Learn the history behind the iconic phrase "Keep calm and carry on," and hear how you can make it through a crisis. Read Transcript


Gordon: WORDS FROM

HISTORY THAT RESOUND TODAY.

LIKE IT OR NOT, IF YOU'RE A

CHRISTIAN, YOU'RE ENGAGED IN

BATTLE.

AND IT'S A BATTLE FOR YOUR

OWN SOUL.

HOW TO KEEP CALM AND CARRY

ON, 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.

WELL, WELCOME TO THIS SHOW.

THE PHRASE "KEEP CALM AND

CARRY ON" CAN BE FOUND ON

MUGS, ARTWORK, AND T-SHIRTS

ALL OFFICE OVER THE

COUNTRY.

IT HAS BECOME A CONSULT TRAL

CULTURAL PHENOMENON.

THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT PUT

THE PHRASE ON A POSTER IN

1939, AND THEY HOPED IT

WOULD BOOST MORALE AHEAD OF

THE SECOND WORLD WAR.

BUT ONLY A FEW PEOPLE SAW

IT, UNTIL RECENTLY.

*

IN THE SPRING OF 1939,

DURING THE BUILD UP TO WAR

WITH GERMANY, THE BRITISH

GOVERNMENT PUBLISHED A

SERIES OF PROPAGANDA TO

OFFER THE PUBLIC

REASSURANCES IN THE YEARS

AHEAD.

THEY WENT TO A UNIFORM,

MAKING THEM DIFFICULT FOR

THE ENEMY TO COUNTERFEIT.

THEY USED THE CROWN OF KING

GEORGE THE SIXTH AND IT HAD

JUST TWO COLORS.

THE FIRST POSTER CARRIED THE

SLOGAN "YOUR COURAGE, YOUR

CHEERFULNESS, YOUR

RESOLUTION WILL BRING US

VICTORY."

THE SECOND HAD THE WORDS

"FREEDOM IS IN PERIL, DEFEND

IT WITH ALL OF YOUR MIGHT."

AND THE THIRD SIMPLY

READ, "KEEP CALM AND CARRY

ON."

THE FIRST TWO DESIGNS WERE

DISTRIBUTED IN SEPTEMBER OF

1939 AND APPEARED UP AND

DOWN THE COUNTRY IN SHOP

WINDOWS AND RAILWAY

PLATFORMS.

BUT THEY WERE INTENDED FOR

USE ONLY IN TIMES OF CRISIS

OR INVASION.

IN THE END, THE POSTER WAS

NEVER OFFICIALLY ISSUED AND

IT REMAINED UNSEEN BY THE

PUBLIC, UNTIL A COPY TURNED

UP MORE THAN 50 YEARS

LATER.

IT WAS FOUND IN A SECONDHAND

WORKSHOP IN THE NORTHEAST

CORNER OF ENGLAND.

*

BY THE BOOKS WAS BEGUN IN

1991 BY A COUPLE.

THE BUILDING USED TO BE AN

OLD VICTORIAN RAILWAY

STATION.

BUT THE STATION'S WAITING

ROOMS ARE STILL THERE.

IT WAS IN 2000 THAT STEWART

FOUND THE POSTER IN A BOX OF

DUSTY OLD BOOKS THAT HAD

BEEN BOUGHT AT AUCTION.

MARY LIKED IT SO MUCH, SHE

HAD IT FRAMED AND PUT IT UP

IN THE SHOP.

IT PROVED SO POPULAR WITH

THE COSTUMERS, A YEAR LATER

THEY BEGAN TO SELL COPIES.

SINCE THAT TIME, THE POSTER

HAS BEEN REPRODUCED, AND IT

HAS BECOME A TRULY ICONIC

ISSUE OF THE 21st

CENTURY.

IT IS HARD TO SAY EXACTLY

WHY SUCH A PHRASE FROM A

BY-GONE DECADE WOULD HAVE SO

MUCH APPEAL TO A DECADE AS

NOW.

IT IS NOW COMMONLY

RECOGNIZABLE.

PERHAPS IT IS THE WORDS ON

THE POSTER THAT THE PEOPLE

FIND THE MOST ENCHANTING.

