Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 30, 2012. Read Transcript



HELLO.


I'M BRIAN WARREN.


I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON.


WELCOME TO TODAY'S SHOW.


YOU KNOW, LAURA-LYNN, I THINK


IT HAS BEEN PROBABLY AROUND 72


HOURS SINCE WE SEEN EACH OTHER


LAST.


WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON?


A LOT HAPPENS IN 72 HOURS.


WELL, I'VE BEEN ON A PLANE,


I'LL TELL YOU THAT, BRIAN.


HUH-UH, IS THAT LIKE JOHN


CANDY, PLANES, TRAINS AND


AUTOMOBILES?


IT IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE THAT,


THAT'S BEEN MY LIFE LATELY.


YOU KNOW, I'M BECOMING A PLANE


SNOB.


I USED TO LOVE TO GET ON


A PLANE, SIT DOWN BESIDES


SOMEBODY AND TALK TO THEM AND


THE ENTIRE TRIP.


I FIND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE.


I WOULD BE LIKE YOUR PERSONAL


NIGHTMARE.


IT WOULD BAD ENOUGH YOU HAVE TO


TALK TO ME HERE FOR A NEW


MINUTES A DAY, NEVER MIND ON AN


ENTIRE PLANE TRIP.


DID YOU BAKE A BREATH?


I TOOK A BREATH AND A LADY


SAT BESIDE ME.


I HAVE LEARNED TO KICK BACK AND


USE THE TIME FOR MYSELF.


I TALK TO GOD, I LISTEN TO SOME,


YOU KNOW, SOME STUFF ON MY


iPOD, BUT THIS WOMAN JUST


STARTED TALKING AND WE SHARED.


WE TALKED ABOUT MARRIAGE AND


RELATIONSHIP AND KIDS.


IT IS BEAUTIFUL, NOW SHE IS MY


facebook FRIEND.


UH-HUH.


YOU KNOW WHAT?


THOSE FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS


INTERESTING.


VERY TRICKY, LAURA-LYNN.


ON TODAY'S SHOW, YOU WILL SEE


HOW POWERFUL LOVE CAN BE.


NOT JUST ON PLANES, BUT ALSO


WE'LL SEE THE STORY OF BOB AND


AUDREY.


THESE BIBLE COLLEGE SWEETHEARTS


FOLLOWED THE CALL INTO MINISTRY,


WHICH LED THEM TO 17 YEARS OF


SHARING GOD'S LOVE OVER-THE-AIR


WAVES.


THAT ALL CAME TO A SUDDEN


HALT WHEN AUDREY SHARED WITH BOB


A VERY DARK SECRET THAT SHE KNEW


COULD TEAR THEIR LIVES A PART.


SHE DIDN'T KNOW IT AT THE TIME,


BUT SHARING HER SECRET WAS ONLY


THE BEGINNING OF A WILD RIDE


THAT THEY WERE ABOUT TO EMBARK


ON.


THAT STORY IS COMING UP SHORTLY.


SECRETS ARE ALWAYS TRICKY.


A FEW MONTHS AGO JEREMY LIN


CAPTURED THE HEARTS OF NEW YORK


LOVERS AND SPORTS FAN AROUND THE


GLOBE AND WE CAPTURED HIS


INCREDIBLE JOURNEY AND HOW


JEREMY FEELS FAITH IS THE KEY TO


HIS SUCCESS.


THIS IS JEREMY LIN'S WILD RIDE


TO WHAT HAS BEEN COINED


LINSANITY.


CALL IT LINSANITY.


NUMBER 17, JEREMY LIN HAS NEW


YORK KNICKS FANS AND PLAYERS


CHEERING AGAIN.


I'VE SEEN IT EVERYWHERE, I


HAVE SEEN IT EVEN BACK HOME.


I'M FROM THE WEST COAST.


SO IT IS SWEEPING THE NATION.


THE NEW YORK PHENOMENA WHO


HAS THE KNICKS ON A WINNING


STREAK GREW UP IN CALIFORNIA.


GRADUATED FROM HARVARD AND IS


THE FIRST AMERICAN BORN PLAYER


OF TAIWANESE DESCENT IN THE NBA.


IT'S HUGE BACK IN TAIWAN.


PEOPLE ARE CRAZY ABOUT HIM RIGHT


NOW.


EVERYWHERE YOU SEE ON TV,


INTERNET, RADIO STATIONS,


NEWSPAPERS.


HE'S HUGE.


PLAYING THE GAME IS A DREAM


COME TRUE FOR THE 23-YEAR-OLD.


GOD IS FAITHFUL.


HE PUT US ON HIS UNBELIEVABLE


JOURNEY.


WE'RE JUST TRYING TO ENJOY


EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW.


AT 6'3", THE NEW NBA PLAYER


STILL SLEEPS ON THIS BROTHER'S


COUCH IN NEW YORK.


HE WENT UNDRAFTED UNTIL INJURIES


PLAGUED THE KNICKS AND THE COACH


GAVE HIM A SHOT.


