The 700 Club - November 11, 2014

Author and Pastor Johnnie Moore will discuss his new book and tell you how to determine God’s will for your life. Plus, Ralph Davis is an American WWII veteran whose faith and regular prayers of Psalm 91 during bombing missions sustained him. Read Transcript


COMING UP ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB"...

A FAITH WALK.

TWO HEROS.

I REMEMBER HOW SCARED I

WAS.

TWO GENERATIONS APART.

I VOLUNTEERED BEFORE MY

MOTHER AND DADDY EVEN KNEW

IT.

IT SEEMS LIKE IT WAS

YESTERDAY.

WE SAY THANK YOU TO OUR

VETERANS.

TO PROTECT OUR PEOPLE.

I HAD NOBODY ELSE TO RELY

ON BUT HIM.

ON TODAY'S SHOW.

*

Pat: WELL, TODAY WE

SALUTE OUR VETERANS, OF

WHICH I AM DELIGHTED TO SAY

I AM ONE, IN THE KOREAN WAR,

SOME FROM VIETNAM, SOME FROM

WORLD WAR II.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANY WORLD

WAR I VETERANS ARE STILL

HERE, AND IF THEY ARE,

THEY'RE VERY OLD NOW.

SOME JUST COMING OUT OF THE

AFGHAN CRISIS AND THE IRAQI

WAR.

ALL OF THEM BRAVE PEOPLE

DEFENDING OUR NATION.

BUT THE BIG NEWS IS THEY SAY

IT IS NOW BEING CALLED

"SNOWEMBER," AND IT IS NOT

EVEN WINTER YET, BUT PARTS

OF THE COUNTRY ARE BURIED

UNDER HEAVY SNOW.

SOME OF THE HARDEST,

HEAVIEST SNOWS ARE ON

RECORD, AND A HUGE ARCTIC

STORM IS BRINGING WINTER TO

AMERICA ONE MONTH EARLY.

Terry: AND IT GOT VERY

COLD VERY FAST IN SOME

PLACES.

IN DENVER, THE TEMPERATURE

PLUNGED 20° IN 30 MINUTES.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: THE BLAST OF

WINTERY WEATHER SWEPT ACROSS

THE UPPER MIDWEST ON MONDAY,

BRINGING HEAVY KNOW IN SOME

AREAS AND PLUNGING

TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE

REGION.

IT IS A RECIPE THAT IS

CREATING WIDESPREAD CHAOS

FOR DRIVERS.

I'VE BEEN SITTING HERE

FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS.

I GOT ABOUT, I DON'T KNOW,

15 TRUCKS BEHIND ME.

Charlene: IN MINNESOTA,

ICY ROADS CAUSED A 16-CAR

PILEUP.

EVERYTHING SLID DOWN THE

HILL.

Charlene: MINNEAPOLIS

GOT MORE THAN 15 INCHES OF

SNOW ON MONDAY, WITH MORE ON

THE WAY.

THE FRIGID WEATHER IS BEING

PUSHED IN BY A POWERFUL

STORM, THAT HIT ALASKA WITH

HURRICANE-FORCE WINDS OVER

THE WEEKEND, THREATENING TO

SEND TEMPERATURES AS MUCH AS

40° BELOW AVERAGE.

53° WAS THE HIGH IN MONTANA

ON SUNDAY, AND MONDAY, IT

BARELY HIT 20, AND A LOW OF

ONLY 8° IS EXPECTED TODAY.

THE POLAR COLD IS BRINGING

LOWS IN THE TEENS AND SINGLE

DIGITS INTO IOWA, KANSAS,

AND COLORADO THIS WEEK, AND

FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE

FORECAST AS FAR AS SOUTH

TEXAS.

WHILE MOST WANT TO PUT OFF

WINTER FOR A FEW MORE WEEKS,

SOME ARE WELCOMING IT WITH

OPEN ARMS.

I THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY

COOL.

Charlene: FORECASTERS

SAY THINGS WILL GET WARMER

OVER THE WEEKEND, BUT THEY

WON'T STAY THAT WAY.

ANOTHER ARCTIC BLAST IS ON

THE WAY FOR NEXT WEEK.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: MY, MY, MY.

COME TO VIRGINIA BEACH, IT

IS BALMY HERE.

Terry: DON'T SPEAK THAT

TOO MUCH.

IT WILL BLIZZARD HERE.

Pat: IN OTHER NEWS,

ONCE AGAIN PEOPLE IN

JERUSALEM ARE FAVORING

FACING THE THREAT OF

PALESTINIAN TERRORISM.

THIS TIME NOT WITH GUNS AND

BOMBS.

INSTEAD, THE TERRORISTS USED

KNIVES AND CARS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEW YEAR' CBN

NEWS BURY IN WASHINGTON.

John: THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY IS BEHIND A SHARP

INCREASE IN TERROR ATTACKS.

ON TUESDAY, TWO PALESTINIANS

APPARENTLY TOOK THAT MESSAGE

TO HEART WHEN THEY KILLED

TWO ISRAELIS.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US THE

LATEST FROM JERUSALEM.

Reporter: PALESTINIANS

SCREAMED THAT THE NIGHT

INTIFADAH HAS BEGUN.

THEY MURDERED TWO ISRAELIS

IN SEPARATE TERROR ATTACKS

ON MONDAY.

A TERRORIST STABBED A

20-YEAR-OLD SOLDIER TO DEATH

AT A TEL AVIV BUS STOP IN

THE AFTERNOON.

A FEW HOURS LATER, ANOTHER

TERRORIST STABBED A

26-YEAR-OLD WOMAN TO DEATH

AT THE SAME BUS STOP WHERE

THREE ISRAELI TEENAGERS WERE

KIDNAPPED AND MURDERED IN

JUNE.

THEY'RE THE LATEST OF

PALESTINIAN ATTACKS CARRIED

OUT USING EVERYDAY ITEMS

LIKE CARS AND KNIVES TO

MURDER ISRAELIS.

ISRAEL BLAMES THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY FOR

INSIGHTING PALESTINIANS TO

TERROR.

THIS INSIGHTMENT CALLS

FOR ALL MEANS, SO THAT THE

TEMPLE MOUNT IS CLEAN FROM

JEWS.

Reporter: JOSI, FROM

THE MINISTER OF STRATEGIC

AFFAIRS, TOLD JOURNALISTS

EARLIER THAT SPEECHES LIKE

THIS ONE BY MAHMOUD ABBAS IS

CAUSING THE TROUBLE.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH FOR US

TO SAY THERE ARE DEFENDERS.

WE MUST ALL BECOME DEFENDERS

OF AL-AQSA.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO SAY THEY

MIGHT COME TO THE AL-AQSA

MOSQUE.

THEY DID COME.

WE MUST PREVENT THEIR

ENTRANCE INTO THE COMPLEX BY

ANY MEANS POSSIBLE.

Reporter: HAMAS, WHICH

IS PART OF ABBAS'

PALESTINIAN GOVERNMENT WAS

MORE EXPLICIT.

EVEN THOUGH WHO OWNS

NOTHING BUT HIS FAITH, HAS A

KITCHEN IN HIS HOUSE, IN

WHICH HE HAS A KNIFE.

HE MUST GRAB HIS KNIFE AND

CONFRONT THE ZIONIST ENEMY.

ANOTHER DOESN'T OWN A

WEAPON, BUT HE DOES OWN A

CAR.

HE MUST PASS DOWN ON HIS GAS

PEDAL FOR THOSE WHO DEFY THE

MOSQUE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE LICENSED

TO DO THINGS ON THE GROUND.

Reporter: IN RESPONSE

TO THE ATTACKS, BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SAID THEY WOULD

FIGHT THE INSIGHTMENT FROM

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY.

THOSE WHO PROTEST IN

FAVOUR OF THE PALESTINIAN

STATE, I SAY SIMPLY MOVE

THERE, TO THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY OR GAZA.

I PROMISE YOU THE STATE OF

ISRAEL WILL NOT MAKE IT

DIFFICULT FOR YOU.

FOR THOSE WHO STAY HERE, WE

WILL MAKE IT DIFFICULT IF

YOU'RE A RIOTER OR A

TERRORISTS.

Reporter: A GROWING

NUMBER OF JEWISH ISRAELIS

WANT THE RIGHT TO PRAY ON

THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

IT IS THE SITE OF TWO JEWISH

TEMPLES IN BIBLE TIMES.

