Rachel accidentally left her car in neutral while parking resulting in life-threatening consequences. Plus, Cocaine addiction put Kim on the wrong side of a drug deal gone bad. Read Transcript


IS AMERICA SPLITTING

APART?

WE'RE AT THE POINT WHERE

WE CAN'T RECONCILE OUR

DIFFERENCES.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT IS

BEHIND THE SUCESSION

MOVEMENT.

PLUS...

THA I WAS SUFFOCATING.

Wendy: TRAPPED BETWEEN

TWO CARS, A CRY FOR HELP.

ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT

CAN GO THROUGH YOUR MIND IN

A MATTER OF MOMENTS.

Wendy: AND A SUPER

SUPERNATURAL ANSWER.

IF I DON'T END UP COMING

BACK, I KNOW WHERE I'M

GOING.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

VLADIMIR PUTIN IS A MASTER

CHESS PLAYER.

HE LEARNED IT IN THE K.G.B.

I THINK WE'RE PLAYING A POOR

GAME OF CHECKERS, AND HE IS

JUST BEATING THE SOCKS OFF

OF US, AND HE IS LAUGHING AT

US.

HE PUT HIS PEOPLE INTO THE

CRIMEA, AND WE'RE NOT DOING

ANYTHING TO SPHOP HIM.

STOP HIM.

THE PRESIDENT MAKES A FEW

MUMBLED REMARKS, AND THEY

DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND

WHAT IS GOING ON.

AND PUTIN SAYS, LISTEN, I'VE

GOT THE RIGHT, IF I WANT TO,

TO PUT MILITARY FORCE IN THE

UKRAINE BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE

ARE BEING OPPRESSED.

AND SO JOHN KERRY SAYS,

WELL, WE'LL LOAN A BILLION

DOLLARS TO THE UKRAINIANS.

BIG DEAL.

Terry: YEAH.

SO FAR WARNINGS FROM THE

U.S. AREN'T MAKING A BIG

DIFFERENCE.

TENSIONS ARE STILL HIGH IN

UKRAINE, WITH RUSSIAN TROOPS

FIRING WARNING SHOTS AT

UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS AT AN AIR

BASE.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

President Obama: RUSSIA

IS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF

HISTORY ON THIS.

Reporter: EVEN IN THE

FACE OF COMPREHENSIVE

SANCTIONS FROM THE U.S. AND

OTHER NATIONS, RUSSIA'S

MILITARY HAS TIGHTENED ITS

GRIP ON UKRAINE'S CRIMEA

PENINSULA, WITH AN ESTIMATED

16,000 TROOPS IN THE AIR, ON

THE GROUND, AND ALONG THE

SEAS.

THAT'S 10,000 MORE THAN

PREVIOUS REPORTS.

THE COUNTRY HAS PLUNGED

INTO CHAOS AND ANARCHY.

Reporter: VLADIMIR

PUTIN RULES THIS AREA OF

EASTERN UKRAINE NOW.

IN A NEWS CONFERENCE TODAY,

HE WARNED THE WEST COULD

ALSO SUFFER DAMAGE FROM THE

SANCTIONS, CALLING THEM

COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE AND

HARMFUL, AND HE ACCUSED THE

WEST OF PARTICIPATING IN AN

UNUSUAL COUP IN UKRAINE.

PUTIN SAYS HIS TROOPS DON'T

WANT TO USE FORCE, AND

THEY'RE ONLY THERE TO

PROTECT ETHNIC RUSSIANS

AGAINST VIOLENCE.

BUT MANY FEAR THIS

STRONGHOLD IS ONLY THE

BEGINNING.

GEORGE THOMAS IS ON THE

GROUND IN THE COUNTRY.

George: I FIRMLY

BELIEVE THAT RUSSIA'S

PRESIDENT, VA VLADIMIR

PUTIN HAS SET IT SIGHTS

BEYOND THE CRIMEA, TO THE

EASTERN PENINSULA OF THE

UKRAINE.

CLEARLY THOUSANDS OF RUSSIAN

FORCES ARE IN CONTROL OF THE

CRIMEAN PENINSULA.

AND TODAY TENS OF THOUSANDS

OF PRO-RUSSIAN DEMONSTRATORS

HAVE TAKEN TO THE STREETS OF

MANY KEY REGIONS IN THE

EAST.

Reporter: U.S.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY MAKES HIS WAY TO

UKRAINE IN A SHOW OF SUPPORT

TODAY.

AND WITH THE PROMISE OF

ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE.

EUROPEAN FOREIGN MINISTERS

MEETING IN BRUSSELS ARE ALSO

SENDING A WARNING TO

RUSSIA.

I HOPE VERY MUCH THAT

EVEN AT THIS STAGE THE

GOVERNMENT OF RUSSIA WILL

SEE THAT IT IS IN NOBODY'S

INTERESTS TO CONTINUE TO

INTERVENE IN UKRAINE'S

AFFAIRS.

Reporter: FOR NOW,

PUTIN HAS ORDERED TROOPS

PARTICIPATING IN MILITARY

EXERCISES IN WESTERN RUSSIA

NEAR THE UKRAINE BORDER TO

RETURN TO ITS BASES.

WHILE THE U.S. AND ITS

ALLIES ARE CONSIDERING A

WIDE RANGE OF ECONOMIC

SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THE PROBLEM WITH

SANCTIONS IS WE CAN'T GET

OUR ALLIES TO DO THAT.

THEY NEED THE RUSSIAN GAS.

A LONG TIME AGO RONALD

REAGAN WARNED ABOUT THIS.

HE SAID, WE BETTER BE

CAREFUL ABOUT THAT

PIPELINE.

AND EVERYBODY SAID, WELL,

THERE WILL BE JOBS AND

PROSPERITY AND ALL OF THAT

STUFF.

WELL, ACTUALLY, IT IS A

PIPELINE, LIKE A LIFELINE,

TO WESTERN EUROPE, AND THEY

CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT THE

NATURAL GAS COMING FROM

RUSSIA.

SO IF RUSSIA TURNS OFF THE

TAPS, WHERE ARE THEY GOING

TO GET THE GAS?

UNLESS THEY GET IT FROM US,

AND WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH

L.N.G. THAT IS NEEDED TO

TRANSPORT OUR NATIONAL GAS

OVER TO EUROPE, SO IT IS A

STANDOFF.

BUT THE RUSSIAN ARMY IS A

JOKE.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY ARMY

WORTHY OF THE NAME.

THE UNITED STATES COULD DO

SOMETHING.

THERE WAS A TREATY SIGNED

WITH TURKEY BACK IN THE

'30s, WHICH ENABLES A

CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TONNAGE TO

BE BROUGHT TO THE GARDEN

HILLS INTO THE BLACK SEA.

WE COULD SLIP SOME WARSHIPS

IN THERE UNDER THAT TREATY,

HAVE A PERFECT RIGHT TO DO

SO, AND WE MIGHT SHOW

MR. PUTIN THAT WE'RE NOT A

PAPER TIGER, AND HE CAN'T

PUSH US AROUND.

THE TROUBLE WITH THEM IS

THEY'VE GOT NUKES, THEY'VE

GOT LOTS AND LOTS OF NUKES.

AND MANY OF THOSE NUKES ARE

AIMED AT THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA.

AND THEY HAVE THE MISSILE

CAPABILITY TO GET THEM

HERE.

AND WE DON'T WANT EYEBALL TO

EYEBALL CONFRONTATION LIKE

WE HAD A LONG TIME AGO WITH

THE RUSSIANS.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE

CANNOT ALLOW HIM TO TAKE

AGGRESSIVE ACTION AND

ESTABLISH A GEMINI OVER A

COUNTRY THAT IS SUPPOSED TO

BE FREE AND ONE OF OUR

ALLIES.

WE NEED IMMEDIATELY TO GET

UKRAINE INTO THE NATO

ALLIANCE.

WE NEED SOME OF THE OTHER

EAST BLOCK COUNTRIES TO COME

INTO NATO.

WE NEED TO SHOW PUTIN THAT

HE IS GOING TO BE ISOLATED

AND THERE WILL BE TRADE

SANCTIONS, BUT WE'VE GOT TO

GET TOUGH WITH HIM.

HE UNDERSTANDS TOUGH.

HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND --

WELL, HE KNOWS THE KIND OF

POSTURE WE'VE BEEN PUTTING

ON, WHICH IS JUST A BLUFF.

HE UNDERSTANDS BLUFFING, AND

HE IS BLUFFING US.

AND HE IS WINNING.

WELL, HERE AT HOME SOMETHING

THAT IS REALLY A TRAGEDY,

WE'VE BEEN SHOWING YOU RIGHT

NOW ABOUT A CHRISTIAN FAMILY

IN GERMANY WHO WANTED TO

HOME-SCHOOL THEIR CHILDREN

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T WANT

THEIR CHILDREN TO BE EXPOSED

TO THE SECULAR, GODLESS

EDUCATION THAT WAS BEING

PROVIDED IN THE GERMAN

SCHOOLS.

AND THE GERMANS SAY IF YOU

DON'T PUT YOUR CHILDREN INTO

OUR SCHOOLS, WE WILL TAKE

THEM AWAY.

SO THEY FLED THE COUNTRY,

CAME TO AMERICA, AND SAID WE

WANT ASYLUM.

SO THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

HAS SPENT AN EXTRAORDINARY

AMOUNT OF MONEY TO BEAT THEM

IN COURT, TO DENY THEM THIS

ACCESS.

NOW, REMEMBER THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO LET

12 MILLION UNDOCUMENTED

ALIENS BECOME SOMEHOW

CITIZENS.

OKAY, 12 MILLION.

ONE FAMILY FROM GERMANY, A

CHRISTIAN FA FAMILY, AND

THEY SAY, WE HAVEN'T GOT

ROOM FOR YOU.

WHO ARE THEY KIDDING?

WELL, YESTERDAY, BEFORE THE

SUPREME COURT, THE COURT

SAID WE'RE SORRY, WE CAN'T

TAKE YOUR APPEAL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

THE GERMAN FAMILY HAS LOST

ITS FINAL LEGAL BID FOR

ASYLUM IN THE U.S.

THE SUPREME COURT REJECTED

THEIR APPEAL.

IN 2008 THE FAMILY FLED

GERMANY BECAUSE THE STATE

FLET TEND T THREATENED TO

TAKE THEIR CHILDREN CA AWAY

IF THEY DID NOT ENROLL IN

THE PUBLIC SCHOOL.

THE RO REMEIKE'S NOW FACE

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN

FINES AND COULD LOSE CUSTODY

OF THEIR CHILDREN.

THE LATEST MAJOR SNOWSTORM

IS OVER, BUT THE COLD

TEMPERATURES ARE BACK, TSX

TO TH THANKS TO THE

PHENOMENON KNOWN AS POLAR

VORTEX.

Reporter: KNOW, RAIN,

SLEET, IT IS NOT THE

UNOFFICIAL SLOGAN FOR THEU9%Q STATES POSTAL

SERVICE, BUT COULD BE THE

SLOGAN FOR THE UNITEDç STATES

ITSELF AS AN ARRAY OF

WEATHER HAS SWEPT ACROSS THE

NATION.

IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA,

MASSIVE RAINFALL GAVE WAY TO

MUDSLIDES.

IT WAS THE LARGEST STORM

SINCE 2010.

STILL, THE 12 INCHES OF RAIN

WASN'T ENOUGH TO ERASE

CALIFORNIA'S DROUGHT.

IN TEXAS, BACKUPS ON

SLEET-COVERED HIGHWAYS LEFT

PASSENGERS STRANDED IN THREE

CARS FOR HOURS.

ON INTERSTATE 45, TRAFFIC

STRETCHED ON FOR MILES.

Reporter: HOW LONG HAVE

YOU BEEN STUCK HERE?

ABOUT FOUR HOURS.

Reporter: IN TENNESSEE,

AN O ONSLAUGHT OF SNOW AND

ICE GAVE WAY TO ICY

CONDITIONS.

A STATE OF EMERGENCY WAS

DECLARED AS SOME 61,000

RESIDENTS WERE LEFT WITHOUT

POWER.

ON THURSDAY MORNING, THE

BIGGEST CONCERN WAS ICE.

THERE IS A CONCERN ABOUT

REFREEZING, AND TEMPERATURES

WILL DROP BACK DOWN TO THE

SINGLE DIGITS.

WE WON'T REALLY GET RELIEF

UNTIL TOMORROW AFTERNOON.

Reporter: SOME TOOK THE

WINTER WEATHER IN STRIDE AND

FELT RIGHT AT HOME.

I'M CANADIAN, AND

FRANKLY, THE SNOWPLOWS DON'T

EVEN COME OUT FOR A DAY LIKE

THIS.

THIS IS AVERAGE WINTER

WEATHER.

IT IS ACTUALLY QUITE

LOVELY.

AND THE FACT IT IS EASY TO

GET AROUND ON FOOT, IT'S

GREAT.

Reporter: HERE IN THE

NATION'S CAPITAL WAS

YESTERDAY'S SNOW, WITH UP TO

EIGHT INCHES IN SOME AREAS.

IT LED THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT TO CLOSE FOR THE

FOURTH TIME THIS REASON.

IT IS RECORD-BREAKING LOW

TEMPERATURES.

IT HAS BEEN IN THE SINGLE

DIGITS, AND THE LAST TIME

THAT HAPPENED IN D.C. IN THE

MONTH OF MARCH WAS 1873.

AND THE GREAT LAKES HAVE

VIRTUALLY BECOME AN ICE

RINK.

IMAGES CAPTURED BY NASA

SHOWED THAT THE RECORD LOWS

HAVE CAUSED THE LAKES TO ICE

BACK UP.

AND LAKE SUPERIOR IS NOW 95%

COVERED IN ICE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS SENT

HIS BUDGET BACK UP TO

CAPITOL HILL, BUT DON'T LOOK

FOR IT TO GO ANYWHERE.

THE BUDGET IS THE LATEST

EXAMPLE AND THEM NOT CUTTING

BACK ON SPENDING.

REPUBLICANS ARGUE THE BEST

WAY TO HELP THE ECONOMY GROW

IS CUTTING TAXES OR

REFORMING THE TAX CODE, NOT

MORE GOVERNMENT SPENDING.

PAT?

Pat: I AM APPALLED -- I

SHOULDN'T BE APPALLED.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE

HAVE LOST CONTROL OF THIS

WHOLE THING.

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO

DOESN'T CARE ABOUT FOREIGN

POLICY.

HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE

FACT WE'RE GOING INTO THIS

HIDEOUS HOLE OF DEBT.

THEY'RE NOT DAIG ANYTHING.

DOING ANYTHING.

AND THE WASTE IS

UNBELIEVER.

IT WOULD BE LAUGHABLE IF IT

WASN'T SO TRAGIC.

WE'RE WASTING MONEY ON

THINGS THAT ARE JUST TOTALLY

UNNECESSARY, AND IT IS

CRAZY.

AND THE AMOUNT OF MONEY --

WE TALK ABOUT DEBT IN THE

TRILLIONS.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR

IT?

THIS ISN'T BUILDING

INFRASTRUCTURE.

IT ISN'T SETTING UP A

CONDITION WHERE OUR COUNTRY

WILL PROSPER.

ALL IT IS IS JUST WASTING

MONEY ON THINGS THAT HAVE NO

BEARING WHATSOEVER TO

ANYTHING, EXCEPT GETTING

SOME OF THESE GUYS

RE-ELECTED.

AND WE, AS A NATION, HAVE

BECOME ADDICTED TO THIS

HEROIN OF FEDERAL SPENDING.

SOMETHING HAS GOT TO BE

DONE.

SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A

PRESIDENT WHO REALLY DOESN'T

CARE.

ALL HE WANTS TO DO IS HAVE A

GOOD TIME.

SHE TAKES VACATIONS.

HE HAS A VERY EXPENSIVE

AIRPLANE.

HE HAS A VERY EXPENSIVE

HOUSE HE LIVES IN. HE HAS

A FLEET OF AUTOMOBILES.

HE HAS ALL OF THE SERVICES

THAT THE VERY SUPER RICH

HAS.

AND HE ENJOYS IT.

IT DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE

REST OF US.

PAT, ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

IS ONCE AGAIN MAKING CLEAR

HE WILL SAFEGUARD ISRAEL'S

SECURITY AGAINST A POSSIBLE

NUCLEAR THREAT FROM IRAN.

