Efrem: AND THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

A CHARLOTTESVILLE JUDGE

DENIED BAIL FOR THE MAN

CHARGED WITH SECON SECOND-DEGREE

MURDER FOR PLOWING HIS CAR

INTO A CROWD OF PEOPLE ON

FRIDAY.

THE U.S. ATTORNEY-GENERAL

IS INVESTIGATING THE CASE.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIC

GONZALES IS FOLLOWING THIS

STORY.

[YELLING]

Reporter: SOME 48

HOURS AFTER A MAN PLOWED

HIS CAR INTO A CROWD OF

COUNTERPROTESTORS IN

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA,

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED OUT

THE HATE GROUPS FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE.

President Trump:

THOSE WHO CAUSE VIOLENCE

IN ITS NAME ARE CRIMINALS

AND THUGS.

INCLUDING THE K.K.K.,

NEONAZIS, WHITE

SUPREMACISTS, AND OTHER

HATE GROUPS THAT ARE

REPUGNANT TO EVERYTHING

THAT WE HOLD DEAR AS

AMERICANS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S STATEMENTS

CAME AFTER CRITICISM FROM

BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE

FOR NOT BEING STRONG

ENOUGH ON FRIDAY AFTER THE

FIRST ESPAO RESPONSE FOR THE

VIOLENCE.

BUT THE PRESIDENT IS

PROMISING JUSTICE.

A CIVIL RIGHTS

INVESTIGATION IS UNDER WAY

AND COULD BRING CHARGES

AGAINST 20-YEAR-OLD JAMES

ALEX FIELDS, JR.

JEFF SESSIONS CALLED THE

ATTACK EVIL AND ADDS, IT

MEETS THE DEFINITION OF

DOMESTIC TERRORISM.

WE ARE PURSUING IT WITH

THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

IN EVERY WAY THAT WE CAN

MAKE A CASE.

YOU CAN BE SURE WE WILL BE

CHARGE AND ADVANCE THE

INVESTIGATION TOWARDS THE

MOST SERIOUS CHARGES THAT

CAN BE BROUGHT BECAUSE

THIS IS AN UNACCEPTABLE

AND EVIL ATTACK.

ROSE THOS Reporter: THOSE WHO

HAVE KNOWN FIELDS SAY THEY

ARE NOT SURPRISED.

HE WAS VOCAL ABOUT HIS

IDEAS.

HE PROCLAIMED HIMSELF AS A

WHITE SUPREMACIST AND

NAZI.

Reporter: SUSAN BRO,

THE MOTHER OF HEATHER

HEYER, SAYS SHE IS GOING

TO MAKE HER DAUGHTER'S

DEATH WORTH SOMETHING.

I'M EXTREMELY PROUD OF

MY DAUGHTER.

I'M EXTREMELY PROUD OF

WHAT SHE STOOD FOR.

AND NOW SHE HAS GIVEN HER

LIFE FOR IT.

Reporter: PEOPLE

WROTE MESSAGES OF HOPE.

MEANWHILE, THE SUSPECT

AWAITS HIS NEXT COURT

DATE.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: THE IRANIAN

REGIME ISSUED A THREAT TO

THE UNITED STATES TUESDAY

SAYING IT COULD RELAUNCH

ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM WITHIN HOURS, IF

IT WANTED TO.

THIS COMES AFTER IRANIAN

LAWMAKERS MOVED TO

INCREASE SPENDING ON THE

COUNTRY'S BALLISTIC

MISSILE PROGRAM EARLIER

THIS WEEK.

THEIR PRESIDENT SAYS IT IS

A DIRECT RESPONSE TO THE

UNITED STATES, PLACING NEW

SANCTIONS ON IRAN, RUSSIA,

AND NORTH KOREA.

LAST WEEK PRESIDENT TRUMP

SAID HE DID THE NOT

BELIEVE IRAN WAS LIVING UP

TO THE SPIRIT OF THE

NUCLEAR DEAL.

> NORTH KOREA MAY BE

BACKING AWAY FROM ITS

THREAT TO ATTACK THE

AMERICAN TERRITORY OF

GUAM.

OUR DALE HURD IS FOLLOWING

THIS STORY.

Reporter: IT APPEARS

THAT NORTH KOREAN LEADER

KIM JONG-UN HAS BLINKED

FIRST.

