FROM THE MOST CONCORD

CITY.

THE PAST COMES ALIVE.

IT'S CRITICAL TO TAKE

THIS

HILL.

THE FUTURE WILL UNFOLD.

THE FUTURE WILL BE

UNSECURE.

AN INCREDIBLE ANSWER TO

PRAYER

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB".

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN TO THIS EDITION

OF THE

"700 CLUB".

IT'S TREMENDOUS

SIGNIFICANCE TO

WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEKEND.

I WILL RELATE THIS TO THE

BIBLE

BECAUSE YOU WILL BE

INTERESTED IN

THAT.

THE HEADLINES TODAY HAVE TO

DO

WITH THE POLICE. THIS MAN

WAS

LOOKING FOR COPS TO KILL.

NOW THE

INVESTIGATION IS TRYING TO

FIND

OUT MORE ABOUT GAVIN LONG.

THE FORMER MARINE WHO

AMBUSHED

POLICE IN BATON ROUGE ON

SUNDAY

AND MURDERING THREE OF

THEM.

WE ARE LEARNING MORE

ABOUT THE

POLICE OFFICERS WHO WERE

SHOT TO

DEATH AND NOW INVESTIGATION

IS

LOOKING AT THE POSSIBILITY

THAT HE

MAY HAVE HAD HELP.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THE STORY.

A NATION IS ON EDGE ONCE

AGAIN.

AROUND 8:40 A.M. IN BATON

ROUGE,

POLICE RESPONDED TO A MAN

WITH A

GUN IN BLACK.

SHOTS FIRED.

DEVASTATING AUDIO OF

OFFICERS

WALKING INTO AN AMBUSH.

OFFICERS ENGAGED THE

SUBJECT AT

THAT PARTICULAR TIME AND HE

DIED.

THREE OFFICERS, BRAD

GARAFOLA,

MONTRELL JACKSON, MATTHEW

GERALD

ALL DEAD.

HE WROTE ABOUT THE

DIFFICULTIES HE

FACED BEING A BLACK MAN AND

BEING

A POLICE OFFICER. HE SAID

IN

UNIFORM, I GET NASTY

HATEFUL LOOKS

AND NOW IN UNIFORM, SOME

PEOPLE

CONSIDER ME A THREAT. I'M

WORKING

THESE THREATS.

FAMILIES, OFFICERS,

WHATEVER, IF

YOU NEED A HUG AND WANT A

PRAYER.

I GOT YOU, JACKSON WAS A

10-YEAR

VETERAN OF THE POLICE

DEPARTMENT.

MATTHEW GERALD WAS A FATHER

AND

VETERAN AND MARINE IN IRAQ.

BRAD GARAFOLA WORKING FOR

YEARS IN

THE DEPARTMENT.

THE SHOOTER WAS NAMED GAVIN

LONG

WHO DECIDED TO KILL ON HIS

BIRTHDAY.

PROTEST ONLY THROUGH

FIGHTING BACK.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

TOOK AN

OPPOSITE VIEW.

NOTHING JUSTIFIES

VIOLENCE

AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT.

THIS IS AFTER THE NATION

IS

STILL REELING FROM THE

DEATH THE

ALTON STERLING.

Pat: WELL, WE'VE GOT A

NATION

THAT'S TORN APART.

WE HAVE TO BRING RACIAL

JUSTICE.

WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE WE

COULD NOT

KILL POLICE OFFICERS.

THEY HAVE TO COME UP WITH A

STRATEGY TO OVERCOME THIS

BECAUSE

THEY ARE VERY VULNERABLE

RIGHT NOW.

WE NEED THEM OUT PATROLLING

THE

STREETS.

YOU TALK ABOUT TIGHT

SECURITY,

THEY HAVE THOUSANDS OF

SECURITY IN

CLEVELAND FOR THE

REPUBLICAN

NATIONAL CONVENTION.

EVEN BEFORE THE SHOOTINGS

IN BATON

ROUGE, THE TERRORIST ATTACK

IN

FRANCE.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS THAT

REPORT.

THANKS, PAT.

A MID-THAT TIGHT SECURITY

DONALD

TRUMP WILL PROVE TO VOTERS

HE'S

WORTH THE WHITE HOUSE.

MANY CHRISTIANS TRAVEL TO

CLEVELAND TO CALL ONTO GOD

ON

BEHALF OF AMERICA.

DURING CLEVELAND

CONVENTION

WEEK DIDN'T START OUT WITH

POLITICS, IT STARTED WITH

PRAISE.

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

CAME HERE

TO PRAY FOR REVIVAL IN

AMERICA.

THE BIBLE SAYS MY PEOPLE

WHO

HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY,

SPEAK

MY FAITH.

TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS.

THERE WILL BE A HEALING AND

HEALING FROM HEAVEN.

GOOD NEWS TO THOSE WHO

UNDERSTAND THAT ONLY JESUS

SAVES

AND CLEARLY NOT A

POLITICIAN.

IT'S NOT ABOUT OUR

PERSONAL

PARTIES, ABOUT OUR

PREFERENCES,

TODAY IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS.

THIS WEEK IT WILL BE ALL

ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP.

HE COMES HERE WITH ONE

GOAL,

CONVINCING SKEPTICAL VOTERS

THAT

HE'S PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL.

GOVERNOR MIKE PENCE TO HELP

HIM,

BUT EVANGELICALS SAY IT'S

MORE

THAN THAT.

HE'S GOING TO SAY THINGS

THAT

EVEN PRO LIFE CATHOLIC

CHRISTIANS

WANT TO BE IN THE POLITICAL

MARKETPLACE.

IN THE POLITICAL

MARKETPLACE

AND TRAILING IN OTHERS WITH

HIGH

NEGATIVES WITH VOTERS.

TRUMP MUST REACH MINORITIES

AND

WILL GET HELP FROM A PASTOR.

YOU HAVE NO REASON TO BE

AFRAID.

SOMEBODY GIVE GOD GLORY.

DARRYL IS THE PASTOR OF THE

NEW

SPIRIT REVIVAL CENTER AND

WILL

SPEAK LATER THIS WEEK.

THE SUPPORT FOR TRUMP HAS

LED TO

CRITICISM IN THE AFRICAN

COMMUNITY.

I GET NAME CALLING

BECAUSE

PEOPLE ACCUSE HIM OF BEING

RACIST

AND HE'S NOT.

IF YOU DEFEND HIM, YOU ARE

AUTOMATICALLY A SELL OUT

AND UNCLE

TOM.

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE

KNOWN HIM

FOR YEARS.

HE REALLY IS PURSUING

OUR

LIFE'S INTEREST AND HE WILL

BE

SUPPORTIVE TO GOD.

