Terry: HI, EVERYBODY,

WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM.

THANKS FOR SPENDING YOUR

MORNING WITH US.

AND TO TELL YOU WHAT IS

COMING UP THIS MORNING, I'D

LIKE TO WELCOME BACK CBN

REPORTER SCOTT ROSS.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE.

Scott: YOU KNOW WHAT?

Terry: WHAT?

Scott: YOU'RE GETTING

TO BE A HABIT WITH ME.

Terry: YOU START

DANCING, AND I'M OUT OF

HERE.

Scott: I'LL LEAVE THE

DANCING TO YOU.

LET ME ASK YOU QUICKLY, HAVE

YOU EVER HAD AN ENCOUNTER

WITH AN ANGEL?

I HAVE NOT, PERSONAL THE,

BUT I KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE.

Scott: I HAVE, AND

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

THAT.

ON MARCH 26, 2009, IN TEXAS,

TWO CARS CRASHED INTO EACH

OTHER HEAD-ON.

EYE WITNESSES AT THE SCENE

SAW A FIERY CRASH, AND A

DIVINE RESCUE AT THE HANDS

OF ANGELS.

9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR

EMERGENCY?

WE HAVE A VEHICLE THAT IS

UPSIDE DOWN AND ON FIRE.

WE NEED HELP NOW!

Reporter: FOR LIVES

INTERSECTED ON HIGHWAY 6 IN

CRAWFORD, TEXAS, THAT DAY.

SHERRY AND CODY, LISA AND

ANTHONY ALL MET IN THE MIDST

OF TRAGEDY.

THEY ALL SAY THEY HAD A

SUPER NATURAL ENCOUNTER ON

THAT NIGHT.

LISA SLAMMED INTO THE

ONCOMING CAR.

IT CRUSHED ANTHONY'S CAR.

BOTH DRIVERS WERE TRAPPED.

MY FEET WERE ON FIRE.

THE CAR WAS FILLING UP WITH

SMOKE.

THERE WAS FIRE COMING IN

THROUGH MY LEFT DOOR.

IT HAD BURNED MY ARM.

I DIDN'T NO PAIN OR ANYTHING

LIKE THAT, BUT THE STEERING

WHEEL WERE YOU STUCK IN MY

CHEST.

Reporter: ANTHONY

BLACKED OUT A SECOND TIME,

AND LISA BEGAN TO PRAY.

I JUST REMEMBER SAYING,

GOD, HELP ME.

Reporter: SH SHERRY

AND CODY SAW THE WRECKED

VEHICLES AND RACED TO HELP.

SHE CALLED 9-1-1 AND CALLED

OUT TO GOD TO GOD FOR A

MIRACLE.

I COULD FEEL THE GIFT OF

FAITH STIRRING INSIDE MY

CHEST THAT NOBODY IS GOING

TO DIE HERE TODAY.

GOD IS GOING TO SHOW UP.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

RAN OVER TO LISA'S BURNING

S.U.V.

CODY CLIMBED INSIDE TO TRY

TO PULL LISA FROM THE

GROWING FLAMES.

GOD GAVE ME THE COURAGE

TO GO IN THERE.

BECAUSE I TOLD HIM I WAS

SCARED, I DIDN'T WANT TO

DIE, BURN UP.

THE SEAT BELT -- I KEPT

TRYING TO RELEASE IT, BUT IT

WOULDN'T RELEASE.

I HANDED HER THE KNIFE,

AND SHE CUT THE SEAT BELT.

SHE FELL TO THE ROOF.

THE ROOF HAD BEEN CRUSHED,

AND THERE WAS NOT MUCH

ROOM.

MAYBE LESS THAN EIGHT INCHES

FOR HER TO GET THROUGH.

Reporter: IN A SPLIT

SECOND, THE IMPOSSIBLE

SITUATION TURNED INTO A

DIVINE RESCUE.

WHEN I REACHED OUT AND WE

GRABBED EACH OTHER'S HANDS,

THERE WAS ANOTHER SET OF

HANDS THAT GRABBED OUR

HANDS.

AS I SAW CODY'S HANDS, I

SAW A SET OF WHITE HANDS

AROUND HIS.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT WAS JUST A BURST

OF WHITE LIGHT.

Reporter: SHERRY, WHO

HAD BEEN STANDING NEXT TO

THE S.U.V., WITNESSED THE

WHOLE THING.

I SAW THESE HANDS REACH

PASSED ME, WHERE THERE WAS

NO ROOM.

