Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 9, 2012. Read Transcript



HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.


AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON, WELCOME TO THE SHOW.


WELL, LAURA LYNN, WE'RE IN


THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER, DO YOU


KNOW WHERE THAT COMES FROM?


I HAVE NO IDEA, SOMETHING TO


DO WITH ANIMALS.


SOMETHING ABOUT THAT, BUT IT


COMES FROM CHINESE TRADITION,


ASTRONOMERS WHO BELIEVE THAT


BECAUSE THE SERIOUS STAR


FOLLOWS THE SUN, KIND OF LIKE A


DOG FOLLOWING THE SUN, IT IS 20


DAYS BEFORE, 20 DAYS AFTER,


THAT'S HOW WE GET TO DOG DAYS


OF SUMMER, ESPECIALLY IN


SOUTHERN ONTARIO, ARE YOU


ENJOYING YOUR SUMMER?


IT NEEDS TO BE A LITTLE MORE


SUNNY OUT IN BRITISH COLUMBIA,


SOMETHING'S NOT GOING RIGHT.


WE'LL PRAY FOR THAT, THINK


ABOUT THIS, EVEN IN VANCOUVER,


RIGHT NOW IN BRITISH COLUMBIA,


THE FIRES ARE KEPT OUT OF BAY


AS LONG AS IT'S NOT TOO HOT,


WHEN SOMEONE'S GETTING RAIN, A


FARMER'S SMILING, AND SOMEONE


ELSE IS CRYING, WE HAVE TWO


AMAZING STORIES OF PEOPLE WHO


WERE ABLE TO GET THEIR LIVES


TURNED AROUND FOR TWO


COMPLETELY DIFFERENT REASONS.


BILLY HALL WAS A VIETNAM VET


WHO TURNED TO A LIFE OF CRIME,


YOU'LL SEE THE MIRACLE WHO GOT


HIM OUT OF A JAIL CELL.


ALSO ON TODAY'S SHOW, YOU'LL


SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN GOD


ENTERS INTO OUR LIFE, FOR RICK


AGULAIRE, GOD TOOK HIS NEED AWAY


FOR ANTIBIOTICS, IT WILL HELP


ANYONE WHO'S SUFFERING RIGHT


NOW.


I CONTINUE MY ONGOING SERIES


ON WHAT YOU BELIEVE, CANADA,


AND SHARE MY CONVERSATION WITH


ANDRE, A MAN WHO WAS LOST, BUT


FIRST, A MUCH NEEDED MIRACLE


FOR RICK AGULAIRE.


I HAD A THROAT ACHE AND IT


WAS KIND OF LIKE STARTED OUT


LIKE A SORE THROAT AND THEN


WHEN I WAS EATING SOMETHING, IT


FELT LIKE I COULDN'T GET IT


DOWN MY THROAT AND THEN THE


NEXT WEEK, IT GOT A LITTLE


TOUGHER TO EAT SOMETHING, AND


THEN IT GOT TOUGH TO SWALLOW,


AND SO I SAID, HEY, I'VE GOT TO


GO TO THE DOCTOR AND FIND OUT


WHAT'S GOING ON, SO I WENT TO


THE DOCTOR AND HE LOOKED AT MY


THROAT AND GAVE ME SOME


ANTIBIOTICS AND SAID, COME BACK


IN A WEEK OR TWO, SO I WENT


HOME AND MY WIFE AND I SAT DOWN


TO WATCH THE 700 CLUB WITH PAT


ROBERTSON, AND PAT CAME TO THE


END OF THE BROADCAST AND HE


SAYS --


THERE'S A CONSTRICTION IN


YOUR THROAT, YOU HAVE A HARD


TIME SEXUAL LOWING AND


SOMETHING IS SWELLED UP IN


THERE, GOD IS TAKING THE


SWELLING DOWN RIGHT NOW, TOUCH


YOUR NECK IN THE NAME OF JESUS,


BE MADE WHOLE.


