There is so much going on in the world today, we have the Zika Virus, terrorist attacks, political campaigns, a refugee crisis and so much more, BUT through it all, He Cares! Read Transcript


Gordon: IT'S AN

INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC

HEALTH EMERGENCY.

THE CAUSES OF MIK OF

MICROCEPHALY CAUSES AN

EXTRAORDINARY EVENT, AND A

PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT.

Gordon: WHAT YOU NEED

TO KNOW ABOUT THIS RAPIDLY

SPREADING ILLNESS.

SCIENTISTS ARE WORKING

ON A ZIKA VACCINE, BUT IT

ISN'T EXPECTED TO BE

AVAILABLE FOR YEARS.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

HEADLINES AROUND THE WORLD

ARE ENOUGH TO MAKE ANYONE

NERVOUS.

WE'VE GOT TERRORIST

ATTACKS, WE'VE GOT THE

ZIKA VIRUS, AND WE HAVE

POLITICAL PROTESTS.

IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE ANYONE

ANXIOUS.

IT IS ENOUGH TO SAY, WHAT

DO CHRISTIANS DO IN THE

WORLD?

HOW DO WE RESPOND TODAY?

WELL, TODAY WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT THAT.

BUT, FIRST, HERE ARE SOME

OF THESE HEADLINES:

PROTESTORS AND SUPPORTERS

OF DONALD TRUMP BOTH

CLASHED IN THE STREETS OF

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA,

RECENTLY, AFTER THE G.O.P.

NOMINEE HELD A RALLY.

AND HERE IS SOME OF THE

VIDEO FROM THAT.

THERE WAS LOTS OF

PUSHING AND SHOVING AND

NAME CALLING, AND THEN

PEOPLE RUNNING EACH OTHER

DOWN ON THE STREETS.

IT'S NOT ANYTHING THAT YOU

WOULD CALL A PEACEFUL

PROTEST.

AND IF THIS IS THE

INDICATOR, AS WE GET INTO

THIS PRESIDENTIAL RACE --

HERE IT IS JUNE -- WE'VE

GOT A LONG WAY TO GO

BEFORE WE REACH NOVEMBER.

> WELL, HILLARY CLINTON

REACHED A MAJOR MILESTONE.

SHE IS THE FIRST WOMAN IN

OUR NATION'S HISTORY WHO

WILL BE A MAJOR PARTY'S

NOMINEE.

AND MANY ARE COMPLAINING

ABOUT THE CHOICES WE HAVE

FOR PRESIDENCY, BUT ONE

PASTOR SAID IT STARTS WITH

YOU.

TAKE A LOOK.

YOU CAN CHANGE THE CITY

COUNCIL.

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR SCHOOL

BOARD.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.

YOU CAN AFFECT YOUR

SCHOOLS.

YOU CAN AFFECT YOUR SPORTS

TEAMS.

YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO

AFFECT YOUR QAN KIWANAS AND

YOUR ROTARY.

QUIT WHINING.

Gordon: THAT'S ONE

TAKE ON IT.

LET'S QUIT WHINING.

LET'S GET TOGETHER AND

LET'S UNIFY AND SAY WE CAN

STILL BE A FORCE FOR

CHANGE.

IN MY VIEW OF IT, ONE OF

THE THINGS THAT HAS BEEN

RATTLING AROUND IN MY

SPIRIT FOR A COUPLE OF

YEARS NOW IS ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT GOD SAYS HE'LL

BRING ON A NATION IN

JUDGMENT IS HE WILL GO

AFTER THEIR LEADERSHIP AND

GIVE THEM CHILDREN TO BE

THEIR LEADERS.

HERE IT IS FROM ISAIAH 3:

"I WILL GIVE CHILDREN TO

BE THEIR PRINCES AND BABES

SHALL RULE OVER THEM."

"THE PEOPLE WILL BE

OPPRESSED, EVERY ONE BY

ANOTHER, AND EVERYONE BY

HIS NEIGHBOR.

THE CHILD WILL BE INSULANT

TOWARDS EACH OTHER, AND

THE BASE TOWARDS THE

HONOR."

