The 700 Club - Feb 21, 2014

Antoinette Tuff’s courageous confrontation with a school shooter saved lives. Plus, Darlene was losing her hair in bunches until God used The 700 Club for a miracle cure. Read Transcript


Gordon: FACE TO FACE

WITH A GUNMAN, THE WOMAN WHO

SAVED A SCHOOL BY STANDING

UP TO A SHOOTER.

AND THEN...THEY LIVED

THROUGH WORLD WAR II.

WE HAD NO IDEA THAT WE

WERE HERE UNANNOUNCED.

Gordon: AND SUFFERED

THROUGH THE HOLOCAUST.

WE REMEMBER THE JEWS

BEING LED BY GERMANS WITH

MACHINE GUNS.

Gordon: WE GIVE BACK TO

THE SURVIVORS --

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Gordon: -- ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THERE IS A POSSIBLE

BREAKTHROUGH FOR PEACE IN

UKRAINE TODAY.

THE PRESIDENT HAS ANNOUNCED

EREARLY ELECTIONS AND A NEW

COALITION GOVERNMENT.

Terry: THAT MOVE COMES

AFTER BATTLES BETWEEN POLICE

AND PROTESTORS KILLED MORE

THAN 70 PEOPLE AND INJURED

MORE THAN HUNDREDS MORE.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: A MAN SWEEPS

THE STREET WHILE PROTESTORS

STAND PEACEFULLY ON

INDEPENDENCE SQUARE IN

KIEV.

ONE PROTESTOR HOLDS A

CROSS.

IT IS A SHARP CONTRAST FROM

THE BLOODSHED THAT TOOK

PLACE ON THURSDAY.

THE VIOLENCE LEFT AT LEAST

70 MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSITION

AND THREE POLICE OFFICERS

DEAD.

MORE THAN 500 PROTESTORS

WERE INJURED, AND NEARLY 30

POLICE OFFICERS SUFFERED

GUNSHOT WOUNDS.

I BELIEVE THAT THE 20th

OF FEBRUARY WILL GO DOWN IN

THE UKRAINIAN HISTORY AS ONE

OF THE SADDEST DAYS EVER

SINCE INDEPENDENCE.

Reporter: THIS

PROTESTORS SAYS, WE WANT TO

SAY THEY NEED TO STOP ALL OF

THIS.

ENOUGH OF THE BLOOD.

HOW MUCH HAS BEEN SPILLED

ALREADY?

ONLY YESTERDAY MORE THAN 75

PEOPLE HAVE LOST LIVES.

FOR NOW, HIS CALL FOR PEACE

APPEARS TO HAVE COME TRUE.

AFTER ALL-NIGHT NEGOTIATIONS

WITH E.U. DIPLOMATS.

THE GOVERNMENT AGREED TO

FORM A NEW COALITION

GOVERNMENT IN 10 DAYS AND

HOLD NEW ELECTIONS BY THE

END OF THE YEAR.

THE DOCUMENT ALSO PROMISES

CONSTITUTIONAL REFORMS TO

SCALE BACK PRESIDENTIAL

POWERS, WHICH IS A KEY

DEMAND OF PROTESTORS.

STEVE WEBBER OF CBN UKRAINE

SAYS THE CHURCH HAS NOT BEEN

SITTING ON THE SIDELINES.

Reporter: THE CHURCH IS

RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE AND

ASKING FOR GOD'S PROTECTION,

FOR RESTRAINT, FOR GOD'S

PEACE.

THAT'S ONE LEVEL THE CHURCH

IS DOING.

THE OTHER ONE IS THAT MANY

OF THE CHURCHES HAVE OPENED

UP THAT ARE NEAR MIDONG TO

BE TEMPORARY HOSPITALS.

Reporter: DEMONSTRATORS

HAVE CAMPED FOR THREE MONTHS

ON INDEPENDENCE SQUARE.

THE PRESIDENT SPARKED THE

PROTESTS BY DOING AWAY WITH

A PACT WITH THE EUROPEAN

UNION, IN FAVOR OF CLOSE

TIES WITH RUSSIA.

BUT THE PEOPLE'S

DISSATISFACTION GOES DEEPER

THAN THAT.

WEBBER SAYS THEY'RE TIRED OF

BEING RULED BY LAWLESS AND

CORRUPT LEADERS.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: REPORTER GEORGE

THOMAS IS WITH US.

HE JUST RECENTLY RETURNED

FROM AN ASSIGNMENT IN

UKRAINE.

GEORGE, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF

THIS?

ARE THESE CONCESSIONS BY THE

PRESIDENT ENOUGH TO SATISFY

THE PROTESTORS?

George: I WAS TALKING

TO MY COLLEAGUE, WHO IS ON

INDEPENDENCE SQUARE THIS

MORNING, JUST A FEW MINUTES

AGO, AND SHE SAID SHE WAS

TALKING TO A PROTESTOR.

AND HE SAID IN ESSENCE, THIS

IS JUST ANOTHER PIECE OF

PAPER.

WE WILL NOT LEAVE THE

BARRICADES UNTIL VIKTOR

YANUKOVYCH STEPS DOWN.

ACCORDING TO THE PROTESTOR,

HE HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS.

DOZENS OF PEOPLE HAVE DIED

IN JUST THE LAST MONTH

ALONE.

IT DOES NOT SOLVE, GORDON,

THE DEEPER ISSUES THAT ARE

PLAGUING THE SOCIETY.

AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT IN

A FEW MINUTES --

Gordon: LET'S TALK

ABOUT IT NOW.

IT IS HARD FOR ME TO

UNDERSTAND HOW A TRADE

AGREEMENT WITH THE EUROPEAN

UNION LAUNCHES THIS KIND OF

ACTIVITY.

George: I THINK THAT

WAS THE INITIAL CRISIS, WHEN

IT STARTED IN NOVEMBER.

BUT THEN HOW THE GOVERNMENT

RESPONDED TO PROTESTORS

SAYING, LISTEN, WE WANT

CLOSER TIES WITH THE

EUROPEAN MOVEMENT.

THE MOMENT THAT VIKTOR

YANUKOVYCH RENEGED ON THIS

DEAL WITH CLOSER TIES WITH

THE EUROPEAN UNION,

DEMONSTRATORS WENT OUT ON

THE STREET SAYING, LOOK,

THIS IS NOT RIGHT, AND THE

POLICE BEAT THEM UP.

AND THIS SPARKED THE CRISIS

YOU'RE SEEING TODAY.

BECAUSE AT THE ROOT OF THIS

SITUATION IS THAT THEY ARE

TIRED, AFTER 1991, GAINING

INDEPENDENCE FROM THE FORMER

SOVIET UNION, AND THEY'RE

SAYING, WE DON'T WANT TO

CONTINUE THE POLICIES OF

MOSCOW, OF THE KREMLIN.

WE DON'T WANT TO SEE A LACK

OF HUMAN RIGHTS, A LACK OF

FREEDOM, THE ABILITY TO GO

OUT ON THE STREETS AND

DEMONSTRATE AND PROTEST

AGAINST OUR GOVERNMENT.

WE DON'T LIVE IN RUSSIA.

THIS IS UKRAINE.

SO AT THE BOTTOM, YES, HALF

THE COUNTRY IS DIVIDED.

THE EASTERN PART IS

PRO-RUSSIAN, AND THE WESTERN

SIDE THAT IS PRO-WEST.

IN ESSENCE, THEY WANT CLOSER

TIES.

BUT AT THE HEART, THIS IS

ALSO ABOUT CORRUPTION.

CORRUPT LEADERS --

CORRUPTION PER PERMEATES

THE ENTIRE SOCIETY.

Gordon: IF THEY WERE TO

KILL PEOPLE ON THE STREETS

OF MOSCOW, I THINK YOU WOULD

SEE THE SAME.

George: ABSOLUTELY.

THIS IS WHAT VLADIMIR PUTIN

IS SCARED TO DEATH OF.

HE HAS REFERRED TO THE TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF UKRAINIANS

ON THE STREETS AS

TERRORISTS.

