AMERICA JOINS A SOUTH

DISBELIEF IS THE ONLY WAY

THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN

AFFECTED BY THIS SOUTH

DESCRIBE WHAT THEY ARE

FEELING.

THURSDAY NIGHT, THOUSANDS

GATHERED IN A LOCAL PARK

TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS AND

MOURN THE LOSS OF 17

VICTIMS WHO'S LIVES AND

FUTURES WERE LOST.

THROUGHOUT THE CROWD AT

THE PINE TRAILS PARK

AMPHITHEATER, PEOPLE

GREETED ONE ANOTHER WITH

HUGS AND TEARS.

17 CROSSES LINE THE GRASS

FIELDS AS MARJORY STONEMAN

DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL

STUDENTS RELEASED CONES IN

THE AIR.

I HAD ORIGINALLY SEEN

THEM AFTER THE FIRE ALARM

GOT PULLED.

HE STARTED HEADING HIS WAY

TO THE FRESHMAN BUILDING.

HE WAS DEFINITELY GOING

TOWARDS THE GUNFIRE.

I TOLD THIS ONE GIRL

THAT I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY

TO JUST HUG AND EMBRACE

AND COMFORT, AND TO LET

HER KNOW THAT GOD IS

GRIEVING.

HE IS HERE AND HE IS

GRIEVING WITH US.

THAT THEY'RE NOT ALONE.

THAT HE IS HERE IN THE

MIDST OF THE PAIN AND THE

GRIEF, AND HIS LOVE IS

PRESENT.

Reporter: EARLIER

THURSDAY, THE SUSPECTED

SHOOTER, 19-YEAR-OLD

NIKOLAS CRUZ, WAS

ARRAIGNED, SHACKLED, AND

WEARING AN ORANGE

JUMPSUIT.

HE WAS DENIED BOND.

CRUZ, WHO LOST HIS MOTHER

IN NOVEMBER AND FATHER

SEVERAL YEARS AGO LEGALLY

PURCHASED THE AR-15 RIFLE

LAST FEBRUARY.

HE REMAINS ON SUICIDE

WATCH.

THE CRIMINAL COMPLAINT

STATES CRUZ CONFESSED TO

PLANNING AND COMMITTING

THE MURDERS.

THE SUSPECT CROSSED

FIELDS AND RAN WEST, ALONG

WITH OTHERS WHO WERE

FLEEING, AND TRIED TO MIX

IN WITH THE GROUP THAT

WERE RUNNING AWAY, FEARING

FOR THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP ADDRESSED THE

COUNTRY FROM THE WHITE

HOUSE.

President Trump: NO

CHILD, NO TEACHER, SHOULD

EVER BE IN DANGER IN AN

AMERICAN SCHOOL.

WE ARE COMMITTED TO

WORKING WITH STATE AND

LOCAL LEADERS THE HELP

SECURE OUR SCHOOLS AND

TACKLE THE DIFFICULT ISSUE

OF MENTAL HEALTH.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT DOES PLAN TO

VISIT THE COMMUNITY

POSSIBLY THIS WEEKEND.

COMMUNITY LEADERS SAY

THROUGH THE POWER OF

PRAYER AND THEIR FAITH,

THEY WILL TURN THIS

TRAGEDY INTO SOMETHING

POSITIVE.

TURN THE DARKNESS THAT

THEY ARE FEELING INTO

LIGHT.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS,

PARKLAND, FLORIDA.

Efrem: STUDENTS IN

FACULTY ARE REMEMBERING

THE HEROS WHO GAVE THEIR

LIVES TO PROTECT THEM.

ERIAARON FRYES RAN TOWARDS

THE GUNSHOTS, SHIELDING

THE STUDENTS.

SCOTT BEAGLE UNLOCKED HIS

DOOR TO FLEEING STUDENTS

INSIDE.

BEFORE HE COULD CLOSE AND

RELOCK THE DOOR, THE

GUNMAN SHOT AND KILLED

HIM.

AND ALL OF THE STUDENTS

INSIDE SURVIVED.

AND TEACHER MELISSA LOCKED

HERSELF IN A CLOSET WITH

19 STUDENTS AND MANAGED TO

KEEP THEM CALM AND QUIET,

AND SHE AND HER STUDENTS

SURVIVED THAT ATTACK.

> SENATORS LEAVE

WASHINGTON EMPTY-HANDED

AFTER A NUMBER OF BILLS

THEY COULD NOT COME TO AN

AGREEMENT ON.

