DETERMINED TO DEFEND THE

QURAN UNCOVERS THE REAL

TRUTH INSTEAD.

PLUS...

THE DIAGNOSIS WAS ALWAYS

THE SAME.

Gordon: A CRIPPLING

PAIN.

BONE SPURS, ARTHRITIS.

Gordon: -- AND A CRY TO

GOD.

AM I GOING TO HURT 12

YEARS, TOO.

Gordon: LEARN HOW THIS

WOMAN RECEIVED A MIRACLE.

THE PAIN WAS GONE AND IT

WAS SO REMARKABLE.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR THE FIRST TIME,

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS PUBLICLY

CALLED ON IRAN TO RELEASE

AMERICAN PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI.

HE SPOKE OUT ON BEHALF OF

AMERICAN KENNETH BAE AS

WELL, WHO IS BEING HELD IN

NORTH KOREA.

Terry: THE PRESIDENT

MADE THOSE REMARKS AS HE

TALKED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE

OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AT THE

NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST IN

WASHINGTON.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: CALLING IT

KEY TO NATIONAL SECURITY AND

A CENTRAL PENNANT OF

AMERICAN DIPLOMACY,

PRESIDENT OBAMA FOCUSED HIS

REMARKS ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

AND PUBLICLY CALLED FOR THE

RELEASE OF CHRISTIAN

MISSIONARY KENNETH BAE, WHO

IS IMPRISONED IN NORTH

KOREA, AND PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI, IMPRISONED IN

IRAN.

President Obama: WE

PRAY FOR PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI.

HE HAS BEEN HELD IN IRAN FOR

MORE THAN 18 MONTHS,

SENTENCED TO EIGHT YEARS IN

PRISON ON CHARGES RELATING

TO HIS CHRISTIAN BELIEFS.

AND AS WE CONTINUE TO WORK

FOR HIS FREEDOM, AGAIN WE

CALL ON THE IRANIAN

GOVERNMENT TO RELEASE PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI, SO HE CAN

RETURN TO THE LOVING ARMS OF

HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN

IDAHO.

Reporter: THE

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS

HAS INCREASED IN SOME

COUNTRIES.

NORTH KOREA LEADS THE LIST,

THAT INCLUDES IRAQ,

AFGHANISTAN, AND SAUDI

ARABIA.

DIPLOMACY CAN BE

UNCOMFORTABLE, THE PRESIDENT

SAYS, ESPECIALLY WHEN

DEALING WITH COUNTRIES LIKE

CHINA, THAT ARE

STRATEGICALLY AND

ECONOMICALLY IMPORTANT TO

THE U.S.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE

STRESSES TO CHINESE LEADERS

THAT CHINA'S POTENTIAL RESTS

ON UP HOLDING UNIVERSAL

RIGHTS, INCLUDING RIGHTS FOR

CHRISTIANS.

THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF TOLD

THE GROUP OF BIPARTISAN

LAWMAKERS THAT HE IS

THANKFUL FOR GOD'S GUIDANCE

IN HIS LIFE, A FAITH JOURNEY

THAT BEGAN WITH HIS WORK

WITH CHURCHES AS A COMMUNITY

ORGANIZER.

President Obama:

GRATEFUL NOT ONLY BECAUSE I

WAS BROKE AND THE CHURCH FED

ME, BUT BECAUSE IT LED TO

EVERYTHING ELSE.

IT LED ME TO EMBRACE JESUS

CHRIST AS MY LORD AND

SAVIOR.

IT LED ME TO MICHELLE, THE

LOVE OF MY LIFE, AND BLESSED

US WITH TWO EXTRAORDINARY

DAUGHTERS.

Reporter: LIKE

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION,

POVERTY DRAINS HUMAN

DIGNITY.

ACCORDING TO DR. ASHSHOD.

HE SAYS BY REMAINING DEVOTED

TO FAITH, CHRISTIANS CAN

TRANSFORM THE WORLD BY

HELPING TO END EXTREME

POVERTY.

BECAUSE THIS IS NOW

ACHIEVABLE, BUT ONLY IF ALL

OF US FROM SCIENCE,

BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT, AND

FAITH COME TOGETHER FOR THE

POOR.

Reporter: A WOMAN WHO

KNOWS ABOUT OVERCOMING

SHARED HER TESTIMONY.

HAWAIIAN SURFER BETHANY

HAMILTON BECAME A HOUSEHOLD

NAME WHEN SHE LOST HER ARM

TO A SHARK.

WHEN WE SUBMIT OUR LIFE

TO CHRIST, HIS GRACE, MERCY,

TRUTH, PEACE, AND LOVE WILL

BRING TRUE FULFILLMENT TO

OUR LIVES.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: JOIN WITH THE

PRESIDENT IN PRAYING FOR

BOTH PASTOR ABEDINI AND

KENNETH BAE.

WE NEED TO FIND A WAY TO GET

THEM RELEASED, AND WE ALSO

NEED TO BE PRAYING FOR THE

PERSECUTED CHURCH AROUND THE

WORLD.

THE STATISTICS ARE TRUE,

THAT THIS IS THE WORST TIME,

IF YOU WILL, FOR CHRISTIAN

PERSECUTION IN THE HISTORY

OF THE CHURCH.

WHEN YOU SEE THE NUMBER OF

CHRISTIANS WHO ARE BEING

IMPRISONED, BEING KILLED FOR

THEIR FAITH, THIS IS A TIME

FOR THE CHURCH TO BE

PRAYING.

WELL, YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS DOING TO SET

FREE PASTOR ABEDINI.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

WELL, JAY SECULO OF THE

AMERICAN CENTER OF LAW AND

JUSTICE TESTIFIED BEFORE

CONGRESS ABOUT THE I.R.S.

TEA PARTY SCANDAL ON

THURSDAY.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: GORDON,

CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL

LEADERS AND THEIR LAWYERS

TOLD A HOUSE OVERSIGHT

SUBCOMMITTEE THE GROUPS HAD

BEEN TARGETED BY THE I.R.S.

BECAUSE OF THEIR POLITICAL

VIEWS.

THE LAWYERS APPEARED ON

BEHALF OF GROUPS SUING THE

AGENCY.

THEY ARE CHARGING THEY HELD

UP THEIR TAX EXEMPT STATUS.

AND THEY BELIEVE THE I.R.S.

SINGLED THEM OUT BECAUSE OF

THEIR BELIEFS.

THIS WASN'T AN EQUAL

OPPORTUNITY DISCRIMINATION.

THIS WAS TARGETED

DISCRIMINATION COMING FROM

THE INTERNAL REVENUE

SERVICE.

WHAT I'D LIKE TO ADDRESS NOW

IS THAT OUR VIEW IS THAT

THAT DETERMINATION CAME FROM

THE HIGHEST RANKS OF THE

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE.

Reporter: LAWYERS ALSO

CONTRADICTED CLAIMS THAT THE

F.B.I. IS ACTIVELY

INVESTIGATING THE

SITUATION.

13 GOVERNMENT AGENTS ARE

REPORTEDLY LOOKING INTO IT,

BUT THEY SAY THE AGENTS HAVE

CONTACTED ANY TEA PARTY

OFFICIALS IN THE GROUPS

ALLEGEDLY TARGETED.

THE FIGHT OVER NATIONAL

EDUCATION STANDARDS HAS IN

TESTIFIED WITH THE EN

ENDORSEMENT OF A MAJOR

EVANGELICAL GROUP.

IT REPRESENTS 40,000

CHURCHES AND IS BACKING WHAT

IS KNOWN AS COMMON CORE.

