Even the doctor says that a miracle occurred in Kimberly's operating room. Plus, Kristine mixed Christianity with the occult and it led her down a spooky path. Read Transcript


I WENT IN THERE AND I

REALIZED THERE WAS A DEMON

AND THIS PLACE.

Gordon: A GHOST HUNTER

GETS SPOOKED.

IT SCARED ME BECAUSE IT

SOUNDED INHUMAN.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES,

LET'S GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWS DESK.

GORDON, MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE ACROSS THE COUNTRY

ARE STARTING OFF THE NEW

YEAR WITH ARCTIC COLD

TEMPERATURES.

FROM THE GREAT PLAINS TO THE

MIDEAST, FORECASTERS SAY

WE'RE SEEING SOME OF THE

COLDEST AIR OF THE SEASON.

BUT AS CAITLIN BURKE

REPORTS, THAT DIDN'T STOP

MASSIVE CROWDS FROM

GATHERING TO RING AND THE

NEW YEAR.

Reporter: MASSIVE

CROWDS BRAVED FREEZING

TEMPERATURES TO WELCOME IN

THE NEW YEAR.

IN NEW YORK CITY, MILLIONS

WATCHED THE WATERFORD BALL

DROP, CELEBRATING IN A

BLIZZARD OF CONFETTI.

[YELLING]

[CHEERING]

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Reporter: IN CHICAGO,

FIREWORKS LIT UP THE SKY.

CROWDS WELCOMING IN THE NEW

YEAR AND BRACING FOR AT

LEAST SIX INCHES OF SNOW.

IN PORTLAND, MAINE, THESE

PEOPLE BRAVED THE COLD FOR A

NEW YEAR'S 5K RUN AND PLUNGE

INTO THE OCEAN.

FABULOUS.

IT'S FREEZING.

IT IS A GREAT THING TO DO

ON NEW YEAR'S EVE.

YOU BOND WITH EVERYBODY WHO

DOES IT WITH YOU.

Reporter: FORECASTERS

SAY IT WON'T BE GETTING

WARMER ANY TIME SOON, AND A

LARGE PART OF THE COUNTRY

COULD START OFF THE NEW YEAR

SNOWED IN.

THE STORM IS GOING TO

AFFECT THE LARGE AREA.

THERE WILL BE ENOUGH SNOW TO

CAUSE TRAVEL DLIES I DELAYS

IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS FROM

CHICAGO TO DENVER.

Reporter: AND THAT SNOW

WILL AFFECT CITIES FROM

WASHINGTON, D.C. ALL THE WAY

UP TO NEW ENGLAND.

SIX TO 12 INCHES OF SNOW

EXPECTED IN SOME AREAS.

2014 IS GOING TO START

OFF BRUTALLY COLD ACROSS THE

EASTERN HALF OF THE UNITED

STATES, WITH A DEPARTING

SNOWSTORM, AND WE COULD BE

LOOKING AT MORE COLD AND

MORE SNOW EARLY NEXT WEEK.

Reporter: AND

FORECASTERS WARN THAT JUST

AS THAT STORM IS MOVING OUT,

THERE IS A CHANCE THAT

ANOTHER WILL BE MOVING IN.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

OBAMACARE GOES INTO

EFFECT TODAY.

JUST AS IT FACES STILL

ANOTHER LEGAL CHALLENGE.

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SON

SONYA SODEMYER HAS BLOCKED A

REQUEST FROM CATHOLIC GROUPS

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THE MANDATE FORCES RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS TO PROVIDE

HEALTH INSURANCE THAT IN

CLUES BIRTH CONTROL.

THE MANDATE VIOLATES THEIR

BELIEFS.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS UNTIL

FRIDAY MORNING TO RESPOND TO

HER ORDER.

THAT IS JUST ONE THE MANY

PROBLEMS FACING OBAMACARE.

A RECENT POLL SHOWED THAT

PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR THE LAW

HAS HIT AN ALL-TIME LOW.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PASTOR IN

CHIEF IS SHARING SOME OF HIS

OWN THOUGHTS ON OBAMACARE

AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

JOSHUA DEBEAU HAS COMPILED

SOME OF THE DAILY DEVOTIONS

HE SENDS THE PRESIDENT IN

HIS NEW BOOK "THE

PRESIDENT'S DEVOTIONAL."

AND HE ALSO SHARES

OBSERVATIONS ABOUT THE

PRESIDENT AND ISSUES FACING

THE WHITE HOUSE, INCLUDING

THAT BIRTH CONTROL MANDATE

THAT PITTED MANY CHRISTIANS

AGAINST HIS BOSS.

Reporter: YOU WRITE

THAT YOU FELT YOU WERE THE

ONLY PERSON IN THE

ADMINISTRATION ADVOCATING

TOR FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

AND YOU WRITE, "THEIR

INABILITY TO MAKE THIS SMALL

CONCESSIONS TO RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS SEEMS

UNREASONABLE AT BEST, AND AT

WORST, DESTRUCTIVE."

THE THING ABOUT THAT

ESSAY IN THE BOOK "THE

PRESIDENT'S DEVOTIONAL," WAS

HOW I HAD TO LEARN TO DEAL

BETTER WITH DISAGREEMENTS.

I STARTED IN A PLACE WHERE I

WAS QUESTIONING THEIR

MOTIVES AND INTEGRITY AND SO

FORTH, AND GOD REALLY SHOOK

ME UP AND SAID YOU CAN HAVE

A PASSIONATE DISAGREEMENT ON

A REALLY IMPORTANT ISSUE,

BUT YOU'VE STILL GOT TO

TREAT OTHERS WITH LOVE AND

RESPECT.

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

DEVOTIONALS HE SENDS TO THE

PRESIDENT ARE CENTERED ON

JESUS.

THE FEDERAL AVIATION

ADMINISTRATION SAYS ALASKA,

NEVADA, NEW YORK, AND NORTH

DAKOTA, TEXAS AND VIRGINIA

WILL ALL BE HOME TO NEW

RESEARCH SITES.

IN THE PAST, DRONES HAVE

BEEN MAINLY USED BY THE

MILITARY, BUT THAT HAS BEEN

CHANGING.

THE NEW TEST SITES WILL

PROVIDE VALUABLE INFORMATION

FOR NEW DRONE SAFETY INTO

THE DOMESTIC SKIES.

THERE ARE MANY CIVIL

APPLICATIONS THAT YOU DON'T

HEAR MUCH ABOUT, BUT YOU'LL

HEAR MORE ABOUT IN THE NEXT

FEW YEARS.

Reporter: MANY

POLITICIANS AND ACTIVISTS

HAVE VOICED THEIR CONCERNS

ABOUT SURVEILLANCE DRONES

AND VIOLATING AMERICANS'

PRIVACY.

THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE

CONTROL AND PREVENTION SAYS

HIGH LEVELS OF SEASONAL

INFLUENZA ARE ALREADY BEING

SEEN IN SOUTHEASTERN PARTS

OF THE COUNTRY.

THE CBC SAYS THE MAIN STRAIN

IS H1N1.

THE C.D.C. IS URGING

EVERYONE TO GET VACCINATED.

THOSE ARE TODAY'S TOP

STORIES FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: COMING UP

LATER...

I WENT IN THERE, AND I

REALIZED THAT THERE WAS A

DEMON IN THIS PLACE.

Gordon: A GHOST HUNTER

GETS SPOOKED.

IT SCARED ME BECAUSE IT

SOUNDED INHUMANE.

Gordon: THE PROOF OF

WHAT SHE HEARD.

THIS IS, LIKE, A REAL

CLIP OF AUDIO.

Gordon: AND HOW IT

HAUNTED HER.

