TURKEY'S RADICAL TURN.

HE IS SYNTHESIZINGçç

TURKISH NATIONALISM WITH THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

AND THEN.

FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE.

HE SAID, I'M GOING TO COME

ACROSS THIS ROOM AND I'M

GOING TO TAKE YOU.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Pat: WELL, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THE CLIMATE IS

MUCH WARMER, BUT SOMEHOW THE

STATESç INç THE MIDWEST DIDN'T

GET THE MEMO.

IT'S APRIL, BUT THAT DOESN'T

MEAN IT FEELS LIKE SPRING IN

MANY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.

APPARENTLY GLOBAL WARMING

ISN'T STOPPING THE SNOW.

SOME AREAS COULD BE COVERED

BY MORE THAN A FOOT OF SNOW

THIS WEEKEND.

Terry: WE THINK SPRING

HAS BEEN SLOW COMING HERE,

CAN YOU IMAGINE?

AND THEN A SEVERE WEATHER

SYSTEM IS HITTING OTHER

PARTS OF THE CóU

WELL, WITH DANGEROUS STORMS

ALL THE WAY FROM FLORIDA TO

THE PANHANDLE.

Reporter: FORGET APRIL

SHOWERS, OUT WEST IT IS

STILL SNOW, SNOW, AND MORE

SNOW.

A BIG STORM IS EXPECTED TO

DUMP SIX TO 14 INCHES TODAY

IN PARTS OF MINNESOTA.

IN COLORADO, SEVERAL SKI

AREAS ARE EXTENDING THEIR

SEASON, THANKS TO AN

UNUSUALLY SNOWY SPRING.

IN OTHER PARTSçç OF THE U.S.

TODAY, A WAVE OF SEVERE

WEATHER IS WREAKING HAVOC.

FORECASTERS PREDICT THAT

VIOLENT STORMS WILL HIT MUCH

OF THE EASTERN PART OF THE

COUNTRY, BRINGING DAMAGING

WIND AND THE THREAT OF

TORNADOES.

OVERNIGHT, THOSE STORMS

ROLLED THROUGH PARTS OF THE

MIDWEST AND SOUTH.

IN TEXAS, HAIL STORMS LASTED

FOR HOURS, SENDING PEOPLE

RUNNING FOR COVER ANDçç

SHATTERING WINDSHIELDS.

I WAS TELLING PEOPLE, I

DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO

WITH THE GLASS.

I'VE NEVER BEEN IN THIS

SITUATION.

Reporter: THIS WAS THE

VIEW FROM ONE WOMAN'S PORCH,

A RIVER OF HAIL FLOWING DOWN

THE STREETS.

AN EF-1 TORNADO TOUCHED

DOWN.

AND IN KANSAS AND INDIANA,

FLASH-FLOODS HAD EMERGENCY

CREWS RESCUING DrI)ERSç FROM

SUBMERGED VEHICLES.

TODAY'S STORMS ARE EXPECTED

TO WEAKEN AS THEY REACH THE

EAST COAST.

BUT THUNDERSTORMS ARE

POSSIBLE FROM D.C. TO

BOSTON.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THERE IS A

LEFT-WING COURT IN THE

COUNTRY WE'VE BEEN DEALING

WITH FOR YEARS, AND IT IS

CALLED THE SECOND CIRCUIT.

AND I'M SURE IT IS THE HOME

OFçç EX-YALE LAW PROFESSORS.

BUT WHEREVER THEY ARE, THAT

COURT HAS RULED THAT SOME

CHURCHES IN NEW YORK CITY

MAY NOT BE ABLE TO OPERATE

AS SUCCESSFULLY AS IN THE

PAST.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

PAT, DOZENS OF RELIGIOUS

GROUPS AND CHURCHES THAT

MEET IN NEW YORK SCHOOLS

MIGHT HAVE NOWHERE TO

CELEBRATE EASTER OR PASSOVER

BECAUSE OF A RULING FROM ITS

THREE-JUDGE PANEL ON THE

SECOND CIRCUIT COURT OFç

APPEALS.ç

THE JUDGES HAVE HELD A BAN

ON HOLDING RELIGIOUS

SERVICES IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

ONE PASTOR IS PRAYING THE

DECISION WILL BE

OVERTURNED.

THE FIGHT IN NEW YORK CITY

OVER CHURCH IN CITY SCHOOLS

HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR

DECADES.

CHARLENE HAS VISITED WITH

ONE PASTOR WHO THINKS THE

CHURCHES ARE DOING A LOT OF

GOOD FOR THE SCHOOLS, AND HE

IS COMMITTED TOç

STAY.

Reporter: THIS PASTOR

IS ONE OF MANY PASTORS IN

NEW YORK FIGHTING FOR THE

RIGHT TO HOLD SERVICES IN

PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE CITY.

SO MUCH PRAYER IS GOING

FORWARD.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE

JOINING US IN THE FIGHT.

Reporter: 16 YEARS AGO,

THE BRONX HOUSE HOLD OF

FAITH SUED THE CITY OVER A

POLICY PREVENTING CHURCHES

FROM HOLDINGç SERVICES INç

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

ONE IS WONDERING WHY NEW

YORK CITY WOULD WANT TO

FORCE CHURCHES OUT OF PUBLIC

SCHOOLS.

PASTOR DIMUS SAYS HOMOSEXUAL

ACTIVISTS ARE BEHIND THE

PUSH.

IT IS QUITE EVIDENT THAT

THE L.B.G.T. STOOD UP

AGAINST THE CHURCH AND SAID

YOU ARE PREACHING A DOCTRINE

THAT IS AGAINST GAY

MARRIAGE, AND THAT'Sç WHY

WE'REç COMING AGAINST YOU

GUYS.

WE DON'T WANT YOU TO HAVE

CHURCHES IN SCHOOLS.

WE'RE COMING AGAINST YOU.

Reporter: CHURCHES THAT

HOLD SERVICES IN PUBLIC

SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY

CENTERS JUST LIKE THIS ALL

ACROSS NEW YORK CITY SAY THE

MINISTRY THEY OFFER IS

CHANGING LIVES, AND THEY ARE

PREPARED TO CONTINUE THE

FIGHT.

WE CLOSED DOWN THE GANGS

IN THAT AREA.

WE SHUT DOWN DRUG

OPERATIONS.

GOD IS MOVING IN THE BRONX.

HE IS MOVINGç THROUGHç

AFFINITY CHURCH.

IT IS JUST GREAT PEOPLE THAT

LOVE JESUS.

AND THEY JUST HAVE WILD,

RADICAL FAITH TO SEE GOD DO

SOME AMAZING THINGS.

Reporter: THEY HOPE

THAT INCLUDES VICTORY FOR

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

PAT, THOSE CHURCHES ARE

DOING A LOT OF GOOD THERE

FOR THEIR COMMUNITIES.

Pat: THEY ARE.

THOSEç ACTIVISTSç DON'T CARE

HOW MUCH GOOD YOU DO.

YOU JUST GO ALONG WITH THEIR

WAY OF LIFE.

IF YOU DON'T, YOU'RE OUT.

THE LAW WAS -- THERE IS A

COURSE CALLED "LAMB'S

CHAPEL" AND IT WAS LITIGATED

BY THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE.

AND IT WAS A RESOUNDING

VICTORY BEFORE THE SUPREME

COURT.

HERE IS THE DEAL: IF THEç

SCHOOL HASç AN OPEN FORUM, IN

OTHER WORDS IF THE LION'S

CLUB CAN HAVE A MEETING

THERE, AND IF THE BOY SCOUTS

CAN MEET THERE AND THE GIRL

SCOUTS AND ON AND ON, IF

THERE IS AN OPEN FORUM, THEY

CANNOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST

A BIBLE CLUB OR CHURCH FROM

USING THOSE FACILITIES.

THAT WAS A LANDMARK

DECISION.

THE SECONDç CIRCUIT M

NOTORIOUSLY LEFT WING.

I WENT TO THE YALE LAW

SCHOOL, AND I KNOW WHO THEY

ARE AND WHAT THEY DO.

AND THEY GO AGAINST THE

PREVAILING MOOD OF THE

COUNTRY.

BUT THEY DON'T CARE BECAUSE

THEY'RE LEFT-WING IDLEOGS --

NOT ALL OF THEM, BUT SOME OF

THEM ARE.

AND THIS DECISION REFLECTS

OF THAT MINDSET.

