Efrem: FROM THE HEART

OF THE JUNGLE...

>JUNGLE...A REVIVAL

AMONG THE KEEPERS OF THE

FOREST.

> AND THEN...A CHILD OF

REFUGEES.

WHEN THEY GOT HERE,

THEY STARTED FROM SCRATCH.

SHE TRIES TO WORK HER

WAY TO THE TOP.

IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME

TO DO BETTER EVERY YEAR.

Efrem: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, IN CASE

YOU'VE BEEN IN MARS FOR

THE LAST MONTH OR SO, I

WANT TO TELL YOU ONE WEEK

FROM TODAY AMERICANS WILL

VOTE FOR OUR NEXT

PRESIDENT.

RIGHT NOW POLLS SHOW THAT

DONALD TRUMP HAS THE

MOMENTUM AFTER THE F.B.I.

ANNOUNCED THIS REOPENING

OF THE INVESTIGATION INTO

HILLARY CLINTON'S E-MAILS.

Terry: WELL, THE NEW

GOVERNMENT PROBE HAS

SHAKEN UP THE PRESIDENTIAL

RACE AS BOTH CANDIDATES

ARE FOCUSING ON WINNING

THE KEY BATTLEGROUND

STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

THE F.B.I. IS COMBING

OVER THOUSANDS OF E-MAILS

OF ANG ANTHONY WEINER.

WEINER IS UNDER

INVESTIGATION FOR

ALLEGEDLY SEXTING AN

UNDERAGE GIRLS, AND SOME

OF HIS WIFE'S E-MAILS

ENDED UP ON HIS LAPTOP'S

COMPUTER.

IT IS UNLIKELY THE REVIEW

WILL BE COMPLETED BY

ELECTION DAY.

THE RACE FOR THE WHITE

HOUSE HAS TIGHTENED

DRAMATICALLY IN THE LAST

SEVERAL DAYS.

THE GAP WAS CLOSING EVEN

BEFORE FRIDAY'S NEWS THAT

THE F.B.I. WOULD REOPEN

THE INVESTIGATION INTO

CLINTON'S E-MAILS.

BUT NOW THE RACE IS

VIRTUALLY A DEAD HEAT.

AND TODAY'S NEW ABC NEWS

"WASHINGTON POST"'S

TRACKING POLL SHOWS TRUMP

UP BY ONE POINT, 46 TO

45%, STILL WITHIN THE

MARGIN OF ERROR, BUT

SHOWING THAT THE MOVEMENT

IN RECENT DAYS HAS BEEN

TOWARDS THE REPUBLICAN.

EVEN THOUGH THE POLLS ARE

CLOSE, CLINTON STILL HAS

AN APPARENT ADVANTAGE IN

THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, SO

BOTH CANDIDATES ARE

HITTING KEY SWING STATES,

WHERE THE ELECTION WILL

LIKELY BE DECIDED.

CLINTON SOUNDING DEFIANT

ABOUT THE E-MAIL

CONTROVERSY.

I'M SURE A LOT OF YOU

MAY BE ASKING WHAT THIS

NEW E-MAIL STORY IS ABOUT,

AND WHY IN THE WORLD THE

F.B.I. WOULD DECIDE TO

JUMP INTO AN ELECTION WITH

NO EVIDENCE OF ANY

WRONG-DOING, WITH JUST

DAYS TO GO?

THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

Reporter: CAMPAIGNING

IN MICHIGAN, DONALD TRUMP

KEPT HIS FOCUS ON

CLINTON'S LATEST

CONTROVERSY.

THE CLINTON CRIME SPREE

ENDS ON NOVEMBER 8.

IT IS GOING TO END ON

NOVEMBER 8.

Reporter: AND CLINTON

COULD FACE MORE PROBLEMS

IN THE DAYS AHEAD.

WikiLEAKS IS REPORTEDLY

SAID TO RELEASE MORE

HACKED E-MAILS RELATED TO

THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

WikiLEAKS HAS ALREADY

CAUSED ANOTHER PROBLEM FOR

DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVES.

CNN DROPPED DONNA BRAZIL

AFTER WikiLEAKS REVEALED

SHE HAD GIVEN A QUESTION

FROM ONE OF THE DEBATES IN

THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY TO

THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT AFFECT

THIS WILL HAVE BEFORE THE

ELECTION DAY.

THE LAST WEEK BEFORE THE

ELECTION COULD BE AS

UNPREDICTABLE AS THE

ENTIRE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN

SO FAR THIS YEAR.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, IT WAS

PASSED WITHOUT ONE SINGLE

REPUBLICAN VOTE.

IT WAS RUSHED THROUGH.

IT WAS PUT TOGETHER BY AN

ACADEMIC NAMED JONATHAN

GRUBER, WHO LAUGHED AT THE

FACT THAT HE WAS LYING TO

PEOPLE AND DECEIVING THEM.

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE.

IT TOOK OVER WHAT AMOUNTED

TO ONE-EIGHTH OF THE

ENTIRE ECONOMY, THE HEALTH

CARE.

AND SO WHAT WAS DOLLARS

OBAMACARE HAS BEEN ONE OF

THE KEY ISSUES IN THIS

YEAR'S ELECTION BECAUSE

RATES ARE GOING THROUGH

THE SKY.

IN ARIZONA, THEY'VE

EXCEEDED 100% INCREASE.

SOME IN THE 20s AND

30s, AND 40s, AND ON

UP.

OPEN ENROLLMENT STARTS

TODAY, AND JOHN JESSUP HAS

THAT STORY FOR US.

John: AND, PAT, IT IS

STICKER SHOCK FOR MANY OF

THE PEOPLE ENROLLED IN

OBAMACARE PLANS, WITH

SHARP PRICE INCREASES

RANGING FROM 25% TO OVER

100% FOR SOME OF THOSE

PLANS.

AND MANY CONSUMERS WILL

HAVE LESS COVERAGE OPTION

FROM WHICH TO CHOOSE.

SOME INSURANCE COMPANIES

HAVE LOST SO MUCH MONEY

THEY HAVE HAD TO SCALED

BACK OR DROP OUT OF THE

SYSTEM.

> IRAQI FORCES HAVE

ENTERED THE CITY OF

MOSUL'S EASTERN OUTSKIRTS

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE

BATTLE TO DRIVE OUT ISIS.

THEY HAVE BEEN USING MOSUL

SAYS THE CAPITAL OF ITS

SO-CALLED CALIPHATE.

ONE IRAQI GENERAL SAYS

THEY ARE ADVANCING AS THE

FIGHTING CONTINUES.

AND ISIS RESPONDED WITH

OCCASIONAL

ROCKET-PROPELLED GRENADES.

IRAQI FORCES AND SHI'ITES

HAVE BEEN ADVANCING,

TRYING TO DRIVE OUT THE

ISLAMIC STATE FROM MOSUL.

Pat: FINALLY THE

IRAQI FORCES ARE GETTING

LIATHEIR ACT TOGETHER.

BUT THE TROUBLE NOW IS

IRAQ IS IN THE HANDS OF

THE SUNNIS -- THE SHI'AS

RUN IT.

THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY

GOOD NEWS FOR US.

BECAUSE AS MUCH AS WE

WOULD LIKE TO SEE MOSUL

DELIVERED FROM ISIS OR

ISIL, IT WILL NOT

NECESSARY BODE WELL FOR

THE FUTURE, UNLESS WE DO

SOMETHING IN RELATION TO

IRAQ, AND IT DOESN'T LIKER LOOK

LIKE WE'RE CAPABLE OF

DOING THAT TODAY.

JOHN?

