The 700 Club - June 17, 2015

After the divorce left her as a single mom of two daughters, Loretta learned to trust God, especially with her finances. Plus, the Brown family waited for a miracle after their plane crashed into the side of a mountain. Read Transcript


IN JUST THE SNAP OF A

FINGER.

AN ENGINE STALLS...

THAT'S WHEN I REALLY

KNEW WE WERE IN TROUBLE.

I DON'T THINK WE'RE GOING

TO MAKE IT.

Wendy: WITH NO CHANCE

OR RESCUE.

ONE FAMILY CLINGS TO A

WING AND A PRAYER.

GOD, I AM NOT READY TO

GO YET.

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

RAIN, RAIN, MORE RAIN.

THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL

STORM BILL ARE DUMPING

WATER ON PARTS OF TEXAS

THAT WERE DEVASTATED BY

MEMORIAL DAY FLOODING.

Wendy: THOSE WINDS

HAVE WEAKENED, BUT AS

GEORGE THOMAS REPORTS, THE

STORM'S IMPACT WILL

CONTINUE FOR DAYS AS

RESIDENTS IN SEVERAL

STATES BRACE FOR

FLASH-FLOODING.

WE SAW VERY STRONG

WINDS ON THE EAST SIDE OF

THIS THING.

George: WITH THE

STORM DOWNGRADED TO A

TROPICAL DEPRESSION,

TEXANS HAVE TO DEAL NOT

JUST WITH THE AFTERMATH OF

BILL...

ANOTHER DAY IN

PARADISE.

George: LIKE CLEANING

THESE CON DE CONDOS IN SEABROOK,

TEXAS, AND NOW HAVE MORE

RAIN, FLOODING, AND

POTENTIAL TORNADOES TO

DEAL WITH IT.

WE'RE HOPING IT WILL

NOT GET HIGHER BECAUSE IT

IS IN OUR STAIRCASE AND

OUR BALCONY.

George: TROPICAL

STORM BILL MADE LAND FORM

ABOUT 90 MILES SOUTHWEST

OF HOUSTON ON TUESDAY,

WITH MAXIMUM SUSTAINED

WINDS OF 60 MILES PER

HOUR.

PORTIONS OF TEXAS COULD

SEE THREE TO SIX INCHES OF

RAIN THROUGH WEDNESDAY,

WITH SOME ISOLATED AREAS

GETTING UP TO 12 INCHES.

ALL OF THAT RAIN IS BAD

NEWS FOR A STATE THAT IS

RECOVERING FROM TWO MONTHS

OF HISTORIC RAINS AND

FLOODING.

JUST ASK FRANK POCHASCA.

WE THOUGHT WE WERE OUT

OF THE WOODS.

George: A COUPLE OF

WEEKS AGO STORMS CAUSED

WATER TO SWELL UP FROM A

NEARBY LAKE, WASHING OUT

HIS FRONT LAWN AND

DRAINING INTO HIS HOME.

NOW RAINS FROM BILL ARE

THREATENING TO DO THE SAME

AGAIN.

MAY HAS BEEN THE WETTEST

MONTH EVER IN THE STATE'S

HISTORY.

ALL THAT RAIN MEANS MANY

LAKES AND RIVERS ARE AT

FLOOD-PRONE CAPACITY.

STORMS OVER THE MEMORIAL

DAY WEEKEND BROUGHT

WIDESPREAD FLOODING TO

TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA.

IN THIS COMMUNITY, WATER

MANAGEMENT OFFICIALS ARE

WORRYING ABOUT HOW BAD

ANOTHER WAVE OF WET

WEATHER COULD GET.

WE HAVE THREE DIFFERENT

RESERVOIRS ON THE WEST

FORK OF THE TRINITY RIVER,

AND PART OF OUR JOB IS TO

MAKE SURE WE PASS THE

WATER THROUGH ALL OF THEM

AND MINIMIZE ANY DAMAGE.

George: CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" WAS

ON THE GROUND, HELPING

VICTIMS OF THE LAST

FLOODING IN TEXAS.

WELL, TEAMS ARE BACK IN

THE REGION AGAIN,

PREPARING TO WORK WITH

LOCAL PASTORS TO HELP

RESIDENTS AND ASSIST WITH

CLEANUP.

MEANWHILE, BILL IS

EXPECTED TO WEAKEN AS IT

MOVES THROUGH TEXAS AND

INTO OKLAHOMA OVER THE

NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, GEORGE.

WELL, YOU KNOW THE

GOVERNMENT ISN'T VERY

CAREFUL WITH THE RECORDS

IT HOLDS.

AND IT HOLDS VAST

QUANTITIES OF RECORDS.

WELL, A HACKER GOT INTO

ONE OF THEM, AND IT IS A

LONG-TERM IMPACT THAT IS

WORSE THAN 9/11.

THAT'S WHAT SOME PEOPLE

ARE SAYING ABOUT THE

CYBER-THEFT OF PRIVATE

INFORMATION FROM EVERY

SINGLE FEDERAL EMPLOYEE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON

THAT STORY FROM OUR CBN

NEWS BUREAU IN WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT THE

IMPACT OF THAT

CYBER-ATTACK ON FEDERAL

EMPLOYEE RECORDS.

A REPORT SAYS IT HAS

RIPPED A GAPING HOLE IN

U.S. ESPIONAGE OFFENSES.

AS ONE WHO REPRESENTS

THE CITY THAT WAS ATTACKED

BY 9/11, I CONSIDER THIS A

FAR MORE SERVICE ONE TO

THE NATIONAL SECURITY.

WERE THE SOCIAL

SECURITY NUMBERS

INCRIPTED, YES OUR NO?

NO, THEY WERE NOT

INCRIPTED.

THERE YOU GO, NOW WE

ARE GETTING SOMEWHERE.

Efrem: THEY CAN TRACK

U.S. EMPLOYEES WITH

SPECIAL SKILLS OR DIVERSE

BACKGROUNDS.

THE INFORMATION CAN ALSO

BE USED AS LEVERAGE

AGAINST FEDERAL WORKERS

WHO HAVE RELATIVES AND

FRIENDS WHO LIVE OVERSEAS.

IT COULD PROVIDE,

ESSENTIALLY, A ROADMAP FOR

A NATION'S STATE OR

POTENTIAL TERRORIST TO

TARGET AND IDENTIFY THOSE

INDIVIDUALS THAT WORK FOR

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO

GAIN ACCESS TO OTHER

SENSITIVE ENVIRONMENTS AND

DATA THAT THEY'RE GOING

AFTER.

John: THE HACKERS ARE

BELIEVED TO HAVE STOLEN

THE INFORMATION OF SOME

FOUR MILLION FORMER AND

CURRENT FEDERAL EMPLOYEES

AND CONTRACTORS.

A MASSIVE OBAMACARE

DATA BASE IS RAISING

SECURITY AND PRIVACY

CONCERNS.

THE WAREHOUSE IS CALLED

"MITAS."

THE GOVERNMENT PLANS TO

USE IT TO KEEP THE NERVOUS

INFORMATION OF MILLIONS OF

HEALTH CARE SUBSCRIBERS

LONGER THAN NECESSARY.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

SAYS MITAS IS SECURE AND

IS ESSENTIAL TO THE SMOOTH

OPERATION OF THE HEALTH

CARE SERVICES.

Pat: THEY'RE ALL

FOULED UP, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

OUR GOVERNMENT DOESN'T

WORK.

NONE OF THE AGENCIES WORK

PROPERLY.

AND WE HAVE CONTINUOUS --

JUST A DRIP, DRIP, DRIP --

FAILURES.

AND NOW THEY HAVE THIS

GIANT DATA WAREHOUSE ON

PEOPLE WHO SIGNED UP FOR

OBAMACARE, AND IT IS BEING

HELD INDEFINITELY.