THAT'S ONE OF THE

JUDGMENTS THAT GOD SAYS HE

WILL BRING ON A NATION

THAT NO LONGER FOLLOWS MY

WAYS.

ARE WE SEEING THAT TODAY?

WE'RE CERTAINLY SEEING

CHILDREN BEING INSULANT TO

ELDERS.

HAVE WE REACHED THE STAGE

WHERE NEIGHBOR ATTACKS

NEIGHBOR?

WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN TO THAT

POINT, BUT COULD WE IN

THIS ELECTION SEE THAT?

AND WE HAVE LEADERS, AND

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO

SCRATCH YOUR HEAD AND SAY,

DO THEY REALLY KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE DOING?

ONE OF THE MAJOR POLITICAL

DEBATES IS ABOUT

BATHROOMS.

AND WE'RE LOOKING AT

SERIOUS ISSUES REGARDLY

ISLAMIC TERRORISM,

REGARDING THE NATIONAL

DEBT, REGARDING THE

ECONOMY.

WHAT'S OUR PATH FORWARD?

DO WE HAVE CONFIDENCE IN

OUR OWN FUTURE?

THIS IS WHERE POLITICAL

LEADERS NEED TO STEP UP.

BUT INSTEAD OF THAT, WELL,

WE'RE DEBATING BATHROOMS.

> IN OTHER NEWS, TERROR

ATTACKS IN AFGHANISTAN --

THERE WAS AN AFGHAN

JOURNALIST TAMANA, AND A

VETERAN U.S. REPORTER,

DAVID GILKEY, WHO WERE

KILLED IN SOUTHERN

AFGHANISTAN THIS WEEKEND.

THEIR VEHICLE CAME UNDER

TALIBAN FIRE, AND BOTH OF

THEM WERE KILLED.

HE HAS BEEN COVERING THE

WAR FOR A LONG TIME.

HE HAS BEEN IN BOTH IRAQ,

AND DAVID HAS BEEN IN

AFGHANISTAN SINCE 9/11.

AND HE WAS DEVOTED TO

HELPING SEE OTHERS SEE THE

WAR AND THE PEOPLE CAUGHT

UP IN THEM.

AND HIS PHOTOGRAPHS ARE

FAMOUS.

THEY'VE GONE AROUND THE

WORLD.

HE IS THE FIRST CIVILIAN

AMERICAN JOURNALIST KILLED

DURING THE 15-YEAR-LONG

AFGHAN CONFLICT.

AND SINCE 1992, AT LEAST

27 JOURNALISTS HAVE BEEN

KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN.

AND WE NEED TO REMEMBER

HIM.

BUT THAT TERROR, WHAT HAS

TAKEN OVER, LAUNCHED

AGAINST THE UNITED STATES

EVEN BEFORE 9/11 -- WE

WERE SEEING TERROR ATTACKS

AGAINST THE WORLD TRADE

CENTER IN THE 1990s, AND

ALL OF IT SEEMED TO BE

FOCUSED OUT OF

AFGHANISTAN.

BUT NOW IT HAS SPRED.

IRASPREAD.IRAQ IS IN FLAMES.

SYRIA IS IN FLAMES.

ALL BECAUSE OF A RADICAL

VIEW OF ISLAM.

IT IS ONE OF THE GREATEST

REFUGEE CRISIS IN THE

HISTORY OF THE WORLD, IS

HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN

EUROPE, IN GREECE,

MACEDONIA, TURKEY, SYRIA,

LEBANON, IRAQ, JORDAN.

AND WHAT ARE WE GOING TO

DO ABOUT IT?

WELL, TO ADD TO ALL OF

THIS, WE HAVE A ZIKA

VIRUS.

AND THE SUMMER OLYMPICS

ARE GOING TO BE HELD IN

RIO, AND DOCTORS WORLDWIDE

ARE CONCERNED.

TAKE A LOOK.

TONIGHT A SHOWDOWN OVER

ZIKA.

THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION FACING OFF

AGAINST HUNDREDS OF

DOCTORS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE GOING

TO RIO, THEY HAVE THE

POTENTIAL TO BRING THE

DISEASE ALL OVER THE WORLD

IF THEY GET INFECTED

THERE.

Reporter: THOSE

DOCTORS WROTE A LETTER,

CALLING FOR THE GAMES TO

BE MOVED OR POSTPONED,

SAYING THAT THE ZIKA VIRUS

IS AN UNNECESSARY RISK TO

THE HALF MILLION TOURISTS

EXPECTED TO DESCEND ON THE

COUNTRY, 200,000 OF THOSE

FROM THE U.S.

THE W.H.O. HAS ADVISED

PREGNANT WOMEN TO AVOID

TRAVELLING TO BRAZIL, BUT

SAYS THE GAMES SHOULD

CONTINUE.

WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO

WORK TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE

AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE.

Reporter: THERE ARE

MORE THAN 100,000 CASES OF

ZIKA VIRUS IN BRAZIL, WITH

A THIRD OF THOSE IN RIO,

AND FUNDING TO FIGHT ZIKA

VIRUS WAS RECENTLY CUL CUT BY

20%.

BUT THE MAYOR SAYS IT IS

NOT A CONCERN.

I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO

HAS THE VIRUS, AND I KNOW

A LOT OF PEOPLE.

THIS IS NOT A BIG ISSUE.

Reporter: SOME HAVE

NO INTENTIONS OF ALLOWING

ZIKA VIRUS TO STOP THEM

FROM GOING FOR THE GOLD.

THERE IS NO TURNING BACK

FOR YOU GUYS?

NO.

THIS IS SOMETHING I'VE

BEEN WORKING FOR SO LONG,

AND I WANT TO GO AND

COMPETE.

Gordon: GABBY DOUGLAS

SAYS THE ZIKA VIRUS

WOULDN'T CURB HER PLAN TO

PURSUE THE OLYMPICS.

SHE SAID, I'M GOING.

THIS IS MY SHOT.

I DON'T CARE ABOUT NO

STUPID BUGS.

BUT SOME U.S. ATHLETES,

INCLUDING SOCCER STAR HOPE

SOLO, HAS EXPRESSED

CONCERNED ABOUT TRAVELLING

TO RIO.

AND HOPE RECENTLY SAID,

I'M GOING TO TAKE EVERY

PRECAUTION NECESSARY.

I'M NOT SURE I'M EVEN

GOING TO BE LEAVING THE

HOTEL ROOM OUTSIDE OF

PRACTICE.

AND ANOTHER SAID, HE WILL

NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE

GAMES AT ALL BECAUSE HIS

FAMILY TAKES PRIORITY.

WE'VE GOT SOME REPORTERS,

AS WELL.

TODAY SHOW ANCHOR SUSANNA

GUNTHIRY SAID, I'M NOT

GOING TO BE ABLE TO GO TO

RIO, SO YOU'LL HAVE TO GO

TO BEACH VOLLEYBALL

WITHOUT ME.

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE

CAMPAIGN SEASON.

AND RIO WOULD HAVE BEEN

THE THIRD OF THE OLYMPICS

FOR SAVANNAH.

AND THE "TODAY SHOW" SAID

EMPLOYEES CONCERNED ABOUT

TRAVELLING TO RIO ARE NOT

REQUIRED TO GO.

NOW, THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION HAS DECLARED

ZIKA VIRUS A GLOBAL HEALTH

EMERGENCY.

A BABY GIRL WAS BORN IN

NEW JERSEY AND HER MOTHER

WAS IN HONDURAS.

THERE ARE OVER 600 CASES

OF THE ZIKA VIRUS IN THE

U.S., ALL SEEMED TO BE

TRAVEL-ASSOCIATED CASES.

AND THAT'S WHY THE WORLD

HEALTH ORGANIZATION AND

THESE DOCTORS ARE GETTING

TOGETHER AND SAYING, HAVE

SECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT

GOING TO THE OLYMPICS.

BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

SOMEBODY INFECTED WITH THE

ZIKA VIRUS COMES BACK TO

THEIR HOME COUNTRY, AND A

MOSQUITO BITES THEM?

