HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

LAURA-LYNN WHEN YOU LOOK AT

MODERN-DAY HEROES WHO INSPIRES

YOU?

YOU KNOW, BRIAN, MY

MODERN-DAY HERO TODAY IS MY VERD

FRIEND SANDY. SHE IS A FOOT

DOCTOR. YOU KNOW THAT JESUS

SERVED MANY OF HIS FOLLOWERS.

HE ACTUALLY WASHED THEIR FEET.

SHE TOUCHES PEOPLE'S FEET, BRIA,

AND WHEN WE WENT TO AFRICA

TOGETHER FOR THREE HOURS SHE

MINISTERED TO THE WOMEN IN

UGANDA WITH THEIR FEET AND SHE

IS MY HEROINE. TODAY SHE'S

RUNNING AROUND DELIVERING

TICKETS FOR AN EVENT THAT I'M

DOING AND I LOVE HER. THANK YOU

SANDY. SHE'S A GOOD WOMAN.

VERY COOL.

YES. LEBANESE IMMIGRANT ELI I

(SP?)

NEVER DREAMED THAT HE'D BE

LIVING IN MILWAUKEE AND HE

CERTAINLY NEVER IMAGINED THAT

HE BE RUNNING A MARATHON.

YOU'LL SEE HOW ONE CATASTROPHIC

EVENT HAS PAVED THE WAY FOR ELI

TO INSPIRE THOUSANDS OF RUNNERS.

IS SO COOL. NOW TO FATIMA

SHAMBOUSA (SP?) OF ETHIOPIA. ONE

DAY STANDS OUT MORE THAN ANY

OTHER DAY THAT SHE DIED. NOW ITE

DAY THAT SHE CAME BACK TO LIFE

AND YOU ARE GOING HEAR THIS INCE

STORY A LITTLE BIT LATER IN THEA

WOMAN THAT CAME BACK TO LIFE.

WE'LL TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT

ONE OF MY FAVORITE INTERVIEWS FE

PAST YEAR AS PART OF MY SERIES

CALLED, WHAT YOU BELIEVE,

CANADA, BUT FIRST ELI HASVANI LS

LEG BUT GAINS SO MUCH MORE.

LEBANESE-AMERICAN ELI HESPANI

NEVER DREAMED HE WOULD LIVE IN

MILWAUKEE AND HE NEVER

IMAGINED HE'D BE RUNNING A

MARATHON.

MY MAIN INSPIRATION

IS JESUS. THAT'S

WHY I'M DOING THIS BECAUSE OF

HIM. AND BECAUSE HE CHANGED MY

LIFE.

HIS LIFE JOURNEY BEGAN HALF D

AWAY IN LEBANON.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. ITS

MENTIONED IN THE BIBLE MANY TIM.

AND THE CEDAR OF LEBANON IS

GORGEOUS AND THIS COUNTRY IS

REALLY IN MY HEART.

RAISED IN A CHRISTIAN CULTURE

GREW UP PEACEFULLY WITH HIS

MUSLIM NEIGHBORS.

THESE

PEOPLE, THEIR CHILDREN

WERE MY BEST FRIENDS. WE JUST

LOVE TO BE TOGETHER AND HAVE FU.

SOME WERE PALESTINIAN, NOT

LEBANESE.

PALESTINIANS CAME TO OUR

COUNTRY AS REFUGEES. WE HOSTED

THEM. WE LIKED THEM. WE SIT

BESIDE THEM AND NOW THEY TURNED

AGAINST US, AND THEY WANT TO KIL

US.

CIVIL WAR BROKE OUT IN 1975

WHEN THE PALESTINIAN LIBERATION

ORGANIZATION AND ITS MUSLIM

BACKERS ATTACK ISRAEL AND CHRISN

VILLAGES IN LEBANON. ELI

JOINED THE ISRAELI SUPPORTED

SLA, SOUTH LEBANON ARMY.

I WANT TO PROTECT MY

FAMILY. I WANT TO PROTECT MY

IDENTITY AS A LEBANESE OR AS A

CHRISTIAN AT THAT TIME, AND THE

PEOPLE OF MY COUNTRY.

