YOU KNOW THERE IS

SOMETHING THERE.

Lee: LIKE FATHER --

MY FATHER'S SIDE CAME

FROM A FAMILY OF WITCHES AND

WARLOCKS.

Lee: LIKE SON.

I WAS COMMITTED TO THE

DEMON.

I WAS COMMITTED TO THE

DEVIL.

THE DEVIL SAID TO ME, I'LL

GIVE YOU ANYTHING YOU WANT,

JUST ASK.

Lee: AND HIS SOLEMN

VOW?

I WILL WORSHIP HIM UNTIL

THE DAY I DIE.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IRISH.

Pat: DAW IS YOUR

Kristi: IT IS.

WHERE IS MY BIRTHDAY SONG.

Pat: I DON'T SING, BUT

HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

YOU MADE 29.

Kristi: I DID.

29.

Pat: HAPPY TO YOU,

KRISTI.

AMERICANS IN THE NORTHEAST,

ARE NOT EXACTLY REJOICING,

BUT THEY'RE BEGINNING TO

CLEANUP AFTER A SERIOUS

ONSLAUGHT BY SUPERSANDY.

IT LEFT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

WITHOUT POWER IN AT LEAST 18

STATES, AND AT LEAST 50

PEOPLE ARE DEAD.

Kristi: SANDY IS

EXPECTED TO COST $50 BILLION

OR MORE.

WE HAVE A REPORT FROM CBN

NEWS ON THE STORM AND ITS

AFTERMATH.

Reporter: CLEANUP

BEGINS IN ERNEST TODAY

ACROSS MUCH OF THE

NORTHEAST.

NEW YORK CITY IS SLOWLY

COMING BACK TO LIFE.

MASS TRANSIT REMAINS DOWN AS

CREWS DRAIN WATERS FROM THE

TUNNELS AND THE SUBWAY.

LAQUARDIA AIRPORT REMAINS

CLOSED, DUE TO SEVERE

FLOODING.

MUCH OF THE TARMAC STILL

COMPLETELY UNDER WATER.

THERE IS AN IMPACT ON

EVERY OTHER AIRPORT BECAUSE

SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO

FLY TO AND FROM THE EAST

COAST, AND NEW YORK CITY

SPECIFICALLY.

Reporter: THE NEW YORK

STOCK EXCHANGE IS OPEN TODAY

AFTER BEING CLOSED TWO DAYS

BECAUSE OF WEATHER.

WITH THE ELECTRICITY OUT, A

NEW CONCERN FOR THE CITY,

LOOTING.

REPORTS ARE COMING IN FROM

THE BRONX TO BROOKLYN, EVEN

CONEY ISLAND, OF PEOPLE

TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE

DAMAGE TO THE CITY.

CBN NEWS TALK TO THE

PRESIDENT OF THE BENEVOLENT

ASSOCIATION.

THE BAD GUYS WILL TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF ANY

CIRCUMSTANCE.

WILL IS SUCH A THING AS

RIGHT AND WRONG, AND THERE

IS SUCH A THING AS GOOD AND

EVIL.

AND THE EVIL WILL COME OUT

WHEN THE BE ELECTRICITY GOES

OUT.

Reporter: GOVERNOR

CHRIS CHRISTIE SAYS THE

DAMAGE IS MORE THAN HE EVER

IMAGINED.

WE'LL REBUILD IT, NO

QUESTION IN MY MIND, WE'LL

REBUILD IT.

BUT FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE

MY AGE, IT WON'T BE THE

SAME.

Reporter: CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PREPARING FOR WORK IN THOM'S

RIVER.

THEY WILL BE GOING OUT

DOING AN A DAMAGE ASSESSMENT

AND TALKING TO RESIDENTS.

AND IN OUR CONVOY, WE HAVE

CONSTRUCTION TRAILERS, AND

WE CAN FEED 2,000 HOT MEALS

A DAY.

NOT ONLY ARE WE PREPARED FOR

HURRICANE DAMAGE, BUT THIS

IS A WINTER STORM AS WELL.

Reporter: FURTHER

INLAND, SANDY IS BRINGING

BLIZZARD-LIKE CONDITIONS.

EIGHT STATES ARE GETTING

HEAVY SNOW, WITH THE

HEAVIEST SO FAR IN WEST

VIRGINIA.

WE'RE TRYING TO KEEP

INSIDE, AND WE GO OUT AND

GET KEROSENE IF WE NEED IT,

AND HOPE WE DON'T HAVE TO

WAIT SO LONG WITHOUT POWER.

Reporter: IN THE

HIGHEST ELEVATIONS, MORE

THAN THREE FEET IS POSSIBLE

BY THURSDAY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THIS IS

CHARLENE ISRAEL.

NEW YORKERS ARE PICKING UP

THE PIECES AFTER HURRICANE

SANDY LEFT THOUSANDS IN THE

DARK WITHOUT POWER.

THE STORM DEALT IS BIG BLOW

TO THE CITY'S ENTIRE

TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM,

HALTING ITS TRAIN AND SUBWAY

SYSTEMS.

HERE AT HIS SUBWAY STATION

IN BATTERY PARK, IT IS

COMPLETELY FLOODED.

FLOODWATERS CAME UP ABOUT

TWO FEET.

TRANSIT WORKS WENT DOWN TO

SURVEY THE DAMAGE, AND THEY

SAY THE FLOODING IS THE

WORST THEY'VE EVER SEEN.

SOME 80 HOMES WERE DESTROYED

IN A FLOODED QUEENS

NEIGHBORHOOD.

LOW-LYING AREAS HAVE BEEN

SWAMPED FROM SANDY'S MASSIVE

STORM SURGE.

INSIDE THIS APARTMENT

BUILDING IN LOWER MANHATTAN,

YOU CAN SEE THE FLOODWATERS

ARE STILL HERE.

IT ACTUALLY HAS GOTTEN UP TO

10 FEET, AS YOU CAN SEE ON

THIS WALL.

RESIDENTS THEY HAVE NEVER

SEEN ANYTHING AS BAD AS

THIS.

I EXPERIENCED THE WATER

UP TO MY SIDE.

YOUR SIDE?

YEAH.

Reporter: THAT'S PRETTY

HIGH.

THERE IS ALL OF THAT

WATER, AND IT TACK ABOUT

HALF AN HOUR.

Reporter: THIS WOMAN

WITNESSED THE EXPLOSION OF

HER TRANSFORMER IN HER LOWER

MANHATTAN COMMUNITY.

SHE REGRETS NOT HEEDING

ORDERS TO LEAVE.

I AM TRAUMATIZED.

I DID NOT EXPECT SANDY TO BE

LIKE THIS.

I THOUGHT IT WASN'T GOING TO

BE THAT SERIOUS.

NEXT TIME THEY SAY EVACUATE,

I'M EVACUATING.

Reporter: WORKERS WILL

STAY ON THE JOB THROUGH THE

NIGHT, RESTORING THE CITY

THAT NEVER SLEEPS, TO ITS

FORMER BU BUSYNESS.

Pat: THANKS, CHARLENE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

LIVED IN MANHATTAN, I'VE

LIVED IN QUEENS, I'VE LIVED

IN BROOKLYN, AND I WORKED ON

THE EDGE OF THE BRONX.

I'M FAMILIAR WITH WHAT GOES

ON IN NEW YORK CITY.

I WANT TO SAY THIS, THE NEW

YORKERS IN THE TIME OF

EMERGENCY, THEY ARE VERY

COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE.

THEY PULL TOGETHER FOR THEIR

CITY, AND THEY PULL TOGETHER

FOR THOSE LESS FORTUNATE.

I COMMEND THE FIREFIGHTERS,

THE EMERGENCY WORKERS.

THEY WORK LIKE CRAZY TO KEEP

IN ORDER, AND THEY'RE GOOD

FOLKS.

I THINK WE SHOULD PRAY AGAIN

FOR PEOPLE IN THAT AREA.