EXPERTS SAY TWO OR THREE

YEARS IS ALL YOU NEED TO

STORE IT.

AFTER THAT, THESE THINGS

SHOULD BE ERASED.

YOU DON'T WANT SOME

HISTORY OF WHAT YOUR

DOCTOR'S VISIT WAS 20

YEARS AGO.

IT WAS NOBODY'S BUSINESS.

BUT IF SOMEBODY HACKS INTO

IT, THEY CAN DESTROY YOUR

LIFE.

AND WE DON'T LIKE THAT.

HEY, THERE IS SOMETHING

ELSE HAPPENING IN THE

WORLD TODAY THAT KIND OF

CATCHES US ALL BY

SURPRISE.

THE BORDER OF ISRAEL WITH

SYRIA -- I'VE BEEN THERE,

RIGHT AT THE EDGE, IN THAT

AREA, AND THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS.

BUT NOW ISIS IS MOVING

DOWN.

AND YOU SEE WHERE THAT

DRUZE AREA IS BETWEEN

SYRIA AND JORDAN AND

ISRAEL?

NOW ISIS IS THREATENING

GENOCIDE AGAINST THE

DRUZE.

HERE IS JOHN TO TELL US

ABOUT IT.

John: THE ISRAELI

DEFENSE FORCES IS RAMPING

UP ITS PRESENCE ON THE

NORTHERN BORDER AFTER

SIGNIFICANT MOVEMENT IN

SYRIA BY ISIS AND OTHER

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS.

IT IS AS A RESULT OF ASSAD

PULLING HIS TROOPS BACK

TOWARDS DAMASCUS, THE

SYRIAN CAPITAL.

THESE CHANGES POSE DIRECT

THREATS TO ISRAEL.

Reporter: HERE AND

O THONTHE GOLAN HEIGHTS, THEY

ARE PREPARING FOR THE

THREAT THAT THOUSANDS OF

SYRIAN DRUZE MAY COME

ACROSS THEIR BOARD.

THEY SPREAD THROUGHOUT

SYRIA, HEB LEB, JORDAN,

AND ISRAEL.

THIS DRUZE DEMONSTRATIONS

IS ONE MORE SIGN OF A

GROWING CRISIS ON ISRAEL'S

NORTHERN BORDER.

THEY'RE CALLING ON SYRIAN

PRESIDENT ASSAD TO PROTECT

THOUSANDS OF THEIR FELLOW

DRUZE, LEFT VULNERABLE

AFTER HIS TROOPS LEFT THE

AREA.

THEY'RE NOW EXPOSED TO

ISIS AND A POTENTIAL

GENOCIDE.

THIS IS A PLACE CALLED

"THE SHOUTING HILL."

I'M STANDING IN ISRAEL,

AND A FEW FEET AWAY IS THE

SYRIA BORDERS.

THE DRUZE FAMILIES WOULD

COME HERE AND LITERALLY

SHOUT AT EACH OTHER BEFORE

THE AGE OF THE INTERNET.

NOW THE DRUZE ARE SHOUTING

TO THE WORLD THAT THEIR

FAMILIES INSIDE SYRIA ARE

IN DANGER, AND ISIS IS

RIGHT ACROSS THE BORDER.

WE'RE AS CLOSE TO ISIS,

FOUR KILOMETRES, AND TO

THE FIRST VILLAGE THE

DRUZE.

HERE WE CAN SEE THE FIRST

HOME.

YOU CAN SEE THE WHITE

HOME.

Reporter: THIS

JOURNALIST SAYS THE

SITUATION IS DESPERATE.

YOU ARE GETTING UPDATES

FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES

THAT THIS KIND OF FIGHT

CAN BE IN THE NEXT FEW

DAYS OR NEXT FEW HOURS.

SO WE ARE PREPARING

OURSELVES ON DIFFERENT

SIDES, TO HELP THEM AND

SUPPORT THEM.

Reporter: THAT

INCLUDES RAISING MILLIONS

OF DOLLARS TO BUY WEAPONS.

THEY'RE WAITING NOW FOR

PERMISSION FROM ISRAEL AND

JORDAN TO SEND THOSE ARMS

INSIDE SYRIA.

AND ISRAEL HAS ASKED THE

U.S. FOR HELP.

THE AMERICANS, EXACTLY,

AND ALL OF THE WEST MUST

UNDERSTAND THAT THE

FIGHTING OF THE DRUZE

NATION AND THE CHRISTIANS

IS ONE AND THE OTHER IS

FIGHTING OF THE WEST SIDE.

Reporter: H HE SAYS

ISIS WON'T STOP WITH THE

DRUZE.

THIS IS A PROBLEM OF

ALL OF THE WORLD.

BECAUSE THEY SAY IN

ARABIC, EVERY DAY, THAT

THEY WANT TO MOVE TO

EUROPE.

AND AFTER EUROPE, TO THE

UNITED STATES.

IT COULD BE THEIR AREA OF

THE WORLD.

WE MUST STOP IT THERE.

HOW WE COULD STOP IT?

TO SUPPORT IT, THE DRUZE

NATION.

Reporter: AND HE

SAYS, UNLIKE OTHER

MINORITIES IN THE REGION,

LIKE THE YAZIDIS, THE

DRUZE KNOW HOW TO FIGHT.

ALL OF US ARE VERY

PROFESSIONAL WITH

FIGHTING.

Reporter: THE

SITUATION IS SO TENSE THAT

THE I.D.F. DECLARED PART

OF THE NORTHERN BORDER A

CLOSED MILITARY ZONE FOR A

DAY.

WITH ISIS SO CLOSE, IT IS

POSSIBLE THIS BORDER AREA

COULD BECOME THE NEXT

FLASH-POINT OF THE MIDDLE

EAST.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

ON THE ISRAELI-SYRIAN

BORDER.

John: PAT, IT LOOKS

LIKE A DIRE SITUATION OVER

THERE.

Pat: IT DOES.

WE'LL SEE IF CHRIS IS

PROPHETIC ON THAT, BUT I

THINK HE IS.

IT IS SO CLOSE.

I'VE BEEN THERE.

AND YOU LOOK DOWN AND IT'S

SYRIA.

HERE YOU'RE IN THE

NORTHERN PART OF ISRAEL,

BUT THE BORDER IS SO

CLOSE.

I REMEMBER THAT WAR THAT

WAS, I THINK, IN '73,

WHERE ISRAEL TOOK KENNETRA

AND MOVED ACROSS, BUT THEY

WERE ON

EGYPT.

BUT THE DISTANCE IS SO

SMALL.

ISIS COULD OVERRUN THAT

WHOLE SITUATION AND BE AT

WAR WITH ISRAEL.

BUT IN THE MEANTIME, THE

DRUZE ARE PRETTY GOOD

PEOPLE, AND THEY'RE GOING

TO BE WIPED OUT, JUST LIKE

THE YAZIDIS, AND WHAT IS

NEEDED WORSE THAN ANYTHING

IS FOR US TO HELP THE

KURDS.

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING

TO BUILDUP THOSE

PESHMERGA FORCES.

THEY'RE THE ONLY PEOPLE

WHO WANT TOFIGHT.

NOW THE DRUZE SAY WE KNOW

HOW TO FIGHT.

WE'LL FIGHT.

GIVE US THE WEAPONS.

BUT WE NEEDUP.WAK

I THINK THE PRESIDENT AND

THE PEOPLEWASHINGTON

ARESWITCH.AT THE

THIS THING IS

DETERIORATING EVERY SINGLE

DAY.

IT GETS WORSE ANDWORSE

AND WORSE.

AND WE'RE NOT DOING MUCH

ABOUT IT.

JOHN?

John: PAT, A NEW YORK

CITY COLLEGE STUDENT HAS

BEEN ARRESTED, ACCUSED OF

PLOTTING A BOMBING ATTACK

FOR ISIS.

