The 700 Club - May 30, 2016

Neither the threat of prison nor the fear of overdosing kept Houston from returning to the master of his life – addiction. Also, Marie thought she’d spend her adult life battling MS until a visit to a meeting changed everything. Read Transcript


Gordon: A DRUG LORD

BUILDS AN EMPIRE AND LOSES

IT OVERNIGHT.

I WAS A MACHO GUY, BUT

INSIDE I WAS A SCARED

LITTLE PUNK.

Gordon: AND THEN...

HER BODY WOULD SHAKE

AND QUIVER.

Gordon: SEIZURES WERE

DESTROYING HER BODY AND

HER MIND.

THIS IS WHAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

HOW DARE YOU PUT SO MUCH

HOPE IN MY LIFE.

Gordon: HER

MIRACULOUS HEALING ON

TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB."

MY FRIEND SAID, GOD'S

GOT THIS.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

HE'S GOT THIS.

*

Gordon: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FOR TODAY'S TOP HEADLINES,

LET'S GO TO THE CBN

NEWSDESK.

GORDON, SIX PEOPLE ARE

DEAD AND AT LEAST TWO ARE

MISSING AFTER SEVERE

WEATHER HITS PARTS OF

SOUTHEAST, TEXAS.

DAYS OF TORRENTIAL RAIN

BROUGHT FLASHFLOODS,

FORCING BLACKOUTS AND MAS

MASSIVE EVACUATIONS.

IN THE EAST, THE FIRST

TROPICAL STORM IS STILL

SOAKING PARTS OF THE

CAROLINAS.

GEORGE THOMAS BRINGS US

THE STORY.

George: ALL ALONG THE

BRAZOS RIVER AND FORT

BEND, TEXAS, FAMILIES ARE

STILL IN SHOCK AT JUST HOW

FAST THE WATER WAS RISING.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING

TO BE SAFE.

I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS GOING

TO COME UP THIS FAST.

George: DAYS OF

TORRENTIAL RAIN PRODUCED

RECORD FLOODING ACROSS THE

REGION.

THERE IS A TRAFFIC JAM

EASTBOUND, EAST OF 45, AND

HIGH WATER OFF ON THE RIDE

SIDE OF THE ROAD.

George: SOME PLACES,

LIKE BRENHAM, TEXAS, SAW

19 INCHES OF RAINFALL IN

LESS THAN 48 HOURS.

AERIAL FOOTAGE SHOWED

PEOPLE WADING IN

WAIST-DEEP WATER AND

RESIDENTS TRYING TO GET TO

HIGHER GROUND.

THERE WERE MANDATORY

EVACUATIONS IN SOME

NEIGHBORHOODS, BUT THOSE

WHO DECIDED TO STICK

AROUND AND BRAVE THE

RISING WATERS COULD ONLY

HOPE AND PRAY FOR THE

BEST.

I'M WATCHING.

I MEAN, THERE IS NOT MUCH

WE CAN DO.

JUST GO WITH THE FLOW.

George: THE RAINS

HAVE STOPPED FOR NOW, BUT

MORE ARE EXPECTED TO HIT

THE LONE STAR STATE BY THE

MIDDLE OF THE WEEK.

AND IN THE EAST.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION BARNEY

IS STILL SOAKING PARTS OF

THE CAROLINAS.

THIS RIVER IS ALSO KNOWN

AS I-95 IN RICHLAND, SOUTH

CAROLINA.

OFFICIALS HAD TO SHOT DOWN

ONE LANE OF THE INTERSTATE

AFTER HEAVY RAIN CAUSED

FLOODING.

RESCUE CREWS WERE HARD AT

WORK ON SUNDAY, HELPING

FOLKS CAUGHT IN THE

FLOODWATERS.

WE THANK GOD FOR OUR

LIVES.

WE THANK GOD THAT NOBODY

IS HURT SERIOUSLY.

LIFE GOES ON.

WE MADE IT.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP

PUSHING.

George: THE

SLOW-MOVING STORM, WHICH

MADE LANDFALL JUST EAST OF

CHARLESTON, SOUTH

CAROLINA, WILL CONTINUE TO

BRING STEADY RAIN AND

THUNDERSTORMS INTO

MEMORIAL DAY, AS IT

MEANDERS UP THE COAST

LATER IN THE WEEK.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Heather: JAN CROUCH,

THE CO-FOUNDER OF THE

TRINITY NETWORK, IS

RECOVERING FROM A STROKE

SHE SUFFERED LAST WEEK.

HER FAMILY IS CALLING ON

FOLKS AROUND THE WORLD TO

PRAY FOR HER FULL RECOVERY

AND HEALING.

SHE IS RESTING COMFORTABLY

AS HER PHYSICIANS AND

FAMILY CARE FOR HER.

AND SHE CONTINUES TO PLACE

HER TRUST IN GOD.

SHE AND HER LATE HUSBAND

FOUNDED TBN IN LATE 1973,

AND TOGETHER THEY PRODUCED

MANY PROGRAMS, INCLUDING,

"PRAISE THE LORD."

YOU CAN KEEP UPDATDATED ON

THIS STORY ON

cbnnews.com.

> THE SALES OF FLAGS

HAVE BEEN RISING THIS

YEAR.

THE MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SAYS

THAT SALES FOR FLAGS IN

OAK, CREEKOAK CREEK, WISCONSIN, ARE

UP 15% SINCE LAST YEAR.

PARTLY BECAUSE IT IS AN

ELECTION YEAR, AND ALSO

BECAUSE THE BUILDINGS ARE

GETTING BETTER AND NEED

NOW FLAGS.

AND THEY BELIEVE THERE HAS

BEEN A RISE IN PATRIOTISM.

> SOME CHICK-FIL-A

RESTAURANTS ARE HONORING

AMERICA'S FALLEN SOLDIERS.

TWO ALABAMA LOCATIONS HAVE

SET A SINGLE TABLE FOR

FALLEN SOLDIERS MARKED BY

AN EMPTY SEAT.

THE TABLE IS SET WITH A

ROSE, A WHITE TABLECLOTH,

AND A NOTE EXPLAINING WHY

WE CELEBRATE MEMORIAL DAY.

THE NOTE SAYS THE SOLDIERS

ARE NOT FORGOTTEN AND WILL

BE REMEMBERED BY THOSE

LEFT BEHIND.

THE STORES ARE ALSO GIVING

A SPECIAL MEMORIAL DEAL

FOR THOSE WHO ARE SERVING

OR WHO HAVE SERVED IN THE

U.S. MILITARY.

AND A CHICK-FIL-A IN

LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, ALSO

HAD A MISSING MAN TABLE.

IT INCLUDED A BIBLE,

REPRESENTING THE STRENGTH

GAINED THROUGH FAITH.

> WELL, THE U.S. SENDS

$3 BILLION IN FOREIGN AID

TO ISRAEL EVERY YEAR.

TOMORROW "THE 700 CLUB"

WILL HEAR FROM AN ISRAELI

EXPERT WHO SAYS WE SHOULD

LOOK AT THAT AS AN

INVESTMENT, NOT A HANDOUT.

