Watch the 700 Club Canada for December 27, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO. I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA-LYNN

TYLER THOMPSON.

THANKS FOR JOINING US

TODAY.

YOU KNOW, LAURA-

LYNN, WE ALL NEED GOD

ON A DAILY BASIS.

YES.

BUT, UM, I REMEMBER

BECAUSE I'M CANADIAN

BY CHOICE, NOT BY BIRTH.

AND, UH, SOMETIMES WE--

WE NEED GOD SORT OF

LIKE THEY NEED HIM IN

TEXAS. INSTEAD OF R-I-G-

H-T, RAT, RAT NOW. HAVE

YOU EVER NEEDED GOD

RIGHT NOW?

OH, SO MANY TIMES. I'M

TELLING YOU, YOU DON'T

GET TO BE LIKE THIS--THIS

GIRL AND NOT HAVE

NEEDED GOD MANY,

MANY, MANY TIMES. UM, I

HAVE CRIED OUT TO HIM,

UH, IN BROKENNESS, FROM

BROKEN PLACES, IN

FAILURE, JUST KNOWING

THAT HE WAS MY ONLY

HOPE AND HE HAS BEEN

BRIAN, HE'S BEEN MY

ONLY HOPE AND I THANK

HIM THAT HE HAS MET MY

NEED. HE HAS MET MY

PRAYER EVERY TIME I

PRAYED IT. TODAY,

YOU'LL MEET TWO WOMEN

WHO REALIZED THAT GOD

IS THERE RIGHT WHEN YOU

NEED HIM MOST.

UM-HUM. LEE RAY

LEEMEZ LEARNED THAT

GOD CAN TURN EVEN THE

MOST DIRE

CIRCUMSTANCES AROUND

AS SHE LAY SLEEPLESS IN

HER HOSPITAL BED THE

NIGHT BEFORE MAJOR

SURGERY WITH HER LIFE

HANGING IN THE BALANCE,

YOU'LL SEE THE MIRACLE

THAT OCCURRED JUST AS

THE DOCTORS WERE

ABOUT TO OPERATE.

HMM. FOR FAYTINE

GRAZEKI'S EATING

DISORDER, IT WAS

COMPLETELY OUT OF

CONTROL. WITH HER

HEALTH FAILING, SHE PUT

HER TRUST IN GOD AND

HER STORY IS PROOF THAT

EVEN IF YOU'VE

STRUGGLED WITH

SOMETHING FOR YEARS,

THERE IS HOPE.

AND JOE AMAROL IS

BACK TO SHOW YOU MORE

HIDDEN SECRETS FOUND IN

THE BIBLE IN HIS

COMPELLING NEW SERIES.

BUT FIRST, LEE RAY

LEEMEZ GETS A MIRACLE

RIGHT WHEN SHE NEEDED

IT THE MOST.

THE LORD HAS BLESSED

ME WITH SO MANY THINGS,

'98 WE GOT MARRIED, '99

WE BOUGHT THE HOUSE,

2000 MY SON WAS BORN.

AND I SAID LORD, WHAT

MORE COULD I ASK FOR?

I'M SO BLESSED. BUT THEN

AGAIN, TRIAL COMES. I

WENT TO THE WASH ROOM

AND I SAW THAT THERE IS

BLOOD IN MY URINE. AND

IT SCARED ME. SO THE

DOCTOR, THE SPECIALIST

AT SUNNYBROOK

RECOMMENDED BIOPSY ON

MY KIDNEY AND THEY DID

A BLOOD COUNT, I'M

LOSING BLOOD. SO RIGHT

AWAY, THEY ADMITTED ME

AT SUNNYBROOK. AND

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO. I WAS KIND OF

SCARED. IT WAS A LIFE-

THREATENING THING. SO

THEY DID AN ULTRASOUND

HOUR, EVERY HOUR OF THE

DAY. AND THEY DID SOME

BLOOD COUNT AS WELL.

THEY TOOK BLOOD OF ME.

AND SOMEHOW, IT SEEMS

LIKE I'M LOSING BLOOD

AND THE KIDNEYS, THEY

FINALLY FOUND OUT THAT

THE VEINS AROUND THE

KIDNEY BURST. AND

THAT'S WHAT'S CAUSING

THE--THE BLOOD COMING

OUT FROM MY URINE. SO

THEY THOUGHT OF TWO

PROCEDURE, ONE IS

THROUGH INTRAVENOUS

IV AND THAT WILL TAKE A

LONG TIME. THE LAST

RESORT WAS THE

OPERATION. AND THEY

SPOKE TO MY HUSBAND A

DAY BEFORE THAT THEY

WILL DECIDE ON WHAT

THEY'RE GOING TO DO TO

ME. THEY SAID MR.

