THE MOTOR JUST QUIT.

Wendy: TRAPPED IN A

BURNING PLANE.

THERE WAS NOW A HOLE IN

THE SIDE OF THE FUSELAGE.

Wendy: AND HURTLING

TOWARDS THE GROUND, A SKY

DRIVER WITH SECONDS TO

LIVE.

I COULD FEEL LIFE LEAKING

OUT OF ME.

I WANT TO LIVE.

I WANT TO BE ALIVE.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

THE REACTION HAS BEEN SWIFT

TO PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

EXECUTIVE ORDER ON ILLEGAL

IMMIGRATION.

SUPPORTERS ARE CHEERING IT,

WHILE CRITICS SAY HE IS

GOING BEYOND HIS

CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY AND

HE IS ACTING LIKE A KING.

Terry: THE DEBATE IS

FAR FROM OVER BECAUSE THE

ISSUE IS LIKELY TO END UP IN

COURT.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: WITH THE

STROKE OF HIS PEN TODAY,

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL SPARE

NEARLY FIVE MILLION ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS FROM GETTING

DEPORTED.

President Obama:

SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT WE

SHALL NOT OPPRESS A

STRANGER, FOR WE KNOW THE

HEART OF A STRANGER.

WE WERE STRANGERS ONCE,

TOO.

Reporter: THE MAIN

WINNERS ARE IMMIGRANTS WHO

HAVE BEEN HERE ILLEGALLY

MORE THAN FIVE YEARS, WHO'S

CHILDREN ARE CITIZENS OR

LEGAL RESIDENTS.

AFTER PASSING A CRIMINAL

BACKGROUND CHECK, PAYING

TAXES, AND REGISTERING, THEY

CAN STAY IN THE U.S.

TEMPORARILY AND WORK

LAUGHFULLY.

THE PRESIDENT'S ACTION WILL

ALSO MAKE IT EASIER FOR

HIGHLY-SKILLED IMMIGRANTS TO

STAY AND WORK IN THE U.S.

HE ALSO PROMISES TO KEEP

DEPORTING CRIMINALS,

FOCUSING LAW ENFORCEMENT ON

WHAT HE CALLS THE REAL

THREAT TO AMERICAN

SECURITY.

President Obama:

FELONS, NOT FAMILIES,

CRIMINALS, NOT CHILDREN,

GANG MEMBERS, NOT A MOM WHO

IS WORKING HARD TO PROVIDE

FOR HER KIDS.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH

MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS BENEFIT FROM THE

PRESIDENT'S ACTIONS, SOME

SIX MILLION ARE LEFT OUT.

MANY HISPANICS EVANGELICAL

PASTORS SAY THEY SEE THE

DESTRUCTIVE EFFECTS

DEPORTATIONS HAVE ON

FAMILIES, BY BREAKING THEM

UP.

REVEREND TONY SUAREZ TELLS

CBN NEWS HE WANTS FAMILIES

TO BE ABLE TO STAY

TOGETHER.

CHILDREN HAVE BEEN LOSING

THEIR PARENTS, SPOUSES HAVE

BEEN LOSING THEIR HUSBAND OR

WIFE.

THIS IS ABOUT FAMILY

REUNIFICATION.

THIS IS ABOUT BRINGING

FAMILIES THAT LOVE THE LORD,

THAT BELIEVE IN THE VALUE OF

LIFE AND MARRIAGE, TO KEEP

THEM TOGETHER IN THIS

COUNTRY THAT THEY REALLY,

GENUINELY LOVE.

Reporter: FOR SUAREZ,

THE PRESIDENT IS PROVIDING

LEADERSHIP IN AN AREA WHERE

CONGRESS HAS FAILED.

HOWEVER, SPEAKER JOHN

BOEHNER SAYS THE PRESIDENT,

BY ACTING UNILATERALLY AND

GOING AROUND CONGRESS, HAS

IGNORED THE WILL OF THE

PEOPLE.

BOEHNER SAYS THAT THE

PRESIDENT SAID IT WOULD LEAD

TO A SURGE IN MORE ILLEGAL

IMMIGRATION.

SHE SAIHE SAID HE WAS NOT A

KING AND NOT THE EMPEROR,

AND THAT HE WAS BOUND BY THE

CONSTITUTION.

HE SAID AN ACTION LIKE THIS

WOULD EXCEED HIS AUTHORITY

AND BE DIFFICULT TO JUSTIFY

LEGALLY.

HE MAY HAVE CHANGED HIS

POSITION, BOEHNER SAYS, BUT

THAT DOESN'T CHANGE THE

CONSTITUTION.

RESPONDING TO WARNINGS BY

REPUBLICANS, PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYS HIS ACTIONS DON'T

AMOUNT TO AMNESTY.

President Obama:

AMNESTY IS THE IMMIGRATION

SYSTEM WE HAVE TODAY.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO LIVE

HERE WITHOUT PAYING THEIR

TAXES OR PLAYING BY THE

RULES, WHILE POLITICIANS USE

THE ISSUE TO SCARE PEOPLE

AND WHIP UP VOTES AT

ELECTION TIME.

Reporter: STILL, SOME

CALL HIS ACTIONS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF

TEXAS HAS ALREADY PROMISED

TO CHALLENGE THE PRESIDENT

IN COURT.

AND REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS

ARE CERTAIN TO LOOK FOR WAYS

TO CHALLENGE THE PRESIDENT'S

ACTIONS AS WELL.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Gordon: WELL, YOU CAN

TALK ALL YOU WANT ABOUT HE

IS ACTING LIKE A KING AND HE

IS VIOLATING HIS

CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY TO

ENFORCE THE LAWS OF THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

BUT REALLY WHAT IS GOING ON

HERE IS HE IS A POLITICIAN.

AND HE IS PLAYING POLITICS

WITH A LARGE VOTING BLOCK,

AND HE IS LOOKING TWO YEARS

FROM NOW.

THE CYNIC IN ME SAYS, WHERE

WAS THIS ACTION TWO YEARS

AGO, WHEN HE WAS

RE-ELECTED.

WHERE WAS IT SIX YEARS AGO,

WHEN HE HAD THE MAJORITY IN

THE LEGISLATION AND THE

SENATE, AND COULD HAVE

PASSED ANY LEGISLATION HE

WANTED TO, AND DID.

I DO HOPE OUT OF THIS THERE

IS SERIOUS DISCUSSION AND

SERIOUS LEGISLATION.

BECAUSE IF YOU'RE AN ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANT, AND YOU'RE

RELYING ON THIS EXECUTIVE

ORDER, YOU'VE ONLY GOT TWO

YEARS FOR IT.

THERE IS GOING TO BE A NEW

ADMINISTRATION, AND AT WHAT

POINT IN TIME DOES THIS

AMNESTY LAPSE?

THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME KIND

OF MEANINGFUL IMMIGRATION

REFORM THAT GETS THROUGH

CONGRESS, GETS THROUGH THE

SENATE, AND THEN IS SIGNED

BY A PRESIDENT AND BECOMES

LAW.

OTHERWISE IT IS STILL GOING

TO BE A VERY MERKY ISSUE.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE

CONSERVATIVES IN WASHINGTON

ARE EXPOSING HOW SOME O OF

YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS ARE

BEING USED BY OBAMACARE.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: PRO LIFE

BELIEVERS ARE USING A NEW

WEBSITE.