HE'S JUST A SOLID GUARD.


YOU KNOW, HE'S, HE'S WALKING


AROUND HERE.


HE HASN'T CHANGED.


HE'S THE SAME GUY THAT CAME HERE


EARLIER, FIGHTING FOR A TEN DAY


CONTRACT.


LIN NOW HAS A GUARANTEED


CONTRACT, BUT A HEART THAT


REMAINS AS HUMMABLE AS IT WAS


BEFORE ALL OF THE LINSANITY


ERUPTED.


BASICALLY JUST TRY TO TRUST


IN GOD AND HAVE FAITH IN WHAT


EVER CIRCUMSTANCES THAT I'M


GOING THROUGH.


TRY TO GROW AS A PERSON AND


LEARN AND, BECOME TOUGHER.


ALSO AT THE SAME TIME GROW IN MY


RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.


THAT'S WHAT I TRY TO FOCUS ON


WHEN I'M IN A TOUGH TIME.


CBN NEWS.


[ MUSIC ]


SO COOL.


LINSANITY.


YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT TO APOLOGIZE,


LAURA-LYNN TO ALL OF THE RAPTORS


FAN, I'M RIDING THE LINSANITY, I


HAVE HIS POM-POMS ON, ONE OF THE


THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THIS, GOD


WILL PUT A PLATFORM THERE FOR


A PERSON WHO HAS A HARD TIME, HE


WILL PREPARE A PLATFORM.


THAT'S WHAT WE SEE WITH JEREMY


LIN.


I HOPE,BECAUSE CFL IS STARTING


RIGHT NOW.


THAT YOUNG GUYS ARE COMING BACK.


YOU KNOW, I KNOW THEY ARE MOVING


INTO A PLACE.


I PRAY THAT YOU LOOK AT THIS AND


LET JEREMY AND HIS EXAMPLE BE AN


EXAMPLE TO YOU ABOUT NOT BEING


AFRAID.


I SEE TIM TEBOW THESE DAYS AND


SEE THE OUTSPOKENNESS OF


ATHLETES AND THIS REALLY MAKES


MY HEART GLAD TO SEE THESE YOUNG


GUYS.


I KNOW BEING IN PROFESSIONAL


ATHLETICS.


WE HAVE A NAME FOR THAT, IT IS


LIKE THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT.


I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT


THAT IS -- BUT WHAT THEY ARE


SHOWING IS MY SOUL IS NOT FOR


SALE BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN BOUGHT


BY THE LAMB OF GOD.


THAT'S GOOD NEWS FOR BUSINESS


MEN AND BUSINESS WOMEN WHO ARE


WATCHING AS WELL.


I HOPE THAT YOU GET NOT THIS


LINSANITY, BUT CHRISTSANITY


INSIDE OF YOU.


BECAUSE THAT'S IT.


AND I LOVE THE PART OF THE


STORY WHERE, YOU KNOW, HE KEPT


ON TRYING.


HE WAS KIND OF REJECTED.


THEY WOULDN'T REALLY GIVE HIM


A SHOT.


HE WAS HOPING FOR TEN DAYS AND


NOW HE HAS A CONTRACT.


GOD HAS A WAY OF STEERING


US THIS


WAY AND THAT WAY.


RIGHT INTO AN AMAZING DESTINY.


6'3" IS NOT REALLY BIG IN THE


NBA.


SO, HE'S REALLY HAS TO HAVE --


BE OUTSPOKEN.


WELL, UP NEXT, A WOMAN AFRAID


OF HER HUSBAND STANDS BEFORE HIM


WITH NEWS THAT SHE'S BEEN


CHEATING.


WE HAD THE KIND OF MARRIAGE


THAT PEOPLE WOULD LOOK AT AND GO


I WANT A MARRIAGE LIKE THAT WHEN


I GROW UP.


WE LOVED TO BE TOGETHER AND


LOVED EVERYTHING THAT WE DID.


WE WERE LEADERS IN CHURCH.


WE WERE LEADERS IN OUR WHOLE


CITY.


BOB AND AUDREY MET IN BIBLE


COLLEGE.


WE WOULD TALK ABOUT


EVERYTHING ALL OF THE TIME.


JUST SHARING OUR LIVES AND


DREAMS AND HOPES TOGETHER.


I WAS COMPLETELY


ENTHRALLED BY HER.


I FELT SO SAFE WITH BOB,


BECAUSE HE LOVED GOD.


I FELT THAT I COULD LOVE HIM


FOREVER.


THEY MARRIED, STARTED


A FAMILY AND DOVE INTO MINISTRY


WORK.


THEY HAD BIG DREAMS FOR THE


FUTURE.


WITH OUR DESIRES TO BE WORLD


CHANGERS, WHAT YOU GOT TO DO IS


WORK.


WE WERE PACKING THE CHURCH


AND ALSO WORKING FOR MY MOM AND


DAD AND OUR TV MINISTRY.


I HAD NO IDEA HOW HARD IT


WOULD BE.


