The 700 Club - August 19, 2014

Stephen’s mother was involved in his father’s murder and she was sentenced to death. Plus, a painful rash on her hands, feet and face were making life miserable for Honey. See how God worked miracles on today’s 700 Club. Read Transcript


THERE WAS BLOOD...

Wendy: THE CHARGE,

MURDER ONE.

MY DAD WAS LAYING ON THE

FLOOR.

Wendy: AND YOU WON'T

BELIEVE WHO WAS ACCUSED OF

THE CRIME.

I WENT INTO THE COURTROOM

THAT DAY AND WAS NOT GOING

TO LACK AT HER.

Wendy: FROM DEATH

ROW...

YOU BECOME NUMB TO A LOT

OF THINGS.

GOD WAS AT WORK.

Wendy: TWO LIVES SAVED,

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

A FEW YEARS AGO, I WAS

WORKING AND ZAIRE, AND

DURING THAT TIME, THE PEOPLE

WENT ON A RAMPAGE IN CERTAIN

CITIES.

AND THEY CALLED IT IN

FRENCH, "PIAGE," OR PILLAGE,

AND THEY TORE UP THE FACTOR

IES AND NEIGHBORHOODS AND

DID IN EXCESS OF $1 BILLION

WORTH OF DAMAGE WHEN IT WAS

OVER.

THE PLANTS WHERE THEY WORKED

WERE JUST SHELLS OF WHAT

THEY WERE BEFORE.

AND THE NATIVES BASICALLY

SAID, WHY DON'T YOU REBUILD

THEM SO WE HAVE JOBS.

AND THE PEOPLE SAID, NOT ON

YOUR LIVES.

IF YOU'RE GOING TO TEAR UP

BUILDINGS, YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO HAVE ANY JOBS.

SO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WERE

OUT OF WORK.

WASN'T THE NORMAL COMMERCE

THEY NEEDED TO FEED

THEMSELVES, AND THEY WERE IN

POVERTY.

SO YOU ASK THEMSELVES, WHY

WILL PEOPLE TEAR UP THE

PLACE WHERE THEY LIVE?

WELL, YOU'VE GOT MOLOTOV

COCKTAILS, YOU'VE GOT TEAR

GAS.

THESE ARE WEAPONS IN ANOTHER

BRUTAL SHOWDOWN BETWEEN

POLICE AND PROTESTORS.

WHO ARE THE PROTESTORS?

WHERE ARE THEY COMING FROM?

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE IN THE

SO-CALLED WAR ZONE?

AND TWO MORE PEOPLE HAVE

ALSO BE SHOT IN FERGUSON,

MISSOURI.

Wendy: AND THE CHILDREN

ARE ALSO BEING AFFECTED.

THE START OF THE SCHOOL HAS

BEEN CANCELLED.

AND THERE IS A NO-FLY ZONE

OVER THE CITY, AND THE

NATIONAL GUARD IS THERE,

ALSO.

Reporter: OVERNIGHT,

THE NATIONAL GUARD KEPT ITS

DISTANCE FROM THE STREET

PROTESTORS, BUT IN A WAY,

FERGUSON LOOKED LIKE A WAR

ZONE.

THAT'S WHY LAW ENFORCEMENT

IS CALLING FOR PEACEFUL

PROTESTS.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE THE

GOOD PEOPLE TO COME OUT AND

PROTEST TOMORROW DURING THE

DAYTIME HOURS.

MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD, AND

YOU CAN BE SEEN, AND WE'RE

NOT THE COVER FOR VIOLENT

AGITATORS.

Reporter: A NUMBER OF

FERGUSON RESIDENTS SAY WHILE

THEY WANT TO PROTEST THE

SHOOTING DEATH OF MICHAEL

BROWN, THEY DO NOT SUPPORT

THOSE RESORTING TO

VIOLENCE.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEACE,

AND THESE OTHER GUYS ARE

JUST LOOKING FOR AN

OPPORTUNITY TO BREAK INTO

DIFFERENT BUSINESSES.

WE'VE SEEN REPORTS WHERE

THERE ARE SOME OUTSIDERS

COMING IN, AND I BELIEVE

THAT'S WHERE THE PROBLEM

COMES.

Reporter: CBN REPORTER

TOM BUERHRING IS ON THE

GROUND.

Reporter: THE REALITY

IS THERE ARE PROTESTORS WHO

ARE PEACEFUL, TRYING TO

CONVEY A MESSAGE,

UNDERSTANDABLY WANT TO BE

HEARD, BUT WHEN THE LIGHTS

GO OUT AND SUNSETS, AND LAW

ENFORCEMENT COMES OUT, IT IN

INSIGHTS THE CROWD.

AND PEOPLE FROM THE OUTSIDE

OF THE AREA COME IN WITH

TREMENDOUS RAGE AND ANGER.

Reporter: PRELIMINARY

AUTOPSY REPORTS SHOWS

18-YEAR-OLD MICHAEL BROWN

HAD MARIJUANA IN HIS SYSTEM,

AND WAS SHOT SIX TIMES.

AT LEAST SIX TIMES.

Reporter: A GRAND JURY

COULD DETERMINE WHAT

HAPPENED IN THE SHOOTING AS

EARLY AS WEDNESDAY, AND THAT

WILL DETERMINE IF OFFICER

DARREN WILSON IS CHARGED.

SOME INITIAL REPORTS SUGGEST

THAT BROWN WAS FACING WILSON

WITH HIS HANDS RAISED, WHILE

OTHER WITNESSES SAY THAT

BROWN WAS CHARGING WILSON.

ATTORNEY-GENERAL ERIC HOLDER

IS HEADING TO FERGUSON ON

WEDNESDAY, AS THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT HAS STARTED A

QUICK INVESTIGATION INTO

BROWN'S DEATH.

FOR MANY BELIEVERS IN ST.

LOUIS RIGHT NOW, THERE IS

HOPE IN THE PEACE OF

CHRIST.

PASTORS ARE ORGANIZING

ANOTHER PRAYER MEETING

TONIGHT AND WORKING TOWARDS

RECONCILIATION AND

FORGIVENESS.

THE FIRST PART OF

RECONCILIATION IS TO GETTING

ALL OF THE POWERS THAT BE,

ALL OF THE VARYING OPINIONS,

THROUGH LEADERSHIP, TO THE

TABLE TO TALK.

Reporter: IN THE

MEANTIME, EXTREME TENSION IN

FERGUSON.

AUTHORITIES HAVE CANCELLED

THE START OF SCHOOL.

THERE IS A NO-FLY ZONE OVER

THE CITY, AND THE NATIONAL

GUARD IS IN TOWN TO STAY FOR

NOW.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, FROM WHAT I

GATHER FROM THE STORY, AND

STILL THE FACTS AREN'T

TOTALLY CLEAR FOR ANY OF US,

BUT THIS GREAT BIG GUY, THIS

GENTLE GIANT, THEY CALL HIM,

WENT INTO A CONVENIENCE

STORE.

AND HE WANTED SOME CIGARS.

SO HE STOLE SOME CIGARS.

AND WHEN THE CLERK TRIED TO

STOP HIM, HE PUSHED THE

CLERK ASIDE, PUSHED HIM

DOWN, AND WALKED OUT INTO

THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.

NOW, WAS HE HIGH ON SOME

KIND OF DRUGS?

THAT HASN'T COME OUT YET.

DO WE HAVE A BLOOD TEST IN

THIS AUTOPSY?

NOBODY HAS RELEASED ANY

EVIDENCE, SO WE DON'T KNOW.

BUT THE NEXT THING IS, WE

UNDERSTAND, HE WAS WALKING

DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE

STREET AND OBSTRUCTING

TRAFFIC.

WHICH SAYS TO ME HE PROBABLY

WAS HIGH ON SOMETHING.

AND HE KNEW THAT HE HAD

COMMITTED A CRIME.

BUT WE SAY THE POLICE MAYBE

DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT YET.

BUT THAT IS, AGAIN,

UNCLEAR.

AND SO THEN DID THIS GIANT

MAN CHARGE THE POLICE

OFFICER, AND THE POLICE

OFFICER TRIED TO DEFEND

HIMSELF?

IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE IT WAS

SOME KIND OF WANTED ACT OF

ASSASSINATION OR EXECUTION.

IT JUST DOESN'T FIT THE

PATTERN.

BUT ON THE STRENGTH OF ONE

MAN WHO ROBBED A STORE AND

WAS SHOT, ALL THESE

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE START

TEARING THE CITY OF FERGUSON

APART, AND PEOPLE ARE COMING

FROM AS FAR AWAY AS

CALIFORNIA AND NEW YORK TO

GET IN ON THE PARTY.

IT IS DISGUSTING WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

AND ANYBODY THAT CONTRIBUTES

TO THAT SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY

ASHAMED OF HIMSELF.

