A little girl receives a healing miracle from God after a prayer on The 700 Club. Plus, Operation Blessing teams with The Salvation Army and Toys for Tots to bless families this Christmas. Read Transcript


> A LITTLE KINDNESS GOES

A LONG

WAY.

I JUST COLLECTED

DONATIONS FOR

ABOUT 2 WEEKS.

IT SPED OFF A CHAIN

REACTION.

NO ONE HAS EVER COME OUT.

PLUS, HEAD TO THE

CHARLOTTE

SPEEDWAY.

AND THEN A THREE-YEAR-OLD

IN PAIN.

SHE WOULD COME OUT OF THE

BLUE AND

SAY HER STOMACH WAS HURTING.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB".

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN

TO THIS EDITION OF THE "700

CLUB".

AMERICA'S FREEDOMS ARE UNDER

ATTACK.

THE STUDENTS AT MY ALMA

MATER, YALE

UNIVERSITY.

AN E-MAIL WITH A PETITION TO

OVERTAKE

THE 1ST AMENDMENT.

THEY ARE CALLING ON FREE

SPEECH.

THEY ARE TAKING IT TO A

WHOLE NEW

LEVEL.

THIS VIDEO SHOWS

FILMMAKER

SATIRIST HOROWITZ ON THE

UNIVERSITY

FOR AN APPEAL ON THE 1ST

AMENDMENT,

THE EXERCISE OF RELIGION,

FREEDOM OF

SPEECH, FREEDOM OF PRESS,

THE RIGHT

TO ASSEMBLE, THE RIGHT TO

PETITION.

THEY CALLED THE CLIP

AHEAD OF A

PRANK VIDEO.

HE WAS ABLE TO GATHER MORE

THAN 50

SIGNATURES IN LESS THAN AN

HOUR. MANY

OF THOSE THAT SIGNED WERE

STUDENTS.

THE VIDEO IS CAUSE FOR

CONCERN.

I THINK IT'S INDICATIVE

OF A

BROADER TREND THAT WE'VE

SEEN ON

COLLEGE CAMPUSES LATELY FOR

FREE

SPEECH AND SENSIBILITIES.

THAT'S WORTH Y IN AND OF

ITSELF.

EACH VIOLATE THE 1ST

AMENDMENT BY

DISRESPECTFUL SPEECH. NOW

1ST

AMENDMENT ADVOCATES ARE

SEEKING TO

PUSH BACK ON THESE CODES.

CENSORSHIP IS LIKE A

CANCER AND

EVENTUALLY EVERYONE HAS

SOMETHING TO

WORRY ABOUT.

THE BIG CONCERN, STUDENTS

ARE NOW

CALLING FOR RESTRICTIONS.

THE TERRIFYING THING TO

ME IS THAT

THE CURRENT WAVE OF

CENSORSHIP IS

COMING FROM STUDENTS, NOT

FROM THE

FACULTY.

STILL, IT'S A BIG LEAP

FOR

STUDENTS WHO WANT TO

OVERTHROW THE

1ST AMENDMENT.

I DON'T THINK THEY

CONSIDER THE

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS AND

ARGUMENTS

AGAINST FREE SPEECH.

I THINK THE VIDEO IN SOMEWAY

EXPOSES

THAT BECAUSE IRONICALLY

ABOLISHING

THE 1ST AMENDMENT WOULD

ABOLISH

HOROWITZ RIGHT TO CIRCULATE

SUCH

PETITION AND FOR STUDENTS TO

SIGN

SUCH PETITION.

HE SAYS THE VIDEO SHOULD

SERVE AS

WAKE UP CALL AND NOT VIEWED

AS

AMERICANS HAVE FOR SO LONG.

Pat: A 1955 GRADUATE FROM

LAW

SCHOOL.

IT WAS THE BEST LAW SCHOOL

OF THE

NATION.

AS AN ALUMNUS, I RECEIVED A

BOOKLET

FROM YALE LAW SCHOOL.

IT'S CALLED READING THE

KORAN AS A

LAW BOOK. IT'S FROM A

LECTURE BY

JOSEPH LAURIE, THE ASSOCIATE

PROFESSOR OF THE UNIVERSITY

OF

PENNSYLVANIA THAT IT SHOULD

BE TAKEN

AS A BOOK OF LAWS AFTER A

SAUDIA

BUSINESSMAN GAVE A $10

MILLION

DONATION TO THE LAW SCHOOL.

THE DEAN SAYS, "ISLAMIC LAW

HAS A

LONG AND PROUD TRADITION

WHICH

ENCOMPASSES GREAT

INTELLECTUAL

ACHIEVEMENT".

HE'S GOT TO BE KIDDING.

THIS IS YALE LAW SCHOOL.

ANYWAY,

JOINING US NOW IS DANNY WHO

IS AN

EXPERT IN ISLAMIC LAW.

OF COURSE HE SPEAKS FLUENT

ARABIC.

DANNY, YOU READ THIS

BOOKLET AND

LISTENED TO THE PROFESSOR BY

PROFESSOR LAURIE. WHAT IS HE

TRYING

TO SAY?

GOOD MORNING, PAT,

BASICALLY THAT

THE KORAN COMMANDS ARE

OPTIONAL AND

THEY ARE NOT SPECIFIC AND WE

SHOULD

BASICALLY TAKE THEM AS

FIGURATIVELY

AND SYMBOLIC AND NOT LITERAL.

IN FACT HE CALLED THE

TRADITIONAL

INTERPRETATIONS ARE AS NOT

TRUE AND

THE KORAN IS HIGHLY MYSTICAL

AND

SPIRITUAL. PEOPLE ARE TAKING

THE LAWS

AND THE KORAN AS TOO

SERIOUSLY AS HE

BASICALLY DESCRIBED IT.