John: RESEARCHERS

HAVE UNCOVERED WHAT IS

BELIEVED TO BE JESUS' TOMB

INSIDE OF CHURCH OF THE

HOLY SEPULCHRE.

CHRIS MITCHELL TAKES US TO

THE HEART OF THE CITY

WHERE A MAJOR RENOVATION

IS UNDER WAY.

Chris: THIS NATIONAL

GEOGRAPHIC VIDEO SHOWS

WORKMEN UNCOVERING THE

MARBLE TOMB.

AS THE VIDEO SAYS, THE

MODEST TOMB HAS NEVER

BEFORE BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED,

AND NO DRAWINGS EXIST.

IT REPORTED

CONSERVATIONALISTS WERE

SURPRISED TO FIND

SOMETHING THEIR

INSTRUMENTS DIDN'T DETECT,

A LAYER OF DEBRIS UNDER

THE MARBLE COVER.

AND UNDERNEATH THE DEBRIS,

THEY FOUND ANOTHER MARBLE

SLAB WITH A CROSS CARVED

INTO ITS SURFACE.

THE EMPEROR CONSTANTIN

ORDERED THE TOMB BUILT.

THE ROMAN EMPEROR HADRON

IN THE SECOND CENTURY

BUILT A TEMPLE HERE.

THEY SAY HE DID IT TO

COVER THE TOMB WHERE JESUS

WAS BURIED.

Chris: THE

EXAMINATION OF THE TOMB IS

PART OF A RESTORATION

PROJECT.

WORKERS ARE PREPARING THE

STRUCTURE KNOWN AS THE EDA

CIEWL, WHICEDACULE, WHICH MEANS

LITTLE HOUSE.

THE LAST WORK DONE ON THE

EDACULE TOOK PLACE OVER

200 YEARS AGO.

THIS PROFESSOR LEADS THE

RESTORATION, AND TOLD CBN

NEWS EARLIER THIS YEAR

ABOUT THE PROJECT.

WE REMOVED THE MARBLE

SLAB, THE STONE SLANS SLABS, AND

WE WILL INJECT CONCRETE.

THAT MEANS WE DEVELOP A

UNIFIED STRUCTURE, THAT

ALL OF THE LAYERS WILL

BEHAVE STRUCTURALLY AS

ONE.

AND AFTER REPAIRING IT

WITH NEW COMPOSITE AND

MORTARS, WE WILL RE-ADJUST

THE SOLE SLABS WITH TIE

TITANIUM.

Chris: THIS MAN IS A

CIVIL ENGINEER.

I'M VERY EXCITED.

BECAUSE I'M WORKING IN

GREECE IN MOMENTS LIKE

THIS, BUT THIS IS

SPECIALIZED WORK, VERY

SPECIALIZED WORK.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT I CAN

GO TO SOMETHING BETTER

THAN THIS.

EACH ONE OF US IN FRONT

OF THE HOLY TOMB SEES THE

VALUES OF THE HOLY TOMB.

IT GIVES THE MESSAGE OF

HIS RESURRECTION.

Chris: NATIONAL

GEOGRAPHIC PLANS TO SHOW

MORE OF ITS FOOTAGE THIS

MONTH ON ITS EXPLORE

CHANNEL.

THE RESTORATION SHOULD BE

COMPLETED SOME TIME NEXT

YEAR.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE, JERUSALEM.

John: THANKS, CHRIS.

> PAT, WHAT A REMARKABLE

DISCOVERY.

Pat: IT IS REALLY

REMARKABLE, BUT I STILL GO

FOR THE GARDEN TOMB.

I'VE BEEN IN IT AND I'VE

SEEN IT, AND IT LOOKS SO

MUCH MORE TRADITIONAL THAN

WHAT THIS OTHER THING IS.

IT'S A LOT OF FANCY WORK

IN THAT BEAUTIFUL

BASILICA -- YOU'VE BAB IN BEEN IN

THE GARDEN TOMB?

Terry: I'VE BEEN IN

THE GARDEN TOMB AND IT IS

VERY BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: THEY BUILD

CHURCHES OVER EVERYTHING

THEY GET THEIR HANDS ON.

ANYHOW, I'M A GARDEN TOMB

FAN.

I BELIEVE THAT'S CLOSER TO

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

> WELL, YOU KNOW, I

WROTE A BOOK, AND IT WAS

CALLED "THE END OF THE

AGE," AND IT WAS A BOOK OF

FICTION, BUT IT WAS BASED

ON THE BIBLE.

IT SOLD A RIGHT MANY

COPIES, AND IT WAS VERY

INTRIGUING, BUT IT HAD TO

DO WITH THE END OF THE

AGE, FULFILLING WHAT JESUS

HAD TO SAY.

AND IT REVOLVED AROUND AN

ASTEROID HITTING EARTH.

AND WHAT I CONCEIVED IN MY

BOOK, THE END OF THE AGE,

WAS ONE KILOMETRE, WHICH

IS SIX-TENTHS OF A MILE.

AND THIS THING WEIGHED

THREE BILLION POUNDS AND

IT JUST BLEW EVERYTHING TO

PIECES.

APPARENTLY, THOSE THINGS

ARE IN THE AIR ALL OF THE

TIME.

AND AN ASTEROID FLEW PAST

EARTH THIS PAST WEEKEND.

JOHN HAS THAT STORY.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT, AND IT WAS SPOTTED

AHEAD OF TIME BY A NASA

WARNING SYSTEM CALLED

"SCOUT."

THE SYSTEM CONSTANTLY

CHECKS FOR REPORTS OF

OCTOBER IN SPACE THAT

COULD THREATEN THE EARTH.

IT TRACKS OBJECTS IN

SPACE.

SCOUT MAINLY IDENTIFIES

SMALLER OBJECTS THAT ARE

CLOSE TO EARTH.

ANOTHER ONE LOOKS FOR

BIGGER OCTOBER OBJECTS, AND IT IS

CALLED CENTURY.

THE HOPE IS TO BE ABLE TO

FIND 90% OF THEM IN THE

FUTURE.

Pat: WELL, WE NEED

SOME MONEY.

ONE OF THE THINGS IN MY

BOOK IS THAT A PRESIDENT

COMMITTED SUICIDE BECAUSE

HE HAD VETOED THE AP

APPROPRIATION TO SHOOT

THESE THINGS DOWN.

THEY COME HURTLING TO

EARTH, AND THEY CATCH FIRE

AS THEY GET CLOSER AND

CLOSER.

IF A COMET COMES BY, FOR

EXAMPLE, WE'RE DEAD MEAT.

Terry: YOU'RE WHOLE

CONCEPT CAME FROM A

BIBLICAL DESCRIPTION OF

SOMETHING THAT

PROPHETICALLY WOULD

HAPPEN.

Pat: WHAT JESUS SAID,

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE THAT

FULFILLS IT THE WAY THIS

DOES.

AND I HAD SCRIPTURE AFTER

SCRIPTURE, AND IT ALL FIT

TOGETHER.

THE AMAZING THING IS I WAS

WRITING THAT BOOK, AND I

DIDN'T HAVE AN OUTLINE.

I JUST STARTED WRITING.

WHEN IT WAS FINISHED, I

SAID, WOW, LOOK AT THIS?

THE WHOLE THING TOOK PLACE

IN THREE DAYS.

THE THING HIT AND THE ALL

OF THE DAMAGE WAS JUST

THREE DAYS.

Terry: THE DAMAGE

WOULD BE SO DEVASTATING.

Pat: THREE DAYS.

AND THAT'S THE TIME THAT

JESUS WAS IN THE TOMB.

