IT WAS ALMOST LIKE I

WAS STARRING IN AN EPISODE

OF THE TWILIGHT ZONE.

Lee: BLINDSIDED BY

BAD NEWS.

ONE PATIENT'S DIAGNOSIS.

I SAID HOW LARGE IS

LARGE, AND HE SAID

GRAPEFRUIT SIZE.

IT WAS CRUSHING THIS MAJOR

ARTERY.

Lee: AND HIS FIGHT

FOR LIFE.

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE

THE FEELING.

¶¶¶

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

I'M PLEASED TO REPORT ON

THIS DAY AFTER THE

REPUBLIC STILL STANDS, AND

WE STILL HAVE A NATION.

Terry: WE STILL HAVE

A NATION.

Pat: THE CARS ARE

STILL ON THE ROAD, THE

STOCK MARKET IS STILL

WORKING, AND PEOPLE CAN

STILL BUY GROCERIES IN THE

GROCERY MARKET.

Terry: SOME PEOPLE.

THE PEOPLE IN THE EAST --

Pat: YES, THERE IS A

STORM COMING TO THE EAST.

IT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE

RACE IN HISTORY.

EACH SIDE SPENT AT LEAST

$1 BILLION ON TELEVISION

COMMERCIALS.

AND WHEN IT IS OVER, GUESS

WHAT?

NOTHING IS CHANGED.

THE SAME CONTROL OF THE

HOUSE IS IN THE

REPUBLICANS' HANDS, AND

THE CONTROL OF THE SENATE

IN THE DEMOCRATS' HANDS,

AND THE CONTROL OF THE

WHITE HOUSE IS STILL IN

THE HANDS OF BARACK OBAMA.

AND WE'VE GOT SOME IN

SIGHTS AS TO HOW HE DID

IT.

Terry: WE HAVE TWO

REPORTS FROM CBN NEWS ON

THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

WE'RE GOING TO START WITH

JENNIFER WISHON WITH THE

OBAMA CAMPAIGN IN CHICAGO.

Reporter: WHEN

AMERICANS WOKE UP ON

ELECTION MORNING, THEY HAD

NO IDEA WHICH SIDE WOULD

END UP CELEBRATING.

DESPITE A WEAK ECONOMY.

AND VOCAL CRITICS OF HIS

POLICIES BOTH AT HOME AND

ABROAD, BARACK OBAMA WILL

SERVE AN HISTORIC SECOND

TERM AS PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

President Obama:

TONIGHT, IN THIS ELECTION,

YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,

REMINDED US THAT WHILE OUR

ROAD HAS BEEN HARD, WHILE

OUR JOURNEY HAS BEEN LONG,

WE HAVE PICKED OURSELVES

UP.

WE HAVE FOUGHT OUR WAY

BACK.

AND WE KNOW IN OUR HEARTS

THAT FOR THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA, THE BEST IS

YET TO COME.

[APPLAUSE AND CHEERS]

HE IS SO PASSIONATE.

AND THIS PASSION GOES TO

OTHER PEOPLE AND OTHER

COUNTRIES.

WE'RE GOING TO WORK

TOGETHER.

President Obama: WE

ARE, AND FOREVER WILL BE,

THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA, AND TOGETHER,

WITH YOUR HELP AND GOD'S

GRACE, WE WILL CONTINUE

OUR JOURNEY FORWARD AND

REMIND THE WORLD JUST WHY

IT IS THAT WE LIVE IN THE

GREATEST NATION ON EARTH!

THANK YOU, AMERICA!

[APPLAUSE AND CHEERS]

THIS IS MY FIRST TIME

COMING TO ANY KIND OF

CAMPAIGN CELEBRATION LIKE

THIS, AND I'M JUST HAPPY

FOR THE NATION.

I'M HAPPY FOR, YOU KNOW,

OUR PRESIDENT.

I'M JUST LOOKING FORWARD

TO THESE NEXT FOUR YEARS.

Reporter: RIGHT AWAY

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL HAVE

TO DO SOMETHING HE DIDN'T

DO SO WELL DURING HIS

FIRST TERM, WORK WITH A

REPUBLICCAN-CONTROLLED

HOUSE.

IF THE PRESIDENT HOPES TO

REUNITE A DEEPLY DIVIDED

NATION.

REPORTING FROM

PRESIDENT-ELECT BARACK

OBAMA'S VICTORY PARTY IN

CHICAGO, JENNIFER WISHON,

CBN NEWS.

David: THIS IS DAVID

BRODY AT ROMNEY

HEADQUARTERS.

THEY WERE HOPING TO GO OUT

WITH A BANG, INSTEAD THEY

WENT OUT WITH A WHIMPER.

MITT ROMNEY COMING ON

STAGE TO THANK SUPPORTERS

AND CALL FOR UNITY.

AT A TIME LIKE THIS, WE

CAN'T RISK POLITICAL

BICKERING AND BIPARTISAN.

Reporter: THEY WERE

HOPING FOR A CELEBRATION,

AND INSTEAD IT WAS HUGS

AND TEARS.

IT IS TIME TO COME

TOGETHER AS A COUNTRY AND

START WORKING FOR THE

POSITIVE THINGS THE

PRESIDENT SAYS HE WANTS TO

DO.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO

SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA

AND HOPE HE MAKES GOOD

CHOICES THE NEXT FOUR

YEARS.

IF NOT, THAT SOMEBODY

BETTER COMES IN TO TAKE

CARE OF OUR COUNTRY.

Reporter: MITT ROMNEY

GOT CLOSER THAN JOHN

MCCAIN DID FOUR YEARS AGO,

BUT CLEARLY THE ANTI-OBAMA

VOTE WAS JUST NOT ENOUGH.

AND THERE WILL BE

QUESTIONS AS TO WHETHER OR

NOT MITT ROMNEY WAS REALLY

THE RIGHT CANDIDATE ALL

LONG.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN

BOSTON HEADQUARTERS.

Terry: WHAT DO YOU

THINK HAPPENED HERE?

Pat: WELL, FIRST OF

ALL, THE DEMOCRATS DID --

TOOK A PAGE FROM THEIR

PlayBook, IF YOU CAN'T

RUN ON YOUR RECORD, ATTACK

YOUR OPPONENT, AND SHOW HE

IS WORSE THAN YOU ARE.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT

THEY DID.

THEY STARTED LAST SPRING,

HAMMERING AT MITT ROMNEY.

HE WAS A POLITOCRAT.

HE HAD EXPORTED JOBS TO

CHINA.

HE WAS OUT OF TOUCH.

HE WAS ONE OF THE 1%.

AND IT WENT ON AND ON AND

ON.

AND THE ROMNEY PEOPLE

PLAYED ROPE-A-DOPE.

THEY DIDN'T ANSWER OF IT.

THEY LET IT HANG.

Terry: WHAT DO YOU

THINK WAS THE THINKING ON

THAT?

Pat: THEY WOULD HAVE

THE BIG WAR CHEST FOR THE

LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.

AND, YOU KNOW, THEY LET

THE REST OF THE RACE GO.

THE DEMOCRATS DID THE SAME

THING TO BOB DOLE A FEW

YEARS AGO.

THEY DEFINED HIM, BEAT HIM

UP, AND BY THE TIME OF THE

ELECTION, HE WAS FINISHED.

IT IS THE SAME THING HERE.

ROMNEY WAS LOOKED UPON AS

SOMEBODY WHO IS GOING TO

RAISE EVERYBODY'S TAXES.

HE IS GOING TO HAVE

$5 TRILLION IN WHATEVER IT

WAS TAX CUTS.

IT WAS ALL MADE UP.

Terry: RATHER THAN

THE CONDITIONS THAT HAVE

BEEN OF CONCERN TO PEOPLE,

BEING A CATALYST FOR

CHANGE, THEY REALLY ALMOST

IGNITED A FEAR IN PEOPLE

AND THEY WERE AFRAID TO

MOVE.

Pat: EXACTLY.

AND THE OTHER THINGS THAT

IS SO IMPORTANT IS ROMNEY

DIDN'T CONNECT WITH THE

HISPANICS.

THE HISPANICS ARE THE

LARGEST GROWING MINORITY

IN THE UNITED STATES.

BEFORE LONG, THEY MAY

BECOME THE MAJORITY.

