ALMOST EVERYTHING ABOUT

CHRIST WE CAN FIND OUT WITHOUT

GOING TO THE NEW TESTAMENT.

FROM THE BIRTH OF CHRIST TO

HIS RESURRECTION, PROOF OF THE

LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST.

THAT IS WHY IT HAS LASTED

2,000 YEARS.

I KNEW WHO THAT WAS.

A MIRACLE ON CHRISTMAS EVE.

HE EXTENDED HIS HAND OUT TO

ME ASKING FOR MY --

DELIVERED BY JESUS CHRIST

HIMSELF.

JESUS STARTED TO TAKE THOSE

FINGERS AND OPEN THEM UP.

COMING UP ON "THE 700 CLUB."

*

PAT: THEY SAY IT IS FEELING

MORE LIKE CHRISTMAS EXCEPT IT

FEELS MORE LIKE SPRING CLOSING

IN ON 70°.

EAST COAST WARMEST CHRISTMAS

MAYBE ON RECORD.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE RECORDS.

SURE IS WARM.

INCREDIBLE.

SOMETHING IS HEATING UP, TOO,

THOSE TERRORISTS, ISIS

INFILTRATE TODAY UNITED STATES.

NOT JUST THE ISIS SUPPORTERS IN

SAN BERNARDINO.

TERRY: ISIS IS SPREADING ITS

TENTACLES WORLDWIDE.

ERICK STAKELBECK HAS THE

CHILLING STORY.

REPORTER: MORE THAN 250

AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE TRAVEL TO

IRAQ AND RETURNED TO THE U.S.

DIRECTLY FROM THE HOUSE HOMELAND

SECURITY COMMITTEE.

INVESTIGATORS BELIEVE AN

ALARMING AMERICANS MAY WELCOME

THE RECRUITS BACK HOME.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS

SAYS ISIS HAS AN EXTENSIVE

NETWORK FROM COAST TO COAST

INSIDE THE UNITED STATES.

HUSBAND AND WIFE TERROR TEAM

THAT WREAKED HAVOC IN SAN

BERNARDINO COULD BE A TREND.

ISIS RELATED ACTIVITY IN ALL 50

STATES AND RECITING HERE 24

HOURS A DAY.

IN FACT, FBI RESOURCES RUNNING

DOWN 1,000 ISIS CASES RAISING

FEARS THE BUREAU IS BEING

STRETCHED THIN.

STILL PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS SAID

HIS STRATEGY TO DEFEAT ISIS IS

WORKING AND THE TERROR GROUP IS

CONTAINED.

THE FBI KNOWS FULL WELL HOW

SERIOUS THE THREAT IS ON THE

GROUND.

REPORTER: A RECENT REPORT ON

ISIS ACTIVITY IN AMERICAN.

WE WERE GETTING THE SENSE

THAT THE THREAT WAS BEING DOWN

PLAYED FOR POLITICAL REASONS.

THE THREAT IS FAR GREATER IN

THIS COUNTRY WE HAD BEEN LED TO

BELIEVE.

REPORTER: AMERICAN LAW

ENFORCEMENT INTERCEPTED SOME 82

ISIS SUPPORTERS SINCE MARCH 2014

AND ISIS RECRUITING WITHIN THE

U.S. THREE TIMES THE RATE OF

AL-QAEDA.

OUT OF THE 82 CASES, THEY

HAVE BEEN INTERDICTED BY LAW

ENFORCEMENT, ONLY 18 TURNED IN

BY SOMEONE THEY KNEW.

THIS NOTION THAT THE MUSLIM

COMMUNITY IS TRYING TO HELP

PROTECT US AGAINST RADICALISM

RIGHT NOW IS NOT HOLDING TRUE.

REPORTER: ISIS GOAL, RISE UP

AND CARRY OUT REGULAR TERROR

ATTACKS IN U.S. CITIES CREATING

AN ATMOSPHERE OF GORILLA WAR.

NO WONDER CONCERN OVER TERRORISM

IS AS HIGH NOW AS FOLLOWING

9/11.

MAJORITY DO NOT APPROVE OF THE

GOVERNMENT'S HANDLING OF

TERRORISM AND BELIEVE MORE LONE

WOLF JIHADI ATTACKS CANNOT BE

PREVENTED, ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

PAT: PRESIDENT IS SAYING HE

HASN'T GOTTEN THE MESSAGE TO THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THEY HAVEN'T BEEN TOLD THE GREAT

THINGS HE IS DOING, NON SENSE.

I HEARD TODAY MISS PUERTO RICO

WAS FORBIDDEN FROM ENTERING

ANYMORE PAGEANTS BECAUSE SHE

SAID MUSLIMS CAUSE TERROR.

SHE SAID THE JEWS AND CHRISTIANS

DON'T HAVE AS THEIR IDEOLOGY ANY

KIND OF TERROR, MUSLIMS DO.

SHE TOLD THE TRUTH.

SHE HAS BEEN BANNED, 1,000 PAGES

OUT OF THE FBI MANUAL REMOVED BY

ORDER OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

THERE IS A CONCERTED EFFORT IN

WASHINGTON TO MUZZLE PEOPLE TO

TALK ABOUT THE TRUTH, ENEMY AND

WHY THEY ARE COMING AFTER US.

IT IS AMAZING IN THE DAYS OF

WORLD WAR II NO QUESTION WE

IDENTIFIED THE NAZIS, NO

QUESTION WE IDENTIFIED THE

ENEMY, THE FACT THAT OUR NATION

WAS AT WAR WITH GERMANY AND

JAPAN.

NO QUESTION OUR MEN AND WOMEN

WENT TO WAR AND FOUGHT AND BLED

AND DIED BUT AT THE HOME FRONT

NO QUESTION WHO OUR ENEMY WAS.

NOW OUR LEADERS WILL NOT ALLOW

US TO IDENTIFY WHO THE ENEMY IS.

THAT IS THE THING THAT IS SO

RIDICULOUS, POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS SO HORRIBLE.

NOT JUSTICIST WE HAE ISISE I ISIS WE HAVETO WORRY

ABOUT, TALIBAN JUST UNLEASHED

NEW TERROR AGAINST THE AMERICAN

GROUPS.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS MORE FROM THE

CBN NEWS ROOM.

WENDY: THAT'S RIGHT, PAT.

