COMING UP, THE UNHOLY

ALLIANCE.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND

THAT.

Gordon: RUSSIA IS

BUILDING ALLIES IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

Gordon: WITH ONE

TARGET IN MIND.

THAT'S THEIR LONG-TERM,

STRATEGIC GOAL.

Gordon: PLUS, SHE IS

KNOWN TO MILLIONS AS THE

MONEY-SAVING MOM.

AND NOW SHE WANTS TO SHOW

YOU MORE THAN JUST HOW TO

PINCH PENNIES.

CRYSTAL PAYNE'S

BEST-SELLING ADVICE ON HOW

TO BECOME A MONEY-MAKING

MOM, ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE EVIDENCE SEEMS TO BE

THAT A BOMB BROUGHT DOWN

THE RUSSIAN JETLINER.

AND IF THAT'S THE CASE, IT

COULD MEAN ISIS IS

BECOMING AN EVEN MORE

DEADLY AND POWERFUL

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

Terry: THE REPORTS OF

A POSSIBLE BOMB ON THE

PLANE HAVE LED TO CALLS

FOR TOUGHER SECURITY

MEASURES AT AIRPORTS

AROUND THE WORLD.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: THERE IS

GROWING EVIDENCE THAT

METROJET FLIGHT 9268 WAS

BROUGHT DOWN BY A BOMB,

PLANTED BY ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS.

President Obama: I

THINK THERE IS A

POSSIBILITY THAT THERE WAS

A BOMB ON BOARD.

AND WE'RE TAKING THAT VERY

SERIOUSLY.

Charlene: BRITISH

PRIME MINISTER DAVID

CAMERON SAID ON THURSDAY

IT WAS MORE LIKELY THAN

NOT THAT AN EXPLOSIVE

DEVICE BROUGHT THE

JETLINER DOWN.

THE RUSSIAN PLAN CRASHED

OVER THE SINAI PENINSULA

ON SATURDAY, HEADING FROM

THE EGYPTIAN RESORT OF

SHARM EL-SHEIKH TO ST.

PETERSBURG, KILLING ALL

224 PEOPLE ON BOARD.

ISIS HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY FOR

BRINGING DOWN THE PLANE,

SAYING THE ATTACK WAS

RETALIATION FOR RUSSIA'S

AIR CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE

TERROR GROUP AND OTHERS IN

SYRIA.

THEY WARNED RUSSIAN

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN

THAT THEY WOULD ALSO

TARGET HIM AS HOME.

IF ISIS DID BOMB THE

PLANE, IT WOULD BE THE

SUNNI EXTREMISTS' LARGEST

ACT OF NATIONAL TERRORISM

SO FAR, AND BRINGS INTO

QUESTION THEIR

CAPABILITIES AND WHAT KIND

OF TERRORIST ACTS THEY

COULD CARRY OUT IN THE

FUTURE.

ERICK STAKELBECK SAYS THE

POSSIBILITY THAT ISIS

BEHIND THE PLANE CRASH HAS

TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

YES, THERE IS AN

ISLAMIC INSURGENTCY LED BY

A GROUP GOING ON IN

NORTHERN SINAI WHERE THIS

PLANE CRASHED.

SO TO SEE THIS

ISIS-AFFILIATED GROUP

BASED IN SINAI CLAIMING

RESPONSIBILITY TWICE, I

THINK WE HAVE TO EXAMINE

IT VERY CLOSELY.

Reporter: ANALYSTS

SAY THE SINAI ATTACK WOULD

BE A FIRST, AND WOULD

SIGNAL THAT THE ISLAMIC

STATE HAS BECOME

INTERESTED IN JOINING THE

TERRIFYING GLOBAL

TERRORISM ATTACKS.

AS CBN'S GARY LANE POINTED

OUT, INVESTIGATORS ARE

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW

THE TERRORISTS COULD HAVE

GOTTEN A BOMB ON BOARD THE

PLANE.

Reporter: SO WHAT

THESE AVIATION EXPERTS

FROM THE U.K. ARE GOING TO

BE LOOKING AT IS WAS IT

POSSIBLY SOMEONE WHO

WORKED FOR ONE OF THE

AIRLINES, A GROUNDS CREW

PERSON, WHO ACTUALLY WENT

IN AND PLANTED THAT BOMB?

Charlene: FORENSIC

EVIDENCE FROM THE CRASH

SITE ARE STILL BEING

ANALYZED.

AT THE SAME TIME, BACK IN

RUSSIA, BURIALS HAVE BEGUN

FOR THOSE KILLED IN THE

CRASH, A REMINDER OF THE

ENHANCED SECURITY THAT IS

BEING DISCUSSED AROUND THE

WORLD.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: WELL, IF ALL

OF THIS IS TRUE, THEN THIS

HORRIBLE TRAGEDY IS THE

RESPONSIBILITY OF ISIS.

AND THEN THEY'RE NO LONGER

THE J.V.TEAM.

THEY'VE GONE PROFESSIONAL

AND THEY'VE GONE GLOBAL.

AND WHAT KIND OF REACH

WOULD THEY HAVE?

WOULD THEY BE ABLE TO DO

THAT ON PLANES AROUND THE

WORLD?

THIS IS A STARTLING CHANGE

IN THEIR TACTICS.

THEY'RE NO LONGER JUST

TRYING TO GETTE GET TERRITORY IN

SYRIA AND IRAQ.

NO LONGER JUST TRYING TO

GET OTHER AFFILIATED

GROUPS.

THEY'RE GOING AFTER THESE

HIGH-PROFILE EVENTS, JUST

LIKE al-QAEDA.

AND THIS MEANS A WHOLE NEW

GAME FOR BOTH THE FORCES

THAT ARE TRYING TO ATTACK

THEM IN SYRIA AND IRAQ, AS

WELL AS SECURITY AROUND

THE WORLD.

> IN OTHER NEWS,

PRO-LIFE AMERICANS ARE

GETTING READY FOR NEXT

YEAR'S ELECTION.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN NEWS

ROOM.

EFREM?

Efrem: GORDON,

ORGANIZERS FOR THE ANNUAL

MARCH FOR LIFE ARE WORKING

TO RECRUIT NEW SOLDIERS IN

THE FIGHT AGAINST

ABORTION.

NEXT YEAR THEY HOPE TO

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,

WHICH IS LIKELY TO PIT A

FEMALE PRO-LIFE CHAMPION

AGAINST A PRO-LIFE.

THEY WANT THE COUNTRY TO

KNOW PRO-LIFE AND

PRO-WOMEN GO HAND AND

HAND.

Reporter: MOST

POLITICAL OBSERVERS AGREE

THAT HILLARY CLINTON WILL

BE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE.

IF SO, THE PUBLIC CAN

EXPECT SPEECHES AND ADS ON

HOW REPUBLICANS WAGE A WAR

ON WOMEN WHEN THEY TRY TO

LIMIT ABORTIONS.

THOSE AT THIS CAPITOL HILL

GATHERING ANNOUNCED THE

THEME IS PRO-LIFE AND

PRO-WOMEN GO HAND-IN-HAND.

THIS EVENT IS ALL ABOUT

PROVING IT IS NOT ABOUT

WAGING A WAR ON WOMEN.

WE KEEP HEARING IN THE

MEDIA, ESPECIALLY WITH THE

UPCOMING ELECTION, THAT IN

ORDER FOR SOMEONE TO BE

PRO-WOMEN, THEY HAVE TO BE

PRO-ABORTION OR

PRO-CHOICE.

WE SAY THAT THE OPPOSITE

IS THE CASE, THAT NO WOMAN

IN HER RIGHT MIND SHOULD

EVER BE PUT IN A CORNER

LIKE THAT, TO MAKE A

CHOICE LIKE ABORTION.

