THE WAR THAT CHANGED THE

WORLD.

WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE

HEROS THAT WON THE BATTLE.

TROOPS WAITED FOR THOSE

SOUNDS.

Wendy: AND THEN A RUGBY

STAR WHO PUNISHED HIS

OPPONENTS ON AND OFF THE

FIELD.

I JUST UNLEASHED IT.

I ALMOST KILLED THIS GUY.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

PROTESTORS TAKING IT TO THE

STREETS IN NEW YORK LAST

NIGHT, SHUTTING DOWN TRAFFIC

THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

AFTER THE SHOCKING DECISION

BY A GRAND JURY NOT TO

INDICT A POLICE OFFICER FOR

A CHOKEHOLD DEATH OF A BLACK

MAN.

Wendy: THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT HAS DECIDED TO

GET INVOLVED AS WELL BY

STARTING ITS OWN

INVESTIGATION INTO THE

INCIDENT.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US THE

STORY.

WHO GIVES ANYBODY THE

RIGHT TO TELL PEOPLE THAT.

WHEN THE PEOPLE ARE

SCARED OF THE PEOPLE THAT

ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT

THEM, THEN YOU KNOW

SOMETHING IS WRONG.

Reporter: OUTRAGE AND

CONDEMNATION AGAINST THE

GRAND JURY'S DECISION NOT TO

CHARGE A WHITE NEW YORK CITY

POLICE OFFICER OVER THE

DEATH OF ERIC GARNER, AN

AFRICAN-AMERICAN MAN.

IT HAS COME TO THE POINT

WHERE IT IS THE LAST STRAW.

I FEEL LIKE SO MANY OF US

CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

Reporter: THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT IS NOW GETTING

INVOLVED IN THE CASE.

I'M HERE TO ANNOUNCE THAT

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL

PROCEED WITH A FEDERAL CIVIL

RIGHTS INVESTIGATION INTO

MR. GARNER'S DEATH.

Reporter: ON

JULY 17th, OFFICER DANIEL

PANTELAO WAS SEEN USING A

CHOKEHOLD ON A MAN WHO WAS

SELLING CIGARETTES ON THE

SIDEWALK.

HE WAS WRESTLED TO THE

GROUND AND PLACED IN

HANDCUFFS.

BUT THE VIDEO SHOWED GARNER

REPEATEDLY GASPING, I CAN'T

BREATHE.

AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN FEMALE

SERGEANT DID NOTHING TO STOP

HIM FROM CHOKING GARNER.

HIS DEATH WAS RULED A

HOMICIDE, CAUSED BY

COMPRESSION OF HIS THROAT,

THE CHOKEHOLD, AND HIS

CHEST.

BUT THE MEDICAL EXAMINER

CITED OTHER CONTRIBUTING

FACTORS, LIKE CHRONIC ASTHMA

AND OBESITY.

THE GRAND JURY'S DECISION

NOT TO INDICT THE OFFICER IS

DRAWING CRITICISM FROM BOTH

SIDES OF THE POLITICAL

SPECTRUM.

KEN WHITE SAID, I DON'T LIKE

ERIC HOLDER, AND IN GENERAL

DON'T APPROVE OF FEDS

DOUBLING UP, BUT THE ERIC

GARNER CASE MERITS IT.

COLONIST CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER

SAID, I THINK ANYONE WHO

LOOKS AT THE VIDEO WOULD

THINK THIS IS A WRONG

JUDGMENT.

BUT GARNER'S WIDOW SAID THE

TIME FOR REMORSE WOULD HAVE

BEEN WHEN MY HUSBAND WAS

YELLING TO BREATHE.

THE PROTEST SET OFF OTHER

WAVES OF PROTEST IN OTHER

CITIES OVERNIGHT.

BUT UNLIKE IN FERGUSON, THE

DEMONSTRATIONS IN NEW YORK

WERE LARGELY PEACEFUL.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

A TALE OF TWO CITIES.

IN FERGUSON, THE MAN

INVOLVED IN THAT ALTERCATION

HAD ROBBED A CONVENIENCE

STORE.

HE WAS A CRIMINAL.

HE ATTACKED A POLICE

OFFICER.

HE TRIED TO TAKE THE POLICE

OFFICER'S WEAPON.

THE STRUGGLE TOOK PLACE IN

THE POLICE OFFICER'S CAR.

IT WASN'T THIS BUSINESS

ABOUT BEING SHOT IN THE

BACK.

AND IT WASN'T RAISING YOUR

HANDS AND SAYING, HANDS UP,

DON'T SHOOT.

THE POLICE OFFICER WAS IN

DANGER OF HIS LIFE.

AND ALTHOUGH WE DON'T LIKE

TO SEE ANYBODY KILLED, HE

WAS JUSTIFIED, AND THE GRAND

JURY WAS JUSTIFIED, IN WHAT

IT SAID.

THAT WAS FERGUSON, AND YET

FERGUSON WAS TORN APART BY

RIOTING.

THE STORES MAY NEVER GET

BACK.

JOBS MAY NEVER COME BACK.

AND THAT TOWN MAY NEVER

RECOVER.

NOW, IN NEW YORK, ALL HE DID

WAS SELL CIGARETTES ON THE

STREET.

HE DIDN'T ROB ANYBODY OR

ATTACK ANYBODY.

SO A GANG OF POLICE

OFFICERS, THEY'RE ON VIDEO,

A WHOLE CROWD OF HIM,

GRABBED HIM TO TRY TO GET

HANDCUFFS ON HIM.

AND ONE OF THEM PUT A

CHOKEHOLD ON THE MAN'S

THROAT, CUT OFF HIS WIND,

AND KILLED HIM.

NOW, IN THAT CASE IT WAS

POLICE BRUTALITY.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

AND YET IN THAT CASE, AGAIN,

THE GRAND JURY SAID, WE

CAN'T INDICT HIM.

APPARENTLY THERE WAS AN

AFRICAN-AMERICAN SUPERVISOR,

A POLICE SERGEANT, WHO DID

NOT STOP THAT HORRIBLE

INCIDENT.

NOW, DO YOU DESERVE TO DIE

BECAUSE YOU SELL CIGARETTES

ON THE STREET?

YOU PROBABLY DON'T DESERVE

TO DIE IF YOU ROB A

CONVENIENCE STORE.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, ATTACKING

A POLICE OFFICER IS ONE

THING.

NOT WANTING TO GET YOURSELF

PUT IN HANDCUFFS IS A

DIFFERENT THING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I DO

THINK WE HAVE GOT TO SPEAK

OUT ABOUT POLICE BRUTALITY.

IT SHOULDN'T BE THERE.

I'VE SEEN IT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I WAS

PRAYING WITH A GROUP OF

BLACK TEENAGERS YEARS AND

YEARS AGO AND WAS CHARGED BY

A POLICE DOG.

I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE

ON THE OTHER SIDE, THE

RECEIVING END OF WHAT

AMOUNTED TO RACIAL

PROFILING.

IT ISN'T PLEASANT.

AND SO I UNDERSTAND.

BUT IN THAT FERGUSON CASE,

THAT POLICE OFFICER HAS BEEN

PILLARED, AND THE BLACK

PEOPLE HAVE MADE A TERRIBLE

MISTAKE.

