Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 19, 2013 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

LAURA LYNN, HAVE YOU EVER FET

LIKE LIFE WAS MOVING ON A LITTLT

TO QUICKLY?

OH, ON MANY OCCASIONS, BRIAN.

I HAVE FELT LIKE THINGS WERE

SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL. I DIDT

KNOW WHY IT WAS GOING LEFT WHEN

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GOING RIGHT.

AND YES, THERE'S BEEN MANY

TIMES, YEAH.

UM-HUM, EXAMPLE?

OH AN EXAMPLE? OKAY. WOW

THIS FAST. OKAY LET ME THINK.

THERE WAS A SEASON, YOU KNOW

I FELT THAT GOD HAD CALLED ME TO

TELEVISION, AND A FEW YEARS AGO

I WAS FIRED FROM A POSITION IN

TELEVISION THAT I FELT I SHOULD

KEEP. I MEAN, IT DIDN'T MAKE ANY

SENSE. I FELT INJUSTICE WAS DON,

AND IT TOOK ABOUT TWO YEARS

FOR ME TO REALIZE THAT GOD

ACTUALLY--IT WAS A PROMOTION.

GOD HAD TO MOVE ME OUT OF THAT

POSITION SO THAT I COULD ACTUALY

END UP HERE TODAY AS IT IS, YEA.

I LOVE TO GET YOU TO TALK SOI

DON'T HAVE TO.

I KNOW.

ON TODAY'S SHOW YOU'LL SEE

TWO STORIES WHERE THINGS GOT A

LITTLE OUT OF CONTROL.

FOR TRIVIA GORDON, IT WASN'TA

SERIES OF BAD CHOICES, BUT AN

EMERGENCY C-SECTION THAT QUICKLY

SPIRALED INTO A FIGHT FOR HER L,

AND HER BABY'S. STAY TUNED FOR

THAT.

I DON'T REALLY MIND SHARING.

I LIKE DOING THAT TO.

I KNOW.

AND LATER, YOU'LL SEE WHAT

HAPPENED TO ONE FASHION

PHOTOGRAPHER WHEN HE GOT

SUCKED INTO THE DARK SIDE OF A

GLAMOROUS BUSINESS.

ALSO JOE AMARAL IS HERE WITH

ANOTHER FASCINATING LOOK AT HIDN

SECRETS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AS

PART OF HIS ONGOING SERIES.

BUT FIRST, TRIVIA GORDON'S

PREMATURE DELIVERY TURNS INTO A

FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL.

I WAS FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE. D

I WAS AFRAID. HOW COULD I GO FRM

FEELING WONDERFUL TO ALL OF A

SUDDEN HOLD ON, FIGHT FOR YOUR .

BE STRONG.

TRIVIA GORDON WAS PREGNANT WH

HER THIRD CHILD, A GIRL. BUT ALL

HER HOPES AND DREAMS FOR HER

UNBORN DAUGHTER TURNED TO FEAR

THIRTY-SEVEN WEEKS INTO HER

PREGNANCY.

THAT EVENING WE WERE WATCHING

TELEVISION. HAVING A WONDERFUL

TIME AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

EXPERIENCED A PAIN IN MY STOMACH

LIKE NEVER BEFORE. IT WAS LIKE

SOMEONE HAD TAKEN A KNIFE, AND

HAD STABBED ME IN MY STOMACH.

AND IT IMMEDIATELY CAUSED ME TO

DROP TO MY KNEES IN PAIN. MY SO,

HE RAN ACROSS THE STREET TO GETE

NEIGHBOR. AND THE NEIGHBOR CAME.

SHE FOUND ME ON THE FLOOR. I HAD

NEVER FELT PAIN LIKE THAT BEFOR.

TRIVIA WAS RUSHED TO A LOCAL

HOSPITAL WHERE DOCTOR'S

DIAGNOSED SEVERE TOXEMIA, AND

SEVERAL OTHER LIFE THREATENING

CONDITIONS.

HER BLOOD PRESSURES WERE STRE

LEVEL, AND SHE'S VERY CLOSE TO

DEATH. HER LIVER HEMATOMA WAS

EXTREMELY LARGE. IT COULD HAVE

RUPTURED AT ANY TIME. WHEN THEY

DO RUPTURE, THE MORTALITY FOR TT

EVENT IS EXTREMELY HIGH.

