  • - AND WELCOME TO THE WATCHMAN.
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:22.270
  • 2019 IS NOW IN THE HISTORY BOOKS
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:26.090
  • AND IT WAS A BANNER YEAR
  • 00:01:26.110 --> 00:01:28.100
  • FOR CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:28.120 --> 00:01:30.100
  • WE STARTED THE YEAR WITH FIVE MILLION MEMBERS,
  • 00:01:30.120 --> 00:01:33.030
  • AND ENDED WITH OVER SEVEN MILLION.
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:35.160
  • FOLKS, THAT'S AN INCREASE OF OVER TWO MILLION MEMBERS
  • 00:01:35.180 --> 00:01:39.080
  • IN JUST ONE YEAR, AND IT'S NO COINCIDENCE.
  • 00:01:39.100 --> 00:01:43.010
  • WITH THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL AND AMERICA ON THE MARCH,
  • 00:01:43.030 --> 00:01:46.130
  • GOD ALMIGHTY IS RAISING CUFI UP FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
  • 00:01:46.150 --> 00:01:51.180
  • LETS START WITH IRAN.
  • 00:01:51.200 --> 00:01:53.190
  • IN 2019 THE IRANIAN REGIME GREW DANGEROUSLY BOLD
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:57.280
  • IN ITS CONFRONTATION WITH ISRAEL AND THE WEST.
  • 00:01:58.000 --> 00:02:01.130
  • FROM SHOOTING DOWN A US DRONE,
  • 00:02:01.150 --> 00:02:03.250
  • TO ATTACKING SHIPPING IN THE PERSIAN GULF,
  • 00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:06.100
  • TO PLOTTING ATTACKS AGAINST ISRAEL FROM INSIDE SYRIA,
  • 00:02:06.120 --> 00:02:10.160
  • IRAN'S MULLAH'S APPEAR HELL-BENT
  • 00:02:10.180 --> 00:02:13.100
  • ON PUSHING THE MIDDLE EAST INTO WAR.
  • 00:02:13.120 --> 00:02:16.160
  • LOOK NO FURTHER THAN IRAN'S DRONE AND MISSILE ATTACK
  • 00:02:16.180 --> 00:02:20.030
  • ON A MAJOR SAUDI OIL REFINERY IN SEPTEMBER.
  • 00:02:20.050 --> 00:02:23.130
  • THAT ATTACK WAS UNPRECEDENTED IN ITS SIZE,
  • 00:02:23.150 --> 00:02:27.030
  • SCALE AND CHAOTIC AMBITION.
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:29.170
  • AT THE TIME IT KNOCKED OUT ABOUT 5%
  • 00:02:29.190 --> 00:02:32.130
  • OF THE WORLDS OIL PRODUCTION,
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:34.150
  • BUT THE IRANIANS HAVE MUCH BIGGER PLANS.
  • 00:02:34.170 --> 00:02:37.220
  • THEY NOW POSSESS THE LARGEST BALLISTIC MISSILE STOCKPILE
  • 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:41.210
  • IN THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST, INCLUDING MISSILES
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:44.180
  • THAT COULD ONE DAY BE MOUNTED WITH A NUCLEAR WEAPON.
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:48.250
  • ALL OF THIS WHILE CONTINUING TO FUND AND ARM
  • 00:02:48.270 --> 00:02:52.160
  • HEZBOLLAH, HAMAS, AND OTHER TERRORIST PROXIES.
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:56.100
  • NOW, HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.200
  • AMERICA, ISRAEL, AND IRAN'S NEIGHBORS ARE FIGHTING BACK.
  • 00:02:58.220 --> 00:03:02.280
  • IN 2019 THE UNITED STATES HIT THE IRANIAN REGIME HARD
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:07.110
  • WITH STRONG ECONOMIC SANCTIONS,
  • 00:03:07.130 --> 00:03:09.230
  • AND PRESIDENT TRUMP RECOGNIZED ISRAEL'S SOVEREIGNTY
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:13.140
  • OVER THE GOLAN HEIGHTS.
