Terry: SOME SAY THEY'RE

MYTHS WHILE OTHERS

DISAGREE.

AS I SAW CODY'S HANDS, I

SAW A SET OF WHITE HAND

AROUND HIS.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT IS JUST A BURST

OF WHITE LIGHT.

Terry: WHY ANGELS ARE

FOR REAL, ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," WE USE

TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS

THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Terry: HI, EVERYBODY,

WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM.

THANKS FOR SPENDING YOUR

MORNING WITH US.

AND TO TELL YOU WHAT IS

COMING UP THIS MORNING, I'D

LIKE TO WELCOME BACK CBN

REPORTER SCOTT ROSS.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

Terry: WHAT?

YOU'RE GETTING TO BE A

HABIT WITH ME.

Terry: YOU START

DANCING, AND I'M OUT OF

HERE.

LET ME ASK YOU QUICKLY,

HAVE YOU EVER HAD AN

ENCOUNTER WITH AN ANGEL THAT

YOU KNOW OF?

Terry: I HAVE NOT,

PERSONALLY, BUT I KNOW

PEOPLE WHO HAVE.

I HAVE.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK

ABOUT SOME OF THAT TODAY,

ACTUALLY.

ON MARCH 25th, 2009, ON

HIGHWAY 6, NEAR WACO, TEXAS,

TWO CARS CRASHED INTO EACH

OTHER HEAD-ON.

AND EYE WITNESSES AT THE

SCENE SAW A FIERY CRASH AND

A DIVINE RESCUE AT THE HANDS

OF ANGELS.

9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR

EMERGENCY?

WE HAVE A VEHICLE THAT IS

UP SIDE DOWN AND ON FIRE.

WE NEED HELP NOW.

Reporter: FOUR LIVES

INTERSECTED ON HIGHWAY 6 IN

CRAWFORD, TEXAS, THAT DAY.

SHERRY AND CODY, LISA, AND

ANTHONY ALL MET IN THE MIDST

OF TRAGEDY.

BUT ALL SAY THEY HAD A SUPER

NATURAL ENCOUNTER ON THAT

RAIN-SLICKED ROAD THAT

CHANGED THEIR LIVES

FOREVER.

LISA'S S.U.V. SLID INTO THE

PATH OF ANTHONY'S ONCOMING

CAR.

IT CRUSHED ANTHONY'S CAR.

BOTH DRIVERS WERE TRAPPED.

MY FEET WERE ON FIRE.

THE CAR WAS FILLING UP WITH

SMOKE.

THERE WAS FIRE COMING IN

THROUGH MY LEFT DOOR.

AND IT HAD BURNED MY ARM.

AND MY LEG.

I DIDN'T FEEL NO PAIN, BUT

THE STEERING WHEEL WAS STUCK

IN MY CHEST.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

Reporter: ANTHONY

BLACKED OUT A SECOND TIME.

LISA BEGAN TO PRAY.

I JUST REMEMBER SAYING,

GOD, HELP ME.

Reporter: SHERRY AND

CODY SAW THE WRECKED

VEHICLES AND RACED TO HELP.

SHERRY CALLED 9-1-1, AND

THEN SHE CRIED OUT TO GOD

FOR A MIRACLE.

I COULD JUST FEEL THE

GIFT OF FAITH STIRRING

INSIDE OF MY CHEST, THAT

NOBODY IS GOING TO DIE HERE

TODAY.

NOBODY.

I'M NOT GOING TO WATCH

ANYBODY DIE.

GOD IS GOING TO SHOW UP.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

RAN OVER TO LISA'S BURNING

S.U.V.

CODY CLIMBED INSIDE TO TRY

TO PULL LISA FROM THE

GROWING FLAMES.

GOD GAVE ME THE COURAGE

TO GO IN THERE.

I TOLD HIM RIGHT THERE I

DIDN'T WANT TO DIE, I DIDN'T

WANT TO BURN UP.

I WAS UP SIDE DOWN, AND

THE SEAT BELT, I KEPT TRYING

TO RELEASE IT, AND IT

WOULDN'T RELEASE.

I HANDED HER THE KNIFE,

AND SHE CUT THE SEAT BELT,

AND SHE FELL TO THE ROOF.

THE ROOF HAD BEEN CRUSHED.

AND THERE WAS NOT MUCH

ROOM.

MAYBE LESS THAN EIGHT INCHES

FOR HER TO GET THROUGH.