NEW YORK AUTHORITIES

SPOTTED HIM SCOUTING THE

GEORGE WASHINGTON BRIDGE

SEVERAL TIMES.

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WAS

ALSO ON TO HIM AFTER HE

POSTED A MESSAGE ON

TWITTER SAYING al-QAEDA

WAS BECOMING TOO MODERATE.

MEANWHILE, AUTHORITIES

HAVE ARRESTED A NEW

SUSPECT IN THE TEXAS

TERROR SHOOTING.

PROSECUTORS HAVE CHARGED A

PHOENIX AREA MAN FOR

HELPING TO PLAN THAT

ATTACK.

HE IS ALSO ACCUSED OF

WANTING TO ATTACK THE

SUPER BOWL.

> WELL, DONALD TRUMP HAS

THROWN HIS HAT INTO THE

RING FOR THE REPUBLICAN

RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE.

HE MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT

IN A LONG, COLORFUL

SPEECH, BLASTIN BLASTING

POLITICIANS WHO SAYS CAN'T

GET THINGS DONE.

HE TOLD DAVID BRODY HE IS

NOT A POLITICIAN, AND THAT

MEANS HE CAN SOLVE

AMERICA'S BIGGEST

PROBLEMS.

OUR COUNTRY IS IN BIG,

BIG, DEEP TROUBLE.

POLITICIANS ARE NEVER

GOING TO GET YOU THERE.

THEY'RE ALL TALK AND NO

ACTION.

I'M WATCHING THEM.

THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

SUN WILL RISE AND THE MOON

WILL SHINE.

CHINA IS KILLING US, AND

MEXICO IS KILLING US AT

THE BORDER AND

ECONOMICALLY.

WE'RE LOSING TO ISIS.

WE'RE GETTING KILLED.

Efrem: YOU CAN SEE

DAVID'S EXCLUSIVE

INTERVIEW WITH DONALD

TRUMP ON OTHER CANDIDATES,

JUST LOG ON TO

cbnnews.com AND LOOK FOR

HIS BLOG.

Pat: HE IS GOING

SHAKE THINGS UP.

AND HE IS GOING TO FORCE

THE OTHER GUYS TO MOVE ON

CERTAIN POSITIONS THAT

THEY ARE RELUCTANT TO DO

SO.

HE IS A MULTI-BILLIONAIRE

AND HE IS AN ASTUTE

BUSINESSMAN.

HE HAS DONE A VERY GOOD

JOB.

IT LOOKS KIND OF FLUFF

WITH THAT FUNNY HAIRDO,

BUT HE HAS BEEN EXTREMELY

SUCCESSFUL.

EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES

SEEMS TO TURN TO GOLD.

Wendy: CERTAINLY HE

IS GOING TO SHAKE THINGS

UP AND RAISE THE BAR, BUT

HOW WOULD SOMEBODY LIKE

THE DONALD, WHO IS USED TO

CALLING THE SHOTS AND

MAKING THE DECISIONS, WORK

WITH CONGRESS?

Pat: HE WON'T BE ABLE

TO.

SO THAT'S WHY I THINK IT

WILL BE HARD FOR HIM TO

WIN.

BUT YOU'RE RIGHT.

I WORKED YEARS AGO FOR

W.R. GRACE, AND PETER

GRACE WAS THE HEAD OF IT,

AND THEY DID SOMETHING

CALLED "THE GRACE

COMMISSION."

AND PETER GOT 2,000

OUTSTANDING, TOP-LEVEL

BUSINESSMEN TOGETHER.

AND THEY DID AN ANALYSIS

OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

AND THEY CAME UP WITH A

BRILLIANT PLAN.

GUESS WHAT?

Wendy: WHAT HAPPENED?

Pat: CONGRESS HAS PUT

IT ON THE SHELF.

THEY IGNORED IT TOTALLY.

THEY WANT NOTHING TO TAKE

AWAY THEIR PREROGATIVES.

THEY'VE GOT THEIR DEALS.

AND THEY WANT NOBODY

COMING IN AS A BUSINESSMAN

AND SAYING, WE CAN DO IT

BETTER.

WELL, YOU CAN.

PETER GRACE SHOWED IT, AND

MANY OTHERS HAVE SHOWED

IT.

AND, OF COURSE, THEY HAD

THAT COMMISSION THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA PUT

TOGETHER.

AND IT WAS A BRILLIANT

ANALYSIS.

AND THEY SHELVED IT.

THEY DIDN'T PAY ANY

ATTENTION TO IT.

IT WAS A BRILLIANT WAY TO

SOLVE THE BUDGET CRISIS.

THEY DON'T CARE.

THEY'VE GOT THEIR THING.

THEY WANT TO STAY IN

OFFICE.

IF THEY HAVE TO BUY VOTES,

IF THEY HAVE TO RAID THE

TREASURY, THEY DON'T CARE.

JOHN?

John: THE ISRAELI

ANTIQUITIES AUTHORITY

UNCURCHEUNCOVERED THE REMAINS OF A

15-YEAR-OLD BIZANINE

CHURCH OUTSIDE OF ISRAEL.

IT ALSO SERVED AS A ROAD

STATION FOR PILGRIMS ON

THEIR WAY TO JERUSALEM.

THE LOCATION OF THE

CHURCH IS NOT ACCIDENTAL.

IT IS BUILT BENEATH A

WATER SPRING.

AND ON THE OTHER SIDE IT

IS BUILT ON ONE OF THE

ANCIENT ROADS LEADING FROM

JERUSALEM -- BETWEEN

JERUSALEM AND THE COAST.

THIS WAS A ROAD STATION,

WHICH BESIDES GIVING

SERVICES OF FOOD AND

DRINK, IT ALSO GAVE

RELIGIOUS SERVICES.

John: THE CHURCH WAS

PART OF A SERIES OF

CHURCHES THAT SERVED

TRAVELLERS ON THEIR WAY TO

JERUSALEM.

OTHER CHURCHES DISCOVERED

ALONG THIS ROAD INCLUDE

ONE IN AMAES, WHERE THE

NEW TESTAMENT SAYS JESUS

APPEARED TO TWO OF HIS

DISCIPLES.

> WELL, THE GOLDEN STATE

WARRIORS ARE THE NBA

CHAMPIONS.

IT IS THEIR FIRST

CHAMPIONSHIP IN 30 YEARS.

THE WARRIORS WON THE FINAL

THREE GAMES, BEATING THE

CLEVELAND CAVALIERS FOR

THE TITLE LAST NIGHT.

IGUADALA WAS NAMED M.V.P.,

AND HE AND OTHER PLAYERS

SAY THEY GIVE GOD THE

GLORY FOR THE TEAM'S

ACCOMPLISHMENT.

FIRST OF ALL, GOD IS

GREAT.

GOD IS GREAT.

I WANT TO THANK ALL OF THE

CHAPLAINS FOR HELPING US

OUT.

GOD IS GREAT, FOR US TO

BE ABLE TO HAVE THIS

OPPORTUNITY.

I'LL TRY 1800 MORE WAYS TO

EXPLAIN THIS BECAUSE THIS

IS AMAZING.

John: CURRIE ALSO

TOLD ACTIVE FAITH SPORTS,

"EACH GAME IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO BE ON A

GREAT STAGE AND BE A

WITNESS FOR CHRIST.

WHEN I STEP ON THE FLOOR,

PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW WHO I

REPRESENT AND WHO I

BELIEVE IN."

CURRIE AND THE TEAM ARE

THE REAL DEAL.

THAT INTERVIEW CAN BE SEEN

AT cbnnews.com.

Pat: AMAZING.

THAT IGUODALA WAS NAMED

THE M.V.P., AND HE COMES

IN AND SAVES THE DAY OVER

AND OVER AGAIN.

LEBRON JAMES IS THE NUMBER

ONE BASKETBALL PLAYER IN

THE WORLD OR CERTAINLY IN

THE NATION.

