Gordon Robertson concludes his Made in Israel series with a look at many of the things we use every day that had their start in Israel. Plus, best-selling author Max Lucado shares insights on how to turn to God for hope in life's difficult times. Read Transcript


THE TECHNOLOGIES TODAY TO

THE

ONES OF TOMORROW.

WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE PIKE

IS GOING TO BE MORE INTENSE.

HOW THE ISRAELS ARE THE

INNOVATORS OF THE WORLD.

THEY'RE THE KIND OF PEOPLE

YOU WANT TO HIRE.

PLUS A HEART STOPS BUT NOT

THE PRAYERS.

IF THIS IS WHEN IT'S GOING

TO

HAPPEN THIS IS WHEN IT'S GOING

TO HAPPEN.

SEVEN DAYS CONTINUE.

HE HAS A PULSE.

ON TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB".

WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

TO THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB". DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU

WITH US AND WE HOPE IT'S GOING

TO BE A GLORIOUS WEEK FOR YOU.

YES, IT WAS A GOOD WEEKEND

OTHER THAN MY TEAM FELL APART.

YOUR TEAM?

MY TEAM. THE PACKERS.

OH THE PACKERS. OH I'M

SORRY.

IT WAS CLOSE THOUGH.

THERE IS NO JOY IN MUDVILLE.

YOU KNOW WHEN IT'S CLOSE.

WELL, THAT'S TOO BAD. IF

YOU'RE FRIENDS OF THE

UNIVERSITY

OF VIRGINIA THEY GOT CREAMED BY

OREGON AND EARLIER VIRGINIA

TECH

GOT BEAT BY ALABAMA.

SO WE CAN BOTH WEEP.

I DIDN'T GO TO EITHER ONE OF

THEM. YALE DOESN'T HAVE A

VESAGE OF A DISEEGHT FOOTBALL

TEAM SO I DON'T WORTH ABOUT

THEM. OKAY WANT SECRETARY OF

STATE JOHN KERRY SAYS SYRIA CAN

PREVENT AN ATTACK AND GET THIS.

ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS TURN

OVER

THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN A WEEK.

AND NO ONE EXPECTS THAT TO

HAPPEN AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS WORKING HARD

WITH CONGRESS TO PREVENT A

STRIKE.

U.S. MILITARY ASSETS STAND

READY TO ATTACK IN SYRIA BUT

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS A LOT OF

WORK TO DO BACK HOME BEFORE

THAT

CAN HAPPEN. SENATE APPROVAL

SEEMS WITHIN REACH BUT IT'S AN

UPHILL BATTLE.

THIS ADMINISTRATION WON'T

EVEN ACT WHEN AMERICANS ARE

KILLED IN

BENGHAZI AND TO ME THEY HAVE IT

BACKWARDS.

THEY HAVE NO VIABLE PLAN FOR

SUCCESS.

I WOULD WISH IF THEY LAID IT

OUT BETTER AND IISH THE

PRESIDENT WOULD STOP BACKING

AWAY FROM HIS OWN RED LINE.

AND THIS WEEK A FULL

CAMPAIGN. THE PRESIDENT IS

GOING TO SPEAK TO THE NETWORKS

TONIGHT AND A PRIME TIME

ADDRESS

TO THE NATION AND PRESIDENT

OBAMA MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO GIVE

THE INFORMATION THEY'RE LOOKING

FOR AND THE UN SAID THERE IS

NOT

ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO PROVE SYRIA

IS BEHIND THE ATTACK. IT

PROVES

THAT ASSAD IS RESPONSIBLE.

SO THE QUESTION THIS WEEK IS

A VERY SIMPLE ONE. SHOULD

THERE

BE CONSEQUENCES FOR HIM USES

GASES, CHEMICAL WEAPONS TO KILL

MORE THAN A THOUSAND PEOPLE

INCLUDING MORE THAN 400

CHILDREN? THE ANSWER TO THE

QUESTION WILL BE FOLLOWED

CLOSELY IN TERRAN AND DEMAS CUS

AND BY OTHER GROUPS.

SYRIAN PRESIDENT ASSAD IS

PRYING TO GET THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE TO HEAR HIS MESSAGE. HE

SPOKE WITH PBS HOST CHARLIE

ROSE. CHARLENE

ISRAEL CBN NEWS.

THANK YOU CHARLENE. THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE

OVERWHELMING

AGAINST THIS MILITARY ACTION.

THE BRITS BACKED OUT. THE

FRENCH MAYBE. WHO HAVE WE GOT

IN THIS COALITION? WE DON'T

HAVE ANYBODY. IF WE KNEW WHAT

WE WERE GOING TO DO IT MIGHT BE

DIFFERENT BUT DROP BOMBS INTO

THE AREA AND KILL PEOPLE AND

NEWS FOOTAGE OF PEOPLE DYING

BECAUSE OF AMERICAN CRUISE

MISSILE STRIKES. THEY'RE NOT

DISCRETE THINGS YOU CAN LIMIT

THE DAMAGE. THEY WILL SAY THEY

WILL GO AFTER THE AIR FORCE BUT

THEY DISPERSED THE AIRPLANES.

OBAMA HAS GIVEN ASSAD AMPLE

NOTICE AND ANYTHING OF VALUE

THEY MOVED AND THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS AND ANYTHING THEY CAN

DO

SO THEY HAVE CIVILIAN SHIELDS

IN

FRONT OF THESE THINGS SO WE'RE

GOING TO SHOOT UP A BUNCH OF

SYRIAN CIVILIANS AND IT'S GOING

TO BE A PR NIGHTMARE AND NOT TO

MENTION OTHER THINGS THAT WILL

COME FROM IT AND THE REBELS ARE

GOING AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN

SYRIA SO WE WANT TO HELP THEM?

THE ANSWER IS NO. JOHN HAS

THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

THAT'S RIGHT PAT. SYRIAN

REBELS HAVE TAKEN OVER

CHRISTIAN

VILLAGES CAPTURED IT OVER THE

WEEKEND AND HOME TO TWO OF THE

OLDEST MONASTERIES IN THE

COUNTRY AND ISLAMIC REBELS

BURNED CHURCHES AND HOMES AND

FORCING HUNDREDS TO FLEE AND

CHRISTIANS FEARING MORE ATTACKS

IF THEY TAKE OVER SYRIA. HERE

AT HOME SOME BELIEVE THAT THE

U.S. SHOULD GIVE SUPPORT TO THE

OPPOSITION IN SYRIA AND JOHN

KERRY HAS SPOKEN TO THE

MODERATES NOT EVERYONE AGREES.