I GRABBED AHOLD OF CODY'S

HANDS AND LISA'S HANDS, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN IT WAS

BOOP.

AND LISA AND CODY WERE ON

THE GROUND NEXT TO ME.

Reporter: A FEW FEET

AWAY, ANTHONY LAY

UNCONSCIOUS, WITH NO WAY OF

ESCAPING THE CAR.

THERE WAS THIS HUGE

EXPLOSION, AND ANTHONY AND

THE CAR WERE CONSUMED IN

BLACK FLAMES.

I SCREAMED, I SAID, GOD,

SEND YOUR ANGELS NOW.

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, ANOTHER EYE WITNESS

SAW ANOTHER WITNESS UNFOLD.

I WAS CRYING OUT LOUD,

GOD, YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

HE SEEMED TO EMERGE THROUGH

THE DOOR AND HE KIND OF

FLOATED OUT ON THE GROUND.

SO I BELIEVE THAT GOD SENT

SUPER NATURAL ANGELS HERE TO

HELP HIM GET OUT OF THAT

VEHICLE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

ANTHONY LOST CONSCIOUSNESS°

THNESS DURING THE ACCIDENT,

HE SAID THERE IS NO DOUBT

WHO RESCUED HIM DURING THE

CRASH.

IT WAS DEFINITELY GOD.

IT WAS A MIRACLE.

I CAN ONLY SAY THE LORD

SENT AN ANGEL AND REMOVED

LISA FROM THE CAR, BECAUSE

SHE WAS NOT GOING TO COME

OUT OF THAT CAR.

AND HE ALSO SENT AN ANGEL

AND PULLED ANTHONY OUT OF

HIS CAR, BECAUSE HE WAS NOT

COMING OUT OF THAT CAR,

EITHER.

Reporter: LISA AND

ANTHONY WERE TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL WITH SERIOUS

INJURIES, INCLUDING BROKEN

BONES AND SEVERE BURNS.

I WENT THROUGH EIGHT

MONTHS OF REHAB.

AND I'M ABLE TO WALK.

RECOVERY HAS BEEN GREAT.

MY BURNS HAVE HEALED WITH NO

PROBLEMS.

NO SKIN GRAFTS.

THAT WAS ANOTHER MIRACLE

THAT HAPPENED.

IT TOOK ME, I THINK, OVER

A YEAR, AND I WAS GOING

BETWEEN A WALKER TO

CRUTCHES, AND THEN FROM

CRUTCHES TO A CANE.

I FEEL GOOD TO BE WALKING

WITH A CANE, BUT I STILL

WANT TO WALK WITHOUT ONE.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, THE MIRACLE ON

HIGHWAY 6 REMAINS ETCHED IN

THEIR MINDS.

A DAY THAT DESPERATE PRAYERS

WERE ANSWERED, PRECIOUS

LIVES WERE SAVED, AND GOD

ORCHESTRATED AN HEROIC

RESCUE.

GOD ANSWERS OUR FERVENT,

HEART-FELT CRY, OUR FERVENT,

HEART-FELT PRAYERS.

AND HE DELIVERS US.

Scott: YOU KNOW, PEOPLE

DENY SO MANY ASPECTS OF THE

SUPER NATURAL.

AND JOINING US IS AUTHOR

JUDITH McNUT.

FOR PURPOSES OF FULL

DISCLOSURE, I KNOW YOU

PERSONALLY.

YES, YOU DO.

Scott: I READ THIS BOOK

COVER TO COVER, AND WE JUST

SAW THAT STORY.

IS THAT ACCURATE?

OH, IT'S VERY ACCURATE.

I HAVE STORIES LIKE THAT

FROM FRIENDS AND ALSO THAT

HAVE BEEN SENT TO ME, ANGELS

INTERVENING ALL OF THE TIME,

EVERYWHERE.

Scott: DID YOU -- HAVE

YOU EVER HAD YOUR OWN

PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH AN

ANGEL?

OH, MANY.

MANY.

THROUGHOUT MY LIFE.

THAT'S WHY I WROTE THE

BOOK.

Scott: THE FIRST TIME

IT HAPPENED TO YOU?

I FELT LIKE AS A CHILD I

WAS RESCUED SEVERAL TIMES BY

ANGELS, BUT I NEVER SAW

THEM.

I SENSED THEIR PRESENCE.

BUT THE FIRST CHAPTER IN THE

BOOK IS ABOUT AN ANGEL THAT

RETURNS A RING TO ME, THAT

WAS VERY PRECIOUS, THAT MY

FATHER GAVE ME.