A FEW MONTHS INTO THE


MARRIAGE, AUDREY REALIZED THAT


BOB'S COMMUNICATION STYLE WAS


COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.


HE COULD EASILY CONFRONT ME


IF SOMETHING WAS WRONG.


I MADE A VOW IN MY HEART, I'M


GOING TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE


SO HE WILL NEVER YELL AT ME


AGAIN.


I BECAME THE ULTIMATE PERFORMER


AND THE ULTIMATE PLEASER.


BY NOW THEY WERE HOSTING


THEIR OWN TELEVISION PROGRAM.


THE HARD WORK OF MINISTRY TOOK


A TOLL ON AUDREY.


WHO WAS AFRAID TO SPEAK UP.


THE BUSIEST GOT SO TIRING AND


SO EXHAUSTING.


SO, I REMEMBER STUFFING DOWN


THOSE FEELINGS, BECAUSE I KNEW


BOB LOVED THE CHURCH.


I COULD NEVER TELL HIM HOW I


REALLY FELT.


THIS CONTINUED FOR YEARS AND


THEN A FAMILY FRIEND FROM CHURCH


BEGAN SPENDING MORE TIME WITH


THEM.


HE WAS EXTREMELY ENERGETIC


AND PLAYFUL AND LIKED TO BE WITH


OUR KIDS.


HE WAS FUN.


HE WAS YOUNG AND HE REMINDED ME


OF BEING A KID AGAIN.


HE DIDN'T HAVE A FAMILY.


IT WAS VERY NATURAL, AT THE


BEGINNING.


WE WOULD INVITE HIM TO BE IN


HOLIDAYS WITH US AND SO FORTH.


BUT THIS NEW FAMILY FRIEND


BEGAN GIVING MORE ATTENTION TO


AUDREY.


HE WOULD OVERLY FLIRT WITH


ME, YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL.


I WANT TO FIND SOMEONE IN THIS


WORLD WHO COULD BE HALF AS


AMAZING AS YOU.


SOMETHING IN MY HEART GRAVITATED


TOWARDS THAT.


I THOUGHT THAT'S WHAT I NEED.


OVERTIME THEIR RELATIONSHIP


GREW CLOSER.


I KNEW SOMETHING CHANGED IN


MY HEART WHEN I KNEW THAT HE WAS


COMING OVER AND I WANTED TO LOOK


REALLY GOOD WHEN HE GOT THERE.


I FELT I WAS IN CONTROL.


I FELT THAT I COULD HAVE


A RELATIONSHIP WITH A YOUNG GUY


IN A CHURCH AND JUST HELP HIM


OUT.


I HAD NO REASON, YOU KNOW, TO


DOUBT HER LOVE FOR ME, I MEAN,


WE WERE STILL EXTREMELY INTIMATE


WITH EACH OTHER.


LOVING WITH EACH OTHER.


SO, I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS


FINE.


BUT AUDREY'S DESIRE FOR THE


OTHER MAN GREW STRONGER.


YOU KNOW OUR SHOULDERS


WOULD BUMP OR HIS HANDS WOULD


TOUCH MINE AND WOULD NOTICE MY


REACTION.


I WAS LIKE, OH, THAT FELT GOOD


THAT HE TOUCHED ME.


I REALLY TOLD MYSELF I CAN HAVE


IT ALL.


THIS RELATIONSHIP WILL NOT


AFFECT THE REST OF MY LIFE.


I BEGAN TO NOTICE MYSELF LYING


SO THAT I COULD BE ALONE WITH


HIM.


I DOVE IN, I HAVE GONE THIS FAR


ANYWAY.


I'M GOING TO DO THIS.


THAT'S WHEN IT BECAME SEXUAL.


OUR RELATIONSHIP BECAME SEXUAL.


THE AFFAIR CONTINUED FOR


THREE WEEKS.


JUST LIED TO THE PEOPLE I


LOVED THE MOST.


IN ORDER TO GET AWAY WITH THIS


GUY AND BE INAPPROPRIATE


SEXUALLY AND HAVE AN AFFAIR.


THIS IS NOT ME.


AUDREY REALIZED SHE COULD NOT


CONTINUE LIVING THE DOUBLE LIFE


AND ENDED THE AFFAIR.


NOW, SHE HAD TO TELL HER HUSBAND


OF 17 YEARS WHAT SHE HAD DONE.


I WAS SCARED OUT OF MY MIND.


I WAS SHAKING.


IF IT CAME DOWN TO A CHOICE OF


WHO I WOULD CHOOSE.


THERE WAS NEVER A QUESTION IN MY


MIND, I WANTED MY HUSBAND AND MY


KIDS.


I HAVEN'T CONFRONTED HIM IN 17


YEARS ABOUT LITTLE THINGS, NOW


I'M GOING TO TELL HIM THE MOST


BETRAYING MESSAGE I COULD EVER


IMAGINE.


I SAT VERY CLOSELY AND WHISPERED


IN HIS EAR AND SAID I HAVE DONE


SOMETHING EXTREMELY


INAPPROPRIATE.


