SITUATION THAT YOUTHAT YOU COULDN'T SEE YOUR WAY TOF? I HAVE, BRIAN.

MANY MANY TIMES.I'VE BEEN PLACESWHERE I DIDN'T KNOWHOW GOD WILL FIX IT.

I CERTAINLY DID NOT KNOW HOW GODFIX IT.I FELT VERY POWERLESS.IT IS A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN

ONLY GET THROUGH WITH PEACEAND JOY IF YOU TRUST GOD. IMEAN IT JUST BRINGS YOU TO THATPLACE OF COMPLETE SURRENDER.

I REMEMBERWHEN I LEFT PROFESSIONALFOOTBALL,I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHERE GOD

WAS GOING TO TAKE ME.AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THEDIRECTION THAT I WAS GOING.HE TOOK ME INTO FULL-TIME

MINISTRY.BUT THEN WHILE I WAS OUT OFFOOTBALL,GOING AFTER THE HEART OF THIS

NATION,I SAID GOD I DON'T UNDERSTANDWHAT YOU ARE DOING.EVERY TIME GOD WAS GETTING

READY TO TAKE ME TO A NEW LEVELIT WAS ALMOST LIKE A LIGHT WERETFOR A TIME.AND THEN I SAW THE GREEN LIGHT

THAT MADE SENSE.HINDSIGHT IS 2020.50/20,GENESIS 50:20,

WHAT MAN MEANS FORYOU,WHAT GOD MEANS FOR GOOD.NOW WE'VE

GOT A POWERFULSHOW FOR YOU TODAY.YOU WILL SEETWO INCREDIBLE STORIES OF

EMILY MEECHAM NEVERKNEW WHENSHE WOULD FEELA STABBING PAIN IN HER SIDE

SOMETIMES IT WOULD BE IN THEMIDDLE OF SLEEP.AND I WOULDAWAKE,

IT WOULD FEEL LIKE A KNIFE WENTTHROUGH MY RIBSAND I COULD NOT MOVE.USUALLY I WOULD GO,

OOOH,AND FEEL THE PAIN AND DEAL WITHTBUT BEING AN ACTIVE PERSON,DANCE TEACHER,

FITNESS INSTRUCTOR IT HURTS.SOMETIMES JUST NOTHING YOU CANDO ABOUT ITIT JUST HURT.

IT HAD BEEN THAT WAYFOR MORE THAN 15 YEARS,EVER SINCE HER CAR WAS HIT BY ADRUNK DRIVER WHEN SHE WAS A

TEENAGER. AND THE SEATBELTPULLED MY RIBSOUT OF PLACE.

AND THERE WASN'T MUCHTHEY COULD DOABOUT THAT.IT WAS JUST KIND OF LEFT THAT

WAY.IN THE YEARS AFTER THAT ITCAUSEDA LOT OF PAIN AND SHORTNESS OF

BREATH.IT WOULD LAST A GOOD 10,15 MINUTES.AND THAT'S A

LONG TIME WHEN YOU ARE IN PAIN. SHE WENT TO NUMEROUS DOCTORSAND CHIROPRACTORSBUT THEY ALL TOLD HER

SHE WOULD SIMPLY HAVETO LIVE WITH THE OCCASIONAL PAINFOR THE REST OF HER LIFE. AND I WOULD PRAY AND SAY GOD,

IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO?IT HURTS.IT IS A HINDRANCE.A LOT OF TIMES I WOULD STAND

ON WHAT HAPPENED TO PAUL. HE HAD A THORN IN HIS FLESH,AND I'M GOING TO HAVE TO DEALWITH THIS.

HER HUSBAND DOUG WANTED TOHELP. IT WOULD BREAK MY HEART TOSEE HER IN PAIN LIKE THAT,

TO FEEL HELPLESS.LIKE I COULDN'TDO SOMETHING FOR HER.I KNEW IT WAS OUT OF MY HANDS.

