DISEASE-FREE IN 2015.

AND THEY NEED TO START IT

EARLY IF THEY WANT IT TO BE

EFFECTIVE.

THEIR HEALTH BENEFITS ARE

REALLY COMPROMISED.

Wendy: AND FIND OUT

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO BOOST

YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.

IT IS KIND OF THAT SAFETY

MECHANISM TO SUPPORT YOUR

IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Wendy: PLUS...ISIS

AGAINST THE WORLD, WHAT

HAPPENS IF THEY GET NUKES.

THE CHILLING STORY BEHIND

JOEL C. ROSENBERG'S NEW

NOVEL, ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

A SHOCKING TERRORIST ATTACK

TODAY IN PARIS, FRANCE.

WITH AT LEAST A DOZEN PEOPLE

DEAD.

TWO MASKED GUNMAN ATTACKED A

NEWSPAPER OFFICE.

THEY SHOUTED ALLAHU AKBAR AS

THEY STORMED THE BUILDING.

IT WAS THE DEADLIEST TERROR

ATTACK IN FRANCE IN AT LEAST

TWO DECADES.

THAT PAPER, BY THE WAY, JUST

PUBLISHED A CARTOON MOCKING

THE LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC

TERRORIST GROUP CALLED

ISIS.

JOINING US WITH MORE IS

AUTHOR JOEL C. ROSENBERG,

WHO HAS JUST WRITTEN A NEW

BOOK, PUBLISHED YESTERDAY, I

BELIEVE, JUST COME OUT,

CALLED "THE THIRD TARGET,"

AND HE IS TALKING ABOUT WHAT

ISIS WOULD DO IF THEY GOT

HOLD OF WEAPONS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

GREAT TO BE WITH YOU,

PAT.

THANK YOU.

Pat: WHAT IS THIS DEAL

WITH PARIS?

THE NEWSPAPER HAD BEEN

MOCKIN MOCKING PROPHET

MUHAMMED, AND HAD JUST

PUBLISHED A CARTOON MOCKING

THE LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC

STATE, ABDULLAH ALMALKI.

AND THE NEW YEAR'S

ANNOUNCEMENT SAYING GOOD

HEALTH TO EVERYONE, EVEN

THOUGH THEY ARE CUTTING OFF

THE HEADS OF PEOPLE.

IT IS A TERRORIST ATTACK, AS

YOU SAID, THE WORST IN

FRANCE IN MANY, MANY YEARS.

AND IT IS EVIDENCE THAT ISIS

IS MOVING.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO STAY

CONTAINED IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

Pat: IN THIS ATTACK,

WERE THE TERRORISTS KILLED

OR DID THEY GET AWAY?

THEY GOT AWAY.

IT IS TWO, MAYBE THREE, AND

I SAW VIDEO THIS MORNING OF

SOMEBODY SHOOTING FROM A

ROOFTOP, OF THEM JUMPING IN

A CAR AND DRIVING OFF.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THERE WAS

VIDEO OF THE CAR, AND THERE

IS AN ALL-POINTS BULL

BULLETIN OUT.

Pat: YOU'VE WRITTEN A

BOOK, AND THE DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT IS WONDERING IF

YOU GOT AN INSIGHT TO THEIR

COMPUTERS.

"THE THIRD TARGET," HOW COME

YOU WROTE THIS BOOK?

"THE THIRD TARGET," IS

WHAT I THOUGHT WAS THE NEXT

CONCERN FOR THE UNITED

STATES.

WHEN I BEGAN WRITING IT, MY

PUBLISHER HAD NOT HEARD OF

ISIS, BUT AS I SAT DOWN WITH

FORMER C.I.A. DIRECTOR JIM

COLZI, AND PORTER GOZZ FROM

THE BUSH YEARS, THEY ALL

SAID THAT ISIS IS WHAT IS

COMING.

THEY SAID IT IS THIS

AL-QAEDA MORPHING INTO

SOMETHING WORSE.

Pat: HOW COME THE

PRESIDENT WAS SURPRISED, IF

TWO FORMER C.I.A. HEADS WAS

ALL WARNING PEOPLE, DOESN'T

HE GET BRIEFINGS ON THIS.

AS YOU KNOW, HE SKIPPED A

LOT OF THE BRIEFINGS.

AND THAT'S A FACTUAL POINT.

IT WAS A YEAR AGO TODAY THAT

THE PRESIDENT GAVE AN

INTERVIEW WITH A NEW YORKER,

AND HE SAID IN THAT

INTERVIEW, PUBLISHED A NEW

DAYS LATER, THAT ISIS WAS A

J.V.TEAM, NOT A SERIOUS

PLAYER, AND AL-QAEDA WAS

ON THE RUN.

I WAS ALREADY DEEP INTO

WRITING "THE THIRD TARGET,"

AND I KNEW THAT WAS NOT THE

CASE.

BUT I WILL ADMIT, I DIDN'T

EXPECT ISIS TO BECOME AS BIG

A THREAT FOR ANOTHER FOUR OR

FIVE YEARS.

Pat: THEY WERE DRIVING

PICKUP TRUCKS WITH MACHINE

GUNS.

IT WAS TOTALLY ILLOGICAL.

I CAN UNDERSTAND IT.

Reporter: THIS IS A

NOVEL ABOUT A "NEW YORK

TIMES" FOREIGN CORRESPOND

WHO HEARS A RUMOR THAT ISIS

HAS CAPTURED CHEMICAL

WEAPONS INSIDE SYRIA.

SO HE ASKS THE EDITOR IF HE

CAN GO AND INTERVIEW THE

COMMANDER, AND THE EDITOR

SAYS NO, AND THE REPORTER

GOES ANYWAY.

WHAT SETS INTO MOTION IS ME

BEING ABLE TO TAKE THE

READER INSIDE THIS WORLD OF

ISIS.

ISIS IS ALREADY TRYING TO

BRING DOWN THE SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT.

THEY'RE ALREADY TRYING TO

BRING DOWN THE IRAQI

GOVERNMENT.

SO THE QUESTION BECOMES,

WHAT IS THE NEXT TARGET?

WHAT IS THE THIRD TARGET?

IS IT THE UNITED STATES?

IS IT A EUROPEAN CAPITAL?

IS IT ISRAEL?

OR IS THERE A MODERN ARAB

STATE?

WHERE ARE THEY HEADED NEXT.

I DON'T THINK IT IS LIMITED

TO A THIRD.

Pat: YOU HAVE THE

PROTAGONIST IN HERE, THE

ISIS PLAYERS, AND THEY'RE

DEBATING WHERE TO GO NEXT?

THEY'RE NOT DEBATING.

THE REPORTER IS TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT WHERE THEY'RE

GOING.

CLEARLY THEY'RE PREPARING TO

ATTACK ON MULTIPLE FRONTS,

BUT IN THE NOVEL THEY

CAPTURE CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

AND THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT A

GENOCIDAL ATTACK.

I EVEN GOT INVITED TO COME

IN SIT DOWN IN JORDAN WITH

THE PRIME MINISTER OF

JORDAN, AND THE FOREIGN

MINISTER AND THE INTERIOR

MYSTERY BECAUSE I WANTED

MINISTER.

AND THE INTERIOR MINISTER

SAID IS THIS GOING TO BE

LIKE A TOM CLANCY NOVEL.

AND I SAID I HOPE SO.

HE SAID, GOOD.

SIT DOWN AND TAKE NOTES.

HE SAID, THE KING HAS

APPOINTED ME TO MAKE SURE

THAT YOUR SCENARIO NEVER

COMES TRUE IN OUR COUNTRY.

BECAUSE JORDAN IS VERY

WORRIED.

IF THE KING GETS ATTACKED

AND DESTROYED INSIDE JORDAN,

YOU WILL HAVE ISIS ON THE

BORDER OF JERUSALEM.

AND THIS IS A NIGHTMARE

SCENARIO.

Pat: AND THIS OIL THING

IS GOING ON, AND SAUDI

ARABIA, THAT ROSTA FIELD AND

THOSE PORTS AND SO FORTH ON

THE GULF ARE SO OPEN FOR

ATTACK.

THEY'RE PRIME TARGETS FOR

ISIS.