> THE LEBANESE CIVIL WAR TOOKS

TOLL, SURROUNDING HIM WITH

DEATH AND DESTRUCTION.

YOU DON'T KNOW IF YOU WILL

DIE TODAY OR TOMORROW. SO I

START HATING MYSELF NOT ONLY

MY ENEMY, SO I START

DRINKING TO FORGET. I DIDN'T

CARE ABOUT LIFE. I DIDN'T CARE

ABOUT IF I WILL DIE OR LIVE.

ELI'S THINKING CHANGED

QUICKLY AFTER HIS COMMANDER

ORDERED HIM TO DISARM ENEMY

ROCKETS. THAT'S WHEN A LANDMINE

EXPLODED BENEATH HIS FEET.

I START THINKING I'M GOING

TO DIE. HOW CAN I FACE GOD

RIGHT NOW. HE'S GOING TO JUDGE

ME. I WAS SO AFRAID. JESUS, IF

YOU ARE ALIVE, SAVE ME. I DON'T

WANT TO GO TO HELL.

ELI'S LIFE WAS SPARED.

HE LOST HIS LEFT LEG BUT

GAINED SALVATION. CALLED TO

MINISTRY HE EVENTUALLY JOINED

YOUTH WITH A MISSION AND LATER

ATTENDED THE ARAB BAPTIST

SEMINARY AND IT WAS RIGHT HERE N

BEIRUT THAT ELI STUDIED AND

HE FIRST PREACHED THAT HE LEARND

IT WAS NO LONGER SAFE FOR HIM

TO REMAIN IN LEBANON. SO HE PACD

UP HIS FAMILY AND HE LEFT THE

COUNTRY OF HIS BIRTH AND HEADED

FOR AMERICA. HE NOW SERVES AS

NATIONS PASTOR AT MILWAUKEE'S

EASTBROOK CHURCH HOME TO

CHRISTIANS FROM SIXTEEN COUNTRI.

TRYING TO EQUIP THE CHURCH,

HAVE THE CHURCH UNDERSTAND MORE

HOW TO WORK CROSS CULTURALLY,

HOW TO LOVE PEOPLE FROM

DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AROUND.

ELI SAYS GOD GAVE HIM A

VISION TO DO SOMETHING BIGGER, O

SHARE HIS HEART FOR THE NATIONS,

NOT ONLY WITH THE PEOPLE OF

EASTBROOK CHURCH BUT WITH THE

ENTIRE MILWAUKEE COMMUNITY.

EACH YEAR HE SPONSORS AND

PARTICIPATES IN A CHARITABLE

MARATHON RACE CALLED RUNNING

FOR HOPE. THE IDEA CAME AS

ELO PLAYED SOCCER WITH HIS

SONS.

WHY I DON'T RUN? I DON'TÃWHYI

DON'T START AN ORGANIZATION

CALLED RUNNING BUT FOR HOPE,

AND DO THIS FUNDRAISING, AND SED

SHIP A CONTAINER OF WHEELCHAIRS

CRUTCHES, WALKERS.

CBN NEWS TALKED WITH SOME

OF THIS YEAR'S PARTICIPANTS.

I RUN WITH ELI BECAUSE HE'S

SO INSPIRATIONAL. HE RUNS WITH

ONE LEG AND IF I HAVE TWO I FEEE

I CAN HELP HIM OUT AND HELP HIS

CAUSE. IT'S CALLED RUNNING FOR

HOPE AND I FEEL LIKE WE GIVE HOA

LOT OF PEOPLE.

ELI HOPES TO RETURN TO

LEBANON SOMEDAY TO PERSONALLY

DELIVER WHEELCHAIRS AND OTHER

HELP. THAT'S UNLIKELY TO HAPPEN

AS LONG AS THE MILITANT ISLAMIC

GROUP HEZBOLLAH DOMINATES THE

COUNTRY.

I WANT TO OFFER SOMETHING

FOR THEM. I WANT TO SHARE MY STY

BECAUSE

THESE PEOPLE NEED GOD MORE

THAN ANY BECAUSE WE HAD WAR.

THESE PEOPLE ARE BROKEN,

SUFFERING. THEY ARE SO

SUFFERING AND THERE'S A LOT OF

HATE, ENMITY, AND PEOPLE REVENG,

AND WE ARE -- WE NEED GOD.