DOWN HERE WE HAD SOME WIND,

A FEW TREES DOWN, AND SOME

FLOODING, BUT NOTHING OF

WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN NEW

JERSEY AND NEW YORK.

KRISTI, WE WANT TO PRAY

RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, WE JOIN TOGETHER AND

PRAY FOR THESE PEOPLE IN THE

NORTHEAST WHO ARE SUFFERING,

THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE POWER,

THOSE WHO ARE IN COLD, THOSE

WHO HAVE SEEN THEIR

POSSESSIONS LOST THROUGH

FLOODING.

WE ASK, LORD, THAT YOU MIGHT

STAND WITH THEM.

GIVE THEM COMFORT AND HOPE

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

BLESSING, IN YOUR HOLY

NAME.

AMEN.

Kristi: AMEN.

Pat: IT IS MAYBE ONCE

IN A THOUSAND YEARS --

THEY'RE NOT SURE.

WE'RE IN HURRICANE ALLEY

HERE, AND FOR SOME REASON

THAT STORM BYPASSED THE

VIRGINIA CAPES, AND IT DID

SOME FLOODING, BUT THEN IT

HOOKED INTO THE NORTHEAST IN

A RATHER STRANGE TRACK AND

THEN MET ANOTHER STORM

COMING FROM THE WEST.

AND IT WAS A MESS.

I TALKED TO SOMEBODY I KNOW

UP IN THE WESTERN PART OF

VIRGINIA, AND HE SAID IN HIS

AREA, THREE INCHES OF SNOW.

BUT UP IN THE WEST POCO

SNOWSHOE, THEY HAD TWO FEET

OF SNOW.

ALL OF WEST VIRGINIA, IT IS

VERY SERIOUS.

TREES ARE DOWN.

THEY WERE WITHOUT POWER AND

WATER.

Kristi: THAT'S THE

THING, THERE ARE OVER FIVE

MILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT

POWER.

MY PARENTS INCLUDED AND MY

SISTERS INCLUDED.

THEY ALL LIVE IN NEW

JERSEY.

THEY HAVEN'T HAD POWER FOR

TWO DAYS, AND IT'S COLD.

Pat: HOW ARE THEY

DOING?

FORTUNATELY FOR MY

PARENTS, I CALLED THEM AND

THEIR PHONE LINE STILL

WORKS.

THEY'VE GOT THE FIREPLACE,

AND THEY'VE GOT A GAS STOVE,

WHICH IS A BLESSING.

MY OTHER SISTER, NOT ONLY

DID SHE NOT HAVE POWER, A

HUGE TREE FELL AND SHE IS

TRAPPED.

SHE CAN'T GET IN OR OUT.

ANOTHER ONE OF MY FRIENDS, A

TREE COLLAPSED IN THE BACK

OF HER PORCH.

SHE CALLED ME, AND SHE SAID

THE TREE COLLAPSED, TWO

INCHES AWAY FROM MY SON

HEAD.

I SAID, ARE YOU OKAY?

AND I SAID WE'RE PRAYING,

AND SHE SAID YEAH, THE HEDGE

OF PRAYER SAVED THEM AND

THEY ARE OKAY.

Pat: LEE WEBB TELLS US

WHAT THE CANDIDATES ARE

DOING NOW.

Lee: THAT'S OKAY, PAT.

I'LL ANSWER ANYTHING.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS SKIPPING

VISITS TO BATTLEGROUND

STATES FOR THE THIRD

STRAIGHT DAY.

INSTEAD, HE WILL TOUR

ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY,

WITH GOVERNOR CHRIS

CHRISTIE.

I UNDERSTAND WE JUST GOT

WORD THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL

RESUME HIS CAMPAIGN

TOMORROW.

MEANWHILE, MITT ROMNEY

RETURNS TO THE CAMPAIGN

TRAIL TODAY.

HE CANCELLED EIGHT EVENTS IN

FIVE STATES BECAUSE OF THE

STORM.

JUST SIX DAYS BEFORE THE

ELECTION, POLLS STILL SHOW A

VERY CLOSE RACE.

ROMNEY HAS A SLIGHT LEAD OF

49 TO 47% IN THE RASMUSSEN

NATIONAL TRACKING SURVEY,

WITH THE MARGIN OF ERROR.

RACES IN THE BATTLEGROUND

STATES ALSO REMAIN TIGHT.

A GROUP OF CHRISTIANS IS

PRAYING ON THE WHITE HOUSE

LAWN IN ADVANCE OF THE

ELECTION.

THEY HAVE BEEN AT IT 24/7

SINCE LATE SEPTEMBER.

HOW THEY OBTAINED THAT PLOT

OF LAND SO CLOSE TO THE

EXECUTIVE MANSION IS A STORY

IN ITSELF.

WENDY GRIFFITH WENT THERE TO

CHECK IT OUT.

Reporter: DURING A TIME

OF FASTING AND PRAYER, JASON

HERSHEY ASKED THE LORD, HOW

CAN I INTERCEDE FOR AMERICA

IN 2012?

HE FEEL LIKE HE SAID DO

WHAT KING DAVID DID.

WHEN WE WENT TO GET THE

PERMIT, THE PARK SERVICE

ACTUALLY SUGGESTED -- THEY

SAID, HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT

THE WHITE HOUSE TO THE

LEFT.

Reporter: DO YOU THINK

THE PRESIDENT KNOWS YOU ALL

ARE OUT THERE?

WE KNOW HE KNOWS WE'RE

OUT THERE.

THE PARK SERVICE ASSURED US

THAT THIS CLOSE TO THE WHITE

HOUSE, THEY ABSOLUTELY ARE

REQUIRED TO REPORT TO THE

PRESIDENT EVERYTHING THAT

HAPPENS HERE.

Reporter: HERSHEY SAYS

THE GOAL IS NOT POLITICAL.

AT THE TIME WHERE THERE

IS THIS GREAT DEBATE AT

WHICH WAY THE COUNTRY IS

HEADING, WE WANT TO PUT A

TARGET ON JESUS AND SAY SEEK

FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS

RIGHRIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL

THING WILL BE GIVEN TO

YOU.

Reporter: AND IT SAYS

HERE ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN

IS THE KEY THAT WILL TURN

THIS NATION AROUND.

SHOUTS OF JOY AND VICTORY

RESOUND FROM THE TENTS OF

THE RIGHTEOUS.

WE BELIEVE THIS TENT HAS TO

HAVE A SOUND EMANATING FROM

IT OF SOUND AND VICTORY.

Reporter: PEOPLE FROM

ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE

JOINED THIS EFFORT TO PRAY

FOR AMERICA.

INCLUDING THIS YOUTH GROUP

FROM A MISSION BASE IN

HAWAII.

IT IS SERIOUSLY

INCREDIBLE.

I'M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE.

MY HOPE FOR THE RESULT IS TO

JUST SEE PEOPLE COME BACK TO

GOD.

*

WELL, I JUST LIKE THE

LORD REALLY CALLED ME HERE.

HE WAS LIKE, HEY, YOU HAVE A

HEART FOR ME, WORSHIP ME.

YOU HAVE TO PRAISE MY NAME.

I FELT LIKE HE WAS, LIKE, A

SIGN.

Reporter: HERSHEY SAYS

IT IS VERY SIGNIFICANT TO BE

THIS CLOSE TO THE OVAL

OFFICE.

I THINK IT IS A PROPHETIC

STATEMENT FROM THE LORD

HIMSELF, THAT HE SHOULD BE

AT THE HIGHEST PLACE IN

EVERY SECTOR OF SOCIETY IN

AMERICA.

I ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE THAT

THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IS

THE STRATEGY.

WHERE HE IS, EVERYTHING

CHANGES.

Reporter: WENDY

GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS, THE

WHITE HOUSE.

