COULD HE BE THE NEXT

OPRAH?

T.J. JAKES TALKS ABOUT HIS

NEW ROLE AS TV TALK SHOW

HOST.

TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY

TO HAVE A DAYTIME TALK

SHOW, IT'S EXHILARATING.

Wendy: PLUS...A

MYSTERIOUS ILLNESS STRIKES

A YOUNG HUSBAND WHO IS

RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IF ALL

OF OUR COMMUNICATIONS GET

FOULED UP AND YOU CAN'T

TRANSFER MONEY, IT WOULD

GET TO BE BAD, WOULDN'T

IT?

Wendy: UNLESS YOU'VE

GOT SOME STASHED UNDER THE

MATTRESS.

Pat: WELL, WE DON'T

HAVE THAT.

CAN YOU IMAGINE 10 --

COUNT THEM -- $10 TRILLION

A DAY IN TRANSACTIONS THAT

GO BACK AND FORTH IN UNDER

SEA CABLES, $10 TRILLION.

WHAT IS RUSSIA DOING ABOUT

IT?

THEY'RE GEARING UP FOR A

NEW TYPE OF WARFARE BY

CUTTING OFF THESE

COMMUNICATION LINKS.

GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS,

MAYBE EVEN THE WAY WE OWN

OUR OWN HOMES.

RUSSIAN SHIPS ARE NOW

SNOOPING AROUND THE

UNDERSEA CABLES THAT CARRY

MOST OF THE WORLD'S

INFORMATION.

AND IF THEY WANT TO, THEY

COULD DO INCREDIBLE DAMAGE

TO US, PLUNGING OUR

COUNTRY INTO A CHAOS.

Wendy: WELL, YOU MAY

NOT EVEN KNOW THAT THOSE

CABLES EXIST, BUT THEY'RE

ESSENTIAL FOR THE ECONOMY,

OUR MILITARY, AND MU MUCH

MORE.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: RUSSIA'S

GROWING MILITARY ACTIVITY

CONTINUES TO INCREASE

TENSIONS WITH THE U.S.

NOW A "NEW YORK TIMES"

REPORT REVEALS A NEW CAUSE

FOR CONCERN: RUSSIAN

SUBMARINES ARE

AGGRESSIVELY OPERATING

NEAR THE UNDERWATER CABLES

THAT CARRY ALMOST ALL

GLOBAL INTERNET

COMMUNICATIONS.

U.S. MILITARY OFFICIALS

SAY THE WORST-CASE

SCENARIO IS THAT THE

RUSSIANS WOULD CUT THE

CABLES IN PARTS THAT ARE

ESPECIALLY HARD TO ACCESS,

SEVERING INSTANT

COMMUNICATION FOR THE

WEST.

AS THE TIMES POINTS OUT,

THESE CABLES CARRY THE

LIFE BLOOD OF GLOBAL

ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS

AND CONSUMERS'.

SOME FINANCIAL

INSTITUTIONS EVEN SETTLE

TRANSACTIONS ON THEN EVERY

SECOND.

AND THE CABLES TRANSPORT

WORLDWIDE BUSINESS WORTH

MORE THAN $10 TRILLION A

DAY.

AND THEY ALSO CARRY MORE

THAN 95% OF DAILY

COMMUNICATIONS AROUND THE

WORLD.

THE COMMANDER OF THE U.S.

NAVY SUBMARINE FLEET IN

THE PACIFIC TOLD THE

PAPER, "I'M WORRIED EVERY

DAY ABOUT WHAT THE

RUSSIANS MAY BE DOING."

MILITARY OFFICIALS SAY THE

LEVEL OF ACTIVITY THEY'RE

SEEING FROM THE RUSSIANS

IS COMPARABLE TO WHAT THEY

SAW IN THE COLD WAR, AND

THEY WOULDN'T PUT IT PAST

THE RUSSIANS TO RESORT

BACK TO COLD WAR TACTICS.

THE COMMANDER OF THE

AMERICAN NAVAL FORCES IN

EUROPE SAYS THAT RUSSIA IS

USING A MIC MIX OF

CONVENTIONAL FORCE, 21st

OPS MISSION, AND 21st

CENTURY STRATEGY.

HE SAYS IT USES

INFORMATION WARFARE AND

HYBRID WARFARE.

WITH THAT IN MIND,

PENTAGON OFFICIALS WORRY

THAT CABLES ARE THE

PERFECT COVERT TARGET.

ACCORDING TO THE TIMES,

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND

SECURITY LISTS THEIR

LANDING AREAS AT THE TOP

OF THEIR LIST OF CRITICAL

INFRASTRUCTURE, MAKING

THESE UNDERSEA CABLES AND

THE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

INFORMATION THEY CARRY A

POTENTIAL NEW FRONT IN

RUSSIA'S AGGRESSIVE

EXPANSION OF POWER.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, FOLKS, IF

THAT DOESN'T CARE YOU, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL.

BUT THERE IS A LOT MORE

GOING ON.

EXCUSE ME.

IT IS NOT ONLY TROUBLE

HERE, THERE IS TROUBLE

OVER IN ASIA.

CHINA IS FLEXING ITS

MUSCLES, AND THIS TIME IT

HAS TO DO WITH THE RIGHT

OF PASSAGE OF OUR SHIPS IN

DISPUTED OR INTERNATIONAL

WATERS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THE DISPUTE

WITH BEIJING INVOLVES ITS

ATTEMPTS TO TAKE OVER

ISLANDS IN THE SOUTH CHINA

SEA.

AN AMERICAN NAVY-GUIDED

MISSILE DESTROYER SAILED

PAST ONE OF THE ISLANDS.

THE MOVE THREATENED

RELATIONS WITH THE U.S.

AND PEACE IN THE REGION.

NAVY OFFICIALS SAY THE

MANEUVER WAS NECESSARY TO

ASSESS THE U.S.'S POSITION

THAT CHINA CANNOT CREATE

MAN MADE ISLANDS IN ORDER

TO CLAIM THEY HAVE RIGHTS

OVER OTHER DISPUTED

ISLANDS.

Pat: THE CHINESE ARE

SAYING THE SPRATLY

ISLANDS -- THE PHILIPPINES

SAY THEY ARE OUR ISLANDS.

BUT WHAT THE CHINESE ARE

DOING IS THEY'RE BUILDING

UP AREAS IN THE WATER,

BUILDING UP LITTLE MANMADE

ISLANDS, AND THEN THEY'RE

PUTTING DOWN RUN-AWAY RUNWAYS FOR

AIRPLANES UP THERE.

THIS IS RICH IN OIL AND

RICH IN OTHER RESOURCES,

BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING, IT

IS AITE VITAL SEA LANE FOR

CHINA, JAPAN, THE

PHILIPPINES, VIETNAM --

ALL OF THOSE COUNTRIES.

AND THE CHINESE WANT TO

EXERT WHAT IS CALLED

HEMGEMENY, AND FORTUNATELY

THE PRESIDENT HAS FINALLY

SHOWED WE'RE GOING TO SHOW

SOME SUPPORT.

> THERE IS SOMETHING

ELSE GOING ON THAT SHOULD

MAKE US HAPPY, BUT THERE

ARE MANY CONSERVATIVES WHO

ARE NOT HAPPY.

JOHN?

John: HOUSE

REPUBLICAN LEADERS STRUCK

A DEAL ON THE BUDGET WITH

THE WHITE HOUSE JUST

BEFORE MIDNIGHT LAST

NIGHT.

IT IS AIMED AT AVOIDING A

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AND

PREVENTING A POTENTIAL

DEBT CRISIS.

THE DEAL WOULD FUND THE

PENTAGON AND GOVERNMENT

AGENCIES FOR TWO YEARS IN

EXCHANGE FOR UNSPECIFIED

CUTS.

JOHN BOEHNER IS ASKING

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

TO BACK THE PLAN.

WHETHER OPLAN.

WISCONSIN REPUBLICAN PAUL

RYAN IS EXPECTED TO WIN

ELECTION AS SPEAKER LATER

THIS WEEK.

> WELL, MORE THAN 20

STATES AND OTHER

ORGANIZATIONS ARE SUING

THE E.P.A. OVER PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S PLAN TO FIGHT

GLOBAL WARMING.

