700 Club Canada: September 28, 2012

Watch the 700 Club Canada for September 28, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB CANADA.

YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES REALITY

DOESN'T MATCH OUR DREAMS AND WE

FIND OURSELVES KIND OF SAYING,

I'M A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED, LEFT

WITHOUT THAT KIND OF BURP AFTER

THE END OF THAT ROOT BEER

FLOAT, HAVE YOU EVER HAD ONE OF

THOSE?

THINK ABOUT IT.

A ROOT BEER FLOAT?

I USED TO LOVE THAT, WHEN I

WAS A KID, I USED TO PUT A BIG

GLASS WITH MY DAD AND SOME

ICE-CREAM ON THE TOP AND THEN

AFTER THAT, YOU HAD A NICE

BURP, IT ALWAYS LIVED UP TO --

HAVE YOU EVER HAD SOMETHING

THAT DID NOT LIVE UP TO YOUR

EXPECTATION?

I'M STILL STUCK ON THE

BURPING THING, I DO NOT TALK

ABOUT THAT ON AIR.

ALL YOUNG GUYS LIKE TO BURP.

YES, NOW TODAY, TRENT

SHELTON TALKS ABOUT HIS JOURNEY

TO THE NFL AND THE

DISAPPOINTMENT THAT FOLLOWED,

HE'LL SHARE HOW GOD GAVE HIM A

NEW GOAL FOR HIS LIFE THAT HAD

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH

FOOTBALL.

BUT FIRST WE SAIL TO THE

ISLE OF MALTA IN SEARCH OF THE

ANCIENT SHIPWRECK OF THE

APOSTLE PAUL.

IT WAS SOMETIME AROUND 60 AD

AND THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS IN

ROUTE TO ROME FROM THE ISLE OF

CRETE, ON THE JOURNEY, A FIERCE

STORM BLEW THE SHIP OFF COURSE.

ON THE 14TH NIGHT, WE WERE

STILL BEING DRIVEN ACROSS THE

ADRIATIC SEA, WHEN ABOUT

MIDNIGHT, THE SAILORS SENSED

THEY WERE APPROACHING LAND.

THEY TOOK SOUNDINGS AND

FOUND THE WATER WAS 120 FEET

DEEP.

A SHORT TIME LATER, THEY TOOK

SOUNDINGS AGAIN AND THEY FOUND

IT WAS 90 FEET DEEP, THEY

DROPPED FOUR ANCHORS IN THE

STERN AND PRAYED FOR DAYLIGHT.

WHEN DAYLIGHT CAME, THEY DID

NOT RECOGNIZE THE LAND, THEY

SAW A BAY WITH A SANDY BEACH

WHERE THEY DECIDED TO

RUN THE SHIP AGROUND IF THEY

COULD, CUTTING LOOSE THE

ANCHORS, THEY LEFT THEM AT SEA.

WITH THE STORM STILL RAGING,

THE SHIP STRUCK A SAND BAR AND

BEGAN TO BREAK APART, THE

NEARLY 300 MEN ON BOARD SWAM

FOR THEIR LIVES, MIRACULOUSLY,

EVERYONE SURVIVED.

ONCE SAFELY ON SHORE, WE

FOUND OUT THAT THE ISLAND WAS

CALLED MALTA.

AND SO BEGAN A CHRISTIAN

INFLUENCE IN MALTA THAT HAS

CONTINUED DOWN THROUGH THE

CENTURIES.

TODAY MALTA IS EUROPE'S MOST

RELIGIOUS NATION, 98% OF ITS

CITIZENS ARE CATHOLIC, ST. PAUL

IS MEMORIALIZED ACROSS THE

ISLAND, NO MORE THAN IN ST.

PAUL'S BAY WHERE TOURISTS COME

TO VISIT THE SHIPWRECKED CATHEDL

AND SEE THE SPOT WHERE MOST

BELIEVE PAUL'S SHIP RAN AGROUND

NEARLY 2000 YEARS AGO.

BUT WHEN A FORMER LOS ANGELES

CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATOR PAID A

VISIT TO MALTA, FACTS IN THE

BIBLICAL NARRATIVE DIDN'T FIT

WITH THE VIEW FROM ST. PAUL'S

BAY, THAT DIFFERENCE LED TO A TN

YEAR SEARCH FOR THE TRUE LOCATIN

OF PAUL'S SHIPWRECK, BOB STARTED

IN THE PAGES OF HIS BIBLE, THE

CRUX OF THE STORY

REVOLVED AROUND THE FOUR

ANCHORS.

