A BODY

MIRACLE.

IT WAS GOING TO BE A TRIP I

COULD SENSE IT.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB." *

PAT: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "700 CLUB." WE

ARE THRILLED TO SEE TERRY

MEEUWSEN IS BACK FROM UKRAINE

SAFE AND SOUND.

TERRY: OUR OWN GEORGE THOMAS

WAS DOWN THERE.

ONE OF THE PRETTIEST AREAS OF

DOWNTOWN KIEV IN SHAMBLES.

THEY WERE PULLING UP THE STONES

OUT OF THE COBBLED STREETS.

THAT WAS PART OF THE WEAPONRY

THEY HAD AND WOODEN SHIELDS.

A MAKESHIFT HOSPITAL SET ON

FIRE.

PAT: WHAT DID THE PEOPLE SAY

TERRY: THE MEDIA IS A

POWERFUL THING.

SO MUCH UNTRUTH COMING FROM

RUSSIA, AS NATANATALIA WORKS WITH ME

FROM ORPHAN'S PROMISE.

THEY SAID ARE YOU ONE OF THE

BANDEROS?

THERE ARE NONE, THERE ARE JUST

FARMERS AND PEOPLE THAT ARE

LOSING.

WE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR PEACE

TERRY: THE ORPHANS YOU TAKE

CARE OF, THEY ARE DOING OKAY?

TERRY: WE GO INTO PLACES

WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF POVERTY.

YOUNG PEOPLE IN OUR TRAINING

CENTERS, SPEAKING IN ENGLISH

BEAUTIFULLY, STUDYING COMPUTERS

AND THEIR PARENTS COMING.

PAT: IN ARMENIA?

TERRY: YES, LOVE ARMENIAN

BREAD

PAT: EVERYTHING YOUR EARNINGS

HAVE GONE TO OBAMA TO PAY FOR

TAXES.

TERRY: MOST AMERICANS DON'T

LIKE THE IDEA WORKING FOUR AND A

HALF MONTHS JUST TO PAY FOR ALL

OF THEIR TAXES, PAUL STRAND HAS

THE STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

REPORTER: IF YOU PUT OFF

TAXES UNTIL APRIL 15TH

NIGHTMARE, FOR YOUR POCKETBOOK

IT HAS STILL BEEN GOING ON UNTIL

THIS WEEK.

TAXFOUNDATION.ORG.

THIS YEAR IT WILL TAKE

AMERICA 111 DAYS.

REPORTER: ALL YOUR LABOR

THROUGHOUT 2014 HAS GONE TO PAY

TRACKSES.

CONTRAST THAT TO AMERICAN

TODYRS 1900 WHO

22ND, THREE NUARY

MONTHSLESS.

PAYROLL AND CORPORATE TAXES,

1 PPT 5 TRILLION TO STATE AND

LOCAL GOVERNMENT TO THEIR STATE.

REPORTER: THIS YEAR, JUST

OVER 30% GOES TO PAYING THE

GOVERNMENT COSTS OF SOCIAL

PROGRAMS.

AMERICANS SAW UNDER 6% EATEN UP

BY TAXES.

MOST CITIZENS PAY MORE FOR

GOVERNMENT THAN THEY DO THEIR

FOOD, HOMES AND CLOTHES.

THIS YEAR TOTAL TAX BILL OF

4.5 TRILLION DOLLARS.

MORE THAN WE PAY ON FOOD,

CLOTHING AND HOUSING COMBINED.

52% FEEL TAXES ARE TOO HIGH,

42% FEEL THEY ARE WILL THE.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT 3% FEEL THEIR

TAXES ARE TOO LOW.

YOU ARE NOT IMAGINING IF YOU

THINK THEY HAVE GONE UP, THE

TAXES HAVE BEEN RAISED FOR

THREE-FOURTHS OF TAXES.

DON'T BE LOOKING FOR ANY TAX

RELIEF IN THE NEAR FUTURE AT

LEAST WITH THE POLITICIANS NOW

IN CHARGE, PAUL STRAND, CBN

NEWS, TREASURY DEPARTMENT.

PAT: THAT 42% QUESTIONABLE.

A LARGE NUMBER OF THOSE PEOPLE

DON'T PAY ANY.

THAT IS JUST ABOUT RIGHT.

YOU DON'T MIND PAYING FOR

DEFENSE OF THE NATION, YOU DON'T

MIND PAYING FOR EFFICIENT COURT

SYSTEMS AND ROADS AND HIGHWAYS,

YOU DON'T MIND IT.

WHAT YOU DO MIND IS THE MINDLESS

WASTE THAT GOES ON IN

WASHINGTON.

THE SHOCKING WASTE OF MONEY ON

DUPLICATE PROGRAMS, TWO AND

THREE HUNDRED DUPLICATING

PROGRAMS, 40-50 JOB TRAINING,

60-70 JOB TRAINING, ON AND ON.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY A SCANDAL OF

MASSIVE PROPORTIONS.

EVERYBODY IS ON THE TAKE BECAUSE

EVERYBODY HAS A LITTLE PIECE OF

THE ACTION.

THEY DON'T WANT TO VOTE AGAINST

THESE THINGS.

STATESMAN HAVE GOT TO ARISE

SAYING WE CARE ABOUT THE NEXT

GENERATION AND WE ARE NOT GOING

TO CATER TO SPECIAL INTERESTS.

WE ARE GOING TO SAY LET'S VOTE

FOR WHAT IS GOOD FOR AMERICA.

RIGHT NOW WE DON'T HAVE A

MAJORITY WHO WANTS TO DO THAT.

IN OTHER NEWS, DOES VLADIMIR

PUTIN WANT TO BRING BACK THE

SOVIET UNION?

THAT IS THE WARNING FROM THE

UKRAINE.NISTER OF THE

STORY RIFFITH HAS THAT

FROM THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

WENDY: PAT, VICE PRESIDENT

BIDEN WENT TO UKRAINE AS

AMERICAN SENATORS ARE CALLING

FOR THE UNITED STATES TO CLAMP

DOWN HARDER ON RUSSIA BECAUSE OF

PUTIN'S MILITARY ACTIONS IN

UKRAINE.

