Former contestant from NBC's The Voice Holly Tucker shares how faith keeps her strong in challenging times. Plus, Jennifer inherits a family farm just when drought and hail threaten to cause a crop failure. Read Transcript


A MAJOR ARCHEOLOGICAL

DISCOVERY.

THIS SIDE IS ABSOLUTELY

MAGNIFICENT.

THAT COULD REVEAL THE

HOUSE OF THE PROPHET

ELIJAH.

PLUS A TEACHER WHO WAS

TONGUE-TIED.

IT WAS A CONSTANT, DAILY

PAIN, MINUTE BY MINUTE.

FIND OUT HOW SHE GOT

HEALED.

I CLAIMED THAT WORD FOR

MYSELF.

AND, ALSO, A WORD FROM

"THE VOICE" FINALIST, HOLLY

TUCKER.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

A FEW YEARS AGO, WE REJECTED

KING GEORGE.

WE DIDN'T WANT A KING.

BUT I THINK AMERICA REALLY

YEARNS FOR A KING.

WE JUST LOVE ROYALTY.

SO WE'RE FASCINATED.

ALL OF THE TV SHOWS ARE

TUNED INTO THE BIRTH OF A

YOUNG SON.

THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF

CAMBRIDGE -- HE'S A LITTLE

KID, EIGHT POUNDS, SIX

OUNCES, AND HE IS THIRD IN

LINE FOR THE THRONE OF

ENGLAND.

Terry: AND MUCH OF THE

WORLD IS REJOICING WITH THE

ROYAL COUPLE AS THEY START

THEIR NEW LIVES AS PARENTS.

WELCOME!

Reporter: THE ROYAL

BABY HAS ARRIVED.

A HEALTHY BABY BOY, WEIGHING

IN AT EIGHT POUNDS, SIX

OUNCES.

IT IS A WONDERFUL MOMENT

FOR A WARM AND LOVING

COUPLE, WHO HAVE A BRAND NEW

BABY BOY.

Reporter: KEEPING WITH

TRADITION, THE BABY

ANNOUNCEMENT WAS POSTED ON

AN EASEL OUTSIDE BUCKINGHAM

PALACE.

BUT IN A SIGN OF A NEW

CENTURY, THE ANNOUNCEMENT

WAS MADE TO THE WORLD FIRST

THROUGH AN E-MAIL TO THE

PRESS.

AND SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKS,

LIKE TWITTER.

IN A BRIEF STATEMENT, PRINCE

WILLIAM SAID HE AND KATE

COULDN'T BE HAPPIER.

THE LONDON LANDMARKS

ANNOUNCED THE NEWS, AND

FOUNTAINS TURNED BLUE, AS

DID NIAGARA FALLS.

I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER.

Reporter: BRITISH

PAPERS REFLECTED THE

NATIONAL MOOD.

THIS ONE ANNOUNCING THAT THE

REGAL HAS LANDED, AND THE

SUN TEMPORARILY CHANGING THE

SPELLING OF THEIR TITLE IN

HONOR OF THE NEW PRINCE.

THEY REENACT THE SEEN FROM

31 YEARS AGO, WHEN PRINCE

WILLIAM HIMSELF WAS

PRESENTED TO THE WORLD.

MEANWHILE, ENGLISH BOOKIES

HAVE BEEN BETTING ON THE

BABY'S NAME FOR MONTHS, BUT

NOW THEY SAY THERE IS

NOTHING NEW TO BET ON.

PEOPLE ARE BETTING ON

EVERYTHING.

AN INTERESTING THE ONE IS

THE BABY'S FIRST WORD.

Reporter: WILLIAM AND

KATE WILL BRING THEIR

NEWBORN SON HOME TO

KENSINGTON PALACE, AND LATER

THIS WEEK, HE WILL MEET HIS

GREAT GRANDMOTHER, THE

QUEEN.

THE BABY IS THE THIRD IN

LINE TO THE THRONE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: TERRY, WE LIKE

ROYALTY.

WHAT IS IT WITH THAT?

Terry: I THINK WE HAVE

FASCINATED BY IT BECAUSE WE

DON'T HAVE ROYALTY IN THE

UNITED STATES.

I THINK JUST THE HISTORY,

THE LINEAGE, JUST HOW THEY

LIVE.

IT IS QUITE A SPECTACLE.

Pat: WE'VE GOT RICH

GUYS, MILLIONAIRES, MAYBE

WE'VE GOT THE BUSHES.

MAYBE WE'LL HAVE ANOTHER

BUSH IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

Terry: I THINK WE'RE

GOOD IN WASHINGTON.

Pat: WELL, HERE AT

HOME, YOU KIND OF WISH MAYBE

WE DID HAVE A KING.

THEY'RE FIGHTING ABOUT THIS,

THAT, AND THE OTHER THING.

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

IS NOW TAKING A HARD LOOK AT

THE GOVERNMENT'S MASSIVE

ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE

PROGRAM, THE ONE THAT SOME

PEOPLE CALL BIG BROTHER.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

Lee: BACK HERE IN THE

COLONIES, TEA PARTY

CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERAL

DEMOCRATS HAVE COME TOGETHER

TO TRY TO MAKE CHANGES TO

THE NATIONAL SECURITY

AGENCY'S SURVEILLANCE

PROGRAM.

SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE

STRONGLY DEFENDED THE

PROGRAM, SAYING IT IS

IMPORTANT TO NATIONAL

SECURITY.

BUT THE UNUSUAL COALITION OF

CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERALS

HAVE EXPRESSED SERIOUS

CONCERNS ABOUT GOVERNMENT

SURVEILLANCE, ALL PART OF

THE ONGOING DEBATE OVER

PRIVACY VERSUS SECURITY.

THE HOUSE IS ALSO

CONSIDERING MEASURES

LIMITING PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

ABILITY FOR MILITARY ACTION

IN SYRIA.

BOTH ISSUES, PART OF THE

LATEST BILL ON DEFENSE

SPENDING.

THERE IS TALK OF U.S.

SENATOR TED CRUZ RUNNING FOR

PRESIDENT.

CBN NEWS SPOKE EXCLUSIVELY

WITH CRUZ'S FATHER.

HE TOLD HIS SON WHEN HE WAS

A YOUNG BOY THAT GOD HAS

DESTINED HIM FOR GREATNESS.

HE FUELED SPECULATION THAT

CRUZ MAY BE INTERESTED IN

RUNNING FOR THE HIGHEST

OFFICE IN THE LAND.

HIS FATHER WAS AT THE EVENT,

AND THE PASTS PRAYED FOR HIM

AND HIS SON.

CBN'S DAVID BRODY TALKED TO

THE ELDER CRUZ ABOUT HIS

SON.

WHEN HE WAS FOUR, I USED

TO READ BIBLE STORIES TO HIM

ALL OF THE TIME.

AND I WOULD DECLARE AND

PROCLAIM THE WORD OF GOD

OVER HIM.

AND I WOULD JUST SAY, YOU

KNOW, TED, YOU HAVE BEEN

GIFTED ABOVE ANY MAN THAT I

KNOW.

AND GOD HAS DESTINED YOU FOR

GREATNESS.

I STARTED MAKING

DECLARATIONS ABOUT THE WORD

OF GOD, EVER DAY.

Lee: FASCINATING.

NEXT WEEK, DAVID WILL HAVE

MORE FROM THAT PASTOR'S

CONFERENCE FROM IOWA,

INCLUDING INTERVIEWS WITH

SENATOR TED CRUZ, AND

SENATOR RAND PAUL, AND THE

NEED FOR SPIRITUAL REVIVAL

IN AMERICA.

