Gordon: COMING UP, A

MYSTERIOUS MAN APPEARS IN A

DREAM.

HE IS, LIKE, DO YOU WANT

TO GO INSIDE.

Gordon: AND THEN ON A

TV SET.

I KNOW I KNOW HIM, LIKE

IN MY DREAMS.

Gordon: WHO HE SAW 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

MANY WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING

IN THE WORLD TODAY.

CWELCOME TO "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

THE AVERAGE PERSON SPENDS

ABOUT SIX YEARS OF THEIR

LIVES DREAMING AT NIGHT.

AND MOST OF OUR DREAMS ARE

FORGOTTEN.

FOR HAS SANSAN, THERE IS

ONE DREAM HE WILL ALWAYS

REMEMBER.

HERE IS HIS STORY.

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A

DARK TUNNEL, AND YOU COULD

JUST SEE THE LIGHT AT THE

END.

IT WAS JUST ME, NOBODY ELSE

AROUND.

Reporter: HASSAN GREW

UP ANGRY, AN EMOTION HE

DEVELOPED WHILE BEING RAISED

IN A BROKEN MUSLIM HOME.

MY MOTHER IS A GREAT

MOTHER.

SHE PRAYS EVERY SINGLE DAY.

SHE FOLLOWS THE MUSLIM

TRADITION.

MY FATHER, ON THE OTHER

HAND, HE REALLY DIDN'T

FOLLOW IT.

HE DRUNK.

HE WOULD TAKE OUT HIS ANGER

ON US.

HE CHEATED ON MY MOTHER.

HE ABUSED HER.

THEY ABUSED US.

MY MOM AND DAD GOT

DIVORCED.

Reporter: NEEDING AN

OUTLET FOR HIS TEMPER, HE

TURNED TO HIS BROTHER.

HE STARTED HIS OWN

GANGMENT I GANG.

IT WENT FROM FIVE PEOPLE TO

25 AND THEN TO HUNDREDS.

I WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE

HIM.

I TOLD HIM I WANTED TO

JOIN.

Reporter: AS HE ENTERED

HIGH SCHOOL, HASSAN MET

CHRISTINE, A CUTE GIRL HE

WANTED TO GET TO KNOW

BETTER.

WHEN I ASKED HER OUT, I

DIDN'T KNOW SHE WAS A

CHRISTIAN.

I TOLD I KNOW THERE IS A

GOD, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IN

HEAVEN OR HELL.

SHE WON'T THROW CHRISTIANITY

ON ME.

BUT SHE WOULD LET ME KNOW

ABOUT IT.

SHE WOULD TELL ME I DIDN'T

HAVE TO FIGHT ANYMORE OR

HIDE OR RUN ANYMORE.

SHE SAID JESUS DIED FOR ME

AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN

FIGHTING FOR ME.

AND I WAS, LIKE, THERE IS NO

WAY SOMEBODY WOULD DO THAT

FOR ME.

Reporter: WHILE HE

DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF

CHRISTIANITY, IT BEGAN TO

AFFECT HIS SLEEP.

I WOULD KEEP HAVING THESE

DREAMS.

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN A DARK

TUNNEL.

AND I COULD SEE THE LIGHT AT

THE END OF THE TUNNEL.

WHEN I WAS WALKING TOWARDS

THE LIGHT, I WOULD SEE THIS

GATE.

I WOULD SIT THERE AND SHAKE

THE GATE.

SOME FIGURE, SOME IMAGE,

COMES UP TO ME AND JUST PUTS

HIS HAND ON MY SHOULDER.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, DO YOU

WANT TO GO INSIDE.

I WAS, LIKE, YES.

BUT HE WOULDN'T LOOK AT ME.

I WAS TELLING HIM I WANTED

TO GO IN BECAUSE IT IS SCARY

OUT THERE.

HE TOLD ME THE ONLY WAY IN

IS THROUGH ME.

AND I WAS, LIKE, ARE YOU

GOING TO LET ME IN.

ALL I HEARD WAS, LIKE, A BIG

GIGGLE, AND THAT'S WHEN I

WOKE UP.