IN NEW YORK, BECAUSE THERE

ARE SO MANY POLICE AND THERE

IS SO MUCH TRAFFIC AROUND,

THE DEMONSTRATORS COULDN'T

GET GOING.

BUT LET'S GET IT STRAIGHT.

IN ONE CASE, BRUTALITY.

IN THE OTHER, JUSTIFIABLE

HOMICIDE.

IN OTHER NEWS, TEXAS AND 16

OTHER STATES ARE GOING TO

COURT TO CHALLENGE PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE ORDER ON

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: PAT, TEXAS

ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND

GOVERNOR-ELECT GREG ABBOTT

SAYS THE PRESIDENT IS

ABDICATING HIS

RESPONSIBILITY TO FAITHFULLY

ENFORCE THE LAW ENACTED BY

CONGRESS, TRYING TO REWRITE

THE LAW ON HIS OWN.

TEXAS STATE LEADERS SAY THE

PRESIDENT'S ACTION COULD

LEAD TO A MASS ARRIVAL OF

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS INTO THE

NIENDZ.

UNITED STATES.

RICK PERRY SAYS A FLOOD LAST

YEAR LEFT BORDER PATROL

AGENTS UNPREPARED.

MANY ANALYSTS ARE

ENCOURAGING CONGRESSIONAL

REPUBLICANS NOT TO

OVERREACT, FOR EXAMPLE, BY

SHUTTING DOWN THE

GOVERNMENT.

WHAT SHOULD AMERICA'S ROLE

BE IN AMERICA?

THAT WAS THE TOPIC OF DEBATE

AND DISCUSSION AT A FORUM

HERE IN WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AT A

WASHINGTON EVENT MADE TO

EXAMINE WHAT AMERICAN

FOREIGN POLICY SHOULD LOOK

LIKE, TED CRUZ SAID IT

SHOULDN'T LOOK LIKE TODAY'S,

WITH AMERICA NO LONGER THE

LEADER OF THE WORLD.

INTO THE NATIONS, LIKE

RUSSIA AND CHINA AND IRAN,

AND IT HAS NOT MADE THE

WORLD A SAFER PLACE.

Reporter: CRUZ EVEN

JOKED ABOUT PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S LACK OF LEADING ON

THE WORLD STAGE.

JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO,

JIMMY CARTER CRITICIZED THIS

PRESIDENT FOR BEING WEAK ON

FOREIGN POLICY.

HOLY COW!

Reporter: ANOTHER

REPUBLICAN LAWMAKER LAID OUT

THE STARK CO CONTRASTS AND

VISIONS FOR AMERICAN

ACTION.

ON THE ONE HAND, THERE IS

THE VIEW WE ONLY ACT IF IT

IS IN OUR CORE INTEREST.

OTHERWISE, NOWHERE ELSE

REALLY.

AND, THEN, OF COURSE YOU

HAVE THE BELIEF FOR WHAT I

AM, WHICH IS AN ENGAGED

AMERICA IS GOOD FOR THE

WHOLE WORLD.

Reporter: A COUPLE OF

PANELISTS URGED CAUTION.

LET'S NOT DOUBLE DOWN ON

SOME OF THE FAILURES OF OUR

PAST.

BEFORE WE JUMP INTO

SOMETHING, LET'S TRY TO

REMEMBER SOME OF THE LESSONS

OF THE LAST -- YOU KNOW,

SINCE THE END OF THE COLD

WAR.

Reporter: THERE IS TALK

THAT AMERICA OFTEN TAKES

ACTIONS WITHOUT CONSIDERING

WHAT THE REACTIONS MIGHT

BE.

JAMES, FROM THE HERITAGE

FOUNDATION, BROUGHT UP THE

EVIL ACTS OF ISIS.

I LOOK AT BEHEADING AS

REACTION TO THE DRONE

STRIKES.

WE SAY WE CAN REACH OUT AND

TOUCH SOMEBODY.

AND THEY SAY, LOOK AT THIS,

WE CAN REACH OUT AND TOUCH

PEOPLE, TOO.

Reporter: AS MUCH AS

WAR WEARY AMERICANS MAY NOT

WANT BOOTS ON THE GROUND, IT

MAY BE ABSOLUTELY

NECESSARY.

IT IS THE JOB OF OUR

GOVERNMENT TO HUNT DOWN

ENEMIES AND KILL THEM BEFORE

THEY KILL US.

I THINK WE HAVE TO ENDURE

A FEW WEEKS OF SUSTAINED

RAIDS WITH IRAQI SPECIAL

FORCES ONCE THE

COUNTER-ACTION BEGINS.

Reporter: AMERICA MUST

ENGAGE BECAUSE THERE IS NO

ALTERNATIVE.

THESE PROBLEMS ARE IN

UNSOLVEABLE WITHOUT AMERICAN

LEADERSHIP.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

John: A YEAR AFTER

TYPHOON HAIYAN HIT THE

PHILIPPINES, THERE IS

ANOTHER ONE ON THE WAY.

IT ISN'T EXPECTED TO BE AS

DEVASTATING AS LAST YEAR'S

STORM.

TYPHOON HAIYAN CLAIMED 6300

LIVES AND COST ABOUT

$12 BILLION IN DAMAGES.

CBN IS STILL ON THE GROUND

AFTER THE TYPHOON.

THEIR LATEST PROJECT,

HELPING FAMILIES EARN A

LIVELIHOOD.

George: NIMFA KNOWS HOW

FORTUNATE SHE IS TO BE ALIVE

TODAY.

NOTHING WAS LEFT OF OUR

POSSESSIONS.

OUR HOUSE WAS DESTROYED.

ALL OF OUR BELONGINGS,

GONE.

George: A YEAR AGO, THE

WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL STORM

TO EVER HIT LAND SLAMMED

INTO THE PHILIPPINES,

KILLING THOUSANDS.

I TOLD MY SONS, WE WILL

OVERCOME THIS ADVERSE

SATELLITE.

ADVERSITY.

WE WERE GIVEN A SECOND

CHANCE TO LIVE.

George: IN A SMALL

VILLAGE, NOT TOO FAR FROM

HER DESTROYED COMMUNITY, SHE

AND 60 OTHER FILIPINO

FAMILIES ARE PUTTING THAT

SPIRIT TO WORK AT A UNIQUE

CBN DISASTER RELIEF ORGANIC

FARM.

WE LEARN ABOUT HARD WORK

AND THE TECHNIQUES OF

ORGANIC FARMING.

AND, OF COURSE, WHEN YOU

PLANT, YOU WILL HARVEST.

THAT IS WHY I'M SO HAPPY TO

BE PART OF THIS PROJECT.

George: THE FARM IS THE

FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THIS

REGION.

WE PLANT TOMATOES,

CHILIS, CORN, AND WE USE NO

CHEMICALS.

WE TEACH THE PEOPLE TO EAT

WHAT IS GOOD FOR THEIR

BODY.

George: THE GOAL IS TO

GIVE FAMILIES A SUSTAINABLE

LIVELIHOOD AND BUILD

SELF-CONFIDENCE.

YOU ARE TEACHING AND

GIVING THEM AGRICULTURAL

TRAINING SO THEY WILL LEARN

HOW TO EARN A LIVING.

AND NOW THAT THEY HAVE

HARVESTED, THEY ARE HAPPY.

