Watch the 700 Club Canada for Dec.27, 2013 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE

700 CLUB CANADA.

LAURA LYNN WINTER CAN BE

PRETTY TREACHEROUS.

YES IT CAN.

HAVE YOU BEEN CAUGHT IN

A WINTER STORM BEFORE?

WELL, YOU KNOW, MY DAD

TOOK US OUT IN TUKTOYAKTUK

IN, THERE WAS A BLIZZARD GOING

ON 45 BELOW.

WOW.

AND WE COULDN'T SEE OUR

HAND IN FRONT OF OUR FACE.

WOW.

AND HE SAID WE'RE JUST

GOING TO WALK TWO FEET AND

COME BACK BECAUSE WE DIDN'T

WANT TO GET LOST. SO THAT WAS

MY WINTER STORM. HOW ABOUT

YOU?

YOU KNOW I WAS ON MY

TO MUSKOVKA UP IN MUSKOVKA

WOODS AND I WAS PREACHING

AT A RETREAT AND WE HAD OUR

TOYOTA AVALON. I WAS GOING

UP THOSE HILLS AND IT WAS

ALMOST LIKE SOMEONE WAS

CURLING. IT JUST KEPT COMING

BACK DOWN, RIGHT? AND KAREN

AND GABRIEL, AND MYSELF, WE

GOT CAUGHT ON THE SIDE OF THE

ROAD. AND IT WAS A 20 FOOT

DROP. IT ALMOST DIED AND

SOME GUYS HELPED TO RESCUE

US AND GOD MIRACULOUSLY

SAVED US. I FOUND MY WALLET

THAT WAS LOST IN THE SNOW.

WOW. HOW'D YOUR WALLET

GET OUT THERE?

WELL, WHEN THE GUYS

HELPED TO PUSH US OUT.

YEAH.

KAREN CORRECTED THE

WHEEL AND IT ALMOST ROLLED

OVER THE STERNUM.

AND THEN I DROPPED MY

WALLET OUT OF MY POCKET AND

HAD TO RUN BACK AND FIND IT

AND GOD GAVE IT TO ME.

WOW.

YOU KNOW, ON TODAY'S

SHOW YOU'LL SEE AN INCREDIBLE

STORY OF ONE WOMAN WHO LOST

CONTROL OVER HER CAR DURING A

WINTER STORM AND SLAMMED

INTO A TREE AT, WATCH THIS, 95

KILOMETERS AN HOUR.

YOU KNOW IT'S AN AMAZING

STORY THAT WILL SHOW YOU JUST

HOW POWERFUL HOPE CAN BE.

BUT FIRST, OUR LAST LOOK AT

CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS. THIS IS

ACE COLLINS AND HIS JOURNEY TO

DISCOVER THE MEANING BEHIND

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS.

ALL RIGHT ACE, SO WE CANNOT

NOT HAVE A CHRISTMAS PARTY AT

MY HOSE WITHOUT SIGNING THE

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, DO YOU

KNOW THEM BY THE WAY?

OH YES, 12 DAYS OF

CHRISTMAS, WHO DOESN'T

KNOW THEM.

EXACTLY.

IT'S ISN'T, IT'S THE SILLIEST

SONG IN THE WHOLE WIDE

WORLD.

IT IS SILLY BUT IT'S FUN.

BUT THERE'S MEANING BEHIND

IT, RIGHT?

IF YOU SING IT AND KNOW

WHAT'S BEHIND IT IS REALLY

A SERIOUS SONG BECAUSE

BACK WHEN THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH WAS OUTLAWED IN

ENGLAND, THE CATHOLICS WENT

UNDERGROUND TEACHING THEIR

THEOLOGY, THEIR DOGMA, AND

THEIR DOCTRINE TO THEIR

CHILDREN. ONE OF THE WAYS

WAS THROUGH SONGS. SO THE

ENGLISH PEOPLE WERE SINGING

THE SONG WITHOUT KNOWING

WHAT IT MEANT. THE CATHOLIC

CHILDREN KNEW WHAT IT MEANT.

AND SO EACH ONE OF THOSE 12

DAYS, AND BY THE WAY 12 DAYS

OF CHRISTMAS STARTS ON

CHRISTMAS EVE AND GOES

THROUGH THE DAY OF EPIPHANY.

EACH ONE OF THOSE 12 DAYS

WERE IMPORTANT POINTS OF

FAITH.

INTERESTING, YOU KNOW,

WHICH ONE I'VE ALWAYS BEEN

WONDERING ABOUT? EIGHT

MAIDS A MILKIN'. I'M LIKE

WHERE DID THAT COME UP,

EIGHT MAIDS A MILKEN, WHAT

DOES THAT MEAN?

MILK MEANS WERE SAID AND

PUT IN THAT SONG BECAUSE

THEY WERE THE LOWEST JOB

IN ENGLAND. THE LOWEST OF

THE LOW AND CHRIST CAME NOT

ONLY FOR THE KING'S BUT ALSO

THE LOW.