BUT THE PALESTINIANS SAY THE

TEMPLE IN JEWISH HISTORY

NEVER EXISTED.

THE PALESTINIANS SAY THEY

WILL MAINTAIN THE STATUS

QUO.

THAT MEANS FOR NOW ONLY

MUSLIMS CAN PRAY ON THE

COVETED PLATEAU.

IN THE MEANTIME, THE

ISRAELIS ARE DEALING WITH

THE POSSIBILITY OF TERROR

ATTACKS ANY PLACE ANY TIME.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

John: THANKS, CHRIS.

PAT, MORE AND MORE MIDEAST

UNREST.

Pat: JUST IMAGINE,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WHAT

IT WOULD FEEL LIKE IN

CHICAGO OR NEW YORK OR

PHILADELPHIA OR LOS ANGELES

IF EVERYBODY WAS CARRYING A

KNIFE, AND EVERYBODY WHO

RODE A BUS OR RODE A SUBWAY

OR WALKED IN A PEDESTRIAN

MALL COULD BE THE SUBJECT OF

A KNIFE ATTACK?

NOW, THAT'S A TERRIBLE

PROSPECT, A TERRIBLE

PROSPECT.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

WOULD YOU HARM EVERYBODY?

GIVE EVERYBODY A GUN?

HAVE THEM ALL WITH PISTOLS?

IT WOULD BE AN ARMED EN

ENCAMPMENT, AND THERE WOULD

BE TERROR CONSTANTLY.

WHO WOULD WANT TO LIVE IN A

SOCIETY LIKE THAT?

YOU WOULDN'T.

EVERY TIME AN ISRAELI GETS

ON A BUS, IF THERE IS A

PALESTINIAN, THEY STICK A

KNIFE IN HIS RIBS.

THAT IS AN UNPLEASANT

PROSPECT.

BUT THE THING IS THAT THE

AUTHORITY, THE ACTUALLY

LEADERSHIP OF THE

PALESTINIANS IS CALLING ON

ITS PEOPLE TO STICK KNIVES

INTO ISRAELIS.

THEY ARE ASKING THEM TO DO

THAT, AND IF THEY HAVEN'T

GOT A KNIFE, TAKE A CAR AND

DRIVE IT INTO UNARMED

ISRAELIS AND KILL THEM.

WHY DO WE DIGNIFY THESE

PEOPLE?

WHY DO WE GIVE THEM AID AND

MONEY?

SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.

THIS ABU MAZIN IS SUPPOSED

TO BE A MODERATE.

THINK OF WHAT IT WOULD BE

LIKE IF THE TERRORISTS WERE

IN CONTROL, AND IT LOOKS

LIKE HAMAS PROBABLY IS.

IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME TO

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM, IT IS NOW.

John: IRAQ'S COUNTRY

HAS CAPTURED A TOWN, HOME TO

THE LARGEST OIL REFINERY.

A SENIOR MILITARY OFFICIAL

SAYS CLASHES CONTINUE IN

OTHER PARTS OF THE TOWN.

THE U.S. SAID ON MONDAY THAT

COALITION AIRCRAFT CONDUCTED

SEVEN AIRSTRIKES NEAR BAJI

SINCE FRIDAY.

BACK HERE AT HOME, THE

NUMBER OF PEOPLE SIGNING UP

FOR INSURANCE PROGRAMS

THROUGH OBAMACARE IS FALLING

DRASTICALLY.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES ESTIMATES

9.1 MILLION PEOPLE WILL SIGN

UP NEXT YEAR.

MEANWHILE, A MAN CALLED THE

ARCTIARCHITECT OF THE LAW

SAID IT HAD TO BE WRITTEN IN

A CONFUSING WAY SO IT WOULD

PASS.

HE SAID PREVENTING PEOPLE

FROM REALLY UNDERSTANDING

WHAT WAS IN THE LAW WAS

NECESSARY SO PEOPLE WOULDN'T

KNOW WHAT WAS IN IT AND TRY

TO STOP IT.

LACK OF TRANSPARENCY IS A

HUGE POLITICAL ADVANTAGE.

BASICALLY, CALL IT THE

STUPIDITY OF THE AMERICAN

VOTER OR WHATEVER, BUT THAT

WAS REALLY, REALLY CRITICAL

TO GET IT TO PASS.

John: IN THE VIDEO

POSTED BY THE DAILY CALLER,

HE ADDED HE WISHED THE

PROCESS OF WRITING OBAMACARE

COULD HAVE BEEN MORE

TRANSPARENT, BUT HE WOULD

RATHER HAD HAD THE LAW THAN

NOT.

AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

SAID IT WAS INDEED A TAX.

Pat: ARE YOU SHOCKED?

IS THAT SHOCKING TO THINK

THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND

HIS MINIONS DELIBERATELY

LIED TO THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

YOU THINK OF NANCY PELOSI,

THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES SAID WE HAVE

TO PASS THE LAW SO WE KNOW

WHAT IT IS IN IT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW.

AND THIS PERSON SAYS IT WAS

DELIBERATELY DONE SO THE

VOTER WOULDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

IN THERE.

AND THE PRESIDENT WENT OUT

AND SAID IT IS NOT A TAX.

HE SAID IT.

TO THINK WE HAVE THE LEADER

OF OUR COUNTRY WHO IS AN OUT

AND OUT LIAR, A REPEATED

LIAR, WITH KNOWLEDGE, WITH

FORETHOUGHT.

THIS ISN'T SOME ACCIDENTAL

FLIP OF THE TONGUE.

THESE ARE DELIBERATE LIES.

AND THEY'VE GOT THIS

MONSTROSITY THEY SETTLED ON

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND

PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR

HEALTH CARE, OR THEY'RE

GETTING THEIR PREMIUMS

DOUBLED OR TRIPLED.

IT IS JUST A NIGHTMARE FOR

MANY, MANY PEOPLE.

THE PEOPLE ROSE UP IN THIS

LAST ELECTION AND THEY GAVE

A RESOUNDING DEFEAT TO THE

DEMOCRATS IN THE ELECTION.

IN TERMS OF THE SENATE AND

THE HOUSE AND SO FORTH, AND

GOVERNORS' RACES.

NEVERTHELESS, THIS LAW IS

STILL ON THE BOOKS.

IN ORDER TO GET IT OUT,

WE'VE GOT A PRESIDENT WHO

HAS A VETO PEN.

AND THEY CAN CHIP AWAY A

LITTLE BIT, A LITTLE BIT, A

LITTLE BIT.

WOULD A MONSTROSITY.

DOESN'T IT SHOCK YOU?

TO HAVE A GROUP THAT SAID WE

DELIBERATELY LIED TO THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE SO THIS

COULD BE TAKEN OVER BY THE

GOVERNMENT.

THAT WOULD MAKE LENNON

BLANCH.

THAT'S THE WAY THE

COMMUNISTS WORK.

JOHN?

John: PAT, IN NORTH

CAROLINA AT LEAST SIX

OFFICIALS HAVE RESIGNED FROM

THEIR JOBS, RATHER THAN BE

FORCED TO PERFORM SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE CEREMONIES.

HEATHER SELLS TALKED TO ONE

MAGISTRATE ABOUT HIS

DECISION AND WHEN HE GOES

FROM HERE.

Reporter: JOHN KELLEM

HAS WORKED AS A MAGISTRATE

FOR OVER A DECADE.

DURING THAT TIME HE HAS

CLOSELY WATCHED THE GROWING

MOMENTUM OF GAY MARRIAGE AND

WONDERED WHAT IT MIGHT MEAN

FOR HIM.

I TOLD SOME OF MY

CO-WORKERS, IF IT EVER GETS

DOWN TO THAT, WHERE I'M

ASKED TO PERFORM SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE, I'M NOT GOING TO

BE ABLE TO DO IT.

Reporter: THAT MOMENT

HAPPENED LAST MONTH, WHEN A

FEDERAL JUDGE STRUCK DOWN

NORTH CAROLINA'S MARRIAGE

AMENDMENT.

KELLEM TOLD HIS SUPERVISOR,

I CAN'T PERFORM A GAY

MARRIAGE.

THE FOLLOWING DAY THE STATE

TOOK ITS STAND: COMPLY OR

LOSE YOUR JOB.

I SHOWED UP AT 4:00,

READY FOR MY SHIFT.

THERE WAS NO DISCUSSION.