AND THE CHURCHES DO ANç

ENORMOUS

OF

GOOD,

ESPECIALLY IN THE INNER CITY

NEIGHBORHOODS.

THEY GIVE HOPE, THEY GIVE

FOOD.

THEY GIVE COUNSELLING FOR

UNWED MOTHERS.

IT GOES ON AND ON, THE GOOD

THEY DO.

BUT TO THE -- WELL, THE

LEFT-WINGERS, THEY DON'T

CARE.

THEY DON'T LIKE RELIGION.

JOHN?

PAT, IRAN'S NEW

SELF-PROCLAIMED MODERATE

PRESIDENT HAS DONE NOTHING

TO HELP THEç PERSECUTEDç

CHRISTIANS IN HIS COUNTRY.

ACCORDING TO A NEW REPORT,

CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES ARE

MORE PERSECUTED THAN OTHER.

AT LEAST 490 CHRISTIANS ARE

HELD IN IRANIAN PRISONS.

AND SAEED ABEDINI IS SERVING

AN EIGHT-YEAR SENTENCE FOR

CRIMES LEELTED T RELATED TO

HIS FAITH.

THE AMERICAN PASTOR HAS BEENç

JCiFOR 18 MONTHS.

HE RECENTLY WAS TRANSFERRED

TO AN IRANIAN HOSPITAL TO BE

TREATED FOR INJURIES HE

SUFFERED WHILE IN PRISON.

HIS WIFE, NAGHMEH, TOLD

FAITH RADIO THAT HER HUSBAND

IS FINALLY BEING GIVEN

DECENT MEALS AND PAIN

MEDICATION, BUT SHE SAYS HE

NEEDS SURGERY.

PASTOR SAEED WAS VISITING

IRAN TO START AN ORPHANAGE

WHEN THEY ARRESTED HIM.

TO FINDç OUT MOREç ABOUT WHAT

YOU CAN DO TO HELP HIM, GO

CBN.COM.

THE JEWISH STATE AGREED LAST

YEAR TO RELEASE 104

PALESTINIAN TERRORISTS IN

FOUR STAGES AS AN INCENTIVE

TO KEEP THE MIDEAST PEACE

TALKS COMING.

IT COMES AFTER THE

PALESTINIANS RENEWED THEIR

TALKS FOR MEMBERSHIP IN THE

UNITED NATIONS.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY IS URGINGç BOTH SIDESç

NOT TO ABANDON THE PEACE

PROCESS.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, I SAID

IT YESTERDAY, AND I'LL SAY

IT AGAIN TODAY, KIMERA, IT

IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

IT IS A FANTASY.

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

REALLY DOESN'T SPEAK FOR THE

PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.

HAMAS IS MORE OF A FORCE

THAN THE P.A., AND HAMAS

WANTS THE DESTRUCTION OFç

ISRAEL.

STATES LIVING SIDE BY SIDE

IS JUST NOT GOING TO

HAPPEN.

WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN IS THE

PALESTINIANS SHOULD GO BACK

UNDER JORDANIAN LAW, WHERE

THEY WERE BEFORE, AND THEY

WERE TREATED FAIRLY AND

WELL.

THE IDEA OF A SEPARATE STATE

TAKING OVER THE WEST BANK,

TAKING OVER HALF OF

JERUSALEM, IT JUST ISN'T

GOING TO HAPPEN.

IT IS A VIOMQTION OF THEç

BIBLE.

IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES THAT

GOD LAID DOWN IN HIS WORD.

AND WHENEVER A COUNTRY SETS

OUT TO SET ITSELF AGAINST

GOD'S WORD, IT GETS IN

TROUBLE.

AND WE'RE GOING TO BE IN

TROUBLE IF WE KEEP PUSHING

THIS NONSENSE.

JOHN?

PAT, MORE FALLOUT FROM

OBAMACARE.

IT USED TO BE YOU COULD BUY

HEALTH INSURANCE AT ANY TIMEç

DURING THEç YEAR.

BUT NOT NOW.

MANY WHO DIDN'T SIGN UP

DURING THE OBAMACARE OPEN

ENROLLMENT PERIOD WILL FIND

IT IMPOSSIBLE TO BUY

INSURANCE NOW.

THAT'S BECAUSE INSURERS ARE

REFUSING TO SELL TO

INDIVIDUALS AFTER THE

ENROLLMENT PERIOD ENDED.

BLOCKING OUT THE YOUNG AND

HEALTHY, AS WELL AS THE SICK

AND ELDERLY.

SOME STATES ARE EXTENDING

THEIR DEADLINES TO HELP

THOSE WHO HAD PROBLEMS

TRYING TO MEET THIS WEEK'SjDQTT(Q&INE.

THE RESTç WILL HAVE TO WAIT

UNTIL THE NEXT OPEN

ENROLLMENT PERIOD, WHICH

DOESN'T START UNTIL

NOVEMBER.

IF YOU'RE LIKE MOST

AMERICANS, YOU'RE DOING ONE

OF THE BEST AND EASIEST

THINGS TO KEEP HEALTHY:

GETTING ENOUGH VITAMIN "D."

IT IS CRUCIAL FOR FIGHTING

DISEASE, AND AS LORI JOHNSON

TELLS US, IF YOU DON'T GET

ENOUGH, IT CAN BE TRULY

HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH.

Lori: VITAMIN "D," WE

GET IT FROM THE SUN, FROM

SOME FOODS, AND FROM

SUPPLEMENTS.

AVAILABILITY, AN ESTIMATED

TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICANS

AREN'T GETTING ENOUGH, AND

THAT SPELLS REAL TROUBLE.

A MAJOR NEW STUDY OF NEARLY

A MILLION PEOPLE FIEPPEDZ

FINDS THE LOWER YOUR VITAMIN

"D" LEVELS, THE HIGHER YOUR

RISK FOR CERTAIN DISEASES,

INCLUDING A 35% INCREASED

RISK OF DEATH FROM HEART

DISEASE AND A 14%ç INCREASEDç

RISK OF DEATH FROM CANCER.

VITAMIN "D" IS NICKNAMED THE

SUNSHINE NUTRIENT BECAUSE

OUR BODIES ACTUALLY PRODUCE

IT WHEN OUR SKIN IS EXPOSED

TO SUNLIGHT.

TO GET ENOUGH VITAMIN "D"

FROM THE SUN, DOCTORS

RECOMMEND EXPOSING AS MUCH

UNPROTECTED SKIN AS

POSSIBLE, SO NO SUNSCREEN,

SPREAD OUT OVER JUST AN HOUR

OR TWO A WEEK.

TO PROTECT AGAINST SKIN

CANCER, MAKE SUREç YOUç DON'T

OVERDO YOUR SUN EXPOSURE.

IF YOUR SKIN TURNS PINK,

YOU'VE BEEN OUT TOO LONG.

IF YOU CAN'T, OR DON'T WANT

TO, GET YOUR VITAMIN "D"

FROM THE SUN, SOME FOODS ARE

RICH IN IT, SUCH AS SALMON,

MUSHROOMS, FORTIFIED DAIRY,

AND KALE.

BUT EVEN THEY MIGHT NOT

CONTAIN ALL THE "D" YOU

NEED.

FOOD SOURCES ARE REALLY

LIMITED, SO IT IS BEST FOR

MOST PEOPLE TO TAKE Açç

SUPPLEMENT.

Lori: CHOOSE VITAMIN

D3, IT IMPROVES YOUR IMMUNE

SYSTEM, BOOSTS YOUR MOOD,

AND SINCE YOU NEED IT TO

ABSORB CALCIUM, IT

STRENGTHENS YOUR BONES.

BUT CERTAIN THINGS LOWER IT

FROM YOUR SYSTEM, SUCH AS

SMOKING, OBESITY, AND

IMFLAMMATION, WHICH COMES

FROM THINGS LIKEçç EATING TOO

MUCH SUGAR AND TRANS-FATS.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

AND, PAT, I'M ONE OF

THOSE WHO TAKES A DAILY

VITAMIN "D" SUPPLEMENT.

Pat: THAT'S WHY YOU'RE

SO HEALTHY.

WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT

THIS FOR A LONG TIME.

THERE IS AN INCREASED

INCIDENCE OF INFLUENZA,

COLDS, AND THINGS LIKE THAT

IN THE MIDWEST STATES, THAT

HAVE RATHER SEVEREç WINTERS

AND LACKç OF SUNLIGHT.

IF THEY DON'T GET OUT IN THE

SUN, THEY HAVE A PROBLEM.