WELL, THAT'S THE VECTOR.

THAT'S WHAT CAUSES THE

SPREAD.

AND SO IF YOU BRING THE

ZIKA VIRUS HOME, YOU'RE

ACTUALLY HELPING THE

SPREAD OF THIS VIRUS.

AND THE MORE RESEARCHERS

LEARN ABOUT IT, THE

SCARIER IT APPEARS.

LORIE JOHNSON HAS THE

BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU NEED

TO KNOW ABOUT THIS

RAPIDLY-SPREADING DISEASE.

Lorie: THE WORLD

HEALTH ORGANIZATION

DECLARED THE MOSQUITO

MOSQUITO-BORNE ZIKA VIRUS

AN INTERNATIONAL HEALTH

EMERGENCY.

IN SOUTH AMERICA, IT IS

LINKED TO APPROXIMATELY

4,000 DEVASTATING BIRTH

DEFECTS, MAINLY

MICROCEPHALY, WHICH CAUSES

BABIES TO BE BORN WITH

ABNORMALLY SMALL HEADS.

AFTER A REVIEW OF THE

EVIDENCE, THE COMMITTEE

ADVISED THAT THE CHANCES

OF MICROCEPHALY AND OTHER

NEUROLOGICAL COMPLICATIONS

CONSTITUTED AN

EXTRAORDINARY EVENT AND A

PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT TO

OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD.

Lorie: THE W.H.O.

HOPES TO RAISE AWARENESS

AND SCIENTIFIC

UNDERSTANDING ABOUT A

DISEASE THAT APPEARS TO

ONLY HARM BABIES BORN TO

WOMEN WHO CONTRACT IT

DURING PREGNANCY.

IN FACT, WOMEN IN SOME

AFFECTED AREAS ARE BEING

ADVISED NOT TO BECOME

PREGNANT FOR UP TO TWO

YEARS.

SCIENTISTS ARE WORKING ON

A ZIKA VACCINE, BUT IT

ISN'T EXPECTED TO BE

AVAILABLE FOR YEARS.

THAT MEANS FOR NOW, THE

BEST WAY TO PREVENT

GETTING ZIKA IS TO AVOID

BEING BITTEN BY A

MOSQUITO.

THE OUTBREAK IS CURRENTLY

CENTERED IN CENTRAL

AMERICA.

THE C.D.C. CAUTIONS TO

AVOID PLACES LIKE MEXICO

AND THE CARRIBEAN.

AND THEY SAY IT IS

POSSIBLE, EVEN LIKELY,

THAT WE WILL SEE LIMITED

ZIKA OUTBREAKS IN THE

U.S., AND RECOMMEND

EXPECTANT MOTHERS WEAR

LONG SLEEVES, LONG PANTS,

USE INSECT REPELLENT,

SCREENS, AND AIR

CONDITIONING.

CBN'S "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS ON THE GROUND IN

INFECTED AREAS, TRYING TO

MINIMIZE THE INFECTION IN

A NUMBER OF WAYS.

IN EL SALVADOR, THEY

CANVAS THE NEIGHBORHOODS,

SPRAYING FOR MOSQUITOS,

AND THEY DISTRIBUTE

MOSQUITO NETS TO PREGNANT

WOMEN.

WE'RE WORKING WITH OUR

PARTNERS, THE MAYO CLINIC,

TO PRODUCE PUBLIC SERVICE

ANNOUNCEMENTS, AND THAT

WILL AIR ON EL SALVADOR

TV.

Lorie: AND "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS ALSO

EDUCATING PEOPLE IN PERSON

ABOUT THE DANGERS OF

STANDING WATER BECOMING

BREEDING GROUNDS FOR

MOSQUITOS CARRYING THE

ZIKA VIRUS.

Gordon: WE'RE ALL

GOING TO GET EDUCATED

ABOUT MOSQUITOS OVER THE

NEXT FEW MONTHS AS THIS

ZIKA VIRUS LOOKS TO BE

VERY SERIOUS, AND A DIRECT

LINK TO SOME VERY SERIOUS

BIRTH DEFECTS.

