The 700 Club - August 29, 2014

Drugs, alcohol, and sex were Deanna’s coping mechanism when life got painful, but inside she remained desperate. Plus, a group of unlikely investors take Superbook to a Ukrainian village. Read Transcript


GUESS WHERE THIS IS

HAPPENING?

WITH PATROLS IN THE STREET,

AND 9-YEAR-OLD AND

10-YEAR-OLD GIRLS GETTING

MARRIED.

THIS IS COMING DIRECTLY

FROM THE QURAN.

Wendy: THE ANSWER MAY

SURPRISE YOU.

AND THEN...

I'M SORRY TO TELL YOU, IT

LACKLOOKS LIKE YOUR SON MAY

HAVE AUTISM.

Wendy: A SON WHO

COULDN'T SPEAK RISES TO THE

TOP OF THE CLASS.

GOD DID THE MIRACULOUS.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE LEADERS OF UKRAINE SAY

RUSSIA HAS LAUNCHED A

FULL-SCALE INVASION OF THEIR

COUNTRY.

SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW

THOUSANDS OF RUSSIAN TROOPS

HAVE CROSSED INTO

SOUTHEASTERN UKRAINE.

Terry: AND NOW UKRAINE

IS GETTING READY TO DRAFT

SOLDIERS TO FIGHT RUSSIA,

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL

HAVE TO DECIDE HIS NEXT

MOVE.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

STORY.

George: RUSSIA TOOK

ANOTHER BITE OUT OF

UKRAINE.

IT IS AN ABSOLUTELY

CLEAR-CUT CASE OF A LARGER

COMPANY BULLYING A SMALLER

COUNTRY.

George: THEY CAPTURED

THE KEY PORT TOWN OWN

NOVOSK.

SATELLITE IMAGES SHOW MORE

THAN 1,000 RUSSIAN TROOPS

ARE OPERATING INSIDE

SOUTHEASTERN UKRAINE, BUT IT

IS ONLY THE TIP OF THE

ICEBERG.

THERE ARE CLAIMS AS MANY AS

15,000 RUSSIAN SOLDIERS HAVE

BEEN SENT TO THE LUHANSK AND

DONETSK REGIONS.

AND UKRAINE HAS ORDERED

TROOPS TO COUNTER WHAT THE

COUNTRY SAYS IS AN EXTREMELY

DIFFICULT THREAT.

AND WE HAVE DETECTED

LARGE QUANTITIES OF LARGE

WEAPONS, INCLUDING AIR

DEFENSE SYSTEMS, ARTILLERY,

TANKS, AND ARMORED PERSONNEL

CARRIERS BEING CARRIED TO

SEPARATIST FORCES IN EASTERN

UKRAINE.

George: THIS NEW FRONT

IN THE SOUTHEAST OPENS A

PROSPECT THAT SEPARATISTS

ARE TRYING TO CREATE A LAND

LINK BETWEEN RUSSIA AND

CRIMEA.

IF THIS HAPPENS, THE KREMLIN

WILL CONTROL THE SEA OF

ASHOF, WHICH HAS LARGE

ASSETSMENT.

> ASSETS.

PUTIN AND HIS INNER

CIRCLE ARE WILLING TO TAKE

ON A LOT OF ECONOMIC

DAMAGE.

THEY SEE THIS AS KIND OF A

FIGHT THEY'RE WILLING TO GO

AT IT.

George: PRESIDENT OBAMA

AVOIDED CALLING PUTIN'S

ACTIONS AN INVASION AND SAID

A MILITARY CONFRONTATION

WITH RUSSIA WASN'T IN THE

CARDS.

President Obama: WE ARE

NOT TAKING MILITARY ACTION

TO SOLVE THE JOORKZ

UKRAINIAN PROBLEM.

WHAT WE'RE DOING IS TO

MOBILIZE THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY TO AP MY PRESSURE

ON RUSSIA.

George: ANALYSTS ARE

WARNING THAT RUSSIA'S NEXT

TARGET COULD BE THE NEXT KEY

PORT CITY.

THEY WANT TO STOP ANY

POTENTIAL OF A LAND OPENING

PORTO CRIMEA.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: THAT IS THE

GOAL HERE, AND PUTIN IS

PLAYING A STRATEGIC GAME.

HE IS TRYING TO OPEN A LAND

BRIDGE TO CRIMEA TO SUPPORT

THE MILITARY BASES O OF

ASTAPOL.

HE WANTS A LAND BRIDGE IN

ORDER TO GET TO THAT

STRATEGIC PORT, SOMETHING

RUSSIA HAS LONG WANTED, A

WARM-WATER PORT.

THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A

STRATEGIC GOAL OF THAT

NATION.

IN THE WEST, PAY ATTENTION

TO THE LANGUAGE BEING USED.

AS LONG AS GERMANY IS SAYING

INCURSION, AS LONG AS THE

UNITED STATES IS SAYING

"INCURSION," I DON'T SEE

NATO GETTING INVOLVED.

I DON'T SEE THE U.S. GETTING

INVOLVED MILITARILY.

BUT THE UKRAINE IS INVOLVED

MILITARILY, AND I THINK THE

LONG-LASTING EFFECT OF THIS

WAR IS THAT UKRAINE IS GOING

TO ARM ITSELF, AND ARM

ITSELF SIGNIFICANTLY IN

ORDER TO STOP THIS KIND OF

ACTIVITY.

NOT JUST NOW, BUT IN THE

FUTURE.

REALIZE IT IS THE SIZE OF

GERMANE, AN GERMANY, AND IF

IT REALLY WANTS TO BE ARMED,

IT HAS THE ABILITY TO DO

THAT.

AND THAT CREATES LONG-TERM

STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE U.S.

INTELLIGENCE IS PICKING UP

SIGNS OF ONLINE CHATTER

AMONG ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.

AS THE ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11

GETS CLOSER, JOHN JESSUP HAS

THAT STORY.

John: CURRENT AND

FORMER U.S. INTELLIGENCE SAY

THE JIHADI CHATTER HAS

PICKED UP ON THE PHONE

LINES.

THEY HAVE NOTICED AN

INCREASE AMONG THE TERRORIST

ORGANIZATIONS OVERSEAS.

THEY CAN'T TELL IF THERE IS

AN ATTACK BEING PLANNED.

SOME SAY TERRORISTS FROM

BOTH al-QAEDA AND ISIS

BADLY WANT TO LAUNCH AN

ATTACK.

YOU CAN FIND A LINK TO THIS

STORY AT OUR WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

WELL, PRESIDENT OBAMA FACES

SEVERE CRITICISM OVER HIS

STATEMENT THAT HIS

ADMINISTRATION STILL DOESN'T

HAVE A STRATEGY FOR

DEFEATING ISIS TERRORISTS,

WHO MURDERED TENS OF

THOUSANDS IN SYRIA AND

IRAQ.