AS HEATHER CELLS REPORTS,

THE ISSUE HAS DIVIDED BOTH

LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES.

Reporter: 45 STATES

HAVE ADOPTED THE COMMON CORE

ENGLISH AND MATH STANDARDS

FOR GRADES "K" THROUGH 12.

REVEREND SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ

SAYS HIGH EDUCATION GOALS

ARE A MATTER OF BIBLICAL

JUSTICE, NOTING RIGOROUS

STANDARDS MUST BE AVAILABLE

TO ALL CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY

THOSE IN POVERTY.

ENGLISH PROFESSOR KAREN

PRIOR ALSO BACKS THE COMMON

CORE.

SHE SAYS THE STANDARDS ARE

HELPING KIDS.

MANY KIDS HAVE COME TO US

WHO VERY RARELY, IF EVER,

READ A TEXT IN SCHOOL.

EVEN SOME STUDENTS WHO DO

WELL IN ENGLISH KIND OF

LEARN TO GET BY BY HAVING

BRILLIANT STANDARDS.

THE COMMON CORE IS SIMPLY

ASKING KIDS TO READ TEXT

CAREFULLY, UNDERSTAND WHAT A

TEXT IS SAYING, AND HOW IT

IS MAKING AN ARGUMENT, WHICH

IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

Reporter: OPPOSITION TO

THE CORE IS GROWING,

HOWEVER, WITH PARENT GROUPS

PUSHING BACK AGAINST WHAT

THEY PERCEIVE AS FEDERAL

OVERREACH.

THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

ENCOURAGED STATES TO ADOPT

THE STANDARDS BY TYING IN

FEDERAL FUNDING.

CRITICS SAY THE COPYRIGHTED

STANDARDS MAKE LOCAL CONTROL

OVER EDUCATION DIFFICULT, AT

BEST.

PARENTS CAN'T GET RELIEF

FROM THEIR STATE OFFICIALS.

THEY REALLY CAN'T GET RELIEF

FROM FEDERAL OFFICIALS AND

MANY RESPECTS.

AND THEY'RE LEFT WITH NO ONE

TO GO TO.

Reporter: THE

"WASHINGTON POST" REPORTS

TALK SHOW HOST AND CORE

SUPPORTER MIKE HUCKABEE IS

NOW URGING CORE CREATORS TO

REBRAND, NOTING THAT THE

COMMON CORE NAME HAS BECOME,

QUOTE,"TOXIC."

THAT STRATEGY MAY OR MAY NOT

APPEASE PARENTS, WHO WORRY

THEY'RE LOSING THEIR ABILITY

TO INFLUENCE JUST WHAT IS

TAUGHT IN SCHOOL.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: OPPONENTS OF

COMMON CORE ARE CONCERNED IT

HAS TRANSFERRED EDUCATIONAL

AUTHORITY FROM THE STATES TO

WASHINGTON, CREATING AN EVEN

MORE POWERFUL CENTRALIZED

GOVERNMENT.

THE SOCHI WINTER OLYMPIC

GAMES ARE UNDER WAY, BUT

EVEN AFTER YEARS OF LEAD

TIME, RUSSIA STILL ISN'T

READY.

UNFINISHED ROADS, DIRTY

HOTELS, AND TOXIC WATER.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY AN

EMBARRASSMENT.

YOU CAN TELL IN THE

ROOMS, THERE ARE SUBTLE

DETAILS THAT WOULD NORMALLY

BE FINISHED.

Reporter: AND IT IS NOT

JUST THE CITY THAT IS

SCRAMBLING WITH THE

FINISHING TOUCHES.

OFFICIALS ARE ADJUSTING

SEVERAL EVENTS AFTER SEVERAL

ATHLETES GOT HURT.

IN THE TRIAL RUNS, AT LEAST

THREE ATHLETES WERE

INJURED.

ONE OF THEM WAS SHAUN

WHITE.

HE SAYS HE IS NO LONGER

COMPETING IN THE EVENT

BECAUSE THE RISK OF INJURY

ISN'T WORTH IT.

SOON YOU MAY BE ABLE TO PAY

BY HAND, LITERAL.

TWO PEOPLE IN NEW JERSEY

HAVE CREATED A SYSTEM THAT

LINKS YOUR HAND TO YOUR

WALLET. IT SCANS THE

PATTERN OF VEINS IN YOUR

PALMS, AND YOU CAN USE YOUR

IDENTITY WHEN YOU PAY AT A

CHECK OUT OR ELSEWHERE, BY

USING A BIOMETRY PAYMENT.

Gordon: YOU SEE THE

SETUP COMING.

MUCH LIKE TERRORISM HAS BEEN

A SETUP FOR A MASSIVE

GOVERNMENT SURVEILLANCE

PROGRAM ON INDIVIDUALS WHO

HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH

TERRORISM, WE'RE NOW GOING

TO SEE CYBERCRIME, WHERE THE

THEFT OF CREDIT CARD DATA ON

THE INTERNET AND FROM

VARIOUS RETAIL STORES IS

GOING TO LEAD FOR A PUSH

THAT WE NEED BIOMETRICS,

WHETHER IT IS FINGERPRINT OR

AN IRIS PRINT, SOMETHING

LIKE THAT, TO GO ALONG WITH

THE TRANSACTION SO YOU KNOW

WHOEVER IS USING THE CARD

NUMBER IS ACTUALLY THE

PERSON THAT OWNS IT.

THAT IS JUST ONE STEP AWAY

FROM WHAT REVELATION SAYS

THAT YOU CAN'T BUY OR SELL

WITHOUT THE MARK.

SO WE'RE GETTING SET UP FOR

IT.

IS IT AROUND THE CORNER?

I THINK IT MAY BE SOONER

THAN WE ALL THINK.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, SHE IS

KNOWN ON THE INTERNET SIMPLY

AS THE BRAVE GERMAN WOMAN.

AND THIS PHONE VIDEO OF HER

HAS GONE VIRAL.

FIND OUT WHAT SHE DID AND

WHY WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: ISLAM IS STILL

GROWING INFLUENCE ACROSS

EUROPE.

AND IN GERMANY, ONE

CHRISTIAN WOMAN HAS TAKEN A

VERY PUBLIC STAND AGAINST

IT.

IN THIS CBN NEWS EXCLUSIVE,

DALE HURD BRINGS US HER

FIRST TELEVISION INTERVIEW.

Reporter: IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE AN INTERFAITH

CONCERT TO BRING

CHRISTIANITY AND I ISLAM

TOGETHER.

BUT WHEN THE MUSLIM IMAM

BEGAN HIS CALL TO PRAYER, HE

WAS INTERRUPTED BY A SMALL

WOMAN IN THE BALCONY,

PROCLAIMING THAT JESUS

CHRIST IS LORD OF GERMANY,

AND SAYING I BREAK THIS

CURSE.

SHE ALSO INVOKED THE NAME OF

MARTIN

LUTHER, AND WARNED

THE AUDIENCE.

THE VIDEO WENT VIRAL, AND

THIS MYSTERIOUS CHRISTIAN

LADY BECAME KNOWN ON THE

INTERNET SIMPLY AS THE BRAVE

GERMAN WOMAN.

IT HAPPENED AT THE MEMORIAL

CHURCH OF THE REFORMATION IN

THE CITY OF SPIRE, BUILT TO

OWNER MARTIN LUTHER.

THIS ISN'T JUST A

CHURCH.

IT IS A MONUMENT TO THE

PROTESTANT REFORMATION.

Reporter: AND IT WAS AT

THIS SPIRITUAL LANDMARK THAT

A MUSLIM IMAM WAS INVITED TO

GIVE THE CALL TO PRAYER IN A

CONCERT.

