Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 1, 2012. Read Transcript



HELLO.


I'M BRIAN WARREN.


I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON.


THANKS FOR JOINING US.


LAURA-LYNN, WELL, WE'RE INTO


AUGUST NOW.


YES.


I HAVE REALLY ENJOYED THIS


SUMMER.


I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I


TOLD YOU THIS BARBECUE THING,


I'M JUST GOING CRAZY ABOUT THE


BARBECUE.


THE NEXT THING I WANT IS THE


EGG.


WHAT?


YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS?


THE EGG.


YOU CANNOT BARBECUE EGGS.


YOU JUST -- MISS IT, BUT --


YOU KNOW WHAT?


IF YOU ARE -- A -- A BARBECUE


PERSON, YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT


THIS BARBECUE EGG, THE GREEN


EGG, IS PROBABLY THE ESSENTIAL


BARBECUE TOOL.


LIKE DR. SEUSS, RIGHT?


GREEN EGGS AND HAM.


YOUR KILLING ME.


SOMEONE HELP THIS WOMAN, PRAY,


PRAY HARD.


SO, I'M REALLY INTO BARBECUE.


I'M GETTING IT.


IT IS LIKE A ROTISSERIE.


NO -- NO.


IT'S NOT ROTISSERIE.


BUT -- CAN SOMEONE GOOGLE WHILE


WE'RE ON THE AIR AND GET


LAURA-LYNN SOME EDUCATION?


I DON'T THINK THAT WE HAVE


TIME TO TALK ABOUT ALL OF YOUR


BARBECUE STUFF ON THE SHOW.


I LOVE BARBECUE.


ON TODAY'S SHOW, YOU'LL SEE TWO


AMAZING STORIES NOT ABOUT


BARBECUE, BUT WHERE GOD STEPPED


IN RIGHT WHEN THEY NEEDED HIM


THE MOST.


YES.


DR. CELL KNEW THE PILLS THAT HE


PRESCRIBED WOULD WORK FOR HIS


PATIENTS, BECAUSE HE USED THEM


TO NUMB THE PAIN IN HIS OWN


LIFE.


TODAY, YOU WILL SEE HOW GOD


SAVED CELL FROM AN ADDICTION


THAT NEARLY ENDED HIS LIFE.


UH-HUH.


YOU'LL SEE ALSO, ONE INTERIOR


DECORATOR IS USING HER


RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD TO INSPIRE


HER DESIGNS.


BUT JULIE WILL EXPLAIN THAT HER


FAITH WAS NOT ALWAYS IN A HIGHER


POWER.


SHE TALKS ABOUT THE EVENT THAT


CHANGED HER LIFE.


AND NIKI CANTELON IS HERE


WITH GREAT WAYS FOR YOU TO


INCREASE YOUR ENERGY.


BUT FIRST, JULIE PUTS DOWN


HER LUCKY CHARMS.


JULIE WANTED TO MAKE A NAME


FOR HERSELF AS AN INTERIOR


DECORATOR IN THE PHILIPPINES.


SUCCESS MEANT EVERYTHING TO HER.


SO, SHE WORKED HARD AND BEGAN TO


FOLLOW AN ANCIENT PRACTICE SHE


THOUGHT WOULD BRING HER LUCK.


I BEGAN TO PRACTICE FENG


SHUI.


I PUT CHARM BRACELETS IN EVERY


CORNER IN MY HOUSE.


I WAS DETERMINED TO GET RICH FOR


MY DAUGHTER AND MYSELF.


FENG SHUI IS A CHINESE NEW AGE


PRACTICE WHICH PURPORTS TO


BALANCE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE


ENERGIES, BUT FOR JULIE, FENG


SHUI BECAME HER RELIGION.


I RELIED ON FENG SHUI TO


FULFILL MY DREAM, LIKE WAS MY


GOD.


IT CHANGED ME.


THEN ONE DAY A CONTRACTOR


WALKED OUT ON JULIE, LEAVING TWO


LARGE PROJECTS UNFINISHED.


THE CLIENT THREATENED TO SUE AND


THE BILLS BEGAN TO PILEUP.


I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.


I THOUGHT OF COMMITTING SUICIDE.


I NEEDED SOMEONE TO TALK TO.


THAT'S WHEN JULIE SWITCHED ON


THE TELEVISION AND CAME ACROSS


"THE 700 CLUB ASIA."


SHE CALLED THE NUMBER ON THE


SCREEN AND SPOKE WITH A CBN


PRAYER COUNSELOR.