President Obama: THE

SUGGESTION SEEMS TO BE THAT

WE'RE ABOUT TO GO FULL-SCALE

ON AN ELABORATE STRATEGY FOR

DEFEATING ISIS.

I DON'T WANT TO PUT THE CART

BEFORE THE HORSE.

WE DON'T HAVE A STRATEGY

YET.

John: THE PRESIDENT DID

ACKNOWLEDGE HE IS STILL

CONSIDERING MILITARY ACTION

IN SYRIA, AS WELL AS IRAQ.

OTHERS IN THIS

ADMINISTRATION HAVE BEEN

VOCAL ABOUT THE NEED TO

MOVE.

EVEN DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS

ARE CALLING ON THE

ADMINISTRATION TO TAKE

ACTION.

FLORIDA SENATOR BILL NELSON,

JUST BACK FROM TURKEY, SAYS

THE U.S. NEEDS TO HAVE A

MILITARY PLAN.

SOONER OR LATER WE'VE GOT

TO TAKE THE FIGHT TO ISIS,

IN ADDITION TO WHAT WE'RE

DOING IN NORTHERN IRAQ IN

PROTECTING THE KURDS IN

KURDISTAN.

BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL

WITH IT.

John: NELSON SAYS THE

U.S. CAN'T AVOID BOOTS ON

THE GROUND IN SYRIA BY

COORDINATING WITH A FREE

SYRIAN ARMY.

SO FAR THREE MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE LEFT SYRIA, FLEEING THE

CIVIL WAR THAT HAS TORN THE

COUNTRY APART.

TO PUT THAT INTO

PERSPECTIVE, THAT AMOUNTS TO

ONE OUT OF EVERY EIGHT

SYRIANS WHO HAVE LEFT.

THE U.N. HIGH COMMISSION OR

REFUGEES SAYS THE SYRIAN

CRISIS HAS BECOME THE

BIGGEST HUMANITARIAN

EMERGENCY OF OUR ERA, AND

THE WORLD IS FAILING TO MEET

THE NEEDS OF REFUGEES AND

THE COUNTRIES HOSTING THEM.

NORTHERN IRAQ IS FACING ITS

OWN REFUGEE CRISIS AS

THOUSANDS OF YAZIDIS HAVE

FLED TO KURDISTAN TO ESCAPE

THE TORTURE OF THE ISLAMIC

STATE.

AND GARY LANE BRINGS US

MOREMENT.

Reporter: 182,000

REFUGEES HAVE SOUGHT SOLACE

IN SYRIA.

TURKEY IS VERY CLOSE,

SEVERAL KILOMETRES AWAY, AND

MANY YAZIDI WHO HAVE COME

HERE SAY THEY PREFER TO GO

TO TURKEY, BECAUSE THEY SAY

THEY CAN NO LONGER LIVE WITH

MUSLIM ARABS.

ONE LEADER TOLD US HUNDREDS

OF MUSLIM NEIGHBORS TURNED

AGAINST HIS PEOPLE WHEN THE

ISLAMIC FIGHTERS ARRIVED IN

SINJAR.

THEY JOINED WITH THEM AND

TOOK AWAY OUR FEMALES,

CHILDREN, OLD MEN,

EVERYTHING.

EVEN IF WE GOT BACK OUR

HOMES, WE CANNOT LIVE WITH

THE ARABS BECAUSE THEY'RE

USUALLY TRYING TO PERSECUTE

US.

Reporter: THIS REFUGEE

SPENT EIGHT DAYS TRAPPED ON

SINJAR MOUNTAIN.

HE SAYS HE WITNESSED

TERRORISTS KILL 170 YAZIDI

MEN, AND THEN TAKE THEIR

WIVES AND DAUGHTERS AWAY TO

BE SOLD OR USED AS SEX

SLAVES.

HE SAYS HE WANTS NOTHING TO

DO WITH ISLAM BECAUSE OF

ISIS, AND THE ATROCITIES

CONSIDERED BY MUSLIMS HE

ONCE CONSIDERED FRIENDS.

HE WAS ATTRACTED TO

CHRISTIANITY BECAUSE OF THE

KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY OF

CBC'S.

> CHRISTIANS.

PIE CAN

THE DIFFERENCE IS THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARTH AND

SKY AND HEAVEN.

WE REALLY SAW THE REAL

HUMANITY OF THE CHRISTIANS'

LIVES.

Reporter: THE YAZIDI

REFUGEES ARE LOOKING TO THE

KURDS AND CHRISTIANS FOR

HELP.

WE ARE HERE TO SHOW YOU

HAVE NOT BEEN ABANDONED.

KNOWING THAT MANY YAZIDIS

DIED ON MOUNTAIN SINJAR

LACKING CLEAN WATER, WE HAVE

TAKEN THE INITIATIVE TO

BRING WATER TANKS TO THE

YAZIDIS IN ORDER TO DRINK

AND SURVIVE.

Reporter: CBN PROVIDED

EIGHT TANKS, DOUBLING THE

NUMBER OF EXISTING WATER

TANKS FOR NEARLY 4,000

REFUGEES LIVING IN THESE

UNFINISHED OFFICE

BUILDINGS.

WE HEARD THAT YOU ARE IN

NEED OF BLANKETS.

THESE BLANKETS ARE GIFTS AND

RELIEF FOR THE YAZIDI

PEOPLE, FROM THE CHURCH IN

AMERICA AND FROM AMERICAN

BELIEVERS.

AND PEOPLE ARE THINKING OF

YOU AND PRAYING TO GOD FOR

YOU.

Reporter: SHAMO IS

THANKFUL, AND ASK THAT

AMERICAN CHRISTIANS CONTINUE

TO AS SEST AN -- ASSIST AND

PRAY FOR THE YAZIDIS.

PLEASE, IF YOU CAN

PROTECT US, PROVIDE US

INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION, OR

TAKE US OUT OF THE COUNTRY

BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TO

GIVE OUR CHILDREN AND OUR

WOMEN ANYMORE.

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE

YAZIDI PEOPLE TO COME TO

CHRIST, JUST LIKE ME.

Reporter: CHANGED

HEARTS AND LIVES, AND CBN

PARTNERS BRING CLEAN

BLANKETS AND WATER FOR LIFE,

LIVING WATER FOR ETERNITY.

AND WE DO THESE THINGS IN

THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS, ZACHO, IRAQ.

GORDON, THAT'S A GLIMMER

OF GOOD NEWS IN THE MIDDLE

OF SO MUCH SUFFERING.

Gordon: WE WANT TO

PROVIDE MORE GOOD NEWS FOR

THESE REFUGEES.

IF YOU WANT TO BE APORT O A

PART OF IT, ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO IS GIVE TO THE "700

CLUB."

THE ADDRESS IS ON THE

SCREEN, OR YOU YOU CAN CALL

US, 1-800-759-0700, OR YOU

CAN LOG ON TO CBN.COM.

