Gordon: ONE HUSBAND

HEARS SHOCKING NEWS.

I HAD NO REASON, YOU

KNOW, TO DOUBT HER LOVE FOR

ME.

EVERY HAPPY MEMORY OF 17

YEARS OF MARRIAGE WAS GONE.

Gordon: FIND OUT HOW HE

FORGAVE HIS WIFE AND BECAME

A FATHER TO HER CHILD.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

EVERY YEAR, OVER TWO MILLION

COUPLES MARRY IN AMERICA.

DECLEARING THEIDECLARING

THEIR LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER,

AS LONG AS THEY BOTH SHALL

LIVE.

Terry: THEY SEEMED LIKE

THE PERFECT COUPLE, RAISING

THEIR CHILDREN TOGETHER.

AND THEN GRADUALLY, AUDREY

STARTED SPENDING TIME WITH A

MAN FROM CHURCH.

AND THEIR FAIRY TALE

MARRIAGE BECAME BOB'S WORST

NIGHTMARE.

WE HAD THE KIND OF

MARRIAGE PEOPLE WOULD LOOK

AT AND SAY, OKAY, I WANT A

MARRIAGE LIKE THAT WHEN I

GROW UP.

WE LOVED EACH OTHER, WE

LOVED OUR CHILDREN, WE LOVED

EVERYTHING WE DID.

Reporter: BOB AND

AUDREY MIZER MET IN BIBLE

COLLEGE.

WE WOULD TALK ABOUT

EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME,

JUST SHARING OUR LIVES AND

DREAMS AND HOPES TOGETHER.

I WAS COMPLETELY ENTHRALLED

BY HER.

I FELT SO SAFE WITH BOB

BECAUSE HE LOVED GOD.

I FELT LIKE I COULD BE WITH

HIM FOREVER.

Reporter: THEY MARRIED,

STARTED A FAMILY, AND DOVE

INTO MINISTRY WORK.

THEY HAD BIG DREAMS FOR THE

FUTURE.

WITH OUR DESIRE TO BE

WORLD-CHANGERS, WHAT YOU'VE

GOT TO DO IS WORK.

WE WERE PASTORING A

CHURCH, AND ALSO WORKING FOR

MY MOM AND DAD IN THEIR TV

MINISTRY.

I HAD NO IDEA HOW HARD IT

WOULD BE.

Reporter: A FEW MONTHS

INTO THE MARRIAGE, AUDREY

REALIZED THAT BOB'S

COMMUNICATION STYLE WAS

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

HE COULD EASILY CONFRONT

ME IF SOMETHING WAS WRONG.

SO I MADE A VOW IN MY HEART

THAT I WAS GOING TO DO

EVERYTHING POSSIBLE SO THAT

HE WOULD NEVER YELL AT ME

AGAIN.

I BECAME THE ULTIMATE

PERFORMER AND THE ULTIMATE

PLEASER.

Reporter: AND THE HARD

WORK OF MINISTRY TOOK A TOLL

ON AUDREY, WHO WAS AFRAID TO

SPEAK UP.

THE BUSYNESS GOT SO

TIRING AND SO EXHAUSTING, SO

I REMEMBER STUFFING DOWN

THOSE FEELINGS BECAUSE I

KNEW BOB LOVED THE CHURCH.

SO I COULD NEVER TELL HIM

HOW I REALLY FELT.

Reporter: THIS

CONTINUED FOR YEARS.

AND THEN A FAMILY FRIEND

FROM CHURCH BEGAN SPENDING

MORE TIME WIN THE MIZERS.

HE WAS EXTREMELY

ENERGETIC AND FAITHFUL AND

LOVED TO PLAY WITH OUR

KIDS.

HE DIDN'T HAVE A FAMILY.

HE REMINDED ME OF BEING A

KID AGAIN.

WE WOULD INVITE HIM TO BE

WITH HOLIDAYS WITH US AND SO

FORTH.

Reporter: BUT THIS NEW

FAMILY FRIEND BEGAN GIVING

ATTENTION TO AUDREY.

HE WO WOULD OVERLY FLIRT

WITH ME.

YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL.

I WANT TO FIND SOMEONE WHO

CAN BE EVEN JUST HALF AS

BEAUTIFUL OF YOU.

Reporter: OVER TIME,

THEIR RELATIONSHIP GREW

CLOSER.

