Gordon Robertson tackles the Mayans 12/21/12 doomsday prediction. Plus, food and nutrition expert Matt Goulding offers insight on how to enjoy Christmas comfort foods without the guilt. Read Transcript


Gordon: IT'S THE END OF

THE WORLD, OR IS IT?

THEY DON'T SAY ANYTHING

FURTHER ABOUT WHAT WILL

HAPPEN.

Gordon: HEAR WHY THE

MAYANS BELIEVE DOOMSDAY IS

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.

AND WHY THEY'RE WRONG.

THIS DOESN'T NECESSARILY

SAY SHE WAS SUCCESSFUL IN

SEEING ANYTHING.

Gordon: PLUS, HEALTHY

ALTERNATIVES FOR YOUR

FAVORITE FOODS ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

WINTER HAS FUELED

REVOLUTIONS ACROSS THE

MIDDLE EAST AND NOW THE

WHITE HOUSE IS USING IT,

HOPING TO WIN A BUDGET

BATTLE.

Terry: PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS USING SOCIAL MEDIA TO

MOBILE LISTEN THE MASSES.

AND HE IS DOING IT BY

TURNING THE FISCAL CLIFF

ISSUE INTO A POCKETBOOK

ISSUE.

Reporter: THE COMMANDER

IN CHIEF ALREADY HODES THE

MOST POWERFUL BULLY PULPIT

IN THE WORLD.

HE IS DOING IT BY USING

AMERICA'S MOST FAVORITE

PASTTIME, TWITTER.

HE HAS CREATED THE HASH TAG,

MY2K, THE AMOUNT THE WHITE

HOUSE SAYS THE AVERAGE

FAMILY WILL LOSE TO THE

GOVERNMENT IF TAX CUTS

EXPIRE.

MORE THAN A MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE USED THE HASH TAG,

TWEETING THEIR TWO CENTS

ABOUT THE ESTIMATED $ ,000

THEY WILL LOSE IF WE FALL

OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF.

President Obama: MY

TWEET HAS BEEN POSTED.

Reporter: SIGNING OFF

AT B.O., FOR BARACK OBAMA.

THIS VIDEO OF HIM WAS, OF

COURSE, TWEETED.

A VIRGINIA WOMAN WHO TWEETED

TWEETED UNDER THE HASH TAG,

THAT SHE RECEIVED A PERSONAL

ADVICE FROM THE PARENTS.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND LIVE

WITH HER PARENTS.

President Obama: $2,000

FOR HER AND HER HUSBAND IN

THIS HOUSEHOLD, WOULD

ACTUALLY MEAN $4,000 WAS

LOST.

Reporter: SPEAKER JOHN

BOEHNER SHARING A LINK TO

POLLING DATA.

A RECENT SURVEY SHOWS

CUTTING TAXES MORE POPULAR

THAN MORE JOBS.

AND PETER ABRAHAM TWEETS,

THERE ARE NO ENOUGH RICH

PEOPLE TO COVER GOVERNMENT

AND THE MASSIVE SPENDING.

THE GOAL OF THE MY2K

CAMPAIGN IS TO PERSONAL LIES

THE POLITICAL DEBATE.P1

AFTER THEP1 ELECTION, OBAMA

FOR AMERICA SURVEYED ITS

ARMY OF VOLUNTEERS, AND

NEARLY 80% SAY THEY WANT TO

KEEP VOLUNTEERING, PRIMARILY

AROUND THE PRESIDENT'S

LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.

ON MR. OBAMA'S Facebook

PAGE, A PERSONAL,

QUOTE,"WHEN THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE SPEAK LOUDLY ENOUGH,

LO AND BEHOLD, CONGRESS

LISTENS."

WE CAN EXPECT SOCIAL MEDIA

TO PLAY A MORE IMPORTANT

DESIGN.

Gordon: PRESIDENT OBAMA

WAS THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO

NEVER DISBAND HIS CAMPAIGN

STAFF.

HE KEPT IT GOING FOR THE

FULL FOUR YEARS OF HIS FIRST

TERM.

AND NOW IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS

GOING TO KEEP IT GOING FOR

THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.

SO GET READY, THERE IS GOING

TO BE MORE CAMPAIGNING OVER

THIS BUDGET FIGHT, OVER THE

FISCAL CLIFF.

AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD PAY

ATTENTION TO THE NUMBERS,

BECAUSE EVEN IF THE TAX

INCREASE HAPPENS, IT'S NOT

ENOUGH INCOME TO SOLVE THE

DEFICIT.

IF THERE ISN'T CORRESPONDING

CUTS TO GO ALONG WITH THE

INCOME BEING RAISED, THE

REVENUE INCREASING, WE'RE

NOT EVEN CLOSE TO GETTING A

BALANCED BUDGET.

I KEEP REMINDING PEOPLE,

BANK OF AMERICA DID A STUDY,

AND IT IS TWO YEARS OLD NOW,

AND SAID IF WE GET RID OF

ALL DISCRETIONARY SPENDING

AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL, AND

ALL MILITARY SPENDING AT THE

FEDERAL LEVEL, WE STILL

HAVEN'T SOLVED OUR BUDGET

PROB.

PROBLEM.

AND TECHNOLOGY IS ALSO

BREAKING NEW GROUND IN

RELATIONSHIPS.

LEE WEBB HAS MORE.

Lee: THE SENATE HAS

TAKEN A STEP TOWARDS BANNING

CYBER-STALKING ON CELL

PHONES.

THE SENATE APPROVED A BILL

THAT MAKES IT A CRIME FOR

COMPANIES TO MAKE AND

OPERATE SO-CALLED STALKING

APPS.

RIGHT NOW A JEALOUS SPOUSE

CAN DOWNLOAD AN APP FOR

ABOUT $50.

THEY CAN THEN TRACK THROUGH

PARTNER THROUGH THEIR CELL

PHONE WITHOUT THEM KNOWING.

THEY HAVE LOCATE PHYSICAL

LOCATIONS AND WEBSITE

VISITS.

ALL RELATED TO AN E-MAIL

ADDRESS CHOSEN BY THE

INSTALLER.

YOUR LOCATION CAN BE PASSED

TO AVERTISERS, MARKETERS,

AND OTHERS, WITHOUT YOUR

PERMISSION.

THE U.S. AND OTHER WESTERN

NATIONS ARE REFUSING TO

ENDORSE A CONTROVERSIAL

UNITED NATIONS INTERNET

TREATY.

IT MAY NOT MATTER.

IT IS EXPECTED TO BE

APPROVED ANYWAY.

THE U.S. ARGUES THAT THE

TREATY GIVES AUTHORITATIVE

REGIMES GREATER CONTROL TO

CENSOR THE INTERNET.

BUT SOME APPROVE IT,

INCLUDING CHINA, RUSSIA,

IRAN, AND THE GULF ARAB

STATES.

THEY SAY THE WEST HAS BEEN

FAR TOO DOMINANT OVER THE

INTERNET.

A LIST OF CANDIDATES TO

REPLACE HILLARY CLINTON AS

SECRETARY OF STATE HAS

NARROWED.

THE PRESIDENT'S TOP PICK HAS

WITHDRAWN HER NAME.

Reporter: U.N.

AMBASSADOR, SUSAN RICE, ONCE

WAS A SHOO-IN FOR SECRETARY

OF STATE.