IN THAT INSTANT, IN THAT


MOMENT, I FELT WARMTH IN MY


THROAT, I FELT TINGLING, BUT


THE MOST FABULOUS THING


IS I FELT HIS PRESENCE, HIS


GLORY, I FELT HIS LOVE, I FELT


HIS MAGNIFICENCE.


THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED THE


ANTIBIOTICS BUT WHEN I GOT HOME


THAT NIGHT AND GOD HEALED ME, I


DIDN'T EVEN NEED THE


ANTIBIOTICS AND IT WAS AMAZING,


IT REALLY WAS.


GOD IS JUST A MAGNIFICENT BEING.


YOU KNOW, AND WE HAVE THIS VEIL


OVER OUR EYES ALL OF THE TIME


BUT GOD CHOOSES TO TAKE THAT


VEIL OFF OF MY EYES AND


REVEAL HIS MAGNIFICENCE, AND


IT'S JUST ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.


SO TRUE, WHEN GOT REVEALS


HIMSELF TO US, IT IS ABSOLUTELY


BEAUTIFUL.


GOD HAS BEEN USING THE 700 CLUB


TO REACH INTO PEOPLE'S LIVES


FOR ALMOST 51 YEAR, WORDS OF


KNOWLEDGE JUST HOW YOU SAW


THERE, JESUS HEALED THE SICK


WHEN HE WAS HERE ON EARTH,


MATTHEW 423 SAID JESUS WENT


THROUGHOUT GALLEY PROCLAIMING


THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM


AND HEALING EVERY DISEASE AND


SICKNESS AMONG THE PEOPLE AND


HE IS STILL HEALING TODAY, HE


PROMISED HE WOULD IN JOHN 1412,


IT SAYS VERY TRULY I TELL YOU,


WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ME WILL DO


THE WORKS I HAVE BEEN DOING AND


THEY WILL DO GREATER THINGS


THAN THESE BECAUSE I AM GOING


TO THE FATHER, I KNOW WE HAVE


PRAYED FOR PEOPLE TO BE HEALED


AND IT HASN'T COME TO PASS, WE


HAVE TO LEAVE IT TO HIS


DISCRETION, BUT FAITH PLEASES


GOD AND IT CAN TURN HIS


ATTENTION ON TO YOUR SITUATION


SO FAST, YOU WON'T EVEN SEE IT


COMING, REMEMBER THE STORY IN


MATTHEW 8 FOR THE SERVANT TO BE


HEALED, JESUS SAID, I WILL COME


AND HEAL HIM, BUT THE CENTURION


CAME AND SAID, I AM NOT WORTHY


TO COME UNDER YOUR ROOF, IN


VERSE 10 WHEN JESUS HEARD IT,


HE MARVELED AND SAID TO THOSE


WHO FOLLOWED, I SAY TO YOU, I


HAVE NOT FOUND SUCH GREAT


FAITH, NOT EVEN IN ISRAEL,


VERSE 13 CONCLUDES, THEN JESUS


SAID TO THE CENTURION,


GO YOUR WAY AND JUST SO


YOU BELIEVED, SO LET IT BE DONE


FOR YOU AND HIS SERVANT WAS


HEALED AT THAT SAME HOUR, YOU


KNOW WHAT, BRIAN AND I ARE HERE


EVERY DAY BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN


THE POWER OF GOD, WE BELIEVE IN


THE POWER OF PRAYER, WE BELIEVE


HE IS ABLE TO INTERVENE AND


CHANGE YOUR SITUATION.