FIND OUT WHY THE UNITED

STATES IS SAFER BECAUSE OF

ITS PARTNERSHIP WITH

ISRAEL.

> AND THOSE ARE TODAY'S

TOP STORIES FROM CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF TODAY'S

Gordon: IT'S A

SPECIAL TREATMENT THAT

USES SOMETHING AS COMMON

AS THE AIR WITH BREATHE.

LOLORIE JOHNSON TELLS US HOW

OXYGEN CAN BE USED TO HELP

HEAL OUR BODIES FROM EVEN

THE WORST OF INJURIES.

Lorie: IT IS HARD TO

BELIEVE MICHAEL BEAN BLACK

SURVIVED THIS HORRIFIC CAR

CRASH.

AN 18-WHEELER CUT ME

OFF.

HE SWITCHED LANES AND MADE

ME TURN.

I TURNED INTO THE MEDIAN

AND I HIT THE MEDIAN NINE

TIMES AND I WAS EJECTED

FROM THE CAR.

Lorie: AND LANDED ON

HIS HEAD.

EVEN THE DOCTORS GAVE UP

HOPE.

AFTER THREE DAYS, WHEN

THE DOCTOR SAYS, WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE HIM OFF LIFE

SUPPORT, AND WE SAID,

THAT'S NOT GOING TO

HAPPEN.

WHILE HE WAS IN A COMA, WE

PUT UP A "BEAN'S RECOVERY

GROUP," UP ON Facebook.

WE ASKED EVERYBODY WE KNEW

FOR PRAYERS, AND THEY

PASSED IT ON TO EVERYBODY

THEY KNEW, AND WE HAD

PRAYERS FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

I KNOW THAT'S WHAT BROUGHT

HIM OUT OF THE COMA.

Lorie: MICHAEL STILL

SUFFERED FROM SEVERE

INJURIES, INCLUDING BRAIN

DAMAGE.

THINGS TURNED AROUND AFTER

HE STARTED GETTING

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN

TREATMENTS.

HE COULDN'T TALK,

HARDLY.

HE WOULD SAY THINGS, BUT

THEY WERE THINGS THAT YOU

WOULD SAY, WOULD?

HE STARTED COMING IN THE

HYPERBARIC CHAMBER AND IT

CLEARED HIM UP AMAZINGLY.

WE KEPT BRINGING HIM BACK.

Lorie: HYPERBARIC

OXYGEN THERAPY INVOLVES

BREATHING 100% PURE OXYGEN

INSIDE A PRESSURIZED

CHAMBER FOR ABOUT AN HOUR

TO AN HOUR AND A HALF.

WE NORMALLY ONLY BREATHE

ABOUT 20% OXYGEN.

THE SUPER CHARGED OXYGEN

IS A NATURAL HEALER.

WITH THAT PRESSURE

BEING PRESENT, THEN THE

BLOOD VESSEL IS FULLY

SATURATED WITH OXYGEN, SO

THE TISSUES GET 15% MORE

OXYGEN.

SO YOU GET THE INCREASE IN

THE HEALING PROCESS AND

THE CELL RECOVERY PROCESS.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED, I

WOULD COME HERE IN A

WHEELCHAIR AND HAVE TO BE

WHEELED IN AND GET OUT AND

GO IN ONE OF THE CHAMBERS.

THEN I MOVED TO A WALKER.

AND THEN I MOVED TO A

CANE.

BUT IT HELPED MY MUSCLES

BECAUSE MY MUSCLES WERE

REALLY TENSE.

AND IT RELAXED THEM.

Reporter: AFTER THE

FIRST 40 TREATMENTS,

MICHAEL WENT BACK FOR 40

MORE A FEW MONTHS LATER.

COSTS VARY FROM AS LITTLE

AS $100 AN HOUR ON UP.

INSURANCE AND MEDICARE

SOMETIMES OFFER COVERAGE,

DEPENDING ON THE CONDITION

BEING TREATED.

WHEN I FIRST STARTED, I

HAD A BAD CASE OF

INSOMNIA, AND COULDN'T

SLEEP.

AND EVERY TIME I CAME

HERE, AFTER I GOT DONE

WITH THE CHAMBER, I WOULD

GO HOME AND FALL ASLEEP.

MY MEMORY HAS GOTTEN A LOT

BETTER BECAUSE I COULDN'T

REALLY REMEMBER.

LIKE, I WOULD DO SOMETHING

IN THE MORNING, AND BY

AFTERNOON, I WOULD FORGET

WHAT I HAD DONE.

NOW I HAVE A PRETTY GOOD

MEMORY.

Lorie: THERE IS NO

QUESTION THAT PEOPLE SEE

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF

OXYGEN.

JUST A FEW YEARS AGO,

OXYGEN BARS WERE POPPING

UP ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

BUT THAT'S A FAR CRY FROM

WHAT PROPER TREATMENTS

LIKE HYPERBARIC OXYGEN

THERAPY CAN ACHIEVE.

MIKE, ARE YOU OKAY?

Lorie: AND IT'S EASY.

THEY JUST PUT YOU IN

THIS NICE GLASS TUBE AND

YOU GET TO WATCH TV.

AND YOUR EARS KIND OF POP

BECAUSE THEY PUT YOU UNDER

PRESSURE.

IT IS LIKE BREATHING

REGULAR AIR.

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE.

Lorie: CONSUMERS CAN

BUY PORTABLE HYPERBARIC

OXYGEN CHAMBERS, BUT THEY

TYPICALLY DELIVER FAR LESS

OXYGEN THAN THE

INDUSTRIAL-GRADE ONES.

IT IS USED TO TREAT

CONDITIONS LIKE MIGRAINES,

CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING,

AND STROKE.

THEY HAVE BETTER

COORDINATION, AND THEY

HAVE BETTER STRENGTH.

AND MANY PEOPLE ARE ABLE

TO GET BACK TO CLOSE TO

NORMAL FUNCTIONING

POST-STROKE.

Lorie: AND IT IS ALSO

USED BY PEOPLE WITH BURNS,

HEARING LOSS AND AUTISM.

WE SEE THE MOST

RESPONSE WITH PEOPLE WITH

SPEECH PROBLEMS.

IT IS ABLE TO HELP WITH

SPEECH PROBLEMS AND

RECOVERY.

Lorie: HYPERBARIC

OXYGEN THERAPY MAY NOT BE

FOR EVERY, BUT DAY MICHAEL

BLACK IS IN FAR BETTER

SHAPE THAN HE OR HIS

FAMILY EVER DREAMED

POSSIBLE SINCE HIS NEAR

FATAL CAR CRASH.

THEY BELIEVE THIS THERAPY

HAS A LOT TO DO WITH HIS

RECOVERY, SO THEY PLAN TO

STICK WITH IT AND

HOPEFULLY SEE EVEN MORE

IMPROVEMENT.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT

TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

THIS AMAZING THERAPY, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

cbnnews.com.

LORIE'S STORY WILL BE

THERE, AS WELL AS SOME

ADDITIONAL FACTS ON IT.

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK WITH

YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE

UNDERGOING ANYTHING NEW

LIKE THIS, BUT IT IS WORTH

TAKING A LOOK.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

METH COOM WH COOK WHO WENT FROM

DEALING DRUGS TO DEALING

TIME.