BUT CONTROVERSY OVER HER

EXPLANATION FOR THE BENGHAZI

ATTACK SPIKED HER

CANDIDACY.

ON WEDNESDAY, RICE SAYS SHE

NO LONGER WANTS THE JOB.

IN A LETTER TO THE

PRESIDENT, SHE WROTE, "THE

POSITION OF SECRETARY OF

STATE SHOULD NEVER BE

POLITICIZED.

I AM SADDENED WE HAVE

REACHED THIS POINT, EVEN

BEFORE YOU DECIDED WHOM TO

NOMINATE."

RICE CAME UNDER HEAVY

CRITICISM BY REPUBLICANS FOR

HIS EXPLANATION ON THE

ATTACKS OF THE U.S.

CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI.

WHEN MANY EXPECTED IT WAS A

PLANNED TERROR ATTACK.

WE ARE SIGNIFICANTLY

TROUBLED BY MANY OF THE

ANSWERS THAT WE GOT, AND

SOME THAT WE DIDN'T GET.

Reporter: HER EXIT

MAKES AN OPENING FOR

DEMOCRATIC SENATOR, JOHN

KERRY.

HE HAS BOLTED TO THE

PRESIDENT'S TOP LIST OF

POSSIBLE CANDIDATES.

KERRY IS NOTED FOR HIS

FOREIGN RELATIONS

EXPERIENCE, AND HIS

RELATIONSHIP-BUILDING

SKILLS, THAT COULD HELP HIM

SUCCEED AS THE COUNTRY'S TOP

CANDLE.

AND CHUCK CAGEL HAS EMERGED

TO REPLACE LEON PANETTA.

AND THERE IS AN OPENING AT

THE TOP JOB AT THE C.I.A.

JOHN BRENNAN AND OTHERS ARE

CONTENDERS.

MEANWHILE, A KERRY

NOMINATION COULD MEAN A

VACANT SEAT IN SPECIAL

ELECTION IN MASSACHUSETTS.

SCOTT BROWN IS VIEWED AS A

STRONG CONTENDER TO FILL THE

SPOT.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Lee: MEANWHILE,

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS MADE IT

CLEAR THAT SUSAN RICE WILL

STAY ON AS U.N. AMBASSADOR

AND REMAIN A KEY MEMBER OF

HIS CABINET AND NATIONAL

SECURITY TEAM.

THE U.S. IS SENDING PATRIOT

MISSILES AND TROOPS TO

TURKEY.

THE DEFENSIVE WEAPONS ARE TO

PROTECT TURKEY FROM MISSILE

ATTACKS FROM NEIGHBORING

SYRIA, WHICH IS EMBROILED IN

A CIVIL WAR.

400 SOLDIERS ARE NEEDED TO

OPERATE THOSE TWO MISSILE

BATTERIES.

LEON PANETTA SIGNED THE

ORDER.

TURKEY IS A NATO MEMBER IS

REQUESTED THE WEAPONS.

GERMANY AND THE NETHERLANDS

WILL ALSO SEND PATRIOT

MISSILES TO TURKEY.

ARMED FORCES OF THE ISLAMIC

REGIME IN SUDAN ATTACKED AT

LEAST 26 VILLAGES IN THE

NUMA MOUNTAINS.

SATELLITE IMAGES SHOWED

BURNED OUT HUTS IN SOUTH

CORTAVAN, WHICH THE NUMA

MOUNTAINS ARE LOCATED.

THE SOURCES SAY IT DESTROYED

FOODS, HOMES, AND

GRASSLANDS.

THE NUMA REGION IS HOME TO

SOME OF THE LARGEST

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES.

THEY SUFFERED ATTACKS

BETWEEN THE 20-YEAR WAR

BETWEEN THE ISLAMICS IN THE

NORTH AND SOUTH.

CBN NEWS ASKED HIM WHY THE

REGIME IS TARGETING THESE

PEOPLE AGAIN.

THE GOVERNMENT OF SUDAN

IS PURSUING A POLICY OF

SCORCHED EARTH AND

STARVATION WARFARE IN ORDER

TO RID THE NUMBA MOUNTAINS

OF THE NUMBA PEOPLE.

IT IS AN ETHNIC CLEANSING

CAMPAIGN, BLOCKADING ALL

HUMANITARIAN RELIEF INTO

SOUTH CORTAVAN.

THAT MEANS NO FOOD, NO

DRINKING WATER, AND NO

MEDICINE IS GETTING TO THE

TENS OF THOUSANDS, OR

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS,

ACTUALLY, OF INTERNALLY

DISPLACED PEOPLE.

Lee: AND YOU CAN CAN

SEE THAT ENTIRE INTERVIEW

ON CBNNEWS.COM.

YOU HAVE PROBABLY HEARD BY

NOW THAT THE ANCIENT MAYAN

CIVILIZATION PREDICTED THE

END OF THE WORLD ON 20-12

DECEMBER 21, 2012.

WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE

HEARD IS IN ORDER TO ESCAPE

IT WOULD BE TO GO TO A

MOUNTAIN.

Reporter: GUBERROCK

MOUNTAIN IS A SPACE STATION

THAT WILL RE RESCUE PEOPLE

FROM THE END OF THE WORLD.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FLOCKING

HER, INTENDING TO PROTECT

THEMSELVES FROM WHAT THEY

SAY IS THE COMING

APOCALYPSE.

HE SAYS THE GATEWAY WILL

OPEN IN LINE WITH THE

PLANETS OF THE SUN.

MOST TOWNS PEOPLE ARE

NON-BELIEVERS AND THINK ALL

OF THE ATTENTION IS FUNNY.

THIS LOCAL MAN EXPECTS A FEW

HUNDRED PEOPLE TO BE HERE

FOR THE BIG DAY.

SOME LOCALS, HOWEVER, FIND

THE WHOLE THING A BIT

ANNOYING.

LIKE VALERIE AUSTIN, WHO

RETIRED HERE FROM ENGLAND TO

GET AWAY FROM IT ALL.

WHEN I FIRST CAME HERE,

ONE COULD CLIMB THE PEAK AND

SEE NOBODY ALL DAY.

AND NOW IT'S LIKE PASS BY

THE RIGHT, PASS BY THE LEFT,

AND I THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE

DESTROYED SOME THINGS THAT

WERE THERE BEFORE.

THAT'S A SHAME.

Reporter: UNLIKE THE

MAYAN CALENDAR, THE BIBLE

SAYS NO ONE KNOWS THE DATE

THE WORLD WILL END.

WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THE

WORDS OF JESUS, DO NOT

BELIEVE CONCERNED ABOUT THE

FUTURE.

BELIEVE IN GOD, BUT ALSO

BELIEVE IN ME.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM TO TAKE

CARE OF US.

Reporter: LORI JOHNSON,

CBN NEWS.

Lee: THIS IS A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY FOR CHRISTIANS

TO BRING THE REIGN OF CHRIST

TO BEAR.

Gordon: UP NEXT, WHAT

IS REALLY BEHIND THE

PREDICTION OF THE WORLD

ENDING ON 12-21-12.

DID THEY REALLY PREDICT THE

END OF THE WORLD?

AND THEN WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

SAY ABOUT ALL OF THIS.

Terry: AND LATER ON,

SKINNY COMFORT FOOD.