LET'S MAKE THIS REALLY HARD


ON GOD AND REALLY EASY ON US, I


REALLY BELIEVE THAT SOMEONE IN


YOUR STOMACH, THE WHOLE TIME


LAURA LYNN WAS TALKING, GOD IS


TOUCHING YOUR


STOMACH AND ALSO YOUR RIGHT


EYE, THANK YOU, HOLY SPIRIT, I


WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU RIGHT


NOW, I GOT SOME INFORMATION AS


FAITH, FAITH IS MERELY FOR


UNFORESAKING TRUTH IN HIM ONLY,


FATHER, I PRAY EVEN NOW THAT


YOU WOULD, LORD, IN THAT


PERSON'S GASTROINTESTINAL


SYSTEM, I PRAY THAT THE BLOOD


OF JESUS WOULD COME UPON IT


EVEN NOW, AND I ASK YOU WHEN


THEY'VE BE UNDER ATTACK, THE


LORD HAS CHOSE IN JERUSALEM


OFF OF THAT RIGHT EYE IN JESUS


NAME, AMEN.


AMEN, IF YOU PRAYED THAT


PRAYER OR IF YOU'RE HAVING


DIFFICULTIES IN THOSE AREAS,


CALL US RIGHT NOW AT


1-855-759-0700, PRAYER PARTNERS


ARE STANDING BY.


AMEN.


AMEN.


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?


YEAH.


DADDY, WHEN WE DIE, WILL WE


GO TO HEAVEN?


DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO


LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION?


CALL THE 700 CLUB, WE'LL HELP


YOU FIND ANSWERS TO THE


IMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIFE BRINGS


YOUR WAY.


THE PSALM IS DAVID, SEEMS TO


LIVE A GREAT LIFE AND HIS LIFE


WAS NOT EASY, HE WAS PURSUED BY


A MAN KING SOL WHO WANTED TO


KILL HIM WITH A SPEAR, GOD


MIRACULOUSLY PROTECTED HIM, GOD


DECLARES, IT IS GOD WHO ARMS


ME, HE MAKES MY FEET LIKE A


FEET OF A DEER, HE TRAINS MY


HANDS FOR BATTLE, MY ARMS CAN


BEND A BOW OF BRONZED, YOU GIVE


ME YOUR SHIELD OF VICTORY AND


YOUR RIGHT HAND SUSTAINS ME,


YOUR STOOP DOWN TO MAKE ME


GREAT, WOW, I LOVE WHAT THIS


SAYS, THAT GOD WOULD STOOP DOWN


TO MAKE US GREAT.


THAT'S A CRAZY THOUGHT.


I AM AMAZED THAT GOD WOULD


REGARD MANKIND SO INCREDIBLY,


THAT HE WOULD REACH DOWN FROM


THE HEAVENS TO RADICALLY AND


BEAUTIFULLY TURN OUR LIVES INTO


MASTERPIECES, SINCE THE DAYS OF


KING DAVID TO THIS VERY DAY AND


THIS VERY MOMENT, GOD DELIGHTS


IN MAKING YOUR LIFE INCREDIBLE.