I KNEW SOMETHING HAD

CHANGED IN MY HEART WHEN I

KNEW HE WAS COMING OVER AND

I WANTED TO LOOK REALLY GOOD

WHEN HE GOT THERE.

AND I FELT LIKE I WAS IN

CONTROL.

I FELT THAT I COULD HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH A YOUNG

GUY IN A CHURCH AND JUST

HELP HIM OUT.

AND I HAD NO REASON, YOU

KNOW, TO DOUBT HER LOVE FOR

ME.

I MEAN, WE WERE STILL

EXTREMELY INTIMATE WITH EACH

OTHER, LOVING WITH EACH

OTHER.

SO I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS

FINE.

Reporter: BUT AUDREY'S

DESIRE FOR THE OTHER MAN

GREW STRONGER.

YOU KNOW, OUR SHOULDERS

WOULD BUMP, OR HIS HAND

WOULD TOUCH MINE, AND I

STARTED TO NOTICE MY

REACTION, OH, THAT FELT GOOD

THAT HE TOUCHED ME.

I REALLY TOLD MYSELF I CAN

HAVE IT ALL.

THIS RELATIONSHIP WON'T

AFFECT THE REST OF MY LIFE.

AND I BEGAN TO NOTICE MYSELF

LYING SO I COULD BE ALONE

WITH HIM.

I DOVE IN, AND I SAID, I'VE

GONE THIS FAR ANYWAY, I'M

JUST GOING TO DO THIS.

THAT'S WHEN IT BECAME

SEXUAL.

Reporter: THE AFFAIR

CONTINUED FOR THREE WEEKS.

I JUST LIED TO THE PEOPLE

I LOVE THE MOST IN ORDER TO

GET AWAY WITH THIS GUY AND

BE INAPPROPRIATE SEXUALLY

AND HAVE AN AFFAIR.

THIS IS NOT ME.

Reporter: AUDREY

REALIZED SHE COULDN'T

CONTINUE LOVING THE DOUBLE

LIFE AND ENDED THE AFFAIR.

NOW SHE HAD TO TELL HER

HUSBAND OF 17 YEARS WHAT SHE

HAD DONE.

I WAS SCARED OUT OF MY

MIND.

I WAS SHAKING.

IF IT CAME DOWN TO A CHOICE

OF WHO I WOULD CHOOSE, THERE

WAS NEVER A QUESTION IN MY

MIND THAT I WANTED MY

HUSBAND AND MY KIDS.

I HAVEN'T CONFRONTED HIM FOR

17 YEARS OF LITTLE THINGS,

AND NOW I'M GOING TO TELL

HIM THE MOST BETRAYING

MESSAGE I COULD EVER

IMAGINE.

I SAT VERY CLOSE TO HIM AND

WHISPERED IN HIS EAR AND

SAID, I'VE DONE SOMETHING

EXTREMELY INAPPROPRIATE.

I SAW JUST EXTREME RAGE AND

HATRED COME INTO HIS EYES.

THIS WASN'T JUST A LITTLE

MISTAKE.

THIS WASN'T JUST A LITTLE

OOPS OR A HICCUP.

I WANTED TO PUNCH HOLES IN

WALLS, SLAM DOORS, EXPRESS

SOME ANGER OR RAGE.

I FELT SO MUCH SHAME FOR

WHAT I DID AND SO MUCH DEEP

REGRET.

ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS

GET HER FIXED.

SHE IS THE PROBLEM.

SHE HAD THE AFFAIR.

EVERY HAPPY MEMORY OF 17

YEARS OF MARRIAGE WAS GONE.

MY HEAD WAS SCREAMING WITH

WORDS, SHE DOESN'T LOVE

YOU.

SHE HAS NEVER LOVED YOU.

YOUR MARRIAGE HAS BEEN A

FARCE.

Reporter: BOB CALLED A

MARRIAGE COUNSELLOR WHO HAD

BEEN A GUEST ON THEIR

TELEVISION PROGRAM.

THE COUPLE FLEW TO PHOENIX

THE NEXT DAY TO MEET WITH

HIM.

HE SAID THIS TO ME, HE

SAID, BOB, YOU'RE

SPIRITUALLY LAZY.

I'VE GOT DAILY CHRISTIAN

TELEVISION, I'M PASTORING A

CHURCH, I'M A FATHER, I'M A

COUNSELLOR -- I'VE GOT ALL

OF THESE ACTIVITIES GOING ON

AND YOU CALL ME SPIRITUALLY

LAZY?