COULD THEY BE FOUND?

I LOOKED A THE BIBLE AND

SAID, COULD I SOLVE THIS, LIKE

IT WAS A CRIME, COULD I TAKE

THE EVIDENCE THAT EXISTS ON THE

PAGES OF THE BIBLE AND FIND

THESE LOST ANCHORS THAT THE

BIBLE TALKS ABOUT?

ACTS 27 AND 28 GIVES A VERY

DETAILED ACCOUNT, SO BOB LISTED

FOUR FACTORS THAT WOULD HAVE TO

MATCH UP IN ORDER TO FIND THE

TRUE LOCATION.

A BAY WITH A BEACH, A REEF WITH

A SAND BAR WHERE TWO SEAS MEET,

THE SEABED AT ABOUT 90 FEET OF

DEPTH AND A PLACE THE SAILORS

WOULD NOT HAVE RECOGNIZED.

CORNUKE ENLISTED THE HELP OF A

GROUP OF MEN WHO KNEW THE WATERS

AROUND MALTA BEST, THE MALTESE

FISHERMEN.

I STARTED MY SEARCH BY GOING

OUT WITH THESE FISHERMEN THAT

KNEW THE WEATHER, THE CURRENTS,

THE TOPOGRAPHY OF THE OCEAN,

THEY TOOK ME OUT WITH THEM AND

THEY EXPLAINED TO ME ALL THE

POSSIBLE PLACES BASED ON WHAT TE

BIBLE NARRATIVE SAYS TO WHERE

THE SHIPWRECK OF PAUL COULD HAVE

BEEN.

MOST OF MALTA IS SURROUNDED Y

CLIFFS, SO BOB QUICKLY NARROWED

DOWN THE POSSIBILITIES TO A FEW

BAYS WITH BEACHES TO FIGURE OUT

WHICH SITE WAS MOST PLAUSIBLE,

CORNUKE LOOKED TO DR. GRAHAM

HUT, AN EXPERT ON

MEDITERRANEAN STORMS.

I'VE BEEN STUDYING THE

STORMS AND WEATHER PATTERNS OF

THE MEDITERRANEAN OVER THE PAST

30 YEARS AND IT RESULTED IN A

BOOK ON NORTH AFRICA AND

MALTA WHICH COVERS ALL THESE

ISSUES WITH THE WEATHER.

DR. HUT'S EXPERTISE HELPED ME

SENSE OF THE CLUES IN ACTS.

THEY WERE REALLY SCARED OF

GETTING DRAGGED DOWN ON THE

LIBYAN COAST, THEY WOULD HAVE

BEEN TRYING AS MUCH AS THEY COUD

TO HEAD IN A NORTHERLY

DIRECTION BUT ONLY ACTUALLY

MAKING NORTHWESTERLY.

THE ONLY BAY IN THAT AREA

THAT FITS THE DIRECTION OF

DRIFT BOB CALCULATED IS CALLED

THE BAY OF ST. THOMAS.

IN MY OPINION, BEARING IN

MIND WHERE THEY MOST PROBABLY

WOULD HAVE BEEN, ST. THOMAS' BAY

IS A MUCH MORE LIKELY PLACE.

WE'RE JUST COMING INTO ST.

THOMAS BAY ON THE SOUTHEASTERN

SIDE OF MALTA AND THE THEORY

GOES THAT THIS WAS THE BAY THAT

WAS WRITTEN ABOUT IN ACTS 27

AND 28, PART OF THE BIBLICAL

ACCOUNT SAYS THAT THE SAILORS

DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE ISLAND AND

DIDN'T KNOW WHERE THEY WERE UNTL

THE VILLAGERS TOLD THEM THAT THS

WAS MALTA.

THAT IS ANOTHER SUPPORT FOR THE

THEORY THAT THIS WAS THE BAY THT

THEY LANDED IN BECAUSE IF THE

SAILORS HAD LANDED ON THE NORTH

SIDE OF THE

ISLAND, THERE WERE MANY PORTS

THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN

FAMILIAR WITH.