ALL I COULD DO WAS PRAY. THEN EMILY STARTEDWATCHING700 HUNDRED CLUB

USUALLY WHILE SHE WORKED OUT. IT WAS HURTING AT THE TIMEAT THE VERY TIMETHAT I WAS LISTENING TO THE 700

CLUB.I SAID,LORD LET IT BE ME JUST FOR ONETIME

AND THAT IS WHEN I GOT THE WORDOF KNOWLEDGE. THIS IS AN OLD INJURY.IT WAS A BROKEN RIBS,

I BELIEVE WHEN YOU WERE ATEENAGER.AND YOU JUST HAVE SORT OF LIVEDWITH IT.

PAIN WHEN YOU BREATHE.PAIN WHEN IT GETS COLD.GOD HAS JUST HEALED THAT. I RECEIVED THE WORD AND

HAVE NOT HAD THE PAIN SINCE.IT WAS ODD TO HAVE HAD THATPAIN FOR ALL THOSE YEARSAND FOR IT TO JUST BE GONE.

SHE CALLED HER HUSBAND TOTELL HER THE GOOD NEWS. IT WAS AN EXCITING CALL.IT WAS SOMETHING WHERE SHE WAS

EXCITEDAND YOU COULD HEAR IT IN HERVOICE.SURE ENOUGH IT WAS

THAT SHE RECEIVED HER HEALING. WE HAD BEEN PRAYING ABOUTIT. I BEGAN TO JUMP.

I ACTUALLY DID BACK BENDS.WHICH YOU KNOW I CAN DO TO THISDAY NOWBECAUSE OF THAT INJURY BEING

HEALED. EMILY SAYSTHAT WORD OF KNOWLEDGECHANGE THE WAY

SHE THOUGHT ABOUT GOD. I ALWAYS THOUGHT OF HIM,AS A GOVERNOR OF PEOPLE,KEEPING ORDER.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS AN AWESOMETHING ABOUT GOD.HOW HE DOESKEEP ORDER.

BUT I NEVER THOUGHT OF HIM ASYOUR BEST FRIEND,OR SOMEONE WHO LISTENS TO YOUAND SAYS,

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU WHAT ISBEST FOR YOU.AND THEN HE BRINGS BE TO HIM.YOU DON'T EXPECT ME TO COME UP

ALL THE WAY TO HIM, HE COMES DOYLEVEL. IT IS AMAZING TO SEE THEPOWER OF GOD,

AND WHAT HE CAN DO IN JUST ANINSTANT LIKE THAT.THAT'S WHAT WAS EXCITING FOR US.THE HEALING CAME AND IT IS

STILL THERE TODAY. SO COOL.DID YOU SEE EMILY,THIS DANCE TEACHER,

HEY WELCOMETO THIS HOPE TO GO.TODAY WE ARE TALKINGABOUT BEING UNLEASHED,

REMOVED FROM THE HINDRANCES OFTHE PAST,BREAKING FREEFROM YOUR PAST.

ALLOW THE WORD OF GOD BECAUSETHE BIBLE SAYSIT'S SHARPER THAN A DOUBLE EDGESWORD,

CUTTING SOUL,SPIRIT, JOINT,MARROW.AND PIERCING EVERY THOUGHT, INTT

OF THE HEART.THAT IS HOW GOD MOVES.THAT'S WHY I WANT TO GIVE YOUTHE WORD OF GOD EVERYDAY,

IN ORDER TO FEED YOUR SPIRIT.COLOSSIANS CHAPTER 3:1-4 SAYS,SINCE THEN YOU HAVE BEEN RAISEDWITH CHRIST.

SET YOUR HEARTS ON THEM THINGSABOVE WHERE CHRISTIS SEATEDAT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.

SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE, NEARTHLY THINGS.FOR YOU DIEDAND YOUR LIFE

IS NOW HIDDEN WITH CHRISTIN GOD.WHEN CHRIST WHO IS YOUR LIFEAPPEARS,

THEN YOU ALSO WILL APPEAR WITHHIM IN GLORY.AND THISIS AN AMAZING PORTION RIGHT NOW,

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THE POWEROF SCRIPTURETHAT TELLS US THAT ALMIGHTY GODHAVE AN AMAZING PLAN FOR YOUR

LIFE.BUT FIRST,THE FIRST STEP TO MAKING A NEW,GOD HAS TO FIRS OF ALL ALLOW US

TO BE BORN AGAIN,THEN HE CHANGES TO LIVE AS NEWPEOPLE.IN SHORT,

WE DON'T HAVE TO BE LIKE WEHAVE ALWAYS BEEN.YOU CAN BREAK FREE FROM YOURPAST

AND IT HAPPENS THIS WAY.IF YOU HAVE THREE THINGS INYOUR LIFEYOU CAN BREAK FREE.

