESE JIHADIS, I

MET WITH THEM, TALKED WITH

THEM, INTERVIEWED THEM,

AND I GOT UNDER THEIR

SKIN, AND I TRIED TO

FIGURE OUT SOME OF THEIR

MOTIVATION AND WHO THEY'RE

WAITING FOR AND THE

CALIPHATE AND SO FORTH.

THROUGH THE YEARS, I BEGAN

TO DEVELOP A PICTURE THAT

WHAT THEY ARE THINKING OF

AS THE CALIPHATE IS A VERY

SIMILAR PERSON TO WHAT THE

BIBLE CALLS THE

ANTI-CHRIST.

THAT'S WHY I DECIDED THAT

REVELATION, WITHOUT THAT

EXPLANATION, DOES NOT GIVE

PEOPLE A FULLER PICTURE OF

THE PRESENT.

AND THAT'S WHAT I SOUGHT

TO DO.

Erick: AND IN THE

PRESENT, WE HAVE ISIS, OF

COURSE, WHO HAS DECLARED A

CALIPHATE IN THE HEART OF

THE MIDDLE EAST.

DO YOU THINK THAT ISIS IS

A SIGN OF THE TIMES?

THEY'RE OBVIOUSLY NOT

MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE

SPECIFICALLY, BUT IS THIS

A SIGN OF PERHAPS THE

ANTI-CHRIST SPIRIT YOU

TALK ABOUT IN THE BOOK?

IT HAS BEEN A SERIES OF

SUCCESS SESSION.

SUCCESSION.

IT STARTED WITH THE RAHADI

MOVEMENT, AND THEN IT CAME

IN THE 1920S TO EGYPT, BY

A MAN WHO FOUNDED THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

MOVEMENT.

THEN WHEN NASA TRIED TO

DESTROY THEM, THERE CAME

ANOTHER MOVEMENT, AND THEN

WHEN THAT WAS DESTROYED,

CAME JIHAD, AND FROM JIHAD

CAME al-QAEDA, AND FROM

al-QAEDA CAME ISIS.

REGARDLESS OF THE NAME,

YOU SEE THE DIRECTION.

IT IS HEADING IN THE SAME

DIRECTION.

AND EACH SUCCESSIVE

MOVEMENT BECOMES MORE

VIOLENT.

AND THEY WANT TO DESTROY

THE HADITH, AND ROME.

YOU RECALL WHEN THE 21

CHRISTIANS WERE BEHEADED

ON THE BEACHES OF LIBYAN,

THEY SAID THEY WANTED THE

BLOOD TO FLOW ON THE

MEDITERRANEAN TO ROME, AND

THEY SAID THEY WERE COMING

TO OCCUPY ROME, WITH AN

AMIR.

SO THE WHOLE DIRECTION

THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON

SINCE THE END OF THE

1800s, OF THIS

FUNDAMENTAL ISLAMIC

MOVEMENT, ALL MOVING IN

ONE DIRECTION.

NOW, WHETHER IT IS ISIS OR

THE SUCCESSOR OF ISIS --

REGARDLESS OF THE NAME,

THAT'S THEIR IDEOLOGY.

I WANT PEOPLE TO FOCUS ON

THE IDEOLOGY, NOT

NECESSARILY WHAT NAME THEY

ESPOUSE.

Erick: THAT IS A

FRIGHTENING THOUGHT, THERE

MAY BE SOMETHING EVEN

WORSE THAN ISIS COMING

DOWN THE ROAD.

I BELIEVE THAT.

Erick: I AGREE.

AND YOU LAID OUT THE

TRAJECTORY IN COMPELLING

FASHION HOW IT HAS GOTTEN

WORSE AND WORSE OVER THE

PAST FEW CENTURIES.

THANK YOU FOR THE BOOK.

YOU UNPACK EVERYTHING IN

THE BOOK OF REVELATION,

BUT IT ENDS WITH A

GLORIOUS VISION OF HEAVEN.

