Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP OUTLINING

HIS REVISED VISION FOR THE

U.S. WAR IN AFGHANISTAN,

AS CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIC

GONZALES SHOWS US, HE HAS

VOWED TO END THE STRATEGY

OF NATION BUILDING, AND

REPLACE IT WITH A POLICY

TO DESTROY THE TERRORIST

THREAT.

Reporter: IN A PRIME

TIME ADDRESS TO THE

NATION, DONALD TRUMP

PLACED HIS OWN STAMP ON

THE 17-YEAR-OLD WAR ON

AFGHANISTAN.

HE PROMISED TO STAY IN THE

FIGHT, BUT ALSO TO SEND

MORE TROOPS IN THE AREA

AND WIN, WIN BY KILLING

TERRORISTS.

President Trump: THE

CONSEQUENCES OF A RAPID

EXIT ARE BOTH PREDICTABLE

AND UNACCEPTABLE.

9/11, THE WORST TERRORIST

ATTACK IN OUR HISTORY, WAS

PLANNED AND DIRECTED FROM

AFGHANISTAN BECAUSE THAT

COUNTRY WAS RULED BY A

GOVERNMENT THAT GAVE

COMFORT AND SHELTER TO

TERRORISTS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT DID NOT SAY HOW

MANY MORE AMERICANS WOULD

BE SENT, BUT THE

PENTAGON'S PROPOSAL

ORIGINALLY UNVEILED IN MAY

WOULD ADD 3,000 TO 4,000

TROOPS, AND INCREASE THE

AMOUNT OF FOREIGN AID

BEING SENT TO THE NATION.

AND HE SAID THEY ARE SEE WILL SEE

HOW WELL THINGS ARE GOING

ON THE GROUND.

President Trump:

CONDITIONS ON THE GROUND,

NOT ARBITRARY TIMETABLES,

WILL GUIDE OUR STRATEGY

FROM NOW ON.

Reporter: AFGHAN

FORCES SEA THE SAY THEY NEED MORE

HELP TO FIGHT THE TALIBAN.

President Trump:

WORKING ALONGSIDE OUR

ALLIES, WE WILL BREAK

THEIR WILL, DRY UP THEIR

EQUIPMENT, KEEP THEM FROM

CROSSING OUR BORDERS, AND,

YES, WE WILL DEFEAT THEM

AND WE WILL DEFEAT THEM

HANDILEY.

Reporter: AND

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED ON

INDIAN AND PAKISTAN TO

STEP UP, SAYING PAKISTAN

NEEDS TO STOP GIVING SAVE

HAVENS TO TERRORISTS.

President Trump: IN

AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN,

AMERICA'S INTERESTS ARE

CLEAR: WE MUST STOP THE

RESURGENCE OF SAFE HAVENS

THAT ENABLE TERRORISTS WHO

THREATEN AMERICA.

Reporter: THE ONE

THING THE PRESIDENT SAID

HE WILL NOT DO IS GIVE A

TIME TABLE ON WHEN

AMERICAN TROOPS IN

AFGHANISTAN CAN COME HOME.

HE SAYS OUR ENEMIES MAY

NEVER KNOW OUR PLANS AND

THINK THEY CAN WAIT US

OUT.

Efrem: THE NAVY'S TOP

BRASS IS ORDERING A

COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF

TRAINING IN ITS FLEET

AFTER TWO COLLISIONS IN A

FEW MONTHS.

THE U.S.S. JOHN McCAIN

COLLIDED IN SINGAPORE ON

MONDAY.

ADMIRAL JOHN RICHARDSON

ORDERED THE SEVENTH FLEET

TO CONDUCT A ONE-DAY

STANDDOWN TO CONDUCT

TRAINING.

SHIPS WILL CARRY OUT

REVIEWS ON A ROTATIONAL

BASIS AND THE WHOLE STUDY

SHOULD BE COMPLETED IN A

MONTH.

> OFFICERS SHOT 22 ABU

IN A SUBURB WEST OF

BARCELONA ON MONDAY.

HE WAS THE TARGET OF AN

INTERNATIONAL MANHUNT

AFTER RAMMING A VAN INTO A

CROWD, KILLING 13 PEOPLE

AND HURTING 120 OTHERS.