WE HAVE THAT STORY FROM

JERUSALEM.

DURING SECRETARY OF STATE

'S TESTIMONY

SHE SAID THEY'RE BECOMING MORE

MODERATE.

I WOULD SAY THAT TESTIMONY

DOESN'T REFLECT WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN NORTHERN SYRIA

WHICH I PERSONALLY VISITED.

HE FEELS THAT ASSESSMENT IS

NOT ONLY MISLEADING BUT

POTENTIALLY DRJ.

I THINK IT'S DANGEROUS IN

THE

SENSE IT'S CREATING A ROSY AND

FALSE PICTURE ON THE GROUND IN

THE REBEL CONTROLLED PART OF

THE

COUNTRY.

HE SAYS THE PICTURE INSIDE

THE REBEL GROUPS IS NOT A

PRETTY

ONE.

SOME OF THE GROUPS ARE VERY

EXTREME AND DANGEROUS FOR

REPORTERS TO GO IN. I AM

ACQUAINTED WITH ONE REPORTER

BEING HELD IN THOSE REBEL

CONTROLLED AREAS SO IT'S A

DANGEROUS PLACE FULL OF

CRIMINAL

ELEMENTS AND NOT A SENSE OF

DEMOCRAT IN IF SOMEONE IS

TRYING

TO SELL THAT YEAR.

THERE ARE SEVERAL GROUPS AND

ONE IS AL-QAEDA.

AND THEN THERE IS THE

LIBERATION FRONT AND THESE

PEOPLE ARE DESCRIBED AS THE

MODERATES AND WHO SECRETARY

KERRY ARE TALKING ABOUT AND I

SPENT TIME WITH ONE OF THE

GROUPS AND THE BRIGADE THERE

AND

I WOULD NOT DESCRIBE THEM AS

MODERATE. I WOULD SAY THEY'RE

FROM A MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TYPE

OUTFIT AND DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE

CONNECTED TO THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD BUT THAT KIND OF

POLITICS AND MORSI DOWN HERE

AND

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN EGYPT

AND I WOULD QUESTION THE

DESCRIPTION OF WHAT WE HEAR

THAT

THEY'RE MODERATES AND THEY'RE

AL-QAEDAISTS.

AND THEY THINK THERE ARE

MODERATES THEY CAN TRUST. CBN

NEWS JERUSALEM.

THE CRISIS IN SYRIA HAVE

SOME

PEOPLE LOOKING TO THE END TIMES

AND SOME POINT TO DAMASCUS AND

ONE SAYS DAMASCUS WILL NO

LONGER

BE A CITY BUT A HEAP OF RUINS

AND TODAY SOME BOOK STORES SAY

THERE IS INCREASE TO THESE

KINDS

OF BOOKS BUT OTHERS SAY THEY

DON'T SEE A CONNECTION ABOUT

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SYRIA AND

THE PREDICTIONS OF THE END OF

THE WORLD. SUPREME COURT

JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA WAS

ASKED

WHICH IS BETTER SOCIALISM OR

CAPITALISM? AND HE SAID ONE IS

MORE CHRISTIAN THAN THE OTHER

DESPITE TAKING THE POSITION ON

HO. PAT, AGREE OR DISAGREE?

I AGREE AND HE'S A CHARMING

MAN AND INTELLIGENT AND HE'S

RIGHT AND YOU DON'T HAVE

CAPITALISM WITHOUT ALL OF THE

SAFEGUARDS, THE IDEA THAT

BEFORE

GOD YOU'RE ABLE TO FULFILL YOUR

DESTINY AND IT'S THAT ETHIC

THAT

LIFTED PEOPLE OUT OF SLAVERY

AND

POVERTY AND HE'S RIGHT AND

MR. SALEAH IS A DEDICATED

CATHOLIC AND A GOOD MAN BUT

TERRY THIS SMOKE SCREEN ONCE

THEY TALK ABOUT MODERATE

ISLAMISTS. THERE IS NO SUCH

THING. THEY JUST DON'T EXIST

AND I THINK THE GOVERNMENT

SHOULD JUST CHILL OUT.

CAN THEY DO THAT NOW AFTER

MAKING THAT STATEMENT?

WELL, IT WOULD BE BETTER

THAN

COMMITTING THIS NATION TO A

RUINOUS WAR. WE ARE NEARLY

BANKRUPT AND WE CAN'T AFFORD IT

AND WHY SHOULD WE TRY? IT

MAKES

ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE. A FEW

YEARS AGO I HAD THE PRIVILEGE

OF

INTERVIEWING A GENTLEMAN ON

THIS

PROGRAM AND READ HIS BOOK. THE

BOOK WAS CALLED "SADISAM'S BOMB

MAKER" AND HE WAS IN CHARGE OF

THE NUCLEAR PROGRAM IN IRAQ AND

HE SAID IN THE BOOK AND HE TOLD

US HERE ON THIS PROGRAM SAD AM

CANNOT MAKE THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

AND DOESN'T HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY

TO DO IT AND CAN'T GET THE

NUCLEAR WEAPON. THAT WAS THE

MAN IN CHARGE OF IT SO WHAT DO

WE HEAR FROM WASHINGTON? WELL,

SAD AM HAS WEAPONS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION AND THEY'RE

BRINGING

YELLOW CAKE IN AND YELLOW CAKE

AND WE HAVE TO GET AFTER HIM.

TURNS OUT HE HAD NO YELLOW CAKE

OR NUCLEAR BOMBS AND THEY

COULDN'T FIND THE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS. IT WAS JUST A SMOKE

SCREEN TO GO TO WAR. THAT COST

US A TRILLION DOLLARS. IT WAS

HIDEOUS. WE CAN'T DO THAT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, LET'S NOT

GO TO WAR. WE DON'T WANT TO.

IT MAKES NO SENSE. PLEASE

WRITE

YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND TELL HIM

TO

GET OFF THIS WAR THING. IT'S

JUST NOT GOOD FOR THIS NATION.