George: AS A SINGLE

MOTHER OF SIX, BABALA WAS

STRUGGLING TO PUT FOOD ON

THE TABLE BEFORE THE TYPHOON

HIT.

I USED TO SELL FOOD THAT

I COOKED IN THE MARKET, BUT

I WAS NOT EARNING THAT MUCH

MONEY.

George: BUT NOW TRIPS

TO THE MARKET HAVE TAKEN ON

NEW SIGNIFICANCE.

I CAN'T WAIT TO BRING THE

VEGETABLES TO THE MARKET.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CBN.

BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP, WE ARE

ABLE TO STAND AGAIN.

IN TIME, I KNOW THAT OUR

FARM WILL BECOME BIGGER AND

WE WILL EARN MORE.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING US

HOPE.

George: AND JUDGING

FROM THE HUGE SUCCESS OF

THIS PROJECT, CBN DISASTER

RELIEF IS PLANNING TO START

A PIGERY, POULTRY, AND OTHER

FARMS.

WE NEED TO GIVE

THEMSELVES MEANS OF

LIVELIHOOD.

AND THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING

WITH THIS FARM.

WE HAD THEM GET UP OFF THEIR

FEET, AND HELP THEM BUILD

BACK BETTER.

George: GEORGE THOMAS,

THE PHILIPPINES.

John: PAT, I LOVE WHAT

HE SAID, BUILDING LIVES

BETTER THAN WHAT THEY WERE

BEFORE.

Pat: YOU KNOW THAT OLD

SAYING, YOU GIVE A MAN A

FISH, AND YOU FEED HIM ONE

DAY.

YOU TEACH HIM HOW TO FISH,

AND YOU FEED HIM FOR A

LIFETIME.

I THINK WHAT WE'RE DOING IS

TEACHING HE'S PEOPLE HOW TO

BE FED FOR A LIFETIME.

THE PHILIPPINES IS VERY WARM

AND THE CLIMATE IS IDEAL FOR

GROWING ALL SORTS OF

THINGS.

AND IF THEY HAVE THE PROPER

TOOLS AND THE UNDERSTANDING

OF WHAT TO DO, THEY CAN BE

CERTAINLY VERY MUCH

SELF-SUFFICIENT.

THERE DOESN'T NEED TO BE

POVERTY THERE BECAUSE THERE

IS ENOUGH TO FEED THE WHOLE

POPULATION IF THEY KNOW HOW

TO GROW THE FOOD.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP

SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN THIS

EMERGENCY, YOU CAN CALL IN,

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO CBN

CENTER, VIRGINIA BEACH, VIR,

AND THAT'S THE CBN DISASTER

RELIEF FUND.

CBN HAS GOT ONE, AND THEN WE

ALSO HAVE "OPERATION

BLESSING" OPERATING IN OTHER

PARTS OF THE WORLD.

WE'RE OUT THERE TRYING TO

HELP THE POOR AND THE

NEEDY.

HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: COMING UP, THE

MOMENT JEWS HAVE BEEN

WAITING FOR FOR THOUSANDS OF

YEARS.

THE PRAYER AND THE HOPE

OF MANY GENERATIONS NEXT

YEAR IN JERUSALEM, SUDDENLY

BECOMES THIS YEAR IN

JERUSALEM.

Wendy: HEAR HOW ISRAELI

PARATROOPERS RECAPTURED THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, IT WAS A WAR

THAT CHANGED ISRAEL AND IT

CHANGED THE MIDDLE EAST.

IT WAS KNOWN AS THE SIX-DAY

WAR.

SCOTT ROSS TALKS TO THE

AUTHOR OF A NEW BOOK ON THAT

BATTLE, THE BATTLE THAT

REUNITED JERUSALEM, AND HOW

THE HEROS OF THAT WAR WENT

ON TO SHAPE THE NATION OF

ISRAEL.

[YELLING]

Reporter: THE TEMPLE

MOUNT IS IN OUR HANDS, THE

FAMOUS WORDS OF COMMANDER

MOTOR GORE, WHO'S MEN HELPED

REUNITE JERUSALEM,

FULFILLING A 2000-YEAR-OLD

DREAM.

THIS BOOK IS REALLY THE

STORY OF AN ISRAELI BAND

OF

BROTHERS, YOUNG ISRAELI

MEN

WHO GAVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE

THEIR GREATEST VICTORY, I

WOULD SAY IN HISTORY,

PROBABLY SINCE THE EXODUS

FROM EGYPT.

SUDDENLY WE'RE BORN AGAIN AS

A PEOPLE.

Reporter: I SPOKE WITH

AMERICAN-BORN ISRAELI YOSSI,

ABOUT THE STORY OF THE

ISRAELI PARATROOPERS WHO

REUNITED JERUSALEM AND

DIVIDED A NATION.

"WHEN GOD BRINGS ABOUT THE

RETURN TO ZION, WE WERE LIKE

DREAMERS, AND THEN OUR

MOUTHS WILL BE FILLED WITH

LAUGHTER, AND OUR TONGUES

WITH JOYOUS SONG."

AND THAT'S WHERE YOU GOT THE

TITLE.

HE TOOK ME TO THE CITY WHERE

MOTOR GORE COMMANDED HIS

TROOPS.

THE PARATROOPERS CAME TO

THIS SPOT ON THE MORNING OF

JUNE 7, 1967.

HE IS LOOKING OUT ON TO THE

TEMPLE MOUNT AND MAKING THE

FINAL PREPARATIONS IN HIS

MIND FOR THE DESCENT AND THE

CONQUEST OF THE OLD CITY.

HE SENT PARATROOPERS OF

BRIGADE 55.

AND HE TELLS THEM JEWS

WAITED THOUSANDS OF YEARS

FOR THIS MOMENT.

YOU ARE THE ONES WHO ARE

PRIVILEGED TO RESTORE

JERUSALEM TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

Reporter: WE RETRACED

THEIR STEPS TO LION'S GATE

OF THE OLD CITY.

THIS IS THE GATE THAT THE

PARATROOPERS, THE ISRAELI

SOLDIERS, ENTERED ON

JUNE 7th, 1967.

AND THEN WHEN THEY REACHED

THE TEMPLE MOUNT, THE FAMOUS

WORDS OF MATAGORE, WAS "THE

TETEMPLE MOUNT IS IN OUR

HANDS."

AND MANY OF THOSE

PARATROOPERS WERE SECULAR,

AND THEY WERE WEEPING AT THE

WALL.

Reporter: SO THE PRAYER

AND THE HOPE OF MANY

GENERATIONS, NEXT YEAR IN

JERUSALEM, IS THAT...

SUDDENLY IT BECOMES THIS

YEAR IN JERUSALEM.

Reporter: ALIVI

PERSONALLIZE PERSONALIZES

THE STORY.

WHAT I FELT WHAT WAS

MISSING IN THE WAY PEOPLE

RELATE TO THE STORY OF

ISRAEL WAS THAT PERSONAL

STORY.

I ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT

HAPPENED TO THE GUYS WHO

LIBERATED THE WESTERN WALL?

I GREW UP SYMBOLIZING THE

LIKE DREAMERS STORY OF

ISRAEL.