AND ALL OF THE DATES AND

EVERYTHING WORKED

TOGETHER.

AND THE SIZE OF THE THING,

THE SPEED, AND THE

VELOCITY AND THE

TEMPERATURE -- IT WAS ALL

THERE AND IT SUDDENLY FIT

TOGETHER.

I THINK, FRANKLY, WHEN YOU

SEE WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN AT THE END OF THE

AGE, THIS IS THE WAY IT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN.

BUT WE'LL SEE.

Terry: WE'RE FRAGILE,

AT BEST.

Pat: WE'RE TOTALLY

DEPENDENT ON GOD ALMIGHTY.

Terry: COMING UP, A

CBN EXCLUSIVE WATCHED

MIRACLES UNFOLD DEEP IN

THE HEART OF THE JUNGLE.

CHRIST DIED FOR OUR

SINS, AND THAT CHANGED OUR

LIFE.

Terry: GEORGE THOMAS

HEADS INTO THE PYGMY

COLONIES OF UGANDA.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: ONE WEEK.

ONE WEEK, FOLKS.

I WANT TO SAY, IF THERE

WAS EVER A TIME TO PRAY,

THIS IS THE TIME TO PRAY,

TO PRAY FOR AMERICA.

WE'RE DEPENDED ON THE

LORD.

THIS NATION IS A GREAT

NATION, BUT WE'VE SINNED

AGAINST GOD AS A NATION.

WE HAVE DONE HORRIBLE

THINGS AS A PEOPLE.

AND WE NEED TO ASK GOD'S

FORGIVENESS.

WE NEED TO REPENT, AND WE

NEED TO CRY OUT TO THE

LORD.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

IF MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE

CALLED BY MY NAME, WILL

HUMBLE THEMSELVES AND PRAY

AND SEEK MY FACE AND TURN

FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS,

THEN I'LL HEAR FROM HEAVEN

AND FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND

HEAL THEIR LAND.

IT IS TIME TO PRAY, IF

THERE EVER WAS A TIME.

IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS, CRY

OUT FOR GOD.

> FOR CENTURIES, THESE

PEOPLE LIVED IN CAVES AND

TREES WHILE THEY HUNTED IN

THE JUNGLE.

A REMOTE AFRICAN TRIBE

CALLED THE BATWA PYGMIES.

THE UGANDA GOVERNMENT

FORCED THEM OUT OF THE

FOREST, LEAVING THEM

HOMELESS AND DESTITUTE.

NOW ONE CHRISTIAN MINISTRY

IS HELPING THEM REBUILD

THEIR LIVES.

GEORGE THOMAS LOVES TO

TRAVEL THE WORLD, AND HE

GOT OVER THERE TO UGANDA

WITH THIS REMARKABLE

STORY.

George: YOU'RE ABOUT

TO SEE IMAGES NEVER

CAPTURED ON CAMERA.

UNTIL NOW.

FROM DEEP IN THE LUSH

GREEN JUNGLES OF AFRICA...

*

George: ...COMES THE

STORY OF ONE OF THIS

CONTINENT'S OLDEST LIVING

TRIBES.

WE USED TO LIVE LIKE

ANIMALS IN THE JUNGLE.

George: JOVANIS

NYIRAKAYANJE IS A BATWA

PYGMY.

FOR CENTURIES, HER PEOPLE

WERE RAINFOREST DWELLERS.

WE SMOKED, WE DRANK, WE

PERFORMED WITCHCRAFT.

George: DR. KELLERMAN

IS STUDYING THE BATWA

PEOPLE.

THEY'RE VERY DEMI DETINI

DETINITIVE, THEY ARE ONLY

FOUR FEET IN HEIGHT.

George: THEY LIFE

REVOLVES AROUND THE FOREST

OF SOUTHWESTERN UGANDA.

THIERK THEY ARE PRE-STONE AGE,

SO THAT'S WHY VERY FEW

RECORDS ARE FOUND OF THE

BATWA.

George: THE BATWAS

WERE KNOWN AS THE KEEPERS

OF THE FOREST, BUT THAT

ALL CHANGED IN 1992 WHEN

THE GOVERNMENT IN KAMPALA

DECIDED TO TURN THEIR

HABITAT INTO A NATIONAL

PARK AND A WORLD HERITAGE

SITE FOR ENDANGERED

MOUNTAIN GORILLAS.

THERE ARE ABOUT 750

MOUNTAIN GORILLAS IN THE

WORLD, AND ABOUT 350 LIVE

IN THIS FOREST.

IT WAS MADE A WORLD

HERITAGE SITE, AND THE

BATWA WERE EVICTED FROM

THE FOREST.

George: AFTER

CENTURIES OF LIVING IN

CAVES AND TREES, THE BATWA

BECAME CONSERVATION

REFUGEES.

WITH NO TITLE TO LAND, NO

FOOD, NO CLOTHING, NO

SHELTER, THOUSANDS OF THEM

WALKED OUT OF THE JUNGLE

TO A WORLD THAT TURNED

AGAINST THEM.

THE PEOPLE DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO BECAUSE THEY

THOUGHT THE BATWA, THE

PYGMIES, WERE LIKE

ANIMALS.

THIS MAN AND HIS WIFE,

BARBARA, DECIDED TO HELP

SOME OF THE BATWA.

THEY MOVED FROM THEIR HOME

IN UGANDA'S CAPITAL TO A

SMALL VILLAGE TO BEGIN A

MINISTRY AMONG THE

PYGMIES.

I BEGAN BY PREACHING

THE MESSAGE OF HOPE.

George: HUNDREDS OF

BATWA PYGMIES HEARD ABOUT

JESUS FOR THE VERY FIRST

TIME.

JOVANIS NYIRAKAYANJE WAS

ONE OF THE FIRST CONVERTS.

IT WAS THE FIRST TIME

ANYONE HAD EVER TOLD US

ABOUT JESUS.

WE WERE OF THE DEVIL, BUT

THEN WE HEARD CHRIST DIED

FOR OUR SINS, AND THAT

CHANGED OUR LIVES.

George: ON THIS

DAY...

I BAPTIZE YOU IN THE

NAME OF THE FATHER, THE

SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

George: 37 RESPONDED

TO THE GOSPEL MESSAGE AND

GOT BAPTIZED IN A RIVER.

[SINGING]

George: GERALD SAYS

MIRACLES ARE ALSO

HAPPENING AMONG THE BATWA.

PEOPLE DIAGNOSED WITH

HIV/AIDS ARE GETTING

HEALED.

A PIG N PYGMY GIRL ON THE VIRGE

OF DEATH, GIVEN NEW LIFE.

SHE WAS DEAD, ALMOST.

THEY STARTED PRAYING FOR

HER.

THEY PRAYED AND PRAYED AND

PRAYED FOR HOURS.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

THE CHILD GOT HEALED.

George: IT ALL LED TO

THIS...THE FIRST EVER

BATWA PIG N PYGMY CHURCH IN THE

REGION.

THE PYGMIES COME TO

ATTEND THE CHURCH.

George: AND THEY ALSO

RUN A SCHOOL FOR PYGMY

CHILDREN.

AND PARENTS, ONCE ANIMAL

HUNTERS, ARE LEARNING TO

BE FARMERS.

BUT THE NEEDS HERE ARE

ENORMOUS.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE

POVERTY, WHICH EXISTS

EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD,

YET THEY ARE THE POOREST

OF THE POOR.

George: AFTER MAKING

SEVERAL TRIPS OUT HERE,

GIO KAHASTA DECIDED TO GET

INVOLVED.