IT WAS JUST TWO JUDGES

REITERATING WHAT THE

ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE OF THE

COURTS HAD SAID.

THIS IS NOW THE LAW.

WE'RE HERE TO UP HOLD THE

LAW.

THEREFORE YOU WILL DO IT.

Reporter: KELLEM SAYS

HE TRIED TO KEEP HIS JOB,

EVEN OFFERING TO WORK THE

THIRD SHIFT, TO AVOID

MARRYING SAME-SEX COUPLES,

BUT IN THE END HE FELT HE

HAD NO CHOICE.

GENESIS 2: 24 IS PRETTY

CLEAR ABOUT MARRIAGE BEING

INSTITUTED BY GOD.

Reporter: KELLEM SAYS

HE RELIES ON THE WORD, NOT

ONLY FOR THIS DECISION, BUT

FOR THE FUTURE.

HE AND HIS WIFE ARE RAISING

THEIR GRANDCHILDREN AND

COUNTED ON HIS JOB.

I'M AN OLDER PERSON.

I'M NOT A YOUNG PERSON.

I'M 66 YEARS OLD.

I KNOW THAT TRYING TO FIND A

JOB WHEN YOU'RE 66 YEARS OLD

IS KIND OF HARD, IF NOT

IMPOSSIBLE.

BUT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE IN

GOD'S EYES.

Reporter: HIS STRUGGLE

MAY BE JUST THE BEGINNING AS

GAY MARRIAGE GROWS AND

ACCEPTANCE FOR RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY FADES.

NORTH CAROLINA SENATE LEADER

PHIL BURGER BELIEVES THE

STATE COURTS CAN ACCOMMODATE

WORKERS LIKE KELLEM.

HE IS WORKING ON LEGISLATION

THAT WOULD PROTECT RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS AND LEAD THE STATE

COURTS TO REVERSE COURSE.

I THINK UNFORTUNATELY,

WHAT WE'VE SEEN IN NORTH

CAROLINA IS A FAILURE ON THE

PART OF NORTH CAROLINA TO

PROVIDE AN APPROPRIATE

ACCOMMODATION FOR THE

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS OF

MAGISTRATES IN PARTICULAR.

Reporter: FOR KELLEM'S

PASTOR, THE SITUATION HAS

PROVIDED A REALITY CHECK.

I TOLD OUR CONGREGATION

IF THEY CAN TELL A

MAGISTRATE LAST WEEK YOU

HAVE TO PERFORM THIS

CEREMONY, WHAT IS TO PREVENT

THAT FRE FROM TELLING ME

NEXT WEEK I HAVE TO DO IT.

Reporter: AND KELLEM'S

STANCE IS BRINGING HOPE AND

COURAGE TO HIS COMMUNITY.

STRANGERS WHO I DIDN'T

EVEN KNOW SAID, THANK YOU

FOR STANDING UP.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING A

POSITION.

WE APPRECIATE YOU AND WE'RE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

Reporter: REPORTING IN

NORTH CAROLINA, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

John: A DUTCH MAN HAD

TWO WIRELESS COMPUTER CHIPS

IMPLANTED IN HIS BODY SO HE

COULD STORE MONEY AND USE IT

FOR OTHER PURPOSES, LIKE

PROGRAMMING AN ALARM CLOCK.

THE LONDON TELEGRAPH REPORTS

HE DECIDED THE CHIPS AREN'T

SECURE ENOUGH YET TO USE

PERMANENTLY.

BUT HE DOES CALL THE

EXPERIMENT A SUCCESS.

HE SAYS THE CHIPS CAN BE

USED NOT ONLY FOR DIGITAL

CURRENCY, BUT AS KEYS FOR

YOUR HOUSE OR MONITORING

YOUR HEALTH.

AND IT CAN HELP YOU CALL A

DOCTOR IF YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE

A HEART ATTACK.

HE BELIEVES PEOPLE WHO USE

THE CHIPS ARE HELPING TO

MAKE THEM SOCIALLY

ACCEPTABLE.

PAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

DOES THIS SOUND A LITTLE

LIKE END-TIME PROPHECY.

Pat: WHAT DOES THE

PEOPLE SAY, YOU HAVE THE

MARK OF THE ANTICHRIST,

666.

THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT.

YOU PUT A CHIP INTO

SOMETHING THAT HAS ALL OF

THEIR FINANCIAL RECORDS, AND

IT CAN BE STORED IN A TINY

CHIP.

WE NOW HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY

TO DO IT.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT

THE SYSTEM WOULD BE SO ALL

PERVASIVE.

WELL, WE'RE GETTING IT.

THIS DUTCH MAN IS SHOWING

HOW IT CAN BE DONE.

SO READ THE NEWSPAPER AND

READ THE BOOK OF

REVELATION.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, TODAY IS

VETERANS' DAY, AND WE WANT

TO THANK THE MEN AND WOMEN

OF OUR ARMED FORCES,

STARTING WITH THE FIRST HERO

OF THE IRAQ WAR.

IT TOOK ME A LITTLE BIT

TO ACTUALLY REALIZE WHAT WAS

HAPPENING.

THE MINGLE WAS TO JUST

GET ME OUTSIDE OF THE

HOSPITAL AS QUICKLY AS

POSSIBLE.

Terry: JESSICA LYNCH

SHARES HER STORY, FROM

PRIVATE FIRST CLASS TO

PRISONER OF WAR.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: ARMY PRIVATE

JESSICA LYNCH MADE HEADLINES

IN 2003 WHEN HE WAS CAPTURED

AND HELD BY IRAQI SOLDIERS.

AND THEN HER DRAMATIC RESCUE

WAS SEEN AROUND THE WORLD,

AND SHE BECAME AN INSTANT

HERO.

ON THIS VETERANS' DAY, WENDY

TALKS WITH LYNCH ABOUT THE

DAY SHE'LL NEVER FORGET.

THE THINGS THAT I

REMEMBER, I REMEMBER VERY

CLEAR.

IT SEEMS LIKE IT WAS

YESTERDAY.

WE'RE GOING IN.

THE WAVES OF HELICOPTERS

AND GUNSHOTS ROLLING

THROUGH.

COME ON, MAN, LET'S GET

THIS GIRL.

I REMEMBER THAT MOMENT

AND JUST HOW SCARED I WAS.

IT'S OKAY.

THE UNITED STATES ARMY

SUPPLY CONVOY WAS AMBUSHED

BY IRREGULAR IRAQI FORCES.

Wendy: NINE DAYS

EARLIER, IN LATE MARCH OF

2003, 19-YEAR-OLD ARMY

PRIVATE JESSICA LYNCHES OF

WEST VIRGINIA EXPERIENCED

WHAT SHE CALLS THE DEADLIEST

DAY.

HER SUPPLY CONVOY TOOK A

WRONG TURN, WAS AMBUSHED AND

CAME UNDER HEAVY FIRE.

HER GUN JAMMED.

ALL SHE COULD DO WAS CLOSE

HER EYES AND PRAY.

THE NEXT THING SHE KNEW, SHE

WAS IN AN IRAQI HOSPITAL,

WITH A FRACTURED SPINE,

BROKEN ARM, AND SHATTERED

LEFT LEG, AND NO MEMORY OF

THE PAST THREE HOURS.

Wendy: THERE WERE ALL

KINDS OF STORIES AND RUMORS

ABOUT WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED

TO YOU, WHETHER YOU WERE

TORTURED OR SEXUALLY

ABUSED.

THERE ARE REPORTS THAT

SAID THIS IS WHAT OCCURRED.

AND THEY HAVE MEDICAL

EVIDENCE SAYING THIS AND

THAT TOOK PLACE, BUT I DON'T

REALLY SPEAK ABOUT IT

BECAUSE I DON'T REMEMBER

IT.

I WASN'T ALERT AND CONSCIOUS

AT THE TIME.

Wendy: WHAT LYNCH DOES

REMEMBER IS THE EXCELLENT

MEDICAL CARE SHE RECEIVED

FROM THE IRAQI DOCTORS AND

NURSES.

THEY ALMOST BECAME, LIKE,

MY GUARDIANS.

I FELT WEIRD.

THIS IS WEIRD TO SAY, BUT I

REALLY FELT LIKE THEY WERE

MY PROTECTORS.

Wendy: YOU WERE

SURPRISED THAT THE IRAQI

DOCTORS WERE TRYING TO KEEP

YOU ALIVE.

RIGHT.

Wendy: WERE YOU A

STRONG BELIEVE IN CHRIST AT

THE TIME?