HE SEARCHES FAR AND WIDE TO


FIND THAT PERSON THAT WILL


TRUST IN HIS FAITHFULLY SO HE


WITH POUR OUT HIS ABUNDANT


FAVOR AND BLESSING OVER THEIR


LIFE, THE REASON DAVID ALLUDED


TO BE LIKE A DEER WHO STANDS ON


THE HEIGHTS IS THAT A DEER CAN


BE IN PRECARIOUS, HAZARDOUS


ISOLATED PLACES AND YET THEY


WILL NOT FALL, IN THE AMPLIFIED


BIBLE, THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH,


MY PERSONAL BRAVERY, MY


INVINCIBLE ARMY, HE WILL MAKE


ME TO WALK, NOT TO STAND STILL


IN TERROR BUT TO WALK AND MAKE


SPIRITUAL PROGRESS AMONG MY


HIGH PLACES OF TROUBLE AND


RESPONSIBILITY, THERE IS NO


DOUBT WE ALL FIND OURSELVES IN


TREACHEROUS PLACES, WE FACE


CIRCUMSTANCES THAT MAKE


OURSELVES FEEL LIKE WE'RE IN A


PERILOUS CLIFF, HOWEVER, GOD


HAS EQUIPPED US WITH STURDY


FEET LIKE A DEER, WE'RE


ABSOLUTELY SECURE THAT WE WILL


NOT FALL, DEER'S FEET, THEY'RE


LIKE TWO BIG THICK TOENAILS,


THE FRONT FEET ARE IDEAL IN


PIVOTING ON IDEAL TERRAIN,


THESE ARE ASSURING YOU THAT GOD


HAS EQUIPPED YOU PHYSICALLY,


SPIRITUALLY AND MENTALLY FOR


THE CALL OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE,


YOUR ENEMY WILL SAY YOU'RE


UNWORTHY, DISQUALIFIED AND NOT


GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE JOB,


HOWEVER, GOD, HE PROMISES HIS


UNWAVERING SHIELD OF PROTECTION


AND HIS SWORD OF THE SPIRIT


THAT WILL GO BEFORE YOU THROUGH


EVERY SINGLE BATTLE.


THERE MAY BE SITUATIONS THAT


SEEM UNBEARABLE AT THE TIME, IT


FEELS LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE


YOUR FOOTING, YOUR SANITY, YOUR


GRIP ON REALITY, BUT YOU WERE


CREATED TO BE POWERFUL AND TO


OVERCOME ANY OBSTACLE IN THE


NAME OF JESUS, GOD'S GOT YOUR


BACK, HE WILL HEM YOU IN BEFORE


AND BEHIND, YOU'RE FACING THE


TOUGHEST STORM IN YOUR LIFE BUT


YOU ARE FULLY EQUIPPED TO


HANDLE IT, GOD IS RIGHT THERE


TO SEE YOU THROUGH.


AMEN, AND LAURA LYNN, THAT'S


EXACTLY WHERE THE BIBLE SAYS


THIS, GO WITH TERRY, THE


[INAUDIBLE] SLOWLY, STEADILY,


SURELY, YOU CAN TRUST IN


YOURSELVES BUT THE JUST SHALL


LIVE THAT DAY.


YOU KNOW, FAITH IS WE ME, TODAY


THE GRACE OF GOD IS AVAILABLE


FOR YOU, HIS FUNCTION IS TO


[INAUDIBLE], YOU'RE GOING TO


MAKE IT THROUGH THIS, FATHER, I


PRAY NOW, I ASK FOR THE BLOOD


OF JESUS COME UPON THEM, THEY


WILL MOVE AND HAVE A GREAT


TESTAMENT [INAUDIBLE] IN JESUS


NAME.


WELL, LAURA LYNN HAS AN


ENCOUNTER WITH ANDRE.


ARE YOU VISITED HERE?


I LIVE HERE.


YOU LIVE HERE?


WHY IF YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS,


WHY AREN'T YOU PRAYING MORE AND


MAKING IT MORE LIKE A FOCUS IN


YOUR LIFE?


I'M KIND OF LOST RIGHT NOW,


I MEAN, --


WHY?


I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE BECAUSE


I'M OLDER AND I HAVE MORE


OBSTACLES TO GO WITH.


I THOUGHT THAT WHEN WE GET


OLDER, I WAS HOPING WE GET


SMARTER AND THAT' WERE NOT SO


LOST.


WELL, MAYBE WHEN I GET MORE


OLDER, YES, BUT RIGHT NOW, I'M


KIND OF IN A STAGE OF NO


DOUBTING BUT --


SO, WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO


MOVE YOU FROM BEING SOMEONE WHO


REALLY ISN'T FOCUSING ON JESUS


BEING THE VERY CENTER OF YOUR


LIFE TO MAKING HIM MORE


SIGNIFICANT IN YOUR LIFE, WHAT


WOULD IT TAKE?


YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHAT I WAS


ALWAYS WONDERING, WHAT MAKES ME


-- I THINK THAT'S THE LIFE, ALL


UP AND DOWN WITH BELIEF, I


THINK JUST, YOU KNOW --


ANDRE, WHAT IF GOD WANTED TO


DIVINELY INTERSECT YOUR LIFE


TODAY?