Gordon: EILEEN DENNY

HAS A THRIVING MEDICAL

PRACTICE ON ONE OF THE

ISLANDS OF HAWAII.

IT SOUNDS LIKE PARADISE, AND

IT IS NOW.

BUT NOT LONG AGO, DR. DENNY

WAS STRUGGLING JUST TO PAY

THE BILLS.

Reporter: EILEEN DENNY

HAS BEEN A CANCER DOCTOR FOR

OVER 30 YEARS.

HER ONCOLOGIST PRACTICE HAS

HELPED THOUSANDS OF PATIENTS

ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.

I WAS SUCCESSFUL -- VERY

BUSY, BUT SUCCESSFUL, IN

SOLO PRACTICE, MAKING A GOOD

INCOME, AND I WAS ABLE TO

PROVIDE AND EVEN SAVE IN THE

BANK ACCOUNT FOR A RAINY

DAY.

Reporter: HER RAINY DAY

CAME IN 1998.

HER FATHER HAD BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER, AND

EILEEN MOVED TO HAWAII TO

CARE FOR HIM AND HER

MOTHER.

JUST TWO MONTHS AFTER SHE

ARRIVED, HER FATHER PASSED

AWAY.

SHE DECIDED TO STAY IN

HAWAII AND SET UP HER

ONCOLOGIST PRACTICE, BUT SHE

HAD FEW PATIENTS AND A LOT

OF OVERHEAD.

I DIDN'T KNOW THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY.

USUALLY IN ONCOLOGIST, YOU

NEED REFERRALS, AND I WASN'T

GETTING THE PATIENTS.

SO FOR FIVE YEARS, I WASN'T

EVEN MAKING OVERHEAD.

I COULDN'T PAY THE BILLS,

NOT REALLY.

AND I SAW THE MONEY GOING

DOWN AND DOWN, AND MY INCOME

NOT GOING UP.

Reporter: BUT AS A

CHRISTIAN, EILEEN BELIEVED

SHE NEEDED TO BE FAITHFUL TO

TITHING, EVEN IN THE MIDST

OF HER FINANCIAL CRISIS.

I LIKE TO OBEY THE WORD.

AND IT TALKS ABOUT TITHING,

GIVING 10%, AND IT IS

SOMETHING IN YOUR SPIRIT

THAT I FEEL IS THE RIGHT

THING BECAUSE MY MONEY IS

NOT MY MONEY.

WHATEVER I EARN, IT COMES

FROM GOD.

SO 10% IS A SMALL AMOUNT.

Reporter: BUT THE

PRESSURE FROM HER FINANCIAL

SITUATION STILL WEIGHED

HEAVILY ON EILEEN.

I REMEMBER AT ONE MOMENT

JUST CRYING OUT TO GOD, HELP

ME LORD.

I CANNOT CARRY THIS HOUSE, I

CAN'T CARRY THE BILLS WITH

WHAT INCOME I HAVE.

Reporter: SHORTLY AFTER

HER PRAYER, SHE HAD A

BREAKTHROUGH.

SHE WAS INVITED TO JOIN A

TEAM OF DOCTORS AT A CLINIC

ON THE ISLAND OF CU KUAUI.

TODAY MY FINANCES HAVE

BEEN RESTORED AND MORE.

GOD IS SO FAITHFUL.

AND I'VE LIVED LONG

ENOUGH -- I'M IN MY 60s --

THAT I CAN SEE OVER AND OVER

AND OVER THAT HE IS SO

FAITHFUL.

AND WHEN I'M GOING TO

WHATEVER TRIAL, I JUST CLAIM

THAT PROMISE AND I STAND

FIRM ON IT, THAT HE IS

FAITHFUL.

Gordon: AND WHAT HE HAS

DONE FOR EILEEN, HE WILL DO

FOR YOU.

HE IS FAITHFUL.

HERE IS THE PROMISE, AND IT

IS THE ONLY TIME IN THE

BIBLE WHERE WE GET TO TEST

GOD.

MALACHI 3: 10: "BRING ALL OF

THE TITHES INTO THE

STOREHOUSE THAT THERE MAY BE

FOOD IN MY HOUSE.

AND TEST ME IN THIS, IF I

WILL NOT OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN AND I WILL POUR OUT A

BLESSING THAT THERE WILL NOT

BE ROOM ENOUGH TO RECEIVE

IT."

THAT PROMISE IS AVAILABLE TO

YOU TODAY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ON THE

FIRST PART OF IT, ACTIVATE

IT AND SAY I'M GOING TO

TITHE.

IT IS THE LAW OF

RESIPROCITY.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN

UNTO YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, THE BIRTH

OF A CHILD IS SUPPOSED TO BE

A HAPPY TIME.

BUT WHEN BABY ANNIE'S FATHER

FIRST SAW HER, HE ACTUALLY

CONSIDERED KILLING HIMSELF,

AND YOU'RE ABOUT TO SEE

WHY.

Reporter: BUILT BABY

ANNIE WAS BORN WITH A CLEFT

LIP.

SHE IS DOUGLAS AND ANNA'S

ONLY CHILD.

AT THE HOSPITAL, A DOCTOR

TOLD THEM TO SCHEDULE

SURGERY RIGHT AWAY FOR THE

BABY, BUT THEY COULD NOT

AFFORD IT.

WHEN I LOOK AT HER ON THE

BED.

I WOULD BEGIN TO CRY.

I ASKED GOD TO HEAL HER, TO

SEND SOMEONE TO OPERATE ON

THE CHILD.

Reporter: DOUGLAS'

REACTION WAS EVEN MORE

HEARTBREAKING.

I WAS SO DISTRESSED.

I WOULD CRY.

AND AT TIMES THE IDEA OF

KILLING MYSELF CAME INTO MY

MIND.

Reporter: ONE DAY ANNA

SAW A FLIER FOR "OPERATION

BLESSING," WHICH WAS

OFFERING FREE CLEFT LIP AND

PALATE SURGERIES.

ANNA APPLIED, AND A FEW DAYS

LATER "OPERATION BLESSING"

CALLED.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

IT WAS A MIRACLE.

I WAS NOT EXPECTING IT AT

ALL.

Reporter: BABY ANNA'S

SURGERY WAS SUCCESSFUL.

A FEW DAYS LATER WE WENT

BACK TO SEE HOW THE YOUNG

FAMILY WAS DOING.

I FEEL SO GRATEFUL TO

THOSE WHO HELPED OUR LITTLE

GIRL.

THEY ARE WONDERFUL.

I'M GRATEFUL THAT MY

DAUGHTER HAS A NEW SMILE AND

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

THANK YOU.

Terry: YOUKNOW HERE IN

AMERICA, IF A BABY IS BORN

WITH A CLEFT LIP, CLEFT

PALATE LATE, IT IS SURGICAL

CORRECTED ALMOST

IMMEDIATELY.

BUT IN OTHER PARTS OF THE

WORLD, FAMILIES DON'T REALLY

HAVE THE MONEY TO DO THIS.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT

INCREDIBLY EXPENSIVE, THEY

DON'T HAVE THE MONEY, NOR DO

THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO

SAVE FOR IT.

THEY'RE SCRAPING BUY JUST TO

SURVIVE.

WE SEE THIS ALL TIME AROUND

THE WORLD.

WHERE IT IS POSSIBLE, WE DO

COME IN AND MAKE A CHANGE,

LIKE WAS MADE IN BABY

ANNIE'S INSTANCE.

SHE'LL HAVE A SMILE FOR THE

REST OF HER LIFE.

SHE'LL BE ACCEPTED BY

PEOPLE.

SHE WILL BE ABLE TO HOLD A

JOB BECAUSE SHE CAN SPEAK

CORRECTLY.

AND SHE'LL BE ABLE TO EAT.