YEAH.

BECAUSE, TO BE HONEST, I HAD

NOBODY ELSE TO RELY ON BUT

HIM.

I HAD NO ONE TO TALK TO.

Wendy: ALTHOUGH SHE

DIDN'T KNOW IT AT THE TIME,

HER BEST FRIEND, WHO DROVE

THEIR VEHICLE, DIED IN THE

SAME HOSPITAL.

11 FELLOW SOLDIERS HAD BEEN

KILLED.

OTHERS WERE WOUNDED OR

CAPTURED.

THEN, ON APRIL 1st, SHE

HEARD THE SOUND OF FREEDOM.

IT TOOK ME A LITTLE BIT

TO ACTUALLY RELIE REALIZE

WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

AND THEN EVERYTHING STARTED

HAPPENING SO FAST.

THEY WERE SURROUNDING ME.

THE MAIN GOAL WAS JUST TO

GET ME OUTSIDE OF THE

HOSPITAL AS QUICKLY AS

POSSIBLE.

TO GET ME INSIDE OF THE

HELICOPTER.

TO GET TO KUWAIT, WHERE, YOU

KNOW, IT WAS A SAFE HAVEN,

AND WE WERE OUT OF ENEMY

ZONE.

YOU'RE FREE NOW, AND

WE'RE GOING TO GO TO

KUWAIT.

Wendy: ALMOST FOUR

MONTHS LATER, LYNCH CAME

HOME TO A HERO'S WELCOME,

AND LATER RECEIVED THREE

MEDALS, INCLUDING THE PURPLE

HEART.

ALTHOUGH NO LONGER IN THE

HEADLINES, LYNCH STILL

CARRIES THE TRAUMA BOTH

PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY.

I HAVE REALLY BAD

NIGHTMARES WHERE THESE IRAQI

MEN ARE CHASING ME.

AND IT IS THE SAME DREAM

THAT -- OR NIGHTMARE -- THAT

OCCURS EVERY SINGLE TIME.

IT IS GETTING UP EVERY

MORNING AND PUTTING ON MY

BRACE AND THE WHAT-IF

SITUATION.

Wendy: YOU WEAR A BRACE

ON YOUR LEG?

I DO.

I HAVE A HEAVY BRACE I WEAR

BECAUSE OF THE NERVE DAMAGE

THAT OCCURRED WITHIN MY

BACK.

I LOST ALL FEELING ON MY

LEFT SIDE.

Wendy: IN THE PAST

DECADE, JESSICA CO-WROTE A

"NEW YORK TIMES"

BEST-SELLER, EARNED HER

TEACHING DEGREE, AND BECAME

A MOTHER TO A LITTLE GIRL.

NOW SHE HAS ADDED ACTRESS TO

HER RESUME, PLAYING A

SOLDIER IN "VIRTUOUS."

A FILM CELEBRATING THE

VIRTUOUS WOMAN IN TODAY'S

SOCIETY.

Wendy: DID YOU EVER

THINK YOU WOULD BE ACTING?

NO, NO, NO.

THIS IS SOMETHING COMPLETELY

OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE.

BUT I'M GLAD I GAVE IT A

SHOT AND I AM PART OF THIS

FILM.

Wendy: JESSICA SAYS 11

YEARS AND 21 SURGERIES

LATER, SHE IS STILL

UNCOMFORTABLE TO THE LABEL

"HERO," AND POINTS TO THOSE

BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN SERVING

RIGHT NOW ON THE FRONT LINES

FOR OUR FREEDOM.

WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO

PRAY AND SUPPORT THEM UNTIL

THEY'RE ALL HOME SAFELY.

Wendy: WENDY GRIFFITH,

CBN NEWS.

Terry: WHAT A BRAVE

WOMAN.

WE THANK HER FOR HER SERVICE

AND FOR HER COURAGE.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, A WORLD

WAR II VET WHO FLEW WITH

BOMBS IN HIS PAYLOAD AND

ANGELS ON HIS WING.

WE MADE IT A HABIT, WHEN

WE GOT IN IMPOSSIBLE DANGER

OR ANYTHING, WE PRAYED TO

THE LORD.

EVERY TIME I TOOK OFF, I

PRAYED TO THE LORD.

EVERY TIME I GOT BACK, I

GAVE HIM THANKS.

Terry: HEAR HOW HE

SURVIVED AFTER HIS PLANE GOT

HIT MORE THAN 40 TIMES.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: I CAN REMEMBER

BACK WHEN THE JAPANESE HIT

PEARL HARBOR, AND I REMEMBER

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT TALKING

ABOUT THE DASTARDLY ATTACK

BY THE JAPANESE AND WE'RE

NOW AT WAR.

THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF

WORLD WAR II.

AND PEOPLE INVOLVED IN IT

WERE CALLED AMERICA'S

GREATEST GENERATION.

AND OF THE 16 MILLION BRAVE

MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVED IN

WORLD WAR II, LESS THAN 7%

OF THEM ARE STILL ALIVE

TODAY.

CBN'S DAVE KITGARTH SAT DOWN

WITH ONE ARMY VET, AIRMAN

RALPH DAVIS, WHO TOLD US HE

SURVIVED THE WAR THANKS TO

SOME DIVINE WINGMEN.ñ

VETERANS' DAY IS STILL A

WONDERFUL DAY.

I THINK THAT ANYBODY WHO

LEVELS THEIR COUNTRY AND

WILLING TO SERVE --

VETERANS' DAY IS JUST AN

OBSERVANCE OF WHAT WE DID IN

TRYING TO KEEP OUR COUNTRY

FREE.

Reporter: EVERY

VETERANS' DAY, 91-YEAR-OLD

RETIRED MAJOR RALPH DAVIS

PROUDLY DISPLAYS THE STARS

AND STRIPES ON HIS FRONT

PORCH IN MEMORY OF HIS

FELLOW SERVICEMEN.

THAT FLAG MEANS A LOT TO

ME.

A LOT OF.

Reporter: YOU KNOW WHAT

IT TOOK TO BE ABLE TO HAVE

THE FREEDOM TO EVEN PUT IT

UP.

AND I LOST A LOT OF

FRIENDS, TOO.

Reporter: IN THE WAKE

OF THE JAPANESE ATTACK ON

PEARL HARBOR, MANY YOUNG MEN

OF RALPH'S GENERATION

ENLISTED.

IT IS A FEAT OF WAR.

Reporter: RALPH WAS 17

WHEN HE AND HIS OLDER

BROTHER CONVINCED HIS

PARENTS TO SIGN RALPH'S

ENLISTMENT PAPERS, TO JOIN

THE U.S. ARMY AIR CORPS.

I SIGNED THE PAPERS

BEFORE MY MOTHER AND FATHER

EVEN KNEW IT.

Reporter: RALPH SERVED

IN THE READY RESERVES BEFORE

HE WAS CALLED UP TO WAR IN

ACTIVE DUTY.

HE WENT TO ITALY AS A BALL

GUNNER ON A B-24 BOMBER.

MOST OF THE TIME I DIDN'T

SEE ANYTHING, EXCEPT THE

GROUND BELOW ME.

I COULD TELL IF OUR MISSION

WAS SUCCESSFUL BY THE FLAMES

OF THE SMOKE OF OUR BOMBS.

Reporter: THE

LONG-RANGE BOMBER FLEW DEEP

INTO NAZI-OCCUPIED AREAS,

DROPPING THEIR PAYLOADS ON

TARGETS, TO CRIPPLE HITLER'S

WAR MACHINES.

ONE AIRMAN SAID IT WAS SO

HEAVY YOU COULD WALK ACROSS

IT.

THEY HAD A SPOT THAT WAS

SIX GUNS IN ONE PLACE.

THEY WERE CALLED A BATTERY.

THAT BATTERY, WHEN THEY

OPENED UP ON YOU, YOU KNEW

YOU WERE GOING TO GET HIT

FIVE MORE TIMES.

EVERY TIME THE PLANE DID

THIS, YOU COULD HEAR IT HIT,

HITTING HOLES IN IT.

I BELIEVE IT WAS 42 OR 43

HOLES.

Reporter: THE BOMBERS

ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE

FORMATIONS WERE THE MOST

VULNERABLE TO ATTACK FROM

THE GERMANS.

AND THE LOSSES MOUNTED.

THIS IS THE TALE OF OUR

AIRPLANE.

IT CAME IN IN THIS

DIRECTION.