HE MET WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA

AT THE WHITE HOUSE, WHERE

THEY TALKED ABOUT THE

PALESTINIAN PEACE TALKS AND

IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

NETANYAHU WARNED THAT IRAN

OPENLY CALLED FOR ISRAEL'S

DESTRUCTION, AND THEREFORE

ISRAEL CAN'T LET THE IRANIAN

REGIME BUILD NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

HE IS CONCERNED THAT THE

U.S. NEGOTIATIONS ARE

HELPING IRAN STALL AS IT

BUILDS A NEW NUCLEAR BOMB.

AND THE AMBASSADOR IS

WARNING THAT IRAN IS NOT

ONLY A THREAT TO ISRAEL, BUT

TO THE UNITED STATES AS

WELL.

HE ALSO WANTS TO GROW

ISRAEL'S RELATIONSHIP WITH

ONE OF ITS STRONGEST ALLIES:

CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: IF YOU THINK

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST DOES NOT AFFECT

AMERICA, THINK AGAIN.

IRAN IS BUILDING

ICBMs.

THEY'RE NOT BUILDING IT FOR

ISRAEL.

THEIR MISSILES CAN ALREADY

REACH ISRAEL.

Reporter: THE TARGET,

SAYS U.S. AMBASSADOR, IS

ISRAEL.

HOW IS THIS A PROBLEM FOR

AMERICA AS WELL?

BECAUSE WE'RE THE LITTLE

SAVE.

TO IRAN, YOU'RE THE GREAT

SAVE.

THE ONLY THING YOU PUT ON AN

ICBN IS A NUCLEAR WARHEAD.

THEY'RE DESIGNED TO BE SENT

THOUSANDS OF MILES ACROSS

THE OCEAN TO TRY TO REACH

YOU.

Reporter: RON DERMER IS

UNIQUELY POSITIONED TO SPEAK

TO ISRAELI CITIZENS.

HE WAS BORN AND RAISED IN

THE UNITED STATES, ALTHOUGH

ISRAELI.

AND HE ATTENDED THE

UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA.

MY WHOLE BELIEF SYSTEM IS

BASED ON BEING RAISED IN

THIS COUNTRY.

WHEN I THINK OF COURAGE, I

THINK OF NORMANDY BECAUSE I

WAS BORN AND RAISED AS AN

AMERICAN.

WHEN I THINK OF JUSTICE, I

THINK OF MARTIN LUTHER KING,

JR..

Reporter: HE ROSE TO

BECOME BENJAMIN NETANYAHU'S

CLOSEST ADVISOR, BUT HE

STILL SPEAKS AMERICAN, A

TRAIT THAT WILL COME IN

HANDY AS HE TRIES TO

CONVINCE AMERICA ABOUT THE

TRUE DANGER.

IRAN IS THE SINGLE MOST

TERRORIST IN THE NATION.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO GIVE THE

FOREMOST SPONSOR OF

TERRORISM IN THE WORLD --

YOU DON'T WANT THEM ANYWHERE

CLOSE TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

DERMMER, THE ONLY WAY TO

STOP IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM

COMES THROUGH CRIPPLING

SANCTIONS AND INCREDIBLE

MILITARY THREAT.

AS ISRAEL'S AMBASSADOR, HE

MUST MAKE THAT CASE DIRECTLY

TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA OPPOSES NEW

SANCTIONS, AND IS COMMITTED

TO DIALOGUE AND DIPLOMACY

WITH THE IRANIAN REGIME.

THE ONLY WAY THIS REGIME

WILL GIVE UP THEIR NUCLEAR

WEAPONS PROGRAM IS IF THEY

ARE FACED WITH THE SURVIVAL

OF THE REGIME AND THE

WEAPONS PROGRAM.

IF THAT'S THE CHOICE IRAN

FACES, THEY'LL GIVE UP THE

PROGRAM.

IF THEY DON'T FACE THAT

CHOICE, THEY WILL NOT GIVE

UP THE PROGRAM.

Reporter: IN FACING

IRAN AND OTHER THREATS,

DERMMER SAYS ISRAEL HAS NO

GREATER ALLY THAN AMERICAN

CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: HOW IMPORTANT

IS THAT CHRISTIAN SUPPORT AS

WE MOVE INTO SOME PERILOUS

TIMES?

I BELIEVE THAT THE TENS

OF MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS,

OF EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS

THROUGHOUT THIS COUNTRY, CAN

STAND SHOULDER TO SHOULDER

WITH ISRAEL, AND BEAT BACK

ANY ATTEMPTS TO BE

LEGITIMIZED, TO ALIGN

ISRAEL.

Reporter: THAT IS ONE

REASON AMBASSADOR DERMMER

SAYS HE IS LOOKING TO

STRENGTHEN THAT

RELATIONSHIP.

I THINK WE HAVE ONLY

SCRATCHED THE SURFACE.

THERE IS A LOT MORE TO

COME.

Reporter: ERICK

STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

PAT, AMBASSADOR DERMMER

SEEMS UNIQUELY POSITIONED

FOR HIS ROLE.

Pat: HE IS A DEAR

FRIEND AND HIS WIFE IS A

CHARMING LADY.

I SAID, BOY, YOU DON'T HAVE

A TRACE OF AN ACCENT.

YOU SPEAK LIKE AN AMERICAN.

AND SHE SAID, I OUGHT TO; I

WAS BORN IN OHIO.

WE HAVE THAT BOND ACROSS THE

OCEAN WITH THE ISRAELI

FRIENDS, AND I THINK IT IS

MARVELOUS THEY KNOW THE

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS ARE

THEIR STRONGEST SUPPORTERS.

BUT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

AGAIN, WE HAVE A PRESIDENT

WHO JUST DOESN'T GET IT.

THE THREATS ARE REAL, BUT HE

DOESN'T SEEM TO CARE.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE LOOKING AT

NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST.

WE'RE LOOKING AT A FANATICAL

REGIME THAT IS DEDICATED TO

DESTROYING ONE NATION AND

HARMING OTHERS.

AND WE DON'T -- WE TALK

ABOUT DIPLOMACY.

COME OFF IT.

WE NEED TO ACT TOUGH, BUT WE

DON'T DO IT.

WE'VE LOST OUR PREIMMINENCE

SAYS THE WORLD'S GREATEST

POWER.

WE BROUGHT THIS THING UPON

OURSELVES.

DON'T MAKE ANY MISTAKE ABOUT

IT.

I KNOW YOU MAY BE HAVING A

GOOD TIME, LIFE IS GOOD FOR

YOU -- I HOPE IT IS -- BUT

SOME STUFF IS COMING DOWN

THE ROAD THAT IS NOT TOO

PLEASANT.

TERRY?

Terry: WE'VE HEARD THE

PHRASE, "A HOUSE DIVIDED

AGAINST ITSELF CANNOT

STAND," AND NOW SOME ARE

STAYING THAT OUR NATION

NEEDS TO SPLIT APART TO STAY

TOGETHER.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

LISTEN OR TAKE OUR NEEDS

INTO CONSIDERATION AND

GOVERN IN A WAY IN

ACCORDANCE WITH THE WAY WE

WISH IT TO BE GOVERNED, WE

ARE SEEKING A DIVORCE.

Terry: MEET THE MEN AND

WOMEN BEHIND THE 51st@@@@

STATE INITIATIVE.

THAT'S NEXT.

T VE

*

Pat: REMEMBER YOUR

HISTORY BOOKS, A GUY NAMED

JOHN CALHOUN SAID, WELL,

LET'S SEE IF WE CAN'T JUST

TAKE THE SLAVE STATES AND

MOVE THEM OUT AND WE'LL HAVE

SUCESSION.

AND HE HAD ALL KINDS OF

APPEALING ARGUMENTS.

AND ABRAHAM LINCOLN THOUGHT

OTHERWISE, AND THEY HAD A

SPEECH ABOUT A HOUSE DIVIDED

AGAINST ITSELF CAN'T STAND

AND SO FORTH.

WELL, WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW,

IT'S NOT SUCESSION FROM

AMERICA, BUT SUCESSION FROM

VARIOUS STATES.

THEY TALK ABOUT SPLITTING

CALIFORNIA INTO SIX

DIFFERENT STATES.

AND THE CRY NOW IS IF YOU

CAN'T BEAT THEM, LEAVE

THEM.