Lee: DURING THE STORM,

DAVID'S TENT MOVED THEIR

WORSHIP TO FAITH TABERNACLE

CHURCH, BUT THEY PLAN TO

MOVE BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE

LAWN AS SOON AS THE WEATHER

PERMITS.

THEY WILL STAY THROUGH

ELECTION DAY.

DAVID'S TENT, BY THE WAY,

WELCOMES VISITORS.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THEM BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

NOW FOR MORE ABOUT PRAYING

FOR AMERICA, LET'S GO BACK

TO PAT.

Pat: WE SET 40 DAYS OF

PRAYING, AND WE'RE

CONTINUING THAT RIGHT UP TO

THE ELECTION.

THIS IS A CRUCIAL ELECTION.

GOD LOVES THIS COUNTRY, AND

I WANT YOU TO KNOW AMERICA

IS NOT FINISHED.

DON'T LISTEN TO THESE

PROPHETS OF DOOM THAT WRITE

THIS COUNTRY OFF.

YES, THERE ARE MANY THINGS

HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY

THAT ARE DISPLEASING TO GOD,

NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

AND THE WRATH MAY COME ONE

DAY, BUT RIGHT NOW GOD STILL

HAS A PURPOSE FOR AMERICA,

AND WE WANT TO PRAY THAT HIS

WILL WILL BE FULFILLED.

SO WILL YOU PLEASE JOIN US

NOW.

SOMEBODY SAYS I WANT TO PRAY

FOR A SPIRITUAL RENEWAL,

ASKING GOD FOR HIS MERCY,

AND FOR THE SCHOOLS ACROSS

AMERICA, FOR THE STUDENTS,

THE STAFF, AND THE

FACULTIES.

WHAT ELSE?

Kristi: HELP

RESTORATION FOR THE VICTIMS

OF DISASTER SANDY AND OTHER

DISASTERS AROUND THE WORLD.

ALSO UNITY IN THE NATION, IN

EVERY HOME, IN EVERY FAMILY,

AND EVERY MARRIAGE.

Pat: LORD, WE JOIN,

ONCE AGAIN, WITH PEOPLE ALL

ACROSS THIS NATION.

OVER A QUARTER OF A MILLION

SAID THEY'LL PRAY WITH US,

AND WE PRAY WITH THEM THAT

WE MIGHT SEE A GREAT MOVE OF

GOD IN THIS NATION.

LORD, THIS ELECTION IS IN

YOUR HAND.

THE KING'S HEART IS IN THE

HAND OF THE LORD.

HE TURNS IT LIKE WATER.

LORD, YOU SET UP LEADERS AND

YOU TAKE DOWN LEADERS.

AND WE PRAY, GOD, THAT YOU

MIGHT HAVE YOUR WILL IN THIS

NATION.

BRING US THE GODLY MEN AND

WOMEN TO MAKE WISE DECISIONS

FOR ALL OF US AS A PEOPLE.

IN JESUS' NAME, HEAR OUR

PRAYER.

AMEN.

Kristi: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO BE

TALKING ABOUT HEAVEN AND

HELL.

THIS HAS REALLY TOUCHED

PEOPLE.

THE ELECTION IS COMING UP,

SURE.

BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN YOU

DIE?

WHERE DO YOU GO?

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEATH?

IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH?

AND WHAT ABOUT HEAVEN?

WHAT ABOUT HELL?

WE HAVE EYE WITNESS REPORTS

THIS WHOLE WEEK.

AND KRISTI IS GOING TO TELL

US WHAT WE'VE GOT TODAY.

Kristi: I AM, PAT.

COMING UP ON "THE 700 CLUB,"

THE TEENAGER FINDS THE

FATHER HE ALWAYS WANTED, THE

DEVIL HIMSELF.

WE HAD TO DRESS HIM LIKE

A FAMILY MEMBER.

MY FATHER, I'M HERE.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPEAK

TO ME ABOUT?

WHAT IS IT YOU WANT ME TO

DO?

Kristi: FIND OUT WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN HE COMES FACE

TO FACE WITH SATAN, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: WHAT HAPPENS AFTER

WE DIE?

THAT'S A QUESTION EVERYBODY

WANTS TO KNOW.

DO YOU GO TO SOME SLEEP?

ARE YOU EXTINGUISHED?

OR DO YOU LIVE ON?

AND IF YOU LIVE ON, WHERE DO

YOU LIVE?

IS THERE A HEAVEN?

IS THERE A HELL?

AND WHAT ARE THEY LIKE?

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO TELL

YOU ABOUT THAT TODAY FROM

EYE WITNESS ACCOUNTS.

TODAY, AS YOU KNOW, IS

HALLOWEEN.

SOME PEOPLE WILL DRESS UP AS

DEVILS AND GO

TRICK-OR-TREATING.

BUT FOR JOHN RAMEREZ, THE

DEVIL WAS MORE THAN A

COSTUME.

HE WAS JOHN'S FATHER.

Reporter: JOHN RAMIREZ

GREW UP IN THE BRONX, WHERE

HIS RELATIVES PRACTICED

SANTALIA.

MY FAMILY WAS WITCHES AND

WARLOCKS.

Reporter: JOHN LONGED

FOR A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS

DAD, BUT HIS FATHER WAS

ABUSIVE.

THERE WAS NO LOVE.

THERE WAS NO COMPASSION.

WE WATCHED HIM BEAT MY

MOTHER IN THE HOUSE.

HE CAME IN DRUNK MOST OF THE

TIME, DEMANDING STUFF,

ASKING FOR STUFF.

IF THINGS WEREN'T DONE A

CERTAIN WAY, THERE WAS

ALWAYS PUT DOWNS, HURTFUL

WORDS, DUMMY, STUPID, YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO AMOUNT TO

NOTHING -- THAT KIND OF

STUFF.

I WOULD STAND BY THE DOOR

AND LOOK TO SEE WHAT HE WAS

UP TO, BECAUSE I WAS LOOKING

TO SEE IF THERE WAS TIME FOR

ME, JUST TO HAVE

INTERACTION, FOR MY DAD AND

I TO DO SOMETHING.

BUT HE WAS CONNECTED TO THE

DEMONS.

Reporter: JOHN'S MOTHER

WAS ALSO INFLUENCEDED

INFLUENCED BY SANTARIA.

THE LADY SAID, I HAD 30

DAYS TO DO THE CARDS OR I

WOULD BE BLIND.

MY MOTHER WAS A GOOD MOTHER,

AND SO WE DID IT.

THEY STARTED CHANTING AND

CALLING THE FIVE MAIN GODS,

THE DEMONS FROM SANTERIA.

Reporter: FROM THAT

POINT, JOHN'S LIFE CHANGED.

MY WHOLE PERSONALITY WAS

NO LONGER THERE.

I FELT LIKE SOMEONE TOOK A

BLANK BLANKET AND CHANGED MY

SPIRITUALLY.

Reporter: JOHN'S

INVOLVEMENT WITH SANTERIA

HAPPENED QUICKLY.

I WAS BEING TAUGHT.

I STARTED SNEAKING INTO

FUNERALS, BU BECAUSE I

WANTED TO GET THAT SOUL.

WHEN DRUG DEALERS DIED IN

THE STREETS, I WANTED TO RUN

OUT AND GET THE BLOOD

BECAUSE I COULD USE THAT

BLOOD TO DO WITCHCRAFT.

PEOPLE KNEW I WAS A FORCE TO

BE RECKONED WITH.

I LIKED THAT POWER.

I WAS TALKED DOWN TO AS A

YOUNG BOY.

NOW I HAD THE AUTHORITY AND

THE POWER SO I COULD DO

WHATEVER I WANT.

Reporter: WHEN JOHN WAS

13, HIS FATHER WAS MURDERED

IN A BAR FIGHT.

JOHN GAVE CREDIT TO THE

DEVIL FOR RELIEVING HIS

MOTHER'S SUFFERING.

