The 700 Club - April 11, 2014

Drugs, truancy and crime defined Darryll’s life in his teen years and contributed to an aimless existence as a young adult that escalated to include murder. Plus, stage 4 cancer near his brain put a number on Jacob's remaining days. Read Transcript


WE KNOW WHAT'S COMING.

COLORADO'S POT PROBLEM.

IT'S HORRIFYING.

Consuelo:

Gordon: WHY MEDICAL

MARIJUANA IS ONLY THE

BEGINNING.

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE

CALLS THEM THE iPOD.

THE BEST ROUTE TO MAKE

MONEY WAS TO DEAL DRUGS.

Gordon: A DRUG DEALER

BLACKS OUT AND WAKES UP AS A

MURDER.

I HAD NO IDEA AND HOW

MANY TIMES I HAD STABBED MY

VICTIM.

Gordon: HIS REDEMPTION

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS ARE

PUSHING THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TO SLOW DOWN

ITS PLAN FOR THE INTERNET.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS MOVING TO

GIVE UP THE ADMINISTRATION'S

CONTROL OF THE WORLD WIDE

WEB.

Wendy: CRITICS SAY THAT

COULD BE BAD FOR FREE

SPEECH, AND EVEN BUSINESS

AROUND THE WORLD.

JENNIFEJENNIFER WISHON HAS

THE STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AMERICA HAS

ALWAYS BEEN THE MAIN PLAYER

IN MANAGING THE WORLD WIDE

WEB, EVEN CONSERVATIVES WHO

TYPICALLY WANT TO LIMIT THE

ROLE OF GOVERNMENT FACE AN

EXAMPLE OF WASHINGTON DOING

SOMETHING WELL.

IT IS A R VERY RELAXED

CONTROL, WHICH IS WHY I

THINK WE HAVE SEEN THE

INTERNET GROW TO BE AN

INCREDIBLE VOICE OF FREEDOM,

NOT JUST IN THE UNITED

STATES, BUT AROUND THE

WORLD.

Reporter: IN THE

1980s, THE GOVERNMENT

FORMED ICAN, WHICH GOVERNS

THE SYSTEM THAT ASSIGNS

WEBSITE ADDRESSES AND TRACKS

INTERNET TRAFFIC.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT EVERY

TRANSACTION ON GOOGLE.

Reporter: BUT FOLLOWING

EDWARD SNOWDEN'S REVELATIONS

ABOUT AMERICA'S SPYING

ACTIVITIES, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS STEALING

INTERNATIONAL PRESSURE TO

GIVE AWAY THE AUTHORITY TO

DIRECT WEB TRAFFIC.

EVEN THE HEAD OF ICAN SAYS

EVERYONE WITH AN INTEREST IN

THE INTERNET DESERVES A

VOICE IN THE MANAGEMENT OF

IT AS EQUAL PARTNERS.

BUT THE BIG QUESTION IS: IF

THE U.S INTERNET ISN'T IN

U.S. HANDS, WHO'S HANDS WILL

IT BE.

CHINA IS WAITING.

AND THERE IS THE

INTERNATIONAL

TELECOMMUNICATIONS UNION.

IT IS CONTROLLED BY BAD

ACTORS.

IN FACT, THEY HAVE PASSED A

RESOLUTION THROUGH THAT WILL

ALLOW GOVERNMENTS TO SHUT

OFF WEBSITES, AND THAT WILL

BE A VIOLATION OF HUMAN

RIGHTS.

Reporter: INDEED, MANY

CRITICS WORRY IF ANOTHER

COUNTRY OR COUNTRIES TAKE

OVER MANAGING THE WEB, IT

COULD LEAD TO THE

SUPPRESSION OF FREE SPEECH,

POSSIBLY EVEN HURTING

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS OVER

THE WEB.

CONGRESS IS CONSIDERING TWO

ACTIONS: ONE DELAYS THE

TRANSFER OF CONTROL.

ANOTHER REQUIRES

CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL

BEFORE THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION CAN ACT.

AND THERE IS BIPARTISAN

CONCERN.

EVEN FORMER PRESIDENT BILL

CLINTON THINKS THE

ADMINISTRATION'S PLANS ARE A

BAD IDEA.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BEEN TRYING TO TAKE THIS

AUTHORITY AWAY FROM THE

UNITED STATES WANTED TO DO

IT FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF

CRACKING DOWN ON INTERNET

FREEDOM AND LIMITING IT AND

HAVING GOVERNMENTS PROTECT

THEIR BACKSIDES NEVADO

BACKSIDES INSTEAD OF EMPOWER

THEIR PEOPLE.

Reporter: MANY

AMERICANS ARE ALSO

CONCERNED.

NEARLY 120,000 PEOPLE HAVE

SIGNED THIS PETITION TO KEEP

THE CONTROL OF THE INTERNET

IN THE LAND OF THE FREE.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: THE ISSUE HERE

IS DO YOU WANT THE U.S.

CONSTITUTION BACK-STOPPING

YOUR RIGHTS OF FREE SPEECH

ON THE INTERNET, OR DO YOU

WANT TOLALLOW SOME

INTERNATIONAL CONSORTIUM,

CREATED BY RUSSIA, CHINA,

THE UNITED STATES, THE U.N.,

HAVING THAT BACK STOP.

AND UNDER THE U.N. CHARTER,

THERE IS NO BILL OF RIGHTS

AND NO GUARANTEE OF FREE

SPEECH.

SO IF YOU WANT TO GET

INVOLVED IN THIS, GO TO

ACLJ.ORG AND YOU CAN SIGN

THAT PETITION.

THE PRESIDENT IS GETTING A

NEW SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

Reporter: GORDON, THE

WOMAN WHO HAS BEEN IN CHARGE

OF OVERSEEING THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE IS

RESIGNING SIX MONTHS AFTER

ITS BOTCH ROLLOUT, AND

REPUBLICANS ARE RESPONDING

WITH FRESH CALLS OF REPEAL.

THEY SAY THE PROBLEMS WITH

OBAMACARE OF STILL HERE,

DESPITE KATHLEEN SEBELIUS

LEAVING.

Reporter: HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY

KATHLEEN SEBELIUS IS OUT,

AND SYLVIA MATTHEWS IS SET

TO TAKE HER PLACE.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

HOPING A NEW FACE IN CHARGE

OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

WILL SIGNIFY A FRESH START

FOR OBAMACARE.

THE WEBSITE HAS NEVER

CRASHED.

IT IS FUNCTIONAL BUT AT A

VERY SLOW SPEED AND VERY LOW

RELIABILITY.

Reporter: IT WAS

PLAGUED BY THE DISASTEROUS

ROLLOUT OF THE HEALTH CARE

LAW, INCLUDING THE GLITCHES

ON HEALTHCARE.GOV.

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY

RELIABLE DATA AROUND

ENROLLMENT, WHICH IS WHY WE

HAVEN'T GIVEN IT TO DATE.

Reporter: AND SHE ALSO

BORE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE

CONTRACEPTION MANDATE THAT

FORCES RELIGIOUS BUSINESS

OWNERS AND GROUPS TO SUPPLY

DRUGS THAT MAY INDUCE

ABORTION.

IT IS THE GOVERNMENT

TELLING PEOPLE TO VIOLATE

THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, AND

IF YOU DON'T, YOU'LL SUFFER

PENALTY.

Reporter: BUT

REPUBLICANS SAY IT IS NOT

KATHLEEN SEBELIUS THAT IS

FLAWED.

IT IS THE HEALTH CARE

SYSTEM.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

FIGHTING CRITICS BY

TAUGHTING NEW ENROLLMENT

NUMBERS.

THEY SAY 7.5 MILLION PEOPLE

SIGNED UP BY THE MARCH

31st DEADLINE, EXCEEDING

EXPECTATIONS.

