The 700 Club - July 18, 2014

An advertisement for a dancing job led Teresa into the trap that is the sex industry. Plus, years of pain and rejection ushered Jimmy into a life of drug abuse. Read Transcript


I LOVE THE ACTION OF

GETTING IN THERE.

Gordon: HOW DO YOU

BECOME A HOLLYWOOD

STUNTMAN?

START YOUNG.

I WOULD JUMP OFF MY

GRANDFATHER'S FRONT PORCH.IT WAS SPECTACULAR.

Gordon: PLUS...

HOW COULD I REFUSE IT?

Gordon: ...HOW ONE

STRIPPER ESCAPES THE NIGHT

LIFE.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE

ME, AND HE DID.

Gordon: AND THEN A

MOTHER AND HER SON FACE A

KILLER TORNADO AT A FAST

FOOD RESTAURANT.

AND THERE WAS A SOUND,

AND IT SOUNDED LIKE A

CANNON.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES, LET

GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWSDESK.

AMERICAN FLIGHTS ARE

AVOIDING UKRAINIAN AIR SPACE

AFTER A MALAYSIAN AIRLINER

CRASHED ON THURSDAY.

295 PEOPLE WERE ON BOARD,

INCLUDING SOME AMERICANS.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY ON

THE CRASH INVESTIGATION.

Reporter: ALONG THE

FLIGHT PATH OF MALAYSIA

AIRLINES FLIGHT 17,

PASSPORTS, CLOTHING, AND

HUMAN BODIES, SOME

PASSENGERS STILL FOUND

STRAPPED INTO THEIR

STREETS.

RESCUE WORKERS, INCLUDING

POLICE OFFICERS AND LOCAL

COAL MINERS, SIFT THROUGH

THE DEBRIS IN EASTERN

UKRAINE.

ALL LOOKING FOR CLUES ON

WHAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THE

CRASH.

BUT WORLD LEADERS SAY THE

CAUSE IS CLEAR.

NOT AN ACCIDENT.

BLOWN OUT OF THE SKY.

Reporter: U.S.

INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS SAY

THE BOEING 777 WAS SHOT DOWN

BY A SURFACE-TO-AIR MISSILE,

AS IT FLEW FROM AMSTERDAM TO

KUALA LUMPUR.

THE PILOT WAS FORCED TO FLY

A MORE NORTHERNLY ROUTE

BECAUSE OF THUNDERSTORMS.

AND THAT TOOK THE PLANE AND

ALL 295 PASSENGERS ON A PATH

OVER TERRITORY OCCUPIED BY

RUSSIAN SEPARATISTS.

WITNESSES DESCRIBED LOUD

EXPLOSIONS, AND ONE VILLAGER

SAID THERE WAS FIGHTING AND

HE HEARD SHOOTING IN THE

SKY.

Reporter: F.B.I.

INVESTIGATORS ARE ARE

HEADING TO THE CRASH SITE.

AND THEY FOUND MOST OF THE

RECORDING ARTISTS.

THE CONCERN NOW, THEY'LL

TURN IT OVER TO THE

RUSSIANS.

Reporter: THAT MAY LEAD

TO A BIAS INVESTIGATION,

THAT'S BECAUSE THE RUSSIANS

ARE ARE ACCUSED OF SUPPLYING

REBELS WITH ARMS.

ARE THE REBELS RESPONSIBLE

FOR THE SHOOTDOWN?

REBELS DENY RESPONSIBILITY.

BUT THE UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT

SAYS IT INTERCEPTED A PHONE

CALL, IN WHICH SEPARATISTS

AT THE CRASH SCENE

REPORTEDLY TOLD RUSSIAN

MILITARY INTELLIGENCE,

QUOTE,"WE HAVE SHOT DOWN A

PLANE."

AN INTERNATIONAL TEAM

MUST HAVE FULL ACCESS TO THE

CRASH SITE.

AND NO ONE SHOULD INTERFERE

WITH THE AREA OR MOVE ANY

DEBRIS, INCLUDING THE BLACK

BOX.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

BACK IN AMSTERDAM, AT LEAST

ONE COUPLE WAS THANKFUL THEY

DIDN'T BOARD MALAYSIA FLIGHT

17.

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE ON

THAT FLIGHT.

ON OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING WAS

WATCHING OVER US NOT TO GET

ON THAT FLIGHT.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: ISRAEL IS

STRESSING ITS GROUND

OFFENSIVE INTO GAZA.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE BORDER

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND GAZA.

Reporter: ISRAELI TANKS

AND FOOT SOLDIERS CROSSED

THE BORDER FENCE INTO GAZA

LATE THURSDAY EVENING, AS

SEEN IN THIS FOOTAGE.

THE GROUND OPERATION BEGAN

SEVERAL HOURS AGO, AND

EXCEPT FOR THE OCCASIONAL

FLARE, GAZA CITY IS MARKED

IN TOTAL DARKNESS.

FROM MIDNIGHT TO MID-MORNING

ON FRIDAY, ISRAEL ATTACKED

MORE THAN 100 TERROR TARGETS

THROUGHOUT THE GAZA STRIP.

EXPLOSIONS ARE STILL BEING

HEARD FROM GAZA CITY.

AS THE I.D.F. CONTINUES THE

NEXT STAGE IN "OPERATION

PROTECTIVE EDGE, EDGE," TO

STOP HAMAS.

THEY HAVE TOLD PEOPLE TO

LEAVE THEIR HOMES IN AREAS

NEAR THE PLACES OF BOMBING.

ISRAEL SAYS THE GOAL OF THE

EXTENDED OPERATION IS TO

UNCOVER TERROR TUNNELS,

DESTROY THE HAMAS

INFRASTRUCTURE, AND RETURN

QUIETLY TO SOUTHERN ISRAELI

COMMUNITIES.

THE GOAL REMAINS THE

SAME: THE GOAL IS TO PROTECT

OUR PEOPLE.

OVER THE LAST 10 DAYS, WE'VE

HAD SOME 1500 ROCKETS FIRED

BY THE TERRORISTS IN GAZA

AGAINST OUR PEOPLE.

WE'VE HAD BARAGE AFTER

BARAGE ON OUR CITIES.

AND WE ARE TAKING ACTION, AS

I THINK ANY DEMOCRATIC

GOVERNMENT WOULD DO, TO

PROTECT OUR PEOPLE.

Reporter: FRIDAY

MORNING HAMAS CONTINUED TO

FIRE ROCKETS AT SOUTHERN

ISRAELI COMMUNITIES, SENDING

ISRAELIS TO THEIR SHELTERS.

HAMAS HAVE TO BE ON THE

RUN.

THEY CANNOT BE AN AUTHORITY

THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

GAZA STRIP AND EXPECT TO

CARRY OUT TERRORIST ATTACKS

AGAINST USMENT THEY HAVE TO

REALIZE THERE IS A PRICE TO

PAY WHEN YOU STAND BEHIND

AND ENGAGE IN TERRORISM.

Reporter: FOR NOW,

ISRAEL SEEMS TO HAVE LIMITED

BACKING FROM THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.

EVEN EGYPT BLAMED HAMAS FOR

THE GROUND INCURSION, SAYING

THAT HAMAS HAD REFUSED

ATTEMPTS AT A CEASE-FIRE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

THE ISRAELI-GAZA BORDER.

