The 700 Club - November 18, 2015

Best-selling author Eric Metaxas discusses his latest book that examines the lives of seven women who changed the course of history by following God’s call upon their lives. Read Transcript


IS AMERICA ON THE VIRGE

OF ANOTHER GREAT

AWAKENING?

IT AIN'T OVER UNTIL GOD

SAYS IT'S OVER.

PLUS, AUTHOR ERIC

METAXAS ON SEVEN WOMEN WHO

CHANGED THE WORLD.

IN EVERY ONE OF THE

SEVEN WOMEN, I THINK YOU

SEE A DIFFERENT SIDE OF

FEMININITY.

AND THEN A VICTIM OF A

CAR CRASH TAKES A TRIP TO

HEAVEN.

I FELT LIKE I WAS IN

THE ARMS OF GOD, OF JESUS

CHRIST HIMSELF.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, ISIS IS ON

THE MOVE, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

AND THE PRESIDENT IS

STANDING FAST.

HE SAYS THEY'VE BEEN

DEGRADED AND THEY'RE NOT

AFFECTIVE AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT, AND PEOPLE ARE

SAYING, WHAT ARE YOU

THINKING?

WELL, AMERICANS ARE MORE

CONCERNED THAN EVER THAT

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS WILL

TRY TO SLIP INTO THE

UNITED STATES.

BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA ISN'T

BACKING DOWN FROM HIS PLAN

TO LET 10,000 SYRIAN

REFUGEES INTO THIS COUNTRY

NEXT YEAR.

Wendy: SO NOW

GOVERNORS AND MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS ARE TRYING TO PUT

THAT PROGRAM ON HOLD.

THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE

THAT ANY REFUGEES THAT

COME INTO THIS COUNTRY

DON'T POSE A THREAT.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: REPUBLICAN

LEADERS IN CONGRESS ARE

JOINING A MAJORITY OF THE

NATION'S GOVERNORS, TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STOP

MORE SYRIAN REFUGEES FROM

ENTERING THE COUNTRY.

NEW HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL

RYAN AND MITCHELL

McCONNELL URGED AT LEAST

A TEMPORARY PAUSE IN THE

RESETTLEMENT OF SYRIANS,

DISPUTING THE CLAIMS THAT

THE SMALL NUMBERS MAKING

THEIR WAY INTO THE U.S. SO

FAR ARE BEING THOROUGHLY

INVESTIGATED.

OUR NATION HAS ALWAYS

BEEN WELCOMING, BUT WE

CANNOT TAKE TERRORISTS

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR

COMPASSION.

THIS IS A MOMENT WHERE IT

IS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN

TO BE SORRY.

SO WE THINK THE PRUDENT,

THE RESPONSIBLE THING IS

TALK A PAUSE IN THIS

PARTICULAR ASPECT OF THIS

REFUGEE PROGRAM IN ORDER

TO VERIFY THAT TERRORISTS

ARE NOT TRYING TO

INFILTRATE THE REFUGEE

POPULATION.

Charlene: WITH MANY

AMERICANS ON EDGE AFTER

THE PARIS ATTACKS, SEVERAL

LAWMAKERS HAVE ALREADY

PROPOSED LEGISLATION TO

RESTRICT OR BLOCK REFUGEES

FROM SETTLING IN THE U.S.

WE HAVE SLEEPER CELLS

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY IN

EVERY STATE.

VERY CHALLENGING, AS FAR

AS THE F.B.I., TO FOLLOW

THEM, AND OUR HOMELAND

SECURITY.

SO WE MUST BE RECOGNIZING

THAT WE HAVE A SECURITY

ISSUE RIGHT HERE.

Charlene: MORE THAN

30 GOVERNORS OPPOSE THE

OBSTRATION'S PLAOBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

PLAN TO ALLOW 10,000

REFUGEES FROM SYRIA TO

ENTER NEXT YEAR.

CRITICS QUESTION IF IT CAN

GET THE JOB DONE.

ROBERT PITENGER SAYS HE

BELIEVES GOVERNORS SHOULD

HAVE THE FINAL SAY, AND

NOT THE PRESIDENT.

HE IS NOT A MONARCH.

AND HE NEEDS TO WORK WITH

THE CONGRESS, AND THE

CONGRESS, OF COURSE, WANTS

TO WORK WITH THE

GOVERNORS.

THEY'LL BE THE ONES WHO

ARE RESPONSIBLE.

Charlene: SENATOR

CHARLES SCHUMER OF NEW

YORK BROKE WITH MOST IN

HIS PARTY, SAYING A PAUSE

IN ACCEPTING SYRIAN

REFUGEES MAY BE NECESSARY.

MEANWHILE, CHRISTIAN

RELIEF AGENCIES SAY IT IS

IMPORTANT THAT THE CHURCH

NOT LET FEAR HINDER

SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH

THE REFUGEES.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT

DOESN'T HAVE TO BE

POLARIZED AT EITHER SAFE

OR COMPASSIONATE.

WE CAN BE SAFE AS WELL AS

WE REACH OUT TO THOSE

COMMUNITIES AND WELCOME

SYRIAN REFUGEES.

Charlene: MEANWHILE,

AUTHOR JOHNNIE MOORE

AGREES THAT THE VETTING

PROCESS NEEDS TO BE

SCRUTINIZED MORE

THOROUGHLY.

EVERY SINGLE MEMBER OF

ISIS IS A MUSLIM.

SO IT IS A FACT WE NEED TO

BE MORE SCRUTINIZING

AGAINST SYRIAN REFUGEES.

I THINK THE SOLUTION IS AT

BOTH ENDS: YOU PAUSE, YOU

MAKE SURE OUR VETTING

PROCESS IS SUFFICIENT, AND

IN THE MEANTIME, WE

PROVIDE SPECIAL TREATMENT

TO THOSE WHO CLEARLY

AREN'T MEMBERS OF ISIS.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS,

CHARLENE.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO THOSE

PEOPLE.

BASHAR al-ASSAD -- THIS

MISMANAGEMENT OF SYRIA HAS

RESULTED IN A HUMANITARIAN

DISASTER.

AND THE FACT THAT OUR

PRESIDENT HASN'T MOVED

AGGRESSIVELY, AS HE SHOULD

HAVE, TO TAKE LEADERSHIP

IS ANOTHER PROBLEM.

AND NOW ISIS HAS MOVED

INTO THAT VOID.

> IN OTHER NEWS, RADICAL

ISLAMIC TERRORISM IS STILL

A MAJOR THREAT IN FRANCE.

A FEMALE SUICIDE BOMBER

BLEW HERSELF UP IN PARIS

TODAY AS POLICE CLOSED IN

ON HER HIDEOUT.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

HERE IS JOHN.

John: THANKS, PAT.

POLICE WERE STORMING THE

WOMAN'S APARTMENT WHEN SHE

DETONATED HER EXPLOSIVE

SUICIDE VEST.

THE RAID TODAY IN THE

PARISIAN SUBURB OF

SAINT-DENIS LASTED SEVEN

HOURS, WHERE POLICE CLOSED

IN ON AN APARTMENT WHERE

THEY BELIEVE AT LEAST A

DOZEN ISIS OPERATORS WERE

HIDING.

SEVEN MORE WERE ARRESTED.

POLICE WERE MET WITH UNS

EXPECTANTLY VIOLENT

RESISTANCE AS THEY CLOSED

IN ON THE APARTMENT.

> WELL, PARISIANS HAVE

BEEN STARTING TO MOVE ON

WITH THEIR LIVES AFTER THE

ATTACKS, ALTHOUGH THAT, OF

COURSE, HAS BEEN

DIFFICULT.

BUT AS ABIGAIL ROBERTSON

REPORTS FROM PARIS,

CHRISTIANS ARE THERE TO

HELP THOSE FIND HOPE IN

THE CRISIS.

Reporter: EUROPEAN

GOVERNMENTS MAY HAVE

FLAGGED FRIDAY'S

TERRORISTS WELL-BEFORE THE

ATTACKS.