MANY OF THE ISLAMIC LAWS

DON'T

COME FROM THE KORAN.

HOW DOES THE PROFESSOR DEAL

WITH

THAT?

WELL, YOU ARE RIGHT, PAT.

BASICALLY THE KORAN IS THE

SOLID

GROUND AS THE FOUNDATION ON

WHICH

EVERY MUSLIM FOLLOWS.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AND

FIGURATIVELY OR OPTIONAL.

THEY HAVE

TO FOLLOW THE COMMANDMENTS

OF THE

KORAN.

I'M REALLY NOT SURE WHAT

HE'S BASING

IT ON.

IN FACT, I READ HIS BOOK AND

MOST OF

HIS DESCRIPTIONS WERE

SUGGESTED IS

HE'S USING THE TERMS LIKE

"SUGGESTED", A GREAT

UNKNOWN, NO REAL

EVIDENCE. "HE'S TRYING TO

DRAW A

THEORY, SOMEHOW TO DIG OUT

OF A WAY

TO SHOW THAT THE KORAN HAS

FROM

PEACEFUL VERSES AND YOU CAN

GET THE

LAW AND FOLLOW IT.

THIS IS THEIR LAW CODE

AND HAS TO

DO WITH THE WOMEN AND THE

HUSBAND OF

HAVING THE PRIVILEGE OF

BEATING HIS

WIFE, IT HAS TO DO WITH BE

HEADING

AND HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH

THESE?

WHEN DEALING WITH THE

KORAN, YOU

HAVE TO SEE HOW THE PEOPLE

RECEIVED

IT IN THE EARLY DAYS OF

ISLAM.

HIS WHOLE PREMISE, HE SAYS,

WHEN THE

KORAN WAS DELIVERED IT WAS

ATTRACTIVE.

THEY MUST HAVE A DIFFERENT

UNDERSTANDING.

THEY MUST HAVE SEEN IT FROM

A

DIFFERENT ANGLE. IN FACT,

PAT, IF YOU

STUDY THE HISTORY OF ISLAM,

YOU WILL

FIND OUT IN THE EARLY DAYS

WHEN THESE

PEACEFUL VERSUS WERE AROUND

TWO-THIRDS OF THE KORAN WAS

WRITTEN

WAS NOT ACCEPTED BY THE

PEOPLE. IN

FACT THEY TRIED TO KILL THEM

AND THEY

HAD TO FLEE. WHEN HE BECAME

STRONG

AND CAME BACK WITH THE

ROYALTY VERSUS

WHICH AB GATED ALL THE

VERSUS CAME

FORWARD.

BASICALLY WHAT THE SHARIA

LAW IS YOU

TAKE THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE

KORAN

AND READ ABOUT THE LIFE OF

MUHAMMAD

AND YOU PUT IT TOGETHER AND

THAT'S

WHAT SHARIA LAW IS.

Pat: I WENT TO YALE LAW

SCHOOL AND

WHEN I WENT IT WAS THE BEST

LAW

SCHOOL OF THE NATION.

HARVARD

DISPUTED IT, BUT I THOUGHT

IT WAS THE

BEST LAW SCHOOL IN THE

COUNTRY.

THE DANGER OF USING THE

KORAN AS A

PROUD TRADITION. WITH A DO

YOU SAY TO

THAT?

AGAIN, THE KORAN IS

BASICALLY A

COMMANDMENT, IT'S A LAW, THE

PRINCIPLES IN THERE

UNDERSTANDING

THAT ALLAH WANTS EVERYONE TO

FOLLOW

THESE WORDS.

SO WHEN YALE UNIVERSITY IS

TRYING TO

BASICALLY ENDORSE OR APPLY

THE LAWS,

THEN, THERE WILL BE NO

SEPARATION

BETWEEN THE STATE AND ISLAM.

AND BASICALLY IF WE NEED TO

SEE AN

ACTUAL PRACTICAL ISLAMIC

STATE IN

IRAQ AND SYRIA, THEY ARE NOT

DRAWING

FROM THEIR CONSTITUTION FROM

ANYTHING

ELSE BUT FROM THE KORAN.

Pat: DANNY, THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I'M

APPALLED,

FRANKLY. YALE AND OUR NEWS

DEPARTMENT

QUESTIONED YALE DEPARTMENT.

SAID GIVEN THE

DISSEMINATION, WE

WOULD LIKE TO -- INFORM

THESE ISSUES.

I HATE TO USE THE TERM THEY

ARE IN

THE TANK OF THE SAUDIS, BUT

IF THEY

GIVE YOU $10 MILLION, YOU

BETTER TOW

THEIR LINE. THEY TALK ABOUT

THE

GOLDEN RULES.

IT'S OBVIOUSLY THEY BOUGHT

OFF YALE

AND SERIOUSLY WITH THESE

MONOGRAPHS

THEY ARE POINTING OUT.

WITH MONEY, IT'S SAFE SO

SAY.

Terry: ESPECIALLY HAVING

YOUR MIND

ENLIGHTENED BY THESE TO HAVE

STUDENTS

THAT ARE SO UNAWARE OF THE

MERIT OF

THE CONSTITUTION IS BEYOND

BELIEF IN

AN ACADEMIC PLACE.

IT SHOWS HOW

IMPRESSIONABLE THEY

ARE.

AS A FORMER ALUM, I'M AN --

ALUM.

I GOT THIS IN THE MAIL.

WELL, WENDY, WE'VE STARTED

THE BALL

ROLLING. WHAT DO YOU HAVE

NOW?

Wendy: PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE

HILLARY CLINTON CALLING OUT

DONALD

TRUMP.