Reporter: THESE

LEADERS ARE OUTRAGED THAT

ABORTION SUPPORTERS WERE

ABLE TO HIJACK THE

FEMINIST CAUSE.

FOR SOME CRAZY REASON,

SUPPORTERS OF LEGAL

ABORTION WERE ABLE TO MAKE

THEIR CAUSE SYNONYMOUS

WITH WOMEN.

IT IS JUST THE HEIGHT OF

IRONY, WHEN YOU THINK THAT

WHAT THEY DID,

ESSENTIALLY, WAS TREAT

WOMEN AS VICTIMS, DO

NOTHING TO EMPOWER THEM.

THEY HAVE NEVER SET UP A

CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTER, A

POST-ABORTION HEALING, AND

BASICALLY AFFIRM A MALE

MODEL OF HUMAN SEXUALITY.

SEX, NO BABIES.

I FIND IT SAD.

PEACE BEGINS IN THE WOMB.

WE BELIEVE IN PEACEFUL

COEXISTENCE BETWEEN MOTHER

AND BABY.

WE KNOW THAT BEING

PRO-WOMAN MEANS BEING

PRO-LIFE.

PRO-LIFE IS PRO-WOMAN,

PRO-CHILD AND PRO-WOMAN.

Reporter: JANUARY 22

WILL MARK THE DAY IN 1974

WHEN THE SUPREME COURT

LEGALIZED ABORTION.

PAUL STRAND, CAPITOL HILL.

Efrem: CONGRESS IS

INVESTIGATING WHY MORE

THAN HALF OF THE INSURANCE

COOPS SET UP UNDER

OBAMACARE HAVE FAILED.

THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE

AN ALTERNATIVE TO PRIVATE

INSURANCE.

ONE CO-OP IN VERMONT

FAILED BEFORE IT ENROLLED

A SINGLE PERSON.

IN ALL, THE GOVERNMENT

HANDED OUT $2.4 BILLION IN

LOANS.

IT WAS DESIGNED TO FOSTER

INSURANCE COMPETITION,

WHICH EVEN OPPONENTS OF

OBAMACARE APPLAUDED.

BUT FROM THE START, THERE

WERE WARNING SIGNS THAT

THE PROGRAM IS FINANCIALLY

RISKY.

AS EARLY AT 2011, THEY

PREDICTED THAT 36% OF THE

LOANS WOULD GO UNPAID.

IN 2012, THEY PREDICTED

TAXPAYERS WOULD LOOSE 43%

OF LOANS OFFERED THROUGH

THE PROGRAM.

AND THE FOLLOWING YEAR,

THEY REPORTED A CONCERN

ABOUT CO-OPS' FINANCIAL

STABILITY AND ABILITY TO

REPAY LOANS.

Efrem: AND OFFICIALS

DON'T EXPECT TAXPAYERS

WILL EVER RECOVER THE

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS LOST

SO FAR.

> EARLIER THIS WEEK,

THEY ANNOUNCED ONE OF THE

MOST IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES

IN YEARS.

IT ANSWERS A QUESTION

ABOUT THE ANCIENT CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

CHRIS MITCHELL CLYSM BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: ACROSS FROM

THE OLD CITY WALLS,

ISRAELI ARCHEOLOGISTS HAVE

BEEN DIGGING FOR NEARLY A

DECADE.

10 YEARS AGO, THIS WAS A

PARKING LOT.

NOW IT IS THE LARGEST

EXCAVATION IN THE CITY.

AND ISRAELI ARCHEOLOGISTS

SAY IT IS EXPLAINS ONE OF

THE BIGGEST MYSTERIES IN

THE ANCIENT CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

THE MYSTERY: FOR MORE THAN

100 YEARS THEY SEARCHED

FOR THE GREEK FORTRESS

KNOWN AS THE MACCABI.

AND NOW THEY SAY THEY HAVE

FOUND IT.

WE CAN BE MORE THAN

POSITIVE THAT WE ARE

FACING PART OF THE

STRONGHOLD THAT USED TO

HOLD THE UPPER PART OF THE

CITY OF DAVID IN THE TIME

OF ANTIACUS THE FOURTH.

Reporter: HE BUILT

THE MORE THAN 50-FEET TALL

FORTRESS IN ORDER TO

PROTECT JERUSALEM.

AFTER HE DEFILED THE

JERUSALEM TEMPLE, THEY

REVOLTED.

THE EXCAVATION DISCOVERED

EVIDENCE OF THAT REVOLT.

ARROWHEADS WITH THE IN

INSCRIPTIONS OF ANTIACTUS.

IN THE BOOK OF

MACCABEES IT SAYS THAT THE

ACWI FORTIS IS BUILT IN

THE CITY OF DAVID.

TODAY, BECAUSE OF THIS

DISCOVERY, WE CAN CONNECT

OTHER ELEMENTS THAT WERE

ISOLATED THUS FAR AND PUT

THEM ALL TOGETHER TO SEE

THE REAL FORTRESS, OR

STRONGHOLD, HERE ON THE

UPPER PART OF THE CITY OF

DAVID.

Reporter: THIS RABBI

SAYS THE DISCOVERY BRINGS

TO LIFE THE STORY OF

HANUKKAH.

SO THEY HAVE TO TELL A

FOURTH GRADER OR A

4-YEAR-OLD, OR A CYNICAL

COLLEGE KID, THE MIGHTY

GREEK EMPIRE -- I CAN NOW

SHOW IT WITH AN

UNPRECEDENTED MASSIVE,

POWERFUL BUILDING, WHICH

IS MENTIONED IN THE TEXT.

WHO DOESN'T WANT TO HAVE

THE HANUKKAH STORY COME

ALIVE.

Reporter: THE

EIGHT-DAY CELEBRATION

COMMEMORATES THE

REDEDICATION OF THE TEMPLE

AFTER THE MACCABEES

CAPTURED IT FROM ANTIACUS.

WHEN THEY TRIED TO LIGHT

THE ME MENORAH, THE MACCABEES

DISCOVERED THEY ONLY HAD

OIL FOR ONE DAY.

MIRACULOUSLY, IT LASTED

FOR EIGHT.

THE ANCIENT STONES CRY OUT

WITH THE STORY.

THERE IS A JOEFUS, AND

IT SAYS THE BRAVERY OF THE

MAZNIUS TO TAKE ON THE

SOLDIERS -- AT LEAST WE

CAN SERVE GOD.

SO WE DON'T HAVE POLITICAL

FREEDOM, BUT WE CAN SERVE

GOD.

WHAT A MESSAGE.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: HISTORY BURIED

UNDERNEATH A PARKING LOT.

GORDON?

Gordon: LITERALLY IN

JERUSALEM, YOU TURN OVER A

STONE AND YOU FIND

HISTORY.

WHAT A WONDERFUL THING,

PARTICULARLY ON THE EVE OF

HANUKKAH.

WHAT A WONDERFUL THING TO

FIND ARCHEOLOGICAL PROOF

OF THE STORY.

AND THAT IS HAPPENING

LITERALLY EVERY DAY IN

ISRAEL.

WHERE YOU'RE FINDING

ARCHEOLOGICAL PROOF OF THE

BIBLE.

TERRY?

Terry: IT'S SO

EXCITING.

UP NEXT, HE IS THE

MADMAN WHO IS CALLED THE

MOST POWERFUL OPERATIVE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST TODAY, AND

HE IS STARTING TO MAKE

FRIENDS IN SOME VERY HIGH

PLACES.

SOLAMANI IS RESPONSIBLE

FOR KUDS FORCES.

HE IS A UNIFORMED OSAMA

BIN LADEN.

Terry: WHO IS THIS

MYSTERY MAN AND HOW IS HE

FANNING THE FLAMES OF

TERRORISM.