THAT'S THE SENTIMENT BEHIND

A NEW GROUP OF SUCESSIONISTS

WHO WANT TO CREATE THEIR OWN

STATES.

THEY SAY THEIR CONSERVATIVE

AND RURAL VIEWS ARE BEING

IGNORED, AND THAT THE

GOVERNMENT -- I GUESS

EVERYBODY'S GOVERNMENT IS

TOO BIG AND UNDER CONTROL.

DAVID BRODY HAS THAT STORY.

David: THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA, COMPRISED

OF 50 STATES.

BUT, WAIT A MINUTE.

WHAT IF THE MAP LOOKED LIKE

THIS, A 51st STATE CALLED

JEFFERSON, MADE UP OF

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AND

SOUTHERN OREGON.

OR HOW ABOUT A NEW STATE

CALLED WESTERN MARYLAND OR

NORTH COLORADO.

THESE ARE REAL MOVEMENTS.

JEFFREY HAIR RUNS THE 51st

STATE INITIATIVE IN

COLORADO.

AN EFFORT TO FIGHT AN OUT OFç

CONTROL LEGISLATURE TRYING

TO RAM BIG GOVERNMENTç

POLICIES DOWN THE THROATS OF

VOTERS.

IT IS THE TALK OF TOWNHALL

MEETINGS.

I HAVE SEEN CHANGES

HAPPEN, PARTICULARLY OVER

THE LAST 10 TO 15 YEARS IN

THIS STATE, THAT CONCERN

ME.

IT IS URBAN VERSUS RURAL

BECAUSE YOU FIND MORE

TRADITIONAL, CONSERVATIVE

VALUES IN RURAL AMERICA.

David: AND THAT'S THE

CRUX OF THE ISSUE: RURAL

AMERICANS ACROSS MANY STATES

FEEL THEY'RE JUST NOT BEING

HEARD.

THEIR LAUNDRY LIST IS LONG.

AT THE TOP, GUN CONTROL

LAWS.

THERE IS AN ATTACK ON

RURAL COLORADO.

IT IS NOT JUST WITH THE GUN

CONTROL LAWS.

IT IS ON SEVERAL OF THE

OTHER BILLS THEY PAST.

David: INDEED IT IS.

THE GOVERNMENT MANDATES

COVER ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES

THAT RESTRICT OIL AND GAS

DRILLING.

AND CONTROVERSIAL SOCIAL

ISSUES LIKE GAY MARRIAGE.

ORGANIZERS WANT TO CREATE

NORTH COLORADO, AND THAT

IDEA WENT TO VOTERS IN 1 11

COUNTIES THIS LAST FALL.

I DON'T THINK THAT IS

NECESSARILY THE WAY TO MAKE

SOMETHING HAPPEN WITHIN THE

AREA THAT YOU LIVE.

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO WORK

WITHIN OUR ELECTORAL

SERVICES.

David: THE SO-CALLED

SUCESSION MOVEMENT HERE IN

COLORADO HAD MIXED RESULTS

LAST NOVEMBER.

SOME COUNTIES APPROVED IT;

OTHERS DIDN'T.

BUT THE ORGANIZERS OF THE

51st STATE INITIATIVE

SAID, HOLD ON A MOMENT.

THIS TYPE OF MOW OF

MOVEMENT TAKES TIME.

THIS TYPE OF MOVEMENT

TAKES TIME.

EDUCATION TAKES TIME.

IT IS HARD TO SAY I WANT TO

LIVE IN A DIFFERENT STATE,

EVEN WHEN THEY LIVE IN THE

SAME HOUSE.

TO SAY I WANT TO LIVE IN THE

STATE OF LIBERTY OR

SOMETHING DIFFERENT IS

HARD.

David: IT CAN ALSO BE

FELT IN STATES LIKE ARIZONA,

MICHIGAN, AND IN WESTERN

MARYLAND, WHEN THOUSANDS

SIGNED SUCESSION PETITIONS.

"WE INTEND TO EXERCISE OUR

PURSUIT TO LIFE AND THE

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS."

IF THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

TAKE OUR NEEDS INTO

CONSIDERATION, WE'RE SEEKING

AN AMICABLE DIVORCE.

David: IN NORTHERN

CALIFORNIA AND SOUTHERN

OREGON, ACTIVISTS WANT TO

COME TOGETHER IN THE STATE

OF JEFFERSON.

THEIR PROPOSED STATE FLAG

INCLUDES TWO "X"s,

REPRESENTING THEIR FEELING

OF BEING DOUBLE CROSSED BY

THE STATE CAPITALS OF

SACRAMENTO AND SALEM.

WE NEED SIGNATURES.

PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GO TO

YOUR NEIGHBORHOODS, YOUR

CHURCHES, YOUR JOBS, AND

EXPLAIN THIS TO PEOPLE AND

GET SIGNATURES THAT SUPPORT

IT.

David: CREATING A NEW

STATE ISN'T EASY.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE

LAST TIME A STATE ACTUALLY

GAVE UP TERRITORY WAS IN

1820, WHEN MAINE SPLIT FROM

MASSACHUSETTS.

SINCE THEN, ADDITIONAL

EFFORTS HAVE BEEN

UNSUCCESSFUL.

THE FIRST STEP IS GETTING IT

PASSED BY THE STATE

LEGISLATURE, AND THEN ON TO

THE U.S. CONGRESS.

THIS IS A VALID

CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS THAT

OUR FOUNDING FATHERS

SPECIFICALLY WROTE IN THE

CONSTITUTION.

IF THEY DIDN'T WRITE IT INTO

THE CONSTITUTION TO BE USED,

THEN WHY DID THE THEY WRITE

IT IN?

David: BUT SUPPORTERS

HAVE AN UPHILL BATTLE: THE

MEDIA WILL NOT BE THEIR

FRIEND.

THE DANGER IS ONCE THE

OUTSIDE MEDIA GRABS HOLD OF

IT, THE ATTENTION IS ON THE

DIFFICULTY OF IT.

David: THEY SAY A

DISMISSIVE ATTITUDE OF STATE

LEGISLATIVE BODIES MUST

END.

I FIND THE SORT OF

ARROGANT DISMISSIVE TO BE

FURTHER PROOF OF JUST HOW

DISCONNECTED THE URBAN IS

FROM THE RURAL.

David: MOVEMENTS LIKE

THIS IN COLORADO AND OTHER

STATES COULD BE JUST THE

BEGINNING.

THIS IS A NATIONAL

PROBLEM.

David: IT'S CALLED

VOTER DISCONTENT, WHERE THE

PEOPLE SAY THEY'VE HAD

ENOUGH, AND THEY'RE CRYING

OUT FOR SOMETHING TO BE

DONE.

WE AT SOME POINT HAVE TO

FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET OUR

POINT ACROSS, OR AT LEAST TO

BE ABLE TO HAVE A DIALOGUE

AND NOT BE IGNORED.

BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN

ANYTHING YET.

I THINK ALSO PEOPLE

WANT -- WHETHER YOU LOOK AT

IT FROM A RIGHT OR A LEFT

PARADIGM, PEOPLE WANT

GOVERNMENT TO STAY OUT OF

THEIR BUSINESS.

David: DAVID BRODY,

CBN NEWS, IN GREELEY,

COLORADO.

Pat: JESUS SAID IT

BEST, AND LINCOLN SAID IT

AGAIN, "A HOUSE DIVIDED

AGAINST ITSELF CAN'T

STAND."

UNFORTUNATELY, OUR NATION IS

DRIVEN APART.

THERE IS MORE ACRIMONY NE

AND DIVISION THAN EVER HAS

BEEN IN OUR HISTORY.

INSTEAD BEING AMERICANS,

WE'RE LEFT WING, RIGHT WING,

AND THE MEDIA FEEDS THE

FRENZY.

AND THEN YOU HAVE A

PRESIDENT WHO DOES

EVERYTHING HE CAN TO DIVIDE

US, AND SETS CLASS AGAINST

CLASS.

AND SO WE'VE GOT A SERIOUS

PROBLEM.

AND WE HAVE A PROBLEM WHERE

PEOPLE ARE -- A GREAT NUMBER

WANT TO GET WHAT THEY CAN

OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT,

REGARDLESS OF ANYBODY ELSE'S

FUTURE.