THEY ARE.

THEY ARE.

WHAT CONCERNS ME, PAT, IS

THE COMPLACENCY INSIDE THE

WHITE HOUSE.

FIRST THAT ISIS WAS NOT A

BIG DEAL, AND al-QAEDA WAS

BEING DESTROYED, THAT WE

COULD PULL ALL OF OUR FORCES

OUT OF IRAQ, WHEN EVEN THE

PRESIDENT'S DEFENSE

SECRETARIES, TWO OF THEM,

WERE TELLING HIM, THIS IS

NOT A GOOD IDEA.

IT IS TOO EARLY.

EVEN SECRETARY CLINTON WAS

SAYING, DON'T DO THIS.

I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF HER

FOREIGN POLICY.

BUT SHE WAS AT LEAST SAYING

THIS IS A BAD IDEA.

THE PRESIDENT DID ANYWAY.

AND HE SEEMS COMPLACENT TO

THIS THREAT.

UNFORTUNATELY, PARIS REMINDS

US THIS ISN'T FICTION, AND

THESE GUYS ARE COMING, AND

I'M CONCERNED THEY'RE COMING

HERE TO THE UNITED STATES.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU THINK

ABOUT THE WHOLE ATTITUDE

TOWARDS ISIS?

HE SAID, AS I RECALL, THIS

IS NOT AN ISLAMIC GROUP.

IN EFFECT, HE IS SAYING

THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM WITH

ISLAM.

THE KING OF JORDAN

DISAGREES.

HE SAID, THIS IS A THIRD

WORLD WAR AND THIS IS

ISLAM'S PROBLEM.

NOT TO SAY THAT ALL MUSLIMS

BUY INTO ISIS, BUT CLEARLY

THE ISLAMIC STATE IS

ISLAMIC.

IT SEES ITSELF AS ISLAMIC.

IT DOESN'T MATTER IF ANYONE

ELSE SEES IT, BUT IT SEES

ITSELF BEING DRIVEN BY

RADICAL ISLAM.

I THINK PEOPLE ARE GETTING

EXHAUSTED BY THE THREAT OF

RADICAL ISLAM.

BUT AS I MAKE A POINT

THROUGHOUT MANY OF MY

BOOKS -- AND YOU AND I HAVE

TALKED ABOUT IT -- IF YOU

MISUNDERSTAND THE NATURE AND

THREAT OF EVIL, YOU RISK

BEING BLINDSIDED BY IT.

IF WE GET OUR EYE OFF THE

BALL -- IRAN IS THE BIGGEST

THREAT IN THE REGION.

ISIS TRYING TO CAPTURE

CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL

WEAPONS, BUT AS YOU KNOW,

THEY'RE COMMITTING GENOCIDE

EVEN WITHOUT CHEMICAL

WEAPONS.

WE HAVE GENOCIDAL CONDITIONS

IN SYRIA AND IRAQ.

CHRISTIANS ARE BEING

MURDERED, THEY WANT TO KILL

JEWS IN ISRAEL.

REALLY, IT IS MUSLIMS WHO

ARE DYING MOST RIGHT NOW,

AND WE'VE GOT TO HAVE A

WESTERN ALLIANCE THAT IS

DECISIVE.

AND RIGHT NOW WE JUST DO

NOT.

Pat: THE LEADER OF

EGYPT IS A TERRIFIC GUY, I

THINK.

AND HE CAME OUT JUST

RECENTLY AND SAID, LOOK,

WE'VE GOT TO EXAMINE THIS

WHOLE IDEA OF ISLAM.

I THINK THE PRESIDENT OF

EGYPT -- FIRST OF ALL, HE IS

AN AUTHORITARIAN.

HE HAS SOME ISSUES.

BUT COMPARED TO THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, WE'RE NOT EVEN

CLOSE.

THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BE

WORKING WITH IRAQ AND WITH

EGYPT, JORDAN, THE SAUDIS,

AND ISRAEL.

THAT IS AN UNNATURALLY

EMERGING ALLIANCE AGAINST

IRAN AND AGAINST RADICAL

SUNNI ISLAM, AND YET THE

PRESIDENT WON'T PURSUE

THAT.

Pat: IS THERE ANYBODY

IN THE GOVERNMENT THAT

THINKS STRATEGICALLY.

THE SAUDIS HAVE MADE NOISES

IN THAT DIRECTION, AND THE

EYPTIANS HAVE MADE IT.

BUT WE WON'T PICK UP ON IT.

WHAT IS IT?

IT'S THE PRESIDENT.

I THINK IF YOU HAD DIFFERENT

LEADERS IN OFFICE, YOU WOULD

HAVE PEOPLE SAYING -- LOOK,

I KNOW PERSONALLY THAT A KEY

MEMBER OF THE CONGRESS SAT

WITH ALSISI, AND HE SAID, I

JUST SAT WITH ALSISI, AND HE

SAID HE HAS A BETTER

RELATIONSHIP WITH BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU IN ISRAEL THAN

WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA.

I'M GLAD THAT RELATIONSHIP

IS BUILDING, BUT IT IS

SOMETHING SERIES, WHEN THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES, WHOEVER THAT WOULD

BE, DOESN'T UNDERSTAND WHO

OUR ALLIES ARE.

WE WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT THE

SAUDIS WOULD HAVE BEEN

AGAINST RADICAL ISLAM.

THINGS HAVE CHANGED, AND THE

PRESIDENT DOESN'T SEEM TO

UNDERSTAND IT.

FORTUNATELY WE ONLY HAVE TWO

MORE YEARS OF THIS

PARTICULAR PRESIDENT.

2016 IS BUILDING UP.

BUT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE

PRESIDENT WE HAVE NOW.

Pat: THIS BOOK SOUNDS

FASCINATING.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS

AVAILABLE WHERE BOOKS ARE

SOLD.

IT IS JUST RELEASED.

IT IS CALLED "THE THIRD

TARGET."

YOU HAVE AN AGENT TAKEN OVER

BY THE "NEW YORK TIMES,",

THE OTHETHE OTHER WAY

AROUND.

THE NEW YORK'S REPORTER IS

IN THE THRALL OF IT.

GOD BLESS YOU.

JOEL C. ROSENBERG, AND IT'S

CALLED "THE THIRD TARGET,"

AND IT'S JUST OUT.

GET A COPY AND ENJOY IT.

THANK YOU, PAT.

Pat: SPEAKING OF ISIS,

THE ISLAMIC STATE IN SYRIA,

OR WHATEVER, THE TERRORIST

PLOT HAS BEEN UNCOVERED,

ALSO, IN ISRAEL.

AND WE'LL BRING YOU MORE ON

THAT STORY FROM OUR CBN NEWS

BUREAU IN WASHINGTON, COMING

UP RIGHT AFTER THIS.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB."

ISRAEL'S SECURITY AGENT SEE

HAS ARRESTED THREE

PALESTINIANS WHO HAD FORMED

AN ISIS TERROR CELL IN THE

WEST BANK CITY OF HEBRON.

THE THREE HAD REPORTED

PLANNED TO MURDER AN ISRAELI

SHOULDER AND USE HIS WEAPON

AND UNIFORM TO CARRY OUT A

TERRORIST ATTACK.

THIS IS THE FIRST CASE MADE

PUBLIC OF ISIS IN ISRAEL.

THE WOULD-BE TERRORIST

REPORTEDLY DID NOT HAVE

DIRECT CONTACT WITH OUTSIDE

FORCES, BUT FOLLOWED THE

GROUP'S IDEOLOGY.

ONE REPORT SAID THE ISRAEL

MILITARY IS CONCERNED THAT

ISIS VIDEOS ARE HAVING A

GROWING INFLUENCE ON

PALESTINIANS.

> WELL, THE PALESTINIANS

WILL JOIN THE INTERNATIONAL

CRIMINAL COURT BEGINNING IN

APRIL.

THIS WOULD MEAN THEY COULD

BRING WAR CRIME CHARGES

AGAINST ISRAEL.

THIS WOULD ALSO AFFECT THE

CHANCES OF AN

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE

DEAL.

ISRAEL RESPONDED BY FREEZING

MORE THAN $100 MILLION IN

TAX FUNDS COLLECTED FOR THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY.