TALIBAN SURGING IN AFGHANISTAN

CLAIMING RESPONSE BLTD FOR THE

SUICIDE ATTACK THAT KILLED SIX

AMERICAN SOLDIERS MONDAY,

DEADLIEST AFGHAN ATTACK INTO

2012.

TALIBAN CONTINUES TO TAKE BACK

NEW TERRITORY.

TERRORIST GROUP SEIZED DISTRICT

IN HELLMAN PROJECT AND FIERCE

BATTLES ONGOING IN THAT AREA.

DURING A VISIT LAST WEEK,

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE ASH CARTER

ADMITTED THINGS ARE NOT GOING

WELL.

TALIBAN'S ADVANCES IN SOME

PARTS OF THE COUNTRY UNDERSCORE

THIS IS A TOUGH FIGHT.

FAR FROM OVER.

WENDY: IN THE YEAR SINCE THE

INTERNATIONAL DRAW DOWN, THE

TALIBAN HAS INTENSIFIED.

PRESIDENT OBAMA BLAMES -- OBAMA

IMPLIES AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW,

MEDIA IS PLAYING INTO THE HANDS

OF ISIS BY PUBLICIZING THEIR

ATROCITY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: MEDIA IS

PURSUING RATINGS.

THIS IS A LEGITIMATE NEWS STORY.

I THINK THAT IT IS UP TO THE

MEDIA TO MAKE A DETERMINATION

HOW THEY WANT TO RECOVER THINGS.

NO DOUBT ACTIONS OF ISIL ARE

DESIGNED AMPLIFY THEIR POWER

THEY POSE.

WENDY: PRESIDENT SAYS ISIS

COMMITS OUTRAGEOUS ACTS BECAUSE

IT HELPS TO RECRUIT.

AND ADMINISTRATION PARTLY TO

BLAME FOR AMERICAN PERCEPTIONS

ABOUT ISIS BECAUSE THEY

COMMUNICATED POORLY ABOUT THEIR

SUCCESS IN FIGHTING TERROR

GROUP.

> U.S. POWER GRID HACKED.

NEW ASSOCIATED PRESS

INVESTIGATION FOUND

SOPHISTICATED HACKERS HAVE

ACCESS TO STRIKE AT ANY MOMENT

THEY CHOOSE.

KATELCAITLIN BURKE HAS THE STORY.

CAITLIN: PROTECTED 24/7 ON

THE OUTSIDE AND ON THE INSIDE

AGAINST CYBER ATTACKS, NETWORKS

RUNNING THE POWER GRID REMAIN

VULNERABLE.

IT IS NOT SECURE.

CAITLIN: NATION'S POWER GRID

NEVER BUILT WITH NET WORK

SECURITY IN MIND.

IT IS OLD AND OUTDATED.

NEARLY A DOZEN TIMES FOREIGN

HACKERS HAVE GAINED ACCESS TO

THE NETWORKS THAT RUN THE GRID

OVER THE LAST DECADE.

PEOPLE SCANNING TO SEE WHAT

OPENINGS THEY CAN FIND.

CAITLIN: SOME OF THE HACKS

ARE BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN

CARRIED OUT BY HACKING TEAMS

FROM RUSSIA, CHINA AND IRAN.

NOW ISIS IS TRYING TO HACK

COMPANY POWER COMPANIES.

WE ARE NOT WHERE WE NEED TO

BE AND VERY, VERY FOCUSSED ON

GETTING TO WHERE WE NEED TO BE.

CAITLIN: SO FAR INTRUSIONS

HAVEN'T CAUSED THE CATASTROPHIC

BLACKOUT EXPERTS FEAR.

IT IS BELIEVED MANY CYBER

ATTACKERS HAVE THE INFORMATION

THEY NEED TO DO JUST THIS GIVING

THEM THE CAPABILITY TO STRIKE AT

WILL.

IT IS ALL REAL, LOTS OF

VARIABILITIES THAT COULD HAPPEN.

CAITLIN: DEPARTMENT OF

HOMELAND SECURITY PUBLIC AND

PRIVATE COOPERATION IS THE KEY

TO FIGHTING CYBER ATTACKS.

AGENCY COORDINATING EFFORTS AND

RAISING AWARENESS ABOUT EVOLVING

THREATS.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

PAT: VERY EXCELLENT REPORT.

THEY HAVE TREMENDOUS GRIDS ON

THE WEST COAST.

THOSE ARE VULNERABLE.

SO ARE ALL OF THE GRIDS ACROSS

THE NATION.

AS I SAID, CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT

WOULD HAPPEN IF THE COMMANDING

CONTROL STRUCTURE WAS HACKED BY

CYBER TERRORISTS AND SUDDENLY

OUR MILITARY COULDN'T COORDINATE

WITH EACH OTHER.

COULDN'T TALK TO THE SUBMARINES

DEEP UNDER THE OCEANS, COULDN'T

TALK TO AIRPLANES IN THE AIR.

WE COULDN'T COORDINATE MOVEMENTS

OF TROOPS.

AGAIN IF THE FOOD DISTRIBUTION,

ALL DEPENDENT ON COMPUTERS.

NOW, YOU KNOW AT CHRISTMAS, WE

BUY THROUGH COMPUTERS, WE DON'T

TALK TO PEOPLE.

WE GO ONLINE AND PUT IN AN ORDER

AND HOPE SOME MACHINE HEARD IT

AND FULFILLS IT.

SO IF THAT BEGINS TO BE HACK,

FOOD DOESN'T MOVE, VEGETABLES

ROT, TRUCKS DON'T ROLL, GAS

STATIONS CAN'T PUMP GAS.

IT IS A HIDEOUS NIGHTMARE.

IT IS TIME WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT

IT.

I COMMEND THOSE UTILITIES WHICH

ARE BUYING EXTRA TRANSFORMERS,

EXTRA EQUIPMENT SO IF SOMETHING

BLOWS, SOMETHING GOES OUT OF

LINE THEY CAN PUT IT BACK ON

LINE QUICKLY IN THE SO-CALLED

ELECTRONIC BURST EMP STRIKE

COULD DEVASTATE JUST ONE NUCLEAR

BOMB EXPLODED IN THE AIR OVER

THE EAST COAST OF AMERICA WOULD

CRIPPLE OUR INFRASTRUCTURE.