AND ALL BECAUSE YOU CARED.

700 CLUB MEMBERS ARE DOING

THAT ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, JOIN WITH THE REST

OF US.

BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO

SAYS, I WANT TO BE A WORLD

CHANGER.

YOU CAN DO THAT BY JOINING

"THE 700 CLUB."

A GENERAL MEMBERSHIP IS 65

CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH,

AND WE WELCOME YOU TO THE

FAMILY OF MINISTRIES HERE,

REACHING OUT TO THE WORLD

WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS

CHRIST.

YOU JOIN WITH US BY CALLING

THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER YOU

SEE ON YOUR SCREEN,

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU JOIN, WILL YOU USE

SOMETHING WE CALL PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES ALL

OF THE WORK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER

ANYTHING.

BUT IT SAVES US IN

PROCESSING COSTS, SO WE CAN

PUT MORE OF YOUR GIFT INTO

THE LIVES OF PEOPLE LIKE

BABY ANNIE.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

IS TO SEND YOU OUR "POWER

FOR LIFE" TEACHINGS.

THEY'LL BLESS YOU, AND

YOU'LL KNOW YOU'RE MAKING A

DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE ELSE'S

LIFE.

Gordon: UP NEXT, A

HUSBAND TOOK AN INTEREST IN

A WOMAN ONLINE, SO THIS WIFE

TOOK UP AN INTEREST OF HER

OWN.

I WAS A MEDIUM, AND SO I

GOT ON THE INTERNET AND I

SEARCHED GHOST-HUNTING

GROUPS IN MY AREA.

Gordon: WATCH WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN THIS GHOST

HUNTER WAS SPOOKED BY HER

PREY.

Terry: AFTER HER

HUSBAND HAD AN ONLINE

AFFAIR, CHRISTINE MCGUIRE

DEVELOPED AN INTEREST OF HER

OWN, GHOST HUNTING.

BUT ONE NIGHT THE CHRISTINE

CAUGHT HER PREY ON TAPE, AND

SHE GOT THE SCARE OF HER

LIFE.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

MCGUIRE WAS DEEPLY INVOLVED

IN THE OCCULT AND GHOST

HUNTING.

BUT ONE NIGHT SHE REALIZED

SHE WAS IN WAY OVER HER

HEAD.

I WENT IN THERE AND IT

WAS A VERY ACTIVE NIGHT.

WE HAD SOME VERY STRANGE

THINGS HAPPEN.

AND I REALIZED THAT THERE

WAS A DEMON IN THIS PLACE.

EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS A

FULL-FLEDGE WITCH, CHRISTINE

STILL CONSIDERED HERSELF A

CHRISTIAN.

HER HUSBAND TOM EXPLAINS.

SHE HAD BLENDED

CHRISTIANITY WITH

WITCHCRAFT.

WHICH WE'VE NOW COME TO KNOW

AS A TERM OF "SYNCROTISM,"

WHICH IS TAKING DIFFERENT

RELIGIONS AND BLENDING THEM

TOGETHER.

BASICALLY I TOOK PARTS OF

THE BIBLE AND TOOK IT FOR

WHAT I WANTED IT TO MEAN AND

FOLDED IT INTO WITCHCRAFT.

Reporter: CHRISTINE WAS

RAISED IN A CHRISTIAN HOME,

BUT WHEN SHE AND TOM STARTED

HAVING PROBLEMS IN THEIR

MARRIAGE, THEY QUESTIONED

THEIR FAITH.

THAT'S WHEN THINGS KIND

OF STARTED TO FALL APART IN

OUR MARRIAGE AND IN OUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

Reporter: AFTER TOM HAD

AN EMOTIONAL AFFAIR WITH A

WOMAN ONLINE, HE AND

CHRISTINE SEPARATED.

I FELT ABANDONED BY GOD.

I DIDN'T HAVE CONTROL OVER

MY DESTINY.

AND I WANTED TO CONNECT WITH

A FEMININE ENERGY.

I WANTED TO CONNECT WITH A

GODDESS, AND SO I FELT THAT

FEMININE ENERGY.

I THINK THAT'S WHY I WAS SO

DRAWN TO IT, BECAUSE IT

APPEALED TO ME AS A WOMAN.

Reporter: OVER THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS, CHRISTINE DOVE

DEEPER INTO WITCHCRAFT.

BUT SHE COULDN'T SHAKE THE

FEELING THAT GOD WAS TRYING

TO GET HER ATTENTION.

THE HOLY SPIRIT, HE JUST

PRODDED ME FROM DAY ONE.

HE WOULD -- YOU KNOW, I

WOULD SAY HE WAS POKING ME

WITH A STICK, YOU KNOW,

TRYING TO HELP ME TO COME TO

MY SENSES.

BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, I KNEW

WHAT I WAS DOING WAS WRONG,

BUT I CHOSE TO IGNORE THAT.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY STARTED GHOST

HUNTING.

BY THAT TIME I WAS A

MEDIUM AND COMMUNICATING

WITH SPIRITS ON MY OWN.

I WAS WATCHING THIS AND

GOING, WELL, I COULD DO

THAT.

SO I GOT ON THE INTERNET AND

I SEARCHED GHOST-HUNTING

GROUPS IN MY AREA.

Reporter: AT THE SAME

TIME, TOM REDEDICATED HIS

LIFE TO GOD AND TRIED TO

RECONCILE WITH CHRISTINE.

I CALLED AND TOLD HER

THAT I THOUGHT WE OUGHT TO

GET BACK TOGETHER, THAT GOD

HAD A GREATER PLAN THAN WHAT

WE HAD.

WE WERE REUNITED, AND HE

KNEW I WAS A GHOST HUNTER,

MEDIUM AND A WITCH.

I DECIDED THIS TIME I

WOULD KIND OF GO WITH THE

FLOW AND I WOULD PRAY FOR

HER A LOT, AND KIND OF BE

THAT PILLAR FOR HER.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

REFUSED TO CHANGE.

BUT ONE NIGHT SHE REALIZED

THAT HER CHOICES COULD HAVE

SEVERE CONSEQUENCES.

I REALIZED THAT THERE WAS

A DEMON IN THIS PLACE.

AT ONE POINT I FELT LIKE I

SHOULD COMMAND THIS SPIRIT

TO LEAVE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

THERE WAS AND AUTHORITY THAT

I HADN'T USED IN YEARS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YOU

ARE GOING TO LEAVE.

YOU'RE UNINVITED.

NOW HE IS GOING TO GO WHERE

JESUS SENDS HIM.

THE INTERESTING THING WAS

WE DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING

HAPPEN AT THAT TIME.

BUT A FEW DAYS LATER, I GOT

AN E-MAIL WITH A FILE

ATTACHED TO IT THAT HAD AN

AN ELECTRONIC VOICE

PHENOMENON, AND IT HAPPENED

TO BE THE CLIP FROM WHEN I

TOLD THIS SPIRIT IT HAD TO

LEAVE IN JESUS' NAME.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

YOU'RE GOING TO LEAVE.

YOU'RE UNINVITED.

NOW HE IS GOING TO GO WHERE

JESUS SENDS HIM AND NOT COME

BACK.

AND WHAT YOU HEAR IS WHAT

CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A

SCREAM.

IT WAS THE STRANGEST THINGS

I'VE EVER HEARD.

IT SCARED ME, TO BE QUITE

HONEST.

BECAUSE IT SOUNDED

INHUMANE.

[SCREAMING]

I HAD JUST HEARD A DEMON

REACT TO THE TRUE, HONEST

POWER OF JESUS' NAME.

I SENT THE FILE TO MY

HUSBAND.

