  • - Darren Wilson: For 10 years,
  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:01.010
  • I've traveled the world in an
  • 00:00:01.010 --> 00:00:01.270
  • attempt to film God touching
  • 00:00:01.270 --> 00:00:03.020
  • people's lives.
  • 00:00:03.020 --> 00:00:04.110
  • And I've captured some of the
  • 00:00:04.110 --> 00:00:05.140
  • most incredible moments of faith
  • 00:00:05.140 --> 00:00:06.250
  • and miracles ever caught
  • 00:00:06.250 --> 00:00:08.000
  • on film.
  • 00:00:08.000 --> 00:00:09.050
  • But I've discovered that faith
  • 00:00:09.050 --> 00:00:10.080
  • is as much about questions as
  • 00:00:10.080 --> 00:00:11.160
  • it is answers, as much mystery
  • 00:00:11.160 --> 00:00:13.100
  • as it is certainty.
  • 00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:15.090
  • So, I want to take you
  • 00:00:15.090 --> 00:00:16.150
  • on a new adventure.
  • 00:00:16.150 --> 00:00:17.290
  • Together, we'll wrestle
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:18.270
  • with big questions about God,
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:20.040
  • but we'll also see faith
  • 00:00:20.040 --> 00:00:21.190
  • in its purest form.
  • 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:23.130
  • It's time to face our questions
  • 00:00:23.130 --> 00:00:24.220
  • head on.
  • 00:00:24.220 --> 00:00:25.200
  • It's time to see proof
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:26.220
  • that God exists.
  • 00:00:26.220 --> 00:00:28.010
  • It's time for
  • 00:00:28.010 --> 00:00:29.010
  • - Darren: I once heard of a
  • 00:00:33.070 --> 00:00:33.270
  • group of guys who took Jesus's
  • 00:00:33.270 --> 00:00:34.290
  • promise that we would do greater
  • 00:00:34.290 --> 00:00:36.130
  • things than even he did so
  • 00:00:36.130 --> 00:00:37.190
  • seriously that they spent an
  • 00:00:37.190 --> 00:00:39.200
  • entire afternoon trying to walk
  • 00:00:39.200 --> 00:00:41.090
  • on the water in their swimming
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:42.220
  • pool.
  • 00:00:42.220 --> 00:00:43.250
  • It was claimed that a couple of
  • 00:00:43.250 --> 00:00:45.000
  • them actually made it halfway
  • 00:00:45.000 --> 00:00:46.070
  • across the pool before they
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:47.150
  • sank, but my guess is this is
  • 00:00:47.150 --> 00:00:49.180
  • But the truth remains the same,
  • 00:00:51.220 --> 00:00:52.260
  • namely that almost every
  • 00:00:52.260 --> 00:00:54.190
  • Christian believes that God can
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:56.110
  • do the impossible.
  • 00:00:56.110 --> 00:00:58.130
  • But when it comes to applying
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:00:59.170
  • that belief to their own life
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:01.020
  • doesn't seem so possible.
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:05.160
  • Which begs the question, why is
  • 00:01:05.160 --> 00:01:07.100
  • faith so difficult?
  • 00:01:07.100 --> 00:01:09.230
  • For all the importance God puts
  • 00:01:09.230 --> 00:01:10.250
  • on us having faith in him, he
  • 00:01:10.250 --> 00:01:12.130
  • sure did make it hard to do.
  • 00:01:12.290 --> 00:01:15.290
  • When I was filming a movie
  • 00:01:15.290 --> 00:01:16.260
  • called "Father of Lights," I was
  • 00:01:16.260 --> 00:01:18.020
  • faced with this exact problem.
  • 00:01:18.020 --> 00:01:20.210
  • I asked God to allow me to film
  • 00:01:20.210 --> 00:01:22.060
  • something impossible.
  • 00:01:22.060 --> 00:01:24.160
  • Now, it's one thing to say that
  • 00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:25.260
  • you have faith in God to do the
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:27.110
  • impossible, but it's something
  • 00:01:27.110 --> 00:01:29.000
  • else entirely to do so with the
  • 00:01:29.000 --> 00:01:31.010
  • whole world watching.
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:33.060
  • The adventure started pretty
  • 00:01:33.060 --> 00:01:34.080
  • much as soon as we got off the
  • 00:01:34.080 --> 00:01:35.180
  • plane and went to the car rental
  • 00:01:35.180 --> 00:01:37.030
  • place to pick up our car, and my
  • 00:01:37.030 --> 00:01:39.030
  • friend Todd White started
  • 00:01:39.030 --> 00:01:40.170
  • - Todd White: Sit back
  • 00:01:52.010 --> 00:01:53.010
  • the whole way, sit back
  • 00:01:53.010 --> 00:01:53.170
  • the whole way.
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:54.140
  • Your butt, scoot your butt back.
  • 00:01:54.140 --> 00:01:55.100
  • Nope, like this, put your butt
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.000
  • Yeah, it's the same thing, look.
  • 00:02:03.030 --> 00:02:04.240
  • You see?
  • 00:02:08.080 --> 00:02:10.220
  • You see which one's short,
  • 00:02:10.220 --> 00:02:11.160
  • which one's long?
  • 00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:13.110
  • Yeah, you see?
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:19.130
  • Yeah, okay.
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.250
  • Now watch, okay?
  • 00:02:21.250 --> 00:02:23.100
  • This is not a trick, you'll feel
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:24.110
  • your leg grow out.
  • 00:02:24.110 --> 00:02:25.250
  • You have a disc, you have one
  • 00:02:25.250 --> 00:02:26.280
  • disc in your back.
  • 00:02:26.280 --> 00:02:27.220
  • Do you have pain down your leg?
  • 00:02:27.220 --> 00:02:29.270
  • Does it come down your leg
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:30.160
  • at all?
  • 00:02:31.100 --> 00:02:34.100
  • Watch.
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:36.040
  • Okay, in Jesus' name, in Jesus'
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:38.230
  • name, left leg grow, come out
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:40.150
  • now.
  • 00:02:45.160 --> 00:02:48.160
  • You feel it come?
  • 00:02:48.160 --> 00:02:49.290
  • That's good.
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:51.180
  • - female: You okay?
  • 00:02:51.180 --> 00:02:52.190
  • What are you doing to this--
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:53.240
  • - Todd: I'm just praying, see?
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:55.060
  • It's not--stand up.
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:02:56.140
  • Sorry, stand up and bend, check.
  • 00:02:58.200 --> 00:03:01.220
  • Come back up, come back up?