THE U.S. ALSO OPPOSED THE

MOVE AND SAID IT WOULD

REVIEW ITS ANNUAL

$440 MILLION AID PACKAGE TO

THE PALESTINIANS.

AND THE MOVE COULD BACKFIRE

ON THE PALESTINIANS AS WELL

BECAUSE THEY COULD BE

ACCUSED OF WAR CRIMES FOR

ROCKET ATTACKS ON ISRAEL AND

OTHER VIOLENCE AGAINST

JEWISH TARGETS.

PAT?

Pat: THIS WHOLE THING

IS OUTRAGEOUS.

I THINK THE UNITED STATES --

DON'T JUST TALK ABOUT

REVIEWING THE THING, DO

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

SAY, LOOK, GUYS, NO MORE

MONEY.

CUT OFF THEIR MONEY.

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY IS

A JOKE.

AND MAHMOUD ABBAS, HE LOOKED

LIKE A NICE TYPE OF MAN AND

HE WAS GOING TO BE A

PEACEFUL MAN, AND HE IS

ANYTHING BUT.

I MET SEVERAL TIMES WITH

YASSER ARAFAT, WHO WAS, YOU

KNOW, A REAL TERRORIST, BUT

IN PERSON HE COULDN'T BE

NICER.

BUT ABBAS HAS BEEN JUST AS

BAD AS HAMAS, AND IT IS TIME

WE STOPPED GIVING THEM

MONEY.

AND THE WORLD COMMUNITY HAS

GOT TO STOP GIVING THEM

MONEY.

BUT THE IDEA OF LETTING THEM

GET INTO THE UNITED NATIONS'

CRIMINAL SYSTEM AND BEGIN

CHARGING AGAIN ISRAEL -- BUT

IT IS A TWO-EDGED SWORD AND

THEY HAVE A LOT OF BLOOD ON

THEIR HANDS.

John: PAT, HERE IN

WASHINGTON, THE FIRST DAY OF

THE NEW CONGRESS BROUGHT THE

FIRST CLASH BETWEEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE

REPUBLICAN LEADERS.

IT CAME MOMENTS AFTER THE

REPUBLICANS TOOK CONTROL OF

THE SENATE.

THE WHITE HOUSE IMMEDIATELY

VOTED TO VETO THEIR FIRST

BILL REGARDING THE KEYSTONE

X.L. PIPELINE.

ANOTHER PRIORITY FOR THE

G.O.P., SCALING BACK

OBAMACARE.

REPUBLICANS WANT TO CHANGE

THE LAW'S DEFINITION OF A

WORK WEEK, BUMPING IT FROM

40 HOURS TO 30 HOURS.

THAT'S BECAUSE SO MANY

EMPLOYERS HAVE WORKE HAVE

SLASHED WORKER HOURS TO

AVOID PAYING.

LOOK, I WAS ELECTED BY MY

DISTRICT TO MAKE SURE WE GET

THE DECISION-MAKING BACK IN

THEIR HANDS, AND I SAID I

WAS GOING TO DO EVERYTHING I

CAN TO REPEAL AND REPLACE IT

WITH SOMETHING THAT IS

FUNCTIONAL, AND GET WITH

BROAD MARKET HEALTH CARE

REFORMS, AND THAT'S EXACTLY

WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

John: PRESIDENT OBAMA

HAS VOWED TO BLOCK ANY

ATTEMPT TO REPEAL HIS

SIGNATURE HEALTH CARE ACT.

Pat: THE REPUBLICANS

ARE DOING IT JUST THE WAY

THEY SHOULD.

THEY'RE TAKING INCREMENTAL

STEPS, AND FINDING THE AREAS

UNPOPULAR WITH THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, AND THEY'RE SAYING,

LET'S CHANGE THESE.

AND EVERY TIME OBAMA VETOES

THAT, HE IS GOING TO DIG

HIMSELF DEEPER AND DEEPER IN

THE WHOLE.

THEY HAVE MISSTATED THE

EFFECTS OF THE KEYSTONE X.L.

PIPELINE.

THEY HAVE MISSTATED THE

ECONOMIC BENEFITS, THE

NUMBER OF PEOPLE EMPLOYED,

AND THE OVERALL IMPACT IN

TERMS OF ENERGY SECURITY.

IT IS A NO-BRAINER, AND IT

HAS BEEN CLEARED BY THE

STATE DEPARTMENT, AND

CLEARED OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

AND OBAMA IS CATERING TO A

SMALL CODERY OF RADICAL

ENVIRONMENTALISTS, AND NOW

WITHOUT QUESTION THERE IS A

VETO-PROOF MAJORITY IN THE

SENATE AND THE HOUSE TO GET

THIS THING THROUGH.

AND I THINK JAM IT AT HIM,

THAT'S THE WAY TO DO IT.

John: FORMER VIRGINIA

GOVERNOR BOB McDONALD IS

FACING A TWO-YEAR PRISON

SENTENCE, FAR LESS THAN THE

10-YEAR SENTENCE PROSECUTORS

HAD BEEN SEEKING.

HE WAS FOUND GUILTY ON 11

COUNTS OF PUBLIC

CORRUPTION.

AFTER THE SENTENCE WAS

HANDED DOWN, McDONALD

APOLOGIZED FOR HIS MISTAKES,

BUT SAID HE DID NOT VIOLATE

HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND WILL

CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR HIS

INNOCENCE.

I HAVE IMMENSE FAITH IN

THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT I

HAVE TREMENDOUS FAITH AND

TRUST IN THE PROVIDENCE OF

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND

HIS ABILITY TO MEET OUT

JUSTICE.

AND SO THAT IS MY HOPE FOR

ULTIMATE VINDICATION.

John: PAT, IN ADDITION

TO THE PRISON TIME,

McDONALD WILL SERVE TWO

YEARS OF PROBATION.

HIS WIFE WAS CONVICTED ON

EIGHT COUNTS OF CORRUPTION,

AND, PAT, SHE WILL BE

SENTENCED FEBRUARY 20th.

Pat: I HAVEN'T HAD A

CHANCE TO TALK AT LENGTH IN

THIS PROGRAM ABOUT WHAT IS

GOING ON BECAUSE HE WAS IN

TRIAL AND I DIDN'T WANT TO

GET IN THE WAY.

IN VIRGINIA, THERE IS NO LAW

AGAINST A PUBLIC OFFICIAL

RECEIVING GIFTS FROM A

SUPPORTER, NO LAW

WHATSOEVER, SO LONG AS THOSE

GIFTS ARE DISCLOSED ON

VARIOUS FORMS THAT ARE MADE

AVAILABLE TO THEM.

NO LAW AGAINST IT.

NOTHING WRONG.

NO LAW.

NOW, IF ON THE OTHE, ON THE

OTHER HAND, THE OFFICIAL IS

BRIBED AND GIVES FAVORS,

THAT IS SOMETHING ELSE.

BUT THE ONLY THING THEY

COULD GO AGAINST BOB

McDONALD FOR WAS THAT HE

USED HIS OFFICE -- HIS

OFFICE -- TO ASSIST A LOCAL

BUSINESSMAN WHO ALSO ALONG

THE WAY GAVE SOME GIFTS AND

LOANS.

WELL, HE DIDN'T GIVE HIM ANY

OFFICE.

HE DIDN'T APPOINT HIM TO ANY

COMMISSION.

THERE WAS NO FEDERAL OR

STATE FUNDS THAT WENT INTO

THIS MAN'S HANDS.

NOTHING WHATSOEVER.

AND YET IN THIS CONTRIVED

SYSTEM -- BECAUSE HERE IS

THE DEAL: BOB McDONALD WAS

A POTENTIAL CANDIDATE FOR

THE UNITED STATES SENATE.

IT TURNED OUT THAT HE

PROBABLY WOULD HAVE WON IN

THIS LAST ELECTION BECAUSE

HE WAS SO WELL-KNOWN.

FROM THERE HE WAS A

POTENTIAL -- I DON'T THINK

THEY SAY PRESIDENTIAL, BUT A

POTENTIAL VICE PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE.

AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

DECIDED TO GO AFTER HIM.