LET'S BE STRONG AND IF WE HAVE

TO GO AFTER SOME VICIOUS

DICTATOR -- IF WE WENT AFTER

HITLER WE WOULDN'T HAVE HAD THE

LIVES LOST BUT WE DIDN'T DO

THAT

BUT WE DON'T HAVE THAT

SITUATION

NOW. ANYWAY THAT'S MY CONSENSUS

.

IT'S INTERESTING AND WHEN

YOU

DRAW LINES IN THE SAND LIKE

HAVE

BEEN DRAWN --

I MEAN ARE WE GOING TO

JEOPARDIZE THE FISCAL SOCIETY

OF

THIS NATION TO MAKE ONE GUY LO

THE PRESIDENT AND IT'S

EASY TO SAY I AM MISTAKEN AND

LET'S GET ON WITH LIVE.

ESPECIALLY IF WE HIT

CIVILIANS.

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE OUT

THERE. IT'S GOING TO BE A

BLOODY MESS. ALL RIGHT.

UP NEXT HEAR WHY ISRAEL HAS

BEEN CALLED THE FUTURE OF THE

TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS AFTER THIS.

COMING UP LATER THE MAN

READERS DIGEST DUBBED THE BEST

IN AMERICA. MAX LUCADO

SCBROINS US FORS "THE 700 CLUB"

.

WELL, THE BIBLE HAVE

PROPHECIES ABOUT THE DESERT

BLOOMING LIKE A ROSE AND ISRAEL

AND THOSE ARE COMING TRUE AND

ISRAEL IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF NEW

JERSEY BUT HAS THE LARGEST

NUMBER OF START UP COMPANIES

PER

CAPITA IN THE ENTIRE WORLD AND

MORE COMPANIES ON THE NASDAQ

EXCHANGE THAN ALL OF EUROPE SO

WHAT'S THE SECRET TO THEIR HI

TECH SUCCESS? WE ASKED SOME OF

THE TOP BUSINESS LEADERS AND

HERE'S WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY.

ON APRIL 15, 2013 2 BOMBS

EXPLODED DURING THE BOSTON

MARATHON KILLING THREE PEOPLE

AND INJURING 264 OTHERS. FOR

THE NEXT THREE DAYS

INVESTIGATORS REPORTEDLY USED A

HIGH-TECH SYSTEM CALLED BRIEF

CAM TO ANALYZE VIDEO. HOURS OF

VIDEO ARE CONDENSED INTO

MINUTES

AND EXPERTS CAN ZOOM IN ON

SUSPICIOUS ACTIONS LIKE A

BACKPACK LEFT BEHIND. THIS WAS

INSTRUMENTAL IN IDENTIFYING THE

TWO BOMBERS AND THE TECHNOLOGY

WAS MADE IN ISRAEL.

TECHNOLOGY IS GOING TO

CHANGE

ALL OF OUR LIVES. IT ALREADY

HAS AND WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE

PIKE IS GOING TO BE MORE

INTENSE.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN CALLED OFTEN

THE START UP NATION AND WHILE

JERUSALEM MAYBE THE SPIRITUAL

PART OF THE NATION TELE EVE IS

THE START UP SUCCESS. THIS

CITY

WAS LITTLE MORE AN A SERIES OF

SAND DUNES AND TODAY IT'S THE

SECOND HIGH-TECH CENTER IN THE

WORLD JUST AFTER SILICON VALLEY.

ISRAEL WAS RANKED THE MOST

INNOVATIVE AND MANY IDEAS CAME

FROM INVENTORS RIGHT HERE IN

ISRAEL.

FLIP TOP CELL PHONES, KEY

BOARDS FOR SMART

PHONES AND CHIPS AND FLASH

DRIVES AND THE OS THAT RUNS THE

AMAZON KINDLE AND THE SONNY

PLAY

STATION AND THE 3D CENSOR IN

THE

X BOX CONNECT. EVERY YEAR

AMERICAN COMPANIES ARE SHELLING

OUT MORE AND MORE MONEY TO

START

UP ISRAEL START UPS. THE

LATEST

EXAMPLE IS WAVE, AN APP THAT

GIVES LIVE TRAFFIC REPORTS

BASED

ON YOUR LOCATION AND WARNS YOU

ABOUT TRAFFIC JAMS AND

ACCIDENTS

AND EVEN SITTING POLICE CARS

AND

IT MADE HEADLINES BY HAVING

L.A.

DRIVERS NAVIGATE THE AREA.

GOOGLE BOUGHT THE PROGRAM FOR

UNDER $2 BILLION AND MAKING IT

THE MOST EXPENSIVE.

WE NEED TO BUILD BIGGER

COMPANIES, NOT JUST SELL THEM

EARLY TO AMERICAN

MULTI-NATIONALS BUT GET THEM

BIGGER INTO THE SALES PROCESS

AND CREATE MORE JOBS BOTH HERE

AND IN AMERICA AND AROUND THE

WORLD.

SO WHAT GIVES ISRAEL ITS

TECHNOLOGICAL EDGE.

. WE ASKED SOME OF THE

BUSINESS LEADERS AND THE ANSWER

IS THERE IS NO SINGLE ANSWER.

HOOZ PAIS THE POST DEFINITIVE

JEWISH WORD AND DARING AND THIS

ABILITY TO TRY TO DO SOMETHING

THAT NOBODY ELSE HAS DONE

BEFORE, TO SAY SOMETHING THAT

IS

A LITTLE OUT OF PLACE, TO BE IN

SOMEONE'S FACE. THAT ALLOWS US

TO BREAK THE BOUNDARIES AND THE

RULES AND GO OUT OF THE COMFORT

ZONE IN ORDER TO CREATE NEW

THINGS.

THERE IS I JOKE WHAT IS A

JEWISH ANSWER? IT'S A

QUESTION.

IN OTHER WORDS, JEWS WILL

ANSWER

A QUESTION WITH A QUESTION.

THAT CULTURE OF CHALLENGING,

DEBATING AND ARGUING IT'S VERY

WELL IN ISRAEL. IT'S HEALTHY

AND YOU GET TO ANSWER ANSWERS

AND RESULTS AND I THINK THAT IS

KEY ATTRIBUTE IN ISRAEL'S

ECONOMIC SUCCESS STORY, IN ITS

ECONOMIC MIRACLE.