AND YOU YO CAN DESIGNATE

YOUR GIFT.

TERRTERRY?

Terry: SHARI'A LAWS OR

COMING O TH TO THE STREETS

OF BRITAIN.

MEET A MAN WHO IS FIGHTING

BACK WITH THE BIBLE.

WE REJECT THE FALSE

PROPHET MOHAMMED AND READ

THE BIBLE.

Terry: WE'LL TAKE YOU

INSIDE THE U.K. FOR A LOOK

AT THE RISE OF BRITISH

JIHADISTS, AND WHAT IS BEING

DONE TO BRING THEM DOWN.

Gordon: ISLAM HAS BEEN

A GROWING FORCE IN BRITAIN

FOR YEARS, AND MUSLIMS HAVE

TAKEN OVER SOME PARTS OF THE

COUNTRY.

NOW A GROUP OF BRITISH

CITIZENS IS FIGHTING BACK,

AND THEY'RE PASSING OUT

BIBLES, EVEN IN MOSQUES.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY FROM

LONDON.

Reporter: NO ONE WHO

HAS BEEN PAYING ATTENTION TO

THE GROWTH OF RADICAL ISLAM

IN BRITAIN SHOULD HAVE BEEN

SURPRISED THAT THE

TERRORISTS WHO STOOD OVER

AMERICAN JOURNALIST JAMES

FOLEY WAS REPORTED TO HAVE A

LONDON ACCENT.

OVER A THOUSAND BRITISH

MUSLIMS ARE FIGHTING FOR THE

ISLAMIC STATE, AND MORE ARE

JOINING EVERY DAY.

THE KEY THING TO REALIZE

IS THEY'RE NOT THERE TO TAKE

A BACK SEAT ROLE.

THEY'RE VERY MUCH ON THE

FOREFRONT OF THIS CONFLICT.

Reporter: BRITAIN IS

NOW A MAJOR EXPORT OF

TERRORISTS.

THERE HAVE BEEN WARNING

SIGNS FOR YEARS.

THIS WAS A MUSLIM PROTEST IN

LONDON CBN NEWS BROUGHT TO

VIEWERS MORE THAN EIGHT

YEARS AGO.

GET ON THE FLOOR!

[YELLING]

JIHAD IS ON ITS WAY!

Reporter: TODAY BRITAIN

HAS FUNCTIONING SHARI'A

COURTS, AND SHARI'A LAWS

ENFORCE SOME OF THE LAWS IN

THE STREETS.

REMOVE YOURSELF AWAY FROM

THE MOSQUE.

NOW.

Reporter: ISLAMIC CALAL

FOOD IS EVERYWHERE.

AND ISLAM IS THE FASTEST

GROWING RELIGION IN THE

U.K.

I GAVE UP MY CAREER FOR

ISLAM.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

MUSLIMS ARE RELATIVELY SMALL

MINORITY IN BRITAIN, THERE

IS A FEELING AMONG SOME

BRITISH THAT THEIR NATION IS

BEING HANDED OVER TO ISLAM.

THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T

CARE ABOUT PROMOTING

TRADITIONAL BRITISH VALUES,

JUDEO CHRISTIAN VALUES,

EITHER BECAUSE IT DOESN'T

BELIEVE IN THEM ANYMORE OR

IT DOESN'T WANT TO BE

LABELLED AS INTOLERANT.

BRITISH CIVILIZATION HAS

BEEN A GIFT TO THE WORLD.

BUT THE BRITISH DON'T CARE

SO MUCH ABOUT THEIR OWN IS

CIVILIZATION ANYMORE, AND IT

IS IN THIS VACUUM THAT THE

ISLAMISTS ARE OCCUPYING.

THEY WANT TO BUILD A PARL

PARALLEL SOCIETY IN THIS

BASICALLY CHRISTIAN NATURE.

THERE IS AN UNDERLYING

SELF-HATRED OF OUR OWN

SOCIETY.

WE HAVE GOT THIS

MULTI-CULTURELISM IN

BRITAIN, AND IT IS KILLING.

THEY CONTINUE TO PUSH FOR

IT, EVEN THOUGH IT KNOWS,

EVEN THOUGH IT CAN SEE THAT

IT IS KILLING GIRLS.

WE KNOW FOR A FACT THERE ARE

MOSQUES IN THIS COUNTRY

WHERE LITTLE GIRLS, 8,, 10

YEARS OF AGE ARE BEING

MARRIED TO OLDER MAN AND

BEING RAPED.

Reporter: WHEN LEE

RIGBY WAS DECAPITATED IN THE

STREETS OF LONDON, ONE OF

THE PRIME THINGS PRIME

MINISTER DAVID CAMERON SAID

WAS THAT THE MURDER WAS NOT

BECAUSE OF ISLAM.

AND TO BE SURE, MANY BRITISH

MUSLIMS HAVE CONDEMNED THE

MURDER.

AS A MUSLIM, I FEEL IT

SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN.

I THINK IT IS

DISGUSTING.

I THINK THAT A LOT OF

EXTREMISTS HAVE TAKEN OVER

AND HIJACKED ISLAM.

IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH

ISLAM.

BUT THE POINT IS, THIS STUFF

IS COMING DIRECTLY FROM THE

QURAN.

Reporter: MUSLIM

IMMIGRANT SEX GROOMING GANGS

WERE COVERED UP BY THE

BRITISH POLICE FOR 20

YEARS.

THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT'S

WEAK RESPONSE TO RADICAL

ISLAM HAS LED TO THE

FORMATION OF CITIZEN GROUPS

AND PROTEST MOMENTS, LIKE

THE ENGLISH DEFENSE LEAGUE

AND BRITAIN FIRST.

BRITAIN FIRST GOES INTO THE

STREET TO CONFRONT SHARI'A

PATROLS, AND HAS HORRIFIED

THE BRITISH ESTABLISHMENTS

FOR HAVING THE NERVE FOR

GOING INTO MOSQUES TO PASS

OUT BIBLES TO MUSLIMS.

SPREAD THE WORD OF JESUS

CHRIST.

JESUS CHRIST, OR LORD, WHAT

SAVED YOU FROM HELL.

WE REJECT THE FALSE PROPHET

MOHAMMED AND READ THE

BIBLE.

Reporter: THE CHAIRMAN

OF "BRITAIN FIRST" IS PAUL

GOLDING.

THIS IS A CHRISTIAN

COUNTRY.

WE TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY.

WE HOLD IT DEARMEN DEAR.

SO GIVING OUT CHRISTIAN

BIBLES IN A CHRISTIAN

COUNTRY ON BRITISH STREETS,

WE DON'T SEE ANK WRON SEE

ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

Reporter: BUT WHEN WE

WERE WITH GOLDING, HE WAS

DODGING THE POLICE, WHO

SEEMS TO VIEW HIM AS A

TROUBLE-MAKER.