BUT TWO NEW REPORTS CAST

DOUBTS ON THE NUMBERS.

IT CITES STUDIES BY THE RAND

CORPORATION.

THEY SHOW ONLY 3.9 MILLION

PEOPLE ACTUALLY ENROLLED

INSURANCE PLANS, A NUMBER

THAT FALSE FAR BELOW EVEN

THE LOWEST ENROLLMENT

EXPECTATIONS.

AND THOSE WHO DID ENROLL DO

NO HAVE THE SUPPORT NEEDED.

AND THEY ACTUALLY REQUIRE

MORE MEDICAL ATTENTION THAN

PREVIOUS RISK POOLS, SIGNS

THAT HUGE CHALLENGES STILL

REMAIN FOR OBAMACARE, ALL

PROBLEMS WAITING FOR THE NEW

HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

SECRETARY.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE

HAS VOTED TO HOLD FORMER

I.R.S. OFFICIAL LOIS LERNER

IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS

BECAUSE HE HAS REFUSED TO

ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT HER

INVOLVEMENT IN THE TEA PARTY

SCANDAL.

LAWMAKERS WANT TO KNOW WHY

THE I.R.S. TARGETED TEA

PARTY AND OTHER CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS, AND THEY SAY LERNER

IS BLOCKING THEM FROM

FINDING THE TRUTH.

LAWYERS BELIEVE POLITICS IS

BEHIND LERNER'S ACTIONS AND

SAY DEMOCRATS HAVE ALWAYS

BEEN CRITICAL OF THE TEA

PARTY MOVEMENT, BUT DARRELL

ISSA SAID DEMOCRATS AND THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ARE

SIMPLY SCARED OF THE TEA

PARTY.

I THINK THE PRESIDENT

REALLY, REALLY DOES FEAR

THEM.

YOU CAN GO AFTER THE COKE

BROTHERS BY NAME.

BUT THE TEA PARTY ISN'T ONE

PARTY OR GROUP.

IT IS PEOPLE ALL AROUND

AMERICA WHO SIMPLY WANT TO

GET BACK TO THE PRINCIPLES

OF LIBERTY.

THE NEW YORK CITY MAYOR

PLANS TO ALLOW KEEPING

PEOPLE WORSHIPPING IN PUBLIC

SCHOOLS.

CONGREGATIONS COULD HAVE

BEEN LEFT WITHOUT HOMES IF

DE BLAZIO HADN'T ACTED.

THE BAN WAS INS INSTITUTED

UNDER FORMER MAYOR MICHAEL

BLOOMBERG.

BUT DE BLAZIO SAYS HE

BELIEVES A FAITH-BASED

INSTITUTION HAS THE RIGHT,

LIKE ANYONE ELSE, TO USE

THOSE SPACES IN SCHOOLS.

AND HE'LL UPDATE THE RULES

ON THE ISSUE.

COMPUTER EXPERTS ARE STILL

WORKING ON FIXES FOR

HEARTBLEED.

IT HAS PUT INFORMATION AT

RISK OF BEING EXPOSED.

THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE

ENCRYPTION TECHNOLOGY.

IT ALLOWS CRIMINALS TO VIEW

THAT TRAFFIC, EVEN IF THE

SECURITY IS SUPPOSEDLY

WORKING.

THE RESEARCHERS SAY THE

THREAT IS INDEED SERIOUS,

AND THEY'RE ADVISING PEOPLE

TO CHANGE ALL OF THEIR

PASSWORDS.

IT COULD EXTEND TO TABLETS,

AND PROBABLY EVEN SOME

SMARTPHONES.

GORDON, THIS WAS A SERIOUS

BREACH.

Gordon: IT IS, AND YOU

CAN'T OVEREMPHASIS HOW

SERIOUS THIS IS.

IT PUTS EVERY CREDIT CARD

NUMBER YOU HAVE AT RISK.

AND THE OTHER PROBLEM IS,

REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU DO IN

TERMS OF CHANGING THE

NUMBERS AND THE PASSWORDS,

UNTIL A FIX IS PUT INTO

PLACE, CHANGING YOUR

PASSWORD ISN'T GOING TO HELP

YOU AT ALL BECAUSE THEY'LL

JUST BE ABLE TO READ YOUR

NEW PASSWORD.

SO WE'VE GOT TO GET THE FIX

UP AND IN PLACE, AND THEN

EVERYONE IS GOING TO HAVE TO

BE CHANGING EVERY SINGLE

PASSWORD YOU HAVE.

WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, CANDY

THAT CAUSES THE MUNCHIES.

IF WE DON'T STOP IT, THIS

IS THE BIRTH OF THE NEXT

TOBACCO INDUSTRY.

Wendy: IT IS ALL PART

OF COLORADO'S NEW ATTITUDE

TOWARDS MARIJUANA.

WE'LL HEAR FROM BOTH SIDES,

NEXT.

Gordon: AT LEAST 15

STATES ARE THINKING ABOUT

LEGALIZING MARIJUANA.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY HOPE THE

SALES FROM MARIJUANA WILL

BRING IN MORE TAX MONEY.

AS HEATHER CELLS REPORTS,

THERE ARE ALSO NEW CONCERNS

ABOUT THE COSTS.

P.

Reporter: COLORADO

MERCHANTS BEGAN SELLING

MARIJUANA FOR RECREATIONAL

USE ON JANUARY 1st, AND

ALREADY THE VARIETY OF NEW

MERCHANDISE IS

MIND-BLOWING.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

PRODUCTS.

Reporter: FROM PLANT

VARIETIES, EACH WITH ITS OWN

SMELL AND UNIQUE CAR

CHARACTERISTICS, AND THE

FOOD, SWEDISH FISH, AND

SO-CALLED OATMEAL

SANDWICHES, JUST TO NAME A

FEW.

IN MANY WAYS, COLORADO IS

STILL IN THE HONEYMOON PHASE

OF MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION.

PEOPLE ARE CAUGHT UP IN THE

EXCITEMENT OF NEW PRODUCTS

AND NEW GROWTH.

AND THE GOVERNOR IS LOOKING

FORWARD TO MORE THAN $

$90 MILLION FROM MARIJUANA.

BUT MANY SAY, NOT SO FAST.

AFTER WORKING IN TOBACCO

EDUCATION FOR YEARS, BOB

DOYLE NOW SPEAKS OUT AGAINST

MARIJUANA.

WE KNOW WHAT IS COMING.

IF WE DON'T STOP IT, THIS IS

THE BIRTH OF THE NEXT

TOBACCO INDUSTRY.

IT WILL BE LIKE EVERY OTHER

DRUG, WHERE THE SOCIETAL

COSTS ARE MUCH BIGGER THAN

ANY COMMUNITY IS GOING TO

MAKE ON THIS.

Reporter: COSTS LIKE

TREATING MARIJUANA

ADDICTION.

STUDENT USE IS QUICKLY

RISING, THANKS TO THE

LEGALIZATION OF MEDICAL

MARIJUANA.

TWICE AS MANY DENVER EIGHTH

GRADERS USE POT THAN OTHER

EIGHTH GRADERS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY, AND ALMOST

ONE-THIRD OF DENVER HIGH

SCHOOL SENIORS CONSUMED THE

DRUG.

LEGALIZING IT CREATES

MORE PROMOTION, CREATES

GREATER ACCESS TO THE DRUG,

AND ALSO LEGITIMIZES THE

DRUG.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

PRODUCTS DOYLE IS MOST

CONCERNED ABOUT, THIS SLEEK

LOOKING VA VAPORIZER.

IN MANY CASES, IT IS A

CONCEALER.

AND IT POSSESS ANOTHER

DANGER, ATTRACTING YOUNG

PEOPLE BY MARKETING A

WHOLESOME, HEALTHY IMAGE.

