The 700 Club - September 18, 2012

Bishop Harry Jackson shares why it's important to pray daily for America. Plus, a Navy fighter jet falls out of the sky onto an apartment complex, but no one is killed. Read Transcript


A PLANE JUST WENT DOWN

OFF OF 24th STREET.

Reporter: A

MALFUNCTIONING JET, AND A

FIERY CRASH.

I'M JUST SCREAMING, NO,

NO, NO!

Reporter: THE CARNAGE.

THE FIRST QUESTION I

ASKED THE FIRE CHIEF, HOW

MANY CASUALTIES DO WE HAVE?

Reporter: AND THE

MIRACLE.

GOD HAD HIS HANDS ALL

AROUND US.

Reporter: WE CONTINUE

OUR WEEK OF PRAYER ON

TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS AMAZING, THE COVER-UP

THAT IS GOING ON BY THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ABOUT

THESE RIOTS THAT ARE TAKING

PLACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

NOTHING IS BLAMED ON OUR

FOREIGN POLICY.

IT IS ALL BLAMED ON, I

THINK, A 10- OR 11-MINUTE

VIDEO SHOT BY AN EGYPTIAN

FILM-MAKER.

THE ACTORS DIDN'T EVEN KNOW

WHAT IT WAS ABOUT, AND I'M

NOT SURE MANY PEOPLE EVEN

SAW IT.

BUT SUDDENLY THIS IS THE

CAUSE OF RIOTS AND DEATH ALL

ACROSS THE MIDEAST.

THESE RIOTS HAVE DRAWN ONE

OF THE WORLD'S TOP

TERRORISTS OUT OF HIDING.

THE LEADER OF HEZBOLLAH IS

RALLYING HIS TROOPS AGAINST,

GET WHAT, THE GREAT SATAN,

AMERICA.

Kristi: PAT, ACROSS THE

MUSLIM WORLD, THE OUTRAGE IS

NOT DYING DOWN.

NOW IRAN IS ISSUING A NEW

WARNING TO THE WORLD.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS MORE.

Reporter: TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PROTESTORS

GATHERED TO HEAR A 15-MINUTE

SPEECH BY THE LEADER OF THE

TERRORIST GROUP, HEZBOLLAH.

HE RARELY APPEARS IN PUBLIC,

AND HIS APPEAL IS LIKELY TO

ADD TO THE FURY OVER AN

ANTI-ISLAM FILM PORTRAYING

THE PROPHET MO MOHAMMED.

NASRALA SAID THE UNITED

STATES MUST BE HELD

ACCOUNTABLE FOR CREATING

STRIFE BETWEEN MUSLIMS AND

CHRISTIANS.

ANTI-AMERICAN PROTESTS

CONTINUE IN AT LEAST EIGHT

COUNTRIES.

IRAN'S TOP LEADER, I

AYATOLLAH, APPEARED ON

TELEVISION AND URGED WESTERN

LEADERS TO BLOCK THE FILM

OUT OF RESPECT FOR MUSLIMS.

THEY SHOULD PROVE THEY

ARE NOT ACCOMPLICES.

THEY SHOULD NOT PROVE IT IN

WORDS.

THEY SHOULD PROVE IT IN

ACTIONS.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

TENSIONS BETWEEN IRAN AND

ISRAEL CONTINUE TO GROW.

GENERAL MOHAMMED ALI SHARARI

RECENTLY WARNED IRAN WOULD

CLOSE THE STRAITS OF HORMUZ

IF IT WAS ATTACKED.

MANY ARE IN THE PERSIAN GULF

FOR 12 GAMES OF WAR GAMES.

THEY'RE PREPARING TO PROTECT

THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ.

NEARLY 18 MILLION GALLONS

ARE TRANSPORTED.

THEY BELIEVE IF ISRAEL

STRIKES IRAN, IRAN WILL TRY

TO BLOCK OR DESTROY THE

SHIPPING LANE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, EPHRAIM.

I MET WITH THE FORMER HEAD

OF ISRAEL, AND THEY TOLD ME

IF THEY EVER FOUND OUT THE

PRESENCE OR EXISTENCE OR

LOCATION OF SHEIK NARRALA OF

HEZBOLLAH, THAT HE WOULD BE

A DEAD MAN.

HE IS STILL ALIVE AND

KICKING AND SHOWING HIS

USUAL RHETORIC.

FOR MORE ON THESE ISSUES, WE

TURN TO OUR MIDDLE EAST

BUREAU CHIEF, CHRIS

MITCHELL.

GOOD TO BE HERE.

Pat: HOW DO YOU READ

THIS HEZBOLLAH STUFF?

I THINK IT IS PART OF THE

ISLAMIC AGENDA TO INTIMIDATE

THE WEST.

WHAT WE DO IN THE WEST IS

FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

AND I THINK THEY'RE TRYING

TO SUPPRESS WHAT WE DO --

Pat: THE INCREDIBLE

THING IS THIS WAS DONE BY AN

EGYPTIAN.

THE MAN WHO DID THIS WAS AN

EGYPTIAN.

AND IT WAS JUST A LITTLE

CLIP, 12 MINUTES, 15

MINUTES.

AND THE FACT THAT THE UNITED

STATES HAS BACKED AWAY FROM

THAT AND CONDEMNED IT ANDpB@B

SAYING IT IS DISGUSTING AND

ALL OF THAT, AND MOST PEOPLE

HAVEN'T SEEN IT OR KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

THE FILM ITSELF SEEMS TO

BE A PRETEXT, AN EXCUSE, AND

YOU CAN CAN FIND ANY OFFENSE

WAITING IN THE WINGS.

I THINK DRIVING THIS DEEPER

IS AN ISLAMIC AGENDA TO

ESTABLISH A WORLDWIDE CAL

KALAFAT.

AND EXPLAINING THAT ISLAM,

THE HOUSE OF PEACE, IS DOING

BATTLE AGAINST THE HOUSE OF

WAR.

THE PART OF THE WORLD THAT

IS NOT SUBJECTED TO ISLAM

YET.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

HEAD -- THE ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER, THE PREVIOUS ONE,

TOLD ME IF THEY EVER GET

THIS GUY, HE IS GOING TO BE

A DEAD MAN.

WE'RE GOING TO GET HIM

BECAUSE HE HAS KILLED SO

MANY INNOCENT ISRAELIS.

AND SUDDENLY HE HAS SURFACED

AND MAKING ANNOUNCEMENTS

FROM THE PLATFORM.

RIGHT.

IT IS A RARE ANNOUNCEMENT,

BECAUSE HE USUALLY DOES HIS

THINGS BY SATELLITE.

ONE ISRAELI LEADER SAYS THAT

THE NEXT 50 DAYS IN

ISRAELI'S HISTORY WILL BE AS

IMPORTANT AS THE 70 DAYS

BEFORE THE YOM KIPPUR WAR.

THEY REALIZE THE THREAT AND

THE INCREASING PACE BY IRAN

TO GET A NUCLEAR BOMB, PUTS

THEM PROBABLY IN THE MOST

DANGER THAN IT HAS BEEN IN

GENERATIONS.

Pat: THEY KEEP MAKING

FAINT, AND THEY SEND OUT

SIGNALS THAT THEY'RE GOING

TO HIT THEM AND THEN THEY

BACK UP.

ARE THEY EVER GOING TO GO

FORWARD AND STRIKE THOSE

NUCLEAR FACILITIES.

ISRAEL HAS NOT LET ITS

NEIGHBORS GO ISRAEL.

IN 1971, THEY HIT SUDAN'S

REACTOR, AND I THINK FOR THE

THIRD TIME THEY WILL NOT LET

ISRAEL GO NUCLEAR.

HOW AND WHEN THEY DO THAT

REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

BUT WE SEE THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY, INCLUDING THE

UNITED STATES, DOESN'T WANT

ISRAEL TO LAUNCH A MILITARY

STRIKE.

THEY KEEP SAYING SANCTIONS

WERE WORK.

Pat: CHRIS, YOU AND I

WERE OVER THERE IN THAT LAST

WAR, AND ISRAEL DIDN'T DO

WELL.

THEY OBVIOUSLY WEREN'T

PREPARED.