LIKE A VOICE OUT OF HISTORY,

IT OFFERS A VERY SIMPLE,

WARM-HEARTED MESSAGE TO

OTHERS IN DIFFICULT TIMES.

"KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON."

Gordon: WELL, IT'S LIKE

A VOICE FROM A BY-GONE ERA,

"KEEP CALM ON CARRY ON."

AND IN THIS DAY OF

TERRORISM, WHERE YOU JUST

DON'T KNOW WHERE THE NEXT

ATTACK IS GOING TO HAPPEN,

THESE ARE WORDS TO LIVE BY.

NOW, WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY

ABOUT THIS?

AND WHAT KIND OF BIBLE

PHRASES ARE THERE?

WELL, APOSTLE PAUL WROTE,

AND HE WROTE TO TIMOTHY, AND

NOW LET'S GET THE CONTEXT

HERE SO YOU REALLY

UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF

THESE WORDS.

IN 2 TIMOTHY, IT IS PAUL'S

FINAL LETTER.

HE IS IN PRISON IN ROME.

AND HE HAS ALREADY -- IT HAS

ALREADY BEEN REVEALED TO HIM

THAT YOUR LIFE IS GOING TO

BE POURED OUT LIKE A DRINK

OFFERING, WHICH IS AN IMAGE

OF THE DEATH HE KNOWS HE IS

GETTING READY TO HAVE, WHERE

LITERALLY YOU WOULD GO TO

THE TEMPLE AND YOU WOULD

POUR OUT A DRINK OF OFFERING

IN THE TEMPLE, AND YOU WOULD

JUST EMPTY THE CUP.

HE WAS ABOUT TO BE

BEHEADED.

AND HE KNEW THAT HIS WHOLE

BODY WOULD JUST BLEED OUT

RIGHT THERE AFTER THE

EXECUTIONER WAS DONE WITH

HIM.

AND SO HE SAID, I'M BEING

POURED OUT LIKE A DRINK

OFFERING.

SO THESE ARE THE WORDS THAT

HE GAVE TO TIMOTHY.

AND PAUL LIKED TO USE

MILITARY TERMS.

AND HE UNDERSTOOD THAT HE

WAS IN A BATTLE.

NOT A BATTLE AGAINST EARTHLY

FORCES, NOT A BATTLE AGAINST

FLESH AND BLOOD.

NOT A BATTLE AGAINST

PEOPLE.

HE WAS IN A BATTLE AGAINST

HEAVENLY FORCES THAT WANTED

TO STOP THE SPREAD OF THE

GOOD NEWS.

AND WERE WILLING TO DO

ANYTHING, INCLUDING

IMPRISON, KILL.

THAT'S WHAT THESE FORCES

WERE TRYING TO DO.

AND THEY WERE TRYING TO

SQUELCH OUT THE GOD NEWS

THAT GOD LOVES US.

THAT GOD WANTS TO FORGIVE

ALL OF OUR SINS.

THAT GOD WANTS TO PREPARE A

PLACE FOR US THAT WE WOULD

LIVE IN FOR ALL ETERNITY.

SO HE HAD HIS EYES NOT JUST

ON THE FUTURE OF BEING WITH

JESUS AND ENJOYING THE JOYS

OF HEAVEN.

HE HAD A GLIMPSE OF THAT AS

WELL.

BUT HE WANTED TIMOTHY TO

FOCUS ON THE BATTLE AT

HAND.

AND SO HE USED MILITARY

IMAGES.

HERE IS WHAT HE SAID, 2

TIMOTHY 2: 3: "YOU,

THEREFORE, MUST ENDURE

HARDSHIP AS A GOOD SOLDIER

OF JESUS CHRIST."

THIS ISN'T AN OPTION FOR US

AS CHRISTIANS.

AND SO OFTEN IN THE

CHRISTIAN WALK HARDSHIP

COMES AND IT CAN OVERTAKE

YOU AND FOR A TIME,

OVERWHELM YOU, WHERE YOU

WONDER, WHERE IS GOD?

I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS.