AND HE SAYS, AUDREY,

ANYONE WHO DOES WHAT YOU DID

DOES NOT RESPECT YOUR

HUSBAND.

AND HE SAID, BOB, WHAT'S

DONE IS DONE.

WHAT I NEED TO KNOW IS

WHETHER OR NOT YOU WILL

BECOME THE MAN OF GOD THAT

YOU NEED TO BE TO KEEP YOUR

FAMILY TOGETHER?

BEFORE YOU GO TO BED, YOU

WILL GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES

AND YOU WILL PRAY WITH EACH

OTHER.

I CAN'T REMEMBER THE LAST

TIME WE HAD PRAYED WITH EACH

OTHER.

THE ONLY WORDS WE COULD GET

OUT WERE GOD, WE NEED YOU.

AND WE CRIED AND WE CRIED.

EVERY PART OF OUR

RELATIONSHIP HAD TO COME TO

A NEW LEVEL OF

TRANSPARENCY.

THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR ANY

SECRET.

Reporter: BUT ONE BIG

SECRET WAS YET TO BE

REVEALED.

A FEW MONTHS LATER THEY

RECEIVED NEWS FROM THE

DOCTOR, AUDREY WAS

PREGNANT.

I HAD A VASECTOMY, SO I

KNEW IT WASN'T ME.

HE MUST HAVE SEEN THE FEAR

ALL OVER OUR FACES BECAUSE

HE IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED THAT

STATEMENT WITH THE QUESTION:

DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE THE

PREGNANCY?

AND I IMMEDIATELY ANSWERED

YES.

WITHOUT A DOUBT.

I WAS SCARED OUT OF MY

MIND.

AND YET THAT WAS THE FIRST

MOMENT I FELT STRENGTH FROM

BOB.

BEFORE EVERYTHING INSIDE

OF ME WANTED TO PUNISH HER.

NOW I RECOGNIZE THAT SHE IS

CARRYING A BABY, AND THAT

SHE NEEDED MY HELP.

THIS BABY IS GOING TO NEED

PARENTS.

I WANT TO BE THAT DAD.

Reporter: BOB AND

AUDREY RESIGNED FROM THEIR

POSITIONS, MOVED TO PHOENIX

AND TOLD THEIR CHILDREN WHAT

WAS GOING ON.

WE KNEW IT WAS A BIRACIAL

SITUATION AND THAT OUR

CHILDREN NEEDED TO KNOW.

I WAS SO SCARED MY KIDS

WOULD BE MESSED UP.

BECAUSE I'M ONE OF THOSE

MOMS THAT I LOVE MY KIDS

MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF.

THEY WALKED IN SEEING A

MOM AND DAD SITTING ON THE

FLOOR CRYING.

I SPOKE TO THEM ABOUT HOW I

LOVED THEIR MOM AND WE'RE A

FAMILY AND WE BELONG

TOGETHER, AND THAT I'M NOT

GOING ANYWHERE.

AND WITH HER HELD IN MY ARMS

AND COVERED, I LOOKED AT

THEM AND I SAID, YOU'RE

GOING TO HAVE A BABY

BROTHER.

Reporter: FIVE MONTHS

LATER, BOB AND AUDREY RUSHED

TO THE DELIVERY ROOM.

IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST

BEAUTIFUL DAYS OF MY LIFE.

THIS LITTLE BOY WAS NOTHING

BUT A GIFT, AN ABSOLUTE

GIFT.

WHEN OUR SON WAS BORN, I

GAVE HIM MY NAME, ROBERT.

MIDDLE NAME THEODORE, AND

THEN MIZER, BECAUSE I DON'T

WANT MY SON TO EVER QUESTION

ONE DAY IN HIS LIFE WHO'S

BOY HE IS.

THEODORE MEANS DIVINE GIFT.

Reporter: 10 YEARS

LATER, BOB AND AUDREY'S

RELATIONSHIP IS STRONGER

THAN EVER.

I RELATIONSHIP BECAME

DYNAMIC, LIKE IT NEVER WAS

BEFORE.

BECAUSE NOW I'M BEING HONEST

AND HE IS BEING HONEST.

THERE NEEDED TO BE A

TRANSPARENCY AND VIEWCIALTD

VULNERABLEABILITY TO BE

KNOWN TO THE OTHER PERSON.

