The 700 Club - August 14, 2013

An 18-wheeler truck ran into her, and Deerinda went from being trapped in her car to the stair steps of Heaven. Plus, a Muslim has a vision of Jesus and cries out to the one true God. Read Transcript


MY MOM SAID, ONE DAY

YOU'LL BE A MARTYR, MY SON.

Gordon: A TERRORIST

INVADES AMERICA FROM THE

INSIDE.

I MOVED TO THE BIBLE BELT

SPECIFICALLY.

Gordon: SEE WHAT STOPS

HIM.

IN TERRORISM, IF THEY

SAID WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF YOU, YOU BETTER

RUN.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES,

LET'S GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWS DESK.

Lee: GARD, THE DEATH

TOLL IS RISING AGAIN IN

EGYPT.

GOVERNMENT SECURITY FORCES

MOVED AGAINST PROTESTOR IT'S

THERE TODAY.

THEY WANT OUSTED PRESIDENT

MOHAMMED MORSI RETURNED TO

POWER.

REPORTEDLY AT LEAST 15

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: FROM THE AIR

AND THE GROUND, EGYPTIAN

SECURITY FORCES FIRED TEAR

GAS INTO TWO CAMPS ON

OPPOSITE SIDES OF CAIRO

EARLY WEDNESDAY.

> THEY WANTED TO BREAK UP

THE MASSIVE SIT-IN, STAGED

IN SUPPORT OF OUSTED

PRESIDENT, MOHAMMED MORSI.

IT IS THE LATEST CHAPTER IN

MONTHS OF TURMOIL IN THE

COUNTRY.

IN JULY, MASSIVE PROTESTS

FORCED THE MILITARY TO

REMOVE MORSI FROM POWER.

AND THEN MORSI SUPPORTERS,

BACKED BY THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, FOUGHT BACK

WITH SIT-INS, GIVING BIRTH

TO MASSIVE CAMPS LIKE THIS

ONE.

IT HAS ITS OWN RESTAURANT,

BARBER SHOP, AND A FULLY

FUNCTIONING HOSPITAL, WITH

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF

DONATED EQUIPMENT.

WE WILL STAY HERE.

Reporter: THIS CAMP HAS

BEEN HOME TO THOUSANDS OF

MORSI SUPPORTERS FOR MORE

THAN A MONTH.

THEY SIMPLY IGNORED ORDERS

FROM EGYPTIAN POLICE AND THE

MILITARY, WHO HAVE PROMISED

TO DIS MANTKEL A CALMLY.

I CAMP.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: THE STATUS OF

JERUSALEM WILL BE ONE OF THE

KEY ISSUES IN THE PEACE

TALKS THAT BEGIN TODAY

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS.

THE OFF-I U.S. IS BROKERING

THE TALKS.

THEY CONSIDER IT THE JEWISH

CENTER OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

AND DO NOT WANT IT TO BE

DIVIDED.

OVERNIGHT, ISRAEL RELEASED

DOZENS OF PALESTINIAN

TERRORISTS WHO HAD BEEN HELD

AS PRISONERS AS A GESTURE TO

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

BUT AS CHRIS MITCHELL

REPORTS, THAT MOVE WAS MET

WITH MIXED REACTIONS.

Reporter: PALESTINIANS

CELEBRATED IN THE STREETS AS

THEY WELCOMED THE 26

PRISONERS RELEASED FROM

ISRAELI JAILS.

MOST HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF

STABBING, HACKING, CLUBBING

OR SHOOTING TO DEATH

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIAN

COLLABORATORS.

MOST HAVE SERVED AT LEAST 20

YEARS.

MORE THAN HALF OF THE

PRISONERS WERE RELEASED FROM

RELEASED TO THE GAZA STRIP.

ISRAELIS ACROSS THE BOARD

WERE ANGRY OVER THE RELEASE

OF TERRORISTS.

SOME PROTESTED AFTER THE

SUPREME COURT REJECTED A

PETITION BY VICTIMS TO DELAY

THE RELEASE.

WE CAME HERE TO SAY

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

EACH TIME THEY RELEASE

MURDERERS AND TERRORISTS.

Reporter: THIS WAS JUST

THE FIRST OF SEVERAL

RELEASES OF 104 TERRORISTS

INTENDED TO HELP

NEGOTIATIONS.

THERE IS A COMPLETE MEDIA

BLACKOUT REGARDING THE

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN TALKS,

BUT EXPECTATIONS HERE ARE

LOW THAT THEY'LL LEAD TO AN

AGREEMENT.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Lee: HERE AT HOME, MORE

CHALLENGES FOR A BABY WHO

WAS BORN SEVERELY DEFORMED.

LAST YEAR WE BROUGHT YOU THE

STORY OF BABY ADAM.

HE WAS GIVEN A SECOND

CHANCE, THANKS TO THE LOVE

FROM TOTAL STRANGERS.

LORI JOHNSON TELLS US ABOUT

ADAM'S PROGRESS AND THE

DIFFICULTIES THAT LIE

AHEAD.

Reporter: WHEN ADAM WAS

BORN IN A CHRISTIAN

MISSIONARY HOSPITAL IN

INDIA, HIS BRAIN, HEART, AND

LUNGS WERE HEALTHY.

BUT HE WAS SO DEFORMED, HIS

FAMILY REFUSED TO TAKE HIM

HOME.

AND EVEN THREATENED TO KILL

HIM.

SO HOSPITAL EMPLOYEES,

JESSICA AND RASHA ADOPTED

ADAM, AND QUICKLY FOUND

CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA WHO

HELPED HIM.

LIKE DR. JOHN VANAUST, WHO

SPEARHEADED ADAM'S

TREATMENT.

GIVING DEEPLY,

SACRIFICIALLY, IS ONE OF THE

GREATEST GOD-SENDS THAT WE

CAN HAVE IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: NOW A YEAR

AND A HALF LATER, ADAM IS

DOING GREAT.

HE LAUGHS A LOT, LEARNS,

CRAWLS EVERYWHERE, AND HAS A

NEW BROTHER, ELLIOT.

WHEN I LOOK BACK, ROMANS

8: 28, THAT ALL THINGS WORK

FOR THE GOOD, AND I THINK

THAT IS VERY TRUE FOR ME,

JESSICA, ADAM, AND ELLIOT.

Reporter: DESPITE HIS

PROGRESS, ADAM CANNOT EAT

NORMALLY BECAUSE HE WAS BORN

WITHOUT THE ROOF OF HIS

MOUTH.

FOR THAT REASON HE CANNOT

TALK, EITHER.

EVEN THOUGH HE DESPERATELY

WANTS TO COMMUNICATE.

WHEN YOU TELL HIM TO SAY

SOMETHING, THOUGH HE CAN'T

SPEAK WORDS, LIKE FORMED

WORDS RIGHT NOW, WITH HIS

PALATE BEING OPEN, AND SO

ALL OF THE AIR COMES OUT

LOOSELY AND MAKES SOUNDS,

RATHER THAN FORM SPEECH.

Reporter: HE NEEDS HIS

PALATE REPAIRED.

HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO

SPEAK UNDERSTANDABLY.

THE FIRST TIME HE SAYS MOMMY

OR DADDY, I CAN JUST SEE

JESSICA AND RAJA BREAKING

DOWN IN TEARS.

Reporter: ADAM WAS

SUPPOSED TO HAVE HIS PALATE

REPAIRED EARLIER THIS

SUMMER, BUT THERE SIMPLY

WASN'T ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY

FOR THE SURGERY.

SO IT WAS POSTPONED UNTIL

AUGUST 23rd.

SINCE ADAM IS A CITIZEN OF

INDIA, HE DOES NOT HAVE

HEALTH INSURANCE, AND THE

HOSPITAL MUST CHARGE FOR

THEIR SERVICES.

SO ADAM'S PARENTS ARE

RELYING ON DONATIONS TO PAY

FOR THEIR SON'S TREATMENT.

THE NEEDED MONEY IS

$150,000.

I THINK WE HAVE CLOSE TO

$100,000.

Reporter: THIS MAY BE

THE LAST TIME ADAM NEEDS

FINANCIAL HELP.