A LARGE MAJORITY OF

AMERICANS SUPPORT RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM WHEN IT CONFLICTS

WITH GAY RIGHTS.

RASMUSSIN REPORTS THAT.

THEY BELIEVE A CHRISTIAN

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER HAS THE

RIGHT TO REFUSE TO WORK AT A

GAY WEDDING, IF IT VIT

VIOLATES HIS OR HER

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

IT IS THE POPE'S FIRST

INTERNATIONAL TRIP SINCE

ASSUMING THE PAPACY EARLIER

THIS YEAR.

ON THE WAY FROM THE AIRPORT,

THE DRIVER OF THE POPE'S

VEHICLE GOT LOST.

APPARENTLY HE TURNED OFF OF

A HIGHWAY THAT HAD BEEN

CLEARED OF TRAFFIC, AND ON

TO A BUSY STREET.

CROWDS OF PEOPLE RUSHED THE

CAR, TRYING TO GET A

GLIMPSE, OR EVEN A

BLESSING.

THE INCIDENT GAVE HIS

SECURITY DETAIL A FEW

ANXIOUS MOMENTS, BUT THE

POPE REPORTEDLY LOVED IT.

THE POLICE CLASHED WITH

DEMONSTRATORS WHO WERE

PROTESTING THE COST OF THE

POPE'S VISIT, ABOUT

$52 MILLION OF GOVERNMENT

MONEY IN BRAZIL.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY SAYS ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS WILL START

TALKING AGAIN SOON.

THEY WILL DISCUSS A POSSIBLE

PALESTINIAN STATE, AND THE

KEY QUESTION OF WHETHER OR

NOT JERUSALEM SHOULD BE

DIVIDED.

JOHN WAGGI HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: IT'S BEEN

FIVE YEARS SINCE ISRAEL AND

THE PALESTINIANS HELD

OFFICIAL NEGOTIATION.

NOW A NEW SECRETARY OF STATE

WANTS TO BRING THE TWO SIDES

BACK TOGETHER.

THE REPRESENTATIVES OF

TWO PROUD PEOPLE TODAY HAVE

DECIDED THAT THE DIFFICULT

ROAD AHEAD IS WORTH

TRAVELLING.

Reporter: IT IS UNCLEAR

HOW JOHN KERRY PULLED OFF

THE DEAL OR WHAT IS IN THE

DETAILS.

MAYBE THERE HAS BEEN

CERTAIN AMERICAN PROMISES

MADE TO THE PALESTINIANS.

IT COULD BE FINANCIAL.

IT COULD BE POLITICAL,

DIPLOMATIC, AND POSSIBLY

THERE WAS PRESSURE LEVIED AT

ISRAEL.

Reporter: THE BIGGER

CHALLENGE: PROBLEMS BEFORE

ANY TALKING BEGINS.

THE PALESTINIANS AREN'T

EXACTLY UNITED.

HAMAS, THE TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION CONTROLLING THE

GAZA STRIP, REJECTED THE

TALKS OUTRIGHT, AND

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

OFFICIALS IN RAMALLAH SAY IT

IS NOT YET A DONE DEAL.

AND PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU

ALSO HAS CONDITIONS.

HE HOPES TO PREVENT A

ONE-STATE SOLUTION THAT

WOULD INCLUDE MAKING

MILLIONS OF PALESTINIANS

ISRAEL CITIZENS, AND PREVENT

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ANOTHER

IRAN-SPONSORED TERRORIST

STATE.

BOTH SIDES OF SKEPTICAL.

HE SEEMS SO RELUCTANT TO

RESUME THE NEGOTIATIONS, AND

SO RELUCTANT, OR MAYBE

UNWILLING, TO MAYBE THE

NECESSARY CONCESSIONS ON THE

PALESTINIAN SIDE.

THE PRESSURE FROM THE

AMERICANS IS MAINLY ON THE

PALESTINIANS TO ACCEPT

AMERICAN MEDIATION AND TO

ACCEPT ISRAELI CONDITIONS.

Reporter: THE

PALESTINIANS DEMAND ISRAEL

STOP BUILDING IN BIBLICAL

JUDEA AND SOMARIA, AND

RELEASE MORE THAN 80

CONVICTED PALESTINIAN

TERRORISTS BEFORE THE TALKS

EVEN START.

AND IT IS CLEAR THAT

DIVIDING JERUSALEM WILL BE

ON THEIR AGENDA, A

DEALBREAKER FOR ISRAEL.

DURING THE LAST 100 YEARS

OF THE ISRAEL-ARAB CONFLICT

WHICH PRECEDES ISRAELI

ESTABLISHMENT, THERE HAS

BEEN AMPLE EVIDENCE THAT THE

CONFLICT HAS BEEN OVER THE

EXISTENCE, RATHER THAN THE

SIZE OF ISRAEL.

Reporter: AN ISRAELI

DIPLOMAT SAYS THE U.S.

HASN'T LEARNED FROM PAST

MISTAKES.

THE OTHER ISSUE, WHICH IS

MIND-BOGGLING, IS FOR THE

U.S. TO BE PREOCCUPIED RIGHT

NOW WITH THE PALESTINIAN

ISSUE WHILE THE MIDDLE EAST

IS BURNING.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

KERRY, THE TALKS COULD BEGIN

IN WASHINGTON THIS WEEK, BUT

HOW LONG THEY'LL LAST AND

WHERE THEY'LL LEAD REMAINS

TO BE SEEN.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS.

Lee: PAT, JOHN KERRY

HAS BEEN SECRETARY OF STATE

FOR ONLY A BRIEF TIME, BUT

YOU GET THE IMPRESSION THIS

IS A MAJOR FOCUS FOR HIM.

Pat: WELL, IT IS, BUT,

LEE, I THINK IT IS AN

EXERCISE IN FUTELITY. FUTILITY.

THE PALESTINIANS DON'T HAVE

ANYBODY TO SPEAK FOR THEM.

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY IS

VERY WEAK, AND IT LACKS

CERTAIN LEGITIMACY.

IT IS GOING TO BE EXTREMELY

HARD FOR THE ISRAELIS TO

FIND A NEGOTIATING PARTNER.

AT THE SAME TIME, I WOULD

SAY THIS FROM A PROPHETIC

STANDPOINT, EVERY TIME THE

UNITED STATES GETS INVOLVED

IN SOME KIND OF PRESSURE ON

ISRAEL TO SPLIT THEIR LAND,

THERE IS SOME NATURAL

DISASTER THAT HAPPENS HERE

IN AMERICA.

THERE WAS A VERY COGENT BOOK

WRITTEN ABOUT THAT, ONE

AFTER THE OTHER OF DISASTERS

THAT COME ON AMERICA.

I'LL TELL YOU, JERUSALEM WAS

GIVEN TO THE JEWS.

IT IS THEIR CAPITAL, AND THE

WHOLE IDEA OF SPLITTING THAT

CAPITAL IS JUST FOLLY.

AND, MARK MY WORD, THAT WILL

BE THE FINAL STICKING POINT

ALL THE WAY DOWN THE LINE.

THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO WANT JERUSALEM AS

THEIR CAPITAL, AND THE JEWS

ARE GOING TO SAY, NO WAY, IT

IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, AND

THERE IS GOING TO BE A FIGHT

OVER JERUSALEM.

AND WHEN YOU READ THE BIBLE,

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS

THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON.

WE READ ALL OF THESE THINGS

IN THE "WASHINGTON POST"

ABOUT THE BATTLE OF

ARMAGEDDON.

THERE IS NO BATTLE OF

ARMAGEDDON.

THE BATTLE IS THE BATTLE OF

JERUSALEM.