IT IS SO EASY TO TAKE THE

VITAMIN "D" PILLS.

THEY DON'T HURT ANYBODY.

YOU CAN TAKE TWO OR THREE OF

THEM OR 10 OR 15 OF THEM.

Terry: DOES YOUR BODY

JUST GET RID OF WHATEVER IT

DOESN'T NEED?

Pat: IF YOU GET OUT IN

THE SUN, YOU CAN GET 100,000

UNITS OF VITAMIN "D" IF YOU

SIT IN THE SUN LONG ENOUGH.

ITç IS ONEç OF THOSE THINGS

THAT IS VERY HEALTHY.

I WANT TO ASK YOU A

QUESTION, MS. TERRY.

Terry: YES.

Pat: I GAVE YOU

SOMETHING YESTERDAY.

Terry: YOU DID.

I KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO ASK

ME THAT.

Pat: ARE YOU PREPARED

FOR THE ANSWER?

Terry: YOU EXPLAINED IT

SO WELL, I HAD PEOPLE COMING

BY MY OFFICE, AND THEY ALL

WANTED TO WRITE DOWN WHAT IT

WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE

INTERESTED IN IT.

SO Iç LEFTç IT ON THE DESK

OUTSIDE MY OFFICE.

I'M SURE IT IS STILL THERE,

AND I'LL GIVE YOU A REPORT

ON MONDAY.

Pat: IT WON'T HELP YOU

SITTING ON YOUR DESK.

I WANTED YOU TO HAVE HEALTH,

HAPPINESS, AND LOSE

WEIGHT --

Terry: I'M GOING TO DO

OVER THE WEEKEND.

Pat: -- AND LIVE TO BE

120.

Terry: I'LL GIVE YOU

THE REPORT ON MONDAY.

Pat: DARKç CHOCOLATE.¿

IT'S WONDERFUL.

BUT NOT MILK CHOCOLATE.

THAT WAS 88%, PRETTY HEAVY.

Terry: I SAW THAT.

Pat: THAT IS HEAVY-DUTY

DARK CHOCOLATE.

Terry: I WILL GIVE YOU

THE REPORT ON MONDAY.

YOU'LL PROBABLY WANT TO KNOW

IF IT WAS TOO BITTER OR

SWALLOWABLE.

Pat: WE'LL BOTH BE

DANCING ON THIS DESK AT

120.

Terry: THAT'S A DEAL.

COMING UP, SOMETHING

SERIOUS:ç JOURNALISTSç THROWN

IN JAIL, TWITTER AND

YouTube SHUT DOWN.

FIND OUT WHICH NATO COUNTRY

IS GETTING INTO BED WITH

TERRORISTS WHEN WE COME

BACK.

çççç

çç

Pat: WELL, SOMETIME

AGO, HE USED TO BE CALLED

THE SIXTH PART OF EUROPE.

AND ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS

TOOK PLACE AROUND THAT AREA,

THE CONSTANINOBLE.

THEY HAD A SON THAT ISTANBUL

ISçç NOT CONSTANINOBLE, DO YOU

REMEMBER THAT SONG?

Terry: I DON'T.

Pat: IT IS A GREAT SONG

IF YOU'RE IN A PREVIOUS

GENERATION.

IN ANY EVENT, WE CONSIDERED

UTHE TURKS OUR FRIENDS.

I WAS IN THE MARINES IN

KOREA, AND THE TURKISH

GROUPS WE ADMIRE.

THEY WERE SOMETHING.

THE CHINESE AND THE KOREANS

WEREN'T TOO THRILLED ABOUT

GETTING THEIR THROATS CUT IN

BATTLE, AnDç THESE TURKSç HAD

LONG KNIVES, AND THEY WOULD

YELL IN KOREAN OR CHINESE,

"I'M GOING TO CUT YOUR

THROAT WITH A SHARP KNIFE,"

AND THEY TERRIFIED THESE

PEOPLE.

WE HAVE CONSIDERED THEM ONE

OF OUR STRONGEST ALLIES, BUT

TURKEY HAS TAKEN A PROFOUND

TURN TOWARDS RADICAL ISLAM.

IT WAS A SECULAR COUNTRY,ç

ANDç AFTER THE 1920s, IT

WAS ONE OF OUR STROPGHT

STRONGEST ALLIES, BUT TURKEY

IS NOW MOVING IN A VERY

DIFFERENT DIRECTION.

AND WE HAVE THAT REPORT FROM

OUR ISLAMIC EXPERT, ERICK

STAKELBECK.

Reporter: JOURNALISTS

THROWN IN JAIL, TWITTER AND

YouTube SHUT DOWN.T-YOLITICALç OPPONENTS

THREATENED WITH

PROSECUTION.

IT'S THE KIND OF REPRESSION

USUALLY FOUND IN PLACES LIKE

IRAN AND SYRIA.

ONLY IT'S HAPPENING IN A

NATO COUNTRY, WITH

ASPIRATIONS OF JOINING THE

EUROPEAN UNION.

UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF

PRIME MINISTER RECEP, TURKEY

HAS MADE CLEAR IT IS SETTING

A NEW COURSE, ONE THAT COULD

PUT IT ON A COLLISION COURSE

WITH THE WEST.

çç THE A.K.P. IS A SPIN OFF

OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

THIS IS AN ORGANIZATION THAT

IS FOUNDED IN ISLAMIST

PRINCIPLES.

Reporter: JONATHAN

CHANCER IS WITH THE

FOUNDATION FOR THE DEFENSE

OF DEMOCRACIES.

HE CALLS ERDOGAN'S PATH AS A

DOWNWARD SPIRAL.

HE RECENTLYç WROTEç AN

EXTENSIVE REPORT, OUTLINING

TURKEY'S ROLE IN SUPPORTING

ISLAM.

ALTHOUGH DESIGNATED A TERROR

ORGANIZATION BY THE UNITED

STATES, HAMAS LEADERS

REGULARLY MEET WITH ERDOGAN.

SHANSR SAYS THAT INCLUDES

SALI AL-ARAI.

HE HAS MET WITHç ERDOGAN

ANDç MET WITH MICHEL, AND HE

CONTINUES TO APPARENTLY BE

INVOLVED IN FUNDRAISING

LOGISTICS.

Reporter: THE GROUP IS

COMMITTED TO ISRAEL'S

DESTRUCTION, AND ALIGNS WITH

ITS OWN FIERY ANTI-ISRAEL

STANCE.

HE HAS CALLED SHARON PERES A

MURDERER, AND IN 2010

ALLOWED A FLOTILLA OF SHIPS

TO FLOWç TO TURKEY.ç

AND VIOLENCE BROKE OUT WHEN

TERRORISTS ABOARD ONE OF

THOSE SHIPS ATTACKED ISRAELI

SOLDIERS.

SINCE THAT INCIDENT,

RELATIONS BETWEEN TURKEY AND

ISRAEL HAVE BEEN SEVERELY

STRAINED, WITH ERDOGAN EVEN

VOWING TO VISIT GAZA TO MEET

WITH HAMAS LEADERS.

AND HAMAS ISN'T THE ONLY

QUESTIONABLY FRIEND OF

TURKEY.

ACCORDING TO CHANCER,çç

al-QAEDA, A U.S. DESIGNATED

GLOBAL TERRORIST, HAS

VISITED THE COUNTRY

PREVIOUSLY.

WE ARE SEEING REPORTS HAY

HE HAS BEEN MEETING WITH

TURKISH OFFICIALS.

AND HE IS TRAVELLING IN AND

OUT OF TURKEY WITHOUT A

PASSPORT.

Reporter: IT IS A

TRANSIT POINT FOR GLOBAL

JIHADISTS TRAVELLING TO

SYRIA TO BATTLE THE ASSAD

REGIME.

çç THERE ARE THOSE IN THE

SOUTHEASTERN PART OF SYRIA

THAT APPEAR TO BE SAFE

HAVENS FOR JIHADI.

WE UNDERSTAND THEY ARE

OPERATING IN HOTELS,

DISPERSING CASH TO SOME OF

THESE JIHADIS AS THEY TRAVEL

THROUGH.

Reporter: THESE

ACTIVITIES HAVE GOTTEN THE

ATTENTION OF U.S.

OFFICIALS.

WE HAVE SENT SECRETARYç

COHENç TO TURKEY, AND YOU

DON'T VISIT UNLESS THERE IS

A PROBLEM.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA HAS ENJOYED A CLOSE

RELATIONSHIP WITH ERDOGAN.