THETHE WHOLE WORLD IS NOW

PAYING THE BILL FOR

BRITAIN'S EXPERIMENT IN

MULTI-CULTURISM.

WE HAVE TO START DEALING

WITH THIS AND SAYING, WE

HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

YOU CAN'T KEEP PEOPLE FROM

SPEAKING.

CAN'T STONE WOMEN.

HAVE TO REJECT THAT OR YOU

CAN'T LIVE HERE.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, LONDON.

Gordon: I WANT YOU YOU

TO GET EDUCATED ON ISLAM,

BECAUSE THE NEXT TIME YOU

HEAR A POLITICIAN SAY,

THAT'S NOT REALLY ISLAM,

WHEN SOMEONE IS BEHEADED ON

CAMERA, WHAT'S GOING ON?

WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IS

THEY'RE FOLLOWING THE

QURAN.

THERE IS A BOOKLET I WANT

YOU YOU T TO HAVE.

HERE IS A QUOTE, "427 IS A

CLEAR UNDERPINING FOR THE

21st CENTURY BEHEADINGS

THAT HAVE SHOCKED THE

WORLD."

WHEN YOU THIN THINK

NON-MUSLIMS CUT OFF THEIR

HEADS.

THESE BEHEADINGS ARE

HORRIFIC.

FOR A SOLDIER TO BE BEHEADED

IN A STREET IN LONDON IS

BEYOND BELIEF.

BUT WHAT THOSE MUSLIMS WERE

DOING WAS FOLLOWING THE

STRUCTURES OF THE QURAN.

WHEN YOU SEE ISIS DOING IT

ON VIDEO, AND MEMBERS OF

al-QAEDA DOING IT, WHAT

THEY'RE DOING IS THE PERFECT

ACT SANCTIONED BY THE

QURAN.

THAT'S WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN

THEIR RELIGION.

AND THESE DAYS IT IS NOT

CULTURALLY ACCEPTABLE TO

STAND UP AND SAY YOU'RE

IDEAS ABOUT GOD IS WRONG.

AND WHAT THAT BOOK TELLS

YOU, TO GO BEHEAD PEOPLE, IS

WRONG.

WE NEED TO HAVE THE BOLDNESS

TO SAY IT IS.

EVEN IF QUOTE WI WINSTON

CHURCHILL WHO WROTE THAT

ISLAM IS A RETROGRADE

FORCE -- HE JUST WROTE THAT

AND HE WAS SUBJECTED TO

ARREST FOR INCITING PUBLIC

HATRED, JUST BY SAYING ISLAM

IS A RETROGRADE FORCE.

WE NEED TO GET INFORMED, AND

WE NEED TO COUNTER THESE

IDEAS, THAT THESE IDEAS

ABOUT GOD CONTAINED IN THIS

BOOK WILL LEAD US INTO

CHAOS.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT,

CONFESSIONS OF A GIRL GONE

WILD.

I WAS THE GIRL WHO WAS

DOING THINGS WITH EVER GUY.

I WAS STEALING.

I WAS LYING.

I WAS DRINKING.

I WAS SELLING WEED.

I HAD GIVEN MYSELF AWAY SO

MUCH, IN THE END I FELT MORE

EMPTY.

Terry: HEAR WHY SHE WAS

LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL OF

THE WRONG PLACES, AND WHERE

SHE FINALLY FOUND IT, AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: BY THE TIME

DEANNA HOGAN WAS IN JUNIOR

HIGH, SHE WAS ALREADY

JADED.

SLEEPING WITH BOYFRIEND

AFTER BOYFRIEND MADE HER

FEEL EMPTIER AND EMPTIER

INSIDE.

DEANNA WAS LOOKING IN VAIN

FOR THE LOVE SHE LOST WHEN

SHE WAS SIX YEARS OLD, THE

DAY HER DAD LEFT HOME.

I WOULD ALWAYS ASK MY

PARENTS, WHY DID GUYS GET

DIVORCED?

ARE GOING TO GET BACK

TOGETHER?

DO YOU STILL LOVE MOM?

I REMEMBER FEELING SO MUCH

LOSS.

I MISSED MY DAD SO MUCH.

NEEDING TO HEAR "I LOVE

YOU," OR "YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL,"

IT WAS AS IF THERE WAS THIS

VOID OR THIS ABSENCE.

ABOUT JUNIOR HIGH AGE, WAS

THE GIRL WHO WAS DOING

THINGS WITH EVERY GUY.

I WAS STEALING, I WAS

LYING.

I WAS DRINKING.

I WAS SELLING WEED.

I MEAN, I WAS DOING ALL

SORTS OF THINGS.

I WAS SEARCHING FOR LOVE,

AND I FELT EMPTY INSIDE.

I JUST FELT LIKE IF I COULD

JUST GET THIS GUY TO LIKE

ME, I'LL FEEL LIKE SOMEONE

LOVES ME.

I'LL FEEL ACCEPTED.

BUT IT NEVER SATISFIED ME.

IT WAS JUST ONE PERSON TO

THE NEXT BECAUSE FOR THE

MOMENT, IT FELT LIKE IT

SATISFIED ME.

FOR THE MOMENT I FELT I'M

BEING LOVED RIGHT NOW.

BUT I HAD GIVEN MYSELF AWAY

SO MUCH.

I JUST FELT, YOU'RE NOT

LOVED.

YOU'RE NOT WANTED.

YOU'RE NOT SPECIAL.

IN THE END, I FELT MORE

EMPTY.

I GE GREW UP GOING TO

CHURCH A LITTLE BIT WITH MY

MOM.

AT ONE POINT IN MY TEENAGED

YEARS, I JUST TOLD MY MOM,

I'M NOT GOING ANYMORE.

THIS IS THE STUPIDEST THING

EVER.

IT WAS SO BORING.

IT WAS NOT RELEVANT.

IT WAS JUST READING FROM

SOMETHING YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

AND THEN I MET THIS GUY, AND

HE LATER BECOMES MY

BOYFRIEND.

HE HAS A FAMILY WHO IS

REALLY STRONG CHRISTIANS.

AND HE IS, LIKE, HEY, YOU

WANT TO COME TO CHURCH?

AND I WAS, LIKE, WELL, I

GUESS.

SURE, I'LL GO WITH BECAUSE I

LIKE YOU.

IT WAS LITERALLY SUCH A

NIGHT AND DAY EXPERIENCE FOR

ME.

PEOPLE WERE LIFTING THEIR

HANDS IN WORSHIP AND DOING

THINGS THAT I HAD NEVER SEEN

BEFORE.

AND IT WAS GOOD MUSIC.

I JUST REMEMBER FEELING 7

SUCH A PULL TO GO.

I'M SUCH A CRITICAL

THINKER.