Reporter: IN A SPLIT

SECOND, THE IMPOSSIBLE

SITUATION TURNED INTO A

DIVINE RESCUE.

WHEN I REACHED OUT, AND

WE GRABBED EACH OTHER'S

HANDS, THERE WAS ANOTHER SET

OF HANDS THAT GRABBED OUR

HANDS.

AS I SAW CODY'S HANDS, I

SAW A SET OF JUST WHITE

HANDS AROUND HIS.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT WAS JUST A BURST

OF WHITE LIGHT.

Reporter: SHERRY, WHO

HAD BEEN STANDING NEXT TO

THE S.U.V. WITNESSED THE

WHOLE THING.

I SAW THESE HANDS REACH

PAST ME, WHERE THERE WAS NO

ROOM, AND THEY GRABBED A

HOLD OF CODY'S HANDS AND

LISA'S HANDS, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN IT WAS, BOOP, CODY

AND LISA WERE ON THE GRASS

NEXT TO ME.

Reporter: BUT THE WORST

WAS FAR FROM OVER.

A FEW FEET AWAY, ANTHONY LAY

UNCONSCIOUS WITH NO WAY TO

ESCAPE THE FIRE CONSUMING

HIS CAR.

THERE WAS THIS HUGE

EXPLOSION, AND THE FLAMES

JUST COMPLETELY ROLLED OVER

THE CAR AND OVER ANTHONY,

JUST CONSUMED IT IN THE

BLACK, ROLLING FLAMES.

AND I JUST SCREAMED, I SAID,

GOD, SEND YOUR ANGELS NOW.

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, ANOTHER EYE WITNESS

SAW A SECOND MIRACLE

UNFOLD.

I WAS CRYING OUT, GOD,

YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

HE SEEMED TO JUST EMERGE

THROUGH THE DOOR, AND HE

JUST KIND OF FLOATED OUT ON

THE GROUND.

I BELIEVE GOD SENT SUPER

NATURAL ANGELS TO HELP HIM

GET OUT OF THAT VEHICLE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

ANTHONY LOST CONSCIOUSNESS

DURING THE ACCIDENT, HE SAYS

THERE IS NO DOUBT WHO

RESCUED HIM FROM THE FIERY

CRASH.

IT WAS DEFINITELY GOD.

I FEEL LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO

ME IS A MIRACLE.

I CAN ONLY SAY THAT THE

LORD SENT AN ANGEL AND

REMOVED LISA FROM THE CAR,

BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT GOING TO

COME OUT OF THAT CAR.

AND HE ALSO SENT AN ANGEL

AND PULLED INGENUE OUT

ANTHONY OUT OF THAT CAR.

Reporter: LYSS LISA

AND ANTHONY WERE SENT TO THE

HOSPITAL.

I WENT THROUGH EIGHT

MONTHS OF REHAB, AND I'M

ABLE TO WALK.

RECOVERY HAS BEEN GREAT.

MY BURNS HAVE HEALED WITH NO

PROBLEMS.

NO SKIN GRAFTS.

THAT WAS ANOTHER MIRACLE

THAT HAPPENED.

IT TOOK ME, I THINK, OVER

A YEAR THAT I WAS GOING

BETWEEN A WALKER AND

CRUTCHES, AND THEN FROM

CRUTCHES TO A CANE.

I FEEL GOOD TO BE WALKING

WITH A CANE, BUT I STILL

WANT TO WALK WITHOUT ONE.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, THE MIRACLE ON

HIGHWAY 6 REMAINS ETCHED IN

THEIR MINDS.

A DAY THAT DESPERATE PRAYERS

WERE ANSWERED, PRECIOUS

LIVES WERE SAVED, AND GOD

ORCHESTRATED AN HEROIC

RESCUE.

GOD ANSWERS OUR FERVENT,

HEART-FELT PRAYERS.

GOD ANSWERS THOSE, AND HE

DELIVERS US.

PEOPLE DENY SO MANY

ASPECTS OF THE SUPER

NATURAL.

AND WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT

SOME OF THAT.

JOINING US RIDER NOW IS

AUTHOR AND THERAPIST JUDITH

McNUT.

FOR PURPOSES OFçó FULL

DISCLOSURE, I KNOW YOU

PERSONALLY.

YES, YOU DO.

THIS BOOK IS GREAT.

I READ IT FROM COVER TO

COVER.

WE JUST SAW THAT STORY.

YES.

IS THAT ACCURATE?

IT IS VERY ACCURATE.