NEXT YEAR HE IS EXPECTED TO

BECOME A U.S. CITIZEN.

THAT MEANS INSURANCE WILL

LIKELY COVER HIS FUTURE

TREATMENTS, LIKE NASAL

RECONSTRUCTION, AND

PROSTHETIC LEGS SO HE CAN

WALK, AND NEW HANDS FOR A

TIGHTER GRIP.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Lee: FOR MORE

INFORMATION ON BABY ADAM AND

HOW YOU CAN HELP, YOU CAN GO

TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

THOSE ARE TODAY'S TOP

STORIES FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL HAVE

THE REST OF TODAY'S "700

CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Gordon: STILL AHEAD,

RAISED FOR JIHAD.

MY MOM SAID, ONE DAY

YOU'LL BE A MARTYR, MY SON.

Gordon: A TERRORIST

INVADES AMERICA FROM THE

INSIDE.

I MOVED TO THE BIBLE BELT

SPECIFICALLY.

Gordon: SEE WHAT STOPS

HIM.

IN TERRORISM, IF THEY

SAID WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF YOU, YOU BETTER

RUN.

Gordon: ROSS RUNS A

LUCRATIVE BUSINESS, AND HE

HAS BEEN DOING IT FOR

DECADES.

AS HIS BUSINESS HAS

INCREASED, SO HAS HIS

GIVING, AND HE IS CONVINCED

THAT IS THE SECRET TO HIS

SUCCESS.

Reporter: ROSS HAS BEEN

IN THE INSURANCE BUSINESS

FOR OVER 40 YEARS.

TODAY THE ENTIRE FAMILY ARE

KEY PLAYERS AND THE

BUSINESS.

THE MOST SUCCESSFUL

INDEPENDENT BROKERAGE FIRM

IN THE REGION.

GOD'S BLESSING IS UPON

OUR AGENCY AND UPON OUR

STAFF.

SO WE LOOK FORWARD TO EACH

DAY AS A NEW DAY.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

BELIEVES THE SUCCESS OF THE

FIRM IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO

THEIR OBEDIENCE TO GIVING TO

GOD.

EVER SINCE I WAS A

CHRISTIAN, I'VE BEEN TAUGHT

TO TITHE AND GIVE.

I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED IT.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

HAS NEVER BEEN SATISFIED

WITH DOING THE MINIMUM.

PART OF THE EXTRA THEY GIVE

INCLUDES PARTNERING WITH

CBN.

THEY'RE SO ACTIVELY

INVOLVED IN WORLD MINISTRY

AND EVANGELISM, AND HAVING

TELEVISION PROGRAMS AROUND

THE WORLD AND REACHING

NATIONS.

Reporter: THEY'RE

ESPECIALLY EXCITED ABOUT

WHAT CBN IS DOING THROUGH

"ORPHANS' PROMISE."

TO SEE THE STORIES OF HOW

LITTLE THEY HAVE AND THEIR

SUFFERING AND STUFF JUST

BREAKS YOUR HEART.

THE MORE YOU CAN DO, THE

MORE CHILDREN YOU CAN HELP,

AND THAT'S REALLY BEEN

EXCITING FOR US.

Reporter: THE FAMILY IS

SO EXCITED ABOUT OR

"ORPHANS' PROMISE," THAT

THEY DONATE MONEY TO THE

MINISTRY FOR EACH NEW

INSURANCE POLICY THEY

WRITE.

AND THEY ALSO ENCOURAGE

EMPLOYEE DONATIONS.

IN 2010, THEY GAVE $20,000

TO "ORPHAN'S PROMISE".

AND THEY CHALLENGE OTHERS TO

GIVE.

I'M REEXAMINING MY ENTIRE

LIFE OF GIVING, MY ENTIRE

FINANCES, AND THE THINGS I

HAVE DONE IN THE PAST AND I

WANT TO INCREASE.

NOW IS THE TIME TO DIG

DEEPER.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE US

INCREASE, AND GOD WANTS TO

BLESS OUR EFFORTS.

AND GOD WANTS US TO TAKE

EVER BIGGER STEPS OF FAITH.

Gordon: ROSS AND

BARBARA HAVE LEARNED THE

SECRET.

HERE IT IS FROM 2

CORINTHIANS 9: "REMEMBER

THIS, A FARMER WHO PLANTS

ONLY A FEW SEEDS WILL GET A

SMALL CROP.

BUT THE ONE WHO PLANTS

GENEROUSLY, WILL GET A

GENEROUS CROP.

YOU MUST EACH MAKE UP YOUR

OWN MIND AS TO HOW MUCH YOU

SHOULD GIVE, FOR GOD LOVES

THE PERSON WHO GIVES

CHEERFULLY, AND GOD WILL

GENEROUSLY PROVIDE ALL YOU

NEED.

THEN YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND

PLENTY LEFT OVER TO SHARE

WITH OTHERS."

THAT'S THE PRINCIPLE THAT

WAS LAID DOWN BY THE APOSTLE

PAUL TO THE CHURCH HE

FOUNDED IN CORINTH.

THAT IF WE GIVE GENEROUSLY,P

W, IF WE MAKE UP OUR MINDS

THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE

GENEROUS GIVERS, THEN GOD

COMES IN.

BECAUSE HE LOVES THE

CHEERFUL GIVER.

HE COMES IN AND PROVIDES ALL

WE NEED AND PLENTY LEFT OVER

TO SHARE WITH OTHERS.

LET TODAY BE THE DAY WHERE

YOU RESOLVE, I'LL BE

GENEROUS.

I'LL BE GENEROUS.

I'LL TEST GOD IN THIS, AND

SEE IF HE WILL NOT OPEN THE

WINDOWS OF HEAVEN FOR ME AND

POUR OUT A BLESSING.

DO IT TODAY.

TERRY?

Terry: IN MANY PARTS OF

THE WORLD, HEALTH CARE IS

NON EXISTENT.

WHEN 13-YEAR-OLD TAM WAS

INFECTED WITH PARASITES, HE

BECAME SERIOUSLY ILL.

HIS VILLAGE HAD NO DOCTORS,

AND TAM WOULD HAVE DIED

WITHOUT HELP FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING."

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: AS A WIDOW,

TAH HAS COME TO DEPEND ON

HER 13-YEAR-OLD SON, TAM.

HE HAS BEEN A BIG HELP AT

HOME.

ESPECIALLY SINCE MY HUSBAND

DIED.

Reporter: WHEN THEY'RE

NOT HARVESTING BAMBOO, TAM

AND HIS MOTHER HARVEST FROGS

TO EAT FOR DINNER.

THEN ONE DAY TAM GOT VERY

SICK AND NEARLY DIED.

HE HAD SEVERE STOMACH

PAIN AND HIS FEVER WOULD NOT

GO DOWN.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

CBN WAS VISITING TAM'S

VILLAGE.

IMMEDIATELY WE TESTED THE

BOY AND FOUND HE CONTRACTED

A LIVER FLUKE, A PARASITE

THAT WAS SLOWLY KILLING

HIM.

A CBN STAFF MEMBER GAVE TAM

A STRONG ANTIBIOTIC

MEDICINE, AND IN A FEW DAYS

HE WAS FEELING BETTER.

BECAUSE LIVER FLUKES ARE

COMMON IN VILLAGES LIBYA

LIKE TAM'S, CBN IS TEACHING

THEM HOW TO PREVENT GETTING

THEM IN THE FUTURE, AND WE

DUG A WELL SO THE ENTIRE

VILLAGE WILL HAVE FRESH

DRINKING WATER.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, CBN,

FOR SAVING MY SON'S LIFE.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IF

YOUR SPOUSE DIES IN ANOTHER

PART OF THE WORLD, WHERE

PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN

POVERTY, YOU ARE ALONE.

YOU'RE WITHOUT MEANS OF ANY

KIND OF INCOME TO SUPPORT

YOUR FAMILY.

SO TO HAVE HIS LITTLE BOY

HAVE SOMETHING HAPPEN TO

HIM, THAT WILL PUT HER IN A

COMPROMISING SITUATION, AND

THE ENTIRE FAMILY, LEFT THIS

WOMAN WITH NO HOPE.

