GOT A GATOR PROBLEM?

THESE ARE THE GUYS YOU

CALL.

MY NAME IS PAUL, AND I AM

NOT CRAZY.

Lee: THE STORY OF

ANIMAL PLANET'S GATOR BOYS

SHARES HOW AND WHY HE

WRANGLES THE BEASTS.

PLUS, HARNESS THE POWER OF

MIRACLES.

Pat: NOTHING WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU.

Lee: USING THE LAWS OF

THE SECRET KINGDOM.

Pat: MOUNTAIN MOVE,

DEBT GO OUT OF THE WAY,

MARRIAGE BE RESTORED.

Lee: TODAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IF YOU LISTEN TO THE NOISE

COMING OUT OF THE WHITE

HOUSE, TOMORROW ASTEROIDS

WILL HIT, THE STARS WILL GO

IN ALIGNMENT, GREAT FLOODS

WILL COME UPON THE EARTH,

THE SEAS WILL ROYAL, AND

PEOPLE WILL DIE BY THE

THOUSANDS, AND THOUSANDS OF

IMMIGRANTS WILL BE RELEASED

FROM PRISON TO PILLAGE AND

RAMPAGE ACROSS THE FACE OF

THE EARTH.

THAT'S JUST THE START.

BUT WHAT IF NOTHING

HAPPENS?

IT JUST IS A NON-EVENT.

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SCARED

OF, THAT WHEN THIS SEQUESTER

HAPPENS, NOTHING GOES ON.

Terry: AND THERE IS

EVEN A LITTLE BACKTRACKING

FROM THE PRESIDENT, SAYING

"MANY OF YOU MAY NOT

NOTICE," MANY OF YOU MAY,

BUT MANY OF YOU MAY NOT.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT BOB WOODWARD,

FROM WOODWARD AND BERNSTEIN,

IN THE THINGS WITH NIXON,

AND WATERGATE.

HE IS GOING AFTER THE

PRESIDENT PRETTY HARD

BECAUSE HE DOESN'T THINK

HE

IS BEING SQUARE WITH THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

ANYHOW, WE'LL GET TO ALL OF

THAT, AND PLUS OUR

DISTINGUISHED CO-HOSTESS,

BEAUTIFUL LADY, IS GOING TO

WRESTLE A GATOR.

Terry: WELL, NOT

EXACTLY.

BUT I AM GOING TO TALK TO

SOMEONE WHO WRESTLES

GATORS.

Pat: YOU WILL HAVE THE

GATOR.

Terry: WELL, I'LL LOOK

AT THE GATOR, MAYBE PET THE

GATOR IF HE SAYS IT IS SAFE

TO DO THAT.

HE IS BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: THEY MAKE NICE

SHOES.

Terry: BUT THAT'S NOT

WHAT WE'RE GOING TO BE

DOING.

Pat: THIS IS A GUY WHO

SAVES GATORS.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE GATOR.

BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THE UNITED

STATES, BY THE WAY, IS GOING

TO START HELPING THE REBELS

IN SYRIA.

THE CIVIL WAR THERE HAS BEEN

GOING NEARLY TWO YEARS.

70,000 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

KILLED.

Terry: THOUSANDS MORE

HAVE BEEN HURT OR HAD TO

LEAVE THEIR HOMES, AND NOW

CHURCHES ARE REACHING OUT TO

HELP THE THESE REFUGEES.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: OSAMA IS ONE

OF 6,000 REFUGEES.

THE SITUATION IN SYRIA IS

VERY BAD, VERY DANGEROUS.

PRESIDENT ASSAD DESTROYED

EVERYTHING.

HE DESTROYED HOMES.

I LIVE IN HOMES.

HE DESTROYED THE CITY, AND

MOST OF THEM HAVE NO WORK,

NO FOOD, NO WATER, NO

ELECTRICITY.

THEY ARE IN A BAD SITUATION

NOW.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

THE U.N., THESE REFUGEES ARE

SPREAD ACROSS TURKEY,

LEBANON, AND JORDAN.

NOW SOME OF THOSE REFUGEES

AND THEIR CHILDREN ARE

FINDING RELIEF.

SOME CHURCHES IN JORDAN ARE

TRYING TO REDEEM THE TRAGEDY

IN SYRIA.

AND MANY OF THESE SYRIAN

REFUGEES ARE EXPERIENCING

THE LOVE OF CHRISTIANS FOR

THE VERY FIRST TIME.

THIS PASTOR REACHES OUT TO

HUNDREDS OF THESE REFUGEES.

IT IS DANGEROUS WORK, SO WE

HID HIS IDENTITY FOR

SECURITY REASONS.

TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO

SHOW THE LIGHT INSIDE THE

DARKNESS.

THE PEOPLE GO OUTSIDE SYRIA,

AND THEY'RE HOPELESS, AND

ALSO, BEFORE THEY DIDN'T

HAVE A CHANCE TO LISTEN

ABOUT THE GOSPEL, ABOUT

JESUS.

BUT RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A

CHANCE TO SHOW THEM THE LOVE

AND NURSING AND OUR FAITH

THROUGH WHAT WE DO FOR

THEM.

Reporter: THEIR HELP

INCLUDES HOT MEALS, CHURCH

SERVICES FOR THE CHILDREN,

AND CLOTHES FOR FAMILIES WHO

OFTEN HAVE NOTHING BUT WHAT

IS ON THEIR BACKS.

SOME OF THESE CHILDREN WENT

FROM CONDITIONS LIKE THIS TO

THIS.

[YELLING]

Reporter: AND THERE ARE

OPPORTUNITIES TO TALK WITH

SOMEONE ABOUT THEIR

SITUATION.

MANY OF THESE MUSLIMS WOMEN,

SOME NOW WIDOWED, WOULD NOT

HAVE STEPPED INSIDE A CHURCH

IN SYRIA.

IT IS AGAINST THE LAW FOR

ANYBODY TO TALK WITH THEM

ABOUT JESUS.

BUT HERE BECAUSE THEY ARE IN

NEED -- AND WE DON'T WANT TO

SAY WE ARE USING THEIR

NEEDS, BUT WHILE WE ARE

FEEDING THEM AND TAKING CARE

OF THEM, THERE IS

OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THE

LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS MORE

IMPORTANT THAN THE FOOD AND

THAN THE CLOTHING.

SO WE ARE CARING ABOUT THEIR

SOULS AS WE CARE ABOUT THEIR

BODIES.

Reporter: IT'S A

MINISTRY OSAMA APPRECIATES.

WE NEED IT.

IT IS GOOD FOR US RIGHT NOW

BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY

WORK.

WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN

GET.

IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE FOR US

RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, JORDAN.

Pat: THAT SITUATION IS

VERY VOLATILE, AND IT IS

HARD TO UNDERSTAND.

THE RULING POWER IN SYRIA,

THEY ARE ALAWITES, AND IT'S

A SOME SECT WHO, I GUESS,

WOULD BE ASSOCIATED WITH

SOME OF THE LEADERS IN THE

ARAB WORLD.

THE SAUDIS ARE BACKING THE

OPPOSITION.

THE IRANIANS ARE UNDOUBTEDLY

BACKING THE SYRIANS IN

PART.

AND ARE WE GOING TO BE

GIVING WEAPONS TO THOSE WHO

WILL ULTIMATELY BE OUR

ENEMIES?

WE DON'T QUITE KNOW THAT.

WE STEPPED IN VERY HARD IN

THE OLD DAYS.

WHEN THE FREEDOM FIGHTER,

THE MAJAHOOD HADIN WERE

FIGHTING IN AFGHANISTAN

AGAINST THE RUSSIANS.

THEY, IN TURN, MORVED

MORPHED INTO SOME OF THE

WORST ENEMIES WE'VE GOT.

SO YOU DON'T KNOW QUITE WHAT

TO DO.

I THINK JOHN KERRY IS COMING

DOWN ON THE SIDE WE'VE GOT

TO HELP THESE SO-CALLED

REBELS.

HERE AT HOME, INTERESTINGLY,

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS GOTTEN

INTO A WAR OF WORDS WITH ONE

OF THE BEST-KNOWN WASHINGTON

REPORTERS.

AND LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY

FROM THE CBN NEWS.