  • 00:03:13.160 --> 00:03:15.100
  • NOW THE GOLAN IS THE STRATEGIC MOUNTAINOUS REGION
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:18.150
  • WHERE IRAN WOULD LOVE TO GAIN A FOOTHOLD TO ATTACK ISRAEL.
  • 00:03:18.170 --> 00:03:23.140
  • AT THE SAME TIME THE IRANIAN PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN
  • 00:03:23.160 --> 00:03:26.150
  • TO THE STREETS IN LARGE NUMBERS TO PROTEST THE REGIME.
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:30.220
  • SIMILAR PROTESTS HAVE ALSO BROKEN OUT IN LEBANON AND IRAQ
  • 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:35.020
  • WHERE PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH IRANIAN MEDDLING
  • 00:03:35.040 --> 00:03:38.170
  • IN THEIR COUNTRIES' AFFAIRS.
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:40.160
  • IN 2019 THE WATCHMAN TEAM WAS THERE
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:43.080
  • EVERY STEP OF THE WAY TO BRING YOU THE INSIDE
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:46.210
  • ON THE GROUND STORY ON THE RISE OF IRAN.
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:50.050
  • STARTING WITH AN EXCLUSIVE VISIT TO A PLACE WHERE
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:53.190
  • FEW AMERICANS HAVE SET FOOT SINCE 1979.
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:57.060
  • THE IRAN/IRAQ BORDER.
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:04:00.040
  • TAKE A LOOK.
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:00.280
  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:14.100
  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:04:14.100 --> 00:04:21.240
  • - DON, THIS IS AMAZING.
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:23.260
  • THIS KURDISH PESHMERGA POST IS LITERALLY A CASTLE
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:28.160
  • ON THE IRANIAN BORDER.
  • 00:04:28.180 --> 00:04:29.290
  • WHO KNOWS HOW OLD THIS PLACE IS.
  • 00:04:30.010 --> 00:04:33.100
  • HERE WE ARE, ASCENDING TO THE TOP,
  • 00:04:33.120 --> 00:04:36.120

  • AS WE SPEAK.
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:58.240
  • THE IRANIAN REVOLUTIONARY GUARD CORPS,
  • 00:04:58.260 --> 00:05:00.110
  • WHICH BY THE WAY HAS BEEN DESIGNATED BY
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:02.100
  • THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:05:02.120 --> 00:05:05.120
  • OFFICIALLY DESIGNATED BY THE STATE DEPARTMENT
  • 00:05:05.140 --> 00:05:07.070
  • AND RIGHTFULLY SO.
  • 00:05:07.090 --> 00:05:09.030
  • THE PESHMERGA SOLDIERS ARE HERE AT THIS POST.
  • 00:05:09.050 --> 00:05:12.160
  • I WOULD SAY THIS IS THE EDGE OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:15.040
  • ON THE IRAN BORDER, WHERE WE HAVE THE WORLD'S
  • 00:05:15.060 --> 00:05:16.270
  • LEADING SPONSOR OF TERROR ON THE OTHER SIDE
  • 00:05:16.290 --> 00:05:19.080
  • WE'RE STARING AT RIGHT NOW, AND AGAIN THESE IRGC POSITIONS
  • 00:05:19.100 --> 00:05:22.120
  • ALL AROUND US HERE ON THE MOUNTAINS OF IRAN.
  • 00:05:22.140 --> 00:05:25.010
  • - RIGHT OVER MY SHOULDER THERE IS WHERE
  • 00:05:25.030 --> 00:05:26.290
  • THE IRAN-BACKED TERRORIST ARMY HEZBOLLAH DUG
  • 00:05:27.010 --> 00:05:30.220
  • ONE OF A NETWORK OF TERROR TUNNELS RIGHT HERE ALONG
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:33.280
  • THE ISRAEL/LEBANON BORDER WITH THE INTENTION
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:36.290
  • OF INVADING NORTHERN ISRAEL, OF INVADING
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:39.190
  • THE TOWN OF SHETULA
  • 00:05:39.210 --> 00:05:40.260
  • WHERE I'M STANDING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:43.060
  • THAT IS UNTIL THE ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES DISCOVERED
  • 00:05:43.080 --> 00:05:47.150
  • AND DESTROYED THAT TUNNEL, BUT THE THREAT REMAINS.