THAT'S THE KIND OF

SITUATIONS WE COME INTO,

PLACES WITH NO HOPE.

YOU, AS A "700 CLUB" MEMBER,

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

YOU SAW THE WATER WELL THAT

WAS DUG REALLY FOR THE WHOLE

COMMUNITY.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR

HELPING PEOPLE IN THAT WAY.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," YOU ARE TOUCHING THE

WORLD WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST, AND WE'RE SO ACTIVE

RIGHT HERE AT HOME IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

THE NUMBER TO CALL IS ON

YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND, BY THE WAY, IF YOU DO

THAT USING SOMETHING WE CALL

PLEDGE EXPRESS, THAT MEANS

YOUR BANK DOES ALL OF THE

WORK, AND YOU HAVE NONE OF

THE HASSLE AND DON'T HAVE TO

REMEMBER ANYTHING, BUT IT

SAVES US A LOT OF THE

ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS, AND WE

CAN PUT MORE OF YOUR IMIFTS

RIGH GIFTS RIGHT INTO

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

OUR WAY OF SAYING HEARTBREAK

IS TO SEND YOU "POWER FOR

LIFE" TEACHINGS EACH MONTH.

THESE ARE TEACHINGS WE

RECEIVE HERE AS CBN, AS A

FAMILY MINISTRY, AND WE'D

LOVE TO SHARE THIS WITH

YOU.

AND YOU CAN ALSO, BY THE

WAY, JOIN WITH US BY LOGGING

ON TO CBN.COM.

Gordon: UP NEXT, FROM

THE AGE OF SEVEN, HE TRAINED

TO BE A TERRORIST.

HIS MISSION WAS TO CONVERT

AMERICA FROM THE INSIDE.

I CONSIDERED MYSELF AS A

SORT OF ISLAM.

I THOUGHT I'M ANOINTED.

I'M UNIQUE.

I'M SELECTED.

I'M COMING TO A COUNTRY AND

A CULTURE TO CHANGE IT, AND

I HAVE THE POWER OF ALLAH

WITH ME.

Gordon: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN THIS MUSLIM

GETS CO CONVERTED.

Gordon: CAMAL WAS BORN

IN LEBANON, RAISED TO BECOME

A MUSLIM TERRORIST.

HIS MISSION WAS TO UNDERMINE

AMERICA FROM THE INSIDE.

48% OF THE MUSLIMS IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

BELIEVE HAD THEY ARE MUSLIM

FIRST AND AMERICANS SECOND.

OUR PURPOSE IS TO CHANGE

THIS CULTURE BECAUSE THEIR

I INFIDEL, AND WHAT THEY'RE

DOING IS NOT PLEASING TO

ALLAH, AND WE'RE THE SOLDIER

OF ALLAH WHO WILL MAKE THEM

DO IT.

Reporter: CAMAL SALIN

WAS BORN IN LEBANON TO A

DEVOUT MUSLIM FAMILY.

AS EARLY AS 4 YEARS OLD, HE

REMEMBERS SITTING AT THE

KITCHEN TABLE WHILE HIS

MOTHER TAUGHT HIM ABOUT THE

QURAN AND HIS DUTY TO

ALLAH.

MY MOTHER SAID, ONE DAY

YOU WILL BE A MARTYR, MUY

SON.

SHE SAYS, IF YOU KILL A JEW,

MY SON, YOUR HAND WILL LIGHT

UP BEFORE THE HOST OF

ALLAH.

Reporter: KAMAL WAS

SEVEN WHEN HIS PARENTS SENT

HIM TO MUSLIM TRAINING CAMPS

TO LEARN TO USE WEAPONS AND

ENGAGE AND KILL THE ENEMY.

AND THEY WERE TAUGHT

ANOTHER, MORE SUBTLE TERM OF

WARFARE.

WE WERE TRAINING FOR WHAT

IS CALLED CULTURE JIHAD.

IT IS UNLIKE THE SWORD,

UNLIKE THE RIFLE.

IT IS THE JIHAD THAT WILL

COME INTO YOUR WORLD.

Reporter: BY HIS 20s,

KAMAL WAS CHOSEN TO WAGE

CULTURAL JIHAD ON AMERICA.

IN ISLAM, LIBERTY,

FREEDOM, MONARCHY, ALL OF

THESE ARE IDOLS, AND THESE

MUST BE BROUGHT DOWN.

THE LIBILITY YO LIBERTY YOU

HAVE IN AMERICA IS

ANTI-ISLAM.

SO I MOVED TO THE BIBLE BELT

SPECIFICALLY.

THE BIBLE BELT WAS THE

STRONGEST OF STRONGEST.

THAT'S WHERE THE STOUT

CHRISTIANS ARE, AND I WANT

TO TAKE ON THE BEST OF THE

BEST BECAUSE I CONSIDERED

MYSELF AS A SORT OF ISLAM.

I THOUGHT, I'M ANOINTED.

I'M UNIQUE.

I'M SELECTED.

I'M COMING TO A COUNTRY AND

A CULTURE TO CHANGE IT, AND

I HAVE THE POWER OF ALLAH

WITH ME.

Reporter: IN THE EARLY

1980s, KAMAL ENTRENCHED

HIMSELF IN A SMALL,

MIDWESTERN TOWN.

HE BEGAN TARGETING MEN FROM

POOR NEIGHBORHOODS TO

RECRUIT THEM TO THE MUSLIM

FATE.

ONE AFTERNOON HIS LIFE WOULD

BE IN THE HANDS OF THOSE HE

HATED THE MOST.

I WAS GOING FROM ONE

PLACE TO THE OTHER TO DO A

RECRUITMENT.

AND I HAD A CAR WRECK.

I EJECTED OUT OF THE CAR,

LANDED ON MY NECK, AND BROKE

MY NECK IN TWO PLACES.

THIS MAN CAME RUNNING TO ME,

AND HE SAID, DON'T WORRY,

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

YOU AND EVERYTHING IS GOING

TO BE ALL RIGHT.

THE AMBULANCE CAME AND

PICKED ME UP, AND THEN I GO

TO THE HOSPITAL, AND THE

SURGEON LOOK AT MY CHART AND

SAID, SON, WE'RE GOING TO

TAKE CARE OF YOU, AND

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

ALL RIGHT.

THE SECOND DAY I WAKE UP IN

THE HOSPITAL, AND THIS HEAD

OF PHYSICAL THERAPY COME AND

READ MY CHART, AND HE TURNED

AROUND AND SAID THE SAME

THING, WORD FOR WORD, "WE

ARE GOING TO TAKE CARE OF

YOU."

Reporter: AT FIRST

KAMAL WAS FRIGHTENED BY

THEIR WORDS BECAUSE THESE

MEN WERE ALL CHRISTIANS.

IN TERRORISM, IF THEY

SAID "WE'RE GOING TO TAKE

CARE OF YOU," YOU BETTER

RUN.

Reporter: SURGERIES TO

REPAIR KAMAL'S BROKEN NECK

WERE SUCCESSFUL, BUT

RECOVERY WOULD TAKE WEEKS.

AFTER BEING DISCHARGED FROM

THE HOSPITAL, HE WOULD NEED

SOMEONE TO TAKE CARE OF HIM

WHILE HE RECUPERATED.

KAMAL HAD NO ONE.

SO THE ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

OPENED UP HIS HOME TO THIS

STRANGER.

IN HIS HOME, HE PUT ME IN

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROOM.

I BECAME, LIKE, PART OF LIAR

FAMILY.

THEY DIDN'T SEE ME AS ANY

DIFFERENT.

NOW THEY HAVE A BASKET SET

OUT FOR KAMAL TO GET MONEY

TO PAY MY BILL.

Reporter: KAMAL WAS

OVERWHELMED WITH THE

OUTPOURING OF CHRISTIAN

LOVE.

HE BEGAN TO HELP OUT WITH

COOKING AND CLEANING.

THEY HAVE A JEWISH PERSON

WHO CAME, AND NOW I'M

HUGGING JEWISH PEOPLE.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME?

Reporter: WHEN KAMAL

WAS ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF

HIMSELF AND RETURN TO HIS

APARTMENT, THE DOCTOR HAD

ANOTHER SURPRISE FOR HIM.