IF WE CAN GET THROUGH THE

FEARS THAT KEEP YOU FROM

COMMUNICATING, AND THE FEARS

THAT KEEP YOU IN THIS

DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIP,

AND START HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH NO

SECRETS, THERE IS NOTHING

MORE FUN THAN THAT.

OUR LITTLE ROBERT IS OUR NUT

CAKE.

HE IS SO MUCH FUN.

SO FULL OF PERSONALITY, AND

NEVER A DULL MOMENT.

AND THOSE THREE OLDER KIDS

LOVE HIM WITH EVERY PART OF

THEIR BEING.

IF YOU SEE THEM ALL

TOGETHER, THERE IS SO MUCH

LAUGHTER.

FOR THE EXTENT THAT I

HAVE EXPERIENCED HIS LOVE

AND HIS GRACE, I'M THE MOST

THANKFUL PERSON YOU'LL EVER

MEET.

I DON'T GET WHAT I

DESERVE BECAUSE O.

BUT BECAUSE HE TOOK MY SIN,

AND BECAUSE HE LIVES INSIDE

OF ME, I DON'T GET WHAT I

DESERVE.

I GET WHAT HE DESERVES.

THAT'S AMAZING LOVE.

Gordon: THAT IS AMAZING

LOVE.

WE DON'T GET WHAT WE

DESERVE.

AND ALL OF US DESERVE THE

PUNISHMENT FOR SIN.

AND THAT IS TO BE AWAY FROM

GOOD FOR ALL ETERNITY.

BUT HE LOVES US, AND HE

SAYS, I DON'T WANT THAT.

I DON'T WANT A FUTURE

WITHOUT YOU.

I WANT YOU TO BE WITH ME FOR

ALL ETERNITY.

AND HE SAYS IT WITH OUT

STRETCHED ARMS.

AND HE SAYS, I'LL TAKE THE

PENALTY.

I'LL PAY THE PRICE.

I'LL GO TO THE CROSS.

AND I'LL GET VICTORY OVER

DEATH, OVER SIN, SO THAT ALL

WHO BELIEVE CAN BE WITH ME.

IT'S AN AMAZING STORY, AND

IT'S AMAZINGLY GOOD NEWS.

NOW, WITH AUDREY AND BOB,

IT'S VERY EASY TO BE

JUDGEMENTAL, ISN'T IT?

AS YOU SEE THE STORY UNWIND,

DON'T YOU SAY, DON'T YOU SEE

THIS COMING?

DON'T YOU SEE THE

CONSEQUENCES?

WELL, THE ANSWER IS, WE

DON'T.

AND NONE OF US DID.

WHICH IS WHY JESUS SAID FROM

THE CROSS, FATHER, FORGIVE

THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT

THEY DO.

WE DON'T APPRECIATE THE

CONSEQUENCES OF SIN.

AND WE THINK THAT SOMEHOW OR

ANOTHER WE KNOW BETTER, OR

THIS TIME IT IS GOING TO BE

DIFFERENT.

OR WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE

THESE HORRIBLE

CONSEQUENCES.

GOD DIDN'T GIVE US THESE

RULES TO KEEP US FROM GOOD

THINGS.

HE GAVE US THE RULES TO KEEP

US OUT OF SOME VERY BAD

THINGS.

AND THE GOOD NEWS IS WHEN WE

VIOLATE THEM, AND IT IS A

VIOLATION -- WHEN WE DO

THAT, HE IS THERE WITH OPEN

ARMS TO SAY I WON'T CONDEMN

YOU.

BUT THEN HE ADDS, JUST AS HE

DID TO THE WOMAN CAUGHT IN

ADULTERY, CAUGHT IN THE VERY

ACT, AND ALL OF THE

RELIGIOUS LEADERS WERE

ASKING HIM TO PUT OUT THE

JUDGMENT, STONE HER TO

DEATH, HE SAYS TO HER, I

DON'T CONDEMN YOU.

GO AND SIN NO MORE.

THE PROBLEM WITH SIN IS IT

BECOMES HABIT-FORMING.

AND YOU CAN GET INTO A

LIFESTYLE OF IT SO THAT

YOU'RE CONSCIENCE GETS

SEARED AND YOU NO LONGER

RECOGNIZE THAT IT'S WRONG.