HE GOT A HANDFUL OF

CHURCHES IN SWEDEN TO

PARTNER.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS

MINISTRY IS RUN BY THE

BATWA PYGMIES THEMSELVES.

THEY HAVE FORMED A BOARD

AND THEY ARE CARING FOR

THEIR OWN PEOPLE.

WE JUST WANT TO EMPOWER

THEM AND GIVE THEM SOME

RESOURCES.

George: NO ONE KNOWS

FOR SURE, BUT SOMEONE

ESTIMATES THERE ARE STILL

TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

BATWAS WHO NEED TO HEAR

ABOUT THE SALVATION OF

CHRIST.

IN THE MEANTIME, GERALD

WELCOMES CHRISTIANS FROM

AROUND THE WORLD TO JOIN

HIM IN THE ADVENTURE OF

REACHING ONE OF THE MOST

IM POIMPOVERISHED PEOPLE GROUPS

IN THE WORLD.

WE NEED PEOPLE TO HELP.

George: GEORGE

THOMSON, CBN NEWS, UGANDA.

Pat: YOU TALK ABOUT

PROPHECY.

THE LORD SAID THIS GOSPEL

OF THE KINGDOM WILL BE

PREACHED IN ALL OF THE

WORLD FOR A WITNESS, AND

THEN THE END IS GOING TO

COME.

BOY, IF YOU GET TO THOSE

PYGMIES UP IN THOSE REMOTE

JUNGLES, THAT'S ABOUT AS

FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN GET.

Terry: HOW WONDERFUL

TO SEE PEOPLE WORSHIP.

Pat: IT IS ABSOLUTELY

BEAUTIFUL.

> WHAT IS NEXT?

Terry: UP NEXT, HER

GRANDPARENTS FLED

PERSECUTION IN RUSSIA, AND

THEN SHE HAD TO FLEE AN

ABUSIVE HUSBAND.

I WALKED OUT THE DOOR.

I LEFT TO PROTECT MYSELF

AND MY CHILDREN.

Terry: HEAR THE REST

OF HER STORY WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WITH ONE WEEK TO

GO BEFORE THE ELECTION,

YOU ARE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND EXCITEMENT

THROUGHOUT.

PEEKINPEEKSPEAKERING OF THROUGHOUT,

THROUGHOUT HER LIFE, SHE

HAS RESPONDED THROUGH

DEATH AND PAIN, AND HER

JEWISH FAMILY TAUGHT HER

TO WORK THROUGH IT ALL

WITH HER HEAD HELD HIGH.

BUT WHILE TRAY WAS STRONG

ON THE OUTSIDE, SHE WAS

SECRETLY HOLDING A GRUDGE.

I WAS BROUGHT UP TO

ADORE GOD.

I WAS TAUGHT TO PRAY EVERY

NIGHT, TO THANK HIM FOR

THE BLESSINGS THAT WE HAD.

I WOULD GO TO SYNAGOGUE

WITH MY FATHER AND HOLD

HIS HAND.

OUR HOME WAS FILLED WITH

JOY.

TRAY JOHNSON WAS JUST 16

WHEN HER FATHER SUFFERED A

MASSIVE, FATAL HEART

ATTACK.

THERE WAS A TREMENDOUS

SHIFT FROM THE JOY.

IT WENT TO TREMENDOUS

SORROW.

I REMEMBER ON THE DAY OF

THE FUNERAL, LOOKING OUT

AND WONDERING HOW PEOPLE

WERE GOING ON WITH THEIR

LIVES SO JOYFULLY, WHEN WE

WERE ON THE WAY TO BURY MY

DADDY.

MY MOTHER, WHO HAD BEEN SO

STRONG ALL THOSE YEARS,

CARING FOR HIM AND FOR US,

WAS SO FILLED WITH SORROW

THAT SHE TURNED TO ME, AND

SHE SAID, I NEED YOU TO

TAKE CARE OF ME.

Reporter: TO HONOR

HER MOTHER'S REQUEST,

TRAY, A HIGH-ACHIEVING

STUDENT, GRADUATED FROM

HIGH SCHOOL AND WENT

STRAIGHT TO WORK TO

SUPPORT HER MOTHER.

THAT WAS SOMETHING I

HAD A HARD TIME WITH

BECAUSE I GAVE UP GOING TO

COLLEGE IN ORDER TO DO

THAT.

Reporter: SHE

EVENTUALLY MARRIED AND HAD

THREE CHILDREN.

WHEN HER HUSBAND BECAME

ABUSIVE, SHE HAD ONLY ONE

OPTION.

WHEN I WALKED OUT THE

DOOR, I HAD MY THREE KIDS,

THEIR CLOTHING, AND MY

CLOTHES.

I LEFT TO PROTECT MYSELF

AND MY CHILDREN.

Reporter: STARTING

OVER WAS SOMETHING SHE HAD

LEARNED FROM HER

GRANDPARENTS, JEWISH

IMMIGRANTS WHO FLED RUSSIA

TO ESCAPE PERSECUTION.

AND WHEN THEY GOT HERE,

THEY STARTED FROM SCRATCH.

AND YET ALL OF THEIR

CHILDREN WERE SUCCESSFUL,

AND IT WAS SOMETHING WE

WERE TAUGHT.

YOU ARE GOING TO BE

SUCCESSFUL.

Reporter: TRAY

CONTINUED THE FAMILY

LEGACY AND POURED HERSELF

INTO HER WORK.

IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR ME

TO DO BETTER EVERY YEAR.

I THINK PART OF THAT IS

BECAUSE I DID NOT GO TO

COLLEGE.

AND, THEREFORE, I WAS

GOING TO BE A SUCCESS.

AND BUSINESS WAS THE WAY

THAT I WAS GOING TO DO

THAT.

Reporter: AROUND THE

SAME TIME, TRAY WAS

INVITED TO VISIT A

CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

I ALWAYS CONSIDERED

JESUS TO BE A RABBI.

AND WHEN I WOULD SEE A

MOVIE THAT WAS ABOUT

JESUS, I WOULD CRY.

AND WHEN I WAS IN MY EARLY

40s, I FINALLY SAW HIM

NOT SUFFERING, BUT LOVING.

Reporter: SHE MARRIED

AGAIN, BUT TRAGEDY STRUCK

ONCE MORE WHEN HER SECOND

HUSBAND DIED SUDDENLY.

I WAS DEVASTATED.

THAT TOOK ME A LONG TIME

TO GET OVER.

Reporter: IN 2009, AT

AGE 70, TRAY RETIRED AND

BUILT HER DREAM HOME IN

TEXAS.

HER DAUGHTER HAD RECENTLY

COME TO KNOW JESUS, AND

INVITED HER TO A CHURCH

CONFERENCE.

WE WERE ASKED TO

FORGIVE ANYONE AGAINST

WHOM WE HAD ANY FEELINGS

OF RESENTMENT OR ANGER.

AND I REALIZED THAT ALL

THOSE YEARS I HAD BEEN

CARRYING THIS

DISAPPOINTMENT THAT MY

MOTHER DID NOT WANT ME TO

GO TO COLLEGE.

AND SO I ACTUALLY VERBALLY

FORGAVE MY MOM, AND THAT

WAS THE TURNING POINT FOR

ME BECAUSE IT CLEARED MY

MIND, MY HEART, AND MY

SOUL, AND MY SPIRIT.

Reporter: LATER, ONE

OF THE CONFERENCE LEADERS

OFFERED COMMUNION.

HE SAID, WELL, TRAY,

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE

COMMUNION IF YOU DON'T

WANT TO.

AND I SAID, NO, I DO WANT

TO.

I SAID IT'S VERY IMPORTANT

TO ME.