SHE ENCOURAGED ME AND TOLD ME


THAT GOD HAD NOT FORSAKEN ME.


I PRAYED FOR JESUS TO FORGIVE ME


FOR TURNING AWAY FROM GOD.


JULIE CONTINUED TO WATCH "THE


700 CLUB" AND CALL THE PRAYER


CENTER.


SHE GOT RID OF ALL HER CHARMS


AND DEDICATED HER BUSINESS TO


GOD.


TODAY, THAT BUSINESS IS


PROSPERING.


I'M VERY THANKFUL TO CBN FOR


THE PROGRAM AND THE PRAYER


COUNSELORS.


THEY LISTENED TO ME AND LED ME


BACK TO GOD.


I'M NOW CONTENT AND HAVE PEACE


INSIDE.


YOU MAY BE SURPRISED TO HEAR


THAT JULIE ABANDONED


A CULTURALLY ACCEPTED NEW AGE


PRACTICE.


FENG SHUI.


IT MEANS WIND AND WATER.


WHICH ARE MEANT IN SOME WAY TO


COUNTER BALANCE EACH OTHER.


THIS CUSTOMS STEM FROM ANCIENT


TIMES WHEN THEY WOULD ALIGN


TOMBS IN SUCH A WAY TO HARNESSES


THE ENERGY IN THE UNIVERSE.


IT WAS MAN'S WAY TO CONNECT


HUMANS AND THE "COSMO"S.


TODAY IT INCORPORATES


SUPERSTITIONS THAT ARE MEANT TO


BRING PEACE.


BUT LIKE JULIE SAID IT DIDN'T


WORK.


THE ONLY PEACE THAT HE FINALLY


FOUND WAS IN HER RELATIONSHIP


WITH JESUS CHRIST.


HE IS THE TRUE AUTHOR OF PEACE


AND HE CREATED THE UNIVERSE.


A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE TALKING


TODAY ABOUT THE ENERGY IN THE


UNIVERSE.


THEY ARE RIGHT IN THAT THERE IS


A LOT OF ENERGY OUT THERE, BUT


IT IS NOT GOD, ANYMORE THAN


GASOLINE SHOULD BE WORSHIPED


BECAUSE IT SUPPLIES ENERGY TO


A CAR.


YOU CAN HAVE THE POWER INSIDE


YOU THAT COMES FROM THE ONE WHO


CREATED THE MASSIVE EXPANSE AND


ENERGY OF THE HEAVENS.


IT IS AVAILABLE TO YOU.


THESE PRACTICES THAT WORSHIP THE


CREATION, RATHER THAN CREATOR


ARE MISLEADING.


THE BIBLE WARNS US AGAINST SUCH


THINGS.


TERRAPINS WERE HOUSEHOLD IMAGES


AND GOOD LUCK CHARMS, IN


ZECHARIAH 10:2, IT SAYS FOR THE


TERRAPINS, HOUSEHOLD IDOLS HAVE


SPOKEN VANITY, EMPTINESS,


FALSITY AND FUTILITY AND THE


ACTIVITIENERS HAVE SEEN A LIE


AND THE DREAMERS HAVE TOLD FALSE


DREAMS.


THEY COME IN VEIN.


THEREFORE THE PEOPLE GO THERE


LIKE SHEEP, AND THEY ARE


AFFLICTED AND HURT BECAUSE THERE


IS NO SHEPHERD.


JESUS, HE IS THE TRUE SHEPHERD.


TODAY YOU CAN FIND THE SOURCE OF


TRUE POWER THAT WILL ENCOMPASS


YOU AND WRAP YOU IN A PEACE THAT


YOU HAVE NEVER BEFORE


EXPERIENCED.


YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT


WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING


ABOUT, LAURA-LYNN, I'VE FOUND


THAT CANADA IS A VERY SPIRITUAL


PLACE, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE IT


A CHRISTIAN PLACE.


I BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTS TO MOVE


IN YOUR LIFE.


JUST LIKE JULIE.


I HAVE SOME LITERATURE I WOULD


LOVE TO PUT IN YOUR HAND IT IS


ABOUT THE NEW AGE.


LET ME TELL YOU WHAT NEW AGE IS.


NEW AGE IS JUST A NEW THOUGHT


ANYTHING BEYOND THE TAVCU.


ANYTHING BEYOND THE FISH, THE


CROSS, CHRIST.