WHEN THE BRAVE GERMAN WOMAN,

WHO'S REAL NAME IS HEIDI

MUNT, HEARD ABOUT THE NAME,

SHE PRAYED.

I WAS ASKING JESUS -- I

SAID, LORD, SHALL I GO

THERE?

AND YOU KNOW WHEN I HAVE TO

DRIVE ONE AND A HALF HOURS,

I THINK ABOUT IS IT WORTH TO

GO, OR CAN OTHERS GO?

THIS IS A HUMAN LAZINESS,

YEAH?

Reporter: SHE GRABBED

HIS GERMAN FLAG, EMBRAZEND

WITH THE WORDS "JESUS CHRIST

IS LORD."

UNTIL THE IMAM STARTED

SHOUTING, I DIDN'T REALLY

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I HAD MY THOUGHTS.

BUT I WAS JUST PREPARED FOR

WHAT GOD WANTS ME TO DO.

Reporter: THEN THE

MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER BEGAN,

AND HEIDI SAYS SHE FELT

SOMETHING RISING UP INSIDE

HERE.

I WOULD CALL IT A HOLY

ANGER.

AND THEN I ROSE MY FLAG AND

I WAS PROCLAIMING THAT JESUS

CHRIST IS LORD OVER GERMANY.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

AND BY PROTEST, I BROKE

THIS CURSE BECAUSE THEY SAY

ONLY ALLAH IS THE LORD.

HE IS LORD, HE IS GOD, THE

ONLY GOD, AND I BROKE THIS

CURSE IN THIS CHURCH, AND I

BROKE IT OVER MY COUNTRY.

Reporter: AND SHE

REPEATED THE WORDS OF MARTIN

LUTHER IN 1521, AFTER HE

REFUSED TO RECANT HIS FAITH

IN SCRIPTURE ALONE.

"HERE I STAND, I CAN DO NO

OTHER."

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

I PROTESTED.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: SHE WAS

THROWN OUT OF THE CHURCH.

THEY SHOULD HAVE THROWN

IMAM OUT OF THE CHURCH AND

NOT ME BECAUSE I'M A

BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST,

BUT HE IS OF ANOTHER GOD.

THIS ALLAH IS NOT THE SAME

GOD.

THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH.

ALLAHU AKBAR -- IN GENERAL

MOST OF US KNOW THEY USE IT

WHEN THEY KILL PEOPLE.

THIS IS WORSHIP TO AN IDOL.

IT'S A WORSHIP, AND THEY

BRING THIS BLOOD OFFERING TO

THEIR GOD.

AND WHEN THE MUSLIMS CALL

ALLAHU AKBAR IN THE CHURCH,

THAT MEANS THIS CHURCH IS

NOT A CHURCH ANYMORE, IT'S A

MOSQUE.

Reporter: WITH HEIDI AT

THE CONCERT WAS CAMEL AND

MARION.

BEFORE COMING TO GERMANY,

KAMEL LIVED IN A MUSLIM

WORLD AND SAYS AN IMAM HAS

NO PLACE IN THE CHURCH.

MUSLIMS HAVE PERSECUTED

ME.

THEY DON'T WANT ME TO TELL

OTHERS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS

MY SAVIOR.

Reporter: MARION

BELONGS TO AN

ANTI-ISLAMIZATION GROUP

CALLING ITSELF THE WHITE

ROSE, TAKING THE SAME NAME

AS THE WORLD WAR II

ANTI-NAZI RESISTANT FILM.

SHOWN IN THE FILM, SOPHIE

SCHILL.

WE WANT TO SHOW GERMANY

AND THIS WORLD WE WILL NOT

BOW DOWN TO THE SLOW

ISLAMIZATION OF OUR

COUNTRY.

Reporter: HEIDI KNOWS

THAT HER FIRST TELEVISION

INTERVIEW COULD PLACE HER IN

EVEN GREATER DANGER.

PEOPLE ASK ME, DO YOU

HAVE FEAR?

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE

MUSLIMS?

AND I ONLY CAN SAY NO, I'M

NOT AFRAID OF THEM.

I KNOW MY GOD, THE LIVING

GOD OF THE BIBLE, CAN

PROTECT ME AS LONG AS HE

WANTS.

WHEN MY TIME IS OVER, I WILL

GO TO HIM.

Reporter: AN EVANGELIST

BY GIFTING, HEIDI GREW UP AS

AN I THINAN ATHEIST IN EAST

GERMANY, BUT NOW A BELIEVER,

SHE WANTS THE SPIRITUAL

REBIRTH OF GERMANY.

I FEEL I HAVE TO PROTECT

MY COUNTRY AND MY PEOPLE.

I'M ONLY A LITTLE WOMAN, BUT

I FEEL I HAVE TO PROTECT

THEM.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: MANY PEOPLE

ASSOCIATE GERMANY WITH THE

NAZIS, BUT GERMANY WAS ONCE

A BASE FOR WORLD MISSIONS,

SENDING MISSIONARIES TO

AFRICA, KOREA, AND TO

AMERICA.

HEIDI MUNT IS TRUSTING GOD

TO DO A MIRACLE IN WHAT

TODAY IS A VERY WEALTHY AND

SOME WOULD SAY SPIRITUALLY

DEAD NATION.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR

MY GOD, NOTHING.

NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING.

FROM A HUMAN POINT OF VIEW,

I FEEL THAT OUR COUNTRY IS

LOST.

REALLY LOST.

BUT I TRUST GOD, THAT HE HAS

A PLAN "A," AND THAT MY

COUNTRY IS NOT LOST.

THAT HE WILL REACH US AND HE

WILL COME AND CHANGE THE

WHOLE SITUATION.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS IN WESTERN

GERMANY.

Gordon: HEIDI IS AN

INCREDIBLY BRAVE WOMAN.

AND FOLLOWING IN THE

FOOTSTEPS OF MARTIN LUTHER,

TAKING A STAND AND SAYING,

HERE I STAND.

I CAN DO NO OTHER.

THAT IS HISTORIC.

AND YOU LOOK BACK AT THE

HISTORY OF GERMANY AND THE

CONFESSING CHURCH, THE BRAVE

MEN AND WOMEN THAT STOOD UP

TO HITLER IN THE 1940s,

AND MANY OF THEM PAID WITH

THEIR LIVES.

HEIDI'S LIFE IS AT RISK.

AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT'S

HAPPENED IN EUROPE, WHERE

THERE WAS AN ASSASSINATION

OF A FIL FILM-MAKER JUST

BECAUSE HE PUT OUT A FILM

THAT WAS AGAINST ISLAM, AND

HE WAS KILLED VERY PUBLICLY,

IN THE STREETS.

HER LIFE IS AT RISK.

AND SHE IS IN DANGER.

SHE HAS ASKED US TO PRAY.

SHE'S VERY BRAVE FOR BEING

ON TELEVISION WITH THIS.

AND SHE HAS ASKED US TO

PRAY.

AND SO LET'S PRAY FOR HER.

JUST STOP NOW AND LET'S PRAY

FOR HER.

WE HAVE ASKED FOR PRAYER FOR

THE PERSECUTED CHURCH.

AND LET'S ASK FOR BOLDNESS,

THAT JUST LIKE HEIDI, WE'LL

TAKE A STAND.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT HEIDI TO

YOU, AND WE LIFT ALL OF US

TO YOU.

AND WE ASK JUST AS THE

APOSTLES ASKED WHEN THEY

HEARD THE THREATS COMING

FROM THE SANHEDRON, WHEN

THEY HEARD THOSE THREATS.