YET, DESPITE ALL OF THIS,

PARISIANS ARE DOING THEIR

BEST TO MOVE FORWARD, BUT

THE MOOD IN MANY OFFICES

IS JUST NOT THE SAME.

WE HAVE TVs

EVERYWHERE, AND WE'RE

LOOKING AND LOOKING AND

LOOKING, STARING AT THE

TV.

Reporter: NOW THAT

THEY KNOW THE ATTACKERS

WERE BORN AND RAISED IN

FRANCE AND BELGIUM, MANY

AROUND THE COUNTRY WONDER,

IS IT SAFE MOVING FORWARD?

THEY ARE HERE.

AND MAYBE THESE GUYS -- WE

DON'T KNOW.

I'M AFRAID.

Reporter: FRENCH

CHRISTIANS ARE HEADING TO

THE MEMORIALS TO HELP

COMFORT THOSE GRIEVING, AS

WELL AS FRENCH-SPEAKING

CHAPLAINS FROM THE "BILLY

GRAHAM RAPID RESPONSE

TEAM."

WE WANT TO BRING HOPE

IN THE TIME OF CRISIS.

Reporter: THE PEOPLE

OF PARIS ARE HARDLY DONE

HEALING.

THE "BILLY GRAHAM RAPID

RESPONSE TEAM" BROUGHT

EIGHT CHAPLAINS TO THE

CITY, TO SPREAD GOD'S LOVE

AND MINISTER TO THE PEOPLE

DURING THIS DIFFICULT

TIME.

STANDING WITH PEOPLE,

JUST LISTENING TO THEM,

PRAYING WITH THEM IF THE

OPPORTUNITY IS THERE.

AND ALSO STANDING WITH THE

LOCAL CHURCH AND

ENCOURAGING THE LOCAL

CHURCH TO RESPOND.

Reporter: THE

CHAPLAINS WILL BE HERE FOR

AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRAYING

WITH PEOPLE, AND HELPING

CHURCHES PLAN VIGILS LIKE

THIS ONE, TO REACH OUT TO

THE COMMUNITY DURING THESE

CHALLENGING TIMES.

PEOPLE ARE RESPONDING

TO THIS "PRAY FOR PARIS"

INITIATIVE.

WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE THE

CHURCH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF THAT AND TO CREATE

MAYBE PRAYER VIGILS, TO

MAYBE COME AND PRAY AT THE

SITES OF THE DIFFERENT

SHOOTINGS, AND WE WILL

STAND ALONGSIDE THEM.

I INVITE PEOPLE SO WE

CAN PRAY TOGETHER.

IT IS SIMPLE.

Reporter: THE TEAM

ASKS IN PRAYER THAT GOD

WILL LEAD THEM TO HIM, AND

THEY WILL FIND

OPPORTUNITIES TO MINISTER

TO PEOPLE READY AND

WILLING TO HEAR THE

MESSAGE OF HOPE JESUS

OFFERS THEM.

REPORTING FROM PARIS,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Efrem: HERE AT HOME,

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE JOHN

CASE CAS SAYJOHNKASICH SAYS HE WOULD SET

UP AN AGENCY COUNTER

PROPAGANDA FROM ISLAMISTS.

THEY WOULD PROMOTE HUMAN

RIGHTS, DEMOCRACY, AND THE

FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND

RELIGION, WITH THE FOCUS

ON THE MIDDLE EAST, CHINA,

IRAN, AND RUSSIA.

HE FEELS AMERICA IS

FAILING TO ADVANCE

AMERICAN VALUES.

AND PAT WILL BE

INTERVIEWING KASICH AT

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

ON FRIDAY, RAND PAUL WILL

ALSO BE ON "THE 700 CLUB"

AS PART OF OUR SERIES OF

INTERVIEWS WITH THE

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES.

PAT?

Pat: I THINK IT WILL

BE EXCITING.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL MEETING

WITH JEB BUSH A FEW WEEKS

AGO.

JOHN KASICH TODAY.

AND THEN I THINK THE

DONALD IS GOING TO BE

STOPPING BY, ALONG WITH

CRUZ AND RUBIO.

SO WE'LL HAVE A NUMBER OF

THE CANDIDATES.

AND WE'LL GIVE YOU A

CHANCE TO HEAR WHAT THEY

BELIEVE.

I BELIEVE IT WILL BE FUN.

I'VE KNOWN JOHN KASICH FOR

MANY, MANY YEARS, AND I

THINK YOU'LL FIND THIS A

VERY ENLIGHTENING

DISCUSSION.

AND IT WILL BE ON "THE 700

CLUB" TOMORROW.

AND I THINK I WE'LL BE

STREAMING IT OUT OF THE

THEATER AT REGENT

UNIVERSITY TODAY.

JOHN?

John: RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY HAS BEEN PLAYING

PROMINENTLY IN THE

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

PRIMARY, AMONG MANY OF THE

CANDIDATES.

INCLUDING AT A RECENT

EVENT IN A KEY PRIMARY IN

SOUTH CAROLINA.

Reporter: THIS

WEEKEND SAW BEN CARSON AND

TED CRUZ DESCEND ON THE

PAUL METO STATE.

THERE IS A REASON THAT

CANDIDATES COME OFTEN TO

SOUTH CAROLINA.

IT HAS 50 DELEGATES TO

AWARD, AND IT IS A

PARTICULARLY GOOD GROUND

FOR CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

CANDIDATES.

CARSON WAS ATTENDING A

TOWNHALL WITH TIM SCOTT.

HE HAD IT AS BOB JONES

UNIVERSITY, WHICH USED TO

ACTIVELY PRACTICE RACIAL

DISCRIMINATION.

BOB JONES UNIVERSITY,

LIKE ALL OF US, WE HAVE

ALL HAD TO EVOLVE.

I'M SO PROUD OF THE

PROGRESS THAT HAS HAPPENED

HERE.

AND, FRANKLY, THAT HAS

HAPPENED ALL ACROSS SOUTH

CAROLINA.

Reporter: A REPORTER

WONDERED IF BEN CARSON

WORRIED HE WOULD LOSE

VOTES BECAUSE HE WAS

SPEAKING AT BOB JONES.

I'M NOT A POLITICIAN.

I DON'T GO AROUND WITH MY

FINGER IN THE AIR

THINKING, WILL THIS BE A

PROBLEM FOR THE CANDIDACY.

Reporter: NEXT DAY AT

BOB JOINS, THE TOPIC WAS

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AS TED

CRUZ LED A RALLY AGAINST

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION.

MANY FOLKS IN THE MEDIA

BELITTLE THE THREAT TO

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

THE PURPOSE OF THESE

CONFERENCES IS TO PUT A

HUMAN FACE, A HUMAN STORY,

ON THESE THREATS SO PEOPLE

UNDERSTAND THEY ARE REAL

AND THEY ARE GROWING.

Reporter: A NUMBER OF

FOLKS ATTACKED FOR THEIR

FAITH WERE ON THE STAGE.

COACH JOE KENNEDY HAS BEEN

SUSPENDED FOR PRAYING ON

THE 50-YARD LINE AFTER

GAMES.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS TOLD

HIM --

IT IS YOUR RIGHT TO

PRAY, BUT WE DON'T WANT

ANYBODY SEEING YOU DOING

IT.

YOU SHOULD GO AND HIDE,

LIKE I SHOULD BE ASHAMED

OF WHAT MY BELIEFS ARE.

Reporter: AND THIS

COUPLE LOST THEIR LICENSE

FOR REFUSING TO DO GAY

WEDDINGS.

WE BECOME BIGOTS,

RACISTS, AND WORDS I CAN'T

EVEN USE.

IT WAS HARD TO LIVE

THROUGH.

Reporter: TONY

PERKINS FROM THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL, CALL

THESE ATTACKS THE NEW MARK NEW MAC THE NEW

McCARTHYISM.

YOU'RE ALIENATED AND

MARGINALIZED, AND YOU'RE

TREATED LIKE A THROWBACK.

THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS

DEMONSTRATED A PARTICULAR

AANTIPOTHY FOR CHRISTIANS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA USES

THE PHRASE "FREEDOM TO

WORSHIP."

