SOMEONE WITH A BADGE HAS

A LOT OF POWER.

Gordon: A CROOKED COP

GOES ON THE RUN FOR 22

YEARS.

I WOULD JUST RUN INTO THE

WOODS AND NOBODY WOULD EVER

BE ABLE TO FIND ME.

Gordon: PLUS...

I NEVER SEEN THE CAR COME

THROUGH MY WINDSHIELD.

Gordon: TWO DRIVERS

TRAPPED.

THE STEERING WHEEL WAS

STUCK IN MY CHEST.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

Gordon: AND TWO SUPER

NATURAL RESCUES.

I SAW THESE HANDS REACH

PAST ME, WHERE THERE WAS NO

ROOM.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES

LET'S GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWSDESK.

GORDON, ISRAEL AND HAMAS

BEGAN OBSERVING A FIVE-HOUR

HUMANITARIAN TRUCE TO ALLOW

AID INTO THE GAZA STRIP

AFTER MORE THAN A WEEK OF

FIGHTING.

THERE WAS AN UNCONFIRMED

REPORT OF A POSSIBLE

PERMANENT CEASE-FIRE

STARTING TOMORROW.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THAT STORY FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: THE TRUCE

WILL BRING QUIET TO THE AREA

FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE

HAMAS BEGAN ITS ARE BARAGE

OF ROCKETS NEARLY TWO WEEKS

AGO.

SO FAR THE TERROR GROUP HAS

FIRED WELL OVER A THOUSAND

ROCKETS INTO ISRAEL.

ISRAEL CONTINUED ITS AERIAL

BOMBARDMENT TO STOP THAT

ROCKET FIRE, BUT TRAGICALLY

FOUR YOUNG PALESTINIAN BOYS

DIED ON ONE STRIKE ON A

GAZAN BEACH.

ISRAEL STRIVES TO AVOID

CIVILIAN CASUALTIES.

THE ISRAEL MILITARY IS

TAKING EVERY POSSIBLE STEP

THAT IT CAN TO AVOID

CIVILIAN CASUALTIES.

YOU CAN SEE IT.

IT IS ON LINE.

ALL OF THE FILM FOOTAGE IS

THERE OF PILOTS FLYING IN,

REPORTING THEY SEE PEOPLE,

AND THE CONTROL SAYS CANCEL,

GO AWAY, MOVE ON, COME

BACK.

THE MESSAGES ARE GOING OUT,

LEAFLETS ARE ARE GOING OUT,

AND PHONE CALLS, AND PEOPLE

ARE ARE BEING ASKED TO

EVACUATE.

WE'RE TELLING THEM WHERE

WE'RE GOING TO STRIKE.

UNHEARD OF IN MILITARY.

Reporter: MAHMOUD ABBAS

VISITEVISITED CAIRO TO HELP

BROKER A CEASE-FIRE.

BARACK OBAMA SAID THE U.S.

WOULD CONTINUE ITS

DIPLOMATIC EFFORTS.

President Obama: THE

ISRAEL PEOPLE AND THE

PALESTINIAN PEOPLE DON'T

WANT TO LIVE LIKE THIS.

THEY DESERVE TO LIVE IN

PEACE AND SECURITY, FREE

FROM FEAR.

THAT'S WHY WE'RE GOING TO

CONTINUE TO URGE DIPLOMATIC

EFFORTS TO SUPPORT THE

CEASE-FIRE.

Reporter: WHILE THE

DIPLOMATIC EFFORTS GO ON,

THE IDEA CONTINUED ITS

PREPARATION FOR A POSSIBLE

GROUND OFFENSIVE.

ISRAEL CALLED UP 8,000 MORE

TROOPS.

THAT RAISED THE NUMBER OF

TROOPS TO 56,000, GEARING UP

FOR AN INCURSION TO STOP

HAMAS ROCKET FIRE.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAID

ISRAEL WOULD USE AS MUCH

FORCE AS NECESSARY TO

RESTORE QUIET.

HE ALSO SAYS ISRAEL ACCEPTED

A CEASE-FIRE ENDORSED BY THE

U.N. AND THE ARAB LEAGUE,

WHILE HAMAS REJECTED IT.

HAMAS REPORTEDLY WANTS THE

RELEASE OF HAMAS PRISONERS,

AND THE OPENING OF THE GAZA

BORDER CROSSINGS.

AND NETANYAHU ALSO RAISED

THE IDEA OF A DEMILITARIZED

GAZA.

IN THE MEANTIME, IT SAID

ISRAEL WILL DO WHAT IT

NEEDED TO DO TO PROTECT ITS

CITIZENS.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

THANKS, CHRIS.

A LAWSUIT BROUGHT AGAIN

MERIAM IBRAHIM, THE

CHRISTIAN WOMAN SENTENCED TO

DEATH IN SUDAN, HAS BEEN

DROPPED.

HER MUSLIM FATHER DROPPED

THE LAWSUIT TO FORMALLY

ESTABLISH HER AS HIS

DAUGHTER.

THE MOVE COULD CLEAR THE WAY

FOR HER TO LEAVE SUDAN AND

COME TO THE U.S.

IBRAHIM WAS SENTENCED TO

DEATH IN MAY ON CHAMPS

CHARGES OF CONVERTING FROM

ISLAM TO CHRISTIANITY.

IBRAHIM SAYS SHE WAS BORN

AND RAISED CHRISTIAN BY HER

MOTHER WHILE HER FATHER WAS

OUT OF THE PICTURE.

WELL, THEY CALL IT THE BLUE

FLU.

THAT'S WHEN POLICE CALL IN

SICK TO PROTEST A CITY

POLICY.

THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

MEMPHIS RIGHT NOW, AND IT

TIES INTO OBAMACARE.

CHUCK COLTON HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: HUNDREDS OF

POLICE CARS SITTING IDLE IN

ONE OF THE HIGHEST CRIME

CITIES IN THE NATION.

IT IS THE LATEST UNINTENDED

CONSEQUENCES OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, OR

OBAMACARE, THAT WENT INTO

EFFECT THIS YEAR.

THE MEMPHIS CITY COUNCIL

RECENTLY DECIDED TO CUT

HEALTH CARE BENEFITS TO CITY

EMPLOYEES AND RETIREES.

IT WILL CUT SOME UNINSURED

SPOUSES, BUT THE REAL PAIN

WILL BE FELT LIE RETIREES,

WHO ARE BEING DROPPED ALL

TOGETHER.

NOW YOU'RE LOOKING AT

PUTTING PEOPLE IN THE

POSITION WHERE THEY'VE GOT

TO CHOOSE TO EAT AND GET

THEIR MEDICINE OR VERSES

THEIR INSURANCE.

Reporter: THOMAS MALONE

IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE

MEMPHIS FIREFIGHTERS'

ASSOCIATION.

BY PAYING THEY'LL HAVE TO

PAY 100% OF THEIR PREMIER,

FOR A FAMILY IT WOULD GO

FROM $325 A MONTH TO $1600,

$1800 A MONTH.

Reporter: AND THE CITY

FIREFIGHTERS AND POLICE ARE

ANGRY THAT THE POLICY WASN'T

COMPLETELY REWRITTEN BEFORE

IT WAS PASSED.