JUST IN TIME FOR THE

HOLIDAYS.

EAT THIS.

MATT GOLDING SHOWS YOU HOW

TO MAKE YOUR FAVORITE GUILTY

PLEASURES, BUT WITHOUT THE

GUILT.

Terry: WELL, WE ARE

JUST EIGHT DAYS AWAY FROM

WHAT SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE

WILL BE THE END OF THE

WORLD.

ACCORDING TO THE MAYAN

CALENDAR.

AND ALL OF THIS TALK HAS

SOME OUR VIEWERS VERY

CONCERNED.

OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS,

WE'VE GOTTEN SEVERAL E-MAILS

ASKING ABOUT THE

PREDICTION.

HERE IS ONE FROM JASMINE WHO

SAYS, "MY FRIENDS AND SOME

OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS TOLD ME

THE WORLD IS SUPPOSED TO END

ON DECEMBER 21, 2012.

BUT THE BIBLE SAYS NO MAN

KNOWS WHEN THE WORLD IS

GOING TO END.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

THIS?"

AND APRIL ASKS, "IS THERE

ANY REASON TO HAVE FEAR OR

CONCERN ABOUT DECEMBER 21,

2012?"

Gordon: AND WE'RE GOING

TO ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS.

THE PREDICTIONS ABOUT THE

END OF THE WORLD HAVE BEEN

GOING ON FOR HISTORY.

EVEN THE POPE IN 1,000

A.D.TOOK PEOPLE OFF TO A

MOUNTAIN EXPECTING THE

RETURN OF CHRIST AND THE END

OF THE WORLD.

YOU LOOK AT ALL OF THESE

PREDICTIONS, AND WHAT DOES

THE BIBLE SAY.

ON THE MAYANS, WHAT EXACTLY

DO THEY BELIEVE.

AND HOW DID THEY COME UP

WITH THE DOOMSDAY DATE OF

DECEMBER 21, 2012?

WELL, WATCH THIS.

FOR 1300 YEARS, TECHAL WAS

THE HEART OF THE MAYAN

CIVILIZATION.

IT WAS CALLED THE CITY OF

VOICES.

IN THEIR TEMPLES, PRIESTS

PERFORMED SACRIFICES AND

STUDIED THE STARS.

AND SOME BELIEVED THEY

PREDICTED THE END OF THE

WORLD.

THE MAYAN LONG-COUNT

CALENDAR IS EVEN MORE

ACCURATE THAN OUR OWN.

BUT IT SAYS ON DECEMBER 21,

2012, THE LONG COUNT OF TIME

WILL REVERT TO ZERO.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

DURING THE PERIOD, THEY

MADE A SERIES OF

INSCRIPTIONS IN STONE.

THEY MENTIONED THE BEGINNING

AND THE END OF THIS ERA, BUT

THEY DON'T SAY ANYTHING

FURTHER ABOUT WHAT WILL

HAPPEN.

SOME PEOPLE THIS 5,125 CYCLE

WILL END CATASTROPHICLY,

THAT IT WILL BE THE END OF

THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.

Gordon: THE MAYANS

BELIEVED THEIR LIVES

DEPENDED ON OBSERVING THE

SKY AND PREDICTING THE

FUTURE.

Reporter: THEY RELIED

ON THE HARVEST, SO THEY

NEEDED TO KNOW HOW THE

WEATHER, AND THE RAINY

SEASON IN GENERAL, WOULD

AFFECT THEIR CROPS.

AND IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO

THE MAYANS TO GET THE

ATTENTION OF THEIR GOD.

THEY WANTED THEIR

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND THEIR

BLESSING FOR A BETTER

FUTURE.

Gordon: TO GET THE

ATTENTION OF THEIR GODS AND

ANCESTORS, THE EARLY MAYANS

SACRIFICED BLOOD, THEIR OWN

BLOOD.

THEY BELIEVE THAT GOD

ACTUALLY CREATED MAN FROM

CORN.

TO BRING THAT CORN TO LIFE,

THE GODS HAD TO SACRIFICE

THEIR OWN BLOOD.

THTHE MAYANS FELT INDEBTED

TO THEM AND GAVE THEIR

BLOOD.

Gordon: IN THEIR

EFFORTS TO GET CLOSER TO THE

GODS, MAYANS WENT THROUGH

LONG PERIODS OF FASTING AND

ISOLATION.

BUT THEY CAN ONLY ENTER INTO

THE PRESENCE OF GOD AFTER

EXTREME SELF-SACRIFICE.

SAND-STONE CAR VINCE GILL

CARVINGS SHOW THE RITUAL.

A WOMAN PIERCES HER TONGUE.

THE MORE PAINFUL THE RITUAL,

THE MORE AVAILABLE THE

BLOOD.

WE BELIEVE THEY DRANK

SOME SORT OF INTOXICATING

SUBSTANCE AND THEN PERFORMED

THESE RITUALS.

THE PAIN ITSELF WAS VERY

IMPORTANT.

HOLDING THE TONGUE, THEY

WOULD RUN A CORD, SOMETIMES

LACES WITH THORNS.

AND THE SMOKE OF THE BLOOD

ROSE INTO THE SKY TO THE

GODS.

Gordon: FROM THE

BURNING SCROLLS RISES THE

IMAGE OF A SERPENT, AND

PERHAPS AN ANCESTOR, GOD, OR

ANCIENT KING.

BUT THE IMAGE IS ELUSIVE.

CARVED INTO THIS STONE IS

THE MAYAN GLIF FOR CONJURE.

IT CONSISTS OF A HANDúv

GRASPING A FISH.

FOR THE MAYANS, SEEING THE

VISION IS LIKE REACHING INTO

A FLOWING STREAM TO CATCH A

FISH.

HARD TO CONTROL, AND EASY TO

LOSE.

IF WE READ IT, IT ONLY

SAYS CONJURE.

IT DOESN'T EVEN SAY VISION.

AFTER ALL OF HER SUFFERING,

THIS DOESN'T NECESSARILY SAY

SHE WAS SUCCESSFUL IN SEEING

ANYTHING.

Gordon: DURING THE

EARLY YEARS OF THE MAYIAN

CIVILIZATION, EVEN KINGS

PERFORMED THESE PAINFUL

RITUALS, DESPERATELY SEEKING

THE GODS ON BEHALF OF THEIR

PEOPLE.

OVER THE CENTURIES, THE

GREAT MAYAN EMPIRE CRUMBLED,

AND THEIR CITIES AND TEMPLES

WERE ABANDONED AND LOST IN

THE JUNGLE.

STILL, REMNANTS OF THE

CULTURE REMAIN.

IT WAS A BLENDING OF

CULTURES FROM MEXICO AND THE

MAYAN TERRITORIES.

IT SEEMS THERE WAS A MOMENT

WHEN A DIVINE THUR THIRST

FOR BLOOD SPRUNG UP.

Gordon: IN THE 16

HANDLING CENTURY, A SPANISH

MONK WROTE OF WITNESSING

MAYAN POLIC PEOPLE TRYING

TO REACH GOD.

THEY HURT HIM, CUTTING

HIM WITH A KNIFE, BETWEEN

THE RIBS, ON THE LEFT SIDE.

THE PRIEST REACHED INTO HIS

CHEST AND DROPPED HIS HEART,

LIKE A RABBIT TIGER,

SNATCHING IT.