TRIVIA'S HUSBAND ROBERT WAS

RECALLED FROM MILITARY SERVICE N

IRAQ TO BE WITH HER.

I WAS ON A PLANE LEAVING WITN

HOURS. WHEN YOU HEAR SOMETHING

LIKE THAT THE FIRST THING YOU WO

DO IS YOU WANT TO PRAY.

TRIVIA'S LIVER AND KIDNEYS WE

SHUTTING DOWN. DOCTOR'S

PERFORMED AN EMERGENCY

C-SECTION AND SAVED TRIVIA'S BA,

BUT TRIVIA'S LIFE HUNG IN THE B.

AFTER TWO DAYS IN INTENSIVE CARE

WITH NO SIGNS OF IMPROVEMENT

SHE WAS LIFE FLIGHTED TO VANDERT

HOSPITAL IN NASHVILLE.

IT SEEMED AS IF THERE WAS A T

OF CHAOS IN THE ROOM. TRYING TOT

MY KIDNEY FUNCTIONS REVIVED AND

WORKING, AND MY LIVER FUNCTIONS

HAVE COMPLETELY FAILED. AND ALL

I COULD DO IS JUST LIE THERE AND

PRAY. I SAID, "GOD, HELP ME. I

DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON WITH

ME. I'VE NEVER BEEN SICK A DAY Y

LIFE. HOW DID I GO FROM FEELING

WONDERFUL TO THIS?"

TRIVIA WAS PLACED ON A DIALYS

MACHINE, AND SPENT SEVERAL MORE

DAYS IN THE HOSPITAL IN AND OUTF

CONSCIOUSNESS. FRIENDS, FAMILY

AND CHURCH MEMBERS GATHERED IN

PRAYER FOR HER SURVIVAL. TRIVIAS

SHE HAD VISIONS THAT DEATH WAS

WAITING ACROSS THE HALL.

PRAYER IS WHAT PREVENTED DEAH

FROM COMING OVER TO TAKE ME. AND

HE COULD NOT CROSS BECAUSE OF TS

WHITE LIGHT. HE SAID, "AS SOON S

THIS BEAM OR THIS TRAFFIC OF LIT

STOPS. I'M GOING TO COME ACROSS

THIS ROOM AND I'M GOING TO TAKE

YOU." AND I WAS SO FEARFUL. ANDI

JUST KEPT SAYING, "I DON'T WANTO

DIE. I DON'T WANT TO DIE."

WHEN I WALKED IN IT WAS A VEY

DESPERATE SITUATION. THE DOCTORS

HAD BASICALLY GIVEN UP ON HER.

THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED THAT, YOU

KNOW, THIS WAS A MAKE IT OR BREK

IT MOMENT FOR HER. AND WHEN I

APPROACHED HER BED, I JUST FELTE

THE LORD TOLD ME, JUST GO AHEAD

AND LAY HANDS ON HER. YOU DO WHT

YOU'RE CALLED TO DO, AND LET MEO

WHAT I'M HERE TO DO.

WHEN I ACTUALLY WOKE UP, ANDI

COULD REALLY SEE MY PASTOR WAS

STANDING THERE IN THE ER ROOM. I

WAS SO GLAD TO SEE HIM, AND HE S

PRAYING OVER ME. AND I JUST FELE

PEACE OF GOD. THAT GOD DIDN'T

FORGET ABOUT ME. AND I WAS STILL

FIGHTING FOR MY LIFE, BUT I THAK

GOD FOR THE PRAYERS.

TRIVIA SLOWLY BEGAN TO HEAL.R

DOCTORS TOLD HER SHE WAS FORTUNE

TO BE ALIVE CONSIDERING THE SEVY

OF HER CONDITION WHEN SHE ARRIV.

THEY SAID MANY WOMEN COME TO

THIS HOSPITAL IN THE CONDITION E

IN, AND WITHIN FIVE MINUTES OF G

IN THAT CONDITION, FIVE MINUTES,

THEY DIE RIGHT THERE ON THE TAB.