AND YOU LOOK AT TEXAS, NEW

MEXICO, ARIZONA,

CALIFORNIA, AND THEN OF

COURSE FLORIDA AND NEW

YORK CITY AND ALL THESE

PLACES.

THEY'RE LOADED WITH

HISPANICS.

WE'VE GOT 12 MILLION

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN THE

COUNTRY, AND NOBODY HAS

DONE ANYTHING ABOUT

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

AND THAT'S --

Terry: THAT ALMOST

WASN'T AN ISSUE.

Pat: WELL, IT SHOULD

HAVE BEEN AN ISSUE.

AND THEN UNDERLYING ALL OF

THIS, THERE WAS A BARAGE

OF RADIO SAYING THAT

ROMNEY WAS AGAINST A

WOMAN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE AN

ABORTION, THAT HE WAS

GOING TO DENY ALL OF THIS

AND DENY THAT.

THEY FILLED THE AIRWAVES

WITH LIES, ONE AFTER THE

OTHER, AND HAMMERED HIM.

NO ANSWER.

WELL, SO YOU HAVE AN

ELECTION AND PEOPLE -- I

WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING

THAT I THINK WILL

ENCOURAGE YOU.

I WAS READING TODAY IN

PALM 118, AND HERE IS

SOMETHING I THINK YOU

OUGHT TO MARK UP.

IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN

THE LORD THAN TO PUT

CONFIDENCE IN MAN.

IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN

THE LORD THAN TO PUT

CONFIDENCE IN PRINCES.

I THINK OUR CONFIDENCE

NEEDS TO BE IN ALMIGHTY

GOD, NO WHOEVER IS IN

OFFICE.

POLITICIANS WILL

DISAPPOINT YOU.

THEY'LL FAIL, AND THEY'RE

FALLIBLE HUMAN BEINGS, SO

KEEP THAT IN MIND.

EARLIER THIS YEAR, IT

LOOKED LIKE THE

REPUBLICANS COULD TAKE

BACK THE SENATE, AT LEAST

THAT'S WHAT OUR GUY, JOHN

WAGGE TOLD US.

BY CHARLENE ISRAEL SAID

THAT ISN'T EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

TOOK A BAD BRUISING IN

SENATE RACES ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

THE G.O.P. NEEDED TO GAIN

FOUR SEATS TO TAKE

CONTROL.

INSTEAD, THEY LOST SEATS.

EVANGELICALS DID THEIR

PARTS AND SHOWED UP BIG AT

THE POLLS.

EVANGELICALS WERE THE

LARGER SHARE OF THE

ELECTORATE THAN THEY'VE

EVER BEEN.

Reporter: BUT THERE

WAS A STRONG SHOWING BY

MINORITY AND WOMEN VOTERS,

INCLUDING A LARGE NUMBER

OF HISPANICS.

YOU CAN'T HAVE

HISPANICS ALONG THE I-4

CORRIDOR WALK IN BY THE

TENS OF THOUSANDS, IN

OSIOLA COUNTY, IN

HILLSBURROUGH COUNTY.

THE PRESIDENT WON 44% OF

THE HISPANIC VOTE.

MITT ROMNEY WAS WINNING

33%.

Reporter: THAT WAS

KEY IN THE ELECTION AND

DEMOCRATS HOLDING ON TO

THE SENATE.

WHAT SURPRISES ME IS

THE ABILITY OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS TO

TURN OUT A HUGE VOTE.

I DIDN'T THINK PRESIDENT

OBAMA, BEING SUCH AN

UNSUCCESSFUL PRESIDENT,

AND THE DEMOCRATS, SEEMING

TO LACK ENTHUSIASM, WOULD

BE ABLE TO DO THIS.

BUT THEY DID.

Reporter: JIM CAIN

DEFEATED HIS OPPONENT.

IN THE CLOSELY-WATCHED

MISSOURI RACE, TODD AKIN

LOST THE CHANCE TO OUST

CLAIRE MCCASKILL.

A VERBAL GAP SEVERELY

DAMAGED HIS CANDIDACY, AND

REPUBLICAN LEADERS CALLED

ON HIM TO ABANDON THE

RACE.

SCOTT BROWN FELL TO

ELIZABETH WARREN.

BROWN SHOCKED THE NATION

IN 2010 WHEN HE WON THE

SEAT HELD BY DEMOCRAT TED

KENNEDY FOR 47 YEARS.

WARREN IS THE FIRST WOMAN

TO HOLD A SENATE SEAT IN

MASSACHUSETTS.

THIS VICTORY BELONGS TO

YOU.

Reporter: ALL

TOGETHER, DEMOCRATS WON

EIGHT OF THE 11 TOSS-UP

RACES IN THE SENATE.

MEANWHILE, TEA PARTY

CANDIDATES DID NOT DO WELL

IN THIS ELECTION.

HOUSE REPUBLICAN ALLEN

WEST WAS DEFEATED, BUT

PARTY FAVORITE MICHELE

BACHMANN DID WIN HER BID

TO CONTINUE TO REPRESENT

MINNESOTA'S SIXTH

CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT,

BEATING OUT JIM GRAVE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: HERE TO TALK

ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN

THAT CONGRESSIONAL

ELECTION, IS CBN NEWS

POLITICAL EDITOR JOHN

WAGGE.

JOHN, YOU MISSED IT?

I MISSED IT, PAT.

Pat: WHAT HAPPENED?

WAS IT WISHFUL THINKING?

I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS.

I WAS OUT ON THE LIMB WITH

A LOT OF OTHER PUNDITS,

AND MAYBE WE BROKE THE

LIMB OFF TOGETHER.

BUT UNDERESTIMATING THE

DEMOCRATS' GROUND GAIN AND

OVERESTIMATING HOW

DISPERIODED THEY --

DISSPIRITED THEY MIGHT

HAVE BEEN.

THE WHOLE IDEA OF CLASS

WARFARE WORKED.

AS YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT

ROMNEY BEING CAPITAL AND A

PLUTOCRAT, AND IT WORKED

ALL THE WAY DOWN THE

SENATE SEAT.

A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT

GROUPS RESPONDED TO THAT,

SINGLE WOMEN, MINORITIES,

AND THE CLASSIC DEMOCRATIC

BASE, AND THAT WAS ENOUGH

TO GET THE GROUND GAME

GOING IN A BIG WAY.

Pat: IS THAT

SOMETHING YOU'VE LEARNED

FROM THE EXIT POLLS, OR IS

IT SOMETHING MORE?

THAT, AND ONE OF THE

KEY FIGURES FROM THE EXIT

POLLS, BY 53% TO 38%

MARGIN, PEOPLE THOUGHT

BUSH WAS MORE TO BLAME FOR

THE ECONOMIC WOES FOUR

YEARS AFTER HE WAS

PRESIDENT THAN OBAMA WAS.

THEY JUST DIDN'T TAG

PRESIDENT OBAMA WITH THE

ECONOMIC TROUBLES THAT WE

HAVE, EVEN THOUGH HE ADDED

$5 TRILLION TO THE DEBT.

SO THERE WERE A LOT OF

ELEMENTS AT IT.

Pat: HE IS ONE

BRILLIANT ORITOR, AND HE

IS A SNOW-JOB ARTIST.

HE REALLY IS GOOD.

AND PEOPLE BOUGHT THE LIE.

HE IS.

HE IS.

PAT, YOU WERE TALKING

EARLIER ABOUT THE HISPANIC

VOTE.

I'M WONDERING WHAT YOU

THINK ABOUT HOW

REPUBLICANS NEED TO

ADDRESS THAT?

DO THEY NEED TO HAVE AN

HISPANIC TO REPRESENT THE

PARTY?

OR CAN IT BE IN OTHER

WAYS?

Pat: YOU'VE GOT MARCO

RUBIO THE RISING STAR, AND

NICKY HAYLEY, VERY

ATTRACTIVE GOVERNORS, WHO

MIGHT BECOME THE FACE OF

THE MINORITIES.

AND TED CRUZ ELECTED

LAST NIGHT.

Pat: IN THE SENATE.

AND HE COULD RISE UP TO

THAT WAY.

BUT THERE IS NO QUESTION

REPUBLICANS HAVE EMBRACED

THESE PEOPLE IN TERMS OF

THEIR CANDIDATES, BUT THE

RHETORIC HAS BEEN SO

ANTI-IMMIGRANT.

AND REMEMBER THE DEBATES

WITH RICK PERRY.