ONE DAY, BOB MADE AN

ELECTRIFYING DISCOVERY, IT

CAME BY WAY OF AN OLD DIVER

WITH AN INCREDIBLE STORY.

I MET A MAN NAMED RAY CHANCH,

HE SAID, HEY BOB, IN THE LATE 6,

EARLY 70S, WE DUG UP FOUR ANCHOS

FROM THE OCEAN BOTTOM AT ABOUT

90 FEET DEPTH.

THE LOCATION, JUST OUTSIDE

ST. THOMAS BAY NEAR A DANGEROUS

SAND BAR CALLED THE MOON CHAR

REEF, THE ANCHORS WERE

LATER DONATED TO THE NATIONAL

MARITIME MUSEUM, AN EXPERT

ANALYSIS CONFIRMED THAT THEY WEE

FROM THE ROMAN ERA BUT THE

DIVERS HAD NO IDEA WHAT THEY

HAD AT THE TIME.

WHEN WE FOUND THE ANCHORS AT

THE END OF THE 60S, BEGINNING

OF THE 70S, I DON'T REMEMBER

THE EXACT YEAR, AS I SAY, IT

WAS OF NO IMPORTANCE TO ME

WHATSOEVER WHEN WE FOUND THEM,

IT WAS YIPPEE, WE FOUND A PIECE

OF LEAD.

RAY AGREED TO SHOW US WHERE

THE ANCHORS WERE FOUND.

WE'RE COMING UP TO THE AREA,

WE'RE GOING TO DIVE DOWN AND

SEE IF WE CAN FIND THE SITE

WHERE THE ANCHORS WERE BROUGHT

UP.

WHEN I LOOKED AT THE

LOCATION WHERE THEY FOUND THESE

ANCHORS, I LOOKED AT THE SHORE

LINE AND IT FIT WITH WHAT THE

BIBLE SAID, THERE WAS A BAY

WITH A BEACH, THERE WAS A REEF

WHERE TWO SEAS COME TOGETHER.

TODAY THE SEA FLOOR AGAIN IS

TRANQUIL AND CALM GIVING NO

CLUES TO THE SECRETS, IT'S

IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW FOR SURE IF

THIS IS WHERE PAUL'S SHIPWRECK

OCCURRED BUT MANY MALTESE

ARE INTRIGUED BY THE THEORY.

JOAN AVARO IS ANOTHER ONE OF THE

DIVERS WHO HELPED

RETRIEVE THE ANCHORS.

I MYSELF AM CONVINCED THAT

IT IS MORE PLAUSIBLE THAT THE

SHIPWRECK WAS ON MOON CHAR,

NOT ON ST. PAUL'S ISLAND.

WE HAVE BELIEVED ST. PAUL'S

ISLAND BUT NOBODY SORT OF

QUESTIONED, BUT ARE YOU SURE.

WE LOOKED DOWN AT THIS

GLISTENING ANCHOR AND I

REMEMBER KNEELING DOWN AND

PUTTING MY HAND ON THAT COLD

OBJECT AND THINKING THAT I

COULD BE NOW TOUCHING HISTORY,

FOR TWO THOUSAND YEARS, IT

BELONGED TO THE SEA AND NOW I

WAS ACTUALLY TOUCHING THIS

OBJECT THAT COULD COME TO US

FROM THE PAGES OF THE BIBLE.

TODAY, THE ANCHORS ARE

TUCKED AWAY IN A CORNER OF

VALETEZ MARITIME MUSEUM,

MOST VISITORS PASS THEM BY

HAVING NO IDEA WHAT HISTORY

THEY MIGHT HOLD.

CHUCK HOLTON, CBN NEWS ON

THE MEDITERRANEAN ISLE OF MALTA.

THE THING I LOVE ABOUT THAT,

IT'S AMAZING HOW EVEN, YOU

LOOK AT THE BIBLE AND GO TO

THESE PLACES, MANY PEOPLE WERE

LOOKING IN ONE PARTICULAR AREA

BUT IT WAS A RANDOM FISHING

EXPEDITION THAT FOUND NOT ONLY

AN ANTIQUITY BUT SOMETHING THAT

PROVES EXACTLY WHAT TOOK PLACE,

AND IN THAT MOMENT, WHEN THE

APOSTLE PAUL HEARD FROM THE

ANGEL AND THE ANGEL TOLD HIM

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DIE, IT'S

AMAZING, THAT'S A WITNESS OF

THAT THAT IS BROUGHT BACK UP.