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:03.060
  • Father, thank you in Jesus'
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:05.100
  • name.
  • 00:03:05.100 --> 00:03:07.000
  • It's going to go, just hold on.
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:08.140
  • In Jesus' name, I command this
  • 00:03:08.140 --> 00:03:09.290
  • to go right now.
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:11.090
  • Every muscle, every tendon,
  • 00:03:11.090 --> 00:03:12.170
  • every ligament be healed right
  • 00:03:12.170 --> 00:03:13.200
  • now.
  • 00:03:13.200 --> 00:03:16.170
  • In Jesus' name, loosen.
  • 00:03:19.110 --> 00:03:22.110
  • It's good?
  • 00:03:29.170 --> 00:03:30.110
  • - male: Fantastic.
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:31.040
  • Thank you very much, thank you.
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:32.170
  • - Todd: Jesus loves you guys so
  • 00:03:32.170 --> 00:03:33.100
  • much.
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:35.010
  • I know it's crazy, but he
  • 00:03:35.010 --> 00:03:35.270
  • loves--I'm good, no.
  • 00:03:35.270 --> 00:03:38.140
  • Give me hugs, man.
  • 00:03:38.140 --> 00:03:40.170
  • Nice to meet you.
  • 00:03:40.170 --> 00:03:43.020
  • What's your name?
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:43.240
  • - male: Muti.
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:44.270
  • - Todd: Muti?
  • 00:03:44.270 --> 00:03:45.170
  • - Darren: And the question
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:48.210
  • we're looking at today is,
  • 00:03:48.210 --> 00:03:49.230
  • why is faith so difficult?
  • 00:03:51.030 --> 00:03:54.030
  • And this isn't something
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:54.230
  • I've really ever heard too many
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:56.100
  • people talk about.
  • 00:03:56.100 --> 00:03:57.080
  • I always hear people saying,
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:03:59.050
  • you know, faith is important,
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:00.210
  • we need to have faith, just
  • 00:04:00.210 --> 00:04:02.080
  • believe, all that kind of stuff.
  • 00:04:02.080 --> 00:04:03.170
  • But I want to talk about why
  • 00:04:03.170 --> 00:04:05.100
  • it's so hard, right, and why it
  • 00:04:05.100 --> 00:04:07.270
  • means so much to God.
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:10.040
  • And so it's--and I wanted to do
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:13.090
  • it particularly in this episode
  • 00:04:13.090 --> 00:04:14.240
  • because you've got the Dome of
  • 00:04:14.240 --> 00:04:16.040
  • the Rock, which is, you know,
  • 00:04:16.040 --> 00:04:17.260
  • arguably one of the best things
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:19.290
  • I've ever filmed, where you see
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:21.250
  • God literally doing the
  • 00:04:21.250 --> 00:04:23.210
  • impossible.
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:25.030
  • And we traveled the world
  • 00:04:25.030 --> 00:04:26.210
  • showing this movie, and when
  • 00:04:26.210 --> 00:04:28.090
  • that scene happens, like the
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:30.270
  • place erupts, everybody's
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.100
  • excited, like, "That's my God.
  • 00:04:32.100 --> 00:04:33.210
  • Finally, like, the God of the
  • 00:04:33.210 --> 00:04:35.230
  • impossible that I believe in,
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:37.220
  • I've just seen him do the
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:38.290
  • impossible."
  • 00:04:38.290 --> 00:04:39.230
  • But then when we go to try to,
  • 00:04:39.230 --> 00:04:40.250
  • like, apply that faith and the
  • 00:04:40.250 --> 00:04:43.020
  • God of the impossible to our own
  • 00:04:43.020 --> 00:04:44.150
  • lives, suddenly it's not so
  • 00:04:44.150 --> 00:04:46.290
  • - John Pippo: I don't think
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:50.040
  • faith is a feeling.
  • 00:04:50.040 --> 00:04:51.220
  • I don't think faith is a
  • 00:04:51.220 --> 00:04:52.270
  • substance that you can have more
  • 00:04:52.270 --> 00:04:54.200
  • or less of.
  • 00:04:54.200 --> 00:04:55.270
  • I know Jesus said, "O ye of
  • 00:04:55.270 --> 00:04:57.060
  • little faith," but I don't think
  • 00:04:57.060 --> 00:04:58.140
  • he meant it as a substance, like
  • 00:04:58.140 --> 00:05:00.090
  • there's just a little bit of
  • 00:05:00.090 --> 00:05:01.230
  • water in the glass, so there's
  • 00:05:01.230 --> 00:05:03.090
  • not enough water in the glass.
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.210
  • I don't think it's that, I think
  • 00:05:04.210 --> 00:05:05.160
  • it's an action.
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:07.020
  • And it is a following.
  • 00:05:07.020 --> 00:05:09.230
  • I think that's precisely why
  • 00:05:09.230 --> 00:05:11.160
  • Jesus uses the mustard seed
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:13.140
  • example as a way of saying it's
  • 00:05:13.140 --> 00:05:15.260
  • not about--it's not an amount
  • 00:05:15.260 --> 00:05:17.190
  • kind of thing, it's obedience,
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:20.270
  • it's following.
  • 00:05:20.270 --> 00:05:21.290
  • And the greater the
  • 00:05:21.290 --> 00:05:23.020
  • relationship, the greater the
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:25.030
  • trust.
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:26.180
  • One will more follow the more
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:28.050
  • one becomes intimate with the
  • 00:05:28.050 --> 00:05:30.000
  • Father.
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:31.150
  • - Chad Norris: And I think
  • 00:05:31.150 --> 00:05:32.060
  • what's being brought up here, do
  • 00:05:32.060 --> 00:05:33.180
  • evangelicals really believe God
  • 00:05:33.180 --> 00:05:34.200
  • is our Father?
  • 00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:35.280
  • Because if I'm trying to
  • 00:05:35.280 --> 00:05:36.220
  • exercise faith in a God I don't
  • 00:05:36.220 --> 00:05:37.230
  • know and I'm not intimate with,
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:38.290
  • it's not going to take me very
  • 00:05:38.290 --> 00:05:40.040
  • far.
  • 00:05:40.040 --> 00:05:40.270
  • I believe this is an indictment
  • 00:05:40.270 --> 00:05:42.110
  • on our really unawareness of who
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:45.110
  • he is as Father.
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:47.000
  • If faith is trust, well, who am
  • 00:05:47.000 --> 00:05:49.030
  • I trusting?