LEEMEZ, I'M SORRY TO

TELL YOU THAT BOTH

PROCEDURE HER CHANCES

OF SURVIVAL IS 40%. SO

IT'S LIKE TELLING MY

HUSBAND YOUR WIFE IS

GOING TO DIE. IT'S NOT

EVEN 50%, NO HOPE AT

ALL. THE NIGHT BEFORE

THERE IS THIS VOICE IN ME

THAT'S SAYING TURN ON

THE TV. THERE'S A SHOW

ABOUT HEALING. AND

EXACT WORDS THE

MINISTER SAID THERE IS

SOMEBODY IN THE

HOSPITAL BLEEDING IN

HER KIDNEY AND THE

LORD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW. SO I DIDN'T

EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT IT

THAT IT WAS FOR ME. I

DIDN'T EVEN CLAIM IT,

RIGHT? BUT SOMEHOW

THERE IS THIS WARMTH

CAME INTO MY BACK AT

THAT TIME. I REMEMBER

VIVIDLY SAYING TO THE

LORD, LORD, IF YOU'RE

TAKING ME HOME, I'M

READY BECAUSE I KNOW

WHERE I'M GOING. BUT

FOR MY SON'S SAKE, HE

WAS JUST A YEAR AND A

HALF AT THAT TIME. IF

YOU WANT--IF YOU WANT

ME TO LIVE, THEN PLEASE,

DO IT--DO IT FOR MY SON.

SO THEY CAME, THERE'S

FOUR OF THEM, AND THIS

DOCTOR JUST LOOK AT ME

AND SAYS WHY ARE YOU

SO SAD? AND I THOUGHT

HE MUST BE JOKING. I'M

DYING AND HE'S ASKING

ME WHY AM I SO SAD? AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN HE SAID

YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY

BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING

HOME TOMORROW. AND I

THOUGHT, I SAID WHAT'S

HE TALKING ABOUT? AND

THEN HE SAID YOUR LAST

ULTRASOUND AN HOUR

AGO, IT SEEMS LIKE THE

VEIN IS STARTING TO

CONNECT. AND HE SAID I

DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED, BUT THEY'RE

CONNECTING. BUT IN MY

HEART I KNOW. I KNOW

WHAT HAPPENED, IT WAS

GOD.

(MUSIC)

I WAS LEAVING, THERE'S

THIS LADY WHO SPOKE

WITH ME WHO IS MY, UH,

ROOMMATE AT THE

HOSPITAL. AND SHE SAID

TO ME THAT I'M SUPPOSED

TO BE THE ONE GOING

HOME. I'VE BEEN HERE

FOR THREE WEEKS AND

YOU'RE ONLY BEEN HERE

FOR FOUR DAYS. AND

THEN BEFORE I COULD

ANSWER HER, SHE SAID

BUT I KNOW WHY YOU'RE

GOING. BECAUSE I

ALWAYS HEAR YOU AND

YOUR HUSBAND EVERY

NIGHT PRAYING AND

CRYING TO THE LORD. AND

I SAID LORD, YOU SPOKE

TO THIS WOMAN. I--AND

SOMEHOW IN MY HEART

THE LORD SAYS THAT'S

WHY I BROUGHT YOU HERE

TO SAVE HER. AND

SOMEHOW I JUST CRIED

AND I SAID LORD, THAT IS

SUCH A VERY HARD WAY

OF, YOU KNOW, WINNING A

SOUL. RIGHT? BUT GOD

HAS A WAY. OKAY? YEAH.

HE HAS A WAY. SO WHEN I

SPOKE TO HER AND I SAID,

UM, OH YOU HAVE HEARD

US PRAYING? I SAID, WELL,

YOU COULD DO THE SAME,

I SAID. AND IF YOU WANT

BEFORE I GO, I COULD

PRAY FOR YOU. AND I DID.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED TO HER, BUT I

KNOW THE LORD DOES.

IT'S AMAZING IN HOW GOD

WORKS IN SO MANY

DIFFERENT WAYS IN OUR

LIVES. AND BECAUSE IT'S

ALWAYS BEEN MY PRAYER,

LORD, USE ME. USE ME.

AND I NEVER THOUGHT

THAT THE LORD WILL DO IT

THAT WAY IN A VERY

DIFFICULT WAY,

CHALLENGING WAY, BUT,

UM, GOD IS FAITHFUL. YOU

KNOW? GOD IS FAITHFUL,

HE NEVER LEAVES US NOR

FORSAKE US

YOU KNOW WHAT I

LOVE ABOUT LEE RAY'S

STORY IS THIS TESTIMONY

THAT GOD HAS GIVEN IN

CANADA. AND IT SHOWS

THAT JESUS SPEAKS

TODAY. AND THIS ISN'T

SOMEONE WHO HASN'T

BEEN FOLLOWING CHRIST,

BUT THIS IS SOMEONE WHO

HAS BEEN A FAITHFUL

FOLLOWER OF CHRIST.