Reporter: THESE

PARATROOPERS, DO THEY REALLY

REFLECT A MIK MICRO

MICROCOSEM AND THE STORY OF

ISRAEL.

YOU HAVE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL, LEFT WIN

G

ERS, AND IT

WAS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME TO

TELL THE STORY OF THE WHOLE

PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.

BECAUSE THE

WAY

I I

UNDERSTAND THE JEWISH PEOPLE

IS THAT WE'RE A FAMILY.

Reporter: IT TOOK HIM

12 OF HIS 32 YEARS IN ISRAEL

TO WRITE THE BOOK.

ONE OF MY CHARACTERS

STARTS OFF AS A BOY, LIVING

WITH RADICALS.

HE FIGHTS THE TRADE UNIONS

AND HE CREATES THE FIRST

PRIVATIZED COMPANY IN THE

STATE OF ISRAEL AND OPENS

THE WAY TO THE HIGH-TECH

FREE ECONOMY THAT WE HAVE

TODAY.

Reporter: ONE BECAME

KNOWN AS ISRAEL'S BOB DYLAN,

AND ANOTHER STARTED THE

SETTLEMENT MOVEMENT IN JUDEA

AND SAMARIA.

ALIVI SAYS HIS BOOK TRIES TO

SHOW THE STRUGGLE OVER

MAKING PEACE WITH THE

PALESTINIANS AND DIVIDING

JERUSALEM.

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, I'VE

GOT JEWISH NEIGHBORS, I'VE

GOT ARAB

NEIGHBORS.

IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD AND

THE

SAME BUILDING.

NOW, HOW DO YOU SEPARATE

THAT?

HOW DO YOU DIVIDE A CITY,

WITHOUT, GOD FORBID,

DESTROYING IT?

I DON'T SEE HOW JERUSALEM

CAN BE SHARED BETWEEN TWO

POLITICAL ENTITIES THAT ARE

EMERGING OUT OF A HUNDRED

-YEAR WAR.

Reporter: AND PEOPLE

FROM MY WORLD VIEW AND MY

CHRISTIAN VIEW, WE TAKE VERY

SERIOUSLY THE PALMIST, WHEN

HE SAYS, "PRAY FOR THE

PEOPLE OF JERUSALEM.

MAY THEY PROSPER WHO LOVE

YOU."

AS WE SIT HERE, HOW DO YOU

PRAY FOR THIS CITY?

I PRAY THAT I PERSONALLY

SHOULD BE WORTHY OF LIVING

HERE AND HOLDING THIS STORY

AT THE MOMENT.

I PRAY THAT THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL WILL BE WORTHY OF

THIS STORY.

I PRAY FOR OUR STRENGTH.

I PRAY FOR OUR GENEROSITY OF

SPIRIT.

I PRAY THAT WE BE PROTECTED

FROM HATRED, THAT OUR HEARTS

BE OPEN TO LOVE ALL OF THE

PEOPLE OF THIS LAND, AND ALL

THOSE WHO TURN TOWARD THE

CITY WITH HOPE.X8

AND I PRAY FOR ALL OF US.

THAT'S MY PRAYER.

Pat: WELL, YOU KNOW,

THAT'S ONE OF THE GREAT

POINTS OF PROPHECY, WHERE

JESUS CHRIST SAYS JERUSALEM

WILL BE UNDER FOOT OF THE

GENTILES UNTIL THE TIME OF

THE GENTILES IS FULFILLED.

THAT PROPHECY WAS LITERALLY

FULFILLED IN 1967, IN THAT

SIX-DAY WAR, WHEN THE JEWS

TOOK OVER JERUSALEM FOR THE

FIRST TIMES SINCE THE DAYS

THEY WERE INVADED BY THE

BABYLONIANS.

THAT'S 2500 YEARS OR SO OF

HISTORY.

AND SUDDENLY THE WORDS OF

JESUS WERE FULFILLED, WHICH

BASICALLY SAYS WHEN

JERUSALEM IS NO LONGER

TRODDEN UNDER FOOT OF THE

GENTILES, AND THE TIMES OF

THE GENTILES WILL BE

FULFILLED, AND SO YOU HAD AN

ACCELERATION OF THE PROBLEMS

IN THE GENTILE WORLD EVER

SINCE THIS.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE IT IS

COMING TO CRESHENDO, AND

THAT'S BIBLICAL.

THAT LITTLE PIECE OF GROUND

IS VERY SPECIAL IN

PROPHECY.

AND, OF COURSE, IT IS VERY

SPECIAL TO THOSE OF US WHO

LOVE THE LORD AND TO THE

JEWISH PEOPLE, OBVIOUSLY,

BECAUSE IT'S THEIR CAPITAL.

Wendy: A GREAT STORY.

STILL AHEAD, THE RUGBY STAR

WHO TRIED TO KILL PLAYERS ON

THE FIELD AND LATER GOT

CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED

MURDER.

.

THE JUDGE SAID TO ME, THIS

GUY ALMOST DIED.

THE NEXT GUY YOU MIGHT

KILL.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT

TEMPERED HIS BLOOD THIRST,

NEXT.

Wendy: WELL, SOCCER,

THEY SAY IS A GENTLEMAN'S

GAME PLAYED BY HOOLIGANS.

RUGBY, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS

A HOOLIGAN'S GAME PLAYED BY

GENTLEMAN.

THIS DAYS CHARLES TUNDA IS

FAR MORE LIKELY TO KNOCK YOU

OUT ON THE PITCH THAN OFF

IT.

BUT THAT WASN'T ALWAYS THE

CASE.

Reporter: RETIRED RUGBY

PLAYER CHARLES TUNDA IS FROM

AN ISLAND IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE PACIFIC THAT BEARS THE

SAME NAME.

YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE IT TO

PLAY IT.

Reporter: CHARLES WAS

KNOWN FOR HIS AGGRESSIVE

PLAY, SMASHING INTO GUYS ON

THE FIELD WAS A WAY TO VENT

HIS ANGER.

WHEN I PLAYED FU FUTE

BALL, I THOUGHT I COULD

EXPRESS MY WAY.

Reporter: HE GOT INTO

THE GAME BECAUSE HIS FATHER

MADE HIM.

THEY MOVED TO AUSTRALIA WHEN

CHARLES WAS FIVE.

HIS DAD THOUGHT RUGBY WOULD

HELP HIM ADJUST.

I COULDN'T SPEAK

ENGLISH.

SO MY ENGLISH WASN'T THAT

WELL, AND I WASN'T REALLY

CONFIDENT IN MYSELF.

A COUPLE YEARS LATER, MY

FATHER WANTS ME TO PLAY A

SPORT WHERE I'VE GOT TO

INTERACT WITH PEOPLE.

Reporter: WHILE PLAYING

RUGBY DID HELP CHARLES COME

OUT OF HIS SHELL, HIS

PARENTS DIDN'T OFTEN SEE

IT.

HIS DAD WAS A MERCHANT

MARINE AND HIS MOM WENT TO

THE U.S. TO PURSUE NURSING.

RAISED BY MY

GRANDMOTHER -- WHERE ARE MY

PARENTS?

Reporter: CHARLES WAS

RAISED BIKE A CHRISTIAN,

BUT --

IT SEEMED LIKE GOD WAS

DISTANT.

YOU'VE GOT TO LIVE A GOOD

LIFE.