YET THE TURKISH PRIME

MINISTER'S RADICAL TURNS HAS

LED CONGRESS AND FOREIGN

POLICY MEMBERS TO HOLD

ERDOGAN ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS

ANTI-DEMOCRATIC ACTS.

AND ERDOGAN PUT DOWN78P&C @&Cú

ANTI-GOVERNMENTç PROTESTS IN

ISTANBUL LAST YEAR.

HE ALSO RECENTLY SHUT DOWN

YouTube AND TWITTER,

AFTER POLITICAL OPPONENTS

POSTED A SERIES OF

RECORDINGS CLAIMING TO

EXPOSE ERDOGAN'S

CORRUPTION.

SUCH MEASURES ARE UNHEARD OF

IN ANY OTHER NATO COUNTRY

TODAY.

THEY'VE GOT EARLY WARNING

RADAR SYSTEMS IN TURKEY,

WE'VE GOT MASSIVE AIR BASES

AND INVESTMENTS, AND LOOñ

MOREç BROADLY, THE TURKS HAVE

SERVED AS AN IMPORTANT ALLY

FOR US.

IF WE LOSE THAT, I THINK IT

WOULD BE REALLY DETRIMENTAL

TO U.S. FOREIGN POLICY.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

ERDOGAN DENIES ANY

WRONG-DOING, CORRUPTION

CHARGES CONTINUE TO SURROUND

HIS GOVERNMENT.

AMONG THE ALLEGED IS A

MULTI-BILLION GAS FOR GOLD

SCHEME, IN WHICH TURKEY

HELPED IRAN EVADE SANCTIONS

OVER ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM.ç

WASHINGTON.

Pat: I WANT TO POINT

OUT FROM A SPIRITUAL

STANDPOINT, WE HAVE A VERY

STRONG MINISTRY IN TURKEY.

AND WE'RE THRILLED WITH THE

RESPONSE OF THE TURKISH

PEOPLE.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY, MANY

CHRISTIANS.

AND YOU GO INTO THAT AREA,

AND THIS WAS WHEN PAUL --

NOT PAUL, BUT JOHN, IN

REVELATION WROTE TO THE

CHURCHES OF ASIA.

HE ISçç TALKING ABOUT TURKEY.

THAT'S WHERE THOSE CHURCHES

WERE.

THEY WERE IN THAT AREA.

AND SO WE REALLY NEED TO

PRAY FOR THE CHRISTIANS

THERE.

BUT, TERRY, YOU LOOK AT A

PROPHECY, EZEKIEL 38, AND

YOU KNOW THERE IS A

COALITION THAT IS GOING TO

COME AGAINST ISRAEL IN THE

LAST DAYS.

YOU'VE SEEN THAT?

Terry: YES.2

Pat:ç IT SAYS PERSIA,

AND WE KNOW WHO THEY WERE.

AND IT TALKS ABOUT WHAT WE

CONSIDERED TO BE RUSSIA,

ROSH, AND THAT MEANS HEAD,

AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE

RUSSIANS.

BUT THERE IS ONE CALLED

GOMER.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE SAID

GOMER WAS GERMANY.

REALLY, WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT,

GOMER IS MOST LIKELY

TURKEY.

AND SO THE CHANCES OF THEM

BEING IN THAT COALITION

AGAINST ISPa1 AREç VERY

STRONG.

SO WE KNOW IRAN, WHAT THEIR

HEART IS AND WHERE THEY COME

FROM, AND WE CERTAINLY KNOW

WHAT RUSSIAN IS DOING UNDER

THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION,

WHAT THEY FEEL.

AND THEN THEY'RE TALKING

ABOUT THE SUDAN.

AND THERE ARE SOME RADICAL

ELEMENTS DOWN THERE.

SO YOU COULD EASILY SEE A

COALITION AGAINST ISRAEL,

BUT GOMER WOULDç BDç

INCLUDED.

AND THEN THERE IS A MATTER

OF THE KURDS.

AND SOONER OR LATER THE

KURDS IN SYRIA, AND THE

KURDS IN IRAQ ARE GOING TO

COME TOGETHER AND FORM A

STATE.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE TURKS

ARE VERY AFRAID OF, SO THEY

PERSECUTED THE KURDS.

THERE IS A LOT OF STUFF THAT

GOES ON IN THE MIDDLE EAST,

BUT THE BIBLE PROPHECIES ARE

GOING TO COME TO PASS.

AND I JUST HOPE AND PRAY

THAT TURKEY IS NOT PART OFç

LIKE IT SAYS IT IN EZEKIEL.

GET YOUR OLD TESTAMENT AND

READ IT.

Terry: THAT'S WHY A

STRONG LEADERSHIP AND THE

UNDERSTANDING OF FOREIGN

POLICY IS SO SIGNIFICANT.

Pat: AGAIN, THE MAN WHO

LED THE REVOLUTION AGAINST

THE CORRUPT REGIME, AND THE

OLD OTTOMANç EMPIRE WASç

FALLING.

AND THE OTTOMANS WERE VERY,

VERY POWERFUL.

THERE WAS A SECOND

GOVERNMENT IN THE '20s,

AND THEY SAID WE'RE NOT

ISLAMIC, BE THE PEOPLE ARE

FREE TO WORSHIP GOD AWAY

THEY WANT TO.

AND AS A RESULT, TURKEY

PROSPERED.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ERDOGAN IS

DOING, BUT HE HEEM SEEMS TO

HAVE TILTED TOWARDS THE

BROTHERHOOD, ANDçç THAT IS BAD

NEWS.

Terry: AN EXPECTANT MOM

SUDDENLY GETS HIT WITH

SEARING PAIN.

IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE HAD

TAKEN A KNIFE AND HAD

STABBED ME IN MY STOMACH.

IT IMMEDIATELY CAUSED ME TO

DROP TO MY KNEES IN PAIN.

I NEVER FELT PAIN LIKE THAT

BEFORE.

Terry: HER BABY IS

SAVED, BUT HER LIFE HANGS IN

THE BALANCE.

THAT'S COMING UP.

çççççççç

çç

Pat: ONE MORE PLUG FOR

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

IT HAS BEEN NAMED THE

ONLINE -- ONE OF THE TOP 10

ONLINE SCH]OLS IN AMERICA.ç

TREMENDOUS PROGRAMS YOU CAN

GET ONLINE.

AND YOU CAN GET A MASTER'S

DEGREE, A DOCTORAL DEGREE.

WE HAVE 58 OR 59 PROGRAMS.

AND WE HAVE, FROM REGENT,

OVER 30 JUDGES AND

LEGISLATORS, MILITARY

OFFICERS ANDçç DIPLOMATS.

CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP TO

CHANGE THE WORLD.

HERE ARE THE NUMBERS ON YOUR

SCREEN.

YOU CAN CALL THAT NUMBER.

THE NUMBER FOR REGENT IS --

WHAT IS THAT NUMBER.

Terry: 1-800-210-0060.

Pat: THAT'S IT.

OR YOU CAN GO TO

REGENT.EDU.

NOW IS THE TIME TO ENROLL

FOR THE NEXT FALL OR THE

SUMMER.

ITçç IS VERY FLEXIBLE.

Terry: AND THE CAMPUS

IS BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: IT IS A BEAUTIFUL

CAMPUS.

Terry: TREVA GORDAN

WENT THROUGH TWO PREGNANCIES

WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS AS

ALL.

SHE HAD NEVER BEEN SICK A

DAY IN HER LIFE UNTIL JUST

WEEKS BEFORE HER THIRD CHILD

WAS DUE.

WHEN SUDDENLY SHE FELT A

STAB OF EXCRUCIATING PAIN.

I WAS FIGHTING FOR MY

LIFE.

AND I WASç AFRAID.ç

HOW COULD I GO FROM FEELING

WONDERFUL TO ALL OF A SUDDEN

HOLD ON, FIGHT FOR YOUR

LIFE, BE STRONG.

Reporter: TREVA GORDON

WAS PREGNANT WITH HER THIRD

CHILD, A GIRL.

BUT ALL OF HER HOPES AND

DREAMS FOR HER UNBORN

DAUGHTER TURNED TO FEAR, 37

WEEKS INTO HER PREGNANCY.

THAT EVENING WE WERE

WATCHING TELEVISION, HAVING

A WONDERFUL TIME, AND ALL OF

A SUDDEN Iç EXPERIENCED A

PAIN IN MY STOMACH LIKE

NEVER BEFORE.

IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE HAD

TAKEN A KNIFE AND HAD

STABBED ME IN MY STOMACH.

AND IT IMMEDIATELY CAUSED ME

TO DROP TO MY KNEES IN

PAIN.

MY SON, HE RAN ACROSS THE

STREET TO GET THE NEIGHBOR.

AND THE NEIGHBOR CAME.

AND SHE FOUND ME ON THE

FLOOR.

I HAD NEVER FELT PAIN LIKE

THAT BEFORE.

Reporter: TREVA WAS

RUSHED TO A LOCAL HOSPITAL

WHEREç DOCTORSç DIAGNOSED

SEVERE TOXEMIA AND SEVERAL

OTHER SERIOUS CONDITION.

SHE WAS VERY CLOSE TO

DEATH.

HER LIVER HEMATOMA WAS

EXTREMELY LARGE.

IT COULD HAVE RUPTURED AT

ANY TIME.

WHEN THEY DO RUPTURE, THE

MORTALITY FOR THAT EVENT IS

EXTREMELY HIGH.

Reporter: TREVA'Sç

HUSBAND,ç ROBERT, WAS

RECALLED FROM MILITARY

SERVICE IN IRAQ TO BE WITH

HER.

I WAS ON A PLANE,

LEAVING, WITHIN HOURS.

YOU WANT TO PRAY.

Reporter: TREVA'S LIVER

AND KIDNEYS WERE SHUTTING

DOWN.

DOCTORS PERFORMED AN

EMERGENCY C-SECTION TO SAVE

TREVA'S BABY, BUT TREVA'S

LIFE HUNG IN THE BALANCE.

AFTER TWO DAYS IN INTENSIVE

CARE, WITH NO SIGNS OFç

IMPROVEMENT,ç SHE WAS

LIFE-FLIGHTED TO VANDERBILT

HOSPITAL IN NASHVILLE.

IT SEEMED AS IF THERE WAS

A LOT OF CHAOS IN THE ROOM,

TRYING TO GET MY KIDNEY

FUNCTIONS REVIVED AND

WORKING AND MY LIVER

FUNCTIONS WORKING.

AND ALL I COULD DO WAS JUST

LIE THERE AND PRAY.

I SAID, GOD, HELP ME.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON

WITH ME.

I'VE NEVER BEENç SICK A DAY

HOW DID I GO FROM FEELING

WONDERFUL TO THIS?

Reporter: TREVA WAS

PLACED ON A DIALYSIS MACHINE

AND SPENT SEVERAL MORE DAYS

IN THE HOSPITAL, IN AND OUT

OF CONSCIOUSNESS.

FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CHURCH

MEMBERS GATHERED IN PRAYER

FOR HER SURVIVAL.

TREVA SAYS SHE HAD VISIONS

THAT DEATH WAS WAITING

ACROSS THEç HALL.ç

PRAYER IS WHAT PREVENTED

DEATH FROM COMING OVER TO

TAKE ME.

AND HE COULD NOT CROSS

BECAUSE OF THIS WHITE

LIGHT.

HE SAID AS SOON AS THIS

TRAFFIC OF LIGHT STOPS, I'M

GOING TO COME ACROSS THIS

ROOM AND I'M GOING TO TAKE

YOU.

AND I WAS SO FEARFUL.

AND I JUST KEPT SAYING, I

DON'T WANT TO DIE.

I DON'T WANT TO DIE.

WHEN I WALKED IN, IT WAS

A VERY DESPERATE SITUATION.

THEç DOCTORSç HAD BASICALLY

GIVEN UP ON HER.

THAT'S WHEN I REALIZED THAT

THIS WAS A BREAKING MOMENT

FOR HER.

WHEN I APPROACHED HER BED, I

JUST FELT LIKE THE LORD

TELLING ME, GO AHEAD AND LAY

HANDS ON HER.

YOU DO WHAT YOU'RE CALLED TO

DO, AND LET ME DO WHAT I'M

HERE TO DO.

WHEN I ACTUALLY WOKE UP,

AND I COULD REALLY SEE MY

PASTOR WAS STANDING THERE IN

THE E.R. ROOM, I WAS SO GLAD

TO SEE HIM.

AND HE WAS PRAYING OVER ME.ç

P

GOD, THAT GOD DIDN'T FORGET

ABOUT ME.

AND I WAS STILL FIGHTING FOR

MY LIFE, BUT I THANK GOD FOR

THE PRAYERS.

Reporter: TREVA SLOWLY

BEGAN TO HEAL.

HER DOCTORS TOLD HER SHE WAS

FORTUNATE TO BE ALIVE,

CONSIDERING THE SEVERITY OF

HER CONDITION WHEN SHE

ARRIVED.

THEYç SAID,ç MANY WOMEN

COME TO THE HOSPITAL IN THE

CONDITION YOU'RE IN, AND

WITHIN FIVE MINUTES OF BEING

IN THAT CONDITION, THEY DIE

RIGHT THERE ON THE TABLE.

AND FOR YOU TO HAVE SURVIVED

, IT'S A MIRACLE.

I THANK GOD FOR JUST BEING

MY DOCTOR IN THE SICK ROOM

AT THAT HOSPITAL.

I DON'T KNOW WHY HE ALLOWEDç

ME TOç LIVE, BUT HE DID.

Reporter: AFTER TWO

WEEKS IN THE HOSPITAL, TREVA

WAS SENT HOME FOR MONTHS OF

BED REST AND KIDNEY

DIALYSIS.

I KNEW I HAD TO FIGHT.

I KNEW OTHERS WERE FIGHTING

FOR ME, BUT I HAD TO PRAY.

I BEGAN TO READ THE WORD OF

GOD AND TO STAND ON HIS

PROMISES.

I READ EVERY SCRIPTURE ABOUTT-AEALING, AND Iç TOOK THAT

IN.

HE SAYS, BY HIS STRIPES I AM

HEALED.

I SURROUNDED MYSELF WITH THE

WORD OF GOD.

I BECAME STRONG.

GOD SAYS, LET THE WEAK SAY

THAT I AM STRONG.

I BEGAN TO SAY, GREATER IS

HE WHO IS IN ME THAN HE WHO

IS IN THE WORLD.

AND I FELT THE STRENGTH OF

GOD COME.

Reporter: TODAY TREVA

IS HEALED AND HEALTHY.

SHE SAYS IT WAS GOD WHO

BROUGHT HER THROUGH.

HER DAUGHTER, ROBIN, ç A

PERFECTLY HEALTHY LITTLE

GIRL.

GOD RESTORED MY ORGANS,

MY KIDNEYS, AND HE RESTORED

MY LIVER FUNCTIONS.

NO MORE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,

HYPERTENSION.

NONE OF THAT.

I AM HEALED TODAY.

I AM A MIRACLE.

FOR WHATEVER THE

SITUATION IS, TRUST GOD AND

BELIEVE GOD FOR IT.

BELIEVE GOD FOR IT.

IT MAY NOT HAPPEN ON THAT

DATE WHEN YOU WANT IT TO

HAPPEN, BUT CONTINUE TOç

BELIEVE GODç AND TRUST IN

GOD, AND GOD WILL PULL YOU

THROUGH IT.

WE ARE VERY STRONG IN OUR

FAITH, AND I THINK IT PLAYED

A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN HER

HEALING.

SHE HAD A LOT TO LIVE FOR.

I WILL NEVER BE ASHAMED

TO TELL WHAT GOD HAS DONE

FOR ME BECAUSE HE HAS SET ME

FREE.

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN SIX FEET

UNDER, BUT NOW I'M TAKING

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

AND I'LL TELL IT WHEREVERç I

CAN TELL IT, THAT GOD IS

GOOD.

Terry: YOU KNOW, WHEN

GOD DOES SOMETHING AMAZING

IN YOUR LIFE LIKE THAT, YOU?

DO TELL IT WHEREVER YOU GO.

Pat: DEATH SAID, I'M

GOING TO WALK ACROSS THE

ROOM ONCE THAT LIGHT IS OUT

OF THE WAY -- AMAZING.

Terry: IT SAYS TO ALL

OF US, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY.

Pat: THAT LIGHT WAS

JESUS' LIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS

AMAZING.

APPROXIMATELY 20 YEARSçç AGO,

A PERSON FROM CHARLESTON,

WEST VIRGINIA TECH, WAS

DIAGNOSED WHY HIGH BLOOD

PRESSURE, AND OCCASIONALLY

WENT UP TO 300.