HE SAID, HERE ARE THE

KEYS TO THE HOUSE, AND THESE

ARE THE KEYS TO YOUR NOW

CAR.

WE JUST WANT TO BLESS YOU.

YOU CAN COME ANY TIME YOU

WANT.

I GO TO MY HOME AND CUST IS

THIS THICK.

AND I JUST GOT TO SETTLE

THIS ISSUE WITH MY GOD, TO

KNOW IF IT IS REAL OR MOT.

SO I WALK INSIDE.

I SHUT THE DOOR, AND I GO

RIGHT IN THE EASTERN WINDOW,

AND I FALL ON MY KNEES AND I

PUT MY HANDS TO THE

HEAVENS.

AND I CRY OUT TO MY GOD.

ALLAH, ALLAH, MY LORD AND MY

KING, WHY HAVE YOU DONE SUCH

A THING TO ME.

I'M OKAY WITH THE CAR

WRECK.

I'M OKAY WITH ALL OF THIS.

BUT WHY DID YOU PUT ME AMONG

CHRISTIANS.

I'M CONFUSED.

THESE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS,

THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

THEM.

THEY DON'T WANT TO KILL US.

THEY'RE NOT THE SAME THING

THAT I LEARNED ABOUT THEM.

ALLAH, THESE PEOPLE HAVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THEIR

GOD.

THESE PEOPLE, THEY CRY OUT

THEIR GOD AND THEY ANSWER

THEM.

I WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.

I WANT TO HEAR YOU LOVE ME.

IF YOU'RE REAL, SPEAK TO

ME.

I WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.

GET WHAT ALLAH SAID THAT

DAY?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Reporter: KAMAL FELT

THAT BECAUSE HE QUESTIONED

HIS FAITH, THE HONORABLE

THING TO DO WAS TO END HIS

OWN LIFE.

SO I WENT TO REACH OUT MY

GUNS AND PUT IT IN THE RIGHT

PLACE AND CLOCK OUT.

I HEARD THE VOICE.

THE VOICE KNEW ME BY NAME.

HE SAID, KAMAL.

KAMAL!

KAMAL!

WHY DON'T YOU CALL ON GOD,

THE FATHER OF ABRAHAM,

ISAAC, AND JACOB.

AND THEN I FELL ON MY KNEES

AND PUT MY HANDS TO THE

HEAVEN AS I HEARD THE VOICE,

AND I CRIED OUT WITH EVERY

FIBER WITHIN ME.

GOD, THE FATHER OF ABRAHAM,

IF YOU'RE REAL, WILL YOU

SPEAK TO ME.

GOD, THE FATHER OF ABRAHAM,

IF YOU'RE REAL, I WANT TO

KNOW YOU.

WELL, GOD, THE FATHER OF

ABRAHAM CAME TO THE ROOM,

AND HE FILLED THE ROOM WITH

HIS GLORY.

AND HIS NAME WAS YAWAY, THE

ONE.

AND HE HAS HOLES IN HIS

HANDS AND FEET.

HIS NAME IS JESUS.

I SAID TO HIM, WHO ARE YOU,

MY LORD.

AND HE SAID, "I AM THAT I

AM."

I SAID, I'M A SIMPLE MAN

WITH A SIMPLE MIND.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

HE SAID, I AM THE ALPHA,

I AM THE OMEGA, I AM THE

BEGINNING, I AM THE END.

I AM EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN.

I HAVE KNOWN YOU BEFORE I

FORMED THE FOUNDATION OF THE

EARTH.

I HAVE LOVED YOU BEFORE I

FORMED YOU IN YOUR MOTHER'S

WOMB.

RISE UP, KAMAL, YOU ARE MY

WARRIOR.

Reporter: THAT DAY,

INSTEAD OF TAKING HIS LIFE,

KAMAL GAVE IT O JESUS.

HE NOW HAS A NEW MISSION,

AND CHALLENGES THE COUNTRY,

CHALLENGING MUSLIMS TO

QUESTION THEIR ALLEGIANCE TO

ALLAH.

MY HEART DESIRE IS TO

REACH OUT TO MY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, THE MUSLIMS OUT

THERE, 1.5 BILLION MUSLIMS,

AND THEY'RE LIVING OUT THERE

AND HAY HAVE NOT TASTED THE

FREEDOM, AND THAT FREEDOM IS

IN GOD.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

OVER 20 YEARS SINCE KAMAL

LEFT THE ISLAMIC FAITH.

AND EVEN THREATS OF VIOLENCE

AND DEATH CANNOT STOP HIM

FROM SHARING HIS STORY.

HE IS REAL.

AND&AND IF YOU NEVER

EXPERIENCED GOD BEFORE, IF

YOU HAVE NEVER TASTED GOD,

AND YOU THINK, YOU HAVE

NOTHING TO LOSE, WHEN YOU'RE

SITSINSITTING IN YOUR HOME,

WHETHER YOUR A MUSLIM, A

NON-MUSLIM, A CHRISTIAN --

WHATEVER YOU ARE -- CALL ON

GOD, THE FATHER OF ABRAHAM,

SAY SPEAK TO ME, I WANT TO

HEAR YOUR VOICE.

Gordon: HE IS REAL.

IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND

HAVE OUR BEING.

YOU COULDN'T HAVE TO CALL

HIM DOWN FROM HEAVEN.

HE IS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU.

AND HE IS WAITING FOR YOU.

THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR,

"BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE DOOR

AND KNOCK.

IF ANYONE HEAR MY VOICE AND

OPEN THE DOOR, I'LL COME

IN."

WHEN YOU HAVE THE SENSE AND

THE KNOWLEDGE THAT IMO GOD

IS ALL AROUND YOU, HAD HE

HAS BEEN GUIDING AND SHAPING

EVENTS FOR YOU, HAD HE HAS

KNOWN YOU EVEN BEFORE YOU

WERE BORN HE KNEW YOU.

AND HE HAS A GREAT PLAN AND

PURPOSE AND DEST M KEST NE

DESTINY POR YOU.

WHEN YOU GET THAT, THERE IS

NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT.

NOW, HOW DO YOU GET IT?

YOU DO THE SAME THING KAMAL

DID.

YOU ASK.

YOU ASK.

GOD NEVER FORCES HIMSELF ON

ANYONE.

HE JUST SENDS MESSENGERS.

AND THEN WHEN WE ASK, WHEN

WE HEAR WHAT OTHER PEOPLE

HAVE EXPERIENCED AND THEN WE

ASK, WE SAY, I WANT THAT FOR

ME.

I'VE HEARD WHAT YOU'VE DONE

FOR OTHERS, AND I WANT THAT,

TOO.

I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

AND THEN HE HAS THIS GREAT

PROMISE: "WHEN YOU SEEK ME

WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, THEN

YOU'LL FIND ME."

NOW, NOW, SOME OF YOU HAVE

BEEN SEEKING EXPERIENCES,

MYTHICAL EXPERIENCES, AND

YOU'VE BEEN GOING THROUGH A

LOT OF EMOTIONS TO FIND IT.

A LOT OF FALSE TRAILS OUT

THERE.

BUT JESUS SAYS, "I AM THE

WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE

LIFE.

NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER

BUT BY ME."

WHEN YOU GET HAD IMRAIT

GREAT TRUTH THAT JESUS IS

THE ONE, THEN YOU CAN DO

JUST WHAT KAMAL DID.

FATHER OF ABRAHAM, SHOW ME.

SHOW ME, JESUS.

SHOW ME THE WAY.

SHOW ME THE TRUTH.

LEAD ME INTO EVERLASTING

LIFE, AND YOU GET THE SAME

TRUTH.

HE IS NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR

SACRIFICE.

HE IS NOT WANTING YOU TO DIE

FOR HIM.

HE DIED SO THAT YOU COULD

HAVE LIFE.

NOW, IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF

THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT, DO

THE SAME THING KAMAL DID.

IF YOU WANT TO GET ON YOUR

KNEES, GET ON YOUR KNEES.

IF YOU WANT TO RAISE YOUR

HANDS UP, RAISE YOUR HANDS

UP.

BUT THE IMPORTANT THING IS,

FROM YOUR HEART HAVE THAT

PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE REAL, SHOW

ME.

