*> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN

NEWSWATCH.

I'M CAITLIN BURKE. THIS

MAYBE THE

FIRST DAY OF SUMMER, BUT

THE HEAT IS

RAGING ON AND THE WILDFIRES

ARE ONLY

ADDING TO THE MISERY.

Efrem: PEOPLE ACROSS THE

SOUTHWEST

ARE FEELING THE HEAT WITH

TEMPERATURES RECORDS OVER

100

DEGREES. IN CALIFORNIA AND

ARIZONA

THE RECORD TEMPERATURES

AREN'T

EASING UP WITH TEMPERATURES

OVER

BOILING READINGS.

WE DON'T HAVE HURRICANES

BUT THE

HEAT IS OUR DISASTER.

IN ARIZONA, THIS

25-YEAR-OLD

ANTHONY CATELA DIED

SATURDAY.

AND A 20-YEAR-OLD WOMAN

BECAME

UNRESPONSIVE WHILE MOUNTAIN

BIKING

WITH FRIENDS.

FIREFIGHTERS TRIED TO

RESCUE HER,

BUT SHE DIED AT THE

HOSPITAL.

THIS DEADLY REALITY HAS

EVEN

CHILDREN PAYING ATTENTION

TO WARNING

SIGNS.

WHEN YOU DRINK WATER,

THAT

PREVENTS FROM YOU GETTING A

HEADACHE.

TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT FORCED

SOME

AIRLINES TO COME IN FLIGHT

SUNDAY

BECAUSE AT 120 DEGREES, THE

AIR IS

SO THIN, IT CREATES LIFT

PROBLEMS

FOR AIRPLANES.

THE HEAT WAVE FROM SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA TO MISSOURI IS

BEARING

DOWN ON AMERICANS.

POTENTIALLY RIGHT

THROUGH THE END

OF THE MONTH.

ON TOP OF THAT, RAGING

WILDFIRES,

MORE THAN A DOZEN LARGE

INFERNOS ARE

BURNING ACROSS THE STATE

INCLUDING

CALIFORNIA WHERE AT LEAST

2-DOZEN

HOMES HAVE BEEN LOST AND

MILLIONS OF

ACRES BURNED ALREADY.

LAWMAKERS ARE VOTING ON

GUN

CONTROL TODAY. DEMOCRATS

WANT TO

EXPAND BACKGROUND CHECKS OF

SUSPECTED TERRORIST.

INSTEAD THEY PLAN TO BRING

THEIR OWN

ALTERNATE PLANS TO THE

TABLE BUT

EXPECTED TO BLOCK THOSE

FROM

PASSING.

THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED

STATES IS LIKELY TO APPOINT

SEVERAL

SUPREME COURT JUSTICES.

JUSTICE THOMAS IS

CONSIDERING

RETIRING AFTER THE

PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTION IN NOVEMBER. IT

WILL BE THE

CONTROL OF THE COURT AS THE

NEXT

PRESIDENT IS EXPECTED TO

IMMEDIATELY

REPLACE THE SEAT OF ANTHONY

SCALIA.

THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IN

THE COURT

WOULD CONTINUE.

IF HILLARY CLINTON WINS,

SHE COULD

GET THE CHANCE TO FLIP TWO

REPUBLICAN SEATS.

THE JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN

MEDICAL

ASSOCIATION IS REFUSING TO

RETRACT A

STUDY THEY PUBLISHED ABOUT

WHEN AN

UNBORN CHILD FEELS PAIN.

THIS HAS BEEN DECIDED BY

THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY.

THE GENERAL MEDICAL

ASSOCIATION

IS REFUSING TO STUDY ABOUT

FETAL

PAIN.

THE STUDY CONCLUDED UNBORN

BABIES DO

NOT FEEL PAIN BEFORE 29

WEEKS INSIDE

THE MOTHER'S WOMB. THIS IS

SUPPORTED

BY LATE TERM ABORTIONS.

THIS IS CAUSING FOR A

RETRACTION BY

BOTH SCIENTIFIC

CONSIDERATIONS.

THOSE WHO REQUESTED THE

TRACTION SAY

THE AUTHORS OF THE STUDY

FAIL TO

DISCLOSE THE DIRECT LINK TO

THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY.