AND THEN THEY PUT HIS HEART

ON A PLATE.

Gordon: MANY OF THE

ANCIENT RITUALS DIED WITH

THE PRIESTS, WHO WERE KILLED

BY SPANISH SOLDIERS, IN WHAT

CAME TO BE KNOWN AS THE

MEXICAN INQUISITION.

BUT THEIR CULTURE DOESN'T

COMPLETELY DISAPPEAR.

ROROBERTO IS A MODERN MAYAN

PRIEST.

WHAT WE'RE DOING WITH THE

CEREMONIES, WITH THE SACRED

FIRE, IS ASKING GOD TO GIVE

US HIS BLESSING.

TO TEACH US HOW TO LIVE

WELL, TO BRING PEACE TO OUR

COUNTRIES, AND TO BLESS OUR

FAMILIES.

WE CONJURE HIM SO HE CAN

SPEAK TO US THROUGH THE

FIRE.

Gordon: TO THIS DAY,

DESCENDENTS OF THE MAYAN

STILL PRACTICE MANY ANCIENT

TRADITIONS.

THEY OFFER SACRIFICES AND

CONJURE VISIONS, ALL IN

HOPES OF PLEASING THE GODS,

AND CATCHING AN ELUSIVE

GLIMPSE OF ETERNITY.

WELL, HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE

HAS TO SAY ABOUT ALL OF

THIS.

AND ANY TIME YOU HEAR ANYONE

TELL YOU THAT THEY KNOW THE

DAY AND THEY KNOW THE HOUR

AND THEY ARE PREDICTING THE

END OF THE WORLD, WELL, YOU,

WITH CONFIDENCE, CAN SAY

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT.

HERE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS.

YOU FIND IT IN MATTHEW 24:

36: "BUT OF THAT DAY AND

HOUR, NO ONE KNOWS, NOT EVEN

THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN.

BUT MY FATHER ONLY."

START IMAGINING, EVEN JESUS

DIDN'T KNOW.

AND IF HE DIDN'T KNOW, HOW

IN THE WORLD CAN SOME PERSON

TODAY OR SOME CALENDAR FROM

HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO

ACCURATELY PREDICT THE END

OF THE WORLD?

IT IS NONSENSE.

THE WORLD IS NOT GOING TO

END OF DECEMBER 21st.

AND YOU HAVE THE WORDS OF

JESUS TO BACK IT UP.

BUT JESUS DID GIVE US WHAT

WOULD BE THE SIGN.

AND IT'S FROM THE SAME

CHAPTER.

MATTHEW 24: 29-31:

"IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE

TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS"

AND HERE IS THE SIGN -- "THE

SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND

THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS

LIGHT.

THE STARS WILL FALL FROM

HEAVEN, AND THE POWERS OF

THE HEAVENS WILL BE SHAKEN

SHAKEN.

THEN THE SIGN OF THE SON OF

MAN WILL APPEAR IN HEAVEN,

AND THEN ALL OF THE TRIBES

OF THE EARTH WILL MOURN, AND

THEY WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN

COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF

HEAVEN WITH POWER AND GREAT

GLORY.

AND HE WILL SEND HIS ANGELS,

WITH THE GREAT SOUND OF A

TRUMPET, AND THEY WILL

GATHER TOGETHER HIS SELECT

FROM THE FOREWINDS, FROM END

OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER."

THAT'S THE SIGN, WHEN THE

SUN NO LONGER GIVES ITS

LIGHT, WHEN THE MOON NO

LONGER SHINES.

WHEN THE STARS LITERALLY

FALL FROM HEAVEN.

WHEN YOU SEE ALL OF THESE

THINGS, WELL, THEN LOOK

BECAUSE YOUR REDEMPTION

DRAWS NIHE.

IN THE JEWISH TRADITION, THE

BEGINNING OF THE WORLD WAS

WITH THE SHOFER GLASS.

THERE WILL BE YET OTHER

SHOFER GLASS, AND JESUS WILL

APPEAR AND GATHER US TO

HIM.

DON'T BE DISMAYED IF YOU SEE

THESE THINGS COMING, LOOK TO

YOUR REDEMPTION.

Terry: NEXT, TAKE

COMFORT FROM YOUR FAVORITE

FOODS, BUT DO IT WITHOUT

PACKING ON THE POUNDS.

CHEF MATT GOLDING PRESENTS

SKINNY COMFORT FOODS AFTER

THIS.

Terry: SHOPPING,

WRAPPING, RUSHING, ALL OF

THE PRESSURES SURROUNDING

THE HOLIDAYS CAN DRIVE US TO

EAT FOR COMFORT.

Reporter: WE CRAVE OUR

FAVORITE COMFORT FOODS THAT

ARE FULL OF SUGAR, SALT, AND

FAT.

AND THE CRUEL REALITY IS

THEY CAN BE THE MOST

DAMAGING TO OUR BODIES.

MATT GOLDING IS CO-AUTHOR OF

THE "EAT THIS, NOT THAT"

HEALTH SERIES.

IN "COOK THIS, NOT THAT,

SKINNY COMFORT FOODS," MATT

SHARES HOW YOU CAN STILL

ENJOY YOUR FAVORITE DISHES,

WITHOUT THE GUILT, AND EVEN

LOSE WEIGHT.

Terry: MATT GOLDING IS

WITH US NOW.

WE WANT TO WELCOME YOU BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT BOOKS

OUT ON THIS SUBJECT.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK A LITTLE

ABOUT THE LATEST ONE, BUT,

FIRST OF ALL, WHAT DO YOU

CONSIDER TO BE COMFORT

FOOD?

TO ME, MY PURE DEFINITION

OF COMFORT FOOD IS WHAT MY

MOM AND DAD MAD, ITALIAN

SAUSAGE, AND MY DAD MADE

SMOOTHIES IN THE MORNING.

BUT WE ARE EATING OUT MORE

NOW.

Terry: AND LOTS OF US

ASSOCIATE COMFORT FOOD WITH

LOTS OF CARBS.

WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES US

CRAVE THESE FOODS.

I USED TO WORK IN

RESTAURANTS, FANCY

RESTAURANTS AND HIGH-END

RESTAURANTS, AND ONE THING

LINKING THEM ALL IS THE

DESIRE FOR FAT, SALT, AND

CARBS.

WHY?

ONE BECAUSE IT TASTES GOOD,

AND IT IS CHEAP.

Terry: LET'S TALK A

LITTLE BIT ABOUT TRADITIONAL

COMFORT FOODS VERSUS YOUR

SKINNY COMFORT FOODS.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I THINK

WILL BE ENCOURAGING TO

PEOPLE.

WE WANTED TO FIND OUT THE

WAY TO TAKE OUT THE

CATASTROPHIC BAD EFFECT OF

THE FOOD.

WE'RE NOT USING APPLESAUCE

FOR BUTTER.

THIS IS REAL FOOD WITH REAL

INGREDIENTS, MADE SIMPLY.

Terry: LET'S TALK ABOUT

PIZZA.

THIS IS AN AMERICAN

PASTTIME.

AMERICANS EAT 150 SLICES

OF PIZZA A YEAR.