HE WAS ATTACKED FOR GIVING

SOME SCHOLARSHIP AID TO

THE CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

HE SAID, WHAT CAN I DO?

I'VE GOT THESE PEOPLE AND

I WANT TO HELP THEM.

YES.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THEY

CAN'T COMPROMISE THEIR

MESSAGE CONCERNING

AMNESTY.

IT HAS TO BE DONE WITH

COMPASSION IN SOME WAY,

SHAPE, OR FORM.

Pat: IT HAS GOT TO

COMPROMISE.

THIS I'M RIGID, BLAH,

BLAH, BLAH.

JAY SECOLO IS WITH US.

ARE YOU GOING TO BE THE

POWER OF STREN --

STRENGTH?

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I'M GOING TO HAVE A

MEETING THIS MORNING, PAT,

WITH OUR OFFICES AROUND

THE COUNTRY.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

LOOKING AT SPECIFICALLY

MOVES BY THE PRESIDENT,

WHICH I THINK YOU WILL SEE

COMING FORWARD.

I MENTIONED THIS LAST

NIGHT ON THE FORECAST.

THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

COMING FROM THE PRESIDENT.

HE WILL DO BY EXECUTIVE

VIA WHAT HE CAN'T GET DONE

BY THE HOUSE.

YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF

POLICIES AND REGULATIONS

PUT FORWARD THAT ARE VERY

DAMAGING TO FREEDOM AND

LIBERTY, AND WE'RE GOING

TO BE OPPOSING THOSE.

BUT THE REPUBLICANS IN THE

SENATE MAY SHOW SOME

BACKBONE.

THEY BETTER BE TOUGH ON

ISSUES LIKE JUDICIAL

LEGISLATION.

THE COURT OF APPEALS --

THOSE COULD VERY WELL GO

THE OTHER WAY NOW.

I THINK WE HAVE TO BE

COGNIZANT OF THE PLAYING

FIELD WE'RE NOW ON.

WHAT YOU JUST SAID ABOUT

IMMIGRATION, PAT, WE HAVE

GOT TO FIGURE OUT A WAY,

YES, TO SECURE OR BORDERS,

BUT FIGURE OUT A WAY TO

WORK THROUGH THIS

IMMIGRATION ISSUE.

I THINK IT REALLY HURT THE

PARTY IN FLORIDA, THE

REPUBLICANS, AND THE END

RESULT IS THIS COUNTRY

NEEDS TO GET THIS ISSUE

BEHIND THEM.

THAT IS ONE LEGISLATIVE

AGENDA ITEM I SUSPECT THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS GOING

TO PUT FORWARD.

IT WAS MARCO RUBIO WHO HAD

THE PLAN READY TO LAUNCH,

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA TRIED

TO UPSTAGE HIM ON IT.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,

I THINK IT NEEDS TO BE

WORKED THROUGH.

Pat: CHUCK SCHUMER

AND OTHER DEMOCRATS ON THE

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE WERE

BRUTAL ON OUTSTANDING

PICKS FOR CIRCUIT COURT --

BRUTAL ON THEM, AND THEY

GOT AWAY WITH IT.

YUP.

Pat: ARE THERE ANY

NUMBERS OF THE REPUBLICAN

MINORITY IN THE JUDICIARY

WHO HAVE GOT INTESTINAL

FORTITUDE --

BACKBONE?

Pat: YES.

SENATOR JOHN CORDON,

OUR FRIEND FROM TEXAS,

NEEDS TO SHOW SOME

SIGNIFICANT LEADERSHIP ON

THAT FRONT.

I THINK WE'RE IN A

DIFFERENT SITUATION.

I THINK THE REPUBLICANS

THOUGHT THEY WOULD HAVE A

SIGNIFICANT LEAD.

JOHN WAGGE MENTIONED TED

CRUZ.

THERE IS A SUPER STAR ON

THE RISE.

I'VE KNOWN TED FOR A LONG

TIME.

HE IS A TREMENDOUS LAWYER,

A TREMENDOUS SUPREME COURT

LAWYER, NOW A UNITED

STATES SENATOR.

HE IS HISPANIC.

HE IS AN EYE WE SHOULD

KEEP OUR EYE ON.

I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED TO

SEE A SENATOR CRUZ PLAYING

A VERY SIGNIFICANT ROLE

FOUR YEARS FROM NOW.

Pat: LAST QUESTION:

WE HAVE WHAT LOOKS LIKE A

TENUOUS CONSERVATIVE

MAJORITY ON A NUMBER OF

ISSUES ON THE SUPREME

COURT.

YEAH.

Pat: WHAT SEATS ARE

UP FOR GRAB?

OR ARE THINGS GOING TO BE

PRETTY MUCH IN STATUS QUO

FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS?

THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS WE'VE GOT SOME JUSTICES

THAT ARE GETTING OLDER,

AND SO MAY NOW WANT TO

RETIRE, AND I THINK YOU

COULD SEE SOME

REPLACEMENTS.

I SENT OUT AN E-MAIL --

ONE OF OUR STAFF SAID AN

E-MAIL SAYING THIS IS

GOING TO MAKE OUR WORK AT

THE SUPREME COURT A LOT

MORE DIFFICULT.

AND THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS THIS, WE'VE BEEN

LITIGATING THESE CASES FOR

25 YEARS.

WE'VE HAD VERY LIBERAL

COURTS, AND WE STILL END

UP OFTENTIMES ON ACLJ

CASES WITH DECISIONS THAT

ARE 9-0 IN OUR FAVOR.

WE CAN GET THE LIBERAL

JUSTICES.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE CAREFUL

WHAT YOU TAKE UP THERE.

DEFENSIVE DENIALS WHEN

YOU'VE WON A CASE.

YOU'VE GOT TO FIGHT IT

OUT.

I THINK WE HAVE ANOTHER

ONE COMING UP IN THE NEXT

TERM.

I'M OPTMISTIC IN A CASE

LIKE THAT WE COULD GET ALL

NINE.

WE'RE GOING TO NOT GIVE

UP.

WE'VE GOT TO FIGHT THE

GOOD FIGHT.

WE'VE GOT TO DEAL WITH THE

FACTS AS THEY ARE.

Pat: I APPRECIATE

THAT.

I CONTINUE TO TRUST IN THE

LORD.

JOHN, KEEP LOOKING AT IT.

WE'VE GOT ANOTHER ELECTION

COMING UP IN TWO YEARS.

ALL TOO SOON.

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU, A

LOT OF US MISSED THIS ONE.

I MUST SAY I MISSED THE

PRESIDENTIAL.

I THOUGHT -- FIRST OF ALL,

I THOUGHT HILLARY CLINTON

WAS GOING TO WIN BEFORE.

I THOUGHT SHE WOULD BEAT

OBAMA.

AND I THOUGHT OBAMA WHAT

LEAD.

HE HAD THE NUMBERS IN

THE POLLS FOR 10 STRAIGHT

DAYS BEFORE THE HURRICANE

HIT.

Pat: WE'LL SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE

REPUBLIC STILL STANDS, AND

GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE

AND FOR THE PEOPLE SHALL

NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH.

AND WE'RE DOING IT.

VOTERS ALSO MADE HISTORY

LAST NIGHT ON OTHER

ISSUES, INCLUDING

MARRIAGE.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS, LEE?

Lee: PAT, VOTERS IN

MAINE AND MARYLAND BECAME

THE FIRST TO LEGALIZE

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BY A

BALLOT MEASURE.

AND VOTERS IN MINNESOTA

HAVE REJECTED A

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

THAT WOULD BAN IT.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: FOUR STATES

CONSIDERED THE ISSUE OF

MARRIAGE ON TUESDAY.

THE QUESTION: WOULD THEY

CONTINUE A 32-STATE STREAK

IN WHICH VOTERS HAVE

CONSISTENTLY UPHELD

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE?

THE ANSWER: NO.

IN MARYLAND, VOTERS

APPROVED A NEW LAW

LEGALIZING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE.

IN MAINE, VOTERS REVERSED

THEMSELVES.

JUST THREE YEARS AGO, THEY

VOTED AGAINST GAY

MARRIAGE.

LAST NIGHT THEY APPROVED

IT.

IN MINNESOTA, VOTERS

REJECTED A CONSTITUTIONAL

AMENDMENT BANNING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, BUT A STATE LAW

OUTLAWING IT REMAINS.