YOU'LL FIND OUT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: A DANGEROUS

NEW ALLIANCE IS FORMING IN

THE MIDDLE EAST: RUSSIA

HAS JOINED FORCES WITH

IRAN, HEZBOLLAH, AND

BASHAR al-ASSAD IN

SYRIA.

BUT CONTROLLING SYRIA MAY

BE ONLY THE BEGINNING OF

THEIR PLANS.

ERICK STAKELBECK TAKES A

CLOSER LOOK AT THIS

ALLIANCE AND THE MAN AT

THE CENTER OF IT.

Erick: IT'S A NIGHT

MAYOR SCENARIO, A MILITARY

POWERHOUSE WITH A MASSIVE

NUCLEAR ARSENAL, OPENLY

ALIGNING ITSELF WITH

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WHO ARE

HOSTILE TO AMERICA AND

ISRAEL.

THAT'S EXACTLY THE

SITUATION TODAY IN SYRIA,

AS THE RUSSIAN MILITARY

COORDINATES WITH IRAN AND

ITS PROXY, HEZBOLLAH.

THE RUSSIAN-IRANIAN

ALLIANCE IS HELPING TO

PROP UP THE REGIME OF

SYRIAN DICTATOR BASHAR

al-ASSAD.

HE HAD BEEN ON THE ROPES,

THREATENED ON ALL SIDES BY

ISIS, al-QAEDA, AND

SYRIAN REBEL GROUPS.

AND THEN THE RUSSIAN BEAR

STEPPED IN.

RUSSIA STARTED STRIKES IN

LATE SEPTEMBER, AFTER A

STEADY MILITARY BUILDUP.

THE BUILDUP BEGAN AFTER AN

IRANIAN GENERAL NAMED

SOLAMANI, PAID A VISIT TO

MOSCOW IN JULY.

IT WAS NO COINCIDENCE.

ALTHOUGH HE LARGELY AVOIDS

THE LIMELIGHT, HE HAS BEEN

CALLED THE MOST POWERFUL

OPERATIVE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST TODAY.

IN GENERAL TERMS, HE IS

A UNIFORMED OSAMA BIN

LADEN.

HE IS ANTI-U.S.

HE IS ABLE TO TRAVEL THE

MIDDLE EAST, NORTH AFRICA,

AND BASICALLY FUNDING AND

DIRECTING IRANIAN PROXY

GROUPS LIKE HEZBOLLAH,

HAMAS, AND THE HOUTHIS.

Erick: MICHAEL

PRECHENT SERVED AS AN

INTELLIGENCE ADVISOR TO

GENERAL DAVID PATREAS IN

IRAQ.

TALK ABOUT THE KIND OF

ATTACKS THAT SOLAMANI AND

IRANIANS CARRIED OUT?

IT WAS A MISSION THAT

THE MALITIAS TRAINED THEM

HOW TO USE IT, AND

DIRECTED THEIR ATTACKS

AGAINST U.S. FORCES.

Erick: U.S. OFFICIALS

BELIEVE THOSE

IRANIAN-SUPPLIED WEAPONS

LED TO THE DEATHS OF AT

LEAST 500 AMERICAN

SOLDIERS.

AND SOLAMANI PLAYED A

CENTRAL ROLE.

SOLAMANI IS RESPONSIBLE

FOR QUDS FORCE

EXTERMINATIONS.

HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR

KEEPING ASSAD IN POWER FOR

FOUR YEARS.

HE HAS THE HAND IN THE

DEATH OF 200,000 SYRIANS.

Erick: ISRAEL,

HOWEVER, IS SOLAMANI'S

ULTIMATE TARGET.

THE QUDS FORCE MEANS

JERUSALEM, AND THEY'RE

HELL-BENT ON TAKING

JERUSALEM BACK.

IN JANUARY 2015, AN

ISRAELI HELICOPTER STRIKE

KILLED A GROUP OF TOP

HEZBOLLAH OPERATIVES NEAR

THE GOLAN BORDER, ALONG

WITH AN IRANIAN BRIGADIER

GENERAL.

THAT SETBACK DIDN'T DETER

IRAN'S LONG-TERM PLANS.

SOLAMANI PERSONALLY

VISITED THE GOLAN TO RALLY

TROOPS THERE.

SOLAMANI HAS BECOME

LOTS MORE PUBLIC IN HIS

PROFILE.

LOTS OF PICTURES OF HIM

STANDING ALONGSIDE IRAQI

SHI'A MILITANTS IN IRAQ.

IN SYRIA, HE HAS TAKEN A

VERY PUBLIC ROLE.

Reporter: LIKEWISE,

IRAN IS STEPPING UP ITS

ROLE IN SYRIA'S CIVIL WAR.

SOME 2,000 IRANIAN AND

IRANIAN-BACKED FIGHTERS

ARE IN SYRIA.

THEY'RE JOINED BY

THOUSANDS OF HEZBOLLAH

FIGHTERS, AND SUPPORTED BY

A DAILY BARAGE OF RUSSIAN

AIRSTRIKES AGAINST

ANTI-ASSAD TARGETS.

IN ADDITION, RUSSIA, IRAN,

THE ASSAD REGIME AND IRAQ

ARE REPORTEDLY SHARING

INTELLIGENCE.

AN EMERGENCY VISIT BY

SOLAMANI TO MOSCOW IN JULY

REPORTEDLY SEALED THE DEAL

FOR RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN

SYRIA.

IT WAS A VISIT MADE IN

DIRECT VIOLATIONS OF U.N.

SANCTIONS AGAINST THE QUDS

FORCE LEADER.

WHEN WE SAY THAT

SANCTIONS ARE STILL ON

SOLAMANI, THEY'RE NOT

BECAUSE THE SUPREME LEADER

WILL GIVE HIM AS MUCH

MONEY AS HE NEEDS TO

CONTINUE IRAN'S EXPORT OF

TERRORISM.

HE ANSWERS DIRECTLY TO THE

SUPREME LEADER.

SOLAMANI ANSWERS DIRECTLY

TO AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI.

AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT.

Erick: AS FOR RUSSIA,

ITS PRESENCE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST AND ITS GROWING

ALLIANCE WITH IRAN RAISES

SERIOUS QUESTIONS FOR

ISRAEL.

SUCH AS: HOW WILL RUSSIA

REACT TO A POTENTIAL WAR

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND

HEZBOLLAH, OR AN ISRAELI

STRIKE AGAINST IRAN'S

NUCLEAR FACILITIES.

THE ANSWER REMAIN UNCLEAR.

ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

Gordon: THERE IS AN

INDEPTH LOOK AT THE GROUP

THAT WE JUST SIGNED A

TREATY WITH.

WE JUST LIFTED THOSE

SANCTIONS.

IT WAS SUPPORTED BY THE

ADMINISTRATION.

IT WAS SUPPORTED BY THE

U.S. SENATE.

AND YOU LOOK AT THESE

KINDS OF REPORTS AND SAY,

HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY LIFT

SANCTIONS AND PUT IRAN ON

A TRACK WHERE EIGHT YEARS,

10 YEARS -- WHATEVER THE

TIMEFRAME -- THEY'LL BE

ABLE TO DEVELOP NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

AND IN THE MEANTIME,

THEY'RE NOW ABLE TO

CONTINUE TO DEVELOP

BALLISTIC MISSILE

TECHNOLOGY.

YOU LIKE AT THIS GROUP,

AND THEY ACTIVELY PUT

WEAPONS IN IRAQ TO KILL

U.S. TROOPS.

WHAT DO WE THINK IS

COMING?

DO WE REALLY THINK THEIR

ONLY TARGET HERE IS

ISRAEL?

OR THEIR ONLY TARGET IN

ISIS?

WE'RE CLEARLY ONE OF THEIR

TARGETS.

THEY CALL US THE GREAT

SATAN.