I NEED SOMETHING.

I NEED TO KNOW.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, THEN

YOU GET THE ANSWER.

SOP THISO IF THIS IS FOR

YOU, IF THIS IS WHAT YOU

WANT, BOW YOUR HEAD AND

CLOSE YOUR EYES.

SAY A VERY SIMPLE PRAYER.

HE'LL ANSWER.

HE'LL COME TO YOU.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE'LL DO FOR YOU.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO HAVE

A SECONDHAND EXPERIENCE.

HE WANTS YOU TO KNOW HIM

DIRECTLY.

AND WHEN YOU GET THAT, IT

CHANGES EVERYTHING.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

I WANT TO HEAR YOUR VOICE.

I WANT TO HAVE THE ASSURANCE

THAT YOU'RE WATCHING OVER

ME, YOU'RE GUIDING ME,

YOU'RE WITH ME.

SO, JESUS, RIGHT NOW I ASK

THAT YOU FORGIVE EVERYTHING

THAT I'VE DONE WRONG, THAT

YOU SET ME ON THE PATH OF

LIFE THAT YOU'VE CHOSEN FOR

ME.

THAT YOU CLEANSE ME.

AND THAT YOU OPEN MY EARS

AND OPEN MY EYES AND OPEN MY

HEART THAT I MIGHT

UNDERSTAND.

HEAR MY PRAYER.

COME TO ME NOW.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I PRAY A BAPTISM IN

YOUR LOVE.

I PRAY THAT YOUR LOVE WOULD

JUST POUR DOWN OVER THEM AND

THROUGH THEM, AND LET THEM

KNOW HOW MUCH YOU'VE LONGED

FOR A RELATIONSHIP WITH

THEM.

DO IT NOW, FOR I ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE

BIBLE SAYS ALL WHO CALL ON

THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL

BE SAVED.

AND WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS

LET SOMEBODY KNOW YOU DID

THAT.

IT'S A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

Gordon: FIVE YEARS OLD

AND SWORN TO SECRECY.

ONE OF THE MEN IN THE

CIRCLE SAID, WHAT DO WE DO

IF WE KILL HIM?

AND MY DAD SAID, WE'RE GOING

TO GET RID OF HIM.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THE AMERICAN PASTOR

IMPRISONED IN IRAN IS

SUFFERING FROM INCREASING

PAIN FROM HIS INTERNAL

INJURIES.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE REPORTS THAT

PASTOR SAEED ABEDINI

SUSTAINED THOSE INJURIES

FROM INTENSE BEATINGS SINCE

HE HAS BEEN IMPRISONED FOR

HIS FAITH.

IRANIAN AUTHORITIES DID

ALLOW HIM TO BE TREATED BY A

DOCTOR AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL,

AND HE HAS BEEN ON

MEDICATION.

BUT HIS PAIN HAS GOTTEN SO

BAD THAT AT ONE POINT HE

FAINTED.

HIS FAMILY WAS ABLE TO SEE

HIM BRIEFLY EARLIER THIS

WEEK.

A CHRISTIAN COUPLE IN IOWA

HAS RECEIVED VICIOUS THREATS

FOR REFUSING TO RENT THEIR

BUSINESS FACILITY FOR A

SAME-SEX WEDDING.

IN THE BLAZE.COM REPORT, HAY

FEAR THEIR BUSINESS COULD

SHUT DOWN.

DICK AND BETTER OWN AN ART

AND FRAMING SHOP.

A GAY COUPLE WANTED TO USE

IT FOR THEIR CEREMONY, BUT

THEY REFUSED.

THE FAMILY SAYS THEY HAVE

BUSINESS ASSOCIATES,

FRIENDS, AND FORMER STAFF

MEMBERS WHO ARE GAY, AND

HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THEM.

THEY SAY THEY WOULD SERVE

WAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: WHAT JENNY

WALLACE ENDURED GROWING UP

IN INCONCEIVABLE TO MOST OF

US, AND IT BEGAN WHEN HE WAS

JUST FIVE YEARS ALL.

WORST OF ALL, DANNY'S ABUSER

WAS HIS VERY OWN FATHER.

YOR DANNY WALLACE GREW UP

WANTING HIS FATHER'S LOVE

AND ATTENTION.

AT THE AGE OF FIVE, HE GOT

THE ATTENTION WHEN HE FATHER

RAPED HIM IN HIS WOODSHOP.

HE HAD FINISHED WITH ME

SEXUALLY, AND THEN GOT DOWN

FACE TO FACE WITH ME, WHERE

I COULD, FOR ONCE IN MY

LIFE, SMELL THAT ALCOHOLIC

BREATH.

AS HE EYEBALL TO EYEBALL

TOLD ME, IF YOU EVER SPEAK

OF HIS, I'LL TAKE YOUR

LIFE.

I'LL BURY YOU SOMEWHERE ON

THIS PROPERTY, AND THEY

WON'T FIND YOU POR YEARS.

Reporter: PHYSICAL AND

SEXUAL ABUSE CONTINUED THE

NEXT FEW YEARS, DRIVING

DANNY DEEP INTO PERSONAL AND

SEXUAL CONFUSION.

IT DESTROYED MY VISION OF

WHO I WAS INSTANTLY.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHO I WAS.

I WOULD BE WHATEVER IT TOOK

TO NOT HAVE TO DEAL WITH

WHAT MY FATHER'S ACTIONS HAD

SAID TO ME THAT I WAS, AND

THAT WAS NOTHING.

HAD I WAS NOTHING.

Reporter: FOR YEARS

DANNY TRIED TO EARN HIS

FATHER'S LOVE.

BUT WHEN HE WAS 10, HIS

FATHER LURED HIM INTO AN OLD

BARN WHERE A GROUP OF MEN

PAID HIS FATHER FOR SEX WITH÷÷

DANNY.

÷ FROM÷ FIVE UNTIL 10, YOU

KNOW, I WENT TO BED EVERY

NIGHT THINKING IF I CAN GET

IT RIGHT, MY DAD WILL LOVE

ME.

BUT ONE OF THOSE MEN IN THAT

CIRCLE IN THAT AFTERNOON

SAID TO MY DAD, WHAT ARE WE

GOING TO DO WITH HIM IF WE

KILL HIM?

AND MY DAD SAID, WE'RE GOING

TO GET RID OF HIM.

I REMEMBER IT AS CLEAR AS IF

IT WERE YESTERDAY.

I STOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF

THAT BARN, AND I SAID TO

MYSELF, THAT OLD MAN IS

NEVER GOING TO LOVE ME.

THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO.

THERE IS NOTHING I CAN SAY.

HE WILL NEVER LOVE ME.

Reporter: WHEN HE WAS

11, DANNY WENT TO A CHURCH

SERVICE WITH HIS AUNT AND

UNCLE.

HE HEARD A MESSAGE ABOUT A

FATHER IN HEAVEN THAT LOVES

HIM.

AND I REMEMBER THAT MAN

KNEELING BESIDE ME AND

PUTTING HIS ARMS AROUND ME

AND SAID, WOULD YOU LIKE TO

KNOW THIS FATHER?

AND I REMEMBER THINKING, IF

THERE IS SUCH A FATHER, IF

THERE IS A FATHER WHO LOVES

ME, WHO CAN SEE WHAT I AM

AND YET HE WILL ACCEPT ME

AND LOVE ME, THEN, OH, YEAH,

I WANT TO KNOW HIM.

IN THAT LITTLE COUNTRY

CHURCH ALTER, I DISTINCTLY

REMEMBER THE VOICE OF GOD

WHISPERING TO MY HEART,

DANNY, YOU HAVE FINALLY

FOUND A FATHER WHO WILL

NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE

YOU.

WHEREVER YOU GO, THE HIGHEST

MOUNTAIN OR LOWEST VALLEY, I

WILL BE THERE.

Reporter: DANNY GAVE

HIS LIFE TO GOD, AND FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME

FELT LOVE AND HOPE.

STILL, SEXUAL ABUSE

CONTINUED UNTIL HE WAS 17.