AND FOR YOU TO HAVE SURVIVED TH,

IT'S A MIRACLE. I THANK GOD FORT

BEING MY DOCTOR IN A SICK ROOM

AT THAT HOSPITAL. I DON'T KNOW

WHY HE ALLOWED ME TO LIVE, BUT

HE DID. AMEN.

AFTER TWO WEEKS IN THE HOSPIL

TRIVIA WAS SENT HOME FOR MONTHS

OF BED REST AND KIDNEY DIALYSIS.

I KNEW THAT I HAD TO FIGHT. I

KNEW OTHERS WERE PRAYING FOR ME,

BUT I HAD TO PRAY. I BEGAN TO RD

THE WORD OF GOD, AND TO STAND ON

HIS PROMISES. I READ EVERY SCRIE

ABOUT HEALING, AND I TOOK THAT .

HE SAYS BY HIS STRIPES I AM HEA.

I SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH THE WOD

OF GOD. I BECAME STRONG. GOD SA,

"LET THE WEAK SAY THAT I AM STR"

I BEGAN TO SAY, "GREATER IS HE S

IN ME THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WOR"

AND I FELT THE STRENGTH OF GOD .

TODAY TRIVIA IS HEALED AND H.

SHE SAYS IT WAS GOD WHO BROUGHT

HER THROUGH. HER DAUGHTER ROBYN

IS A PERFECTLY HEALTHY LITTLE G.

GOD HAS RESTORED MY ORGANS.

MY KIDNEY'S ARE RESTORED. MY LIR

FUNCTIONS. NO MORE HIGH BLOOD

PRESSURE, HYPERTENSION, NONE OF

THAT. I AM HEALED TODAY. I AM A

MIRACLE.

WHATEVER THE SITUATION IS, TT

IN GOD. AND BELIEVE IN GOD FOR .

BELIEVE GOD FOR IT. AND IT MAY T

HAPPEN ON THAT DAY WHEN YOU WANT

IT TO HAPPEN, BUT CONTINUE TO

BELIEVE GOD FOR IT, AND JUST TO

TRUST IN GOD. AND GOD WILL PULL

YOU THROUGH IT.

TRIVIA IS VERY STRONG IN HER,

AND I THINK THAT PLAYED A SIGNIT

ROLE IN HER HEALING. SHE HAD A O

LIVE FOR.

I WOULD NEVER BE ASHAMED TO L

WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR ME,

BECAUSE HE HAS SET ME FREE. I

SHOULD HAVE BEEN SIX FEET UNDER,

BUT NOW I'M TAKING THE GOSPEL OF

JESUS CHRIST, AND I'LL TELL IT

WHEREVER I CAN TELL IT. THAT GOD

IS GOOD.

I JUST LOVE SEEING HOW LIVESE

CHANGED BY THE POWER OF GOD.

HEY, WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO.

TODAY I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOA

VERY INTERESTING SUBJECT. GO WIH

THE FLOW. WHEN DIFFICULT TIMES

ARISE IT'S NOT TIME TO RETREAT,

WITHDRAW OR ESCAPE. WE HAVE A

BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVING, AND

MORE IMPORTANTLY SUCCEEDING IF

WE DON'T GIVE UP. HAVE YOU EVER

FELT LIKE YOU WERE EXPERIENCINGA

BEATING IN THE SPIRIT? AND WONDD

HOW TO GET YOUR BALANCE? WELL, I

FEEL YOU. I'VE LEARNED THAT DURG

THOSE SEASONS GOD IS STILL GOD,D

WHERE, WATCH THIS, THE FOCUS GOS

THE POWER FLOWS. THE HALF BROTHR

OF JESUS, JAMES. THEY CALLED HIE

CAMEL KNEES. IN THE FIRST CHAPTN

THE SECOND TO THE FOURTH VERSE ,

"CONSIDER IT PURE JOY." HAVE YOR

CONSIDERED THAT? BROTHERS,

WHENEVER YOU FACE TRIALS OF MANY

KINDS, BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT THE

TESTING OF YOUR FAITH DEVELOPS

PERSEVERANCE. PERSEVERANCE MUST

FINISH ITS WORK SO THAT YOU MAYE

ABLE TO BE MATURE AND COMPLETE.