SO TO LIFT THESE

SANCTIONS, I SHAKE MY

HEAD.

I GO, WHAT IN THE WORLD

WERE WE THINKING?

NOW, WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

SAY ABOUT THIS?

IN MY LIFETIME, I NEVER

THOUGHT THAT RUSSIA WOULD

FORM AN ALLIANCE WITH

IRAN.

I JUST DIDN'T THINK IT

WOULD EVER BE POSSIBLE.

THE LONG-STANDING POLICY

OF THE UNITED STATES, THAT

RUSSIA SHOULD HAVE NO

MILITARY BASE AND THE

MIDDLE EAST.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT

THEY'VE TRIED TO DO FIRST

WITH EGYPT IN THE 1950s,

1960s, 1970s, AND THEN

IN SYRIA, AND NOW THERE IS

A RUSSIAN MILITARY BASE,

AN AIR FIELD, IN SYRIA.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

WELL, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

BIBLE, IT TALKS ABOUT THE

RISE OF THE KINGS OF THE

EAST, AND IT TALKS ABOUT

GOG AND MEGGOG.

ARE WE LOOKING AT THAT

KIND OF SCENARIO?

AND WHAT IS THIS ALLIANCE

DESIGNED TO DO?

WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS THEY

WANT TO MARCH AGAINST

JERUSALEM.

THAT'S THEIR TARGET.

YOU'RE HEARING IT HERE.

I DOUBT YOU'LL EVER SEE

THIS REPORT ON ANY OTHER

MEDIA OUTLET, BUT THOSE

ARE THE FACTS.

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE THAT

WE JUST SIGNED A TREATY

WITH, LIFTING SANCTIONS.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, A NEW PROGRAM THAT IS

HELPING SURVIVORS OF

DOMESTIC ABUSE.

AND THEN LATER, HOW TO

MAKE MONEY FROM THE

COMFORTS OF YOUR OWN HOME.

THIS ISN'T SOME INTERNET

AD.

IT'S FOR REAL.

AND WE'LL SHOW YOU SOME

WAYS YOU CAN DO IT.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

Terry: ACROSS THE

MIDDLE EAST, WOMEN ARE

PRACTICALLY TREATED AS

SECOND-CLASS CITIZENS.

A COUNTLESS NUMBER OF THEM

ARE TRAPPED IN ABUSIVE

RELATIONSHIPS.

SOME OF THEM DON'T HAVE

THE ABILITY TO MAKE IT ON

THEIR OWN.

WHICH IS WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" SET UP A NEW

TRAINING PROGRAM JUST FOR

THEM.

Reporter: AT A

WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT CENTER

IN THE WEST BANK, I MET

FABIA.

SHE AND THE OTHER LADIES

HAVE LEARNED TO MAKE

STUFFED ANIMALS AND

CHILDREN'S CLOTHES THEY

SELL AT LOCAL STORES.

FABIA IS ONE OF MANY WOMEN

WHO HAVE FOUND HOPE HERE

AFTER HARSH AND PAINFUL

DIVORCES.

I CANNOT DESCRIBE THE

TERRIBLE THINGS MY HUSBAND

DID TO ME.

HE CONTROLLED ME A LOT.

I DIDN'T FEEL SAFE IN MY

OWN HOUSE.

Reporter: IT'S

CULTURALLY UNACCEPTABLE

FOR A MUSLIM WOMAN TO

DIVORCE HER HUSBAND, SO

FATIA STRUGGLED IN THE

RELATIONSHIP FOR 10 YEARS,

UNTIL SHE COULDN'T TAKE IT

ANYMORE.

THE DIVORCE WAS VERY

EMOTIONAL.

I EVEN HAD TO GIVE UP MY

THREE CHILDREN.

Reporter: FABIA'S

FAMILY DISOWNED HER AFTER

THE DIVORCE, AND SHE

COULDN'T FIND A JOB

BECAUSE NO ONE WOULD HIRE

HER.

EVERYONE TURNED AGAINST

ME.

PEOPLE SAW ME DIFFERENTLY

AND SAID BAD THINGS ABOUT

ME.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

Reporter: THEN FABIA

FOUND THE WOMEN'S CENTER,

WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY

"OPERATION BLESSING."

I LOVED SEEING SOME OF THE

STUFFED ANIMALS AND

CLOTHES THEY MAKE.

EVERYTHING THEY MAKE HAS

BEEN A BIG HIT AT STORES

ALL OVER THE WEST BANK.

AND THAT'S HELPED THESE

LADIES REBUILD THEIR

CONFIDENCE.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

REALLY ENCOURAGED ME IN

THE DIRECTION I WAS GOING

IN MY LIFE.

THEY GAVE ME A LOT OF

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND

HELPED ME LEARN HOW TO BE

A DIVORCED WOMAN IN THIS

CULTURE.

Reporter: THANKS TO

"OPERATION BLESSING,"

FABIA CAN NOW MAKE A

LIVING FOR HERSELF, AND

SHE IS GOING TO COLLEGE TO

STUDY GRAPHIC DESIGN.

SHE CAN EVEN AFFORD

DINNERS FOR HER SONS, SO

SHE GETS TO SEE THEM MORE

OFTEN THAN EVER BEFORE.

I CAN'T THANK

"OPERATION BLESSING"

ENOUGH FOR THIS.

IT STRENGTHENS ME TO KNOW

THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

CARE ABOUT WOMEN LIKE ME.

YOU HELPED ME GET MY FEET

BACK ON THE GROUND.

Terry: I DON'T THINK

THERE IS ANYTHING MORE

DIFFICULT TO WAVE THROUGH

THAN DISPAIR AND A LACK OF

HOPE.

AND THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD, FOR

VARIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, IN

SITUATIONS LIKE THIS.

YOU COME RIGHT INTO THE

MIDDLE OF IT WITH AN

OPPORTUNITY FOR A NEW

BEGINNING, FOR A FRESH

HOPE, FOR A FUTURE.

THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE LONG

FOR IN THEIR HEARTS, AND

YOU MAKE THAT POSSIBLE.

AND YOU DO IT ALL IN THE

LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.

AND PEOPLE KNOW THAT.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

"700 CLUB" MEMBERS.

YOU'RE DOING THAT AROUND

THE WORLD IN THE LIVES OF

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

AND TO THOSE OF YOU WHO

AREN'T "700 CLUB" MEMBERS,

LET TODAY BE THE DAY THAT

YOU SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE, TOO.

JOIN WITH THE REST OF US.

THAT'S HOW IT WORKS.

ALONE, NONE OF US CAN

ACCOMPLISH THIS.

BUT TOGETHER WE CAN HAVE A

MIGHTY IMPACT.

YOU DO THAT BY GOING TO

YOUR PHONE RIGHT NOW AND

CALLING AND SAYING, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

THERE IS THE TOLL-FREE

NUMBER: 1-800-759-0700.

IT IS 65 CENTS A DAY, $20

A MONTH FOR A GENERAL

MEMBERSHIP.

AND WE WELCOME YOU TO AN

OUTREACH OF MINISTRIES

THAT TOUCHES THE WHOLE

WORLD.

OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK

YOU TO YOU FOR CARING BOW

OTHERS IS TO SEND YOU

PAT'S LATEST, "THE

TRANSFORMING WORD," VERSES

EXPERIENCE PEACE.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THAT

IN YOUR HEART AND LIFE,

OPTIONS TO PEOPLE AROUND

THE WORLD.

SO YOU CALL NOW.

TRANSFORMING WORD" OUT TO

> UP NEXT, THE HOT-SHOT

BUSINESSMAN WHO FOUND

HIMSELF LIVING UNDER A

BRIDGE.

I WAS A MESS.

I WAS MUDDY.

I WAS COLD.

I WAS TIRED.