NOW I'M IN JAIL AND I'M

25 YEARS OLD, MAN.

Terry: WATCH WHAT

SCARED HIM STRAIGHT.

THAT'S NEXT.

Gordon: HOUSTON JARED

WAS A METH COOK, AND JUST

LIKE "BREAKING BAD," HE

WAS GOOD AT IT.

HE WENT FROM MAKING A FEW

HUNDRED DOLLARS A WEEK TO

A FEW THOUSAND.

AND WHILE HE GOT RICH

MAKING AND DEALING DRUGS,

HE ALSO HAD TO PAY A VERY

HEAVY PRICE.

I WAS SO JUNG JUNKED UP WITH

CHEMICALS, I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT FEELINGS WAS.

DOPE TOLD ME WHEN TO GO TO

SLEEP.

ALCOHOL TOLD ME WHEN TO

WAKE UP.

DRUGS TOLD ME WHEN TO

CHEAT AND STEAL AND LIE.

IT WAS MY MASTER AND I

OBEYED IT FAITHFULLY.

Reporter: HOUSTON

JARED GREW UP IN A

CHRISTIAN HOME, BUT

REJECTED HIS PARENTS'

FAITH FOR WHAT HE FOUND IN

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL.

HE MADE FAST CASH IN

MANUFACTURING AND SELLING

METH.

AND BEFORE LONG, HE WAS

USING HIS OWN PRODUCT.

I LIKE THE WAY I FEEL.

I CAN GAMBLE -- INSTEAD OF

FOR 12 HOURS OF GAMBLING,

I CAN GAMBLE FOR THREE

DAYS.

ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS

JUST SNORT A LITTLE LINE

OF THIS.

AND THAT JUST BECOMES MORE

AND MORE.

IT JUST CONSUMED ME.

IT CONSUMED EVERYTHING

AROUND ME.

IT AFFECTED ME AND

EVERYONE AROUND ME BECAME

CONTAGIOUS.

I HAPPENED TO HAVE THE

CONNECTION, SO I WAS THE

MAN.

Reporter: HIS METH

EMPIRE GREW THROUGH

CONNECTIONS WITH A BIKER

GANG.

BUT BAD COMPANY AND DRUG

USE LED TO FEAR AND

PARANOIA.

TOTING PISTOLS AROUND A

LOT.

I WASN'T SO MUCH AFRAID OF

THE POLICE, AS MUCH I WAS

AFRAID OF THE PERSON WHO

WOULD PUT THAT GUN TO MY

HEAD AND ROB ME.

THIS WAS MINE.

IF IT MEANT ME KILLING YOU

FOR IT, THEN SO BE IT.

SO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

TAKE MY STUFF.

Reporter: TO HOUSTON,

TIME IN JAIL OR

COURT-ORDERED REHAB WAS

JUST A COST OF DOING

BUSINESS.

BUT AS THE STATE'S WAR ON

DRUGS RAMPED UP, SO DID

HOUSTON'S PRISON TIME.

WE WERE MANUFACTURING

METH THAT NIGHT.

AND ABOUT DAYLIGHT THAT

MORNING, RIGHT BEFORE WE

WRAPPED IT UP, THE

SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

KICKED IN THE FRONT DOOR.

IT WASN'T NO SMALL-TIME

JAIL ANYMORE.

THEY WERE TIRED OF THE

METHAMPHETAMINE IN

ARKANSAS, AND THEY WERE

MAKING EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE.

THE FIRST FELONY IN MY

LIFE, I DONE THREE AND A

HALF YEARS IN PRISON.

I WAS A MACHO GUY, BUT

INSIDE I WAS A SCARED

LITTLE PUNK.

I'M ANGRY BECAUSE I GOT

BUSTED.

I'M TORMENTED ON THE

INSIDE BECAUSE MY LAWYERS

CAN'T GET ME OUT OF THIS.

AND ON TOP OF ALL OF THAT,

ALL OF THE PATCHES, ALL OF

THE MOTORCYCLE GUYS, THEY

TURNED THEIR BACK ON ME

IMMEDIATELY.

NOW I'M IN JAIL GETTING

WHOOPED, AND I'M 25 YEARS

OLD, MAN.

AND INSIDE ME THERE WAS

ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT DREW

ME T TO KNOW THIS ISN'T WHAT

YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE

DOING.

Reporter: WHEN HE GOT

OUT OF PRISON, HE LIVED

WITH HIS BROTHER, WHO ALSO

DEALT METH.

HE MOVED AWAY.

HIS BROTHER CONTINUED THE

BUSINESS UNTIL ONE DAY HE

VANISHED.

THEY FOUND REMNANTS OF

WHAT THEY THINK WAS HIM.

THE MOTORCYCLE GANGS KNOW

HOW TO DISPOSE THINGS.

THAT IS SOMETHING THAT

LAYS ON MY MIND BECAUSE I

INTRODUCED HIM TO THAT.

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY

MIND I INTRODUCED HIM TO

THE PERSON THAT KILLED

HIM.

I WAS A MAD YOUNG MAN.

BUT NOW I LIVED IN PRISON,

AND SO THE FEAR OF PRISON

WASN'T ENOUGH TO GET ME TO

STOP BECAUSE I LIVED

THROUGH IT.

AND THE FEAR OF O.D.-ING

WASN'T ENOUGH BECAUSE I

O.D.'D SEVERAL TIMES.

Reporter: AFTER A

HIGH-SPEED CHASE IN A

STOLEN CAR, HE WAS

SENTENCED TO SEVEN YEARS

IN PRISON.

HE TRIED EVERY AVENUE TO

TRY TO GET THE SENTENCE

SUSPENDED, EVEN APPEALING

FOR A TEEN CHALLENGE, BUT

HE WAS REJECTED.

GOD GOT ME IN THAT

SMALL, STILL LITTLE PLACE

WHERE I COULD HEAR HIS

VOICE.

AND HE SAID COME TO ME.

I'LL NEVER FORGET IT.

I CRIED OUT TO GOD AND I

SAID, GOD, HELP ME.

I WAS USED UP AND WASHED

UP AND STEPPED ON.

GOD PUT HIS ARMS AROUND ME

AND I FELT THE LOVE OF

GOD.

I WAS FORGIVEN.

I WAS FORGIVEN.

AND I FELT ANY KIND OF

URGES OR BONDAGE OF DRUG

ADDICTION OR ALCOHOLISM,

OR ANY ISSUE -- I HAD SO

MANY OF THEM -- I WAS SET

FREE FROM ITMENT IT WAS IT.

IT WAS LIKE A CURTIN

LIFTED OFF OF ME.

A 2,000-POUND ELEPHANT OFF

MY BACK AND I BEGAN TO

PRAISE GOD.

Reporter: HE BEGAN

FASTING AND SPENT HOURS IN

PRAYER AND BIBLE READING.

HE SAYS THE LOVE OF GOD

FINALLY FILLED THE EMPTY

HOLE IN THIS LIFE.

