Watch the 700 Club Canada for November 9, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO. I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

LAURA-LYNN, YOU KNOW WE GET

OURSELVES INTO SOME FUNNY AREAS.

YES.

SOME STUFF THAT IS --

OKAY, FINALLY.

IT'S NOT FINALLY. I MEAN

THE STUFF

I'M GOING TO SHUT DOWN IF

YOU KEEP GOING.

OKAY, NO, GO AHEAD.

I MEAN RIGHT THERE, IT STOPS.

I'M EVEN

QUESTIONING HOW I SHOULD REALLY

PHRASE THIS --

JUST SAY IT.

AS

SO INTACT BEFORE WE ARE

I WAS PREACHING -- AND I'M NOT

CITY, OR

THE TIME, OR THE YEAR BECAUSE

SAW IT --

BUT I WAS SUPPOSED TO

BE DELIVERING A MESSAGE AND IT

WAS A REAL SERIOUS TIME.

YES

AND, SO I KIND OF EXCUSED MYSELF

AND I WALKED AND I RAN OUT BUT

THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WHEN I GOT

TO THE BATHROOM I BROKE MY

ZIPPER AND I SAID, NO, THIS

CANNOT BE AND I CAME BACK AND

PULPIT THE WHOLE TIME AND I JUST

HAD A LOT OF (INAUDIBLE)

RIGHT. [LAUGHTER]

THAT'S MY STORY. THAT'S IT.

THAT IS A GOOD STORY,

BRIAN. THANK YOU FOR SHARING

PART OF YOUR --

DON'T TELL THAT AGAIN.

YES, NO, ITS BETWEEN US.

ON TODAY'S SHOW

WE WILL SEE THE AMAZING WAY

THAT GOD MOVES WHEN CHRIST

CRISIS HITS IN OUR LIVES

HOPEFULLY NOT LIKE MINE.

NOT LIKE THAT. WHEN SCOTT

SMILEY WAS BLINDED IN COMBAT NO

ONE EXPECTED HIM TO BECOME AN

ACTIVE DUTY OFFICER. YOU WILL

SEE HOW GOD GAVE SCOTT A NEW

LEASE ON LIFE.

BUT FIRST, AN INSIDE LOOK

AT THE ECONOMIC CRISIS HITTING

SPAIN. AND HOW THE MIDDLE CLASS

IS ALL BUT BEING WIPED OUT IN

THAT COUNTRY. YOU KNOW WHAT I

SHOULD'VE TOLD THAT STORY.

NO, I'M GLAD YOU DID.

IN TERRASSA NEAR BARCELONA

SQUATTERS OCCUPY AN EMPTY

APARTMENT BUILDING. THEY HAVE

NOWHERE ELSE TO LIVE SO THEY

LIVING HERE, ILLEGALLY. THE

FATHER OF ANTONIO SAYS IT'S

THEIR ONLY CHOICE. THEY'RE

OCCUPYING THIS GLEAMING NEW

APARTMENT OWNED BY THE SAME

BANK THAT ORDERED THEIR

FAMILY.

THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE

THAT ARE OCCUPYING WHO ARE

KICKING THE DOORS OF THE

BUILDINGS DOWN BECAUSE THEY

DON'T HAVE ANOTHER OPTION.

LIKE THE OTHER SQUATTERS IN

PALOMCO LOST HER JOB AS A

NURSE'S ASSISTANT. THEN SHE

LOST HER HOME.

YOU CAN'T JUST LIVE ON THE

STREET. THERE ARE SO MANY EMPTY

BUILDINGS THAT WILL NEVER HAVE

OCCUPANTS WHETHER THROUGH

SELLING OR RENTING.

SPAIN IS NOT GREECE. IT IS

THE FOURTH LARGEST ECONOMY IN

EUROPE, BUT LIKE GREECE,

SPAIN'S MIDDLE-CLASS IS FALLING

INTO ITS OWN ECONOMIC ABYSS.

LOOKING AT SPAIN YOU SEE A

MODERN WEALTHY PRODUCTIVE

NATION. WHAT YOU DON'T SEE

UNDER THE SURFACE IS THAT SPAIN

FACES ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. THE

EUROPEAN UNION HAS CRAFTED A

BAILOUT TO TRY TO PREVENT IT.

