The 700 Club - April 14, 2015

Not only did Annabel miraculously survive a 30-foot fall, but she was healed of a chronic ailment. Plus, growing up as a preacher’s daughter couldn’t keep Janie out of prison. Read Transcript


AMERICA'S NUMBER ONE

THREAT MAY NOT BE ISIS.

CHINA POSSESS THE

GREATEST LONG-TERM STRATEGIC

THREAT.

Wendy: AND THEY'RE

ALREADY ON THE ATTACK.

THE CHINESE CYBER-WARFARE

EFFORTS ARE THE MOST GRAPHIC

IN THE WORLD.

Wendy: PLUS...

I KEPT SAYING, WHERE IS

ANNABELLE.

Wendy: AN 8-YEAR-OLD IS

STUCK.

SHE'S IN A TREE.

JESUS MUST HAVE BEEN WITH

THAT LITTLE 8-YEAR-OLD IN

THAT TREE.

Pat: WELL,

WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

I WAS TALKING TO MY PRODUCER

EARLIER THIS MORNING, AND I

SAID, MAN, THIS IS LIKE A

HORROR SHOW WE'VE GOT

TODAY.

IT WILL SCARE YOU TO DEATH.

IF YOU TEND TO BE

FRIGHTENED, GO TO SOME PLACE

ELSE.

BUT IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE

EXCITED, WE HAVE

EXCITEMENT.

IRAN'S NUCLEAR AMBITIONS

HAVE BECOME EVEN MORE

DANGEROUS.

VLADIMIR PUTIN SAYS RUSSIA

IS NOW GOING TO SELL IRAN A

POWERFUL MISSILE SYSTEM, AN

ANTI-MISSILE SYSTEM, THAT

COULD BE USED TO PROTECT

IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM FROM

ANY AIRSTRIKE BY, SAY, THE

ISRAELIS.

Terry: THAT MOVE WOULD

STRENGTHEN IRAN'S MILITARY

ABILITIES, AND IT COMES AS

THE SENATE WANTS TO HAVE ITS

SAY ON PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

DEAL WITH IRON.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THE

STORY.

Heather: RUSSIAN

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN HAS

LIFTED RUSSIA'S BAN, AND

APPROVED THE DELIVERY OF ONE

OF THE MOST POTENT AIR

DEFENSE WEAPONS TO IRAN.

THE MISSILE SYSTEM HAS A

RANGE OF 125 MILES, AND CAN

TRACK DOWN AND STRIKE

MULTIPLE TARGETS

SIMULTANEOUSLY.

WE ARE CONVINCED AT THIS

STAGE THERE IS NO LONGER

NEED FOR SUCH AN IM

EMBARGO.

THE CONCERN IS THEY WOULD

PROTECT IRAN'S NUCLEAR

FACILITIES FROM AN AIR

ATTACK, AND GIVE IT COVER TO

DEVELOP NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

A WALL STREET EDITORIAL SAYS

THE KREMLIN IS OFFERING THEM

AN AIR DEFENSE CAPABILITY SO

SOPHISTICATED, IT WOULD

RENDER IRAN'S NUCLEAR

SYSTEMS FAR MORE COSTLY AND

DIFFICULT TO ATTACK.

RUSSIA INSISTS IT DOES NOT

THREATEN ISRAEL OR OTHER

COUNTRIES.

THE S-300 IS EXCLUSIVELY A

DEFENSIVE WEAPON, WHICH

CANNOT SERVE OFFENSIVE

PURPOSES AND WILL NOT

JEOPARDIZE THE SECURITY OF

ANY COUNTRY, INCLUDING, OF

COURSE, ISRAEL.

IT IS DIRECTLY CHALLENGING

THE WHITE HOUSE OVER THE

PROPOSED NUCLEAR DEAL.

THE SENATE IS CONSIDERING A

BILL THAT WOULD CONGRESS THE

LAST SAY OVER ANY FINAL

NUCLEAR AGREEMENT WITH

IRAN.

AT LEAST, AFTER TWO AND A

HALF YEARS OF NEGOTIATIONS,

THE CONGRESS SHOULD HAVE 60

DAYS TO BE ABLE TO REVIEW

PROBABLY THE MOST

SIGNIFICANT NUCLEAR

NON-PROLIFERATION AGREEMENT

OF OUR TIME.

Reporter: A SENATE

COMMITTEE VOTE ON THE BILL

IS LIKELY TODAY.

THE IRANIAN NUCLEAR DEAL IS

SUPPOSED TO BE FINALIZED BY

JUNE 30th.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT LOOKS LIKE THE

ISRAELIS ARE GOING TO HAVE

TO DO SOMETHING.

WE SHOWED YOU THAT EGYPTIAN

NEWSCASTER SAYING "MY DEAR

FRIENDS,FRIENDS," "MY DEAR

FRIEND, BENJAMIN, WILL YOU

PLEASE SEND YOUR DEAR

FRIENDS TO BLOW UP THE

FACILITY."

I THINK THE SAUDIS, THE

EMIRATES, WOULD LIKE VERY

MUCH TO SEE ISRAEL GET

ACTIVE AND TAKE OUT THOSE

NUCLEAR MISSILES.

THIS WOULD BE THE TIME TO DO

IT, BECAUSE ONCE THAT NEW

AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM COMES IN,

IT IS GOING TO BE ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE.

THE RUSSIANS KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

> WELL, THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL HAVE LIVED IN THE

SHADOW OF THE HOLOCAUST FOR

DECADES.

BUT A NEW SURVEY SAYS MANY

OF THEM FEAR THAT A

HOLOCAUST COULD HAPPEN

AGAIN.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU IN

WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THE CONCERNS

ABOUT ANOTHER HOLOCAUST,

PAT, ARE INDEED REAL IN

ISRAEL.

46% OF ISRAELIS BELIEVE A

HOLOCAUST COULD HAPPEN

AGAIN, ACCORDING TO A SURVEY

BY THE FOUNDATION FOR THE

BENEFIT OF THE HOLOCAUST

VICTIMS.

NEARLY HALF OF SURVIVORS

ALSO THINK THE HOLOCAUST

WILL BE FORGOTTEN IN THE

FUTURE.

THAT SURVEY COINCIDES WITH

HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE WEEK,

70 YEARS AFTER THE ALLIES

OPENED THE NAZI DEATH CAMPS

AND DISCOVERED 6 MILLION

JEWISH DEAD.

FEWER THAN 100,000 SURVIVORS

ARE ALIVE TODAY.

BUT ISRAELIS ARE WORKING

HARD TO KEEP THEIR MEMORIES

ALIVE.

Reporter: IT IS

DIFFICULT TO GRASP THE

HORROR AND DESTRUCTION OF

THE NAZI KILLING MACHINE.

ONE-THIRD OF THE WORLD'S

JEWS WERE MURDERED.

THE PAINS AND SCARS ENDURED

TO THE NEXT GENERATIONS.

DAVID WOULD HEAR HIS MOTHER

SCREAMING IN HER SLEEP AS

SHE RELIVED THE AGONY.

A GERMAN SOLDIER SEPARATED

HER FROM HER OWN MOTHER, WHO

DIED AT AUSCHWITZ.

SHE DIDN'T SPEAK ABOUT

THE GAS CHAMBERS BECAUSE SHE

WASN'T THERE.

BUT DURING THE SEPARATION,

SHE WAS THERE, AND THE

SEPARATION DIDN'T LEAVE

HER.

Reporter: HIS MOTHER

DIED TWO YEARS AGO, BUT

THROUGH A SECOND GENERATION

STUDY COURSE IN CENTRAL

ISRAEL, HE IS KEEPING HER

STORY ALIVE.

THE SHEM OLAN HOLOCAUST

INSTITUTE IS URGING PEOPLE

LIKE DAVID TO TELL THEIR

STORIES WHEN THE SURVIVORS

ARE GONE.

MANY CHILDREN DIDN'T ASK

TOUGH QUESTIONS OF THEIR

PARENTS.

HOW DID THE PARENTS DEAL

WITH THOSE QUESTIONS DURING

THOSE MOMENTS?

HOW DID THEY GO THROUGH THE

DIFFICULT MOMENTS OF

SEPARATION, OF LEAVING?