DALE HURD HAS OUR STORY.

REPORTER: VLADIMIR PUTIN IS

ON THE MARCH HAVING TAKEN SOUTH

OSEDIA AND NOW CRIMEA.

A LEADING RUSSIAN THINK TANK

SAYS RUSSIA IS NOT ON THE

DEFENSIVE.

IT IS ADVANCING.

UKRAINE'S PRIME MINISTER IS

CLEARLY WORRIED.

PRESIDENT PUTIN HAS A DREAM

TO RESTORE THE SOVIET UNION.

AND EVERYDAY HE GOES FURTHER AND

FURTHER.

REPORTER: IT CARRIES A STEEP

COST FOR RUSSIA.

NATION'S ECONOMY HAS BEEN

HAMMERED BAY CREDIT CRUNCH.

50 PERCENT DOLLARS HAS SAID TO

LEFT SO FAR.

RUSSIAN COMPANIES WILL NEED

STATE MONEY TO STAY IN BUSINESS.

AMERICAN STATE LAWMAKERS SAY

RUSSIA NEEDS TO FEEL MORE PAIN

WHETHER IT IS ON CHEMICAL

COMPANIES OR RUSSIAN BANKS.

IF RUSSIA GETS AWAY WITH

THIS, I THINK A POTENTIAL OF A

NATO ALLY.

IT IS TIME FOR THEM TO LEAD.

REPORTER: MANY AT RISK

INCLUDING IT WOULD SEEM JEWS,

ANTI-SEMITIC LEAFLETS IN THE

CITY FOR THE REGISTRATION OF

JEWS FOR AUTHORITIES.

REMINISCENT OF NAZI ARAB

PROSECUTION.

JEWS ARE UNDERSTANDABLY UPSET.

THIS RABBI SAID WE ARE SHOCKED

BY THE FACT THAT SOMEONE ALLOWED

THEMSELVES TO PRINT AND

DISTRIBUTE SUCH LEAFLETS.

VLADIMIR PUTIN HAS SAID THE

GREATEST TRAGEDY OF THE 20TH

CENTURY WAS THE DEATH OF THE

SOVIET UNION.

MANY OF THE NEIGHBORS FEEL THE

PUTINTRAGEDY WOULD BE IF

IT.VIVING N

CBN NEWS.

WENDY: PAT, CAN THE U.S. MAKE

A DIFFERENCE IN UKRAINE?

PAT: IF WE TAKE FORCEABLE

ACTION BUT OUR PRESIDENT DOESN'T

WANT TO.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS

THAT COULD BE DONE, CO-VERT

THINGS WE COULD DO TO

DESTABILIZE THEIR ECONOMY.

I DON'T WANT ANYBODY PLAYING

COMPUTER GAMES.

THEY DO IT.

IF ANYBODY CAN HACK INTO THE

UNITED STATES PENTAGON, WE CAN

HACK INTO THE BANK ACCOUNTS OF

SOVIET LEADERS.

WE CAN DO GREAT DAMAGE AND ALSO

AN AGGRESSIVE PROGRAM TO EXPORT

UNITED STATES HYDROCARBONS, OIL

AND GAS.

WE COULD ALSO ALLOW MORE OF THE

FREEZING OF THE NATURAL GAS THAT

IS BEING DONE BUT ONE COMPANY

SHANIR IN THE GULF.

SOME OF THIS GAS, OUR GAS IS

SELLING $4.50 AND IN EUROPE AS

MUCH AS $70 SOMETIMES.

CERTAINLY A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN

WHAT WE ARE SPENDING ON A

REGULAR BASIS.

THERE IS A HUGE MARKET FOR OUR

SUPPLIERS, WE UNDERCUT GAS

PROBLEMS, MONOPOLY IN THE GAS

DISTRIBUTION TO EUROPE.

THE EUROPEANS ARE TERRIFIED

THEY'LL CUT THE TAPS OFF AND LET

THEM HAVE A NICE COLD WINTER.

IF THE UNITED STATES IS A

RELIABLE SUPPLIER, WE TAKE THE

WEAPON AWAY FROM THEM.

WORST THING TO DO IS SPEAK

LOUDLY AND CARRY A SMALL STICK.

CARRY A BIG STICK AND SPEAK

SOFTLY.

I HAVE TALKED ABOUT TO THE

PEOPLE AND HAD THE FIGURES FOR

SOME YEARS, TREMENDOUS GOOD NEWS

HASNA, WENDY

STORY.

THE WAY TO

BEING THE BIGGEST CHRISTIAN

NATION IN 15 YEARS, CHINA COULD

HAVE NEAR WHETHER I 250 MILLION

CHRISTIANS BY THE YEAR 2030.

THAT WOULD BE MORE THAN UNITED

STATES OR ANY OTHER COUNTRY.

OFFICIALLY CHINA IS AN ATHEIST

COUNTRY, THEY ACTUALLY FAILED

COMPLETELY, PAT.

PAT: WENDY, I HAVE BEEN THERE

SO MANY TIMES AND MET WITH THE

VERY LEADERS OF THE COMMUNIST

PARTY.

THEY RECOGNIZE THEY HAVE A

PROBLEM.

THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

MATERIALISM.

THEY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

HOLLYWOOD AND THEIR YOUNG

PEOPLE.

I HAVE EXPLAINED, CHRISTIANITY

IS YOUR ANSWER.

THEY THINK OF GOING BACK TO

BUDDHISM, BUDDHISM HAS

PRINCIPLES WE FIND CONFUCIOS WAS

THE GREAT LOVE.

I AM PLEASED TO REPORT CBN HAS

BEEN ASKED BY THE CHINESE TO

TEACH HOUSE CHURCH PASTORS.

WE ARE HAVING AN INFLUENCE.

