TODAY, WE'RE HAPPY,

HAPPY, HAPPY, BECAUSE WE'VE

GOT AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

WITH "DUCK DYNASTY"'S SKY

ROBERTSON.

THERE IS NOT BUT ONE

MASTER-BLASTER, AND THAT

WOULD BE YOURS TRULY.

Wendy: PLUS, THE OASIS

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

DESERT.

WE DIDN'T HAVE WATER,

OKAY, WE DEVELOPED WATER

TECHNOLOGY.

JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS

BEEN ABLE TO SOMEHOW TURN A

CURSE INTO A BLESSING.

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WE'VE GOT AN

INCREDIBLE SERIES ON

ISRAEL.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY

HEART-WARMING.

AND YOU LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

WENDY IS HERE WITH US.

HOW YOU DOING?

Wendy: I'M DOING

GREAT.

IT IS AMAZING -- WE'RE GOING

TO TALK ABOUT ISRAEL LATER,

BUT WHAT THEY'VE DONE WITH

SO LITTLE IS A LESSON FOR

ALL OF US.

Pat: THEY'RE FULFILLING

BIBLE PROPHECY, AND YOU LIKE

TO SEE BIBLE PROPHECY

FULFILLED.

I'M NOT SURE WHETHER OUR

PRESIDENT IS FULFILLING

ANYTHING, BUT HE IS ON THE

WAY TO EUROPE NOW FOR THE

G-20 SUMMIT.

THE TOPIC WIL WON'T BE THE

WORLD ECONOMY; IT WILL BE

SYRIA.

Wendy: THE PRESIDENT IS

TRYING TO GAIN SUPPORT AT

HOME AND ABROAD FOR A STRIKE

ON SYRIA, BUT SYRIA IS ALSO

GETTING READY IN CASE THERE

IS AN ATTACK.

OUR GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

George: THE UNCERTAINTY

SURROUNDING SYRIA HANGS OVER

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S THREE-DAY

OVERSEAS TRIP.

IT STARTS OFF TODAY WITH A

STOP IN SWEDEN.

THEN ON TO THE G-20 SUMMIT

IN RUSSIA, WHERE TENSIONS

ARE HIGH.

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR

PUTIN HAS WARNED THE WEST

ABOUT TAKING MILITARY ACTION

AGAINST SYRIA.

IN AN INTERVIEW OVERNIGHT,

PUTIN WAS ASKED IF HE WOULD

AGREE TO MILITARY FORCE IN

SYRIA IF THE GOVERNMENT WAS

FOUND TO HAVE USED CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ON ITS CITIZENS.

Reporter: I DO NOT

EXCLUDE THIS, BUT I WOULD

LIKE TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION

TO ONE ABSOLUTELY KEY

THING.

IN LINE WITH INTERNATIONAL

LAW, ONLY THE U.N. SECURITY

COUNCIL CAN SANCTION THE USE

OF FORCE AGAINST A SOVEREIGN

STATE.

ANY OTHER METHOD WHICH MIGHT

BE USED TO JUSTIFY THE USE

OF FORCE AGAINST A SOVEREIGN

STATE IN INADMISSIBLE, AND

CAN ONLY BE INTERPRETED AS

AN AGGRESSION.

BARRELS PER DA AGGRESSION.

George: BUT THE SENATE

IS DRAFTING A RESOLUTION

THAT WOULD AUTHORIZE A

LIMITED U.S. STRIKE.

IT WOULD FORBID THE USE OF

GROUND TROOPS.

WE ALL AGREE THERE WILL

BE NO AMERICAN BOOTS ON THE

GROUND.

I BELIEVE THAT MY

COLLEAGUES SHOULD SUPPORT

THIS CALL FOR ACTION.

George: BUT WHILE

LEADERS IN CONGRESS ARE

GETTING ON BOARD, THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE STILL

SKEPTICAL.

WE SHOULD NOT GO TO WAR

WITH SYRIA.

WE SHOULD JUST MIND OUR OWN

BUSINESS.

George: ACCORDING TO A

POLL, 59% OF AMERICANS

OPPOSE A STRIKE IN SYRIA IF

THE U.S. GOES IT ALONE.

HOWEVER, 46% OF AMERICANS

FAVOR A STRIKE IF THE

AMERICAN ALLIES GET ON

BOARD.

VOTES IN THE HOUSE AND

SENATE IS EXPECTED NEXT

WEEK.

THE SYRIA REGIME IS ALSO

MOVING ITS TROOPS OUT OF

BASES AND INTO CIVILIAN

AREAS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, GEORGE.

I REPEAT THE WORDS OF THAT

GREAT GENERAL DOUGLAS

MCCARTHUR, QUOTE,"IN WAR,

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

VICTORY."

IF YOU DON'T PLAN TO WIN,

DON'T GO TO WAR.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PLAN TO

FINISH THE ACTION AND COME

OUT ALIVE, THEN DON'T DO

IT.

DON'T PLAY GAMES, POLITICAL

GAMES, WITH THE LIVES OF

PRECIOUS AMERICAN SERVICEMEN

AND WOMEN.

DON'T DO IT.

CAN WE AFFORD ANOTHER ONE OF

THESE THINGS OVER THERE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST?

WE THOUGHT WE HAD WON IN

IRAQ, AND WHAT DO WE DO?

WE TURNED IT OVER TO A

GOVERNMENT THAT IS NOT

EXACTLY IN CHARGE OF

ANYTHING.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE IRANIANS

MAY BE EXERTING INFLUENCE.

WE'RE MOVING INTO

AFGHANISTAN.

YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN BEING

KILLED AND MAIMED BY ALL

SORTS OF TERRORIST ATTACKS

IN AFGHANISTAN.

WHEN IT IS FINISHED, WHAT DO

WE WANT THERE?

WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO GET?

THEY CERTAINLY DON'T LOVE

US.

WE'VE GOT A CORRUPT

GOVERNMENT WE'RE BACKING.

WHO NEEDS IT?

WELL, HERE IS SOMETHING THAT

IS INTERESTING, IT'S A

SHOCKING ENDING TO THE STORY

OF THE MEN WHO KIDNAPPED

THOSE THREE WOMEN IN

CLEVELAND.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE CLEVELAND MAN CONVICTED

OF

HOLDING THREE WOMEN

CAPTIVE IN

HIS HOME FOR

A

DECADE HAS COMMITTED

SUICIDE.

53-YEAR-OLD ARIEL CASTRO WAS

FOUND HANGING IN HIS JAIL

CELL.

HE WAS SENTENCED TO LIFE IN

PRISON, PLUS 1,000 YEARS.

