The 700 Club - May 9, 2014

Gordon Robertson showcases many of the technological advances we enjoy today that came from Israel. Plus, the pains in Mary’s head and neck baffled doctors, but God had a plan. Read Transcript


THE JOYS OF PARENTING.

I JUST HAD THAT

CONVERSATION, LITERALLY, TWO

NIGHTS AGO WITH MY HUSBAND.

Gordon: BEHIND THE

SCENES OF THE NEW

COMEDY, "MOMS' NIGHT OUT."

PLUS, GET A SNEAK PEEK AT

THE EMMY NOMINATED SERIES.

WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE

PIKE WILL BE GREATER THAN

EVER.

*

Gordon: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THERE IS AN IMPORTANT DEBATE

IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW THAT

MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT.

AND IT COULD AFFECT HOW GOOD

YOUR INTERNET SERVICE IS AT

HOME AND AT WORK.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE QUESTION IS: WHAT'S THE

BEST WAY FOR THE WEB TO

OPERATE SO THAT EVERYONE HAS

THE BEST INTERNET POSSIBLE.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: EACH DAY THE

INTERNET BECOMES MORE

INTEGRAL TO THE WAY WE LIVE,

LEARN, AND DO BUSINESS, AND

THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS

COMMISSION HAS BEEN TRYING

TOTO FIGURE OUT HOW THE

INTERNET SERVES EVERYONE

EQUALLY, SO THAT NO BUSINESS

OR WEBSITE IS ABLE TO MOVE

FASTER OVER THE NET THAN ANY

OTHERS.

THE IDEA IS KNOWN AS NET

NEUTRALLITY.

WITHOUT NET NEUTRALITY,

PROVIDERS COULD GIVE CERTAIN

SERVICES TO CERTAIN

COMPANIES.

Reporter: BUT THE

F.C.C. THREW OUT THE NET

NEUTRALITY RULES.

BUT THE COURT GAVE THE

COMMISSION SOME GUIDANCE ON

HOW TO REWRITE THE RULES

WITHOUT LOSING IN COURT

AGAIN.

THE COMMISSION PLANS TO

RELEASE THOSE RULES NEXT

WEEK, AND THE CHAIRMAN SAYS

EVERYTHING IS ON THE TABLE.

IT IS REALLY INTEGRAL AS

THESE SERVICES OF INTERNET

BECOMES SO ESSENTIAL IN OUR

LIVES, AND NOW IS REALLY THE

TIME FOR THEM TO ACT.

Reporter: DERRICK AND

OTHER ADVOCATES FOR NET

NEUTRALITY WAS THE F.C.C. TO

RECLASSIFY THE INTERNET IN

FEDERAL LAW, SO THE INTERNET

WOULD BE CONSIDERED A

TELEPHONE, GIVING THE F.C.C.

FULL AUTHORITY TO REGULATE

IT.

CRITICS SAY IT DOESN'T

BELONG IN TODAY'S MODERN

TECHNOLOGY.

IT IS TECHNOLOGY THAT

WOULD HAVE BEEN FAMILIAR TO

GROVER CLEVELAND.

Reporter: INSTEAD OF

PUTTING THE INTERNET INTO

THE SAME CATEGORY OF PHONE

AND WATER SERVICE, HE ARGUES

THE AGENCY NEEDS TO STAY OUT

OF IT AND LET THE FREE

MARKET DETERMINE THE

FUTURE.

THE INTERNET IS DYNAMIC,

INNOVATIVE, CONSTANTLY

CHANGING AND COMING UP WITH

NEW IDEAS.

THE F.C.C. IS NONE OF THAT.

THE F.C.C. IS SLOW.

IT'S BUREAUCRATIC, AND IT

DOESN'T COME UP WITH NEW

IDEAS.

Reporter: HE COMPARES

IT TO THE HIGHWAY,

INCREASINGLY IN CONGESTED

AREAS, PEOPLE ARE GIVEN THE

OPTION TO PAY MORE TO GET

WHERE THEY'RE GOING MORE

QUICKLY IN SO-CALLED FAST

LANES.

HE SAYS IT MAKES SENSE FOR

FASTER INTERNET SERVICE

PROVIDERS TO BE ALLOWED TO

DO THE SAME THING.

CUT DEALS WITH COMPANIES

THAT WANT THEIR COMPANY

PRIORITIZED INTO A FAST LANE

INTO YOUR HOME.

UNLESS YOU BELIEVE THAT

MONEY IS AN ILLEGITIMATE WAY

TO ALLOCATE RESOURCES, THIS

IS TOTALLY UNOBJECTIONABLE.

IT SERVES COSTUMERS IN NEED,

AND THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO

OBTAIN IT IN THE

MARKETPLACE.

Reporter: BUT ADVOCATES

FOR NET NEUTRALITY ARGUE IF

COMPANIES CAN PURCHASE A

FASTER LANE INTO PEOPLE'S

HOMES, THE SMALLER, START-UP

COMPANIES WON'T BE ABLE TO

COMPETE.

GIVING THE F.C.C. ASPECTS TO

REGULATE THE INTERNET

GUARANTEES IT WILL REMAIN

OPEN.

BUT TUSSO SAYS IT WILL

ULTIMATELY LEAD TO WORSE

INTERNET SERVICE, NOT

BETTER.

F.C.C. VOTES ON THE NEWEST

PROPOSAL NEXT WEEK, AND THEN

THE PUBLIC WILL HAVE THE

CHANCE TO WEIGH IN.

IT WILL BE MONTHS, POSSIBLY

A YEAR, BEFORE ANY NEW RULES

ARE ADOPTED.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: THIS IS ONE

WHERE WE ALL NEED TO BE

INVOLVED IN THIS DEBATE

BECAUSE IT DOES IMPACT THE

FUTURE OF THE INTERNET.

AND IN PARTICULAR, THE

FUTURE OF START-UP COMPANIES

ON THE INTERNET.

IT HAS BEEN A GREAT LEVELLER

IN TERMS OF TECHNOLOGY,

WHERE YOU DON'T NEED A LOT

OF MONEY, YOU DON'T NEED

SIGNIFICANT CAPITAL IN ORDER

TO HAVE A MARKET INFLUENCE.

AND IF THESE RULES GET

PASSED, WHERE COMPANIES WITH

MONEY CAN BUY A PRIORITY

POSITION ON THE INTERNET,

THEN IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.

SO BE VOLVE.

LEARN HO -- SO BE

INVOLVED.

LEARN HOW YOU CAN LOBBY THE

F.C.C. AND LOBBY AGAINST

THESE RULES.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE VENON

BROTHERS ARE SPEAKING OUT

ABOUT WHY THEIR SHOW ON TV

GOT CANCELLED.

Reporter: DAVID VENOM

SAYS A SMEAR CAMPAIGN WAS

RUN AGAINST HIM AND HIS

BROTHER.

HE WAS TOLD BY SOMEONE CLOSE

THAT HE AND HIS BROTHER HAD

A PROBLEM.

THEY CANCELLED THE SHOW ON

WENDY AFTER A REPORT ABOUT

ONE OF THE BROTHER'S

ACTIVITIES AGAIN SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE AND ABORTION.

HE SAYS HGTV MADE A DECISION

ON ONE TINY SEGMENT OF THE

CULTURE.

AND HAD THEY HEARD FROM THE

REST OF THE CULTURE, I THINK

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN

DIFFERENT.

AT THIS TIME, IT IS OVER.

VENOM SAYS HE LOVES GAYS,

BUT HATES THE GAY AGENDA

THAT TRIES TO SILENCE PEOPLE

OF FAITH.