ON HOW TO ADDRESS THE

SO-CALLED DREAMERS AND

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THIS

STORY.

Reporter: THE U.S.

SENATE DEBATING A FIX FOR

YOUNG IMMIGRANTS BROUGHT

TO THE U.S. ILLEGALLY AS

CHILDREN BY THEIR PARENTS

AND TAKING UP IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

WE HAVE A CHANCE THIS

WEEK TO GET IT RIGHT.

Reporter: IN THE END,

THE SENATE REJECTEDED BOTH REJECTED BOTH A

BIPARTISAN PLAN AND ONE

PROPOSED BY THE PRESIDENT.

I THOUGHT OUR FRIENDS

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

AISLE WOULD JUMP AT THEIR

CHANCE TO WHAT THEY SAY IS

THEIR TOP PRIORITY, BUT

THEY JUST COULDN'T ACCEPT

A GOOD OFFER.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S PLAN FELL 21

VOTES SHY OF THE 60

NEEDED, PROVING THE

CHALLENGE HE FACES OF

FIXING DACA AND ADDRESSING

IMMIGRATION IN AN ELECTION

YEAR.

REPUBLICANS FACE

DEMOCRATS, AND DEMOCRATS

BLAME THE PRESIDENT.

WE'VE ALL BEEN

EXTREMELY CLEAR FROM THE

BEGINNING ON WHAT WE WANT

AND WHAT WE DESERVE FOR

OUR IMMIGRANT FAMILIES AND

COMMUNITIES.

AND THAT WAS A CLEAN DREAM

ACT.

Reporter: THERE IS

TENSION IN COMMUNITIES

WITH LARGE IMMIGRANT

POPULATIONS.

HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS

WALKED OUT OF THIS HOUSTON

HIGH SCHOOL AFTER RUMORS

SPREAD THAT A STUDENT WAS

ARRESTED FOR A FIGHT.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GIVING

CONGRESS UNTIL MARCH 5th

TO APPROVE DACA, OR WATCH

HIM REMOVE MEASURES.

THEY NEED TO GET SERIOUS

ABOUT FINDING A SOLUTION

THAT CAN GET ENOUGH VOTES

TO PASS AND BECOME LAW.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN'S,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD

HERE ON CBN "NEWSWATCH,"

ISRAEL AT 70.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK

AT HOW IT IS BECOMING A

LIGHT UNTO THE NATION.

Efrem: ISRAEL

CELEBRATES ITS 70th

ANNIVERSARY IN JUST A

MATTER OF WEEKS.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS A LOOK

AT WHERE THE INFANT STATE

WAS IN 1948, WHERE IT IS

TODAY, AND HOW IT IS

FULFILLING ANCIENT

PROPHECY.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Chris: ON MAY 14th,

1948, ISRAEL TOOK ITS

PLACE AMONG THE NATIONS

WHEN DAVID BEN-GURION

NOWNLD THANNOUNCED THE

ESTABLISHMENT OF THE

JEWISH STATE.

WHAT WAS THE SITUATION

IN MAY 1948, WHEN WE WERE

600,000 PEOPLE HERE, ABOUT

HALF THE SIZE OF A

MID-SIZED AMERICAN CITY,

WITH BASICALLY HANDGUNS

FIGHTING SIX ARAB ARMIES

THAT CAME WITHIN SIX MILES

OF TEL AVIV, BY THE WAY.

NO ECONOMY.

NO ALLIES.

A POPULATION THAT WAS

STILL LANGUISHING IN A

DISPLACED PERSON CAMP.

THINK ABOUT THAT.

Chris: 70 YEARS

LATER, ISRAEL NOT ONLY

SURVIVED, BUT THRIVED.

WE HAVE ONE OF THE MOST

POWERFUL ARMIES IN THE

WORLD, WORLD LEADER IN

TECHNOLOGY.

ISRAEL IS REGULARLY LISTED

ONE OF THE SEVENTH OR

EIGHTH MOST POWERFUL

COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD.

IN AN HISTORICAL

PERSPECTIVE, I THINK THAT

ISRAEL'S SITUATION IS

NOTHING LESS SHORT OF

MIRACULOUS.

Chris: ISRAEL'S

CONTINUING MIRACLE IS NOT

ONLY THAT IT HAS THRIVED,

BUT NOW HELPS NATIONS IN

NEED.

BECAUSE WE'RE A LIGHT

UNTO THE NATIONS.

