The 700 Club - August 15, 2013

After hard partying with friends, Steve woke up with a hangover and a revelation. Plus, Kristine mixed Christianity with the occult and was led down a spooky path Read Transcript


I WENT IN THERE, AND I

REALIZED THAT THERE WAS A

DEMON IN THIS PLACE.

Gordon: A GHOST HUNTER

GETS SPOOKED.

IT SCARED ME BECAUSE IT

SOUNDED INHUMAN.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES,

LET'S GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWS DESK.

Lee: GORDON, EGYPT'S

GOVERNMENT HAS STARTED A

MONTH-LONG STATE OF

EMERGENCY THROUGHOUT THAT

COUNTRY.

IT BEGAN WITH THE ARMY

STORMING TWO LARGE SIT-INS

BY THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

THEY WERE PROTESTING THE

OUSTER OF FORMER PRESIDENT

MORSI.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US THE

LATEST.

Reporter: MORE THAN 300

PROTESTORS WERE KILLED AND

THOUSANDS WOUNDED WHEN THE

MILITARY CLEARED THE TWO

PROTEST CAMPS OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IN CAIRO.

MORE THAN 40 POLICE DIED

DURING THE FIGHTING.

WHILE MANY NATIONS,

INCLUDING THE U.S. CONDEMN

THE VIOLENCE, THE EGYPTIAN

AUTHORITIES SAY THEY COULD

NOT ALLOW THE ANARCHY TO

CONTINUE IN THEIR OWN

CAPITAL.

AND SOME REPORTED THAT THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD USED THE

CAMPS AS MINI TERRORIST

BASIBASES TO TOR TORTURE

AND RAPE WOMEN.

ANYONE WHO THINKS THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IS GOING

TO GO QUIETLY AND GO AWAY

AND ACCEPT MILITARY RULE,

DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE

BROTHERHOOD, DOES NOT

UNDERSTAND THEIR HISTORY.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

TERRORISM ANALYST ERICK

STAKELBECK AND AUTHOR OF

"THE BROTHERHOOD, AMERICA'S

NEXT GREAT ENEMY," WARNS THE

END IS NOT IN SIGHT.

THIS IS A GROUP STEEPED

IN VIOLENCE, JIHAD.

THE ORIGINAL, MODERN

TERRORIST GROUP.

I PREDICT AND FEAR THAT THE

BROTHERHOOD WILL DECLARE A

JIHAD AGAINST THE EGYPTIAN

MILITARY, AND THINGS WILL

GET BLOODIER AND NAFT NAFTD

NASTIER BEFORE THEY GET

BETTER.

Reporter: THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD AND THEIR

SUPPORTERS HAVE ATTACKED

DOZENS OF CHURCHES,

CHRISTIAN BUSINESSES, AND

INDIVIDUALS.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

BLAMES EGYPT CHRISTIANS FOR

SUPPORTING THE OUSTER OF

MORSI.

THEY'RE ASKING CHRISTIANS

WORLDWIDE TO PRAY FOR THEIR

PROTECTION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Lee: AND THERE IS

GROWING EVIDENCE OF A MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD CONNECTION TO

THE ATTACK ON THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN BENGHAZI.

CBN NEWS CONTRIBUTOR RAYMOND

EASEAST BAYIBRAHIM WARNS

ABOUT THE ATTACKS ON 9/11.

HE WRITES, "THE EGYPTIANS

BELIEVE THE U.S. GOVERNMENT

IS FULLY AWARE AND

DESPERATELY PUSHING FOR THE

RELEASE OF BROTHERHOOD

LEADERSHIP, LESS WHEN THEY

ARE TRIED IN EGYPT COURTS,

ALL OF THESE DETAILS BECOME

COMMON KNOWLEDGE."

A COALITION OF CHURCH AND

MINISTRY LEADERS IS CALLING

FOR LEGISLATION TO END THE

BAN ON POLITICAL

ENDORSEMENTS FROM THE

PULPIT.

THE GROUP DEVELOPED THEIR

RECOMMENDATIONS AT THE

REQUEST OF IOWA REPUBLICAN

SENATOR CHARLES GRASSLEY.

HIS OFFICE HAS INVESTIGATED

TAX-EXEMPT GROUPS.

THE COALITION WANTS A LAW

THAT WOULD ALLOW POLITICAL

SERMONS DURING WORSHIP

SERVICES, AS LONG AS TAX

DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTIONS ARE

NOT SPENT ON POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN.

THE CHAIRMAN OF THE GROUP

SAYS THE CURRENT LAW STIFLES

WERE PASTORS CAN SAY BECAUSE

THEY'RE AFRAID THE CHURCHES

MAY LOSE THROUGH TAX EXEMPT

STATUS.

POLITICS SAY THERE IS NO

REASON TO CHANGE THE LAW.

A NEW GROUP CALLED "VOICE OF

THE VOICELESS," SAYS TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE

LEFT THE GAY LIFESTYLE, BUT

THEY'RE INTIMIDATED INTO

SILENCE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: IN THE

VOLATILE DEBATE OVER SEXUAL

ORIENTATION, THE VOICES OF

EX-GAYS ARE RARELY HEARD.

BUT A NEW ORGANIZATION,

"VOICE OF THE VOICELESS,"

WANTS TO CHANGE THAT.

I HAVE BEEN FREED OF THE

OBSESSION, THE COMPULSION OF

SAME-SEX ATTRACTION FOR OVER

40 YEARS.

I REALIZED BEING GAY WAS

NOT REALLY A TRUE EXPRESSION

OF WHO I REALLY AM AND

CHANGED TO EX-GAY.

Reporter: AND THEY ALSO

TOLD OF REJECTION AND HATE.

I HAVE SUFFERED MORE

DISCRIMINATION AND

INTOLERANCE AS AN EX-GAY

THAN I DID WHEN I WAS IN THE

LIFESTYLE.

MANY EX-GAYS ARE AFRAID TO

COME OUT OF THE CLOSET

BECAUSE OF THE HARASSMENT WE

RECEIVE.

Reporter: FOUNDER

CHRISTOPHER DOYLE TOLD CBN

NEWS-WATCH, IT IS TIME THE

WORLD LISTENS TO EX-GAYS.

Reporter: HE SAYS

STATES SHOULD STOP EFFORTS

TO BAN THERAPY FOR THOSE

SEEKING TO CHANGE.

THEY'RE LITERALLY TRYING

TO TAKE AWAY THE CHOICE TO

COME OUT OF HOMOSEXUALITY

AND PURSUE HEATHER

SEXUALITY.

WE SAY WE HAVE A RIGHT TO

CHOICE.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Lee: DOYLE ESTIMATES

THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF EX-GAYS, BUT NO ONE

REALLY KNOWS BECAUSE MANY DO

NOT COME FORWARD BECAUSE OF

HO HOSTILITY FROM GAY

ACTIVISTS.

THOSE OF THE TOP STORIES

FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL HAVE

THE REST OF THE DAYS STORIES

COMING UP AFTER THIS.

I WENT IN THERE, AND I

REALIZED THERE WAS A DEMON

IN THIS PLACE.

Gordon: A GHOST HUNTER

GETS SPOOKED.

IT SCARED ME BECAUSE IT

SOUNDED INHUMAN.

Gordon: THE PROOF OF

WHAT SHE HEARD --

THIS IS A REAL CLIP OF

THE AUDIO.