Reporter: WITH THE

LIMITED TIME THEY DID HAVE,

HIS DAD WOULD DRINK.

I THINK ONCE IN MY LIFE

MY DAD SAID TO ME HE LOVED

ME.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE HE WAS

DRINKING.

SO I'VE GOT A CHIP ON MY

SHOULDER.

Reporter: CHARLES

CHANNELLED HIS ANGER ON TO

THE RUGBY FIELD.

FOR A WHILE IT PLAYED TO HIS

ADVANTAGE.

I HAD THE WHOLE WORLD IN

FRONT OF MY FEET.

BUT THIS FAME AND ALL OF

THIS STUFF, I DIDN'T KNOW

HOW TO TAKE IT.

Reporter: CHARLES WAS

SOON SWEPT UP IN THE CULTURE

OF PROFESSIONAL RUGBY.

DRINKING, WOMEN, IT WAS A

WHOLE DIFFERENT CULTURE,

WHERE I HAD TO, AGAIN,

ADJUST MYSELF TO IT.

Reporter: LIKE HIS DAD,

CHARLES STARTED DROWNING HIS

EMOTIONS IN LIQUOR.

DRINKING AND JUST NOT

STOPPING, TO THE POINT WHERE

I JUST BECOME VIOLENT.

THAT'S WHAT ALCOHOL AND THIS

STUFF DOES TO YOU.

IT BRINGS OUT ALL OF THE

STUFF ON THE BOT TOMB.

BOTTOM.

Reporter: SEVERAL TIMES

HE WAS ARRESTED, AND ONE

NIGHT HE LOST ALL CONTROL.

WE WENT INTO A BAR AND I

WAS LOOKING FOR TROUBLE.

I WENT UP TO THE POOL TABLE

AND PUSHED ALL OF THESE

GUYS.

AND A GUY WAS PUSHING ME AND

SAYING, HEY, WHAT'S GOING

ON?

THAT JUST SORT OF SNAPPED

ME.

I JUST UNLEASHED IT.

I ALMOST KILLED THIS GUY.

Reporter: CHARLES WAS

ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT.

THE JUDGE HAD ENOUGH OF

HIM.

THE JUDGE SAID TO ME,

LISTEN, THIS IS NOT THE

FIRST TIME.

AND HIS GUY ALMOST DIED.

YOU HAVE TO GO AWAY AND DO

SOME TIME BECAUSE NEXT TIME,

YOU KNOW, YOU MIGHT KILL

SOMEBODY.

Reporter: ALONE,

DISCOURAGED, AND FACING AN

END TO HIS RUGBY CAREER,

CHARLES WAS FORCED TO DEAL

WITH WHAT HE HAD DONE AND

WHO HE HAD BECOME.

IT WAS IN THAT QUIET SPACE

WHERE HE SAYS HE FELT GOD'S

PRESENCE.

I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT

LOOKING AT MY LIFE, AND WHAT

I'VE DONE, AND I WAS GOING

TO BE ALL RIGHT.

THAT I WAS GOING TO BE ALL

RIGHT.

Reporter: CHARLES HAD A

FRIEND WHO VISITED WITH HIM

AND SHARED THE LOVE OF

CHRIST.

BUT, YOU KNOW, I LOVE HIS

APPROACH IN TELLING ME IT

WAS ALL ABOUT THE LOVE OF

GOD.

IT'S ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP,

YOU KNOW, AND HOW MUCH HE

LOVED ME.

THAT WAS KIND OF HARD FOR ME

TO SWALLOW.

BUT THE MORE TIME I SPENT

WITH HIM, HE TAUGHT ME HOW

TO PRAY.

HE PRAYED FOR ME, PRAYED FOR

MY FAMILY.

IT WAS ALMOST LIKE CHRIST IN

THE PERSON OF MY FRIEND.

THAT'S WHY IT GOT MY

ATTENTION BECAUSE HE WAS

CONSISTENT.

Reporter: CHARLES BEGAN

A RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST

THROUGH HIS PRAYERS, READING

GOD'S WORD AND CHOOSING

BETTER FRIENDS.

BUT THERE WAS STILL

SOMETHING FOR HIM TO DO TO

FEEL BETTER FROM THE HURT HE

FELT BY HIS CHILDHOOD.

THAT'S THE FIRST THING HE

TOLD ME, YOU'VE GOT TO

FORGIVE YOUR PARENTS.

THE LOVE I DIDN'T RECEIVE,

THE PERSON I BECAME, I

BLAMED THEM FOR THAT.

GOD SAID YOU NEED TO PUT

THAT ASIDE.

Reporter: CHARLES

OVERCAME HIS ANGER ISSUES

AND HIS DEPENDENCY ON

ALCOHOL.

> HE IS MARRIED AND RAISING

A YOUNG SON WITH HIS WIFE.

HE IS ALSO BACK ON THE FIELD

AS A RUGBY COACH IN HIS

NATIVE TONGA.

MENTORING KIDS.

THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST,

I CANNOT EXPLAIN.

IT IS SOMETHING I CANNOT

FATHOM.

IT IS SO AMAZING.

I HAVE COME TO KNOW WHO I AM

IN CHRIST.

NOT WHAT THE WORLD HAS GIVEN

TO ME, BUT HE LOVES ME

UNCONDITIONALLY.

I AM SOMEBODY REGARDLESS OF

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY, YOU

KNOW?

Wendy: THE LOVE OF

JESUS CHRIST HE CANNOT

EXPLAIN.

YOU KNOW, PAT, THAT'S THE

ONLY THING THAT CAN TURN

SOMEONE WITH THAT KIND OF

RAGE INTO A GENTLE GIANT

NOW.

IT'S AMAZING.

Pat: IT IS A THRILLING

STORY.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: STILL TO COME,

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT

ON."

PATRICIA WRITES IN, "MY

SISTER LIES AND GOSPELS

GOSSIPS ABOUT ME.

SHE THINKS SHE IS STILL

GOING TO GET INTO HEAVEN AND

GOD WILL FORGIVE HER EVERY

TIME.

IS SHE RIGHT?"

WE'VE GOT ANOTHER "Q" AND

"A" SESSION WITH PAT, SO

DON'T MISS IT COMING U.

COMING UP LATER...HER WATER

BROKE EIGHT WEEKS EARLY.

THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT KEEPS

THIS BABY IN THE WOMB UNTIL

HER DUE DATE.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB" FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

AN AMERICAN COUPLE IS

FINALLY FREE AFTER A

TWO-YEAR ORDEAL WITH THE

GOVERNMENT OF QATAR.

MATTHEW AND GRACE WANG WERE

CLEARED OF CHARGES IN THEIR

ADOPTED DAUGHTER'S DEATH

LAST WEEK.

WHEN THEY TRIED TO LEAVE THE

COUNTRY, THEY WERE HELD IN

THE AIRPORT AND HAD THEIR

PASSPORTS CONFISCATED.

YESTERDAY THEY WERE TOLD

THEY COULD LEAVE QATAR.

THE COUPLE WAS ARRESTED IN

2013 AFTER THEIR ADOPTED

DAUGHTER DIED

UNEXPECTANTLY.

THE WANGS SAY THEY ARE

RELIEVED AND ARE HEADING

HOME

TO LOS ANGELES.