THE NORTH KOREAN STATE

MEDIA REPORTS KIM HAS

DECIDED NOT TO LAUNCH A

THREATENED MISSILE ATTACK

ON GUAM.

BUT THE STATEMENT ALSO

WARNS THAT THE COMMUNIST

DICTATOR MIGHT CHANGE HIS

MIND IF, QUOTE, "THE

YANKEES PERSIST IN THEIR

EXTREMELY DANGEROUS,

RECKLESS ACTIONS."

IT WAS WELCOME NEWS TO THE

OFFICIALS ON GUAM.

WE'RE HAPPY THAT THE

RHETORIC IS STARTING TO

CALM DOWN, PERHAPS FROM

KIM JONG-UN, IN NOT, AT

LEAST PURSUING AT THE

MOMENT HIS THREATS TO FIRE

MISSILES AT GUAM.

Reporter: BUT AT THE

SAME TIME, PYONGYANG SAID

THEIR MILITARY PRESENTED

KIM JONG-UN'S PLAN TO

LAUNCH MISSILES INTO GUAM.

THE I'VE HEARD FOLKS

TALKING ABOUT WE'RE BEING

ON THE CUSP OF A NUCLEAR

WAR.

NO INTELLIGENCE WOULD

INDICATE THAT WE'RE IN

THAT PLACE TODAY.

Reporter: STILL,

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD WARNED

THE NORTH THAT THE U.S.

MILITARY WAS LOCKED AND

LOADED, AND THE CHAIRMAN

OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF

STAFF SAYS HIS FORCES ARE

READY.

THERE ARE TWO THINGS

WE'RE CLEAR ABOUT: ONE,

OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO

DEFEND AGAINST AN ATTACK.

AND, TWO, OUR REQUIREMENT

TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE A

DECISIVE RESPONSE IN THE

EVENT OF AN ATTACK.

Reporter: AND DEFENSE

SECRETARY JAMES MATTIS

WARNED ON MONDAY IF NORTH

KOREA FIRED A MISSILE AT

THE U.S., IT COULD

ESCALATE INTO WAR VERY

QUICKLY.

THE NORTH COULD BE LOOKING

FOR A CONCESSION, SUCH AS

A CANCELLATION OF

U.S.-SOUTH KOREAN MILITARY

DRILLS SET TO BEGIN ON

MONDAY, WHICH THE NORTH

CLAIMS ARE REHEARSALS FOR

INVASION.

NORTH KOREA BACKED AWAY

FROM ITS THREATS HOURS

AFTER ITS ALLY CHINA GOT

ON BOARD.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A DIVIDED

G.O.P. SPLIT BETWEEN

ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS

AND TEA PARTY

CONSERVATIVES SOUNDS LIKE

CAPITOL HILL IN

WASHINGTON, BUT SIMILAR

BATTLES ARE POPPING UP AT

THE STATE LEVEL.

WE TRAVELLED TO TEXAS NOW,

WHERE THIS DIVISION HAS

BROUGHT A BATHROOM BILL TO

THE VIRGE OF COLLAPSE.

Reporter: TEXAS

LAWMAKERS HAVE A SHORTER

SUMMER VACATION THINK THANKS TO

A 30 DAY SESSION CALLED BY

THE GOVERNOR.

BUT THE ISSUE GETTING THE

MOST ATTENTION IS THE

TEXAS PRIVACY ACT, OR MORE

COMMONLY KNOWN AS "THE

BATHROOM BILL."

IT WOULD REQUIRE PUBLIC

SCHOOLS AND GOVERNMENT

BUILDINGS TO LIMIT

BATHROOM USE TO A PERSON'S

GENDER AS REFLECTED ON

THEIR BIRTH CERTIFICATE OR

DRIVER'S LICENSE, AND KEEP

TRANSGENDER ATHLETES FROM

COMPETING IN HIGH SCHOOL

SPORTS.

IT INCLUDES TRANSGENDER

TEXANS, BIG BUSINESS, AND

LAW ENFORCEMENT.

WE HAVE NO TIME TO HARM

ANYONE.

WE'RE PART OF SOCIETY, AND

WE DESERVE TO BE TREATED

WITH RESPECT.

