GOSPEL LEGEND SHIRLEY

CESAR.

SHE'S TOPPED THE CHARTS FOR

OVER 50

YEARS AND SHE'S NOT DONE

YET.

AND NEXT, CURTIS GRANDERSON.

HE'S LEADING HOME RUNS.

JUST LEAVE IT TO HIM AND

THE PLAN

WILL TAKE SHAPE.

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN

TO THIS EDITION OF THE "700

CLUB". I

TOLD YOU IN THE BIBLE IT'S

EZEKIEL

38 THAT IT WILL COME UNDER

COALITION

WITH ISRAEL AND JOINED WITH

IRAN.

IT'S GOING TO BE A

COALITION THAT'S

GOING TO COME AGAINST

ISRAEL IN THE

LATTER DAYS. I KNEW THAT

WHERE HE

BEGAN DOING WHAT HE WAS

GOING TO DO,

IF HE IS GOING TO SWING

THAT COUNTRY

INTO AN ISLAMIST STATE OF

IRAN.

THE FAILED COUP, I THINK IT

WAS PUT

ON AND NOT REAL. I THINK IT

WAS A

FAINT, AN ROUST.

HE EXERCISED POWER WITH

THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE THERE.

IT'S EDUCATOR.

AND HE WILL BE AN

UNDISPUTED LEADER

AND TURN THAT COUNTRY INTO

AN

ISLAMIC STATE.

Wendy: PAT, NOW GIVING

HIM MORE

AUTHORITY AND NOW THERE ARE

NEW

DANGERS IN TURKEY AS WELL.

THEY ARE USE THE FAILED

COUP TO

RESHAPE TURKEY.

SOME SAY IT IS A REBOOT OF

THE

POPULAR LEADER.

WHAT HAS BEEN LABELED A

BACKLASH.

IT'S DETAINED OVER 15,000

AND

ARRESTED 8,000.

IN A SPEECH TO IS FOLLOWERS

AS THE

PRESIDENT OF THE DEMOCRACY

SAID. FOR

ONE TIME ONLY I WILL BE FOR

GIVING

THOSE WHO DISRESPECTED ME

AND

INSULTED ME AND WILL DRAW

AWAY

CHARGES AGAINST THEM.

SOMEWHERE IN TURKEY IS

BECOMING LIKE

IRAN AND PUTTING CHRISTIANS

AT EVEN

GREATER RISK. PROTESTANTS

ARE NOT

ALLOWED TO BUILDING

CHURCHES AND

MUST BE CALLED ASSOCIATIONS.

SOME WERE ATTACKED AFTER

THE COUP

ATTEMPT.

TURKEY WHICH HAS A FEW

MILLION

CHRISTIANS, NOW HAVE MAYBE

EVEN

100,000.

THEY FEAR THEY WILL BE

TURNED INTO A

MOSQUE.

THE AIR BASE IS ALSO AT

RISK FROM

RISING SLAMMISM.

THEY ACCUSE THE U.S. OF

ATTACKING

MUSLIM NATIONS. AFTER THE

COUP

ATTACK IT'S CREATED A

BREACH IN

RELATIONS WITH TURKEY

WESTERN

ALLIES. THEY ARE WATCHING

TURKEY

TURN INTO A DICTATORSHIP.

THEY SAY

RELATION WITH THE WEST WILL

CONTINUE.

BUT THEY HAVE NO PLACE IN

OUR HEARTS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: TURKEY WAS A SECULAR

DEMOCRACY AND THEN AFTER

WORLD WAR I

THEY JOINED IN THE

COALITION OF THE

EUROPEAN NATIONS AND IT WAS

A

FLOURISHING DEMOCRACY.

NOW IT'S TURNING INTO AN

ISLAMIC

LEADERSHIP. THIS IS ALL IN

THE

BIBLE. THIS IS THE LAND

WHERE ALL

THE VARIOUS CHURCHES OF

ASIA WRITTEN

ABOUT IN THE BOOK OF

REVELATIONS.

IT'S TURKEY AND ALL IN ASIA.

TURKEY WAS THE HOME OF A

STRONG

CHRISTIANITY OF A STRONG

CHRISTIAN

CHURCH AND NOW THEY ARE

FEARING

BEING PERSECUTED.

WELL, THEY HAVE THE BUZZ

OFF AND

THEY ARE BACK AT IT.

IT'S GOING TO BE A NASTY

ELECTION.

SO GET USED TO IT.

DONALD TRUMP AND HILLARY

CLINTON ARE

BOTH FACING QUESTIONS AND

CRITICISM

ON WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN

SAYING DURING

THEIR PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

JOHN HAS THAT STORY.

John: THAT'S RIGHT, PAT.

DONALD TRUMP HAS COME UNDER

FIRE

FROM THE PARENTS OF A U.S.

MILITARY

SOLDIER WHO DIED FIGHTING

IN IRAQ.

I PRODUCED THOUSANDS OF

JOBS.

THE LATEST WHO

CHALLENGED DID --

DONALD TRUMP TO SET THE

EXAMPLE FOR

THE COUNTRY.

AND FOR HILLARY CLINTON WHO

DEFENDED

HER USE OF HER PRIVATE

E-MAIL SERVER.

I MADE A MISTAKE FOR NOT

USING

TWO E-MAIL ADDRESSES. I

HAVE SAID

THAT AND I WILL REPEAT IT

AGAIN

TODAY.