THE FORCES GATHER AT

ARMAGEDDON, AND THEY MARCH

ON TO JERUSALEM.

THAT'S WHERE THE WAR IS, AND

THE WAR WILL BE OVER

JERUSALEM.

I REMEMBER SPEAKING WITH

YASSER ARAFAT SEVERAL YEARS

AGO, AND HE SAID, WE'LL FIND

A WAY.

THEY'RE GOING TO TRY TO

FINAGLE A WAY, BUT IF THE

UNITED STATES TRIES TO

PRESSURE JERUSALEM TO GIVE

UP HALF OF JERUSALEM, GOD

WILL COME ON THE UNITED

STATES.

Terry: AFTER ALMOST 15

YEARS OF DIGGING,

ARCHEOLOGISTS MAY HAVE MADE

A DISCOVERY OF BIBLICAL

PROPORTIONS.

EVERY SCOOP OF DIRT

PROVES THE BIBLE.

Terry: HEAR WHAT THEY

FOUND AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, HE WAS A

SUCCESSOR TO ELIJAH THE

PROPHET.

HE HEALED THE SICK, HE

RAISED THE DEAD, HE CALLED

DOWN FIRE FROM HEAVEN.

WHO WAS HE?

THE PROPHET ELIJAH, ONE OF

THE GREAT FIGURES OF THE

BIBLE.

BUT WHAT WAS EVERYDAY LIFE

LIKE DURING THE LIFETIME OF

ELIJAH.

CBN NEWS HAS THIS EXCLUSIVE

LOOK AT AN ARCHEOLOGICAL

SITE THAT TELLS US MORE

ABOUT THE ERA, AND AS CHRIS

MITCHELL REPORTS, IT COULD

ACTUALLY BE THE HOME OF THE

PROPHET.

Reporter: THIS IS

TELLRAHUD, IN THE JORDAN

VALLEY.

DURING 16 YEARS OF DIGGING,

ARCHEOLOGISTS UNCOVERED A

3,000-YEAR-OLD WELL-PLANNED

CITY.

AND THEY FOUND A UNIQUE

BUILDING THAT MIGHT HAVE BE

THE HOUSE OF ELIJAH.

THE HOUSE WAS FULL WITH

OBJECTS OF UNIQUE TYPE.

TWO ALTERS WE FOUND THERE

THAT WERE USED FOR BURNING

INCENSE.

Reporter: AND ARMY

POINTS OUT THE DIFFERENCE IN

THE STRUCTURE OF THE HOUSE.

NOBODY'S HOUSE HAS ONE

ENTRANCE, LEADING INTO A

LARGE SPACE, WITH ROOMS ALL

AROUND.

THIS HOUSE WAS DIVIDED INTO

TWO WINGS.

THE TWO WINGS WERE CONNECTED

TO ONE ANOTHER THROUGH THE

BEDROOM.

AND EACH ONE OF THE WINGS

HAS AN OPENING TOWARDS THE

STREET.

Reporter: OUTSIDE THE

ROOM WERE INCENT ALTERS.

DURING THE EXCAVATION,

ARCHEOLOGISTS DISCOVERED

THIS SPECIAL ROOM INSIDE THE

HOUSE, WITH A TABLE AND A

BENCH INSIDE.

THEY ALSO DISCOVERED A

POTTERY CHARD WITH THE NAME

ELIJAH ON IT, WHICH LEADS

SOME TO BELIEVE THIS WAS THE

ROOM OF THE PROPHET ELIJAH.

WE FOUND AN INK

DESCRIPTION, WITH RED, INC.,

INK.

HE WENT FROM JERICHO TO

SOMARIA TO SHUNO.

I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE THIS

PARTICULAR ELIJAH WE FOUND

IS THE BIBLICAL ELIJAH.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO

SAY.

BUT IT IS VERY TEMPTING

BECAUSE IT IS EXACTLY THE

SAME PERIOD.

Reporter: ELIJAH, THE

PROPHET, WAS KNOWN FOR

TELLING THE WIDOW TO BORROW

EMPTY POTS, AND FILL THEM

WITH OIL, AND SELL THEM TO

PAY HER CREDITORS.

AND INSTRUCTING THE SYRIAN

ARMY COMMANDER TO WASH IN

THE JORDAN RIVER SEVEN TIMES

TO BE HEALED OF LEPROSY.

THIS ARCHEOLOGIST CALLS THE

EVIDENCE COMPELLING.

WITH ONLY SIX OTHER

PEOPLE BY THE NAME OF ELIJAH

KNOWN AT THAT TIME FOR A

COUPLE OF CENTURIES, WE CAN

SOMEHOW BELIEVE THAT EITHER

THERE WAS JUST THE LUCK THAT

THIS HOLY MAN WAS ALSO

CALLED BY THE NAME OF

ELIJAH, OR THIS WAS ELIJAH

THE PROPHET HIMSELF.

Reporter: ANOTHER

DISCOVERY POINTING TO ELIJAH

IS THE DISCOVER OF TWO

DIFFERENT INSCRIPTIONS,

MENTIONING THE FAMILY OF

NIMSHI.

IT WAS ELIJAH THAT WAS

TOLD TO ANOINT JAHUD, THE

SON OF NIMSHI, TO BE KING.

HE SENT OUT ONE OF HIS

DISCIPLES TO DO THE

ANOINTING.

Reporter: MANY

ARCHEOLOGISTS SHY AWAY FROM

DRAWING CONCLUSIONS ABOUT

THE BIBLE, BUT SOME SEE IT

AS A WAY OF PUTTING THE

PIECES TOGETHER.

ARCHEOLOGY IS LIKE A HUGE

PUZZLE.

WE GET INFORMATION FROM ONE

EXCAVATION, AND THEN THE

SECOND AND THE THIRD

EXCAVATION, SOMARIA, AND

TOGETHER WE BRING IT INTO A

LARGE PICTURE, THE LARGE

PUZZLE, TRYING TO DECIDE THE

MATERIAL CULTURE OF THE

ISRAELITES.

Reporter: FOR KERRY

SUMMERS, IT IS EVEN MORE.

IT IS LIKE ANY OTHER

ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE IN

ESSENCE.

EVERY SCOOP OF DIRT PROVES

THE BIBLE ONE SCOOP AT A

TIME.

THIS SIDE IS ABSOLUTELY

MAGNIFICENT.

Reporter: THE FUTURE OF

THE SITE IS UNCERTAIN

BECAUSE ITS MUD BRICKS ARE

DETERIORATING.

EXPERTS HOPE IT CAN BE

PRESERVED TO HELP FUTURE

GENERATIONS UNDERSTAND THE

BIBLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

TELLRAHUD, ISRAEL.

Pat: FASCINATING.

I'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF

STUDYING BIBLICAL ARCHEOLOGY

WHEN I WAS IN SEMINARY, AND

FROM EVERYTHING I CAN

GATHER, THERE IS NOT ONE

LEGITIMATE DISCOVERY THAT

THIS PROVES THE BIBLE.

AND EVERY ONE THAT IS A

LEGITIMATE ARCHEOLOGICAL

FIND SUPPORTS THE BIBLICAL

NARRATIVE.

AND THAT, IN A SENSE -- THE

BIBLE STANDS ON ITS OWN,

WHETHER OR NOT WE'VE GOT

ARCHEOLOGY, BUT,

NEVERTHELESS, IT IS

COMFORTING TO KNOW EVERY

TIME THEY FIND SOMETHING,

THEY SAY IT SQUARES WITH

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

Terry: FASCINATING.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY

FASCINATING.