WHEN HE SAYS FREEDOM TO

WORSHIP, IT MEANS YOU CAN

GO BETWEEN 11 a.m. AND

12:00 ON SUNDAY AND SAY

WHAT YOU WANT, BUT AT

12:01, WHEN YOU WALK OUT

THOSE DOORS, YOU HAVE NO

RIGHT TO LIVE ACCORDING TO

YOUR FAITH.

Reporter: RIGHT HERE

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BIBLE

BELT, SOUTH CAROLINANS ARE

AS WORRIED AS OTHERS,

WHICH WAS A GOOD REASON TO

HAVE A RALLY ON THAT VERY

SUBJECT RIGHT HERE IN THIS

STATE.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING

FROM SOUTH CAROLINA.

Efrem: AND, PAT,

WE'RE 94 DAYS AWAY UNTIL

THAT PRIMARY IN SOUTH

CAROLINA.

Pat: I MUST SAY, I

TRAVELLED -- WHEN I WAS

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, I

TRAVELLED ALL OVER SOUTH

CAROLINA.

I HAD A BUS.

AND I WENT DOWN TO THE LOW

COUNTRY, AND THEY SAID,

YOU'RE THE FIRST CANDIDATE

SINCE GEORGE WASHINGTON TO

COME HERE.

I LET THEM KNOW THAT I

CARRIED.

A GUY NAMED LEE ATWATER,

WHO WAS BUSH'S MAN, HAD

LOCKED UP SOUTH CAR SOUTH CAROLINA,

AND IT WASN'T GOING TO

COME LOSE FOR ME.

SO I THINK I RAN THIRD IN

THE STATE.

BUT IT IS GOING TO BE A

KEY.

SOMEBODY WHO IS ABLE TO

SCORE WELL IN SOUTH

CAROLINA WILL HAVE A LEG

UP ALL OVER THE SOUTH.

SO IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT

PRIMARY.

MORE SO, IN MY OPINION,

THAN IOWA.

AND MORE SO, REALLY, THAN

NEW HAMPSHIRE.

Wendy: BUT YOU WON IN

IOWA?

Pat: ACTUALLY, I WAS

SECOND.

THE HEADLINES WERE

ROBERTSON BEATS BUSH.

HE WON THE STATE BUT HE

DIDN'T GET ANY CREDIT FOR

IT.

WHEN I CAME TO SOUTH

CAROLINA, I CAME IN THIRD

BECAUSE I HAD TWO TOUGH

OPPONENTS.

IT WILL BE WIDE OPEN, BUT

IT IS A KEY, KEY PRIMARY.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

CHRISTIAN LEADERS FROM

AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE

RAISING THE FLAG IN A WAY

NOT SEEN SINCE THE

REVOLUTIONARY WAR.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

KNOW WE WERE BORN UNDER A

PRAYER MOVEMENT, WITH A

FLAG THAT SAID "APPEAL TO

HEAVEN," BUT WE WERE.

Wendy: DUTCH SHEETS

AND OTHERS MAKE THEIR

APPEAL TO HEAVEN ON BEHALF

OF AMERICA.

THAT'S NEXT.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

WELL, 2012 HA 2015 HAS BEEN A

CHALLENGING YEAR FOR THE

CHURCH.

PEOPLE FACED JAIL TIMES

AND LAWSUITS, SIMPLY FOR

STANDING UP TO THEIR

FAITH.

THESE EVENTS HAVE LED TO

CONCLUSIONS LIKE,

AMERICA'S BEST DAYS OR

OVER.

BUT A NUMBER OF CHRISTIAN

LEADERS SAY NOT SO FAST.

THEY KICKED OFF A RALLY

CALLED "APPEAL TO HEAVEN,"

AND MANY PEOPLE ARE

ANSWERING THE CALL.

A WHITE FLAG WITH A LARGE

EVERGREEN FLIES OVER

HUNDREDS GATHERED IN

MIDDLETOWN, OHIO.

NOT FOR SURRENDER, BUT FOR

AMERICA'S FUTURE.

ORGANIZER DUTCH SHEETS

TOLD ME THE SIGNIFICANCE.

HE HAS TAKEN ME BACK TO

OUR ROOTS AS A NATION.

AND THIS MOVEMENT THAT

BIRTHED A NATION.

A HO LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T KNOW

THAT WE WERE BORN UNDER A

PRAYER MOVEMENT WITH A

FLAG THAT SAID "APPEAL TO

HEAVEN," BUT WE WERE.

Wendy: SHEETS HAS LED

MANY NATIONAL CALLS TO

PRAYER, AND HE SAYS THE

"APPEAL TO HEAVEN" FLAG

WAS USED BY GEORGE

WASHINGTON'S RAG-TAG ARMY

DURING THE REVOLUTION, A

WAR WHERE THERE SEEMED TO

BE NO HOPE OR PATH TO

VICTORY.

WE CAN'T GET OUR

INDEPENDENCE.

HUMANLY SPEAKING, WE HAVE

NO ARMY, NO WEAPONS, NO

MONEY -- THEY HAVE ALL OF

IT.

THEY HAVE THE GREATEST

EMPIRE MAYBE EVER.

BUT IF GOD IS IN THIS, IF

THIS IS GOD'S IDEA, IF HE

REALLY IS RAISING UP A

CITY ON A HILL TO BE A

LIGHT TO THE NATIONS,

HE'LL HELP US.

AND THEY PUT THAT ON THE

FLAG, "APPEAL TO HEAVEN,"

AND THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS,

THERE IS NO OTHER HOPE, SO

WE'RE GOING TO APPEAL TO

HEAVEN.

Wendy: BISHOP HARRY

JACKSON SAYS AMERICANS

NEED TO REMEMBER THE

ORIGINAL MISSION OF OUR

FOREFATHERS.

GOD'S ORIGINAL INTENT

WAS TO HAVE A LAND THAT

WOULD PREACH THE GOSPEL,

SHARE THE GOOD NEWS AROUND

THE WORLD.

OUR PROSPERITY IS TIED TO

THE PURPOSE OF GOD.

Wendy: HE SAYS IT IS

ALSO A TIME FOR THIS

NATION TO PRAY FOR UNITY

AND FORGIVE OTHERS.

THE CHURCH HAS GOT TO

OWN THE FACT THAT WE HAVE

BEEN DIVIDED, AND GOD HAS

GIVEN US THE CAPACITY, THE

ONLY GROUP IN THE WORLD,

THAT HAS THE CAPACITY TO

RISE ABOVE THESE ETHNIC

DIFFERENCES, IS THE CHURCH

OF JESUS CHRIST.

Wendy: THIS "APPEAL

TO HEAVEN," IS A MOVEMENT

DESIGNED TO WAKE UP THE

BODY OF CHRIST, AND LET

THEM KNOW WHEN IT COMES TO

AMERICA, IT AIN'T OVER.

I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY

SAY ABOUT THE UNBORN, I

DON'T CARE WHAT THEY SAY

ABOUT MARRIAGE, IT AIN'T

OVER UNTIL GOD SAYS IT IS

OVER.

WE'RE GOING TO CHANGE

THESE THINGS.

Wendy: LOU ENGLE,

WHO'S PRAYER MOVEMENT

CALLED "THE CALL,"

PREDICTS A WAVE OF GOD'S

OUTPOURING THAT WILL BE

BIGGER THAN ANYTHING WE'VE

SEEN BEFORE.

IT WILL NOT JUST BE

FASTING AND PRAYER, BUT A

PROCLAMATION OF THE

GOSPEL.

SIGNS OF WONDERS AND

STADIUMS WILL BE FILLED.

IT IS TIME FOR THE JESUS

MOVEMENT.

IT IS THE JESUS DAYS.

Wendy: CHRISTIANS

SHARING A PASSION TO SEE

AMERICA TURN BACK TO GOD

CAME HERE FROM ACROSS THE

COUNTRY TO BE A PART OF

THIS PRAYER MOVEMENT.

I'M CONSTANTLY PRAYING

FOR THIS NATION, PRAYING

FOR THIS GENERATION.