NUMBER ONE YOU HAVE TO LOOK UP.INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON YOURPROBLEMS WHEN I FIRST LOOK UP.LISTEN TO WHAT COLOSSIANS 3

SAYS AGAIN:IT SAYSSINCE THEN YOU HAVE BEEN RAISEDWITH CHRIST,

THE BORN AGAIN NOW SET YOURHEARTYOUR HOLY GPS SYSTEMON THE THINGS ABOVE

WHERE CHRIST IS SEATEDAT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.AND SET YOUR MIND ON THE THINGSABOVE,

NOT ON EARTHLY THINGS.WHEN YOU DIEDAND YOUR LIFEIS NOW HIDDEN WITH CHRIST IN

GOD.THEREFORE,THE SECOND THINGYOU'VE GOT TO SET YOUR HEART.

IF YOU BEGIN TO LOOK UP,NOW YOU'VE GOT TO SET THATHEART.YOU'VE GOT TO REALLY DRIVE IT

IN.THAT'S WHY PAUL WRITES,SET YOUR HEART ON THINGS ABOVE.IF WE TRULY SET OUR HEARTS ON

THINGS ABOVE,WE'LL EXPERIENCE THE POWER ANDTHE FREEDOM HERE ON EARTH.NOW THE WORD SAYS

THE WORD "SET" MEANS TO SEEKSOMETHINGOUT WITH THE DESIRE TO POSSESSIT.

JESUS PUT IT THIS WAYIN MATTHEW 6:21.FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE ISTHERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO.

HE ALSO SAID IN MATTHEW 6:33,SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OFGOD AND EVERYTHING ELSE ISCOMING.

IF OUR FOCUSIS IN THE THINGSTHAT WILL ULTIMATELYRUST, TARNISH,

BREAKDOWN OR BURN UP,OUR ENERGY AND EMOTIONS WILL BEMISPLACED.IF WE SEEK FIRST

AND ALLOW HIM TO BECOMEOUR ULTIMATE TREASURE IN OURHEARTEVERYTHING ELSE WILL FOLLOW.

KNOWING THAT CHRIST IS SEATEDAT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.NOW THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.PSALMS 1:10 SAIDÃTHIS IS

PROBABLY THE MOST QUOTED OLDTESTAMENTPASSAGE IN THE NEW TESTAMENTTHE LORD SAID TO MY LORD,

SIT AT MY RIGHT HANDUNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES YOURFOOT STOOL.JESUS IS ON HIGH.

HE SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OFTHE FATHERWHICH SHOWS US THATHIS REDEMPTIVE WORK

IS NOT COMPLETED,IT'S A DONE DEAL.THE IMPERATIVE NOW IS TO SETOUR HEARTS ON THE THINGS ABOVE,

TO BREAK FREE FROM THE PAST.WHEN YOU SET YOUR MIND ANDTHOSE THINGS ABOVE,THAN THE REST OF YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCESARE GOING TO FOLLOW.AND THAT WILL UNLEASH YOU,AND THAT IS YOUR HOPE TO GO.

HMM. THAT IS INCREDIBLE.THERE IS TRUE FREEDOM IN JESUS.FREEDOM FROM ENVYING,FREEDOM FROM SHAME,

FROM GUILT,FROM HATRED OF OTHERS,FROM UNFORGIVENESS IN YOURHEART.