AND POINTING OUT TAX DOLLARS

ARE HELPING TO PAY FOR

ABORTIONS.

EVERYONE IN ALL 50

STATES, BEING FORCED TO

SUBSIDIZE ELECTED ABORTIONS

WITH TAXPAYERS' FUNDS.

DESPITE AN APPALLING

DEGREE OF NO TRANSPARENCY,

AN EXTENSIVE AUDIT BY THE

GENERAL ACCOUNTABILITY

OFFICE FOUND IN SEPTEMBER

THAT 1,036 OBAMACARE

EXCHANGE PLANS COVERED

ELECTIVE ABORTIONS.

Efrem: AND YOU CAN FIND

A LINK TO THAT WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR RON DERMA

TELLS CBN NEWS HIS COUNTRY

WILL LAUNCH A TOUGH

COUNTER-ATTACK IN RESPONSE

TO LONE-WOLF PALESTINIAN

TERROR ATTACKS IN RECENT

WEEKS THAT HAVE KILLED 11

PEOPLE.

THE BRUTAL ATTACK AT A

JERUSALEM SYNAGOGUE RAISED

FEARS THAT ISRAELIS ARE AT

RISK-AWA RISK ANYWHERE IN

THEIR NATION.

HE SAYS ISRAEL HAS TO TAKE

ACTION.

YOU CAN IMAGINE WHAT THE

RESPONSE WOULD BE IF PEOPLE

CAME INTO A CHURCH IN

WASHINGTON, IN YOUR CAPITAL,

AND STARTED HACKING PEOPLE

WITH MEAT CLEAVERS AND

SHOOTING THEM, OBVIOUSLY

YOUR PRESIDENT WOULD TAKE A

VERY STRONG RESPONSE.

WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE

WHAT THAT IS.

BUT HE IS GOING TO DO WHAT

HE HAS TO DO TO D.V.D.

DEFEND THE ISRAELI PUBLIC.

Efrem: BACK HERE AT

HOME, AT LEAST 12 DEATHS ARE

BLAMED ON THE MASSIVE

SNOWSTORM IN BUFFALO, WITH

SNOW PILING UP TO EIGHT FEET

HIGH.

MARK MARTIN HAS THIS STORY.

Mark: BRUTAL WEATHER,

LIKE THE KIND YOU CAN SEE IN

THE MIDDLE OF WINTER KEEPS

HITTING PARTS OF THE U.S.

FROM LIGHTNING AND THUNDER

SNOW TO FEET OF SNOW PILING

UP IN AREAS LIKE MICHIGAN

ALL THE WAY TO WESTERN NEW

YORK.

SOME PEOPLE CANNOT GET INTO

THEIR HOMES.

MY WIFE HAS SEASONAL

CEREBRAL PALSY, AND I'M

TRYING TO GET INTO THE HOUSE

TO GET TO HER.

Efrem: BUILDINGS ARE

BEGINNING TO STAGGER UNDER

THE WEIGHT.

HOMEOWNERS SHOVELED THEIR

ROOFS, IN ADDITION TO THEIR

DRIVEWAYS.

I'VE GOT TO GET UP THERE

AND SHOVEL, OTHERWISE THIS

ROOF IS GOING TO COME DOWN.

Efrem: RESIDENTS OF A

NURSING HOME HAD TO BE

EVACUATED, AFTER A ROOF,

PUMMELLED BY SNOW, IS IN

DANGER OF CASING IN.

A NEARBY WAREHOUSE ALREADY

HAS COLLAPSED.

AND A PERSON IS CARRIED TO

SAFETY IN A STRETCHER.

THE GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK IS

BEGGING PEOPLE TO STAY OFF

THE ROADS.

IN THE MEANTIME, SUNDAY'S

GAME WILL NOT BE PLAYED AT

THE STADIUM OF THE BUFFALO

BILLS.

INSTEAD, IT WILL BE PLAYED

IN DETROIT.

FORECASTERS SAY TEMPERATURES

ARE EXPECTED TO WARM UP

CONSIDERABLY THIS WEEKEND.

HOWEVER, THAT MEANS FLOODING

IS POSSIBLE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AND, GORDON,

WINTER IS STILL A LITTLE BIT

AWAY.

Gordon: WELL, IT LOOKS

LIKE IT IS RIGHT HERE RIGHT

NOW IN BUFFALO.

OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THOSE

PEOPLE.

I CAN'T IMAGINE BEING

TRAPPED IN OR OUT OF YOUR

HOME AND WORRYING ABOUT IS

THE ROOF GOING TO COLLAPSE.

SO OUR PRAYERS OR WITH YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP,

FREEING INDIA'S SEX SLAVES

THROUGH FASHION.

SEE HOW TWO BRITISH

DESIGNERS ARE FIGHTING SEX

TRAFFICKING ONE CREATION AT

A TIME.

Gordon: SEX TRAFFICKING

IS A MULTI-BILLION CRIMINAL

INDUSTRY, AND THE WORLD IS

SLOWLY WAKING UP TO THIS

MODERN-DAY FORM OF SLAVERY,

AND LOOKING FOR WAYS TO

FIGHT IT.

AS CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS, A

CLOTHING COMPANY IN LONDON

IS HELPING VICTIMS OF THE

SEX INDUSTRY, AND THEY'RE

DOING IT ONE STITCH AT A

TIME.

Reporter: SONA GOTCHI

IS THE LARGEST SEX DISTRICT

IN INDIA.

EACH DAY MORE THAN 10,000

WOMEN STAND IN LINE TO SELL

THEIR BODIES.

SOME ENTER THE WORLD OF

HUMAN TRAFFICKING SO THEIR

FAMILIES CAN EAT, OR BECAUSE

POVERTY HAS LEFT THEM WITH

NO OTHER OPTION.

THESE IMAGES AND STORIES

CHANGED THE LOVES OF

VOLUNTEERS LADY NATASHA AND

LADY BRENON BACK IN 2009.

I NOTICED THESE WOMEN

WOULD COME IN THE AFTERNOON.

WE TEACH THEM HOW TO SOW

AND TEACH THEM VERY BASIC

SKILLS.

AND IT IS FROM THAT THAT WE

HAD THE IDEA TO SET UP THE

BUSINESS.

WE LOVE FASHION, WE LOVE

DRESSES, AND WE LOVE

DRESSING UP.

IT IS AMAZING TO HELP TEACH

THEM THE SKILLS THAT WILL

MAKE THEM EMPLOYABLE, OR TO

HELP THEM MAKE A SUSTAINABLE

LIVELIHOOD.

Reporter: AND THAT THEY

DID, STARTING AN ETHICAL

FASHION LABEL THAT IS MAKING

A WORLDWIDE NAME FOR ITSELF,

THANKS IN PART TO ONE MAJOR

HIGH-PROFILE CUSTOMER, KATE

MIDDLETON.

MANY COME IN LOOKING FOR AN

OUTFIT THAT WILL MAKE THEM

LOOK AND FEEL BEAUTIFUL.

THEY LEAVE WITH A PURCHASE

THAT IS MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

WHEN WE FIRST STARTED

THIS COMPANY, THE VISION WAS

TO HAVE THE WOMEN INVOLVED

IN THE WHOLE OF THE

PRODUCTION.

