COMING UP, THE DAY

AFTER...DONALD TRUMP IS

THE PRESIDENT-ELECT.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, IT'S THE

DAY AFTER THE MOST AMAZING

ELECTION.

DONALD TRUMP HAS MADE

HISTORY, SHOCKING THE

POLITICAL EXPERTS AND

STUNNING THE WASHINGTON

ESTABLISHMENT BY WINNING

THE RACE TO BECOME THE

45th PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Wendy: AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL HAVE REPUBLICAN

PEOPLE TO WORK WITH ON

CAPITOL HILL.

GARY LANE HAS THIS LOOK AT

TRUMP'S AMAZING VICTORY IN

THE BATTLE FOR THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Reporter: AS THE

RETURNS CAME IN TUESDAY

EVENING, SOME OF THE

BATTLEGROUND STATES WERE

JUST TOO CLOSE TO CALL.

BUT WHEN PENNSYLVANIA

FINALLY WENT FOR TRUMP, IT

WAS OVER.

THE REPUBLICAN HAD SECURED

MORE THAN THE 270

ELECTORAL VOTES NEEDED TO

BECOME THE 45th

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

NOW IT IS TIME FOR

AMERICA TO BIND THE WOUNDS

OF DIVISION.

WE HAVE TO GET TOGETHER.

TO ALL REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS AND INDEPENDENTS

ACROSS THIS NATION, I SAY

IT IS TIME FOR US TO COME

TOGETHER AS ONE UNITED

PEOPLE.

Reporter: OVERNIGHT

HILLARY CLINTON CONCEDED

THE ELECTION IN A PRIVATE

PHONE CALL TO TRUMP.

CLINTON AND THE DEMOCRATS

OUTSPENT TRUMP BY NEARLY

TWO TO ONE, AND YET HE

STILL ONE, TAKING BOTH THE

ELECTORAL AND POPULAR

VOTES, AND IN THE PROCESS,

TURNING THE AMERICAN

POLITICAL MAP INTO A SEA

OF REPUBLICAN RED.

THE FINAL VOTE COUNTS HAVE

YET TO COME IN FROM ALL OF

THE STATES.

BUT BY EARLY WEDNESDAY

MORNING, TRUMP HAD TAKEN

MORE THAN THE 270

ELECTORAL VOTES NEEDED TO

WIN THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND THAT LED TO A VICTORY

CELEBRATION AT THE TRUMP

HEADQUARTERS.

Reporter: A TENSE

FIRST HOUR TURNED TO

NERVOUS EXCITEMENT AS

TRUMP'S SUPPORTERS BEGAN

TO REALIZE HE NIGHT JUST

WIN.

PEOPLE STUCK IT OUT TO THE

WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING

TO WITNESS THE FINAL

RESULTS OF THIS HISTORIC

ELECTION.

IT IS MY HIGH HONOR AND

PRIVILEGE TO INTRODUCE YOU

TO YOU THE PRESIDENT-ELECT

OF THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA, DONALD TRUMP.

Reporter: EVEN THOSE

WHO WERE ON THE TRUMP

TRAIN FROM THE VERY

BEGINNING WERE SURPRISED

BY THE VICTORY.

I'M IN SHOCK.

I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO

GO TO THE LAST MINUTE.

HE CAN MAKE AMERICA

SAFE AGAIN AND SOUND AGAIN

AND HE CAN AND WILL MAKE

AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

I'M SO HAPPY.

Reporter: THE

CAMPAIGN IS CREDITING

EVANGELICAL SUPPORT FOR

PLAYING A KEY ROLE IN HIS

WIN.

WE HAD SOME OUTSIDE

EVANGELICAL GROUPS THAT

KNOCKED ON MILLIONS OF

DOORS.

IT TOOK THIS PRO-CHOICE

BILLIONAIRE MAN FROM

MANHATTAN TO GIVE THE MOST

COMPASSIONATE DEFENSE OF

LIFE SPEECH, AND IT HELPED

MANY OF THE EVANGELICALS

AND CATHOLICS COME HOME.

JERRY FALWELL, JR. SAYS

HE IS EXCITED TO SEE TRUMP

DEFEND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM,

AND MANY OTHERS ARE JUST

READY TO SEE HIM MAKE

AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

REPORTING FROM NEW YORK

CITY, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THANKS,

ABBEY.

SO WHAT LED TO TRUMP'S

STUNNING VICTORY?