YOU CAN FIND THE STORY BY

GOING TO CBNNEWS.COM.

NIGERIA'S MILITARY SAYS ITS

ARMY IS COMMITTED TO RESCUE

THE 276 SCHOOL GIRLS THAT

WERE KIDNAPPED BY BOKO

HARAM.

BUT THE GROUP IS ON A BIGGER

MISSION, THEY WANT TO TURN

NIGERIA IS A SOVIET STATE.

Reporter: THEY DESCRIBE

BOKO HARAM AS A MONSTER THAT

NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH.

THE GROUP KIDNAPPED NEARLY

300 GIRLS IN NIGERIA, AND IN

A VIDEO RELEASED EARLIER

THIS WEEK, ANNOUNCED IT

WOULD CONVERT THE DAUGHTERS

OF CHRISTIANS AND SELL

THEM.

Translator: THERE IS A

MARKET FOR SELLING HUMANS.

Reporter: ALA SAYS, I

SHOULD SELL.

CBN NEWS TERRORISM ANALYST

ERICK STAKELBECK SAYS THAT

IS NO SURPRISE.

ACCORDING TO THEIR

LEADERSHIP, THIS IS MANDATED

IN ISLAM.

SLAVERY IS LEGAL IN ISLAM,

AND THE QURAN CALLS THIS

KIND OF THING THE SPOILS OF

WAR AND IT IS PERFECTLY

LEGAL.

NOW, DOES THE WORLD STEP IN

IN SOME WAY TO STOP THAT?

CAN IT BE STOPPED?

THAT REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

BUT RIGHT NOW NIGERIA

DOESN'T SEEM TO BE DOING

ENOUGH TO BATTLE AGAINST

THIS GROUP.

Reporter: NOW THE U.S.,

BRITAIN, AND CHINA ARE

INVOLVED IN SENDING TEAMS TO

NIGERIA TO HELP SEARCH FOR

THE GIRLS WHO WERE ABDUCTED

MORE THAN THREE WEEKS AGO.

OUR EMBASSY IN ABUJA IS

GOING TO SEND A CELL THAT

COULD PROVIDE INFORMATION ON

INTELLIGENCE, ON HOSTAGE

NEGOTIATIONS, AND TO HELP

WITH INFORMATION, SHARING

AND VICTIM ASSISTANCE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

LEADERS ACROSS THE U.S. ARE

PRAYING FOR THE GIRLS AND

URGING FELLOW CHRISTIANS TO

TAKE ACTION.

WE ARE HERE TO PRAY FOR

THESE YOUNG GIRLS, WHO ARE

STUDENTS, AND WHO'S ONLY

GUILT WAS TO SEEK

EDUCATION.

IT IS, IN FACT, A BLACK

EYE TO THE BODY OF CHRIST,

FOR CHRISTIANS TO BE

SILENT.

Reporter: A BIPARTISAN

GROUP OF CONGRESS ALSO

SHOWED THEIR SUPPORT THIS

WEEK, PAUSING FOR A MOMENT

OF SILENCE AND PRAYER FOR

THE SAFETY OF THE GIRLS,

AGES 15 TO 18.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THE DECINDER

DISINTEGRATEING SITUATION IN

UKRAINE HAS INVOLVED IN AN

ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACK AGAINST

JEWS LIVING THERE.

MANY ARE REPORTING ABOUT

ESCAPING TO ISRAEL.

SOME HAVE ALL RIGHT LEFT.

Reporter: 19 UKRAINIAN

JEWS ARRIVED IN ISRAEL THIS

WEEK, AFTER ESCAPING THE

VIOLENCE ENGULFING THEIR

COUNTRY.

OTHERS STILL WAIT AND WORRY

ABOUT RELATIVES LEFT

BEHIND.

I'M FROM GUNAS.

I ARRIVED TO ISRAEL IN 1991

WITH MY FAMILY.

BUT, STILL NOW, I HAVEN'T

FOUND MY AUNT.

SHE IS AGE 86, AND I'M VERY

WORRIED.

Reporter: ALINA WORKS

FOR THE JEWISH AGENCY,

HELPING PEOPLE COME HOME TO

ISRAEL.

FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE, IT

IS DIFFERENT.

IT IS DIFFERENT IN ALL

CITIES.

THE ONE THING THAT IS

COMMON, THAT WE FEEL THAT

THE JEWS WANT TO GO TO

ISRAEL.

Reporter: IN THE EARLY

1990s, MORE THAN IS

MILLION JEWS IMMIGRATED TO

ISRAEL FROM THE FORMER

SOVIET UNION.

MANY OF THEM FROM UKRAINE.

THAT TAPERED OFF, BUT NOW

IMMIGRATION FROM THE UKRAINE

HAS RISEN MORE THAN 100% IN

THE FIRST MONTHS OF THIS

YEAR.

FRIENDS, ALIN AR AND DARIA,

ARRIVED ON THIS WEEK'S

FLIGHT.

I'M FROM UKRAINE.

THERE IS A DIFFICULT

SITUATION IN OUR COUNTRY.

I LOVE ISRAEL.

I'VE BEEN HERE MANY TIMES.

I HAVE RELATIVES HERE.

THAT'S MY COUNTRY.

IT IS A HARD SITUATION.

EVERY DAY PEOPLE ARE DYING.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS

SAFER NOW TO BE THERE FOR

JEWS.

Reporter: THIS FLIGHT

WAS SPONSORED BY THE

INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN

EMBASSY JERUSALEM, WHICH

BEGAN HELPING JEWS IMMIGRATE

TO ISRAEL MORE THAN 25 YEARS

AGO.

THE EMBASSY HAS ALREADY

HELPED MORE THAN 40,000

UKRAINIAN JEWS COME HOME.

SOME TIMES IT WAS IN TIMES

OF CONFLICT.

THIS SEEMS TO BE ANOTHER

OCCASION WHERE JEWS ARE

ENDANGERED IN UKRAINE, AND

THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE

IN ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACKS, AND

THEY'RE WANTING TO COME

HOME.

Reporter: CARSON SEES

THIS RETURN AS PART OF

BIBLICAL PROPHECY.

WE DO BELIEVE THAT THE

RETURN OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

IS FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S

PROMISES TO BRING THE JEWS

BACK, EVEN IN THE HEBREW

PROPHETS, IT SPEAKS OF

GENTILES ASSISTING WITH

THIS.

AND WE SEE OURSELVES IN

SCRIPTURE AS THOSE JEN

GENTILES THAT GOT HAS

BECKONED TO HELP RETURN THE

JEWS BACK TO THE LAND.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN GETTING

PRAISE FROM AN UNEXPECTED

SOURCE: WRITERS IN THE ARAB

WORLD.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM A

NEW STUDY BY THE MIDDLE EAST

MEDIA RESEARCH INSTITUTE.

THEY SAY MOST OF THE ARAB

STORIES MAINLY COMPLIMENT

ISRAEL FOR ITS HIGH

TECHNOLOGY, AND THEY SAY

ARAB COUNTRIES SHOULD LEARN

FROM IT.

BUT OTHER WRITERS ALSO

PRAISE ISRAEL FOR ITS

DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM,

EDUCATION, AND REALITY.

AND ISRAEL ALSO ATTRACTS

GREAT JEWISH MINDS FROM ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

GORDON, THAT IS, INDEED,

UNEXPECTED, BUT FOR ISRAEL,

WELCOME PRAISE.

Gordon: IT IS A WHOLE

LOT BETTER THAN WHAT THEY'RE

USED TO, WHICH IS LET US

DESTROY THEM, DRIVE THEM

INTO THE SEA, WIPE THEM OFF

THE MAP.