HE IS BECOMING ISIS' BEST

RECRUITER. THEY ARE SHOWING

VIDEO OF

DONALD TRUMP INSULTING

MUSLIMS TO

CREATE MORE JIHADIST.

SHE'S MAKING IT UP.

HE SAYS SHE LIES ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

ON SUNDAY CLINTON'S

SPOKESPERSON

DEFENDED HER SAYING SHE'S

NOT AWARE

OF ANY VIDEO BUT THAT IT'S

BEING USED

FOR SOCIAL PROPAGANDA.

> A WOMAN PLOWED HER CAR

IN LAS

VEGAS TO DOZENS OF

PEDESTRIANS

KILLING AT LEAST 1 PERSON

AND INJURED

30 OTHERS.

OFFICIALS SAY SHE KNEW WHAT

SHE WAS

DOING WHEN SHE DROVE ON THE

STRIP AND

THEN DROVE BACK UP ON THE

SIDEWALK

HITTING MORE PEOPLE.

SHE WAS RUNNING OVER

EVERYBODY.

GOES FAST.

ACCELERATING THROUGH PEOPLE.

IT

TURNED AROUND SOME TYPE OF

TRUCK OR

SOMETHING TO SLOWDOWN AND

THEN

ACCELERATE AGAIN INTO THE

PEOPLE. I

COULDN'T SEE WHAT WAS GOING

ON.

AT THAT POINT IT WAS MAYHEM.

THERE WAS A CHILD IN THE

CAR WITH

HER.

THE WOMAN WAS EVENTUALLY

TAKEN INTO

CUSTODY.

> IRANIAN HACKERS TOOK

CONTROL OF

A SMALL DAM IN NEW YORK CITY.

A SMALL DAM IN RYE NEW YORK.

THIS CYBER ATTACK WENT ALL

THE WAY TO

THE WHITE HOUSE WHEN

GOVERNMENT

HACKERS HAD ALSO BEEN

TARGETING

BANKS. THAT FACTORIES AND

DAMS ARE

VULNERABLE TO INTERNET

HACKING.

IT WASN'T JUST ONE DAM.

FROM WHAT

I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE

DETAILED PLANS

OF THE ENTIRE POWER GRID TO

THE WEST

COAST.

THEY COULD HAVE SHUT POWER

TO

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. THEY

KNEW THE WAY

TO THE COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO

MAKE THIS

THING HAPPEN.

THAT'S JUST TO SHOW HOW

VULNERABLE WE

ARE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

CYBER CRIME THAT PEOPLE

DON'T KNOW

ABOUT, DON'T THINK ABOUT,

AND YET, IT

IS A MAJOR MAJOR ISSUE.

WE ARE VULNERABLE.

IF THEY ARE HACK THE

CONTROLS OF OUR

COMPUTERS IN OUR MILITARY,

THEY CAN

PARALYZE THE ARMED FORCES OF

THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

THEY CAN

CAUSE PLANES IN THE AIR TO

CRASH. IT

JUST GOES DOWN THE LINE.

WE ARE SO DEPENDENT ON OUR

COMPUTERS

AND SO CYBER TERRORISM.

I'M PLEASED TO REPORT THAT

REGENT

UNIVERSITY IS STARTING A

MAJOR COURSE

AND PERHAPS A DEGREE IN

CYBER

SECURITY SO PEOPLE WHO COME

HERE WILL

BE ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO

THE LATEST

TECHNOLOGY AND HOW THEY CAN

PREVENT

THIS, BUT IF WE DON'T HARDEN

THAT

GRID, AND IT'S NOT JUST SOME

HACKER.

OF COURSE IN AN ELECTRONIC

PULSE

COMING OUT OF AIR BORN

NUCLEAR BLAST

WOULD JUST FRY THE COMPUTERS

AROUND

THE WHOLE PART OF THE

COUNTRY, BUT

THERE IS ONE THAT IS A SOLAR

FLAIR

THAT COULD COME ANYTIME AND

IF IT

DOES, I MEAN TRANSFORMERS

ARE GOING

DOWN.

UTILITIES ARE BUYING BACK UP

GENERATORS AND TRANSFORMERS.

SO IF AN EVENT LIKE THIS

TAKES PLACE

AND TRANSFORMERS ARE DOWN,

THEY HAVE

SPARES TO PUT INTO EFFECT.

BUT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

WHAT WOULD

YOU DO WITHOUT ELECTRICITY?

THAT IS

A TERRIBLE PROSPECT.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMETHING ON A

GRAND SCALE.

WATCH HOW A LITTLE

EXPERIMENT AND

GENEROSITY TRANSFORMED THIS

CITY.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: IT IS GETTING CLOSE

TO

CHRISTMAS. THIS IS A HAPPY

TIME.

THERE IS A PLACE CALLED

TITUSVILLE.

IT DOESN'T GET MUCH

ATTENTION BUT AS

CAPE CANAVERAL KNOWN AS IT'S

SPACE

MISSIONS.

TITUSVILLE IS KNOWN FOR IT'S

OWN

MISSION. THE CITIZENS ARE

PERFORMING

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS.

PEOPLE

AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE

STARTING TO

TAKE NOTICE.

OFTEN IT'S A TRAGEDY LIKE

THE SAN

BERNARDINO TERROR ATTACKS,

THE

COMMUNITY IS COMING TOGETHER.

IN AN AGE WHERE PEOPLE ARE

SO WORRIED

ABOUT SEPARATION OF CHURCH

AND STATE,

THEY BROUGHT A WAY TO BRING

PEOPLE

AND DOZENS OF CONGREGATIONS

TO BRING

PEOPLE TOGETHER WHERE

ANYBODY IN THE

COMMUNITY CAN IMITATE.