Gordon: AND HOW IT

HAUNTED HER.

Gordon: WELL, EILEEN

DENNY HAS A THRIVING MEDICAL

PRACTICE ON ONE OF THE

ISLANDS OF HAWAII.

SOUNDS LIKE PARADISE, AND IT

IS NOW.

BUT NOT LONG AGO DR. DENNY

WAS STRUGGLING JUST TO PAY

THE BILLS.

Reporter: EILEEN DENNY

HAS BEEN A CANCER DOCTOR FOR

OVER 30 YEARS.

HER ONCOLOGIST PRACTICE HAS

HELPED THOUSANDS OF PATIENTS

ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.

I WAS SUCCESSFUL -- VERY

BUSY, BUT SUCCESSFUL AND IN

SOLO PRACTICE, MAKING A GOOD

INCOME, AND I WAS ABLE TO

PROVIDE, AND EVEN SAVE, IN

THE BANK ACCOUNT FOR A RAINY

DAY.

Reporter: HER RAINY DAY

CAME IN 1998.

HER FATHER HAD BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER, AND

EILEEN MOVED TO HAWAII TO

CARE FOR HIM AND HER

MOTHER.

JUST TWO MONTHS AFTER SHE

ARRIVED, HER FATHER PASSED

AWAY.

SHE DECIDED TO STAY IN

HAWAII AND SET UP HER

ONCOLOGIST PRACTICE, BUT SHE

HAD FEW PATIENTS AND A LOT

OF OVERHEAD.

I DIDN'T KNOW THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY.

USUALLY IN ONCOLOGIST, YOU

NEED REFERRALS, AND I WASN'T

GETTING THE PATIENTS.

SO FOR FIVE YEARS, I WASN'T

EVEN MAKING OVERHEAD.

I COULDN'T PAY THE BILLS,

NOT REALLY.

AND I THINGS GO DOWN AND

DOWN, AND MY INCOME NOT

GOING UP.

Reporter: BUT AS A

CHRISTIAN, EILEEN BELIEVED

SHE NEEDED TO BE FAITHFUL TO

TITHING, EVEN IN THE MIDST

OF HER FINANCIAL CRISIS.

I LIKE TO OBEY THE WORD.

IT TALKS ABOUT TITHING,

GIVING 10%.

IT IS JUST SOMETHING IN MY

SPIRIT THAT I FEEL IS THE

RIGHT THING.

BECAUSE MY MONEY IS NOT MY

MONEY.

WHATEVER I EARN, IT COMES

FROM GOD.

SO 10% IS A SMALL AMOUNT.

Reporter: BUT THE

PRESSURE FROM HER FINANCIAL

SITUATION STILL WEIGHED

HEAVILY ON EILEEN.

I REMEMBER AT ONE MOMENT

JUST CRYING OUT TO GOD, HELP

ME LORD.

I CANNOT CARRY THIS HOUSE.

I CAN'T CARRY THE BILLS WITH

WHAT INCOME I HAVE.

Reporter: SHORTLY AFTER

HER PRAYER, SHE HAD A

BREAKTHROUGH.

SHE WAS INVITED TO JOIN A

TEAM OF DOCTORS AT A CLINIC

ON THE ISLAND OF KUAUI.

TODAY HER ONCOLOGIST

BUSINESS IS THRIVING.

MY FINANCES HAVE BEEN

RESTORED AND MORE.

GOD IS FAITHFUL.

I'VE LIVED LONG ENOUGH --

I'M IN MY 60s -- THAT I

CAN OVER AND OVER AND OVER

AGAIN HE IS FAITHFUL.

AND WHATEVER TRIAL I'M GOING

THROUGH, I JUST CLAIM THAT

PROMISE AND I STAND FIRM

THAT HE IS FAITHFUL.

Gordon: AND WHAT HE HAS

DONE FOR EILEEN, HE WILL DO

FOR YOU.

HE IS FAITHFUL.

HERE IS THE PROMISE, AND IT

IS THE ONLY TIME IN THE

BIBLE WHERE WE GET TO TEST

GOD.

MALACHI 3: 10: "BRING ALL OF

THE TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE THAT THERE MAY BE

FOOD IN MY HOUSE, AND PROVE

ME NOW IN THIS, SAYS THE

LORD OF HOSTS, IF I WILL NOT

OPEN FOR YOU THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND POUR OUT A

BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

THAT PROMISE IS AVAILABLE TO

YOU TODAY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ON THE

FIRST PART OF IT ACTIVATE

IT, AND SAY, I'M GOING TO

TITHE; I'M GOING TO GIVE.

AND THEN YOU GET THE GREAT

PRINCIPLE.

IT IS ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES

OF THE UNIVERSE, THE LAW OF

RES PROS SEE.

RECIPROCITY, GIVE AND IT

WILL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU.

Terry: THE BIRTH OF A

CHILD IS SUPPOSED TO BE A

HAPPY TIME.

BUT WHEN BABY ANNIE'S FATHER

FIRST SAW HER, HE WANTED TO

KILL HIMSELF, AND YOU'RE

ABOUT TO SEE WHY.

Reporter: ANNIE WAS

BORN WITH A CLEFT LIP.

AS THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTOR

TOLD HIM TO SCHEDULE SURGERY

RIGHT AWAY FOR HER, BUT THEY

COULD NOT AFFORD IT.

WHEN I LOOKED AT HER ON

THE BED, I WOULD BEGIN TO

CRY.

I ASKED GOD TO HEAL HER.

Reporter: DOUGLAS'

REACTION WAS EVEN MORE

HEARTBREAKING.

I WAS SO DISTRESSED, I

WOULD CRY.

AND AT TIMES, THE IDEA OF

KILLING MYSELF CAME INTO MY

MIND.

Reporter: ONE DAY ANNA

SAW A FLIER FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING," WHICH WAS

OFFERING FREE CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE SURGERIES.

ANNA APPLIED, AND A FEW DAYS

LATER "OPERATION BLESSING"

CALLED.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

IT WAS A MIRACLE.

I WAS NOT EXPECTING IT AT

ALL.

Reporter: BABY ANNA'S

SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFUL, AND

A FEW DAYS LATER WE WENT

BACK TO SEE HOW THE YOUNG

FAMILY WAS DOING.

I FEEL SO GRATEFUL TO

THOSE WHO HELPED OUR LITTLE

GIRL.

THEY ARE WONDERFUL.

I'M GRATEFUL THAT MY

DAUGHTER HAS A NEW SMILE AND

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOU KNOW, HERE

IN AMERICA IF A BABY IS BORN

WITH A CLEFT LIP, CLEFT

PALATE, IT IS CORRECTED

ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.

BUT IN OTHER PARTS OF THE

WORLD, PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE

MONEY TO DO THIS, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS NOT TERRIBLY

EXPENSIVE.

BUT THEY'RE SCRAPING BY JUST

TO MAKE A LIVING, JUST TO

SURVIVE.

SO THIS POOR LITTLE FAMILY

WAS DESPERATE.

WE SEE THIS ALL OF THE TIME

AROUND THE WORLD, AND WHERE

WE CAN, WHERE IT IS

POSSIBLE, WE DO COME IN AND

MAKE A CHANGE, LIKE WAS MADE

IN BABY ANNIE'S INSTANCE.

SHE'LL HAVE A SMILE FOR THE

REST OF HER LIFE.