LORD, THEY DIDN'T ASK FOR

PROTECTION.

THEY ASKED FOR BOLDNESS TO

PREACH YOUR GOSPEL.

SO WE JOIN IN THAT PRAYER,

AND ASK FOR EVEN MORE

BOLDNESS, TO PROCLAIM YOUR

GOOD NEWS.

THAT THERE IS NO OTHER NAME

UNDER HEAVEN WHEREBY WE MAY

BE SAVED.

AND THAT NAME IS JESUS

CHRIST.

GIVE US THIS BOLDNESS, AND

WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND TO

PERFORM SIGNS AND WONDERS.

AND THAT THE PROM MAKES

PROCLAMATION OF THE GOOD

NEWS WOULD BE ACCOMPANIED BY

YOUR POWER, FOR THE GOSPEL

IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO

SALVATION.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE

ABOUT THE HISTORY HERE, AND

SPECIFICALLY WHAT WAS

INTENDED WHEN AN IMAM STANDS

IN A CHURCH, AND WHAT CAN

HAPPEN, AND HOW THAT

LITERALLY, UNDER ISLAMIC

LAW, UNDER SHARI'A, HOW THAT

DEDICATES THAT CHURCH AND

NOW MAKES IT A MOSQUE.

WE'VE GOT IT FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "THE FALL OF

CONSTANNOPEL," WHICH IS WHEN

SULEMAN STOOD UP IN THE

GREATEST CHURCH IN

CHRISTIANITY AT THAT POINT

IN TIME, AND HE HAD AN IMAM

COME IN AND DECLARE THAT

THIS IS NO LONGER A CHURCH;

THIS IS A MOSQUE.

AND IT WAS THE SAME PRAYER

THAT WAS JUST DONE IN

GERMANY.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW EVEN

ANOTHER STRANGE COINCIDENCE,

IF YOU WILL, OF HISTORY,

THAT WHAT WAS GOING ON WHEN

MARTIN LUTHER FIRST PUT HIS

THESIS UP IN GERMANY IS THAT

THE MUSLIMS WERE ENGAGED IN

THE SIEGE OF VIENNA.

BOTH OF THOSE STORIES ARE

AVAILABLE TO YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

cbn.com, AND YOU CAN SEE

THEM.

GET EDUCATED ON THE HISTORY

HERE BECAUSE WHAT'S GOING ON

NOW IS THERE IS NO LONGER AN

INVASION BY FORCE.

THERE IS AN INVASION BY

POPULATION, WHERE THEY'RE

LOOKING TO CHANGE EUROPE AND

MAKE IT ISLAMIC.

AND THAT IS A DECLARED

PLAN.

AND THIS IS YET ANOTHER STEP

IN THAT PLAN.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

MEET A MAN WHO HAD READ THE

ENTIRE QURAN BY THE TIME HE

WAS SIX YEARS OLD.

AND HEAR HOW A SERIES OF

DREAMS LED THIS MUSLIM TO

BECOME A CHRISTIAN.

THEN LATER ON, A WOMAN WITH

DEBILITATING FOOT PAIN...

I HAVE A GREAT EMPATHY

FOR PEOPLE WHO SUFFER EVERY

DAY WITH PAIN NOW.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT

BEFORE.

I DO NOW.

Terry: WATCH HOW SHE

WAS HEALED.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Gordon: WHEN 9/11 HIT,

NABIL WAS A FRESHMAN IN

COLLEGE, AND FOR THE FIRST

TIME HE STRUGGLED TO

RECONCILE THE ISLAM HE SAW

ON HIS TV SCREEN WITH THE

ISLAM HE HAD KNOWN ALL HIS

LIFE.

Reporter: NABEEL

QURESHI GREW UP IN A DEVOUT

MUSLIM HOME IN VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA.

HE READ THE ENTIRE QURAN BY

THE TIME HE WAS SIX AND

PRAYED FIVE TIMES A DAY

WITHOUT FAIL.

THROUGH THE DAYS, NABEEL

DEVOTION TO ISLAM DIDN'T

WAIVER.

THEN IN COLLEGE, HE AND A

CHRISTIAN STARTED AN ONGOING

CLAIM ABOUT THE HISTORICAL

CLAIMS OF BOTH RELIGIONS.

AFTER THREE YEARS, HE

REALIZED THE GOSPEL COULD

WITHSTAND RIGOROUS SCRUTINY,

AND ISLAM COULD NOT.

IN HIS BOOK, NABEEL QURESHI

DESCRIBES HIS QUEST TO

DEFEND ISLAM, AND WHAT IT

COST HIM WHEN HE DISCOVERED

THE TRUTH.

Gordon: NABEEL QURESHI

IS WITH US NOW.

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THANK YOU.

Gordon: WE JUST SAW A

NEW STORY COMING OUT OF

GERMANY.

WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF

AN IMAM GIVING THE CALL IN A

CHURCH?

WE KNOW ANGELA MERKEL IN

2010 SAID MULTI-CULTURISM

HAS FAILED.

WE DO KNOW IN THE PAST, WHEN

AN IMAM HAS RECITED THE

QURAN IN A CHURCH, IT HAS

BEEN DEDICATED AS A MOSQUE.

SO THAT HISTORY IS THERE.

BUT THERE IS ALSO THIS NEW

WAVE OF EUROPEAN MUSLIMS

TRYING TO RECONCILE WITH

CHRISTIANS AND CREATE

DIALOGUE.

SO WE HAVE TO WEIGH EXACTLY

WHAT IS GOING ON.

Gordon: WHAT IS GOING

ON NOW IN TERMS OF MUSLIMS?

I WOULD IMAGINE THERE HAS TO

BE A STRUGGLE WITH BELIEF.

ON ONE SIDE YOU SEE SUICIDE

BOMBERS WHO ARE PRAISED IN

THE MOSQUE OF MECCA AND

MEDINA AND JERUSALEM.

IS THAT SORT OF MAINSTREAM?

OR IS THAT CONSIDERED

RADICAL?

I WOULD SAY THAT'S

RADICAL.

FROM ALL OF THE MUSLIM

FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT I

HAD GROWING UP, NO ONE WOULD

EVER HAVE PRAISED A SUICIDE

BOMBER.

GRANTED, THAT WAS IN THE

WEST, BUT THAT'S NOT

COMMON.

MOST MUSLIMS AROUND THE

WORLD SIMPLY JUST WANT TO

LIVE IN PEACE.

THEY WANT TO BE HOSPITABLE

AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

THERE IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY

TO SHARE THE GOSPEL IF WE

DON'T HAVE FEAR AND WE LOVE

EACH OTHER THE WAY CHRIST

HAS CALLED US TO LOVE EACH

OTHER.

Gordon: WHAT WAS YOUR

STORY?

HERE YOU SEE 9/11 ON A

SCREEN, AND YOU TRY TO

RECONCILE IT WITH A RELIGION

AND PEACE THAT YOU GREW UP

WITH.

WHAT HAPPENED?

WELL, WHEN I SAW 9/11, I

REALIZED THAT THERE IS A LOT

MORE TO MY FAITH THAN I HAD

BEEN TAUGHT.

I HAD BEEN TAUGHT THAT ISLAM

IS A RELIGION OF PEACE.

I SAW MY DUTY AS A MUSLIM TO

BE PEACEFUL AND TO SPREAD

PEACE.

AND ALL OF THE MUSLIMS

AROUND ME WERE THE SAME

WAY.

THEN WE WERE CONFRONTED WITH

THIS VERY REAL ISLAM ON

TELEVISION, AND I HAD TO

RECONCILE THE TWO.