NOW, THE PRESIDENT SAYS

HIS PLAN WILL HELP THE

ENVIRONMENT, BUT CRITICS

FEAR IT WILL BE BAD FOR

BUSINESSES AND THE

ECONOMY.

JENNIFER WISHON FILES THIS

REPORT FROM THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT CALLS IT A CLEAN

ENERGY PLAN.

CRITICS CALL IT A WAR ON

COAL.

THEY'RE ASKING A COURT TO

OVERTURN THE RULE AND PUT

IT ON ICE UNTIL THE

LITIGATION PLAYS OUT.

THEY SAY IT IS JUST THE

LATEST EXAMPLE OF THE

PRESIDENT USING HIS

EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY TO

BYPASS CONGRESS.

THIS TIME USING THE E.P.A.

TO FORCE STATES TO

TRANSFORM THEIR ELECTRIC

GRIDS.

THE E.P.A. HAS GIVEN EACH

STATE A GOAL TO MEET BY

2030.

SOME MUST REDUCE THEIR

CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS

BY NEARLY HALF.

IF STATES DON'T FORMULATE

PLANS TO REACH THE

E.P.A.'s GOAL, THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WILL

CREATE ONE FOR THEM.

LUKE POPAVICH WORKS FOR

THE NATIONAL MINING

ASSOCIATION, ONE OF THE

GROUPS FILING SUIT.

ESSENTIALLY WHAT THIS

PLAN DOES IS TAKE AWAY OUR

MOST AFFORDABLE SOURCES OF

GENERATING ELECTRICITY,

WHICH IS GOAL AND THEN

NATURAL GAS.

Reporter: COAL

GENERATES NEARLY 40% OF

THE NATION'S POWER.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO

REPLACE IT WITH MORE

RENEWABLE SOURCES, LIKE

WIND AND SOLAR.

CHANGESINCHANGING THE NATION'S

POWER GRID WILL BE COSTLY.

President Obama: THEY

WILL PLAN THIS PLAN WILL

COST YOU MONEY, EVEN

THOUGH THIS PLAN WILL SAVE

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN $85 A

YEAR ON THEIR ENERGY

BILLS.

Reporter: BUT THAT IS

15 YEARS AWAY, AND UNTIL

THEN, COSTS WILL BE PASSED

ON TO COSTUMERS.

THE COAL INDUSTRY ALSO

EXPECTS TO LOSE MORE JOBS

ON TOP OF THE 40,000 LOST

OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS.

VIRTUALLY NO

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFIT IS

BEING ACHIEVED BY ALL OF

THIS ECONOMIC HAVOC.

IT IS ONE THING IF WE

COULD SAY, WELL, WE HAVE

TO PAY A SUBSTANTIAL PRICE

IN ORDER TO REALLY ADDRESS

GLOBAL WARMING, HOWEVER

SERIOUS YOU THINK IT MIGHT

BE.

BUT WHEN YOU LEARN THAT BY

E.P.A.'s OWN NUMBERS,

THIS PLAN WILL HAVE

VIRTUALLY NEGLIGIBLE

EFFECT ON GLOBAL WARMING.

Reporter: THAT'S

BECAUSE CHINA AND OTHER

DEVELOPING NATIONS ARE

MAJOR POLLUTERS.

BUT EXPECT A FIGHT.

ADDRESSING CLIMATE CHANGE

IS ONE OF THE PRESIDENT'S

TOP PRIORITIES BEFORE HE

LEAVES OFFICE.

HE PERSONALLY PROMOTED HIS

PLAN ON A RECENT TRIP TO

ALASKA.

President Obama:

BEHIND ME IS A ONE OF THE

GLACIERS IN ALASKA.

IT IS SPECTACULAR.

THIS IS WORTH PRESERVING.

Reporter: BUT

POPAVICH SAYS TAKING COAL

OFF THE TABLE DOESN'T MAKE

SENSE.

WHEN INSTEAD WE COULD

BE USING THE SAME AMOUNT

OF MONEY WE'RE GOING TO BE

FORCING TAXPAYERS TO PAY

IN HIGHER ELECTRICITY

COSTS, AND INSTEAD PUT

THAT MONEY INTO TECHNOLOGY

INNOVATION, AND NOT ONLY

USE THAT TECHNOLOGY FOR

THE RESOURCES WE HAVE

HERE, BUT KEEP THOSE JOBS

AND THAT RESOURCE VALUABLE

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES

AND USE IT MUCH MORE

CLEANLY.

AT THE SAME TIME, SELL

THAT TECHNOLOGY ABROAD TO

THE BIG EMITTING

COUNTRIES, LI LIKE CHINA IN

INDIA.

Reporter: THE NEXT

MOVE BELONGS TO TH THE

COURTS.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS.

John: IT IS CLEAR

THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTS

TO LEAVE A LEGACY ON

CLIMATE CHANGE.

Pat: HE WANTS TO

DESTROY AN INDUSTRY.

YOU'RE FROM WEST JI WEST VIRGINIA,

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Wendy: I THINK GOD

PUT THE COAL HERE FOR A

REASON.

WE HAVE THIS GREAT NATURAL

RESOURCE AND WE'RE NOT

MAKING USE OF IT.

Pat: TO SHUT THIS

INDUSTRY DOWN AND THE

ILLUSION -- IT IS AN

ILLUSION THAT THIS IS

SOMEHOW GOING TO AFFECT

GLOBAL WARMING.

AND IT'S NOT GOING TO DO

ANYTHING FOR GLOBAL

WARMING.

IT WILL COST AMERICA TENS

AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

JOBS.

HOW MANY JOBS DO YOU THINK

WOULD BE LOST IN WEST

VIRGINIA?

Wendy: THOUSANDS.

THERE IS A COAL MINER

OPERATOR I KNOW IN

SOUTHERN VIRGINIA, AND HE

IS A CHRISTIAN, AND HE IS

DOING WELL, BUT HE IS

PROCLAIMING GOD'S FAVOR.

Pat: JOE MANSION IS

STANDING UP AGAINST THIS

THING, AND HE PUT UP SOME

LEGISLATION THAT MIGHT

STOP IT, BUT SOMETHING HAS

TO BE DONE.

THE GUY IS TRYING TO

UNILATERALLY REWRITE THE

LAWS AND TAKE -- I SEE

THEY'RE GOING AFTER COAL.

THEY'RE GOING AFTER

FOR-PROFIT HIGHER

EDUCATION.

THEY WANT TO DESTROY --

THEY'VE ALREADY TAKEN ONE

DOWN, AND THEY'RE GOING

AFTER ANOTHER ONE NOW.

AND THE GOVERNMENT

SHOULDN'T BE PICKING

WINNERS AND LOSERS.

THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD MAKE

A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD,

WHERE EVERYBODY HAS GOT A

CHANCE.

AND IF SOMEBODY HURTS

SOMEBODY ELSE, THEN THEY

CAN STEP IN AND THEY'VE

GOT LAWS TO PREVENT THAT.

BUT NOT HERE.

> WELL, GUESS WHAT?

IN MINNESOTA THEY ELECTED

A WRESTLER, A PROFESSIONAL

WRESTLER AS THEIR

GOVERNOR, AND THEY ELECTED

A TELEVISION COMEDIAN AS A

SENATOR.

WELL, WE'RE NOT THE ONLY

COUNTRY DOING STRANGE

THINGS.

IN CENTRAL AMERICA THE

VOTERS IN GUATEMALA HAVE

BEEN LOOKING AT WINNING --

AS A MATTER OF FACT, THEY

VOTED OVERWHELMING FOR A

POLITICAL OUTSIDER WHO

HAPPENS TO BE A COMIC.

LOOK AT THIS.

Reporter Reporter: HE RAN ON A

PLATFORM OF CONSERVATIVE

VALUES, OPPOSING ABORTION

AND THE LEGALIZATION OF

MARIJUANA.

I THINK IN GUATEMALA,

WE HAVE CONSERVATIVE

THINKINGMENTHINKING.

IN CASE CONGRESS APPROVES

SUCH LAWS, MY POSITION

WOULD BE AGAINST THEM.

Reporter: HE

PRESENTED HIMSELF AS A

CHAMPION AGAINST

CORRUPTION, WITH THE

SLOGAN: NEITHER CORRUPT

NOR A THIEF.