I HAVE STORIES LIKE THAT

FROM FRIENDS, AND ALSO THAT

HAVE BEEN SENT TO ME.

ANGELS INTERVENING ALL OF

THE TIME, EVERYWHERE.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD YOUR

OWN PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH

AN ANGEL?

OH, MANY, MANY.

THROUGHOUT MY LIFE.

THAT'S WHY I WROTE THE

BOOK.

THE FIRST TIME IT

HAPPENED TO YOU?

I FELT LIKE AS A CHILD I

WAS RESCUED SEVERAL TIMES BY

ANGELS, BUT I NEVER REALLY

SAW THEM.

SINCE THEIR PRESENCE.

BUT THE FIRST CHAPTER IN THE

BOOK IS ABOUT AN EAMPLEG

ANGEL WHO RETURNS A RING TO

ME THAT WAS VERY PRECIOUS,

THAT MY FATHER GAVE TO ME.

THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I KNEW

THEY ARE AROUND ALL OF THE

TIME.

IN JERUSALEM, MY LIFE WAS

SAVED BY AN ANGEL.

ANGELS DON'T TAKE

ANYTHING AWAY FROM GOD OR

JESUS, BUT WE'RE NOT

SUPPOSED TO WORSHIP ANGELS,

ARE WE?

I'M SO GLAD YOU SAID

THAT.

BECAUSE SOME SAY WHY WRITE A

BOOK ABOUT ANGELS.

WHY NOT WRITE A BOOK ABOUT

GOD AND JESUS.

BUT GOD CREATED THE ANGELS

TO BE WITH US AND HELP US.

SO IT DOESN'T DETRACT FROM

GOD OR JESUS AT ALL.

ANGELS APPEAR IN

DIFFERENT FORMS.

SOME ARE THE CARTOON

FIGURINES -- CHARUBS --

LITTLE, FAT ANGELS WE PUT

ON THE CHRISTMAS TREE.

THEY NEED A DIET.

BUT THAT'S NOT AN ANGEL.

NO.

NO.

I HAVE DESCRIPTIONS OF

ANGELS IN THE BOOK.

AND THEY DON'T ALWAYS

COME WITH WINGS.

RIGHT.

AND THEY COME IN HUMAN

FORM, DON'T THEY?

I HAVE THREE WAYS THEY

APPEAR.

ONE IS INVISIBLE -- YOU

SENSE THEIR PRESENCE.

AND THE SECOND WAY IS IN

WHAT I CALL THE TRADITIONAL

BODY.

WINGS, BRIGHT, GLOWING, KIND

OF ANGELIC.

AND THE THIRD WAY IS IN

HUMAN FORM.

THEY JUST SHOW UP IN HUMAN

FORM.

THEY LOOK LIKE HUMANS AND

THEY ACT LIKE HUMANS, ONLY

THEY'RE A LOT QUIETER.

AND THEY DO WHAT THEY'RE

ASSIGNED TO DO, AND THEN

THEY LEAVE.

I NOTICED IN SCRIPTURE,

THROUGHOUT VARIOUS TIMES

ANGELS SHOWED UP AND PEOPLE,

TO USE THE TERM, "FREAKED

OUT."

THEY DID.

BUT THEY ALSO ACCOMPANY

THEIR APPEARANCE WITH PEACE

BE UNTO YOU.

IT'S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

YES.

IS THAT ONE OF THE FRUITS

OF WHAT YOU RESPOND TO TO AN

ANGEL, IF THEY DO SHOW UP?

OH, YEAH.

THEY BRING GOD'S PRESENCE,

GOD PEACE AND GOD'S KINGDOM.

LIKE JOHN, ON THE ISLAND OF

PATMOS, HE FELT LIKE HE WAS

DEAD AT THE FEET OF JESUS.

HE FELL DOWN AND TRIED TO

WORSHIP AN ANGEL IN ONE OF

THE CHAPTERS, AND THE ANGEL

SAID, DON'T DO THAT.

ONLY WORSHIP GOD.

AND THERE ARE ALSO DARK

ANGELS THAT COME FROM THE

NETHERLAND, FROM THE PIT, OR

WHEREVER THEY COME FROM.

YES.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE ANGELS?

WELL, THOSE ARE THE

DANGEROUS ONES.

THEY'RE LED BY LUCIFER, OR

SATAN, WEREN' WE CALL HIM

NOW.

THE BIBLE SEEMS TO INDICATE

THAT A THIRD OF THE ANGELIC

FORMS WENT WITH LUCIFER.