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT

THE CAVALIERS WOULD HAVE

WON, BUT GOLDEN STATE WON

AND THEY GIVE GLORY TO

GOD.

Wendy: I LOVE HOW

EXPRESSIVE THESE SPORTS

GUYS ARE WITH THEIR FAITH.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM.

> UP NEXT, A HOME-BASED

SYNAGOGUE THAT MAY BE

FORCED TO SHUT DOWN.

IF THEY CAN SHOT THIS

SMALL ORTHODOX CHURCH

DOWN, THEY CAN SHUT DOWN

THE PRAYER MEETING, EVEN

SOMEONE WHO HAS FRIENDS

OVER FOR DINNER.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHY

THIS NEIGHBORHOOD

SYNAGOGUE IS IN A FIGHT

FOR ITS LIFE, AFTER THIS.

Pat: ETERNAL

VIGILANCE IS THE PRICE OF

LIBERTY.

JUST IMAGINE A BIBLE STUDY

YOU HOLD IN YOUR OWN HOME

IS SHUT DOWN BECAUSE OF

THE GOVERNMENT.

DOES THAT SOUND

FAR-FETCHED IN AMERICA?

WELL, NOT ANYMORE BECAUSE

GOVERNMENT IS INTERFERING

WITH THE WORSHIP OF PEOPLE

IN PRIVATE HOMES, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS A PROTECTED

RIGHT IN AMERICA.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

ONE SMALL JEWISH GROUP IN

DALLAS IS BEING SO

HARASSED IT MAY HAVE TO

COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN.

Reporter: A SMALL

HOME-BASED SYNAGOGUE IS

FIGHTING FOR ITS LIFE IN

FAR NORTH DALLAS, AND THE

OUTCOME COULD POTENTIALLY

AFFECT OTHER GROUPS THAT

WORSHIP IN HOMES.

DALLAS DEMANDED THAT HE

GET A CITY CERTIFICATE TO

OPERATE IN THIS HOME AND

SUED WHEN THE CONGREGATION

DIDN'T COMPLY.

THE CONGREGATION SAYS THE

COST IS SIMPLY TOO HIGH.

WE COULD NEVER AFFORD

IT.

Reporter: AS RABBI

YAAKOV RICH EXPLAINS, IT

IS MORE THAN JUST PAYING

FOR A PIECE OF PAPER.

IT WOULD FORCE

EVERYBODY LITERALLY TO

SELL THEIR HOMES AND MOVE

SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BE

CLOSE ENOUGH TO WALK.

IN ORTHODOX JUDAISM, WE

ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRIVE

ON THE SABBATH.

SO IF THE SYNAGOGUE COULD

NOT BE IN WALKING

DISTANCE, EVERYBODY WOULD

HAVE TO RELOCATE TO WHERE

IT WAS.

Reporter: THEY ARE A

SMALL GROUP OF RELIGIOUS

BELIEVERS MEETING IN A

HOME, NO DIFFERENT THAN

THE SMALL GROUPS THOUSANDS

OF CHRISTIANS HAVE ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

SINCE THE CITY BROUGHT

THEIR LAWSUIT, THERE HAS

BEEN VANDALISM AND

SWASTIKAS, ONE ON THE

RABBI'S CAR AND FENCES

AROUND THE AREA.

Reporter: JUSTIN

BUTTERFIELD IS THE LEAD

COUNCIL.

IF THEY CAN SHUT THIS

SMALL JEWISH

CRONOLOGYGRATIOCRONOLOGYCONGREGATION,THEY CAN SHUT DOWN PEOPLE

WHO JUST HAVE A FEW PEOPLE

OVER FOR DINNER.

Reporter: BUT SOME IN

THE AREA SEE IT

DIFFERENTLY.

THEY FEEL THEY WERE

PROMISED THEY COULD LIVE

IN A STRICTLY RESIDENTIAL

SITUATION, AND THEY ENDED

UP WITH A BUSY SYNAGOGUE

AS A NEIGHBOR.

THEY DO SERVICES TWO

TIMES A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A

WEEK.

THAT MEANS A LOT OF FOOT

TRAFFIC, AND A LOT OF CAR

TRAFFIC AS WELL.

Reporter: THAT AND

THE POTENTIAL FOR FALLING

PROPERTY VALUES, PROMPTED

DAVID SCHNEIDER TO LEAD A

NEIGHBORHOOD LAWSUIT

AGAINST TORAS CHAIM.

YOU CAN BE OPPOSED TO

SOMETHING A SYNAGOGUE DOES

WITHOUT BEING OPPOSED TO

THE SYNAGOGUE ITSELF.

Reporter: RICH SAYS

THAT LOCAL ATTACK REALLY

HURT.

THE ANXIETY OF HAVING A

MAJOR LAWSUIT, AND QUITE

POSSIBLY THE SYNAGOGUE

WOULD HAVE TO CLOSE DOWN

AND THE MEMBERS OF THE

COMMUNITY WOULD HAVE TO

SELL LIKE HOMES AND MOVE

SOMEWHERE ELSE, IT WAS TOO

MUCH TO BEAR.

Reporter: SHORT-TERM

RELIEF CAME WHEN A JUDGE

DISMISSED THE LAWSUIT, AND

THEN THE CITY SUED.

I WAS RUNNING OUT OF

MATERIALS TO SPEAK ABOUT

ON THE SABBATH MORNING,

AND SO THE CITY SUED US

AND I HAVE SOMETHING TO

TALK ABOUT AGAIN.

Reporter: NO ONE FROM

THE CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE

WOULD SPEAK WITH CBN NEWS,

BUT THEY SAID, THE CITY OF

DALLAS DOES NOT RESTRICT

THE SYNAGOGUES OR OTHER

PLACES OF WORSHIP.

PLACES OF WORSHIP,

HOWEVER, ARE NOT EXEMPT

FROM COMPLYING WITH CITY

ORDINANCES.

THEY WANT A SPRINKLER

SYSTEM INSTALLED, AND

HANDICAPPED BATHROOMS AND

MORE.

THE INTERESTING THING

IS ON THE SABBATH, NOBODY

DRIVES OR PARKS ON THE

STREET.

YOU'LL NEVER FIND A CAR.

Reporter: THOSE

FIGHTING FOR TORAS CHAIM

SAY DALLAS SHOULD DROP THE

FIGHT OR A JUDGE MAY STEP

IN AND MAKE THE CITY PAY.

I POINTED THEM TO

PREVIOUS CASES, THERE WAS

ONE IN LOS ANGELES, THAT

RESULTED IN ALMOST A

$1 MILLION VERDICT AGAINST

THE CITY.

Reporter: THAT IS

LITTLE COR COMFORT TO THE

RABBI.

GOING UP AGAINST THE

CITY HAS IS PERCEPTION OF

SOMETHING MUCH BIGGER AND

MUCH WORSE.

Reporter: WHAT IS NOT

IN DISPUTE IS THE FACT

THAT THE VERY EXISTENCE OF

THE SMALL RELIGIOUS GROUP

THAT MEETS IN THIS HOME IS

ON THE LINE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM FAR NORTH,

DALLAS.

Pat: THANKS, PAUL.

I MAY GO AGAINST THE

PREVAILING WISDOM ON THIS

ONE, BUT I HONESTLY

BELIEVE THAT THE CITY HAS

A RIGHT TO ZONE WHERE IT

WANTS TO.

AND I THINK TO STICK A

GREAT BIG CHURCH, FOR

EXAMPLE, IN THE MIDDLE OF

A RESIDENTIAL AREA, AND

YOU BRING IN ALL OF THAT

TRAFFIC, YOU BRING IN

BUSES AND ALL OF THE OTHER

STUFF, AND PROPERTY VALUES

GO IN THE TANK.

I THINK THE RESIDENTS HAVE

AN ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO SAY

YOU'RE HURTING MY PROPERTY

BADLY.