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:51.240
  • -[ELLIOT CHODOF] THE PURPOSE OF THE TUNNELS
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.090
  • WAS TO GET ADVANCED PARTIES INTO ISRAEL.
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:55.280
  • SMALL UNITS,
  • 00:05:56.000 --> 00:05:58.040
  • SAY DOZENS FOR OUR PURPOSES,
  • 00:05:58.060 --> 00:05:59.230
  • MAYBE EVEN LESS THAN THAT, TO GET IN
  • 00:05:59.250 --> 00:06:02.120
  • AND GRAB KEY TACTICAL AREAS WHETHER IT'S A HIGH POINT,
  • 00:06:02.140 --> 00:06:05.050
  • AN OBSERVATION POINT, AN INTERSECTION, A ROAD,
  • 00:06:05.070 --> 00:06:08.210
  • IN ORDER TO BLOCK OFF AN AREA, PREVENT ISRAELI FORCES
  • 00:06:08.230 --> 00:06:12.020
  • FROM GETTING INTO THAT AREA, AND ALLOW THOSE
  • 00:06:12.040 --> 00:06:15.000
  • ASSAULT COMPANIES TO CROSS OVER ABOVE GROUND.
  • 00:06:15.020 --> 00:06:17.250
  • - AH SO YOU'D HAVE ABOVE GROUND AND BELOW GROUND.
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:20.200
  • - COMING UP FIRST BELOW AND THEN COMING IN
  • 00:06:20.230 --> 00:06:23.020
  • FROM ABOVE, IF THEY TAKE GROUND THAT HAPPENS TO BE
  • 00:06:23.040 --> 00:06:25.160
  • A POPULATED AREA AND THEY KILL TWO, THREE, FOUR
  • 00:06:25.180 --> 00:06:28.220
  • FIVE HUNDRED CIVILIANS AND THEN GET WIPED OUT,
  • 00:06:28.240 --> 00:06:31.260
  • THAT'S A VICTORY FOR THEM.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:33.230
  • - WOW, THEY KILL CIVILIANS, THEY PLANT THE HEZBOLLAH FLAG
  • 00:06:33.250 --> 00:06:36.270
  • ON ISRAELI SOIL
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:37.290
  • - TAKE THE SELFIE
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:39.070
  • - THE SELFIE WITH THE FLAG THE IMAGE BEAMS OUT
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:41.100
  • AL-JAZEERA
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.060
  • - WE CONQUERED THE GALILEE.
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:44.090
  • THAT'S THE IDEA BEHIND IT.
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:46.250
  • - WHEN THE INCOMING ALERT SOUNDS, THE RED ALERT SOUNDS,
  • 00:06:46.270 --> 00:06:50.100
  • I HAVE BETWEEN ZERO TO TEN SECONDS TO GET FROM
  • 00:06:50.120 --> 00:06:52.210
  • WHEREVER I AM IN THE HOUSE, INTO THIS ROOM.
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:55.220
  • - THAT'S NOT VERY LONG THOUGH
  • 00:06:55.240 --> 00:06:57.000
  • - IT'S NOT AT ALL AND I DON'T ALWAYS MAKE IT
  • 00:06:57.020 --> 00:06:58.270
  • IF I'M IN THE BATHROOM, IF I'M IN THE SHOWER,
  • 00:06:58.290 --> 00:07:00.210
  • I DON'T MAKE IT IN TIME, AND THEN WHEN I GET HERE
  • 00:07:00.230 --> 00:07:03.220
  • I HAVE TO CLOSE THE IRON WINDOW,
  • 00:07:03.240 --> 00:07:09.060
  • AND THEN CLOSE THAT WINDOW AS WELL.