IT IS CERTAINLY NOT

ANYTHING THAT I

WOULD EVER DO AGAIN. I TAKE

CLASSIFICATION SERIOUSLY. I

RELIED

ON AND HAD EVERY REASON TO

RELY ON

THE JUDGMENTS OF THE

PROFESSIONALS

WITH WHOM I WORKED.

BUT FBI DIRECTOR JAMES

COALMY SAY

THAT E-MAILS WENT FROM

HILLARY

CLINTON'S SERVER AND SHE'S

RELEADING

ON TECHNICAL AND LEGALISTIC

ANSWERS.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS

IN

SCHOOL, AND OUR HERO AT

THAT TIME

WAS A MAN NAMED JOE LEWIS.

HE WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST

BOXER.

JOE LEWIS DOESN'T FIGHT IN

BARS.

SOMEONE HAS TO GET THE WORD

TO

DONALD TRUMP, YOU ARE GOING

TO BE

THE LEADER OF THE FREE

WORLD, YOU

DON'T GET INTO BRAWLS IN

BARROOMS.

WAIT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP.

LEWIS WOULD WAIT FOR THE

CHAMPIONSHIP BUT HE

WOULDN'T FIGHT

IN BAR ROOMS. STOP IT.

SOME SAY LAST WEEK'S

ATTACK IN A

CATHOLIC CHURCH IN FRANCE,

REPRESENTS A MAJOR STEP FOR

ISIS

TERRORIST. IT'S THE FIRST

ASSAULT

FOR A CHURCH IN THE WEST

AND SOME

FEAR IT WON'T BE THE LAST.

Reporter: WHEN TO ISIS

FIGHTING

TERRORIST MURDERED A

CATHOLIC PRIEST

IN A TOWN, THROUGH SHOCK

WAVES TO

THE WESTERN WORLD.

THEY HAVE BEEN SUFFERING

THIS

KIND OF FATE FOR YEARS AND

YEARS.

THIS IS POST THE 911 WORLD.

CHRISTIANS AND MINISTERS

HAVE BEEN

SUFFERING FEROCIOUSLY IN

THE MIDDLE

EAST.

THIS JIHADI TACTIC IS NOW

BROUGHT TO

EUROPE AND TO THE CONTINENT.

WE SHOULD PROBABLY EXPECT

MORE.

IN THE PAST SEVERAL

MONTHS

ISLAMIC TERRORIST HAVE

SHIFTED OVER

THE WEST FROM BRUSSELS AND

NOW

REACHING THE US TO ORLANDO,

FLORIDA.

AMERICA IS THE MOST

POWERFUL

NATION THE WORLD HAS EVER

SEEN AND

THE IDEA THAT THOUSANDS ARE

DEAD THE

JIHADIST ARE STILL WINNING

THIS WAR.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE.

DR. SEBASTIAN NAMES THE

ENEMY AS

THE MAIN REASON FOR

CONTINUED LOSES.

IN FACT IN TODAY'S OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION YOU CAN'T

EVEN TALK

ABOUT WHO THE ENEMY IS.

YOU CAN'T MENTION RELIGION.

WORDS

LIKE JIHAD ARE IN FACT

OFFICIALLY

PROHIBITED WHEN YOU TALK TO

MILITARY, WHEN YOU PROVIDE

TRAINING

TO OUR ENFORCEMENT.

THAT COMES RIGHT OUT OF THE

WHITE

HOUSE.

IN HIS BOOK, HE SAYS

LEADERS NEED

TO TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE

COLD WAR.

HOW DID WE WIN THAT WAR?

WE

DIDN'T FIRE SHOTS IN

NOVEMBER OF

1989.

WE WON IT BY DELEGITIMIZING

THEM.

BY WANTING TO TAKE IT APART

THEMSELVES BY THEIR OWN

HANDS.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO DO

TODAY.

HE ALSO BELIEVES THE

WEST NEED TO

EMPOWER MUSLIM NATIONS LIKE

JORDAN

AND EGYPT TO TAKE ON ISIS

AND

RECOGNIZE ISLAMIC EXTREMISM

FOR WHAT

IT IS.

THE IDEA THAT YOU CAN'T

CALL IT

JIHADI, THAT HAS TO BE FROM

DAY ONE.

TALK ABOUT THE ENEMY AS

THEY TALK

ABOUT THEMSELVES TRUTHFULLY

AND

RECOGNIZE THAT THEY ARE

EVIL.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: THANKS, CHRIS.

THE ECONOMY IS GROWING AT

1% SO FAR

THIS YEAR. PRESIDENT BARACK

OBAMA

TALKS ABOUT THE GROWTH ON

THIS

ECONOMY THIS YEAR.

WE SHOULD BE PROUD OF

THE

PROGRESS WE HAVE MADE. WE

HAVE

RECOVERED FROM THE WORST

ECONOMIC

CRISIS SINCE THE 1930s AND

THE WORSE

IN MY LIFETIME AND THE

PEOPLE IN

THIS ROOM.

WE HAVE DONE IT FASTER,

STRONGER,

BETTER AND MORE DURABLY

THAN ANY

OTHER ADVANCED ECONOMY.

THE GROWTH AFTER THIS

EXPANSION

HAS BEEN BY FAR THE WEAKEST

SINCE

1989.

> IF YOU ARE NOT RESTING

WELL

BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT GETTING

ENOUGH

SLEEP.

RESEARCH SHOWS THAT PEOPLE

THAT GOT

LESS THAN 25% SLEEP HAVE

MEMORY

PROBLEMS.

IT WILL RETURN TO BETTER

QUALITY OF

LIFE.