AND SHE WAS LOOKING AT

THE TELEVISION CRYING

OUT TO GOD, NEVER

LETTING IT GO OF HER

FAITH AND SHE GOT

AHOLD OF GOD AND

THOSE--THOSE VERY VEINS

THAT WERE IN HER

KIDNEYS THAT--THAT

NEEDED TO BE FUSED

TOGETHER, THAT NEEDED

TO BE SURGICALLY

CONNECTED NOW WERE

FUSED TOGETHER

SUPERNATURALLY AT 11:59

BEFORE THE SURGERY. IT

REMINDS ME WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS, THE WISEST

MAN, IN ECCLESIASTES

CHAPTER 9, IT SAYS, "AND I

RETURNED AND SAW

SOMETHING UNDER THE

SUN. THE RACE IS NOT TO

THE SWIFT, NOR IS THE

BATTLE TO THE STRONG

NOR BREAD TO THE WISE

NOR RICH RICHES TO MEN

OF UNDERSTANDING." AND

I LOVE THIS ONE, "NOR

FAVOR TO MEN OF SKILL."

DID YOU GET THAT? THE

FAVOR OF GOD THAT'S ON

YOU, IF YOU'VE BEEN

FOLLOWING GOD FOR SUCH

A LONG TIME, FAVOR IS

NOT FAIR BECAUSE FAVOR

COMES BY GRACE. IT

DOESN'T COME BY SKILL

NOR FAVOR TO MEN OF

SKILL. BUT LOOK WHAT IT

SAYS RIGHT HERE. "LIKE

FISH TAKEN IN A CRUEL

NET, LIKE BIRDS CAUGHT

IN A SNARE. SO THE SONS

OF MEN ARE SNARED IN AN

EVIL TIME." THINGS

HAPPEN IN OTHER WORDS.

IT HAPPENS TO YOU, IT

HAPPENS TO ME. BUT

THAT'S NOT THE TIME TO

LET GO OF YOUR FAITH

LIKE LEE RAY, THAT'S THE

TIME WHEN YOU GET THAT

PIT BULL, (MAKES NOISE)

AND SAY JESUS, I BELIEVE

YOU NOW AND I SHALL

LIVE AND NOT DIE AND

DECLARE THE WORKS OF

THE LORD. SOMEBODY, I

KNOW YOUR FAITH JUST

STOOD UP TO ATTENTION.

UM-HUM. IT REALLY

DID. AND YOU KNOW

WHAT? WHEN BRIAN DID

THAT (MAKES NOISE)

YOU'VE GOT TO GET THAT

TENACITY INSIDE OF YOU.

YOU'VE GOT TO LET THAT

FAITH RISE UP. YOU'VE

GOTTEN SOME KIND OF,

YOU KNOW, DOCTOR'S

WORD THAT THERE IS NO

HOPE.

YEAH.

THERE'S SOMETHING

THAT'S GOING ON THAT IS

BIGGER THAN YOU. THAT

IS WHEN GOD STEPS IN. HE

IS POWERFUL. HE IS

MIRACULOUS. AND WE

WILL JOIN OUR FAITH WITH

YOURS TO SEE YOUR

MIRACLE COME ABOUT.

AMEN. I'M GOING TO

PRAY RIGHT NOW BUT

YEAH, AND THAT'S WHY

WE'RE HERE AT THE 70

CLUB CANADA. WE

BELIEVE THAT WE'VE BEEN

GIVEN A SPECIAL WINDOW

OF OPPORTUNITY IN THIS

SEASON TO DO EXACTLY

WHAT WE'RE DOING. BUT

I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO

CALL AND ASK FOR THIS

PARTICULAR, UH,

RESOURCE: FAITH. I NEED

MY FAITH STIRRED, LAURA-

LYNN NEEDS HER FAITH

STIRRED. BUT NOW WE'RE

GOING TO JOIN TOGETHER

AND LIKE (MAKES NOISE).

YES.

LIKE JUST CABLES THAT

JUST ALLOW THE POWER

OF GOD TO COME IN.

FATHER, FOR THAT MAN

AND THAT WOMAN, I

DECLARE THE FAVOR OF

GOD IS UPON THEM. LET IT

NOW, LORD, ELECTRIFY

THEIR SPIRIT, LET THEIR

FAITH STAND UP TO

ATTENTION AND NOW

WHATEVER THAT SPIRIT OF

DISCOURAGEMENT AND

LORD THAT SPIRIT OF

INTIMIDATION, WE BREAK

IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

AND I DECLARE THEY

SHALL LIVE AND NOT DIE

AND DECLARE THE WORKS

OF THE LORD. IN JESUS'

NAME.