THEY RECOVERED, BUT THEY

DIDN'T RECOVER LIKE THEY

SHOULD HAVE.

ARE THEY READY NOW?

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE

HEZBOLLAH HAVE SCUD MISSILES

AND TARGETING MISSILES THAT

ARE MUCH MORE

SOPHISTICATED.

I THINK THEY ARE.

RIGHT NOW BENNY GANSA IS THE

CHIEF-OF-STAFF.

HE SAYS RIGHT NOW, JUST A

FEW DAYS AGO, THEY'RE MORE

READY THAN THEY HAVE BEEN IN

THEIR HISTORY.

I THINK THE LESSONS THEY'VE

LEARNED IN THE 2006 WAR

THEY'VE EMPLOYED.

WE TALKED TO THE COMMANDER

OF THE NORTHERN BORDER, AND

THEY SAID THEY WON'T EMPLOY

THE SAME THINGS THEY DID

BEFORE.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO IN AND

LEVEL MANY OF THE HEZBOLLAHS

ON THE BORDER.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO EMPLOY

THE SAME SORT OF URBAN

TACTICS THEY DID IN 2006.

I BELIEVE THE NEXT WAR,

WHENEVER THAT MIGHT BE, IT

IS SOMETHING THAT ISRAEL --

Pat: WELL, THEY HAVE TO

PROTECT THEMSELVES.

THERE IS NO PLACE IN ISRAEL

THAT IS SAFE FROM BEING

STRUCK BY A ROCKET ATTACK.

EXACTLY.

THERE ARE 50- TO 60,000

MISSILE BY HEZBOLLAH.

AND NOW THE WHOLE COASTAL

PLAIN, TEL AVIV ITSELF, IS

UNDER ATTACK.

AND THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED

BEFORE, AFTER 1948, I THINK

THEY'RE PREPARED TO STRIKE

BACK HARDER THAN THEY EVER

THAT BEFORE.

Pat: THEY BETTER.

YOU TALKED CONFIDENTIALLY TO

THE PEOPLE.

ARE THEY SAYING

CONFIDENTIALLY THEY'RE GOING

TO GO, OR WE'RE NOT GOING TO

GO OR THEY'RE NOT TELLING.

THE PEOPLE THAT KNOW

DON'T SAY, AND THE PEOPLE

THAT DON'T KNOW ARE SAYING.

SO THEY REALLY DON'T KNOW.

BUT I THINK WHEN IT COMES

DOWN TO IT, ISRAEL WILL HAVE

TO STRIKE.

I KNOW RIGHT NOW AT ROSH

HASHANAH -- IF YOU'RE IN

ISRAEL RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE ARE

EXPECTING A WAR.

IT IS JUST A MATTER OF WHEN,

NOT NECESSARILY IF, A WAR IS

COMING.

AND THEY'RE PREPARED AND

MANY WAYS.

ONE COMMENTATOR WROTE AN

ARTICLE, SAYING TAKING

DESTINY IN THEIR HANDS, AND

DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN

MILITARILY TO DO EVERYTHING

THEY CAN, AND TAKING THEIR

APPEALS TO THE CREATOR

THEMSELVES.

AND HE SAID THEY CAN MANAGE

THEIR OWN DESTINY BY TAKING

THE POWER OF PRAYER AND

INCORPORATING THAT INTO THE

WEAPONS THAT ISRAEL HAS.

Pat: THE ISRAELIS -- I

WAS THERE DURING THE FEAST

OF TA TABERNACLES AND IT IS

A LOVELY TIME, AND ARE THE

ISRAELIS TURNING TO GOD OR

IS IT SECULAR.

IN MANY WAYS IN SECULAR.

THERE ARE THE ORTHODOX WHO

HAVE A FAITH IN THE GOD OF

THE OLD TESTAMENT, BUT YOU

SEE A MUCH INCREASINGLY

SOMETIMES SECULAR SOCIETY,

AND THERE IS A BIG DIVISION

BETWEEN THEM.

I THINK THE CIRCUMSTANCES

ARE GOING TO FORCE MANY

ISRAELIS NOT ONLY TO LOOK TO

THE EAST AND THE WEST, BUT

TO LOOK UP, TOWARDS HEAVEN.

Pat: CHRIS, WE

APPRECIATE YOU.

CHRIS IS COVERING THAT

MIDDLE EAST AND DOING A

FABULOUS JOB.

YOU'LL HEAR IT HERE WHEN WE

FIND OUT WHAT'S GOING ON

OVER THERE.

YOU CAN SEE MORE REPORTS

FROM THE MIDDLE EAST, AND

CHRIS MITCHELL, AND A SHOW

CALLED "JERUSALEM DATE

LINE."

LEE WEBB HAS MORE OF OUR TOP

STORIES.

LEE?

Lee: MITT ROMNEY IS NOT

APOLOGIZING FOR A VIDEO THAT

SURFACED SHOWING HIM

CRITICIZING OBAMA

SUPPORTERS.

IT WAS SECRETLY RECORDED AT

A ROMNEY FUNDRAISER IN

FLORIDA.

HE SAYS HE IS NOT LIKELY TO

WIN THE VOTES OF THE 47% OF

AMERICANS WHO BELIEVE THEY

ARE VICTIMS AND BELIEVE THAT

THE GOVERNMENT HAS A

RESPONSIBILITY TO CARE FOR

THEM.

AND HE ALSO TALKS ABOUT

VOTERS WHO DO NOT PAY INCOME

TAXES, AND HOW HE IS TRYING

TO WIN THE VOTES OF THE 5%

TO 10% OF THE AMERICANS IN

THE CENTER.

ROMNEY EXPLAINED THE TAPE AT

A NEWS CONFERENCE MONDAY

NIGHT.

IT IS NOT ELEGANTLY

STATED.

OF COURSE INDIVIDUALS ARE

GOING TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY

FOR THEIR LIFE, AND MY

CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT HELPING

PEOPLE TAKE MORE

RESPONSIBILITY AND BECOMING

EMPLOYED AGAIN.

Lee: THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN

CALLS THE REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATE'S COMMENTS

SHOCKING.

PAT?

Pat: OF COURSE IT WOULD

BE SHOCKING TO OBAMA, BUT HE

SET UP A WELFARE STATE.

46MILLION PEOPLE NOW GETTING

FOOD STAMPS.

HUGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE

UNEMPLOYED, AND BECAUSE OF

THE TAX STRUCTURE WE'VE

GOT -- APPARENTLY IT IS OVER

50% THAT PAY NO TAXES AT

ALL.

IF OBAMA SAY LET'S TAX THE

RICH.

THOSE PEOPLE JUST APPLAUD.

OBAMA IS NOT GOING TO TAX

ME, BUT WE'RE GOING TO GET

THOSE GUYS THAT EARN MONEY.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE THOSE

PEOPLE WHO ARE CREATING

WEALTH AND CREATING JOBS,

AND WE'RE GOING TO STICK IT

TO THEM AS HARD AS WE CAN,

JUST LIKE HOLLANDE DOES IN

FRANCE.

AND THAT IS A SURE RECIPE

FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF YOUR

SOCIETY.

SO MITT ROMNEY TOLD IT LIKE

IT WAS, HE TOLD IT STRONG,

AND IF OBAMA IS SHOCKED,

TOUGH LUCK.

LEE?

Lee: PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

FILING A TRADE COMPLAINT

AGAINST CHINA.

HE WANTS THE WORLD TRADE

ORGANIZATION TO SANCTION

CHINA FOR SUBSIDIZING

AMERICAN VEHICLES AND AUTO

PARTS AND COSTING AMERICANS

JOBS.

IT ALSO COMES AFTER MITT

ROMNEY RAN AN AD ACCUSING

OBAMA OF NOT TAKING ACTION

AGAINST CHINA'S CHEATING ON

TRADE.

OBAMA SAID HE HAS FILED MORE

TRADE SUITS AGAINST CHINA

THAN PRESIDENT GEORGE W.

BUSH.

ROMMY CRITICIZED THIM

CRITICIZING HIM FOR DOING IT

DAYS BEFORE ELECTION DAY.

PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS IN

CHICAGO ARE STRIKING.

THAT LEFT MANY STUDENTS WITH

NOWHERE TO GO.

CHURCHES ACROSS THE CITY

HAVE BEEN OPENING THEIR

DOORS TO HELP THE CHILDREN.

WE SPOKE WITH A PASTOR IN

THE ARM ARMITIST BAPTIST

CHURCH THAT ARE PROVIDING

MEALS.

THEY WERE ALL IDENTIFIED

BY GRADE.

AND WE WERE READY TO GO WITH

EVERY GRADE, K UP THROUGH

12, AND ASSIGNED AND GROUPED

AND TAKEN TO THEIR CLASS

AREAS.

WE WENT AROUND THE COMMUNITY

AND JUST ASKED RESTAURANTS,

LOOK, THIS IS WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

WOULD YOU GUYS BE INTERESTED

IN DONATING.

SO EVERY DAY WE'VE HAD A

DIFFERENT RESTAURANT FEED

OUR KIDS.

Lee: PAT, SOME 350,000

STUDENTS HAVE BEEN OUT OF

CLASS SINCE THE STRIKE BEGAN

LAST WEEK.

Pat: YOU KNOW, LEE, THE

GREAT MEN OF OUR SOCIETY,

AND YOU GO BACK TO FRANKLIN

ROOSEVELT, AND OTHERS WHO

JUST DECRIED THE MERGE GENS

EMERGENCE OF PUBLIC SERVICE

UNIONS.

THEY SHOULDN'T BE STRIKING.

THEY'RE EMPLOYEES OF THE

GOVERNMENT.

THE ONLY PERSON THAT IS

GOING TO PICK UP THE TAB FOR

THEM ARE THE TAXPAYERS.

AND AS THEY GET MORE AND

MORE POLITICAL POWER AND

THEY GET MORE AND MORE

PEOPLE VOTED INTO OFFICE AND

THEY VOTE THEMSELVES GREATER

BENEFITS.

THE TEACHERS IN CHICAGO GET

PAID $76,000 A YEAR.

THAT'S A HUGE AMOUNT OF

MONEY FOR TEACHERS.

IT IS 40, 50% HIGHER THAN

THE AVERAGE WAGE OF THE

AVERAGE WORKER IN ILLINOIS.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

THEY WANT MORE MONEY.

THERE IS GOING TO BE AN

AUTOMATIC BUMP IN THERE OF

MORE PAY FOR THEM.

BUT THEY'VE GOTTEN --

INSTEAD OF WORKING FIVE AND

A HALF HOURS A DAY, THEY'RE

GOING TO BE WORKING SEVEN,

LIKE WHAT A BIG DEAL.

AND THAT'S THEIR

CONCESSION.

I KNOW YOU JUST LOVE THOSE

TEACHERS, THE LAST TIME WE

TALKED.

HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR MIND,

I HOPE.

Kristi: NO.

OF COURSE I LOVE THE

TEACHERS.

I THINK MY ISSUE IS NOW IT

IS A LOSE-LOSE SITUATION.

THE TEACHERS ARE LOSING OUT,

THE KIDS ARE LOSING OUT, AND

THE COMMUNITY IS LOSING

OUT.

BUT I HAVE TO TURN TO THE

POSITIVE, HOW PHENOMENAL TO

SEE CHURCHES RISE UP AND

TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS.

MY HEART IS WARM --

Pat: I'M GLAD YOUR

HEART IS WARMED, BUT WE LET

THIS JUNK CONTINUE.

WE'VE GOT ROM EMMANUEL FROM

CHICAGO, SAYING TO THE

TEACHERS, YOU'VE GOT TO DO

SOMETHING FOR STANDARDS.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME

CRITERIA THAT YOU WORK UNDER

TO TEACH THESE CHILDREN AND

TO ASSESS YOUR SKILLS.

AND THE TEACHERS DIDN'T WANT

THAT.

THEY DIDN'T WANT TO BE

TESTED ON THEIR

PERFORMANCE.

AND THEY ALSO WANT ALL KINDS

OF TENURE.

AND SOONER OR LATER, YOU

HAVE TO FIRE INCOMPETENT

PEOPLE.

BUT IT IS GOING TO BE

VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FIRE

ONE OF THOSE TEACHERS.

IT WILL TAKE YEARS, AND IT

HAPPENS IN SCHOOL SYSTEMS

ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THAT MICHELLE REID IN

WASHINGTON WAS TRYING TO

MAKE SOME CHANGES, AND, BOY,

THEY BOUNCED HER.

THEY WEREN'T GOING TO STAND

FOR IT.

AND IF SOMEBODY COMES OUT

AGAINST THESE TEACHERS'

PERKS, THEN THAT PERSON IS

AGAINST EDUCATION.

IT IS NOT A GOOD THING.

FREE ENTERPRISE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

FREE ENTERPRISE, SURVIVAL OF

THE FITTEST.

THE PEOPLE WHO PRODUCE

SHOULD BE REWARDED, AND

THOSE WHO DON'T PRODUCE

SHOULD BE PUT INTO SOME

OTHER OCCUPATION.

KRISTI?

Kristi: WELL, COMING

UP, ELECTION DAY IS JUST

SEVEN WEEKS AWAY, AND FOR

ONE PASTOR, THAT MEANS IT'S

TIME FOR AMERICA TO WAKE

UP.

WELL, BISHOP HARRY JACKSON

TELLS US WHAT'S AT STAKE UP

NEXT ON "THE 700 CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

BISHOP HARRY JACKSON FELT

THE CALLING TO BECOME A

MINISTER AT AN EARLY AGE.

HE FELT SO STRONGLY ABOUT

THAT THAT HE ONCE TURNED

DOWN ADMITTANCE INTO HARVARD

BUSINESS SCHOOL.

AND LATER PASSED UP A

LUCRATIVE JOB ON WALL

STREET.

JACKSON EVENTUALLY BECAME A

PREACHER, STARTING IN INNER

CITY CLEVELAND.

NOW HE PASTORS A CHURCH IN

OUR NATION'S CAPITAL, WHERE

HE STANDS ON THE FRONT LINES

IN AMERICA'S FIGHT FOR

REVIVAL.

Reporter: BISHOP HARRY

JACKSON, SENIOR PASTOR OFPg

HOPE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., SAYS

AMERICA NEEDS TO PRAY FOR

OUR SPIRITUAL AWAKENING.

AS THE FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN

OF THE HIGH IMPACT

LEADERSHIP COALITION, HE

SAYS THE CHURCH MUST LEAD

THE WAY.

FROM ABORTION TO SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, HE SAYS THERE IS

AN ANTICHURCH, ANTI-FAITH

MOVEMENT ON THE RISE IN THIS

COUNTRY, AND IT IS TIME TO

WAKE UP AND PRAY FOR OUR

NATION.

Pat: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB" AN

EXTRAORDINARY LEADER, BISHOP

HARRY JACKSON.

[APPLAUSE]

GOOD TO SEE YOU, PAT.

Pat: YOU WERE ON MSNBC,

WHICH IS LOSING RATINGS

CONSISTENTLY.

AND YOU WERE WITH CHRIS

MATTHEWS, AND HE SAID HE

HOPED YOU EVOLVED IN YOUR

VIEW ABOUT HOMOSEXUAL

MARRIAGE.

COULD YOU TELL US ABOUT

THAT?

CHRIS WAS REALLY PUTTING

A LOT OF PRESSURE ON ME

BECAUSE HE FELT I WAS KIND

OF OLD SCHOOL ON MY

ATTITUDE.

AND AS YOU RECALL, PRESIDENT

OBAMA IN MAY CAME OUT AND

TALKED ABOUT HIS ATTITUDES

CHANGING.

AND THOSE FEW DAYS AFTER

THAT, I WAS ON WITH AL

SHARPTON, AND AL SHARPTON

AND A BAPTIST PREACHER FROM

THE D.C. AREA, CLIPPED THAT

TOGETHER, AND TRIED TO BEAT

ME DOWN.

AND MICHAEL AIR DYSON, IF

YOU KNOW HIM, A BLACK LEC

INTELLECTUAL, SO TO SPEAK,

ALSO AN ORDAINED MINISTER,

BROUGHT ME ON THE SHOW AND

TRIED TO BEAT ME UP.