ECONOMIST JUAN RAMON RIA

BUT ALSO THE GOVERNMENT SECTOR

IS ABOUT TO GO INTO BANKRUPTCY.

A COLLAPSED REAL ESTATE

BUBBLE CREATED A BANKING CRISIS

UNITS. THE NUMBER OF BAD LOANS

ONE COLLECTION AGENCY SENDING

OUT DEBT COLLECTORS DRESSED AS

MONKS TO APPEAL TO THE

CONSCIENCES OF DEBTORS IN THIS

HISTORICALLY CATHOLIC NATION.

BUT SPAIN'S PROBLEMS ARE MUCH

DEEPER THAN A BANKING CRISIS.

UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT THE

DEPRESSION LEVEL OF ALMOST 25%

WITH AN ASTOUNDING JOBLESS

53%. THE ECONOMY SHRANK FOR THE

THIRD STRAIGHT QUARTER AND

VITAL CAPITAL IS LEAVING THE

BANKING SECTOR. WITH ONE IN

FOUR UNEMPLOYED MORE AND MORE

FAMILIES ARE LOSING THEIR

HOMES. NEAR BARCELONA GROUP

CALLED PLATFORM OF PEOPLE

AFFECTED BY MORTGAGES IS TRYING

TO PREVENT EVICTIONS AND FORCE

THE BANKS TO ALLOW THE HOMELESS

TO LIVE IN UNSOLD HOUSING.

WHO

CAME TOGETHER TO FIGHT THE

BANKS. THE BANKS HAVE DESTROYED

THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WHO HAVE

BEEN LEFT ON THE STREET,

HOMELESS AND IN DEBT FOR LIFE.

MANY SPANIARDS HAVE SIGNED

MORTGAGES THAT THEY MUST PAY

OFF EVEN AFTER THEY'VE LOST

THEIR HOMES TO FORECLOSURE. IT

MEANS FINANCIAL RUIN FOR MANY

LIKE THIS WOMAN WHO TOLD US SHE

WAS DESPERATE TO SAVE HER HOME.

IF THEY TAKE MY HOUSE I'LL

GO BACK INTO IT IS IF I HAVE TO

PAY THE MORTGAGE FOR THE REST

OF MY LIFE ANYWAY THEN I WILL

STAY IN MY HOUSE AND THEY CAN

THROW ME IN JAIL.

CUTS IN WELFARE HAVE

ALREADY SPARKED SOME GREEK

STYLE STREET BATTLES. THE

ECONOMIST RIO SAYS MUCH OF

PREVENTED IF THE SPANISH

GOVERNMENT HAD NOT GONE ON A

SPENDING BINGE DURING THE BOOM

YEARS NEAR THE TURN OF THE

CENTURY.

IF WE HAD NOT INCREASED

SPENDING FROM 2002 TO 2007,

HAVE A DEFICIT EVEN THOUGH THE

FALLING OF OUR REVENUES AND

EVEN THOUGH THE INCREASE IN

UNEMPLOYMENT.

NOW SPAIN IS PAYING THE

PIPER, OR MORE PRECISELY

SPANISH FAMILIES ARE PAYING.

SHORTLY AFTER WE VISITED MANUEL

BARWAY AND HIS FAMILY NEAR

CASTELLON THEY WERE EVICTED AND

LEFT WITH A MORTGAGE THEY WILL

STILL HAVE TO PAY. THEY'RE

DREAM OF HOME OWNERSHIP LONG

GONE.

WE WERE THINKING THIS WOULD

BE OUR HOUSE FOR LIFE BUT IT'S

NOT. AND THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN

DO. GOD WILL SAY WHAT HAPPENS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS, MADRID.

LAURA LYNN, YOU KNOW

WHEN YOU LOOK AT WAS TAKING

PLACE IN SPAIN PEOPLE LOSING

THEIR HOMES BUT STILL HAVING TO

PAY, YOU KNOW, THEIR MORTGAGE

AND ALSO THEIR DEBT THEY WILL

NEVER GET OUT OF DEBT. WE DON'T

JUST SEE A GOVERNMENT THAT'S IN

CRISIS. WE SEE A FAILED STATE

AND WE ARE HEARING THIS ALSO

IN GREECE AND WE ARE HEARING

THIS ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH

THE EURO AND SOME OF THINGS

THAT ARE GOING ON

AND WHAT ABOUT WHAT'S GOING

ON IN THE UNITED STATES VERY

CLOSE TO HOME AS WELL.