I WOULD NEVER SEE HIS EYES.

I WOULD ALWAYS JUST SEE THE

SIDE OF HIM OR THE BACK OF

HIM.

Reporter: THEN ONE DAY

WHILE HE WAS WITH CHRISTINE,

HASSAN MET THE SAME MAN HE

HAD SEEN IN HIS DREAMS.

WE SAT IN MY CAR AND WE

WATCHED TV.

I HAD A LITTLE TV IN THERE,

AND A PORTABLE ONE.

AND SHE BROUGHT "PASSION OF

THE CHRIST."

AS SOON AS JESUS CAME UP, MY

HEART STOPPED.

AND I TOLD HER, I KNOW THAT

GUY.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, IT'S

JESUS.

YOU'VE PROBABLY SEEN HIM

BEFORE.

I WAS, NO, I KNOW HIM, LIKE

AND MY DREAMS.

AND SHE SAID, WHAT ABOUT

YOUR DREAMS?

AND I TOLD HER.

EVEN THOUGH IT WAS AN ACTOR

ON TV JUS, JUST THE IMAGE

REALLY OPENED ME UP.

IT WAS, LIKE, HEY, I KNOW

THAT GUY.

THAT'S THE GUY WHO HAS BEEN

WITH ME SINCE I'VE HAD ALL

OF THESE DREAMS, SINCE I'VE

BEEN IN THE GANG.

Reporter: HASSAN

DECIDED TO RENOWNED HIS

BROTHER'S GANG.

I TOLD HIM, I WANT OUT.

I'M TIRED OF SEEING BLOOD.

MY BROTHER, SAID, ARE YOU

READY?

THERE WERE LIKE HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE, AND I WAS, LIKE,

THEY'RE GOING TO KILL ME.

AND NOBODY WOULD TOUCH ME.

AND MY BROTHER SAID, IT IS

TIME FOR US TO ALL GIVE THIS

UP.

SO MY DECISION HELPED BREAK

THE GANG APART.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

CONTINUED TO TALK WITH

HASSAN ABOUT JESUS.

HE EVENTUALLY AGREED TO

START GOING TO CHURCH.

BUT HE WAS NOT PREPARED FOR

WHAT HE SAW.

THIS GIRL WALKS ON STAGE,

AND SHE IS A REBORN

CHRISTIAN.

AND SHE PUT THE SIGN DOWN,

AND IT WAS MIGHT LITTLE

SISTER.

I COULDN'T STOP CRYING.

I JUST BROKE DOWN IN TEARS.

AFTER SEEING MY SISTER GET

BAPTIZED, I STARTED THINKING

ABOUT IT.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WOW, IT IS

TIME FOR ME TO GET

BAPTIZED.

ONE DAY IN JANUARY, I STOOD

UP AND I WALKED FORWARD AND

I ACCEPTED CHRIST.

WHEN I WAS COMING UP, I FELT

LIKE SOMEBODY WAS TRYING TO

PULL ME BACK DOWN.

I COULD FEEL THE CHAINS JUST

BREAKING.

AND WHEN I CAME UP, I TOOK

THE BIGGEST BREATH.

I FELT SO RELIEVED BECAUSE I

FELT LIKE I WAS FREE.

Reporter: THEN HIS

MUSLIM FAMILY FOUND OUT HE

WAS A CHRISTIAN.

I WOULD NOT TELL MY MOM I

KNEW MY SISTER WAS A

CHRISTIAN.

MY BROTHERS WOULDN'T TALK TO

ME, AND MY OTHER SISTER

WOULDN'T TALK TO ME.

MY MOTHER TOLD ME TO LEAVE

THE HOUSE.

AND SO I LEFT.

I SAID, GOD, I MADE THE

DECISION TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

I KNOW THIS IS NOT GOING TO

BE EASY.

I LOVE MY FAMILY, PLEASE

SHOW YOUR LOVE TO ME.

WHATEVER I'VE GOT TO DO,

I'LL DO IT.