THERE YOU GO, YOU PASS

SOMETHING AND NOBODY READ

IT, AND THAT'S WHAT WE'VE

GOT HERE.

WE'VE GOT A SMALLER VERSION

OF WHAT OCCURRED IN D.C.

AND THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING

HERE.

Reporter: DOWN HERE IN

TOUDOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, IT IS

A HOT SPOT.

TYPICALLY THERE WILL BE 70,

80 OFFICERS CANVASSING THIS

AREA.

TONIGHT, AT LEAST A THIRD

LESS THAN THAT.

THAT'S BECAUSE MANY OF THE

OFFICERS IN MEMPHIS ARE ARE

CALLING IN SICK TO PROTEST

THE CHANGES TO THEIR HEALTH

CARE POLICY.

THE CITY HAS HAD TO BRING IN

SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES TO MAKE

UP THE DIFFERENCE.

CLYDE

KENAN REPRESENTS THE

CITY'S RETIRED POLICE

OFFICERS.

WE'RE GOING TO BE ASKING

FOR AN INJUNCTION IN COURT

TO PROHIBIT THE CITY FROM

GOING FORWARD WITH THIS

PLAN.

FOR THOSE IN THEIR 60 AND

70s, THAT WOULD BE A CAT

CATASTROPHIC HIT.

WE WILL LITERALLY HAVE

PEOPLE DYING.

Reporter: KENAN EX

EXCLAIMS THEY MET WITH

PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON BEFORE

THEY TALK TO THEIR PEOPLE.

MOST OF OUR PEOPLE ARE

ARE NOT EL.

(AUDIENC ELIGIBLE FOR

AFFORDABLE CARE.

Reporter: MANY CHOOSE

TO FUND THEIR OWN PENSIONS

AND INSURANCE.

BUT

IF THEY KINDS OF CHANGES

TAKE HOLD, MANY MORE RETIRED

PUBLIC SERVE VAPT SERVANTS

COULD FIND THEMSELVES

LOOKING AT A VERY DIFFICULT

ROAD AHEAD.

FROM MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, I'M

CHUCK HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, CHUCK.

AND THAT'S CBN'S TOP STORIES

FOR CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.

*

Gordon: ROBERT DAVIS

WAS ONE OF AMERICA'S LONGEST

RUNNING FUGITIVES.

HE WAS HUNTED BY THE F.B.I.

AND U.S. MARSHALS FOR 22

YEARS.

BUT BEFORE ROBERT WAS A

FUGITIVE, HE WAS A COP.

Reporter: ROBERT LEON

DAVIS WAS A CROOKED COP.

JUST ABOUT EVERY CRIME

YOU COULD NAME, WE DID.

AND ALL THE WHILE WE WERE

WEARING A BADGE.

SOMEONE WITH A BADGE HAS A

LOT OF POWER.

Reporter: HE GREW UP A

HARD-HEADED CHILD IN THE

CARE OF HIS CHRISTIAN

GRANDMOTHER.

SHE USED BIBLE STORIES TO

TEACH HIM RIGHT FROM WRONG.

SHE SAID, ONE DAY YOU

WILL REMEMBER -- WHEN I'M

GONE, YOU WILL REMEMBER THE

THINGS I'M TELLING YOU NOW.

Reporter: HE JOINED THE

NEW ORLEANS POLICE

DEPARTMENT WITH GOOD

INTENTIONS AND OUTSTANDING

ABILITY.

I WENT ON WITH THE -- YOU

KNOW, WITH GOOD HOPES AND

TRYING TO, AS MUCH AS ONE

MAN CAN, CHANGE THE WORLD.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE FEW

PLACES THAT SPELLS

HONORABLE.

Reporter: BUT HIS IDEAS

ABOUT CHANGING THE WORLD

WERE CHALLENGED HIS FIRST

DAY ON THE JOB.

THE SENIOR OFFICER I'M

RIDING WITH, WITH 17 YEARS

OF EXPERIENCE, STARTED

STOPPING GUYS FOR NO

REASON.

STARTED SEARCHING GUYS FOR

NO REASON.

STARTED STOPPING VEHICLES

FOR NO REASON.

HE WAS JUST DOING CRAZY

STUFF.

HE WAS DOING EVERYTHING THAT

THE ACADEMY SAID DON'T DO.

Reporter: HE FILED A

COMPLAINT WITH SUPERVISORS,

BUT THEY CONVINCED HIM TO

THINK TWICE BEFORE BLOWING

THE WHISTLE ON ANOTHER

OFFICER.

SO AT THAT VERY MOMENT, I

REALIZED WHAT I WAS GETTING

INVOLVED IN.

I REALIZED THIS PARTICULAR

FORCE I WAS ON WAS CORRUPT,

BUT I REALIZED THAT I HAD

TWO CHOICES TO MAKE: EITHER

I GET OUT OF THIS OR I JOIN

THE CLUB.

UNFORTUNATELY, I JOINED THE

CLUB.

EVERYTHING GRANDMA TOLD ME

IS OUT THE DOOR NOW.

CORRUPTION IS DEEP WITHIN

ME.

I THINK AT THE RATE I WAS

GOING, I COULD HAVE WOUND UP

KILLING SOMEBODY.

Reporter: ROBERT AND

HIS PARTNERS ADMINISTERED

THEIR OWN FORM OF STREET

JUSTICE.

BRIBE SOMEONE MONDAY,

HAVE SEX WITH SOMEONE,

UNWARRANTED, ON TUESDAY.

YOU'RE TRANSPORTING DRUGS ON

WEDNESDAY.

YOU'RE PROTECTING DRUG

ADDICTS THURSDAY.

EVEN INTERNAL HAS TO MAKE A

MOVE.

Reporter: COMPLAINTS

AGAINST HIM PILED UP.

INTERNAL AFFAIRS SET UP

SURVEILLANCE AND CAUGHT

ROBERT BREAKING THE LAWS HE

WAS SWORN TO PROTECT.

I WAS LOOKING AT 30 YEARS

IN ANGOLA.

I ALREADY HAD PLACED 27

PEOPLE IN THE SAME PRISON.

AND THE WORD HAD CAME DOWN

THAT ONCE I WAS FOUND

GUILTY, THEY WOULD RAPE ME

AND THEY WOULD KILL ME.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO BE

DEAD WITHIN 24 HOURS OF

BEING PLACED IN ANGOLA.

Reporter: HE DECIDED TO

RUN AWAY BEFORE HE CAME TO

TRIAL.

WHILE OUT ON BAIL, HE

STUDIED SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES

AND LEARNED HOW TO MAKE HIS

WAY AS A FUGITIVE.

HE MADE HIS WAY TO CANADA.

I COULD JUST RUN INTO THE

WOODS AND NOBODY WOULD ABLE

TO FIND ME.

SOMETIMES I WOULD COME OUT

TO EARN $20, $30 PLACE TO

GET SOME CANNED GOODS.

Reporter: FOR 22 YEARS,

HE CROSSED THE U.S. AND

CANADIAN BORDERS, USING

DIFFERENT NAMES IN DIFFERENT

CITIES.

HE LIVED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE

HE COULD BE CAUGHT AT ANY

MOMENT, AND HE BLAMED GOD

FOR HIS CIRCUMSTANCES.