BEING AN AUDIO ENGINEER,

I TOOK IT INTO MY LAPTOP,

AND I LOOKED AT IT IN WAY

FORMS TO SEE WHO EDITED

THIS, AND IT IS NOT THERE.

SO THIS IS LIKE A REAL CLIP

OF AUDIO.

AND SO IT REALLY FREAKED HER

OUT.

AND SHE STARTED REALIZING

THAT THERE WAS POWER IN

JESUS' NAME.

AND HE WASN'T JUST,

YOU KNOW, A GOOD GUY THAT

SHE SHOULD LISTEN TO, BUT

THAT HE WAS THE SON OF GOD.

Reporter: CHRISTINE

KNEW THEN SHE COULD NEVER

COMBINE WITCHCRAFT AND

SPIRITUALISM WITH

CHRISTIANITY.

I REALIZED THAT I HAD

BEEN FOOLED.

I HAD GIVEN MYSELF OVER TO

DEMONS, AND IT WAS AT THAT

MOMENT THAT I LITERALLY GOT

DOWN ON MY FACE AND JUST

POURED MY HEART OUT TO THE

LORD AND BEGGED FOR HIS

FORGIVENESS.

I RENOUNCED EVERYTHING I HAD

BEEN INVOLVED IN.

Reporter: TOM KNEW THAT

GOD HAD ANSWERED HIM.

I BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

I KNEW JUST PRAYING A LOT,

EVENTUALLY THINGS WOULD TURN

AROUND.

I HAD FAITH THAT GOD COULD

DO IT.

THAT MEANT MORE TO ME

THAN ANYTHING.

TO KNOW THAT MY HUSBAND, HE

JUST ACCEPTED ME WHERE I WAS

AT AT THAT TIME AND LOVED ME

ENOUGH TO TRUST ME TO GOD'S

HANDS.

Reporter: TODAY SHE

WARNS OTHERS ABOUT THE

DANGERS OF THE OCCULT.

YOU MIGHT NOT NECESSARILY

BE INVOLVED OR EVEN DABBLING

IN MAGIC OR GHOST HUNTING OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT YOU

START READING ABOUT IT, YOU

START WATCHING TELEVISION

PROGRAMS, YOU START WATCHING

MOVIES AND SEARCHING ON THE

INTERNET, AND I THINK

PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING I WOULD SAY IS READ

THE BIBLE AND UNDERSTAND THE

POWER THAT IS BEHIND THESE

THINGS IN THE OCCULT BECAUSE

IT IS A VERY REAL POWER.

IT IS VERY REAL AND ITS ONLY

INTENT IS OUR SPIRITUAL

DESTRUCTION.

I'M SO THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL

FOR GOD PULLING ME OUT OF

THAT DECEPTION AND OUT OF

THAT LIFE OF HARASSMENT THAT

I DIDN'TEVEN REALIZE I WAS

LIVING.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE

POWER OF JESUS.

THE POWER OF JESUS, IT

SAVES.

IT FORGIVES.

IT LOVES.

JESUS IS EVERYTHING.

Terry: IT'S

RESURRECTION POWER.

IT REDEEMS THINGS THAT ARE

LONG LOST, DEEPLY LOST.

GOD'S POWER IS AMAZING.

YOU KNOW, SO OFTEN PEOPLE

GET INTO JUST EXPLORING SOME

OF THE THINGS CHRISTINE WAS

INTO BECAUSE THEY FEEL OUT

OF CONTROL IN THEIR

SITUATION.

THEY FEEL POWERLESS WITH

SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE

HAPPENING TO THEM.

THEY SEARCH FOR A PLACE

WHERE THEY CAN CONTROL.

DON'T MESS AROUND WITH

THINGS LIKE THIS.

GOD IS REAL.

AND THERE IS A TRUE ENEMY OF

GOD.

THERE IS A DEVIL.

THERE ARE DEMONS.

THERE IS A DARK WORLD THAT

YOU AND I ARE NOT MEANT TO

EXPLORE.

WE WERE CREATED TO LIVE IN A

GARDEN WITH GOD FOREVER.

YOU CAN HAVE A DEEP

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

TODAY.

HE WANTS TO LOVE YOU.

HE WANTS TO KNOW YOU.

HE IS ABLE TO PROVIDE

EVERYTHING THAT YOU NEED,

BUT THE POWER IS HIS.

NOT YOURS.

NOT MINE.

IT'S HIS.

YOU SAW, AS CHRISTINE WAS

READING THE WORD, IT

SAID, "MAN CANNOT SERVE TWO

MASTERS."

YOU CAN'T.

AND GOD IS JEALOUS FOR YOU.

HE IS JEALOUS FOR YOU TODAY

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU SO

MUCH.

THAT'S WHY ONE OF THE

COMMANDMENTS IS. "THOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD,

THY GOD, WITH ALL OF THIGH

HEART, WITH ALL OF THY SOUL,

AND WITH ALL OF THY MIND."

YOU CAN'T SERVE TWO

MASTERS.

TODAY WILL YOU RENOUNCE ANY

OF THE THINGS THAT YOU'VE

BEEN INVOLVED IN, THAT HAVE

BEEN OUTSIDE OF THE REALM

AND THE WILL AND THE POWER

OF GOD?

ANYTHING THAT YOU'VE

ATTACHED YOURSELF TO,

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS IN ALL

OF THE WRONG PLACES.

LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL OF

THE WRONG PLACES.

COME HOME TO THE HEART OF

JESUS TODAY.

THAT'S WHY HE CAME.

THAT'S WHY HE DIED.

TO SET YOU FREE.

HE SAID WE WOULD KNOW THE

TRUTH, AND IT WAS THE TRUTH

THAT WOULD SET US FREE.

AND THEN HE SAID, "I AM THE

TRUTH."

COME TO JESUS TODAY.

DON'T SETTLE FOR SECOND

BEST.

DON'T SETTLE FOR A

COUNTERFEIT.

COME TO THE ONE WHO LOVED

YOU ENOUGH TO GIVE

EVERYTHING HE HAD FOR YOU.

WILL YOU PRAY WITH ME RIGHT

NOW.

LET'S JUST INVITE JESUS INTO

OUR HEARTS AND LIVES AND

RENOUNCE ANYTHING THAT WOULD

SEPARATE OR DIVIDE US FROM

HIM.

PRAY WITH ME.

LORD, I WANT TO KNOW YOU

TODAY.

I ADMIT THAT IN MY

FRUSTRATION, IN MY

INPATIENCE, IN MY FEAR AND

ANXIETY, I HAVE LOOKED TO

OTHER THINGS FOR MY PEACE,

FOR MY POWER, FOR MY JOY.

AND I JUST WANT TO RENOUNCE

ALL OF THOSE THINGS TODAY.

I RENOUNCE ANY INVOLVEMENT

IN THE OCCULT.

I RENOUNCE DRUG USAGE.

I RENOUNCE DEPENDENCY ON

ANYTHING, OTHER THAN YOU,

LORD, AND I ASK YOU, JESUS,

TO COME INTO MY HEART TODAY

TO FORGIVE MY SINS.

ALL OF THEM, GOD.

FROM THE SMALLEST TO THE

LARGEST, YOU KNOW EVERY

ONE.

I AM SAYING I AM SO SORRY.

I AM ASKING FOR A NEW

BEGINNING, NOT BECAUSE I

DESERVE IT, BUT BECAUSE YOU

ARE MERCIFUL, GOD.

TODAY, WILL YOU BE THE

SAVIOR OF MY SOUL AND THE

LORD OF MY LIFE?

COME IN, JESUS, TO THE VERY

CORE OF ME.

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

AS I READ THE BIBLE, OPEN IT

UP TO ME.

OPEN THE EYES AND THE EARS

OF MY UNDERSTANDING SO I CAN

KNOW YOU.