Reporter: THEY CALL

IT HATEFUL, BIGOTED, AND

AN ATTACK ON THEIR CIVIL

RIGHTS.

THE BILL'S AUTHOR SEES IT

DIFFERENTLY.

WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE

CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE OF OUR

TIME, I THINK THAT THIS

IS, FOR ME, A WOMEN'S

RIGHTS ISSUE OF OUR TIME.

Reporter: LOIS TOLD

CBN NEWS SHE SPENT A LOT

OF TIME IN PRAYER OVER THE

ISSUE.

I REALLY WENT INTO THIS

ABOUT PROTECTING WOMEN AND

CHILDREN IN THOSE INTIMATE

SPACES FROM WHAT WOULD BE

SEXUAL PREDATORS.

I THINK THAT THE

MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS

TURNED IT INTO SOMETHING

ELSE.

Reporter: WHILE IT

PASSED THE SENATE,

MODERATE REPUBLICAN

LEADERS IN THE HOUSE

APPEAR TO HAVE BLOCKED THE

MEASURE, SAYING IT COULD

DRIVE AWAY BUSINESS.

WE'VE SEEN FIRSTHAND

WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN NORTH

CAROLINA.

THEY REPEALED THE BILL

BECAUSE IT WAS SUCH A BAD

IDEA.

WHY WOULD WE WANT TO GO

DOWN THAT ROAD?

Reporter: NOT

EVERYONE IS CONVINCED.

WELCOME TO THE TEXAS

VALUES REPORT.

THIS IS JONATHAN STEINS.

GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.

THIS ISSUE IS NO QUESTION

A NATIONAL ISSUE.

Reporter: JONATHAN

STEINS OF "TEXAS VALUES,"

HAS TAKEN TO THE AIRWAVES

TO RALLY SUPPORT AMONG

LAWMAKERS AND THE PUBLIC.

TEXAS HAS BEEN THE BEST

STATE FOR BUSINESS FOR 13

STRAIGHT YEARS.

WE'RE GOING TO BE JUST

FINE.

Reporter: BACKERS OF

THE SO-CALLED "BATHROOM

BILL" ARE HOPEFUL THAT IF

LAWMAKERS ARE ABLE TO

APPROVE OF THE PRIVACY

ACT, THAT THEIR EFFORTS

WILL SERVE AS A MODEL FOR

OTHER STATES TO FOLLOW.

IF TEXAS IS ABLE TO

HOLD THE LINE ON THIS

ISSUE AND SHOW PEOPLE

ACROSS THE COUNTRY THAT

WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR

COMMON-SENSE VALUES, WHEN

YOU PROTECT PRIVACY,

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THE

ECONOMY DO WELL.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE IT

MAKES SENSE.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

PEOPLE THAT RUN FOR

ELECTIVE OFFICE REALIZE

THAT IS ONE WAY YOU

CONTINUE TO STAY IN

OFFICE.

Reporter: WHILE THE

LGBT SAY THEY FIGHT FOR

EQUALITY AND JUSTICE, FOR

SENATOR CULKURSE, THIS IS

ABOUT SAFETY.

WE DON'T WANT TO

DISCRIMINATE.

WE'RE ALL GOD'S PEOPLE.

BUT THAT SHOULD NOT

INFRINGE ON PEOPLE WHO

CHOOSE TO IDENTIFY WITH

THE SEX THAT GOD GAVE

THEM.

Reporter: THE

SUPPORTERS OF THE TEXAS

PRIVACY ACT VOW THE FIGHT

IS FAR FROM OVER.

JOHN JESSUP, REPORTING

FROM THE STATE CAPITAL IN

AUSTIN, TEXAS.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

IT IS AND A CONFUSION OF

PROPHECY AND ARCHEOLOGY.

STAY WITH US FOR THIS

AMAZING UNCOVERING OF THE

CITY OF DAVID.

Efrem: WHEN PEOPLE

VISIT JERUSALEM'S OLD

CITY, THEY MAY BELIEVE IT

IS THE SAME PLACE KING

DAVID SET UP AS HIS

CAPITAL SOME 3,000 YEARS

AGO.

THAT'S NOT EXACTLY THE

CASE, AS CHRIS MITCHELL

SHOWS US.

ARCHEOLOGISTS ARE

UNCOVERING THE ORIGINAL

CITY AND TELLING AN

AMAZING STORY.