WITH A JAILED PRESIDENT,

THE COUNTRY TEETERED ON

THE VIRGE OF SOCIAL AND

POLITICAL CHAOS.

CBN NEWS PRODUCER JAVIER

WAS IN GUATEMALA CITY

REPORTING ON THE ELECTION.

THE GUATEMALAN CHURCH

PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE

THROUGH THE CRISIS.

HELD PRAYER MEETINGS LIKE

THIS ONE AT THE CENTRAL

PARK EVERY SATURDAY

MORNING.

Reporter: THE

GUATEMALA PRAISE MOVEMENT

MOBILIZED OVER 700

CHURCHES FOR PRAYER VIGILS

AND FASTING.

FOR 40 DAYS, THEY PRAYED

FOR A PEACEFUL SOLUTION TO

THE CRISIS.

GOD PUT HIS HAND ON

GUATEMALA.

IT IS A MIRACLE WHAT

HAPPENED.

WE CAME TOGETHER AS A

CHURCH AND CRIED OUT WITH

ONE VOICE.

THE PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS

MAN AVAILS MUCH.

GOD HEARD THE VOICE OF ALL

OF THOSE WHO JOINED IN

PRAYER.

THE ROLE OF THE CHRISTIAN

CHURCH IS TO BE THE BRIGHT BRIDE

OF THE LAND.

A ROLE OF SERVICE AND

DEVOTION, AND ALSO TO

EVANGELIZE, TRAIN, AND

IMPROVE THE TALENTS OF

PEOPLE.

SO IT IS A FAIRLY LARGE

ROLE.

Reporter: SO

GUATEMALANS HAVE CHOSEN A

CHRISTIAN AS THEIR NEXT

PRESIDENT, HOPING AND

PRAYING HE'LL HELP BRING

HEALING TO THEIR COUNTRY

AND BETTER DAYS AHEAD.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT AN

ENCOURAGING STORY.

A GREAT GUY.

I DON'T THINK HE HAS ANY

EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER IN

GOVERNMENT, BUT,

NEVERTHELESS, HE HAS THE

RIGHT HEART, AND HE COULD

SURROUND HIMSELF WITH

HONEST AND HONORABLE

PEOPLE.

IF THEY COULD CUT OUT

CORRUPTION, IT IS A MAJOR,

MAJOR THING D TO DO.

I KNOW EPHRAIM RIOS MOUNT,

WHO WAS THE PRESIDENT

THERE.

AND HE IS A TERRIFIC GUY.

AND THEY HAD A MARVELOUS

GOVERNMENT.

BUT THE LEFT GOT AFTER

HIM, AND HE COULDN'T

SURVIVE.

THEY JUST WENT AFTER HIM

AND ATTACKED HIM AND

ATTACKED HIM.

THE UNITED STATES STATE

DEPARTMENT WENT AFTER HIM,

AND IT WAS TERRIBLE.

MAYBE THEY'LL LEAVE THIS

MAN ALONE.

AT LEAST, IF THE UNITED

STATES WOULD TRY TO HELP

HIM, RATHER THAN HINDER

HIS WORD.

IT IS ENCOURAGING.

AS THESE THINGS GO ALONG,

YOU CAN TAKE HEART IN THE

FACT THAT GUATEMALA IS

COMING OUT OF THE

DOLDRUMS, WE HOPE.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

HE HAS HIT A HOMERUN IN

EACH OF HIS LAST SIX

GAMES.

WE'LL GET UP CLOSE AND

PERSONAL WITH THE METS'

POWERHOUSE PLAYER, DANIEL

MURPHY.

> AND UP NEXT, T.D.

JAKES TALKS ABOUT HIS NEW

JOB AS A TV TALK SHOW

HOST.

IT IS SCHIL EXHILARATING.

FOR ME IT IS FUN TO GET TO

SIT DOWN AND REFLECT ON

ALL OF THE EXPERIENCES

I'VE HAD IN AND OUT OF THE

CHURCH.

Wendy: HEAR MORE FROM

T.D. JAKES WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT MEGA

CHURCHES, AND YOU'VE HEARD

ABOUT THE BIG, BIG, BIG

CHURCHES.

ONE OF THEM IS CALLED

POTTER'S HOUSE, AND IT IS

IN DALLAS, TEXAS.

AND THE PASTOR IS A MAN

NAMED T.D. JAKES.

AND HE IS ALSO AN AUTHOR

OF BOOKS THAT HAVE SOLD

MILLIONS OF COPIES, AND

THEY'VE MADE MOVIES ABOUT

HIM.

AND THE CONFERENCES HE'S

HAD PACKED OUT HUGE

AUDITORIUMS ACROSS THE

NATION.

I DON'T KNOW IF HE IS

DOING IT RIGHT, BUT,

BISHOP, WE LOVE YOU AND

WEHOBE HOPE YOU'RWEHOPE WE'RE MAKING THE

RIGHT DECISION.

HE IS GOING TO BECOME A

TALK SHOW HOST ON THE

OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK.

JOHN JESSUP INTERVIEWED

HIM ABOUT THAT.

John: BY HIS OWN

ADMISSION, THE RISE OF

T.D. JAKES IS AN UNLIKELY

STORY.

A BOY FROM WEST VIRGINIA,

WHO WOULD BECOME A MAN OF

FAITH WITH INTERNATIONAL

INFLUENCE.

"TIME MAGAZINE" EVEN ASKED

ON A 2001 COVER IF JAKES

WERE THE NEXT BILLY

GRAHAM.

PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER

AND GIVE HIM PRAISE.

Reporter: HOW DID HE

GET HERE?

FOR HIM IT WAS A DANCE

WITH DESTINY.

THE TITLE OF HIS LATEST

BOOK THAT FOLLOWS LAST

YEAR'S BEST-SELLER

"INSTINCT."

> WHAT BIRNL BIRTHED THIS

BOOK?

I THINK IT IS A

CONTINUED CONVERSATION OF

OUR UNDERSTANDING OF HOW

THE INSTINCTS GOD PLACED

INSIDE US HAS TO DO WITH

OOUR DESTINY.

AND WHATEVER IS DRAWN OUT

OF US, IS INSTINCTIVELY

DRAWPLACED INSIDE OF YOU.

PEOPLE ARE REALLY TRYING

TO FIND THEIR PURPOSE IN

LIFE.

AND I WROTE THIS BOOK FOR

THAT REASON.

> BECAUSE IT IS PAINFUL

TO BE STUCK.

Reporter: JAKES

BELIEVES THAT EVERYONE HAS

A PURPOSE AND THE

GOD-GIVEN TOOLS TO FULFILL

THEM.

SO WE ASKED WHAT HE

THOUGHT WOULD YO WHAT HE THOUGHT

ABOUT THE DESTINY OF KIM

DAVIS, THE KENTUCKY COUNTY

CLERK JAILED FOR REFUSING

TO ISSUE MARRIAGE LICENSES

TO GAY PEOPLE.

DO YOU THINK SHE STEPPED

INTO HER DESTINY WHEN SHE

MADE A STAND FOR HER

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS?

I THINK IF IT IS A

DESTINY CALL AS MUCH AS IT

IS HER PERSONAL DECISION.

ROSA PARKS MADE A DECISION

THAT AFFECTED THE

TRAJECTORY OF HER WHOLE

LIFE.

I THINK IT IS TOO EARLY TO

EVALUATE WHAT IS GOING TO

COME OUT OF THAT.

Reporter: LIKE OTHER

FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS, FROM

THE AVERAGE CHRISTIAN TO

THE POPE, JAKES IS NO

STRANGER TO CRITICISM.

IT IS OKAY TO BE

CONTROVERSIAL WHEN YOU'RE

A CHRISTIAN.

CRITICISM DOES NOT NEGATE

THE POSITIVE.

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO

CAUSE UNREST TO BRING

ABOUT CHANGE.

ALL OF US DO.

Reporter: JAKE SEES

THE BEST WAY TO COUNTER

ATTACKS ON CHRISTIAN

VALUES AND PEOPLE OF FAITH

IS TO OFFER A POSITIVE

RESPONSE.

THE BIBLE HAS WARNED US

BEFORE THE END TIME WE

WILL HAVE PERSECUTION AND

SOME THINGS CANNOT BE

STOPPED.