AND THEOLOGICAL, WE

UNDERSTAND THOSE ARE DEMONS

WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH IN THE

CHURCH.

HOW DO PEOPLE

DISTINGUISH -- WELL, IT

SEEMS OBVIOUS -- BUT FROM

GOD OR FROM LUCIFER?

WHAT DO THEY DO?

IN MY PERSONAL OPINION,

WHEN A HOLY ANGEL COMES, YOU

CAN SENSE GOD'S PRESENCE AND

GOD'S PEACE.

WHEN A DEMON SHOWS UP, THEY

CARRY THE ONE THAT THEY

FOLLOW, THE DARKNESS.

AND IT'S FEAR AND ALL OF

THOSE OTHER THINGS.

SO WHEN THE LADY IN THE

STORY SAID SEND YOUR ANGELS,

IS THAT LEGITIMATE TO ASK

FOR THAT?

THE BIBLE SAYS, PRAY TO

THE FATHER AND ASK HIM TO

SEND ANGELS.

I GET A LITTLE WORRIED WHEN

PEOPLE TELL ANGELS WHAT TO

DO BECAUSE THEY DON'T LISTEN

ANYWAY.

THEY DON'T PAY ATTENTION --

THEY'LL HEAR OUR PRAYERS, OF

COURSE, BUT THE FATHER IS

THE ONE WHO SENDS THE ANGELS

TO HELP US.

AND YOU WROTE THIS BOOK

SO WE COULD UNDERSTAND

THIS.

JUDITH McNUT, "INSPIRING

TRUE STORIES AND BIBLICAL

ANSWERS," AND ANGELS ARE FOR

REAL.

FOR REAL.

AND WE HAVE DENIED SO

MANY THINGS, JUST IN THE

CHURCH ITSELF --

WE HAVE.

MY HUSBAND AND I, WE HAVE A

HEALING MINISTRY, AND WE'VE

BEEN TOGETHER WITH THE

HEALING MINISTRY, WE FIGURED

OUT, OVER 100 YEARS.

TRYING TO BRING THAT MESSAGE

BACK TO THE CHURCH, THAT GOD

STILL HEALS TODAY.

SO ANGELS ARE A PART OF THE

KINGDOM OF GOD.

SO WE HAVE TO BRING BACK ALL

OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

"ANGELS ARE FOR REEL,"

REAL," AND YOU AND FRANCIS

DON'T LOOK AT ALL OVER 100.

I'M GLAD TO HEAR THAT.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, ONE MAN IN CHRONIC

PAIN FINALLY FINDS RELIEF.

FIND OUT HOW AFTER THIS.

Terry: BEING A

BRICK-LAYER IS A TOUGH

ENOUGH JOB AS IT IS.

FOR THE MAN IN OUR NEXT

STORY, THAT JOB BECAME EVEN

TOUGHER AS HE HAD TO WORK

THROUGH EXCRUCIATING PAIN.

Reporter: EVERY MORNING

AT 4:30 A.M., THEODORE

LEAVES HIS HOME TO GO TO HIS

JOB.

BUT FOR MORE THAN A YEAR,

PROBLEMS WITH HIS HANDS HAVE

MADE IT VERY PAINFUL FOR

THEODORE TO HANDLE THE LIME

AND OTHER CHEMICALS IN THE

CONCRETE.

THE PAINTING IS IN THE

CRACKS IN MY SKIN.

BUT IT FELT LIKES THE PAIN

WENT ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE

BONES IN MY HANDS.

EVERY DAY WHEN MY HANDS COME

TO THE CEMENT, MY HANDS

RADIATE WITH HEAT.

Reporter: THEODORE

FORCES HIMSELF TO WORK

THROUGH THE CONNIC CHRONIC

PAIN BECAUSE HE LOVES HIS

WIFE AND THREE

STEPDAUGHTERS.

THIS IS CARMEN, ONE OF THE

TWINS.

THEODORE HAS NO MONEY TO SEE

A DOCTOR, AND FOOD IS

ACTUALLY A HIGHER PRIORITY

RIGHT NOW.

SO HE GATHERS THE GIRLS

TOGETHER AND ASKS THEM TO

PRAY.

SOON AFTER THAT PRAYER,

"OPERATION BLESSING" SET UP

A MOBILE MEDICAL CLINIC TO

CARE FOR WORKERS AT THE

CEMETERY.

THERE A DOCTOR DIAGNOSED THE

CONDITION AND GAVE THEODORE

SOME CREAM TO TREAT THE

CRACKS IN HIS SKIN.