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:11.090
  • - AND THEN
  • 00:07:11.110 --> 00:07:12.040
  • - AND THEN I'M SAFE.
  • 00:07:12.060 --> 00:07:13.160
  • - THEN AND ONLY THEN AND GOD FORBID LIKE YOU SAID
  • 00:07:13.180 --> 00:07:15.200
  • IF YOU'RE IN THE BATHROOM, ZERO
  • 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:18.040
  • - NO I DON'T GET HERE, IF I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SHOWER
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:20.100
  • I DON'T GET HERE IN ZERO TO TEN.
  • 00:07:20.120 --> 00:07:22.030

  • - AND EVERY HOME IN THE COMMUNITY HAS ONE?
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:26.020
  • - EVERY HOME WITHIN SEVEN KILOMETERS OF THE BORDER
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:28.260
  • HAS TO HAVE A ROOM THAT IS BASICALLY A BOMB SHELTER.
  • 00:07:28.280 --> 00:07:32.220
  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:07:32.240 --> 00:07:40.240
  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:07:40.240 --> 00:07:48.100

  • AND WE ARE ON THE FRONTLINES QUITE LITERALLY.
  • 00:07:50.210 --> 00:07:53.270
  • THIS WAS THE FRONTLINE BETWEEN THE PESHMERGA AND ISIS.
  • 00:07:53.290 --> 00:07:58.050
  • BATTLES WITH ISIS OCCURRED RIGHT WHERE I AM SITTING,
  • 00:07:58.070 --> 00:08:01.100
  • NOT ONLY THAT, TODAY IT IS STILL A FRONTLINE
  • 00:08:01.120 --> 00:08:04.170

  • - IT WOULD BE FIVE TO SIX MONTHS.
  • 00:08:09.190 --> 00:08:12.040
  • ISIS TRIED TO TAKE THIS VILLAGE 14 TIMES.
  • 00:08:12.060 --> 00:08:16.030
  • EVERY TIME THEY WERE HEAVILY ATTACKING THIS VILLAGE,
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:19.070
  • BUT THANKFULLY, EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY TRIED,
  • 00:08:19.090 --> 00:08:22.280
  • THEY FAILED.
  • 00:08:23.000 --> 00:08:24.110
  • WE DEFEATED THEM EVERY TIME.
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:26.240
  • THEY LEFT A LOT OF THEIR DEAD BODIES HERE
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:28.270

  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:44.100
  • - KIDRON VALLEY, ALSO KNOWN AS VALLEY OF JOSAPHAT,
  • 00:17:44.120 --> 00:17:47.240
  • ALSO KNOWN AS KING'S VALLEY.
  • 00:17:47.260 --> 00:17:50.060
  • WHEN PILGRIM'S COME IN TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:17:50.080 --> 00:17:52.100
  • AND SEE THIS MAGNIFICENT
  • 00:17:52.120 --> 00:17:54.230
  • WELL-BUILT MONUMENT OVER HERE,
  • 00:17:54.250 --> 00:17:57.230
  • AUTOMATICALLY THEY WILL CONNECT IT TO ABSALOM.
  • 00:17:57.250 --> 00:18:01.130
  • - IT MUST BE ABSALOM'S PILLAR, AS THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:18:01.150 --> 00:18:03.280
  • SO UNDER ROME, THIS PLACE WAS ROCKING,
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:06.190
  • IT WAS THRIVING, IT WAS PART OF THE DECAPOLIS.
  • 00:18:06.210 --> 00:18:09.180
  • - IT WAS A LEAGUE OF TEN CITIES THAT WERE
  • 00:18:09.200 --> 00:18:11.160
  • PAGAN IN NATURE AND SUPPORTED BY THE ROMANS,
  • 00:18:11.180 --> 00:18:13.290
  • AND IT WAS ALREADY A TREATY THAT WAS INACTIVE
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:17.200
  • IN THE DAYS OF JESUS.