I WOULD BE UP AT 5:00 IN

THE MORNING, CALLING OUT TO

GOD, SAYING HELP MY MOTHER.

AND NO ONE SHOWED UP.

BUT THE DEVIL SHOWED UP

BECAUSE HE KILLED MY DAD.

I BELIEVED THE DEVIL WHEN HE

SAID NO ONE LOVES YOU, BUT I

LOVE YOU.

YOUR FATHER CAN'T PROVIDE

FOR YOU, BUT I CAN PROVIDE

FOR YOU.

THE DEVIL SAID, DO THE

RELIGION.

I WILL GIVE YOU EVERYTHING

YOU WANT, JUST ASK.

Reporter: JOHN SAYS

SATAN BECAME THE FATHER HE

NEVER HAD.

JOHN WAS DEVOTED TO HIM.

I'D LIGHT UP MY CANDLES, AND

I SPIT THE RUM.

AND I SPIT THE CIGAR SMOKE.

IF I DIDN'T HAVE MONEY, I

CUT MYSELF AN AND USED MY

OWN BLOOD AND POURED IT.

THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE OF THE

ROOM CHANGES.

YOU HAVE TO DRESS THEM AS A

FAMILY MEMBER.

MY FATHER, I'M HERE.

WHAT IS IT YOU WANT TO SPEAK

TO ME ABOUT?

WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?

Reporter: AS TIME WENT

ON, JOHN PRACTICED THE DARK

ART OUTSIDE HIS APARTMENT.

IN CLUBS, I STARTED

LOOKING FOR CHRISTIANS.

I KNEW IF I COULD GET INTO

IT, AND YOU HAD IT IN YOUR

SYSTEM, ALL I HAVE TO DO IS

SAY, LISTEN, I HAVE

SOMETHING TO TELL YOU.

AND YOU WILL OPEN THE DOOR

AND SAY, WHAT IS IT YOU NEED

TO TELL ME, AND YOU GAVE ME

GATEWAY.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY.

HE BECAME A HIGH PRIEST IN A

FORM OF AFRICAN

SPIRITUALISM.

AS HE BECAME MORE POWERFUL,

JOHN TOOK WARFARE MORE

SERIOUSLY.

THE DEVIL TOLD ME

WHATEVER YOU KILL IN THE

SPIRIT ROUND, YOU CAN KILL

IN THE NATURAL.

I WOULD LEAVE MY BODY HOME

AND PROJECT MYSELF IN

DIFFERENT BURROUGHS AND

DIFFERENT NEIGHBORHOODS.

I WOULD SPEAK CURSES AND

SPEAK THINGS I WANTED TO

HAPPEN IN THE

NEIGHBORHOODS.

SOMETIMES I WOULD GO INTO

NEIGHBORHOODS, AND THERE

WOULD BE A GROUP OF PEOPLE

ON THE CORNER, HOLDING

HANDS, PRAYING UP A STORM.

AND THERE WAS NO

ACCOMPLISHMENT IN THEIR

NEIGHBORHOOD.

THAT NEIGHBORHOOD WAS

SANCTIFIED, BLESSED THROUGH

PRAYER.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOU COULDN'T

TOUCH IT.

BUT IN THE OTHER

NEIGHBORHOODS, IT WAS PARTY

TIME.

Reporter: AROUND THAT

TIME, JOHN MET A GIRL WHO

INTRIGUED HIM.

I THOUGHT, I COULD HANG

OUT WITH HER.

SHE IS GOOD-LOOKING, AND SHE

INVITED ME TO CHURCH.

Reporter: AND SHE ALSO

INVITED HIM TO MEET HER

PARENTS, WHO TALKED TO HIM

ABOUT JESUS.

I SAID, YOUR PARENTS ARE

CRAZY.

LET ME DIGEST THE FOOD AND

THEN THEY TALK ABOUT THIS

JESUS GUY.

I THOUGHT I WOULD GO TO

CHURCH AND KILL ANIMALS ALL

NIGHT LOPPING, AND THEN I

WOULD COME BACK AND SEE HER,

BUT SHE DIDN'T KNOW.

Reporter: JOHN FOUND

THE CHRISTIANS AM MOVING

AMUSING AND HARMLESS.

I KEPT COMING TO CHURCH

TO PLEASE HER, BUT I WASN'T

GOING TO LEAVE THE PEOPLE I

WAS COMMITTED TO.

Reporter: ONE SUNDAY

MORNING THE PASTOR GAVE AN

ALTER CALL.

JOHN CAME FORWARD, AND

WASN'T PREPARED FOR WHAT

HAPPENED NEXT.

AW I THOUGHT I WAS

PROTECTED.

I WAS THROWING PEOPLE

AROUND.

AND THEN 200 SOMETHING

PEOPLE GOT UP AND RAISED

UP.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

I SAW THE POWER OF GOD IN

THE CHURCH.

ONE OF THE GUYS WAS

WHISPERING IN MY EAR, SAY

JESUS IS LORD.

JESUS IS LORD.

SAY IT.

I COULDN'T OPEN MY HOUSE.

BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN I COULD

SAY IT, JESUS IS LORD, AND

THE DEVIL LEFT.

Reporter: JOHN WAS

EMBARRASSED BY THE OUTBURST,

BUT WAS NOT SURE WHAT TO DO

NEXT.

ONE OF THE ELDERS APPROACHED

HIM A FEW DAYS LATER.

HE SAID JESUS WANTS YOU

TO HAVE THIS.

HE SAID YOU'RE A WARRIOR FOR

CHRIST.

FOR SOMEONE TO SAY THIS IS A

GIFT FROM CHRIST.

HE LOVES YOU.

TO ME, THAT WAS AMAZING.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT

JESUS LOVED ME.

BUT I WAS COMMITTED TO THE

DARK SIDE.

I WAS COMMITTED TO THE

DEMONS.

I WAS COMMITTED TO THE

DEVIL.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

JOHN DECIDED TO END THE

STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE TWO

WORLDS THE ONLY WAY HE KNEW

HOW.

I SAID, LORD, JESUS CAN'T

HAVE ME, THE DEVIL CAN'T

HAVE ME.

THE BEST WAY OUT IS

SUICIDE.

IN MY IGNORANCE, IN MY

SHAME.

IN MY MIND, I WAS SO FAR

GONE.

SPIRITUALLY DRAINED.

SPIRITUALLY DRAINED.

Reporter: JOHN DIDN'T

KNOW HOW TO PRAY, BUT HE

BEGAN TO TALK TO GOD.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY

CALL YOU, JESUS -- WHATEVER

THEY CALL IN YOU IN CHURCH,

I DON'T LIKE YOU.

I WANT NO DEALINGS WITH

YOU.

I HATE YOU.

I DON'T WANT TO BE PART OF

YOU.

I NEVER WANT TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

I DISOWN YOU.

IF THAT IS GOING TO GET YOU

AWAY FROM ME, I WILL WORSHIP

THE DEVIL UNTIL THE DAY I

DIE.

I WHISPERED, IF YOU'RE

BIGGER THAN THE GOD I SERVE,

YOU SHOW ME TONIGHT OR LEAVE

ME ALONE.

Reporter: JOHN WENT TO

SLEEP AND DREAMED HE WAS ON

A SUBWAY.

THE DREAM WAS FILLED WITH

PEOPLE, AND WE WERE GOING

SOMEWHERE THAT I KNOW WAS

NOT GOOD.

AS THE TRAIN WAS GOING

FASTER THAN LIGHT, THERE WAS

A LATER DRESSED VERY

ELEGANT.

AND SHE STARTED TALKING TO

ME IN DEMONIC TONGUE,

TRADER, YOU'RE LEAVING US.

I TRIED TO GET IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE TRAIN, IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE PEOPLE, SO SHE WON'T

REACH ME.

A POP HIT, AND THE DOORS

OPENED, AND I ENDED UP IN

HELL.