SURE. PRINTING MONEY AS IF

THERE'S REALLY NO RECKONING

TOMORROW. YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHY

WE ARE HERE. BECAUSE WITH ALL

THAT NEWS WE NEED TO FILTER THAT

CAN RECOGNIZE THAT GOD IS IN

CONTROL WHEN MAN SEEMS TO BE

OUT OF CONTROL.

YES.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT

THAT

WONDER

PEOPLE OUT OF THIS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

HE'S GOT PLAN FOR US

AND THATS WHY WE ARE HERE TODAY

TROUBLED.

THAT'S RIGHT.

UP NEXT, TO SEE HOW GOD HAS

HIS LIMITATIONS.

THAT WILL PREPARE YOU

SEEING YOUR BUDDIES WOUNDED. ON

APRIL 6 OF 2005 WE RECEIVED

INTELLIGENCE IN THE MORNING

THAT THERE WAS CAR BOMBS AND

MEN WILLING TO BLOW THEMSELVES

UP. I YELLED AT HIM TO GET OUT

OF HIS CAR AND HE JUST RAISED

HIS HANDS UP AT ME AND LOOKED

AT ME LIKE NOTHING IS WRONG.

THAT'S WHAT I SHOT TWO ROUNDS

IN FRONT OF HIS VEHICLE AND IN

MY WORLD WENT BLACK.

SCOTTY SMILEY'S LEFT EYE.

SHREDDED HIS RIGHT OPTIC NERVE

IN AN INSTANT HIS LIFE

TURNED A CORNER THAT HE NEVER

WOULD HAVE CHOSEN. PRIOR TO

THAT TERRIFYING MOMENT SCOTT

STORY READ LIKE A DREAM. RAISED

IN A LOVING CHRISTIAN HOME, A

WEST POINT GRAD, AN ARMY RANGER

WITH A BRIGHT CAREER AHEAD. HE

WAS ALSO NEWLY MARRIED TO HIS

HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART, TIFFANY.

SCOTTY AND I MET IN JUNIOR

HIGH. I HAD A CRUSH ON HIM AND

LIKED HIM. HE ASKED ME ON A DATE

YEAR, AND THEN DATED THROUGH

WEST POINT AND I WAS LIKE, OKAY,

SCOTTY YOU ARE THE ONE FOR ME.

THERE'S NO ONE ELSE OUT HERE

LIKE YOU.

SCOTTY AND TIFFANY MARRIED

ON December 20TH 2003

IN OCTOBER OF 2004 I WAS

DEPLOYED TO MOSU, IRAQ.

IRAQ?

GIVING THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ

ELECTRICITY, ENSURING THAT

GASOLINE WAS BEING PROVIDED,

EACH AND EVERY DAY BROUGHT

SOMETHING NEW AND I REALLY SAW

NOT ONLY MYSELF BUT IN MY MEN

TESTED THROUGH FIRE AND IT WAS

DIFFICULT TO SEE MY SOLDIERS

GET INJURED. SEVERAL OF MY

SOLDIERS WERE SHOT. SEVERAL OF

MY SOLDIERS WERE INJURED BY

EXPLOSIVES.

THEN IT HAPPENED TO SCOTTY.

I GOT A PHONE CALL AROUND

KNOW, TIFFANY, SCOTTY'S BEEN

HURT AND HE'S BEEN HURT REALLY

BAD. THEN I GOT UP PHONE CALL

FROM THE DOCTOR IN BALAD AND HE

SAID WE REMOVED HIS EYE AND I

AM REALLY SORRY MA'AM BUT WERE

EYE IN BUT WE ARE PROBABLY

COULD'VE RECEIVED.

DOCTORS OPERATED ON SCOTTY

AND SENT HIM HOME TO THE US.

LEARNING TO LIVE AS A BLIND MAN

WAS MORE PAINFUL THAN EITHER HE

OR TIFFANY COULD HAVE IMAGINED.