IT'S A COMMUNITY BRINGING

RANDOM ACTS

OF KINDNESS AND PAYING IT

FORWARD.

THERE IS A RIPPLE EFFECT.

EVERY SECTOR OF OUR

COMMUNITY WAS

A PART OF 40 DAYS OF

GENEROSITY.

MUNICIPAL LEVEL, THE MAYOR.

THERE WAS SUCH A GRAND

SCALE THAT

THERE WAS NO WAY THIS CITY

WOULD STEP

UP AND SAY GO FOR IT.

DRIVE THROUGHS, ONE

GENEROUS ACT

WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT.

THE PERSON WOULD SAY, I

WOULD LIKE

TO TAKE CARE OF THE BILL OF

PEOPLE

BEHIND ME AND YOU WOULD HEAR

IT GOING

ON FOR 15 CARS LATER OF

TAKING CARE

OF THE BILL BEHIND THEM.

THAT

HAPPENED MANY MANY TIMES.

POLICE DEPARTMENT TOLD ME

NO ONE

HAS EVER COME OUT TO FEED

ALL OF

THEM.

IT TOOK PART IN THE

PROJECT TO

INVEST AND SHE INVESTED HER

DOLLARS

FOR SIGN MATERIAL.

YOU PUT SIGNS IN THE

COMMUNITY TO

HAVE A GARAGE SALE AND I LET

EVERYONE

KNOW I WAS HAVING ONE AND I

ACCEPTED

COLLECTIONS AND WE ENDED UP

RAISED

$3882.

IN EVERY COUNTY AND THEY

ARE GOING

TO BUILD AN EMERGENCY

SHELTER.

THEY WANTED TO MAKE THIS

PERSONAL.

WE SIT DOWN AS A FAMILY

SAYING HOW

CAN WE DO THIS AS A FAMILY.

HE SHOCKED HIM WITH HIS

GENEROSITY.

I DECIDED I WANTED TO

GIVE MY

BIRTHDAY MONEY TO THE

SHELTER

EMERGENCY FUND.

THEY GAVE ME A GIFT CARD

FOR $80

BACK.

YOU ARE FAITHFUL AND GOD

HONORED

YOU IN THAT.

SHE DECIDED TO BLESS HER

NEIGHBORHOOD WITH 20 PIZZAS.

EVERYBODY WANTED TO GET

IN AND

THAT'S HOW IT STARTED.

IT TURNED INTO A MASSIVE

BLOCK

PARTY FOR NEIGHBORS.

PEOPLE WERE ASKING, HOW

CAN I

BLESS YOU? WHAT IS IT THAT

YOU NEED?

RESTAURANT RECIPIENTS

SOME WERE

GIFTS MIRACULOUSLY ON TARGET.

SOME MOM'S WOULD SAY, MY

ELECTRIC

BILL IS DUE.

THE POWER WILL GO OFF IF I

DON'T PAY

IT.

STEVENS DINER WAS WOW.

PEOPLE WERE PICKING UP

THE CHECK.

IT'S MADE HE AND HIS

PARTNERS PICK

UP BLESSINGS TOO.

WE ARE GOING TO DESIGNATE

1 DAY TO

BRING THE FAMILIES IN NEED

AND WE'LL

BUY THEM DINNER.

HE SPEAKS ABOUT

GENEROSITY AT HIS

MINISTRY.

HE WANTS IT TO SPREAD

EVERYWHERE.

IT WILL HELP COMMUNITIES

TO BRING

GENEROSITY INTO THEIR

COMMUNITY TO

SEE GOD'S LOVE IN ACTION AND

SEE

LIVES TOUCHED AND CHANGED.

HOW? SOME OF THE 40-DAY

CARDS HAD

NO RELIGIOUS MENTIONED BUT

THE CARDS

POINTED TO VIDEOS THAT CAN

LEAD THEM

TO THEIR FATHER'S ARM.

I GAVE UP LOVE TO GIVE

LOVE.

IF YOU RECEIVE ME, NOTHING

WILL EVER

SEPARATE YOU FROM MY LOVE

AGAIN.

PEOPLE IN TITUSVILLE KNOW

MANY

PEOPLE WERE BLESSED DURING

THE 40

DAYS OF GENEROSITY AND NOW

THEY HOPE

THAT MANY PEOPLE ACROSS

AMERICA WILL

GIVE A CHANCE TO BLESS AND

BE BLESSED

IN RETURN.

Pat: THAT IS FANTASTIC.

YES.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WHAT A NICE THING, NOT ONLY

AT

CHRISTMAS BUT ALL YEAR LONG.

IF YOU

ARE INTERESTED IN PUTTING 40

DAYS OF

GENEROSITY IN YOUR

COMMUNITY, GO TO

OUR WEBSITE AT CBN.COM FOR

MORE

INFORMATION ON HOW TO DO IT.

TERRY,

ISN'T IT MARVELOUS?

Terry: IT'S WONDERFUL TO

SEE

GENEROSITY.

UP NEXT, REV YOUR ENGINES TO

SEE NONE

OTHER LIKE THE CHARLOTTE

MOTOR

SPEEDWAY.

IT'S A WAY TO CREATE

MEMORIES.

TAKE A LAP UNDER 3

MILLION LIGHTS,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Terry: NORMALLY GOING TO A

RACETRACK, YOU SEE CARS IN

FULL

THROTTLE. BUT NOW IT HAS

BEEN TURNED

INTO A WINTER WONDERLAND.

AS SEAN BROWN FOUND OUT,

THEY MAKE-UP

WITH A BIT OF CAMEL POWER.

HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE

MOTOR

SPEEDWAY WHICH IS FILLED

WITH NASCAR

FANS WITH CHEERING OF

DRIVERS BUT IT

TURNS INTO THIS.

CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY,

SPEEDWAY

CHRISTMAS. IT'S THE

CHRISTMAS

WONDERLAND FILLED WITH FUN

FOR THE

ENTIRE FAMILY. THERE ARE

ANIMALS,

CARRIAGE RIDES, TRAIN RIDES,

FOOD,

SHOPPING AND OF COURSE,

SANTA CLAUS.

BUT WHAT'S MORE IS YOU CAN

ACTUALLY

DRIVE ON THE SPEEDWAY.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE ACTUALLY

ON PIT

ROAD AT THE CHARLOTTE MOTOR

SPEEDWAY

GETTING ON THE TRACK WITH

THE LIGHTS.

IT'S SOMEWHERE 3.5 TO 4

MILES LOADED

WITH OVER 3 MILLION LIGHTS.

HERE WE GO.

HERE IS JONATHAN COLEMAN,

THE

SPEEDWAY'S MANAGER.

HOW DOES THIS COME ABOUT?

WE REALIZED WHEN WE LOOK

AT THE

SCHEDULE THAT IT'S A GREAT

THING TO

BRING TO FAMILIES AND BRING

MEMORIES.

WE DIDN'T HAVE A LOT GOING

ON.

ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO WE THOUGHT

WHY NOT

THROW A BUNCH OF LIGHTS AND

CREATE

SOME MEMORIES.

THEY WANTED TO MAKE SURE

THE TRUE

MEANING OF CHRISTMAS WASN'T

LOST IN

ALL THE SPECTACLE.

THEY CREATED BETHLEHEM

VILLAGE.

YOU KNOW, CHRISTMAS MEANS

DIFFERENT THINGS TO

DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

FOR SOME FOLKS IT'S SPARKLY

LIGHTS

AND SOME FOLKS IT'S THE

OPPORTUNITY

OF PRESENTS. THE TRUE

MEANING OF

CHRISTMAS AND BIRTH OF JESUS

CHRIST

IS SOMETHING WE DIDN'T WANT

TO

OVERLOOK WHEN WE PUT THIS

TOGETHER.

SINCE THE BEGINNING WE HAVE

PARTNERED

WITH CHURCHES IN THE

COMMUNITY TO

BRING OUT SOME OF THOSE LIVE

ACTORS

TO BRING THEM THAT FIRSTHAND

EXPERIENCE OF WHAT IT HAVE

BEEN LIKE

WHEN WERE AWAITING THE

ARRIVAL OF

JESUS CHRIST.

I'M SURE YOU WILL HAVE A

BLAST. AS

FOR ME, I HAD TO MAKE ONE

MORE STOP

BEFORE TAKING OFF. I HAD A

DATE WITH

A CAMEL.

IT'S NOT THAT BAD.

I WAS SITTING ON THE HUMP.

THAT WAS UNCOMFORTABLE. HEY,

MOM,

EVERYBODY.

CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY.

Terry: THAT'S A SLOW MOE.

Pat: I DID A LAP AROUND

THAT TRACK,

BUT IT DIDN'T HAVE ANY

LIGHTS OR

CAMELS.

YOU CAN GO PRETTY FAST.

ABOUT 145 MILES PER HOUR,

BUT THEY

HAD A GOVERNOR, I PUSHED IT

AS HARD

AS I COULD.

THAT IS A FRIGHTENING TRACK.

IT'S A

GLORIOUS CHRISTMAS.

Terry: EVERY YEAR MILLIONS

OF

CHILDREN WILL GATHER AROUND

THE

CHRISTMAS TREE AND TEAR OPEN

THEIR

PRESENTS.

SOME WOULDN'T GET THAT

CHANCE IF IT

WEREN'T FOR SALVATION ARMY

AND TOYS

FOR TOTS.

IT'S A WONDERLAND OF TOYS

IN

VIRGINIA.

MOM'S AND DAD'S FROM THE

AREA GET TO

FILL THEIR CARTS WITH

PRESENTS SURE

TO BRING A SMILE CHRISTMAS

MORNING.

IT'S CHRISTMAS AND THIS

BEGAN

SEVERAL YEARS AGO SHARING

FOR OUR

LESS FORTUNATE NEIGHBORS.

IT'S TOYS FOR TOTS AND

"OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR THOSE HAVING A

HARD

TIME AFFORDING GIFTS FOR

THEIR

CHILDREN.

CHRISTMAS IS ALWAYS GOOD

FOR THEM

AND 1 DAY THEY WILL WANT TO

VOLUNTEER

OR DONATE AND REMEMBER WHAT

IT GAVE

TO THEM AS A KID.

VERONICA WHITAKER

SHOPPING FOR HER

SON.

SHE WORKS AS A MEDICAL

ASSISTANT AND

DIDN'T EXPECT MUCH TO BE

UNDER THE

TREE THIS YEAR.

TODAY THAT CHANGED.

IT'S EMOTIONAL BECAUSE

YOU FEEL

SAD.

YOU WANT TO GET THEM WHAT

YOU WANT,

BUT WHEN YOU COME HERE, THE

PEOPLE

ARE SO NICE AND YOU GET

LIFTED AND SO

OVER GENEROUS.

JODY, VICE-PRESIDENT OF

THE

DISASTER RELIEF PROGRAM. SHE

UNDERSTAND WHAT COMING TO

THESE

DEPOTS MEANS TO PARENTS.

I HAVE RECENTLY BECOME A

MOM AND

WHAT IT MEANS TO COME HERE

AND GET A

GIFT LIKE WE DO FOR OUR

BABY. THEY

GET TO WRAP IT UP AND PUT IT

UNDER A

TREE SO THAT CHILD NO

DIFFERENT THAN

MY CHILD AND THEY GET TO

CELEBRATE

CHRISTMAS.