I WAS CONSTANTLY THINKING SO

DEEPLY ABOUT GOD, FAITH,

CREATION, BUT DOUBTING GOD

AND JUST THE EXISTENCE OF

GOD.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, MY

HEART WAS SO SEEKING FOR

TRUTH.

I WANTED TO BELIEVE GOD.

I WOULD COMPANY BACK EVERY

WEEK BECAUSE I WANTED TO

HEAR WHAT GOD SAID ABOUT

THINGS.

I REMEMBER THINKING, LIKE,

IS THIS WRONG, WHAT I'M

DOING?

GOD, JUST TELL MAE.

JUSME.

JUST TELL ME IF WHAT I'M

DOING IS WRONG, AND I'LL

STOP DOING IT.

AND THE PASTOR WOULD SAY

SOMETHING ABOUT SLEEPING

AROUND OR WHATEVER, AND IN

THOSE MOMENTS, I WAS, LIKE,

OKAY, NOW I HAVE, LIKE,

STRENGTH TO JUST STOP DOING

THIS.

IT WAS AS IF GOD JUST KEPT

TAKING THESE LAYERS OFF MY

EYES AND OFF OF MY HEART AND

MY MIND, AND I STARTED

UNDERSTANDING THINGS MORE.

AND I STARTED REALIZING IF

THIS GOD IS REALLY WHO HE

SAYS HE IS, THEN HE DESERVES

MY WHOLE LIFE.

WHEN I FIRST GOT SAVED, I

REMEMBER HAVING A

NIGHTMARE.

AND I WOKEP WOKE UP, AND

I'M, LIKE, I HARDLY KNOW THE

BIBLE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO LOOK

AT.

BUT I NEED TO SPEAK TO ME

BECAUSE I'M VERY AFRAID AND

I NEED TO KNOW YOU'RE HERE.

SO I OPEN IT UP, AND RIGHT

THERE, AS I LOOK DOWN, IT

SAYS, "DO NOT BE AFRAID, FOR

I AM WITH YOU.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE OR

FORSAKE YOU."

AND IN THAT MOMENT, I JUST

THOUGHT, OH, MY GOSH, YOU'RE

REALLY NEAR AND PRESENT FROM

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT I HAD

EXPERIENCED AND DONE AND

SEEN.

I EXPERIENCED A LOT OF

TORMENTING THOUGHTS IN MY

MIND.

EVEN THOUGH I WASN'T DOING

THOSE THINGS BEFORE, IT WAS

HARD TO BELIEVE I COULD JUST

LET IT GO AFTER THAT, THAT I

WAS REALLY FORGIVEN.

MY PASTOR'S WIFE, I TOLD HER

EVERYTHING I HAD DONE.

I SAID, IT IS SO DISGUSTING,

I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE IT.

IT IS JUST SO BAD.

AND SHE WAS, LIKE, THAT IS

NO WHO YOU YOU ARE.

THIS IS WHO YOU ARE.

AND YOU'RE COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT NOW.

AND THOSE THOUGHTS THAT YOU

THOUGHT, THOSE ARE JUST

LIES.

* OH, THE BREATH OF JESUS

WASHES ME *

* OH, THE BREATH OF JESUS IS

FOR ME *

EVEN THE WORD SAYS

CONFESS YOUR SINS TO ONE

ANOTHER, AND YOU'LL BE

HEALED.

IT DOESN'T SAY OH, THIS PART

IS FORGIVEN AND THAT PART

ISN'T.

BUT HE PAID THE PRICE, THE

FULL PRICE, SO THAT I COULD

BE FORMA FORGIVEN AND

COMPLETELY MADE NEW.

EVEN IN MY SIN, JESUS LOVED

ME AND HE DIED FOR ME.

EVEN WHEN I WAS REJECTING

HIM.

HE STILL W WAS SO AFTER

ME.

THAT IS THE MOST POWERFUL

THING, THAT SOMEONE COULD

LOVE ME, EVEN WHEN I HATE

HIM.

* HE SAVED MY LIFE

* YES, HIS BLOOD, IT IS MY

VICTORY *

* YES, HIS BLOOD, IT IS MY

VICTORY *

Gordon: DEANNA'S STORY

IS A UNIVERSAL STORY.

WHY?

BECAUSE SHE WAS TRYING TO

FILL THAT EMPTINESS INSIDE.

THE BIBLE SAYS IT CLEARLY,

YOU FIND IT IN THE BOOK OF

ECCLESIASTES, AND THIS IS

SOLOMON WRITING, AND HE

SAYS, "GOD HAS PUT ETERNITY

IN OR HEARTS."

WE HAVE AN INFINITE PLACE

FOR AN INFINITE GOD TO

FILL.

THAT'S THAT EMPTINESS THAT

FEEL.

THE SECOND THING IS GOD IS

LOVE.

IN HIM THERE IS NO

DARKNESS.

THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION.

JUST PERFECT LOVE.

AND SO THAT LOVE YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR, THAT ACCEPTANCE

YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, IT'S ALL

BECAUSE HE PLACED THAT

ETERNITY IN YOUR HEART, AND

HE WANTS TO FILL IT.

HE WANTS TO SET YOU FREE.

THE RULES, IF YOU WILL, THE

COMMANDMENTS THAT HE WANTS

US TO FOLLOW, AREN'T TO KEEP

US FROM GOOD THINGS.

THEY'RE TO KEEP US FROM BAD

THINGS BECAUSE LOVE WANTS

YOU TO PROSPER.

HE WANTS YOUR SOUL TO

PROSPER.

HE WANTS ALL THINGS GOOD FOR

YOU.

HE WANTS TO WORK ALL THINGS

TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

BA THAT'S HIM.

BECAUSE THAT'S HIM.

HE LOVES YOU.

WHILE YOU WERE A SINNER,

WHILE YOU'RE CURSING HIM,

WHILE YOU'RE USING HIS NAME

EIN VAIN, HE STILL LOVES.

AND HE WANTS TO HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.

HE MADE YOU FOR THAT.

THAT W WAS HIS WHOLE

DREAM.

IN THE COOL OF THE EVENING

HE WOULD COME DOWN AND HE

WOULD TALK, FACE TO FACE,

WITH ADAM AND EVE.

AND GOD HASN'T GIVEN UP ON

THAT DREAM.

HE STILL WANTS YOU TO BE

APORT OF IT.

AA PART OF IT.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET

THAT?

TURN YOUR LIFE OVER TO HIM.

IF YOU'RE WONDERING, IS THIS

REAL?

CAN I REALLY BE FORGIVEN?

CAN I REALLY KNOW THIS

LOVE?

CAN THIS EMPTINESS INSIDE BE

FILLED?

HERE IS A CHALLENGE FOR.

IT'S A SEMPLE PRAYER.