I HAVE PREACHED AT THOSE

CHURCHES ON SUNDAY MORNING.

THEY ARE HUNGRY FOR THE WORLD

AND LOVES JESUS.

THE CHURCH WAS JAM PACKED.

HAPPENING ALL OVER CHINA.

I DON'T THINK IT WILL BE 60-70

MILLION, FROM THE FIGURES I WELL

MILLION CHINESE THAT

ARE CHRISTIANS.

WENDY?

WENDY: MIKE HUCKABEE SAYS IF

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IGNORES

ISSUES, EVANGELICAL VOTERS WILL

HOME.AT

DAVID BRODY HAS MORE.

DAVID: NO SECRET THAT THE

KEY ELICAL VOTE IS A

INGREDIENT.

POLLING BEARS THAT OUT.

YET THE SOCIAL ISSUES ARE UNDER

ATTACK WITHIN REPUBLICAN

CIRCLES.

MITCH DANIELLES WANTED TO

DECLARE A TRUCE.

ALL I WAS SAYING WAS WE ARE

GOING TO NEED TO UNIFY ALL KINDS

OF PEOPLE.

REEDOM IS GOING TO NEED EVERY

FRIEND IT CAN GET.

DAVID: THE ONLY WAY THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY CAN GET MORE

VOTES IS BY STAYING AWAY FROM

CONTROVERSIAL SOCIAL ISSUES.

MIGHT BEI

CBN NEWS ABEE TELLS

WITH EVANGELICALS IF THE PARTY

DITCHES THOSE ISSUES.

IT LEAVES THEM AT HOME AND

DON'T VOTE.

THERE WERE FEWER EVANGELICAL

VOTERS, IF 10% MORE HAD VOTED

FOR ROMNEY, ROMNEY WOULD BE

PRESIDENT RIGHT NOW.

DAVID: MANY SEEM TENSE ON

PHASING OUT SOCIAL ISSUES,

NEVADA REPUBLICAN PARTY STRIPPED

OUT ALL LANGUAGE PERTAINING TO

ABORTION AND MARRIAGE.

A REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE

DOCUMENT CONCLUDED THE

FOLLOWING: WHEN IT COMES TO

SOCIAL ISSUES, THE PARTY MUST BE

INCLUSIVE AND WELCOMING.

THIS NOTION, DON'T MENTION

THOSE ISSUES, YOU MIGHT OFFEND

THE VOTERS LEANING LEFT.

YOU BETTER WORRY ABOUT

COMPLETELY CHILLING OUT THE

VOTERS.

DAVID: HUCKABEE INSISTS

SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE VALUES WILL

HAVE TO CONVINCE THEM THAT

MARRIAGE AND ABORTION ARE THE

TOTAL PART OF THE ISSUE.

IF A CANDIDATE CAN ARTICULATE

THE REASON HE IS FOR TRADITIONAL

BIBLICAL MARRIAGE, THEN WILL

THEY HOLD IT AGAINST THEM LIKE

THAT WON'T EATM

PORK OR DRINK LIQUOR?

DAVID: ALL OF IT IS GOING TO

WORK ITSELF OUT IN FRONT OF THE

WHOLE COUNTRY, DAVID BRODY, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

WENDY: PAT, WHAT IS YOUR TAKE

ON THE POLITICAL SITUATION?

PAT: I HAVE BEEN THERE, DONE

THAT.

MY PEOPLE HAD CONTROL OF THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY OF NEVADA.

YOU GET OUT, THINGS FLIP BACK SO

QUICK.

YOU GET OUT, THE NEXT ELECTION

IT IS ALL GONE.

WORKING FOR HEAVEN IS A WHOLE

LOT BETTER THAN CONTROL OF

WASHINGTON.

NEVERTHELESS, WASHINGTON

INFLUENCES THE DECISIONS OF SO

MANY OF US.

WE HAVE AN ELECTION COMING UP.

MIKE HUCKABEE HAS GOTTEN A GREAT

DEAL OF POLISH AND THE FRENCH

WOULD CALL IT SAVON AFFAIR.

HE HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT ON

FOX.

HE HAS HAD A SUCCESSFUL RUN.

I SUSPECT HE WOULD LEAD THE

POLLS IN IOWA, WHICH IS OF

COURSE A LOT OF EVANGELICALS.

NEVERTHELESS GIVE HIM A HEAD

START.

HE MIGHT SURPRISE PEOPLE EVEN UP

IN NEW ENGLAND WHICH IS A HARD

CASE.

HE HAS A GOOD SHOT IF HE WANTS

TO RUN.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE WANTS TO BE A

CANDIDATE OR NOT.

WENDY?

WENDY: PAT, THE MOVIE "HEAVEN

IS FOR REAL" HAD A STRONG

OPENING AT THE BOX OFFICE, THE

FILM ABOUT A FOUR-YEAR-OLD BOY

FINISHED AT NO. 3 BRINGING IN

ESTIMATED 21 AND A HALF MILLION

DOLLARS.

ITS MADE 28 AND A HALF MILLION

DOLLARS SINCE LAST WEDNESDAY AND

"GODS NOT DEAD" STILL IN THE TOP

MILLION INOTAL OF 48

FIVE WEEKS.

IT'S JUST BLIND LUCK THE

EARTH HASN'T EXPERIENCED A

IMPACT FROM

ASTEROIDS BIG ENOUGH TO WIPE OUT

A CITY.

UNIVERSE TODAY REPORTS NEW

EVIDENCE THAT EARTH HAS HAD FAR

MORE ASTEROID IMPACTS, THREE TO

TEN TIMES AS MANY.

EVIDENCE COMES FROM NUCLEAR

WARNINGS NETWORK, FOUND THAT 26

HUGE EXPLOSIONS SINCE 2001 ALL

WHICH CAME FROM ASTEROID

IMPACTS.

GROUP SUPPORTS THE MISSION TO

FROM HITTING THE

EARTH WHICH WE ALL HOPE THEY

WILL BE SUCCESSFUL, PAT?