A DAY LATER, A STRING OF

VEHICLE ATTACKS HAPPENED

IN THE SPANISH TOWN OF

CATALONIA AND CAMBRILS.

AUTHORITIES CONFIRMED THAT

AN AUDI USED IN ONE OF

THOSE ATTACKS WERE SEEN A

WEEK BEFORE IN PARIS.

> MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

WITNESSED THE SUN

DISAPPEAR BEHIND THE MOON

IN A TOTAL ECLIPSE.

CAITLIN BURKE JOINED

CROWDS IN HAMPTON ROADS,

AND SHE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE COUNTRY

PAUSED ON MONDAY AND

LOOKED UP TO THE HEAVENS,

WITNESSING THE FIRST TOTAL

ECLIPSE TO SWEEP FROM

COAST TO COAST IN NEARLY

100 YEARS.

AND A PART OF THE EARTH

WILL ACTUALLY SEE THE

MOON'S SHADOW CAST ACROSS

IT.

Reporter: LINCOLN

CITY, OREGON WAS THE FIRST

STOP FOR THE TOTALITY,

TURNING DAY INTO NIGHT.

TOTALITY SPREAD ACROSS THE

U.S. AT AN AVERAGE OF

1800 MILES AN HOUR.

THE TIMING OF THE EVENT IN

EACH CITY PREDICTED TO

WITHIN FRACTIONS OF A

SECOND.

I HAD GOOSE BUMPS,

LITERALLY, BECAUSE I HAD

NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE

IT.

Reporter: IN

CARBONDALE, ILLINOIS,

CLOUDS ALMOST RUINED THE

SHOW, BUT IT PEEKED

THROUGH IN THE FINAL FEW

SECONDS.

THERE IT IS!

NO WORDS.

IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Reporter: HERE IN

HAMPTON ROADS, THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE SHOWED UP AT OLD

DEMINION UNIVERSITY.

THE PLANETARIUM BROUGHT

THEIR TELESCOPES.

THIS IS A GREAT PART OF

HISTORY RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO

HAPPEN AGAIN FOR A-LONG A LONG

TIME.

I WANTED TO BE HERE TO

WITNESS THIS FIRSTHAND.

PRETTY COOL.

Reporter: NOT

EVERYONE VIEWED THE

ECLIPSE USING GLASSES.

THIS IS A PIN HOLD UP

HERE, AND IT'S AN OLD

CAMERA EFFECT.

IT HITS THE PIN HOLE, AND

IT GOES THROUGH HERE, AND

WHAT YOU SEE IS THE

OUTLINE OF THE SUN, AND

YOU CAN SEE IT BEING

ECLIPSED.

SO IT IS A SAFE WAY TO

LOOK AT THE ECLIPSE, AND

ESSENTIALLY THIS IS THE

REVERSE.

IT IS THE ACTUAL

PHOTOGRAPHIC REVERSE.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

WAS ALSO LIVE AT THE AIR

AND SPACE MUSEUM IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., AS

VISITORS VIEWED THE

ECLIPSE THROUGH A

TELESCOPE SUN GUN.

THIS IS A

ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME.

I'MED GLAI'M GLAD WE GOT THESE

GLASSES.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP VIEWED THE ECLIPSE

FROM WASHINGTON, AND NASA

REPORTED 4.4 MILLION

PEOPLE WERE WATCHING ITS

TV COVERAGE MIDWAY THROUGH

THE ECLIPSE, THE BIGGEST

LIVE-STREAM EVENT IN THE

SPACE AGENCY'S HISTORY.

IF YOU MISSED IT, YOU CAN

STILL CATCH THE NEXT ONE.

THE NEXT TOTAL ECLIPSE FOR

NORTH AMERICA IS ONLY

SEVEN YEARS AWAY, IN 2024.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A DOZENS OF

PLAYERS FOR THE CLEVELAND

BROWNS PRAYED DURING THE

NATIONAL ANTHEM BEFORE THE

GAME.

THEY JOINED HANDS AND GOT

DOWN ON ONE KNEE TO PRAY

FOR THOSE WHO SUFFERED

FROM RACIAL AND SOCIAL

INJUSTICE.

THEY INTENDED NO

DISRESPECT FOR ANYONE, BUT

IT WAS TIME FOR SPEAK OUT,

THEY SAID.