AND THEY COME IN A CIRCLE

LIKE THIS.

AND NONE OF THEM EVER CAME

DOWN THIS WAY.

Reporter: TO FEND OFF

THE ATTACKS, AMERICAN

FIGHTER PILOTS ESCORTED THE

MISSIONS.

RALPH'S 343rd SQUADRON WAS

OFTEN DEFENDED BY THE LITTLE

KNOWN FIGHTER SQUADRON OF

ALL BLACK PILOTS KNOWN AS

THE TUSKY GEAR MEN.

THEY WERE GOOD.

WE FLEW TIME AND AGAIN, AND

THEY NEVER LET ANYTHING

BOTHER US.

Reporter: PREPARING FOR

A MISSION WAS CRITICAL FOR

SUCCESS.

THEY REVIEWED FLIGHT PLANES,

INSPECTED THE PLANE, CHECKED

ORDINANTS, AND THEY PRAYED.

WE MADE IT A HABIT, WHEN

WE GOT IN POSSIBLE DANGER OR

ANYTHING, WE SPOKE TO THE

LORD BEFORE WE WENT.

Reporter: RALPH CARRIED

A NEW BIBLE, AND HE

MEMORIZED SCRIPTURES FOR

STRENGTH AND COMFORT.

WHAT WAS THE SCRIPTURE THAT

WAS REALLY IMPORTANT TO

YOU.

THE 91 PSALM, THE 11th

VERSE.

THAT'S THE ONE IN MY POCKET

HERE RIGHT NOW.

"HE WILL PUT HIS ANGELS IN

CHARGE OF YOU, AND THEY WILL

WATCH OVER YOU WHEREVER YOU

GO."

I BELIEVE IT!

I KNOW IT'S TRUE.

Reporter: WERE YOU

AWARE OF THAT WHEN IT WAS

HAPPENING, THAT THE LORD WAS

REALLY WITH YOU?

YES, I KNEW IT.

EVERY TIME I TOOK OFF, I

PRAYED TO THE LORD.

EVERY TIME I GOT BACK, I

GIVE HIM THANKS.

Reporter: THE AIRMEN

WERE WELL AWARE OF THE

STAKES.

IF ACCURATE, THEIR BOMB

RAIDS COULD HASTEN THE END

OF THE WAR.

THEY FLEW FOR LOVE OF

COUNTRY AND OUT OF

TREMENDOUS RESPECT FOR THE

MEN FIGHTING AND DYING ON

THE GROUND.

I'VE HAD FRIENDS THAT

LANDED ON D-DAY AND WALKED

ALL THE WAY ACROSS FRANCE

AND GERMANY.

THE PEOPLE THAT WAS ON THE

GROUND WAS DIGGING FOX HOLES

AND THERE WAS SNOW AND

EVERYTHING ELSE.

I WAS AMAZED THAT WHEN I GOT

HOME THAT NIGHT, I HAD A

PLACE TO SLEEP.

Reporter: AFTER THE

BATTLE OF THE BULGE, THE

WAR'S END SEEMED

INEVITABLE.

BUT IN PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT'S

CHAT TO THE NATION IN 1945,

HE REMINDED THE TROOPS THAT

EVERYTHING WE ARE,

EVERYTHING WE HAVE IS AT

STAKE.

OUR LOSSES WILL BE HEAVY,

BUT WE AND OUR ALLIES WILL

GO ON FIGHTING TOGETHER TO

ULTIMATE TOTAL VICTORY.

Reporter: 121 DAYS

LATER, GERMANY SURRENDERED.

THE 15th AIR FORCE ALONE

DROPPED OVER 15,000 TONNES

,000 TONS ON ENEMY TARGETS.

AND 21,000 AIRMEN MADE THE

ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.

WE WOULD EITHER LIVE OR

DIE TOGETHER.

THAT'S WHAT IT AMOUNTED TO.

AND A LOT OF THEM DID.

I WAS UP THERE TO PROTECT

OUR PEOPLE, PROTECT OUR

COUNTRY, YES, SIR.

Reporter: RALPH'S CREW

FLEW 22 SUCCESSFUL

MISSIONS.

I AM STILL, THIS DAY,

AMAZED THAT THE LORD TOOK

CARE OF US WITHOUT A

SCRATCH, NOT A ONE OF US ON

THAT 10-MAN CREW GOT HURT.

Reporter: AFTER WORLD

WAR II, THE AIR FORCE SENT

RALPH TO COLLEGE AND HE

BECAME AN OFFICER.

THEN AFTER 20 YEARS OF

SERVICE, HE RETIRED A

MAJOR.

THIS VETERANS' DAY, HIS

ADVICE TO SERVICEMEN IN WAR

OR PEACE IS TIMELESS.

IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE A

SOLDIER OR AN AIRMAN, THEY

NEED THE PROTECTION OF THE

LORD.

THAT'S THE MAIN THING THAT

YOU CAN DO.

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE YOU

CAN DO.

YOU'RE CALLED.

MY COUNTRY MEANS ALL TO ME.

AND THE LORD MEANS MORE THAN

THAT.

Pat: THE GREATEST

GENERATION.

WE DON'T REALIZE WHAT WOULD

HAVE HAPPENED IF WE HAD NOT

DEFEATED ADOLPH HITLER AND

THE NAZIS.

EUROPE WOULD HAVE BEEN UNDER

THEIR DOMINATION.

THEY WOULD HAVE CONTROLLED

THE WORLD.

WE WOULD HAVE ULTIMATELY

HAVE BEEN COW-TOWING TO NATS

SERIES.

IT TOOK BRAVERY AND SLOGING

THROUGH THE MUD AND 8,000 OR

10,000 DEATHS ON D-DAY.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE THING.

WE WERE DETERMINED AS A

NATION WE WERE GOING TO

WIN.

I BELIEVE IN THE WORDS OF

GENERAL MCCARTHUR, IN WAR,

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR

VICTORY.

YOU DON'T PLAY WITH WAR.

YOU GO IN TO WIN OR YOU

DON'T GO IN AT ALL.

UNDER ROOSEVELT AMERICA WAS

UNITED.

WE WERE A UNITED PEOPLE

FIGHTING A HIDEOUS ENEMY.

WE WERE DETERMINED WE WERE

GOING TO WIN.

AND, INDEED, WITH BRAVE

ALLIES LIKE OUR BRITISH

FRIENDS AND OTHERS, WE

PREVAILED.

AND AMERICA WILL PREVAIL IF

WE STAND TOGETHER AND HAVE

MEN LIKE YOU JUST SAW, LIKE

RALPH DAVIS, WHO BELIEVES IN

THE LORD AND WHO WAS QUOTING

THE 91st PSALM WHEN HE

WENT INTO BATTLE.

IT IS HUMBLING TO SEE THESE

MEN.

BUT ON VETERANS' DAY WE

OFFER THEM OUR THANKS, OUR

CONGRATULATIONS, AND OUR

BEST WISHES.

TERRY, I WAS IN ONE WHERE

THE COUNTRY WASN'T WITH US.

IN KOREA, NOBODY CARED.

AND IT WAS A POLICE ACTION,

THEY CALLED IT. AND IT WAS

A NO-WIN SITUATION.

WE SHOULD HAVE GONE IN TO

WIN, AND WE DIDN'T.

WE WERE JUST STRUGGLING.

AND THE MARINES WERE PUT

INTO HIDEOUS SITUATIONS WITH

PUSON, AND BEING ATTACKED BY

THOSE CHINESE IN THE

FREEZING COLD WEATHER.

IT WAS -20° UP IN KOREA,

WHERE I WAS STATIONED FOR A

TIME.

IT WAS MISERABLE

CONDITIONS.

BUT THOSE MARINES, THEY WERE

GREAT HEROS.

GREAT HEROS.

Terry: THEY IS SUCH

PATRIOTIC FERVOR THAT YOU

SEE IN THE HEARTS OF THAT

GENERATION THAT THOUGHT

FOUGHT.

AND VIETNAM SEEMED TO CHANGE

THINGS UP A LITTLE BIT FOR

OUR COUNTRY.

Pat: WELL, THE

POLITICAL LEADERS OF OUR

COUNTRY DELIBERATELY DID NOT

DECIDE TO WIN.

LYNDON B. JOHNSON DID NOT

WANT TO WIN.

HE WANTED TO PLAY WITH IT.

WE DIDN'T BOMB HANOI.