IF YOU TAKE AN AVERAGE

SUPREME PIZZA, YOU HAVE

840 CALORIES, AND 52 GRAMS

OF FOO FAT FOR TWO SLICES.

WE USE A THIN CRUST, WITH

ROASTED RED PEPPERS AND

SAUTEED SPINACH.

YOU TAKE THE 150 SLICES AND

STRETCH THEM OUT, AND YOU

MAKE THIS SIMPLE SWAP, AND

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT LOSING

EIGHT POUNDS.

Terry: YOUR BOOK IS

"COOK THIS, NOT THAT," AND

ONE OF THE THINGS I'M

REALIZING READING YOUR

RECIPES, IS THAT IT IS GOING

TO TASTE GOOD.

WHEN YOU START SUBSTITUTING

REAL FOODS --

YOU WON'T WANT TO EAT

IT.

AND SO THEN WHAT'S THE

POINT.

Terry: EXACTLY.

YOU MENTIONED A LOT OF US

EATING OUT.

LET'S TAKE SOME PLACE LIKE

AN APPLEBEES, THAT MIGHT

HAVE ONE KIND OF FRIED

CHICKEN.

IF YOU'RE HAVING FRIED

CHICKEN AT APPLEBEES, YOUR

LOOKING AT 1,160 CALORIES

FROM THE AVERAGE CHICKEN.

WE BRINE THE CHICKEN

OVERNIGHT IN BUTTER MILK AND

HOT SAUCE.

AND WE BREAD IT WITH THIN

BREAD CRUMBS, AND POP IT IN

THE OVEN.

YOU GET 215 CALORIES.

AND FRIED CHICKEN -- THIS

ONE ABSOLUTELY TASTES LIKE

FRIED CHICKEN.

Terry: THAT'S AWESOME.

AND WHAT IS THIS NEXT TO

IT?

FRENCH FRIES.

AT A RESTAURANT, NOT SO

MUCH.

SIZE IS A THROW-AWAY

DECISION, BUT IT IS ONE OF

THE MOST HARMFUL THINGS WE

GET AT RESTAURANTS.

660 CALORIES, THAT IS MORE

CALORIES THAN A BIG MAC IN A

SIDE DISH.

WE WANT TO MAKE CRISPY

FRENCH FRIES AT HOME IN THE

OVEN.

THAT MEANS WASHING AWAY THE

SURFACE STARCH, WASHING

THEM, AND BAKING THEM UNTIL

CRISPY, AND THEN TOPPING

THEM WITH FRESH ROSEMARY AND

A LITTLE BIT OF GARLIC AND

PARMESAN.

190 CALORIES FOR THIS CRISPY

VERSION HERE.

Terry: NOW I SEE WHAT

WE HAVE HERE ARE SOME

INGREDIENTS FOR MAC AND

CHEESE, THE ALL-TIME

FAVORITE.

MY PERSONAL FAVORITE.

Terry: AND WE CAN DO

THIS

IN A HEALTHY FASHION?

WE CAN.

WHAT WE DO HERE, THE

DIFFERENCE IS WE MAKE A

BESHER MELT.

I USED TO COOK IN A MISE

RESTAURANT IN WEST L.A.

WHICH IS VERY, VERY

WELL-KNOWN FOR THEIR MAC AND

CHEESE.

AND THE REASON IS BECAUSE

THEY USED TWO QUARTS OF

CREAM.

AND WE'RE USING LOW-FAT

MELT.

BUTTER AND FLOUR AND LOW-FAT

MILK.

THE BUTTER IS GOING TO

THICKEN IT UP, WITH OUT ALL

OF THE CALORIES OF HEAVY

CREAM OR HALF AND HALF.

THIS HAS THE SAME FLAVOR AS

CHEDDAR CHEESE, AND A LITTLE

BIT OF GRATED PARMESAN.

INTENSE FLAVORS IS WHAT

WE'RE LOOKING FOR.

AT THE VERY LAST SECOND,

WHAT WE'LL DO IS STIR IN A

LITTLE BIT OF GREEK

YOGHURT.

IT IS HIGH IN PROTEIN, AND A

LITTLE BIT OF FAT, WITHOUT

ALL OF THE CALORIES.

THE MAGIC OF TELEVISION, WE

HAVE ONE SIMMERING OVER

HERE.

THIS IS THE CHEESE SAUCE.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED AFTER

ABOUT FIVE MINUTES.

IT THICKENS UP, AND TOSS IN

YOUR PASTA, ALDENTE, BECAUSE

YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE

REALLY, REALLY SOFT

MACARONI.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND MIX IT

UP.

Terry: WOW, IT REALLY

IS NICE.

LOOK AT THE CLEAN

FACTOR.

THIS IS REAL MAC AND

CHEESE.

THIS IS NOT LEAN CUISINE MAC

AND CHEESE.

YOU GO AHEAD AND POP IT OVER

HERE.

ONE THING I LOVE ABOUT

MACARONI AND CHEESE IS THAT

IT GETS BAKED IN THE OVEN

AND YOU GET THAT TEXTURAL

CONTRAST.

BREAD CRUMBS OVER THE TOP.

RATHER THAN BAKING IN THE

OVEN FOR 30 MINUTES, BECAUSE

IT IS GOING TO COME OUT DRY,

WE'RE GOING TO PUT IT UNDER

THE BROILER FOR ABOUT FIVE

MINUTES.

SO WE GET THAT NICE

CARMELIZATION.

AND LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE

HERE.

Terry: THE MAGIC OF

TELEVISION AGAIN.

SO YOU CAN SEE HERE --

PUT IT ON THE CUTTING

BOARD.

INDIVIDUAL SERVINGS OF

MACARONI AND CHEESE, CRISPY

AND CHEES CHEESY, AND ALL

OF THE THINGS YOU WANT,

316 CALORIES.

IF YOU EAT MAC AND CHEESE

ONCE A WEEK AND YOU MAKE

THIS ONE SIMPLE SWAP, YOU'RE

GOING TO SAVE 15 POUNDS A

YEAR.

Terry: THAT'S

DELICIOUS.

THIS SORT OF DEMONSTRATES

US TO MAKE THE POWER-MAKING,

SIMPLE DECISIONS IN YOUR

KITCHEN.

Terry: I'M LOOKING AT

THIS CAKE.

WHAT IS COMFORT FOOD

WITHOUT

CHEESECAKE.

IT IS

ALWAYS GOING TO BE A

DANGEROUS THING.

THE AVERAGE CHEESECAKE, FROM

CHEESECAKE FACTORY,

990 CALORIES, AND 44 GRAMS

OF SATURATED FAT.

IT IS LIKE SITTING DOWN AND

HAVING 44 STRIPS OF BACON

FOR DESSERT.

Terry: GOOD GRIEF.

YOU'RE RUINING ME.

A LITTLE BIT OF LOW-FAT

CHEESE WITH RICOTTA.

WE TOP IT

WITH

A BLUEBERRY

COMPOST.

YOU PUT IT

RIGHT OVER THE

TOP.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU

HAVE 360 CALORIES.

Terry: WHERE THERE

IS A

FORK, THERE IS A WAY.

OKAY, CAN I

TASTE

THIS?

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE.

DRUMROLL.

Terry:

OH, WOW.

HOW

ARE WE DOING?

Terry: FABULOUS.

ARE WE DOING WELL?

Terry: PEOPLE, WE CAN

DO THIS.