AND THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I

REALLY KNEW THAT THEY WERE

AROUND ALL THE TIME.

AND IN JERUSALEM, MY LIFE

WAS ACTUALLY SAVED ONCE BY

AN ANGEL.

Scott: ANGELS DON'T

TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM GOD,

JESUS, OR ANYTHING.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO

WORSHIP ANGELS AS SUCH, ARE

WE?

I'M SO GLAD YOU SAY

THAT.

SOME PEOPLE SAY, WHY WRITE A

BOOK ON ANGELS?

WHY NOT WRITE ABOUT JESUS?

BUT THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD

CREATED ANGELS TO BE WITH US

AND HELP US.

IT DOESN'T DETRACT FROM GOD

OR JESUS AT ALL.

Scott: THE ANGELS

APPEAR IN DIFFERENT FORMS.

SOME OF THE CARTOON

FIGURINES -- CHARUBS.

LITTLE FAT ANGELS WE PUT

ON CHRISTMAS TREES.

Scott: BUT THAT'S NOT

AN ANGEL?

NO.

I HAVE DESCRIPTIONS OF

ANGELS IN THE BOOKS.

Scott: AND THEY DON'T

ALWAYS COME WITH WINGS.

RIGHT.

I HAVE THREE WAYS THEY

APPEAR: ONE IS INVISIBLE.

IT IS NOT REALLY APPEARING,

BUT YOU SENSE THEIR

PRESENCE.

AND THE SECOND WAY IS IN

WHAT I CALL THE TRADITIONAL

BODY, WINGS, BRIGHT,

GLOWING, KIND OF ANGELIC.

AND THE THIRD WAY IS IN

HUMAN FORM.

THEY JUST SHOW UP IN HUMAN

FORM.

THEY LOOK LIKE HUMANS AND

THEY ACT LIKE HUMANS, ONLY

THEY'RE A LOT QUIETER.

AND THEY DO WHAT THEY'RE

ASSIGNED TO DO AND THEN THEY

LEAVE.

Scott: I NOTICED IN

SCRIPTURE, VARIOUS TIMES

ANGELS SHOWED UP AND

PEOPLE -- TO USE THE TERM,

FREAK OUT.

BUT THEY ALSO ACCOMPANY

THEIR APPEARANCE WITH

PEACE.

IT'S OKAY.

IT'S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT.

IS THAT TO BE ONE OF THE

FRUITS OF WHAT YOU RESPOND

TO FROM AN ANGEL, THAT THEY

IF THEY DO SHOW UP?

OH, YEAH.

THEY BRING GOD'S PRESENCE.

THEY BRING THE KINGDOM OF

GOD INTO THE PLACE.

SO YOU SHOULD FEEL WONDERFUL

PEACE.

BUT THEY'RE SO WORLDLY, LIKE

JOHN ON THE ISLAND OF PATOS,

HE FELT LIKE HE WAS DEAD AT

THE FEET OF JESUS.

HE FELL DOWN AND TRIED TO

WORSHIP AN ANGEL IN ONE OF

THE CHAPTERS.

AND THE ANGEL SAID, DON'T DO

THAT.

ONLY WORSHIP GOD.

Scott: AND THERE ARE

ALSO DARK ANGELS THAT COME

FROM THE NETHERLAND OR

WHEREVER THEY COME FROM.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE ANGELS?

WELL, THOSE ARE THE

DANGEROUS ONES.

THEY'RE LED BY LUCIFER OR

SATAN.

THE BIBLE SEEMS TO INDICATE

A THIRD OF THE ANGELS FELL

WITH LUCIFER WHEN HE WAS

CAST OUT OF HEAVEN.

THEOLOGICALLY, THOSE ARE THE

DEMONS THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL

WITH IN THE CHURCH.

Scott: HOW DO PEOPLE

DISTINGUISH BETWEEN IF

THEY'RE FROM GOD OR IF

THEY'RE FROM LUCIFER?

WHAT DO THEY DO?

IN MY PERSONAL OPINION,

WHEN A HOLY ANGEL COMES, YOU

CAN SENSE GOD'S PRESENCE AND

GOD'S PEACE AND THERE IS

THIS LIGHT AND WONDERFUL

PRESENCE.

WHEN THE DEMON SHOWS UP,

THEY CARRY THE ONE THEY

FOLLOW, THE DARKNESS.

AND IT IS FEAR OF ALL OF

THOSE OTHER THINGS.

Scott: SO WHEN THE LADY

IN THE STORY SAID, SEND YOUR

ANGELS, IS THAT LEGITIMATE

TO ASK FOR THAT?