OUR ROOTS, OUR EDUCATION IS

MAYBE IT COMING FROM THE TALMUD

IS ALWAYS BEING SKEPTICAL IN

ANSWERING QUESTIONS, AND I

BELIEVE THIS TRADITION, THIS

CULTURE, IT'S A PART OF OUR DNA

AND WHATEVER MOTH, YOU CHOOSE

IT. THAT'S A BIG WAY HOW WE

LEARN AND TEACH OUR KIDS. IF

YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A SINGLE

GROUP BASICALLY TO MAKE YOUR

IDEAL POOL OF ENTREPRENEURS YOU

COULDN'T LOOK FOR A BETTER POOL

THAN IMMIGRANTS. IMMIGRANTS

MAKE GREAT ENTREPRENEURS BUT

THEY DID IT IN THEIR OWN LIVE

AND THE CEO OF THEIR OWN LIFE

AND MOVED TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY

AND HAD TO HANDLE LEGAL AND

FACILITIES AND HR TO GET JOBS

AND BANKING AND MARKETING AND

THEY BASICALLY HAD TO SCALE UP

INNOVATION. AS A DIRECT

CORRELATION TO DIVERSITY AND

YOU

ALL THINK ALIKE AND ACT ALIKE

AND I'M SORRY IT'S NOT GOING TO

BE A PARTICULARLY CREATIVE

PLACE.

IN JEWISH LIFE THERE IS

ALWAYS ADVOCATED THINGS. YOU

HAVE TO LEARN AND VENTURE IF

YOU

WANT TO SUCCEED. ALWAYS SAID

[INAUDIBLE] IS THE JEWISH

MOTHER AND ASK THE SON AND

AFTER WHAT WE DID IT'S NOT TOO

MUCH.

HE IS KNOWN AS THE GODFATHER

OF ISRAEL'S HIGH-TECH INDUSTRY

AND INVESTED IN MANY START UPS

AND INCLUDING A COMPANY BY HIS

SON.

HIM AND HIS FRIENDS AND I

GAVE THE MONEY AND DIDN'T HAVE

IDEA OF WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO

DO BUT STILL I GAVE THEM THE

MONEY. THEY CREATED THESE

UNBELIEVABLE PRODUCT AND THE

REST IS HISTORY AS THEY SAY.

THAT UNBELIEVABLE PRODUCT

WAS

ICQ, THE WORLDLIEST'S FIRST

INSTANT MESSAGE SERVICE AND

AMERICA ONLINE BOUGHT THE

COMPANY FOR $400 MILLION.

THE DNA OF SUCCESS. YOU

HAVE

TO UNDERSTAND IF YOU VENTURE

YOU

CAN'T DO JUST SUCCESSES AND IF

YOU'RE INVOLVED IN AN AREA AND

ONLY SUCCESSES YOU'RE NOT

TAKING

RISK SO FAILURE COMES WITH THE

TERRITORY.

FAILURE IS NOT A FOUR LETTER

WORD. IT'S PART OF THE

PROCESS.

NOT EVERY TEAM WINS EVERY GAME

BUT YOU HAVE TO TRY AND IF YOU

FAIL YOU LEARN FROM YOUR

MISTAKES AND PICK YOURSELF UP

AND DO IT AGAIN.

ARE THE FAILURE RATES LOWER

IN ISRAEL THAN THE REST OF THE

WORLD?

THEY'RE NOT. ISRAEL DOESN'T

FAIL ANY LESS. THE DIFFERENCE

IS THEY KEEP TRYING.

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND IF

YOU'RE PRESENTING A CHOICE IN

INVESTING IN TWO ENTREPRENEURS

AND ONE THAT NEVER TRIED IT AND

ONE HAS TRIED AND FAIL AND

ALWAYS TAKE THE GUY THAT TRIED

AND FAILED AND YOUR STATISTICAL

ODDS ARE BETTER WITH THAT

PERSON.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR THE

NEXT GENERATION OF HIGH-TECH

STORIES IN ISRAEL YOU WON'T

FIND

THEM IN BUSINESS SCHOOL. IN

MOST JOB INTERVIEWS THE

QUESTION

ISN'T WHERE YOU WENT TO COLLEGE

BUT WHERE DID YOU SERVE IN THE

MILITARY.

WHEN I GET A RESUME THE

FIRST

THING I LOOK AT IS WHAT DID

THIS

KID DO IN THE ARMY? I LOOK AT

THAT AND NOT THE UNIVERSITY

BECAUSE THAT WILL TELL ME A LOT

ABOUT WHO THAT PERSON IS.

IN ISRAEL ALMOST EVERY

PERSON

SERVES IN THE MILITARY AND PUT

THROUGH THIS TRAINING AND HOW

TO

LEAD, HOW TO MANAGE, MAKE

DIFFICULT DECISIONS WITH LITTLE

ASSISTANCE AND E ENORMOUS

PRESSURE AND THIS LAUNCHES THEM

INTO BEING ENTREPRENEURS AND

RUN

START UPS.

WE GIVE THE CHANCE FOR EVERY

SOLDIER TO EXPRESS HIMSELF AND

TO SAY WHAT WE REALLY BELIEVES

WITHOUT PUNISHING HIM BECAUSE

HIS RANK IS A LOWER RANK, SO I

HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT SOMETIMES

LISTENING TO THESE OFFICERS --

THEY BRING UP A LOT OF STUPID

IDEAS IN MY VIEW, 40, 50, 60%

BUT 20, 30, 40% ARE WONDERFUL

IDEAS.

ONCE THEY'RE OUT OF THE

ARMY

SOLDIERS TAKE THE SAME SKILLS

AND USE THEM TO MAKE LIFE SAFER

FOR CIVILIANS. ISRAELIS HAVE

DEVELOPED EVERYTHING FROM BOMB

SNIFFING MICE TO SOFTWARE TO

PREVENT THEFTS AND OTHER

PROGRAMS. MANY PROGRAMS ARE

FUNDED BY ALUMNI BY 8200, A

HIGHLY SECRETIVE GROUP THAT

SPECIALIZES IN

WARFARE AND BELIEVED TO BE

BEHIND PROGRAMS THAT WERE

WORKING AGAINST IRAN.

AND IN MY COMPANY MANY FROM

FROM THIS UNIT.