HOW COULD THERE BE A

GOD?

THIS GOD THING, IT IS A

CHARADE.

IT CAN'T BE TRUE.

AND, PLEASE, DON'T MENTION

JESUS CHRIST.

I REALLY DIDN'T -- I HAD AN

AFFINITY FOR DISLIKING HIM.

I WAS, LIKE, THIS GUY, HE'S

A FARCE.

I BECAME AN ANG ATHEIST, A

HARD-CORE ATHEIST.

Reporter: AFTER YEARS

OF LIVING ON THE RUN, ROBERT

THOUGHT OF KILLING HIMSELF.

FOR A STRETCH OF TWO OR

THREE DAYS, I WAS GOING

BETWEEN SUICIDE AND ALL

KINDS OF FEELINGS.

SO MANY THINGS STARTED

COMING UP.

I BELIEVE AT THAT POINT I

JUST WANTED TO END IT ALL.

I HAD A PISTOL WITH ME AND I

THOUGHT ABOUT IT.

Reporter: YET PASSAGES

FROM THE BIBLE THAT HIS

GRANDMOTHER TAUGHT HIM CAME

TO MIND.

ROBERT DECIDED TO TEST GOD,

AND GOD ANSWERED.

I KEPT TESTING HIM WITH

MANY, MANY THINGS.

THERE WAS AN OLD COFFEE CAN

OUT THERE, AND I TOOK A ROCK

AND I PLACED IT ON TOP OF AN

UPSIDE DOWN CAN.

I SAID IF I WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING AND THAT ROCK IS

UNDER THEEJ THA UNDERNEATH

THAT CAN, I BELIEVE YOU

EXIST AND I WILL TURN MYSELF

IN.

AND WHEN I WOKE UP, THE ROCK

WAS NOT ON THE CAN.

I NEVER HAD THE COURAGE TO

LOOK UNDERNEATH THAT CAN.

WHEN YOU REALLY THINK YOU'RE

DEALING WITH THE LIVING GOD

IN PERSON IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE

WOODS IN TENNESSEE,

THAT'S

A VERY, VERY SCARY

FEELING.

AND I INSTANTLY -- INSTANTLY

LOST ALL EIGHT ATHEISTIC

VIEWPOINTS, AND REACHED BACK

OUT TO WHERE I WAS BEFORE

WITH MY GRANDMOTHER.

VISIONS OF MY GRANDMOTHER,

AND VISIONS OF BIBLE

PASSAGES BEGAN TO COME BACK

IN MY HEAD.

AND I, THAT VERY NEXT DAY,

SURRENDERED TO LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

I FIRST SURRENDERED TO GOD.

Reporter: HE WENT BACK

TO NEW ORLEANS A NEW MAN,

READY TO FACE THE CHARGES

AGAINST HIM.

I COULD NOT FATHOM A GOD

THAT WAS TELLING ME TO

SURRENDER ONLY TO BE

SURRENDERING TO DEATH.

IT HAD TO BE SURRENDERING TO

LIFE.

I COULD NOT KNOW THAT THE

JUNIOR COLLEGE WA JUDGE WAS

GOING TO RELEASE ME.

I ACTUALLY THOUGHT I WOULD

GET THE 30 YEARS.

SHE FELT I HAD SERVED

TIME, AND SHE WAS GOING TO

TAKE A CHANCE ON ME.

SHE TOLD ME THAT, I'M GOING

TO TAKE A CHANCE ON YOU.

Reporter: ROBERT IS A

FREE MAN.

HE TELLS HIS STORY TO POLICE

ACADEMY RECRUITS, AND WORKS

TO BRING ROGUE COPS TO

JUSTICE.

I FEEL MY VERY FIRST

REASON TO COME OUT OF THE

WOODS IS TO ASSIST PEOPLE.

TO ENCOURAGE ONE COP NOT TO

DO WHAT I DID.

Reporter: AS HE LOOKS

BACK ON HIS 22 YEARS ON THE

RUN FROM GOD AND THE LAW, HE

NOW KNOWS THAT HE WAS NEVER

ALONE.

GOD WAS THERE FOR ME, AND

HE IS THERE FOR ME NOW.

I FORGOT GOD.

AND I HATED HIM.

BUT GOD DIDN'T FORGET ME.

AND AS MUCH AS I HATED HIM,

HE LOVED ME.

Gordon: AND GOD HASN'T

FORGOTTEN YOU.

YOU MAY HAVE REJECTED HIM.

YOU MAY HAVE THOUGHT, OKAY,

THIS IS ALL A CHARADE, JUST

LIKE ROBERT DID, THAT THERE

CAN'T BE ANYTHING HERE.

CAN ANY OF THIS BE TRUE?

CAN WHY 'LEARNE I LEARNED

AS A CHILD, WHAT MY

GRANDPARENTS TAUGHT ME, WHAT

MY PARENTS TAUGHT ME --

MAYBE JUST LIKE ROBERT, YOU

FOUND YOURSELF DEEP IN THE

WOODS, WONDERING WHAT IS

THIS ALL ABOUT?

HOW CAN I FIND MY WAY HOME?

WELL, THE GOOD NEWS -- AND

IT'S GREAT NEWS -- IS GOD

HASN'T FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU.

AND HE IS LOOKING FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

JESUS IS REAL SPECIFIC.

HE LEAVES THE 99 TO GO FIND

THE LOST ONE.

AND HE IS CONSTANTLY DOING

THAT.

AND HE IS THERE FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

IF YOU JUST ASK HIM.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CRY

OUT AND SAY, JESUS, HEAR I

AM.

IF YOU'RE REAL, IF THIS IS

FOR REAL, COULD YOU SHOW

ME.

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME.

AND LET ME KNOW.

NOW, HERE IS THE GOSPEL.

SO OFTEN WE FIND IT VERY

HARD TO BELIEVE THIS KIND OF

THING, THAT GOD REALLY LOVES

US.

BUT HERE IS THE GOSPEL.

GOD MADE YOU.

YOU'RE HIS CHILD.

WE WERE ALL MADE IN THE

IMAGE OF GOD.

WHAT WAS HIS PLAN?

HIS PLAN WAS THAT YOU AND I

WOULD BE IN A GARDEN WITH

HIM.

AND HE WOULD COME DOWN IN

THE COOL OF THE EVENING AND

TALK WITH US.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTED.

HE WANTED TO HAVE

RELATIONSHIP FROM THE VERY

BEGINNING.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTED.

BUT, WHAT HAPPENED, WE

MESSED IT UP.

WE DID SOMETHING THAT HE

VERY CLEARLY TOLD US NOT TO

DO.

AND WITH THAT CAME THE

KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL

AND THEN THAT.

WE STARTED JUDGING OURSELVES

AND JUDGING ALL OF THE

PEOPLE AROUND US.

NOBODY MEASURED UP.

NOBODY WAS GOOD ENOUGH.

AND WHEN WE LOOK IN THE

MIRROR, WE SEE IT, AND WE

LITERALLY CONDEMN

OURSELVES.

WE JUDGE OURSELVES.

AND WE STARTED THINKING, HOW

CAN A RIGHTEOUS AND A HOLY

GOD HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH

ME.

AND SO WE TURN AWAY.