A FLORIDA JUDGE

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO BE

TALKING TO YOU ON THIS VERY

FESTIVE SEASON BEFORE

CHRISTMAS.

BUT IN ONE FORMER SOVIET

REPUBLIC, ONE FOURTH OF THAT

POPULATION IS NOT FESTIVE.

THEY'RE SUFFERING FROM MAL

MALNUTRITION.

THAT'S ONE QUARTER OF THE

POPULATION, AND THAT'S WHY

CBN IS THERE, HELPING PEOPLE

IN REMOTE VILLAGES.

WE'RE NOT JUST GIVING THEM

FOOD.

WE'RE ALSO GIVING THEM A WAY

TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES FOR

YEARS TO COME.

Reporter: 12 YEARS OLD

MIRA LIVES IN KIRKISTAN WITH

HER MOTHER AND SISTERS.

EVERYONE IN THE FAMILY

SUFFERS FROM CHRONIC ANEMIA,

DUE TO LACK OF GOOD

NUTRITION.

I KNOW WE NEED TO EAT

BETTER, BUT WE CANNOT AFFORD

IT.

SOMETIMES DURING THE DAY I

GO TO SLEEP AND FALL DOWN.

MY MOM SAYS IT IS CALLED

FAINTING.

SHE SAYS IT IS BECAUSE WE

HAVE SO LITTLE FOOD.

SHE DOES WELL AT SCHOOL, BUT

SOMETIMES SHE MISSES THINGS

BECAUSE SHE IS SO ANEMIC.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND

RECENTLY ABANDONED THE

FAMILY, LEAVING HER ALONE TO

RAISE THEIR THREE CHILDREN.

SHE GROWS VEGETABLES IN HER

GARDEN AND BAKES FLAT BREAD

TO FEED HER DAUGHTERS.

THAT'S ALL OF THE FOOD THEY

HAVE.

I WORK HARD ALL OF THE

TIME, AND I DON'T EAT ENOUGH

MYSELF.

I KNOW MY BABY WILL SOON

NEED MORE THAN MOTHER'S

MILK, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW

I'M GOING TO FEED HER.

I SEE MY MOTHER

STRUGGLING, AND THAT MAKES

ME SAD.

I SEE HER CRYING AND PRAYING

A LOT.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

KIRKSISTAN IS A MUSLIM

COUNTRY, SHE BECAME A

CHRISTIAN YEARS AGO.

I PR I PRAY ALL OF THE

TIME, LORD ALMIGHTY, YOU CAN

DO EVERYTHING.

HELP ME, PLEASE.

I PRAYED TO HIM AND ASKED

GOD TO GIVE US A COW.

Reporter: WHEN WE HEARD

ABOUT THE FAMILY AND THEIR

SIMPLE NEEDS, WE KNEW WE

COULD HELP.

CBN GAVE THEM A COW AND

CHICKENS SO THEY CAN HAVE A

WELL-BALANCED DIET.

IT IS TRULY A MIRACLE FOR

OUR FAMILY.

IN ALL OF MY LIFE, I HAVE

NEVER SEEN SUCH GENEROSITY.

Reporter: NOW THEY HAVE

MILK, CHEESE, AND EGGS EVERY

DAY, THANKS TO CBN.

IN FACT, THEY HAVE SO MUCH,

NIRZADA IS SELLING THE EXTRA

MILK AND EGGS TO NEIGHBORS.

MY CHILDREN'S STOMACHS

ARE ALWAYS FULL NOW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HELPING US.

I'M HAPPY AND HEALTHY AND I

DON'T NEED ANYTHING ELSE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T THINK

YOU WERE REACHING OUT TO

KIRKISTAN, DID YOU?

BUT WE ARE IN YOUR NAME AND

IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

CAN'T HEAL EVERYBODY.

CAN'T FEED EVERYBODY.

CAN'T TAKE CARE OF ALL OF

THE SICK, BUT WE CAN HELP A

BUNCH OF THEM, AND THEY, IN

TURN, CAN HELP OTHERS.

YOU CAN JUST PICK UP THE

TELEPHONE THIS CHRISTMASTIME

AND SAY, YOU CAN COUNT ON

ME.

1-800-759-0700.

IF YOU WANT TO DESIGNATE

SOMETHING FOR SOME SPECIAL

NEED, BY ALL MEANS SAY SO.

WELL, IT'S TIME TO "BRING IT

ON."

Wendy: YES, AND WE'VE

GOT SOME GOOD ONES TODAY.

PATRICIA WRITES IN, "MY

SISTER LIES AND GOSSIPS

ABOUT ME.

SHE BELIEVES EVERY TIME SHE

LIES AND GOSSIPS, GOD

FORGIVES HER AND SHE WILL GO

TO HEAVEN.

I SAID, NO, YOU SHOULD STOP

THE LIES.

I THOUGHT THAT WOULD HELP

HER STOP."

Pat: I WANT TO SHARE

WITH YOU, IN ANSWER TO THAT

QUESTION, A SCRIPTURE, FOUND

IN REVELATION 22: 15:

"OUTSIDE ARE THE DOGS, THOSE

WHO PRACTICE MAGIC ARE THE

DOGS."

THE DOGS ARE MALE HOMOSEXUAL

MEN ARPROSTITUTES.

* THOSE WHO PRACTICE MAGIC

ARTS, THE SEXUALLY IMMORAL,

THE MURDERERS, THE IDOLTERS,

AND EVERYONE WHO LOVES AND

PRACTICES FALSEHOOD, THOSE

WHO ARE LIARS.

NO LIARS SHALL ENTER THE

KINGDOM OF GOD."

THAT'S THERE.

TELL YOUR SISTER, SHE IS NOT

GOING TO BE ABLE TO KEEP

THIS STUFF UP AND GET AWAY

WITH IT BECAUSE THE LORD IS

VERY EXPLICIT.

AGAIN, TAKE HER TO

REVELATION AND SHOW HER

THAT.

OUTSIDE, ALONG WITH ALL OF

THE IMMORAL AND THE MURDERS

AND THE SORCERERS, THOSE WHO

LOVE AND PRACTICE LYING --

THE LORD HATES IT.

Wendy: THIS PERSON

WRITES, "I PRAYED, AND I WAS

PRAYING, I HEARD THESE WORDS

'BE STILL FOR I AM

WORKING'."

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Pat: THE BIBLE

SCRIPTURE IS BE STILL AND

KNOW GOD.

IT IS BE STILL, DON'T BE

AGITATED, AND REST IN THE

LORD.

THERE IS A GREAT DEAL TO BE

SAID FORESTING IN THE LORD. FOR RESTING INTHE LORD.

WHAT YOU'RE HEARING IS YOU

NEED TO REST.

STOP WORKING AND BEING

FRANTIC ABOUT YOUR PROBLEMS,

AND LET THE LORD WORK IT

OUT.

Wendy: IF NOT, IT ONLY

CAUSES HARM.

Pat: THAT'S RIGHT.

Wendy: DONNA WRITES IN,

"OUR YOUNG ADULT DAUGHTER

HAS TOLD US SHE IS READING A

LOT ABOUT ZEN.

AND SHE LIKES IT AND HAS

SOME TRIN TRINKITS ON HER

BRACELET FROM IT.