IT SURE IS, WHAT AN AMAZING

LIFE HE LIVED AND TO THINK THAT

NATURAL FINDINGS ARE PROVING

THAT THESE STORIES REALLY DID

TAKE PLACE, AND OF COURSE

THEY'RE HISTORICAL.

THREE QUARTERS OF THE BIBLE

WERE WRITTEN BY HIM.

HE WAS BEATEN MANY TIMES.

THAT'S NOT MY FAVORITE

THOUGH.

WELL, UP NEXT, TRENT SHELTONS

NFL DREAM BECOMES A NIGHTMARE.

I WAS A MAN IN HIGH SCHOOL.

COLLEGE, I HAD ALL THESE

ACCOLADES, ALL THESE RECORDS,

AT THAT TIME, GOD WAS SECONDARY

IN MY LIFE, I WAS MORE THAN THE

DRIVER'S SEAT IN MY LIFE, GOD

WAS IN THE BACKSEAT, I LOOKED

BACK AT HIM WHEN I NEEDED HIM.

FOOTBALL AT THAT TIME WAS MY

IDLE BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I WAS

TIED TO, THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE KNEW

ME AS, TRENT SHELTON, THE

FOOTBALL PLAYER, WHEN YOU'RE IN

THE NFL AND EXPECTED TO BE

DRAFTED AND YOU'RE SITTING

THERE WATCHING THE TV AND YOUR

NAME ISN'T CALLED, IT TAKES

AWAY YOUR CONFIDENCE AND AT

THAT TIME, I BECAME ANGRY AT

GOD.

WHEN YOU ARE A FREE AGENT, YOU'E

AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TOTEM

POLE, I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

HANDLE IT, SO I DECIDED TO TURN

THE THINGS THAT I THOUGHT WOULD

FILL THAT VOID INTO THE WORLD

WHICH A LOT OF PEOPLE DO, I

TURNED TO ALCOHOL, I TURNED TO

A COUPLE OF DRUGS, TO SEX, TO

PARTYING, I TURNED TO ALL THESE

THINGS THAT GAVE ME TEMPORARY

FULFILLMENT, I WOULD JUST FEEL

EMPTY AGAIN AND AGAIN AND

AGAIN, WHEN I GOT TO THE NFL,

THE FIRST THING I DID WAS I GOT

AN AVALANCHE TRUCK WHEN I WAS

26, I SPENT 8 THOUSAND DOLLARS

ON IT, I SPENT THE JEWELRY, I

WAS TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE

JONES', BUT HURTING INSIDE,

BEHIND THE SCENES, I WAS DYING

INSIDE.

I WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TOTEM

POLE, MY PRESEASON WAS

GOOD, IT WAS LIKE, YEAH, I'M

INDOOR, THEY STILL PUT ME ON

PRACTICE SQUAD, TWO WEEKS

LATER, THEY CUT ME, I HAD TO

DRIVE ALL THE WAY FROM INDY

TO TEXAS, AS SOON AS I GOT

HERE, THEY CALLED ME BACK, I

STARTED TO DOUBT GOD AGAIN, I

STARTED TO BECOME ANGRY AND

SHELTERED.

I WAS DOING REALLY GOOD ON THE

PRACTICE SQUAD, REALLY GOOD, IT

WAS A SUNDAY NIGHT GAME PLAYING

AGAINST THE SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

AND HE SAID, TRENT, YOU HAVE TO

BE READY, HE SAID, YOU'RE GOING

TO PLAY, AT THAT TIME, MY KNEE

COULDN'T HAVE FLARED UP AT THE

WRONG TIME, IT WAS REAL BAD

TENDONITIS, I HAD TO POP PAIN

KILLERS, IBUPROFEN, A BIG KNEE

BRACE, THEY WERE CALLING ME AN

OLD MAN, I WAS 21 YEARS, OLD,

THAT WAS MY OPPORTUNITY, HE WAS

LIKE, TRENT, I WANT YOU TO GO

BUT YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE YOU'RE

READY AND I FELT LIKE THAT WAS

THE MOMENT WHERE MY LIFE

STARTED SPIRALING DOWNHILL.