I WAS HUNGRY.

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

MY LIFE, PEOPLE WERE

LOOKING AT ME LIKE I WAS

SCUM.

Terry: HEAR HOW HE

GOT SOMETHING THAT MONEY

COULDN'T BUY, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

WHICH IS BETTER FOR

AMERICA, THE BIBLE OR THE

QURAN?

THAT'S WHAT ONE LIFEWAY

RESEARCH POLL ASKED, AND

28% OF AMERICANS SAID

FOLLOWING THE QURAN WOULD

BE GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY,

WHILE 24% CONSIDERED IT TO

BE A DANGEROUS BOOK.

AND 80% BELIEVE FOLLOWING

THE BIBLE IS GOOD FOR

AMERICAN SOCIETY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

CHANGING THE LIVES OF

STUDENTS IN HAITI THROUGH

THE GAME OF CHESS.

STUDENTS AT A SCHOOL BUILT

BY "OPERATION BLESSING"

ARE LEARNING HOW TO THINK

CRITICALLY BY PLAYING

CHESS.

THE CHESS PROGRAM WAS

INITIALLY INTRODUCED ON A

TRIAL BASIS, BUT STUDENTS

LOVED IT SO MUCH IT IS NOW

PART OF THE REGULAR CLASS

SCHEDULE.

THE SCHOOL DIRECTOR SAYS

CHESS HAS BECOME SO MUCH

MORE THAN JUST A GAME FOR

THEIR STUDENTS AND

FAMILIES.

THEY'RE LEARNING TO

CONNECT WITH THEIR PEERS

AND ARE NOW MORE MOTIVATED

THAN EVER.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY GOING TO THEIR WEBSITE

AT ob.org.

GORDON AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: DAVID COON

WAS ON THE EDGE OF A

NERVOUS BREAK DOWN.

BREAKDOWN.

HIS CAREER COLLAPSED, HIS

ALCOHOLISM HAD GOTTEN OUT

OF CONTROL, AND H HIS DOUBLE

LIFE HAD BEEN EXPOSED.

DAVID WANTED OUT OF THE

MESS HE CREATED, AND A

STRANGER HELPED SET HIM

FREE.

I HAD ONLY THE CLOTHES

ON MY BACK AND $2 IN MY

WALLET.

Reporter: DAVID COON

SPENT HIS LIFE CHASING

SUCCESS AND IT COST HIM

EVERYTHING.

I HAD BURNED EVERY

BRIDGE WITH MY KIDS, MY

EX-WIFE, I HAD NO ONE TO

TURN TO.

Reporter: DAVID HAD

CLIMBED QUICKLY AT HIS

HIGH-TECH CONSTRUCTION

JOB.

HE WORKED LONG AND HARD,

DRIVEN BY THE NEED TO BE

THE BEST.

THE PRESSURE TO EXCEL,

THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET IT

RIGHT LIKE NO ONE ELSE

CAN.

I WANTED MORE THAN

ANYTHING TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

Reporter: THE

ACHIEVEMENTS NOT ONLY

FILLED DAVID'S WALLET,

THEY FED HIS EGO.

I WAS ALWAYS ABLE TO

OUTTHINK, OUTSMART, OUTDO.

I WOULD CONSIDER MYSELF TO

BE THE MOST INTELLIGENT

PERSON IN THE ROOM AT ANY

GIVEN TIME.

Reporter: HE HAD A

PROMINENT SPOT IN

MANAGEMENT, AND HE ALSO

MARRIED AND HAD A SON.

BUT THERE WERE PROBLEMS.

WHAT STARTED WITH THE

OCCASIONAL DRINK AFTER

WORK BECAME AN

ALL-CONSUMING ADDICTION.

ALCOHOL ENDED UP

CONTROLLING EVERY ASPECT

OF MY LIFE, FROM WHEN CAN

I GET MY NEXT DRINK TO HOW

MUCH CAN I DRINK UNTIL I

BLACKED OUT.

I ORGANIZED MY BUDGET ON

WHAT THE NEXT WEEK LOOKED

LIKE DEPENDING ON WHAT I

COULD DRINK.

Reporter: HE TOOK ON

OUT OF STATE ASSIGNMENTS,

BUT LIFE ON THE ROAD ONLY

GAVE HIM MORE ABILITY TO

FEED HIS ADDICTION.

I THOUGHT TRAVELLING

AND BEING ON THE ROAD AND

FOCUSING ON WORK AND

FOCUSING ON MONEY WOULD

GIVE ME MY ULTIMATE PRIZE.

BUT IT LED TO A LOT OF

SOLITUDE BECAUSE I HAD TO

DO A LOT OF MY DRINKING BY

MYSELF BECAUSE I DRANK TO

EXCESS, UNTIL I BLACKED

OUT.

Reporter: WHILE ON

THE ROAD, DAVID BEGAN

SEEING ANOTHER WOMAN.

SOON AFTER HIS WIFE

DISCOVERED HIS AFFAIR AND

DIVORCED HIM.

I KNEW I DESTROYED A

PERFECTLY GOOD MARRIAGE.

I KNEW I WASN'T THERE FOR

MY SON.

Reporter: HIS WORK

STARTED TO DECLINE, AND HE

WAS PUT ON NOTICE.

BUT DAVID WAS CONVINCED HE

COULD FIGURE THINGS OUT ON

HIS OWN.

I COULD THINK MY WAY

OUT OF THE PROBLEM, JUST

KEEP ON PUSHING ALONG.

Reporter: THEN AFTER

A DAY OF DRINKING, HE

BLACKED OUT BEHIND THE

WHEEL OF HIS CAR.

HE WOKE UP IN JAIL FACING

SEVERAL FELONY CHARGES,

AND ASSAULTING SEVERAL OF

THE OFFICERS.

FINALLY DAVID REALIZED HE

NEEDED HELP.

I WAS BECOMING SOMEONE

I NEVER INTENDED TO BE, A

BAD FATHER, A BAD HUSBAND,

AN ALCOHOLIC.

Reporter: BECAUSE

DAVID HAD NO PRIORS, THE

JUDGE RELEASED HIM.

SOON AFTER, HIS COMPANY

LET HIM GO.

WITH NO PLACE TO CALL HOME

AND NO MONEY TO HIS NAME,

HE WALKED THE STREETS OF

NEW YORK, EVENTUALLY

TAKING SHELTER UNDER A

TRAIN BRIDGE.

I WAS A MESS.

I WAS MUDDY.

I WAS COLD, I WAS TIRED.

I WAS HUNGRY.

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

MY LIFE, PEOPLE WERE

LOOKING AT ME LIKE I WAS

SCUM.

Reporter: DAVID WAS

NEVER MORE ALONE, OR SO HE

THOUGHT.

THIS KID COMES UP, AND

HE COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE

THAN 17 OR 18 YEARS OLD,

AND ASKED ME WHY I WAS

SLEEPING ON A BENCH IN A

RAINSTORM.

WHEN THE MISSION WAS RIGHT

AROUND THE CORNER.

AND HE LED ME TO THE DOOR

OF CITY MISSION AT ABOUT

10 MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT.

HE BROUGHT ME IN AND SAID,

THIS GUY NEEDS YOUR HELP.

AND HE DISAPPEARED, AND

I'VE NEVER SEEN HIM SINCE.

Reporter: IT WAS THEN

DAVID REALIZED THE MISSION

WAS MORE THAN A SHELTER;

IT WAS A SANCTUARY.

I FELT LIKE I WAS SAFE.

I KNEW I WAS SAFE.

BUT NOT ONLY THAT, MY

DESIRE FOR ALCOHOL WAS

LIFTED IMMEDIATELY.

THAT WAS BEFORE I SAID

WORD ONE TO ANYBODY.