THE OLD CITY OF

DAVID...

Chris: WE'RE LOOKING

AT THE CITY OF DAVID FROM

HERE.

THIS IS THE CITY OF

DAVID.

Chris: ANARIMA HAMAN

SERVES AS THE OUTREACH

COORDINATOR FOR THE CITY

OF DAVID.

WELCOME TO THE CITY OF

DAVID.

UP TO 150 YEARS AGO,

EVERYBODY THOUGHT THAT THE

ANCIENT BIBLICAL CITY LIES

WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE

SOLD CITY RIGHOLD CITY, RIGHT BEHIND

THERE.

Chris: SHE THEN

HELPED ANSWER THE QUESTION

BY EXPLAINING HOW THE CITY

OF DAVID LAY HIDDEN FOR

NEARLY 2,000 YEARS, UNTIL

A BRITISH ARCHEOLOGIST

BEGAN A DISCOVERY THAT

CONTINUES TO THIS DAY.

OF COURSE, WE'RE

STANDING AT A MAGICAL

PLACE RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

CHARLES WARREN CAME

THROUGH THE FISHERY THAT

HE FOUND.

AND HE SAW SOMETHING.

AND WHEN HE SAW THIS, HE

KNEW HE REDISCOVERED THE

ANCIENT BIBLICAL

JERUSALEM.

Chris: WAS THIS THE

BEGINNING, SORT OF, OF THE

UNVEILING OF THE CITY OF

DAVID IN THE MODERN TIME?

EXACTLY.

BECAUSE NOW WE SPAN OVER A

2,000 YEAR PERIOD, WHERE

NOBODY KNEW WHERE THE

ANCIENT CITY WAS.

MOST PEOPLE THOUGHT WHEN

THEY CAME, WHAT THEY SAW

IN THE OLD CITY, THAT WAS

ANCIENT BIBLICAL JERUSALEM

CITY.

IT WAS ONLY WHEN THEY

FOUND THIS THEY

DISCOVERED, WAIT A MINUTE,

THE ANCIENT JERUSALEM LIES

OUTSIDE OF WHAT WE CALL

TODAY THE OLD CITY.

Chris: THE DISCOVERY

OF THIS TUNNEL SYSTEM

VISUALLY TELLS HOW KING

DAVID CAPTURED THE CITY

AND BRINGS THE BIBLE TO

LIFE.

WHEN WE SAW THIS, WE

FINALLY SAW EXACTLY HOW

THE PICTURE CAME TOGETHER.

AND MANY TIMES WHEN WE DO

EXCAVATIONS, WE DON'T KNOW

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT.

WE HAVE TO GO TO THE BIBLE

AND IT STARTS EXPLAINING

IT.

SO IT IS THE BIBLE AND THE

EXCAVATIONS COMING

TOGETHER, GIVING US THE

FULL PICTURE OF ANCIENT

JERUSALEM.

Chris: FURTHER DOWN

THEY FOUND WHERE MEN

BECAME KINGS.

MOST OF THE KINGS OF

ISRAEL WERE A ANOINTED WHERE

WE ARE STANDING RIGHT NOW.

AND ISAIAH SAYS HE WILL

DRAW FORTH WATER WITH JOY

FROM THE SPRINGS OF

SALVATION.

Chris: IN FACT, THE

CITY OF DAVID ECHOES WITH

THE PEOPLE OF THE BIBLE.

ABRAHAM, B AND THEN WE

GET TO DAVID, TO SOLOMON,

WE GET TO ISAIAH, WHEN HE

WAS GIVING THESE

PROPHECIES ON THESE VERY

WALLS HERE.

JEREMIAH, WHEN HE HAD TO

SPEAK ABOUT THE

DESTRUCTION THAT WAS

LOOMING OVER JERUSALEM --

ALL OF THOSE THINGS

HAPPENING EXACTLY WHERE

WE'RE STANDING RIGHT NOW.

Chris: MORE THAN 10

YEARS AGO, ARCHEOLOGISTS

UNCOVERED ANOTHER BIBLICAL

SITE, THE POOL OF SILOHAM.

IT IS THE PLACE WHERE

JESUS HEALED THE BLIND MAN

AND WHERE THE JEWISH

PEOPLE WOULD GATHER FOR

THE FEAST OF THE LORD.