JOE WORKS AT A DRUG TESTING

COMPANY, AND FINDS MANY KIDS

ARE SIMPLY NOT CONCERNED

ABOUT POT.

THEY SAY, IT'S GOOD FOR

US.

IT IS MEDICINE.

IT'S HEALTHY.

Reporter: PARENTS, SHE

SAYS, OFTEN CONTRIBUTE TO

THIS FALSE SENSE OF

SECURITY, NOT REALIZING THAT

TODAY'S MARIJUANA IS MUCH

MORE POTENT THAN THE DRUG OF

THEIR DAY.

ONE TIME WE HEARD A DAD

SAY, WELL, THEY'RE JUST

GOING TO, LIKE, SLEEP ALL OF

THE TIME AND HAVE MUNCHIES.

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?

WELL, WE'RE SEEING

WITHDRAWAL SIGNS OF ANGER

AND RAGE, AND REAL

WITHDRAWAL WHEN THEY CAN'T

HAVE THEIR PRODUCT.

I THINK THE SCHOOLS ARE VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT STUDENTS

COMING TO SCHOOL UNDER THE

INFLUENCE.

Reporter: CHRIS HARMS

OF THE STATE SCHOOL SAFETY

RESOURCE CENTER HOPES

PARENTS WILL TEACH THEIR

CHILDREN ABOUT THE DANGERS

OF POT.

SHE ALSO HAS A MESSAGE FOR

OTHER STATES THAT ENVY

COLORADO'S SEEMING FINANCIAL

WINDFALL.

PEOPLE MAY SEE THE TAX

MONEY BEING GENERATED, BUT

NOT THINKING ABOUT ALL OF

THE OTHER HIDDEN COSTS OF

MARIJUANA.

WE DON'T KNOW, FOR INSTANCE,

HOW MANY MORE SUBSTANCE

ABUSE TREATMENT FACILITIES

WE'RE GOING TO NEED.

Reporter: LEGALIZATION

SUPPORTERS SAY THEY ALSO

BELIEVE IN EDUCATING KIDS

ABOUT THE DANGERS OF

MARIJUANA.

BUT THEY ARGUE THAT

LEGALIZATION IS THE BEST WAY

TO LIMIT THEIR ACCESS.

CBN NEWS INTERVIEWED MASON

LAST YEAR, BEFORE HE BECAME

A NATIONAL SPOKESMAN FOR THE

MARIJUANA PROJECT.

WE KNOW THAT ALCOHOL

PROHIBITION FAILED AND

CAUSED MORE PROBLEMS THAN IT

SOLVED.

WE'RE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION

WITH MARIJUANA, AND WE NEED

TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO

KEEP MARIJUANA AWAY FROM

YOUNG PEOPLE, AND THAT

INCLUDES REGULATING IT AND

CONTROLLING IT AND TAXING

IT.

Reporter: IT WILL BE

YEARS BEFORE THE SMOKE

CLEARS AND WE UNDERSTAND THE

FULL EFFECT OF

LEGALIZATION.

FINANCIAL EXPERTS SAY TAXES

WILL FLUCTUATE AS OTHER

STATES JOIN COLORADO, AND

THE MARKETPLACE EXPERIMENTS

WITH PRICING AND PRODUCTS.

ON THE DOWNSIDE, QUESTIONS

REMAIN ON HOW MUCH ADDICTION

RATES WILL GROW, WHAT IT

WILL MEAN FOR EDUCATION, AND

CREATING A COMPETITIVE

WORKFORCE.

IN THE MEANTIME, AGIRE IS

BEEFING UP HER STAFF IN THE

SPIKE.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY

TIMES I'VE HAD THE MOTHER OR

FATHER WHO COME UP TO ME AND

SAY, I HAD THE GOOD STUDENT,

THE GOOD ATHLETE, AND

THEY'VE BEEN SMOKING

MARIJUANA, AND IT'S NO

LONGER.

THEIR MOTIVATION IS GONE.

THEIR ACADEMICS HAVE GONE

DOWN.

THEIR ATHLETICS HAVE GONE

AWAY.

AND IT'S HORRIFYING.

Reporter: REPORTING IN

DENVER, HEATHER CELLS, CBN

NEWS.

Gordon: THERE IS A

REALLY GOOD ARGUMENT FOR

DECRIMINALIZING MARIJUANA.

WE'VE GOT A PRISON

POPULATION THAT IS EXPLODING

AS A RESULT OF THE DRUG

LAWS.

AT THE SAME TIME, ONCE YOU

LEGALIZE IT AND MAKE IT

READILY AVAILABLE, ARE WE

READY AS A SOCIETY TO DEAL

WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF

THAT?

A PORTION OF THE POPULATION,

ROUGHLY 10%, OF THOSE WHO

TRY THIS DRUG, BECOME

HABITUAL USERS MANY TIMES A

DAY.

AND WHAT DOES THAT DO TO

YOUR SOCIETY?

WHAT DOES THAT DO TO YOUR

WORKFORCE?

WHAT DOES THAT DO TO YOUR

WELFARE ROLES?

WHAT DOES THAT DO TO FOOD

STAMPS?

THERE IS A COST TO THIS.

AND IF YOU'RE JUST LOOKING

AT THE INCOME SIDE FROM

TAXING THE SALE, YOU'RE NOT

GETTING AN ACCURATE

PICTURE.

THERE IS A REAL DOWNSIDE

HERE, AND WE'RE GOING TO

FIND IT IN JUST A FEW

YEARS.

WENDY?

Wendy: COMING UP, THE

DRUG DEALER WHO BROUGHT A

KNIFE TO A FIST FIGHT.

WITHIN A FEW SECONDS, WE

WERE IN QUITE THE FIGHT.

I KNEW WHEN I STABBED HIM

THE LAST TIME, THAT HE WAS

SOON TO BE DEAD.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHAT

HAPPENED AFTER HE GOT

CAUGHT, NEXT.

Gordon: COMING UP...

THE CANCER WAS EATING A

HOLE THROUGH MY SKULL, AND

HEADED TOWARDS THE BRAIN.

Gordon: WHY HE STOPPED

THE TREATMENTS.

I TOLD HIM, DOCTOR, I'M

DONE.

Gordon: AND WHAT SAVED

HIS LIFE.

BY HIS STRIPES I AM

HEALED.

Gordon: LATER ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Gordon: HAROLD DAVIS

WAS NO LONGER A FREE MAN.

HE HAD BEEN CONVICTED OF

MURDER AND WAS SENT TO

PRISON.

AND AS DARYL WALKED INTO HIS

NEW HOME, ONE THOUGHT

FLOODED HIS MIND: DON'T LET

THE SAME MAN WALK OUT.

Reporter: TO SOME,

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, IS A

THRIVING HUB OF COMMERCE AND

ENTERPRISE.

BUT DARYL DAVIS KNOWS A

DIFFERENT SIDE OF HIS CITY.

I DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING

ABOUT POVERTY OR SEE

ANYTHING ABOUT CRIME.

MY FATHER WAS IN AND OUT OF

PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTES QUITE

OFTEN.

HE WOULD BE DELUSION NAL.

AL.

THE FEAR THAT IMPARTED INTO

MY LIFE WAS SOMETHING I

WOULD CARRY FOR ALL OF MY

LIFE.

Reporter: THE FAMILY'S

UTILITIES WERE OFTEN CUT

OFF, AND DARYL AND HIS FOUR

SIBLINGS NEVER KNEW IF THEY

WOULD EAT THAT DAY.

NOT ONLY WHERE THE NEXT

MEAL WOULD COME FROM -- THAT

WAS PROBABLY THE MOST

DIFFICULT ISSUE.

Reporter: WHEN DARYL

WAS A TEENAGER, HIS PARENTS

DIVORCED.