I STILL BELIEVE THAT WHEN I


FEEL LONELY OR BAD OR I'M IN A


BAD SITUATION, I KNOW HE'S WITH


ME ALWAYS.


YES.


CAN I DO A QUICK PRAYER FOR YOU?


YES, I WOULD LOVE TO.


I PRAY THAT YOU WOULD


DIVINELY TOUCH ANDRE TODAY AND


HIS LIFE WOULD BE CHANGED, I


PRAY IN GEES SIS NAME THAT YOU


WOULD INTERCEPT HIS LIFE AND


EVEN THROUGH THIS CONVERSATION,


HE WOULD REALIZE THAT YOU WERE


CALLING TO HIM AND YOU HAVE A


PLAN AND A DESTINY THAT IS SO


OUTRAGEOUS AND AMAZING, IT'S


ABOVE AND BEYOND ALL THAT HE


COULD ASK OR THINK, I PRAY HE


WOULD MAKE YOU A CENTER AND A


FOCUS FROM THIS DAY ON, WE


THANK YOU JESUS THAT YOU'RE A


GOD OF MERE LS, IN JESUS NAME,


AMEN.


ISN'T THAT GREAT?


YEAH, THAT'S GREAT.


WHO SENT YOU, JESUS?


I THINK JESUS DID SEND ME,


ANDRE?


YOU KNOW, THAT WAS A LOT OF


FUN BEING AT THE BEACH AND IT'S


BEEN A LOT OF FUN DOING THESE


SHOOTS AND MEETING REAL


CANADIANS AND SEEING WHAT THEY


GO THROUGH.


I KNOW YOU TRAVEL A FAIR BIT,


BRIAN, IF EVER YOU'RE IN AN


AIRPORT, IT'S INTERESTING TO


SEE PEOPLE GOING BY AND YOU


WONDER WHAT THEIR STORY IS, I


ALWAYS WONDER, WHAT'S THAT


PERSON GOING THROUGH, ON THIS


DAY, I WAS ABLE TO ASK ANDRE,


WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOU, AND


HE SAID, I'M LOST, I DON'T KNOW


WORDS THAT I DO BELIEVE IN


JESUS BUT I'M JUST LOST.


SOMETIMES ALL IT TAKES IS WHERE


WE ARE RIGHT NOW AND PURSUING


GOD WITH MORE PASSION AND JUST


A DECISION, JUST A SIMPLE


DECISION TO PUT GOD FIRST.


YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE THINGS


THAT I LOVE IS HIS HONESTY AND


I SAW THE SWEETNESS IN HIM.


I'M GOING TO ASK YOU, WOULD YOU


PRAY FOR ANDRE, WOULD YOU PRAY


FOR HIM ALL THIS WEEK BECAUSE


HE SAID HE'S LOST, I DON'T


BELIEVE HE'S LOST, I BELIEVE


THAT'S WHAT GAVE THAT MOMENT

WELCOME BACK.


UP NEXT, BILLY HALL'S LIFE


SENTENCE BEHIND BAR IS


MYSTERIOUSLY REVERSED


I WAS DEAD, I WAS DEAD, I


WAS FINISHED, MY LIFE WAS AT AN


END, AND THERE WAS NO HOPE FOR


ME.


BILLY HALL SURVIVED THREE


TOURS OF DUTY IN VIETNAM BUT


HIS DARKEST MOMENTS WERE YET TO


COME, ALONE BEHIND BARS IN


FOLSOM PRISON.


I WAS A DEAD MAN WALKING, I


WAS A GUY WAITING TO DIE.


HIS TROUBLES STARTED SHORTLY


AFTER HE LEFT THE MARINE, BILLY


COULDN'T FIND WORK TO SUPPORT


HIS YOUNG FAMILY.


I HAD TO BE THE ALL AMERICAN


DAD, THE PERFECT DAD BECAUSE


I'M A MARINE.