AND THE OTHERS WHO TRY TO

HOLD ON TO WHATEVER IS THERE

TO KEEP IT FROM FALLING

APART.

IT'S TERRIBLE.

AND A HOUSE DIVIDED CANNOT

STAND.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING UP,

A NEW MOTHER IS CAUGHT

BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD

PLACE, OR IN THIS CASE, TWO

MID-SIZED SEDANS.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I

COULDN'T BREATHE.

IT WAS LIKE THAT.

I KNEW IN THAT MOMENT, I'M

GOING TO DIE IN MY OWN

DRIVEWAY.

Terry: HEAR HOW SHE

SURVIVED.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THIS

COULD HAPPEN TO YOU ARE ME

OR TERRY OR ANY OF US.

RACHEL KELLY COULDN'T THE

MOVE, COULDN'T BREATHE,

BECAUSE SHE WAS SANDWICHED

BETWEEN TWO CARS.

AND EVERY GASP FOR AIR COULD

HAVE BEEN HER LAST.

AND SO WITH 4,000 POUNDS OF

STEEL SITTING ON HER TORSO,

RACHEL DID THE ONLY THING

SHE COULD.

SHE SAID, GOD, HELP ME.

I COULDN'T BREATHE AT

ALL.

I KNEW IN THAT MOMENT I'M

GOING TO DIE IN MY OWN

DRIVEWAY, WHILE MY FAMILY IS

INSIDE THE HOUSE.

Reporter: IN MAY 2009,

RACHEL KELLY WAS PREPARING

TO CELEBRATE MOTHER'S DAY.

SHE HAD JUST GIVEN BIRTH TO

HER SECOND CHILD TWO MONTHS

EARLIER.

ON A NORMAL AFTERNOON SHE

DROVE TO TOWN TO BUY HER OWN

MOTHER A GIFT.

WHEN SHE RETURNED HOME, HER

LIFE FLASHED BEFORE HER

EYES.

OUR DRIVEWAY IS ON THE

SIDE OF THE HOUSE, AND IT IS

A LITTLE SLOPED.

JUST BEING IN A HURRY,

RUSHING AROUND ALL OF THE

TIME, AND I DIDN'T PUT THE

CAR INTO PARK.

AND SO I GOT OUT AND IT KEPT

ROLLING.

Reporter: IN A MATTER

OF SECONDS, RACHEL'S BODY

WAS CRUSHED BETWEEN HER

STILL ROLLING CAR AND HER

HUSBAND'S VEHICLE.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I

COULDN'T BREATHE.

IT WAS LIKE WITH EVERY

BREATH I TOOK, THE SMALL

CENTIMETRES TOOK THAT MUCH

MORE OF MY LUNG CAPACITY.

I KNEW IN THAT MOMENT I WAS

SUFFOCATING.

I WAS BASICALLY THE ONLY

THING KEEPING THE CARS FROM

TOTALLY COLLIDING, OR I WAS

THE ONLY THING FROM KEEPING

MY CAR FROM GOING ON INTO

THE STREET.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

THE WAY SHE WAS POSITIONED,

RACHEL COULD REACH THE

STEERING WHEEL.

A VOICE CAME INTO MY

HEAD, AND I KNOW THAT WAS

THE LORD, LAY ON THE HORN.

IT WAS THAT CLEAR.

Reporter: RACHEL'S

HUSBAND, MICHAEL, WAS

WATCHING THE CHILDREN AND

RAN OUTSIDE WHEN HE HEARD

THE HORN.

TO SEE MY WIFE

SUFFOCATING LIKE THAT RIGHT

BEFORE MY EYES, AND KNOWING

IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO

GET THIS CAR OFF OF HER OR

I'LL LOSE HER.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

THE DOWNHILL ANGLE OF THE

CAR, MICHAEL WAS UNABLE TO

MOVE IT IN HIS OWN

STRENGTH.

IN DESPERATION HE PRAYED FOR

HELP TO ARRIVE.

GOD, YOU'VE GIVEN ME A

WONDERFUL WIFE AND TWO

WONDERFUL KIDS.

YOU KNOW, DON'T TAKE HER

AWAY FROM ME RIGHT NOW.

I KNEW THAT THAT WAS NOT THE

TIME FOR HER TO GO.

Reporter: AT THE SAME

TIME, KEITH STRAFFORD HEARD

THE CHAOS FROM DOWN THE

STREET.

I HEARD SOMEONE START

YELLING HELP.

IT LOOKED PRETTY BAD.

THE CARS WERE SITTING KIND

OF WEDGED IN THERE

TOGETHER.

JUST THE LOOK ON HER FACE,

JUST, LIKE, YOU'VE GOT TO

GET THIS THING OFF OF ME OR

I COULD DIE.

ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT

COULD GO THROUGH YOUR MIND

IN A MATTER OF MOMENTS.

OH, LORD, YOU HAVE TO HELP

ME.

YOU HAVE TO SAVE ME.

THIS CAN'T BE THE WAY I GO.

I HAVE TO BE HERE TO RAISE

MY CHILDRENMENT CHILDREN.

I HAVE TO BE HERE TO BE A

WIFE TO MICHAEL.

Reporter: AND A COUPLE

JUST HAPPENED TO BE GOING

BY, AND THE FOUR WERE ABLE

TO MOVE THE CAR.

LEGAL PARAMEDICS ARRIVED AND

TOOK RACHEL TO THE

HOSPITAL.

RACHEL'S DOCTOR DECIDED TO

LIFE FLIGHT HER TO

VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY, IN

CASE OF LIVER DAMAGE AND

INTERNAL DAMAGE.

AS I WAS BEING WHEELED

OUT TO THE HELICOPTER, I

THOUGHT, I DON'T KNOW IF

I'LL SEE MY HUSBAND AND KIDS

AGAIN.

I KNOW THAT GOD IS WITH ME.

HE IS HERE WITH ME.

HE IS HERE WITH ME INç HIS

HELICOPTER.

I KNEW I WAS SAFE.

I KNEW THATç THE HOLY SPIRIT

WAS GUIDING ME.

I KNEW THAT JESUS WAS WITH

ME.

IF I DON'T END UP COMING

BAB BACK, I KNOW WHERE I'M

GOING.

Reporter: AS NEWS OF

RACHEL'S ACCIDENT SPREAD,

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY

STARTED PRAYING FOR HER

SURVIVAL AND HEALING.

THE BODY OF CHRIST COMING

TOGETHER TO HELP OTHER

PEOPLE JUST REALLY

ENCOURAGED US.

Reporter: RACHEL WAS

KEPT OVERNIGHT IN

VANDERBILT'S INTENSIVE

TRAUMA UNIT.

AFTER RUNNING A BATTERY OF

TESTS, DOCTORS WERE SHOCKED

TO DISCOVER THAT RACHEL

DIDN'T HAVE A SINGLE BROKEN

BONE.

ANY TRAUMA TO HER UPPER

TORSO OR LUNGS, OR ANY

INTERNAL BLEEDING.

SHE WAS RELEASED THE VERY

NEXT MORNING, WITHOUT

NEEDING SURGERY OR ANY

FURTHER TREATMENTS.

THE POWER OF PRAYER,

PEOPLE LIFTING HER UP AND

PRAYING.

I KNOW -- I KNOW THAT'S WHY

SHE WALKED AWAY FROM

VANDERBILT HOSPITAL HEALED,

TRULY HEALED.

I THINK IT REALLY BOOSTS

YOUR FAITH THAT GOD REALLY

DOES WORK ALL THINGS

TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.

HE WORKED THINGS FROM ALL

SORTS OF DIFFERENT ANGLES

THAT DAY.

Reporter: TODAY RACHEL

IS STILL HEALTHY, AND THE

COUPLE NOW HAS FOUR

CHILDREN.

THEY SAY THE INCIDENT HELPS

THEM BE THANKFUL FOR EACH

DAY GOD GIVES THEM, TO LIVE

FOR WHAT IS IMPORTANT.

I THINK IT IS SO EASY TO

GET CAUGHT UP IN COMPLAINING

IN THE DAY TO DAY

ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY FOR

THE STAY-AT-HOME MOMS OR ANY

KIND OF MOM THAT IS JUST

WARN OUT.

I SAW HOW QUICK YOU CAN GO,

AND IT CAN BE AT ANY

MOMENT.