IT WAS A HARD TIME. I WAS --

I DEFINITELY WAS IN THE BOTTOM

OF MY LIFE. I WAS LOW AS LOW AS

LOW CAN BE. I DIDN'T WANT TO

HOW TO PRAY. I DID NOT KNOW IF

GOD WAS EVEN ALIVE OR EVEN IN

MY LIFE.

HIS FRIEND ASKED HIM, YOU

KNOW, SCOTTY WILL YOU PRAY AND

HE SAID NO, I DON'T EVEN KNOW

WHO GOD IS ANYMORE. THAT

CRUSHED ME. AND THAT NIGHT I

REMEMBER GOING BACK TO MY

EYESIGHT WHICH I HAD BEEN

PRAYING FOR, BUT I WENT BACK

AND PRAYED FOR HIS HEART.

MY MIND WAS STILL IN IRAQ

NOT WITH THEM, THAT I FELT I

WAS NOT DOING MY JOB, THAT I

HAD LEFT THEM, THAT I WAS

UNSUCCESSFUL AND I WAS

AFRAID THAT MY WIFE, YOU KNOW,

WHO HAD MARRIED ME AND SAID TO

DEATH DO YOU PART WAS JUST

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF ME; THAT

I WAS NOW JUST A BURDEN IN HER

LIFE, A BURDEN IN MY FAMILY AND

FRIENDS LIFE AND THAT WAS NOT

SOMETHING THAT I EVER WANTED TO

BE.

THERE WERE DEFINATELY DAYS

THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT I

WAS WALKING BY MYSELF.

SCOTTY WAS NOT WALKING WITH

AND SAY I JUST NEED YOU TO GET

ME THROUGH THE DAY. JUST HELP

ME GET THROUGH THE DAY, GIVE ME

THE GRACE TO BE A GOOD WIFE TO

SCOTTY.

WHAT TURNED THAT AROUND?

WHAT GOT YOU OUT OF THE HOLE?

IT WAS THE PRAYER THAT MY

WIFE CONTINUALLY WAS GIVING FOR

ME. IT WAS HER READING THE

BIBLE TO ME. IT WAS MY BROTHER

QUOTING SCRIPTURES. MY BROTHER

TAKING CARE OF ME.

FIVE YEARS AFTER HIS INJURY

SCOTTY'S LIFE HAS IN SOME WAYS

COME FULL CIRCLE. HE'S NOW BACK

HERE AT WEST POINT NOT AS A

CADET BUT AS A COMMANDER.

SCOTTY'S JOB NOW IS HELPING

OTHER WOUNDED SOLDIERS RECOVER

AND GET THEIR LIVES BACK.

I'M THE COMPANY COMMANDER

OF THE WEST POINT WAR

TRANSITION UNIT. I WAS

INJURED. I WENT THROUGH

DEPRESSION. I WENT THROUGH THE

MENTAL, PHYSICAL ,AND SPIRITUAL

RECOVERY PROCESS AND I THINK

I'VE BEEN GIVEN THIS WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE I

UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE GOING

THROUGH.

NOW CAPTAIN SCOTTY SMILEY HAS

TURNED HIS STORY INTO A BOOK

SHARING HOW HE'S LEARNED TO

TRUST THE LORD. OH, AND IN HIS

SPARE TIME HE'S MANAGED TO EARN

AN MBA, CLIMB MOUNT RAINIER,

SKYDIVE, AND SURF TOO.

GETTING UP AND STANDING ON

THAT BOARD WAS IN EXHILARATING

FEELING AND TO DO SOMETHING ON

MY OWN, OF MY OWN STRENGTH, GAVE

ME THE ABILITY TO KNOW THAT GOD

STILL IS WITH ME AND THAT HE

CAN STILL ALLOW ME TO DO THINGS

THAT I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I

WOULD BE ABLE TO DO.

THE SMILEY'S ARE NOW THE

PROUD PARENTS OF TWO LITTLE

BOYS.

I HAVE TO HELP OUT AND

WHETHER THAT MEANS CLEANING A

DIRTY DIAPER, GIVING MY SON'S

FOOD, GIVING THEM BATHS,

PUTTING THEM TO BED, PLAYING

WITH THEM AT THE PARK, GOD

STILL HAS A PLAN FOR ME AND

BEING A FATHER IS ONE OF THOSE

AWESOME RESPONSIBILITIES THAT

HE'S BLESSED ME WITH.