WASHINGTON STATE VOTERS

ALSO CONSIDERED A MEASURE

TO LEGALIZE IT, BUT

RESULTS ARE STILL PENDING.

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE

SUPPORTERS ACKNOWLEDGED

THE BATTLE WAS UPHILL ALL

THE WAY.

THESE ARE DEEP BLUE

STATES, WASHINGTON,

MINNESOTA, MARYLAND, AND

MAINE, AND THE SUPPORTERS

OF MARRIAGE WERE OUTSPENT

ROUGHLY 8-1.

Reporter: MAINE AND

MARYLAND BECOME THE

SEVENTH AND EIGHTH STATES

TO LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE.

THIS MORNING, TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE ACTIVIST TERRY

JACKSON SAYS THE G.O.P.

SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE.

THE G.O.P. BASICALLY

SAID YOU TRADITIONAL

CHURCH FOLKS, YOU'RE ON

YOUR OWN.

WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT IN

OUR CAMPAIGN PLATFORM, BUT

WE'RE NOT GOING TO FUND

YOU, WE'RE NOT GOING TO

SUPPORT YOU.

AND I THINK THEY LOST THE

WHOLE THING BECAUSE OF

THAT LACK OF ENGAGEMENT

AND RESPONSE ON THESE

ISSUES.

Reporter: THE OUTCOME

OF THESE VOTES COULD

INFLUENCE THE SUPERIOR

COURT.

IT WILL SOON DECIDE

WHETHER TO TAKE UP CASES

THAT CHALLENGE THE FEDERAL

DEFINITION OF MARRIAGE,

AND MANY BELIEVE THAT THE

COURT IS WATCHING, TRYING

TO DETERMINE WHETHER

PUBLIC ATTITUDES ON THIS

ISSUE HAVE SHIFTED

SIGNIFICANTLY.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Lee: AND THERE ARE

SOME OTHER BALLOT

INITIATIVES TO REPORT.

WASHINGTON AND COLORADO

BECAME THE FIRST STATES TO

LEGALIZE THE RECREATIONAL

USE OF MARIJUANA.

AND MASSACHUSETTS VOTERS

HAVE APPROVED ITS USE FOR

MEDICAL PURPOSES.

BUT VOTERS IN THAT STATE

APPEAR TO HAVE REJECTED A

VOTE TO LEGALIZE

PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED SUICIDE

FOR THE TERMINALLY ILL.

FOLKS IN NEW YORK AND NEW

JERSEY BRACING FOR MORE

ROUGH WEATHER.

A NOR'EASTER IS SET TO HIT

THE AREA DEVASTATED BY

SUPERSTORM SANDY.

THEY'RE BEING TOLD TO

EVACUATE IN CASE OF MORE

FLOODING.

BUT MANY ARE STAYING IN

PLACE.

THEY DON'T WANT LOOTERS TO

STEAL WHAT LITTLE THEY

HAVE LEFT.

WEATHER EXPERTS SAY THIS

SYSTEM IS WEAKER THAN

ANTICIPATED, BUT IT WILL

STILL CAUSE HIGH WINDS AND

POSSIBLE FLOODING.

REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM

TURNS 94 TODAY.

HIS DAUGHTER CREDITS HIS

LONG LIFE TO PRAYER.

SHE HOPES PEOPLE CONTINUE

TO PRAY FOR HER FATHER.

PREPARATIONS UNDER WAY FOR

A BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELICAL

BROADCAST WHEN HE TURNS

95

HE IS CELEBRATING HIS

BIRTHDAY TODAY WITH ABOUT

20 FAMILY MEMBERS AT HIS

HOME IN NORTH CAROLINA.

HE ASKED FOR A BIRTHDAY

MENU OF HOTDOGS AND APPLE

PIE.

I KNOW YOU JOIN US ALL

HERE AT CBN AT WISHING

BILLY GRAHAM A HAPPY

94th BIRTHDAY.

Pat: I LOVE HIM, I

ADMIRE HIM, AND I

APPRECIATE HIM MORE THAN

ANYBODY CAN IMAGINE.

BUT HE HAS HAD TERRIBLE

HEALTH.

I WAS WITH HIM RIGHT AFTER

THE BERLIN WALL FELL.

WE WERE OVER THERE

TOGETHER.

AND HE WAS TELLING ME SOME

OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE

HAPPENED, BROKEN BONES AND

ALL SORTS OF ILLNESS AND

FALLS THAT HE'S HAD.

AND IT'S JUST -- I

REMEMBER DURING THE NEW

YORK CRUSADE, IT WAS KIND

OF LIKE THIS WAS MY LAST.

THAT WAS IN THE LATE

1950s, AND HE IS STILL

GOING STRONG.

Terry: HE HAS

WEATHERED ALL OF THOSE

CHALLENGES AND REMAINS A

VOICE IN OUR CULTURE.

THAT IS WONDERFUL.

Pat: PRAY FOR HIM,

LOVE HIM, AND WE SALUTE A

DEAR FRIEND AND A CHAMPION

OF THE FAITH.

Terry: INDEED.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

UP NEXT, A YOUNG MAN WITH

CHEST PAIN GETS A BIG

SHOCK FROM HIS DOCTOR.

GETTING THAT NEWS AFTER

HAVING NEVER BEEN SICK

BEFORE IN MY LIFE, IT WAS

ALMOST LIKE I WAS STARRING

IN AN EPISODE OF TWILIGHT

ZONE.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MAN BEAT CANCER AGAINST

ALL ODDS.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TOING

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: DANIEL HAD A

TUMOUR IN HIS CHEST THAT

WAS SO LARGE IT WAS

CRUSHING HIS PULMONARY

ARTERY AND SUFFOCATING

HIM.

DOCTORS SAID HE COULD BE

DEAD IN TWO WEEKS OR TWO

MONTHS.

BUT BEFORE THE TUMOR,

DANIEL HAD NEVER BEEN SICK

A DAY IN HIS LIFE.

Reporter: 27-YEAR-OLD

DANIEL MESINA NEVER SAW IT

COMING.

ANY DEVELOPED PAIN IN

MY CHEST AND IT WAS

RADIATING DOWN MY RIGHT

SIDE INTO MY RIGHT ARM.

Reporter: HE DROVE

HIMSELF TO THE EMERGENCY

ROOM AND THE DOCTOR

ORDERED X-RAYS AND C.T.

SCANS.

THE DOCTOR CAME BACK

AND SAID WE FOUND

SOMETHING, AND HE SAID IT

IS A RATHER LARGE IN YOUR

CHEST.

AND I SAID HOW LARGE IS

LARGE?

AND HE SAID IT WAS

GRAPEFRUIT-SIZED.

HE SAID YOU NEED TO GET IT

EVALUATED IMMEDIATELY.

I WENT AND GOT A BIOPSY,

AND WHEN THE DOCTOR CALLED

ME, IT WAS AS HE FEARED,

LYMPHATIC CANCER.

IT WAS SHOCKING.

IT WAS SURREAL.

GETTING THAT NEWS AFTER

HAVING NEVER BEEN SICK

BEFORE IN MY LIFE, IT WAS

ALMOST LIKE I WAS STARRING

IN AN EPISODE OF THE

TWILIGHT ZONE.

IT WAS THAT SURREAL.

Reporter: DANIEL

CALLED HIS GIRLFRIEND,

ZUHANI, WHO WAS A MED

STUDENT.

IT WAS DEFINITELY

SHOCK.

YOU HEAR THE WORD CANCER,

AND YOU AUTOMATICALLY

ASSOCIATE IT WITH DEATH

AND DYING AND END OF LIFE.

HIS TUMOR WAS SO LARGE,

WHEN HE HAD SHOWN ME HIS

P.E.T. SCAN, I LOOKED AT

IT AND I SAID THAT'S YOUR

HEART, AND HE SAID NO,

THAT'S THE TUMOR.

IT WASN'T THE CANCER

THAT WAS THE THREAT.

IT WAS THE ACTUAL PHYSICAL

SIZE THAT WAS CRUSHING THE

ARTERY.

WE WERE FORCED TO GO

THROUGH CHEMO.

THE DOCTORS SAID WE'RE

GOING TO GIVE YOU A FORM

OF CHEMO THAT IS

RELATIVELY A PALLIATIVE

FORM.

WE DON'T EXPECT THAT

YOU'RE GOING TO GET

BETTER, BUT YOU HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING.

