TOUGH TIMES ARE COMING.

WE'LL TAKE YOU TO A MODERN

DAY UTOPIA WHERE FREEDOM LOVERS

ARE SEEKING ASYLUM.

WHERE YOUR KIDS CAN RUN FREE.

AND PEOPLE ARE RECONNECTING

WITH GOD.

PLUS SHE IS A BEST SELLING

AUTHOR AND BILLY GRAHAM'S

DAUGHTER.

ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ OPENS UP ON

TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

[APPLAUSE]

PAT: WELCOME LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN TO THIS EDITION OF

"700 CLUB." COUNTDOWN TO

ARMAGEDDON, STILL SQUABBLING IN

WASHINGTON.

GUESS WHAT, DEMOCRATS WANT

FREEDOM TO SPEND MORE.

THEY NEED A FIX.

IT IS LIKE A HEROIN ADDICT, THEY

NEED A FIX. THEY WANT THE

SEQUESTER TAKEN AWAY AS A PRICE

FOR REOPENING THE GOVERNMENT.

IT IS SHOCKING.

TERRY: SHOCKING BUT HONEST

AT LAST, RIGHT.

PAT: GO AHEAD.

TERRY: REPUBLICANS ARE NOT

GOING AWAY WITH ANY PLAN THAT

GETS AWAY WITH SPENDING CUTS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: SENATE LEADERS ARE

TAKING CHARGE OF NEGOTIATIONS TO

AVOID A DEFAULT.

THEY TOO FAILED TO AGREE ON A

DEAL.

WE ARE ON A FREE FALL AS

REPUBLICANS, DEMOCRATS ARE NOT

TOO FAR BEHIND.

6 0% OF AMERICANS WANT TO VOTE

ALL

INCUMBENTS OUT.

REPORTER: DEMOCRATS

ARE

TRYING

TO

LIMIT

AUTOMATIC

SEQUESTER SPENDING

CUTS.

PLAN

WOULD BE OPEN UP THE

GOVERNMENT AND SERIOUS QUESTIONS

ON UNDOING THE SEQUESTER.

IF YOU BREAK THE SPENDING

CAPS, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO GET

ANY REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE.

REPORTER:

A

MAJOR STEP IN THE

WRONG DIRECTION.

AMERICAN'S PATIENTS ARE WEARING

THIN.

HUNDREDS OF PROTESTERS CALLING

THEMSELVES THE MILLION VET MARCH

REMOVED BARRICADES AT SEVERAL

MEMORIALS AND MARCHED OVER TO

THE GATES OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND,

THAT IS THE TROUBLE.

LEFT HAND DOESN'T WANT TO TALK

TO THE RIGHT HAND.

REPORTER:

REPUBLICAN SENATOR

TED CRUZ JOINED THE CROWD AND

WHY THE GOVERNMENT WAS SPENDING

MONEY TO KEEP VETERANS OUT OF

MEMORIALS.

ENOUGH GAMES.

REPORTER:

SEVERAL PROTESTERS

HAD

SIGNS

READING

IMPEACH OBAMA.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

PAT: IT WILL GET A LOT UGLIER

UNLESS THEY DO SOMETHING.

THIS IS CRAZY.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT IS A

PARTY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SPEND

SPENDAHOLICS.

INTEREST ON THE DEBT WILL

ENCOMPASS THE ENTIRE FEDERAL

BUDGET.

THE SEQUESTER WHICH WAS PUT IN

BECAUSE OF A SUGGESTION BY THE

PRESIDENT.

IT WAS HIS SUGGESTION AND

REPUBLICANS PICKED UP ON IT.

IT HAS BEEN THE MOST EFFECTIVE

MEANS OF SCALING BACK RECKLESS

SPENDING OF GOVERNMENT.

REPUBLICANS COULDN'T POSSIBLY

GIVE IT UP.

IF THEY DID THEY WOULD BE INSANE

AND FACE ANGRY ELECTORATES WHEN

THEY WOULD GET HOME.

THEY CAN'T DO THAT.

DEMOCRATS SHOULD KNOW THEY

CAN'T.

YOU HAVE THREE MORE DAYS TO GO

BEFORE WE HAVE A DEFAULT THAT

WOULD ROCKET AROUND THE WORLD.

IF WE LOSE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I WANT TO MAKE THIS

AS CLEAR AS I CAN, IF THE UNITED

STATES LOSES ITS STATUS AS

HAVING THE RESERVE CURRENCY OF

THE WORLD, IT WILL MEAN CHAOS

FOR EVERY CITIZEN.

VALUE OF YOUR PENSIONS WILL GO

DOWN, VALUE OF YOUR HOME WILL GO

DOWN, VALUE OF WHAT YOU HAVE TO

BORROW IS GOING TO GO UP

EXTRAORDINARILY, MUCH HIGHER

INTEREST RATES AND FROM NOW ON

THE GOVERNMENT WON'T BE ABLE TO

PRINT MONEY.

IT WILL HAVE TO COME UP WITH

SOME.

MUCH, MUCH HIGHER TAXES.

IT IS CHAOTIC!

THESE GUYS ARE PLAYING GAMES.

I HOPE THE REPUBLICANS ON THIS

ONE WILL STAND FAST.

THEY HAVE GOT TO STAND FAST AND

SAY NO MORE.

I CAN'T IMAGINE THE MEMBERS OF

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

ALLOWING THAT SEQUESTER TO GO

AWAY.

SENATOR TED CRUZ HAS BEEN

CATCHING HEAT FROM THE PRESIDENT

AND THE MEDIA DURING THE

SHUTDOWN.

HE IS A HERO TO GRASS ROOTS

CONSERVATIVES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THE STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

REPORTER: CONSERVATIVE

ACTIVISTS WERE IN WASHINGTON TO

TALK ABOUT 'OBAMACARE' AT THE

VALUES VOTERS SUMMIT, FUTURE OF

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND NEXT

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.