IN THE COURT'S EYES, I

WAS OLD ENOUGH TO CHOOSE WHO

I WAS GOING TO STAY WITH.

AND INDEED I DID, I STAYED

WITH MY FATHER, WHICH WAS

NOT A GOOD THING.

Reporter: HIS FATHER

STARTED DRINKING HEAVILY AND

PROSTITUTING WOMEN OUT OF

HIS HOME.

WHEN DARYL WAS JUST 15, HIS

FATHER THREW HIM OUT ON THE

STREET.

I PICKED A FEW THINGS I

OWNED, AND FOUND A PARKING

LOT IN DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE.

Reporter: THAT CAR

WOULD BE HIS HOME FOR THE

NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS.

I REMEMBER UNRAVELING A

BAG OF CHIPS AND EATING

THOSE AND THINKING, I HOPE

THESE LAST FOR A DAY OR

TWO.

I REMEMBER THE HURT AND THE

FEARS.

I WASN'T SURE WHERE I WAS

GOING TO TURN TO.

Reporter: DARYL

WANDERED THE STREETS,

EVENTUALLY LANDING A JOB AS

A DISHWASHER.

DARYL'S WAGES WAS JUST

ENOUGH TO PAY FOR HIS FOOD

AND HIS NEWLY FORMED DRUG

HABIT.

I WAS PRETTY HEAVY INTO

DRUGS.

DIDN'T KNOW WHERE I WOULD

ACQUIRE THE NEXT DRUGS I WAS

LOOKING FOR.

Reporter: DARYL LATER

MARRIED AND MOVED IN WITH

HIS SISTER.

HE ALSO FOUND A

NOUVEAUCATION.

>A NEW -- NEW VOCATION.

THE BEST WAY TO MAKE

MONEY WAS TO DEAL DRUGS.

Reporter: ONE DAY DARYL

RECEIVED AN INDICTMENT OF

DRUG CHARGES.

HE REALIZED THE FRIEND HAD

RATTED HIM OUT.

ARMED WITH A KNIFE, HE WENT

TO THE MAN'S APARTMENT.

HE WAS STAYING AT A

FRIEND'S BARBER SHOP.

I REMEMBER WALKING THROUGH

THE DOOR AND CONFRONTING

HIM.

AND IT ESCALATED IN A SHORT

TIME.

HE GRABBED THE KNIFE, AND

WITHIN A FEW SECONDS, WE

WERE IN QUITE THE FIGHT.

AND WE LANDED ON THE

OUTSIDE, ON THE CONCRETE.

Reporter: DURING THE

FIGHT, DARYL SAYS HE BLACKED

OUT.

I HAD NO IDEA HOW MANY

TIMES I HAD STABBED MY

VICTIM.

I KNEW WHEN I STABBED HIM

THE LAST TIME, THAT HE WAS

SOON TO BE DEAD.

HE PUT HIS HAND OVER HIS

MOUTH.

HE WHISPERED, OH, GOD.

THOSE WORDS CONTINUE TO ECHO

IN MY MIND AS I LEFT.

Reporter: DARYL WAS

ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH

MURDER.

AFTER HE WAS RELEASED ON

BOND, HE WENT HOME AND

STARTED GETTING HIGH.

BUT THIS TIME IT WAS

DIFFERENT.

I WAS SITTING IN A

RECLINER, LISTENING TO MUSIC

WITH A JOINT GOING.

I REMEMBER THE PRESENCE OF

GOD JUST SETTLING AROUND

ME.

SOMETHING VERY FOREIGN TO

ME.

I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW EXACTLY

WHAT WAS GOING ON.

ALL I KNOW IS THAT FOR THE

FIRST TIME I WAS ABLE TO

FEEL REMORSE BEGIN TO WORK

IN MY HEART.

I BEGAN TO REALLY

CONTEMPLATE WHAT I HAD

DONE.

I THOUGHT ABOUT THE CRIME

AND THE SCENE OF IT, AND ALL

OF THE HORROR IT ENTAILED.

I REMEMBERED EVERY DETAIL

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

I GOT ON MY FACE, AND THAT

WEEPING TURNED TO A

CONVULSIVE CRYING, AND MY

HIGH WAS GONE.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

DARYL ASKED CHRIST INTO HIS

HEART.

TWO YEARS LATER, HE WENT TO

TRIAL AND WAS GIVEN A LIFE

SENTENCE.

AND IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR

HIS NEWFOUND FAITH TO BE

TESTED.

I SAW A FRIEND OF MINE

THAT I GREW UP IN THE

STREETS WITH.

AND HE SAID, YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO BELIEVE THIS,

DARYL, WE RUN THIS YARD.

WE'VE GOT PEOPLE BRINGING IN

DRUGS.

AS TEMPTING AS IT WAS, I HAD

TO SAY NO.

I SAID, I CAN'T DO THIS.

MY LIFE HAS RADICALLY

CHANGED.

I ACCEPTED THE LORD IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: HIS FRIEND'S

RESPONSE STUNNED HIM.

AND HE SAID, WELL, THAT'S

GOOD.

THAT'S REALLY GOOD.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH IT AT

ALL.

HE SAID, ONE THING I KNOW

ABOUT YOU, DARYL, IF YOU

SAID YOU'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING, YOU DID IT.

WE BELIEVE YOU'RE GOING TO

DO THIS.

AND I WAS OFF DRUGS.

AND I THOUGHT, THIS IS

INCREDIBLE.

THIS IS GOD.

Reporter: DARYL LED

BIBLE STUDIES IN PRISON, AND

TOOK EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO

SHARE CHRIST WITH HIS FELLOW

INMATES, AND HE ALSO EARNED

AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE.

DESPITE HIS MODEL BEHAVIOR,

DARYL WAS DENIED PAROLE

TWICE.

THE SECOND TIME CAME AT 18

YEARS.

I WENT BACK TO MY CELL

AND I POURED MY HEART OUT TO

THE LORD.

I REMEMBER HIM SPEAKING TO

ME SO WELL.

THERE WAS A KNOWINGNESS THAT

IF I WOULD JUST TAKE ONE DAY

AT A TIME, PUT MY FEET ON

THE FLOOR, THE NEXT DAY HE

WOULD MEET ME WITH GRACE.

Reporter: HE WAS

RELEASED AFTER 22 YEARS, AND

HE MARRIED TIFFANY, AND HE

NOW LEADS A MINISTRY CALLED

"PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD."

I SIT HERE TODAY

BELIEVING THAT GOD IS

SOVEREIGN.

HE WAS THERE IN MY

HARDSHIPS, MY ADVERSITIES,

AND THE GOOD TIMES, AND

EVERY TIME IN MY LIFE.

I CAN'T IMAGINE ONE DAY

WITHOUT HIS LOVE.

ONE DAY WITHOUT HIS GRACE,

HIS MERCY.

AND EVERY SINGLE DAY, WHEN I

WAKE UP, I FILL THAT NEED.

I SURROUND THE DAY WITH

TOTAL LOVE WITH MY SAVIOR,

MY CREATOR, MY GOD, JESUS

CHRIST.

HE IS MY LOVE.

Gordon: IF YOU WAKE UP,

PUT YOUR FEET ON THE FLOOR,

GOD WILL MEET YOU WITH

GRACE.

WHAT HAPPENED WITH DARYL CAN

HAPPEN TO YOU.

YOU CAN TURN AROUND.

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

WHAT USED TO BE A LIFE OF

RAGE, OF NOT KNOWING WHERE

YOU'RE GOING WHEN YOU DIE,

NOT HAVING ANY PURPOSE, IT

CAN ALL TURN AROUND.

AND GOD SAYS TO YOU, I HAVE

PLANS FOR YOU.

I HAVE A HOPE AND A

PURPOSE.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS FOR

YOU.

AND HE'LL SHOW IT TO YOU.