THAT'S THE END GAME HERE.

AS YOU SAID, THE BOOK HAS

A GREAT ENDING, AND WE

WIN.

BELIEVERS IN JESUS WIN.

AMEN.

Erick: AMEN.

THE BOOK IS "END TIMES AND

THE SECRET OF THE MAHDI."

I THINK THERE IS A WEBSITE

WE CAN GO TO.

www.endtimesecrets OR

LTW.ORG, AND YOU

PRE-ORDER IT.

YOU CAN PRE-ORDER IT NOW

SO WE MAIL IT TO YOU AS

SOON AS IT ARRIVES.

Erick: DOCTOR, THANK

YOU SO MUCH.

GOOD LUCK WITH THE BOOK.

> COMING UP, "THE

WATCHMAN" IS MOVING ON

FROM CBN NEWS.

IT IS BITTERSWEET TO SAY

THE LEAST.

SO WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOURS

TRULY?

FIND OUT AFTER THE BREAK.

Erick: WELCOME BACK.

FOLKS, I HAVE SPENT AN

INCREDIBLE 10 1/2 YEARS AT

CBN NEWS.

I STARTED WAY BACK IN MAY

OF 2005, AND, MAN, I HAVE

JUST HAD AN AMAZING

EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH

THE TOP TEAM IN ALL OF

CHRISTIAN NEWS.

I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN

CHRIST HERE AT CBN.

THEY'RE LIKE FAMILY TO ME.

AND I'M GOING TO MISS THEM

TERRIBLY.

THAT'S RIGHT.

I AM MOVING ON FROM CBN

NEWS INTO AN EXCITING NEW

VENTURE.

NOW, I CAN'T SHARE ANY

DETAILS ABOUT WHERE I'M

HEADING JUST YET, BUT I

CAN SAY I WILL STILL BE ON

CHRISTIAN TELEVISION, AND

I WILL BE TAKING A LARGER

ROLE IN THE PRO-ISRAEL

MOVEMENT.

IT IS GOING TO BE GOOD.

AND YOU WILL STILL BE

SEEING ME HERE ON CBN NEWS

PROGRAMS AS I POP UP ON

"THE 700 CLUB" AND

ELSEWHERE, PROVIDING

COMMENTARY AND ANALYSIS ON

THE MIDDLE EAST,

TERRORISM, AND RADICAL

ISLAM, EVERYTHING YOU HAVE

COME TO EXPECT FROM "THE

WATCHMAN."

IN THE MEANTIME, I EXPECT

TO BE MAKING SOME EXCITING

ANNOUNCEMENTS IN THE NEXT

FEW WEEKS ON Facebook

AND TWITTER, AND ALSO ON

ERICK STAKELBECK.COM,

SHARING DETAILS ABOUT MY

NEXT MOVE.

BUT ON THIS FINAL EPISODE

OF "THE WATCHMAN" ON CBN

NEWS, I JUST WANTED TO

THANK YOU, THE VIEWERS,

FOR YOUR STEADFAST SUPPORT

AND PRAYERS.

I COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT

WITHOUT YOU.

BELIEVE ME, WHEN WE

STARTED THIS SHOW BACK IN

JUNE 2010, IT WAS ACTUALLY

CALLED "STACSTAKELBECK ON

TERROR."

AND I HAVE HAD AN ABSOLUTE

BLAST COMING TO YOU EACH

WEEK.

I THANK GOD FOR ALL OF

YOU, AND FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS

PROGRAM.

AGAIN, YOU WILL STILL BE

SEEING ME HERE ON CBN

NEWS, AND IN A NEW VENUE,

BUT WITH THE SAME MESSAGE,

VERY SOON.

UNTIL THEN, FROM "THE

WATCHMAN," GOD BLESS,

THANK YOU.

AND REMEMBER, NEVER HOLD

YOUR PEACE.