FOR MORE OF MATT GOLDING'S

SKINNY COMFORT FOODS, GET A

COUPLE OF HIS BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "COOK THIS, NOT

THAT."

YOU GO.

FOR GORDON, OVER TO YOU.

Gordon: SAVING AMERICA

ONE DISH AT A TIME.

STILL

AHEAD, AN EXTREME

CHRISTMAS MAKE OVER FOR

VETERANS AND THEIR

FAMILIES.

DECORATE A VET IS COMING

UP.

AND MEET A MODERN DAY FAMILY

OF BETHLEHEM SHEPHERD, AND

FIND OUT HOW THREE GIFTS

CHANGED THEIR LIVES.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

ATHEISTS ARE SPREADING THEIR

VERSION OF CHRISTMAS CHEER

BY ATTACKING CHRISTIANITY.

THEY HAVE A NEW BILLBOARD IN

TIMES SQUARE.

IT INCLUDES IMAGES OF SANTA

AND JESUS.

AND IT READS "KEEP THE MARY,

AND DUMP THE MYTH."

OUT OF THOSE TWO FIGURES,

THEY LABEL JESUS ASS MYTH.

THE GROUP'S ATTACKS ON

CHRISTIANITY HAVE BECOME

ROUTINE.

A LOUISIANA COUPLE IS

PRAISING "OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR COMING TO

THEIR AID DURING A MILESTONE

IN THEIR LIVES.

GLORIA AND COLIN WERE

PLANNING TO RENEW THEIR

MARRIAGE VOWS DURING 22

YEARS MARRIAGE, BUT THEIR

PLANS WHERE INTERRUPTED WHEN

THEIR HOME WAS FLOODED WITH

12 FEET OF WATER DURING THE

HURRICANE.

THEIR WEDDING BANDS WERE

LOST, BUT "OPERATION

BLESSING" STEPPED IN, GIVING

THEM A WEDDING TO REMEMBER.

AND WHILE CLEANING UP THE

DEBRIS, "OPERATION BLESSING"

EVEN FOUND THEIR RINGS.

AND THEY ALSO HELPED WITH

THE CEREMONY, PROVIDING THE

RECEPTION, A CAKE, AND A

CARRIAGE RIDE.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

WHAT "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

DOING AROUND THE WORLD, BY

GOING TO ITS WEBSITE AT

OB.ORG.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, CHRISTMAS

IS A TIME TO SHOW OTHERS HOW

MUCH WE APPRECIATE THEM.

THAT'S WHAT MOTIVATED A

BUSINESSMAN IN NORTHERN

VIRGINIA TO DEVELOP A

VOLUNTEER PROJECT THAT IS

BRINGING CHRISTMAS CHEER TO

VETERANS AND THEIR

FAMILIES.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IT IS A

CHILLY DECEMBER MORNING WITH

THIS GROUP OF YOUNG

VOLUNTEERS HARD AT WORK.

THEY'RE SPRUCING

UP THIS

TOWNHOUSE AND DECORATING FOR

CHRISTMAS.

THE HOME BELONGS TO TONY

KENNEDY, AND HIS WIFE,

SYLVIA.

I REALLY APPRECIATE

THIS.

Reporter: TONY, A

15-YEAR VETERAN OF THE ARMY

AND THE MARINES FOUGHT IN

THE WAR IN IRAQ.

HE IS NOT USED TO BEING ON

THE RECEIVING END OF

SERVICE, BUT HE IS GETTING

USED TO IT.

THIS VOLUNTEER PROJECT IS

CALLED "DECORATE A VET'S."

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR COMING

OUT.

I APPRECIATE IT.

Reporter: JEFF JONES, A

LANDSCAPING BUSINESS OWNER,

STARTED THE EFFORT THREE

YEARS AGO.

HIS MOTIVATION CAME FROM HIS

FATHER AND GRANDFATHER'S

MILITARY SERVICE.

HIS MISSION IS SIMPLE:

BEAUTIFY THE OUTSIDE OF A

VETERAN'S HOME.

WE DO EVERYTHING FROM

CLEANING THE YARDS, LEAF

BLOWING AND MULCHING, TO

INSTALLING PATIOS AND

WALKWAYS.

EVEN LAST YEAR, WE DID AS

MUCH AS REPLACING WINDOWS

AND DOORS AND GUTTERS AND

ROOFS.

WE PROBABLY DID A HOUSE LAST

YEAR, WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN

$80,000, OR $90 THAT WORTH

OF WORK.

THE HOUSE BEHIND US TODAY IS

SIMPLE DECORATING.

SO IT REALLY RANGES.

Reporter: A LOT HAPPENS

BEHIND THE SCENES, TOO, LIKE

FUNDRAISING.

HOME DEPOT DONATED $2,000 OF

CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.

WE WANT TO DECORATE IT

WITH PRIDE, NEATLY, SLOWLY,

AND CAREFULLY.

YOU'VE GOT DIRTY HANDS.

WIPE YOUR FEET AND TAKE YOUR

SHOES ON.

Reporter: JONES SAYS

HIS WORK ON THE MISSION

FIELD HELPS WITH ALL OF

THAT.

IT GAVE ME A LEG UP ON

HOW TO DO IT, HOW TO FIND

PEOPLE, HOW TO SELECT

PEOPLE, HOW TO ORGANIZE

PEOPLE AND FIND DONATIONS

AND VOLUNTEERS.

MISSION WORK WAS A STEP IN

TO DOING THIS.

Reporter: DECORATE A

VET DRESSES UP SIX TO EIGHT

HOMES EACH CHRISTMAS.

TONY KENNEDY'S WIFE SAW A

LOCAL NEWS STORY AND

SUBMITTED HER HUSBAND'S

NAME, HOPING TO LIFT HIS

SPIRITS.

I THOUGHT MAYBE IF I

COULD BRING SOME HOLIDAY

CHEER TO TO MY HUSBAND THIS

CHRISTMAS SEASON, I WANTED

THAT OPPORTUNITY.

Reporter: THE

VOLUNTEERS CLEANED UP THE

YARD, MADE WREATHS, AND HUNG

LIGHTS, AND DECORATED TWO

CHRISTMAS TREES, ONE OUTSIDE

AND ONE INSIDE.

THESE KIDS WERE MOVING

WITH THE PRECISION OF A

MILITARY UNIT.

I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED BY

THAT.

TONY WAS NOT WORKING

RIGHT NOW, AND THAT'S PRETTY

MUCH THE REASON WHY I

CONTACTED THE ORGANIZATION.

BUT I HAVE TO SAY, THIS HAS

JUST BEEN -- I JUST FEEL SO

BLESSED.

THAT PEOPLE ARE SO GIVING OF

THEIR TIME.

THE FACT THESE YOUNG KIDS

WILL COME OUT HERE AND DO

SOMETHING LIKE THIS FOR ME

ON A SATURDAY, I WAS REALLY

IMPRESSED.

IT FEELS REALLY -- I TOLD MY

WIFE, IT IS PROBABLY ONE OF

THE BEST CHRISTMASES I HAVE

GOTTEN IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Terry: IF YOU WOULD

LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON THE

"DECORATE A VET" PROJECT,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON

TO CBN.COM.

A WORTHY ENDEAVOR.