WE CAN BELIEVE THAT GOD

WILL HEAR OUR CRY AND

HE'LL SHIFT THINGS.

I'M WALKING AWAY WITH

HOPE AND I'M WALKING AWAY

WITH FAITH.

Wendy: AND SHEETS

ALSO UNVEILED A

FREE iPHONE APP THAT

WILL SPREAD THIS MOVEMENT

TO THE DIGITAL AND SOCIAL

MEDIA UNIVERSE.

IT IS CALLED "GIVE HIM

THIS TEAM."

FOR THE FIRST TIME

TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS US -- WE

CAN GET EVERYBODY ON

BOARD.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

THE SAME CHURCH, THEY

DON'T HAVE TO BE A PART OF

THE SAME MOVEMENT.

ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

SAY, LORD, I PRAY FOR, AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

KNOW THAT ALL OVER THIS

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

NATION MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

ARE GOING TO BE PRAYING

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

THAT SAME PRAYER.

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

TALK ABOUT THE POWER OF

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

AGREEMENT AND THE SYNERGY

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

THAT CAN TAKE PLACE...

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

Wendy: MANY HOPE GOD

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

WILL DO FOR THIS

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

GENERATION WHAT HE DID FOR

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

GEORGE WASHINGTON'S.

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

EVEN WHEN IT LOOKED LIKE

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

ALL HOPE WAS LOST, GOD

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

INTERVENED BECAUSE HIS

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PEOPLE APPEALED TO HEAVEN.

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

THERE HAS GOT TO BE A

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

HOPE THAT COMES THAT SAYS,

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

WAIT A MINUTE, IF WE

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

APPEAL TO HEAVEN, HE CAN

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

PULL THEIR PHONE OUT AND

TURN THIS THING AROUND.

TURN THIS THING AROUND.

Wendy: GOD CAN DO IT.

PAT, IT AIN'T OVER.

Pat: I LOVE IT.

DUTCH SHEETS IS A GREAT

GUY.

BUT, LISTEN, WHY NOT?

IF MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE

CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL

HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY

AND SEEK MY FACE, THEN I

WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN AND

FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL

THEIR LAND.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE NEED.

IT'S AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN.

Wendy: YOU KNOW WHY

THERE IS AN EVERGREEN ON

THAT FLAG THAT GEORGE

WASHINGTON USED?

BECAUSE WHEN THE FIRST

SETTLERS CAME OVER, THEY

WERE GREETED BY THE

MAMMOTH EVERGREENS.

THEY WERE GREAT FOR

BUILDING HOMES.

IT WAS ABOUT A RESOURCE IN

GOLD, PAT.

THEY'RE USING ALL OF THESE

GREAT TREES, AND ENGLAND

SAYS, WAIT A MINUTE, I

THINK WE CAN USE THOSEMENT

THETHOSE.THEY PASSED A LAW

RESTRICTING THE USE.

AND FOR THE FIRST

COLONISTS THOUGHT, THAT

DIDN'T SIT WELL.

BUT THAT'S WHY IT IS ON

THE FLAG, "APPEAL TO

HEAVEN."

Pat: THEY WERE CALLED

THE HEART PINE.

THEY WERE INCREDIBLE.

THEY USED THEM SO MUCH

THEY WENT EXTINCT.

SO YOU DON'T HAVE HEART

PINE ANYMORE, EXCEPT IN

OLD, OLD BUILDINGS.

THE GREAT BIG THING WOULD

SERVE AS A MASS FOR A

SHIP, TO HOLD THE SAILS OF

THOSE BIG SHIPS.

I THINK IT MAY HAVE BEEN

PUNISHMENT BY DEATH IF

SOMEBODY CUT ONE OF THEM

DOWN.

NO WONDER THE SETTLERS

WERE UPSET BECAUSE IT WAS

A RESOURCE FROM GOD.

Wendy: AND THIS "GIVE

HIM 15" APP, THEY CAN GET

MILLIONS PRAYING ON THE

SAME DAY.

I TOLD THEM CBN IS GOING

TO GET ON BOARD.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON

THE "APPEAL TO HEAVEN,"

MOVEMENT, AND HOW TO

DOWNLOAD THE G-15 APP,

JUST GOING TO cbn.com.

Pat: IT WAS A GREAT

PIECE.

BUT IT STIRS YOUR HEART.

AND TO SEE GUYS LIKE DUTCH

SHEELTSHEETS AND LOU ENGLE, WHO

ARE JUST SO PASSIONATE.

IT IS LIKE YOU THROW A

MATCH IN DRY TINDER, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE THING

TAKES OFF.

Wendy: WHAT DO A

LEGENDARY WARRIOR, A CIVIL

RIGHTS HERO, AND A MOTHER

OF TWO METHODISTS HAVE IN

COMMON?

THEY'RE JUST TWO OF THE

SEVEN WOMEN ERIC METAXAS

PROFILES IN HIS LATEST

BOOK.

IF GOD CREATED FEMALE

IN MALE'S IMAGE, IT IS

GOING TO SHOW GOD'S

GREATNESS.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHO

ELSE MADE THE CUT WHEN WE

RETURN.

Wendy: ONE HID JEWS

IN HER BEDROOM, ANOTHER

DIED IN A GERMAN

CONCENTRATION CAMP.

ONE STOOD UP FOR THE CAUSE

OF SLAVES.

ANOTHER SAT DOWN FOR THE

CAUSE OF CIVIL RIGHTS.

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF

THE SEVEN WOMEN FEATURED

IN ERIC METAXAS' LATEST

BOOK.

AS HE TOLD US RECENTLY,

THEY ALL REFLECT GOD IN A

UNIQUE WAY.

Reporter: ERIC

METAXAS, AUTHOR OF THE

BEST-SELLING BIOGRAPHIES

HAS RELEASED ANOTHER

GROUNDBREAKING BOOK.

HIS LATEST, SEVEN WOMEN,

CHRONICLES THE LIVES OF

SOME OF HISTORY'S

HEROINES.

I THOUGHT, THIS WILL BE

A WAY TO TELL YOUNG MEN

THAT THIS IS GOD'S IDEA OF

A GREAT MAN.

AND THEN INSTANTLY PEOPLE

SAID, WHEN ARE YOU GOING

TO WRITE SEVEN WOMEN?

I THOUGHT, RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: SOME

SUGGESTED WOMEN LIKE SALLY

RYDE, THE FIRST AMERICAN

WOMAN IN SPACE.

THAT'S A MASCULINE WAY

OF LOOKING AT ACHIEVEMENT,

LOOKING AT WHO DID IT

FIRST, AND ALSO THAT WOMEN

ARE SECOND.

I THOUGHT, IF GOD CREATED

US MALE AND FEMALE IN HIS

IMAGE, IT IS LEANING INTO

WHO WE ARE AS WOMEN THAT

IS GOING TO SHOW GOD'S

GREATNESS.

SO IT SEEMS THAT THE SEVEN

WOMEN I PICKED ARE

PARTICULARLY FEMALE.

JOAN OF ARK, FOR EXAMPLE,

WAS NOT A MACHO WARRIOR.

SHE WAS A TREMENDOUSLY

FEMININE, INNOCENT, YOUNG,

HOLY WOMAN OF GOD, WHICH

IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE OF

WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT IN A

WARRIOR, WHICH IS WHAT

MADE HER THIS FIGURE OF

VENERATION, EVEN AMONG

THESE HARDENED SOLDIERS,

THAT THEY TREATED HER

DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE THEY

WERE IN AWE OF THE SENATES

AND PURITY AND SOMETHING

BEAUTIFUL ABOUT HER.

IN EVERY ONE OF THE SEVEN

WOMEN, I THINK YOU SEE A

DIFFERENT SIDE OF

FEMININITY.

Reporter: HE DECIDED

TO TELL THE STORIES HE WAS

EXCITED ABOUT.

YOU HAVE TO PICK SEVEN

STORIES.

SO SOME OF THE STORIES I

KNEW.

I STARTED THERE, THE STORY

OF HANNAH MOORE.