Efrem: HERE AT HOME, A

NEW MOVIE CALLED PERSECUTED

OPENS IN THEATERS TODAY.

IT IS ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY

OF CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION

HERE IN AMERICA.

WENDY GRIFFITH BRINGS US

THAT STORY IN THIS EDITION

OF "FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

NEWS."

THERE ARE THOSE WHO CLAIM

INTOLERANCE, THAT YOUR

CRUSADES MAY EVEN THREATEN

THE FREEDOM OF OTHERS.

FREEDOM IS FRAGILE AND

COSTLY, AND MUST CONSTANT BE

DEFENDED.

Wendy: DANIEL, WHAT

INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE

"PERSECUTED?"

I WOKE UP ONE MORNING,

AND IT WAS THERE, THE

GOVERNMENT WAS TRYING TO

TAKE CONTROL OF EVERYTHING.

INCLUDING THE VERY SOURCE IT

GAVE OUR COUNTRY ITS

FOUNDATION, WHICH IS

BIBLICAL TRUTH.

I CANNOT MAR DOWN THE

GOSPEL.

Wendy: JAMES REMAR

PLACE LEAD CHARACTER, EV

EVANGELIST JOHN LUTHER.

JOHN LUTHER BECOMES THE

MAJOR EVANGELIST AT THE

LEVEL OF A BILLY GRAHAM, AT

A TIME WHEN AMERICA BECOMES

THE UNWILLING RECIPIENT OF

THE GOSPEL.

Wendy: GRETCHEN CARLSON

AND I BOTH HAVE ROLES IN

"PERSECUTED."

SHE AS THE NEWS ANCHOR TO

QUESTIONS JOHN'S MOTIVES,

AND MYSELF WHO TALKS ABOUT

LUTHER'S CHECKERED PAST.

YOU HAVE A FAMOUS

EVANGELIST, JOHN LUTHER, WHO

IS FRAMED FOR MURDER BY A

MEMBER OF CONGRESS BECAUSE

HE IS STANDING IN THE WAY OF

A SWEEPING RELIGIOUS

REFORM.

IS THIS REALLY FANTASY, OR

IS THIS SOMETHING THAT YOU

COULD ACTUALLY ENVISION

HAPPENING IN AMERICA?

IT REALLY IS BEGINNING

BECAUSE WE ALLOW OURSELVES

TO BE SILENCED IN THE NAME

OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

Wendy: WENDY GRIFFITH,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THOSE ARE TODAYS

TOP STORIES FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.

PAPER

Gordon: DURING HIS

CAREER AS A HOLLYWOOD

STUNTMAN, JIMINEY BRUDON HAS

FLOWN THROUGH THE AIR LIKE A

BIRD AND HIT LIKE A SPEEDING

BULLET.

BUT THE MOST DANGEROUS STUNT

JIMMY EVERY PULLED CAME WHEN

THE CAMERAS WERE NOT

ROLLING.

Reporter: JIMMY HAS

BEEN DAZZLING AUDIENCES FOR

OVER 20 YEARS AS HOLLYWOOD'S

MOST DARING STUNTMAN.

HE HAS BEEN THE STUNT GUY

PERFORMING PRECISION DRIVING

AND FULL BODY FIRE BURNS IN

MOVIES LIKE " iROBOT,"

"FIREWALL," AND TV SHOWS

LIKE "THE "X" FILES," AND HE

JUST FINISHED STUNTS IN

"COURAGEOUS," ONE OF THE

HIGHEST GROSSING FILMS.

I LOVE THE ACTION AND

GETTING THE HEART RATE UP.

IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO DO

SOME STUNTS.

Reporter: I'M GOING TO

DO SOME STUNTS.

ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP ME

SAFE?

OH, ABSOLUTELY.

READY?

Reporter: ONE, TWO,

THREE.

OH, MY GOODNESS, ARE YOU ALL

RIGHT?

I'M OKAY.

Reporter: WHAT IS YOUR

FAVORITE STUNT OF ALL TIME

TO DO?

I JUST LIKE FALLING

THROUGH THE AIR.

I LOVE THAT FEELING OF

FLYING LIKE A BIRD.

YOU CAN'T BEAT IT.

Reporter: JIMMY GREW UP

IN TORONTO, ONTARIO, WITH

HIS GRANDPARENTS.

HE SUFFERED ABUSE AT THEIR

HANDS.

TO ESCAPE, JIMMY WOULD DREAM

ABOUT BECOMING A STUNTMAN.

THERE WAS JUST SOMETHING

ABOUT WATCHING THESE GUYS

JUMP AND CRASH CARS.

I WOULD JUMP OFF MY

GRANDFATHER'S FRONT PORCH.

IT WAS ABOUT SEVEN FEET

HIGH.

IT WAS SPECTACULAR.

Reporter: JIMMY STARTED

LIVING WITH HIS MOTHER WHEN

SHE FOUND OUT ABOUT THE

ABUSE.

BY THIS TIME, HE BECAME VERY

REBELLIOUS.

AT AGE 11, HE STARTED USING

DRUGS WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD

KIDS.

AT AGE 15, HE BECAME A DRUG

DEALER.

WHEN HIS MOTHER FOUND OUT,

SHE KICKED HIM OUT OF THE

HOUSE.

BASICALLY SHE SAID TO ME,

I DON'T LOVE YOU.

YOU CAN GET OUT.

THAT HURT BIG TIME.

Reporter: JIMMY STARTED

LIVING WITH THIS FRIENDS,

UNTIL HE WAS ABLE TO AFFORD

HIS OWN APARTMENT.

HE CONTINUED USING AND SELL

DRUGS.

I DID DRUGS AS IF I WAS

ON A SUICIDE MISSION.

BUT NOT EXTERNAL, WHERE YOU

SLICE YOUR WRISTS OR SHOOT

YOURSELF, NO.

INSIDE.

I WANTED MY HEART TO BLOW

UP.

YOU COULDN'T GET YOUR

BREATH.

YOU THOUGHT YOUR HEART WAS

GOING TO EXPLODE.

Reporter: AT AGE 24,

JIMMY MOVED TO VANCOUVER,

AND WITHIN THREE YEARS, HE

STARTED EARNING A LIVING AS

A PROFESSIONAL STUNTMAN.

JIMMY REMEMBERS THE FIRST

STUNT, WHERE HE HAD TO TAKE

A BULLET HIT TO THE BODY.

IT WAS SUCH A POWERFUL

POW.

AND THEN THE SQUIBB

EXPLODED, AND I LAUNCHED

MYSELF IN MID AIR.

Reporter: BUT AFTER THE

STUNTS WERE OVER, JIMMY

RETURNED TO HIS DRUG USE.

ALL THEY HE WAS LIVING HIS

DREAMS OF BEING A STUNTMAN,

HE KNEW SOMETHING WAS

MISSING.

WE'RE GETTING MORE

EXPERIENCE, AND WE'RE DOINGñ

IT.

IT LOOKS LIKE I'M GOING TO

BE DOING IT FOR A WHILE.

BUT DEEP IN SIDE THERE IS AN

EMPTINESS.

Reporter: JIMMY STARTED

TO QUESTION WHAT LIFE WAS

ALL ABOUT, INCLUDING WHO GOD

WAS ALL ABOUT, UNTIL A GUY

NAMED BILL TOLD HIM JESUS

WAS REAL AND CHALLENGED HIM

TO READ THE BOOK OF JOHN.