AND WE REJECT HIM.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS GOD

DIDN'T GIVE UP ON HIS

DREAM.

HE SAID, I'VE GOT A WAY.

I'LL SEND JESUS.

AND HE'LL TAKE THE PENALTY.

HE'LL DIE FOR ALL SINS FOR

ALL PEOPLE FOR ALL TIMES.

AND THEN WHEN HE HAS

COMPLETED THAT, I'M GOING TO

RAISE HIM FROM THE DEAD SO

THAT HE CAN BE THE FIRSTBORN

INTO THE NEW LIFE FOR ALL MY

CHILDREN.

AND WITH THAT, JESUS WANTS

TO BRING A WHOLE LOT OF

PEOPLE, A WHOLE LOT OF

BROTHERS AND SISTERS WITH

HIM.

AND HE DECLARES IT, THERE

ARE MANY DWELLING PLACES.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

AND IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN HE

COMES.

NOW, HE DOESN'T WANT BLIND

FAITH.

HE'LL SHOW YOU.

YOU CAN PUT A ROCK ON TOP OF

A CAN AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

BUT HERE IS THE PRAYER FOR

YOU: JESUS, IF YOU'RE THERE,

WILL YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

WILL YOU COME INTO MY

HEART?

CAN YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN?

CAN YOU SHOW ME THAT I'M

FORGIVEN?

CAN YOU LOVE ME JUST AS YOU

SHOWED ROBERT THAT YOU LOVED

HIM?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, HE'LL

ANSWER.

HE'LL COME IN.

THIS ISN'T SOME JOKE THING

THAT YOU DO.

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT

YOU DO AS A TEST.

THIS IS SOMETHING YOU DO

WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, AND

THEN YOU FIND HIM.

IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF THIS

IS WHAT YOU WANT, BOW YOUR

HEAD RIGHT NOW.

DON'T CHANGE THIS CHANNEL.

BUT RIGHT NOW LET TODAY BE

THE DAY YOU COME OUT OF THE

WOODS, YOU COME HOME, AND

YOU FIND THAT GOD IS REAL

AND HE IS WAITING FOR YOU.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU, AND I

OPEN MY HEART TO YOU, AND I

ASK THAT YOU COME IN.

JESUS, PLEASE FORGIVE ME OF

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE

DONE WRONG.

I WANT YOU TO MAKE ME NEW

AGAIN, TO RESTORE ME, TO

CLEANSE ME, TO SET ME FREE.

AND, JESUS, IF YOU'LL DO

THIS FOR ME, I PROMISE TO

FOLLOW YOU ALL OF THE DAYS

OF MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM,

A BAPTISM OF YOUR LOVE.

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEIR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD AND

YOU HAVE ACCEPTED THEM ONCE

AGAIN INTO YOUR FAMILY.

BE WITH THEM.

GIVE THEM PEACE.

FORGIVE THEM OF ALL OF THEIR

SINS.

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE'LL

BELIEVE IN OUR HEARTS AND

THEN CONFESS WITH OUR MOUTH

WE SHALL BE SAVED.

WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS DO

THAT.

PICK UP THE PHONE, MAKE A

TOLL-FREE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH THAT

GUY ON TV.

I ASKED JESUS INTO MY HEART,

AND I WANT TO TELL SOMEBODY

I DID THAT.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, HE

TOOK HOME THE GRAND PRIZE ON

THE REALITY SHOW "TOP

SHOT."

I GOT MY FREE TICKET INTO

THE FINALE BY HITTING A GOLF

BALL AT 100 YARDS, AND

NOBODY ELSE COULD COME

CLOSE.

Terry: AND HE TELLS US

HIS SECRET FOR HITTING THE

TARGET, SO DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: THE TV SHOW,

"TOP SHOT" FEATURES NAVY

SEALS, ARMY VETS, AND F.B.I.

A'S.

BU AGENTS.

BUT THE WINNER OF THIS

SEASON'S SHOW ISN'T A

MARKSMAN BY TRADE.

HE IS A 20-YEAR-OLD CAMP

COUNSELLOR NAMED DUSTIN

ELERMAN.

Reporter: "TOP SHOT" IS

A HISTORY CHANNEL LESSON TO

THE REALITY SHOW.

16 SHARP-SHOOTERS MUST

MASTER THE MOST PRIMITIVE OF

WEAPONS TO THE MOST

SOPHISTICATED, AT THE SAME

TIME OVERCOMING GRUELING

OBSTACLES.

DUSTIN WENT ON TO WIN THE

TOP SPOT ON THE SHOW.

BUT UNLIKE THE OTHER

CONTESTANTS, HE IS

SELF-TAUGHT.

SO TODAY HE IS GOING TO SHOW

ME A THING OR TWO.?>úO

ALL RIGHT, BUDDY, SHOW ME

WHAT YOU'VE GOT.

I'M GOOD.

Reporter: WHAT ARE WE@c

SHOOTING AT?

PENNIES AT 50 YARDS.

CHEAPER THAN DIMES.

THERE WE GO.

Reporter: ALL OF THEM

DONE.

I THINK WE'RE BREAKING SOME

SORT OF FEDERAL LAW.

I THINK SO.

Reporter: MANY VIEWERS

CONSIDERED DUSTIN THE LEAST

LIKELY TO ONE.

AT ONLY 28 YEARS OLD, HE AND

HIS WIFE, BRITTANY, RUN A

CHRISTIAN SUMMER CAMP IN

TEXAS.

Reporter: CAMP ISRAEL

IS FOUNDED BY MY PARENTS.

IT IS A SUMMER CHRISTIAN

KIDS' CAMP.

WE HAVE TONS OF JUST COOL,

FUN ACTIVITIES, AND WE SHOW

THEM A GOOD TIME AND TEACH

THEM ABOUT JESUS.

Reporter: THE IDEA OF

COMPETING ON "TOP SHOT"

SOUNDED LIKE A FUN ADVENTURE

AT FIRST.

ONCE I STARTED GETTING

INTO THE CASTING PROCESS AND

THINGS STARTED GETTING MORE

SERIOUS, I WAS, LIKE, WOW,

THREE MILLION VIEWERS, GOD

COULD USE THIS AS A

PLATFORM.

AND I STARTED TO SEE HOW HE

MIGHT WANT ME IN THAT.

AND IT IS REALITY TV, SO YOU

JUST HAVE TO BE YOURSELF.

THAT'S EASY.

Reporter: DUSTIN SPENT

A LOT OF TIME WITH THE 13

OTHER MALE CONTESTANTS ON

THE SHOW.

MOST OF THE GUYS IN THE

HOUSE ARE GREAT AND

HONORABLE SPORTSMEN AND GUN

GUYS.

I KIND OF WENT IN THINKING I

MIGHT BE INSULTED OR

PERSECUTED, BUT REALLY I HAD

A LOT OF RESPECT FROM THE

GUYS.

IT WAS NEAT, ASKING ME ABOUT

MY FAITH AND LETTING ME

SHARE IN LITTLE WAYS.

Reporter: HOW DID YOU

BECOME THE TOP SHOT?

IT IS SOMETHING IN ME.

MY SUMMERS WERE SPENT AT MY

GRANDPARENTS' FARM, AND

SHOOTING AT THE TREES WITH

B.B.s.