THE NEXT MORNING, MY MOM

CALLS ME.

SHE WAS, LIKE, HEY, YOU WANT

TO COME OVER.

AND I WAS, LIKE, YEAH.

WE TALKED AND WE CRIED.

SHE WASN'T HAPPY WITH MY

DECISION, BUT SHE WASN'T

GOING TO LET ME GO BECAUSE I

WAS HER SON.

I TOLD HER I'M A BETTER

PERSON NOW.

SINCE I FOUND JESUS, I'M NOT

THE SAME PERSON I WAS.

SINCE THEN AND NOW, ME AND

MY MOM ARE CLOSER THAN EVER,

AND ME AND MY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS, WE TALK EACH AND

EVERY DAY.

THE HOUSE IS SO MUCH MORE

PEACEFUL NOW.

IN MY DREAM, I WOULD KNOCK

ON THE GATES AND NOBODY

WOULD ANSWER.

I WOULD KNOCK AND YELL, IS

SOMEBODY GOING TO LET ME

IN.

WHEN I FOUND CHRIST, THAT'S

WHEN I FELT WHOLE.

I WAS NEVER ALONE IN THIS

WORLD, FROM DAY ONE UNTIL

NOW.

Gordon: WHAT AN AMAZING

DREAM.

LOTS OF US HAVE DREAMS --

ALL OF US HAVE DREAMS.

SOME OF US HAVE DREAMS THAT

ARE FROM GOD.

AND HOW DO YOU TELL?

AND HOW DO YOU TELL THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A

GOD-INSPIRED DREAM AND ONE

THAT IS FROM YOUR OWN?

AND WHERE DO YOU GO WITH

THIS?

HOW DO YOU DISCERN, IS THIS

TRUE?

AND IS IT FROM GOD?

WELL, THE EASIEST WAY IS

DOES IT AGREE WITH THE

BIBLE?

AND IS WHAT YOUR TALKING

ABOUT, DREAMING ABOUT, IS

THAT IN ACCORD WITH WHAT IS

ALREADY WRITTEN IN THE

BIBLE?

THERE IS A REASON WE CALL

THE BIBLE THE CANON.

CANON IS A LATIN WORLD.

IT MEANS THE RULE.

AND IT MEANS TH THE RULER.

IT IS LIKE A MEASURING

STICK.

YOU MEASURE YOUR SPIRITUAL

EXPERIENCE AGAIN THE RULE OF

THE CANON AND DOES IT LINE

UP WITH THAT.

AND IF IT DOES, YAY, IT'S

FROM GOD.

FOR HASSAN'S DREAM, HERE IS

A BIBLE VERSE THAT DIRECTLY

LINES UP WITH WHAT HE

EXPERIENCED AT THAT GATE.

JOHN 14: 6: "I AM THE WAY,

THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.

NO ONE CAN COME TO THE

FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME."

AND THAT'S WHAT JESUS TOLD

HASSAN IN HIS DREAM.

HE IS A MUSLIM.

HE DOESN'T KNOW THE BIBLE.

NEVER READ THAT VERSE

BEFORE.

BUT HERE HE IS IN A DREAM,

AND HE IS GOING THROUGH A

TUNNEL, AND HE KNOWS I NEED

TO GET THROUGH THIS GATE.

I NEED TO ENTER INTO THIS.

AND JESUS TELLS HIM, I'M THE

WAY.

YOU CAN'T GO THROUGH UNLESS

THROUGH ME.

NOW, IS THAT BIBLICAL?

THE MERE FACT THAT JESUS CAN

SHOW UP IN A DREAM?

IS THAT BIBLICAL?

WELL, AGAIN, YOU FIND THAT

IN THE BIBLE, IN THE SAME

GOSPEL.

THE GOSPEL OF JOHN 14:

"THOSE WHO ACCEPT MY

COMMANDMENTS AND OBEY THEM

ARE THE ONES WHO LOVE ME.

AND BECAUSE THEY LOVE ME, MY

FATHER WILL LOVE THEM AND I

WILL LOVE THEM AND REVEAL

MYSELF TO EACH OF THEM."