I THINK IT WOULD BE SO MUCH

FUN TO BE PART OF THE

DISCOVERIES.

Pat: NAMAN COMES OUT

WITH ALL OF THE CHERRIES,

AND HE IS THE GENERAL IN

CHARGE OF THE SYRIAN ARMY.

AND HE HAS LEPROSY, AND HE

COMES RUNNING UP, AND THE

PROPHET SAYS GO TELL HIM TO

WASH IN THE JORDAN.

AND NAMIN IS FURIOUS.

HE SAYS HE SHOULD HAVE COME

OUT HERE AND LAY HIS SHAND

ON THE LEPER, AND HE SHOULD

HAVE DONE ALL OF THESE IN

CANTATIONS.

AND I'VE GOT BETTER RIVERS

THAN THE JORDAN IN SYRIA.

AND THE LITTLE GIRL SAYS, IF

HE TOLD YOU TO DO THIS BIG

THING, YOU WOULD HAVE DONE

IT.

AND SO HE GOES IN THE JORDAN

AND COMES OUT LIKE A BABY'S

SKIN.

WE'VE GOT SOMEBODY WHO'S

VOICE IS LIKE AN ANGEL'S.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

HEAR A LIVE PERFORMANCE FROM

HOLLY TUCKER, AND THAT'S

NEXT.

Terry: LAST SEASON

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TUNED

INTO THE HIT SHOW "THE

VOICE."

AND SAW AN EPISODE THAT WAS

UNLIKE ANY OTHER.

EARLIER THAT DAY, TORNADOES

HAD DEVASTATED THE STATE OF

OKLAHOMA.

SO WITH THE HEAVY HEART,

CONTESTANT HOLLY TUCKER TOOK

THE STAGE AND SANG AN

EMOTIONAL CLASSIC HYMN.

FOR HOLLY TUCKER, IT WAS A

RISK, BUT ONE SHE WAS

WILLING TO TAKE.

PLEASE WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB," HOLLY TUCKER.

[APPLAUSE]

Terry: AWESOME.

WONDERFUL!

HOLLY, COME ON OVER.

IT'S GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: WOW, WHAT A

VOICE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: WHAT A VOICE

FROM "THE VOICE."

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: HOW DID YOU GET

STARTED SINGING?

I GREW UP WITH IT.

IT WAS ALWAYS IN THE HOUSE.

MY PARENTS WERE SINGERS.

THEY HAD A BAND OF THEIR OWN

AND THEY RAISED ME UP TO

SING.

Terry: WAS THIS A DREAM

OF YOURS, ALL YOUR LIFE?

TO SING?

YEAH.

Terry: TO BE ABLE TO

SING PROFESSIONALLY?

YEAH.

IT HAS BEEN SOMETHING I'VE

REALLY GROWN INTO, AND I'VE

GROWN A PASSION FOR.

I FEEL IT WITH EVERY PART OF

MY SOUL.

Terry: YOU CAN HEAR

IT.

THANK YOU.

Terry: VOICES KIND OF

ARE LIKE THAT.

WE DO GROW INTO THEM, IF

YOU'RE A SINGER.

WHEN YOU FIRST AUDITIONED

FOR "THE VOICE," THIS WASN'T

YOUR FIRST AUDITION.

THEY WANTED TO SEE -- WHAT

WAS THE TERM THEY USED --

HOW YOU WOULD DEVELOP OR

GROW?

YES.

Terry: WHAT DID YOU

THINK ABOUT THAT?

THEY SAW POTENTIAL IN ME,

AND MY VOICE WAS THERE AND

MY PASSION WAS THERE, BUT I

THINK IT WASN'T THE RIGHT

TIMING, AND I THINK THEY

COULD SEE THAT.

THEY WANTED TO GIVE ME A

LITTLE MORE TIME TO MATURE

INTO THE PERSON I WAS GOING

TO BE.

Terry: HOW LONG FROM

THE TIME YOU FIRST

AUDITIONED UNTIL YOU GOT ON

TO THE SHOW.

I AUDITIONED FOR SEASON

ONE ORIGINALLY, AND THEN I

AUDITIONED FOR SEASON FOUR.

Terry: THIS REQUIRED

LEAVING YOUR COMFORT ZONE

AND GOING OUT TO

CALIFORNIA.

WHAT WAS THAT LIKE FOR YOU?

OH, MAN, I WAS SO --

Terry: WERE YOU REALLY

NERVOUS?

I WAS REALLY NERVOUS.

I WAS GOING TO BE OUT THERE

FOR THE FIRST TIME, ON MY

OWN, WITHOUT MY PARENTS.

AND IT WAS REALLY SCARY.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IT WAS

EXCITING BECAUSE I WAS

GETTING TO BE MY OWN PERSON

AND FIGURE THAT PART OF

MYSELF THAT I HADN'T KNOWN

BEFORE.

Terry: I KNEW YOU WERE

A BELIEVER FROM WATCHING THE

SHOW.

IT IS HARD TO GO INTO A

VENUE LIKE CALIFORNIA WHEN

YOU'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING

LIKE THAT, AND HOLD YOUR

OWN.

WERE YOU CHALLENGED?

I WAS A LITTLE

CHALLENGING.

I'M USED TO SOUTHERN HOS

HOSPITALITY, AND THE CHARM

OF THAT LIFESTYLE.

IT WAS GOOD IN KALES,

CALIFORNIA, BUT IT WAS JUST

DIFFERENT.

Terry: TELL US A LITTLE

ABOUT THE PROCESS.

WE WATCH THE SHOW AND IT IS

SO INTENSE.

YOUR COACH WAS BLAKE

SHELTON, AND WE SEE YOU COME

IN EACH WEEK WITH A NEW

SONG.

DOES HE PICK THAT SONG FOR

YOU?

WELL, IT'S KIND OF A

LITTLE BIT OF BOTH OF OUR

DECISIONS.

LIKE, I WOULD TALK TO HIM

ABOUT IT, AND TELL HIM WHAT

SONGS I WAS INTERESTED IN

DOING, AND HE WOULD

COLLABORATE WITH ME AND GIVE

ME IDEAS, AND THEN WE WOULD

CHOOSE ONE TOGETHER.

Terry: AT ANY POINT

ALONG THE WAY, DID YOU EVER

SAY I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD

BE DOING THIS ONE.

SOMETIMES WHEN YOU PICK A

SONG, AS YOU'RE MOVING

ALONG, IT IS NOT WHAT YOU

HOPE IT WOULD BE.

I THINK IN THE BEGINNING,

BLAKE GAVE ME A LITTLE MORE

FREE REIN TO CHOOSE WHAT I

WANT SO HE COULD FIGURE OUT

WHAT KIND OF ARTIST I WAS.

BY THE TIME HE WAS CHOOSING

THE SONGS, HE WAS CHOOSING

SONGS FOR ME THAT I WOULD

HAVE DONE ANYWAY, BECAUSE HE

WAS GETTING TO KNOW ME AND

WHO I WAS.

AND THAT'S THE MARK OF A

GREAT COACH.

Terry: TELL US A LITTLE

ABOUT THE SONG YOU JUST

SANG.

THAT WAS A DEVASTATING TIME

IN OKLAHOMA, AND IT CAME ON

UNEXPECTANTLY, AND SO MANY

PEOPLE SUFFERED LIFE AND

HOMES.

AND YOU CAME UP AND DID A

SONG THAT WASN'T THE

TRADITIONAL SONG THAT WOULD

BE DONE ON "THE VOICE."

WERE YOU CONCERNED?

I WAS A LITTLE SCARY TO

DO THAT KIND OF SONG.

BLAKE WAS THE ONE WHO

ORIGINALLY BROUGHT ME THE

IDEA.