TODAY, I WONDER IF YOU'RE SAYING


I'M SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING


SPIRITUAL, BUT I NEED GOD TO DO


SOMETHING IN MY LIFE, JUST OPEN


UP YOUR HEART AND TAKE THE


BIGGEST BREATH YOU HAVE EVER


TAKEN ON THE COUNT OF THREE.


ONE, TWO, THREE.


FATHER, I PRAY WITH THAT BREATH


THAT SOMEONE TODAY WILL


RECOGNIZE THE BREATH OF LIFE,


WHICH IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.


IN THIS MOMENT WOULD YOU FLOOD


INTO THEIR LIVES AND START THE


JOURNEY.


IN JESUS' NAME.


WOW.


PRAYER LINE IS


1-855-759-0700.


GIVE US A CALL.


DADDY?


YEAH.


BUDDY.


HOW MANY NICKELS ARE IN


A DOLLAR?


THERE ARE 20 NICKELS IN A


DOLLAR.


HOW DO BIRDS FLY?


DOES MILK REALLY MAKE MY BONES


STRONGER?


DADDY WHEN WE DIE, WILL WE GO TO


HEAVEN?


DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO


LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION?


CALL "THE 700 CLUB CANADA."


WE'LL HELP YOU FIND ANSWERS TO


THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIFE


BRINGS YOUR WAY.


[ MUSIC ]


MANY YEARS AGO I WAS TALKING


TO A FRIEND TO HELP ME DEAL WITH


THE TREMENDOUS SENSE OF LOSS AND


SHAME THAT I HAD OVER GOING


THROUGH A PERSONAL FAILURE.


I WAS SO DESTROYED INSIDE AND


FELT DISQUALIFIED FROM A CALL I


PREVIOUS FELT WAS ON MY LIFE.


MY FRIEND ASKED ME TO DO


SOMETHING REALLY SIGNIFICANT.


THEY ASKED ME TO CLOSE MY EYES


AND PICTURE, AS IF I WAS


STANDING BEFORE GOD HIMSELF AND


TO DESCRIBE WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE.


THE IMMEDIATE PICTURE THAT CAME


TO ME MIND I WAS IN THIS HUGE


ROOM WITH A LIGHT SHINING DOWN


ON ME, THAT I PERCEIVED TO BE


GOD'S PRESENCE, BUT I WAS


WEARING ONLY A HOSPITAL GOWN.


YOU KNOW THOSE ONES, THEY ARE


BLUE AND THEY DO UP THAT BACK.


THAT'S HOW I SAW MYSELF AS


A SICKLY WOUNDED PERSON WHO


OBVIOUSLY NEEDED A PHYSICIAN.


IT WAS A VERY SAD STATE.


THEN MY FRIEND PRAYED AND ASKED


GOD TO SUPER NATURALLY SHOW ME


HOW GOD SAW ME.


INSTANTLY, IT WAS AS IF A JIB


CAMERA, THAT'S ONE OF THE


CAMERAS ON A REALLY LONG ARM.


THIS JIB CAMERA LOOK BEGAN


CIRCLING AROUND ME.


AS IT DID, EVERY PART OF ME


CHANGED.


I WAS SUDDENLY IN A SPECTACULAR


WHITE DRESS MADE OF SATIN WITH


DIAMONDS AND JEWELS AND PEARLS


EMBEDDED THROUGHOUT THE DRESS.


AS THE PICTURE CONTINUED TO BE


REVEALED TO ME, MY FACE SHOWN


WITH AN INCREDIBLE LIGHT.


THERE WAS A MAGNIFICENT CROWN ON


MY HEAD.


IT WAS A PICTURE OF STUNNING


BRILLIANCE.


I THOUGHT AT THE TIME IT LOOKED


AS IF I WERE A BRIDE.


IT STAGGERED ME, NO.


BECAUSE KNEW THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS


REVEALING TO ME HOW THE LORD SAW


ME.


IT WAS FAR, SO VERY FAR FROM HOW


I SAW MYSELF.


I TELL YOU, I BECAME A SOBBING


MESS AS I REALIZED THAT GOD SAW


ME.


CLOTHED IN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND


NOT MY OWN SHAME.


WAS MUCH LATER AS I STUDIED WHAT


THE BIBLE HAD TO SAY THAT WE'RE


CLOTHED IN SPIRITUALLY, THAT I


REALIZED GOD HAD SHOWED ME AN


ACCURATE PICTURE OF HIS VIEW OF


US.


PSALMS 8:5 SAID THAT YOU HAVE


MADE MAN A LITTLE BIT LOWER THAN


THE ANGELS AND CROWNED THEM WITH


GLORY AND HONOR.