NOT LACKING ANYTHING. NOW, JAMES

1:12 GOES ON TO SAY, BLESSED ISE

MAN. BLESSED IS THE WOMAN WHO

PERSEVERES UNDER TRIAL BECAUSE,

HAVING STOOD THE TEST, THEY WILL

RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE THAT D

HAS PROMISED TO THOSE WHO LOVE

HIM. NOW, THE WORD PERSEVERANCE

THAT JAMES, THE BROTHER OF JESUS

USES IN THIS PASSAGE IS MADE UPF

TWO GREEK WORDS. AND IT'S HUPO

MEANING UNDER, AND MONO MEANING

REMAIN. THAT MEANS TO PERSEVERE

IN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES. LITERALLY

MEANS THAT I STAY UNDER THAT

SITUATION, BUT I TRUST GOD TO BG

ME THROUGH. AND LEARN THE LESSON

THAT GOD'S TEACHING. NOW, IT'S T

TIME TO RECONSIDER YOUR OPTIONS,

AND IT'S NO TIME TO TURN BACK. D

NO TIME TO PRETEND THAT IT'S NOT

HAPPENING. I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT

JUST TRYING TO FAKE IT TILL YOUE

IT. REMEMBER THIS, WHERE THE

FOCUS GOES THE POWER FLOWS. LET

ME GIVE YOU SOME ABC'S TO HELP

YOU. WHAT DO YOU DO IF YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH THAT BEATING IN TE

SPIRIT? NUMBER ONE, REFOCUS. ITS

TIME FOR YOU TO CONSIDER IT PURE

JOY. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT

THAT? BROTHERS, SISTERS, WHENEVR

YOU FACE TRIALS OF ANY KINDS, BE

YOU KNOW THAT THE TESTING OF YOR

FAITH DEVELOPS PERSEVERANCE. LIN

TO WHAT JAMES IS TALKING ABOUT.E

SAID TO REFOCUS, IT MEANS THAT E

SHOULD CALMLY AND OBJECTIVELY

EVALUATE OUR SITUATION. MANY OF

THE PROMISES OF GOD, AND THE

BIBLE TALK ABOUT PRIORITIES. MAK

12:30 LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WIH

ALL YOUR HEART, MIND, SOUL AND

STRENGTH. MATTHEW 6:33 SEEK FIRT

THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS

RIOTOUSNESS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE

WILL BE IT. WHEN YOU READ THROUH

THE GOSPELS YOU'LL DISCOVER

COUNTLESS VERSES WITH SIMILAR T.

IF YOU'RE FACING A DIFFICULT SIN

BATTERED BY REOCCURRING PROBLEM.

WEIGHTED DOWN, AND ALMOST IN AN

IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION. ALLOW YOUR

PRIORITIES WITH GOD'S PRIORITIED

THEN WATCH HOW HE'S GOING TO BRG

YOU THROUGH. NOW, NUMBER TWO

YOU'VE GOT TO RENEW. JAMES 1:4 ,

PERSEVERANCE MUST FINISH ITS WOK

SO THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BE

MATURE, COMPLETE, NOT LACKING

ANYTHING. YOU KNOW, WE CAN'T

WIN THE BATTLE'S OF TODAY WITH E

CROWNS OF YESTERDAY. RENEWAL IS

CRITICAL. THE BIBLE TELLS US, DT

COPY THE BEHAVIOR OF THE CUSTOMS

OF THE WORLD, BUT LET GOD TRANSM

YOU INTO A NEW PERSON BY CHANGIG

THE WAY YOU THINK, THEN YOU'LL N

TO KNOW GOD'S WILL FOR YOUR LIF;

WHICH IS GOD'S PLEASING AND

PERFECT WILL. DO NOT CONFORM

TO THE PATTERN OF THIS WORLD, BE

TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF

YOUR MIND. REFOCUS , RENEW, AND

WATCH WHAT GOD'S GOING TO DO,

BECAUSE YOU WILL GO WITH THE FL,

AND THAT'S YOUR HOPE TO GO.

WHEN BRIAN WAS GIVING THAT

TEACHING I WAS THINKING ABOUT

HEBREWS 11. THIS IS CALLED THE

FAITH CHAPTER, BECAUSE IT IS FUF

THE AMAZING MEN AND WOMEN OF

GOD WHO WALKED IN FAITH. THEY HD

TO RECEIVE JOY AS A FRUIT OF TH.