HE WAS THE COMMANDER FOR

UNIT

8200 FOR YEARS AND WHEN HE

RETIRED FROM THE ARMY HE USED

THAT EXPERIENCE TO HELP DESIGN

A

SECURITY SYSTEM KNOWN AS SAFE

RIDE. A VIRTUAL DOOR MAN THAT

USES VOICE AND FACIAL

RECOGNITION TO PROTECT OFFICES.

ISRAELIS ARE PROUD TO US MANY

OF

THE IDEAS FROM THE ARMY, AN

IDEA

THAT COULD BENEFIT AMERICAN

COMPANIES.

AMERICAN COMPANIES HAS A LOT

TO LEARN ON HOW TO INTEGRATE

THE

PEOPLE COMING OUT OF THE ARMY.

IT HAS TO BE PART OF

EVERYONE'S CULTURE AND

CERTAINLY

THE HEROES COMING BACK FROM

IRAQ

AND AFGHANISTAN THEY NEED TO BE

THE FIRST GUYS THAT GET THE JOB

BECAUSE THEY HAVE TAKEN

LEADERSHIP AND LEAD AND THEY'RE

THE KIND OF PEOPLE YOU WANT TO

HIRE.

FANTASTIC AND GORDON I HOPE

THE ISRAELI TOURISM OFFICE

WOULD

LIKE TO ACQUIRE THIS.

IT'S PHENOMENAL.

AND VERY FLATTERING TO

ISRAEL

AND THEY HAVE GOT IT AND

DESERVE

THE CREDIT AND THE PRAISE AND

EXTRAORDINARY GROUP OF PEOPLE.

OUT OF THE SUFFERING -- THAT'S

THE THING. THEY CAME OUT OF

THE

SUFFERING OF THE HOLOCAUST AND

MILLIONS WERE GASSED AND THEY

COME BACK WITH NOTHING AND TAKE

THE DESERT AND BUILD THIS

INCREDIBLE ECONOMY AND AMAZING

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES. IT'S

JUST EXTRAORDINARY.

CONGRATULATIONS.

INDEED. WELL, THAT WAS THE

FINAL PART OF OUR MADE IN

ISRAEL

SERIES THAT YOU JUST WATCHED.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THEM ALL YOU

JUST NEED NEED TO THE WEBSITE

AND YOU CAN WATCH ALL FIVE

EPISODES AND WHEN THE WORLD IS

GETTING ADVANCED SOMETIMES

TECHNOLOGY NEEDS A LITTLE HELP.

UP NEXT WE WILL SHOW YOU A MAN

WHOSE HEART STOPPED BEATING FOR

30 MINUTES. FIND OUT WHY HE IS

STILL ALIVE TODAY WHEN WE COME

BACK

.

WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR

ANNUAL SEVEN DAYS OF

CELEBRATION

HERE AT CBN. STARTING AT SUN

DOWN AT ROSH SHAWNA AND WE ARE

DEDICATING TIME TO YOU AND WE

HAVE RECEIVED THOUSANDS OF

PRAYER REQUESTS AND ALL OF THEM

STAFF AND OUR NUMBER IS

CALL AND YOU CAN JOIN US.

WE'RE

STREAMING SERVICES ONLINE AND

AT

NOON EASTERN. LAST WEEK WE GOT

A MESSAGE FROM THIS PASTOR AND

HERE'S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.

THE GENERATION OF ABSENTEE

FATHERS AND MOTHERS AND

CHRISTIANS. IT'S JUST THERE.

I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING

GREAT.

I'M GOING TO DO SOMETHING

POWERFUL. I JUST NEED SOME

PEOPLE TO BE THANKFUL. I JUST

NEED PEOPLE TO BE THERE FOR

YOUR

FAMILY, BE THERE FOR YOUR

CHURCH, BE THERE FOR YOUR

PASTOR, FOR YOUR HUSBAND OR

WIFE, BE THERE FOR YOUR

CHILDREN, PARENTS, BE THERE

SPIRITUALLY IN THE WORD, BE

THERE PRAYER UP READY FOR ME.

WHEN I SAID IT IT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN. THERE IS A PROPHECY ON

OUR GENERATION, OUR LIVES JUST

LIKE WHEN JESUS SAID GO TO THE

UPPER RIM. YOU BE THERE AND I

WILL POUR OUT THE SPIRIT.

WE HEARD THE WORD OF THE

LORD

FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND

FIRE IN THIS ROOM N THIS TIME.

I WANT YOU TO LIFT THESE

REQUESTS IF YOU WILL PLEASE.

WE

CAN ASKING FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT

TO MINISTER INDEED. DELIVER

AND

COMFORT AND ANSWER AND BRING

SOLUTIONS TO THESE WHO HAVE

CALLED AND SAID I AM IN PAIN

AND

I NEED A MIRACLE AND WE ASK OH

LORD BECAUSE YOU HAVE INDEED

FILLED US WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT

AND POWER WE ASK SUPER

NATURALLY

FOR ANSWERS TO THESE PRAYERS.

WE PRAY THIS THING IN JESUS'

NAME. AMEN.

AND JUST A REMINDER THAT YOU

CAN SEND US YOUR PRAYER REQUEST

BY CALLING IN AT 1-800-759-0700

OR BY WRITING TO US AT

WWW.CBN.COM.

THE NUMBERS ARE ABOUT 30,000.

THOUSANDS.

130,000.

AND PRAYER DAILY.

HERE ARE SOME THAT WILL

TOUGH

YOUR HEARTS. HAVE A BLESSING

TO

SAVE OUR HOME OF 28 YEARS.

OH MY.

PEOPLE ARE BEING THROWN OUT

OF THEIR HOMES AND LITTLE

INFRACTION AND THE FORECLOSURE

RATE IS STILL SHOCKING AND WE

OUGHT TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE TO GET

JOBS. WE UNDERSTAND THERE ARE

90 MILLION PEOPLE OUT OF WORK

IN

AMERICA RIGHT NOW.

THAT'S UNBELIEVABLE.

IT APPROACHES THE GREAT

DEPRESSION TIME. WELL, WE WANT

TO SHOW YOU WHAT PRAYER DID FOR

A MAN NAMED ELAZA. ON EASTER

SUNDAY 2010 ED WAS PRESPIRING

WHEN GREETING MEMBERS AT CHURCH

AND THAT'S THE LAST THING HE

REMEMBERED UNTIL WE WOKE UP

THREE DAYS LATER. HERE'S WHAT

HAPPENED.