AS WE STARTED TO GROW, THAT

WASN'T QUITE POSSIBLE,

GIVING THEM THAT SKILL SET.

THE AVERAGE AGE OF A GIRL

TRAFFICKED IS 13, SO AS YOU

CAN IMAGINE, THERE IS A LOT

OF HEALING.

WE DECIDED TO START SMALL

AND PARTNER UP WITH

COMPANIES AND BUSINESSES ON

THE GROUND.

Reporter: THE

ORGANIZATION, KNOWN AS "FREE

SET," WORKS TO HELP INDIAN

WOMEN ESCAPE THE SEX TRADE.

THEY NOT ONLY TEACH USEFUL

SKILLS, BUT EMPOWERMENT AS

WELL.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: RUFUS AND

BRENNON PARTNER WITH "FREE

SET."

COSTUMERS CAN PURCHASE BAGS

MADE BY FORMER TRAFFICKED

VICTIMS.

AND THEY PROVIDE A TRUST WHO

PROVIDES TRAINING TO LEARN

EMBROIDERY.

EVERY SINGLE PIECE HAS

THE STORY OF A WOMEN.

Reporter: THE

EMBROIDERY WILL BE TWO BEES

IN THE SHAPE OF A

BUTTERFLY.

THE IDEA IS ONE SMALL

THING HAPPENING HAVING A

LARGE EFFECT, OR ONE SMALL

CHANGE HAVING A LARGE

EFFECT.

THAT RELATES BACK TO BULLA,

AND WHAT BULA STANDS FOR,

COMING OUT OF THE PLACE OF

DARKNESS INTO SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL.

Reporter: THE WOMEN WHO

INSPIRED THESE DRESSES

CONTINUE TO BE AT THE DESIGN

OF EVERY DRESS.

LAST WEEK'S DESIGN WAS A

JAPANESE POTTERY.

IT IS THE CONCEPT OF A

PIECE OF POTTERY BEING

BROKEN AND PUT BACK TOGETHER

BY GOLD.

SO THE IDEA IS THE PIECE IS

MORE BEAUTIFUL AFTER HAVING

BEEN BROKEN.

WE THESE BEAUTIFUL PRINTS.

Reporter: ONE DAY EACH

BULA LONDON PIECE WILL CARRY

THE TOUCH OF A WOMAN THEY'RE

WORKING TO SAVE.

UNTIL THEN, YOU CAN BE SURE

THAT EVERY PURCHASE WILL

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

IF SOMEONE BUYS, THAT IS

HELPING US AS A BRAND

GROWTH.

Reporter: IT IS A

COMPANY WITH A CAUSE.

AND THEY'RE CREATING A

BEAUTIFUL CHANGE ONE STITCH

AT A TIME.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

LONDON.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL STORY.

A WONDERFUL CONCEPT, USING

FASHION TO END THE SEX

INDUSTRY IN INDIA.

WELL, YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A

SKYDIVER TAKES A TRIP UP TO

HEAVEN.

THIS WAS A REAL PLACE.

AND I WAS ALSO TRAVELLING,

LIKE ON AN UPWARD GLIDE

PATH.

AND I SAW A WHITE PORT TELL

PORTAL IN THE DISTANCE, AND

I FELT A PEACE.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT HE

SAW WHEN HE GOT THERE, AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: AS A

PROFESSIONAL SKYDIVER,

MICKEY ROBERTSON HAD NO

FEAR, UNTIL THE DAY HIS

PLANE BEGAN PLUNGING TO THE

GROUND.

THE PARACHUTE DESIGNED TO

SAVE MICKEY'S LIFE BECAME A

DEATH TRAP WHEN IT BURST

INTO FLAMES AND SENT MICKEY

INTO A SUPERNATURAL

DESTINATION.

THE FIRST TIME YOU OPEN

YOUR PARACHUTE IT IS PRETTY

AMAZING.

IT IS SO PEACEFUL.

YOU ARE HANGING A HALF MILE

ABOVE THE EARTH.

SO IT WASN'T ABOUT THE

ADRENALIN.

IT WAS ABOUT THE PLEASURE.

IT WAS THE PLEASURE OF BEING

IN FREE FALL AND FEELING

LIKE YOU COULD FLY.

Reporter: MICKEY

ROBERTSON WAS A PROFESSIONAL

SKYDIVER.

HE LOVED FALLING FROM THE

HEAVENS AND DRIFTING SAFELY

TO EARTH.

ONE DAY AFTER TAKEOFF FROM A

PRACTICE JUMP, THE PLANE'S

ENGINE STALLED, HURTLING

MICKEY AND HIS COMPANION TO

THE GROUND.

THE ENGINE JUST QUIT.

THERE WAS NO HOPE.

WE HAD SECONDS.

Reporter: THE PLANE HIT

THE GROUND AND QUART

CARTWHEELED TO A STOP.

THE FUSELAGE WAS STICKING

OUT.

AND MY LEG WAS TRAPPED.

AND I WAS SOAKED WITH

GASOLINE FIRE.

Reporter: HIS FRIEND

FOUGHT THROUGH THE FLAMES

AND PULLED MICKEY OUT.

IN SEVERE PAIN AND LOSING

CONSCIOUSNESS, MICKEY ASKED

GOD FOR HELP.

I RELIED ON MY OWN

NATURAL ABILITY AND

STRENGTH, FOR THE FIRST TIME

I CALLED OUT TO A GOD I

DIDN'T KNOW AND NEVER

SERVED.

I SAID, GOD, PLEASE HELP

ME.

GIVE ME ANOTHER CHANCE.

Reporter: AT THE

HOSPITAL, IT WAS QUICKLY

EVIDENT TO THE DOCTORS THAT

HIS CHANCES OF SURVIVAL WERE

NOT GOOD.

THEY DIDN'T THINK I WOULD

MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT.

I WAS IN SHOCK.

I HAD HEAD TRAUMA, I HAD

SOME INTERNAL INJURIES THEY

DIDN'T REALLY KNOW ABOUT.

MY ORGANS WERE DIRECTLY

SHUTTING DOWN.

I HAD SEPSIS, WHICH IS AN

INTERNAL INFECTION.

MY BODY WAS FIGHTING A

BATTLE THAT NO WAY COULD

LIVE.

I COULD FEEL LIFE LEAKING

OUT OF ME.

AT THAT POINT, I HAD AN

EXPERIENCE THAT I HAD NO

GRID FOR THIS AT ALL.

MY INNER BEING WENT

PERPENDICULAR TO MY BODY.

I WAS IMMEDIATELY

TRANSPORTED AND I LOOKED AT

MYSELF, AND THERE WAS

NOTHING WRONG WITH ME.

THIS WAS A REAL PLACE.

AND I WAS ALSO TRAVELLING.

I HAD NO CONTROL OF WHAT WAS

GOING ON.

I WAS, LIKE, ON AN UPWARD

GLIDE PATH.

I SAW A WHITE PORTAL IN THE

DISTANCE, AND I FELT A PEACE

EMANATING FROM IT.

I WAS HEADED TOWARDS THERE.

AND THEN I FELT A PRESSURE

ON MY RIGHT SIDEMEN SIDE.

AND I LOOKED, AND I LOOKED

INTO SOMETHING I COULD ONLY

DESCRIBE AN ABYSS THAT WAS

BLACKER THAN BLACK.