NICE TO LIVE IN A FREE SOCIETY,

I AM GRATEFUL.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE ARE

TERRIBLY, TERRIBLY VULNERABLE

WITH THE KIND OF STUFF GOING ON

IN OUR WORLD.

WE NEED TO GET PEOPLE IN

WASHINGTON WHO ARE ALERT TO IT

AND AWARE OF IT WE HAVE GOT IN

THE NEWS, LINDSEY GRAHAM,

ADVOCATE FOR A STRONG ROBUST

MILITARY.

HE DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE

BECAUSE HIS MESSAGE WASN'T

CATCHING HOLD.

SOMETHING NEEDS TO CATCH HOLD.

WENDY: PAT, AN ANTIACTIVIST

IS FORCING MEMBERS OF THE

FOOTBALL TEAM TO STOP PRAYING

PUBLICALLY AT GAMES.

MIKEY WINESTEIN CALLING ON

ACADEMY LEADERS TO PUT AN END TO

THE CADET'S PRAYERS.

HIS LETTER CALLED IT A PUTRID

EXAMPLE OF FUNDAMENTALIST

SUPREMACY.

AIR FORCE CADETS DON'T SURRENDER

THEIR RIGHT TO PRAY.

ACADEMY IS NOW LOOKING INTO THIS

ISSUE.

PAT, THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS.

PAT: WE HAVE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT THIS MIKEY WINESTEIN, ONE

GUY HAS SHUT DOWN THE RELIGION

OF THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY.

ONE RADICAL.

NOW HE CALLS PRAYERS STINKING

PUTRID, WHATEVER HE CALLS THEM.

WHAT AN AWFUL PERSON HE IS.

IT IS TIME FOR THE AIR FORCE TO

STAND UP AND SAY IF YOU ARE

GOING TO DEFEND OUR NATION AND

KEEP US SAFE, HOW ABOUT YOU GET

SAFE FROM ONE JEWISH RADICAL.

THAT IS WHAT HE IS.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT HIS BELIEF

SYSTEM IS.

HE IS AN ATHEIST OF SOME KIND.

MICKY WINESTEIN KYOU BELIEVE

THAT?

CALL ON THE AIR FORCE TO MAN UP!

WENDY?

WENDY: PAT YOU MENTIONED THIS

AT THE TOP OF THE SHOW, FOLKS

HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE MIX UP AT

THE MISS UNIVERSE CONTEST, WRONG

WOMAN CROWNED.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENED TO MISS PUERTO

RICO.

SHE WAS SUSPENDED FOR POSTING

COMMENTS OF ISLAM.

STARTED WHEN FILM MAKER MICHAEL

MOORE, EVERYONE SHOULD POST

SIGNS THAT SAY WE ARE ALL

MUSLIM.

DESTINY DIDN'T LIKE THAT.

THERE IS NO COMPARISON BETWEEN

JEWS, CHRISTIAN, OR MUSLIMS,

JEWS OR CHRISTIANS HAVE

TERRORIZING -- THE MISS PUERTO

RICO ORGANIZATION STILL

SUSPENDED HERE.

> MORE THAN ONE MILLION

MIGRANTS ENTERED EUROPE IN 2014

FOUR TIMES AS MANY AS LAST YEAR.

NO SIGNS OF ENDING ANY TIME

SOON.

OPERATION BLESSING ON THE GROUND

IN GREECE WORKING TO HELP THOSE

FLEEING THE VIOLENCE IN THE

MIDEAST.

OUR DAVID DARG HAS THE LATEST.

REPORTER: REFUGEES PACKED

INTO SMALL BOATS RISKING

EVERYTHING TO MAKE IT TO EUROPE.

THEY ARRIVE TIRED AND COLD AND

WITH FEW BELONGINGS.

THEY ARE RELIEVED BECAUSE THEY

FLED FROM WAR AND INSTABILITY.

EUROPE WILL OFFER THEM A NEW

LIECH LIFE.

THIS MOTHER AND NINE-MONTH-OLD

BABY FLED AND ARRIVED HERE ON A

SMALL BOAT CONTAINING OVER 40

PEOPLE.

THESE REFUGEES ARE SOME OF

THOUSANDS THAT CONTINUE TO

ARRIVE HERE.

THEY COME ON BOATS PACKED WITH

MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN,

OPERATION BLESSING HERE PROVIDED

MUCH NEEDED AID.

REFUGEES TAKEN TO CAMPS

REGISTERED AND PREPARED FOR

THEIR JOURNEY ONWARD.

OPERATION BLESSING IS HELPING TO

PROVIDE NUTRITIOUS MEALS FOR

REFUGEE FAMILIES.

FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES AND

WARM FOOD SERVED.

THIS IS THE FIRST PROPER MEAL IN

WEEKS.

NGS IN ADDITION TO FOOD,

OPERATION BLESSING IS PROVIDING

LIGHTS.

THEIR JOURNEY DEEPER WILL MEAN

SLEEPING ROUGH.

THESE LIGHTS PROVIDE SAFETY AND

COMFORT TO REFUGEES.

OPERATION BLESSING IS SUPPING

THEIR EFFORTS TO DISTRIBUTE

SOLAR LIGHTS TO REV J REFUGEES.

GOT SO EXCITED.

LIGHT BRINGS JOY AND HAPPINESS.

ONLY THING I HAVE SEEN LIGHT UP

THEIR FACES.

A NEW DAY BRINGS NEW ARRIVALS

TO GREECE.

THIS SHOWS NO SIGN OF ENDING.

OPERATION BLESSING CONTINUES TO

SERVE THOUSANDS IN EUROPE AND

MIDDLE EAST.

WENDY: SO NICE TO KNOW

OPERATION BLESSING IS THERE

HELPING THOSE REALLY BEAUTIFUL

PEOPLE THAT NEED HELP.

PAT: OPERATION BLESSING DAVID

DARG IS ON THE BEACH TAKING

PICTURES.

YOU KNOW, FOLKS, AS I LISTEN TO

ALL THIS, OPERATION BLESSING IS

DOING AN AWFUL LOT.

I WANT YOU AT CHRISTMAS TIME TO

KNOW YOU CAN DO SOMETHING,

OPERATION BLESSING

1-800-759-0700.

YOU CAN HELP.