JESUS HIMSELF SAID PRAY

TO THE FATHER AND ASK HIM TO

SEND ANGELS.

SO I GET A LITTLE WORRIED

WHEN PEOPLE TELL ANGELS WHAT

TO DO BECAUSE THEY DON'T

LISTEN ANYWAY.

THEY DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO

US -- THEY'LL HEAR OUR

PRAYERS, OF COURSE, BUT THE

FATHER IS THE ONE WHO SENDS

THE ANGELS TO HELP US.

Scott: OKAY.

AND YOU WROTE THIS BOOK SO

WE COULD UNDERSTAND

THIS, "INSPIRING TRUE

STORIES AND BIBLICAL

ANSWERS, ANGELS ARE FOR

REAL."

THEY ARE FOR REAL.

Scott: WE HAVE DENIED

THE SUPER NATURAL IN SO MANY

SIDES OF THINGS, AND IN THE

CHURCH AS WELL, HAVEN'T WE?

WE HAVE.

MY HUSBAND AND I, FRANCIS,

YOUR FRIEND, WE HAVE A

HEALING MINISTRY.

AND WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER WITH

THE HEALING MINISTRY, WE'VE

FIGURED OUT, OVER 100 YEARS,

TRYING TO BRING THAT MESSAGE

BACK TO THE CHURCH THAT GOD

STILL HEALS TODAY.

SO ANGELS ARE A PART OF THE

KINGDOM OF GOD.

SO WE HAVE TO BRING BACK ALL

OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Scott: RIGHT.

"ANGELS ARE FOR REAL," AND

YOU AND FRANCIS DON'T LOOK

AT ALL OVER 100.

I'M GLAD TO HEAR THAT.

Scott: THANK YOU,

JUDITH.

APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU.

Scott: TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, ONE

MAN IN CHRONIC PAIN FINALLY

FINDS RELIEF.

FIND OUT HOW AFTER THIS.

Terry: BEING A

BRICK-LAYER IS A TOUGH

ENOUGH JOB AS IT IS.

FOR THE MAN IN OUR NEXT

STORY, THAT JOB BECAME EVEN

TOUGHER WHEN HE HAD TO WORK

THROUGH EXCRUCIATING PAIN.

Reporter: EVERY MORNING

AT 4:30 a.m., THEODORE

TAKES A TWO HOUR RIDE TO HIS

JOB.

FOR MORE THAN A YEAR

PROBLEMS WITH HIS HANDS HAVE

MADE IT VERY PAINFUL FOR

THEODORE TO HANDLE THE LIME

AND OTHER CONGRESSMAN'S IN

THE CONCRETE.

> CHEMICALS IN THE

CONCRETE.

EVERY DAY WHEN MY HANDS

GET IN THE CEMENT, MY HANDS

RADIATE WITH HEAT.

Reporter: THEODORE

FORCES HIMSELF TO WORK

THROUGH THE CHRONIC PAIN

BECAUSE HE LOVES HIS WIFE

AND THREE YOUNG

STEPDAUGHTERS.

THIS IS CARMEN, ONE OF THE

TWINS.

WE LOVE HIM LIKE HE IS

OUR REAL DAD.

Reporter: THEODORE HAS

NO MONEY TO SEE A DOCTOR,

AND FOOD IS ACTUALLY A

HIGHER PRIORITY RIGHT NOW.

SO HE GATHERS THE GIRLS

TOGETHER AND ASKS THEM TO

PRAY.

SOON AFTER THAT PRAYER,

"OPERATION BLESSING" SET UP

A MOBILE MEDICAL CLINIC TO

CARE FOR WORKERS AT THE

CEMETERY.

THERE A DOCTOR DIAGNOSED THE

CONDITION AND GAVE THEODORE

SOME CREAM TO TREAT THE

CRACKS IN HIS SKIN.

BUT AFTER A MONTH, THE

CONDITION WAS NO BETTER.

SO WE PROVIDED HIM WITH AN

ANTI-FUNGAL CREAM.

WHEN THAT DIDN'T WORK, WE

TOOK HIM TO SEE A

DERMATOLOGIST.

ONCE THE SKIN WAS OPEN,

IT BECAME INFECTED WITH A

FUNGUS THAT WENT INTO HIS

BLOODSTREAM.

Reporter: SO "OPERATION

BLESSING" PAID FOR A VERY

EXPENSIVE ANTI-FUNGAL DRUG

WHICH THEODORE COULD NOT

AFFORD, AND WITHIN A FEW

WEEKS, HIS HANDS WERE AS

GOOD AS NEW.