THIS IS THE TIME FOR CALM.

BUT ONE MAN WAS SHOT AND

KILLED.

WE DON'T HAVE THE FACTS

YET.

AND THE TIME IS NOW TO

ESTABLISH EXACTING WHAT

HAPPENED IN A CALM, ORDERLY

FASHION.

BUT THIS LOOTING, THIS

VIOLENCE, THIS KILLING OTHER

PEOPLE -- OTHER PEOPLE HAVE

NOW BEEN KILLED.

THIS IS JUST UNREAL.

IT IS WAY DISPROPORTIONATE

TO ANYTHING THAT HAS

HAPPENED.

YOU ASK YOURSELF WHAT IS

WRONG WITH PEOPLE WHO WOULD

DESTROY THE CITY WHERE THEY

LIVE?

IN OTHER NEWS, THE KURDISH

FIGHTERS IN IRAQ, THE

PESHMERGA, ARE WARNING THAT

THE ISLAMIC TERRORISTS THERE

WILL SOON TARGET THE REST OF

THE WORLD, INCLUDING U.S.A.

JON JES JEJOHN JESSUP HAS

MORE OF THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, KURDISH

WARRIORS SAY THEY'RE THE

FRONTLINE OF DEFENSE AGAINST

THE RADICAL ISLAMIC STATE

TERRORISTS AND THAT THEY

NEED HELP.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THAT

STORY FROM KURDISTAN.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA ACKNOWLEDGED THE

VICTORY OF KURDISH FORCES AT

THE MOSUL DAM.

President Obama: IF

THAT DAM WAS PREACHED, IT

COULD HAVE PROVEN

CATASTROPHIC.

Reporter: BUT THE

BATTLE AROUND THE DAM STILL

GOES ON.

FOR EXAMPLE, THIS ROAD LEADS

STRAIGHT TO THE MOSUL DAM,

ABOUT A 40-MINUTE DRIVE.

BUT THIS IS AS FAR AS THE

PESHMERGA WILL ALLOW US AS

THEY SAY THE ROAD UP AHEAD

HAS BEEN MINED BY ISIS.

THERE ARE STILL MEMBERS

OF ISIS, AND WE WANT TO

CLEAN THAT OUT AS SOON AS

POSSIBLE.

Reporter: WE SAT THERE

WITH ALI HUSSEIN, A DISTRICT

COMMANDER IN MOCKMUR.

PESHMERGA FORCES DRIVE ISIS

OUT OF THIS AREA SEVERAL

DAYS AGO.

HE DESCRIBED THE KIND OF

ENEMY THEY'RE FIGHTING.

WHEN THEY CONTROL THIS

AREA, THEY STARTED TO KILL

PEOPLE, KIDNAP WOMEN, AND

SLAY PEOPLE IN THE STREETS.

THIS IS THE WAY THEY CONTROL

OTHER AREAS.

THEY PERSECUTED YAZIDIS AND

CHRISTIANS, AND THREATENED

THE CHRISTIANS TO EITHER

CONVERT TO ISLAM, PAY THE

TAX, OR BE KILLED.

Reporter: HUSSEIN SAYS

U.S. AIR STRIKES HAVE BEEN

EFFECTIVE AGAINST ISIS, BUT

SAYS ISIS IS BETTER ARMED,

AND THE U.S. NEED TO PROVIDE

THE PESHMERGA WITH OTHER

WEAPONS.

TWO THINGS ARE VERY

IMPORTANT FOR US: TO BE

ARMED BY THE UNITED STATES

AND TO THE TRAINED BY THE

UNITED STATES BECAUSE WE

HAVE THE EXPERIENCE.

BUT EVEN IF WE HAVE HEAVY

WEAPONS, WE NEED THE

TRAINING IN ORDER TO USE

THEM.

Reporter: HE SAYS

KURDISH FORCES NOW FIND

THEMSELVES AT THE POINT OF

THE SPEAR IN THE BATTLE

AGAINST GLOBAL JIHAD.

RIGHT NOW KURDISTAN IS

FIGHTING TERROR ON BEHALF OF

THE WHOLE FREE WORLD.

THE TERRORISTS OF ISIS HAVE

GATHERED HERE FROM

EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AND

THEY POSE A THREAT TO

COUNTRIES ALL OVER THE

WORLD, FROM AUSTRALIA TO

EUROPE AND OTHER COUNTRIES.

Reporter: HE SAYS THEIR

FIGHT IS THE SAME FIGHT AS

THE U.S. AND THE WEST.

WHILE PRESIDENT OBAMA

PLEDGED NO MORE U.S. TROOPS

ON THE GROUND, THE PESHMERGA

BELIEVE THE NEEDED BOOTS ARE

ALREADY THERE.

THE BATTLE OF THE WHOLE

WORLD MOVED HERE TO

KURDISTAN BECAUSE WE ARE THE

PEOPLE OF THIS REGION, AND

WE KNOW HOW TO FIGHT AGAINST

ISIS.

WE KNOW THE AREA AND WE KNOW

WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

SO THIS IS WHY WE NEED THE

SUPPORT OF THE WORLD, IN

ORDER TO STAND AGAINST

ISIS.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, MOKMUR,

KURDISTAN.

John: PAT, THE

PESHMERGA HAVE PROVEN

THEMSELVES TO BE A RELIABLE

FIGHTING FORCE.

Pat: I'VE BEEN CALLING

ON HELP FOR THE PESHMERGA

EVER SINCE THIS WHOLE THING

BEGAN.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THEY

NEED HELP, AND THEY'RE BRAVE

FIGHTERS.

BUT THEY NEED UP TO DATE

WEAPONS.

BECAUSE THE ISIS HAVE STOLEN

WEAPONS.

PESHMERGA CAN WIN, BUT

THEY'VE GOT TO HAVE

AMMUNITION.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE BULLETS IN

YOUR GUN.

YOU CAN'T FIGHT WITH STICKS

AND SPEARS.

AND WHAT THEY'RE SAYING IS

TRUE.

BUT WE HELD ON TO THAT

FICTION THAT IRAQ HAD TO

HOLD TOGETHER, THAT THE

CENTRAL GOVERNMENT HAD TO BE

HONORED AND WE CANNOT SHOW

FAVORTISM TOWARDS ONE

BREAK-AWAY REGION.

WELL, THAT WAS A FICTION --

THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS

FOOLISH.

AND OBAMA SAID UNTIL WE GET

A NEW PRIME MINISTER, WE'RE

NOT GOING TO ACT.

IN THE MEANTIME, ISIS IS

GOBBLING UP EVERY BIT OF

TERRITORY THEY CAN GET THEIR

HANDS ON.

AND SO WE DILLIED AND

DALLIED, AND FINALLY WE HAVE

WON SOMETHING, BUT THERE IS

A LOT MORE TO GO.

BUT THEY'RE GOING AFTER US.

I WANT TO READ YOU

SOMETHING.

THIS IS FROM THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THEY SAID, QUOTE,"WE ARE

AFRAID NOT OF DEATH, BUT WE

DESIRE IT.

HOW WONDERFUL DEATH IS.

LET US DIE A REDEMPTION FOR

MUSLIMS.

JIHAD IS OUR COURSE OF

ACTION, AND DEATH IN THE

CAUSE OF ALLAH, OUR MOST

PRECIOUS WISH."

THAT'S WHO WE'RE FIGHTING

AGAINST, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

THESE ARE CRAZY TERRORISTS,

AND ISIS IS WORSE THAN ANY

OF THEM.

AND THEY SAY WE'RE COMING TO

WASHINGTON, AND THERE IS

GOING TO BE A BLOOD BATH IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

WE'VE GOT TO STOP THEM

HERE.

AND WE NEED TO DO

SOMETHING.

AND NOW WE'RE STARTING TO DO

SOMETHING.

IT'S STILL NOT QUITE ENOUGH,

BUT WE'RE AT LEAST GETTING

IN GAME.

WE'VE GOT TO STOP THESE

FICTIONS THAT DON'T MAKE ANY

SENSE OF THE WE HAVE TO

CONFRONT THE ENEMY ON THE

GROUND.

IF WE HAVE PESHMERGA AS OUR

SURROGATE, LET'S BACK THEM

TO THE GROUND.

WE'RE IN A BATTLE, AND YOU

MIGHT WANT TO KNOW WHO YOUR

ENEMY IS AND WHAT THEY THINK

AND WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

THESE ARE DIRECT QUOTES FROM

THE QURAN, DIRECT QUOTES

FROM THE HADIF, AND THE

HISTORY OF MOHAMMED.

I THINK YOU'LL FIND IT

EXTREMELY WELL-DONE, AND

REACHED BY THOSE WHO SPEAK

AR BAC ARABIC AND WHO ARE

FLUENT IN THE ISLAMIC

LANGUAGE.