THAT IT'S LEADING YOU INTO

DESTRUCTION.

THAT IT'S DESTROYING THE

PEOPLE AROUND YOU.

AND IT'S DESTROYING YOUR

FUTURE.

YOU DON'T REALIZE IT.

BUT THAT'S WHY THE

ADMONITION, I'LL FORGIVE,

BUT GO AND SIN NO MORE.

IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF THIS

IS WHAT YOU WANT, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS TURN AWAY FROM

THE THINGS THAT YOU KNOW ARE

WRONG.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN

TO HIM AND SAY, FATHER, I

NEED YOU.

THAT WAS BOB AND AUDREY'S

PRAYER TOGETHER, THEIR FIRST

PRAYER.

THEY COULDN'T PRAY ANYTHING

MORE THAN I NEED YOU.

WHENYOU TURN AN TURN AND

YOU TURN THE HIM, HE'LL COME

IN.

DON'T THINK FROM WILLPOWER

YOU'RE GOING TO GET THE

VICTORY.

IT IS NOT THAT WAY.

IT IS FROM THE INNER MOST

CHANGE IN YOUR BEING.

THE RESTORATION OF YOUR LOVE

AND YOUR JOY AND YOUR PEACE,

AND IT ONLY COMES FROM HIM.

HE IS THE SOURCE OF

SALVATION.

HE IS SALVATION.

AND WHEN HE COMES TO YOU,

HE'LL GIVE IT.

AND HE'LL ADD TO IT.

HE'LL ADD RESTORATION.

HE'LL ADD JUSTIFICATION,

JUST AS IF YOU NEVER DID

IT.

AND HE IS ABLE TO DO THAT,

IF YOU JUST CRY OUT TO HIM.

AND SAY, FATHER, I NEED

YOU.

NOT MY WAY ANYMORE, BUT YOUR

WAY.

AND IF YOU DO THAT WITH ALL

OF YOUR HEART, HE'LL ANSWER

YOU.

SO IF YOU WANT THIS, BOW

YOUR HEAD WITH ME.

PRAY A VERY SIMPLE PRAYER.

AND LET JESUS SHOW UP FOR

YOU AND SAY, I DON'T CONDEMN

YOU.

I CAME TO SET YOU FREE.

I CAME THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE

LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE

ABUNDANTLY.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, BOW

YOUR HEAD, CLOSE YOUR EYES.

AND LET'S COME TO THE

SAVIOR.

AND LET HIM DO FOR YOU WHAT

HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU, AND

YOU KNOW THE THINGS THAT

I'VE DONE WRONG.

AND, JESUS, I WANT TO TURN

FROM THEM.

I WANT TO LEAVE THEM ALL

BEHIND, AND I TURN TO YOU.

AND ASK THAT YOU CLEANSE

ME.

THAT YOU MAKE ME NEW.

THAT YOU RESTORE TO ME JOY

AND PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

IN YOU.

AND, JESUS, I WANT TO BE

WITH YOU.

I WANT TO FOLLOW YOU.

I WANT YOUR WILL TO BE DONE

IN MY LIFE.

SO HEAR MY PRAYER.

ANSWER IT.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOU SURROUND THEM

WITH YOUR PRESENCE, THAT THE

ANGELS WOULD SING OVER THEM

AND REJOICE THAT THEY HAVE

COME HOME.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I'VE

GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU.

IT'S A FREE PACKET.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND THERE IS A C.D.

TEACHING.

COMING UP, A CHILD GOES ON A

SEARCH FOR GOD.

FIND OUT WHEN SHE FOUND HIM,

AFTER THIS.

Terry: CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" WAS ONE OF THE

FIRST CHRISTIAN PROGRAMS

BROADCAST IN THE FORMER

SOVIET UNION.

AND NOW THESE CHILDREN OF

"SUPERBOOK" HAVE GROWN UP,

AND THEY'RE PASSING ITS

LEGACY ON TO THEIR KIDS.

Reporter: YANA ALLEN

REMEMBERS HER CHILDHOOD IN

UKRAINE, RIGHT AFTER THE

FALL OF COMMUNISM.

THERE SHE SAW "SUPERBOOK"

PROGRAM FOR THE FIRST TIME.

THIS CARTOON STARTED

COMING ON, AND IT WAS SO

BRIGHT AND COLORFUL.

WE WERE GLUED TO THE TV.