THREE TIMES A YEAR, ALL

OF THE MEN HAD TO COME TO

THIS POOL, AND FROM THERE

GET READY TO GO TO TEMPLE

MOUNT.

AND THIS IS THE WALK, THE

FINAL WALK THAT ALL OF THE

PILGRIMS DO WHEN THEY COME

TO JERUSALEM.

Chris: SHE SEES THIS

AS A MERGER BETWEEN

ARCHEOLOGIST AND PROPHECY.

SOMETHING AMAZING IS

HAPPENING.

BECAUSE WE'RE NOW SCAF

EXCAVATING THIS ROAD, AND

AGAIN PROPHECY IS BEING

FULFILLED.

IT SAYS IN ISAIAH, BUILD

UP THE ROAD, THE HIGHWAY,

AND REMOVE THE STONES FOR

MY PEOPLE'S RETURN.

Chris: ONE ONGOING

EXCAVATION IS THIS TUNNEL

LOADING FROM THE POOL OF

SILOHAM TO THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

SHE SAYS IT REVEALS THE

PAST AND OPENS THE DOOR TO

THE FUTURE.

ONE OF THE CITY OF DAVID'S

MOST AMBITIOUS PROJECTS IS

THIS EXCAVATION, WHERE THE

ENTIRE HISTORY OF

JERUSALEM IS BEING

REVEALED AS IF THE ROCKS

ARE CRYING OUT.

YOU CAN SEE EXACTLY HOW

SHE SLOWLY DISAPPEARED

FROM CIVILIZATION.

BECAUSE ONE CITY WAS BUILT

UPON THE OTHER.

YOU CAN SEE HOW THE CITY

COULD HAVE LOST HOPE,

THINKING, WHO IS EVER

GOING TO DISCOVER HE

AGAIN.

UNTIL GOD SAYS, IN THE

TUNNEL FAVOR, NOTHING CAN

STOP IT.

JEWISHISM IS SLOWLY BEING

UNFOLD.

SHE IS STARTING TO SHARE

WHAT SHE LOOKED LIKE TO US

AGAIN.

SO YOU CAN SEE HOW

PROPHECY IS GOING UP AS WE

GO.

SHAKE OFF YOUR DUST.

ARISE.

TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE,

JERUSALEM.

YOU CAN SEE THE DUST

LITERALLY FLYING ABOUT,

HOW SHE IS SHAKING OFF HER

DUST.

Chris: SHE CONSIDERS

HER ROLE IN THE CITY OF

DAVID A PRIVILEGE.

I CALL MYSELF THE

LUCKIEST GIRL IN THE

WORLD.

BECAUSE I HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE WHAT

WE SEE HERE AND TELL THE

PEOPLE ABOUT THE CITY OF

DAVID, ABOUT THE ANCIENT

JERUSALEM.

AND EVERY PERSON THAT IS

PASSIONATE ABOUT JERUSALEM

AND SERIOUS ABOUT BIBLICAL

PROPHECY NEEDS TO KNOW

THIS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, THE

CITY OF DAVID, JERUSALEM.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

MORE ARCHEOLOGICAL FINDS

IN ISRAEL.

THIS TIME A 2,000-YEAR-OLD

WORKSHOP IS DISCOVERED IN

THE BIBLICAL TOWN OF

CANAA.

FIND OUT WHY ARCHEOLOGISTS

ARE CALLING THIS STONE OF

VESSELS A TREASURE.

Efrem: THE DAUGHTER

OF THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO

OF THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO

ISRAEL IS EXPECTED TO LAND

IN TEL AVIV DAY FOR

ALIYAH.

DAVID FRIEDMAN'S DAU DAUGHTER

IS ONE OF 233 PEOPLE

IMMIGRATING FROM THE U.S.

AND MAKING ISRAEL THEIR

PERMANENT HOME.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS HIS

DAUGHTER IS FULFILLING HER

LIFE'S DREAM.

I'M HERE TO CELEBRATE

MY DAUGHTER REALIZING HER

DREAMS.

MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER AT

ALIYAH TODAY.

WE LOVE HER VERY MUCH.

Efrem: SHE ARRIVED ON

A CHARTER FLIGHT.