GOD PROMISES -- JESUS

PROMISES HE'LL SHOW UP.

HE'LL MANIFEST HIMSELF.

NOW WITH HASSAN, HOW DID GOD

KNOW?

WELL, HE KNEW THAT HE WOULD

ACCEPT HIM.

HE WOULD OBEY HIM.

EVEN WHEN THINGS GOT TOUGH,

EVEN WHEN HE SAID, YOU NEED

TO SEPARATE FROM YOUR

FAMILY, YOU NEED TO FOLLOW

ME.

YOU DON'T NEED TO FOLLOW

ISLAM ANYMORE, HIS MOTHER

CAME TO HIM AND SAID, YOU

CAN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE.

THAT'S A TOUGH THING.

AND THEN HE PRAYED.

HE SAID, OKAY, I'LL FOLLOW

JESUS, AND HE PRAYED.

AND HE ASKED, YOU'VE GOT TO

HELP ME HERE.

AND HE ANSWERED THAT.

SO HE FULFILLED AFTER THE

DREAM -- WHICH IS CURIOUS,

AFTER THE DREAM, HE

FULFILLED THAT HE WOULD BE

THE ONE.

HE WOULD OBEY.

HE WOULD SHOW HIS LOVE FOR

HIM BY OBEDIENCE.

AND IN THAT, HE GOT THE MAN

MANIFESTATION OF JESUS

APPEARING TO HIM.

JESUS WILL DO THAT FOR YOU,

TOO.

AND THAT PROMISE IS FOR

EVERYONE.

THAT IF YOU LOVE HIM AND YOU

SHOW YOUR LOVE BY OBEDIENCE,

BY OBEYING WHAT HE ASKS YOU

TO DO, IF YOU DO THAT, HE'LL

SHOW UP.

HE'LL MANIFEST HIMSELF TO

YOU.

NOW, YOU MAY ASK THE

QUESTION: WHY DOES GOD DO

THAT FOR SOME PEOPLE?

WHY DOESN'T HE SHOW UP TO

EVERYBODY SIMULTANEOUSLY?

HERE IS THE ANSWER BECAUSE

ONE THE DISCIPLES ASKED THAT

VERY QUESTION IN THE SAME

CHAPTER IN JOHN: "LORD, WHY

ARE YOU GOING TO REVEAL

YOURSELF ONLY TO US AND NOT

TO THE WORLD AT LARGE?"

JESUS REPLIED, "ALL WHO LOVE

ME WILL DO WHAT I SAY.

MY FATHER WILL LOVE THEM,

AND WE WILL COME AND MAKE

OUR HOME WITH EACH OF

THEM."

"ANYONE WHO DOESN'T LOVE ME

WILL NOT OBEY ME."

AND THAT'S THE TEST, AND

THAT'S THE REASON.

SO IF YOU WANT TO HAVE GOD

IN YOUR HEART, IF YOU WANT

TO HAVE JESUS MANIFEST

HIMSELF TO YOU, THE

QUICKEST, THE EASIEST, AND

THE SHORTEST PATH TO THAT IS

TO RESOLVE I'LL OBEY HIM.

I'LL LOVE HIM SO MUCH THAT

I'LL OBEY WHAT HE ASKS ME TO

DO.

NOW, IF YOU'RE CONCERNED,

WHY IS GOD SHOWING UP TO

MUSLIMS?

WHY IS HE SHOWING UP TO

HINDUS, TO BUDDHISTS, TON

CONFUSIONISTS."

IT'S IN CHAPTER 2: "I WILL

POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON ALL

PEOPLE."

HE WANTS HIS SPIRIT ON ALL

PEOPLE.

ANY RACE, ANY CULTURE, ANY

RELIGION.

HE WANTS HIS SPIRIT POURED

ON ALL OF THEM BECAUSE HE

CONSIDERS ALL OF US TO BE

HIS CONCERN.

CIRN.

AND HE WANT CHILDREN.