DAVID BRODY

REPORTS,

TED CRUZ

WAS THE

WINNER OF THE STRAW

POLL.

DAVID: HE TOOK ON A NUMBER OF

HECK LERS WHO REPEATEDLY TRIED

TO INTERRUPT HIS SPEECH.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

MA'AM, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

DAVID: THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN YOU LEAD THE FIGHT AGAINST

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S AGENDA LIKE

CRUZ HAS DONE AFTER HITTING

WASHINGTON A YEAR AGO T.

DEMOCRATIC PARTY PLANTED THOSE

CRITICS IN THE AUDIENCE.

DAVID: DO YOU BELIEVE IT WAS

AN ORCHESTRATED EVENT?

IT WAS.

I AM ENCOURAGED BY IT AS STRANGE

AS IT SOUNDS.

IT SHOWS THEY ARE AFRAID OF THE

THOUSANDS OF MEN AND WOMEN

GATHERED THERE.

AFRAID OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

HEARING THE TRUTH.

THEY WANT TO DISRUPT IT.

DAVID: WHEN THE STRAW POLL

RESULTS CAME OUT, CRUZ FINISHED

FIRST.

DR. BEN CARSON, A FREQUENT

CRITIC OF 'OBAMACARE' WHO PUSHED

IT FURTHER IN FRONT OF THIS

FAMILY VALUES CROWD.

'OBAMACARE' IS THE WORST

THING THAT

HAS

HAPPENED IN THIS

NATION SINCE SLAVERY.

DAVID: GOP

CURRENTLY

FIGHTING

ABOUT HOW TO WIN AS A PARTY.

BIG QUESTION: GO MORE

CONSERVATIVE OR TRACK TO THE

MIDDLE?

SNAR SENATOR MARCO RUBIO.

PEOPLE SEE REPUBLICANS

FIGHTING AGAINST SOME THINGS,

THEY ARE NOT SURE WHO WE ARE

FIGHTING ON BEHALF OF.

DAVID: WHILE TED CRUZ PLAYS

THE STANDING OVATION, SOME

QUESTION WHETHER THE 'OBAMACARE'

FIGHT WAS WORTH IT.

WE GAVE THE DEMOCRATS ONE

INCREDIBLY EARLY CHRISTMAS GIFT.

DAVID: MIKE HUCKABEE SAYS

SHUTTING DOWN THE GOVERNMENT

-- I AM NOT GOING TO FAULT

TED.

IN THE END OF THE DAY, ARE WE

ANY CLOSER TO DEFUNDING

'OBAMACARE' OR RIDDING OURSELVES

OF IT THAN WE WERE?

ANSWER IS NO.

DAVID: THOSE STRATEGY

DIFFERENCES COULD BE A PREVIEW

OF COMING ATTRACTIONS IN A 2016

PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

HUCKABEE TOLD US HE IS THINKING

ABOUT RUNNING.

AM I THINKING ABOUT IT, YEAH,

THAT WOULD BE FAIR TO SAY.

DAVID: ALSO ON THE MIND OF

RAND PAUL AND TALKED ABOUT TO

CBN NEWS ABOUT A PRIVATE

MEETING.

TO ME IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE

TALK TO PEOPLE OF FAITH.

WE HEAR FROM THEM AND HAVE

INFLUENCE ON THE GOVERNMENT.

DAVID: FOR NOW ALL EYES ON

TED CRUZ A PRESIDENTIAL RUN

COULD BE IN THE

CARDS, HE HAS

HIS HANDS FULL TAKING ON OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

IT LEAVES HIM DOING ONE SIMPLE

THING, PRAYING.

WHERE DO YOU SEE GOD IN YOUR

LIFE?

DAVID, IN EVERY STAGE, TO

GOD, HIS WILL BE DONE.

DAVID: ALL WE CAN DO NOW IS

WAIT FOR THE REST OF THE STORY,

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

REPORTER: WASHINGTON IS

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET

A MASSIVE HANDLE ON ITS DEFICIT.

BUSINESSES, HOUSE HOLDS AND

STUDENTS ALL TAKING ON MORE

DEBT.

CONSUMER CREDIT IS UP 22% TO

OVER THREE TRILLION DOLLARS.

STUDENT LOANS UP 61%, TOTAL

HOUSE HOLD DEBT 13 TRILLION

DOLLARS, JUST BELOW GOVERNMENT'S

OF 15 TRILLION.

A NUMBER OF AMERICANS ARE GOING

TO HAVE TO WAIT TO RETIRE.

MANY SAY THEY'LL HAVE TO KEEP

WORKING.

A NEW SURVEY FROM ASSOCIATED

PRESS FINDS 82% OF WORKING

AMERICANS OVER 50, THEY'LL HAVE

TO DO SOME WORK FOR PAY.

47% EXPECT TO RETIRE LATER THAN

PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT.

EXPERTS SAY THEY HAVE TO MAKE UP

FOR LOST MONEY WHEN THE MARKETS

PLUNGED IN 2008.

SOME SAY IT IS HARD TO SAVE FOR

RETIREMENT BECAUSE THE COST OF

LIVES IS TO HIGH.

RECOVERY EFFORTS ARE UNDERWAY

FROM THE MASSIVE CYCLONE THAT

HIT INDIA COMING ASHORE WITH 140

MILES PER HOUR.

THE DEATH TOLL IS LOW.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS HOMELESS.

CBN DISASTER TEAM IS ON THE

GROUND.

GARY LANE HAS THAT STORY.

REPORTER: THE STORM LEFT A

TRAIL OF DESTRUCTION IN ITS

WAKE, MUD AND STRAW HUTS

LEVELLED, FEWER PEOPLE DIED IN

THIS STORM THAN THE LAST MAJOR

CYCLONE IN 1999.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS LEARN

LESSONS FROM THE PAST.

THIS TIME NEARLY A MILLION

PEOPLE EVACUATED FROM THE YEARS

SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE FALLAN HIT.

CRIPPLED COMMUNICATIONS ARE

MAKING RESCUES DIFFICULT.