I SAW JESUS WITH HIS ARMS

OUTSPREAD, AND I KNEW HE

WAS WELCOMING ME.

AND THIS WAS MY

OPPORTUNITY TO SAY, YES, I

ACCEPT YOU AS MY SAVIOR.

Reporter: TRAY GAVE

HER LIFE TO CHRIST,

STARTED ATTENDING CHURCH,

AND READ THE NEW TESTAMENT

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

WHEN I FINALLY TOOK

THAT STEP AND SAID YES, MY

LIFE CHANGED TOTALLY.

THE LOVE THAT I HAD HAD

FOR PEOPLE WAS SO MUCH

GREATER BECAUSE OF THE

LOVE THAT HE HAS FOR ME.

SO KIND, SO GRACIOUS.

Reporter: TODAY TRAY

IS MARRIED, AND SHE AND

HER HUSBAND JACK, WRITING

UNDER A PEN NAME, ARE

AUTHORS OF "WINDS OF

ETERNITY, THE ANGEL

CHRONICLES."

IT IS A VERY REVERENT

DESCRIPTION, IN THE FIRST

FIVE CHAPTERS OF GENESIS,

AS SEEING THROUGH THE EYES

OF THE ANGELS, WHO WATCHED

GOD CREATE OUR EARTH.

Reporter: TRAY STILL

HONORS THE RICH TRADITIONS

OF THE JUDAISM OF HER

YOUTH, BUT SHE FOLLOWS THE

MESSIAH.

ENJOYING PASSOVER, ROSH

HASHANAH, YOM KIPPUR --

ALL OF THOSE THINGS COME

TOGETHER TO MAKE ME A

BETTER JEW WHILE I AM ALSO

A CHRISTIAN.

I AM NOW MORE OF A JEW

THAN I WAS WHEN I WAS ONLY

JEWISH.

WHAT THE LORD HAS GIVEN TO

ME IS A PEACE THAT

LITERALLY PASSES

UNDERSTANDING.

THAT IS WHAT I HAVE

RECEIVED FROM JESUS.

IT'S PHENOMENAL.

IT'S JOY.

Pat: THE PEACE THAT

PASSES UNDERSTANDING.

IT IS AMAZING.

I FIND THE TEACHING ON HOW

TO HAVE MIRACLES IN THE

GOSPEL OF MARK, AND AS THE

CONCLUSION OF JESUS'

DISCOURSE ON MIRACLES, HE

SAYS THAT WHEN YOU STAND

PRAYING, IF YOU HAVE OUGHT

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE THAT

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER MIGHT

FORGIVE YOU.

IN ORDER TO HAVE MIRACLES,

WE HAVE TO BE IN A

CONDITION OF BEING BORN

AGAIN.

WE HAVE TO BE IN A

POSITION OF BEING

FORGIVEN.

YOU KNOW IN THE LORD'S

PRAYER, "FORGIVE US OUR

TRESPASSES AS WE FORGIVE

THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST

US."

AND WE PRAY THAT AS IF IT

WERE JUST WORDS.

NO, IT MEANS A LOT.

THAT SOMEHOW OUR ACCESS

INTO GOD'S SPIRIT IS

CONDITIONED ON WENT WE

WILL FORGIVE THOSE WHO

HAVE INJURED US.

IN TRAY'S CASE, IT WAS HER

MOTHER, WHO KEPT HER FROM

GOING TO COLLEGE, AND SHE

RESENTED IT.

YOU MAYBE HAVE HAD DEEP

THINGS IN YOUR HEART THAT

YOU'RE NOT EVEN AWARE OF.

SOME PARENT DID SOMETHING,

SOME TEACHER DID

SOMETHING, SOME EMPLOYER

DID SOMETHING, SOME

SIBLING, BROTHER, SISTER,

DID SOMETHING, AND THEY

HAVE BLOCKED YOU OR

OFFENDED YOU OR SOMETHING

HAS HAPPENED, AND DEEP

INSIDE IS THIS RESENTMENT.

AND WHAT THE LORD SAYS IS,

YOU'VE GOT TO GET IT OUT

THERE.

AND TRAY DID AND FORGAVE,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT

BEGAN TO BLOSSOM, THIS

WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

THE SAME THING WITH YOU.

SO I WANT TO PRAY WITH YOU

RIGHT NOW.

I WANT YOU TO THINK OF WHO

MAY HAVE HURT YOU, AND I

WANT TOGETHER, TO FORGIVE

THAT.

LET'S ASK GOD TO COME IN

AND SET YOU FREE OF THAT.

BECAUSE THAT'S A BOND DAP.

YOBONDAGE.YOU DON'T WANT TO BE IN

BONDAGE.

SO PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS.

LORD JESUS -- THAT'S

RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

LORD JESUS, I KNOW YOU

DIED FOR ME.

AND I KNOW YOU ROSE

AGAINST THAT I MIGHT LIVE.

AND, LORD, I HAVE RECEIVED

YOU AS SAVIOR.

BUT WHILE I'VE DONE THAT,

I'VE HAD IN MY HEART

BITTERNESS TOWARDS SOMEONE

AND THOSE WHO HAVE HURT

ME.

SO RIGHT NOW I

SPECIFICALLY, BEFORE YOU,

FORGIVE THAT WHICH HAS

BEEN DONE TO ME.

I FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE

HURT ME.

RIGHT NOW BEFORE YOU I

NAME THEM, AND BY NAME I

FORGIVE THEM, EVEN AS YOU

HAVE FORGIVEN ME.

AND SO, LORD, COME INTO MY

HEART AND FILL ME NOW TO

OVERFLOWING WITH YOUR

SPIRIT.

AND I RECEIVE THE

MIRACULOUS POWER OF GOD

FROM THIS MOMENT ON.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THANK YOU.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

WELL, IF YOU PRAYED WITH

ME, YOU MIGHT WANT

SOMEBODY TO PRAY FURTHER

WITH YOU.

YOU MIGHT JUST WANT TO

TELL US YOU DID IT.

IT WILL SET YOU FREE.

JUST SAY, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS, I AM NOW FREE.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND

CALL.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

AND I'VE GOT A BOOK HERE

CALLED "A NEW DAY," THAT

I'LL GIVE YOU.

IT WILL HELP YOU ABOUT

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR

LIFE.

BUT WHATEVER IT IS, YOU

SAY I AM FREE, DECLARE

YOUR VICTORY, AND WE WILL

REJOICE WITH YOU.

> WELL, WE HAVE THE

SOUND OF TRIUMPH.

TERRY?

Terry: THAT'S RIGHT.

IT IS COMING UP.

IT HAS BEEN CALLED "THE

VOICE OF GOD."

ONE MUSICIAN TAKES US INTO

THE MYSTERY OF THE SHOFAR,

WHEN WE RETURN.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

MISSISSIPPI GOVERNOR PHIL

BRYANT IS ASKING A FEDERAL

APPEALS COURT TO UPHOLD A

STATE LAW THAT PROTECTS

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

IT WILL LET MERCHANTS TO

SITE THEIR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS INSTEAD OF

PROVIDING SERVICES TO

SAME-SEX COUPLES THAT

VIOLATES THEIR FAITH.

THEY SAY THE LAW IS

NECESSARY TO PROTECT THOSE

WHO BELIEVE MARRIAGE IS

ONLY BEFORE A MAN AND A

WOMAN.

BRYANT'S ATTORNEYS SAY,

QUOTE,"THE LAW GIVES THE

OPPONENTS OF SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE THE SAME

PROTECTIONS THAT FEDERAL

LAW CONFERS ON THE

OPPONENTS OF WARFARE,

ABORTION, CAPITAL

PUNISHMENT, AND

PHYSICIAN-ASSISTED

SUICIDE."