AND SH HE SAYS, I WILL POUR

OUT MY FLESH ON ALL PEOPLE,

YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL

PROPHECPROPHESY.

TODAY RESOLVE, YOU'RE

GOING TO OBEY.

MAKE THAT A PROMISE TO

YOURSELF.

I WANT TO OBEY GOD AND LOVE

HIM.

AND ASK HIM, WILL YOU SHOW

UP?

WILL YOU POUR OUT YOUR

SPIRIT ON ME?

WILL YOU FILL ME TO

OVERFLOWING SO I CAN KNOW

YOU?

IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, HE'LL COME TO

YOU.

HE'LL MANIFEST HIMSELF TO

YOU BECAUSE THAT'S HIS

PROMISE.

COMING UP, A WOMAN WHO

CARRIED A POTENTIALLY FATAL

DISEASE IS HEALED AFTER A

DREAM.

HER STORY IS UP NEXT.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Gordon: WHEN SANGITA

DEVELOPED CRIPPLING MAKES,

SHE TRIED EVERYTHING TO MAKE

THEM GO AWAY.

BUT NOTHING WORKED, UNTIL

SHE HAD A DREAM.

Reporter: FOR FIVE

YEARS, SANGITA SUFFERED FROM

CRIPPLING HEADACHES AND SHE

WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

POTENTIALLY DEADLY BUILDUP

OF FLUID IN THE HEAD.

I COULDN'T DO ANY WORK OR

EVEN GET OUT OF BED.

I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING

CRAZY.

I DIDN'T WANT ANYONE TO TALK

TO ME.

Reporter: SANGITA

PRAYED TO HER HINDU GODS FOR

HEALING.

AND SHE ALSO TRIED DIFFERENT

MEDICATIONS, BUT NOTHING

SEEMED TO WORK.

I CRIED A LOT.

I THOUGHT, OH, GOD, WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO ME.

PLEASE TAKE MY LIFE.

BUT RIGHT AT THAT VERY

MOMENT, I FELT A STRONG URGE

TO TURN ON THE TV.

Reporter: SHE CAME

ACROSS CBN INDIA'S PROGRAM

THAT MEANS A BRAND NEW

LIFE.

THE HOST ASKED PEOPLE TO

JOIN HIM IN PRAYER.

I REPEATED WHAT HE SAID.

THEN HE TOLD US WE COULD

CALL IN FOR MORE PRAYERS.

Reporter: THE

COUNSELLOR PRAYED WITH HER

FOR HEALING AND FINANCES.

SHE SAID, THERE IS

NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

I TOLD HIM THAT I HAVE LOST

SO MUCH.

BUT HE SAID THAT EVERYTHING

I LOST, JESUS WOULD GIVE ME

DOUBLE.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

SANGITA HAD A DREAM.

I SAW A CROSS WITH A

BRIGHT, WARM LIGHT RADIATING

FROM THE CENTER OF IT.

I FELT SO COMFORTED.

I FELT THE ENTIRE SICKNESS

WAS LEAVING MY BODY.

THEN I SUDDENLY WOKE UP.

I FELT SO LIGHT, SO GOOD.

Reporter: SANGITA KNEW

THAT JESUS CHRIST HAD HEALED

HER.

SHE IMMEDIATELY PRAYED TO

ACCEPT HIM AS HER LORD AND

SAVIOR.

AND SHE WASN'T A BIT

SURPRISED WHEN HER DOCTOR

TOLD HER SHE NO LONGER HAD

HYDROCEPHALUS.

ALL OF MY NEIGHBORS KNOW

I COULDN'T DO ANYTHING

BEFORE, BUT NOW I HAVE SO

MUCH ENERGY AND I CAN DO

TWICE THE AMOUNT OF WORK I

THAN I COULD BEFORE I GOT

SICK.

Reporter: SHE CONTINUES

TO GO TO CHURCH AND READ THE

BIBLE AND WATCH CBN'S

PROGRAM.

I WATCH THE SHOW EVERY

DAY.

IT REALLY COMFORTS ME.