I LOOKED FOR IT IN

DRUGS AND GAMBLING -- IT

WAS ALL TEMPORARY.

I LOOKED FOR IT IN WOMEN

AND!

ALCOHOL, AND IT'S ALL

TEMPORARY.

I COULD ONLY FIND SOME

PEACE AND JOY FOR A LITTLE

WHILE, AND AFTER THAT IT

WAS GONE, USED UP.

JIM BEAM LET ME DOWN.

COCAINE LET ME DOWN.

JESUS CHRIST HAS NEVER LET

ME DOWN, BROTHER, NEVER.

Reporter:

MIRACULOUSLY, AFTER NINE

MONTHS IN JAIL, HE WAS

ACCEPTED INTO A ONE YEAR

TEEN CHALLENGE PROGRAM.

AND THE JUDGE SUSPENDED

HIS SENTENCE.

IT SAVED MY LIFE.

JESUS DELIVERED ME.

HE GOT ME IN A PLACE WHERE

I COULD BE BROKEN.

HE DELIVERED ME.

AND HE GAVE ME A

FOUNDATION THAT I COULD

BUILD ON AND HAVE BEEN

BUILDING ON.

THE FREEDOM THAT THE BIBLE

TALKS ABOUT IN JESUS

CHRIST, I FELT IT.

IT WASN'T JUST SOME WORDS

ON A PAPER OR SOME

PREACHER PREACHING TO ME.

Reporter: HOUSTON NOW

SERVES AS A YOUTH PASTOR

IN HIS CHURCH AND IS

MARRIED TO LANA, THE LOVE

OF HIS LIFE.

AND HE ALSO WORKS WITH

TEEN CHALLENGE, SHARING

WITH OTHERS THE TRUE

IDENTITY HE FOUND IN JESUS

CHRIST.

I'M NOT A DRUG ADDICT.

I'M NOT AN ALCOHOLIC.

I'M NOT A CONVICTED FELON.

I'M NOT A CONVICT.

I'M THE SO SON OF THE ONE

TRUE GOD.

I LOOK AT THE FREEDOM THAT

I HAVE IN IT, AS BEING A

CHRISTIAN, AND I WALK IN

THAT FREEDOM.

AND I WALK IN THAT MERCY

AND THAT GRACE.

I WANT TO TELL EVERYONE IN

THE WORLD ABOUT IT.

Gordon: AND YOU CAN

WALK IN THAT FREEDOM, THAT

GRACE, THE REMARKABLE

PRIVILEGE THAT COMES FROM

KNOWING THAT YOU'RE A

CHILD OF GOD.

AND THAT HE LOVES YOU

INFINITELY.

HOUSTON JARED'S STORY IS

NOT UNIQUE.

YES, FROM STANDPOINTS YOU

CAN LOOK AT IT AND SAY,

I'D NEVER DO THAT.

BUT SO OFTEN WE KNOW THE

RIGHT WAY TO GO AND WE

CHOOSE OUR OWN WAY.

AND WHETHER, LIKE HOUSTON,

YOU GET INTO DEEP

ADDICTION OR NOT, IF

YOU'RE APART FROM GOD,

YOU'RE STILL SUFFERING.

YOU'RE STILL IN A PLACE

WHERE IT'S WHAT'S MY

PURPOSE?

WHAT DO I DO?

WHERE DO I GO?

WHAT MEANING IS THERE TO

LIFE?

REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU

PURSUE, WHETHER IT IS

ALCOHOL OR DRUGS OR

TEMPORARY RELATIONSHIPS OR

SUCCESS OR MONEY, AT THE

END OF THAT, YOU KNOW IT

NEVER SERVICE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

THAT SERVICE, AND IT'S

WHAT WE'RE MADE FOR.

GOD MADE US IN HIS IMAGE,

SO THAT WE COULD HAVE

FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM.

THAT'S THE PURPOSE.

THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL

ABOUT.

AND IT'S ONLY IN THAT

FELLOWSHIP THAT YOU FIND

THE PEACE AND THE JOY AND

THE SATISFACTION YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR.

WE ALL HAVE THIS ETERNITY

IN OUR HEARTS.

AND THAT ETERNITY CAN ONLY

BE FILLED BY THE ETERNAL

ONE.

AND UNTIL WE FIND THAT,

AND UNTIL WE FIND HIM AND

THAT RELATIONSHIP WITH A

PERSONAL GOD, WELL, YOU'RE

NEVER GOING TO BE

SATISFIED.

AND THE MORE YOU PURSUE

THE THINGS THAT WON'T DO

THAT, THE MORE YOU

ACTUALLY IMPRISON

YOURSELF, AND YOU GET

TRAPPED IN IT.

AND YOU WONDER, CAN WILL

EVER BE A WATHEREEVER BE A WAY OUT?

REALIZE TODAY THAT IN

GOD'S EYES, YOU ARE INFIN

INFINITELY VALUABLE.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT ALL OF

THE WRECKS THAT HAVE

HAPPENED IN YOUR LIFE.

GOD THINKS YOU'RE IN

INFINITELY VALUABLE.

HE THINKS YOU'RE WORTH THE

PRICE HE PAID FOR YOU.

AND THAT PRICE WAS HIS

ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS

CHRIST.

AND HE PAID THAT WILLINGLY

BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU.

FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE

HIM.

AND THAT JOY IS YOU COMING

HOME TO HIM.

YOU FINDING HIM.

AND HAVING THAT

RELATIONSHIP THAT FILLS

YOU TO OVERFLOWING.

IF YOU WANT THAT -- YOU

SAW HOUSTON'S STORY.

YOU SAW THE LIGHT IN HIS

EYES WHEN HE STARTED

TALKING ABOUT JESUS AND

THE JOY HE HAD, YOU COULD

SEE THE LIGHT IN HIS EYE.

AND YOU CAN HAVE THAT SAME

LIGHT.

YOU CAN KNOW FOR CERTAIN

THAT YOU'RE FORGIVEN, THAT

YOU'RE REDEEMED, THAT

YOU'RE RESTORED.

AND YOU CAN HAVE A BRAND

NEW LIFE TODAY.

NOW, HOW DO YOU GET IT?

IT'S REAL SIMPLE: YOU ASK

FOR IT.

YOU ASK FOR JESUS TO COME

INTO YOUR HEART.

YOU ASK FOR HIM TO SAVE

YOU.

AND THEN YOU BELIEVE IT.

AND AT THAT MOMENT YOU

HAVE IT.

IF YOU WANT IT -- IF

YOU'RE NOT RIGHT WITH GOD

AND WANT TO GET RIGHT WITH

HIM RIGHT NOW, DON'T

CHANGE THIS CHANNEL.

BUT RIGHT NOW BOW YOUR

HEAD AND LET'S PRAY AND

LET GOD DO WHAT HE HAS

DONE FOR OTHERS.

HE WILL FULFILL HIS

PROMISE FOR YOU.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME.

CLOSE YOUR EYES, BOW YOUR

HEAD -- JESUS, I OPEN MY

HEART TO YOU.

AND I ASK THAT YOU COME

IN.

I ASK THAT YOU FORGIVE ME,

THAT YOU MAKE ME NEW, AND

THAT YOU CLEANSE ME.