AND JUST LIKE HE DID WITH

DARYL, HE'LL SPEAK TO YOU.

YOU CAN HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIM.

AND IT'S WONDERFUL.

AND IT'S NOT A RELATIONSHIP

WHERE IT'S ALL OF THE THINGS

YOU CAN'T DO.

IT'S A RELATIONSHIP WHERE

HE'LL SHOW YOU A LIFE OF

ADVENTURE.

WHEN YOU GET HOOKED UP WITH

GOD, WHEN HE IS IN YOU AND

ALL AROUND YOU, THEN

INCREDIBLE THINGS CAN

HAPPEN.

MIRACLES CAN HAPPEN, AND YOU

CAN SEE THEM WITH YOUR OWN

EYES.

NOW, IF YOU WANT THIS, HERE

IS HOW YOU GET IT.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN YOU

SEEK ME WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, THEN YOU'LL FIND ME.

AND IF YOU DO THAT, IF YOU

SEEK HIM WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, YOU'LL FIND HIM.

HE SAYS, BE HOLD I STAND AT

THE DOOR, KNOCKING.

THAT MEANS HE IS RIGHT

THERE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO FAR TO

SEE HIM.

HE IS RIGHT THERE.

IF ANYONE HEAR MY VOICE AND

OPEN THE DOOR, I'LL COME

IN.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF

HE'S CALLING TO YOU RIGHT

NOW, IF YOU'RE WANTING A

CHANGE, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW

THIS IS REAL, THAT HE'S

REAL, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

ASK.

SO BOW YOUR HEAD WITH ME.

LET'S PRAY A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER AND LET JESUS COME

INTO YOUR LIFE TODAY.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, JUST

SAY HIS NAME.

JESUS.

SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I OPEN THE DOOR OF MY

HEART, AND I ASK THAT YOU

COME IN.

I ASK THAT YOU HAVE MERCY ON

ME.

AND THAT YOU WOULD MEET ME

WITH YOUR GRACE AND YOUR

FORGIVENESS.

FORGIVE ME.

SET ME FREE.

CLEANSE ME.

AND SHOW ME THE PLANS THAT

YOU HAVE FOR ME.

PLANS TO GIVE ME A HOPE AND

A FUTURE WITH YOU.

AND, JESUS, IF YOU ANSWER

ME, IF YOU COME INTO MY

HEART RIGHT NOW, I WANT TO

FOLLOW YOU ALL THE DAYS OF

MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I PRAY A BAPTISM IN

YOUR LOVE.

I PRAY THAT YOUR PRESENCE

AND YOUR HOLINESS WOULD

SURROUND THEM.

AND OVERWHELM THEM AND BE IN

THEM.

FROM THIS DAY FORWARD.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I'VE

GOT SOMETHING I WANT TO GIVE

YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN HERE IS A C.D. ON HOW TO

LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE.

WHAT DO I DO NOW?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE?

AND WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS

FOR ME?

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET A

BIBLE, TOO, AND START

READING IT.

IT IS THROUGH READING THE

BIBLE THAT YOU RENEW YOUR

MIND.

AND YOU START TO THINK THE

THOUGHTS THAT GOD THINKS

ABOUT YOU, NOT THE THOUGHTS

THAT YOU THINK OR THE WORLD

THINKS.

YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR

THINKING, AND YOU DO THAT BY

READING THE BIBLE EVERY

DAY.

I ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN

A LOCAL CHURCH AND GO

THROUGH WATER BAPTISM.

ALL OF THAT IS IMPORTANT.

ALL OF THAT IS NECESSARY FOR

THE CHRISTIAN LIFE.

BUT IT STARTS WITH THAT

PHONE CALL.

MAKE IT NOW.

JUST CONFESS.

I BELIEVE IN MY HEART AND I

WANT TO CONFESS WITH MY

MOUTH THAT JESUS ANSWERED MY

PRAYER AND CAME INTO MY

HEART.

THE NUMBER IS TOLL-FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

WENDY, OVER TO YOU.

Wendy: THANKS, GORDON.

UP NEXT, AN AMAZING STORY, A

CANCER PATIENT IS TOLD HE'S

GOT FIVE YEARS TO LIVE.

HE SAID, EVEN IF IT WENT

INTO REMISSION, THAT THE

LEVEL THAT IT'S AT AND THE

AGGRESSIVENESS THAT ITS AT,

IT'S GOING TO COME BACK.

Wendy: SO FIND OUT WHY

THIS MAN IS STILL ALIVE

AFTER STOPPING TREATMENTS,

NEXT.

WELCOME BACK BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

RELIGIOUS EXPRESSIONS IN THE

EXPRESSING THEIR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS.

CONGRESSMAN RANDY FORBES AND

41 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WROTE

TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, ASKING

FOR AN EXPLANATION OF THE

INCIDENT.

FORBIDDING MILITARY MEMBERS

PRACTICING THE VERY CONCEPTS

THEY'RE DEFENDING IS

UNCONSCIONABLE.

VILLAGE RESIDENTS ARE FACED

WITH THE HARD TASK OF

FEEDING LOCAL CHILDREN WHO

COME KNOCKING AT THEIR

DOORS.

A LOCAL RESIDENT PRAYED TO

GOD, PROMISING SHE WILL HELP

FEED THE LOCAL CHILDREN WITH

THE LORD'S HELP.

WENDY?

Wendy: WELL, MEDICALLY

SPEAKING, JACOB BOGER SHOULD

BE DEAD.

MORE THAN 10 YEARS AGO, HE

WAS GIVEN JUST FIVE YEARS TO

LIVE.

HE TRIED ALL SORTS OF

CHEMO.

AND THEN ONE NIGHT HE

DECIDED TO STOP THE MEDICINE

AND WAIT FOR A MIRACLE.

Reporter: JACOB BOGER

HAD SEVERE HEADACHES, WATERY

EYES, AND FELT FATIGUED ALL

OF THE TIME.

M.R.I.TESTS SHOWED A TUMOR

IN HIS NASAL CAVITY BEHIND

HIS EYES.

AND A SUBSEQUENT BIOPSY

DISCOVERED EVEN MORE,

CANCER.

I HAD IGNORED THE

SYMPTOMS SO LONG, THAT BY

THE TIME WE DID THE BIOPSY,

I WAS IN A FOURTH STAGE,

GIVEN LESS THAN A 10% CHANCE

TO LIVE.

THE CANCER WAS EATING A HOLE

THROUGH MY SKULL AND HEADED

TOWARDS THE BRAIN.

Reporter: JACOB NEEDED

IMMEDIATE CHEMO AND

RADIATION.

HIS DOCTOR TOLD HIM ABOUT

THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS.

IT IS GOING TO MAKE YOU

STERILE.

YOUR SALIVA GLANDS ARE GOING

TO BE DESTROYED.

YOUR TASTEBUDS ARE GOING TO

BE DESTROYED.

THE RADIATION THAT WILL GO

WITH THIS TREATMENT WILL

TOTALLY DESTROY YOUR HAIR

FOLLICLES.

Reporter: JESSICA WAS

JACOB'S GIRLFRIEND AT THE

TIME.

I REMEMBER THAT NIGHT I

WAS DRIVING HIM HOME FROM A

RESTAURANT, AND HE TOLD ME.

HE TOLD ME, THE DOCTORS TOLD

MEAME I'M NOT GOING TO BE

ABLE TO HAVE CHILDREN.

AND I REMEMBER THAT MOMENT,

AND A TEAR ROLLED DOWN HIS

CHEEK IN THE CAR WITH ME.

Reporter: THE TUMOR WAS

FOUR INCHES IN DIAMETER.

HE STARTED HIS TREATMENTS

IMMEDIATELY.

HIS DOCTOR SAID HE WOULD

LIVE ONLY FIVE MORE YEARS.