Reporter: YANA WAS

EAGER TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

JESUS, SO SHE WROTE A LETTER

TO CBN IN THE UKRAINE, AND

RECEIVED A BIBLE IN THE

MAIL.

I DIDN'T REALLY KNOW WHAT

TO DO WITH IT.

I KNEW IT WAS REALLY

PRECIOUS AND POWERFUL AND

REALLY IMPORTANT, SO I KEPT

IT UNDER MY PILLOW.

AND SOMETIMES I WOULD PULL

IT OUT AND LOOK AT IT, AND

EVEN KISS IT, AND PUT IT

BACK.

I WAS SO EXCITED TO GET IT

BECAUSE I NEVER HELD A BIBLE

BEFORE IN MY LIFE IN MY

HANDS.

Reporter: YANA BEGAN

ATTENDING CHURCH, DESPITE

HER FAMILY'S OBJECTIONS.

I HAD A REALLY GOOD

FRIEND AT THE CHURCH.

I WAS SAYING TO HER I DON'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT.

SHE SAID OPEN THE BIBLE, PUT

YOUR FINGER ON A VERSE, ANY

VERSE, AND THIS IS WHAT GOD

WANTS YOU TO HEAR.

AND HE WILL TAKE CARE OF

IT.

Reporter: YANA TRIED IT

AND FOUND ISAIAH 55.

"CALL ON HIM WHILE HE IS

NEAR."

I JUST FELL ON MY FACE AND I

ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO MY

LIFE.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT YOU HAVE

TO PRAY SOME KIND OF SPECIAL

PRAYER, BUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

HAD LED ME TO HIM.

I KNEW FOR SURE THAT GOD IS

IN ME NOW, AND I AM SAVED,

AND I AM FORGIVEN, AND I AM

REDEEMED.

AND I WAS EXCITED.

HE WAS THAT JESUS THAT I

KNEW FROM THE "SUPERBOOK"

CARTOON.

Reporter: IN 2002, SHE

MET MICHAEL A ALLEN, AND

THE TWO MARRIED AND BEGAN

THEIR NEW LIFE TOGETHER IN

AMERICA.

MICHAEL AND YANA CBN

PARTNERS, AND THEY ARE

EXCITED ABOUT THE

"SUPERBOOK" AND SHARE IT NOW

WITH THEIR CHILDREN.

ONE THING ABOUT CBN THAT

MAKES ME WANT TO SUPPORT

THEM OVER AND ABOVE OUR

TITHE IS THE MINISTRY THEY

DO AROUND THE WORLD.

WHAT BETTER WAY TO REACH

CHILDREN THAN A CARTOON.

JUST THINK ABOUT IT, 16

YEARS AGO, 20 YEARS AGO,

THAT LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS

WATCHING THE CARTOON NOW IS

ABLE TO SUPPORT IT.

Terry: IT'S AN AMAZING

THING TO SEE HOW THIS HAS

CARRIED ON THROUGH

GENERATIONS, WITH THE NEW

VERSION OF "SUPERBOOK."

BRAND NEW, AWESOME QUALITY.

PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT

IT.

IT IS GOING TO GO AROUND THE

WORLD.

IT IS ALL TAKEN FROM THE

WORD OF GOD.

AND JUST AS THAT GENERATION

GREW UP WATCHING THE

ORIGINAL "SUPERBOOK," THERE

ARE KIDS TODAY WHO ARE GOING

TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE LOVE

OF GOD BECAUSE OF THE NEW

"SUPERBOOK."

AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF

MAKING THAT HAPPEN.

OUR GOAL IS TO SEND IT TO

ALL OF THE NATIONS OF THE

WORLD SO THAT CHILDREN

EVERYWHERE CAN KNOW THE

STORY OF JESUS CHRIST.

POSITIVE CACAN KNOW THE

LOVE OF GOD, CAN BE FILLED

THEMSELVES WITH THE SAME

KNOWLEDGE THAT SHE FOUND

THROUGH THE ORIGINAL

"SUPERBOOK."

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A

PART OF THAT, CALL US RIGHT

NOW.

SUPPORT WHAT WE'RE DOING

WITH "SUPERBOOK."

IT WILL BE TRANSLATED INTO

ALL KINDS OF LANGUAGES SO

CHILDREN WILL HEAR IT IN

THEIR OWN NATIVE LANGUAGE.