HE EVEN PLANS TO USE HIS

PROSTHETIC EYES FOR A LITTLE

FUN.

WHEN MY BOYS FRIENDS COME

OVER I CAN JUST PLACE THEM ON

THE COUNTERTOP AND SAY I'M

WATCHING EVEN WHEN I'M NOT IN

THE ROOM.

TELL ME HOW YOUR

LOVE FOR YOU WIFE

HAS DEEP THROUGH ALL THIS.

TIFFANY IS THE MOST AMAZING

PERSON THAT I COULD EVER IMAGINE

GOD BLESSING MY LIFE WITH. HER

ATTITUDE, HER PERSONALITY, HER

PERSEVERANCE, HERE

DETERMINATION TO NOT ONLY HELP

ME, HELP OUR RELATIONSHIP, HAS

JUST BEEN AN AMAZING BLESSING

IN OUR LIVES. I DON'T KNOW IF I

CAN EXPLAIN HOW MUCH I LOVE HER

AND HOW MUCH SHE MEANS TO ME.

I THINK AT FIRST IT

BOTHERED ME MORE THAN IT DOES

NOW. LIKE HE CANT SEE ME AS WE

START TO CHANGE WE STARTED TO

TOGETHER, HE KIND OF JUST

COVERED AND HEALED ALL OF THAT

TO WHERE, LIKE, OUR RELATIONSHIP

IS STRONGER NOW PROBABLY THEN IT

WOULD HAVE BEEN WITH HIS SIGHT ,

WHICH IS CRAZY TO SAY, BUT I

STILL DRESS UP. I STILL WEAR

YOU BETTER COMB YOU HAIR BECAUSE

MY HAIR LOOKS GOOD. THE WARS

THAT I READ IN THE BIBLE

PRIOR TO ALL OF THIS BECAME

PEACE THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING, YOU KNOW; THIS IS

THE HOPE THAT CARRIES YOU

THROUGH. SO IT ALL CAME TO LIFE

FOR ME. THEY'RE STILL TIMES

WHERE YES, WE WISH SCOTTY COULD

SEE, BUT WHAT GOD HAS TAUGHT US

THROUGH HIS WORD AND GOING

THROUGH THIS

I WOULD NOT TRADE THAT FOR

ANYTHING.

A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOK AT THE

EVENTS IN MY LIFE AS A HUGE

TRAGEDY AND I DON'T

NECESSARILY. I THINK GOD HAS

GIVEN ME THE ABILITY TO

UNDERSTAND HIM MORE AND TO

UNDERSTAND HIS PURPOSE THROUGH

MY BLINDNESS. THE FIRST PERSON

THAT I'M GOING TO SEE IS GOING

TO BE JESUS CHRIST REACHING

DOWN TO ME AND I JUST HOPE THAT

HE SAYS, GOOD JOB, GOOD AND

FAITHFUL SERVANT.

WITH IS THE SECOND THING YOU

WANT TO SEE?

OH, MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE.

YOU KNOW THIS IS AN AMAZING

TESTIMONY. ESPECIALLY AS WE'RE

COMING ON TO REMEMBRANCE DAY

WHEN WE THINK ABOUT THE 1.5

MILLION CANADIAN SOLDIERS AND

PERSONNEL WHO SERVED IN THE

THE KOREAN WAR AND ALSO

THE CLASH IN AFGHANISTAN.