Lee: FAMED "WASHINGTON

POST" JOURNALIST BOB

WOODWARD SAYS PRESIDENT

OBAMA IS

DISPLAYING A KIND

OF MADNESS HE HASN'T SEEN IN

A LONG TIME.

HE IS CRITICIZING PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S DECISION NOT TO

DEPLOY THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER

TRU MAN BECAUSE OF THE

AUTOMATIC SPENDING CUTS.

HE SAID IT IS

MADNESS FOR

THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF NOT

TO PROTECT NATIONAL SECURITY

AND THEN FLAME I BLAME IT

ON A PIECE OF PAPER.

HE SAID A SENIOR WHITE HOUSE

POSITION WARNED HIM HE WOULD

REGRET PUBLISHING HIS COLUMN

LAST WEEKEND.

WOODWARD WROTE IN THAT

COLUMN THAT IT WAS PRESIDENT

OBAMA WHO CAME UP WITH THE

IDEA OF THE SEQUESTER.

IT WAS SAID VERY CLEARLY

YOU WILL REGRET DOING THIS.

Reporter: WHO SAID

THAT?

WELL, I'M NOT GOING TO

SAY.

Reporter: WAS IT A

SENIOR PERSON?

A VERY SENIOR PERN.

IT MAKES ME VERY

UNCOMFORTABLE HAVING THE

WHITE HOUSE TELLING

REPORTERS YOU'RE GOING TO

REGRET DOING SOMETHING THAT

YOU BELIEVE IN.

Reporter:

AND

WOODWARD

ALSO SAID

HE

DOESN'T BELIEVE

THE PRESIDENT WOULD SUPPORT

A

COMMUNICATION STRATEGY OF

THREATENING REPORTERS.

STILL, YOU HAVE

TO

WONDER

WHEN HE SAYS "THE KIND OF

MADNESS THIS ADMINISTRATION

IS

DISPLAYING," IF THAT IS

NOT SO SUBTLE COMPARISON TO

RICHARD NIXON.

Pat: AND THOSE GUYS

WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR

BRINGING DOWN NIXON,

WOODWARD AND BERNSTEIN, AND

THE THING ABOUT WATERGATE.

IT WAS THEIR REPORTING, AND

DEEP THROAT, AND ALL OF THAT

BUSINESS THAT BROUGHT DOWN

NIXON.

I THINK OBAMA IS PLAYING

WITH FIRE IF HE IS PLAYING

WITH WOODWARD, WHICH IS A

NICE, AIMIABLE PERSON.

HIS WRITING -- HE HAS

UNLIMITED -- EXTRAORDINARY

ACCESS TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND THESE OF COURSE

ADMINISTRATIONS.

AND SUDDENLY HE IS BEGINNING

TO SAY THAT OBAMA IS THE ONE

WHO STARTED THE SEQUESTER,

AND OBAMA IS TRYING TO DENY

IT, BUT HE HAS HIS HANDS ALL

OVER AND HE DOESN'T WANT TO

ACKNOWLEDGE IT.

Lee: REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS IN THE SENATE HAVE

COME UP WITH THEIR OWN

PLANS.

DEMOCRATS WANT TO POSTPONE

THE CUTS UNTIL THE END OF

THE YEAR, AND COME UP WITH

OTHER WAYS TO LIMIT

SPENDING.

REPUBLICANS WANT TO KEEP THE

AUTOMATIC SPENDING CUTS.

THEY WOULD LET PRESIDENT

OBAMA, HOWEVER, REDO THE

BUDGET TO MAKE THE CUTS

EASIER TO BEAR, BUT THEIR

BILL WOULD NOT LET THE

PRESIDENT TO RAISE TAXES.

NEITHER SIDE EXPECTS

THEIR

PLANS TO

PASS.

CONCERNS ABOUT THE SEE

SEQUESTER IS NOT BOTHERING

WALL STREET.

STOCKS CAME WITHIN 60% OF

THEIR HIGHS.

AND SHOPPERS ARE STILL

SPENDING MONEY, EVEN THOUGH

THEY'RE PAYING MORE IN

SOCIAL SECURITY TAXES THIS

YEAR.

SOME ANALYSTS EXPECT A

CORRECTION, BUT OTHERS SAY

THE LONG-TERM OUTLOOK FOR

STOCKS VERY GOOD.

THE FOUNDER OF THE SUBWAY

FAST FOOD CHAIN SAYS HE

COULD NOT START HIS COMPANY

TODAY BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO

MANY GOVERNMENT

REGULATIONS.

FRED DILUKA SAYS IT HAS

CONTINUOUSLY GOTTEN WORSE

BECAUSE THERE IS MORE AND

MORE REGULATIONS, AND IT IS

TOUGHER FOR PEOPLE TO GET

INTO BUSINESS, ESPECIALLY A

SMALL BUSINESS.

"I TELL YOU, IF I STARTED

SUBWAY TODAY, SUBWAY WOULD

NOT EXIST BECAUSE I HAD AN

EASY TIME IN THE '60s,

WHEN I STARTED, AND I SEE A

CONTINUOUS

INCREASE

IN

REGULATIONS."

AMERICA'S POLITICIANS CAME

TOGETHER TO HONOR ROSA

PARKS.

PARKS WAS ARRESTED IN 1955

FOR REFUSING TO GIVE UP HER

SEAT ON A BUS TO A WHITE MAN

IN MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA.

THAT LED TO A PROTEST.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID PARKS

SET AN EXAMPLE OF TRUE

LEADERSHIP.

President Obama: WE

CELEBRATE A SEEMSTRESS,

SLIGHT IN STATURE, BUT

MIGHTY IN SPIRIT.

ANY BURDEN CAN BE

LIFTED.

Lee: ROSA PARKS DIED IN

2005 AT THE AGE OF 92.

AND LEGENDARY PIANIST VAN

CLIBURN HAS DIED.

HE PLAYED FOR EVERY

PRESIDENT AND HEADS OF STATE

AROUND THE WORLD.

HE WON AN AWARD AT 23.

JUST SIX MONTHS AFTER THE

SOVIETS LAUNCHED SPUTNIK AND

STARTED THE SPACE RACE.

AND HE SAYS HE LOVED THE

RUSSIAN PEOPLE AS WELL.

HE PLAYED FOR MIKHAIL

GORBACHEV IN 1987.

HE WAS FROM FORT WORTH

TEXAS, AND HE WAS 78 YEARS

OLD.

Pat: HE WAS A VERY

GRACIOUS GUY, AND A DEAD

DEDICATED CHRISTIAN, A

WONDERFUL MAN.

TERRY, WE HAD SORT OF A FUN

THING.

WE WERE DOING A RALLY, I

BELIEVE IT WAS IN

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, AND

SO WE WERE IN AN ARENA --

Terry: IS THIS WHEN YOU

WERE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT?

Pat: NO.

IT WAS SOMETHING FOR CBN.

WE WERE DOING A TELETHON,

AND IT WAS OVER MEMORIAL

DAY -- IT WAS THAT

TIMEFRAME.

THERE WAS AN ARENA THAT HAD

THREE PARTS TO IT.

SO THREE PARTS.

SO THEY HAD A HEADLINE, AND

BILL, AND IN THE MIDDLE PART

WAS A WRESTLING TOURNAMENT.

ON THE ONE HAND WAS VAN

CLIBURN HAVING A CONCERT,

AND ON THE OTHER HAND WAS ME

DOING MY THING.

THE BILLING SAID PAT

ROBERTSON WRESTLING VAN

CLIBURN.

I'LL TREASURE THAT MOMENT.

I DIDN'T TRY TO TAKE ON HIS

VIRTUOSO.

HE WAS A TREMENDOUS PIANIST

AND A VERY, VERY NICE GUY.

Terry: AND STILL AHEAD,

HE'S BEEN BITTEN 30 TIMES,

FIVE

OF WHICH WERE ON HIS

HEAD.

PAUL BEDARD TALKS ABOUT WHY

HE WRESTLES REPTILES.

PLUS, HE'LL REVEAL A SIDE OF

HIMSELF YOU WON'T SEE ON

ANIMAL PLANET.

ALL OF THAT IS COMING UP.

FIRST, A LOOK AT A NEW FORM

OF IMMIGRATION REFORM,

COMING FROM AMERICA'S

PEOPLE.

Pat: IMMIGRATION HAS

BECOME AN EVEN HOTTER

POLITICAL ISSUE SINCE LAST

NOVEMBER'S ELECTION.