WE ARE HELPING PEOPLE ALL AROUND

THE WORLD.

TERRY, AS I LISTEN TO THIS

LITTLE MICROCOSM OF THE WORLD,

WE HAVE A MASSIVE CRISIS, UNITED

STATES ON THE HOOK FOR ALMOST 20

TRILLION DOLLARS AND WHO KNOWS

HOW MANY TRILLIONS MORE OF

UNFUNDED LIABILITIES.

EUROPEAN UNION OVERRUN.

MIDDLE EAST IS A CAULDRON OF

CHAOS AND FIGHTING.

LIBYA IS A STRONG HOLD NOW,

BREEDING GROUND OF TERRORISTS.

AFGHANISTAN GOING TO PIECES.

IRAQ IS NOT STABLE ANYMORE.

SUNNIS AND SHIITES ARE FIGHTING

EACH OTHER.

IT IS LIKE A DISEASE SETTLED ON

THE WORLD.

TERRY: IT IS REALLY TRUE.

WHEN WE SAID ONE OF THE REPORTS

WAS CHILLING, I THINK THIS IS

CHILLING TO PEOPLE.

THERE DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE AN

OUT.

PAT: I BELIEVE WE ARE COMING

TO A TIME WHEN THE WORLD IS

CRYING OUT FOR A STRONG MAN.

THAT OF COURSE IS WHAT THE BIBLE

TALKS ABOUT ANTICHRIST COMING ON

THE SCENE.

MUSLIMS LOOKING FOR RETURN OF

THE MAHDI.

THEY WANT CHAOS BEFORE THE MAHDI

COMES.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I BELIEVE

THE TIMES WE ARE IN ARE VERY

PROPHETIC.

SEEMS AS IF GOD ALL MIGHTY MUST

TAKE CONTROL OF THIS WORLD

SPINNING OUT OF CONTROL.

THE TROUBLE IS IRANIANS ARE

GOING TO HAVE NUCLEAR BOMBS AND

HAVE TEST FIRED THEM.

DELIVER SYSTEMS TO PUT THEM INTO

NORTH PLACES.

NORTH KOREANS CLAIM THEY HAVE

THE HBOMB.

WHEN THESE CRAZY REGIMES GET

CONTROL OF THE MEANS OF MASS

DESTRUCTION THEY CAN OBLITERATE

A WHOLE CIVILIZATION.

IT IS DANGEROUS STUFF.

WE ARE A WORLD THAT NEEDS

REVIVAL IN THE MOST DESPERATE

SORT OF WAY.

GOD ALL MIGHTY HAS TO TAKE

CONTROL OR ELSE.

OR ELSE.

SO WE CRY OUT AS THE BIBLE SAYS,

YOU KNOW, EVEN SO COME LORD

JESUS, WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE

CELEBRATION OF THE COMING OF

JESUS.

BIBLE SAYS ONE TO HEAVEN WILL

RETURN IN LIKE MANNERS.

WE MUST CRY OUT FOR THE RETURN

OF OUR SAVIOR.

WE ASK GOD TO TAKE CONTROL OF

THIS WORLD.

WHERE I SEE IT, IT AIN'T GETTING

ANY BETTER, TERRY.

TERRY: IN THE MIDST OF THE

CHAOS, THERE IS LIGHT AND TRUTH,

UP NEXT A LOOK AT THE TRUTH AND

ACCURACY OF THE BIBLE.

ARCHAEOLOGY HAS CLEARED UP

ALREADY OVER HALF OF ALL WHAT

APPEARED TO BE ALLEGED

DISCREPANCIES.

PAT: JOSH MCDOWELL AND TWO

OTHER EXPERTS TALK ABOUT

BELIEVING IN CHRIST AFTER THIS.

PAT: YOU ARE WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB" THIS TIME OF THE YEAR

CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE CELEBRATE

THE MIRACLE OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH.

GROWING SECULAR SOCIETY MORE AND

MORE AMERICANS DENY SUCH

MIRACLES.

THEY QUESTION THE ACCURACY OF

THE BIBLE.

PAUL STRAND TALKED ABOUT TO

THREE EXPERTS WITH EVIDENCE THAT

THE BELIEVERS RATHER THAN THE

SCOFFERS HAVE IT RIGHT.

THESE DAYS MANY CHRISTIANS

ESPECIALLY COLLEGE AGE STUDENTS

FIND THEIR FAITH IN GOT

QUESTIONED IF NOT DOWN RIGHT

ASSAULTED.

THEY HAVE A PROFESSOR THAT

WILL CHALLENGE WHAT YOU BELIEVE.

NOT SO ACCORDING TO THREE OF

THE WORLD'S TOP EXPERTS WHO SAID

THERE IS GOOD REASON TO HAVE

FAITH IN YOUR FAITH.

FAITH IS VERY, VERY

DEFENDABLE.

THAT IS WHY IT HAS LASTED 2,000

YEARS.

SIXTEEN TOTAL HISTORIANS THAT

REFERENCE CHRIST.

WE CAN FIND OUT WITHOUT GOING TO

THE NEW TESTAMENT.

SURVIVING MANUSCRIPTS

PRODUCED HUNDREDS AFTER THE

ORIGINAL WRITINGS.

JONATHAN MOREL SAYS MORE

EVIDENCE JESUS LIVED THAN JULIUS

CAESAR NO ONE DOUBTED HE LIVED.

PETER, JOHN AND JAMES LIVED WITH

JESUS.

JOHN SAID WHAT OUR EYES HAVE

SEEN, OUR EARS HAVE HEARD, HANDS

HANDLED IS WHAT WE ARE

DECLARING.

WE WERE EYEWITNESSES.

WE WERE THERE.

PAUL AND LUKE INTERVIEWED

THEM AND NEW OTHERS THAT

WITNESSED JESUS' LIFE, DEATH AND

RESURRECTION.

GOSPEL WRITERS GIVE YOU BOTH,

INVESTIGATED EVERYTHING

CAREFULLY, RING OF TRUTH.

INCLUDE EMBARRASSING DETAILS.

THEY FIND THE CLOSER THE

MANUSCRIPT TO THE ORIGINAL LESS

CHANCE OF ERROR.