PAT: I WROTE A BOOK!

IT IS CALLED "END OF THE AGE."

IT DEALS WITH AN ASTEROID

HITTING THE EARTH.

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING ELSE THAT

FULFILLS THE PROPHETIC WORDS

OTHER THAN ASTEROID.

CAUSING THE SEAS TO ROYAL, SKIES

TO DARKEN, MOON, AND SUN NOT TO

GIVE THEIR LIGHT, NATIONS

TERRIFIED ON EARTH.

THERE ISN'T ANYTHING THAT IS

GOING TO DO THAT EXCEPT MY

ASTEROID WAS ONE KILOMETER, IT

WAS ENOUGH TO BRING WORLDWIDE

COLLAPSE.

IF WE HAD ONE A MILE IN

DIAMETER.

IT IS JUST A GREAT BIG HUNK OF

ROCK AND MILLIONS OF THEM OUT IN

SPACE SURROUNDING OUR

SURROUNDING.

MERCIFULLY WE HAVE A PLANET

NAMED JUPITER THAT PULLS A LOT

OF THAT STUFF IN.

IT HAS A GRAVITATIONAL PULL.

WE ARE BIG ENOUGH TO DRAW THEM

IN.

SOMEBODY SAID IT IS BLIND LUCK.

IT IS THE MERCY OF THE LORD.

IF THAT MERCY EVER GOT LIFTED.

READ WHAT JESUS SAID.

GET YOUR BIBLE.

HE SAID EXCEPT THOSE DAYS WILL

BE SHORTENED, NOBODY LIVING ON

THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

THAT IS WHAT IT SAYS.

THAT IS WHAT JESUS, HIMSELF

SIDE.

SO, HEY, JUST GET READY, AND

STAY RIGHT WITH THE LORD.

[LAUGHTER].

COULD BE NEXT WEEK OR A THOUSAND

YEARS FROM NOW.

NEVERTHELESS, WE WANT TO BE

READY AT WHATEVER TIME THE LORD

SAYS I AM WRAPPING IT UP AND

TIME TO COME HOME, TERRY?

TERRY: UP NEXT, HELP FOR

PEOPLE EXTREMELY OVERWEIGHT, AND

DON'T WANT TO GO UNDER THE

KNIFE.

LOST 162 T A MAN THAT

POUNDS IN EIGHT MONTHS AFTER

THIS.

PAT: HEY, YOU ARE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB" THIS DAY AFTER

EASTER.

I HOPE EVERYBODY HAD A WONDERFUL

EASTER.

TERRY: I DID.

I COOKED FOR MY FAMILY.

PAT: HOW DO YOU STAY SO

FRESH?

DO YOU HAVE JET LAG?

TERRY: I DID FOR A COUPLE OF

DAYS.

PAT: YOU LOOK SO FRESH AND

ALIVE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO IT.

THAT IS WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT ME,

YOU NEVER NO.

[LAUGHTER].

GREAT EASTER, WONDERFUL THING,

PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILIES.

WE HAVE A FOUNDERS INN HERE,

REGENT UNIVERSITY, ALL KINDS OF

WONDERFUL CHILDREN.

TERRY: SUCH A PRETTY CAMPUS.

TERRY: THEY HAD CLOSE TO

1300 PEOPLE FOR LUNCH.

I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO JOHN

BLARE.

JOHN LOST 162 POUNDS!

GET THAT, IN JUST EIGHT MONTHS.

HOW DID JOHN DO IT?

HE DIDN'T GO ON A FAD DIET OR

UNDER THE KNIFE.

HEALTH REPORTER LORIE JOHNSON

EXPLAINS, HE DID IT ON A

MEDICALLY SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS

PLAN.

AMAZING.

> LORI: JOHN BLARE USED TO BE

TOO HEAVY TO COMFORTABLY WALK

AROUND THE BLOCK, NOW HE HAS

LOST 162 POUNDS IT IS EASY.

I FEEL GREAT.

IT DOES HAVE RESULTS.

THAT IS WHAT IS MAKING ME SO

GREAT.

LORI: HE IS TALKING ABOUT A

MEDICALLY SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS

PROGRAM.

HE WEIGHED 526 POUNDS, BARELY

ABLE TO SQUEEZE INTO THESE SIZE

66 SIZE JEANS.

OH, WOW, JUST TWO OF US.

LORI: JOHN IS THRILLED TO

STEPS, ONE FOOT PER STAIR

AND HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY TO RAKE

THE YARD.

HE WANTS TO LOSE ANOTHER 100

POUNDS IN ORDER TO LOSE 250.

YOU HAVE MEAL REPLACEMENTS.

THEY ARE POWDERS AND SHAKES

AND BARS, YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE ONE

A DAY.

IT IS SATISFYING.

LORI: THE SUIT HE WORE FOR

OUR INTERVIEW APPEARED TIGHT

EIGHT MONTHS AGO.

CHECK OUT HOW MUCH UNHEALTHY

BELLY FAT.

JOHN HASN'T CHEATED ONE BIT WITH

THIS ONE, NOT EVEN DURING THE

HOLIDAYS.

NEW

MY FOOD WAS COMING.

NEW

LORI: THE KEY IS IT IS UNDER

THE WATCHFUL EYE OF A DOCTOR.

WE CHECK A PATIENT'S LAB LIST

AND MEDICATIONS THAT ARE

PROMOTING WEIGHT GAIN.

WE LOOK AT HOW THEIR MEDICATION

NEEDS CHANGE DURING THEIR WEIGHT

LOSS, SOMEONE ON INSULIN IS

GOING TO NEED A LOWER DOSE,

BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICINES MAY

DECREASE.

LORI: REDUCING YOUR WEIGHT BY

5% IS CONSIDERED SIGNIFICANT

WEIGHT LOSS.

MEDICALLY SUPERVISED PROGRAM CAN

LEAD TO A 30% DROP.