SO WE NEED TO PROTECT

OURSELVES FROM IT.

NOW, WHAT DOES THE BIBLE

SAY ABOUT ALL OF THIS.

AND WHEN YOU SEE ALL OF

THESE KINDS OF HEADLINES,

YOU SEE POLITICAL

PROTESTS.

YOU SEE ONE OF THE

CRAZIEST PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTIONS IN MY LIFETIME

IN THE UNITED STATES.

YOU SEE THE HORROR OF

TERROR, AND COULD THERE BE

YET ANOTHER TERROR ATTACK

WITHIN OUR BORDERS?

AND THEN THIS ZIKA

VIRUS -- WHAT DO WE DO

WITH ALL OF THESE THINGS?

WELL, HERE IS A WORD FOR

YOU FROM 1 PETER:

"THEREFORE, HUMBLE

YOURSELVES UNDER THE

MIGHTY HAND OF GOD, THAT

HE MAY EXALT YOU IN DUE

TIME, CASTING ALL YOUR

CARE UPON HIM, FOR HE

CARES FOR YOU."

REALIZE THAT.

LET'S BE SMART ABOUT

CERTAIN THINGS.

LET'S BE SMART ABOUT OUR

TRAVEL.

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO GO

TO A ZIKA-INFESTED AREA?

LET'S BE SMART ABOUT

TERRORISM.

LITIELET'S BE SMART ABOUT OUR

PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS.

BUT IN ALL OF THIS, LET'S

REMEMBER, HUMBLE OURSELVES

BEFORE GOD.

BECAUSE IN GOD'S EYES,

THESE AREN'T BIG PROBLEMS.

THESE ARE LITTLE PROBLEMS.

IF WE HUMBLE OURSELVES AND

PRAY, CAST ALL OF THESE

CARES UPON HIM, HE WILL

CARE FOR US.

> WELL, COMING UP, SEE

HOW THESE LITTLE FISH

MIGHT BE MEXICO'S BEST

DEFENSE AGAINST THE ZIKA

VIRUS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT,

SO STAY WITH US.

Gordon: AS YOU HEARD

EARLIER, CBN'S OPBLESSING

HAS BEEN WORKING IN

SEVERAL COUNTRIES TO

DESTROY MOSQUITOS BY

TARGETING THEIR LARVAE.

HERE IS ONE CREATIVE WAY

THEY'RE TARGETING IT IN

MEXICO.

Reporter: THIS IS

SCOTT HILL, AND WE'RE IN

GERREDO, MEXICO, AND THERE

HAVE BEEN CASES OF THE

ZIKA VIRUS.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS TACKLING THE ZIKA VIRUS

IN THIS REGION AND

THROUGHOUT LATIN-AMERICA.

AND ONE OF THE WAYS WE DO

THAT IS WITH FISH.

LITTLE GAMBUZIA THAT EAT

THE LARVAE OF THE MOSQUITO

IN STAGNANT PLACES OF

WATER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

GIVING THESE

MOSQUITO-EATING FISH TO

DIFFERENT WOMEN IN THIS

AREA, WORKING WITH THE

MINISTRY OF HEALTH.

AND WE'RE PUTTING IN THOSE

STAGNANT AREAS SO THAT THE

MOSQUITOS CAN'T REPLICATE

THERE.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

SEEN GREAT SUCCESS NOT

ONLY HERE, BUT IN OTHER

PARTS OF LATIN-AMERICA

WITH THIS STRATEGY.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO

TO HELP "OPERATION

BLESSING" TACKLE THIS

ISSUE AND MANY MORE

THROUGHOUT THE REGION OF

LATIN-AMERICA.

Gordon: WELL,

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

THE NOT JUST USING THOSE

FISH, THEY'RE ALSO USING

TURTLES.

AND THESE TURTLES CAN EAT

UP TO 2,000 LARVAE A DAY

AND ARE BEING PUT IN AND

AROUND PILAS IN MEXICO AND

HONDURAS.