AND I GOT A CALL, THEY GIVE YOU

NO EXPLANATION, THEY DON'T HAVE

TO, IT'S LIKE, HEY, WE'RE GOING

TO RELEASE YOU, SEATTLE CALLS

ME, SEATTLE WAS EVEN WORSE

HONESTLY BECAUSE I CAME IN

LATE, THEY HAD THEIR GUYS UP

THERE, WHEN I GOT UP THERE, I

PERFORMED WELL BUT THE SAME

THING, THEY RELEASED ME AFTER

PRESEASON, THEY BROUGHT ME BACK

AND PRACTICE SQUADED ME, IT WAS

TO THE POINT WHERE THEY TOLD ME

THEY WERE BRINGING ME BACK, I

DROVE TO THE AIRPORT AND THEY

SAID, WE CHANGED OUR MIND, AND

I WAS LIKE, I DON'T LOVE THIS

ANYMORE, WHY AM I DOING IT,

SEATTLE WAS ROUGH BUT THAT'S

THE TIME WHERE MY SON WAS BORN

THAT SEPTEMBER, IT REALLY

CHANGED MY LIFE.

IT WAS OUT OF, YOU KNOW,

[INAUDIBLE] THE SITUATION, I

WAS THINKING ALL THE WRONG

THINGS BUT THEN I WOKE UP AND I

WAS LIKE, THIS IS MY SON AND

I'M GOING TO BE THERE FOR MY

SON, HE WAS BORN ON SEPTEMBER

25, IT WAS LIKE A LITTLE ME, HE

LOOKED AT ME WITH HIS EYES AND

HE IMMEDIATELY STOPPED CRYING,

AND I SAID, DO I WANT HIM TO

FOLLOW IN MY FOOTSTEPS, YOU

HAVE TO TELL YOURSELF, YOU

DON'T WANT SOMEBODY TO FOLLOW

IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS, THAT SHOWS

YOU YOU'RE LEADING THE WRONG

PATH AND I WANTED TO CHANGE

IMMEDIATELY.

I GOT AN OPPORTUNITY WITH THE

WASHINGTON RED SKINS, PERFORMED

THERE, RAN THE FASTEST TIME IN

MY LIFE, THEY WERE LOOKING AT

THE CLOCK AND THEY SIGNED ME

AND SAME STORY, PRACTICE SQUAD,

DID GOOD IN THE PRESEASON BUT I

GOT CUT HALF WAY THROUGH THE

SEASON, I KNEW WHAT MY PURPOSE

WAS AT THAT TIME IN MY LIFE, I

UNDERSTOOD THE PLATFORM WITH

THE NFL, IT WASN'T TO BECOME A

SUPERSTAR ATHLETE, IT WAS TO

GIVE ME A PLATFORM FOR GOD, I

REALLY DON'T MISS IT TOO MUCH.

TRENT NOW IS A PERSON THAT

LIVES FOR JESUS CHRIST, I

ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE, IT'S MY

GOAL TO MAKE JESUS CHRIST'S

NAME MORE FAMOUS EACH DAY.

I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND HE'S

GOING TO TAKE YOU PLACES THAT

YOU MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND JUST

TO BRING YOU TO THE PLACE WHERE

HE WANTS YOU TO BE, AND AFTER A,

HE'S NEVER GOING TO LEAVE YOU

DESPITE ALL THE SINS YOU

COMMIT, DESPITE ALL THE THINGS

THAT YOU DO, HE ALWAYS HAS YOUR

BACK, SO DON'T GET DISCOURAGED

WHERE YOU ARE BECAUSE OUR

ULTIMATE GOAL IS ETERNAL LIFE.

YOU KNOW, I LOVE THIS

BECAUSE BEING A NON-CURRENT

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE, I

REMEMBER SO MANY TIMES GOING TO

CHAPELS AND HAVING LET DOWNS AS

WELL, ONE OF THE THINGS I

REMEMBER AND I'VE SEEN THIS SO

MANY TIMES, THAT MANY ATHLETES

ARE SUPERSTITIOUS AND NOT

CHRISTIAN BECAUSE WHAT THEY DO

IS THEY SAY, WELL, IF I WEAR

THIS SOCK AND I WEAR THESE

UNDERWEAR AND I CAN DO THIS,

I'LL GET THAT.