AND IT WAS JUST TERRIBLE.

SURE, HE MADE MISTAKES.

HE IS LIKE ADAM.

YOU KNOW, EVE WAS THE ONE

WHO GOT SEDUCED BY THE

SNAKE, BUT ADAM ATE THE

FRUIT.

I THINK BOB McDONALD

GOT -- HIS WIFE WAS INTO

THIS ANABLOCK THING THAT

SUPPOSEDLY WOULD BE A

CURE-ALL FROM USING

TOBACCO.

THE MAN WHO TESTIFIED

AGAINST THEM, HOWEVER, WAS

UNDER OBSERVATION FOR

SECURITIES FRAUD.

AND HE WAS GIVEN BLANKET

IMMUNITY FROM EVERYTHING.

SO THEY SAID, YOU TESTIFY

AGAINST THIS SITTING

REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR AND WE

WILL GIVE YOU A BLANK SLATE

AGAINST ANYTHING YOU'VE

DONE, WHETHER IT IS

SECURITIES OR WHATEVER IT IS

THAT YOU MAY HAVE DONE

WRONG, YOU HAVE A BLANKET

IMMUNITY.

AND YET HE WAS THE PRINCIPLE

WITNESS AGAINST BOB

McDONALD.

BUT NOW WE UNDERSTAND THAT

HE IS GOING TO APPEAL.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS,

CONSIDERING WHAT THEY WERE

LOOKING AT, THEY WERE

TALKING ABOUT 10 YEARS.

THE FACT THAT HE GOT TWO

YEARS -- THE JUDGE SAID,

LOOK, THERE IS NO WAY I CAN

ACCESS A SENTENCE OF THAT

MAGNITUDE IN RELATION TO

WHAT HE HAS DONE.

BUT IT IS QUESTIONABLE.

GIVEN THE FACT IT WAS THE

HOBBS ACT, A FEDERAL ACT,

THEY PROSECUTED HIM UNDER,

AND A TENUOUS UNDERSTANDING

OF THE HOBBS ACT.

BUT IN TERMS OF VIRGINIA

LAW, THERE IS NO LAW BROKEN

THAT I AM AWARE OF.

JOHN?

John: PAT, MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS FACE RECORD

SNOWFALLS AND RECORD LOW

TEMPERATURES WITH DANGEROUS

WINDCHILLS TODAY.

THE WEATHER IS CLOSING

SCHOOLS FROM MINNEAPOLIS TO

THE DAKOTAS.

WITH ARCTIC AIR EVEN IN THE

DEEP SOUTH.

MARK MARTIN HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: MORE THAN

HALF THE COUNTRY FINDS

ITSELF IN SNOW AND LOCKED IN

A DEEP FREEZE TODAYMENT.

WHEN I WAKE UP IT IS

SNOWING AND GO TO SLEEP IT

IS SNOWING.

Reporter: LAW

ENFORCEMENT EVEN SHUT DOWN

AN INTERSTATE IN CENTRAL

INDIANA BECAUSE OF SO MANY

ACCIDENTS.

IN MINNESOTA, STALLED,

SPUN-OUT CARS CRASHED INTO

MEDIANS AND SHOULDERS.

AT OUR NATION'S CAPITAL,

THERE WAS ALMOST A WHITEOUT

AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

THE BUS NEVER SHOWED UP

BECAUSE WE'RE AT THE TOP OF

THE HILL.

Reporter: DOZENS OF

SCHOOL DISTRICTS ACROSS THE

MIDWEST ARE CLOSED BECAUSE

OF THE DANGEROUS

TEMPERATURES.

WITH WINDCHILLS EXPECTED TO

PLUNGE AS LOW AT 50 BELOW

ZERO IN SOME AREAS.

THE NORTH STAR GUIDES US

FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF

THE CHILDREN.

Reporter: THOSE THAT DO

HAVE TO VENTURE OUTSIDE PILE

ON THE LAYERS.

MY FINGERS WERE FROZEN

AFTER THE FIRST FIVE

MINUTES.

Reporter: IN FARGO,

NORTH DAKOTA, CONSTRUCTION

WORKERS ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

SWEATING.

FOR ME, IT IS SWEATING

THAT IS THE ISSUE.

Reporter: IT IS SO COLD

IN SOME AREAS, THE ROAD SALT

IS HAVING NO EFFECT ON THE

ICY HIGHWAYS.

IN CHICAGO, THEY'VE USED

FIRE TO WARM UP TRAIN

TRACKS.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

John: AND, PAT, I KNOW

YOU HAVE IT MADE THERE IN

VIRGINIA BEACH.

Pat: OF COURSE WE HAVE

IT MADE.

IT IS WARM AND TOASTY.

IT IS GOING TO BE, I THINK,

16° TOMORROW, OR SOMETHING,

IN THE MORNING.

Wendy: IT IS NOT LIKE

WE'RE LIVING IN THE TROPICS

DOWN HERE.

I HAVE MY DOWN COAT ON THIS

MORNING.

Pat: IT'S LOVELY.

EVERYBODY SHOULD MOVE TO

VIRGINIA BEACH.

Wendy: IT WAS -40°

WINDCHILL IN THE DAKOTAS.

Pat: IT'S COLD.

Wendy: HAVE YOU EVER

EXPERIENCED -40°?

I DON'T THINK I HAVE.

Pat: I'VE EXPERIENCED

-25°.

I THINK IT WAS IN SPIRIT

LAKE, IOWA, AND I WAS

CAMPAIGNING UP THERE, AND I

THINK IT WAS -40° OR -50

WITH THE WINDCHILL.

YOU DON'T NOTICE IT.

IT'S DRY.

BUT YOU GO OUT THERE FOR

ABOUT 10 MINUTES, AND THE

NEXT THING YOU KNOW, THE

TISSUE OF YOUR FACE HAS

TURNED TO ICE.

Wendy: RIGHT.

Pat: AND YOU'RE IN

SERIOUS TROUBLE.

BUT, HEY, LISTEN, YOU HAVE

OUR SINCERE BEST WISHES.

I HOPE YOU ALL STAY WARM.

AND PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND BE

HEALTHY.

BUT ALSO COME TO VIRGINIA

BEACH.

IT IS LOVELY, AND WE'D LOVE

TO HAVE YOU HERE.

YOU'RE ALWAYS WELCOME.

AS THEY SAY IN THE SOUTH,

Y'ALL COME, HEAR?

John: TURNING TO HEALTH

NEWS, SIX AMERICANS DIE

EVERY DAY FROM DRINKING TOO

MUCH ALCOHOL.

AND TO THE SURPRISE OF

HEALTH OFFICIALS, MOST OF

THE DEATHS INVOLVE

MIDDLE-AGED ADULTS, NOT

TEENS OR COLLEGE KIDS.

THE REPORT FROM THE CENTERS

FOR DISEASE CONTROL FOUND

THAT THREE-QUARTERS OF THE

DEATHS CAME FROM ADULTS

BETWEEN 35 AND 65 YEARS

OLD.

PEOPLE DIED AFTER A SINGLE

EPISODE OF BINGE DRINKING.

IT CAN SHUT DOWN AREAS OF

THE BRAIN THAT CONTROL

BREATHING, HEART RATE, AND

BODY TEMPERATURE.

I THINK THAT COMES AS A

SURPRISE TO MOST.

Pat: IT SHOULD.

THEY TALK ABOUT MARIJUANA

BEING SO EVIL, AND THEY'VE

GOT TO PUT PEOPLE IN JAIL

FOR SMOKING IT OR POSSESSING

IT, BUT, I'LL TELL YOU,

ALCOHOL IS A DRUG THAT IS

MUCH MORE PERVASIVE AND IT

DOES TERRIBLE THINGS TO

PEOPLE.

HERE IS MISS HEALTHY

HERSELF, WENDY GRIFFITH.

TELL US ABOUT IT.

LOOK AT THAT.

Wendy: UP NEXT, YOU

EXERCISE, RIGHT?

YOU EAT RIGHT?

BUT YOU STILL MAY BE LEAVING

YOUR BODY VULNERABLE TO

SICKNESS.