RIO DE JANEIRO, A CITY

KNOWN FOR ITS BEACH

CULTURE WITH LOTS OF SKIN

AND PARADES HAS

OVERWHELMING CHOSEN AN

EVANGELICAL BISHOP TO BE

ITS NEW MAYOR IN A RUNOFF

ELECTION.

THE SENATOR IS THE NEPHEW

OF THE FOUNDER OF THE

UNIVERSAL CHURCH OF THE

KINGDOM OF GOD.

THAT IS THE MAIN

PENTECOSTAL DOMINATION IN

BRAZIL.

THE COUNTRY IS THE LARGEST

ROMAN CATHOLIC NATION, BUT

THE GROWING EVANGELICAL

COMMUNITY NOW ACCOUNTS FOR

ABOUT ONE-FIFTH OF THE

POPULATION OF 200 MILLION.

HIS VICTORY IS CONSIDERED

A RESURGENCE OF

CONSERVATISM IN BRAZIL.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: HEY, THIS NEW

D.V.D. HAS FIVE WAYS YOU

CAN WARD OFF AMERICA'S

NUMBER ONE KILLER, CALLED

HEART DISEASE.

THIS D.V.D. IS CALLED

"PROTECT YOUR HEART."

AND WE CAN SUPPLY FOR YOU

A COPY IF YOU JUST GO TO

cbn.com OR YOU CAN JUST

GIVE US A TELEPHONE CALL.

IF YOU CAN'T ACCESS A

COMPUTER, OUR NUMBER IS

1-800-700-7000.

IT'S CALLED "PROTECT YOUR

HEART."

IT'S A FABULOUS, VERY

WELL-DONE STUDY ABOUT

THOSE THINGS THAT WILL BE

ESSENTIAL IN KEEPING YOU

ALIVE.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, WHEN YOU

THINK OF THE SOUNDS OF

HEAVEN, YOU MIGHT THINK OF

A HARP OR A LYRE, BUT

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE AND

THROUGHOUT HISTORY, GOD'S

PEOPLE HAVE PLAYED A VERY

DIFFERENT INSTRUMENT.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

SOUND THAT WILL SIGNAL THE

SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.

IT IS THE SOUND FROM A

SHOFAR.

A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT THAT

DATES BACK TO BIBLICAL

TIMES.

DON HEIST SAYS WHAT COMES

OUT OF HIS HEBREW HORN IS

THE VOICE OF GOD.

DON REVEALS HIS BEST-KEPT

SECRETS ABOUT HOW TO PLAY

THE SHOFAR IN HIS LATEST

D.V.D. AND SHARES STORIES

OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HE

PLAYS BEFORE LIVE

AUDIENCES.

Terry: JOH DON HEIST IS

WITH US NOW.

WE WELCOME YOU TO THE

SHOW.

THANK YOU.

Terry: HOW DID YOU

START DOING THIS?

I STUMBLED ON IT.

WE WERE AT A REVIVAL IN

1995, AND I SAW THE SHOFAR

BEING PLAYED, AND THIS

INTRIGUED ME.

AS A CHILD, I PLAYED A

TRUMPET.

AFTER THAT, I GOT MY HANDS

ON A HORN AND JUST STARTED

PLAYING.

AND, AS THEY SAY, THE REST

IS HISTORY.

MY WIFE AND I PRAYED FOR

YEARS TO FIND OUT HOW GOD

WOULD USE US AND HOW HE

WOULD TAKE US TO THE NEXT

LEVEL, SO TO SPEAK, USING

HIS HORN, THE VOICE.

Terry: YOU THINK THAT

YOU'RE JUST GOING TO PICK

UP ONE OF THOSE THINGS AND

BLOW INTO IT, BUT YOU SAY

YOU PLAY IT; YOU DON'T

BLOW IT.

YEAH, I TRY TO PLAY IT

MORE LIKE AN INSTRUMENT

RATHER THAN -- MAY I USE

THE ROUGH PHASE, A

NOISE-MAKER.

IT IS THE SOUND OF

RESURRECTION AND THE SOUND

OF DELIVERANCE, BUT WHEN

GOD'S VOICE COMES OUT, IT

REALLY DOESN'T HAVE MUCH

TO DO WITH THE PERSON

PLAYING THE HORN, EXCEPT

THEY HAVE TO HAVE CLEAN

HANDS AND A PURE HEART.

BUT THE POINT IS THAT IT

IS GOD'S VOICE THAT COMES

OUT OF THE END OF THE

SHOFAR.

AND MIRACULOUS THINGS

HAPPEN WHEN GOD'S VOICE

TOUCHES YOU.

Terry: IT'S TRUE.

YOU HAVE PLAYED HERE FOR

ROSH HASHANAH FOR YEARS

NOW.

EIGHT YEARS.

Terry: WHEN THAT

SHOFAR BLOWS, SOMETHING

RISES UP IN YOU AND

EVERYONE RISES.

IT IS A CALL.

IT IS.

AND WHAT THAT IS IS A

SPIRITUAL CHANGE AND THE

ATMOSPHERE.

GOD'S VOICE GOES

THROUGHOUT AND CHANGES THE

ATMOSPHERE.

SO HEARTS ARE MELTED AND

HEALED, SOFTENED.

PHYSICAL HEALINGS HAVE

TAKEN PLACE.

MENTAL HEALINGS AND

FINANCIAL --

Terry: AND WORSHIP

BREAKS OUT, TOO.

DEFINITELY.

THE SOUND OF CHRIST COMING

OUT THE END OF THE SHOFAR

IS VERY MUCH LIKE A

CELEBRATION ALL OF THE

TIME.

HOW GOD DECIDES TO USE HIS

VOICE IS, OF COURSE, NOT A

SURPRISE BUT IT IS

DIFFERENT EVERY TIME

BECAUSE IT IS REALLY ABOUT

PSYCHINSEEKING GOD'S WILL.

Terry: YOU SAID YOU

PLAYED THE TRUMPET -- I

HAVE A SHOFAR, AND I'M A

NOISE-MAKER, BUT AS A

TRUMPET PLAYER, YOU KNOW

HOW TO POSITION YOUR LIPS

AND HOW TO BREATHE.

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE ANY

NOTES THAT YOU CAN PLAY,

SO HOW DOES ONE PLAY THE

SHOFAR?

WELL, THE SHOFAR, LIKE

ANY BRASS INSTRUMENT, HAS

WHAT THEY CALL PARCELS.

AND PARCELS ARE DIFFERENT

LEVEL PITCHES.

THE SHOFAR WILL ALWAYS

PLAY THE ROOT NOTE.

IT WILL PLAY THE PERFECT

FIFTH AND AN OCTIVE, AND

ON A GOOD DAY, I HAVE HIT

AN OCTIVE ABOVE THAT.

BUT IT IS NOT REALLY ABOUT

WHAT I CAN DO, AS MUCH AS

WHAT GOD DOES THROUGH THE

HORN, AND WHAT IS EMITTED

OUT OF THAT HORN IN TERMS

OF HEALING AND

DELIVERANCE.

Terry: YOU PLAYED AT

A CONFERENCE IN FLORIDA IS

LITTLE BIT AGO, AND A

PROPHETIC WORD WAS GIVEN

THERE.

TELL US ABOUT THAT.

I WAS ON THE PLATFORM,

PLAYING WITH THE WORSHIP

TEAM.

AND THE PROPHETIC SPEAKER

WAS WALKING IN FRONT.

AND AS HE WALKED BY, HIS

EYES AND MINE MET.