OUR NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-888-777-1999.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

CBN.COM.

THIS IS IN PROGRESS RIGHT

NOW.

WE HAVE HOW MANY SEGMENTS

NOW, GORDON?

Gordon: 16 HAVE BEEN

FINISHED, AND WE'RE ON OUR

WAY TO 104, LORD WILLING.

Terry: AWESOME.

Gordon: IF WE GET THAT,

WE'LL HAVE TWO YEARS OF A

PROGRAM THAT CAN BROADCAST.

JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL ONE,

THERE WAS "SUPERBOOK" AND

FLYING HOUSE, AND THAT WAS

104 EPISODES.

IF YOU HAVE TWO YEARS, IT

WILL BROADCAST FOR A VERY

LONG PERIOD OF TIME BECAUSE

THE TELEVISION STATIONS ALL

WANT TO AIR IT.

SO WE'LL BE AIRING THIS,

LORD WILLING, TO 300 MILLION

CHILDREN IN JUST THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS, BUT MY GOAL IS

FOR THIS PROGRAM TO LAST FOR

TWO DECADES, JUST AS THE

FIRST ONE DID.

SO A WHOLE GENERATION WILL

GROW UP KNOWING THE STORIES

OF THE BIBLE.

YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT.

JUST JOIN THE "SUPERBOOK"

D.V.D. CLUB.

1-888-777-1999.

WELL, UP NEXT, DOCTORS ARE

BAFFLED BY A PATIENT'S

CHECKUP.

THEY DID ANOTHER

MAMMOGRAM, AND THEY COULD

FIND NOTHING.

SO I ENDED UP IN ONE DAY

HAVING FOUR MAMMOGRAMS AND

AN ULTRASOUND.

AND THEY COULDN'T FIND

ANYTHING.

Gordon: FIND OUT HOW

SHE BEAT BREAST CANCER,

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: EACH YEAR

NEARLY 200,000 WOMEN IN

AMERICA ARE DIAGNOSED WITH

BREAST CANCER.

CYNTHIA KNOLL THOUGHT SHE

WAS GOING TO BE ONE OF

THEM.

HOWEVER, TWO DAYS AFTER

DOCTORS FOUND A LUMP, IT

TOTALLY DISAPPEARED.

I WASN'T FEELING WELL.

I WAS EXTREMELY TIRED.

AND I SENSED THAT SOMETHING

WAS WRONG.

BUT I WASN'T EXACTLY SURE.

SO I WENT TO THE DOCTOR.

AND SHE WAS EXAMINING ME,

AND SHE FELT SOMETHING IN MY

BREAST.

AND SHE SAID, WE NEED TO

HAVE A MAMMOGRAM.

I SAID, OKAY.

I'LL GO HAVE ONE.

AND I DID.

AND THEY FOUND A THREE

CENTIMETER LUMP IN MY

BREAST.

I WENT TO CHURCH AND I WAS

VERY BURDENED ABOUT IT.

BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID OF

BEING SICK.

I WAS AFRAID OF LEAVING MY

FAMILY.

THE PREACHER SAID THERE IS

SOMEONE HERE THAT HAS CANCER

IN THEIR BREAST, AND YOU

HAVE UNFORGIVENESS.

AND THEN IT WAS JUST, LIKE,

GOD OPENED MY EYES.

THE SCALES WERE JUST REMOVED

FROM MY EYES.

AND I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW, I

DO HAVE UNFORGIVENESS.

AND GOD JUST REVEALED IT TO

ME.

IN A WAY THAT WAS POWERFUL.

AND I WENT TO THE ALTER.

AND I RELEASED IT.

AND I WAS WATCHING CBN, AND

GORDON HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

Gordon: SO RIGHT NOW

CHOOSE TO FORGIVE.

FROM YOUR INNER MOST BEING,

JUST FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE

HURT YOU.

I KNEW THAT WAS JUST A

CONFIRMATION.

I FELT THAT GORDON WAS

SPEAKING TO ME.

IT ALMOST FELT LIKE HE WAS

SAYING MY NAME.

AND I THOUGHT, THANK YOU,

LORD.

THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING

THROUGH GORDON TO ME.

I RECEIVE IT.

ABOUT TWO DAYS LATER, I WENT

BACK AND THEY DID ANOTHER

MAMMOGRAM.

AND THEY COULD FIND

NOTHING.