THAT IS A FULFILLMENT OF

THAT GREAT PROPHECY.

ISRAEL IS DOING IT IN

PLACES LIKE HAITI OR THE

PHILIPPINES OR IN MEXICO.

Chris: WHEN ISRAEL

SENT AID TO MEXICO AFTER

THEIR RECENT DEVASTATING

EARTHQUAKE, MEXICANS

APPLAUDED THEM ON THE

STREETS.

THEY JUST LOVE ISRAEL.

AND YOU SEE THAT

ELSEWHERE, IN MANY PLACES

AROUND THE WORLD.

PEOPLE SAY, WHAT IS IT

THAT YOU GET OUT OF IT?

AND THE ANSWER IS, WE'RE

NOT GETTING OUT OF IT

ANYTHING.

WE'RE FULFILLING OUR

DEEPEST VALUES.

ISRAEL IS A LIGHT UNTO THE

NATIONS.

Chris: ISRAEL IS NOT

JUST GOING TO THE NATIONS,

BUT NOW THE NATIONS ARE

COMING TO ISRAEL.

THE COMPANY IS CALLED "OUR

CROWD," WHICH HAS BROUGHT

90,000 PEOPLE FROM AROUND

THE WORLD HERE TO

JERUSALEM, BRINGING

TOGETHER INNOVATION AND

INVESTMENT.

IT TURNS OUT ISRAEL IS

THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT

SOURCE OF INNOVATION, AND

INNOVATIVE COMPANIES IN

THE WORLD, OUTSIDE OF THE

UNITED STATES' SILICONE

VALLEY.

WE'RE LOOKING ACROSS THE

WALLS TO JERUSALEM.

WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN DREAMERS

HERE IN ISRAEL, WHETHER IT

IS BACK IN THE TIME OF

ABRAHAM AND THE PROPHETS,

THERE IS ALWAYS GOOD NEWS

THAT COMES FROM THIS

PROFIT.

TODAY THE GOOD NEWS IS

ABOUT INNOVATION AND

TECHNOLOGY.

Chris: AND 70 YEARS

ON, ISRAEL IS PROTECTING

THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE GOOD

NEWS AND MORE.

WE BELIEVE THIS IS

ACCORDING TO WHAT WE HAVE

LEARNED FROM THE OLD

TESTAMENT.

Chris: THIS MAN

SERVES AS A CONSULTANT FOR

THE TOWER OF DAVID MUSEUM

IN JERUSALEM.

HE SAYS ISRAEL, SINCE ITS

FOUNDING, HAS PRESERVED

THE HISTORICAL AND

BIBLICAL SITES AND OPENED

ITS DOOR TO PEOPLE OF ALL

FAITHS.

HE SAYS IT IS A MISSION.

TOURISM IS MUCH MORE

THAN JUST MAKING MONEY.

TOURISM IS MAKING FRIENDS.

TOURISM IS MAKING A

HISTORY.

TOURISM IS MAKING YOUR

PARTNERSHIP AROUND THE

WORLD A LOT SAFER.

IT GROWS STRONGER WITH

EVERY TOURIST COMING TO

ISRAEL AND LEAVING AND

GOING BACK HOME AND

TALKING ABOUT ISRAEL.

Chris: HE SAYS A

VISIT TO ISRAEL FOR

CHRISTIANS SHOULD BE A

PERSONAL MISSION.

WE'RE ALL THE SAME.

BEFORE COMING TO ISRAEL,

YOU READ THE BIBLE AND IT

IS BLACK AND WHITE.

ONCE VISITING ISRAEL,

EVERY TIME YOU READ ABOUT

PAUL, PETER, OR JESUS, IT

IS ALL VIVID.

AND EVERYTHING BECOMES IN

FULL COLOR, FULL H.D.

SOMETHING HAPPENS IN YOUR

SOUL, AND WE SAY, YOU'LL

NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.

THIS IS MY MESSAGE TO OUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN

THE CHRISTIAN WORLD.

VISITING ISRAEL IS A PART

OF YOUR SOUL AND HERITAGE,

NOT MINE ONLY.

IF YOU WISH TO UNDERSTAND

YOURSELF AND YOUR BIBLE

BETTER AND YOUR FRIENDS

AND THE NEXT TIME YOU GO

TO CHURCH, YOU NEED TO BE

HERE.

IT IS A MISSION FOR LIFE.