I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS GOING

TO GET THIS HARD.

I DIDN'T KNOW ALL THESE

TERRIBLE THINGS WERE GOING

TO HAPPEN TO ME.

WELL, JESUS PROMISES US, AND

IT'S A UNIQUE PROMISE, THAT

IN THIS WORLD WE WOULD HAVE

TROUBLE.

HE ALSO PROMISES

PERSECUTION.

ANYONE WHO TRIES TO LIVE A

RIGHTEOUS LIFE WILL HAVE

PERSECUTION.

THE WORLD WILL COME AT YOU.

SPIRITUAL FORCES WILL COME

AT YOU.

AND SO WHETHER YOU LIKE IT

OR NOT, IF YOU'RE A

CHRISTIAN, YOU'RE ENGAGED IN

BATTLE.

AND IT'S A BATTLE FOR YOUR

OWN SOUL, FOR YOUR OWN

FAITH.

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

AND THAT'S WHY PAUL SAYS,

YOU MUST ENDURE THAT AS A

GOOD SOLDIER.

NOW START THINKING ABOUT

WHAT SOLDIERS GO THROUGH IN

BATTLE, AND IN CAMP AND IN

TRAINING.

THERE IS NO REST TIME.

OCCASIONALLY THEY GET SOME R

& R, WHICH MEANS THEY'RE

REMOVED FROM THE

BATTLEFIELD.

BUT WHEN YOU'RE IN THE

BATTLEFIELD, THERE IS NO

REST TIME.

THERE ARE THINGS THAT YOU

HAVE TO DO.

AND BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO DO

THEM, YOU ENDURE WHATEVER

HARDSHIP COMES AT YOU IN THE

BATTLE.

PAUL GOES ON TO SAY IN VERSE

4: "NO ONE ENGAGED IN

WARFARE ENTANGLES HIMSELF

WITH THE AFFAIRS OF THIS

LIFE, THAT HE MAY PLEASE

HIM, WHO ENLISTED HIM AS A

SOLDIER."

SO KEEP YOUR EYES ON

HEAVEN.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE

BATTLE.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON WHAT PAUL

IS ADMONISHING TIMOTHY.

ENDURE THAT HARDSHIP.

AND IF YOU WILL, KEEP CALM

AND CARRY ON.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, HER

HUSBAND DIED FOR 90 MINUTES

BEFORE COMING BACK TO LIFE.

HERE HOW EVA PIPER KEPT CALM

THROUGH IT ALL, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: DON PIPER WAS

DRIVING HOME WHEN HE WAS HIT

HEAD-ON BY A

TRACTOR-TRAILER.

HE WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD ON

THE SCENE, AND THEN SPENT A

FAMOUS THE 90 MINUTES IN

HEAVEN BEFORE BEING

REVIVED.

COMING BACK TO LIFE WAS AN

ANSWER TO HIS WIFE'S PRAYER,

AND THIS WAS ONLY THE FIRST

TEST OF HER FAITH.

TRAGEDY IS A PART OF

LIFE.

WE DON'T GO THROUGH LIFE

WITHOUT TRAGEDY.

DON HAS BEEN IN A SERIES

SERIOUS CAR ACCIDENT.

GOD SPOKE TO ME RIGHT

THEN AND SAID, YOU KNOW THIS

IS GOING TO BE HARD, IT IS

GOING TO BE DIFFICULT, BUT

I'M WITH YOU.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

FOR EVERY TWO STEPS FORWARD,

WE WOULD GO THREE STEPS

BACK.

SO FOR TWO YEARS, REALLY, WE

WERE IN AND OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL.

ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS OF

THIS WAS DON'S DEPRESSION

AND ME DEALING WITH THAT.

HE -- AND I DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND THE DEPRESSION.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT

DEPRESSION WAS EVEN AT THAT

POINT.

I JUST KNEW THAT HE WOULDN'T

TALK TO ME.

HE BASICALLY WOULD STEER AT

THE CEILING, AND IT HURT.

IT WAS VERY PAINFUL BECAUSE

I WAS SO EXHAUSTED ON SO

MANY LEVELS.