JOAN OF ARK, AMAZING

STORY.

AND I ALREADY KNEW THE

STORY OF ROSA PARKS.

SO THESE WERE STORIES I

ALREADY KNEW I WAS EXCITED

TO TELL.

Reporter: AS A

BIOGRAPHY, ERIC KNOWS NO

ONE IS PERFECT.

WHILE HE DOESN'T SHY AWAY

FROM TELLING THE SOMETIMES

UGLY TRUTH, HE SAYS IT IS

IMPORTANT NOT TO DEMEAN

OTHERS IN THE PROCESS.

YOU CAN'T GIVE THE

SUGAR-COATED VERSION, BUT

YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW

EVERY NEGATIVE THING ABOUT

EVERYONE.

THERE ARE BEAUTIFUL

THINGS.

I THINK WE HAVE FORGOTTEN

HOW TO PRESENT THE GOOD

THINGS WITHOUT FEELING IT

IS TAGOGRAPHY.

WE NEED TO SEE PEOPLE LIVE

THEIR LIVES, AND HOW THEY

STUMBLE AND HOW THEY GET

UP.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

ERIC HAD HIS FINAL LIST:

JOAN OF ARK, SUSANNA

WESLEY.

HANNAH MOORE.

MARIA SKOVICH.

ROSA PARK, AND MOTHER

TERESA.

EACH OF WHOM CHANGED THE

WORLD IN SOME WAY.

ERIC BELIEVES WE CAN ALL

LEARN SOMETHING FROM THEIR

UNIQUE AND STUNNING

STORIES.

I THINK THIS IS A WAY

TO HELP PEOPLE, QUITE

FRANKLY.

I THINK PEOPLE ARE LOOKING

FOR THESE KINDS OF THINGS.

I KNOW PEOPLE ARE GOING TO

READ THESE STORIES AND

THEY WILL BE MOVED AND

CHANGED BY IT.

AND THAT'S IMPORTANT.

Wendy: WHAT A

FASCINATING BOOK.

AND IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY

TO START THINKING ABOUT

CHRISTMAS PRESENTS, AND

ERIC METAXAS' BOOK IS A

GOOD ONE.

IT IS CALLED "SEVEN WOMEN,

AND THE SECRET OF THEIR

GREATNESS," AND YOU CAN

PICK A COPY WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

COMING UP, A WOMAN IS

TRAPPED IN A BURNING CAR

WHEN SOMEONE COMES TO HER

RESCUE.

IT WAS A PERSON WHO I

KNEW WASN'T OF THIS WORLD.

IIT WAS A HEAVEN-SENT

PERSON IN AN ANGELIC FORM.

AND HE JUST LIFTED ME UP

AND I WENT WITH HIM.

Wendy: WOW!

SEE WHERE HE TOOK HER WHEN

WE COME BACK.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

SNOOZCBNNEWS GREY

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

AND WE'RE SO HAPPY TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

WE'VE GOT A GOOD STORY FOR

YOU NOW.

TRACY STATLER, TRAPPED IN

A BURN INFERNO AFTER SHE

AND HER HUSBAND WERE HIT

BY A DRUNK DRIVER.

HER CAR COULD HAVE BECOME

HER COFFIN, HAD NOT A

STRANGER APPEARED TO

RESCUE HERE.

A PERSON TRACY DESCRIBED

AS, QUOTE,"NOT OF THIS

WORLD."

THERE WAS SO MUCH

WRECKAGE PUSHED IN ON US,

WE COULDN'T MOVE.

TRACY WAS LITERALLY

TRAPPED BY THE ENGINE AND

EVERYTHING ELSE, THAT HAD

COLLAPSED IN ON HER.

I LOOKED AT MY HUSBAND,

AND HE REACHED OVER TO TRY

TO UNBUCKLE MY SEAT BELT,

AND, WHOOSH, HE STARTED ON

FIRE.

I TRIED GETTING TO HIM,

BUT I COULDN'T MOVE.

I WAS TRAPPED.

Reporter: DAN AND

TRACY STATLER WERE

FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES

INSIDE THEIR CRUSHED AND

BURNING CAR.

THEY WERE HIT BY A DRUNK

DRIVER.

THE DRIVER OF THE OTHER

VEHICLE WAS DEAD.

DAN AND TRACY WERE TRAPPED

AND BADLY INJURED.

THE WHOLE ENTIRE CAR

WAS FILLED WITH SMOKE.

I COULD SMELL THE BURNING

LEATHER.

I COULD SMELL THE BURNING

FLESH.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO

START ON FIRE VERY SOON

BECAUSE I COULDN'T

BREATHE.

I COULD FEEL MY LUNGS

BURNING.

Reporter: MOTORISTS

ARRIVED ON THE SCENE AND

QUICKLY BEGAN RESCUE

EFFORTS TO GET THEM OUT OF

THEIR BURNING CAR.

THEY STOPPED THEIR CAR

AND RAN UP TO OUR CAR,

WHICH WAS ENGULFED IN

SMOKE AND FLAMES.

THEY BEGAN PRAYING AND

MOVED INTO ACTION.

THEY WERE DOING EVERYTHING

THEY COULD, SPIRITUALLY,

TO HELP RESCUE US.

HOWEVER GOD'S WILL WAS

GOING TO PLAY OUT, THEY

WERE THERE, VISITED IN IT.

I REMEMBER LEANING UP

AND LOOKING AT ALL OF

THESE PEOPLE LINED UP.

AND THEY WERE HYSTERICAL.

Reporter: ONE MAN

PULLED ON THE DRIVER'S

SIDE DOOR FRAME UNTIL THE

WINDOW FINALLY BROKE OUT.

THE WINDOW SHATTERED

INTO A THOUSAND PIECES.

I WAS LITERALLY ON FIRE AT

THAT POINT.

MY FACE, MY HEAD, MY RIGHT

SIDE, MY RIGHT ARM, MY

RIGHT LEG, THEY WERE ALL

BURNED.

I PULLED MYSELF OUT, AND

THEY CAME OVER AND GRABBED

ME AND TOOK ME OVER ON THE

MEDIAN, ON THE GRASS, AND

ROLLED ME OVER AND PUT THE

FIRE OUT THAT WAY.

IN THE MEANTIME, TRACY WAS

TRAPPED IN THE CAR.

SHE COULD FEEL HER FACE

BURNING.

AND AT THAT POINT -- AT

THAT POINT SHE WAS

CONVINCED SHE WAS GOING TO

DIE.

I REALIZED, THIS IS IT.

I'M LEAVING.

AND SO I PRAYED.

I PRAYED.

I SAID PRAYERS I NEVER

EVEN KNEW WERE IN MY MIND.

I SAID, FATHER, I PRAY

THAT YOU FORGIVE ME FOR MY

SINS.

YOU SAID YOU HAVE MANY

MANSIONS IN HEAVEN, AND I

PRAY THERE IS ONE FOR ME.

AND I SAID, PLEASE DON'T

LET ME BURN TO DEATH.

AND THEN I LOOKED UP, AND

THERE HE WAS.

WHEN I SAY "HE," IT WAS A

PERSON I KNEW WASN'T OF

THIS WORLD.

IT WAS A HEAVEN-SENT

PERSON IN AN ANGELIC FORM.

AT THAT POINT, HE JUST

LIFTEDED ME UP AND I WENT

WITH HIM.

HE PULLED ME OUT AND WE

STARTED GETTING FURTHER

AWAY FROM THE ACCIDENT

SITE.

AT THAT POINT I KNOW I

LEFT MY BODY.

I KNOW I DID.

HE TOLD ME I COULD LOOK

BACK IF I WANTED TO, BUT I

DIDN'T WANT TO.

THE FURTHER WE GOT AWAY

FROM THE ACCIDENT SITE,

THE MORE PEACE I FELT --

SUCH PEACE -- AND THE

LOVE.

THE LOVE CAN'T BE

EXPLAINED.

WE'RE TOO FINITE IN OUR

WORDS.

A LOVE LIKE YOU'RE GOING

HOME.