FIVE GOLDEN RINGS?

FIVE GOLDEN RINGS,

VERY INTERESTING, THE FIRST

FIVE BOOKS OF THE OLD

TESTAMENT, THE TORAH. ALSO,

THINK ABOUT TEN LORDS A

LEAPING?

YEAH.

TEN COMMANDMENTS. 11

PIPERS, 11 DISCIPLES WHO TOOK

THE WORD OUT THERE, THERE

WEREN'T 12, THERE WERE 11

BECAUSE JUDAS DIDN'T TAKE

THE WORD OUT.

OKAY, WHAT IS YOUR

FAVORITE BY THE WAY?

MY FAVORITE IS PROBABLY

THE PARTRIDGE IN THE PAIR TREE,

THE VERY FIRST ONE BECAUSE

THE PARTRIDGE IS THE ONLY BIRD

ON THE PLANET THAT WILL LAY

DOWN IT'S LIFE FOR IT'S NEST.

WHO WOULD LAY DOWN IT'S LIFE

FOR US? CHRIST. THE PARTRIDGE

REPRESENTS CHRIST.

I TELL YOU WHAT, YOU'VE

GIVEN ME A WHOLE NEW

MEANING TO MY FAVORITE SONG,

ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS THAT

WE WANT TO SING REAL QUICK?

WE'LL TRY.

A 12 DRUMMERS

DRUMMING, 11 PIPERS PIPING.

TEN LORDS A LEAPING.

NINE LADIES DANCING.

EIGHT.

MAID'S A MILKING.

MAIDS A MILKING.

SEVEN SWINE'S A

SWIMMING.

SIX GEESE A LAYING.

FIVE GOLDEN RINGS.

FOUR TURTLE DOVES, NO FOUR

(INAUDIBLE). TWO TURTLE DOVES.

AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PAIR

TREE.

WELL IT IS ALMOST THAT TIME

AGAIN, THE 12 DAYS OF

CHRISTMAS AND, YOU KNOW,

WE'RE DISCUSSING SOME OF THE

DIFFERENT TRADITIONS FOUND

ACROSS CANADA AND I AM

FINDING THIS ONE REALLY TOUGH.

I HAVE TO BE HONEST WITH YOU

AT THIS SEASON OF CHRISTMAS.

IT'S A TIME FOR HONESTY.

YES.

OUR, YOU KNOW, PRODUCER

HAS COME UP FROM.

WOW THIS IS GETTING DEEP,

I'M GETTING NERVOUS.

YOU KNOW, LET'S DISCUSS

WHAT THEY DO IN QUEBEC FOR

INSTANCE.

OKAY.

NOW I'VE BEEN TO QUEBEC,

AND I KNOW YOU HAVE AS WELL.

YEAH, I LOVE QUEBEC, YEAH.

BUT THEY HAVE SOME

TRADITIONS AND IT'S TOUGH FOR

ME TO SAY THE WORDS. LIKE I

LOVE THE FRENCH LANGUAGE, IT'S

JUST MAGNIFIQU.

JOE NOEL. SO I AM JUST

GOING TO JUMP OUT EARLY

YES.

SEE THAT'S THE ONLY ONE I

KNEW, OKAY. THANKS BRIAN.

WELL WHAT DON'T YOU KNOW

NOW LAURA LYNN.

WELL, AN AWFUL LOT I DON'T

KNOW. THEY HAVE CRICHES AND

AND THAT IS A NATIVITY SENSE.

IF THERE'S ANYONE FROM

QUEBEC, PLACE FORGIVE ME. I

HAVE BEEN FORCED AND TO TRY

TO SAY THIS IN YOUR WORDS

AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW IT'S

WITH LOVE IN MY HEART.

WELL, IT'S CHRISTMAS,

THERE'S A LOT OF FORGIVENESS

AT CHRISTMAS.

RIGHT. NOW THEY EAT.

WHEN YOU BUTCHER IT,

EVERYBODY WILL KNOW IT.

AND I AM AND THAT'S

WHAT'S SAD.

YEAH.

TORTIER, DO YOU THINK

I'M SAYING IT RIGHT?

YEAH. THAT'S SOUNDS,

TORTIER.

SOUNDS GOOD RIGHT?

YEAH.

SO THEY SAY IT LIKE THAT,

THAT'S A PORK PIE.

OH, WOW.

AND IT'S A VERY TRADITIONAL

MEAL AT CHRISTMAS TIME AS

WELL.

SO AFTER MASS EVERYONE

KIND OF TRANSITIONS.

YES.

AND THEY ENJOY THE

DELICACIES AND.

YES, THEY DO AND THERE'S

ANOTHER THING THAT THEY DO.