THEY WEREN'T ABLE TO ASK

THIS, AND APPARENTLY THE

PARENTS WEREN'T ABLE TO

ANSWER.

Reporter: MEANWHILE, IN

JERUSALEM, THE HOLOCAUST

MUSEUM TELLS MORE STORY IN

AN EXHIBITION CALLED

"CHILDREN IN THE HOLOCAUST,

STARS WITHOUT A HEAVEN,"

WITH DOLLS AND SKETCHES.

THIS TEDDY BEAR IS ON

DISPLAY.

THIS WOMAN CARRIED THE BEAR

DURING A REMARKABLE KIDNAP

ESCAPE WITH HER MOTHER, ON

THE TRAIN CAR LEAVING TO

AUSCHWITZ.

TEDDY IS MORE WAR WOUNDED

THAN I AM BECAUSE HE IS

MISSING AN EAR AND AN ARM,

BUT HE WAS A REAL HERO.

Reporter: JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS.

John: TODAY MARKS ONE

YEAR SINCE 219 SCHOOL GIRLS

WERE KIDNAPPED BY BOKO

HARAM.

ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE

ABDUCTION, THE NIGERIAN

PRESIDENT SAYS HE CANNOT

PROMISE THE AUTHORITIES WILL

FIND THE MISSING GIRLS.

MEANWHILE, ACTIVISTS MET IN

THE CAPITAL.

THEY WORE RED TAPE OVER

THEIR MOUTH, SYMBOLIZING

THOSE YOUNG GIRLS.

EACH AND EVERY ONE OF

THEM, WE FEEL THEM.

WE NEED TO RESCUE THEM.

AND UP TO NOW, WE HAVE NOT

DONE THAT.

AND THAT'S A SHAME FOR THIS

COUNTRY AND THE WORLD.

John: BOKO HARAM HAS

CAPTURED AT LEAST 2,000

WOMEN SINCE THE BEGINNING OF

2015.

> HERE AT HOME, THE

DEADLINE TO FILE TAXES IS

ONLY A DAY AWAY.

AND THE I.R.S. IS SENDING A

WARNING ABOUT SCAMMERS WHO

ARE HOPING TO STEAL YOUR

REFUND.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: IT IS CALLED

THE STOLEN REFUND SCAM.

LAST YEAR ALONE, MORE THAN

100,000 VICTIMS.

ACCORDING TO THE I.R.S.,

THIEVES ARE STEALING

PEOPLE'S SOCIAL SECURITY

NUMBERS, FILING FALSE TAX

RETURNS, AND THEN COLLECTING

THE REFUNDS.

THEY GET A LETTER FROM

THE I.R.S. WITH A THANK YOU

NOTE OR A CONFIRMATION THAT

THE MONEY HAS ALREADY BEEN

DEPOSITED AND THEY HAVEN'T

FILED YET, THAT IS TYPICALLY

HOW THEY FIND OUT.

Reporter: VICTIMS CAN

STILL RECEIVE THEIR REFUNDS

EVENTUALLY, BUT FIRST A

RED-TAPE NIGHTMARE.

FIRST OF ALL, THEY NEED

TO CALL THE I.R.S., AND

CARVE OUT SOME TIME, BECAUSE

IT WILL TAKE A WHILE FOR

THEM TO SPEND SOME TIME ON

THE PHONE.

LET THE I.R.S. KNOW WHAT HAS

HAPPENED.

IT IS LIKE ANY IDENTITY

THEFT.

THEY HAVE TO START WORKING

TO BUILD THE PIECES OF THEIR

LIVES BACK.

Reporter: THE I.R.S. IS

WORKING TO WEED OUT

SCAMMERS.

LAST YEAR THEY FLAGGED

19 MILLION SUSPICIOUS

RETURNS.

STILL, THEY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

TO BE VIGILANT.

THE FIRST KEY IS TO

PROTECT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY

NUMBER AGGRESSIVELY.

SO YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE IT OUT

WHEN YOU GO INTO A TAX

PREPARER'S STORE, SO THAT'S

SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DO.

BUT IF YOU'RE SENDING COPIES

OF YOUR TAX RETURN, BE VERY,

VERY CAREFUL BEFORE YOU GIVE

OUT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY

NUMBER.

Reporter: MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT AVOIDING

TAX SCAMS CAN BE FOUND AT

I.R.S I.R.S. GOV.

John: WASHINGTON IS

STILL SPENDING MORE AND

MORE, CAUSING THE DEFICIT TO

START RISING AGAINST,

HITTING $400 BILLION THIS

YEAR.

THEY HAVE DROPPED OFF FROM A

TRILLION DOLLARS JUST A FEW

YEARS AGO, THE CONGRESSIONAL

BUDGET OFFICE PREDICTS THEY

WILL START CLIMBING AGAIN.

THE ANNUAL DEFICITS WILL ADD

$7.7 TRILLIONS BY THE END OF

2024.

THE NUMBERS ARE STAGGERING.

Pat: YOU CAN'T CONCEIVE

OF WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

AND THIS IS A BURDEN WE'RE

LEAVING ON OUR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN.

I WAS SPEAKING WITH OUR

PRODUCER EARLIER, AND

SOMETHING I'VE KNOWN AND YOU

MAY NOT BE AWARE OF, BUT WE

HAVE HISTORICALLY LOW

INTEREST RATES.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS

BORROWING MONEY AT A HALF OF

A PERCENT OR 1% OR SOMETHING

LIKE THAT, AND THAT MAKES

THAT DEBT LOOK SO MUCH

EASIER.

BUT IF WE GO BACK TO

HISTORICAL NUMBERS, IF WE GO

TO 4%, 3%, 5% -- WHICH WAS

HISTORIC, THE NUMBER WE

RECEIVED IN INTEREST -- THE

FEDERAL BURDEN WILL BE

SIMPLY BEYOND MEASURE.

IF WE TALK ABOUT

$18 TRILLION, AND FIGURE 5%

OF THAT, IT WILL SWALLOW

EVERY OTHER THING IN THE

WHOLE FEDERAL BUDGET.

THIS THING IS A MONSTER.

AND YET WE HAVE A PRESIDENT

WHO JUST SAYS, OH, WELL,

DEBTS DON'T MATTER.

WE OWE IT TO OURSELVES, AND

ALL OF THAT NONSENSE.

SOONER OR LATER, A GREAT

COUNTRY IS GOING TO HAVE TO

DEFAULT.

WE'LL LOOK LIKE ARGENTINA.

WE CAN'T CARRY THIS LOAD

MUCH LONGER.

RIGHT NOW IT IS MANAGEABLE

BECAUSE WE HAVE A VIBRANT,

GROWING ECONOMY.

BUT WE MUST PUT IN PLACE

THOSE MEASURES THAT ARE

NEEDED THAT OVER THE NEXT 10

OR 20 YEARS WE PAY THIS

DEFICIT DOWN.

WE HAVE TO DO IT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE'RE

BURDENING OUR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN.

I WISH THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN

OUR AUDIENCE WOULD WAKE UP

TO THE PROBLEMS BECAUSE IT

IS GOING TO BE YOUR BILL,

BUDDY.

US OLD FOLKS WILL SHUFFLE

OFF

THE SCENE, BUT AS LOUIE

THE 14th SAID, I PRAY, AND

AFTER ME THE FLOOD COMES.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

TERRY?

Terry: WE'VE HEARD RUM

BLINGS FROM ISIS AND RUSSIA,

BUT ARE WE IGNORING A MUCH

BIGGER THREAT.

EVERY DAY BUSINESSES ARE

BEING AFFECTED AND PROPERTY

IS BEING STOLEN.

Terry: HEAR WHAT IS

BEHIND THESE LATEST ATTACKS

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I WANT TO PREFERENCE OUR

NEXT STORY BY TELLING YOU MY

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

I'VE BEEN TO CHINA A NUMBER

OF TIMES.

THERE IS AN AREA OF CHINA

THAT IS VERY POOR.

THE STANDARD OF LIVING IS

QUITE LOW.

AND THE QUESTION OF THE

CHINESE WANTING TO TAKE ON A

WAR OVERSEAS IS SOMETHING

THAT I SERIOUSLY DOUBT.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, THEY

WANT TO GROW THEIR ECONOMY

AND THEY WANT TO HAVE ALL OF

THE MODERN TECHNOLOGY.