BEFORE THEY SE SAID WORD ONE

TO ME.

I KNOW IN MY HEART OF

HEARTS, THAT THAT WAS THE

HAND OF GOD THAT LED ME

THERE BECAUSE I NEEDED

THAT.

Reporter: DAVID STOOD

HUMBLED BY GOD'S ACT OF

LOVE.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS

LIFE, HE REALIZED JUST HOW

MUCH HE NEEDED GOD.

SOON AFTER HE COMMITTED

HIS LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST.

I WRECKED PEOPLE'S

LIVES.

I STOLE THEIR JOY.

BUT GOD HAD A PLAN FOR ME.

HE SHOWED ME TRUE

HUMILITY, TRUE

SELFLESSNESS, RATHER THAN

SELFISHNESS.

Reporter: SOON AFTER,

DAVID MOVED TO NEW MEXICO,

AND JOINED THE ALBUQUERQUE

COMMITTEE AS THE HEAD OF

CONSTRUCTION.

HE HAS ALSO RECONCILED

WITH HIS FAMILY AND

RECENTLY REMARRIED.

HE THANKS GOD EVERY DAY

FOR THE CHANCE TO LIVE

WITH TRUE HUMILITY.

I'M MOST THANKFUL EVERY

DAY FOR HIM GIVING ME MY

LIFE, AND ALLOWING ME, BY

HIS GRACE AND MERCY, TO

REDEEM THAT LIFE, AND

GIVING ME A CHANCE TO BE A

GOOD SON, A GOOD HUSBAND,

AND A GOOD FATHER.

I PUT MY FAITH IN HIM, NOT

IN MYSELF.

Gordon: AND YOU CAN

DO THAT, TOO.

YOU CAN PUT YOUR FAITH IN

HIM.

WHEN YOU COME TO THE END

OF YOURSELF -- AND HERE IS

DAVID, HE THINKS HE IS THE

SMARTEST GUY AND THE ROOM.

HE THINKS HE CAN FIGURE

HIS WAY OUT.

HE HAS GOT SOME ANGLE, AND

HE CAN PUT IT OVER ON

SOMEBODY.

HE CAN DO IT.

HE CAN GET OUT OF THIS

MESS.

WHATEVER THE PROBLEM IS,

HE CAN GET OUT OF IT.

BUT BEFORE LONG HE

COULDN'T GET OUT OF IT.

HE COULDN'T STOP.

HE WAS OUT OF CONTROL.

AND TO A SERIES OF EVENTS,

HE LOST HIS MARRIAGE.

HE LOST HIS JOB.

HE LOST HIS HOME.

AND HERE HE IS, SLEEPING

ON A PARK BENCH IN THE

RAIN AND SOMEONE COMES UP

TO HIM AND SAYS, WHY ARE

YOU DOING THAT?

AND THERE IS A MISSION

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.

SO THE QUESTION FOR YOU

TODAY: ARE YOU LIKE DAVID?

DO YOU THINK YOU CAN FIND

A WAY OUT OF ADDICTION?

DO YOU THINK YOU CAN

FIGURE IT OUT?

WHY ARE YOU SITTING THERE,

KNOWING THAT YOU'RE GOING

TO USE AGAIN, WHEN THERE

IS A MISSION RIGHT AROUND

THE CORNER?

AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

GO THERE AND SAY, I NEED

HELP.

I NEED YOU.

I DON'T NEED TO DO THIS

ANYMORE.

I NEED TO CHANGE.

AND AS SOON AS YOU DO

THAT, JUST LIKE DAVID, AS

SOON AS YOU WALK IN THAT

DOOR, THEN THESE THINGS

LIFT OFF OF YOU BECAUSE

YOU'VE COME TO THE SOURCE.

YOU'VE COME TO THE SOURCE

OF LIFE, OF HEALTH, OF

RIGHTEOUSNESS, OF PEACE,

OF JOY.

YOU'VE COME TO THE SOURCE

OF ALL OF THAT.

MAYBE YOU'RE THINKING,

THAT CAN NEVER BE ME.

MAYBE WHEN YOU HEAR WORDS

LIKE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND

PEACE, YOU LAUGH AND SAY,

THAT CAN NEVER HAPPEN TO

ME.

WELL, YES, IT CAN.

BECAUSE IT IS NOT YOUR

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

IT'S NOT YOUR PEACE.

IT IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS,

IT IS THE PEACE THAT YOU

GET FROM HIM, WHERE HE

COMES TO YOU RIGHT WHERE

YOU ARE.

AND CHANGES YOU.

CHANGES YOU FROM YOUR

INNERMOST BEING, WHERE YOU

NO LONGER WANT THE THINGS

YOU USED TO WANT.

YOU WANT HIM.

YOU WANT THAT.

YOU WANT THAT

RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND

JOY.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW GOOD

IT IS.

NOW, IF THIS IS FOR YOU,

IF THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT,

DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL.

LET TODAY BE THE DAY WHERE

YOU SAY, NO, I DON'T WANT

TO TAKE THOSE PILLS

ANYMORE.

I DON'T WANT TO DRINK

ANYMORE.

I WANT TO HAVE THAT

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

I WANT TO HAVE PEACE.

I WANT TO HAVE JOY.

THE REAL KIND.

NOT THE TEMPORARY KIND.

THE REAL THING.

IF YOU WANT THAT, BOW YOUR

HEAD WITH ME.

LET'S PRAY A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER AND LET JESUS DO

FOR YOU WHAT HE DID FOR

DAVID.

HE'LL DO IT IF YOU JUST

LET HIM.

YOU'LL FIND HE IS WANTING

YOU AND WANTING TO DO THIS

FOR YEARS FOR YOU.

ALL HAVE YOU TO DO IS SAY

YES.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME.

SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND,

LORD, I JUST SAY I

SURRENDER ALL.

I'M TIRED OF TRYING TO

FIGURE IT OUT.

I'M TIRED OF TRYING TO DO

IT ON MY OWN.

I'M TIRED OF WHAT I'VE

MADE OF MY LIFE.

SO, JESUS, I OPEN THE DOOR

OF MY HEART AND I ASK THAT

YOU COME IN.

I ASK THAT YOU MAKE ME

NEW, THAT YOU FORGIVE ME,

THAT YOU CLEANSE ME, THAT

YOU SET ME ON A PATH

THAT'S TOWARDS YOU, LORD

GOD.

DRAW ME TO YOU.

AND, JESUS, IF YOU'LL DO

THIS FOR ME, I WANT TO

FOLLOW YOU ALL THE DAYS OF

MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT TODAY IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A

BAPTISM IN YOUR LOVE.

I ASK THAT YOU FILL THEM

TO OVERFLOWING.

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEIR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD AND

HAS BEEN ANSWERED TODAY.

AND I ASK THAT YOU TAKE

AWAY THE COMPULSION, YOU

TAKE AWAY THE TASTE, YOU

TAKE AWAY ANYTHING

ASSOCIATED WITH ANY

BONDAGE OVER THEM NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

SET THEM FREE.

FOR WE ASK IT IN YOUR

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

THERE IS ONE MORE THING I

WANT YOU TO DO.

I WANT YOU TO GO TO THE

PHONE AND MAKE A CALL.

THE NUMBER IS ON THE

SCREEN: 1-800-759-0700.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH

THAT GUY ON TV, AND I

ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO

MY HEART.

WHEN YOU CALL, I'VE GOT A

FREE PACKET FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN THERE IS A C.D.

TEACHING OF WHAT DO YOU

DO?

HOW DO YOU LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

WHAT IS CHRISTIANITY ALL

ABOUT?

IT'S ALL FREE.

THE PACKET IS FREE.

CALL US NOW.

1-800-759-0700.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: COMING UP, ARE

YOU SAVING ALL YOU CAN AND

STILL NOT MAKING ENDS

MEET?