NOW, ON JANUARY 6 AFTER THE

DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ARE OVER

THEY CELEBRATE SORT OF THE

END OF THE SEASON. THIS IS

NEAT BECAUSE THEY HIDE A

BEAN INSIDE OF A HOLIDAY CAKE

OKAY,

AND WHOEVER GETS THAT IS

THE KING OR QUEEN. NOW THAT

I FOUND FUN. YOU NOW, I DON'T

KNOW IF YOU GET TO RULE FOR A

A YEAR AND EVERYBODY HAS TO

OBEY YOU.

YEAH.

FOR THE YEAR, THAT

WOULD BE NEAT. THEY SHOULD

ADD THAT.

YOU WOULD JUST BE DIGGING

TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE BEAN.

YEAH, WHERE'S THE BEAN?

YEAH, GET OUT OF THE WAY,

LIKE THROWING THE CEREMONIAL

BRIDAL BOUQUET.

SURE, LOFT DAY DUE ROY.

LOFT DAY DO ROY. AND WHAT

IS THAT? THAT'S THE ACTUAL?

THAT IS THE BEAN CAKE.

COULD YOU SAY THAT AGAIN?

YOU KNOW I'M SORRY,

SAY THAT AGAIN.

QUEBEC, I LOVE YOU.

PLEASE SAY IT AGAIN.

LOFT DAY DUE ROY. IT'S

WRONG ISN'T IT?

IT'S CHRISTMAS.

YOU KNOW.

THIS IS MY BEST GIFT.

RIGHT, YOU KNOW.

THIS IS MY BEST GIFT.

YEAH. RIGHT YOUR LETTERS

TO JEFF. HE'S THE ONE THAT

YOU'LL WANT TO REALLY ATTACK

ABOUT THIS. THEY ALSO HAVE

BULASE.

BULASE?

YEAH.

TELL ME WHAT THAT IS?

YEAH, SMALL MEATBALLS.

BULASE, I THINK I'M SAYING THAT

RIGHT, OR BULETS.

OH, BULASE.

I THINK IT'S WRONG, YEAH.

WOW.

IN ANY CASE DO YOU KNOW

WHAT I'M HAPPY ABOUT?

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE PLUM

PUDDING,

I DON'T KNOW. PLUM

PUDDING, OKAY.

THAT SIMPLE.

THAT'S A WESTERN TRADITION,

THAT'S A TYLER TOSS.

YES, TYLER TOSS.

YOU GOT ME LAUGHING.

YEAH. WE'RE GOING TO

HAVE CRANBERRY SAUCE.

THAT'S GOOD, CRANBERRY

SAUCE? THAT'S EASY.

AND STUFFING.

YEAH.

WHICH IS EASY TO SAY. I

DON'T, HOW DO YOU THINK IT IS

TO SAY STUFFING IN QUEBEC?

PORK PIE.

SUFFYE? STUFFYE?

YEAH.

I'M SORRY. WRITE YOUR

LETTERS TO JEFF.

YEAH, WELL.

MERRY CHRISTMAS.

IF YOU'RE ENJOYING THIS

CHRISTMAS LIKE I'M ENJOYING

THIS CHRISTMAS, AND MORE OF

THOSE TRADITIONS TO LAURA

LYNN, UP NEXT THIS IS WHY

AMBER NESBITT IS CALLED THE

CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.

A WINTER STORM WAS

MAKING DRIVING TOUGH.

AMBER NESBITT SWERVED TO

AVOID A DEER IN THE ROAD. SHE

LOST CONTROL OF HER CAR AND

SLAMMED INTO A TREE AT

60MPH. RESCUE WORKERS HAD

LITTLE HOPE THAT SHE WOULD

EVEN SURVIVE THE TRIP TO THE

HOSPITAL. HER PARENTS, JOHN

AND JOANNE NESBITT,

REMEMBER GETTING A CALL.

WHAT THE WOMAN SAID AT

THE HOSPITAL, YOU NEED TO

GET HERE AS QUICKLY AS YOU

CAN, BUT DRIVE AS SAFE AS YOU

CAN.

IT WAS THE LONGEST RIDE OF

MY LIFE.

BUT EVEN GETTING TO THE

HOSPITAL WAS A CHALLENGE.

JOHN AND JOANNE HAD TO

TRAVEL THE SAME ICY ROAD THAT

CAUSED AMBER'S WRECK.

I JUST SAID, 'GOD, I WANT TWO

WARRING ANGELS. NOT ANGELS

PLAYING HARPS. I WANT TWO

WARRIORS BY MY DAUGHTER'S

HEAD.' I COULD FEEL IT. I CAN

STILL FEEL IT. BECAUSE I KNEW

THAT GOD WOULD WATCH OVER

MY DAUGHTER. I JUST KNEW IT.

WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT THE

HOSPITAL, THEY GOT BAD NEWS.

AMBER HAD MASSIVE HEAD

TRAUMA, A NECK FRACTURE,

MULTIPLE FACIAL FRACTURES, A

FRACTURED HIP AND A COLLAPSED

LUNG. SHE WAS IN A COMA. BUT

MOST OF ALL AMBER'S DOCTORS

WORRIED ABOUT THE SWELLING OF

HER BRAIN. THEY PUT AMBER

ON HIGH DOSES OF MEDICATION

TO KEEP THE SWELLING DOWN,

BUT IT DIDN'T SEEM TO BE

WORKING.