NOT NECESSARILY BECAUSE THEY'RE

SITUATION WAS JOYFUL. HAVE YOU

EVER WALKED THROUGH A TRIAL, AND

YOU SAY THERE IS NOTHING JOYFUL

ABOUT THIS. I RECENTLY SAID TO

SOMEBODY, YOU KNOW. I DON'T

SEE IN THE BOOK OF JOB ANYWHERE

WHERE HE FELT JOY. HE FELT ANGSD

HE WAS UNHAPPY. AND HE WAS GOING

THROUGH SOMETHING THAT WAS

ROCKING HIS SOUL. BUT I CAN TELU

HE REMAINED FAITHFUL. AND IN THE

NEW TESTAMENT, WHEN IT SAYS

COUNT IT ALL JOY. SOMETIMES IT'S

NOT A FEELING. IT'S JUST A SOLID

TRUST THAT GOD IS GOING TO GET U

THOROUGH. IF YOU'RE FACING

SOMETHING TOUGH TODAY,

REMEMBER GOD IS BRINGING YOU

THROUGH. YOU'RE NOT AT THE END .

HE'S GOT SOMETHING GOOD FOR YOU.

UP NEXT, MORE HIDDEN SECRETS

FOUND IN THE BIBLE. THIS IS JOE

AMARAL.

TODAY I WANT TO CONTINUE

TALKING ABOUT AN ANCIENT JEWISH

WEDDING FEAST. I WANT TO POINT

OUT ANOTHER PERINEAL TO YOU THAI

HOPE IS GOING TO GIVE YOU ONE OF

THOSE HUGE WOW MOMENTS. THE

TEXT COMES FROM EPHESIANS CHAPTR

5:27 IT SAYS AND TO PRESENT HERO

HIMSELF AS A RADIANT CHURCH, WIT

STAIN OR WRINKLE OR ANY OTHER

BLEMISH, BUT HOLY AND BLAMELESS.

NOW, WHEN I READ THIS FOR THE FT

TIME I DIDN'T FULLY UNDERSTAND T

HE WAS TALKING ABOUT. HE SAYS TT

MESSIAH, THE GROOM IS COMING BAK

FOR A BRIDE THAT HAS NO WRINKLES

NO SPOT WHATSOEVER. WHAT IN THE

WORLD DOES THAT MEAN? NOW, I

TRAVEL A LOT FOR MY MINISTRY, AD

LET'S JUST SAY THAT MY CLOTHES T

ALWAYS THE MOST IRONED. A LOT OF

TIMES THERE'S WRINKLES BECAUSE F

THE LONG FLIGHTS. AND SO ACCORDO

WHAT IT SAYS HERE, DOES THAT MEN

I'M GOING TO GET LEFT BEHIND? WN

HE COMES BACK FOR HIS BRIDE IF I

DON'T HAVE MY CLOTHES WITHOUT

WRINKLE WILL I BE LEFT BEHIND? F

COURSE NOT. WE NEED TO UNDERSTAD

WHAT THAT MEANT IN THE CULTURE T

THE TIME. THERE WERE POCKETS THT

WERE SOWN IN TO THE WEDDING

OUTFITS IN THOSE DAYS, AND BASIY

IF YOU TOOK MATERIAL THAT YOU HD

ON YOUR SHIRT, AND YOU ROLLED IP

AND YOU SEWED THE BOTTOM OF IT,

IT WOULD CREATE KIND OF LIKE A T

ON THE DRESS. BUT FORM A DISTANF

YOU DIDN'T SEE THE SEWN MATERIAT

WOULD LIKE THERE WAS JUST A WRIE

ON THE DRESS. AND THEY HAD THESE

SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE

DRESS. AND AS THE BRIDE WOULD WK

UP AND DOWN THE AISLE AND WALK

THROUGH THE FESTIVAL, PEOPLE

WOULD PUT MONEY TO HELP PAY FOR

THE WEDDING IN THOSE POCKETS.

NOW, THAT MIGHT SOUND LIKE A VE,

VERY BIZARRE TRADITION. IN MY C,

IN THE PORTUGUESE CULTURE, WE HE

SOMETHING SIMILAR, BUT YET DIFF.