  • 00:05:49.030 --> 00:05:50.100
  • If I'm trusting Father, Abba, my
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:53.090
  • intimate daddy, it is easier for
  • 00:05:53.090 --> 00:05:54.220
  • me to put trust into a person
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:57.030
  • I'm intimate with than to this
  • 00:05:57.030 --> 00:05:58.240
  • distant God.
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:02.040
  • And so, I think what we're
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:03.120
  • hitting on here is that all
  • 00:06:03.120 --> 00:06:04.160
  • stems from eternal life, that
  • 00:06:04.160 --> 00:06:05.200
  • John 17:3 says, "This is eternal
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.200
  • life, that they may know you."
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:09.280
  • My faith is only as strong as
  • 00:06:09.280 --> 00:06:11.050
  • what I'm putting faith in.
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.240
  • If I'm putting faith in a
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:13.210
  • distant God I don't understand
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:14.250
  • and I'm not sure about, my faith
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:16.150
  • is going to be, you know, null
  • 00:06:16.150 --> 00:06:18.220
  • - Gary Wilson: When I once did
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:21.160
  • a sermon, John asked me to do a
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.270
  • sermon one time on faith, and I
  • 00:06:22.270 --> 00:06:24.040
  • feel very inadequate at this
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:25.090
  • because I don't think much about
  • 00:06:25.090 --> 00:06:26.180
  • me having great faith, but so he
  • 00:06:26.180 --> 00:06:29.030
  • asked me to do this, so of
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:29.280
  • course I went to the Strong's
  • 00:06:29.280 --> 00:06:30.280
  • Concordance and I looked up
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:31.280
  • faith.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:32.180
  • That's where you start, right?
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:33.280
  • Did you know that in the entire
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:35.020
  • Old Testament only--faith is
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:37.220
  • only mentioned twice?
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:39.100
  • The New Testament, it's all over
  • 00:06:39.100 --> 00:06:40.070
  • the place.
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:41.050
  • But in the Old Testament, we
  • 00:06:41.050 --> 00:06:42.010
  • have faithful, we have words
  • 00:06:42.010 --> 00:06:43.250
  • like that, but the word "faith"
  • 00:06:43.250 --> 00:06:45.210
  • is not even hardly mentioned in
  • 00:06:45.210 --> 00:06:46.290
  • the Old Testament.
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:48.030
  • Yet, when the New Testament
  • 00:06:48.030 --> 00:06:49.050
  • writers write, they talk about
  • 00:06:49.050 --> 00:06:50.270
  • the faith of Abraham and all
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:52.010
  • these kind of things.
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:53.040
  • So, what is faith?
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:54.150
  • Well, in my little brain, faith
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:56.150
  • is simply trust.
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:58.130
  • I mean, maybe it's so much more.
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:06:59.290
  • But to me, faith is just trust.
  • 00:07:00.020 --> 00:07:03.020
  • And the more I know God, the
  • 00:07:03.020 --> 00:07:04.160
  • more I know I can trust him.
  • 00:07:04.160 --> 00:07:06.240
  • And then my faith grows because
  • 00:07:06.240 --> 00:07:08.020
  • he has proved himself over and
  • 00:07:08.020 --> 00:07:09.190
  • - Darren: I was here in Israel,
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:13.160
  • and I needed an ending to my
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:14.170
  • movie.
  • 00:07:14.170 --> 00:07:15.250
  • I had asked God to allow me to
  • 00:07:15.250 --> 00:07:16.240
  • film something impossible,
  • 00:07:16.240 --> 00:07:18.270
  • something that only he could do.
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:21.110
  • The only problem was I didn't
  • 00:07:21.110 --> 00:07:22.050
  • exactly know what I wanted him
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:23.110
  • to do.
  • 00:07:23.110 --> 00:07:24.230
  • My first thought was maybe he'd
  • 00:07:24.230 --> 00:07:25.210
  • let me film a resurrection from
  • 00:07:25.210 --> 00:07:26.250
  • the dead, forgetting that he'd
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:28.020
  • already risen somebody from the
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:29.060
  • dead in Israel 2.000 years ago,
  • 00:07:29.060 --> 00:07:31.180
  • and we don't really need a
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:32.190
  • sequel to that one.
  • 00:07:32.190 --> 00:07:34.070
  • But then I was in this room, and
  • 00:07:34.070 --> 00:07:35.170
  • my friend Todd White was sitting
  • 00:07:35.170 --> 00:07:37.030
  • right over there, and I was
  • 00:07:37.030 --> 00:07:38.100
  • reading a guidebook because we
  • 00:07:38.100 --> 00:07:39.170
  • were heading to Jerusalem the
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:40.230
  • next day.
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:41.200
  • I had 2 days left to film, and I
  • 00:07:41.200 --> 00:07:43.000
  • still had no ending.
  • 00:07:43.000 --> 00:07:44.200
  • I was sitting in this chair when
  • 00:07:44.200 --> 00:07:46.110
  • I came upon a section about the
  • 00:07:46.110 --> 00:07:47.290
  • Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:07:47.290 --> 00:07:50.070
  • So, I asked my friend Gary,
  • 00:07:50.070 --> 00:07:51.110
  • who lives here, to tell me about
  • 00:07:51.110 --> 00:07:52.260
  • - Gary Bayer: Wow.
  • 00:07:55.190 --> 00:07:56.120
  • To begin with, in Jewish
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:57.050
  • understanding, the Dome covers
  • 00:07:57.050 --> 00:07:59.160
  • the rock, or it's a high point
  • 00:07:59.160 --> 00:08:02.120
  • that you remember where David
  • 00:08:02.120 --> 00:08:05.010
  • purchased a winnowing, a high
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:08.260
  • place where they would winnow
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:10.050
  • the wheat and the barley.
  • 00:08:10.050 --> 00:08:11.270
  • And that was the high place.
  • 00:08:11.270 --> 00:08:14.180
  • And they believed that that high
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:16.030
  • place was where Abraham
  • 00:08:16.100 --> 00:08:19.100
  • sacrificed or started to
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:20.190
  • sacrifice Isaac.
  • 00:08:20.190 --> 00:08:22.120
  • And in Jewish understanding,
  • 00:08:22.120 --> 00:08:24.120
  • they also believed that that's
  • 00:08:24.120 --> 00:08:25.240
  • where God fashioned Adam.
  • 00:08:25.240 --> 00:08:28.100
  • So, on that very rock, which
  • 00:08:28.140 --> 00:08:31.140
  • then the temple was built upon,
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:33.070
  • had tremendous history.