HE SAYS, YOU'RE LOOKING

FOR GOD, AND I KNOW HIM.

HERE IS MY ANSWER RIGHT

HERE.

Reporter: I SAID, OKAY,

MR. FERGUSON, I GIVE YOU MY

WORD I WILL READ THAT, AND

HE PUT IT IN MY HAND.

Reporter: HE BEGAN TO

READ THE BOOK OF JOHN.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS

LIFE, HE REALIZED THE

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF GOD.

AND THEN I READ THAT

JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE

CROSS FOR ME, AND HE WAS

BURIED.

I KNEW JESUS CHRIST WAS

GOD.

IT BLEW MY MIND.

I WAS SCARED.

I CLOSED THE BOOK.

I SAID, THIS IS CRAZY.

HOW CAN A BOOK HAVE THIS

KIND OF POWER?

Reporter: THE NEXT STEP

FOR JIMMY WAS BREAKING FREE

FROM HIS DRUG ADDICTION.

I SAID, I'VE BEEN A DRUG

ADDICT FOR 17 YEARS.

I NEED TO KNOW YOU'RE REAL,

REAL.

FOR ME, JIMMY, I NEED YOU TO

GET ME OFF DRUGS.

Reporter: GOD ANSWERED

JIMMY'S PRAYERS AS HE WAS

RIDING A MOTORCYCLE ONE

DAY.

I WAS A DRUG ADDICT FOR

17 YEARS, AND I HADN'T DONE

DRUGS FOR TWO DAYS.

I IMMEDIATELY PULLED OVER TO

THE SIDE AND WEPT LIKE A

BABY BECAUSE I KNEW THAT THE

LORD WAS REAL.

I SAID, WOW, LORD, I'LL

FOLLOW YOU.

I BOWED ME KNEE RIGHT BESIDE

MY BIKE AND GAVE MY HEART TO

THE LORD THAT DAY.

IT'S A LOVE THAT SURPASSES

ALL UNDERSTANDING.

I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT, BUT IT

IS.

I STILL GET CHOKED UP NOW,

16 YEARS LATER.

THE LORD TOUCHED MY HEART

AND I'VE NEVER BEEN THE

SAME.

Reporter: TODAY JIMMY

IS MARRIED WITH SEVEN

CHILDREN.

HE HAS HIS OWN FILM

PRODUCTION COMPANY CALLED

"GOLD FIRE FILMS."

GIVE YOUR LIFE TO

CHRIST.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU'VE BEEN

THROUGH IN LIFE, HOW FAR

GONE YOU THINK YOU'RE GONE,

HOW MANY BAD THINGS THAT

YOU'VE DONE EN YOUR LIFE --

IN YOUR LIFE, THERE IS

REDEMPTION.

Gordon: THERE IS

REDEMPTION, AND IT IS FOR

YOU, AND IT IS FREE.

BECAUSE REDEMPTION MEANS

JESUS PAID THE PRICE SO YOU

WOULDN'T HAVE TO.

HE PAID IT ALL, AND HE SAID,

IT'S FINISHED.

I'VE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT GOD

SENT ME TO EARTH TO DO.

I'VE ACCOMPLISHED IT.

AND WHAT WAS GOD'S WILL?

GOD'S WILL WAS HE LOVED THE

WORLD -- HE LOVED YOU -- SO

MUCH THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY

BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS.

THAT WHO SO FAR -- THAT'S

YOU -- WOULD BELIEVE AND

WOULDN'T PERISH, BUT WOULD

HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

JUST WHAT HAPPENED TO JIMMY

CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

DON'T FOR A MINUTE THINK

YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR OR IT'S

TOO LATE OR YOU'VE SAID TOO

MANY BAD THINGS ABOUT GOD.

UNDERSTAND HE STILL LOVES

YOU.

UNDERSTAND IT.

AND UNDERSTAND IT IN A WAY

THAT IS REAL.

WHERE HE CAN TOUCH YOUR

HEART, JUST AS HE TOUCHED

JIMMY'S.

NOW, JIMMY HAD A WONDERFUL

PRAYER.

GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL, IF THIS

IS ALL TRUE, THEN I NEED

YOU.

AND I NEED TO GET OFF OF

DRUGS.

AND HERE HE WAS, 17 YEARS,

AND HE PRAYED THAT PRAYER.

AND THEN TWO WEEKS LATER HE

IS RIDING HIS MOTORCYCLE,

AND HE REALIZED, I'VE GONE

TWO WEEKS AND I HAVEN'T

USED.

AND THAT STOPPED HIM.

AND THAT'S WHEN HE STOPPED

AND BOWED HIS KNEE AND SAID,

JESUS, I WANT TO FOLLOW

YOU.

AND THEN HE HAD AN

EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF

YOU DO THE SAME THING.

GOD WANTS TO SHOW UP FOR

YOU.

HE WANTS TO BE YOUR SAVIOR.

THAT'S WHY JESUS DIED.

HE LOVES YOU.

AND HE WANTS TO CHANGE YOU.

HE WANTS TO TURN YOU

AROUND.

HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU A HOPE

AND A FUTURE.

NOW, IF THIS IS FOR YOU, LET

TODAY BE THE DAY.

WHY GO ANOTHER DAY WITHOUT

HIM.

LET TODAY BE THE DAY WHERE

YOU MEET HIM.

WHERE YOU EXPERIENCE HIM.

WHERE YOU GET THAT SAME

TOUCH IN YOUR HEART THAT

JIMMY GOT.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO?

YOU JUST HAVE TO ASK.

YOU JUST HAVE TO PRAY.

BOW YOUR HEAD.

IF YOU WANT TO BE LIKE

JIMMY, BOW YOUR KNEE.

AND SAY, GOD, I NEED YOU.

AND IF YOU'RE REAL, WILL YOU

COME TO ME RIGHT NOW.

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART AND YOU

REALLY MEAN IT, HE'LL COME.

HE'LL MAKE YOU NEW AGAIN.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, BOW

YOUR HEAD.

WE'LL PRAY, AND GOD WILL DO

ALL OF THE REST.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND I

WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU'RE

REAL.

I WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU'RE

THERE, AND THAT YOU CAN

CHANGE ME, AND THAT YOU CAN

FORGIVE ME.

AND I WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU

LOVE ME.

SO, JESUS, I BOW MY HEAD.

I BOW MY KNEE.

AND I ASK THAT YOU COME IN.

I ASK THAT YOU FORGIVE ME.

THAT YOU MAKE ME NEW AGAIN.

I ASK THAT YOU TAKE AWAY

ANYTHING THAT HOLDS ME, THAT

CONTROLS ME.

AND, JESUS, I WANT TO FOLLOW

YOU ALL OF THE DAYS OF MY

LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER.

CHANGE MY HEART.

MAKE ME NEW AGAIN.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK FOR THAT TOUCH.

THAT YOU WOULD CHANGE THEIR

HEARTS.

THAT YOU WOULD MAKE THEM

NEW.

THAT YOU WOULD FILL THEM

WITH YOUR LOVE AND YOUR

GLORY.

LET IT BE ON THEM NOW.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I'VE

GOT SOMETHING I WANT YOU TO

HAVE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND IN IT IS A C.D.