EVERY SINGLE THING THAT YOU AREPOSSIBLYGOING THROUGH RIGHT NOW,THERE IS FREEDOM FROM IT.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT,WHEN WE DON'T HAVE FREEDOMIT'S LIKE CARRYING A REALLY BIGBACKPACK,

ALL THE TIME.YOU MAY NOT EVEN BE AWARE OFTHAT IT'S THERE.IT'S JUST THAT YOU ARE HEAVY,

YOU ARE HEAVY WITH PAIN,HEAVY WITH EMOTIONAL THINGSTHAT ARE BOGGING YOU DOWN ANDKEEPING YOU FROM WALKING IN

VICTORY.WHEN YOU FIND JESUSCHRIST,HE IS ABLE TO TAKE A BACKPACK

RIGHT OFF OF YOUAND BRING YOU FREEDOMAND IT IS SO PROFOUNDAND SO AMAZING THAT IT WILL

ABSOLUTELY CHANGE YOUR LIFEFROM THIS MOMENT ONIF YOU WILL RECEIVE IT.UP NEXT,

MORE HIDDEN SECRETS FOUND INTHE BIBLE. FOR THE PAST SEVERAL SEGMENTSWE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT THE

FEAST OF PASSOVER;WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT A LOTOF HIDDEN MEANINGIN THE TEXT AS WE LOOK

AT THE CULTURE OF JESUS.AND TODAY WE ARE GOING TOSWITCH GEARS A LITTLE BITAND LOOK AT ANOTHER FEAST.

A VERY IMPORTANT FEAST.TODAY IT'S KNOWN AS ROSHHASHANAH.OR HEAD OF THE YEAR.

IT'S BASICALLY THE JEWISH NEWYEAR.DURING THE TIME THE BIBLE,IT WAS CALLED THE FEAST OF

TRUMPETSBECAUSEÃYOU GUESSED ITTHE TRUMPET WAS THE MOSTIMPORTANT

PIECE OR SYMBOL IN THAT FEAST.THE TRUMPET PLAYED A VERYIMPORTANT ROLEIN THE FIRST CENTURY

JEWISH WEDDING.YOU MIGHT BE ASKINGWHY ARE YOU TALKING ABOUTA WEDDING WHEN YOU ARE TALKING

ABOUT THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS?TRUST ME.YOU WILL SEE THE SIGNIFICANCEAND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR US

AS BELIEVERS TODAY.BACK IN THE FIRST CENTURY,IF A MAN WAS INTERESTED IN AWOMAN

IT WASN'T ON THE WAY THAT WE DOTODAY.YOU WEREN'T ALLOWED TO JUSTGO UP TO THE GIRL AND ASK HER

OUT OR BEGIN TO TALK TO HER.BUT THERE WAS A SET;THERE WAS AN ORDER THAT WAS INPLACE.

AND YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW IT TOTHE T IF IT WAS GOING TO WORK.WE ARE CALLED "THE BRIDE OFCHRIST"

ALL THE TIME IN THE BIBLE.AND I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUTAS A MAN IT IS VERY AWKWARDFOR ME TO THINK OF MYSELF

AS THE BRIDE OF CHRIST.IS THAT JUST FLOWERY LANGUAGE?IS IT SYMBOLIC?DOES IT ACTUALLY MEAN ANYTHING?

TO UNDERSTANDTO GET THE FULL BACKGROUND,TO GET THE SUBTEXT,WE NEED TO KNOW HOW WEDDINGS

WERE DONE AT THAT TIME.WE CAN'T LOOK AT HOWWEDDINGS ARE DONE TODAYBECAUSE TODAY THE BRIDE IS THE

STAR OF THE WHOLE SHOW.IF WE ARE THE BRIDE,DOES THAT MEAN THAT WE ARE THESTAR?

OF COURSE NOT.WE HAVE TO LOOK BACK AND SEEHOW IT WAS DONEIN THE FIRST CENTURY.

NOW, IN THE FIRST CENTURYIT WAS THE MANWHO DID EVERYTHING.HE DID ALL THE PREPARATION.

HE DID THE INVITATIONS.HE PICKED THE FOOD.HE SET EVERYTHING.IT WAS EVEN HIS JOB TO DECORATE

THE FAMILY HOMEAND SO DURING THIS WHOLEWEDDING PROCESSTHERE WAS A STAGE KNOWN AS

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR.AFTER PRESENTING MY PLEA TO THEFATHERAND AFTER BEING APPROVED

BY THE FATHER,THE NEXT STAGEWAS TO SIT DOWNWITH A GIRL THAT I WANTED TO

MARRYAND I HAVE TO PRESENT SOMETHINGTO HER TO SEE IF SHE WOULD TAKEMY PROPOSAL.