IT CAN HAPPEN IN THE BLINK

OF AN EYE.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE IS

WHERE YOU'LL SPEND YOUR

ETERNITY.

Pat: ISN'T IT AMAZING?

THAT'S A MIRACLE.

IT'S AMAZING.

FOLKS, WE WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU BECAUSE YOU MAY HAVE --

YOU MAY NOT BE SQUASHED

TOGETHER BY TWO CARS, BUT

YOU MAY BE HAVING A SERIOUS

PROBLEM.

AND, TERRY, WE HAVE SOME

TESTIMONIES OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN TOUCHED AS WE'VE

BEEN PRAYING.

HERE IS EDNA, SHE LIVES IN

BEAVER SPRINGS,

PENNSYLVANIA.

SHE DEVELOPED PROBLEMS WITH

HER FINGERNAILS.

THE DOCTORS COULDN'T FIND

ANYTHING WRONG.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, TERRY,

YOU HAD THIS WORD: YOU HAVE

A FUNGUS ON YOUR FINGERNAILS.

IT IS NOT UNSLIGHTLY, BUT IT

BOTHERS YOU.

EDNA JUMPED OFF THE COUCH

AND SAID THAT IS ME, AND THE

PROBLEM WAS HEAL.

Terry: THIS WOMAN

DEVELOPED PAIN IN HER HIP

ALL THE WAY DOWN TO HER

ANKLE.

DOCTORS SAID IT WAS PROBABLY

DUE TO SCOLIOSIS AND THEY

PRESCRIBED MEDICINE FOR

HER.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND HE HEARD

YOU, PAT, SAYING, THERE IS A

HIP AND A JOINT IS

DETERIORATING, AND WALKING

IS AGONY.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD, AND

MARILYN HAS NOT HAD ANY PAIN

SINCE THEN.

Pat: TERRY AND I DIDN'T

KNOW THESE LADIES.

BUT GOD KNEW THEM.

GOD KNOWS EXACTLY WHO YOU

ARE, HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHERE

YOU LIVE, AND HE KNOWS

EXACTLY THE STRUGGLES YOU'VE

GONE THROUGH.

WE'RE GOING TO JOIN HANDS

AND WE'RE GOING TO ASK GOD

FOR YOU.

AND LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU!

GOD IS HEALING A LUNG FUNGUS

RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT.

IT'S LIKE PARROT FEVER -- I

DON'T THINK YOU CAUGHT IT

FROM BIRDS, BUT WHATEVER IT

IS, THE LORD IS TAKING IT

AWAY.

AND YOUR LUNGS WILL BE

COMPLETELY HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE CONFUSION,

AND YOU ARE FEARFUL IT IS

THE ONSET OF ALZHEIMER'S,

BUT THE NOT THAT.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT AND

YOU'RE GOING TO BE FINE.

Pat: YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH YOUR EYES, AND THEY'RE

RUNNY, AND YOU SAID THE

DOCTORS CAN'T HELP YOU.

PUT YOUR HANDS ON YOUR EYES

RIGHT NOW, AND IN THE NAME

OF JESUS, AND JESUS HIMSELF

IS HEALING IT.

A THROAT CONDITION IS BEING

HEALED.

A KIDNEY INFECTION IS BEING

HEALED.

A KNEE THAT IS SORE IS BEING

HEALED.

MANY PEOPLE HAVE ARTHRITIS

IN THEIR HANDS.

IF YOU'RE MOVE YOUR HANDS

RIGHT NOW, JESUS IS HEALING

THEM.

TERRY?

Terry: AND SCOLIOSIS,

IT IS A CREATIVE MIRACLE,

AND GOD IS STRAIGHTENING

YOUR SPINE FOR YOU.

Pat: GOD, HEAL YOUR

PEOPLE.

MAY THEY KNOW YOUR

GREATNESS, AND MAY THEY

BEHOLD YOUR GLORY IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AMEN!

PLEASE CALL US.

IF WE CAN PRAY FOR YOU, WE

WOULD LOVE TO DO IT.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, GIVE HIM

THANKS FOR THE ANSWERS.

Terry: STILL TO COME,

PAT IS GOING TO ANSWER YOUR

QUESTIONS ON GOD,

CHRISTIANITY, AND SPIRITUAL

LIVING.

RACHEL SAYS "WITH ALL OF

THIS TALK ABOUT THE END OF

THE WORLD, I DON'T THINK I

SHOULD HAVE CHILDREN.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

WE'RE GOING TO TACKLE THAT

AND MORE LATER ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THE UNITED KINGDOM HAS

ANNOUNCED REGULATIONS FOR A

NEW FERTILIZATION METHOD

THAT COULD CREATE BABIES

USING SPERM AND EGGS FROM

THREE PEOPLE.

DOCTORS SAY THE TECHNIQUE

COULD ELIMINATE DEBILITATING

AND POTENTIALLY FATAL

DISEASES PASSED FROM MOTHER

TO CHILD.

NORTH KOREA HAS RELEASED A

75-YEAR-OLD AUSTRALIAN

MISSIONARY AFTER THREE WEEKS

DETENTION.

JOHN SHORT WAS ARRESTED

FEBRUARY 16th FOR SECRETLY

DISTRIBUTING BIBLES AT A

BUDDHIST TEMPLE IN

PYONGYANG.

NORTH KOREA DEPORTED HIM

APOLOGIZED FOR COMMITTING

ANTI-STATE RELIGIOUS ACTS.

SOME QUESTIONS?

Terry: THIS FIRST

QUESTION, PAT, IS FROM

APRIL, WHO SAYS, "WITH ALL

OF THIS TALK ABOUT THE END

OF THE WORLD, I FEEL I

SHOULDN'T HAVE CHILDREN.

I DON'T WANT THEM TO

SUFFER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: YEARS AGO, I FELT

THE SAME WAY YOU DID, ABOUT

50 YEARS AGO.

WE HAD OUR FOURTH CHILD.

AND I HELD THIS LITTLE GIRL

IN MY ARMS, AND I THOUGHT,

GOD, WHAT AM I BRINGING INTO

THIS WORLD.

WHAT THINGS ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN TO HER.

I JUST THINK IT'S -- I FEEL

SO BAD.

BUT I ENTRUSTED HER TO THE

LORD.

AND NOW SHE IS TURNING 50

AND HAS WONDERFUL CHILDREN

OF HER OWN AND IS DOING VERY

WELL.

SO MY FEARS WERE NOT

WELL-FOUNDED.

Terry: AND GOD USES HIS

CHILDREN FOR HIS KINGDOM

PURPOSES.

Pat: OCCUPY UNTIL I

COME.

WE CAN'T STOP HAVING

BABIES.

WE CAN'T STOP FAMILY.

WE CAN'T STOP OUR WORK.

WE'VE GOT TO MOVE ON.

OCCUPY UNTIL I COME.

WE DON'T KNOW THE DAY OF THE

HOUR.

SO DON'T STOP WHAT YOU'RE

DOING AND SAY I'M GOING TO

WAIT FOR THE COMING OF THE

LORD.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: KAREN SAYS, "MY

HUSBAND ISç A RECKLESS

SPENDER, HE ALSO LIESç AND

BREAKS PROMISES AND IS

VERBALLY ABUSIVE.

WE'VE BEEN TO SIX MARRIAGE

COUNSELLORS, INCLUDING

CHRISTIAN ONES, BUT HE SAYS

IT IS A WASTE OF TIME AND

MONEY.

I CAN'T HONESTLY SAY I LOVE

HIM.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?"

Pat: DARLING, YOU CHOSE

HIM.

THAT'S WHY I TELL YOU, DON'T

GET MARRIED UNLESS YOU KNOW

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

YOU PROBABLY MARRIED AT 18

OR SOMETHING AND HAD STARS

IN YOUR EYES AND YOU HEARD

MUSIC, AND HE IS

GOOD-LOOKING AND ALL OF THAT

STUFF, AND THE BIRDS WERE

SINGING --

Terry: THE CLOUDS

PARTED.

Pat: THE CLOUDS PARTED,

AND THERE IT WAS.

WELL, WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW?

I THINK A LITTLE TOUGH LOVE

WILL BE IN ORDER.

YOU'VE TRIED MANY

COUNSELLORS.

I'D SAY, YOU'RE GOING TO

SHAPE UP AND YOU'RE GOING TO

QUIT LYING, YOU'RE GOING TO

BEHAVE YOURSELF, OR WE'RE

GOING TO GET A SEPARATION.