AND, JESUS, I WANT TO

FOLLOW YOU -- I WANT THIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU --

ALL OF THE DAYS OF MY

LIFE.

I WANT THAT.

SO, JESUS, HEAR MY PRAYER.

COME INTO MY HEART.

MAKE ME NEW.

FORGIVE ME OF ALL OF THE

THINGS I'VE DONE WRONG.

AND SET ME ON THE PATH

WITH YOU.

HEAR MY PRAYER, FOR I PRAY

IT IN YOUR NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I ASK FOR A

BAPTISM IN YOUR PRESENCE,

IN YOUR FORGIVENESS, IN

YOUR MERCY, IN YOUR GRACE,

AND IN YOUR LOVE.

FILL THEM TO OVER FLOWING

WITH YOUR SPIRIT.

SURROUND THEM WITH YOUR

PRESENCE.

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEIR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD AND

ANSWERED TODAY, FOR I ASK

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

I'VE GOT SOMETHING FOR

YOU.

AND IT'S ABSOLUTELY FREE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND IN IT IS A C.D.

TEACHING OF HOW DO YOU

LIVE THE CHRISTIAN LIFE,

WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE?

I ALSO ENCOURAGE YOU TO

GET A COPY OF THE BIBLE.

WE'VE GOT ONE FOR YOU FREE

LET THAT RENEW YOUR MIND.

START UNDERSTANDING WHAT

DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT

ME?

JOHN.

THAT'S THE GOSPEL OF LOVE.

IF YOU KNOW THAT GOSPEL,

YOU KNOW EVERYTHING YOU

NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

CHRISTIANITY.

A MILITARY FAMILY BRACES

FOR ANOTHER LONG

DEPLOYMENT.

I JUST GOT MY HUSBAND

BACK FROM A SIX-MONTH

DEPLOYMENT, AND TWO MONTHS

LATER, THEY TOLD ME THEY

ARE TAKING HIM FOR A YEAR.

I MEAN, I COULDN'T

SURVIVE.

Terry: HEAR HOW THEY

ALL GOT A LITTLE HELP FROM

THE HOMEFRONT.

AFTER THIS.

Heather: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IN TODAY'S EDITION OF

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT NEWS,

THE FILM "RISEN" DID A

RESPECTABLE ROUTE AT THE

BOX OFFICE.

THE FILM-MAKERS ARE

LOOKING TO REACH A

ADDITIONAL AUDIENCE.

"RISEN" IS A MURDER

MYSTERY.

IT IS THE RESURRECTION

STORY THROUGH THE EYES OF

CLAVIUS.

JOSEPH FIENNES PORTRAYS

THE MAN OF WAR, WHO HAS

BEEN TASKED WITH FINDING

JESUS' BODY AND TRYING TO

PROVE HE DID NOT RISE FROM

THE DEAD.

A BIG ATTRACTION FOR ME

WAS THE WAY HIS MIND

WORKED.

WHAT I FOUND TO GET

INTO HIS MIND I FOUND I

HAD TO TAKE A PHYSICAL

ROUTE.

I WENT TO GLADIATOR SCHOOL

IN ROME.

Efrem: HOW LONG DID

YOU STAY THERE?

I STAYED ENOUGH TO KNOW

I NEVER WANT TO GO BACK.

NO.

I SPENT A GOOD PART OF THE

WEEK WORKING WITH A

BRILLIANT SET OF GUYS.

WHAT I LEARNED FROM IT

FROM A MILITARY

STANDPOINT, REALLY FOR ME,

WAS THE WAY INTO THE WAY

THE MAN WAS CONDITIONED

AND THE WAY THAT HE

THOUGHT.

Heather: DIRECTOR

KEVIN REYNOLDS SHOT THE

FILM IN SPAIN AND MALTA.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: AS A SAILOR IN

THE NAVY, MATT HAS TO

LEAVE HIS WIFE AND

CHILDREN FOR LONG PERIODS

OF TIME.

SO WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING

WE CAN TO GIVE THEM MORE

TIME TOGETHER AND TO MAKE

THEIR TIME APART A LITTLE

EASIER.

Reporter: MATT AND

HIS WIFE, BRIE, DON'T TAKE

FAMILY TIME FOR GRANTED.

THEY CHERISH EVERY MINUTE

TOGETHER WITH THEIR

CHILDREN.

MATT KNOWS HE COULDN'T DO

HIS JOB WITHOUT BRIE'S

SUPPORT.

WITHOUT HER, IT IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

SHE IS THE FOUNDATION OF

IT ALL.

THAT'S VERY SWEET.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

FACES ITS BIGGEST

CHALLENGE YET.

THEY LEARNED MATT WILL

LEAVE AGAIN FOR A YEAR.

BRIE IS STANDING ON HER

FAITH IN GOD TO HELP HER

COPE.

I JUST GOT MY HUSBAND

BACK FROM A SIX-MONTH

DEPLOYMENT, AND TWO MONTHS

LATER, THEY TOLD ME THEY

ARE TAKING HIM FOR A YEAR.

I COULDN'T SURVIVE IF I

DIDN'T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

JUST KNOWING THAT HE IS IN

CONTROL OF IT AND HE HAS A

PLAN, AND HE IS GOING TO

BE THERE TO GET ME THROUGH

IT.

MOMMY, YOU CAN DO IT.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

DECIDED IT WAS BEST FOR

BRIE AND THE KIDS TO MOVE

BACK HOME TO TEXAS TO BE

NEAR FAMILY.

BUT THE NAVY DOESN'T PAY

FOR A VOLUNTARY MOVE.

SO THE FAMILY WOULD HAVE

TO GO INTO DEBT TO DO IT.

TO THEM, IT WAS IMPORTANT.

IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT

THAT SHE WAS CLOSE TO

FAMILY AND PEOPLE SHE CAN

RELY ON, THAT WILL

ULTIMATELY BE THERE FOR

HER AND OUR KIDS.

Reporter: MATT WOULD

BE ELIGIBLE TO COME HOME

ONCE ON LEAVE, BUT THEY

WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR HIS

TRAVEL EXPENSES, MONEY

THEY DON'T HAVE.

THEIR CHURCH HEARD ABOUT

THEIR SITUATION AND ASKED

CBN TO ASSIST.

WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE

TO HELP YOU WITH SOME OF

THE THINGS COMING UP AS

YOU MOVE DOWN TO TEXAS.

I KNOW IT WILL BE QUITE

EXPENSIVE, AND I WANT TO

LET YOU KNOW THAT CBN IS

GOING TO PAY FOR ALL OF

IT.

THAT'S AMAZING.

Reporter: AND PASTOR

WYNN TOLD THEM THEY WOULD

NOT NEED TO COME UP WITH

THE MONEY FOR MATT'S

LEAVE.

CBN WOULD LIKE TO PAY

FOR MATT TO COME HOME, PAY

FOR HIS ROUNDTRIP FROM

BAHRAIN.

THAT'S AWESOME.

IT'S A HUGE BLESSING.

WE'RE VERY THANKFUL, VERY

THANKFUL.