IN THE MEANTIME ELI SAYS HE

WILL CONTINUE THE ANNUAL

MARATHON. HE ALSO WANTS TO

ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO WIN LIFE'S

SPIRITUAL RACE.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE INSURANCE

AND HAVE THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH

CHRIST IN ORDER TO WIN THE

RACE. HE WAS THERE FOR ME WHEN

I WAS DYING ON THE GROUND AND I

KNEW THAT IN HEAVEN NOW MY LEG

WILL COME BACK AND NOT ONLY I

HAVE IT IN LIFE I WILL HAVE A

NEW BODY AND I CAN RUN AND I

CAN FLY. I CAN ENJOY THIS BODY.

THAT'S MY HOPE.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS,

MILWAUKEE.

LAURA-LYNN THAT IS SO COOL. W

WHAT I

LOVE ABOUT ELI IS THAT HE'S PLAG

SOCCER WITH HIS KIDS. HE'S NOT

ALLOWING HIS HANDICAP OR WHAT

HAPPENED IN THE PAST TO HOLD

HIM BACK, BUT HE'S INSPIRING NOT

ONLY MILWAUKEE BUT HE IS INSPIRG

MEN AND WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD.

GOOD ON HIM AS WELL FOR HELPINGS

THAT

ARE EXPERIENCING HANDICAP WITH

WHEELCHAIRS, CRUTCHES, AND

ALL THE OTHER TOOLS THAT THEY

NEED IN ORDER TO GET ON WITH

LIFE.

YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE ABOUT

GOD, BRIAN, IS THAT HE TAKES EVY

TRAGEDY AND HE TURNS IT INTO

SOMETHING REALLY AMAZING.

THAT'S RIGHT.

FOR ALL OF US, WE MIGHT

HAVE A TRAGEDY. WE MIGHT HAVE SG

THAT'S

HAPPENED THAT WE WERE NOT

EXPECTING. WE HAVE TO LIVE

WITH SOME SORT OF, YOU KNOW,

DEBILITY AND OUR LIFE BUT

DISABILITY IN OUR LIFE, BUT

GOD TAKES THAT AND HE MAKES

SOMETHING JUST OUTRAGEOUS WITH

IT.

ONE THING THAT I'VE

LEARNED THE GREATER THE

ADVERSITY THE GREATER THE

REWARD.

I AGREE.

WE'RE SEEING THAT AS

WELL. I MEAN HE WAS DEAD INSIDEE

CAME ALIVE AND NOW IS LIVING LIE

NEVER BEFORE.

IT'S COOL. WELL, UP NEXT TO A

SHABOUSA

SHARES HOW SHE DIED AND THE

MIRACLE THAT BROUGHT HER BACK

TO LIFE.

FATIMA SHABOUSA WORKS

HARD TO PROVIDE FOR HER AND HER

HUSBAND'S NINE CHILDREN. SHE

LIVES IN THE LITTLE VILLAGE OF

ELELU (SP?) IN RURAL ETHIOPIA. E

CONSIDERS HER SIMPLE LIFE A

GIFT FROM GOD BECAUSE IT WAS

GOD HIMSELF WHO RAISED HER FROM

THE DEAD.

FOR TWO MONTHS I WAS VERY

VERY SICK.

ONE DAY FATIMA'S MOTHER

CAME TO CARE FOR HER DAUGHTER,

BUT HER DAUGHTER PASSED AWAY.

SHE CAME AND TOUCHED MY FACE.

I WAS COLD AND MY EYES WERE

OPEN AND SHE CLOSED MY EYES AND

SHE STRAIGHTENED BY LEG. MY

MOTHER CRIED WHEN SHE FOUND OUT

THAT I WAS DEAD AND BECAUSE OF

THAT EVERYBODY CAME AND STARTED

CRYING.

THE PAIN FATIMA FELT DURING

HER LONG SICKNESS WAS FINALLY

OVER. FATIMA GREW UP MUSLIM BUT

HAD CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY.

SHE SAYS AFTER SHE DIED

SHE FELT HERSELF BEING DRAWN TO

HEAVEN.