THIS THING, THE MORE I

LOOKED AT IT, THE MORE IT

CLOSED.

I WAS ALMOST BY THIS WHITE

PORTAL, AND IT WAS E

ECLIPSING IT.

AND I CRIED OUT THE SAME

THING: NO, GOD, I'M SORRY.

I WANT TO LIVE.

I WANT TO BE ALIVE.

AS THOSE WORDS GUSHED OUT

DESPERATELY OUT OF MY

SPIRIT, I WAS THRUST THROUGH

THIS WHITE PORTAL, AND

INSTANTLY I WAS STANDING IN

THE PRESENCE OF ALMIGHTY

GOD, AND I KNEW I WOULD

NEVER DIE.

IT TRANSCENDED EVERYTHING I

COULD IMAGINE OR KNEW ABOUT

THE GREATEST THINGS ON

EARTH.

THE LOVE OF GOD IS SO PURE.

IT IS SO PERFECT, AND IT IS

SO INCREDIBLE.

I DIDN'T SEE ANY CREATURES

OR ANGELS OR THE PEARLIE

GATES.

I DIDN'T SEE ANY OF THAT.

BUT THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE

RADIANCE OF GOD, AND THE

UNDILUTED LOVE OF GOD WAS

BEING POURED INTO ME.

THERE WAS NOTHING NEGATIVE

ALLOWED TO BE IN THE

PRESENCE OF GOD, SO I WAS

PURE.

IT WAS SO INCREDIBLE.

THE ECSTASY AND THE JOY.

WE DON'T HAVE WORDS.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

INVENT NEW WORDS.

Reporter: DESPITE

WANTING TO STAY IN HEAVEN,

MICKEY SAYS HE WAS SENT BACK

TO HIS BODY.

MY SPIRIT CAME BACK, AND

THE PRESENCE OF GOD CAME

BACK.

AND MY PRESENCE SANK INTO MY

BODY.

AROUND THE BODY THERE WAS

ABOUT A HALF DOZEN DOCTORS

AND NURSES, AND I HAD THIS

ABILITY TO KNOW WHAT THEY

WERE EXPERIENCING.

THEY JUST SAW ME DIE AND

COME BACK TO LIFE.

THEY WERE SCARED OF WHAT

THEY SAW.

I HAD A SILLY GRIN AND I WAS

FILL OF JOY.

I WAS SO HAPPY TO BE ALIVE.

I HAD THIS LOVE, AND I

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO CALL

IT.

I LOVED EVERYBODY AND

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: MICKEY SAYS

FROM THAT DAY ON, HE BEGAN

TO SEE GOD WORKING MIRACLES

IN HIS LIFE.

DOCTORS SAID HE WOULD NOT BE

ABLE TO WALK AGAIN DUE TO

THE AND NERVE DAMAGE IN

HIS LEGS, BUT THE NERVES

REGENERATED.

AND AFTER FIVE YEARS OF

BLINDNESS IN HIS RIGHT EYE,

HE IS ABLE TO SEE AGAIN.

EVERYTHING THAT WAS LOST

HE IS RESTORING.

YOU REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR

LIFE WHEN IT IS RESTORED.

ANY MAN OF RESTORATION, YOU

REALLY NEED TO THANK GOD FOR

IT.

I NEED TO BE GRATEFUL EVERY

DAY.

Reporter: HE WROTE A

BOOK DETAILING HIS

EXPERIENCES, CALLED "FALLING

INTO HEAVEN."

HE SAYS OF ALL OF THE

MIRACLES HE HAS SEEN IN HIS

LIFE, IT IS GOD'S LOVE THAT

HAS MEAN THE MOST TO HIM.

I'M BLOWN AWAY THAT GOD

LOVES ME.

I'M BLOWN AWAY THAT GOD TOOK

A MESS AND MADE A

MASTERPIECE.

Reporter: MICKEY HAS

TRAVELLED THE WORLD

PROCLAIMING THE LOVE OF GOD

AND THE HEALING POWER OF

JESUS HE HAS EXPERIENCED

DURING HIS SECOND CHANCE OF

LIFE ON EARTH.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PATH TO

GOD.

JESUS SAID, "I AM THE WAY,

THE TRUTH, AND THE LIGHT.

NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER

BUT THROUGH ME."

THE BLIND SEE, THE DEAD ARE

RAISED.

HE BINDS UP THE

BROKENHEARTED.

IF WE DID A FORENSIC STUDY

AND CHECKED ALL OF THE

FINGERPRINTS, IT WOULD ONLY

ADD UP TO JESUS CHRIST.

HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

NOBODY ELSE COULD DO THIS

BUT JESUS CHRIST.

Gordon: NO ONE ELSE CAN

DO IT BY JESUS CHRIST.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS SAID.

HE SAID, "I'M THE WAY, THE

TRUTH, AND THE LIFE.

NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER

BUT BY ME."

NOW, HOW DO YOU GET THAT?

HOW DO YOU GET ACCESS TO THE

FATHER?

HOW DO YOU GET ACCESS TO

THAT GLORIOUS LIGHT, THAT

GLORIOUS LOVE?

WHAT MICKEY WENT THROUGH THE

BIBLE TALKS ABOUT.

THE APOSTLE JOHN SAID GOD IS

LOVE.

HE SAID GOD IS LIGHT.

IN HIM THERE IS NO

DARKNESS.

THERE IS NO DOUBT.

THERE IS NO UNBELIEF.

THERE IS NO NEGATIVITY.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WHEN

YOU'RE IN CONTACT WITH HIM.

WHAT MICKEY EXPERIENCED YOU

CAN HAVE AS WELL.

WHAT'S THE KEY?

WHAT'S THE ANSWER?

IT'S THE SAME PRAYER THAT

MICKEY PRAYED: I DON'T WANT

TO DIE.

I WANT TO LIVE.

I WANT TO KNOW YOU.

JESUS PROMISES THAT HE'LL

MANIFEST HIMSELF, HE'LL SHOW

UP FOR YOU.

HE'LL TURN THAT LIGHT ON SO

YOU UNDERSTAND.

HE'LL GIVE YOU THAT SAME

LOVE, THAT SAME ACCEPTANCE,

THAT SAME EVERYTHING.

YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL.

IF YOU JUST ASK.

IF YOU JUST SAY, JESUS, I

WANT THIS.

I WANT YOU.

I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE.

I DON'T WANT MY WAY

ANYMORE.

I WANT TO BE YO YOUR

MASTERPIECE.

THE PLAN, THE PURPOSE THAT

YOU HAVE FOR ME, THAT'S WHAT

I WANT.

AND IF YOU PRAYED THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, THE BIBLE

SAYS THAT HE'LL BE FOUND BY

YOU.

WHEN YOU SEEK HIM, HE'LL BE

FOUND BY YOU.

THAT'S WHY JESUS SAYS YOU

NEED TO ASK, YOU NEED TO

KNOCK, AND YOU NEED TO KEEP

ON ASKING AND KEEP ON

KNOCKING UNTIL YOU GET IT.

UNTIL YOU HAVE THAT

EXPERIENCE OF HIM.

AND ONCE YOU HAVE IT.

THEN ALL THINGS BECOME NEW.

THINGS CHANGE.

YOU CHANGE.

YOUR PERCEPTION CHANGES.

FROM YOUR INNERMOST BEING,

YOU SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

NOW.