THREE MONTHS AGO, SHE WAS

HOSPITALIZED WHEN THE

PRESSURE EXCEEDED 200.

IT REMAINED OUT OF CONTROL.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND, PAT, SHE HEARD

YOU PRAY A GENERAL PRAYER

FOR ANYONE DESIRING

HEALING.

IMMEDIATELY SHE SEIZED THEç

OPPORTUNITY TOç PRAY ALONG

WITH YOU.

SHE CLAIMED HEALING FOR HER

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.

SEVERAL HOURS LATER WHEN SHE

CHECKED HER BLOOD PRESSURE,

SHE WAS AMAZED TO SEE IT IN

A NORMAL RANGE, 120 OVER

80.

SHE WEANED HERSELF OFF OF

THE MEDICATION AND IS

PRAISING GOD FOR HER

HEALING.

Pat: THIS IS SHERRY,

FROM TEXAS, AND SHE HAD HIP

PAIN.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM.ç

TERRY HADç A WORD.

SOMEONE WITH A HIP ISSUE,

IT'S LIKE YOUR HIP POPS OUT

OF THE SOCKET AND YOU NEVER

KNOW WHEN IT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

IT IS VERY PAINFUL.

GOD IS DOING A CREATIVE

MIRACLE.

SHERRY SAYS, THAT'S ME, AND

SHE STARTED DANCING THE

HULA.

AND SHE WAS HEALED.

Terry: PRAISE THE

LORD.

Pat: WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU, FOLKS.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS

SOMETHING GOOD FORçç YOU.

WELL, OKAY, TODAY COULD BE

THE DAY THAT SOMETHING

REALLY GOOD COULD HAPPEN TO

YOU.

THIS IS THE LORD.

THIS IS THE LORD ALMIGHTY.

AND WE'RE GOING TO APPROACH

HIM IN YOUR BEHALF.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

SO WOULD YOU PLEASE COME

WITH US NOW TO THE THRONE OF

GRACE.

LET'S STAND BEFORE THE ALLçç

ALMIGHTY GOD.

TERRY AND I WILL JOIN HANDS

TOGETHER IN JESUS' NAME.

WE JOIN HANDS, LORD, ON

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

Pat: SOMEBODY WHO HAS

A.L.S., LATERAL SCLEROSIS,

LOU GEHRIG'S DISEASE, IT

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

BUT IT IS LIKE THE

ELECTRICAL IMPULSES IN YOUR

BODY ARE ALL OFF.

THEY'RE JUST OUT OF WHACK.

GOD ISç PUTTINGç THAT ALL BACK

TOGETHER, AND THE SYMPTOMS

YOU'VE EXPERIENCED ARE GOING

TO BE GONE.

Pat: LORD, PEOPLE ARE

THINGS FOR THEIR FAMILIES,

POWER OF A HALF HOUR.ç&

MEGA CHURCH PASTOR AND

AUTHOR TOMMY BARNETT SHOWS

YOU HOW TO TAKE CHARGE COPY

OF YOUR DESTINY 30 MINUTES

AT A TIME.

WELCOME

BACK

TO "THE 700

CLUB."

A PAKISTAN COURT SENTENCED A

CHRISTIAN MAN TO DEATH FOR

BLASPHEMY.

LAST MARCH IN THE CITY OF LA

HORE, A MUSLIM MAN ACCUSED

THIS MAN OF INSULTING THE

PROPHET, MOHAMMED.

EVEN THOUGH THEY ARRESTED

HIM, A MUSLIM MOB RANTED

THROUGH A CHRISTIAN

NEIGHBORHOOD, DESTROYING

HOMESç AND CAUSINGç HUNDREDS

OF CHRISTIAN FAMILIES TO

FLEE.

BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE QURAN,

ISLAM AND THE PROPHET ARE

CRIMES IN PAKISTAN.

THOSE LAWS ARE OFTEN USED TO

INTIMIDATE AND PERSECUTE

CHRISTIANS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PROVIDING LAID FOR VICTIMS

OF WASHINGTON STATE'S

MUDSLIDE.

THE DEVASTATING MUDSLIDE

KILLED 30 PEOPLE IN THE TOWN

OF OSO.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNERED WITH A LOCAL

CHURCH TO PROVIDE RELIEF

SURVIVORS ADç THEIR

FAMILIES.

THEY SET UP A COMMUNICATION

POST AT THE REQUEST OF THE

PASTOR SO RESIDENTS COULD

USE THE INTERNET TO CONNECT

WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS, AS

WELL AS PRE-PAID CELL PHONES

FOR VOLUNTEER ADMINISTRATIVE

SUPPORT.

AND O.B. ALSO PROVIDED A

CASH GRANT FOR THE CHURCH'S

ONGOING RELIEF EFFORTS.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING TO THEIR WEBSITE AT

OB.ORG.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700ç CLUB"

RIGHT AFTERTHIS.

çç

Pat: 30 MINUTES.

30 MINUTES, THAT'S ALL THE

TIME IT TAKES TO CHANGE YOUR

WORLD FOR THE BETTER.ç

IT'S ALSOç THE SECRET BEHIND

THE SUCCESS OF ONE AMERICA'S

MOST EFFECTIVE CHRISTIAN

LEADERS, TOMMY BARNETT.

ROME MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN

BUILT IN A DAY, BUT TOMMY

BARNETT, CO-PASTOR OF ONE OF

THE FASTEST GROWING CHURCHES

IN AMERICA, SAYS YOU MIGHT

BE AMAZED AT WHAT YOU CAN

ACCOMPLISH IN A HALF HOUR.

HE SAYS USING SMALL

INCREMENTS OF TIME-WISELY,

YOU CAN INCREASE YOUR

RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR

FAMILY, AND HAVE A MORE

MEANINGFUL SPIRITUAL LIFE.

IN HIS BOOK "THE POWER OF A

HALF HOUR," PASTOR BARNETT

SHOWS YOU HOW TO USE

30-MINUTE BLOCKS OF TIME TO

CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Pat: WELL, PLEASE

WELCOME BACK A DEAR FRIEND,

THE PASTOR OF ONE OF THE

GREATEST CHURCHES IN

AMERICA, THE FIRST ASSEMBLY

OF PHOENIX, AND THE

CO-FOUNDESç AND PASTORç OF THE

LOS ANGELES DREAM CENTER,

REVEREND TOMMY BARNETT.

GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US,

BROTHER.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WHAT A GREAT HONOR IT IS TO

BE HERE.

Pat: YOU JUST GOT BACK

FROM AUSTRALIA.

YOU FLEW ALL THE WAY ACROSS

THE HUMP AND AROUND --

IT WAS TWO AND A HALF

WEEKS, FLEW IN AND SPOKE

YESTERDAY IN JACKSONVILLE AT

THE ARK CONFERENCE, AND FLEW

HERE YESTERDAY.

Pat: YOU DON'T SLOW

DOWN.ç

YOU'REç SUPPOSED TO SLOW

DOWN.

WELL, YOU'RE NOT A VERY

GOOD EXAMPLE OF THAT

YOURSELF.

Pat: THE LORD IS GOING

TO KEEP US GOING FOR

SOMETHING.

PRAISE GOD.

Pat: THIS IS A TERRIFIC

BOOK.

IT'S CALLED "THE POWER OF A

HALF HOUR."

HOW DID YOU COME UP ON

THAT?

YOU KNOW, DR. ROBERTSON,

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE

DREAMS.

I THINK EVERYBODY HAS DREAMS

AND HOPES FOR THE FUTURE.

Pat: UH-HUH.

BUT THE BIG CULPRIT OFç

KEEPING éHDM FROM REACHING A

DREAM IS THE FACT THEY RUN

OUT OF TIME.

AND THIS BOOK IS ABOUT THE

WASTED TIME THAT COULD BE

USED TO REACH OUR DREAMS.

THE HALF HOUR WAITING AT THE

DOCTOR'S OFFICE, THE HALF

HOUR WAITING AT THE

AIRPORT.

THE HALF HOURS THAT COULD BE

USED PRODUCTIVELY.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE

BOOK WAS WRITTEN IN HALF

HOUR SEGMENTS, WASTED TIME

(1QzU%Ñ MINDç IS JUST KIND

OF BLAH, THAT WE USE IT FOR

THE GLORY OF GOD.

Pat: YOU'RE CHURCH IS

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CHURCH.