WE SEE IT ASSOCIATED WITH

CANCERS, WE SEE IT

ASSOCIATED WITH FALLS IN THE

ELDERLY, AND WE CAN SEE IT

ASSOCIATED WITH SOME

INFECTIONS AND ISSUES OF THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Wendy: HEAR HOW TO

PROTECT YOUR HEALTH, NEXT.

Wendy: WELL, STOP BY A

DRUGSTORE, AND YOU'LL SEE

PILLS AND SUPPLEMENTS FROM

"A" TO ZINC.

THE VITAMIN INDUSTRY IS ONE

OF THE FASTEST GROWING IN

THE WORLD, AND IT IS EASY TO

SEE WHY.

WE JUST AREN'T GETTING

ENOUGH OF THE NUTRIENTS THAT

WE NEED.

GORDON HAS MORE IN THE NEXT

INSTALLMENT OF OUR SERIES,

"PROTECT YOUR HEALTH."

Gordon: OUT OF EVERY 10

PEOPLE YOU SEE WALKING DOWN

THE STREET, NINE OF THEM

LACK AT LEAST ONE CRITICAL

VITAMIN OR MINERAL NECESSARY

FOR GOOD HEALTH.

YOU MAY THINK YOU HAVE A

HEALTHY LIFESTYLE, BUT EVEN

WITH THE BEST DIET, YOU

STILL MAY NOT BE GIVING YOUR

BODY EVERYTHING IT NEEDS.

THAT'S WHERE SUPPLEMENTS

COME IN.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO CHOOSE

SUPPLEMENTS THAT ABSORB

RAPIDLY, SUCH AS LIQUIDS OR

POWDERS.

TOO OFTEN TABLETS DON'T

BREAK DOWN FAST ENOUGH AND

END UP GOING DOWN THE

DRAIN.

WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING

SUPPLEMENTS, VITAMIN "D" IS

A GOOD PLACE TO START.

IT IS VITAL TO A HEALTHY

IMMUNE SYSTEM, AND A

STAGGERING THREE-FOURTHS OF

AMERICANS AREN'T GETTING

ENOUGH OF IT.

VITAMIN "D" IS

IMPORTANT.

WE SEE IT ASSOCIATED WITH

CANCERS, WE SEE IT

ASSOCIATED WITH FALLS IN THE

ELDERLY, WE SEE IT

ASSOCIATED WITH MANY

SYMPTOMS, ACHYNESS AND MOOD

ISSUES, AND ALSO WITH SOME

INFECTIONS AND ISSUES OF THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM.

Gordon: YOUR BODY

CREATES VITAMIN "D"

NATURALLY, WHEN YOU'RE

EXPOSED TO SUNLIGHT.

MOST OF US NEED A VITAMIN

"D" SUPPLEMENT BECAUSE WE

DON'T SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN

THE SUN.

AND WHEN WE DO GO OUT, WE

WEAR SUNSCREEN, WHICH BLOCKS

THE ABSORPTION OF VITAMIN

"D."

NEXT, CONSIDER A

MULTI-VITAMIN SUPPLEMENT.

IT IS THAT SAFETY

MECHANISM THAT COULD SUPPORT

YOUR OVERALL HEALTH IN

GENERAL.

Gordon: FRESH FRUITS

AND VEGETABLES AREN'T AS

HEALTHY AS THEY USED TO BE.

APPLES CONTAIN 77% FEWER

MINERALS THAN THEY DID YEARS

AGO.

OVERFARMING HAS ROBBED THE

SOIL OF THE NUTRIENTS

NECESSARY TO GROW VITAMINS

AND MINERAL-RICH PRODUCE.

WE WORRY WHEN FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES TRAVEL LONG

DISTANCES THAT THEIR HEALTH

BENEFITS ARE REALLY

COMPROMISED.

Gordon: CHOOSE A

MULTI-VITAMIN THAT CONTAINS

100% OF THE RECOMMENDED

DAILY ALLOWANCE OF A WIDE

VARIETY OF VITAMINS AND

MINERALS, AND PAY ATTENTION

TO WHAT IS NOT IN THE

VITAMINS.

NO ADDED COLORS AND

CHEMICALS, AND ISLANDLY

IDEALLY NO ADDED SUGARS.

Gordon: SOME HERBAL

SUPPLEMENTS CAN ALSO HELP

YOU FIGHT OFF ILLNESS.

THERE IS SCIENTIFIC

EVIDENCE FOR GINSENG,

PARTICULARLY FOR FIGHTING

COLDS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE OPT TO TAKE

THAT IN FLU SEASON.

Gordon: ECHINACEA CAN

INCREASE THE NUMBER OF WHITE

BLOOD CELLS WHICH KILL COLD

AND FLU BUGS.

THIS IS VERY POPULAR.

PEOPLE WHO ARE INTERESTED,

SHOULD TAKE 100 MILLIGRAMS

THREE TIMES A DAY.

AND THEY NEED TO START IT

EARLY IF THEY WANT IT TO BE

EFFECTIVE.

Gordon: A FISH OIL

SUPPLEMENT IN LIQUID OR

CAPSULE FORM IS ALSO A GOOD

IDEA BECAUSE FISH OIL

CONTAINS OMEGA-3 FATTY

ACIDS, WHICH BOOST YOUR

IMMUNE SYSTEM.

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS ARE

SOMETHING WE ALSO DEPLETED

IN OUR DIET.

WE USED TO GET THEM WHEN WE

WOULD EAT A LOT OF FISH OR A

LOT OF PA PASTURE-RAISED

CATTLE.

Gordon: FISH OW OIL IS

MADE UP OF E.P.A. AND

D.H.A.

TRY TO TAKE ABOUT ONE GRAM

OF E.P.A. DAILY.

ANOTHER POWERFUL IMMUNE

SYSTEM BOOSTER IS COCONUT

OIL.

TAKE A TABLESPOON OR TWO A

DAY AND COOK WITH IT.

LAB TESTS REVEAL IT DESTROYS

FLU VIRUS, AND BACTERIA THAT

CAUSE INFECTIONS, AND EVEN

PARASITES THAT LEAD TO

STOMACH PROBLEMS.

SPEAKING OF THE GUT, DID YOU

KNOW THAT 70% OF YOUR

IMMUNETOMY IS IN YOUR

INTESTINES?

THAT'S HOME TO MOST OF THE

GOOD BACTERIA THAT DESTROYS

OUTSIDE INVADERS INTENT ON

MAKING YOU SICK.

SO THE ISSUE WITH

BACTERIA IN OUR BODY IS VERY

COMPLICATED.

WE'RE JUST COMING TO LEARN

HOW IMPORTANT IT IS THAT WE

HAVE THESE HEALTHY BACTERIA,

AND THAT WE SET UP THE

ENVIRONMENT IN OUR BODY TO

ALLOW THOSE HEALTHY BACTERIA

TO GROW AND TO FLOURISH.

Gordon: THE PROBLEM IS

THAT GOOD BACTERIA CAN BE

KILLED BY ANTIBIOTICS.

ANTIBACTERIAL SOAPS AND

PROCESSED FOODS.

YOU CAN FIX THAT BY EATING

FERMENTED FOODS THAT ARE

NATURALLY RICH IN

PROBIOTICS, LIKE KIMCHI AND

YOGURT.

TAKING A PROBIOTIC

SUPPLEMENT IS THE NEXT BEST

THING TO RESTORE GOOD

BACTERIA TO OUR INTESTINES.

ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO WARD

OFF ILLNESS IS VITAMIN "C."

I THINK 1,000 MILLIGRAMS

IS A SAFE DOSE THAT IS NOT

TOO HIGH, AND I DON'T THINK

THERE IS ANY REASON TO TAKE

VITAMIN "C" DAILY OVER 2,000

MILLIGRAMS.

Gordon: SO CONSIDER

SUPPLEMENTS TO STRENGTHEN

YOUR IN MUSEUM SYSTEM:

VITAMIN "D," VITAMIN "C," A

STRONG MULTIPLE VITAMIN,

HERBS, FISH OIL, COCONUT

OIL, AND PROBIOTICS.

IN A PERFECT WORLD, WE WOULD

GET THEM NATURALLY.