THE FATHER WOULD GOINTO THE ROOM WHERE THEDAUGHTER WAS SITTING,WHERE SHE PREPARED A MEAL

IN ANTICIPATION OF THE COVENANTTHAT WAS ABOUT TO TAKE PLACE,AND WHEN THE FATHER WOULD SAYTO THE GUY,

GO-AHEAD TO THE DOORYOU CAN MAKE YOUR APPEAL TO MYDAUGHTER,THE MAN WOULD STAND AT THE DOOR

AND HE WOULD NOCK.AND THEN HE WOULD WAIT.AND AS HE WAS KNOCKINGTHE GIRL GET UP FROM WHERE SHE

WAS SEATEDSHE WOULD COME UP TO WHERE HEWAS.SHE WOULD OPEN THE DOOR JUST A

LITTLE BITGO BACK AND SIT DOWN.AND THEN HE WOULD COME IN.I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT

REVELATION CHAPTER 3VERSE 20REALLY SOUNDS FAMILIAR.JESUS, THE GROOM, SAYS HERE I

AM.I STAND AT THE DOOR AND I KNOCK.AND IF ANYONE HEARS MY VOICEAND OPENS THE DOOR

I WILL COME INAND EAT WITH THAT PERSONAND THEY WITH ME.YOU SEE

HE STANDS AT THE DOOR AND HEKNOCKS.THE ONLY THING WE NEED TO DO ISOPEN THE DOOR

AND HE WILL DO HE WILL COME INHE'LL SIT AND HE WILL SITWITH US. SO GOOD JOE.

WELCOME BACK.UP NEXT,STARTING NEW REVELATIONSIN THE FIGHT AGAINST STREET

GANGS. IT IS A LIFESTYLE GLAMORIZEDBUT TODAY'SHIP-HOP CULTURE

AND MADE POPULAR ON SITES LIKEYOUTUBE AND MYSPACE.FOR TROY EVANS OF GRAND RAPIDS,MICHIGAN,

THE FIRST STEP TO THIS LIFESTYLEWAS NOT THAT UNUSUAL. I GUESS I RAN AROUND15 YEARS OLD

WHEN I STARTED SKIPPING SCHOOL.DOING SOME OF THE NORMAL THINGSTHAT YOU WOULD SEE IN KIDSHEADED DOWN THE WRONG PATH.

THE PATH THAT EVENTUALLY LEDTROYINTO THE GANG LIFEWHERE HE WAS WELCOMED WITH OPEN

ARMS. THEY WERE VERY LOVINGAND THEY ACCEPTED ME FOR WHO IWAS.

I QUICKLY JOINED BECAUSE OF AFRIEND,MY BEST FRIEND.HE JOINED AND WE DECIDED

TOGETHER TO GET INVOLVED. TROY QUICKLYLEARN THE WAYSOF HIS NEW FAMILY.

THE DRUGS WERE MY BIG THING. STREET GANGHAVE BEENBIG THINGS IN CITIES LIKE LA.

NEW YORK AND CHICAGO.ACCORDING TO THE FBI.THERE ARE SOME30,000

VIOLENT STREET GANGS,MOTORCYCLE GANGS,AND PRISON GANGS IN THE US.SOME OF THE MORE ORGANIZED AND

INFAMOUSARE THE CRIPS AND THE BLOODS.THE LATIN KINGSWITH AS MANY AS 50,000 MEMBERS

AND MS 13A GROUP SO NOTORIOUSTHAT THE FBI HAS ASSIGNEDAN ENTIRE TASK FORCE TO IT.

MS 13 OUT OF EL SALVADORHAS COST A LOT OF HAVOC,A LOT OF HARM THROUGHOUT MANYCOMMUNITIES.

IT HAS 13,000 GANG MEMBERSBUT IS PREVALENT IN 34STATES.THAT IS A NATIONAL CONCERN.