FROM CELEBRITY

APPRENTICE THAT

SHE'S AWARE OF THE TENSION

IN THE

AIR.

I CALL IN THE NAME OF

JESUS

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT HE

CHANGES

THING AND MORE IMPORTANTLY

TO

CHANGE HIS HEART.

I BELIEVE WE HAVE TO RISE

ABOVE

PARTISAN POLITICS, HEAVY

DEBATES

AND ARGUMENTS AND WE HAVE

TO UNIT

AS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THE GOOD NEWS FOR DONALD

TRUMP

IS THAT THERE APPEARS TO BE

NO

CHALLENGE IN HIS NOMINATION

HERE

IN CLEVELAND.

THAT MEANS INSIDE THE ARENA

SHOULD

BE RELATIVELY CALM

SITUATION.

OUTSIDE THE ARENA, ALL BETS

ARE

OFF AND PROTEST CAN HAPPEN

AND

VIOLENCE CAN REAR IT'S UGLY

HEAD

AND WE'LL BE MONITORING THE

EVENTS

ALL WEEK LONG.

THANKS, DAVID.

TURKISH WAR PLANES HAVE

BEEN

PATROLLING THE SKIES OVER

TURKEY

SIGNALING THE LEADER'S

BELIEF OVER

THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT IS

NOT OVER

YET.

A MILITARY TRIED TO TAKE

OVER THE

COUNTRY OVER THE WEEKEND.

MORE

THAN 300 PEOPLE WERE KILLED

IN

THAT COUP ATTEMPT AND OVER

FOUR

HUNDRED WOUNDED.

THEY WANTED HIM EXTRADITED

FROM

THE U.S. WHO TRIED TO FORM

A

GLOBAL FORCE IN

PENNSYLVANIA.

YOU CAN LOOK AT THE

CONTROVERSY

SURROUNDING HIM ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT, WHAT IS GOING ON?

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WHAT

YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND,

WHEN THAT

COUP TOOK PLACE, I SAID,

THAT GOES

CONTRARY TO PROPHECY.

I DON'T BELIEVE IT'S GOING

TO

HAPPEN, AND INDEED IT

DIDN'T

HAPPEN.

IT LOOKS LIKE NOW IT MAY

HAVE BEEN

STAGED TO SET UP EVERYONE.

YOU SEE, HERE IS WHAT THE

BIBLE

SAYS, AND I WANT YOU TO

LOOK AT IT

VERY CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT'S

DIRECTLY ATTACHED TO WHAT

IS GOING

ON HERE IN TURKEY.

HERE IS WHAT EZEKIEL SAID

IN

CHAPTER 38.

THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME

TO ME

SAYING, SET YOUR FAITH

TOWARDS

GOD, THE LAND OF -- AND

PROPHECY

AGAINST HIM.

I WILL PUT HOOKS IN YOUR

JAW AND

BRING YOU OUT ALL OF YOUR

ARMY,

HORSES, ALL OF THEM, THE

GREAT

COMPANY WITH BUCKLE AND ALL

OF

THEM WIELDING SWORDS.

LOOK AT THIS.

THIS IS IMPORTANT, PERSIA,

ALL

WITH ALL OF IT'S TROOPS

FROM THE

NORTH, MANY PEOPLE WITH

YOU, BE

PREPARED AND PREPARE

YOURSELVES.

YOU AND ALL YOUR COMPANY

THAT ARE

ASSEMBLED ABOUT YOU AND BE

A GUARD

FOR THEM. THEN IT SAYS IN

THAT,

THAT GOD IS GOING TO BRING

THAT

GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE, BUT

WHO ARE

THOSE PEOPLE. GOMER IS

TURKEY.

PUT IS LIBYA, ETHIOPIA,

PERSIA IS

IRAN.

SO, THIS IS GOING TO BE THE

CAUCUSES REGION IN THE AREA

ALONG

WITH THE ARMY FROM TURKEY

AND THE

LIBYANS.

AND YOU'VE GOT ISLAMIC

RIGHT NOW

DOWN IN THE NORTHERN PART

OF

AFRICA.

SO ALL THAT IS COMING

TOGETHER

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE.

TURKEY IS

KEY. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS

WHOLE

THING WAS A SET UP.

HE'S GOING, HE'S PURGING

THE

MILITARY.

HE'S PURGING THE CORDS,

HE'S

PUTTING ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE

IN

JAIL. HE IS GOING TO BE THE

UNDER

SPIRITED DICTATOR IN TURKEY

AND

GOING TO SWAY THE ISLAMIC

FASHION

TO BE AN ISLAMIC RADICAL

STATE.

HE WILL BE A KEY PLAYER IN

THE

COALITION IN THE LAST DAYS

TO COME

AGAINST ISRAEL.

THAT'S WHY THIS COUP

SOUNDING GOOD

BECAUSE THEY WOULD TAKE IT

BACK TO

DEMOCRACY LIKE, YOU KNOW,

IN THE

EARLY DAYS IT WAS SUPPOSED

TO BE A

DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY.

BUT NO, IT'S GOING TO BE A

RADICAL

ISLAMIC COUNTRY.

THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING

AT.

SO, PLEASE BELIEVE ME.

DON'T BE APPLAUDING HIM.

HE'S GOING TO BE

INSTITUTING A

DICTATOR POWER THAT WE HAVE

NOT

SEEN IN A LONG TIME. IT'S

GOING TO

BE TERRIBLE FOR ISRAEL.

WENDY?

Wendy: IN OTHER NEWS,

RECORDING

ARTIST, PREACHERS AROUND

THE

COUNTRY PACK THE MALL IN

WASHINGTON THIS WEEKEND TO

PRAY.

THE EVENT HAS BEEN IN THE

WORKS

FOR 5 YEARS AND WAS

SCHEDULED TO

LAST 12 HOURS, BUT EXTREME

HEAT

AND HUNDREDS OF AMBULANCES

CALLED

FORCED IT TO SHUTDOWN AFTER

SEVERAL HOURS.

EFREM GRAHAM WAS THERE.

Efrem: SATURDAY

TEMPERATURES

QUICKLY CLIMBED ABOVE 90

DEGREES

HERE IN WASHINGTON D.C..

BUT THE STEAMY WEATHER

DIDN'T KEEP

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS TO

ANSWER

CALLS TO COME TO THE

NATIONAL MALL

TO STAND TOGETHER, WORSHIP

TOGETHER AND PRAY TOGETHER.

THIS ISN'T ABOUT PERFECT

PEOPLE

GATHERING. IT'S ABOUT

IMPERFECT

PEOPLE. WE ARE ALL

GATHERING TO

SEEK THE PERFECT ONE.

THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER.

IT'S JESUS.

THIS CALL IS BEHIND THE

MAN OF

THIS MASSIVE EVENT CALLED

"TOGETHER 2016".

AND HILL SONG UNITED AND

MATTHEW

WEST LED TO THIS EXPERIENCE.

I WAS OVERWHELMED BY THE

CROWD,

JUST THE SIZE OF THE CROWD.

THERE WERE HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE STANDING IN THAT

PLACE

TODAY CELEBRATING A GOD WHO

FORGIVES AND RENEWS AND

BRINGS

HEALING TO OUR NATION.

PACKING THE MALL WITH

MILLIONS

OF PEOPLE TO PRAY HAS BEEN

IN THE

WORKS FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS.

BUT THE TIMING OF IT

CONSIDERING

WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING IN

THE LAST

WEEK COULDN'T HAVE BEEN

BETTER,

UNFORTUNATELY THE HEAT

FORCED IT

TO SHUTDOWN 5 HOURS EARLY.

HUNDREDS WERE TREATED

FOR HEAT

RELATED ILLNESSES.

I LOVE HAVING US

TOGETHER AND

TO SEE WHAT HEAVEN MIGHT BE.

BUT NOW WE HAVE TO BE READY

TO

WALK OUT OF HERE AND LIVE

IT OUT.

RYAN WAS THERE WHEN THE

MINISTER FIRST ANNOUNCED

PLANS FOR

"TOGETHER 2016" 5 YEARS AGO.

HOW BUMMED WERE YOU THAT

THE

HAD TO END EARLY?

IT'S HEARTBREAKING.

5 YEARS INTO PLANNING THAT,

THAT

WAS HEARTBREAKING. I TALKED

TO A

LEADER AND HE SAID, YOU

KNOW, I

HAVE TO TRUST THAT THE LORD

HAD

SOMETHING IN THAT.

EVEN WITH TEARS IN HIS

EYES, I

HAVE TO TRUST THAT GOD

KNOWS WHAT

HE'S DOING AND SOMETHING

AMAZING

STILL HAPPENED EVEN THOUGH

WE

ENDED EARLY.

BECAUSE THE TRUE MEASURE

OF

SUCCESS IS WHAT CHANGES

AFTER

LEAVING THE PARK. EFREM

GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

WELL SAID, THANKS, EFREM.

THE COUNTRY OF GHANA IS

HOME TO

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

IT'S ALSO A HOME FOR

CHILDREN BY

CBN'S "ORPHAN'S PROMISE".

THESE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN

I'M

STANDING WITH ARE VERY

EXCITED

BECAUSE TODAY WE CUT THE

RIBBON ON

THE VILLAGE OF HOPE. EACH

ONE OF

THEM IS COMING HERE NEEDED

A

FAMILY.

THEY WILL BE IN AN

APARTMENT WITH

A MOM AND DAD IN A HOME.

AND THERE IS ALSO A

BEAUTIFUL

CHAPEL IN THIS PLACE THAT

INCLUDES

A LIBRARY AND A FIELD WITH

LOTS OF

ACTIVITIES FOR THEM AND AN

INTERESTING STORY BY A

YOUNG MAN

NAMED RICHARD WHO WAS AT

"ORPHAN'S

PROMISE" AND NOW HE'S

RUNNING A

FISH FARM THAT WILL FEED

PROTEIN

TO THESE CHILDREN AND OFFER

HOPE.

ALSO A CHAPEL.

GOD SAID, I WILL PUT THE

LONELY

IN FAMILIES.

WHY? BECAUSE FAMILY IS A

GOD

IDEA. CHILDREN ARE MEANT TO

BE

RAISED BY MOM'S AND DADS

WHO LOVE

THEM AND HELP THEM ENVISION

WHO

THEY ARE AND DREAM FOR

THEIR

FUTURES. THAT'S WHY WE ARE

HERE

BECAUSE IN THIS HOUSE,

CHILDREN

WHO HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES

WITHOUT

THAT, ARE GOING TO BE

REDEEMED BY

THE MERCY OF THE GRACE AND

THE

LOVE OF THEIR HEAVENLY

FATHER. THE

WE GET TO WATCH IT.

IT'S GOING TO BE AN AMAZING

MIRACLE.

AND OUR TERRY MEEUWSEN

IS JUST

BACK.

WHAT A HEARTWARMING STORY.

HOW MANY KIDS ARE GOING TO

BE ABLE

TO CALL THAT HOME?

WELL THIRTY SOME NOW,

BUT THERE

WILL BE ANOTHER BUILDING

NEXT

DOOR. THESE ARE ACTUALLY

SEPARATE

HOMES.

SIX IN THE SEPARATE

BUILDING.

ABOUT 6-7 CHILDREN IN AN

APARTMENT

WITH A MOM AND DAD. THEY

ARE

GROWING UP IN A SCENARIO

WITH

SIBLINGS AND MOST OF ALL,

THE RISE

OF CHAPEL IS GOING UP AND

THEY ARE

GETTING TO KNOW THE LOVE OF

JESUS

CHRIST. WE ARE WORKING WITH

ORPHAN'S TEAM AND WE LOVE

TO

PARTNER WITH PEOPLE THAT

ARE DOING

IT WELL. WHATS SO EXCITING

WITH US

WAS TO FIND RICHARD.

HERE WAS THIS YOUNG MAN

THAT WE

FOUND IN JUNIOR HIGH.

WE'VE EDUCATED HIM ALL THE

WAY

THROUGH COLLEGE. HE'S GOT A

DEGREE

IN AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGY

AND

HERE HE IS NOW LIVING THERE

RAISING FISH TO FEED THE

CHILDREN.

AS A MICRO ENTERPRISE

OPPORTUNITY

TO HELP SUPPORT THE PLACE

AS WELL.

GOD REDEEMS ON ALL LEVELS.

THE

KIDS ARE BEAUTIFUL, WELL,

THE

PEOPLE ARE BEAUTIFUL AND WE

HAD A

WONDERFUL WONDERFUL TRIP.

WATCH

THE GHANA STORIES YET TO

COME.

UNDER ATTACK AS THE

SO-CALLED

PEACE MAKERS ARE DIVIDING

JERUSALEM. THEY GET A

HISTORY

LESSON IN THE CITY OF KINGS

WHEN

WE COME BACK.

WE COME BACK.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU ARE WATCHING THE "700

CLUB".

IT'S GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

WHEN IT COMES TO ISRAELI

PALESTINIAN PEACE TALKS FOR

THE

JEWS STATE.