NOT MUCH IS LEFT OF A FISHING

VILLAGE.

FISHING BOATS WERE TOSSED INTO

HOUSES LIKE PLAY TOYS.

THIS WOMAN SAYS SHE FOUND HER

HOME HAD BEEN DESTROYED.

I STARTED CRYING, SHE SAID.

I HAVE NOTHING TO EAT BUT PUFFED

RICE.

THE CYCLONE WIPED OUT TENS OF

THOUSAND OF CROPS.

MANY OF THE AREAS ARE FLOODED

WITH SEA WATER.

WORST EFFECTS WILL BE FELT IN

THE DAY AHEAD, HOMELESS AND

HUNGRY,

TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF

INDIANS WILL NEED HELP.

THE CBN DISASTER RELIEF TEAM IS

ON THE GROUND SERVING UP HOT

MEALS TO VICTIMS AND RELIEF

WORKERS.

MEDICAL CLINICS OPERATIONAL AND

SHEETS HAVE BEEN PROVIDED TO

PEOPLE WITH DAMAGED ROOFS, GARY

EFFECT IS IN THE DAYS TO COME

WITH MUCH ASSISTANCE REQUIRED.

PAT: NO QUESTION.

LAST MAJOR CYCLONE, 200,000

PEOPLE DIED.

IT WAS A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY.

THEY TOOK WARNING.

THIS CYCLONE WAS AS BIG AS

FRANCE.

IT WAS A MONSTER.

IT CAME OFF THE BAY OF BENGAL.

HUMAN LIFE WAS TERRIBLE.

REPORTER: TUESDAY FROM

MUSLIM.

I REMEMBER MY --

REPORTER: TO MOST WANTED, A

CAREER CRIMINAL GETS ARRESTED.

I WAS ARRESTED 29 TIMES.

REPORTER: AND FINDS FREEDOM

ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THIS WAS A PEACE I DIDN'T

HAVE ANYWHERE ELSE.

REPORTER: TUESDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

PAT: YOU HAVE PROBABLY HEARD

ABOUT ANNE RANDS BOOK,

PRODUCTIVE PEOPLE WITH DREW TO

COLORADO, WE'LL START UP ANOTHER

STATE HERE AND LET THE WEIGHT OF

THE WORLD FALL.

IT IS GETTING SO BAD A LOT OF

PEOPLE FEEL THAT WAY.

SOME OF YOU SAY WHAT IF I COULD

REALLY GET AWAY FROM IT ALL?

IT IS TOUGH TO GET AWAY FROM THE

LONG ARM OF THE GOVERNMENT.

WHAT IF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FELT

SAFE AND COULD ENJOY LIFE?

THAT IS WHAT SOME CONSERVATIVE

CHRISTIANS ARE DOING.

THEY ARE SO WORRIED ABOUT THE

FUTURE OF AMERICA, THEY HAVE

GONE TO AMERICAN REDOUBT.

THE WORD REDOUBT MEANS SAFE

PROTECTIVE PLACE.

CHUCK HOLTON HAS THIS STORY FROM

OHIO.

PROTESTERS ON THE STREETS OF

LOS ANGELES.

REPORTER: ALARM OVER THE

FUTURE OF AMERICA CAN BE SEEN

DAILY IN THE HEAD LINES.

LOSS OF FREEDOM AND OUT OF

CONTROL SPENDING ARE A FEW OF

THE REASONS SENDING SHOCK WAVES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION ON THE

RISE.

THAT IS LEADING MANY BELIEVERS

TO LOOK BEYOND THE BALLOT BOX

AND VOTE WITH THEIR FEET.

DAVID WESTFIELD MOVED OUT OF THE

CITY 12 YEARS AGO.

I BECAME CONVICTED AND WE

NEEDED TO LIVE IN A DIFFERENT

SITUATION.

REPORTER: THE AREA HE CHOSE

IS ATTRACTING MORE AND MORE

FAMILIES, INLAND PACIFIC

NORTHWEST, MONTANA, WYOMING,

OHIO AND EASTERN PARTS OF

WASHINGTON AND OREGON.

AMERICANS CALL THIS THE AMERICAN

REDOUBT.

PEOPLE RECOGNIZE TOUGH TIMES

ARE COMING.

CAUSING THEM TO THINK ABOUT HOW

THEY LIVE NOW, SECURITY OF THEIR

FAMILIES, STABILITY OF SOCIETY

AND HOW THEY RELATE.

I AM FINDING SOMETHING ELSE,

TOO.

MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE

RESONATING WITH THIS IDEA OF

GIVING BACK TO THE LAND, LIVING

A SIMPLE OR NATURAL WAY AND THAT

DOESN'T SURPRISE ME.

THE WAY I SEE IT, CREATOR WIRED

US FOR THIS.

REPORTER: OHIO IS A PARADISE

FOR NATURE LOVERS OF ALL KINDS

AND LEAST POPULOUS STATES IN THE

UNION.

THAT IS A BIG DRAW FOR THE KIND

OF PEOPLE THAT COME TO THE

AMERICAN REDOUBT.

BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE IT IS

MORE FREE FOR THEM TO LIVE AND

WORK AND WORSHIP AS THEY PLEASE.

KIDS CAN RUN FREE.

SPENDING TIME WITH LIVESTOCK,

HORSES, GARDEN.

WE SAW HOW QUICKLY THINGS

DETERIORATED.

REPORTER: JOHN AND SARAH

ENJOYED LIFE IN FLORIDA UNTIL A

HURRICANE CHANGED THEIR OUTLOOK

FOREVER.

THEY ASKED WE NOT SHOW THEIR

FACES.

I REALIZED PEOPLE GETTING IN

FISTFIGHTS OVER ICE.

REPORTER: COUPLE INVESTED

THEIR LIFE SAVINGS AND MOVED TO

THE AMERICAN REDOUBT.

THEY ARE HAPPY.