TIGHT END SETH DEVEIL, WHO

IS WHITE, ALSO JOINED, AS

WELL AS HIS WIFE.

HIS WIFE IS

AFRICAN-AMERICAN, AND HE

SAID HE WANTS TO RAISE HIS

CHILDREN IN A BETTER

ENVIRONMENT THAN WE HAVE

TODAY.

THE PLAYERS SAID THEY

SPOKE WITH THEIR COACH

BEFORE THE PRAYER, AND HE

SUPPORTED THEIR DECISION.

> STILL TO COME HERE ON

CBN "NEWSWATCH," THE SOLAR

ECLIPSE STILL HAS PEOPLE

WONDERING IF IT IS A SIGN

FROM GOD.

IF SO, IT WOULDN'T BE THE

FIRST TIME IT HAS

HAPPENED.

WE'VE GOT THE STORY NEXT.

WE'VE GOT THE STORY NEXT.

Efrem: THE BOOK OF

JOSHUA TELLS US THE STORY

OF THE DAY WHEN THE SUN

STOOD STILL.

AND IT IS NOT THE ONLY

TIME WHEN SIGNS IN THE

HEAVENS PLAYED A BIG ROLE

IN THE BIBLE.

SO WHAT ABOUT MONDAY'S

SOLAR ECLIPSE?

WAS THERE A DEEPER MEANING

BEHIND IT?

CHRIS MITCHELL TAKES A

CLOSER LOOK.

Reporter: ONE OF 10

PLAGUES, THREE DAYS OF

DARKNESS OVER EGYPT BEFORE

THE EXIT DUS.

>EXODUS.

PEOPLE DESCRIBE IT AS A

DARKNESS SO THICK THAT

EYPTIANS COULDN'T MOVE IN

IT.

THE SUN GOD WAS ONE OF

THE MAJOR GODS -- THE

MAJOR GOD, I THINK -- AND

MY GOD COVERING THEIR GOD.

HE WAS SAYING, I'M BIGGER

THAN YOUR GOD.

Reporter: MANY

BELIEVE THIS IS THE PLACE

WHERE JOSHUA FOUGHT THE

BATTLE WITH THE FIVE KINGS

OF THE EMIRATES, AND HE

SAID, SUN, STAND STILL,

AND MOON OVER THE SUN.

WHATEVER THE DARKNESS

WAS, IT WASN'T AN ECLIPSE,

AND WE HAVE NO EXPLANATION

OF WHAT IT WAS, OR EVEN

WHAT IT MEANT.

BUT IT CERTAINLY WOULD

HAVE INVOKED IN THE PEOPLE

WHO WERE THERE A PROFOUND

SENSE OF SOMETHING

MONUMENTAL HAPPENING.

Chris: GOD DEFINITELY

MADE POINTS WITH SIGNS IN

THE SKY THROUGHOUT THE

BIBLE.

BUT IS HE STILL DOING THE

SAME THING TODAY?

IN ROMANS 1, IT TELLS

US THAT GOD HAS ORDERED

THE WORLD IN SUCH A WAY

THAT THE HEARTS OF MAN CAN

KNOW THAT GOD EXISTS JUST

BY THE WAY NATURE WORKS.

SO DOES HE USE NATURE TO

TALK TO HIS PEOPLE?

HE DOES.

IT IS A FUNDAMENTAL

BELIEF IN JUDAISM THAT

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN

A WORLD IS FOR A MEANING,

AND THERE IS A MESSAGE

HIDDEN IN THERE SOMEWHERE,

EVEN IN ASTRONOMICAL

PHENOMENON.

INTERPRETING THE MESSAGE

IS A LITTLE MORE

PROBLEMATIC.

Chris: STEVE RIDGE

SAYS GOD ALREADY GAVE HIS

BIGGEST SIGN.

THE BIGGEST WAY GOD

SPEAKS IS THROUGH HIS SON.

SO INFORMER TIMES, GOD

SPOKE IN MANY AND VARIOUS

WAYS THROUGH THE PROPHETS.

BUT IN THESE LAST DAYS, HE

HAS SPOKEN THROUGH HIS

SON.

FOR US, JESUS IS THE

REVELATION.

JESUS IS THE WORD MADE

FLESH.

JESUS IS THE ULTIMATE

SIGN.