I WAS SO DESPERATE, YOU KNOW, I


WOULD RUN OUT OF MONEY, WE


DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY ANYMORE


AND NO CAR AND IT WAS JUST A


REAL DIFFICULT TIME FOR OUR


FAMILY.


IN DESPERATION, HE STARTED


PLANNING AND COMMITTING ARMED


ROBBERIES.


I JUSTIFIED IT BY SAYING


THIS IS A MISSION, THIS IS MY


INTEL, THIS IS WHAT WE'RE GOING


TO DO, THIS IS HOW WE'RE GOING


TO DO IT, HOLDING PEOPLE


HOSTAGE, TYING THEM UP, TAKING


THEM IN A BACK ROOM AND THEN


GOING INTO THE SAFE AND GETTING


THE MONEY OUT OF THE SAFE AND


IF OTHER PEOPLE HAD TO BE


DEPRIVED OF WHAT THEY HAD, THEN


THAT JUST WAS THE END THAT


JUSTIFIED THE MEANS.


BILLY GOT AWAY WITH SEVERAL


ARMED ROBBERIES, BUT SECRETLY,


HE HOPED HE WOULD GET CAUGHT.


I FEEL LIKE THIS RUN AWAY


FREIGHT TRAIN, NO BRICKS, AND


I'M SPEEDING DOWN THIS TRACK


AND I CAN'T QUIT, WHEN I'M


DOING ONE ROBBERY, I'M THINKING


ABOUT THE FUTURE ROBBERY, I'M


PLANNING OTHERS AND I CAN'T


STOP THIS, MY MIND IS


CONSTANTLY GOING, I CAN'T STOP.


EVENTUALLY, BILLY


WAS CAUGHT AND ARRESTED, DUE TO


THE VIOLENT NATURE OF HIS


CRIMES, HE WAS SENTENCED TO 9


CONSECUTIVE FIVE TO LIFE TERMS,


THE REALITY OF LIFE BEHIND BARS


SUNK IN AS HE ENTERED FOLSOM


PRISON.


THAT OPPRESSION, THAT SENSE


OF CONTROL, THAT LACK OF


IDENTITY, YOU DON'T HAVE A NAME


ANYMORE, YOU'RE A NUMBER,


B63934, THAT WAS MY NAME, AND


YOU'RE A PROPERTY OF THE STATE


AND I'M THINKING, ONE DAY, I'M


GOING TO DIE IN THIS CELL.


IF I DIE AN OLD MAN, I DIE


ALONE, ALONE, NOBODY'S THERE.


THAT WAS THE EMPTIEST TIME OF


MY LIFE.


HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY


ABANDONED HIM, ALONE WITH HIS


THOUGHTS, BILLY COULD ONLY


THINK OF ONE WAY OUT.


WHY DON'T YOU JUST KILL


YOURSELF, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING


FOR, YOU'RE GOING TO DIE


ANYWAY, WHY WAIT, WHY NOT DO IT


RIGHT NOW, AND TO KILL OURSELVES


THERE, WE WOULD GRAB THE BARS


AND BEAT OUR HEAD INTO THE BARS


UNTIL BLOOD HEMORRHAGED AND WE


WOULD DIE.


WELL, I WAS GETTING READY TO


BEAT MY HEAD IN THE BARS THAT


NIGHT AND THERE WAS ANOTHER


VOICE THAT CAME, AND THAT VOICE


WAS, I LOVE YOU, BILLY, I


REMEMBER THOSE WORDS SO


CLEARLY, I LOVE YOU, BILLY.


I DIDN'T LOVE MYSELF, PEOPLE


DIDN'T LOVE ME, MY LETTERS THAT


I WROTE WERE RETURNED TO


SENDER, THEY WEREN'T EVEN


OPENED, MY LETTERS, NOBODY


LOVED ME.


GOD, IF YOU'RE FOR REAL, DO


SOMETHING IN MY LIFE BECAUSE


I'M AFRAID TO DIE.


I WANT PEACE IN MY LIFE, JUST


GIVE ME PEACE IN MY LIFE.