  • 00:18:17.220 --> 00:18:19.030
  • THE NEW TESTAMENT MENTIONS JESUS LIVING IN THE GALILEE
  • 00:18:19.050 --> 00:18:22.010
  • BUT UPGRADING ALSO IN THE DECAPOLIS.
  • 00:18:22.030 --> 00:18:25.090
  • - THIS WALL IS DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE WESTERN WALL
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:29.180
  • OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • 00:18:29.200 --> 00:18:31.020
  • ONE OF THE GREAT MYSTERIES FOR GENERATIONS,
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:33.240
  • IS WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ARK OF THE COVENANT.
  • 00:18:33.260 --> 00:18:35.250
  • THE QUESTION IS
  • 00:18:35.270 --> 00:18:37.070
  • WHEN WAS IT LOST?
  • 00:18:37.090 --> 00:18:39.180
  • AND FOR THAT STORY WE HAVE TO GO BACK SOME
  • 00:18:39.200 --> 00:18:41.130
  • 27 HUNDRED YEARS TO THE TIME OF
  • 00:18:41.150 --> 00:18:43.250
  • THE BIBLICAL KING HEZEKIAH.
  • 00:18:43.270 --> 00:18:45.190
  • - PROPHET ISAIAH.
  • 00:18:45.210 --> 00:18:46.170
  • - THAT'S RIGHT, PROPHET ISAIAH.
  • 00:18:46.190 --> 00:18:47.190
  • - FIRST TEMPLE, SOLOMON'S TEMPLE.
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:49.010
  • - THERE YOU GO.
  • 00:18:49.030 --> 00:18:50.030
  • - THIS BECOMES THE HOMESTEAD.
  • 00:18:50.050 --> 00:18:51.150
  • THIS IS WHERE ISAAC COMES BACK TO,
  • 00:18:51.170 --> 00:18:53.110
  • JACOB COMES BACK TO HERE FOR A WHILE,
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:56.180
  • BUT THE HOMESTEAD IN THE SENSE OF
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:18:58.240
  • THIS IS THE AREA WHERE HE PITCHED HIS TENT.
  • 00:18:58.260 --> 00:19:01.260
  • HE DOESN'T BUILD A HOUSE,
  • 00:19:01.280 --> 00:19:03.100
  • HE IS A NOMAD WITHIN HIS LAND.
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:06.030
  • - THE PATRIARCH ABRAHAM.
  • 00:19:06.050 --> 00:19:07.270
  • ELLIOT, WHERE WE'RE STANDING RIGHT NOW
  • 00:19:07.290 --> 00:19:09.160
  • ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB LIVED HERE.
  • 00:19:09.180 --> 00:19:12.290
  • - YES, HERE IN THIS AREA.
  • 00:19:13.010 --> 00:19:14.190
  • - WOW.
  • 00:19:14.210 --> 00:19:15.220
  • - INSCRIPTION SAYS
  • 00:19:15.240 --> 00:19:19.290
  • TO NATHAN-MELECH, OR ACTUALLY BELONGING TO NATHAN-MELECH
  • 00:19:20.010 --> 00:19:23.230
  • THE SERVANT OF THE KING.
  • 00:19:23.250 --> 00:19:27.050
  • - NOW TELL US WHO HE WAS.
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:28.240
  • - OKAY SO FIRST BY HIS TITLE THE SERVANT OF THE KING
  • 00:19:28.260 --> 00:19:32.010
  • YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS AN OFFICIAL,
  • 00:19:32.030 --> 00:19:33.270
  • THIS IS A PERSON OF HIGH RANK, SOMEONE WHO WORKED IN THE
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:38.140
  • KING COURT.
  • 00:19:38.160 --> 00:19:39.250
  • - YEAH, SO A HIGH RANKING GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:19:39.270 --> 00:19:41.210
  • - SERVANT OF THE KING IS A TITLE NOT OF A SERVANT,
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:44.190
  • BUT AN OFFICIAL OF THE KING.