HMM, AMEN. IF YOU

JUST PRAYED THAT WITH

BRIAN--WITH BRIAN,

WOULD YOU GIVE US A

CALL AT 1-855-759-0700. WE

WOULD LOVE TO JOIN OUR

FAITH WITH YOURS.

IT'S THE FAVOR OF GOD.

UM-HUM.

TOO OFTEN, WE CARRY

BAGGAGE FROM OUR PAST.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S

LIKE. IT AFFECTS

EVERYTHING AND

EVERYONE IN OUR LIVES.

IT'S ALWAYS THERE,

WEIGHING US DOWN AND

KEEPING US FROM

ACHIEVING TRUE

HAPPINESS. BUT DO YOU

KNOW GOD NEVER MEANT

FOR US TO BE TRAPPED IN

THE PAST? YOU CAN BE

FREE OF YOUR BAGGAGE.

LEARN HOW GOD'S

FORGIVENESS LEADS TO

CHANGED LIVES AND NEW

BEGINNINGS. CALL THE 700

CLUB.

(MUSIC)

THERE'S A STORY I LOVE

IN THE BOOK OF LUKE

WHEN JESUS TOLD PETER

TO PUT HIS FISHING NET

DOWN INTO THE DEEP

WATERS. PETER WAS

EXHAUSTED. HE--HE HAD

BEEN OUT ALL NIGHT AND

YET HAD NOT CAUGHT ONE

FISH. BUT IN LUKE 5:5,

PETER SAID, "BUT ON THE

GROUND OF YOUR WORD, I

WILL LOWER THE NETS

AGAIN." HE MEANT, THIS

DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

I'VE ALREADY TRIED IT. I

KNOW HOW TO FISH. I

HAVE A LOT OF

KNOWLEDGE AND

EXPERIENCE IN THIS AREA.

AND IT DIDN'T WORK

WHEN I TRIED IT. BUT

BECAUSE YOU SAY SO, I'LL

DO IT BECAUSE YOU SAY

SO. ONE WORD FROM

JESUS CHANGES

EVERYTHING. HAVE YOU

ALREADY TRIED TO DO

SOMETHING IN YOUR OWN

STRENGTH WITH YOUR

OWN EXPERIENCE AND

WISDOM AND IT JUST

DIDN'T WORK? WHAT

WOULD YOU DO IF JESUS

SAID TRY IT AGAIN? DO IT

ONE MORE TIME BECAUSE

THIS TIME IT'S NOT BY

YOUR MIGHT AND IT'S NOT

BY YOUR POWER, BUT IT

WILL BE BY MY SPIRIT

THAT IT WILL COME TO

PASS. ABOUT THE TIME

THAT YOU HAVE

EXHAUSTED EVERYTHING

YOU KNOW TO DO, JESUS

STEPS IN AND HE BRINGS

ABOUT YOUR GREATEST

ACCOMPLISHMENT. LUKE 5

VERSE 6 SAYS THEY

CAUGHT A GREAT NUMBER

OF FISH AND AS THEIR

NETS WERE AT THE POINT

OF BREAKING, THEY

SIGNAL TO THEIR

PARTNERS IN THE OTHER

BOATS TO COME, TAKE

HOLD WITH THEM AND

THEY CAME AND THEY

FILLED BOTH THE BOATS

SO THAT THEY BEGAN TO

SINK. WHEN JESUS DOES

THAT THING THAT ONLY

HE CAN DO, YOU ARE

GOING TO NEED AN ARMY

TO HELP YOU PULL IN THE

HAUL. YOU ARE GOING TO

NEED HELP TO GET THE JOB

DONE. THAT YOU ONCE

WERE MORE THAN ENOUGH

TO DO ON YOUR OWN.

PEOPLE WILL COME

RUNNING AS YOU SAY I

DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED, BUT JESUS

TOLD ME TO DO THIS JUST

ONE MORE TIME AND NOW

I CAN'T BEAR THE WEIGHT

OF THE SUCCESS ON MY

OWN. THE STORY GOES ON

TO SAY THAT WHEN SIMON

PETER SAW THIS, HE FELL

DOWN AT JESUS' KNEES

SAYING, "DEPART FROM ME

FOR I AM A SINFUL MAN OH

LORD." HE WAS GRIPPED

WITH BEWILDERING

AMAZEMENT AND ALL

WHO WERE WITH HIM AT

THE HAUL OF FISH WHICH

THEY HAD MADE. WHEN

JESUS, WHEN HE STEPS IN,

HE IS GOING TO DO SUCH A

PROFOUND AND GREAT

WORK WITH YOUR TALENT

AND YOUR ABILITY. HE IS

GOING TO SHOW OFF THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

WHAT YOU CAN DO

WITHOUT HIM AND HOW

MUCH MORE YOU CAN DO

WITH HIM. IT'S GOING TO

MAKE YOU FALL DOWN ON

YOUR KNEES BEFORE GOD

ALMIGHTY IN WORSHIP

AND IN AWESTRUCK

WONDER OF WHAT HE IS

CAPABLE OF. LIKE PETER,

WE'LL FEEL UNWORTHY OF

CHRIST'S INTERVENTION IN

OUR LIVES. IT CAN'T HELP

BUT HIGHLIGHT OUR OWN

HUMANITY AND FAILINGS.