PAT, I CAN'T DISAGREE

WITH ANYONE

WITH THAT.

Pat: WHEN I WAS IN

COLLEGE, I WAS

UP STUDYING FOR EXAMS AT 5

AM AND

4:00 A.M..

I DIDN'T GET ANY SLEEP BUT

I DID

PRETTY WELL ON EXAMS.

DID YOU DRINK A LOT OF

COFFEE?

YES.

EVERYTHING IS BETTER

WHEN YOU GET

ENOUGH SLEEP.

Wendy: FROM CLAY HILLS TO

THE

NORTH CAROLINA WALK OF

FAME, SHIRLEY

CAESAR TELLS US WHY THE

BEST IS YET

TO COME.

JESUS HAS GIVEN ME A

BRAND NEW

TURN AROUND.

THE GOSPEL LEADERS MEETS

WITH

EFREM GRAHAM.

DON'T GO AWAY. BEN-HUR.

Pat: WE ARE GLAD YOU ARE

WITH US

AT THE "700 CLUB" TODAY. WE

ARE

STARTING A NEW WEEK AND

IT'S A GREAT

WEEK. SHE'S A LEGEND IN

GOSPEL MUSIC.

SHIRLEY CAESAR HAS WON 14

GRAMMY'S,

18 DOVE AWARDS AND NOW HAS

A STAR ON

THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME.

THE SENGER AND PASTOR

TELLS EFREM

GRAHAM SHE HAS MORE SHE

WANTS TO DO.

*

Efrem: PASTOR SHIRLEY

CAESAR HAS A

POWERFUL VOICE. SHE'S BEEN

SHARING

MUSIC FOR ABOUT 50 YEARS.

SHE FIRST MADE HER MARK

WITH GOSPEL

PIONEERS.

THEY FILLED THIS HOUSE.

THIS IS YOUR

LATEST PROJECT?

YES IT IS.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE

THIS

PARTICULAR WORK?

ANOINTED.

WE WORKED FEVERISHLY TO

BRING IT

INTO FRUITION. ONE OF MY

GOD

DAUGHTERS GAVE ME THE IDEA

OF GOING

ONLINE AND PUTTING IT OUT

THERE,

WRITE MY SONG. SONGS CAME

IN BY THE

HUNDREDS AND IT WAS ONE OF

THEM.

YOU PAIRED WITH ANTHONY

HAMILTON

ON THAT SINGLE.

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN, WAS

IT YOUR

IDEA?

NO.

THE DIRECTOR CAME TO ME.

I RECORDED THE WHOLE SONG

BY MYSELF.

WHAT THEY DID WAS, THEY

JUST SLID

THAT SECOND VERSE OUT.

THEY JUST WENT IN THERE AND

TORE IT

UP.

THIS IS A MILESTONE FOR

PASTOR

CAESAR.

A FIRST SENSE THE DEATH OF

HER

HUSBAND.

AND HER FIRST WALK OF FAME.

AS A MEMBER OF THE

HOLLYWOOD WALK OF

FAME.

50 YEARS AS A SOLO

RECORDING

ARTIST.

YES.

YOU GOT A STAR ON THE

HOLLYWOOD

WALK OF FAME?

YES.

HOW ARE YOU FEELING?

I AM EXCITED.

ME? FROM THE HILLS OF

NORTH

CAROLINA.

ME, LITTLE OLD SHIRLEY?

MANY TIMES

I SIT UP AT NIGHT AND I

SAY, I CAN'T

BELIEVE IT.

NOW MY NAME IS RIGHT UP

THERE IN

FRONT OF THE THEATRE WITH

LUCY BALL

AND NOW SHIRLEY CAESAR.

UNBELIEVABLE.

HOW DO YOU CONTINUE AS

YOU GET

OLDER TO STAY SO RELEVANT?

WELL, FOR YEARS, THEY

WERE LENGTH

TO THE OLD SHIRLEY CAESAR.

THE OLD SONGS, LIKE NO

CHARGE.

SATAN, WE ARE GOING TO TEAR

YOUR

KINGDOM DOWN.

OPRAH WINFREY RECENTLY

INVITED

HER TO WRITE HER SONG FOR

HER

NETWORK.

IT WAS THOSE SONGS THAT

REALLY

KEPT ME ALIVE, BUT, 1 DAY,

A

POWERFUL SONG JUST STARTED

COMING MY

WAY.

IT JUST SEEMED LIKE THE

LORD HAS

GIVEN ME A BRAND NEW TURN

AROUND.

I BELIEVE NOW SEEMINGLY

THAT MY

LATTER IS NOW EVEN GREATER

THAN MY

PAST.

PASTOR CAESAR'S NEW SONG

SPEAK TO

CONCERNS FROM A DEADLY

VIOLENCE TO A

CHURCH IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

IT'S THE SAME CHURCH WHERE

SHE

RECEIVED HER FIRST HONORARY

DOCTORATE DEGREE 35 YEARS

AGO.

NINE WORSHIPERS IN THE

CHURCH

WORSHIPPING. THIS YOUNG MAN

COMES

IN, SITS THERE.

ENJOY, THEY LOVE ON HIM AND

WELCOME

HIM AND THIS COWARD TAKES

THEIR

LIVES.

MAY I SAY, WHERE IS THE

CAMERA? MAY

I SAY, IT TOOK ME 2 WEEKS,

I'M BEING

HONEST, TO FORGIVE THAT

YOUNG MAN

BECAUSE HE WAS A COWARD.