THERE WAS A WHOLE LOT OF

PROMISE WITH THE ARAB

SPRING, AND WE'RE NOW

CALLING IT THE ARAB WINTER.

IS THE ARABIC WORLD GOING TO

GO DOWN INTO CHAOS, OR ARE

THEY GOING TO RISE UP INTO

DEMOCRACY.

THE FUNDAMENTAL POINT HERE

IS THAT CULTURE MATTERS.

AND SPECIFICALLY IN YOUR

CULTURE, WHAT ARE YOUR

THOUGHTS ABOUT GOD, AND WHAT

DOES GOD WANT TO DO FOR HIS

PEOPLE?

WHEN YOU GET THOSE THINGS

LINED UP, YOU GET A WHOLE

LOT OF INNOVATION.

AND COMING RIGHT UP, WE'RE

GOING TO HAVE A STORY ON HOW

ISRAEL IN VENTS, ISRAEL

INNOVATES, AND ISRAEL

IMPROVES, AND HEAR WHY IT IS

CALLED THE FUTURE OF THE

TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS.

THAT'S RIGHT AF AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: THE ENTIRE

STATE OF ISRAEL IS ROUGHLY

THE SIZE OF NEW JERSEY.

AND YET IT HAS THE LARGEST

NUMBER OF START-UP COMPANIES

PER CAPITA IN THE WORLD.

AND MORE COMPANIES LISTED ON

THE NASDAQ EXCHANGE THAN ALL

OF EUROPE.

SO WHAT'S THE SECRET TO

ISRAEL'S HIGH-TECH SUCCESS?

WELL, WE ASKED SOME OF

ISRAEL'S TOP BUSINESS

LEADERS, AND HERE IS WHAT

THEY HAD TO SAY.

ON APRIL 15, 2013, TWO BOMBS

EXPLODED DURING THE BOSTON

MARATHON, KILLING THREE

PEOPLE AND INJURING 264

OTHERS.

FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS,

INVESTIGATORS REPORTEDLY

USED A HIGH-TECH SYSTEM

CAUSED BRIEFCAM, TO ANALYZE

LOCAL SURVEILLANCE VIDEO.

HOURS OF VIDEO ARE CONDENSED

INTO MINUTES, AND EXPERTS

CAN ZOOM IN ON SUSPICIOUS

ACTIONS, LIKE A BACKPACK

BEING LEFT BEHIND.

BRIEFCAM'S VIDEOSYNOPSIS

WAS INSTRUMENTAL IDENTIFYING

THE TWO BOMBERS, AND THE

TECHNOLOGY WAS MADE IN

ISRAEL.

TECHNOLOGY IS GOING TO

CHANGE ALL OF OUR LIVES.

IT ALREADY HAS.

AND WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE

PIKE IS GOING TO BE EVEN

MORE INTENSE.

Gordon: ISRAEL HAS

OFTEN BEEN CALLED THE

START-UP NATION.

AND WHILE JERUSALEM MAY BE

THE SPIRITUAL HEART OF THE

COUNTRY, TEL AVIV IS THE

CENTER OF ITS START-UP

SUCCESS.

JUST A CENTURY AGO, THIS

THRIVING CITY WAS LITTLE

MORE THAN A SERIES OF SAND

DUNES.

TODAY IT HAS BEEN VOTED THE

SECOND-BEST HIG HIGH-TECH

CENTER IN THE WORLD.

ISRAEL WAS RECENTLY RANKED

THE FOURTH MOST INNOVATIVE

NATION IN THE WORLD.

FROM THE iPHONE TO THE

PLAYSTATION, MANY OF THE

IDEAS BEHIND YOUR FAVORITE

GADGETS CAME FROM INVENTORS

RIGHT HERE IN ISRAEL.

FLIP-TOP CELL PHONES,

KEYBOARDS FOR SMARTPHONES,

THE ABILITY TO PRINT

STRAIGHT FROM YOUR COMPUTER,

THE FLASH DRIVE, THE CHIP

AND THE iPAD, THE O.S.

THAT RUNS THE AMAZON KINDLE,

THE CHIP THAT CONTROLS THE

SONY PLAYSTATION, AND THE 3D

SENSOR IN THE XBOX CONNECT.

EVERY YEAR, AMERICAN

COMPANIES ARE SHELLING OUT

MORE AND MORE SHEKELS TO BY

ISRAELI START-UPS.

THE LATEST IS AN ISRAELI

SMARTPHONE APP THAT GIVES

LIVE TRAFFIC REPORTS BASED

ON YOUR LOCATION.

IT WARNS USERS ABOUT TRAGIC

JAMS, ACCIDENTS, AND EVEN

SITTING POLICE CARS.

IN 2011,p3THEY MAY HEADLINES

BY HELPING DRIVERS NAVIGATE

THE L.A. TRAGIC JAM KNOWN AS

CARMAGEDDON.

TWO YEARS LATER, GOOGLE

BOUGHT THE PROGRAM FOR JUST

UNDER A BILLION DOLLARS,

MAKING IT THE MOST EXPENSIVE

APP IN HISTORY.

I THINK THE KEY CHALLENGE

FOR ISRAELI COMPANIES NOW IS

TO GO FROM START-UP NATION

TO SCALE-UP NATION.

WE NEED TO BUILD EVEN BIGGER

COMPANIES, NOT JUST SELL

THEMTO AMERICAN MULTIPLE

NATIONALS, BUT TO CREATE

MORE JOBS BOTH HERE, IN

AMERICA, AND AROUND THE

WORLD.

Reporter: SO WHAT GIVES

ISRAEL ITS TECHNOLOGICAL

EDGE?

WE ASKED SOME OF THE

COUNTRY'S MOST PROMINENT

BUSINESS PEOPLE, AND THE

ANSWER IS, THERE IS NO

SINGLE ANSWER.

CHUTZPAH IS PERHAPS THE

MOST DEFINITIVE JEWISH

WORD.

VERY, VERY HARD TO

TRANSLATE.

GALL, UNRELENTING DARING,

THIS ABILITY TO TRY TO DO

SOMETHING WHICH NOBODY ELSE

HAS DONE BEFORE, TO SAY

SOMETHING WHICH IS A LITTLE

BIT OUT OF PLACE, TO BE IN

SOMEONE'S PLACE.

THAT HUT CHUTZPAH IS WHAT

ALLOWS US TO BREAK THE

BOUNDARIES, BREAK THE RULES,

AND GO OUT OF OUR COMFORT

ZONE IN ORDER TO CREATE NEW

THINGS.

THERE IS A JOKE ABOUT WHAT

IS THE JEWISH ANSWER?

IT'S A QUESTION.

IN OTHER WORDS, JEWS WILL

ANSWER A QUESTION WITH A

QUESTION.

THAT CULTURE OF CHALLENGING,

DEBATING AND ARGUING, IT IS

EVERYWHERE IN ISRAEL.

ARGUING IS HEALTHY BECAUSE

YOU GET TO BETTER ANSWERS,

YOU GET TO BETTER RESULTS.

AND I THINK THAT IS A KEY

CULTURAL ATTRIBUTE IN

ISRAEL'S ECONOMIC SUCCESS

STORY, IN ITS ECONOMIC

MIRACLE.

OUR ROOTS, OUR EDUCATION,

MAY BE THAT IT'S COMING FROM

THE TELMUD, AND IT IS ALWAYS

BEING SKEPTICAL IN US, IN

QUESTIONING.

AND I BELIEVE THIS

TRADITION, THIS CULTURE, IS

PART OF OUR D.N.A.

IT'S A BIG PART OF HOW WE

LEARN AND TEACH OUR KIDS.