HE KIDNAPPED THE THREE AND

IMPRISONED THEM, SOMETIMES

RESTRAINED BY CHAINS.

HE PLEADED GUILTY TO 937

COUNTS, INCLUDING KIDNAPPING

AND RAPE.

OHIO CORRECTION OFFICIALS

SAY CASTRO WAS NOT UNDER

SUICIDE WATCH AND WAS BEING

HELD IN PROTECTIVE CUSTODY.

THE OWNER OF A FLOWER SHOP

IN WASHINGTON STATE IS BEING

SUED BECAUSE OF HER

CHRISTIAN BELIEFS.

SHE HAS OWNED ARLENE FLOWERS

FOR DECADES, BUT WHEN ASKED

TO SELL FLOWERS TO A

SAME-SEX COUPLE FOR THEIR

WEDDING, SHE DECLINED,

SAYING IT WAS BECAUSE OF HER

CHRISTIAN BELIEFS.

NOW SHE IS BEING TAKEN TO

COURT.

YOU HAVE TO MAKE A STAND

SOMEWHERE IN YOUR LIFE ON

WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND WHAT

YOU DON'T BELIEVE.

IT WAS JUST TIME I HAD TO

TAKE A STAND.

EVERYBODY WILL HAVE TO COME

TO THAT SAME TIME IN THEIR

BUSINESS.

Reporter: LAWYERS TELL

CBN NEWS THIS CASE COULD GO

ALL THE WAY TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

PROMISE KEEPER'S FOUNDER

BILL McCARTNEY IS HOPING

TO REVIVE THE DREAM OF

RACIAL UNITY IN DETROIT.

HE RECENTLY BROUGHT TOGETHER

PASTORS TO LEAD CHRISTIAN

MEN THERE TO BECOME WARRIORS

FOR THEIR WORLD AND THE

CITY.

Reporter: DETROIT IS

PICTURE-PERFECT FROM A

DISTANCE.

UP CLOSE, IT IS A PICTURE OF

URBAN DECAY.

HIGH POVERTY RATES, HIGH

CRIME RATES, AND HIGH

UNEMPLOYMENT ARE DRIVING

PEOPLE AWAY.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH

LONGER I CAN HANG ON.

Reporter: SERGEANT JOHN

BENNETT HAS PATROLLED THE

CITY STREETS FOR MORE THAN

16 YEARS.

WE'VE LOST, ON THE POLICE

DEPARTMENT, A THOUSAND

OFFICERS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN

REPLACED IN THE LAST FIVE TO

SIX YEARS.

Reporter: THE

MOTOR

CITY'S PROBLEMS ARE SIMPLY

BIGGER THAN POLICE AND

GOVERNMENT.

THAT'S WHY 50 AREA PASTORS

ARE COMING TOGETHER TO PRAY

AND TO PLAN, AND THEY'RE

BEING LED BY PROMISE

KEEPERS.

AN ORGANIZATION THAT UNITES

MEN TO FIGHT FOR THEIR

FAMILIES AND THEIR

COMMUNITY.

DR. REILLY WASHINGTON IS

PRESIDENT.

ONE OF THE SPIRITUAL

DIMENSIONS, THE PROBLEMS

THAT ARE FACING THE MOTOR

CITY?

NUMBER ONE, IT IS A

REVIVAL, A RENEWAL, AND A

REDISCOVERY OF THE WORD OF

GOD.

A LOT OF SOLID CHURCHES IN

DETROIT ARE DOING A GREAT

JOB, BUT IT NEEDS TO BE ON A

COMBINED BASIS.

> THAT'S WHY THE PASTORS

ARE COMING TOGETHER.

Reporter: IT INCLUDED A

MESSAGE FROM A FORMER MUSLIM

TERRORIST.

SALIM TOLD PASTORS RADICAL

ISLAM MADE A CONSCIOUS

EFFORT TO DIVIDE THIS CITY

AS EARLY AS THE 1960s.

I AM NOT PREACHING

AGAINST ISLAM.

I'M AM PREACHING FOR

CHRISTIANITY BECAUSE I

BELIEVE JESUS CHRIST IS THE

ONLY WAY, ONLY TRUTH, AND

ONLY LIFE.

WHEN I HEAR ISLAMICS, OR

ANYONE ELSE PREACHING

SOMETHING DIFFERENT, THAT

GOES AGAINST WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

Reporter:

DR. WASHINGTON SAYS IT IS

TIME FOR DETROIT CHRISTIANS

OF ALL BACKGROUNDS TO STAND

TOGETHER TO PULL THEIR CITY

FROM THE BRINK OF DISASTER.

HOW IMPORTANT IS RACIAL

RECONCILIATION IN SAVING

THIS CITY?

RACIAL RECONCILIATION IS

CRITICAL BECAUSE IT

UNDERGIRDS ONENESS.

Reporter: AND REILLY

BELIEVES STANDING ONE WITH

GOD IS ENOUGH TO BRING

REVIVAL TO THE MOTOR CITY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: A LAWSUIT TO

STRIKE THE WORDS "UNDER GOD"

FROM THE PLEDGE OF

ALLEGIANCE IS GOING BEFORE

THE MASSACHUSETTS SUPREME

COURT.

AN ATHEIST COUPLE SUED ON

BEHALF OF THREE CHILDREN.

THE AMERICAN HUMANIST

ASSOCIATION IS REPRESENTING

THE ATHEISTS.

IT SAYS THE WORDING OF THE

PLEDGE FAVORS ONE RELIGIOUS

CLASS OVER ANOTHER ONE,

THOSE WHO DON'T BELIEVE IN

GOD.

WELL, STRONG BURSTS OF

EXERCISE ARE ONE OF THE BEST

WAYS TO AVOID GAINING WEIGHT

IF YOU WORK HARD ENOUGH AT

IT.

A NEW STUDY FROM THE

UNIVERSITY OF UTAH SHOWS IT

IS MORE IMPORTANT TO WORK

OUT INTENSELY THAN TO WORK

OUT FOR LONGER PERIODS OF

TIME.

SHORT BOUTS OF BRISK

ACTIVITY CAN HELP KEEP THE

POUNDS OFF, SUCH AS RUNNING

AND OTHER EXERCISES, LIKE

PUSH-UPS, OR TAKING THE

STAIRS OR PARKING AT THE FAR

END OF THE LOT CAN ADD UP.

PAT, IT KIND OF MAKES YOU

WANT TO HIT THE GYM.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW THAT

IT MAKES ME WANT TO DO ANY

SUCH THING.

I DID BURSTS.

WHEN I WAS IN MY JOGGING

PERIOD, I WOULD RUN

SPRINTS.

THAT WAS THE WAY YOU DID

IT.