I'M CONCERNED IT LEADING HER

AWAY FROM GOD.

WHAT SHOULD I TELL HER?"

Pat: I THINK SOME OF

THESE OCCULT PRACTICES --

MANY DEAL WITH OTHER FORMS

OF -- IN HINDUISM, THERE ARE

ABOUT 300 GODS.

AND ZEN IS A KIND OF OF

BUDDHISM, BUT BUDDHISM IS A

KIND OF FORM OF HINDUISM

HINDUISM.

AND SO THE IDEA OF GETTING

INTO SOME STATE OF NO

CONSCIOUSNESS, THAT'S THE

THOUGHT OF A ZEN-LIKE

TRANCE.

I THINK IT LEADS YOU ASTRAY,

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT

IT.

THIS STUFF IS FOUNDED ON

DEMONIC SPIRITS.

THESE OTHER GODS AND DEITIES

ARE DEMONS.

Wendy: JESUS IS THE

PRINCE OF PEACE.

AND PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR

THAT PEACE, THAT ZEN, IN

PLACES THEY CAN'T GET IT.

Pat: YOU'RE RIGHT.

"MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU, NOT

LIKE THE WORLD GIVES YOU."

YOU SEE, THE WHOLE THING

ABOUT HINDUISM -- IT HAS

KARMA.

YOU'D BE A COW AND THEN

YOU'D COME BACK AS

CLEOPATRA, AND THEN YOU

WOULD COME BACK AS --

Wendy: KING TUT.

Pat: OR A COW ON THE

STREET.

BUT YOU NEVER GET OFF THAT

KARMA.

IT IS ALWAYS THERE.

AND BUDDHA THOUGHT IF I CAN

REACH A POINT WHERE I HAVE

NO DESIRE WHATSOEVER, I CAN

GET INTO NIRVANA STATE.

THAT WAS THE WHOLE IDEA.

AND I COMPLETELY LOSE TRACK

OF EVERYTHING.

BUT THAT IS NOT REALITY.

IT JUST ISN'T.

Wendy: CHERYL WRITES

IN, "WHEN JESUS TURNED OVER

THE MONEY CHANGERS' TABLES,

SAYING THEY HAVE TURNED IN

THE HOUSE OF GOD INTO A

PLACE OF THIEVES, DOES THAT

MEAN WE CAN'T SELL ANYTHING

AT CHURCH, OR IS IT OKAY

BECAUSE YOU HELP CHRISTIANS

IN THEIR CHRISTIAN WALK?"

Pat: ONE THING THEY

WERE DOING AT THAT TABLE IS

THEY WERE SELLING DEFECTIVE

BIRDS AND CHEATING ON THE

MONEY.

IT WASN'T JUST

TRANSACTIONS.

HE SAID, "MY HOUSE SHOULD BE

A HOUSE OF PRAYER."

AND WE DON'T WANT TO MAKE IT

A HOUSE OF COMMERCE.

THE IDEA THAT THERE ARE SOME

TAPES YOU CAN GET TO ENHANCE

YOUR SPIRITUAL WALK, THAT'S

OKAY.

BUT YOU SHOULDN'T BE SETTING

UP A BIZARRE, SELLING

STUFF.

MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A

HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL

NATIONS.

Wendy: I KNOW IN SOME

CHURCHES, THEY WON'T SELL

ANYTHING DURING THE SERMON.

BUT DURING THE BREAK THEY

WILL SELL THINGS.

Pat: I HAVE A RULE,

THEY'RE HERE AS OUR GUESTS

AND WE'RE HERE TO BLESS

THEM.

IF YOU WANT TO GIVE THINGS

TO THEM, FINE, BUT WE'RE NOT

GOING TO BE SELLING STUFF.

DO YOU HAVE ANOTHER

QUESTION?

Wendy: THAT IS IT, AND

WE APPRECIATE YOUR WISDOM.

UP NEXT, A PREGNANT MOM GOES

INTO EARLY DELIVERY.

I TOLD MY HUSBAND, THIS

IS NOT RIGHT.

Wendy: HEAR WHAT

HAPPENED THAT STUNNED THE

DOCTORS.

WHEN WE RETURN.

Wendy: APPARENTLY THESE

DAYS CHRISTMAS IS A FOUR

LETTER WORD FOR SOME

PEOPLE.

SO THIS YEAR WE ENCOURAGE

YOU TO BRING LIGHT TO A

CULTURE THAT WANTS TO REMOVE

CHRIST FROM CHRISTMAS.

IF YOU'RE A CBN PARTNER,

PLEASE WATCH FOR THIS

ENVELOPE IN THE MAIL.

INSIDE YOU'LL FIND THIS

CHRISTMAS CLING OR STICKER,

AND IT SAYS MERRY

CHRISTMAS.

AND YOU CAN DISPLAY IT IN

YOUR CAR OR ON YOUR WINDOW

AT HOME.

IF YOU'RE NOT A CBN PARTNER,

WE'LL SEND THIS TO YOU

ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE.

JUST CALL THE NUMBER ON YOUR

SCREEN, 1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON TO

cbn.com AND REQUEST IT.

TOGETHER WE CAN TRANSFORM

OUR NEIGHBORHOODS AND OUR

NATION.

LET'S SPREAD THE REAL REASON

FOR THE SEASON AND HELP KEEP

CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS BY

PUTTING THE CLING UP ON AND

SAYING MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Pat: AND WHEN THE

SEASON ENDS YOU CAN TAKE IT

OFF.

Wendy: YOU CAN PEEL IT

RIGHT OFF.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT THAT.

Pat: THESE DAYS,

YOLINDA HAS A HAPPY BABY

GIRL.

BUT NOT LONG AGO, HER

DAUGHTER'S HEALTH WAS IN

JEOPARDY, AND SHE WAS

PARALYZED WITH FEAR.

I WAS ABOUT 32 WEEKS WHEN

I FELT THAT SOMETHING WAS

WRONG WITH MY PREGNANCY.

I FELT VERY TIRED.

AND MY BACK WAS HURTING A

LOT.

SOMETHING IN ME SAID

SOMETHING WAS WRONG WITH MY

PREGNANCY.

BUT, AGAIN, I JUST KIND OF

IGNORED IT.

WE HAD TO GO TO MY FRIEND'S

HOUSE IN THE EVENING.

IT WAS AROUND 6:00, 7:00 AT

NIGHT.

I WENT UP THE STAIRS, AND I

STARTED FEELING LIQUID.

I JUST TOLD MY HUSBAND, THIS

IS NOT RIGHT.

AND I JUST FELT THAT I HAD

TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL.

I REMEMBER ASKING THE LADY

THAT DID THE ULTRASOUND TO

GIVE ME THE NUMBERS.

THEY EXPLAINED TO ME THAT

BETWEEN A 10 AND 22, THAT'S

A NORMAL RANGE FOR THE

FLUID.

BUT WHEN THEY CHECKED MINE,

IT WAS A SEVEN, LOWER THAN

NORMAL.

AND THEN TWO DAYS AFTER, I

BELIEVE, IT WAS A 5.3.

AND I WAS AFRAID.

AND I WAS WATCHING TV, AND

IT'S WHEN I WAS GOING

THROUGH THE CHANNELS, AND I

STOPPED AT "700 CLUB."