AND YOU CAN HAVE IT BY JUST

PRAYING THAT SAME PRAYER.

IF YOU WANT THIS, IF YOU

WANT TO MEET GOD TODAY, IF

YOU WANT TO KNOW THAT JESUS

IS REAL, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO

IS ASK.

SO LET'S DO THAT.

DON'T TURN AWAY.

DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

BUT LET'S PRAY.

AND LET'S BELIEVE GOD, THAT

WHAT HE DID FOR MICKEY HE'LL

DO FOR YOU.

HE IS ABLE TO HEAL.

HE IS ABLE

TO RESTORE.

HE IS ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR

HEART.

HE IS ABLE TO DO ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

BUT THE GREATEST THING IS

HIS LOVE TOWARDS YOU.

HE KEEPS NO RECORD OF

WRONGS.

HE HAS GOOD THOUGHTS ABOUT

YOU.

HE HAS A PLAN AND A FUTURE

FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

HIM.

SO LET'S PRAY.

BOW YOUR HEAD AND CLOSE YOUR

EYES, AND LET'S SEE WHAT

JESUS WILL DO FOR YOU

TODAY.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME AND SAY IT OUT

LOUD.

DON'T LET THIS BE A SILENT

PRAYER.

BUT SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND I

WANT YOU IN MY LIFE, IN MY

HEART.

I WANT TO KNOW YOUR LOVE.

I WANT TO FEEL YOUR PRESENCE

NOW.

AND, JESUS, I ASK THAT YOU

FORGIVE ME.

I ASK THAT YOU CHANGE MY

HEART.

I ASK THAT YOU FILL ME WITH

YOUR LOVE.

AND I ASK THAT YOU DO ALL OF

THESE THINGS SO THAT I CAN

FOLLOW YOU ALL THE DAYS OF

MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, ANSWER IT

NOW, FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A BAPTISM

IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOUR FACE WOULD

SHINE UPON THEM.

AND THAT YOUR PEACE WOULD BE

ON THEM.

TRANSFORM THEM, FILL THEM,

FOR WE ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THERE

IS ONE MORE THING I WANT YOU

TO DO.

I WANT YOU TO GO TO THE

PHONE AND MAKE A TOLL-FREE

CALL, 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO SAY THAT

I PRAYED.

I ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO

MY HEART.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT WHEN YOU

BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART AND

CONFESS WERE YO WITH YOUR

HEART, YOU SHALL BE SAVED.

SO DO THAT NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

WHEN YOU CALL, I'VE GOT

SOMETHING FREE FOR YOU.

IT IS A C.D. TEACHING ON

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS BELIEVE?

IT IS ALL FREE.

NO FINANCIAL OBLIGATION AT

ALL.

MAKE THE CALL NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

WOMAN IS DESPERATE TO HAVE A

BABY.

I TOOK MY TEMPERATURE

EVERY DAY TO SEE WHERE MY

BODY WAS IN ITS CYCLE.

WHEN I WOULD GET THAT DIP,

IT WAS JUST LIKE I HAD

COMPLETELY FAILED.

I WANT TO BE THE ONE WHO

TAKES MY BABY HOME.

Terry: WATCH HOW THIS

WIFE BECOMES A MOTHER.

THAT'S COMING UP.

BUT FIRST, A HOLOCAUST

SURVIVOR TELLS HOW HE WAS

HIDDEN IN A BAG TO ESCAPE

THE NAZIS.

WE HAVE HIS HORROWING STORY

STILL TO COME.

I WANT TO PROVE MYSELF TO

PEOPLE SO MUCH I'M WILLING

TO GO TO THE END OF THIS.

SO I'M GOING TO START

CARRYING GUNS AND SELLING

DRUGS.

THAT'S WHEN I REALLY STARTED

SELLING DRUGS.

I'M LAYING ON THE GROUND

NOW.

COPS HAVE GUNS IN MY FACE.

I'M CAUGHT RED-HANDED.

AT THAT TIME, I DIDN'T HAVE

NOBODY ELSE BUT MY FAMILY.

THE ONLY THING THAT REALLY

MATTERED WAS SEEING MY MOM

PRAYING, SAYING, JOSHUA, GOD

IS WAKING YOU UP.

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.

I REMEMBER THAT LAST DAY

WHEN THE JUDGE LOOKED AT ME

AND SAID, I DON'T KNOW WHY

I'M DOING THIS, I DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHY I'M DOING

THIS, I SHOULDN'T BE DOING

THIS, BUT I'M GOING TO LET

YOU OFF AND GIVE YOU THREE

YEARS PROBATION.

I SAID, GOD, I SEE YOU NOW.

YOU LET ME GET TO THIS PLACE

TO WHERE I SEE YOU'RE THE

ONLY THING I NEED.

I KNOW GOD WILL BE THERE FOR

YOU BECAUSE HE WAS THERE FOR

ME.

I KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN AND

PURPOSE FOR YOU LIFE BECAUSE

HE HAS A PLAN AND PURPOSE

FOR ME.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

A SECULAR DISPLAY AT

CHRISTMAS, IT

COULD HAPPEN

IN MICHIGAN.

OFFICIALS THERE

ARE

CONSIDERING WHETHER TO

PUT A

NATIVITY SCENE ON THE STATE

CAPITAL LAWN THIS YEAR.

BUT

THE FREEDOM FOR RELIGION

FOUNDATION SAYS IF THERE

IS

A

NATIVITY SCENE, THERE

SHOULD BE A

SECULAR

COUNTER-DISPLAY AS WELL.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

HELPING FAMILIES IN KENYA

OVERCOME EXTREME POVERTY.

FAMILIES ARE LEARNING HOW TO

HARVEST DROUGHT-RESISTANT

CROPS.

THE FARMING PROGRAM TEACHES

VILLAGERS HOW TO TEND THEIR

OWN GARDENS AND GROW

NUTRITIOUS FOODS.

THEY SELL THE FOOD AT

MARKETS TO BUY CLOTHES AND

TOOLS AND OTHER

NECESSITIES.

AND THEY LEARN MANAGEMENT

AND OTHER SKILLS TO RUN

THEIR OWN BUSINESSES.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING TO OB.ORG.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

RIGHT BACK.

Gordon: EPHRAIM

BONSTEIN HAS VIVID MEMORIES

OF THE HOLOCAUST, EVEN

THOUGH HE WAS JUST A SMALL

CHILD AT THE TIME.

TODAY EPHRAIM LIVES IN

ISRAEL, WHERE HE RECEIVES

ONGOING HELP, THANKS TO

PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

BRONSTEIN WAS ONLY ONE YEAR

OLD WHEN THE HOLOCAUST

BEGAN.

HE DOESN'T REMEMBER MUCH

ABOUT IT, BUT HIS RELATIVES

TELL HIM HE IS LUCKY TO BE

ALIVE.

IN 1941, HIS FAMILY WAS

FORCED TO LIVE IN A GHETTO

IN THEIR NATIVE UKRAINE.

THEN HIS FATHER WAS SENT TO

WAR TO FIGHT FOR GERMANY,

WHILE HIS MOTHER WAS FORCED

TO DO HARD LABOR.

WHILE HIS MOM WORKED, HE WAS

KEPT SAFE BY AN 11-YEAR-OLD

GIRL.