Reporter: NOW THIS

MILITARY FAMILY CAN FOCUS

ON THE MOVE TO TEXAS

WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT

FINANCES.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

HELPING MY FAMILY AND

BLESSING US AND SHOWING US

THAT GOD IS WITH US.

Terry: WE THANK ALL

MILITARY FOR THE SERVICE

THAT THEY GIVE TO OUR

COUNTRY, BUT YOU CAN SEE

THAT IT TAKES A TOLL ON

FAMILIES.

AND "HELPING THE

HOMEFRONT" IS JUST ONE OF

THE THINGS THAT CBN IS

> UP NEXT, AN INCURABLE

DISEASE VANISHES AFTER

CAUSING NEARLY FIVE YEARS

OF AGONY.

THAT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL

I SAID: LORD, I'M READY TO

RECEIVE EVERYTHING YOU

HAVE FOR ME.

Terry: HEAR THE REST

OF HER AMAZING STORY WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Gordon: IF YOU'RE

WONDERING IF PRAYER

CAN-CHANGECANCHANGE THINGS, MEET MARIE

SPENCER.

MARIE SUFFERED WITH

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

AND SHE EVEN GOT OFFENDED

AT THE NOTION OF A GOD WHO

HEALS.

AND HERE IS WHAT CHANGED

HER MIND.

I WOULD HAVE SEIZURES

IN GROCERY STORES, IN

RESTAURANTS, ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

THEY FINALLY PUT ME ON

SOMETHING THAT WOULD SLOW

THEM DOWN A LITTLE, BUT I

STILL HAD THEM THREE TO

FIVE TIMES A DAY.

Reporter: AFTER

SUFFERING A SEIZURE AT

WORK, MARIE SPENCER WHY

DIAGNOSED WITH SECONDARY

PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS, A DEC DOCTORS DISEASE

DOCTORS TOLD HER MAY

EVENTUALLY TAKE HER LIFE.

SHE WAS IN BED 24/7 ALL

DAY.

IF SHE WANTED TO GET

AROUND ANYWHERE, SHE GOT

ON HER SCOOTER AND A

CARETAKER HAD TO HELP HER

GET ON THERE.

MARIE USED TO BE PRETTY

MUCH BEDRIDDEN.

SHE HAD CARETAKERS AROUND

THE CLOCK.

I WAS EXISTING, JUST

EXISTING.

GOING THROUGH LIFE EVERY

DAY, EXISTING WITHOUT A

PURPOSE OR A DESTINY.

THE NEXT STEP WAS TO

PUT ME IN A NURSING HOME.

Reporter: HER FRIEND,

JULIE, WHO WAS A

CHRISTIAN, GAVE HER A

BIBLE TAPE AND ENCOURAGED

HER TO LISTEN.

I WAS UPLIFTING TO ME.

AND I WOULD LISTEN TO IT

OVER AND OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND

JOHN.

IT KIND OF GAVE ME HOPE,

SOMETHING I NEVER HAD

BEFORE.

Reporter: MARIE

STARTED GOING TO A BIBLE

STUDY WITH HER FRIEND.

I WAS VERY COMMON FOR

MARIE TO HAVE A SEIZURE

DURING THE BIBLE STUDY.

SHE SOMETIMES WOULD PASS

OUT.

HER BODY WOULD SHAKE AND

QUIVER.

AND SHE WOULD BE EXHAUSTED

AFTERWARDS.

AND THEY WOULD JUST

LOVE ME.

THEY WOULD JUST MEET ME

WHERE I WAS AT.

THEY WOULD LOVE ME AND

THEY WOULD JUST TELL ME

ABOUT THE LORD.

Reporter: HER FRIENDS

PRAYED FOR MARIE TO BE

HEALED, DESPITE HER

WORSENING CONDITION AND

DOCTORS' GRIM PROGNOSIS.

THEY SAID, YOU KNOW GOD

CAN HEAL YOU, AND I GOT

OFFENDED.

HOW DARE YOU PUT HOME

WHERE THEY ABSOLUTELY SAY

THE PROGNOSIS IS.

THIS IS WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

HOW DARE YOU PUT SO MUCH

HOPE IN MY LIFE.

WE PRAYED FOR MARIE

BECAUSE WE WANTED HER

COMPLETE AND WHOLE.

WE BELIEVED GOD HAD MORE

FOR HER.

Reporter: THE MORE

SHE LISTENED TO THE

GOSPELS AND ATTENDED BIBLE

STUDY, THE MORE SHE BECAME

OPEN TO SUPER NATURAL

HEALING.

SHE EVENTUALLY AGREED TO

GO TO A "WOMEN'S AGLOWING"

HEALING SERVICE.

I PRAYED A SIMPLE PRAY.

LORD, I'M READY TO RECEIVE

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE FOR

ME.

AND THAT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL

I SAID.

Reporter: BUT AS THE

SERVICE BEGAN, MARIE HAD

THE WORST SEIZURE OF HER

LIFE.

I ENDED UP ON THE

FLOOR, AND MY FRIEND SAID,

GOD'S GOT THIS.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

HE'S GOT THIS.

THE LADIES CAME OVER AND

PRAYED FOR ME AND JESUS

TOOK IT'S SEIZURE AWAY.

Reporter: MARIE ASKED

TO RECEIVE JESUS INTO HER

LIFE AND PRAYED TO BE

COMPLETELY HEALED OF M.S.

IMMEDIATELY SHE SAYS SHE

FELT SOMETHING LEAVE HER

BODY.

AND SHE LOOKED ME

STRAIGHT IN THE EYE, AND

SHE SAID, YOU FOUL SPIRIT

OF M.S., YOU COME OUT OF

HER NOW IN THE NAME OF

JESUS CHRIST.

RIGHT OUT OF THE SIDE OF

MY HEAD, RIGHT HERE.

I GOT UP AND WALKED VERY

QUICKLY THROUGH ALL OF

THESE LADIES.

AND THEN I WENT INTO THE

HALLWAY AND I RAN AS FAST

AS I COULD BACK AND FORTH,

BACK AND FORTH, BACK AND

FORTH.

AS I WAS RUNNING, THE HOLY

SPIRIT WAS TELLING ME,

YOU'RE HEALED.

YOU'RE HEALED.

YOU'RE HEALED.

I WAS CRYING AND IT WAS

JUST INCREDIBLE.

ONE MINUTE I'M NOT WALKING

OR TALKING OR ANYTHING,

AND THE NEXT MINUTE I'M

LIKE I AM NOW, NO

SEIZURES, NO NOTHING.

I REMEMBER WHEN MY MOM

CAME HOME AND SAID SHE WAS

HEALED.

ME AND MY BROTHERS AND MY

DAD KIND OF LOOKED AT HER

AND WE SAID, WHAT?

AND SHE GOT UP AND WAS

WALKING AROUND, WE TOLD

HER NOT TO DO THAT BECAUSE

SHE MIGHT FALL.

WE WERE EXTREMELY HAPPY.

I KNEW MARIE BEFORE HER

HEALING, AND TO SEE HER

NOW IS UNBELIEVABLE.

BUT GOD CAN DO THAT.