AFTER THEY FINISHED, THEY

RECEIVED

A FULL BAG OF GROCERIES.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF

BAGS OF

GROCERIES PREPARED FOR THEM

TO NOT

ONLY GO HOME AND GET A GIFT

BUT ALSO

THEY GET TO PREPARE A NICE

MEAL. FOR

PEOPLE WHO GIVE TO CBN,

CHRISTMAS

ANYTHING AT

CHRISTMAS. THEY ARE GOING BY

THEM AND BRINGING GIFTS TO

THEM AND

ALSO HAVE FELLOWSHIP PRAYER

WITH THEM.

THESE SENIOR PEOPLE ARE SO

APPRECIATIVE.

THEY JUST, THE STORIES ARE

JUST HEART

RENDERING OF WHAT'S

HAPPENING. WE ARE

THRILLED.

THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS.

I'M POINTING OUT, CHRISTMAS

IS REALLY

CELEBRATING THE BIRTH OF

JESUS.

YEAR

AROUND.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

LITTLE GIRL'S

MIRACLE 2 YEARS IN THE

MAKING.

SHE WAS IN PAIN AND SHE

WAS ASKING

ME," MOM, AN -- AM I GOING

TO BE

OKAY? "

PLUS STAY TUNED FOR

THEIR LIVE

PERFORMANCE LATER ON THE

SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO THE "700

CLUB".

A PALESTINIAN GROUP IN

LEBANON FIRED

A BOMB.

CUNTA SERVED 30 YEARS AFTER

COMMITTING ONE OF THE WORST

TERROR

ATTACKS IN ISRAEL.

HE WENT TO LEBANON. IT'S

BELIEVED HE

WORKED FOR IRAN TO WORK ON A

NEW

FRONT AGAINST ISRAEL.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME SINCE

RUSSIAN'S INVOLVEMENT IN THE

SYRIAN

WORLD THAT CARRIED OUT AN

ATTACK

INSIDE SYRIA.

CBN HAD IT'S FIRST EVENT FOR

THE

POLISH COMMUNITY IN ENGLAND.

MANY PEOPLE ATTENDED THE

EVENT AND

WATCHED THE FIRST SHOW THAT

WAS

TRANSLATED INTO POLISH. ONE

PARENT

SAID "SUPERBOOK" IS A

FANTASTIC WAY

TO INTRODUCE THE BIBLE TO

CHILDREN

AND CAN BE APPLIED IN

EVERYDAY

SITUATIONS THAT KIDS FACE IN

THEIR

LIVES. YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE

ABOUT

WHAT CBN IS DOING AROUND THE

WORLD BY

LOGGING ON TO

CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE RIGHT

BACK

AFTER THIS.

Pat: THIS IS THE TIME OF

YEAR WHEN

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE MAKING

EDUCATIONAL DECISIONS AS THE

SEMESTER

IS OVER. REGENT UNIVERSITY

IS DOING

AN EXCITING PROGRAM ON CYBER

SECURITY.

A PROGRAM ABOUT ADVANCED

ACCOUNTING.

IT'S GOING TO BE A PROGRAM

COMING

UPSTARTING PROBABLY NEXT

FALL ON

COSMOLOGY.

THE SECRET OF THE COSMOS,

HOW DO WE

RELATE TO THE WORLD AROUND

US AND

WHAT IS TRUE AND WHAT IS

FALSE.

WHAT ABOUT DARWIN AND ALL OF

THAT.

IT'S GOING TO BE EXCITING.

THERE ARE

AT LEAST, I THINK, 11 OR SO

DOCTORAL

PROGRAMS, 33 MASTERS

PROGRAMS AND A

NUMBER OF UNDERGRADUATE

PROGRAMS.

OVER 100 CONCENTRATIONS.

IT'S JUST

EXCITING WHAT'S HAPPENING.

NOW, THE

DEAL THEY HAVE SET UP A

FLEXIBLE

8-WEEK COURSE TO REACH YOUR

GOAL

FASTER.

THE SCHOLARSHIPS ARE

AVAILABLE ON A

LOT OF AREAS AND NOW IS THE

TIME TO

MAKE A DECISION. IT'S REGENT

UNIVERSITY, 1-800-210-0060.

WWW.REGENT.EDU.

THEY HAVE PUT THIS PROGRAM

THAT IS SO

FABULOUS. YOU WILLEN ENJOY

ONE OF

THEIR SONGS.

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT,

STUDENTS HAVE

GOTTEN A GREAT EDUCATION.

BUT THE CAMPUS WAS MISSING

SOMETHING

AND PAT ASKING TO NAME A

GROUP OF

TALENTED MUSICIANS TO BECOME

REGENT

AMBASSADORS OF THE SCHOOL.

THEY ARE

THE REGENT UNIVERSITY

THEIR MESSAGE OF HOPE. NEXT

ON THE

"700 CLUB".

Pat: YOU ARE WATCHING THE

"700

CLUB". WE ARE DELIGHTED YOU

ARE WITH

US AND GOOD THINGS COMING

DOWN THE

PIKE FOR YOU.

THERE ARE A FEW THINGS IN

LIFE WHEN

WATCHING YOUR CHILD IN

STRUGGLE.

HER CHILD WAS IN TERRIBLE

PAIN AND

COULDN'T DO ANYTHING TO STOP

IT UNTIL

1 DAY HE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM.

SIERRA IVY WAS 3 YEARS

OLD WHEN

HER MOTHER NOTICED BLOOD IN

HER TOOL.

THEN THE OTHER SYMPTOMS

STARTED

WITH NAUSEA AND VOMITING AND

PAIN IN

HER STOMACH.