THEY SAID, OH, THERE IS THIS

LADY THAT IS WORRIED ABOUT

HER BABY.

Terry: YOU ARE SO

FEARFUL THAT SOMETHING IS

WRONG WITH THIS BABY.

THAT SPIRIT OF FEAR IS GONE

NOW IN JESUS' NAME, AND YOU

ARE GOING TO ENJOY THE REST

OF HIS PREGNANCY AND DELIVER

A PERFECTLY HEALTHY BABY.

I JUST STARTED SOBBING.

I STARTED FEELING A WARMTH

IN MY BODY.

AND I JUST SAID, THIS IS FOR

ME.

THIS HAS TO BE FOR ME.

AFTER THAT, I DIDN'T FEEL

ANYMORE FEAR.

I TOLD THE LORD, IF YOU WANT

MY BABY TO BE BORN NOW, IT'S

FINE.

MY PASTOR CAME AND HE

ACTUALLY FELT IT.

HE SAID, YOUR ROOM FEELS

VERY PEACEFUL.

YOU FEEL VERY PEACEFUL.

WE WORSHIPPED MORE THERE

THAT DAY.

AND THEY KEPT GIVING MY

ULTRASOUNDS, LIKE EVERY

OTHER DAY, AND THE WATER

STARTED GOING UP AND UP AND

UP.

THE LAST LADY THAT DID THE

ULTRASOUND, SHE'S, LIKE,

I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS

BEFORE.

ACTUALLY EVERY TIME THAT A

LADY RUPTURES AND THE WATER

STARTS TO COME OUT, THERE IS

NO GOING BACK.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE YOUR

BABY AT THAT TIME.

AND AFTER THE 11th DAY,

WHEN THEY TOLD ME YOU'RE

READY TO GO HOME, I WAS ABLE

TO KEEP HER INSIDE OF ME

UNTIL HER DUE DATE.

FEAR ALWAYS IS AROUND THE

CORNER.

GOD IS THE ONE THAT TAKES

THE FEAR AWAY FROM YOU.

AGAIN, YOU TRUST HIM.

HAVE YOU TO LEARN TO TRUST

IN HIM.

GOD DID MIRACLES WHEN JESUS

WAS HERE.

HE STILL DOES IT, BUT WE

JUST HAVE TO HAVE THAT

FAITH, THAT TRUST IN HIM,

THAT HE IS THERE FOR US ALL

OF THE TIME.

I'M LIVING PROOF THAT IF YOU

PUT YOUR TRUST IN HIM, HE

DOES EVERYTHING.

YOU JUST LET HIM DO IT.

Pat: IF YOU TRUST IN

HIM, HE DOES EVERYTHING.

WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY.

THE AMNIOTIC FLUID GOING

BACK UP AGAIN IS UNDREAMED

OF.

GOD HIMSELF HAD TO DO THAT.

TERRY DIDN'T KNOW THAT LADY,

BUT GOD GAVE HER A WORD.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT AN

ANSWER TO PRAYER HERE.

FOR MONTHS, PHILLIP, AND

ROCKWALL, TEXAS, HAD SPASMS

IN HIS BACK.

HE WAS IN A GREAT DEAL OF

PAIN.

ONE DAY PHILLIP WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," WHEN HE

HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVE A WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE.

YOU SAID, "YOU'RE GETTING

MUSCLE SPASMS ALL OVER YOUR

BACK.

IT IS VERY PAINFUL."

AND PHILLIP FELT MEDIUM

IMMEDIATE RELIEF AND HE HAS

BEEN PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE.

Pat: IN INDIANAPOLIS, A

WOMAN NAMED PAULA WAS RUSHED

TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR

CAT SCANS.

THE C.A.T. SCAN SHOWED AN

AORTIC RUPTURE.

AND SHE CALLED "THE 700

CLUB."

WHEN SHE WENT BACK TO THE

EMERGENCY ROOM, THE DOCTOR

CLAIMED A MIRACLE BECAUSE

THE ANEURYSM DISAPPEARED.

I'M SURPRISED THEY LET HER

LEAVE, BUT THEY DID AND SHE

WAS HEALED.

I WANT TO TELL YOU, FOLKS,

THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE,

NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE.

I WAS READING A COUPLE OF

DAYS AGO ABOUT JESUS.

HE WENT ABOUT AND HE HEALED

THE BLIND PEOPLE.

HE HEALED CRIPPLED PEOPLE.

HE HEALED PEOPLE THAT HAD

EPILEPSY.

HE HAD HEALED

DEMON-POSSESSED PEOPLE.

THERE WAS NOBODY WHOEVER

CAME TO HIM THAT DIDN'T GET

HEALED BECAUSE HE IS GOD

ALMIGHTY.

IF WE PRAY, HE SAID I'LL DO

WHAT YOU ASK IN MY NAME.

SO WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS RIGHT NOW.

FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME WE

JOIN HANDS, AND WE BELIEVE

GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS

CHRIST OF NAZARETH.

LET THE POWER OF GOD TOUCH

LIVES NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

WENDY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEBODY, YOU HAVE A

CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY.

YOU ARE SO SENSITIVE TO ALL

KINDS OF DEODORANTS AND

CLEANING AGENTS.

AND IT ALMOST MAKES YOU

SICK.

AND YOU KIND OF GET ANGRY

WHEN YOU SMELL IT.

AND THE LORD WANTS TO

DELIVER YOU FROM THAT RIGHT

NOW.

JUST RECEIVE YOUR HEALING IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: SOMEBODY HAS CHEST

PAINS.

YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR CHEST IS

GOING TO EXPLODE.

AND YOU'RE HAVING A HARD

TIME.

YOU'VE GOT SHORTNESS AND

BREATH AND YOUR GASPING.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR CHEST,

AND IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

TOUCH.

Wendy: THERE ARE MANY

PEOPLE, JESUS IS SPEAKING

PEACE TO YOUR HEART.

YOU'RE GETTING SO CAUGHT UP

IN THE WORLD-WIND OF THE

COMMERCIAL OF CHRISTMAS, AND

ALL OF THE TASKS YOU HAVE TO

DO.

JESUS SAYS, PEACE TO YOU, BE

STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM

GOD.

Pat: LORD, TOUCH LIVES

ACROSS THIS AREA.

PEOPLE WHO ARE SAD ABOUT THE

HOLIDAY, YOU'RE SAD, YOU'RE

LONELY, AND GOD IS GOING TO

REACH IN AND GIVE YOU JOY.

HE IS GOING TO TAKE AWAY

THAT GARMENT OF SADNESS AND

GIVE YOU A GARMENT OF

PRAISE.

YOU'LL BE PRAISING THE

LORD.

SO JUST, RIGHT NOW, TOGETHER

WITH US, PRAISE JESUS CHRIST

AND THANK HIM FROM THE DEPTH

OF YOUR BEING.

AND GOD IS GOING TO

TRANSFORM YOUR PROBLEM INTO

SOMETHING, A REAL BLESSING.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

Wendy: THANK YOU, GOD.

AMEN.

Pat: FOLKS, WE'RE GOING

TO LEAVE YOU WITH OUR POWER

MINUTE FROM JOHN 14:

"WHATEVER YOU ASK IN MY

NAME, THAT WILL I DO SO THAT

THE FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED

IN THE SON."
