> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN

NEWSWATCH.

I'M MARK MARTIN.

THE HOUSE PASSED THE GOP TAX

BILL

TUESDAY AND ALTHOUGH

LAWMAKERS VOTED

ALONG PARTY LINES, THEY HIT A

BIT OF A

SNAG. WE HAVE THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

REPUBLICANS ARE CALLING

THIS THE

MOMENT DECADES IN THE MAKING

PASSING

THE LARGEST TAX OVERHAUL

SINCE THE

REGAN ADMINISTRATION.

THIS IS PROFOUND CHANGE

AND THIS IS

CHANGE THAT IS GOING TO PUT

OUR

COUNTRY ON THE RIGHT PATH.

THE BILL INITIALLY PASSED

BOTH

CHAMBERS BUT THE HOUSE MUST

VOTE AGAIN

BECAUSE THE PROVISION

VIOLATED THE

SENATE RULES.

DESPITE THE DELAYS, THE

REPUBLICANS

REMAIN CONFIDENT THAT THE

BILL WILL

REMAIN IN CONGRESS AND THE

BILL WILL

SOON BE SIGNED.

THIS WILL BRING NEW MONEY

HOME.

THIS SLASHES THE TAX

PERCENT FROM

25% TO 21% THAT WILL LEAD TO

ECONOMIC

AND JOB GROWTH AND TAX

DEDUCTION TO

$12,000 FOR SINGLE FILERS AND

$20,000

FOR MARRIED COUPLES.

IT WILL TAKE THE AVERAGE

PERSON TO

SAVE $20,000. SO MANY PEOPLE

STRUGGLE

PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK AND

UNABLE TO

SAVE FOR COLLEGE, THIS IS

GOING TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

THIS TAKES THE FILING

TAXES PROCESS

DOWN TO A POSTCARD.

INSTEAD OF PAYING WEEKS OR

PAYING

SOMEBODY A LOT TO PAY TAXES,

YOU WILL

DO IT IN MINUTES.

SOME CALL IT A TAX SCAM

AND JUST

FOR THE WEALTHY AND WILL

RAISE TAX FOR

THE MIDDLE-CLASS. HE SAYS

THIS IS JUST

MISINFORMATION AND TO READ

THE BILL.

READ THE BILL AT THE END

OF THE

DAY, YOU WILL PAY LESS AND

DOUBLED THE

STANDARD DEDUCTION.

SO OFF THE BACK YOU WILL GET

TWICE AS

MUCH.

ONCE IT PASSES THE BILL,

IT WILL BE

ON THE PRESIDENT'S DESK.

THE WORK IN WASHINGTON IS

NOT OVER.

WHILE THEY STILL FACE THE

BUDGET

DEADLINE BY THE END OF THIS

WEEK.

NO GOVERNMENT WILL SHUTDOWN.

ABIGAIL ROBINSON, CBN NEWS.

AN UPDATE NOW THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION BLOCKED

ENFORCEMENT IN

THE HEZBOLLAH CRIMINAL

NETWORK. NOW

CONGRESS IS CALLING FOR AN

INVESTIGATION.

NORTH CAROLINA REPUBLICAN

ROBERT PEN

GER IS LOOKING FOR THE AGENCY

NOTING

THAT IT WAS BLOCKING THE

HEZBOLLAH

TERRORIST AND THAT DRUG

TRAFFICKING

AND MONEY LAUNDERING THE

OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION PUT UP ROAD

BLOCKS IN

ORDER TO AN APPEASE IRAN TO

STRIKE A

NUCLEAR DEAL.

WE NEED TO LOOK AT THE

ADMINISTRATION TO SEE WHAT

OBAMA DID

WITH THE INVESTIGATION WITH

HEZBOLLAH.

THEY WERE COMING IN ON SOME

VERY

LEADING OFFICIALS WITH

HEZBOLLAH AND

WITH THAT THEY WERE PREVENTED

FROM

GOING FORWARD AND A LOT OF

ROAD BLOCKS

WERE PUT IN THE WAY BECAUSE

THEY

DIDN'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING

AND THEY

WERE DISCOURAGED FROM THAT

IRAN

AGREEMENT.