TEACHING.

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE.

THERE IS ALSO A BOOKLET

FILLED WITH BIBLE VERSES.

WHAT ARE THE FOUNDATIONS OF

THE FAITH.

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY PRAYER

HAS BEEN HEARD, HAS BEEN

ANSWERED.

I ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET

A COPY OF THE BIBLE.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE, WE

HAVE ONE FREE FOR YOU

ONLINE.

YOU JUST HAVE TO GO TO

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO START

READING IT EVERY DAY.

AND WE'VE EVEN GOT A

YOU CAN ALSO DO WHAT JIMMY

DID.

HE STARTED WITH THE GOSPEL

OF JOHN.

THAT'S THE GOSPEL OF LOVE.

AND THAT'S A GOOD PLACE TO

START READING THE BIBLE.

BUT MAKE THAT PHONE CALL.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS

PACKET, "A NEW DAY."

IT'S YOURS.

THE PHONE CALL IS FREE.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, A WOMAN AND HER SON

FACE A KILLER TORNADO IN A

FAST FOOD RESTAURANT.

THE CLOUDS STARTED TO

ROTATE BACK.

AND THE LIGHTS WENT OUT.

AND THEN THERE WAS A SOUND.

IT SOUNDED LIKE A CANNON.

Terry: SEE WHAT HAPPENS

NEXT.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Gordon: DENISE BURROWS

HAD ALWAYS BEEN GOOD WITH

MONEY.

BUT IT ONLY TOOK ONE SERIOUS

INJURY TO GET HER DEEP IN

DEBT.

Reporter: A FREAK

ACCIDENT CHANGED DENISE

BURROW'S LIFE FOREVER, WHEN

SHE SIMPLY WALKED THROUGH A

REVOLVING DOOR.

THE DOOR SMASHED ON MY

LEFT SHOULDER.

AND I WAS WEARING A

RAINCOAT.

IT GOT HOOKED, AND PULLED ME

DOWN THIS WAY, WITH MY ARM

STUCK IN THE DOOR.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY HAD SURGERY TO

REPAIR A SEVERELY TORN

ROTATOR CUFF.

AND SHE WAS UNABLE TO WORK

AS A NURSE AND WAS LIVING

OFF A SMALL DISABILITY

CHECK, AND SHE GOT BEHIND ON

HER BILLS.

THEY WANT THE MONEY.

YOU'RE NOT PAYING.

YOU TRY TO MAKE PAYMENTS

WITH THEM.

I CAN PAY THIS MUCH, VERY

MINIMAL, AND THEY'RE, LIKE,

OKAY, BUT THEY WON'T STOP

CALLING.

EVERYTHING WAS TAKEN, JOB,

FINANCES, HOUSE, MY JOY.

Reporter: DENISE WAS

SOON MORE THAN $7,000 IN

DEBT, AND THAT WAS SIMPLY

FOR NECESSITIES, LIKE RENT,

FOOD, AND GAS.

SHE GAVE TO HER CHURCH WHEN

SHE HAD SOME EXTRA MONEY.

WHILE SHE WAS HOME

RECUPERATING, DENISE WATCHED

"THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S WHEN SHE LEARNED HOW

IMPORTANT IT IS TO GIVE.

AND GORDON BROUGHT UP

MALACHI 3: 10: "BRING ALL OF

YOUR TITHES INTO THE STORE

HOURS, ONE TENTH, AND GOD

WILL OPEN THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN FOR YOU" I REMEMBER

GORDON SAYING THAT.

AND I'M LIKE, IS THAT REALLY

TRUE?

SO I WENT AND LOOKED IT UP

IN MY BIBLE, AND IT WAS.

Reporter: SO DENISE

STARTED TO TITHE REGULARLY

FROM HER DISABILITY CHECK,

AND HER FINANCIAL SITUATION

BEGAN TO CHANGE.

WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, HER

SHOULDER WAS WELL, AND SHE

GOT A GREAT-PAYING JOB AS A

NURSE.

THAT'S WHEN SHE BEGAN TO

PARTNER WITH CBN.

THAT'S JUST WHEN

EVERYTHING FELL INTO PLACE.

THE JOB COMING, BEING ABLE

TO START PAYING BILLS BACK.

JUST FOR THE FIRST TIME I

COULD BREATHE.

Reporter: THIS PAST

APRIL, DENISE GOT A

PROMOTION, WHICH PROVIDED

HER WITH ANOTHER PAY

INCREASE AND A NICE BONUS.

SHE HAS PAID OFF ALL OF HER

CREDIT CARD DEBTS.

GOD IS VERY FAITHFUL, AND

WHEN YOU GIVE, GOD

DEFINITELY, 100% GIVES YOU

ABOVE AND BEYOND.

I'VE ALSO HEARD THAT YOU

CANNOT OUTGIVE GOD, AND I'M

LIVING PROOF IT IS TRUE.

Gordon: SHE IS LIVING

PROOF ITS TRUE.

IT'S A WONDERFUL VERSE.

WE QUOTE IT A LOT.

MALACHI 3: "BRING ALL OF THE

TITHES INTO THE STORE HOUSE

AND PROVE ME NOW IN THIS."

IT'S THE ONLY TIME WE GET TO

TEST GOD, THE ONLY TIME WE

GET TO PROVE HIM,P THAT',

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

TEENAGER BECOMES A TOPLESS

DANCER.

I LOOKED IN THE PAPER AND

IT SAID, MAKE A THOUSAND

DOLLARS A WEEK.

I THOUGHT, I CAN DO THAT.

Terry: WHY SHE BECAME A

STRIPPER, AND WHAT MADE HER

CHANGE HER LINE OF WORK,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A CHRISTIAN BAKER IN

SUBURBAN DENVER HAS APPEALED

AN ORDER THAT REQUIRES HIM

TO PREPARE WEDDING CAKES

FORCE GAY COUPLES.

HE WAS SUED BY A GAY COUPLE

AFTER HE REFUSED TO MAKE A

CAKE FOR THEIR MARRIAGE IN

2012.

HE SAYS THAT WOULD VIOLATE

THE CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES BY

WHICH HE RUNS HIS BUSINESS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

AIDING FAMILIES UNDER THE

THREAT OF BOMBS FROM GAZA.

LOCAL PARKS AND BUS STOPS

ARE QUICKLY RUNNING OUT OF

SUPPLIES, AS FAMILIES SPEND

MORE AND MORE TIME IN THEM.

FAMILIES ARE ARE IN NEED OF

WATER, FOOD, DIAPERS, BABY

FOOD, AND DRINKS.

"OPERATION BLESSING'S" TEAMS

ARE ARE PACKING UP BOXES OF

SUPPLIES TO REPLENISH LOCAL

BOMB SHELTERS IN LOCAL

TOWNS.

REMEMBER YOU CAN FIND OUT

MORE ABOUT "OPERATION

BLESSING" BY GOING TO ITS

WEBSITE AT OB.ORG.

GORDON AND TERRY ARE BACK

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, AS A

TEENAGER, TERESA STARTED

STRIPPING FOR ONE SIMPLE

REASON, SHE WANTED THE

MONEY.

SHE HAD THE SAME MOTIVE WHEN

SHE BECAME A PROSTITUTE, BUT

TERESA SOON FOUND OUT HER

CAREERS CAME WITH A PRICE.