BUT AFTER A MONTH, THE

CONDITION WAS NO BETTER, SO

WE PROVIDED THEODORE WITH AN

ANTI-FUNGAL CREAM.

WHEN THAT DIDN'T WORK, WE

TOOK HIM TO SEE A

DERMATOLOGIST.

ONCE THE SKIN WAS OPEN,

IT BECAME INFECTED WITH A

FUNGUS THAT WENT INTO HIS

BLOODSTREAM.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" PAID FOR AN

EXPENSIVE DRUG THAT THEODORE

COULD NOT AFFORD.

WITHIN A FEW WEEKS, HIS

HANDS WERE GOOD AS NEW.

THANKS TO CBN AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" FOR

TREATING MY HANDS.

NOW I AM ABLE TO WORK

WITHOUT PAIN.

I AM HAPPY BECAUSE MY NEW

DADDY'S HANDS ARE ALL

BETTER.

THEY WERE VERY ROUGH BEFORE,

BUT FLO NOW THEY ARE SOFT

AND WARM.

Terry: A BRICK-LAYER

WHO'S HANDS ARE SOFT AND

SMOOTH, THAT'S A MIRACLE IN

ITSELF, ISN'T IT?

I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS WE

DON'T REALIZE HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES IS HOW

DIFFICULT IS FOR PEOPLE IN

OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD TO

GET HELP WHEN THEY HAVE A

MEDICAL NEED.

THERE IS NO DISABILITY

INSURANCE PLAN FOR THEM TO

FALL BACK ON.

AND BEYOND THAT, MOST OF

THEM HAVE NO MONEY TO GO TO

A DOCTOR.

GET-GO.

AND A LOT OF THE PEOPLE THAT

WE'RE ABLE TO SERVE AS "THE

700 CLUB" MEMBERS ARE PEOPLE

WHO ARE JUST IN KIN INKING

OUT A LIVING AND JUST

GETTING BY.

NO EXTRA MONEY FOR

UNEXPECTED MEDICAL NEEDS.

AND YET WHEN WE ALL JOIN

TOGETHER AND BECOME "700

CLUB" MEMBERS, WE CAN REACH

RIGHT INTO THE POINT OF NEED

IN FAMILIES LIKE THEODORE'S

AND WE CAN MAKE A HUGE

DIFFERENCE.

THIS IS A MAN WHO WANTS TO

WORK HARD.

WHO WANTS TO SUPPORT HIS

FAMILY.

HE JUST NEEDED SOMEONE TO

HELP HIM WITH THIS MEDICAL

NEED.

SO WE THANK YOU IF YOU ARE A

MEMBER OF "700 CLUB."

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

AREAS OF HOPE YOU'RE

BRINGING TO SOMEONE WHO

DIDN'T HAVE ANY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A

PART OF THAT AND YOU HAVEN'T

JOINED "THE 700 CLUB," IT IS

A VERY SIMPLE PROCESS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

YOUR PHONE AND CALL THE

TOLL-FREE NUMBER ON YOUR

SCREEN RIGHT NOW,

1-888-777-1999.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS SUCH A MINIMAL

COMMITMENT.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH,

AND YOU'LL BE JOINING WITH

THOUSANDS OF US WHO ARE OUT

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE

WORLD WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN

ONLINE, YOU CAN DO THAT BY

LOGGING ON TO cbn.com, AND

CLICK ON THE "HOW DO I

BECOME A MEMBER" BUTTON.

Scott: IS THAT WHAT IT

IS?

Terry: THAT'S WHAT IT

IS.

Scott: LET ME ADD RIGHT

NOW THERE ARE FOLKS WITH

PAIN IN YOUR HANDS, AND YOU

CAN FEEL HEAT GOING INTO

YOUR HANDS AND HE'S HEALING

YOU.

IF YOU'RE SENSING THAT, GIVE

US A CALL, AS TERRY SAID,

AND WE'LL PRAY FOR YOU ON

THE TELEPHONE.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE TO

DO.

AND GOD DOES MIRACLES.

UP NEXT, HE WAS CRUSHED

UNDERNEATH A TRACTOR-TRAILER

AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT.

THEY CAN'T FIND ANYONE

ELSE IN THE WORLD WHO HAS

EVER LIVED WITH FIVE MAJOR

ARTERIES BEING SEVERED.

THE ANGELS WERE THERE TO

HOLD ME TOGETHER.