Reporter: JOHN STEPPED

OUT OF THE SUBWAY IN INTO

THE DARKNESS.

AS I WENT THROUGH THE

TUNNEL TO HELLLY HELL, THE

HEAT IS NOTHING THAT YOU

FEEL ON EARTH.

THERE IS NO HOPE.

HOPE IS REMOVED.

THE DEVIL CAME OUT BIGGER

AND STRONGER.

HE SAYS TO ME --

I'VE BEEN WITH YOU SINCE

YOU WERE NINE YEARS OLD.

I'VE BEEN A FATHER TO YOU.

I'VE GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING.

HE SAID, I'M GOING TO

KEEP YOU HERE.

IF I CAN KEEP YOU HERE, YOU

WON'T WAKE UP, UPSTAIRS,

WHICH IS ON EARTH.

AND HE SAID --

YOU BELONG TO ME.

AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

LEAVE.

YOU KNOW TOO MANY SECRETS

ABOUT MY RELIGION.

WHEN HE WENT TO GRAB ME

TO SNUFF ME, A CROSS WILL

APPEAR IN MY HANDS.

I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW A

CROSS WOULD APPEAR IN MY

HANDS.

I PUT IT ON THE DEVELOP, AND

HE FELT LIKE HE WAS

NOTHING.

HE FELT LIKE HE WAS A BABY.

NO POWERS AT THE FOOT OF THE

CROSS.

Reporter: WHEN JOHN

WOKE UP, HE WAS A CHANGED

MAN.

AND I KNEW THAT JESUS THE

LORD.

I BENT MY KNEE TO THE

CROSS.

AND JESUS CAME INTO MY

LIFE.

I TOOK A WHITE PIECE OF

PAPER, AND I WROTE DOWN I

WAS A SERVANT, A SLAVE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

I WILL SERVE YOU ALL OF THE

DAYS OF MY LIFE.

Reporter: JOHN THREW

OUT ALL OF THE DEVELOP

PARAPHERNALIA, BUT THE

BATTLE WASN'T OVER.

AT NIGHT, I WOULD FEEL

THE PRESENCE COME INTO THE

ROOM.

SOMETIMES I WOULD SEE WHAT

WAS THERE, AND SOMETIMES I

WOULD SEE UP THIS WAY AND

YOU WOULD SEE SOMEONE'S HAND

GRAB ME BY MY THROAT AND

PICK ME UP OFF THE BED.

SOMETIMES THEY GRAB MY FEET

AND THE BED WOULD SHAKE, AND

THEY WOULD BRING ME UP AND

LEVITATE THE BED, AND

SOMETIMES I MIGHT EVEN REACH

THE CEILING.

AND I COULDN'T BREATHE.

I COULDN'T CRY OUT.

I COULDN'T TALK.

I FELT LIKE THEY WERE

CHOKING THE LIFE OUT OF ME.

I WOULD TRY TO CRY OUT FOR

JESUS, AND THE WORDS

WOULDN'T COME OUT.

AND THEN AT THE END, JESUS,

HELP ME, JESUS, HELP ME,

SAVE ME, AND THE DEVIL WOULD

GO AWAY.

I ASKED THE LORD, WHY WOULD

YOU ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO

ME, WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW

THESE PEOPLE TO ABUSE ME

THIS WE.

I GAVE MY LIFE TO YOU.

AND HE SAID TO ME, I WANTED

TO KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME

AND HOW MUCH YOU TRUST ME.

AND NO DEVIL EVER SHOWED UP

TO MY HOUSE EVER AGAIN.

Reporter: JOHN SAYS HE

WOULDN'T TRADE ANYTHING FOR

WHAT HE FOUND IN CHRIST.

FOR 25 YEARS IN MY LIFE,

I COULD DO ANYTHING TO

ANYBODY.

I COUNT THAT AS BEING

FOOLISH.

CHRIST, HE IS MY ALL IN

ALL.

HE IS THE GOD I BELIEVE.

HE WALKS WITH ME.

I HEAR HIS WORDS IN MY EAR.

Reporter: TODAY JOHN

SHARES THE GOSPEL WITH

EVERYONE HE CAN.

HE HAS WRITTEN A BOOK ABOUT

HIS EXPERIENCES CALLED, "OUT

OF THE DEVIL'S CALDERON."

I'VE GOT PEACE.

I HAVE FULFILLMENT, I HAVE A

PURPOSE, AND I HAVE A

DESTINY TODAY.

AND ALL BECAUSE I SAID YES

TO THE CROSS.

AND I AM AN EVANGELIST IN

THE KINGDOM OF LIFE.

NO MORE AN EVANGELIST FOR

THE DARK SIDE.

I EXPOSE THE DARK SIDE EVERY

TIME THE LORD GIVES ME A

CHANCE.

BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE TO

DIE OR SHED BLOOD.

JESUS SHED THE BLOOD FOR

YOU.

THAT'S THE BLOOD THAT

COUNTS, THE ONE AT THE

CROSS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, LIKE IT

OR NOT, DEVIL IS REAL.

IT'S NOT JUST A NAMELESS

FORCE.

EVIL.

IT IS A PERSON.

IT IS A BEING.

HE WAS, AT ONE TIME, AN

ANGEL, IN THE HIGHEST OF

GOD'S CREATION.

AND THEN HE FELL, AND HE HAS

NOTHING BUT HATRED BECAUSE

HE KNOWS HIS DAYS ARE

SHORT.

HIS TIME TO ROAM THE EARTH

IS COMING TO AN END.

BUT RIGHT NOW HE WANTS TO

SNATCH AS MANY PEOPLE AS HE

CAN AND TAKE THEM INTO

HELL.

HE WANTS TO DECEIVE THEM AND

BLIND THEM AND TAKE THEM

AWAY FROM THE GOSPEL.

HE WILL MOCK THE GOSPEL.

HE WILL MOCK GOD.

HE WILL BLASPHEMY THE HOLY

SPIRIT, HE WILL BLASPHEMY

JESUS, BECAUSE HE KNOWS HIS

DAYS ARE SHORT, AND HE HAS

GREAT WRATH.

BUT YOU KNOW SOMETHING?

THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST

WILL DEFEAT HIM.

THE CROSS OF JESUS, THE

DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF

JESUS -- WHEN JESUS HUNG ON

THE CROSS, AND HE SAID IT IS

FINISHED, HE HAD TAKEN ALL

THE ABUSE THAT THE DEVIL

COULD HEAP ON A HUMAN BEING,

AND HE ABSORBED IT, AND HE

WON.

HE WON.

JESUS IS THE VICTOR.

HE WON.

HE TRIUMPHED OVER SATAN, AND

HE DID IT FOR YOU.

WELL, WHICH IS IT GOING TO

BE?

YOU HAVE NO CHOICE, TO SAY I

DON'T WANT TO HAVE ANYTHING

TO DO WITH EITHER ONE OF

THEM.

YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE.

LIKE THE BOB DYLAN SONG,

YOU'VE GOT TO SERVE

SOMEBODY.

YOU'RE EITHER GOING TO SERVE

JESUS OR YOU'RE GOING TO

SERVE THE DEVIL.

THERE ISN'T A MIDDLE

GROUND.

THERE ISN'T, LIKE, A NEWS

NEUTRALITY.

IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

BECAUSE THE WHOLE WORLD IS

DIVIDED INTO THE FORCES OF

LIGHT AND THE FORCES OF

DARKNESS.

JUST LIKE NIGHT AND DAY.

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND

BETWEEN LIGHT AND DARKNESS.

I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TODAY,

DO YOU WANT LIGHT?

DO YOU WANT EVERLASTING

LIFE?

DO YOU WANT TO BE FREE?

DON'T SUBMIT.

YOU SAY, WELL, I'M HOOKED ON

DRUGS.

THAT COMES FROM SATAN.

I'M HOOKED ON ALCOHOL.