MANY ARE EXPANDING THEIRTERROR AND OPERATIONSTO CITIES AND TOWNSWHERE RESIDENTS ARE ACCUSTOMED

TO LEAVING THEIR DOORS UNLOCKED.HERB GROUND,HEAD OF THE CRIMINAL GANGSDIVISION

FOR THE FEDERAL BUREAU OFINVESTIGATION. WHAT WE STARTED TO SEE MAYBEFIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO

IS THAT GANG STARTED TO SPREADTHE SMALLER COMMUNITIES INAMERICAMOVING TO THE WEST COAST TO THE

OMAHA REGIONAND THEN GOING ON FROM DENVER ONTO CHARLOTTE. DUNN, NORTH CAROLINA IS HOME

TO ABOUT 10,000. WE HAD SOME MS 13 MEMBERSFROM NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIESTHAT ACTUALLY TAGGED

THE SIDE OF THIS OLD AUTO PARTSBUILDINGON THE SIDE AND ON THE OPPOSITESIDE.

AND ALONG WITH SOME OTHER AREASIN TOWNTHAT THEY TAGGED WITH. RESIDENTS ARE CONCERNED.

IT REALLY UPSETS MEBECAUSE THE GANGSA REALLY TAKING OVER.YOU LOOK AT CERTAIN PARTS OF

TOWNAND SEE HOW IT'S GONE DOWN.AND IF YOU RIDE, LOOK,YOU SEE IT'S NOTHING BUT GANGS.

IT MAKES ME FEEL UPSETTHAT IT IS AROUND HEREBECAUSE I'VE GOT LITTLEBROTHERS AND SISTERS.

A LITTLE FURTHER UP THESTATE IN ELIZABETH CITYOFFICER GARY BREYSAYS NATIONAL GANGS HAVE BECOME

A MENACE. ABOUT THREE YEARS AGOWE HAD THREE GUYSCOME IN FROM NEW YORK.

THEY ALL MOVED HERE TO ELIZABETHCITYPROBABLY TO ESCAPESOME TYPE OF PROSECUTION IN

NEW YORK.AND THAT IS WHERE WE STARTED TOSEETHE BLOOD GANGS OPEN UP.

WE HAD ABOUT55,000 GANG MEMBERSIN 1975.FAST-FORWARD

TWO 2008WE HAVE 960,000 GANGMEMBERS. BROWN SAYS

ONE OF THE BIGGEST REASONSIS THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THEINTERNETBOTH TO COMMUNICATE AND RECRUIT.

THAT BRINGS US BACK TOTROY EVANS.AFTER BECOMING A CHRISTIANHE WALKED AWAY FROM THE GANG

LIFE.TODAY HE TRIES TO STEERAT RISK KIDS AWAY FROM GANGS.THE SUBJECT OF THE RECENT

WORKSHOP HE HOSTEDIN GRAND RAPIDS. IT REALLY STARTED BECAUSE ISEE THE NEED

IN THE CHURCH SPECIFICALLY INSMALLER URBAN COMMUNITIES. EVENIN SUBURBAN COMMUNITIESWHERE THE LACK OF INFORMATION,

NOT KNOWING ABOUT THIS EPIDEMICNOT KNOWING ABOUT THIS HIDEOUSDISEASE CALLED GANGS. MEMBERS OF TROY'S FORMER GANG

ATTENDED THE WORKSHOP. WHY DID YOU WANT TOBECOME A MEMBER? I JUSTÃI JUST DIDN'T HAVE

NOTHING TO DO AT THE TIME.JUST WANTED TO BE SOMEBODY. 33-YEAR-OLD JOHN MCKINNEYHAS BEEN A MEMBER SINCE HE WAS

12. I HAD PROBLEMS AT HOME.MY DAD WAS A DRUG ADDICT;MY MAMA WAS AN ALCOHOLIC.

AND A DRUG ADDICT.I GREW UP IN THE RANKS.I CAME UP IN THE RANKSAND I BECAME A LEADER.

BUT JOHN ARGUES HIS GANGIS NOT A BAD INFLUENCE. WE ARE A PEACEFULORGANIZATION.

OKAY?WE ARE NOT NEGATIVE PEOPLE.BELIEVE US OR NOTI AM A CHRISTIAN.

IT IS CRAZY TO SAYTHIS IS A VICE --HOW CAN YOU BE A CHRISTIAN?WE ARE CHRISTIANS!