COMPARE THAT DO BARIATRIC

SURGERY, WE ARE GETTING CHANGES,

SIMILAR TO BARIATRIC SURGERY AND

PEOPLE AREN'T HAVING TO GO

THROUGH THE SURGERY.

ANYONE THAT HAS EVER DIETED,

HALF THE BATTLE IS LOSING IT AND

OTHER HALF IS KEEPING IT OFF.

REGULAR MEETINGS WITH A

DIETITIAN SO FOLKS LEARN HOW TO

MAKE GOOD CHOICES ONCE THEY ARE

BACK ON REAL FOOD.

WHEN PEOPLE START REALIZING

THE ROLE OF PROTEIN, FATS AND

CARB IN THE DIET, THEY GET A

BETTER SENSE OF EMPOWERMENT.

LORI: BARBARA TELLS PEOPLE TO

AVOID SUGARS, ESPECIALLY HIGH

FRUCTOSE.

STAY AWAY FROM HYDROGENATED OILS

ALSO CALLED TRANS FATS AND

REFINED OILS LIKE VEGETABLES.

SOME COCONUT OILS ARE HEALTHY AS

ARE NATURAL OILS LIKE OLIVE.

I TELL PEOPLE TO GO TO THE

COLD PRESSED FATS.

MORE FATS THAT ARE STRAIGHT FROM

THE ORIGIN.

LORI: YOU CAN STILL GAIN

WEIGHT BY EATING TOO MUCH.

THAT IS WHERE THIS PORTION PLATE

COMES IN HANDY.

IT TRAINS YOU TO EAT THE RIGHT

AMOUNT.

IT IS NOT JUST FOOD.

WE TALK SEVERAL TIMES ABOUT

SLEEP.

YOU ARE PRODUCING GRILLEN IN

YOUR SLEEP.

IF YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH, IT

TAKES OVER AND YOU ARE HUNGRY.

THIS FITNESS TRACKER IS AWARE

TO STAY ACTIVE.

A LOT WILL TELL YOU TO TELL

YOU TO GET UP AND MOVE.

FINALLY THERE IS THE

EMOTIONAL COMPONENT, WHAT WAS

BEHIND THE WEIGHT GAIN?

A LOT OF THE OF PEOPLE HAVE

FOOD ADDICTION AND TURN TO FOOD

FOR STRESS AND ANGER AND BOREDOM

BOREDOM.

LORI: WHETHER YOU HAVE 20

POUNDS OR OVER 200 LIKE JOHN, A

MEDICALLY SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS

PROGRAM MAYBE WHAT YOU NEED FOR

A LONGER HEALTHIER LIFE, LORIE

JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

PAT: LORI, YOU ARE AMAZING.

TERRY: HATS OFF TO THAT

GENTLEMAN.

YOU ALMOST HAVE TO SET YOUR MIND

YOU ARE GOING TO DO THIS.

PAT: ALL THE SUDDEN THE

SWITCH TURNS AND YOU ARE NOT

HUNGRY ANYMORE.

I GAINED BECAUSE I HAD A HEART

PROCEDURE.

JUST ALL THE SUDDEN, I DIDN'T

HAVE AN APPETITE.

TERRY: I THINK ALSO THAT

PEOPLE NEED TO BE MORE ACTIVE.

WE ARE ALL SITTING AT DESKS AND

COMPUTERS.

PAT: IF THEY JUST HAD A HORSE

TO RIDE.

[LAUGHTER].

GET A PENCIL AND WRITE THIS

DOWN, ACETYL CARNITINE,

WONDERFUL FOR YOUR HEART.

I TAKE ABOUT 2,000 MILLIGRAMS.

TERRY: IS THAT WHAT THE

BOTTLE SAYS YOU SHOULD TAKE?

PAT: THAT IS WHAT I SAY I

SHOULD TAKE.

[LAUGHTER].

ALPHA LAPOIC ACID, 500 MILLION

GRAM, ONE LITTLE PILL.

IF YOU WANT TO BE CLEVER,

NON-CAFFEINE GREEN TEA.

IF YOU HAVE A LIVER PROBLEM,

GREEN TEA COULD UPSET YOU OTHER

THEN THAT, I TAKE ANOTHER FOUR

OF THEM, 2,000.

THEY ARE FAT BURNERS.

THEY JUST GRAB YOUR FAT.

THEY JUST BURN IT.

ACETYL CARNITINE IS GOOD FOR

YOUR BRAIN AND HEART.

TERRY: WE SHOULD ALL BE

TAKING THAT.

PAT: THOSE TWO THINGS CAN

HAVE AN AMAZING EFFECT.

JUST AMAZING.

PAT: HOPE YOU WROTE THEM

DOWN.

I AM NOT GOING TO ANSWER YOU,

TOO PAT.

TERRY: STILL AHEAD, A WOMAN

IN UNBEARABLE PAIN HAS A LITTLE

TALK WITH JESUS.

I SAID TAKE CARE OF MY

HUSBAND, GIVE HIM A GOOD WIFE

WHEN I AM GONE SO HE IS NOT

ALONE.

TAKE CARE OF MY CHILDREN.

TERRY: WATCH WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN JESUS ANSWERS AFTER THIS.

@úútúxúx

TERRY: BARBARA HERNANDEZ WAS

PARL PARLIZED AND ON LIFE

SUPPORT.

SHE WAS READY TO DIE.

THE PAIN WAS UNBEARABLE.

THE MORNING OF FEBRUARY 6TH,

2008, BARBARA COLLAPSED AFTER

TAKING A SHOWER.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

I LOOKED AT MY LEGS, I WAS

TRYING TO WAKE THEM UP.

I WAS HITTING THEM.

NOTHING.

I COULDN'T EVEN FEEL THAT.

AT THE HOSPITAL, TESTS SHOWED

SHE HAD GBS.

IT IS A RARE NEUROLOGICAL

DISORDER WHERE THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

ATTACKS THE NERVOUS SYSTEM.

KENNELLINGTON, NEUROLOGIST

EXPLAINS.