YOU, OF COURSE, WANT TO

CLIMB MOUNTAIN KIM

KILIMANJARO.

Wendy: I DO.

I THINK BECAUSE YOU'RE SORT

OF DOUBLE-DOG DARING ME.

Pat: I'M DOUBLE-DOG

DARING YOU.

19,000 -- THAT IS A LONG WAY

FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP.

Wendy: IT IS, BUT IT IS

ONE -- FOR BEING AS HIGH AS

IT IS, IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

CLIMBABLE.

MOM AND DAD, IF YOU'RE

WATCHING, I AM GOING TO

CLIMB KILIMANJARO.

Pat: DO YOU HAVE TO

TRAIN, AND GET IT SHAPE?

Wendy: THEY RECOMMEND A

FEW MONTHS, BUT YOU CAN DO

IT IN LESS.

THEY SAY IF YOU'RE IN GOOD

SHAPE -- THE SUMMIT IS THE

STEEP PESST PART, BUT IT IS

NOT UPHILL THE WHOLE TIME.

Pat: DO YOU TAKE

OXYGEN?

Wendy: YOU REALLY DON'T

NEED OXYGEN.

SOME OF THE TOUR COMPANIES

HAVE OXYGEN AVAILABLE FOR

SOME WHO NEED IT, BUT MOST

PEOPLE DON'T REALLY NEED

IT.

Pat: DO ME A FAVOR.

PLEASE DON'T DIE.

PROMPTPROMISE YOU'LL COME

BACK ALIVE.

Wendy: I PROMISE.

TODAY IN ISRAEL, WATER CAN

GO FROM THE OCEAN TO THE

FAUCET IN LESS THAN 90

MINUTES.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

ISRAEL HAS EXCELLED IN IS

TAKING WHAT SOME PEOPLE

WOULD SEE AS RISK FACTORS OR

CURSES AND TURNING THEM INTO

BLESSINGS.

Wendy: SEE HOW ISRAELIS

ARE CREATING STREAMS IN THE

DESERT RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: READ YOUR BIBLE,

IT IS TRUE.

THE BIBLE IS TRUE.

THE WORDS OF THE PROPHETS

ARE COMING ALIVE TODAY IN

MODERN-DAY ISRAEL.

THEY ARE.

FOR THE PAST 65 YEARS, ONE

OF ISRAEL'S BIGGEST

CHALLENGES HAS BEEN A

CHRONIC WATER SHORTAGE.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE STREAMS IN

THE DESERT?

WELL, THIS YEAR FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN MODERN

HISTORY, THE NATION'S WATER

AUTHORITY THAT DECLARED

ISRAEL WAS OFFICIALLY OVER

DROUGHT.

IN FACT, ISRAELIS MAY SOON

HAVE -- GET THIS -- A WATER

SURPLUS?

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

WELL, TAKE A LOOK AT THESE

AMAZING TECHNIQUES THAT HAVE

HELPED BOOST ISRAEL'S WATER

SUPPLY.

MORE THAN HALF OF THIS

COUNTRY'S LAND IS DESERT.

AND WE HAVE A SEVERE WATER

SHORTAGE.

LETTERS TO ISRAEL, A COUNTRY

THAT HAS NO OIL, NO WATER,

NOT TOO GOOD SOIL, AND WE

HAD TO MAKE THE BEST OUT OF

IT.

Gordon: THOUSANDS OF

YEARS AGO, MOSES HAD TO

STRIKE A ROCK TO GET WATER

IN THE DESERT.

WELL, TODAY ISRAELIS ARE

TAKING A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT

APPROACH, USING TECHNOLOGY

AND CREATIVITY.

IN ISRAEL, THE MAIN SOURCES

OF DRINKING WATER ARE THE

SEA OF GALILEE AND TWO

UNDERGROUND AQUAFERS.

AND IF RAINFALL IS SHORT, SO

IS THE NATION'S WATER

SUPPLY.

IN 1953, ISRAEL STARTED

BUILDING THE NATIONAL WATER

CARRIER, A SYSTEM OF

PIPELINES, CANALS, AND

RESERVOIRS THAT CARRY WATER

FROM THE SEA OF GALILEE TO

THE REST OF ISRAEL.

SO WE DIDN'T HAVE WATER.

OKAY, WE DEVELOPED WATER

TECHNOLOGY.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

ISRAEL HAS EXCELLED IN IS

TAKING WHAT SOME PEOPLE

WOULD SEE AS RISK FACTORS OR

AS CURSES, AND TURNING THEM

INTO BLESSINGS.

FROM THE TIME OF BELA, THE

JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE ALWAYS

BEEN ABLE TO SOMEHOW TURN A

CURSE INTO A BLESSING.

Gordon: THE PIPELINES

WERE A GOOD START, BUT

ISRAEL'S FRESH WATER SUPPLY

WASN'T ENOUGH TO SUPPORT A

GROWING COUNTRY.

SO ISRAELIS STARTED LOOKING

WEST, TO THE MEDITERRANEAN.

FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, THE

MEDITERRANEAN SEA WAS THE

CENTER OF THE ANCIENT WORLD,

THE CROSS-ROADS BETWEEN

EUROPE, ASIA, AND AFRICA.

AND NOW IT IS ONE OF

ISRAEL'S GREATEST NATURAL

RESOURCES.

ISRAEL IS DESALVATEING SO

MUCH OF ITS DRINKING WATER,

THE MAJORITY OF ITS WATERS

WILL BE THE MEDITERRANEAN

SEA BY THE END OF NEXT

YEAR.

Gordon: TODAY ISRAEL

PRODUCES 450 CUBIC METERS OF

DRINKING WATER ADAY.

THROUGH A PROCESS, WATER CAN

GO FROM THE OCEAN TO THE

FAUCET IN LESS THAN 90

MINUTES.

THE ISRAELI TECHNOLOGY IS

NOW USED IN MORE THAN 40

COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD.

AND THANKS TO THE

MEDITERRANEAN, ISRAEL MAY

SOON HAVE SOMETHING THAT WAS

ONCE UNTHINKABLE, A WATER

SURPLUS.

IN THIS COUNTRY, WE DON'T

HAVE MUCH WATER, EXCEPT

SOMEHOW, BY THE END OF THIS

DECADE, ISRAEL IS GOING TO

BECOME A NET WATER

EXPORTER.

JUST ON TODAY'S NEWS THERE

WAS AN ITEM OF ABOUT HOW

ISRAEL IS STEPPING UP THE

EXPORT OF WATER TO JORDAN,

IN ORDER TO SUPPLY WATER FOR

ALL OF THE SYRIAN REFUGEES

WHO ARE FLEEING INTO

JORDAN.