I WENT TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT AND


WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE MORNING,


MAN, I STILL HAD 9 LIFE


SENTENCES, I WAS STILL IN


FOLSOM PRISON, I WAS STILL


WALKING FIVE STEPS ONE WAY AND


7 THE OTHER WAY, AND YET THERE


WAS BRAND NEW INSIDE OF ME,


SOMETHING HAPPENED INSIDE OF ME


AND I DISCOVERED THAT IT WAS


GOD COMING INTO ME, IT WASN'T


THE GOD THAT I KNEW FROM


EXPERIENCE OF OTHER PEOPLE, NOW


I KNOW YOU, LORD, I KNOW YOU,


GOD, YOU'RE FOR REAL, YOU'RE


HERE IN ME, HE'S HERE, HE'S


REAL, HE'S FRESH AND I'M FREE,


I'M FREE.


HE CHANGED ME FROM THE INSIDE,


NOT THE OUTSIDE.


TWO YEARS INTO HIS SENTENCE,


HE WAS CALLED TO THE WARDEN'S


OFFICE.


WENT TO THE OFFICE AND SAT


DOWN AND HE SAYS, B63934, WE'RE


SENDING YOU HOME IN 6 MONTHS,


AND I COULDN'T EVEN TALK, MY


MOUTH WAS JUST MOVING BUT TEARS


WERE COMING DOWN MY EYE, I WAS


STUNNED.


I HAVEN'T EVEN REACHED THE


FIRST MINIMUM, FIVE YEARS, WHAT


THE WARDEN DID, HE TOOK THAT


PAROLE DATE AND SENT IT TO THE


GOVERNOR OF CALIFORNIA AND


ASKED THE GOVERNOR TO APPROVE


IT BECAUSE THE PAROLE BOARD


WOULDN'T APPROVE IT.


THE GATE OPENED AND I FELT


MYSELF STEPPING OUT OF A GRAVE


INTO LIFE AND IT REALLY DOES


SMELL DIFFERENT, THE AIR


OUTSIDE THOSE PRISON WALLS.


TO THIS DAY, HE WASN'T KNOW


WHY THE WARDEN SECURED HIS


RELEASE BUT HE BELIEVES IT WAS


A MIRACLE.


ALL THE THINGS THE DEVIL


USED AGAINST ME GOD USES


AGAINST HIM, HE PUTS HIS HOLY


GHOST SPIN ON ALL OF THAT SHAME


AND REGRET AND BRINGS A


MINISTRY OUT OF IT.


BILLY HAS SPENT MUCH OF HIS


NEW LIFE AS A MINISTRY IN


ETHIOPIA.


IT'S BEEN ONE MIRACLE AFTER


ANOTHER MIRACLE TAKING ME DOWN


THIS PATH AND FOLLOWING HIM


INTO THE UNKNOWN, WALKING IN


THE GOD OF MIRACLES EVERY DAY,


HOLDING HIS HAND, WALKING UNDER


HIS SMILE, IT DOESN'T GET ANY


BETTER.


ISN'T IT AMAZING HOW GOD IS


ABLE TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE AND


HE STILL DOES THE IMPOSSIBLE


TODAY AS WELL.


HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE YOUR


LIFE WAS SO FAR GONE THAT THERE


WAS NOTHING POSSIBLE THAT


ANYONE COULD DO?


DID YOU HEAR WHAT BILLY SAID,


HE LITERALLY SAID, I'M GOING TO


KILL MYSELF, BUT THE WAY THEY


DO IT IS THEY BANG THEIR HEADS


ON THE BARS.