YOU ARE CAPTURING

EVERYBODY'S ATTENTION.

YOU'RE IN THE SPOTLIGHT.

A THOUSAND DOLLARS A WEEK.

I THOUGHT I WAS ON TOP OF

THE WORLD.

YOU'RE BODY COMES ALIVE.

AND THE MONEY, HOW CAN I

REFUSE IT?

Reporter: EASY MONEY,

THAT'S WHAT SEDUCED 17 YEARS

OLD TERESA INTO TOPLESS

DANCING.

I NEEDED A JOB.

I HAD ALREADY RUN AWAY FROM

HOME.

AND I LOOKED IN THE PAPER,

AND IT SAID MAKE A THOUSAND

DOLLARS A WEEK.

A THOUSAND DOLLARS A WEEK.

I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I CAN DO THAT.

I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS, BUT

AT THE SAME TIME, YOU COULD

FEEL THIS SENSE OF POWER

THAT AS A WOMAN TO CAPTURE A

MAN'S ATTENTION THAT WAY.

I DID MAKE GREAT MONEY, BUT

I NEVER HAD ANYTHING TO SHOW

FOR IT.

I SPENT IT LIKE CRAZY.

AS FAST AS I COULD MAKE IT

IN ONE HAND, IT WAS GONE IN

THE OTHER.

Reporter: TERESA

QUICKLY FOUND THAT THE SENSE

OF POWER WAS FLEETING, TOO.

YOU START ACTUALLY HATING

MEN BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE

THEY'RE USING YOU.

YOU WANT TO USE THEM AND

HURT THEM BEFORE THEY CAN DO

THAT TO YOU.

INSIDE I WAS HARD.

Reporter: SHE TOOK THE

EDGE OFF WITH DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL.

I DON'T TAKE LIFE

ANYMORE.

I COULDN'T DEAL WITH LOOKING

IN THE MIRROR AND SEEING

MYSELF.

I WOULD HAVE TO DO SHOTS OF

TEQUILA AND STUFF IN ORDER

JUST TO GO INTO THE CLUBS,

JUST TO START WORKING AFTER

A WHILE.

Reporter: THE PROMISE

OF MORE MONEY DREW TERESA

INTO PROSTITUTION.

I HAD LEARNED THE GAME.

I HAD MASTERED IT.

I COULD NAME MY OWN PRICE

AND HOW MUCH I WANTED TO

CHARGE FOR MY BODY, NOT

ANYONE ELSE.

HOW MUCH I WANTED TO

CHARGE.

I STARTED DRINKING MORE

BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH I

THOUGHT I HAD ALL OF THIS

MONEY AND CONTROL AND POWER,

THERE WAS ALWAYS SOMETHING

MISSING.

I HAD A HOLE INSIDE THAT WAS

ACHING.

I HIT ROCK BOTTOM IN MY LATE

20s.

I HAD THROWN A PARTY AT MY

HOUSE AND I HAD BEEN

DRINKING FOR A COUPLE OF

DAYS STRAIGHT.

I WAS DOING DRUGS ON TOP OF

THAT, PLUS ALSO TAKING

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

I COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH

EVERYTHING.

I COULDN'T KEEP UP WITH THE

GAME THAT MY LIFE WAS

PLAYING.

Reporter: TERESA

OVERDOSED IN A NEAR LETHAL

COMBINATION OF DRUGS,

ALCOHOL, AND MEDICATION.

AND I CAN REMEMBER THE

DOCTOR LOOKING AT ME AND

SAYING, WHAT MADE YOU DO

THAT?

WHAT IS SO BAD IN YOUR

LIFE?

HE SAID, I SEE A PRETTY GIRL

HERE.

Reporter: BUT ON THE

INSIDE, SHE FELT BROKEN.

THE SPIRIT THAT WAS IN ME

HAD ALREADY DIED.

THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT OF

TERESA IN THERE.

IT WAS JUST LIKE A SHELL.

Reporter: AFTER SHE GOT

OUT OF THE HOSPITAL, ANOTHER

AD CAUGHT HER ATTENTION.

A LITTLE AD IN THIS

NEWSPAPER SAID COMMUNITY

CHAP PEL.

AND THE PASTOR'S NAME WAS

PASTOR KENNETH SPORR.

AND HE SAID, YOU'RE INVITED

TO COME.

I REMEMBER SITTING THERE,

AND I HAD ON MY SHORTEST

DRESS AND MY SPIKED HEELS,

THINKING THAT IS WHAT YOU

WERE SUPPOSED TO WEAR.

AND THEY DEPUT DIDN'T TURN

THEIR BACKS ON ME WITH WHAT

I WAS WEARING, OR HOW LOW MY

DRESS WAS OR HOW SHORT IT

WAS.

THEY DIDN'T TELL ME TO GET

OUT.

THEY STAYED WITH ME AND THEY

PRAYED WITH ME.

AT THE END, WHEN THEY HAD

ALTER CALL, I WENT DOWN.

AND I INVITED JESUS INTO MY

HEART THAT NIGHT.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE ME,

AND HE DID.

Reporter: IMMEDIATELY

HER CRAVINGS FOR DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL STOPPED.

AND SHE GOT OUT OF THE

PROSTITUTION.

AND I MADE THAT CHURCH MY

HOME CHURCH.

I WOULD GO EVERY SUNDAY

MORNING.

AND I WOULD GO WEDNESDAY

NIGHTS.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, I HAD

NOT TOTALLY SOLD OUT TO

GOD.

I WOULD GO BACK IN THE CLUB

FOR A WEEK AND WOR WORK AT

NIGHT AND NOT TELL ANYONE.

JUST SO I COULD SAVE SOME

MONEY.

THAT'S WHAT I KEPT TELLING

MYSELF, IT'S JUST FOR A

LITTLE LONGER.

Reporter: FOR TWO YEARS

SHE STRUGGLED TO GET OUT OF

THE STRIP CLUBS.

WHEN SHE GOT A JOB ON A

RANCH, TERESA WAS FINALLY

FREE.

AFTER I STARTED REALLY

SURRENDERING EVERYTHING TO

GOD, I COULD FEEL THAT HE

WANTED ME TO DO MORE FOR

HIM.

THAT IT WASN'T JUST ABOUT

ME.

IT WAS ABOUT HELPING OTHERS

AS I HAD BEEN HELPED.

HE WANTED ME TO START DOING

MINISTRY FOR HIM.

HE WANTED ME TO START

TELLING OTHERS ABOUT HIM.

Reporter: TODAY TERESA

TEACHES A WOMEN'S BIBLE

STUDY AT HER CHURCH AND

ENJOYS SPENDING TIME WITH

HER HUSBAND, WAYNE.

SHE TELLS EVERYONE SHE CAN

ABOUT HOW JESUS SET HER

FREE.

I AM FILLED BEYOND

BELIEF.

I HAVE JOY.

I HAVE PEACE.

I HAVE A FAMILY.

I HAVE A HUSBAND, A HOME, A

MINISTRY.

IT IS MORE THAN I COULD HAVE

EVER DREAMED OF MYSELF, OR

EVEN WISHED FOR.

IF HE CAN TAKE ME AND CHANGE

ME, AND HE DID, HE CAN DO IT

FOR ANYBODY.