I REMEMBER ONE NIGHT I

WALKED TOWARD THE DOOR AND

TURNED TO HIM AND SAID,

WELL, I'M GOING TO GO AHEAD

AND GO HOME.

I'LL SEE YOU IN THE

MORNING.

AND ALL I GOT WAS AN

UH-HUH.

I SNAPPED, AND I LET HIM

HAVE IT.

HOW COULD YOU ACT LIKE

THIS?

DON'T YOU LOVE ME ANYMORE?

WHY AREN'T YOU HAPPY TO BE

BACK HOME?

WHY AREN'T YOU TREATING OUR

CHILDREN BETTER?

AREN'T YOU GLAD THEY ARE

COMING TO SEE YOU?

AND I TURNED TO GO, AND I

GLANCED AT THAT MIRROR, AND

THERE WERE TEARS COMING DOWN

HIS FACE.

AND I THOUGHT, OH, MY

GOODNESS, WHAT HAVE I DONE?

AND I WALKED OVER AND I JUST

PUT MY ARMS AROUND HIM.

I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE

OKAY.

GOD SHOWED ME.

HE SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT, EVA,

I LOVE YOU NO MATTER HOW

UGLY YOU ARE.

I LOVE YOU WHETHER YOU ARE

IN A BAD MOOD.

OR WHETHER YOU ARE FUSSING

AT THE KIDS OR WHETHER

YOU'RE DEPRESSED.

I LOVE YOU.

YOU NEED TO LOOK AT DON

THROUGH MY EYES.

AND THAT MEANS YOU NEED TO

LOVE HIM NO MATTER WHAT.

FROM THEN ON -- DON STILL

WAS DEPRESSED FOR DAYS AFTER

THAT.

BUT INSTEAD OF ME GETTING

ANGRY WITH HIM THEN, I COULD

GO OKAY.

YOU KNOW.

GOD LOVES HIM; I LOVE HIM.

AND WE'RE GOING TO STICK IT

OUT AND WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

IT THROUGH THIS.

MY FAVORITE VERSE HAS ALWAYS

BEEN, AND IT TOOK ON A WHOLE

NEW MEANING FOR ME, IS

JEREMIAH 29: 11: "FOR I KNOW

THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU,

PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT

TO HARM YOU.

PLANS TO BRING YOU A HOPE

AND A FUTURE."

WHEN I WAS SITTING THERE IN

THAT HOSPITAL ROOM, I JUST

THOUGHT THROUGH THAT VERSE.

AND I'M THINKING, LORD, HOW

IS THIS HELPING ME?

HOW CAN THIS BE YOUR PLAN?

AND YET I KNEW HE WAS

TELLING ME THE TRUTH BECAUSE

GOD NEVER LIES.

GOD'S WORD IS SO POWERFUL,

I, HE IS ALWAYS TO COME

BACK AND GIVE YOU WHAT YOU

NEED.

I WOULD NOT TRADE ANYTHING

FOR THE DEEP FAITH THAT I

HAVE.

SO GOD DID HAVE A PLAN AND

HE DID PROSPER ME BECAUSE

THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS

THE MOST PRECIOUS, PRICELESS

THING ON THE FACE OF THE

EARTH.

Gordon: IT'S WHAT WE'RE

MADE FOR.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS

WHAT WE WERE MADE FOR,

THAT'S WHAT HE INTENDED.

AND HE INTENDED GOOD

THINGS.

HE PUT US IN A GARDEN.

HE WOULD COME DOWN IN THE

COOL OF THE EVENING TO TALK

WITH US.

AND WE MESSED THAT DREAM

UP.

WE DECIDED TO EAT OF THE

FORBIDDEN FRUITMENT WE

FRUIT.

WE DECIDED TO GO AWAY.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS GOOD

NEVER GAVE UP ON HIS DREAM.

HE HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE

A PEOPLE, WHERE WE WILL BE

HIS PEOPLE AND HE WILL BE

OUR GOD.

OUR PROVIDER.

OUR VERY PRESENT HELP IN

TIME OF TROUBLE.