HE SAID THE FIVE YEARS I

WOULD BE BATTLING THE

CANCER, EVEN IF IT WENT INTO

REMISSION, THE LEVEL THAT

IT'S AT, THE AGGRESSIVENESS

IT IS IN, IT IS GOING TO

COME BACK.

AND ONE OF THE WARNING SIGNS

HE GAVE ME, IF I WAKE UP

DURING THE DAY AND HAVE

CEREBRAL FLUID COMING OUT OF

MY NOSE, HE SAID JUST RUSH

TO THE HOSPITAL, BUT YOU'RE

DONE AT THAT POINT.

Reporter: AND THEN IT

HAPPENED, JUST AS HIS

ONCOLOGIST HAD WARNED HIM.

ONE NIGHT, IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE NIGHT, I WOKE UP

BECAUSE THERE WAS FLUID ON

MY LIPS.

AND I KIND OF TASTED IT, AND

IT WAS THAT SALTY SOLUTION,

AND I IMMEDIATELY REMEMBERED

THAT THE DOCTOR SAID, IF YOU

EVER HAVE THAT HAPPEN,

YOU'RE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL

IMMEDIATELY.

RUSH TO THE HOSPITAL.

Reporter: THE DISCHARGE

STOPPED.

JACOB WENT TO THE HOSPITAL

AND CONTINUED HIS

TREATMENTS.

SO I DID THREE MONTHS OF

CHEMOTHERAPY, AND THEN I

WENT INTO A RADIATION

TREATMENT.

AND AFTER ABOUT TWO WEEKS OF

THAT, I'M DETERIORATING.

MY BODY IS DETERIORATING.

OVER A COURSE OF TWO MONTHS,

I LOST 60 POUNDSMENT AND

POUNDS.

AND MY FAITH IS BEING TRIED

AT THAT POINT.

Reporter: JACOB WAS A

CHRISTIAN AND BELIEVED GOD

WOULD HEAL HIM.

I WAS CONSTANTLY

LISTENING TO TEACHINGS ON

HEALING, AND I WAS

CONSTANTLY IN MY BIBLE.

AND I WAS IN PRAYER.

I WOULD TELL GOD, GOD, YOUR

WORD SAYS BY HIS STRIPES I

AM HEALED.

I BELIEVE YOUR WORD.

YOU TELL ME TO STOP TAKING

THESE TREATMENTS, I'LL STOP

TAKING THE TREATMENTS

BECAUSE MY FAITH IS IN YOUR

WORD.

Reporter: JACOB SAYS

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT

HAPPENED.

I WOKE UP IN THE MIDDLE

OF THE NIGHT ONE NIGHT, AND

AS CLEARLY AS I'M SPEAKING

TO YOU RIGHT NOW, I HEARD

GOD TELL ME, IT'S OVER.

IT'S FINISHED.

IT'S DONE.

STOP TAKING THE TREATMENTS.

AND THE PEACE OF GOD WAS ON

ME.

AND I SAID, GOD, YOU TOLD ME

TO DO IT, SO THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

FOR A MOMENT, I THOUGHT,

OH, WOW, THAT'S A BIG DEAL.

BUT THEN I WAS, LIKE, I

ALWAYS WENT BACK TO, I KNOW

HIM.

I KNOW HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD IS THE REAL DEAL.

I KNOW THAT HE KNOWS HOW TO

HEAR FROM GOD.

AND I TRUSTED IN HIM THAT HE

COULD HEAR FROM GOD.

I TRUSTED IN HIS FAITH IN

GOD.

BUT THAT DAY I WALKED IN,

AND I TOLD HIM, DOCTOR, I'M

DONE.

AND HE TREATED ME WITH

RESPECT, AND I APPRECIATED

THAT.

AND I SAID, YES, SIR.

AND HE SAID, GO GET ME ONE

MORE M.R.I., AND I SAID I

WILL.

AND HE SCHEDULED IT THAT

DAY.

HE WASN'T KIDDING AROUND.

THREE DAYS LATER I GO BACK

INTO HIS OFFICE, AND HE PUTS

THE FILMS UP ON THE BOARD,

AND HE SAYS, THIS IS WHERE

THE TUMOR WAS.

THIS IS THE AGGRESSION.

THIS IS HOW BIG IT IS.

AND THIS IS THE NEW FILM,

AND THERE IS NO TUMOR.

HE SAID, YOUR TUMOR

VANISHED.

MEDICALLY SPEAKING, THESE

CANNOT BE THE SAME PERSON.

NOT UNLIKELY.

NOT IT'S NOT VERY PROBABLE.

BUT THEY ABSOLUTELY CANNOT

BE THE SAME PERSON.

THERE WAS NO SCAR TISSUE.

THE BONE HAD BEEN REPLACED.

ALL FRESH BONE.

NO SCAR TISSUE THERE.

THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO

EVIDENCE THAT CANCER HAD

EVER BEEN IN MY BODY.

HE SAID, NOTHING WE DID

COULD HAVE CAUSED THIS.

WE DON'T MAKE TUMORS

VANISH.

THE BONE THAT HAD ERODED

AWAY HAS BEEN RELEASED.

REPLACED.

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT YOUR

MIRACLE.

YES, SIR, I GOT MY MIRACLE.

SOMETHING WONDERFUL HAS

HAPPENED, WILL IS NO

QUESTION.

YOU HAD A SPECTACULAR

RESPONSE.

Reporter: THE TUMOR AND

THE CANCER WERE COMPLETELY

GONE.

AND JACOB WAS ON THE MEND.

IT TOOK ABOUT SIX

MONTHS.

MY WEIGHT GAINED BACK.

MY HAIR GREW BACK.

MY SALIVA STARTED FLOWING

AGAIN.

AND ALSO DURING THAT TIME,

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH NOW MY

WIFE JESSICA WAS FLOURISHING

AS WELL.

AND I ASKED HER TO BE MY

WIFE SIX MONTHS AFTER I

STOPPED TAKING THE

TREATMENTS.

AND REMEMBER THEY TOLD ME I

WASN'T GOING TO BE ABLE TO

HAVE ANY BABIES.

AND MY WIFE KNEW THAT GOING

INTO IT.

AND WE GOT MARRIED.

BUT NOW I'VE GOT THREE

PERFECT LITTLE BOYS.

A 6-YEAR-OLD, ROMAN, A

3-YEAR-OLD, JUDA, AND A

1-YEAR-OLD, JUSTICE, AND

THEY'RE DOING JUST FINE.

NOT BAD FOR NOT BEING ABLE

TO HAVE BABIES.

I KNEW THAT GOD WAS A

MIRACLE-WORKING GOD.

IF HE SAVED JACOB FROM STAGE

FOUR CANCER TO LIVE AND TO

BE STRONG, HE WOULD MOST

DEFINITELY GIVE US THE

DESIRES OF OUR HEART, WHICH

WAS TO HAVE A FAMILY.

WHEN I LOOK AT ROMAN, JUDAH,

AND JUSTICE, I THINK OF

GOD'S MIRACLE.

GOD LOVES HUMANITY SO

MUCH, HE WANTS TO HEAL THEM,

RESTORE THEM, AND HE WANTS

THEM FREE FROM SICKNESS AND

DISEASE.

PRAYER IS VERY POWERFUL.

I MEAN, WHEN YOU HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE C.E.O.

OF THE UNIVERSE, YOU KNOW,

YOU CAN GET SOME THINGS

DONE.

Wendy: I AM SO CRAZY

ABOUT THAT STORY.

THAT IS SO AMAZING.

THE DOCTOR SAID, YOU'LL

NEVER HAVE KIDS.

AND NOW HE HAS THREE

BEAUTIFUL SONS.

IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD

FOR GOD?

WHATEVER YOUR FACING TODAY,

KNOW THAT IT IS NOT TOO HARD

FOR GOD.