IT WAS AN ALL DAY THING. SHE

WOULD

COME OUT OF THE BLUE AND SAY

HER

STOMACH WAS HURTING.

IT STUNG.

IT STARTED RIGHT HERE AND

MOVED DOWN.

I TOOK HER TO THE DOCTORS

AND THEY

COULDN'T FIND WHAT WAS WRONG

WITH HER.

IT WAS SCARY.

OVER THE NEXT YEAR HER

SYMPTOMS

WORSENED.

SHE CAME UP WITH MORE

QUESTIONS.

I WOULD HAVE TO SIT WITH

MY

DAUGHTER ON THE COUCH AND

HOLD HER

BECAUSE SHE WAS IN PAIN AND

DIZZY AND

ASKING ME, MOM, AM I GOING

TO BE

OKAY?

IT MADE ME FEEL SAD. I

REALLY

COULDN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT.

I COULDN'T PLAY HARD.

SHE ASKED ME WHY THIS WAS

HAPPENING AND WHAT WAS WRONG

AND I

COULDN'T TELL HER.

WHEN SIERRA WAS FIVE,

DOCTORS

REACH A DIAGNOSIS.

SHE HAD A HIATAL HERNIA.

SURGERY FOR SIERRA WAS

THE LAST

OPTION. I KNEW I NEEDED AN

ANSWER

FROM GOD REAL SOON. I WAS

ASKING GOD

EVERYDAY TO HEAL SIERRA.

WHEN YOU ARE PRAYING, YOU

WANT IT TO

HAPPEN NOW. DOCTORS ARE

GOOD, BUT

THEY ARE NOT GOD.

CHARITY AND HER FAMILY

CONTINUED

TO TRUST GOD FOR SIERRA'S

HEALING.

THEN ON AUGUST 4, 2015.

THEY WERE WATCHING THE "700

CLUB".

WHEN THEY GET READY TO

PRAY, I

ALWAYS CALL, THEY ARE

GETTING READY

TO PRAY.

I GOT ON THE COUCH AND I

HEARD PAT

SAY

SOMEBODY NEEDS HEALING

FROM A

HIATAL HERNIA.

I CLAIMED IT AND SAID GOD

IS

HEALING ME.

THANK YOU.

SOON HER SYMPTOMS

SUBSIDED.

DOCTORS SCHEDULED AN UPPER

GI SCAN

AND TOGETHER THEY WAITED FOR

THE

RESULTS.

I COULDN'T WAIT TO HEAR

WHAT GOD

HAD DONE FOR HER AND THE

DOCTOR

LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, SHE

DOESN'T

HAVE A HIATAL HERNIA.

I LOOKED AT HER AND SAID

PRAISE GOD.

YOU ARE HEALED.

IT WAS JUST LIKE THAT.

I KNEW IT WAS HIM.

IT DOESN'T GO AWAY ON ITS

OWN.

BOTH ARE THANKFUL THEY

FOUND THEIR

HOPE IN GOD.

BACK THEN I COULDN'T

DANCE OR PLAY

HARD.

NOW I CAN DANCE HARD, PLAY

HARD.

GOD GIVES ME HOPE EVERYDAY.

DON'T EVER LOSE HOPE

BECAUSE GOD

IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY

AND

TOMORROW.

NOTHING ON THIS EARTH IS AS

AMAZING

AS HE IS. WE HAVE TO PUT OUR

FAITH IN

HIM. WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR

HIM. IT'S

NOT OUR TIMING.

IT'S HIS.

GOD HAS GIVEN ME HOPE.

FOR GOD SO

LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE

HIS ONLY

BE GOTTEN SON THAT WHOEVER

BELIEVES

IN HIM SHALL NOT PARISH BUT

HAVE AN

EVER LASTING LIFE.

WE HAVE SOME PRAYERS.

WE HAVE THEM HANGING DEALS

FROM A

CHRISTMAS TREE.

THIS IS A 25-YEAR BATTLE

WITH BRAIN

TUMOR.

25 YEARS? THIS IS THE PEACE

FOR

ISRAEL AND FINANCIAL MIRACLE

FOR HER

DAUGHTER WHO IS LOSING HER

HOME.

HERE IS ONE PRAYER ASKING

FOR HER

GRANDDAUGHTER TO BE

DELIVERED FROM

DRUGS AND SOMEONE NEEDS

RESTORATION

FROM A $25,000 SCAM.

Pat: GOOD GRIEF.

LET'S JOIN HANDS.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

SISTER IN

CHRIST. WE HOLD BEFORE YOU

THESE AND

THOUSANDS OF OTHER PRAYERS

COMING

BEFORE YOU RIGHT NOW.

PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE ARE

SAYING,

GOD, HELP ME. YOU ARE GOD,

ALMIGHTY,

YOU CAN DO AMAZING THINGS.

SOMEONE HAS A CRACKED TIBIA

AND GOD

HAS JUST HEALED IT NOW AND

THE PAIN

IS GONE EVEN AS A SPEAK.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE IS HAVING

PROBLEMS

WITH YOUR EYES, GOD IS

HEALING THAT.

AND SOMEONE ELSE HAS A KNEE

POPPING

OUT OF IT'S JOINT.

GOD IS HEALING YOUR

LIGAMENTS AND

TENDONS.

IT WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.

Pat: SOMEONE HAS A STRAIN

IN THEIR

LOWER BACK.

AT THIS MOMENT, YOU ARE

TOTALLY

HEALED.

BREAST CANCER, THIS CANCER

IS

LEAVING. YOU ARE COMPLETELY

HEALED.

IN JESUS NAME, TAKE IT.

SOMEONE WITH POOR EYESIGHT.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, TOUCH.