Scott: HOW THIS MAN'S

LIFE WAS SAVED BY NOT ONE

BUT TWO ANGELS, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: BRUCE HAS IT'S

UNIQUE DISTINCTION OF BEING

THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD

WHO HAS EVER LIVED WITH FIVE

MAJOR ARTERIES BEING

SEVERED.

BRUCE IS ALSO THE VERY FIRST

TO ADMIT HE WOULDN'T BE HERE

TODAY WITHOUT THE HELP OF

TWO ANGELS.

Reporter: BRUCE

VANNATTA LOVED TRUCKS, AND

HIS JOB AS A SELF-EMPLOYED

DIESEL MECHANIC HELP HIS

CHRISTIAN FAMILY MAN LIVE

OUT HIS POWER TRUCK DREAMS

AND PROVIDE FOR HIS WIFE AND

FOUR CHILDREN.

HE NEVER GAVE A SECOND

THOUGHT TO THE DANGERS OF

WORKING ON ENGINES THAT

WEIGHED THOUSAND OF POUNDS,

UNTIL NOVEMBER 16, 2006.

I WAS WORKING ON A

PETERBILT LOGGING TRUCK

ABOUT AN HOUR FROM OUR

HOME.

THE GUY I WAS WORKING WITH

THAT DAY ASKED IF I WOULD

LOOK AND TRY AND DIAGNOSE

ONE MORE PROBLEM, ONE MORE

LEAK, BEFORE I LEFT.

IF YOU CAN PICTURE ONE OF

THESE BIG PETERBILT TRUCKS,

HERE IS THE FRONT BUMPER,

AND I SLIPPED UNDERNEATH

THAT BUMPER FEET FIRST.

HE HAD THE AXLE JACKED UP IN

THE AIR, AND THE AXLE IS

GOING RIGHT ABOVE MY CHEST.

Reporter: JUST AS BRUCE

SLIPPED UNDER THE TRUCK, THE

20-TON CAPACITY JACK SHOT

OUT FROM ITS POSITION.

THIS 10,000, 12,00,000

POUNDS OF WEIGHT ON THE

AXLE, CAME DOWN ACROSS MY

MED SECTION, BASICALLY LIKE

A BLUNT GUILLOTINE.

I COULD SEE THERE WAS LESS

THAN AN INCH OF AIR SPACE

BETWEEN THE BOTTOM OF THE

AXLE AND THE CEMENT.

SO I KNEW THAT I WAS

THINNER -- MY BODY WAS

THINNER THAN AN INCH.

THE MAN JACKED THE TRUCK UP

OFF OF ME.

I BEGGED HIM TO GET ME OUT

FROM UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK.

AND HE DIDN'T WANT TO

BECAUSE HE COULD TELL I HAD

A BROKEN BACK, AND I DID.

MY VERTEBRAE AND MY BACK

WERE CRACKED THE WIDTH OF

THE AXLE.

IT WAS THE MOST INCREDIBLE

PAIN YOU CAN THINK OF.

I NEVER FELT ANY KIND OF

PAIN LIKE THAT.

THE NEXT THING I DID WAS

CALL OUT, LORD, HELP ME.

I CALLED OUT TWICE, LORD,

HELP ME.

Reporter: INSTANTLY,

ALL OF THE PAIN LEFT BRUCE'S

BODY.

AT THAT POINT, MY SPIRIT

LEFT MY BODY, AND FLOATED UP

INTO THE CEILING, AND MY

SPIRIT IS LOOKING DOWN AT

THE ACCIDENT SCENE.

THE MAN I WAS WORKING WITH

IS ABOVE MY BODY.

HE IS SAYING THINGS, LIKE,

I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY.

AND ON EACH SIDE OF HIM WAS

A HUGE ANGEL.

IF YOU WOULD HAVE STOOD THEM

UP, THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN

EIGHT FEET TALL.

THEY DID NOT HAVE WINGS.

THEY WERE JUST VERY BROAD

SHOULDERS.

AGAIN, BETWEEN THE TWO

ANGELS AND HIM, IT TOOK UP

THE WHOLE FRONT OF THIS

TRUCK.

THERE WAS A BRIGHT LIGHT

SHINING AROUND EACH ONE OF

THEM.

THEY WERE MATCHING

BOOK-ENDS.

THEY LOOKED IDENTICAL.

THEY HAD THEIR ARMS

UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK, NOT

HOLDING THE TRUCK UP, BUT

HAD THEIR ARMS ANGLED IN.

THERE WAS NO PAIN.