WHEN HE MARRIED HIS

GIRLFRIEND, LYNN, HE TOOK

HIS SECRETS WITH HIM,

INCLUDING HOMOSEXUAL

TENDENCIES.

I KNEW I LOVED HER WITH

ALL OF MY HEART, BUT I KNEW

I CAN NEVER LET HER SEE ME

WITHOUT MY DANNY WALLACE

MASK ON.

SHE CAN'T KNOW WHAT I'VE

BEEN THROUGH.

IF YOU SEE HOW BROKEN I AM.

IF YOU SEE THAT MY FATHER

HATES ME, YOU WON'T LOVE ME,

EITHER.

SO I HAD THAT SECRET.

THAT SECRET JUST CARRIED ON

ALL THE WAY THROUGH MY TEEN

YEARS, AND EVEN INTO MY

YOUNG ADULTHOOD.

Reporter: FOR YEARS,

DANNY LIVED A DOUBLE LIFE.

HE WAS A DEVOTED HUSBAND AND

FATHER AND ACTIVE IN HIS

CHURCH, BUT SECRETLY HE HAD

SEVERAL HOMOSEXUAL

RELATIONSHIPS.

HIS PASTOR KNEW SOMETHING

WAS NOT RIGHT, AND LOVINGLY

CONFRONTED DANNY.

HE DISCERNED MY ISSUE.

CAME TO MY HOME AND PRETTY

MUCH SAT ME DOWN, AND WITH

ALL OF THE LOVE THAT A

FATHER WOULD SAY TO YOU, HE

SAID, HIS IS WHAT I SEE, AND

THIS IS WHAT I THINK IS

HAPPENING.

WE WANT TO PAY FOR

COUNSELLING.

WE WANT TO GET YOU ALL OF

THE HELP THAT YOU NEED.

WE DON'T CARE HOW LONG IT

TAKES.

WE DO NOT WANT TO LOSE YOU.

AND I REMEMBER THAT PASTOR

LOOKING ME IN THE EYE, AND

HE SAID, I WILL NOT LET YOU

GO.

I JUST WILL NOT LET YOU GO.

WHATEVER IT TAKES, WHATEVER

YOU CHOOSE, YOU JUST KNOW

THAT I LOVE YOU.

AND THAT WE'RE HERE FOR

YOU.

AND I MADE THE DECISION THAT

DAY THAT IF THERE IS FREEDOM

TO BE FOUND FROM THIS

STRONGHOLD, I WANT IT.

I JUST KNEW THAT I LOVED

HIM, AND I KNEW I WANTED HIM

FREE OF WHATEVER THAT WAS

TEARING HIM APART.

BECAUSE HE LOVED US.

I KNEW HE LOVED ME.

Reporter: WITH THE

SUPPORT OF HIS FAMILY, HE

WORKED WITH A CHRISTIAN

COUNSELLOR AT UNCOVERING THE

ROOT OF HIS ISSUES.

WHERE A STRONGHOLD HAS

COME IN YOUR LIFE, THERE IS

A SPECIFIC DOOR THAT IS

OPEN.

I OFTEN TELL PEOPLE, IF YOU

CAN IDENTIFY THAT DOOR, THE

DOOR THAT LED YOU INTO YOUR

STRONGHOLD WILL BE THE DOOR,

WHEN YOU CAN IDENTIFY, THAT

LEADS YOU BACK OUT.

AND HE TOOK ME TO THAT PLACE

OF FREEDOM THAT IS FOUND IN

ABSOLUTE TRANSPARENCY.

WHERE I BEGAN TO PEEL AWAY

THOSE MASKS.

FREEDOM COMES FROM STEPPING

TO A PLACE WHERE THE ENEMY

CAN NO LONGER FOLLOW YOU.

THE ENEMY IS DARKNESS, AND

HE ABIDES IN DARKNESS.

WHAT HE REALLY HOPES WILL

NOT HAPPEN IS THAT YOU WILL

FIND THE COURAGE TO STEP

FROM THE SHADOWS INTO THE

LIGHT OF THE TRUTH OF JESUS

CHRIST.

BECAUSE IF YOU STEP THERE,

YOU WILL NOW WALK TO A PLACE

WHERE I CAN NO LONGER FOLLOW

YOU.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

FINAL STEPS HE TOOK TOWARDS

FREEDOM WAS TO FORGIVE HIS

DAD BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY.

I SAID, I WILL NOT DRAG

THIS BALL AND CHAIN ANY

FARTHER.

I WILL NOT GO TO BED HATING

YOU ANYMORE.

I WILL NOT GET UP WITH THE

MEMORIES OF THE PAST

DEFINING MY DAY.

I'M GOING TO LAY THIS DOWN

HERE.

WHAT FORGIVENESS HAD DONE TO

ME WAS TO LIFT ME OUT OF THE

PAIN OF THOSE OLD WATERS AND

PLACED ME ON A DRY BRIDGE OF

LOVE AND FORGIVENESS FOR MY

DAD.

Reporter: TODAY, DANNY

IS EAGER TO SHARE HIS STORY

ABOUT GOD'S LOVE AND

FORGIVENESS.

HE WANTS OTHERS TO FIND THE

SAME FREEDOM HE'S

EXPERIENCED WITH HIS

HEAVENLY FATHER.

HOW DESPERATELY WOULD YOU

LIKE TO BE FREE?

AND IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE

FREE, FREEDOM CAN ONLY COME

FROM STEPPING INTO ABSOLUTE

TRANSPARENCY WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

MY LORD, MY FATHER, THE ONE

WHO SPOKE TO ME AT 11 YEARS

OLD, AND SAID I WILL NEVER

LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU, HE

IS CAREFUL TO TELL US IN THE

DEPTHS OF OUR DISPAIR, I'LL

TAKE YOU AS YOU ARE.

I DIDN'T COME TO CONDEMN

YOU.

I CAME TO SET YOU FREE.

Terry: HOW DESPERATELY

DO YOU WANT TO BE SET FREE?

IT'S AVAILABLE TO EVERYBODY,

YOU KNOW.

SHAME IS A TERRIBLE THING.

IT KEEPS US IN BONDAGE.

AND THEN THE ENEMY WHISPERS

THE LIES THAT HE IS SO

FAMOUS FOR INTO OUR HEARTS.

IF YOU COME INTO THE LIGHT,

THEY'RE GOING TO KNOW WHO

YOU REALLY ARE.

IF YOU COME INTO THE LIGHT,

THEY'RE GOING TO JUDGE YOU.

IF YOU COME INTO THE LIGHT,

IT'S ALL OVER.

YOU'LL LOSE EVERYTHING THAT

YOU CARE ABOUT.

THAT'S THE LIE THAT KEEPS

YOU IN THE DARK.

BUT IF YOU COME INTO THE

LIGHT, THAT'S WHEN TH WHERE

THE FATHER IS.

THE TRUE FATHER, THE ONE WHO

WON'T LEAVE YOU, WON'T

FORSAKE YOU.

WHO HAS ALWAYS LOVED.

THE ONE WHO SAID HE SAW YOU

BEFORE YOU WERE FORMED IN

YOUR MOTHER'S WOMB, THAT HE

HAS A HOPE AND A FUTURE FOR

YOU.

THE QUESTION IS: WILL YOU

HAVE THE COURAGE TO STEP

OUT?

YOU KNOW THE MOST AMAZING

THING FOR MOST OF US IS,

WHEN WE STEP INTO THE LIGHT,

WE FIND OUT THAT THERE ARE

OTHER PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD

THE SAME COURAGE TO STEP OUT

OF DARKNESS IN THEIR LIVES.

WE'RE ALL WOUNDED.

IT'S JUST A MATTER OF WHO IS

WILLING TO COME TO THE FOOT

OF THE CROSS AND RECEIVE

FREELY THE PRICE THAT JESUS

HAS ALREADY PAID FOR US.

THAT'S WHAT HE DIED FOR, SO

THAT YOU AND I COULD BE SET

FREE.

SO THAT THE LIES OF THE

ENEMY COULD NOT TAKE ROOT IN

OUR HEARTS, COULD NOT RUIN

OUR LIVES.

BUT THAT WE COULD HAVE LIFE

AND HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY.

SO HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT TO

BE HEALED?

THAT'S REALLY THE QUESTION.