I IMMEDIATELY SENSED A

FEAR OF I'M IN TROUBLE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

COMING.

AND HE SAID TO ME, I HAVE

A WORD FROM GOD FOR YOU.

AND I LISTENED.

AND HE, IN FRONT OF ALL OF

THESE PEOPLE, SAID,

WHENEVER YOU BLOW, THE

CANCER MUST GO.

AND RIGHT AFTER THAT, IN

FACT AT THAT VERY

CONFERENCE, GOD HAD HEALED

A MAN WITH GOLF-BALL-SIZED

LUMPS IN HIS CHEST.

EYES WERE OPENED THAT WERE

BLIND.

DEAF PEOPLE BEGAN HEARING.

BY THE END OF THE

CONFERENCE, PEOPLE HAD

CELL PHONES LINED UP ON

THE FRONT EDGE, CONTACTING

A LOVED ONE OR AN UNSAVED

PERSON THAT THEY WERE

PRAYING FOR.

AND BY CONTINUING THROUGH

THE CONFERENCE, I BELIEVE

GOD TOUCHED A LOT OF

PEOPLE.

AND SINCE THEN, GOD HAS

USED THE SOUND OF THE

SHOFAR, HIS VOICE, IN MANY

WAYS FOR HEALING AND

DELIVERANCE.

Terry: THE SHOFAR HAS

BEEN USED BY GOD'S PEOPLE

FOR A LONG TIME.

WHAT'S THE SIGNIFICANCE OF

IT?

IT GOES BACK TO GENESIS

22, WHERE ABRAHAM IS

TAKING ISAAC UP TO

SACRIFICE HIM.

AND, OF COURSE, THE

SCRIPTURES TELL US THAT

SUDDENLY THERE WAS A RAM

IN THE THICKET.

AND THAT'S THE ANIMAL THAT

ABRAHAM USED TO SACRIFICE

IN PLACE OF ISAAC.

THAT BEING SAID, WE KNOW

NOW IS A PICTURE OF

CHRIST.

BUT WHAT THEY'RE SAYING IN

THE SCRIPTURE THERE, WHAT

MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE IS

THAT THE ONE HORN ON THE

RAM WAS PLAYED AT MT.

SINAI FOR MOSES WHEN HE

HEARD THE GREAT VOICE

BEHIND HIM, LIKE A

TRUMPET, AND THAT WAS THE

VOICE OF GOD.

AND THAT SOUNDING OF THE

HORN WAS ONE OF THE HORNS

ON THAT RAM.

THE OTHER ONE, IT SAID, IS

IN WAI WAITING FOR THE SECOND

RETURN.

SO WHEN CHRIST COMES BACK,

WE'LL HEAR THAT OTHER ONE

PLAY.

Terry: NOW, I THOUGHT

ALL SHOFARS WERE RAMS'

HORNS.

BUT YOU PLAY A KUDU?

IDS A KUDU ANTELOPE,

AND THEY'RE A LITTLE

EASIER TO PLAY THAN THE

RAMS' HORNS.

THE KUDUS ARE MORE ROUND.

AND BY HAVING DIFFERENT

LENGTHS OF THE KUDU HORNS,

WE CAN RANK THEM IN

DIFFERENT PITCHES.

I CAN PICK THE HORN THAT

IS IN THE KEY OF WHATEVER

THE WORSHIP TEAM IS

PLAYING, AND I CONNECT

THAT TO DIFFERENT PLACES.

THAT'S WHY I SAY I PLAY IT

RATHER THAN JUST BLOW IT.

BUT IT IS STILL ALL GOD'S

VOICE COMING OUT.

Terry: SURE.

AND I MANY TIMES WONDER

WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE

ATMOSPHERE.

I'M JUST PLAYING THE HORN,

BUT WHAT'S GOD DOING?

I LOVE TO HEAR WHEN PEOPLE

E-MAIL ME AND SAY, THIS IS

WHAT GOD DID THAT DAY.

Terry: WE'RE GOING TO

HEAR YOU PLAY IN JUST A

MOMENT.

WILL ALL OF THE HORNS YOU

ARE USING ARE KUDU?

ALL OF THE HORNS A ARE

KUDU, AND THEY'RE PITCHED

DIFFERENTLY.

Terry: IF YOU WOULD

LIKE TO HEAR MORE OF HIS

WORK, GO TO cbn.com.

YOU'VE GOT A WONDERFUL

D.V.D. CALLED COMBO, AND

IT IS CALLED "SHOFAR, THE

VOICE OF GOD."

IT IS AVAILABLE.

YOU CAN GO TO OUR WEBSITE

AND FIND OUT HOW TO GET

AHOLD OF IT.

BUT DON IS GOING TO PLAY

FOR US.

COMING UP AFTER THAT, ONE

VIEWER ASKS "WILL I GET TO

HEAVEN, EVEN IF I SIN," SO

"BRING IT ON" IS AROUND

THE CORNER.

BUT BEFORE WE DO "BRING IT

ON," I WANT TO BRING YOU

DON HEIST PLAYING THE

SHOFAR.

Terry: FOR YEARS,

TABITHA HAS SEEN

BUSINESSES CLOSE THEIR

DOORS IN HER SMALL,

BLUE-COLLAR TOWN, AND THEN

IT HIT HOME WHEN HER

HUSBAND WAS LAID OFF.

SUDDENLY THEIR FAMILY

NEEDED HELP JUST TO MAKE

ENDS MEET.

Reporter: THE

TURNBALL FAMILY LOVE

SPENDING TIME TOGETHER.

BUT LIKE MANY RAILROAD AND

FACTORY TOWNS IN THIS PART

OF THE UNITED STATES,

NEWPORT, P.A., HAS GONE

THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES.

WHEN I SEE SOME OF THE

BUILDINGS BOARDED UP, AND

SOME HAVE EVEN HAD THEIR

BUILDINGS TORE DOWN, IT IS

KIND OF SAD TO ME BECAUSE

IT IS PART OF MY HISTORY

THAT IS DISAPPEARING, TOO.

Reporter: JERRY WAS

WORKING AS AN ELECTRICIAN

WHEN HE GOT LAID OFF FROM

HIS JOB.

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN

MY KIDS NEEDED SOME

CLOTHES OR MY FRIDGE

NEEDED SOME FOOD.

Reporter: TABITHA

TURNED TO THE BIBLE.

I CRIED AND PRAYED AND

PRAYED AND PRAYED, AND I

KNEW SOMETHING WOULD WORK

OUT, AND IT FINALLY DID.

Reporter: TABITHA'S

MOM TOLD HER ABOUT

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNER "BROAD OF LIFE."

THE FIRST TIME I

BROUGHT SOMETHING HOME

FROM "OPERATION BLESSING"

AND "BREAD OF LIFE," IT

BROUGHT MY KIDS TOGETHER.

THEY COULD DEPEND ON ME

AGAIN.

Reporter: JERRY IS

NOW WORKING FULL-TIME

HOURS, AND TABITHA GOT A

JOB AT AN OPTOMETRIST'S

OFFICE.

NOW THEY HELP OTHERS.

WHEN I VOLUNTEER WITH

"OPERATION BLESSING" OR

"BREAD OF LIFE," IT MAKES

ME FEEL GOOD AT THE END OF

THE DAY.

FOR ANYONE WHO HELPS

OUT, WHO DONATES OR HELPS

WITH EVEN JUST THEIR TIME,

I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK

YOU AND THAT YOU'RE

APPRECIATED.

WE ARE VERY

APPRECIATIVE OF PLACES

LIKE "OPERATION BLESSING"

AND "BREAD OF LIFE," I

REALLY AM.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

WE'RE CALLED THE FAMILY OF

GOD.