SCOTTY HAD EVERYTHING. THIS IS

A REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO AND YOU

HE AND TIFFANY READY TO SET THE

WORLD ON FIRE AND THEN ALL OF A

SUDDEN HE LOSES HIS SITE. AND

HE ALSO LOSES SOMETHING

VALUABLE. HE LOSES -- HE LOSES

HIS BEARINGS AND THAT CAN HAPPEN

TO A LOT OF US. I MEAN YOU KNOW

THE THING I LOVE ABOUT HIS

TESTIMONY IS TIFFANY, WHEN SHE

RECEIVED THOSE PAPERS, REFUSED

TURNED IT AROUND AND NOW HE IS

SURFING AND NOW HE IS CAPTAIN

SCOTTY. THE FIRST BLIND ACTIVE

OFFICER, BUT YOU KNOW HE ALSO

REMINDED OF A MAN NAMED MOSES

BECAUSE HE WAS A DELIVER. HE

WAS A MAN THAT WAS ACTUALLY

MOVING THE PEOPLE OF GOD. ITS

SAID THAT IN THE 11TH CHAPTER

OF NUMBERS, IN THE 14TH VERSE,

HE SAYS, I AM NOT ABLE TO BEAR

ALL THESE PEOPLE ALONE BECAUSE

OF THE BURDEN. IT'S TOO HEAVY

FOR ME. KIND OF LIKE WHAT

SCOTTY SAID. AND THIS IS WHAT

HE SAID: IF YOU TREAT ME LIKE

THIS PLEASE KILL ME NOW. IF I

AND HE SAYS AT THE END,

ON VERSE 15,, DON'T SHOW ME MY

WRETCHEDNESS. WELL, TIFFANY

RECOGNIZED THAT SCOTTY'S

BIGGEST ISSUE WAS NOT GETTING

HIS SIGHT BACK, BUT RECOGNIZING

HIS FAITH NEEDED TO BE

RECALIBRATED AND YOU CAN SEE AS

A RESULT OF THAT. WOW, WHAT A

TESTIMONY OF WHAT GOD CAN DO

ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW, BRIAN,

SOMETIMES WE SEE OURSELVES AS

SMALL AND OUR OWN EYES.

YES.

WE THINK THAT WE HAVE ALL OF

THESE DISABILITIES, YOU KNOW,

WE DEAL A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE

DYSLEXIA SO THEY DISCOUNT

IS A GOD WHO TAKES OUR --

WHATEVER OUR TALENT IS AND HE

GROWS IT --

THAT'S RIGHT.

TO PHENOMENAL PLACES. SO

WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT

CUTS US OFF AT THE KNEES AND

MAKES US FEEL THAT WE ARE

INADEQUATE, THAT'S JUST THE

TIME TO START LOOKING TO YOUR

MIRACLE WORKING GOD TO DO

SOMETHING INCREDIBLE IN YOUR

LIFE BECAUSE NOW EVERYBODY IS

LOOKING AT THIS MAN AND SAYING

THAT'S RIGHT.

YOU KNOW IT HE CAN DO ALL

OF THIS WITHOUT HIS EYES, WHAT

CAN I DO WITH WHAT GOD HAS

GIVEN ME.

YES.

YOU KNOW IT'S A TESTIMONY.

WHAT SCOTTY IS DOING RIGHT

NOW, HE'S HELPING OTHERS THAT

HAVE DISABILITIES SO I BELIEVE

HE'S HELPING US TODAY AS WELL.

HE IS SAYING, WHY ARE YOU

HOLDING ONTO THAT PAST WHEN GOD

HAS A BEAUTIFUL FUTURE FOR YOU

YES.

LET'S DO SOME BUSINESS

WITH GOD BECAUSE SCOTTY IS

TO TAKE

MY EYES OUT AND LET MY KIDS

FRIENDS AND SEE THEM ON THE

TABLE BUT HE ALSO SAID THE

SEE JESUS AND THEN MY WIFE.

WHY DON'T YOU SEE JESUS RIGHT

NOW. PRAY THIS PRAYER. JESUS, I

OPEN MY HEART, I'VE BEEN SO

DISAPPOINTED AND SO ANGRY BUT I

ASK YOU NOW AS AN ACT OF MY

WILL, I AM A SINNER. COME INTO

MY LIFE. LORD, MAKE ME WHAT YOU

WANT TO BE. I KNOW YOU CAN MAKE

SOMETHING OUT OF ME. YOU CAN DO

ANYTHING. DO IT IN ME. YOU DID

IT WITH SCOTTY. I GIVE YOU MY

LIFE AND I ASK YOU NOW IN

JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER WITH BRIAN WOULD YOU

CALL WHEN 1-855 759-0700.

OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY.