ME PLEASE RESPOND. WE

HAVE A MALE UNCONSCIOUS.

WE WERE MAKING OUR WAY TO

THE

HOSPITAL AND EVERY COUPLE OF

MINUTES I WOULD ASK, ARE YOU

OKAY? ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? AND

I

REMEMBER ONE LAST TIME ASKING

"ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?" AND HE

GAVE ME A GLASSY EYED LOOK. I

ASKED IF ME WAS OKAY AND THAT'S

WHEN EVERYTHING TOOK THE SPIRAL

IN ANOTHER DIRECTION.

THIS WOULD BE A CALL

PARAMEDIC MICHAEL RAY WOULD

NEVER FORGET. THIS MAN IN HIS

LATE 50'S HAD GONE INTO CARDIAC

ARREST.

CPR HAD BEEN STARTED. WE

STARTED TO SHOCK HIM.

CLEAR.

SHOCK HIM.

CLEAR. SHOCKING.

CPR CONTINUED AND MORE

MEDICATIONS AND SHOCK HIM AGAIN.

AT GOOD SAMARITAN HOSPITAL

IN

NEW YORK EMERGENCY ROOM STAFF

TOOK OVER ADVANCED LIFE

SUPPORT.

CARDIOLOGIST KERRY HURST WAS

CALLED IN AND LEARNED HE WAS IN

CARDIAC ARREST FOR 30 MINUTES.

WHEN YOU GO FOR FOUR MINUTES

WITHOUT OXYGEN TO THE BRAIN

THERE CAN BE BRAIN DAMAGE.

THE PARAMEDIC DECIDED TO

STAY

AND HELP. HIS EXPERIENCE TOLD

HIM IT DIDN'T LOOK GOOD.

UNLESS THE SUPER NATURAL

OCCURS THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE

A

FAVORABLE OUTCOME.

THE EMERGENCY ROOM NURSE

CAME

TO THE SAME CONCLUSION AND TOLD

ANOTHER NURSE HE WASN'T GOING

TO

MAKE IT AND SHE WAS TAKEN BACK

FROM HIS RESPONSE. SHE SAID

"YOU CAN'T SAY THAT" ? WHY? I

AM BEING HONEST. THE NURSE

TOLD

HER TO GO BACK INTO THE ROOM

AND

TELL THEM DON'T STOP WORKING.

SHE ALSO TOLD HER TO PRAY.

SO THE ONLY THING I COULD DO

FOR PUT MY HOPE IN FACING GOD

AND I HELD HIS HAND AND I

PRAYED

OUT LOUD.

PARAMEDIC RAY WAS THERE WHEN

SHE WAS PRAYING.

IF SOMETHING WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN THIS WAS THE TIME.

MEANWHILE ED'S FAMILY AND

FRIENDS WERE IN THE WAITING

ROOM

AND ALL SIGNS POINTED TO ED

WOULDN'T MAKE IT. HIS WIFE AND

SON ARE THE FIRST TO ARRIVE.

AT ONE TIME THE DOCTOR CAME

OUT AND SAID WE TRIED

EVERYTHING

POSSIBLE. I AM SO SORRY. I

JUST FELT NUMBED. I COULDN'T

BELIEVE THIS WAS TAKING PLACE.

THEN CAME THE WORD THAT

EVERYONE WAS WAITING TO HEAR.

DOCTOR SCREAMED "HE HAS A

PULSE. HE HAS A PULSE".

THE WHIRLWIND OF EMOTION WAS

HARD ON THE FAMILY. HIS SON

EXPLAINS.

ONE SECOND YOU'RE IMAGINING

WE HAVE TO GET READY FOR A

FUNERAL AND THE NEXT SECOND THE

DOCTOR COMES OUT "HE'S A

FIGHTER. HE'S A FIGHTER".

ED'S FIGHT WASN'T OVER.

IMMEDIATELY HE WAS TAKEN TO THE

CARDIAC UNIT AND THEY WORKED ON

HIS ARTERY WHICH WAS BLOCKED.

IN THE TIMES WHEN ED WAS

WORKED ON AND IN THE EMERGENCY

ROOM AND THEN INTO THE OTHER

AREAS AND THAT DIDN'T STOP.

SHE SAID SHE TRUSTED GOD FOR

THE OUTCOME.

I HAD THE PEACE THAT THE

LORD

WAS GOING TO PERFORM A MIRACLE.

IN ADDITION ED SUFFERED A

STROKE AND HIS BRAIN WAS

DEPRIVED FROM OXYGEN THEY

EXPECTED THE DAMAGE TO BE

EXTENSIVE AND IRREVERSIBLE.

THE

FAMILY COULD ONLY WAIT AND PRAY

AND THREE DAYS LATER HE OPENED

HIS EYES AND HIS WIFE BY HIS

SIDE.

HONEY, DO YOU RECOGNIZE ME?

I WAS SURPRISED SHE WOULD

ASK

ME THAT BECAUSE OF COURSE SHE

WAS MY WIFE.

ED COULDN'T GRASP WHAT

HAPPENED OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS.

I ASKED MY FAMILY A HUNDRED

DAYS WHAT HAPPENED BECAUSE EVEN

TO ME IT SOUNDED UNBELIEVABLE.

UNTIL A LOCAL CAMERA CREW

REQUESTED AN INTERVIEW.

ONE OF THE PARISHIONERS

COLLAPSED --

THE WORD AROUND TOWN IS THAT

A MIRACLE HAPPENED AT THE

HOSPITAL AND THAT MIRACLE WAS

ME.

I THINK THE WHOLE THING IS A

MIRACLE.

IT WAS HAILED AS THE EASTER

MIRACLE AND FOR MONTHS NEWS

STATIONS COVERED HIS RECOVERY

BUT ED STILL HAD A LONG WAY TO

GO.

THE HEART ATTACK WAS

OBVIOUSLY AN EVENT, BUT THE

STROKE WAS A BIGGER EVENT.

FIRST ED HAD TO LEARN TO

WALK

AGAIN, DO SIMPLE THINGS LIKE

BRUSH HIS TEETH. HE REALIZED

HE

NEED TO MAKE CHANGES. QUIT HIS

TWO PACK A DAY HABIT AND

STARTED

EATING RIGHT AND EXERCISING.

THE REHAB CENTER TOOK NOTICE.