I SAW JUST THIS EXTREME RAGE AND


HATRED COME INTO THIS EYES.


THIS WAS NOT A LITTLE MISTAKE


OR A OOPS OR HICCUP, I WANTED TO


PUNCH HOLES IN WALLS, SLAM


DOORS, EXPRESS SOME ANGER OR


RAGE.


I FELT SO MUCH SHAME FOR WHAT


I DID.


AND SO MUCH DEEP REGRET.


ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS GET


HER FIXED.


SHE'S THE PROBLEM.


SHE HAD THE AFFAIR.


EVERY HAPPY MEMORY OF 17 YEARS


OF MARRIAGE WAS GONE.


MY HEAD WAS SCREAMING WITH WORDS


SHE DOESN'T LOVE YOU.


SHE'S NEVER LOVED YOU.


YOUR MARRIAGE HAS BEN A FARCE.


BOB CALLED A MARRIAGE


COUNSELOR WHO HAD BEEN A GUEST


ON THEIR TELEVISION PROGRAM.


THE COUPLE FLEW TO PHOENIX THE


NEXT DAY TO MEET WITH HIM.


WELL, HE STARTS WITH ME,


BEGINS TO RIP ME UP ONE SIDE AND


THE OTHER AND SAID THIS TO ME,


BOB, YOUR SPIRITUALLY LAZY.


I GOT, YOU KNOW, DAILY CHRISTIAN


TELEVISION, I'M PASTURING


A CHURCH.


I'M A FATHER.


I'M A COUNSELOR, I HAVE ALL OF


THESE ACTIVITIES GOING ON AND


YOU CALL ME SPIRITUALLY LAZY.


HE SAID, AUDREY, ANYONE THAT


HAS DONE WHAT YOU HAVE JUST DONE


DOES NOT RESPECT THEIR HUSBAND.


I WANT YOU TO GET ONE WITH GOD


AND ASK YOU THE MOMENT YOU


STARTED DISRESPECTING HIM.


HE SAID BOB, WHAT IS DONE IS


DONE.


WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS WHETHER


OR NOT YOU WILL BECOME THE MAN


OF GOD THAT YOU NEED TO BE TO


KEEP YOUR FAMILY TOGETHER.


BEFORE YOU GO TO BED, YOU WILL


GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES AND YOU


WILL PRAY WITH EACH OTHER.


I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME


WE HAD PRAYED WITH EACH OTHER.


THE ONLY WORDS THAT WE COULD GET


OUT WERE GOD, WE NEED YOU AND WE


CRIED AND WE CRIED.


EVERY PART OF OUR


RELATIONSHIP HAD TO COME TO


A NEW LEVEL OF TRANSPARENCY.


ALL OF THE SUDDEN THERE WAS NO


ROOM FOR ANY SECRETS.


BUT ONE BIG SECRET WAS YET TO


BE REVEALED.


A FEW MONTHS LATER THEY RECEIVED


NEWS FROM THE DOCTOR -- AUDREY


WAS PREGNANT.


I HAD A VASECTOMY.


SO I KNOW THAT IT WASN'T ME.


HE MUST HAVE SEEN THE FEAR ALL


OVER OUR FACES.


BECAUSE HE IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED


THAT STATEMENT WITH THE


QUESTION -- DO YOU WANT TO


CONTINUE THE PREGNANCY.


I, IMMEDIATELY ANSWERED YES.


WITHOUT A DOUBT.


I WAS SCARED OUT OF MY MIND.


YET, THAT WAS THE FIRST MOMENT I


FELT STRENGTH FROM BOB.


BEFORE EVERY SIDE OF ME


WANTED TO PUNISH HER.


NOW I RECOGNIZE THAT SHE'S


CARRYING A BABY.


THAT SHE NEEDED MY HELP.


THIS BABY IS GOING TO NEED


PARENTS.


I WANT TO BE THAT DAD.


BOB AND AUDREY RESIGNED FROM


THEIR POSITIONS, MOVED TO


PHOENIX AND TOLD THEIR CHILDREN


WHAT WAS GOING ON.


WE KNEW THAT IT WAS


A BIRACIAL SITUATION AND THAT


OUR CHILDREN NEEDED TO KNOW.


I WAS SO SCARED.


THAT MY KIDS WOULD BE MESSED UP.


I'M ONE OF THE MOMS THAT LOVE


THEIR KIDS MORE THAN LIFE


ITSELF.


THEY WALKED IN SEEING A MOM


AND DAD SITTING ON THE FLOOR


CRYING.


I SPOKE TO THEM HOW I LOVED


THEIR MOM AND THAT WE'RE


A FAMILY.


THAT WE BELONG TOGETHER.


THAT I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE.


WITH HER HELD IN MY ARMS AND


COVERED I LOOKED AT THEM AND


SAID WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A BABY


BROTHER.


5 MONTHS LATER, BOB AND


AUDREY RUSHED TO THE DELIVERY


ROOM.


IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST


BEAUTIFUL DAYS OF MY LIFE.


THIS LITTLE BOY WAS NOTHING BUT


A GIFT.


AN ABSOLUTE GIFT.


WHEN OUR SON WAS BORN,


I GAVE HIM MY NAME.


ROBERT.


MIDDLE NAME, THEODORE.


THEN MISNER.


BECAUSE I DON'T WANT MY SON TO


EVER QUESTION ONE DAY IN HIS


LIFE WHO'S BOY HE IS.


THEODORE MEANS DIVINE GIFT.


TEN YEARS LATER BOB AND


AUDREY'S MARRIAGE IS STRONGER


THAN EVER.


OUR RELATIONSHIP BECAME


DYNAMIC LIKE IT HAD NEVER BEEN


BEFORE.


NOW I'M BEING HONEST AND HE'S


BEING HONEST.


THERE NEEDED TO BE


A TRANSPARENCY, A VENERABILITY


TO BE WILLING TO BE KNOWN BE THE


OTHER PERSON.


THIS WAS NEW TERRITORY FOR US.


IF WE CAN GET THROUGH THE


FEARS THAT KEEP YOU FROM


COMMUNICATING AND THE FEARS THAT


KEEP YOU IN THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL


DANCE AND REALLY START HAVING


A RELATIONSHIP WITH NO SECRETS.


THERE IS NOTHING MORE FUN THAN


THAT.


OUR LITTLE ROBERT IS OUR NUT


CAKE.


HE IS SO MUCH FUN.


SO FULL OF PERSONALITY.


NEVER A DULL MOMENT.


THOSE THREE OLDER KIDS LOVE HIM


WITH EVERY PART OF THEIR BEING.


IF YOU SEE THEM ALL TOGETHER.


THERE IS SO MUCH LAUGHTER.


FOR THE EXTENT THAT I HAVE


EXPERIENCED HIS LOVE AND HIS


GRACE.


I'M THE MOST THANKFUL PERSON YOU


WILL EVER MEET.


I DON'T GET WHAT I DESERVE


BECAUSE OF WHAT HE DID.


HE PAID THIS HIGH PRICE.


TO REALLY TAKE MY SIN AND TO


REALLY TAKE MY SHAME AND BECAUSE


HE LIVES INSIDE OF ME, I DON'T


GET WHAT I DESERVED, I GET WHAT


HE DESERVES.


THAT'S AMAZING LOVE.


I LOVE WHAT AUDREY SAID


THERE, I DON'T GET WHAT I


DESERVE BECAUSE HE PAID THE


PRICE TO TAKE MY SHAME.


MOST MARRIAGES WOULD NOT SURVIVE


WHAT BOBBY AND AUDREY HAVE BEEN


THROUGH.


I KNOW HIM PERSONALLY AND THEY


ARE THE MOST AMAZING, ASTOUNDING


COUPLE.


IT IS INSPIRING TO SEE A COUPLE


GO THROUGH THE FIRE.


YOU KNOW WHAT THIS STORY MEANS?


IT MEANS NO MATTER WHAT YOU'RE


GOING THROUGH TODAY.


WHATEVER STRUGGLES YOU'RE


HAVING.


YOU CAN BET THAT GOD, THE SAME


GOD THAT INTERVENED IN THEIR


RELATIONSHIP CAN INTERVENE IN


YOUR LIFE.


GOD A MIRACLE WORKING GOD.


WHEN WE PRACTICE THOSE GREAT


PRINCIPLES OF FORGIVENESS, OF


REPENTANCE, THOSE ARE THE VERY,


VERY BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT BIND


A COUPLE TOGETHER.


I HOPE THAT YOU'LL GO OUT, IF


YOU ARE STRUGGLING AT ALL AND


GET THEIR BOOK.


IN THE BOOK, BOB DESCRIBES HOW


THEY HAD TO TELL THE KIDS.


WHEN I READ THAT PART OF THE


BOOK I JUST CRIED.


I WAS SITTING, YOU KNOW, IN MY


CHAIR.


I JUST SOBBED AT HOW GOD GAVE


BOB SUCH FORGIVENESS IN HIS


HEART.


HOW HE TOOK A BLANKET AND HE


COVERED AUDREY.


THE SAME WAY THAT JESUS COVERS


US.


OUR SIN IS REMOVED FROM US


BECAUSE OF WHAT HE DID.


NO MATTER WHAT YOU'RE GOING


THROUGH TODAY.


NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE


STRUGGLING WITH.


JESUS ABLE TO TAKE ALL OF THAT


PAIN AND ALL OF THE SHAME.


HE'S ABLE TO BRING HEALING.


HE'S ABLE TO BRING WHOLENESS AND


YOU NEVER HAVE TO LOSE HOPE.


YOU ARE SO RIGHT, LAURA-LYNN.


THIS IS REALLY A TOUCHY SUBJECT.