MEANWHILE GUN SPECIALISTSBLAME CERTAIN THINGS IN THEMEDIAIN THE BREAKDOWN OF FAMILIES

FOR RISING GANG MEMBERSHIP. KIDS ARE WATCHING TVAND EVERY DAY THERE WATCHING TVAND THIS IS GLORIFIED

AT THIS POINT THEY DON'T WANTTO BE WITHUSED TO BE ON TVTHEY DON'T WANT TO BE

THE BILL COSBY KIDS ANYMORE.THEY WANT TO BEE WHAT THEY SEEON TV,WHICH IS 50 CENTS

SNOOP DOGAND WHOEVER ELSE IS OUTTHERE. FORMER GANG MEMBER

JOSÉ VELEZ OF CHICAGO ILLINOISOFFERS THIS WARNINGTO THOSE WHO THINK THAT WAY. I TELL THEM,

IF YOU THINK IT'S CUTEGO TO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD MORGUEAND LET ME KNOW IF THAT IS CUTEWHEN YOU SEE THAT BODY WITH

THREE ARE FOR BULLET HOLES,AGES 16 AND 17. AS FOR TROY,HE'S JUST THANKFUL THAT HE MADE

IT OF THE GANG ALIVE. GOD HAS BLESSED MESO THAT I CAN MAKE IT OUTTO TALK ABOUT THAT.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLETHAT HAVE NOT MADE IT OUT,TO LIVE TO TALK ABOUT IT.OR, THEY ARE BEHIND BARS

FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES,TO CONSIDER MORE THAN JUST ADAY. CHARLENE ISRAEL,

CBN NEWS. YOU KNOW I'VE HAD THE OPPORTYTO WORK WITH HIGH-RISK YOUTHFOR ABOUT SIX YEARS NOW

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THATCONTINUE TO SAYJUST AS IN THE PIECE WE JUSTSAW

WAS THAT I WANTED TO FEELLIKE I BELONGED.I WANTED A FAMILY.AND BECAUSE THEY FEEL

DISCONNECTEDPERHPAS THE FAMILY HAS BROKENUPOR THEY DON'T COME FROM A CLOSE

FAMILYTHEY END UP GOING TO THE STREETAND FINDING OTHERSTHAT WILL LEAD THEM DOWN THE

WRONG PATHAND YOU KNOW IN OUR SITUATIONWE HAVE SEEN TWO DEATHSOF THESE YOUTH.

ONE VIOLENTLY STABBED AND KILLEDON AN EVENINGFOR JUST NOTHING,THERE WAS NO GOOD REASON

AT ALLTHE WORD OF GOD SAYS THATGOD HATES VIOLENCE,HE HATES IT,

AND IF SOMEONE IS ENTICING YOUINTO A LIFESTYLE THATWILL CAUSE VIOLENCE,STEALING AND DOING

ALL OF THESE THINGSTHAT END UP WITH YOU BEINGINCARCERATEDOR POTENTIALLY BEING WORSE,

BEING DEADTHAT IS NOT THE WAY TO GO.THAT IS NOT THE WAY YOUR FAMILY.PSALMS 11:5 SAYS,

THE LORD TESTS AND PROVESTHE RIGHTEOUSBUT HIS SOULABHORS THE WICKED AND HIM WHO

LOVES VIOLENCE.IT MEANS GOD HATES VIOLENCE.HE HATES WHEN WE FOLLOW A PATHTHAT LEADS TO THAT.

HIS WAYS ARE PEACE.HIS WAYS ARE JOY.AND CAN I TELL YOU SOMETHING?GOD FORMED YOU FOR FAR GREATER

THAN THIS CHAOSTHAT IS CALLING YOU NOW.GOD HAS A PURPOSEAND THE DESTINY

AND IF YOU GO THAT WAYYOU'RE GOING TO MISS IT.TODAY'S THE DAYWHEN YOU NEED TO

BRING IT BACK AND GIVE YOUR LIFOJESUS. AMEN.YOU KNOW LAURA LYNN

LORDROSE UP IN MEIN PSALMS 11:3 SAYS,IF THE RIGHTEOUS

FOUNDATIONS,ARE DESTROYED WHAT SHALL THERIGHTEOUS DO?BUILDING AGAIN.

NOT SO MUCH TALKINGOF THOSE THAT NEED SALVATIONTODAYBUT I'M TALKING

TO THE BODY OF CHRIST NEEDSALVATION.THAT WE AS CANADIANS NEED TORISE UP