YOU KNOW, THAT REALLY RESOUNDED


IN MY HEART AS WELL BECAUSE I


BELIEVE THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE


NOT BANGING THEIR HEAD ON THE


BARS BUT BANGING THEIR HEAD


AGAINST THE PROVERBIAL WALL AND


YOU'RE SAYING, GOD, I CAN'T DO


THIS ANY LONGER, AND I BELIEVE


THAT GOD HAS ALSO A PLAN TO


TURN YOUR LIFE AROUND IN THIS


MOMENT, THERE WAS A MAN IN THE


BIBLE THAT IT SAYS IN AXE,


CHAPTER 3, AND THIS IS AFTER


JESUS DIED AND WAS RAISED FROM


THE DEAD IN HEAVEN AND THE


BIBLE SAID HE WAS A LAYING MAN,


IT SAYS THIS MAN PETER, THE MAN


WHO RAN AWAY FROM GOD LIKE


BILLY, VIETNAM AND HE COMES


BACK AND SAYS THIS IS ANOTHER


MISSION, I'M USING THIS AS AN


OPPORTUNITY TO DO BY INTEL AND


EVERYTHING AND I'M GOING AFTER


-- HE BECAME A NOTORIOUS BANK


ROBBER, LIKE PETER, THAT TUNED


HIM AROUND, AND PETER LOOKS AT


THIS MAN AND HE SAYS, YOU KNOW


WHAT, I WAS A FAILURE ONCE,


SILVER AND GOLD I HAVE NOT, BUT


WHAT I HAVE, I GIVE IN THE NAME


OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH


LIVE, RISE UP AND WALK, I


BELIEVE GOD IS CALLING YOU TO


RISE UP AT THIS VERY MOMENT AS


LAURA LYNN COMES IN.


YOU KNOW, BRIAN, I'M


THINKING ABOUT SOMEONE OUT


THERE AND THEY KNOW THEY'VE


WALKED THROUGH SOME REAL


FAILURE AND THINK THERE'S NO


HOPE BUT GOD IS BRINGING SOME


FRESH WIND INTO YOUR SPIRIT,


THE CALL THAT YOU FEEL RIGHT


NOW IS THE CALL THAT YOU FELT


WHEN YOU WERE A LITTLE KID, GOD


PUT SOMETHING IN YOUR HEART, A


DREAM, PUT SOMETHING THERE, GOD


IS SAYING TO YOU, YOU WERE


MEANT FOR GREATNESS, IT'S NOT


OVER UNTIL IT'S OVER AND THAT


ISN'T UNTIL WE'RE IN HEAVEN,


GOD HAS HAD A CALL ON YOU, HE


IS GOING TO RAISE YOU UP AND


GIVE YOU THAT FIRM FOUNDATION,


HE WILL RESTORE YOU TO THE


PLACE AND TO THE DIGNITY FOR


WHICH YOU ARE CALLED TO BE,


BRIAN, WE CAN NEVER DISQUALIFY


OURSELVES WHEN GOD HAS ALREADY


QUALIFIED OFF, WITHOUT HIS


ADOPTION INTO HIS FAMILY, WHEN


WE ACCEPT THAT THE CROSS


COVERED ALL OF IT AND WE ARE


FREE TO WALK INTO A NEW PLACE.


THAT'S WHY FORGIVENESS --


WE'RE GOING TO PRAY RIGHT NOW


BECAUSE GOD WANTS TO DO A WORK


IN YOU.


YOU KNOW, THE DEVIL SHOULD


HAVE KILLED YOU WHEN HE HAD A


CHANCE BECAUSE NOW WATCH


THROUGH GOD, YOU'RE A WILD


WOMAN OR MAN FOR GOD, PRAY THIS


PRAYER, JESUS, I AM A SINNER,


I'M A SOLDIER, BUT I TURN AWAY


FROM MY WAY OF DOING THINGS AND


I INVITE YOU, I GIVE YOU MY


PERSONAL PERMISSION FOR YOUR


HEAVENLY INTERVENTION, I


BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT YOU


ARE LORD AND I RECEIVE YOU AS


MY LORD AND SAVIOR IN JESUS


NAME, AMEN.


IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER


WITH BRIAN, CALL US AT


1-855-759-0700, WE LOOK FORWARD


TO BEING WITH YOU ALL AGAIN.