BUT JESUS, HE DOESN'T

NEED YOU TO BE PERFECT,

HE NEEDS YOU TO BE

OBEDIENT AND THEN JUST

STAND BACK IN

BREATHLESS WONDER AT

WHAT HE DOES.

SO GOOD LAURA-LYNN.

YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVE

ABOUT THIS TESTIMONY IS

PETER WAS THE HEAD OF A

FISHING COMPANY AND HE

NEEDED HELP. HE KNEW

REALLY HOW TO EMPLOY

MEN, BUT HE NEEDED HELP

TO BRING IN THIS CATCH

AND HE KNEW THAT HE

WAS A SINFUL MAN, I

CAN'T TAKE CARE OF THIS

BLESSING. I DON'T KNOW

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF A

BLESSING LIKE THIS. I BET

THE SAME THING IS

HAPPENING WITH YOU. IF

YOU TRUST GOD NOW, YOU

CAN CALL THE NUMBER ON

SCREEN AND SAY GOD,

TODAY I TURN THIS OVER

AND I STOP TRYING, I

START TRUSTING, WATCH

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.

WELL, UP NEXT, MORE

BIBLE SECRETS EXPOSED

WITH JOE AMORAL.

SOMETIMES THINGS

HAPPEN IN THE BIBLE AND

WE DON'T ALWAYS

UNDERSTAND WHY THEY

HAPPEN. WE READ WHAT

MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE,

AND JOHN WRITE AND WE

JUST, YOU KNOW, WE TAKE

IT FOR GRANTED. HEY, IT

HAPPENED THIS WAY AND

WE JUST TAKE IT. BUT A

LOT OF TIMES WE DON'T

FACTOR IN THE

BACKGROUND, THE

CULTURE, THE RELIGION,

THE RELIGION, THE

TRADITIONS, ALL THE

THINGS GOING ON. FOR

INSTANCE, WHY DOES

JESUS COME INTO

JERUSALEM? WHY DOES

HE COME INTO THE

EASTERN GATE? WE'RE

GOING TO TALK ABOUT

THAT IN AN UPCOMING

SEGMENT. AND WHY DOES

HE RIDE A DONKEY? EVEN

HIS--HIS CHOICE OF HIS

METHOD OF

TRANSPORTATION

ACTUALLY HAS MEANING

TO IT AND A LOT OF TIMES

WE DON'T EVEN PAY

ATTENTION TO THAT. NOW

I GO TO ISRAEL ALL THE

TIME AND MY GROUPS

ALWAYS COME WITH ME

TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES

AND, UM, FOR A FEW

BUCKS YOU CAN PAY A

GUY, HE'LL GIVE YOU A

CAMEL RIDE AND THEN

THERE'S ANOTHER GUY

WHO ALWAYS COMES

THAT THIS--THIS DEAR

MUSLIM BROTHER, HE

COMES UP WITH THIS OLD

DONKEY WHO I THINK IS

FROM THE TIME OF JESUS

AND HE SAYS, HEY, WHO

WANTS TO TAKE A RIDE ON

THE JESUS TAXI? WHY

DOES HE SAY THAT?