HE SAYS, YOU'VE GOT TO GET A

HANDLE ON THESE GUYS.

WHY?

BECAUSE VLADIMIR PUTIN A

NUMBER OF YEARS AGO SAID THE

FOLLOWING: THE CLOSE

CAPTIONS OF THE SOVIET UNION

WAS THE GREATEST

GEOPOLITICAL CATASTROPHE OF

THE CENTURY.

HE LOOKS AT UKRAINE AS

LITTLE RUSSIA.

HE SEES NO BORDER BETWEEN

RUSSIA AND UKRAINE.

HE WANTS UKRAINE TO BE PART

OF THE ORBIT.

WHEN HE SAYS HIS INFLUENCE,

POLITICAL AS WELL AS

ECONOMIC -- A FEW WEEKS AGO,

HE GAVE THE UKRAINIANS A

$15 BILLION, WHAT I CALL A

BRIBE.

HE WANTS THEM IN HIS ORBIT.

THE UKRAINIANS ARE SAYING

NO.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY

DON'T HAVE AFFILIATION AND A

CONNECTION WITH RUSSIA.

THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO

CONTINUE THIS TUTELAGE OF

CORRUPT COURTS, CORRUPTION,

AND THIS BRUTALITY THAT THEY

SEE IN RUSSIA.

AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHY

PUTIN IS AFRAID.

BECAUSE IF THEY GUYS CAN GO

OUT ON THE STREETS, LOSE

LIFE -- LET ME TELL YOU

THIS.

70 SOMETHING PEOPLE -- I'M

NOT SURE OF THE EXACT

NUMBERS -- LOST THEIR

LIVES.

AND THEY'RE BACK ON THE

STREETS TODAY, MOTHERS,

CHILDREN, YOUNG AND OLD.

I SPENT DAYS WITH THEM ON

THE BARRICADES, ON THE FRONT

LINE.

THEY'RE ORDINARY FOLKS,

DOCTORS, ENGINEERS,

CARPENTERS, TEACHERS -- I

SAW ELDERLY MOTHERS IN THEIR

70s AND 80s.

OUR VIEWERS MAY BE A LITTLE

UPSET ABOUT THAT, BUT THEY

WERE OUT THERE WITH TRAYS OF

FOOD AND HOT CUPS OF TEA.

THEY'RE GIVING THE

PROTESTORS FOOD AND REST.

THESE ARE ORDINARY FOLKS.

Gordon: WHAT ARE THE

CHURCHES DOING IN THE MIDDLE

OF ALL OF THIS?

George: HERE IS A

PICTURE OF A WOMAN HANDING

OUT PSALM 91 TO THE

DEMONSTRATORS.

PEOPLE ARE PRAYING.

THE CHURCH SEES THIS AS AN

INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY.

WE HAVE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE

THAT IN THE MIDST OF

POLITICAL REVOLUTIONS,

WHETHER IT IS TIANANMEN

SQUARE OR THE FORMER SOVIET

UNION, IN THE MIDST OF THESE

INCREDIBLE POLITICAL

CHANGES, PEOPLE ARE LOOKING

FOR HOPE.

THEY THINK MAYBE IT IS

POLITICS, BUT IN THE END

THEY'RE SEARCHING, CAN

SOMETHING GIVE ME HOPE, TO

GIVE ME THE PEACE THAT I'M

SO LONGING FOR IN MY

COUNTRY.

Gordon: YOU'RE GOING

BACK?

George: I AM.

IN A FEW HOURS.

Gordon: YOU SOUND

REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THAT.

George: I AM.

DO YOU WANT ME TO BE A

PROTESTOR FOR CBN NEWS?

NO, LISTEN, THIS IS MY HEART

CRY.

I SPENT DAYS ON THE FRONT

LINES, AND I WANT TO GO AND

TELL THE STORY OF WHAT THE

CHURCH IS DOING.

TODAY I READ A REPORT --

PEOPLE ARE TELLING ME THAT

CHRISTIAN DOCTORS AND NURSES

ARE IN CHURCHES.

CHURCHES HAVE TURNED INTO

HELICOPTERS FO HELICOPTERS

FO HOSPITALS.

IN THE HISTORY OF THIS

NATION, THE CHURCH -- STEVE

WEBBER THERE IN UKRAINE, 20

YEARS THEY'VE BEEN

MINISTERING THE GOSPEL, AND

HE SAYS WE HAVE TO PRAY FOR

RIGHTEOUS LEADERS WHO DON'T

HAVE THEIR OWN PERSONAL

AGENDA AT STAKE, BUT THEY

WANT THE AGENDA OF THE

PEOPLE TO MOVE FORWARD.

Gordon: THAT'S A PRAYER

FOR ALL OF US.

THAT'S A PRAYER FOR THE

PEACE OF UKRAINE AND THE

PEOPLE OF UKRAINE.

THERE ARE LOTS OF CHRISTIANS

ON BOTH SIDES HERE, AND WE

NEED TO PRAY THAT THERE

WOULD BE PEACE.

HERE AT HOME, THERE IS A

GROWING CONCERN THAT BIG

BROTHER MAY SOON SHOW UP IN

THE NEWSROOM.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: CONSERVATIVES

AND SOME MEDIA ANALYSTS ARE

SPEAKING OUT AGAINST A PLAN

FROM THE FEDERAL

COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

THEY SAY COULD LEAD TO BIG

BROTHER MONITORING THE

MEDIA.

THE F.C.C. PLANS TO

INVESTIGATE HOW NEWSROOMS

DECIDE WHICH STORIES TO

REPORT.

CRITICS SAY THIS COULD LEAD

TO GOVERNMENT REGULATION,

AND CONTROL OF NEW STORIES.

THE F.C.C. CHAIRMAN SAYS THE

COMMISSION DOES NOT PLAN TO

RESTRICT FREEDOM OF THE

PRESS.

A REPUBLICAN COMMISSIONER ON

THE F.C.C. FIRST BROUGHT THE

PLAN TO LIGHT.

YOU CAN READ HIS COLUMN BY

GOING TO CBNNEWS.COM.

AUSTRALIAN OFFICIALS SAY

THEY HAVE NO DETAILS OF THE

LOCATION OR CONDITION OF THE

75-YEAR-OLD MISSIONARY

ARRESTED IN NORTH KOREA.

POLICE TOOK JOHN SHORT INTO

CUSTODY MONDAY MORNING.

AND NO ONE HAS SEEN HIM

SENSE.

HE IS ACCUSED OF HANDING OUT

CHRISTIAN LITERATURE IN THE

COMMUNIST COMPANY.

JEFF KING SAYS SHORT'S

ARREST MAY HAVE MORE TO DO

WITH A RECENT U.N. REPORT,

ACCUSING NORTH KOREA OF

COMMITTING CRIMES AGAINST

HUMANITY.

THE MAN WHO HEADED UP THE

COMMISSION IS AUSTRALIAN, HE

IS AN AUSTRALIAN JUDGE.

WE THINK THIS IS PUNISHMENT

AND IT IS A BARGAINING CHIP,

THAT IS CONJECTURE, BUT IT

CERTAINLY LOOKS INTERESTING

AND IT LOOKS LIKE AN

OVERBEARING RESPONSE TO A

SMALL OFFENSE.

Reporter: CHURCHES AND

RELIGIOUS GROUPS HAVE

ALREADY BOUGHT ALMOST A HALF

MILLION TICKETS TO THE FILM

"SON OF GOD."

IT PRODUCED BY MARK BURNETT

AND ROMA DOWNEY.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER SAYS

THAT SOME GROUPS HAVE

ALREADY RENTED THEATERS, AND

EVEN ENTIRE MULTIPLEX.

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BOUGHT

OUT A MULTI-PLECS,

MULTIPLEX, WHERE THE MOVIE

WILL BE SHOWING ON ALL 14

SCREENS NEXT FRIDAY.

WE'LL HAVE A SPECIAL REPORT

ON THE MOVIE ON NEXT

FRIDAY'S "700 CLUB."