BUT IN THE HEARTLAND OF

AMERICA, SPIRITUAL LEADERS

IN KEY STATES ARE TAKING A

GRASSROOTS APPROACH TO

IMMIGRATION.

THEY'RE TALKING TO PEOPLE IN

THE PIECE.

PEWS, AND AS HEATHER CELLS

EXPLAINS, THAT COULD LEAD TO

ACTION IN WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AS FIRST

PRESBYTERIAN IN COLORADO

SPRINGS, IMMIGRANTS FLOOD IN

EVERY WEEK.

THEY'RE REFUGEES, NEWLY

ARRIVED IN THE U.S. AND

EAGER TO LEARN ENGLISH.

CHURCH MEMBERS ARE TUTORING

THEM AND GETTING A DOSE OF

INSPIRATION THEMSELVES.

MOST OF THEM TAKE THE BUS

AND TRANSFER TWO OR THREE

TIMES TO GET TO CLASS.

AND THEY'RE JUST SO DILIGENT

ABOUT SHOWING UP EVERY DAY.

IT IS JUST AMAZING TO ME

THE COURAGE THAT IT TAKES

FOR THEM TO COME HERE.

Reporter: THIS

INTERACTION BRINGS THE

IMMIGRATION ISSUE DIRECTLY

TO CHURCH MEMBERS AND

HEIGHTENS THEIR AWARENESS OF

THE NATIONAL DEBATE.

ONCE YOU HAVE NAMES AND

FACES TO PUT WHAT IT, IT NO

LONGER IS THIS ISSUE THAT

YOU JUST READ ABOUT IN THE

NEWSPAPER.

Reporter: BUT NOT ALL

CHURCHES HERE GET SO

ACTIVELY INVOLVED.

FOR YEARS MANY CHURCHES IN

COLORADO HAVE SIMPLY BEEN

UNAWARE OF IMMIGRANT

COMMUNITIES RIGHT IN THEIR

MIDST.

THAT IS ONE REASON WHY A

GROUP CALLED THE EVANGELICAL

IMMIGRATION TABLE DECIDED TO

REACH OUT.

I THINK WHEN YOU DON'T

KNOW IMMIGRANTS AND YOU

DON'T INTERACT WITH THEM, IT

IS JUST NOT ON YOUR RADAR.

Reporter: THE GROUP

BEGAN JUST LAST SUMMER, AND

ALREADY ITS MEMBERSHIP

INCLUDES MAJOR PLAYERS LIKE

"FOCUS ON THE FAMILY," AND

THE "SOUTHERN BAPTIST

CONVENTION."

WASHINGTON WANTS TO SECURE

U.S. BORDERS, PROTECT THE

UNITY OF THE FAMILY, AND

PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

EARNED CITIZENSHIP.

I DON'T KNOW IF A FEW

YEARS AGO WE WERE IN THE

GAME.

BUT WE DEFINITELY RECOGNIZE

OUR NEED TO BE THERE AND TO

WORK TOGETHER.

Reporter: THE E.I. T.

IS ALSO TAKING ITS GAME TO

CHURCHES WHERE THE

IMMIGRATION POPULATION HAS

EXPLODED.

STATES LIKE FLORIDA, TEXAS,

AND COLORADO.

THE GOAL: TEACH WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS ABOUT IMMIGRANTS

AND ENCOURAGE MINISTRY.

A VIDEO CAMPAIGN SAYS IT

ALL.

I WAS A STRANGER, AND YOU

INVITED ME IN.

I NEEDED CLOTHES, AND YOU

CLOTHED ME.

Reporter: NEW LIFE IN

COLORADO SPRINGS IS ONE

CHURCH THAT IS ALREADY ON

BOARD.

AS A CHRIST FOLLOWER, I

THINK WE'RE COMPELLED BY

SCRIPTURE, BY CHRIST, TO

WELCOME ANYONE WHO IS AMONG

US THAT NEEDED HELP.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

PASTOR BOYD SAYS HE RESPECTS

THE RULE OF LAW, CARING FOR

IMMIGRANTS IS IN HIS VIEW,

SIMPLE THEOLOGY.

IT HAS BROADENED ITS

UNDERSTANDING OF THE ISSUE

WITH THE CREATION OF A

WOMEN'S HEALTH CLINIC.

IT ATTRACTS IMMIGRANTS, BOTH

LEGAL AND UNDOCUMENTED.

AS WE GET TO KNOW OUR

PATIENTS, WE FIND THESE ARE

INCREDIBLY COMPLICATED AND

DIFFICULT ISSUES, AND

EVERYONE HAS A UNIQUE

STORY.

Reporter: RINA THOMPSON

TRANSLATES FOR

SPANISH-SPEAKING PATIENTS.

SHE SAYS MANY CROSS THE

BORDER AND SEND MONEY BACK

TO THE FAMILY.

I CAN'T IMAGINE HAVING MY

KIDS IN OTHER COUNTRY AND

PROBABLY NEVER SEEING THEM

AGAIN.

Reporter: THE CENTER

FOR IMMIGRATION STUDIES

ARGUES WHILE THE BIBLE CALLS

INDIVIDUALS TO ACTS OF

KINDNESS, GOVERNMENTS MUST

PROVIDE JUSTICE.

WHICH VIEW PREVAILS COULD BE

DECIDED IN THE COMING MONTHS

IN WASHINGTON.

EVANGELICALS HAVE THE

NUMBERS TO POTENTIALLY SWAY

LAWMAKERS, BUT MANY HAVEN'T

THOUGHT TO THE ISSUE OR HOW

IT RELATES TO THEIR FAITH.

CONSIDER ONLY 7% OF ADULTS

WITH DECISIONS ON

IMMIGRATION, SAY RELIGION IS

THE MOST IMPORTANT INFLUENCE

ON THEIR VIEW.

COMPARE THAT TO GAY

MARRIAGE, WHERE RELIGION

INFLUENCES 35%.

MY END GOAL IS TO SEE THE

CHURCH BE A PART OF THAT

PROCESS, AND NOT TO KIND OF

BURY THEIR HEADS IN THE SAND

OR BE A PART OF WHAT DRIVES

THAT NEGATIVE RHETORIC.

ANTI-IMMIGRANT SENTIMENT

SHOULD NOT BE IN OUR VIEWS.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, CHURCH ATTITUDES

ARE ALREADY CHANGING.

FOR PAM, IT STARTED WHEN SHE

BEGAN TO MORE CAREFULLY

EXAMINE HER BIBLE.

IT TALKS ABOUT THE WIDOW,

THE ORPHAN, THE STRANGER IN

THE LAND, THESE VULNERABLE

GROUPS.

I HAVE TO RESPOND TO THAT,

OR I'M JUST PRETENDING

CHRISTIANITY.

I'M NOT REALLY DOING IT.

Reporter: AND A DRIVE

AROUND COLORADO SPRINGS

SHOWS VISIBLE CHANGES AS

WELL.

LIKE THE SIGN OUTSIDE THIS

MENNONITE CHURCH, THAT SHOWS

A PERUVIAN GROUP NOW MEETS

HERE.

WE ARE ABOUT 30, 40

PEOPLE, BUT THEY SAID YOU

ARE THE CHURCH OF GOD.

YOU ARE OUR BROTHERS, AND

YOU NEED TO USE THE SAME

CENTER WE ARE USING.

Reporter: ACROSS THE

STATE, PASTORS MEET MONTHLY

TO PRAY FOR IMMIGRANTS.

THEY'RE NOT POLITICAL

MEETINGS, BUT WHO KNOWS.

SUCH PRAYERS COULD INFLUENCE

NOT ONLY HEARTS IN COLORADO,

BUT THOSE IN WASHINGTON AS

WELL.

REPORTING IN COLORADO,

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS TIME WE

RECOGNIZE THAT THE

IMMIGRANTS ARE SWEET,

WONDERFUL PEOPLE.

MANY, MANY OF THEM LOVE

GOD.

THEY SHARE THE SAME VALUES,

AND THEY'RE JUST LOOKING FOR

A BETTER LIFE.

THEY'RE TRYING TO LOOK AFTER

THEIR CHILDREN.

WE WERE DOWN IN MEXICO WITH

THE FLYING HOSPITAL, AND

MANY OF THE WOMEN WERE THERE

ALONE BECAUSE THEIR HUSBANDS

HAD GONE TO THE UNITED

STATES SEEKING SOME

EMPLOYMENT BECAUSE THEY WERE

DESPERATELY POOR.