FOR OUR LESS THAN PERFECT

LIFESTYLES, THEY'RE A GOOD

SAFETY NET.

Pat: NICE.

DO YOU TAKE ALL OF THAT

STUFF?

Wendy: I DO.

I KNOW YOU TOOK YOUR FISH

OIL TODAY.

Pat: EVERY DAY.

Wendy: I FORGOT TO TAKE

MY FISH OIL TODAY.

Pat: I TAKE A TEASPOON

A DAY.

Wendy: VITAMIN "C"

CURES EVERYTHING.

Pat: AND VITAMIN "D."

"D" IS THE MOST

UNDERAPPRECIATED VITAMIN.

THEY FIND IN THE NORTHERN

CLIMATES, THERE IS A HIGHER

INCIDENCE OF FLU AND COLDS

BECAUSE THEY DON'T GET OUT

IN THE SUN.

Wendy: WE'RE JUST

FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT

VITAMIN "D,",.

Pat: IF YOU WATCHED

"THE 700 CLUB," YOU KNEW FOR

A FEW YEARS.

Pat: I'M NOT A FAN OF

ECHINACEA OR GING SENG.

GINSENG.

I WAS OUT WALKING AND I CAME

ACROSS THIS GINSENG ROOT,

AND I TOOK IT TO CHINA AND

GAVE IT TO THE PRIME

MINISTER, AND IT IS

OUTSTANDING.

THOSE PEOPLE LOVE IT.

AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR

HEALTH AND STRENGTH.

HERE IS SOME NATIVE AMERICAN

GINSENG.

Wendy: ALL THIS WEEK ON

"THE 700 CLUB," WE'LL BE

SHOWING YOU MORE WAYS TO

PROTECT YOUR HEALTH AND

BUILD A STRONG IMMUNE

SYSTEM.

AND WE'LL ALSO SEND YOU THIS

FREE D.V.D. CALLED "PROTECT

YOUR HEALTH."

JUST CALL US,

1-800-759-0700, OR GO TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

STILL AHEAD, A BIKER WHO

TRIED TO SAVE A CAT AND

ALMOST LOST THE USE OF HER

ARM.

HE SAID, YOUR TENDONS AND

LIGAMENTS ARE NOT CONNECTED

ANYMORE.

Wendy: HEAR HOW THEY

WERE SUPERNATURALLY KNITTED

BACK TOGETHER, NEXT.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

THE NEW

REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED

CONGRESS IS WASTING NO TIME

TO A ADVANCE THE G.O.P.

PRO-LIFE STANCE.

NOW WITH A CHANGE IN

LEADERSHIP, TWO HOUSE

LAWMAKERS HAVE REINTRODUCED

THE BILL.

IT WOULD BAN ABORTIONS AFTER

THE FIRST 20 WEEKS OF

PREGNANCY.

CONGRESSMAN TRENT FRANKS,

ONE OF THE BILL'S SPONSOR,

SAYS, THESE ARE INNOCENT,

DEFENSELESS CHILDREN, WHO

CANNOT ONLY FEEL PAIN, BUT

ARE TORTUR TOR ARE TORCHED

AND KILLED.

ABOUT 50% OF THE HOUSE AND

SENATE IS PROTESTANT AND 31%

ARE CATHOLIC.

THERE IS HIGHER PERCENTAGE

OF PROTESTANTS AND CATHOLICS

IN CONGRESS THAN IN THE

OVERALL U.S. POPULATION.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: HAVE YOU EVER HAD

SOMETHING THAT TEARS YOU UP,

IT HURTS SO BAD.

IT JUST HURTS AND HURTS.

AND YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH IT.

FOR YEARS DIANA SELLERS WAS

THAT WAY.

SHE ENDURED PAIN.

WELL, IT STARTED WHEN SHE

CRASHED HER MOTORCYCLE, AND

AS I UNDERSTAND, SHE TRIED

TO PICK UP A CAT WHILE ON A

MOTORCYCLE.

NO WONDER SHE TORE THE

ROTATOR CUFF.

AFTER SURGERY AND PHYSICAL

THERAPY, THE PAIN WAS STILL

THERE.

UNTIL ONE DAY DIANA WATCHED

A PROGRAM ON TELEVISION

CALLED "THE 700 CLUB."

Reporter: DIANA

SELLERS' DAY BEGAN LIKE ANY

OTHER.

SHE WOKE UP EARLY, HOPPED ON

HER MOTORCYCLE AND HEADED TO

THE GYM.

THEN ON THE WAY, A CAT RAN

IN FRONT OF HER, AND DIANA

HIT THE BRAKES.

IT WAS A STOP AND DROP.

YOU DROP YOUR BIKE SLOWLY.

THE NEXT THING I KNOW IS

WE'RE LAYING ON THE

PAVEMENT.

Reporter: NEITHER WERE

HURT, BUT NOW DIANA HAD TO

GET HER BIKE UP.

I THOUGHT, I'VE PICKED IT

UP BEFORE.

600 PLUS POUNDS, I CAN DO

THIS.

I WAS LIFTING THE MOTORCYCLE

UP, AND I FELT IN MY LEFT

SHOULDER, A BURNING

SENSATION.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS ODD.

Reporter: SHE MADE IT

TO THE GYM, BUT COULDN'T DO

HER NORMAL WORKOUT.

SO SHE WENT TO THE DOCTOR,

WHO TOLD DIANA HER LEFT

SHOULDER HAD A TORN ROTATOR

CUFF AND WOULD NEED

SURGERY.

HE SAID, YOUR TENDONS AND

LIGAMENTS AREN'T CONNECTED

ANYMORE.

IT IS JUST LIKE HERCULES

TAKING THEM AND BREAKING

THEM.

ALL OF THE STRANDS ARE

SHOT.

Reporter: THERE WAS

ALSO A SLIGHT TEAR IN THE

RIGHT SHOULDER THAT WOULD

ONLY REQUIRE PHYSICAL

THERAPY.

BUT AFTER DIANA WENT THROUGH

SURGERY AND FILL CUL

PHYSICAL THERAPY, THE PAIN

CONTINUED.

I COULD DO EVERYTHING IN

THE KITCHEN, LIFTING

COOKWARE, BUT AFTER THAT, I

COULDN'T DO IT.

I HAD TO GET A STOOL TO PUT

THINGS AWAY.

Reporter: THE PAIN

CONTINUED FOR TWO MORE

YEARS.

THEN ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" WHEN

GORDON WAS PRAYING FOR

VIEWERS.

I LIKE LISTENING TO THE

PRAYERS BECAUSE I LIKE TO

PRAY FOR PEOPLE.

SO I'M PRAYING FOR PEOPLE

THAT TERRY AND GORDON WERE

TALKING ABOUT.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

I HEAR THE WORD, "ROTATOR

CUFF," AND I WAS, LIKE,

WHAT?

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER, A ROTATOR CUFF,

AND TENDONS THAT WERE

DESTROYED IN THE ACCIDENT.

AND GOD IS ABLE TO GROW

TENDONS FOR YOU AND RESTORE

MOVEMENT.

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY IS

IMPOSSIBLE, IS POSSIBLE WITH

GOD.

I SAID, PLEASE, LORD, LET

THAT BE ME.

I'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR A

COUPLE OF YEARS.

AND I RAN OUT THERE TO OUR

WEIGHT ROOM, AND WE HAVE A

45-POUND BARBELL.

I TOOK THAT THING AND LIFTED

IT UP OVER MY HEAD, AND

THERE WAS NO PAIN.

AND AS SOON AS I WAS ABLE TO

DO THAT, I DROPPED TO MY

KNEES AND I THANKED HIM.

I WAS, LIKE, YES!

Reporter: DIANA SAYS

THE HEALING GAVE HER A NEW

PERSPECTIVE ON GOD.

IT JUST PUT ME CLOSER TO

HIM.

LIKE ANYTHING AND

EVERYTHING, YOU JUST WANT TO

SHOW HIS GOODNESS TO

EVERYBODY YOU MEET.

Pat: YOU KNOW, GORDON

DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT DIANA.

HE DIDN'T KNOW HER HER

ROTATOR CUFF WAS DAMAGED.

HE DOESN'T KNOW ANY OF THOSE

THINGS.