WE DIDN'T GO INTO NORTH

VIETNAM TO BEAT THEM.

WE BEAT THEM -- I MEAN WE

FOUGHT THEM IN SOUTH

VIETNAM, AND THE MEDIA,

UNFORTUNATELY, WAS AGAINST

THE EFFORT.

AND AFTER THE TED OFFENSIVE,

WE WON, BUT WALTER CRONKITE

AND HIS BUDDIES SAID WE LOST

IT.

JOHNSON SAID, I LOST CHRON

CHRONKITE.

Terry: WE PAID A

TERRIBLE PRICE FOR THAT.

COMING UP, A MARINE WHO TOOK

A BULLET IN THE HEAD IN A

LEAP OF FAITH.

PLUS WE'VE GOT YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

DAVID SAYS, "AS A CHRISTIAN,

IS IT OKAY TO BUY A C.D.

THAT IS PERFORMED BY A

MUSLIM ARTIST?"

STAY TUNED FOR "BRING IT

ON."

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB" FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

REPUBLICANS ARE CRITICIZING

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S PUSH FOR

WHAT IS CALLED NET

NEUTRALITY.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS THE MOVE

WILL KEEP THE INTERNET OPEN

AND FREE FOR EVERYBODY.

BUT CRITICS SAY IT WILL

ELIMINATE INTERNET FREEDOM

AND LEADING TO GOVERNMENT

REGULATION OF THE NET.

15 MISSING HIKERS FROM A

CHURCH GROUP HAVE BEEN

RESCUED AND REUNITED WITH

THEIR FAMILIES.

THE GROUP FROM A SEVENTH DAY

ADVENTIST CHURCH FAILED TO

RETURN ON SUNDAY IN THE

MOUNTAINS NEAR LOS ANGELES.

THEY WERE RESCUED BY

HELICOPTER ON MONDAY AFTER

SENDING A TEXT MESSAGE FOR

HELP.

THE GROUP HAD BECOME WET AND

EXHAUSTED FROM REPELLING OUT

OF WATER FALLS, AND SIMPLY

RAN OUT OF DAYLIGHT.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK WITH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: BRANDON BURNES

NEARLY GAVE HIS LIFE SERVING

OUR COUNTRY, AND HE GOT A

BIG THANK YOU COURTESY OF

CBN'S NEWEST MINISTRY,

"HELPING THE HOMEFRONT."

Reporter: BEGINNING IN

2003, THE WORLD'S EYES WERE

GLUED TO IRAQ.

BRANDON BURNES HAD A

FRONT-ROW SEAT IN THE BATTLE

OF BALUJA, WHICH ALMOST COST

HIM HIS LIFE.

I WAS SHOCKED.

THE BULLET WENT INTO MY

BRAIN AND WENT OUT MY HEAD.

I WAS MEDEVACED FROM

FALLUJAH TO BAGHDAD.

Reporter: DOCTORS TOLD

BRANDON HE WOULD NEVER WALK

OR TALK.

HE COULDN'T COPE WITH THAT

NEWS.

I WANTED TO GIVE UP.

Reporter: HOWEVER,

AFTER FOUR YEARS OF PHYSICAL

THERAPY, THIS MARINE CAN

WALK AND TALK.

DURING P.T., HE MET AND

MARRIED LAURA.

BRANDON DOESN'T LET HIS

PARTIAL PARALYSIS PREVENT

HIM FROM TAKING CARE OF HIS

FAMILY.

I WOULDN'T HAVE COME THIS

FAR UNLESS GOD HAS GIVEN ME

THE STRENGTH.

Reporter: BRANDON'S

INJURIES PREVENT HIM FROM

WORKING FULL-TIME.

HE WANTED TO WORK PART-TIME,

THOUGH, FOR A CHURCH

PLANTING MINISTRY NEAR

QUANTICO MARINE BASE.

THE PROBLEM?

QUANTICO IS IN VIRGINIA, AND

THE BURNES LIVE IN MEMPHIS.

THE FAMILY STARTED PACKING

ANYWAY, TRUSTING GOD FOR THE

MOVING MONEY THEY DIDN'T

HAVE.

I DIDN'T WORRY BECAUSE

GOD HAS ALWAYS PROVIDED.

THIS WAS ALL GOING TO COME

TOGETHER.

Reporter: BACK IN

VIRGINIA, THE PASTOR KNEW

THAT COMING UP WITH THE

FUNDS WOULD BE TOUGH.

WE RECOGNIZE IT TAKES

PARTNERS.

PARTNERS LIKE CBN.

Reporter: PASTOR GARMEN

ASKED CBN'S "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT," TO RELOCATE THE

BURNES.

WHILE THEY WERE PACKING UP

THEIR HOME, THEY HAD A

SURPRISE VISITOR.

HOW ARE YOU?

GOOD.

WERE YOU EXPECTING ME

TODAY?

NO.

Reporter: PASTOR GARMEN

TOLD THE BURNINGS THAT

"HELPING THE HOMEFRONT" WILL

PAY FOR THE MOVE.

AND WE'RE GOING TO PAY

YOUR FIRST MONTH'S RENT OF

THE NEW HOME YOU'LL BE

MOVING INTO.

THAT IS AUS TUM.

AWESOME.

Reporter: AND THE

BURNES ARE NOW IN THEIR NEW

HOME AND WORKING WITH THE

MINISTRY.ú

WE WANT TO HELP A GUY

LIKE THAT BE ABLE TO PURSUE

THE DREAMS THAT GOD HAS PUT

IN HIS HEART.

I CANNOT SAY THANK YOU

ENOUGH.

COME HERE.

Terry: "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT" IS JUST ONE OF

THE MANY OUTREACHES AND

MINISTRIES THAT CBN HAS,

WHERE IN THIS PARTICULAR

INSTANCE, WE PARTNER WITH

LOCAL CHURCHES THAT ARE

SUPPORTING OUR VETERANS AND

THEIR FAMILIES.

WE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THEIR LIVES.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A

PART OF ALL WE'RE DOING HERE

AT HOME AND AROUND THE

WORLD, YOU CAN JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

SOME OF YOU ARE ALREADY "700

CLUB" MEMBERS.

CAN I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE

A LOOK AT OUR OTHER CLUB

LEVELS.

IF YOU'RE A GENERAL "700

CLUB" MEMBER, YOU HAVE A

COMMITMENT OF $20 A MONTH.

MAYBE YOU WOULD CONSIDER

GOING UP TO "700 CLUB" GOLD

AT $40.

AND THERE IS THE THOUSAND

LEVEL AT $84 A MONTH.

AND WE HAVE A GROUP WE CALL

THE FOUNDERS, AND THEY COME

IN AT $417.

AND WE EVEN HAVE SOMETHING

CALLED THE CHAIRMAN'S

CIRCLE, AND THEY GIVE GIFTS

OF $10,000 OR MORE A YEAR.

ASK THE LORD WHAT HE WOULD

HAVE YOU DO.

BECAUSE YOU AND I CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU

FOR JOINING "THE 700 CLUB,"

IS TO SEND YOU "LIVING UNDER

GOD'S BLESSING."

IT IS A TEACHING BY PAT AND

SPHWOORGORDON THAT WE

REALLY THINK WILL MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

YOU CALL AND MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE ELSE'S

LIFE, AND WE'LL SEND THIS

OUT TO YOU.

DO YOU WANT TO DO E-MAILS?

THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

DAVID.

"HELLO, PAT, AND ALL THE

TEAM.

SINCE I WAS A BOY, I HAVE

ENJOYED THE MUSIC OF AN

ARTIST WHO CONVERTED TO

ISLAM.

AS A CHRISTIAN, IS IT OKAY

TO BUY HIS MUSIC, SINCE HE

CAN SUPPORT THE CAUSES OF

ISLAM?"

Pat: BUYING A MUSLIM

C.D. IS NO BIG DEAL.

THE QUESTION IS, WHAT DO YOU

FEEL?

IF YOU FEEL IT IS WRONG,

DON'T DO IT.

IT'S THAT SIMPLE, WHATEVER

IS NOT OF FAITH IS SIN.

YOU HAVE TO ANSWER THAT ONE

YOURSELF.

Terry: THIS IS MARK,

PAT, WHO SAYS, "MY DAUGHTER

HAS BEEN LIVING WITH A MAN

FOR THREE YEARS AND HAS A

BABY BY HIM.