Chris: WHETHER

HELPING THE WORLD THROUGH

HUMANITARIAN OUT REACH, OR

BEING THE RESPONSIBLE

STEWARDS OF HISTORY, THESE

ARE SIMPLY A FULFILLMENT

OF ISRAEL'S MISSION TO THE

WORD.

THE JEWISH PRINCIPLE OF

REPAIRING THE WORLD.

AND AS THE HEBREW PROPHET

ISAIAH WROTE MORE THAN

2700 YEARS AGO, TO BE A

LIGHT TO THE NATIONS.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: CYBER THREATS

ARE VERY REAL AND THEY

AFFECT PEOPLE IN ALL WALKS

OF LIFE.

THAT REALITY PROMPTED

REGENT UNIVERSITY TO HOLD

A CYBER SECURITY SUMMIT

JUST THIS WEEK.

SPEAKERS FROM GOOGLE,

HEWLETT-PACKARD, AND THE

F.B.I. PROVIDED THE

LESSONS.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS SUCH

AN OVERWHELMING DOMAIN,

CYBER SECURITY, THERE ARE

EXPERTS, AND THERE IS

INFORMATION AVAILABLE.

THERE ARE SMART WAYS THE

THINK ABOUT CYBER SECURITY

AND CYBER TECHNOLOGIES,

AND IN SMART WAYS, TO ACT

ON THOSE TECHNOLOGIES AND

HOW WE USE THEM AND H HOW WE

EDUCATE THE NEXT

GENERATION AND THE

WORKFORCE.

Efrem: THE SCHOOL HAS

AN INSTITUTE FOR CYBER

SECURITY.

IT OFFERS ASSOCIATES', BAP

BACHELORS' AND A

DOCTORATES.

> STILL AHEAD ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," WE LOOK AT

THE MUCH-ANTICIPATED

MARVEL FILM, "BLACK

PANTHER."

Efrem: THE FIRST

BLACK SUPER HERO IN

MAINSTREAM AMERICAN COMIC

BOOKS IS "BLACK PANTHER."

I SAT DOWN WITH THE STARS

OF THE FILM TO BRING YOU

THIS "STUDIO 5" FIRST LOOK

AT "BLACK PANTHER."

> THIS FILM IS SPECIAL

ON SO MANY LEVELS.

DO YOU FEEL THAT GOING IN?

YES.

I KNEW JUST IN THE NOVELTY

OF IT, YOU KNOW, THE FACT

THAT IT IS THE FIRST BLACK

SUPER HERO MOVIE ON THIS

PLATFORM, YOU KNOW -- I

KNEW THAT THERE WAS

SOMETHING THERE, BUT I

ALSO KNEW THAT THE WORLD

OF WACONDA -- THE FACT

THAT IT NODS TO WHAT, YOU

KNOW, ANCIENT

CIVILIZATIONS, AFRICAN

EMPIRES -- YOU CAN PULL

FROM MANY DIFFERENT

PLACES.

YOU CAN SAY, I'M GOING TO

PULL FROM THIS GREAT

COUNTRY, AND THIS GREAT

THING FROM THIS LEADER,

AND THIS GREAT THING FROM

THIS WARRIOR TRIBE -- YOU

CAN PULL FROM ALL OF THE

BEST THINGS, SO I KNEW

THAT WAS SPECIAL.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

GOING TO BE SPECIAL ABOUT

THIS MOVIE.

FIRST OF ALL, BRINGING AN

AFRICAN SUPER HERO TO

LIFE, BUT REALLY

IMPORTANTLY, THAT RYAN

COOGLER WAS GOING TO BE

DIRECTING THE FILM.

AND I KNEW IT WAS GOING

TO BE SPECIAL, ALSO, JUST

SHOWING UP ON THE SET AND

SEEING THE AMAZING GROUP

THAT HAD BEEN, YOU KNOW,

BROUGHT TOGETHER FROM

ACROSS THE WORLD.

YOU KNOW, AND BEHIND THE

CAMERA.

THAT JUST FELT INCREDIBLY

UNIQUE, JUST ARTISTS WHO

WERE WORKING AT THE

HIGHEST CALIBER OF THEIR

TALENT AND THEIR ABILITIES

AND POTENTIAL.

IT HAD ALL OF THE

POTENTIAL IN THE WORLD TO

DO WHAT WE EXPECTED IT

WILL DO, AND THAT IS,

BREAK ALL BOX OFFICE

RECORDS AND BUST DOWN ALL

STEREOTYPES.