I WAS VERY HAPPY AND I WAS

GOING WITH A VERY MERRY HEART.

A LONG THE WAY FATIMA SAW

SOMEONE SHE RECOGNIZED. IT WAS

HER HUSBAND'S BROTHER WHO HAD

DIED TWO YEARS EARLIER.

THAT BROTHER OF MY HUSBAND

CAME AND TOOK MY HAND AND HE

TOOK ME AWAY. I FELT LIKE THE

EARTH WAS LIKE AN OPEN DITCH

BUT I HAD GONE UP VERY HIGH.

WHEN I CROSSED OR WENT AWAY

FROM THE DITCH I REACHED A

PLACE WHERE EVERYBODY WAS

DRESSED WITH GOLD. I

LOOKED AT THIS THE EARTH AS

VERY DUSTY. BUT WHERE I WAS, WAS

REALLY VERY FREE AND CLEAN.

BACK AT HER HOME MORE AND

MORE PEOPLE WERE COMING TO

MOURN FATIMA'S PASSING.

MY RELATIVES HAD COME FROM

FAR AND THEY WERE

NON-CHRISTIANS, MUSLIMS, AND

THEY WERE CRYING VERY MUCH, BUT

A FEW CHRISTIANS WERE PRAYING.

A MISSIONARY NAMED WAS WARSAA

(SP?)

WAS WALKING NEARBY.

AFTER MY SALVATION GOD

TOLD ME I WILL RAISE THE DEAD

THROUGH YOU. WITH THAT WORD I

WAS PRAYING FROM THAT DAY ONWAR.

WHEN HE WAS PASSING BY HE

HEARD THAT SOMEBODY DIED SO HE

CAME. HE STARTED PRAYING.

THE NON-CHRISTIANS CAME AND

THEY WERE ASKING, WHY IS THIS

PENTECOSTAL MAN PRAYING OVER A

DEAD BODY.

AS WARSA PRAYED FATIMA'S

VISION OF HEAVEN CONTINUED.

MY HUSBAND'S MOTHER WAS

DEAD AND SHE WAS THERE IN THAT

PLACE AND SHE WAS BEGGING THEM

TO SEND ME BACK SO THAT I CAN

RAISE MY CHILDREN. THOSE PEOPLE

WHO WERE IN GOLD SAID SHE IS QUE

YOUNG, SO SEND HER BACK. SEND

HER BACK.

BY NOW FATIMA HAD BEEN DEAD

A FULL TWELVE HOURS WARSA KEPT

PRAYING.

I HAD FAITH THAT THE LORD

WORKED THROUGH ME. I PRAYED AS

PETER PRAYED. FATIMA, BE RAISED.

I ASK YOU IN THE NAME OF THE

LORD, COME TO LIFE. WHEN I

PRAYED THAT PRAYER FATIMA

RAISE IN THE NAME OF JESUS, SHE

SET UP IN THE BED.

IMMEDIATELY I FOUND MYSELF IN

MY BODY. I SAT UP IN MY BED AND

STARTED SAYING, WHAT IS THIS;

WHAT'S HAPPENING; WHAT'S GOING

ON. THEN EVERYBODY WAS

SURPRISED. SOME WERE

COMMENTING SO PENTIC (SP?P CAN K

A

DEAD BODY, A DEAD PERSON, A DEAO

A

BODY. IF THIS IS REAL THEN WE

ALL WILL BECOME PENTICS, THAT I,

CHRISTIANS AND

THEY WERE SHOUTING. I WAS A

CHRISTIAN AND MY HUSBAND WAS AN

EVANGELIST AND WHEN I DIED I

DIED AS A CHRISTIAN. THESE

PEOPLE CALLED WARSA AND THEY

STARTED COMMENTING, YOUR GOD IS

A VERY POWERFUL GOD. NOW MAKE

US BELIEVE. I CAME BACK

BECAUSE IT WAS THE WILL OF GOD

FOR ME TO LIVE WITH MY CHILDREN.