Reporter: MARIE SAYS

HER ENTIRE LIFE HAS

CHANGED SINCE HER HEALING.

SHE IS NOW ACTIVELY

INVOLVED IN HEALING

MINISTRIES, AND TAKES

MISSION TRIPS TO PANAMA.

JESUS LIVING IN ME AND

THE HOLY SPIRIT DOING THE

WORK, IT'S LIKE A LOT

BETTER, DEFINITELY.

IT IS AWESOME TO SEE

WHO SHE IS NOW.

SHE ISN'T JUST SATISFIED

BEING HEALED.

SHE IS OUT MINISTERING TO

PEOPLE, AND GOD IS USING

HER.

I HAVEN'T HAD A SEIZURE

IN EIGHT YEARS.

NO MATTER WHAT THE DISEASE

OR DISORDER, JESUS IS

REAL.

HE IS OUR HEALER.

HE SAYS IT IN HIS WORD.

I BELIEVED HIM, AND I

RECEIVED IT.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

AND HE SAYS WE ARE -- NOT

YOU MIGHT BE -- WE ARE.

SO I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE

THAT.

Gordon: I HAPPEN TO

BELIEVE THAT, TOO.

BECAUSE IT'S HAPPENED TO

ME.

WHEN DOCTORS GAVE UP ON ME

WITH CEREBRAL MALARIA, GOD

CAME TO ME.

AND HE WANTS TO COME TO

YOU.

UNDERSTAND THAT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BEG AND

PLEAD WITH HIM.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO CONVINCE

HIM.

DON'T HAVE TO ARGUE WITH

HIM.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE.

IT'S VERY SIMPLE.

CHILD-LIKE FAITH.

WE GET SO COMPLICATED

THESE DAYS.

WE KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT

MEDICINE.

WE WANT TO FIND WHAT IS

THE BACTERIA OR WHAT IS

THE VIRUS, OR WHY IS THIS

HAPPENING?

KEEP IT SIMPLE.

THE ENEMY HAS COME.

AND HE IS TRYING TO

AFFLICT YOU.

BUT THE WONDERFUL NEWS IS

JESUS HAS OVERCOME HIM.

AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

BELIEVE.

AND IN THAT BELIEF WE CAN

HAVE GOD'S WILL DONE ON

EARTH, GOD'S WILL DONE IN

YOUR BODY, AS IT IS IN

HEAVEN.

IF YOU EVER WONDER IF ITS

GOD'S WILL TO HEAL YOU,

START THINKING ABOUT

HEAVEN.

IS THERE ANYBODY SICK?

IS THERE ANYBODY GRIEVING?

ANY TEARS?

ANY PROBLEMS?

WELL, THAT'S GOD'S WILL.

AND JESUS GAVE US THE

WONDERFUL PRAYER.

AND HE SAYS YOU CAN PRAY

THIS.

PRAY THAT GOD'S WILL WOULD

BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS

IN HEAVEN.

LET HIM PUT THINGS IN

ORDER FOR YOU.

LET HIM DOMINION, HIS

KINGDOM, COME TO YOU AND

BELIEVE IT.

AND LET THAT SICKNESS

LEAVE YOU NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

BEFORE WE PRAY, WE'RE

GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOME

OTHER WONDERFUL MIRACLES.

AND HERE IS SOMEBODY FROM

WEST PALM BEACH, WHO HAD

TERRIBLE PAIN IN HER MOUTH

AND HER JAW AND HER GUMS.

AND ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND TERRY SAID, YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR JAW.

THERE IS A CONSTANT ACHE.

WELL, SHE CLAIMED THE

WORD.

SHE FELT A VIBRATION IN

HER MOUTH.

SHE KNEW SHE HAD BEEN

HEALED.

THE NEXT MORNING SHE WOKE

UP WITHOUT PAIN, AND SHE

HASN'T HAD ANY TROUBLE

SINCE.

AND THAT'S WONDERFUL.

Terry: HERE IS

ANOTHER WONDERFUL ONE.

THIS IS DARYL.

HE SUFFERED WHIPLASH FROM

A CAR ACCIDENT, HAD

RECURRING PAIN FOR YEARS.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND GORDON,

YOU GAVE THIS WORD: "THERE

IS SOMEONE WITH A

MISALIGNED SPINE.

GOD IS HEALING YOU."

DARYL CLAIMED THAT WORD

THAT DAY AND ALL OF THE

PAIN LEFT, AND IT HAS NOT

RETURNED.

Gordon: WOULDN'T IT

BE WONDERFUL IF ALL OF

YOUR PAIN LEFT?

WOULDN'T THAT BE GREAT?

JESUS CAME, AND THE BIBLE

SAYS HE BORE OUR

INFIRMITIES, AND HE TOOK

AWAY OUR PAIN.

SO IF HE HAS DONE THAT

ALREADY, ALL WE HAVE TO DO

IS BELIEVE THAT AND IT

LEAVES.

SO LET'S DO THAT.

LET'S JUST HAVE THAT

CHILD-LIKE FAITH.

DADDY'S PROMISED, AND I

BELIEVE HIS PROMISE.

DADDY WILL FULFILL HIS

PROMISE FOR ME.

JUST HAVE THAT AND REST IN

THAT.

DON'T TRY TO THINK IT'S

SOME SPECIAL FORMULA, SOME

SPECIAL PRAYER.

YOU'VE GOT TO READ THE

BIBLE.

NO.

JUST BELIEVE.

AND LET GOD DO IT.

AND LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE COME TOGETHER,

AND WE COME TOGETHER IN

UNITY.

AND WE COME TOGETHER

BELIEVING IN YOUR WORD, IN

YOUR GREAT POWER.

WE LOOK AROUND US AND

REALIZE THAT ALL OF THIS

WAS CREATED BECAUSE YOU

SPOKE A WORD.

SO NOW WE COME INTO

AGREEMENT AND WE LAY HANDS

ON THAT AREA OF THE BODY

THAT NEEDS HEALING AND WE

SPEAK TO IT, THAT GOD'S

WILL WOULD BE DONE IN THIS

BODY AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

AND WE TAKE THE AUTHORITY

AND DOMINION GIVEN TO US

BY JESUS CHRIST.

WE TAKE IT, WE APPROPRIATE

IT, AND WE PUT IT TO USE

NOW, AND WE SAY, BE HEALED

AND BE MADE WHOLE.

EVERY CELL IN YOUR BODY

NOW, COME INTO AGREEMENT

WITH THE WORD OF GOD.

PAIN, LEAVE NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

CANCER, LEAVE NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

LIMBS, JOINTS, COME INTO

AGREEMENT.

MOVE PROPERLY.

WORK PROPERLY NOW.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

HAD SEVERE NERVE PAIN IN

YOUR RIGHT CHEEK, AND IT

GOES UP INTO YOUR EYE, AND

EVEN INTO THE EYELID, AND

THERE IS SWELLING.

YOU'VE GOT SEVERE PAIN.

IT JUST LEFT.

AS I WAS DESCRIBING IT, IT

JUST LEFT YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

REJOICE IN WHAT GOD HAS

GIVEN YOU.

AND CAN SMILE AGAIN.