IF YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A

SINGLE GROUP TO BASICALLY

MAKE YOUR IDEAL POOL OF

ENTREPRENEURS, YOU COULDN'T

LOOK FOR A BETTER GROUP THAN

IMMIGRANTS.

THEY MAKE GREAT

ENTREPRENEURS BECAUSE THEY

ALREADY DID IT IN THEIR OWN

LIVES.

THEY WERE THE C.E.O. OF

MYLIFE.COM.

THEY TOOK RISKS AND MOVED TO

A DIFFERENT COUNTRY, AND

THEY HAD TO HANDLE BANKING

AND MARKETING AND BASICALLY

HAD TO SCALE UP INNOVATION

AS A DIRECT CORRELATION TO

DIVERSITIY.

WE ALL THINK ALIKE AND ACT

ALIKE.

I'M SORRY, THEN IT IS NOT

GOING TO BE A PARTICULARLY

CREATIVE PLACE.

IN JEWISH LIFE, PARENTS

ALWAYS ADVOCATED TO LEARN

AND TO EXPERIMENT IF YOU

WANT TO SUCCEED.

THEY ALWAYS SAY THE SECRET

IS THE JEWISH MOTHER WHO

ASKS HER SON AT THE AGE OF

SEVEN, AFTER ALL WHAT WE

HAVE DONE FOR YOU, ASKING

YOU FOR ONE OTHER THING

REALLY ISN'T TOO MUCH.

Reporter: UCI VARDI HAS

INVESTED IN MORE THAN 80

INTERNET START-UPS,

INCLUDING A COMPANY STARTED

BY HIS SON.

HE AND THREE OF HIS

FRIENDS, I GAVE THEM THE

MONEY, AND I DIDN'T HAVE ANY

IDEA WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO

DO.

STILL, I GAVE THEM THE

MONEY.

AND THEY CREATED THIS

UNBELIEVABLE PRODUCT, AND

THE REST IS HISTORY, AS THEY

SAY.

Gordon: THAT

UNBELIEVABLE PRODUCT WAS

I.C.Q., THE WORLD'S FIRST

INSTANT MESSAGING SERVICE.

LESS THAN A YEAR LATER,

AMERICA ONLINE BOUGHT THE

COMPANY FOR $400 MILLION.

IT IS VERY HARD TO

EXTRACT THE D.N.A. OF

SUCCESS.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, IF

YOU VENTURE, YOU CANNOT DO

ONLY SUCCESSES.

BECAUSE IF SO, YOU'RE NOT

TAKING RISKS.

SO FAILURE COMES WITH THE

TERRITORY.

FAILURE IS NOT A FOUR

LETTER WORD, THE LAST TIME I

LOOKED.

FAILURE IS PART OF THE

PROCESS.

NOT EVERY TEAM WINS EVERY

GAME, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO TRY,

AND IF YOU FAIL, YOU'VE GOT

TO LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES

AND THEN PICK YOURSELF UP

AND DO IT RIGHT AGAIN.

ARE THE FAILURE RATES

LOWER IN ISRAEL THAN THEY

ARE IN THE REST OF THE

WORLD?

AND THEY'RE NOT.

ISRAELIS DON'T FAIL ANY

LESS.

THE DIFFERENCE IS THEY JUST

KEEP TRYING.

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND,

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU'RE

PRESENTED A CHOICE OF

INVESTING IN TWO

ENTREPRENEURS, ONE WHO HAS

NEVER TRADE IT BEFORE, AND

ONE WHO HAS TRIED AND

FAILED.

ALWAYS TAKE THE GUY WHO HAS

TRIED AND FAILED.

YOUR STATISTICAL ODDS OF

GETTING A RETURN ON YOUR

INVESTMENT ARE FAR BETTER

WITH THAT PERSON.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR THE NEXT

GENERATION OF HIGH-TECH

SUCCESS STORIES IN ISRAEL,

YOU WON'T FIND THEM IN

BUSINESS SCHOOLS.

IN MOST JOB INTERVIEWS HERE,

THE BIG QUESTION ISN'T WHERE

YOU WENT TO COLLEGE, BUT

WHERE YOU SERVED IN THE

MILITARY.

WHEN I GET A RESUME, THE

FIRST THING I LOOK AT IS

WHAT DID THIS KID DO IN THE

ARMY.

I DON'T LOOK AT THE

UNIVERSITY.

I LOOK AT THE ARMY UNIT.

BECAUSE THAT IS GOING TO

TELL ME A LOT ABOUT WHO THAT

PERSON IS.

IN ISRAEL, ALMOST EVERY

SINGLE ISRAELI SEX

TRAFFICKING IISRAELI SERVES

IN THE MILITARY.

THEY ARE PUT THROUGH THIS

TRAINING ON HOW TO LEAD, HOW

TO MANAGE, AND HOW TO MAKE

DECISIONS UNDER ENORMOUS

PRECIOUS.

PRESSURE.

AND THESE SKILLS HARD WIRE

YOUNG PEOPLE FOR BEING

ENTREPRENEURS AND LAUNCHING

OR HELPING TO RUN

START-UPS.

WE GIVE THE CHANCE FOR

EVERY SOLDIER TO EXPRESS

HIMSELF AND TO SAY WHAT HE

REALLY BELIEVES WITHOUT

PUNISHING HIM BECAUSE HIS

RANK IS A LOWER RANK.

SO I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT

SOMETIMES LISTENING TO THESE

OFFICERS, THEY HAVE A LOT OF

STUPID IDEAS, IN MY POINT OF

VIEW, 40%, 60%, BUT 20%,

40%, 60%, ARE WONDERFUL

IDEAS.

Gordon: ONCE THEY'RE

OUT OF THE ARMY, THEY TAKE

THE SKILLS THEY USED

TRACKING TERRORISTS, AND USE

THEM TO MAKING PEOPLE

SAFER.

THEY HAVE USED THEM FOR

EVERYTHING FROM

BOMB-SNIFFING DEVICES, TO A

SCANNER THAT LET'S YOU KEEP

YOUR SHOES ON AT THE

AIRPORT.

MANY ARE FOUNDED BY AN

ALUMNI KNOWN AT 8200.

THEY SPECIALIZE IN

CYBERWARFARE.

UNIT 8200 IS BELIEVED TO BE

THE BRAINS BEHIND THE VIRUS

THAT TARGETED IRAN'S NUCLEAR

FACILITIES.

IN MY COMPANY, THE R & D

TEAM, 80% OF THE ENGINEERS

ARE COMING UNIT 8200.

Gordon: THIS

MAJOR-GENERAL WAS THE

COMMANDER OF UNIT 8200 FOR

FOUR YEARS.

AND WHEN HE RETIRED FROM THE

ARMY, HE USED THAT

EXPERIENCE TO HELP DESIGN A

SECURITY SYSTEM KNOWN AS

SAFE ROUTE, A VIRTUAL

DOORMAN THAT USES BOTH FACE

AND FINGER RECOGNITION TO

PROTECT OFFICES.

ISRAELIS ARE PROUD TO SAY

THAT MANY OF THEIR HIGH-TECH

IDEAS COME FROM THEIR

EXPERIENCE IN THE ARMY, AN

IDEA THAT SOME SAY COULD

ALSO BENEFIT AMERICAN

COMPANIES.

AMERICAN BUSINESSES HAVE

A LOT TO LEARN ABOUT HOW

ISRAEL HAS INTEGRATED THEIR

MILITARY PEOPLE, WHEN

THEY'RE COMING OUT OF THE

MILITARY INTO THE ECONOMY.