MCDOWELL SAID NO COPIES

EXIST.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT GREEK AND

ROMAN, HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER,

700 YEARS AFTER THE FACT.

BIBLE MANUSCRIPTS CLOSER TO

THE ORIGINAL WORK THAN OTHER.

WE HAVE BIBLE MANUSCRIPTS,

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR

ERROR IN MYTHOLOGY TO CORRUPT

THE MESSAGE.

SECOND, MORE MANUSCRIPTS YOU

HAVE EASIER TO RECONSTRUCT THE

ORIGINAL.

66,420, SOME MANUSCRIPTS AND

SCROLLS.

WE TRUST HOMER, HOW MUCH MORE

SHOULD WE TRUST THE NEW

TESTAMENT DOCUMENTS.

NO SURPRISE THERE ARE

OCCASIONAL ERRORS.

99% EVAPORATE SIMPLE SPELLING

ERRORS.

NONE EFFECT ANY CENTRAL TEACHING

OF CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE OR

PRACTICE.

MANY OF THE SO-CALLED

CONTRADICTIONS ARE DIFFERENT

WAYS OF TELLING THE SAME STORY.

DIFFERENCE DOESN'T EQUAL

CONTRADICTI

CONTRADICTION, IT IS JUST

DIFFERENCE.

MCDOWELL EXPLAINS FOR JEWISH

SCRIBES, COPYING GENESIS AND

EXODUS HOLY WORK AND STRICTLY

CONTROLLED.

4,000 REGULATIONS TO

GUARANTEE ACCURACY.

MONKS HAD TIGHT RULES FOR

COPYING AS WELL.

ANOTHER REASON TO TRUST THE

BIBLE, ARCHAEOLOGY SHOWN BIBLE

IS TRUE AND SKEPTICS WRONG.

ARCHAEOLOGY CLEARED UP HALF

OF ALL WHAT APPEARED TO BE

ALLEGED DISCREPANCIES IN THE

SCRIPTURES.

SKEPTICS WOULD SAY NO RECORD

OF NAZARETH AND NEW TESTAMENT

CAN'T BE TRUTH.

SHOWS BOTH EXISTS.

NOW YOU CAN GO TO HARVARD AND

STUDY THE HITITE LANGUAGE.

APOSTLES KEPT SAYING YOU KNOW

WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.

YOU WERE THERE.

THAT IS A CRAZY THING TO DO

IF YOU ARE MAKING THE WHOLE

THING UP.

THE FACTS AT WHICH THEY

TALKED ABOUT ABOUT.

TO ME THE BEST TEST OF TRUTH.

THEY ALMOST ALL WERE MARTYRED

FOR IT.

YOU DON'T DIE KNOWINGLY FOR

SOMETHING YOU MADE UP.

PAT: GREAT PIECE.

PAUL HAS MORE INCLUDING HOW

MODERN ARCHAEOLOGY IS ANSWERING

QUESTIONS FROM SCRIPTURE THAT

HAVE FUELLED BIBLE DOUBTERS FOR

CENTURIES.

PAT: CAMPBELLS DECIDED TO DO

SOMETHING SPECIAL TO CELEBRATE

THEIR 25TH ANNIVERSARY, THEY

ORLANDO, FLORIDA.

TAKE A LOOK.

IT IS A LITTLE PATCH OF

HEAVEN RIGHT IN THE HEART OF

JESUS IS REAL.

TRINITY BROADCASTING

NETWORK'S HOLY EXPERIENCE BRINGS

BIBLE TO LIFE THROUGH SIGHT AND

SOUND.

YEAR ROUND PEOPLE COME TO GET A

GLIMPSE OF JERUSALEM MORE THAN

2,000 YEARS AGO.

TO MAKE THE TRUTH IN THE WORD

SPRING OFF THE PAGE AND INTO

YOUR HEART.

AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, BIRTH

OF CHRIST TAKES CENTER STAGE.

PRESENTATIONS ALL HAVE A

CHRISTMAS TWIST.

PEOPLE ARE ESPECIALLY

INSPIRED BY THE NATIVITY SCENES.

THIS FAMILY CAME FROM NEW

JERSEY.

IT IS GOOD ABOUT PRESENTS BUT

ALSO REMEMBER WHO JESUS IS.

HE CAME TO FREE US OF OUR SINS.

THAT IS THE GREATEST GIFT YOU

COULD EVER RECEIVE.

SHE IS NOT ALONE.

IT IS A GREAT TIME FOR ME.

IT IS REMINDING ME OF EVERYTHING

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR WENT THROUGH

FOR US.

TOM AND DIANE CAMPBELL

CELEBRATE THEIR 25TH WEDDING

ANNIVERSARY.

SEEING THIS PUT THINGS IN

PERSPECTIVE.

CHRISTMAS IS NOT ABOUT TOYS

OR GIVING BUT THE SPIRIT OF

CHRIST.

MELISSA VASQUEZ IS ONE OF THE

PERFORMERS AND IT IS ALL WORTH

IT.

IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW

THE GROUPS GATHER IN THE

COURTYARD AND PRAY.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE PEOPLE

UNITE AND REMEMBER WHAT IS

IMPORTANT.

*

FOR THE STAFF OF HOLY LAND

EXPERIENCE, WHAT IS IMPORTANT AT

CHRISTMAS AND YEAR ROUND, PEOPLE

SEE THE LIGHT OF CHRIST.

WE HOPE THEY'LL TAKE AWAY

WITH THEM A RENEWAL OF THEIR

FAITH AND COMMITMENT TO GOD.

IT IS A SPECIAL TIME IN MY

HEART.

IT HELPS ME TO REMEMBER THAT

DESPITE EVERYTHING, DESPITE ALL

THE THINGS I MAY DO THAT GOD

SAID I AM COMING FOR YOU.

THIS IS MY GIFT TO YOU.

TERRY: MAGNIFICENT, I HAVE

NEVER BEEN THERE, HAVE YOU?

PAT: NO I HAVEN'T.

I CONGRATULATE THEM.

THAT IS A MAGNIFICENT THING.

TERRY: WONDERFUL WAY TO

CELEBRATE AT THE HOLIDAY.

TIME TO BRING IT ON WITH E-MAIL

QUESTIONS READY?

FIRST ONE COMES FROM MARYLAND:

RECENTLY PAT SAID NIV IS BEST

VERSION OF THE BIBLE.