COMPUTERIZED TRAFFIC

MONITORING SYSTEMS WILL SOON

BE ABLE TO WATCH VIRTUALLY

EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE IN BIG

CITIES.

FAST COMPANY REPORTS THAT

CISCO HAS ANNOUNCED AN

AGREEMENT WITH A.G.T. TO

DEVELOP THE HIGH TRACK

SYSTEMS FOR CITIES AROUND

THE WORLD.

IT WILL INCLUDE SENSORS IN

PAVEMENT, THE ABILITY TO

READ LICENSE PLATES, AND

EVEN FEEDING INFORMATION NO

SOCIAL MEDIA.

THE IDEA IS TO QUICKLY

IDENTIFY AND CONTROL TRAFFIC

PROBLEMS.

SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND THE

SYSTEM A BIT CREEPY, BUT IT

IS PART OF A MUCH LARGER

TREND IN WHICH CITY AND

FEDERAL AGENCIES USE SENSORS

TO MONITOR THE SMALLEST

ASPECTS OF EVERY DAY URBAN

LIFE.

IT IS THE SITUATION WE'VE

BEEN REPORTING, BALANCING

PRIVACY CONCERNS AGAINST

CONVENIENCE.

Gordon: I'M ONE OF THE

ONES WHO THINK THIS IS A

LITTLE CREEPY.

I'M FINE WITH A TRAFFIC

MONITORING SYSTEM TO HELP

ROAD PLANNERS, HELP POLICE

CLEAR U UP ACCIDENTS, THOSE

KIND OF THINGS.

ALL OF THAT IS WONDERFUL.

BUT WHEN YOU START TYING THE

DATA DOWN TO AN INDIVIDUAL

LICENSE PLATE AND AN

INDIVIDUAL CAR, AND THE

CAPACITY TO STORE THAT

INFORMATION LITERALLY

FOREVER, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

ABLE TO TRACK THE MOVEMENT

OF EVERY AMERICAN FROM NOW

ON.

AND I FIND THAT VERY

DISTURBING.

WE CAN ALL EMBRACE AN

INTERNET OF THINGS, BUT

START UNDERSTANDING THAT

WHEN THE ITEMS OF YOUR

HOUSEHOLD START TALKING TO

THE INTERNET AND THE

GOVERNMENT IS LISTENING, DO

YOU REALLY WANT THE N.S.A.

KNOWING THAT THE MILK IN

YOUR REFRIGERATOR IS GETTING

READY TO EXPIRE.

THAT'S THE KIND OF DETAIL

THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS GOING

TO HAVE ON ALL OF US.

AND FOR JUST PRIVACY

CONCERNS, I DON'T WANT THE

GOVERNMENT KNOWING THAT, THE

FREEDOM TO HAVE SPOILED

MILK, IF YOU WILL.

WHY ARE WE ALLOWING THIS

KIND OF THING, AND NO ONE

SEEMS TO BE PROTESTING.

NOBODY SEEMS TO BE REALLY

GETTING EXCITED ABOUT WHY

THE N.S.A. IS DOING.

WE'RE ALL BUYING THE LIE

THAT SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER THIS

IS STOPPING TERRORISM.

AND WE'VE ALREADY HAD THE

REPORT, ALL OF THE N.S.A.

META DATA COLLECTION OF ALL

OF OUR PHONE RECORDS, ALL

OUR E-MAILS, ALL OF OUR TEXT

MESSAGES HASN'T LED TO A

SINGLE CASE OF STOPPING

TERRORISM.

THAT OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH FOR

ALL OF US TO WAKE UP AND SAY

THIS NEEDS TO STOP.

Terry: THEY'RE

MONITORING THE WRONG CROWD.

COMING UP LATER, SHE TALKED

DOWN A GUNMAN WITH AN AK-47

AND PROTECTED THE LIVES OF A

SCHOOL FULL OF CHILDREN.

MEET ANTOINETTE TOUGH.

PLUS, ALONG WITH HIS

SCALPEL, THIS SURGEON CALLS

FOR PRAYER.

I SEE MYSELF AS AN

INSTRUMENT IN THE HAND OF

GOD.

SO I'M THE ONE DOING THE

OPERATION, BUT HE IS THE ONE

GUIDING ME.

Terry: SURGEONS WHO

PRAY BEFORE YOU GO UNDER THE

KNIFE, AFTER THIS.

Gordon: IF YOU WERE

FACING AN OPERATION, YOU'D

NORMALLY DEPEND ON YOUR

DOCTOR FOR HIS SURGICAL

SKILLS.

AND YOU WOULD LOOK TO YOUR

PASTOR AND CHAPLAIN FOR

PRAYER.

NOW A GROWING NUMBER OF

SURGEONS ARE ALSO PRAYING

WITH THEIR PATIENTS BEFORE

THEY OPERATE.

PAUL STRAND HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: IT WOULD BE

AGAINST HIS OATH IF DALLAS

HEART SURGEON MARK POOLE

DIDN'T STUDY EVERY PATIENT'S

CASE BEFORE OPERATING.

BUT HE FEELS IT IS AGAINST

HIS CALLING IF HE DOESN'T AT

LEAST OFFER TO PRAY WITH

THEM.

HE IS THE ONE WHO

CONTROLS LIFE AND DEATH.

I SEE MYSELF AS AN

INSTRUMENT IN THE HAND OF

GOD.

I'M THE ONE DOING THE

OPERATION, BUT HE IS THE ONE

GUIDING ME.

WE KNOW ABOUT YOUR LOVE

BECAUSE YOU SENT YOUR SON.

AND WE KNOW ABOUT YOUR POWER

BECAUSE YOU RAISED HIM FROM

THE DEAD.

Reporter: WHEN FOLKS

ARE FACING MEDICAL

EMERGENCIES, SOME PEOPLE

WOULD SAY THAT IS THE WRONG

TIME TO PRESSURE THEM ABOUT

SPIRITUAL MATTERS.

BUT MOST PATIENTS SAY IT

ACTUALLY TAKES MUCH OF THE

PRESSURE OFF, TO BRING GOD

AND PRAYER INTO THEIR

SITUATIONS AND THEY

APPRECIATE IT.

TAKE THE CASE OF TOM PRIOR.

HIS RISK OF DYING WAS

PROBABLY 90% IF HE HAD TO

SURGERY.

EVEN IF YOU DO AN EMERGENCY

SURGERY, THE

RISK OF DYING

IS ABOUT

30%.

Reporter:

WHEN POOLE

BROUGHT UP

PRAYING?

I WAS SLIGHTLY TAKEN

ABACK FOR JUST A

SECOND, AND

THEN

REALIZING MY

CONDITION

AND THE THINGS THAT WERE

GOING ON, I THOUGHT IT WAS A

GOOD IDEA.

Reporter: PRIOR SAID

POOLE'S PRAYERS CALMED AND

RELAXED HIM.

ANOTHER PRAYER SURGEON SAYS

HE UNDERSTANDS A DOCTOR

OFFERING TO PRAY COULD MAKE

SOME PATIENTS UNCOMFORTABLE

AND WORRIED THEY CAN'T

REFUSE THIS POWERFUL

PERSON.

TO SOME DEGREE, IT CAN BE

LIKE A TEACHER AND A

STUDENT, AND YOU HAVE TO

MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT

OVERSTEPPING YOUR BOUNDARIES

OR BEING INAPPROPRIATE IN

THAT RELATIONSHIP.

Reporter: THE CRITICS

WOULD SAY, WELL, THERE IS A

POWER DIFFERENTIAL.

THIS POOR PATIENT IS THERE

HELPLESS, AND THEY FEEL IF

YOU SAY NO YOU MIGHT NOT DO

YOUR BEST DURING THE

SURGERY.

I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT

TO BE SENSITIVE TO THE FACT

THAT WILL ARE PATIENTS,

NUMBER ONE, WHO MAY NOT BE

CHRISTIAN, AND, NUMBER TWO,

WHO MAY NOT BELIEVE IN GOD

AT ALLMENT.