Reporter: SHE AND HER

HUSBAND OPENED A SMALL SHOP,

WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO PAY OFF

HER MEDICAL BILLS.

I AM SO HAPPY.

MY GREATEST JOY IS THAT I

MET MY SAVIOR.

COMING UP, A DREAM ONE

AUTHOR NEVER COULD HAVE

SCRIPTED.

FIND OUT WHAT SHE SAW WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Gordon: AS AN AUTHOR,

REBECCA FISHER PENNED THE

NOVEL "ALL OF THE WRONG

PLACES."

BUT SHE DIDN'T JUST WRITE

THE STORY; SHE LIVED IT.

Reporter: WRITING IS

SOMETHING REBECCA FISHER HAS

ALWAYS ENJOYED.

BUT ONE STORY SHE WROTE WAS

PERSONAL.

I WROTE A SHORT STORY,

AND I COULDN'T GET THIS

IMAGE OUT OF MY MIND, OF

THIS YOUNG WOMAN PLEEG

FLEEING FROM THIS ABUSIVE

MARRIAGE.

Reporter: FROM THIS

SHORT STORY, REBECCA WROTE

HER BOOK, THE STORY OF HER

LIFE.

SHE GREW UP IN A BUSY

HOUSEHOLD WITH THREE SIB

SIBLINGS AND WORKING

PARENTS.

SHE FELT LIKE SHE WAS

INVISIBLE.

THE NEED FOR ATTENTION GREW

STRONGER AS SHE ENTERED HER

TEENAGED YEARS.

EVEN THOUGH SHE TRIED TO

COVER IT UP.

I WAS GOOD AT HIDING A

LOT OF THINGS.

I LOOKED HAPPY ON THE

OUTSIDE.

Reporter: REBECCA WENT

TO CHURCH AS A CHILD, AND

SHE WAS A GOOD KID.

BUT ONCE SHE DISCOVERED

BOYS, ALL OF THOSE THINGS

WERE REPLACED.

IT GOT TO THE BREAKING

POINT, AND I FOUND MYSELF

PREGNANT WITH A MAN I HARDLY

KNEW AT ALL.

Reporter: REBECCA

BELIEVED THE RIGHT THING TO

DO WAS TO MARRY THE FATHER

OF HER CHILD.

AFTER THE WEDDING, THEY

MOVED INTO AN APARTMENT,

ATTACHED TO THE FUNERAL HOME

WHERE HER HUSBAND WORK.

REBECCA WAS NOW CONFRONTED

BY DEATH EVERY DAY AND

STARTED ASKING QUESTIONS.

WHERE DID THEY GO?

CLEARLY SOMETHING IS MISSING

FROM THIS BODY.

WHAT IS IT?

AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR

ME AND THIS NEW BABY?

HERE I HAVE THIS BRAND NEW

BABY, NEW LIFE, AND I'M

BRINGING IT HOME TO A PLACE

OF DEATH.

Reporter: THAT WASN'T

THE ONLY PROBLEM.

REBECCA'S MARRIAGE HAD

STRUGGLED FROM THE

BEGINNING.

AS TIME WENT ON, HER HUSBAND

BECAME VERBALLY ABUSIVE AND

EVEN THREATENED TO KILL

HER.

REBECCA KNEW SHE HAD TO

LEAVE.

EVENTUALLY THE MARRIAGE

ENDED.

THAT WAS FRIGHTENING, TO

BE ON MY OWN WITH THIS

LITTLE BABY.

BEING A SINGLE MOM WAS

PROBABLY THE HARDEST THING I

HAVE EVER DONE.

Reporter: WITH LITTLE

MONEY, NO JOB, AND NOWHERE

TO GO, REBECCA REMEMBERED

SOME OF THE THINGS SHE

LEARNED IN CHURCH AS A YOUNG

GIRL.

I HAD SOMEONE TELL ME YOU

HAVE TO NEED GOD LIKE A

DROWNING MAN NEEDS AIR.

AND THAT'S WHEN YOU

EXPERIENCE HIM.

AND THAT'S WHERE I WAS.