A NERVE IS A COPPER WIRE WITH

RUBBER INSULATION.

THE BODY ATTACKS THE INSULATION

AND STRIPS IT OFF SO THE SIGNAL

DOESN'T GET THROUGH TO THE

MUSCLES WELL AND IT MAKES YOU

APPEAR WEAK.

THEY TOLD BARBARA IT COULD

RESULT IN PARALYSIS.

YOU THINK PARALYZED YOU WON'T

WALK.

AS WITH MOST CASES OF GBSS

DOCTORS EXPECTED THE SYMPTOMS TO

PASS.

THE FAMILY BEGAN TO PRAY.

I HAD TO COMMUNICATE WITH

GOD, HELP ME HOW TO APPROACH

THIS, HOW TO TAKE THINGS IN

STRIDE.

IT WAS GOING TO BE A LONG STRIP.

I COULD SENSE IT.

HE WAS RIGHT.

BARBARA'S CONDITION DECLINED

RAPIDLY.

WITHIN TWO WEEKS, PARALYZED,

UNCONSCIOUS AND ON LIFE SUPPORT.

SHE WAS MUF MOVED TO SETON

MEDICAL CENTER IN AUSTIN, TEXAS.

CARLOS STAYED AT HER BEDSIDE.

THE LORD GAVE ME SO MUCH

STRENGTH I WAS SO FOCUSSED ON

WHAT I NEEDED TO BE DOING.

DOCTORS WERE CONCERNED.

THEY HAD SEEN CASES OF GBS

BEFORE, NOTHING LIKE THIS.

SHE HAD A VERY, VERY SEVERE

FORM OF IT.

ONLY BEEN DESCRIBED IN THE

MEDICAL LITERATURE SIX OR SEVEN

TIMES.

SHE HAD A FOUR LUNG COLLAPSE,

OTHER WAS PARTIALLY COLLAPSED.

SHE DEVELOPED BLOOD CLOTS.

HER BLOOD PRESSURE WAS SO

ERRATIC, THEY TRIED TO LEVEL IT

OFF.

IT WOULD BOTTOM OUT.

IT WOULD GO SKY HIGH.

MEANWHILE BARBARA WAS LIVING

HER OWN NIGHTMARE.

ACCORDING TO DR. ELLINGTON, SHE

WAS IN A DREAM LIKE STATE WHICH

MEANS SHE COULD FEEL PAIN.

SEVERITY, I FELT LIKE I HAD

STABS AND MY SKIN WAS ON FIRE.

STILL CARLOS BELIEVED GOD

WOULD ANSWER THEIR PRAYERS.

IT WAS SO MUCH AGAINST HER

THAT STARTED DEVELOPING.

WE AS A FAMILY STARTED PRAYING

TO GOD TO HELP US.

FOUR MONTHS PASSED, BARBARA

SAYS SHE COULDN'T BEAR THE PAIN

ANY LONGER.

I WAS TIRED NOW.

I SAID IF THIS IS THE WAY IT IS

BEFORE YOU DIE, THEN LORD, TAKE

ME.

I HAD MY CONVERSATION WITH THE

LORD AT THAT TIME.

I SAID TAKE CARE OF MY HUSBAND.

GIVE HIM A GOOD WIFE WHEN I AM

GONE SO HE IS NOT ALONE.

TAKE CARE OF MY CHILDREN.

AND AS I TOLD HIM THAT AND I

FELT SUCH A PEACE, SUCH A

BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL PEACE.

I HEARD A VOICE, VERY CLEAR.

IT WAS LIKE A SONG.

LIKE SOMEBODY SANG IT SO

BEAUTIFUL.

IT WAS A MAN'S VOICE.

I BELIEVE IT WAS THE LORD.

HE TOLD ME IT IS NOT YOUR TIME.

THERE WAS A CLICK IN MY EARS AND

MY HEARING WENT ON.

MY SIGHT, I BELIEVE DIDN'T

RETURN UNTIL A WEEK OR TWO

LATER.

AFTER SUCH A LONG TIME,

BARBARA COULDN'T WAIT TO TALK TO

HER FAMILY AND THE HOSPITAL

STAFF.

OH YES, A BEAUTIFUL,

BEAUTIFUL DAY.

ALL THE NURSES I HAD CAME IN THE

ROOM.

EVERYONE SURROUNDING ME.

SHE JUST GOT WARMED UP AND

TOOK OFF AND BARBARA ALL BACK

AGAIN.

IT WAS JUST A GREAT, GREAT GIFT

WE GOT BACK.

BARBARA STARTED THE LONG

PROCESS OF RECOVERY.

CONSIDERING THE SEVERITY OF HER

CASE.

DOCTORS WEREN'T SURE HOW WELL

SHE WOULD DO.

THAT LED TO ME TRUSTING THE

LORD, PUTTING ALL MY FAITH IN

HIM.

I LOOKED BACK AT THE WHOLE

MEMORY, IF YOU GOT ME THROUGH

ALL OF THAT, NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU, LORD,

NOTHING, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

YOU'LL GET ME OUT OF THIS, TOO.

BARBARA RETURNED HOME

DETERMINED TO WALK AFTER MONTHS

OF THERAPY AND PRAYER, SHE DID.

GOD IS THERE TO HAND YOU THE

MINUTE YOU ASK.

YOU RELY ON HIM, HE IS THERE.

EVERY MORNING WHEN I WAKE UP,

OF COURSE, I AM THANKFUL TO BE

ALIVE AND HERE.

THERE ISN'T A DAY I AM NOT

THANKFUL TO THE LORD.

I MEAN, I AM TRULY THANKFUL I

CAN GET A FORK IN MY HAND AND

BRING FOOD TO MY MOUTH.

THE LITTLE THINGS LIKE THAT I

COULDN'T DO THAT WE TAKE SO MUCH

FOR GRANTED.

I AM SO THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE.

TERRY: WE ARE BLESSED WITH

SO MANY THINGS, SOMETIMES YOU

DON'T TRULY APPRECIATE IT TO

THAT DEPTH UNTIL YOU HAVE LOST

IT FOR A WHILE.

PAT: AMAZING, WHAT A

WONDERFUL WOMAN, SELFLESS

THINKING ABOUT HER HUSBAND.

WONDERFUL.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT GBS

SYNDROME, IT IS KIND OF

MYSTERIOUS.

IT COMES ON PEOPLE, NEXT THING

YOU KNOW SHE IS ALMOST DEAD THEN

GOD GAVE HER HEALING.

HE SPOKE TO HER.

OKAY.

WE HAVE TESTIMONY.

TERRY: I DO.

JOYCE FROM TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA,

SHE HAD BEEN SEEING A DOCTOR

ABOUT HER LEFT EYE FOR TWO

YEARS.

SHE BEGAN TO WEAR SUNGLASSES SO

THE PEOPLE WOULDN'T SEE THE

DISCHARGE.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS PROGRAM

AND GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

PAT.

SHE SAID YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

YOUR EYES, PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR

EYES, GOD IS HEALING YOU.

JOYCE PUT HER HANDS OVER HER

EYES AND FELT IMMEDIATE RELIEF.

NO PROBLEM.

PAT: THIS WOMAN HAD

SCOLIOSIS, SHE LIVED IN WATUMKA,

ALABAMA.

SHE HAD AN INJURY TO HER SPINE.

THEY SAID IT WAS SCOLIOSIS.

OCTOBER 2013, SHE WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH A BULGING DISK.

OF COURSE THEY SAID GO TO AN

ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON.

TERRY, YOU HAD A WORD,

"SCOLIOSIS," GOD IS

STRENGTHENING YOUR SPINE.

GUESS WHAT?

THE SPINE STRAIGHTENED OUT.

TERRY: WOW.

THAT IS A CREATIVE MIRACLE.

I DON'T KNOW HER NOW, SCOLIOSIS

CAN BE INCREDIBLE.

PAT: FOLKS, THE GOD WE SERVE

IS THE ONE THAT CREATED

EVERYTHING.

THAT IS HIS NAME.

HIS NAME IS HE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING TO BE.

THAT IS WHAT HIS NAME IS.

HE WHO CAUSES EVERYTHING TO BE,

YAHWEH.

HE IS THE ONE WHO CREATED IT

ALL.

HE CAN FIX YOUR SPINE.

HE CAN FIX YOUR DIABETES, HE CAN

FIX YOUR ARTHRITIS, YOUR

MARRIAGE AND YOUR FINANCES AND

ANYTHING ELSE WRONG.

HE SAID IF YOU, TWO OF YOU WILL

AGREE ON EARTH AS TOUCHING

ANYTHING THEY ASK, IT WILL BE

DONE FOR THEM.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO JOIN

HANDS TOGETHER.

WE ARE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD FOR

YOU.

ALL WE ASK YOU TO DO IS RECEIVE

WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO FOR YOU.

RECEIVE IT.

LET THE LORD DO THE REST.

WE JOIN TOGETHER.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY DEAR

SISTER IN CHRIST.

WE BELIEVE GOD TOGETHER IN THE

NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH

BE MADE WHOLE.

YOU HAVE BURNED THE INSIDE OF

YOUR THROAT, ALMOST LIKE AN AS

SIT THAT BURNED IT.

THE SKIN IS SO RAW AND HURTFUL.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR THROAT, IN

THE NAME OF JESUS TOUCH!

THAT SKIN IS GOING TO BE WHOLE.

TERRY?

TERRY: SOMEONE ELSE, YOU

HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE LENSES

REPORTER: WELCOME BACK TO

THE WORLD'S MORE THAN ONE

BILLION CHRISTIANS CELEBRATED

RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

SUNDAY.

PILL -- PILGRIMS FROM ALL OVER

CELEBRATED.

RICO DELIVERED THE MESSAGE AND

CHALLENGED BELIEVERS WITH A

CENTRAL QUESTION FOLLOWING THE

FIRST EASTER.

MY QUESTION THEREFORE IS

THIS: IS YOUR LIFE ON THIS

FOUNDATION THE RESURRECTION OF

JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE THAT IS

WHAT MEANS I PUT MY ARMS AROUND

LOVED ONES AGAIN AND I SEE JESUS

CHRIST.

THAT IS WHAT MEANS I AM

FORGIVEN.

THAT IS WHAT MEANS I GET A NEW

RESURRECTION BODY, THAT IS WHAT

MEANS JESUS IS ALIVE.

IS YOUR FAITH HERE BECAUSE THIS

IS THE ONLY SURE FOUNDATION IN

THE WORLD?

?? ñPñxñr÷÷yw

TERRY: WE STILL LOVE HEARING

FROM YOU, MANY OF YOU HAVE

SUBMITTED E-MAIL QUESTIONS FOR

OUR BRING IT ON.

PAT: LET'S GO.

TERRY: MY CHRISTIAN FAMILY

SAYS YOU CAN ACCEPT JESUS AS

YOUR SAVIOR AND KEEP ON SINNING

SUCH AS COMMITTING ADULTERY AND

STILL GO TO HEAVEN SINCE JESUS

IS YOUR SAVIOR.

ISN'T CONTINUING TO KNOWINGLY

SIN WRONG?

WILL IT KEEP US OUT OF HEAVEN.

JESUS SAID GO AND SIN NO MORE

WHICH I TAKE TO DO YOUR BEST AND

REPENT IF YOU FALL, WHAT DO YOU

THINK?

PAT: I AGREE WITH YOU ON

THAT.

IF WE HAVE BEEN BORN OF THE

KINGDOM OF GOD, HOW CAN WE

CONTINUE TO SIN?

HE HAS BORN OF THE SPIRIT OF

GOD, THE BIBLE SAYS DOES NOT

KEEP ON SINNING.

THAT IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

YOU CANNOT KEEP ON DOING THE

STUFF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AND

SAY OKAY, I MADE A DECISION 20

YEARS AGO BUT I AM GOING TO LIVE

WITH THE DEVIL THE REST OF MY

LIFE, ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED.