THE MONEY-MAKING MOM IS

HERE TO HELP, AND SHE'S

GOING TO JOIN US LATER.

Terry: RACHEL PAYNE

WAS IN A TOUGH SITUATION.

SHE WAS PREGNANT AND KNEW

IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO

RAISE A FAMILY ON HER

HUSBAND'S PART-TIME

FAMILY.

SO CRYSTAL STUDIED AS HARD

AS SHE COULD.

AND THE MONEY-SAVING MOM

WAS BORN.

Wendy: FOR MORE THAN

A DECADE, SHE HAS BEEN

TEACHING OTHERS TO LIVE ON

A BUDGET, BUT SHE SAYS

IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT SAVING

MONEY.

IN HER NEW BOOK,

"MONEY-MAKING MOM,"

CRYSTAL SHARES HOW SHE

INCREASED HER FAMILY

INCOME, AND OFFERS IDEAS

FOR EVERY WOMAN WHO WANTS

TO IMPROVE HER BOTTOM

LINE.

Terry: CRYSTAL PAYNE

IS HERE WITH US NOW, AND

WE WELCOME HER BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME ON.

Terry: LETS GO BACK

TO WHEN YOU WERE FIRST

MARRIED, CRYSTAL.

YOUR HUSBAND WAS GOING TO

LAW SCHOOL, WORKING PART

TIME.

WHAT DID YOU DO?

YES.

SO WE WERE TRYING TO LIVE

ON THIS BEANS AND RICE

BUDGET AND TRYING TO STAY

OUT OF DEBT.

AND IT WAS HARD, AND WE

JUST REALLY REALIZED WE

HAD TO MAXIMIZE THE

MILEAGE OF OUR MONEY.

THAT'S WHERE THIS WHOLE

CLIPPING COUPONS AND

TEACHING OTHER MONEY HOW

TO CUT THEIR GROCERY BILL

CAME FROM ON MY BLOG.

Terry: YOU KIND OF

CAME BY THIS NATURALLY

BECAUSE YOU HAD BEEN

RAISED BY PARENTS WHO HAD

SHOWN YOU HOW TO STRUGGLE

TO THE GOOD.

YES.

I'M SO GRATEFUL.

I WAS HOME-SCHOOLED, AND

SO PART OF MY HEM E HOME EC, FOR

TWO YEARS, IN OUR FAMILY

OF NINE, TO DO ALL OF THE

COUPONING AND TO DO ALL OF

THE GROCERY SHOPPING.

TALK ABOUT HANDS-ON

EXPERIENCE.

Terry: AND YOU SAW IT

IN ACTION?

YES.

AND I TOLD MY HUSBAND, WE

CAN DEEP OU KEEP OUR GROCERY BILL

LOW.

I KNOW THIS.

I'VE DONE THIS.

Terry: CAN YOU DEFINE

YOUR DEFINITION OF

FINANCIAL FREEDOM.

SO MANY PEOPLE THINK

FINANCIAL FREEDOM IS HAVE

A GREAT HOUSE, HAVE A NICE

CAR, AND HAVE ALL OF THESE

THINGS.

AND IT IS NOT THAT THAT IS

WRONG NECESSARILY, BUT FOR

ME FINANCIAL FREEDOM IS

FROM THE PEACE THAT COMES

FROM KNOWING THAT OUR

MONEY IS IN ORDER AND WE

HAVE ROOM IN OUR BUDGET

THAT WE CAN GIVE TO OTHER

PEOPLE.

Terry: AND YOU TALK

ABOUT THAT A LOT IN YOUR

BOOK, LIVING SIMPLY SO

THAT OTHERS CAN SIMPLY

LIVE.

THAT REALLY HAS BECOME A

MANDATE FOR YOU ARE YOUR

HUSBAND.

THAT IS REALLY OUR

HEARTBEAT.

AND THAT'S WHY WE DO

EVERYTHING WE DO.

BECAUSE BY SAVING MONEY WE

CAN GIVE GENEROUSLY AND

MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Terry: SO WHERE DO

MOST OF US GO WRONG?

I THINK IT IS THE

PRIORITIES IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

NOT HAVING GOOD

PRIORITIES, AND NOT HAVING

A PLAN.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN.

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY, I WANT

TO SAVE MONEY.

YOU HAVE TO ACTUALLY SET

GOALS, AND BREAK THOSE

DOWN INTO BITE-SIZED

PIECES AND WALK THAT OUT.

Terry: YOUR BLOG,

FIRST OF ALL -- I DON'T

THINK YOU EXPECTED THAT TO

HAPPEN WHEN YOU STARTED

YOUR BLOG.

NO.

I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO

BE THIS LITTLE SIDE THING

THAT I WAS GOING TO DO.

Terry: BUT IT HAS

TURNED INTO A BIG

BUSINESS -- I'M SAYING

BIG -- IT IS BIG BECAUSE

YOU'RE RUNNING IT AS A

FAMILY.

SO THAT TAKES A LOT OF

TIME AND EFFORT.

BUT YOU HAVE DECIDED TO

REMOVE YOUR E-MAIL FROM

YOUR PHONE.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT AS A

BUSINESS OWNER?

YES.

I HAVE A TEAM OF ABOUT 17

PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR ME ALL

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AND IT IS A VERY LARGE --

ALMOST LIKE A MOMMY

ENTERPRISE, BUT REMOVING

E-MAIL FROM MY PHONE, I

REALIZED EVERY MORNING I

WOULD CHECK E-MAIL AND

EVERY NIGHT BEFORE I WENT

TO BED I WOULD CHECK

E-MAIL.

I THOUGHT, I CAN'T LIVE

LIKE THIS ANYMORE, SO I

JUST TOOK IT OFF AND I'VE

SURVIVED.

Terry: WE GET TO MAKE

CHOICES.

WE'RE GROWNUPS.

I'M SURE THERE ARE WOMEN

WHO ARE LISTENING TO US

RIGHT NOW AND THEY SAY,

THAT'S WHAT CRYSTAL DID,

BUT HOW DO I FIND THE

THING THAT IS RIGHT FOR

ME?

I THINK IT IS REALLY

KNOWING WHAT ARE YOU

PASSIONATE ABOUT.

WHAT MAKES YOU COME ALIVE?

ASK YOUR FRIENDS AND

FAMILY AND TAP INTO WHAT

IS A NEED AND HOW CAN I

FILL IT?

Terry: ARE WE

SOMETIMES UNAWARE OF WHAT

OUR GIFTS AND ABILITIES

AND TALENTS MILITANT BE?

ALL THE TIME.

10 YEARS AGO, I THOUGHT, I

DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO

OFFER TO THE WORLD.

Terry: BUT WHEN YOU

WERE A KID, YOU LOVED TO

WRITE.

I DID.

AND I LOVED COMPUTERS.

AND HONESTLY, WRITING THIS

BOOK, I WAS, LIKE, OH, MY

GOODNESS, I LOVED

COMPUTERS AND I LOVED

WRITING.

LOOK AT WHAT I'M DOING

NOW.

Terry: I THINK ONE OF

THE BIG CHALLENGES FOR

ANYBODY TODAY, WHETHER

THEY'RE DOING SOMETHING

PART-TIME OR FULL-TIME IS

TO FIND BALANCE IN THEIR

LIVES.

YOU MENTIONED TAKING THE

E-MAIL OFF YOUR PHONE, AND

THAT CERTAINLY HELPED YOU

IN THAT AREA.

BUT YOU HAVE BEEN

MASTERFULLY AWARE OF NOT

LETTING THIS OVERRIDE YOUR

COMMITMENT TO YOUR FAMILY

OR EVEN TO YOURSELF AND TO

GOD.

YEAH.