WHY IS IT UNITING JERUSALEM

SO

IMPORTANT TO THE PEOPLE.

SCOTT

ROSS TOOK A LOOK TO GET THE

ANSWER.

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY ALL

SHARE

A COMMON BOND.

IN ADDITION TO BIBLICAL

SIGNIFICANCE, THEY ARE ALL

IN THE

PART OF THE CITY

PALESTINIANS WANT

AS THEIR FUTURE CAPITOL.

JERUSALEM IS IN THE CITY

OF THE

HILL AND WE ARE LOOKING AT

THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, THE BEAUTIFUL

VISION

HERE BEHIND AT THE NEW CITY.

SILVERSTEIN, FOUNDER AND

PRESIDENT OF JERUSALEM, HE

SAYS

THE CITY MUST REMAIN UNITED.

WE LOOKED AT JERUSALEM FROM

DIFFERENT ANGLES TO

UNDERSTAND ITS

COMPLEXITY.

THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND

THE ARAB

NATIONS.

JERUSALEM HAS BEEN

CONQUERED

MORE THAN ANY OTHER CITY,

YET THE

ONLY CAPITOL THE JEWISH

PEOPLE

HAVE KNOWN.

STILL FAIL TO RECOGNIZE AS

THE

NATION'S CAPITOL.

EVEN THOUGH IT'S IN THE

NAME BY

THE KORAN.

WE KNOW DAVID CAME HERE

AND

CONQUERED JERUSALEM AND FOR

THOUSANDS OF YEARS THE JEWS

HAVE

SOVEREIGNCY BUT ONLY SAW

RETURN OF

THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN THE

LAST

HUNDRED YEARS.

IT'S DIVIDED BETWEEN

EAST AND

WEST.

THE OLDER EASTERN SECTION

STRETCHES FROM NORTH TO

SOUTH.

THE MAJORITY OF JEWS LIVE

THERE

AND ALSO JEWISH ISRAELIS.

DIVIDING JERUSALEM, IS

THAT

REALISTIC.

IT'S THINK IT'S A HUGE

MISTAKE

BECAUSE DIVIDING JERUSALEM

WILL

CREATE THE OPPOSITE.

FROM 1949 TO 1967

JERUSALEM WAS

DIVIDED.

DURING 1967 ISRAEL TOOK

BACK

CONTROL.

THE BIBLE CALLS JERUSALEM

THE CITY

OF GREAT KINGS.

IT'S SEEN MANY KINGS.

IN 1964 JORDAN KING,

HUSSEIN

BUILT A CASTLE.

IT'S NOT THE PALACE OF

KING

HUSSEIN.

IT'S EASY TO SEE WHY KINGS

OLD AND

NEW WOULD WANT TO OCCUPY

THIS HILL.

WE ARE ACTUALLY LOOK THE

INTO THE

DESERT BEHIND THE MOUNTAIN

OF

MOAB.

WHAT YOU SEE BELOW US AND

THE

NORTH OF US THESE TWO

NEIGHBORHOODS --NESSELED

AND WOULD

BE PALESTINE 90,000 JEWS

LIVING IN

THIS NEIGHBORHOOD WOULD BE

PALESTINE.

HOW CAN YOU DIVIDE THEM

SINCE

IT'S SO INTEGRATED?

THAT IS A RHETORICAL

QUESTION.

IT IS.

LOOKING TO THE NORTH, WE

CAN

SEE LIBYA AND SYRIA,

OTHERWISE

KNOWN AS THE WEST BANK.

THEN IS

RAMALLAH, THE CURRENT SEED

OF

GOVERNMENT FOR THE

PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY.

THE IMPORTANT THING TO

UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU WANT TO

UNDERSTAND STRATEGIC ISSUES

ESPECIALLY IN JERUSALEM,

WHAT IS

THE GOAL? WE UNDERSTAND

JERUSALEM

IS THE HEART OF THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

IF THEY CAN LIBERATE

JERUSALEM

FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW,

THEN

THEY WILL HAVE SUCCEEDED.

THEY BELIEVE ARABS HAVE

THREE

MAIN WAYS THEY ARE WORKING

TO

LIBERATE JERUSALEM, BY

FORCE,

PROPAGANDA AND DIPLOMACY

AND

DEMOCRACY.

WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS

BUILDING

AND BUILDING INSIDE

JERUSALEM

LARGELY ILLEGAL STRUCTURES

IN FACT

CREATED A TERROR CONTINUUM

THAT

RUNS FROM THE NORTH OF

JERUSALEM

THROUGH THE OLD CITY TO

BETHLEHEM

IN THE SOUTH. BY DOING

THAT, THEY

WILL HAVE INFILTRATED A

DEMOGRAPHIC INSIDE

JERUSALEM.

YOU HAVE HOPED FOR THIS

CITY TO

BE WHOLE. DO YOU SEE A GOOD

FUTURE

AHEAD OR NO?

IT'S WHAT WE FIND IN

MOUNT

OLIVE.

THERE WILL BE AN EARTHQUAKE

AND

ALL KINDS OF THINGS HAPPEN

HERE.

THAT IS YET TO HAPPEN IN

THE

FUTURE AND JERUSALEM WILL

DWELL

SECURE.

THE QUESTION IS HOW DO

WE GET

THERE?

THE THING THAT IS

GUARANTEED TO

"KEEP JERUSALEM", TO "KEEP

JERUSALEM" UNITED AND THAT

IS THE

PRELUDE TO HOPEFULLY THE

INCREDIBLE EVENT WHICH IS

THE

ULTIMATE PEACE FOR

JERUSALEM IN

THE WORLD.

SCOTT ROSS.

JERUSALEM.

Pat: THE BIBLE STATES

THIS FEAT

WILL STAND IN THE MOUNT

OLIVE.

THIS IS A VERY PROPHETIC

PLACE.

THAT JERUSALEM WILL BE IN

THE FOOT

OF THE GENTILES WHEN THE

TIME OF

THE GENTILES IS FULFILLED.

IN THE

5TH DAY OF WAR IN 1967, FOR

THE

FIRST TIME IN 25 YEARS, THE

JEWS

HAD CONTROL OF JERUSALEM,

AND THAT

MEANT THAT SOMETHING

EXTRAORDINARY

IS GETTING READY TO HAPPEN

IN THE

GENTILE WORLD.

THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED.

THERE HAS BEEN CHAOS AND

CONFUSION

AND WARS AND EARTHQUAKES

AND

FAMINE AND ALL KINDS OF

DIFFICULTIES AND DEATH

CASCADING

AND ALL THAT IS TAKING

PLACE SINCE

1967.

NOW, TO DIVIDE THAT AGAIN

WOULD GO

AGAINST THE BIBLE.