YOU KNOW LOOKING BACK I SEE

THE DELIBERATE HAND OF GOD

OPENING EVERY DOOR THAT OPENED

AND SOMETIMES SHUTTING MANY IN

FRONT OF ME. I REMEMBER ASKING

WHY HE WOULD SHUT THE VERY

DOORS THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE

THE KEY TO UNLOCKING MY

CALLING. MY PASTOR ONCE SAID OF

A SITUATION THAT HE WAS GOING

THROUGH THAT HE FELT LIKE GOD

WAS REJECTING HIM WHEN IN FACT

LATER HE REALIZED THAT GOD WAS

PROTECTING HIM. ROMANS 11:2

SAYS SOMETHING AMAZING. IT SAYS

NO, GOD HAS NOT REJECTED AND

DISOWNED HIS PEOPLE WHOSE

DESTINY HE HAS MARKED OUT AND

APPOINTED AND FOREKNOWN FROM

THE BEGINNING. GOD HAS MARKED

OUT YOUR DESTINY. HE ORDAINED

IT SINCE YOU WERE IN YOUR

MOTHER'S WOMB. GOD HAS GOT

THESE SCHEMATICS, THE

ARCHITECTURE, AND THE DESIGN ON

YOUR LIFE TO MAKE AND IT

INCREDIBLE. WHEN YOU GO THROUGH

THE DESERT EXPERIENCE IT MIGHT

SEEM LIKE HE'S UNAWARE OF WHAT

YOU'RE GOING THROUGH. EVERY

DOOR THAT YOU THINK MIGHT LEAD

YOU OUT SEEMS BARRED

SHUT. BUT THEN SUDDENLY

ON CERTAIN UNEXPECTED DAYS A

SWIFT TWIST OF DIVINE FATE WILL

REVEAL REDEMPTION, RESTORATION,

AND A VINDICATION SO

MAGNIFICENT THAT IT COULD ONLY

BE THE HAND OF GOD INTERVENING

ON YOUR BEHALF. A PIECE OF THE

PUZZLE IS PLACED SO

STRATEGICALLY BY GOD THAT IT

UNVEILS A MASTERFUL PICTURE

THAT YOU DID NOT SEE BEING

FORMED. IN AN UNEXPECTED MOMENT

YOU WILL STAND BACK SHOCKED AT

HIS WORK, STAGGERED AT HIS

POWER, AND THE CREATIVE FORCE

WHICH RESIDES IN JUST ONE WORD

FROM HIS LIPS. BUT UNTIL GOD

UNLOCKS THAT DOOR DON'T TRY TO

CLIMB IN A WINDOW. THATS

CALLED BREAK AND ENTER. PSALMS

37:7 SAYS BE STILL AND REST IN

THE LORD. WAIT FOR HIM. WAIT

FRET NOT YOURSELF BECAUSE OF

HIM WHO PROSPERS IN HIS WAY.

BECAUSE OF THE MAN WHO BRINGS

WICKED DEVICES TO PASS. THERE

IS A TEMPTATION WHEN WE ARE

FACING A MOMENTARY CLOSED DOOR

AND NOTHING IS WORKING OUT FOR

US TO LOOK AT OTHERS AND TO SEE

THAT THEY SEEM TO BE DOING OKAY.

THEY'RE PROSPERING REAL WELL

AND GOD KEEPS OPENING EVERY

DOOR IN FRONT OF THEM AND YOU

MIGHT EVEN KNOW THAT THEY HAVE

SECRETS IN THEIR CLOSETS AND

YOU WONDER WHY ON EARTH WOULD

AT THIS MOMENT WHEN YOU NEED

TO KEEP YOUR EYES ON JESUS AND

NOT MAN. YOU SEE EPHESIANS 6:10,

IT SAYS IN CONCLUSION BE STRONG

YOUR UNION WITH HIM. DRAW YOUR

STRENGTH FROM HIM. THAT

STRENGTH WHICH IS BOUNDLESS,

HIS BOUNDLESS MIGHT PROVIDES.

IT IS A MYSTERY THAT OUR PLIGHT

AT TIMES SEEMS GRIEVOUS AND YET

WITHIN THIS VERY ADVERSITY IS

BORN THE CHARACTER THAT MUST BE

PRESENT TO WALK DOWN YOUR

PROVIDENTIAL ROAD AND PURPOSE.