Terry: TERESA SAID, HE

DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE ME BUT

HE DID.

THAT'S TRUE FOR ALL OF US.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO CHOOSE ANY

OF US, BUT HE DID.

AND TODAY HIS VOICE IS

CALLING OUT TO YOU.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT?

BECAUSE YOU'VE TUNED INTO

THIS PROGRAM.

IT'S NOT CHANCE THAT YOU'RE

WATCHING TERESA'S STORY OR

HEARING WHAT SHE HAS TO

SAY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE

YOU'VE BEEN OR WHAT YOU'VE

DONE.

CORY TANDOM USED TO SAY,

THERE IS NO PIT SO DEEP THAT

GOD IS NOT DEEPER STILL.

I LOVE THE SCRIPTURE THAT

SAYS, "HE REACHED DOWN AND

PULLED MY LIFE FROM A PIT

AND SET MY FEET ON A ROCK."

GOD DOESN'T WANT US TO LIVE

IN THE PITS THAT WE MAKE FOR

OURSELVES, DEEP, DARK, UGLY,

TERRIFYING PLACES, EMPTY

PLACES.

JESUS SAID, I CAME THAT THEY

MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT

ABUNDANTLY.

HAVE IT ABUNDANTLY.

NOT JUST LIVE.

NOT JUST BREEN BREATHE AIR

IN AND OUT, BUT TO LIVE

ABUNDANTLY, WITH FULLNESS OF

JOY.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THAT, IT

IS BEING OFFERED TO YOU

RIGHT NOW.

THE LORD IS SAYING TO YOU, I

CREATED YOU WITH A PLAN AND

PURPOSE IN MIND.

I WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF

WHO I AM AND WHAT I'M

DOING.

I WANT TO FORGIVE YOUR SINS

AND GIVE YOU A FRESH

BEGINNING.

HOW DOES THAT SOUND?

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO START

OVER?

START OVER KNOWING WHAT YOU

KNOW TODAY.

LETTING GO OF THE JUNK AND

GRABBING HOLD OF WHAT

MATTERS.

YOU CAN DO THAT RIGHT NOW.

JESUS, THE ONE THAT THE WORD

SAYS CREATED EVERYTHING THAT

IS, INCLUDING YOU AND ME,

SAYS HE SAW YOU BEFORE YOU

WERE FORMED IN YOUR MOTHER'S

WOMB, AND HE HAS BEEN

WAITING FOR YOU.

NOW, TODAY, YOU'VE HEARD THE

INVITATION.

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

WILL YOU COME HOME TO THE

HEART OF GOD?

AL YOU HAVE TO DALL YOU

HAVE TO DO IS ASK HIM.

IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

IT IS NOT ABOUT RELIGION OR

CHURCH OR ANY OF THOSE

THINGS.

IT IS ABOUT A RELATIONSHIP.

AND IT BEGINS WITH YOU

HEARING HIS INVITATION AND

SAYING YES, AND OPENING UP

YOUR HEART AND YOUR LIFE TO

HIM.

WILL YOU DO THAT NOW?

JUST PRAY WITH ME.

LET'S GO TO HIM RIGHT NOW.

HE'S HERE.

JESUS, I WANT WHAT TERESA

FOUND.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU MY LIFE,

SHABBY AND MARRED AS IT MAY

BE.

I'M ASKING YOU TO PULL MY

LIFE OUT OF THE PIT AND SET

ME FEET ON THE ROCK OF YOU.

YOUR NAME, YOUR POWER, YOUR

GRACE.

OH, GOD, TEACH ME YOUR

WAYS.

FORGIVE MY SINS.

THEY ARE GREAT AND THEY ARE

MANY.

AND I KNOW THAT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU FOR COVERING ME

WITH YOUR SACRIFICE.

NOW, WILL YOU COME INTO MY

LIFE?

WILL YOU BE AT THE CENTER OF

MY HEART, MY BEING, MY

SOUL?

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE.

FILL ME WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT.

GIVE ME THE POWER TO RISE

ABOVE THE POOR CHOICES OF MY

PAST AND LIVE IN NEWNESS OF

LIFE WITH YOU.

I WANT TO RECEIVE IT ALL

FROM YOU TODAY, JESUS.

AND I GIVE YOU ALL THAT I AM

AND ALL THAT I HAVE.

AND I'M ASKING THIS IN YOUR

PRECIOUS NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER, WE'VE GOT A

WONDERFUL PACKET WE'D LIKE

TO SEND TO YOU.

BECAUSE NOW YOU NEED TO

GROW.

YOU'VE MADE THIS COMMITMENT,

AND HOW DO YOU MOVE FORWARD

IN YOUR LIFE.

THIS IS CALLED "A NEW DAY,"

AND IT'S FILLED WITH

INFORMATION, SOUND ADVICE,

INFORMATION FROM THE WORD OF

GOD.

IT WILL HELP YOU MOVE

FORWARD AS YOU LOVE AND LIVE

IN JESUS CHRIST.

YOU CAN GET IT BY CALLING

THAT TOLL-FREE NUMBER,

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER AND I WOULD LIKE "THE

NEW DAY" PACKET AND WE'LL

GET IT OUT TO YOU RIGHT

AWAY.

UP NEXT, A MOTHER AND SON

FACE A MONSTER STORM ARMED

WITH THE POWER OF PRAYER.

PLUS WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS, SO STAY

WITH US.

CRIEMP

Gordon: ONE MINUTE TARA

MITCHELL AND HER SON WERE

STOPPING FOR A BURGER, AND

THE NEXT THEY WERE FACING AN

F-5 TORNADO.

ONE OF THE WORST IN THE

HISTORY OF MISSISSIPPI.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED.

Reporter: TARA MITCHELL

IS A RETIRED SCHOOL TEACHER

FROM CLINTON, MISSISSIPPI.

WHO ALWAYS THOUGHT SHE HAD A

GOOD GRASP ON SCIENCE AND

WEATHER PATTERNS.

SO IT SEEMED ALMOST ROUTINE

WHEN SHE AND HER SON, MAX,

STOPPED AT A WENDY'S FAST

FOOD RESTAURANT IN YAZOO

CITY TO WAIT OUT WHAT THEY

THOUGHT WAS ANOTHER STORM.

WE WERE LOOKING OUT THE

WINDOWS, AND I NOTICED THAT

THE RAIN STOPPED AND IT GOT

REALLY DARK.

WE'RE LOOKING AT THE CLOUDS,

AND WE JUST STARTED TO

NOTICE THAT THE CLOUDS

STARTED TO ROTATE BACK.

IT WAS LIKE THE WIND WAS

BLOWING THEM PAST, BUT THEY

STARTED TO COME BACK.

Reporter: SO TARA, MAX,

AND ALL OF THE OTHER

RESTAURANT EMPLOYEES AND

GUESTS MADE THEIR WAY TO THE

RESTROOM TO TAKE SHELTER.

AS SOON AS WE CLOSED THE

DOOR, THE LIGHTS WENT OUT.

AND THEN THERE WAS A SOUND.

IT SOUNDED LIKE A CANNON.

THE NEXT THING THAT HAPPENED

WAS THE GROUND STARTED TO

SHAKE, LIKE AN EARTHQUAKE.