I THOUGHT IF IT WAS BLAKE'S

CHOICE, IT HAD TO BE GOD

ORDAINED BECAUSE I WOULD

CHOOSE THAT SONG BECAUSE I

LOVE THAT KIND OF SONG.

BUT, LIKE YOU SAID, IT IS A

SECULAR SHOW.

SO IT IS DIFFICULT TO DO

STUFF LIKE THAT.

BUT I JUMPED ON IT.

AND I REALLY WANTED TO DO

IT.

I WORKED ON IT AND WORKED ON

IT.

AND IT IS INTERESTING HOW IT

HAPPENED.

Terry: WHAT DID YOU

FEEL FROM THE AUDIENCE?

BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE READY TO

HEAR THE MESSAGE THAT GOD IS

GREAT IN THE MIDST OF LOSS.

THEY WERE SO RECEPTIVE.

I THINK THAT EVERYBODY WAS

JUST SO STUNNED AT THAT

POINT.

IT WAS KIND OF LIKE A PRAYER

OPENING UP THE SHOW.

Terry: IT WAS A

PRAYER.

AND THAT'S WHAT I WANTED

TO TREAT IT AS, AS WORSHIP.

Terry: WHAT DO YOU WANT

TO DO NOW?

OBVIOUSLY, I WANT TO

CONTINUE MUSIC.

I WANT TO BE A COUNTRY MUSIC

ARTIST.

BUT I WANT TO BE ONE OF THE

POSITIVE ARTISTS OUT THERE

THAT HAS ALWAYS GOT

SOMETHING GOOD TO SAY, AND

SPREAD THE GOOD MESSAGE.

I DON'T THINK THAT YOU HAVE

TO BE NECESSARILY TRASHY OR

SOMETHING TO BE IN THIS

INDUSTRY.

Terry: YOU DON'T.

THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE

DOING WELL WHO ARE NOT.

GOD HAS GIVEN YOU A GREAT

VOICE, AND WE THANK YOU FOR

GLORIFYING HIM WITH IT.

IT WAS BEAUTIFULLY,

BEAUTIFULLY DONE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW

MORE OR SEE MORE ABOUT HOLLY

TUCKER, YOU CAN DOWNLOAD HER

SONGS ON iTUNES OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

Pat: SWEET GIRL, SO

GLAD SHE IS HERE WITH US.

HOLLY TUCKER.

STILL AHEAD, QUESTIONS FROM

THE IN BOX.

JUDY SAYS, "MY MARRIED

BROTHER RECENTLY CONNECTED

WITH A WOMAN ON Facebook

THAT HE KNEW 40 YEARS AGO.

NOW HE HAS LEFT HIS WIFE,

MOVED IN WITH HER, WHILE HE

IS STILL LEGALLY MARRIED.

I CAN'T CONDONE HIS

BEHAVIOR.

AM I BEING JUDGEMENTAL?"

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" AND MORE

LATER ON THE SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

TEMPORARILY BLOCKED A NORTH

DAKOTA LAW THAT BANS

ABORTION WHEN A FETAL HEART

BEAT IS DETECTED.

IT WOULD OUTLAW ABORTION SIX

WEEKS INTO PREGNANCY.

IT PREVENTS THE LAW FROM

GOING INTO EFFECT

AUGUST 1st.

THE JUDGE CALLED THE LAW

CLEARLY INVALID AND

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

ACTOR KIRK CAMERON SAYS HIS

LATEST MOVIE, " UNSTOPPABLE"

CAN'T BE STOPPED.

HE TOLD HIS FANS Facebook

AND YouTube HAD BLOCKED

HIS MOVIE TRAILER, CALLING

IT ABUSIVE, UNSAFE.

MORE THAN 250,000 PEOPLE

REPOSTED CAMERON'S COMMENTS,

PROMPTING Facebook AND

YouTube TO PUT THE

TRAILER BACK UP.

THE MOVIE EXPLORES WHY GOD

ALLOWS BAD THINGS TO HAPPEN

TO GOOD PEOPLE.

YOU CAN FIND A LINK TO THE

TRAILER AND MORE DETAILS

ABOUT THE MOVIE ON OUR

WEBSITE, cbnnews.com, AND

YOU CAN ALSO FIND THE LATEST

HEADLINES FROM CBN NEWS

THERE AS WELL.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT IS TIME

TO ANSWER SOME E-MAIL

QUESTIONS AS WE "BRING IT

ON" TODAY.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM JUDY,

WHO SAYS, "I AM A CHRISTIAN,

AND MY BROTHER SAYS HE IS A

CHRISTIAN.

RECENTLY, HE REPLIED TO A

WOMAN ON Facebook HE KNEW

40 YEARS AGO.

HE ANNOUNCED TO HIS WIFE HE

WAS LEAVING HER, AND MOVED

IN WITH THIS WOMAN, EVEN

THOUGH HE IS STILL MARRIED.

HE AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS

EXPECT ME TO FORGIVE HIM AND

RESPECT THE OTHER WOMAN.

I LOVE MY SISTER-IN-LAW AND

AM HAR HEARTBROKEN FOR

HIM.

I HAVE PRAYED ABOUT THIS

EVERY DAY, BUT I CANNOT

CONDONE HIS BEHAVIOR.

AM I BEING JUDGEMENTAL?"

Pat: JUDY, THE BIBLE IS

VERY EXPLICIT ABOUT IT.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS IF I

DON'T ASSOCIATE WITH THIEVES

AND FORNICATORS, I WOULD

HAVE TO LEAVE THE WORLD.

HOWEVER, IF SOMEONE IS

CALLED A BROTHER, AND HE IS

A FORNICATOR OR HE IS A

SLANDERER, YOU'RE NOT EVEN

SUPPOSED TO EAT WITH HIM.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

AND THAT IS NOT

JUDGEMENTAL.

AS ONE FRIEND OF MINE SAYS,

I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO JUDGE,

BUT I AM A FRUIT INSPECTOR.

AND BY THEIR FRUIT, YOU'LL

KNOW.

NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

CONDONE THAT STUFF.

YOUR BROTHER, MAYBE HE IS

GOING THROUGH A MID-LIFE

CRISIS -- YOU CAN DO ALL

KINDS OF EVALUATION OF WHAT

HAS HAPPENED TO HIM, BUT

THAT ISN'T CHRISTIAN.

Terry: CATHY SAYS,

"DOES PAT BELIEVE THAT GOD

DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER TO

HEAL SOMEONE FROM

PORNOGRAPHY.

MY GOD IS ALL POWERFUL AND

ABLE TO CLEAN THEM FROM ALL

INEQUITY.

WHAT ABOUT THAT PERSON WHO

IS WATCHING YOUR PROGRAM AND

WHO IS ADDICTED TO

PORNOGRAPHY, AND NOW HE

FEELS THERE IS NO HOPE?"

Pat:

Terry: I THINK YOU

MISUNDERSTOOD --

Pat: YES, I THINK YOU

MISUNDERSTOOD.

I THINK I SAID THAT

PORNOGRAPHY IS ONE OF THE

HARDEST ADDICTIONS.

YES, YOU CAN GET CURED FROM

EVERYTHING.

I SAY IT AND I SAY IT AND I

SAY IT AGAIN, 21 DAYS IS

WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE

SOMETHING A HABIT IN YOUR

LIFE.

THAT'S THREE WEEKS.

TODAY I WON'T WATCH PORN.

TODAY I WON'T WATCH PORN.

SECOND DAY, THIRD DAY, TODAY

I WON'T WATCH PORN.