IT COMES FROM SATAN.

I'M HOOKED ON PORNOGRAPHY.

IT COMES FROM SATAN.

I'M HOOKED ON THINGS I'M

ASHAMED OF.

IT COMES FROM SATAN.

JESUS CHRIST WANTS YOU TO BE

FREE.

IF YOU WANT THAT FREEDOM,

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW,

THESE WORDS, SAY IT WITH ME:

JESUS -- SAY IT.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU NOW.

I REBUKE SATAN AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL, AND I

RENOUNCE THE DARK SIDE, AND

I TURN TO THE LIGHT.

LORD JESUS, I GIVE MY LIFE

TO YOU, AND I ASK YOU TO

COME INTO MY HEART, LIVE

YOUR LIFE IN ME, AND I WILL

LIVE FOR YOU, AND I WILL

SERVE YOU, ALL THE DAYS OF

MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT YOU TO REJOICE IN WHAT

GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU.

AND I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING -- YOU SAY, WHAT

DO I DO NEXT?

I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE YOU

LIKE AN ORPHAN.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING

THAT WILL HELP YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT IS A COMPACT DISC, AND

YOU CAN PUT IT IN YOUR C.D.

PLAYER.

BORROW ONE IF YOU DON'T HAVE

ONE.

THIS THING IS FAIRLY SHORT.

73 MINUTES, I BELIEVE IT

IS.

AND IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT

YOU'VE JUST DONE AND WHAT IS

TO BE DONE NEXT.

GOD HAS A GREAT PLAN FOR

YOU, A NEW DAY.

AND YOU'VE JUST BEEN TAKEN

AND MOVED FROM THE KINGDOM

OF DARKNESS TO THE KINGDOM

OF LIGHT.

SO REJOICE.

I WANT YOU TO PICK UP YOUR

PHONE RIGHT NOW AND CALL AND

SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

I WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN

THE WORKS OF SATAN.

I'M GOING TO BE FREE IN

JESUS CHRIST.

CALL NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

KRISTI?

Kristi: THANK YOU SO

MUCH, PAT.

I'M STILL OVERWHELMED BY

THAT STORY.

IN THE MINISTRY, GOD IS SO

GOOD.

UP NEXT, SEE WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN AN 18 WHEELER PLOWED

OVER AN S.U.V., TRAPPING A

WOMAN INSIDE.

WE COULD TELL RIGHT AWAY

BOTH OF HER ARMS WERE

BROKEN.

AND AT LEAST ONE OF HER

LEGS.

IT WAS DEFINITELY

LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES.

Kristi: BUT SEE HOW

THIS WOMAN BEAT THE ODDS

AFTER THIS.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IRAN'S MILITARY IS

CONDUCTING TWO DAYS OF ERROR

AND GROUND TRAINING

EXERCISES.

THE DRILLS ARE AIMED AS

UPGRADING COMBAT READINESS

IN CASE OF AN ATTACK.

THE STATE NETWORK AIRED THIS

VIDEO.

ISRAEL HAS SUGGESTED IT WILL

USE MILITARY FORCE TO STOP

IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM IF

NECESSARY.

A CHRISTIAN COLLEGE IN

ARIZONA IS TURNING DOWN AN

OFFER NOW FOR A FREE CAMPUS

IN MASSACHUSETTS.

GRAND CANYON UNIVERSITY SAYS

IT HAS TO REJECT THE DEAL

BECAUSE OF $30 MILLION IN

EXTRA COSTS FOR VARIOUS

UPGRADES.

THE 217-ACRE CAMPUS WAS ONCE

THE HOME OF THE SCHOOL

FOUNDED BY 19th CENTURY

EVANGELIST D.L. MOODY.

HOBBY LOBBY BOUGHT THE

PROPERTY A FEW YEARS AGO AND

RESTORED IT.

IT IS UNOCCUPIED RIGHT NOW,

AND THE SEARCH BEGINS FOR

ANOTHER RECIPIENT.

PAT AND KRISTI WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

AFTER THIS.

Kristi: WHEN AN

18-WHEELER RAN A STOPLIGHT,

IT SHEARED UF THE TOP OF

DURINDA LOVE'S S.U.V.

AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT,

SHE WASN'T A CHRISTIAN, BUT

SHE IS NOW.

THANKS TO AN AMAZING VISION

AND A RECOVERY SO MIRACULOUS

HER DOCTORS CAN HARDLY

BELIEVE IT.

Reporter: DURINDA LOVE

NEVER SAW IT COMING, A SEMI

TRUCK PLOWED OVER THE TOP OF

HER CAR.

IT BARELY MISSED HER HEAD,

BUT PRACTICALLY SEVERED HER

ARM.

THE CAR LITERALLY COLLAPSED

AROUND HER, TRAPPING HER

INSIDE.

WE COULD TELL RIGHT AWAY

THAT BOTH OF HER ARMS WERE

BROKEN, AND WE KNEW AT LEAST

ONE OF HER LEGS WERE BROKEN,

POSSIBLY THE OTHER ONE.

PLUS WE WAS PRETTY SURE SHE

PROBABLY HAD SOME INTERNAL

INJURIES TO GO WITH THAT.

IT WAS A PRETTY LOW

PERCENTAGE ON WHETHER SHE

WAS GOING TO MAKE IT OR

NOT.

IT WAS DEFINITELY

LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES.

Reporter: RESCUE

WORKERS TRIED FOR 45 MINUTES

TO GET DURINDA OUT OF THE

CAR.

FINALLY SHE WAS LIFT

FLIGHTED TO A HOSPITAL IN

INDIANA.

IT WAS VERY GRAVE.

SHE LOST A LOT OF BLOOD WHEN

SHE FIRST CAME IN.

THE FRACTURES THAT SHE HAD

WERE ALL VERY SERIOUS.

AND THEN WHEN YOU THROW IN

ON TOP OF IT, THAT SHE HAD

ALL OF THESE INJURIES AND

ALL OF THESE OTHER

LACERATIONS AND TEARS IN THE

SKIN.

SHE HAD A RUPTURED SPLEEN

AND A RUPTURED LIVER.

SHE WAS IN A VERY, VERY

SERIOUS CONDITION.

Reporter: FOR TWO WEEKS

DOCTORS TRIED TO PUT DURINDA

BACK TOGETHER.

SHE HAD TOS RESUSCITATED

TWICE AND SUFFERED A MASSIVE

STROKE.

SHE HAD SEVEN DIFFERENT

SURGERIES BUT REMAINED IN A

COMA.

DOCTORS OFFERED LITTLE HOPE

FOR HER SURVIVAL.

DURINDA'S MOTHER DIDN'T MOVE

FROM HER BEDSIDE.

EVEN THOUGH SHE WASN'T A

CHRISTIAN, SHE BEGGED GOD TO

SAVE HER LIFE.

WHEN I FIRST WOKE UP, THE

FIRST THING I REMEMBER IS

SEEING GOD.

I WAS ON THE STAIRWAY OF

HEAVEN, AND WE WERE STANDING

AT THE BOTTOM, AND GOD WAS

HOLDING ME IN HIS ARMS.

I WAS HELD LIKE A BABY.

I CAN REMEMBER JUST HEARING

THE VOICE BEHIND ME, TALKING

TO ME, SAYING, YOU KNOW,

IT'S OKAY.

YOU'RE FINE.

YOU'RE SAFE NOW.

I KNEW GOD WAS THERE.

I JUST KNEW IT.

I DID NOT SEE HIS FACE, BUT

I KNEW HE WAS HOLDING ME IN

HIS ARMS.

I KNEW HE HAD SAVED ME.

I WAS NEVER SAVED.

I WASN'T A CHRISTIAN.

I NEVER KNEW HOW TO ACTUALLY

ASK GOD TO FORGIVE ME FOR

ALL OF MY SINS.

Reporter: DURINDA HAD A

LONG AND HARD RECOVERY AHEAD

OF HER.