I AM EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW

CHALLENGES AND NEW LIFE WE ARE

GOING TO EMBRACE, WE HAVE

EMBRACED.

WE ARE PREPARED AND READY TO

FACE.

WHAT CHALLENGES ARE COMING OUR

WAY?

I DON'T KNOW.

GOD BROUGHT US HERE AND IS GOING

TO BRING US THROUGH ANY TROUBLES

WE DO HAVE.

WELCOME AND THANKS FOR LISTEN

TO AMERICAN REDOUBT.

REPORTER: THE GROWTH HAS

SPAWNED RADIO PROGRAMS, WEBSITES

AND SILVER COINS.

TODD SAVAGE HAS MOVED FROM FROM

SAN FRANCISCO AND HELPING

PEOPLE.

THE CORE IS HELP, LIKE MINDED

CHRISTIANS MOVE TO AMERICAN

REDOUBT AREA.

EASTERN WASHINGTON.

SINCE THE RE-ELECTION OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA, WE HAVE SEEN A

HUGE INCREASE IN DEMAND.

REPORTER: IT IS NOT BEING

EXCLUSIVE.

IT IS ABOUT LIBERTY.

AMERICAN REDOUBT IS FOR

FREEDOM LOVING FOLKS ACCEPTING

OF EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF

RELIGIOUS PREFERENCES OR SKIN

COLOR, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS

PREDOMINANTLY.

REPORTER: GUN AND AMMO

MANUFACTURES DRIVEN OUT, THERE

ARE 180 IN OHIO ALONE.

DAVE WESTBROOK ASSERTS THE

BIGGEST DRAW IS SPIRITUAL.

IT IS SO MUCH MORE CONDUCIVE

TO OUR SPIRITUAL WALK WITH GOD.

FOR US, FOR MY FAMILY, THAT IS

THE NO. 1 REASON BECAUSE IT WAS

A WAY OF LIFE.

REPORTER: I AM CHUCK HOLTON

FOR CBN NEWS.

PAT: PEOPLE HAVE BEEN LOOKING

FOR THE PARADISE FOREVER.

THEY HAVE NEVER FOUND IT.

TRUTH IS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

WE HAVE OVER 300 MILLION PEOPLE

IN AMERICA, THEY CAN'T ALL MOVE

TO OHIO, WYOMING, MONTANA, NEW

MEXICO OR SOME WESTERN STATE.

THERE ISN'T ENOUGH

INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT THEM.

WHEN THEY GET THERE I HAVE ASKED

THEM, HOW DO THEY LIVE AND GET

MONEY?

THEY CAN'T ALL BE MAKING GUNS

AND AMMUNITION, NOT ENOUGH

FARMING.

FARMING IS EXPENSIVE.

IT ALL SOUNDS SO WONDERFUL.

TERRY: IN THE END, LONG ARM

OF WASHINGTON REACHES

EVERYWHERE.

PAT: THEY DID A NUMBER ON

RUBY RICH.

THE FBI CAME AND SHOT THE MAN'S

WIFE DEAD.

CAN YOU GET AWAY, NO?

DON'T THINK ABOUT IT.

CAN YOU CHANGE THE SITUATION YOU

ARE IN?

ANSWER IS FROM ON HIGH.

ONLY GOD HAS THE MONEY,

RESOURCES, INTELLIGENCE TO

SUSTAIN PEOPLE.

THE DESIRE TO SHRUG IS GOING TO

GET STRONGER.

GOVERNMENT IS INTO YOUR

POCKETBOOK.

AMOUNT OF REGULATIONS IS E N--

ENORMOUS.

WE HAVE BEEN SHOWING HOW THEY

ENGAGE IN EVERYTHING.

PRAY GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU.

LET'S FACE IT, MAN KIND HAS GONE

THROUGH THE MIDDLE AGES, DARK

AGES, ICE AGE, WE ARE STILL

HERE.

TERRY: WE ARE.

PEOPLE FEEL POTENTIAL DREAD OF

THE FUTURE.

OUR HOPE IS IN THE LORD, HE IS A

REDEEMER AND SUSTAINER AND ALL

POWERFUL.

PAT: WHAT IS NEXT?

TERRY: MEET A MAN WITH A

PAINFUL BONE SPUR AND SEE HOW HE

WAS HEALED IN AN INSTANT ON HIS

BIRTHDAY.

WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

NEEDS AND LATER ON, BILLY GRAHAM

CALLS HER THE BEST PREACHER IN

THE FAMILY, ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ

JOINS US LIVE LATER ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

TERRY: ON MAY 7TH OF THIS

YEAR, RAMONE RODRIGUEZ RECEIVED

THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT OF HIS

LIFE.

I WAS WALKING AND STEPPED

INTO A HOLE.

MY FOOT TWISTED.

I FELT PAIN AND TOLD MY WIFE

WHAT HAPPENED.

SHE SAID YOU SHOULD GO SEE A

DOCTOR.

I SAID NO, I BELIEVE IT IS OKAY.

I AM SURE IT IS JUST A SPRAIN.

IT HURT.

IT REALLY HURT.

THIS WENT ON FOR ABOUT A MONTH.

IT CONTINUED MY WIFE FINALLY

TALKED ABOUT ME INTO GOING TO

THE DOCTOR.

WHEN I WENT TO THE DOCTOR, THEY

TOOK X-RAYS.

I HAD A HAIRLINE FRACTURE WITH A

SPUR THAT DEVELOPED.

THEY SET ME UP FOR THERAPY.

STILL THE PAIN CONTINUED.

WE USED TO GO TO THE PARK AND

WALK AROUND THE PARK.

IT WAS PAINFUL AND I COULD ONLY

DO SO MUCH AND I'D HAVE TO GIVE

UP.

MY BIRTHDAY CAME ALONG MAY THE

7TH.

WE WERE SITTING DOWN IN THE

LIVING ROOM WATCHING PAT.

SOMEONE OUT THERE WITH A RIGHT

FOOT WITH A SPUR DEVELOPED, THE

LORD IS HEALING THAT RIGHT NOW.