BECAUSE EVERYBODY

KNOWS THAT JESUS RODE

A DONKEY BUT WHY A

DONKEY? THERE--THERE--

THERE WERE RULES THAT

WERE SET IN THE FIRST

CENTURY. ISRAEL IS IN

THE HEART OF THE MIDDLE

EAST AND THERE'S

NATIONS TO THE NORTH,

TO THE SOUTH, TO THE

EAST THAT ARE ALWAYS

AT WAR WITH EACH OTHER

AND THEY ALWAYS WANT

TO FIGHT. SO WHAT IF

YOU'RE A PERSON WHO

LIVES IN ISRAEL, YOU'RE IN

JERUSALEM, YOU COME

OUT OF THE CITY DOING

YOUR SHOPPING AND YOU

LOOK WAY UP IN THE

HORIZON AND THERE'S A

GREAT ARMY. YOU WANT

TO ASK YOURSELF A

QUESTION. IS THAT ARMY

COMING TO ATTACK US OR

ARE THEY JUST PASSING

THROUGH? ARE THEY

GOING TO REFUEL THEIR

ANIMALS? ARE THEY

GOING TO HAVE A NIGHT

OF REST AND THEN GO

ALONG AND ATTACK

SOMEWHERE ELSE? SO

THEY PUT IN PLACE THIS

RULE: IF YOU WERE A KING

AND YOU WERE COMING

JUST TO REFUEL BUT YOU

WEREN'T ACTUALLY

COMING TO ATTACK

ISRAEL, AS A SIGN TO THE

PEOPLE, YOU WOULD COME

RIDING ON A DONKEY ON A

MISSION OF PEACE. LOOK

AT ZECHARIAH CHAPTER 9

VERSE 9, "REJOICE

GREATLY DAUGHTER OF

ZION, SHOUT DAUGHTER OF

JERUSALEM. SEE YOUR

KING COMES TO YOU

RIGHTEOUS AND

VICTORIOUS, LOWLY, AND

RIDING ON A DONKEY ON A

COLT, THE FOAL OF A

DONKEY." SO IF YOU CAME

OUT OF THE CITY AND

THERE WAS A KING RIDING

A DONKEY AND YOU SAID

OH, THANK YOU, LORD,

THEY'RE NOT HERE TO

ATTACK US. BUT WHAT IF

THAT KING WAS THERE TO

ATTACK YOU? WHAT IF

YOU CAME OUT OF THE

CITY AND THE KING

WASN'T SITTING ON A

DONKEY? SO IF THE KING

WAS COME TO GO MAKE

WAR AGAINST THE CITY, IF

HE WAS COME TO GO MAKE

WAR AGAINST THE

COUNTRY, THE KING

WOULD ALWAYS COME

AHEAD RIDING ON A

HORSE. LOOK AT

REVELATION CHAPTER 19

VERSE 11. IT SAYS, "I SAW

HEAVEN STANDING OPEN

AND THERE BEFORE ME

WAS" WHAT? "A WHITE

HORSE WHOSE RIDER IS

CALLED FAITHFUL AND

TRUE. WITH JUSTICE HE

JUDGES AND HE WAGERS

OR MAKES WAR." AND A

LOT OF TIMES WE READ IT

AND THAT HIS FIRST

COMING, HE RODE ON A

DONKEY AND THE SECOND

TIME HE'S COMING ON A

HORSE. WHAT'S WITH ALL

THE ANIMALS? WE DON'T

FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY

HE MAKES THOSE CHOICES,

BUT AS WE UNDERSTAND

THE CULTURE OF THE

TIMES, YOU SEE HOW

MUCH SENSE IT MAKES?

THE FIRST TIME JESUS

CAME, HE CAME ON A

MISSION OF PEACE. BUT

THE NEXT TIME HE COMES,

HE COMES TO JUDGE AND

MAKE WAR.

(MUSIC)

THAT IS SO COOL. I

HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING

THAT AS MUCH AS WE ARE.

THE KINGLY ENTRANCE.

(MUSIC)

WELCOME BACK. UP

NEXT, AFTER YEARS OF

BATTLING AN EATING

DISORDER, FAYTINE

GRAZEKI FINALLY FINDS A

WAY OUT.

WELL, I WENT TO

CHURCH BECAUSE MOM

AND DAD BROUGHT ME TO

CHURCH AND THEY WERE

AWESOME. BUT I CAN

REMEMBER BEING BORED.

I CAN REMEMBER KIND OF

FEELING THAT GENERAL

DISCONNECT BETWEEN,

UH, WHAT WAS BEING SAID

AND KIND OF WHAT WAS

GOING THROUGH MY

BRAIN AND I COULDN'T

REALLY RELATE TO SORT

OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING

AROUND ME IN A CHURCH

CONTEXT. AND SO, YOU

KNOW, I THINK

EVENTUALLY IF

SOMETHING DOESN'T

REALLY CONNECT WITH

YOU, IF IT DOESN'T REALLY

FEEL RELEVANT, THEN YOU

JUST END UP KIND OF

WALKING AWAY. WELL, I

THINK THERE'S A, UH,

GENERAL NEED THAT WE

ALL HAVE TO BE LOVED

AND TO BE ACCEPTED.

AND TO BE AFFIRMED AND

I THINK PROBABLY FOR

MOST OF US, WE SPEND

MOST OF OUR LIFE, YOU

KNOW, TRYING TO FIND

THAT--THAT PLACE OF

ACCEPTANCE AND FOR ME,

WHEN I WAS IN GRADE 7, I

HAD A BIT OF A CRISIS

POINT WHERE, UM, I WAS

BULLIED FOR AN ENTIRE

YEAR. YOU KNOW, THAT

KIND OF STUFF

COMPOUNDS AND, YOU

KNOW, EVENTUALLY, BY

THE TIME I WAS IN GRADE

8, GRADE 9, YOU KNOW, I

WAS JUST LOOKING, I WAS

STARVED FOR APPROVAL.