THE U.S. WILL BE "TAKING

NAMES".

THAT'S WHAT AMBASSADOR NIKKI

HALEY

MADE. THURSDAY THEY WILL VOTE

ON A

NON-BINDING RESOLUTION THAT

COMMUNICATES THE WORLD'S

DISPLEASURE

RECOGNIZING JERUSALEM AS THE

CAPITAL

OF ISRAEL AND MOVING THERE.

HALEY WHO HAS BEEN BIASED

AGAINST THE

BILL, HAS BLOCKED A COUNTER

RESOLUTION

DESIGNED TO REVERT THE

PRESIDENT'S

DECISION. EVERY MEMBER

INCLUDING THE

U-K VOTED FOR IT.

MEANWHILE JERUSALEM IS

CHEERING

TRUMP'S DECISION AND SOME SEE

THE

PRESIDENT'S ANNOUNCEMENT AS

ONE MORE

STEP AS ISRAEL FULFILLING A

PROPHECY.

THE UNITED NATIONS IS

RECOGNIZING

THIS DEVELOPMENT IN THE HOLY

CITY. IT

PASSED JERUSALEM LAW AND

DESIGNATED

JERUSALEM AS THE ETERNAL

UNDIVIDED

CAPITAL OF THE JEWISH STATE

AND

PROTESTED THE NATIONS OF THE

WORLD FOR

JERUSALEM TO MOVE TO TEL

AVIV. BUT

THEY FOUND THE INTERNATIONAL

EMBASSY

TO JERUSALEM.

THEY SAID WE NEED TO

ESTABLISH AN

INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN

JERUSALEM IN

ORDER TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT

NO MATTER

WHAT OUR GOVERNMENTS ARE

DOING, THERE

ARE CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD THAT

DO BELIEVE IN GOD'S

COVENANT'S AND

PROMISES TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

IN 1995, DAVID PARSONS HELPED

WRITE

LEGISLATION KNOWN AS THE

JEWISH

EMBASSY ACT.

TO RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS

THE

CAPITAL, MOVE THE AMBASSADOR

THERE

IMMEDIATELY AND THEN WORRY

ABOUT

BUILDING A BUILDING. BUT AS

THE BILL

WENT THROUGH CONGRESS, IT GOT

CHANGED

AND THEY BUILT THE BUILDING

FIRST AND

THEN AFTER DELAYS AND THE

WAIVER.

BOTH MEN SEE IT ON A

50-YEAR CYCLE

KNOWN AS JUBILEE WHERE EVERY

YEAR IS A

YEAR OF LIBERTY AND

RESTITUTION.

CHARLES WARREN DISCOVERED THE

CITY OF

DAVID AND THEN LATER THE CITY

OF

JERUSALEM ENDING 4 YEARS OF

OTTOMAN

RULE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2,000

YEARS,

THEN CAME 2017.

IF YOU BELIEVE GOD WILL DO

SOMETHING SIGNIFICANTLY THIS

WILL HEAL

JERUSALEM, AND LOW AND

BEHOLD, DONALD

TRUMP RECOGNIZED THIS IN

ISRAEL.

THAT DECIDING FOR JERUSALEM

ITSELF

THAT IT'S FURTHERING IT'S

PROPHETIC

DESTINY.

NOW THEY WILL MOVE THEIR

EMBASSIES.

WE ARE HEARING GUATEMALA

WILL COME

BACK, TANZANIA AND OTHER

COUNTRIES. WE

HOPE THEY HAVE THE COURAGE TO

FOLLOW

THE AMERICAN LEAD

ADMINISTRATION TO

RETURN TO JERUSALEM.

THEY FEEL IT'S CRITICAL

FOR

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORLD

TO PRAY

FOR JERUSALEM.

THE VIOLENCE THAT'S BEEN

THREATENED

THAT GOD IN A YEAR OF FAVOR,

IN A YEAR

OF JUBILEE THAT HE WILL TAKE

CARE OF

THAT AND THAT ANY FIRE IN

JERUSALEM

WILL BE DOWN.

WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THE ARAB

WORLD.

YOU SEE ALL THE UNREST THAT

YOU SEE IN

THE ARAB STREETS AROUND THE

WORLD AND

THE SENSE OF DELUSION AND

DECEPTION

THAT THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

A JAPANESE NEWSPAPER SAYS

NORTH

KOREA HAS LOADED ANTHRAX INTO

IT'S

BALLISTIC MISSILES AND THAT

NORTH

KOREA IS TESTING THE

BIOLOGICAL AGENT

TO SEE IF THE TESTED MISSILES

TOLERATE. THEY ARE PURSUING

MISSILES

AND BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS THAT

COULD BE

DELIVERED BY MISSILE.

THE U.S. HAS WORKED FOR YEARS

AND

PREPARED FOR THE POSSIBILITY

OF --

ANTHRAX ATTACK.

THOSE MEMBERS AROUND THE

WORLD WILL

MEET ON THE 19 TO SHOW

SOLIDARITY

AGAINST A NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

TO SEND THIS TO THE

INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY THAT WE WILL NOT

ACCEPT A

NUCLEAR WEAPONS NATION AND

THAT ALL OF

US SHARE ONE POLICY AND THAT

IS THE

FULL COMPLETE VERIFIABLE OF

THE

CURRENT PENINSULA.

THEY ARE MEETING THIS WEEK

IN

OTTAWA WITH THE FOREIGN

MINISTER.

ACTIVIST IN CANADA ARE

OUTRAGED OF THE

GOVERNMENT'S LATEST MOVE AS

HE'S

ASKING ALL TO SIGN AGREEMENTS

TO

ABORTIONS AND TRANSGENDER

RIGHTS.

IF THEY DON'T, THEY WON'T BE

ABLE TO

RECEIVE JOB SUMMER GRANTS.

THAT THIS

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST

EMPLOYERS AND

NON-PROFITS.

THIS WILL PREVENT STUDENTS

FROM AS

YOUNG AS 16 YEARS OLD THAT DO

NOT

AGREE WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S

VIEWS.

> A BASEBALL STAR IS

DONATING HIS

MULTIMILLION DOLLAR HOME TO A

BASEBALL

CAMP.

THEY ARE GIVING UP THEIR

32,000 SQUARE

FOOT HOME WHICH WILL BE A

CAMP -- FOR

CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

AND IT IS

THE LARGEST DONATION IN THE

HISTORY OF

THE ORGANIZATION.

THEY ALSO OPERATE THEIR OWN

FOUNDATION

THAT SUPPORTS QUALITY

EDUCATION IN THE

U.S. AND ESTABLISHING A

SCHOOL IN

AFRICA. GOOD FOR THEM.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

> ONE OF THE TOP

CONSERVATIVE TANKS

IS BECOMING THE FIRST LEADER.

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

WASHINGTON D.C.

FOUNDATION.

SERVING AS A SENIOR ADVISOR

AND SHE

HAS SERVED IN MULTIPLE

ORGANIZATIONS

AND ALSO OF GOVERNMENT AT

REGENT

UNIVERSITY.

HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN

CALLED HER A

GREAT CHOICE AND STARTING A

MOVEMENT

FOR DECADES.

COMING UP. SILICON VALLEY

BRING

INNOVATION TO THE CHURCH.

> WELCOME BACK.

GOOGLE, APPLE, FACEBOOK,

SILICON

VALLEY IS KNOWN FOR BIG

TECHNOLOGY.

BUT DID YOU KNOW SOME

POWERFUL PLAYERS

IN THE TECH WORLD ARE

ANSWERING THEIR

HIGHEST CALLING TO THEIR

GREATEST

PASSION, THE GOSPEL. WE HAVE

THAT

STORY FROM CALIFORNIA.

SILICON VALLEY IS HOME TO

SOME OF

THE MOST BRILLIANT MINDS IN

TECHNOLOGY

AND INNOVATION. THEIR SKILLS

TAKE THEM

TO WORK TO PLACES LIKE APPLE,

GOOGLE

FACEBOOK.