  • 00:19:44.210 --> 00:19:47.140
  • - MAY I HOLD THIS BY THE WAY?
  • 00:19:47.160 --> 00:19:48.190
  • - OF COURSE.
  • 00:19:48.210 --> 00:19:49.140
  • - THANK YOU MY FRIEND.
  • 00:19:49.160 --> 00:19:50.220
  • PLEASE CONTINUE AS I JUST ADMIRE THIS INCREDIBLE
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:54.030
  • ARCHEOLOGICAL FIND 26 HUNDRED YEARS OLD.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:57.070
  • - THIS WAS THE CENTERPIECE, THIS REGION,
  • 00:19:57.090 --> 00:19:59.100
  • OF THE MINISTRY OF JESUS.
  • 00:19:59.120 --> 00:20:01.120
  • WE'RE JUST A SHORT WALK RIGHT NOW FROM CAPERNAUM
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:03.180
  • WHICH WAS KNOWN AS THE TOWN OF JESUS,
  • 00:20:03.200 --> 00:20:05.180
  • SCENE OF MANY OF HIS MAJOR MIRACLES
  • 00:20:05.200 --> 00:20:08.040
  • AND I SEE THE PILGRIM'S WALK THROUGH.
  • 00:20:08.060 --> 00:20:10.140
  • THEY VISIT ALL THESE GREAT SITES FROM NAZARETH
  • 00:20:10.160 --> 00:20:12.230
  • TO CANA TO CAPERNAUM, AND BEYOND.
  • 00:20:12.250 --> 00:20:15.160
  • - THEY TAKE OUT THEIR TORCHES AND THEY LIGHT THEM UP,
  • 00:20:15.180 --> 00:20:18.110
  • AND
  • 00:20:18.130 --> 00:20:19.090
  • BOOM.
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:20.040
  • - BOOM.
  • 00:20:20.060 --> 00:20:21.110
  • - THEY SEE ALL OF THIS, LOOK AT THIS SIZE.
  • 00:20:21.130 --> 00:20:22.270
  • - THIS IS, LET ME GATHER MYSELF
  • 00:20:22.290 --> 00:20:25.060
  • AND TAKE THIS ALL IN FOR A SECOND.
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:27.010
  • - IT'S GOT A LOT OF EVIDENCE OF QUARRYING ACTIVITY.
  • 00:20:27.030 --> 00:20:29.260
  • THIS WAS DEFINITELY A QUARRY.
  • 00:20:29.280 --> 00:20:31.140
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:32.200
  • - IN FACT IT'S THE BIGGEST MAN-MADE CAVE
  • 00:20:32.220 --> 00:20:34.220
  • IN ALL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:20:34.240 --> 00:20:36.050
  • - INCREDIBLE, IT LOOKS LIKE KIND OF A MYSTERIOUS PLACE
  • 00:20:36.070 --> 00:20:38.000
  • BUT THE ENTRANCE IS RIGHT ON THE STREET LIKE YOU SAID.
  • 00:20:38.020 --> 00:20:40.270
  • - THIS IS THE RIM OF A BALL, THIS IS THE ACTUAL
  • 00:20:40.290 --> 00:20:42.220
  • RIM OF A BALL, AND YOU CAN SEE THE TYPICAL
  • 00:20:42.240 --> 00:20:45.000
  • WHALE-BURNISHING, TYPICAL OF THE EIGHTH CENTURY BCE,
  • 00:20:45.020 --> 00:20:49.020
  • TIME OF KING HEZEKIAH AND PROPHET ISAIAH.
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:51.270
  • THIS IS FROM THE FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD
  • 00:20:51.290 --> 00:20:53.250
  • - 27 HUNDRED YEARS AGO?