TOOK ME TO BIBLE STUDIES AS

WE

DISCUSSED IT, TALKED ABOUT

IT.

WHY? HOW COULD SOMEBODY

COME INTO

GOD'S HOUSE.

THE BIBLE STUDIES GAVE

BIRTH TO A

SONG.

THAT'S ALSO ON HER FILL

THIS HOUSE

PROJECT.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU

ARE STILL

LOOKING TO DO? YOU'VE

ACTED, YOU

GOT YOUR STAR ON THE WALK

OF FAME.

YOU PASTORED? IS THERE

ANYTHING

ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO?

I WOULD LIKE THE -- TO

DO MORE

ACTING.

THE PASTOR ALREADY HAS A

MOVIE ON

THE WORKS.

NORTH CAROLINA.

AS YOU JUST SAW PASTOR

CAESAR IS

NOT SLOWING DOWN.

SHE'S INVITED PEOPLE TO HER

CHURCH

IN RALEIGH FOR A WEEK LONG

CONFERENCE FOR SOME PEOPLE

FROM HER

MINISTRY.

WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION

ABOUT THAT

ON OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM. HERE

IS WENDY?

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

COMING UP, A MOM SO

DESPERATE FOR

MONEY, SHE BECAME A MADAM.

I HAD NO HEART LEFT.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE LIVING

ANYMORE.

EVERY JOHN CHIPS AWAY AT

YOUR SOUL

AND TAKES APIECE OF YOUR

SOUL.

THE DEAL THAT RESTORED

HER BODY

AND SOUL, NEXT.

AND SOUL, NEXT.

> TANIA NEEDED QUICK

MONEY TO PAY

HER LAWYER FEES AFTER A

CUSTODY

BATTLE. SHE DID SOMETHING

SHE NEVER

THOUGHT SHE WOULD DO.

SHE SOLD HER BODY. BEFORE

LONG, SHE

NEARLY LOST HER SOUL.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE

LOVED, AND

I WAS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR MY

FATHER'S

ACCEPTANCE, AND I GREW UP

THINKING

ABUSE WAS NORMAL.

THAT'S ALL I HAD SEEN.

THE ONLY TIME HER FATHER

GAVE HER

ATTENTION WAS WHEN HE BEAT

HER. WHEN

SHE WAS 11, SOCIAL SERVICES

GAVE HER

MOM A CHOICE.

HER HUSBAND OR HER CHILD.

I WAS HURT WHEN MY MOM

CHOSE MY

FATHER OVER ME. I WAS PUT

IN 13

FOSTER HOMES IN 1 YEAR. I

WAS MOVING

AROUND FASTER THAN I CAN

UNPACK MY

SUIT CASE.

SHE WAS A WARD OF THE

STATE AS A

TEEN AND HAD A CHILD AT 15.

THEN SHE GOT MARRIED.

I MARRIED SOMEONE LIKE

MY FATHER.

EVERYDAY HE WAS TELLING ME

I WAS

STUPID, I WAS UGLY, I

WASN'T GOOD

ENOUGH.

I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I WAS

WORTHY OF

BEING LOVED BY ANYONE.

SHE MOVED WITH HER KIDS

TO A

WOMEN'S SHELTER TO ESCAPE

THE

VIOLENCE. BUT HER HUSBAND

CHALLENGED

HER FOR CUSTODY.

TANIA NEEDED $11,000 FOR AN

ATTORNEY

THEN AN AD CAUGHT HER EYE.

THE AD SAID, A FUN

FRIENDLY WORK

ENVIRONMENT.

IT SEEMED ALMOST

UNBELIEVABLE TO BE

TRUE.

IT WAS.

THE JOB WAS PROSTITUTION.

TANIA TOOK THE JOB.

I REMEMBER COMING HOME

THAT NIGHT

AFTER MAKING MY FIRST

$1700, AND I

JUMPED IN THE SHOWER AND I

JUST

COULDN'T STOP THE SCRUBBING

OF MY

BODY. I JUST FELT SO DIRTY.

SHE PROSTITUTED HERSELF

FOR

SEVERAL YEARS AND WENT

DEEPER INTO

THE SEX INDUSTRY.

EVENTUALLY OWNED SEVERAL

BROTHELS

WITH HUNDREDS OF GIRLS

WORKING FOR

HER, BUT HER NEW LIFESTYLE

TOOK A

TOLL.

MY SPIRIT WAS BROKEN.

ON THE OUTSIDE ACCORDING TO

THE

WORLD, I APPEARED TO HAVE

IT ALL.

BUT INSIDE, I HAD NOTHING.

I HAD NO

HEART LEFT.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE LIVING

ANYMORE.

EVERY JOHN THAT YOU ARE

WITH, IT

CHIPS AWAY AT YOUR SOUL AND

TAKES A

PIECE OF YOUR SOUL AND

EVENTUALLY

YOU ARE WALKING DEAD.

MEANWHILE THE CUSTODY

BATTLE

LASTED 4 YEARS.

AND WORD GOT FROM THE MEDIA

ABOUT

HER WORK. HER CHANCES OF

GETTING HER

CHILDREN WERE SLIM. SHE

KNEW IT.

TANIA MADE A DEAL WITH GOD.

I WAS ANGRY WITH GOD MY

WHOLE

LIFE.

WHY WOULD I HAVE THIS

CHILDHOOD? MY

GRANDMOTHER WAS ON HER

DEATH BED AND

SHE WOULD TELL ME, TANIA,

YOU HAVE

TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO GOD. I

SAID, I

HATE GOD. SHE SAID. THE GOD

NEVER

TURNED HIS BACK ON YOU.

YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON

HIM. HE'S

ALWAYS BEEN THERE.

1 DAY I WAS ON MY KNEES AND

I WAS

WEEPING.

I SAID, GOD, I DON'T LIKE

YOU.

I HATE YOU RIGHT NOW.

WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN? YOU

KNOW, BUT

I KEPT HEARING ABOUT YOU.

AND IF YOU GIVE ME CUSTODY,

THEN I

WILL BELIEVE YOU ARE REAL

BECAUSE IT

WILL BE A MIRACLE. IF YOU

DO, I WILL

GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU.

I WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY JUST

READING

THE PAPER AND IT SAID,

"PORN

INDUSTRY MOM, WINS OLD

CUSTODY" I

THOUGHT WOW, IF THEY ARE

GIVING IT

TO PORN STARS, MAYBE I HAVE

A

CHANCE. I READ A LITTLE

FURTHER.

TANIA GOT FULL CUSTODY. GOD

HAD

GIVEN ME FULL CUSTODY.

TANIA SHUTDOWN HER

BROTHEL AND

WALKED AWAY FROM HER LIFE

AS A

MADAM. SHE WENT TO CHURCH.

GOD GIVES US HIS HAND

AND WE

DON'T TAKE IT.

I REALIZED THAT GOD WAS

THERE FOR ME.

IT WAS ME THAT I TURNED MY

BACK ON

HIM. GOD WAS ALWAYS THERE.

HE CAN TAKE OUR HARDSHIPS

AND TURN

IT INTO GLORY.

TANIA WORKED WITH PEOPLE

IN THE

BROTHEL.

WHEN I WORKED WITH THESE

PEOPLE

WHO HAVE BEEN BOUGHT AND

SOLD

EVERYDAY AND THEY HAVE NO

HOPE.

AND I SEE THEM LED TO

CHRIST AND NOW

SAVED.

THERE IS NO BIGGER JOY THAN

THAT.

TO KNOW THAT GOD USED ME TO

HELP

THEM GET OUT OF THAT.

NOW THAT THE LORD HAS COME

INTO MY

LIFE, I KNOW I HAVE A

PURPOSE AND A

CALLING.

AND I KNOW, THAT I'M WORTHY

OF BEING

LOVED.

AND I KNOW THERE IS A GOD.

JESUS STILL LOVES ME MORE

THAN I

EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE.

Pat: WHAT A STORY.

I'M WORTHY TO BE LOVED.

I'M WORTHY TO BE LOVED.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE

WHO FEEL

THEY ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE

LOVED.

BUT GOD SAYS YOU ARE WORTHY.

HE SAYS I LOVE YOU.

YOU ARE CREATED IN MY IMAGE.

YOU SEE, HE SEE'S THE END

FROM THE

BEGINNING. HE DIDN'T GO TO

TANIA

AFTER THE SUFFERING AND THE

ABUSE

THAT SHE ENDURED AND THE

LIFESTYLE

SHE HAD CHOSEN IN THE PORN

INDUSTRY

AS A MADAM.

HE SAW A CHILD OF GOD

SERVING HIM TO

HELP OTHERS.

HE SEE'S YOU AS HE CAN MAKE

YOU IF

YOU TURN YOUR LIFE OVER TO

HIM.

AND HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.

YOU ARE WORTHY TO BE LOVED.

DON'T THINK YOU SEND AWAY

YOUR

CHANCES.

DON'T THINK YOU ARE DIRTY

OR DON'T

THINK BECAUSE SOMEBODY SAYS

YOU ARE

UGLY YOU ARE UGLY.

DON'T THINK THAT.

GOD SEE'S YOU AS BEAUTIFUL,

AS A

RADIANT CHILD OF THE KING.

TANIA

MADE A DECISION THAT I'M

GOING TO

ACCEPT JESUS AS MY SAVIOR.

IF YOU WANT THAT, I'M GOING

TO GIVE

YOU AN OPPORTUNITY RIGHT

NOW, RIGHT

THIS VERY MINUTE, NOW.

I WANT YOU TO STOP WHAT YOU

ARE

DOING, I WANT YOU TO BOW

YOUR HEAD

AND PRAYER THIS PRAYER WITH

ME.

IF YOU WILL SAY THE WORDS

AT THAT

I'M SAYING AND FOLLOW IT IN

YOUR

HEART, GOD WILL GIVE YOU

THIS

MIRACLE.

THAT'S RIGHT, RIGHT WHERE

YOU ARE.

JESUS, YOU KNOW I'M A

SINNER. I

CONFESS THAT I HURT YOU,

THAT I HURT

OTHERS AND I HURT MYSELF. I

CONFESS

THAT I HAVE SINNED AGAINST

ALMIGHTY

GOD, BUT I KNOW THAT YOU

DIED FOR

ME, AND I RECEIVE YOUR LOVE.

I NEED LOVE, LORD, I KNOW

THAT YOU

LOVE ME.

SO AT THIS MOMENT, I OPEN

MY HEART

TO YOU AND I ASK YOU TO

COME IN.

THANK YOU, JESUS.

THAT YOU'VE HEARD MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE

COME INTO MY

HEART.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

NOW, I

WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

FATHER, IN

JESUS NAME, TOUCH THESE

ONES IN THIS

AUDIENCE. THESE WHO ARE

WORTHY TO BE

LOVED. THESE WHO ARE YOUR

CHILDREN

YOUR

SPIRIT, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, AMEN.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU THIS

GIFT. I MADE

VERY

CONSCIOUS DECISION THAT YOU

JUST

THE METS OUTFIELDER

IT WAS JESUS:

Efrem: WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON.