AND IF THEY CAN GET IT FROM

US OR SOME OTHER COUNTRY, IT

WILL JUST BE SO MUCH THE

BETTER FOR THEM.

SO WHILE THE WORLD WORRIES

ABOUT THE DANGERS FROM

RADICAL ISLAM, AND A NUCLEAR

IRAN AND AN AGGRESSIVE

RUSSIA, A GROWING NUMBER OF

EXPERTS WARN THAT THAT

COUNTRY OF CHINA MIGHT POSE

THE GREATEST LONG-TERM

NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT TO

AMERICA.

HERE IS GARY LANE TO TELL US

MORE.

Reporter: WHILE AMERICA

FOCUSES ITS ATTENTION ON THE

MIDDLE EAST, CHINA IS

FLEXING ITS MILITARY MIGHT,

AND ADVANCING CYBER-WARFARE

TECHNOLOGY.

THIS COLUMNIST HAS WRITTEN

EXTENSIVELY ABOUT WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN ASH.

ASIA.

IT IS MY VIEW THAT CHINA

POSSESS THE GREATEST

LONG-TERM STRATEGIC THREAT

TO THE UNITED STATES THAN

ANYTHING.

MIKE POMPEO AGREES.

THIRD

THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC

NATION OR A NATION THAT

SHARES OUR VALUE SYSTEM.

IT IS NOT A NATION THAT WE

SHOULD, NOR ONE MOMENT,

THINK DOES NOT POSE A THREAT

TO AMERICA.

Reporter: THEY HAVE PUT

IT AHEAD OF THE U.S. IN

NUCLEAR AND DIESEL-POWERED

WESTLES.

VESSELS.

THE CHINESE HAS 77 COMBATANT

SHIPS.

55 LARGE AMPHIBIOUS SHIPS,

AND 85 MISSILE-EQUIPPED

SHIPS.

AND THEY PROJECT THEIR NAVAL

POWER AROUND THE WORLD.

AND EIGHT MORE ARE ON THE

DRAWING BOARD.

GERTZ SAYS THE THREAT WILL

ONLY GET WORSE.

THE CHINESE OBJECTIVE IN

ASIA IS TO DRIVE THE UNITED

STATES MILITARY OUT OF

ASIA.

CHINESE GENERALS AND

ADMIRALS HAVE TOLD OUR

PACIFIC COMMANDERS THAT, WHY

DON'T WE JUST SETTLE ON

DIVIDING THE PACIFIC INTO

TWO PARTS.

YOU TAKE THE EASTERN PART;

WE'LL TAKE THE WESTERN

PART.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA REJECTED THAT

PROPOSAL, AND IN LATE 2011

ANNOUNCED A STRATEGIC

SHIFT.

AMERICAN PRESENCE IN THE

ASIA PACIFIC WOULD BECOME A

TOP PRIORITY.

ASHTON CARTER'S FIRST

OVERSEAS VISIT AT DEFENSE

SECRETARY WAS TO SOUTH KOREA

AND JAPAN.

WE AND MANY OTHER

COUNTRIES ARE DEEPLY

CONCERNED ABOUT SOME OF THE

ACTIVITIES CHINA IS

UNDERTAKING.

IT'S OPAQUE DEFENSE BUDGET.

Reporter: AND THE U.S.

NAVY IS STARTING TO RETURN

TO PHILIPPINE MILITARY

BASES, LIKE SUBIC BAY.

AND IT SENDS A STRONG

MESSAGE TO CHINA AND ANYONE

ELSE THAT THE U.S. IS

COMMITTED TO PROTECT ITS

INTERESTS AND THOSE OF ITS

ALLIES IN THE WESTERN

PACIFIC.

THE HIGH CEASE AREN'T

CHINA'S ONLY PRIORITY.

THE CHINESE CYBER-WARFARE

EFFORTS ARE THE MOST

AGGRESSIVE IN THE WORLD.

EVERY DAY U.S. BUSINESSES

ARE BEING ATTACKED,

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY IS

BEING STOLEN.

Reporter: COSTING THE

U.S. ECONOMY TENS OF

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.

AND LIKE THE DESIGNS OF THE

LOCKHEED MARTIN DESIGNS, AND

A SHUTDOWN WOULD VIRTUALLY

AFFECT ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE,

TO THE COUNTRIES FOOD AND

WATER SUPPLY.

I THINK MOST AMERICANS

WOULD ASSUME OUR GOVERNMENT

IS PROTECTING US FROM THESE

POTENTIAL CYBER-ATTACKS.

BUT YOU SUGGEST WE'RE NOT

EVEN THERE YET.

ALL OF OUR AGENCIES,

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE, ARE

ALL MOVING TO WORK ON THIS

THREAT.

IT IS EASIER TO DO OFFENSE

THAN DEFENSE, AND IT IS AN

ENORMOUS CHALLENGE.

Reporter: GERTZ SAYS

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

PASSIVE RESPONSE HAS

INSPIRED FURTHER ATTACKS.

ITH THE SONY HACK FROM

NORTH KOREA DEMONSTRATED IT

IS NOT JUST A MATTER OF

GETTING IN AND DESTROYING

THING.

IT IS ACTUALLY HAVING THE

ABILITY TO INFLUENCE

POLICIES AND ACTIVITIES

BEYOND JUST THE TECHNICAL

SIDE OF A CYBER-ATTACK.

Reporter: CONGRESSMAN

POMPEO SAYS U.S.

INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES MUST

SHARE INFORMATION, AND THE

GOVERNMENT MUST INCREASE

RESOURCES IF THEY ARE TO

PREVENT ATTACKS.

GERTZ SAYS PRESIDENT OBAMA

NEEDS TO TRUST THE NATIONAL

SECURITY AGENCY TO GET THE

JOB DONE.

THAT ROLE HAS SHIFTED TO

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY, WHICH IS TOTALLY

UNPREPARED TO DO THIS.

WHEREAS N.S.A. AND THE NEW

MILITARY'S CYBER-COMMAND ARE

DEDICATED FORCES THAT ARE

READY TO GO AND HAVE

TREMENDOUS CAPABILITIES TO

COUNTER-ACT FOREIGN

CYBER-ATTACKS.

Reporter: EFFORTS THAT

WILL BE NEEDED IF AMERICA IS

TO COUNTER CHINA'S GROWING

THREAT IN THE DECADES TO

COME.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS, SUBIC

BAY, PHILIPPINES.

Pat: THANKS, GARY.

A TERRIFIC PROGRAM, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

DO YOU REALIZE WE'VE CUT OUR

NAVY TO THE SAME NUMBER OF

SHIPS WE HAD, I BELIEVE, AT

THE BEGINNING OF WORLD WAR

I.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT 600

SHIPS OR LESS.

MANY OF THEM ARE NOT UP TO

SPEED, AND UP TO

BATTLE-WORTHY CONDITIONS.

THE AIRCRAFT ARE NOT

MAINTAINED AS THEY SHOULD

BE.

THERE IS A SHORTAGE OF SPARE

PARTS.

WE NEED PROBABLY A

1,000-SHIP NAVY.

IF YOU'VE GOT THE SEVENTH

FLEET, HOW CAN YOU CONTROL

THE MEDITERRANEAN?

YOU HAVE THE FLEET TRYING TO

PATROL THE SOUTH CHINA SEA.

YOU HAVE THE RUSSIANS

SENDING SUBMARINES INTO THE

BALTIC AND THREATENING

LITHUANIA AND BOSTONIA.

YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THESE

THINGS HAPPENING, AND YOU'VE

GOT THE RUSSIANS IN THE

BLACK SEA, AND THEY'VE GOT A

NAVAL BASE.

THEY UNDERSTAND THE

STRATEGIC NATURE OF IT.

WE'VE GOT TO HAVE A ROBUST

NAVY TO PROJECT POWER AND TO

PROTECT OUR INTEREST RATES

AROUND THE WORLD.

THAT'S FOR STARTERS.

BUT THIS CYBER THING IS EVEN

MORE FRIGHTENING.

I CONGRATULATE STEVE ROSS

AND THE STORY HE DID ON

SONY.

ANYBODY COULD DO IT.