EARLY I TALKED ABOUT TURKEY.

TURKEY IS GOING TO BECOME A

PART

OF THE COALITION TO COME

AGAINST

ISRAEL.

THEREFORE YOU ARE NOT GOING

TO

HAVE THE COAL FACTOR TAKING

OVER

TURKEY.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT

JERUSALEM WAS

UNDER THE FOOT OF THE

GENTILES

WHEN THE TIME OF THE

GENTILES WAS

-- AND IT WAS NOT DIVIDED

AND YOU

ARE GOING AGAINST THE BIBLE.

ANY COALITION OF NATIONS

THAT

TRIES TO DESTROY THE

BIBLICAL

FOUNDATIONS FIND THAT THEY

ARE

DESTROYED THEMSELVES.

WE ARE LOOKING AT SOMETHING

VERY

VERY IMPORTANT, AND KEEP

YOUR EYES

ON JERUSALEM, THE

INCREDIBLE THING

IS, THE UNITED STATES

CONGRESS

VOTED TO MOVE OUR EMBASSY

TO

JERUSALEM, BUT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT REFUSED TO GO

ALONG

WITH WHAT CONGRESS --

MANDATED

BECAUSE THEY SAID IT WOULD

UPSET

THE ARABS.

THEY KEEP IT IN TEL AVIV.

IT'S AN IMPORTANT OFFICE,

BUT IT'S

NOT THE CAPITOL AND TO BE

FOLLOWING THAT FORCE, IS

ONE

REASON WHY WE NEED A

SIGNIFICANT

CHANGE IN THE LEADERSHIP OF

OUR

NATION. TERRY, SO MUCH FOR

THAT.

Terry: WELL, LOTS GOING

ON. WE

HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THAT

IN

TURKEY.

IT'S FASCINATING.

COMING UP, A CAR CRASH

LEAVES

ONE PASTOR IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

THEY SAID, I'M SORRY,

YOUR

HUSBAND IS BETWEEN LIFE AND

DEATH.

I FELT HELPLESS.

WATCH HIM MAKE A

MIRACULOUS

RECOVERY. WHEN WE COME

BACK.

OLOGY >

RAUL DE LA MATTA JUST

FINISHED

PREACHING ONE SUNDAY

AFTERNOON

WHEN HE WAS LOADING HIS

FAMILY IN

HIS MINI VAN.

HE IS ON A ROAD CALLED THE

SAFEST

EXPRESSWAY.

THEN HE HEARD HIS WIFE

SCREAM AND

HEARD A BIG BLACK AUDIO

TURNED

TOWARDS HIS CAR.

WE HEARD A SCREECHING

SOUND.

A CAR LOST CONTROL

CROSSED THE

MEDIAN INTO HIS FAMILY VAN

WHICH

IS CARRYING A FAMILY OF

FIVE.

PASTOR RAUL DE LA MATTA

AND HIS

WIFE ELIZABETH AND THREE

CHILDREN.

I WAS SO DISTURBED BY

THE --

SIGHT OF MY EYES.

ELIZABETH AND HER

CHILDREN HAD

MINOR INJURIES AND WOULD

RECOVER.

RAUL WAS IN CRITICAL

CONDITION.

THEY SAID, I'M SORRY,

YOUR

HUSBAND IS BETWEEN LIFE AND

DEATH.

I FELT HELPLESS.

RAUL SUFFERED MULTIPLE

FRACTURES TO HIS ARM, FEMUR

AND

PELVIS. THE DOCTOR'S MAIN

CONCERN

WAS KEEPING HIM ALIVE. HE

WAS

BLEEDING INTERNALLY.

WHEN YOU HAVE INJURIES

TO YOUR

PELVIS ESPECIALLY IN A CAR

ACCIDENT IS A MARKER FOR

OTHER

ORGANS TO BE INJURED.

DOCTORS FOUND A VAIN HAD

BEEN

SEVERED.

MEANWHILE, HIS WIFE CALLED

THE

CHURCH TO PRAY.

I ASKED FOR PRAYER THAT

HE

WOULD WALK, THAT HE WOULD

LIVE.

AFTER HOURS ELIZABETH

WAS

ALLOWED TO SEE HER HUSBAND

THAT IS

IN AND OUT OF CONSCIOUSNESS.

I WAS DEVASTATED WHAT I

SAW.

I COULDN'T RECOGNIZE HIM.

I HELD MY TEARS AND WANTED

TO BE A

STRONG WIFE AND I TOLD HIM,

HONEY,

WE ARE ALL OKAY. WE LOVE

YOU, WE

ARE PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOU

ARE

GOING TO GET THROUGH THIS

AND YOU

ARE STRONG, YOU ARE A

CONQUERER.

PRAYER CONTINUED AND HE

MOBILIZED.

ELIZABETH REMEMBERS GETTING

THE

NEWS.

NO INTERNAL ORGANS WERE

PUNCTURED.

WHEN THE DOCTOR TOLD ME

THAT IT'S

JUST BROKEN BONES, WE CAN

WORK

WITH BROKEN BONES. THAT FOR

ME WAS

VERY PEACEFUL. I SAID,

THANK YOU,

LORD, BECAUSE YOU HEARD OUR

PRAYERS.

BUT RAUL STILL FACED A

LONG

HARD RECOVERY.

IN THE SPAN OF 7 DAYS, HE

WENT

THROUGH NUMEROUS

RECONSTRUCTIVE

SURGERIES. AFTERWARDS HE

WOKE UP

AND WAS COHERENT FOR THE

FIRST

TIME SINCE THE ACCIDENT.

THE DOCTOR CAME IN AND

ALL I

REMEMBER HIM SAYING IS YOU

WERE

INVOLVED IN A VERY SEVERE

CAR

ACCIDENT AND YOU WILL NOT

BE ABLE

TO WALK FOR AT LEAST 2

YEARS.

IT FELT LIKE I PUT ALL MY

DREAMS

IN A FIRE CRACKER AND IT

BLEW UP .

LITERALLY I SAID, WHAT AM I

GOING

TO DO WITH MY LIFE, NOT TO

BE ABLE

TO STAND UP, NOT TO BE ABLE

TO

PLAY WITH MY CHILDREN? IT

FELT

HOPELESS, EITHER THE LORD

DOES

SOMETHING OR THAT'S IT.

MY STORY IS DONE.

RAUL, HIS FAMILY AND

OTHERS

PRAYED AS HE BEGAN PHYSICAL

THERAPY.

IT WAS SUCH A TOUGH

PROCESS TO

SEE HIM GO THROUGH THAT,

BUT HE

WAS VERY STRONG AND HE

DECIDED TO

GET BETTER.