  • 00:20:53.270 --> 00:20:55.020
  • - 27 HUNDRED YEARS AGO, AND NOT ONLY IS IT
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:56.250
  • FROM THE FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD, THIS COULD'VE BEEN
  • 00:20:56.270 --> 00:20:59.030
  • IN THE ACTUAL TEMPLE, SO FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:01.160
  • AND PERHAPS FROM THE FIRST TEMPLE ITSELF.
  • 00:21:01.180 --> 00:21:03.140
  • - YOU GOT TO LET ME HOLD THAT.
  • 00:21:03.160 --> 00:21:04.140
  • - THAT'S MIND-BOGGLING.
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:05.240
  • - THAT IS MIND-BOGGLING, WOW, THIS IS QUITE POSSIBLY
  • 00:21:05.260 --> 00:21:08.240
  • FROM SOLOMON'S TEMPLE.
  • 00:21:08.260 --> 00:21:10.280
  • PRETTY MUCH A PROBABILITY, VERY LIKELY THAT JESUS
  • 00:21:11.000 --> 00:21:13.270
  • AND HIS DISCIPLES WALKED UP THESE STEPS WHERE
  • 00:21:13.290 --> 00:21:16.090
  • WE'RE SITTING RIGHT NOW, SET THE SCENE FOR US,
  • 00:21:16.110 --> 00:21:18.150
  • WHERE ARE WE.
  • 00:21:18.170 --> 00:21:20.060
  • - WELL, WE'RE ON THE SOUTHERN STAIRS, OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT.
  • 00:21:20.080 --> 00:21:25.150
  • BEHIND US
  • 00:21:25.170 --> 00:21:27.030
  • WAS
  • 00:21:27.050 --> 00:21:28.180
  • THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:21:28.200 --> 00:21:30.090
  • THE GATES ARE
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:32.080
  • HULDAH GATES HERE,
  • 00:21:32.100 --> 00:21:33.080
  • THE EASTERN GATE OVER THERE,
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:35.100
  • THE WESTERN GATE,
  • 00:21:35.120 --> 00:21:37.010
  • AND UNTIL TODAY EVEN THE TUNNELS THAT LEAD THE PEOPLE
  • 00:21:37.030 --> 00:21:40.090
  • TO THE TEMPLE ITSELF EXISTS.
  • 00:21:40.110 --> 00:21:43.030

  • 00:21:43.050 --> 00:21:45.280
  • OUR WATCHMAN TEAM AIMS TO BRING A LITTLE PIECE
  • 00:21:46.000 --> 00:21:48.270

  • UP NEXT,
  • 00:21:51.290 --> 00:21:53.210
  • 2019 WAS A CHAOTIC YEAR,
  • 00:21:53.230 --> 00:21:56.030
  • SO WHAT DOES 2020 HAVE IN STORE FOR ISRAEL AND AMERICA,
  • 00:21:56.050 --> 00:22:00.100

  • STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT AND FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT.

  • ANTISEMITISM HAS RISEN TO UNPRECEDENTED LEVELS
  • 00:22:09.160 --> 00:22:12.270
  • IN AMERICA,
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:14.070
  • AND ISRAEL'S ENEMIES HAVE BEEN RELENTLESS IN THEIR
  • 00:22:14.090 --> 00:22:16.290
  • ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY THE JEWISH STATE.
  • 00:22:17.010 --> 00:22:20.060
  • FROM THE BOYCOTT DIVEST AND SANCTIONED MOVEMENT
  • 00:22:20.080 --> 00:22:23.090
  • ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES, AND EVEN IN THE HALLS OF CONGRESS,
  • 00:22:23.110 --> 00:22:27.170
  • TO ENDLESS ROCKETS FROM HAMAS AND GAZA
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:30.110
  • AND IRAN'S PROXIES IN LEBANON AND SYRIA.
  • 00:22:30.130 --> 00:22:33.260
  • ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE NEED FRIENDS MORE THAN EVER.