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT

FREEDOM?

I LOVE WHAT DANNY SAID WHEN

HE SAID, I'M NOT DRAGGING

THIS BALL AND CHAIN ONE MORE

INCH.

I'M LEAVING IT HERE.

YOU KNOW, FORGIVENESS IS

OFTEN A PART OF THAT.

AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW TODAY

THAT WHOEVER IT IS THAT HAS

WOUNDED YOU, WHETHER IT IS

ONE PERSON OR MANY,

FORGIVENESS DOESN'T MEAN

THAT YOU'RE SAYING WHAT THEY

DID TO YOU IS OKAY.

IT MEANS THAT YOU'RE

RELEASING THAT HOLD ON YOUR

LIFE AND SAYING, I'LL NOT

HOLD THIS BITTERNESS

ANYMORE.

YOU SEE, IT DESTROYS US.

IT DESTROYS US.

WE CAN GET BITTER, OR WE CAN

GET BETTER.

TODAY CHOOSE BETTER.

THIS IS GOD'S WORD FOR YOU

IN THE PLACE THAT YOU'RE

AT.

COME INTO THE LIGHT, HIS

MARVELOUS LIGHT.

IT'S THERE FOR YOU.

HE IS THERE FOR YOU.

WILL YOU PRAY WITH ME?

BEGIN THE PROCESS.

IT'S A PROCESS.

IT'S NOT THE KIND OF THING

WHERE YOU PRAYER, AND BOOM.

BEGIN THE PROCESS.

HE'LL LEAD YOU.

HE'LL SHOW YOU EXACTLY WHAT

DO COULD.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER.

FATHER, MY FATHER, I WANT TO

KNOW YOU.

I WANT TO BE SET FREE.

I WANT TO KNOW THE ABUNDANT

LIFE THAT JESUS TALKED

ABOUT.

AND I KNOW I'M ALL TANGLED

UP IN THIS WEB OF GARBAGE

AND JUNK AND STUFF THAT HAS

HAPPENED TO ME.

THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAID,

ACTS THAT HAVE BEEN

COMMITTED AGAINST ME.

OH, GOD, I WANT TO BE FREE.

JESUS, THANK YOU FOR DYING

ON THE CROSS SO THAT I COULD

BE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU THAT 2,000 YEARS

AGO YOU SAW ME, RIGHT WHERE

I'M AT TODAY, AND LOVED ME

ENOUGH TO HANG THERE, TO

DIE, TO PAY THE PRICE FOR

ME.

TODAY I RECEIVE THAT.

I RECEIVE YOU.

AND I GIVE YOU ALL THAT I

AM.

AND I WANT TO CONFESS TO YOU

THAT THOUGH I HAVE BEEN

SINNED AGAINST, I ALSO HAVE

SINNED.

I HAVE BEEN BITTER.

I'VE BEEN ANGRY.

I'VE HELD HATRED IN MY

HEART.

TODAY I'M GIVING ALL OF THAT

TO YOU, GOD.

I'M DROPPING THE BALL AND

CHAIN RIGHT WHERE YOU'VE

ASKED ME TO, RIGHT AT THE

FOOT OF YOUR CROSS.

SO COME INTO MY LIFE.

FORGIVE ME FOR MY SINS.

HELP ME TO LET GO.

HELP ME TO WALK IN FREEDOM.

I'M CLINGING TO YOU NOW, AND

I'M COMING INTO THE LIGHT OF

YOUR MARVELOUS LOVE.

AND I ASK YOU, JESUS, TO BE

NOT JUST THE SAVIOR OF MY

SOUL, BUT TO BE THE LORD OF

MY LIFE.

TEACH ME HOW TO LIVE FOR

YOU.

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND WHO

YOU ARE.

WHEN I READ YOUR WORD, OPEN

IT UP TO ME AND LET IT SPEAK

TO THE VERY DEEPEST PART OF

MY HEART.

AND WHEN THE ENEMY TRIES TO

WHISPER LIES TO ME, HELP ME

TO CLEARLY HEAR THAT VOICE

FOR WHAT IT IS, SEE HIM FOR

WHO HE, AND FALL AGAIN AT

YOUR FEET AND SAY, YOU ARE

THE ONLY VOICE I LISTEN TO,

THE ONLY ONE I SERVE.

THE ONLY FATHER I HAVE, WHO

WILL ALWAYS BE THERE.

THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME.

THANK YOU FOR WAITING FOR

ME.

THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME.

THANK YOU FOR THE POWER TO

LIVE IN FREEDOM.

THANK YOU FOR THE HOPE THAT

YOU'VE PLACED IN MY HEART

TODAY.

HELP ME TO WALK YOUR PATHS.

FILL ME NOW WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT, I PRAY.

EMPOWER ME.

EMPOWER ME TO LIVE FOR YOU.

IN JESUS' NAME, I PRAY.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, WE WANT TO HELP YOU

GROW IN YOUR WALK.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

GET INTO A BIBLE-BELIEVING,

BIBLE-TEACHING CHURCH IN

YOUR AREA.

GET WITH CHRISTIANS WHO KNOW

AND LOVE GOD.

YOU'LL KNOW IT BY THE WAY

THAT THEY LIVE.

IN YOUR OWN WALK, GET INTO

THE WORD OF GOD.

IF YOU'VE NEVER READ THE

BIBLE, IT IS GOD'S LOVE

LETTER TO YOU.

START WITH THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

READ WHAT JESUS HAS TO SAY

TO YOU, ABOUT YOU, FOR YOU.

AND WE WANT TO SEND YOU

SOMETHING CALLED "A NEW

DAY."

THIS IS A PACKET THAT HAS

BEEN PUT TOGETHER JUST FOR

YOU.

IT HAS GOT A C.D. IN IT AND

SOME SCRIPTURES.

AND WE'LL SHARE WITH YOU

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW THAT YOU

HAVE PRAYED THIS PRAYER.

HOW DO YOU GROW IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD?

IF YOU CALL THAT TOLL-FREE

NUMBER, 1-800-759-0700, JUST

SAY I PRAYED AND I WOULD

LIKE THAT "NEW DAY" PACKET.

WE JUST WANT TO BLESS YOU

TODAY AS YOU BEGIN YOUR NEW

LIFE.

COMING UP, WE'LL BE PRAYING

FOR YOU AND YOUR NEEDS, SO

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Gordon: STILL AHEAD, AN

18-WHEELER PLOWED OVER HER

S.U.V.

IT WAS VERY GRAVE.

SHE WAS IN A VERY, VERY

SERIOUS CONDITION.

Gordon: HOW SHE GOT A

SECOND CHANCE.

I WAS ON THE STAIRWAY OF

HEAVEN AND GOD WAS HOLDING

ME IN HIS ARMS.

Gordon: AND MADE A

MIRACULOUS COMEBACK.

IT IS AN EXCEPTIONAL

RECOVERY, ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: WHEN AN

18-WHEELER RAN A STOPLIGHT,

IT SHEARED OFF THE TOP OF

DORRINDA LOWE'S S.U.V.

AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT,

SHE WASN'T A CHRISTIAN, BUT

SHE IS NOW, THANKS TO AN

AMAZING VISION AND A

RECOVERY SO MIRACULOUS HER

DOCTORS CAN HARDLY BELIEVE

IT.

Reporter: DORINDA LOWE

NEVER SAW IT COMING.

A SEMI TRUCK RAN THE RED

LIGHT AND PLOWED OVER THE

TOP OF HER CAR.

THE 18-WHEELER NEARLY MISSED

HER HEAD, BUT PRACTICALLY

SEVERED HER ARM.

THE CAR LITERALLY COLLAPSED

AROUND HER, TRAPPING HER

INSIDE.

WE COULD TELL RIGHT AWAY

THAT BOTH OF HER ARMS WERE

BROKEN, AND WE KNEW AT LEAST

ONE OF HER LEGS WERE BROKEN,

POSSIBLY THE OTHER ONE, PLUS

WE WAS PRETTY SURE SHE HAD

SOME INTERNAL INJURIES TO GO

WITH THAT.

IT WAS A PRETTY LOW

PERCENTAGE ON WHETHER SHE

WAS GOING TO MAKE IT.