AS A PASTOR ONE OF THE THINGS I


KNOW


INFILDELITY, BETRAYAL,


IT HAPPENS


IN A MOMENT.


BUT THE RAMIFICATIONS ARE OVER


TIME.


EVEN HEALING IS OVER TIME AS


WELL.


I'VE GOT SOME TOOLS THAT I KNOW


ARE GOING TO HIT HOME, OVER


COMING ANGER AND ALSO, OVER


COMING TEMPTATION.


HOW TO HAVE REALLY THE MARRIAGE


THAT GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO, BUT


BEFORE YOU HAVE THAT, EPHESIANS


SAYS THE THIS WAY IN THE 4th


CHAPTER IN THE 27th VERSE, IT


SAYS THE ANGRIEST IS NOT.


NOW, AS A PASTURE SEE PEOPLE


THAT ARE REALLY ANGRY ABOUT


THIS, EVEN IF YOU STUFF YOUR


ANGER, YOUR STOMACH STILL KEEPS


THE SCORE.


BUT GOD CAN LITERALLY TAKE THAT


AWAY AS WELL, BUT IT HAS TO


START WITH GOD FIRST.


THIS IS THE QUESTION I HAVE TO


ASK YOU.


THIS IS THE QUESTION THAT I ASK


EVERY COUPLE I'M COUNSELING.


DO YOU WANT TO DO IT GOD'S WAY?


I KNOW THAT IS A DIFFICULT ONE.


WAIT FOR THE ANSWER.


BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IN THIS


MOMENT, THIS IS WHERE YOU'RE


GOING TO SAY, IF I WANT TO DO IT


GOD'S WAY, THIS IS WHERE WE


START.


BECAUSE IF GOD IS NOT THE CENTER


OF YOUR MARRIAGE, LITERALLY


YOU'RE THE CENTER AND YOU HAVE


TO KEEP YOUR MARRIAGE AND DO


EVERYTHING, BUT IF GOD IS THE


CENTER OF YOUR MARRIAGE.


GOD WILL KEEP YOUR MARRIAGE


BECAUSE IT IS A COVENANT.


LET'S DO SOME BUSINESS WITH GOD


RIGHT NOW.


AFTER I PRAY THIS PRAYER, I WANT


YOU TO CALL THE NUMBER ON THE


SCREEN BECAUSE I WANT TO GET


THIS INTO YOUR HANDS.


RIGHT NOW ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST


INTO YOUR HEART.


WOULD YOU DO THIS WITH ME?


PRAY THIS PRAYER.


FATHER, I RECEIVE YOUR GIFT OF


YOUR SON.


I AM A SINNER.


I HAVE SINNED AGAINST YOU.


GOD, I WANT YOUR FREE GIFT OF


SALVATION.


I ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST INTO MY


LIFE.


MAKE ME THE KIND OF MAN, THE


WOMAN YOU WANT ME TO BE, IN


JESUS' NAME.


NOW, IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER,


CALL THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.


I'M GOING TO PRAY WITH YOU RIGHT


NOW.


FATHER, WOULD YOU SEAL THAT MAN


AND THAT WOMAN AND NOW BEGIN THE


PROCESS OF WALKING THEM THROUGH


THEIR DELIVERANCE AND


RESTORATION IN JESUS' NAME.

CALL "THE 700 CLUB CANADA."


WE'LL HELP YOU FIND ANSWERS TO


THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIFE


BRINGS YOUR WAY.


[ MUSIC ]


WE ALL FACE OUR OWN GIANTS,


DON'T WE?


THEY ARE BRUTAL, MONODICAL,


DIABOLICAL AND OUT TO DESTROY


US.


THEY COME AGAINST OUR GOD, OUR


FAITH, OUR FAMILY, OUR PEOPLE,


OUR VERY LIVES.


WITH SUCH AN ARROGANT, BULLYING


DISPOSITION THAT IT MAKES MOST


OF US COWER IN FEAR.


THERE ARE SECRETS WE CAN LEARN


TO BECOME A GIANT SLAYER FROM


ONE SMALL READY BOY WHO DARED TO


TAKE ON A 9-FOOT DEFIANT ARMORED


STRONG DISRESPECTFUL GIANT.


YOUR GIANT MIGHT LOOK TOO BIG TO


CONQUER.


YOU MIGHT FEEL OVERWHELMED BY


THE MAGNITUDE OF THE PROBLEM.


BUT REMEMBER DAVID WAS JUST


A SHEEP HERDER.


GOD LOVES TO USE THE SMALL AND


ASSUMING, UNQUALIFIED, SEEMINGLY


UNSKILLED AMATEUR TO BRING ABOUT


THE GREATEST DEFEATS AGAINST THE


ENEMY.


GOD TAKES PRIDE IN USING THE ONE


WHO APPEARS TO BE INCOMPETENT OR


TOO WEAK FOR THE TASK AT HAND.


DAVID HEARD THE GIANT DEFYING


THE ARMIES OF GOD.


HE WAS INDIGNANT THAT GOLIATH


HAD BEEN LEFT UNCHARGED.