Gordon: WHILE ISRAEL

PRODUCES DRINKING WATER FROM

THE SEA, MANY FARMERS ARE

GETTING WATER FOR THEIR

CROPS LITERALLY OUT OF THIN

AIR.

ANCIENT ISRAELITES USED

STONES TO COLLECT THE DEW

EVERY MORNING.

NOW AN ISRAELI COMPANY IS

USING PLASTIC TRAYS TO DO

THE SAME.

THEY WERE CREATED BY TALIA

TECHNOLOGIES, WHICH MEAN'S

"GOD DUE."

ISRAELI FARMERS HAVE ALWAYS

MADE GOOD USE OF THEIR

WATER, BUT IT WASN'T LONG

BEFORE THEY REALIZED IN

ORDER TO SURVIVE, THEY ALSO

NEEDED TO START REUSING IT.

TODAY ISRAEL RECYCLES 80%

OF ITS WASTE WATER.

WE RECYCLE MORE THAN EIGHT

TIMES MORE WATER THAN ANY

OTHER COUNTRY ON THE

PLANET.

Gordon: ISRAELIS

DEVELOPED A WAY TO PURIFY

WASTE WATER, USING

ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT.

THIS TREATED WATER IS THEN

USED TO IRRIGATE CROPS.

IF YOU USE IT FOR

VEGETABLES, THEN YOU WOULD

LIKE TO CLEAN IT TO THE

EXTENT YOU CAN ALMOST DRINK

IT.

SO IT IS TREATED TO A VERY

HIGH DEGREE.

TODAY 60% OF THE WATER THAT

IS IRRIGATING FIELDS IN

ISRAEL IS PRODUCED WATER AND

NOT NATURE'S WATER.

I WILL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE

OF OUR FARM HERE ON THE

KIBBUTZ.

WE GROW JOJOBA, AND WE USE

THIS WATER.

Gordon: ISRAEL MAY BE

SHORT ON WATER, BUT THE

COUNTRY'S NEGAV IS SITTING

ON THE OCEAN FLOOR, BUT TWO

SALIVATED TO USE IT.

YOU CANNOT REALLY FIGHT

NATURE.

NATURE WILL FIGHT YOU BACK.

WE FOUND OUT OVER THE YEARS

IT IS BETTER TO COOPERATE

AND COORDINATE WITH WHAT YOU

GOT.

Reporter: HE IS ONE OF

A NUMBER OF ISRAELIS WHO

LEFT THE OCEAN TO GO FISHING

IN THE DESERT.

THEY BUILT FISH BARNS, USING

THE WARM, SALTY WATER FROM

UNDERGROUND.

IT IS IDEAL FOR RAISING

SALT-WATER FISH LIKE TALAPIA.

THE PLACE HERE IS WORKING

WITHOUT CHEMICALS, WITHOUT

ANYTHING.

IT IS VERY HEALTHY.

IT IS FRIENDLY FOR THE

ENVIRONMENT.

AND IT IS GOOD FOR US IN THE

MATTER OF THE POCKET.

WE ARE MAKING GOOD MONEY,

AND THIS IS AT THE BOTTOM

LINE.

Gordon: AT THIS KIBBUTZ

IN THE NEGAV DESERT, EVEN

THE FISH WATER IS BEING PUT

TO GOOD USE.

IT IS PUMPED UNDERGROUND TO

IRRIGATE THE OLIVE FIELDS.

AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE

SIDE, ALL OF THIS GROWING

AROUND THE FARM, AROUND THE

FISH, AND THEY ARE DOING

VERY WELL WITHOUT ANY OTHER

CHEMICALS.

ONLY BY THE NUTRIENTS OF THE

FISH.

Gordon: ISRAEL HAS

TAKEN THIS IDEA TO OTHER

COUNTRIES STRUGGLING WITH

WATER AND FOOD SHORTAGES.

WE'RE TAKING AFRICAN

VILLAGES AND TEACHING THEM

HOW TO ESSENTIALLY BUILD

FISH FARMS.

IF YOU LOOK AROUND LAKE

VICTORIA, THE ISRAELI

FARMERS ARE GOING IN AND

TEACHING THEM HOW TO GROW

THEM IN FARMS.

Gordon: OVER THE YEARS,

ISRAELIS FOUND NEW WAYS TO

USE LESS WATER, AND AS

ALWAYS, THEY STARTED IN THE

DESERT.

IT IS THE STORY OF THE

ARAVA.

SOMETIMES THERE ARE 20

20 MILLIMETERS OF RAIN

ANNUALLY, AND A VERY HARSH

CLIMATE, AND THANKS TO

IRRIGATION, THIS BECAME THE

VEGETABLE BARN OF ISRAEL.

65% OF VEGETABLE EXPORTS OUT

OF ISRAEL, MAINLY TO EUROPE,

IS COMING FROM HERE.

Gordon: TODAY, EVEN THE

DRIEST PARTS OF THE DESERT

ARE BLOOMING, WITH HELP FROM

A PROCESS CALLED DRIP

IRRIGATION.

THE IDEA IS OLDER THAN THE

STATE OF ISRAEL ITSELF.

WHEN THE FIRST SETTLERS

CAME HERE, YOUNG PEOPLE CAME

FROM THE CITY, AND THEY

WANTED TO BE FARMERS.

AND THEY CA CAME TO THE

KIBBUTZ, AND THEY FACED MANY

CHALLENGES.

ARID LAND, NOT ENOUGH

WATER.

AND THERE WAS EVEN A TIME

WHEN THEY CONSIDERED MOVING

TO ANOTHER PLACE.

BUT THEN BEN GOLIAN CAME,

WHO WAS A LEADER WITH A REAL

REGION, AND HE SAID, GUYS,

IF YOU WANT TO MOVE, IT'S

OKAY, BUT FURTHER SOUTH, NOT

BACK TO THE NORTH.

AND WE STAYED HERE AND WE

CONTINUED, AND MADE SOME

EXPERIMENTS, BUT STILL WE

WERE STRUGGLING.

THEN WE MET THE GUY WHO

INVENTED DRIP IRRIGATION.

Gordon: THAT GUY WAS AN

ENGINEER NAMED SIMKA BLAST.

HE GOT THE IDEA FOR DRIP

IRRIGATION AFTER SEEING A

TREE THAT WAS LARGER THAN

THE OTHERS AROUND IT.

AFTER DIGGING AROUND THE

ROOTS, HE FOUND IT WAS BEING

WATERED BY A LEAK IN AN

UNDERGROUND PIPE.