BUT I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY TO GO

BACK THERE. NOW I HAVE SEEN

WHEN A CHRISTIAN DIES HE GOES

TO A BETTER PLACE AND HIS BODY

GOES BACK TO DUST. FOR A

NONBELIEVER THAT IS A PLACE OF

SADNESS BUT WHEN A CHRISTIAN DIS

HE GOES TO A SEPARATE PLACE

WHERE EVERYTHING IS GOOD, WERE

EVERYTHING IS VERY VERY HAPPY.

HEY, DON'T MISS WHAT JUST

HAPPENED. FATIMA WAS DEAD AND

SHE'S NOW ALIVE. GOD IS RAISING

THE DEAD. DID YOU HEAR THAT,

CANADA? I MEAN THIS THING JUST E

AWAY. WHEN I WAS LOOKING AT THIS

I WAS SAYING GOD, YOU KNOW, I B-

HELP MY UNBELIEF, GOD, BECAUSE E

PRAY FOR TOOTHACHES, WE PAY FOR

ALL THESE THINGS, BUT WARSA,

THIS MISSIONARY CAME IN AND HE

STOOD BY THAT BEDSIDE AND HE

BEGAN GO IN THERE, LAY HANDS,

AND THEY SAID THE PENTECOSTAL

HAS COME. NOW THAT'S NOT A

DENOMINATION. THAT'S A

DISTINCTION OF SOMEONE WHO

BELIEVES IN THE SIGNS AND

WONDERS OF THE FIRST CENTURY

CHURCH IN THIS 21ST-CENTURY

CANADIAN SOCIETY OR ETHIOPIAN

SOCIETY. IT REMINDS ME OF A

TIME THAT THE BIBLE SAYS IN

ACTS CHAPTER 9, VERSE 36 TO 43,

IT TALKS ABOUT A WOMAN NAMED

DORCAS. NOW I'VE GOT A GREAT

FRIEND NAMED DORI. AND DORCAS IN

THE SAME WAY THIS WOMAN WAS

SUCH AN INSPIRATION TO HER

COMMUNITY, JUST LIKE FATIMA, THT

WHEN SHE DIED GOD DID NOT ALLOW

HER TO STAY DEAD BECAUSE OF THE

LOVE OF THE PEOPLE NOT JUST THE

LOVE OF DORCAS BUT IT WAS THE

LOVE OF THE PEOPLE. THIS IS

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS AND I LOVE E

39, THEN PETER AROSE AND WENT

WITH THEM, JUST LIKE WARSA, AND

WHEN HE HAD COME AND THEY

BROUGHT HIM TO THE UPPER ROOM

AND ALL THE WIDOWS STOOD BY

WEEPING. IT'S THE SAME THING.

HE BEGAN TO PRAY AND THEN GOD

RAISED DORCAS FROM THE DEAD AND

JUST LIKE THOSE WIDOWS, THEY

SAID, WOW, THIS IS THE REAL

POWER. I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS IN

ISLAM. I WANT TO KNOW THIS GOD.

GOD ALLOWED THAT WHOLE VILLAGE,T

LIKE IN

FATIMA, TO COME TO THE SAVING

KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST.

YOU KNOW, OH, THAT WE WOULD

HAVE THE FAITH TO BELIEVE FOR T.

WE DO. I DO.

YOU KNOW I HAD SOME GOOD

FRIENDS AND THEY LOST THEIR SON

AND YOU KNOW THAT THEY JUST HAD

SO MUCH FAITH THAT EVEN THE

VERY DAY THAT THEIR SON DIED

THEY SAID, GOD, WE KNOW YOU CAN

DO. WE TRUST YOU IT WAS NOT

GOD'S WILL THAT DAY THAT THIS

YOUNG MAN WOULD COME BACK TO

LIFE, BUT I WAS SO, I WAS SO

INSPIRED BY THEIR FAITH THAT

THEY WOULD EVEN JUST CALL OUT

TO GOD IN THAT MOMENT BECAUSE

WE CANNOT UNDERESTIMATE GOD.

GOD IS A MIRACLE WORKING GOD

AND WHEN HE DECIDES THAT IT'S

GOING TO HAPPEN IT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN BECAUSE THE SAME SPIRIT

THAT RAISED CHRIST FROM THE

DEAD DWELLS IN US. WHEN WE

RECEIVE JESUS, WE RECEIVE THE

POWER OF ALL OF HEAVEN. SO

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE WHAT GOD

CAN DO.