SHE REMAINED BEDRIDDEN AT

HOME FOR THREE MONTHS.

HE IS HAD TO LEARN HOW TO DO

EVERYTHING AGAIN.

I I WAS SO SCARED I WOULD

NEVER WALK AGAIN.

I HAD PHYSICAL THERAPISTS,

AND I LEARNED TO WALK ON A

WALKER.

AND THEN, ON THE 24th,

THEY TOOK THE WALKER FROM

ME.

AND I WAS WALKING ON MY

OWN.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

I WAS CRYING.

I WAS LIKE, OH, MY GOSH, I

AM WALKING.

Reporter: DURINDA HAS

SURPASSED ALL EXPECTATIONS

FOR HER RECOVERY.

THEY SAID I WOULD

PROBABLY USE THE RIGHT ARM

AGAIN.

THEY WERE NEVER SURE IF I

WOULD EVER WALK RIGHT

AGAIN.

BUT I DO WALK AND I DO USE

MY RIGHT ARM.

A LOT OF TIMES WE SEE

PATIENTS WITH BAD BONE AND

JOINT INJURIES, BUT TO SEE

SOMEBODY WITH THIS NUMBER OF

BONE AND JOINT INJURIES, AND

THE ABDOMINAL INJURIES THAT

SHE HAD, YOU KNOW, THE BELLY

INJURIES AND THE STROKE, TO

HAVE COME BACK LIKE THIS, IT

IS REALLY PHENOMENAL.

IT IS AN EXCEPTIONAL

RECOVERY, ABSOLUTELY.

Reporter: EVEN MORE

THAN A SECOND CHANCE AT

LIFE, DURINDA IS THANKFUL

THAT GOD SAVED HER FOR

ETERNITY.

THERE IS A GOD OUT THERE,

AND HE WILL LISTEN TO YOU IF

YOU WANT TO TALK TO HIM AND

HAVE HIM COME INTO YOUR

HEART.

I'M LUCKY THAT I'M HERE AND

I GOT A SECOND CHANCE.

THAT I DID NOT DIE AND I GOT

TO ACCEPT HIM INTO MY

HEART.

AND HE FORGAVE ME FOR ALL OF

MY SINS.

Kristi: WOW, HOW DO WE

LIVE A LIFE WITHOUT THE LOVE

OF JESUS CHRIST, THE

KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST,

THE SAVING GRACE AND POWER

OF JESUS CHRIST.

I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH

YOU.

I'M STILL SO OVERWHELMED

ABOUT TODAY'S PROGRAM, AND

THE STORIES, THE STFS

STORIES FROM THIS WOMEN, AND

THE MAN WHO FOUND THE LOVE

OF JESUS CHRIST.

TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED FOR

ANY OF US.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE.

WE WANT TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR

PEOPLE AND CLOTHES FOR

PEOPLE, BUT, MORE

IMPORTANTLY, WE WANT TO GIVE

YOU AN EVERLASTING LIFE, A

LIFE WITH JESUS CHRIST.

THE ONLY WAY THAT CAN HAPPEN

IS IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR

HEART AND YOU BELIEVE IN

YOUR HEART THAT JESUS IS

LORD.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE

TODAY.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU FOR

HEALING IN YOUR BODY, BUT,

MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE WANT TO

ENCOURAGE YOU FOR HEALING IN

YOUR SOUL, AND THAT ONLY

COMES FROM THE LORD.

PAT AND I AR GOING TO PRAY

PRAY -- PAT AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR

SPIRIT.

Pat: THERE IS A MAN

NAMED ROBERT WHO LIVES IN

THE CITY OF SUFFOLK,

VIRGINIA.

HE DEVELOPED SCALES THAT

CAUSE CONSTANT ITCHING.

THE DOCTOR SAID IT WAS

PSORIASIS, BUT NONE OF THE

TREATMENTS WORKED.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND YOU GAVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, YOUR SKIN

CONSTANTLY ITCHES.

HIS WIFE CALLED HIM AND TOLD

HIM TO CLAIM IT.

THE NEXT MORNING HE WAS

HEALED AND HAS HAD NO

PROBLEMS SINCE.

Kristi: JENNIFER IN

WASHINGTON CONTRACTED A LUNG

AND PULMONARY INFECTION.

HE SENT HER TO A

HEMATOLOGIST WHO TOOK 10

VIALS OF BLOOD, BUT COULD

NOT FIGURE OUT THE

DIAGNOSIS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING THE

"THE 700 CLUB."

PAT, YOU SAID YOU HAVE A

DISEASE IN YOUR LUNG.

AND YOU SAID, YOU'VE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH A VERY RARE

BLOOD DISEASE, SO RARE THAT

THE DOCTORS SEEING YOU HAVE

NEVER RECEIVED THAT DISEASE

BEFORE.

IT WAS TERRY, SORRY.

AND JENNIFER CLAIMED BOTH OF

THOSE, AND THE DOCTORS SAID

THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A

MISTAKE BECAUSE THERE WAS NO

PROBLEM.

WHAT IS AMAZING, THAT BOTH

YOU AND TERRY HEARD THAT

WORD FROM GOD.

Pat: LET'S THANK GOD.

WE'RE JOINING HANDS

TOGETHER.

FATHER, THANK YOU, LORD.

WE COME TO YOU, LORD, AND WE

ARE TOTALLY AND ABSOLUTELY

UNWORTHY OF YOUR GOODNESS.

WE'RE AMAZED AT THE GOODNESS

OF THE LORD.

AND NOW WE PRAY FOR PEOPLE.

LORD, THERE ARE THOSE WITH

SKIN DISEASES, WITH ITCHING,

JUST LIKE WE'VE HEARD

BEFORE.

YOU'VE GOT AN INCREDIBLE

ITCH.

YOU JUST CAN'T STAND.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS SETTING YOU

FREE FROM THAT ITCHING.

YOU'RE FREE AND COMPLETELY

HEALED.

YOU'RE SKIN IS GOING TO BE

CLEAR AND BETTER THAN EVER

IN YOUR LIFE.

Kristi: THE LORD IS

HEALING SOMEONE -- YOU HAVE

A MASSIVE GROWTH, ACTUALLY

THE SIZE OF A GRAPEFRUIT ON

YOUR LEG.

THE LORD IS HEALING THAT.

ANOTHER PERSON HAS BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH OVARIAN

CANCER, AND GOD IS GOING TO

DO A MIRACLE AND ANSWER YOUR

PRAYERS RIGHT NOW AND HEAL

YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THERE IS A MAN WHO

HAS NIGHT SWEATS.

YOU'RE SLEEPING AND YOUR

BODY IS JUST DRENCHED WITH

SWEATS.

THERE IS A VIRUS THAT IS

CAUSING IT, AND THE LORD IS

HEALING YOU AS WE SPEAK

RIGHT NOW.

SOMEBODY HAS TWISTED YOUR

LEG AND YOUR KNEE, AND IT

KIND OF GOES OFF TO THE

SIDE, THE RIGHT SIDE, I

BELIEVE IT IS.

GOD IS STRAIGHTENING THAT

OUT RIGHT NOW.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR KNEE,

AND YOU'LL WATCH YOUR KNEE

AND YOUR LEG STRAIGHTEN AS

WE SPEAK IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Kristi: THE LORD IS

HEALING SOMEBODY WITH

FIBROID TUMORS, AS WELL AS

ALOPECIA.

THE LORD IS HEALING SOMEONE

WITH THAT CONDITION RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: LORD, FOR ALL OF

THOSE IN THE AUDIENCE, LET

THE ANOINTING OF YOUR SPIRIT

COME UPON THEM.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, REVEAL

YOURSELF TO THEM, AND BLESS

THEM IN JESUS' NAME.

THANK YOU, FATHER.

Kristi: THANK YOU,

FATHER.

AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

Kristi: POWER, POWER,

POWER.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

BRING IT ON WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

TISHA SAYS, "IT FEELS LIKE

IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO

HALLOWEEN, THE ONLY SHOWS

ARE HORROR MOVIES.

I KNOW THEY'RE FAKE, SO IS

IT REALLY BAD TO WATCH THESE

SHOWS?"

AFTER THIS SHOW, I THINK YOU

CAN ALREADY ANSWER THAT

QUESTION.

BUT WE'RE GOING TO ANSWER

THAT SO DON'T GO AWAY.

THIS HAND CAME DOWN

TOWARDS ME.

AS IT DID, IT BROUGHT

WARMTH, JUST FLOODING THIS

ROOM, THIS AREA I WAS IN,

WITH THIS BRILLIANT WHITE

LIGHT.

AND THEN I FELT THIS

MOTION -- I WAS BEING PULLED

UPWARDS.

I HEARD THIS VOICE, AND IT

SAID, IT'S NOT YOUR TIME.

Kristi: MAN, I'VE

RIVETED.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

WELL, THIS POWERFUL SHOW

CONTINUES.

IT'S NOW TIME TO BRING IT ON

WITH YOUR QUESTIONS.

TISHA SAYS, "IT SEEMS LIKE

DURING THE WEEKS LEADING UP

TO HALLOWEEN, THE ONLY SHOWS

ON TV ARE HORROR MOVIES.

I KNOW IT'S FAKE, SO IS IT

WATCHING IT REALLY BAD?"

Pat: YES, IT'S FAKE.

BUT YOU BECOME E ENTRANCED

IN IT.

THE DEVIL IS VERY SUBTLE AND

VERY SLY.

WHATEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY

LOVELY, WHATEVER IS PURE,

THINK OF THOSE THINGS.

YOU CAN'T FOCUS ON THE EVIL

OUT THERE.

THE SICKNESS OF SOME OF THE

HOLLYWOOD WRITERS IS SIMPLY

APPALLING.

"THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING

DEAD," "THE CHAINSAW

MASSACRE," YOU DON'T WANT TO

FOCUS YOUR LIFE ON THAT

BECAUSE IT WILL HAUNT YOU.

Kristi: THE BIBLE SAYS

THE EYES ARE THE GATEWAY TO

THE SOUL, YOU BETTER PROTECT

YOUR EYES.

HEATHER SAYS, "I HAD JESUS

IN MY LIFE EARLIER IN LIFE,

BUT I'VE NOT NOW.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW ABOUT

YOUR OWN STATUS, AND I'M NOT

GOING TO SAY.

YOU'VE WALKED AWAY, OR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE IN YOU'RE LIFE,

BUT FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY

AND -- TURN TO THE LORD.

WHY WOULD YOU BE PLAYING

GAMES WITH HIM?

IT'S LIKE SAYING, I'VE GOT

SIX TURNS OF A PISTLE, AND

I'VE GOT ONE BULLET IN AND

I'M GOING TO KEEP CLICKING

THE THING AND HOPE IT'S NOT

GOING TO GO OFF.

PUT THE GUN DOWN AND LIVE

FOR THE LORD.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Kristi: T.H.SAYS, "IS

SATAN IN HELL, OR IS HE

HANGING OUT SOMEWHERE ELSE

IN GOD RETURNS?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS AN

ANGEL IS GOING TO COME AND

BIND THAT OLD DEVIL, SATAN,

AND CAST HIM INTO A LAKE OF

FIRE, WHERE HE WILL STAY,

BUT I THINK IF YOU LOOK AT

JOB, YOU'VE GOT THE DEVIL

WALKING TO AND FRO

THROUGHOUT THE EARTH.

I THINK HE IS LIKE A ROARING

LION.

PETER SAID HE IS LIKE A

ROARING LION, GO ABROAD

THINKING WHO HE CAN DEVOUR.

I THINK SATAN IS VERY ACTIVE

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

ONE TODAY HE WILL BE BOUND

AND PLACED IN A LAKE OF

FIRE, FROM WHICH HE CANNOT

ESCAPE, BUT NOT YET.

Kristi: BUT MORE

IMPORTANTLY, WE HAVE THE

POWER OF JESUS CHRIST TO

STO STOMP ON THAT ENEMY'S

HEAD.

BRAD WRITES IN, "THERE ARE

PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY FOLLOW

JESUS, AND JESUS CHRIST WILL

SAY NO."

Pat: YOU SAW ME DO

MIRACLES AND YOU ATE WITH

ME, THAT ISN'T ENOUGH.

GOING TO CHURCH IS NOT

ENOUGH.

SOMEBODY SAYS YOU CAN'T PUT

A HORSE IN A STABLE AND TURN

HIM INTO A CHEVROLET.

JUST THE FACT THAT YOU SIT

IN CHURCH ISN'T ENOUGH TO

SAVE YOU.

THE QUESTION IS: HAVE YOU

BEEN BORN AGAIN?

HAVE YOU BEEN REDEEMED?

HAVE YOU BEEN WASHED IN THE

BLOOD OF THE LAMB?

HE SAYS THOSE WHO DID THE

WILL OF MY FATHER IN

HEAVEN -- THAT'S WHAT HE'S

TALKING ABOUT.

SO DON'T MAKE MORE OF THAT

THAN IT INTENDED, BUT DON'T

IGNORE IT, EITHER.

Kristi: DANIELLE SAYS,

"WHAT HAPPENED AT THE GREAT

WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT, AND

WHO IS IT FOR, AND WILL

CHRISTIANS BE JUDGED, TOO?"

Pat: AS I READ THE

FIFTH CHAPTER OF JOHN, IT

SAYS HE WHO HEARS THE LORD

AND BELIEVES THOSE WHO SENT

ME, SHALL BELIEVE IN THE

LORD AND IS PASSED FROM

DEATH INTO LIFE.

I THINK WHEN WE ACCEPT

JESUS, WE ARE PASSED FROM

DEATH TO LIFE.

THEY WILL GIVE ACCOUNT FOR

THEIR ACTIONS ON EARTH.

AND THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE,

ACCORDING TO APOSTLE PAUL,

WILL EITHER EXCUSE THEM OR

NOT.

THE BOOKS ARE GOING TO BE

OPEN, AND IT'S ALL WRITTEN

DOWN.

YOU TALK ABOUT A SUPER

COMPUTER, GOD HAS IT ALL

WRITTEN DOWN, EVERYTHING YOU

HAVE EVER DONE ALL YOUR

LIFE.

YOU BETTER HOPE AND PRAY

YOU'RE IN THE LORD, AND THE

LORD'S BLOOD HAS COVERED

EVERYTHING YOU'VE EVER

DONE.

BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOU'VE

EVER DONE IS IN THOSE

BOOKS.

LAST QUESTION.

Kristi: HERMAN WRITES

AND SAYS, "SCRIPTURELY,

WHICH IS TRUE, DO WE GO

DIRECTLY TO HEAVEN OR HEL?"

Pat: JESUS TOLD THE

THIEF ON THE CROSS, THIS DAY

YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

PAUL SAID WHETHER TO DEPART

AND BE WITH THE LORD, OR

REMAIN IN THE FLESH -- SO WE

HAVE SCRIPTURERAL EVIDENCE

WHEN WE DEPART, WE ARE WITH

THE LORD.

I DON'T BELIEVE THE BIBLE

TEACHES SOUL SLEEP, WHICH IS

WHAT YOUR QUESTION IMPLIES.

WE'RE ACTIVELY WITH THE LORD

IN PARADISE.

OTHERS ARE WAITING FOR THE

RESURRECTION OF THE BODY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM FROM 2

CORINTHIANS: "THEREFORE IF

ANYONE IS IN CHRIST, HE IS A

NEW CREATION.

THE OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED

AWAY.

BEHOLD, ALL HAS BECOME

NEW."

BYE-BYE.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.