DAVID BEGAN ASKING QUESTIONS


ABOUT WHO INTENDED TO FIGHT THIS


GUY?


THEN IN FIRST SAMUEL 17:28 IT


SAYS, WHEN DAVID'S OLDEST


BROTHER HEARD DAVID SPEAKING


WITH THE MAN HE BURNED WITH


ANGER WITH HIM AND ASKED WHY


HAVE YOU COME DOWN HERE AND WITH


WHO DID YOU LEAVE THE FEW SHEEP


IN THE WILDERNESS?


DAVID'S BROTHER SAID GET BACK TO


YOUR BUSINESS.


GO TAKE CARE OF THE SHEEP.


I KNOW HOW CONCEDED YOU ARE AND


HOW WICKED YOUR HEART IS.


YOU CAME DOWN ONLY TO WATCH THE


BATTLE.


YOU KNOW, DAVID WAS THE GUY WHO


GOD EVENTUALLY CALLED A MAN


AFTER HIS OWN HEART.


YET HIS OWN FAMILY HAD NO REGARD


FOR HIS ABILITIES, BUT DAVID,


THOUGH, UNKNOWN, HAD ALREADY


FOUGHT SOME GIANTS IN THE BACK


40.


HE HAD KILLED A LION AND A BEAR.


WHEN THEY CAME AGAINST HIM IN


THE DESERT.


HE TOOK CARE OF BUSINESS.


HE HAD FAITH THAT GOD WOULD COME


THROUGH AGAIN AND AGAIN, BUT


KING SAUL CAUGHT WIND OF THIS


YOUNG MAN WHO WAS SPEAKING UP SO


COURAGEOUSLY AND HE SENT FOR HIM


DO YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU ARE


A MAN OR WOMAN OF EXTRAORDINARY


COURAGE AND 78, WE'RE GOING TO


BE NOTICED BY OTHERS OF


SIGNIFICANCE?


SAUL WANTED TO DRESS HIM IN HIS


ARMER.


DAVID COME AND PUT THIS ON.


OF COURSE, IT DIDN'T FIT.


IN THE COURSE OF LIFE THOSE


AROUND YOU WILL WANT YOU TO


FIGHT THE BATTLE THEIR WAY, WITH


THEIR TOOLS.


THEIR WEAPONS OF WARFARE, BUT


YOU'RE UNIQUE.


GOD IS GOING TO EMPOWER YOU TO


TAKE DOWN YOUR GIANT WITH WHAT


HE HAS ALREADY EQUIPPED YOU


WITH.


SOMETHING THAT IS IN YOUR HAND


RIGHT NOW.


WHAT GOD TAUGHT YOU IN YOUR


DESERT EXPERIENCE ALL OF THOSE


LONELY DAYS IN THE WILDERNESS,


FIGHTING SMALLER BATTLES WITH


JUST THE TALENTS HE HAD GIVEN


YOU.


LIKE A SMALL SLING AND PERHAPS


FIVE LITTLE STONES.


IN FIRST SAMUEL 5:45.


DAVID SAID TO, YOU COME AGAINST


ME WITH SWORD AND SPHERE AND


JAVELIN, BUT I COME AGAINST YOU


IN THE NAME OF THE LORD


ALMIGHTY.


DAVID WENT ON TO SAY ALL THOSE


WHO GATHER HERE WILL KNOW THAT


IT IS NOT BY SWORD OR SPHERE,


THAT THE LORD SAVES.


FOR THE BATTLE IS THE LORD'S.


GOD, IS ALL YOU NEED WHEN YOU


FACE YOUR MOUNTAIN.


HE WILL TAKE WHAT HE HAS ALREADY


EQUIPPED YOU WITH, WHAT HE HAS


TAUGHT YOU IN THE DESERT.


HE WILL PUT THAT TOOL INTO YOUR


HAND AND BRING ABOUT THE DEFEAT


OF THE GIANT THAT TAUNTS YOU.


YOU COULD ALWAYS RECOGNIZE


A GIANT, BECAUSE A GIANT IT


STANDS IN YOUR WAY AND SAYS WHAT


ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?


IT'S A BULLY, BUT YOU KNOW HOW


DAVID LITERALLY BECAME A GIANT


KILLER?


PSALMS 34 SAYS, YOUR PRAISE


SHALL CONTINUALLY BE IN MY


MOUTH, THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL SEE


IT AND BE GLAD.


LITERALLY IT STARTED OFF WITH


STINKY PRAISE.


DAVID WAS WITH THE SHEEP.


PRAISING GOD ALL BY HIMSELF.


BECAUSE HE SMELLED LIKE THE


SHEEP, BECAUSE HE WAS A SHEPHERD


AND WHEN THAT BEAR CAME AND THAT


LION, WHICH WAS 300-POUNDS AND


WAS 3-FOOT, JUST STANDING IN AND


9 FEET HIGH, IF HE STOOD ON HIS


HIND FEET, DAVID GRABBED HIM BY


THE THROAT AND SAID GIVE ME THAT


SHEEP BACK.