CALL IT AND WE'LL MAKE IT

AVAILABLE TO YOU.

John: PAT, ANOTHER

EXAMPLE OF THE ISLAMIC

THREATS AGAINST THE WORLD,

ISIS ISSUED A NEW WARNING TO

AMERICA.

THE VIDEO SHOWED A

BLOOD-STAINED AMERICAN FLAG

WITH THE PHRASE "WE WILL

DROWN ALL OF YOU IN BLOOD."

AND IT SHOWED I EDITED

CLIPS OF THEIR SOLDIERS

KILLING U.S. SOLDIERS.

WELL, AMERICANS ARE NOW

SUPPORTIVE OF GETTING

INVOLVED IN IRAQ THAN THEY

WERE JUST A MONTH AGO.

A NEW "U.S.A. TODAY"

RESEARCH POLL SHOWS NOW BY A

MARGIN OF 44% TO 41%, PEOPLE

SAY THE U.S. BEARS A

RESPONSIBILITY TO DO

SOMETHING ABOUT THE VIOLENCE

IN IRAQ.

LAST MONTH THE AMERICANS

OPPOSED THE IDEA BY 55% TO

39%.

CBN NEWS SPOKE WITH THE

PRIVATE OWNER NER OF

BLACKWATER ABOUT IRAQ.

AND HE SAYS THE CRISIS IN

IRAQ TODAY COMES AS A RESULT

OF U.S.'S FAILURE OF

LEADERSHIP.

TENS OF THOUSANDS WERE

WOUNDED, ALL FOR VERY

LIMITED EFFECTS.

I COME BACK TO YOU WITH THAT

WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOUR

YEARS AGO.

MALIKI LOST THE ELECTION AND

HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FORCED

OUT, AND HE WASN'T.

John: HE SAYS IT IS

CRITICAL THAT IRAQ FINALLY

HAS A NEW PRIME MINISTER,

AND THE MAIN JOB WILL BE TO

INFLUENCE SUNNI IRAQIS TO

JOIN THE GOVERNMENT.

MILITARY VICTORIES DRIVE

DIPLOMATIC BREAKTHROUGHS.

IF HE IS ABLE TO CUT OFF AND

CRUSH THE ISIS' CAPABILITY

TO REIGN TERROR, AND HE

REACHES OUT TO THE SUNNIS,

AND THEY SAY WE WANT YOU AS

PART OF IRAQ, WE NOT HERE TO

SUPPRESS YOU, THAT'S

PROBABLY THE BEST WAY

FORWARD.

BUT THEY'RE GOING TO THEY

HAD TO USE REAL CAPABILITY

TO DO THAT.

THAT'S A WONDERFUL THEORY,

BUT IT COMES DOWN TO WHAT DO

YOU MAKE HAPPEN IN THAT GRID

SQUARE ON THE GROUND.

John: YOU CAN FIND MUCH

MORE OF THAT ANALYSIS AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

MORE A THIRD OF AMERICANS

HAVE NO RETIREMENT SAVINGS

AT ALL.

A NEW STUDY FOUND THAT 36%

OF AMERICANS HAVEN'T SAVED

ANYTHING FOR RETIREMENT.

BREAKING DOWN THE NUMBERS BY

AGE, THE SURVEY FOUND 69% OF

YOUNGER AMERICANS, FROM 18

TO 29, HAVEN'T STARTED TO

SAVE FOR RETIREMENT YET.

33% OF PEOPLE FROM 30 TO 49

HAVEN'T.

AND THE SAME IS TRUE FOR 26%

OF PEOPLE FROM 50 TO 54.

PAT, THOSE NUMBERS ARE

ALARMING.

I GUESS THE ONE SILVER

LINING IS THAT YOUNGER

ADULTS ARE STARTING TO SAVE

EARLIER THAN THEIR PARENTS

AND GRANDPARENTS DID.

Pat: IF THEY ONLY

UNDERSTOOD IF YOU CAN LET

YOUR MONEY MULTIPLE 9%, 8%,

6%, TAX-FREE, IT WILL BUILD

UP AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT BY THE

TIME 20, 30 YEARS IS

FINISHED, BUT YOU HAVE TO

START EARLY, AND THAT'S VERY

IMPORTANT.

JOHN WHA, WHAT WE'VE GOT TO

FACE RIGHT NOW IS THE BABY

BOOM GENERATION.

THE BABY BOOM GENERATION IS

COMING THROUGH THE PYTHON,

AND IT IS HITTING RETIREMENT

AGE RIGHT NOW.

SO THE BABY-BOOMERS ARE

GOING TO STOP BUYING HOUSE,

STOP BUYING FURNITURE AND

ALL OF THE STUFF THEY DO FOR

HOUSEHOLD FORMATION, AND

THEY'RE GOING TO START

DRAWING DOWN THEIR SAVINGS.

AND IF THEY DON'T HAVE ANY

SAVINGS, THERE IS GOING TO

BE AN ENORMOUS BURDEN ON THE

GOVERNMENT.

AND THE GOVERNMENT IS

ALREADY STRESSED OUT.

$17TRILLION WORTH OF DEBT

NOW WE'VE BUILT UP IS

INSUPPORTABLE.

SO HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY

FOR THE RETIREMENT.

Wendy: IT IS SO MUCH

MORE FUN TO SAVE WHEN THE

STOCK MARKET IS GOING UP.

Pat: IT IS FUN TO,

REGARDLESS.

I CAN SHOW YOU WAYS WHERE

THERE IS STUFF RIGHT NOW

THAT PAYS 8%, 9%, JUST YEAR

AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER

YEAR.

AND IT IS REAL NICE.

Wendy: AND YOU ARE A

HUGE FAN OF MASTER LIMITED

PARTNERSHIPS.

Pat: ONE OF THEM,

KINDER MORGAN RICHARD KINDER

IS A MASTER GENIUS.

THE LITTLE COMPANIES THAT

BEAR THEIR NAME -- THOSE

RASCALS HAVE GONE UP

BEAUTIFUL, WELL OVER 20%.

THERE ARE LITTLE GOODIES IN

THERE, IN ADDITION TO THE

INTEREST.

BUT THERE ARE SEVERAL OF

THEM, THAT ARE DONE

PRIMARILY BY TEXAS OIL MEN.

THEY'RE GOOD INVESTMENTS.

MASTER LIMITED PARTNERS.

THAT'S JUST ONE WAY.

Wendy: DO YOU THINK THE

MARKET IS GOING TO KEEP

DOING WELL?

IT'S ON A ROLL FOR NOW.

Pat: IT IS FOR NOW.

IT IS A LITTLE FROTHY, AND

IT WILL PROBABLY TURN OVER.

BUT WITHOUT QUESTION, IT HAS

BEEN GOING UP, UP, UP, BUT

IT HAS BEEN SUPPORTED BY THE

FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD, WHICH

IS ISSUING MONEY LIKE

CRAZY.

THEY'RE STARTING TO WITHDRAW

THAT STIMULUS, AND WHEN THAT

COMES OUT, IT IS LIKE AIR

COMING OUT OF A BALLOON.

Wendy: ENJOY IT WHILE

WE CAN.

UP NEXT, A GERL WIT GIRL

WITH LEUKEMIA EXPERIENCES A

MIRACLE ON A MOUNTAIN.

WHEN I WOKE UP, MY MOM

SAYS I WAS COMPLETELY>=>-

BETTER.

I WAS HEALED.

HALLELUJAH.

Wendy: THOUSANDS OF

OTHERS HAVE ALSO BEEN HEALED

ON PRAYER MOUNTAIN.

WE'LL TAKE YOU THERE WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: I BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES!

MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE AFTER

MIRACLE, THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS

ON A REGULAR BASIS AT A

PLACE OVERLOOKING THE CITY

OF DALLAS.

IT HAS TAKEN A NAME AFTER

ONE THAT IS IN KOREA CALLED

"PRAYER MOUNTAIN."

AND FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS,

PEOPLE HAVE COME TO THIS

RETREAT FOR HEALING.

WE SENT JENNIFER WISHON TO

THE PRAYER MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB

UP AND FIND OUT ABOUT

MIRACLES ON THE MOUNTAIN.

Reporter: AT THE YOUNG

AGE OF SIX, VIVIANA FACED A

DIAGNOSIS OF LEUKEMIA.

WE DIDN'T KNOW THE LORD.

WE WEREN'T SAVED.

WE WERE JUST GOING THROUGH

LIFE.

WE JUST DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

I WAS IN FIRST GRADE WHEN I

WAS DIAGNOSED.

AND, YOU KNOW, AS YOU CAN

IMAGINE, OUR WHOLE LIVES

JUST COMPLETELY JUST KIND OF

CRUSHED.