PAT: SOMEBODY HAS A BONE

SPUR, I GUESS IN YOUR HEEL, VERY

PAINFUL, IT IS A CALCIUM DEPOSIT

STICKING INTO SOMETHING.

RIGHT NOW IT IS LITERALLY

MELTING AWAY AND GONE.

MY WIFE AND I CLAIMED THAT,

LAID HANDS ON MY FOOT, PRAISED

GOD, THE LORD HEALED IT RIGHT

THEN AND THERE.

MY HEAL FEELS FANTASTIC, FEELS

GREAT.

I CAN JUMP, I CAN RUN.

THERE IS NO HINDRANCE.

NONE WHATSOEVER.

THAT MIRACLE CAME, THANK YOU

FATHER ON MY BIRTHDAY.

GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

OUR GOD CAN DO ANYTHING.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

TERRY: RAMONE SAID IT ALL,

GOD CAN DO ANYTHING AND WILL DO

ANYTHING.

CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD.

TERRY: ISN'T THAT A THRILL?

I DON'T KNOW RAMONE.

HE DOESN'T KNOW ME.

HE WATCHES THIS PROGRAM.

GOD DOES.

GAVE THE WORD, HE AND HIS WIFE

AGREED.

POWER OF PRAYER SHOWS

EXTRAORDINARY THINGS THAT CAN

HAPPEN IF WE BELIEVE GOD,

UNBELIEVABLE THE POWER AND

THINGS I DO, JESUS SAID YOU'LL

DO BECAUSE I AM GOING TO MY

FATHER.

WE HAVE SOME OTHER PRAYER

ANSWERS.

TERRY: LAST AUGUST SALLY WHO

PAIN AND BLEEDING CONTINUED FOR

THREE WEEKS.

HER HUSBAND HEARD YOU PAT GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

SOMEBODY HAS SOMETHING, NOT AN

ULCER, SOMETHING CAUSING

BLEEDING AND PROBLEMS.

RIGHT NOW YOU'LL FEEL BURNING

FIRE AND YOU ARE HEALED.

WHEN SALLY ENTERED THE WORD, HE

REPEATED THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

FELT GOD'S PRESENCE, PAIN AND

BLEEDING STOPPED IMMEDIATELY.

NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM.

PAT: HERE IS CHARLES FROM

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA.

CHARLES DISCOVERED A RED MARK ON

HIS LEG.

THEY SAID IT IS MRSA.

IT CAN BE LIFE THREATENING.

PRESCRIBED THREE ROUNDS OF

ANTIBIOTICS.

CHARLES WAS WATCHING, TERRY YOU

HAD A WORD, QUOTE "YOU HAVE A

SKIN CONDITIONS CAUSING YOUR

SKIN TO FEEL LIKE IT IS LIFE

INTERRUPTING, GOD IS HEALING

YOU."

AS TERRY WAS PRAYING, CHARLES

FELT A COOLING SENSATION AND

CHANGED FROM PURPLE TO LIGHT

PINK.

INFECTION COMPLETELY GONE.

NO MORE MRSA IN CHARLES' LEG.

FOLKS, GOD!

GOD IS ABLE!

WE SERVE A GREAT GOD.

CALL UPON ME AND I'LL ANSWER YOU

AND SHOW YOU GREAT MIGHTY THINGS

YOU DIDN'T KNOW.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS TOGETHER.

DOESN'T COST YOU ANYTHING.

COST JESUS CHRIST, NOT GOING TO

COST YOU ANYTHING.

LET'S SEE THE MIRACLE OF GOD.

LORD, I JOIN HANDS WITH MY DEAR

SISTER IN CHRIST.

WE BELIEVE FOR THE POWER OF GOD

TERRY: WE LOVE TO HEAR FROM

YOU, YOU SUBMITTED QUESTIONS TO

OUR BRING IT ON SEGMENT ONLINE.

WE WANT TO ANSWER THOSE.

JOANNE SAYS: WHY DO WE SAY GOD

BLESS YOU WHEN SOMEONE SNEEZES,

IS IT TRUE OUR SOUL ESCAPES AND

GOD BLESS SHOVES IT BACK IN

[LAUGHTER]?

PAT: IT IS A MEDIEVAL

SUPERSTITION.

THE SOUL OR SPIRIT LEFT WHEN YOU

SNEEZED.

THAT YOU MIGHT BE SUBJECT TO

DEMONIC ATTACK IN THAT EMPTY

SPACE.

TERRY: REALLY?

THAT IS THE ORIGIN.

PAT: TOTALLY SUPERSTITIOUS.

YOU GO ALONG WITH IT.

TERRY: THIS IS DAILY, I HAD

PREMARITAL SEX 17-19.

WHEN I TURNED 20 I DECIDED I

WANTED TO KEEP MYSELF PURE AND

CELIBATE.

HOW DO I KNOW GOD HAS FORGIVEN

ME AND THEN I AM FREE.

PAT: LOOK, THE BIBLE SAYS ALL

SINS AND BLASPHEMIES ARE

FORGIVEN UNDER MAN.

CONFESS OUR SINS AND FAITHFUL

AND JUST TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

LOOK, THIS WHOLE THING, I REALLY

BELIEVE THE THING TO DO IS SAY

TO HUSBAND OR WIFE, BEFORE I GET

MARRIED, I LIVED A WILDLIFE.

FROM NOW ON I BELONG TO YOU AND

WE ARE GOING TO LIVE A LIFE

TOGETHER.

DON'T HAVE A BIG CONFESSION

TIME.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT CHAR LEE,

JAMES, JOHN, DON'T DO IT.

YOU CAN SAY LISTEN.

I LIVED FOR THE DEVIL BEFORE WE

WERE MARRIED AND PROMISE CUOUS,

AND START PRAISING GOD.

BIBLE SAYS HE WANTS YOU CLEANSED

FROM DEAD WORKS TO SERVE THE

LIVING GOD.

HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR

SERVICE NOT BEATING YOU UP FROM

THE PAST.

TERRY: IT SAYS HE REMEMBERS

YOUR SIN NO MORE.

[LAUGHTER].

PAT: THIS IDEA OF COMING INTO

MARRIAGE, I WANT TO TELL YOU ALL

THE STUFF I DID, NO WAY!

SAY WE ALL DID IT.

I AM SINGLE AND THIS IS THE WAY

I LIVED, ENOUGH GOOD-BYE.

TERRY: AGNUS: THERE ARE

TIMES I READ THE BIBLE, HOW CAN

I STUDY THE BIBLE TO HELP ME GET

CLOSER TO GOD.

PAT: START WITH GOSPEL OF

JOHN.

IT IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND, READ

ACTS AND LETTERS OF E PISTOLSES.

GO TO GENESIS.

READ A CHAPTER, DON'T JUST TAKE

IT VERSE BY VERSE, COUPLE OF

CHAPTERS, BEGIN TO GET THE SENSE

OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, WHAT IT

IS ABOUT, WHO IT IS ADDRESSED TO

AND ASK GOD TO SPEAK TO YOU,

LORD, BRING SOMETHING FROM THIS

THAT WILL TOUCH MY HEART.

SOMETHING.

YOU KNOW, LIKE TODAY I WAS

READING IN 81ST PSALM, VERSE IN

THERE YOU LAY HOLD OF.

THIS IS MY VERSE FOR TODAY.

THAT IS THE WAY TO DO IT.

TERRY: JOHN SAID I HEARD IT

TAUGHT THOSE THAT NEVER HEARD

THE GOSPEL WILL GO TO HEAVEN,

DOESN'T THAT MEAN BY SHARING THE

GOOD NEWS OF JESUS WE CONDEMN

THEM IF THEY DON'T ACCEPT THEM.

THAT DOESN'T SOUND VERY LOVING.

PAT: JOHN, YOU ARE CONFUSED.

YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT WRONG

THINGS.

ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT

OF THE GLORY OF GOD.

NOBODY THAT HASN'T VIOLATED WHAT

HIS OWN CONSCIOUS HAS SHOWN HIM.

IT IS LIKE THE MAN WHO USED

CREATE IDOLS AND LOOKED AT THAT

IDOL AND SAID PEOPLE ARE

WORSHIPPING THAT IDOL.

MY HAND MADE THAT IDOL.

INNATE UNDERSTANDING, HEAVENS

DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD.

THERE IS INNATE UNDERSTANDING OF

GOD AND ALL HAVE SINNED, EVERY

ONE OF US HAVE VIOLATED, THOSE

THAT COME TO JESUS CHRIST ARE

SHOWN MERCY AND THOSE THAT DON'T

ACCOUNT FOR WHAT THEY DID IN

RELATION TO WHAT THEY KNOW.

SO KNOW IF YOU PREACHED THE

GOSPEL YOU WILL NOT CONDEMN

PEOPLE.

THAT IS A FALSE PREMISE.

TERRY: WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

MEAN WHEN IT SAYS FAITH WITHOUT

WORKS IS DEAD?

PAT: THAT IS JAMES.

MARTIN LUTHER CALLED IT -- HE

DIDN'T LIKE JAMES.

HE BELIEVED IN JUSTIFICATION BY

FAITH.

YOU SAY YOU HAVE FAITH I'LL SHOW

YOU MY FAITH BY WHAT I DO.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU REALLY

HAVE FAITH IN GOD THERE WILL BE

AN OUT WORKING OF THAT FAITH.

THAT IS WHAT JAMES IS TRYING TO

GET ACROSS TO US.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE LOVE, IF YOU

DON'T HAVE COMPASSION, YOU DON'T

LOOK AFTER THE POOR, HOW CAN YOU

SAY YOU HAVE FAITH?

TERRY: THAT IS A TRANSFORMED

LIFE.

PAT: ABSOLUTELY.

THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS, YOUR

FAITH IS DEAD UNLESS THERE IS

SOMETHING WORKING ON IT.

MARTIN LUTHER WAS CONCERNED

ABOUT SALVATION BY GRACE, HE

DIDN'T LIKE JAMES AT ALL.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME

WE HAD.

PAT: THANKS FOR THE QUESTIONS

WE APPRECIATE IT.

IN PERU, A YOUNG COUPLE WORKED

15-HOUR DAYS.

EVEN WITH TWO JOBS THEY BARELY

MADE ENOUGH TO FEED THE FAMILY.

SO THEIR SEVEN-YEAR-OLD SON

BEGAN TO PRAY AND SAID GOD HELP

MY FAMILY.

HERE IS HOW PEOPLE LIKE YOU

BECAME AN ANSWER TO THAT LITTLE

BOY'S PRAYER.

ADRIAN IS ONLY SEVEN YEARS

OLD, VERY MATURE FOR HIS AGE.

HE KNOWS ALL TOO WELL THE

CHALLENGES FACING HIS PARENTS.

MY DAD WORKS AS A DRIVER'S

ASSISTA

ASSISTANT.

MY MOM SELLS BREAKFAST POR

RIDGE.

ADRIAN'S DAD NEVER FINISHED

SCHOOL AND LOW PAYING JOB ONLY

ONE HE COULD FIND.

HE WORKS 15 HOURS A DAY AND ONLY

EARNS $10.

MY LITTLE BROTHER WAS SICK

AND DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO BUY

MEDICINE.

ADRIAN IS THE ONLY CHRISTIAN

IN HIS FAMILY.

HE GOES TO A BIBLE CLUB EVERY

SATURDAY NEAR HIS HOME SO HE

BEGAN TO PRAY FOR HIS FAMILY.

I PRAYED, DEAR GOD, MAKE

ENOUGH SO I CAN EAT AND WE CAN

KEEP GOING TO SCHOOL.