THEY LITERALLY GOT INSIDE

THE CORPORATE RECORDS OF A

MAJOR CORPORATION AND DID

UNTOLD DAMAGE.

THEY ESSENTIALLY PUT SONY

OUT OF BUSINESS FOR A

WHILE.

IT WAS DONE BY NORTH KOREA,

NO QUESTION.

NORTH KOREA CAN'T COME CLOSE

TO CHINA IN TERMS OF

SOPHISTICATION.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT A NEW

PHASE OF WARFARE.

IMAGINE IF ALL OF A SUDDEN

IN A CYBER-ATTACK, THEY SHUT

OFF THE GRID THAT CONTROLS

ALL OF OUR ELECTRICITY, AND

THEN THEY SHUT OFF THE WATER

SUPPLIES AND THEN THEY SHUT

OFF THE UTILITIES.

AND THEN THE COMMAND AND

CONTROL SYSTEM FOR

AIRPLANES, AND THEN THE

WHOLE MILITARY OF THE UNITED

STATES GETS HACKED.

IT CAN HAPPEN.

THAT'S WHY THIS IS SO, SO

IMPORTANT.

AND I TOTALLY AGREE WITH

WHAT WE JUST HAD.

HOMELAND SECURITY IS NOT

EVEN -- DOES NOT EVEN COME

CLOSE TO DOING WHAT IS

NEEDED.

WE HAVE A CYBER-COMMAND.

WE NEED TO LET THEM AND THE

N.S.A. GET GOING ON WHAT

THEY CAN DO.

N.S.A. IS MORE SOPHISTICATED

THAN ANY OF THEM.

AND IF THE GUYS HACK US, WE

NEED TO HACK BACK.

AND IT'S KIND OF AN UNSEEN

WARFARE THAT GOES ON UNDER

THE RADAR, BUT IT HAS GOT TO

BE DONE.

WE HAVE CAPABILITY TO DO IT,

BUT HOMELAND SECURITY IS NOT

THE AGENCY.

PRAY, PRAY THAT WE WON'T BE

DESTROYED IN THE NEXT TWO

YEARS, BECAUSE WE'RE IN

GRAVE DANGER.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

AN 8-YEAR-OLD WHO FELL

30 FEET, HEAD-FIRST, INTO A

HALLOWED-OUT TREE.

I JUST STARTED PRAYING,

REALLY JUST CRYING OUT, GOD,

PLEASE BE WITH HER.

GOD, PLEASE HELP HER.

GOD, PLEASE LET HER HER BE

OKAY.

Terry: GOD WAS WITH HER

IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE.

FIND OUT, NEXT.

Pat: ANNABELLE, A SWEET

LITTLE CHILD, LIVED IN

CHRONIC PAIN ALL OF THE TIME

SUFFERING.

THE LITTLE 8-YEAR-OLD

SUFFERED FROM DIGESTIVE

DISORDER THAT LEFT HER IN

CONSTANT AGONY.

IT GOT SO BAD, THAT SHE SAID

SHE WANTED TO DIE AND GO TO

HEAVEN WITH JESUS.

THIS IS AN 8-YEAR-OLD.

JESUS, TAKE ME, I HURT SO

BAD.

AND A FEW DAYS LATER, SHE

WAS OUTSIDE PLAYING WITH HER

SISTERS, AND GUESS WHAT?

SHE GOT HER PRAYER ANSWERED.

SHE WAS HYSTERICAL AND

SHE TUGGING ME, SCREAMING,

MOMMY, ANNABELLE IS STUCK IN

A TREE.

I THOUGHT, SHE CLIMBED TOO

HIGH.

I'M COMING.

SHE KEPT SAYING, MOMMY, YOU

DON'T UNDERSTAND.

COME NOW.

COME NOW.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

UNTIL CHRISTY FOLLOWED THE

ELDER OF HER THREE DAUGHTERS

OUTSIDE THAT SHE UNDERSTOOD

THE PANIC IN HER VOICE.

I KEPT SAYING, WHERE IS

ANNABELLE?

FINALLY AT THE SAME TIME

THEY BOTH POINTED TO THIS

MASSIVE TREE, AND THEY SAID,

SHE'S IN THE TREE, IN

UNISON.

AND EVERYTHING SLOWED DOWN

AND CAME TO A SCREECHING

HALT.

Reporter: 8-YEAR-OLD

ANNABELLE HAD FALLEN INTO A

HALLOWED OUT COTTON TREE AND

PLUNGED TO THE BOTTOM.

CHRISTY CALLED HER HUSBAND,

WHO RACED HOME.

I WANTED TO REACH DOWN

AND GRAB HER INTO MY ARMS,

AND IT WAS PHYSICALLY

IMPOSSIBLE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

CHRISTY CALLED 9-1-1.

KEVIN LOOKED FOR SIGNS THAT

HIS DAUGHTER WAS ALIVE.

ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

MOMENTS IN MY LIFE IS SHE

RAISED HER LEFT ARM AND PUT

IT BACK DOWN.

I KNEW AT THAT POINT SHE WAS

ALIVE.

Reporter: THE VOLUNTEER

FIRE DEPARTMENT ARRIVED AND

QUICKLY ASSESSED THE

SITUATION.

WE COULD SEE HER WITH

FLASHLIGHTS, AND THERE WAS

ENOUGH OF HER BODY TO SEE

SHE DIDN'T APPEAR TO HAVE

ANY MAJOR HEMORRHAGING.

Reporter: STILL, THE

RESCUE WOULD TAKE TIME AND

EXTREME CAUTION.

BECAUSE THE TREE WAS

ROTTEN, WE DIDN'T WANT TO

RISK CUTTING ANYTHING OUT

BECAUSE WE WERE AFRAID

THINGS WOULD FALL ON HER.

Reporter: AS THE FAMILY

LOOKED ON, THERE WAS ONLY

ONE THING THEY COULD DO.

I JUST STARTED PRAYING,

REALLY CRYING OUT, GOD,

PLEASE BE WITH HER.

GOD, PLEASE HELP HER.

GOD, PLEASE LET HERB OKAY.

HER BE OKAY.

I TEXTED MY DAD AND MY MOM,

AND I SAID, PRAY.

I REMEMBER SEEING THIS

LITTLE THING THAT STUCK OUT,

LIKE JETTED OUT OF THE

TREE.

IT WAS KIND OF LIKE A LITTLE

STEP STOOL, AND THE WHOLE

TIME I TRIED

TO

GET UP TO

THAT.

I WAS

CLIMBING UP AND I

DIDN'T QUITE REACH

THAT

THING BECAUSE IT WAS SO

MUDDY.

I WOULD

PROBABLY FALL OFF

AND PROBABLY HIT MY HEAD OR

SOMETHING AND BLACK OUT

AGAIN.

Reporter: FIREFIGHTERS

WERE FINALLY ABLE TO

COMMUNICATE WITH ANNABELLE.

THEY CREATED A MAKESHIFT

HARNESS AND LOWERED IT DOWN

TO HER.

THEY MADE IT INTO A SEAT,

THAT I HAD TO SIT INSIDE,

AND THEN THEY WOULD PULL ME

UP.

I WAS RELIEVED BECAUSE I

KNEW, I'M FINALLY GOING TO

GET OUT OF HERE.

Reporter: AFTER NEARLY

FOUR HOURS, RESCUE WORKERS

PULLED HER OUT OF THE TREE.

I WAS HAPPY, I WAS

GRATEFUL.

THEY GOT HER OUT.

THANK YOU, GOD.

SHE LOOKED PERFECT.

WE WERE VERY ESTATIC SHE

WAS NOT HARMED ANY WORSE

THAN SHE WAS.

NO BROKEN BONES, NO

PARALYSIS WAS NOTHING SHORT

OF MIRACULOUS.

Reporter: EVEN THE

DOCTORS WHO EXAMINED HER AT

THE HOSPITAL HAD NO

EXPLANATION AS TO WHY SHE

WASN'T SEVERELY INJURED.

THE DOCTOR SAID, YOU KNOW

WHAT, JESUS MUST HAVE BEEN

WITH THAT LITTLE GIRL

BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE

ANYBODY SAUR VIV SURVIVE

WITHOUT BROKEN BONES.