Gordon: NOW WE WANT TO

TAKE YOU TO BETHLEHEM, WHERE

A FAMILY OF MODERN DAY

SHEPHERDS EXIST.

NOT LONG AGO, THEY WERE

BARELY ABLE TO SURVIVE.

AND DAN RAINY GIVES US THE

STORY

ABOUT

HOW THREE GIFTS

CHANGED THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: SHEPHERDING

HAS ALWAYS BEEN A WAY OF

LIFE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE

HOLY LAND.

THE ANGELS ANNOUNCED THE

BIRTH OF CHRIST TO SHEPHERD,

WHO WERE KEEPING WATCH OVER

THEIR FLOCK BY NIGHT.

SHEPHERDS HAVE USED FIELDS

LIKE THIS, NOT TOO FAR FROM

BETHLEHEM, FOR THOUSANDS OF

YEARS.

BUT EARLIER TODAY, WE MET A

SHEPHERD FAMILY THAT IS

REALLY SUFFERING.

NOT FAR FROM BETHLEHEM LIVES

A MUSLIM WOMAN NAMED AMINA.

AND SHE AND HER HUSBAND

RAISED SHEEP FOR DECADES.

AMINA SEWS AND HER HUSBAND

DOES CONSTRUCTION TO SUPPORT

THE FAMILY.

THEY HAVE FIVE CHILDREN,

INCLUDING MOHAMMED, WHO HAS

MUSCLMUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.

WHEN I SEE MOHAMMED, I

LOVE HIM.

HE IS A SWEET CHILD.

Reporter: THIS IS ONE

OF THE VERY FEW CENTERS THAT

HELPS PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL

NEEDS IN THE WEST BANK.

THE MORE MOHAMMED DOES, THE

MORE HE IS ABLE TO DO.

THERAPY IS SO HARD, BUT I

WANT TO WORK ONE DAY.

I WANT TO BE A SHEPHERD.

Reporter: THEY EVEN

HAVE OPEN PASTURE NEXT TO

THEIR HOME.

IT IS VERY NICE DOWN

THERE.

AS A FAMILY, WE GO INTO THE

VALLEY OFTEN.

WE HAVE PICNICS OR JUST WALK

AND ENJOY THE NATURE.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" GAVE THE FAMILY

THREE PREGNANT

SHEEP.

TODAY, WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING'S" HELP, YOU AND

YOUR FAMILY ARE SHEPHERDS

AGAIN.

YES, WE ARE SHEPHERDS

AGAIN.

YOU CAN SEE MY SMILE.

WE ARE SO HAPPY AND

GRATEFUL.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY FOR US.

Reporter: IN JUST TWO

MONTHS, THE FAMILY HAS BEEN

ABLE TO BUY GOATS FOR

MILKING, CHICKENS, AND MORE

SHEEP.

AS HE WORKS WITH ALL OF THE

LIVESTOCK, MOHAMMED IS

BECOMING MORE MOBILE EVERY

DAY.

IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO KNOW

YOU ALL.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A WOMAN

WHO HAD EXCRUCIATING PAIN IN

HER JAW FOR THREE MONTHS.

SEE WHAT HEALED HER

OVERNIGHT.

PLUS WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE BACK RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: FOR MOST OF HER

LIFE, NORA HAD PRAYED FOR

OTHER PEOPLE, AND SHE HAD

SEEN MANY OF THEM HEALED.

BUT AFTER SUFFERING CONSTANT

PAIN HERSELF FOR TWO MONTHS,

SHE WAS BEGINNING TO DOUBT

SHE WOULD EVER BE HEALED.

I JUST WOKE UP ONE

MORNING, AND SUDDENLY I HAD

THIS EXCRUCIATING PAIN ON MY

LEFT-HAND SIDE.

MY JAW.

I COULD NOT OPEN MY MOUTH

WIDE BECAUSE OF THE PAIN.

I COULD NOT SLEEP.

I COULD NOT EAT WELL.

IT CAUSED MY HEAD TO ACHE ON

ONE SIDE.

AND I WASN'T ABLE TO DO

THINGS LIKE BRUSH MY TEETH.

SO I DECIDED TO GO TO THE

DOCTOR.

AND HE EXAMINED ME AND

PRESCRIBED PAIN MEDICINE.

SO I TOOK THEM FOR, LIKE,

THREE MONTHS.

BUT NOTHING WORKED.

I WAS, LIKE, I THINK I NEED

TIME TO GO RIGHT NOW BECAUSE

THE DOCTORS ARE NOT DOING

ANYTHING, AND THE MEDICATION

IS NOT DOING ME ANY GOOD.

I USUALLY WATCH "THE 700

CLUB."

TERRY WAS PRAYING, AND IT

WAS LIKE SHE WAS SPEAKING TO

ME.

BECAUSE SHE WAS SAYING --

Terry: IT IS NOT

T.M.J., BUT THE MAIN IS SO

SHOOTING IT GOES RIGHT UP

INTO YOUR HEAD.

GOD IS HEALING THAT JAW

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

JUST RECEIVE THAT.

THE NEXT MORNING, WHEN I

WOKE UP, THE PAIN WAS GONE.

I WAS FILLED WITH JOY.

AND I WAS JUST THANKING

GOD.

I'M NOT IN PAIN, AND I CAN

OPEN MY MOUTH.

I CAN SPEAK OUT LOUD.

AND, YEAH, IT WAS A

MIRACLE.

IT WAS AMAZING.

I'M HEALED, YOU KNOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, I'M HEALED.

I WAS EXCITED.

YEAH.

AND I'VE NOT EXPERIENCED ANY

PAIN EVER SINCE.

IF YOU BELIEVE AND PRAY WITH

THEM, MIRACLES WILL HAPPEN.

AND IT IS REAL.

IT HAS HAPPENED TO ME, AND

IT IS REAL.

Terry: AWESOME STORY.

GOD IS SO GOOD.

AND HE WANTS TO TOUCH YOUR

LIFE TODAY.

JUST TO ENCOURAGE YOU THAT

NORA IS NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO

HAS BEEN TOUCHED BY GOD IN A

ESPECIALLSPECIAL WAY.

I WANT TO READ A PRAYER

REPORT FROM THOMAS IN

RUSSELL SPRINGS, KENTUCKY.

HE WAS EXPERIENCING PAIN IN

HIS CHEST AND ARMS.

HE HAD A STRESS TEST.

THE TEST SHOWED HE HAD

SEVERE SPELLS OF ANGINA, FOR

WHICH HIS DOCTOR GAVE HIM

MEDICATION.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, HE WAS

WATCHING THIS SHOW, THE "THE

700 CLUB," AND GORDON, YOU

SAID, YOU FAILED THE STRESS

TEST, AND YOU'VE BEEN HAVING

PAIN.

AND YOU'RE REALLY WORRIED

ABOUT WHAT IS THE NEXT

STEP.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT MORE TESTS

TO FIND OUT WHAT IS WRONG.

GOD KNOWS.

HE IS HEALING YOUR HEART AND

THAT PAIN IS LEAVING YOU.

GO BACK AND GET ANOTHER

STRESS TEST, AND REALIZE

YOU'VE BEEN HEALED IN JESUS'

NAME.

GORDON'S WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

DESCRIBED THOMAS' SITUATION,

AND SO HE CLAIMED IT AS HIS

OWN.