UM, AND ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT I BELIEVED,

YOU KNOW, I THINK IT WAS

JUST SUBLIMINALLY OUT

THERE OBVIOUSLY

THROUGH THE MEDIA WAS

THAT IF I WAS BEAUTIFUL

THAT I WOULD BE

ACCEPTED. AND SO I

DEVELOPED IN GRADE 8,

GRADE 9 A REALLY SEVERE

EATING DISORDER

ANOREXIA. AND I WAS

ACTUALLY AT A TIME

WHERE NOBODY WAS EVEN

TALKING ABOUT IT. I

DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

ANOREXIA WAS. IT

ACTUALLY DEVELOPED

INTO BULIMIA, BUT IT WAS

ALL ON THIS INTENSE

QUEST FOR APPROVAL.

UM, YOU KNOW,

EVENTUALLY I STARTED

HAVING, UH, IMMORAL

RELATIONSHIPS AND, YOU

KNOW, LOOKING FOR LOVE

IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES

WHICH IN SOME WAY IS

JUST A NATURAL THING IF

YOU DON'T KNOW GOD.

YOU'RE--YOU'RE GOING TO

LOOK FOR THOSE--THAT

WAY TO FILL THAT VOID

AND I WAS DEFINITELY

THROWING ALL MY

ENERGY INTO TRY TO FIND

SOME SENSE OF SECURITY.

YOU KNOW, AND THAT

OBVIOUSLY LED TO THE

EATING DISORDER. I HID

THE EATING DISORDER

PRETTY GOOD, UH, FOR

SEVERAL MONTHS. BUT,

YOU KNOW, I WAS ABOUT

5'4, 5'5 AND PRETTY SOON I

WAS PRESSING 90, 95

POUNDS SO YOU CAN ONLY

HIDE THAT FOR SO LONG,

RIGHT? AND I BEGAN

SLOWING DOWN, I WAS IN

A LOT OF SPORTS AND

STUFF. PEOPLE BEGAN TO

NOTICE IT LIKE ON THE ICE

AND ON THE COURTS AND

STUFF. AND SO, YOU

KNOW, EVENTUALLY

PEOPLE FIGURED IT OUT

AND STARTED

CONTACTING MY PARENTS,

AND, UH, YOU KNOW,

AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS, I

DON'T KNOW EXACTLY

HOW LONG, PROBABLY

PRESSING A YEAR, YOU

KNOW, THEY CONFRONTED

ME AND, YOU KNOW, I HAD

TO BE HONEST AND SAY,

YEAH, I'VE BEEN, YOU

KNOW, A LITTLE BIT

OBSESSIVE ABOUT THIS

AND BY THAT POINT, I WAS

ACTUALLY ALREADY

THROWING UP AND

BINGING AND PURGING,

UM, SO IT WAS PRETTY OUT

OF CONTROL AND

UNDENIABLE.

(MUSIC)

BY THE TIME I

GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL,

I THINK I ACTUALLY WAS A

WALKING CONTRADICTION

BECAUSE, ON THE OUTSIDE,

I LOOKED REALLY PUT

TOGETHER BUT ON THE

INSIDE, HONESTLY, I--I WAS

A MESS. AND I KNEW THAT

SOMETHING WAS MISSING.

AND I KNEW THAT, YOU

KNOW, THE LIFESTYLE I

WAS LIVING, ESPECIALLY

IN--IN REFERENCE TO THE

EATING DISORDER, IT WAS

JUST A BIG FAÇADE, YOU

KNOW? AND, AND BY THE

TIME I WAS IN MY FIRST,

SECOND YEAR OF

UNIVERSITY, UM, YOU

KNOW, ALL OF THE

SECURITIES OF LIVING AT

HOME, BEING IN A

FAMILIAR ENVIRONMENT

IN A SMALL TOWN, YOU

KNOW, I HAD, YOU KNOW,

EVERYTHING AT THAT

POINT WAS KIND OF

STRIPPED AWAY. AND I

WAS FACED WITH THE

REALITY OF WHO I WAS

UNDERNEATH MY SKIN.

AND I KNEW THAT

UNDERNEATH MY SKIN, I

WAS, UM, A PERSON WHO

DESPERATELY NEEDED

SOMETHING MORE.

(MUSIC)

AND THEN THERE WAS

THE DREAM THAT I HAD.

YOU KNOW, WHEN I

SURRENDERED MY LIFE TO

JESUS, YOU KNOW,

EVERYTHING CHANGED.

UH, YOU KNOW, I STEPPED

OUT OF MY OLD SKIN INTO-

-INTO THIS NEW PERSON

REALITY. I LITERALLY

BECAME A NEW PERSON.