SHE'LL BE ACCEPTED BY

PEOPLE.

SHE'LL BE ABLE TO HOLD A JOB

BECAUSE SHE CAN SPEAK

CORRECTLY.

AND SHE'LL BE ABLE TO EAT.

AND ALL BECAUSE YOU CARED.

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS ARE DOING

THIS ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

THE POWER OF ONE PERSON TO

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IS

IMMEASURABLE.

BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO

SAYS, I WANT TO BE A

WORLD-CHANGER.

"THE 700 CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY, AND WE

YOU'LL KNOW YOU'RE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE

ELSE'S.

GORDON?

Gordon: UP NEXT, A

HUSBAND TOOK UP AN INTEREST

ONLINE, AND THIS WIFE TOOK

UP AN INTEREST OF HER OWN.

I WAS A MEDIUM,

COMMUNICATING WITH SPIRITS,

SO I GOT ON THE INTERNET AND

SEARCHED GHOST-HUNTING

GROUPS IN MY AREA.

Gordon: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN THIS GHOST

HUNTER WAS SPOOKED BY HER

PREY.

UP NEXT.

Terry: AFTER HER

HUSBAND HAD AN ONLINE

AFFAIR, CHRISTINE DEVELOPED

AN INTEREST OF HER OWN,

GHOST HUNTING.

BUT ONE NIGHT CHRISTINE

CAUGHT HER PREY ON TAPE, AND

SHE GOT THE SCARE OF HER

LIFE.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

MCGUIRE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED

IN THE OCCULT AND GHOST

HUNTING, BUT ONE NIGHT SHE

REALIZED SHE WAS IN WAY OVER

HER HEAD.

I WENT IN THERE, AND IT

WAS A VERY ACTIVE NIGHT.

WE HAD SOME VERY STRANGE

THINGS HAPPEN.

AND I REALIZED THAT THERE

WAS A DEMON IN THIS PLACE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

SHE WAS A FULL-FLEDGE WITCH,

CHRISTINE STILL CONSIDERED

HERSELF A CHRISTIAN.

HER HUSBAND TOM EXPLAINS.

SHE HAD BLENDED

CHRISTIANITY WITH

WITCHCRAFT, WHICH WE'VE NOW

COME TO KNOW AS A TERM

CALLED SYNCROTISM.

BASICALLY I TOOK WHA I

GO NORD WHAT THE BIBLE SAID

IN CERTAIN PURPOSES, AND

TOOK THE REST OF IT TO MEAN

WHAT I WANTED IT TO BE, AND

FOLDED IT INTO WITCHCRAFT.

Reporter: WHEN SHE AND

TOM STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS

IN THEIR MARRIAGE, THEY

QUESTIONED THEIR FAITH.

THAT'S WHEN THINGS

STARTED TO KIND OF FALL

APART IN OUR MARRIAGE AND IN

OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

Reporter: AFTER TOM HAD

AN EMOTIONAL AFFAIR WITH A

WOMAN ONLINE, HE AND

CHRISTINE SEPARATED.

I FELT ABANDONED BY GOD.

I DIDN'T HAVE CONTROL OVER

MY OWN DESTINY, AND I WANTED

TO CONNECT WITH A FEMININE

ENERGY.

I WANTED TO CONNECT WITH A

GODDESS.

AND SO I FELT THAT FEMININE

ENERGY.

I THINK THAT IS WHY I WAS SO

DRAWN TO IT, BECAUSE IT

APPEALED TO ME AS A WOMAN.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS, CHRISTINE DOVE

DEEPER INTO WITCHCRAFT.

BUT SHE COULDN'T SHAKE THE

FEELING THAT GOD WAS TRYING

TO GET HER ATTENTION.

THE HOLY SPIRIT -- HE

JUST PRODDED ME FROM DAY

ONE.

HE WOULD -- I WOULD SAY HE

WAS POKING ME WITH A STICK,

TRYING TO HELP ME TO COME TO

MY SENSES BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,

I KNEW WHAT I WAS DOING WAS

WRONG, BUT I CHOSE TO IGNORE

THAT.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY STARTED GHOST

HUNTING.

BY THAT TIME I WAS A

MEDIUM AND COMMUNICATING

WITH SPIRITS ON MY OWN.

I WAS WATCHING THIS, GOING,

WELL, I COULD DO THAT.

SO I GOT ON THE INTERNET AND

I SEARCHED GHOST-HUNTING

GROUPS IN MY AREA.

Reporter: AT THE SAME

TIME, TOM REDEDICATED HIS

LIFE TO GOD, AND TRIED TO

RECONCILE WITH CHRISTINE.

I CALLED AND TOLD HER I

THOUGHT WE OUGHT TO GET BACK

TOGETHER, THAT GOD HAD A

GREATER PLAN THAN WHAT WE

HAD.

WE WERE REUNITED, AND HE

KNEW I WAS A GHOST HUNTER, A

MEDIUM AND A WITCH.

I DECIDED I WOULD GO WITH

THE FLOW, AND PRAY FOR HER A

LOT AND BE THAT PILLAR FOR

HER.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

REFUSED TO CHANGE.

BUT ONE NIGHT SHE REALIZED

THAT HER CHOICES COULD HAVE

SEVERE CONSEQUENCES.

I REALIZED THERE WAS A

DEMON IN THIS PLACE.

AT ONE POINT I FELT LIKE I

SHOULD COMMAND THIS SPIRIT

TO LEAVE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

THERE WAS AN AUTHORITY THAT

I HADN'T USED IN YEARS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU

ARE GOING TO LEAVE.

YOU'RE UNINVITED.

NOW HE IS GOING TO GO WHERE

JESUS SENDS HIM.

THE INTERESTING THING WAS

WE DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING

HAPPEN AT THAT TIME.

BUT A FEW DAYS LATER, I GOT

AN E-MAIL WITH A FILE

ATTACHED TO IT THAT HAS AN

E.Z.P. ON IT, A AN

ELECTRONIC VOICE

PHENOMENON.

AND IT HAPPENED TO BE THE

CLIP WHEN I TOLD THIS SPIRIT

IT HAD TO LEAVE IN JESUS'

NAME.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU

ARE GOING TO LEAVE.

YOU'RE UNINVITED.

NOW HE IS GOING TO GO WHERE

JESUS SENDS HIM AND NOT COME

BACK.

AND WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT

CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A

SCREAM.

IT WAS THE STRANGEST THING

I'VE EVER HEARD.

IT SCARED ME, TO BE QUITE

HONEST.

BECAUSE IT SOUNDED INHUMAN.

I HAD JUST HEARD A DEMON

REACT TO THE TRUE, HONEST

POWER OF JESUS' NAME.

I SENT THE FILE TO MY

HUSBAND.

BEING AN AUDIO ENGINEER,

I TOOK IT TO MY LAPTOP TO

SEE WHO EDITED THIS, AND IT

IS NOT THERE.

SO THIS IS LIKE A REAL CLIP

OF AUDIO.

AND SO IT REALLY FREAKED HER

OUT.

AND SHE STARTED REALIZING

THAT THERE WAS POWER IN

JESUS' NAME, AND HE WASN'T

JUST, YOU KNOW, A GOOD GUY

SHE SHOULD LISTEN TO, BUT

THAT HE WAS THE SON OF GOD.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

KNEW THEN SHE COULD NEVER

COMBINE WITCHCRAFT AND

SPIRITUALISM WITH

CHRISTIANITY.