THAT'S IDOLATRY, THAT IS

ANYTHING THAT ROBS INTIMACY

FROM GOD, BUT WHAT I FOUND OUT

DURING MY TIME AND ONE OF THE

FAVORITE BOOKS THAT I HAD WAS

THE HALF BROTHER OF JESUS

[INAUDIBLE] HIMSELF, JAMES THE

APOSTLE, AND IT SAYS THAT

BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO ENDURES

TRIALS OF MANY KIND,

TEMPTATIONS FOR WHEN HE HAS

BEEN PROVED, HE WILL RECEIVE

THE CROWN OF LIFE WHICH THE

LORD HAS PROMISED TO THOSE WHO

LOVE HIM.

YOU KNOW, RINGS AND THE BLING,

THOSE GO AWAY, BUT THIS CROWN

IS WAITING FOR EVERYONE WHO

WILL GET NOT ONLY A TENACITY

TO HOLD ON TO JESUS AND HOLD ON

TO THEIR CONFESSION BUT NOT

SELL BECAUSE THEY'RE

DISAPPOINTED.

I BELIEVE MANY TIMES WHEN GOD

MOVES IN OUR LIFE AND THE RUG

IS PULLED OUT AND IT HAPPENED

TOO MANY TIMES, IT'S TO SEE

WHERE OUR TRUST IS BECAUSE WE

KNOW WHO WE ARE WHEN WE'RE IN

THE DARK.

YOU KNOW, BRIAN, IT'S ALL

ABOUT IDENTITY, ISN'T IT.

NOT MANY OF US WERE

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES LIKE YOU

WERE, BUT WE ALL HAVE OUR

IDENTITY IN SOMETHING, AND WHEN

THAT GETTING PULLED OUT

UNDERNEATH YOU, YOU NEED A

ROCK, YOU NEED TO HAVE

SOMETHING SOLID THAT YOU CAN

JUST FALL ON TO AND YOU CAN BE

FIRM AND STAND THERE STILL, YOU

KNOW, AND HAVE YOUR FOUNDATION

BUILT ON SOMETHING SOLID.

I KNOW FOR ME WHEN THINGS HAVE

NOT GONE AS I HOPED AND DROOPED

AS -- DREAMED AS THEY WOULD,

I'M LIKE, WHAT'S MY PURPOSE AND

WHY AM I HERE, WE'RE HERE FOR A

GREAT PURPOSE AND THAT'S WHY

BRIAN AND I ARE HERE EVERY DAY,

SO WE CAN SHOW YOU AND INSPIRE

YOU TO BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN

BE IN GOD BECAUSE HE IS CALLING

OUT YOUR NAME.

ONE OF THE GREATEST CHAPELS

I WENT TO IS WHEN I HEARD HIS

MAN, HE SAID, I STOPPED TRYING

TO BE THE BEST HUSBAND, THE

BEST BUSINESSMAN AND I STOPPED

TRYING AND I STARTED TRUSTING

AND THE WEIGHT CAME OFF, SAME

THING HAPPENED TO ME, I WONDER

IF YOU'RE READY TO DO THAT AS

WELL, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

SAY, GOD, I'M TIRED, I GET IT,

I SURRENDER, I CONFESS MY SIN,

JESUS, MAKE ME WHAT YOU WANT ME

TO BE, AMEN.

AMEN.

DADDY?

YEAH, BUDDY?

HOW MANY NICKELS ARE IN A

DOLLAR?

THERE ARE 20 NICKELS IN A

DOLLAR.

LOOK, HOW DO BIRDS FLY?

DOES MILK REALLY MAKE MY BONES

STRONGER?

YEAH, 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.

I LOVE THAT SONG, IT IS WELL

WITH MY SOUL WHEN PEACE LIKE A

RIVER ATTENDS MY WAY, WHEN

SORROW LIKE SEA BILLOWS BLOW,

WHEREVER MY LOT, THOU HAS

TAUGHT ME TO SAY IT AS WELL

WITH MY SOUL, EASIER SAID THAN

DONE.