KEVIN WATCHED BAY AREA

CHURCHES

WITH COUNTLESS OPPORTUNITIES

IN THEIR

PEWS.

WITH SO MANY PEOPLE

SITTING IN OUR

PEWS, THERE IS SO MUCH

POTENTIAL. WE

HAVE PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT,

POLICIES,

MEDICINE, FINANCE AND

TECHNOLOGY.

WHEN WE LOOK AT HOW WE WILL

USHER

PEOPLE TO THEIR SEATS.

THEY LEARN HOW THEY CAN

BRING

INNOVATION TO THE CHURCH.

THE CHURCH NEEDS TO BE

MORE

CREATIVE, MORE DISRUPTIVE.

GOD DESERVES THE BEST OF OUR

IMAGINATION.

OUT OF THAT CAME CODE FOR

THE

KINGDOM.

KEVIN'S FRIEND HELPED HIM GET

IT

STARTED.

THE HACK A THON IS THIS

IDEA OF

GETTING THIS INFORMATION AND

ANSWERING

THE QUESTION.

WE BROUGHT IN 250 OF OUR

FRIENDS

WHO ARE DESIGNERS AND

DEVELOPERS AT

THESE MAJOR TECH COMPANIES.

FRIDAY

NIGHT YOU COME IN AND MEET

EVERYBODY

AND YOU POSE THESE BIG

CHALLENGES.

HERE IS AN ORPHAN PROBLEM IN

THE WORLD

AND HERE IS GLOBAL POVERTY

AND HUMAN

TRAFFICKING AND HERE IS

EVANGELISM.

WE HAD ALL OF THESE BIG

INNOVATION

CHALLENGES AND WE CAST IT OUT

TO

PEOPLE AND SAID, WHAT IDEAS,

WHAT

PLATFORMS, WHAT TECHNOLOGY

WOULD YOU

CREATE TO MOVE THE DIAL ON

THIS. THE

IDEAS ON THE PARTS THAT THEY

CAME UP

WITH, THEY WERE PRETTY

AMAZING IN FACT

SO MUCH SO THAT A LEADER OF

MAJOR TECH

COMPANY SAID WHAT YOU GUYS

DID IN A

WEEKEND, WE COULDN'T DO IN A

MONTH.

THEY WERE GETTING

THOUSANDS OF

IDEAS BUT WERE GETTING TO A

DISCONNECTION BECAUSE THEY

COULDN'T

GET THOSE IDEAS MARKETED.

THIS IS AN IMPACT AND

MAKING SURE

WE WORK HARD.

THEY WENT ON THAT ALONE

AND STARTED

A CARPENTERS'S CODE.

I THOUGHT I COULD MEET

PEOPLE AND I

GOT CALLED INTO DOING IT.

I WASN'T EXPECTING.

HE CAME UP WHAT PROGRAM

CALLED

ABIDE.

ABIDE IS FOR MEDITATION

FOR ABOUT

15 MINUTES. THEY FALL BACK ON

SCRIPTURE AND FOCUS ON THE

BIBLE AND

REALLY TAKES YOU THROUGH A

PROCESS OF

REFLECTION.

MEANWHILE HE STARTED HIS

OWN STUDY

TO FOCUS ON MISSIONAL AL TECH

WORK.

THE IDEA IS THAT HE WILL TAKE

US TO

DEVELOPMENT. WE DIDN'T WANT

TO BE ALL

ABOUT IDEAS AND HEY, WHAT

ABOUT THIS?

WE WERE WITH FEWER IDEAS AND

WORKING

MORE CLOSELY WITH NON-PROFITS

AND THEN

WE WILL DEVELOP A PRODUCT.

EVERY MONDAY NIGHT,

CHRISTIAN

VOLUNTEERS FROM THE TOP

CENTERS OF

SILICON VALLEY COME UP TO

DISCUSS

PROBLEMS THAT THE

ORGANIZATIONS ARE

HAVING AND COMBINE

INNOVATION,

CREATIVITY AND EXPERTISE, TO

FIGURE

OUT NOT ONLY THE SOLUTION TO

THE

PROBLEM, BUT HOW TO IMPLEMENT

IT.