SIMPLE PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU'RE REAL, IF

YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW ME,

IF YOU REALLY WANT ME TO

KNOW YOU, IF YOU REALLY CAN

FORGIVE ME, IF YOU CAN

REALLY SET ME FREE, IF ALL

OF THIS IS REAL, COULD YOU

SHOW ME?

IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, HE'LL COME.

HE'LL MANIFEST HIMSELF TO

YOU.

THAT'S HIS PROMISE.

WHEN SEEK ME WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, THEN YOU'LL FIND

ME.

IF YOU WANT THIS, IF YOU

WANT THIS RELATIONSHIP, ALL

I WANT YOU TO DO IS PICKP A

PICK UP A PHONE AND MAKE A

TOLL-FREE CALL.

1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO KNOW IF

JESUS IS REAL.

I WANT TO KNOW IF HE CAN

FORGIVE ME.

I WANT TO KNOW IF HE CAN

FILL THE EMPTINESS INSIDE

ME.

THERE WILL BE SOMEBODY AT

OUR PRAYER CENTER, ON THE

OTHER END OF THAT LINE, THAT

HAS PRAYED THIS PRAYER, THAT

HAS HAD THIS EXPERIENCE, AND

THEY WANT TO SHARE IT WITH

YOU.

SO CALL US, 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, BAD

NEWS FOR THE PARENTS OF A

LITTLE BOY.

HAVING THE DOCTOR TELL ME

THAT HE HAD AUTISM WAS LIKE

A KICK IN THE STOMACH.

IT WAS LIKE THE DOCTOR

HANDED US A SIGN, THIS IS

WHAT GUYS ARE GOING TO HAVE

YOUR LIFE.

Terry: WATCH HOW THEIR

SON DEFIED HIS DOCTORS.

AFRICA IS ACCELERATING, AND

IT COULD GROW SIX TIMES

LARGER TO INFECT AS MANY AS

20,000 PEOPLE.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

U.N.'S WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION.

SCIENTISTS ARE FAST-TRACKING

EFFORTS TO FIND A TREATMENT

DISEASE.

EBOLA HAS NOW SPREAD TO

MAJOR CITIES IN FOUR

COUNTRIES, PROVOKING UNREST

AS ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOODS AND

TOWNS HAVE BEEN SEALED TO

HE STEPPED BACK AND A

SECOND, AND HE POINTED THE

GUN AT MY CUSTOMER, AND HE

Gordon: BRINGING THE

STORIES OF THE BIBLE TO THE

CHILDREN OF THE WORLD.

THAT'S THE VISION BEHIND

"SUPERBOOK."

THIS YEAR A YOUNG GROUP OF

PEOPLE IN UKRAINE CAUGHT

THAT VISION, AND MADE A

PERSONAL INVESTMENT IN

CARRYING IT TO THE CHILDREN

IN THEIR HOME TOWN.

Reporter: WHEN THE NEW

"SUPERBOOK" PREMIERED IN

KIEV LAST EASTER, THEATERS

AND OUGHT TORMS WERE

AUDITORIUMS WERE FILLED WITH

PARENTS AND CHILDREN.

THERE WAS ALSO A REMARKABLE

GROUP OF YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS

IN ATTENDANCE, FORMER

RESIDENTS OF "THE FATHER'S

HOUSE," A PRIVATELY FUNDED

HOME FOR ORPHANED CHILDREN.

THESE TEENS SAW MORE THAN

JUST THE NEW "SUPERBOOK."

THEY FOUND AN OPPORTUNITY

FOR A LIFETIME OF

INVESTMENT.

THE TEACHERS GAVE A LOT

TO ME.

AND NOW I WANT TO GIVE TO

OTHER KIDS.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

THESE YOUNG PEOPLE DECIDED

THE BRING "SUPERBOOK" TO

THEIR VILLAGE OF ATOSKE.

EVEN MORE REMARKABLE, THEY

FUNDED THE ENTIRE VENTURE

THROUGH THEIR SMALL SALARIES

AND ALLOWANCES.

WHEN I EN VES INVEST MY

MONEY, IT IS NOT JOURNALIST

ABOUJUST ABOUT MATERIAL

THINGS.

I INVEST IN KIDS.

I INVEST IN THE FUTURE.

I AM PROUD I CAN INVEST

MY MONEY.

BECAUSE IT IS GOD'S WORD AND

WORK AND IT WILL BRING

FRUIT.

WHEN THE KIDS USED THEIR

STUDENT ALLOWANCES TO PAY

FOR IT, I WAS OVERWHELMED

WITH EMOTION.

Reporter: WHEN THE BIG

DAY ARRIVED FOR THE

"SUPERBOOK" PREMIER, THE

THEATER WAS FILLED WITH

BRIGHT-COLORED BALLOONS AND

GIFTS, AND AN OVERFLOW CROWD

OF CHILDREN AND PARENTS.

THEY SEEMED DELIGHTED WITH

THE ANIMATED CARTOONS IN

THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

I LIKE HOW JESUS HEALS

THE CHILDREN.

I HAVE A 5-YEAR-OLD, AND

HE STARTED ASKING QUESTIONS

THAT I WAS NOT EXPECTING.

Reporter: NO WORRIES

FOR THIS MOM.

A "SUPERBOOK" CLUB WILL SOON

BE COMING TO PETROVSKE,

COMPLETE WITH NEW MATERIALS

AND DISCUSSIONS FROM TEENS

AND LEADERS FROM "FATHER'S

HOUSE."

WE BELIEVE THAT THESE

KIDS WILL ASK JESUS INTO

THEIR HEARTS AFTER WATCHING

"SUPERBOOK."

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

THESE PARENTS WERE TOLD

THEIR SON WOULD PROBABLY

NEVER SPEAK.

INSTEAD, HE SHOT TO THE TOP

OF HIS CLASS.

YOU'LL SEE WHY.

THAT'S JUST AHEAD.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR AND FOR YOUR

NEEDS.

SO STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: TINA AND BRIAN

WALDEN WERE TOLD THAT THEIR

YOUNG SON, ETHAN, WAS

AUTISTIC, AND THAT HE WOULD

PROBABLY NEVER SPEAK.

YEARS OF FRUSTRATION AND

HEARTBREAK FOLLOWED UNTIL

THE NIGHT TINA HAD A SUPER

NATURAL VISION OF WHAT HER

SON WAS REALLY FIGHTING.

WHEN ETHAN WAS BORN, HE

WAS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

THAN OUR FIRST CHILD.

HE WOULD HAVE MOMENTS OF

OKAY CALMNESS DURING THE

DAY, BUT AT NIGHT IT WAS

REALLY BAD.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

TINA WALDEN ALWAYS DREAMED

OF HAVING A FAMILY.

THEIR FIRST SON, DEVON, WAS

A BREEZE.

THEIR SECOND SON, ETHAN, WAS

MORE OF A CHALLENGE.

IT WAS REALLY BAD.

IF HE FELL ASLEEP FOR 20

MINUTES, HE WOULD WAKE UP

SCREAMING.