THERE WAS NO PAIN.

NO REGRET.

ONLY ANTICIPATION.

THE ONLY THING THAT

MATTERED WAS MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

AND I FELT LIKE I WAS IN

THE ARMS OF GOD, OF JESUS

CHRIST HIMSELF.

Reporter: TRACY SAYS

AS THEY ASCENDED INTO

HEAVEN, SHE SAW HER

GRANDMOTHER, WHO DIED WHEN

TRACY WAS A LITTLE GIRL.

AND I WAS SO THRILLED

TO SEE HER.

AND SHE WAS SO THRILLED TO

SEE ME.

SHE KNEW ME AND I KNEW HER

RIGHT AWAY.

AND I STARTED TO GO

TOWARDS HER.

AND I STOPPED.

AND I SAID, MEGAN -- AND

THAT'S OUR OLDEST

DAUGHTER, WHO WAS NINE

MONTHS OLD AT THE TIME.

AND I SAID, I HAVE TO GO

BACK.

I MEAN, I KNEW I WAS GOING

TO SEE THE FACE OF GOD.

I KNEW IT.

AND -- BUT I COULDN'T LET

MEGAN GROW UP ALONE.

AND WE STARTED GOING DOWN.

AND THIS WAS JUST THE

OPPOSITE OF GOING UP.

IT WAS HARD.

IT WAS COLD.

IT WAS FAST.

AND IT WAS PAINFUL COMING

BACK.

Reporter: SHE SAID

HER SPIRIT RETURNED TO HER

BROKEN AND BURNED BODY.

AT THE SAME TIME, RESCUERS

SAW A MAN WALK OUT OF THE

WOODS AND UP TO THE CAR.

AND THEY SAW HIM COME

CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE

CAR.

HE SEEMED TO HAVE A GLOW

ABOUT HIM.

AND AT THE SAME TIME,

THERE WAS ANOTHER MAN WHO

WAS BEHIND ALL OF THIS

GOING ON.

HE WAS PRAYING FERVENT THE

FOR OUR RESCUE AND

RECOVERY.

AND HE SAID, JUST AS THE

ANGEL CAME UPON THE SCENE,

HE WAS BUCKLED TO HIS

KNEES BECAUSE HE FELT THE

HEALING POWER OF JESUS

CHRIST SO INTENSELY THAT

IT JUST OVERPOWERED AND

OVERWHELMED HIM.

ONE OF THE RESCUERS --

THAT WAS WHEN HE WAS ABLE

TO FREE TRACY.

AND HE SAID SHE WAS JUST

AS LIGHT AS A FEATHER.

SHE ESSENTIALLY POPPED

RIGHT OUT IN HIS HANDS.

IF THE ANGEL WAS THERE, HE

BENT OVER HER AND HE PUT

HIS HANDS OVER HER FACE.

HE TOOK HIS HANDS AND I

KNEW HE WAS HEALING ME.

AND HE SAID, TRACY,

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

ALL RIGHT.

HE HEALED ME.

HE TURNED AND LOOKED

AND LOCKED EYES WITH ONE

MAN IN PARTICULAR.

AND VERY SLOWLY AND

DELIBERATELY HE SAID, TAKE

CARE OF TRACY.

NOBODY KNEW OUR NAMES AT

THAT POINT.

TRAYTRACY'S PURCHASES IN THE

CAR BURNED UP.

SHE WAS PULLED

UNCONSCIOUS.

I HAD NOT SPOKEN HER NAME.

SO FOR HIM TO KNOW HER

NAME COULD ONLY HAVE BEEN

HEAVEN-SENT.

Reporter: THE MAN

TURNED AND WALKED BACK

INTO THE WOODS.

EMERGENCY WORKERS ARRIVED

AT THE SCENE AND

TRANSPORTED DAN AND TRACY

TO THE NEAREST HOSPITALS.

THEY RECOVERED FROM

MULTIPLE FRACTURES AND

DAN'S SEVERELY BURNED

BODY.

BUT TRACY SAYS THE

PRESENCE AND PEACE OF GOD

WAS WITH HER WHEN SHE

PRAYED.

THAT SUSTAINED ME.

I COULD FEEL PEACE FROM MY

HEAD TO MY TOE.

IT WORKED BETTER THAN ANY

PHARMACEUTICAL OUT THERE.

IT REALLY DID.

THE PEACE -- I WOULD PRAY

TO BE FILLED WITH PEACE.

Reporter: IN THEIR

BOOK, "ANGELS IN THE

FIRE," DAN AND TRACY

RECOUNT HOW GOD HAS USED

THE CRASH TO SHOW HIS

PRESENCE IN THEIR LIVES.

THEY SAY THEY'VE BEEN

THANKFUL THEY'VE BEEN

GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE IN

LIFE, EVEN IN DIFFICULT

TIMES.

I JUST RECOGNIZE THE

FACT THAT GOD IS WITH ME

EVERY DAY.

THROUGH EVERYTHING.

THE LITTLEST DECISIONS,

YOU KNOW, HE IS THERE.

GOD WAS THERE FOR US.

JESUS CHRIST WAS THERE FOR

US.

HE GAVE US -- HE GAVE

TRACY A PARTICULAR

HEALING.

HE HAS USED WHAT HAPPENED

TO US FOR MANY OTHER

THINGS.

WE DO HAVE A LOT OF JOY IN

OUR LIVES.

NOT ALWAYS HAPPINESS OR

THRILLED AT SOME OF THE

CHALLENGES WE FACE, BUT

THE JOY OF CHRIST IS

ALWAYS WITH US.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I WAS

SAVED, BUT HE, FOR SOME

REASON, THOUGHT I WAS

WORTH SAVING.

I'M VERY THANKFUL FOR

THAT.

I REALLY AM.

Pat: WHAT A STORY.

LISTEN, FOLKS, WE'VE GOT

SOME TESTIMONIES.

FOR MANY MONTHS, RUBY, OF

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, HAD

TROUBLE WITH ONE OF HER

FINGERS.

IT WAS SWOLLEN, SHE WAS

UNABLE TO MOVE IT,

CONTINUOUS PAIN.

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCH THIS

PROGRAM AND HEARD WENDY

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE,

THAT THERE WAS SOMEBODY

WITH A SWOLLEN AND PAINFUL

FINGER, AND THE LORD WAS

HEALING IT.

AND SHE HAD NO PAIN.

Wendy: CHRISTY HAD NO

MEDICAL CARD AND DID NOT

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE," AND SHE

HEARD YOU SAY, SOMEBODY

STEPPED ON A PIECE OF

GLASS, AND YOUR IN-STEP IS

INFECTED AND, CUT, AND

HURTING, AND IMMEDIATELY

THE PAIN IN CHRISTY FOOT

WAS GONE.

Pat: FOLKS, WE LIVE

IN A WORLD THAT IS

INHABITED BY ANGELS, A

WORLD THAT IS OVERSHADOWED

BY THE PRESENCE OF

ALMIGHTY GOD.

AND WITH HIS POWER,

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS UPON

US, AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO

IS TURN TO HIM AND HE IS

ABLE.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER.

WE'LL BELIEVE GOD FOR YOU.

FATHER, I BELIEVE WITH MY

SISTER IN CHRIST, AND WE

PRAY FOR THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE WHO ARE SUFFERING

AND HURTING IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

SOMEBODY, OH, MY, YOUR

VOMITING, AND SOMETHING

INSIDE YOUR STOMACH IS

HURTING.

YOU JUST CRIED, OH, GOD,

HELP ME.

RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT GOD

HAS HEARD YOU AND YOU'RE

BEING HEALED IN JESUS'

NAME.

WENDY?

Wendy: THERE ARE

PEOPLE WITH SCOLIOSIS,

AND, LORD, YOU'RE TOUCHING

THEM RIGHT NOW AND THEY

ARE BEING HEALED.

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

SAID, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO

LIVE WITH THIS, IT HAS

LASTED SO LONG.

AND GOD IS SAYING, IS

ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME?

YOU'RE BREAKTHROUGH IS

COMING.