WHEN I WAS IN THAT TREE,

I WENT TO HEAVEN.

AND I REMEMBER IT WAS REALLY

BRIGHT.

AND I SAW MY MAMMY WHO DIED

A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK, AND

THAT'S HOW I KNEW I WAS IN

HEAVEN.

AND I SAT ON JESUS' LAP, AND

HE SAID WHEN THE

FIREFIGHTERS GET YOU OUT,

THERE WILL BE NOTHING WRONG

WITH HER.

Reporter: SHE HAD

SUFFERED FROM SEVERE

INTESTINAL ORDERS.

SHE WAS CONSTANTLY IN PAIN

AND IN AND OUT OF

HOSPITALS.

THE DOCTORS SAID THROUGH NO

CURE.

HER STOMACH COULD TAKE

FOOD IN, BUT IT COULDN'T DO

ANYTHING AFTER THAT.

SHE HAD SOME DAYS WHEN SHE

COULD GO OUT AND PLAY WITH

HER SISTERS.

THEY WERE HER BEST

MEDICINE.

IT WAS PROBABLY 10 DAYS OR

MORE AFTER THE ACCIDENT WHEN

I REALIZED I ASSESSED THE

FACT SHE HAD NEVER GONE THIS

LONG WITHOUT HURTING.

SHE HAD NEVER GONE THIS LONG

WITHOUT HAVING A FLAREUP OF

HER STOMACH.

Reporter: THE DOCTORS

HAD NO ANSWERS AS TO WHY

ANNABELLE SHOWED NO SIGNS OF

HER AILMENT.

THEY SLOWLY STARTED TAKING

HER OFF OF HER MEDICATIONS.

WE DROPPED ONE MEDICATION

AFTER ANOTHER.

AND ANNABELLE IS ON ZERO

MEDICATIONS TODAY.

SHE DOESN'T GO TO A

SPECIALIST ANYMORE.

SHE DOESN'T GO TO DOCTORS

FOR MEDICATION ANYMORE.

SHE HAS BEEN RELEASED.

Reporter: TODAY

ANNABELLE IS EATING WELL AND

VERY ACTIVE.

IT WAS JUST SO MUCH FUN

BECAUSE I COULD MAKE UP FOR

ALL OF THE TIMES THAT I WAS

SICK ON THE COUCH.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

HAS LEARNED FROM THEIR

EXPERIENCE THAT GOD IS

ALWAYS THERE.

THEY TELL THE STORY OF

ANNABELLE'S JOURNEY IN THE

BOOK "MIRACLES FROM

HEAVEN."

HE IS POWERFUL AND HE IS

AMAZING AND HE IS BIG, BUT

HE IS ALSO SO TENDER AND SO

INTIMATE THAT HE KNEW

ANNABELLE SO WELL, AND HE

LOVED HER SO MUCH, THAT HE

GAVE HER BACK.

I

I JUST HOPE THAT PEOPLE

WHO ARE GOING THROUGH WHAT I

DID, OR ANY HARD TIMES OF

STRUGGLING, KEEP FAITH IN

GOD AND REALIZE THAT HE IS

NOT JUST FORGETTING ABOUT

YOU.

HE REALLY DOES KNOW ABOUT

YOU.

AND HE REALLY DOES CARE.

AND HE HAS A PLAN.

AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP FAITH

IN HIM.

Pat: A LITTLE GIRL

SITTING ON JESUS' LAP IN

HEAVEN, AND THEN MEETING HER

DEAD GRANDMOTHER WHO IS

ALIVE.

Terry: AND COMING BACK

WHOLE.

Pat: COMING BACK

COMPLETELY WHOLE.

IT IS A WONDERFUL STORY.

FOLKS, LET'S PRAY FOR YOU.

AND BEFORE WE DO, WE WANT TO

SHARE A COUPLE OF OTHER

MIRACULOUS THINGS THAT ARE

HAPPENING, AND THEN WE WANT

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

Terry: THIS IS MARIANNE

WHO LIVES IN CALIFORNIA.

SHE DEVELOPED PAIN IN HER

KNEE.

X-RAYS SHOWED POSSIBLE

CALCIUM DEPOSITS OR A

CHIPPED BONE.

THE DOCTOR RECOMMENDED

SURGERY.

SHE DIDN'T WANT IT.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM AND HEARD YOU

SAY, THERE IS A KNEECAP

PROBLEM, BUT PUT YOUR HAND

ON YOUR KNEE AND YOU'RE

GOING TO FEEL HEAT.

IMMEDIATELY MARIANNE FELT

WARMTH IN HER KNEE AND HAS

HAD NO PAIN SINCE THEN.

Pat: PEGGY, WHO LIVED

IN MISSOURI, EXPERIENCED

ISSUES WITH HER TEETH WHEN

THE ROOT WAS EXPOSED.

THE DENTIST REMOVED SEVERAL

TEETH AND STILL MORE

EXTRACTIONS WOULD BE

NECESSARY.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING AND

HEARD TERRY SAY, SOMEBODY

HAS GOT A BONE DISEASE IN

YOUR MOUTH.

DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?

Terry: I REMEMBER

THAT.

Pat: THERE HAS BEEN

SOME CONCERN ABOUT LOSING

YOUR TEETH.

GOD IS HEALING YOU AND

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LOSE

ANYMORE TEETH.

AND GUESS WHAT?

NO MORE TEETH HAVE FALLEN

OUT, AND PEGGY IS

PAIN-FREE.

AND SHE IS PRAISING GOD FOR

THE MIRACLE.

> FOLKS, I'M JUST

BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND THAT

GOD'S NAME IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT IS YAWAY.

AND IT MEANS HE WHO CAUSES

EVERYTHING TO BE.

AND GOD IS THE AUTHOR AND

THE SOURCE OF ALL LIFE, OF

ALL POWER, AND HE CREATED

THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH.

HE IS SO POWERFUL HE BROUGHT

ALL OF THE STARS INTO BEING

IN THE UNIVERSE.

SO IT IS NOTHING FOR HIM TO

SPEAK A WORD AND HEAL YOUR

BODY.

IT IS NOTHING FOR HIM TO

SPEAK A WORD AND HEAL YOU'RE

FINANCES, HEAL YOUR

MARRIAGE, TO BRING YOU

SUCCESS.

HE CAN BRING SUCCESS AND HE

CAN BRING FAILURE.

HE CAN DO EITHER.

HE CAN SET A COUNTRY UP OR

HE CAN PUT A COUNTRY DOWN.

GOD IS SO ABLE.

THIS WORLD IS JUST ONE TINY

PART OF HIS UNIVERSE.

BUT SOMEHOW HE IS CONCERNED

ABOUT PEOPLE.

HE'S GOT A BILLION, TRILLION

STARS IN THE UNIVERSE, AND

YET HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT A

LITTLE GIRL SITTING IN HIS

LAP.

THAT'S THE KIND OF GOD WE

SERVE.

NOW, HE LOVES YOU, AND TERRY

AND I ARE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER.

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD.

PLEASE JOIN WITH US AND

TRUST THE LORD.

HE IS LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO

BELIEVE HIM.

AND I BELIEVE GOD.

FATHER, I AFFIRM, TERRY

AFFIRMS, WE AFFIRM TOGETHER,

THAT YOU ARE GOD ALMIGHTY.

YOU ARE YAWAY, LORD OF ALL.

YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF

EVERYTHING.

NOW, LORD, YOUR PEOPLE ARE

HERE, AND YOU HAVE DRAWN

THEM TO YOURSELF.

AND THEY'RE HURTING, AND

THEY ASK A GRAY GO GRACIOUS

GOD TO COME AND HEAL THEM.

WE PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE IN

THIS AUDIENCE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

TOOTH DECAY, BONE LOSS, THE

LORD IS HEALING THAT RIGHT

AT THIS MOMENT.

THERE IS SOMEBODY'S EYE

SOCKET -- YOUR SOCKET IS

INFLAMED AND YOUR EYE IS

PROTRUDING OUT OF THE EYE

SOCKET.

RIGHT NOW PUT YOUR HAND OVER

THERE AND GOD HAS JUST DONE

SOMETHING.

