The 700 Club - September 15, 2015

Best-selling author Max Lucado will inspire you to get out of your rut and start living a “Promised Land Life.” Plus, Shirley was miraculously healed of stage IV cancer. Read Transcript


Wendy: YOUR BEST DAYS

ARE AHEAD OF YOU, AND MAX

LUCADO EXPLAINS WHY.

PLUS, SHE HAD STAGE FOUR

CANCER.

THE TUMOR IN MY RIGHT

BREAST WAS ABOUT HALF THE

SIZE OF MY FIST.

Wendy: AND SHE HAD 90

DAYS TO LIVE.

IT WOULD BE EASIER TO

LAY DOWN AND DIE.

Wendy: WATCH A

MIRACLE UNFOLD.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

Wendy: "SEVEN DAYS

ABLAZE" CONTINUES ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

DELIGHTED TO SEE TERRY

BACK WITH US.

AND YOU'VE BEEN PLAYING

GRANDMOTHER.

YOU'VE BEEN PLAYING MOTHER

OF THE BRIDE --

Terry: I HAVE.

MY NEW GRANDDAUGHTER,

SIDNEY DIANE THE FOURTH,

AND I HAVE NOW TWO BOYS

AND TWO GIRLS, AND A

WEDDING THIS COMING

SATURDAY.

SO LIFE IS A LITTLE FULL.

Pat: THAT'S THE WAY

IT IS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE

HATCHING AND MATCHING.

Terry: WHAT IS IT

THEY SAY, TOO LATE SMART,

TOO SOON OLD.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: ANY WAY, IT

HAS BEEN A WONDERFUL TIME

AWAY, BUT I MISSED NOT

BEING HERE.

Pat: WE'RE DELIGHTED

TO SEE YOU.

AND YOU'VE GOT A WEDDING

COMING UP THIS WEEKEND.

Terry: THIS WEEKEND.

MY DAUGHTER ALYSSA IS

GETTING MARRIED.

Pat: WE WANT TO TALK

ABOUT A SOCIETY THAT DON'T

LIKE WEDDINGS TOO MUCH,

AND THEY'RE COMMITTING

RACIAL SUICIDE.

YOU'LL FIND IT

INTERESTING.

BUT THIS TROUBLE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST IS BECAUSE OF

THE WEAKNESS THAT THE

AMERICANS ARE SHOWN.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU LAY A

GOOD FEAST ON THE TABLE

AND YOU'RE NOT STRONG

ENOUGH TO DEFEND IT, DON'T

WORRY THAT A BEAR COMES IN

AND EATS YOUR LUNCH.

BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN SYRIA.

THE PENTAGON SAYS THAT

RUSSIA HAS ENGAGED IN A

MILITARY BUILDUP.

AND THEY SAY THEY MAY SET

UP AN AIR BASE IN THAT

COUNTRY.

THEY'RE LOADING TANKS,

GREAT BIG PLANES COMING IN

WITH TANKS AND OTHER HEAVY

EQUIPMENT.

YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT

THAT.

Terry: THEY HAVE SENT

IN, AS YOU SAID, TANKS AND

ARTILLERY, AND MILITARY

FLIGHTS ARE ARRIVING EVERY

DAY WITH MORE SUPPLIES.

DALE HURD HAS THAT STORY.

Reporter: WITH AN OLD

ALLY, BASHAR al-ASSAD,

THE RUSSIANS ARE BUILDING

A STRONG MILITARY PRESENCE

NEAR THIS SYRIAN NAVAL

PORT.

WE, LIKE YOU, ARE

WATCHING THIS WITH

CONCERN.

WE DON'T TRULY UNDERSTAND

YET WHAT IT IS THAT RUSSIA

IS GOING TO DO IN SYRIA.

WE CONTINUE TO MONITOR

THIS CLOSELY.

THERE IS A DEGREE OF

UNCERTAINTY ABOUT THEIR

INTENTIONS THAT CONTINUES

TO CONCERN US.

Reporter: BUT IN

POINT OF FACT, U.S.

OFFICIALS HAVE A VERY GOOD

IDEA ABOUT WHAT RUSSIA IS

UP TO IN SYRIA.

THEY'RE BUILDING A FORWARD

OPERATING BASE, THAT WILL

HOST RUSSIAN COMBAT

AIRCRAFT, AND HOUSING FOR

AS MANY AS 1500 RUSSIAN

MILITARY PERSONNEL.

ADVISORS, INSTRUCTORS,

LOGISTICS PERSONNEL AND

PILOTS, ALONG WITH FIS

SOPHISTICATED WEAPONS.

PENTAGON OFFICIALS HAVE

TOLD THE PRESS THAT RUSSIA

HAS ALREADY SENT ARTILLERY

AND SEVEN T-90 TANKS TO

THE SYRIAN AIR FIELD NEAR

LATIKIA.

CRITICS CALL THIS ANOTHER

BLUNDER BY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

U.S. PRESIDENTS DATING

BACK TO HARRY S. TRUMAN,

HAVE USED THREATS TO KEEP

THE RUSSIAN ARMY FROM

GAINING INFLUENCE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

BUT THAT MAY BE PRECISELY

WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW.

PERHAPS BECAUSE THE

KREMLIN USED BARACK OBAMA,

IN THE WORDS OF A WALL

STREET JOURNAL EDITORIAL,S

A "PUPUSHOVER."

Pat: THEY'RE TAKING

OVER SYRIA.

THEY'LL HAVE A PORT, AN

AIR FIELD, THEY'LL HAVE

TROOPS AND TANKS.

AND THEN WHO IS GOING TO

BE ABLE TO BEAT THEM?

THEN THEY CAN EXPAND FROM

THERE INTO TURKEY, OR THEY

CAN EXPAND FROM THERE INTO

IRAQ OR WHEREVER, AND IN

THAT TROUBLED AREA,

SUDDENLY RUSSIA IS GOING

TO BE THE DOMINANT PLAYER.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T

KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING?

OF COURSE WE KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING, IF WE HAVE

ANY SENSE AT ALL, AND IT

IS NOT PLEASANT.

BUT WE'VE GOT A WOOS

RUNNING THE COUNTRY.

HERE AT HOME, IT LOOKS

LIKE A COMPRISE IN THE

SHOWDOWN IN KENTUCKY OVER

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

LICENSES.

ISN'T IT AMAZING WITH ALL

OF THE STUFF GOING ON IN

THE WORLD, WE'VE GOT TO

WORRY ABOUT A CLERK IN A

COURT IN KENTUCKY ISSUING

LICENSES TO HOMOSEXUALS TO

GET MARRIED.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

STORY.

Wendy: ROWAN COUNTY

KENTUCKY IS ISSUING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES

WITHOUT CLERK KIM DAVIS'

NAME ON THEM.

A LESBIAN COUPLE RECEIVED

THEIR LICENSE YESTERDAY.

INSTEAD OF USING DAVIS'

NAME, THE LICENSE READS,

"PURSUANT TO A FEDERAL

COURT ORDER."

DAVIS SPENT FIVE DAYS IN

JAIL FOR REFUSING TO ISSUE

GAY MARRIAGE LICENSES

UNDER HER NAME BECAUSE OF

HER CHRISTIAN FAITH.

HER ATTORNEY SAYS THIS IS

AN ACCEPTABLE SOLUTION.

THE LICENSE THAT WENT

OUT TODAY DOES NOT VIOLATE

KIM DAVIS' CONSCIENCE.

IF SATISFACTORY TO THE

PLAINTIFFS AND THE COURT,

THEN I THINK WE WILL HAVE

FOUND THAT WIN-WIN

SOLUTION WE HAVE BEEN

ASKING FOR ALL ALONG.

Wendy: KENTUCKY

GOVERNOR STEVE BASHIR

AGREES THE NEW LICENSES

ARE LEGAL.