IT LOOKS LIKE A SPACESHIP

LANDED ON THE SIDE OF A

MOUNTAIN IN ARIZONA.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL CHURCH.

IN HERE YOU SAY YOU WENT UP

TO THE FOOT OF THAT MOUNTAIN

AND SEEK THE LORD FOR A HALF

HOUR.

DO YOU STILL DO THAT?

EVERY YEAR I MADE A

COMMITMENTç TOç GOD, YEARS

AGO, THAT THE FIRST ONE I

TALKED TO IN THE MORNING

WOULD BE GOD.

BEFORE I READ THE

NEWSPAPER -- I READ THE

NEWSPAPER EVERY DAY FROM

COVER TO COVER, BUT I MADE A

COMMITMENT THAT I WOULD READ

THE BIBLE BEFORE I READ

ANYTHING ELSE.

SO I GO TO THAT MOUNTAIN AND

I SPEND 30 MINUTES SEEKING

GOD.

30 MINUTES READING THE

BIBLE, AND THEN 30 MINUTES

OF JUST PRAISING GOD FOR

WHAT HE HAS DONE.

AND THE LAST 30 MINUTES OF

JUSTçç DREAMING, ENVISIONING

WHAT THE LORD IS GOING TO DO

IN OUR LIFE.

MOST PEOPLE NEVER REACH

THEIR DREAMS BECAUSE THEY

DON'T HAVE TIME TO THINK

ABOUT IT.

Pat: YOU HAVE SOMETHING

CALLED THE DREAM CENTER.

IT'S A HUGE THING IN

LOS ANGELES.

HOW DO THAT COME ABOUT?

WELL, IT'S A PLACE WHERE

PEOPLE THAT -- THE

THROW-AWAYS IN AMERICA, THE

UNTOUCHABILITIES -- WE WENT

THERE[wvç TO BUILD A GREAT

CHURCH, BUT BEFORE YOU BUILD

A GREAT CHURCH, YOU HAVE TO

HAVE GREAT PEOPLE.

THERE WERE NO JOBS, NO

FATHERS, ANARCHY, AND WE

REALIZED WE HAD TO DO THAT.

SO TO BUILD A CHURCH, WE

STARTED A PLACE TO BUILD THE

PEOPLE.

TODAY WE HAVE ANGELES TEMPLE

THAT ANDY PICTUR McSPHEREççSON.

AND WE HAVE EVERYTHING

THERE.

WE HAVE DRUG ADDICTS.

WE HAVE TRAFFICKED GIRLS.

WE HAVE RUN-AWAYS.

AND I ALWAYS SAY, NOT JUST

THE PASTORAL STAFF.

Pat: YOU DON'T TURN

ANYBODY AWAY?

NO, WE DON'T.

EVERYBODY COMES FREE OF

CHARGE.

THAT TAKES THE LAST 20 YEARS

OFçç MATTHEW, RAISING THE

FUNDS TO KEEP IT GOING.

SO IT IS A BUSY JOB FOR US.

Pat: YOU TALKED ABOUT

YOUR CHURCH, WITH THE

HOMELESS, AND YOU SAID WHAT

ARE WE GOING TO DO FOR

THEM?

AND YOUR CHURCH GAVE

THOUSANDS OF TURKEYS TO GIVE

TO PEOPLE.

IN MATTHEW, WHEN THAT BOY

WAS SHOT AT THE DOORSTEP OF

THE CHURCH, HE CALLED ME UP

AND SAID,ç DAD, WE'VEç NEVER

BEEN TRAINED IN

CROSS-CULTURE EVANGELISM,

BUT HE SAID I LEARNED

SOMETHING TODAY.

I LEARNED YOU CAN'T FIGHT

LOVE.

AND HE SAID, DAD,

THANKSGIVING IS COMING.

I NEED 5,000 TURKEYS, 7,000

TURKEYS.

AND HE SAID, WOULD YOU GO TO

YOUR CHURCH AND ASK THEM?

SO I WENT TO MY CHURCH AND I

SAID, WE NEED THAT MANY

TURKEYS, AND THEY BROUGHT

THEM IN.ç

AND@A! HE CALLED ME AND

SAID, DAD, I'VE GOT A

PROBLEM.

I FOUND OUT THAT THE

HISPANIC POPULATION HERE,

THEY LIKE CHICKEN AND NOT

TURKEY.

AND I SAID, JUST TELL THEM

THEIR CHICKEN ON STEROIDS.

Pat: BIG CHICKENS.

AND IT EXPLODED.

AND THE NEXT THING HE SAID,

DAD, I WANT TO GIVE AWAY

PRESENTS FOR CHRISTMAS.

WOULD YOU ASK YOUR CHURCH TOç

GIVE 10,000ç PRESENTS.

IT'S WONDERFUL TO HAVE A DAD

WITH A BIG CHURCH.

I WENT TO THE CHURCH, AND

ONE MAN ALONE GAVE 5,000

BRAND NEW BICYCLES.

AND WE SENT 15,000

PRESENTS.

NOW MATTHEW HAS A CHURCH OF

THOUSANDS, AT LEAST 8,000,

10,000 PEOPLE.

AND HE FEEDS 50,000 A WEEK.

AND THEN WE STARTED ONE IN-PHOENIX,ç AND IN PHOENIX, OUR

DREAM CENTERS EXPLODED.

WE HAVE 40 GIRLS IN HUMAN

TRAFFICKING, AND THEY'VE

BEEN RESCUED.

Pat: IT IS CALLED L-

L-O-V-E.

DID YOU ABSORB MATTHEW OR HE

JUST HEARDç ITç FROM?

MY DAD TAUGHT US.

SOME THINGS ARE TAUGHT AND

SOME THINGS ARE CAUGHT.

AND MY OTHER SON IS NOW THE

LEAD PASTOR WITH ME AT

PHOENIX, ARIZONA.

AND BOTH OF THEM ARE

BREAKING MY RECORDS.

GOD IS BLESSING THEM.

Pat: YOU'RE GOING TO

DREAM BIG, AND LORD, IN

ANSWER TO YOUR DREAM, PUT

YOU IN A LITTLEç Vo.9jjñ

DAVENPORT, IOWA, ISN'T ALL

THAT LITTLE, BUT IT IS

LITTLE COMPARED TO NEW

YORK.

YOU WOUND UP IN DAVENPORT.

WAS THAT A HUMBLING

EXPERIENCE?

GOD WAS BLESSING ME

THERE, WITH 76 PEOPLE.

AND I LEARNED SOMETIMES THE

GREATEST JOY IS TO BUILD

SOMETHING.

I'M FROM THE BUILDER

GENERATION, LIKE YOU.

I LIKE TO BUILD.

MY GREATEST JOY IS WHEN --ç

SOMEBODYç SAID, PASTOR, WHEN

I HEAR YOU PREACH, I EITHER

WANT TO BUILD SOMETHING OR

BURN SOMETHING.

SO BUILDING AND LOYALTY ARE

THE THINGS THAT ARE THE MOST

TO ME.

AND I WANT TO THANK YOU, MY

DEAR FRIEND.

YOU'VE BEEN SUCH A LOYAL,

KIND FRIEND.

I LOVE YOU DEARLY.

Pat: I'VE LOVED YOU

FOREVER, AND I JUST ADMIRE

YOU.

AND IT'S A THRILL.

IT'S A TREAT TO)BE THEREç

WITH YOU.

THEY REALLY LOVE GOD, THAT

CHURCH.

THEY GO OUT INTO THE

NEIGHBORHOODS.

YOU'VE GOT BUSES THAT GO AND

BRING IN THE HOMELESS AND

BRING IN THE NEEDY INTO YOUR

CHURCH.

WE STILL DO.

WE BUILT OUR CHURCH ON

FINDING A NEED AND FILLING

IT.

WHEN WE FIND A HURT, WE JUMP

UP AND REJOICE BECAUSE WE

KNOW IT IS SOMETHING WE CAN

DO FOR GOD.

IN THIS BOOK, ONE OFç THE

MAINç THINGS ABOUT IT IS IF

YOU WILL GIVE A HALF HOUR

EVERY DAY TO HELP SOMEBODY

BUILD THEIR DREAMS, IT WILL

COME BACK TO YOU PRESSED

DOWN, SHAKEN TOGETHER AND

RUNNING OVER.

I GOT A LETTER WANTING ME TO

COME TO IRELAND.

I THOUGHT, I DON'T HAVE TIME

TO GO THERE.

IT WAS A WEEK THERE IN A

VERY SMALL CHURCH.