HE'S DOING THAT RIGHT NOW.

THE GREATEST MIRACLE IS

SALVATION WHEN ONE COMES TO

CHRIST. I'M TELLING YOU, MY

FAITH IS SUPERCHARGED BECAUSE I

KNOW THAT YOU'RE COMING,

SOMEBODY IS COMING ALIVE RIGHT

NOW. GOD IS GOING TO DO A WORK N

YOUR LIFE BUT I NEED YOU TO

STEP OUT WITH FAITH AS WELL.

CALL THE NUMBER ON THE

SCREEN AFTER WE PRAY THIS

PRAYER. BUT YOU HAVE BEEN SITTIG

THERE AND GOD HAS BEEN GETTING

YOUR ATTENTION. HE'S BEEN

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR BUT TODAY

YOU ARE SEEING THIS MISSIONARY

IN CANADA SAY IT'S YOUR TIME.

THIS IS YOUR SEASON. SAY THAT:

THIS IS MY SEASON. PRAY THIS

PRAYER WITH ME. LET'S DO SOME

BUSINESS WITH GOD. SAY THIS,

FATHER, I OPEN UP MY HEART. I

WANT TO BE SURE WHEN I DIE THAT

I WILL LIVE IN ETERNITY WITH

JESUS CHRIST. I'M ASKING NOW, I

CONFESS WITH MY MOUTH THAT

JESUS IS LORD ACCORDING TO YOUR

WORD AND I ASK YOU AS I GIVE

YOU MY PERSONAL PERMISSION FOR

YOUR HEAVENLY INTERVENTION TO

MAKE ME WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE.

IN JESUS CHRIST NAME I PRAY.

NOW FATHER I PRAY THAT THE

SUPERNATURAL POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT WOULD COME UPON THAT MAN

AND WOMAN WHO HAVE PRAYED THIS R

AND THIS DAY YOU WOULD DO A

SUPERNATURAL WORK IN THEIR LIFE

AND IT WOULD NOT STOP UNTIL THEY

SEE YOUR FACE TO FACE IN JESUS

LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION? CALL

THE 700 CLUB. WE'LL HELP YOU

FIND ANSWERS TO THE IMPORTANT

QUESTIONS LIFE BRINGS YOUR WAY.

[MUSIC]

I'VE SPOKEN BEFORE ABOUT

THE TWELVE SPIES SENT OUT BY MOS

TO SURVEY THE PROMISED LAND. I

WANT TO REVISIT THIS STORY AND

THEN CONTINUE WITH WHAT

HAPPENED YEARS LATER. YOU MAY

REMEMBER THAT ONLY TWO SPIES

CAME BACK WITH A POSITIVE

REPORT. THE OTHER TEN SAID, WEL,

THE FRUIT IS ABUNDANT;

LAND IS FLOWING WITH MILK AND

HONEY, BUT OH THOSE GIANTS.

IN NUMBERS 13:33 THEY SAID WE

WERE LIKE GRASSHOPPERS IN OUR

OWN SIGHT AND SO WE WERE IN

THEIR SIGHT. HERE'S AN

INTERESTING THING. NOT ONLY DID

THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SEE

THEMSELVES AS SMALL INSECTS,

BUT THEY SAID THAT THE ENEMY

SAW THEM AS GRASSHOPPERS TOO.

HOWEVER THE BIBLE GIVES NO

INDICATION THAT THE ENEMY EVEN

SPOTTED THEM OR THEY WOULD HAVE

BEEN CHASED DOWN AND KILLED.

SOMETIMES TODAY WE BELIEVE IN

OUR OWN MINDS WHAT WE THINK OUR

ENEMY PERCEIVES ABOUT US

INSTEAD OF WHO GOD HAS TOLD US

THAT WE ARE. MOSES REMINDED

THEM OF ALL THE MIRACLES THAT

GOD HAD DONE FOR THEM IN THE

LAST FORTY YEARS AS THEY WENT

THROUGH THE WILDERNESS, AND

THERE WAS NO NEED FOR THEM TO

WORRY BUT THEY WOULD NOT HEAR

IT. IN THEIR HEARTS THEY WERE

GRIPPED WITH FEAR AND SAW

THEMSELVES AS GRASSHOPPERS

INSTEAD OF DELIVERS. THIS WAS

GRIEVOUS TO THE LORD. THEY

LOOKED THROUGH THE LENS OF

THEIR OWN REASONING. THEY DID

NOT TRUST GOD. NOW THIS NEXT

PART IS REALLY

THOUGHT-PROVOKING. I HOPE YOU

WILL FOLLOW WHAT I'M SAYING.