I REALIZED THAT I HAD

BEEN FOOLED.

I HAD GIVEN MYSELF OVER TO

DEMONS.

AND IT WAS AT THAT MOMENT

THAT I LITERALLY GOT DOWN ON

MY FACE AND JUST POURED MY

HEART OUT TO THE LORD AND

BEGGED FOR HIS FORGIVENESS.

I RENOUNCED EVERYTHING I HAD

DONE.

I BELIEVED IN THE POWER

OF PRAYER.

I KNEW JUST PRAYING A LOT,

THINGS WOULD TURN AROUND.

I HAD FAITH THAT GOD COULD

DO IT.

THAT MEANT MORE TO ME

THAN ANYTHING.

THAT MY HUSBAND JUST

ACCEPTED ME WHERE I WASAT AT

THAT TIME, AND LOVED ME

ENOUGH TO TRUST GOD'S

HANDS.

Reporter: TODAY SHE

WARNS OTHERS ABOUT THE

DANGERS OF THE OCCULT.

YOU MIGHT NOT NECESSARILY

BE INVOLVED OR EVEN DABBLING

IN MAGIC OR GHOST HUNTING,

BUT YOU START READING ABOUT

IT, START WATCHING

TELEVISION PROGRAMS,

WATCHING MOVIES, SEARCHING

ON THE INTERNET -- AND I

THINK PROBABLY THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING I WOULD SAY

IS READ THE BIBLE AND

UNDERSTAND THE POWER THAT IS

BEHIND THESE THINGS IN THE

OCCULT BECAUSE IT IS A VERY

REAL POWER.

IT'S VERY REAL.

AND ITS ONLY INTENT IS OUR

SPIRITUAL DESTRUCTION.

I'M SO THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL

FOR GOD PULLING ME OUT OF

THAT DECEPTION AND OUT OF

THAT LIFE OF HARASSMENT THAT

I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE I WAS

LIVING.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE

POWER OF JESUS.

THE POWER OF JESUS, IT

SAVES, IT FORGIVES, IT

LOVES.

JESUS IS EVERYTHING.

OF.

Terry:

Terry: IT IS

RESURRECTION POWER.

IT REDEEMS THINGS THAT ARE

LONG LOST, DEEPLY LOST.

GOD'S POWER IS AMAZING.

YOU KNOW, SO OFTEN PEOPLE

GET INTO JUST EXPLORING SOME

OF THE THINGS CHRISTINE WAS

INTO BECAUSE THEY FEEL OUT

OF CONTROL IN THEIR

SITUATION.

THEY FEEL POWERLESS WITH

SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE

HAPPENING TO THEM.

THEY SEARCH FOR A PLACE

WHERE THEY CAN CONTROL.

DON'T MESS AROUND WITH

THINGS LIKE THIS.

GOD IS REAL, AND THERE IS A

TRUE ENEMY OF GOD.

THERE IS A DEVIL.

THERE ARE DEMONS.

THERE IS A DARK WORLD THAT

YOU AND I ARE NOT MEANT TO

EXPLORE.

WE WERE CREATED TO LIVE IN A

GARDEN WITH GOD FOREVER.

YOU CAN HAVE A DEEP

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

TODAY.

HE WANTS TO LOVE YOU.

HE WANTS TO KNOW YOU.

HE IS ABLE TO PROVIDE

EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED,

BUT THE POWER IS HIS.

NOT YOURS.

NOT MINE.

IT'S HIS.

YOU SAW, AS CHRISTINE WAS

READING THE WORD, IT

SAID, "MAN CANNOT SERVE TWO

MASTERS."

YOU CAN'T.

AND GOD IS JEALOUS FOR YOU.

HE IS JEALOUS FOR YOU TODAY

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU SO

MUCH.

THAT'S WHY ONE OF THE

COMMANDMENTS IS "THOU SHALT

LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH

ALL OF THY HEART, ALL OF THY

MIND."

THAT'S WHY GOD WANTS TO KNOW

YOU TODAY.

HE HAS PURPOSES AND PLANS

EVERY DAY, AND HE INVITES

YOU AND I TO BE A PART OF

THAT, BUT YOU CAN'T SERVE

TWO MASTERS.

TODAY, WILL YOU REANNOUNCE

ANRENOUNCE ANYTHING OF THE

THINGS YOU'VE BEEN INVOLVED

IN, THAT HAVE BEEN OUTSIDE

THE POWER AND THE REALM AND

THE WILL OF GOD.

ANYTHING YOU'VE ATTACHED

YOURSELF TO, LOOKING FOR

ANSWERS IN ALL OF THE WRONG

PLACES.

LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL OF

THE WRONG PLACES.

COME HOME TO THE HEART OF

JESUS TODAY.

THAT'S WHY HE CAME AND HE

DIED, TO SET YOU FREE.

HE SAID YOU WOULD KNOW THE

TRUTH, AND IT IS THE TRUTH

THAT WOULD SET US FREE.

AND THEN HE SAID, "I AM THE

TRUTH."

COME TO JESUS TODAY.

DON'T SETTLE FOR SECOND

BEST.

DON'T SETTLE FOR A

COUNTERFEIT.

WILL YOU PRAY WITH ME RIGHT

NOW?

LET'S JUST INVITE JESUS INTO

OUR HEART AND LIVES, AND

RENOUNCE ANYTHING THAT WOULD

SEPARATE OR DIVIDE US FROM

HIM.

PRAY WITH ME.

LORD, I WANT TO KNOW YOU

TODAY.

I ADMIT THAT IN MY

FRUSTRATION, IN MY

IMPATIENCE, IN MY FEAR AND

ANXIETY I HAVE LOOKED TO

OTHER THINGS FOR MY PEACE,

FOR MY POWER, FOR MY JOY,

FOR MY SENSE OF MEANING IN

LIFE.

AND I JUST WANT TO RENOUNCE

ALL OF THOSE THINGS TODAY.

I RENOUNCE ANY INVOLVEMENT

IN THE OCCULT.

I RENOUNCE DRUG USAGE.

I RENOUNCE DEPENDENCY ON

ANYTHING OTHER THAN YOU,

LORD.

AND I ASK YOU, JESUS, TO

COME INTO MY HEART TODAY TO

FORGIVE MY SINS.

ALL OF THEM, GOD.

FROM THE SMALLEST TO THE

LARGEST.

YOU KNOW EVERY ONE.

I AM CONFESSING IT ALL TO

YOU TODAY AND SAYING I AM SO

SORRY.

I'M ASKING YOU FOR A NEW

BEGINNING.

NOT BECAUSE I DESERVE IT,

BUT BECAUSE YOU ARE

MERCIFUL, GOD.

TODAY, WILL YOU BE THE

SAVIOR OF MY SOUL AND THE

LORD OF MY LIFE?

COME IN, JESUS, TO THE VERY

CORE OF ME.

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

AS I READ THE BIBLE, OPEN IT

UP TO ME.

OPEN THE EYES AND THE EARS

OF MY UNDERSTANDING SO I CAN

KNOW YOU, SO I CAN HEAR YOU

WHEN YOU SPEAK TO MY HEART.

I WANT TO BE SET FREE.

I WANT THE GIFT OF ETERNAL

LIFE THAT YOU OFFER.