DO IT FOR 21 DAYS, AND YOU

WILL FIND THAT YOU HAVE MADE

A NEW HABIT.

BUT YOU SHOULD REPLACE THE

PORN WITH SOMETHING ELSE.

BUT, OF COURSE GOD CAN HEAL

PEOPLE OF THAT, BUT THEY'VE

GOT TO WANT TO DO

SOMETHING.

Terry: YOU'VE ALWAYS

BEEN PRETTY CLEAR ABOUT

THAT.

AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT PORN

THAT WE TALK ABOUT, THERE IS

SHAME INVOLVED IN THAT.

AND IF YOU BRING IT INTO THE

LIGHT -- AND THERE ARE

SUPPORT GROUPS, AND GET IN

WITH A GROUP LIKE THAT,

WHERE OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE

TROUBLED WITH THE SAME

ADDICTION THAT YOU HAVE ARE

THERE TO SUPPORT YOU.

I'VE NEVER HEARD YOU SAY

THAT --

Pat: IT WAS JUST A

MISUNDERSTANDING.

BUT I WANTED TO CLARIFY, AND

THANKS FOR THAT QUESTION.

Terry: DAVID SAYS, "I

WAS BORN AND RAISED IN THE

BIBLE BELT.

WHY ARE SO MANY CHRISTIANS

IGNORANT ABOUT GOD'S WORD.

WHY DO SO MANY NOT FOLLOW

GOD'S WORD.

WHY ARE MANY NOT TAUGHT WHAT

WILL HAPPEN IF YOU DIE A

NON-CHRISTIAN?

I'M DISTURBED BY THIS."

Pat: I DON'T WANT TO

SOUND JUDGEMENTAL, BUT THERE

ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO START

PREACHING WHEN THEY'RE 12

YEARS OLD.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY BIBLE

TRAINING, ANY FORMAL

TRAINING.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND A

WHOLE LOT OF THINGS.

AND THEY GET UP IN THE

PULPIT, AND THEY START

PONTIFICATING, AND PEOPLE

THINK, ISN'T HE WONDERFUL.

I REMEMBER ONE GUY WHO WAS A

TRAVELLING EVANGELIST, WHO

WORKED FOR US FOR A TIME,

VERY TALENTED, BUT WHEN I

STARTED TALKING TO HIM ABOUT

SOME THINGS IN THE BIBLE, HE

WAS TOTALLY IGNORANT.

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: HE WAS OUT

PREACHING WEEK AFTER WEEK

AFTER WEEK, BUT HE JUST

DIDN'T KNOW THESE THINGS.

THAT BUSINESS -- THEY HAD A

BIG DEAL -- PEOPLE MADE A

LIVING PREACHING ABOUT THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HOLY

GHOST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT,

AND THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE,

AND IT WAS THAT KIND OF

THING.

YOU SAY WHY DON'T PEOPLE GET

TAUGHT?

MAN SAYS I'M GOING TO TELL

YOU HOW TO GET RICH AND

POWERFUL, RATHER THAN

TELLING YOU YOU'RE GOING TO

HELL, THAT DOESN'T MAKE

PEOPLE HAPPY.

PAUL SAYS IN THE LAST DAYS,

THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO

COME WHO WILL TRY TO TICKLE

YOUR EARS.

JESUS PREACHED HIS CROWD

AWAY.

PETER SAID, WHERE CAN WE

GO?

YOU'VE GOT THE WORD OF

ETERNAL LIFE AND YOU'RE

GOING TO LEAVE ME, TOO.

HE GAVE IT TO THEM THE WAY

IT WAS.

BUT THERE ARE MANY REASONS,

BUT IT IS SAD WHEN I GET

SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT I

RECEIVE ON THIS PROGRAM, I

AM APPALLED AT THE LACK OF

BIBLICAL UNDERSTANDING.

BUT IF WE CAN HELP PEOPLE

HAVE BIBLICAL UNDERSTANDING

-- I BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE

AND I HAVE STUDIED IT AND

HAVE TAUGHT IT AND HAVE BEEN

TRAINED IN IT.

AND I BELIEVE WE NEED TO

STICK WITH THE BOOK.

Terry: KIM SAYS, "I

HAVE A FRIEND WHO IS VERY

OPINIONATED, AND HE SAID THE

ONLY VERSE YOU HAVE TO

BELIEVE IN IS JOHN 3: 16.

I THINK HE IS WRONG.

IF IT WERE TRUE, WHY WOULD

THE ENTIRE BIBLE HAVE BEEN

WRITTEN?"

Pat: YOU'RE RIGHT ON

THE MONEY.

JESUS SAID, UNTIL EVERYTHING

IS FULFILLED, NOT ONE JOT --

A JOT IS THAT LETTER

UNHEBREW, AND YOU PUT A DOT

IN -- NOT ONE JOT OR TITTLE

UNTIL THE LAW IS FULFILLED.

PAUL WRITING THE TENANT SAYS

IT IS PASAGRAPHI, AND ALL

WRITING BY GOD IS HELPFUL

FOR INSTRUCTION.

THAT THE MAN OF GOD MIGHT BE

COMPLETE AND SO FORTH.

JOHN 3: 16 IS WONDERFUL, FOR

GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD HE

GAVE HIS OWN SON, BUT THAT'S

NOT THE WHOLE STORY.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: ANDREA SAYS,

"HOW WILL I KNOW THAT GOD IS

REALLY REAL?"

Pat: YOU KNOW THAT

PSAL PSALM, MY GOD IS

REAL -- AMOS USED SO SAY,

GOD IS REAL FOR I CAN FEEL

HIM IN MY HEART.

YOU NEED TO TRY THE LORD,

LISTEN TO THE LORD, WALK

WITH THE LORD -- HOW DO YOU

KNOW?

YOU'VE GOT TO SPEND TIME

WITH HIM.

HOW DO YOU KNOW ANYBODY IS

REAL?

YOU HAVE GOT TO SPEND TIME

WITH THEM.

GOD IS REAL BECAUSE I CAN

FEEL HIM HERE IN MAY HEART.

AND HE IS REAL.

AND HE'LL BECOME MORE REAL

TO YOU THE MORE YOU LISTEN

TO HIM, THE MORE YOU OBEY

HIS COMMANDMENTS, THE MORE

YOU WALK WITH HIM.

HE WILL WALK WITH YOU AND

SPEAK WITH YOU, AND YOU'LL

HEAR A VOICE IN YOUR EAR,

THE BIBLE SAYS, SAYING THIS

IS THE WAY, WALK IN IT.

WHEW!

Terry: WONDERFUL.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR TODAY.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE TO

ASK THEIR QUESTIONS AND FIND

OUT WHAT THE WORD SAYS.

Pat: IT IS MY DELIGHT

TO DO IT.

I ENJOY TEACHING THE BIBLE

AND SHARING THINGS.

FOR A FARMER, EITHER DROUGHT

OR HAIL COULD MEAN CROP

FAILURE.

JENNIFER POOR'S FARM

EXPERIENCED BOTH OF THEM IN

THE SAME SUMMER, BUT

JENNIFER STILL MANAGED TO

TURN A PROFIT, AND HERE IS

HOW SHE DID IT.

WHEN JENNIFER INHERITED

THE FAMILY FARM, IT CAME

WITH AN 80-YEAR HISTORY OF

ABUNDANCE.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

CROP FAILURE.

EITHER WHEN IT WAS TOO WET

OR A DROUGHT.

Terry: BUT DURING AN

ESPECIALLY SEVERE DROUGHT IN

2012, FARM MANAGER DAVE

CALLED WITH BAD NEWS.