AND IN MY MIND, YOU KNOW, MY

TEACHER MIND, I'M THINKING,

THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO

HAPPEN.

I'M SUPPOSED TO HEAR A

ROARING.

I'M SUPPOSED TO HEAR WIND OR

PRESSURE.

THIS IS LIKE AN EARTHQUAKE.

Reporter: BY NOW,

PEOPLE WERE CRYING AND

TRYING TO CALL OUT TO THEIR

FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

I JUST THOUGHT, WHAT CAN

I DO?

SO I JUST THOUGHT, PRAY.

AND THANK GOD FOR WHAT HE

HASN'T DONE YET.

I BEGAN TO THANK HIM FOR HIS

PROTECTION, THAT HE CREATED

THE STORM AND THAT GOD WAS

IN CONTROL OF THE STORM.

AND, YOU KNOW, IF IT WAS HIS

WILL, IT COULD PASS.

I KNEW HE PROMISED IN HIS

WORD THAT IT WAS NOT GOD'S

WILL THAT ANYONE SHOULD

PERISH.

SO TO JUST GIVE THEM A

CHANCE TO CALL UPON THE

LORD.

AND IT WAS OVER RIGHT AFTER

I SAID THAT.

Reporter: TARA STEPPED

OUT OF THE RESTROOM FIRST.

THE BRICK WALL, WITH THE

GLASS WINDOWS, TO THE RIGHT

OF THE RESTAURANT, IT WAS

TOTALLY GONE.

ALL OF THE WINDOWS WERE

GONE.

CHAIRS AND TABLES, SOME OF

THEM WERE MISSING.

THE COUNTER, WHERE YOU STAND

AND PLACE YOUR ORDER, WAS

NOT EVEN IN THE RESTAURANT.

THE CEILING TILES IN THE

RESTAURANT WERE -- THE ONES

THAT WERE NOT MISSING WERE

HANGING, SO THAT YOU COULD

SEE THE SKY.

AND THERE WAS GLASS

EVERYWHERE.

Reporter: WEATHER

OFFICIALS LATER REPORTED

THAT THE TORNADO ON

APRIL 24th, 2010, WAS ON

THE GROUND FOR 149 MILES.

IT LASTED NEARLY THREE HOURS

AND REACHED A MAXIMUM WIDTH

OF 1.75 MILES.

IT REMINDS YOU OF

KATRINA.

THERE ARE NOW OFFICIAL

FATALITIES FROM THIS STORM.

A LOT OF PEOPLE

UNACCOUNTED FOR RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: BUT THE

TORNADO HAD NOT HARMED A

SINGLE PERSON AT WENDY'S.

WHEN I TURNED AND LOOKED

BACK THROUGH THE DOOR INTO

THE RESTROOM, THE RESTROOM

WAS PERFECT.

THERE WERE NO CEILING TILES

OUT OF PLACE.

THERE WERE NO CRACKS IN THE

WALL.

THE DOOR WAS STILL ON THE

HINGES AND OPENED AND CLOSED

FINE.

THERE IS NO WAY ANYBODY

COULD SURVIVE THIS.

THERE IS NO WAY YOU COULD

JUST WALK AWAY WITHOUT EVEN

A SCRATCH, AND WE DID.

I MEAN, THAT'S OUR GOD.

HE JUST MAKES A WAY WHERE

YOU THINK NONE IS POSSIBLE.

AND NO MATTER WHAT SITUATION

YOU'RE IN, YOU KNOW, HE

HEARS YOU, HE SEES YOU, AND

HE IS STANDING THERE,

READY.

HE IS STANDING THERE READY

TO CUP YOU IN HIS HANDS,

JUST LIKE HE DID ALL OF US.

Gordon: HE IS STANDING

THERE, READY TO CUP YOU IN

HIS HANDS.

HE IS OUR VERY PRESENT HELP

IN TIME OF TROUBLE.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

A VERY PRESENT HELP.

SOME OF YOU NEED HELP, AND

YOU'RE CRYING OUT FOR

ANSWERS.

AND YOU'RE WONDERING, YOU

KNOW, CAN GOD HELP ME?

CAN HE PROTECT ME?

CAN HE HEAL ME?

CAN HE PROVIDE FOR ME?

AND THE ANSWER IS, YES, HE

CAN DO ALL OF THOSE THINGS.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

WELL, IT TAKES JUST WHAT

THAT WONDERFUL WOMAN DID.

SHE IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

NEED AND SHE SAYS, I'M JUST

GOING TO PRAY.

I'M JUST GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD.

AND GOD CAME THROUGH FOR

HER.

AND HE'LL DO THAT FOR YOU IF

YOU DO THE SAME THING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DID IS

BELIEVE.

NOW, I WANT TO ENCOURAGE

YOU.

HERE ARE SOME OTHER

WONDERFUL TESTIMONIES.

THIS IS JENNA FROM MAYOR

LAND.

MARYLAND.

SHE IS DIAGNOSED WITH

CROHN'S DISEASE.

AND ALL OF THE DOCTORS COULD

DO IS MONITOR HER SITUATION

AND PRESCRIBE MEDICATIONS.

THE PROBLEM GREW WORSE OVER

EIGHT YEARS.

THEN ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

TERRY, YOU HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

"YOU HAVE DIGESTIVE AND

INTERNAL PROBLEMS,

ESPECIALLY CROHN'S DISEASE.

YOU'VE HAD YEARS OF PAIN.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOUR BODY

RIGHT NOW AND HEALING YOU

COMPLETELY.

JUST RECEIVE THAT."

WELL, JENNA DID JUST THAT,

AND SHE WAS COMPLETELY

HEALED.

SHE HAS HAD ABSOLUTELY NO

SYMPTOMS.

EIGHT YEARS AND NOW NO

SYMPTOMS.

Terry: WOW.

Gordon: SINCE THAT

DAY.

THAT IS A MIRACLE.

Terry: THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

THIS IS NANCY, WHO LIVES IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

SHE BROKE HER RIGHT HIP.

HER DOCTORS PUT SCREWS IN IT

TO HELP HER HEAL, AND AFTER

SHE STARTED HAVING THIS

BURNING PAIN IN HER HIP TO

GREW WORSE AND WORSE.

A C.T. SCAN SHOWED

INFLAMMATION.

BUT THE BURNING PAIN WAS

WORSE ON THE NEXT DAY.

SHE WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND GORDON, YOU SAID,

"SOMEONE WITH A RIGHT HIP

CONDITION, YOU'RE WALKING

WITH A LIMP NOW, AND GOD IS

ABLE TO TAKE AWAY ALL OF THE

PROBLEMS IN THAT RIGHT HIP.

JUST BE HEALED IN JESUS'

NAME."

AND NANCY SAID IT WAS LIKE A

REMOTE CONTROL THAT SOMEONE

SWITCHED OFF THE PAIN AND IT

IS COMPLETELY GONE.

WHEN SHE TOLD HER DOCTOR

WHAT HAPPENED, HE SAID IT

HAD TO BE A MIRACLE.

Gordon: AMEN.

GOD WANTS TO WORK MIRACLES.

JESUS SAID YOU'VE GOT TO

HAVE THE FAITH OF A LITTLE

CHILD.

JUST TO TRUST AND COME TO

DADDY AND SAY, THIS IS WHAT

I NEED.

SO LET'S DO THAT.