TERRY, ONE MORE?

Terry: SOMEONE HAS

EXCESSIVE

STOMACH ACID.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Pat: THANK YOU FOR ALL OF

YOUR

GOODNESS, THANK YOU, LORD,

IN THE

NAME OF JESUS, AMEN.

Terry: SOME WITH BRING IT

ON.

SOMEONE SAYS WHY ARE THEY NO

LONGER

SINGING CHRISTIAN HYMNS.

AND CHRISTMAS SONGS?

Terry: WE WANT TO TAKE

TIME TO

BRING IT ON WITH SOME OF THE

E-MAILS.

SOMEONE SAYS, WHY ARE THE

CHURCHES NO

LONGER DOING ANY HYMNS. ALSO

VERY FEW

CHRISTMAS SONGS ARE HEARD

ANYMORE.

MY HEART BREAKS TO CHILDREN

NOT BEING

ABLE TO SING THESE SONGS.

SOMEONE PUT

IN A REQUEST BUT NO ONE

HEARS. I'M

STARTING TO FEEL EMPTY ON

SUNDAY.

Pat: I'M SORRY ABOUT THE

HYMNS. THE

TRUTH IS WE HAVE MOVED ON TO

SOME OF

THESE WORSHIP SONGS.

THE GRAT -- GREAT PSALMS,

CHARLES

WESLEY WROTE THOUSANDS OF

SONGS

SINGING MY GREAT REDEEMER

AND PRAISE

THE GLORY AND THEY ARE

WORSHIPPING

THE PEOPLE OF THE LORD.

THAT JOY, JOY, JOY, I GOT

HIS

PRESENCE IN MY HEART.

BUT THEY HAVE LOST THAT.

YOU SAY HOW COME? I DON'T

RUN THE

CHURCH.

SOME OF THE STUFF THEY CALL

WORSHIP,

IT GOES ON AND ON AND IT

JUST DRIVES

ME CRAZY. THEY GO TO CHURCH

AND SING

AND SING.

IT'S SO DISCOORDINATED AND

IT DOESN'T

SOUND TOGETHER. YOU ARE

SUPPOSED TO

BRING A STRUCTURE AND A

POINT WHERE

YOU COME TO GOD AND A TIME

WHEN YOU

DO SOMETHING. THIS OTHER

WHERE YOU

BRING THEM TO A POINT AND

BACK DOWN

AGAIN. PEOPLE LEADING THIS

WORSHIP

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

TECHNIQUE IN A

SENSE OF WORSHIP THROUGH

SONG. BUT IN

THE OLD DAYS, THEY DID.

OLD THAT WILL BE GLORY FOR

ME. THAT

WAS THE SONG.

HE SANG THE BEAUTIFUL HYMN.

THEY ARE REMARKABLE. THIS

IS

STEVEN WHO SAYS MY

BROTHER-IN-LAW WAS

BORN APRIL 6TH.

SHOULD THE CHURCH CHANGE THE

DATE TO

DECEMBER 26TH TO CELEBRATE

THE PAGAN

CELEBRATION. IS THAT RIGHT?

PROBABLY.

THE SHEPHERDS WERE WATCHING

THE

FLOCKS BY NIGHT.

IN THE DEAD OF WINTER, THEY

PROBABLY

WEREN'T DOING THAT.

IT COULD HAVE BEEN IN APRIL.

IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER.

FRANKLY, I DO THINK THE

CHURCH WANTED

TO CHRISTIANIZED AN EXISTING

FESTIVAL.

THEY PICKED ONE ON THE

WINTER

SOLSTICE.

THEY GO FROM FALL TO WINTER

AND BACK

TO SPRING. THE PERIOD OF

TRANSITION.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WAS

MASTER FULL

IN CHRISTIANIZING PAGAN

FESTIVALS AND

EVENTS PROBABLY SO MUCH THAT

THEY

MADE A MISTAKE. I DON'T KNOW

IF IT'S

APRIL, MAY OR JUNE OR

DECEMBER. IT

DOESN'T MATTER.

HE WAS BORN AND HE LIVES AND

HE'S

ALIVE TODAY.

Terry: SOMEONE SAYS I HAVE

A HARD

TIME WITH PRAYERS. WHY

SHOULD GOD

CARE ABOUT MY NEED TO BE

MORE PATIENT

WITH MY CHILDREN WHEN

CHILDREN ARE

DYING OF STARVATION. I'M

TRYING TO

REVIVE MY RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOD AND

WHY DO MY NEEDS MATTER MORE

THAN

OTHERS?

WELL, YOU ARE A CHILD OF

GOD. I'M

CONCERNED ABOUT MY KIDS. I

KNOW I'M

CONCERNED ABOUT THE KIDS OF

EVERYBODY

ELSE. COME CHRISTMAS, YOU

GIVE

PRESENTS TO YOUR CHILDREN.

IF A MAN DOESN'T LOOK AFTER

HIS OWN.

GOD IS THE SAME. HE LOOKS

AFTER THOSE

THAT ARE HIS AND HE ALSO

CARES ABOUT

THE WHOLE WORLD BUT AT THE

SAME TIME

HE LOVES YOU AND CARES ABOUT

YOU AND

WHAT YOU WANT IMPORTANT TO

HIM. DON'T

DOWNPLAY IT.

IN DEED YOU ARE A

SIGNIFICANT LITTLE

PECK IN THE MIDDLE OF A

GIGANTIC

UNIVERSE.

OUR POWER PRAYER.

"CALL TO ME, AND I WILL

ANSWER YOU,

AND SHOW YOU GREAT AND

MIGHTY THINGS,

WHICH YOU DO NOT KNOW."

JEREMIAH

33:3