I RECEIVE THAT TODAY.

THANK YOU, FATHER, FOR

LOVING ME, FOR HOUNDING ME,

FOR WAITING FOR ME, FOR

MAKING A PLAN AND A PURPOSE

FOR MY TOMORROW, AS WELL AS

FOR MY TODAY.

I RECEIVE IT ALL TODAY IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

PRAYER, THERE ARE STEPS THAT

YOU NEED TO TAKE TO HELP

YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE GROW.

AND WE'VE PUT TOGETHER A

LITTLE PACKET JUST FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY," AND

Gordon: COMING UP

LATER...A COWBOY WITH A

TEXAS-SIZED ADDICTION.

I NEVER WAS A GUY WHO

COULD, LIKE, HAVE A DRINK.

Gordon: AND A MONSTER

HANGOVER.

IT WAS LIKE YOU HIT ME IN

THE FOREHEAD.

Gordon: AND HOW HE GOT

ON THE WAGON FOR GOOD?

THEY THINK I MUST HAVE

SNORTED SOMETHING UP N MY

NOSE OR SOMETHING AND WENT

CRAZY.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

OREGON PLANS TO FOLLOWUP ON

A COMPLAINT A GAY COUPLE

FILED AGAINST A

CHRISTIAN-OWNED BAKERY.

THEY ASKED THE BAKERY TO

MAKE THEIR WEDDING CAKES,

BUT THE OWNERS REFUSED ON

RELIGIOUS GROUNDS.

THE BUREAU OF LABOR AND

INDUSTRIES DECIDED TO

INVESTIGATE WHETHER THE

BAKERY VIOLATED OREGON LAW.

A 2007 LAW PROTECTS AGAINST

DISCRIMINATION OF

HOMOSEXUAL, BISEXUAL, AND

TRANSGENDER PEOPLE IN PUBLIC

ACCOMODATIONS.

EXEMPTIONS EXTEND TO

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS, BUT

NOT PRIVATE BUSINESSES.

IN NIGERIA, ISLAMIC

MILITANTS ARE EXPECTED IN

THE MASSACRE OF 44 PEOPLE

PRAYING IN A MOSQUE.

THE RADICAL BOKO HARAM PLANS

TO INVOKE STRICT ISLAM.

IT HAS ALSO ATTACKED MOSQUES

WERE CLERICS HAVE SPOKEN

OUT.

THE GROUP IS STRONG ENOUGH

TO GO AFTER THE U.S.

YOU CAN GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK AFTER THIS.

Gordon: STEVE DIDN'T

NEED A PARTY FOR AN EXCUSE

TO GET DRUNK.

ANY TIME WOULD DO.

THEN ONE MORNING HE WOKE UP

WITH THE MOTHER OF ALL

HANGOVERS.

SO HE DECIDED TO HAVE A

LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS.

Reporter: WORKING AS A

HORSE AUCTIONEER ISN'T JUST

A JOB FOR STEVEN, IT IS A

PASSION.

HE ALSO LOVES CALF ROPING

AND SPENDING TIME WITH HIS

WIFE, ROBIN.

BUT YEARS AGO, STEVE'S

FAVORITE ACTIVITIES HAVE

OVERSHADOWED BY HIS LOVE FOR

ALCOHOL.

I NEVER WAS A GUY WHO

COULD, LIKE, HAVE A DRINK

AND THEN GO HOME.

IF I HAD ONE, I WAS GOING TO

HAVE TWO.

IF I HAD TWO, I WAS GOING TO

HAVE 12.

AND IF I HAD 12, THEN SOME

TIME IN THE NIGHT, I WAS

GOING TO BECOME RICH,

HANDSOME, AND BULLET-PROOF

ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

Reporter: STEVE HAD HIS

FIRST DRINK WHEN HE WAS JUST

NINE YEARS OLD.

HIS PARENTS WENT TO CHURCH,

BUT THEY WERE HEAVY

DRINKERS.

AS AN ADULT, STEVE

DISCOVERED ALCOHOL GAVE HIM

SOMETHING HE HAD ALWAYS

LONGED FOR.

IT MADE ME LIKED.

IT MADE ME POPULAR.

IT MADE ME FIT IN.

AND I MAY NOT CAN ROPE AS

GOOD AS ANYBODY, AND I MAY

NOT HAVE AS MUCH MONEY AS

ANYBODY ELSE, BUT WHEN WE'RE

AT THE BAR, YOU'RE GOING TO

LIKE ME.

HOWEVER MUCH IT COSTS,

YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE ME.

Reporter: BUT THE

ALCOHOL DIDN'T JUST MAKE

STEVE POPULAR, IT TURNED HIM

INTO A MAN HE BARELY KNEW.

IT JUST GUMMED ME DOWN

INTO A GUY I DIDN'T WANT TO

BE.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE THAT

GUY.

THAT'S NOT WHO I WANTED TO

BE, AND I KNEW IT.

Reporter: HIS POOR

JUDGMENT SPILLED OVER INTO

HIS MARRIAGE.

I COULD SPEND MONEY ON

THE DUMBEST STUFF.

I COULD BUY DRINKS FOR

EVERYBODY.

YOU COULD GAMBLE.

YOU COULD JUST BUY STUFF.

JUST DO DUMB STUFF.

Reporter: STEVE'S

DRINKING AFFECTED HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS

CHILDREN THE MOST.

I USED LANGUAGE THAT A

MAN SHOULD BE CRUCIFIED FOR,

IN FRONT OF MY CHILDREN.

I WASN'T MEAN AN ABUSIVE.

I WAS JUST VULGAR.

STUFF LIKE THAT.

IT'S NO GOOD.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

AFTER A NIGHT OF DRINKING,

STEVE WOKE UP WITH HIS USUAL

HANGROVER AND A REVELATION:

HE WAS TIRED OF HIS DRUNKEN

LIFESTYLE.

I GOT UP THAT MORNING AND

HAD TO GO TO WORK.

AND I WAS SICK, CAPITAL

SICK.

IT WAS LIKE YOU HIT ME RIGHT

IN THE FOREHEAD WITH A TOP

NECK.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY

LEFT.

AND I LAID THERE IN THAT

BED, AND I THOUGHT NOW I'VE

GOT TO PUT MY GAME FACE ON

AND GO AUCTIONEER THIS HORSE

DEAL, AND PRETEND LIKE I'M

FINE, AND I'M NOT FINE.

I TOLD THAT FRIEND, I'M NOT

DRINKING NO MORE.

I'M DONE.

HE TOLD EVERYBODY AND THEY

LAUGHED AT ME AND PICKED ON

ME ALL WEEKEND.

Reporter: BUT STEVE WAS

SERIOUS ABOUT HIS NEW

COMMITMENT.

HE JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

KEEP IT.

ON THE RIDE HOME AFTER THE

AUCTION, HE DECIDED TO TALK

TO GOD.

THAT NIGHT I CALLED ON

JESUS.

FOR SOME ODD REASON I DID

THAT.

NOBODY TOLD ME HOW TO PRAY

THIS PRAYER.

I JUST CALLED ON JESUS.

AND I MET HIM.

AND HE SAID, WHAT DO YOU

WANT?

AND I SAID I WANT TWO

THINGS: I WANT TO BE A GOOD

HUSBAND, AND I WANT TO BE A

GOOD DAD.