I DID THAT BY LOOKING INTO

THE PAGES OF HISTORY.

WHO IS MOHAMMED?

WHAT DOES THE ORIGINAL ISLAM

LOOK LIKE?

WHEN I READ THE BIOGRAPHY

WITH MY OWN EYES, I LEARNED

A LOT THAT CAUSED ME TO

QUESTION MY FAITH.

Gordon: I'VE HEARD FROM

MUSLIM LEADERS THAT ISLAM

NEEDS A REFORMATION.

IS THAT TRUE?

AND IF SO, HOW DOES THAT

HAPPEN?

I THINK THE IDEA OF A

REFORMATION IS GOING BACK TO

THE ROOTS OF YOUR FAITH.

AND CHRISTIANITY, WHEN WE

HAD A REFORMATION, WE

RETURNED TO THE WAY CHRIST

TAUGHT US TO LIVE.

I WOULDN'T WANT TO SEE THAT

HAPPEN IN ISLAM.

I WOULDN'T WANT TO SEE

MUSLIMS START BECOMING LIKE

MOHAMMED.

THAT WOULD BE A BAD THING.

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM

START TO ENGAGE IN WESTERN

VALUES AND INDIVIDUALISM AND

FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND

WORSHIP.

THOSE ARE THE KINDS OF

THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE.

I DON'T AGREE WITH THAT

STATEMENT THAT ISLAM NEEDS A

REFORMATION.

Gordon: WHAT LED YOU TO

CHRISTIANITY?

I THINK THE BOOK YOU'VE

DONE, "SEEKING ALLAH AND

THEN FINDING JESUS," IS SORT

OF A FASCINATING ACCOUNT OF,

LIKE, AUGUSTINE'S

CONFESSIONS.

WHEN I WAS RAISED IN THE

STATES, I WAS TAUGHT THAT

ISLAM WAS THE TRUTH.

AND THAT JESUS CHRIST DID

NOT DIE ON A CROSS AND HE

CERTAINLY DID NOT RISE FROM

THE DEAD.

I RAN INTO A CHRISTIAN

FRIEND WHO COULD DEFEND THE

BIBLE, AND HE DEFENDED THE

IDEA THAT JESUS DID CLAIM TO

BE GOD AND HE DID DIE ON THE

CROSS.

I HAD TO LOOK INTO THE

EVIDENCE.

THE EVIDENCE CONVINCED WHAT

I HAD BEEN TAUGHT ABOUT

MOHAMMED AND JESUS WAS

FALSE.

AT THAT POINT I GOT ON MY

KNEES AND ASKED GOD TO THREE

ME DIRECTLY THROUGH A DREAM

OR THROUGH VISIONS WHO HE

WAS.

AND THROUGH A VISION AND

THREE DREAMS, I ACCEPTED

CHRIST.

Gordon: TELL US ABOUT

THOSE.

BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN MY

EXPERIENCE THAT I'VE NEVER

BEEN ABLE TO ARGUE SOMEBODY

TO BELIEVE.

AS MUCH AS APOLOGETICS PLAYS

A ROLE IN SORT OF GETTING

THE MIND TO SAY MAYBE THERE

IS SOMETHING HERE, YOU DON'T

EVER ARRIVE AT THAT BELIEF

WITHOUT A DIRECT ENCOUNTER.

SO WHAT WAS THE VISION?

I THINK YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT, YOU HAVE TO HAVE A

DIRECT ENCOUNTER WITH GOD.

APOLOGETICS CLEARS THE WAY.

ALL OF THE BARRIERS IN MY

CHILDHOOD HAD TO COME DOWN.

GIRMTD IT

Gordon: IT GETS YOU TO

WONDER.

EXACTLY.

IN THE SECOND DREAM I WAS

STANDING AT THE THRESHOLD OF

A NARROW DOOR, JUST WIDE

ENOUGH TO FIT ME AND JUST

TALL ENOUGH TO FIT ME.

INSIDE THIS DOORWAY, I SAW A

FEAST.

I KNOW THAT THAT FEAST WAS

HEAVEN.

AND I WANTED TO BE IN THAT

ROOM BECAUSE I COULDN'T

BECAUSE THERE WAS STANDING

AT THE DOOR.

MY FRIEND, DAVID, WHO HAD

SHARED THE GOSPEL WITH ME.

HE WAS BLOCKING THE

ENTRYWAY.

I SAID, DAVID, I THOUGHT WE

WERE GOING TO EAT TOGETHER,

IN I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO

BE IN HEAVEN.

AND HE SAID, YOU HAVEN'T

RESPONDED.

I KNEW THAT I HAD TO RESPOND

TO HIS INVITATION TO ACCEPT

THE GOSPEL.

AND HE TOLD ME, NABEEL, LOOK

AT LUKE 13: 22.

WHEN I OPENED THE BIBLE, IT

SAID "THE NARROW DOOR."

AND IT WAS TALKING ABOUT A

FEAST IN THE KINGDOM OF

HEAVEN.

AND TO MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO

ENTER THROUGH THAT NARROW

DOOR BECAUSE MANY WILL TRY

AND FEW WILL BE ABLE.

AND YOU WILL SEE MANY

SITTING INSIDE WITH JACOB.

AND I KNEW I HAD TO ACCEPT

DAVID'S INVITATION BECAUSE

GOD HAD GIVEN ME A DREAM

STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BIBLE

AND SHOWED ME WHERE I WAS.

Gordon: I'M HEARING

STORIES FROM ALL OVER THE

MUSLIM WORLD WHERE JESUS IS

SHOWING UP IN DREAMS AND

VISIONS.

WHY IS THAT SO PREVALENT?

BECAUSE THERE SEEMS TO BE AN

ERNEST REVELATION.

IT IS A COM CULMINATION

OF FACTORS.

DREAMS SPECIFICALLY IN AND

OF THEMSELVES, MUSLIMS DON'T

BELIEVE THEY CAN HEAR

MESSAGES FROM GOD DURING

PRAYER.

THEY BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY

THEY'RE GOING TO HEAR FROM

GOD IS IN DREAMS.

AND THEY HAVE A SPECIAL

DREAM ASKING GOD TO GIVE

THEM DREAMS.

SO IT IS A COMMON WAY THEY

RECEIVE GUIDANCE FROM ALLAH,

OR THAT'S WHAT THEY ASK FOR,

ANYWAY.

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

YOU HAVE SO MANY MUSLIMS

AROUND THE MIDDLE EAST WHO

HAVE TRIED ISLAM, AND THEY

REALIZED IT HAS FAILED.

THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

IRAN.

AFTER THE REVOLUTION IN THE

'70s, THEY SAID, THIS

ISN'T WORKING.

AND NOW THEY'RE COMING TO

CHRIST IN DROVES.

THE SAME IN EGYPT.

A SURVEY WAS DONE WHERE WELL

OVER 90% OF THE PEOPLE THERE

BELIEVED IN ALLAH.

BUT NOW, AFTER THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD HAS COME AND

GIVEN IT A SHOT, ANOTHER

SURVEY WAS DONE WHERE ABOUT

70% BELIEVE IN ALLAH.

SO THE POLITICAL

REVOLUTIONS, COMBINED WITH

THE INTERNET, AND COMBINED

WITH GOD'S SUPER NATURAL

REVELATION IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, HE IS BRINGING PEOPLE

TO CHRIST.

Gordon: WHAT WOULD YOU

TELL SOMEBODY WATCHING RIGHT

NOW, WHO IS WONDERING, IS

THIS TRUE?