[LAUGHTER]

WHATEVER IT IS YOU HAVE

ALWAYS THOUGHT.

Efrem: I WAS

INITIALLY EXCITED TO SHARE

THE "BLACK PANTHER"

CHARACTER WITH MY SON.

BUT AFTER SEEING YOUR

PERFORMANCE, I AM EVEN

MORE EXCITED TO SHARE THE

FILM WITH MY 10-YEAR-OLD

DAUGHTER.

AH, NICE.

NICE.

Efrem: WHAT DID YOU

THINK ABOUT THE POWER OF

WOMEN, FROM YOURSELF --

IT IS ASTOUNDING THE

WAY THAT THE WOMEN ARE

PORTRAYED IN THIS MOVIE.

WE EXPECT THE MEN TO SHOW

UP, BUT THE WOMEN

COUNSELLING HIM, AND HE

NEEDS THAT INPUT.

IT IS AMAZING.

AND MY DAUGHTER, LIKE,, LIKE

YOURS IS YOUNG, 12 YEARS

OLD.

AND SHE WAS -- JUST TO

SEE -- YOU KNOW, WE CAN

LOOK AT OUR CHILDREN AND

WE SEE WHEN THEY'RE A

LITTLE SHY OR A LITTLE

INTIMIDATED OR SOMETHING,

BUT THAT EVENING, TO SEE

HER RISE UP AND FEEL

SOMETHING GLORIOUS AND

STRONG AND POWERFUL WITHIN

HER BEING, YOU KNOW, IT

WAS EVIDENT.

AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

AND THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT

TO SEE.

THAT'S WHAT YOU LONG TO

SEE.

THAT'S WHAT YOU KNOW IS

AVAILABLE IN YOUR

CHILDREN'S LIVES.

Efrem: ARE THERE ANY

WOMEN HEROS IN YOUR LIFE

THAT YOU MODELED NIKIA

AFTER?

THAT'S A VERY GOOD

QUESTION.

I HAVE AN AUNT.

AND HER SPIRIT REMINDED ME

OF NIKIA.

NIKIA HAS A POWER THAT SHE

WIELDS, BUT SHE WIELDS IT

IN SECRET MOST OF THE

TIME.

SHE'S AN UNDERCOVER SPY.

AND I THINK THAT'S MY

AUNTIE.

Efrem: DANIEL, LAST

YEAR WE WERE TALKING ABOUT

YOUR PERFORMANCE IN "GET

OUT."

YOU HAVE YOUR

DEODORANT?

YEAH.

IT AIN'T ALL BLACK.

MOM AND DAD, MY BLACK

BOYFRIEND WILL BE COMING

UP THIS WEEKEND.

Efrem: AND NOW WE

SIT, TALKING ABOUT YOU

BEING PART OF ONE OF THE

MOST ANTICIPATED FILMS OF

A LONG TIME.

ARE YOU LIVING AN ACTING

DREAM AT THIS POINT TREG.

ALLEGEDLY.

I FEEL, LIKE, YEAH.

I KIND OF FEEL LIKE, MAN,

I'M BLESSED.

THAT'S REAL.

TO BE DOING THIS JOB IS A

BLESSED SITUATION.

TO BE DOING THIS JOB WITH

THESE PEOPLE IS A BLESSED

SITUATION.

AND IT IS THRILLING TO BE

GIVEN A BIG PLATFORM

BECAUSE SOME FILMS GET

BURIED.

IT HAS TO DO WITH THE

TIMING MORE THAN ME.

SO I KIND OF, LIKE, AM THE

VESSEL FOR THAT.

Efrem: IT IS A

WONDERFUL FILM, I MUST

SAY.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT "FOCUS

ON THE FAMILY" GIVES IT IS

A 3.5 OUT OF 5 FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

I PERSONALLY GIVE IT A

FIVE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: THE BIBLICAL

STORY OF SAMPSON ALSO HITS

THE BIG SCREEN TODAY.

BEN KENNEDY SAT DOWN WITH

THE STAR OF THE FILM TO

SHOW US WHAT HE FELT

BRINGING THAT CHARACTER TO

LIFE.

I REMEMBER THE PROPHECY

PROPHECY.

Reporter: SAMPSON IS

AN ACTION-PACKED MOVIE,

BASED ON THE BIBLICAL

STORY OF SAMPSON, A

CHAMPION CHOSEN BY GOD TO

DELIVER ISRAEL.

HOW DID YOUR FAITH

IMPACT THE WAY YOU PLAYED

THIS CHARACTER?