THE AUTHOR RELEASES NO

FINANCIAL

DISCLOSURES. ONE WAS A

MEDICAL

DIRECTOR OF THE ABORTION

CLINIC, ONE

SERVED AS AN ATTORNEY AND

ANOTHER

ALSO WORKED AT AN ABORTION

CLINIC.

SHE SAYS THE INFORMATION

WE HAVE

THAT CONFLICTS WITH THE

REQUIREMENTS

IN 2005.

FURTHERMORE REFUTD THE

CONCLUSION

THAT A DEVELOPED CEREBRAL

CORTEX IS

ABLE TO FEEL PAIN.

WITH THE SCIENTIFIC

MEDICAL

JOURNALS SAYS IT'S

ABSOLUTELY

NONSENSE.

YOU DO NOT NEED YOUR

CEREBRAL CORTEX

TO BE CONSCIOUS.

THESE CHILDREN ABSOLUTELY

THEY ARE

CONSCIOUS, THEY SMILE, SOME

THINGS

MAKE THEM UNHAPPY, MAKE

THEM CRY, IN

FACT THEY ARE SO NORMAL

THAT YOU

DON'T KNOW THEY HAVE THE

CONDITION

UNTIL MONTHS LATER WHEN

MILESTONES

ARE MISSED.

THEY SAY THAT WILL THE

THEY MAY

ADD TO THE TOPIC OR PROPOSE

ALTERNATIVE THEORIES, THAT

NEW

INFORMATION DOES NOT

REQUIRE

RETRACTION OF PREVIOUS

REVIEWED

ARTICLES.

WILL -- ALTHOUGH THE

MEDICAL

COMMUNITY IS NOT UNITED ON

WHEN A

CHILD FEELS PAIN, IT'S

CONCURRED AT

20 WEEKS.

THAT'S WHY THEY PASSED

THE THE

CHILD PROTECTION ACT TO

WHEN THEY

FEEL PAIN AFTER 20 WEEKS.

> TRUMP SAID TERRORISM

SHOULD BE

PROFILED FOR MUSLIMS

ENTERING THE

U.S. AND TO TEMPORARILY BAN

MUSLIMS

FROM ENTERING THE U.S..

COMING UP, THE GREAT

REPUBLICAN

DILEMMA.

WHETHER OR NOT TO SUPPORT

THE

PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE.

WHY SOME ARE SUPPORTING

TRUMP AND

OTHERS WON'T.

OTHERS WON'T.

WILL REPUBLICANS RALLY

BEHIND

DONALD TRUMP.

THAT'S THE BILLION DOLLAR

QUESTION.

RIGHT NOW IT DOESN'T LOOK

GOOD. A

STUDY SHOWS 70% OF

AMERICANS DON'T

LIKE HIM AND FROM

POLARIZING IMPACTS

AS FAR AS THE UNITED

NATIONS.

SUCH AS WHAT IN THE

WORLD TO DO

WITH HIM.

SENATOR MITCH McCONNELL

SAYS HE'S

HOPEFUL.

I THINK HE WILL BE

CONSTRAINED BY

THE NATURE OF THE PARTY

THAT'S GOING

TO BACK HIM FOR PRESIDENT.

BUT WHEN HE CRITICIZES

FELLOW

REPUBLICANS LIKE NEW MEXICO

GOVERNOR

SUSANNA MARTINEZ.

SHE HAS TO DO A BETTER

JOB.

THE TASK HAS TO BECOME

MORE

DIFFICULT.

I THINK HE NEEDS TO STOP

THAT.

I THINK HE HAS A BETTER

CHANCE OF

WINNING IN NOVEMBER IF HE

WOULD QUIT

DOING THAT.

ESPECIALLY WHEN WE ARE

TRYING TO

UNIFY THE PARTY.

THIS HAS LED MANY

PRESIDENTS TO

THE TO DO LIST, ALONG WITH

JOHN

MCCAIN.

STILL NUMBERS SHOW DONALD

TRUMP'S

POINT IN THE CAMPAIGN TO

PASS ON

NOMINEES.

FROM 2003 TO 2012, BUSH AND

ROMNEY,

HELD 80% OF THE GOP AMONG

THE

NOMINATION.

DONALD TRUMP RIGHT NOW, A

SOLID 85%.

THEY SEE HILLARY CLINTON AS

A FAR

WORSE ALTERNATIVE.

IN LIFE YOU DON'T GET A

CHOICE

BETWEEN LIKE AND AWFUL.

IT'S ALL

AWFUL.