I THINK WHERE WE ARE IS THAT

AMERICAN RELIGION HAS GOT TO

DECIDE IF THEY WANT TO

FOLLOW BIBLICAL

CHRISTIANITY, OR LIKE THE

OLD TESTAMENT, IT WANTS TO

DO SOME SORT OF SAN

SANCRITISM.

AND I BELIEVE THAT THE

FINANCIAL CHALLENGES IN OUR

NATION ARE NOT JUST

PHILOSOPHICAL OR

POLICY-DRIVEN, BUT THEY'RE

MORALLY SPIRITUAL.

AND IF WE BELIEVE THAT, AND

WE GET THINGS RIGHT

SPIRITUALLY, GOD WILL LIFT

HIS HEDGE OF PROTECTION

AROUND US, AND ECONOMICS

WILL BEGIN TO THRIVE

BETTER.

Pat: ARE WE GOING TO DO

IT IN THE CHURCH?

ARE WE GOING TO WAIT FOR

SOME PRESIDENT TO CALL US TO

PRAYER?

WHERE IS IT GOING TO COME

FROM, IN YOUR OPINION?

I BELIEVE YOU'RE DOING

THE RIGHT THING IN CALLING

YOUR PARTNERS TO PRAY FOR

THE NATION.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO GO TO A NEW LEVEL OF

BOLDNESS.

WE HAVE TO TAKE ISAIAH 60

AND SAY WE MUST ARISE AND

SHINE NOW.

ISAIAH 59, FOR THOSE WHO ARE

BIBLICAL SCHOLARS, SAYS THAT

TRUTH HAS FALLEN IN THE

STREET.

THERE IS NO JUSTICE

ANYWHERE.

AND IT IS A VERY DARK TIME.

IN RESPONSE TO THAT, THE

LORD SAYS "ARISE, SHINE."

SO A GROUP OF US HAVE GOT TO

DECLARE TRUTH.

WE HOPE OTHERS WILL DO THREE

THINGS: RECOGNIZE THEY'RE

OFF KILTER, AND THEN THEY

WILL REPENT, AND THEN GOD

CAN RESTORE.

THE REVEREND, AL SHARPTON,

WAS REBUKING ME ON HIS SHOW

ABOUT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THIS PAST WEEK I HAD A

REQUEST TO COME TACK T --

TALK TO A CONGRESSIONAL

BLACK CAUCUS, AND THEY

WANTED TO HAVE A CLOSED-DOOR

THING WITH THEIR PEOPLE, BUT

THEY WANTED SIX ON ONE

CLOSED DOOR TO TALK ABOUT

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

AND FIVE OF THE SIX WERE

ORDAINED MINISTERS.

SO I'M THINKING, WE'RE

DEALING WITH POSTATE

CONCEPTS OF FAITH.

I SAID MAKE IT OPEN, MAKE IT

THREE ON THREE, PUT IT ON

C-SPAN, AND LET THE WORLD

SEE.

AND LET ME JUST QUESTION

THEM AND BASICALLY SAY

SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

THE BIBLE SAYS "X," "Y,"

"Z," AND SAY YOU WHAT?

, AND LET THAT BE HEARD BY

THE NATION.

BECAUSE I THINK WE'RE MAKING

FUNDAMENTAL CHOICES.

Pat: YOU TALK ABOUT

SOME OF THESE BLACK

LEADERS -- AL SHARPTON IS A

FORMER PENTECOSTAL, IN THE

CHURCH OF GOD, AND TO TURN

THAT FAR AWAY FROM IT, BUT

THE PEOPLE IN THE PEWS DON'T

BUY THAT STUFF, DO THEY?

THEY'RE VERY CONSERVATIVE.

RIGHT.

NOW A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

SAYING THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

VOTE AT ALL ON SO MANY

DIFFERENT LEVELS.

THEY'RE SAYING THIS THING IS

SO DARK.

BUT THEY FAIL TO UNDERSTAND

THAT IN A SOCIETY LIKE OURS,

WE HAVE FIRST TO PRAY AND

GET RIGHT WITH GOD, AND THEN

WITHOUT ESPOUSING PEOPLE AND

FOLLOWING ANY PARTY --

BECAUSE I'VE GOT WHAT THEY

CALL BLUE DOG DEMOCRATIC

FRIENDS, WHO ARE PRO-LIFE,

AND I THINK WE'VE GOT TO

MAKE SURE WE DON'T ADVOCATE

OUR OPPORTUNITY TO STAND FOR

CHRIST.

Pat: THE AMERICAN

COMMUNITY WHO ARE FOR OBAMA,

THEY'RE GOING TO VOTE FOR

HIM NO MATTER WHAT HE

BELIEVES.

IS THAT CORRECT?

I DON'T THINK THAT IS

CORRECT.

I'M ON A SEVEN-STATE TOUR,

AND I'M CHALLENGING PASTORS

OF ALL RACES TO COME OUT AND

TALK WITH US ABOUT THE ISSUE

OF MARRIAGE.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS IN OUR

501C 3.

BUT I'M CHALLENGING IT AND

SAYING WE NEED A NEW RAINBOW

COALITION.

WE NEED TO STEAL BACK THE

SIGN OF GOD'S COVENANT.

AND YOU, FOR YEARS, HAVE

PIONEERED THIS THING,

BLACKS, BROWNS, ASIANS, ALL

WORKING TOGETHER.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED.

I BELIEVE IF WE MAKE THE

WRONG CHOICES IN THIS

ELECTION GOD IS NOT GOING TO

FALL OFF HIS THRONE, BUT IT

IS GOING TO BE MORE

DIFFICULT.

BECAUSE HIS HAND IS ON

AMERICA NOW, AND HE'LL PUT

MORE PRESSURE ON US

ECONOMICALLY.

IF YOU'RE FIGHTING GOD, AND

HE IS THE GUY PUTTING US

UNDER THESE ECONOMIC

PROBLEMS, AND YOU KEEP

SAYING WE CAN DO IT, WE CAN

DO, IT AND WE KEEP

EMPHASIZING RACIAL DIVISION,

AND ALL OF THESE KINDS OF

THINGS, INSTEAD OF HUMBLING

OURSELVES UNDER THE MIGHTY

HANDLE OF GOD, AND THEN IT

WILL GET HARDER AND HARDER

AND HARDER NO MATTER HOW

SMART WE ARE OR THINK WE

ARE.

Pat: BISHOP JACKSON IS

GOING TO JOIN US IN PRAYER.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR THIS

NATION.

IF YOU WANT TO HEAR MORE

FROM THIS TREMENDOUS SERVANT

OF GOD, GO TO OUR WEBSITE.

HE WILL BE LEADING A SPECIAL

CHAPEL SERVICE, AND IT WILL

BE STREAMED ALL ACROSS THE

NATION AND AROUND THE

WORLD.

GOD BLESS YOU, BROTHER.

THANK YOU, PAT FOR HAVING

ME AND FORTUNAT FOR WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

Kristi: DURING THAT CAP

PE CHAPEL SERVICE, WE'LL BE

HAVING A SPECIAL DAY OF

PRAY.

IF YOU'RE A CBN PARTNER, YOU

MAY HAVE RECEIVED THIS

PACKET, AND IT'S CALLED

"PRAY FOR AMERICA."

AND WE WANT YOU TO SEND YOUR

PRAYERS AND WE'LL ADD THEM

TO THE FLAG BEHIND ME.

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO

ELECTION DAY.

SO THE KEY IS, YOU'VE GOT TO

GIVE US A CALL AT

1-800-759-0700.

AND YOU CAN ALSO ASK FOR

THIS SPECIAL PRAYER BOOKLET,

HERE WE GO, IT'S CALLED

"STEPS TO REVIVAL IN

AMERICA."

PAT, COME ON.

Pat: I'LL ASK BISHOP

JACKSON TO JOIN US, TOO.

WE'VE HAD 27,000 SO FAR WHO

SAID THEY HAVE PRAYER

REQUESTS OR THEY'RE GOING TO

BE PRAYING FOR AMERICA.