IT REALLY HAS TO BE PART,

I THINK, OF EVERYBODY'S

CULTURE.

AND CERTAINLY THE HEROS

COMING BACK TO AMERICA, FROM

IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, THEY

NEED TO BE THE FIRST GUYS TO

GET THE JOBS BECAUSE THEY

HAVE ACTUALLY TAKEN

LEADERSHIP AND LED, AND

THEY'RE THE KIND OF PEOPLE

WHO YOU WANT TO HIRE.

Gordon: WELL, YOU JUST

SAW ONE PART OF OUR SERIES

CALLED "MADE IN ISRAEL."

AND IT'S BEEN NOMINATED NOW

BY THE DAYTIME EMMY WEARS

AWARDS FOR THREE DIFFERENT

AWARDS.

FOR ITS SCRIPT, FOR ITS

PHOTOGRAPHY, AND FOR ITS

EDITING.

YOU CAN GET ALL OF THE

SERIES IN OUR NEW

D.V.D., "LIVING UNDER GOD'S

BLESSING."

STAY TUNED, BECAUSE IT WILL

BECOME AVAILABLE ON MAY

16th, ONE WEEK FROM

TODAY.

Wendy: FASCINATING

STUFF.

COMING UP, THE COMEDY FOR

ANYONE HAS EVER NEEDED A

BREAK.

I WANTED SOMETHING THAT

WAS RELATABLE TH AT THE

CORE.

BUT PUTTING A LAYER OF

HYSTERIA UNDER THAT WAS A

REAL TREAT.

Wendy: WE'LL MEET THE

CAST OF CREW FROM "MOM'S

NIGHT OUT," NEXT.

MOMS MOMS

Wendy: MOTHER'S DAY

WEEKEND IS BRINGING

SOMETHING EXTRA THIS YEAR, A

MOVIE ABOUT MOMS AND THE

WHOLE FAMILY OPENS IN

THEATERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

STARTING TODAY.

"MOMS' NIGHT OUT" IS A

COMEDY ABOUT THE JOYS AND

CHALLENGES OF BEING A

PARENT, AND IT IS THE LATEST

IN A GROWING LIST OF

FAITH-BASED FAMILY FILMS.

CHARLENE ARJE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IN "MOMS'

NIGHT OUT", ELFE ELFEN AND

HER FRIENDS WANT AN EVENING

OF ADULT CONVERSATION.

BUT IN ORDER TO ENJOY A TIME

AWAY, THEY NEED THEIR

HUSBANDS TO WATCH THE KIDS

FOR A FEW HOURS.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING.

FOR SARAH JU, PLAYING A

STRESSED OUT MOM IN NEED OF

A BREAK WASN'T A REACH.

IT IS HILARIOUS BECAUSE

YOU'RE GOING, I JUST HAD

THAT CONVERSATION,

LITERALLY, TWO NIGHTS AGO

WITH MY HUSBAND, EXACTLY

LIKE THAT.

YOU KNOW?

AND THAT'S -- WHAT'S

WONDERFUL IS WE'RE ABLE TO

LAUGH AT OURSELVES.

Reporter: THE MESSAGE

IN "MOMS' NIGHT OUT" IS

ABOUT AFFIRMING AND

CELEBRATING MOMS FOR WHO

THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY DO.

IT IS A MESSAGE THAT COMES

ACROSS WITH LOTS OF LAUGHTER

AND HEART.

BROTHERS JOHN AND ANDREW

IRWIN DIRECTED THE

FAMILY-FRIENDLY COMEDY.

I WANTED SOMETHING THAT

WAS RELATABLE AT THE CORE.

BUT THE IDEA OF PARENTING,

AND THEN PUTTING A LAYER OF

HYSTERIA ON TOP OF THAT WAS

A REAL TREAT.

EVERY MINUTE YOU SPEND

WITH YOUR CHILD, EVEN IF

THEY'RE THROWING A FIT, OR

THEY'RE WRITING ON THE WALL,

ALL THESE THINGS THAT HAVE

HAPPENED TO ME, IT IS

BEAUTIFUL AND IT IS WORTH

IT.

Reporter: ACTRESS

ANDREA LOGAN CAME UP WITH

THE IDEA FOR THE FILM AFTER

BECOMING A NEW MOM.

THE GIFTS OF BEING A

MOTHER IS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN

US THIS.

HE HAS TRUSTED US TO TAKE

CARE OF THESE LITTLE SOULS

YOU CAN'T WALK AWAY FROM.

IT IS SUCH A LESSON OF

SELFLESSNESS, AND KNOWING

THAT THE FRUIT WILL

EVENTUALLY SHOW AND RIPEN.

Reporter: KEVIN AND

ALEX, OF "COURAGEOUS" FAME,

ARE ALSO PART OF THE CAST.

PARENTHOOD, THERE ARE A

LOT OF FUNNY THINGS.

MY KIDS WILL SAY THINGS I

THINK ARE HYSTERICAL.

AND THAT'S A LOT OF WHAT'S

IN "MOMS' NIGHT OUT."

MEN WILL SEE CHARACTERS

IN THIS MOVIE AND SAY, OKAY,

I'M ASHAMED TO SAY I'VE DONE

THAT, AND I NEED TO DO MORE

OF THAT.

THERE ARE GREAT EXAMPLES OF

WHAT TO DO AND NOT DO IN

THIS FILM.

Reporter: WE KNOW

PATRICIA HEATON FROM

"EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND,"

AND IN THIS FILM, SHE TAKES

THE ROLE OF A PASTOR'S

WIFE.

WHAT WAS INTERESTING

ABOUT THIS IS THAT THE OTHER

GALS IN THE MOVIE, THE

YOUNGER MOMS, LOOK UP TO HER

AND THINK SHE HAS IT ALL

TOGETHER.

AND SHE SAYS, IT'S NOT

REALLY THAT WAY.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

ANYBODY HAS EVER INVITED ME

OUT TO DO A NIGHT LIKE

THIS.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS SO

TOUCHING.

I HAD REALLY NEVER THOUGHT

ABOUT PASTORS' WIVES IN THAT

WAY.

Reporter: "MOMS' NIGHT

OUT" ALSO SHOWS THE

IMPORTANCE OF SPECIAL

MOMMY-DADDY TIME, WITH

WHOLESOME PASSION BETWEEN

ELFEN AND HIS HUSBAND.

MY CHARACTER IS THE

HUSBAND, WHO MAKES IT

TOTALLY EASY FOR HER TO LOOK

AFTER HERSELF.

LET ME SAY IT AGAIN.

I PLAY THE HUSBAND WHO,

DESPITE HIS BEST EFFORTS TO

BE THOUGHTFUL AND MINDFUL OF

HIS WIFE'S NEEDS, COMES UP A

LITTLE SHORT SOMETIMES.

AS MANY FATHERS ARE.

Reporter: "MOMS' NIGHT

OUT" IS FILLED WITH LOVE,

LAUGHS, AND FAITH, AS IT

CELEBRATES THE BEAUTIFUL

MESS CALLED APPARENTLY.

CHARLENE ARON, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THAT LOOKS

HYSTERICAL.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HEADACHE

THAT WAS SO PAINFUL THAT YOU

COULDN'T THINK.

MARY BILLBRIE HAS.

IT WAS JUST THIS DULL

ACHE, THAT LET ME FEELING

LIKE I WAS IN A FOG.

UNABLE TO GET MY THOUGHTS

TOGETHER, UNABLE TO

CONCENTRATE.

Wendy: SEE WHAT BROUGHT

HER RELIEF, LATER, ON

TODAY'S SHOW.