LISTEN.

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO

HEAVEN?

BY THE WITNESS OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT IN YOUR HEART.

AND THE SPIRIT WILL BEAR WITNESS

WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD.

IF WE ARE DELIBERATELY BREAKING

THE LAW OF GOD ON A CONTINUOUS

BASIS AND KNOWING WHAT WE ARE

DOING, HOW CAN WE THINK WE ARE

SAVED?

IT IS CONDUCT THAT THE LORD'S

CONCERNED, NOT SOME DOCTRINE.

WE GET SAVED BY THE POWER OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, ALL RIGHT.

WHAT IS NEXT?

THIS IS KAREN, DID MARY AND

JOSEPH HAVE MORE CHILDREN?

PAT: YES.

GOSPEL MENTIONED IT A COUPLE

MORE TIMES, JAMES AND JOSEPH AND

WHATEVER OTHERS, YES.

AFTER JESUS WAS BORN, MARY AND

JOSEPH HAD A NORMAL MARITAL

RELATIONSHIP FROM ALL WE CAN

GATHER.

MARY HAD OTHER CHILDREN.

JAMES WAS CALLED A BROTHER OF

THE LORD.

YOU KNOW.

HE WAS HEAD OF THE CHURCH.

THAT MEANT COUSIN.

NO IT MEANT BROTHER.

TERRY: IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO

KNOW MORE ABOUT JESUS' FAMILY,

LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO WATCH IT

"FAMILY OF JESUS."

IT WILL BE ENLIGHTENING TO YOU.

PAT, THIS IS RUTH, MY SON JUST

WENT THROUGH DIFFICULT DIVORCE

AND CUSTODY.

HE SAID MOM, WHY DOES GOD ALLOW

THIS TO HAPPEN WHEN A CHILD IS

INVOLVED?

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO ANSWER HIM.

PAT: GOD CREATED US WITH FREE

WILL.

WE HAVE FREE WILL.

WE CAN CHOOSE TO LOVE HIM OR WE

CAN CHOOSE TO DISOBEY HIM.

WE CAN CHOOSE TO LIVE IN PEACE

OR GO TO WAR.

WE CAN CHOOSE TO BE GENEROUS OR

GREEDY.

THAT IS THE WAY WE ARE.

THAT IS THE THING THAT MAKES US

HUMAN IS THAT WE HAVE FREE WILL.

YOU SAY GOD KNEW IN ADVANCE.

HE WOULD PREVENT YOU AND YOUR

SPOUSE FROM HAVING SEX BECAUSE

HE KNEW YOU WOULD ABUSE THE

CHILD BEFORE IT WAS BORN.

NO WAY.

GOD IS GIVING YOU FREEDOM AND

YOU WILL HAVE TO BEAR THE

CONSEQUENCES.

WHY DIDN'T GOD INTERFERE?

GOD DOESN'T INTERFERE IN THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE.

WHY SHOULD HE?

TERRY: HE'LL NEVER LEAVE US

OR FORSAKE US, HE IS THERE WHEN

WE CALL ON HIM.

PAT: HE DOESN'T LIFT THE

PENALTY FOR FOOLISH ACTS.

YOU GET DRUNK AND DRIVE 100

MILES AN HOUR IN A CROWDED

HIGHWAY AND WOUND UP IN A

STRIKER FRAME AND SAY WHY DIDN'T

GOD STOP ME, [LAUGHTER], NO WAY.

TERRY: DEAR PAT, COULD YOU

EXPLAIN WHY THE TRANSFIGURATION

OF JESUS TOOK PLACE?

WHY DID HE APPEAR SO BRIGHT

WHITE AND WHY DID JESUS TAKE

THOSE DISCIPLES WITH HIM TO SEE

IT?

PAT: AT THE RISK OF BEING

TRITE, JESUS DIDN'T TELL ME WHY

HE DID ALL THOSE THINGS.

I HAVE TO GUESS.

MOSES AND ELIJAH.

MOSES REPRESENTED THE LAW,

ELIJAH REPRESENTED THE LAW.

THEY CAME TO BEAR TESTIMONY OF

JESUS CHRIST.

HE ROSE TO THE MOUND OF

TRANSFIGURATION AND BECAME

WHITER THAN ANY DRY CLEANER

COULD GET HIM.

HE DID THAT SO THEY WOULD SEE

THE GLORY OF GOD THAT WAS IN HIM

AND THE VOICE CAME AND SAID THIS

IS MY BELOVED SUN OBEY HIM.

THE LORD WANTED TESTIMONY OF HIS

POWER AND TO THOSE.

WHY DID HE TAKE THEM?

CERTAIN ONES AMONG THE 12 WHO

WERE VERY SPECIAL WHICH WERE

CALLED OUT FOR FURTHER SERVICE.

PETER WAS ONE, JOHN WAS ANOTHER.

THESE WERE JUST, YOU KNOW, IN

ANY GROUP, USUALLY TWO OR THREE

THAT STAND OUT.

THANKS FOR THE QUESTIONS, I HOPE

I COULD ANSWER THEM.

YOU ARE ASKING TOUGH STUFF.

[LAUGHTER].

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE FROM PROVERBS, WHOEVER

LISTENS TO ME WILL DWELL SAFELY

AND WILL BE SECURE WITHOUT FEAR

OF EVIL.

AND THE LISTEN IS TO WISDOM, SEE

YOU TOMORROW, BYE-BYE.

TOMORROW, TAKING THE GOSPEL TO

THE CORNERS OF THE WORLD.

WHAT GOD IS DOING IN NORTH

AFRICA IS UNPRECEDENTED.

PLUS ON THE ROAD TO THE

STANLEY CUP WITH NHL VETERAN

MATT COHEN.

THEN TRAPPED BY FEAR.

ONE WOMAN IS SET FREE.

THIS IS WHAT LIBERTY LOOKS

LIKE.