YOU CAN GET ON THE OTHER

SIDE OF THIS PRETTY GIRL, IF

YOU WANT TO.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE'RE

HAVING DAY AFTER DAY AFTER

DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE

NATION.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO JOIN

TOGETHER.

YOU HAVE A COUPLE?

Kristi: I DO HAVE A

COUPLE.

MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

SENDING THEIR PRAYER

REQUESTS, ONE, REVIVAL IN

AMERICA AND PEACE IN

JERUSALEM.

PRAY FOR GOD TO RAISE UP MEN

AND WOMEN IN THE UNITED

STATES.

TO BE RESTORED TO ITS FORMER

STRENGTH, AND ONE MORE, THAT

THE NATIONAL DEBT WILL BE

DECREASED AND JOBS

INCREASED.

I KNOW WE CAN ALL AGREE ON

THAT ONE.

Pat: LET'S JOIN

TOGETHER.

BROTHER JACKSON, WILL YOU

LEAD US, AND KRISTI AND I

WILL JOIN AND AGREE TOGETHER

FOR THIS NATION.

LORD, WE FIRST LIFT UP

WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE ONE OF

AMERICA'S FOREMOST SINS, AND

THAT IS THE SIN OF RACIAL

DIVISION.

LORD, ASSEMBLY IS PRIDE IN

THE FLESH.

SO, LORD, WE ASK YOU TO HELP

US HUMBLE OURSELVES.

LORD GOD, WE ASK THAT AS WE

HUMBLE OURSELVES AND LET OUR

IDENTITY BE IN CHRIST.

LORD, I'M ASKING ON BEHALF

OF THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND

HISPANIC COMMUNITIES, LORD

THAT WE LAY ASIDE OUR

BITTERNESS AND WE SAY WE'RE

GOING TO TRUST YOU AND WE'RE

GOING TO VOTE VERTICAL.

WE'RE GOING TO VOTE OUR

VALUES, WE'RE GOING TO VOTE

THE BIBLE.

WE'RE GOING TO LET YOU

DIRECT.

WE'RE ASKING FOR OUR

EVANGELICAL BROTHER TO VOTE

REVIVAL AS WELL.

LORD, LET US NOT STAY AT

HOME.

WE'RE GOING TO SAY WE'RE

GOING TO RISE UP AND

CHAMPION THE VALUES OF

CHRIST IN THIS GENERATION.

AND EVEN THOUGH THAT SOME OF

THE CANDIDATES MAY NOT BE OF

OUR FAITH, IF THEY SUPPORT

OUR VALUES, THEN LET'S

PROMOTE THOSE WHO PROMOTE

OBEDIENCE TO YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Pat: FATHER, WE ASK FOR

A GREAT MOVE OF YOUR

SPIRIT.

LORD, COME DOWN.

COME DOWN AND HEAR THE CRY

OF YOUR PEOPLE, FORGIVE OUR

SINS, AND HEAL OUR LAND.

WE THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE

GOING TO DO AS WE CONTINUE

TO PRAY.

PRAY FOR THIS NATION IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

AMEN.

Kristi: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

Kristi: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

Pat: WE'LL BE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

.

Lee: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION

FOR MARRIAGE SAYS IT'S

HELPING DEFEAT POLITICIANS

WHO SUPPORTED SAME-SEX IN

NEW YORK STATE.

IT HELPED UNSEAT TWO

INCUMBENT SENATORS IN THE

STATE'S RECENT ELECTION.

TWO OTHER INCUMBENTS WERE

DEFEATED IN EARLIER

PRIMARIES.

THEY WILL NOT TOLERATE

POLITICIANS WHO REDEFINE

MARRIAGE.

THEY TARGETED SIX LAWMAKERS

WHO TURNED ON TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE, AND THEY WON'T

STOP UNTIL THE FINAL TWO ARE

UNSEATED.

CHRISTIANS ARE REACHING OUT

TO THOUSANDS OF DRUG ADDICTS

IIN COLUMNIA.

THESE CHRISTIANS SHARED

THEIR OWN STORIES AND

OFFERED PRAYER AND A HOT

MEAL.

AT LEAST 65 STREET PEOPLE

WERE TAKEN TO RECOVERY

CENTERS TO FIND A CHANCE FOR

A NEW LIFE.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND KRISTI

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS.

COLIA

Kristi: WELL, WE'RE IN

DAY TWO OF OUR ANNUAL SEVEN

DAYS OF PRAYER CELEBRATION.

DURING THIS WEEK, THE STAFF

OF CBN AND REGION GATHERED

TOGETHER TO PRAY FOR YOU,

OUR CBN PARTNERS.

YESTERDAY WE HEARD A MESSAGE

FROM AUTHOR AND EVANGELIST

DOUG SHEET.

THIS IS ALL ABOUT HEART.

THIS IS ALL ABOUT

CHARACTER.

THIS IS ALL ABOUT GOD

NEEDING A PEOPLE THAT WILL

SAY, I WON'T BACK UP IN THE

FACE OF ADVERSITY, AND I

WON'T LOSE MY COURAGE.

I WON'T LOSE MY HEART, AND I

WOULDN'T BECOME SLOPPY IN

DOING WHAT IS RIGHT.

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, NO

HOW LONG IT TAKES, NO MATTER

WHAT IS THROWN AT ME, NO

MATTER HOW MANY BATTLES I'M

Kristi: THAT'S JUST ONE

OF MANY PRAYERS THAT WE ARE

IN, PLEASE CALL US ANY

TIME.

AT THAT NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700, AND YOU CAN

ALSO LOG ON TO cbn.com AND

PLACE YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS

THERE.

NO MATTER WHAT, WE ALL WANT

YOU TO KNOW HOW MUCH WE LOVE

YOU.

WE WANT TO SHOW YOU AN

AMAZING STORY OF ANSWERED

PRAYER, ONE THAT HAPPENED

RIGHT HERE IN OUR OWN

BACKYARD, IN VIRGINIA

BEACH.

THIS CITY IS HOME TO ONE OF

THE LARGEST AIR STATIONS IN

THE WORLD.

BUT IN RECENT YEARS, THE

GOVERNMENT AND THE MILITARY

OPENLY WORRIED ABOUT HAVING

MILITARY JETS FLYING SO

CLOSE TO HOMES.

AND WHAT HAPPENED

LAST APRIL

SHOWED US ALL WHY.

Reporter: IT WAS GOOD

FRIDAY, A LITTLE PAST NOON.

SCHOOL THAT JUST BEEN LET

OUT FOR EASTER BREAK IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA.

WHEN SOMETHING COMPLETELY

UNEXPECTED HAPPEN.

THE AIR STARTED

VIBRATING.

I JUST HEARD A LOUD

NOISE, AND IT WENT CHIKA

BOOM, BOOM, BOOM.

THERE WAS THIS HEAVY,

DARK SMOKE GOING BY THE

WINDOW.

I'M LIKE, MY GOD, NO, NO,

NO!

I'M SCREAMING, NO, NO, NO!

Reporter: IT WAS AN

F818 HARNETT THAT

MALFUNCTIONS.

IT SLAMMED INTO THE MAYFAIR

APARTMENT COMPLEX IN A

HIGHLY POPULATED RESIDENTIAL

AREA.

A NAVY PLANE JUST WENT

DOWN OFF OF 24th STREET.

THE APARTMENT BUILDING IS

COMPLETELY DESTROYED.

OH, MY GOD, IT IS

TERRIBLE.

THE WHOLE THING IS ON FIRE.

IT IS A SENIOR COMMUNITY.

OH, MY GOD, ALL OF THOSE OLD

PEOPLE.

OH, MY GOD.

Reporter: THE JET'S

TWO-MAN CREW EJECTED JUST

50 FEET ABOVE GROUND.

I SAW THE PILOT LAYING ON

THE GROUND, ON HIS SIDE,

HANDS IN THE AIR, WHITE AS A

SHEET.

HE WAS STILL CONNECTED TO

HIS PARACHUTE, WHICH WAS

CONNECTED TO THE ROOF OF

THIS BUILDING HERE.