SO I CAN HEAR YOU WHEN YOU

SPEAK TO MY HEART.

I WANT TO BE SET FREE.

I WANT THE GIFT OF ETERNAL

LIFE THAT YOU OFFER.

I RECEIVE THAT TODAY.

THANK YOU, FATHER, FOR

LOVING ME, FOR HOUNDING ME,

FOR WAITING FOR ME, FOR

MAKING A PLAN AND A PURPOSE

FOR MY TOMORROW, AS WELL AS

FOR MY TODAY.

I RECEIVE IT ALL TODAY IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, THERE ARE STEPS THAT

YOU NEED TO TAKE TO HELP

YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE GROW.

AND WE'VE PUT TOGETHER A

LITTLE PACKET JUST FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY," AND

IT IS FILLED WITH

INFORMATION FROM THE WORD OF

GOD.

ALSO PAT HAS PUT TOGETHER A

D.V.D. FOR YOU.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW THAT

YOU'VE PRAYED THIS PRAYER?

HOW DO YOU GROW IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS?

THIS IS COMPLETELY FREE.

AND SO IS THE PHONE CALL.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I PRAYED

THAT PRAYER, AND I WOULD

LIKE THE "NEW DAY" PACKET.

IF YOU'VE BEEN DELVING INTO

THE OCCULT, WE'VE GOT A

BROCHURE FOR YOU AND IT

TELLS YOU WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS ABOUT IT.

JUST INDICATE YOU WOULD LIKE

IT WHEN YOU CALL.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB," SO STAY WITH

US.

Gordon: COMING UP

LATER, A COWBOY WITH A

TEXAS-SIZED ADDICTION.

I NEVER WAS A GUY WHO

COULD, LIKE, HAVE A DRINK.

Gordon: AND A MONSTER

HANGOVER.

IT WAS LIKE YOU HIT ME

RIGHT IN THE FOREHEAD.

Gordon: HOW HE GOT ON

THE WAGON FOR GOOD.

THEY THINK I MUST HAVE

SNORTED SOMETHING UP MY NOSE

AND WENT CRAZY.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

UTAH IS TAKING ITS BATTLE

AGAINST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE TO

THE NATION'S HIGHEST COURT.

ON TUESDAY THE STATE FILED

AN EMERGENCY APPEAL WITH THE

SUPREME COURT TO STOP GAY

MARRIAGES.

SAME-SEX UNIONS BECAME LEGAL

IN UTAH WHEN A FEDERAL JUDGE

STRUCK DOWN THE STATE'S

VOTER-APPROVED BAN.

THAT DECISION LED TO MORE

THAN 900 GAY MARRIAGES IN

THE STATE.

NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF THEIR

RESIDENTS ARE MORMONS.

THEY SAY THEY STAND BY ITS

SUPPORT FOR TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE AND HOPES A HIGHER

COURT VALIDATES ITS BELIEF

THAT MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A

MAN AND A WOMAN.

THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST

CONVENTION IS CRITICIZING A

POLITICAL RULING BY

POLYGAMY.

IT SAYS DECRIMINALIZING

POLYGAMY PUTS VULNERABLE

WOMEN AND CHILDREN AT RISK.

THE DECISION RECENTLY HANDED

DOWN BY A FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS

A UTAH LAW THAT FORBIDS

COHABITATION WITH ANOTHER

PERSON VIOLATES THE FIRST

AMENDMENT.

IT DOES MEAN POLYGAMIST

FAMILIES WHO LIVE TOGETHER

CANNOT BE PROSECUTED.

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: STEVE DIDN'T

NEED A PARTY FOR AN EXCUSE

TO GET DRUNK.

ANY TIME WOULD DO.

THEN ONE MORNING HE WOKE UP

WITH THE MOTHER OF ALL

HANGOVERS.

SO HE DECIDED TO HAVE A

LITTLE TALK WITH JESUS.

Reporter: WORKING AS A

HORSE AUCTIONEER ISN'T JUST

A JOB FOR STEVE FRISCO, IT'S

A PASSION.

HE ALSO LOVES CALF ROPING

AND SPENDING TIME WITH HIS

WIFE, ROBIN.

BUT YEARS AGO, STEVE'S

FAVORITE ACTIVITIES WERE

OVERSHADOWED BY HIS LOVE FOR

ALCOHOL.

I NEVER WAS A GUY WHO

COULD, LIKE, HAVE A DRINK

AND THEN GO HOME.

IF I HAD ONE, I WAS GOING TO

HAVE TWO.

IF I HAD TWO, I WAS GOING TO

HAVE 12.

AND IF I HAD 12, THEN SOME

TIME IN THE NIGHT I WAS

GOING TO BECOME RICH,

HANDSOME, AND BULLET-PROOF

ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

Reporter: STEVE HAD HIS

FIRST DRINK WHEN HE WAS JUST

NINE YEARS OLD.

HIS PARENTS WENT TO CHURCH,

BUT THEY WERE HEAVY

DRINKERS.

AS AN ADULT, STEVE

DISCOVERED THAT ALCOHOL GAVE

HIM SOMETHING HE HAD ALWAYS

LONGED FOR.

IT MADE ME LIKED.

IT MADE ME POPULAR.

IT MADE ME FIT IN.

AND I MAY NOT CAN ROPE AS

GOOD AS ANYBODY.

I MAY NOT HAVE AS MUCH MONEY

AS ANYBODY ELSE.

BUT WHEN WE'RE AT THE BAR,

YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE ME.

HOWEVER MUCH IT COSTS,

YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE ME.

Reporter: BUT THE

ALCOHOL DIDN'T JUST MAKE

STEVE POPULAR.

IT TURNED HIM INTO A MAN HE

BARELY KNEW.

IT JUST GUMMED ME DOWN TO

A GUY I DIDN'T WANT TO BE.

EVERY TIME I SOBERED UP, I

DIDN'T WANT TO BE THAT GUY.

THAT'S NOT WHO I WANTED TO

BE, AND I KNEW IT.

Reporter: HIS POOR

JUDGMENT SPILLED OVER INTO

HIS MARRIAGE.

I COULD SPEND MONEY ON

THE DUMBEST STUFF.

I COULD BUY DRINKS FOR

EVERYBODY.

YOU KNOW, YOU COULD GAMBLE.

YOU COULD JUST DO -- JUST

BUY STUFF.

JUST DO DUMB STUFF.

Reporter: STEVE'S

DRINKING AFFECTED HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS

CHILDREN THE MOST.

I USED LANGUAGE A MAN

SHOULD BE CRUCIFIED FOR, IN

FRONT OF MY CHILDREN.

I WASN'T MEAN AND ABUSIVE.

I WAS JUST VULGAR.

STUFF LIKE THAT.

IT'S NO GOOD.

Reporter: ONE MORNING

AFTER A NIGHT OF DRINKING,

STEVE WOKE UP WITH HIS USUAL

HANGOVER AND A REVELATION:

HE WAS TIRED OF HIS DRUNKEN

LIFESTYLE.

AND I GOT UP THAT MORNING

AND HAD TO GO TO WORK.

AND I WAS SICK, WITH CAPITAL

SICK.

IT WAS BAD.

IT WAS LIKE YOU HIT ME RIGHT

IN THE FOREHEAD WITH A TOP

NECK.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY

LEFT.

AND I JUST LAID THERE IN

THAT BED, AND I THOUGHT NOW

I'VE GOT TO PUT MY GAME FACE

ON AND GO AUCTIONEER THIS

HORSE AND PRETEND LIKE I'M

FINE.

AND I'M NOT FINE.

AND I TOLD THAT FRIEND OF

MINE, I SAID, I AIN'T

DRINKING NO MORE.

I'M DONE.