THEY WEREN'T SURE IF IT

WAS GOING TO RESPOND, BUT

WITHOUT IT, HE SAID I

WOULD BE DEAD IN A MATTER

OF THREE WEEKS TO THREE

MONTHS.

IT WAS CRUSHING HIS

PULMONARY ARTERY.

WHICH MEANS HIS LUNGS WERE

NOT GETTING BLOOD.

WHICH MEANS THERE WAS NO

OXYGENATED BLOOD GOING

THROUGH HIS BODY.

Reporter: DANIEL

STARTED THE CHEMOTHERAPY.

MY WHOLE BODY WAS IN

PAIN.

I WAS TOO WEAK TO WALK.

YOUR G.I. TRACT AND YOUR

GUMS -- EVERYTHING GETS

SORE.

HE COULDN'T KEEP

ANYTHING DOWN.

HE WAS JUST DRY HEAVING.

MY HEART JUST BROKE FOR

HIM.

I WAS LIKE, GOD, I WILL

TAKE HIS PLACE.

JUST LET ME DO ANYTHING I

CAN TO TAKE HIS SUFFERING

AWAY.

AND THERE WAS NOTHING, YOU

KNOW.

AND YOU TRY TO HAVE FAITH

THAT THERE IS GOING TO BE

GLORY THAT IS GOING TO

COME OUT OF IT, BUT YOU

DON'T IN THAT MOMENT.

YOU JUST DON'T.

SO THOSE WERE SOME DARK

MOMENTS.

Reporter: FRIENDS AND

FAMILY VISITED DANIEL IN

THE HOSPITAL.

I HAD SO MANY PEOPLE

PRAYING FOR ME.

I HAD PEOPLE PROPHESYING

FOR ME SAYING THIS THING

WAS BORN TO DIE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A

TESTIMONY TO THE LORD.

WE WERE JUST PRAYING

FOR HIM, AND YOU JUST FELT

THE WHOLE WEEK LIKE THEY

WERE THERE WITH YOU.

YOU FELT LIKE THERE WERE

ANGELS PRAYING FOR YOU THE

WHOLE TIME.

YOU JUST FELT THEIR

PRESENCE, AND IT WAS

AMAZING.

PEOPLE ANOINTED ME WITH

OIL AND PRAYING OVER ME,

BOTH IN THE HOSPITAL AND

AFTER I GOT OUT.

I REMEMBER THE PASTOR

SAYING YOU NEED TO JUST

CRY OUT TO GOD AND LET HIM

KNOW YOU NEED HIM.

BECAUSE I WAS REALLY

HOLDING EVERYTHING INSIDE.

IT WAS AT THAT POINT, WHEN

MY FRIENDS WERE LAYING

HANDS ON ME IN THE CHURCH,

I JUST GOT DOWN ON MY

KNEES, AND THE FLOODGATES

OPENED.

I WAS CRYING OUT TO GOD

SAYING, GOD, I NEED, I

NEED YOU.

I HAD NEVER DONE THAT

BEFORE.

IT WAS A BIG STEP FOR ME.

Reporter: DANIEL WENT

BACK TO THE HOSPITAL FOR

HIS NEXT TREATMENT.

THE TUMOR HAD GOTTEN

BIGGER, IT WAS CRUSHING MY

PULMONARY ARTERY, AND I

WAS SUFFOCATING.

I REMEMBER BEING IN THE

HOSPITAL BED, LITERALLY

DYING, AND I REMEMBER

LOOKING UP TO GOD AND

SAYING, IF YOU WANT TO

TAKE ME, I'LL GO WITH YOU.

I SAID IF YOU WANT TO HEAL

ME AND LET ME LIVE, I'LL

DO MY BEST TO SHARE WITH

THE WORLD YOUR GOODNESS,

YOUR GRACE, YOUR LOVE,

YOUR MERCY, AND YOUR

POWER.

AND THAT WAS REALLY A

TURNING POINT FOR ME,

LEARNING TO LET GO, AND TO

JUST TRUST THE LORD.

Reporter: DANIEL WENT

IN FOR TESTS AT THE MIDWAY

POINT OF HIS CHEMO.

HALF WAY THROUGH THE

TREATMENTS, WHEN THEY TOOK

THAT SECOND SCAN, WHICH

THEY WERE JUST HOPING THE

TUMOR WOULD BE SMALLER.

AND IT CAME BACK

COMPLETELY NEGATIVE, LIKE,

JUST GONE.

I REMEMBER WALKING OUT OF

THE RADIOLOGY PLACE, JUST

BEFORE CHRISTMAS, I'M

LOOKING UP TO HEAVEN, A

BEAUTIFUL DAY, CRYSTAL

CLEAR SKY, AND TEARS

RUNNING DOWN MY EYES AND

JUST SAYING, THANK YOU,

LORD.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS THE BEST CHRISTMAS

GIFT I EVER HAD.

THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN.

I SAW THAT TUMOR.

IT WAS GIENORMOUS.

IT DOESN'T JUST GO AWAY.

AND THERE WASN'T EVEN SCAR

TISSUE.

USUALLY WHEN TUMORS

RETRACT, THERE IS SCAR

TISSUE LEFT BEHIND AND

THERE WASN'T ANYTHING.

WORDS CAN'T EVEN

DESCRIBE IT.

WALKING ON AIR,HOLDING

THIS PICTURE IN MY HAND OF

A COMPLETELY NORMAL P.E.T.

SCAN, WHEREAS THREE MONTHS

EARLIER I HAD THIS OMINOUS

TUMOR THREATENING MY LIFE.

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE THE

FEELING.

PEOPLE ABLE TO TELL MY

FAMILY AND MY FRIENDS I'M

GOING TO BE OKAY.

IT WAS JUST AMAZING.

Reporter: DANIEL AND

ZAHANI MARRIED IN 2003.

ZAHANI GRADUATED FROM MED

SCHOOL IN 2007.

TODAY SHE IS A PEDIATRIST,

AND DANIEL IS THE PRODUCER

AND HOST OF DIVINE

INTERVENTION, A POPULAR

SHOW ABOUT MODERN DAY

MIRACLES.

IT WAS THE FAITH OF MY

FAMILY AND FRIENDS, WHO

PRAYED FOR ME.

I'M REMINDED ALL OF THE

TIME OF THE STORY IN THE

GOSPEL OF MARK, WHERE THE

FOUR FRIENDS ARE CARRYING

THE PARALYTIC FRIEND TO

JESUS.

THEY HAVE TO GO UP ON THE

ROOF AND LOWER THEM DOWN

BECAUSE OF THE CROWD.

AND IT SAYS WHEN JESUS SAW

THEIR FAITH, HE HEALED THE

PARALYTIC.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER THE

PARALYTIC HAD FAITH OR

NOT, BUT I KNOW HIS

FRIENDS DID.

AND SOMETIMES THAT'S WHAT

YOU NEED.

YOU NEED PEOPLE AROUND YOU

TO GURD YOU UP AND PRAY

FOR YOU AND BRING YOU INTO

THE PRESENCE OF JESUS, AND

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED IN MY

CASE.

Terry: AMAZING STORY.

GOD IS ABLE.

WE LOVE HAVING STORIES

LIKE THAT ON THE AIR THAT

BUILD FAITH, THAT SHOW US

THE POWER OF GOD.

AND WE'VE GOT SOME REPORTS

FOR US RIGHT NOW THAT DO

THE SAME THING.

PAT, THIS IS HELEN WHO

LIVES IN ALBUQUERQUE, NEW

MEXICO, AND SHE HAD

SHOULDER REPLACEMENT

SURGERY AND SHE SUFFERED

FROM CHRONIC NECK PAIN.

THE DOCTOR SAID THE ONLY

THING HE COULD DO WAS

PRESCRIBE PAIN

MEDICATIONS.

SHE RECOMMENDED ADDITIONAL

SURGERY, BUT SHE DIDN'T

WANT MORE SURGERY.

THEN LAST AUGUST, HELEN

WAS WATCHING THIS PROGRAM,

AND PAT, SHE HEARD YOU SAY

WHEN WE WERE PRAYING, PUT

YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, AND BE MADE WHOLE.

SHE PUT HER HAND ON HER

NECK, AND SHE SAID SHE

FELT WARMTH INTO IT, AND

THEN HER NECK,

QUOTE,POPPED AND

IMMEDIATELY THE PAIN LEFT

AND HAS NOT RETURNED.