THE THREAT OF THE BRAIN

SWELLING WAS THAT IT WOULD

SWELL SO MUCH AND PUSH

DOWN ON THE BRAIN STEM, AND

THEN THAT CREATES DEATH.

NORMAL PRESSURES IN THE

BRAIN ARE FROM 15 TO 20, AND

SOME OF AMBER'S SPIKES WERE

UP INTO 65.

THEY WERE REALLY

CONDITIONING US THAT SHE WAS

GONNA PASS ON, THAT SHE WAS

GOING TO DIE.

AGAINST THE ODDS, AMBER

SURVIVED THE FIRST FEW CRITICAL

DAYS. HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY

SPENT CHRISTMAS AT THE

HOSPITAL. FOR AMBER'S FRIEND,

DR. CHASE MILLER, IT WAS AN

ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT SITUATION.

TO KNOW HOW SERIOUS HER

CONDITION WAS, IT WAS A

FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCE AND I

WAS VERY CONCERNED THAT WE

WERE GOING TO LOSE HER.

TWO DAYS AFTER CHRISTMAS,

AMBER'S DOCTOR PULLED THE

FAMILY ASIDE.

HE SAID MY BEST

PERCENTAGE OF HER SPEAKING

ANOTHER WORD OR REGAINING

CONSCIOUSNESS IS ZERO. I SAID

I KNOW YOU'RE TELLING ME THE

TRUTH. I APPRECIATE THAT I

KNOW YOU'RE NOT LYING TO ME.

BUT I SAID TO HIM, HEAVEN IS

MY SOURCE. I COULD FEEL THAT

INTIMIDATION. I COULD FEEL THAT

PRESSURE COME OFF MY BACK. I

KNEW I HAD TO BELIEVE IN

GOD'S PROMISES. THE

OPPOSITE OF THAT IS UNBELIEF.

SO I SAID MY DAUGHTER'S

GONNA BE HEALED, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

AND I CAN REMEMBER

TALKING TO CHRISTOPHER, MY

SON-IN-LAW, AND I JUST SAID,

'THIS IS NOT GOD. HE IS NOT

GOING TO ALLOW HER TO LAY IN A

NURSING HOME, HOOKED UP TO

A VENTILATOR.

SO WHAT MADE YOU FEEL

LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE

WHAT THE PROGNOSIS WAS?

YOU KNOW WE KNEW WHAT

THEY WERE SAYING. WE KNEW

WHAT IT WAS LEADING TOWARDS,

THAT THAT THE BRAIN SWELLING

WAS GETTING WORSE. THEY

COULDN'T KEEP THE NUMBERS

DOWN TO CONTROL IT. BUT I JUST

HAD A PEACE ABOUT IT. I JUST

BELIEVED THE WORD OF GOD

WAS TRUE.

AMBER'S SISTER, JENNIFER AND

HER HUSBAND, CHRISTOPHER

ALSO BELIEVED.

AND MY WIFE LOOKED AT

MY FATHER IN LAW, LOOKED

AT ME, HE SAID 'WELL GOOD.

NOW WE HAVE SOMETHING TO

PROVE 'EM WRONG ABOUT.'

AND IT WAS JUST LIKE A 2 X 4 IN

MY SPIRIT. AND I REALIZED THAT

THERE WAS THIS DETERMINATION

THAT WE'RE GONNA GO FORWARD,

NO MATTER WHAT ANYBODY

SAYS.

AMBER'S LOVED ONES FILLED

HER HOSPITAL ROOM WITH

SCRIPTURE, PRAISE, AND PRAYER.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD PRAYED FOR HER AND

BELIEVED GOD FOR HER HEALING.

WE WERE SENDING OUT

EMAILS TO OUR CONNECTIONS ALL

OVER THE WORLD. AND NATIONS

WERE PRAYING, CONFERENCES

WERE PRAYING FOR HER. IT WAS

AMAZING HOW GOD USED

TECHNOLOGY TO ALLOW THAT

RIPPLE TO REALLY TOUCH THE

WHOLE BODY OF CHRIST

GLOBALLY.

THEN, ON DECEMBER 30TH.

THE NURSE SPOKE

SOMETHING LOUDLY, YOU

KNOW, AND AMBER LOOKED AT

ME AND SHUT HER EYES. IT WAS

THE FIRST TIME I'D SEEN HER

OPEN HER EYES.

AND IT WAS JUST LIKE

THIS MOMENT WHERE THINGS

TURNED. IT WAS A GOD

MOMENT.

AMBER WAS WAKING UP!