I GREW UP BEING A

CHRISTIAN.

I USED TO ATTEND SUNDAY

SCHOOL AND GO TO CHURCH ON

THE WEEKENDS.

BUT LIKE MOST, OR SOME,

TEENAGERS, I DID SPORT AND

OTHER ACTIVITIES.

BUT THE MORALS AND THE

ETHICS THAT ARE INSTILLED

WITH YOU IN RELIGION, THEY

STAYED WITH ME.

MY NAME IS SAMPSON.

MY NAME IS SAMPSON.

AND I SERVE THE LIVING

GOD.

Reporter: GOD CALLED

SAMPSON TO FREE HIS PEOPLE

FROM THE PHILIPPINE PHILISTINES.

AND THE KING SENT SOLDIERS

TO DEFEAT HIM.

THE ODDS WERE AGAINST

SAMPSON.

HE WAS OUTNUMBERED.

THE PHILISTINES HAD A

BIGGER ARMY.

HOW DID HE DEFEAT SO MANY?

CLEARLY THE STRENGTH

FROM GOD.

IT WAS FUNDAMENTAL FOR

BRUCE, THE DIRECTOR, THAT

WE SAW THAT SPIRIT LEAVE

SAMPSON.

WE SAW THE MOMENT WHERE

GOD COMES INTO HIM, AND WE

SEE THE MOMENT WHERE GOD

LEAVES HIM.

AND GOD IS ALWAYS WITH

US -- DON'T GET ME

WRONG -- BUT IT IS THE

POWER, THE STRENGTH, THE

RAW EMOTION THAT GOT HIM

THROUGH THAT.

THAT WAS PURELY FROM GOD.

Reporter: FOLLOWING

THEIR DEFEAT, THE

PHILISTINES WERE

DETERMINED TO UNCOVER

SAMPSON'S WEAKNESS, WHICH

THEY EVENTUALLY DID.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

EPIC PART OF THE MOVIE,

SAMPSON HAS BEEN BLINDED,

HIS HAIR IS CUT, AND HE

HAS LOST HIS STRENGTH.

HOW DID HE PUSH THE

PILLARS?

IN ONE FINAL CALLING TO

GOD, HE SAYS, GOD, GIVE ME

STRENGTH ONE LAST TIME AND

LET ME DIE WITH THE

PHILISTINES.

Reporter: JAMES

SHOWED ME HOW HE GOT INTO

CHARACTER FOR THE EPIC

FINALE.

YOU WANT TO TAKE A

LEADING HAND, AND THAT

GIVES YOU STABILITY TO

STAND UP ON BOTH FEET.

FROM THERE, YOU WANT TO

TAKE A NICE, STRONG BASE

AND YOU JUST WANT TO

BELIEVE AND YOU WANT TO

PUSH.

THERE YOU GO.

Reporter: IS THAT

OKAY?

YEAH.

YOU JUST DON'T HAVE THE

PEOPLE SCREAMING, WATCH

OUT!

Reporter: AND THEN

JAMES SHOWED ME HOW IT IS

REALLY DONE.

HE SAYS, GOD, GIVE ME

STRENGTH, AND HIS HANDS

BREAK FREE, AND HE USES

THOSE PILLARS TO GUIDE

HIM, AND HE COMES UP, AND

HE IS WEAK, HE HASN'T

EATEN, AND HE IS HERE.

THERE WE GO.

THIS IS FUN.

KIDS ARE GOING TO HAVE A

GREAT TIME ON THIS.

Reporter: THIS IS WHY

YOU'RE AN ACTOR AND I'M

JUST INTERVIEWING YOU.

THAT WAS FANTASTIC.

Reporter: SAMPSON'S

JOURNEY OF PASSION,

BETRAYAL, AND ULTIMATELY

REDEMPTION, AIMS TO

INSPIRE AUDIENCES.

THE ULTIMATE MESSAGE

IS: NO MATTER HOW MANY

TIMES WE'VE FAILED OR NO

MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WE

FEEL WE'RE FLAWED, WE MUST

ALWAYS FINISH STRONG

BECAUSE GOD WILL LOVE US

NO MATTER WHAT.

Reporter: AFTER YEARS

OF FAILING, GOD WAS WITH

SAMPSON AT EVERY TURN TO

HELP HIM GET BACK ON

TRACK.

FOR CBN NEWS, I'M BEN

KENNEDY IN WASHINGTON.
