Watch the 700 Club Canada for April 9, 2014 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE

700 CLUB CANADA.

LAURA LYNN, WHAT STORIES

WHAT KIND OF STORIES WARM

YOUR HEART?

STORIES THAT ARE, TRUE

STORIES ABOUT SOMEBODY

COMING FROM BEHIND. YOU

KNOW WHERE YOU DIDN'T

THINK THAT THEY COULD MAKE

IT, LIKE MAYBE A HOMELESS

GUY MAKES IT UP TO WALL

STREET. SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

INTERESTING BECAUSE I

WATCH A LOT OF STORIES LIKE

GAIL SEARS, AND BRIAN PICCOLO,

YOU KNOW, PEOPLE THAT HAD

GREAT IMPACT BUT JUST BEHIND

THE SCENES AND FINDING OUT

HOW THEIR LIFE. I WAS

WATCHING A STORY JUST

RECENTLY ON NETFLIX AND

IT WAS ABOUT TODD

MORINOVICH AND HOW HIS

DAD REALLY HELPED HIM

BECOME THIS REALLY SUPER

ATHLETE AND WENT TO USC

ENDED UP PLAYING. BUT THEN

WHEN HE GOT TO THE RAIDERS,

HIS LIFE JUST FELL APART BECAUSE

HE WAS ON HIS OWN. SO, I LIKE

TO HEAR, YOU KNOW, TRUE LIFE

STORIES.

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A FALL

APART STORY.

WELL, YOU KNOW, JUST

SEEING BEHIND THE SCENES

HOW PEOPLE GOT THE WAY

THEY, HOW THEY ARE, YEAH.

I KNOW, THE NITTY- GRITTY.

THAT'S WHY I LOVE ASKING

LAURA LYNN THESE QUESTIONS.

TODAY WE HAVE TWO

INSPIRATIONAL STORIES FOR

YOU AND WE HOPE THAT THEY

WILL WARM YOUR HEART. YOU'LL

MEET ONE COUPLE WHO WERE

FACING FINANCIAL UNCERTAINTY

UNTIL THEY DECIDED TO PUT

THEIR FAITH INTO ACTION.

REX AND ROSA JOHNSON

SHARE A FEW LESSONS THAT THEY

LEARNED ABOUT GIVING THAT

HAVE CHANGED THE WAY THAT

THEY VIEW MONEY AND GOD.

ALSO, DIANE BURGES HAS A

STORY THAT WILL MAKE YOUR

JAW DROP. IT'S FULL OF ONE

MIRACLE AFTER ANOTHER AND

YOU'LL SEE WHY SHE'S

CONVINCED THAT SHE'S ALIVE

BECAUSE OF AN ACT OF GOD.

ALSO, WITH EASTER JUST

AROUND THE CORNER, WE'LL

GET A FASCINATING LOOK AT THE

ANCIENT JEWISH CULTURE AS

JOE AMMERAL JOINS US AGAIN

WITH MORE HIDDEN SECRETS

FOUND IN THE BIBLE. BUT FIRST

ONE COUPLE SHARE WITH WHAT

FINANCIAL FREEDOM REALLY

MEANS TO THEM.

REX AND ROSA JOHNSON

LOVE TAKING IN A BEAUTIFUL

SUNSET AT THEIR HOME IN THE

NEW MEXICO DESERT. SHORTLY

AFTER THEY MOVED HERE

THOUGH, REX LOST HIS JOB WHEN

HIS COMPANY DOWNSIZED AND

THEY HAD TO LIVE ON SAVINGS.

SOMETIMES IT WAS HAND-

TO-MOUTH BUT I'M DOING MY

BEST, AND THAT'S ALL A MAN CAN

DO.

MEANWHILE, REX WAS

HOME MORE OFTEN AND

STARTED WATCHING THE 700

CLUB WITH ROSA, WHO HAD

BEEN A LONG TIME VIEWER. THE

BIBLICAL TEACHINGS ON THE

SHOW REMINDED HIM OF THE

IMPORTANCE OF GIVING AND

TITHING FAITHFULLYÃSOMETHING

THEY HADN'T DONE FOR YEARS.

AS I GOT INTERESTED IN THE

700 CLUB, I STARTED

REMEMBERING WHEN WE WERE

TITHING REGULARLY AND WERE

DOING THESE THINGS. IT WOULD

SEEM LIKE WE WOULD NEED

SOME MONEY AND SOMEHOW IT

WOULD HAPPEN. I WOULD GET

OVERTIME AND SOMETHING

UNEXPECTED WOULD HAPPEN.

SO WHEN ROSA SUGGESTED

THEY START GIVING TO CBN, REX

WAS WAY AHEAD OF HER.

GOD MADE A PROMISE, AND

CBN BROUGHT THAT OUT AND IT

KEPT RESONATING IN MY MIND.

HE SAID, 'TRY ME.' AND I SAID,

'I'M GOING TO DO IT.

SO THE JOHNSON'S BECAME

CBN PARTNERS. SOON AFTER.

ONCE I MADE THE

COMMITMENT, THE NEXT DAY I

GOT THE PHONE CALL FOR A JOB I

DIDN'T APPLY FOR. YES, I WAS

SURPRISED IT WAS MIRACULOUS!"