GARCIA HAD BEEN THE

PRESIDENT OF

CHRISTIAN NETWORK AFTER

TAKING OVER

AFTER THE DEATH OF HER

FATHER IN 08.

SHE SHARED NEWS ABOUT HER

CANCER IN

MARCH. SHE WAS THE

RELIGIOUS

BROADCASTER IN 2012 AND

SERVING IN

THE STANDING COMMITTEE FOR

YEARS.

GARCIA PASSED AWAY LAST

WEEK IN

MEXICO.

> A SERVICE FOR POOR AND

AT RISK

YOUTH WERE ADMITTED TO A

CAMP.

THEY WILL BE LEARNING BIBLE

STORIES

AND BE TOLD ABOUT CHRIST.

HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN

RECEIVED JESUS.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT

WHAT CBN

IS DOING AROUND THE WORLD

BY GOING

TO CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL.

PAT AND

WENDY WILL BE RIGHT BACK

RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

NOW.

Wendy: THIS MAY NOT BE

SOMETHING

YOU EXPECT TO HEAR ABOUT A

NEW

YORKER BUT CURTIS

GRANDERSON ALWAYS

HAS A SMILE ON HIS FACE AND

AS HE

TOLD US HE ALWAYS WANTS TO

BRING A

SMILE TO OTHERS AS WELL.

SINCE HIS MAJOR LEAGUE

DEBUT WITH

CURTIS GRANDERSON HAS DONE

WELL. HIS

FAITH IN THE LORD HELPS HIM

KEEP HIS

COOL.

PEOPLE SAY, WHY DON'T

YOU SLAM

YOUR HELMET AND BREAK YOUR

BAT AND

YELL AND CUS AT

EVERYBODY.

HE'S FROM ILLINOIS.

CHRISTIANITY HAS ALWAYS

BEEN PART

OF MY LIFE. I WAS BAPTIZED

AT THE

AGE OF 12 BY MY

GRANDMOTHER'S CHURCH.

I SPOKE WITH HER TODAY.

CURTIS BEGAN HIS CAREER

WITH THE

DETROIT TIGERS BEFORE GOING

TO THE

YANKEES.

HE HAS TO PRACTICE DAILY TO

PERFORM

AT HIS BEST. BUT HE PRAISES

GOD FOR

HIS PERFORMANCE.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I TRY TO NOT WORRY ABOUT

MUCH.

I'M BLESSED WITH GREAT

COACHES THAT

PUT ME IN SITUATIONS. WHEN

IT'S TIME

FOR THE BALL TO BE PITCHED

TO ME, WE

HAVE THE HOURS AND

MECHANICS THAT

NOW WE HAVE TO TRUST GOD TO

ALLOW ME

TO DO WHAT I'M PREPARED FOR.

IT'S THE RIGOROUS 162

GAMES OF A

REGULAR SEASON.

OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE GOING

TO HAVE

UPS AND DOWNS AND YOU ARE

GOING TO

HAVE INJURIES AND THE WAY

YOU

RESPOND AND HOW PEOPLE SEE

THAT HAS

GIVEN ME THE STRENGTH TO GO

OUT

THERE AND UNDERSTAND THAT.

JUST LAYOUT THE PLAN AND IT

WILL BE

LAID OUT IN SHAPE.

HE'S THE MOST RECOGNIZED

IN

BASEBALL.

HE ASKED THE COMPANY TO

GIVE THE

EQUIPMENT TO A FOUNDATION

AND KIDS

BASEBALL PROGRAMS.

THE INITIAL DEALS THAT

THOSE

COMPANIES BRING TO YOU, YOU

GET PAID

WITH CASH AND MERCHANDISE

WHICH IS

GREAT. ALL OF MY FRIENDS

WERE

OUTFITTED IN NIKE GEAR AND

ALL OF

THAT, AND AFTER THE FIRST

AND SECOND

YEAR, I STARTED REALIZING

THAT ALL

OF THEM HAVE GREAT STUFF

AND KIDS

CAMP WOULD SAY, I NEED

GLOVES AND

SHOES AND THAT.

LET'S TAKE WHAT WE HAVE AND

SWITCH

IT OVER.

DON'T PAY ME MONETARILY.

JUST DO THAT.

THEY HAVE ACCEPTED THAT AND

RUN WITH

IT.

THIS YEAR, CURTIS IS ON

TRACK TO

HIT MANY MORE HOME RUNS. HE

SAYS

THAT HE UNDERSTAND THAT

NONE OF THE

FAME, AWARDS OR MONEY WOULD

HAVE

BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

THE BIGGEST THING ABOUT

HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST IS TO

REALIZE THAT WE ARE HERE

BECAUSE OF

HIM AND WE GET TO DO THESE

THINGS

THROUGH HIM. THERE IS

ALWAYS GOING

TO BE TRIALS AND

TRIBULATIONS THAT

WE GO THROUGH AND THERE ARE

UPS AND

DOWNS FOR YOU.

ALTHOUGH IT LOOK DIFFERENT

ON THE

OUTSIDE.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE YOU,

WHAT DO YOU

WANT THEM TO SEE?

I WANT THEM TO SEE THAT

I WORK

HARD AND I TRY TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF

THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE

LAID OUT

IN FRONT OF ME.

IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG

WITH ME, I

TRY TO MAKE IT THE BEST

POSSIBLE.

AND BE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT

CHRIST CAN

DO FOR YOU AND WHAT CHRIST

HAS IN

STORE FOR YOU.

Wendy: YOU ARE A LIVING

EXAMPLE OF

THAT.

WELL, IT'S A NEW MONTH

AND COMING

UP NEXT, WE HAVE A NEW

ROUND OF

BRINGING IT ON. REGINA

SAYS, I FEEL

GOD WILL HEAL ME BUT HE

HASN'T.

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

DON'T GO

AWAY.

TOMORROW ON THE "700

CLUB".

THIS WEEK'S TOP ON

DEMAND VIDEOS.

GO TO CBN.COM.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW A

SIMPLE GIFT

HELPED THIS MOTHER IN INDIA.

THIS GIFT HELD HER HOLD ON

A JOB AND

HELP HER WITH HER TWO

CHILDREN.

THEY LOST THEIR FATHER A

COUPLE

YEARS AGO.

HE WAS ELECTROCUTED IN A

JOB.

THEIR MOTHER HAD NO CHOICE

BUT TO

WORK IN THE FIELDS.

WE ARE SO SAD WHEN MY

MOTHER GOES

TO WORK AND WORKS IN THE

FIELD. WE

WOULD BE HAPPY IF SHE

STAYED AT

HOME.

WHAT I'M EARNING IS NOT

ENOUGH TO

BUY FOOD FOR MY DAUGHTERS

AND

MYSELF.

THEN 1 DAY, A LOCAL

PASTOR TOLD

HER ABOUT A CBN SPONSORED

SEWING

COURSE.

I LEARNED TO SEW MANY

THINGS.

SHE WANTED TO START HER

BUSINESS

BUT SHE HAD NO MONEY FOR A

SEWING

MACHINE.

AFTER SHE COMPLETED THE

COURSE, WE

GAVE HER A BRAND NEW ONE.

I WAS VERY HAPPY TO HAVE

A SEWING

MACHINE.

NOW I DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE

MY HOME TO

MAKE A LIVING. NOW I KNOW I

CAN

PROVIDE MY DAUGHTERS ALL

THEIR NEEDS.

WE ARE HAPPY WE ARE NOT

HOME

ALONE ANYMORE. THANK YOU

FOR GIVING

MY MOTHER A SEWING MACHINE.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP AND

SEE THE

JOY IN THEIR LIVES YOU CAN

DO IT BY

HELP OTHERS. LIKE THAT

FAMILY IN

INDIA, YOU CAN HELP.

WE WANT TO GIVE YOU AN

OPPORTUNITY

RIGHT NOW TO GO TO YOUR

PHONES.

THE NUMBER IS ON YOUR

SCREEN.

TOLL-FREE PHONE NUMBER:

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN LOG ON AND SAY,

YES, I

WANT TO JOIN THE "700 CLUB".

MEMBER: $20 A MONTH, JUST

$0.65 A

DAY.

THAT'S ALL IT TAKES TO

BECOME A

PARTNER.

WHEN YOU DO, WE'LL GIVE YOU

PAT'S CD

CALLED "VICTORY THROUGH

LIFE'S

STORMS" THERE WAS NO HOPE

AND GOD

STEPPED IN AND SHOWED US

WITH GOD

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

THIS IS

YOURS AS A GIFT RIGHT NOW

WHEN YOU

CALL.

WE ARE GOING TO E-MAIL.

VIRGINIA WRITES, EVERYDAY I

BEG FOR

GOD TO HEAL ME. I'M IN SO

MUCH PAIN.

WHAT AM I DOING SO WRONG.

NOW I HAVE

DEPRESSION AND WONDER WHY

I'M NOT

GOOD ENOUGH?

Pat: I DON'T THINK

HEALING HAS TO

DO WITH WHETHER YOU ARE

GOOD OR NOT.

IF I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY

HEART AND

THE LORD WILL NOT HEAL ME.

THAT'S

ONE OF THE THINGS.

IF YOU KNOW THAT SOMETHING

IS GOING

ON AND YOU ARE REBELLING,

GOD MAY

NOT BE ANSWERING YOUR

PRAYER. THE

POWER FLOWS FROM THE MIND

OF GOD TO

YOUR MIND TO YOUR SPIRIT TO

YOUR

MOUTH.

AND YOU SPEAK TO THE

CONDITION, YOU

DECLARE IT DONE. YOU SPEAK

TO THE

DEMON, YOU SPEAK TO THE

DISEASE,

SPEAK TO THE STORM. I THINK

INSTEAD

OF ALWAYS BEGGING GOD, WHY

DON'T YOU

RECEIVE WHAT HE SAYS AND

BEGIN TO

DECLARE THAT YOU ARE HEALED

IN THE

NAME OF JESUS AND BE

DECLARED BY THE

POWER AND STRIPES I AM

HEALED. BY

HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED.

AMEN.

Wendy: CINDY WRITES THIS,

ALMOST

EVERYDAY I HEAR ON THE "700

CLUB"

THAT GOD HAS A PLAN FOR

YOUR LIFE.

WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN BURNED

AND BEING

BURIED ALIVE IN EARTHQUAKES.

WHAT MAKES A FEW PEOPLE

SPECIAL TO

GOD BUT NOT MOST WHO LIVE

AND DIE IN

HELLISH CONDITIONS?