THE ORGANIZATION HAS

HELPED MORE THAN 50,000

AMERICAN JEWS IMMIGRATE TO

ISRAEL IN THE LAST 50

YEARS.

> ARCHEOLOGISTS

EXCAVATING IN GALILEE SAY

THEY HAVE FOUND A REAR

WORKSHOP FROM THE TIME OF

JESUS.

AND THEY SAY IT SHEDS SOME

LIGHT ON JEWISH PRACTICES

AT THAT TIME.

JULIE STAAL HAS MORE ON

THAT STORY.

Julie: BUILDING IN

ISRAEL OFTEN TURNS UP

ANCIENT SURPRISES, LIKE

THIS 2,000-YEAR-OLD

WORKSHOP, DURING THE

CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW

SPORTSCENTER IN THE AREA

OF BIBLICAL CANAA IN THE

GALILEE.

WE HAVE AN ARTIFICIALLY

HUMAN CAVE, WHICH WAS HUNE

OUT BY ANCIENT QUAR QUARIORS

2,000 YEARS AGO.

Julie: THIS

ARCHEOLOGIST IS HEADING

THE EXCAVATION.

WE HAVE A HUGE AMOUNT

OF PRODUCTION WASTE, WHICH

INCLUDES BOTH CORES, WHICH

WERE TAKEN OUT FROM THE

INSIDE OF MUGS AND BOWLS,

WHICH WERE PRODUCED HERE,

VESSELS THAT HAD BROKEN

DURING THE PRODUCTION

PROCESS.

Julie: ARCHEOLOGISTS

UNCOVERED LITERALLY

THOUSANDS OF THESE CORES

AT THE SITE.

AND WHAT THE CRAFTSMEN

THREW AWAY 2,000 YEARS AGO

HAS BECOME A TREASURE

TODAY.

THIS IS AN EXCITING

FIND.

HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME WE

HAVE PRODUCTION SITES IN

GALILEE, WHICH WE'RE ABLE

TO EXCAVATE.

AND TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

THE OBSERVANCE OF RITUAL

PURITY 2,000 YEARS AGO.

Julie: THE NEW

TESTAMENT SPECIFICALLY

MENTIONS STONE VESSELS AND

PURIFICATION LAWS, WHEN

JESUS TURNS THE WATER INTO

WINE AT THE WEDDING IN

CANAA.

THERE WERE SET THERE SIX

WATER POTS OF STONE,

ACCORDING TO THE MANNER OF

THE PURIFICATION OF JEWS.

STONE IS A MATERIAL

THAT DOESN'T BECOME

IMPURE, AS OPPOSED TO

POTTERY VESSELS.

IF THEY CAME IN CONTACT

WITH SOMETHING IMPURE,

THEN THE POTTERY VESSEL

WOULD BECOME IMPURE AND IT

WOULD HAVE TO BE BROKEN.

Julie: THIS

ARCHEOLOGIST, ALEXANDER,

SAYS STONE IS CONSIDERED

PURE ALL OF THE TIME.

IF THE POPULATION WAS

CONCERNED WITH KEEPING THE

PURITY LAWS, THEY WOULD

MAKE SURE THEY HAD SOME OF

THESE VESSELS IN THE

HOUSES.

Julie: ARCHEOLOGISTS

HAVEN'T FOUND ANY LARGE

STONE VESSELS LIKE THE

WATER JUGS AT CANEA AT THE CANAA, BUT

THEY HOPE TO BE ALLOWED TO

EXCAVATE DESPITE THE

BUILDING OF THE

SPORTSCENTER.

JULIE STAAL, CBN NEWS,

ISRAEL.

Efrem: STAY WITH US.

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE OF

CBN "NEWSWATCH" STRAIGHT

Efrem: SOME PEOPLE

SEE MONDAY'S COMING

ECLIPSE AS JUST AS

SPECTACULAR AS THE

HEAVENS.

BUT THOSE WHO ARE

PROPHECY-MINDED ARE ASKING

IF THERE IS ANYTHING ABOUT

IT POINTING TO FUTURE

EVENTS FOR MANKIND.

OUR PAUL STRAND TALKED

WITH ONE SUCH PERSON WHO

THINKS PROBABLY SO.