IT BECAME CLEAR THAT AFTER

NEARLY EIGHT YEARS OF

BARACK OBAMA, MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS WANTED CHANGE.

OURS WAS NOT A

CAMPAIGN, BUT RATHER AN

INCREDIBLE AND GREAT

MOVEMENT.

MADE UP OF MILLIONS OF

HARD-WORKING MEN AND WOMEN

WHO LOVE THEIR COUNTRY AND

WANT A BETTER, BRIGHTER

FUTURE FOR THEMSELVES AND

FOR THEIR FAMILIES.

Reporter: TRUMP

PROMISED TO BRING BACK

JOBS TO AMERICA.

AND IT WAS HIS APPEAL TO

VOTERS WHO USED TO BE

KNOWN AS REAGAN DEMOCRATS,

THE BLUE-COLLAR WORKERS IN

STATES LIKE PENNSYLVANIA,

WISCONSIN, AND MICHIGAN,

THAT HELPED MAKE THE

DIFFERENCE.

AND TRUMP RECEIVED 81% OF

THE EVANGELICAL VOTE.

THAT WAS ABOUT 3% MORE

THAN MITT ROMNEY RECEIVED

IN 2012.

VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT MIKE

PENCE GAVE CREDIT WHERE

CREDIT WAS DUE.

I COME TO THIS MOMENT

DEEPLY HUMBLED, GRATEFUL

TO GOD FOR THI HIS AMAZING

GRACE.

AND I'M MOSTLY GRATEFUL

FOR OUR PRESIDENT-ELECT

WHO'S LEADERSHIP AND

VISION WILL MAKE AMERICA

GREAT AGAIN.

Heather:

PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WILL

HAVE REPUBLICAN MAJORITIES

TO WORK WITH ON CAPITOL

HILL IN BOTH THE HOUSE AND

THE SENATE.

MANY POLITICAL EXPERTS

PREDICTED THAT DEMOCRATS

WOULD TAKE OVER THE

SENATE, GIVEN THE NUMBER

OF SEATS THAT THE

REPUBLICANS HAD TO DEFEND,

AND THE NEGATIVES

PERCEIVED WITH THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN.

BUT IN THE END,

REPUBLICANS PULLED OFF THE

VICTORY, COMING UP WITH

WINS IN PLACES LIKE

WISCONSIN, WHERE INCUMBENT

SENATOR RON JOHNSON WAS

WRITTEN OFF FOR MONTHS.

IT IS A BIG NIGHT FOR

WISCONSIN, AND A BIG NIGHT

FOR AMERICA.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

STARTED THE NIGHT WITH A

54-46 MAJORITY IN THE

SENATE.

TODAY THEY'RE ON TRACK TO

END UP WITH AT LEAST 52

SEATS.

G.O.P. INCUMBENTS WON IN

TOUGH RACES IN RUST BELT

STATES LIKE PENNSYLVANIA,

AND THEY WON IN MISSOURI

AND NORTH CAROLINA, WHERE

THE ENTRENCHED INCUMBENTS

FACED UPHILL BATTLE.

BATTLES.

AND THEY HANDED TRUMP A

HUGE GIFT, A

REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED

SENATE THAT CAN WORK

ALONGSIDE A

REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED

HOUSE.

A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT

AND A REPUBLICAN SENATE

AND A REPUBLICAN HOUSE CAN

DO THINGS TO CHANGE THIS

COUNTRY AND FOCUS AGAIN ON

OPPORTUNITY.

Reporter: NOTABLY,

SENATOR JOHN McCAIN WON

HIS SIXTH TERM IN THE

SENATE.

AND TAMMY DUCKWORTH

DEFEATED RON KIRK IN

ILLINOIS.

AND NEVADA ELECTED THE

COUNTRY'S FIRST LATINO

SENATOR, SUCCES SUCCEEDING HARRY

REID.

AND MARCO RUBIO WON A

SECOND TIME.

YOU CAN DISAGREE WITH

SOMEONE WITHOUT HATING

THEM.

AND YOU CAN DISAGREE WITH

THEM WITHOUT

DISLEGITIMIZING THEIR

POINT OF VIEW.

Reporter: WITH

REPUBLICAN MAJORITIES ON

CAPITOL HILL, PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL HAVE A CLEARER

PATH TO PUT HIS PROGRAMS

INTO ACTION AND MAKE SOME

KEY MOVES, LIKE NOMINATING

A NEW JUSTICE TO FILL THE

OPEN SEAT ON THE SUPREME

COURT.