YOUR STINKY PRAISE CAN START


WHEN YOU BEGIN TO LIFT UP YOUR


HANDS AND SAY GOD I'M YOURS.


I WILL BLESS THE LORD AT ALL


TIMES AND HIS PRAISE SHALL


CONTINUALLY BE IN MY MOUTH.


IT STARTS TODAY.


THIS IS HENRY'S STORY AND HE


SHARES WITH LAURA-LYNN HIS PAIN


AND IT IS PRETTY INTERESTING.


HOW ARE YOU GUYS?


VERY WELL, THANK YOU.


WHAT'S YOUR NAME?


KATHERINE.


KATHERINE?


HENRY.


AND HENRY.


I WANT TO TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT


THINGS THAT REALLY MATTER.


THEIR FAITH, THEIR HOPE, WHERE


THEY PUT THEIR HOPE WHEN WE HEAR


ALL OF THIS IS BAD NEWS ON TV


SOMETIMES ABOUT TERRIBLE THINGS


HAPPENING.


OKAY.


WHERE DO YOU?


OKAY.


HMM.


IT IS A BIG QUESTION.


MY HOPE, I HAVE A LOT OF


HOPE.


YEAH.


HOW COME, WHY DON'T YOU HAVE


A LOT OF HOPE?


I DON'T KNOW, LIKE, BAD STUFF


HAPPENS A LOT.


WHO DO YOU BELIEVE IN?


I BELIEVE IN SOMETHING.


UH-HUH.


AND HE HAS A DESTINY FOR YOU.


UM, YEAH.


WELL I'M ALL FOR BELIEVING OR


HOPING FOR A DESTINY, YOU KNOW.


YES.


I DO BELIEVE IN DIVINE


APPOINTMENTS AND DIVINE


DESTINIES.


SURE.


I GUESS, I -- I KIND OF --


EVERYONE WANTS TO FEEL LIKE


THEY'RE IMPORTANT AND -- I WISH


I COULD FEEL LIKE I WAS


IMPORTANT.


YOU ARE IMPORTANT.


I FEEL LIKE, I FEEL LIKE I'M


IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE I KNOW.


I WANT TO TELL YOU HOW


IMPORTANT YOU ARE.


YOU ARE SO IMPORTANT THAT AS I


SCANNED THE BEACH AND I SAID,


GOD WHO'S NEXT, YOUR, YOU WERE


RIGHT THERE AND MY HEART BEAT


AND I KNEW I NEEDED TO SPEAK TO


YOU.


YEP.


WHAT DO YOU KNOW?


MAYBE YOU JUST NEED A LITTLE BIT


OF ENCOURAGEMENT, BECAUSE YOU


ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO GOD.


HMM.


YOU ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO


HIM.


HMM.


HE HAS SEEN YOU.


IN FACT THE WORD AS YOU WELL


KNOW, SAYS THAT BEFORE YOU WERE


FORMED IN YOUR MOTHER'S WOMB HE


KNEW YOU AND HE HAD A PLAN FOR


YOU.


YOU ARE HERE FOR A PURPOSE AND


A REASON.


EVEN IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN


HIM, HE BELIEVES IN YOU.


I KNOW GOD LOVES YOU.


MAY HE REVEAL HIS TRUTH TO YOU.


CAN I PRAY FOR YOU?


IF YOU REALLY WANT TO.


YEAH.


SURE.


WHY NOT.


OKAY.


FATHER I JUST PRAY IN JESUS'


NAME THAT YOU WOULD REVEAL


YOURSELF TO MY FRIEND AND TO HIS


FRIEND OVER HERE AS WELL.


YOU WOULD SHOW YOURSELF TO BE


WHO YOU ARE AND THAT YOU WOULD


REVEAL HOW VERY SIGNIFICANT HE


IS TO YOU.


EVEN THROUGH THIS MEETING.


ON AND ON AND ON.


MAY HE BE, MAY HE BE A GOD WHO


REVEALS HIMSELF TO YOU EVERY


SINGLE DAY.


IN JESUS' NAME.


AMEN.


AMEN.


YEAH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.


YOUR WELCOME.


I APPRECIATE THAT.


THANK YOU.


[ MUSIC ]


COOL, LAURA-LYNN, YOU KNOW


YOU HAVE A VERY INTERESTING


SKILL OF BEING ABLE TO ALLOW


PEOPLE TO BE TRANSPARENT.


BECAUSE -- IN A VERY SHORT


PERIOD OF TIME HENRY WAS ABLE TO


REALLY ALLOW YOU TO PRAY


FOR HIM.


WHAT DID YOU SENSE IN THE


MOMENT?


WELL, I SENSE THAT WE'RE ALL


HUMAN BEINGS AT THE CORE OF US.


LIKE HE SAID, I WANT TO FEEL


IMPORTANT.


THAT'S THE SAME THING THAT YOU


WOULD LIKE AND THAT I WOULD LIKE