WE WOULD END UP IN A CHAIR

ROCKING HIM, AND AS SOON AS

WE FELL ASLEEP, HE KIND OF

QUIETED DOWN.

I WOULD TRY TO GET HIS

ATTENTION, AND HE WOULDN'T

LOOK AT ME.

I WOULD TICKLE HIM AND SMILE

AT HIM.

I WOULD BRING OUT THE TOYS

AND DO ANYTHING TO GET HIM

THE RESPOND.

AND HE WOULDN'T.

Reporter: AS ETHAN GOT

OLDER, TINA AND BRIAN

WORRIED SOMETHING COULD BE

WRONG.

HE WAS NOT ABLE TO TELL

ME WHAT WA GOING ON.

INSTEA WAS GOING ON.

HE WERE JUST CRY.

AND HE WOULD BITE HIMSELF,

BITE HIMSELF UNTIL HE WOULD

BLEED.

Reporter: A DOCTOR

REFERRED HIM TO A

SPECIALIST, WHO GAVE THEM

THE NEWS THEY DREADED.

HE SAID, I'M SORRY THE

TELL, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE YOUR

SON HAS AUTISM.

HAVING THE DOCTOR TELL ME

HAS AUTISM WAS LIKE A KICK

IN THE STOMACH.

IT WAS LIKE THE DOCTOR

HANDED US A SIGN, THIS IS

WHAT YOU'LL HAVE TO DEAL

WITH FOR THE REST OF YOUR

LIFE.

Reporter: ONE DOCTOR

TOLD THE WALDENS THAT ETHAN

WOULD PROBABLY NEVER SPEAK.

THEY BEGAN TO CARE FOR THEIR

SON, BUT RAISING ETHAN WAS

EXHAUSTING AND STRESSFUL,

AND THAT STRAINED THEIR

MARRIAGE.

THERE WAS A LOT MORE

ARGUMENTS, A LOT MORE

DISAGREEMENTS.

I HAVE MY THOUGHTS ABOUT

WHAT WE SH DO.

SHOULD DO, AND SHE HAS HER

THOUGHTS ABOUT WHAT WE

SHOULD DO.

Reporter: THEN ONE

NIGHT TINA SAYS SHE HAS A

VISION OF A DARK PRESENCE IN

HER SON'S ROOM.

SHE WOKEP I WOKE UP IN A

PANIC.

I REMEMBER GETTING UP,

AND I RAN DOWN THE HALLWAY

AND I RAN INTO ETHAN'S ROOM

AND I FELL ON THE FLOOR.

I JUST CRIED.

I CRIED MY EYES OUT.

I PICKED HER UP THE FLOOR

AND WE STARTED TALKING.

AND SOMETHING IN MY MIND

SAID, THIS FIGHT IS AS MUCH

AS SPIRITUAL BATTLE AS MUCH

AS A PHYSICAL BATTLE.

Reporter: THEY REALIZED

ONLY THEIR FAITH IN GOD

COULD HELP THEM RAISE THEIR

SON.

THE NEXT MORNING I GOT UP

AND PRINTED OUT A BUNCH OF

BIBLE VERSES.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

THAT, THEY FOUND AN AUTISM

SPECIALLY, JANELLE.

LOOKING AT ETHAN THEN, HE

LOOKED LIKE A STUDENT THAT

WOULD PROGRESS VERY SLOWLY.

Reporter: JANELLE IS

ALSO A CHRISTIAN, AND

BELIEVED, LIKE THE WALDENS,

THAT PRAYER IS JUST AS

IMPORTANT AS THERAPY.

SHE PRAYED WITH THE FAMILY

DAILY.

WE COULD SEE EVERYTHING

HE WAS DOING WAS WORKING.

AND HE WASN'T STAGNANT.

Reporter: SOON ETHAN

WAS MAKING

EYE

CONTACT.

AND HE WAS RESPONSIVE AND

SEEMED TO RECOGNIZE THIS

PARENTS.

HE STILL WAN WASN'T

TALKING, BUT THAT CHANGED

ONE DAY.

I REMEMBER HIS FIRST

WORD.

IT WAS GO.

I WOULD WANT TO HEAR ET

ALL OF THE TIME.

BECAUSE I KNEW ONCE WE GOT

ONE WORD COMING OUT OF HIS

MOUTH, MORE WOULD COME.

Reporter: FOR A WHILE

HE WOULD JUST REPEAT WHAT HE

HEARD.

HIS BIG BROTHER, DEVON,

HELPED HIM PRACTICE BY

TEACHING HIM TO PRAY.

I GOT HIM TO SAY, DEAR

JESUS, THANK YOU FOR MY

PARENTS.

BLESS THEM.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN.

Reporter: AND THEN

FINALLY...

WE TALKED.

WE HAD OUR FIRST

CONVERSATION.

HE TOLD ME WHAT HIS FAVORITE

COLOR WAS, AND HE TOLD ME

THAT HE LOVED ME.

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT I HAD

JUST DREAMED OF HEARING, GOD

WAS RELEASING.

AND IT WAS COMING OUT OF HIS

MOUTH.

Reporter: HE PROGRESSED

SO RAPIDLY, THAT BY THE TIME

HE WAS FIVE, HE WAS IN A

STANDARD KINDERGARTEN

CLASS.

THE ONLY REACTION IS THAT

GOD DID THE MIRACULOUS IN

ETHAN'S LIFE.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL TO HIM.

AND TINA AND BRIAN DID

EVERYTHING THEY CAN FOR

THEIR SON.

Reporter: NOW HE IS

NINE YEARS OLD, AND HE IS IN

THE 99th PERCENTILE

STATE-WIDE.

HE RECENTLY WON THE

CALIFORNIA'S YOUNG

SCHOLARSHIP AWARD.

I LIKE HANGING O OUT

WITH MY FRIENDS, AND HANGING

OUT WITH MY MOM.

Reporter: ONE OF HIS

FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IS

WRESTLE WITH HIS DAD.

DEVON ALWAYS BEATS ME

UP.

MY DAD GOES EASY ON ME

BECAUSE HE IS STRONG.

Reporter: THEIR

BOOK, "A BRAND NEW DAY"

SHARES THEIR JOURNEY.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, THEY SAY

THEY BELIEVE THAT ETHAN'S

STORY IS A MESSAGE FOR THOSE

WHO GO THROUGH DIFFICULT

TIMES.

HANG ON TO GOD'S PROMISES

BECAUSE THEY'RE TRUE.

AND HE IS FAITHFUL AND HE IS

AMAZING.

HE IS GOING THE USE WHATEVER

YOU GO THROUGH TO HELP

SOMEONE ELSE AND TO BRING

GLORY TO HIS NAME.

