John Calhoun: The Feet of the Saints

John suffered with a severe athlete’s foot condition until a prayer on the 700 Club made a difference. Read Transcript


I WOULD LAY IN BED AT

NIGHT AND LOOK AT MY HAND

AND ASK THE QUESTION, WHERE

DID I COME FROM?

I WOULD QUESTION IT SO

DEEPLY, BUT I DIDN'T HAVE

THE ANSWER.

NO ONE WAS THERE TO TELL

ME.

I DESPERATELY WAS

SEARCHING.

Reporter: JOHN CALHOUN

CAME FROM A BROKEN HOME.

EVEN AT 16, HE WANTED MORE

OUT OF LIFE.

HE TRIED DRUGS AND ALCOHOL,

EVEN THE OCCULT.

I WAS HOLDING A BOOK IN

MY HAND ABOUT ASTRO

PROJECTION.

AND SUDDENLY I BLINKED MY

EYES AND THE NEXT THING YOU

KNOW, I BEGAN TO DPOA

THROUGH THE ROOF AND OVER

THE TOP OF THE HOUSE AND WAS

LITERALLY LEAVING THE

EARTH.

I REMEMBER GOING INTO OUTER

BLACKNESS.

I WAS BEING CATAPULTED

BACKWARDS AT A GREAT RATE OF

SPEED.

I WAS FASCINATED AT FIRST,

AND THEN FEAR OVERCAME ME.

IT WAS FEAR YOU COULD TASTE;

FEAR YOU COULD TOUCH.

AND I SCREAMED OUT FOR

HELP.

IT SEEMED AS IF SOMETHING

WAS PULLING ME INTO A PIT OF

DARKNESS.

THEN I HEARD A VOICE SAY

JESUS, AND MY MOTHER HAD

SEEN THIS TAKING PLACE.

SHE SAID MY EYES WERE ROLLED

BACK IN MY HEAD.

AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

SHE GRABBED AHOLD OF ME.

SHE SLAPPED ME ON THE FACE.

Reporter: HIS ENCOUNTER

WITH THE SUPER NATURAL

FRIGHTENED HIM.

IT MADE JOHN WANT TO

UNDERSTAND, IS THERE MORE TO

THIS LIFE?

WERE HEAVEN AND HELL REAL.

JOHN HAD A PAPER ROUTE.

WHILE FOLDING PAPERS ONE

MORNING, HE CAME ACROSS "THE

700 CLUB."

PAT BEGAN TO TALK ABOUT YOU

CAN BE SAVED BY JUST

ACCEPTING WHAT JESUS DID ON

THE CROSS, NOT BY GOOD WORKS

OR BEING RELIGIOUS.

AND I WAS AMAZED TO KNOW

THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO EARN

GOD'S LOVE.

THAT JUST BLEW MY MIND, THAT

YOU COULD JUST ASK JESUS TO

COME INTO YOUR HEART, AND

THAT'S ALL HE NEEDED FOR

ME.

AND SO I ASKED HIM INTO MY

HEART THAT DAY.

GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT CAME INTO

THE ROOM AND FILLED THAT

VOID UP THAT WAS ON THE

INSIDE OF ME.

AND A PEACE THAT PASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING CAME INTO MY

HEART.

AND I KNEW THAT I WAS

SAVED.

Reporter: LATER IN THE

PROGRAM, PAT ROBERTSON

PRAYED FOR HEALING, AND HAD

A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE THAT GOT

JOHN'S ATTENTION.

AND PAT SAID, SOMEONE HAS

AN ONGOING PROBLEM WITH YOUR

FEET.

IT IS VERY PAINFUL.

I REMEMBER HE SAID IT IS

LIKE THERE ARE SCABS ON YOUR

FEET AND THEY'RE BLEEDING,

AND THEY'RE VERY PAINFUL.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Reporter: FOR YEARS,

THE TEEN HAD BEEN BATTLING A

PROBLEM WITH HIS FEET.

NO MEDICINE SEEMED TO HELP.

I HAD THE CHRONIC FOOT

PROBLEM THAT YOU COULD SAY

WAS ATHLETES FEET, BUT IT

WASN'T JUST IN ONE SPOT OR

TWO.

IT COVERED MY FEET.

IT GOT TO WHERE THE LAST

COUPLE OF DAYS, I COULDN'T

EVEN WEAR A SHOE.

I WAS DESPERATE.

IT WAS PAINFUL.

THE NEXT MORNING I WOKE UP,

AND THEN I LOOKED DOWN AT MY

FEET, AND THEY WERE LIKE A

NEWBORN BABY'S SKIN, JUST

PERFECT, ABSOLUTELY,

INSTANTANEOUSLY, TOTALLY

HEALED.

I THINK GOD WANTED TO

REASSURE ME HE HEARD MY

PRAYER OF SALVATION BY

SHOWING ME WHAT HE DID ON

THE OUTSIDE.

GOD WAS SAYING, IF I CAN DO

THIS ON THE OUTSIDE, THIS IS

WHAT I CAN DO ON THE INSIDE.