THEY KIDDED ME.

HE TOLD EVERYBODY AND THEY

LAUGHED AT ME AND THEY

PICKED ON ME ALL WEEKEND.

Reporter: BUT STEVE WAS

SERIOUS ABOUT HIS NEW

COMMITMENT.

HE JUST DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO

KEEP IT.

ON THE RIDE HOME AFTER THE

AUCTION, HE DECIDED TO TALK

TO GOD.

THAT NIGHT I CALLED ON

JESUS.

FOR SOME ODD REASON I DID

THAT.

NOBODY TOLD ME HOW TO PRAY

THIS PRAYER.

I JUST CALLED ON JESUS.

AND I MET HIM.

HE SAID, WHAT DO YOU WANT?

I SAID, I WANT TWO THINGS: I

WANT TO BE A GOOD HUSBAND

AND I WANT TO BE A GOOD

DAD.

AND I DON'T WANT TO DO

ANOTHER THING AWAY FROM HOME

THAT I'M ASHAMED TO TELL MY

FAMILY WHEN I GET BACK.

AND ALCOHOL IS TURNING ME

LOOSE TO BE AN IDIOT, AND I

DON'T WANT IT ANYMORE.

I WANT RID OF IT RIGHT NOW.

HE SAID, IF YOU'LL GIVE ME

ALL OF IT, I'LL GET RID OF

THAT.

AND I SAID, I'M ALL YOURS.

AND IT MOVES ME EVERY TIME

AT HOW AWESOME IT IS FOR A

GUY LIKE ME IN THE CAB OF A

PICKUP TO HAVE YOUR SINS

FORGIVEN.

Reporter: HE DROVE HOME

THAT NIGHT AND STARTED A NEW

LIFE.

HE STARTED READING HIS BIBLE

AND GOING TO CHURCH WITH HIS

FAMILY.

IT IS PRETTY AMAZING WHEN

YOU PULL IN YOUR HOUSE AND

YOU TELL YOUR FAMILY, GET

UP, WE'RE GOING TO GO TO

CHURCH.

I JUST GOD SAVED, AND YOU

DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT

MEANS.

THEY THINK I MUST HAVE

SNORTED SOMETHING UP MY NOSE

OR SOMETHING AND WENT

CRAZY.

THE GUY WANTS TO GO TO

CHURCH.

Reporter: STEVE SAYS HE

HASN'T HAD A DROP OF ALCOHOL

SINCE.

AS I'VE GROWN TO FEAR THE

ABSENCE OF GOD IN MY LIFE,

FEAR OF DISAPPOINTMENT IN

GOD, I GOT TO WHERE I JUST

DESPISE EVIL.

I HAD TO GET AWAY FROM THE

ALCOHOL BECAUSE IT WAS SO

DANGEROUS IN MY LIFE AND I

DIDN'T KNOW IT.

JESUS SAVED ME ON THE SIDE

OF THAT ROAD, SIGNIFIED BY

PUTTING HIS SPIRIT IN ME.

HE FORGAVE MY SIN AND HE

GAVE ME A CHANCE TO BECOME

CHRIST-LIKE.

Gordon: HE'LL GIVE YOU

THAT SAME CHANCE.

HE IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR OTHERS,

HE WILL DO FOR YOU.

AND THE AMAZING THING IS HE

DIED FOR YOU, JUST FOR YOU.

IF YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE TO

EVER BELIEVE, HE STILL WOULD

HAVE COME JUST FOR YOU.

YOU'RE THAT IMPORTANT TO

HIM.

HE LOVES YOU THAT MUCH.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO SPEND

ANOTHER MOMENT WITHOUT YOU.

THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS.

THE GOOD NEWS THAT WE NEED

TO TELL EVERYONE.

YOU KNOW, HOW IMPORTANT YOU

ARE TO GOD.

AND WHETHER YOU'RE IN THE

CAB OF A PICKUP OR SITTING

RIGHT NOW AT HOME, ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS ASK HIM.

NOW, WHAT DID STEVE ASK?

HE SAID, I JUST WANT TO BE A

GOOD HUSBAND AND A GOOD

FATHER.

AND IF YOU CAN DO THAT, CAN

YOU DO THAT FOR ME?

JESUS ANSWERED, IF YOU GIVE

ME ALL OF IT.

IF YOU GIVE ME ALL OF IT.

AND THAT'S THE KEY.

DON'T HAVE SECRET PARTS OF

YOUR LIFE, PARTS THAT GOD

DOESN'T HAVE.

GIVE HIM ALL OF IT.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM WITH IT.

HE IS THE ONE THAT CREATED

YOU, AND HE HAS CREATED YOU

FOR GOOD THINGS.

HE HAS CREATED YOU FOR JUST

A MINUTE HE HAS CREATED YOU

JOY.

HE HAS CREATED ALL OF THAT

FOR YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT BEFORE

THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH,

BEFORE THE HEAVENS WERE

ROLLED OUT, BEFORE ALL OF

THAT, HE WAS THINKING ABOUT

YOU.

AND HE WAS THINKING THAT

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE PLANS

AND A FUTURE AND A HOPE AND

GOOD THINGS TO WALK INTO.

NOW, THAT'S AN AMAZING GOD.

THAT'S AN AMAZING STORY.

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

ASK FOR IT.

THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO.

NOW, DO YOU HAVE TO HIT

BOTTOM LIKE STEVE DID?

NO.

DO YOU HAVE TO WAKE UP AND

SAY I HATE WHAT I'VE

BECOME?

NO.

YOU CAN DO IT RIGHT NOW.

THE BIBLE SAYS, WHEN YOU

SEEK ME WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, THEN YOU'LL FIND ME.

AND IF YOU ASK HIM, HE'LL

COME.

IF YOU ASK HIM TO SPEAK TO

YOU, HE'LL SPEAK.

IF YOU ASK HIM TO SHOW UP,

HE'LL SHOW UP.

HE IS GOD WITH US.

HE IS EMMANUEL.

NOT FAR AWAY.

BUT RIGHT THERE.

RIGHT THERE WITH YOU RIGHT

NOW.

FOR IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE

AND HAVE OUR BEING.

NOW, IF THIS IS YOU, IF

RIGHT NOW YOU SAY IT'S TIME

FOR ME TO GET RIGHT WITH

GOD, RIGHT NOW BOW YOUR

HEAD.

SAY A VERY SIMPLE PRAYER AND

GOD WILL DO ALL THE REST.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS -- AND JUST TALK TO

HIM BECAUSE HE IS RIGHT

THERE WITH YOU RIGHT NOW.

JESUS, I OPEN MY HEART TO

YOU AND I DON'T WANT TO KEEP

ANYTHING BACK.

I GIVE IT ALL.

I GIVE IT ALL TO YOU.

AND I ASK THAT YOU COME IN,

THAT YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN,

THAT YOU GIVE ME A NEW

HEART, A NEW BEGINNING.

AND, JESUS, I ASK THAT YOU

FILL ME WITH YOUR SPIRIT AND

CHANGE ME.

AND IF YOU'LL DO THIS, I

WANT TO FOLLOW YOU ALL THE

DAYS OF MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

LET THEM KNOW JUST HOW MUCH

THEIR PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD

AND HAS BEEN ANSWERED, AND

HOW THEY'RE ACCEPTED NOW IN

YOUR FAMILY.

LET THEM FEEL YOUR PRESENCE,

LORD.

OPEN THEIR EARS SO THEY CAN

HEAR YOUR VOICE.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THE

BIBLE SAYS THAT ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO NOW IS JUST CONFESS

WITH YOUR MOUTH.

LET SOMEBODY KNOW THAT

THAT'S WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

THE BIBLE IS REAL CLEAR.