Pat: YOU KNOW, I

DIDN'T KNOW HELEN.

BUT GOD KNOWS HELEN.

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT HER

NECK, BUT GOD KNEW ABOUT

HER NECK.

IT IS SIMPLY AMAZING THE

POWER THAT IS RELEASED AS

WE PRAY.

IT IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

THIS IS ADINA, WHO LIVED

IN TORONTO, ONTARIO, IN

CANADA.

SHE BEGAN HAVING PAIN IN

HER LOWER BACK AND COULD

NOT BEND OVER WITHOUT

HURTING.

HER DOCTORS WERE UNABLE TO

DETERMINE WHAT WAS WRONG,

AND SHE SAID, HERE IS SOME

ADDITIONAL TESTS YOU CAN

TAKE.

MEANWHILE, ON JULY 27th,

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND SHE WAS

CRYING, AND SHE HEARD

TERRY SAYING YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH THE LOWER

PART OF YOUR SPINE, IT IS

JUST OUT OF ALIGNMENT, BUT

IT CAUSES ALL KINDS OF

DISCOMFORT, SITTING AND

STANDING.

GOD IS CORRECTING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

JUST STRETCH OUT AND

RECEIVE HEALING.

DINA SAID THAT'S ME, AND

IMMEDIATELY THE PAIN WAS

GONE.

SHE WAS ABLE TO BEND AND

MOVE AND HASN'T HAD ANY

PROBLEMS SINCE.

TERRY, GOD IS GOOD.

Terry: HE IS VERY

GOOD.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, TERRY

AND I ARE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS.

WE BELIEVE IN GOD.

GOD IS ALMIGHTY, AND

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

NOW WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

YOU MAY BE SAD BECAUSE OF

THE ELECTION, YOU MAY BE

JUBILANT BECAUSE OF THE

ELECTION, BUT ELECTIONS

COME AND ELECTIONS GO, BUT

GOD IS EVERLASTING.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS.

PLEASE JOIN WITH US.

FATHER, TERRY AND I JOIN

TOGETHER.

IN UNITY, ASKING FOR A

MIRACLE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES.

LORD, DO SOMETHING.

TERRY, GOD JUST GAVE YOU

SOMETHING.

WOULD YOU SHARE IT?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEBODY, YOU HAVE SOME

SORT OF AN BE OCULAR

PROBLEM.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS,

BUT YOU FEEL THIS -- IT'S

NOT SHARP PAIN, BUT IT IS

AN ACHY PAIN IN YOUR EYES.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

YOUR VISION IS GOING TO BE

RESTORED TO NORMAL.

PUT YOUR HANDS ON YOUR

EYES AND BE MADE WHOLE IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

Pat: THERE IS A

MAN -- THE NAME MARK COMES

TO ME -- I WON'T WORRY

ABOUT THAT.

BUT YOU'RE WEARING A NECK

BRACE.

RIGHT NOW IF YOU REACH OUT

AND TOUCH THAT, YOU'LL

FEEL LIKE ELECTRICITY

GOING THROUGH IT.

GOD HAS JUST HEALED YOU OF

THE PROBLEM THAT IS THERE.

AND CAUSED THE SPINE TO

KUM INTO ALIGNMENT AND THE

NECK, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR

DIGESTION AND YOUR

STOMACH, AND YOU HAVE BEEN

TOLD THERE IS NOTHING MORE

THAT CAN BE DONE.

IT TRULY AFFECTS YOUR

LIFE, YOUR ABILITY TO EAT

AND YOUR NUTRITION.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL A

WARMTH IN THE CENTER OF

YOUR BODY AS GOD JUST

TOUCHES AND HEALS THAT

CONDITION.

Pat: SOMEBODY, YOUR

LIPS ARE SWELLED.

THERE IS SOME KIND OF AN

ALLERGY.

THE LORD HAS JUST BEEN

COMING INTO YOU RIGHT NOW,

AND YOU'RE BEING HEALED.

THE SWELLING IN YOUR LIPS

AND MOUTH AND FACE IS

GOING DOWN IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TERRY?

THANK YOU, LORD.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE HAD SOME BODY

SWELLING JUST IN GENERAL,

IN YOUR LIMBS, AND WITH NO

EXPLANATION.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE

THAT DISCOMFORT.

LET THAT FEAR GO RIGHT

NOW.

GOD IS IN CONTROL AND YOUR

BODY IS BEING TOUCHED BY

HIM.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

WE PRAY FOR THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE, WHATEVER THEIR

NEED IS, REACH OUT AND

TOUCH THEM AND HEAL THEM

AND SET THEM FREE.

LORD, FOR THIS NATION, WE

PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS.

THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.

THE LEADERS ARE IN PLACE.

WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD GIVE

THEM WISDOM, THAT THEY

MIGHT FULFILL YOUR DESIRE

IN JESUS' NAME.

YOU ARE ALL WISE AND ALL

KNOWING, AND WE COMMIT

THIS DAY TO YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: AND AMEN.

AND THE QUOTE FROM THE

BIBLE, THIS IS THE DAY

THE LORD HAS MADE, AND WE

REJOICE IN IT.

Terry: AND THE

HOLIDAYS ARE CLOSE.

DESIGNER MAL ANDERSON IS

GOING TO GIVE US TWO FOR

ONE IDEAS FOR BOTH

THANKSGIVING AND

CHRISTMAS.

THAT'S ALL COMING UP A

LITTLE LATER.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

THE 700 CLUB.

FRANCE'S CABINET HAS

APPROVED A BILL LEGALIZING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN THAT

COUNTRY.

THE ISSUE HAS BECOME

CONTROVERSIAL IN FRANCE.

PRESIDENT FRANCOIS

HOLLANDE MADE IT A

CORNERSTONE OF HIS

CAMPAIGN.

AT THE TIME, THE MAJORITY

OF THE FRENCH PUBLIC

ATTENDED TO BACK THE IDEA.

BUT SUPPORT LATELY HAS

FALLEN OFF AFTER VOCAL

OPPOSITION FROM RELIGIOUS

LEADERS.

A CONSERVATIVE CENTER

CALLED THE MEASURE THE END

OF THE FAMILY AND AN

ENORMOUS DANGER TO FRANCE.

OPPOSITION LAWMAKERS AND

HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS ARE

CRITICIZING ANGELA MERKEL.

SHE SAID THAT CHRISTIANITY

IS, QUOTE,THE MOST

PERSECUTED RELIGION

WORLDWIDE.

HER CRITICS SAY RANKING

FAITH TO HOW PERSECUTED

THEY ARE IS POINTLESS.

THEY SAY SOME MUSLIMS,

JEWS, AND OTHERS ALSO FACE

PERSECUTION.

MERKEL MADE HER COMMENTS

AT THE MEETING OF A

PROTESTANT CHURCH.

SHE ALSO SPOKE OUT AGAINST

STRICT SEPARATION OF

CHURCH AND STATE AND SAID

EUROPE WAS BUILT ON

CHRISTIAN FOUNDATIONS.

MERKEL IS THE DAUGHTER OF

A PASTOR.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

THE 700 CLUB AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME TO

THIS DAY AFTER THE

ELECTION CELEBRATION OR

WAKE, AS THE CASE MAY BE.

AFTER THE WOMAN IN OUR

NEXT STORY WAS SUPER

NATURALLY HEALED, SHE HAD

THE BOLDNESS TO PRAY FOR

ANOTHER MIRACLE.

AND THE ANSWER TO THAT

PRAYER LED TO A BLESSING

FOR HER ENTIRE TOWN.

Terry: EVERY MORNING,

MANU AND HER HUSBAND

WALKED TWO MILES IN THE

HILLS OF NORTHWEST INDIA

TO GET WATER FOR THEIR

FAMILY.

WE USED THE BUCKET TO

GET WATER FROM AN OPEN

WELL.

MY HUSBAND WOULD GO DOWN

AND FILL IT, AND I WOULD

PULL IT UP.

SO LITTLE BY LITTLE WE

FILLED THE POT.

Terry: BUT THEN MANU

SUDDENLY DEVELOPED PAINFUL

SWELLING IN HER LEGS AND

HANDS.

I WOULD CRY.

BECAUSE I COULDN'T HELP MY

HUSBAND GET WATER OR DO

ANYTHING ELSE.

