Cornerstone Church held its “A Night to Honor Israel” on Sunday evening, where guest speaker Glenn Beck brought the overflow crowd of more than 7,000 attendees to their feet repeatedly with his full-throated support of the Jewish people.
“What's happened throughout history is that evil thinks it can win, and essentially it can win by making God break his promise,” he intoned from an elevated podium. “And how can it do that? By killing all the Jews! Then there'll be nobody left for him to keep his promise! That's happened over and over and over again! But not on my watch! And not on your watch!”
His words were almost drowned out by cheers as people stood, many of them waving American and Israeli flags.
It was the 30th year of the event, begun in the '80s by Cornerstone Pastor John Hagee as a way to communicate his support for the state of Israel and to unite Christians and Jews in that common purpose.
He said Sunday night that the time for a “Third Great Awakening” had arrived and that G-d is preparing a “surprise party for Satan.”
“All we have to do is the next right thing, and the right thing is to stand with the good people of Israel, our good Jewish friends who are just like us — we're all brothers and sisters under G-d,” Beck intoned.