TERRY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A LUMP UNDER YOUR

UNDERARM, AND YOU'RE

CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

GOD IS TOUCHING THAT AND IT

WILL SLOWLY DISSOLVE AND GO

AWAY.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE WITH

AN EAR ISSUE.

IT IS NOT RINGING, BUT IT

SOUNDS LIKE A TUNNEL.

BUT GOD IS HEARING THAT FOR

YOU.

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CLARITY

OF HEARING IS GOING TO COME

OVER YOU.

Pat: THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE

RIGHT NOW HAVE MIGRAINE

HEADACHES.

RIGHT NOW AS I SPEAK THE

WORD, THOSE HEADACHES WILL

LEAVE YOU IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

THE NERVES THAT HAVE BEEN

IRRITATED, THEIR IRRITATION

WILL CEASE, AND THE POWER OF

GOD WILL COME UPON YOU, AND

YOU ARE HEALED IN JESUS'

NAME.

TOUCH!

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A RIB PROBLEM -- IT

IS LIKE THE BONE OF YOUR RIB

IS SOFT.

YOU'VE HAD A LOT OF PROBLEMS

WITH BREAKING AND PAIN.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT.

Pat: A MARRIAGE -- MARY

AND GLEN, I BELIEVE IT IS,

GOD JUST GAVE YOU A BURST OF

LOVE.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE LOVE IN

YOUR HEART TOWARDS EACH

OTHER YOU NEVER HAD BEFORE.

THERE IS GOING TO BE A UNION

THAT WILL BE EXTRAORDINARY

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AMEN.

CALL US.

WE'RE HERE IF YOU WANT

PRAYER.

PLEASE CALL.

WE'RE HIS HAND EXTENDED AND

WE'RE EXTENDED IN YOUR

BEHALF.

SO YOU CAN CALL US.

IT'S TOLL-FREE.

NO FINANCE INVOLVED.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, TIME FOR ANOTHER

ROUND OF "BRING IT ON."

TERESA SAYS, "I HAD AN

ABORTION WHEN I WAS

YOUNGER.

DO I NEED TO TELL MY OTHER

CHILDREN THAT THEY SHOULD

HAVE HAD ANOTHER SIBLING?"

WELL, PAT IS READY TO ANSWER

THAT ONE AND MORE.

DON'T GO AWAY.

AND WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

WATER TROUBLES COULD SOON BE

GETTING WORSE FOR SOME

PEOPLE IN CALIFORNIA.

AS THE STATE TRIES TO COPE

WITH AN HISTORIC DROUGHT.

THE BOARD OF THE

METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT

MEETS TODAY TO CONSIDER

CUTTING BACK ON WATER

SERVICE.

THE CUTS WOULD BE FOR MORE

THAN TWO DOZEN CITIES AND

AGENCIES, SERVING 19 MILLION

PEOPLE IN SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA.

THE EFFECTS WOULD BE

DIFFERENT IN VARIOUS

DISTRICTS.

AREAS THAT HAVE FALLEN SHORT

IN CONSERVING WATER WOULD

HAVE TO TAKE OTHER

CONSERVATION STEPS AND RAISE

PRICES ON THEIR WATER.

> IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING

OUT OF SCIENCE FICTION, BUT

IT IS TRUE.

THE WORLD'S FIRST HEAD

TRANSPLANT IS SET TO TAKE

PLACE POSSIBLY AS SOON AS

NEXT YEAR.

IT WILL BE ON A 30-YEAR-OLD

RUSSIAN MAN.

HE HAS A RARE DISEASE THAT

IS CAUSING HIS MUSCLES TO

WASTE AWAY.

A TEAM OF 100 SURGEONS WOULD

PERFORM THE PROCEDURE OVER

36 HOURS.

THE MAN'S HEAD WILL BE

ATTACHED TO A NEW BODY BY

FUSING THE SPINAL CORD AND

BRINGING TOGETHER THE REST

OF THE BODY.

THE PATIENT WOULD BE OWNER A

COMA FOR THREE TO FOUR

WEEKS, AND THE DOCTORS

ESTIMATE HE COULD WALK

WITHIN A YEAR.

THE RUSSIAN MAN SAS H SAYS

HE IS AWARE OF THE RISKS,

BUT

HE IS WILLING TO TAKE

THE CHANCE.

GOD BLESS ALL OF THEM.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: TIME TO "BRING

IT ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM TERESA.

SHE SAYS, "I HAD AN ABORTION

WHEN I WAS 18.

I DID MARRY THE SAME MAN WHO

GOT ME PREGNANT.

WE'RE NOW CHRISTIANS AND

HAVE TWO GODLY-LOVING

CHILDREN, ALL GROWN UP.

I KNOW GOD HAS FORGIVEN US

FOR THE TRAGIC DECISION WE

MADE WHEN I WAS 18.

I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD TELL MY

CHILDREN THEY COULD HAVE HAD

ANOTHER SIBLING.

SHOULD I LET THEM KNOW SO

THEY DON'T BE SURPRISED WHEN

THEY MET THEM IN HEAVEN.

SHOULD I GIVE HIM OR HER A

NAME.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR

THOUGHTS?"

Pat: JEREMIAH SAID,

BEFORE I FORMED YOU IN THE

WOMB, I KNEW YOU.

GOD FORMED THAT CHILD IN THE

WOMB.

PRESUMABLY THAT CHILD WOULD

WILL HAVE A LIFE IN HEAVEN.

IT IS UP TO YOU WHAT YOU

TELL YOUR CHILDREN.

I DON'T KNOW THEIR LEVEL OF

MATURITY.

WHAT IF THEY THINK, WHAT IF

IT HAD BEEN US?

YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY

ARE MATURE ENOUGH.

YOU COULD SAY YOU HAVE A

LITTLE SISTER IN HEAVEN.

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU HANDLE

IT.

Terry: KEISHA SAYS,

"GOD HAS WATCHED OVER ME

WHILE FACING SERIOUS

CHALLENGES.

I HAD A HARD LIFE GROWING

UP, I WAS SEXUALLY

ASSAULTED, BEATEN UNTIL I

BLED, WATCHING EVERYBODY

AROUND ME USE AND TAKE ALL

WE HAD.

I'M THE OLDEST CHILD AND HAD

SIX LITTLE SIBLINGS TO

PROTECT.

IT WAS HARD LIVING IN THE

HOUSE WHEN MY MOTHER'S

BOYFRIEND WAS MOLESTING ME

AND THEN SETTING UP TO RAPE

ME.

I COULDN'T TELL ANYONE IN

SCHOOL BECAUSE I WAS GETTING

PADDLED FOR NOT DOING MY

HOMEWORK.

NO ONE SEEMED TO CARE.

FINALLY WE WERE PLACED IN

FOSTER CARE.

GOD LET ME KNOW HE WAS THERE

FOR ME.

I'M GRATEFUL HE SHOWED ME

LOVE.

I'M NOW 27 AND STILL HAUNTED

BY MY PAST.

I TRULY WANT TO FORGIVE, BUT

IT IS EXTREMELY HARD.

I'VE TRIED COUNSELLING.

I'M TIRED OF BEING HELD DOWN

BY THESE TERRIBLE MEMORIES,

AND I'M READY TO FIND

PEACE.

PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE.

HOW DO I MOVE PAST THIS?"

Pat: YOU HAVE A STORY

THAT IS SO HORRIBLE.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE SOMETHING

OUT OF SOME FICTIONAL HORROR

STORY.

LOOK, THE BIG THING YOU'VE

GOT TO STOP DOING IS

RELIVING IT.

YOU GAVE A CHRONOLOGICAL

DESCRIPTION OF ALL OF THE

THINGS PEOPLE DID, SETTING

YOU UP AND TRYING TO RAPE

YOU, BEING BEATEN BECAUSE

YOU DIDN'T HAVE SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

YOU GO DOWN A LIST.

YOU'VE GOT TO STOP RELIVING

THAT.

EVERY TIME YOU BRING IT UP,

IT'S GOING TO BE WORSE.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE'LL CLEANSE

US FROM DEAD WORKS TO SERVE

THE LIVING GOD.

HE'LL TAKE THIS STUFF OUT OF

OUR MIND.

HE CAN TAKE IT OUT OF OUR

CONSCIOUSNESS.

WHAT YOU CAN DO IS SAY,

LORD, TAKE THIS.