DO YOU HEAR THAT?


HE HAS CROWNED YOU WITH GLORY


AND HONOR.


I WANT TO SHOW YOU A MOST


AMAZING VERSE.


LOOK WHAT ISAIAH 61:10 SAYS, I


WILL GREATLY REJOICE IN


THE LORD.


MY SOUL WILL EXALT IN MY GOD,


FOR HE HAS CLOTHED ME WITH THE


GARMENTS OF SALVATION.


HE HAS COVERED ME WITH THE ROBE


OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, AS


A BRIDEGROOM DECKS HIMSELF WITH


A GARLAND AND HOW A BRIDE ADORNS


HERSELF WITH HER JEWELS.


THAT'S HOW GOD SEES YOU TODAY.


NOT THE WAY THAT WE SEE


OURSELVES.


ALL MESSED UP AND MESSED OVER.


NO.


TO OUR FATHER.


WE ARE A BEAUTIFUL BRIDE.


A MAGNIFICENT CREATION.


BORN FOR GREAT PURPOSE TO HAVE


DOMINION IN THIS LIFETIME.


THE ENEMY, HE WANTS TO CONVINCE


YOU THAT ARE DONE IN.


THERE IS NO HOPE FOR YOU.


DISQUALIFIED AND USED UP, BUT


THAT IS A LIE.


YOU ARE CLOTHED IN HIS


RIGHTEOUSNESS, BORN TO REIGN.


ADOPTED IN HIS FAMILY.


YOU ARE ROYALTY.


AMEN.


WOW.


YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE THAT


LAURA-LYNN.


BECAUSE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I


HAVE DISCOVERED IN PASTORING, IT


IS VERY INTERESTING HOW EVERY


TIME YOU'RE UNDER AN ATTACK, THE


ENEMY ONLY SHOWS YOU WHAT YOU'RE


GOING THROUGH AND WHAT YOU COME


THROUGH, HE CAN NEVER SHOW YOU


YOUR FUTURE, BUT LISTEN TO THIS,


BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT'S AHEAD,


HE JUST DOESN'T KNOWS HOW IT


HAPPENS, GOD SAYS THIS -- I MADE


YOU SPECIAL.


BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN YOUR


MOTHER'S WOMB, I KNEW YOU AND I


HAD A PLAN FOR YOU.


HOOK UP TO HIS PLAN AND IT'S


A SLAM DUNK.


YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE IT.


GOD BLESS YOU RICHLY.


NIKI CANTELON IS BACK AND SHE


SHOWS YOU HOW TO INCREASE YOUR


ENERGY.


HI.


I'M NIKI.


WELCOME TO THE GET UP AND GET


MOVING SEGMENT.


EACH WEEK I'LL PRESENT TO YOU


THREE DIFFERENT MOVES THAT ARE


DESIGNED TO GET YOUR HEART RATE


UP, INCREASE YOUR STRENGTH AND


IMPROVE YOUR FLEXIBILITY.


THESE MOVES ARE SIMPLE MOVES.


DESIGNED FOR ANYBODY TO DO AT


ANYTIME.


NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE.


THERE'S NO EXCUSES.


YOU CAN GET UP AND GET MOVING


RIGHT NOW TODAY.


FEEL FREE TO HIT THE WEBSITE


AFTER, I'LL GIVE YOU THOSE


COORDINATES AFTER AND FEEL FREE


TO PUT TOGETHER A LITTLE PLAN.


IF YOU CAN GET UP AND GET MOVING


30 MINUTES EVERY DAY, YOU'LL


NOTICE SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE IN


EVERY DAY LIFE.


THAT LEADS ME TO OUR TIP FOR


TODAY.


REMEMBER, TO INCREASE YOUR


ENERGY YOU SHOULD BE PUTTING


ENERGY OUT.


THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST


COMPLAINTS THAT I HEAR FROM


PEOPLE.


THEY DON'T HAVE ENERGY TO GET UP


AND TO EXERCISE.


THE THING IS ONCE YOU GET MOVING


AND ONCE YOU GET ACTIVE ON


A REGULAR BASIS, YOU WILL NOTICE


SUCH AN INCREASE ON THE ENERGY


YOU HAVE TO GET THROUGH THE DAY,


BUT THE END OF THE DAY YOU'LL


WANT TO KEEP GOING, YOU WON'T


LEAVE IT.


SO REMEMBER PUTTING ENERGY OUT


WILL GIVE YOU THE ENERGY YOU


NEED TO KEEP GOING.