Reporter: THEN CAME

CHEMOTHERAPY, AND VIVIANA

COULD BARELY STAND THE

PAIN.

I WAS LATE IN MY

TREATMENTS AND I WAS FEELING

REALLY, REALLY SICK.

AND THEY HAD ALREADY DONE

EVERYTHING THEY COULD,

WHENEVER I WAS FEELING SICK

FROM THE CHEMO AND THE

CANCER.

YOU FEEL SO SICK FROM THE

CANCER, BUT THE CHEMO KILLS

EVERYTHING.

THE DOCTOR SAYS, THERE IS

NOTHING ELSE WE CAN DO.

Reporter: AROUND THE

SAME TIME, A FAMILY FRIEND

CO CONVINCED HER MOM TO

BRING HER HERE, TO PRAYER

MOUNTAIN.

SHE BROUGHT ME, AND SHE

SAT ON THAT SIDE OF THE

PEWS.

AND I WAS ASLEEP.

I FELL ASLEEP, AND MY MOM

SAID THAT THE WHOLE CHURCH

STOPPED.

AND THE PASTOR STOPPED THE

CONGREGATION AND HAD

EVERYONE COME AND THEY ALL

LAID HANDS ON ME AND PRAYED

FOR ME.

I WAS ASLEEP THROUGH ALL OF

IT.

AND WHEN I WOKE UP, MY MOM

SAID THAT I WAS COMPLETELY

BETTER.

I WAS A NEW LITTLE GIRL.

NONE OF THAT WAS AFFECTING

ME.

Reporter: THANKS TO

THAT MIRACLE ON THE

MOUNTAIN, THE ENTIRE FAMILY

WOULD EVENTUALLY COME TO

KNOW CHRIST.

MIRACLES HAPPEN HERE ON A

REGULAR BASIS.

PASTOR ROBERT SUMMERS AND

HIS WIFE JOANNE DISCOVERED

PRAYER MOUNTAIN NEARLY 30

YEARS AGO.

THEY SAY GOD TOLD THEM TO

BUY IT AND BILL A PRAYER

CENTER AT ITS SUMMIT.

SINCE THEN ADDED A GARDEN

AND A PRAYER DECK

OVERLOOKING THE CITY.

IN DALLAS, WHERE EVERYTHING

IS BIG, PEOPLE ARE CLIMBING

THE BIGGEST MOUNTAIN SEEKING

GOD, AND HE IS ANSWERING IN

MIRACULOUS WAYS.

ITS PEAK STANDS AT ONLY

900 FEET, BUT WHEN YOU REACH

THE TOP, THE VIEWS ARE

SPECTACULAR.

WE HAVE A LINEAGE OF

PRAYER AND OUR FAMILIES THAT

GOES ALL THE WAY BACK TO

PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AND

WE KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF

PRAYER AND WHAT PRAYER CAN

DO TO CHANGE THINGS.

Reporter: IN THE

MID-'90s, JOANNE AND HER

MOTHER WERE FEATURED IN A

"700 CLUB" STORY CALLED "THE

SEA DRIFT INTERCESSORS."

IT CALLED A MIRACULOUS TALE

OF A GROUP OF WORLD WAR II

SURVIVORS.

THE WOMEN OF JOANNE'S CHURCH

GATHERED DAILY, INTERCEDING

FOR ALL 52 MEN FROM THEIR

CONGREGATION THAT WERE SENT

INTO BATTLE, AND ALL 52

RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

SHE NOW TEACHES IT TO A NEW

GROUP OF INTERCESSORS,

INCLUDING POLITICIANS.

FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS WE

HAVE BEEN HERE, EVERY MAYOR

IN DALLAS, OR WANNA BE

MAYOR, HAS COME OUT HERE AND

ASKED US TO PRAY FOR THEM.

WHAT WE COULDN'T SEE

WHILE WE WERE THERE IS THAT

THE LORD IS WEAVING US INTO

THE FABRIC OF THIS

MOUNTAIN.

AS WE COME DOING FOR

DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS,

DIFFERENT ETHNIC GROUPS, AND

WE AGREE IN THE PLACE OF

PRAYER, IT RELEASES POWER.

Reporter: JUST ASK

VIVIANA.

SHE IS 20 YEARS OLD NOW AND

GIVES CREDIT TO GOD AND THE

NEW GENERATION OF

INTERCESSORS.

I WAS HEALED.

HALLELUJAH.

AND JUST BY HIS STRIPES, I

WAS HEALED, YOU KNOW?

AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR THE

DOCTORS AND THE PEOPLE, YOU

KNOW, THAT HELPED AND

EVERYTHING.

AND FOR ALL THEY HAVE DONE.

THEY WERE JUST SO

SUPPORTIVE.

BUT I WOULDN'T BE HERE

WITHOUT THE LORD TODAY.

SHE WILL NOT DIE, BUT LIVE

AND PROCLAIM WHAT THE LORD

HAS DONE.

HERE IT COMES, ALL THE GLORY

TO GOD.

Reporter: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS, DALLAS,

TEXAS.

Pat: ISN'T THAT WHAT

JESUS SAID?

YOU CAN MOVE A MOUNTAIN IF

YOU SAY AND DON'T DOUBT IN

YOUR HEART IT WILL DO WHAT

YOU SAY.

WHEN PEOPLE COME TOGETHER,

GOD ANSWERS THEIR PRAYER.

WENDY?

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

A WONDERFUL STORY.

COMING UP, A MAN WHO'S

MOTHER WAS ON DEATH ROW FOR

THE MURDER OF HIS FATHER.

I HAD NO DESIRE TO TALK

TO HER.

A LOT OF ANGER AND

BITTERNESS AND RESENTMENT

HAD BUILT UP.

WE DID NOT COMMUNICATE FOR

OVER 20 YEARS.

Wendy: HEAR THE SONG

THAT BROKE THROUGH THIS

SON'S BITTERNESS AND LED TO

A RECONCILIATION WITH HIS

MOM.

Pat: BLUDGEONED AND

DYING IN A POOL OF BLOOD ON

THE FAMILY ROOM FLOOR,

THAT'S HOW 12-YEAR-OLD

STEVEN OWENS FOUND HIS

FATHER WHEN HE WALKED INTO

THE HOUSE AFTER CHURCH ONE

SUNDAY.

BUT FIVE DAYS LATER, STEVEN

GOT AN EVEN GREATER SHOCK

WHEN POLICE MADE AN ARREST

FOR HIS FATHER'S BRUTAL

MURDER AND CHARGED THE

MURDER TO HIS OWN MOTHER.

IT WAS A SUNDAY.

WE HAD BEEN AT CHURCH.

WE GOT HOME AND PULLED IN

AND MY DAD'S CAR DOOR WAS

OPEN, I REMEMBER THAT.

AND WHEN I WALKED INTO THE

DEN, MY DAD WAS LAYING ON

THE FLOOR.

WHEN ESA I SAW HIM, THERE

WAS BLOOD AND SOME STUFF

THERE THAT I REMEMBER, BUT

HE WAS ALIVE AT THAT POINT.

Reporter: FEBRUARY 17,

1985, IS A DAY STEVEN OWENS

HAS RELIVED IN HIS MIND FOR

30 YEARS.

I FELT A SINKING FEELING

IN MY STOMACH.

I KNEW HE WAS IN BAD SHAPE.

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT CAUSED

ANY OF IT.

Reporter: BUT STEVEN

WOULD SOON FIND OUT.

HIS FATHER, RON OWENS, DIED

IN THE HOSPITAL EARLY THE

NEXT MORNING.

FIVE DAYS LATER, STEVEN'S

MOTHER, GAIL OWENS, WAS

ARRESTED FOR HER PART IN HIS

MURDER.

I GOT VERY ANGRY QUICK,

VERY ANGRY, VERY RESENTFUL.

I HAD A LOT OF QUESTIONS,

BUT I REALIZED A LOT OF

THOSE QUESTIONS I MIGHT

NEVER GET THE ANSWER TO.

Reporter: THE OWENS'

FAMILY ALWAYS APPEARED TO BE

THE PERFECT CHRISTIAN

FAMILY.

BUT AFTER THE MURDER, A

DIFFERENT PICTURE EMERGED.

GAIL ACCUSED HER HUSBAND OF

INFIDELITY AND ABUSE,

SOMETHING STEVEN NEVER SAW.

I DID NOT RECOGNIZE ANY

OF THAT.

MY PARENTS WERE VERY

PROTECTIVE OF US, SO I WOULD

EXPECT THAT WOULD BE STUFF

THEY DID NOT WANT US TO

WITNESS.

Reporter: STEVEN AND

HIS BROTHER, BRIAN, MOVED IN

WITH AN AUNT AND WAITED FOR

A TRIAL.