AND SURELY THERE IS A

PLACE THAT CAN ACCOMMODATE

YOU.

THIS ISN'T A LITTLE HOME

BIBLICAL STUDY.

IT IS A CHURCH.

AND IT WILL GROW.

AND IT SHOULD GROW.

AND AS IT GROWS, IT WILL

DO DAMAGE.

IT IS NOT THE SAME THING

AS A HOME BIBLE STUDY THAT

COMES OCCASIONALLY TO

SOMEBODY'S HOME AND THEY

SIT AROUND AND DRINK

COFFEE AND EAT COOKIES AND

TALK ABOUT THE BIBLE.

I THINK IT IS A DIFFERENT

MATTER.

I JUST THINK THAT IN THAT

CASE IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL

FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY TO

THINK THAT A CITY HAS THE

RIGHT TO DO SOME ZONING.

IF IT BECOMES

DISCRIMINATORY WHERE A

CHURCH CAN NEVER BUILD --

THAT'S THE WAY IT IS IN

RUSSIA, THEY ZONE THEM SO

THEY CAN NEVER BUILD -- I

DON'T THINK THAT IS GOOD.

I DON'T THINK DALLAS IS

THAT WAY.

Wendy: IT DOESN'T

SOUND LIKE IT IS

DISCRIMINATORY.

WITH THE ADDITION OF 13

PARKING PLACES HAVING TO

BE BUILT, I THINK THAT THE

RESIDENTS HAVE A

LEGITIMATE REASON --

Pat: IT WAS A

NEIGHBORHOOD AND PEOPLE

BOUGHT THEIR HOUSES, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU'RE

GOING TO TEAR IT UP AND

COST PEOPLE A LOT OF

MONEY.

I DON'T BLAME THEM FOR

OBJECTING.

Wendy: COMING UP, A

PILOT CARRYING PRECIOUS

CARGO.

THEY CRASH INTO A CANYON.

MY HEART JUST THUMPED.

I REALLY THOUGHT I KILLED

JAY ANN IN THE CRASH.

Wendy: HEAR HOW A

ROGUE CELL PHONE LEAD TO A

SERIES OF LIFE-SAVING

PRINCIPLES.

PLUS, WE'LL BE PRAYING FOR

YOU AND YOUR NEEDS AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WELL, AS A

VETERAN FIRE CAPITÁN,

BRIAN BROWN WAS USED TO

RESCUING OTHERS.

BUT WHEN HIS PLANE CRASHED

IN A REMOTE CANYON, HE

KNEW RESCUE WAS NEARLY

IMPOSSIBLE.

AND NOT ONLY DID BRIAN'S

LIFE HANG IN THE BALANCE,

BUT ALSO THE LIVES OF HIS

WIFE AND DAUGHTER.

WE CLEARED THE RIDGE

LINE, AND WHEN I SCAND THE

INSTRUMENTS, MY AIR SPEED

INDICATOR WAS READING 110

AND IT DROPPED TO 40 IN

THE SNAP OF A FINGER.

THAT'S WHEN I TOLD THE

GIRLS, I'M SORRY, I DON'T

THINK WE'RE GOING TO MAKE

IT.

I TOLD THEM I LOVED THEM

AND I SHOVED THE NOSE OF

THE PLANE DOWN INTO THE

CANYON.

Reporter: MEMORIAL

DAY, 2012, BRIAN BROWN

FLEW HIS WAY AND DAUGHTER

HEATHER FROM SACRAMENTO TO

IDAHO.

THEY WERE ON THEIR WAY TO

VISIT THEIR OLDEST

DAUGHTER, TABITHA.

HALF WAY TO THEIR

DESTINATION, A DANGEROUS

STORM FORMED AROUND THEM.

I COULD SEE THE WEATHER

CLOSING IN AROUND US.

THAT'S WHEN I REALLY KNEW

WE WERE IN TROUBLE.

THE FLIGHT ITSELF

STARTED GETTING MORE LIKE

THIS WAY AND THAT WAY,

VERY DRAMATIC, LEFT TURN,

RIGHT TURN KIND OF THING.

IT WAS REALLY SCARY.

BECAUSE WE WERE SO

CLOSE TO THE MOUNTAINS, I

WAS TRYING TO STAY UNDER

THE CLOUD LAYER BUT ABOVE

THE MOUNTAINESS TERRAIN.

IT LEFT A REALLY SMALL

MARGIN FOR US TO BE ABLE

TO FLY IN.

THERE WAS THIS OVERALL

SENSE OF STRESS IN THE

PLANE, WHICH WAS A LITTLE

HIGHER.

Reporter: AS THE

INTENSITY OF THE STORM

INCREASED, JAY ANN STARTED

TO PRAY.

SHE SAID A PRAYER, GOD,

PLEASE PUT YOUR ANGELS ON

OUR WINGS.

THIS IS A LOT SCARIER THAN

WE THOUGHT.

Reporter: MOMENTS

LATER, THE PLANE'S ENGINE

STALLED.

BRIAN POINTED THE NOSE OF

THE AIRCRAFT DOWN,

ATTEMPTING TO REGAIN AIR

SPEED AND REGAIN CONTROL.

HE TOLD HIS FAMILY HE

LOVED THEM.

WHEN HE SAID THAT, I

VERY MUCH CLOSED MY EYES,

AND I SAID, GOD, I AM NOT

READY TO GO YET.

PLEASE PROTECT ME AND MY

FAMILY.

RIGHT BEFORE WE HIT THE

BOTTOM, I COULD FEEL

CONTROL COME BACK.

AND I PULLED THE NOSE BACK

AS ABRUPTLY AS I COULD.

SO IT RAISED THE NOSE OF

THE AIRPLANE AND WE WERE

STILL FLYING.

I HIT TWO TREES WITH THE

WING TIP AND THEN WE

SMASHED BELLY FIRST INTO

THE NEXT MOUNTAIN SIDE.

THE WHOLE WORLD WAS KIND

OF BLACK FOR US.

Reporter: BRIAN WAS

KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS ON

IMPACT.

HIS HEAD HIT THE

WINDSHIELD AND HE WAS

BLEEDING HEAVILY.

I WOKE UP FROM THE

IMPACT, AND MY FIRST

THOUGHT WAS, WOW, WE'RE

ALIVE.

THANK GOD JAY ANN SAID

THAT PRAYER, AND I HAD

THOSE ANGELS ON MEYER

WINGSMY WINGSLIKE SHE ASKED FOR.

THE NEXT THING I HEARD WAS

HEATHER SCREAMING, "MAMA,"

AND WHEN I LOOKED OVER TO

WHERE JAY ANN WAS SITTING,

SHE WAS BASICALLY HANGING

LIKE A RAGDOLL.

MY HEART JUST THUMPED.

I REALLY THOUGHT I KILLED

HER IN THE CRASH.

MY MOM, I THOUGHT AT

FIRST, HAD DIED INSTANTLY

BECAUSE SHE WAS VERY LIMP

AND HANGING OVER.

I MOVED HER HEAD TO TRY

TO KEEP HER AIRWAY OPEN.

HEATHER AND I KEPT SAYING,

STAY WITH US.

I GAVE HER A KISS,

THINKING IT MIGHT BE HER

LAST ONE.

SHE TOOK A GASP OF AIR.

I DO REMEMBER WAKING UP

LONG ENOUGH TO SAY TO

BRIAN AND HEATHER, I'M

HERE.

I'M OKAY.

Reporter: BRIAN AND

JAY ANN BOTH HAD

SIGNIFICANT HEAD INJURIES.

SITTING FOR HOURS IN

FREEZING TEMPERATURES WITH

LITTLE HOPE OF RESCUE,

BRIAN REALIZED THERE WAS

NOTHING HE COULD DO TO

SAVE HIS FAM.

FAMILY.