THAT IS A CONCRETE WATER

STORAGE TANK, AND IT IS

USED IN A LOT OF

LATIN-AMERICAN COUNTRIES.

YOU CAN SEE IT IN THE

BACKGROUND THERE, AND

FAMILIES USE THESE FOR

THEIR DAILY WATER.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

WORKING HARD TO FIGHT ZIKA

IN OTHER WAYS, TOO, BY

DISTRIBUTING MOSQUITO NETS

AND BIG SPRAYS TO INSPECT

EXPECTANT MOTHERS.

AND THEY'RE GOING DOOR TO

DOOR, EDUCATING RESIDENTS

ON HOW TO ELIMINATE THIS

VIRUS.

THOSE MOSQUITOS HAVE A LOT

OF FAVORITE HIDING PLACES,

AND WE'RE TEACHING PEOPLE

THE BEST WAYS TO FIGHT

BACK AND HOW TO CLEAN UP

MOSQUITO BREEDING SITES,

AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF

THAT.

> WELL, STILL TO COME, A

HORSE TRAINER INJURIES HIS

BACK CLEANING THE BARN.

WHEN I LIFTED IT UP, I

HEARD A BIG POP AND FELT A

BIG, SHARP PAIN IN THE

LOWER BACK.

VERY SHORTLY AFTER THAT, I

STARTED DEVELOPING A SHARP

PAIN DOWN THE BACK OF MY

LEG.

Gordon: SEE HOW THIS

MAN'S PAIN VANISHES IN AN

INSTANT, RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: JESSE HAS

SPENT A LIFETIME TRAINING

HORSES, BUT NOT LONG AGO,

HE THOUGHT HIS RIDING DAYS

WERE OVER.

A BACK INJURY THREATENED

TO KEEP JESSE OUT OF THE

SADDLE FOR GOOD, UNTIL THE

DAY HIS WIFE TURNED ON THE

TV.

Reporter: JESSE HAS

BEEN TRAINING HORSES FOR

OVER 30 YEARS.

ONE DAY HE WAS CLEANING

OUT THE STALLS AND PUTTING

MANURE INTO THE BINS.

I GOT TO THE SIXTH OR

SEVENTH ONE WHEN I LIFTED

IT UP, AND I HEARD A BIG

POP AND FELT A SHARP PAIN

IN THE LOWER BACK.

Reporter: WHEN HE

GOTHEIGOTHOME, HE SHOWED HIS WIFE.

I LOOKED AT HIS WIFE

AND SAW IT WAS A LITTLE

SWOLLEN.

VERY SHORTLY AFTER

THAT, I STARTED DEVELOPING

A PAIN DOWN MY LEG.

I WENT TO THE DOCTOR, AND

THE DOCTOR GAVE ME AN

EXAMINATION, AND HE SAID

IT LOOKS LIKE YOU SEVERELY

HURT THAT MUSCLE BACK

THERE AND YOU MAY HAVE A

PINCHED NERVE.

Reporter: THE DOCTOR

PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS FOR

PAIN AND SWELLING, BUT

THEY ONLY WORKED

TEMPORARILY.

SO I WENT BACK TO THE

DOCTOR, AND SHE SAID, I

THINK WE NEED TO TAKE THIS

IS LITTLE FURTHER.

YOU NEED TO SEE A

SPECIALIST.

Reporter: AN M.R.I.

SHOWED JESSE HAD A BULGING

DISC.

HE COULD HAVE SURGERY OR

MEDICATIONS, SO HE OPTED

FOR THE MEDICATIONS.

BUT IT WAS GETTING WORSE.

IT FELT LIKE A KNIFE IN

THE BACK OF MY THIGH AT

EACH STEP.

IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE

I COULDN'T DRIVE, COULDN'T

WALK EVEN SHORT DISTANCES.

Reporter: JESSE WENT

BACK TO THE SPECIALIST AND

MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR

SURGERY.

THAT WAS A REALLY,

REALLY DIFFICULT TIME.