SHE HID ME INSIDE A BAG

SO THAT THE GERMANS WOULDN'T

TAKE US WHILE OUR PARENTS

WERE AWAY.

Reporter: LIFE IN THE

GHETTO WAS HARSH.

ALL WE HAD TO EAT WAS

ROTTEN MEAT.

SOMETIMES THE GERMANS FORCED

ME TO CLEAN THE STREETS.

EVERY DAY THEY SHOT PEOPLE

WHO LIVED IN THE GHETTO.

THEY TOOK SOME AWAY TO THE

GAS CHAMBERS.

Reporter: THERE WAS

LITTLE PROTECTION FROM THE

BIDDER COLD.

LACK OF FOOD AND WARMTH MADE

EPHRAIM SICK AND HE NEVER

RECOVERED.

I HAVE HYPERTENSION AND

DIABETES AND I HAVE HEART

PROBLEMS.

Reporter: TODAY LIVING

IN ISRAEL, HIS LIFE IS STILL

DIFFICULT.

EPHRAIM LIVES IN POVERTY,

LIKE MANY HOLOCAUST

SURVIVORS.

SO CBN ISRAEL GIVES EPHRAIM

FOOD BASKETS EACH MONTH.

HE LOOKS FORWARD TO EVERY

DELIVERY BECAUSE HE NEEDS

THE FOOD AND ENJOYS THE TIME

SPENT WITH VOLUNTEERS.

I LIKE WHEN PEOPLE VISIT

FORMER GHETTO PRISONERS LIKE

ME.

WE ARE LONELY AND DON'T GET

MUCH ATTENTION.

Reporter: EPHRAIM'S

STOVE WAS BROKEN AND HE

COULDN'T A AFFORD TO FIX

IT.

SO WE TOOK HIM SHOPPING,

BOUGHT HIM A NEW STOVE, AND

DELIVERED IT TO HIS HOME.

AND WE GOT HIM A MICROWAVE,

TOO.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

WHEN A WOMAN WAKES UP AFTER

SURGERY, HER DOCTOR TELLS

HER THAT SHE HAS BREAST

CANCER.

THEN HE TELLS HER SHE'S

PREGNANT.

MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS,

REALLY, GOD, IF YOU KNEW I

HAD CANCER, WHY WOULD YOU

ALLOW ME TO GET PREGNANT.

AND SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME

JUST SAID, HE MUST HAVE AN

AWESOME PLAN IF HE WOULD

ALLOW THIS.

Terry: SEE HOW THAT

PLAN UNFOLDS.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS WHEN WE

COME

BACK.

STAY WITH US.

AT cbn.com, WE'RE

TAKING WHAT JESUS SAID

SERIOUSLY.

WE'RE HERE TO HELP YOU

DISCOVER LIFE.

LIFE, LIVE IT FULLY.

cbn.com.

Terry: MELANIE DILLARD

FOUND OUT SHE HAD BREAST

CANCER WHEN HE FOUND OUT SHE

WAS PREGNANT.

AND NOW ANOTHER CHILD THEY

LONGED FOR WAS IN JEOPARDY,

JUST LIKE MELANIE HERSELF.

ROB AND I WERE IN OUR

EARLY 20s WHEN WE

DISCOVERED WE WERE

PREGNANT.

WE WERE BOTH SHOCKED AND

AFRAID.

YOU AUTOMATICALLY START

THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE,

WHAT DOES IT HOLD FOR THE

BOTH OF US.

EVEN THOUGH IT WASN'T

SOMETHING WE PLANNED, I WAS

EXCITED.

24 WEEKS AND MELANIE'S

WATER BROKE.

WE RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL

AND THEY IMMEDIATELY STARTED

INJECTING ME IN BOTH ARMS

EVERY 30 MINUTES, TRYING TO

STOP THE LABOR.

THAT BABY WAS COMING, AND

THERE WASN'T ANYTHING WE

COULD DO ABOUT IT.

I GAVE BIRTH TO A VERY

TINY BABY GIRL THAT NIGHT.

ONE POUND, NINE OUNCES.

MEGAN ALESE.

YOU WANTED TO SCOOP HER

UP AND HOLD HER, BUT THERE

WAS NO WAY THAT WAS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

I KNEW IN MY HEART THE

LORD WAS GOING TO HEAL HER

AND EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO

BE FINE.

THEN WE GOT THAT PHONE

CALL.

SHE DEVELOPED AN

INFECTION.

SHE WAS GREY AND VERY

FRAIL.

I CRIED OUT TO THE LORD, AND

I SAID, YOU CAN HEAL HER.

I KNOW YOU CAN HEAL HER.

I WATCHED THEM REMOVE ALL OF

THE TUBES AND PATCHES AND

EVERYTHING THAT COVERED HER

BODY.

AND THEY WRAPPED HER IN A

BLANKET AND THEY PLACED HER

IN MY ARMS.

AND THAT WAS THE LAST TIME I

WOULD HOLD MY BABY.

HOW ARE WE GOING TO KEEP

IT ALL TOGETHER.

HOW WAS I GOING TO CONSULT

HER.

WE WEREN'T PREPARED.

I JUST THOUGHT IF I COULD

GET PREGNANT AGAIN, THAT

WOULD FILL THAT VOID.

I HAD GOTTEN PREGNANT SO

EASILY THE FIRST TIME, SO I

THOUGHT I WOULD GET PREGNANT

THE FIRST OR SECOND TRY.

BUT SINCE I WAS GRIEVING SO

DEEPLY, THE DOCTORS SAID MY

BODY HAD ACTUALLY SHUT DOWN

AND THAT I WASN'T

OVULATING.

WE TRIED PRETTY MUCH

EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN.

IF SOMEBODY HAD A

RECOMMENDATION, HAD AN IDEA,

WE DID ANYTHING WE COULD.

ROB WOULD GIVE ME INJECTIONS

IN MY STOMACH OR MY HIPS

EVERY MONTH.

I TOOK MY TEMPERATURE EVERY

DAY TO SEE WHERE MY BODY WAS

IN ITS CYCLE.

WHEN I WOULD GET THAT DIP,

IT WAS JUST LIKE I HAD

COMPLETELY FAILED.

ONCE AGAIN, I WASN'T

PREGNANT.

I WATCHED SO MANY OF MY

FRIENDS HAVE THEIR SECOND

AND THEIR THIRD CHILD WHILE

I WAITED.

WHY NOT US?

WE WANT A CHILD JUST AS BAD

AS THEY DO.

WE PROMISE WE'RE GOING TO BE

GOOD PARENTS.

MY MOM USED TO SAY,

MELANIE, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

ABLE TO HELP SOMEBODY ELSE

ONE DAY.

AND I WOULD CRY AND I WOULD

SAY, I DON'T CARE.

I DON'T WANT TO BE THAT

PERSON.

I WANT TO BE THE ONE WHO

TAKES MY BABY HOME.

AND THEN I MET MY NIECE ON

FEBRUARY 18, 1994.

IT WAS REALLY HARD TO LOOK

AT HER, BUT SHE WAS AN

ANGEL.

I TOLD THE LORD, I WANT TO

PRAISE YOU EVEN WHEN MY

CIRCUMSTANCES DON'T.

A YEAR LATER, WE FOUND OUT

WE WERE EXPECTING.

I THINK I WAS PROBABLY THE

HAPPIEST PREGNANT WOMAN

WALKING.