THE PROCESS WAS SLOW, AND

AMBER'S DOCTORS WERE

CONFUSED. ALL THE SCANS STILL

SHOWED INTERRUPTED BRAIN

ACTIVITY. BUT EACH DAY

BROUGHT AN IMPROVEMENT.

YOU KNOW AND IT JUST

KEPT, EVERY DAY KEPT GETTING

BETTER AND BETTER AND BETTER.

ON JANUARY 6, AMBER BEGAN

BREATHING ABOVE HER

VENTILATOR. SOON HER

INTRACRANIAL PRESSURE

DROPPED TO NORMAL LEVELS AND

REMAINED THERE. THEN ON

JANUARY 19, AMBER DID

SOMETHING THE DOCTORS SAID

WOULD NEVER HAPPEN: SHE

SPOKE. LESS THAN A WEEK LATER

SHE WAS TRANSFERRED TO REHAB

AT ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL.

SHE WAS AT A PLACE WHERE

WE AS DOCTORS COULD HAVE

ABSOLUTELY NO CONTROL OVER.

EVERYTHING WAS GOING WRONG.

IT WAS AT THIS POINT WHERE HIS

GLORY WAS REVEALED

AND SHE WAS HEALED.

THE GIRL WHO HAD A ZERO

PERCENT CHANCE OF SURVIVAL

HAD DEFIED THE ODDS AND THE

PROGNOSES OF THE DOCTORS.

AND SHE HAD A LITTLE

SOMETHING TO SHARE WITH HER

DAD.

I REMEMBER WAKING UP

SEEING TWO ANGLES, ONE ON

EACH SIDE OF MY BED. THEN

THAT'S WHAT MY DAD HAD

PRAYED FOR ON THE WAY TO THE

HOSPITAL. NO ONE TOLD ME

THAT. WHEN I WOKE UP I JUST

SAW THEM.

AFTER SPENDING 35 DAYS IN

INTENSIVE CARE, AMBER WENT

THROUGH NINE WEEKS OF REHAB.

ON FEBRUARY 20, AMBER TOOK

HER FIRST STEPS WITH

ASSISTANCE. SHE SPENT THE

NEXT THREE WEEKS IN

OUTPATIENT REHAB. AT THE END

OF MARCH 2006, AMBER WAS

DISCHARGED FROM THE HOSPITAL

FOR GOOD, LESS THAN FOUR

MONTHS AFTER THE ACCIDENT!

WHAT THE DEVIL MEANT FOR

EVIL, THE LORD MEANT FOR

GOOD. SO EVEN THOUGH WE

WONDER WHY THINGS LIKE THIS

HAPPEN, GOD'S JUST GONNA USE

IT FOR HIS GLORY. MY FAVORITE

VERSE IS JEREMIAH 29:11,

WHICH SAYS, 'FOR I KNOW THE

PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, DECLARES

THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER

YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, TO

GIVE YOU A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.'

YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT NO GREATER LOVE HAS NO

MAN THAN HE WHO LAYS DOWN

HIS LIFE AND JESUS LAID IT ALL

DOWN FOR US SO WE COULD

HAVE WHAT WE HAVE TODAY. SO

THAT AMBER COULD BE HEALED

AND WHOLE. I'M JUST IN AWE AT

HIS WONDERFUL LOVE FOR US.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE STORY.

YOU KNOW, AMBER WOKE UP

AND SHE SAW TWO ANGLES

BESIDE HER. THOSE SAME

ANGLES THAT HER DAD HAD

PRAYED WOULD WATCH OVER

HERE WHEN HE WAS ON HIS WAY

TO THE HOSPITAL. DO YOU KNOW

WHAT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS?

PSALMS 91:11, SAYS FOR HE

SHALL GIVE IS ANGLES CHARGE

OVER YOU, TO KEEP YOU IN ALL

YOUR WAYS. IS THAT BEAUTIFUL?

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE BEEN

IN A SITUATION. YOU NOW,

EARLIER IN THIS SHOW BRIAN WAS

DESCRIBING HOW HE HAD BEEN

IN THIS TERRIBLE CAR ACCIDENT.

YOU KNOW WHAT, WE HAVE GOT

ANGLES WATCHING OVER US AND

THEY ARE, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE

GOING THIS WAY AND I KNOW FOR

ME, MY ANGLES, THE HAVE TO

HELP ME JUST WALK DOWN THE

HALL WAY. I'M A LITTLE CLUTSEY,

YOU KNOW, AND SO I GIVE THEM

A LOT OF EXTRA WORK. BUT I AM

GRATEFUL THAT FROM THE

MOMENT THAT WE ARE BORN

HE HAS PUT ANGLES IN CHARGE

OVER OUR LIVES. SOMETIMES

I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS A BIT

CRAZY BUT I'LL TALK TO THEM

I'LL BE LIKE HEY, HOW ARE YOU

DOING? I MEAN, DO YOU HAVE A

NAME OR, THEY DON'T ANSWER

YET BUT I'M JUST, I'M BLESSED.