IS THE EXPERIENCE YOU HAD IN

A DREAM TRUE?

HOW CAN THEY GET THAT FOR

THEMSELVES?

I WOULD SAY WE SHOULD

REMEMBER WHAT JESUS SAYS IN

THE BOOK OF MATTHEW 7: "ASK

AND YOU SHOULD RECEIVE.

SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND.

KNOCK AND THE DOOR WILL BE

OPENED."

IF YOU ARE TRULY SEEKING

GOD, IF YOU COME ON YOUR

KNEES BEFORE HIM -- LOOK, HE

LOVES YOU, AND HE DIED ON

THE CROSS FOR YOU.

HE WANTS TO REVEAL HIMSELF

TO YOU.

IF YOU COME TO HIM AND YOU

PUT HIM FIRST, AND YOU SAY I

DON'T CARE WHAT IT DOES TO

MY LIFE, I WANT TO KNOW GOD,

AND HE WILL FIND YOU.

Gordon: WHAT HAVE BEEN

THE CONSEQUENSES FOR YOU?

BECAUSE IN ISLAM, IF YOU

CONVERT, IT IS A DISHONOR TO

YOUR FAMILY, AND

SPECIFICALLY TO YOUR

MOTHER.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU?

IT HAS BEEN VERY

DIFFICULT.

MY FAMILY IS VERY CLOSE.

IT IS JUST THE FOUR OF US.

MY FATHER WAS IN THE U.S.

NAVY, SO WE MOVED AROUND A

LOT.

SO WE WERE VERY, VERY

CLOSE.

IT COST A LOT.

I HAVEN'T HAD A RELATIONSHIP

WITH MY PARENTS LIKE I HAD.

IT HAS BEEN VERY PAINFUL

EVERY DAY.

MY MOTHER -- IT HAS BEEN

EIGHT YEARS AND SHE IS IN

TEARS EVERY DAY.

THEIR REPUTATION HAS GONE

DOWN IN THE COMMUNITY.

THEIR HONOR WAS BUILT ON

THEIR ISLAMIC REPUTATION.

I'VE HURT THEM QUITE A BIT,

BUT CHRIST SAYS IF YOU LOVE

YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER MORE,

YOU'RE NOT WORTHY OF ME.

I THINK THAT THE LORD WILL

INTRODUCE HIS TRUTH, IF WE

MAKE THESE KINDS OF

SACRIFICES, TO A LARGER

COMMUNITY.

Gordon: HOW CAN PEOPLE

PRAY FOR YOU.

PLEASE DO PRAY FOR MY

FAMILY.

PLEASE PRAY FOR CHRIST TO BE

MADE KNOWN IN THE MUSLIM

WORLD.

SO MANY PEOPLE APPROACH

MUSLIMS WITH A LACK OF

KNOWLEDGE, IGNORANCE, FEAR.

WHEREAS CHRIST WAS WILLING

TO LOVE AND DIE FOR HIS

ENEMIES.

WE HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN A

SPIRIT OF FEAR, BUT A SPIRIT

OF POWER AND LOVE.

THAT'S WHY I HAVE WRITTEN

THIS BOOK, TO HOPEFULLY

INTRODUCE PEOPLE TO ISLAM

FROM THE INSIDE, SO THEY CAN

START LOVING ISLAM'S, AND

STILL UP HOLDING THE TRUTH,

NOT COMPROMISING THE GOSPEL,

BUT LOVING TO THE POINT OF

EVEN DEATH.

Gordon: AMEN.

IF YOU WANT TO GET A COPY OF

THE BOOK, IT'S CALLED

"SEEKING ALLAH, FINDING

JESUS."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

AND WE HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH NABEEL ON OUR

WEBSITE.

TO WATCH THAT, ALL YOU HAVE

TO DO IS LOG ON TO cbn.com

AND CLICK ON THE "IN THE

GREEN ROOM" LINK.

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE VERY COURAGEOUS.

BLESS YOU.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

EMMA SAYS, "I'M A

16-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO IS

HAVING OCCASIONAL CONFUSING

DREAMS.

HOW CAN I TELL WHAT THESE

DREAMS MEAN?"

WE'LL TACKLE HER QUESTION

AND MORE COMING UP LATER.

PLUS, YOU'LL MEET A

5-YEAR-OLD WHO WAS ONCE

FORCED TO BEG ON THE

STREETS, AND YOU'LL SEE HOW

HE FOUND A NEW HOME.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES

UNION IS SUING LOS ANGELES

COUNTY LEADERS OVER THE

DECISION TO RESTORE A CROSS

TO THE COUNTRY'S OFFICIAL

SEAL.

THIS SEAL IS DISPLAYED ON

BUILDINGS, VEHICLES, AND

OFFICIAL WRITTEN

COMMUNITIES.

THE ACLU CLAIMS IT VIOLATES

SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND

STATE.

COUNTY SUPERVISORS VOTED

LAST MONTH TO PUT THE CROSS

BACK ON THE SEAL, TO MAKE

THE PICTURE HISTORICALLY AND

ARCHITECTURALLY ACT

ACCURATE.

DURING A DRY SEASON, A SMALL

COMMUNITY IN NEW HOPE HAD A

SMALL RIVER AS A WATER

SOURCE.

"OPERATION BLESSING'S" TEAMS

PARTNERED WITH A LOCAL

ORGANIZATION TO DRILL A WELL

FOR THE COMMUNITY.

O.B. DELIVERED ALL OF THE

MATERIALS TO BUILD A TANK

AND SYSTEM, TO PIPE WATER

INTO EVERY HOME.

TODAY EVERY FAMILY HAS

ACCESS TO WATER WHENEVER

THEY NEED IT.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING TO ITS WEBSITE,

OB.ORG.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: HERE IN

AMERICA, MOST 5-YEAR-OLDS

ARE JUST STARTING

KINDERGARTEN.

BUT IN EASTERN INDIA, ONE

LITTLE BOY SPENT HIS DAYS ON

THE STREETS BEGGING FOR

FOOD.

Terry: EVERY DAY, FROM

DAWN UNTIL DUSK, SIDU SINGS

THROUGHOUT HIS VILLAGE IN

INDIA.

IT IS THE ONLY WAY THE

5-YEAR-OLD CAN MAKE ENOUGH

TO BUY FOOD.

MY FATHER DIED BEFORE I

WAS BORN, AND MY MOTHER DIED

THE DAY SHE GAVE BIRTH TO

ME.

Terry: HIS GRANDMOTHER

SELLS FIREWOOD SHE COLLECTS

FROM THE JUNGLE, WHILE SIDU

BEGS AT THE SHOPS.

SHE MAKES ENOUGH TO LIVE ON

HER OWN, BUT SOMETIMES THEIR

COMBINED INCOME ISN'T ENOUGH

TO BUY FOOD FOR THEM BOTH.

SO SHE DECIDED TO TAKE HIM

TO A CHILDREN'S HOME,

SUPPORTED BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

HERE HE HAS FOOD EVERY

DAY.

AND HE IS ENROLLED IN A

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

BEFORE COMING HERE, I HAD

TO WORK ALL THE TIME.

BUT NOW I CAN GO TO SCHOOL

AND LEARN MANY THINGS.

Terry: IT DIDN'T TAKE

LONG BEFORE SIDU ASKED JESUS

TO BE HIS LORD AND SAVIOR.

NOW INSTEAD OF SINGING FOR

FOOD, HE SINGS ABOUT GOD'S

LOVE.

*

MY NEW PARENTS AND

FRIENDS LOVE ME SO MUCH.