WHEN THEY LAID HIM IN MY

ARMS, IT WAS ABSOLUTELY LOVE

AT FIRST SIGHT.

HE LOOKS JUST LIKE ME.

ROB AND I WERE BOTH

OVERJOYED TO BE PARENTS.

BUT I STILL WAS NOT READY TO

LET GO OF THAT DREAM OF

HAVING A LITTLE GIRL.

WE TRIED FOR SEVERAL YEARS

AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY

LUCK.

I STARTED TO WONDER, WHAT IF

I WAS TO GET PREGNANT, WHAT

IF SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN TO

ME?úe

AND I BEGAN TO PRAY, LORD, I

TRUST YOU.

IF I NEVER GET PREGNANT

AGAIN, I TRUST THAT YOU KNOW

SOMETHING I DON'T.

WE JUST COMPLETELY PUT IT IN

THE LORD'S HANDS.

AND THEN IN JANUARY OF 2001

ROB FOUND A LUMP IN MY LEFT

BREAST.

WE SCHEDULED SURGERY FOR

JANUARY 22nd, AND WHEN I

CAME TO, MY HUSBAND AND THE

SURGEON WERE STANDING

THERE.

AND WE HAD TO TELL HER

SHE HAD BREAST CANCER AND

SHE WAS PREGNANT.

MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS,

REALLY, GOD?

IF YOU KNEW I HAD CANCER,

WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW ME TO

GET PREGNANT?

AND SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME

JUST SAID, HE MUST HAVE AN

AWESOME PLAN IF HE WOULD

ALLOW THIS.

WHAT IF I GET IN HIS WAY?

WHAT IF I DON'T TRUST HIM

ENOUGH TO SEE IT THROUGH?

I HAD A MASTECTOMY AND

STARTED TAKING TREATMENTS.

SHE IS FEELING HORRIBLE,

AND I HAVE MY SON, AND I

HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO HIM WHAT

HIS MOM WAS GOING THROUGH.

THE YEAR THAT I HAD

CANCER WAS ONE OF THE MOST

PEACEFUL TIMES OF MY LIFE.

IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE THAT.

I WAS BALD AND PREGNANT AND

HAD ONE BREAST.

BUT ONCE WE SURRENDERED

EVERYTHING TO THE LORD, IT

WAS AMAZING TO WATCH HIM

WORK.

THE PREGNANCY CONTINUED

AND THE BABY WAS A LITTLE

SMALL.

WE WERE TOLD THAT

PREMATURE BIRTH WAS NORMAL

WITH CHEMOTHERAPY.

SEPTEMBER 20th WAS SO

PEACEFUL AND FUN, IF LABOR

CAN BE FUN.

SHE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.

MY WIFE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.

TO FINALLY BE HOLDING MY

DAUGHTER IN MY ARMS, IT WAS

LIKE GOD WAS ANSWERING AN

11-YEAR-OLD PRAYER.

THE DOCTORS SAY THAT HAD I

GOTTEN PREGNANT BEFORE I WAS

DIAGNOSED, THEY

PROBABLY

WOULDN'T HAVE FOUND THE

LUMP.

I THINK

THAT

IS SO

GOD-ORCHESTRATED.

ROMANS 8: 28 TELLS US "IN

ALL THINGS HE WILL WORK FOR

GOOD."

WHEN I WAS WALKING THROUGH

ALL OF THAT, I COULD NOT SEE

ANY GOOD IN THE SUFFERING

THAT GOD WAS ALLOWING IN MY

LIFE.

I WAS SO HURT AND I WAS SO

ANGRY WITH THE LORD.

IT WAS MORE IMPORTANT FOR ME

TO BE MISERABLE THAN IT WAS

FOR ME TO HONOR GOD.

NOW WHEN I THINK THE

SCRIPTURE, ROMANS 8: 28, I

LOOK AT

IT COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT.

I CAN SEE NOW THAT GOD TAKES

THE HURTS AND

DISAPPOINTMENTS AND ALL OF

OUR PAIN, AND EVEN OUR SINS,

AND HE TURNS IT INTO

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.

Terry: HE HAS AN

AMAZING PLAN FOR YOU, TOO.

I KNOW THERE ARE MANY OF YOU

WHO, EVERY DAY, WAIT FOR

TIME OF PRAYER ON THIS

PROGRAM.

AND WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOUR

FAITH.

IF THAT DIDN'T ENCOURAGE YOU

ENOUGH, WATCHING THAT

AMAZING STORY, HERE IS

ANOTHER STORY I WOULD LIKE

TO SHARE WITH YOU.

ROSANNA WAS DIAGNOSED WITH

C.O.P.D., AND DOCTORS

PRESCRIBED MEDICATION, BUT

NOTHING REALLY WORKED.

SHE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO

DIE AND CONSIDERED GOING TO

THE EMERGENCY ROOM.

INSTEAD, SHE TURNED ON "THE

700 CLUB," AND HEARD YOU

SAY, "THERE IS SOMEBODY,

YOU'VE GOT BURNING IN YOUR

LUNGS.

IT IS A SEVERE ASTHMA

CONDITION, AND THERE IS

CONSTRICTED BREATHING ALMOST

ON A CONTINUAL BASIS.

GOD IS RESTORING YOU NOW.

TAKE IN A DEEP BREATH.

REALIZE YOUR FREE.

IT IS NEVER GOING TO COME

BACK.

YOU'RE HEALED NOW."

SHE HAS BEEN ABLE TO BREATHE

SINCE WITH NO INHALER.

Gordon: THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

DOCTORS WILL TELL YOU

C.O.P.D. CAN'T BE CURED,

THERE IS NOTHING MEDICALLY

THEY CAN DO.

BUT WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

HERE IS WILLIAM FROM WEST

COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA.

HE HAD A RASH ON HIS FEET.

IT LOOKED LIKE THEY HAD BEEN

BURNED.

THEN THE PROBLEM SPREAD TO

HIS ARMS.

HE SAW A DERMATOLOGIST, BUT

THE DOCTOR COULDN'T EXPLAIN

WHAT WAS CAUSING THE

CONDITION.

THE RASH CONTINUED FOR

SEVERAL MONTHS WITHOUT

LET-UP.

THEN HE WAS WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

HE HEARD TERRY GIVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE: "YOU HAVE A

BURNING SKIN CONDITION.

I DON'T THINK IT IS FROM A

BURN.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT CAUSES

YOUR SKIN TO FEEL LIKE IT IS

BURNING.

GOD IS HEALING YOUR TISSUE.

IT'S ALL BEING HEALED AND

MADE WHOLE."

WILLIAM CLAIMED THE WORD,

AND WHEN HE WOKE THE NEXT

MORNING, THE RASH WAS

TOTALLY GONE.

THAT IS A AMAZING.

GOD WANTS TO WORK MIRACLES.

NOW, CONSIDER THAT.

AND CONSIDER WHAT THAT

MEANS.

THAT MEANS THAT IF THERE

AREN'T ANY STRUGGLES, THEN

THERE AREN'T ANY VICTORIES.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT HIS GLORY

AND THE MIRACLES, THAT MEANS

THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING

WRONG.

BUT HE IS ALL ABOUT FIXING

THE WORLD.

HE IS ALL ABOUT THAT.

THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS TO DO.