BUT I DO THINK THAT SOME

OF THE ATTACK THAT COMES

ON US AS CHRISTIANS IS AS

A RESULT THAT WE DON'T

STAND UP AND TAKE CONTROL

OF THE NARRATIVE THAT

PORTRAYS US IN LIGHTS

OTHER THAN IDENTIFYING US

BY WHAT WE ARE AGAINST,

RATHER THAN KNOWING US BY

WHAT WE ARE FOR.

I THINK ONE OF THE THINGS

WE CAN DO AS CHRISTIANS IS

WE CAN EITHER SCREAM AT

THE DARKNESS, OR WE CAN

LIGHT A CANDLE.

WE CAN COMPLAIN ABOUT THE

IMAGES AND THE WAY THAT WE

ARE PORTRAYED IN THE

MEDIA, OR WE CAN GET

INVOLVED IN MEDIA AND

CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE SEE

US.

THE HOSPITAL STAFF SAID

YOUR SON IS NOT EXPECTED

TO SURVIVE.

Reporter: A CHANGE HE

IS MAKING PRODUCING FILMS

LIKE "HEAVEN IS FOR REAL,"

"SPARKLE," "AND MIRACLES

FROM HEAVEN," TO BE

RELEASED NEXT YEAR.

WILLING TO CHALLENGE

TODAY'S VIEWS, HE TAKES ON

THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA

AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES.

EACH OF THOSE WERE FELT

WHEN A GUNMAN TARGETED

CHRISTIANS AT AN OREGON

COLLEGE CAMPUS.

THOSE STUDENTS WHO WERE

KILLED, MANY WHO

IDENTIFIED THEMSELVES AS

CHRISTIANS -- WAS THAT THE

DESTINY OF RESOLUTION.

WE SALUTE THE FACT THEY

HAD THE COURAGE TO STAND

UP AND ACKNOWLEDGE IF THEY

WERE CHRISTIANS.

I WOULD WONDER IN MY OWN

MIND THAT THERE MAY BE

PEOPLE WHO WERE CHRISTIANS

WHO DID NOT HAVE SUCH

COURAGE, WHO NOW LIVE WITH

THE GUILT AND THE GRIEF

THAT MAYBE I HAVE LET GOD

DOWN, AND PERHAPS YOU

HAVE, BUT THE REALITY IS

PETER DID THAT, TOO, AND

GOD FORGAVE THEM.

BECAUSE A BLESSING GIVEN

TOO SOON IS NOT A BLESSING

AT ALL.

Reporter: AND IT'S

THAT STRAIGHT TALK, MIXED

WITH THE GOSPEL MESSAGE,

THAT IS OPENING A NEW

DOOR.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

TODAY'S SHOW IS CALLED

"COURAGE UNDER FIRE."

JAKES COULD BECOME A

HOUSEHOLD NAME LIKE OPRAH

AND DR. PHIL.

A TV TALK SHOW HAS BEEN

GREEN LIGHTED FOR

SYNDICATION NERS IAC.

NEXT YEAR.

TO BE THE FIRST

MINISTER TO HAVE A DAYTIME

TALK SHOW, IT'S

EXHILARATING.

TO REACH A BROADER

AUDIENCE AND CONVEY OUR

MESSAGES IN A POWERFUL

FORM AND STILL A

CHALLENGING FORM, IT TURNS

THE DOUBT A LITTLE BIT ON

OUR CULTURE.

FOR ME, THIS IS FUN, TO

GET TO SIT DOWN AND

REFLECT ON ALL OF THE

EXPERIENCES I'VE HAD

INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE

CHURCH, AND TO PRESENT

THEM TO THE WORLD IN THE

FORM OF SOLUTIONS THEY CAN

USE TO GALVANIZE THEM AND

RECONSTRUCT, MAYBE, HOW

THEY FEEL ABOUT FAITH.

Reporter: A PASTOR

WHO'S FOOTPRINT IN FAITH

IS EXPANDING INTO NEW

TERRITORY.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, JOHN.

WE'LL LOOK WITH INTEREST.

I SAID HE WAS GOING TO BE

ON OPRAH, AND THE WORD IS

HE MIGHT BE THE NIGHT

OPRAH.

IT HAS BEEN, QUOTE,"GREEN

LIGHTED," SO I DON'T KNOW

WHERE IT WOULD FINALLY

FIND A HOME.

WENDY, YOU MET HIM WHEN

YOU WERE A REPORTER OR

ANCHOR IN CHARLESTON?

Wendy: I THINK IT WAS

ABOUT 20 YEARS AGO.

HE WAS A LOCAL PASTOR DOWN

THE STREET.

I HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH

HIM.

HE HAD A LITTLE BRICK

CHURCH AND I WENT THERE.

IT WAS JUST HIM, NO

ENTOURAGE.

I THINK HE WAS JUST A

PASTOR THEM.

Pat: HE WAS JUST A

PASTOR THEM.

Wendy: AND HE HAD

ALREADY WRITTEN "WOMEN

THOU ART LOOSE," AND HE

GAVE ME FIVE BOOKS, AND I

WAS A PRETTY NEW CHRISTIAN

AT THE TIME, ON I DEVOURED

THOSE BOOKS.

YEARS LATER, I WENT UP TO

HIM AND I SAID, YOU

REMEMBER ME?

AND HE DID, AND I SAID,

WELL, BISHOP, WE'VE COME A

LONG WAY, BUT WE STILL

LOVE WEST VIRGINIA.

Pat: WHO WOULD HAVE

DREAMED THAT THIS GUY AT A

LITTLE CHURCH IN WEST

VIRGINIA WOULD BECOME

INTERNATIONAL?

Wendy: GOD LOVES TO

USE THE SMALL THINGS IN

THIS WORLD.

GOD CAN DO GREAT THINGS

WITH SMALL THINGS.

Pat: HE INDEED CAN.

FOLKS, YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND WE'VE

GOT SOME MORE STUFF COMING

UP.

Wendy: A MAN IS

SUDDENLY STRUCK BY A

MYSTERIOUS ILLNESS.

THE I.C.U. DOCTOR CAME

OUT AND SAID THAT HE WAS

REALLY SICK.

SHE SAID THAT IF THERE WAS

FAMILY THAT WANTED TO SEE

HIM, I NEEDED TO CALL

THEM.

THAT IF HE MADE IT PAST

6:00 THAT NIGHT, THAT SHE

WOULD BE SURPRISED.

Wendy: WATCH HOW THIS

WIFE TOOK ACTION TO SAVE

HER HUSBAND'S LIFE.

> BUT FIRST, PAT'S DOG,

PRINCESS MAGGIE, IS IN THE

HOUSE.

AND SHE'LL JOIN US HERE IN

THE STUDIO AFTER THIS.

STAY WITH US.

HERE SHE COMES.

Pat: WE TALK ABOUT

WORLD EVENTS, BUT

SOMETIMES IT'S

IMPORTANT -- YOU ALL LIKE

PETS.

I'VE HAD MANY PETS.

AND I'M A FAIRLY GOOD

ANIMAL TRAINER.

I'VE HAD HORSES AND WE

HAVE DOGS -- WE'VE HAD A

SERIES OF DOGS.

I WANT TO BRING YOU A

LITTLE DOG WE HAVE AT

HOME.

HER NAME IS PRINCESS

MAGGIE.

MAGGIE, COME ON OVER HERE.

LET HER GO.

HI, BABY.

YOU'RE A BIG LAP DOG.

YOU'RE SUCH A SWEET THING.

YOU WANT TO SAY HI TO

WENDY.

Wendy: HI, PRINCESS

MAGGIE.

WOW, LOOK AT THIS FUR.

THIS IS AMAZING.

IS THIS HER WINTER COAT?

Pat: WELL, IT'S --

YES, IT'S A WINTER COAT.

ALL RIGHT, NOW, HEY.

MAGGIE, THAT'S A GIRL.

THERE YOU GO.

ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO SOME

TRICKS.

LIE DOWN.

ROLL OVER.

ROLL OVER.

THAT'S A SWEETIE.

Wendy: I'VE NEVER

SEEN A DOG WITH THAT MUCH

ENERGY.

Pat: OH, SHE IS

LOADED WITH IT.

IF I COULD GET MY FOOT

LOOSE, I COULD GET HER TO

JUMP.