NOW, THERE IS COMING A POINT

WHERE HE IS GOING TO RESTORE

THAT GARDEN.

HE IS GOING TO MAKE A NEW

HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH.

AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

ENDURE THE HARDSHIP THAT

WE'RE IN NOW, HOPING,

LOOKING FOR A CITY WHO'S

BUILDER AND MAKER IS GOD.

HERE IS THE LIFE VERSE THAT

EVA HAD, AND IF YOU HAVE A

LIFE VERSE THAT HAS GOTTEN

YOU THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME

AND EN ABLE ENABLED YOU TO

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON,

SHARE IT WITH US.

WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR STORY

OF HOW GOD HAS COMFORTED YOU

AND BROUGHT YOU THROUGH.

AND WHAT WAS THE VERSE FROM

THE BIBLE THAT SAW YOU

THROUGH.

HERE IT IS FROM JEREMIAH 29:

11: "FOR I KNOW THE THOUGHTS

THAT I THINK TOWARDS YOU" --

SAYS THE LORD -- "THOUGHTS

OF PEACE AND NOT OF EVIL, TO

GIVE YOU A FUTURE AND A

HOPE."

WHEN BAD TIMES COME, DON'T

THINK THAT IT IS GOD'S

FAULT, THAT SOMEHOW OR

ANOTHER GOD IS JUDGING YOU.

HIS THOUGHTS TOWARDS YOU ARE

GOOD.

AND HE HAS PREPARED A PLACE

FOR YOU.

AND HE IS WORKING ALL THINGS

TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.

WHY?

TO GIVE YOU A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

SO WHEN BAD TIMES COME, LOOK

TO THAT HOPE.

LOOK TO THAT FUTURE.

WHEN YOU HAVE THAT HOPE, YOU

HAVE THE FAITH YOU NEED TO

GET THROUGH.

STILL AHEAD, A MAN GETS

SCARY NEWS FROM HIS DOCTOR.

WE FOUND A MASS ON THE

LOWER LOBE OF YOUR RIGHT

LUNG.

AND MY DOCTOR WOULDN'T SAY

CANCER, BUT I KNEW WHAT THEY

WERE THINKING.

AND I WAS SCARED.

Gordon: WATCH HOW THIS

MAN IS HEALED BEFORE HE HAS

TREATMENT.

LATER ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

Gordon: WELL, THIS IS

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WHERE WE INTERACT WITH YOU,

AND SO LET'S GO OVER TO DIM

MEEITTRIA IN THE CHATROOM.

PAUL WRITES, "HOW DO WE

KNOW WHEN WE NEED TO LET GO

AND LET GOD?"

Gordon: DON'T GIVE UP.

I BELIEVE IN PERSEVERING

PRAYER AND CONTENDING

PRAYER.

THAT'S WHY JESUS GAVE US THE

PARABLE OF THE WIDOW WHO

GOES TO THE UNRIGHTEOUS

JUDGE AND SHE KEEPS BANGING

ON THE DOOR.

THAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THAT

PARABLE, TO TEACH US THAT,

AS A FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE

OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, TO

PERSEVERE.

IF YOU THINK YOU CAN DO IT

ON YOUR OWN EFFORT, YOU'RE

THINKING WRONG.

LET JESUS CARRY THAT BURDEN

WITH YOU.

WHEN HE SAYS MY BURDEN IS

LIGHT, MY YOLK IS EASY, HE

MEANS IT.

WHEN THE BURDEN GETS

UNBEARABLE, THAT MEANS

YOU'RE NOT GIVING IT TO

HIM.

SO KEEP GIVING IT TO HIM IN

THE MIDDLE OF YOUR

CONTENDING, AND KEEP

CONTENDING.

AND THAT'S THE SECRET, AND

THAT'S THE WAY THROUGH.

WELL, WE WANT TO TAKE THE

GOOD NEWS OF THE BIBLE

STORIES TO THE CHILDREN OF

THE WORLD.

AND WHEN CBN'S "SUPERBOOK"

AIRED IN MEXICO, ONE MILLION

PEOPLE SAW THE STORY OF

JESUS.