THEY'RE HURTING, AND IF WE

CAN CAN HELP THEM, WE NEED

TO DO IT.

AND STOP ALL OF THIS HARSH

RHETORIC.

WE HAVE SO MUCH ANGER.

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS

DEALT ITSELF WHAT COULD BE A

MORAL BLOW IN ITS ATTITUDE

TOWARDS IMMIGRATION.

IT IS TIME IT EASES UP AND

BEGIN TO LOVE THESE PEOPLE.

WE DON'T WANT TO GIVE UP OUR

LAWS AND WE NEED TO KEEP THE

BORDER PROTECTED AND ALL

THAT, BUT THESE ARE PEOPLE,

JUST LIKE WE ARE, AND THEY

WANT THE SAME THINGS WE DO.

WELL, THERE IS ONE THING

THAT I DON'T WANT, IS TO

HAVE AN ALLIGATOR IN MY

HOME.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: BUT TERRY HAS

WELCOMED ONE.

THAT SHOWS THE ATTITUDE OF

LOVE WE SHOW HERE.

DO YOU WANT TO TELL US ABOUT

THE GUEST THAT YOU'VE

WELCOMED?

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

COMING UP, WE HAVE THE DEBUT

OF A LIVE ALLIGATOR ON "THE

700 CLUB."

AND HE HAS HIS HANDLER WITH

HIM.

CHECK OUT GATOR BOY PAUL

BEDARD IN OUR GREEN ROOM.

AND STAY TUNED TO SEE WHAT

HAPPENS ONCE PAUL AND HIS

GATOR GET INSIDE OUR STUDIO

ROOM.

THAT'S COMING TO A

TELEVISION SET SET NEAR

YOU, NEXT.

Terry: IF AN ALLIGATOR

GETS INTO YOUR SWIMMING

POOL, IN YOUR BACKYARD, OR

EVEN INSIDE YOUR HOUSE, WHO

ARE YOU GOING TO CALL?

THE GATOR BOYS.

Reporter: WHEN

ALLIGATORS VENTURE FROM

THEIR NATURAL HABITATS, IT

IS THE TIME OF PAUL AND

JIMMY WHO GO IN AFTER THEM.

MY NAME IS PAUL BEDARD,

AND I AM NOT CRAZY.

Reporter: ON ANIMAL

PLANET'S GATOR BOYS, THEY

CATCH THEM AND RETURN THEM

TO SAFETY.

MAYBE YOUR IDEA OF FUN

DOESN'T INCLUDE WRESTLING

DEADLY GATORS, BUT FOR PAUL,

IT IS MORE THAN A DANGEROUS

JOB.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

PLEASE WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB," PAUL BEDARD AND HIS

GATOR.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

DOES YOUR FRIEND HAVE A

NAME?

YES.

THIS IS JUNIOR.

Terry: HOW BIG IS

JUNIOR GOING TO GET?

HOPEFULLY 12, 13 FEET.

Terry: CAN I TOUCH

HIM?

SURE.

Terry: OH, HE IS

GREAT.

I DON'T KNOW, PAT.

I BELIEVE THAT WAS PRETTY

INSENSITIVE TO MENTION

SHOES.

IT'S OKAY.

NOT HERE.

PAUL, CBN HAS BEEN ON THE

YEAR FOR MANY YEARS, AND

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE'VE

EVER HAD A GATOR IN OUR

STUDIO.

SO WE WELCOME BOTH OF YOU.

HOW DO YOU GET INTO THIS?

WHAT IN THE WORLD MADE YOU

SAY ONE DAY, I THINK I'LL

WRESTLE THAT THING.

EVERYBODY IS KIND OF BORN

WITH SOMETHING YOU HAVE A

PASSION FOR.

AND I GREW UP -- I USED TO

LOVE RATTLE SNAKES.

Terry: ALL OF THE CUTE

STUFF.

THE CUTE FLUFFY -- I WAS

A HARD-CORE LITTLE BOY AND I

LIKED ALL OF THE DANGEROUS

ANIMALS.

Terry: THIS IS VERY

DANGEROUS, THIS LINE OF WORK

YOU'VE GOTTEN INTO.

I'M LOOKING AT THE TEETH,

WHICH ARE NUMEROUS.

YOU'VE BEEN BITTEN NUMEROUS

TIMES.

I STOPPED COUNTING AT

25.

Terry: FIVE ON YOUR

HEAD?

YEAH.

IT'S NOT TOO BAD.

I'VE BEEN VERY LUCKY,

ACTUALLY.

Terry: DO THESE GUYS

GET A BAD RAP?

YEAH.

A LOT OF PEOPLE IN FLORIDA

MOVE FROM NEW ENGLAND OR NEW

JERSEY, AND THEY BUY A HOUSE

IN THE EVERGLADES, AND THEY

FREAK OUT WHEN THERE IS A

GATOR IN THEIR BACKYARD, BUT

YOU MOVED INTO THEIR

HABITAT, SO IT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

Terry: YOU GO INTO

PLACES WHERE GATORS GET

INTO, PRIVATE PROPERTY, GOLF

COURSES --

EXACTLY.

THINGS LIKE THAT.

Terry: HOW DO YOU CATCH

ONE OF THESE?

A LOT OF GUYS WILL USE A

SNAG HOOK, BUT IF THE WATER

IS REALLY MERKY AND I CAN'T

SEE HIM, THAT IS ONE OF THE

WAYS.

BUT IF HE IS IN CRYSTAL

CLEARWATER, WHICH BY THE

GRACE OF GOD WE HAVE A LOT

OF, I CAN SWIM DOWN AND

APPROACH THEM.

THEY DON'T REALLY SEE YOU AS

A THREAT.

Terry: IS THEIR VISION

NOT GOOD?

THEIR VISION IS A LITTLE

SHAKY, PROBABLY LIKE OURS

WOULD BE WITHOUT A MASK OR

SNORKEL ON.

Terry: YOU ARE JUST

CARRYING THIS LARGE GATOR

AWAY.

YOU HAVE TO TIE THEIR

MOUTH FIRST.

YOU JUST DON'T GO IN AND

GRAB THEM.

THEY'RE REPTILES, AND SO

THEY'RE COLD-BLOODED, AND SO

IT DOESN'T TAKE VERY LONG.

10, 15 MINUTES.

SOMETIMES THEY'LL COME AT

YOU, AND YOU HAVE TO KNOW

HOW TO DEFEND YOURSELF.

THEIR NUMBER ONE GOAL IS TO

GET AWAY FROM YOU.

Terry: BUT THEY'RE

DANGEROUS AT BOTH ENDS,

RIGHT, THE MOUTH AND THE

TAIL?

EVERYBODY THINKS THE TAIL

IS DANGEROUS, BUT THE MOUTH

IS THE MOST DANGEROUS.

GIVEN THE OPTION, I'LL GO

WITH THE TAIL.

Terry: I MENTIONED THE

INSENSITIVE REMARK ABOUT

SHOES.

I WANT TO MENTION WHEN YOU

CATCH THESE GATORS ON

PEOPLE'S PROPERTY OR AT GOLF

COURSES, YOU DON'T KILL

THEM?

NO.

WE WILL PUT THEM IN A

PRESERVE.

IF THEY'RE UNDER FOUR FEET,

WE CAN RELEASE THEM BACK

INTO THE WILD.

MOST ARE DESTROYED BECAUSE

AS A TRAPPER, YOU DON'T GET

PAID.

YOU'RE PAID WITH THE

ALLIGATOR.

SO MOST PEOPLE WILL HARVEST

THE ANIMAL.

BUT TO ME, THEY'RE LIKE MY

KIDS, SO I CAN'T DO THAT.

Terry: IT SEEMS TO ME

IN YOUR LINE OF WORK THIS

SHOULD BE A GIVEN, BUT YOU

ARE A MAN OF FAITH?

ABSOLUTELY.

THEY SAY THERE IS NO

ATHEISTS IN FOX HOLES, AND

THERE IS NO ATHEISTS WHEN

YOU'RE MESSING WITH A

GATOR.

Terry: HOW DID YOU COME

TO KNOW THE LORD?

LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE, IT

DEVELOPS OVER TIME.