IT WAS A YEAR, ALMOST,

BEFORE THE TRIAL CAME UP.

SO A LOT OF ANGER AND

BITTERNESS AND RESENTMENT

HAD BUILT UP.

Reporter: STEVEN WAS

STUNNED TO DISCOVER HIS

MOTHER HAD PAID A MAN NAMED

SIDNEY PORTERFIELD TO KILL

HIS FATHER.

DURING THE TRIAL, STEVEN WAS

CALLED TO THE WITNESS STAND.

Reporter: GAIL AND

PORTERFIELD WERE FOUND

GUILTY AND WERE SENTENCED TO

THE ELECTRIC CHAIR.

WE, AS A FAMILY, HAD

TAKEN THE STANCE WE WOULD

NOT GET INVOLVED IN ANY

OTHER COURT PROCEEDINGS.

Reporter: LAWYERS TRIED

TO APPL APPEAL HIS MOTHER'S

DEATH SENTENCE OVER THE NEXT

SEVERAL YEARS, MEANWHILE

STEVEN MISSED NOT HAVING HIS

PARENTS.

THEY'RE NOT THERE FOR

THINGS AND THEY SHOULD BE

THERE.

Reporter: GAIL TRIED TO

CONTACT HER SONS FROM

PRISON.

I HAD NO DESIRE TO TALK

TO HER.

SHE WOULD SEND CARDS TO ME,

AND I DID GET SOME OF THEM,

AND EVENTUALLY I DIDN'T READ

ALL OF THEM.

Reporter: STEVEN GREW

UP, GRADUATED COLLEGE, AND

MARRIED LISA.

THE COUPLE HAD TWO SONS AND

MOVED TO NASHVILLE TO START

A NEW LIFE.

THERE STEVEN GOT A TEACHING

JOB AND TRIED TO PUT THE

PAST BEHIND HIM.

MEANWHILE, YEARS OF APPEALS

DRAGGED ON WHILE GAIL SAT ON

DEATH ROW.

WE DID NOT COMMUNICATE

FOR OVER 20 YEARS.

I HAD TO DO WHAT I NEEDED TO

DO TO CONTINUE TO TRY TO

MOVE FORWARD IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: ONE DAY AFTER

SHARING THE STORY OF HIS

FATHER'S MURDER AT SCHOOL, A

FELLOW FACULTY MEMBER

APPROACHED HIM.

AND HE SAID, YOU ARE

STEVEN OWENS.

AND I SAID, YES, SIR, I AM.

AND HE SAID, WELL, YOUR

MOTHER HAS ATTENDED MY BIBLE

STUDY GROUPS AT THE PRISON

FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

Reporter: STEVEN COULD

NOT BELIEVE WHAT HE WAS

HEARING.

HOW DO YOU MOVE 200

SOMETHING MILES FROM WHERE

EVERYTHING HAPPENED, YOU END

UP AT A SCHOOL, AND YOU GIVE

YOUR TESTIMONY, AND A GUY

WHO HAS A CONNECTION TO YOUR

MOM IS CO-TEACHING WITH YOU

AT THAT SCHOOL?

THAT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST

THINGS WHEN I KNEW GOD WAS

AT WORK.

Reporter: STEVEN'S

COLLEAGUE ENCOURAGED HIM TO

RESTORE THE RELATIONSHIP

WITH HIS MOTHER.

HE WOULD CONSTANTLY SAY,

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT

GOING TO SEE HER?

SHE IS YOUR MOTHER.

SHE WOULD LIKE TO SEE YOU.

I KNOW, BECAUSE SHE HAS TOLD

ME.

AND IT DAWNED ON ME ONE DAY

THAT I'M TEACHING

FORGIVENESS IN MY HOME, HERE

IS HOW WE SHOULD LIVE.

AND YET IF THEY ASKED ME IF

I HAD FORGIVEN MY MOM, I

WOULD HAVE TOSAY NO.

Reporter: A YEAR LATER,

STEVEN WAS LISTENING TO

MUSIC WHILE JOG, AND WHEN

THE SONG, "MY REDEEMER

LIVES," CAME ON.

I REMEMBER WHEN THE MUSIC

CAME ON.

AND THE NEXTTHENING NEXT

THING I KNEW, I WAS STANDING

IN MY DRIVEWAY.

I EXPERIENCED GOD SPEAKING

TO ME.

AND I KNEW I FEEDE NEEDED

TO GO SEE HER.

Reporter: STEVEN MADE

AN APPOINTMENT TO GO SEE

HER.

MY FAMILY WENT TO CHURCH

THAT MORNING.

I REMEMBER THAT CHURCH

SERVICE BEING ONE OF THE

MOST EMOTIONAL CHURCH

SERVICES I THINK I HAD EVER

ENCOUNTERED IN MY LIFE.

YOU YOU IT WAS ALMOST LIKE

EVERY SONG THAT WAS SUNG,

EVERY WORD THAT WAS SPOKEN

IN CHURCH, WAS DREBTED

DIRECTED AT ME.

MY PRAYER FOR YEARS WAS,

LORD, LET ME SEE MY

CHILDREN, LET ME SEE MY

SISTER.

AFTER YEARS WENT BY, I HAD

ONE PRAYER, IF I COULD JUST

SEE STEVEN ONE TIME.

THAT'S ALL I ASKED FOR.

SO WHEN HE CAME TO THE

PRISON TO VISIT, I WALKED

AWAY FROM THAT VISIT SAYING,

LORD, YOU ANSWERED THE

PRAYER.

THE LAST FIVE MINUTES OF

THE VISIT, MOM LOOKED AT ME,

AND SHE SAID, STEVEN, I

CAN'T CHANGE WHAT I'VE

DONE.

ALL I CAN ASK IS THAT YOU

FORGIVE ME.

AND I KNEW THAT WAS THE DOOR

THAT GOD HAD OPENED FOR ME

TO TELL HER WHAT I HAD COME

THERE TO TELL HER, AND THAT

IS THAT SHE HAD BEEN

FORGIVEN.

Reporter: STEVEN

VISITED HIS MOTHER EVERY

WEEK.

DURING THAT TIME, SHE SHARED

WITH HIM ABOUT HER ENCOUNTER

WITH CHRIST IN PRISON AND

HOW SHE HAD REPENTED.

THE ONE THING I CAME TO

LEARN IS THERE IS A

DIFFERENCE IN GOING TO

CHURCH FROM A GENUINE

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.

I REMEMBER THERE WAS ONE DAY

I CRIED FOR EIGHT HOURS.

I FELT LIKE I WAS DEHYDRATED

BY THE TIME IT WAS OVER.

AND IT KIM FRO CAME FROM

THE PIT OF MY STOMACH AND

HEART, AND COULD GOD REALLY

FORGIVE ME.

AND I GOT UP THERE, AND I

SAID, GOD, ONLY WITH YOU CAN

I DO THIS.

Reporter: GAIL'S

EXECUTION DATE WAS FINALLY

SET.

SHE HAD 72 DAYS TO LIVE.

THEN THE TENNESSEE GOVERNOR

CALLED A PRESS CONFERENCE

AND MADE A STUNNING

ANNOUNCEMENT.

GAIL'S ATTORNEY CALLED

STEVEN WITH THE NEWS.

ONE OF THE ATTORNEYS JUST

SAID, HE HAS GRANTED LIFE

WITH PAROLE, AND HE HAS

GIVEN HER 1,000 DAYS TOWARDS

THAT.

I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

YOU KNOW, IT'S ONE THING TO

GET A PHONE CALL LIKE THAT

AND HEAR THAT YOUR MOM IS

NOT GOING TO BE PUT TO

DEATH.

IT'S ANOTHER THING WHEN YOU

GET A PHONE CALL LIKE THAT

AND YOU REALIZE THAT THERE

MIGHT BE HOPE THAT SHE MIGHT

WALK OUT ONE DAY.

Reporter: THAT HOPE

BECAME REALITY LESS THAN TWO

YEARS LATER WHEN GAIL WALKED

OUT OF THE PRISON IN

SEPTEMBER 2011.

GAIL NOW WORKS FOR A COMPANY

THAT HELPS REHABILITATE

FORMER PRISONERS.

STEVEN AND GAIL HAVE

RESTORED THEIR RELATIONSHIP,

AND GAIL IS HOPEFUL THAT

OTHERS WILL BE MENDED ONE

DAY AS WELL.

IT IS A DAY-TO-DAY

JOURNEY TO REESTABLISH THAT

RECALLS.

IT IS WELL-WORTH EVERY TEAR

YOU SHED, AND IT IS

WELL-WORTH EVERY TIME YOU

LOOK INTO THE EYES OF YOUR

GRANDSONS, THAT WE SERVE A

GOD WHO MADE IT ALL COME

TOGETHER.