ONE OF BASAL'S CURRENT

PROJECT IS THE

INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE

MISSION.

WE DID A BRAINSTORM WITH

THEM WHICH

IS LED BY ONE OF OUR KEY

MEMBERS WHO

IS AN EXPERT IN DESIGN

THINKING. IN

THE SESSION, ARE WE

DISCOVERED FROM

INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION

THAT

THESE PERPETRATORS OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING WERE USING

TECHNOLOGIES

FOR THEIR EVIL PURPOSES SO A

LOT OF

OUR PEOPLE WHO WORK IN TECH,

THEY WERE

LIKE, MAN, THAT CAN'T HAPPEN.

WE WANT

TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

THE TEAM HOPES THAT BY

MAKING MAJOR

TECH COMPANIES AN AWARE, THEY

CAN COME

UP WITH SOLUTIONS TOGETHER

AND THEY

CAN EVENTUALLY EXPAND. FOR

NOW, THEY

PLAN TO FINE TUNE THEIR

PROCESS AND

SPREADING THEIR WORD TO DO

SOME OF THE

BRIGHTEST WORK FOR THE

KINGDOM.

YOUR DREAMS AND JUST ABOUT

FEELINGS.

HE WAS GOING TO LIVE THE

LIFE OF

HIS DREAMS.

AS YOUR SERVICE.

PUTTING TOGETHER A SHOW AND I

NEEDED

--

NOTHING ANYBODY SAID WOULD

STOP

HIM. HE FOLLOWED HIS OWN PATH

AND ANY

SETBACK HE HAD, HE SET THAT

INTO A

PROFIT.

IT'S SOMETHING HE'S NEVER

SEEN

BEFORE.

HE BELIEVES THAT WHAT

MAKES YOU

DIFFERENT ACTUALLY MAKES YOU

SPECIAL.

WHAT HE REPRESENTS THIS IDEA

THAT HE

CAN BE WHATEVER YOU WANT.

YOU CAN CHOOSE THE LIFE THAT

YOU WANT

TO BE.

YES, YOU HAVE TO WORK HARD,

YES, YOU

HAVE TO HAVE TALENT.

THAT'S WHY FOR ME, IT'S THE

UNIQUELY

AMERICAN STORY.

I WANT TO INTRODUCE MY NEWEST

HIRE.

THE BIGGEST BREAKTHROUGH

FOR

PHILLIP, FOR REALLY ANYONE IN

THE

MOVIE IS THE MOMENT THAT YOU

REALIZE

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH

THE

BOUNDARIES THAT EVERYONE ELSE

HAS SET

THROUGHOUT HISTORY OF TIME.

YOU DON'T

HAVE TO FOLLOW THE RULES. YOU

DON'T

HAVE TO COLOR INSIDE THE

LINES.

WHAT IS YOUR ACT?

I DON'T HAVE AN ACT.

EVERYONE'S GOT AN ACT.

AND YOU FALL IN LOVE.

EVEN THOUGH IT'S SET IN THE

THEY NEED TO HEAR THESE

WORDS.

THERE IS LITERALLY SOMEONE

GRABBING

ME, SWINGING ME AROUND.

IT'S SO COOL TO ME THAT

EVERYONE IS

GOING TO BE ABLE TO TUNE IN A

VERY

DIFFERENT WAY AND HOPEFULLY

LEAD TO A

VERY FANTASTICAL MAGICAL

EXPERIENCE

AND OBVIOUSLY SINGING AND

DANCING.

IT'S JUST A BEAUTIFUL

MESSAGE. IT

REALLY DOES EMPOWER PEOPLE TO

JUST BE

THEMSELVES.

WE END UP WITH SOMETHING

THAT IS

TRULY MAGICAL.

TELL ME DO YOU WANT TO GO.

IT'S TAKING OVER YOU.

WHOEVER MADE A DIFFERENCE

BY LIKING

EVERYONE ELSE?