RAUL PROGRESSED FASTER

THAN

ANYONE EXPECTED. THEN AFTER

ONLY

11 MONTHS OF THERAPY, HE

WAS BACK

ON HIS FEET.

FROM THE WALKER TO THE

CRUTCHERS, FROM THE

CRUTCHES TO

THE CANE AND THEN FROM THE

CANE TO

HOLDING ONTO SOMEONE THEN I

WAS

FINALLY ABLE TO WALK, NOT

THE 2

YEARS THE DOCTOR SAID.

TODAY RAUL WALKS.

NOW HE AND HIS WIFE ARE

TRAVELING

THE WORLD AND SHARING THEIR

STORY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW

DIRE THE

SITUATION LOOKS, JESUS WILL

PULL

YOU THROUGH.

LOOK TO GOD AS OUR

SAVIOUR.

HE WILL HELP YOU.

THERE IS NO OTHER NAME

UNDER

HEAVEN BY WHICH MEN MAYBE

SAVED.

I HOPE THAT SPEAKS TO YOUR

NEED,

TO YOUR LIFE, TO WHATEVER

YOU ARE

FACING TODAY. GOD IS BIGGER

THAN

YOUR ISSUE, BIGGER THAN

YOUR

HEALTH, HE'S BIGGER THAN

YOUR

FINANCES, BIGGER THAN YOUR

MARRIAGE. TODAY WE WANT TO

PRAY

WITH YOU AND START BY

ENCOURAGING

YOU WITH YOUR FAITH AS

WELL. THIS

IS ELIZABETH IN WASHINGTON.

SHE WAS LIFTING THE COUCH

WHEN SHE

TWISTED A WRONG-WAY THAT

CAUSED

IMMEDIATE PAIN IN HER BACK.

THE X-RAY SHOWED SHE HAD

BROKEN

HER BACK AND THE DOCTOR

COULDN'T

DO ANYTHING.

SHE WAS WATCHING AND YOU

SAID,

SOMEONE HAS A CRACK IN YOUR

BACK

AND THERE WILL BE A

MIRACULOUS

HEALING. SHE SAID THAT WAS

ME AND

SHE'S BEEN PAIN FREE THAT

DAY.

THIS WAS A MIRACULOUS

HEALING.

Pat: JOY IN ALABAMA HAD A

RECURRING ISSUE WITH HER

EYES.

HER EYELID WOULD BECOME

SCRATCHY

AS IF SHE WAS IN A BOXING

MATCH.

1 DAY YOU SAID SOMEONE HAS

A

RECURRING PROBLEM WHERE YOU

GET

THESE LITTLE BLISTERS UNDER

YOUR

EYE.

JANE SAID THAT'S FOR ME AND

HER

EYE HAS BEGUN TO CLEAR UP.

FOLKS, GOD IS ABLE.

WE ARE NOT WORTHY OF ANY OF

THIS.

SO IT'S NOT OUR

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

IT IS THE WORD OF GOD AND

THE

POWER OF GOD. TERRY AND I

ARE

GOING TO JOIN TOGETHER AND

PRAY

FOR YOU.

FATHER, I PRAY WITH MY DEAR

SISTER

IN THE THE NAME OF JESUS.

SOMEBODY AGAIN HAS A BROKEN

BACK.

YOU'VE BEEN SUFFERING FROM

THIS

THING. THEY MAY HAVE EVEN

TRIED TO

FUSE SOMETHING AND AT THIS

POINT

IN TIME, YOU ARE GOING TO

FEEL

LIKE A BOLT OF ELECTRICITY

LIKE

LIGHTNING IN JESUS NAME YOU

ARE

MADE WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE IN A

SCENARIO,

GOD HEALS THROUGH PRAYER.

SOMEONE HAS PSORIASIS

AND

BLISTERS AND SUFFERING LIKE

HE HAS

BOILS, I CAN'T EXACTLY

DESCRIBE IT.

IT'S A GOOEY OOZING MESS.

AT THIS POINT PUT YOUR NAME

WHERE

IT HURTS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

TOUCH.

SOMEONE HAS HEADACHES

AND

MIGRAINES.

BUT NOT AFTER TODAY.

RECEIVE YOUR

HEALING THROUGH JESUS NOW.

LORD, HEAR THEIR

PRAYERS, WE

PRAY NOT BECAUSE OF US

LORD, BUT

BECAUSE OF YOUR LOVE.

DO IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

AMEN.

CALL US.

WE LOVE TO HAVE REPORTS AND

SHARE

THEM AND BUILD PEOPLE'S

FAITH.

Terry: WE ARE GOING TO

BRING IT

ON.

STUART SAYS MY FRIEND WANTS

ME TO

STORE ILLEGAL ITEMS AT MY

HOUSE

FOR HER.

WHAT DO I DO? HEAR OUR

RESPONSE

TO HER.

WELCOME BACK TO THE "700

CLUB".

PRAYER VIGILS WERE HELD AT

A

CATHEDRAL IN NICE FOR THE

BASTILLE

DAY TRUCK ATTACK.

THE MASSACRE LEFT 84 PEOPLE

DEAD

AND MANY WOUNDED.

MANY OF THEM WERE TOURIST.

ISIS HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY

FOR THE ATTACK.

CHINA WITH A GOSPEL.

IT FEATURES A VARIETY OF IN

YOU

VIDEOS EVERYDAY INCLUDING

CHINESE

TESTIMONY AND IT'S IN ITS

THIRD

YEAR.

SO FAR IT HAS 31 MILLION

VIEWS ON

THE CHINESE EQUIVALENT OF

YOUTUBE.

IT'S GOING STRONG.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

WHAT'S

GOING ON WITH CBN BY GOING

ONLINE

TO CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL.

DEMAND VIDEOS, GO TO

CBN.COM.

I WANT TO BRING IT ON

WITH SOME

OF THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS

THAT YOU

HAVE SUBMITTED.

PAT, THE FIRST ONE COMES

FROM

GILBERT WHO SAYS, MY FRIEND

DEALS

WITH SOME ILLEGAL ITEMS

WHICH I

PRESUME MAYBE DRUG OR

ALCOHOL

RELATED.

SHE WANTS ME TO KEEP THEM

IN MY

HOUSE FOR STORAGE.

IS IT BAD FOR ME TO ALLOW

THIS?

PLEASE HELP.

I WILL TELL YOU THE WAY

IT

GOES, BUDDY.