Reporter: STILL, HE

SAYS HE WITNESSED GOD DO SO

MUCH IN HIS HOSPITAL, YOU

CAN'T HELP BUT BELIEVE.

I SEE THE HAND OF GOD

EVERY DAY.

Reporter: POOLE, TOO,

HAS SEEN MIRACLES.

FOR INSTANCE, WITH A PATIENT

WHO'S HEART JUST STOPPED ONE

DAY.

I OPENED HIS CHEST UP,

AND I WAS SQUEEZING HIS

HEART, AND NOTHING WAS

HAPPENING.

I PRAYED TO GOD, PLEASE HELP

THIS MAN.

AND HIS HEART JUST STARTED

UP.

HIS LIFE WAS SAVED AND HE IS

DOING GREAT.

I HAVE HAD ONE PATIENT

THAT TURNED ME DOWN.

I WAS THERE ABOUT TO START

THE SURGERY.

I SAID, WOULD YOU MIND IF I

SAY A PRAYER WITH YOU.

AND HE SAID, I PREFER NOT.

Reporter: STILL, BOTH

THEIR SPIRITUAL WORK GETS

ALMOST 100% SUPPORT FROM

THEIR PATIENTS.

OFTENTIMES THEY'LL SAY,

THAT PRAYER MEANT THE WORLD

TO US.

Reporter: THAT'S HOW

RUSSELL FELT AFTER HE HAD A

HEART ATTACK BUT WAITED

ABOUT THREE WEEKS BEFORE

GOING TO THE HOSPITALMENT.

> HOSPITAL.

WHICH IS NOT THE DOCTOR'S

ADVICE.

Reporter: HE PRAYED.

IT WAS A HUGE RELIEF.

WHEN HE ASKED THAT, IT TOOK

THE WORLD OF PRESSURE OFF MY

CHEST.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

SPOKE WITH JIMMY MAYFIELD

BEFORE POOLE REPLACED A

VALVE IN THE 70-YEAR-OLD'S

HEART.

IT MADE ME FEEL BETTER

THAT THE GUY WHO IS GOING TO

MAKE THE DECISIONS IN THERE

HAS THE LORD WITH HIM.

HE HAS THAT PEACE.

WE PRAY THAT THIS

OPERATION WOULD GO

SMOOTHLY.

Reporter: JAY SAYS SOME

PEOPLE MAY THINK THEY

WOULDN'T WANT THESE TYPE OF

PRAYERS, BUT THEY PROBABLY

HAVEN'T FACED A KILLER

DISEASE.

AT THE MOMENT YOU FIND

OUT YOU HAVE A HORRIBLE

DISEASE, CANCER, WHATEVER, I

DON'T CARE WHAT YOU BELIEVE

IN, IF YOU ACTIVELY DON'T

BELIEVE IN GOD, YOU BELIEVE

IN GOD AT THAT MOMENT.

I THINK THEY WOULD BE

SURPRISED HOW MANY OF THEIR

PATIENTS WOULD APPRECIATE IF

THEY DID DO IT.

Reporter: 1

THESSALONIANS SAYS, "PRAYER

WITHOUT SEIZING."

AND THEY SAY SINCE THEY KNOW

HIM, IT IS A PRETTY SMART

DECISION TO BRING IT INTO

THEIR SURGERIES.

PAUL STRAND REPORTING FROM

DALLAS, TEXAS.

Gordon: MOST DOCTORS

ARE HUMBLE ENOUGH TO ADMIT,

DESPITE ALL THEIR SKILL --

AND THEY CAN DO SOME AMAZING

THINGS -- BUT WHEN IT COMES

TO HEALING, THEY ALL KNOW

THEY FINISH THEIR WORK AND

THEN THE HEALER COMES IN.

SO I WOULD ENCOURAGE THIS.

THIS IS SOMETHING GOOD.

TERRY, IT IS THE OLD ADAGE

THERE IS NO ATHEISTS IN FOX

HOLES.

WHEN YOU HAVE A LIFE AND

DEATH SITUATION, YOU'RE NOW

ASKING FOR HELP.

Terry: I WAS AT A

DOCTOR RECENTLY, NOT HAVING

SURGERY, A PROCEDURE THAT

REQUIRED GOING UNDER, AND

THIS NURSE CAME ALONGSIDE

THE GURNEY AND SAID, WOULD

YOU LIKE ME TO PRAY FOR YOU

BEFORE YOU GO IN?

AND I SAID, OH, YEAH.

SHE WAS WONDERFUL.

IT WAS VERY PEACE-GIVING.

IT WAS WONDERFUL.

UP NEXT, MEET THE WOMAN WHO

ONCE HEARD THESE WORDS,

WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE

TODAY.

ANTOINETTE TUFF TELLS HOW

SHOOTER TO GIVE UP HIS

WEAPONS, AFTER THIS.

Terry: ON

AUGUST 20th, 2013,

ANTOINETTE TUFF WAS STANDING

IN THE OFFICE OF THE

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WHERE SHE

WORKED.

WITH A LOADED AK-47

AUTOMATIC ASSAULT RIFLE

POINTED AT HER HEAD, SHE

NEVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED

WHAT WAS IN STORE FOR HER

THAT DAY, YET AT THE SAME

TIME, SHE FELT AS IF SHE HAD

BEEN PREPARING FOR IT ALL

HER LIFE.

Reporter: THE TRAFFIC

SHOOTING AT SANDY HOOK

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN

DECEMBER 2013 SHOCKED AND

HORRIFIED THE COUNTRY.

THEN LESS THAN A YEAR LATER,

A SIMILAR SCENE STARTED TO

UNFOLD WHEN A GUNMAN, ARMED

WITH AN AK-47 ASSAULT RIFLE

AND 500 ROUNDS OF

AMMUNITION, WALKED INTO

McNEAR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

IN GEORGIA.

BUT IN THE END, HE LAID DOWN

HIS WEAPONS AND SURRENDERED

TO POLICE, ALL BECAUSE OF

ONE WOMAN'S COURAGE.

HER NAME IS ANTOINETTE TUFF,

THE SCHOOL BOOKKEEPER.

IN HER BOOK, "PREPARED FOR

PURPOSE," ANTOINETTE TALKS

ABOUT HER TERRIFYING

ENCOUNTER AND HOW SHE

BELIEVES GOD HAD BEEN

PREPARING HER FOR THAT

MOMENT HER ENTIRE LIFE.

Terry: POLICE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," THE LADY

WHO SAVED AN ATLANTA SCHOOL

UNDER SIEGE.

ANTOINETTE TUFF, IT IS A

PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU HERE.

THANK YOU.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE

HERE.

Terry: TALK A LITTLE

ABOUT THE STORY OF EXACTLY

WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY AT

THE SCHOOL.

WELL, I GOT TO SCHOOL,

JUST LIKE ANY OTHER NORMAL

DAY.

I DIDN'T KNOW DURING MY

PRAYER TIME DID GOD TELL ME

ANYTHING THAT MORNING WHAT I

WAS GOING TO FACE LATER ON

THAT AFTERNOON.

I WAS THERE TO RELIEVE THE

SECRETARY, BECAUSE MY

PRINCIPAL HAD ASKED ME HOURS

BEFORE IF I WOULD RELIEVE

HER.

I GET THIS DEVASTATING

CALL.

Terry: AND THE CALL

WAS?

THE DEVASTATING CALL WAS

THAT I ACTUALLY HAD TO COME

UP WITH $14,000 OR THEY WA

WERE GOING TO REPOSSESS MY

CAR.

Terry: AND YOU'RE A

SINGLE MOM AT THIS POINT,

WITH TWO CHILDREN, WORKING

AT THE SCHOOL, RIGHT?

YES.

AND NOW I'M SITTING IN MY

OFFICE, BALLING, CRYING, AND

I HAD NOW SHUT THE DOOR IN

MY OFFICE, LIKE, GOD, WHAT

AM I GOING TO DO.