SO THIS GAVE HIM THE

IDEA, BUT IT TOOK HIM SOME

YEARS, ACTUALLY UNTIL

PLASTIC WAS INTRODUCED, TO

START AND MAKE EXPERIMENTS

WITH A DRIP PEPER THAT WILL

EMIT WATER IN SMALL DROPS.

AND THIS IS BASICALLY DRIP

IRRIGATION.

Reporter: BLASS MET THE

FARMERS OF THE KIBBUTZ, AND

TOGETHER THEY STARTED A

COMPANY CALLED NETAFINE,

WHICH MEANS DROPS OF WATER

IN HEBREW.

SOON THEY BOOSTED THEIR CROP

YIELD BY 50%, AND USED 40%

LESS WATER TO DO IT.

DRIP IRRIGATION SAVED A

LOT OF WATER.

PRODUCING MORE, GETTING

MORE, YET NOT HARMING THE

ENVIRONMENT.

Gordon: FOR ALMOST HALF

A CENTURY, THE COMPANY HAS

LIVED UP TO ITS SLOGAN "GROW

MORE WITH LESS," NOT JUST IN

ISRAEL, BUT IN 110 COUNTRIES

AROUND THE WORLD.

FROM SUGAR CANE FIELDS IN

THE PHILIPPINES, TO TEA

PLANTATIONS IN TANZANIA.

YOU KNOW, INDIA IS NOW

OUR NUMBER ONE COUNTRY.

THE RESULT, LOOKING AT THE

YIELD INCREASE, WAS

AMAZING.

50% OF THE FARMERS GOT AN

INCREASE IN YIELD, BETWEEN

25% AND 50%.

ANOTHER 25% OF THE FARMERS

GOT AN INCREASE IN YIELDS OF

UP TO 75%.

Reporter: THAN HE EVEN

DESIGNED A SYSTEM THAT WORKS

SOLELY ON GRAVITY, FOR

PLACES LIKE PERU, WHERE

REMOTE MOUNTAIN FARMERS

DON'T HAVE ELECTRICITY.

THE PLANT DOESN'T KNOW

THE DIFFERENCE.

THE PLANT DOESN'T KNOW THAT

YOU HAVE A $20,000 COMPUTER

BEHIND THE DRIPPER, AND IT

WORKS BEAUTIFULLY.

EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT

WATER SKILLS.

70% OF THE WATER THAT WE

HAVE AVAILABLE IN THE WORLD

IS USED FOR AGRICULTURE.

NOW, IF WE SAY ONLY 15% IN

AGRICULTURE, WE CAN MORE

THAN DOUBLE THE AVAILABLE

WATER FOR DRINKING AND

SANITATION.

IN HEBREW, WE HAVE TERM

CALLED "TU COON ALAN," WHICH

IS FIXING THE WORLD.

THIS IS WHAT IRRIGATION

DOES.

THIS IS MY PERSONAL GOAL AND

CHALLENGE.

Pat: SIMPLY FABULOUS,

AND OUR HATS ARE OFF TO OUR

ISRAELI FRIENDS.

Wendy: ISN'T THIS

AMAZING THEY NOT ONLY DID

THIS FOR THEMSELVES, BUT NOW

THEY'RE HELPING THE REST OF

THE WORLD.

SUCH A SMALL COUNTRY.

Pat: THAT'S WHAT GOD

SAID TO ABRAHAM.

WITH YOUR SEED, ALL OF THE

WORLD WILL BE BLESSED.

WE'RE BLESSED BY JESUS.

THERE IS MORE THAN JUST THE

SPIRITUAL.

THERE IS THE TECHNOLOGY.

OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS,

WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW

ISRAELI TECHNOLOGY HAS

HELPED THE WORLD.

AND THERE IS MORE ON

CBN.COM.

AND I MIGHT AD, THIS IS NOT

SPONSORED BY THE ISRAEL

DEPARTMENT OF TOURISM.

THIS IS DONE BY CBN BECAUSE

WE LIKE TO SHOW WHAT IS

BEING INNOVATED AROUND OUR

WORLD.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

AMERICA'S FAVORITE UNCLE,

"DUCK DYNASTY"'S SKY

ROBERTSON.

I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR.

AND WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU

GET, OKAY?

Wendy: STAY TUNED FOR

MORE HILARIOUS "SKYOLOGY."

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Wendy: SKY ROBERTSON

MAY BE THE BIGGEST BREAKOUT

STAR OF THE HIT SHOW "DUCK

DYNASTY", AND NOW HE IS

REVEALING MORE ABOUT HIS

LIFE IN A NEW BOOK CALLED

"SKYOLOGY."

WE TALK TO AMERICA'S

FAVORITE UNCLE.

Reporter: WITH SKY

ROBERTSON, ONE THING IS

CLEAR --

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU

GET, OKAY?

*

Reporter: WHEN "DUCK

DYNASTY" BEGAN, UNCLE SKY

WAS ONLY SLATED TO APPEAR

OCCASIONALLY, BUT THAT SOON

CHANGED.

THERE IS BUT ONE

MASTER-BLASTER, AND THAT BE

YOURS TRULY.

Reporter: AT 65 YEARS

OLD, HE FINALLY HAS

DISCOVERED HIS GIFT, MAKING

PEOPLE LAUGH.

I LOOK IN THE MIRROR

EVERY MORNING, AND WHAT IS

GOING ON HERE.

I SAY, LOOK, IT IS SHEAR IN

SANITY INSANITY.

Reporter: MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS LOVE WHAT THEY

SEE.

AND NOW THEY CAN LEARN MORE

FROM HIS BOOK.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE STORIES

IN THE BOOK IS YOU TELLING

ABOUT THE TIME YOUR SHOES

CAUGHT ON FIRE.

THESE STORIES ARE 95%

STREW,

TRUE, WHICH IS TRUE,

AND THE 5% I THROW IN TO

MAKE THE STORY BETTER OR

SPICE IT UP, SO TO SPEAK.

OKAY?

LOOK, AND THE STORY ABOUT

THE SHOES AND

ALL OF

THAT IS

TRUE, OKAY?

BUT 5%, AND I'LL LIVE THAT

UP TO THE 5% IS THAT IS NOT

TRUE.

Reporter: HE IS SO

LOVED BY HIS FANS, HE OFTEN

GETS MARRIAGE PROPOSALS FROM

WOMEN WHO THINK HE IS

SINGLE.

HEARTS ARE GOING TO BE

BREAKING WHEN THEY READ THIS

BOOK, AND THEY LEARN YOU

HAVE A WIFE OF 43 YEARS, TWO

BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, AND

EIGHT GRANDCHILDREN.

YUP.