IT WAS MORE OF A TRIAL AND

ERROR THING.

I SAID, THE MORE I FOLLOW

CHRIST'S TEACHINGS, THE

BETTER MY LIFE GETS AND THE

EASIER YOUR LIFE GETS.

AND IT TAKES A FOOT HOLD AND

YOU START TO OPEN YOUR MIND

UP AND THINK, THIS IS THE

REAL DEAL.

Terry: GOD CERTAINLY

HAS PROTECTED YOU WITH THE

WORK THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN

WITH THESE PRECIOUS

ANIMALS.

THAT WOULD BE A GOOD NAME

FOR THIS ONE.

I CAN'T STOP TOUCHING HIS

SKIN.

IT IS SO INTERESTING.

WHAT DO YOU FEED HIM?

MOSTLY CHICKEN.

AND THERE IS A GATOR CHOW,

LIKE DOG FOOD.

Terry: IS THIS TRULY

YOUR GATOR?

NO.

THIS IS A FRIEND OF MINE'S.

HE IS A FRIEND OF MINE,

TOO.

Terry: HE IS VERY DOS

SEL DOCILE.

HE IS USED TO HUMAN

CONTACT.

A WILD GATOR DOESN'T HAVE

THAT REACTION BECAUSE YOU'RE

A PREDATOR TO HIM, AND

THAT'S WHEN IT GETS REALLY

DANGEROUS.

Terry: WHAT'S THE MOST

DIFFICULT SITUATION YOU'VE

BEEN AS FAR AS HAVING TO

CATCH A GATOR.

THERE IS A LOT.

THE ONES WE CAUGHT IN

MISSISSIPPI, WHEN WE WERE

DOWN THERE, THOSE WERE A

CHALLENGE BECAUSE IT IS A

DIFFERENT TERRAIN.

I'M USED TO CRYSTAL CLEAR

WATER.

IN MISSISSIPPI, THERE IS A

LOT OF MUD.

WE GET STUCK UP TO OUR

WAIST.

I FOUND A FEW GATORS BUMPING

THEM WITH MY HEAD UNDER

WATER.

Terry: PAUL, THERE

MIGHT BE A BETTER WAY.

YEAH, THAT'S WHAT I

THOUGHT.

Terry: LET THOSE

MISSISSIPPIANS CATCH THEIR

OWN GATORS.

MY TECHNIQUES WEREN'T SO

GOOD FOR MISSISSIPPI RIGHT

OFF THE BAT.

Terry: PEOPLE LOVE THE

SHOW.

I THINK YOU'VE GIVEN PEOPLE

A NEW APPRECIATION FOR AN

ANIMAL THAT HAS BEEN AROUND

A LONG TIME THAT IN ITS OWN

WAY IS VERY BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU.

APPRECIATE IT.

Terry: IF YOU WOULD

LIKE TO SEE MORE OF PAUL

WRESTLING GATORS, YOU CAN

WATCH HIM AND HIS PARTNER,

JIMMY, ON ANIMAL PLANET'S

"GATOR BOYS," AND YOU CAN GO

TO cbn.com FOR A WEB

EXCLUSIVE WITH PAUL.

HE MUST HAVE HEARD THE SHOE

COMMENT BECAUSE HE IS MOVING

AWAY FROM YOU, PAT, WITH AS

MUCH SPEED AS HE CAN MUSTER

ON THIS SLICK FLOOR.

Pat: THAT WOULD MAKE A

NICE PAIR OF LOAFERS.

I THINK THE CROCODILES AND

THE ALLIGATORS MAY GOING

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

YEARS.

THEY ARE SOME OF THE FIRST

ON THIS PLANET --

Terry: HE IS HEARING

YOUR COMMENTS.

Pat: I'M COMPLIMENTING

HIM.

HOW OLD ARE THESE THINGS?

NOT HIM, BUT THE SPECIES

ITSELF.

THEY SAY UP TO

215 MILLION YEARS.

I'M NOT SURE HOW THEY

PINPOINT THAT.

Terry: A GATOR TOLD

THEM.

Pat: HE IS GOING SOME

PLACE.

HE LIKES IT HERE.

BE CAREFUL.

IF THERE IS A DOG OUT, HE'LL

FIND LUNCH.

ALL RIGHT.

STILL AHEAD, DISCOVER THE

SECRET TO UNLOCKING GOD'S

SUPER NATURAL POWER IN YOUR

LIFE.

IT IS CALLED THE LAW OF

MIRACLES.

THAT IS COMING UP.

PLUS, LATER WE'RE GOING TO

MEET A LIVING MIRACLE.

A LITTLE GIRL NAMED

NICOLLETTE.

SURVIVAL OF THREE TO FOUR

YEARS.

HIS TREATMENT BEGAN THIS

WEEK.

THE 57-YEAR-OLD WRITES, "MY

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB,"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: DO YOU NEED A

MIRACLE IN YOUR MARRIAGE, A

HEALING IN YOUR PHYSICAL

BODY, OR MAYBE A FINANCIAL

BREAKTHROUGH?

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WHEN

YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THE LAW

OF MIRACLES WORKS.

PAT EXPLAINS IT IN THIS

SEGMENT FROM "THE SECRET

KINGDOM."

Pat: MIRACLES -- WHAT

IS A MIRACLE?

HOW DO YOU HAVE A MIRACLE?

WELL, IF YOU WANT TO LOOK AT

A DEFINITION, A MIRACLE IS A

SUSPENSION OF WHAT SEEMS TO

BE THE NATURAL LAWS TO BRING

ABOUT ANOTHER RESULT.

AND YOU CAN LOOK AT ALL

KINDS OF THINGS AND SAY THIS

IS MIRACULOUS.

AN EXAMPLE OF JESUS -- AND

HE DID MANY MIRACLES -- HE

AND HIS DISCIPLES HAD BEEN

OVER IN THE TEMPLE MOUNT IN

JERUSALEM.

HE WALKED DOWN INTO WHAT IS

CALLED THE KIDRON VALLEY.

IT IS NOT VERY DEEP.

I'VE WALKED THERE.

IT IS NOT A BIG PLACE.

YOU GO DOWN INTO THIS LITTLE

RAVINE, AND YOU GO UP A HILL

CALLED THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.

SO HE WENT UP THERE WITH HIS

DISCIPLES, TO A LITTLE TOWN

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE

MOUNT OF OLIVES.

THERE HE SPENT THE NIGHT AND

HE CAME OUT THE NEXT

MORNING.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE

WAS HUNGRY.

AND SO HE SAW A FIG TREE

THAT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS IN

LEAF AND BEARING FIGS.

SO HE WENT OVER TO IT AND

THERE WERE NO FIGS.

NO FRUIT.

AND SO HE SAID TO THIS FIG

TREE, LET NO MAN EVER EAT

FRUIT FROM YOU AGAIN.

THEN HE WENT TOW DOWN THE

HILL, UP THE OTHER SIDE,

INTO WHAT WE KNOW AS THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

MOUNT OF OLIVES ON ONE SIDE,

KIDRON VALLEY AND THEN THE

OTHER SIDE.

IT IS NOT LIKE A BIG PLACE.

IT'S NOT LIKE YOU'RE

CLIMBING THE ROCKIES.

IT IS JUST A HILL.

SO HE GOT UP THERE AND HE

FOUND TERRIBLE STUFF GOING

ON.

HE FOUND PEOPLE SELLING SICK

PIGEONS AND HAWKING TEMPLE

COINS AND DOING ALL KINDS OF

THINGS.

WELL, HE WAS ENRAGED.

AND HE SAYS, IT IS WRITTEN

THAT MY FATHER'S HOUSE

SHOULD BE CALLED A HOUSE OF

PRAYER, AND YOU MADE IT INTO

A DEN OF THIEVES.

SO HE SMASHED OPEN THE CAVES

WHERE THE BIRDS WERE, AND

TOTAL CHAOS.

AND HE STARTED BEATING THEM

AND DRIVING THEM OUT OF THE

TEMPLE.

AND THEN THEY WENT BACK UP

TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,

SPENT THE NIGHT AND CAME OUT

THE NEXT DAY.

WHEN THEY PASSED BY THIS

LITTLE TREE, THIS FIG TREE,

THE LITTLE THING HAD

SHRIVELLED UP AT ITS ROOTS.

IT WAS TOTALLY DEAD.