> BERNIE SANDERS IS

LEADING HILLARY CLINTON IN

BOTH NEW HAMPSHIRE AND

IOWA, AND HE CONTINUES

MAKING GROUNDS IN NATIONAL

POLLS AS WELL.

BUT SANDERS IS NOT JUST

COURTING THE USUAL

DEMOCRATIC SUPPORTERS.

HE SPOKE AT LIBERTY

UNIVERSITY ON MONDAY.

AT LIBERTY, HE ADDRESSED

THE ISSUE OF INCOME

INEQUALITY, REFERRING TO

IT AS THE NATIONAL IN

JUSTICE THAT SHOULD UNITE

PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE

POLITICAL SPECTRUM.

WE LIVE -- AND I HOPE

ALL OF YOU KNOW THIS -- IN

THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRY IN

THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

BUT MOST AMERICANS DON'T

KNOW THAT BECAUSE ALMOST

ALL OF THAT WEALTH AND

INCOME IS GOING TO THE TOP

1%.

Wendy: AND ACCORDING

TO AN ESTIMATE BY THE

"WALL STREET JOURNAL,"

SANDER'S PROPOSALS WOULD

COST THE NATION

$18 TRILLION IN NEW

SPENDING OVER THE NEXT

DECADE, INCLUDING A

GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE

PROGRAM THAT COVERS EVERY

AMERICAN.

ON TOMORROW'S "THE 700

CLUB," WE'LL HAVE AN

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW OF

DONALD TRUMP BY DAVID

BRODY.

DO YOU THINK SANDERS

CONVERTED ANYBODY AT

LIBERTY?

Pat: WHO KNOWS.

BUT I'M AMAZED HE IS DOING

AS WELL AS HE IS.

FREE ENTERPRISE HAS ALWAYS

BEEN CONSIDERED THE BEST

WAY TO WEALTH, NOT THROUGH

SOCIALISM.

THERE IS NO SOCIALIST

COUNTRY ANYWHERE IN THE

WORLD THAT HAS SUCCEEDED.

IT NULLIFIES

DECISION-MAKING, IT

CRIPPLES INDUSTRY, IT

SUCKS THE TAXES AWAY FROM

THE MOST PRODUCTIVE

MEMBERS OF SOCIETY, AND IT

MEANS GOVERNMENT INTRUSION

IN EVERY PHASE OF YOUR

LIFE.

AND THAT'S WHAT A

SOCIALIST WANTS TO DO.

AND THE AMAZING THING TO

ME IS THAT BECAUSE OF THE

WEAKNESS OF THE

FRONT-RUNNER IN THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY, THIS MAN

IS GAINING SUCH TRACTION.

BUT THERE HE IS IN

LIBERTY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT LIBERTY

WANTS TO DO WITH HIM, BUT

THEY HAD A BIG SHOW.

Wendy: NORTH KOREA

SAYS IT HAS UPGRADED AND

RESTARTED ALL OF ITS

NUCLEAR BOMB FUEL

PRODUCTION PLANTS SO IT

CAN PRODUCE MORE AND

BETTER NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

THAT CAME A DAY AFTER THE

NORTH ANNOUNCED IT WILL

LAUNCH NEW SATELLITES.

ANALYSTS SAY THE

BACK-TO-BACK WARNINGS ARE

DESIGNED TO SPUR TALKS

WITH THE UNITED STATES AND

EVENTUALLY LEAD TO

CONCESSIONS FOR THE NORTH,

WHICH IS A VERY POOR

COUNTRY.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING, PAT?

Pat: THEY'RE SPENDING

ABOUT A THIRD OF THEIR

TOTAL G.D.P. ON DEFENSE,

AND IT IS JUST

UNBELIEVABLE.

THEY'RE IN DESPERATE NEED

OF FOOD, SHELTER,

CLOTHING, ALL OF THAT.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY OF

THOSE THINGS.

BUT THEY SPEND ALL OF

THEIR MONEY ON THEIR ARMY.

AND THE ARMY IS WELL-FED

AND WELL-PROVISIONED, AND

AS LONG AS THE ARMY IS

SAFE, THEN THE RULING

POWER IS SAFE.

YOU KNOW, WENDY, SOONER OR

LATER IT'S GOING TO BLOW

UP.

I DON'T KNOW WHEN, BUT IT

IS GOING TO BLOW UP.

THE IRANIANS WILL HAVE A

BOMB.

THE NORTH KOREANS HAVE A

BOMB, THE PAKISTANIS HAVE

BOMBS, THE INDIANS HAVE

BOMBS, AND THE EGYPTIANS

AND THE SAUDI ARABIANS

WILL BE GETTING THEM.

AND BEFORE LONG, THERE IS

GOING TO BE A MISTAKE.

AND ONE OF THOSE THINGS IS

GOING TO BLOW UP, AND IT

IS GOING TO INCINERATE

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, AND

THEN THERE WILL BE A

RETALIATION.

WE HAVE NEIGHBOR SHIPS,

SUBMARINES, LOADED WITH

ENOUGH FIRE POWER TO

LITERALLY I INCINERATE THE

ENTIRE SOVIET UNION, AND

THEY KNOW THAT.

WHAT IF THE NORTH KOREANS

GET OUT OF HAND AND WE

SAY, WE'VE HAD ENOUGH OF

THIS AND BANG, THEY PUSH

THE BUTTON AND AWAY WE GO.

IT IS A FREIGH FRIGHTENING

PROSPECT.

WENDY?

Wendy: IN HEALTH

NEWS, THE MEDITERRANEAN

DIET WITH FOUR EXTRA

TABLESPOONS OF OLIVE OIL

ADAY COULD BE A GOOD WAY

FOR WOMEN TO CUT DOWN ON

THEIR RISK OF BREAST

CANCER.

THE DIET CONSISTS LARGELY

OF FRUITS, VEGETABLES, AND

FISH, ALONG WITH OLIVE

OIL.

SOME EXPERTS HAVE

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STUDY,

BUT OTHER RESEARCH HAS

SHOWN THE BENEFITS OF THE

MEDITERRANEAN DIET.

AND EXPERTS RECOMMEND

EXERCISE, ALONG WITH A

HEALTHY DIET, TO KEEP DOWN

THE RISK OF CANCER AND

OTHER SERIOUS DISEASES.

PAT?

Pat: TO THAT, I SAY

AMEN.

OLIVE OIL, VERY GOOD.

MONO UN7 NEWMONOUNSATURATED FATS.

DO YOU TAKE FISH OIL?

Terry: I DO.

Pat: THAT'S WHY

YOU'RE SO HEALTHY.

Terry: I'M TRYING TO

KEEP UP WITH YOU.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

LONG WAY TO GO.

14 GRANDCHILDREN AND SEVEN

GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN.

> WE'RE GOING TO TALK

ABOUT A COUNTRY THAT

DOESN'T WANT TO GET

FRUITFUL AND THEY'RE

DYING.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP,

THEY'RE JUST NOT

INTERESTED IN MARRIAGE OR

SEX, SO MORE PEOPLE IN

JAPAN ARE DYING THAN BEING

BORN.

FIND OUT WHAT THIS MEANS

FOR THEIR FUTURE AND OURS,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: YOU KNOW, BABIES

ARE IMPORTANT.

AND YOU DO AWAY WITH

BABIES, AND IT CAN HAVE

GREAT CONSEQUENCES.

JAPAN IS A CASE IN POINT.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

POWERFUL AND INFLUENTIAL

COUNTRIES ON EARTH, WITH

THE THIRD LARGEST ECONOMY

IN THE WORLD.

BUT NOW THE NATION OF

JAPAN IS DYING.