Terry: IF JUST LOOKED

AT ETHAN'S CIRCUMSTANCES, AT

HIS CONDITION, YOU COULD

EASILY HAVE GIVENP AND SAID,

GIVEN UP AND SAID, THAT'S

IT.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO

CONTEND WITH.

BUT NOT ETHAN'S PARENTS.

BECAUSE THEY WERE PEOPLE WHO

KNEW THEIR GOD, PEOPLE WHO

WERE WILLING TO STAND IN THE

GAP AND PRAY FOR A MIRACLE.

TODAY WE WANT THE DO THAT

FOR YOU.

WE WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

I HOPE ETHAN'S STORY

ENCOURAGED YOUR FAITH, THAT

GOD IS WHO HE SAYS IT IS,

AND HE IS ABLE AND HE CAN

INTERVENE IN THE SITUATIONS

OF MEN AND MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

GORDON, THIS IS ABOUT GARY

FROM HEADLAND, ALABAMA.

IN 2012 HE NOTICED A

COMMITTEE ON HIS NECK.

THE DOCTORS SAID THAT

COMMITTEE WAS CAUSED BY

ARTHRITIS AND A DEGENERATIVE

BONE DISEASE.

HE TREATED THE NECK WITH

INJECTIONS, BUT THE PROBLEM

GREW WORSE.

GARY BEGAN TO SUFFER A LOSS

OF STRENGTH IN HIS LEFT ARM

AND HAND.

IN JULY HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND HE HEARD YOU,

GORDON, GIVE THIS WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

YOU YOU SAID SAID, SOMEONE

WITH A CURVATURE IN THE

SPINE, GOD IS HEALING THAT.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE TOUCHED.

GARY CLAIMED THAT WORD FOR

HIM.

THEN HE WENT FOR A WALK.

HE SUDDENLY REALIZED THE

KNOT WAS COMPLETELY GONE,

AND HE HAD FULL RANGE OF

MOTION IN HIS NECK, AND THE

STRENGTH HAD RETURNED TO HIS

ARM AND HAND.

THANK YOU, GOD.

Gordon: LETICIA FROM

UGANDA HAD BEEN SUFFERING

WITH ACID REFLUX, AND THE

DOCTORS TOLD HER THE TISSUES

HAD BEEN DAMAGED.

AS A RESULT, THERE WERE VERY

FEW FLUIDS SHE COULD EAT.

LAST JULY SHE WAS VISITING

HER DAUGHTER IN MINNESOTA.

SHE SAW A STORY ON "THE 700

CLUB" ABOUT A WOMAN WHO HAD

BEEN HEALED OF ESOPHAGEAL

DAMAGE.

AND THEN TERRY GAVE THIS

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, "YOU

HEARD THAT REPORT ON THE

ESOPHAGUS, AND YOU'RE HAVING

A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH YOUR

ESOPHAGUS.

GOD IS HEALING THAT ACID

REFLUX, THE DAMAGED TISSUE

THERE.

HE IS HEALING THAT WHOLE

QUESTION FOR YOU.

JUST RECEIVE IT FROM HIM NOW

IN JESUS' NAME."

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD FOR

HERSELF.

ALL OF THE PAIN LEFT

IMMEDIATELY.

SHE WAS HEALED.

AND NOW SHE CAN EAT WHATEVER

SHE WANTS.

AND THAT IS A MIRACLE.

I LOVE THAT STORY ABOUT

CLAIMING IT.

REALIZING THAT YOU'RE IN A

SPIRITUAL BATTLE, A PHYSICAL

BATTLE, AND THEN CLAIMING

IT.

AND CLAIMING THE RESOURCES

OF HEAVEN THAT ARE AVAILABLE

TO.

TO YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS, CALL FOR THE

ELDERS.

LET THEM LAY HANDS ON THE

SICK, AND THE PRAYER OF

FAITH WILL RAISE THEM UP.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

THE BIBLE SAYS, WHEN TWO OR

MORE AGREE TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE

FOR THEM BY MY FATHER IN

HEAVEN.

THESE AREN'T MY WORDS.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

NOW, JESUS OUTLINED WHAT IT

TAKES, BELIEVE IN GOD, HAVE

FAITH IN GOD.

YOU FIND THAT IN MARK 11.

DON'T HAVE FAITH IN YOUR

PRAYER.

DON'T HAVE FAITH IN OIL.

DON'T HAVE FAITH IN ELDERS.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

AND WHEN YOU DO IT THE WAY

HE SAYS TO DO IT, YOU'RE

SAYING I TRUST YOU; I HAVE

FAITH IN YOU.

I DON'T HAVE FAITH IN THIS

RITUAL.

I HAVE FAITH IN YOU.

IN YOUR UNLIMITED POWER.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, LET'S

CLAIM THAT VERSE.

WHEN TWO OR MORE AGREE

TOUCHING ANYTHING, AND IN AN

ACT OF FAITH, LAY YOUR HAND

ON THAT AREA OF THE BODY

THAT NEEDS HEALING.

IF THERE ARE PEOPLE AROUND,

ASK FOR THEM TO COME AND

PRAY WITH AND LAY HANDS ON

YOU YOU.

YOU.

AND LET'S NOT BELIEVE A

RITUAL.

LET'S BELIEVE A LIVING GOD

WHO SAYS DO IT THIS WAY.

WHEN TWO OR MORE AGREE

TOUCHING ANYTHING...TERRY

AND I ARE GOING TO AGREE.

WE'RE GOING THE JOIN HANDS,

AND WE'RE GOING THE JOIN

WITH YOU, AND WE'RE GOING

THE LAY HANDS, AND WE'RE

JUST GOING TO RELY ON GOD,

AND LET HIM DO WHAT HE DOES

BEST.

WHICH HE DOES MIRACLES, AND

HE WANTS TO DO THEM FOR YOU

TODAY.

LET'S PRAY.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE JUST

COME BOLDING TO THE THRONE

OF GRACE NOW.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

COVERS US, CLEANSES US FROM

ALL SIN.

ALLOWS US ACCESS TO YOUR

PRESENCE, ACCESS TO YOUR

UNFAILING LOVE.

ACCESS TO YOUR THRONE OF

GRACE AND OF MERCY.

LORD, WE JUST ASK FOR YOUR

GRACE TO BE MULTIPLIED AND

TO BE POURED OUT TODAY, AND

THE PEOPLE WOULD BE GIVEN A

MEASURE OF FAITH TO BELIEVE

FOR HEALING.

AND NOW, WITH THAT FAITH, WE

COMMAND, AS PEOPLE ARE

LAYING HANDS ON THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING,

WE COMMAND IT NOW BE GONE IN

JESUS' NAME.

AFFLICT THEM NO MORE.

LET THERE BE NO MORE PAIN,

NO MORE SUFFERING, NO MORE

I INFIRMITY, NO MORE

DISEASE.

IN JESUS' NAME BE HEALED AND

BE SET FREE.

THERE ARE TWO WORDS, ONE.