AND THOSE TWO BEAUTIFUL

CHILDREN, ACCORDING TO THE

DOCTORS, ARE WHAT WE CALL

MIRACLE BABIES, SINCE SHE IS

NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO

HAVE KIDS.

Reporter: HIS WIFE,

CHRISTINE, KNEW SHE COULDN'T

HAVE CHILDREN, AND AT FIRST

RESISTED HIS MARRIAGE

PROPOSALS.

SHE SAID, YOU'RE NOT

LISTENING.

I'VE HAD NUMEROUS DOCTORS

TELLING ME I CANNOT HAVE

DOCTORS.

I SAID, LOOK, DOCTORS ARE

FINE WHEN YOU NEED THEM, BUT

THEY DON'T HAVE ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

AND I SAID, I KNOW SOMEBODY

THAT DOES HAVE ALL OF THE

ANSWERS.

AND IT IS NOT THAT I PROVED

THE DOCTORS WRONG, OKAY?

IT JUST STRENGTHENS ME IN MY

FAITH AND WHAT I BELIEVE,

OKAY.

Reporter: IN HIS BOOK,

SKY THANKS HIS PARENTS FOR

INTRODUCING HIM TO JESUS

CHRIST.

THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE, WHEN

HIS FAMILY FACED SITUATIONS

THAT SEEMED HOPELESS, HE

SAID GOD ALWAYS PROVIDED.

IN THE LAST CHAPTER OF YOUR

BOOK, YOU OUTLINE

SPECIFICALLY WHAT YOU

BELIEVE AND WHY YOU BELIEVE

IT.

WHY WAS IT IMPORTANT FOR YOU

TO PUT THAT -- ALL THAT

DETAIL ABOUT YOUR CHRISTIAN

FAITH?

WELL, WE GET, JUST DAILY,

OKAY, SOMEONE CALLS AND

SAYS, WELL, HEY, WOULD Y'ALL

PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR MY

HUSBAND OR MY BROTHER, OKAY,

THAT HAS CANCER.

HE IS DYING.

AND I'LL LOOK AT THAT AND I

SAID, WELL, WHAT DO PEOPLE

DO, OKAY, THAT DON'T HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WHEN

THEY GET SOME NEWS

LIKE

THAT?

Reporter: ON THE SHOW,

WE HEAR YOU TELL A LOT OF

FUNNY STORIES ABOUT YOUR

TIME IN VIETNAM.

BUT IN THE BOOK YOU ALSO

TALK ABOUT BEING SCARED TO

DEATH TO GO.

YUP.

Reporter: AND WHILE YOU

WERE THERE, DRINKING HEAVILY

JUST SO YOU COULD FORGET

WHERE YOU WERE.

WELL, MOST PEOPLE,

OKAY -- UNLESS YOU'VE GOT

A

FAMILY MEMBER OR A RELATIVE

OR ARE SOME WAY CONNECTED TO

THE MILITARY, THE GENERAL

PUBLIC HASN'T

GOT A CLUE,

OKAY, OF WHAT THE MEN AND

WOMEN THAT SERVE GO THROUGH,

OKAY.

AND THEN, OKAY, NOT ONLY

THAT, OKAY, BUT THEIR

FAMILIES.

VETS ARE CLOSE TO MY HEART.

AND IT'S NOT ONLY BECAUSE I

SERVED, OKAY.

IT IS BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY

GO THROUGH, OKAY.

A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE

GAVE THEIR LIVES, A LOT OF

THEM HAVE GAVE THEIR LIMBS,

OKAY.

YOU KNOW, THAT'S A HEAP.

THAT'S LIKE THE SON OF GOD,

WHO GAVE HIMSELF FOR US ALL,

OKAY.

THAT'S A GREAT SACRIFICE,

OKAY.

GIVING UP LIFE AND LIMB,

JUST FOR YOUR FREEDOM AND MY

FREEDOM.

THEY'VE GOT A SPECIAL SPOT

IN MY HEART.

AND I THINK THEY'VE ACTUALLY

GOT A SPECIAL SPOT IN GOD'S

HEART.

Reporter: IS

THAT

TUPPERWARE GLASS YOU CARRY

AROUND THE ONE YOUR MOTHER

SENT YOU --

THAT'S THE ONE FROM

VIETNAM.

Reporter: IT LOOKS LIKE

BRAND NEW.

THAT WAS THE OLD ONE.

THEY MADE THEM BETTER NOW.

YOU ONLY GOT THAT BY

INVITATION ONLY, OKAY.

Reporter: NOW THAT HE

IS RICH AND FAMOUS, HE SAYS

HE DOESN'T FEEL A BIT

DIFFERENT.

HE

IS STILL HAPPIEST AT HOME

WITH HIS WIFE OR ON THE

ROBERTSON HUNTING

LAND

WITH

HIS BROTHER, PHIL.

YOU'VE GOT THE LOVE OF

GOD, YOU'VE GOT THE LOVE OF

FAMILY, WHAT ELSE DO YOU

NEED?

Reporter: WHY DO YOU

THINK "DUCK DYNASTY" IS SO

AMAZINGLY POPULAR?

WE

ARE

THE RAGS-TO-RICHES

STORY,

THE ROBERTSONS ARE.

WE HAD VERY HUMBLE

BEGINNINGS.

EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHAT IS BEHIND

IT.

AND ALL

OF THE BE ROBERTSONS

SAY IT IS

DIVINE

INTERVENTION.

GOD IS GOING TO TAKE "DUCK

DYNASTY" WHERE HE WANTS IT

TO GO, AND TO THE PEOPLE HE

WANTS IT TO GO

TO.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

CITY IS THRIVING.

NEGOTIATORS IN MIDDLE EAST

PEACE TALKS ARE DISCUSSING

DIVIDING THE CITY BETWEEN

ISRAELIS AND THE

PALESTINIANS.

BARKOT SAYS THE CITY HAS

ALWAYS BEEN AT ITS BEST WHEN

IT ALLOWED EVERYONE WHO CAME

TO WORSHIP TO FEEL A SENSE

OF BELONGING.

THE FIRE BURNING AROUND

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK IS

80% CONTAINED.

LINES AROUND THE BLAZE.

EVACUATION ORDERS HAVE BEEN

LIFTED FOR SEVERAL NEARBY

THE FIRE.

IT BURNED NEARLY 370 SQUARE

MILES AND DESTROYED 111

STRUCTURES, MAKING IT THE

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELL, BEFORE WE

KICK OFF TODAY'S "BRING IT

ON," WE WANT TO SHARE A

RESPONSE WITH YOU FROM A

VIEWER NAMED VIC.

AND PAT ANSWERED VICK'S

"BRING IT ON" QUESTION ON

AUGUST 23rd, AND THIS IS

VIC'S RESPONSE.