THANKS TO CBN AND

"OPERATION BLESSING" FOR

TREATING MY HANDS.

NOW I AM ABLE TO WORK

WITHOUT PAIN.

I AM HAPPY BECAUSE MY NEW

DADDY'S HANDS ARE ALL

BETTER.

THEY WERE VERY ROUGH BEFORE,

BUT NOW THEY ARE SOFTER AND

WARM.

Terry: A BRICK-LAYER

WHO'S HANDS ARE SOFT AND

SMOOTH, THAT'S A MIRACLE IN

ITSELF, ISN'T IT.

I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS WE

DON'T REALIZE HERE IN THE

UNITED STATES IS HOW

DIFFICULT IT IS FOR PEOPLE

IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD

TO GET HELP WHEN THEY HAVE A

MEDICAL NEED.

THERE IS NO DISABILITY OR

INSURANCE FOR THEM TO FALL

BACK ON.

BEYOND THAT, THEY DON'T HAVE

THE MONEY TO GO TO A

DOCTOR.

IT IS CASH OUTLAY FROM THE

GET-GO.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE JUST

INKING OUT A LIVING AND JUST

GETTING BY.

NO EXTRA MONEY FOR

UNEXPECTED MEDICAL NEEDS.

AND YET, WHEN WE ALL JOIN

TOGETHER AND BECOME "700

CLUB" MEMBERS, WE CAN REACH

RIGHT INTO THE POINT OF

NEEDS, IN LITTLE FAMILIES

LIKE THEODORE'S, AND MAKE A

HUGE DIFFERENCE.

THIS IS A MAN WHO WANTS TO

WORK HARD AND SUPPORT HIS

FAMILY.

HE JUST NEEDED SOMEONE TO

HELP HIM WITH THIS MEDICAL

NEED.

WE THANK YOU IF YOU'RE A

MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB."

THIS IS JUST ONE OF THE

SITUATIONS YOU'RE A PART OF,

ONE OF THE SOLUTIONS, ONE OF

THE AREAS OF HOPE THAT

YOU'RE BRINGING INTO SOMEONE

WHO DIDN'T HAVE ANY.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE A PART

OF THAT, AND YOU HAVEN'T

JOINED "THE 700 CLUB," IT'S

A VERY SIMPLE PROCESS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

YOUR PHONE.

CALL THE TOLL-FREE NUMBER

THAT IS ON YOUR SCREEN RIGHT

NOW.

IT I NOW.

1-888-777-1999.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, AND YOU'LL BE JOINING

WITH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO HELP.

IF YOU WANT TO JOIN ONLINE,

GO TO cbn.com AND CLICK ON

"HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER."

Scott: LET ME JUST ADD

THIS.

I THINK RIGHT NO THERE ARE

SOME FOLKS WITH PAIN IN

THEIR HANDS, AND YOU CAN

FEEL HEAT GOING INTO YOUR

HANDS AND THE LORD HEALING

YOU.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

SUPER NATURAL HEALING

TODAY.

IF YOU'RE SENSING THAT, GIVE

US A CALL, AS TERRY SAID,

AND WE'LL PRAY FOR YOU ON

THE TELEPHONE.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE TO

DO, AND GOD DOES MIRACLES.

UP NEXT, HE WAS CRUSHED

UNDERNEATH A TRACTOR-TRAILER

AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT.

THEY CAN'T FIND ANYONE

ELSE IN THE WORLD WHO HAS

EVER LIVED WITH FIVE MAJOR

ARTERIES BEING SEVERED.

THE ANGELS WERE THERE TO

HOLD ME TOGETHER.

Scott: HOW THIS MAN'S

LIFE WAS SAVED BY NOT ONE,

BUT TWO, ANGELS WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: BRUCE HAS THE

UNIQUE DISTINCTION OF BEING

THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD

WHO HAS EVER LIVED WITH FIVE

MAJOR ARTERIES BEING

SEVERED.

AND HE IS THE FIRST TO ADMIT

HE WOULDN'T BE HERE TODAY

WITHOUT THE HELP OF TWO

ANGELS.

Reporter: BRUIN'S VAN

NATTA LOVED TRUCKS, AND HIS

JOB AS A SELF-EMPLOYED

DIESEL MECHANIC HELPED HIM

PROVIDE FOR HIS WIFE AND

FOUR CHILDREN.