HOW DO YOU GET RID OF BAD

THOUGHTS.

I THINK YOU'VE GOT A FAMILY

NOW, OR WHATEVER, YOU NEED

TO BEGIN TO LIVE IN THE

NOW.

YOU NEED TO LIVE IN THE

PRESENT.

AND YOU NEED TO ENJOY

EVERYTHING.

WHATEVER, YOU LOOK AT THE

SKY AND THANK GOD FOR IT.

YOU EAT YOUR FOOD AND YOU

THANK GOD FOR IT.

YOU HAVE A JOB, YOU THANK

GOD FOR IT.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, YOU GO

AROUND AND HAVE THE GARMENT

OF PRAISE.

YOU BEGIN TO PRAISE GOD

EVERY TIME.

YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING

AND SAY, I PRAISE YOU.

BUT STOP THINKING ABOUT

THESE THINGS.

YOU CANNOT GET RID OF THEM

IF YOU CONTINUE TO RELIVE

THEM.

THEY'RE LIKE GHOSTS.

PUT THEM IN THE ATTIC AND

SHUT THE DOOR.

IT IS HORRIBLE WHAT HAPPENED

TO YOU, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO

LIVE YOUR LIFE NOW.

BEGIN TO PRAISE GOD WHEREVER

YOU ARE.

THE WAY OUT OF THE

WILDERNESS IS OVERCOMING

PRAISE.

THANK HIM.

PRAISE HIM.

I WORSHIP YOU.

I PRAISE YOU.

I THANK YOU.

CONTINUE TO PRAISE HIM AND

YOU'LL FIND GOODNESS COME

INTO YOUR HEART.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "WE TRY TO LIVE RIGHT

AND WE TEND TO GO TO CHURCH,

BUT WE'RE LAZY.

WILL GOD STILL LET US INTO

HEAVEN.

I HAVE SINNED AND STILL

THINK ABOUT WHAT I DID.

WILL THAT STILL COUNT

AGAINST ME?"

Pat: I THINK THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH THINKS NOT

GOING TO CHURCH IS A SIN.

THE BIBLE SAYS WE SHOULDN'T

FORSAKE THE ASSEMBLY OF

OURSELVES TOGETHER, BUT IT

DOESN'T SAY YOU'RE GOING TO

HELL IF YOU DON'T DO IT.

I BELIEVE, IF NOTHING ELSE,

SO YOU'RE LAZY.

SO START OUT -- YOU'VE GOT A

HUSBAND, YOU'VE GOT A WIFE,

AND YOU'VE GOT KIDS.

EVERYBODY SIT TOGETHER.

EVERYBODY GET A BIBLE.

EVERYBODY READ THE BIBLE AND

JUST DISCUSS WHAT YOU READ

AND THEN PRAY TOGETHER.

NOW, THAT'S CHURCH, RIGHT

THERE.

AND WHERE TWO OF YOU GATHER

TOGETHER IN MY NAME, THERE I

AM IN THE MIDST OF THEM.

IT WOULD BE EASIER.

SO, YES, YOU SHOULD GO IF

YOU POSSIBLY CAN.

BUT, NO, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

HELL BECAUSE YOU DON'T GO TO

CHURCH.

THAT'S JUST NOT IN THE

BIBLE.

TERRY?

Terry: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS TODAY, BUT WE DO

LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

UP NEXT, A WILD CHILD FINDS

A FASTER WAY TO LOSE

WEIGHT.

I WAS 110 POUNDS.

I WAS, LIKE, I'VE GOT TO GET

THINNER.

THE ONLY WAY I'M GOING TO BE

LOVED IS IF I'M REALLY,

REALLY, REALLY THIN.

AND THE MORE DOPE I DO, THE

THINNER I CAN GET.

THE MORE I THROW UP, THE

THINNER I CAN GET.

Terry: HEAR HOW HER

HABIT NEARLY COST HER HER

FREEDOM.

Terry: AT JUST 24 YEARS

OF AGE, JAMIE HAD A RAP

SHEET LONGER THAN MOST

CAREER CRIMINALS.

FAILED NUMEROUS DRUG TESTS,

RAN AROUND WITH THE MAFIA,

AND HAD 17 WARRANTS FOR HER

ARREST.

BUT ONE DAY JAMIE KNEW HER

LIFE OF CRIME HAD COME TO AN

END AFTER BEING SENTENCED TO

40 YEARS BEHIND BARS.

Reporter: JAMIE BERKET

WAS RAISED IN A QUIET TOWN

IN OKLAHOMA.

SHE WAS A PASTOR'S DAUGHTER

WITH A LOVING FAMILY.

WE HAD A GREAT CHURCH.

I KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING

GREAT I WAS GOING TO DO FOR

GOD.

I LOVED JESUS SO MUCH.

Reporter: BUT WHEN

JAMIE WAS 10 YEARS OLD, HER

PARENTS SEPARATED.

WE WERE BUSY, BUSY WITH

GOD.

THEY WERE BUSY HELPING OTHER

PEOPLE, BUT THEY FORGOT

ABOUT THEMSELVES.

THE VISION THAT I HAD OF GOD

BEGAN TO SWITCH, THAT HE IS

A JUDGEMENTAL GOD.

THE VISION OF GOD WAS, IF

YOU'RE A LOVING GOD, THEN

WHY DO YOU LET BAD THINGS

HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE.

Reporter: A FEW MONTHS

LATER, JAMIE'S PARENTS

RECONCILED.

THEY DECIDED TO TRAVEL

FULL-TIME AS EVANGELISTS.

BUT JAMIE HATED HER NEW LIFE

ON THE ROAD.

MY CHILDHOOD FROM THAT

POINT WAS CRUMBLING.

I BEGAN TO COMFORT EAT.

I WAS 200 POUNDS AT 15, 16

YEARS OLD.

Reporter: AT THE AGE OF

15, WHILE HER PARENTS WERE

PREACHING AT A REVIVAL,

JAMIE WAS RAPED BY A BOY HER

AGE.

FOR YEARS SHE KEPT IT A

SECRET.

FOR A LONG TIME I TOOK

THE BLAME OF IT, THAT IT'S

MY FAULT.

AND I HATED MYSELF.

SO I WAS RAPED WHEN I WAS

FAT, AS I WOULD SAY.

I JUST WANTED TO GET RID OF

IT, JUST GET RID OF IT.

I THINK THAT'S WHERE MOST OF

THE BULEMIA STARTED.

Reporter: AFTER FIVE

YEARS ON THE ROAD, JAMIE'S

FAMILY SETTLED DOWN IN A

SMALL TEXAS TOWN.

JAMIE PLUNGED INTO THE PARTY

LIFE.

I BEGAN TO GET IN WITH

THE WRONG CROWD.

THEN WHEN I TOOK MY FIRST

HIT OF COCAINE AT 17, IT WAS

WHEN IT WAS LIKE OVER THE

TOP.

THIS IS WHAT CAUGHT ME WITH

DRUGS BECAUSE IT COMPLETELY

TOOK AWAY THE REALITY OF

WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT

MYSELF.

BUT AS SOON AS THE HIGH

FADED OFF, THE INSECURITY

CAME RIGHT BACK.

SO I WAS HOOKED, MY FIRST

HIT.

Reporter: WHILE HER

DRUG USE WAS RISING, JAMIE'S

WEIGHT WAS PLUMMETTING.

WHEN I WOULD LOOK IN THE

MIRROR AND I WAS 110 POUNDS,

I WOULD THINK, I'VE GOT TO

GET THINNER.

THE ONLY WAY I WILL BE LOVED

IS THE THINNER I WAS.

Reporter: SOON SHE

FOUND A NEW WAY TO TAKE

DRUGS, THE NEEDLE.

I HAD A $300 OR $400 A

DAY HABIT.

THEN YOU START DOING DOPE

AND DOING ORGANIZED CRIME.

IT WAS A WAY OF SURVIVAL.

Reporter: JAMIE'S

FAMILY WERE GRIEVED OVER HER

ADDICTIONS, BUT THEIR

EFFORTS TO PULL HER OUT WERE

FUTILE TAL.

FUTILE.

THEY WOULD PUT ON

CHRISTIAN WORSHIP MUSIC WHEN

I WOULD COME HOME.