THERE YOU GO.

JUMP.

THAT'S IT.

THERE YOU GO.

ISN'T SHE SWEET.

Wendy: OH, YOUR MIC

FELL.

Pat: MY MIC'S OFF?

Wendy: I DON'T HAVE A

DOG.

HER COAT FEELS SO NICE.

Pat: SHE'S A SPANIEL.

Wendy: LIKE 100%

SPANIEL?

Pat: AND IRISH WATER

SPANIEL.

Wendy: ARE THEY RARE?

Pat: WELL,

RELATIVELY.

HERE YOU GO, MAGGIE.

LIE DOWN.

ROLL OVER.

THAT'S A GIRL.

Wendy: NOT VER VERY

TALKATIVE THIS MORNING.

OKAY, NOW, YOU SIT.

WOW, SHE DID IT.

WOW!

SHE IS GORGEOUS.

GORGEOUS.

Pat: SIT.

SHAKE HANDS.

SHAKE HANDS.

NO, NOT ROLL OVER.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: SHE FIGURES THAT

GETS HER MORE FOOD.

THEY'RE A LOT OF FUN.

Wendy: THEY ARE.

I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING.

SHE IS SO ENTERTAINING.

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: YOU TRAIN THEM,

AND SHE WANTS TO PLEASE.

ONE MORE TIME.

MAGGIE.

SIT.

JUMP.

ALL RIGHT.

LIE DOWN.

THERE YOU GO.

ALL RIGHT, GO ON WITH

HUMBERTO.

WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

Wendy: MAYBE SHE CAN

STORY.

MAGGIE, CAN YOU HELP ME.

Pat: HERE YOU GO,

HUMBERTO, HERE IS THE

TREAT FOR YOU.

THERE YOU GO.

YOU GO WITH HIM.

Pat: THAT WAS FUN.

Wendy: THAT WAS FUN.

THANKS FOR BRINGING HER

IN.

DOGS ARE GOOD MEDICINE.

SHE'S REALLY SWEET.

Pat: THERE IS A BUNCH

OF STUFF I SHOULD HAVE

TRAINED HER TO DO.

SHE LEARNS ALL KINDS OF

STUFF.

Wendy: VERY SMART AND

GORGEOUS.

I SAW HER LAST TIME WHEN

SHE WAS SHAVED.

Pat: MAN, SHE'S GOT A

SIBERIAN COAT.

ANYHOW, THAT IS OUR LITTLE

DOG.

WE LOVE DOGS AND WE LOVE

PEOPLE AND WE LOVE THE

LORD.

Wendy: WHEN MEGAN'S

HUSBAND, TONY, BECAME

DEATHLY ILL FROM A

MYSTERIOUS VIRUS, SHE KNEW

HE NEEDED A MIRACLE.

DOCTORS SAID HE HAD ONLY

HOURS TO LIVE, SO MEGAN

CALLED ON FAMILY AND

FRIENDS TO FIGHT FOR TONY

IN PRAYER.

TAKE A LOOK.

TONY AND I HAD BEEN

MARRIED FOR EIGHT YEARS.

IT WAS THE END OF 2013,

CHRISTMASTIME, AND HE CAME

HOME WITH A FEVER.

HE STAYED HOME WITH MY

DAUGHTER THAT SATURDAY.

BUT TONY JUST DIDN'T GET

BETTER.

WE WENT UP GOING TO THE

HOSPITAL, AND HE DIAGNOSED

HIM WITH PNEUMONIA, AND

PUT HIM ON ANTIBIOTICS.

WE WENT TO A PARTY, AND

WHEN WE CAME HOME THAT

NIGHT, HE WAS HURTING A

LOT.

I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS AN

EMERGENCY UNTIL AROUND

3:00 HE WOKE ME UP, AND HE

WAS ASKING ME, WHAT IS

THAT BUBBLING SOUND.

I GOT OUT MY STETHOSCOPE

AND I LISTENED TO HIS

CHEST.

YOU COULD HEAR THE

BUBBLING SOUND.

SINCE I WAS A NURSE, I

KNEW HE NEEDED TO GO TO

THE E.R.

THE DOCTORS KEPT ASKING IF

HE HAD TRAVELLED OUTSIDE

OF THE UNITED STATES, HE

WAS EXPOSED TO ANYBODY WHO

WAS PSYCH.

SICK.

THEY WANTED TO TEST HIM

FOR H.I.V. BECAUSE THEY

THOUGHT HE HAD ADVANCED

AIDS BECAUSE HE WAS SO

HEALTHY AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN HE CHEST X-RAY WAS

COMPLETELY COVERED IN

WHITE.

WE STAYED OVERNIGHT IN THE

HOSPITAL, BUT FOR THE MOST

PART HE WAS STABLE.

SO I FELT COMFORTABLE

GOING HOME AND LEAVING HIM

THERE AND GOING AND

PICKING UP OUR DAUGHTER

AND TAKING HER HOME AND

GETTING SOME REST.

THE NEXT MORNING, WHEN I

GOT TO THE HOSPITAL AT

10:00, THEY WERE IN

MID-TRANSPORT, MOVING TONY

TO I.C.U.

WHILE I WAS IN THE WAITING

ROOM WAS WHEN THE I.C.U.

DOCTOR, DR. GEORGE, CAME

OUT AND SAID HE WAS REALLY

SICK AND THEY NEEDED TO

INTUBATE THEM.

WHICH IS A TUBE THEY PUT

IN HIS THROAT TO HELP YOU

BREATHE.

AT THAT POINT I GOT REALLY

SCARED.

I KNEW WHAT HE WAS ABOUT

TO GO THROUGH.

HE DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE.

HE HUGGED ME AND HE KISSED

ME AND TOLD ME HE LOVED

ME.

I PRAYED THAT HE WOULDN'T

REMEMBER ANY OF IT.

I JUST DIDN'T WANT HIM TO

BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO

WAS, LIKE, I WAS AWAKE FOR

ALL OF THAT.

THE NURSING SUPERVISOR

THAT I WORK WITH WAS

THERE, AND SHE OFFERED TO

CALL DOWN MY MANAGER.

AND DR. GEORGE COMES OUT

AGAIN AND LET'S ME KNOW

IT'S NOT GOING WELL.

THAT THEY CAN'T GET THE

TUBE IN HIS THROAT, AND

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

TAKE HIM TO THE O.R. TO DO

IT.

SHE SAID IF THERE WAS

FAMILY THAT WANTED TO SEE

HIM, I NEEDED TO CALL HIM.

IF HE MADE IT PAST 6:00

THAT NIGHT, SHE WOULD BE

SURPRISED.

ALL I COULD PRAY WAS JUST,

JESUS.

I REMEMBER SITTING IN THE

WAITING ROOM AND ROCKING

AND SAYING IT OVER AND

OVER.

WE'D BEEN TRYING FOR FOUR

YEARS TO HAVE A BABY, WHY

DO I GET THE BABY AND NOT

MY HUSBAND?

BY THE MORNING, HIS MOM

AND HIS SISTER WERE BOTH

THERE.

THINGS SEEMED STABLE, BUT

NOT IMPROVING.

THE CHEST X-RAY WASN'T

GETTING ANY BETTER.

THE TESTING THEY HAD DONE

WASN'T SHOWING ANYTHING.

ALL OF THE FLU TESTS THEY

WERE DOING WERE STILL

COMING BACK NEGATIVE.

THE DOCTOR CALLED AND

WANTED TO HAVE A MEETING.

SHE DIDN'T THINK THAT

THERAPY WAS GOING TO HELP

HIM.

AT THIS POINT, THE ONLY

THING THAT COULD POSSIBLY

HELP HIM WAS A MACHINE

ENRICHMENT, THE HEART-LUNG

MACHINE.

THEY TRANSFERRED HIM TO

RICHMOND.

I GOT THERE ABOUT 11:00.

A LADY THAT GOES TO THE

CHURCH I WENT TO MET ME AT

THE ELEVATOR.

GOD HAS AN AMAZING WAY OF

DOING IT, WHERE IT COULD

BE WRITTEN YEARS AND

MONTHS -- A LONG, LONG

TIME AGO, BUT WHEN YOU

READ IT, IT COULD BE AP

APPLICABLE TO YOUR DAY.