BECAUSE I HAD TO WRESTLE

WITH NOT ONLY BEING ABLE

TO ENJOY RIDING, WHICH I

HAD DONE FOR 30 YEARS, I

WAS WRESTLING ALMOST WITH

MOMY MORTALITY.

Reporter: DURING THIS

TIME, CHARMAINE HAD BEEN

PRAYING FOR HER HUSBAND.

I HAD FAITH HE WOULD

GET BETTER.

Reporter: ONE DAY SHE

CAME HOME AND TURNED ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

GORDON AND TERRY WERE

HAVING WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE

FOR VIEWERS.

I'M THINKING, I'M NOT

REALLY SURE I BELIEVE THAT

PEOPLE BELIEVE THESE KINDS

OF HEALINGS, BUT WHAT HAVE

I GOT TO LOSE BY GIVING IN

AND GIVING IT A TRY.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A PINCHED

NERVE IN YOUR BACK.

I PUT MY HAND ON MY

BACK AND LET MYSELF BE

IMMERSED INTO PRAYER.

Gordon: GOD IS

HEALING THAT.

THERE IS NUMBNESS AND

PAIN, AND WEAKNESS, AND

GOD IS RESTORING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

IT WAS A CALMING THING

THAT CAME OVER ME THAT

MADE ME FEEL REALLY GOOD

AND WARM ARE FOR THE FIRST

TIME RELIEVED.

HE DID NOT IMMEDIATELY

SHARE IT WITH ME.

AND WHEN HE FINALLY SHARED

IT WITH ME, I WAS, LIKE,

HALLELUJAH, YOU'RE HEALED.

HE HAD SURGERY SCHEDULED,

AND I SAID, CANCEL THE

SURGERY.

Reporter: JESSE TOOK

A LITTLE MORE CONVINCING.

I REALLY FELT LIKE THIS

WOULD COME BACK.

Reporter: THAT

CHANGED THE DAY OF THE

SURGERY.

I SAID TO THE

ANESTHESIOLOGY, AND I SAID

I DON'T THINK HE NEEDS

SURGERY TODAY.

AND HE SAID, I GUARANTEE

HE IS NOT GOING TO BE

HEALED LIKE THAT.

IT WOULD BE THROUGH

MEDICINES AND THROUGH

TREATMENTS LIKE THIS.

SO WHEN THE DOCTOR CAME

IN, HE BEGAN TO EXAMINE

HIM, DID SOME TESTS, AND

HE LOOKED AT HIM AND SAID,

WHY ARE YOU HAVING SURGERY

TODAY?

AND I CLAPPED MY HANDS AND

DID LIKE THIS BECAUSE THAT

WAS CONFIRMATION TO HIM.

ONCE I HEARD IT FROM

THE DOCTOR SAYING, MAYBE

WE SHOULDN'T DO THIS

SURGERY, I REALLY

RECOGNIZED BY BLESSINGS

AND THAT I'D BEEN HEALED.

Reporter: JESSE GOT

BACK IN THE SADDLE AS SOON

AS HE COULD.

TODAY HE IS STILL RIDING

AND STILL PAIN-FREE.

YOU KNOW, I HAVE

CHALLENGES, WHERE I'M,

LIKE, GOD, I WANT IT NOW,

BUT WE HAVE TO WAIT ON

GOD'S PERFECT TIMING

BECAUSE HIS TIMING IS

ALWAYS BEST.

Gordon: I LOVE THIS

STORY.

HERE IS JESSE.

HE HAS GOT PAIN.

IT'S DIFFICULT FOR HIM TO

WALK.

AND THEN IT BECOMES

DIFFICULT FOR HIM TO

DRIVE.

EVERY STEP, HE HAS A STAB

OF PAIN IN HIS THIGH.

AND SO HE IS WATCHING A

SHOW, A TV SHOW, THAT SAYS

GOD HEALS TODAY, THAT

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

THAT HE IS THE MESSIAH.

HE IS THE PREEXISTING ONE.

HE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA.

HE DOESN'T CHANGE.

WHAT HE DID 2,000 YEARS

AGO, HE IS STILL DOING

TODAY, AND HE WANTS TO DO

IT.