NOW YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT I

HAVE A SHOE HERE IN MY HAND. WHY

AM I HOLDING A SHOE? BECAUSE INY

CULTURE AT THE WEDDING, AT THE

CELEBRATION TIME, THE BRIDE AND

GROOM TAKE OFF THEIR SHOES AND E

PASS IT AROUND TO THE PEOPLE WHO

ARE THERE AT THE WEDDING, AND AS

THE SHOE GOES BY YOU PUT MONEY

INSIDE. AND THEN YOU TAKE THAT

MONEY AND THAT HELPS TO PAY FOR

THE WEDDING. SO WHAT IN THE

WORLD DOES THIS MEAN FOR US?

THINK ABOUT IT. JESUS SAID HE'S

COMING BACK FOR A BRIDE THAT

DOESN'T' NEED TO HAVE ANY WRINK.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? THERE NEEDS

TO BE NO POCKETS SOWN INTO HER

DRESS. NOBODY NEEDS TO PAY FOR .

SHE HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID. I KN,

I KNOW YOU'RE HAVING A WOW

MOMENT. THAT'S HOW MUCH THE

GROOM LOVES THE BRIDE. HE PAID E

PRICE. WHEN DID HE PAY THE PRIC?

LONG AGO ON THE TREE OF CALVARY.

AND NEXT TIME YOU READ THIS VER.

THE NEXT TIME THAT YOU LOOK AT E

SCRIPTURE, AND IT TALKS ABOUT HM

COMING BACK FOR A BRIDE WITHOUT

WRINKLE. IT MEANS THAT NOBODY EE

NEEDS TO PAY THE PRICE. THERE'S

NOTHING THAT WE CAN DO. NOTHING

THAT WE CAN EARN FOR OURSELVES.

BUT HE'S PAID THE PRICE. WE WERE

BOUGHT AT A PRICE THE BIBLE SAI,

BY THE BLOOD. THE PRECIOUS BLOOD

OF THE MESSIAH. SO WHEN HE

COMES BACK FRIENDS, LET'S MAKE

SURE WE'RE READY. BECAUSE HE HAS

PAID THE PRICE. A VERY HIGH PRI,

HIS LIFE.

THANK YOU JOE. THAT IS ALWAYS

MINISTRY CONTINUES TO GROW WE AE

1-855-759-0700. UP NEXT, DRUG

ADDICTION STEALS A TALENTED

PHOTOGRAPHERS' PASSION FOR LIFE.

SEE HOW HE GOT IT BACK.

I GRADUATED FROM ART COLLEGE,

AND I DECIDED TO GO TO NEW YORK

CITY, AND NEW YORK CITY WAS LIKE

THE PREMIER PLACE TO BE A

COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHER. THE

FIRST WEEK I ACTUALLY OPENED UP

THE DOORS TO THE STUDIO. I HAD

THREE NATIONAL AD CAMPAIGNS. ALL

OF A SUDDEN MY LOVE FOR PHOTOGRY

JUST GOT DROWNED BY ALL THIS WOI

WAS WORKING SO HARD AND LONG HOS

THAT I HAD NO SOCIAL LIFE. ONE F

MY CLASSMATES WAS A FASHION

PHOTOGRAPHER. HE NEEDED A

PLACE TO STAY, TO SLEEP, AND I T

HIM UP ON MY COUCH IN MY

APARTMENT. AND WE DECIDED TO

START GOING OUT TO NIGHT CLUBS.D

I REMEMBER THAT WAS THE FIRST TE

I DID COCAINE. THERE WAS THIS OE

TIME WE WERE INVITED BACK TO A

PENTHOUSE APARTMENT. AND I

REMEMBER THAT WAS THE FIRST NIGT

I TRIED FREEBASE, OR CRACK COCA.

AND I INSTANTLY, I MEAN, I INSTY

GOT ADDICTED TO IT. WHEN I DID

FREEBASE IT WAS LIKE A RUSH, AND

AFTER YOU'VE HAD THE FIRST RUSHU

CONSTANTLY WANTED ANOTHER, AND

ANOTHER, AND ANOTHER. I WAS

ENTANGLED, IT WAS AWFUL. AND I

COULDN'T GET OUT OF IT. I STARTD

PAWNING MY CAMERA EQUIPMENT. I

STARTED LYING, CHEATING, STEALIG

ANYTHING TO GET DRUGS. I STARTED

REALLY NOT SHOWING UP FOR JOBS.

MY AGENT STARTED TO NOTICE. IT T

SPREAD AROUND NEW YORK THAT I WS

A DRUG ADDICT. AN ACTIVE DRUG

ADDICT, AND MY WORK STARTED TO L

OFF. IT WAS BAD. YOU HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT POINT IN TIME I

HAD GIVEN UP ALL HOPE. I HAD GIN

UP ALL HOPE OF RECOVERY. I THOUT

I WAS GOING TO DIE AS A DRUG AD.

MY FAMILY HAD DISOWNED ME. THEY

HAD WRITTEN ME A LETTER SAYING,U

KNOW, YOU'RE NO LONGER OUR CHIL.

THE DRUG HAD SUCH CONTROL OVER .

EVEN I COULD NOT STOP. I WENT IO

BEDROOM TO SEE. YOU KNOW, I SAT

DOWN ON MY BED AND I PULLED OUT

THE MONEY OUT OF MY POCKETS TO

SEE HOW MUCH CRACK I COULD GO B,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I HEARD THE

DEMONIC VOICES. AND I LOOKED UP,

AND I LOOKED AT MY WALLS, AND I

SAW THE SATANIC SYMBOLS. AND I

WAS LIKE OH MY GOSH. AND I STARD

SHAKING UNCONTROLLABLE. I WAS SO

SCARED, AND I JUST SAID GOD, IF

YOU'RE REAL I NEED YOU NOW. I

REALLY NEED YOU NOW. GOD,

PLEASE SHOW ME THAT YOU'RE REAL.

AM I COMING? I'VE ALWAYS BELIEVD

IN YOU GOD. I'VE ALWAYS BELIEVED

IN YOU. AND THE NEXT THING THAT

HAPPENED WAS THIS INCREDIBLE

WARM PEACEFUL FEELING CAME OVER

ME. AND I CLOSED MY EYES, AND I

JUST PUT MY ARMS OUT TO MY SIDE.

AND IT WAS THE MOST WONDERFUL

FEELING I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFT

WAS THE HOLY SPIRIT TOUCHING ME.

AND I SAID, "GOD, YOU JUST PROVD

TO ME THAT YOU'RE REAL." BUT GO,

I'M A DRUG ADDICT. I HEAR THE LD

CLEAR AS DAY JUST SAY, BRAD, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO SAY NO TO DRUGS

ANYMORE. I'LL SAY NO FOR YOU. I

DIED FOR YOUR SINS. THAT WAS IT.

THE LORD CAME INTO MY LIFE. THE

NEXT DAY I WAS CLEAN. I DIDN'T O

DRUGS AGAIN. THE BIBLE SAYS THAL

YOU KNOW. RESTORE THE YEARS THAT

THE CANKER WORM ATE AWAY, AND HS

DONE THAT. AND HE'S REALLY RESTD

AND GIVEN ME A WONDERFUL LIFE. A

WONDERFUL WIFE AND TWO KIDS.

GOD CAN DO IT. IT MAY SEEM

IMPOSSIBLE. YOU MAY THINK THAT

YOU CAN NEVER, NEVER GET OUT OF

YOUR ADDICTION. THAT THERE IS NO

HOPE FOR YOU, BUT THERE IS. AND

IT'S THROUGH GOD. IT'S THROUGH

CHRIST JESUS. SO, AND HE IS ABLE

IS TOTALLY ABLE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT LIVES LIKE

BRAD'S, YOU SAY THANK GOD FOR

GRACE.

ABSOLUTELY. SO INSPIRING. WE

LOVE GIVING YOU HOPE EVERYDAY

THROUGH THESE STORIES LIKE BRAD.