BUT GOD KNEW.

AND GOD KNOWS YOU.

HE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE.

HE KNOWS WHERE YOU ARE.

AND HE KNOWS EVERYTHING

ABOUT YOUR LIFE.

FROM TIME TO TIME, HE IS

GOOD ENOUGH TO SHOW US ON

THIS PROGRAM THINGS YOU HAVE

THAT WILL HELP YOU.

WHETHER WE HAVE A WORD OR

NOT, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO ASK THE

GRACIOUS HEAVENLY FATHER,

WHO IS THE AUTHOR OF

MIRACLES, TO DO A MIRACLE

FOR YOU.

THERE IS NO REASON -- BEFORE

WE PRAY, KEEP THIS IN MIND:

JESUS NEVER, EVER TURNED

ANYBODY DOWN WHO CAME TO HIM

FOR HEALING.

SOMETIMES HE WOULD MAKE THEM

WAIT A LITTLE BIT AND TEST

THEIR FAITH, BUT NEVER DID

HE SAY NO.

HE HEALED EVERYBODY WHO CAME

TO HIM, EVERYBODY.

HE IS THE GREAT PHYSICIAN.

NOW, WENDY AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY TOGETHER AND BELIEVE

GOD FOR YOU.

WHAT IS YOUR NEED?

LET'S BRING IT TO THE LORD

AND LET'S SEE MIRACLES.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: FATHER, I JOIN

HANDS WITH MY SISTER IN

CHRIST.

AND WE COME BEFORE YOU WITH

THE NEEDS OF THE PEOPLE IN

THIS AUDIENCE.

WE ASK, LORD, THAT YOU MIGHT

HEAL THEIR BODIES, HEAL

THEIR MINDS, HEAL THEIR

SPIRITS, HEAL THEIR FINANCES

AND THEIR FAMILIES, IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

SOMEBODY HAS A THROAT

CONDITION.

THE LORD IS HEALING IT RIGHT

NOW.

A NUMBER OF YOU, YOU'VE GOT

THIS PROBLEM RIGHT NOW.

PUT YOUR HAND ON YOUR

THROAT.

THE LORD IS JUST HEALING

STREP THROAT, SORE THROAT,

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

HEALED.

WENDY?

Wendy: IT IS THE

BEGINNING OF A NEW YEAR, AND

MANY PEOPLE ARE SAYING,

WHAT'S NEW?

WHAT'S GOING TO CHANGE?

YOU'RE ASKING GOD FOR HOPE.

YOU'RE PHYSICALLY FINE, BUT

YOU NEED HOPE.

GOD IS ANYWAY, I AM THE GOD

OF HOPE.

LOOK UP, LOOK TO ME.

I HAVE SOMETHING NEW FOR

YOU.

REACH UP AND GRAB THAT IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: A NEW CONGRESS

JUST CAME INTO BEING.

THEY WERE OFFICIALLY SWORN

IN YESTERDAY, AND WE PRAYED

PRAY NOW FOR THESE MEN AND

WOMEN THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE

WISDOM, THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE

COURAGE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT

HAVE THE DIRECTION FROM THE

LORD GOD HIMSELF.

TOUCH THEM AND TOUCH THIS

NATION, WE PRAY, LORD.

WE ASK AND WE HOLD IT BEFORE

YOU.

AND WE PRAISE YOU FOR THE

ANSWER.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

WENDY, GOD IS GIVING YOU

SOMETHING.

Wendy: FEAR -- YOU

KNOW, WITH ALL OF THE

REPORTS OF WHAT IS HAPPENING

AROUND THE WORLD WITH ISIS,

AND THERE ARE A LOT OF

PEOPLE JUST GRIPPED WITH

FEAR THAT IT COULD COME TO

AMERICA.

AND THE LORD IS JUST WANTING

TO GIVE YOU PEACE RIGHT

NOW.

JUST FEEL HIS PEACE.

HE IS THE GOD OF PEACE.

AND DO NOT FEAR, IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: THERE IS A WOMAN

NAMED MELANIE, AND YOU HAVE

A WEAKNESS IN YOUR SIDE AND

LEG.

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT

CAUSES YOU TO LIMP, BUT

THERE IS A WEAKNESS.

AND RIGHT NOW YOU'LL FEEL

LIKE A BOLT OF ELECTRICITY

GOING THROUGH YOUR BODY.

AND YOUR STRENTHENED AND

MADE WHOLE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

NOW, THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

WE'RE HERE TOGETHER, AND WE

PRAISE YOU FOR THE ANSWERS

TO THE PRAYER OF PEOPLE IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: WHEREVER YOU ARE,

LET US HEAR FROM YOU.

WE WANT TO HEAR THE ANSWERS,

BUT WE ALSO ARE GLAD TO PRAY

FOR YOU.

OUR PEOPLE ARE THERE 24

HOURS A DAY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK

UP THE PHONE.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

1-800-759-0700.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

REBECCA ASKS, "HOW CAN A

CHRISTIAN OVERCOME BAD

DREAMS?"

HEAR PAT TAKE ON THAT AND

MUCH MORE WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

IN CHINA, A WIDOW AND HER

SON LIVED IN AN OLD HOUSE

WITH A LEAKY ROOF.

HER SON WAS ALWAYS SICK.

SO SHE PRAYED TO GOD FOR

HELP.

AND CBN DELIVERED THE ANSWER

TO HER PRAYERS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Terry: AFTER HER

HUSBAND DIED OF CANCER,

MRS. ANN WAS LEFT TO RAISE

HER SON ALL ALONE.

SHE JUST WANTED HIM TO BE

HEALTHY AND LIVE IN A DECENT

HOME.

BUT ALL THEY HAD WAS A VERY

OLD HOUSE, AND YONG WAS

ALWAYS SICK.

OUR HOUSE WAS DARK AND

COLD.

IN THE WINTER, THE RAIN

LEAKED IN THROUGH THE ROOF.

AND OUR BLANKETS AND PAJAMAS

ALWAYS GOT WET.

MY HANDS AND FEET FROZE AND

TURNED PURPLE.

Terry: IT MADE IT HARD

FOR YONG TO SLEEP.

YONG WOKE UP, SHAKING

SEVERAL TIMES A NIGHT.

AND HE HAD FEVERS A LOT.

I WAS VERY WORRIED BECAUSE

HE WAS SO THIN.

HE NEEDED REST SO HE COULD

GROW.

I JUST HELD HIM AND TRIED TO

COMFORT HIM.

Terry: YONG'S PARENTS

HAD TALKED ABOUT BUILDING A

NEW HOME BEFORE MR. ANN

DIED, BUT NOW ON ONE INCOME,

MRS. ANN COULD BARELY AFFORD

MINOR REPAIRS.

I AM ILLITERATE, SO

FINDING WORK IS HARD.

I WAS LIVING ON $31 A YEAR

FROM OUR CORN HARVEST.

I DIDN'T WANT MY MOM TO

CRY AND HAVE TO WORK SO HARD

ANYMORE.

I WANTED THE LEAKING AND THE

COLD TO JUST STOP.

Terry: MRS. ANN IS A

CHRISTIAN, SO SHE PRAYED TO

GOD FOR HELP.

AND THEN CBN SHOWED UP.

SOMEONE FROM CBN CAME TO

OUR VILLAGE AND PROMISED TO

BUILD A NEW HOUSE FOR MY SON

AND ME.

I JUMPED AS HIGH AS I

COULD AND SHOUTED FOR JOY.

Terry: SOON THE ANN'S

NEW TWO-STORY HOME WAS READY

FOR THEM TO MOVE IN, FULLY

EQUIPPED WITH A HEATER.

NOW I CAN SLEEP THROUGH

THE NIGHT.

I DREAMED OF RUNNING AND

LAUGHING.

NOW THAT YONG CAN SLEEP,

HE HAS ENERGY DURING THE DAY

AND IS GROWING STRONG.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING

US WHEN WE LOST EVERYTHING.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO

THE LORD AND BEING HIS HANDS

AND FEET.

Terry: THEY HAD LOST

EVERYTHING.