MANY OF THEM FOR THE VERY

FIRST TIME.

ONE OF THEM WAS A BOY NAMED

KEVIN.

HE DID MORE THAN JUST WATCH

THE PROGRAM.

HE SHARED THE STORY WITH HIS

ENTIRE FAMILY.

Reporter: KEVIN WAS TWO

MONTHS OLD THE FIRST TIME HE

WENT TO A MEXICAN JAIL.

HIS MOTHER, LUCY, TOOK HIM

THERE TO MEET HIS FATHER.

AT FIRST IT DIDN'T AFFECT

HIM BECAUSE HE WAS A BABY.

BUT AS HE GREW UP, HE

REALIZED WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

WE VISITED MANY TIMES, BUT

WHEN HIS FATHER WAS RELEASED

FROM JAIL, HE DIDN'T CARE

ABOUT KEVIN AND HE LEFT US.

Reporter: HIS

STEPFATHER, JOSE, WORKS HARD

CLEANING WINDSHIELDS TO

PROVIDE FOR HIS FAMILY.

BUT EVEN WITH HIS GOOD

EXAMPLE, LUCY WAS CONCERNED

ABOUT KEVIN.

HE HAD GONE THROUGH VERY

HARD TIMES.

I JUST WANT HIM TO GROW UP

WITH HOPE.

Reporter: CBN WAS ABOUT

TO BRING THEM THAT HOPE IN A

VERY BIG WAY.

ON EASTER WEEKEND, FOR THE

FIRST TIME EVER, THE NEW

"SUPERBOOK" WAS BROADCAST IN

MEXICO.

ONE OF THE LARGEST NETWORKS

IN THE COUNTRY AIRED A

90-MINUTE SPECIAL WITH

EPISODES ABOUT THE MIRACLES

OF JESUS, THE LAST SUPPER,

AND CHRIST'S DEATH AND

RESURRECTION.

A LOCAL CHURCH INVITED

CHILDREN TO WATCH THE

PREMIERE ON THEIR BIG

SCREENS.

KEVIN WAS TOUCHED BY THE

SACRIFICIAL LOVE OF JESUS.

JESUS WAS GOOD.

HE WAS PUNISHED FOR OUR

SINS.

THEY BEAT HIM WITH A WHIP.

Reporter: WHEN THEY

INVITED CHILDREN TO COME

FORWARD FOR PRAYER, KEVIN

DECIDED TO GO UP.

I ASKED JESUS TO COME

INTO MY HEART AND TO FORGIVE

MY SINS.

I KNOW GOD IS MY FATHER IN

HEAVEN.

Reporter: THAT EASTER

WEEKEND KEVIN FOUND A NEW

CONFIDENCE AND HOPE.

THE NEXT DAY WE VISITED HIM

AT HIS HOME.

HE WAS TELLING HIS BROTHERS

AND SISTERS ABOUT ALL OF THE

STORIES HE SAW ON

"SUPERBOOK."

HE ALSO TOLD THEM ABOUT

MEETING THE ROBOT, NAMED

GIZMO.

GIZMO SHOOK MY HAND AND

TOOK A PICTURE WITH ME.

HE AND I ARE FRIENDS NOW.

LUCY AND JOSE COULD

EASILY SEE THE DIFFERENCE

JESUS MADE IN KEVIN'S LIFE.

AND AFTER WE TALKED, THEY

DECIDED TO GIVE THEIR LIVES

TO CHRIST, TOO.

NOW THE WHOLE FAMILY CAN'T

WAIT TO GO TO CHURCH

TOGETHER.

I WANT TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT GOD BECAUSE HE IS

GOOD.

Gordon: HE IS GOOD.

AND WE WANT TO LET CHILDREN

KNOW THAT, AND LET THEM KNOW

AND HEAR THESE STORIES

AROUND THE WORLD.

NOW, IF YOU WANT TO BE A

PART OF THAT, HERE'S THE

1-888-777-1999.

WELL, MIKE NAILER LOVES TO

ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE

GOD FOR MIRACLES.