Reporter: STEVEN AND

GAIL SHARE THEIR STORY OF

LOVE, FORGIVENESS, AND

REDEMPTION IN THEIR RECENTLY

PUBLISHED BOOK "SET FREE."

THERE

THERE IS A FREEDOM IN

KNOWING CHRIST AND KNOWING

THAT YOU'RE FORGIVEN, AND

SUCH GRACE AND MERCY WAS

GIVEN ME.

I DESIRE THAT FOR EVERYBODY,

FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.

FORGIVENESS IS NOT

FORGIVING -- NONE OF MY

FAMILY WILL EVER FORGET THE

LOSS, BUT IN HIM WE DO HAVE

A FREEDOM AND WE CAN WALK

FREE.

Pat: JESUS CHRIST WAS

ASKED BY HIS DISCIPLES TO

EXPLAIN THE WAY MIRACLES

HAPPEN, HOW DO YOU GET YOUR

PRAYERS ANSWERED?

AFTER JESUS EXPLAINED TO

THEM HOW IT IS TO SPEAK THE

WORD, AND WHEN HE FINISHED

HE SAID, WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE AS YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER FORGIVES

YOU.

YOU SEE, THAT'S THE KEY.

IF YOU DON'T FORGIVE, ALL OF

THE MIRACLE POWER OF GOD IS

NO LONGER MADE AVAILABLE TO

YOU.

YOU WILL NOT HAVE MIRACLES.

YOU WILL NOT SEE MIRACLE

HEALINGS.

YOU WILL NOT SEE DRAMATIC

ANSWERS TO PRAYER BECAUSE

YOU ARE NOT ENTERING INTO

THE STATE OF BEING BORN

AGAIN.

AND THE STATE OF BEING BORN

AGAIN IS HAVING YOUR SINS

FORGIVEN.

AND IF YOU DON'T FORGIVE

OTHERS, THE HEAVENLY FATHER

IS GOING TO WITHHOLD SOME OF

THAT SINS OF FORGIVENESS FOR

YOU.

WHICH IS IT GOING TO BE?

ARE YOU GOING TO ENJOY THE

WONDERFUL SAVER OF HATEFUL

AND BITTERNESS AS IT BUILDS

UP INSIDE OF YOU, AND I'M

NOT GOING TO FORGIVE HER FOR

WHAT SHE DID, OR ARE YOU

GOING TO SAY THAT JESUS

CHRIST FORGAVE ME AND I'LL

FORGIVE OTHERS?

DO YOU WANT TO BE FREE?

THINK OF WHAT HAS BEEN DONE

TO YOU.

YOU ARE LOOKING AT SOMEBODY

WHO HAS REASON TO HATE A LOT

OF PEOPLE BECAUSE I HAVE

BEEN BEAT UP IN SO MANY

WAYS.

BUT THE LORD HAS TAKEN AWAY

THE ABILITY TO HOLD A

GRUDGE.

I JUST CAN'T DO IT.

AND THE SAME THING WITH YOU

BECAUSE THE POWER OF GOD IS

SO GREAT.

THE FORGIVENESS OF GOD IS SO

GREAT.

AND THE MIRACLE POWER OF GOD

IS SO GREAT.

AND THE POTENTIAL OF LIFE IS

SO GREAT.

YEAH, YOUR WIFE CHEATED WITH

YOUR BEST FRIEND.

YEAH, YOUR HUSBAND IS OUT

WATCHING PORN.

YEAH, THIS GUY BEAT YOU UP.

YEAH, THIS MAN TOOK

ADVANTAGE OF YOU AT WORK AND

DIDN'T GIVE YOU THE

PROMOTION YOU WANTED.

YEAH, IN SCHOOL YOU SHOULD

HAVE GOT AN "A" PLUS, AND

INSTEAD OF THAT YOU GOT A

"C" MINUS AND IT WAS ALL

CROOKED.

YES, THE ELECTION WAS

RIGGED.

AND YOU CAN GO ON AND ON AND

ON ABOUT THE NASTY THINGS

PEOPLE DO.

BUT THE QUESTION IS: GOD

SAYS TO YOU, WILL YOU

FORGIVE?

I FORGIVE YOU; WILL YOU

FORGIVE OTHERS?

RIGHT NOW, WHEREVER YOU ARE,

I'M GOING TO LEAD YOU TO

PRAYER.

AND WHEN I GET TO A POINT

I'M GOING TO LEAVE A LITTLE

SPACE, AND I WANT YOU TO PUT

THE PERSON OR PERSONS

INVOLVED, AND YOU'RE GOING

TO BE SET FREE TODAY.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY THESE

WORDS.

DO IT FROM YOUR HEART AND

WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO FOR

YOU.

LORD GOD -- THAT'S RIGHT,

SAY IT WITH ME.

LORD GOD, YOU KNOW WHAT HAS

BEEN DONE TO ME.

YOU KNOW HOW I'VE BEEN

HURT.

YOU KNOW HOW MY LIFE HAS

BEEN TORN APART BY THE

UNKIND ACTS OF OTHERS.

NOW, YOU KNOW AND I KNOW,

AND SO RIGHT NOW BEFORE GOD

ALMIGHTY -- AND PUT THAT

NAME IN THERE, NAME THE

PERSON OR PERSONS.

I FORGIVE, AND I ASK, LORD,

THAT YOU WOULD BLESS -- PUT

THE NAME IN.

THAT YOUR BLESSING WOULD

COME UPON THEM.

AND THAT THEY MAY KNOW YOUR

FORGIVENESS EVEN AS I KNOW

IT.

SO, LORD, I RECEIVE YOUR

FORGIVENESS RIGHT NOW.

AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

CLEANSED ME.

AND I ASK TO ENTER INTO

MIRACLE POWER FROM THIS

MOMENT ON.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, YOU

MIGHT WANT TO CALL IN AND

TELL SOMEBODY ABOUT IT.

IT'S A WONDERFUL THING.

I'VE GOT A LITTLE BOOKLET

HERE.

WE'VE GOT INTERESTING THINGS

TAKEN FROM BOOKS I'VE

WRITTEN AND SO FORTH.

THIS ONE IS CALLED

"FORGIVENESS," AND YOU ARE

FREE.

THANK GOD YOU'RE FREE.

DON'T PICK THAT THING UP

AGAIN.

YOU'RE FREE.

YOU'RE FREE TO LOVE.

YOU'RE FREE TO LIVE.

YOU'RE FREE TO GET ON WITH

YOUR LIFE.

IF YOU WANT TO CALL IN, THE

NUMBER IS THERE ON YOUR

SCREEN.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS, PAT.

A POWERFUL PRAYER.

STILL AHEAD, WE'VE GOT YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

HANNAH SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND

I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR A

HEALING MIRACLE FOR HIS BODY

FOR OVER FOUR YEARS, BUT HE

IS GETTING WORSE.

WHY HASN'T MY HUSBAND

RECEIVED HIS HEALING YET?"

WE'LL "BRING IT ON" WITH

HANNAH'S QUESTION AND MUCH

MORE, COMING UP.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

VIRGINIA COULD SOON BEGIN

ISSUING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

LICENSES THIS THURSDAY,

UNLESS THE U.S. SUPREME

COURT INTERVENES.

ATTORNEYS HAVE ASKED THE

HIGH COURT TO STAY THE

DECISION BY A LOWER COURT TO

STRIKE DOWN A VOTER-APPROVED

BAN ON GAYMARRIAGE.

IN A SIMILAR CASE, SAME-SEX

COUPLES IN ARKANSAS ARE

ASKING THE SUPREME COURT TO

LET GAY MARRIAGES GO

FORWARD.

A JUDGE IN LITTLE ROCK THREW

OUT THE BAN ON SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE IN MAY.

MORE THAN 500 SAME-SEX

COUPLES RECEIVED MARRIAGE

LICENSES BEFORE THE STATE

ISSUED AN EMERGENCY STAY.

MASSIVE EVACUATIONS ARE

UNDER WAY IN CENTRAL

CALIFORNIA, DUE TO

FAST-MOVING WILDFIRES.

PEOPLE IN SOME 13,000 HOMES

AND BUSINESSES HAVE BEEN

TOLD TO GET OUT AS A

1200-ACRE WILDFIRE THREATENS

THE AREA.

EVACUATION ORDERS HAVE ALSO

BEEN ISSUED TO FOUR HOTELS

IN THE COMMUNITY OF

OAKHURST, ABOUT 16 MILES

AWAY FROM THE ENTRANCE TO

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK.

CLASSES FOR MOST OF THAT

SCHOOL DISTRICT WERE

CANCELLED TODAY.