AND WELCOMEBACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A CULTURAL STUDIES CLUB AT

HARVARD UNIVERSITY PLANS TO

HOST A SATANIC BLACK MASK.

IT WILL STAGE THE SERVICE

NEXT MONDAY AT THE IVY

LEAGUE SCHOOL.

A SPOKESPERSON SAYS OF THE

EVENT "IT IS A DECLARATION

OF PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE AS

SOME SEE FROM

COUNTERCULTURAL EDUCATION."

THEY ARE HOSTING IT HAS AN

EXPLORATION INTO RELIGIOUS

CULTURES.

AND THEY RECENTLY TRIED TO

PLACE A MONUMENT NEXT TO THE

10 COMMANDMENTS AT ANDREW

ANDREAN OKLAHOMA

UNIVERSITY.

THERE WAS A VOLCANO THAT

ERUPTED THAT BURIED CROPS

AND IMPAIRING THEIR SOIL.

"OPERATION BLESSING" BROUGHT

IN PEOPLE TO TEACH THE

VILLAGERS HOW TO BUILD

RAISED BEDS.

FAMILIES PARTICIPATE IN

FAMILY WORKSHOPS ON FAMILY

FARMING.

AND THEY PROVIDED ORGANIC

FERTILIZER AND PLENTY OF

GOOD SEEDS TO GET STARTED.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY GOING TO ITS WEBS,

OB.ORG.

GORDON AND WENDY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: WELL, DOCTORS

DIDN'T KNOW EXACTLY WHY MARY

BILBRY WAS IN PAIN.

THEY GAVE HER SOME

MEDICATION AND THEN SENT HER

HOME.

AND THAT DIDN'T HELP.

AND MARY'S HEAD CONTINUED TO

THROB WHENEVER SHE OPENED

HER EYES.

IT WENT ON THAT WAY FOR

MONTHS, UNTIL MARY SAT DOWN

AND TURNED ON "THE 700

CLUB."

THE HEADACHES WERE DULL.

EVERY WAKING MOMENT, I FELT

LIKE A HAMMER HAD HIT THE

BACKS OF MY EYES.

AND IT WAS JUST THIS DULL

ACHE THAT LEFT ME FEELING

LIKE I WAS IN A FOG.

AND I WAS UNABLE TO GET MY

THOUGHTS TOGETHER.

UNABLE TO CONCENTRATE.

I LOOKED BACK IN MY JOURNAL,

AND IN AUGUST OF 2011, THIS

HAS BEEN A QUIET BUT HARD

DAY FOR ME, LORD.

THE PAIN BEHIND MY EYES AND

IN MY NECK ADD TO MY

STRESS.

ONE SIDE OF MY HEAD IS DARK

FROMVISION LOSS.

ANXIETY IS EVER-PRESENT.

I NEED ANSWERS AND I NEED

HEALING.

LORD, BLESS ME WITH HELP,

BOTH MENTAL AND PHYSICAL.

THE HIGHLIGHT TO MY EVERY

MORNING WAS TURNING ON "THE

700 CLUB."

ONE DAY GORDON WAS ON.

AND HE ALWAYS SEEMED TO HAVE

A SPOT-ON MESSAGE FOR

SOMEONE.

I THOUGHT, I REALLY NEED

HEALING.

BUT I'M NOT GOING TO BELIEVE

IT'S FOR ME UNLESS HE CALLS

MY NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS A

WOMAN NAMED MARY, AND YOU

ACTUALLY HAVE SAID, UNLESS

THEY SAY MY NAME --

BOY, THAT GOT MY

ATTENTION.

AND I'M THINKING, IF HE

PRAYS FOR MY HEAD, I KNOW IT

REALLY IS FOR ME.

Gordon: MARY, FOR YOU,

YOUR MIGRAINES ARE BEING

TAKEN AWAY.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE NORMAL

FUNCTION WITHIN YOUR BRAIN.

I WAS JUST REJOICING THAT

JESUS KNEW MY NAME, AND THAT

HE CARED ENOUGH TO MEET ME

RIGHT THERE.

AND THEN I REALIZED MY

HEADACHE WAS GONE.

AND I NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM

AGAIN.

I'M NOT A DOUBTER ANYMORE.

I BELIEVE THAT JESUS DOES

MIRACLES EVERY DAY.

I BELIEVE THAT THERE IS

NOTHING TOO HARD FOR HIM,

AND THAT HE WALKS BESIDE US,

AND WE NEVER HAVE TO FEAR.

HE GIVES US GRACE FOR THE

MOMENT, FOR THE DAY, AND

I'VE EXPERIENCED THAT.

Gordon: AND YOU CAN

EXPERIENCE IT, TOO.

REALIZE THAT GOD NUMBERS THE

VERY HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

AND THAT, TO ME, IS

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

THAT MEANS EVERY TIME I

BRUSH MY HEAD AND I LOSE A

FEW OF THEM, HE REMEMBERS

THAT.

HE KNOWS THAT.

HE IS KEEPING TRACK OF

THAT.

SO DOES HE KNOW YOUR NAME?

OF COURSE HE KNOWS YOUR

NAME.

DOES HE KNOW EVERYTHING

ABOUT YOU?

YES.

IS HE CONCERNED ABOUT YOU?

YES.

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE

WORLD -- THAT'S YOU -- THAT

HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN

SON, THAT WHO SO EVER WOULD

BELIEVE ON HIM WOULD NOT

PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING

LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS CAME TO DO

FOR US, TO GIVE US LIFE AND

GIVE IT TO US ABUNDANTLY.

HE DOESN'T INTEND FOR US TO

HAVE DISEASE.

THAT'S NOT LIFE.

HE INTENDS FOR US TO BE

WHOLE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS THAT,

JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH

WENT AROUND DOING GOOD,

HEALING ALL WHO WERE

OPPRESSED BY THE DEVIL.

THAT VERSE IS FOR YOU.

BECAUSE YOU'RE "ALL."

IF YOU'RE SICK, IF YOU'RE

SUFFERING, IF YOU'RE NEEDY,

YOU'RE PART OF "ALL."

AND JESUS CAME SPECIFICALLY

TO SET YOU FREE.

AND BY HIS STRIPES, YOU ARE

HEALED.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS

ALREADY HAPPENED.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR YOU TO

GET IT, TO RECEIVE THAT?

LOOK TO JESUS.

LOOK TO HIS SACRIFICE ON THE

COURTHOUSE. THE-- LOOK TO HIS SACRIFICE

ON THE CROSS.

THE MORE YOU UNDERSTAND, WHY

DID HE DO THAT?

WHY DID HE SUFFER AND DIE?

LOOK TO ISAIAH 53, WHEN HE

OFFERS HIS SOUL AS A

SACRIFICE FOR SIN.

HE SHALL SEE HIS

DESCENDENTS -- THAT'S YOU --

HE'LL SEE YOU.

AND HIS SOUL WILL BE

SATISFIED.

HE WILL BE SATISFIED BECAUSE

HE SEES THE RESULT OF HIS

SACRIFICE.

SO 2,000 YEARS AGO JESUS SAW

YOU.

AND HE PLANNED FOR YOU TO

COME INTO HIS KINGDOM.

HE PLANNED FOR YOU TO COME

INTO WHOLENESS, WELLNESS,

LIFE, FOR ALL ETERNITY.

THAT'S HIS WILL.

AND THAT'S WHY HE COMMANDS

US TO PRAY THAT THE FATHER'S

WILL WOULD BE DONE ON EARTH

AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

AND HE COMMANDED HIS

DISCIPLES TO DECLARE THE

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN HAS COME

NEAR YOU.