HE SHARES HIS OWN STORY OF

SUPER NATURAL HEALING WITH

ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN,

STARTING WITH THE DAY HE WAS

STRUGGLING TO BREATHE IN THE

BACK OF AN AMBULANCE.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

IN AUGUST OF 2010, MIKE

NAILER WOKE UP UNABLE TO

BREATHE OR STOP COUGHING.

HE WAS RUSHED TO A HOSPITAL

WHERE A C.A.T. SCAN REVEALED

BLOOD CLOTS IN HIS LUNGS.

SO FOR THE NEXT SIX

MONTHS, GOSH, I WAS AT THE

HOSPITAL AT LEAST ONCE OR

TWICE A WEEK.

THEY GOT ME REGULATED.

THE THINNESS OF MY BLOOD.

THEY RAN ANOTHER C.A.T. SCAN

AFTER SIX MONTHS.

Reporter: AT THAT TIME,

THE DOCTOR HAD GOOD NEWS

ABOUT MIKE'S BLOOD CLOTS.

THEY HAD COMPLETELY

DISSOLVED.

BUT THE DOCTOR HAD BAD NEWS

AS WELL.

WE FOUND A MASS ON THE

LOWER LOBE OF YOUR RIGHT

LUNG.

IT MEASURES FOUR BY THREE BY

TWO.

NOW, MY DOCTOR WOULDN'T SAY

CANCER, BUT I KNEW WHAT THEY

WERE THINKING.

AND I WAS SCARED.

WHEN YOU'RE FACED WITH THE

POSSIBILITY OF DYING, IT

SCARES THE FIRE OUT OF YOU.

IT'S NOT GOOD NEWS.

IT WAS VERY, VERY

DISTURBING.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

HE'S THE PERSON THAT I LOVE

SO MUCH.

Reporter: DOCTORS

SCHEDULED A BIOPSY FOR A FEW

WEEKS LATER.

WHILE WAITING, MIKE AND LILY

PRAYED FOR A MIRACLE.

THEY ALSO WATCHED "THE 700

CLUB" FOR ENCOURAGEMENT.

THAT'S WHEN GORDON CAME

ON AND SAID, THERE IS

SOMEBODY WATCHING THAT HAS

BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A MASS

ON THE LOWER LOBE OF YOUR

RIGHT LUNG.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A MASS IN

THE BOTTOM LOBE OF YOUR

RIGHT LUNG.

YOU'VE JUST BEEN DIAGNOSED

WITH IT.

AND YOU'RE GRIPPED WITH FEAR

FROM IT.

AND JESUS IS SAYING LET THAT

FEAR BE GONE FROM YOU NOW.

AS SOON AS HE SAID THAT,

IT WAS JUST LIKE, WOW!

I SAID, DID YOU HEAR THAT?

AND HE SAID, YES, IT'S

MINE!

WHEN THE LORD USES

SOMEBODY THAT YOU'VE NEVER

MET, ON THE OTHER SIDE OF

THE COUNTRY, OVER THE TV,

JUST FOR HIM TO TELL ME,

HEY, I'M GOING TO TAKE CARE

OF YOU, A PEACE CAME OVER ME

AND HER BOTH.

Reporter: THE FOLLOWING

WEEK MIKE WENT IN FOR HIS

BIOPSY.

THE DOCTORS HAD TO FIRST

LOCATE THE MASS ON A C.A.T.

SCAN BEFORE PROCEEDING.

SO THEY PUT ME ON THE

TABLE AND RAN ME UNDER THE

C.A.T. SCAN AND SAID, TAKE A

DEEP BREATH, AND I DID.

AFTER THE THIRD TIME, THE

HEAD DOCTOR COMES WALKING

OUT FROM BEHIND THE WALL AND

SAYS, WELL, MR. NAILER, I

GUESS YOU CAN GET UP AND

JUST GO ON HOME BECAUSE

THERE IS NOTHING THERE TO DO

A BIOPSY ON.

AND I SAID, GENTLEMEN, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR FAITH

IS.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU

KNOW GOD IS STILL ALIVE.

HE IS STILL DOING WELL.

HE IS ON THE THRONE, AND HE

STILL DOES MIRACLES, BECAUSE

I AM ONE.