JUST REJOICE.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR SPINE,

AROUND THE NECK LINE,

WHERE YOUR COLLAR IS.

A COUPLE OF THE VERTEBRA

ARE DETERIORATING.

RIGHT NOW GOD IS REACHING

THAT RIGHT NOW AND YOU'LL

FEEL HEAT, AND ALL OF THE

ARTHRITIS IS GOING AWAY IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

Wendy: I'M GETTING

FINGERS AND TOES,

ARTHRITIS -- ANY PROBLEM

YOU'RE HAVING WITH FINGERS

AND TOES, GOD IS HEALING

YOU RIGHT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

Pat: FATHER, WE HEARD

ABOUT DUTCH SHEETS AND

THAT PRAYER, AND, LORD,

WE'RE PRAYING FOR THIS

GREAT NATION IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

WE ASK YOU TO BRING US TO

A POINT OF REPENTANCE,

WHICH IS WHAT WE NEED.

IF WE WOULD SEE OUR SINS

FORGIVEN AND YOU WOULD

COME AND HEAL OUR LAND.

LORD, BRING US TO A POINT

OF REPENTANCE, THAT YOUR

NAME MAY BE HONORED.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

ALL RIGHT, IT'S TIME TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH

QUESTION FROM OUR IN-BOX.

HEIDI SAYS, "IS IT OKAY TO

MAKE DEALS WITH GOD?"

PAT WILL TACKLE THAT

QUESTION AND MUCH MORE

WHEN WE RETURN.

Wendy: THIS

THANKSGIVING, TAKE TIME TO

GIVE TO THOSE IN NEED, TO

THANK GOD FOR THE MANY

BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE.

IF YOUR A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, WATCH FOR FO THIS

ENVELOPE.

THERE IS A RECIPE CARD,

AND IT LOOKS SO GOOD.

PLEASE SEND YOUR GIFTS TO

CBN CENTER.

AND YOU CAN ALSO CALL US

AT 1-800-759-0700.

OR LOG ON TO cbn.com.

IF YOU'RE NOT A PARTNER,

GIVE US A CALL AND WE'LL

SEND YOU THAT RECIPE AND

THE PRAYER CARD TO ENJOY

THIS THANKSGIVING SEASON.

Pat: WENDY, WE'RE

YEARS, DECADES NOW, AND

PERSONALLY WE'VE MADE IT

AS A GOAL TO.

OUT HOFIGURE OUT

HOW MUCH OUR CHRISTMAS IS

GOING TO COST, HOW MUCH

OUR THANKSGIVING IS GOING

TO COST, AND THEN TO WRITE

A CHECK FOR THAT AMOUNT TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" OR TO

THE RELIEF FUND THAT WE'VE

GOT GOING SO THAT

CHRISTMASTIME WE CAN GIVE

A JOYOUS HOLIDAY TO SOME

PEOPLE LESS FORTUNATE.

TO HELP THOSE IN NEED.

Wendy: THAT REALLY

FEELS BETTER, SOMETIMES,

THAN GETTING A LOT OF

PRESENTS.

Pat: YOU BETTER

BELIEVE IT, MUCH BETTER.

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB," YOU'RE HELPING

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD,

LIKE THIS FAMILY IN

CAMBODIA, WHO STRUGGLE

EVERY DAY JUST TO FIND

WATER.

Reporter: EVERY

MORNING AS SHE LEFT FOR

SCHOOL, 12-YEAR-OLD HATT

WATCHED HER DAD STRUGGLE

AS HE CARRIED A BUCKET TO

GET WATER FROM A DISTANT

STREAM.

MY DAD HAS ONLY ONE

LEG, SO I WORRY ABOUT HIM

GETTING WATER ALONE.

I WISH I COULD HELP HIM

WITH IT, BUT HE WANTS ME

TO GO TO SCHOOL.

Reporter: HE LOST HIS

LEG WHEN HE STEPPED ON A

LANDMINE MANY YEARS AGO.

SINCE THEN HIS WIFE HAS

BEEN WORKING IN THE RICE

FIELDS, WHILE HE HAS TAKEN

OVER THE HOUSEHOLD CHORES.

THAT INCLUDES LIMPING DEEP

INTO THE FOREST TO COLLECT

WATER THREE TIMES A DAY.

IT TAKES ME ALMOST ONE

HOUR TO GET THE WATER.

MY LEG AND MY WHOLE BODY

ARE IN SO MUCH PAIN THAT I

CANNOT SLEEP AT NIGHT.

Reporter: TO MAKE

MATTERS WORSE, THE WATER

HE COLLECTS IS MURKY AND

FILLED WITH BACTERIA.

SOMETIMES WHEN THE WATER

IS LOW, HE HAS TO CLIMB

DOWN INTO THIS HOLE TO

COLLECT IT.

IT IS DIFFICULT FOR ME

TO BEND OVER WITH JUST ONE

LEG.

SOMETIMES I SLIP AND FALL

INTO THE HOLE.

I DON'T WANT TO DRINK

THE WATER.

IT SMELLS LIKE MUD.

SOMETIMES I SEE BUGS AND

FROGS IN IT.

IT TASTES BAD, AND IT

MAKES MY STOMACH HURT.

I GET SICK, AND MY MOM HAS

TO TAKE ME TO THE HEALTH

CENTER.

I FEEL SORRY FOR MY

DAUGHTER.

I'M AFRAID SHE WILL BECOME

SERIOUSLY ILL FROM

DRINKING THE WATER.

Reporter: SO CBN DUG

A WELL FOR HIM AND OTHER

VILLAGERS RIGHT NEXT TO

HIS HOME.

THE WATER FROM THE CBN

WELL LOOKS SO CLEAR.

IT SMELLS GOOD AND TASTES

DELICIOUS.

Reporter: NOW, THEY

NOT ONLY HAVE FRESH WATER

TO DRINK AND BATHE, THEY

ALSO HAVE ENOUGH FOR THEIR

VEGETABLE GARDEN.

OUR FAMILY EATS THE

VEGETABLES, AND WE HAVE

MORE THAN ENOUGH TO SELL

IN THE VILLAGE.

SOON WE WILL RAISE DUCKS,

PIGS, AND COWS.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR OUR

WELL.

Pat: FOLKS, THAT'S

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CAN

HELP.

ISN'T IT MARVELOUS YOU CAN

GIVE JOY TO SOMEBODY ALL

THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD

IN CAMBODIA?

IMAGINE HAVING TO DRINK

THAT MUCKY STUFF.

I WOULDN'T DRINK IT, AND

NEITHER WOULD YOU.

BUT THOSE FOLKS DON'T HAVE

ANY CHOICE.

YES, THEY CAN BOIL IT, BUT

IT TASTES HORRIBLE.

I WAS DOWN IN PERU GIVING

OUT SOME MEDICINE THAT WE

GAVE OUT DOWN THERE, BUT

MOST OF THE CHILDREN HAVE

WORMS.

AND THE WORMS JUST EAT

THEIR STRENGTH.

BUT FOR A FEW CENTS YOU

CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

AND I'LL TELL YOU, WE DO

THAT.

SO IF YOU WANT TO BE A

PART, PLEASE CALL AND SAY,

LOOK, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME

AS A "700 CLUB" MEMBER.

Wendy: ARE YOU READY?

Pat: LET'S GO FOR IT.

Wendy: YOU LOOK

READY.

HEIDI WRITES IN, "IS IT

WRONG TO MAKE DEALS WITH

GOD?"

Pat: WELL, IT WAS

WRONG -- ABRAHAM WAS DOING

SOMETHING WRONG BECAUSE HE

MADE A DEAL WITH GOD.

ANGELS WERE GETTING READY

TO GO TO SODOM AND

GOMORRAH AND THEY WANTED

TO DESTROY THE CITY, AND

SO ABRAHAM GOT UP THERE

AND STARTED NEGOTIATING.

HE STARTED OFF KIND OF

BIG.

AND HE GOT GOD TO SAY,

YES, OKAY, I WON'T

DESTROY.

HOW ABOUT THIS MANY?