HE KIND OF STABILIZED AND

DIDN'T HAVE TO BE PUT ON A

BYPASS MACHINE.

BUT NOT MOVING, HIS

KIDNEYS WERE SUFFERING.

EVERY NIGHT AROUND 3:00,

HE WOULD END UP WITH

SOMETHING GOING ON WITH

HIS HEART.

IT KIND OF BECAME A

WAITING GAME.

WE GOT THE CULTURES BACK

THEY HAD TAKEN.

IT CAME BACK H-1 N-1

POSITIVE.

THAT'S WHY NON OF THE

ANTIBIOTICS WERE WORKING.

WE HAD TO GIVE IT TIME TO

GET IT OUT OF HIS SYSTEM.

I KNOW HE WAS GOING TO

SURVIVE, BUT IN MY MEDICAL

EXPERIENCE I HAD GEARED

MYSELF UP FOR TONY HAVING

DEFICITS IN HIS LUNGS,

KIDNEY ISSUES.

WHAT DID OUR NORMAL LOOK

LIKE AFTER BEING INTUBATED

FOR NINE DAYS?

THE LAST THING I

REMEMBER IS THAT IT WAS

NEW YEAR'S.

THE NEXT THING I REMEMBER

IS WAKING UP, AND I COULD

SEE OUT THE WINDOW, AND

I'M, LIKE, THIS ISN'T THE

SAME CITY I WAS IN.

AND THEN I LOOK OVER

AGAIN, AND THERE IS MY

MOTHER, WHO LIVES IN

ANOTHER STATE.

AND THERE IS MY SISTER,

WHO ALSO LIVES IN OTHER

STATE.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WHAT ARE

YOU ALL DOING HERE?

THE DOCTOR THAT

DISCHARGED US SAID HE HAD

NEVER SEEN SOMEONE GO

THROUGH WHAT TONY GO

THROUGH AND GO HOME

WITHOUT ANY MEDICATION.

IT WAS JUST REALLY A

MANIFESTATION OF ALL OF

THE WORK THAT GOD HAD

DONE.

EVERYTHING WAS ALREADY

HEALING.

EVERYTHING WAS ALREADY

BEING TAKEN CARE OF.

HIS LUNGS ARE FINE.

HIS HEART IS FINE.

HIS KIDNEYS RETURNED

COMPLETELY BACK TO NORMAL.

IT IS COMPLETELY A MIRACLE

THAT HE WALKED AWAY FROM

IT AS IF IT NEVER

HAPPENED.

I THINK GOD WAS TEACHING

ME HOW MUCH HE IS IN

CONTROL, AND HOW MUCH I AM

NOT IN CONTROL.

LIKE, THIS IS NURSING.

THAT'S WHAT I DO.

IF I WOULD HAVE LOOKED AT

TONY ON PAPER, I WOULD

HAVE BEEN, NOPE, HE'S NOT

GOING TO MAKE IT.

TO SEE THE LORD SAY,

THAT'S WHAT YOU THINK, BUT

THIS IS WHAT I CAN DO.

EVERYTHING IS IN HIS

HANDS, WHETHER IT COMES

INTO YOUR LIFE NEGATIVELY

OR POSITIVELY, IT COMES IN

WITH HIS LOVE.

WE NOW HAVE ESTHER, WHO

IS 10 MONTHS OLD.

WE'RE ENJOYING THE LITTLE

THINGS AND TRYING NOT TO

BE SO RUSHED.

JUST SAYING I LOVE YOU AND

MAKING THE MOMENTS COUNT.

NO MATTER WHAT

CIRCUMSTANCES YOU'RE IN,

GOD PROVIDES.

GOD HEALS.

GOD BROUGHT ME THROUGH, SO

HE IS NOT DONE WITH ME

YET.

Wendy: THAT STORY

HITS CLOSE TO HOME HERE AT

CBN, PAT, BECAUSE WE WERE

PRAYING FOR TONY.

TONY WORKS HERE.

HE IS A DEAR BROTHER.

WE WERE PRAYING AND

BOMBARDING HEAVEN.

SUCH A MIRACLE.

Pat: AND WE'VE GOT A

COUPLE OF OTHERS.

THIS IS ALANA.

SHE DAMAGED HER EARDRUM

AND SHE WAS TAKEN TO THE

DOCTOR AND GIVEN

MEDICATION, AND THE

CONDITION DIDN'T IMPROVE.

HER MOTHER WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAMME PROGRAM, AND SHE

HEARD WENDY GIVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT A DAMAGED

EAR.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOUR EAR

NOW AND YOU'LL BE HEALED.

AND SHE CLAIMED IT FOR HER

DAUGHTER.

Wendy: THIS ONE SAYS

SHE HAD A MAMMOGRAM AND

SHE HAD A HISTORY OF

BREAST CANCER.

THE DOCTOR ORDERED AN

ULTRASOUND, AND SHE WAS

CONCERNED.

HOURS BEFORE THE SCHEDULED

ULTRASOUND, SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

WHEN SHE HEARD YOU, PAT,

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE:

TUMORS ARE BEING HEALED

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD FOR

HERSELF, AND SHE

IMMEDIATELY FELT A WARM

SENSATION RUNNING THROUGH

HER BODY.

LATER THAT DAY, IN THE

ULTRASOUND, THERE WAS NO

TRACE OF CANCER FOUND IN

HER BODY.

THE TECHNICIAN SAID, I

THINK YOU ARE HEALED.

Pat: THANK GOD.

I REMEMBER THE OTHER DAY

WHEN I WAS READING, JESUS

SAID, O FATHER, LORD OF

HEAVEN AND EARTH -- LORD

OF HEAVEN AND EARTH,

THAT'S WHO HE IS.

EVERYTHING THAT IS IN THIS

EARTH BELONGS TO HIM.

HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO

UNDERSTAND.

JESUS SAID, HAVE FAITH IN

GOD.

WHEN YOU STAND BEFORE GOD,

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE

SO WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

CANCER?

OF COURSE GOD CAN HEAL

CANCER.

DO HAVE YOU A BUSTED

EARDRUM?

OF COURSE HE CAN HEAL

THAT.

YOU HAVE CRIPPLING

ARTHRITIS?

OF COURSE HE CAN HEAL YOU.

CAN HE HEAL YOUR MARRIAGE?

YES.

CAN HE TAKE CARE OF YOUR

MONEY?

YES.

THE ONE THING HE CAN'T DO

FOR YOU IS HE WILL NOT

DENY HIMSELF.

OTHER THAN THAT, HE'LL DO

EVERYTHING.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS.

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE GOD

FOR YOU, AND WE WILL JUST

TRUST GOD FOR A TOUCH OF

GOD IN YOUR LIFE.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST AT THIS

MOMENT.

AND WE BELIEVE GOD, FOR

PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE

WHO ARE HURTING AND

SUFFERING.

THERE IS AN ARTHRITIC HIP

RIGHT NOW.

PUT YOUR HAND ON THAT HIP

RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT.

YOU'LL FEEL HEAT AND POWER

GOING THROUGH THAT HIP,

AND YOU ARE HEALED IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH!

Wendy: THERE IS A MAN

WHO IS TOUCHING YOUR LEG.

YOU'RE ASKING FOR HEALING,

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

VIRAL CONDITION AND IT IS

CAUSING WHAT IS CALLED

NIGHT SWEATS.

AND YOU WAKE UP SOAKING

WET AND YOU'RE WEAK AND

DEBILITATED.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS COURSING

THROUGH YOUR BODY AND YOU

ARE HEALED.

THERE IS SOMEBODY ELSE

WITH, I BELIEVE IT IS

LEUKEMIA, AND THE DOCTOR

IS HEALING YOU.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH A REALLY BAD

FOOT FUNGUS, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

AND THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE

WITH A REALLY ANNOYING

TWITCH GOING ON IN YOUR

FACE, AND GOD IS TAKING

THAT AWAY IN JESUS' NAME.

Pat: AND THERE ARE A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE AFRAID OF

LOSING LIA THEIR JOB.

YOU HEAR ALL OF THE BAD

NEWS, AND YOU'RE SCARED.

GOD IS GOING TO FILL YOU

WITH LOVE, PERFECT LOVE,

AND FEAR IS GONE.