THAT GOD LOVES YOU AND HE HAS AN

INCREDIBLE PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE. U

ENJOY THIS KIND OF PROGRAM, WE

NEED YOU TO LET US KNOW BY LINKG

YOUR FAITH WITH US TO SUPPORT TS

FINANCIALLY. IT DOESN'T TAKE A T

FROM EACH OF US TO REAP THE REWS

OF SEEING LIVES CHANGED, AND FAH

BUILT ACROSS CANADA. WE NEED

PEOPLE WITH CONVICTION TO STAND

UP AND SAY THEY WILL SUPPORT THS

MINISTRY SO THAT THOUSANDS OF

LIVES CAN BE IMPACTED. WHEN YOU

DO THIS, WE WILL SEND YOU THIS D

TEACHING OF GORDON ROBERTSON'S

OUR FATHER KEYS TO THE LORD'S PR

AS A THANK YOU FOR YOUR INVESTMT

WITH US. CALL US NOW.

AND YOUR PARTNERSHIP IS ALREY

MAKING A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE

LIVES OF CANADIANS. WE'RE

CONTINUING TO USE SUPER BOOK TO

REACH OUT TO YOUNG PEOPLE IN

SCHOOLS AND ON NATIVE RESERVES N

CANADA, AND ARE PLANNING MORE

OUTREACHES IN DIFFERENT CITIES D

TOWNS. YOU KNOW, WHEN I LOOK AT

BRAD'S LIFE AND HE SAID MY LOVER

PHOTOGRAPHY WAS BEING DROWNED

OUT BY MY DESIRE FOR COCAINE, AD

FOR CRACK. AND WHEN I SEE THAT,

ISN'T THAT IRONIC THAT THE THINT

YOU LOVE CAN BE ACTUALLY SUCKEDT

BY WHAT YOU LUST FOR. THE BIBLE

SAYS IN VERSE JOHN THAT THE SAME

SIN FROM THE BEGINNING IS WHAT E

BATTLE WITH TODAY. THE LUST OF E

EYES, THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THE

PRIDE OF LIFE. HE SAID, AM I GOO

DIE A DRUG ADDICT GOD? AND HE

COULD NOT STOP HIMSELF. I KNOW M

TALKING TO SOMEONE TODAY THAT YU

CAN'T STOP YOURSELF AS WELL. I T

KNOW IF IT'S OVER EATING. I DONT

KNOW IF IT'S GOSSIPING. IT DOEST

MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE, BECAUSE

SIN IS SIN, AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO

IS LOVE GOD MORE THAN YOU LOVE

YOUR SIN. LISTEN TO WHAT THE BIE

SAYS, IN JOEL, IT'S ONE OF THE D

TESTAMENT PROPHETS, AND HE TALKS

ABOUT A REVIVAL THAT'S GOING TO

COME IN THE LAST DAYS. AND I BEE

THIS IS THAT. THE BIBLE SAYS THD

I WILL RESTORE THE YEARS THAT TE

LOCUST HAS STOLEN. MY CHEWING

ARMY THAT I HAVE SENT. I BELIEVE

WHAT THAT MEANS IS GOD SAYS I'M

GOING TO RESTORE THE YEARS, THE

MONTHS, THE WEEKS, THE HOURS, TE

SECONDS. THE DEVIL WANTS TO STEL

YOUR TIME, BUT NOW IT'S TIME FOU

TO SAY, GOD, YOU'RE REAL LIKE B.

PLEASE SAVE ME. LET'S PRAY THAT

GOD WILL DO THAT. FATHER, I PRAN

THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS FOR

THAT PERSON. NOT TO JUST LEAD TM

IN A SINNERS PRAYER, BUT I PRAYR

THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO

TOUCH THEIR LIFE NOW, AND

IGNITE THAT FIRE OH GOD, WHERE

THEY COULD NOT GET LOOSE THEMSE.

LORD, I PRAY THAT THE FIRE THAT

REDEEMS WILL REMOVE THE FIRE THS

BEEN RAVAGING AND THEN NOW THROH

THESE TELEVISION AIRWAVES YOU

WOULD MOVE ACROSS THIS NATION, D

INTO THOSE HOMES. IN JESUS

NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER WITH BRIAN WOULD YOU CALL

US AT 1-855-759-0700. I JUST

SENSED BRIAN, WHILE YOU WERE

PRAYING THAT PRAYER THAT THERE S

SOMEBODY JUST BEEN GOING THROUGH

A HORRENDOUS TIME, AND YOU FEEL

THE LOSS OF HOPE. GOD IS HERE TO

RESTORE YOUR HOPE. AND WHEN THE