AND I KNEW I HAD BEEN

HEALED.

SO I ENDED UP IN ONE DAY

HAVING FOUR MAMMOGRAMS AND

AN ULTRASOUND, AND THEY

COULDN'T FIND ANYTHING MANY

AND I KNOW THAT GOD HEALED

ME.

I KNOW HE HEALED ME.

AND I JUST PRAISED HIM FOR

IT.

Gordon: HE SENT HIS

WORD AND HEALED THEIR

DISEASE.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

NOW, WHO IS THE WORD?

THAT'S JESUS.

THE WORD BECOMES FLESH, IT

DWELLS AMONG US, AND HIS

NAME IS JESUS.

AND THAT WORD CAN BECOME

FLESH IN YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

RECEIVE HIM.

AND THEN DO WHAT HE ASKS YOU

TO DO.

NOW, FORGIVENESS,

UNFORGIVENESS CAN BE A

BARRIER.

IT CAN BLOCK THE FLOW OF

FORGIVENESS OF GOD TO YOU.

WE ALL NEED FORGIVENESS.

WHEN WE HOLD ON TO THINGS,

BITTERNESS, HURT, ANGER,

RESENTMENT -- ALL THOSE

THINGS ARE BLOCKS TO THE

FLOW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN

OUR LIVES.

AND OUR BODIES AREN'T MADE

TO HOLD THOSE KINDS OF

EMOTIONS.

MEDICAL SCIENCE IS NOW

LINKING LOTS OF INFLAMMATORY

DISEASES, HEART DISEASE, ALL

OF THE STRESS-RELATED

DISEASES -- LINKING THOSE TO

OUR BODY'S INABILITY TO HOLD

THOSE KINDS OF EMOTIONS.

I'VE HEARD UNFORGIVENESS

TALKED ABOUT THIS WAY: IT'S

LIKE DRINKING POISON,

EXPECTING THE OTHER PERSON

TO DIE.

SO FORGIVE.

FROM YOUR INNER MOST BEING,

LET THEM GO.

WHY?

SO THAT THE FREE FLOW OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT, FOR THE WORD,

TO BECOME FLESH IN YOU AND

CHANGE YOU.

IF YOU HAVE OUGHT AGAINST

ANY -- THESE ARE THE WORDS

OF JESUS, "IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, BEFORE YOU

PRAY, LEAVE YOUR OFFERING,

GO AND MAKE IT RIGHT, AND

THEN COME BACK AND PRAY."

SO LET THEM GO.

RELEASE THEM NOW.

IF IT IS COMING TO YOUR MIND

NOW, JUST LET THEM GO.

AND TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

AGREE WITH YOU NOW.

AND WE'RE GOING TO ASK FOR

MIRACLES FOR YOU.

JESUS, WE JUST COME TO YOU

AND WE JUST ASK FOR HEALING

NOW.

AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE

FINDING THEMSELVES INCAPABLE

OF FORGIVING, LET YOUR

FORGIVENESS FLOW THROUGH

THEM SO THAT THEY CAN BE SET

FREE.

AND SAY JUST AS YOU

SAID, "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM

FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY

DO."

AND NOW HEAL THEM.

HEAL THEM FROM HEART

DISEASE, FROM CANCER, FROM

ALL STRESS-RELATED

ILLNESSES.

SET THEM FREE.

FOR WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

TERRY, GOD GAVE YOU

SOMETHING?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE REALLY

STRUGGLED WITH JUST TRUSTING

GOD, REALLY BELIEVING HIM

FOR WHO HE IS.

THE LORD IS SPEAKING INTO

THE MIDST OF YOUR NEED RIGHT

NOW.

YOU KNOW IT RIGHT NOW,

BECAUSE THERE IS LIKE AN

OVERWHELMING PRESENCE OF HIM

AROUND YOU.

SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO YOU.

EVERY PRAYER YOU'VE LIFTED

TO HIM IS ABOUT TO BE

ANSWERED BECAUSE OF YOUR NEW

RELATIONSHIP WITH IM.

Gordon: AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED, WE

WANT TO SHARE IN YOUR GOOD

REPORT.

SO GIVE US A CALL AND LET US

KNOW.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

"A NEW COMMAND.

I GIVE YOU TO, THAT YOU LOVE

ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED

YOU.

THAT YOU ALSO LOVE ONE

ANOTHER."

GOD BLESS YOU.