JUST PEACE.

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE THE

PEACE THAT I FELT ON THE

CEILING.

Reporter: BRUCE KNEW HE

HAD A SERIOUS CHOICE TO

MAKE.

I WAS DEFINITELY ON THE

VERGE OF LIFE AND DEATH.

THERE WERE TWO VOICES,

THOUGHTS, IN MY HEAD.

ONE WAS SHUT YOUR EYES, GIVE

UP AND DIE.

AND YOU'RE JUST GOING TO GO

TO HEAVEN ANYWAY.

IT WAS VERY LOUD.

THERE WAS ANOTHER VOICE,

MUCH QUIETER, MORE OF A

WHISPER, AND THAT ONE SAID,

IF YOU WANT TO LIVE, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE TO FIGHT AND

IT IS GOING TO BE A HARD

FIGHT.

THE NEXT THING I KNEW, MY

SPIRIT WENT BACK INTO MY

BODY, LIKE THAT, JUST LIKE A

SHOT.

Reporter: BRUCE WAS

CONSCIOUS AS HE WAS FLOWN ON

A LIFE FLIGHT TO THE

HOSPITAL.

DOCTORS THERE DOUBTED HE

WOULD EVEN SURVIVE THE NEXT

FEW HOURS.

HIS RIBS WERE BROKEN, HIS

PANCREAS AND SPLEEN CRUSHED,

AND MAJOR ARTHURS HAD BEEN

SEVERED.

I HAD FIVE PLACES THAT

MAJOR ARTERIES WERE

COMPLETELY SEVERED.

THERE WAS A MEDICAL STUDY

DONE IN 2001, AND THEY HAVE

USED MY CASE AND COMPARED

IT, AND ACCORDING TO THAT,

THEY CAN'T FIND ANYONE ELSE

IN THE WORLD WHO HAS EVER

LIVED WITH FIVE MAJOR

ARTERIES BEING SEVERED.

I SHOULD HAVE BLED TO DEATH

IN A FEW MINUTES.

MY THOUGHT IS THE ANGELS

WERE THERE TO SOMEHOW HOLD

ME TOGETHER.

Reporter: BRUCE STAYED

IN THE HOSPITALS FOR OVER

TWO MONTHS, AND HE HAD

OVERWHELMING OBSTACLES TO

OVERCOME.

ALMOST 75% OF HI HIS SMALL

INTESTINES WERE CRUSHED AND

HAD TO BE REMOVED.

ADULTS HAVE 18 TO 20 FEET

OFÑi INTESTINES.

I WAS LOSING WEIGHT VERY

RAPIDLY.

THEY WERE FEEDING ME

INTRAVENOUSLY.

Reporter: HIS FRAME

DROPPED TO 126 POUNDS.

BUT BRUCE'S FAMILIES WAS

PRAYING.

IT WAS SOMEONE I MET ONE

TIME ON VACATION, AND HE

CAME AND PRAYED FOR ME IN

THE HOSPITAL.

PUT HIS PALM ON MY HEAD.

AND HE PRAYED THE WAY JESUS

PRAYS.

HE SAID, SMALL INTESTINE, I

COMMAND YOU TO GO BACK IN

THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

WHEN HE DID, IT WAS LIKE

220 VOLTS CAME FROM HIS PALM

INTO MY FOREHEAD.

I COULD FEEL MY INTESTINES

MOVING.

Reporter: AFTER NINE

MONTHS OF HOSPITAL STAYS,

BRUCE WAS ABLE TO EVENTUALLY

FEED HIMSELF.

AND HE GAINED WEIGHT, ALL

THE WAY UP TO 170 POUNDS.

WHEN HE RETURNED FOR TESTING

, RADIOLOGY REPORTS REPORTED

HE HAD DOUBLED HIS

INTESTINES.

HE GAVE ME SEVERAL FEET

BACK.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS HALF AS

MUCH, THEY ABSORB THE

VITAMINS AND MINERALS AND

NUTRIENTS THAT I EAT

NORMALLY.

OVER AND OVER, THE LORD KEPT

CONFOUNDING THE DOCTORS,

FROM THEM SAYING I SHOULDN'T

HAVE LIVED, TO MY INTESTINES

MIRACULOUSLY GROWING BACK.

MY PANCREAS REJUVENATED BY

ITSELF, AND MY SPLEEN

REJUVENATED BY ITSELF.

GOD SHOWING UP AND SHOWING

HE IS THE MIRACLE WORKER.

Reporter: TODAY BRUCE

AND HIS FAMILY TRAVEL

TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT SUPER

NATURAL HEALING.

BRUCE HAS ALSO WRITTEN A

BOOK CALLED "SAVED BY

ANGELS."

MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE

AFTER MIRACLE, IT IS

EXCITING TO SEE WHAT GOD IS

DOING IN PEOPLE'S LIVES

TODAY.

AND THAT HE IS ALIVE AND

WELL.

AND HE WANTS TO REACH PEOPLE

AT THEIR POINT OF NEED.

WE HAVE A GOD WHO LOVES US

MORE WE CAN EVER IMAGINE.

AND HE POURS OUT OUR LOVE IN

SUCH AN AMAZING WAY THAT IT

IS UNDESCRIBEABLE.

Terry: HE WILL GIVE HIS

ANGELS CHARGE OVER YOU LEST

YOU SLIP ON A ROCK.

GOD SEES EVERY ASPECT OF

YOUR LIFE.

HE KNOWS EVERY HAIR ON YOUR

HEAD.

AND HE CARES.

IT MATTERS TO HIM.

ALL OF THE THINGS WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT ON THE PROGRAM

TODAY, THE ANGELS, THE

MIRACLES, THE SUPER NATURAL,

ARE ALL THERE FOR ONE REASON

AND ONE REASON ONLY: FOR YOU

TO KNOW YOUR FATHER.

FOR YOU TO KNOW THE ABBA

FATHER WHO KNOWS YOU AND WHO

CARES FOR YOU AND WHO HAS

PURPOSE AND PLANS FOR YOU.

IT SAYS HE KNEW YOU BEFORE

YOU WERE EVEN FORMED IN YOUR

MOTHER'S WOMB.

I KNOW THERE ARE MANY OF YOU

WATCHING SAYING, I HAVE A

NEED.

I HAVE SOMETHING I'M CRYING

OUT FOR GOD.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO PRAY WITH

SOMEONE ABOUT A SPECIFIC

NEED IN YOUR OWN LIFE TODAY,

THE NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-888-777-1999, IS A PRAYER

LINE.

YOU CAN CALL AND PRAY WITH A

FELLOW BELIEVER WHO HAS

GIVEN THEIR LIFE TO CHRIST,

AND HE WOULD LOVE TO BE

THERE WITH YOU, AND WOULD

LOVE TO PRAY WITH YOU AS YOU

SEEK THE THRONE OF GOD.

WE HAVE SOME OF YOU WHO HAVE

SUBMITTED QUESTIONS.

MARGUERITE?

ADAM ASKS, "DO ANGELS

HAVE THOUGHTS AND DREAMS OF

THEIR OWN, OR DO THEY MAINLY

DO GOD'S WORK?"

Scott: FROM WHAT I

UNDERSTAND FROM READING

SCRIPTURES, I THINK THEY'RE

GIVEN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

AUTONOMY, AND THEY DO MAKE

DECISIONS ON THE SPOT --

Terry: A LOT OF WARFARE

THAT GOES ON --

Scott: THERE REALLY

IS.

WHEN YOU READ THROUGH THE

SCRIPTURES, HOW MANY TIMES

ANGELS SHOW UP, AND WE JUST

DISCOUNT SO MUCH OF THIS.

THIS MAN'S STORY IS

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Terry: WHY DIDN'T HE

BLEED OUT?

Scott: WHY ISN'T THAT

ON THE FRONT OF THE "NEW

YORK TIMES"?

WHAT'S THE DEAL?

WE JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO

EXPLAIN IT, BUT I CHOOSE TO

BELIEVE IN FATHER, SON, THE

HOLY SPIRIT, AND THOSE ANGEL

GUYS.

Terry: WELL, GOD'S GOT

OUR BACK, CERTAINLY, AND HE

DOES IT IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

ANGELS ARE ONE OF THE WAYS

THAT HE EXPRESSES HIS GREAT

LOVE OF US, AND HIS CARE AND

NURTURE FOR US AS HIS

CHILDREN.

WE WANT TO BRING THAT TO YOU

TODAY, AS YOU WALK THROUGH

LIFE, TO KNOW THAT GOD HAS

YOU, GOD HAS GOT YOUR BACK.

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

PSALM 91 TODAY: "I WILL SAY

OF THE LORD, HE IS MY REFUGE

AND MY FORTRESS.

MY GOD, IN HIM I WILL

TRUST."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE HOPE TODAY HAS ENCOURAGED

YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.