Terry: THEY WENT TO

BLACK MAGIC PRACTITIONERS

AND DOCTORS, BUT MANU

DIDN'T GET ANY BETTER.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND WERE

HINDUS, BUT WHEN A LOCAL

PASTOR VISITED THEIR HOME

AND OFFERED TO PRAY FOR

HER, THEY LET HIM.

HE PRAYED IN THE NAME

OF JESUS, AND VERY SOON

THE SWELLING DISAPPEARED.

I STARTED TO BELIEVE IN

JESUS CHRIST.

Terry: MANU

RECOVERED, BUT SHE STILL

WORRIED ABOUT THE LONG

WALKS TO GET WATER.

SO SHE AND HER HUSBAND

DECIDED TO SEE IF JESUS

WOULD ANSWER ANOTHER

PRAYER.

I ASKED JESUS TO GIVE

US A WELL CLOSE TO OUR

HOME.

Terry: SOON A CBN

LIVING WATERS TEAM CAME TO

THEIR VILLAGE AND DRILLED

A WELL.

I AM SO HAPPY.

NOW I CAN EASILY GET WATER

FOR MY FAMILY.

Terry: MANU AND HER

HUSBAND GAVE THEIR LIVES

TO CHRIST AND WERE

BAPTIZED.

I BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS

LORD.

HE MADE ME WELL AND

STRENGTHENED MY FAITH.

WE PRAYED AND HE GAVE US

WATER.

NOW I HAVE BECOME A

DAUGHTER OF JESUS CHRIST,

AND I WILL FOLLOW HIM ALL

OF THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.

Pat: FOLKS, THAT'S

WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH

YOUR 700 CLUB MEMBERSHIP

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

AMERICA IS IMPORTANT, WE

JUST HAD AN ELECTION, BUT

THE TRUTH IS 90% OF OUR

BROADCAST ACTIVITIES

OVERSEAS, OVER IN INDIA,

CHINA, THAILAND, THE

UKRAINE, YOU NAME IT -- 58

DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.

WE CARE ABOUT PEOPLE.

AND WE APPRECIATE SO MUCH

WHAT YOU DO TO HELP US

HELP THEM.

AND AS WE HELP THEM, GOD

WILL BLESS US.

I THINK ONE OF THE REASONS

THAT GOD HAS SPARED

AMERICA AS LONG AS HE HAS

IS BECAUSE OF THE

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN

PEOPLE -- WHOEVER THEY

ARE -- WHO ARE REACHING

OUT AROUND THE WORLD AND

SHOWING COMPASSION.

AND GOD BLESSES US AS WE

HELP OTHERS.

SOMETHING IS COMING TO

YOU.

I MENTIONED IT BEFORE.

WHEN YOU GET IT, PLEASE

OPEN IT UP AND FILL OUT

THE CARD AND SEND IT IN.

AND INSIDE IS THIS

FANTASTIC RECIPE FOR THIS

INCREDIBLE MINESTRONE.

Terry: IT'S ON MY

GROCERY LIST AS WE SPEAK.

Pat: IT'S ON YOUR

GROCERY LIST.

YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE IT.

Terry: WELL, SURE.

I'M WAITING FOR MY CROWD

TO ASSEMBLE.

Pat: THIS IS COMING

IN THE MAIL, AND THERE IS

A PLEDGE.

YOU CAN DO SOMETHING.

FILL IT OUT AND END IT IN.

OKAY!

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'VE

GOT SOMETHING GREAT FOR

YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU

HOW TO SET A LAVISH TABLE

FOR THANKSGIVING.

AND IT'S ALSO LOW COST.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

STAY TUNED.

Terry: WELL,

THANKSGIVING, BELIEVE IT

OR NOT, IS ONLY ABOUT TWO

WEEKS AWAY, AND CHRISTMAS

JUST A LITTLE OVER SIX

WEEKS.

SO TO GET THE HOLIDAYS

GOING IN SOME REAL STYLE,

DESIGNER MAL ANDERSON

STOPPED BY OUR STUDIOS AND

SHOWED ME THE LATEST

TRENDS FOR DECORATING

THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS

TABLES.

AND THE BEST PART IS, YOU

GET TWO FOR ONE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MAL

ANDERSON IS A LIFESTYLE

EXPERT AND DESIGNER

EXTRAORDINAIRE.

SHE HAS BEEN CALLED A

CROSS BETWEEN DR. PHIL AND

MARTHA STEWART.

MAL BELIEVES THAT SIMPLE

AND POSITIVE CHANGES IN

YOUR HOME WILL HAVE

POSITIVE RESULTS IN YOUR

LIFE, TOO.

SHE SHARED HER EASY

MONEY-SAVING TIPS ON MANY

POPULAR TV SHOWS, IN

MAGAZINES, AND IN HER

BOOK, CHANGE YOUR HOME,

CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

NOW MAL WANTS TO SHOW YOU

HOW TO MAKE YOUR HOLIDAYS

BEAUTIFUL AND EFFORTLESS.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO THE 700 CLUB, MAL

ANDERSON.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO HAVE

YOU HERE.

THANK YOU, TERRY.

I'M SO HAPPY TO BE HERE.

Terry: THESE TABLES

ARE PHENOMENAL, AND YOU

SAID IT WAS OPRAH WHO

FIRST GAVE YOU YOUR

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE YOUR

GIFT WITH SO MANY.

SHE DID.

I WAS SITTING AT HOME

WATCHING HER SHOW, AND

THEY TALKED ABOUT FINDING

YOUR DESTINY.

IT TURNED OUT IN ALL OF

THESE BOXES, I HAD ALL OF

THESE BEFORE AND AFTER

PICTURES.

AND I THOUGHT, NO ONE EVER

SAID TO ME I SHOULD BE A

DESIGNER, BUT I AM REALLY

GOOD, IF I SAY SO MYSELF.

Terry: THERE YOU GO.

THAT'S HOW IT STARTED.

Terry: WHY DO THEY

CALL YOU THE COMBINATION

OF DR. PHIL AND MARTHA

STEWART.

THOSE SEEM LIGHT YEARS

APART.

BECAUSE I REALLY

BELIEVE YOUR HOME REFLECTS

YOUR FAMILY AND WHO YOU

ARE.

I TRY TO BRING FAMILY BACK

TO THE TABLE AND GET US

AROUND IT INSTEAD OF JUST

EATING FAST FOOD AND

PULLING OUT PAPER PLATES.

I WANT YOU TO GET OUT YOUR

CHINA.

Terry: I AM

CONVICTED.

YOU SEE CHINA ON BOTH

TABLES.

PEOPLE NEED TO USE THE

GOOD CHINA, DUST IT OFF

AND USE IT.

BECAUSE YOUR FAMILY IS

YOUR MOST IMPORTANT

GUESTS.

THAT'S WHAT YOU TELL YOUR

HUSBAND, WHEN YOU PULL OUT

YOUR CHINA AND YOU SET THE

TABLE THAT IS BEAUTIFUL

LIKE THIS, YOU'RE TELLING

HIM HE IS SPECIAL AND HE

IS IMPORTANT, AND YOUR

CHILDREN LEARN ABOUT

EXAMPLE.

Terry: THESE TABLES

ARE SO BEAUTIFUL.

YOU SAY THERE ARE FIVE

MUST-HAVES THAT WE NEED TO

MAKE ALL OF THIS MAGIC

HAPPEN.

IN ANY DESIGN.

PAINT, LIGHTING, MUSIC,

FLOWERS AND FABRIC.

HERE WITH THE PAINT, WE

WOULD BE TALKING ABOUT

COLOR, CORRECT?

Terry: RIGHT.

ONE OF THE HOTTEST FALL

TRENDS FOR DECORATING IS

HOT COLOR.

BRIGHT ORANGE.

WE BROUGHT IN THIS

BEAUTIFUL, ENERGETIC

ORANGE.

COLORS HAVE ENERGY.

SAME CHINA ON BOTH.

SAME TABLECLOTH, SAME

CRYSTAL, SAME SILVERWARE.

COST-EFFECTIVE.

WE ADDED THE COLORFUL

CHARGER, AND THE BEAUTIFUL

COLORFUL FLOWERS, AND

ISN'T THIS WONDERFUL.

THAT'S A REAL PUMPKIN.

Terry: I LOVE THAT.

YES.

Terry: NO WAY.

LIKE A LITTLE MINI

PUMPKIN.

YES.