I WAS DROWNING AND

DESPERATE, AND I CRIED OUT

TO HIM.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN

EVERYWHERE I TURNED WERE

PEOPLE WHO WERE LOVING ME

UNCONDITIONALLY.

I HAD NEVER FELT THAT

BEFORE, EVER.

Reporter: REBECCA FOUND

WORK AND ENROLLED IN

COLLEGE.

THERE WERE DIFFICULT TIMES,

BUT SHE BELIEVED GOD WAS

PROVIDING FOR HER.

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG

BEFORE I STARTED SAYING,

WHAT ABOUT THIS JESUS

THING?

WHAT IS THAT?

AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

AND I WOULD CRY OUT TO HIM

AGAIN, PLEASE TELL ME -- IF

THIS IS REAL, PLEASE TELL

ME.

Reporter: REBECCA GOT

HER ANSWER IN A DREAM.

I WAS RUNNING FOR SOME

REASON, HOLDING MY DAUGHTER,

RUNNING THROUGH A FOREST.

WE CAME TO AN OPENING, AND

THERE WERE THREE RIVERS IN

THIS FOREST.

SOMETHING CAUGHT MY

ATTENTION, AND I LOOKED TO

THE RIVER OF GUAVA, AND

THERE AT THE END WAS JESUS

STANDING.

I KNEW I HAD TO PUT US INTO

THIS RIVER LAVA, AND I

WASN'T AFRAID ANYMORE.

I SAW HIM.

HE COMFORTED ME.

AND I DID IT.

I WOKE UP.

AND I KNEW HE WAS LORD.

AND I KNEW EVEN THROUGH A

RIVER OF LAVA, HE COULD

BRING ME PEACE.

IT WAS JUST LIKE MY LIFE, IT

WAS SUCH TURMOIL AND HE

BROUGHT ME PEACE THROUGH ALL

OF IT.

Reporter: REBECCA GAVE

HER LIFE TO CHRIST AFTER THE

DREAM.

SHE MET AND MARRIED JEFF,

WHO ALSO HAD A DAUGHTER AND

A STORY SIMILAR TO

REBECCA'S.

OVER THE YEARS, THEIR FAITH

IN JESUS HAS GROWN AS THEY

RAISED TWO TEENAGED

DAUGHTERS TOGETHER.

I LOOK BACK, AND I CAN'T

BELIEVE IT.

I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

I NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT,

SITTING ON OUR COUCH IN THE

MORTUARY, THAT I WOULD BE

HERE ONE DAY.

Reporter: AS REBECCA

WRITES TODAY, SHE REFLECTS

ON HOW FAR SHE HAS COME.

SHE SAYS IT IS ALL BECAUSE

JESUS CHRIST GAVE HER A NEW

LIFE.

I DON'T NECESSARILY

DESERVE IT.

I DON'T KNOW THAT ANY OF US

DESERVE THE LIFE HE HAS IN

STORE FOR US.

BUT HE HAS IT TO OFFER, AND

WE JUST HAVE TO BECOME

WILLING TO TAKE IT.

Gordon: ARE YOU WILLING

TO TAKE IT?

ARE YOU WILLING TO TAKE IT

TODAY?

IF YOU WANT TO MEET HIM, IF

YOU WANT TO KNOW HIM, IF YOU

WANT TO KNOW THAT POWER,

THAT EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF A

RIVER OF LAVA YOU CAN FEEL

PEACE, YOU CAN FEEL SAFE,

YOU CAN FEEL SECURE BECAUSE

YOU KNOW HE IS WITH YOU --

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

YEA THOUGH I WALK THROUGH

THE VALLEY OF DEATH, I SHALL

FEAR NO EVIL, FOR THOU ART

WITH ME.

IF YOU WANT THAT, UNDERSTAND

THAT HE IS LOOKING FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM

JESUS: "BEHOLD I STAND AT

THE DOOR AND KNOCK.

IF ANYONE HEAR MY VOICE AND

OPEN THE DOOR, I'LL COME

IN."

IF YOU WANT WANT HIM IN,

JUST OPEN THE DOOR.