SHE HAS TOLD HER KIDS THAT

THEY ARE MARRIED, BUT SHE

WON'T MARRY HIM BECAUSE SHE

HAS HAD TWO HUSBANDS

ALREADY.

SHE TOLD ME ONCE IT IS

EASIER TO GET FORGIVENESS

THAN PERMISSION.

I TELL HER FORGIVENESS IS

FOR WHEN YOU FALL INTO SIN

AND NOT FOR PRE-MEDITATED

SIN.

WHO IS RIGHT?"

Pat: YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY

RIGHT ON THAT ONE.

THIS GIRL IS PLAYING GAMES.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF

BRINGING UP SHE HAD.

IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A GOOD

WUB.

ONE.

A COUPLE OF MARRIAGES

ALREADY.

SHE IS OBVIOUSLY

UNDISCIPLINED.

REBELLIOUS.

AND NOW SHE WON'T ENTER INTO

A STABLE RELATIONSHIP EVEN

THOUGH SHE HAS A CHILD BY

THIS MAN.

SHE IS TEMPTING GOD.

I MEAN, MAN, SHE IS WALKING

ON THE EDGE.

YOU THINK NIK WALLENDA WAS

TAKING A CHANCE, SHE IS

REALLY ON A TIGHTROPE.

I WOULD CERTAINLY PRAY FOR

HER AND I WOULD WARN HER

BECAUSE SHE IS ASKING FOR

IT.

AND IT IS GOING TO BE REALLY

TOUGH.

DON'T TELL ME IT IS EASIER

TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS THAN

PERMISSION -- THAT'S A BIG

JOKE, SURE.

NOT WHEN YOU'RE DEALING WITH

THE LORD.

SOONER OR LATER GOD IS GOING

TO SAY, THAT'S ALL SHE

WROTE, BABY, AND IT'S GOING

TO BE TOUGH.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "WHY DO PEOPLE FALL

OUT WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

HEAVIER WHEN IT HITS THEM?"

Pat: YOU REMEMBER WHEN

THEY CAME TO ARREST JESUS,

AND THEY SAID, WE'VE COME TO

JESUS, AND HE SAID, I'M THE

ONE, AND THEY FELL BACK.

WHEN YOU'RE IN THE PRESENCE

OF THE POWER OF GOD, WHETHER

IT IS AN ANGEL OR WHETHER IT

IS THE OVERWHELMING POWER OF

GOD, THE FLESH THAT WE HAVE

JUST ISN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO

STAND UP AGAINST THAT

SITUATION.

SOME OF THIS FALLING OUT IS

FAKE.

SOME OF IT IS CONTRIVED AND

ALL OF THIS OTHER, BUT WHEN

THE REAL POWER OF GOD IS

THERE, THE PERSON CAN'T

STAND.

THAT'S WHAT IT AMOUNTS TO.

WE HAVE CASES, FOR EXAMPLE,

DANIEL, WHO WAS IN FRONT OF

AN ANGEL.

AN ANGELIC BEING, AND HIS

STRENGTH LEFT HIM.

HE JUST COLLAPSED BECAUSE IT

IS SO OVERWHELMING, THE

OTHER POWER THAT IS INHERENT

IN ONE OF THESE ANGELIC

BEINGS OR CERTAINLY IN THE

HOLY SPIRIT HIMSELF.

Terry: CHRISTY

SAYS, "OUR ADULT PRODIGAL

DAUGHTER IS LIVING WITH HER

ABUSIVE BOYFRIEND AND IS NOW

PREGNANT.

WE HAVE NOT SUPPORTED HER

LIFE TILE LIFESTYLE, AND WE

HAVE TAKEN A STANCE AGAINST

HIM BECAUSE HE IS VERBALLY

ABUSED.

WE TRIED TO DO BIBLE TIME

WITH HIM, BUT WHEN HE POSTED

A NAKED PICTURE OF HER ON

Facebook, AND GAVE HER

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL, WE HAVE

SEVERED TIES.

WE HAVE KEPT RELATIONSHIP

WITH HER, BUT THEN HE TOLD

HER SHE COULDN'T COME AROUND

US ANYMORE.

WE OFFERED TO HELP IF SHE

LEAVES HIM, BUT ALL SHE SAYS

IS WE HAVE TO ACCEPT HIM OR

WE WON'T HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP.

WHAT DO WE DO NOW?"

Pat: YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO THAT

DAUGHTER.

IT WILL BREAK YOUR HEART.

YOU HAVE TO PRAY FOR HER.

AND YOU HAVE TO SAY, I LOVE

YOU, AND IF THE TIME COMES

WHERE YOU WANT TO STRAIGHTEN

OUT, WE'LL ALWAYS BE HERE

FOR YOU.

BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO BUY

INTO THIS LIFESTYLE.

YOU'VE MADE YOUR BED AND

YOU'RE GOING TO LIE IN IT.

DON'T ASK US FOR HELP.

BUT WE'LL CERTAINLY PRAY FOR

YOU.

YOU DON'T WANT TO BE AN

ENABLER.

MY GOODNESS, WHAT KIND OF

GIRL IS SHE?

AND WHY DOES SHE WANT TO BE

HURT?

IT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND

THESE WOMEN WHO HAVE AN

ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP, A MAN

WHO BEATS THEM UP, AND YET

THEY KEEP GOING BACK TO

THEM.

SOMEHOW THEY FEEL LIKE THEY

DESERVE IT.

SHE ALL TO LEAVE THIS GUY

RIGHT NOW.

SHE OUGHT TO BRING CHARGES

AGAINST HIM.

HE IS DOING SOME PRETTY

TERRIBLE STUFF, INCLUDING

PASSING OUT -- I DON'T KNOW

IF YOU CONSIDER PASSING OUT

NAKED PICTURES OF YOUR

GIRLFRIEND IS PORN, BUT I

DARE SAY HE IS BREAKING SOME

LAWS.

ALL I CAN SAY IS, IN YOUR

CASE, CRY OUT TO GOD FOR

THAT DAUGHTER, AND DON'T

STOP PRAYING FOR HER.

LET HER KNOW YOU'RE PRAYING

FOR HER.

BUT LET HER KNOW YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO BUY INTO ANY OF

THIS.

AND SHE HAS GOT TO COME OUT

OF IT.

SHE'S GOT TO MAKE HER OWN

DECISION.

SHE IS OLD ENOUGH, BIG

ENOUGH.

SHE'S AN ADULT.

SHE HAS BEEN CAPTURED, AND

YOU NEED TO PRAY THAT SHE'LL

BE DELIVERED.

SHE'S GOT TO SAY YES.

LIKE THE PRODIGAL SON, THE

BIBLE SAYS HE CAME TO

HIMSELF.

SHE'S GOT TO COME TO HERSELF

AND SAY, I'VE GOT TO GO BACK

TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE.

BUT SHE HASN'T DONE THAT

YET.

DON'T BE AN ENABLER.

DON'T HELP HER.

DON'T GIVE HER MONEY AND ALL

OF THAT.

DON'T DO THAT.

LEAVE HER.

PRAY FOR HER.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: SOMETIMES OUT OF

THEIR MISTAKES COMES

WISDOM.

Pat: PRAY, TERRY, OR

OTHERWISE THAT GIRL IS GOING

TO END UP DEAD.

FOR A PARENT, IT BREAKS YOUR

HEART.

Terry: IT DOES BREAK

YOUR HEART.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE FOR YOUR E-MAILS

TODAY.

BUT WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

TO YOU.

WE ENJOY HEARING FROM YOU

WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR

QUESTIONS.

UP NEXT, HE WENT FROM ONE OF

THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN

UNIVERSITIES TO ONE OF THE

BIGGEST PRODUCERS IN

HOLLYWOOD.

AND NOW HE WANTS TO SHARE

THE REAL SECRET TO SUCCESS.

WE'RE GOING TO SIT DOWN WITH

JOHNNIE MOORE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: HERE IS A SIMPLE

QUESTION THAT MAY REQUIRE A

NOT SO SIMPLE ANSWER: WHAT

ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO WITH

YOUR LIFE?

CONSIDERING THAT THE AVERAGE

PERSON BOUNCES BETWEEN SEVEN

CAREERS IN HIS OR HER

LIFETIME, PEOPLE MAY THINK

IT IS HARD TO FIND EXACTLY

WHAT THEY'VE BEEN PUT ON

THIS EARTH TO DO.

BUT ACCORDING TO AUTHOR

JOHNNIE MOORE, THOSE PEOPLE

ARE WRONG.