I'M BLESSED THAT OUR FOOT WILL

NOT STUMBLE BECAUSE GOD

WATCHES OVER US. THAT'S

HOW SIGNIFICANT WE ARE

AND OF COURSE, LET'S NOT

FORGET THAT THE WORD

OF GOD SAYS TO BE CAREFUL TO

ENTERTAIN STRANGERS. YOU

NEVER KNOW WHEN ONE OF

THOSE STRANGERS MIGHT BE

AN ANGLE.

AMEN, AND LAURA LYNN,

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT AND

I LOVE WHAT THE SCRIPTURE

SAYS. HE SAID, THEY KEEP

US IN ALL OUR WAYS AND YOU

KNOW WE HAVE SOME WAYS

TOO THAT WE REALLY HAVE TO

WORK OVERTIME TO KEEP

US IN THOSE WAYS. AND THANK

GOD. IF WE PUT OUR LOVE UPON

HIM. THAT'S PSALMS 91. HE

SAYS HE WILL BE CALLED AND

HE WILL ANSWER.

YOU KNOW THE MISSION OF

HEY WELCOME TO THIS HOPE

TO GO. I LOVE EVERY TIME WE

GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO INTO

THE WORD BECAUSE IN THE

WORD WE CAN FIND EVERY

SOLUTION TO EVERY SITUATION

THAT WE FACE IN LIFE. AS WE

GET READY TO CLOSE OUT 2013

AND WE GO INTO 2014, I GOT A

VERY SIMPLE MESSAGE FOR YOU

TODAY. IT'S YES OR NOW. YOU

CHOOSE. YOU KNOW, LIFE IF

FULL OF OPTIONS YET ALL THE

CHOICES WE MAKE, ALL THE

DECISIONS WE FACE ULTIMATELY

COME DOWN TO JUST TWO SMALL

WORDS. YES AND NO. YES AND

NO ARE TWO OF THE SHORTEST

YET, MOST POWERFUL WORDS

IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

BECAUSE THEY HAVE SUCH

FINALITY. THOSE TWO SMALL

WORDS IN THE ENGLISH

LANGUAGE. BECAUSE THEY HAVE

SUCH FINALITY. THOSE TWO

WORDS PACK SUCH A PUNCH

THAT MANY LONGER WORDS

DON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO

AND SO OFTEN, WE HAVE A

HARD TIME SAYING THOSE TWO

LITTLE WORDS BECAUSE THEY'RE

DEFINITIVE IN NATURE. WE

WOULD RATHER RIDE THE FINS

THAN LET PEOPLE KNOW EXACTLY

WHERE WE STAND. WE'VE

LEARNED TO USE THOSE YES AND

NO FOR THE RIGHT THINGS AND AT

THE RIGHT TIMES AND THEN WE

WILL SEE POWER IN OUR LIFE.

WHEN WE DISCOVER THE POWER

OF THE YES AND THE NO, THEN

WE'RE GOING TO SEE SOME

THINGS COME AND SOME THINGS

GO. MATHEW 537 SAYS IT THIS

WAY. BUT LET YOUR YES BE YES

AND YOUR NO BE NO. FOR

WHATEVER IS MORE THAN THESE

IS FROM THE EVIL ONE. NOW,

THE INFERENCE HERE IN THE

SCRIPTURE IS THAT GOD KNOWS

THAT OUR TENDENCY IS TO

VACILLATE OR TO SLIP INTO

A STATE OF WONDERING,

MOVING WITHOUT VISION,

WITHOUT PASSION, WITHOUT

PURPOSE. NOW, THE VERY REAL

DANGER THAT WE FACE AS

CHRISTIANS IS THAT OF

BECOMING RELIGIOUS,

SUBSTITUTING ROUTINE, FOR

RELATIONSHIP AND FORM

FOR POWER. SECOND TIMOTHY

3:5 SAYS IT THIS WAY AND I LOVE

THIS. HE SAYS HAVING A FORM

OF GODLINESS BUT DENYING THE

POWER THEY'RE OF. NOW,

THE APOSTLE PAUL GOES ON

AT FIRST CORINTHIANS 120 SAYS

FOR ALL THE PROMISES OF GOD IN

HIM ARE YES, AND IN HIM

AMEN. TO THE GLORY OF GOD

THOUGH US NOW HE WHO

ESTABLISHES US WITH YOU

IN CHRIST, AND HAS ANOINTED

US IN GOD. VERSE 22 AND THE

LAST: WHO ALSO HAS SEALED US

AND GIVEN US THE SPIRIT IN OUR

HEARTS AS A GUARANTEE.

YOU'VE GOT A SUPERNATURAL

POWER INSIDE OF YOU. NOW

THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE NOT

YES AND NOW. THEY'RE NOT NO,

I DON'T KNOW OR MAYBE SO.

THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE

YES. WILL HE SAVE YOU?

YES. WILL HE HEAL YOU?

YES. WILL HE DELIVER YOU?

YES. WILL HE SET YOU FREE?