Reporter: DUSTIN TAUGHT

HIMSELF PRACTICALLY

EVERYTHING HE KNOWS ABOUT

WEAPONS.

[LAUGHTER]

ISN'T THAT COOL?

Reporter: MOST OF THE

"TOP SHOT" CONTESTANTS HAD

EXTENSIVE WEAPONS TRAINING

WITH THE MILITARY OR LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

Reporter: HOW DID YOU

MEET THESE GUYS?

IT IS PRETTY CRAZY.

LOOKING BACK, IT IS GOD'S

FAVOR.

EVEN IF GOD DIDN'T SUPER

NATURALLY CURVE A BULLET

INTO THE TARGET, HE GAVE ME

MY ABILITY.

THERE IS A LOT OF PRESSURE

ON "TOP SHOT" SHOOTING.

YOU DON'T SEE THE 200 PEOPLE

THAT MAKE IT HAPPEN BEHIND

THE CAMERAS.

AND KNOWING HEY, WHEN YOU

CAN'T THROW A ROCK STRAIGHT,

THREE MILLION PEOPLE ARE

GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU ON

TV.

A LOT OF GUYS CRUMBLE UNDER

THAT PRESSURE.

ME, I WAS JUST THERE TO HAVE

FUN.

I WAS JUST THERE, TRUSTING

GOD TO EITHER HELP ME DO

GOOD, OR IF HE IS DONE WITH

ME, I'M CONTENT.

Reporter: HITTING THE

TARGET WASN'T THE HARDEST

PART FOR DUSTIN.

THE HARDEST PART WAS

SPENDING THAT MUCH TIME AWAY

FROM MY FAMILY WITHOUT ANY

CONTACT.

IT WAS A LONG SIX WEEKS,

HAVING TO DEAL WITH THE BOYS

AND ASKING QUESTIONS, WHERE

DADDY IS, AND STILL NOT ABLE

TO TALK ABOUT IT TOO MUCH,

ESPECIALLY FOR THE FIRST

COUPLE OF WEEKS BECAUSE IT

HASN'T BEEN ANNOUNCED.

Reporter: WHAT WAS YOUR

FAVORITE COURSE CHALLENGE?

THE 1022s.

I WAS SUPPOSED TO CUT Q-TIPS

IN HALF WITH IT, SEWN AND

SO I DID SO.

I HIT A GOLF BALL AT

100 YARDS WITH IT, AND

NOBODY ELSE COULD COME

CLOSE.

Reporter: DUSTIN

FINISHED THE FINAL CHALLENGE

IN JUST TWO MINUTES, TAKING

THE "TOP SHOT" CROWN.

WERE YOU SURPRISED?

I WAS VERY SURPRISED HOW

I PERFORMED AND MEASURED UP

TO ALL OF THESE PROFESSIONAL

SHOOTERS.

Reporter: I COULDN'T

HELP BUT ASK DUSTIN TO GIVE

ME A FEW SHOOTING TIPS AT

HIS RANGE.

OH, YEAH.

YOU DO.

I GOT IT.

AND THAT'S A SMALL

TARGET, TOO.

Reporter: DUSTIN TOOK

HOME THE $100,000 GRAND

PRIZE FROM "TOP SHOT."

SOME OF THAT IS COMING BACK

HERE TO "CAMP HIS WAY" TO

TEACH KIDS ABOUT GOD'S

LOVE.

AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE, DUSTIN

IS GETTING LOTS OF

INVITATIONS TO TELL HIS

STORY AND HIS SKILLS.

HAVE THE NAVY SEALS COME

CALLING YET?

I WENT AND SHOT WITH THE

F.B.I. THE OTHER DAY, AND

THAT WAS FUN.

I GOT PERFECT CALLS ON ALL

OF THEIR COURSES.

GOD GIVES US TALENTS AND

GIFTS AND ABILITIES ALL FOR

A REASON.

IT IS AMAZING THAT GOD CAN

USE SOMETHING AS SILLY AS

SHOOTING TO BRING GLORY TO

HIS NAME.

IT IS PRETTY NEAT.

Terry: PRETTY NEAT,

INDEED.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE

INFORMATION ON THE PROGRAM,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON

TO CBN.COM.

WE'LL HAVE THE INFORMATION

THERE.

WHAT A GREAT GUY.

TALK ABOUT USING HIS

POSITION FOR THE LORD.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

Gordon: IT'S ONE OF

THOSE WHERE GOD IS OPENING A

DOOR THAT JUST A WONDERFUL.

ALL RIGHT.

COMING UP, TWO SUPER NATURAL

RESCUES FROM ONE CAR WRECK.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT WAS JUST A BURST

OF WHITE LIGHT.

HE SEEMED TO JUST EMERGE

THROUGH THE DOOR.

AND HE JUST KIND OF FLOATED

OUT ON THE GROUND.

Gordon: FOUR EYE

WITNESSES SEE ANGELS, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

INVESTIGATION OF THE I.R.S.

NOW INCLUDES LOOKING INTO

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF LOIS

LERNER'S E-MAILS.

THE TAX AGENCY SAYS HER

E-MAILS WERE LOST IN A HARD

DRIVE CRASH.

LERNER IS A KEY FIGURE IN

THE SCANDAL OF THE I.R.S.

TARGETING OF THE TEA PARTY

AND OTHER CONSERVATIVE

TROOPS.

THE DENING TOL DEATH TOLL

IS NOW ABOVE 40 AFTER A

POWERFUL TYPHOON HIT PARTS

OF THE PHILIPPINES.

IT BROUGHT WIND OF UP TO

100 MILES PER HOUR AND LEFT

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE STILL

WITHOUT POWER.

Terry: ON MARCH 25,

2009, ON HIGHWAY 6, NEAR

WACO, TEXAS, TWO CARS

CRASHED INTO EACH OTHER

HEAD-ON.

EYE WITNESSES AT THE SCENE

SAW A FIERY CRASH AND ALSO A

DIVINE RESCUE AT THE HANDS

OF ANGELS.

9-1-1, WHAT'S YOUR

EMERGENCY?

THERE HAS BEEN A REALLY

SERIOUS CAR ACCIDENT.

WE HAVE A VEHICLE THAT IS

UPSIDE DOWN AND ON FIRE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE TRAPPED,

AND WE NEED THE JAWS OF

LIFE.

WE NEED HELP NOW.

Reporter: FOUR LIVES

INTERSECTED ON HIGHWAY 6 IN

CRAWFORD, TEXAS, THAT DAY.

SHERRY AND CODY, LISA, AND

ANTHONY ALL MET IN THE MIDST

OF TRAGEDY.

ALL SAY THEY HAD A

SUPERNATURAL ENCOUNTER ON

THAT RAIN-SLICKED ROAD THAT

CHANGED THEIR LIVES

FOREVER.

IT HAD BEEN RAINING ALL

THAT DAY AND I LOST

CONTROL.

Reporter: LISA'S S.U.V.

SLID INTO THE PATH OF

ANTHONY'S ONCOMING CAR.

I REMEMBER SEEING THE CAR

COME THROUGH MY WINDSHIELD,

AND THAT'S IT.

I BLACKED OUT.

I REMEMBER WAKING UP.