AND I THINK IT IS HAVING

THOSE PRIORITIES AND

SETTING BOUNDARIES.

WE HAVE TO BE IN CONTROL

OF OUR TIME.

SO SET THOSE BOUNDARIES

FOR OUR TIME AND WALK THAT

OUT.

Terry: TELL ME ABOUT

HOW ALL OF THIS HAS GROWN.

NOW YOUR HUSBAND, WHO WAS

RUNNING HIS OWN LAW FIRM,

LEFT HIS BUSINESS TO JOIN

YOU IN THIS ENDEAVOR.

HOW DID GOD GROW THIS AND

WHERE DO YOU SEE IT GOING.

HE CAN DO EXCEEDINGLY,

ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ANYTHING

WE CAN ASK FOR.

I OFFERED UP MY AMBITIONS,

AND GOD TOOK THEM

AMAZINGLY.

MY BLOG IS

moneysavingmom.com.

IT IS A ONE STOP SHOP FOR

MOMS WHO WANT TO SAVE

MONEY AND DON'T KNOW WHERE

TO START.

Terry: YOU TALK ABOUT

MARKETING YOUR PROGRAM.

HOW DID YOU KNOW HOW TO DO

THAT?

YOU STARTED SHARING YOUR

HEART ON THIS, AND YOU HAD

TO BECOME A LITTLE BIT OF

A JACK OF ALL TRADES AS

YOU'VE WATCHED THIS GROW.

I THINK IT IS

EXPERIMENTING AND TRYING

AND NOT GIVING UP.

BECAUSE NOT EVERYTHING IS

GOING TO WORK.

BUT YOU KEEP TRYING.

AND WITH THE INTERNET,

THERE IS SO MUCH

POSSIBILITY.

Terry: YOUNG MOMS

TODAY -- I KNOW SO MANY

WHO WOULD LOVE TO STAY

HOME WITH THEIR CHILDREN,

BUT THEY CAN'T LOSE THE

INCOME THEY'RE BRINGING TO

THEIR FAMILY.

WHERE DO YOU SUGGEST THEY

START AS THEY EXPLORE

THEIR OPTIONS?

I THINK IT IS LOOKING

AT YOUR SCHEDULE AND

SAYING, DO I HAVE AN HOUR

OR TWO EVERY WEEK THAT I

CAN BLOCK OFF ON MY

CALENDAR, MAKE AN

APPOINTMENT, AND COMMIT TO

USING THAT HOUR TO REALLY

DIG INTO WHAT AM I GOOD

AT, AND HOW CAN I SET

GOALS AND HOW CAN I MAKE A

LITTLE BIT OF BITE-SIZED

PROGRESS.

Terry: AND "REALLY

DIG INTO" IS A KEY FACTOR

THERE.

YOU PERSEVERED FOR A LONG

TIME BEFORE YOU SAW

ANYTHING HAPPEN.

YES.

IT WAS ABOUT TWO AND A

HALF YEARS OF REALLY

POURING MYSELF OUT BEFORE

THOSE LITTLE TINY TRICKLES

OF PROGRESS TURNED INTO

LITTLE STREAMS THAT TURNED

INTO A RIVER, THAT NOW HAS

TURNED INTO THIS RUSHING

TORRENT.

Terry: DESPISE NOT

THE DAY OF SMALL

BEGINNINGS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

DON'T GIVE UP.

Terry: CRYSTAL PAYNE

HAS MORE TIPS IN HER BOOK

"MONEY-MAKING MOM."

I HIGHLY SUGGEST IT TO ALL

OF YOU.

YOU CAN FOLLOW CRYSTAL ON

HER BLOG, AND SEE WHAT GOD

HAS DONE WITH HER

OFFERING.

YOU CAN GET A LINK ON

cbn.com.

AND WE WANT TO SEND YOU

OFF TO LOOK AT WHAT SHE IS

DOING.

THANK YOU, CRYSTAL.

QUITE AMAZING.

WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: WELL, WE'RE

GOING TO BE ANSWERING YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

SO DON'T GO AWAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Terry: IT'S TIME TO

BRON"BRING IT ON."

ASHLEY SAYS, "I GAVE BIRTH

TO MY FIRST CHILD, A

BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL, IN

SEPTEMBER 2014.

ONCE I WAS GIVEN BIRTH,

NOT ONE PERSON FROM OUR

CHURCH CALLED OR CAME BY

THE HOSPITAL TO VISIT US,

WHICH CAUSED ME TO BE

DEEPLY HURT.

WE WERE ACTIVE IN MUSIC,

SOUND AND IN OUR TITHING.

WE WERE ALSO MARRIED

THERE.

AND WHEN WE DIDN'T RETURN

TO THE CHURCH BECAUSE OF

THIS, THE PREACHER WAS

VERY RUDE TO ME.

THE CHURCH HAS TREATED US

LIKE WE FELL OFF THE FACE

OF THE EARTH.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET

OVER IT.

AND WE HAVEN'T FOUND A NEW

CHURCH.

THE CHURCH IN GENERAL

WOULD KEEP FAITHFUL PEOPLE

AROUND IF THEY SHOWED THEY

CARED.

HOW SHOULD PEOPLE REACT

WHEN THEY ARE HURT BY A

CHURCH?"

Gordon: ASHLEY, THERE

IS NO PERFECT CHURCH.

AND IF THERE WERE A

PERFECT CHURCH -- I LOVE

WHAT BILLY GRAHAM SAYS, IF

THERE WERE A PERFECT

CHURCH, I WOULD JOIN IT

AND INSTANTLY, IT WOULDN'T

BE PERFECT ANYMORE.

YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND

THAT.

THESE ARE ALL PEOPLE, AND

THEY THING HAVE THINGS THAT

OCCUPY THEM.

I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THEY

DIDN'T MEAN TO IGNORE YOU

OR YOUR CHILD.

SO WALK IN FORGIVENESS.

WHEN YOU LET DEFENSE GET

IN THE WAY OF LOVING

SOMEBODY, THAT'S WHEN YOU

NEXT TO CHECK AND SAY, I

NEED TO GET THIS OUT AND

GET RID OF THIS.

JESUS IS VERY SPECIFIC: IF

YOU HAVE OUGHT AGAINST

ANYONE DON'T EVEN BOTHER

TO BE AT THE TEMPLE.

DON'T EVEN TRY TO GIVE

OFFERINGS AT THE TEMPLE.

LEAVE IT BEHIND.

GO MAKE IT RIGHT FIRST

WITH YOUR BROTHER AND THEN

COME BACK.

SO I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU

TO DO THAT.

IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE A

MEMBER OF THAT CHURCH,

THAT'S YOUR DECISION.

BUT YOU NEED TO MAKE IT

RIGHT.

I WOULD GO, AND, NUMBER

ONE, I WOULD ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS.

I HAVE HELD THIS AGAINST

YOU, AND ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS, FOR

RESTORATION OF FRIENDSHIP

AND RELATIONSHIP.

AND SEE WHERE THAT GOES.

AND HOPEFULLY THERE WILL

BE RECONCILIATION.

DO WE HAVE TIME FOR ONE

MORE?

Terry: NO, WE DON'T.

Gordon: YEAH, WE DO.

Terry: DONAHUE SAYS,

"I RECENTLY SAW MY SON

PLAYING A GAME ON HIS

COMPUTER CALLED THE

BINDING OF ISAAC REBIRTH.

I WAS PROVEN WRONG WHEN I

SAW MY SON SLAUGHTERING

BLEEDING CHILDREN IN THIS

GAME.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Gordon: GET RID OF

THE GAME.

YOU CONTROL WHAT YOUR

CHILDREN DO.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM LUKE: "THE

THINGS WHICH ARE

IMPOSSIBLE WITH MEN ARE

POSSIBLE WITH GOD."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT

WEEK.