I REALLY LIKE IT HERE.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

WOMAN WHO SUFFERED EXTREME

PAIN FOR YEARS ASKS A

QUESTION.

I SAID, YOU KNOW, LORD,

AM I GOING TO HURT 12

YEARS?

THAT'S ALL I SAID, AM I

GOING TO HURT 12 YEARS?

Terry: SEE HOW THE

ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION LED

TO THIS WOMAN'S SUPERNATURAL

HEALING.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: VICTORIA

RODRIGUEZ HAD TO QUIT HER

JOB AND ALL OF THE

ACTIVITIES SHE LOVED TO DO.

CRIPPLING PAIN ROBBED HER OF

HER JOY IN LIFE AND LEFT HER

DEPRESSED.

AFTER FOUR YEARS, VICTORIA

HAD ALMOST GIVEN UP HOPE SHE

WOULD EVER BE HEALED.

JUST OUT OF THE BLUE, THE

PAIN WOULD HIT ME AND I

WOULD FALL.

MY ARCHES WERE FALLING, AND

I ALSO HAD BONE SPURS,

ARTHRITIS, AND NEMOSIS,

WHICH IS AN INFECTION OF THE

FOOT.

I WENT TO CHARACTER

CHIROPRACTORS AND DOCTORS,

BUT THE DIAGNOSIS WAS ALWAYS

THE SAME.

THE ONLY WAY THEY COULD SEE

OUT WOULD BE SURGERY.

I LEFT MY EMPLOYMENT.

I COULDN'T WORK THERE

ANYMORE.

WE WERE ON OUR FEET NINE

HOURS A DAY.

I WENT THROUGH A GREAT

PERIOD OF SADNESS, AND IT

DID BORDER LINE A

DEPRESSION, I WOULD SAY.

BECAUSE YOU CAN'T ENJOY THE

LIFE THAT YOU USED TO.

I HAVE A GREAT EMPATHY FOR

PEOPLE WHO SUFFER EVERY DAY

WITH PAIN NOW.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THAT

BEFORE, BUT I DO NOW.

I CAME IN, AND "THE 700

CLUB" WAS ON.

AND IT WAS THE LAST 10

MINUTES.

AND THERE WAS A YOUNG WOMAN

THERE GIVING HER TESTIMONY

ABOUT HOW SHE RAN FOR 12

YEARS, AND EVERY NIGHT HER

FEET WOULD HURT.

I JUST HAD THIS OVERWHELMING

COMPASSION FOR HER.

AND THEN SHE BEGAN TO TALK

ABOUT HOW GOD HAD HEALED

HER.

AND I SAID, YOU KNOW, LORD,

AM I GOING TO HURT 12

YEARS?

THAT'S ALL I SAID, AM I

GOING TO HURT 12 YEARS,

TOO.

THAT'S WHEN GORDON ROBERTSON

CAME ON.

Gordon: THERE IS A

WOMAN SAYING THE SOLES OF

YOUR FEET -- YOU'VE GOT

PROBLEMS WITH FALLEN ARCHES,

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU NOW.

I HAD THIS SUPERNATURAL

KNOWLEDGE I WAS HEALED.

SO I STOOD UP AND STARTED

JUMPING UP AND DOWN LIKE A

RABBIT, JUST REJOICING AND

LAUGHING AND CRYING BECAUSE

THE PAIN WAS GONE.

MY FEET WEREN'T HURTING, MY

BACK WASN'T HURTING.

IT WAS SO REMARKABLE.

A FEW MONTHS LATER, MY LEFT

FOOT STARTED HURTING AGAIN.

AND I WAS, LIKE, NO, GOD IS

HEALING MY FEET.

I HAD ALREADY BEEN TO THE

DOCTOR, HAD ALL OF MY

RECORDS CLOSED, AND I HAD

STOPPED MY DISABILITY.

I TURNED ON THE TV AGAIN,

AND THERE IS "THE 700 CLUB"

AGAIN.

TERRY MEEUWSEN HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE FOR SOMEONE'S LEFT

FOOT.

I RECORDED IT AND PLAYED IT

OVER AND OVER, AND FINALLY

MY LEFT FOOT STOPPED

HURTING.

GOD WANTED ME TO FLO KNOW

HE WAS IN THE BUSINESS OF

HEALING.

HE DID COMPLETE WHAT HE

STARTED.

I GET TO WEAR COWBOY BOOTS

AGAIN, AND NOW I'M BEGINNING

TO WEAR SHOES THAT I LOVE

AGAIN.

I QUIT MY GYM, AND I GIVE

THAT MEMBERSHIP MONEY TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND THE PEOPLE ASK WHY ME?

WHY ME?

I ASKED THAT, WHY ME, GOD?

WHY DID YOU HEAL ME?

WHAT DID I DO THAT DESERVES

THIS?

AND I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

JESUS DID IT ALL.

HE PURCHASED OUR SALVATION,

BUT HE PURCHASED OUR HEALING

AND OUR DELIVERANCE, TOO.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IT'S

NOT BECAUSE WE EARN IT.

IT IS BECAUSE HE IS

AMAZING.

IT IS HIS AMAZING GRACE.

SO WE WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME

TODAY TO SHARE SOME OTHER

REPORTS WITH YOU.

THIS IS MORGAN FROM

MICHIGAN, AND HE FELL AND

WAS SERIOUSLY INJURED.

AND HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

FOUR RUPTURED DISKS IN HIS

NECK.

HE ALSO HAD A PINCHED NERVE

AND WAS ON POWERFUL PAIN

MEDICATION WHILE HE WENT ON

PHYSICAL THERAPY.

HIS DOCTORS SUGGESTED THAT

SURGERY MIGHT HELP HIM AND

SCHEDULED THE OPERATION.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND, GORDON, HE

HEARD YOU GIVING A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT COMPRESSION

ON THE SPINE AND TREMENDOUS

PAIN.

AND THEN YOU SAID,

GORDON, "IN JESUS' NAME, BE

HEALED AND BE SET FREE.

RAISE YOUR ARMS AND BEGIN

PRAISING HIM FOR THE HEALING

YOU ARE RECEIVING."

MORGAN DID JUST THAT, AND HE

WAS ABLE TO RAISE BOTH HIS

ARMS WITHOUT ANY PAIN IN HIS

NECK OR ARMS.

AND HIS DOCTOR CONFIRMED HIS

RECOVERY AND THE SURGERY WAS

CANCELLED.

Gordon: THIS MAN HAD A

PAIN IN HIS EAR, AND HE WAS

ALMOST COMPLETELY DEAF IN

THAT EAR.

HE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND TERRY, YOU HAD A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE "YOU HAVE

A COMPROMISED HEARING

CONDITION.

YOU'RE NOT TOTALLY DEAF, BUT

IT IS LIKE EVERYTHING IS FAR

AWAY AND HALLOW SOUNDING.

GOD IS OPENING YOUR EARS UP,

AND YOU'LL HEAR A POP, AND

YOU'RE HEARING WILL BE

TOTALLY RESTORED."

JUST THEN BLAZE HEARD A POP

IN HIS EAR, AND SUDDENLY HE

COULD HEAR NORMALLY, AND HE

WAS PRAISING GOD.

I LOVE THE STORY BECAUSE SHE

HAD TO CONTEND FOR HER

HEALING.

HE WENT OFF DISABILITY, SHE

WENT OFF ALL MEDICATION.

SHE HAD HER DOCTOR CLOSE HER

FILE, AND EVERYTHING WAS

FINE.

THUNDER SHTHEN SHE STARTED

TO NOTICE PAIN AGAIN, AND

SHE CONTENDED.