IF THEY FIND CONTRABAND,

ILLEGAL

DRUGS IN YOUR HOUSE, NOT

ONLY WILL

THEY TAKE THEM, THEY ALSO

CAN

CONFISCATE EVERYTHING ELSE

YOU OWN

IN YOUR HOUSE, EVERYTHING,

AND

THEN THEY CAN GO AFTER YOUR

BANK

ACCOUNT AND ALL OF YOUR

MONEY. YOU

MAY SOMEHOW GET IT BACK

AFTER

MONTHS AND YEARS OF LEGAL

WORK,

BUT OVER THE TIME, YOU WILL

GET

STRIPPED FROM EVERYTHING

YOU HAVE.

GET RID OF THAT JUNK.

CAN IT BE AIDING AND A

BETTING

IN ANYWAY?

THEY HAVE THESE ENORMOUS

AMOUNTS OF CONTRABAND AND

ONCE

THEY DO A SEIZURE, THEY

TAKE

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE, YOUR

MONEY

AND JEWELRY, EVERYTHING.

THIS ONE SAYS, HOW CAN

YOU TALK

TO THE HOLY SPIRIT AND KNOW

THE

HOLY SPIRIT IS TALKING TO

YOU?

YOU HAVE TO HEAR YOUR

SPIRIT

AND THIS VOICE, A SMALL

VOICE.

BUT YOU CAN TALK TO THE

HOLY

SPIRIT.

HE IS A PERSON.

THIS IS GOD THE FATHER AND

GOD THE

SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT.

YOU CAN SEE, I THINK BENNY

HAMMER,

THE BOOK CALLED MORNING

SPIRIT.

YOU CAN TALK TO THE SPIRIT.

HE IS

A PERSON AND HE SAYS YOU

ARE

HONORED IN MY HOUSE IN THIS

PLACE.

WE USED TO SING A SONG,

YOUR

WELCOME HERE.

WE NEED TO WELCOME THE

SPIRIT OF

GOD AND HONOR THE SPIRIT OF

GOD.

GOD IS THERE TO LEAD US TO

JESUS.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN THE

HOLY

SPIRIT IS TALKING TO YOU?

MY REASON IS YOU GET

USED TO

THE FACT. SOMETIMES IT'S

YOUR OWN

VOICE, SOMETIMES IT'S THE

VOICE OF

THE WORLD, SOMETIMES IT'S

THE

VOICE OF GOD.

YOU HAVE TO PRACTICE THE

PRESENCE

OF GOD.

THIS IS MARY WHO SAYS MY

SON

THOMAS BROUGHT UP THE

QUESTION.

WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANT

REASON FOR

THE NO. 40 IN THE BIBLE?

WELL, 40 IS THE LENGTH

OF A

GENERATION. THE SO A

GENERATION IS

40, BUT THEY ARE

SIGNIFICANT.

10 IS THE NUMBER OF

COMPLETION, 4

IS THE NUMBER OF EARTH, 3

IS THE

NUMBER OF ETERNITY.

YOU HAVE NUMBERS AROUND

THAT.

40 IS FOUR TIMES 10.

10 BEING THE NUMBER OF

COMPLETION.

4 BEING THE NUMBER OF EARTH.

BUT THAT'S THE NUMBER OF A

GENERATION.

THIS IS JACKIE WHO SAYS,

HELLO,

PAT.

I'M VERY LOST AND BROKEN.

I WANT TO KNOW WHY THE LORD

TAKES

PEOPLE AND THINGS AWAY FROM

ME AND

HOW DO I KNOW I'M IN THE

PLACE

THAT GOD WANTS ME TO BE?

SPEND TIME WITH THE LORD

AND

LET THE HOLY SPIRIT

MINISTER TO

YOU AND HE WILL.

YOU WILL HAVE A SENSE IN

YOUR LIFE.

IT WILL WORK WITH YOUR

SPIRIT THAT

YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.

THERE IS A

NEGATIVE THING IN YOU THAT

IS

DRIVING STUFF AWAY. THE YOU

DON'T

REALIZE WHAT YOU ARE DOING,

BUT

THERE IS SOMETHING INSIDE

OF YOU

THAT FEELS THAT YOU ARE NOT

WORTHY

TO HAVE THINGS AND

THEREFORE WHEN

THE THINGS COME TO YOU THAT

ARE

GOOD, YOU WILL RECEIVE

THEM. YOU

NEED TO RECOGNIZE THAT YOU

ARE AN

ANOINTING CHILD OF GOD AND

HE

WANTS TO DO GOOD THINGS FOR

YOU.

HE WILL DO GOOD THINGS FOR

YOU IF

YOU EXPECT THEM.

IN THE PSALM, OPEN YOUR

MOUTH WIDE

AND I WILL FILL IT.

Terry: AMEN.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS, WE

LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

WE'LL TRY TO ANSWER MORE

TOMORROW.

UP NEXT, A 30-YEAR DRUG

BINGE ENDS

UP IN A DIFFERENT PLACE.

FEEL JUST HOPELESS, YOU

KNOW.

AM I GOING TO COME OUT OF

THIS?

HEAR HOW HE GOT HIS

ANSWER

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU ARE WATCHING THE

"700

CLUB".

MAY THE LORD BLESSING YOU

EVERYDAY

AS TODAY.

MARTIN WAS TERRIFIED.

FOR 30 DAYS AND 30 NIGHTS

HE WAS

GETTING HIGH.

NOTHING WAS STANDING IN HIS

WAY.

DURING THAT MONTH LONG, A

DRUG

BINGE.

HE WAS THINKING HOW AM I

GOING TO

GET MORE DRUGS AND HOW AM I

GOING

TO STAY ALIVE.

JUST GETTING HIGH

EVERYDAY.

ASKING AM I GOING TO COME

OUT OF

THIS, CAN I COME OUT OF

THIS?

DRUGS RULED HIS LIFE AND

HE

FELT POWERLESS TO CHANGE.

HIS DAD

LEFT HIS MOM WHEN HE WAS

ONLY 5

YEARS OLD.

MOM LOVED ME BUT SHE WAS

TOO

BUSY.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANYONE IN

LIFE TO

TELL ME WHO I AM, MY

PURPOSE.

HIS MOTHER DID THE BEST

SHE

COULD AND TOOK HIM TO

CHURCH.

BUT MARTIN GREW BITTER AND

ANGRY.

I WAS ANGRY AT MY DAD.

HE GOT IN FIGHTS OFTEN

TO PROVE

HE WAS IN CONTROL.

YEAH, LISTEN TO ME NOW.

YOU ARE WRONG, I'M RIGHT

BECAUSE

THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY I

COULD DEAL

WITH CERTAIN THINGS THAT

WERE VERY

REAL AND PRESENT IN MY LIFE.