  • 00:08:33.070 --> 00:08:35.020
  • It's like the center of the
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:36.190
  • center for Jews.
  • 00:08:36.190 --> 00:08:39.110
  • But in the 600s, when the
  • 00:08:39.110 --> 00:08:41.020
  • Muslims invaded the land, they
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:44.220
  • took over, and it sort of went
  • 00:08:45.000 --> 00:08:48.000
  • into disrepair.
  • 00:08:48.000 --> 00:08:49.180
  • But then they covered that rock
  • 00:08:49.180 --> 00:08:51.180
  • with what you now see, that
  • 00:08:51.210 --> 00:08:54.210
  • structure, and it's probably one
  • 00:08:54.210 --> 00:08:57.060
  • of the oldest surviving
  • 00:08:57.060 --> 00:08:58.170
  • structures.
  • 00:08:58.170 --> 00:08:59.220
  • And that's what's called the
  • 00:08:59.220 --> 00:09:01.040
  • Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:09:01.040 --> 00:09:03.120
  • And it surrounds that dome.
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:05.210
  • And inside, it still is that
  • 00:09:05.210 --> 00:09:07.100
  • ancient spot, which is the
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:09.210
  • center of the center for Jews.
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:11.050
  • But when the Muslims took it
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:12.170
  • over, it became known, that
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:15.160
  • whole platform and that rock
  • 00:09:15.160 --> 00:09:17.090
  • became known as their third
  • 00:09:17.090 --> 00:09:19.050
  • holiest site in the world.
  • 00:09:19.050 --> 00:09:21.270
  • You know, you had Mecca being
  • 00:09:21.270 --> 00:09:24.050
  • first, and then I forget the
  • 00:09:24.050 --> 00:09:26.110
  • other one that's second, both in
  • 00:09:26.110 --> 00:09:27.200
  • Saudi Arabia, and then this
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:29.180
  • being the third.
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:30.120
  • So, you have it being this--the
  • 00:09:30.120 --> 00:09:32.020
  • holiest site for Jews and the
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:34.250
  • third holiest site for Muslims.
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:38.100
  • Now, they will allow, they will
  • 00:09:38.270 --> 00:09:41.270
  • allow non-Jewish to go up there,
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:46.270
  • non-Muslim to go up there only
  • 00:09:46.270 --> 00:09:49.060
  • through a certain gate and only
  • 00:09:49.060 --> 00:09:50.260
  • at certain times.
  • 00:09:50.260 --> 00:09:52.150
  • So, they didn't allow anybody up
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:54.100
  • there except to go on the Temple
  • 00:09:54.100 --> 00:09:56.100
  • Mount, but not to go inside the
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:57.280
  • - Darren: And that was
  • 00:10:00.160 --> 00:10:01.010
  • after 2000?
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:01.160
  • - Gary Bayer: After 2000.
  • 00:10:01.160 --> 00:10:03.060
  • - Darren: All right, so let's
  • 00:10:03.060 --> 00:10:04.020
  • go back in time 5 years.
  • 00:10:04.020 --> 00:10:04.250
  • I'm here with Todd White.
  • 00:10:05.150 --> 00:10:08.150
  • - Gary Bayer: Yeah.
  • 00:10:08.150 --> 00:10:09.090
  • - Darren: Sitting in your
  • 00:10:09.090 --> 00:10:10.180
  • living room.
  • 00:10:10.180 --> 00:10:11.150
  • - Gary Bayer: Yeah.
  • 00:10:11.150 --> 00:10:12.130
  • Well, I remember when--I
  • 00:10:12.130 --> 00:10:14.130
  • remember when you first said,
  • 00:10:14.130 --> 00:10:17.020
  • "Well, tell me about the Dome of
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:18.080
  • the Rock," and so, we told you a
  • 00:10:18.080 --> 00:10:20.250
  • little bit of history, and then
  • 00:10:20.250 --> 00:10:22.200
  • you said, "We want to go in
  • 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:24.180
  • there."
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:26.060
  • I kind of froze, thinking, "You
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:28.290
  • don't know what you're asking,"
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:31.020
  • because you can't go in there.
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:33.090
  • I mean, it's Ramadan for one
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:35.040
  • thing, and they really shut down
  • 00:10:35.040 --> 00:10:37.080
  • people that are non-Muslim from
  • 00:10:37.220 --> 00:10:40.220
  • going up on the Temple Mount
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:42.010
  • except for some very special
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:43.250
  • things during Ramadan because
  • 00:10:43.250 --> 00:10:45.210
  • they don't want to risk a riot.
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:48.080
  • And it's impossible, number one,
  • 00:10:50.010 --> 00:10:53.010
  • to get on the Temple Mount, but
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:54.030
  • it's really impossible to get
  • 00:10:54.030 --> 00:10:55.220
  • into the Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:10:55.220 --> 00:10:58.080
  • And so, when you said, "We want
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:11:00.100
  • to get into the Dome of the
  • 00:11:00.100 --> 00:11:02.180
  • Rock," I think I was very quick
  • 00:11:02.180 --> 00:11:04.200
  • to say, as well as my wife,
  • 00:11:04.200 --> 00:11:07.160
  • "Oh, that's impossible.
  • 00:11:07.160 --> 00:11:09.090
  • You can't do that."
  • 00:11:09.090 --> 00:11:10.220
  • And we were trying to be nice to
  • 00:11:10.220 --> 00:11:11.220
  • you because you didn't know, you
  • 00:11:11.230 --> 00:11:14.230
  • didn't know what you were asking
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:15.290
  • from--you know, I mean, we have
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:19.130
  • a tiny apartment there, as you
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:21.080
  • know, real close.
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:23.080
  • And that's our hood, and we know
  • 00:11:23.080 --> 00:11:25.180
  • that you can't do that.
  • 00:11:25.180 --> 00:11:28.030
  • So, when you asked about that,
  • 00:11:28.030 --> 00:11:30.260
  • we said,
  • 00:11:30.260 --> 00:11:31.120
  • "No, you can't do that."
  • 00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:33.030
  • And we thought that you'd listen
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:35.200
  • to us and that you had just
  • 00:11:35.200 --> 00:11:37.150
  • decided, "No, we won't do that."
  • 00:11:37.230 --> 00:11:40.230
  • But no, you were determined, and
  • 00:11:41.250 --> 00:11:44.250
  • I remember when you all left.
  • 00:11:46.050 --> 00:11:49.050
  • Do you want me to tell that part
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:50.000
  • of the story?
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:50.160
  • - Darren: Tell it all,
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:51.010
  • tell it all.