BUT THE ONE THING THAT

CONTINUED TO REALLY

HARASS ME I'LL SAY OR

REALLY BIND ME WAS THE

EATING DISORDER. AND

THAT NIGHT WHEN I HAD

THE DREAM, LITERALLY,

UM, THE FATHER CAME TO

ME IN THIS DREAM AND HE

BEGAN TO SPEAK TO ME

ABOUT HIS PLANS FOR MY

LIFE. I'VE SHOWED YOU

THE PLANS THAT I HAVE

FOR YOU DECLARES THE

LORD. UM, BUT THEN HE

BEGAN TO SPEAK TO ME

ABOUT HOW IF I WAS

TRULY GOING TO STEP

INTO EVERYTHING THAT

HE HAD FOR ME, THEN I

NEEDED TO STEP OUT OF

THE COMPROMISE OF

GOING TO FOOD FOR

COMFORT INSTEAD OF TO

HIM. IT WASN'T UNTIL THE

POWER OF GOD AND I

WANT TO SAY THIS, THE

POWER OF GOD'S TRUTH

HIT ME IN THAT DREAM

ENCOUNTER WHERE I

REALIZED THAT JESUS HAD

PAID THE PRICE FOR MY

FREEDOM. YOU KNOW, SO

THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO, I

JUST HAD TO START

WALKING IN IT. AND SO

WHERE COUNSELORS JUST

COULDN'T DO IT, WHERE

MY OWN EVEN DESIRE, MY

OWN PERSONAL

WILLPOWER VOID OF

GOD'S GRACE AND

EMPOWERMENT, YOU

KNOW? JUST COULDN'T

CUT IT. YOU KNOW, THE

PRESENCE OF GOD AND

THE LOVE OF GOD WAS

ABLE TO SET ME FREE

WHEN NOTHING ELSE

COULD. ENCOUNTERING

GOD CHANGES

EVERYTHING. IT'S LIKE IT

RESETS YOUR COMPASS. IF

YOU DON'T TRULY KNOW

GOD, YOU WILL

INTUITIVELY LIVE YOUR

LIFE FOR SELF

SATISFACTION. AND WHEN

YOU MEET GOD AND YOU

KNOW HIS LOVE, THERE IS

NO COMPETITION. AND I

CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT

I'M DONE, I'M TOAST. AND

NOBODY CAN CONVINCE

ME THAT I HAVEN'T MET

THIS MAN NAMED JESUS

BECAUSE I DID. AND HE'S

REAL.

I KNOW THAT THERE IS

SOMEONE WATCHING

RIGHT NOW AND THIS

STORY HAS HIT HOME.

PERHAPS YOU'RE

STRUGGLING WITH

BULIMIA OR ANOREXIA

AND YOU'VE HIT A WALL,

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO

GET PAST IT. YOU'RE

STRUGGLING WITH ALL

THOSE FEELINGS SHE HAD,

YOU KNOW, AM I WORTHY?

WHO'S GOING TO LOVE ME?

FEELINGS OF BEING

REJECTED. I'M NOT

BEAUTIFUL ENOUGH. LET

ME TELL YOU WHAT THE--

THE BIBLE SAYS AND I--I

PRAY THAT AS I SPEAK

THESE WORDS, THAT IT

WASHES OVER YOU LIKE

RAIN, LIKE HEALING RAIN

OVER YOUR SOUL. YOU

NEED TO KNOW

SOMETHING TODAY THAT

GOD LOVES YOU. THE

WORD OF GOD SAYS IN

ROMANS 8:35 "WHO SHALL

SEPARATE US FROM THE

LOVE OF CHRIST? SHALL

SUFFERING AND

AFFLICTION AND

TRIBULATION OR

CALAMITY OR DISTRESS OR

PERSECUTION, HUNGER, OR

DESTITUTION, PERIL, OR

SWORD." VERSE 37, "YET

AMID ALL THESE THINGS,

WE ARE MORE THAN

CONQUERORS AND GAIN A

SURPASSING VICTORY

THROUGH CHRIST WHO

LOVED US." TODAY HE

LOVES YOU. HE LOVES

YOU IF YOU HEAR NOTHING

ELSE FROM THIS PROGRAM,

WOULD YOU HEAR THAT

HE LOVES YOU. HE IS HERE

TO HEAL YOU. HE HAS

SEEN YOU IN YOUR

BROKENNESS AND YOU

KNOW WHAT? IT DOESN'T

MATTER. HE ACCEPTS YOU

JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

AND HE IS HERE TO DO A

PHENOMENAL WORK IN

YOUR LIFE.

LYNN WAS RIGHT AND ONE

OF THE THINGS I LOVE

GOD HAS GONE ON TO, UH,

DO POWERFUL THINGS FOR

THE LORD. AND IT'S

ZEAL THAT'S INSIDE OF

HER AS WELL.