WE HAD TO CUT THE LINES, GET

HIM FREE OF THE PARACHUTE.

A BUNCH OF US PICKED HIM UP

AND DRAGGED HIM TO THE FRONT

PARKING LOT AREA, AWAY FROM

THE FLAMES.

THE HEAVY, BLACK, THICK

SMOKE STARTED TO COME OVER

THE ROOFTOP HERE.

I KNEW WE HAD A MATTER OF

MINUTES BEFORE TH THE FIRE

IT WAS GOING TO COME THIS

WAY.

Reporter: COUNTLESS

EMERGENCY RESPONDERS RAN TO

THE SCENE, AND EVERYONE

EXPECTED THE WORST.

I SAW IT GO IN, AND I

THOUGHT, OH, GOSH, YOU'RE

ALL DEAD.

AND I LOOKED BACK AT THE

BUILDING, AND I JUST COUNTED

THE PEOPLE THAT HAD

PERISHED, BECAUSE I'M HERE

EVERY DAY, RETIRED, I DON'T

GO ANYWHERE.

I GOT TO THE FRONT AND I

LOOKED, THEY'RE DEAD, PASSED

AWAY.

Reporter: MAYOR WILL

SESAMS OF VIRGINIA BEACH

FEARED THE SAME.

WHEN I CAME OVER HERE,

ABOUT RIGHT WHERE I'M

STANDING, THERE WAS A

MASSIVE FIRE GOING ON.

THERE WERE BUILDINGS OVER TO

MY RIGHT THAT WERE PRETTY

WELL DEMOLISHED.

THE FIRST QUESTION I ASKED

THE FIRE CHIEF, HOW MANY

CASUALTIES DO WE HAVE?

Reporter: AND AS THE

TRAGEDY UNFOLDED THROUGHOUT

THE DAY, IT BECAME WORLDWIDE

NEWS AND MANY PEOPLE

PRAYED.

Kristi: MAN, I'M

RIVETED BY THAT VIDEO.

JOINING US FOR MORE ON THIS

STORY IS EARL MEYER.

HE IS THE MANAGER OF THE

APARTMENT COMPLEX THAT WAS

HIT BY THAT JET.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

THANK YOU.

IT IS A PRIVILEGE.

Kristi: I WAS ON THE

PHONE WITH A FRIEND OF MINE,

AND HE WAS DRIVING AND SAID,

OH, MY GOODNESS, KRISTI, A

PLANE JUST CRASHED INTO AN

APARTMENT COMPLEX.

I'M LIKE, SERIOUS?

HERE IN VIRGINIA BEACH.

HOW DID YOU FIND OUT AS THE

MANAGER?

I JUST GOT ON THE

INTERSTATE THAT MORNING, AND

I WAS ON THE PHONE WITH MY

GRANDCHILDREN'S GRANDMOTHER,

AND I SAID I'VE GOT TO GO, I

THINK I HAVE A LEAK.

AND HE SAID, THE APARTMENTS

ARE BLOWING UP.

AND HE CALLED ME BACK AND

SAID, NO, IT WAS A JET THAT

CRASHED.

OBVIOUSLY, MY HEART WENT TO

MY STOMACH.

AND MY GRANDDAUGHTERS WERE

SITTING BESIDE ME IN THE

FRONT OF MY PICKUP TRUCK.

AND THEY SAID, WHAT

HAPPENED, PAPA?

AND I SAID SOMETHING

HORRIBLE, A JET JUST CRASHED

INTO THE APARTMENTS.

AND THEY SAID, WHAT ARE WE

GOING TO DO?

AND I SAID THE FIRST THING

WE CAN DO IS PRAY.

I REMEMBER ASKING GOD -- I

PLACED HIM ON THE SCENE AND

WE JUST PRAYED, AND THEN MY

PHONE KEPT RINGING AND

STORIES KEPT GETTING BIGGER

AND BIGGER AS EACH STORY

CAME IN.

Kristi: IT'S

FASCINATING, BECAUSE THE

VERY FIRST THING YOU HAD

SAID WAS TO PRAY.

AND THIS IS NOT NEW.

BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN PRAYING

OVER THE APARTMENT BUILDING

FOR YEARS.

11 YEARS.

I ALWAYS HAD MY ROUTINE AND

I WALKED THE GROUND.

SEEING IT IS AN ADULT

COMMUNITY, I'VE SEEN A LOT

OF TENANTS PASS AWAY.

I JUST KNEW THAT I HAD TO

PRAY FOR THE COMPLEX.

AND I ASKED GOD EACH DAY TO,

YOU KNOW, PROTECT MY TENANTS

AND TO BLESS THEM, AND TO

KEEP HIS EYES OVER THEM.

Kristi: AND GOD HONORED

YOUR PRAYER, EARL.

YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE ABOUT

THIS?

I BELIEVE BECAUSE YOU WERE

SO DILIGENT TO PRAY FOR THAT

COMMUNITY, THAT A MIRACLE

HAPPENED.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THAT

MIRACLE.

HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVED IN THE

BUILDING?

I HAD 84 PEOPLE IN THAT

COMPLEX.

Kristi: AND EVERYONE,

MYSELF INCLUDED, WERE

WATCHING THE NEWS.

AND WE KNEW ESPECIALLY IN AN

OLDER COMMUNITY, MOST OF THE

PEOPLE HAD TO HAVE BEEN

DEAD, BUT THAT WASN'T THE

CASE.

YES.

IN MY MIND, I HAD AT LEAST

10, 20 PEOPLE DEAD, EVEN

MORE, BY THE PHONE CALLS.

I'M TRYING TO GET UP THE

INTERSTATE, WHICH WAS

ANOTHER MIRACLE, FOR GOD TO

GET ME FROM WHERE I WAS THAT

CLOSE.

IT IS A MIRACLE BECAUSE THE

TOWN WAS IN DEADLOCK.

FOR SOME REASON HE JUST GOT

ME THERE.

Kristi: YOU GOT THERE,

AND ONE OF THE THINGS YOU

DID, YOUR OFFICE WAS BURNED,

AND YOU MADE YOUR TRUCK YOUR

OFFICE AND YOU WERE DILIGENT

TO FIND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF

THOSE TENANTS.

IT WAS IMPORTANT.

I NEEDED TO SEE OR HEAR

THEIR VOICE.

Kristi: HOW MANY DID

YOU FIND?

THAT NIGHT I FOUND ALL OF

THEM, ACCEPT FOUR.

WHICH MADE FOR A LONG

NIGHT.

Kristi: DURING THAT

LONG NIGHT, WHAT WERE YOU

DOING FOR THOSE FOUR

PEOPLE?

I PACED THE FLOOR AND

PRAYED.

Kristi: TELL ME WHAT

HAPPENED THAT NEXT MORNING.

EACH DAY I WAS THERE, I

GOT THERE EARLY, DAY BREAK.

AND I THINK IT WAS EARLY IN

THAT MORNING I HAD CONTACTED

THE OTHER FOUR THAT WAS

MISSING.

AND I'LL NEVER FORGET THAT

FEELING LOOKING UP TO THE

SKY AND JUST SAYING, YOU

KNOW, THIS WAS BIG.

THIS WAS A BIG ORDEAL.

BUT YOU ARE BIGGER.

Kristi: COME ON, EARL,

IS THAT NOT IT.

AND IT WAS A SPECIAL DAY

WHEN ALL

OF THIS HAPPENED.

WASN'T IT GOOD FRIDAY?

IT WAS.

IT WAS DEFINITELY THE GOOD

FRIDAY MIRACLE.

I DON'T THINK ANYBODY CAN,

YOU KNOW -- WHEN SOMETHING

BIG HAPPENS AND PEOPLE GET

KILLED OR HURT, EVERYBODY

SAYS WHERE WAS GOD.

WHERE WAS GOD?

I CAN TELL YOU WHERE HE WAS

THAT DAY.

Kristi: EARL, THANK YOU

SO MUCH.

I APPRECIATE YOUR DILIGENCE

AND FAITHFULNESS, AND I FLOW

THA FLOW -- KNOW THAT ALL

84 OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS ARE

THANKING YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

HERE ARE THE FACTS: THE JET

CRASHED INTO AN APARTMENT IN

THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY.