  • 00:11:51.010 --> 00:11:51.170
  • - Gary Bayer: And when you all
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:52.080
  • left, and Cindy and I both were
  • 00:11:52.080 --> 00:11:54.270
  • going, "Those guys are nuts.
  • 00:11:55.090 --> 00:11:58.090
  • They're just like--I mean, they
  • 00:11:58.090 --> 00:12:00.020
  • can't do what they think they're
  • 00:12:00.020 --> 00:12:01.210
  • going to do.
  • 00:12:01.210 --> 00:12:02.080
  • They don't understand the
  • 00:12:02.080 --> 00:12:03.070
  • dynamics, and they don't

  • understand how that's not just a
  • 00:12:05.050 --> 00:12:08.050
  • current events tension place.
  • 00:12:09.260 --> 00:12:12.260
  • It's millennia-old tension
  • 00:12:12.260 --> 00:12:15.020
  • spot."
  • 00:12:15.020 --> 00:12:16.180
  • And it's a place that God has
  • 00:12:16.180 --> 00:12:19.060
  • put his mark on.
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:22.180
  • And people are vying for that
  • 00:12:22.180 --> 00:12:24.140
  • spot.
  • 00:12:24.140 --> 00:12:26.170
  • It's like you can't ask for
  • 00:12:26.170 --> 00:12:27.290
  • the--it's the highest spiritual,
  • 00:12:27.290 --> 00:12:30.000
  • spiritual/physical real estate
  • 00:12:30.000 --> 00:12:32.170
  • - Darren: When Gary said
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:35.270
  • it was impossible,
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:36.200
  • I knew we had to try.
  • 00:12:36.200 --> 00:12:38.060
  • It was really my only option.
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:39.230
  • So, the next morning, I set out
  • 00:12:39.230 --> 00:12:40.180
  • to visit this city, Jerusalem,
  • 00:12:40.180 --> 00:12:42.170
  • for the very first time.
  • 00:12:42.170 --> 00:12:44.040
  • I didn't know a soul here,
  • 00:12:44.040 --> 00:12:45.180
  • I only had 2 days left.
  • 00:12:45.180 --> 00:12:47.040
  • But for the first time in my
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:48.020
  • life, I actually believed God
  • 00:12:48.020 --> 00:12:49.160
  • not only could, but actually
  • 00:12:49.160 --> 00:12:51.130
  • would do the impossible for me.
  • 00:12:51.130 --> 00:12:53.210
  • I wanted him to get little
  • 00:12:53.210 --> 00:12:54.240
  • old me into there.
  • 00:12:54.250 --> 00:12:57.250
  • And true to form,
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.270
  • - Darren: When we headed to
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:03.200
  • Jerusalem, I asked God to do
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:05.040
  • something impossible, something
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:07.060
  • that only he could do: get me
  • 00:13:07.250 --> 00:13:10.250
  • into the Dome of the Rock, the
  • 00:13:10.270 --> 00:13:13.270
  • second holiest site in Islam,
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:16.020
  • and a mosque that has been
  • 00:13:16.020 --> 00:13:17.040
  • totally off-limits to
  • 00:13:17.040 --> 00:13:18.080
  • non-Muslims since 2003.
  • 00:13:19.100 --> 00:13:22.100
  • We had no idea how to do this.
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:24.080
  • We had no contacts, and God
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:25.280
  • only had 24 hours
  • 00:13:25.280 --> 00:13:27.180
  • My main reason for wanting to go
  • 00:13:30.170 --> 00:13:31.080
  • was simply for the world to see
  • 00:13:31.080 --> 00:13:33.030
  • for themselves the God of the
  • 00:13:33.030 --> 00:13:34.190
  • impossible.
  • 00:13:34.190 --> 00:13:36.200
  • We arrived in Jerusalem and
  • 00:13:36.200 --> 00:13:37.230
  • immediately hit the streets,
  • 00:13:37.230 --> 00:13:39.090
  • looking for people to love.
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:41.170
  • The first person we met was this
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:42.240
  • guy, who was walking with a
  • 00:13:42.240 --> 00:13:44.160
  • pretty severe limp.
  • 00:13:44.160 --> 00:13:46.180
  • - Todd: What is your name?
  • 00:13:49.020 --> 00:13:50.020

  • just for a minute.
  • 00:13:58.170 --> 00:14:01.190
  • Sit back the whole way with your

  • - Shahin: I'm dreaming or what?
  • 00:15:20.050 --> 00:15:22.120
  • - Todd: No, you're not

  • I'm a Muslim.
  • 00:16:23.010 --> 00:16:25.120
  • No, Jesus is the Son of God.
  • 00:16:25.120 --> 00:16:28.050
  • - Todd: Look at him walking.
  • 00:16:37.250 --> 00:16:38.130
  • Look at him walking down the
  • 00:16:38.130 --> 00:16:39.110
  • steps right now.
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:42.080
  • No pain at all.
  • 00:16:43.020 --> 00:16:46.020
  • Did you see him walking when he
  • 00:16:46.020 --> 00:16:46.270
  • was--he was like this, he was
  • 00:16:46.270 --> 00:16:48.240
  • You see how fast--did you see
  • 00:16:55.220 --> 00:16:56.180
  • him walking when he was coming
  • 00:16:56.180 --> 00:16:57.140
  • up?
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:59.010
  • He was like--he was walking like
  • 00:16:59.010 --> 00:16:59.280
  • this.
  • 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:03.240
  • He said, "Am I dreaming?

  • - Darren: Well, that was a good
  • 00:17:21.060 --> 00:17:21.270
  • start.
  • 00:17:21.270 --> 00:17:23.140
  • So, we kept going, and we
  • 00:17:23.140 --> 00:17:24.280
  • entered the Muslim Quarter of
  • 00:17:24.280 --> 00:17:26.040
  • old Jerusalem, and Todd began
  • 00:17:26.040 --> 00:17:28.010
  • praying for people, and they
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:29.180
  • started to get healed left and
  • 00:17:29.180 --> 00:17:30.290
  • right.
  • 00:17:30.290 --> 00:17:32.190
  • So, they brought others up to
  • 00:17:32.190 --> 00:17:33.170
  • - Todd: I want to be known as
  • 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:38.090
  • somebody that loves, somebody
  • 00:17:38.090 --> 00:17:39.070
  • that's passionate.
  • 00:17:39.070 --> 00:17:40.220
  • It's about compassion, it's
  • 00:17:40.220 --> 00:17:41.200
  • about the passionate heart of
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:42.210
  • God for people.