OKAY, I WON'T DESTROY HIM.

HE FINALLY GOT THEM DOWN

TO 10 PEOPLE.

AND GOD SAID, IF I CAN

FIND 10 RIGHTEOUS IN THAT

CITY, I WON'T DESTROY IT.

BUT THERE WASN'T 10

RIGHTEOUS, AND GOD HAD TO

DESTROY THEM.

YOU FIND PEOPLE WHO ARE

PRAYING AND CRYING OUT TO

GOD FOR THIS.

BUT THAT ISN'T LIKE MAKING

A DEAL, LIKE GOD, IF

YOU'LL GIVE ME -- WELL,

JACOB DID IT, IF YOU TAKE

CARE OF ME AND BRING ME

BACK SAFELY, I'LL GIVE YOU

BACK 10%.

BUT HE WAS THE ULTIMATE

TRICKSTER, SO I DON'T KNOW

IF THAT PLEASED GOD OR

NOT.

YOU HAVE BIBLICAL EXAMPLES

OF PEOPLE WHO NEGOTIATE

WITH THE ALMIGHTY.

I'M NOT SURE IF THAT IS

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, BUT IT

HAPPENED.

Wendy: VICKI WRITES,

"MY SISTER IS COMMITTING

ADULTERY WITH OUR SISTER'S

HUSBAND, AND SHE IS

MARRIED AS WELL.

NOT ONLY HAS OUR CHURCH

BEEN SUPPORTIVE, THEY

ALLOW HER TO BE IN CHARGE

OF CHILDREN AND OTHER

MINISTRIES.

DO YOU THINK A CHURCH

KNOWING A PERSON IS NOT

LIVING ACCORDING TO THE

WORD, BE IN CHARGE OF

CHURCH SERVICES?"

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

THIS IS AN ABOMINATION

BEFORE THE LORD.

YOU GO TO THAT PERSON AND

SAY, LISTEN, YOU'RE MY

SISTER.

YOUR SLEEPING WITH THAT

GUY AND HE'S THE HUSBAND

OF A SISTER.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

NOW YOU'VE GOT TO SHAPE UP

OR ELSE.

AND IF SHE SAYS NO, THEN

BRING IN A FEW OTHERS.

AND IF NOT, YOU TREAT HER

LIKE AN INFIDEL.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

YOU REALLY HAVE TO DEAL

WITH SOMETHING LIKE THAT

BECAUSE THAT IS A SIN

WHERE GOD HIMSELF WOULD

COME DOWN AND BRING

JUDGMENT ON THAT WHOLE

CHURCH.

AND YOU DON'T WANT THERE THAT TO

HAPPEN.

Wendy: TAMMY SAYS,

"MY HUSBAND AND I PASTOR A

SMALL CHURCH.

IN THE BEGINNING, MY

HUSBAND STOPPED DRINKING,

BUT NOW SAYS THERE IS

NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

OUR CHURCH MEMBERS HAVE

DECLINED.

IT SEEMS HE IS PERFORMING

INSTEAD OF USHERING UP

INTO PRAISE.

HE IS THE HEAD OF OUR HOSE

HOLD, SO WHAHOUSEHOLD, SO WHAT DO I

DO?"

Pat: IT IS THE SAME

THING.

IF HE WON'T LISTEN TO ONE

PERSON, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE

A GROUP COME TO HIM.

IF HE WON'T HEAR YOU, TAKE

IT TO THE WHOLE CHURCH.

THIS -- APPARENTLY -- I

CAN'T FIND IN THE BIBLE

THAT IT SAYS YOU DRINK A

BEER OR YOU DRINK ONE

GLASS OF WINE, OR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT, THAT

YOU SOMEHOW HAVE LOST YOUR

BLESSING.

BUT IT IS OBVIOUS IN THIS

CASE THAT HE MUST BE AN

ALCOHOLIC OR HE IS

PROBABLY DRINKING TO

EXCESS, AND HIS BRAIN IS

ADDLED.

AND FOR HIS ONLY GOOD, YOU

NEED TO HAVE AN

INTERVENTION.

I DON'T KNOW THE

SITUATION, BUT IT NEEDS TO

BE BROUGHT TO LIGHT.

Wendy: APRIL SAYS,

"DEAR, PAT, HAVE YOU EVER

KNOWN SOMEONE WHO WAS

HEALED OF TYPE 1 DIE

BEATLES.

OUR SON HAS SUFFERED FROM

THIS DISEASE SINCE HE WAS

TWO.

HE IS NOW 13.

PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYING

FOR HIS HEALING."

Pat: WE HAVE A PRAYER

TEAM HERE, AND WE'LL BE

PRAYING FOR HIM.

YOU SAID, DO I KNOW

ANYBODY -- THERE IS NO

DISEASE THAT GOD WON'T

HEAL.

JESUS HEALED EVERY SINGLE

DISEASE THAT PEOPLE HAD.

HE HEALED LEPROSY.

AND HE HEALED CANCER.

AND HE HEALED MENTAL

DISEASE.

AND HE DROVE OUT DEMONS.

SO THERE IS NO QUESTION HE

CAN HEAL TYPE 1 OR TYPE 2

DIABETES.

BUT IT MAY MEAN IT WILL

TAKE A STRICT REGIMEN OF

DIET AND EXERCISE TO GET

YOUR SYSTEM STRAIGHTENED

OUT.

Wendy: MRS. JAY SAYS,

"HAVE ALL OF THE BIBLICAL

PROPHECIES LEADING UP TO

THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST

BEEN FUL FULFILLED?"

Pat: I'VE HEARD EVERY

ONE HAS, AND I'VE HEARD

OTHERS SAY, NO, IT HASN'T.

I THINK THERE IS MORE

COMING THAT HAS GOT TO BE

DONE BEFORE THE LORD COMES

BACK.

BUT TO SAY THAT HE'S FAR

AWAY -- I THINK HE IS AT

THE DOOR.

BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE

DOOR AND KNOCK.

HE IS THERE AT THE DOOR.

AND IT'S JUST A QUESTION

OF HOW SOON THAT HE COMES

BACK.

AND WHEN H WHAT HE IS GOING TO

PRECEDE IT WITH -- THE

BIBLE IS PRETTY CLEAR

THERE WILL BE SOME THINGS

THAT ARE GOING TO HAPPEN

I THINK WE'LL HAVE SOME

SERIOUS TROUBLE IN OUR

WORLD BEFORE HE COMES

BACK.

AND I DON'T THINK WE'VE

SEEN IT YET.

Wendy: I THINK WE'RE

BEGINNING TO SEE IT RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: WE'RE BEGINNING

TO SEE IT.

Wendy: WE'RE SEEING

THIS CLASH OF

CIVILIZATION --

Pat: I THINK ISLAM IS

THE ANTI-CHRIST, IN MY

OPINION.

Wendy: GUESS WHAT?

THAT WAS IT, AND THOSE

WERE FANTASTIC ANSWERS.

Pat: MY GOODNESS.

FOLKS, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR BEING WITH US.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH OUR

POWER MINUTE FROM JOHN 14:

"WHATEVER YOU ASK IN MY

"WHATEVER YOU ASK IN MY

NAME, THAT WILL I DO SO

THAT MY FATHER WILL BE

GLORIFIED IN THE SON."

REMEMBER, WE'VE GOT,

TOMORROW, HIGHLIGHTS FROM

OUR SIT-DOWN WITH

PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL JOHN

KASICH.

AND THEN WE'LL HAVE OTHER

CANDIDATES ALONG THE WAY.

I THINK YOU'LL ENJOY

GETTING TO MEET THEM UP

CLOSE AND PERSONAL AND

HEAR WHAT THEIR POINT OF

VIEW IS FOR THE WORLD.

WE APPRECIATE WENDY BEING

HERE WITH US.

AND WE APPRECIATE ALL OF

YOU AND WE THANK GOD FOR

YOU.

REMEMBER OUR TELEPHONES

ARE AVAILABLE ALL DAY

LONG, 24 HOURS A DAY, IF

YOU HAVE A NEED:

1-800-759-0700.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