THE POPULATION IS RAPIDLY

GETTING OLDER AND NOT

ENOUGH BABIES ARE BEING

BORN TO REPLENISH IT.

OUR GEORGE THOMAS ACTUALLY

WENT TO TOKYO FOR AN

INDEPTH LOOK AT HOW THESE

CHANGES WILL AFFECT THE

FUTURE OF JAPAN AND THE

WORLD ITSELF.

George: JAPAN IS

SHRINKING, LITERALLY.

INSIDE THE PACIFIC ISLAND

NATION, MORE PEOPLE ARE

DYING THAN BEING BORN.

I'M SCARED FOR THE

FUTURE OF MY CHILDREN AND

MY COUNTRY.

George: A DEMOGRAPHIC

TIME BOMB HAS ALREADY

EXPLODED.

THREATENING TO CRIPPLE THE

WORLD'S THIRD LARGEST

ECONOMY.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT

YOUNG WOMEN ARE NOT HAVING

ENOUGH CHILDREN TO KEEP

OUR COUNTRY GOING.

George: JAPAN'S

POPULATION HAS SHRUNK BY A

RECORD ONE MILLION SINCE

2008.

AT THE SAME TIME, THE

JAPANESE ARE LIVING

LONGER.

JAPAN IS HOME TO THE

FASTEST-AGING SOCIETY IN

THE ENTIRE WORLD.

THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY

33 MILLION PEOPLE OVER THE

AGE OF 65.

THAT'S ROUGHLY 25% OF THE

COUNTRY.

AND EXPERTS WARN THAT

NUMBER COULD REACH AS HIGH

AS 40%.

WE'RE DEALING WITH AN

UNPRECEDENTED SITUATION.

NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE

WORLD IS FACING SUCH A

CRISIS.

George: THIS MAN IS

HEAD STATISTICIAN AT

JAPAN'S NATIONAL INSTITUTE

OF POPULATION.

HE SAYS IF THE SITUATION

DOESN'T CHANGE, AND CHANGE

DRAMATICALLY, JAPAN'S

POPULATION WILL DROP FROM

127 MILLION TODAY TO

107 MILLION IN 2040.

87 MILLION BY 2060, AND A

MERE 46 MILLION BY 2100.

AND THE AGE WILL ONLY

CLIMB.

WE'RE PREDICTING BY 2060,

46% OF THE POPULATION WILL

BE 5BE 65 OR OLDER.

George: IT CREATED AN

AGENCY TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN.

BUT A STUDY THIS YEAR

SHOWS THE JAPANESE JUST

AREN'T INTERESTED IN SEX

OR MARRIED.

A RECORD 50% OF MARRIED

COUPLES SAID THEY STOPPED

HAVING SEX.

AMONG THE MAIN REASONS,

21% OF MEN SAID THEY WERE

TOO TIRED AFTER WORK.

23% OF WOMEN SAID SEX WAS

BOTHERSOME.

THIS IS WHY JAPAN IS

KNOWN AS THE COUNTRY WITH

VERY FEW CHILDREN.

George: AND HE

DISCOVERED THAT MILLIONS

OF JAPANESE AREN'T EVEN

DATING.

A SURVEY HE DID IN 2011

FOUND 61% OF UNMARRIED MEN

AND 45% OF WOMEN IN THEIR

20s AND 30s WERE NOT

IN ANY KIND OF RO ROMANTIC

RELATIONSHIP.

AND THEY'RE CHOOSING TO

REMAIN UNMARRIED.

George: A SENTIMENT

SHARED BY SEVERAL YOUNG

PEOPLE ON THE STREETS OF

TOKYO.

THERE ARE MORE WOMEN

WORKING TODAY THAN EVER

BEFORE, AND THAT'S GOOD.

BUT THIS ALSO MEANS THAT

WOMEN ARE DELAYING OR

CHOOSING NOT TO GET

MARRIED.

LIFE IN THE CITY IS

VERY EXPENSIVE.

TRYING TO START A FAMILY

OR HAVING CHILDREN WILL

MAKE IT EVEN MORE

CHALLENGING.

George: THE STRAIN OF

FALLING BIRTH RATES, A

SHRINKING LABOR FORCE AND

LONGER LIFE SPANS IS

EVIDENT AT THIS CHRISTIAN

NURSING HOME WEST OF

TOKYO.

HE DOESN'T HAVE THE STAFF

TO CARE FOR THE ELDERLY.

HE MUST RELY ON CHURCH

VOLUNTEERS, MANY OF WHOM

ARE OVER 65 THEMSELVES.

WE HAVE OLDER PEOPLE

LOOKING AFTER THE VERY

OLD.

THIS CRISIS IS PUTTING A

LOT OF PRECIOUS ON THE

GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETY TO

CARE FOR THE AGING.

George: IN THE NEXT

25 YEARS, EXPERTS SAY HALF

OF JAPAN'S TOWNS AND

CITIES COULD LOSE MANY OF

THEIR YOUNG PEOPLE,

ESPECIALLY WOMEN IN THEIR

20s AND 30s, AS THEY

FLEE TO BIG CITIES,

LEAVING RETIREES BEHIND.

TOSHI MATIMOTO ALREADY

FEELS THE IMPACT.

THERE IS NOT MANY

CHILDREN COMING TO THE

CHURCH ANYMORE.

AND IT MEANS THE CHURCH

WILL HAVE TO CLOSE SOME

DAY BECAUSE THERE WON'T BE

ENOUGH PEOPLE TO SUPPORT

THE CHURCH ANYMORE.

George: HE PASTORS A

SMALL CHURCH ON THE

OUTSKIRTS OF TOKYO.

THE MAJORITY OF THOSE WHO

ATTEND ARE OVER 70 YEARS

OLD.

LIKE THE TAKITAS, WHO HAVE

BEEN MARRIED FOR 52 YEARS.

YOUNG PEOPLE WORK SO

HARD, THEY DON'T HAVE TIME

TO SOCIALIZE OR START A

FAMILY.

WE ARE PRAYING THAT THIS

CHANGES.

George: MORIMOTO AND

OTHER PASTORS ENCOURAGE

YOUNG PEOPLE TO MOVE TO

TOWN.

OUR LOCAL PASTORS HERE

HAVE A VISION TO CREATE

MORE CHRISTIAN HOMES IN

THIS COMMUNITY, SO THEY'RE

PROVIDING A MATCH-MAKING

BETWEEN CHURCHES TO

ENCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE TO

GET MARRIED AND HAVE A

CHRISTIAN HOME.

George: THIS IS

SUGAMO, A COMMUNITY NORTH

OF TOKYO.

WHERE THE MAJORITY OF THE

FOLKS WHO LIVE IN THESE

COMMUNITIES ARE OVER THE

AGE OF 65.

WHILE SOME EXPERTS SAY THE

SOLUTION TO JAPAN'S

PROBLEMS ARE ROBOTS AND

FOREIGN IMMIGRATION.

LEADING THE CHARGE IS

68-YEAR-OLD ATSUKO, WHO

RUNS A FUND IN TOKYO.

A ROBOT FOR ELDERLY

CARE.

George: HE IS

INVESTING MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN COMPANIES TO

DEVELOP ROBOTS TO ASSIST

THE ELDERLY.

I'M INTERESTED IN BODY

SUIT TECHNOLOGY THAT THE

ELDERLY CAN USE TO HELP

THEM MOVE AROUND.

George: HE IS ALSO

CALLING FOR LARGE-SCALE

FOREIGN IMMIGRATION, OR

ELSE HE SAYS JAPAN WILL

FACE AN ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

BUT THE IDEA OF OPENING

THE COUNTRY UP TO

FOREIGNERS IS NOT A

POPULAR ONE.

I'M NOT AGAINST

FOREIGNORS, BUT THIS IS A

JAPANESE PROBLEM AND WE

NEED TO SOLVE IT.

George: AND JAPAN, BY

THE WAY, ISN'T THE ONLY

SOCIETY GETTING OLD FAST.

MOODY'S SAYS IN THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS, 1 13 COUNTRIES,

INCLUDING FRANCE AND

SWEDEN, WILL BE SUPER

AGED.

THE UNITED NATIONS WILL

REACH THAT MILESTONE BY

2030, ALONG WITH 34 OTHER

COUNTRIES.

RIGHT NOW JAPAN LEADS THE

PACK.

AND KANEKO SAYS IF TRENDS

DON'T CHANGE AND THE

COUNTRY CANNOT QUICKLY

FIND SOLUTIONS, THE

CONSEQUENCES WILL BE

DEVASTATING.

THE IMPACT OF OUR HOUR

RAPIDLY AGING SOCIETY WILL

AFFECT EVERY AREA OF OUR

COUNTRY.

George: GEORGE

THOMAS, CBN NEWS, TOKYO.

Pat: FANTASTIC STORY.

I'VE BEEN WARNING ABOUT

THIS FOR DECADES.

AND FROM SOME OF THE

LIBERALS, I WAS LAUGHED

AT.

ONE COLUMNIST SAID PAT

ROBERTSON SEEMS TO THINK

THAT THE FEMALE WOMB IS

THE PROPERTY OF THE STATE.

THE TRUTH IS, THE

BABIES -- THESE ARE THE

WORKERS OF THE FUTURE.

THESE ARE THE ONES WHO

FORM HOUSEHOLDS, BUY

FURNITURE, BUILD HOUSES,

MAKE FAMILIES.

AND WHEN YOU STOP HAVING

BABIES -- AND WE HAVE

SOMETHING IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD OF 55 MILLION

TO 60 MILLION ABORTIONS

HERE IN THIS COUNTRY --

WELL, THAT'S A WHOLE

GENERATION WE'VE WIPED OUT

BECAUSE OF THIS IDEA OF

WOMAN'S REPRODUCTIVE

FREEDOM, AND THAT WOMEN

HAD TO BE INDEPENDENT AND

THEY HAD TO FREE

THEMSELVES FROM THE

CLUTCHES OF THE PATRIARCH

PATRIARCHI, AND ALL OF

THAT STUFF.

WELL, A LOT OF THE WOMEN

BOUGHT IT.

THE ONLY THING THAT IS

SAVING AMERICA IS THE FACT

THAT WE HAVE A HUGE

IMMIGRANT POPULATION.

AND PEOPLE DON'T WANT

IMMIGRANTS, BUT THE

IMMIGRANTS ARE CAUSING THE

UNITED STATES TO STAY HALF

WAY STABLE.

WHEREAS IN EUROPE, THEY'RE

IN DECLINE, DRAMATIC

DECLINE, AND JAPAN IS THE

WORST.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT

ENCOURAGING IT' THE FORMATION

OF FAMILIES.

WHY DON'T PEOPLE WANT TO

GET MARRIED?

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CONCEPT

OF THE FUTURE.

YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IN THE

GOD OF THE FUTURE.

IF YOU JUST BELIEVE AT THE

END OF YOUR LIFE THERE IS

NOTHING, YOU JUST GO OFF

INTO A VOID, THEN WHY

WOULD YOU WANT TO GO TO

THE TROUBLE OF HAVING A

CHILD?

I WAS READING THE 90th

PSALM TODAY WHICH SAID,

"TEACH US TO NUMBER OUR

DAYS THAT WE MAY BE WISE."

AND THE DAYS OF OUR LIFE

ARE THREE SCORE AND 10.

AND HE SAYS, LET US

REJOICE THE SAME WAY YOU

HAVE REFLECTED IN US.

THERE IS A LOT OF

HOPELESSNESS OUT THERE.

IF YOU CONSIDER A GODLESS

SOCIETY WITH NO CONCEPT OF

A DEITY, NO CONCEPT OF AN

AFTERLIFE, WHAT DO YOU

HAVE?

THIS WORLD IS IT?

EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY

BECAUSE TOMORROW YOU DIE.

YOU PAY THE PRICE.

Terry: MAX LUCADO IS

COMING ON IN A LITTLE BIT,

AND HE IS GOING TO TALK

ABOUT GLORY DAYS, AND HOW

WE CAN EXPERIENCE THAT

HERE AND NOW.

AND IT IS NOT HOPELESS.

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS

NOT HOPELESS.

IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE

LORD, THERE IS HOPE ALL

THE WAY DOWN THE LINE.

Terry: UP NEXT, A

WOMAN GETS A DEVASTATING

DIAGNOSIS.

YOU ARE EATEN UP WITH

CANCER.

YOU HAVE CANCER NOT ONLY

IN YOUR BREASTS, BUT IT

HAS METASTASIZED IN YOUR

BONES, INTO YOUR ORGANS

AND LYMPH NODES.

Terry: WHAT'S WORSE,

HER CANCER WAS

UNTREATABLE, AND SHE WAS

GIVEN JUST 90 DAYS TO

LIVE.

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS NEXT

THROUGH THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

Terry: YESTERDAY WE

KICKED OFF OUR ANNUAL

"SEVEN DAYS ABLAZE" PRAYER

CHAPEL WITH SPECIAL

GUESTS, MARCUS AND JOANNIE

LAMB.

WE JOINED TOGETHER IN

PRAYER FOR ALL OF THE

REQUESTS YOU HAVE SENT TO

US.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

ONE MORNING THE LORD

SPOKE TO ME, AND HE SAID,

JOANNIE, DID YOU KNOW THAT

YOUR LACK OF SURRENDER,

YOUR LACK OF SURRENDER TO

ME, WILL HAVE A PROFOUND

IMPACT ON THOSE WHO ARE

DESTINED TO BE CONNECTED

TO YOUR PURPOSE.

IF YOU'LL BE SENSITIVE TO

HIM, IF YOU'LL BE

CONNECTED TO HIM, YOU'LL

BE AMAZED AT THE DOORS

THAT GOD IS GOING TO OPEN.

SO YOU MAY FEEL LIKE

GOD CAN'T USE ME; I'M JUST

A NOBODY.

AND YOU SEE IN YOUR OWN

ABILITY YOU CAN'T DO IT.

GOD DOESN'T NORMALLY CALL

PEOPLE WITH GREAT ABILITY

BECAUSE HE IS LOOKING FOR

PEOPLE THAT WILL HAVE TO

BE TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON

HIM.

AND SO WHEN GOD DOES

SOMETHING GREAT THROUGH

YOUR LIFE, THAT HE IS

GOING TO GET ALL OF THE

GLORY.

JUST RAISE THESE UP TO

THE LORD.

LORD, WE COME BOLDLY TO

YOUR THRONE OF GRACE.

WE ASK THAT YOU WOULD

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND

AND DO MIRACLES.

Terry: "SEVEN DAYS

ABLAZE" CONTINUES ALL THIS

WEEK.

IF YOU HAVEN'T YET MAILED

US YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS,

YOU CAN CALL US AT

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN JUST LOG ON TO

cbn.com.

WE WOULD LOVE TO PRAY FOR

YOU AND WITH YOU, AND ALSO

WE WANT YOU TO BE SURE TO

JOIN US AT NOON TODAY FOR

OUR CHAPEL SERVICE.

IT IS STREAMING LIVE AT

cbn.com.

MAX LUCADO, WHO IS COMING

UP LATER ON THIS PROGRAM,

IS GOING TO BE THE

FEATURED SPEAKER, AND YOU

DON'T WANT TO MISS THAT.

Pat: TERRY, WE'RE

SURROUNDED BY PRAYER.

WE HAVE ABOUT 70,000

PRAYER REQUESTS.

I'M SURE IT WILL GO WELL

OVER 100,000.

OF PEOPLE WHO WANT PRAYER.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS NEED IN

THIS SOCIETY.

PEOPLE WANT TO BE TOUCHED

BY GOD.

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE ABOUT TO

SEE A MIRACULOUS ANSWER TO

PRAYER.

JUST IMAGINE HEARING A

REPORT LIKE THIS FROM YOUR

DOCTOR: STAGE FOUR CANCER.

UNTREATABLE.

ONLY 90 DAYS LEFT TO LIVE.

WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A

DIAGNOSIS LIKE THAT?

SHIRLEY WILLIAMS PRAYED

AND PRAYED, AND SOON SHE

GOT ONE WORD FROM THE

LORD: SWEAT.

HERE IS SHIRLEY'S

ASTOUNDING STORY.

Reporter: NO ONE

WANTS TO GET THE KIND OF

PHONE CALL SHIRLEY

WILLIAMS GOT FROM HER

DOCTOR.

SHE SAID, SHIRLEY, YOU

ARE EATEN UP WITH CANCER.

YOU HAVE CANCER NOT ONLY

IN YOUR BREASTS, BUT IT

HAS MET SIZE METASTASIZED INTO YOUR

BONES, INTO YOUR ORGANS,

INTO YOUR LYMPH NODES.

I THOUGHT, GOD, HOW CAN

THIS BE?

GOD, I SERVED YOU ALL OF

MY LIFE.

GOD, HOW?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY.

Reporter: SHIRLEY HAD

BEEN HAVING CHEST PAINS

AND FEELING WEAK AND FOGGY

FOR A LONG TIME.

SHE RARELY WENT TO THE

DOCTOR.

BUT WHEN THE ACHES AND

PAINS DIDN'T GO AWAY, SHE

DECIDED TO GET CHECKED

OUT.

WHAT FOLLOWED WAS A BARAGE

OF TESTS THAT REVEALED

SHIRLEY HAD STAGE FOUR

CANCER.

IT WAS UNTREATABLE, AND

SHE HAD ONLY 90 DAYS TO

LIVE.

FOR HER HUSBAND, MARK,

QUESTIONS BEGAN RACING

THROUGH HIS MIND.

WHAT IF SHIRLEY DIED?

AND WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS?

WHERE AM I GOING TO BE?

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

AND I'M GOING, THIS CAN'T

BE.

I NEED THE SCRIPTURES.

BECAUSE THAT WAS THE ONLY

PLACE THAT I COULD DIG

WHERE I COULD FIND

ENCOURAGEMENT.

AND I TOLD HER, SHIRLEY,

WHO'S REPORT ARE WE GOING

TO BELIEVE?

GOD'S WORD SAYS WE SHALL

LIVE AND NOT DIE.

AND IT ALSO SAYS THAT NO

WEAPON FORMED AGAINST I

WILL PROSPER.

AND BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

Reporter: IN THE DAYS

THAT FOLLOWED, THE PAIN

KEPT GETTING WORSE.

I COULD BARELY WALK.

MY LEFT HIP WAS HURTING SO

BAD.

THE TUMOR IN MY RIGHT

BREAST WAS ABOUT HALF THE

SIZE OF MY FIST.

THE PAIN HAD REACHED

LEVELS THAT I HAD NEVER

EXPERIENCED BEFORE.

THERE WERE THOUGHTS THAT

CROSSED MY MIND THAT IT

WOULD JUST BE EASIER TO

JUST LAY DOWN AND DIE.

Reporter: BUT SHIRLEY

REFUSED TO GIVE INTO FEAR.

INSTEAD, SHE AND MARK

DECIDED TO LIVE BY FAITH

AND SPEAK NOT A SINGLE

WORD OF DOUBT.

I NEVER FOUND ONE PLACE

IN THE SCRIPTURES WHERE

SOMEONE CAME TO JESUS FOR

HEALING THAT THEY WERE NOT

HEALED.

I BEGAN TO SEE THAT FAITH

WAS NOT JUST BELIEVING

THAT GOD WAS ABLE, BUT IT

WAS BELIEVING THAT HE

WILL.

Reporter: SO SHE

SOUGHT GOD FOR DIRECTION.

AND SHIRLEY SAYS ONE NIGHT

SHE WOKE UP FROM A DEEP

SLEEP AND SAW JESUS AT THE

FOOT OF HER BED.

AND AS I SAW HIM, I SAW A

COMPASSION.

I SAW LOVE.

I SAW HOPE.

I BEGAN TO FEEL SWEAT

BEHIND MY RIGHT KNEE.

AND IT WAS SO UNUSUAL.

AND I LOOKED AT HIM, AND I

SAID, LORD, ARE YOU

TELLING ME TO SWEAT?

Reporter: THREE DAYS

LATER, SHIRLEY GOT HER

ANSWER WHEN SHE WENT TO

SEE A NEW ONCOLOGIST.

I TOLD HER TO PRAY FOR

A MIRACLE.

AND HE SAID, SHIRLEY,

I'VE GOT A WORD FOR YOU

BEFORE YOU LEAVE.

I TOLD SHIRLEY SHE

NEEDED TO SWEAT.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

INTENSE SWEAT THERAPY,

INCLUDING DETOX, SAUNAS,

AND LOTS OF EXERCISE.

SHE ALSO WENT ON A STRICT

ORGANIC DIET.

AND HER CHURCH FAMILY AND

FRIENDS FASTED AND PRAYED

FOR SUPER NATURAL HEALING.

AND HER HUSBAND LAID HANDS

ON HER.

JESUS SAID, YOU SHALL

LAY HANDS ON THEM AND

THEIR PAIN SHALL GO AWAY.

Reporter: AND THEN

SHIRLEY HAD A DREAM.

SHE WAS STANDING AT A

GLASS WINDOW, AND COMING

AT HER WAS AN OVERLOADED

SEMI TRUCK.

I BEGAN TO CRY, JESUS,

JESUS, JESUS!

AS I DID, I REMEMBER

SEEING THIS TRUCK COMING,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT

TAPPED THE GLASS RIGHT IN

FRONT OF ME.

AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD

SPOKE TO ME.

AND HE SAID, THAT'S THE

CANCER THAT I JUST

STOPPED.

Reporter: FOR THE

NEXT TWO MONTHS, SHIRLEY

CONTINUED WITH TREATMENTS,

BELIEVING THAT GOD WAS

HEALING HER.

SOON THE GOOD DAYS STARTED

OUTWEIGHING THE BAD DAYS.

WHEN SHE WENT IN FOU FOR HER

90-DAY CHECKUP, SHE GOT

THE NEWS SHE WAS PRAYING

FOR.

IT SHOWED THAT THE

TUMOR WAS GONE.

THERE WAS NO CANCER IN HER

BODY.

I BELIEVE WHEN A PERSON

HAS STAGE FOUR CANCER AND

THE CANCER IS GONE, IT IS

A MIRACLE.

I WAS JUMPING AND

TWIRLING, AND THANKING THE

LORD.

THANKING GOD THAT HE IS A

RESTORER.

I FELT FREE.

FREE TO PLAN AGAIN.

Reporter: SINCE THAT

AUGUST OF 2012, SHIRLEY

HAS HAD NO SIGN OF CANCER.

IT HAS BEEN AMAZING TO

KNOW THAT THERE IS TRUE

LIFE.

AND THERE REALLY IS

FREEDOM FROM SICKNESS AND

DISEASE.

THERE REALLY IS FREEDOM

FROM PAIN.

Reporter: SHIRLEY AND

MARK GIVE ALL OF THE

CREDIT TO JESUS CHRIST.

I'VE BEEN HEALED TODAY

BECAUSE I BELIEVED HIS

WORD, AND I TOOK IT, AND

IT HAD TO BECOME PART OF

EVERY CELL OF MY BEING.

HE IS NOT A RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

WHAT HE DID FOR ME, HE

WILL DO FOR OTHERS.

Pat: WHAT A

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL

STORY.

Terry: UNBELIEVABLE.

Pat: STAGE FOUR.

> WE HAVE SOME REQUESTS.

THIS ONE SAYS, "I HAVE

PROSTATE CANCER AND

BLADDER PROBLEMS AND I

NEED PRAYER."

SOMEBODY SAYS, "I NEED TO

BE DELIVERED FROM

DEPRESSION."

SOMEBODY ELSE, "CONTINUED

HEALING FROM A BRAIN

ANEURYSM."

AND SOMEBODY ELSE NEEDS TO

SELL SOME PROPERTY.

"MY DAUGHTER AND I NEED TO

SELL OUR HOMES."

TERY HERTERY Terry: THIS PERSON IS

SAYING, "MY HUSBAND JUST

LOST HIS JOB AND NEEDS A

NEW ONE QUICKLY.

."

DELIVERIES FROM METH

ADDICTION.

AND SOMEONE WHO SAYS THEY

NEED HEALING FROM PAIN AND

NEWENEUROPATHY IN THEIR FEET."

Pat: PEOPLE NEED

PRAYER.

GOD CREATED THE UNIVERSE.

AND FROM EVERLASTING UNTO

EVERLASTING, THOU ART GOD.

HE IS THE CREATOR OF THE

UNIVERSE.

AND YOUR SICKNESS IS

NOTHING THAT HE CAN'T

SOLVE.

YOUR FINANCIAL PROBLEM IS

NOTHING THAT HE CAN'T

SOLVE.

YOUR INNER PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN YOU

AND YOUR SPOUSE OR YOU AND

YOUR CHILDREN IS NOTHING

THAT GOD CANT SOLVE.

CAN'T SOLVE.

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR MAX

LUCADO TELLS HOW THE BEST

IS YET TO COME.

PAPER

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

TWO CHRISTIAN FILMS

FINISHED IN THE TOP 10

OVER THE WEEKEND AT THE

BOX OFFICE.

"WAR ROOM" CAME IN AT

NUMBER THREE, WITH JUST

UNDER $8 MILLION.

THE MOVIE WAS NUMBER ONE

LAST WEEKEND.

SO FAR "WAR ROOM" HAS MADE

NEARLY $40 MILLION ON A

BUDGET OF JUST $3 MILLION.

THE FILM DEALS WITH A

FAMILY THAT PERSEVERES

THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES

WITH THE HELP OF AN OLDER,

WISER WOMAN AND THROUGH

PRAYER.

AND THE MOVIE "90 MINUTES

IN HEAVEN" OPENED AT

NUMBER 10, BRINGING IN

$2 MILLION IN LIMITED

RELEASE.

IT IS BASED ON THE TRUE

STORY OF PASTOR DON PIPER,

WHO DIED IN A TRAFFIC

ACCIDENT BEFORE COMING

BACK TO LIFE.

> A MINISTRY TO THE DEAF

IS TAKING ON MILITANT

ISLAMISTS.

IN MARCH, ISIS ISSUED A

VIDEO AND IT FEATURED TWO

ISIS FIGHTERS USING SIGN

LANGUAGE TO CONVINCE THE

DEAF THEY CAN SERVE WITH

ISIS.

NOW THE DEAF BIBLE SOCIETY

IS RESPONDING WITH A VIDEO

OF ITS OWN.

FOR THE FIRST TIME,

TRANSLATING THE GOSPEL

INTO A MIDDLE EASTERN SIGN

LANGUAGE.

J.R. BUCKLU, THE PRESIDENT

OF THE DEAF BIBLE SOCIETY

SAYS ISIS IS ATTEMPTING TO

PREY ON A USUAL AND IS

LATED COMMUNITY.

HE WANTS THEM TO LEARN THE

TRANSFORMING WORD OF THE

GOSPEL INSTEAD.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: GLORY DAYS,

THEY'LL PASS YOU BY.

SO GO THE LYRICS TO A

POPULAR SONG.

BUT AUTHOR MAKE MAX LUCADO HAS

SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT

TO SAY ABOUT GLORY DAYS.

TAKE A LOOK.

IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

OR RUNNING ON EMPTY IN

YOUR WALK WITH GOD, YOU'RE

NOT ALONE.

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR AND

PASTOR MAX LUCADO SAYS WE

ALL HAVE THOSE TIMES IN

THE WILDERNESS AT SOME

POINT IN OUR SPIRITUAL

LIFE.

IN HIS LATEST BOOK, "GLORY

DAYS," PASTOR LUCADO

SHARES HOW YOU CAN LEAVE

THE WILDERNESS BEHIND AND

START LIVING UP TO YOUR

GOD-GIVEN POTENTIAL.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

MAX LUCADO.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO HAVE

YOU BACK HERE.

THANK YOU.

IT IS GREAT.

Terry: I THINK WHAT

YOU SAID IS SO TRUE, ALL

BELIEVERS EXPERIENCE

WILDERNESS TIMES IN THEIR

LIVES.

BUT ONLY 11% OF BELIEVERS

FEEL LIKE THEY'RE

EXPERIENCING THEIR GORE

DAYS NOW.

ABSOLUTELY.

THE STUDY ASKED THE

QUESTION: DO YOU REALLY

FEEL LIKE YOU'RE LIVING A

LIFE IN WHICH YOU LOVE GOD

WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART AND

YOU'RE LEARNING TO LOVE

YOUR NEIGHBOR MORE AND

MORE EVERY DAY, AND ONLY

11% COULD SAY YES.

I THINK THAT IS A ALARMING

STATISTIC.

Terry: IT IS A VERY

ALARMING STATISTIC.

YOUR BOOK IS WRITTEN

AROUND THE BOOK OF JOSHUA

AND HIS STORY AND THE

GLORY DAYS EXPERIENCED BY

ISRAEL.

AND THAT'S WHERE THE TERM

COMES FROM.

EXACTLY.

THE STORY OF JOSHUA IS A

FASCINATING STORY BECAUSE

WHEN WE THINK OF ANCIENT

ISRAEL, WE DON'T TYPICALLY

THINK OF GLORY DAYS.

WE THINK OF EGYPTIAN

CAPTIVITY.

WHAT HAS STRUCK ME ABOUT

JOSHUA IS THE QUESTION:

WHAT DID HE AND THE HEBREW

PEOPLE BELIEVE?

WHAT DID THEY KNOW?

WHAT DID THEY DO?

THAT ENABLED THEM TO COME

OUT OF THE WILDERNESS AND

INHERIT THEIR PROMISED

LAND.

I THINK THERE IS A PICTURE

FOR MILLIONS, MAYBE

BILLIONS, OF CHRISTIANS

TODAY WHO FEEL LIKE

THEY'RE CHUGGING ALONG AT

HALF SPEED, THAT THE BOOK

OF JOSHUA CAN HELP US

ENTER INTO A SEASON OF THE

CHURCH EXPERIENCING GLORY

DAYS, IN WHICH WE SEE

JORDAN RIVERS OPEN UP AND

JERICHO WALLS COME DOWN.

AND THE BOOK OF JOSHUA IS

WRITTEN FOR A TIME SUCH AS

OURS.

Terry: WE READ THE

SCRIPTURES ON A REGULAR

BASIS, BUT WHEN YOU WRITE,

YOU OPEN THEM UP TO US IN

AND WHAT YOU'RE WRITING

HERE SO ALIGNS WITH WHAT

WE SEE GOING ON.

TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

THE REVEAL PROJECT.

BECAUSE IT REALLY -- THE

STATISTICS THAT CAME OUT

OF THAT OUGHT TO BE

LISTENED TO.

THEY OUGHT TO BE.

THE REVEAL RESEARCH

PROJECT CANVASSED OVER

1,000 CHURCHES.

IT IS THE MOST

COMPREHENSIVE STUDY DONE

SO FAR OF CHRISTIANS IN

THE UNITED STATES.

AND THERE ARE MANY

QUESTIONS.

THE PRIMARY QUESTION WAS:

DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE

EXPERIENCING SPIRITUAL

GROWTH?

DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE

DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE

ADVANCING IN YOUR FAITH?

AND WHAT THEY DETERMINED

IS 89% OF THE PEOPLE SAID

NO.

AND SO THERE IS A VAST

POPULATION OF CHRISTIANS

WHO FEEL STUCK IN THEIR

FAITH.

Terry: SO WHY IS

THAT?

IF THE PROMISES ARE THERE

AND THE GLORY IS TO BE FOR

NOW, WHY AREN'T WE WALKING

IN IT?

I THINK WE GET USED TO

THE WILDERNESS.

I THINK THE CHILDREN OF

ISRAEL ARE A TESTIMONY TO

PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME OUT

OF EGYPT BUT HAVE NOT

ENTERED THE PROMISED LAND

BECAUSE THEY JUST DON'T

KNOW.

THE BIG IDEA TO ME IN THE

BOOK OF JOSHUA IS THAT

THEY INHERITED GOD'S

PROMISES.

THEY DIDN'T CONQUER THE

LAND.

THEY DIDN'T FIGHT FOR

VICTORY.

THEY FOUGHT FROM VICTORY.

THEY BELIEVED THAT GOD HAD

ALREADY GIVEN THEM THAT

LAND AND ALL THEY HAD TO

DO WAS ENTER IT.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAYS WE

ARE CO HEIRS WITH CHRIST.

WE SIMPLY RECEIVE WHAT GOD

HAS GIVEN US.

IT DOESN'T MEAN WE HAVE NO

STRUGGLES.

IT DOES MEAN WE HAVE THE

ASSURANCE AND CONFIDENCE

THAT VICTORY WILL COME.

Terry: DO YOU THINK

SOME OF IT IS BECAUSE WE

DON'T RECOGNIZE HOW MUCH

GOD HAS WON THE VICTORY

AND WANTS TO GIVE IT TO

US?

I THINK THAT IS HUGE.

YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT

GOD IS ON MY SIDE.

THE PROMISE GOD GAVE

JOSHUA.

HE BASICALLY TOLD HIM,

KEEP MEDITATING ON MY WORD

AND I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.

WELL, WE CAN DO THAT.

I THINK WE LIKE TO THINK

THERE IS SOME SECRET CODE

OR THERE IS SOME MYSTERY MYSTICAL

PART WE'RE MISSING.

Terry: ONE OF THE

THINGS YOU SAY STRONGLY IN

THE BOOK, AND THAT IS SO

SIGNIFICANT TO US TODAY,

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

THAT WE HAVE TO DO TO

REALLY GAIN THIS, AND

THAT'S TO TURN AWAY FROM

WHERE WE WERE IN THE

WILDERNESS AND HEAD FOR

THE VICTORY.

IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF

PEOPLE ARE LIVING WITH ONE

FOOT IN THE KINGDOM AND

THE OTHER FOOT PLANTED

FIRMLY IN THE WORLD.

ABSOLUTELY.

THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL HAD

TO TAKE THAT STEP OF

FAITH, DIDN'T THEY?

Terry: YEAH.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TWO

MILLION PEOPLE, 40,000

SOLDIERS.

TROOP THAT JOSHUA WAS

LEADING.

THEY HAD TO MOBILIZE

THEMSELVES AND STEP

FORWARD IN FAITH.

NOT KNOWING THAT THE

JORDAN RIVER WAS GOING TO

OPEN.

AND YET THEY STEPPED

FORWARD IN FAITH.

WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS TO

SAY, OKAY, I'VE HAD ENOUGH

OF THIS WILDERNESS

WANDERING.

I'M GOING TO MOVE FORWARD

IN FAITH.

I'M GOING TO TRUST THAT

GOD IS WITH ME.

TRUST THAT I TRULY AM AN

HEIR OF CHRIST.

I'M GOING TO RECEIVE

EVERYTHING HE HAS FOR ME.

I'M GOING TO MEDITATE ON

I'M GOING TO MEDITATE ON

HIS WORD.

THAT CAME OUT IN THE

RESEARCH, THAT THOSE WHO

ARE GROWING IN THEIR FAITH

MEDITATE ON GOD'S WORD ON

A REGULAR BASIS.

WE CAN DO THAT AND MOVE

FORWARD IN OUR FAITH.

Terry: DO YOU THINK

THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS

THAT PEOPLE ARE FLOCKING

TO SEE "WAR ROOM"?

I DO.

Terry: IT IS LIKE A

RESTORATION IN YOUR SENSE

AND YOUR SPIRIT.

YOU'VE GOT THIS.

AND, TERRY, I HAVE HIGH

HOPES ABOUT THIS

GENERATION.

I KNOW WE HAVE A LOT OF

BAD NEWS AND THINGS WE'RE

CONCERNED ABOUT, BUT WHEN

THE DAYS ARE DARKEST, THE

LIGHT IS THE BRIGHTEST,

RIGHT?

I'M SEEING THE CHURCH

BEGIN TO RALLY.

I'M SEEING SOME GATHERINGS

AND SOME BREAKTHROUGHS.

THE GREAT WORK THAT YOU'VE

DONE HERE FOR YEARS AND

YEARS.

WE'RE ALL MOVING IN A

BETTER, HEALTHY DIRECTION.

I THINK WE COULD BE

ENTERING INTO A SEASON OF

REVIVAL, A SEASON OF GLORY

DAYS.

TO BE HONEST, I'M EXCITED

ABOUT THIS.

Terry: AND THE GREAT

NEWS IS IT IS A CHOICE.

WE CAN HAVE IT.

IN FACT, WE'VE BEEN GIVEN

IT.

I WANT TO SAY IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING IN YOUR WALK

WITH THE LORD, THIS IS THE

BOOK FOR YOU.

MAX'S BOOK IS CALLED

"GLORY DAYS."

THIS IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

MAX IS ALSO OUR FEATURED

SPEAKER TODAY AT OUR NOON

CHAPEL, AND YOU CAN JOIN

US LIVE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG

ON TO cbn.com.

THAT'S AT NOON EASTERN

TIME.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

THANK YOU.

THIS IS A MESSAGE FOR THE

CHURCH, BUT FOR EVERY

INDIVIDUAL BELIEVER, TOO.

IT IS A GREAT HONOR TO

BE HERE.

Terry: IT IS GREAT TO

HAVE YOU.

NEXT, WE'RE GOING TO

"BRING IT ON."

ONE SAYS, "WE'RE READING

ABOUT ISIS INVADING

VILLAGES AND CUTTING

CHRISTIANS' HEADS OFF.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS

IS OUR PROTECTOR.

WHY AREN'T THESE

CHRISTIANS PROTECTED?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S

Terry: WELL, IT IS

TIME TO "BRING IT ON" WITH

SOME OF THE E-MAIL

QUESTIONS THAT YOU ALL

HAVE SENT IN.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE COMES

FROM ALVINA, WHO SAYS,

"WE'RE READING ABOUT ISIS

INVADING VILLAGES AND

CUTTING CHRISTIANS' HEADS

OFF IF THEY DON'T DENY

THEIR SAVIOR, JESUS.

THE BIBLE SAYS JESUS IS

OUR PROTECTOR.

WHY AREN'T THESE

CHRISTIANS PROTECTED?"