FLAMES ENGULFED SEVERAL

BUILDINGS, AND EVERYONE AT

THE SCENE EXPECTED THE

WORSE.

BUT NO ONE DIED, AS EARL

SAID.

NOT THE PILOTS, NOT THE

RESIDENTS, AND AS SOME OF

THE TENANTS WILL TELL YOU,

IT IS NO COINCIDENCE.

I'VE HEARD TOO MANY

STORIES THROUGH THIS TRAGEDY

OF, WELL, I SHOULD HAVE DONE

THIS, BUT I DID THIS

INSTEAD.

BEN LIVED AND WORKED AT

THE MAY FAIR MUSE BEFORE THE

NAVY JETS DESTROYED HIS

HOME.

THERE IS NO EARTHLY

REASON FOR ME TO BE STANDING

HERE TALKING TO YOU TODAY.

I TAKE

MY LUNCH RELIGIOUSLY

AT 11:30 TO 12:30 TODAY.

BY ALL RIGHTS, I SHOULD HAVE

BEEN IN MY HOUSE PLAYING

COMPUTER GAMES, BUT GOD TOLD

ME TO SET SOME MORE TILE.

SO FIVE MINUTES TO 12:00,

AND I'M PAST LUNCH.

I'M GOING TO GO TO LUNCH.

AND SOMETHING SAID, SET

THESE EIGHT MORE TILES.

I SAY EIGHT MORE TILES SAVED

MY LIFE, BUT GOD SAVED MY

LIFE.

Reporter: THE JET

CRASHED THROUGH BEN'S

APARTMENT BUILDING AND SET

HIS PLACE ON FIRE.

BUT HIS LIFE WAS SPARED, AS

WAS HIS WIFE AND HIS

FATHER-IN-LAW'S LIFE.

WE HAD TO TAKE HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL A COUPLE MONTHS

BEFORE.

HE HAD SOME COMPLICATIONS

AND HAD TO GO TO REHAB.

IF HE HADN'T HAVE GONE TO

REHAB, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN

HOME.

A WEEK BEFORE THE CRASH,

THEY CHANGED MY WIFE'S

SCHEDULE.

IF THEY HASN'T CHANGED HER

SCHEDULE, SHE WOULD HAVE

BEEN SITTING ON THE COUCH

WHEN THE PLANE CAME THROUGH

THE FRONT WINDOW.

Reporter: SANDY HALL

WOULD HAVE NORMALLY BEEN

HOME AS WELL, WHEN THE JET

CRASHED, BUT HER PLANS

CHANGED AT THE LAST MINUTE,

SAVING HER LIFE, TOO.

I HAVE A CLEANING

BUSINESS, AND I HAD A CLIENT

WHO ASKED ME TO COME LATER,

BEING GOOD FRIDAY.

AND I TEXTED HER BACK AND

SAID, HOW ABOUT AROUND

10:00, AND SHE SAID

PERFECT.

SO I LEFT HERE AT 20 TO

O 10:00, INSTEAD OF LEAVING

AT 8:00.

NORMALLY I'M HOME AT NOON.

IT'S ABOUT 12:30, QUARTER TO

1:00, WHEN I GET THE PHONE

CALL AT WORK THAT A JET HAD

CRASHED.

Reporter: WHILE SANDY

WAS OUT, HER APARTMENT AND

EVERYTHING IN IT WENT UP IN

FLAMES.

BUT EVEN PEOPLE THAT WERE

HOME MADE IT OUT SAFELY.

CHERYL MCKEE OWNS A PET

SUPPLY STORE RIGHT NEXT

DOOR.

I ACTUALLY WATCHED A MAN

WALK OUT OF THE APARTMENT

THAT THE PLANE WENT IN.

HE CAME OUT THE FRONT DOOR.

THE PLANE WENT DOWN THE

BACK.

AND HE CAME OUT AND DIDN'T

REALLY REALIZE SOMETHING HAD

HAPPENED.

Reporter: LINDA WARNAK

WAS IN HER SECOND STORY

APARTMENT WITH HER

GRANDCHILDREN WHEN THE JET

IMPACTED.

BUT THEY, TOO, MADE IT OUT

WITHOUT A SCRATCH.

PEOPLE ACROSS, IN THE

OTHER TOWNHOUSE SAYS THE

HEAT WAS SO INTENSE THEY

COULDN'T COME OUT THEIR

FRONT DOORS.

THEY WENT OUT THEIR BACK

DOORS.

I DIDN'T EVEN FEEL THE

FLAMES.

ME, EITHER.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE GOD

PROTECTED US.

GUESS WHAT?

I FELT GOD AROUND ME,

HUGGING ME.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AT ONE POINT, SHE SAID

GOD ENCAPSULATED US IN A

BUBBLE AND SAVED US FROM THE

HEAT.

Reporter: WHAT COULD

HAVE GONE DOWN IN HISTORY AS

A TREMENDOUS TRAGEDY IS

REMEMBERED MORE TODAY AS A

MIRACLE.

GOD DEFINITELY WAS ON THE

SCENE THAT DAY, BECAUSE IF

IT WENT A FEW FEET FURTHER,

WE WOULDN'T BE HERE TO TELL

THE STORY.

IT DEFINITELY MAKES YOU

THINK THAT YOU MIGHT NOT BE

THINKING OF GOD, BUT HE IS

RIGHT THERE ALL THE TIME

THINKING ABOUT YOU.

WHAT ELSE KEPT ME FROM

BEING IN MY HOME THAT DAY.

WHAT

ELSE

KEPT

ANYBODY

FROM

BEING HURT.

NOT EVEN THE PILOT.

IF THERE EVER HAS BEEN A

MIRACLE AND HAD PRAYERS

ANSWERED, THIS WAS THE

CASE.

GOD HAD HIS HAND ALL

AROUND US.

Kristi: THAT IS A CLEAR

EXAMPLE OF GOD ANSWERING

PRAYERS, AND HE IS GOING TO

DO THE SAME THING FOR US

TODAY.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

FABULOUS?

Kristi: ISN'T IT

AMAZING.

Pat: PEOPLE ARE JUST

STUNNED.

BUT THERE IS NO WAY THAT ALL

OF THOSE PEOPLE, EVERY ONE

IN THAT APARTMENT COMPLEX --

EVERY ONE WAS OUT SAFELY.

EVERY ONE.

Kristi: BECAUSE IT WAS

OLDER INDIVIDUALS, SOME SAID

EVEN FOR SOME OF THEM, THEIR

MOBILITY WAS SO SLOW, IT

WOULD TAKE THEM A HALF HOUR

TO GO TO THE MAILBOX.

IN OTHER WORDS, IT WAS

DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO MOVE,

BUT, YET, EVERYONE GOT OUT.

Pat: SOME MAY HAVE BEEN

IN CHURCH, IT WAS GOOD

FRIDAY, BUT IT WAS A

MIRACLE.

SOMEBODY SAYS, I WANT

AMERICA TO BE RESTORED TO

ITS FORMER STRENGTH.

MY DAUGHTER NEEDS TO BE

HEALED OF CANCER.

PRAY MY MIND WOULD BE AT

PEACE.

AND I WILL STOP WORRYING.

WORRYING IS SIN, HONEY.

LET'S JUST CALL IT WHAT IT

IS.

Kristi: THERE IS

ANOTHER PERSON PRAYING FOR

FULL MOVEMENT TO BE RESTORED

TO BOTH SHOULDERS.

AND ANOTHER PERSON IS

PRAYING FOR SHORT-GUT

SYNDROME.

Pat: WE HAVE IN FRONT

OF US -- YOU CAN SEE ALL OF

THOSE.

THEY'RE STARTING TO PILE

UP.

THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SAYING

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

AMERICA, AND THEY'RE ALSO

ASKING FOR PRAYER.

THAT WILL GO UP TO 80,000

AND 200,000.

WE'RE JOINING TOGETHER AND

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU.

LORD, YOU SAVED EVERY SINGLE

IN HABITANT OF THAT

APARTMENT COMPLEX FROM A

FIERY DEATH.

IT IS A MIRACLE OF GOD.