AND I DON'T WANT TO DO

ANOTHER THING AWAY FROM HOME

THAT I'M ASHAMED TO TELL MY

FAMILY WHEN I GET BACK.

AND ALCOHOL IS TURNING ME

LOOSE TO BE AN IDIOT, AND I

DON'T WANT IT ANYMORE.

I WANT RID OF IT RIGHT NOW.

AND HE SAID, IF YOU'LL GIVE

ME ALL OF IT, I'LL GET RID

OF THAT.

AND I SAID, I'M ALL YOURS.

AND IT MOVES ME EVERY TIME

AT HOW AWESOME IT IS FOR A

GUY LIKE ME, IN THE CAB OF A

PICKUP, TO HAVE YOUR SINS

FORGIVEN.

Reporter: HE DROVE HOME

THAT NIGHT AND STARTED A NEW

LIFE.

HE STARTED READING HIS BIBLE

AND GOING TO CHURCH WITH HIS

FAMILY.

IT IS PRETTY AMAZING WHEN

YOU PULL IN YOUR HOUSE AND

YOU TELL YOUR FAMILY, GET

UP, WE'RE GOING TO GO TO

CHURCH.

I JUST GOT SAVED.

AND YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

THAT MEANS.

THEY THINK I MUST HAVE

SNORTED SOMETHING UP MY NOSE

OR SOMETHING AND WENT

CRAZY.

THE GUY WANTS TO GO TO

CHURCH.

Reporter: STEVE SAYS HE

HASN'T HAD A DROP OF ALCOHOL

SINCE.

THE LORD WILL MAKE A MAN

HAY DEEP.

AND THE ABSENCE OF GOD IN MY

LIFE AND THE FEAR OF

DISAPPOINTMENT IN MY LIFE --

I'VE GOTTEN TO WHERE I

DESPISE EVIL.

THE ALCOHOL WAS SO DANGEROUS

IN MY LIFE, AND I DIDN'T

KNOW IT.

JESUS SAVED ME ON THE SIDE

OF THAT ROAD, SIGNIFIED BY

PUTTING HIS SPIRIT IN ME.

HE FORGAVE MY SIN AND HE

GAVE ME A CHANCE TO BECOME

CHRIST-LIKE.

Gordon: HE'LL GIVE YOU

THAT SAME CHANCE.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE'LL DO FOR YOU.

AND THE AMAZING THING IS

THAT HE DECID DIED FOR YOU,

JUST FOR YOU.

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE TO

EVER BELIEVE, HE STILL WOULD

HAVE COME JUST FOR YOU.

YOU'RE THAT IMPORTANT TO

HIM.

HE LOVES YOU THAT MUCH.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO SPEND

ANOTHER MOMENT WITHOUT YOU.

THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS.

THE GOOD NEWS THAT WE NEED

TO TELL EVERYONE.

HOW IMPORTANT YOU ARE TO

GOD, AND WHETHER YOU'RE IN

THE CAB OF A PICKUP OR

SITTING RIGHT NOW AT HOME,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

HIM.

NOW, WHAT DID STEVE ASK?

HE SAID, I JUST WANT TO BE A

GOOD HUSBAND AND A GOOD

FATHER.

AND IF YOU CAN DO THAT, CAN

YOU DO THAT FOR ME?

JESUS ANSWERED, IF YOU GIVE

ME ALL OF IT, IF YOU GIVE ME

ALL OF IT.

AND THAT'S THE KEY.

DON'T HAVE SECRET PARTS OF

YOUR LIFE, PARTS THAT GOD

DOESN'T HAVE.

GIVE HIM ALL OF IT.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM WITH IT.

HE IS THE ONE THAT CREATED

YOU.

AND HE HAS CREATED YOU FOR

GOOD THINGS.

HE HAS CREATED YOU FOR JOY.

HE HAS CREATED YOU TO HAVE

THINGS THAT WILL SATISFY

YOUR INNER MOST BEING.

HE HAS CREATED ALL OF THAT

FOR YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT BEFORE

THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH,

BEFORE THE HEAVENS WERE

ROLLED OUT, BEFORE ALL OF

THAT, HE WAS THINKING ABOUT

YOU.

AND HE WAS THINKING THAT

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE PLANS

AND A FUTURE AND A HOPE AND

GOOD THINGS TO WALK INTO.

NOW, THAT'S AN AMAZING GOD.

THAT'S AN AMAZING STORY.

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

ASK FOR IT.

THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO.

NOW, DO YOU HAVE TO HIT

BOTTOM LIKE STEVE DID?

NO.

DO YOU HAVE TO WAKE UP AND

SAY I HATE WHAT I'VE

BECOME?

NO.

YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW.

THE BIBLE SAYS, "WHEN YOU

SEEK ME WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, THEN YOU'LL FIND

ME."

AND IF YOU ASK HIM, HE'LL

COME.

IF YOU ASK HIM TO SPEAK TO

YOU, HE'LL SPEAK.

IF YOU ASK HIM TO SHOW UP,

HE'LL SHOW UP.

HE IS GOD WITH US.

HE IS EMMANUEL.

NOT FAR AWAY, BUT RIGHT

THERE.

RIGHT THERE WITH YOU, RIGHT

NOW.

FOR IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE

AND HAVE OUR BEING.

NOW, IF THIS IS YOU, IF

RIGHT NOW YOU SAY IT IS TIME

FOR ME TO GET RIGHT WITH

GOD, RIGHT NOW BOW YOUR HEAD

AND SAY A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER, AND GOD WILL DO ALL

THE REST.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS -- AND JUST TALK TO

HIM BECAUSE HE IS RIGHT

THERE WITH YOU RIGHT NOW.

JESUS, I OPEN MY HEART TO

YOU, AND I DON'T WANT TO

KEEP ANYTHING BACK.

I GIVE IT ALL -- I GIVE IT

ALL TO YOU.

AND I ASK THAT YOU COME IN,

THAT YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN,

THAT YOU GIVE ME A NEW

HEART, A NEW BEGINNING.

AND, JESUS, I ASK THAT YOU

FILL ME WITH YOUR SPIRIT AND

CHANGE ME.

AND IF YOU'LL DO THIS, I

WANT TO FOLLOW YOU ALL THE

DAYS OF MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

LET THEM KNOW JUST HOW MUCH

THEIR PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD

AND HAS BEEN ANSWERED, AND

HOW THEY'RE ACCEPTED NOW IN

YOUR FAMILY.

LET THEM FEEL YOUR PRESENCE,

LORD.

OPEN THEIR EARS SO THEY CAN

HEAR YOUR VOICE.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE

BIBLE SAYS THAT ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO NOW IS JUST CONFESS

WITH YOUR MOUTH.

LET SOMEBODY KNOW THAT

THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

THE BIBLE IS REAL CLEAR.

IF YOU CONFESS ME BEFORE

MEN, I'LL CONFESS YOU BEFORE

MY FATHER.

SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS

MAKE A TOLL-FREE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH THAT

GUY ON TV.

I ASKED JESUS INTO MY HEART,

AND I WANT TO LET SOMEBODY

KNOW I DID THAT.

WHEN YOU CALL, WE'VE GOT A

PACKET FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN HERE IS A WONDERFUL C.D.

TEACHING.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

THERE IS ALSO A BOOKLET WITH

BIBLE VERSES.

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET A

COPY OF THE BIBLE.