Terry: SO IT'S NOT LIKE

YOU'RE AT AN EMOTIONAL HIGH

POINT IN YOUR LIFE.

NO.

Terry: YOU NOW GO TO

RELIEVE THE PERSON IN THE

OFFICE AND WHAT HAPPENS?

AND NOW I'M SITTING IN

THE OFFICE AND INCOMES

MICHAEL HILL, ALL DRESSED IN

BLACK WITH AN AK-47.

AT FIRST I'M THINKING THIS

IS A JOKE.

AND HE SAYS, THIS IS NOT A

JOKE; WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE

TODAY.

Terry: WHAT WENT

THROUGH YOUR MIND AT THAT

MOMENT?

TERROR, OVERWHELMING,

AND, GOD, WHAT AM I GOING TO

DO NOW?

Terry: AND WHAT DID GOD

SAY TO YOU?

IF YOU NEVER TALKED TO

GOD BEFORE, NOW YOU'RE

ACTUALLY HAVING A

CONVERSATION.

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY?

BECAUSE I KNOW EVERY WORD

OUT OF THAT MOUTH COULD BE

LIFE OR DEATH, NOT JUST FOR

ME, BUT THERE ARE OVER 870

KIDS IN THE SCHOOL AND

PARENTS AND STAFF MEMBERS.

SO I KNOW IT IS A VERY

IMPORTANT MOMENT AT THAT

TIME.

Terry: THERE WAS

SOMEONE ELSE IN THE OFFICE,

AND HE LET HER GO, WENT DOWN

THE HALL.

YOU HAD ANOTHER TEACHER WHO

CAME AT ONE POINT AND THAT

MAN IS ALLOWED TO LEAVE.

YOU ARE ALONE WITH THIS GUY,

ALONE, AND TRYING TO KEEP

YOUR COOL.

HOW DID YOU REMAIN CALM,

COOL, AND COLLECTED?

I ACTUALLY COMMUNICATED

WITH GOD, TO ASK HIM WHAT TO

SAY AND TO MAKE SURE I

FOLLOWED HIS INSTRUCTIONS AS

HE WAS USING ME TO BE HIS

VESSEL THAT DAY.

Terry: YOU FOLLOWED,

ALSO, THE DIRECTIONS OF THE

MICHAEL HILL.

THERE WERE A COUPLE OF TIMES

HE TOLD YOU TO CALL SOMEONE

OR TO MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT

TO THE SCHOOL.

YOU HAD 9-1-1 ON THE PHONE.

HE DIDN'T REALIZE YOU HAD

THEM ON AS LONG AS YOU DID,

RIGHT?

HE TOLD ME TO HANG UP THE

TELEPHONE.

SO I PUT THE PHONE ON THE

OTHER SIDE SO HE COULDN'T

SEE IT, AND I WAS

COMMUNICATING WITH THE 9-1-1

OPERATOR, TO ALLOW HER TO

KNOW WHAT WAS HE TELLING ME

TO DO AND WHAT WAS HE

SAYING, SO THEY COULD HAVE

EARS AND EYES ON THE SCENE

WITHOUT HIM KNOWING THAT

THEY DID.

Terry: MICHAEL WAS IN A

LOT OF ANGST, AND IT WAS SO

TOUCHED BY THE FACT THAT YOU

COULD CONNECT WITH HIM

EMOTIONALLY, THAT YOU FELT

COMPASSION IN THE MIDST OF

THAT.

WHY DO YOU THINK THAT

HAPPENED?

I KNEW THAT PAIN.

I JUST HAD THAT PAIN SEVERAL

MONTHS MYSELF, WHEN MY

HUSBAND OF 33 YEARS, THE MAN

I HAD BEEN WITH SINCE I WAS

13 YEARS OLD, HAD NOW TOLD

ME HE WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR,

AND WE WERE NO LONGER GOING

TO BE TOGETHER.

SO I KNEW THAT PAIN.

I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE FELT

WHEN SOMEONE ELSE CAME INTO

MY LIFE AND DESTROYED MY

FAMILY.

SO I KNEW HOW TO HAVE

COMPASSION AND LOVE FOR

HIM.

Terry: AND NOT ONLY ARE

YOU A SINGLE MOM AT THAT

STAGE OF YOUR LIFE, BUT YOU

ALSO HAVE A SON -- A VERY

SPECIAL SON, BUT WITH SOME

PRETTY SERIOUS NEEDS.

YES.

MY SON IS MULTIPLY

DISABLED, AND I NEED TO MAKE

SURE I DO WHAT I NEED TO DO

FOR MY SON, AND ALSO FOR MY

DAUGHTER, AND SO IT IS A

VERY TRYING TIME IN MY

LIFE.

Terry: AND THEN YOU GET

A CALL THAT YOU'RE MIGHT

LOSE YOUR HOUSE.

YOU SAID IN SOME WAYS GOD

HAS BEEN PREPARING YOU FOR

THIS ALL OF YOUR LIFE.

YOU DID HAVE TIME WITH THE

LORD AT THE START OF YOUR

DAY, LIKE YOU ALWAYS DO.

YES.

I KNOW TODAY THAT GOD

ACTUALLY PREPARED ME FOR A

PURPOSE.

THAT WAS ONE REASON I WANTED

TO WRITE MY BOOK, TO ALLOW

PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT I WAS AN

ORDINARY WOMAN, JUST LIKE

ANYBODY ELSE.

I GOT UP AND SPENT TIME WITH

GOD, BUT GOD PREPARED ME FOR

THAT PURPOSE WHEN I WAS

YOUNGER, THROUGH ABANDONMENT

ISSUES AND EVERYTHING.

IT WAS JUST MY NUMBER BEING

CALLED FOR HIM TO BE ABLE TO

USE ME.

Terry: TALK A LITTLE

BIT ABOUT HOW THINGS

ACTUALLY FINALLY CONCLUDED

AT THE SCHOOL.

BECAUSE YOU ACTUALLY -- WHEN

MICHAEL SAID TO YOU, I AM

GOING TO DIE, THIS IS THE

LAST DAY OF MY LIFE.

YOU WERE ABLE TO SAY TO HIM,

NO, YOU'RE NOT.

IT'S GOING TO GET BETTER.

THAT'S BECAUSE YOU HAD SEEN

GOD WORK IN YOUR LIFE.

HE ACTUALLY LAID DOWN ON THE

FLOOR.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

HE TRIED TO LAY DOWN AND

COMMIT SUICIDE.

AND I SAID, NOPE, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO HAVE THAT.

EVERYBODY IS GOING TO GET

OUT OF HERE ALIVE TODAY.

HE WOUND UP PUTTING ALL OF

THE AMMUNITIONS OUT OF HIS

POCKET, LAID DOWN PROS

PROSTRAIT BEFORE THE LORD,

AND WITH HIS HANDS BEHIND

HIS BACK AND ALLOWED THE

POLICE TO GET HIM.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

HE HAD ENOUGH AMMUNITION TO

HAVE KILLED EVERYONE IN

THERE.

AND GOD INTERVENED.

YES.

Terry: A LOT OF TIMES

WE HAVE PEOPLE ASK US, HOW

DO I HANDLE THAT?

AND THE COMMON THREAD I REED

IN YOUR BOOK, NO MATTER HOW

MUCH HARDSHIP YOU WENT

THROUGH, YOU STAYED WITH

GOD.

YOU WERE IN THE WORD.

YOU PRAYED WITH GOD AT NIGHT

AND IN THE MORNING.

IS THAT WHAT MADE A

DIFFERENCE?

YES.

I KNOW FROM ALL OF THAT IT

MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

BECAUSE I NOW STARTED TO

HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD.

IT WAS NOT JUST GOING TO

CHURCH ON SUNDAY OR GOING TO

CHURCH ON WEDNESDAY, BUT IT

WAS DEDICATING MY LIFE,

GIVING GOD WHAT I GAVE MY

HUSBAND FOR 23 YEARS.

AND LEARNING HOW TO, NO

MATTER WHAT, LOVE GOD JUST

LIKE I LOVED HIM, AND EVEN

MORE.