Reporter: RESCUE

WORKERS TRIED FOR 45 MINUTES

TO GET DORINDA OUT OF THE

CAR.

FINALLY SHE WAS

LIFE-FLIGHTED TO METHODIST

HOSPITAL IN INDIANA.

IT WAS VERY GRAVE.

SHE LOST A LOT OF BLOOD WHEN

SHE FIRST CAME IN.

THE FRACTURES THAT SHE HAD

WERE ALL VERY SERIOUS.

AND THEN WHEN YOU THROW IN

ON TOP OF IT SHE HAD ALL OF

THESE INJURIES AND

LACERATIONS AND TEARS IN THE

SKIN.

SHE HAD A RUPTURED SPLEEN

AND A RUPTURED LIVER.

SHE WAS IN A VERY, VERY

SERIOUS CONDITION.

Reporter: FOR TWO

WEEKS, DOCTORS TRIED TO PUT

DORINDA BACK TOGETHER.

SHE HAD TO BE RESUSCITATED

TWICE AND SUFFERED A MASSIVE

STROKE.

SHE HAD SEVEN DIFFERENT

SURGERIES, BUT REMAINED IN A

COMA.

DOCTORS OFFERED LITTLE HOPE

FOR HER SURVIVOR.

DORINDA'S MOTHER DIDN'T MOVE

FROM HER BEDSIDE.

AND EVEN THOUGH SHE WASN'T A

CHRISTIAN, SHE PRAYED TO

GOD.

WHEN I WOKE UP, I

REMEMBER SEEING GOD.

I WAS AT THE STAIRWAY OF

HEAVEN, AND WE WERE STANDING

AT THE BOTTOM, AND GOD WAS

HOLDING ME IN HIS ARMS.

I WAS HEALED LIKE A BABY.

I CAN REMEMBER JUST HEARING

THE VOICE BEHIND ME, TALKING

TO ME, SAYING, IT'S OKAY.

YOU'RE FINE.

YOU'RE SAFE NOW.

I KNEW THAT GOD WAS THERE.

I JUST KNEW IT.

I DID NOT SEE HIS FACE, BUT

I KNEW HE WAS HOLDING ME IN

HIS ARMS.

I KNEW HE HAD SAVED ME.

I WASN'T A CHRISTIAN.

I NEVER KNEW HOW TO ACTUALLY

ASK GOD TO FORGIVE ME FOR

ALL OF MY SINS.

Reporter: DORINDA HAD A

LONG AND HARD PHYSICAL

RECOVERY AHEAD OF HER.

SHE REMAINED BEDRIDDEN AT

HOME FOR THREE MORE MONTHS.

SHE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO DO

EVERYTHING AGAIN.

I WAS SO SCARED.

I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER

WALK.

I HAD A PHYSICAL THERAPIST

AT HOME.

THEY WORKED WITH ME AND

STUFF.

AND SO I LEARNED TO WALK ON

A WALKER.

AND THEN ON THE 24th, THEY

TOOK THE WALKER FROM ME, AND

I WAS WALKING ON MY OWN.

THEY WERE WATCHING ME, AND I

JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

I WAS CRYING.

I WAS, LIKE, OH, MY GOSH, I

AM WALKING.

Reporter: DORINDA HAS

SURPASSED ALL EXPECTATIONS

FOR HER RECOVERY.

THEY SAID I WOULD

PROBABLY NEVER USE THE RIGHT

ARM NEVER AGAIN.

THEY WERE NEVER SURE IF I

WOULD EVER WALK RIGHT

AGAIN.

BUT I DO WALK AND I DO USE

PLAY RIGHT ARM.

A LOT OF TIMES WE SEE

PATIENTS WITH BAD BONE AND

JOINT INJURIES, BUT TO SEE

SOMEBODY WITH THIS NUMBER OF

BONE AND JOINT INJURIES AND

THE ABDOMINAL INJURIES THAT

SHE HAD, THE BELLY INJURIES

AND THE STROKE, TO HAVE COME

BACK LIKE THIS, IT'S REALLY

PHENOMENAL.

IT IS AN EXCEPTIONAL

RECOVERY, ABSOLUTELY.

Reporter: EVEN MORE

THAN A SECOND CHANCE AT

LIFE, DORINDA IS THANKFUL

GOD SAVED HER FOR ETERNITY.

THERE IS A GOD OUT THERE,

AND HE WILL LISTEN TO YOU IF

YOU WANT TO TALK TO HIM AND

HAVE HIM COME INTO YOUR

HEART.

YOU KNOW, I'M LUCKY THAT I'M

HERE AND I GOT A SECOND

CHANCE.

THAT I DID NOT DIE, AND THAT

I GOT TO ACCEPT HIM INTO MY

HEART.

AND HE FORGAVE ME FOR ALL OF

MY SINS.

Gordon: GOD IS THE GOD

OF SECOND CHANCES, THIRD

CHANCES, FOURTH CHANCES --

YOU CAN'T RUN OUT OF CHANCES

WITH HIM.

AS LONG AS YOUR BREATHING,

YOU'VE GOT A CHANCE.

HERE ARE SOME OTHER

REMARKABLE RECOVERIES.

HERE IS ANDREA FROM

MISSISSIPPI.

AND SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

ENDOMETRIOSIS.

TOLD HER CHANCES OF HAVING A

BABY WERE ZERO, NEAR ZERO.

AN OPERATION WOULDN'T

IMPROVE THE ODDS MUCH AT

ALL, BUT SHE DECIDED TO HAVE

THE PROCEDURE ANYWAY.

WELL, SHE WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL ROOM BEFORE THE

SURGERY, AND "THE 700 CLUB"

WAS ON THE TV.

SHE HEARD TERRY SAY A WOMAN

WHO HAS A DIAGNOSIS THAT YOU

ARE BARREN, THE LORD IS

GIVING YOU THE DESIRE OF

YOUR HEART.

AFTER HER NEXT CHECKUP, SHE

ASKED THE DOCTOR, WHAT ARE

MY CHANCES?

AND HE SAID, WELL, I CAN'T

RAISE THE DEAD.

STILL, SHE CONTINUED TO

CLAIM THE WORD SHE HEARD ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

WELL, TWO MONTHS LATER, SHE

FOUND OUT SHE WAS PREGNANT.

AND TODAY SHE HAS A HEALTHY

BABY GIRL.

Terry: PRAISE THE

LORD.

Gordon: THAT'S AN

EXCEPTIONAL RECOVERY.

Terry: I GUESS SO.

THIS IS 2003, MARIANNE WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH ARTHRITIS AND

OSTEOARTHRITIS.

SHE HAD TO CRAWL JUST TO GET

UP THE STAIRS IN HER HOME.

LAST MONTH SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND SHE HEARD

YOU, GORDON, GIVE THIS WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT A LEFT

KNEE.

THERE IS NO CARTILAGE, IT IS

BONE ON BONE, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU RIGHT NOW.

WITHIN A SHORT WHILE, THE

PAIN WAS GONE.

SHE CAN NOW WALK UP AND DOWN

THE STAIRS.

SHE HAS NO DISCOMFORT AT

ALL.

Gordon: THAT IS AN

EXCEPTIONAL RECOVERY.

WHAT ABOUT YOU TODAY?

CAN YOU GET AN EXCEPTIONAL

RECOVERY?

IF YOU'RE IN PAIN, JUST IN

AN ACT OF FAITH LAY YOUR

HAND ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING, AND

FOR ME.

AND GOD HAS HEARD YOUR CRY,

AND HE IS HEALING YOUR KNEES

RIGHT NOW.

BEGIN TO MOVE THEM AND SEE

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU.

Terry: THERE IS A

WOMAN, YOU'RE STANDING IN A

KITCHEN, AND YOU HAVE YOUR

COUNTER, AND YOUR HANDS ARE

BEHIND YOU.

GOD KNOWS YOU AND HE SEES

YOU, AND THE HING YOU'RE

SAYING, PLEASE SAY

"WHEELCHAIR" SO I KNOW ITS

YOU.

IT'S REALLY FOR YOU.

THAT WORD IS FOR YOU IN

JESUS' NAME.