GOD IS THE GOD OF MIRACLES.

HE WANTS TO DO ONE FOR YOU

TODAY.

GORDON, WE HAVE GOT AN

ANSWER TO PRAY HERE FROM

JEFF, OF HOMBOLT, IOWA.

HE HAD A JOB THAT REQUIRED

HIM TO WALK ON CONCRETE

FLOORS FOUR HOURS EACH DAY.

IN 2012 HE BEGAN HAVING

TERRIBLE PAIN IN BOTH FEET.

HIS DOCTOR PRESCRIBED

MEDICINE THAT DIDN'T HELP.

ONE DAY JEFF AND HIS WIFE

WERE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," WHEN YOU, GORDON,

WERE GIVING A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, "SOMEONE HAS

CHRONIC PAIN IN BOTH FEET.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU

TO WALK.

GOD IS HEALING AND RESTORING

YOUR BONE AND PADDING."

THE COUPLE CLAIMED THAT WORD

FOR JEFF.

THAT SAME DAY HE REALIZED

ALL OF THE PAIN WAS GONE IN

BOTH FEET.

JEFF IS NOW ABLE TO WALK

WITHOUT DISCOMFORT.

Gordon: I LOVE WHAT

JACOB SAID, WHEN YOU HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE C.I.A.

OF THE UNIVERSE, YOU CAN GET

SOME THINGS DONE.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED WITH

HIM.

HE GOT SOME THINGS DONE.

HE GOT A COMPLETE TOTAL

MAKEOVER.

NO TUMOR, NO BONE LOSS.

WHAT WAS LOST WAS COMPLETELY

RESTORED.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

GOD DOES.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS DID WHEN

HE WALKED THE EARTH.

IT WASN'T PARTIAL HEALINGS.

IT WAS COMPLETE AND TOTAL

RESTORATION.

COMPLETE AND TOTAL.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT HE

IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

AND WHAT HE DID 2,000 YEARS

AGO, HE IS STILL DOING

TODAY.

SO LOOK AT YOUR SITUATION.

ARE YOU TOO DEAD TO BE

RESURRECTED?

THE ANSWER IS, NO, YOU'RE

NOT.

YOU CAN NEVER BEEN TOO DEAD

FOR JESUS TO RESURRECT YOU,

TO CHANGE YOU, TO HEAL YOU,

TO RESTORE YOU.

IF YOU NEED A MIRACLE, GOD'S

IN THE MIRACLE BUSINESS.

HE IS THE C.E.O. OF THE

UNIVERSE.

AND YOU CAN GET SOME

BUSINESS DONE.

HERE IS SOMETHING THAT

HAPPENED THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE

MIRACLE.

AND THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

THE DAY AFTER EASTER,

NATHANIEL OF OHIO WATCHED AS

HIS 5-YEAR-OLD SON REACHED

UP TO GRAB SOMETHING FROM

THE TOP OF THE FIREPLACE.

AS HE DID, THE WHOLE BRICK

FACADE COLLAPSED ON TOP OF

HIM.

THE BOY WAS RUSHED TO THE

HOSPITAL.

X-RAYS SHOWED MULTIPLE

FRACTURES, INTERNAL

BLEEDING, COLLAPSED LUNG.

WELL, NATHANIAL CALLED "THE

700 CLUB" FOR PRAYER FOR HIS

5-YEAR-OLD BOY.

THE FOLLOWING DAY, THE VERY

NEXT DAY, THEY HAD A C.A.T.

SCAN, AND EVERY FRACTURE WAS

HEALED.

HIS LUNGS WERE FUNCTIONING

NORMALLY, AND THAT IS AN

INCREDIBLE MIRACLE.

THAT'S ON PAR WITH WHAT

HAPPENED TO JACOB, WHERE THE

M.R.I. SHOWED INTO TUMOR.

HERE IS A C.A.T. SCAN, AND

ALL OF THE FRACTURES ARE

HEALED.

THE LUNGS ARE FUNCTIONING

NORMALLY.

START THINKING THAT WAY.

HOW DO YOU GET FAITH?

WELL, FAITH FIRST BEGINS

WITH HOPE.

YOU HOPE IN THE FUTURE.

DO YOU HOPE IN THE

RESURRECTION?

DO YOU HOPE IN JESUS?

AND NOW LET THAT BECOME

SUBSTANCE.

LET IT BECOME EVIDENCE.

LET IT BECOME TANGIBLE.

LET THE PRESENCE OF GOD BE

REVEALED TO YOU.

HE PROMISES THAT HE WILL

MANIFEST HIMSELF FOR YOU AND

ME.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE ON OUR

PART?

TO TELL HIM WE LOVE HIM.

AND WE THANK HIM FOR WHAT HE

HAS DONE.

FOR BY HIS STRIPES, WE WERE

HEALED.

HE HAS ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED

IT.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS RECEIVE

IT.

SO START THANKING HIM FOR

IT.

HE DWELLS IN THE PRAISES OF

HIS PEOPLE.

HE INHABITS HIM.

WHEN WE COME TO HIM, LET'S

COME TO HIM WITH

THANKSGIVING.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,

WITH THANKSGIVING FOR WHAT

HE IS ABOUT TO DO FOR YOU.

SO HERE IS A VERSE WE'RE

GOING TO CLAIM.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

AGREE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN TWO

OR MORE AGREE, TOUCHING

ANYTHING, ANYTHING, IT SHALL

BE DONE FOR THEM BY MY

FATHER IN HEAVEN.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS.

WE CAN TRUST IT.

SO WENDY AND I WILL BE THE

TWO.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY,

I'LL BE THE "OR MORE."

LET'S AGREE AND LET'S LET

GOD DO ALL OF THE REST.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE IN NEED OF

MIRACLES, YOU'RE THE

MIRACLE.

YOUR BIRTH, YOUR DEATH, YOUR

RESURRECTION, MIRACLES FOR

US, EXAMPLES FOR US.

AND SO WE RECEIVE YOU NOW.

AND WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

MANIFEST YOUR PRESENCE AND

YOUR POWER TO THOSE WHO ARE

WATCHING RIGHT NOW.

AND STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND

TO DO MIRACLES.

AS WE REACH UP TO TOUCH AND

TO AGREE TOGETHER, STRETCH

FORTH YOUR HAND TO DO

MIRACLES.

AND SO WE ANNOUNCE OVER

THESE PEOPLE NOW, OVER THEIR

BODIES, BE HEALED AND BE

MADE WHOLE.

AND BE RESTORED.

LET BONE BE RESTORED.

LET MUSCLE BE RESTORED.

LET SKIN, ORGANS BE RESTORED

NOW.

IN JESUS' MIGHTY NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

SUFFERING WITH AN INFECTION

ON THE BRAIN.

AND THE DOCTORS HAVE TOLD

YOU IT INVOLVES THE LINING

OF THE BRAIN.

AND SO THAT'S THE WORD FOR

YOU TO KNOW THAT THIS IS FOR

YOU.

THAT INFECTION IS BEING

HEALED NOW AND BEING

COMPLETELY GONE.

AND ALL THAT PAIN, ALL THAT

SWELLING, AND ALL THAT FEAR

OF DEATH LEAVE YOU NOW IN

JESUS' NAME BECAUSE YOU HAVE

BEEN RESTORED BY THE LIVING

GOD.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE GOT

RECURRING MIGRAINE HEADACHES

THAT HAVE PLAGUED YOU.

AND YOU'RE IN FEAR OF THEM.

AND GOD HAS BOUND THAT NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

IT WILL NEVER COME BACK.

IT'S LEAVING YOU NOW.

YOU JUST FELT IT LEAVE.

THE SENSATION FROM BEHIND

YOUR EYES AND IN YOUR

FOREHEAD, IT'S JUST GONE NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

AND HIS PROMISE FOR YOU, IT

WILL NEVER COME BACK.