AND PETER WANTED TO CALL

ATTENTION TO IT.

AND HE SAYS, MASTER, THE FIG

TREE THAT YOU CURSED IS

DEAD!

AND ALONG WITH THAT WAS KIND

OF, LIKE, HOW DID YOU DO

IT?

AND SO JESUS DIDN'T SAY,

WELL, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO

KNOW, PETER?

HE JUST STARTED TEACHING.

AND HE SAID, HAVE FAITH IN

GOD.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

AND WHOEVER SAYS TO THIS

MOUNTAIN, BE REMOVED AND

CAST INTO THE SEA, AND DOES

NOT DOUBT IN HIS HEART,

SHALL HAVE THE THINGS THAT

HE SAYS.

NOW, THAT'S THE PRINCIPLE OF

MIRACLES RIGHT THERE.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH IN

DOCTORS.

YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH IN

MEDICINE.

YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH IN

YOURSELF.

YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH IN YOUR

MONEY.

YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH IN ALL

OF YOUR NATURAL ABILITIES.

YOU HAVE FAITH IN GOD, WHO

IS THE AUTHOR OF ALL LIFE.

WHO IS ALMIGHTY AND ALL

POWERFUL.

WHO CAN DO ANYTHING.

AND YOU HAVE FAITH IN HIM.

AND THEN YOU ARE IN THE

PRESENCE OF GOD.

AND YOU BEHOLD HIS GLORY.

AND YOU'RE IN A STATE OF

BEING BORN AGAIN.

AND YOU LOOK UP INTO THE

FACE OF GOD AND YOU SAY,

GOD, WHAT DO YOU WANT?

AND HE SPEAKS TO YOU.

HE WILL SPEAK AND

COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR

SPIRIT.

AND THEN YOU SAY, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS, I CURSE YOU

VICTORY.

MOUNTAIN MOVE.

DEBT GO OUT OF THE WAY.

MARRIAGE BE RESTORED.

WHATEVER IT IS THAT IS ON

YOUR HEART.

YOU SAY IT, YOU SPEAK IT

WITH YOUR MOUTH.

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS.

THERE IS SO MUCH TO TALK

ABOUT AND SO LITTLE TIME.

BUT THE PRINCIPLE OF POWER

COMES FROM THIS: IT COMES

FROM GOD, WHO IS THE ETERNAL

MIND.

GOD SPEAKS TO HIS SPIRIT.

THE SPIRIT SPEAKS TO YOUR

SPIRIT.

YOUR SPIRIT SPEAKS TO YOUR

MIND.

YOUR MIND SPEAKS TO YOUR

MOUTH.

YOUR MOUTH SPEAKS TO THE

CREATED UNIVERSE AROUND

YOU.

SO YOU SPEAK TO DEVILS.

YOU SPEAK TO DISEASE.

YOU SPEAK TO POVERTY.

YOU SPEAK TO FAMINE.

YOU SPEAK TO STORMS.

YOU SPEAK IN THE NAME OF THE

LORD.

BUT IT COMES BY HAVING THE

WORD OF GOD ENERGIZED IN

YOUR MOUTH.

BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN IN HIS

PRESENCE, AND YOU'VE BEHELD

HIS GLORY, AND YOU'VE

LISTENED TO HIS VOICE, AND

YOUR SPEAKING WHAT HE SAYS.

HE SAYS, MY WORD IN YOUR

MOUTH IS AS POWERFUL AS MY

WORD AND MY MOUTH.

THAT'S A PRETTY HEAVY THING,

BUT THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

AND JESUS SAID THERE IS

NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE, NOTHING

WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU.

AND HE SAYS GREATER WORKS

WILL YOU DO THAN I DO

BECAUSE I'M GOING TO MY

FATHER.

NOW THIS IS THE PRINCIPLE

AND THE LAW OF MIRACLES.

NOW, THERE IS ONE OTHER

THING ABOUT MIRACLES THAT

YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND.

HE SAID, WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE THAT

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER MIGHT

FORGIVE YOU.

I REMEMBER SOME YEARS AGO I

WAS ASKED TO SPEAK TO A

CONFERENCE IN SINGAPORE.

AND IT WAS A NICE GROUP OF

CHINESE PEOPLE, CHRISTIANS.

AND WHEN I CAME OUT AT A

BREAK, THERE WAS THIS LITTLE

LADY WHO SAID, I'VE GOT

ARTHRITIS, AND I ASK YOU TO

PRAY FOR ME.

AND I SAID SURE.

AND SO I LAID HANDS ON HER

AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS, BE

HEALED.

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

STILL GOT ARTHRITIS.

SO LET'S PRAY AGAIN.

SO I SAID, LET'S PRAY

AGAIN.

AND SHE SAID, I STILL HAVE

ARTHRITIS.

I SAID, LET ME ASK YOU

SOMETHING.

AND SHE SAID, WHAT'S THAT?

I SAID, ARE YOU ANGRY WITH

ANYBODY, DO YOU HAVE SOME

RESENTMENT IN YOUR HEART?

AND SHE SAID, OH, NO.

I LOVE EVERYBODY.

I DON'T HATE ANYBODY.

AND I SAID HOW ABOUT YOUR

HUSBAND?

AND SHE SAID, OH, I HATE

HIM, BUT HE DOESN'T COUNT.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, YOU'VE

GOT TO COUNT YOUR HUSBAND OR

YOUR WIFE OR YOUR KIDS OR

YOUR PARENTS.

YOU CAN'T SAY IT IS A FAMILY

MATTER.

IF YOU HAVE RESENTMENT IN

YOUR HEART -- JESUS SAID IN

ORDER TO BE IN THAT POSITION

OF BEING BORN AGAIN, YOU

HAVE TO BE IN THE POSITION

OF BEING FORGIVEN.

IN ORDER TO BE IN A POSITION

OF BEING FORGIVEN, YOU HAVE

TO FORGIVE OTHERS, THOSE WHO

HAVE OFFENDED YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE MIRACLES

AND YOU WANT TO BE IN THE

PRESENCE OF GOD, YOU HAVE TO

BE ABLE AND WILLING TO

FORGIVE.

SO IT IS HARD TO DO.

YES, IT IS HARD TO DO.

FIRST OF ALL, IF IT IS HARD

TO FORGIVE THEM, START

ASKING FOR A BLESSING WHEN

YOU PRAY.

I ASK GOD TO BLESS THEM.

WHOEVER HAS OFFENDED YOU,

ASK GOD TO BLESS THEM

BECAUSE THIS IS THE KEY.

THIS IS THE THING THAT WILL

LOCK UP THE POWER OF GOD.

THIS IS THE THING THAT WILL

OPEN THE FLOODGATES OF HIS

PRESENCE.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

AND THE NEXT THING IS SPEAK

WITH YOUR MOUTH.

HAVING LISTENED TO HIM, BEEN

IN HIS PRESENCE, THEN SAY

WHAT YOU WANT.

COMMAND THE MOUNTAIN TO

MOVE.

COMMAND THE DISEASE TO

LEAVE.

COMMAND THE DEMONS TO LEAVE

YOU.

COMMAND -- SPEAK IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

BECAUSE HE SAID THE NEXT

THING IS DON'T DOUBT IN YOUR

HEART.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF TWO OF YOU

AGREE AND TOUCHING ANYTHING

AND ASK, IT WILL BE DONE BY

MY FATHER IN HEAVEN.

THERE HAS TO BE AGREEMENT.

WHAT IS THE AGREEMENT?

THE AGREEMENT IS WITH THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

WITH YOUR SPIRIT.

AND YOU DON'T DOUBT.

YOU DON'T SAY I DON'T REALLY

BELIEVE THIS BECAUSE THEN

YOU DON'T HAVE AGREEMENT.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS SAYING,

I WANT TO HEAL YOU.

AND YOU SAY AMEN.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I AM

HEALED.

BUT IF YOU SAY OH, NO, THE

DOCTOR TOLD ME I HAVE AN IN

CURABLE DISEASE, I CAN'T GET

HEALED.

JESUS SAID YOU DON'T DOUBT

IN YOUR HEART.

AND IF YOU DON'T DOUBT IN

YOUR HEART, YOU WILL HAVE

THE THING THAT YOU SAY.