AND HIS DEATH AND HIS

RESURRECTION THE ULTIMATE

SIGN.

WE SHOULD BE LOOKING TO

HIM.

Chris: SPIRO SAYS

JUDAISM FOCUSES ON HOW...

THE RABBIS TALK ABOUT

THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH

AS A WOMAN GIVING BIRTH

PAINS.

JUST AS A WOMAN GETS

CONTRACTIONS AND THEY GET

CLOSER AND CLOSER AS YOU

APPROACH THE BIRTH, SO

WILL THE EVENTS ON THE

EARTH.

AND THEY HAPPEN MUCH MORE

RAPIDLY.

WE SEE THAT THINGS ARE

SPEEDING UP VERY MORE

DRAMATICALLY IN THE WORLD.

Chris: ONE OFTEN

QUOTED SCRIPTURE ABOVE THE

SKY COMES FROM THE BOOK OF

JOEL.

"THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED

INTO DARKNESS, AND THE

MOON WHO BLOOD BEFORE THE

GREAT AND AWESOME DAY OF

THE LORD."

WE GET THIS PICTURE

FROM GOD'S WORD THAT HE

WILL USE THOSE KINDS OF

SIGNS IN THE SKIES TO

SPEAK TO HIS PEOPLE, TO

SPEAK TO THE EARTH.

AND HOW DO WE KNOW WHICH

ONE IS WHICH?

BECAUSE I THINK SOMETIMES

WE WANT TO ATTACH GOD TO

EVERY SINGLE NATURAL EVENT

THAT TAKES PLACE.

AND I THINK MOST OF THE

TIME GOD JUST WANTS TO

SHOW HE IS IN NATURE AND

NOT THAT HE IS ACTUALLY

COMMUNICATING, WATCH OUT,

SOMETHING IS GETTING READY

TO HAPPEN.

IT COULD BE INTERPRETED

AS ECLIPSES BY THE WAY.

MOON TURNING TO BLOOD IS

CALLED THE BLOOD MOON,

WHICH HAPPENS IN A LUNAR

ECLIPSE.

WHEN YOU HAVE A SOLAR

ECLIPSE, THE SUN

DISAPPEARS AND TURNS INTO

BLACKNESS.

SIGNS WE SEE AT THE END OF

DAYS -- WHETHER THAT IS

WHAT IT IS MEANT TO BE

INTERPRETED AS REMAINS A

BIG QUESTION.

Chris: ACCORDING TO

JEWISH TEACHING, THE

MESSIAH MUST COME BEFORE

THE YEAR 2,000 ON THE

JEWISH CALENDAR.

WE'RE CURRENTLY AT 5777.

TIME IS DEFINITELY

RUNNING OUT.

THE REBIRTH OF THE STATE

OF ISRAEL, THE

REUNIFICATION OF

JERUSALEM, AND WE JUST

CELEBRATED THE 50th

ANNIVERSARY OF THAT, THAT

IS PROPHECY COMING TRUE

BEFORE OUR EYES.

WHAT YOU SEE GOING ON IN

UNESCO AND THE UNITED

NATIONS IS CLEARLY A SIGN.

Chris: SO OTHER THAN

LOOKING THROUGH PROTECTIVE

GLASSES, HOW DO THESE

LEADERS RECOMMEND WE VIEW

THE ECLIPSE?

WE'RE ONLY A FEW

HEADLINES AWAY FROM DIRECT

CONVERGENCE OF THE

BIBLICAL END SCENARIO WITH

THE NEWS TODAY.

THAT, TO ME, IS FAR MORE

IMPACTFUL AND SERIOUS IN

TERMS OF WAKING PEOPLE UP

IN THEIR EXPECTATION OF

THE REDEM SHAN THA REDEMPTION THAN THE

CELESTIAL SIGNS HAPPENING.

WE NEED TO ASK GOD, IS

THIS YOU?

ARE YOU SPEAKING TO THE

PEOPLE?

ARE YOU SPEAKING TO THE

EARTH?

I BELIEVE HE'LL TELL MORE

THAN JUST ONE PERSON THIS

IS HIM SPEAKING TO THE

WHOLE EARTH.