IT IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY

IMPORTANT DECISIONS THAT

WILL HAVE TO BE MADE IN

THE EARLY DAYS OF A NEW

ERA IN WASHINGTON.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: HERE IS ANOTHER

INTERESTING THING, WE WERE

TRYING TO ANALYZE THIS

THING BEFORE THE ELECTION.

SOME OF THESE BELL WEATHER

COUNTIES, WILL THEY HOLD

UP.

AND HILLSBORO MISSED IT ON

THIS ONE.

BUT THERE IS VIGO COUNTY

IN INDIANA, AND THEY WERE

WRITE AGAIN.

THEY PREDICT THE NATIONS.

YOU CAN FIND OUT WHERE

THOSE COUNTIES GO, AND THE

REST OF THE NATION GOES

WITH THEM.

ANOTHER SIDEBAR, I WAS

TALKING TO SOMEBODY --

DONALD TRUMP'S MOTHER WAS

SCOTTISH.

SO THE SCOTS WILL RULE THE

WORLD, WHETHER YOU LIKE IT

OR NOT.

WITH ME IS OUR TEAM OF

EXPERTS TO ANALYZE THIS

ELECTION.

CBN NEWS POLITICAL EDITOR

JOHN WAGGI, DAVID BRODY,

AND JAY SEKULOW OF THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE.

LET ME GO TO DAVID BRODY.

YOU'VE GOT SOME

INTERESTING FIGURES, I

UNDERSTAND.

TELL US ABOUT IT.

David: IT WAS A LATE

NIGHT, SO I SAID, WHY NOT

GET OUT THE CALCULATOR AND

START CRUNCHING THESE

NUMBERS.

FOUR MILLION MORE

EVANGELICALS SHOWING UP AT

THE POLLS THIS TIME AROUND

FOR DONALD TRUMP COMPARED

TO MITT ROMNEY IN 2012.

THAT SUMS IT ALL UP.

THE SHARE OF THE

ELECTORATE WAS STILL 26%.

IN OTHER WORDS, THE

EVANGELICAL PORTION OF THE

ELECTORATE WAS 26%, BUT

THERE WERE MORE AMERICANS

VOTING, MORE EVANGELICALS

VOTING THIS TIME AROUND.

IT COMES TO AROUND FOUR

MILLION MORE.

IF YOU DIG EVEN DEEPER,

LOOK AT FLORIDA AND NORTH

CAROLINA.

WE HEAR THIS 81%, BUT IF

YOU DIG DEEPER, IN

FLORIDA, A STATE HE HAD TO

HAVE, HE WAS AT 85% OF THE

EVANGELICAL VOTERS.

IN NORTH CAROLINA, HE WAS

AT 82%.

SO IF HE DIDN'T WIN

FLORIDA AND NORTH

CAROLINA, IT WAS GAME,

SET, MATCH AND DONE.

SO EVANGELICALS CAME

THROUGH FOR HIM BIG TIME.

Pat: I HAVE NEVER

SEEN IN MY LIFETIME A

CANDIDATE FOR THE

PRESIDENCY THAT GAVE THE

EVANGELICALS THEIR AGENDA

AS THOROUGHLY AS DONALD

TRUMP.

AND THE EVANGELICALS

RESPONDED.

HE WENT TO SAY I WANT TO

HELP YOU, AND THEY SAID,

WE WANT TO HELP YOU, TOO.

AND THEY WERE AMAZINGLY ON

BOARD FOR THIS MAN.

THE POLLSTERS GOT IT

WRONG.

OUR JON WASAG JOHN WAGGI DIDN'T.

JOHN, YOU WERE ON THIS

PROGRAM THE DAY BEFORE THE

ELECTION AND YOU WERE

TALKING ABOUT 270 VOTES

AND ON AND ON AND ON.

AND YOU SAID THE

REPUBLICANS WILL LOSE A

COUPLE OF SEATS IN THE

SENATE, AND I THINK YOU

WERE OFF BY ONE SEAT.

John: RIGHT NOW IT IS

RIGHT ON, BUT THERE ARE

TWO SENATE SEATS OUT, SO

WE'LL SEE.

KELLY AYOT, AND THE

LOUISIANA RACE HAS TO GO

TO A RUNOFF BECAUSE THEY

HAVE THAT OPEN KIND OF

PRIMARY-TYPE VOTE ON

ELECTION DAY.

BUT IT IS GOING TO BE AT

LEAST 52-48.