BUT THEY DIDN'T LOSE HOPE,

AND CBN CAME AND ANSWERED

THEIR PRAYERS, AND NOW THAT

YOUNG BOY YOU JUST SAW IS

JUMPING FOR JOY.

HE IS SO HAPPY TO BE WARM.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

LIKE THAT.

IT IS SO EASY.

IT IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW

YEAR, AND WHY NOT START

TODAY.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND SAY,

YES, I WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF

OTHERS.

IT IS ONLY 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH TO JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR SCREEN

RIGHT THERE, OR YOU CAN LOG

ON TO CBN.COM.

IF YOU SIGN UP WITH PLEDGE

EXPRESS, WE HAVE "POWER FOR

LIFE" FOR YOU.

THESE ARE AWESOME TEACHINGS

BY PAT AND GORDON THAT WILL

ENCOURAGE YOU.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW

POWERFUL THE WORD OF GOD IS,

AND WE WANT TO BLESS YOU

WITH THIS WHEN YOU GIVE US A

CALL.

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS.

Pat: IT IS TIME FOR

"BRING IT ON."

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

REBECCA SAYS, "HOW CAN A

CHRISTIAN OVERCOME BAD

DREAMS?"

THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

Pat: I THINK MOST

DREAMS COME ABOUT BECAUSE OF

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING AT,

THINKING ABOUT, THAT YOUR

UNCONSCIOUS GIVING VOICE

WHILE YOU'RE ASLEEP.

FOCUS ON THE WORD.

IF YOU'VE BEEN READING A

NOVEL OR WATCHING SOME

TELEVISION DRAMA, THAT WILL

COME BACK TO YOU.

I THINK -- HOW CAN YOU

OVERCOME IT?

FOCUS ON THE LORD.

AND BEFORE YOU GO TO BED,

READ IN THE WORD AND THEN

BEGIN TO PRAISE GOD AND LET

YOUR MIND -- IF YOUR GOING

TO HAVE A DREAM, HAVE A

DREAM OF BEING IN THE

PRESENCE OF GOD ALMIGHTY.

Wendy: BRITTANY

SAYS, "HI, I'M 17 YEARS

OLD.

I'M STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I LOVE TAKING MY BIBLE TO

SCHOOL WITH ME DAILY, AND

PEOPLE LOVE PICKING ON ME.

I WAS WONDERING, HOW DO I

STAY TRUE TO GOD WITHOUT

ACTING LIKE THE KIDS AT

SCHOOL?"

Pat: I JUST LOVE YOU.

YOU'RE A 17-YEAR-OLD AND

YOU'RE STRONG IN THE FAITH

AND PEOPLE ARE MAKING FUN OF

YOU.

KEEP IN MIND, THEY'RE

WATCHING YOU AND PUSHING YOU

AND HOPING THAT YOU'LL BE

FIRM SO THEY'LL FIND

SOMEBODY THEY CAN BELIEVE

IN.

AND IF YOU STAY TRUE TO THE

LORD, THEN BEFORE LONG

OTHERS ARE GOING TO JOIN.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TO

FIND SOMEBODY IN SCHOOL WHO

AGREES WITH YOU, AND WHO

BELIEVES IN THE LORD, AND

THE TWO OF YOU FIND A COUPLE

MORE AND A COUPLE MORE.

THERE IS A GROUP CALLED

"YOUNG LIFE," AND THE

PREMISE THEY HAVE IS TO GO

AND LEAD SOME OF THE TOP

KIDS IN THE SCHOOL TO THE

LORD, FOOTBALL PLAYERS, HEAD

OF THE STUDENT BODY, ETC.

AND THOSE PEOPLE BECOME A

LITTLE NUCLEUS AND IT

SPREADS OUT TO OTHERS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO BE ALONE.

IT IS VERY HARD TO BE

ALONE.

BUT THERE IS BOUND TO BE

SOMEBODY ELSE IN SCHOOL WHO

BELIEVES LIKE YOU DO.

THE TWO OF YOU BEGINNING TO

HAVE A LITTLE BIBLE STUDY,

AND THEN YOU INVITE OTHERS.

AND YOU CAN SAY, LOOK WHO

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, THE

DEVIL, OR HEAVEN, OR THE

SECOND COMING OF JESUS,

WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO COME

IN?

AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

YOU LEAD THEM TO THE LORD.

YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS

CONTAGIOUS.

AND OTHERS WANT TO CATCH IT,

BUT THEY'LL WATCH YOU AND

PUSH YOU BECAUSE THEY'RE

ACTUALLY HOPING YOU'LL STAND

FIRM AND YOU'LL BE AN

EXAMPLE TO THEM.

BUT IT'S SORT OF A DEVILISH

THING TO SAY IF I CAN SHAKE

THEM, THEN THEIRS ISN'T

REAL.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

WRITES, "I WILL SOON RECEIVE

A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF

MONEY FROM THE SALE OF MY

MOTHER'S HOUSE.

SHE IS GIVING THIS TO ME AND

MY BROTHER.

DO I TITHE ON THIS?

I GUESS IT WOULD BE

CONSIDERED A GIFT, NOT MONEY

EARNED."

Pat: TITHE HAS NOTHING

TO DO WITH MONEY EARNED.

I THINK IT WOULD BE WISE TO

TITHE.

THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO

DO IS GO BLOW IT AND SPEND

IT ON STUFF.

I AM A GREAT BELIEVER IN

INVESTMENTS.

AS ONE GUY SAID, I LIKE

INVESTMENTS THAT SWEAT.

I LIKE THEM THAT TURN A

PROFIT, THAT GIVE YOU

DEFENDS AND YIELD INTEREST

OR SOMETHING SO THEY'RE

WORKING FOR YOU ALL THE

TIME.

FIND SOMETHING THAT WILL DO

THAT, AND THEN YOU'LL HAVE A

SOURCE OF INCOME.

BUT BY ALL MEANS TITHE AND

WATCH WHAT GOD WILL DO FOR

YOU.

Wendy: MICHAEL WRITES,

"I'VE BEEN MARRIED A 25

YEARS TO THE SAME WOMAN AND

I'VE BEEN A CHRISTIAN FOR 35

YEARS.

MY WIFE WILL NOT GIVE

HERSELF TO CHRIST, STILL,

AFTER ALL OF THESE YEARS OF

BEING WITH ME, AND, QUITE

FRANKLY, CAN BE IGNORANT OF

MY FAITH.

IT IS TRULY BEGINNING TO BE

A DAUNTING SITUATION LIVING

THIS WAY.

I ASKED FOR MANY TIMES FOR

HER TO TRY THE CHRIST WAY,

TO NO AVAIL.

WHEN I FIRST MET HER, SHE

WAS SWEET AND CHRIST-LIKE,

BUT SHE HAS BECOME A BITTER

LADY.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Pat: DO YOU LIKE

COUNTRY MUSIC?

Wendy: I DO.

Pat: SEVEN YEARS WITH

THE WRONG WOMAN -- HAVE YOU

HEARD THAT?

THAT'S A CLASSIC.

THIS MAN HAS BEEN A FAITHFUL

HUSBAND AND THE WIFE JUST

REJECTS.

WHAT A TERRIBLE THING TO

DO.

THAT'S WHY IT IS SO

IMPORTANT TO HAVE A LIFE

PARTNER WHO SHARES YOUR

FAITH.

DON'T BE UNEQUALLY YOLKED

TOGETHER WITH UNBELIEVERS.

I RECOMMEND THAT IN A SENSE

YOU FIND A MEN'S GROUP OR A

FELLOWSHIP IN CHURCH, WHERE

YOU CAN HAVE SOMEBODY TO

SHARE YOUR FAITH WITH.

PRAY THAT SOMEHOW GOD WILL

REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOUR

WIFE.

SHE IS YOUR PARTNER OF LIFE

AND THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM JEREMIAH

31: "I WILL REFRESH THE

WEARY AND SATISFY THE

FAINT."

TOMORROW, YOU'VE GOT A

LOUISIANA LOVE STORY, "DUCK

DYNASTY'S" ALAN ROBERTSON

AND HIS WIFE SHARE WHAT

KEEPS THEIR MARRIAGE

TOGETHER.

SEE YOU THEN.

BYE-BYE.