Reporter: THE IMPACT

FLIPPED LISA'S S.U.V.

MULTIPLE TIMES, CRUSHING

ANTHONY'S CAR.

BOTH DRIVERS WERE TRAPPED.

MY FEET WERE ON FIRE.

THE CAR WAS FILLING UP WITH

SMOKE.

THERE WAS FIRE COMING IN

THROUGH MY LEFT DOOR.

AND IT BURNED MY ARM AND MY

LEG.

I DIDN'T FEEL NO PAIN OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT, BUT I

KNEW I WASN'T GOING TO DIE

THIS WAY.

THE STEERING WHEEL WAS STUCK

IN MY CHEST AND I COULDN'T

MOVE.

Reporter: ANTHONY

BLACKED OUT A SECOND TIME.

LISA BEGAN TO PRAY.

I JUST REMEMBER SAYING,

GOD HELP ME.

IT SEEMED LIKE WHEN I HAD

THAT PEACE COME OVER ME,

THAT EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO

BE OKAY, IS WHEN SHERRY

SHOWED UP.

Reporter: SHE REAND

SHERRY AND CODY AW SAW THE

WRECKED VEHICLES AND THEY

RUSHED TO HELP.

AND SHE CALLED 9-1-1.

I COULD FEEL THE GIFT OF

FAITH INSIDE MY CHEST THAT

NOBODY IS GOING TO DIE HERE

TODAY.

I'M NOT GOING TO WATCH

ANYBODY DIE.

GOD IS GOING TO SHOWP.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

RAN OVER TO LISA'S BURNING

S.U.V.

CODY CLIMBED INSIDE TO TRY

TO GRAB LISA.

GOD GAVE ME THE COURAGE

RIGHT THERE BECAUSE I TOLD

GOD, I DIDN'T WANT TO DIE, I

DIDN'T WANT TO BURN UP.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW, I'M

IN THE CAR.

PEESHES I

I WAS UPSIDE DOWN, AND

THE SEAT BELT, I KEPT TRYING

TO RELEASE IT, BUT IT WON'T

RELEASE.

I HANDED HER THE KNIFE,

AND SHE CUT THE SEAT BELT.

THE NEXT THING I REALIZED

WAS SHE AND I WEREN'T COMING

OUT OF THE VEHICLE.

THE ROOF HAD BEEN CRUSHED.

AND THERE WASNIT THERE WAS

NOT MUCH ROOM.

THERE WAS MAYBE LESS THAN

EIGHT INCHES FOR HER TO GET

THROUGH.

Reporter: IN A SPLIT

SECOND, THE IMPOSSIBLE

SITUATION TURNED INTO A

DIVINE RESCUE.

WHEN WE REACHED OUT AND

GRABBED EACH OTHER'S HANDS,

THERE WAS ANOTHER SET OF

HANDS THAT GRABBED OUR

HANDS.

AS I GRABBED CODY'S

HANDS, I SAW A SET OF WHITE

HANDS AROUND HIS.

AS HE STARTED PULLING ME

THROUGH, IT WAS A BURST OF

WHITE LIGHT.

BEFORE I KNEW IT, WE WERE

BOTH OUTSIDE THE VEHICLE.

Reporter: SHERRY, WHO

WAS STANDING NEXT TO THE

S.U.V., WITNESSED THE WHOLE

THING.

GOD SENT AN ANGEL TO PULL

THEM OUT OF THAT CAR.

I SAW A BRIGHT, WHITE LIGHT

AND I SAW THESE HANDS REACH

PAST ME, WHERE THERE WAS NO

ROOMMENROOM.

AND THEY GRABBED AHOLD OF

CODY'S HANDS AND LISA'S

HANDS, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN

IT WAS LIKE, BOOM, THEY WERE

ON THE GRASS NEXT TO ME.

Reporter: BUT THE WORST

WAS FAR FROM OVER.

A FEW FEET AWAY, ANTHONY LAY

UNCONSCIOUS, WITH NO WAY TO

ESCAPE THE FIRE CONSUMING

HIS CAR.

THERE WAS THIS HUGE

EXPLOSION, AND THE FLAMES

COMPLETELY ROLLED OVER THE

CAR AND ANTHONY, JUST

CONSUMED IT IN THE BLACK,

ROLLING FLAMES.

I JUST SCREAMED.

I SAID, GOD, SEND YOUR

ANGELS NOW.

Reporter: AT THAT

MOMENT, ANOTHER EYE WITNESS

SAW A SECOND MIRACLE

UNFOLD.

I WAS JUST CRYING OUT,

GOD, YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

YOU'VE GOT TO HELP THIS

MAN.

AND HE SEEMED TO JUST EMERGE

THROUGH THE DOOR, AND HE

JUST KIND OF FLOATED OUT ON

THE GROUND.

SO I BELIEVE GOD SENT

SUPERNATURAL ANGELS HERE TO

HELP HIM GET OUT OF THAT

VEHICLE.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

ANTHONY LOST CONSCIOUSNESS°

NESS DURING THE ACCIDENT, HE

SAID THERE IS NO DOUBT WHO

RESCUED HIM FROM THE CRASH.

IT WAS DEFINITELY GOD.

IT WAS A MIRACLE.

I CAN ONLY SAY THAT THE

LORD SENT AN ANGEL AND

REMOVED LISA FROM THE CAR

BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT GOING TO

COME OUT OF THAT CAR.

AND HE ALSO SENT AN ANGEL

AND PULLED ANTHONY OUT OF

HIS CAR BECAUSE HE WAS NOT

COMING OUT OF THAT CAR,

EITHER.

Reporter: SOON AFTER,

FIREFIGHTERS ARRIVED TO

DOUSE THE FLAMES.

GOD HAD ALREADY PULLED

EVERYBODY OUT OF THE

VEHICLES AND EVERYBODY WAS

ON THE GROUND.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN WE LOOK

OVER, AND EVERYBODY LOOKS,

AND THERE IS THIS HUGE

RAINBOW COMPLETELY

ENCOMPASSING THE ENTIRE

SCENE.

Reporter: LISA AND

ANTHONY WERE TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL WITH SERIOUS

INJURIES, INCLUDING BROKEN

BONES AND SEVERE BURNS.

I WENT THROUGH EIGHT

MONTHS OF REHAB, AND I'M

ABLE TO WALK.

RECOVERY HAS BEEN GREAT.

MY BURNS HAVE HEALED WITH NO

PROBLEMS.

NO SKIN GRAFTS.

THAT WAS ANOTHER MIRACLE

THAT HAPPENED.

IT TOOK ME, I BELIEVE

OVER A YEAR, AND I WAS GOING

BETWEEN A WALKER TO

CRUTCHES, AND FROM CRUTCHES

TO A CANE.

I FEEL GOOD TO BE WALKING

WITH A CANE, BUT I STILL

WANT TO WALK WITHOUT ONE.

Reporter: TWO YEARS

LATER, THE MIRACLE ON

HIGHWAY 6 REMAINS ETCHED IN

THEIR MINDS.

A DAY THAT DESPERATE PRAYERS

WERE ANSWERED, PRECIOUS

LIVES WERE SAVED, AND GOD

ORCHESTRATED A HEROIC

RESCUE.

GOD LOVES US.