YOU SEE AFTER MOSES HAD DIED

JOSHUA BECAME THE LEADER AND HE

AGAIN SENT SPIES TO SCOUT OUT

THE CITY OF JERICHO WHICH GOD

HAD PROMISED TO GIVE TO THE

CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. UNDER COVER

OF NIGHT THE SPIES CAME TO THE

PROSTITUTES HOUSE, REHAB'S HOME.

YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT SHE

TOLD THEM. YOU SEE IN JOSHUA 2:9

SHE SAID, I KNOW THAT THE LORD

HAS GIVEN YOU THE LAND THAT THE

TERROR OF YOU HAS FALLEN ON US

AND THAT ALL THE INHABITANTS OF

THE LAND ARE FAINTHEARTED

BECAUSE OF YOU. DO YOU HEAR WHAT

SHE IS SAYING? THE TERROR OF

YOU HAS FALLEN ON US. THIS WAS

THEIR ENEMY. THEIR ENEMY WAS

FAINTHEARTED BECAUSE THEY HAD

HEARD ABOUT WHAT THE GOD OF

ISRAEL HAD DONE PARTING THE RED

SEA AND BRINGING THEM VICTORIES

AGAINST OTHER ENEMIES. REHAB

GOES ON TO SAY AS SOON AS WE

HEARD THESE THINGS OUR HEARTS

MELTED; NEITHER DID THERE REMAIN

ANY MORE COURAGE IN ANYONE

BECAUSE OF YOU FOR THE LORD

YOUR GOD, HE IS GOD IN HEAVEN

ABOVE AND ON THE EARTH BENEATH.

DO YOU SEE THE UTTER IRONY OF

THE SITUATION? THE ISRAELITES

COWERED IN FEAR SEEING

THEMSELVES AS GRASSHOPPERS ALL

THOSE YEARS WHEN IN FACT THEIR

ENEMIES MELTED IN FEAR AND LOST

THEIR COURAGE. TO THIS DAY, OUR

ENEMY KNOWS EVEN MORE THAN WE DO

WHO WE ARE AND HOW POWERFUL

OUR GOD IS. WE CANNOT AFFORD TO

UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF

ALMIGHTY GOD IN OUR LIVES. WE

ARE NOT GRASSHOPPERS. WE WERE

BORN TO BE DELIVERERS IN THE

MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS.

AND GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU

AS WELL. YOU KNOW, I LOVE

JOSHUA AND CALEB. THEY SAID THE

TEN GOT IT WRONG. THEY WEREN'T T

ÃIT WASN'T A COMPLETE

WASHOUT. THEY KNEW THAT GOD HAD

A PLAN FOR THEM AND THEY SAID

GOD, WE ARE WELL ABLE TO

TAKE THE LAND. WHEN YOU SAY

YES, WHEN YOU ACT, GOD WILL REA.

BE ENCOURAGED. CALL THE

NUMBER ON THE SCREEN. TODAY IS

YOUR GREATEST DAY TO SEE A

MIRACLE. YOU KNOW COMING UP, LA-

LYNN TAKES IT TO THE STREET ANDE

LOOK BACK ON 2012'S GREATEST

MOMENT AND HERE'S A

CONVERSATION WITH SHEA.

WERE OUT HERE ASKING PEOPLE

WHERE THEY PUT THEIR FAITH WHEN

THINGS ARE DOWN. HAVE YOU EVER E

DOWN MOMENTS IN YOUR LIFE, SHAE?

I SURE HAVE.

YES?

I GUESS MY FATHER IS DYING

OF CANCER RIGHT NOW SO THAT'S

KIND OF NOT THE COOLEST THING.