YES. WILL HE SUPPLY YOUR

NEEDS. YES, THE PROMISES

OF GOD ARE YES AND THE

PROMISES OF GOD ARE AMEN.

JESUS HIMSELF SAID IN

REVELATIONS 114 THAT HE IS

THE AMEN, FAITHFUL AND TRUE

WITNESS, THE BEGINNING OF THE

CREATION OF GOD. JESUS IS THE

AMEN. AMEN MEANS IN

SCRIPTURE, SO BE IT. AMEN

MEANS IT'S ALREADY DONE.

THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE

ARE YES. THE PROMISES OF

GOD ARE SO BE IT. THE

PROMISES OF GOD ARE IT'S

ALREADY DONE. EVERY PROMISE

IN THE BIBLE, YES AND AMEN.

BUT EVERY PROMISE IN THE

BIBLE IS CONDITIONAL. IN

CHRIST JESUS. THE PROBLEM OF

THAT IS ENTERING THE PROMISES

OF GOD WHILE GOD IS SAYING

YES, IT'S ALREADY DONE TO WHAT

WE WANT. GOD'S PEOPLE ARE

SAYING, WELL I DON'T KNOW IF I

CAN DO IT. I DON'T KNOW IF I

WANT TO. WHILE GOD IS SAYING

YES, IT'S ALREADY DONE TO WHAT

WE NEED GOD'S PEOPLE ARE

SAYING NO, I DON'T WANT TO DO

IT TO WHAT HE NEEDS US TO DO.

WELL GOD IS LOOKING FOR SOME

YES MEN AND YES WOMEN

GOING INTO 2014. SO IF YOU

BELIEVE IT, ALL THE PROMISES

IN THE BIBLE, YOU CAN CLAIM

IN THE DAY BECAUSE THEY ARE

YES AND AMEN. IN JESUS

CHRIST, GET A HOLD OF THEM

AND GET A HOUND DOG

TENACITY. I'M NOT LETTING GO.

YES GOD, YOU CAN COUNT ON

ME AND THAT IS YOUR HOPE TO

GO.

YOU NOW, WAY BACK IN THE

OLD TESTAMENT I LOVE THE WAY

BRIAN DID THAT, RR. I DON'T

KNOW IF I CAN DO IT THE SAME

AS HE CAN BUT IN JOSHUA

24:15, JOSHUA SAID, CHOOSE

YOU THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL

SERVE, BUT AS FOR ME AND MY

HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE LORD

AND YOU KNOW WHAT? HE WILL

NEVER LET YOU DOWN. COMING

UP NEXT, HIDDEN SECRETS

FOUND IN THE BIBLE. THIS IS JOE

AMMERAL.

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE

PASSAGES THAT'S FOUND IN LUKE

CHAPTER 4 VERSUS 16 THROUGH

20. THERE'S A STORY THERE

THAT HAS AGAIN, THAT AS

CANADIANS, AS NORTH

AMERICANS WHEN WE READ

IT I DON'T THINK WE'RE GOING

TO GET THE FULL IMPACT OR THE

INTENT OF THE STORY WITHOUT

KNOWING THE BACKGROUND. IT

SAYS IN LUKE THAT JESUS WENT

BACK TO NAZARETH AND IT WAS

THE SABBATH AND IT WAS THIS

CUSTOM AND SO HE WENT THERE

AND WE FORGET. JESUS ACTUALLY

LEFT NAZARETH. IF YOU

REMEMBER WHEN HE GOT

THERE HE LEFT BECAUSE HE SAID

NOBODY BELIEVED HIM AND HE

COULD DO ONLY BUT A FEW

MIRACLES SO HE LEFT AND HE

WENT BACK TO CAPERNAUM.

SO WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD

JESUS GO BACK TO NAZARETH?

IT'S A VALID QUESTION. AND

THEN WHEN HE GETS THERE HE

STANDS UP RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE SERVICE. HE WALKS UP

TO THE FRONT AND THEY JUST,

THEY HAND HIM THE SCROLL OF

ISIAH AND HE READS IT.

NOBODY'S UPSET THAT HE'S

INTERRUPTING THE SERVICE. AND

A LOT OF TIMES WHEN WE READ

THE SCRIPTURE WE DON'T TAKE

INTO CONSIDERATION THE

CULTURE OF THE TIME. AND

THEN HE READS THE SCROLL THAT

WAS HANDED TO HIM. HE ROLLS

IT UP, HE PASSES IT BACK TO THE

(INAUDIBLE) THEN HE SITS AND

EVERYBODY IN THE SYNAGOGUES

IS LOOKING AT HIM. AND

EVERYBODY SAYS IT'S BECAUSE

THAT'S A DAY AND YOU'RE

HEARING THAT THIS HAS BEEN

FULFILLED. BUT IF YOU GO BACK

AND LOOK AT THE TEXT IN LOTUS

THAT HE HASN'T SAID ANYTHING

YET. ALL HE'S DONE IS HE STOOD

UP, HE'S READ THE SCROLL THAT

WAS HANDED TO HIM AND THEN

HE SAT DOWN. THAT'S IT.