AND I'M TALKING TO A LAWYER

AND IT WILL COST YOU A

FORTUNE.

LET HIM KNOW THERE ARE SOME

CONSEQUENSES FOR HIS ACTS.

Terry: THIS IS JANE WHO

SAYS, "HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN

GOD IS SPEAKING TO US.

SOME PEOPLE SAY WE'LL HEAR A

VOICE AND WE'LL KNOW IT.

I'VE WATCHED YOUR VOICE, AND

I HEARD YOU SAY ON SEVERAL

OCCASIONS YOU THOUGHT YOU

HEARD GOD SAYING SOMETHING.

IF YOU, BEING A MAN OF GOD,

THINK YOU'VE HEARD GOD, HOW

CAN I KNOW, BEING A

CHRISTIAN?"

Pat: THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAID IT, I THINK I HAVE THE

SPIRIT OF CHRIST.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT WOMEN.

HE IS A BATC BACHELOR, AND

HE SAYS, I THINK I'VE HEARD

FROM GOD.

IT'S IN THE BIBLE.

YOU KNOW, WE SEE THROUGH A

DARK GLASS DARKLY, AND THEN

FACE TO FACE.

WE KNOW IN PART, WE PROPHESY

IN PART.

WE DON'T SEE CLEARLY.

WE SEE THROUGH A GLASS

DARK.

AND A VEIL HAS BEEN BROUGHT

DOWN BETWEEN US AND THE

ULTIMATE GLORY OF GOD.

AND EVERY SO OFTEN THAT VEIL

OPENS A LITTLE BIT AND WE

SEE A LITTLE MORE CLEARLY.

WE'VE GOT THE BIBLE AND THE

BIBLICAL ACCOUNT, AND THAT

SHOULD BE OUR GUIDE.

Terry: AND WHEN YOU SAY

THIS -- I'VE BEEN WITH YOU

WHEN YOU HAVE SAID THIS MANY

TIMES, AND YOU, IN YOUR

HEART ARE BELIEVING YOU'VE

HEARD THE WORD OF GOD.

YOU'RE MERELY ACCOUNTING FOR

THE FACT YOU'RE HUMAN.

OKAY, THIS IS JENNIFER, WHO

SAYS, "A CLOSE FRIEND OF

MINE BELIEVES THAT THE

PERSON GOD WANTS HER TO

MARRY IS HER FIRST COUSIN.

THEY'RE BOTH COMMITTED

CHRISTIANS, AND THEY'VE

RECEIVED SEVERAL PROPHETIC

WORDS IN FAVOR OF THEIR

UNION, AND BOTH FAMILIES

SUPPORT IT.

THERE IS A CALL OF THE LORD

ON BOTH OF THEIR LIVES.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: KISSING COUSINS.

HERE IS THE DEAL, IF THEY

ARE RECESSIVE GENES AND

THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE

FAMILY THAT WOULD COME OUT

WHEN THOSE TWO RECESSIVE

GENES COME TOGETHER -- OTHER

THAN THAT, THERE IS NO

PROBLEM.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE

BIBLE THAT SAYS YOU CAN'T

MARRY YOUR FIRST COUSIN.

IF YOU SAY EVERYBODY IS IN

FAVOR OF IT, ALL RIGHT, GO

FOR IT.

BUT I WOULD CHECK THE

GENETICS.

GET SOME GENETICISTS TO

CHECK THE D.N.A.

YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE SOME

MONGOLOID CHILD -- I

SHOULDN'T SAY MONGOLOID --

Terry: A CHILD WITH

DISEASES.

Pat: DISEASES.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

LATANT DISEASES THAT CAN

HAPPEN.

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME YOU HAVE FOR

TODAY'S QUESTIONS, BUT WE DO

THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING

HEM.

COMIN THEM.

COMING UP, DEATH RIDES

SHOTGUN.

HE WAS RIDING WITH ME.

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR ME

TO CLOSE MY EYES.

Terry: HEAR HOW THIS

MAN CHEATED DEATH.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: KIM IVORY FELT

HIS LIFE SLIPPING AWAY FROM

HIM.

HE HAD BEEN SHOT, AND HE WAS

BLEEDING TO DEATH.

KIM KNEW HE NEEDED TO GET TO

A HOSPITAL OR ELSE HE WOULD

BE GOING TO HELL.

I KEPT LOOKING OVER MY

SHOULDER, INTO THE BACK

SEAT, BECAUSE IT FELT LIKE

SOMEONE WAS IN THE CAR WITH

ME.

AND I JUST BELIEVED THAT

THAT WAS DEATH.

HE WAS RIDING WITH ME, AND

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR ME

TO CLOSE MY EYES.

AND I KEPT TRYING TO HOLD MY

EYES OPEN BECAUSE I KNEW THE

MOMENT THAT I CLOSED MY

EYES, THAT I WAS GOING TO

LIFT THEM UP IN HELL.

Reporter: IN DECEMBER

OF 1993, KIM IVORY WAS SHOT

IN THE CHEST AS HE SPED AWAY

FROM A DRUG DEAL THAT HAD

GONE WRONG.

I NEVER FELT FEAR LIKE

THIS BEFORE.

I HAD BEEN FREE-BASING

COCAINE SINCE 1992.

I BEGAN TO DO THINGS THAT

WOULDN'T BOTHER MY

CONSCIENCE THAT NORMALLY

WOULD HAVE.

Reporter: SELLING DRUGS

AND STEALING HAD BECOME A

WAY OF LIFE.

WHEN HE WAS 30, KIM WAS

SENTENCED TO PRISON FOR

STRONG-ARMED ROBBERY.

WHILE INSIDE, HE SOUGHT TO

CLEAN UP HIS LIFE.

I DIDN'T WANT DRUGS BACK

IN MY LIFE.

IN MY MIND AND IN MY HEART,

I DIDN'T WANT IT.

Reporter: RELEASED A

YEAR AND A HALF LATER, HE

WENT HOME WITH HOPES OF

STAYING CLEAN.

BUT AS HARD AS HE TRIED, THE

OLD HABIT CAME BACK.

IT TOOK ME HOSTAGE, AND I

SEEN ME HANDCUFFED TO THIS

ADDICTION.

I COULDN'T FIND A WAY OUT.

I TRIED EVERYTHING.

DETOXING, I TRIED

REHABILITATION, 12-STEP

PROGRAMS, A NUMBER OF

TIMES.

BUT I JUST NEVER COULD GET

MYSELF OUT.

IT GOT WORSE.

Reporter: HE CONTINUED

RUNNING STREET HUSTLES.

ONE NIGHT IN DECEMBER, A

DISPUTE FLARED UP AT A DRUG

DEALER.

THE GUY WENT INTO HIS

COAT AND PULLED OUT A .38

CALIBER.

BLOOD WAS COMING OUT OF MY

EARS, AND COMING OUT OF MY

NOSE.

MY CHEST WAS FULL OF BLOOD.

DEATH WAS IN THE CAR WITH

ME.

HE WAS RIDING WITH ME.

AND HE WAS JUST WAITING, YOU

KNOW, FOR ME TO CLOSE MY

EYES.

I BEGAN TO CALL ON GOD TO

SAVE MY LIFE.

I TOLD HIM I WAS SORRY.

AND THAT I WAS SORRY FOR

DOING THE THINGS I DID,

SHAMING MY FAMILY NAME.

AND I ASKED HIM TO COME IN

MY LIFE AND JUST SAVE ME.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO HELL.

I DON'T WANT TO DIE.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO HELL.

Reporter: KIM PULLED

INTO A PARKING LOT WHERE HE

PASSED OUT.

A SECURITY GUARD FOUND HIM

AND CALLED 9-1-1.

WHEN I WOKE UP, I WAS IN

THE AMBULANCE, AND THE

PARAMEDICS -- ONE PARAMEDIC

WAS TAKING THE OXYGEN MASK

OFF MY FACE.

AND HE WAS LOOKING DOWN ON

ME AND HE WAS SPEAKING TO

THE OTHER PARAMEDIC AND HE

SAID, HE'S NOT BREATHING.

AND THE OTHER PARAMEDIC JUST

LOOKED AT ME AND SHOOK HIS

HEAD AND PUT HIS HEAD DOWN.