WE'RE BEING COVERED AND

PROTECTED WITH THE BLOOD OF

JESUS.

AND THAT'S WHAT IT WAS.

THE ANGEL OF DEATH -- OR

WHATEVER, IT PASSED OVER.

HE DIDN'T HAVE ANY RIGHT.

HE HAD NO AUTHORITY TO TAKE

ANYBODY'S LIFE THAT DAY

BECAUSE JESUS WAS THERE.

GOD ANSWERS THE FERVENT,

HEART-FELT CRY, OUR FERVENT,

HEART-FELT PRAYERS.

GOD ANSWERS THOSE AND HE

DELIVERS US.

Terry: THE FERVENT

PRAYERS OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN

AVAILOUS MUCH.

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET INTO

THE WORD.

THERE ARE SOME PROMISES

THERE FOR YOU.

AS YOU WATCH THIS STORY

TODAY, I HOPE YOUR FAITH HAS

BEEN BUILT.

THAT THE SAME GOD WHO HEARD

THE CRY IN THE MOMENT OF

THAT ACCIDENT FOR THESE

PEOPLE, HEARS YOUR CRY TODAY

AND WANTS TO SPEAK AND MOVE

IN THE MIDST OF YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU, BUT

FIRST HERE ARE SOME ANSWERS

TO PRAY TO ENCOURAGE YOU IN

YOUR FAITH.

GORDON, SINCE BIRTH, PAMELA,

FROM WARSAW, MISSOURI, HAD

SUFFERED WITH SEVERE

ABDOMINAL PAIN EVERY DAY OF

HER LIFE.

AT TIMES DOCTORS DIDN'T

THINK SHE WOULD SURVIVE

BECAUSE SHE COULDN'T EAT.

ON OCCASION THE PAIN WAS SO

BAD SHE WAS PASS OUT.

SHE SAW MANY DOCTORS AND TEA

COUL THEY COULD NOT

IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, GORDON,

YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, "YOU'VE GOT A VERY

PAINFUL CONDITION IN YOUR

INTESTINES.

YOU'VE BEEN CRYING OUT TO

GOD FOR YEARS, AND GOD HAS

HEARD YOUR PRAYER."

PAMELA CLAIMED THAT AND SHE

HAS NOT BEEN SICK SINCE.

SHE IS PRAISING GOD.

Gordon: HERE IS KAREN

FROM LAWRENCEVILLE,

GEORGIA.

SHE COULDN'T SWALLOW FOOD

MUCH AND SHE HAD A METALLIC

TASTE IN HER MOUTH.

SHE WAS GIVEN A PRESCRIPTION

AND WENT ON A RESTRICTED

DIET.

SHE SUFFERED FOR MORE THAN

THREE YEARS.

THEN ONE DAY WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB," TERRY, YOU HAD A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOUR ESOPHAGUS AND MOUTH ARE

INVOLVED, AND YOU HAVE A

METALLIC TASTE IN YOUR

MOUTH.

GOD IS HEALING YOU FROM

THAT.

KAREN CLAIMED IT, AND THE

METALLIC TASTE LEFT HER

MOUTH.

SHE STOPPED TAKING HER

MEDICINE AND NOW SHE EATS

WHATEVER FOOD SHE WANTS, AND

SHE IS PRAISING GOD.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE LOVES US ALL.

WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS BE

OUR VERY PRESENT HELP IN

TIME OF NEED.

SO WHAT'S YOUR NEED?

AND IS GOD BIG ENOUGH TO

TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEED?

YOU KNOW, IT MAY NOT BE AS

SEVERE AS YOU'RE TRAPPED IN

A CAR WITH A STEERING WHEEL

CRUSHING YOUR CHEST, AND YOU

NEED TO SOMEHOW BE

SUPERNATURALLY TRANSPORTED

OUT OF THAT CAR.

BUT WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

GOD IS ABLE.

ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS HAVE

FAITH IN HIM.

AND THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.

HE SAID IT IS THE KEY TO

MIRACLES, HAVE FAITH IN

GOD.

AND THEN HE ADDED, WHEN YOU

PRAY, BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE

ALREADY RECEIVED, AND YOU

WILL HAVE IT.

SO WHEN WERE YOUR NEEDS

MET?

THEY WERE MET 2,000 YEARS

AGO ON A CROSS, JUST OUTSIDE

JERUSALEM.

AND BY HIS STRIPES, YOU WERE

HEALED.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE

ALREADY RECEIVED, AND YOU

WILL HAVE IT.

NOW, I CALL FAITH AN

ACTION.

IT'S AN ACT.

IT'S A WONDERFUL VERB.

SO ACT YOUR FAITH.

AND IN AN ACT OF FAITH,

PLACE YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR

FINANCES, LAY HANDS ON YOUR

POCKETBOOK, ON YOUR

CHECKBOOK, ON YOUR WALLET,

AND LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

IF IT'S FOR YOUR FAMILY, LAY

HANDS ON A PICTURE OF THEM.

LET'S BELIEVE GOD.

AND HE SAYS, IF TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT

SHALL BE DONE.

THOSE ARE HIS WORDS.

WE CAN RELY ON THEM.

WE CAN TRUST THEM.

SO, PLACE A HAND ON IT.

LET'S BELIEVE AND LET GOD DO

ALL OF THE REST.

PRAY WITH US.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE ACTING

THEIR FAITH AND LAYING A

HAND ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING, WE

COME INTO AGREEMENT WITH

THEM NOW.

AND WE SAY TO THEM NOW, OUT

LOUD -- TOGETHER WE SAY OUT

LOUD, BE HEALED AND BE MADE

WHOLE IN JESUS' NAME.

BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS

CHRIST, I WAS HEALED AND I

AM HEALED NOW.

I RECEIVE IT.

I BELIEVE IT.

AND I DECLARE IT.

OVER MY BODY NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

BEEN SUFFERING WITH SEVERE

MIGRAINES, IT IS AROUND YOUR

SINUS AREA, BUT PARTICULARLY

A PROBLEM AROUND YOUR RIGHT

EYE AND INTO THE TEMPLE.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU NOW.

HE IS TAKING IT AWAY.

YOU JUST FELT LIKE A COOL

BREATH GO THROUGH YOUR

HEAD.

IT IS JUST AMAZING THAT IT

IS GONE.

AND GOD JUST WANTS TO

REASSURE YOU IT'S NEVER

COMING BACK.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE IN

FEAR ANY LONGER.

YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED.

YOU HAVE BEEN RESTORED NOW.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU'VE GOT A

BLOOD CONDITION, WHERE YOU

HAVE A LOW

WHITE CELL

COUNT.

THE DOCTORS

ARE VERY

CONCERNED.

IT IS

LEADING TO ALL KINDS

OF OTHER

INFECTIONS BECAUSE

YOUR BODY CAN'T DEFEND

ITSELF.

BUT GOD IS ABLE, AND HE IS

ABLE TO HEAL YOU NOW IN

JESUS FAME.

JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

WITH A SMALL GOITER ON YOUR

THYROID, AND GOD IS HEALING

THAT FOR YOU NOW.

IT IS LOSING SIZE AND IT

WILL GO AWAY.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HEARD

TERRY TALK ABOUT THE

THYROID, AND YOU SAID,

PLEASE SAY PARATHYROID.