HE NEVER GAVE A SECOND

THOUGHT TO THE DANGERS OF

WORKING ON ENGINES THAT

WEIGHED THOUSANDS OF POUNDS

UNTIL NOVEMBER 16, 2006.

I WAS WORKING ON A

PETERBILT LOGGING TRUCK

ABOUT AN HOUR FROM OUR

HOME.

AND THE GUY I WAS WORKING

WITH THAT DAY, THE DRIVER OF

THE TRUCK, ASKED ME IF I

WOULD LOOK AND TRY TO

DIAGNOSE ONE MORE PROBLEM,

ONE MORE LEAK BEFORE I

LEFT.

IF YOU CAN PICTURE ONE OF

THESE GREAT BIG PETERBILT

TRUCKS, HERE IS THE FRONT

BUMPER, AND I SLIPPED

UNDERNEATH THAT CHROME

BUMPER FEET FIRST.

HE HAD THE FRONT AXLE JACKED

UP IN THE AIR.

THE AXLE IS GOING ACROSS NI

CHEST A MY CHEST AT THIS

POINT.

Reporter: JUST AS HE

SLIPPED UNDER THE TRUCK, THE

20-TON AXLE SLIPPED OUT OF

POSITION.

THE WEIGHT ON THIS AXLE

CAME DOWN ACROSS MY

MID-SECTION, BASICALLY LIKE

A BLUNT GUILLOTINE AND

CRUSHED ME IN HALF.

I COULD SEE THERE WAS LESS

THAN AN INCH OF AIR SPACE

BETWEEN THE BOTTOM OF THE

AXLE AND THE CEMENT.

SO I KNEW THAT I WAS

THINNER -- MY BODY WAS

THINNER THAN AN INCH.

THE MAN JACKED THE TRUNK UP

OFF OF ME.

I BEGGED HIM TO GET ME OUT

FROM UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK,

AND HE DIDN'T WANT TO

BECAUSE HE COULD TELL I HAD

TO HAVE A BROKEN BACK, AND I

DID.

MY VERTEBRAE AND BACK WERE

CRACKED THE WIDTH OF THE

AXLE.

IT WAS THE MOST INCREDIBLE

PAIN YOU COULD EVER THINK

OF.

THE VERY NEXT THING I DID

WAS I CALLED OUT, LORD, HELP

ME.

I CALLED OUT TWICE, LORD,

HELP ME.

Reporter: INSTANTLY,

ALL OF THE PAIN LEFT BRUCE'S

BODY.

AT THAT POINT, I WENT

UNCONSCIOUS.

MY SPIRIT LEFT MY BODY.

I FLOATED UP INTO THE

CEILING.

AND I'M LOOKING DOWN AT THE

ACCIDENT SCENE.

THE MAN WHO WAS WORKING ON

ME, I COULD HEAR HIM

TALKING.

HE WAS SAYING THINGS LIKE,

I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY.

BUT ON EACH SIDE OF HIM WAS

ALSO A HUGE ANGEL.

SO IF YOU WOULD HAVE STOOD

THEM UP, THEY WOULD HAVE

BEEN LIKE EIGHT FEET TALL.

THEY DID NOT HAVE WINGS.

THEY WERE JUST VERY

BROAD-SHOULDERED.

AGAIN, BETWEEN THE TWO

ANGELS AND HIM, IT TOOK UP

THE WHOLE FRONT OF HIS

TRUCK.

THERE WAS A BRIGHT LIGHT

SHINING AROUND EACH ONE OF

THEM.

THEY WERE MATCHING

BOOK-ENDS.

THEY LOOKED IDENTICAL.

THEY HAD THEIR ARMS

UNDERNEATH THE TRUCK.

NOT HOLDING THE TRUCK UP,

BUT HAD THEIR ARMS ANGLED IN

TOWARDS MY BODY.

THERE WAS NO PAIN.

IN FACT, JUST PEACE.

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE THE

PEACE THAT I FELT AND THE

FEELING.

Reporter: BRUCE KNEW HE

HAD A SERIOUS CHOICE TO

MAKE.

I WAS DEFINITELY ON THE

VERGE OF LIFE AND DEATH.

THERE WERE TWO THOUGHTS IN

MY HEAD.

ONE WAS, SHUT YOUR EYES AND

GIVE UP AND DIE AND YOU'RE

GOING TO GO TO HEAVEN

ANYWAY.

AND THERE WAS ANOTHER VOICE

IN MY HEAD, A THOUGHT, MORE

OF A WHISPER, AND THAT ONE

SAID, IF YOU WANT TO LIVE,

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

FIGHT AND IT IS GOING TO BE

A HARD FIGHT.