UNLESS WE GOT A RAIN

RIGHT BEFORE THE

POLLENATION, WE WERE GOING

TO HAVE SOME PRETTY

DEVASTATING RESULTS.

I WAS SHOCKED.

80 YEARS, THERE HAS NEVER,

EVER BEEN A CROP FAILURE.

Terry: SO JENNIFER

PRAYED, AND THE CLOUDS

OPENED.

IT WAS HAILING, AND

THAT'S A FARMER'S WORST

NIGHTMARE.

IF IT IS DROUGHT AND HAIL,

OBVIOUSLY, THERE IS NOT

GOING TO BE A PROFIT AFTER

THE HAIL.

I'D BE LUCKY TO BREAK EVEN.

Terry: SHE PRAYED

AGAIN.

SAYING, O LORD, PLEASE

HELP ME, HELP MY LAND.

ANY PROFITS YOU GIVE, I WILL

GIVE IT ALL TO "THE 700

CLUB."

AND I DID SPELL IT OUT

SPECIFICALLY, "THE 700

CLUB."

Terry: THE FARM LAND

WAS A FEW HOURS FROM HOME.

SO FOR MONTHS, JENNIFER HAD

NO IDEA HOW THE CROP WAS

DOING.

WHEN DAVE FINALLY CALLED,

SHE BRACED HERSELF FOR THE

WORST.

YOU HAD A SUCCESSFUL

CROP.

AND I'M, LIKE, SAY THAT

AGAIN.

I DON'T BELIEVE THIS.

AT THAT POINT, I KNEW I WAS

GOING TO BE ABLE TO WRITE A

BIG CHECK TO CBN.

Terry: IT TURNED OUT

THE HAILSTORM STOPPED ABOUT

FIVE MILES SHORT OF

JENNIFER'S FARM.

AND EVEN THOUGH IT BARELY

SPRINKLED THAT SPRING AND

SUMMER, THEY HARVESTED A

BUMPER CROP OF CORN.

IT IS REMARKABLE.

IT IS A MIRACLE.

WHEN DAVE SENT THE CHECK

IN DECEMBER, IT'S OVER

$20,000.

Terry: JUST DAYS BEFORE

JENNIFER WROTE THE CHECK, A

PIECE OF MEDICAL EQUIPMENT

BROKE DOWN AT A CBN CLINIC

IN UKRAINE.

JENNIFER'S DONATION MORE

THAN COVERED THE COST OF

REPLACING IT WITH A BETTER

PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

SO I WROTE JENNIFER A LETTER

OF THANKS.

DEAR JENNIFER, YOU HAVE

THRILLED THE HEARTS OF OUR

TEAM AT THE KIEV MEDICAL

CLINIC.

YOUR GIFT --

WILL TOUCH THE LIVES OF

THOUSANDS OF POOR CHILDREN

AND FAMILIES WHO ARE TREATED

THERE FREE OF CHARGE.

A MAJOR NEED WAS FILLED IN

UKRAINE FROM A CROP FAILURE

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Terry: TODAY SHE IS

PASSING ON STORIES ABOUT THE

FAMILY FARM TO HER

GRANDCHILDREN.

NOW I CAN SAY IT AND MEAN

IT, FOR 80 YEARS THE CROP

HAS NEVER FAILED.

THAT SAYS THAT GOD IS GOOD

IN THE GOOD WEATHER AND THE

BAD WEATHER.

THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR

WE'RE TO GIVE GOD OUR FIRST

FRUITS.

EVEN WHEN MONEY IS TIGHT,

THE FIRST CHECK IS TO THE

KINGDOM.

SMALL OR BIG, GOD CAN

MULTIPLY IT.

HE IS GOD, OUR PROVIDER.

I AM EAGER TO WRITE THE

FIRST CHECK TO HIM TO SAY

THANK YOU.

Pat: WHAT A WONDERFUL

PERSON.

GOD IS THE GOD THAT CONTROLS

THE WEATHER AND HE MAKES THE

SUN SHINE AND THE RAIN FALL,

AND HE SENDS TERRY ON TRIPS

TO THE UKRAINE.

Terry: SHE IS AN

AWESOME LADY.

WE HAVE A JOINT WORD, MORE,

WE JUST WANT MORE.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND WENT

WITH US TO UKRAINE, AND SHE

IS POURING OUT CONCRETE, AND

SHE IS A THE MEDICAL

CENTER.

WE WERE THRILLED THEY CAME.

Pat: THE CHECK SHE

WROTE BOUGHT WHAT?

Terry: IT WAS A PIECE

OF EQUIPMENT -- IT WAS SORT

OF AN X-RAY MACHINE THAT

NEEDED TO BE USED -- THERE

ARE CERTAIN THINGS THAT CAN

ONLY BE DIAGNOSED WITH THE

RIGHT EQUIPMENT.

YOU KNOW ALL MEDICAL

EQUIPMENT IS INCREDIBLY

COSTLY.

SO WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THAT

GOES ON THE BLINK, WE REALLY

ARE AT A STANDSTILL.

AND SHE AND PHIL SWEPT IN

AND MADE A DIFFERENCE.

Pat: A CROP FAILURE

THAT WAS ALMOST --

Terry: SHE SAID THAT

HAIL WENT ALL AROUND THEIR

LAND.

AND RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE,

THEIR LAND STAYED AND

PRODUCED THE WHOLE CROP.

UNBELIEVABLE.

Pat: GOD IS GOOD.

AND, FOLKS, YOU WANT TO SEE

THE BLESSING OF GOD.

GOD SAYS REAL SIMPLE, GIVE

AND IT WILL BE GIVEN UNTO

YOU.

GOD ALSO SAYS IN MALACHI, I

WILL REBUKE THE DESTROYER

FOR YOUR SAKE.

THE DESTROYER CAME AFTER HER

CROP, AND GOD GAVE HER MORE

AND REBUKED THE DESTROYER.

WHO NEEDS A DESTROYER?

WE WANT THEM REBUKED.

THE NUMBER IS ON OUR

SCREEN.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU AS

A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

PEOPLE SEEM TO LIKE THIS.

WE GET GOOD REPORTS ON

GORDON'S SPEAKING ON "THE

LORD'S PRAYER," AND WE'LL

SEND THIS TO YOU AS OUR GIFT

TO APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE

DOING.

SO, TERRY IS NEXT.

Terry: COMING UP LATER,

A FRENCH TEACHER WHO HAD

TROUBLE TALKING.

HAVING THAT PAIN NOT ONLY

JUST EATING OR SWALLOWING,

BUT SPEAKING, IT WAS A

CONSTANT, DAILY PAIN, MINUTE

BY MINUTE.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

TEACHER WAS HEALED

MIRACULOUSLY.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS, SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Pat: DOES GOD HEAL

TODAY?

DOES GOD TOUCH PEOPLE?

WILL HE TOUCH YOU?

LISTEN TO THIS STORY.

HER NAME WAS SHAUNA HAGGINS,

AND SHAUNA ENDURED MONTHS OF

PAIN, AND HER DOCTOR

COULDN'T FIND AN EXPLANATION

ABOUT WHAT WAS WRONG WITH

HER.

SO SHAUNA TURNED ON THE

TELEVISION, AND GOD GAVE HER

A SUPER NATURAL ANSWER FOR

THE PROBLEM THAT HAD BEEN

PLAGUING HER.

Reporter: SHAUNA

HAGGINS DEVELOPED A SHARP

PAIN IN HER GROIN AREA.

ALL I DO ALL DAY LONG IS

TALK.

I HAVE 168 STUDENTS.

AND HAVING THAT PAIN, NOT

ONLY JUST EATING OR

SWALLOWING, BUT SPEAKING, IT

WAS A CONSTANT, DAILY PAIN,

MINUTE BY MINUTE.