AND GOD WANTS TO BE VERY

SPECIFIC WITH YOU, THAT HE

IS HEALING YOUR

PARATHYROID.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

NORMAL.

YOUR BODY METABOLISM IS

GOING TO BE NORMAL.

WHAT YOU NEED FOR DAY-TO-DAY

LIVING IS GOING TO BE

SUPPLIED FOR YOU NOW.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HEARD THAT REPORT

ON THE ESOPHAGUS, AND YOU'RE

HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH

YOUR ESOPHAGUS.

GOD IS HEALING THAT ACID

REFLUX AND HEALING THE

DAMAGED TISSUE, AND HE IS

HEALING THAT WHOLE CONDITION

FOR YOU.

JUST RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU WERE IN A CAR

ACCIDENT AND YOU RECEIVED A

BLOW TO YOUR ABDOMEN.

AND THERE IS LINGERING

DAMAGE, I THINK SPECIFICALLY

TO THE LIVER.

AND GOD IS ABLE.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE

HE IS ABLE TO GIVE LIFE

WHERE THERE IS NO LIFE.

AND SO HE IS SPEAKING LIFE

TO YOU NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

BE HEALED.

Terry: AND SOMEONE, YOU

HAVE A DETERIORATING RIGHT

HIPBONE, AND IT IS ALMOST

LIKE PERV PERFORATED, AND

GOD IS CREATIVELY RESTORING

THAT FOR YOU, AND THE PAIN

IS GOING TO BE GONE, AND

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WALK

CLEARLY AGAIN.

Gordon: WE CLAIM THIS

WORD FROM PSALMS: "WE BLESS

THE LORD, O MY SOUL, AND WE

DO NOT FORGET ALL OF OUR

BENEFITS BECAUSE YOU FORGIVE

ALL OF OUR INIQUITY, ALL OF

IT IS GONE, AND YOU HEAL ALL

OF OUR DISEASES.

ALL OF THEM ARE HEALED BY

YOU."

WE THANK YOU FOR IT, JESUS.

WHEN WE RECEIVE YOU, WE

RECEIVE ALL THAT WE NEED.

BE WITH US NOW FOR WE ASK IT

IN YOUR NAME.

AMEN.

HUNDREDS OF OTHERS IN HER

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: ON LONG

HIGHWAY BETWEEN SAN ANTONIO

AND EL PASO, TEXAS, RACHEL

HERNANDEZ WORKS AS A

JANITORIAL SUPERVISOR AT A

HIGHWAY REST STOP.

SHE GETS UP AT 4:00 EVERY

MORNING TO GO TO WORK, JUST

SO SHE CAN PROVIDE FOR HER

FAMILY.

IT IS KIND OF HARD

SOMETIMES TO GET UP AND JUST

WALK, OR JUST GET UP AND TRY

AND START YOUR DAY.

IT IS VERY HARD TO BE ABLE

TO PICK UP GROCERIES, TO PAY

THE LIGHT BILL, FIX MY CAR

IF IT BREAKS DOWN.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO

START.

I HAVE TO BE THERE.

AND I HAVE TO BE THE

STRONGEST ONE.

Reporter: RACHEL

SUPPORTS A FAMILY OF EIGHT,

WHO ALL LIVE IN A THREE

BEDROOM MOBILE HOME.

WORK.

I HAVE ALWAYS WORKED.

NOW I CAN'T WORK.

NOT ALONE.

FAMILIES THAT LIVE IN THIS

AREA.

GAVE OUT A BOX OF FOOD TO

SOMEBODY WHO REALLY NEEDED

IT.

IT'S NOT JUST ME.

IT'S THEM, TOO.

HER COMMUNITY.

SHE HAS BEEN HERE 38 YEARS.

SHE HAS SHARED WHAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

GIVEN COWBOY FELLOWSHIP, AND

THEY HAVE GIVEN TO RACHEL,

AND RACHEL NOW ENSURES THAT

EVERYONE IN THIS AREA

RECEIVES THE SAME BLESSING.

WE HAVE TIME FOR SOME CHAT

QUESTIONS.

Terry: THIS IS KELLY

WHO SAYS, "FOR YEARS MY

NIECE HAS BEEN STRUGGLING

WITH SEVERAL ATTEMPTS OF

SUICIDE AND CUTTING

HERSELF.

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE

TO BE SO LOST THAT THEY

CAN'T GET BACK TO GOD?

WHAT CAN I TELL HER TO HELP

HER GET BACK TO GOD?"

Gordon: KELLY, NUMBER

ONE, I WOULD BE PRAYING FOR

HER EARNESTLY AND WATCHING

FOR THE CHANGE.

CAN SOMEBODY BE SO LOST THAT

THEY CAN'T GET BACK TO GOD?

NO.

THE PSALMIST SAID: "I MADE

MY BED IN HELL, AND BEHOLD

YOU WERE THERE."

GOD IS ABLE TO REACH

ANYONE.

THE PRODIGAL, HE WENT OFF TO

A FAR COUNTRY.

WHAT IS IT THAT TURNED THE

PRODIGAL?

HERE HE IS, HE HAS WASTED

THE INHERITANCE THAT HIS DAD

HAS GIVEN HIM.

HE HAS WASTED IT, AND NOW HE

IS FEEDING PIGS.

WHAT CAUSED HIM TO FINALLY

WAKE UP?

THE BIBLE SAYS HE CAME TO

HIMSELF WHEN HE STARTED

LOOKING AT THE FOOD THE PIGS

WERE EATING AND WAS

ENVIOUS.

SO THAT -- PRAY THAT THERE

WOULD BE THAT KIND OF TURN,

THAT THEY WOULD ACTUALLY

COME TO THEMSELVES AND

REALIZE HOW MUCH BETTER IT

IS TO BE WITH GOD THAN TO BE

AWAY FROM HIM.

Terry: THIS IS CHERYL

WHO WANTS TO KNOW, "MY

DAUGHTER GAVE HER LIFE TO

CHRIST AT A YOUNG AGE, AND

NOW SHE IS AN ADULT AND HAS

SERIOUS DOUBTS ABOUT THE

BIBLE AND GOD.

TECHNICALLY, IS SHE STILL

SAVED?"

Gordon: CHERYL, I WOULD

SAY ABSOLUTELY.

ALL WHO CALL ON THE NAME OF

THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.

DO CHRISTIANS GO THROUGH

DOUBTS?

YEAH.

YEAH.

AND GOD WANTS TO ANSWER

THOSE.

SO DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE

QUESTIONS.

DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE HARD

QUESTIONS.

HE DOESN'T WANT US TO HAVE

BLIND FAITH.

THE REASON HE HAS GIVEN US A

BRAIN IS SO THAT WE CAN USE

IT.

SO FIND THE QUESTIONS THAT

SHE'S ASKING AND THEN DO

SOME RESEARCH.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF

CHRISTIAN -- WE CALL THEM

APOLOGETICS.

THERE ARE SO MANY RESOURCES

AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET.

WE LOVE TO ANSWER WHATEVER

QUESTIONS SHE'S GOT.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JESUS FROM

MATTHEW 28: "THOUGH I AM

WITH YOU ALWAYS, EVEN TO THE

END OF THE AGE."