REMEMBER YOU CAN ALWAYS GET

THE LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PATAND WENDY ARE BACK WITH

MORE OF "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WELL, WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME FOR YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, AND WE'VE GOT A

GOOD ONE TO START IT OFF.

HANNAH WRITES, "MY HUSBAND

AND I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR

A HEALING MIRACLE FOR HIS

BODY FOR OVER FOUR YEARS.

OTHER PEOPLE HAVE RECEIVED A

HEALING FOR A MIRACLE, BUT

EVERY TIME WE PRAY FOR HIS

HEALING, HE SEEMS TO BE

GETTING WORSE.

THE DOCTORS DON'T KNOW WHAT

IS WRONG, AND EVERY TIME WE

GO, WE GET A DIFFERENT

DIAGNOSIS.

MY QUESTION IS THIS: DOES

GOD CHOOSE ONLY CERTAIN

PEOPLE TO HEAL?

AND IF NOT, WHY HASN'T MY

HUSBAND RECEIVED HIS HEALING

YET?"

Pat: KATHRYN KOMAN HAD

A GREAT MINISTRY OF HEALING,

AND SHE SAID ONE DAY SHE IS

GOING TO FIND OUT WHY SOME

PEOPLE ARE NOT HEALED.

THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF THAT

GOES ON IN PEOPLE'S MINDS.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE FAITH, YOU

DON'T GET HEALED.

IF THERE IS SIN IN YOUR

LIFE, YOU DON'T GET HEALED.

IF YOU'RE NOT DOING IT

PROPERLY, YOU'RE NOT

SPEAKING THE WORD.

BUT IT IS NOT PICKING SOME

PEOPLE TO GET HEALED AND

SOME NOT.

HE WANTS EVERYBODY TO BE

HEALED, AND HE HAS GIVEN US

THE POWER.

AND HE SAID, SPEAK THE

WORD.

I RECOMMEND YOU READ THE

GOSPEL VERY CAREFULLY AND

SEE WHAT JESUS DID, AND TRY

TO FOLLOW THE WAY HE DID

IT.

AGAIN, IS SEARCH YOUR

HEART.

IS THERE LACK OF

FORGIVENESS?

THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO

ENJOY THEIR SICKNESS.

I KNOW IT IS TERRIBLE TO

SAY, BUT THERE IS EXCUSE NOT

TO COMPETE.

I'D LOVE TO COMPETE, BUT MY

LUMBAGO HAS GOT ME.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU OR

YOUR HUSBAND OR ANYBODY

ELSE, BUT SEARCH YOUR

HEART.

Wendy: A VIEWER WHITES

WRITES IN, "IS TITHING JUST

AN OLD TESTAMENT LAW?

CHURCHES BELIEVE IT IS FOR

NOW, BUT I CANNOT SEE IT IN

THE NEW TESTAMENT.

IF YOU DON'T PAY TITHES, IS

THAT WHY CERTAIN CHRISTIANS

ARE IN FINANCIAL

DIFFICULTIES.

WE HAVE PAID TITHES, BUT

THEN CERTAIN OF OUR BILLS

COULD NOT BE PAID.

I'M CONFUSED.

WILL YOU HELP ME UNDERSTAND,

PLEASE."

Pat: GOD LOVES A

CHEERFUL GIVER.

WE GIVE OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE

FROM GOD, WHAT HE HAS GIVEN

US.

TITHE WAS IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT AND IN THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

THERE WERE THREE TITHES, ONE

WAS 30%.

THEY HAD VARIOUS THINGS.

THE WORK OF THE LORD NEEDS

MONEY TO GO FORTH, THE

MISSIONARY WORK, THE

RELIGIOUS WORK, THE

CHURCHES -- IT NEEDS MONEY.

AND GOD HAS ORDAINED THAT

THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE IN

THAT WOULD GIVE.

AND GIVING IS PART OF OUR

LIFE.

AS WE GIVE UNTO THE LORD, HE

GIVES BACK TO US.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO

YOU, PRESSED DOWN, RUNNING

OVER.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID, AND

THAT'S NEW TESTAMENT.

SO OUT OF A CHEERFUL

HEART -- BUT THE TITHE, IN

MY OPINION, IS THE MINIMUM.

THAT'S THE MINIMUM.

THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT

WOULD ASK YOU TO GIVE 50% BY

THE WAY AND YOU CAN GET IT

OFF YOUR TAXES.

Wendy: REBECCA WRITES

IN, "I HAVE A 10 MONTH OLD

SON AND HIS FATHER AND I

LIVE TOGETHER OUT OF

WEDLOCK.

GOD HAS TOUCHED MY HEART.

I AM TRYING TO DO RIGHT BY

GOD.

DO I WAIT FOR GOD TO TOUCH

MY SON'S FATHER HEART, OR DO

I MOVE AWAY FROM HIM, EVEN

THOUGH IN EVERY WAY BESIDES

MARRIAGE, HE IS DOING HIS

PART FOR OUR SON.

I JUST DON'T WANT OUR PAST

SINS TO MISGUIDE MY SON."

Pat: I KNOW THIS SOUNDS

HARD, BUT IF YOU AND A GUY

OR SLEEPING TOGETHER AND

HAVING SEX TOGETHER AND

YOU'RE NOT MARRIED, THE

BIBLE CALLS IT FORNICATION

AND IT'S A SIN.

WHY IN THE WORLD DON'T YOU

GET MARRIED?

HE IS APPARENTLY A GOOD MAN,

A GOOD FATHER, A GOOD

PROVIDER, WHY DON'T YOU GET

MARRIED?

WHAT'S THE DEAL?

GO DOWN TO THE COURTHOUSE

AND GET A LICENSE.

IF YOU NEED, A JUSTICE OF

THE PEACE.

THAT'S ALL YOU'VE GOT TO

DO.

SO WHAT'S SO HARD ABOUT

THAT?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

BUT THE ANSWER IS, IF YOU

CONTINUE IN THAT

RELATIONSHIP OF COMMON

LAW -- I MEAN IF YOU'RE NOT

COMMITTED FOR LIFE, THEN

IT'S SIN AND IT'S NOT A GOOD

THING.

IT'S GOING TO HURT YOU AND

YOUR CHILD.

BUT HOPEFULLY YOU CAN GET IT

RECONCILED.

IT WOULD BE HARD TO WALK

AWAY FROM A GOOD MAN, A GOOD

PROVIDER.

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY

PEOPLE WON'T GO FORWARD WITH

SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS

MARRIAGE.

Wendy: JUST RUN DOWN TO

THE COURTHOUSE.

CHELSEA WRITES IN, "I WAS

SAVED AT THE AGE OF 14 AND

WENT TO CHURCH AND YOUTH

GROUP UNTIL WE MOVED.

AFTER THAT, MY LIFE GOT

CHAOTIC AND I STOPPED GOING

TO CHURCH.

RECENTLY I HAD DOUBTS ABOUT

THE CHURCH.

MAINLY IT IS BECAUSE HOW I

WAS JUDGED AFTER HAVING TWO

CHILDREN BEFORE THE AGE OF

20.

I'VE BECOME INTERESTED IN

WICCA -- DO YOU HAVE ANY

ADVICE FOR ME?"

Pat: WICCA IS WHITE

WITCHCRAFT AND IT IS

SINFUL.

COME BACK TO THE LORD.

YOU HAD TWO KIDS BEFORE THE

AGE OF 20 AND YOU'RE NOT

MARRIED?

YEAH, THE CHURCH MAY HAVE

BEEN HARD ON YOU, BUT GOD

LOVES YOU AND HE WANTS YOU

TO COME HOME.

HE WANTS TO PUT HIS ARM

AROUND YOU AND LOVE YOU.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO BACK TO

THE SAME CHURCH YOU WERE

INVOLVED IN BEFORE.

FIND SOME PLACE WHERE THEY

LOVE YOU.

THEY WILL LOOK AFTER YOU AND

YOUR KIDS.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO INTO A

BIG SPIEL ABOUT WHAT YOU DID

WRONG.

YOU LIVE FOR THE LORD.

BUT DON'T GO INTO WICCA.

DON'T GO INTO SOME STRANGE

THING.

GOD LOVES YOU.

GET THE BIBLE, AND LOOK AT

JOHN 3: 16, AND READ THE

PROMISES OF GOD IN THERE FOR

YOU, AND LET THE SPIRIT OF

GOD BEGIN TO TALK IN YOUR

HEART.

HE LOVES YOU AND HE WANTS

YOU HOME.

HE WANTS TO PUT HIS ARMS

AROUND YOU AND HUG AND BRING

YOU TO HIMSELF.

Wendy: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE.

GREAT ANSWERS, AND GREAT

QUESTIONS.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR WRITING

IN.

RIGHT NOW I WANT YOU TO MEET

A WOMAN NAMED HONEY SMITH.

SHE WAS IN AGONY.