I BIND THE SPIRIT OF FEAR

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THERE SHALL BE HOPE AND

THERE SHALL BE JOY IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Pat: CALL US AND TELL

US WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN

YOUR LIFE.

WE WOULD LOVE TO PRAY FOR

YOU, IF YOU NEED PRAYER.

1-800-759-0700.

> WELL, THE WORLD SERIES

IS COMING UP -- HAS IT

STARTED YET?

Wendy: SPORTS IS NOT

MY AREA.

IT'S NOT MY AREA.

Pat: JUST CLIMBING

TALL MOUNTAINS.

SOMEBODY?

TONIGHT.

Pat: TONIGHT.

OKAY.

THE WORLD SERIES.

THEY'RE GETTING READY TO

PLAY BEFORE IT GETS TOO

MUCH COLDER, AND WENDY HAS

A STORY ABOUT A VERY

IMPORTANT PLAYER.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT,

THE SECOND BASEMAN WHO'S

BREAKOUT PERFORMANCE IS

H.I.VHELPING TO TAKE THE METS

TO THEIR FIRST WORLD

SERIES IN 15 YEARS.

I THINK THAT I WOULDN'T

BE HERE WITHOUT WHAT THE

LORD HAD DONE FOR ME IN MY

LIFE.

HE PUT ME ON THIS STAGE,

THE GREATEST ATHLETIC

STAGE IN ALL OF THE WORLD,

FOR A REASON.

Wendy: YOU'LL FIND

OUT WHAT THAT REASON IS,

COMING UP LATER.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

ISIS MILITANTS IN SYRIA

HAVE KILLED THREE CAPTIVES

BY BLOWING THEM UP.

ACTIVISTS SAY THE

TERRORISTS TIED THE

CAPTIVES TO ROMAN ERA

COLUMNS AND THEN BLEW THEM

UP WITH EXPLOSIVES.

THE AN ACTIVIST SAYS THE

KILLINGS TOOK PLACE AT AN AN

ARCHEOLOGICAL SITE.

THE IDENTITIES OF THOSE

KILLED REMAINS UNKNOWN.

PAT?

Pat: I AM JUST

APPALLED, AS YOU ARE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE MONSTERS.

AND I HONESTLY THINK IT IS

TIME WE STOP -- QUIT THIS

FICTION, LIKE I'M RUNNING

FOR OFFICE, I'M A

POLITICIAN, I HAVE MADE A

PROMISE THAT I WILL NOT

PUT BOOTS ON THE GROUND.

WE NEED A STRIKE FORCE.

THESE ARE, YOU KNOW,

TERRORISTS RUNNING AROUND

IN COTTON-PICKING PICKUP

TRUCKS.

I SAW, THE OTHER DAY, A

PIECE OF "60 MINUTES," AND

WE ARE USING MULTI-MILLION

STEALTH FIGHTERS AND

BOMBERS TO GO AFTER GUYS

IN PICKUP TRUCKS.

IT IS JUST INSANE.

WHY DON'T WE GO IN THERE

AND WIPE THEM OUT.

THE STUFF THEY'RE DOING IS

APPALLING.

IT'S A CURSE ON THE ENTIRE

HUMAN RIGHTS.

ALL RIGHT, EFREM, KIDNAP

GOING.

EfremKEEPGOING.

Efrem: THE DEATH TOLL

IN AFGHANISTAN IS NOW 300

AND EXPECTED TO RISE.

THEY'RE STRUGGLING TO

REACH REMOTE AREAS HIT BY

THE QUAKE.

MOST OF THE DEATHS SO FAR

HAPPENED IN PAKISTAN.

THE 7.5 QUAKE INJURED

THOUSANDS AND DAMAGED

NEARLY 2500 HOMES.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN ALWAYS

GET THE LATEST FROM CBN

NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB," AND THAT'S COMING

UP RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL,

BASEBALL -- SINCE THE TIME

OF SHOELESS JOE JACKSON, I

THINK THE CUBS CAME CLOSER

TO WINNING A WORLD SERIES,

AND THEY WERE ALL GEARED

UP FOR IT.

BUT IT WASN'T TO BE.

THE METS WIPED THEM OUT.

BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

15 YEARS, THE NEW YORK

METS ARE NOW IN THE WORLD

SERIES, AND THEY CAN THANK

SECOND BASEMAN DANIEL FUR

MMURPHY FOR THAT.

HE HAS BEEN A QUIET HERO

FOR MOST OF HIS CAREER IN

QUEENS, UNTIL HIS BREAKOUT

PERFORMANCE IN THIS YEAR'S

PLAYOFFS.

HE HAS DONE THINGS EVEN

BABE RUTH HASN'T DONE.

HE HIT A HOMERUN IN EVERY

ONE OF SIX GAMES.

THE BIMBO DIDN'T DO THAT.

NO WAY.

SIX GAMES.

AND AS HE TOLD SEAN BROWN,

THERE IS A PEACE ALONG

WITH THE PRESSURE THAT

DRIVES HIM TO THE PLATE.

Reporter: NEW YORK

METS' DANIEL MURPHY HAS

BEEN MAKING WAVES THIS

WHOLE SEASON.

AND THE LAST SIX GAMES, HE

HAS DONE THIS...

[CHEERING]

Reporter: NOW THE

METS ARE HEADED TO THEIR

FIRST WORLD SERIES SINCE

2000.

BUT WITH ALL OF THE

ACCOLADES THAT COME WITH

SUCCESS, DANIEL SAYS HE IS

NOT ONLY HERE TO HELP HIS

TEAM WIN GAMES.

I THINK THAT, YOU KNOW,

I WOULDN'T BE HERE WITHOUT

WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE FOR

ME IN MY LIFE, AND THE

SITUATION HE HAS PUT ME IN

WITH MY FAMILY, THROUGH

HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE,

AND WITH THIS

ORGANIZATION.

HE HAS PUT ME,

FORTUNATELY, ON THIS

STAGE, ON THE GREATEST

ATHLETIC STAGE IN ALL OF

THE WORLD, FOR A REASON.

AND I THINK THAT REASON IS

TO TRY TO BE A LIGHT.

Reporter: DANIEL

BECAME A CHRISTIAN WHILE

IN HIGH SCHOOL.

I ACTUALLY CAME TO THE

LORD IN A YOUTH GROUP TRIP

TO NORTH CAROLINA, TO A

PLACE CALLED THE WILD.

YOU HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT IT

IN THE YOUTH GROUP FROM

SOME OF THE KIDS THAT HAVE

GONE BEFORE, AND YOU'RE

EXCITED, BUT I WAS AT THE

AGE WHERE I WAS ABOUT 14

OR 15 YEARS OLD, THAT I

DIDN'T WANT TO GO OUT

THERE KNOWING I WAS GOING

TO MAKE A DECISION, BUT

THERE WAS SO MUCH -- THE

LORD'S SPIRIT OVERCAME ME

SO MUCH, THAT YOU COULDN'T

RESIST.

Reporter: A FEW YEARS

LATER, DANIEL WAS OFF TO

JACKSONVILLE, UNIVERSITY,

WHERE HE HAD AN AMAZING

COLLEGE CAREER.

IN HIS JUNIOR YEAR, HE WAS

DRAFTED BY THE METS.

BUT MAKING THE ADJUSTMENT

FROM COLLEGE WAS

DIFFICULT.

THAT WAS REALLY THE

FIRST TIME I HAD EVER BEEN

ON MY OWN.

IT WAS A VERY EYE-OPENING

EXPERIENCE.

NOW I CAN KIND OF DO WHAT

I WANT.

I HAVE A CHOICE WHETHER OR

NOT I WANT TO BE ON

CHAPLAIN ON SUNDAY BECAUSE

NOBODY SEES.

I HAVE A CHOICE WHETHER OR

NOT I WANT TO GET ALONG

WITH THE LORD BECAUSE

NOBODY SEES IT.

MY DAD ALWAYS ASKS ME, ARE

YOU READING YOUR BIBLE

LATELY?

I'M TRYING.

I'M TRYING.

HE ALWAYS STAYS ON ME

ABOUT THAT.

Reporter: ANY

PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL

PLAYER CAN TELL YOU

PLAYING IN THE MAJORS IS

DIFFICULT, BUT PLAYING IN

NARCOTINEW YORK IS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT ALL TOGETHER.