IT WILL NEVER COME BACK.

WENDY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: THERE ARE MANY

PEOPLE WHO ARE KNEELING

BEFORE THE TV, AND YOU'RE

JUST BELIEVING FOR YOUR

MIRACLE.

SOME OF YOU NEED A FINANCIAL

MIRACLE.

SOME OF YOU ARE FACING

ADDICTIONS, AND YOU'RE

CRYING OUT TO BE DELIVERED.

IT IS LIKE JESUS IS JUST

REACHING THROUGH THE TV AND

PUTTING HIS HAND ON YOUR

HEAD.

AND HE IS DELIVERING YOU.

HE SAYS, I DELIVER YOU

BECAUSE I DELIGHT IN YOU.

SO JUST WALK IN THAT

FREEDOM.

YOU ARE BEING DELIVERED

TODAY.

Gordon: WELL, THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH CHRONIC KNEE

PAIN IN BOTH KNEES.

YOU CAN'T AFFORD DOCTORS.

AND YOU'RE ASKING, DOES

JESUS SEE ME?

AND THE ANSWER IS, HE DOES,

AND HE FEELS EVERY PAIN IN

YOUR BODY.

AND HE IS TAKING THE PAIN

AWAY FROM YOUR KNEES.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE

CARTILAGE.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE EVEN

THE LIGAMENTS.

AND IN JESUS' NAME, BE

HEALED AND BE RESTORED.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH A TORN BICEP.

I THINK YOU INJURED IT

WORKING OUT AT THE GYM, AND

IT'S REALLY PAINFUL.

AND THE LORD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

BE HEALED.

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU, FOR WHEN WE RECEIVE

YOU, WE RECEIVE THE HEALER.

WE RECEIVE THE ANSWER TO

EVERY HUMAN NEED.

BE WITH US NOW.

BE IN US.

BE ALL AROUND US.

BE ABOVE US, BEHIND US,

BELOW US, FRONT OF US, TO

OUR RIGHT, AND TO OUR LEFT.

LET US BE IMMERSED IN YOUR

LOVE, FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Gordon: IF YOU HAVE

BEEN TOUCHED BY GOD, WE WANT

TO SHARE IN THE REPORT OF

YOUR MIRACLE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GIVE

US A CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

AND WE BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER.

IMPORTUNE PRAYER.

WEEK.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

1-800-759-0700.

WENDY?

Wendy: COMING UP, WE'LL

BE ANSWERING YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, SO YOU DON'T WANT

TO MISS THAT.

Gordon: CBN PARTNERS

ARE BRINGING HOPE TO PLACES

LIKE THIS MUSLIM VILLAGE IN

NIGERIA, WHERE PEOPLE ARE

DRINKING CLEAN WATER FOR THE

VERY FIRST TIME.

Reporter: TODAY MAKING

MEALS AND TAKING CARE OF HER

FAMILY IS EASY FOR ALMINA.

BUT IT WASN'T ALWAYS THIS

WAY.

BEFORE NOW, MEAL TIMES WERE

DIFFICULT BECAUSE THEY

DIDN'T HAVE ANY CLEAN

WATER.

THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN HERE

FETCHED WATER FROM A DIRTY

STREAM FROM THIS OPEN WELL.

TICKS, INSECTS, AND OTHER

DEBRIS WOULD FALL INTO THE

WELL.

WE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO

DRINK IT LIKE THAT.

THE WATER FROM THE STREAM

WAS WORSE, BROWN AND MUDDY,

LIKE SAND.

Reporter: MANY OF THE

VILLAGERS HERE SUFFERED

GUINEA WORM INFECTIONS AS A

RESULT OF THE BAD WATER,

INCLUDING AMINA AND ONE OF

HER SONS.

SHE SAYS HER LEGS HURT, LIKE

SHE WAS WALKING ON HOT

COALS.

SHE SURVIVED THE INFECTION,

BUT HER SON DIDN'T.

I WAS VERY SAD AND WEPT

OFTEN.

I WAS REALLY AFRAID FOR MY

OTHER CHILDREN BECAUSE WE

STILL DRANK THAT SAME

WATER.

WHAT IF THEY DIED, TOO?

WHAT WOULD MY LIFE BE LIKE

WITHOUT THEM?

Reporter: IN THIS

PREDOMINANTLY MUSLIM

VILLAGE, A CHRISTIAN PASTOR

HEARD ABOUT CBN.

HE CALLED US, AND SOON WE

DUG A WELL RIGHT IN THE

CENTER OF THE VILLAGE.

NOW EVERYONE HERE HAS CLEAN

WATER TO DRINK, COOK WITH,

AND GIVE TO THEIR

LIVESTOCK.

WHEN I FIRST PUMPED THE

WATER, ITHOUGHT TO MYSELF,

FINALLY WE HAVE CLEAN

WATER.

NO ONE ELSE GETS SICK FROM

BAD WATER.

WE WILL ALL BE WELL.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR BRINGING

FRESH WATER TO ALL OF US.

1-800-759-0700.

WE'VE GOT TIME FOR A COUPLE

OF QUESTIONS.

Wendy: SYLVIA

WRITES, "MY MOTHER KNOWS OF

JESUS, BUT SHE WILL NOT

ACCEPT JESUS INTO HER LIFE

BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T BELIEVE

HE HEALS THE SICK AND RAISED

THE DEAD.

SHE MAKES FUN OF ME ALL OF

THE TIME.

AND SHE TELLS MY KIDS THAT

THE BIBLE ISN'T TRUE.

A CONVERSATION ABOUT JESUS

ALWAYS TURNS INTO AN

ARGUMENT.

WE PRAY FOR HER, BUT WHAT

ELSE CAN WE DO?"

Gordon: SYLVIA, REALIZE

PRAYER IS VERY POWERFUL, AS

WE PRAY FOR HER BUT WHAT

ELSE CAN WE DO?

PRAYER IS SIGNIFICANT.

WHEN YOU LAY HOLD IN PRAYER,

WHATEVER YOU AGREE,

TOUCHING, GOD MOVES.

HE MOVES MOUNTAINS ON YOUR

BEHALF.

IT MAY SEEM IMPOSSIBLE.

IT MAY SEEM REALLY HARD, BUT

WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

SO SPEND THAT TIME IN

PRAYER.

DON'T SPEND TIME IN

ARGUMENT.

YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO ARGUE

ANYBODY INTO HEAVEN.

THE OTHER THING YOU CAN DO

IS BY YOUR QUIET AND

PEACEFUL LIVING, THE JOY

THAT YOU HAVE IN KNOWING THE

LORD, YOU SET AN EXAMPLE.

SHE CAN BE AN APISTLE.

SHE READS YOU EVERY SINGLE

DAY, AS TO WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

SOMEBODY KNOWS THE LORD.

WELL, I THINK WE'VE GOT TIME

FOR ONE MORE.

Wendy: OKAY.

THE PRODUCERS LOOK NERVOUS.

LET'S LIVE ON THE EDGE.

MARILYN SAYS, "I KNOW THE

BIBLE SAYS BY HIS STRIPES WE

ARE HEALED.

I ASKED GOD TO HEAL ME EVERY

SINGLE DAY.

DOES IT SHOW A LACK OF FAITH

IF I ASK EVERY DAY?"

Gordon: NO, KEEP

KNOCKING AND ASKING.

YOU'RE FOLLOWING JESUS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM MATTHEW 21: "IN

ALL THINGS, WHATEVER YOU ASK

IN PRAYER, BELIEVING YOU

WILL RECEIVE IT."

THAT'S ONE OF THE KEYS,

BELIEVING YOU HAVE ALREADY

RECEIVED IT, AND YOU'LL HAVE

IT.