AND I WOULD COME HOME AND

CLEAN UP FOR A DAY.

AND THEN HERE I GO AGAIN.

I CAN REMEMBER MY DAD, TEARS

WERE POURING DOWN HIS FACE

WHEN I WOULD LEAVE BECAUSE

HE KNEW HE WOULDN'T SEE ME

AGAIN FOR MONTHS.

Reporter: BY THE AGE OF

22, SHE WAS A HIGH DRUG

DEALER.

THEY SET MY BOND AT

$1.5 MILLION.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY SERVED FIVE

MONTHS OF HER PRISON

SENTENCE.

BUT LESS THAN A YEAR AFTER

HER RELEASE, SHE VIOLATED

HER PROBATION WITH ALCOHOL

AND DRUG USE.

ON DECEMBER 18th WAS MY

HEARING, FOR ME TO GO BEFORE

A JUDGE.

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SHE

SAID, I'M CONFINING MISS

BERKET TO THE TEXAS

DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS

FOR 40 YEARS.

I THOUGHT ABOUT, WHEN IT'S

TIME TO GET MARRIED, I'M

GOING TO BE IN PRISON.

WHEN IT IS TIME TO HAVE KIDS

AND WATCH THEM GROW UP, I'M

GOING TO BE IN PRISON.

24 YEARS OLD, COMPLETELY

BROKEN, 97 POUNDS,

ALCOHOLIC, DRUG ADDICT, I

HAD NO LIFE BEFORE ME.

I WAS TRANSFERRED BACK TO

THE WOMEN'S STATE PRISON TO

SERVE OUT MY 40 YEARS.

BUT I REMEMBER LOOKING OUT

THE WINDOW, SEEING ALL THAT

WAS BEFORE ME.

IT WAS JUST ME AND JESUS.

ME AND THE SAVIOR WHO DIED

FOR ME.

AND I SAID, GOD, I'VE MADE A

MESS OUT OF MY LIFE.

IF YOU CAN TAKE THIS BROKEN

PERSON AND MAKE SOMETHING

GOOD OUT OF IT, THEN DO IT.

AND I ASK YOU, LORD, FOR

THIS TO BE YOUR WILL, WOULD

YOU PLEASE OVERTURN THIS

SENTENCE.

BUT IF NOT, PLEASE GIVE ME

GRACE TO ACCEPT THE FACT

THAT I WILL SPEND MOST OF MY

LIFE HERE AND GIVE ME PEACE

AND LOVE TO DO IT.

I BEGAN TO READ THE BIBLE.

MY ANGER BEGAN TO BREAK.

AND MY HATE BEGAN TO BREAK.

AND THE LOVE OF GOD BEGAN TO

FLOW THROUGH HE.

Reporter: AT THE SAME

TIME JAMIE AND HER PARENTS

WERE PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE,

THE JUDGE WHO SENTENCED HER

RESIGNED AND A NEW JUDGE

TOOK THE BENCH.

SOON AFTER JAMIE RECEIVED A

LETTER FROM HER MOTHER.

AND IT SAID, "YAY, WE GOT

A NEW TRIAL."

AND IT SAID, "A NEW JUDGE IS

GOING TO HEAR YOUR CASE."

Reporter: JAMIE ASKED

THE DRUG TO SEND HER TO A

TEEN PROGRAM.

SHE SAID, WHAT YOU DID

WAS WRONG AND UNACCEPTABLE

TO THIS COURT.

BUT THAT WOULD NOT AND

COMPASSIONATE.

I'M GOING TO PROBATE THAT

SENTENCE, THAT YOU GO TO THE

TEEN CHALLENGE PROGRAM, YOU

COMPLETE THE PROGRAM, AND

YOU MAKE SOMETHING OF

YOURSELF.

I SAW GOD THAT DAY, THE ONE

WHO LOVED ME.

NOT A JUDGEMENTAL GOD, NOT A

GOD WHO IS GOING TO THROW

YOU AWAY BECAUSE YOUR

WORTHLESS, BUT A GOD WHO

MAKES BROKEN THINGS NEW.

I SAW A GOD WHO LOVED ME

MORE THAN I LOVED MYSELF.

Reporter: JAMIE LEFT

FOR TEEN CHALLENGE.

I WENT IN BASICALLY DEAD,

AND THE LORD WAS

TRANSFORMING ME IN 13

MONTHS.

I CONGRATULATED AT

135 POUNDS.

I HAD FINALLY COMPLETED

SOMETHING IN MY LIFE, AND

GOD HAD GIVEN ME A NEW

START.

AND I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR,

AND I SAW SOMEBODY

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

I SAW MY HAIR WAS FULLER AND

MY EYES WERE BEAUTIFUL.

AND I SAW WHO GOD SAW.

Reporter: TODAY JAMIE

IS DRUG-FREE AND IS

COMPLETELY RECONCILED WITH

HER FAMILY.

SHE IS ALSO A FULL-TIME

SPEAKER AND HAS WRITTEN A

BOOK CALLED "UNSHACKLED."

THERE IS NO DRUG THAT IS

TOO BIG FOR GOD.

HATHERE IS NO PRISON THAT

IS TOO BIG FOR GOD.

GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS

BECAUSE IT WILL BE THE BEST

DECISION YOU WILL MAKE IN

YOUR LIFE.

JUST TRY JESUS.

DON'T LET HIM BE YOUR LAST

SHOT.

TRY HIM AND SEE WHAT A

DIFFERENCE HE CAN MAKE IN

YOUR LIFE.

Terry: WHEN I LISTEN TO

JAMIE'S STORY, I THINK OF

THAT SAYING THAT SIN WILL

TAKE YOU FURTHER THAN YOU

THOUGHT YOU WOULD GO, COST

YOU MORE THAN YOU EVER

THOUGHT YOU WOULD PAY, AND

KEEP YOU LONGER THAN YOU

EVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD

STAY.

THAT'S NOT GOD'S PLAN FOR

YOUR LIFE.

HE WANTS TO HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU.

EVEN THE EVIL AND THE BAD

AND THE LOSS THAT HAS

HAPPENED, HE PROMISES TO

TAKE AND WORK FOR GOOD.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FIND

A PROMISE LIKE THAT?

WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO FIND

A SAVIOR LIKE THAT?

WHO LOOKS BEHIND YOUR FAULT

AND SEES YOUR NEED.

WHO LOVES YOU RIGHT WHERE

YOU'RE AT AND WHO SAYS, I'VE

BEEN WAITING FOR YOU; I

CHOOSE YOU.

YOU KNOW THAT RESPONSE FROM

GOD REQUIRES A RESPONSE FROM

US.

THE RESPONSE IS, GOD, I GIVE

YOU ME.

WHY DOES HE WANT US IN OUR

MESS?

I DON'T HAVE A CLUE, EXCEPT

THAT HE IS LOVE.

HE ISN'T JUST LOVING.

HE IS LOVE.

HE IS EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE

BEEN LOOKING FOR AND LONGING

FOR, EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO

BE HEALED AND WHOLE.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO PRAY AND

INVITE CHRIST INTO YOUR

HEART AND BEGIN THAT

RELATIONSHIP THAT JAMIE WAS

TALKING ABOUT, CALL THE

TOLL-FREE NUMBER THAT IS ON

YOUR SCREEN RIGHT NOW:

1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS SOMEONE ON THE

OTHER END OF THAT LINE WHO

HAS ALREADY MADE THAT

COMMITMENT, WHO HAS ALREADY

PRAYED THAT PRAYER, AND THEY

WOULD LOVE TO PRAY WITH YOU

TODAY.

WE'VE GOT SOME FREE

INFORMATION TO SEND YOU ON

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO WALK

WITH JESUS, TOO.

SO CALL NOW.

PAT?

Pat: WHAT A TREMENDOUS

STORY ABOUT JAMIE.

WELL, WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

PSALM 34: "OWE TASTO TASTE

AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS

GOOD.

BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO TAKES

REFUGE IN HIM."

TOMORROW, BY THE WAY, WAS

KILIMANJARO ONLY THE

BEGINNING?

A FILM-MAKER INSPIRES OUR

RESIDENT CLIMBER, WENDY

GRIFFITH.

THAT'S WEDNESDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