OKAY?


SO, LET'S GET INTO OUR CARDIO


FOR TODAY.


WE'RE MOVING INTO JOGGING ON THE


SPOT.


SO, STARTING HERE, IF YOU'VE


NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE, JUST ONE


KNEE UP AT A TIME.


OKAY?


SUPER SIMPLE, NO MATTER WHERE


YOU ARE, YOU HAVE RUNNING SHOES


ON AND JUST BRINGING ONE KNEE UP


AT A TIME.


OKAY?


ADDING INTENSITY, YOU'RE


BRINGING YOUR FEET UP OFF OF THE


GROUND.


OKAY.


TIME YOURSELF, DO THIS FOR


A MINUTE OR TWO, AND ADD IN


OTHER CARDIO COMPONENTS ON THE


SITE.


JUMPING JACKS, UP THE STAIRS,


YOU'LL HAVE A GOOD CARDIO


COLLECTION GOING ON.


OKAY.


SO, KNEES UP OFF OF THE GROUND.


HEART RATE IS COMING UP.


OKAY.


KEEP IT GOING.


JOGGING ON THE SPOT, ABOUT AS


EASY AS IT GETS, RIGHT?


OKAY.


MOVING DOWN TO THE GROUND WE'RE


MOVING TO OUR CORE STRENGTHENING


SECTION.


SO, WE'RE GETTING INTO A PUSH UP


POSITION.


YOUR GAZE IS FOCUSED DOWN.


BOTTOM IS IN LINE WITH YOUR


SPINE.


YOU DON'T HAVE THE BRIDGE


HAPPENING.


NICE AND FLAT.


ONE AT A TIME BRING YOUR KNEE


TOWARDS YOUR ELBOW AND PUT IT


BACK DOWN.


OTHER ELBOW AND BACK DOWN AND


DOWN.


AGAIN, REMEMBER TO BREATHE WHEN


SOMETHING IS TOUGH, EXHALE.


KEEP GOING.


TRY TO DO 12 TO 15 ON EACH SIDE.


YOU'RE GOING TO FIND THIS TOUGH


TO BEGIN WITH.


YOU WILL BE AMAZED HOW QUICKLY


YOU CAN POP THROUGH IT ONCE YOU


GET GOING.


GOOD.


KEEP GOING, FOUR MORE, YOU CAN


DO IT.


THREE, TWO AND ONE.


SIT DOWN WITH ME.


I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU THIS FINE


TWIST.


SO, WE'RE SITTING DOWN.


YOU'RE CROSSING ONE ANKLE OVER


YOUR KNEE, SITTING UP NICE AND


STRAIGHT.


ELBOW TO KNEE, LOOKING TOWARDS


THE BACK WALL.


REMEMBERING TO BREATHE DEEPLY.


OKAY?


HOLDING EACH STRETCH FOR ABOUT


15 TO 20 SECONDS.


SWITCHING OVER TO THE OTHER


SIDE, ELBOW TO KNEE, SITTING UP


NICE AND TALL.


LOOKING TOWARDS THE OTHER BACK


WALL.

[ MUSIC ]


WELCOME BACK.


NEXT, DR. CELL KNOWS HE SHOULD


BE DEAD, BUT GOD HAD ANOTHER


PLAN.


[ MUSIC ]


CELL NEVER INTENDED FOR


ALCOHOL TO DEFINE HIM OR PUSH


HIM TO THE BRINK OF SUICIDE, BUT


IT DID.


WITH GENETICS CONSPIRING AGAINST


HIM, HE TURNED INTO AN ALCOHOLIC


LIKE HIS FATHER BEFORE HIM.


IT STARTED WHEN HE WAS VERY


YOUNG.


I WAS SURROUNDED BY ALCOHOL.


THE REFRIGERATOR WAS FULL OF


BEER.


MANY TIMES AS A TODDLER I


REMEMBER GOING TO THE


REFRIGERATOR, REACHING UP AND


TAKING BEER DOWN AND TAKING IT


TO MY DAD.


HE WOULD LEAVE IT OPEN AND I


WOULD TAKE SIPS OUT OF IT


MYSELF.


I REMEMBER DRINKING A FULL BEER


AT 6 OR 7 YEARS OLD.


CELL HAD FEW FRIENDS GROWING


UP.


THAT IS A LOT TO DO WITH NOT


BEING ABLE TO BRING FRIENDS HOME


AND A CHILDHOOD FILLED WITH HIS


DAD'S BROKEN PROMISES.