NOW LOOK BACK IN TIME, GO

BACK ALL THE WAY TO THE

GARDEN OF EDEN.

WHAT WAS GOD'S PLAN?

GOD'S PLAN WAS FOR YOU AND

ME TO LIVE IN A GARDEN.

HE'D COME DOWN IN THE COOL

OF THE EVENING AND TALK WITH

US.

HE DIDN'T INTEND FOR THERE

TO BE ANY TEARS.

HE DIDN'T INTEND FOR ANY OF

THAT.

WE'RE THE ONES THAT MESSED

IT UP.

WE'RE THE ONES THAT FELL

FROM HIS GRACE, HIS GLORY.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS GOD

HASN'T GIVEN UP ON THAT

DREAM.

HE STILL WANTS TO FIX

THINGS.

HE IS ALL ABOUT

RESTORATION.

HE WANTS TO RESTORE US.

HE WANTS US TO BE WITH HIM

IN HEAVEN.

NOW, START THINKING ABOUT

HEAVEN.

WHAT'S THAT GOING TO BE

LIKE?

ARE THERE GOING TO BE ANY

TEARS?

ANYBODY GOING TO BE LONELY?

ANYBODY GOING TO BE NEEDY?

IS THERE ANY NEED FOR

HEALING?

NO.

SO WHEN WE LOOK AT HEAVEN,

WE LOOK AT GOD'S WILL.

THAT'S WHERE HIS WILL IS

BEING DONE.

AND WE'RE AUTHORIZED TO PRAY

THAT HIS WILL WOULD BE DONE

ON EARTH AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

SO OFTEN WE GET TRAPPED IN

THE THEOLOGY OF WHAT'S GOING

WRONG.

AND THIS HAPPENED IN THE

BIBLE AS WELL, WHERE THE

DISCIPLES BROUGHT A MAN BORN

BLIND TO JESUS.

AND THEY HAD A THEOLOGICAL

QUESTION.

IF THIS BLINDNESS IS AS A

RESULT OF SIN, WHO SINNED?

WAS IT HIM?

HE WAS BORN BLIND.

WAS THERE SOME SIN HE WAS

GOING TO DO THAT WAS SO

HORRIBLE HE NEEDED TO BE

BORN BLIND?

OR WAS IT THE SIN OF HIS

PARENTS AND THEY CAUSED

THIS?

IF THAT'S IT, THEN WHERE IS

THE JUSTICE IN THAT BECAUSE

HE IS PAYING FOR IT.

I LOVE THE RESPONSE OF

JESUS.

HE SAID, NEITHER.

THIS HAPPENED SO THE GLORY

OF GOD WILL BE REVEALED, AND

HE HEALED THE BLINDNESS.

SO START THINKING THIS

HAPPENED SO THE GLORY OF THE

LORD WILL BE REVEALED.

THIS HAPPENED SO THAT THE

WILL OF GOD, THE WILL OF HIM

IN HEAVEN, WOULD COME DOWN

ON EARTH AND BE IN MY BODY

RIGHT NOW.

NOW, YOU'RE AUTHORIZED TO

PRAY THAT.

START BELIEVING IT.

START CONFESSING IT.

TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

PRAY.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY THAT

GOD'S WILL WILL BE DONE IN

YOUR BODY RIGHT NOW.

LET'S GET RID OF ALL

THEOLOGICAL DISCUSSION.

LET'S GET RID OF ALL DOUBT

AND UNBELIEF AND JUST FOCUS

ON HIM, FOCUS ON HEAVEN, AND

ASK FOR HIS WILL TO BE DONE

NOW.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE LIFT UP THE NEEDS

OF THE AUDIENCE.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE IN PAIN,

PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING WITH

DISEASE, LORD WE JUST

DECLARE OVER THEM THIS IS

NOT YOUR WILL.

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT

YOU WANT FOR THEM.

THAT YOUR WILL IN HEAVEN IS

FOR US TO BE DISEASE-FREE,

FOR US TO HAVE PROSPERITY,

FOR US TO ENJOY LIFE THAT

YOU'VE GIVEN US, FOR US TO

ENJOY EVERY BREATH.

THAT'S YOUR WILL.

SO WITH THE AUTHORITY GIVEN

TO US AS BELIEVERS, YOU HAVE

GIVEN US THE POWER TO BE

YOUR CHILDREN.

WE COME TO YOU, OUR FATHER,

AND WE DECLARE THAT YOU'RE

WILL WOULD BE DONE IN THESE

BODIES NOW.

THAT YOUR WILL WOULD COME TO

EARTH AND BE DONE ON EARTH

AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

HEAL THEM NOW, RESTORE

THEM.

LET EVERY FIBER OF THEIR

BEING RESONATE WITH YOUR

WILL, AND LET EVERYTHING

COME INTO COMPLIANCE WITH

YOUR WILL.

BE HEALTHY.

BE RESTORED.

AND BE WHOLE NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A

MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, AND

LITERALLY YOU'RE WASTING

AWAY.

GOD IS RESTORING EVERY

MUSCLE FIBER IN YOUR BODY.

HE IS RESTORING EVERY

NERVE.

HE IS MAKING YOU WHOLE IN

JESUS' NAME.

JUST RECEIVE IT NOW.

BELIEVE IT IN JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU HAVE THESE LITTLE,

LIKE, TUMORS.

THEY'RE NOT SMALL LUMPS.

THEY'RE LIKE THE SIZE OF A

LARGE GRAPE, BUT THEY'RE

EVERYWHERE.

UNDER YOUR ARMS AND ON YOUR

NECK.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU.

WHAT MEDICINE HAS NOT BEEN

ABLE TO DO FOR YOU, THOSE

ARE JUST GOING TO BEGIN TO

MELT AWAY AS GOD RESTORES

YOUR HEALTH TO YOU.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE AN ISSUE WITH YOUR

BACK.

IT DOESN'T ALLOW YOU TO

ACTUALLY STAND UP STRAIGHT.

A LOT OF PAIN IN THE LOWER

BACK.

LIFT UP NOW, AND GOD IS

SETTING YOU FREE FROM THAT.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH AN INFECTION IN

THE FLUID OF THE MEMBRANE OF

YOUR BRAIN, AND IT'S

ORIGINATED IN YOUR SPINAL

CORD AND IT IS NOW IN YOUR

BRAIN.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

HE IS SETTING YOU FREE FROM

THAT.

HE IS RESTORING YOU,

COMPLETELY RESTORING YOU IN

JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE WITH A

NECK INJURY CAUSED BY A

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT.

IT IS ON YOUR RIGHT SIDE.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR YOU

TO MOVE.

YOU LIVE IN CONSTANT PAIN.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

HE IS RESTORING THE

VERTEBRAE IN YOUR NECK.

WHAT DOCTORS SAY WILL NEVER

HAPPEN IS HAPPENING FOR YOU

NOW.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE

TO TURN YOUR NECK, HAVE

COMPLETE MOBILITY IN IT.

NOTHING EVER LIKE THIS HAS

EVER HAPPENED TO YOU.

GOD IS HEALING YOU NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

SO GIVE US A CALL,

1-800-759-0700.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JEREMIAH: "HEAL

ME, O LORD, AND I SHALL BE

HEALED.

SAVE ME, AND I SHALL BE

SAVED.

FOR YOU ARE MY PRAISE."