AND HE WANTS TO DO IT FOR

YOU.

HE WANTS TO HEAL HIS

CHILDREN.

AND JESS SEE I JESSE IS WATCHING AND

SAYING, I DON'T KNOW IF I

CAN BELIEVE THIS.

IT JUST SEEMS SO

OUTLANDISH, SO OUTSIDE MY

NORMAL.

WHAT HAPPENS HERE?

HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?

FAITH IS BELIEVING, AND

IT'S BELIEVING AGAINST ALL

THE ODDS.

IT'S BELIEVING TO THE

POINT WHERE YOU SAY, YES,

THAT'S FOR ME.

I CAN RELY ON THAT.

AND WITH JESSE, HE GOT

HEALED AND HE IS STILL

GOING INTO SURGERY.

HE IS STILL HAVING IT.

AND THEY HAVE THIS

CONVERSATION WITH THE

ANESTHESIOLOGY.

WELL, THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

IF HE'S GOING TO GET

HEALED, IT WILL BE THROUGH

MEDICINE.

AND THEN A DOCTOR COMES IN

AND HE STARTS DOING THE

SAME TESTS HE WENT THROUGH

BEFORE.

AND SUDDENLY JESSE IS

RESPONDING IN A WHOLE

DIFFERENT WAY BECAUSE GOD

WANTS TO HEAL HIS

CHILDREN.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY,

BUT WE'VE GOT SOME OTHER

PRAISE REPORTS THAT HAVE

COME IN ON OUR Facebook

PAGE.

JULIUS WRITES TO US AND

SAYS, "OUR DEAR LORD HAS

ANSWERED YOUR PRAYERS.

I ASKED FOR MY DAUGHTER

AND SON-IN-LAW TO LEAVE

THE SHIP THEY'RE ON, AND

THEY'RE LEAVING THE SHIP

TODAY.

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR

THEM."

WILSON SAYS, "I WAS ABUSED

AS A CHILD, AND IT

DESTROYED MY EMOTIONS AND

SELF-ESTEEM.

THE LORD HAS HEALED ALL OF

THAT BROKENNESS."

AND THEN WE HAVE SOME

PRAYER REQUESTS.

EDWINA WRITES, "PLEASE

PRAY FOR MY HUSBAND TO GET

A JOB, FOR DIVINE HEALING

FOR MY DAUGHTER, WHO'S HAS

DISEASE."

AND SCOTT WRITES IN,

"PLEASE PRAY FOR MY BEST

FRIEND RANDY, WHO HAS

TERMINAL CANCER, GIVEN SIX

MONTHS TO LIVE."

LET'S PRAY.

LET'S PRAY FOR YOU.

IF YOU NEED A HEALING,

LIKE JESSE, TAKE A CHANCE.

LAY YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING, AND WE'LL AGREE.

WE'LL PRAY RIGHT NOW FOR

YOU.

LORD, WE LIFT THOSE WHO

ARE HURTING RIGHT NOWMENT

ANNOW.AND WE JUST ASK THAT YOU

COME TO THEM AND YOU

REVEAL YOURSELF TO THEM,

JUST AS YOU DID WITH

JESSE.

AND THAT A WARMTH AND A

COMFORT THAT YOU'RE

HEALING THEM WOULD BE WITH

THEM RIGHT NOW.

TRUDY, FOR HER KNEE

SURGERY, AND ERIKA WITH

THE HEART DISEASE -- WE

LIFT THESE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND WE DECLARE OVER THEM

BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS

CHRIST, THEY WERE HEALED,

THEY ARE HEALED NOW.

LET THE POWER OF GOD COME

TO THEM.

STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND TO

DO MIRACLES, LORD, FOR WE

ASK IT IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

GOT THE SAME BACK PROBLEM

JESSE HAD.

YOU'RE LAYING YOUR HAND ON

IT.

GOD IS HEALING YOU RIGHT

NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE

HAVE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

WORD FROM 1 PETER: "CAST

ALL YOUR ANXIETY ON HIM

BECAUSE HE CARES FOR