HE SAYS, I ASKED FOR ADVICE

ABOUT MY IMPENDING

BROADCAST.

MR. ROBERT SON ANSWERED MY

POSTED QUESTION.

TO ME IT WAS VERY SERIES TO

ASK.

WHAT MR. ROBERTSON AND THE

CO-HOST SAID WAS FROM THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

SOME OF YOUR WORDS, PAT,

SPOKE OF THINGS HE SAYS HE

HAS NOT

SHARED, NOR HAVE I

SHARED WITH ANYONE EXCEPT

GOD.

PAT'S INSIGHT AND WISDOM

FREED ME FROM ANXIETY, WORRY

AND FAILURE.

PLUS MUCH MORE.

I APPRECIATE PAT TAKING THE

TIME TO COUNSEL ME.

I STILL HOPE

SHE WILL TURN

AROUND.

Pat: I APPRECIATE

THAT.

WE GET BEAT UP BECAUSE THIS

IS THE THING THE ENEMIES CAN

JUMP ON.

BUT WE TRY TO HELP PEOPLE.

THAT WAS A DEEP-SEATED

QUESTION, AND THANK GOD I

HELPED HIM.

AMEN.

Wendy: TARA WRITES,

NIGHT HOW DO YOU KNOW IF GOD

IS TALKING TO YOU.

I PRAYED AND PRAYED, BUT HE

SAYS NOTHING TO ME."

Pat: TARA, I HAVE A

BOOK IN MY HAND, THE HOLY

BIBLE.

THIS IS GOD'S WORD TO YOU.

AND IF YOU WILL READ IT, HE

WILL SPEAK TO YOU OUT OF THE

WORD.

THERE ARE MESSAGES IN

PROVERBS.

THERE ARE MESSAGES IN THE

PSALMS.

THERE ARE MESSAGES IN THE

NEW TESTAMENT.

READ THE BIBLE AND PONDER ON

WHAT IT SAYS.

OUT OF THAT, GOD WILL BEGIN

TO SPEAK.

HE SPEAKS MANY DIFFERENT

WAYS.

I WROTE A BOOK ONE TIME

CALLED "HOW TO KNOW THE WILL

OF GOD."

HE SPEAKS THE INNER VOICE OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

HE SPEAKS THROUGH

CIRCUMSTANCES AND VISIONS

AND DREAMS AND SO FORTH.

YOU SAY, GOD DIDN'T TALK TO

ME.

READ THE BIBLE.

THAT'S HIS WORD.

AND THEN FROM THERE WATCH

WHAT HAPPENS.

Wendy: NANCY

WRITES, "PLEASE KEEP ME IN

PRAYER.

I'M READY TO WALK AWAY FROM

ALL I KNOW AND GO BACK TO

THE WORLD.

I'VE BEEN ASKING GOD FOR A

TANGIBLE BLESSING, BUT

NOTHING CHANGES.

I HAVE A BIG NEED, BUT GOD

HAS NOT MOVED.

WHY HASN'T GOD SHOWED UP FOR

ME."

NANCY WANTS TO KNOW.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS YOU

ASK, AND YOU ASK A MYTH

MISS.

WHY DON'T YOU START THANKING

GOD.

WE USED TO HAVE A LITTLE

SONG IN SUNDAY SCHOOL, COUNT

YOUR MANY BLESSINGS, NAME

THEM ONE BY ONE.

NAME THEM ONE BY ONE.

YOU'VE GOT LIFE, YOU LIVE IN

A LAND OF FREEDOM, AND BEGIN

PRAISING GOD OUT OF THAT.

AND OUT OF THAT PRAISE COMES

THE PRAISES OF GOD.

GOD IN HABIT INHABITS OUR

PRAISE.

SO AS WE PRAISE AND WORSHIP

HIM, ALL OF A SUDDEN THESE

THINGS WILL COME TO PASS.

Wendy: STEVEN

WRITES, "TODAY WE HAVE 66

CANONIZED BOOKS.

SADLY YOU HAVE BOOKS FROM

THE APOCRAFA, WHICH WAS A

STAPLE OF THE EARLY CHURCH.

EVEENOCH WAS VALIDATED IN

THE BOOKS.

WHERE DOES THE SCRIPTURE

GIVE CONSTANTINE THE

AUTHORITY TO REMOVE SOME OF

THE BOOKS?"

Pat: CONSTANTINE DIDN'T

DO IT.

HE WAS AN EMPEROR, AND HE

CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY.

THEY HAD IN 325 WHAT THEY

CALL THE COUNCIL OF NICIA,

WHERE THEY WROTE THE NICENE

CREED.

CONSTANT TIN DIDN'INE

DIDN'T DO THAT, BUT THE OLD

TESTAMENT CANON WAS

ESTABLISHED BY THE JEWISH

RABBIS.

YOU SEE A BOOK THAT WAS PUT

TOGETHER BY 70 SCHOLARS IN

ALEXANDER, EGYPT.

THAT HAD THE OLD TESTAMENT

CANON, AND THE HEBREW WAS

ALL FIXED BY THE RABBIS.

NOW, YOU GET TO THE NEW

TESTAMENT, AND THE NEW

TESTAMENT WAS COMPRISED

PRIMARILY OF THE WRITINGS

THAT HAD THE SEAL OF THE

APOSTLES, THE APOSTOLIC

SEAL.

NOW, THERE WAS A GREAT

SCHOLAR NAMED ATHANACOUS WHO

USED THE TERM CANON, AND HE

CITED THE 27 BOOKS.

BUT IT WAS ST. AUGUSTINE,

AND HE WAS BISHOP OF HIPPO,

AND THEN HAD ACKNOWLEDGED

THESE BOOKS.

BUT IT WAS ABOUT THREE YEARS

LATER, THEY HAD THE COUNCIL

OF CARNTHY, AND THAT'S WHERE

IT CAME FROM.

THEY DID NOT FEEL THAT THIS

BORE THE SEAL OF THE

APOSTLES, AND FROM

ATHANACIOUS ON, BUT BY 150,

ALL OF THESE BOOKS WERE

SET.

YOU HAVE THE GOSPELS AND

THEN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN AND

THE BOOK OF ACTS AND THE

LETTERS OF THE APOSTLES AND

REVELATION, ALL ADDED

TOGETHER, AND THAT'S WHEN WE

GOT OUR BIBLE.

Wendy: WILLIAM WRITES,

"I'M A BORN-AGAIN

CHRISTIAN.

I'M 70 YEARS OLD, AND I WAS

BORN AGAIN THREE YEARS AGO.