Terry: SO WHERE ARE YOU

AT TODAY?

YOU'RE AN AUTHOR?

YES.

I AM NOW GOING NATIONALLY

AND INTERNATIONALLY

SPEAKING, ALLOWING OTHERS TO

BE PREPARED FOR THEIR

PURPOSE.

PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD DONATED TO MY FUND.

WE STARTED A NON-PROFIT,

WHICH IS "KIDS ON THE MOVE

FOR SUCCESS."

AND WE JUST GAVE AWAY OUR

FIRST SCHOLARSHIP A FEW

WEEKS AGO FOR A STUDENT TO

GO TO COLLEGE.

IT IS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

TO BE ABLE TO HELP OTHERS,

TO REALIZE THEY ARE, TOO,

PREPARED FOR THE PURPOSE, NO

MATTER WHAT AGE YOU ARE.

Terry: AND IT IS SO

MUCH BIGGER THAN YOU CAN

IMAGINE OR ASK FOR.

RIGHT.

WHEN GOD SAYS HE WILL OPEN

UP THE WINDOWS AND POUR OUT

YOU A BLESSING, YOU HAVE

ROOM ENOUGH TO ACCEPT IT.

Terry: ANTOINETTE'S

BOOK IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

IT IS A VERY INTERESTING

STORY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE

WITH YOU TODAY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR TALKS

ABOUT HER INCREDIBLE STORY

OF HIDING IN A BASEMENT.

WE HAVE NO VENTILATION.

WE HAVE NO WINDOWS AND NO

DOORS.

WE WERE IN TOTAL DARKNESS.

WE WERE AFRAID TO EVEN LIGHT

A MATCH OR WHISPER A WORD.

Terry: MEET HER AND

OTHERS LIKE HER WHO NOW LIVE

IN ISRAEL.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

ANOTHER DEMOCRATIC

ATTORNEY-GENERAL HAS

ANNOUNCED SHE WILL NOT

DEFEND A STATE BAN ON GAY

MARRIAGE.

THIS TIME IT IS OREGON'S

ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

DEMOCRATIC ATTORNEY-GENERALS

IN AT LEAST FIVE OTHER

STATES HAVE TAKEN THE SAME

STEP, EVEN THOUGH IT IS

THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO

DEFEND STATE LAWS IN COURT.

ROSENBLOOM SAYS OREGON'S BAN

CANNOT WITHSTAND A FEDERAL

CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE, SO

SHE IS NOT GOING TO TRY.

SHE ARGUED IT WAS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL TO DENY

GAYS THE RIGHT TO MARRY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

SUPPORTING THE WORK AGAINST

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN NEPAL.

O.B. IS WORKING WITH A

NEPALI RESCUE PROJECT IN

SUPPORTING A RESCUE CENTER

BETWEEN NEPAL.

THE GIRLS ARE TAKEN TO SAFE

HOMES, WHERE THEY RECEIVE

COUNSELLING AND EVEN SKILLS

TRAINING THEM TO HELP THEM

REINTEGRATE INTO THEIR

COMMUNITIES.

MANY YOUNG GIRLS ARE LURED

IN BY THE PROMISE OF WORK.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

ALSO WORKING IN VILLAGES,

OFFERING TRAINING AND VITAL

RESOURCES.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING TO THEIR WEBSITE AT

ob.org, AND GORDON AND

TERRY WILL BE BACK WITH MORE

OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: NEARLY 250,000

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS LIVE IN

ISRAEL TODAY.

MOST OF THEM ARE FROM THE

FORMER SOVIET UNION.

AND ALMOST HALF LIVE BELOW

THE POVERTY LINE.

HERE IS A LOOK AT HOW CBN

ISRAEL IS BRINGING HELP TO

THESE SURVIVORS.

LUCY WAS 18 YEARS OLD WHEN

THE NAZIS INVADED THE SOVIET

UNION.

THE WAR BEGAN IN 1941,

JUST AFTER I FINISHED HIGH

SCHOOL.

THEY CELEBRATED MY

GRADUATION WITH GOWNS, AND

WE LAUGHED AND SANG, AND

LATER WE WALKED ALONG THE

SEA SHORE.

WE HAD NO IDEA THAT TOMORROW

WE WILL HEAR AN ANNOUNCEMENT

THAT THE WAR HAD STARTED.

THEN THE BOMBINGS BEGAN.

ON OCTOBER 17 WE SAW COLUMNS

OF JEWS BEING LED BY GERMANS

WITH MACHINE GUNS.

WE ASKED THEM, WHERE ARE

THEY TAKING US?

THEY ANSWERED US, THEY DON'T

KNOW.

Gordon: THAT DAY 80% OF

THE JEWS IN ODESSA WERE

MURDERED BY THE NAZIS.

LUCY AND HER FAMILY ESCAPED

THE MASSACRE, ONLY TO FACE A

NEW ROUND OF ARRESTS.

THERE WAS AN ORDER THAT

ALL JEWISH PEOPLE MUST LEAVE

THEIR HOUSES WITH ALL OF

THEIR POSSESSIONS.

WE WERE TOLD THAT ANYONE WHO

DID NOT LEAVE IN TWO DAYS

WOULD BE EXECUTED.

MY SISTER SAID, WHY SHOULD

WE GO TO A GHETTO.

WE CAN HIDE IN THE

BASEMENT.

NO ONE KNEW WE HAD THE

SHELTER, SO NO ONE COULD

FIND US.

WE HAD NO VENTILATION, NO

WINDOWS, AND NO DOORS.

WE LIVED IN HORRIBLE

CONDITIONS.

THE FLOORS WERE ALSO WET,

AND THERE WAS MOLD ON THE

WALLS.

WE WERE IN TOTAL DARKNESS.

WE WERE AFRAID TO EVEN LIGHT

A MATCH OR TO WHISPER A

WORD.

Gordon: AT NIGHT

NEIGHBORS BROUGHT THEM FOOD

IN A BUCKET, LOWERED THROUGH

A HOLE IN THE FLOOR.

WE ATE JUST ONCE A DAY, A

DISH MADE OUT OF CORN MEAL.

SOMETIMES WE ADDED MORE

WATER AND MADE SOUP.

WE THOUGHT WE WOULD ONLY BE

THERE FOR TWO WEEKS, AND

THAT THEY WOULD COME

LIBERATE US.

WE ENDED UP LIVING IN THAT

BASEMENT FOR TWO YEARS AND

THREE MONTHS.

Gordon: THOSE TWO YEARS

AFFECTED LUCY'S HEALTH FOR

THE REST OF HER LIFE.

AFTER I CAME OUT OF THE

BASEMENT, I WAS VERY ILL.

WHEN I GOT AN X-RAY, I FOUND

OUT I HAD OSTEOPOROSIS AND

TWO OTHER BONE DISEASES.

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE, I

HAVE HAD PAIN ALL OVER MY

BODY.

TO THIS DAY I CANNOT MOVE MY

HANDS FREELY.

SOMETIMES IT HURTS WHEN I

EVEN JUST MOVE MY FINGER A

LITTLE BIT.

Gordon: WHEN THE SOVIET

UNION COLLAPSED IN 1991,

LUCY MOVED TO ISRAEL, HOPING

FOR A BETTER LIFE.

I WAS 69 YEARS OLD WHEN

WE CAME TO ISRAEL.

MY HUSBAND WAS A DISABLED

VETERAN OF WORLD WAR II AND

HE WAS VERY ILL.

Gordon: LIFE IN ISRAEL

WAS ANYTHING BUT EASY.

LUCY'S HUSBAND RECEIVED A

SMALL VETERAN'S PENSION, AND

WHEN HE DIED, SHE HAD VERY

LITTLE MONEY TO LIVE ON.

MUCH OF LUCY'S HEALTH CARE

IS COVERED BY THE ISRAELI

GOVERNMENT, BUT THE ONE

THING SHE NEEDED MOST WAS

NOT.

LUCY'S WALKER IS WORN OUT

AND TOO HEAVY FOR HER TO

PUSH.