Reporter: THERE IS A

NEW SERVICE CALLED

"UNSEALED.ORG" WHICH IS

LOOKING FOR THE SOLAR

ECLIPSE TO SEE IF IT IS

REALLY A SIGN FROM THE

HEAVEN.

THE FIRST MAJOR TOWN IT

IS GOING TO CROSS IS

SALEM, OREGON.

IF YOU RECALL, THERE WAS A

PRIEST CALLED NOKIFADEC,

WAS FROM SALEM.

Reporter:

AUGUST 21st, THE SUN

GOES DARK THE SAME MOMENT

IT GOES DARK OVER

JERUSALEM.

JUST THE FACT THAT THE

FIRST MAJOR TOWN IT IS

GOING TO CROSS IS CALLED

SALEM SHOULD AT LEAST GET

OUR ATTENTION THAT GOD IS

TRYING TO SAY SOMETHING

ABOUT JERUSALEM AND ISRAEL

AND WHAT'S COMING.

Reporter: THE BABY

JESUS' ARRIVAL WAS

HERALDED BY A SIGN OF THE

HEAVENS.

THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM OR

WISE MEN OR BAJI FOLLOWED.

THE NAMES OF THE CITIES

THAT THE ECLIPSE CROSSES

ALMOST TELL US TO PAY

ATTENTION BECAUSE ONE OF

THE NEXT TOWNS IT CROSSES

IS CALLED WEISSER, IDAHO.

AND WEISSER IS GERMAN FOR

WISEMAN.

Reporter: SEVEN YEARS

LATER, THE SAME LENGTH AS

THE PROPHECY TRIBULATION,

ANOTHER SOLAR ECLIPSE GOES

ACROSS AND THE PATHS OF

THE TWO ECLIPSES FORM A

CROSS.

THE FACT THAT THERE

WOULD BE TWO TOTAL SOLAR

ECLIPSES IN THE MOST

POWERFUL AND MOST

PROSPEROUS GENTILE NATION

ON EARTH IS VERY

SIGNIFICANT.

AND IT IS IN SOUTHERN

ILLINOIS, AND IN THAT AREA

IT IS CALLED LITTLE EGYPT.

AND THE PRECISE TOWN WHERE

THE PATHS MEET IS CALLED

THE CONDA.

THE OLD MODEL FOR THAT

TOWN WAS THE STAR OF

EGYPT.

IT IS INTERESTING.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE GOD IS

SAYING, EGYPT, EGYPT,

EGYPT.

WHAT COULD THAT MEAN?

EGYPT WAS HIT WITH

HORRIBLE PLAGUES BUT COULD

FIND GOD AND MOSES.

IF YOU GO BACK TO THE

BOOK OF EXODUS AND LOOK AT

THE 10 PLAGUES, SEVEN OF

THE PLAGUES ARE REPEATED

IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

WE'RE NOT SAYING THAT THE

RAPTURE OR THE SECOND

COMING IS GOING TO HAPPEN

AT SUCH AND SUCH A DATE.

WE'RE JUST SAYING THAT THE

LORD, MULTIPLE TIMES,

COMMANDED HIS PEOPLE TO

WATCH.

AND HE GAVE SIGNS FOR A

REASON.

IF HE DIDN'T WANT US TO

PAY ATTENTION, HE WOULDN'T

HAVE GIVEN SIGNS.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

DOESN'T NECESSARILY AGREE

WITH ALL OF THE FINDINGS,

BUT AT LEAST FIND THOSE

PRESENTED HERE INTERESTING

TO PONDER.

Efrem: TIME NOW FOR

YOUR TUESDAY TWEETABLE.

I HOPE YOU WILL TAKE THE

TIME TO POST, TAG, TWEET

AND SHARE THIS MESSAGE

WITH OTHERS.

CONSIDER THIS: TRIALS

LEAVE SCARS, BUT THE

REMAINING SCARS TELLS THE

STORY OF NOT ONLY YOUR

SURVIVAL, BUT YOUR

TRIUMPH.

WEAR THOSE SCARS AS A

PERSONAL BADGE OF HONOR.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN BENT,

BUT YOU DID NOT BREAK.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN CRUSHED,

BUT YOU DID NOT CRUMBLE.

WITH THAT, MAKE THIS A

TERRIFIC TUESDAY.