I THINK THERE IS SUCH A

PRESSURE TO WIN, THE FANS

CAN GET ON YOU.

SOMETIMES I'D SAY THAT I

DON'T ALWAYS APPROACH

FAILURE THE WAY I SHOULD.

I DON'T ALWAYS TAKE IT THE

WAY I SHOULD.

YOU GET VERY FRUSTRATED.

AND SOMETIMES I GET

FRUSTRATED WITH MYSELF AND

DO THINGS I SHOULDN'T DO.

AND I THINK THAT

IMPULSIVELY BECAUSE I GET

CAUGHT UP IN THE MOMENT SO

MUCH.

Reporter: WHAT TYPE

OF THINGS?

I'VE MADE SOME

MISTAKES, AND I HAVE TO --

THE FIRST THING I WANT TO

DO IS VERBALLY I WANT TO

EXPRESS IT, AND NOT THE

WAY I SHOULD.

I HAVE TO TAKE A MOMENT

AND TRY NOT TO LASH OUT.

TAKE IT IN, ABSORB IT, AND

THEN JUST KIND OF LET IT

GO BY THE WAYSIDE.

Reporter: AS THE METS

CONTINUED THEIR PURSUIT

FOR THEIR FIRST WORLD

CHAMPIONSHIP SINCE 1986,

DANIEL SAYS IT IS HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THAT

HELPS HIM DEAL WITH THE

PRESSURE OF IT ALL.

IT IS JUST THE PEACE

THAT YOU GET.

IT IS SOMETHING YOU CAN'T

DESCRIBE UNTIL YOU HAVE

IT.

I THINK WHEN YOU DON'T

HAVE IT, YOU GO OUT FOR

YOUR OW ENTIRE LIFE SEARCHING

FOR IT.

IS IT FAME?

IS IT FORTUNE?

IS IT WOMEN?

BUT WHEN YOU FIND THE

LORD, IT IS THE PEACE THAT

YOU HAVE.

WE, AS HUMAN BEINGS,

SEARCH FOR THAT ALL OF THE

TIME, BUT YOU DON'T REALLY

FIND IT UNTIL YOU FIND THE

LORD.

Pat: THAT'S A GOOD

SERMON.

I HOPE YOU'LL TAKE IT IN.

SOME OF YOU IN THE

AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW, YOU

WANT -- THERE IS NO PEACE,

SAYETH MY GOD FOR THE

WICKED.

THERE IS NO REST, NO

PEACE.

AND DANIEL HAS FOUND IT,

AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

CHAOS OF WORLD SERIES

BASEBALL.

HE HAS FOUND ENOUGH PEACE

TO SUCCEED DRAMATICALLY IN

WHAT HE IS DOING.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A

PRO BALLPLAYER, YOU DON'T

HAVE TO BE A MOVIE

ACTRESS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO

BE A FAMOUS AUTHOR, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO BE A

PREACHER; ALL YOU'VE GOT

TO BE IS BE YOU.

AND YOU NEED A SAVIOR.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE

SOMEBODY THAT LEADS YOU TO

THE LORD, PRAY A PRAYER

WITH YOU, I WANT YOU TO

CALL THE TELEPHONE NUMBER

ON YOUR SCREEN.

IT IS TOLL-FREE:

1-800-759-0700.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO

MONEY INVOLVED IN IT.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I

WANT TO MEET JESUS.

AND SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO

WOULD BE MORE THAN

DELIGHTED TO INTRODUCE YOU

TO THE KING OF KINGS AND

THE LORD OF LORDS.

WE'VE GOT SOME QUESTIONS

IN THE REMAINING FEW

MOMENTS OF THIS PROGRAM.

AND WENDY HAS THEM FOR US.

Wendy: COMING UP,

WE'RE GOING TO "BRING IT

ON."

JAY SAYS, "IF IT IS GOD'S

WILL THAT EVERYBODY BE

HEALED, WHY DO MILLIONS OF

CHRISTIANS DIE FROM

ILLNESSES EVERY DAY?"

PAT WILL TACKLE THAT FROM

OUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS, AND

MUCH MORE.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

JAY WRITES, "IF IT IS

GOD'S WILL EVERYBODY

SHOULD BE HEALED, WHY DO

MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS DIE

FROM ILLNESSES EACH DAY?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

IT IS NOT GOD'S WILL THAT

ANYBODY SHOULD PERISH.

GOD WANTS EVERYBODY SAVED.

HE WANTS EVERYBODY IN

HEAVEN.

BUT THEY STILL HAVE FREE

WILL AND THEY CAN REJECT

HIM.

JESUS HEALED EVERYBODY WHO

CAME TO HIM FOR HEALING.

HE NEVER TURNED ANYBODY

DOWN.

BUT THE BIBLE DOES NOT SAY

GOD WANTS EVERYBODY

HEALED.

Wendy: KEVIN SAYS IN

NOVEMBER 1999, I WAS AT A

MEN'S PRAYER MEETING WHEN

MY TONGUE STARTED TO

TINGLE, AND I STARTED TO

SPEAK IN A LANGUAGE I HAD

NEVER HEARD BEFORE.

I WAS SPEAKING NON-STOP

FOR ABOUT THREE HOURS.

I KNOW I WAS SPEAKING IN

TONGUES BUT WONDER WHY GOD

HAD GIVEN ME THIS GIFT AS

I DO NOT DESERVE IT.

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT I AM

SAYING.

AM I SUPPOSED TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M

SAYING?"

Pat: THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAYS, HE WHO SPEAKS IN

TONGUE EDIFIES HIMSELF.

YOU BUILD UP YOUR OWN

SPIRIT AND YOU ARE

SPRAYING.

THE SPIRIT IS PRAYING WITH

GROANINGS THAT CANNOT BE

UTTERED.

PAUL SAID, I WOULD RATHER

SPEAK 10 WORDS OF

UNDERSTANDING THAN A

THOUSAND WITH THE TONGUE.

YOU DON'T KNOW, BUT YOU'RE

BUILDING UP YOURSELF.

YOU SAY YOU DON'T DESERVE

IT?

ARE YOU KIDDING?

NOBODY DESERVES ANYTHING.

YOU AND I AND WENDY AND

EVERYBODY DESERVES HELL.

WE HAVE EARNED IT, AND

THAT IS WHAT WE DESERVE.

BUT GOD SAYS, I LOVE YOU.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU

GRACE.

I'M GOING TO FORGIVE YOU

AND I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU

A PART IN HEAVEN.

DO WE DESERVE IT?

NO WAY.

AND THE PRAYER IS, GOD, BE

MERCIFUL TO ME, A SINNER.

YOU RECEIVED SOMETHING

WONDERFUL IN THE LORD.

CONTINUE TO EXCESS SIRE EXERCISE WHAT

THE LORD HAS GIVEN YOU.

THAT IS A SUPER NATURAL

RAL THING THAT HAPPENED TO

YOU.

Wendy: AMEN.

THAT'S A GIFT.

BETTY SAYS, "CAN YOU

EXPLAIN GENESIS 1: 27,

THAT SAYS GOD CREATED MAN

AND WOMAN ON THE SIXTH

DAY.

AND THEN IT SAYS HE

CREATED ADAM AFTER HE

CREATED MAN AND WOMAN.

I'M CONFUSED.

I DO HOPE YOU WILL BE ABLE

TO HELP."

Pat: YOU READ A BOOK

AND IT SAYS, THE

"CHRONICLES OF NARNIA",

AND IN THE NEXT LINE YOU

READ, TWO LITTLE CHILDREN

WENT OUT AND WENT INTO A

MAGIC KINGDOM CALLED

NARNIA.

THEY HAVE IN LITERATURE A

HEADING.

IT IS A HEADING.

AND IT SAYS, THIS IS GOING

TO TELL YOU HOW GOD

CREATED MAN, AND HERE IS

WHAT HE DID.

THAT'S A LITERARY DEVICE.

IT IS CALLED

PARTICULARIZATION, IF

YOU'D LIKE TO GET THE

FANCY TERM FOR IT.

IT IS NOT TWO SEPARATE

THINGS.

I APPRECIATE YOU BEING

WITH US TODAY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PROVERBS

22: "TRAIN UP A CHILD IN

THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND

WHEN HE IS OLD, HE WILL

NOT DEPART FROM US."

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND