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:44.000
  • We got to stop trying to
  • 00:17:44.000 --> 00:17:44.250
  • manipulate people, maneuver them
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:45.250
  • to be praying our prayer, and
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:47.230
  • start to just become love, not
  • 00:17:47.230 --> 00:17:49.080
  • pointing out the trash, but
  • 00:17:49.080 --> 00:17:50.230
  • pointing out the goodness that
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:52.040
  • people are.
  • 00:17:52.040 --> 00:17:53.100
  • Come on, we've been given a
  • 00:17:53.100 --> 00:17:54.030
  • ministry of reconciliation, not
  • 00:17:54.030 --> 00:17:55.290
  • imputing the world's trespasses
  • 00:17:55.290 --> 00:17:57.140
  • against them, come on, but
  • 00:17:57.140 --> 00:17:59.090
  • reconciling people back to the
  • 00:17:59.090 --> 00:18:00.280
  • Father.
  • 00:18:00.280 --> 00:18:01.270
  • That's the ministry that we
  • 00:18:01.270 --> 00:18:02.280
  • have.
  • 00:18:02.280 --> 00:18:03.180
  • If people can't see Christ in

  • you, they don't want what you
  • 00:18:04.270 --> 00:18:06.120
  • - Darren: Word was spreading in
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:09.060
  • the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem.
  • 00:18:09.060 --> 00:18:11.030
  • And for nearly an hour,
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:12.080
  • we prayed for Muslims.
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:14.130
  • Towards the end, a man
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:15.200
  • - Darren: You're not going to
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:21.250
  • make it to the bottom of the
  • 00:18:21.250 --> 00:18:22.200

  • 00:18:22.200 --> 00:18:24.140
  • Hello, hello, how are you?

  • to do something,
  • 00:19:47.240 --> 00:19:49.080

  • 00:20:06.110 --> 00:20:06.290
  • - Todd: Very sick.
  • 00:20:06.290 --> 00:20:08.020
  • It's his chest, he has a heart
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:09.080
  • problem, and his lungs.
  • 00:20:09.080 --> 00:20:11.270
  • That's what I heard out there,
  • 00:20:11.270 --> 00:20:13.110
  • chest and lungs.
  • 00:20:13.110 --> 00:20:14.230
  • I must--I must pray for him to

  • be healed.
  • 00:20:16.030 --> 00:20:17.090
  • Is it cancer?
  • 00:20:17.090 --> 00:20:19.150
  • - male: No, it's not cancer.
  • 00:20:19.150 --> 00:20:20.180
  • - Todd: What is it?
  • 00:20:20.180 --> 00:20:21.070
  • - male: The doctor told me, you
  • 00:20:21.070 --> 00:20:22.020
  • know, his heart is not working,
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:23.210
  • like 20%.
  • 00:20:23.210 --> 00:20:24.290
  • - Todd: Yes.
  • 00:20:24.290 --> 00:20:25.230
  • - male: And he can't make the
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:26.110
  • operation, and he is also
  • 00:20:26.110 --> 00:20:27.160
  • Christian.
  • 00:20:27.160 --> 00:20:28.240
  • - Todd: Yes.
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:29.210
  • - male: He's my father-in-law.
  • 00:20:29.210 --> 00:20:31.210
  • - Todd: Yes.
  • 00:20:31.210 --> 00:20:33.030
  • I want to pray.
  • 00:20:33.030 --> 00:20:34.090
  • He understand?
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:35.100
  • - male: He doesn't understand,
  • 00:20:35.100 --> 00:20:36.050
  • we trust you.
  • 00:20:36.050 --> 00:20:37.100
  • - Todd: That's okay, all right.
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:38.280
  • - Darren: So, Todd prayed,
  • 00:20:38.280 --> 00:20:40.010
  • and then he asked how the man
  • 00:20:40.010 --> 00:20:41.050
  • - male:
  • 00:20:43.230 --> 00:20:44.190
  • [speaking in foreign language]
  • 00:20:46.070 --> 00:20:49.070
  • - male: He said he still have,
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:52.280
  • like, a little bit pain
  • 00:20:52.280 --> 00:20:53.200
  • left side.
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:54.130
  • - Todd: A little bit of pain?
  • 00:20:54.130 --> 00:20:55.060
  • Point to pain, push, tell him to
  • 00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:56.020
  • touch it.
  • 00:21:00.270 --> 00:21:03.270
  • Father, I thank you for
  • 00:21:16.060 --> 00:21:16.270
  • wholeness in Jesus' name right
  • 00:21:16.270 --> 00:21:18.130
  • No more pain, no more heart
  • 00:21:26.010 --> 00:21:27.140
  • problems, wholeness in Jesus'
  • 00:21:27.140 --> 00:21:29.140
  • Ask, see?
  • 00:21:34.070 --> 00:21:37.070
  • It's good?
  • 00:21:37.070 --> 00:21:38.020
  • Good.
  • 00:21:38.020 --> 00:21:40.050
  • I love you.
  • 00:21:40.050 --> 00:21:41.090
  • Can he walk?
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:43.240
  • He can walk, is he good on
  • 00:21:43.240 --> 00:21:44.240
  • walking, he's okay walking?
  • 00:21:49.090 --> 00:21:52.090
  • Ask him if his ankles feel
  • 00:21:52.090 --> 00:21:52.290
  • - male:
  • 00:21:56.010 --> 00:21:56.170
  • - male: Feel better.
  • 00:22:03.160 --> 00:22:04.260
  • - Darren: As we were leaving,
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:07.250
  • I asked him if he knew
  • 00:22:07.250 --> 00:22:08.180
  • of any way we could get into
  • 00:22:08.180 --> 00:22:09.180
  • the Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:22:09.180 --> 00:22:11.140
  • He said it was impossible.
  • 00:22:11.140 --> 00:22:13.050
  • I said, "Yeah, that's what
  • 00:22:13.050 --> 00:22:14.190
  • everyone keeps telling me.
  • 00:22:14.190 --> 00:22:16.130
  • But how can I get in?"
  • 00:22:16.130 --> 00:22:18.220
  • Then he looked at me, studied
  • 00:22:18.220 --> 00:22:20.030
  • me, and said, "We blessed him,
  • 00:22:20.050 --> 00:22:23.050
  • now he wants to bless us."
  • 00:22:23.050 --> 00:22:25.290
  • His best friend, he said, knows
  • 00:22:25.290 --> 00:22:27.080
  • everyone who works at the Dome.
  • 00:22:27.080 --> 00:22:29.210
  • If there was one person in
  • 00:22:29.210 --> 00:22:30.220
  • Jerusalem who might be able to
  • 00:22:30.220 --> 00:22:32.030
  • get us in, it was this guy.
  • 00:22:32.030 --> 00:22:34.280
  • Would we like to meet him?
  • 00:22:34.280 --> 00:22:36.210
  • Yes, please.
  • 00:22:36.210 --> 00:22:38.120
  • "Then let's go."
  • 00:22:38.120 --> 00:22:40.180
  • So, we walked for 20 minutes
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:42.020
  • through the winding streets of
  • 00:22:42.020 --> 00:22:43.040
  • old Jerusalem until we came to a
  • 00:22:43.040 --> 00:22:44.210
  • courtyard, and this man called
  • 00:22:44.210 --> 00:22:47.050
  • out to his friend.
  • 00:22:47.050 --> 00:22:49.070
  • And the God of the impossible
  • 00:22:49.070 --> 00:22:50.240
  • - Darren: So, we sat with him,
  • 00:23:18.210 --> 00:23:20.010
  • told him what we wanted to do,
  • 00:23:20.010 --> 00:23:21.260
  • and he told us to be back
  • 00:23:21.260 --> 00:23:23.000
  • tomorrow at 10.
  • 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:25.020
  • The next morning, we met outside
  • 00:23:25.020 --> 00:23:26.050
  • the gate, and made our way to
  • 00:23:26.050 --> 00:23:27.270
  • the Dome.
  • 00:23:27.270 --> 00:23:30.020
  • As I stood outside this
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:31.000
  • building, which once was the
  • 00:23:31.000 --> 00:23:32.140
  • spot where Abraham almost
  • 00:23:32.140 --> 00:23:33.240
  • sacrificed his son Isaac, where
  • 00:23:33.240 --> 00:23:36.100
  • the Ark of the Covenant used to
  • 00:23:36.100 --> 00:23:37.170
  • reside, and where Muslims
  • 00:23:37.170 --> 00:23:39.190
  • believed Muhammad ascended into
  • 00:23:39.190 --> 00:23:41.000
  • heaven, I realized that we were
  • 00:23:41.000 --> 00:23:43.060
  • about to do the impossible
  • 00:23:43.060 --> 00:23:45.080
  • because God had made it
  • 00:23:45.080 --> 00:23:46.160
  • possible.
  • 00:23:46.160 --> 00:23:48.200
  • We were not here by force, we
  • 00:23:48.200 --> 00:23:50.140
  • were here through simple acts of
  • 00:23:50.140 --> 00:23:52.010
  • love.
  • 00:23:52.010 --> 00:23:54.240
  • So, we went in, during the call
  • 00:23:54.240 --> 00:23:56.180
  • to prayer no less.
  • 00:23:56.180 --> 00:23:58.160
  • And I realized that God had done
  • 00:23:58.160 --> 00:24:00.020
  • the impossible to teach me, all
  • 00:24:00.020 --> 00:24:02.060
  • of us, a lesson.
  • 00:24:02.060 --> 00:24:05.030
  • For God, this was easy.
  • 00:24:05.030 --> 00:24:07.280
  • The most impossible thing is
  • 00:24:07.280 --> 00:24:09.230
  • that we, with our dirty faces
  • 00:24:09.230 --> 00:24:11.150
  • and broken hearts, could have a
  • 00:24:11.150 --> 00:24:13.110
  • love affair with the God of the
  • 00:24:13.110 --> 00:24:14.190
  • universe, no matter who we are
  • 00:24:14.190 --> 00:24:16.120
  • or what we've done.
  • 00:24:16.120 --> 00:24:19.100
  • This was where the Ark of the
  • 00:24:19.100 --> 00:24:20.120
  • Covenant resided, the Holy of
  • 00:24:20.120 --> 00:24:22.010
  • Holies, and it was in this very
  • 00:24:22.010 --> 00:24:24.090
  • spot that God tore the veil that
  • 00:24:24.090 --> 00:24:26.120
  • kept us from his heart the
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:28.000
  • moment Jesus died.
  • 00:24:28.020 --> 00:24:31.020
  • And then, amazingly, our guide
  • 00:24:31.020 --> 00:24:33.180
  • turned to us and asked if we'd
  • 00:24:33.180 --> 00:24:35.000
  • like to go into the well of
  • 00:24:35.000 --> 00:24:36.040
  • souls.
  • 00:24:36.040 --> 00:24:38.100
  • And we entered into the
  • 00:24:38.100 --> 00:24:39.080
  • foundation of the Holy of
  • 00:24:39.080 --> 00:24:40.140
  • Holies, where God's presence
  • 00:24:40.140 --> 00:24:42.120
  • used to reside, and the light of
  • 00:24:42.120 --> 00:24:44.190
  • the world was lifted up in the

  • the doors easily for us.
  • 00:25:56.100 --> 00:25:58.110
  • You know, you saw hundreds
  • 00:25:58.110 --> 00:26:00.220
  • were there in the yard.
  • 00:26:00.290 --> 00:26:03.290
  • And even if they pay thousands
  • 00:26:03.290 --> 00:26:06.030
  • of dollars, they won't
  • 00:26:06.030 --> 00:26:07.140
  • get inside, you know?
  • 00:26:07.140 --> 00:26:10.040
  • But God helped us--
  • 00:26:10.040 --> 00:26:11.210
  • - Philip Mantofa: Don't boast
  • 00:26:16.200 --> 00:26:17.080
  • about having great faith.
  • 00:26:17.080 --> 00:26:18.290
  • Don't judge other faiths.
  • 00:26:18.290 --> 00:26:21.130
  • I believe Jesus is the only way,
  • 00:26:21.130 --> 00:26:23.020
  • the truth, and the life.
  • 00:26:23.020 --> 00:26:24.180
  • I will not play, I will not
  • 00:26:24.180 --> 00:26:26.090
  • try to be politically correct.
  • 00:26:26.090 --> 00:26:27.230
  • Simple, the line has been drawn
  • 00:26:27.230 --> 00:26:30.120
  • in the sand.
  • 00:26:30.120 --> 00:26:31.280
  • Jesus is the only way.
  • 00:26:31.280 --> 00:26:33.060
  • I'm ready to die
  • 00:26:33.060 --> 00:26:34.040
  • for this statement.
  • 00:26:34.040 --> 00:26:36.140
  • But then how you convey the way?
  • 00:26:36.140 --> 00:26:39.010
  • - Todd: These Muslims were
  • 00:26:41.170 --> 00:26:42.080
  • radically touched in God,
  • 00:26:42.080 --> 00:26:43.050
  • completely rocked.
  • 00:26:43.050 --> 00:26:44.040
  • I believe that the Holy Ghost is
  • 00:26:44.040 --> 00:26:45.190
  • a big boy, and he's well able to
  • 00:26:45.190 --> 00:26:47.230
  • accomplish the task, man.
  • 00:26:47.230 --> 00:26:49.260
  • Anybody can do this thing.
  • 00:26:49.260 --> 00:26:51.160
  • You know, I'm 7 years old in
  • 00:26:51.160 --> 00:26:52.140
  • God.
  • 00:26:52.140 --> 00:26:53.020
  • All I know is that Jesus said,
  • 00:26:53.020 --> 00:26:54.200
  • "You're either for me or against
  • 00:26:54.200 --> 00:26:56.030
  • - Doug Addison: I think we need
  • 00:26:58.080 --> 00:26:59.020
  • to be the light of the world,
  • 00:26:59.020 --> 00:27:00.210
  • step back out there,
  • 00:27:00.210 --> 00:27:01.170
  • not in a rude way,
  • 00:27:01.170 --> 00:27:03.080
  • Ask God to use you wherever you
  • 00:27:05.190 --> 00:27:06.220
  • - Shahin: And I don't know what
  • 00:27:10.040 --> 00:27:11.050
  • gave me to help you to get
  • 00:27:11.050 --> 00:27:13.220
  • inside, I don't know why.
  • 00:27:13.220 --> 00:27:16.000
  • You know, I don't know why.
  • 00:27:16.000 --> 00:27:17.200
  • Something told me I have to--I
  • 00:27:18.230 --> 00:27:21.230
  • have to help you.
  • 00:27:21.230 --> 00:27:23.110
  • You know, I felt that on your
  • 00:27:23.110 --> 00:27:26.020
  • faces something special,
  • 00:27:26.020 --> 00:27:27.060
  • you know?
  • 00:27:27.060 --> 00:27:28.160
  • Something attractive, you know,
  • 00:27:28.160 --> 00:27:30.120
  • something attractive that gives
  • 00:27:30.120 --> 00:27:32.170
  • - Gary Bayer: Well, I was
  • 00:27:39.250 --> 00:27:41.050
  • shocked that--obviously, I was
  • 00:27:41.050 --> 00:27:42.210
  • shocked that you--one, you got
  • 00:27:42.210 --> 00:27:44.140
  • onto the Temple Mount given it
  • 00:27:44.140 --> 00:27:45.250
  • was Ramadan.
  • 00:27:45.250 --> 00:27:47.010
  • Two, that you got into
  • 00:27:47.010 --> 00:27:49.010
  • the Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:27:49.010 --> 00:27:50.060
  • And three, that you went down
  • 00:27:50.060 --> 00:27:52.160
  • under to the--to the cave that's
  • 00:27:52.160 --> 00:27:55.000
  • down under the Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:27:55.000 --> 00:27:57.100
  • It's a small opening, but that's
  • 00:27:57.100 --> 00:27:59.130
  • considered the most sacred spot
  • 00:28:00.120 --> 00:28:03.120
  • of the Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:28:03.120 --> 00:28:06.020
  • And that's where you ended up,
  • 00:28:06.020 --> 00:28:08.210
  • and that was like a triple
  • 00:28:09.000 --> 00:28:12.000
  • miracle, a triple miracle.
  • 00:28:12.060 --> 00:28:15.060
  • And the fact that you would
  • 00:28:15.060 --> 00:28:16.130
  • go down there, that they
  • 00:28:16.130 --> 00:28:17.280
  • would allow you down there,
  • 00:28:18.050 --> 00:28:21.050
  • and that you were
  • 00:28:21.050 --> 00:28:21.270
  • able to pray down there.
  • 00:28:21.270 --> 00:28:23.270
  • Because even to pray on the
  • 00:28:23.270 --> 00:28:25.040
  • Temple Mount as a non-Muslim is
  • 00:28:25.110 --> 00:28:28.110
  • a no-no.
  • 00:28:28.110 --> 00:28:30.070
  • If they see you, they'll come
  • 00:28:30.070 --> 00:28:31.080
  • after you.
  • 00:28:31.140 --> 00:28:34.140
  • But you not only were on the
  • 00:28:34.140 --> 00:28:35.250
  • Temple Mount, but into
  • 00:28:35.250 --> 00:28:36.270
  • the Dome of the Rock, and down
  • 00:28:36.270 --> 00:28:38.260
  • into the most holy of spots
  • 00:28:38.260 --> 00:28:40.210
  • in the Dome of the Rock.
  • 00:28:40.210 --> 00:28:42.150
  • And you were able to pray.
  • 00:28:42.150 --> 00:28:44.260
  • That's amazing.
  • 00:28:44.260 --> 00:28:46.270
  • - Darren: The world is filled
  • 00:28:51.100 --> 00:28:52.070
  • with people praying to God,
  • 00:28:52.070 --> 00:28:53.250
  • asking him to help them.
  • 00:28:53.250 --> 00:28:55.240
  • We are desperate for him
  • 00:28:55.240 --> 00:28:57.000
  • to hear us, to acknowledge us,
  • 00:28:57.000 --> 00:28:59.090
  • and to be pleased with us.
  • 00:28:59.090 --> 00:29:01.090
  • But Hebrews 11:6 says that it is
  • 00:29:01.090 --> 00:29:03.130
  • impossible to please God
  • 00:29:03.130 --> 00:29:05.020
  • without faith.
  • 00:29:05.020 --> 00:29:06.180
  • For whatever reason, our faith
  • 00:29:06.180 --> 00:29:07.280
  • in him moves his heart.
  • 00:29:07.280 --> 00:29:10.210
  • I think he puts such a premium
  • 00:29:10.210 --> 00:29:12.040
  • on faith precisely because he
  • 00:29:12.040 --> 00:29:13.160
  • knows how difficult true faith
  • 00:29:13.160 --> 00:29:15.170
  • really is for us.
  • 00:29:15.170 --> 00:29:17.100
  • But when we come to him with
  • 00:29:17.100 --> 00:29:18.150
  • humble, childlike faith, quite
  • 00:29:18.150 --> 00:29:20.190
  • often that is when he shows the
  • 00:29:20.190 --> 00:29:22.260
  • whole world that he truly is the
  • 00:29:22.260 --> 00:29:25.150