THE NEXT THING I KNEW, MY

SPIRIT WENT BACK DOWN INTO

MY BODY, LIKE THAT.

Reporter: BRUCE WAS

CONSCIOUS AS HE WAS FLOWN TO

A HOSPITAL.

DOCTORS THERE DOUBTED HE

WOULD EVER SURVIVE THE NEXT

FEW HOURS.

HIS RIBS WERE BROKEN, HIS

PANCREAS AND SPLEEN CRUSHED,

AND SEVERAL ARTHURS WERE

SEVERED.

I HAD FIVE PLACES THAT

MAJOR ARTERIES WERE

COMPLETELY SEVERED.

I FOUND OUT FROM DOCTORS

THERE WAS A MEDICAL STUDY IN

2001, AND THEY USED MY CASE

AND COMPARED IT AGAINST THAT

STUDY, AND ACCORDING TO

THAT, THEY CAN'T FIND ANYONE

ELSE WHO HAS EVER LIVED WITH

FIVE MAJOR ARTERIES BEING

SEVERED.

I SHOULD HAVE BLED TO DEATH

IN A FEW MINUTES.

MY THOUGHT IS THE ANGELS

WERE THERE TO SOMEHOW HOLD

ME TOGETHER.

Reporter: BRUCE TADE IN

TH STAYED IN THE HOSPITAL

FOR OVER TWO MONTHS.

YET HE HAD OVERWHELMING

OBSTACLES TO OVERCOME.

ALMOST 75% OF HIS SMALL

INTESTINES WERE CRUSHED IN

THE ACCIDENT AND HAD TO BE

REMOVED.

AN ADULT HAS 18 TO 20

SOMETHING FEET OF SMALL

INTESTINES.

SOMEBODY CAME IN AND TOLD US

THEY DIDN'T EXPECT ME TO

LIVE MUCH MORE THAN A YEAR.

I'M GOING TO STARVE TO

DEATH.

I WAS LOSING WEIGHT VERY

RAPIDLY.

Reporter: BRUCE'S ONE

180-POUND FRAME DROPPED TO

126 POUNDS.

BUT BRUCE'S FAMILY WAS

PRAYING AND HIS COMMUNITY

RALLIED AROUND HIM.

THE MAN BROUGHT IN A MAN

SOMEONE I MET ONTHE LORD

BROUGHT A MAN IN, SOMEONE I

MET ONE TIME ON VACATION.

AND HE SAID, SMALL

INTESTINE, I COMMAND YOU TO

SUPER NATURALLY GROW BACK IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

WHEN HE DID, IT FELT LIKE

220 VOLTS CAME OUT OF HIS

PALM INTO MY FOREHEAD.

I COULD FEEL MY INTESTINES

MOVING AROUND.

Reporter: AFTER A LONG

NINE MONTHS OF SURGERIES AND

HOSPITAL STAYS, BRUCE WAS

EVENTUALLY ABLE TO FEED

HIMSELF.

AND HE GAINED WEIGHT, ALL

THE WAY UP TO 170 POUNDS.

WHEN HE RETURNED FOR

TESTING, RADIOLOGY REPORTS

CONFIRMED THAT HIS

INTESTINES ALMOST DOUBLED IN

FEET.

WHEN THEY TESTED ME, THEY

SAID MY INTESTINES WERE

TWICE AS MUCH AS NORMAL.

THEY ABSORB THE VITAMINS AND

NUTRIENTS THAT I EAT IN MY

BODY NORMALLY.

OVER AND OVER THEY KEPT

SAYING I SHOULDN'T HAVE

LIVED, I SHOULD HAVE BLED TO

DEATH, TO MY INTESTINES

GROWING BACK.

MY PANCREAS REJUVENATED BY

ITSELF, AND MY SPLEEN

REJUVENATED BY ITSELF.

OVER AND OVER AND OVER GOD

SHOWING UP AND SHOWING HE IS

A MIRACLE WORKER.

Reporter: TODAY,

THROUGH THEIR ORGANIZATION,

"SWEET BREAD MINISTRIES,"

BRUCE AND HIS FAMILY TRAVEL

TOGETHER TO TALK ABOUT SUPER

NATURAL HEALINGS.

MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE

AFTER MIRACLE, IT IS

EXCITING TO SEE WHAT GOD IS

DOING IN PEOPLE'S LIVES

TODAY.

AND THAT HE IS ALIVE AND

WELL.