SO HOW DID HE SIT? WHERE

DID HE SIT? WHY IS THAT SO

IMPORTANT? FOR US TO REALLY

GET THE POWER BEHIND WHAT

WAS GOING ON, WE'VE GOT TO

GO BACK AND UNDERSTAND THE

STRUCTURE OF WHAT A

SYNAGOGUE SERVICE WAS

LIKE DURING THE TIME OF THE

FIRST CENTURY. DURING THE

BABYLONIAN EXILE THEY

DESTROYED THE CITY, THEY

DESTROYED THE TEMPLE, ALL

THE JEWS WERE TAKEN AS

SLAVES AND BROUGHT INTO

BABYLON AND TO FURTHER

SHAME THE JEWS WHAT THEY

DID WAS THEY BURNED UP AND

DESTROYED ALL OF THE SCROLLS.

AND SO THE RABBIS WERE

AFRAID THAT ALL THE PEOPLE

WE'RE GOING TO LOSE THE

WORD OF GOD. AND SO TO

PRESERVE THE WORD. THE

RABBIS BEGAN TO TAKE

PORTIONS OF THE BIBLE AND

ALLOCATE THEM TO CERTAIN

FAMILY MEMBERS AND THEN

THAT FAMILY WOULD BE

RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT PORTION

OF SCRIPTURE. SO, THINK ABOUT

THIS. WHY DOES JESUS COME

BACK TO THE SYNAGOGUE THAT

DAY? BECAUSE ISIAH, LISTEN, OF

ALL VERSES ISIAH 62 WAS GIVEN

TO THE FAMILY OF JESUS. THEY

WERE RESPONSIBLE TO READ

THAT PORTION IN SYNAGOGUE

EVERY WEEK. SO AS YOU

UNDERSTAND THE BACKGROUND,

AS YOU UNDERSTAND THE

CULTURE, YOU KNOW WHY HE

WENT THAT DAY. HE SAT IN A

SPECIAL SEAT CALLED THE SEAT

OF MOSES RESERVED FOR THE

MESSIAH. AND WHEN HE SAT

DECLARING HIMSELF TO BE THE

MESSIAH. AND SO MANY TIMES

WE DON'T GET THE FULL IMPACT

OF THE STORY BECAUSE WE

DON'T KNOW THE CULTURE. BUT

AS WE UNDERSTAND THE

CULTURE, AS WE UNDERSTAND

WHY PEOPLE DID THINGS

THE WAY THEY DID, WHY

THE LAWS WERE IN PLACE,

ALL OF THESE THINGS. WHEN

WE GET THE CULTURE, WE

UNDERSTAND SO OFTEN WHY

JESUS DID WHAT HE DID AND IT

BRINGS GREATER UNDERSTANDING

AND CLARITY AND POWER TO HIS

TEACHINGS.

LAURA LYNN I LOVE THAT.

YOU KNOW I WAS IN NAZARETH

AT THAT SAME SPOT WHERE

JESUS SAT DOWN AND IT JUST

CAUSED EVERYONE TO JUST GO

BANANAS WHEN HE SAID THAT.

SO I LOVE THAT PART OF

SCRIPTURE BECAUSE HE CLOSED

THE BOOK AND HE SAID THIS IS

FULFILLED IN THIS DAY. ONLY

JESUS CAN DO STUFF LIKE THAT

GOD JESUS, GO JESUS.

WOW.

I'M JUST SAYING. I'M

HIS CHEERLEADER.

YOU ARE.

JESUS, AND YOU KNOW

WHAT, I ALSO LOVE WHEN WE

GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY

FOR YOUR REQUESTS AND THOSE

THINGS THAT YOU SEND IN. WE

TAKE THEM SERIOUS HERE

AND WOULD YOU ALSO AGREE

WITH US? WE HAVE A COUPLE

OF THEM. WE'VE GOT EVELYN

FROM WHELAN'S, SHE HAS A

GRANDSON AND HE'S GIVEN HER

A TOUGH TIME. AND SHE'S

PRAYING FOR CURTIS. WOULD

YOU PRAY FOR THAT, WRITE THAT

DOWN AS WELL. AND WE ALSO

HAVE A DEBBIE AND DEBBIE IS

FROM RICHMOND BRITISH

COLUMBIA. HER SON DANIEL IS

DEALING WITH A LEG INJURY.

LET'S BELIEVE GOD WITH THIS.

THE BIBLE IS SO CLEAR THAT HE

SAYS THAT HE IS THE GOD THAT

HEALTH US, HE IS THE GOD OUR

SAVOIR, AND THAT IS AND I WANT

YOU TO WRITE THAT DOWN,

NAME OF JESUS, WE COME INTO

GRACE OF GOD ON HER LIFE AND