WE NEED TO BE CAUTIOUS,

FIX OUR EYES ON JESUS, AND

KEEP PROCLAIMING THE

MYSTERY AND THE PROFOUND

VICTORY OF THE LIFE,

DEATH, AND RESURRECTION OF

JESUS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, THE IALON

VALLEY, WHERE THE SUN AND

MOON STOOD STILL.

Efrem: CBS IS GEARING

UP FOR A NEW STAR TREK.

WE'LL INTRODUCE YOU TO THE

FAN WHO CREATED A TRIBUTE

Efrem: VIC BANANA IS

AN ACTOR AND MUSICIAN WHO

HAS ALSO MADE A NAME FOR

HIMSELF AS A VOICE IN THE

WORLD OF ANIMATION.

HE IS THE MAN BEHIND "STARSTAR

TREK CONTINUES."

AND HE IS USING HIS VOICE

TO STAND UP FOR A GROUP

WHO IS OFTEN DUMPED ON AND

TOSSED ASIDE.

TAKE A LOOK.

IT HAS BEEN REPORTED

NEAR THE UNINHABITED

CRESCENT.

IT IS A GRAVITATIONAL WAVE

OF ENGINEERS.

ARE WE THERE YET?

LET'S BEGIN WITH STAR

TREK, FIRST OF ALL.

THE MISSION AND WHY YOU

CHOSE TO DO THAT?

I CREATED "STAR TREK

CONTINUES" ABOUT FOUR AND

A HALF YEARS AGO AS A LOVE

LETTER TO STAR TREK.

AS A WAY TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR THE WAY YOU INSPIRED

ME, AND I KNOW I SPEAK AND

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

VICARIOUSLY ARE LIVING

THROUGH WHAT WE'RE DOING.

Efrem: "STAR TREK

CONTINUES" IS A FAN

PRODUCED WEB SERIES.

IT PICKS UP WHERE THE

ORIGINAL SERIES LEFT OFF.

VIC BANANA IS THE

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND

PLAYS CAPTAIN KIRK.

IT IS A PURE LABOR OF

LOVE.

THERE IS NO MONEY BEING

MADE.

IT IS PURELY OUT OF

PASSION AND LOVE FOR THIS

SHOW THAT MEANT SO MUCH TO

SO MANY.

Efrem: SINCE THE

FIRST EPISODE IN 2015,

"STAR TREK CONTINUES" HAS

BECOME ONE OF THE MOST

AWARDED AND RECOGNIZED FAN

PRODUCTIONS IN EXISTENCE.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE

PEOPLE THAT RECREATE WITH

INCREDIBLY GREAT

PRODUCTION VALUES, UNSEEN

STAR TREK EPISODES?

Efrem: IT HAS TO BE A

GREAT HONOR BECAUSE THE

CREATOR'S SON HAS PRAISED

IT.

ROD RODENBERRY IS A BIG

SUPPORTER, AND HAS

ENTHUSIASTICALLY SUPPORTED

OUR SERIES.

HE HAS MANY, MANY TIMES

PUBLICLY SAID IF HIS DAD

WERE ALIVE TODAY, HE WOULD

CONSIDER THIS GOOD.

Efrem: HIS LOVE FOR

STAR TREK BEGAN WHEN HE

WAS JUST A CHILD.

I DISCOVERED THAT SHOW

AFTER SCHOOL AT THE EXACT

MOMENT WHEN MY PARENTS

DIVORCED AND MY DAD LEFT.

AND I HAVE, TO THIS DAY,

INTO RELATIONSHIP WITH MY

DAD.

I AM VERY GRATEFUL TO SAY

MY GRANDFATHER, WHO WAS A

PASTOR, VERY MUCH BECAME

LIKE A FATHER FIGURE.

BUT I THINK ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT PULLED ME

TOWARDS STAR TREK SO MUCH

WAS BECAUSE THE DAD WAS

GONE, AND HERE WAS THIS

ROLE MODEL, SOMEBODY THAT

WAS BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS

AND LOVED HIS FRIENDS.

STAR TREK INSPIRED ME

TO TRY THINGS CREATIVELY

THAT I HAD NEVER DONE

BEFORE.

AND NOW, FAST FORWARD 40

YEARS, MY COLLEGE DEGREE

IS IN FILM, I'VE BEEN

ACTING SINCE I WAS 10

BECAUSE OF STAR TREK.

Efrem: VIC IS ALSO A

MUSIC MAN WITH A PASSION

FOR CHRIST.