GOD KNOWS WHO AND WHAT YOU WILL

BECOME. HE SIMPLY HAS TO GET

YOU READY TO HOLD THE WEIGHT OF

THE GLORY THAT HE LONGS TO

BESTOW. TRUST IN HIM WITH EVERY

DETAIL UNTIL HE SEES THIS

POSTURE HE CANNOT TRUST YOU

WITH THE ENORMITY OF THE CALL

THAT RESIDES WITHIN YOU. IT

WILL COST US OUR EGO, OUR

PRIDE, OUR SELF WILL AND OUR

STUBBORNNESS AND IS WELL WORTH

THE PRICE BECAUSE ONE OF THESE

DAYS YOUR DOOR WILL OPEN.

YOU KNOW THE REALITY THAT

LAURA-LYNN IS TALKING ABOUT. GOD

ENTRUSTS

THOSE THAT TRUST. AND

WHATEVER YOUR ADVERSITY IS

THE GREATER THE ADVERSITY THE

GREATER THE REWARD. THERE'S

SOMETHING GREAT ON THE OTHER

SIDE. YOU PROBABLY NEED JUST

SOMEONE TO COME ALONGSIDE YOU

AND PRAY WITH YOU. THE NUMBER

IS ON THE SCREEN

1-855-759-0700. LET'S SOMEONE

ENCOURAGE YOU TODAY AND TELL

THEM, I'VE GOT A DREAM. AH, PRAY

LAURA-LYNN MEETS JAMES AND

TALKS ABOUT WHAT YOU BELIEVE,

CANADA.

JAMES, I KNOW YOU'RE DOWN

HERE. YOU'RE STRUGGLING WITH

WHAT BEEN GOING ON?

I'M TERMINALLY ILL WITH

CANCER AND MY WIFE HEARD IT AND

MARRIAGE. SO I UNDERSTOOD THAT

AS SHE DOESN'T LOVE ANYTHING.

SHE DOESN'T KNOW HOW.

A PEDOPHILE. SHE SAID SIX

MONTHS AGO SHE WAS GOING HOME

TO BE WITH HER FATHER BACK TO

HIS HOUSE AND I SAID, WELL, YOUR

YEARS. HE'LL LET NEVER LET ME

LIVE IN HIS HOUSE. SHE SAID NO

I JUST MEAN ME. I'LL BE IN MY

FATHER'S HOUSE WHEN HE DIES.

TWO DAYS LATER I WENT TO THE

HOUSE TO TALK TO HER BECAUSE I

HEARD FROM ONE OF MY SONS THAT

SHE IS NOT COMING BACK. I GOT

ARRESTED AT GUN POINT FOR

SOMETHING I NEVER DID. ONE OF

MY CHILDREN WERE PRESENT. I'M

FIGHTING THE BRITISH COLUMBIA

GOVERNMENT, BUT --

JAMES, HAVE YOU EVER HAD A

CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS?

THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIP, I HAD

AT THE END OF A SYRINGE. I WOKE

UP IN THE MORGUE.

YOU WOKE UP IN THE MORGUE.

CORRECT.

YOU HAD DIED.

WHAT HAPPENED?

YOU THE KEYS OF THE LIFE AND

AND I HEARD A YOUNG BOY PRAYING.

THAT WAS YOUR BOY PRAYING

FOR YOU.

YOUR BOY HAS REQUESTED THAT I

RETURN YOU.

WOW.

AGO. HE'S NOW TWENTY-SEVEN.

WOW. THAT'S A GREAT

JAMES.

OKAY.

LET ME PRAY FOR YOUR

SITUATION. FATHER, I JUST

PRAY IN JESUS NAME, LORD,

IS HURTING HIM WITH HIS WIFE. I

PRAY LORD THAT YOU WOULD

INTERVENE IN THESE REAL

SITUATIONS THAT CAUSE PEOPLE A

LOT OF PAIN. FATHER, YOU LOVE

YOUR KIDS, YOU LOVE US NO

MATTER WHAT WE ARE GOING

THROUGH. YOU -- FATHER, YOU SEE

EVERYTHING WE FACE. SO I PRAY

BY THE POWER AND IN THE NAME OF

JESUS THAT YOU WOULD ABSOLUTELY

FILL JAMES WITH YOUR LOVE RIGHT

NOW, THAT YOU WOULD ENCOMPASS

HIM AND HOLD HIM CLOSE TO YOU,

O GOD, AND CARRY HIM TO THIS

TIME IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, JAMES.