  • 00:22:33.280 --> 00:22:38.070
  • WE ARE FIGHTING ANTISEMITISM BY EDUCATING AND EMPOWERING

  • THIS SPECIAL WATCHMAN YEAR IN REVIEW SHOW
  • 00:23:19.180 --> 00:23:22.240
  • AND NOW THAT 2019 IS HISTORY,
  • 00:23:22.260 --> 00:23:25.070
  • IT'S TIME TO LOOK AHEAD TO 2020.
  • 00:23:25.090 --> 00:23:28.060
  • ALREADY IT'S SHAPING UP AS A VERY BIG YEAR FOR ISRAEL
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:32.080
  • AND AMERICA, AS PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BE SEEKING REELECTION
  • 00:23:32.100 --> 00:23:35.240
  • AMID ALL THE IMPEACHMENT NOISE,
  • 00:23:35.260 --> 00:23:38.070
  • AND ISRAEL WILL GO TO THE POLLS FOR THE THIRD TIME
  • 00:23:38.090 --> 00:23:41.170
  • IN LESS THAN A YEAR, IN HOPES OF FINALLY SELECTING
  • 00:23:41.190 --> 00:23:44.220
  • A PRIME MINISTER.
  • 00:23:44.240 --> 00:23:46.020
  • LET'S HOPE THAT BOTH NATIONS MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION,
  • 00:23:46.040 --> 00:23:49.140
  • BECAUSE SERIOUS THREATS ARE GATHERING.
  • 00:23:49.160 --> 00:23:52.170
  • WE MENTIONED THE IRANIAN REGIME EARLIER IN THE SHOW,
  • 00:23:52.190 --> 00:23:55.090
  • THE IRANIAN ECONOMY IS IN SHAMBLES,
  • 00:23:55.110 --> 00:23:58.020
  • AND PEOPLE ARE PROTESTING IN THE STREETS,
  • 00:23:58.040 --> 00:24:00.240
  • SO LOOK FOR IRAN TO LASH OUT IN RESPONSE
  • 00:24:00.260 --> 00:24:03.280
  • WITH MORE PROVOCATIONS AGAINST ITS EXTERNAL ENEMIES
  • 00:24:04.000 --> 00:24:07.270
  • LIKE ISRAEL, THE US AND ITS ARAB NEIGHBORS,
  • 00:24:07.290 --> 00:24:11.100
  • BOTH DIRECTLY AND THROUGH ITS PROXIES LIKE HEZBOLLAH.
  • 00:24:11.120 --> 00:24:15.270
  • SYRIA COULD BE THE PLACE WHERE IT ALL COMES TO A HEAD.
  • 00:24:15.290 --> 00:24:19.170
  • IRAN IS DETERMINED TO ESTABLISH A FORWARD BASE THERE
  • 00:24:19.190 --> 00:24:23.270
  • FROM WHICH IT CAN ATTACK ISRAEL,
  • 00:24:23.290 --> 00:24:26.150
  • AND ISRAEL SAYS NO WAY WE WILL NOT ALLOW IT.
  • 00:24:26.170 --> 00:24:30.190
  • THE TWO SIDES ARE ON A COLLISION COURSE.
  • 00:24:30.210 --> 00:24:33.250
  • FOLKS, A GREAT NORTHERN WAR IS COMING,
  • 00:24:33.270 --> 00:24:37.040
  • AND IRAN HAS TWO POWERFUL AND DANGEROUS FRIENDS
  • 00:24:37.060 --> 00:24:40.220
  • IN THE FORM OF TURKEY AND RUSSIA.
  • 00:24:40.240 --> 00:24:43.080
  • THAT IRAN, TURKEY, RUSSIA ALLIANCE IS SOMETHING
  • 00:24:43.100 --> 00:24:46.240
  • WE'LL BE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY HERE
  • 00:24:46.260 --> 00:24:48.280

  • WE LIVE IN PERILOUS TIMES,

  • BUT
  • 00:25:04.170 --> 00:25:05.110
  • WE ALSO LIVE IN BIBLE TIMES,