JUST BEGIN TO PRAISE HIM

FOR IT.

REJOICE IN THE HEALING YOU

JUST RECEIVED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE A

PROBLEM WITH YOUR JAW AND

IT IS OUT OF ALIGNMENT.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT.

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A SPEECH

IMPEDIMENT, BEGIN TO SPEAK

NOW AS YOU BEGIN TO PRAISE

THE LORD.

THAT THING IS GONE.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

LIKE A SPINAL ISSUE.

TREMENDOUS PAIN EVERY TIME

YOU WALK.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH A MASS ON

THE TOP OF YOUR RIGHT

KIDNEY.

AND GOD IS JUST DISSOLVING

THAT AWAY FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW.

GO BACK AND GET TESTED,

AND REALIZE YOU'VE GOTTEN

A GREAT MIRACLE.

YOUR KIDNEY FUNCTION IS

GOING TO RETURN TO NORMAL.

IT IS GOING TO BE A BRAND

NEW KIDNEY FOR YOU.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED

NOW.

SOMEONE ELSE HAS PROBLEMS

IN YOUR RIGHT HIP, WHERE

YOU HAVE SPURS.

AND THERE IS GRINDING IN

THE JOINT.

GOD IS JUST GOING TO TAKE

THEM ALL AWAY AND GIVE YOU

BACK THAT HIP JOINT.

NO PAIN.

NO DISCOMFORT IN ANYTHING

THAT YOU DO.

JUST RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

LORD, WE THANK YOU, FOR

YOU ARE THE HEALER.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SACRIFICE.

WE THANK YOU THAT BY YOUR

STRIPES WE ARE HEALED.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

SO CALL US AND LET US

KNOW, SO WE CAN TELL

OTHERS AND ENCOURAGE

OTHERS TO BELIEVE.

1-800-759-0700.

WELL, UP NEXT, WE'VE GOT

""BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS, SO DON'T

GO AWAY.

Terry: WE WANT TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH SOME OF

THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS

YOU'VE SUBMITTED.

THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

PHYLLIS, WHO SAYS, "I JUST

HAD A MISCARRIAGE ON MAY

5th OF THIS YEAR.

IT HAPPENED SO SUDDENLY

AND MY HEART IS BROKEN.

I JUST CAN'T GET PAST THE

SADNESS.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY GOD

ALLOWS THESE THINGS TO

HAPPEN, AND I WONDER, WILL

I SEE MY CHILD SOME DAY IN

HEAVEN?"

Gordon: PHYLLIS, MY

HEART GOES OUT TO YOU.

I KNOW YOU'RE GRIEVING.

AND IT'S A TERRIBLE GRIEF.

AND WHEN I'VE COUNSELLED

PEOPLE THAT HAVE GONE

THROUGH MISCARRIAGES, YOU

JUST GRIEVE WITH THEM.

IT'S A PROCESS, AND IT'S

GOING TO TAKE TIME TO GO

THROUGH THAT.

I KNOW YOU'RE TRYING TO

ANSWER THE QUESTION WHY?

YOU KNOW, WHY DID THIS

HAPPEN?

WAS THERE SOMETHING WRONG

WITH ME?

WAS THERE SOMETHING WRONG

WITH THE BABY?

AND I HEAR IT IN YOUR

QUESTION, WHY DID GOD

ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN?

FOR ME, MY MOTHER

MISCARRIED.

I HAVE AN OLDER BROTHER

I'M GOING TO MEET ONE DAY.

HE WAS FAR ENOUGH ALONG

THAT THEY ACTUALLY HAD A

NAME.

JAMES GORDON ROBERTSON.

AND I'VE COUNTED THE

MONTHS, AND IF HE HAD GONE

TO FULL TERM, I WOULDN'T

BE HERE.

SO I OFTEN WONDER WHY?

WHY THAT?

I'M THINKING ON THIS SIDE

OF ETERNITY, WE'RE NOT

GOING TO GET THAT ANSWER.

GOD'S GREAT PLAN -- HIS

INTENT WAS FOR US TO LIVE

IN A GARDEN, AND FOR

EVERYTHING TO BE PERFECT

AND EVERYTHING TO BE

PROVIDED.

THAT WAS HIS PLAN.

AND WE MESSED THAT PLAN

UP.

AND IN THE PROCESS, THE

BIBLE SAYS ALL CREATION

WAS SUBJECT TO CORRUPTION.

AND THAT CREATION

LITERALLY GROANS FOR THE

REVELATION OF THE SONS OF

GOD.

SO WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO

THAT DAY.

AND IN THIS PRESENT

REALITY, THERE IS CHANCE,

CIRCUMSTANCE -- THE BIBLE

SAYS TIME AND CIRCUMSTANCE

HAPPEN TO US ALL.

THERE ARE RANDOM EVENTS.

JESUS EVEN SPOKE TO IT.

HE REFERRED SPECIFICALLY

TO A TOWER THAT FELL.

AND HE SAID GOD DIDN'T

CAUSE THAT.

HE SPOKE SPECIFICALLY OF

SOMEONE BEING MURDERED IN

THE TEMPLE BY ROMAN

SOLDIERS.

AND HE SAID, GOD DIDN'T

CAUSE THAT.

SO THERE IS A RANDOMNESS

TO THINGS.

AND IS GOD SOVEREIGN?

YES.

DOES HE HAVE A PLAN HE IS

WORKING OUT?

THAT'S OUR HOPE, AND IT'S

A WONDERFUL THING TO

REALIZE GOD HASN'T GIVEN

UP ON THAT DREAM, THE

DREAM OF US WITH HIM IN A

GARDEN, AND WE'RE GOING TO

ENJOY THAT ONE DAY.

JESUS SAID, "IN THIS WORLD

YOU'LL HAVE TROUBLE, BUT

BE OF GOOD CHEER BECAUSE I

HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD."

SO MY PRAYER FOR YOU IS

THAT YOU'LL HAVE A DREAM

ABOUT THAT REUNION WITH

YOUR CHILD.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE IT

AND HAVE THAT HOPE BEFORE

YOU.

Terry: THIS IS MARY

WHO SAYS, "I'M HAVING

TROUBLE FASTING AND

PRAYING.

WHEN I SET A DATE OR

DECIDE I'LL FAST TOMORROW,

WHEN TOMORROW SHOWS UP, I

EAT INSTEAD.

I NEED YOUR HELP.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

Gordon: MARY, JOIN

THE CLUB.

I'VE HAD ALL KINDS OF

40-DAY FASTS I'VE NEVER

COMPLETED.

DON'T VIEW FASTING -- BE

CAREFUL ABOUT MAKING VOWS

TO GOD.

IF YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE

COMPLETING IT, FORGIVE

YOURSELF FOR THAT.

AND SAY, LET'S TRY AGAIN.

AND REALIZE THAT GOD IS

MERCIFUL AND YOU DWELL IN

HIS GRACE.

> WE LEAVE YOU TODAY

WITH THESE WORDS FROM

PSALM 20: "MAY HE GRANT

YOU ACCORDING TO YOUR

HEART'S DESIRE AND FULFILL

ALL YOUR PURPOSES."