HE WANTS TO REACH PEOPLE AT

THEIR POINT IN NEED.

WE'VE GOT A GOD WHO LOVES US

MORE THAN WE CAN EVER

IMAGINE.

AND HE POURS OUT HIS LOVE ON

US IN SUCH AN AMAZING WAY IT

IS INDESCRIBABLE.

Terry: HE WILL GIVE HIS

ANGELS CHARGE OVER YOU LEST

YOU DASH OR SLIP ON A ROCK.

GOD SEES EVERY ASPECT OF

YOUR LIFE, EVERY THING THAT

YOU DO, EVERY HURT THAT YOU

EXPERIENCE.

HE KNOWS EVERY HAIR ON YOUR

HEAD, AND HE CARES.

IT MATTERS TO HIM.

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT ON THE PROGRAM

TODAY, THE ANGELS, THE

MIRACLES, THE SUPER NATURAL,

ARE ALL THERE FOR ONE REASON

AND ONE REASON ONLY.

FOR YOU TO KNOW YOUR

FATHER.

FOR YOU TO KNOW THE ABBA

FATHER, WHO LOVES YOU, WHO

CARES FOR YOU, WHO HAS

PURPOSE AND PLANS FOR YOU.

HE SAYS KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU

WERE EVEN FORMED IN YOUR

MOTHER'S WOMB.

SURELY, THEN, HE ALSO KNOWS

THE STEPS THAT YOU TAKE IN

YOUR LIFE TODAY.

I KNOW THERE ARE MANY OF YOU

WATCHING, AND YOU SAY, I

HAVE A NEED.

I HAVE SOMETHING I'M CRYING

OUT TO GOD FOR IN MY OWN

HEART.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHERE TWO OR

MORE ARE GATHERED TOGETHER

IN HIS NAME, HE IS THERE IN

THE MIDST OF HIM.

AND WHATEVER WE ASK IN THE

NAME OF CHRIST WILL BE

DONE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PRAY

WITH SOMEONE ABOUT A

SPECIFIC NEED IN YOUR OWN

LIFE TODAY, THE NUMBER ON

YOUR SCREEN, 1-888-777-1999,

IS A PRAYER LINE.

YOU CAN CALL AND PRAY WITH A

FELLOW BELIEVER, WHO HAS

GIVEN THEIR LIFE TO CHRIST,

AND WHO WOULD LOVE TO BE

THERE WITH YOU TODAY, TO

PRAY WITH YOU, AS YOU SEEK

THE THRONE OF GOD.

CALL NOW.

WE HAVE SOME OF YOU WHO HAVE

SUBMITTED QUESTIONS.

MARGUERITE IS IN THE

CHATROOM.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

ADAM ASKS, "DO ANGELS

HAVE THOUGHTS AND DREAMS OF

THEIR OWN, OR DO THEY MERELY

DO GOD'S GUIDING?"

Scott: FROM WHAT I

UNDERSTAND, I THINK THEY'RE

GIVEN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

AUTONOMY.

THEY DO MAKE DECISIONS ON

THE SPOT FOR A GIVEN

SITUATION.

THAT'S WHAT I UNDERSTAND.

Terry: A LOT OF WARFARE

THAT GOES ON --

Scott: THERE REALLY

IS.

WHEN YOU READ THROUGH THE

SCRIPTURES HOW MANY TIMES

ANGELS SHOW UP -- WE JUST

DISCOUNT SO MUCH OF THIS.

THIS MAN'S STORY IS

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

Terry: WHY DIDN'T HE

BLEED OUT?

Scott: WHY ISN'T THAT

ON THE FRONT OF THE "NEW

YORK TIMES"?

WHAT'S THE DEAL?

WE JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO

EXPLAIN IT, AND I CHOOSE TO

BELIEVE IN FATHER, SON, HOLY

SPIRIT AND THOSE ANGEL

GUYS.

Terry: WELL, GOD'S GOT

OUR BACKS, CERTAINLY, AND HE

DOES IT IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

AND ANGELS ARE ONE OF THE

WAYS HE EXPRESSES HIS GREAT

LOVE FOR US.

WE WANT TO BRING THAT TO YOU

TODAY, AS YOU WALK THROUGH

LIFE, TO KNOW THAT GOD HAS

YOU.

GOD HAS GOT YOUR BACK.

WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

PSALM 91 TODAY: "I WILL SAY

OF THE LORD, HE IS MY REFUGE

AND MY FORTRESS.

MY GOD, IN HIM I WILL

TRUST."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE HOPE TODAY HAS