SO SPEAK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

[APPLAUSE]

Terry: "THE SECRET

KINGDOM," THAT'S JUST A

PORTION OF THAT BOOK THAT

WAS SUCH A BEST-SELLER FOR

PAT.

AND SECRETS OF LIFE FROM THE

WORD OF GOD.

Pat: THE LORD OPENED UP

TO ME THINGS THAT I HAD

NEVER SEEN.

I'VE BEEN TO SEMINARY, I

HAVE READ THE BIBLE, AND ALL

OF A SUDDEN HE GAVE ME A

WHOLE NEW LOOK AT WHAT HIS

TEACHINGS ARE, AND THEY ARE

REVOLUTIONARY.

FOR EVERYBODY,

REVOLUTIONARY.

Terry: I LOVE

REINHART'S QUOTE, WHAT THE

LORD SPOKE IN MY MOUTH AND

YOUR MOUTH IS AS POWERFUL AS

THE WORD IN HIS MOUTH.

THAT IS THE KINGDOM POWER

HAD IS AVAILABLE IN THE

SECRET KINGDOM.

IF YOU GO TO cbn.com, TAKE

A LOOK AT ALL OF THEM

BECAUSE IT IS REALLY PRETTY

AWESOME.

Pat: I'M THRILLED, AND

I'M THRILLED THIS HAS

TOUCHED MANY, MANY LIVES

AROUND THE WORLD.

THE MOTHER IN OUR NEXT STORY

HAS EXPERIENCED THE LAW OF

MIRACLES FIRSTHAND.

DOCTORS TOLD ANDREA SHE

WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO

CONCEIVE A BABY, THAT IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE FOR HER TO

CONCEIVE.

BUT SHE DIDN'T LISTEN TO THE

DOCTORS.

SHE LISTENED TO THE VOICE OF

GOD.

Reporter: ANDREA LOVED

HER HUSBAND MARSHAL, AND HER

STEPSON COLE DEEPLY, BUT SHE

LONGED TO HAVE HER OWN

CHILD.

THEY TOLD ME I WOULD

NEVER HAVE CHILDREN.

WHEN WE WENT TO THE

SPECIALIST, WHERE THE

REGULAR DOCTOR HAD REFERRED

US, HE ACTUALLY TOLD ME THAT

HE COULDN'T RAISE THE DEAD

AFTER SEEING WHAT MY INSIDES

LOOKED LIKE.

IT IS A TRYING TIME WHEN YOU

WANT SO BAD FOR A CHILD, AND

EVERYBODY AROUND YOU IS

GETTING PREGNANT AND HAVING

BABY SHOWERS.

AND I WOULD BE, LIKE, I

DON'T WANT TO GO TO THIS

BABY SHOWER.

NOT ANOTHER BABY SHOWER.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE ONE OF

THOSE PEOPLE WHO COULDN'T BE

HAPPY FOR SOMEBODY ELSE, BUT

IT WAS HARD AT TIMES.

Reporter: ONE DAY SHE

WAS WATCHING TELEVISION.

"THE 700 CLUB" WAS ON AND

TERRY WAS ON.

Terry: THE WOMAN WHO

HAS HAD A DIAGNOSIS THAT YOU

ARE BARON, GOD IS GOING TO

GIVE YOU CHILDREN, THE

DESIRE OF YOUR HEART.

I FELT WARMTH AND JOY AND

JUST EXCITED.

I HAD BEEN TOLD MANY TIMES

TO WAIT WITH EXPECTATION

WITH GOD'S PROMISES, AS

CHILDREN WOULD WAIT FOR

CHRISTMAS MORNING.

SO THAT'S WHAT I FELT LIKE,

EXCITED.

SO I ACTUALLY WENT TO THE

STORE, THAT THINGS ONLY COST

A DOLLAR IN, BECAUSE I HAD

SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON

PREGNANCY TESTS, AND I

PURCHASED ONE THERE AND IT

TESTED POSITIVE.

I WENT TO GET MY HUSBAND, TO

SHARE THAT NEWS WITH HIM.

I SAID, COME AND LOOK AT

THIS.

AND AT THAT TIME, WE HAD NO

IDEA IF YOU CAN GET A FALSE

POSITIVE.

I WENT TO THE DOCTOR THAT

SAME WEEK.

AND HE SAID THERE WERE NO

FALSE POSITIVES, AND IF IT

SAID I WAS, I, INDEED, WAS.

AND THEN WE WERE ABLE TO

SPREAD THE NEWS TO EVERYBODY

ELSE.

WHEN I GAVE BIRTH TO

NICOLLETTE, IT GAVE ME THE

FEELING OF BEING WHOLE.

THE PITTER PATTER OF LITTLE

FEET, AND THE KIND OF THINGS

MOMS GET TO DO.

SNUGGLING AND PRAYING

TOGETHER.

ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

IT IS JOY COMPLETE,

FULFILLMENT LIKE I NEVER

KNEW.

GOD IS CAPABLE OF DOING

ABOVE AND BEYOND ANYTHING

THAT YOU DARE TO THINK OR

ASK.

Pat: GOD IS ABLE,

EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY THAT

ALL YOU COULD SEEK OR ASK.

Terry: MYRTLE SUFFERED

FROM A HERNIA, BUT HER

DOCTOR DIDN'T WANT TO

OPERATE BECAUSE OF HER

ADVANCED AGE.

SHE WAS WATCHING THE SHOW,

AND, PAT, YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT A HERNIA

BEING HEALING, AND SHE

CLAIMED IT.

AND SHE NO LONGER HAS PAIN

AND HER DOCTOR HAS CONFIRMED

HER HEALING.

Pat: RUBY, WHO LIVES IN

SOUTH CAROLINA, HAD TROUBLE

SWALLOWING AND WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH RESTRICTION OF THE

ESOPHAGUS.

SHE SAID I CAN'T HAVE

SURGERY BECAUSE I'M A

SINGER.

BUT SHE HAD TERRIFYING

EPISODES, THINGS WOULD CHOKE

IN HER WINDPIPE.

AND LAST JANUARY, SHE HEARD

TERRY SAYING SOMEBODY, YOU

HAVE A HARD TIME EATING AND

SWALLOWING, JUST TOUCH YOUR

THROAT RIGHT NOW AND RECEIVE

HEALING.

AND GUESS WHAT?

Terry: RUBY GOT

HEALED.

Pat: SHE SWALLOWED AND

WAS HEALED BY THE POWER OF

GOD.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER.

I'M GOING TO GET OVER HERE

SO I CAN TAKE HER HAND.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

LORD, YOU SAID HAVE FAITH IN

GOD.

NOW, LORD, YOU'RE THE ONE

THAT PUT THE PLANETS AND

STARS IN THE SKY.

YOU'RE THE ONE THAT CREATED

THE EARTH.

YOU'RE THE ONE THAT BROUGHT

FORTH OF SEAS AND THE

MOUNTAINS AND THE MAN ON

EARTH AND THE WOMAN ON EARTH

AND THE ANIMALS AND THE

PLANTS.

YOU DID IT ALL, AND ALL YOU

DID WAS SPEAK THE WORD.

AND SO LIKE THE CENTURION

WHO SAID TO JESUS, JUST

SPEAK THE WORD AND MY

SERVANT WILL BE HEALED.

JUST SPEAK THE WORD AND

TOUCH PEOPLE'S LIVES.

GOD IS GOING TO SUPPLY A

MILLION DOLLARS.

SOMEONE IS PRAYING RIGHT

NOW, RIGHT THIS SECOND,

YOU'RE PRAYING FOR A MILLION

DOLLARS.

GOD SAID, I HAVE HEARD YOUR

PRAYER, I KNOW YOUR NEED,

AND I'M GOING TO SUPPLY THE

NEED YOU HAVE REQUESTED.

IT IS DONE, IN JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: TWO CONDITIONS

OF THE HEAD.

ONE IS SOMEBODY -- YOU'RE

EARS, YOU'VE LOST SO MUCH

HEARING, AND IT FEELS LIKE

YOUR EARS ARE STOPPED UP,

LIKE YOU'RE HEARING UNDER

WATER.

YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR A POP

IN YOUR EARS, AND YOUR

HEARING IS GOING TO TOTALLY

OPEN.

AND YOU'LL HAVE FREE HEARING

AGAIN.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

SITUATION WITH YOUR HEAD.

THERE IS A FORGETFULNESS.