Pat: JESUS TOLD A STORY

ABOUT A

RICH MAN WHO DIED. HE LIVED

IN A

PALACE AND CLOTHED, AND AT

HIS TABLE

WAS A POOR MAN WHO WAS

CLOTHED IN

RAGS AND PROUD TO GET THE

SCRAPS

FROM THE TABLE.

THAT WAS THE CONDITION.

THEN THE

RICH MAN DIED AND HE WENT

TO HELL,

BUT THE POOR MAN DIED AND

THE BIBLE

SAID HE WAS CARRIED BY

ANGELS INTO

ABRAHAM'S BOSOM.

AND THEN THE RICH SAW THE

POOR MAN,

HE SAID FATHER ABRAHAM, YOU

LET THAT

POOR MAN DIP HIS FINGER IN

WATER.

I'M BEING TORMENTED BY

THESE FLAMES.

HE SAID, WHILE YOU WERE

ALIVE YOU

HAD IT GOOD AND HE HAD IT

BAD AND

NOW YOU ARE BEING TORMENTED

AND HE

IS BEING BLESSED.

THERE IS A CONTINUUM. IT

DOESN'T END

AT LIFE.

IT DOESN'T END AFTER 10 OR

15 YEARS.

IT GOES FROM THE MOMENT YOU

DIE AND

BEYOND INTO ETERNITY.

YOU CANNOT ASSESS GOD'S

GOODNESS ON

THE STRENGTH OF THE

MOMENTARY

EXPERIENCE THAT YOU KNOW

ABOUT.

GOD IS GOOD, AND THE MAKER

OF ALL

THE EARTH CANNOT DO WRONG.

HE'S GOT GOOD THINGS FOR

EVERYBODY,

BUT AS FAR AS HIS PLAN,

THAT

SCRIPTURE, THAT ONE

SCRIPTURE, I

THINK DEALS WITH THOSE WHO

ARE A

PART OF HIS COVENANT

FAMILY. HE'S

TALKING JEREMIAH WAS

TALKING TO THE

JEWS, HE WASN'T TALKING TO

THE WHOLE

WORLD.

Wendy: INTERESTING.

MARGARET SAYS,

IN THE BIBLE DOES IT SAY

ALL SAVED

ONCE SAVED?

IT'S NOT IN THE BIBLE.

YOU KNOW, JESUS SAID, MY

FATHER OWES

HIS HAND AND NOBODY CAN

TAKE YOU OUT

OF MY FATHER'S HAND. THAT'S

IN THE

BIBLE. I THINK THE WHOLE

IDEA OF

PRESUMING ON GOD, I HAVE

MADE A

DECISION THEREFORE I CAN

LIVE MY

LIFE ANYWAY I WANT TO

BECAUSE ONCE

SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED.

I THINK THAT IS A MISTAKE

BECAUSE WE

NEED TO RECOGNIZE WE WALK

BEFORE THE

LORD, AND I DON'T WANT TO

PRESUME ON

GOD TO SAY, WELL, I CAN

LIVE ANYWAY

I WANT TO.

I CAN GET DRUNK AND GO

AROUND AND

CURSE. BUT I HAVE BEEN

SAVED AND

THEREFORE I'M OKAY. NO WAY.

I THINK

THE BIBLE SAYS IS TO WALK

GENTLY

BEFORE THE LORD, AND I

BELIEVE

THAT'S WHAT YOUR MESSAGE

SHOULD BE.

NOT QUOTE ONCE SAVED ALWAYS

SAVED.

IN THE BIBLE, AS FAR AS

THOSE WORDS

ARE NOT.

Wendy: TO WALK OUT YOUR

FAITH AND

FEAR OF TREMBLING.

THAT'S IT. WALK OUT YOUR

FEARS.

YOUR OWN SALVATION WITH

FEAR AND

TREMBLING.

Wendy: MARY SAYS ONCE A

PERSON IS

BORN AGAIN, IS THERE A

SPIRIT THAT

IS NECESSARY FOR SALVATION?

NO, IT'S NOT NECESSARY

FOR

SALVATION, BUT THE BAPTISM

IN THE

SPIRIT THIS IS THE ENTRANCE

DOOR

INTO POWER.

AND, YOU KNOW, THERE WAS

THE

ANOINTING OF THE LORD TO

RECEIVE

JESUS' AS A SAVIOR AND

JESUS BAPTIST

US IN THE SPIRIT AND OPENS

UP

PROPHECY AND ABLE TO SPEAK

IN

TONGUES.

BUT FOR THE MINISTRY OF

JESUS.

ONE IS THE LIFE OF JESUS,

ONE IS THE

MINISTRY OF JESUS. THAT'S

ALL THE

TIME WE'VE GOT.

THESE ARE VERY GREAT

QUESTIONS AND

VERY DEEP.

I COULDN'T GIVE THEM THE

DETAIL THEY

DESERVE. WE LEAVE YOU WITH

A PRAYER

FROM PSALMS.

"TASTE AND SEE THAT THE

LORD IS

GOOD; BLESSED IS THE MAN

WHO TRUSTS

IN HIM!" (PSALM 34:8,

NKJV).

TOMORROW, THE TERRORIST

ATTACK THAT

CAN SEND US BACK TO THE

19TH

CENTURY, ACTUALLY BACK TO

THE STONE

AGE.

THIS IS A MAN WHO IS AN

EXPERT.

THIS IS ON TOMORROW'S "700

CLUB".

FROM WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS

PAT ROBERTSON. WE'LL SEE

YOU

TOMORROW. BYE, BYE.