AND FAITH IS AN ACT.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, LAY

YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

TERRY AND I WILL AGREE.

JOIN WITH US.

JOIN WITH US AND LET'S

CREATE A GREAT CIRCLE OF

PRAYER.

AND THERE IS A WONDERFUL

VERSE: "WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT

SHALL BE DONE."

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND WE JUST TRUST IN YOUR

UNFAILING LOVE.

YOUR MERCY IS NEW EVERY

MORNING.

YOUR COMPASSION, IT FAILS

NOT.

AND SO IN THAT COMPASSION

AND IN THAT LOVE, WE WORK TO

LOOK TO YOU.

WE DON'T WORK ON OUR OWN

EFFORT.

WE COME TO YOU WITH

NOTHING.

AND WE ASK THAT WITH YOU WE

CAN DO ALL THINGS.

AND SO WITH YOU, TOGETHER,

WE COME INTO AGREEMENT.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE LAYING

HANDS ON THAT AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING, WE

JOIN IN AGREEMENT WITH

THEM.

AND TOGETHER WE SAY OUT

LOUD, BE HEALED AND BE MADE

WHOLE IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

NOW, JUST STRETCH FORTH YOUR

HAND AND TOUCH.

AND HEAL AND RESTORE NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HEARD

THE STORY ABOUT THE RIGHT

HIP, AND YOU'VE GOT PROBLEMS

EN YOUR LEFT HIP, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, PLEASE SAY LEFT

HIP.

YOU JUST FELT LIKE A JOLT OF

ELECTRICITY GO THROUGH YOUR

ENTIRE LEFT LEG.

GOD IS RESTORING THE JOINT,

HE IS RESTORING YOUR GAIT,

AND HE IS TAKING AWAY ALL OF

THAT PAIN NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A TORN

RETINA SITUATION THAT IS

IMPACTING YOUR EYE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW, EVEN THOUGH

NOTHING SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN

ABLE TO REPAIR THAT

SUFFICIENTLY.

GOD IS HEALING IT.

Gordon: THERE IS A GIRL

NAMED LYDIA, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, I NEED TO HEAR MY

NAME.

GOD CALLS YOU BY NAME AND HE

IS HEALING YOU NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

BE HEALED.

BE RESTORED.

BE RENEWED.

WE JUST COME AGAINST THAT

ILLNESS.

IT IS WASTING YOU, AND GOD

IS HEALING YOU NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU'RE USING A

WHEELCHAIR.

YOU HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN IN A

CHAIR, BUT WHATEVER

CONDITION YOU HAVE SEEMS TO

HAVE WORSENED.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO

WALK FREELY AGAIN.

BELIEVE THAT AND STAND ON

THE PROMISE OF GOD AS HE

TOUCHES YOUR BODY.

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU AND PRAISE YOU.

WE JOIN WITH THE PSALMIST,

BLESS THE LORD OH, MY SOUL.

YOU FORGIVE ALL OF OUR

INIQUITIES, YOU HEAL ALL OF

OUR DISEASES, YOU RENEW ALL

OF OUR STRENGTH.

THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'VE

DONE, AND WE RECEIVE IT ALL

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOD REPORT.

WE ALWAYS LIKE TO TELL

PEOPLE WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

SO CALL US AND LET US KNOW.

1-800-759-0700.

IF YOU NEED SOMEONE JUST TO

AGREE WITH YOU IN PRAYER,

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24 HOURS

A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.

ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS JUST

PICK UP THE PHONE AND MAKE A

TOLL-FREE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

IT'S OUR HONOR, AND IT'S A

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY WITH YOU,

PRAY FOR YOU, AND WE WANT TO

DO THAT.

WE'LL COME INTO AGREEMENT

WITH YOU ANY TIME YOU NEED

PRAYER.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO BE

ANSWERING SOME OF YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS WHEN WE

COME BACK.

STAY WITH US.

Terry: I WANT TO ANSWER

SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THAT

YOU'VE SUBMITTED NOW.

THIS ONE IS FROM ONE OF OUR

VIEWERS WHO SAID, "IS IT

MANDATORY TO BE A MEMBER OF

A CHURCH.

MY HUSBAND SAYS IT IS LIKE A

TATTOO, IT IS A MARK.

I WANT TO BE A MEMBER TO

BELONG TO A CHRISTIAN

FAMILY.

IS THAT WRONG?"

Gordon: I DON'T

UNDERSTAND IT BEING A

TATTOO.

IT IS NOT WRONG TO WANT TO

BE A PART OF A CHURCH.

NOW, THERE IS THE CHURCH,

THE BODY OF CHRIST, WHICH

YOU ARE A MEMBER OF AS SOON

AS YOU BELIEVE IT.

AS SOON AS YOU BELIEVE THAT

JESUS WAS SENT, THAT HE DIED

FOR YOUR SINS, THAT HE ROSE

AGAIN, AS SOON AS YOU

BELIEVE THAT, YOU'RE PART OF

THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH, IF YOU

WILL.

BUT I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

JOIN A LOCAL FELLOWSHIP.

I THINK IT IS IN A

FELLOWSHIP THAT YOU GROW,

THAT YOU GET DISCIPLED.

YEAH, BY ALL MEANS JOIN A

CHURCH.

Terry: EF V EVIE WANTS

TO KNOW, WHAT IS THE BEST

WAY TO FORGIVE EVEN IF THE

OFFENDER HAS NOT ASKED?

THE BEST WAY TO FORGIVE

IS TO FORGIVE EVEN IF THEY

DON'T ASK, AND DO IT FROM

YOUR HEART.

BECAUSE EVERY TIME YOU

REMEMBER THE OFFENSE, EVERY

TIME IT COMES BACK, YOU HURT

YOURSELF ALL OVER AGAIN.

YOU BRING UP BITTERNESS AND

RESENT IT.

AND OUR BODIES AREN'T MEANT

FOR THAT.

ALL KINDS OF STRESS HORMONES

GET RELEASED IN YOUR BRAIN,

AND IT AFFECTS YOU.

YOU WANT TO BE FREE FROM

THAT.

YOU WANT TO BE FREE.

SO SET YOURSELF FREE BY

GIVING THEM A GIFT OF

FORGIVENESS EVEN IF THEY

HAVEN'T ASKED FOR IT.

YOU ACTUALLY HELP YOURSELF

WHEN YOU LET IT GO.

AND DO IT.

AND MEAN IT FROM YOUR

HEART.

SOMETIMES THAT'S A PROCESS.

AND SOMETIMES IT'S

DIFFICULT.

BUT DO IT.

I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO

FORGIVE.

AND WHEN YOU DO, YOU GET

MORE FORGIVENESS FROM YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER.

SO REALIZE IT'S SOMETHING

YOU HAVE TO CONTINUALLY DO.

JESUS TALKED ABOUT IT IN

TERMS OF IF WE DON'T

FORGIVE, WE GET DELIVERED

OVER TO TORTURERS.

SO YOU DONT WAN DON'T WANT

THAT.

YOU WANT TO BE SET FREE.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM DANIEL 6: "HE

DELIVERS AND RESCUES, AND HE

WORKS SIGNS AND WONDERS IN

HEAVEN AND ON EARTH."

FOR TERRY, FOR LEE, FOR ALL

OF US, GOD BLESS YOU AND

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