IN ANSWER TO A HUMBLE

CARETAKER WHO DAY BY DAY BY

DAY PRAYED FOR THE PEOPLE

WHO LIVED IN HIS APARTMENT

COMPLEX.

YOU ANSWER PRAYER, LORD.

AND WE HUMBLY COME BEFORE

YOU AND PRAY FOR AMERICA,

AND WE PRAY FOR EACH OTHER.

WE PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE

SICK.

WE PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN

FINANCIAL DIFFICULT.

WE PRAY FOR YOUR PEOPLE

ACROSS THIS NATION IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

BE TOUCHED BY GOD.

KRISTI?

Kristi: SOMEONE -- IN

FACT, YOU'RE EVEN SLIGHTLY

EMBARRASSED, BUT SOMEONE HAD

COSMETIC SURGERY AND IT WAS

BOTCHED.

THERE WERE COMPLICATIONS AND

THE LORD IS HEALING FROM YOU

THAT.

Pat: A PERSON WITH A

GOITER, IT IS SHRINKING

RIGHT NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

Kristi: THERE IS

ANOTHER PERSON, EVERY TIME

YOU INHALE, IT FEELS AS

THOUGH YOU'RE LUNGS ARE

INFLAMED.

THE LORD IS HEALING THAT

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Pat: AND THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE BEEN

COUGHING AND COUGHING AND

COUGHING, AND THE LORD HAS

JUST HEALED YOU.

LIKE A COOL AIR IS COMING

INTO YOUR LUNGS.

BLESS NOW THE PEOPLE, LORD,

AND BLESS THIS LAND, THAT WE

MIGHT SERVE YOU AND DO YOUR

WILL IN JESUS' NAME.

OKAY.

Kristi: CONTINUE TO

SEND IN YOUR PRAYER

REQUESTS.

STILL TO COME, WE'RE GOING

TO BE ANSWERING YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

SO WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GO

AWAY.

Kristi: THE COUNTDOWN

IS ON.

WE'RE GOING TO BEGIN WITH

CARLA WHO WRITES THIS, "MY

HUSBAND AND I HAVE A

QUESTION REGARDING IDOLS.

HE IS CONCERNED THAT EVEN

HAVE A CRUCIFIX COULD BE A

SIN.

I FEEL THAT YOU NEED TO

WORSHIP THE CRUCIFIX FOR IT

TO BE A SIN.

WE AREN'T SURE WHICH IS

RIGHT."

WHAT DO YOU THINK, PAT?

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

DON'T BE RIGHTEOUS OVER

MUCH.

I THINK YOU CAN GET CARRIED

AWAY WITH SUCH.

I DON'T THINK A CRUCIFIX IS

AN IDOL.

AN IDOL IS A REPRESENTATION

OF SOME BIRD, SNAKE, ANIMAL,

PERSON THAT YOU INVEST WITH

SUPERNATURAL POWERS, AND YOU

FALL DOWN AND ASK IT TO DO

STUFF.

I THINK STATUES OF SAINTS

FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY,

FRANKLY.

I THINK IDOL WORSHIP IS WHAT

IT SAYS.

YOU CAN MAKE AN IDOL OF

ANYTHING BY THE WAY.

YOU CAN WORSHIP SOMETHING

THAT IS NOT GOD.

GOD WANTS OUR WORSHIP.

HE DOESN'T WANT US

WORSHIPPING THE SUN OR THE

MOON OR ANGELIC HOSTS.

IT'S WORSHIP.

I THINK HAVING A CROSS IN

YOUR HOUSE, GOOD GRIEF, THAT

IS NOT IDOLATRY, BUT DON'T

GET CARRIED AWAY.

IF IT BECOMES LEGALISM, IT

WILL BIND YOU UP.

Kristi: READY FOR THE

NEXT ONE?

"I'M 15 YEARS OLD, AND I'VE

KNOWN ABOUT THE BIBLE AND

GOD SINCE I WAS VERY

LITTLE.

RECENTLY I WANTED TO RENEW

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD BY

READING THE BIBLE AND I'VE

TRIED FASTERING.

I REALLY WANT AN INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, BUT I

DON'T FEEL LIKE I HAVE THAT

REASSURANCE YET.

WHAT CAN I DO TO KNOW HE

LOVES ME AND ACCEPTS ME?"

Pat: READ 1 JOHN.

GOD IS LOVE.

THIS IS HOW HE SHOWS HIS

LOVE TO US.

GOD LOVES YOU MORE THAN

YOU'LL EVER KNOW.

OF COURSE HE ACCEPTS YOU.

BUT WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS

TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM.

AND IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING IN

YOUR HEART, IF YOU'RE MAD

WITH SOMEBODY, IF YOU HAVE

RESENTMENT IN YOUR

HEART, IF

THERE IS SOME SIN YOU

COMMITTED, CONFESS ALL OF

THAT TO HIM.

AND THEN MAKE SURE THAT YOU

HAVE INVITED JESUS TO COME

INTO YOUR HEART, AND HE IS

LIVING INSIDE OF YOU.

AND THEN THE HOLY SPIRIT

WILL BEAR WITNESS WITH YOUR

SPIRIT, THAT YOU'RE A CHILD

OF GOD.

HE WILL WITNESS TO YOU THAT

YOU'RE A CHILD OF GOD, AND

HE'LL TELL YOU THAT.

SO THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

BUT READ 1 JOHN.

Kristi: AND YOU'VE GOT

TO BELIEVE HIM.

THIS IS FROM CORINA, WHO

SAYS, "I HAVE WATCHED YOU

GUYS ALMOST EVERY MORNING.

I SEE ALL OF THE WONDERFUL

THINGS YOU DO AND IT

INSPIRES ME.

I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE LIKE

YOU DO, BUT I'M ONLY ONE

PERSON.

I'M ONLY 20 YEARS OLD.

HOW CAN SOMEONE LIKE ME MAKE

A BIG IMPACT ON THE NEEDS OF

THIS WORLD?"

Pat: THE FIRST THING

YOU CAN DO IS PRAY.

YOU CAN GIRDLE THE GLOBE

WITH YOUR PRAYERS.

YOU CAN TALK TO GOD, AND GOD

WILL HEAR AND ANSWER.

HE IS LOOKING LIKE YOU TO

PRAY.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, BE A

LIGHT, BE A WITNESS.

THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE,

LORD, LET IT SHINE.

YOU BE A LIGHT WHERE YOU

ARE, AND THEN THERE WILL BE

OTHER LIGHTS.

LIVE YOU'RE LIFE TO THE

GLORY OF GOD.

IF GOD HAS SOME SPECIFIC

WORK FOR YOU TO DO, HE'LL

SHOW YOU THAT.

Kristi: I WAS THINKING

ABOUT THAT, WHERE PEOPLE SAY

I WANT TO TOUCH THE NATION

FOR THE LORD.

BUT ARE YOU TOUCHING THE

PERSON NEXT DOOR TO YOU.

Pat: AND I MIGHT ADD

WE'RE TOUCHING THE NATION.

YOU'RE PARTICIPATION

FINANCIALLY, AND IN PRAYER

FOR US, AND "THE 700 CLUB"

AND OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS,

ALTHOUGH YOU CAN'T, MAYBE,

GO TO ALL OF THESE

COUNTRIES, WE CAN.

AND TOGETHER MIRACLES CAN

TAKE PLACE.

I THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THIS IS A SPECIAL TIME OF

PRAYER, LEADING UP TO THE

ELECTION.

WE'RE PRAYING DAY AFTER DAY

AFTER DAY FOR THIS NATION.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, WE'LL HEAR FROM A

FAMILY WHO WAS LOST AT SEA,

20 MILES OFF THE COAST.

AND WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM 1 THESSALONIANS:

"GIVE THANKS IN ALL

CIRCUMSTANCES, FOR THIS IS

GOD'S WILL FOR YOU IN CHRIST

JESUS."

REMEMBER OUR TELEPHONES ARE

AVAILABLE 24 HOURS A DAY.

YOU CAN CALL IN TOLL-FREE,

AND SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO

LOVES YOU AND CARES FOR

YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.

Kristi: GOOD SHOW.