THROUGHOUT HIGH SCHOOL

MARTIN

PARTIED WITH HIS FRIENDS.

WHEN HE

CAME HOME AFTER HIS FIRST

YEAR IN

COLLEGE, THINGS CHANGED.

HIS

FRIENDS WERE IN A GANG AND

SELLING

COCAINE.

BEFORE LONG, MARTIN JOINED

THEM.

I CAME HOME EARNING

THOUSANDS

OF DOLLARS A WEEK.

IT WAS MORE VIOLENT AND

MORE

DANGER, BUT AT THAT AGE IT

WAS

ALSO MORE EXCITING.

IN TIME, THE VIOLENCE

ESCALATED

OUT OF CONTROL.

I WASN'T JUST FIGHTING

ANYMORE.

NOW YOU ARE SHOOTING AT

SOMEBODY

AND THEY ARE SHOOTING AT

YOU. 1

YEAR LIKE I BURIED LIKE TEN

PEOPLE

IN 1 YEAR. SO IT WAS ROUGH.

EVENTUALLY MARTIN BEGAN

SMOKING

CRACK.

AT FIRST IT WAS JUST

BECAUSE IT

WAS THERE AND LATER ON IT

BECAME A

MEANS TO COPE. PEOPLE WERE

DYING

AROUND YOU AND THE MONEY IS

NOT

COMING AS QUICKLY AS IT

USED TO BE

BUT YOU ARE IN THE

LIFESTYLE AND

YOU DON'T SEE A WAY OUT.

MARTIN MOVED AWAY HOPING

TO

TURN HIS LIFE AROUND. HE

GOT A JOB

AND STOPPED USING DRUGS AND

EVEN

PROFESSED HIS FAITH IN

JESUS.

I DIDN'T GIVE HIM MY

LIFE. I

HADN'T REPENTED.

I WAS JUST, I WAS OPEN, I

GUESS. I

WAS GETTING TIRED AND FED

UP, BUT

I WAS STILL ADDICTED.

MARTIN RETURNED HOME AND

FOR

THE NEXT 10 YEARS LIVED A

LIFE OF

DRUGS AND EVEN WENT TO

CHURCH ON

OCCASION.

BUT HE COULDN'T SHAKE HIS

ADDICTION AND IT WAS

GETTING WORSE.

I WAS LOOKING IN THE

MIRROR AND

I COULDN'T STAND THE PERSON

I WAS

LOOKING AT.

THEN IN A

BOARDINGHOUSE, HE

WENT ON ADDICTION FOR 30

DAYS.

IT WAS HOPELESS.

IT'S LIKE AM I GOING TO

COME OUT

OF THIS? CAN I COME OUT OF

THIS?

MARTIN'S GIRLFRIEND

FOUND HIM

AND HELPED HIM CLEAN UP.

THE NEXT MORNING SHE TOOK

HIM TO

CHURCH AND THE PASTOR CAME

TO

MARTIN.

HE LAID HANDS-ON ME AND

HE

PRAYED.

I JUST SAID, I'M DONE.

I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE.

IT WAS I GUESS, I GUESS

WHAT I

FELT WAS GOD'S LOVE FOR ME

IN

SPITE OF MYSELF.

I HATED MYSELF, BUT GOD

LOVED ME

IN SPITE OF MY

DISOBEDIENCE, MY

IGNORANCE, ALL THE WRONG I

HAD

DONE.

I GUESS IT'S HIS GRACE.

IT'S HIS MERCY.

AT THAT POINT, I KNEW THE

LOVE OF

GOD. I KNEW THE LOVE OF

CHRIST.

AND IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

MARTIN FINALLY GAVE GOD

CONTROL

OF HIS LIFE.

I WAS SET FREE.

I WAS NO LONGER A SLAVE TO

NOT

ONLY ADDICTION OF CRACK

COCAINE

BUT THE LIFESTYLE. I WAS NO

LONGER

A SLAVE.

THAT WAS NOT MY DEFAULT AT

ANY

POINT FROM THAT POINT ON.

MARTIN ADMITS HE HAD A

RELAPSE,

BUT HE STOPPED AND ADMITTED

TO GOD.

TODAY HE MENTORS AT RISK

YOUTH.

THOSE THINGS THAT HAD ME

BEFORE, THEY DON'T HAVE

THAT POWER

TO ENSLAVE ME TO MISGUIDE

ME, TO

MISLEAD ME.

I CORE CRIES OUT.

FROM THE VERY DEPTH OF MY

BEING

THAT WORDS CAN'T TOUCH

BECAUSE

THEY FALL SHORT.

THAT'S WHAT CHRIST IS TO ME.

THAT'S WHAT JESUS CHRIST IS

TO ME.

Pat: WORDS FALL SHORT.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE

LOVE OF

GOD.

YOU SEE, YOU ASK YOURSELF,

I ASK

MYSELF, HERE IS MARTIN.

HE'S BEATEN UP PEOPLE, HE'S

BINGING ON DRUGS, HE'S A

DERELICT,

HE'S A DANGER TO HIMSELF

AND

SOCIETY.

WHY NOT JUST THROW HIM

ASIDE.

HE'S WORTHLESS, ISN'T HE?

NOT IN

THE EYES OF GOD.

GOD SAYS HE'S PRECIOUS.

MARTIN IS PRECIOUS, AND GOD

SAYS

YOU ARE PRECIOUS.

YOU SEE IT LOOKS LIKE

MARTIN, HE

WAS GONE, HE WAS SHOT, HE

WAS

FINISHED.

BUT GOT WASN'T FINISHED.

SUDDENLY WHEN MARTIN

REALIZED THE

LOVE OF GOD, HE WAS

TRANSFORMED.

HE IS A CREATION.

ALL THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY

AND ALL

THINGS ARE NEW. MARTIN

CRIED TO

THE LORD AND THE LORD HEARD

AND

THE LORD ANSWERED.

PRAY THESE WORDS WILL YOU

WITH ME

RIGHT NOW? JESUS, PRAY

THESE

WORDS.

JESUS, I'M A SINNER, LORD.

I KNOW THE WORLD WOULD SAY

I'M

WORTHLESS, BUT JESUS, I

KNOW YOU

DIED FOR ME AND YOU SAID

I'M

PRECIOUS.

SO, LORD, I WANT YOU.

I TURN MY LIFE FROM THE SIN

OF MY

LIFE AND I TURN IT OVER TO

YOU.

TAKE MY LIFE, LORD JESUS,

AND USE

ME FOR YOUR GLORY. I GIVE

YOU MY

HEART AND I THANK YOU THAT

YOU

HAVE GIVEN YOUR LIFE FOR ME.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I'M

YOURS.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU LORD.