I HAD A LOT OF HOURS TO

REFLECT ON HOW I WAS

BEFORE THE CRASH.

BEFORE I WOULD SAY, WELL,

I WAS IN CONTROL.

MY YEARS IN THE FIRE

SERVICE, THAT'S WHERE MY

POSITION WAS, AGAIN, IN

CONTROL.

AS THAT WHOLE NIGHT

PROGRESSED IT WAS VERY

OBVIOUS WHO REALLY IS IN

CONTROL.

IT WASN'T ME AT ALL.

Reporter: AS BRIAN

RELEASED THEIR SITUATION

TO GOD, SOMETHING AMAZING

HAPPENED.

AROUND MIDNIGHT THEIR CELL

PHONE LIT UP THE CABIN

WITH AN INCOMING CALL FROM

TABITHA.

WE HAD JUST GRASPED, A

PHONE.

WE DON'T KNOW WE HAD THEM

ANYMORE.

HERE WE ARE DEEP IN THIS

MOUNTAIN CANYON, AND WE

HAVE THIS ROGUE SIGNAL

THAT IS WORKING.

Reporter: THEY MISSED

TABITHA'S CALL, BUT

HEATHER IMMEDIATELY CALLED

9-1-1.

IT WAS AMAZING I WAS

ABLE TO CONNECT THROUGH.

I DIALED THE NUMBER AND IT

RANG.

I WAS, LIKE, OH, MY

GOODNESS, THANK YOU, LORD.

9-1-1, WHAT IS YOUR

EMERGENCY?

I'M IN AN AIRPLANE AND

I CRASHED AND I'M IN THE

MOUNTAINS.

Reporter: A RESCUE

PLAN WAS QUICKLY LAUNCHED

TO FIND THE TINY PLANE

SOMEWHERE IN THE MOUNTAINS

OF IDAHO.

JUST BEFORE SUNRISE, BRIAN

HEARD A SEARCH HELICOPTER

FLYING NEARBY.

HE USED A FLASH AND STROBE

APP ON HIS PHONE TO SIGNAL

THE RESCUERS.

I DID THIS AS A RESCUER

FOR OVER 25 YEARS.

AND I ALWAYS HAD ANSWERS

FOR THINGS THAT HAPPENED.

GOD WAS THERE SO OBVIOUS

BECAUSE THERE WERE THINGS

THAT WERE HAPPENING FOR US

THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE

THING THAT I KNEW HAD NO

GOOD EARTHLY EXPLANATION

AT THIS POINT.

GOD PUT ALL OF THE RIGHT

PEOPLE WITH THE RIGHT

SKILLS IN THE RIGHT PLACE

AT THE RIGHT TIME.

MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE

AFTER MIRACLE -- THERE IS

NO WAY YOU CAN EXPLAIN ANY

OF THIS WITHOUT SEEING THE

HAND OF GOD IN THIS.

IT IS ALL OVER THE PLACE.

Reporter: A FEW HOURS

LATER THEY WERE HOISTED

INTO HELICOPTERS AND FLOWN

OFF THE MOUNTAIN.

THE BROWNS ARE THANKFUL

GOD ANSWERED THEIR FEARS

THAT NIGHT.

PEOPLE ASK ME ALL OF

THE TIME, WEREN'T YOU

SCARED?

WEREN'T YOU TERRIFIED?

NO, I REALLY WASN'T.

BECAUSE AS MUCH AS I DID

NOT WANT TO DIE, I KNEW

WHERE I WAS GOING TO BE IF

I DID DIE, AND I WAS ALL

RIGHT WITH THAT.

I GUESS IT'S JUST THAT

COMFORT THAT YOU GET WHEN

YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR HEART

IS AND WHERE YOUR SOUL IS

AND WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO

SPEND ETERNITY.

I'M VERY BLESSED THAT

BOTH OF MY PARENTS ARE

STILL HERE WITH ME.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD

DO WITHOUT EITHER ONE OF

MY PARENTS.

Reporter: BRIAN WROTE

A BOOK DETAILING THE

EVENTS SURROUNDING THEIR

MIRACULOUS SURVIVAL CALLED

"RESCUED."

RESCUED HAS A COUPLE OF

DIFFERENT MEANINGS, ONE,

THE OBVIOUS,WERE

RESCUED OFF THE SIDE OF

THE MOUNTAIN AFTER SUR

SURVIVING THAT PLANE

CRASH.

BUT IT REALLY RESCUED MY

SOUL.

IT TOOK THAT MAJOR RAP ON

THE HEAD TO WAKE ME UP AND

REALLY MAKE ME SEE GOD,

AND REALIZE THAT I'M NOT

IN CONTROL AND THAT I NEED

TO GIVE THOSE PROBLEMS

AWAY, YOU KNOW, TO HIM.

AND LET HIM CONTINUE TO

HELP ME AND RESCUE ME

THROUGHOUT THE REST OF MY

LIFE.

Wendy: YOU KNOW,

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO

EXPLAIN HOW THEY SURVIVED,

OTHER THAN IT WAS A SERIES

OF MIRACLES.

AND GOD IS STILL IN THE

MIRACLE BUSINESS TODAY.

HE IS STILL IN THE HEALING

BUSINESS TODAY.

IN FACT, WE HAVE SOME

WONDERFUL PRAISE REPORTS

FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN

HEALED THAT WE WANT TO

REPORT.

Pat: GO AHEAD.

Wendy: IN 2010,

15-YEAR-OLD FARRAH WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH SCOLIOSIS.

ONE MORNING LAST MONTH HER

PARENTS RECORDED THE "700

CLUB" ON THEIR D.V.R.

THEY HEARD YOU, PAT, GIVE

THIS WORD OF KNOWLEDGE:

"THERE IS SOMEONE WITH

SCOLIOSIS, AND YOUR SPINE,

AS I SPEAK, IS GOING TO

STRAIGHTEN OUT.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

TOUCH."

SHE FELT THE POWER OF GOD

FLOWING THROUGH HER

PARENTS' HANDS AND INTO

HER BACK.

SHE FELT HER BACK MOVING

AND POPPING.

WHEN HER PARENTS FINISHED

PRAYING, FARRAH HAS BEEN

STANDING UP STRAIGHT, AND

SHE HAS BEEN STANDING

STRAIGHT EVER SINCE.

Pat: THAT IS A

MIRACLE.

Wendy: IT IS A

MIRACLE.

Pat: THIS IS SANDRA,

AND SHE LIVES IN A PLACE

CALLED NICKELSVILLE,

VIRGINIA.

SHE SUFFERED FROM

SOMETHING CALLED FIBE

FIBROMYALGIA.

SHE WAS UNABLE TO GET UP

FROM HER CHAIR WITHOUT

HELP, IT WAS SO SEVERE.

AND ON JUNE 1 OF THIS

YEAR, SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS SHOW, AND YOU, WENDY,

SAID GOD WANTS TO TOUCH

PEOPLE --

Wendy: WITH

FIBROMYALGIA.

Pat: SHE STOOD UP AND

MOVED AROUND FREELY

WITHOUT PAIN, AND SHE HAS

BEEN PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE.

AND SHE IS CALLING ALL HER

FRIENDS, TELLING THEM THAT

GOD HEALED HER.

Wendy: AWESOME.

THAT'S EXCITING.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER AND

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

GOD.

FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME,

MAY THE POWER OF GOD COME

INTO PEOPLE'S LIVES RIGHT

NOW.

LET THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT TOUCH THEM.

THANK YOU, LORD, IN JESUS'

NAME.

WENDY?

Wendy: SOMEBODY,

YOU'VE HAD CATARACT

SURGERY, BUT ONE OF YOUR

EYES NOT QUITE FEELING

RIGHT.

NOT QUITE HEALING RIGHT.

THE LORD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

JUST RECEIVE THAT HEALING

IN YOUR EYE IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

TERRIBLE COUGH.