LOVED HIM VERY MUCH.


HE WAS A KIND MAN.


AS A CHILD I LEARNED I COULDN'T


COUNT ON HIM, BECAUSE HE HAD


A PROBLEM.


I SAID THAT WOULD NEVER BE ME.


I SAID I WOULD NEVER DO THAT.


LOOKING BACK.


I HAD A VOID IN MY LIFE.


I HAD A HOLE INSIDE OF ME.


THERE WAS SOMETHING MISSING, I


DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS, BUT I


WAS ALWAYS PURSUING THAT.


SOMETHING TO PUT INSIDE OF


THERE.


BY THE TIME HE BECAME A


TEEN, CELL WAS FILLING THAT VOID


WITH FOOTBALL, FRIENDS AND BEER.


HE PROMISES HE MADE TO HIMSELF


ABOUT NOT BECOMING AN ALCOHOLIC


WERE QUICKLY FADING.


I WOULD DRINK ONE BEER AND I


WOULD DRINK TWO.


I WOULD VERY NATURALLY FIT INTO


THAT ROLE.


I WAS A PARTIER.


AT AGE 17, CELL WAS


INTRODUCED TO PRESCRIPTION PAIN


PILLS AFTER AN OPERATION.


WHEN THEY RAN OUT HE FOUND OTHER


SOURCES.


I GOT TO THE POINT WHERE I


BECAME ADDICTED.


I WENT FROM TAKING THINGS TO


FEEL BETTER, TO TAKING THINGS


BECAUSE I HAD TO.


CELL HAD ALWAYS DONE WELL IN


SCHOOL, WHICH MADE IT EASY FOR


HIM TO MASK HIS DRUG AND ALCOHOL


ADDICTIONS.


HE EVEN MANAGED TO GRADUATE FROM


MEDICAL SCHOOL WITHOUT KNOWING


HE HAD A PROBLEM, BUT CELL KNEW.


I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO LIVE


LIKE I WAS.


I WAS SO A SHAMED.


THE SHAME AND THE GUILT WERE


LIKE CARRYING AROUND


10,000 POUNDS ON MY SHOULDERS.


I WAS SO A SHAMED THAT I BECAME


LIKE MY DAD.


CELL DID BECOME A DOCTOR, HE


MARRIED, HAD A DAUGHTER AND


LATER DIVORCED.


AS EACH YEAR PASSED, HE BECAME


MORE HOPELESS AND CONVINCED HE


WOULD NEVER CHANGE.


EVENTUALLY HE DECIDED ON


SUICIDE.


I THOUGHT THE WORLD WOULD BE


BETTER OFF WITHOUT ME.


CERTAINLY MY FAMILY WOULD HAVE


BEEN BETTER OFF.


MY DAUGHTER WOULD HAVE GOTTEN


A MILLION DOLLARS AND SHE WOULD


BE IN GREAT SHAPE.


THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.


THAT WAS MY MIND-SET.


SO, I WENT TO THE CLOSET AND PUT


A GUN TO MY MOUTH, I WAS GOING


TO SHOOT MYSELF.


MY, MY DAUGHTER WALKED IN.


I PUT THE GUN AWAY.


CELL FINALLY DECIDED HE


NEEDED PROFESSIONAL HELP.


HE WENT TO AN OUTPATIENT ALCOHOL


TREATMENT CENTER.


THERE HE FOUND A BIBLE.


I JUST PICKED IT UP AND


OPENED IT.


I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS


READING.


I COULDN'T READ.


I WAS -- I WAS HURTING SO BAD.


I GOT IN MY CAR AND I DROVE


AROUND.


I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS GOING


TO DO.


I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO LOST IN MY


LIFE.


I SCREAMED IN MY CAR, GOD HELP


ME, GOD HELP ME, AS LOUD AS I


COULD SCREAM.


SOMETHING HAPPENED.


A FEW DAYS LATER CELL TURNED


ON THE TV AND BEGAN TO WATCH


A CHRISTIAN PROGRAM.


IT WAS CALLED "THE 700 CLUB


CANADA."


I NEVER WATCHED THE SHOW OR PAID


ANY ATTENTION TO IT.


GORDON SAID IF YOU DIED TODAY


WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO SPEND


ETERNITY?


I COULDN'T ANSWER THAT QUESTION.


I HAD NO IDEA.


HE SAID IF YOU DON'T KNOW, PRAY


WITH ME.


CELL PRAYED TO RECEIVE JESUS


AS SAVIOR THAT DAY.


OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS AS HE


CONTINUED TO WATCH "THE 700 CLUB


CANADA," THE TRUTH OF GOD'S


FORGIVENESS BEGAN TO SINK IN.


IT GAVE ME A TREMENDOUS SENSE


OF PEACE.


I HEAR THIS, I KNOW SOME PEOPLE


MIGHT NOT BELIEVE IT, BUT I


PROMISE I WENT OUTSIDE AND


LOOKED AND THE SKY WAS BLUE AND


THE GRASS WAS GREEN.


THAT HADN'T BEEN THAT WAY IN A


LONG TIME.


ITS NOW HAS BEEN ALMOST


A DECADE SINCE CELL HAD PRAYED


TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN.


GOD SET ME FREE FROM THE


BONDAGE AND THE SLAVERY OF


ADDICTION.


IT WAS, I WAS -- I FULLY BELIEVE


I WAS DOING THINGS I DIDN'T WANT


TO DO.


THAT'S GONE.


I'M FREE OF THAT.


CELL'S RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS


DAD HAS BEEN RESTORED, TOO.


THEY ENJOY WORKING TOGETHER ON


PROJECTS AND SIMPLY DOING WHAT


FATHERS AND SONS ARE MEANT TO


DO.


MY DAD CALLED ME ONE DAY AND


SAID, DO YOU READ THE BIBLE?


I SAID, I DO.


I HAD TO SIT DOWN.


HE SAID, I FOUND A GUY ON


TELEVISION THAT HE READS A BIBLE


AND I LISTEN TO HIM.


I SAID, WHAT DO YOU HEAR?


HE SAID,


I'M SORRY.


FROM THAT DAY FORWARD, THAT WAS


ABOUT SEVEN YEARS AGO.


HE'S BEEN MY BEST FRIEND.


TODAY, CELL IS INVOLVED IN A


SUCCESSFUL MEDICAL PRACTICE AND


EVEN AUTHORED SEVERAL BOOKS.


BUT HE SAID ALL OF THAT MEANS


NOTHING WITHOUT THE FAITH THAT


MADE HIM INTO WHOLE PERSON.


I FOUND WHAT I WAS LOOKING


FOR.


I FOUND GOD.


I WAS SUBSTITUTING FOOTBALL,


MONEY, ALCOHOL, DRUGS FOR GOD.


I FOUND IT.


WELL, I SHOULD BE DEAD.


I SHOULD BE DEAD.


THERE'S NO REASON FOR ME TO BE


ON THIS EARTH.


OTHER THAN JUST THE ABSOLUTE


UNWAVERING KINDNESS OF JESUS


CHRIST.


WOW.


YOU KNOW WHAT?


THAT, THAT'S ALL THAT I CAN SAY,


WOW.


WOW -- BACKWARDS, FRONTWARDS


WHEN


YOU SEE WHAT GOD IS CAPABLE OF


DOING WHEN WE ONLY CRY OUT TO


HIM.


I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE PROBABLY


RIGHT NOW SAYING THAT ME, I'M IN


THE PLACE AS WELL.


DID YOU HEAR HOW CELL CRIED OUT,


GOD HELP ME NOW?


BEFORE THIS TIME IS OVER, I


BELIEVE THAT YOU NEED TO DO


THAT.


WHEN YOU'RE AT THE END OF


YOURSELF, YOU'RE AT THE


BEGINNING OF GOD.


YOU REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT


ANYBODY ELSE THINKS ABOUT YOU AS


WELL AND DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE


SAID?


HE SAID, I WANTED TO END MY LIFE


AND IT WAS ONLY BY HIS


DAUGHTER'S INTERVENTION, GOD


SENT HER IN THAT MOMENT AND GOD


DID A COMPLETE 180.


HE HAD DADDY ISSUES I WONDER IF


YOU HAVE THOSE DADDY ISSUES


AFTER A MOTHER WILL TEACH A GIRL


HOW TO BE A WOMAN.


A DAD WILL TEACH HER IT IS GOOD


TO BE A WOMAN.


A DAD WILL TEACH A BOY TO BE A


MAN, BUT A WOMAN WILL TEACH HIM


IT IS GOOD TO BE A MAN.


DADS HAVE SUCH A POWERFUL


INFLUENCE IN OUR LIVES.


DID YOU HEAR AT THE END?


DAD GOT SAVED AS WELL.


WATCHING A PREACHER ON


TELEVISION, JUST LIKE YOUR DOING


RIGHT NOW.