AND GOD PUTS US IN

FAMILIES BECAUSE WE NEED

EACH OTHER.

WE NEED HIM FIRST, AND

THEN HE USES US TO

MINISTER TO EACH OTHER.

IF YOU'RE A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, I WANT YOU TO KNOW

YOU'RE MINISTERING INTO

THE NEEDS OF OTHERS EVERY

DAY.

AND WE WANT TO SAY THANK

YOU.

IF YOU'RE NOT A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER, YOU CAN DO THAT

TODAY.

YOU CAN JOIN WITH THE REST

OF US AND SAY, I WANT TO

BE THERE FOR PEOPLE WHO

ARE HURTING, I WANT TO

GIVE PENA PEOPLE WHO NEED A

HAND-UP.

YOU CAN DO THAT BY CALLING

OUR TOLL-FREE NUMBER.

IT'S SO SIMPLE:

1-800-700-7000.

JUST CALL AND SAY, I WANT

TO JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHEN YOU DO, OUR WAY OF

ANYWAY THANK YOU TO YOU

FOR CARING ABOUT OTHERS IS

TO SEND YOU THIS.

IT IS PAT'S GIFT FOR YOU.

IT IS CALLED "THE GOSPEL

OF JOHN."

HE WENT INTO OUR SOUND

STUDIO AND RECORDED IT ON

TWO C.D.s.

THIS IS WHAT MATTHEW FROM

FLORIDA HAD TO SAY ABOUT

IT: "PAT'S READING OF THIS

BIBLICAL TREASURE IS

INSPIRING.

THE MOST PERSONAL AND

HEART-FELT STORY OF OUR

SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.

THIS IS YOUR BEST EFFORT

YET."

SO WE WANT YOU TO HAVE

THIS.

WE WANT TO BE A BLESSING

IN YOUR LIFE AS YOU ARE

SAYING, YES, I WANT TO BE

A BLESSING TO SOMEONE

ELSE.

SO WILL YOU CALL NOW AND

BE A PART OF THAT?

Pat: AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: I'M SO IMPRESSED

WITH HOW MANY MEN ARE

LISTENING TO THAT.

Terry: ME, TOO.

IF YOU'RE STRUGGLING IN

YOUR LIFE, GET THE WORD

INTO YOU AND IT WILL

CHANGE YOU.

LET'S "BRING IT ON."

THIS FIRST QUESTION COMES

FROM A VIEWER WHO SAYS, "1

CORINTHIANS 6: 9 SAYS,

KNOW YEE NOT THAT THE

UNRIGHRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT

INHABIT THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

I'VE BROKEN THESE SPECIFIC

LAWS AND HAVE BEEN

IMMORAL.

BUT I BELIEVE THAT I AM

STILL RIGHTEOUS IN THE

LORD JESUS CHRIST.

HOWEVER, I AM BOTHERED

ABOUT MY INABILITY TO

CORRECT MY LUSTFUL SIN.

WILL I STILL GO TO

HEAVEN?"

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

UNDER THE BLOOD OF JESUS

CHRIST, AND HE FORGIVES

ALL SINS.

AND BLASPHEMY WILL BE

FORGIVEN THE SONS OF MAN.

BUT THOSE WHO ARE BORN

AGAIN DON'T CONTINUALLY

SIN.

YOU SAY I'VE GOT THESE

LUSTFUL THOUGHTS, AND

YOU'VE NAMED --

Terry: MORE THAN

THOUGHTS.

HE SAYS HE HAS BROKEN

THESE.

Pat: LOOK, YOU'VE GOT

TO COME TO THE LORD, AND

HE'LL SET YOU FREE FROM

THIS STUFF.

YOU NEED TO HAVE HIM BREAK

THE BOND.

IT MAY BE THAT SOME

DEMONIC SPIRIT, OR IT MAY

BE SOMETHING IN YOU, BUT

THE LORD CAN TAKE CARE OF

THAT AND GIVE YOU A NEW

HEART AND A NEW MIND.

THE BIBLE SAYS, HOW CAN A

YOUNG MAN CLEANSE HIS WAY?

BY TAKING HEED THERETO

ACCORDING TO THIG THY WORD.

IF YOU FOCUS AND SATURATE

YOUR MIND WITH THE WORD OF

GOD, THE THOUGHTS THAT ARE

PLAGUING YOU WILL NOT HAVE

HOLD.

OBVIOUSLY, IF YOU WATCH

PORN, IF YOU LOOK AT

MAGAZINES, IF YOU LOOK AT

A LOT OF THAT STUFF THAT

IS ON TV, YOU SATURATE

YOUR MIND WITH THAT AND

THEN UARY PREY T YOU'RE PREY TO ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

YOU'RE GOING TO HEAVEN

BECAUSE OF JESUS, AND SO

THE ANSWER IS YES.

Terry: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "MY BROTHER LIVES

WITH MY MOTHER, AND THEY

ARE BOTH CHRISTIANS.

BUT MY BROTHER IS AN

ALCOHOLIC.

WHEN I WAS MARRIED AND

DOING WELL FINANCIALLY, WE

WOULD ALWAYS HELP OUT MY

BROTHER.

NOW THAT I'M DIVORCEDED

AND WE DON'T HAVE AS MUCH

MONEY, MY BROTHER NO

LONGER COMES AROUND.

HE SAYS I'M NO GOD TO HIM.

AND IN THE PAST, HE SAID

THEY WOULD BE BETTER OFF

IF I DIED BECAUSE THEY

COULD TAKE EVERYTHING I

HAVE.

MY MOTHER SIDES WITH MY

BROTHER.

THE NEAREST CHURCH IS AN

HOUR AWAY.

WHAT CAN I DO?"

Pat: I THINK WHAT YOU

OUGHT TO DO IS MOVE.

WE'RE A VERY FLUID

SOCIETY.

AND WE HAVE HIGHWAYS AND

AUTOMOBILES.

AND 30 OR 40 MILES IN OUR

SOCIETY AIN'T A VERY BIG

STEP.

I THINK YOU NEED TO GET

AWAY FROM THAT SITUATION.

YOUR BROTHER SOUNDS LIKE A

BOMB TO ME.

HE HAS BEEN LEACHING OFF

OF YOU.

AND TO TELL HIS CHILDREN

YOU'D BE BETTER OFF DEAD

BECAUSE THEY'D GET

EVERYTHING -- THAT'S

HORRIBLE.

WHAT AN AWFUL PERSON.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BE IN

THAT ENVIRONMENT.

I'M SURPRISED YOUR MOTHER

IS AN ENABLER.

THESE ARE ENABLERS FOR

SOMEBODY WHO IS DOING

SOMETHING WRONG.

I WOULD MOVE.

I WOULD FIND A WHOLE NEW

SOCIETY.

YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE SOME

ABILITY, USE IT.

WHATEVER SKILLS YOU'VE

GOT, THERE IS PLENTY FOR

YOU OUT THERE. AND THE

LORD WOUL WILL LOOK AFTER YOU.

ISN'T THAT AWFUL?

Terry: IT IS.

Pat: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

FROM 1 JOHN: "THIS IS HOW

GOD SHOWED HIS LOVE AMONG

US: HE SENT HIS ONE AND

ONLY SON INTO THE WORLD

THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH

HIM."

> WELL, TOMORROW, A

WALK-ON WHO BECAME A

RUNNING BACK FOR ONE THE

TOP COLLEGES IN AMERICA.

> FOR TERRY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PA PAT ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

AND WE'LL SEE YOU ALL

TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