TO HELP THE FAMILY, OPERATION

BLESSING SET UP A SMALL STORE

RIGHT NEXT TO THEIR HOME, HERE

THEY SELL NOTEBOOKS, SCHOOL

SUPPLIES AND OTHER HOUSE HOLD

ITEMS.

ADRIAN LOVES HELPING HIS MOM IN

THE SCHOOL.

THANKS, OPERATION BLESSING

FOR MAKING MY FAMILY.

PAT: YOU ARE AN ANSWER TO

PRAYER, WE CAN'T HELP THEM ALL.

WE CAN HELP THE ONES WE CAN

TOUCH.

MANY THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WE CAN HELP.

IF EVERYBODY THAT WAS A

CHRISTIAN, THERE WOULD BE A HUGE

ALLEVIATION OF POVERTY

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

WE ARE DOING WHAT WE CAN.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE.

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST $.65 A DAY, COST OF A

CAN OF SODA POP WHAT IS IT?

TERRY: PROBABLY $1.50.

SOMETIMES $2 FOR A LARGE.

PAT: SO $.65 IS NOTHING.

THAT IS $20 A MONTH WE CAN

CHANGE THE WORLD IF ENOUGH

PEOPLE DO IT.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING.

OUR PRODUCER EDIE WASSERBURG --

WE TALKED ABOUT ABOUT THE

QUESTIONS PEOPLE HAD ON THEIR

MINDS, WHAT WOULD I ASK GOD, YOU

HAVE THE ANSWERS HERE, THIS DVD

IS CALLED "HOW SHALL WE NOW

LIVE?"

TERRY IS GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT

IT.

TERRY: BILL AND WANITA SAY

IT WAS EXCELLENT, MARVELOUS,

VERY WELL DONE.

WE WATCHED IT AND LEARNED A LOT

FROM IT.

THAT IS THE REASON WE OFFER

THESE TEACHINGS.

IT IS TO HELP YOU GROW IN YOUR

SCRIPTURE.

PAT: ANSWERS PEOPLE ARE

ASKING.

PLEASE GO TO YOUR PHONES AND

CALL 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

TERRY: UP NEXT, SHE IS AN

AWARD WINNING AUTHOR AND HER

"JUST GIVE ME JESUS"

REVIVALS HAVE SPANNED THE GLOBE.

ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ JOINS US AFTER

THIS.

1 1 1 1 1 9 9 9 = = = = = = =

TERRY: ALL OF US HAVE BEEN

WOUNDED, HURT OR NEGLIGENTED BY

OTHER PEOPLE.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN WOUNDED BY

GOD'S PEOPLE, PEOPLE IN THE

CHURCH?

EVEN BILLY GRAHAM'S DAUGHTER

FEELS YOUR PAIN.

TAKE A LOOK.

ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ HAS BEEN

PROCLAIMING GOD'S WORD AROUND

THE WORLD FOR 30 YEARS.

HER BELOVED FATHER BILLY GRAHAM

HAS PREACHED TO MORE PEOPLE THAN

ANYONE IN HISTORY.

LIKE HER DAD, ANNE IS ALSO A

BEST SELLING AUTHOR "JUST GIVE

ME JESUS"

DRAW PEOPLE BY THE THOUSANDS IN

HER BOOK "WOUNDED BY GOD'S

PEOPLE"

ANNE SHARES AND OFFERS ADVISE OF

HEALING WOUNDS OF A BROKEN

HEART.

TERRY: WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB" ANNE GRAHAM LOTZ.

SO GOOD TO BE HERE.

THANK YOU.

[APPLAUSE]

TERRY: PEOPLE WOULD EXPECT

YOU WOULD BE TREATED LIKE

ROYALTY AND NEVER A PROBLEM

ESPECIALLY IN THE CHURCH,

"WOUNDED BY GOD'S PEOPLE"

IS BEING HURT IN THE CHURCH BY

THE PEOPLE OF GOD.

THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU.

NOT JUST PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH

BUT BELIEVERS.

THE REASONS THOSE HURT THE MOST,

YOU HAVE TRUSTED AND FEEL SAFE

AND REJECT YOU OR BETRAY OR

SLANDER OR LIE TO YOU, IT HURTS

MORE.

WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL EXPERIENCES

LIKE THAT AFTER EACH ONE MY

HUSBAND AND I LEFT.

FOR A YEAR WE DIDN'T GO TO

CHURCH, THAT IS TWICE IN OUR

LIVES WHAT A CALL A BELIEVER IN

EXILE.

TERRY: TALK ABOUT THAT, THAT

IS NOT AN UNCOMMON HAPPENING

THAT SOMEONE IS WOUNDED IN

CHURCH AND SO DEEPLY HURT.

THEY DON'T FEEL SAFE GOING

ANYWHERE.

IT IS AMAZING.

I THINK GEORGE BARNA CAME OUT

WITH RESEARCH, MAJORITY OF

PEOPLE NOT IN CHURCH BECAUSE

THEY WERE HURT BY SOMEBODY IN A

CHURCH.

MANY BELIEVERS IN EXILE.

WHEN THAT HAPPENED TO US, IT

DIDN'T DAMAGE MY FAITH, IT MADE

ME FEEL CLOSER TO GOD.

JESUS UNDERSTANDS THAT KIND OF

PAIN.

HE WAS REJECTED.

IT CAUSED ME TO LOVE THE LORD

MORE AND MADE ME WANTS TO KNOW

GOD FOR WHO HE IS, NOT AS PEOPLE

REFLECT HIM.

SOMETIMES THE CHURCH GIVES A

TARNISHED REFLECTION OF HIM.

I WANTED TO MAKE HIM KNOWN,

TERRY, IN A WAY THAT WOULD DRAW

PEOPLE TO HIM, NOT DRIVE THEM

AWAY.

TERRY: THEY SAY THE THINGS

THAT DON'T HURT US MAKE US

BITTER OR BETTER.

WOUNDED PEOPLE ARE WONDER

WOUNDERS.