YOU FEEL A LITTLE FOGGY ALL

OF THE TIME.

GOD IS JUST RENEWING ALL OF

THAT TO YOU.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE THAT

ANYMORE.

YOUR GOING TO HAVE CLARITY

OF THOUGHT.

YOU'RE MEMORY IS GOING TO

FUNCTION WELL AND EVERYTHING

WILL BE NORMAL.

Pat: THERE IS AN INNER

CITY CHURCH, AND YOU'RE

FACING WHAT LOOKS LIKE A

CHURCH SPLIT.

THERE ARE PEOPLE ANGRY ON

EITHER SIDE.

GOD IS GOING TO POUR OIL ON

THAT SITUATION.

THE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO COME

TOGETHER, AND GOD IS GOING

TO BLESS YOU.

JUST RECEIVE THAT BLESSING.

FATHER, FOR EVERYONE ELSE IN

THIS AUDIENCE, MAY THE

ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

REST ON THEM, FILL THEM WITH

YOUR SPIRIT, AND ANSWER

THEIR PRAYER IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, PLEASE

CALL IF YOU HAVE FURTHER

NEED AND YOU WANT PRAYER.

RIGHT NOW IT IS TIME TO

ANSWER A FEW E-MAIL

QUESTIONS THAT HAVE COME TO

US.

Terry: IT IS.

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE

COMMUNICATED WITH US.

THIS IS SONDRA WHO SAYS, "I

WAS TALKING WITH A FRIEND

ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF

COCONUT OIL, AND SHE TOLD ME

IT WAS A SATURATED FAT AND

WOULD RAISE CHOLESTEROL.

IS THIS TRUE?

HOW DO YOU WEIGH THE

BENEFITS OF SOMETHING IS

GOOD FOR YOU AND BAD FOR YOU

AT THE SAME TIME?"

Pat: THE MAKERS OF

LIPITOR HAVE MADE BILLIONS

OF DOLLARS SELLING US ON THE

THOUGHT THAT CHOLESTEROL IS

THE PROBLEM.

AND YOU'VE GOT THOSE STATIN

DRUGS -- WHATEVER.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

CHOLESTEROL TO MAKE YOUR

MIND WORK.

YOUR MIND WORKS ON

CHOLESTEROL.

YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE IT IN

YOUR BRAIN.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CERTAIN

AMOUNT.

YOU'RE BODY MAKES

CHOLESTEROL.

IT IS NOT THE CHOLESTEROL.

IT IS THE STRESS.

IT IS THE IMFLAMMATION THAT

CAUSES THE PROBLEM.

COCONUT OIL IS

EXTRAORDINARILY GOOD FOR

YOU, BUT SO ARE EGGS.

AND TO WORRY ABOUT A LITTLE

BIT OF CHOLESTEROL IS

NONSENSE.

SURE, IT MAY BRING SOME, BUT

IT IS NOT GOING TO HURT

YOU.

THE CHOLESTEROL ISN'T

NECESSARILY A BAD THING.

IT IS THE IMFLAMMATION THAT

IS THE BAD THING.

WHAT

ELSE?

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "IS IT WRONG TO

EXPECT BETTER FOR MYSELF.

I REPEATEDL RECENTLY LOST

MY JOB, AND HAD A COUPLE OF

INTERVIEWS, BUT THE SALARIES

WEREN'T VERY GOOD.

SHOULD I TAKE WHAT COMES OR

WAIT FOR SOMETHING BETTER.

EACH DAY COUNTS FOR ME.

I SUPPORT MYSELF."

Pat: THERE IS NOTHING

WRONG WITH LOOKING FOR

SOMETHING BETTER, BUT I DO

BELIEVE, FRANKLY, IN THIS

ENVIRONMENT THAT WE'RE IN,

YOU BETTER TAKE THE BLESSING

OF GOD THAT IS OFFERED TO

YOU.

IF THERE IS A GOOD JOB

OFFERED TO YOU, TAKE IT AND

BEGIN TO GROW AND THEN LOOK

FOR ANOTHER OPPORTUNITIES.

BECAUSE IF YOU'RE OUT OF

WORK, ON THE SHELF, YOU GET

LESS AND LESS DESIRABLE AS

AN EMPLOYEE EVERY DAY YOU

LIVE.

THE SOONER YOU GET EMPLOYED

AGAIN, THE BETTER OFF YOU'LL

BE.

Terry: BIRD IN THE HAND

IS WORTH --

Pat: JUST PRAISE THE

LORD FOR WHAT IS THERE.

IF YOU'VE GOT THREE OR FOUR

OPTIONS, LET HIM SHOW YOU

THE RIGHT ONE.

BUT DON'T SIT AROUND WAITING

FOR THAT PERFECT THING TO

COME ABOUT.

Terry: WANDA SAYS, "I

HAVE TWO 401Ks, ONE FROM

MY PREVIOUS EMPLOYER.

THAT IS JUST ENOUGH TO PAY

OFF MY FINAL CREDIT CARD

DEBT.

MY PLAN IS TO PUT THE SAME

AMOUNT OF MONEY AS THE

CREDIT CARD DEBT WAS TO PAY

FOR FUTURE CARRY PAIRS, HOME

OWNERS INSURANCE, ETC.

SHOULD I PAY IT OFF OR ROLL

IT INTO THE OTHER 401K

STRIKERS.

Pat 401K?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

ENOUGH ABOUT YOUR SITUATION

TO GIVE YOU A REALLY

INTELLIGENT ANSWER.

BUT MOST ADVISORS ADVISE

AGAINST CASHING IN.

YOU'RE GOING TO PAY INCOME

TAX ON THE WHOLE AMOUNT.

IF YOU'VE GOT $100,000, IT

ISN'T THAT YOU'LL GET

$100,000.

YOU'LL GET $60,000, OR

$70,000.

I DON'T THINK AN EMPLOYER IS

GOING TO BONUS YOU UP ON A

SECOND 401.

BUT I THINK YOU SHOULD OPEN

UP A SELF-DIRECTED I.R.A.,

AND PUT THE MONEY IN THE

I.R.A., AND THEN YOU'LL HAVE

A TAX ADVANTAGE IN THE

I.R.A. PLUS A 401.

AND THEN THE TIME WILL COME

WHEN YOU CAN SWITCH THEM ALL

INTO THE I.R.A. .

THAT WOULD BE MY ADVICE, BUT

I DON'T KNOW YOUR

SITUATION.

Terry: HERE IS ONE FROM

JAN I THINK YOU CAN ANSWER

IN THE TIME WE HAVE LEFT,

"SHOULD YOU TITHE ON SOCIAL

SECURITY BENEFITS?"

Pat: YES.

Terry: LINDA SAYS, "I

KNOW WE'RE TO FORGIVE

TRESPASSES AGAINST US, BUT I

CAN'T FORGET WHAT HAS

HAPPENED.

DO I HAVE TO SOCIALIZE

SOMEONE AFTER THEY HAVE HURT

ME?"

Pat: NO, BUT YOU NEED

TO FORGIVE IN YOUR HEART.

START PRAYING FOR THE

PERSON.

PRAY GOD'S BLEG ON THEM.

PRAY GOD'S BLESSING ON

THEM.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU'RE

IN A DIFFERENT MODE.

INSTEAD OF SAYING I HATE

THEM, KEEP ME FROM HATING

THEM, YOU'RE SAYING, GOD,

REACH OUT AND BLESS THEM,

CHANGE THEIR HEART.

Terry: BUT YOU CAN DO

THAT WITHOUT THEM COMING

INTO YOUR CIRCLE.

Pat: YOU DON'T HAVE TO

GET BACK INTO SOMEBODY WHO

IS NASTY.

THOSE THINGS ARE CORROSIVE,

AND YOU DON'T NEED THAT.

GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

THAT.

TOMORROW ON "THE 700 CLUB,"

WE'VE GOT AN INTERVIEW WITH

THE VERY LOVELY ROMA DOWNEY,

WHO STARRED IN THE SHOW

"TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL."

AND WE HAVE MARK BARNETT,

WHO IS THE PRODUCER OF THE

"SURVIVOR."

AND WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH

THESE WORDS FROM LUKE: "FOR

WITH GOD, NOTHING WILL BE

IMPOSSIBLE."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

AND WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW AS WE CONTINUE "THE

700 CLUB."

GOD BLESS YOU.