Pat: WELL, BECAUSE

JESUS SAID IN THE LAST

DAYS, THERE WILL BE

PERSECUTION.

THOSE WHO STAY ON TO THE

END ARE GOING TO PREVAIL.

HERE IS -- I WANT TO READ

THIS.

THIS IS REVELATION 20: "I

SAW THRONES ON WHICH WAS

SEATED THOSE GIVEN

AUTHORITY TO JUDGE.

AND I SAW THE SOULS OF

THOSE WHO HAD BEEN

BEHEADED BECAUSE OF THEIR

TESTIMONY ABOUT JESUS AND

BECAUSE OF THE WORD OF

GOD.

THEY HAD NOT WORSHIPPED

THE BEAST, HAD NOT

RECEIVED HIS MARK, AND

THEY CAME AND REIGNED WITH

CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS."

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

TELLS US.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THERE

WILL BE BEHEADINGS AND

THEY'RE TAKING PLACE AND

IT BREAKS YOUR HEART.

THEY ARE TRIBULATION

MARTYRS.

Terry: IT IS SO

BARBARIC WHEN YOU WOULD

READ THOSE SCRIPTURES, YOU

WOULD THINK, HOW WOULD

THAT HAPPEN?

BUT LOOK --

Pat: I USED TO READ

THAT AND SAY, THERE IS NO

WAY THAT WILL HAPPEN IN

OUR LIFETIME.

AND LO AND BEHOLD, HERE

COME THESE MONSTERS.

BUT THE MONSTERS ARE

FOLLOWING THE WRITINGS OF

THE QURAN.

Terry: GWYNN SAYS,

"I'M RETIRED AND

COMPLETELY IGNORANT WHEN

IT COMES TO BUYING SILVER.

HOW DO YOU START?

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF AND

WHEN TO BUY?

WHOM DO YOU TRUST?

COINS OR BARS?

IS IT DELIVERED?

IS IT KEPT AT HOME?

HOW DO YOU CASH IT IN IF

YOU NEED IT?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

NEITHER SILVER OR GOLD

WILL BE DELIVERED IN THE

DAY OF WRATH.

I DON'T KNOW RIGHT NOW

ABOUT INVESTMENTS.

I THOUGHT I HAD SOME

SMARTS ON THIS AREA, BUT

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

TOO MUCH UNCERTAINTY.

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

THINGS ARE UP AND DOWN.

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

IF YOU WANT SILVER,

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

S.L.V.ISN'T IS THE

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

V. IS THE SYMBOL.

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

AND THE SHARE WITH THE

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

GOLD IS USUALLY PRICED AT

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

ONE-TENTH OF AN OUNCE OF

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

GOLD, AND SILVER IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

PROBABLY ABOUT THE SAME

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

THING.

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

YOU DON'T NEED TO BUY

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

PHYSICAL SILVER.

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

IT IS TOO MUCH.

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

Terry: HOW DO YOU

I'M TELLING YOU, THERE IS

CASH IN SOMETHING LIKE

THAT AND UTILIZE IT?

Pat: IF YOU'VE GOT

BARS OF SILVER, IT IS VERY

HARD TO DO.

BUT IF YOU CAN GET A BAG

OF SILVER COINS, THEY SELL

THOSE BAGS, SO THEY ARE,

LIKE, DIMES AND QUARTERS

THAT USED TO BE MADE OUT

OF SILVER INSTEAD OF

COPPER.

THAT IS SOMETHING YOU CAN

USE.

YOU CAN CASH IN A SHARE OF

S.L.V.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "I'M LOOKING FORWARD

TO GOING TO HEAVEN.

MY QUESTION IS: WILL WE

HAVE THE SAME

PERSONALITIES WE HAVE ON

EARTH IN HEAVEN.

BUT WOULD WE BE CHANGED TO

THE IMAGE OF JESUS AND

THINKING HIS WAYS.

I KNOW GOD IS A GOD OF

VARIETY, SO WILL WE BE

DIFFERENT?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

EVERYONE WILL HAVE A

STONE.

AND ON THE STONE WILL BE A

NAME.

EVERY ONE OF US HAS A

PARTICULAR ABILITY TO

GLORIFY THE LORD.

AND IT IS NOT GOING TO BE

A GREAT UNIFORMITY IN

HEAVEN.

WE'LL ALL HAVE DIFFERENT

PERSONALITY TRAITS, BUT

WE'LL ALL REFLECT THE

GLORY OF GOD.

WE WON'T BE CONFINED TO A

PHYSICAL BODY, BUT THE

SPIRIT THAT IS WITHIN US.

OUR PARTICULAR WAY OF

GLORIFYING GOD WILL MAKE

FOR THE TREMENDOUS GLORY.

LIKE THE FACETS OF A

BEAUTIFUL DIAMOND.

YOU DON'T JUST HAVE ONE

LIGHT.

THE LIGHT SPARKLES THROUGH

ALL OF THEM.

Terry: RODNEY SAYS,

"WITH THE LAW NOW CHANGED

ALLOWING HOMOSEXUAL

UNIONS, AS A CHRISTIAN,

WOULD I BE PARTAKING IN

THE WORLD VIEW O RATHER THAN

GOD'S BY PARTAKING INTO A

MARRIAGE.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT IS

BETWEEN MAN AND WOMAN."

Pat: MARRIAGE IS A

SACRAMENT OF THE CHURCH.

IT IS NOT SOMETHING THE

SUPREME COURT SHOULD BE

LEGISLATING ABOUT

MARRIAGE.

CIVIL UNIONS, BY ALL

MEANS.

DON'T OVERSPIRITUALIZE

THIS STUFF.

YOU GET CERTAIN BENEFITS

OF BEING MARRIED.

YOU GO DOWN AND GET A

LICENSE.

IT'S LIKE DRIVING A CAR.

I DON'T WANT TO DRIVE

BECAUSE THE SYSTEM IS

EVIL.

WELL, YOU'VE GOT TO GET A

LICENSE TO DRIVE THE CAR,

SO DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

Terry: RON SAYS, "I

KNOW GENESIS ONE THROUGH

12 DEALS WITH ABRAHAM AND

GOD MAKING HIM A GREAT

NATION.

DO THESE VERSES REFER TO

THE JEWISH AND GOD

BLESSING THEM, AND TO GOD

BLESSING HIS CHILDREN IN

GENERAL, OR DO THEY HAVE

SOME OTHER SIGNIFICANCE?"

Pat: GOD SAID TO

ISRAEL, I'M GOING TO MAKE

YOU A BLESSING.

THE ARABS COME FROM

IBRAHIM, AND THEY COME

THROUGH HIS SON, ISHMAEL,

SO GOD WILL BLESS THEM,

TOO.

THE BLESSING OF GOD WAS

THROUGH ISAAC AND THEN

THROUGH THAT LINE.

SO THE GREAT BLESSING OF

THE INHERITANCE OF GOD

WENT TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT NEVERTHELESS, THE

CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM WILL,

INDEED, WILL BE BLESSED.

I THINK THAT'S WHY SO MANY

ARABS ARE SEEING VISIONS

NOW, THE LORD IS TALKING

TO THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE

STILL CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALM

121: "THE LORD SHALL

PRESERVE YOU FROM ALL

EVIL.

HE SHALL PRESERVE YOUR

SOUL.

THE LORD SHALL PRESERVE

YOUR GOING U OUT AND YOUR

COMING IN, FROM THIS TIME

FORTH AND FOREVER MORE."

TOMORROW, JONATHAN CAHN IS

GOING TO TALK TO US AGAIN

ABOUT THE SHMITA.

AND WHAT'S THE FOLLOW UP

AND WHAT SHOULD WE LEARN

FROM IT.

I THINK YOU DON'T WANT TO

MISS THAT.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN WATCH