LATER I LEARNED 1984 AND NEWER

FROM 2011, WHAT SHOULD I LOOK

FOR?

PAT: NEW ONE.

THEY DO ADVANCED SCHOLARSHIP.

IT IS DONE BY EVANGELICAL

SCHOLARS.

MORE AND MORE THEY COME UP -- WE

SHOWED JOSH MCDOWELL TALKING

ABOUT THE FRAGMENTS.

WE HAVE FRAGMENTS.

THEY GO BACK CLOSER AND CLOSER

TO THE AUTOGRAPHS.

WE DON'T HAVE WHAT ARE CALLED

THE AUTOGRAPHS.

IN TERMS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT,

ARCHAEOLOGY COMES UP WITH NEW

STUFF.

NIV ATTEMPTED TO INCORPORATE

THAT.

EXCELLENT TRANSLATION.

PAT: ANGELA: DEAR PAT, I AM

50 YEARS OLD AND SICK OF

BACKSLIDING.

I WANT TO DRAW NEAR TO GOD, I

SMOKE SECRETS AND WEED.

I DON'T WANT ME OR MY SON TO GO

TO HELL HOW DO I GET CLOSER TO

HIM AND STOP BACKSLIDING.

PAT: LADY CAME TO BILLY'S SON

AND HOW CAN I STOP EXAGGERATING

HE SAID CALL IT LYING.

YOU SAY HOW CAN I STOP?

STOP THE STINKING STUFF.

YOU ARE SMOKING SECRETS AND FEEL

GUILTY AND SMOKING MARIJUANA

STOP!

YOU ASKED ME HOW DO I GET CLOSER

TO GOD, YOU HAVE A SIN.

THE SIN IS KEEPING YOU FROM GOD.

BIBLE SAID IF I REGARD SIN IN MY

HEART, GOD IS GREATER THAN MY

HEART.

YOU ARE CONDEMNING YOURSELF AND

THEREFORE, YOU ARE CUTTING

YOURSELF OFF FROM GOD.

GOD WANTS YOU TO HAVE A CLEAR

CONSCIENCE TO SERVE HIM.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO SEND YOU TO

HELL.

IDEA OF GOD RUBBING HIS HANDS

WAITING TO DROP A FEW MORE INTO

HELL IS WRONG.

HE WANTS TO FILL UP HEAVEN WITH

JOYOUS PEOPLE.

HE WANTS TO DO EVERYTHING HE CAN

TO GET YOU TO HEAVEN.

HE'LL HELP YOU, ASK FOR HIS

HELP.

LOOK, HOW DO YOU GET RID OF A

HABIT?

21 DAYS, DON'T DO IT FOR 21 DAYS

YOU'LL STOP.

I USED SMOKE TWO PACKS OF

SECRETS WHILE I WAS IN LAW

SCHOOL.

I REALIZED IT WAS GOING TO CAUSE

CANCER.

I PUT IT DOWN, GROUND IT UP.

NEVER HAD A SECRET SENSE.

I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO GIVE ME

CANCER.

FIRST FEW DAYS TOUGH.

AFTER THREE WEEKS OR SO, I GOT

SO THE SMELL OF SECRETS, I

COULDN'T STAND THEM.

I COULDN'T STAND SECRET BUTTS.

THEY ARE REVOLTING TO ME.

INSTEAD OF BEING A DESIRABLE

THING IT REVERSED, 21 DAYS, SIR,

MADAME.

TERRY: DAVID: WHAT AGE DO

YOU THINK JESUS NEW HE CAME TO

DIE FOR OUR SINS?

WHAT A HEAVY BURDEN TO CARRY

THROUGH HIS EARLY CHILDHOOD.

HURTS ME TO THINK HE KNEW THIS

DURING HIS EARLY YEARS.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS.

PAT: HIS MOTHER SAID A SPIRIT

WILL PIERCE YOUR HEART.

THEY KNEW ABOUT THE TRAGEDY

EARLY ON.

AT 12 HE SAID I MUST BE ABOUT MY

FATHER'S BUSINESS HE WAS

DEBATING WITH THE ELDERS.

HE NUCLEARLY HE HAD BEEN

DESTINED TO DIE FOR OUR SINS.

WAS IT AT 12?

WAS IT AT 13, 30?

I DON'T KNOW.

THE BIBLE DOESN'T TELL US.

HE WAS CONSCIOUS OF HIS DIVINITY

BY THE TIME HE WAS 12 YEARS OLD.

TERRY: ROLLAND: DEAR PAT,

GENESIS 6, SONS OF GOD WENT INTO

THE DAUGHTER'S OF MEN AND GIANTS

BORN.

I HAVE HEARD PASTORS SAY FALLEN

ANGEL.

PAT: I THINK THEY TOOK ON THE

BODIES OF HUMAN BEINGS.

DEMONS WANT TO POSSESS HUMAN

BEINGS SO YOU'LL HAVE HUMAN

EXPERIENCES PERHAPS THESE ARE

DEMONIC BEINGS WHO INHABITED

HUMAN BEINGS AND BRED OFFSPRING,

I DON'T KNOW.

THE BIBLE DOESN'T GIVE US A ROAD

MAP.

CLEARLY THEY WERE FALLEN ANGELS

WHO CAME TO EARTH AND BEYOND

THAT I CAN'T ELABORATE I DON'T

KNOW.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR QUESTIONS, WE THANK

YOU VERY THOUGHT PROVOKING, WE

ENJOY HEARING FROM THEM, STILL

WHEELCHAIR FOR 18 YEARS WALKS ON

CHRISTMAS EVE.

IN 2002, DEBBIE WALKER WAS A

SINGLE MOM WITH TWO KIDS.

DEBBIE HAD NO HOME.

SHE HAD NO JOB.

TODAY SHE HAS HER OWN HOME AND

HER OWN BUSINESS!

SHE IS COMPLETELY DEBT FREE AND

HERE IS HOW DEBBIE DID IT.

DEBBIE WALKER IS A SEAMSTRESS

WHO RUNS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS

OUT OF HER HOME.

SHE BUILT IT ON WORD OF MOUTH

AND GIVING FAITHFULLY.

SHE STARTED HER BUSINESS OUT OF

NECESSITY LEAVING AN ABUSIVE

RELATIONSHIP.

SHE WAS A SINGLE MOM OF TWO

YOUNG SONS.

I LITERALLY TOOK NOTHING.

THEY MOVED IN WITH THEIR

MOTHER AND USE HER SKILLS AS A

SEAMSTRESS AS A LIVING.

BUILDING A BUSINESS TAKES TIME

AND STRUGGLED.

BECAUSE IT IS SO HARD TO

REALIZE YOU ARE IN THAT

DESPERATE OF SITUATION.

DEBBIE BECAME A KRG AND GO

PROVIDES THROUGH OUR GIVING.

I STARTED READING ABOUT

FINANCES.

AT THAT POINT WHEN MY FINANCES

WERE STILL LIVING PAYCHECK TO

PAYCHECK, I NEEDED MORE THEN

THAT.

SO OKAY, I AM GOING TO TRY THIS

TITHING THING.

SHE STARTED WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I STARTED GIVING TO CBN.

I LOVE THE OPERATION BLESSING

MINISTRY BLESSING, I WAS IN

THOSE ISSUES, OVERNIGHT YOU LOSE

EVERYTHING.

I COULD HAVE BEEN HOMELESS ON

THE STREET IF I DIDN'T HAVE MY

MOM'S HOME.

SHE WAS LANDING MORE CLIENTS,

EVENTUALLY HER INCOME MORE THAN

DOUBLED AND ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR

HER BOYS.

I HAVE NO CREDIT CARDS.

MY CAR PAID OFF IN THREE YEARS

INSTEAD OF FOUR.

I HAVE NO, NO DEBT WHATSOEVER.

I CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND

SOMETIMES.

I AM THROWING MY MEAGER 10% IN

THE BASKET AND THOUSANDS OF

DOLLARS ROLL.

I LOVE THE SCRIPTURE IN THE

BIBLE THAT SAYS TEST ME.

JUST TEST ME.

ONCE YOU DO, YOU JUST GOT TO TRY

IT.

ONCE YOU TEST HIM, YOU WILL

NEVER GO BACK.

HE GIVES YOU SO MUCH MORE BACK

THAN YOU GIVE HIM.

PAT: WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY.

LISTEN, GOD IS FAITHFUL.

HE SAID PROVE ME.

ONLY TIME I KNOW IN THE BIBLE

WHERE IT IS ALMOST LIKE TEMPTING

GOD, IT IS NOT TEMPTING, HE SAYS

YOU DO ONE STEP OF OBEDIENCE

WATCH WHAT I DO.

DO WHAT I TELL YOU, GOD IS NO

LIAR.

HE WILL BE NOBODY'S DEBTOR.

HE SAYS TO HIS PEOPLE, PROVE ME

WITH TITHES AND OFFERINGS IF I

WANT TO OPEN UP THE WINDOWS OF

HEAVEN.

THAT IS THE WAY HE WORKS.

WE LIVE IN A TIME OF BLESSING.

DEBBIE WAS NO STRANGER TO

BLESSING.

SHE WAS IN TROUBLE.

GOD HEARD HER PRAYER.

MATCHED HER OBEDIENCE.

I HAVE SOMETHING I WANT TO GIVE

YOU, CALLED TRANSFORMING WORD,

VERSES TO OVERCOME FEAR AND

EXPERIENCE PEACE.

WE'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU AS OUR

GIFT WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS JUST $.65 A DAY.

THIS MIGHT BE A TIME TO SIT DOWN

AND FIGURE IF YOU GIVE BEFORE

THE 31ST, THERE IS A TAX

BENEFIT, YOU CAN DEDUCT THINGS

FROM YOUR INCOME.

THAT IS NOT A BAD THING.

CALL IN RIGHT NOW, THIS IS A

TIME TO MAKE SERIOUS ANALYSIS OF

TERRY?

TERRY: UP NEXT, SHE WAS ONCE

KNOWN AS THE CROOKED LADY WITH

THE BROKEN BODY.

I HADN'T SEEN MOM OUT OF A

WHEELCHAIR SINCE MY WEDDING IN

1993.

IT WAS A SURREAL MOMENT SEEING

HER WALK.

IT IS A MIRACLE.

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE IT COULD

BE.

TERRY: MEET THE WOMAN NOW

KNOWN AS THE LADY WITH THE

CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.

HEAR HOW SHE WAS HEALED ON

CHRISTMAS EVE.

PLUS WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU AND

YOUR NEEDS, DON'T GO AWAY.

TERRY: AFTER AN ACCIDENT,

EMMA WAS CONFINED TO A

WHEELCHAIR, 24/7.

SHE SUFFERED CHRONIC PAIN.

FOR 18 YEARS, EMMA NEVER GAVE UP

HOPE SHE WOULD BE HEALED AND

NEVER STOPPED PRAYING.

FOUR YEAR AGO ON CHRISTMAS EVE

SHE RECEIVED A MIRACLE FROM THE

HAND OF JESUS HIMSELF.

EASTER WEEKEND, 1993, EMMA

MCKINLY LOST HER BALANCE AND

FELL FROM A STORAGE LOFT AT

WORK.

HER FOOT LODGED BETWEEN BOXES

AND BODY HUNG UPSIDE DOWN UNTIL

A COWORKER CALLED 911.

MY HEAD HIT SOMETHING VERY

HARD.

I DIDN'T COME TO UNTIL THE NEXT

DAY.

AS EMMA HEALED FROM THE

WOUNDS SHE RECEIVED IN THE FALL,

SHE DEVELOPED WIDESPREAD REFLEX

SYMPATHETIC DISTROPHY RSD.

A CHRONIC NERVE DISORDER THAT

LEFT HER ENTIRE BODY IN SEVERE

PAIN.

I PARTNERED WITH GOD, THIS

ACCIDENT WAS BIGGER THAN I COULD

HANDLE.

I KNEW THAT I NEEDED TO KNOW

JESUS MORE IN MY LIFE NOW THAN

EVER BEFORE.

EVENTUALLY EMMA WAS BOUND TO

A WHEELCHAIR.

KATHY RUTTERBURG HAS BEEN HER

CARE GIVER THE LAST 18 YEARS.

SHE COULDN'T WALK AT ALL IN

HER WHEELCHAIR 24/7 WITH

EXCEPTION OF TOILETING.

EVENTUALLY THAT PAIN GOT SO

BAD IN THAT FOOT AND IN THE LEFT

HAND THAT THE FOOT STARTED TO

GROW CROOKED.

EMMA'S LEFT HAND CLOSED INTO

A FIST SHE WAS UNABLE TO OPEN.

HER NECK AND SPINE STWISED TO

THE LEFT LEAVING HER BODY IN AN

AWKWARD AND PAINFUL POSITION.

HER SON JASON SAW HOW HARD LIFE

HAD BECOME FOR HIS MOTHER.

DIFFICULT TO SEE HER DOING

DAILY THINGS.

YOU CAN SEE THE PAIN IN HER

FACE.

IT IS HARD TO SEE SOMEBODY GO

THROUGH THAT MUCH LESS A FAMILY

MEMBER.

THROUGHOUT YEARS, EMMA

MAINTAINED A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

DESPITE HER PAINFUL SITUATION.

NO MATTER HOW ROUGH HER LIFE

WAS PHYSICALLY SHE HAS ALWAYS

HAD JUST A BRIGHT SMILE, ALWAYS

BEEN SO WARM AND ENCOURAGING.

OTHER THING I HAVE NEVER SEEN

WAIVER IS HER FAITH.

I KEPT PRESSING FORWARD EACH

AND EVERYDAY KNOWING JESUS WAS

GOING TO GIVE ME THE STRENGTH,

HE WAS GOING TO BE THERE FOR ME.

HE NEVER LET ME DOWN.

HE WAS THERE FOR ME.

BLOOD CLOTS FORMED IN HER

LEGS WHICH POSED LIFE

THREATENING ISSUES.

DOCTORS WANTED TO AMPUTATE BOTH

LEGS.

I NEVER GAVE UP, I KEPT

PRAYING AND THANKING GOD FOR MY

HEALING.

I HAD THAT MUCH FAITH IN MY

JESUS TO KNOW THAT SOME DAY HE

WAS GOING TO GIVE ME THAT

HEALING.

NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS EVE

2011.

EMMA FELL OUT OF HER WHEELCHAIR

FOR EIGHT HOURS SHE LAY ON THE

FLOOR IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN

CRYING OUT TO JESUS FOR HELP.

JESUS CAME INTO HER ROOM AND

REACHED OUT TO TOUCH HER.

WHAT I SAW WAS THE MOST

AWESOME WHITE ROBE, I KNEW WHO

THAT WAS.

OUR HUMAN EYES, WE CAN'T EVEN

HARDLY LOOK AT IT, IT IS SO

BRIGHT WHITE.

I COULDN'T SEE IT BUT I COULD

FEEL THAT LEFT FOOD GOING FROM

THIS POSITION TO THIS POSITION.

JESUS WAS STRAIGHTENING OUT THAT

CROOKED FOOT.

I KNEW MY NECK AND SPINE WERE

BEING STRAIGHTENED.

THAT LEFT HAND CLINCH FIST OVER

18 YEARS, JESUS STARTED TO TAKE

THOSE FINGERS AND OPEN THEM UP.

I COULD TAKE THAT HAND AND I

COULD FLEX IT AND USE MY

FINGERS.

JESUS WAS NOW KNEELING ON ONE

KNEE RIGHT BESIDE ME.

AND HE EXTENDED HIS HAND OUT TO

ME ASKING FOR MINE.

THEN WE STOOD UP TOGETHER AND

EVEN THOUGH THE BONES WERE

SOUNDING AND CRACKING LIKE CRAZY

HE STILL HAD A HOLD OF MY HANDS.

THEN I KNEW I HAD TO START

WALKING AND USING MY FEET.

A FEW HOURS LATER EMMA'S

CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN CAME

TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS EVE

UNAWARE OF THE MIRACLE.

I COULD SEE DOWN THE HALL.

HERE SHE COMES WALKING.

NO WAY.

I HADN'T SEEN MOM OUT OF A

WHEELCHAIR SINCE MY WEDDING IN

1993.

AT THAT MOMENT EVERYTHING I KNEW

WAS DIFFERENT.

SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN A

CHAIR.

SHE IS WALKING.

IT WAS JUST A SURREAL MOMENT

SEEING HER WALK.

IT IS A MIRACLE, THERE IS

NOTHING ELSE IT COULD BE.

WE KIND OF GOT THROUGH

HUGGING MY TWO SONS, I WENT OVER

AND GRABBED THOSE TWO GRANDSONS.

I GAVE THEM A BIG HUG FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN ALL THOSE YEARS.

THAT NIGHT EMMA AND HER

FAMILY WERE IN AWE OF

GRANDDAUGHTER'S LOVE AND POWER

AS THEY CELEBRATED HER CHRISTMAS

MIRACLE.

EMMA SAYS BEING ABLE TO STAND

AND WALK ON HER OWN HAS CHANGED

HER LIFE FOREVER.

ALTHOUGH SHE STILL HAS RSD

SYMPTOMS, SHE AND HER FAMILY

BELIEVE GOD IS IN CONTROL.

TODAY WITH HER SON JASON, EMMA

JOYFULLY SHARES HER STORY OF HOW

JESUS HEARD HER PRAYERS AND

FOREVER CHANGED HER LIFE ON

CHRISTMAS EVE.

THIS IS SUCH A STORY OF HOPE.

THIS MIRACLE IS NOT JUST FOR MY

MOM, NOT JUST FOR OUR FAMILY BUT

FOR EVERYBODY.

WHATEVER DIFFICULTIES PEOPLE ARE

FACING, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE.

JESUS HAS NEVER LET ME DOWN.

HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR ME

IN HIS WORD HE SAYS HE WILL

NEVER LEAVE US OR FORSAKE US.

I KNEW THAT.

I TRUST HIS WORD.

I AM NO LONGER THE CROOKED LADY

WITH THE BROKEN BODY IN THE

WHEELCHAIR.

I AM KNOWN AS THE LADY WITH THE

CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.

TERRY: QUITE A STORY I HOPE

EMMA'S STORY BUILT YOUR FAITH.

PAT: JESUS COMES IN.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STORY.

REACH DOWN AND TAKES HER HANDS

ANDS LIFTS HER UP FROM THE

FLOOR, OH MAN.

TERRY: INCREDIBLE.

PAT: FOLKS WE WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU.

BACK AGAIN.