JUST ASK HIM.

AND IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT

RIGHT NOW, JUST BOW YOUR

HEAD WITH ME.

LET'S PRAY A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER.

AND JESUS WILL COME TO YOU.

HE PROMISES TO.

AND HE'LL BE WITH YOU.

HE'LL SEE YOU THROUGH ANY

DIFFICULTY.

AND YOU CAN HAVE THAT PEACE

THAT SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

PRAYER WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, JUST

SAY HIS NAME, SAY IT OUT

LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU.

AND I OPEN THE DOOR OF MY

HEART, AND I ASK THAT YOU

COME IN.

I ASK THAT YOU MAKE ME NEW

AGAIN, THAT YOU MAKE ME

WHOLE.

THAT YOU FORGIVE ME OF THE

THINGS THAT I'VE DONE

WRONG.

THAT YOU WOULD SET ME ON THE

RIGHT PATH.

AND THAT YOU WOULD GUARD AND

PROTECT ME.

AND, JESUS, I ASK RIGHT NOW

THAT YOU FORGIVE ME OF ALL

THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE

WRONG, THAT YOU SET ME FREE

FROM THAT.

AND IF YOU'LL DO THIS, I

WILL WANT TO FOLLOW YOU ALL

OF THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, 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 FILL THEM TO

OVERFLOWING, WITH JOY AND

PEACE AND THE RIGHTEOUSNESS

THAT COMES FROM YOU.

DO IT NOW, FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE

BIBLE SAYS IF YOU'LL BELIEVE

IN YOUR HEART AND THEN

CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH, YOU

SHALL BE SAVED.

WE MADE IT EASY FOR YOU TO

DO THAT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL A

TOLL-FREE NUMBER,

1-888-777-1999.

WHEN YOU CALL, JUST SAY, I

PRAYED WITH THAT GUY ON TV.

I ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO

MY HEART.

I'VE GOT SOMETHING FOR YOU.

IT'S A C.D. TEACHING.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE?

WHAT ARE THE FOUNDATIONS OF

THE FAITH?

IT'S ALL FREE.

THE PHONE CALL IS FREE.

DO IT NOW.

1-888-777-1999.

WELL, THIS IS "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," WHERE WE

INTERACT WITH YOU, AND WE'VE

GOT SOME CHATS IN OUR

CHATROOM.

LET'S GO TO DIMITRIA.

ANGELA SAYS, "I'M MARRIED

AND FAITHFUL TO MY HUSBAND,

BUT I HAVE A LOT OF DREAMS

ABOUT INFIDELITY WITH PEOPLE

I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

DOES THAT MEAN I'M GOING TO

CHEAT ON HIM?"

Gordon: ANGELA, NO, IT

DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE GOING TO

CHEAT ON HIM.

WHAT IT DOES MEAN IS YOU'RE

UNDER A SPIRITUAL ATTACK,

AND IT IS AIMED AT YOUR

FIDELITY TO YOUR MARRIAGE,

AND YOU'RE BEING ENTICED

AWAY.

THERE ARE TWO THINGS I

RECOMMEND FOR YOU: NUMBER

ONE, WHEN YOU GO TO SLEEP

TONIGHT, COMMAND THAT TO

LEAVE AND NOT BE PART OF

YOUR DREAM LIFE.

AND SEE IF THAT HANDLES IT

AND TAKES CARE OF IT.

IF IT DOESN'T, THE NUMBER

ONE THING I RECOMMEND WITH

ANYONE HAVING SEXUAL

THOUGHTS, OR THEY'RE

DOMINATING YOU, AND THEY

KEEP COMING BACK, GO ON AN

EXTENDED FAST.

I'M NOT TALKING ONE OR TWO

DAYS.

FAST FOR A WHOLE WEEK, AND

YOU CAN BREAK THAT IN YOUR

LIFE.

IT CAN COME OUT THROUGH

PRAYER AND FASTING.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM AMOS 3: "INDEED,

THE SOVEREIGN LORD NEVER

DOES ANYTHING UNTIL HE