YOU LITERALLY CRIED OUT TO

GOD, OH, PLEASE HELP ME.

GOD HAS REACHED DOWN INTO

YOUR LUNGS AND HE IS

TAKING OUT THE INFECTION,

AND THE PROBLEM IS

THEREMENT ANTHERE.AND YOU'RE GOING TO BE

COUGH-FREE.

WENDY?

Wendy: THERE IS A

LITTLE BOY, YOU'RE IN THE

HOSPITAL AND YOU'RE

FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING

ON, BUT YOU'RE FIGHTING

FOR YOUR LIFE.

THERE ARE DOCTORS AND

NURSES SWARMING AROUND

YOU.

AND GOD SAYS, DO NOT FEAR.

HE WILL LIVE AND NOT DIE.

Pat: YOU HAD SOME

KIND OF SURGERY AND A

SURGEON NICKED EITHER A

VESSEL ARTERY OR A

NERVE -- I DON'T KNOW

WHICH, BUT SOMETHING GOT

NICKED ACCIDENTALLY.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS REACHING

DOWN AND HE IS PUTTING IT

TOGETHER AND HE IS HEALING

YOU, AND YOU WILL BE

COMPLETELY WHOLE IN JESUS'

NAME.

LORD, LET THE POWER OF GOD

TOUCH THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE THAT ARE PRAYING.

LET YOUR ANOINTING BE UPON

THEM IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE

RIGHT BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

WELL, LORETTA HAGER

RETIRED AT 60 YEARS OLD,

COMPLETELY DEBT-FREE.

SO HOW DID SHE DO IT?

YOU'RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT.

Reporter: LORETTA

HAGER HAS LEARNED TO

DEPEND ON GOD FOR

EVERYTHING.

IT STARTED AFTER HER

DIVORCE, WHEN SHE BECAME A

SINGLE MOM RAISING TWO

DAUGHTERS.

I OPENED UP THE

SCRIPTURE AT HOME, ALONE

WITH GOD.

FOR MY MAKER IS MY

HUSBAND.

THE LORD ALMIGHTY IS HIS

NAME.

Reporter: WHILE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

SHE LEARNED SHE COULD

TRUST GOD WITH HER

FINANCES AS WELL.

WHICH MEANT TITHING OFF

HER SMALL INCOME AS A

SCHOOL BUS DRIVER.

GOD'S MATHEMATICS DON'T

WORK LIKE THE WORLD'S.

I DISCOVERED I GIVEIND

STILL GET TAKEN CARE OF.

Reporter: AFTER A

WHILE, SHE DECIDED TO TAKE

IT A STEP FURTHER.

I GOT REAL BOLD AND I

ASKED FATHER GOD TO DOUBLE

OUR INCOME.

AND I WAS VERY SERIOUS.

Reporter: SOON AFTER

SHE LANDED A SALES JOB AT

A CAR DEALERSHIP, EVEN

THOUGH SHE HAD NO

EXPERIENCE.

AND SURE ENOUGH HER INCOME

MORE THAN DOUBLED.

I SOLD 17 UNITS, WHICH

IS -- IF A SEASONED

SALESMAN SELLS EIGHT OR

10, HE IS OKAY.

I SOLD 17 UNITS MY FIRST

MONTH AND DIDN'T KNOW DID

DIDDLY SQUAT ABOUT WHAT I

WAS DOING.

GOD HAS BEEN SO FAITHFUL.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

BECAME A CBN PARTNER AND

OVER THE YEARS HAS

INCREASED HER GIVING.

NUMBER ONE, YOU CANNOT

GET BETTER NEWS.

I LOVE CBN NEWS.

AND, TWO, I CAN DIG WELLS

FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED WATER.

AND THAT'S EXCITING.

Reporter: LORETTA

WENT ON TO HAVE SUCCESS AT

OTHER SALES JOBS, AND BY

THE TIME SHE RETIRED AT

60, SHE WAS TOTALLY

DEBT-FREE.

TODAY SHE SAYS GOD STILL

TAKES CARE OF HER.

EVERYBODY SAYS, I WANT

TO SEE GOD.

TRUST HIM IN YOUR

FINANCES, AND YOU WILL SEE

GOD IN YOUR LIFE.

Wendy: LORETTA GETS

IT.

TITHING IS THE ONLY THING

THAT YOU CAN TEST GOD ON.

HE SAYS, TEST ME AND SEE

IF I WILL NOT POUR OUT A

BLESSING YOU CANNOT

CONTAIN.

WHEN YOU JOIN "700 CLUB,"

YOU'LL RECEIVE PAT'S

TRANSFORMING WORD."

SO WE'RE GOING TO SEND

THESE THINGS.

THE PROMPTER JUST STOPPED.

Pat: YOU'RE GOING TO

GET IT ALL.

Wendy: YOU'RE GOING

TO GET IT ALL.

Pat: IT IS TIME TO

ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS.

JULIA SAYS, QUOTE,"I'M A

GRAPHIC DESIGNER AND PRINT

SPECIALIST.

EVERY NOW AND THEN I'M

ASKED TO PRINT ISLAMIC

FLIERS AND CALENDARS.

AM I WRONG FOR DOING THIS

SINCE I'M A CHRISTIAN?"

WE'LL ANSWER THAT QUESTION

AND A WHOLE LOT MORE WHEN

WE "BRING IT ON" I "BRING IT ON."

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

AND MARIE WRITES IN "I'M A

HAPPILY MARRIED WOMAN WITH

TWO BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN,

BUT I AM IN NEED OF A

SPIRITUAL MOVE IN MY LIFE.

I'VE BEEN SAVED NOW FOR

ABOUT SIX YEARS, AND I

FEEL LIKE I'M LOST AND

ALONE IN THE WORLD.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW

I CAN GET MORE OF GOD IN

MY LIFE.

I TRY EVERY DAY, BUT I'M

SO WEAK IN THE FLESH.

PLEASE HELP."

Pat: I SUGGEST YOU GO

OFF BY YOURSELF.

TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS OFF

FROM WORK OR WHATEVER YOU

DO.

IF YOU'RE A HOUSEWIFE, SEE

IF YOU CAN'T GET A

HOUSEKEEPER OR SOMEBODY TO

LOOK AFTER YOUR KIDS FOR A

COUPLE OF DAYS.

AND TAKE THE BIBLE.

TAKE A TABLET AND A PEN,

AND I WANT YOU TO ASK GOD

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT ARE

WRONG IN YOUR LIFE, ALL OF

THE SINS.

AND I WANT YOU TO WRITE

THEM ALL DOWN.

WHEN THEY'RE ALL FINISHED,

YOU HOLD THEM UP AND SAY,

LORD, I CONFESS ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

AND I TAKE YOUR

FORGIVENESS FOR EVERY ONE

OF THEM IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AND THEN TAKE THAT PIECE

OF PAPER AND BURN IT UP,

GET RID OF IT.

THAT'S HOW FAR GOD IS

GOING TO TAKE YOUR SINS

AWAY.

THEN I WANT YOU TO BEGIN

TO PRAISE THE LORD.

I WANT YOU TO THANK HIM.

AND THEN FROM THAT MOMENT

ON, EVERY DAY, WHEN YOU

GET UP TO THE FIRST THING

YOU'RE DOING, YOU'RE

TALKING TO THE LORD AND

YOU'RE READING THE

SCRIPTURES.

AND THE BIBLE HAS BECOME A

PART OF YOUR LIFE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, HOW

CAN A YOUNG MAN CLEANSE

HIS WAY?

AND THE BIBLE SAYS BY

TAKING HEED ACCORDING TO

HIS WORD.

YOU'LL CLEAR ALL OF THAT

JUNK OUT OF YOUR LIFE IF

YOU DO JUST WHAT I SAY.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: JULIA SAYS,

"PATPAT, I'M A GRAPHIC DESIGN

ARTIST AND I'M A PROUD

CHRISTIAN.