Reporter: CHILDREN SEEM

TO HAVE NO PROBLEM ANSWERING

LIFE'S TOUGH QUESTIONS.

LIKE, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE

WHEN YOU GROW UP?

BUT AS ADULTS, MAKING THOSE

LIFE-CHANGING DECISIONS CAN

BE TOUGH, ESPECIALLY WHEN

WE'RE TRYING TO FOLLOW GOD'S

WILL.

JOHNNIE MOORE SAYS IT IS NOT

AS HARD AS PEOPLE MAKE IT.

IN FACT, BEFORE HE AGREED TO

TAKE OVER AS CHIEF-OF-STAFF

FOR A TOP HOLLYWOOD

PRODUCER, MARK BERNETT, HE

ASKED GOD FOR AN ANSWER.

JOHNNIE DEMYSTIFIES HOW TO

MAKE THOSE TOUGH DECISIONS

BY DISCOVERING AND FOLLOWING

GOD'S WILL.

Terry: JOINING US NOW

IS THE AUTHOR OF "WHAT AM I

SUPERVISED TO DSUPPOSED TO

DO WITH MY LIFE," JOHNNIE

MOORE.

THANKS, TERRY.

GREAT TO BE HERE.

GOD'S WILL IS HARD FIND -- I

KNOW IT SOUNDS REALLY

UNUSUAL BECAUSE GOD'S WILL

IS ONE OF THE FREQUENTLY

USED PHRASES IN CHRISTIAN

HISTORY.

BUT ACTUALLY, IT ISN'T.

IT IS A RECENTLY USED PHRASE

IN MODERN CHRISTIAN

HISTORY.

Terry: A LOT OF PEOPLE

THINK OF GOD'S WILL AS KIND

OF A MOVING TARGET.

MAYBE YOU HIT IT, AND MAYBE

YOU DON'T.

YOU SAY THAT'S NOT SO.

NO, NO.

THE BIBLE DOESN'T TEACH IF

YOU MAKE THIS ONE WRONG

DECISION, YOUR LIFE IS

MESSED UP FOR THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

YOU AND I HAVE TALKED TO

PEOPLE WHO LOOK BACK 10

YEARS EARLIER AND THEY DID

THIS ONE THING AND THEIR

WHOLE WORLD IS FALLING

APART.

BUT ACTUALLY THERE ARE ONLY

TWO MAIN PRINS PELOSI.

PRINCIPLES.

THE FIRST IS GOD'S WILL IS

MORE ABOUT WHO YOU ARE THAN

WHERE YOU ARE AND WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

GOD'S WILL IS MORE ABOUT WHO

YOU ARE THAN WHERE YOU ARE

OR WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THE

ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION

INVOLVES A VOCATION.

VOCATION.

STUDENTS WERE TALKING TO ME,

AND SAYING, WHAT AM I

SUPPOSED TO DO WITH MY

LIFE.

WHAT IS GOD'S WILL FOR ME,

AND IT WAS STRESSFUL.

HOW MANY KIDS OF PARENTS

THAT ARE WATCHING RIGHT NOW

ARE WONDERING WHAT THEY'RE

SUPPOSED TO DO.

ONE OF THE APPOINTMENTS

POINTS I MAKE IN THE BOOK IS

IT IS MORE ABOUT WHO YOU ARE

THAN WHERE YOU ARE OR WHAT

YOU'RE DOING.

YOU TAKE YOU WITH YOU

WHEREVER YOU GO, RIGHT?

IN THE BIBLE, THIS PHRASE

"GOD'S WILL" IS USED VERY

INFREQUENTLY.

THE PRIMARY USE, PAUL

WRITES, THIS IS GOD'S WILL,

THAT YOU BE SANCTIFIED.

IT DOESN'T SAY THIS IS GOD'S

WILL, THAT YOU'RE A

CARPENTER.

NO, THIS IS GOD'S WILL THAT

YOU BE HOLY.

WE THINK YOU HAVE TO MAKE

THIS DECISION OR THAT

DECISION OR YOUR WRONG, BUT,

ACTUALLY, GOD GIVES US A LOT

OF FREEDOM IN OUR DECISION.

BECAUSE YOU TAKE YOU WITH

YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.

Terry: AND THE SECOND

ONE -- BECAUSE I WANT TO

MAKE SURE WE GET TO THE TWO

OF THESE.

THE SECOND ONE IS THAT

GOD'S WILL IS MORE ABOUT

GOING UNTIL GOD STOPS YOU,

THAN WAITING FOR HIM TO TELL

YOU TO GO.

Terry: THAT BRINGS UP

MY QUESTION, THAT A LOT OF

PEOPLE ARE SO FEAR-FILLED,

THEY COME TO A FORK IN THE

ROAD AND THERE IS A DECISION

TO MAKE, AND THEY DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?

MAKE A DECISION.

WE GET IN MORE TROUBLE BY

INDECISIVE.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT MAKING

RECKLESS DECISIONS OR

ILLOGICAL DECISIONS, BUT I'M

TALKING ABOUT USING THE GOOD

BRAIN THAT GOD HAS GIVEN

YOU.

Terry: WHAT ABOUT

WAITING -- I HEAR THIS ALL

OF THE TIME, I'M WAITING ON

GOD.

I'M LOOKING FOR A SIGN.

YOU SAY NOT NECESSARILY THE

WISEST THING TO DO.

JESUS SAID, IT IS A

WICKED AND ADULTEROUS

GENERATION THAT ASKS FOR A

SIGN.

CAN IT BE ANY MORE CLEAR

THAN THAT?

PEOPLE THINK OF THE PEOPLE

LIKE THE APOSTLE PAUL, AND

MOST PEOPLE IMAGINE THAT THE

APOSTLE PAUL IS BEGGING AND

PLEADING FOR GOD TO SHOW HIM

WHERE TO GO.

WHEN YOU READ THE STORY OF

PAUL, HE WASN'T BEGGING AND

PLEADING WITH GOD TO SHOW

HIM WHERE TO GO.

WHERE DID HE GO?

HE WENT TO THE MECCA CITY ON

THE ROMAN ROAD.

AND OCCASIONALLY HE GOT A

VISION IN THE NIGHT THAT

SAID DON'T GO THAT WAY.

SO MOVE IN THE MOST LOGICAL

DIRECTION AND THEN GOD WILL

STOP YOU.

HE WILL CLOSE DOORS, BUT

STOP WAITING FOR HIM TO OPEN

EVERY DOOR.

Terry: YOU SAY WE'RE

CUSTOM DESIGNED.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THIS?

GOD HAS BEEN WORKING ON

YOU LONGER THAN YOU COULD

WORRY ABOUT IT.

IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND

THE WORLD PAUL GREW UP IN,

YOU ONLY NEED TO UNDERSTAND

ROMAN POLITICS, GREEK

CULTURE, AND JEWISH

RELIGION.

I GREW UP THINKING THAT PAUL

WAS THE LEAST LIKELY TO

CHANGE THE WORLD.

HE WAS LIKE A TERRORIST --

THIS WAS A CRAZY THING.

PUT PAUL WAS A ROMAN

CITIZEN.

AND PAUL WAS A PHARISEE

TRAINED BY THE TOP TEACHER

OF HIS TIME, GOMALIO.

HE JUST NEEDED GOD TO

INTERRUPT HIS LIFE.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE

FACING CROSSROADS IN THEIR

LIFE, AND THEY'RE ASKING THE

QUESTION "WHAT AM I SUPPOSED

TO DO WITH MY LIFE," AND

THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

THE POINT I MAKE IS JUST GET

MOVING IN THE MOST LOGICAL

DIRECTION.

SO MANY PEOPLE ARE CAUGHT IN

A DECISION PARALYSIS, AND

THEY WASTE SO MUCH OF THEIR

LIFE.

THIS IS THE STORY OF MY

GENERATION, THE MILLENNIAL

GENERATION.

Terry: AND THIS BOOK IS

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS ARE

SOLD.

JOHNNIE, WHAT A GOOD WORD.

BLESS YOU.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PSALM 91: 9 AND 10: "IF YOU

SAY THE LORD IS MY REFUGE

AND YOU MAKE THE MOST HIGH

YOUR DWELLING, NO HARM WILL

OVERTAKE YOU, NO DISASTER

WILL COME NEAR YOUR TENTS."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

DON'T MISS IT.

GOD BLESS YOU.

BYE-BYE.