AT THAT TIME MY EYES BEGAN

TO GET HEAVY AGAIN.

THEY GOT SO HEAVY THAT NO

MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED TO

HOLD THEM OPEN, IT SEEMED

LIKE SOMEONE HAD A HOLD TO

THEM AND WAS PULLING THEM

DOWN.

Reporter: AT THE

HOSPITAL, DOCTORS FOUGHT TO

SAVE HIS LIFE.

THEY MANAGED TO STABILIZE

HIM BUT COULDN'T REMOVE THE

BULLET BECAUSE IT WAS TOO

CLOSE TO HIS SPINE.

I WAS JUST SO GLAD THAT

JESUS GAVE ME ANOTHER

CHANCE.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT AROUND

NOW.

Reporter: AS HE

RECOVERED, HE WENT TO A

REVIVAL AT HIS SISTER'S

CHURCH.

AFTER THE SERVICE, KIM WENT

FORWARD FOR PRAYER FROM THE

MINISTER.

HE LAID HIS HAND ON MY

CHEST AND HE BEGAN TO PRAY.

HE SAID, GO ON HOME NOW,

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

ALL RIGHT.

Reporter: BACK AT THE

HOUSE, KIM GREW RESTLESS.

I FELT A WARMTH COME OVER

MY BODY.

I NEVER FELT A FEELING LIKE

THIS IN MY LIFE.

WHEN I GOT INTO MY BEDROOM,

I SAT DOWN ON THE EDGE OF MY

BED, AND I GRABBED MY

SOCKS.

AND I BENT OVER TO PUT MY

SO SOCK ON, AND I FELT

SOMETHING HIT ME IN THE

FRONT OF MY MOUTH.

I JUST HELD MY HAND,

COVERING MY MOUTH.

AND I WAS, LIKE, UH-OH.

I EASED MY HAND OPEN TO JUST

PEEK AT IT, AND THE MORE I

OPENED MY HAND AND I SAW

THAT BULLET SITTING IN MY

HAND, I JUST BEGAN TO SCREAM

AND HOLLER.

I COULDN'T SAY WORDS.

I WAS JUST SCREAMING AND

HOLLERING.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

KIM SHARED HIS MIRACULOUS

STORY BACK AT THE CHURCH.

AS WORD OF HIS TESTIMONY

SPREAD, HE WAS ASKED TO

SPEAK AT CHURCHES AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

HOWEVER, A NEW PROBLEM

AROSE.

THE PRESSURE OF HAVING TO

LIVE RIGHT BECAUSE EVERYBODY

WAS WATCHING ME -- I'VE GOT

TO WALK AS IF I'M WALKING ON

EGG SHELLS, AND I'VE GOT TO

SAY THE RIGHT THING ALL THE

TIME, I'VE GOT TO DO THE

RIGHT THING ALL THE TIME.

THAT BEGAN TO BE A PRESSURE

ON ME.

AND SO EVENTUALLY I ENDED UP

BACK WHERE I STARTED.

SOMETIMES WE THINK THAT WHEN

PEOPLE GIVE THEIR LIFE TO

THE LORD, THAT THINGS SHOULD

CHANGE OVERNIGHT.

Reporter: FOR SEVEN

MORE YEARS KIM STRUGGLED

WITH HIS ADDICTIONS.

I FOUND MYSELF GETTING

ANGRY WITH GOD.

WHY DID YOU ALLOW ME TO COME

BACK HERE?

I BEGAN TO GIVE UP.

WOW, WHAT WAS IT ALL FOR?

COULD I EVER BE DELIVERED?

COULD HE DELIVER ME?@ó

Reporter: AT AN

ARRAIGNMENT FOR FAILURE TO

APPEAR IN COURT, KIM LEARNED

ABOUT TEEN CHALLENGE.

HE DECIDED TO ENROLL IN

THEIR YEAR-LONG RECOVERY

PROGRAM, HOPING IT WOULD BE

THE CHANGE HE NEEDED.

I READ THE BIBLE CONS

CONSTANTLY.

IT WAS THERE WHERE I LEARNED

HOW TO HAVE AN INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD.

HE BEGAN TO SHOW ME HOW TO

BE DISCIPLINED AND HOW TO

ALLOW THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO

OVERTAKE MY LIFE.

AND TO LET HIM HAVE THE

GREATER INFLUENCE IN MY

LIFE.

IT WAS JUST SO REAL FOR ME.

I WAS FREE.

THE ENEMY DIDN'T HAVE NO

POWER OVER ME.

SATAN DIDN'T HAVE NO POWER

OVER ME.

DRUGS DIDN'T HAVE NO POWER

OVER ME.

Reporter: KIM HAS BEEN

LIVING DRUG-FREE SINCE

2009.

h I KNOW THE STRUGGLE I

WENT THROUGH, GOD IS GOING

TO USE THAT TO SHOW OTHERS,

THAT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE

GOING THROUGH SOMETHING, AND

THAT HE KNOWS ALL ABOUT IT.

AND THAT HE IS A DELIVERER.

WHATEVER YOUR SITUATION IS

GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT

NOW, THAT GOD IS ABLE.

AND I'M A LIVING WITNESS, A

LIVING EXAMPLE, THAT GOD IS

ABLE TO TURN IT AROUND.

AND GOD IS ABLE TO DEFEAT

THAT THING, BECAUSE GREATER

IS HE THAT IS IN YOU THAN

ANYTHING THAT IS IN THIS

WORLD.

Terry: YOU CAN HEAR THE

BROKENNESS IN KIM'S VOICE AS

HE SHARES HIS LIFE STORY.

ONE OF STRUGGLE.

ONE OF HEARTBREAK, ONE OF

CAPTIVITY.

JESUS SAID HE CAME TO SET

THE CAPTIVE FREE.

HE WAS CAPTIVE.

HE WAS CAPTIVE TO DRUGS, TO

POOR CHOICES, TO?X'EED IN HIS

LIFE.

AND IN THE END, JESUSç CAME

AND FORGAVE HIM AND SET HIM

FREE FROM ALL OF IT.

YOU CAN BE SET FREE, TOO.

GREATER IS HE THAT LIVES IN

YOU THAN ANYTHING.

A BRUISED REED HE WILL NOT

BREAK, AND A SMOLDERING WICK

HE WILL NOT SNUFF OUT.

THAT'S GOD'S WORD TO YOU.

NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU'RE

HURTING, HOW DIFFICULT YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES, HE WILL NOT

CRUSH YOU.

HE WILL NOT GIVE YOU MORE

THAN YOU CAN BEAR.

BUT HE WILL ASK YOU TO GIVE

ALL THAT YOU ARE AND TO GIVE

ALL OF YOU HAVE TO HIM.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE

UGLY.

AND THE AMAZING THING IS HE

IS NOT ONLY ABLE, BUT HE

GLADLY TAKES THAT.

THE MESS WE HAVE MADE OF OUR

OWN LIVES, AND HE TURNS IT

INTO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL, IF

WE'LL LET HIM.

WILL YOU LET HIM TODAY?

INVITE JESUS CHRIST INTO

YOUR LIFE.

AND, LISTEN, IF YOU'VE GOT A

NEED, PRAY WITH SOMEONE.

WE'VE GOT SOMEONE STANDING

BY.

HERE IS A PHONE NUMBER

COMING UP UP ON YOUR

SCREEN.

1-800-759-0700.

CALL AND PRAY WITH SOMEONE

RIGHT NOW.

THIS IS YOUR DAY TO BE SET

FREE.

PAT?

Pat: THANKS, TERRY.

WELL, THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

I WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE, TAKEN

FROM THE PROPHET ISAIAH:

"THOSE WHO WAIT ON THE LORD

SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH.

THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH

WINGS, LIKE EAGLES.

THEY SHOULD RUN AND NOT BE

WEARY.

THEY SHALL WALK AND NOT

FAINT."

WELL, TOMORROW, INSIDE THE

LIFE-CHANGING AND

LIFE-SAVING BREAKTHROUGH

MADE BY ISRAELI DOCTORS.

THAT'S WEDNESDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

SO UNTIL THEN, FOR TERRY AND

ALL OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON SAYING THANKS FOR

BEING WITH US.

WE'LL SEE YOU IN THE NEXT

EDITION.

GOOD-BYE.

GOD BLESS YOU.