I HAVE FRIENDS WHO YOU

MUSLIM.

THEY LOVE THE GRAPHIC

DESIGN WORK I DO.

EVERY NOW AND THEN I'M

ASKED TO CREATE DESIGNS IN

PRINTING OF THEIR ISLAMIC

CALENDARS, ETC.

I WILL DO IT FOR A FEE.

AM I WRONG FOR DOING THIS

SINCE I'M A CHRISTIAN?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH

IS SIN.

BUT I THINK IN A CASE LIKE

THAT, THAT IS YOUR

PROFESSION.

IF THEY ASK YOU TO CREATE

RADICAL LITERATURE TO

RECRUIT YOUNG AMERICANS TO

GO FIGHT FOR ISIS, THEN,

OF COURSE YOU SHOULDN'T DO

THAT.

BUT IF THEY'RE HAVING A

MOSQUE OR SOMETHING AND

THEY WANT YOU TO DO A

CALENDAR FOR THEM, I DON'T

SEE IT AS ANYTHING WRONG

WITH THAT.

BUT, AGAIN, IT IS IN YOUR

OWN HEART.

WHATEVER IS NOT OF FAITH

IS A SIN.

THE QUESTION IS WHAT DO

YOU FEEL?

NOT WHAT I TELL YOU, BUT

WHAT DO YOU FEEL?

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "I'M A BELIEVER IN

JESUS CHRIST AND HAVE

FAITH LARGER THAN A

MUSTARD SEED, BUT SADLY

MOST OF MY PRAYERS HAVE

BECOME DISAPPOINTMENTS AND

HAVE GONE UNANSWERED.

I FEEL HOPELESS.

WHAT CAN I DO?

WILL YOU PRAY FOR ME?"

Pat: IF YOU LOOK AT

JAMES, IT SAYS YOU PRAY,

BUT YOU PRAY AMISS.

ARE YOU ASKING GOD, I WANT

A MILLION DOLLARS, AND YOU

DON'T GET A MILLION, SO

GOD IS NOT ANSWERING YOUR

PRAYER -- I DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU'RE ASKING FOR.

BUT START PRAYING, I WANT

TO GLORIFY YOU.

LORD, I WANT MY LIFE TO

GLORIFY YOU.

LET ME BE IN CONFORMITY

WITH YOUR WILL.

GOD, LET ME BE PART OF

YOUR PLAN.

YOU PRAY THAT AND WATCH

WHAT HAPPENS.

YOU'LL HAVE THE ANSWER TO

YOUR PRAYER AND A WHOLE

LOT MORE.

Wendy: MICHAEL SAYS,

"PAT, THE BIBLE SAYS WE

ARE FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY MADE.

WHAT DOES "FEARFULLY" MEAN

IN THIS INSTANCE?"

Pat: YOU LOOK AT

SOMETHING AND YOU QUOTE

STAND IN AWE.

IF YOU LOOK AT YOUR BODY

AND THE INCREDIBLE

INTRICACY THAT HAS MADE UP

YOU, YOUR CAPILLARIES,

YOUR BRAIN, ALL OF THE

THINGS THAT MAKE UP YOU.

IT IS A SOURCE OF AWE AND

WONDER.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

IT ISN'T THAT YOU'VE GOT

TO BE SCARED OF IT.

THAT'S NOT WHAT FEARFUL

IS.

IT IS AWESOME.

I STAND IN AWE OF THE

GLORY OF GOD.

WHAT ELSE?

Wendy: AMEN.

MICHAEL SAYS -- NO,

SUZANNE SAYS, "I ALWAYS

THOUGHT THAT OUR LOVED

ONES WHO WENT TO BE WITH

THE LORD WOULD KNOW US

WHEN WE GET TO HEAVEN.

READING ISAIAH 26: 14 SAYS

YOU HAVE WIPED OUT ALL

MEMORY OF THEM.

WHAT ABOUT THIS?"

Pat: YOU'RE READING

IT WRONG.

THAT PART OF ISAIAH IS

TALKING ABOUT WICKED

KINGS.

NOT YOUR LOVED ONES, BUT

WICKED KINGS.

AND THEN HE GOES ON TO

SAY -- READ IT FURTHER

DOWN THE LINE.

AND WHAT IT WILL SAY IS

BUT TOGETHER WE'RE GOING

TO LIVE AND PRAISE THE

LORD.

YES, YOU'LL KNOW YOUR

LOVED ONES IN HEAVEN.

LOOK AT THE STORY THAT

JESUS GAVE ABOUT THE RICH

MAN IN LAZARUS, AND THE

RICH MAN DIED.

LAZARUS DIED.

THE RICH MAN COULD SEE

LAZARUS.

HE WAS TALKING TO ABRAHAM.

HE KNEW HE HAD BROTHERS

BACK ON THIS EARTH.

OF COURSE YOU KNOW PEOPLE.

YOU'VE GOT TO READ THE

CONTEXT OF THESE THINGS.

HE IS TALKING ABOUT WICKED

KINGS.

THEY WILL PERISH.

Wendy: MARGIE SAYS,

"IS IT A SIN TO PLAY THE

LOTTERY.

IF SO, PLEASE, WHERE IS

THE SCRIPTURE IN THE

BIBLE."

Pat: THE SCRIPTURE IN

THE BIBLE SAYS "THOU SHALL

NOT TEMPTL TEMPT THE LORD THY

GOD."

MOST PEOPLE LAY THE

LOTTERY FOR KICKS.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO

LOSE YOUR MONEY.

YOU MIGHT AS WELL BUY A $5

CUP OF COFFEE AT STARBUCKS

AND DO IT THAT WAY.

Wendy: YOU HAVE A

BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING

STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.

BUT STAND IN LINE AT

7-ELEVEN --

Pat: IS IT A SIN?

NO, BUT IT'S STUPID.

GOD WILL FORGIVE SIN, BUT

STUPID IS FOREVER.

Wendy: CARLA SAYS, "I

HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT

ISRAEL CLAIMING JERUSALEM

AS THEIR CAPITAL.

JERUSALEM IS HOME TO THE

HOLY SITES OF JUD JUDAISM AND

CHRISTIANITY.

SHOULD WE GIVE ALL POWER

TO ISRAEL?

ARE CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS

OUT OF LUCK WHEN IT COMES

TO VISITING THEIR HOLY

SITES?"

Pat: WHAT IS THE

CAPITAL OF SAUDI ARABIA?

IT'S RIAD, ISN'T IT.

WHAT IS THE CAPITAL OF THE

EMIRATES?

WHAT IS THE CAPITAL OF

KUWAIT?

IT IS NOT JERUSALEM.

JURS IS THJERUSALEM IS THE CAPITAL

OF ISRAEL.

IT WAS TAKEN BY THE KING

DAVID IN THE YEAR 1,000.

THE CLAIM OF THESE OTHERS

IS TENUOUS AT BEST.

AND THE JEWS HAVE SAID,

LOOK, WE WILL PRESERVE IT

SO ALL FAITHS CAN WORSHIP

HERE.

IF THE MUSLIMS GET IT,

THEY WILL NOT LET ANYBODY

WORSHIP THERE.

THEY HAVE CLOSED OFF THE

TEMPLE MOUNT TO OTHER

RELIGIONS.

THEY'VE GOT THEIR OWN

CAPITAL.

THE CAPITAL OF AMERICA IS

WASHINGTON.

WE DON'T TAKE OVER

JERUSALEM.

I DON'T NEED OTHER

CAPITAL.

MY CAPITAL IS IN

WASHINGTON.

IN VIRGINIA, IT IS

RICHMOND.

THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM

PROVERBS: "COMMIT YOUR

WORKS TO THE LORD AND YOUR

PLANS WILL BE

ESTABLISHED."

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