SHE LAID HOLD OF IT.

REALIZE THAT DISEASE IS

ILLEGAL IN THE KINGDOM OF

HEAVEN.

START THINKING OF HEAVEN.

IS ANYBODY SICK THERE?

ANYBODY IN PAIN?

ANYBODY LONELY?

ANYBODY HAVING FINANCIAL

DIFFICULTY?

NO.

SO LET'S PRAY LIKE JESUS

PRAYED, THAT GOD'S WILL

WOULD BE DONE, HIS WILL

WOULD BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT

IS IN HEAVEN.

SO LET'S CONTEND FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

LET'S PRAY THAT GOD'S WILL

WOULD BE DONE IN YOUR BODY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BEG AND

PLEAD FOR IT.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE

WHAT JESUS HAS ALREADY

ACCOMPLISHED.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST THANK YOU FOR

WHAT YOU'VE DONE.

WE LOOK TO YOU ON THE

CROSS.

WE SEE YOU AND WE DECLARE

THAT BY YOUR STRIPES WE WERE

HEALED, WE ARE HEALED NOW.

AND WE LOOK TO YOU, RISEN

FROM THE GRAVE, SEATED AT

THE RIGHT HAND OF THE

FATHER, JOINING WITH OUR

PRAYERS NOW.

AND SO TOGETHER WE SAY, KING

KINGDOM OF GOD COME, WILL OF

GOD BE DONE IN THESE BODIES

NOW.

AND ALL SICKNESS AND ALL

DISEASE BE GONE IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

INJURED YOUR RIGHT E ELBOW,

AND THERE IS LINGERING PAIN

AND SWELLING, AND GOD IS

JUST GOING TO MIRACULOUSLY

TAKE ALL OF THAT AWAY.

JUST BEGIN TO MOVE THAT ARM

AND PRAISE HIM FOR WHAT HE

IS DOING FOR YOU.

JUST RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE HAD

LINGERING LUNG INFECTIONS,

AND YOU JUST CAN'T EVER SEEM

TO GET CLEAR.

GOD IS RESTORING EVERYTHING

TO YOU.

HE IS GIVING YOU HEALTH AND

VITALITY.

BEGIN TO BREATHE DEEPLY AND

RECEIVE IT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED

WITH AND HAVE SYMPTOMS THAT

EVIDENCE ASPERGER'S, AND

YOUR FAMILY HAS BEEN

DESPERATE.

YOU HAVE BEEN DESPERATE.

GOD IS HEALING YOU TODAY.

JUST LIFT UP YOUR HANDS AND

RECEIVE IT.

YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS.

WHEN YOU EAT, IT IS LIKE

YOUR ABDOMEN JUST GETS ROCK

HARD AND YOU HAVE A HARD

TIME DIGESTING YOUR FOOD.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO

EAT ANYTHING YOU WANT AND

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH IT.

Gordon: GOD IS ABLE.

JUST START BELIEVING.

HOW BIG IS POSSIBLE?

HOW BIG IS HIS GREATNESS?

HE IS ABLE TO HEAL GENETIC

CONDITIONS.

HE IS ABLE TO HEAL

ANYTHING.

JUST LOOK TO JESUS, THE

AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF YOUR

FAITH.

AND BE HEALED NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US AND LET US KNOW.

1-800-759-0700.

AND WE BELIEVE IN CONTENDING

PRAYER.

SO IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE 24 HOURS A DAY, SEVEN

DAYS A WEEK.

WE WANT TO BE HERE FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE,

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, WHEN WE COME BACK,

WE'LL BE ANSWER ARE YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

STAY WITH US.

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

SOME TIME TO ANSWER THE

E-MAIL QUESTIONS YOU'VE SENT

IT.

LET'S START WITH M.S., WHO

SAYS, "I'M A 16-YEAR-OLD

GIRL WHO HAS BEEN HAVING

OCCASIONAL CONFUSING

DREAMS.

WHEN I HAVE THESE DREAMS,

ONE IN PARTICULAR, I FEEL A

STRONG EVIL PRESENCE, AND I

WAKE FEELING LIKE THERE WAS

A MESSAGE, BUT I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS.

I'M A STRONG BELIEVER, AND

I'M CONFUSED WHY I'M HAVING

THESE DREAMS.

I'M ALSO CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT

I WATCH BEFORE GOING TO

SLEEP.

HOW CAN I TELL WHAT THESE

DREAMS MEAN.

EVEN IF YOU DON'T ANSWER

THIS ON THE SHOW, WOULD YOU

PLEASE POINT ME IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION."

Gordon: HERE IS WHAT I

THINK YOU NEED TO DO.

I THINK YOU NEED TO BIND THE

POWER OF THE ENEMY.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT MESSAGES

FROM SOME EVIL PRESENCE.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT.

YOU DON'T WANT IT ENTERING

YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS.

ALL HE IS GOING TO DO IS LIE

TO YOU.

SO BIND IT.

I WOULD RECOMMEND TONIGHT,

BEFORE YOU GO TO BED, JESUS,

I BIND ANY EVIL PRESENCE.

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR A

SINGLE WORD FROM THE ENEMY.

I JUST WANT TO HEAR FROM

YOU.

COULD YOU COME AND FILL MY

BREEM DREAMS WITH GOOD

THINGS.

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT, HE'LL

ANSWER IT.

TAKE THE AUTHORITY THAT YOU

HAVE AS A BELIEVER IN JESUS

CHRIST.

AND I BELIEVE IN THIS.

YOU'VE GOT TO DO IT OUT

LOUD.

AND WHEN YOU DO IT, IT'S

AFFECTIVE BECAUSE HE HAS

GIVEN YOU AUTHORITY TO TREAD

ON SERPENTS.

YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY.

HE IS UNDER YOUR FEET.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO

HIM.

Terry: MRS. "S"

SAYS, "CAN YOU PLEASE

EXPLAIN WHAT SEEK THEE

KINGDOM FIRST.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?"

Gordon: STOP THINKING

OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A

PHYSICAL PLACE.

THE REASON THAT JESUS SAID

THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN

YOU IS BECAUSE HE IS TALKING

ABOUT THE DOMINION OF GOD,

AND ARE YOU FOLLOWING GOD'S

RULES?

REALIZE THE LORD'S PRAYER

HAS THIS IN IT FOR OUR

EDUCATION.

YOU FIND IT IN MATTHEW 6:

10: "YOUR KINGDOM COME, YOUR

WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT

IS IN HEAVEN."

WHEN GOD'S KINGDOM IS

SPEARBLED I ESTABLISHED IN

YOUR HEART, WHAT THAT MEANS

IS HE HAS DOMINION, THAT HIS

WILL IS BEING DONE IN YOUR

LIFE.

YOU ARE NOT GOING OFF AND

DOING YOUR OWN THING.

YOU ARE FITTING IN THE

ORDINANCES OF THE KINGDOM,

WHICH IS TO LOVE GOD WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, AND LOVE

YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.

WHEN YOU FOLLOW THOSE RULES

AND HAVE HIS DOMINION AND

HIS PRESENCE WITH YOU, WELL

THEN YOU'RE HAVING HIS WILL

DONE IN YOUR LIFE.

AND YOU CAN SEEK HIS

GUIDANCE ON ANYTHING.

THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS.

SEEK THE KINGDOM FIRST, HIS

DOMINION FIRST, AND

EVERYTHING ELSE GETS ADDED

UNTO YOU.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 20: "MAY HE

GRANT YOU ACCORDING TO YOUR

HEART'S DESIRES AND FULFILL

ALL YOUR PURPOSE."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