A HIDEOUS RASH COVERED HER

BODY, BURNING HER AND

CAUSING LARGE CHUNKS OF HER

SKIN TO FALL OFF.

DOCTORS COULDN'T HELP HER,

AND AFTER TWO MONTHS OF

SUFFERING, SHE HAD ALMOST

GIVEN UP HOPE.

I STARTED GETTING A RASH

ON MY ARM, AND IT GOT WORSE

AND WORSE.

AND AFTER A FEW WEEKS, IT

WAS ON BOTH FEET, BOTH

KNEES, AND STARTED ON THIS

ARM.

Reporter: OVER TIME

HONEY SMITH SUFFERED EVEN

MORE AS HER RASH SPREAD AND

INTENSIFIED.

I'VE NEVER SEEN AN

ALLERGY LIKE THAT IN MY

LIFE, WHERE CHUNKS OF SKIN

FELL OFF.

AND THEN IT HIT MY FACE.

WITHIN TWO OR THREE DAYS, MY

WHOLE FACE WAS SWOLLEN.

MY EYES, I COULDN'T EVEN

OPEN THEM.

Reporter: HONEY VISITED

SEVERAL DOCTORS FOR

ANSWERS.

THEY DECIDED TO TREAT HER

FOR BURNS AND AN ALLERGY,

BUT COULDN'T DETERMINE WHAT

WAS CAUSING HER RASH.

MEDICINE OFFERED NO RELIEF

FOR THE PAIN.

I DIDN'T SLEEP FOR TWO

MONTHS.

MAYBE 10 MINUTES AND 15

MINUTES AT A TIME.

I HAD GOTTEN TO THE POINT

WHERE I CAN'T DEAL WITH

THIS, AND MY HOPE WAS GONE.

I WASN'T PRAYING ANYMORE;

WAS BEGGING.

I SAID, GOD, DO SOMETHING.

Reporter: IN AUGUST OF

2013, DURING A PAINFUL AND

SLEEPLESS NIGHT, HONEY WAS

FLIPPING THROUGH THE

CHANNELS AND LANDED ON "THE

700 CLUB."

THIS WAS MAYBE 2:30 IN

THE MORNING, AND JUST AS I

SWITCHED IT, A FEW SECONDS

LATER, PAT SAID --

Pat: THERE IS SOMEBODY

WHO HAS GOT SOMETHING ALL

OVER YOUR FACE.

IT IS SORT OF A WEIRD

DISEASE.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE A BURN,

BUT IT ISN'T.

IT COVERS YOUR FACE.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR FACE

RIGHT NOW AND WIPE YOU'RE

HAND ACROSS YOUR FAITH.

GOD JUST HEALED YOU,

COMPLETELY RESTORED YOUR

SKIN, LIKE A BABY'S, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

I HIT THE RECORD BUTTON

AND SAT AND WATCHED THAT FOR

HOURS.

THE PAIN WAS BEARABLE.

I COULD ACTUALLY JUST

RELAX.

I WAS JUST THANKING GOD AND

PLAYING IT OVER AND OVER AND

OVER.

Reporter: AFTER THAT

NIGHT, THE RASH HEALED

RAPIDLY.

WITHIN A FEW DAYS, THE

SWELLING WAS GOING DOWN, THE

REDNESS WAS GOING AWAY.

I'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM

WITH IT SINCE.

GOD IS STILL HEALING.

HE IS STILL THERE FOR US.

I HAD GIVEN UP HOPE.

THERE WAS NO HOPE LEFT IN

ME, AND HE RESTORED ALL OF

THAT AND MULTIPLIED IT.

I WANT TO SEE GOD DO THAT

FOR EVERYBODY, WHAT HE DID

FOR ME, BECAUSE HE'S A GOOD

GOD AND HE LOVES US.

I CAN'T LOVE HIM ENOUGH BACK

FOR WHAT HE DID.

Wendy: WOW, THAT IS ONE

OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE

TESTIMONIES I HAVE EVER

HEARD.

Pat: AND IT WAS LIKE A

BURN.

Wendy: AND SHE KNEW IT

WAS FOR HER.

Pat: THIS LADY IS

TERESA, AND SHE WAS HAVING A

PINCHED NERVE FOR FIVE

MONTHS AND THAT CAUSED PAIN

IN HER SHOULDER, HANDS, AND

FINGERS.

THE DOCTORS SAID HERE IS

PAIN MEDICATION AND IT

DIDN'T HELP.

ONE DAY SHE HEARD YOU,

WENDY, SAYING SOMEONE HAS

NERVE PAIN DOWN YOUR ARM AND

TO YOUR FINGERS.

THE LORD IS TOUCHING YOU NOW

AND IT IS GIVING YOU PEACE

AND YOU ARE HEALED.

TERESA SAID THAT IS ME, AND

SHE HAD IMMEDIATE HEALING

AND NOW SHE CONTINUES TO

REJOICE.

Wendy: I LOVE THAT.

Pat: WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY TOGETHER.

WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT HONEY

AND HER FACE.

GOD KNEW ABOUT IT.

GOD KNEW.

HE KNOWS YOUR NAME, WHAT YOU

LOOK LIKE, AND HE KNOWS

EVERY MOLE, EVERY BLEMISH,

AND EVERY GOOD PART.

HE WANTS TO HEAL YOU RIGHT

NOW.

PLEASE PRAY WITH ME.

FATHER, WENDY AND I JOIN

TOGETHER.

WE PRAY TOGETHER IN THE NAME

OF JESUS, AND WE SPEAK THE

WORD OF FAITH IN THE NAME OF

JESUS CHRIST.

A WHIPLASH HAS JUST BEEN

HEALED.

AND THAT MUSCLE IS HEALED.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR NECK,

AND THE THING IS JUST

COMPLETELY HEALED.

MOVE YOUR NECK AROUND.

YOU ARE TOTALLY HEALED.

WENDY?

Wendy: LOTS OF PEOPLE

WITH ARTHRITIS AND DIFFERENT

LEVELS OF PAIN, AND GOD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOWMENT

ANNOW.

AND SOME OF THAT IS TIED TO

UNFORGIVENESS, SO FORGIVE

WHO YOU NEED TO FORGIVE, AND

YOU'RE GOING TO BE HEALED IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: YOU BURNED YOUR

MOUTH AND YOUR THROAT, YOU

SWALLOWED SOMETHING REALLY

HOT, AND YOUR SUFFERING AND

CRYING OUT TO GOD RIGHT

NOW.

THE LORD JUST HANDLED YOU,

AND YOU'LL FEEL COOL ALL THE

WAY THROUGH YOUR MOUTH, AND

YOU ARE TOTALLY HEALED IN

JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: SOMEBODY, YOU'RE

SUFFERING HAIR LOSS, AND

IT'S A MEDICAL CONDITION,

AND THERE ARE BIG PATCHES

WHERE THERE IS NO HAIR.

RIGHT NOW THE LORD IS

TOUCHING YOUR HEAD, AND

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL THE

ANOINTING THAT IS ALL OVER

YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL THE

LORD.

HE HAS HEARD YOUR CRY, AND

YOUR HAIR IS GOING TO GROW

BACK, BETTER THAN BEFORE, IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

SHAKING -- I BELIEVE IT IS

PARKINSON'S.

IT IS SHAKING -- THEY CALL

IT A PALSY, AND IT'S

PARKINSON'S, AND RIGHT NOW

GOD HAS REACHED INTO YOUR

BRAIN AND HIT THOSE CENTERS,

AND YOU WILL NOT HAVE THAT

SHAKING ANYMORE.

THAT PARKINSON'S IS HEALED

IN JESUS' MAR LU MARVELOUS

NAME.

I BELIEVE THE NAME IS DOC,

AND YOU ARE HEALED.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

CALL US.

WE'VE GOT PEOPLE ON THE

PHONE PRAYING.

THEY'RE THERE ALL DAY LONG.

YOU CAN CALL IN, AND

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO CARES

ABOUT YOU, AND THEY'LL BE

GLAD TO JOIN WITH YOU.

SO RIGHT NOW WE'RE GOING TO

LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S POWER

MINUTE FROM PSALM 145: "HE

WILL FULFILL THE DESIRE OF

THOSE WHO FEAR HIM.

HE ALSO WILL HEAR THEIR CRY

AND SAVE THEM.

THE LORD PRESERVES ALL WHO

LOVE HIM."

WELL, FOR WENDY AND ALL OF

US HERE AT CBN, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU

A STORY THAT IS REALLY SAD,

DOCTORS WHO CAN'T AFFORD TO

STAY IN PRIVATE PRACTICE

ANYMORE, MORE FALLOUT FROM

OBAMACARE.

WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THAT

TOMORROW.

DON'T MISS IT.

WE'LL SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