IF YOU'VE CONFESSED ME

BEFORE MEN, I'LL CONFESS YOU

BEFORE MY FATHER.

SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS

MAKE A TOLL-FREE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH THAT

GUY ON TV.

I ASKED JESUS INTO MY

HEART.

AND I WANT TO LET SOMEBODY

KNOW I DID THAT.

WHEN YOU CALL, WE'VE GOT A

PACKET FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN HERE IS A WONDERFUL C.D.

TEACHING.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

THERE IS ALSO A BOOK LET

WITH BIBLE VERSES.

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET A

COPY OF THE BIBLE.

START READING IT EVERY DAY.

START WITH THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN.

IT IS THROUGH THE READING OF

THE WORD YOU RENEW YOUR

MIND.

WE ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

JOIN A LOCAL CHURCH, GO

THROUGH WATER BAPTISM, AND

ALL OF THAT IS PART OF WHAT

IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

BUT START WITH THAT PHONE

CALL.

MAKE IT RIGHT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT, A

MOM GIVES BIRTH TO MIRACLE

TWINS BUT THEN SHE NEEDS A

MIRACLE HERSELF.

THIS IS A HEALTHY,

VIBRANT YOUNG LADY, WHO WAS

JUST DYING IN THE OTHER

ROOM.

THERE WERE FOUR GOOD DOCTORS

IN THAT ROOM, AND EACH ONE

OF US THOUGHT THE SAME THING

WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

PATIENT SURPRISED THE

EXPERTS WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: WELL, THE MOM IN

OUR NEXT STORY HAD A

DIFFICULT PREGNANCY, BUT SHE

DIDN'TMIND.

THE TWIN BOYSSHE WAS

CARRYING WERE AN AWESOME

ANSWER TO PRAYER.

SO WHEN THEY WERE BORN, SHE

EXPECTED TO HAVE THE WORST

OF IT BEHIND HER.

INSTEAD, SHE GOT THE FIGHT

OF HER LIFE.

Reporter: WES AND KIM

FUNK HAD ALWAYS HOPED FOR

CHILDREN.

BUT DOCTORS TOLD THEM IT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE.

BUT AFTER YEARS OF PRAYER,

KIMBERLY BECAME PREGNANT

WITH WHAT DOCTORS CALLED

MIRACLE TWINS.

IT WAS VERY EXCITING.

I WAS PROBABLY THE MOST

GLEEFUL DAD.

HERE WE ARE BEING BLESSED

WITH CHILDREN, THE

OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE TWINS.

IT WAS KIND OF A TEST

TIME BECAUSE I WAS SICK A

LOT.

BUT IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING

TO BE PREGNANT, YOU DIDN'T

WANT TO FOCUS ON ALL OF THE

NEGATIVE.

SO EVERY WEEK WAS JUST A

BLESSING.

Reporter: ON JULY 17,

1994, KIM GAVE BIRTH TO TWO

TWIN BOYS, KYLE AND CORY.

ALTHOUGH THEY WERE SIX WEEKS

PREMATURE, THE BOYS WERE

HEALTHY.

I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO

RECOLLECTION OF MY BABIES

BEING BORN.

THERE WERE SIGNS THERE THAT

I WAS GOING DOWNHILL, BUT NO

ONE HAD DIAGNOSED WHAT WAS

GOING ON YET.

Reporter: DAYS LATER,

KIM SUDDENLY HAD SEVERE

ABDOMINAL PAIN.

THE NEXT DAY KIM WAS KIND

OF DELIRIOUS, AND IT ALARMED

ME.

AND I WOULD QUESTION THE

NURSES ANDDOCTORS.

Reporter: KIM WAS

WISKED OFF FOR TESTING.

CAT SCANS CONFIRMED THE

PRESENCE OF GALLSTONES AND

INFLAMMATION IN HER

GALLBLADDER.

KIM WAS TAKEN INTO THE O.R.

TO HAVE HER GALLBLADDER

REMOVED.

COMMON PROCEDURE THAT

USUALLY TAKES LESS THAN A

HALF HOUR.

THREE, THREE AND A HALF

HOURS WENT BY AND THE

DOCTORS FINALLY WALKED IN

THE DOOR.

AND THEIR HEADS WERE BOWED.

THEY WERE BASICALLY TELLING

ME SHE HAD LESS THAN 5%

CHANCE OF LIVING.

Reporter: KIM HAD ACUTE

PANCREATITIS AND A BLOOD

CLOT IN HER LUNGS.

SHE WAS IN A COMA AND PUT ON

A RESPIRATOR.

I KNOW, AND I COULD SEE

IT IN THEIR FACES, THEY FELT

THERE WERE SO MANY

COMPLICATIONS THEY DIDN'T

KNOW THE ANSWERS.

AND MY EMOTIONS WERE JUST

ALL OVER THE PLACE.

AND CLUTCHING KIM'S BIBLE, I

WOULD GO TO THE CHAPEL AND

PRAY.

GOD, YOU CAN'T LET HER PASS

AWAY AND LEAVE ME BEHIND

WITH THESE TWO BOYS.

SHE COMPLETES THE FAMILY.

WE HAD THESE CHILDREN

BECAUSE OF OUR LOVE FOR ONE

ANOTHER.

YOU GAVE US THIS MIRACLE OF

CHILDREN.

I NOW NEED ANOTHER MIRACLE.

I NEED A MIRACLE FOR KIM TO

STAY HERE.

PLEASE ANSWER MY PRAYERS.

AND NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE

DOCTORS WOULD TELL ME, I

STILL FELT I HAD TO BELIEVE

SOMETHING ELSE.

AND PRAYER WAS WHAT GOT ME

THROUGH THIS.

Reporter: OTHER FRIENDS

AND FAMILY MEMBERS STARTED

PRAYER CHAINS THAT

SNOWBALLED INTO COUNTLESS

GROUPS PRAYING FOR KIM

AROUND THE GLOBE.

EVEN KIM'S DOCTOR FRAYED

DOCTOR PRAYED FOR HIS

PATIENT.

I WILL NEVER FORGET

MEETING KIM'S HUSBAND.

AND I WALKED INTO THE ROOM,

AND HE SAID, YOU HAVE TO

SAVE MY WIFE.

AND I FELT POWERLESS.

SO I WENT HOME THAT NIGHT,

AND MY WIFE COULD SENSE THAT

I WAS A LITTLE BIT

CONCERNED.

AND SO WE TALKED ABOUT IT.

I TOLD HER THE WHOLE

SCENARIO, AND SUZANNE SAID

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE

HAVE TO SPECIFICALLY PRAY

FOR KIMBERLY.

WE HAVE TO SPECIFICALLY PRAY

FOR HER AND ASK FOR A

SPECIFIC INTERVENTION ON THE

PART OF THE LORD.

AND SO WE DID.

Reporter: BUT AS

DR. MULLENS RETURNED THE

NEXT DAY, KIM'S CONDITION

WAS WORSE.

DR. MULLENS DECIDED A FINAL,

HIGH-RISK SURGERY WAS ONE OF

THE BEST OPTIONS.

THE TIME WAS 10:45 WHEN

WE MOVED HER INTO THE

OPERATING ROOM.

Reporter: AT THE MOMENT

HE USED THE SCA SCAP

SCAPPEL, A RUSH OF BLOOD

CAME OUT.

THERE WERE FOUR DOCTORS

IN THAT ROOM, AND EACH ONE

OF US THOUGHT THE SAME THING

WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: BUT SUDDENLY

KIM'S BODY DID THE OPPOSITE

OF WHAT EVERYBODY EXPECTED.

SHE HAD SHOWN A COMPLETE

REVERSAL OF WHAT WE THOUGHT

WE WERE GOING TO SEE.