WHEN THE KINGDOM COMES, THEN

HEALING IS AUTOMATIC BECAUSE

IT'S GOD'S WILL TO HEAL.

NOW, WENDY AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY.

BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'VE GOT

SOME OTHER MIRACLES FOR

YOU.

GOD RECOGNIZED THAT PEOPLE

WERE IN PAIN AND WANTED TO

DELIVER THEM.

HERE IS CLAUDETTE, HERE IN

SUFFOLK, VIRGINIA.

SHE HAD SORENESS ALONG HER

SPINE, JUST BELOW THE

WAIST.

THE PAIN WOULD SHOOT DOWN

INTO HER FOOT.

THE DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HER

WITH SCIATIC NERVE DAMAGE.

MEDICAL PROCEDURES OFFERED

TEMPORARY RELIEF, BUT THE

PAIN ALWAYS RETURNED WORSE

THAN BEFORE.

SHE WAS LIVING ON

PRESCRIPTION PAIN PILLS.

THEN SHE WAS WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

AND, WENDY, SHE HEARD YOU

GIVE THIS WORD.

"YOU HAVE SCIATIC NERVE

DAMAGE.

IT IS CAUSING PAIN ALL THE

WAY DOWN TO YOUR FEET."

CLAUDETTE CLAIMED THE WORD,

AND THE PAIN WENT AWAY, AND

SHE STOPPED ALL MEDICATION,

AND THE PAIN HAS NEVER

RETURNED.

AND THAT'S A MIRACLE.

BECAUSE ONCE YOU HAVE NERVE

DAMAGE, THE NERVE IS

ACTUALLY DAMAGED, THAT

DOESN'T HEAL AUTOMATICALLY.

BUT WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE, AND CLAUDETTE GOT

A MIRACLE.

Wendy: AND ALSO JENNY

OF EL SEGUNDO, CALIFORNIA,

SHE SUFFERED WITH KNEE PAIN

FOR YEARS.

IT FINALLY REACHED A POINT

WHERE SHE COULD BARELY

WALK.

SHE DIDN'T HAVE INSURANCE

AND SHE COULDN'T AFFORD TO

SEE A DOCTOR.

ONE DAY WHEN JE JENNY I WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," HE

HEARD YOU, GORDON GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE "THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH CHRONIC PAIN IN

THEIR KNEES AND YOU CAN'T

AFFORD DOCTORS."

AND JENNY CLAIMED THE WORD

AND SHE BEGAN TO WALK WITH

NO PAIN.

JENNY HAS NOT HAD ANY KNEE

TROUBLE SINCE.

PRAISE JESUS.

Gordon: ISN'T GOD

WONDERFUL?

LET HIM BE WONDERFUL FOR

YOU.

THAT'S ONE OF THE NAME OF

THE MESSIAH, WONDERFUL

COUNSELLOR.

LET HIM BE WONDERFUL FOR

YOU.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO AGREE.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN TWO OR

MORE AGREE, TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE.

SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO --

BECAUSE FAITH IS AN ACT --

LAY YOUR HAND ON THAT PART

OF YOUR BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

WENDY AND I WILL AGREE WITH

YOU, AND SO WE'VE GOT THE

TWO OR MORE.

AND WE'RE TOUCHING, AND ALL

WE HAVE TO DO IS RELY ON

JESUS TO DO THE REST.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND WE COME TOGETHER IN

AGREEMENT.

IN AGREEMENT AND UNITY IS

WHERE YOU COMMAND THE

BLESSING.

SO WE AGREE.

AND WE AGREE ABOUT YOUR LOVE

AND YOUR CARE FOR US.

WE AGREE THAT YOU NUMBER THE

HAIRS ON OUR HEAD, THAT YOU

KNOW US BY NAME.

WE AGREE THAT YOU POURED OUT

YOUR LIFE SA AS A SACRIFICE

FOR US.

YOU SACRIFICED YOURSELF FOR

OUR SIN, FOU FOR OUR

DISEASE, FOR OUR

HELPLESSNESS.

WHEN WE COULD NOT DO IT ON

OUR OWN, YOU STEPPED IN AND

DID IT FOR US.

AND SO WE THANK YOU FOR

THAT.

AND WE RECEIVE WHAT YOU

SACRIFICED, WHAT YOU PAID

FOR, WE RECEIVE IT NOW IN

YOUR NAME.

WE LOOK TO YOU, THE AUTHOR

AND THE FINISHER OF OUR

FAITH, WE LOOK TO YOU.

AND WE RECEIVE THE AUTHORITY

THAT YOU'VE GIVEN TO US, AND

SO WE SPEAK OUT LOUD TO THIS

AREA OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING, AND WE DECLARE

OUTLOUD TO IT.

BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME, AND BE MADE WHOLE.

AND MAY YOU NEVER RETURN.

WE BIND YOU.

YOU SPIRIT OF INFIRMITY, WE

BIND YOU NOW.

AND YOU MUST LEAVE AND NEVER

RETURN.

AND NOW, JESUS, COME AND

BREATHE ON US.

FILL US WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT, WITH THE BREATH OF

LIFE.

RENEW OUR LIFE, RENEW OUR

JOY.

LET US HAVE THE

RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND

JOY IN YOU AND IN FELLOWSHIP

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

BE WITH US NOW.

WENDY, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU

SOMETHING?

Wendy: YEAH.

THERE IS A MAN, AND YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB," AND

YOU'RE IN A WHEELCHAIR, AND

YOU'VE GOT ONE LEG

STRAIGHTENED OUT AND ONE LEG

BENT.

AND THAT ONE LEG THAT IS

STRAIGHTENED OUT IS REALLY

BANGED UP FROM AN ACCIDENT.

AND YOU'RE JUST ASKING GOD

FOR A MIRACLE.

HE SEES YOU RIGHT NOW WITH

THAT ONE LEG STRETCHED OUT,

AND YOU'RE BEING TOUCHED

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A SEVERE

NECK INJURY.

YOU'RE ALSO IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

AND GOD IS HEALING AND

RESTORING YOU RIGHT NOW.

HE IS ABLE -- YOU HEARD THE

STORY OF A NERVE THAT WAS

DAMAGED BEING RESTORED.

GOD IS ABLE TO DO THAT FOR

YOU.

Wendy: YES.

Gordon: JUST RECEIVE IT

RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND RIGHT NOW, WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE, YOU'RE

ABLE TO DO.

YOU'RE ABLE TO TURN YOUR

NECK.

SO I KNOW YOU'RE AFRAID, BUT

RIGHT NOW, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, JUST BEGIN TO MOVING

AND REALIZE YOU'VE HAD A

TREMENDOUS MIRACLE FOR YOU.

AND IT'S WONDERFUL, WHAT GOD

IS DOING FOR YOU.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

SHOOTING PAINS INTO YOUR

RIGHT ARM AND YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER.

IT'S DEEP WITHIN THE

SOCKET.

GOD IS HEALING THAT AND

RESTORING IT.

BEGIN TO DO WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO.

REALIZE YOU CAN MOVE THAT

ARM FREELY, YOU CAN LIFT IT

UP OVER YOUR HEAD.

YOU CAN MOVE IT AROUND, EVEN

SCRATCH YOUR BACK.

GOD IS ABLE AND HE HAS

RESTORED YOU NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

Wendy: THERE ARE PEOPLE

SUFFERING WITH DIFFERENT

ADDICTIONS, ALCOHOL, DRUGS,

PAINKILLERS, AND YOU'RE JUST

CRYING OUT FOR DELIVERANCE

RIGHT NOW.

GOD SAYS, I DELIVER YOU

BECAUSE I DELIGHT IN YOU.