DO YOU PRAY TO GOD AT ALL?

YES, I GUESS SO BUT IT'S NOTA

CHRISTIAN OR I DO KNOW ANY

RELIGION I GUESS. I'M GOING ON E

MY OWN BELIEFS, YOU KNOW.

GOING THROUGH SOMETHING

LIKE THAT IT MUST BRING LIFE A

LITTLE BIT MORE REAL.

YES. IT DEFINITELY DOES. IT S

YOU KIND OF VALUE IT A LOT

MORE AND REALIZE THAT TIME

IS SHORT. LIFE IS SHORT AND

JUST KIND OF MAKE THE BEST OF

IT. HE'S VERY CHRISTIAN AND

HE'S

HE IS?

HE'S PRETTY RELIGIOUS, YES.

SO YOUR DAD HAS A LOT OF

FAITH?

HE DOES, YES.

HAS THAT GIVEN HIM A LOT OF T

THIS TIME?

IT HAS, YES, THAT AND OUR FAR

FAMILY IS VERY

CHRISTIAN AS WELL.

BUT NOT YOU?

YES I GUESS SO. I DON'T KNOW.

HOW COME?

I DON'T KNOW. I GUESS --

I FEEL LIKE WHEN IT'S

PUSHED ON YOU AS A KID AND WHEN

YOU GET OLDER YOU KIND OF HAVE

THE CHOICE TO MAKE YOUR OWN

DECISIONS I GUESS THEN YOU, I DT

TO SAY

REBEL AGAINST IT BUT I KIND OF

LOOKING AT OTHER OPTIONS RATHER

THAN THAT.

WHAT IF YOUR FAMILY IS

RIGHT? WHAT IF IT'S JESUS?

IT COULD BE JESUS. IT COULD .

HE HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR

LIFE AND A PLAN.

YES, IT COULD BE HIM.

IS THERE COMFORT KNOWING

THAT YOUR DAD OF AT LEAST FEELS

VERY SECURE ABOUT WHERE HE'S GOG

WHEN HE PASSES ON?

IT'S NICE BECAUSE IT KIND

OF PUTS HIS MIND AT EASE, I

GUESS. I MEAN I THINK THAT

RELIGIONS LIKE CHRISTIANITY AND

YOU KNOW, ALL SORTS OF THINGS

THAT ARE JUST THEY'RE GREAT FOR

PEOPLE TO HAVE SOMETHING TO

BELIEVE IN YOU KNOW LIKE YOU'RE

SAYING WHEN TIMES ARE TOUGH THEN

IT'S NICE TO HAVE SOMETHING TO

FALL BACK ON OR SOMETHING TO

SAY THAT IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY

BECAUSE THIS IS HERE. I'M NOT

AGAINST CHRISTIANITY OR ANYTHINE

THAT.

I THINK IT'S GREAT FOR THE PEOPE

THAT BELIEVE IN IT AND YOU KNOW.

IF YOU GOT THAT KIND OF

DIAGNOSISÃIT'S A TERRIBLE THINGO

THINK ABOUT, BUT IF YOU DID

WOULD THAT CHANGE YOUR QUEST

FOR FINDING OUT WHAT THERE IS

PAST THIS LIFE?

I'M SURE IT WOULD BE ON MY MA

LOT. JUST LIKE ANY DYING PERSON

I'M SURE IT IS. I DON'T KNOW. I

GUESS IT DOES MAKE ME SO THINK

OF THE AFTERLIFE.

NO?

NO, BUT JUST HOW-- BECAUSE

NO ONE REALLY KNOWS FOR

SURE I MEAN THERE'S BELIEFS, YES

AND THERE'S NEAR-DEATH

EXPERIENCES, BUT I GUESS NO ONEY

KNOWS FOR SURE. IT KIND OF MAKEU

JUST THINK HOW SHORT LIFE IS

AND HOW PRECIOUS IT IS

YOU KNOW I WOULD LIKE TO PRAY

FOR YOUR DAD.

THANK YOU.

THAT HE BE AT PEACE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THAT GOD WOULD BLESS HIM AT

THIS LAST TIME AND THAT YOU HAVA

WONDERFUL VISIT WITH HIM.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IT'S VEE