I LOVE THIS STORY BEHIND HOW

THIS BEAUTIFUL HYMN WAS PENT,

THE AUTHOR WAS HORATIO

STAFFORD, HE HAD IT ALL IN THE

1800S, HE WAS A WEALTHY CHICAGO

LAWYER WITH A BEAUTIFUL WIFE A

FOUR YEAR-OLD SON, HE HAD FOUR

WONDERFUL DAUGHTERS AND A

LOVELY HOME, HE WAS A STRONG

MAN OF FAITH AND HE HUNG OUT

WITH THE LIKES OF DALE MOODY

AND HE LOVED TO STUDY THE

SCRIPTURES, WITHIN A SHORT SPAN

OF TIME, HIS YOUNG SON DIED

SUDDENLY AND THE CHICAGO FIRES

HAD DECIMATED HIS FINANCIAL

PORTFOLIO, HE WAS FLAT BROKE,

HE SENT HIS WIFE AND HIS

DAUGHTERS OFF ON A SHIP TO

EUROPE SO THEY COULD GRIEVE

OVER THE LOSSES AND TO FIND

SOME REST, BUT THEIR VESSEL, IT

WAS HIT BY ANOTHER SHIP AND IT

SANK KILLING ALL FOUR OF HIS

DAUGHTERS, HIS WIFE LATER SENT

HIM A NOW FAMOUS TELEGRAPH, IT

SAID SENT ALONE, SEVERAL DAYS

LATER, STAFFORD IN HIS

PERSONAL STORM IN HIS LIFE, HE

WROTE THE TIME TREASURED WORD

OF THIS HYMN, THOUGH SATAN

SHOULD BUFFET, THOUGH TRIALS

SHOULD COME, LET THIS ASSURE

THAT CHRIST HAS RECORDED MY

HELPLESS ESTATE AND HAS SHED

HIS OWN BLOOD FOR MY SOUL.

THAT WAS A MAN, HE WAS TRULY AT

PEACE AT TRUSTING JESUS WITH

HIS HELPLESS POWERLESS POSITION.

LATER HIS WIFE AND HE HAD THREE

CHILDREN, TWO IRS AND A BOY,

THAT SON ALSO DIED IN INFANCY.

IT'S NO WONDER THAT HE WROTE

WHEN SORROWS LIKE SEA BILLOWS

ROLE WHATEVER MY LOT HAS TAUGHT

ME TO SING, IT IS WELL, IT IS

WELL WITH MY SOUL.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE

TODAY OR WHAT STORM YOU ARE

FACING, THIS YEAR HAS BEEN A

REALLY TOUGH YEAR FOR SOME

FRIENDS OF MINE, ONE WOMAN, SHE

LOST HER HUSBAND VERY QUICKLY

TO CANCER AND ANOTHER COUPLE

LOST THEIR BEAUTIFUL 15

YEAR-OLD SON OVERNIGHT TO

MENINGITIS, I HAVE SEEN FAITH

THAT HAS INSPIRED THEIR SOUL

LIVED OUT THROUGH THEIR

STRUGGLE AND PERSONALLY I DON'T

KNOW HOW I WOULD HANDLE SUCH

UNIMAGINABLE PAIN, I WOULD PRAY

THAT GOD WOULD FIND ME ON MY

KNEES IN SURRENDER TO HIS

PRAYER, I PRAY PSALMS 31:5, IN

MY HANDS, I COMMIT MY SPIRIT,

DELIVER ME OH LORD, MY FAITHFUL

GOD, THOUGH YOU SLAY ME, YET

WILL I TRUST YOU, GOD LOVES YOU

AND HE IS A GOOD GOD NO MATTER

WHAT HORRENDOUS CIRCUMSTANCES

YOU MAY BE FACING, IF YOU WOULD

RELINQUISH EVERY EMOTION AND

FEELING TO HIM, HE WILL CARRY

YOU ABSOLUTELY FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

YOU MAY HAVE CRIED AND

CONTINUED TO CRY AND YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU HAVE NO MORE TEARS BUT

I WANT TO REMIND YOU THAT GOD

IN THESE MOMENTS IS STILL THE

SAME, YESTERDAY, TODAY AND

FOREVER.

I BELIEVE HORATIO STAFFORD

JUST LIKE JOE, 19:25, I KNOW

MY REDEEMER LIVES AND I WILL

SEE HIM IN THE FLESH AND SO

WILL YOU, CALL THE NUMBER ON