HE IS DELIVERING YOU RIGHT

NOW FROM THOSE ADDICTIONS.

JUST RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO

FOR US.

YOU CAME DOWN FROM HEAVEN TO

BE OUR SAVIOR.

AND WE THANK YOU FOR IT.

AND WE BLESS YOU NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

WENDY?

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

COMING UP, A FATHER WHO'S

HOME COLLAPSED AND HE WAS

FORCED TO RAISE HIS FAMILY

IN A CAVE.

HEAR WHY HE SAYS HIS DREAMS

HAVE NOW COME TRUE.

AND THEN LATER, WE'LL ANSWER

SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Gordon: FOR SEVERAL

YEARS, A MAN IN CHINA HAD

LOOKED FORWARD TO MOVING

INTO HIS FAMILY HOME.

WHEN HE FINALLY RETURNED TO

HIS HOME TOWN, THOUGH, HE

AND HIS FAMILY WERE STUNNED

BY WHAT THEY FOUND.

Terry: FOR YEARS,

MR. QWA DID ODD JOBS TO GET

BY.

HE DREAMED OF STARTING A

BUSINESS, A RAISING HIS

DAUGHTERS IN THE VERY HOUSE

HE GREW UP IN.

BUT WHEN HE FINALLY MADE IT

BACK, HE WAS DEVASTATED.

MY OLD HOUSE HAD

COLLAPSED, AND THE LAND MY

FAMILY ONCE HAD WAS A MESS.

THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD

PRODUCE ANY CROPS OR START A

NEW LIFE.

I FELT SORRY FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

Terry: ALL HE COULD

AFFORD TO RENT WAS A

RUN-DOWN,ONE-ROOM APARTMENT

INSIDE A CAVE, FOR $9 A

MONTH.

THE WIND BLEW RIGHT IN.

WHEN IT RAINED, THE HOUSE

LEAKED.

AND IT WAS VERY HOT IN THE

SUMMERTIME.

THE PLACE WAS DANGEROUS.

Terry: HIS DAUGHTER GOT

PNEUMONIA SEVERAL TIMES.

SHE WASN'T ABLE TO GET

THE REST SHE NEEDED TO

GROW.

I WANTED SO MUCH MORE FOR

HER.

I WANTED HER TO HAVE A

WARMTH, COMFORTABLE PLACE TO

LIVE.

MY HUSBAND TRIED TO MAKE

THINGS RIGHT FOR US, BUT

INSIDE I FELT LIKE THERE WAS

NOTHING BUT ROADBLOCKS

AHEAD.

Terry: THEN CBN OFFERED

TO HELP.

FIRST, WE GAVE HIM 25

GOATS.

THIS WAS EXACTLY WHAT WE

NEEDED.

I WOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE MY

BUSINESS AFTER ALL.

AND MY DAUGHTER WOULD GET TO

HAVE A HAPPY CHILDHOOD.

Terry: THE MILK FROM

THE GOATS MADE IT POSSIBLE

FOR HER TO GROW, AND SOON

SHE WOULD HAVE A BRAND NEW

HOME, ONE THAT CBN HELPED TO

BUILD.

I CRIED WHEN I HEARD THE

NEWS.

I HELD MY DAUGHTER AND SAID,

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A NEW

HOME.

THE HOUSE YOU BUILT US IS

BETTER THAN I EVER DREAMED

OF.

IT IS BIG AND BRIGHT AND

WARM.

AND WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR

THE BLANKETS, TOO.

IT IS NOT JUST A PLACE TO

LIVE.

IT IS HOPE FOR OUR FUTURE.

YOU GAVE US COURAGE TO

OVERCOME PROBLEMS.

AND YOU GAVE MY HUSBAND THE

RESOURCES AND THE CONFIDENCE

HE NEEDS TO PROVIDE A GOOD

LIFE FOR US.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US THE

GREATEST GIFT WITH HAVE EVER

RECEIVED.

STILL AHEAD, WE'LL "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, SO DON'T GO

AWAY.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

WE'VE GOT SOME GREAT "BRING

IT ON" QUESTIONS FOR YOU.

LYNN WRITES, "I AM IN A

YOUTH GROUP IN A CHURCH, AND

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TAUGHT

THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A

GENTLEMAN, AND WHEN YOU ARE

FILLED WITH HIM, HE WILL NOT

MAKE YOU ACT IN A WAY THAT

MAKES ANYONE UNCOMFORTABLE.

THAT BEING SAID, THERE IS A

GIRL IN OUR YOUTH GROUP, AND

EACH TIME SHE IS TAKEN BY

THE SPIRIT, SHE ROLLS ON THE

FLOOR AND LAUGHS.

I HAVE HAD PEOPLE LEAVE THE

GROUP BECAUSE THEY'RE

UNCOMFORTABLE.

I TOLD MY PASTOR, AND HE

SAID MY COMMENTS ARE FROM

THE DEVIL, AND IT'S IN THE

BIBLE.

MY FRIENDS ARE MISSING OUT

ON GOD BECAUSE OF HER.

IS IT OKAY WHEN PEOPLE ACT

LIKE THIS AT THE EXPENSE OF

OTHERS' SPIRITUAL LIFE

STRIKERS.

Gordon SPIRITUAL

LIFE?"

Gordon: YOU FIND THIS,

WHAT ARE THE GIFTS, YOU FIND

THAT IN CHAPTER 12 AND 13.

AND THEN PAUL SUMS IT ALL UP

IN CHAPTER 14.

THERE IS A DIVERGENCE HERE

BETWEEN LETTING THINGS BEING

DONE AND LETTING THEM BE

DONE IN ORDER.

I'LL GO AHEAD AND READ IT,

"LET ALL THINGS BE DONE

DECENTLY AND IN ORDER."

SO LET'S SPLIT THAT IN TWO.

SOME CHURCHES DON'T EVER LET

ANYTHING BE DONE.

SO IN TERMS OF MOVEMENT OF

THE SPIRIT, THERE IS NONE.

AND THEN YOU CAN GO OVER

BOARD, WHERE IT TURNS

CHAOTIC.

AND PAUL WARNS ABOUT THAT.

LET IT BE DONE, BUT IN ORDER

AND DECENTLY.

AND SO THERE IS A FINE LINE

YOU'VE GOT TO WALK IN THE

EXERCISE OF THE GIFTS AND IN

THE MANIFESTATIONS.

WHAT YOU'RE EXPERIENCING IS

EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED IN

CORINTH.

"IF THE WHOLE CHURCH COMES

TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE AND

ALL SPEAK WITH TONGUES, AND

THERE COMES IN THOSE WHO ARE

UNINFORMED, OR UNBELIEVERS,

WILL THEY NOT SAY THAT YOU

ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND?"

AND THAT'S WHAT'S GOING ON

IN YOUR YOUTH GROUP.

I LIKE TO REMIND PEOPLE WHAT

PAUL REMINDED CORINTHIAN,

THE SPIRIT OF THE PROPHET

ARE SUBJECT TO THE

PROPHETS.

THAT MEANS YOU'RE IN

CONTROL.

THE HOLY SPIRIT NEVER GETS

YOU OUT OF CONTROL.

SO IF YOU'RE ACTING OUT IN

THIS WAY, AND IT'S CAUSING

CONFUSION, THEN YOU NEED TO

GO TO THAT INDIVIDUAL AND

EXPLAIN TO THEM YOU CAN DO

IT A BETTER WAY.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM PSALMS: "MAY HE

GRANT YOU ACCORDING TO YOUR

HEART'S DESIRE AND FULFILL

ALL OF YOUR PURPOSE."