BY THE TIME MONDAY ROLLED

AROUND, SHE WAS OFF THE

KIDNEY MACHINE.

SHE HAD NO MY ARRHYTHMIA

PROBLEMS.

AND SHE CAME OUT OF THE COMA

WITH NO PROBLEMS

WHATSOEVER.

IT HAPPENED EXACTLY AS WE

ASKED THE LORD TO DO IT.

THAT HAD A PROFOUND EFFECT

ON ME.

Reporter: SEVERAL DAYS

LATER, KIM WAS ABLE TO SEE

HER BOYS FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

ON AUGUST 10th, WES AND

KIM, KYLE AND CORY WERE ALL

AT HOME.

IT WAS OVERWHELMING.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE

IT, AS I HEARD MORE AND MORE

PEOPLE THAT HAD PRAYED FOR

ME.

I WOULD NOT BE HERE IF

PEOPLE DIDN'T PRAY FOR ME.

I MEAN, IT IS SO CLEAR THAT

USED THIS AS A MOMENT TO

SAY, LOOK AT WHAT I CAN DO.

HE CLEARLY WAS THE HEALER

HERE.

HE CLEARLY DID ALL OF THE

MAGNIFICENT MIRACLES.

Reporter: TODAY, 16

YEARS LATER, EVERYONE IN THE

FAMILY IS HAPPY AND HEALTHY,

AND STILL CELEBRATING THE

MIRACLE THAT GOD GAVE THEM

YEARS AGO.

THERE IS NOT A DAY OR

MORNING THAT I WAKE UP THAT

I DON'T THANK GOD FOR

ANSWERING OUR PRAYERS.

NOT JUST OUR PRAYERS, BUT

ALL OF THE OTHERS WHO PRAYED

WORLDWIDE.

KEEP YOUR FAITH.

THE ODDS WERE AGAINST HER,

BUT A MIRACLE HAPPENED IN

THAT O.R. ROOM.

HER BODY DID TOTALLY THE

OPPOSITE OF WHAT MEDICAL

TEXTBOOKS SAY.

THAT'S THE POWER OF PRAYER.

Terry: THE MIRACLE

HAPPENED IN THAT O.R. ROOM,

AND A MIRACLE CAN HAPPEN FOR

YOU TODAY BECAUSE WE LOVE

AND SERVE A MIRACLE-WORKING

GOD.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND WE WANT TO BUILD YOUR

FAITH BY SHARING WITH YOU

SOME ANSWERS TO PRAYER THAT

OTHERS HAVE EXPERIENCED, IN

ADDITION TO THE STORY YOU

JUST HEARD ABOUT KIMBERLY.

Gordon: SHE FELL AND

DAMAGED THREE DISCS IN HER

LOW BACK.

AND SHE SAID THE PAIN FELT

LIKE SHE WAS BEING STRUCK

WITH A KNIFE.

HER DOCTOR RECOMMENDED

SURGERY, BUT SHE DECIDED

AGAINST IT.

LAST APRIL SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" AND TERRY,

YOU HAD THIS WORD OF

ACKNOWLEDGE.

"YOU HAVE A TREMENDOUS

PROBLEM WITH YOUR LOWER

SPINE.

IT IS WHERE IT SITS ON THE

GIRDLE OF YOUR HIPS.

IT IS SCHRUSH

EXCRUCIATING."

AND GOD HEARD THAT PRAYER

AND TODAY HE IS PAIN-FREE.

Terry: HERE IS CATHY.

IN 1995, SHE COULDN'T SLEEP

AND BECAME SEVERELY

DEPRESSED.

SHE EVEN TRIED TO COMMIT

SUICIDE.

HER DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER AS

BYPOLAR, AND PUT HER ON

MEDICATIONS HE SAID SHE

WOULD HAVE TO TAKE FOR THE

REST OF HER LIFE.

LAST JANUARY SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM AND

PRAYING, LORD, PLEASE LET

GORDON SAYMENTA SAY MENTAL

ILLNESS, AND BIPOLAR.

AND GORDON, YOU SAID, JESUS

IS HEALING YOU TODAY.

WHEN SHE KEPT HER NEXT

DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT, HE

CONFIRMED SHE DID NOT NEED

HER MEDS ANYMORE.

SHE HAD BEEN HEALED.

Gordon: THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

JUST IMAGINE HOW BIG GOD

IS.

START THINKING ABOUT HOW BIG

IS POSSIBLE?

WHEN GOD SAYS, ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE FOR THEM WHO

BELIEVE, YOU CAN LITERALLY

TAKE A MEDICAL SITUATION

THAT ALL OF THE TEXTBOOKS

SAY IS ONLY GOING TO TURN

OUT THIS WAY, AND GOD SAYS,

"WELL, WITH ME, THAT'S

POSSIBLE.

WITH ME, I CAN TURN THAT

AROUND.

WITH ME I CAN TAKE THE

INCURABLE AND CURE IT."

I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE, YOU

CAN NEVER BE TOO DEAD FOR A

RESURRECTION.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THE

DOCTORS SAY.

LET'S START BELIEVING GOD.

AND HOW BIG HE IS.

AND HOW BIG THAT "POSSIBLE"

IS FOR YOU TODAY.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND FOR THOSE CRYING OUT,

FOR THOSE WONDERING, HOPING

CAN THIS BE FOR ME, CAN

JESUS BE FOR ME, TOGETHER WE

JUST COME IN AGREEMENT WITH

THEM AND SAY, YES, HE CAME

FOR YOU.

AND BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE

HEALED AND MADE WHOLE NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE WITH A

NERVE CONDITION, AND IT'S

THROUGHOUT YOUR BODY.

IT CAUSES FALSE SIGNALS OF

PAIN.

AND YOU'VE -- IT HAS JUST

DESTROYED YOUR LIFE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT RIGHT

NOW.

YOU'RE JUST FEELING A

WARMTH, ALMOST LIKE A

BLANKET COMING OVER YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND YOUR NERVES ARE BEING

RESTORED.

ALL OF THE CONNECTIONS ARE

BEING HEALED.

AND IN JESUS' NAME, YOU'RE

HEALED AND MADE WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS AN

INOPERABLE TUMOR IN YOUR

BRAIN.

IT'S ALONG THE MIDDLE OF

YOUR SKULL, AT THE TOP, AND

IT GOES OVER BOTH LOBES.

GOD IS HEALING THAT.

HE IS TAKING THAT AWAY NOW.

YOU JUST FELT A PRESSURE

RELEASE IN YOUR BRAIN, AND

THAT HEADACHE IS LEAVING YOU

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

BE HEALED.

BE MADE WHOLE NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED

WITH STOMACH CANCER.

YOU HAVE A SHARP PAIN FROM

TIME TO TIME, BUT IT IS THIS

GNAWING, DRAWING FEELING

THAT YOU JUST CAN'T EVER GET

RID OF.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE JUST GOING TO FEEL

LIKE A WARMTH IN YOUR

STOMACH, AND IT IS GOING TO

BE A GOOD WARMTH, SO

WONDERFUL AS HE HEALS YOU.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

REALLY SEVERE FIBROMYALGIA,

AND YOU HAVE IN THE JAW OF

YOUR FACE THIS PAIN IN YOUR

JAW THAT HAS BEEN SO HARD.

YOU JUST ROCK AND IT ACHES.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU AND

RELEASING THAT AND HEALING

IT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: AND THERE IS A

PROBLEM IN THE MANDIBLE ON

YOUR RIGHT JAW, GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

IT'S OUR HONOR TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

SO CALL US.

1-800-759-0700.

HERE ARE THESE WORDS FROM

MATTHEW: "WHATEVER THINGS

YOU ASK IN PRAYER, YOU WILL

RECEIVE."