AND WHAT IS GREAT YOU

DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO GUESS

WHERE TO SIT.

DON'T YOU FEEL SPECIAL

WHEN YOU SEE YOUR NAME.

IT SAYS WE INTENDED YOU TO

BE HERE.

THIS IS JUST TO INSPIRE

YOU.

YOU CAN DO SEVERAL EASY

VERSIONS OF THAT.

Terry: THAT IS

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

HERE, THE SAME THING.

ALL OF THE SAME THINGS.

WE CHANGED IT WITH THE

CHARGER.

MUSIC IS ONE OF MY MOST

IMPORTANT MUST-HAVES

BECAUSE YOU HAVE CHANGE

THE ATMOSPHERE OF A ROOM

WITH THE MUSIC.

I'M REALLY EXCITED WITH

THE MUSIC YOU'RE HEARING.

THIS IS CALLED WELCOME

IN FROM MY UNCLE PHIL

PEGGY.

Terry: THAT IS

FABULOUS.

HE IS WONDERFUL.

Terry: THIS IS LIKE A

LITTLE GIFT AT EACH PLACE.

IT IS.

IT IS WELCOMING PEOPLE TO

THE TABLE.

I TOOK A NAPKIN AND SET IT

IN THERE.

AND WE WANT TO GIVE PEOPLE

A GIFT WHEN THEY LEAVE.

IT IS VERY INEXPENSIVE.

IT IS A BULB YOU CAN BUY

AT ANY STORE.

WE PUT 700 CLUB.

Terry: BUT LOOK AT

YOUR PRESENTATION OF THIS.

YOU KNOW WHAT,

PRESENTATION IS

EVERYTHING.

IT DOESN'T COST A LOT OF

MONEY, BUT IT MEANS YOU

LOVE PEOPLE.

THAT IS JUST A LITTLE BIRD

THAT YOU CLIP ON.

IT IS SO SIMPLE.

I WANT YOU TO NOTICE, NAME

TAGS SO IMPORTANT.

THIS IS AN ORNAMENT, AND

ALL WE DID WAS TAKE SOME

GLITTER AND A BEAUTIFUL

LITTLE PEN AND IT MEANS

YOUR SPECIAL.

Terry: AND WHAT ABOUT

YOUR CENTER PIECES.

THEY ARE FABULOUS LOOKING.

THIS, AGAIN, IS TO

INSPIRE PEOPLE AT HOME.

WE ALL NEED TO SEE

SOMETHING TO LOVE.

SIMPLE FLOWERS CUT OFF AND

PUT IN A WAYSIS.

YOU SOAK IT, PUT IT IN

THERE, AND POP THE FLOWERS

RIGHT IN THERE.

Terry: AND YOU'VE

USED THE SAME CONTAINERS.

YOU CAN USE THESE ANY

TIME.

AND FABRIC, TABLECLOTH,

FABRIC, AND THE

LIGHTING -- THERE IS

NOTHING LIKE CANDLE LIGHT.

Terry: YOU'VE HET ALL

FIVE OF THESE THINGS.

YOU CAN EASILY SEE BY JUST

HAVING SOME OF THIS ON

HAND, IT IS A ONE-TIME

PURCHASE, BUT IT IS A

FOREVER THING.

I WANT YOU TO DO THIS

NOT JUST ON THANKSGIVING

AND CHRISTMAS.

I WANT YOU TO DO THIS ALL

THE TIME.

Terry: WELL, IT'S

GREAT TO KNOW, ISN'T IT,

THAT YOU CAN MAKE THAT

KIND OF A DIFFERENCE.

IT'S REASONABLE.

YOU'RE REUSING A LOT OF

THAT.

YOU CAN KEEP MUCH OF IT

FROM YEAR TO YEAR ONCE YOU

EMBARK ON THE JOURNEY OF

REALLY MAKING THIS THE

ENVIRONMENT THAT YOU EAT

AND SPECIAL FOR YOUR

FAMILY.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU

CAN FIND ALL MAL

ANDERSON'S IDEAS ON OUR

WEBSITE.

SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO

REMEMBER WHAT YOU JUST

SAW.

YOU CAN GO FIND IT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG

ON TO cbn.com.

Pat: SHE IS SO

LOVELY.

Terry: SHE REALLY IS.

Pat: THEY SOUND SO

EASY.

FOR THE REST OF US -- I'M

ALL THUMBS --

Terry: BUT SHE USE

SIMPLE THINGS SO WE CAN

ALL DO IT.

E-MAILS, THIS IS KAREN WHO

SAYS, MY MOTHER ASKED ME

WHAT IT MEANS WHEN WE SEE

OUR DECEASED LOVED ONES IN

OUR DREAMS.

HER FATHER PASSED AWAY

WHEN SHE WAS 15, AND SHE

DREAMS OF THINGS SUCH AS

HIM SAYING HE IS PROUD OF

HER.

WHERE DO THE IMAGES COME

FROM?

US?

THE DECEASED PERSON?

OR GOD?

Pat: I THINK IT COMES

FROM US.

OUR MINDS ARE HUGE MEMORY

BANKS.

NOT ONLY WHAT WE'VE

ACTUALLY SEEN BUT WHAT WE

IMAGINE.

IT IS SWEET THAT YOU'RE

THINKING ABOUT YOUR

FATHER, AND YOUR FATHER

SAYS HE IS PROUD OF YOU.

THAT IS A DESIRE OF YOUR

HEART.

THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT.

AS A LITTLE GIRL, YOU WANT

YOUR DADDY TO SAY HE IS

PROUD OF YOU.

IT'S SWEET.

Terry: HELEN SAYS,

MY GRANDDAUGHTER ASKED ME

WHAT ARE THEIR SEVEN YEARS

IN THE TRIBULATION

PERIOD?

GOD IS KIND OF INTO

NUMBERS.

Pat: GOD SPEAKS TO US

THROUGH NUMBERS, FIVE IS

THE NUMBER OF GRACE, SEVEN

IS THE NUMBER OF

PERFECTION, OR EIGHT IS.

YOU GO DOWN THE LIST.

THREE IS THE NUMBER OF THE

TRINITY.

FOUR IS THE NUMBER OF

EARTH.

YOU PUT THREE AND FOUR

TOGETHER, YOU'VE GOT SEVEN

OR YOU'VE GOT 12.

YOU'VE GOT 40 YEARS,

THAT'S 10 TIMES FOUR, THE

EARTH -- I MEAN, THEY'RE

ALL THERE.

SO GOD CLEARLY SPEAKS

THROUGH THOSE NUMBERS AND

THEY HAVE SIGNIFICANCE.

Terry: THIS IS PAM

WHO SAYS, MY COUSIN HAS

STAGE THREE LIVER CANCER

AND HAS BEEN WAITING FOR A

LIVER FOR THE LAST TWO

YEARS.

HOW DO YOU PRAYER FOR

SOMEONE TO GET A LIVER

WHEN ANOTHER PERSON HAS TO

DIE IN ORDER FOR THE OTHER

PERSON TO GET IT.

I NEED HELP ABOUT THIS.

Pat: THEY'RE GOING TO

DIE ANYHOW.

A DOCTOR FRIEND USED TO

SAY MOTORCYCLE RIDER --

THEY CALLED THEM SPARE

PARTS.

I KNOW THAT'S BRUTAL, BUT

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR

SOMEBODY TO DIE.

SOMEBODY IS GOING TO DIE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO PRAY FOR

THEM TO DIE.

THEY WILL DIE.

Terry: PRAY FOR GOD

TO PROVIDE IT.

JESS SAYS RECENTLY IN A

BIBLE STUDY WE'VE BEEN

TALKING ABOUT SPIRITUAL

GIFTS.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A

SPIRITUAL GIFT AND HOW DO

I FIND OUT IF I HAVE ONE?

Pat: READ 1

CORINTHIANS 12.

THEY'RE THE ENABLEMENT.

THE WORD IN GREEK IS

CHARISMATA.

THEY ARE SPECIFIC.

YOU CAN READ MORE THAN I

COULD TELL YOU RIGHT NOW.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

TOMORROW ON THE 700

CLUB, LISTEN, WOMEN AND

PORNOGRAPHY, AND WHY THIS

BOOK CALLED 50 SHADES OF

GREY IS SO POPULAR.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM 1

CORINTHIANS: THANKS BE TO

GOD WHO GIVES US THE

VICTORY.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.