SO WE GOT HER A NEW ONE

THAT'S EASIER TO HANDLE.

THE BEST THING IS THAT IT

IS SO STEADY.

THE WHEELS ARE LOOSE ON MY

OLD ONE AND IT MAKES A LOT

OF NOISE.

AND NOW I HAVE A SEAT TO SIT

WHEN MY BACK HURTS.

Reporter HURTS.

Gordon: AND WE NOTICED

THAT LUCY'S AIR CONDITIONER

WAS BROKEN, SO WE INSTALLED

A NEW ONE TO GIVE HER RELIEF

FROM THE HEAT.

I CAN'T IMAGINE ANYONE

WOULD GIVE ME A BEAUTIFUL

THING LIKE THIS.

I AM THANKFUL THERE ARE

PEOPLE LIKE YOU IN THIS

WORLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Gordon: AND THANK YOU.

IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF "THE

700 CLUB," YOU'RE A PART OF

THAT.

ISRAEL, IF YOU WANT TO HELP

PEOPLE THERE, WE'RE REACHING

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A MOM

WORRIES WHEN HER HAIR KEEPS

FALLING OUT.

I'M STILL RAISING A YOUNG

BOY.

I'M A LOT OLDER THAN ALL OF

HIS FRIENDS' PARENTS.

AND I THOUGHT, GEE, THE POOR

KID, I DON'T WANT HIM TO

HAVE A MOTHER WITH NO HAIR,

TOO.

I WANT HIM TO BE PROUD OF

HIS MOTHER.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MOTHER FINDS AN INSTANT

SOLUTION TO HER PROBLEM.

THAT'S COMING UP.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AFTER THIS,

SO STAY WITH US.

Gordon: DARLEEN SPARKS

WAS LOSING HER HAIR, AND

THAT'S ENOUGH TO UPSET

ANYBODY.

FOR DARLENE, THERE WAS AN

ADDED CONCERN: SHE DIDN'T

WANT TO BE AN EMBARRASSMENT

TO HER YOUNG SON.

THEY WERE LONG STRANDS,

AND I WOULD FIND THEM INSIDE

THE VACUUM CLEANER ROLLERS

AND ON MY COUCH AND IN MY

CLOTHES.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS

DESPERATELY WRONG.

AM I LU USING THE WRONG

PRODUCT?

AM I NOT GETTING ENOUGH

VITAMINS.

HAIR IS A VERY MINOR PROBLEM

COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAVE IN

TODAY'S WORLD.

BUT IT IS IT WAS VERY

IMPORTANT TO ME BECAUSE I AM

STILL RAISING A YOUNG BOY.

I ADOPTED HIM WHEN HE WAS

THREE, AND I'M GOING TO BE

70.

I'M A LOT OLDER THAN HIS

FRIENDS' PARENTS, AND I

THOUGHT, GEE, POOR KID, I

DON'T WANT HIM TO HAVE A

MOTHER WITH NO HAIR, TOO.

I WANT HIM TO BE PROUD OF

HIS MOTHER.

I WAS WASHING THE DISHES,

AND TERRY CAME ON DURING THE

PRAYER TIME, AND SHE SAID,

SOMEONE IS LOSING HER HAIR.

Terry: IT IS NOT WHAT

IS COMMONLY CALLED

ALOPECIA -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT IT IS, BUT GOD IS

HEALING THAT CONDITION FOR

YOU.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

THAT'S ME.

THAT'S ME!

I STARTED JUMPING UP AND

DOWN, AND I RAN INTO THE

LIVING ROOM, AND SHE STARTED

TO SAY SOMETHING ELSE, AND

SHE SAID, YOU KNOW WHO YOU

ARE.

AND I SAID, YES, I DO.

THAT'S ME.

Terry: YOU KNOW WHO YOU

ARE, AND ALL OF THE SYMPTOMS

WILL GO AWAY AND YOU'LL BE

BACK TO NORMAL.

SURE ENOUGH, FROM THAT

TIME ON MY HAIR STOPPED

FALLING OUT.

IT APPEARS THICKER.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

IT SPLITTING AND SEEING MY

SCALP.

I JUST

BRUSH IT AND GO.

NO MATTER WHAT THE PROBLEM

IS, WHETHER IT IS SERIOUS OR

WHETHER IT IS MINOR, YOU CAN

TRUST GOD.

HE IS GOING TO COME

THROUGH.

ALWAYS.

HE SAID, ANYTHING YOU ASK IN

MY NAME, I WILL DO IT.

HE SAID, CUL O CALL ON ME

IN TIMES OF TROUBLE.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

LISTENING TO THIS AND

THINKING, I WISH THAT WAS

THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD, HAIR

PROBLEMS, BUT HE KNOWS.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

BUT HE CARES ABOUT THE

THINGS WE CARE ABOUT.

LIKE I SAID, IT IS AN

INSIGNIFICANT THING, IT IS

NOT CANCER OR DEVASTATING

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, IT IS

NOT A CHILD IN THE

HOSPITAL -- IT'S A TINY

THING.

BUT HE LOVES US INDIVIDUALLY

ENOUGH TO KNOW EVERYTHING

THAT CONCERNS US, AND HE IS

WILLING AND WANTING TO MAKE

EVERYTHING THAT CONCERNS US

PERFECTED.

HE IS A WONDERFUL GOD.

Gordon: HE IS WILLING

AND WANTING.

UNDERSTAND THAT.

UNDERSTAND THAT ON A HARD

LEVEL.

THAT WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND

THAT HE DIED FOR YOU, HE

DIED THAT YOU COULD BE

WHOLE.

HE DID ALL OF THAT.

YOU DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO ASK

HIM TO DO THAT.

HE DID IT FOR YOU, BEFORE

YOU WERE EVEN BORN.

AND THEN HE WANTS TO REDEEM

US ALL SO THAT WE CAN ALL BE

WITH HIM IN HEAVEN FOR

ETERNITY.

HE KNOWS YOUR NAME.

HE CALLS YOU BY NAME.

HE NUMBERS THE HAIRS ON YOUR

HEAD.

HE KNOWS EACH ONE OF THEM.

HE DOESN'T LIKE IT WHEN YOUR

HAIR IS FALLING OUT.

HE DOESN'T LIKE IT WHEN BAD

THINGS HAPPEN TO HIS

CHILDREN.

HE IS A GOOD FATHER.

AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IN OUR

TIME OF NEED IS CALL OUT TO

HIM, CRY OUT TO HIM, AND

LIKE ANY GOOD FATHER, HE

COMES RUNNING.

WHAT CAN I DO?

HOW CAN I HEAL YOU?

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS HAVE

THE FAITH TO BELIEVE.

AND WHEN WE DO THAT, WE

BREAKTHROUGH TO MIRACLES.

SO FOR YOU, WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

AGREE.

BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'VE GOT

SOME OTHER AMAZING

MIRACLES.

HERE IS ONE OF DANIEL, FROM

BRANFORD, NEW YORK.

HE HAD TYPE 2 DIABETES.

IN THE HOSPITAL HE FOLLOWED

ALL OF THE MEDICAL ADVICE,

BEGAN TO EAT RIGHT, LOSE

WEIGHT, YET THE NERVES ON

THE BOTTOM OF BOTH HIS FEET

HAD ALREADY BEEN BADLY

DAMAGED.

FROM THAT TIME ON, HIS FEET

HURT HIM.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND, TERRY, YOU HAD

A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

"YOU HAVE A CONDITION IN

YOUR FEET.

IT IS VERY HARD FOR YOU TO

FEEL THE FLOOR.

GOD IS HEALING THAT AND

RESTORING THOSE NERVE

ENDINGS IN JESUS' NAME."

DANIEL SAID, THAT'S FOR ME.

WITHIN FIVE MINUTES, THE

PAIN WAS GONE.

HE HASN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS

WITH HIS FEET SINCE.

NOW, THAT'S A MIRACLE.

THE DOCTORS WILL TELL YOU

NERVES CAN'T BE RESTORED,

BUT HERE WITH GOD, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

MIRACLE.