IT IS LIKE DRINKING THE

POISON HOPING THE OTHER PERSON

DIES.

IT WOUNDS YOUR SPIRIT AND YOUR

SPIRITS ARE SHRIVELLED.

TELL GOD YOU ARE HURT.

IT IS A CHOICE TO FORGIVE THE

PERSON AND RECEIVE GOD AND REACH

OUT TO THE PERSON.

DO SOMETHING TO BLESS THEM.

YOUR SPIRIT RISES ABOVE IT.

WHAT I HAVE HAD TO GUARD, WHEN I

AM WOUNDED, NATURAL REACTION IS

TO HURT BACK.

TERRY: THIS REACTION.

[LAUGHTER].

IT BEGINS A CYCLE OF PAIN I

TRACE IN THE BOOK IN HAGGAR'S

LIFE.

SHE HAD ABRAHAM'S BABY.

THERE IS A SERIES OF WOUNDING.

SHE BECAME A WOUNDERS.

AND SARAH THE SAME, IT GOES

NOWHERE.

WE HAVE TO BREAK THAT CYCLE.

TERRY: HERE YOU ARE, PEOPLE

HAVE SUCH HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF

YOU, ANNE.

I KNOW YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED THE

PAIN OF BEING JUDGED BY PEOPLE,

CRITICIZED BY PEOPLE, YOU HAD A

SON WHO WENT THROUGH A DIVORCE,

TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND HOW

YOU HANDLED THAT?

YOU HANDLE IT BY GOING TO THE

LORD.

I LOVE THE PSALMS, DAVID CRIES

OUT AND HE WAS WOUNDED BY PEOPLE

OF FAITH, ALSO.

BIBLE IS A WONDERFUL SOURCE OF

COMFORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT AND

SOMETIMES CONVICTION.

AT ONE POINT, SOMEONE WOUNDED ME

SO DEVASTATINGLY, IT WAS CRUEL

AND I WAS STUNNED.

I COULDN'T GET OVER IT.

AS I BEGAN TO PRAY, WHY IS IT

SOMETHING THAT I DID THAT

PROVOKED IT.

GOD REVEALED AN ATTITUDE IN MY

LIFE I HAD USED AS I DEALT WITH

HER THAT BUILT IN HER OVER TIME

UNTIL SHE EXPLODED IN THIS

WOUNDING WAY.

I HAD TO TELL GOD I WAS SORRY

FOR MY ATTITUDE, TELL HER I WAS

SORRY.

THERE WAS A FORMAL

RECONCILIATION.

THERE IS NOT A WARM

RELATIONSHIP.

I PRAY THAT WILL COME IN TIME.

SOMETIMES THINGS TAKE TIME.

TERRY: IT IS HAVING THAT

ATTITUDE OF SEARCH ME.

DAVID SAID IN PSALM 139.

HE WANTED GOD TO SEARCH HIS

HEART.

TERRY: IT TOOK YOU FOUR

YEARS TO WRITE THIS BOOK.

EVEN IN THE WRITING OF THE BOOK

YOU WENT THROUGH A HURTFUL

SITUATION, IS THERE ONE TIME YOU

WERE WOUNDED THAT REALLY STANDS

OUT?

THE SITUATION YOU JUST

MENTIONED?

WHAT STANDS OUT AS THE HARDEST

THING YOU HAD TO DEAL WITH?

I SORT OF PUT THEM IN THE

PAST, TERRY.

THEY DON'T STAND OUT TO ME

BECAUSE THEY ARE UNDER THE

BLOOD.

TERRY: AMEN.

WHEN WE WERE REJECTED BY A

CHURCH, I THOUGHT WE WOULD DIE

THERE.

MY CHILDREN WERE BAPTIZED.

WHEN THEY VOTED TO REMOVE MY

HUSBAND AND REJECTED US TO THE

SOUND OF APPLAUSE WAS AMAZING.

WALKING TO THE PARKING LOT, I

WANTED TO KNOW GOD AS HE WAS AND

NOT LIKE THE CHURCH REFLECTED

HIM AND IN A WAY OTHER PEOPLE

WOULD LOVE HIM.

GOD CAN ALLOW WOUNDS BECAUSE

THEY CAN BRING A BLESSING.

IF YOU'LL BRING IT TO GOD.

HE MOVED US INTO ANOTHER CHURCH

OR REDIRECTED MY MINISTRY.

SOMETIMES THE WOUNDING AND MY

RESPONSE IS WHAT HE USES TO

DIRECT ME.

THE CROSS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE,

ISN'T IT?

JESUS WAS WOUNDED IN AN ULTIMATE

WAY.

LOOK AT THE GLORY AND

RESURRECTION.

TERRY: THAT IS THE TAKE AWAY

OF "WOUNDED BY GOD'S PEOPLE"

WE CAN KNOW HIM WELL.

A DEAR FRIEND SAID AFTER THE

RESURRECTION, JESUS WAS SHOWING

THEM WOUNDS CAN HEAL QUICKLY.

IT IS A JOURNEY.

IT IS A PROCESS.

TERRY: HAVE TO ASK YOU

QUICKLY, IS YOUR DAD DOING WELL?

HE IS.

HE'LL BE 95 NOVEMBER 7TH.

HE HAS THE BIG MY HOPE PROJECT

GOING.

IT IS GOING TO BE THRILLING.

TERRY: TELL HIM WE LOVE HIM.

I WILL.

TERRY: GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HEAR.

PAT?

PAT: THANKS, TERRY.

TOMORROW WE HAVE A MUSLIM DUBBED

A MENACE TO SOCIETY.

HE BECOMES A CHRISTIAN BEHIND

BARS.

JEREMIAH 30: FOR I WILL RESTORE

HEALTH TO YOU AND HEAL YOU OF

YOUR WOUNDS, SAYS THE LORD!

THAT IS ALL THE TIME WE HAVE GOT

FROM ALL OF US THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON SAYING GOOD-BYE, WE'LL

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

[APPLAUSE]