I GREW UP IN CHURCH.

ACCEPTED THE LORD WHEN I

WAS 13.

MY GRANDFATHER WAS A

PASTOR.

MOM PLAYED THE PIANO.

I MEAN ALL OF IT.

A TINY CHURCH IN WESTERN

PENNSYLVANIA.

WENT TO CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS.

AND LED WORSHIP, ACTUALLY.

Efrem: HE HAS

COMPOSED AND PRODUCED MORE

THAN 30 CHRISTIAN ALBUMS,

INCLUDING D.C. TOP'S VERY

RECORD.

VIC IS ALSO A VOICE-OVER

ACTOR.

*

ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO

SOMEBODY ENCOURAGED ME TO

AUDITION FOR A STUDIO IN

TOWN, IN HOUSTON, THAT

DUBBED JAPANESE ANIMATION.

AND THEY WERE LOOKING FOR

ACTORS.

AND I THOUGHT, WELL, THAT

SOUNDS LIKE FUN.

I WENT AND AUDITIONED AND

I GOT CAST IN THE SHOW,

AND THEN ANOTHER AND

ANOTHER AND ANOTHER.

AND AS I GREW INTO THAT

FIELD AND SPENT MORE TIME

IN IT AND STARTED

DEVELOPING EVEN A FAN BASE

AND A RECOGNITION, I

STARTED THINKING, YOU

KNOW, THIS COULD BE A

GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE

GOD'S LOVE, TO SHARE GOD'S

GIFT AND HIS GRACE WITH A

LOT OF PEOPLE THAT FEEL

VERY OSTRACIZED,

DISENFRANCHISED, IF YOU

WILL, PEOPLE THAT MY

PASTOR WOULD NEVER REACH.

Efrem: HE SPEAKS AS

EVENTS LIKE COMIC-CON AND

ISN'T AFRAID TO GO TOE TO

TOE WITH PEOPLE WHO

CONDEMN THE EVENT AND

THOSE ATTENDING IN THE

NAME OF FAITH.

GOD LOVES THEM AS THEY

ARE.

HE TOUCHES THEM AS THEY

ARE.

JESUS DIDN'T COMMAND

REPENTANCE?

JESUS LOVES PEOPLE.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IN ME

HAS A HARD TIME WALKING

PAST THEM.

IF SOMETHING INSIDE YOU

SAYS, GO TELL THEM THIS IS

NOT THE WAY TO REACH THESE

PEOPLE, BEATING THEM OVER

THE HEAD WITH SIGNS THAT

SAY GOD CONDEMNS YOU --

I'M VERY HUMBLED AND

GRATEFUL THAT I'VE

RECEIVED THOUSANDS OF

E-MAILS FROM ANIMATION

FANS WHO SAID, YOU KNOW

WHAT, I'VE NEVER REALLY

FELT LIKE THERE WAS A

PLACE FOR ME IN

CHRISTIANITY OR FAITH, BUT

SEEING THAT VIDEO AND

SEEING YOU TAKE A STAND

FOR US, HAS CAUSED ME TO

MAYBE EVEN RE-THINK AND

OPEN MYSELF TO THE

POSSIBILITY THAT GOD

REALLY DOES LOVE ME JUST

AS I AM AND WANTS A

RELATIONSHIP WITH ME JUST

AS I AM.

Efrem: JUST AS I AM,

I COME TO YOU.

AND, YES, INDEED, GOD DOES

WANT A RELATIONSHIP WITH

YOU JUST AS YOU ARE.

STAY WITH US, THERE IS

MUCH MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" STRAIGHT

AHEAD.

Efrem: TIME FOR YOUR

TUESDAY TWEETABLE.

THIS IS A MESSAGE MEANT TO

INSPIRE YOU AND IT IS ALSO

MEANT TO BE SHARED.

CONSIDER THIS: GOD CAUSES

ALL THINGS TO WORK

TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD,

BUT THAT GOOD IS FOR HIS

GLORY.

TAKE TIME TO THINK ON THAT

WORD AND BE SURE TO POST,

TAG, TWEET, AND SHARE IT

WITH OTHERS.

WITH THAT, I HOPE YOU HAVE

A TERRIFIC REST OF YOUR

TUESDAY.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT FOR

THIS EDITION OF CBN