SOMETHING SAID TO ME, YOU

NEED TO GO.

IT WAS A PROMPTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

JUST BEFORE I LEFT, A MAN

WROTE ME AND SAID, WOULDç YOU

GIFEç ME A HALF HOUR BEFORE

YOU GO.

AND I THOUGHT, I'M JET

LAGGED, I DON'T HAVE TIME TO

DO THAT.

BUT I'VE LEARNED TO YIELD TO

THE PROMPTINGS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

BEFORE CHURCH, I SAT DOWN

WITH HIM, AND HE SAID TELL

ME ABOUT THE DREAM CENTER.

AND HE SAID, I WANT TO START

ONE RIGHT HERE IN BELFAST.

WOULD YOU HELP US?

MATTHEW AND I SAID, WE

WILL.

AND HE SAID, TELL MEç ABOUT

THE DREAMç CENTER IN L.A.,

AND I TOLD HIM.

AND HE SAID, HOW MUCH DOES

IT COST TO FINISH A FLOOR?

BECAUSE WE HAD SEVEN FLOORS

THAT HAD TO BE BROUGHT UP TO

CODE BEFORE WE COULD USE

THEM.

I SAID, ABOUT A MILLION

DOLLARS.

FROM A MAN I DIDN'T KNOW, I

DIDN'T KNOW A THING ABOUT

HIM, AND IT SEEMED FOOLISH

THAT I GAVE HIM A HALF

HOUR.

AND HE SAID, WHEN YOU GET

HOME, THERE WILL BE A CHECK

FOR ONE OF THOSE FLOORS.

WHEN I GOT HOME, THERE WAS Aç

Pat: ONE HALF HOUR.

ONE HALF HOUR.

AND TODAY THERE IS A DREAM

CENTER IN BELFAST AND THERE

IS A HOME FINISHED FOR

HOMELESS FAMILIES BECAUSE WE

GAVE A HALF HOUR.

IT CAME BACK PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN, AND RUNNER OVER.

IT IS A LIFE-MATCHING

MANAGING BOOK.

Pat: I WAS THRILLED TO

READç THIS.ç

I HAVE KNOWN TOMMY, AND THIS

IS FROM THE HEART.

A MAN WHO LOVES GOD.

WHERE DO YOU GET IT, TOMMY?

IT CAN BE BOUGHT AT

BARNES AND NOBEL, ANY PLACE

THEY SELL GOOD BOOKS.

I'VE NOTICED EVERY AIRPORT

I'VE BEEN AT, THEY'VE GOT IT

ON THE SHELF.

Pat: "THE POWER OF A

HALF HOUR," FROM PASTOR

TOMMY BARNETT.

YOU NEED TO GET A COPY.

IT IS A WONDERFUL READ.

AND YOU'LL ENJOY IT, AND YOU

WILLç BEç INSPIRED, AS I WAS.

DR. ROBERTSON, WE

INTRODUCED IT A MONTH AGO ON

ABC, AND IT HAS JUST BEEN

GOING GREAT.

THIS IS THE SECOND

OPPORTUNITY WE'VE HAD.

I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR

BEING A LIFE-LONG FRIEND.

Pat: THANK YOU, MY

BROTHER.

I LOVE YOU.

TOMMY BARNETT, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

TERRY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL.

CYNTHIA SAYS, "MY HUSBAND

ANDç Iç HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR

ALMOST THREE YEARS NOW, BUT

I JUST RECENTLY FOUND OUT

THAT HE LIKES TO WEAR MY

UNDERGARMENTS AND CLOTHING.

WE HAVE A 14-MONTH-OLD SON.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF HE

STARTS WEARING WOMEN'S

CLOTHING AS WELL, WHEN HE

GETS OLDER?"

PAT SOW'S GOING TO ANSWER

THAT ONE.

AND WE'LL ANSWER THIS

QUESTION AND MORE IN "BRING

IT ON."

çççççççç

Terry: PAT, THIS FIRST

E-MAIL IS FROM CYNTHIA, WHO

SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE

BEEN TOGETHER FOR ALMOST

THREE YEARS NOW.

BUT I JUST RECENTLY FOUND

OUT THAT HEç LIKES TOç WEAR MY

UNDERGARMENTS AND CLOTHING.

I LOVE HIM DARRELL DEARLY,

BUT NOW MY FAMILY HAS FOUND

OUT.

WHAT SHOULD I DO, LISTEN TO

MY FAMILY AND LEAVE HIM

UNTIL HE STOPS, OR LOSE

CONTACT WITH THEM.

WE HAVE A 14-MONTH-OLD SON.

HE WANTS TO BE LIKE DADDY.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF HE

STARTS WEARING WOMEN'S

CLOTHING WHEN HEç GETA

OLDER?"

Pat: YOU'RE LOOKING AT

A PSYCHOLOGICAL FETISH, AND

IT IS DIFFICULT.

I DON'T THINK YOU OUGHT TO

LEAVE YOUR HUSBAND.

YOU OUGHT TO STAY WITH HIM

AND WORK THROUGH THIS

SITUATION.

I THINK HE NEEDS

PROFESSIONAL HELP IN THIS.

BUT YOU NEED TO TELL HIM,

YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THE DEAL

IS.

AND IN A SENSE SOMEHOW WORK

WITH HIM.

YOUR CHILD NEEDS A FATHER.

AND DON'T LISTEN TO PEOPLEç

WHOç SAY, WELL, LEAVE HIM.

WHY LEAVE HIM?

WHAT'S HE DONE TO YOU?

HE LIKES TO WEAR UNDERWEAR.

BIG DEAL.

HE NEEDS HELP.

Terry: AND THERE IS

HELP.

MAYBE HAVING A CHILD IS THE

CATALYST FOR THAT.

Pat: THEY'VE GOT A

CHILD, SO THEY'VE GOT TO DO

SOMETHING.

BUT DO NOT LEAVE.

WHAT ELSE?

Terry: JUANITA SAYS, "I

HAVE A RELATIVE WHO I HAVE

BEEN HOLDINGç A GRUDGEç

AGAINST FOR YEARS.

I RECENTLY READ A PAMPHLET

CALLED "THE LAW OF LOW" "MY

RELATIVE PRACTICES

WITCHCRAFT AND READS TAROT

CARDS.

WHAT DO I DO?"

Pat: JESUS SAID, WHEN

YOG STAND PRAYING, IFç YOU

HAVE OUGHT AGAINST ANY,

FORGIVE SO THAT YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER WILL FORGIVE

YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO ENTER INTO

MIRACLES, YOU HAVE TO BE IN

A STATE OF BEING BORN

AGAIN.

IN ORDER TO BE BORN AGAIN,

YOU HAVE TO BE FORGIVEN.

YOU'RE ASKING GOD TO FORGIVE

YOU.

YOU HAVE TO FORGIVE OTHERS.

YOU FORGIVE.

YOU CAN'T NECESSARILY

FORGIVE THE FACT THAT THIS

PERSON IS IN WITCHCRAFT.

THATç ISç A DIFFERENT MATTER.

BUT DO YOU HAVE A GRUDGE

AGAINST THEM?

HAVE YOU HURT THEM?

AND JESUS SAID, WHEN YOU'RE

OFFERING A GIFT ON THE ALTER

AND YOU REMEMBER SOMEBODY

HAS SOMETHING AGAINST YOU,

GO TO THEM AND MAKE IT

RIGHT.

IN OTHER WORDS, YOU DON'T

WANT TO LEAVE EVIL FEELINGS

AGAINST YOU OR FOR YOU IN

ANY WAY.

YOU WANT TO DO EVERYTHING

YOU CAN DO TO BRING ABOUT

HARMONY.

IN TERMS OF THAT PERSON, YOU

DON'T HAVEç TO GIVEç UP YOUR

DEEPLY-HELD BELIEFS AGAINST

WITCHCRAFT.

THAT'S A DIFFERENT MATTER.

HERE IS TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE, TAKEN FROM PROVERBS:

"HE STORES UP SOUND WISDOM

FOR THE UPRIGHT.

HE IS A SHIELD TO THOSE WHO

WALK UPRIGHTLY.

HE GUARDS THE PATHS OF

JUSTICE AND PRESERVES THE

WAY OF HIS SAINTS."

FOR U ALL OF US, THIS IS

PATç ROBERTSON, TE@RY

MEEUWSEN, AND WE'LL SEE YOU

ON MONDAY.

BYE-BYE.