WHAT'S IT? DO YOU WANT TO

DO

A MARATHON OR SOMETHING. I

SAID

"YES" , THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I

WANT TO DO.

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HE

DID. SIX MONTHS LATER HE RAN

THE FIRST HALF MARATHON AND

SAID

HE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT ON HIS

OWN.

TO FINISH HALF A MARATHON I

KNEW THAT WAS THE LORD AND I

WANTED TO HAIL THAT AND THE

LORD

HAS HEALED ME. HE'S NOT ONLY

HEALED ME BUT HE MADE ME

BETTER.

HE'S REALLY GIVING ME A NEW

LIFE. I AM NOW REBORN. A YEAR

LATER I RAN THE NEW YORK

MARATHON AND 26.2 MILES AND

IT'S

THE LAST POINT TWO THAT GETS

YOU.

THE CHANGE IN HIS LIFESTYLE

IT'S GRATIFYING. THE FACT HE'S

RUNNING A MARATHON IS AMAZING

AND MORE SO IS THE COGNITIVE

FUNCTION WHICH OBVIOUSLY NO ONE

COULD TELL ED WAS THROUGH ANY

PROCEDURE LIKE THIS OR AN EVENT

LIKE THIS. I THINK THAT IS

REMARKABLE. THERE ARE A LOT OF

PEOPLE THAT HAVE THE HEART

MUSCLE RETURN TO NORMAL BUT NOT

EVERYBODY MAKES A NEUROLOGICAL

RECOVERY AS WELL AS HE DID.

DR. HURST HAD A FAVORITE

WORD

AND IT'S

REMARKABLE AND I HEAR HIM SAY

THAT AND I THINK HE MEANS

MIRACULOUS.

GOD DOES MIRACLES.

WONDERFUL. HE WAS DEAD.

30 MINUTES.

DEAD, DEAD, AND HE RUNS A

MARATHON WITHIN A YEAR. ALL

RIGHT. HERE'S A PRAYER

REQUEST.

A DAUGHTER -- PRAY THAT SHE

DELIVERED FROM DRUG ADDICTION.

THE HEART BREAK IN PEOPLE'S

LIVES. PRAYER IS FOR THE PEACE

AND SECURITY OF YOUR LOVED ONES

AND FINANCIAL BLESSINGS TO SAVE

THE HOME. I MENTIONED THAT

BEFORE. YOU GOT SOME.

THIS IS A PERSON ASKING FOR

GUIDANCE TO GOING INTO

MARRIAGES

AND GET BETTER FROM CARBON

MONOXIDE POISONING FROM BEING

TRUCK DRIVERS.

AND IN THE CAB AND

NEVERTHELESS WE WILL PRAY AND

WELL, ACCORDING TO THE

AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL

ASSOCIATION MORE THAN THREE OUT

OF FOUR AMERICANS ARE SO

STRESSED OUT IT'S ACTUALLY

HURTING THEMSELVES PHYSICALLY.

IT MANIFESTS IN SLEEPLESS

NIGHTS, UPSET STOMACHS AND

HEART

DISEASE BUT HERE'S THE GOOD

NEWS. ACCORDING TO BEST

SELLING

AUTHOR MAX LUCADO YOU CAN GET

THROUGH IT.

SOMETIMES LIFE'S CHALLENGES

THREATEN TO OVERWHELM US AND WE

WONDER HOW WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

IT THROUGH BUT LEADING

INSPIRATIONAL AUTHOR AND LEADER

MAX LUCADO SAYS THERE IS HOPE

WANT HIS LATEST BOOK "YOU WILL

GET THROUGH THIS" WILL GIVE

YOU

PRACTICAL ADVICE TO GET THROUGH

DIFFICULT TIMES.

NAX IS WITH US AND WE

WELCOME

YOU BACK TO THE "THE 700 CLUB".

IT'S SO MUCH FUN TO READ YOUR

BOOKS AND YOU SHARE STORIES OF

PEOPLE AND YOU SWEPT UP IN

THEIR

CIRCUMSTANCES AND YOU HIT US

WITH THE ONE-TWO PUNCH OF WHAT

YOU'RE TRYING TO TEACH AND THE

SUBJECT BEING NO MATTER HOW

DIFFICULT THINGS ARE OR YOU'RE

STRUGGLING WITH YOU CAN GET

THROUGH IT. WHY IS THAT SO

IMPORTANT TO HIT HOME?

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

DISSPARE IS THE ENEMY. WE HAVE

TO DEFEAT IT. IT'S WHEN WE

THINK WE WON'T GET THROUGH IT

IS

WHEN DESPAIR KICKS IN AND THERE

IS NO END TO MY STRUGGLE OR

SOLUTION FOR MY STRUGGLE.

LIKE THE WINDS OUT OF THE

SAILS.

YEAH AND THE OXYGEN GOES OUT

OF THE ROOM AND THE DARGNESS

COMES AND IT'S A DANGEROUS

TIME.

WE ARE PUT IN A POSTURE WE MAKE

POOR DECISIONS.

YEAH.

WE ARE HARD TO LIVE WITH.

WE'RE TOXIC.

DESPERATE.

YEAH, WE MAKE THE SITUATION

WORSE INSTEAD OF BETTER.

NOW, THERE ARE PEOPLE

WATCHING I AM SURE NOW MAX THAT

ARE IN THE SITUATION YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT AND IT MAY SOUND

SIMPLE TO SAY YOU WILL GET

THROUGH THIS BUT IN FACT THAT'S

THE MESSAGE YOU NEED AND YOU'RE

NOT SAYING IT'S GOING TO BE S

YOU TALK ABOUT THE FACT IT'S

NOT

GOING TO BE PAINLESS AND NOT

GOING TO BE QUICK.

THAT'S EXACTLY THE POINT.

THE BIBLICAL PROMISE SEEMS TO

ME

THAT GOD DOES GET US THROUGH

THINGS. NOT ALWAYS AS QUICKLY

AS WE WANT AND CERTAINLY WITH

NO

PAIN BUT HE DOES GET US THROUGH

THINGS, RIGHT. I MEAN THE WORD

"THROUGH" IS ALL IN THE BIBLE

AND THROUGH THE SHADOWS OF THE

VALLEY OF THE DEATH, THROUGH

THE

STORM, THROUGH THE DEATH. IT'S

ONE OF GOD'S FAVORITE WORDS.