START READING IT EVERY DAY.

START WITH THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN.

IT IS THROUGH THE READING OF

THE WORD YOU RENEW YOUR

MIND.

WE ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

JOIN A LOCAL CHURCH, GO

THROUGH WATER BAPTISM.

ALL OF THAT IS PART OF WHAT

IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

SO START WITH THAT PHONE

CALL.

MAKE IT RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT, A

MOM GIVES BIRTH TO MIRACLE

TWINS, BUT THEN SHE NEEDS A

MIRACLE HERSELF.

THIS IS A HEALTHY,

VIBRANT YOUNG LADY WHO WAS

JUST DYING IN THE OTHER

ROOM.

THERE WERE FOUR GOOD DOCTORS

IN THAT ROOM, AND EACH ONE

OF US THOUGHT THE SAME THING

WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

PATIENT SURPRISED THE

EXPERTS, WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: WELL, THE MOM IN

OUR NEXT STORY

HAD A

DIFFICULT PREGNANCY, BUT SHE

DIDN'T MIND.

YOU SEE, THE TWIN BOYS SHE

WAS CARRYING WERE AN AWESOME

ANSWER TO PRAYER.

SO WHEN THEY WERE BORN, SHE

EXPECTED TO HAVE THE WORST

OF IT BEHIND HER.

INSTEAD, SHE GOT THE FIGHT

OF HER LIFE.

Reporter: WES AND KIM

FUNK HAD ALWAYS HOPED FOR

CHILDREN.

BUT DOCTORS TOLD THEM IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE.

BUT AFTER YEARS OF PRAYER,

KIMBERLY BECAME PREGNANT

WITH DOCTORS CALLED MIRACLE

TWINS.

IT WAS VERY EXCITING.

I WAS PROBABLY THE MOST

GLEEFUL DAD.

HERE WE ARE BEING BLESSED

WITH CHILDREN, THE

OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE TWINS.

IT WAS KIND OF A TEST.

I WAS SICK A LOT, BUT IT WAS

SUCH A BLESSING TO BE

PREGNANT, YOU DIDN'T WANT TO

FOCUS ON ALL OF THE

NEGATIVE.

SO EVERY WEEK WAS JUST SUCH

A BLESSING.

WE'RE THAT MUCH CLOSER.

Reporter: ON JULY 17,

1994, KIM GAVE BIRTH TO TWO

TWIN BOYS, KYLE AND CORY.

ALTHOUGH THEY WERE SIX WEEKS

PREMATURE, THE BOYS WERE

HEALTHY.

I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO REKS

O REKS RECOLLECTION OF MY

BABIES BEING BORN.

THERE WERE SIGNS THERE, BUT

NO ONE HAD DIAGNOSED WHAT

WAS GOING ON.

Reporter: DAYS LATER,

KIM SUDDENLY HAD SEVERE

ABDOMINAL PAIN.

THE NEXT DAY KIM WAS KIND

OF DELIRIOUS, AND IT ALARMED

ME.

AND I WOULD QUESTION THE

NURSES AND DOCTORS.

Reporter: KIM WAS

LIFTED OFF FOR TESTING.

CAT SCANS CONFIRMED THE

PRESENCE OF GALLSTONES AND

INFLAMMATION IN HER

GALLBLADDER.

SHE WAS TAKEN INTO THE O.R.

TO HAVE HER GALLBLADDER

REMOVED, A COMMON PROCEDURE

THAT TAKES THREE HOURS.

THREE, THREE AND A HALF

HOURS WENT BY, AND THE

DOCTORS FINALLY WALKED IN

THROUGH THE DOOR, AND THEIR

HEADS WERE BODE.

BOWED.

THEY TOLD ME SHE HAD LESS

THAN A 5% CHANCE OF LIVING.

Reporter: KIM HAD ACUTE

PANCREATITIS, AND HER

KIDNEYS AND LIVER WERE ALSO

FAILING.

SHE WAS IN A COMA, AND SHE

WAS PUT ON A RESPIRATOR.

I COULD SEE IN THEIR

FACES THERE WERE SO MANY

COMPLICATIONS THEY DIDN'T

EVEN KNOW ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

AND CLUTCHING KIM'S BIBE, I

WOULD GO TO THE CHAPEL AND

PRAY, GOD, YOU CAN'T LET HER

PASS AWAY AND LEAVE ME

BEHIND WITH THESE TWO BOYS.

SHE COMPLETES THE FAMILY.

WE HAD THESE CHILDREN

BECAUSE OF OUR LOVE FOR ONE

ANOTHER.

YOU GAVE US THIS MIRACLE OF

CHILDREN.

I NOW NEED ANOTHER MIRACLE.

I NEED A MIRACLE FOR KIM TO

STAY HERE.

PLEASE ANSWER MY PRAYERS.

AND NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE

DOCTORS WOULD TELL ME, I

STILL FELT I HAD TO BELIEVE

SOMETHING ELSE.

AND PRAYER WAS WHAT GOT ME

THROUGH THIS.

Reporter: OTHER FRIENDS

AND FAMILY MEMBERS STARTED

PRAYER CHAINS THAT

SNOWBALLED INTO COUNTLESS

GROUPS PRAYING FOR KIM

AROUND THE GLOBE.

EVEN KIM'S DOCTOR PRAYED FOR

HIS PATIENCE.

I NEVER FORGET MY MEETING

WITH WES.

I CAME INTO THE I.C.U., AND

HE SAID, YOU HAVE TO SAVE MY

BEAUTIFUL WIFE, DOCTOR.

THIS WAS A VIBRANT, HEALTHY

YOUNG LADY WHO WAS JUST

DYING IN THE OTHER ROOM.

THERE WAS NO OTHER WAY TO

DESCRIBE IT.

AND I FELT POWERLESS.

SO I WENT HOME THAT NIGHT,

AND MY WIFE COULD SENSE THAT

I WAS A LITTLE BIT

CONCERNED.

AND SO WE TALKED ABOUT IT.

I TOLD HER THE WHOLE

SCENARIO.

AND SUZANNE SAID, THIS IS

SOMETHING WE HAVE TO

SPECIFICALLY PRAY, PRAY FOR

KIMBERLY.

WE HAVE TO SPECIFICALLY PRAY

FOR HER, AND ASK FOR A

SPECIFIC INTERVENTION ON THE

PART OF THE LORD.

AND SO WE DID.

Reporter: BUT AS

DR. MULLENS RETURNED THE

NEXT DAY, KIM'S CONDITION

WAS WORSE.

THE DOCTOR DECIDED A FINAL,

HIGH-RISK SURGERY WAS ONE OF

THE LAST OPTIONS.

THE TIME WAS 10:45 WHEN

WE STARTED MOVING INTO THE

OPERATING ROOM.

Reporter: THE MOMENT

HIS SCALPEL HAD HIT HER

STOMACH, SHE HAD A RAPID

RELEASE THE FLUID.

WHEN YOU RELEASE THAT,

THE PRESSURE GOES DOWN AND

YOU NEVER GET THESE PEOPLE

BACK.

THERE WERE FOUR DOCTORS IN

THAT ROOM, AND EACH ONE OF

US THOUGHT THE SAME THING.

Reporter: BUT SUDDENLY

KIM'S BODY DID THE EXACT

OPPOSITE OF WHAT EVERYBODY

EXPECTED.