THAT IS HALLELUJAH.

Terry: THAT IS A

HALLELUJAH.

THIS IS SHEENA, WHO LIVES IN

BRITISH COLUMBIA, AND SHE

SLIPPED AND FELL, FRACTURING

HER SPINE.

AFTER SEVERAL DAYS IN THE

HOSPITAL WITH SEVERE PAIN,

SHE WAS SENT HOME WITH PAIN

PATCHES.

SHE REQUIRED A NURSE'S

ASSISTANCE JUST GETTING IN

AND OUT OF BED.

FIVE MONTHS LATER SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

SHE HEARD YOU, GARD GORDON,

GIVE THIS WORD "GOD HAS

RESTORED YOU.

JESUS HAS HEALED YOU.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO BEFORE,

GET UP AND DO NOW.

GOD WANTS TO ENSURE YOU IT

IS NOT COMING BACK AGAIN.

YOU'RE FREE NOW."

IMMEDIATELY SHEENA GOT OUT

OF HER CHAIR, AND SHE

PRAISED GOD.

WHEN SHE SAT DOWN, SHE

NOTICED ALL OF THE PAIN HAD

GONE.

AND SHE IS OFF THE PAIN

PATCHES AND SHE REQUIRES NO

CARE-GIVER.

HALLELUJAH.

AMAZING.

Gordon: THAT CAN HAPPEN

TO YOU.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE LOVES ALL OF HIS CHILDREN

EQUALLY, AND HE LOVES YOU

WITH AN UNDYING LOVE.

HIS LOVE IS ETERNAL.

IT WILL NEVER FAIL, AND IT

WON'T FAIL YOU.

SO START THINKING, HOW BIG

IS POSSIBLE?

HOW BIG IS THAT?

HOW BIG IS GOD?

AND IS HE ABLE TO DO FOR YOU

WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR

OTHERS?

AND THE ANSWER IS YES.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND WE'RE GOING

TO BELIEVE.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS IN

AN ACT OF FAITH, LAY YOUR

HAND ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING.

WE'LL AGREE, AND THE BIBLE

SAYS, "WHEN TWO ARE MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT

SHALL BE DONE."

SO WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

THAT.

WE'RE GOING TO RECEIVE THAT,

AND GOD IS GOING TO DO ALL

OF THE REST.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST COME TOGETHER

NOW, AND WE COME TOGETHER IN

AGREEMENT, IN AGREEMENT

ABOUT YOUR HEALING POWER,

THAT YOUR VERY NAME, RAFA,

YOU ARE HEALER.

YOU ARE THE LORD WHO HEALS

US.

AND SO, LORD, RIGHT NOW, AS

PEOPLE ARE LAYING HANDS ON

THAT AREA OF THE BODY THAT

NEEDS HEALING, WE COME INTO

AGREEMENT WITH THEM AND FOR

THEM, AND WE SAY BE HEALED

NOW IN JESUS' NAME, AND BE

RESTORED BY THE POWER OF

GOD.

THAT'S RIGHT, JUST LET IT

COME.

LET HIS PRESENCE OVERWHELM

YOU AND FILL YOU.

LET HIS PEACE BE ON YOU

NOW.

AND ALL OF THAT COMFORT AND

CALM AND ALL OF THAT PAIN

AND DISEASE AND MISERY AND

AGONY LEAVE YOUR BODY NOW.

IN THE PRESENCE OF ALMIGHTY

GOD, DISEASE DOES NOT

STAND.

HEAL NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS GOT

YOUR HAND ON YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER, AND YOU WISH YOU

COULD REACH THE AREA THAT

REALLY HURTS.

AND YOU'RE SAYING, I CAN'T

EVEN LAY HANDS ON IT.

AND GOD HAS HEARD YOUR CRY,

AND HE IS HEALING THAT

SHOULDER NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

ALL OF THAT PAIN IN THE BACK

OF IT IS LEAVING YOU.

IT'S GONE.

YOU'VE GOT FREE MOVEMENT IN

THE JOINTS.

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY IS

IMPOSSIBLE IS POSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

JUST BELIEVE IT NOW.

BEGIN TO MOVE YOUR RIGHT ARM

AND REALIZE YOU HAVE BEEN

HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: I JUST CONFIRM

THAT WORD, AND ALSO,

SOMEBODY, YOU HAVE BEEN SO

DEATHLY ILL.

CONSTANT VOMITING.

AND YOU HAVE LOST ALL HOPE,

BUT TODAY GOD IS HEALING

YOU.

JUST RECEIVE THAT.

STAND UP.

YOU HAVE COME TO LIFE

AGAIN.

HE IS PUTTING LIFE BACK FOO

YOU INTO YOUR BODY.

RECEIVE IT.

YOU ARE MADE WHOLE.

AND SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

CLICK IN YOUR KNEE THAT IS

UNCOMFORTABLE, AND GOD IS

HEALING THAT FOR YOU.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A DEGENERATIVE

DISEASE OF THE SPINE AND

YOU'RE RACKED WITH PAIN.

JUST TO MOVE IS PAINFUL.

EVEN TO MOVE YOUR HEAD.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

HE IS RESTORING EVERY

VERTEBRA.

HE IS ABLE, AND HE IS DOING

IT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE CRYING OUT,

PLEASE SAY LEFT SHOULDER.

SO GOD HAS HEARD YOUR CRY

AND HE KNOWS YOUR NAME AND

HE KNOWS YOUR SHOULDER, AND

HE IS HEALING IT RIGHT NOW

FOR YOU IN JESUS' NAME.

LORD, WE THANK YOU, FOR

YOU'RE THE HEALER.

WHEN WE RECEIVE YOU, WE

RECEIVE EVERY GIFT THAT YOU

WANT TO GIVE US.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

JOIN THE "SUPERBOOK" D.V.D.

CLUB.

IT'S EASY, 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, WE'VE GOT TIME FOR

SOME E-MAIL.

Terry: THIS IS FROM

FLOYD WHO SENDS IN THIS

E-MAIL, "IN LEVITICUS GOD

SAYS TO HIS PEOPLE, BE HOLY

FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE HOLY

WITH THE DAILY THINGS WE

HAVE.

I FIGHT THE THOUGHTS OF

SATAN, BUT HOW IS IT

POSSIBLE TO BE HOLY WITH

SINFUL THOUGHTS?"

Gordon: FLOYD, WHEN GOD

SAID, LET THERE BE LIGHT,

THERE WAS LIGHT.

THE LIGHT DIDN'T ARGUE.

SO WHEN GOD SAYS TO YOU, BE

HOLY, HE HAS THE FULL POWER

AND AUTHORITY TO DO THAT.

WHAT'S INTERFERING IS

SOMETIMES OUR FLESH GETS IN

THE WAY.

SOMETIMES DEMONS CAN WHISPER

THINGS TO US.

BUT THE WAY OUT HERE IS TO

RECEIVE MORE OF GOD.

YOU CAN HAVE THE MIND OF

CHRIST.

THAT'S WHAT PAUL SAID.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT.

HOW DO YOU GET IT?

WELL, YOU FILL YOURSELF WITH

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU RENEW YOUR MIND THROUGH

THE READING OF THE WORD.

YOU DWELL ON THOSE THINGS.

YOU THINK ABOUT THE GOD

THINGS THAT GOD HAS

PROVIDED.

AND IF YOU DO THAT

REGULARLY, IT WILL NO LONGER

BE A FIGHT.

I DO RECOMMEND THIS,

PARTICULARLY FOR PEOPLE THAT

ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH

SEXUAL SIN, GO ON A FAST,

DENY YOUR FLESH, AND THAT

WILL LEAVE YOU.

BUT DO IT.

BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT,

NOT FILLED WITH THE FLESH.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALM 138: "THE

LORD WILL FULFILL HIS

PURPOSE FOR ME.

HE WHO HAS BEGUN A GOOD WORK

WILL COMPLETE IT."

GOD BLESS YOU.