IT'S A MESSAGE OF

DELIVERANCE

AND I HADN'T THOUGHT ABOUT THAT

UNTIL YOU SAID THAT AND IT'S

ALL

ABOUT DELIVERANCE.

AND TEAR STAINS AND HOWEVER

GOD GETS PEOPLE THROUGH THINGS,

THROUGH THE RED SEA, THROUGH

THE

JORDAN RIVER. HE'S ALWAYS

WALKING US THROUGH AND THROUGH

A

BIG PICTURE GETTING US THROUGH

THIS LIFE AND READY FOR ETERNAL

DESTINY.

AND I AM GLAD YOU ARE

TALKING

ABOUT AND EVERYWHERE I TURN AND

IT'S THE STORY OF JOSEPH AND

GOD

I GET IT AND HE WAS NO STRANGER

TO TOUGH TIMES AND WHILE HE WAS

IN DESPERATE SITUATIONS LIKE

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AND YOU SAY

THE DEVIL HAD JOSEPH WHERE WE

WANTED HIM AND SO GO GOD.

GENESIS SAYS IS WHERE JOSEPH

WHO IS NOW PRIEF

-- PRIME MINISTER AND TURNS TO

THE BROTHER AND YOU MEANT EVIL

BUT GOD MEANT IT FOR GOOD. HE

UNDERSTOOD THAT GOD WAS UP TO

SOMETHING GREAT AND THE VERY

EVIL ACTUALLY HELPED JOSEPH

SURVIVE IN THIS LAND.

AND PART OF WHAT MADE IT

SUCCESSFUL FOR HIM IS WHAT YOU

WERE TALKING ABOUT AND DESPITE

ALL OF THE NEGATIVE THINGS THAT

HAPPENED HE NEVER GAVE UP ON

THE

DREAM THAT GOD HAD.

HE NEVER GAME YOU HAVE.

WHEN

HE WAS SOLD INTO SLAVERY ALL HE

HAD WERE THE DREAMS SO HE HELD

ON TO THE DREAMS AND BELIEVED

GOD HAD A DESTINY FOR HIM AND

REFUSED TO LET IT GO.

YOU HAVE A CHAPTER IN THE

BOOK "STUPID WON'T FIX STUPID".

IT'S AN EXPRESSION IN TEXAS

AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S

WORLDWIDE BUT AS A PASTOR --

YOU

KNOW, WE GET INTO THESE

SITUATIONS AND INSTEAD OF

TAKING

A HEALTHY RESPONSE TO A

DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCE OUR

TENDENCY IS TAKE THE SHORT

RESPONSE. IT MEANS MORE DEBT

DOESN'T FIX MORE DEBT. MORE

ADULTERY DOESN'T FIX A

MARRIAGE.

AND JOSEPH IS THE PERFECT

EXAMPLE OF THIS AND SOLD INTO

SLAVERY AND THE FIRST WIFE AND

COULD HAVE EXCUSED THE AFFAIR

AND I HAVE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH

AND DOESN'T HURT BUT HE DIDN'T

AND STOOD STRONG AND FROM

PRISON

HE BECAME THE PRIME MINISTER

BUT

HE DIDN'T LET A DIFFICULT

SITUATION AN EXCUSE TO MAKE A

BAD CHOICE.

YOU SAY DO WHAT PLEASES GOD.

THERE IS SO MUCH COMING OUT OF

THE WORLD TODAY WHETHER IT'S

MORALLY SEXUALLY WRONG, OR

BUSINESS DEALS, UNDER THE TABLE

DEALS, THE WAY THAT WE TREAT

EACH OTHER, ATTITUDE THINGS BUT

IT'S SIMPLE FOR THE CHRISTIAN.

IT IS. IT'S NOT COMPLICATE.

WE DON'T KNOW THE LONG-TERM

SOLUTION THAT GOD WILL USE BUT

WE KNOW OUR NEXT

RESPONSIBILITY.

DO WHAT PLEASES GOD. JOSEPH

WAS

FAMOUS FOR PLEASING GODS.

THERE

SAY PASSAGE THAT SAYS "DO WHAT

IS RIGHT AS AN OFFERING TO THE

LORD" SO ARE YOU TORN BETWEEN

THIS WAY OR THAT WAY, TURNING

RIGHT OR LEFT AND JUST DO THE

RIGHT THING. WHAT WOULD PLEASE

GOD AND IF I DO THAT EVERY TIME

THEN I AM COOPERATING WITH GOD

AS HE GETS ME THROUGH THE TOUGH

TIMES.

YEAH AND THAT IS REALLY THE

ANSWER. GOD IS GOING TO GET US

THROUGH THE TOUGH TIME. HE HAS

PROVEN THAT. IT'S HIS

CHARACTER

BUT WE HAVE TO HELP.

YES WE PARTNER WITH HIM.

LET'S FORGET IT'S FOR US, TO

DEVELOP US. WE'RE ALWAYS

SAYING

GOD CHANGE MY CIRCUMSTANCES

WHEN

GOD MIGHT BE USING THE

CIRCUMSTANCES TO CHANGE US, TO

TRAIN US, TO

DEVELOP US AND BY THE TIME

JOSEPH BECAME PRIME MINISTER HE

WAS TRAINED AND WAS A PRISONER

AND ENSLAVED AND REJECTED AND

LANDED ON HIS FEET AND HE WAS

READY FOR THIS.

IT'S SUCH A GOOD BOOK AND

WHO

DOESN'T NEED TO HEAR THAT YOU

WILL GET THROUGH THIS. HELP

AND

HOPE FOR YOUR TURBULENT TIMES

AND THIS IS AVAILABLE AROUND

THE

COUNTRY AND JUST MAKE THE REST

OF MAX'S BOOKS. IF YOU WANT TO

SEE MORE OF MAX GO TO

FEATURED SPEAKER THIS AFTERNOON

AUTHOR. THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR THE PROGRAM. TOMORROW

A WALK IN THE PARK TURNS TO A

TRIP TO THE OR AND A NEW MOM'S

FIGHT FOR LIFE AND TODAY WE

THE PRAYER OF FAITH WILL SAVE

THE SICK AND THE LORD WILL

RAISE

THEM UP. WE WILL SEE YOU

TOMORROW. BYE BYE