IN FACT THE JOB WAS BETTER

THAN THE ONE HE APPLIED FOR.

THE JOHNSONS BELIEVE IT WAS

BECAUSE OF THEIR FAITHFULNESS

TO GIVE. NOW THEY ARE EXCITED

ABOUT GIVING, AND SAY THERE

HAVE BEEN TIMES THEY

COULDN'T WAIT TO INCREASE

THEIR PLEDGE TO CBN.

I'M WORKING OUT

WATCHING THE 700 CLUB AND

GORDON'S TALKING AND I'M

SITTING THERE GETTING STIRRED IN

MY HEART AND I'M THINKING, 'I

NEED TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT MORE

MONEY.' I SAID, 'LORD, LET ME

FINISH MY WORKOUT FIRST.' SO

AFTER THAT AND I DID MY COOL

DOWN I WENT IN AND INCREASED

OUR PLEDGE.

REX AND ROSA ARE

CONVINCED THAT THROUGH THEIR

GIVING, GOD HAS BLESSED THEM

IN MORE WAYS THAN THEY CAN

COUNT.

I'M ABLE TO GIVE. I'M ABLE

TO SAVE. I'M PAYING OUR BILLS,

AND NOW I WOULDN'T THINK OF

NOT GIVING TO GOD. SO, I'M

FEELING GOOD!

THAT'S A GREAT STORY LAURA

LYNN.

IT SURE IS.

TREMENDOUS TO SEE

HOW PEOPLE CAN TRUST GOD

AND SEE HIM TURN IT AROUND.

YOU CAN TRUST HIM, HE'S

FAITHFUL.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU LOOK

AT REX AND ROSA, YOU MIGHT

BE IN THE SAME SITUATION. I

KNOW WITH THE NEW UPS EVEN

IN STOPPING YOUR EROSION OF

YOUR CAPITOL AND EVEN THOSE

INVESTMENTS THAT YOU HAVE.

SOMETIMES WE FIND OURSELVES

SAYING, GOD, ARE YOU REALLY

CONCERNED ABOUT MY

FINANCES? BUT DO YOU REALIZE

THERE ARE THREE TIMES IN

SCRIPTURE THAT GOD SAID HE'LL

NEVER REVOKE AND THAT IS

SEED, TIME, AND HARVEST. SO

THAT MEANS, DON'T EAT YOUR

SEED BUT SOW YOUR SEED.

BECAUSE AS A FARMER, IF YOU

GET A SEED IN THE GROUND, YOU

DON'T RUN FROM IT BUT YOU

ACTUALLY BY FAITH, WHEN YOU

CAN TAKE A SEED, AND I'M

GOING TO GIVE YOU A WORD

TODAY AND I REALLY BELIEVE

THAT GOD IS GOING TO DO

SOMETHING IN YOUR HEART

WITH THIS WORD AS WELL LIKE IT

DID WITH REX AND ROSA. AND

HE'S GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO

MOVE FORWARD. SEED, TIME,

AND HARVEST. ONCE YOU GET

A SEED IN THE GROUND, YOU

DON'T RUN FROM THE SEED, YOU

SOW YOUR SEED, AND WATCH

HOW GOD BRINGS THAT SEED IN.

LISTEN TO WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

IN DEUTERONOMY CHAPTER 8

VERSE 18. IT SAYS, AND YOU

SHALL REMEMBER THE LORD

YOUR GOD, FOR IT IS HE WHO

GIVES YOU, WATCH THIS, POWER

TO GET WEALTH. THAT HE MAY

ESTABLISH HIS COVENANT, WHICH

HE SWORE TO YOUR FATHERS AS

IT IS TO THIS DAY. IN OTHER

WORDS, TITHING IS A COVENANT

CONNECTOR. IT ALLOWS US TO

CONNECT TO THE BLESSING OF

ABRAHAM. SO NO LONGER ARE

YOU UNDER THE CURSE OF

ADAM, BECAUSE IT SAYS IN

GALATIANS IS THAT CURSED IS HE

THAT HANGS ON THE TREE THAT

THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM MAY

COME UPON THE GENTILES.

WHEN JESUS DID THAT IT

CONNECTED US INTO THE

BLESSING OF ABRAHAM. SO

YOU'RE NOT LONGER UNDER THE

CURSE OF ADAM BUT THE

BLESSING OF ABRAHAM AND

NOW WE SOW, WE GIVE TO OUR

HIGH PRIEST. WHEN YOU BEGIN

TO DO THAT, WATCH HOW GOD

IS GOING TO TURN YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCE AROUND.

YOU KNOW IT'S SO TRUE.

I MEAN THE WORD OF GOD SAYS

THAT WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS

THERE IS YOUR HEART ALSO. AND

ITS EASY TO THINK THAT IF WE

HANG ONTO OUR FINANCES AND

WE KIND OF HOARD IT THAT

MAYBE WE'LL HAVE MORE.

WHEN IN FACT, PROVERBS SAYS

THAT THERE IS ONE WHO

WITHHOLDS AND YET HAS LESS

AND SO GOD WANTS YOU TO

TRUST HIM WITH YOUR TREASURE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS.

GIVE THAT TREASURE TO GOD

AND WATCH WHAT HE CAN DO

WITH IT.

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT

LAURA LYNN BECAUSE WHEN

YOU GET THAT WORD,

REMEMBER DEUTERONOMY

8:18, WHAT YOU HAVE NOW IS

WORD, FAITH, PUT YOUR FAITH

BEHIND IT, SUBSTANCE IS GOING

TO COME. SEED, TIME,

HARVEST, WORD, FAITH,

SUBSTANCE. AND THEN MAKE

SURE YOU CALL THE NUMBER ON

THE SCREEN. 1-855-759-0700.

COSTS YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

BUT I BELIEVE THAT GOD IS

GOING TO DO SOMETHING.

LET ME PRAY WITH YOU. FATHER

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

STEWARDS, FOR YOUR SON AND

YOUR DAUGHTER AND WE ASK

YOU THAT EVEN NOW THAT

YOU WOULD BLESS THEM WITH

RESOURCES BUT YOU WOULD ALSO

GRANT THEM WISDOM TO GAIN

WEALTH TO GIVE YOU GLORY,

IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN, IF YOU PRAYED

THAT PRAYER WOULD YOU

GIVE US A CALL AT 1-855

759-0700.

I THINK THE VIDEO WAS

VERY POWERFUL. I JUST

NEVER REALIZED THAT GOD

USED DREAMS AS MUCH AS

HE DID TO COMMUNICATE.

THE THINGS THAT THEY TALK

ABOUT ON THE DVD, VISIONS OF

THE NIGHT, THEY DO OCCUR. IT

HAPPENED TO ME. IT'S A VERY

POWERFUL VIDEO. IT PUTS

TOGETHER A LOT OF STORIES THAT

YOU HEAR FROM THE BIBLE

BECAUSE THERE ARE ALL THESE

HISTORICAL FIGURES AND HOW

GOD USES DREAMS AND

VISIONS TO DELIVER

MESSAGES.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU

ABOUT HOW GOD WILL

FINISH WHAT HE HAS

STARTED. SOMETIMES

IT TAKES A WHILE TO SEE

THE COMPLETION OF A TRIAL.

YOU KNOW, IT TOOK A WHILE

WHEN THE CHILDREN OF

ISRAEL HAD TO MARCH AROUND

THE WALL OF JERICHO SEVEN

TIME FOR SEVEN DAYS. BUT IN

THE FINAL MOMENT OF GOD'S

JUSTICE, IT TOOK ONLY MOMENTS

FOR THAT WALL TO CRASH TO THE

GROUND. IT TOOK A WHILE FOR

LAZARUS TO DIE WHEN HE WAS

SICK. AND IT WAS FOUR MORE

DAYS AFTER THAT WHEN JESUS

FINALLY ARRIVED AND HE MADE

HIS WAY THROUGH THE TOWN TO

WHERE THE GRIEVING FAMILY

MOURNED. BUT WHEN JESUS

GOT THERE, IT TOOK ONLY

MINUTES TO RESURRECT ALL THAT

WAS LOST. IN ANOTHER STORY IN

THE BIBLE WHICH SEEMED SO

TRAGIC, IT TOOK A WHILE FOR

HER YOUNG SON TO DIE. THIS

WIDOW HAD ALREADY LOST HER

HUSBAND AND NOW HER

ONLY CHILD WAS GONE. IT

TOOK A WHILE FOR THE WIDOW TO

MAKE THE BURIAL PREPARATIONS

AND FEEL THE LOSS SO GREATLY

THAT SHE THOUGHT SHE HERSELF

WOULD DIE. IT TOOK TIME TO

WALK DOWN THAT PATH IN THE

THE FUNERAL PRECESSION WITH

NO HOPE, NO FAITH, NO CHANCE,

TO SEE HER SON ALIVE AGAIN.

BUT WHEN JESUS SHOWED UP

AND HE SAID TO HER, DON'T

CRY, IT TOOK ONLY MOMENTS TO

SEE HER SON RISE AGAIN. FOR ALL

OF YOU WHO HAVE FOUND

YOURSELF IN A KNOCKED OUT

DRAG OUT DIRTY BACK ALLY FIGHT

WITH THE DEVIL OVER

SOMETHING THAT HE HAS TRIED

TO TAKE FROM YOU, REST

ASSURED, HE'S NOT GOING TO

WIN. HE'S GONE AFTER YOUR

KIDS, YOUR SPOUSE, YOUR

MONEY, YOUR STUFF, YOUR

SENSE OF IDENTITY, YOUR

POWER, YOUR TALENTS, YOUR

CALLING, AND YOUR DIGNITY, BUT

HE'S FIGHTING A LOSING BATTLE.

AND IT'S TIME FOR HIM TO RUN.

THE LORD REBUKES HIM. THE

BATTLE DOES NOT BELONG TO

MAN BUT TO GOD ALMIGHTY

AND HE HAS ALREADY

PROMISED YOU THAT YOU

WIN. SECOND CHRONICLES

200:17, SAYS YOU WILL NOT NEED

TO FIGHT IN THIS BATTLE,

POSITION YOURSELVES, STAND

STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF

THE LORD, WHO IS WITH YOU, OH

JUDAH, IN JERUSALEM, DO NOT

FEAR, OR BE DISMAYED.

TOMORROW, GO OUT AGAINST

THEM FOR THE LORD IS WITH

YOU. WHAT YOU'VE LOST,

HAD RIPPED OUT OF YOUR

HANDS, WATCHED IN HORROR AS

IT BECAME A VAPOR BEFORE

YOUR EYES, WHATEVER YOU

HAVE GRIEVED OVER THE

MAGNITUDE OF THE ATTACK, IT IS

TIME TO SEE THE MONUMENTAL

VINDICATION OF YOUR GOD ON

YOUR BEHALF. IT MAY TAKE

SOME TIME BUT IF YOU WILL

POSITION YOURSELF IN A POSTURE

OF COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF, WHO

GOES BEFORE YOU, IT WILL TAKE

ONLY A MOMENT, JUST A

MOMENT TO SEE YOUR TRIAL

TURN TO VICTORY AS YOU RISE UP

IN FAITH, STAND STILL FRIEND, SE

THE REDEMPTION OF YOUR GOD.

AMEN, AND YOU KNOW,

YOUR GOD IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER. WHAT LAURA LYNN IS

TALKING ABOUT SHE'S RIGHT. I

REMEMBER (INAUDIBLE) SHE

SAID SOMETHING THAT WAS SO

POWERFUL, SHE SAID, I TRY TO

HOLD ONTO THINGS VERY LIGHTLY

BECAUSE WHEN GOD HAS TO RIP

THEM OUT OF MY HANDS IT

HURTS A WHOLE LOT LESS.

YOU KNOW, MANY TIMES WHAT

GOD IS DOING IN THE PROCESS IS

HE'S TEACHING US THAT IF HE

MULTIPLIES US ECONOMICALLY,

SOCIALLY, AND ALSO, IN THE AREA

OF GEOGRAPHY, THOSE THINGS

TURN INTO IDOLATRY. SO, GOD IS

SAYING RIGHT NOW, I AM

TRUSTING YOU BECAUSE I'M

TESTING YOU. BECAUSE AFTER

YOU'RE TESTED THEN YOU'LL BE

ENTRUSTED. BUT I WANT YOU TO

GET SOMETHING IN YOUR SPIRIT.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ZACHARIAH

CHAPTER THREE VERSE ONE. IT

SAYS THAT JOSHUA STOOD

BEFORE THE LORD, THE ANGLE OF

THE LORD AND SATAN WAS AT HIS

RIGHT HAND TO REBUKE HIM.

BUT HE SAID, THE LORD WHO

CHOSE JERUSALEM, REBUKE YOU,

THIS IS WHAT I WANT YOU TO

HOLD ONTO. BECAUSE THIS IS

SO IMPORTANT YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO PRAY FOR RECOMPENSE

NOW. SAY GOD, I WANT IT ALL

BACK. I'M NOT GOING TO LET

ANYTHING THAT YOU'VE GIVEN

TO ME OR WHAT YOU HAVE

PURPOSED FOR MY LIFE, NOT

ANYTHING EXTRA, NOT ANYTHING

LESS BUT I WANT IT ALL BACK

GOD. AND THIS IS YOUR VERSE.

AND IT SAYS IN PROVERBS

CHAPTER SIX, AND I LOVE THIS

BECAUSE IT SAYS THIS IN THE 31

VERSE, WATCH WHAT IT SAYS. IT

SAYS IF A THIEF COMES IN AND

STEALS, HE SAYS DO NOT DESPISE

HIM. BUT IF HE IS CAUGHT HE

HAS TO PAY BACK SEVEN FOLD.

I HAVE GOD HAS A SEVEN FOLD

BLESSING FOR YOU TODAY. CALL

THE NUMBER ON THE SCREEN.

WE WANT TO AGREE WITH YOU

IN PRAYER. THIS IS YOUR BEST

DAY. COMING UP NEXT, MORE

HIDDEN TRUTHS FOUND IN THE

BIBLE. THIS IS JOE AMMERAL.

OVER THE PAST SEVERAL

SEGMENTS I'VE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF

DETAILS. LOOKING AT WHY

THINGS ARE RECORDED. AND

SOMETIMES WE THINK WELL,

IS IT REALLY SIGNIFICANT THAT

JESUS MAYBE STOOPED

TWICE AND WROTE IN THE

SAND? OR DOES IT REALLY

MATTER THAT IT WAS THE LAST

AND GREAT DAY OF THE FEAST

THAT HE WENT UP TO THE

TEMPLE? DO THESE THINGS

REALLY MATTER? WHAT I WANT

TO STRESS AGAIN TODAY IS THAT

THESE THINGS, THEY'RE THERE

FOR A PURPOSE GUYS. THERE'S

A REASON BEHIND THEM. GOD

IS POINTING US TO SOMETHING

AND IF WE DON'T UNDERSTAND

ALL OF THE NUANCES WE MIGHT

MISS SOME OF THE HIDDEN

MEANING. TODAY I WANT TO

TALK ABOUT THE TIME THAT

JESUS DIED. AND THAT MIGHT

SEEM KIND OF DIFFERENT, WHY

DO WE NEED TO KNOW EXACTLY

WHAT TIME THAT JESUS DIED?

WHY DOESN'T THE BIBLE JUST

SAY THAT IN THE AFTERNOON

OR AFTER SEVERAL HOURS OF

HANGING THAT HE FINALLY HE

DIED AND HE GAVE UP HIS

SPIRIT? BUT NO, THE GOSPEL

WRITERS ARE VERY CAREFUL

AND THEY SAY AT THE

THREE O'CLOCK IN THE

AFTERNOON THAT JESUS

BREATHED HIS LAST. THAT'S

THE WAY OF SAYING THAT HE

DIED. TO UNDERSTAND WHY

THAT'S IMPORTANT, LET'S GO

BACK TO A PRACTICE FROM THE

FIRST CENTURY. THE FEAST OF

THE LORD, THESE HOLIDAYS FROM

PASSOVER RIGHT THROUGH TO

TABERNACLES THEY ALWAYS

STARTED AT NINE O'CLOCK IN THE

MORNING AND THEY WOULD END

AT THREE O'CLOCK IN THE

AFTERNOON. WHY THREE

O'CLOCK? BECAUSE IN

JUDAISM, THREE O'CLOCK IS

WHAT THEY CALLED THE TWILIGHT

HOUR AS ONE DAY IS ENDING

AND THE NEXT IS BEGINNING

THREE O'CLOCK IS KIND OF

THAT CUT OFF TIME. SO AT

THREE O'CLOCK THAT WAS

THE TIME WHERE THESE

FESTIVALS WOULD END. BUT

HOW WOULD YOU KNOW IT WAS

THREE O'CLOCK? NO BODY

CARRIED WATCHES, THERE WAS

NO WAY TO KNOW WHAT TIME IT

WAS, SO THEY HAD TO DEVELOP

A SYSTEM. AND SYSTEM

INVOLVED THE SHOFAR, THE

BLOWING OF A RAMS HORN

AT THREE O'CLOCK TO LET THE

PEOPLE KNOW THAT THE

FESTIVAL WAS OVER. BUT

WHY DID THEY PICK A SHOFAR

WHY NOT A TRUMPET? WHY

NOT ANOTHER INSTRUMENT?

IN THE TIME OF THE BIBLE, IF

YOU GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING

OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THEY

HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD AS

A SHOFAR SOUND FROM

HEAVEN. SO TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE, THE SHOFAR ACTED AS

OR REPRESENTED THE VOICE OF

GOD HIMSELF. FAST FORWARD TO

THE TIME OF JESUS. THAT THREE

O'CLOCK, ONE OF THE ASSISTANCE

TO THE PRIEST WOULD CLIMB UP

THE WALLS OF THE TEMPLE,

THERE WERE STAIRS THAT WERE

ADJACENT TO IT. HE WOULD GO

INTO THE SOUTHEAST CORNER OF

THE TEMPLE. AND AT THREE

O'CLOCK, IMAGINE AT THREE

O'CLOCK THE PRIEST ASSISTANT

WOULD GET OUT A SHOFAR, AND

HE WOULD BLAST IT SOMETHING

LIKE THIS, (HORN) AND AT THREE

O'CLOCK WHEN YOU HEARD THAT

SEQUENCE THAT WAS GOD

HIMSELF SPEAKING. GOD

WAS SAYING IT'S OVER, IT'S

FINISHED. THE FEAST HAS COME

TO A CLOSE. AND THINK OF JESUS

THE SON OF GOD HANGING ON

THE CROSS. AND AT THREE

O'CLOCK HE HEARS THE SHOFAR.

THAT'S THE VOICE OF HIS FATHER

AND HIS FATHER SAYS SON, IT IS

FINISHED. IT IS OVER. FROM THIS

MOMENT ON IN HISTORY, NO

MORE LAMBS EVER NEED DIE

AGAIN.

I LOVE THAT ABOUT GOD.

THAT HE IS SO PRECISE AND SO

METICULOUS, THAT HE EVEN

SCHEDULED THAT TIME THAT HE

WOULD GIVE UP THE GHOST,

WOW THANK YOU JOE.

YES, YOU KNOW IT MEANS

BRIAN THAT WE CAN TRUST HIM

WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S IN

OUR LIFE.

AMEN.

HE'S TRUSTWORTHY. THE

MISSION OF THE 700 CLUB

CANADA IS TO LET YOU KNOW

0700.

UP NEXT, A PLANE FLIES

OFF THE RUNWAY AND RIGHT ON

TO A SIX LANE FREEWAY. THIS IS

ONE WOMEN'S STORY OF

SURVIVAL.

I HEARD HIM SAY NO BREAKS

NO BREAKS. I DIDN'T PANIC AT

THAT POINT BECAUSE I KNEW WE

HAD THAT BACKUP SYSTEM

WHICH IS CALLED THE REVERSE

THRUSTERS. AND I WATCHED

HIM PULL BACK ON THAT AND

NOTHING. THEN I WAS GETTING

MORE TERRIFIED BY THE SECOND,

BECAUSE I WAS AWARE THAT

WE WERE CRASHING.

DID YOU EVER THINK THAT

THE END WAS NEAR. I MEAN

DID YOU SAY THIS IS IT?

YOU KNOW, I NEVER SAID

THIS IS IT BUT I KNOW I KNEW

THE SEVERITY OF THE SITUATION,

HOW DIRE IT WAS BECAUSE I

WAS TRYING TO DO THINGS SO

QUICKLY.

THIS IS THE END OF THE

RUNWAY IN LEXINGTON

KENTUCKY. AND THIS IS

VERSIALS ROAD, A MAJOR

THOROUGH AFFAIR. DIANA'S

PLANE CAREENED OFF A CLIFF AND

CAME ACROSS SIX LANES OF

TRAFFIC GOING 200 MILES-PER-

HOUR ON A FRIDAY AFTERNOON.

THE TRAFFIC LIGHT 100

YARDS IN FRONT OF ME AND

THE ONE BEHIND ME WERE

BOTH RED, STOPPING TRAFFIC.

THEY DIDN'T HIT A SINGLE CAR.

DIANA QUICKLY REALIZED THAT

THE FOUR OTHER PEOPLE IN THE

PLANE WERE EITHER DEAD OR

UNCONSCIOUS EXCEPT HER CO-

PILOT JIMMY.

AT THAT POINT I WAS

SMELLING SMOKE, AND I

KNEW WE WERE ON FIRE,

BECAUSE I HEARD THAT

CRACKLING. I CRIED OUT TO

JIMMY, 'ARE YOU OK?' HE

SAID, 'NO, DI. MY BACK BROKE.'

WHEN WE DROPPED 60 FEET,

HIS BACK JUST SNAPPED.

IT WAS UP TO DIANA TO OPEN

THE DOOR OF THE TINY JET.

I COULDN'T DO IT. I COULDN'T

STAND UP. I DIDN'T KNOW WHY. I

TRIED WITH ALL MY MIGHT TO

STAND UP TWICE. WHAT I DIDN'T

REALIZE WAS THAT, ON IMPACT,

MY KNEES BUCKLED BACKWARDS

AND DISLOCATED BACKWARDS

AND I DIDN'T HAVE ANY

CONNECTION BETWEEN MY

UPPER AND LOWER LEGS SO I

COULDN'T STAND.

DIANA'S PILOT REGAINED

CONSCIOUSNESS AND OPEN THE

DOOR. PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN

STOPPED AT THE RED LIGHT RAN

TOWARDS THE BURNING PLANE TO

HELP. AIRPORT RESCUE TEAMS

ARRIVED WITHIN MINUTES. THE

ONLY ONE THAT DIED ON IMPACT

WAS HER PATIENT. BUT DIANA

WAS IN DANGER OF DYING

HERSELF AND DIDN'T KNOW IT.

BUT I HAD THE WHEREWITHAL

TO ASK A WOMAN TO BORROW

HER CELL PHONE. HER NAME

WAS CHRIST AND SHE HAD

COME TO MY AID AND AS SHE

WAS PRAYING FOR ME, SO I

COULD CALL MY HUSBAND. I

REALLY DIDN'T KNOW HOW

SERIOUS IT WAS.

SO YOU CALL YOUR HUSBAND

SAY I'VE BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT,

I'VE BROKEN MY LEGS BUT I'M

OKAY?

BUT I'M OKAY.

BUT CHRIST TOOK THE

PHONE BACK, WHAT DID SHE

SAY?

SHE TOOK THE PHONE, AND

MY HUSBAND TOLD ME THAT SHE

SAID, 'NO, SHE IS NOT OK. THIS

IS NOT GOOD.' SHE COULD SEE

THAT MY TOES WERE POINTING IN

THE OPPOSITE WAY OF MY

BODY.

YOUR FEET WERE TURNED

AROUND?

CORRECT. THERE WAS NO

CONNECTION BETWEEN MY

LOWER LEG BONES AND MY

UPPER LEG BONES.

DIANA WAS ASSESSED TO BE

THE MOST CRITICAL OF ALL THE

SURVIVORS AND WAS

TRANSPORTED FROM THE SCENE

BY AIR FIRST. IN ADDITION TO

MASSIVE LEG INJURIES, DIANA

HAD BROKEN HER BACK. SHE

HAD A PUNCTURED LUNG, SHE

WAS HEMORRHAGING, HAD A

TEMPERATURE OF 104, AND HER

KIDNEYS WERE FAILING.

DIANA WAS TAKEN TO THE

UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY

MEDICAL CENTER THAT HOUSES A

LEVEL ONE TRAUMA UNIT.

THAT'S THE HIGHEST CATEGORY

OF CARE AVAILABLE TO TRAUMA

VICTIMS. SHE WAS GIVEN A FIVE

PERCENT CHANCE OF SURVIVING

THOSE FIRST FEW CRITICAL HOURS.

ONLY TO BE TOLD SHE WAS

HEADED TO SURGERY, AND SHE

COULD LIKELY LOSE HER LEGS.

I WAS HORRIFIED. I WAS

SCARED TO DEATH. I WAS

SOMEWHAT ASHAMED,

BECAUSE I HAVE VERY MUSCULAR

LEGS. I HAVE MY FATHER'S LEGS,

AND I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY

IRONIC THAT THE VERY THING THAT

I WAS NOT APPRECIATIVE OF I

MIGHT LOSE. I SAID, 'OH DEAR

GOD. I KNOW I'VE COMPLAINED

ABOUT THEM, BUT I DON'T WANT

TO LOSE THEM.' I WAS REALLY

AFRAID.

JUST THEN, HER SON GOT

THROUGH ON THE PHONE.

HE SAID SOMETHING

AMAZING. HE SAID MOM LISTEN

WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU. THE

PRAYER CHAIN AT CHURCH HAS

STARTED. YOU ARE GOING TO

MAKE IT. YOU ARE GOING TO BE

OK.' LITERALLY I FELT THIS

WARMTH COME OVER MY BODY.

IT WAS THE PEACE THAT PASSES

UNDERSTANDING. AT THAT POINT

I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO

MAKE IT THROUGH SURGERY.

PRIOR TO THAT POINT I WASN'T

SURE.

THE SURGEONS SPARED HER

LEGS, AND DIANA SPENT TWO

AND A HALF WEEKS IN KENTUCKY

GETTING STRONGER EVERY DAY.

BUT DIANA HAD A LONG ROAD

AHEAD. HER THERAPIST GAVE

HER A HEADS UP.

HE TOLD YOU SOMETHING

THAT HAD TO HAVE BEEN TOUGH

HE SAID YOU ARE GOING TO

FACE THE MOST DIFFICULT YEAR OF

PHYSICAL THERAPY THAT SHE

COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT HE

MEANT, BECAUSE I THOUGHT I

WAS AN AEROBICS INSTRUCTOR. I

HAD LIFTED WEIGHTS. I WAS VERY

ATHLETIC. I THOUGHT, 'HOW HARD

CAN THIS REALLY BE?'

DIANA SOON REALIZED IT

WOULD BE THE HARDEST, MOST

PAINFUL THING, SHE WOULD EVER

ENDURE.

IN THE VIDEO YOU'RE LIFTING

A LOT OF LEG AND IT SEEMS LIKE

IT'S TAKING EVERY OUNCE OF

STRENGTH TO BRING THAT LEG UP.

TOTALLY, I WOULD PRAY FOR

GOD'S GRACE. NOT FOR THE NEXT

FIVE MINUTES, NOT FOR THE NEXT

10 MINUTES BUT FOR THE NEXT

20 SECONDS. IT SAYS, 'MY

GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU.'

AND IT WAS. I WAS SO GRATEFUL

FOR WHAT HE HAD DONE FOR ME

I WAS WILLING TO DO WHATEVER

POSSIBLE TO GET MYSELF BETTER.

AND I WAS GOING TO WAIT AND

ALLOW HIM TO DO WHAT WAS

IMPOSSIBLE. BECAUSE THERE

WERE MANY TIMES IT WAS SO

DIFFICULT THAT I WANTED TO

STOP. THEN THIS VOICE INSIDE

ME SAID, 'YOU CAN'T STOP. YOU

NEED TO PRESS ON. IF YOU STOP,

YOU WILL LOSE GROUND; YOU GET

WORSE.' I WAS NOT WILLING TO

DO THAT. I WASN'T WILLING TO DO

THAT FOR ME OR MY FAMILY OR

FOR EVERYONE ELSE THAT PUT IT

ON THE LINE FOR ME, TO SAVE

ME FROM THAT BURNING

AIRCRAFT. I FELT I OWED IT TO

EVERYONE THAT I WAS GOING TO

MAKE IT. I WASN'T JUST GOING TO

MAKE IT, I WOULD BE BACK! I

WANTED TO PROVE TO PEOPLE

HOW MIRACULOUS THIS WAS.

WERE YOU EVER AFRAID

THAT YOU WEREN'T GOING TO

COME BACK?

I WOULD SAY AT NIGHT THE

DOUBTS WOULD COME. IN THE

DARKNESS I WOULD HEAR THOSE

WORDS OF DOUBT. 'YOU CAN'T.

YOU WON'T.' I WOULD CLAIM

GOD'S PROMISES THAT I CAN DO

ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO

STRENGTHENS ME. IF THE GOD

WHO PULLED ME OUT OF THAT

BURNING PLANE SAYS I WALK, I

WALK. IF HE SAYS I RUN, I RUN.

DIANA CAME BACK.

HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU

FEEL TO KNOW THAT YOU

EXCEEDED EVERYBODY'S

EXPECTATIONS?

IT TOOK A LOT OF WORK, BUT

I'M GRATEFUL, AND I'M

HUMBLED THAT THE LORD

ALLOWED ME TO REGAIN THIS. HE

CHOSE ME TO GO THROUGH THIS.

WHAT'S YOUR MESSAGE?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TELL

PEOPLE?

HE SAYS THAT I CAN MAKE

ALL THINGS FOR THE GOOD FOR

THOSE THAT LOVE THE LORD, THE

GOOD IS THAT HE CAN CONFORM

US TO BE MORE LIKE CHRIST OUR

SAVIOR. I'VE BEEN WALKING

WITH HIM SINCE I WAS SEVEN,

BUT THOSE THREE YEARS

BROUGHT ME SO MUCH CLOSER

TO HIM. I KNOW MORE HOW HE

SUFFERED WILLINGLY. I DIDN'T

SUFFER WILLINGLY. CHRIST

SUFFERED WILLINGLY. I WOULD

NOT TRADE WHAT I'VE GONE

THROUGH FOR ANYTHING,

BECAUSE I SEE HOW FAR HE HAS

BROUGHT ME AND HOW MUCH

CLOSER I AM TO MY LORD.

YOU KNOW WHAT I LOVED

MOST ABOUT WHAT DIANA SAID?

IS THE END PART WHEN SHE SAID

SHE WOULD NOT TRADE ANY OF

HER SUFFERING, THE PAIN, THE

HURT, THE MOMENTS WHEN SHE

THOUGHT SHE WAS NOT GOING TO

GET THROUGH. SHE WOULDN'T

TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING BECAUSE

OF WHAT SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT

GOD IN THE MIDST OF HER TRIAL.

THAT IS WHY THERE'S A VERSE

IN THE BIBLE, I HAVE FOUND IT

HARD TO UNDERSTAND AT TIMES.

CAN I SHARE WITH YOU WHAT

THAT IS? FIRST PETER 1:6, IT

SAYS IN THIS, YOU GREATLY

REJOICE, THOUGH NOW FOR

A LITTLE WHILE. IF NEED BE YOU

HAVE BEEN GRIEVED BY

VARIOUS TRIALS, THAT THE

GENUINENESS OF YOUR FAITH

BEING MUCH MORE

PRECIOUS THAN GOLD THAT

(INAUDIBLE). THROUGH IT,

TESTED BY FIRE, YOU MAY BE

FOUND TO PRAISE HONOR AND

GLORY AT THE REVELATION OF

JESUS CHRIST. THE THING IS

DO YOU KNOW WHY THE WORD

OF GOD WANTS YOU TO COUNT IT

ALL? JOY, WHEN YOU

EXPERIENCE TROUBLE, IS THAT

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONE WHO

SHOWS UP IN THE MIDST OF THE

FIRE WITH YOU. THERE IS A

COMMUNION AND A STRENGTH

THAT YOU WILL GAIN. I MEAN

THINK BACK TO THE TIMES WHEN

YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH SOME

OF THE WORST STUFF IN YOUR

LIFE. DO YOU REMEMBER HOW

PRECIOUS IT WAS? THAT YOU

WOULD BE ABLE TO GET DOWN

ON YOUR KNEES AND YOU WOULD

FEEL A PRESENCE THERE. THE

KIND OF PRESENCE THAT CARRIES

YOU THROUGH YOUR DARKEST

HOURS. WHATEVER IT IS YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH, IF YOU WILL

DRAW NEAR TO GOD, HE IS

GOING TO GIVE YOU STRENGTH

AND A POWER, AND A

RELATIONSHIP TO ENDURE.

NEVER LET GO.

AMEN, BUT YOU SEE

THE REALITY OF WHAT LAURA

LYNN IS TALKING ABOUT AS WELL.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE LORD,

THAT'S NOT YOUR PEACE. BUT IF

YOU DO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS CHRIST.

YES.

THAT IS YOUR INHERITANCE.

NOW, REMEMBER THIS,

PRAISE CONFUSES THE ENEMY.

BECAUSE IT'S THE LANGUAGE OF

HEAVEN AND THE DEVIL DOES

NOT UNDERSTAND IT. I WANT TO

PUT SOMETHING INTO YOUR

HANDS AND IT'S PRAISE. AND

IT'S SIMPLY, WHEN YOU TAKE

THE P OFF OF PRAISE, IT RAISES

YOU UP, AND IT TAKES YOU

OUT OF YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES.

SO, I WONDER IF YOU'VE

THANKED GOD FOR YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCE. I KNOW IT'S

BEEN TOUGH, I KNOW YOU

HATE PROBABLY WHAT YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH AND THERE'S

NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. BUT

HAVE YOU THANKED GOD,

BECAUSE HE SAID IN ALL THINGS,

GIVE THANKS. I'M GOING TO

PRAY FOR YOU AND I'M GOING TO

ASK YOU TO CONTINUE TO PRAY

THIS BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO

SEE A BREAKTHROUGH, BUT

YOU GOT TO PRAISE YOUR

WAY THROUGH BECAUSE IT

CONFUSES THE ENEMY. FATHER

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I PRAY

THAT AS YOUR SON AND

DAUGHTER STAND ON THE

HUNDRED SONG, COMING INTO

YOUR GATES WITH THE

THANKSGIVING WITH YOUR

COURTS WITH PRAISE, THAT

RIME OF WORD WOULD BREAK

EVERY CHAIN AND CAUSE NOW

LORD, EVERY DOOR TO FLY OPEN

FOR YOUR GLORY AND HONOR, IN

JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. WELL WE SURE

ENJOYED BEING WITH YOU HERE

EVERY DAY. WE HOPE THAT

YOU'LL JOIN US AGAIN, RIGHT

BRIAN WARREN?

ABSOLUTELY. IT WAS SO

GOOD, LET'S DO IT AGAIN

TOMORROW.

ALRIGHT.

UNTIL NEXT TIME I'M

BRIAN WARREN.

I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON, HAVE A GREAT

DAY CANADA.