SHE DID A COMPLETE

REVERSAL FROM WHAT WE

THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO

SEE.

BY THE TIME MONDAY CAME

AROUND, SHE WAS OFF THE

RESPIRATOR.

HER KIDNEY FUNCTIONS WERE

NORMAL.

AND SHE CAME OUT OF THE COMA

WITH NO PROBLEMS

WHATSOEVER.

IT HAPPENED EXACTLY AS WE

ASKED THE LORD TO DO IT.

AND THAT HAD A PROFOUND

EFFECT ON ME.

Reporter: SEVERAL DAYS

LATER, KIM WAS ABLE TO SEE

HER BOYS FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

ON AUGUST THE 10th, WES

AND KIM, KYLE AND CORY WERE

ALL AT HOME.

IT WAS OVERWHELMING.

I DON'T NOW HOW TO DESCRIBE

AS I HEARD MORE AND MORE

PEOPLE WERE PRAYING FOR ME.

I WOULD NOT BE HERE IF

PEOPLE DIDN'T PRAY FOR ME.

IT IS SO CLEAR THAT GOD USED

THIS AS A MOMENT TO SAY,

LOOK AT WHAT I CAN DO.

HE CLEARLY WAS THE HEALER

HERE.

HE CLEARLY DID ALL OF THE

MAGNIFICENT MIRACLES.

Reporter: TODAY, 16

YEARS LATER, EVERYONE IN THE

FAMILY IS STILL HAPPY AND

HEALTHY, AND STILL

CELEBRATING THE MIRACLE THAT

GOD GAVE THEM YEARS AGO.

THERE IS NOT A DAY OR

MORNING THAT I WAKE UP THAT

I DON'T THANK GOD.

THAT HE ANSWERED MY PRAYERS

AND ALL OF THE PRAYERS

WORLDWIDE.

KEEP YOUR FAITH.

THE ODDS WERE AGAINST HER,

BUT A MIRACLE HAPPENED IN

THAT O.R. ROOM.

THAT'S THE POWER OF PRAYER.

Terry: A MIRACLE

HAPPENED IN THAT O.R. ROOM,

AND A MIRACLE CAN HAPPEN FOR

YOU TODAY BECAUSE WE LOVE

AND SERVE A MIRACLE-WORKING

GOD.

WE WANT TO BUILD YOUR FAITH

BY SHARING WITH YOU SOME

ANSWERS TO PRAYERS THAT

OTHERS HAVE EXPERIENCED IN

ADDITION TO THE STORY YOU

JUST HEARD ABOUT KIMBERLY.

Gordon: DEBRA IN

GEORGIA FELL AND DAMAGED

THREE DISCS IN HER LOWER

BACK.

SHE SAID THE PAIN FELT LIKE

SHE WAS BEING STRUCK IN HER

BACK.

HER DOCTOR RECOMMENDED

SURGERY, BUT SHE DECIDED

AGAINST IT.

LAST APRIL, SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND TERRY,

YOU HAD THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

"YOU HAVE A TREMENDOUS

PROBLEM WITH YOUR LOWER

SPINE.

IT IS WHERE IT SITS ON THE

GIRDLE OF YOUR HIPS.

IT IS EXCRUCIATING.

GOD IS TOUCHING AND HEALING

THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW."

DEBRA KNEW THE WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE WAS FOR HER, AND

SINCE THAT DAY SHE HAS BEEN

PAIN-FREE, AND THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

Terry: THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

CATHY, WHO LIVES IN HAPPY

VALLEY, OREGON -- YOU'VE GOT

TO LOVE THAT.

IN 1995, SHE COULDN'T SLEEP

AND BECAME SEVERELY

DEPRESSED.

HER DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER AS

BIPOLAR AND PUT HER ON

MEDICATIONS SHE WOULD HAVE

TO TAKE FOR THE REST OF HER

LIFE.

THEY DID NOT CURE THE

CONDITION.

LAST JANUARY SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM AND

SHE SAID, LORD, PLEASE LET

GORDON SAY MENTAL ILLNESS

AND BIPOLAR.

AND RIGHT THEN, GORDON, YOU

SAID,MENTA,MENTAL ILLNESS

AND BIPOLAR.

AND WHEN SHE KEPT HER NEXT

DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT, HE

CONFIRMED SHE DID NOT NEED

HER MEDS ANYMORE, THAT SHE

HAD BEEN HEALED.

Gordon: THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

JUST IMAGINE HOW BIG GOD

IS.

START THINKING ABOUT HOW BIG

IS POSSIBLE.

WHEN GOD SAYS ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE TO THEM THAT

BELIEVE.

YOU CAN LITERALLY TAKE A

MEDICAL SITUATION THAT ALL

OF THE TEXTBOOKS SAY IS ONLY

GOING TO TURN OUT THIS, AND

GOD SAYS, WELL, WITH ME

THAT'S POSSIBLE.

WITH ME, I CAN TURN THAT

AROUND.

WITH ME, I CAN TAKE THE

INCURABLE AND CURE IT.

I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE YOU

CAN NEVER BE TOO DEAD FOR A

RESURRECTION.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THE

DOCTORS SAY.

LET'S START BELIEVING GOD,

AND HOW BIG HE IS, AND HOW

BIG THAT "POSSIBLE" IS FOR

YOU TODAY.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND FOR THOSE CRYING OUT,

FOR THOSE WONDERING, HOPING,

CAN THIS BE FOR ME, CAN

JESUS BE FOR ME?

TOGETHER WE JUST COME IN

AGREEMENT WITH THEM AND SAY,

YES, HE CAME FOR YOU.

AND BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE

HEALED AND MADE WHOLE NOW,

IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH A

NERVE CONDITION, IT'S

THROUGHOUT YOUR BODY.

IT CAUSES FALSE SIGNALS OF

PAIN.

AND IT'S JUST DESTROYED YOUR

LIFE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT RIGHT

NOW.

YOU'RE JUST FEELING A

WARMTH, AND ALMOST LIKE A

BLANKET COMING OVER YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND YOUR NERVES ARE BEING

RESTORED.

ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS ARE

BEING HEALED.

AND IN JESUS' NAME, YOU'RE

HEALED AND MADE WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE

AN INOPERABLE TUMOR IN YOUR

BRAIN.

IT'S ALONG THE MIDDLE OF

YOUR SKULL, AT THE TOP, AND

IT GOES OVER BOTH LOBES.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

HE IS TAKING THAT AWAY NOW.

YOU JUST FELT A PRESSURE

RELEASE IN YOUR BRAIN, AND

THAT HEADACHE IS LEAVING YOU

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

BE HEALED; BE MADE WHOLE

NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED

WITH STOMACH CANCER.

HAVE YOU A SHARP PAIN FROM

TIME TO TIME, BUT IT IS THIS

GNAWING PAIN.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL A

WARMTH IN YOUR STOMACH, AND

IT IS GOING TO BE A GOOD

WARMTH, SO WONDERFUL, AS HE

HEALS YOU.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

REALLY SEVERE FIBROMYALGIA,

AND IN THE JAW OF YOUR FACE,

THIS PAIN IN YOUR JAW.

YOU JUST ROCK AND IT ACHES.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU AND

RELEASING THAT AND HEALING

IT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS A

PROBLEM IN THE MANDIBLE ON

YOUR RIGHT JAW, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

IT'S OUR HONOR TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

SO CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.