A WEEK LATER, HE HAD ANOTHER

STRESS TEST AND THE DOCTOR

COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING

WRONG.

Gordon: PRAISE GOD.

IT IS A MIRACLE.

START REALIZING CHRISTIANITY

IS NOT SOME RELIGION YOU

OBSERVE.

IT IS SOMETHING YOU

PARTICIPATE IN.

AND WHAT IS YOUR GOSPEL.

WHAT IS YOUR GOOD NEWS?

WHAT HAS GOD DONE FOR YOU?

WHAT HAS HE SPECIALLY DONE,

WHERE HE HAS MOVED HEAVEN

AND EARTH ON YOUR BAF? BEHALF?

TO BRING YOU HEALING, JOY.

THAT'S YOUR GOSPEL, BE PART

OF IT.

MERE IS MAUREEN BANKS, FROM

SPOKAN, WASHINGTON.

SHE HAD SEVERAL ACCIDENTS,

AND SHE HAD PAIN.

SHE WASN'T ABLE TO STAND UP

OR FUNCTION WITHOUT PAIN.

SHE WENT TO A CHIROPRACTOR,

BUT THE EFFECTS WERE

TEMPORARY.

TERRY, YOU SAID, SOMEONE HAS

A PROBLEM WITH THE LOWER

PART OF YOUR SPINE.

IT IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT, BUT

IT CAUSES ALL KINDS OF

DISCOMFORT.

SITTING, STANDING, WHATEVER

YOU DO.

GOD IS CORRECTING THAT RIGHT

NOW.

JUST STRETCH UP AND RECEIVE

THE HEALING.

MAUREEN CLAIMED THE HEALING,

AND WITHIN THREE DAYS, SHE

HAS BEEN ABLE TO STRAIGHTEN

UP.

AND SHE IS FREE FROM PAIN

AFTER 17 YEARS.

WOW!

Terry: WOW!

Gordon: GOD IS A GOOD

GOD.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM.

YOU CAN TRUST HIS UNFAILING

LOVE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CONVINCE

HIM TO HEAL YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH

ANY KIND OF RITUALS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SHOW THAT

YOU PRAY REALLY WELL.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE SOME GREAT FACTS.

JESUS CAME, THE PROMISED

ONE, THE MESSIAH, HE CAME.

HE WAS BORN TO A VIRGIN IN

BETHLEHEM.

AND HE LIVED A SINLESS LIFE,

AND HIS BLOOD WAS DIVINE.

AND WHEN HE OFFERED HIMSELF

AS A SACRIFICE FOR OUR SIN,

HE TOOK CARE OF EVERY SIN,

EVERY PROBLEM, AND BY HIS

STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.

AND, HE DIDN'T STOP THERE.

HIS BODY RESTED IN HOPE.

AND THREE DAYS LATER, HE WAS

RAISED FROM THE DEAD.

AND RIGHT NOW HE SITS NEXT

TO THE FATHER IN HEAVEN.

AND WHAT IS HE DOING?

HE IS PRAYING.

HE EVER LIVES TO GIVE

INTERCESSION.

FOR WHO?

FOR YOU.

SO JUST START BELIEVING

RIGHT NOW.

THIS GREAT FACT, JESUS IS

PRAYING FOR YOU.

SO IT'S NOT UP TO YOU.

IT'S NOT UP TO YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS JUST

BELIEVE THAT GREAT FACT.

AND UNDERSTAND HIS PRAYERS

WORK.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

AGREE, AND WE'RE GOING TO

CLAIM A GREAT VERSE, "IF TWO

OR MORE AGREE, TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE

DONE."

SO YOU TOUCH THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

YOU LAY YOUR HAND ON

YOURSELF.

IF THERE ARE PEOPLE AROUND

YOU, ASK THEM TO COME

ALONGSIDE AND ASK THEM,

WOULD YOU PRAY WITH ME,

WOULD YOU BE IN AGREEMENT

WITH ME?

AND TERRY AND I WILL AGREE.

AND GUESS WHO ELSE IS

AGREE.

JESUS IS AGREEING IN

HEAVEN.

HE IS PRAYING FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

SO HE IS PART OF THIS.

AND LET'S AGREE.

AND LET'S BELIEVE.

AND LET'S LET GOD DO ALL OF

THE REST.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND WE

JUST ARE ASSURED OF YOUR

UNFAILING LOVE.

IT IS THE LOVE MADE WITH

YOUR BLOOD.

THIS IS THE COVENANT, THE

NEW COVENANT IN YOUR BLOOD.

ONE THAT WE DIDN'T EVEN ASK

FOR.

WE DIDN'T EKNO EVEN KNOW TO

ASK FOR, BUT YOU GAVE TO US

BECAUSE YOU LOVED US.

SO WITH THIS COVENANT WE'RE

ASSURED OF YOUR GRACE AND

YOUR MERCY.

AND SO WE COME BOLDLY TO THE

THRONE OF GRACE.

AND WE ASK BOLDLY FOR THOSE

WHO ARE LAYING HANDS ON THAT

AREA OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

AND WE COME INTO AGREEMENT

WITH THEM NOW.

AND BY THE POWER GIVEN TO US

AS BELIEVERS, WE SAY

TOGETHER OUT LOUD, BE

HEALED.

AND BE MADE WHOLE.

BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

AND BY HIS STRIPES, WE ARE

HEALED NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

LAYING YOUR HAND ON THE

RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR LOWER

BACK.

YOU'VE GOT TREMENDOUS KIDNEY

PAIN.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT SURGERY.

YOU'VE -- YOU'RE VERY

ANXIOUS AND FEARFUL, AND GOD

JUST WANTS TO SPEAK TO YOU

DIRECTLY RIGHT NOW.

THAT KIDNEY IS BEING

HEALED.

YOU'RE BEING RESTORED NOW.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT CANCER.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT HARDENING.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT IT BEING REMOVED.

GOD IS HEALING YOU NOW.

GO BACK AND GET RETESTED.

ALL OF THAT PAIN JUST LEFT

YOU.

GO BACK AND GET RETESTED AND

REALIZE GOD HAS HEALED YOU.

YOUR TREMENDOUS MIRACLE HAS

HAPPENED TO YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: YOU'VE HAD A

VERY BAD INFECTION, A

COMBINATION COLD AND FLU,

BUT IT HAS SETTLES IN YOUR

LUNGS.

YOU CAN'T EVEN ACTUALLY TAKE

A DEEP BREATH WITHOUT JUST

COUGHING UNCONTROLLABLY.

GOD IS TOUCHING AND HEALING

ALL OF THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE HAD A

LOT OF MENTAL CONFUSION.

I DON'T KNOW THE CAUSE OF

THAT.

RIGHT NOW JUST RECEIVE

CLARITY OF MIND, JUST

RECEIVE THE POWER OF MIND

THROUGHOUT YOUR BEING AS GOD

SETTLES THAT FOR YOU.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, WHO'S NAME IS

MARIA, AND YOU'VE GOT

CURVATURE OF YOUR SPINE AND

A CURVATURE OF YOUR LEFT

SOLDIER. LEFT-- SHOULDER, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

SO GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JESUS: "IN THE

WORLD, YOU WILL HAVE

TRIBULATION, BUT BE OF GOOD

CHEER.

I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD."