AND THEY SAID, YES, YOU

ARE.

Reporter: TODAY MIKE'S

LUNGS ARE STILL CLEAR, AND

THE COUPLE LOVES TO SHARE

THEIR MIRACLE WITH EVERYONE

THEY MEET.

I WOULD SAY BELIEVE IN

THE LORD.

WHATEVER YOU NEED, ASK HIM

WITH ALL YOUR HEART.

HE IS STILL IN THE

MIRACLE BUSINESS.

IF HE COULD DO IT FOR ME, I

PROMISE YOU HE CAN DO IT FOR

ANYBODY ELSE.

Gordon: AND HE WANTS TO

DO IT FOR U.THAT'S TH YOU.

THAT'S THE AMAZING THING.

WE DON'T HAVE A ARGUE WITH

HIM.

WE DON'T HAVE TO CONVINCE

HIM.

WE DON'T HAVE TO BEG HIM.

WE JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE WHAT

HE HAS ALREADY DONE.

WHEN WERE YOUR DISEASES

HEALED?

THE SAME TIME YOUR SINS WERE

FORGIVEN, 2,000 YEARS AGO.

BY HIS STRIPE WE ARE

HEALED.

PETER SAID, "WE WERE

HEALED."

HE TALKS ABOUT IT IN A PAST

TENSE.

THAT PROPHECY HAS ALREADY

BEEN FULFILLED.

THAT WAS A PROPHECY OF

ISAIAH, IN ISAIAH 53, AND IT

WAS FULFILLED BY JESUS.

AND THEN PETER TALKING ABOUT

IT AFTER WORDS SAYS, "BY HIS

STRIPES WE WERE HEALED."

IT'S ALREADY BEEN

ACCOMPLISHED.

AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE AND RECEIVE.

IF YOU NEED HEALING, RIGHT

NOW JUST LAY YOUR HAND ON

THAT AREA OF THE BODY THAT

NEEDS HEALING.

AND LET'S AGREE TOGETHER.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN TWO

OR MORE AGREE, TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE.

SO I'LL AGREE WITH YOU, AND

TOGETHER LET'S TOUCH THAT

AREA THAT NEEDS HEALING AND

LET GOD DO ALL OF THE REST.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST REACH OUT AND

WE COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH

THOSE WHO ARE TOUCHING THAT

AREA OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

AND RIGHT NOW WE COME

AGAINST CANCER, WE COME

AGAINST PAIN, WE COME

AGAINST IMFLAMMATION.

AND IN JESUS' NAME WE

PROCLAIM OVER YOU BE HEALED

NOW.

AND BE MADE WHOLE.

MAY YOU BE RELEASED FROM ALL

PAIN AND ALL DISCOMFORT.

MAY YOUR DOCTOR GIVE YOU A

GLOWING REPORT OF JUST HOW

HEALTHY JESUS HAS MADE YOU.

WE RECEIVE IT ALL IN HIS

NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE

SHARP PAIN IN YOUR BACK, AND

GOD IS JUST HEALING THAT.

AND THAT PAIN JUST LEFT YOU

WHEN YOU HEARD THAT WORD.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE

PRAYING FOR CANCER, AND GOD

HAS DELIVERED YOU FROM

THAT.

AND YOU ARE GOING TO BE

HEALED.

GO BACK TO THE DOCTOR AND

GET RETESTED, AND GIVE GLORY

TO WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR

YOU.

WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

AND WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24 HOURS

A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

AND WE BELIEVE IN THE PRAYER

OF THE WIDOW WITH THE

UNRIGHTEOUS JUDGE.

WE BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAY, INPORTUNE PRAYER IS

WHAT THE BIBLE CALLS IT.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

IT IS OR HONOR AND PRIVILEGE

TO DO THAT.

SO WE SET UP A TOLL-FREE

NUMBER FOR YOU.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

1-888-777-1999.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM ISAIAH 26: "YOU

WILL KEEP HIM IN PERFECT

PEACE, WHO'S MIND IS STAYED

ON YOU BECAUSE HE TRUSTS IN

YOU."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