THERE IS A SLUGFEST

BETWEEN THE

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES.

THIS MAN IS A

PATHOLOGICAL LIAR.

THAT GAVE LEGITIMACY TO

THE TALKS

OF THE CONVENTION.

WHILE THAT GOES ON.

IN ALL OF MY YEARS AS

THE

LEGISLATURE FOR SENATOR, I

HAVE

NEVER SEEN SUCH TURMOIL.

DELICATESSEN HERE IN THE

U.S.

VIRGIN ISLANDS, ONE OF THE

SMALLEST

REPUBLICAN PARTIES IN THE

ENTIRE US

IS ACTUALLY LIVING OUT A

LARGER THAN

LIFE SOAP OPERA WITH UTTER

CONFUSION, NAME CALLING AND

VIOLENCE.

TEMPERS GOT SO HIGH AT THIS

MEETING

THAT GUNS WERE EVEN AT THE

READY FOR

THIS CENTER AROUND THIS MAN.

IN THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

DELICATESSEN ARE ALL

UNBOUND MEANING

THEY CAN VOTE FOR ANY

CANDIDATE THEY

WANT AND HAVE MAXIMUM

LEVERAGE.

SO HE MOVED HIS FAMILY DOWN

HERE TO

HAVE MAXIMUM INFLUENCE TO

ANY

CONTEST.

THE LOCALS SAY JOHN IS

USING THE

VIRGIN ISLANDS AND TRYING

TO BLOCK

HIM FROM THE CONVENTION.

SOMEONE IS LASHING OUT

AND BEING

A SORE LOSER. IT'S

UNFORTUNATE FROM

BEING A SORE LOSER TO

THREATS AND

INTIMIDATION.

HE ADMITS THAT GOP UNITY

HERE IS

PROBLEMATIC.

WE HAVE SOME DAMAGE OVER

NIGHT.

IF YOU LISTEN TO THE

NATIONAL

CHAIRMAN, ALL HE TALKS

ABOUT IS

UNITY. HIS QUOTE WAS "UNITY

CAN MAKE

IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE".

WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO

PUT THE

GOP ON THE UNITED FRONT.

WILL A PHOTO IN CLEVELAND

MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

SOME KIND OF VIGIL IS

IMPORTANT.

HE REPORTS ON SOMETHING

MORE

IMPORTANT THAN THE VIGIL.

IF TRUMP DECIDES TO TALK

ABOUT

BIG ISSUES AS FAR AS JOBS

CREATED

WHERE ONLY ONE JOB FOR

8,000

AMERICANS, THOSE KINDS OF

THINGS

WILL MAKE IT EASIER TO

UNIFY THE

PARTY.

TRUMP MAKES IT DIFFICULT

BY

BRINGING UP MEXICANS AND

THE

LAWSUIT. IT PUTS PAUL RYAN

ON A

TOUGH SPOT.

CLAIMING A PERSON CAN'T

DO A JOB

BECAUSE OF A RACE IS A

RACIST

COMMENT.

FIRE AFTER FIRE WITH

EVEN ALL THE

CHARRED EARTH, MANY OF THE

GOP HAVE

NO CHOICE BUT TO UNITE.

WE DROPPED THE BOMB OVER

JAPAN.

WHY, BECAUSE THE CONTEXT

MORALLY

DEMANDED IT.

THE MORAL DEMAND IN OUR

TIME OF

AMERICA IS TO DEFEAT THE

LEFT.

IN THE END, THAT MAYBE

TRUMP'S

SAVING GRACE.

> UP NEXT, IT WAS THE

HEALTHIER

CITY IN THE WORLD AND

HOPING TO

RECLAIM THE TITLE.

MEET THE MAN WHO IS

STARTING THIS

REVIVAL.

FEW PEOPLE TODAY HAVE

HEARD OF

HIM, BUT HE HAD A PROFOUND

INFLUENCE

ON THE MINISTRY HERE IN THE

ON THE MINISTRY HERE IN THE

UNITED

STATES. HIS NAME WAS JOHN G

LAKES.

HIS LEGACY LIVES ON TODAY

WITH THE

REOPENING OF THE HEALING

ROOM IN

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON.

AT THE AGE OF 16, JOHN G

LAKE

GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST IN

AN ARMY

REVIVAL MEETING. HE MOVED

TO AFRICA

AND BEGAN A POWERFUL

MINISTRY.