Reporter: SHE WENT TO

HER DOCTOR, BUT AFTER

EXTENSIVE TESTING, HE

COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING

WRONG.

BELIEVING THERE WAS NO

ANSWER JUST HEIGHTENED MY

FEARS.

AND I REALLY NEEDED THE LORD

TO GIVE ME PEACE.

I DIDN'T WANT TO WORRY.

I DEPUTY WANT TO BE ANXIOUS

FOR ANYTHING.

I WANTED TO GIVE IT ALL TO

HIM.

BUT THERE WAS A PART OF ME

THAT WAS STILL WORRIED.

Reporter: SHAUNA HAD A

FOLLOW-UP DOCTOR'S VISIT

SCHEDULED FOR A FEW DAYS

LATER.

BUT SHE TURNED ON THE "THE

700 CLUB."

SEEING THEIR TESTIMONIES

ALL OF THE TIME, I KNEW IF I

TURNED ON THAT TV, I COULD

EXPECT A BLESSING.

I JUST ASKED THE LORD.

I SAID, LORD, I KNOW YOU CAN

HEAL ME, I KNOW YOU WILL

HEAL ME.

BUT SOMETIMES IN MY

HUMANITY, I CAN WORRY.

SO IF YOU JUST GIVE ME A

WORD THROUGH ONE OF THEM TO

LET ME KNOW.

AND BEFORE I COULD EVEN GET

THE PRAYER OUT OF MY MOUTH,

TERRY WAS POINTING TO THE

AREA.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A CONDITION, AND I

DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT

YOUR THROAT CLOSES UP.

YOU HAVE A HARD TIME EATING,

AND YOU EVEN HAVE A HARD

TIME SWALLOWING.

JUST TOUCH YOUR THROAT AND

RECEIVE HEALING FROM THE

LORD AS HE RELEASES THAT FOR

YOU.

WHEN I RECEIVED THE WORD,

I WAS ESTATIC.

I JUST BEGAN TO WORSHIP.

I JUST BEGAN TO RAISE MY

HANDS AND THANK GOD.

I KNEW IT WAS FOR ME.

I CLAIMED THAT WORD FOR

MYSELF.

Reporter: TWO DAYS

LATER, SHAUNA KNEW SOMETHING

WAS DIFFERENT.

I REALIZED THAT I HAD

BEEN HEALED.

I WAS IN THE KITCHEN, AND I

WAS ABOUT TO GET SOMETHING

TO EAT, AND I REALIZED AT

THAT MOMENT I DIDN'T HAVE

ANY PAIN.

I WAS EXTREMELY EXCITED.

I JUST FELT LOVED.

I FELT GOD LOVED ME ENOUGH

TO GIVE ME THAT WORD SO I

WOULD NOT WORRY.

Reporter: TODAY SHAUNA

IS COMPLETELY PAIN-FREE AND

HER SYMPTOMS HAVE NOT

RETURNED.

GOD CAN HEAL AND GOD CAN

DELIVER, AND GOD CAN SET

FREE.

AND YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE

BECAUSE FAITH IS THE

SUBSTANCE OF THE THINGS

HOPED FOR, AND THAT IS OUR

EVIDENCE OF THE THINGS WE

DON'T SEE.

IF GOD SAID IT, HE IS GOING

TO DO IT.

Pat: MAN, SHE HAS GOT

IT RIGHT.

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE -- WE

WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

Terry: ROSE LIVES IN

NEW YORK.

AND FOR TWO YEARS ROSE

SUFFERED FROM AN ACHE IN HER

NECK.

SHE INJURED IT WHILE SHE WAS

LIFTING SOME HEAVY OBJECTS.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND HE HEARD

YOU, PAT, GIVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, THERE IS A STRAIN

IN YOUR NECK.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK,

GOD JUST HEALED YOU.

ROSE TOUCHED HER NECK, AND

ALL OF THE PAIN WENT AWAY.

NO PROBLEMS SINCE THEN.

AFTER TWO YEARS.

Pat: WE WANT TO PRAY,

AND WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF

TIME.

LISTEN, FOLKS, WHY NOT YOU?

YOU'RE SUFFERING FROM

SOMETHING FOR A WHILE, AND

YOU SAY, THAT'S JUST MY

CONDITION.

NO, IT'S NOT.

IT IS SOMETHING GOD WILL

TAKE AWAY FROM YOU IF YOU

LET HIM.

GOD IS FAITHFUL, AND HE'LL

TAKE YOU THROUGH THESE

THINGS.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND BELIEVE GOD

TOGETHER.

NOW, FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

DEAR SISTER, AND WE PRAY

TOGETHER IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND WE BELIEVE GOD FOR

ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

WE BELIEVE YOU, LORD, FOR

THE ANOINTING.

THERE IS SOMEBODY WHO HAS AN

INGINAL HERNIA, AND YOU'LL

FEEL PRESSURE IN THAT AREA.

GOD HAS JUST RESTORED THAT

NECESSARY SUPPORT AND YOU

ARE HEALED IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TERRY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE WHO HAS HAD A BAD FALL,

AN UNEXPECTED FALL.

IT HAS THROWN YOUR BODY OUT

OF ALIGNMENT.

YOU'RE IN A PRONE POSITION

RIGHT NOW, UNABLE TO MOVE.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU.

JUST FEEL IT FROM THE TOP OF

YOUR HEAD TO THE BOTTOM OF

YOUR TOES.

RISE UP.

HE HAS HEALED YOU.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

FUNGUS IN YOUR THROAT OR IN

YOUR MOUTH.

A FUNGUS.

AND APPARENTLY THE

ANTIBIOTICS HAVEN'T WORKED.

BUT RIGHT NOW THEY'LL

BE, LIKE, FIRE IN YOUR

MOUTH.

THAT IS COMPLETELY HEALED,

IN JESUS' NAME.

AND THERE IS A ANOTHER

PERSON WHO HAS GOT A NECK

STRAIN.

YOU CAN PROBABLY FEEL

SOMETHING.

PUT YOUR MAND O HAND ON IT

AND IT IS TOUCHED IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

Terry: AND THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH A CHRONIC HIP

DISORDER.

AND GOD IS SETTING THAT HIP

BACK IN PLACE AND THAT DEEP,

DEEP ACHE IS GOING TO GO

AWAY.

Pat: THERE IS TROUBLE.

YOU HAVE TROUBLE IN YOUR

MIND.

YOU DON'T HAVE PEACE.

YOU DON'T HAVE PEACE.

AND GOD SAYS GREAT PEACE

HAVE THEY WHO LOVE THY LAW.

THE PEACE OF GOD IS GOING TO

COME UPON YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOU'LL FEEL PEACE, LIKE A

RIVER, COMING INTO YOUR

LIFE.

THE TROUBLE YOU HAVE WORRIED

SO MUCH ABOUT IS GOING TO

DISAPPEAR.

YOU'LL FIND A MIRACULOUS

ANSWER IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US.

APPARENTLY THAT'S ALL OF THE

TIME WE HAVE FOR TODAY'S

PROGRAM.

TOMORROW WE HAVE A SIX-TIME

PRO BOWL PLACE KICKER.

DAVID AIKENS.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT HIS UPS

AND DOWNS AND HIS CAREER.

TODAY WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

WORD FROM PSALM 30: "O LORD

MY GOD, I CRIED OUT TO YOU

AND YOU HEALED ME."

REMEMBER, TELEPHONES ARE

AVAILABLE ALL DAY LONG.

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE IF

YOU NEED HELP.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