SHOULD I PRAY TO GOD, JESUS,

OR BOTH?

I HAVE NOT GOTTEN THE

TRINITY STRAIGHT IN MY HEAD,

SO IF I PRAY TO EITHER, AM I

NOT PRAYING TO GOD?"

Pat: WE PRAY TO GOD THE

FATHER, IN THE NAME OF --

WHICH IS LIKE THE POWER OF

ATTORNEY -- IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, IN THE POWER OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

SO WE'RE IN THE SPIRIT,

PRAYING TO THE FATHER IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT.

Wendy: THAT'S WHY WE

SAY "IN THE NAME OF JESUS."

CARLOS WRITES, "WHILE IN

LINE TO ORDER FOOD AT A

LOCAL K.F.C. TACO BELL, I

NOTICED A SIGN SAYING THEY

FOLLOWED HALAL FOOD

PREPARATION.

MY UNDERSTANDING IS IT

INVOKES THE HALAL IN ITS

PREPPING.

MY FRIENDS THINK I'M BEING

OVERZEALOUS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: YOU ARE BEING

OVERZEALOUS.

YOU'VE GOT MEAT OFFERED TO

IDOLS, EAT IT.

IF YOU'RE HOST SAYS IT IS

OFFERED TO IDOLS, THEN DON'T

EAT IT.

I WOULDN'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

IF THE MEAT IS ANY GOOD.

IF IT IS NOT ANY GOOD, THEN

DON'T EAT IT.

Wendy: SAY A BLESSING

BEFORE YOU EAT IT.

Pat: WHEN I WAS IN

LATIN-AMERICA, WE HAD A

RADIO STATION IN BOGOTA, WE

PRAYED EVERY DAY, AND DON'T

LET THE FOOD HURT US.

EVERYBODY GOT SICK.

Wendy: EVERYBODY STILL

GOT SICK?

A LITTLE BIT?

Pat: DON'T WORRY ABOUT

STUFF LIKE THAT.

WE'RE FREE.

WE'RE FREE IN THE LORD, AND

I THINK WE NEED TO TAKE OUR

FREEDOM AND WALK IN

LIBERTY.

Wendy: PAULINE WRITES,

"DO YOU HAVE TO PRAY ALOUD

FOR YOUR PRAYERS TO BE

ANSWERED?"

Pat: NO.

DEEP CALLS TO DEEP.

YOU PRAY IN THE SPIRIT.

YOU CAN PRAY ALOUD OR YOU

CAN PRAY SILENTLY.

YOU CAN PRAY WITH YOUR EYES

CLOSED, YOU CAN PRAY

KNEELING OR STANDING.

GOD IS INTERESTED IN YOUR

HEART.

THEY WHO WORSHIP HIM MUST

WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND IN

TRUTH.

GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU

FOR ALL OF THOSE QUESTIONS.

Wendy: THANK YOU, SIR.

WELL, ROSH HASHANAH BEGINS

THIS EVENING AT SUNDOWN, THE

JEWISH NEW YEAR.

AND UP NEXT, PAUL WILBUR

HELPS US USHER IN THIS NEW

YEAR.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Wendy: WELL, YOU'RE IN

FOR A TREAT.

Wendy: AWESOME.

PAUL, IT IS SO GREAT TO SEE

YOU AGAIN.

WELCOME BACK.

IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK.

Wendy: I HAVE BEEN

BLASTING YOUR C.D., "YOUR

GREAT NAME," FOR DAYS.

YOU KNOW WHEN YOU BUY

C.D.s YOU HAVE ONE

FAVORITE SONG, AND I KEEP

FINDING NEW FAVORITE SONGS.

WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION

BEHIND THE C.D.?

ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO --

WE'RE ALWAYS PRAYING FOR A

VISION, ALL OF OUR PROJECTS,

AND CBN HAS BEEN WITH US ON

SEVERAL IN ISRAEL.

AND THE LORD SPOKE A VERY

CLEAR WORD ONE DAY.

AND HE SAID IF YOU HAVE A

NEED, I HAVE A NAME.

CALL ON THE NAME OF THE

LORD.

SO IF YOU NEED HEALING, HIS

NAME IS JESUS, OF COURSE,

BUT I AM THE LORD WHO HEALS

YOU.

YOU IF YOU NEED PROVISION,

HIS NAME IS ALSHADID.

Wendy: YOU'VE DONE A

LOT OF LIVE PROJECTS, BUT

THIS IS YOUR FIRST STUDIO

PROJECT IN 20 YEARS.

UH-HUH.

Wendy: WHAT HAVE YOU

BEEN DOING?

WE'VE BEEN TRAVELLING OUR

BRAINS OUT.

AND MOST OF OUR PROJECTS ARE

LIVE.

AND WE'VE DONE MANY OF THEM

LIVE IN THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

SO THE BUDGETS HAVE BEEN

HUGE.

TERRY WAS WITH US, I THINK,

IN 1995 WHEN WE DID SHALOM

JERUSALEM THAT COST

$800,000.

SO WITH BUDGET RESTRAINTS

AND THE NEW ECONOMY, THIS

ONE WAS ABOUT LESS THAN A

10th OF THAT.

Wendy: THAT'S GOOD.

YEAH.

AND WE DID A LOT IN THE

STUDIO, AND IT IS A

WONDERFUL ENVIRONMENT.

Wendy: IT IS SO GOOD.

I'M JUST IN

LOVE WITH

IT.

MOST PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW YOU,

PAUL, KNOW YOU'RE A

MESSIANIC JEW.

WHEN DID YOU BECOME A

BELIEVE IN USHUA?

IN 1977.

I MET A BAPTIST WHILE I WAS

GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL TO BE A

CANTOR AND AN OPERA SINGER,

LIKE SOME OF MY IDOLS, IF

YOU WILL, FROM BACK IN THOSE

DAYS.

AND HE TOOK ME ON A FISHING

TRIP, AND SO NOT KNOWING THE

BIBLE, I GOT INTO A FISHING

BOAT WITH A BAPTIST, AND

THAT WAS THE LAST --

Wendy: GOD HAD YOUR

NUMBER.

HE HAD A HOOK IN MY JAW,

AS THEY SAY.

Wendy: TONIGHT IS THE

CELEBRATION OF ROSH

HASHANAH.

IT IS ALWAYS SPECTACULAR.

WHY SHOULD CHRISTIANS

CELEBRATE THIS?

WELL, THAT'S A GOOD

QUESTION.

I'M JUST FINISHING A BOOK

CALLED "THE CALENDAR OF THE

KINGDOM," WHICH IS A BOOK TO

ENCOURAGE THE CHURCH TO

REEMBRACE THESE -- IN THE