HE RETURNED TO THE U.S. AND

SETTLED

DOWN IN SPOKANE,

WASHINGTON, AND

OPENED A HEALING ROOMING

WHERE

PEOPLE COULD PRAISE GOD. HE

REPORTED

OVER 1,000 HEALINGS.

HE REPORTED AS NOT ONLY THE

HEALTHIER CITY IN AMERICA

BUT IN THE

WORLD.

HE TALKS ABOUT THE TRUTH

OF GOD

AND GOD WAS ABLE TO AND

WILLING TO

HEAL.

IN THE MID-1990s AFTER A

CALIFORNIA DEVELOPER, HE

WAS

PREPARED FOR RETIRING, BUT

GOD

SHOWED HIM ANOTHER PLAN FOR

HIS

LIFE.

FINALLY IN HIS PLANS,

GOD SHOWED

HIM THAT SPIRIT AND TO OPEN

THAT

WELL AFTER 80 YEARS AND

THAT'S WHAT

WE DID.

THE HEALING ROOMS CLOSED

IN 1995

AND REOPENED THE HEALING

ROOMS

EVENTUALLY RELOCATED IT TO

ANOTHER

AREA OF THE CITY.

THE MINISTRY THEN EXPANDED

TO THE

POINT WHERE IT NOW TAKES UP

AN

ENTIRE BLOCK OF DOWNTOWN

SPOKANE.

THE INTERNATIONAL

MINISTRY AND

ACTIVATES THE THINGS OF GOD

TO THE

WORK OF THE MINISTRY.

THE PURPOSE IS TO GET THE

BODY OF

CHRIST OR GOD'S PEOPLE

HEALED AND

RESTORED. HERE WE ARE IN

THE HEALING

ROOM HALLWAY. THERE ARE

EIGHT

HEALING ROOMS, THE FIRE

ROOM, THE

PORTAL ROOM AND MANY

OTHERS. FOLKS

COME FROM ALL OVER THE

WORLD AND

HERE IN AMERICA

SPECIFICALLY TO

SPOKANE LOOKING FOR HEALING

AND

GOD'S TOUCH.

OPEN 5 DAYS A WEEK.

ANYONE NEEDING PRAYER CAN

COME TO

THE HEALING ROOMS. NO

APPOINTMENT

NECESSARY. JUST SHOW UP AND

SIGN IN.

STAFF ARE READY ON STAND BY

READY TO

PRAY.

THERE IS ALSO THE GLORY

ROOM READY

TO WORSHIP WITH PEOPLE LIKE

JOHN COX.

I CAN ONLY EXPLAIN IT

THE WAY I

GET HIT BY A MAX TRUCK WHEN

I GET

HERE. GOD ALWAYS MEETS ME

HERE.

I ALWAYS ASK FOR A SPECIAL

WORD AND

WHAT IS GOING TO BE PRECISE

IN WHAT

I NEED AND HE ALWAYS

DELIVERS TO ME.

HE SAYS THIS ROOM GOES

BEYOND

SPOKANE.

HE WANTS TO HEAL THE NATION.

WHERE HE TRAINS

EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE

FOR EXTRAORDINARY WORK.

TODAY

THOUSANDS OF HEALING ROOMS

OPERATE

IN 75 COUNTRIES.

HERE IN THE ROOM, PEOPLE

PRAY FOR

THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS.

PEOPLE ASK, SHOULD WE

HAVE THIS

IN OUR COMMUNITY? I ALWAYS

ANSWER

THE SAME WAY, DO YOU HAVE

ANY SICK

PEOPLE HERE? WHERE YOU

HAVE SICK

PEOPLE, YOU NEED HEALING

AND HEALING

ROOMS.

HE BELIEVES WHAT HE

CALLS THE

ISAIAH 60-GENERATION WHERE

DARKNESS

COVERS THE EARTH, BUT ALSO

TAKES

COMFORT IN HOW THIS STORY

ENDS.

THEY REALIZE THAT WE

HAVE THE

AUTHORITY AND POWER TO TAKE

BACK

WHAT THE ENEMY HAS STOLEN.

I READ

THE LAST CHAPTER.

WE WIN.

BUT WE HAVE TO REALIZE, GOD

CALLS US

AN OVERCOMER.

THAT MEANS WE HAVE TO BE

SOMETHING

TO OVERCOME.

PRAYER IS POWERFUL. STAY

WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