I GOT A WORD FOR YOU.


IF YOU DIE TODAY, DO YOU KNOW


WHERE YOU WILL SPEND YOUR


ETERNITY?


WELL.


IF IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS DARK


OUTSIDE, IT'S NOT BECAUSE GOD'S


LIGHT IS NOT SHINING.


IT IS BECAUSE YOU CLOSED YOUR


EYES.


LET ME OPEN YOUR EYES TO


SOMETHING.


THE BIBLE SAYS IN FIRST JOHN, WE


LOVE HIM BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED


US.


IT DIDN'T START WITH YOU.


IT WON'T END WITH YOU, BUT YOU


CAN MAKE THE CHOICE TO TURN IT


AROUND TODAY.


HMM, YOU KNOW, BRIAN, I'M


THINKING ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD,


IT SAYS THAT HE IS THE FATHER TO


THE FATHERLESS.


RIGHT NOW, GOD WANTS YOU TO KNOW


SOMETHING THAT WHEN YOUR DAD WAS


NOT THERE, WHEN HE WAS ABSENT


AND NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR


LIFE.


GOD SAW YOU AND CARED FOR YOU


AND HE FATHERED YOU, EVEN IN


SILENT MOMENTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW


HE WAS THERE.


IT IS A TOUGH THING THIS LIFE,


BECAUSE WE CAN'T SEE GOD, WE


CAN'T REALLY FEEL WITH HIM, NOT


WITH OUR FIVE SENSES.


WE CAN'T HEAR HIM, BUT HE IS


THERE.


WE CAN SEE THE AFFECTS OF HIM IN


OUR LIFE.


THINK BACK, MY FRIEND, THINK


BACK TO A FEW TIMES IN YOUR LIFE


WHERE YOU FELT YOU WERE ALL


ALONE.


THERE ARE LITTLE MIRACLES IN


YOUR LIFE THAT JUST GAVE YOU THE


COURAGE AND THE HOPE AND THE


STRENGTH TO KEEP ON GOING.


THAT WAS YOUR FATHER.


THAT WAS YOUR DAD.


THAT WAS, THAT WAS SOMEBODY WHO


LOVES YOU ABOVE AND BEYOND ALL


THAT YOU CAN IMAGINE.


HE IS A GOOD GOD TODAY AND


BRIAN, I KNOW THAT WHEN YOU'RE


IN THE MINISTRY YOU'RE DEALING


WITH THIS ALL OF THE TIME THERE.


IS A LOT OF ABSENT PARENTS OUT


THERE AND IT LEAVES THIS HOLE IN


OUR HEART, BUT GOD PROMISES THAT


HE IS A FATHER TO THE


FATHERLESS.


HE LOVES YOU.


HE HAS NEVER FORSAKEN YOU.


YOU ARE RIGHT.


LAURA-LYNN.


I HAVE INFORMATION I WOULD LOVE


TO PUT IN YOUR HANDS.


IT IS ON FORGIVENESS.


THIS IS WHAT CELL FOUND AND IT


CHANGED EVERYTHING IN HIS LIFE.


HE IS STILL PRACTICING MEDICINE


RIGHT NOW AND HE IS CLEAN AND


SOBER FROM THE DRUGS.


BUT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO


SOMETHING.


ONCE YOU MAKE THIS COMMITMENT


TODAY, TOMORROW YOU'RE GOING TO


HAVE THE SAME ONE DAY CLEAN AND


SOBER FROM SIN AND ALSO SUICIDE.


YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A PART OF


THE 357 CLUB, SUCKING A BULLET


OUT OF THE END.


THE WRONG END OF A GUN.


LET'S DO BUSINESS WITH GOD RIGHT


NOW.


HEY, WHY DON'T YOU CLASP YOUR


HANDS TOGETHER.


GOD, I'M A SINNER.


I'VE SINNED AGAINST YOU.


I'M MESSED UP, BUT I TURN AWAY


FROM MYSELF, IN THIS SICKNESS


AND I OPEN UP MY HEART.


I ASK YOU TO COME INTO MY LIFE.


TO MAKE ME THE MAN, THE WOMAN


YOU WANT ME TO BE.


IN JESUS' NAME.


CALL US RIGHT NOW AT THE


PRAYER LINE.


1-855-759-0700.


IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER WITH


BRIAN, GIVE US A CALL.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING WITH


YOU ALL AGAIN.


UNTIL NEXT TIME I'M


LAURA-LYNN TYLER THOMPSON.


I'M BRIAN WARREN.