Pat: I GOT SO SICK OF

WATCHING -- I USED TO LIKE

FOX, BUT THEY REALLY

TURNED ME OFF.

THEY HAVE GONE TO THE DARK

SIDE.

THOSE PEOPLE CAN

SPECULATING, AND HE CAN'T

DO THIS, AND HE HAS A

NARROW PATH.

YOU WERE RIGHT ON.

WHY DID THEY MISS IT SO

BAD?

John: I THINK PART OF

IT IS KIND OF A COLLECTIVE

MENTALITY IN THE BOSTON TO

WASHINGTON, D.C. CORRIDOR.

AND OUR DAVID BRODY IS NOT

AMONG THAT CAMP.

AND HE WAS OUT ON THE ROAD

A LOT, TOO.

BUT BASICALLY IT'S KIND OF

A REINFORCING THING, WHERE

THEY ALL REINFORCE EACH

OTHER ABOUT THEIR

OPINIONS.

AND YOU FIND AN INTERNAL

POLL SOMEWHERE THAT SAYS

THIS WAS ALREADY A CLOSE

RUN FOR TRUMP, AND I DON'T

SEE HOW HE CAN DO THAT,

AND THAT FEEDS ON ITSELF

WHEN YOU'RE SITTING IN

NEWSROOMS.

Pat: OBAMA CAMPAIGNED

SO HARD FOR HILLARY.

HE THOUGHT THIS WAS GOING

TO BE REPUTIATION OF HIS

LEGACY.

IS THAT HOW YOU READ IT?

David: YEAH, I THINK

THAT'S A BIG PORTION OF

THIS.

I THINK IN AMERICA, WE

WANT TO SEE CHANGE.

AND WE GET A LITTLE TIRED

IN THIS SOCIETY OF THE

SAME OLD THING.

I THINK WE SAW SOME OF

THAT.

HILLARY CLINTON WON THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE 88%

TO 8%, WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY

A VERY STRONG NUMBER.

BUT 93% -- THAT'S WHAT

OBAMA DID IN 2012 OVER

MITT ROMNEY'S 6%.

SO HILLARY CLINTON DOWN 5%

ON THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN,

AND DONALD TRUMP UP 2%

FROM WHAT MITT ROMNEY.

MITT ROMNEY DID 6% OF THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE, AND

DONALD TRUMP DID 8% OF THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTE.

VERY TELLING.

AND WHILE WE'RE ON

MINORITY POPULATIONS, THE

HISPANIC COMMUNITY HERE,

27% WENT FOR ROMNEY IN

2012.

DONALD TRUMP BEAT THAT

NUMBER, 29% WITH

HISPANICS.

HE SAID ALL ALONG HE WAS

GOING TO DO BETTER THAN

PEOPLE THOUGHT WITH

HISPANICS, AND INDEED HE

DID.

Pat: JAY SEKULOW IS

WITH US TODAY.

AND, JAY, YOU REMEMBER

CLINTON FIRED ALL OF THE

U.S. ATTORNEYS, AND THEY

TALKED ABOUT BUSH DOING

IT, AND WHAT A TERRIBLE

BLOOD-LETTING IT WOULD BE.

HOW SHOULD TRUMP HANDLE

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT?

HE SHOULD DO THREE

THINGS: FIRST ACCEPT THE

RESIGNATION OF ALL SITTING

U.S. ATTORNEYS, AND THAT'S

TRADITION AND PRACTICE.

THEY SERVE AS THE PLEASURE

OF THE PRESIDENT.

NUMBER TWO, IMMEDIATELY,

WHEN HE IS SWORN IN,

DISMISS THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE

UNITED STATES.

APPOINT AN INTERIM

A.G.ATTORNEY-GENERAL, AND

MAKE SURE IT IS SOMEONE

WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT NEEDS

TO BE CLEANED UP IN THE

F.B.I. AND THE DEPARTMENT

OF JUSTICE.

NUMBER THREE, IT WILL BE

CRITICAL TO FULFILL THE

LAW OF THE COUNCIL,

BECAUSE THERE IS A VACANCY

ON THE SUPREME COURT.

HE WILL PUT A NOMINEE

THROUGH, I'M SURE VERY

QUICKLY.

AND THERE IS GOING TO BE A

BATTLE.

REPUBLICANS ARE SUCCESSFUL

IN MAINETAINING CONTROL OF

IIN MAINTAINING THE SEATS.

A VERY CONCRETE FIRST

100-DAY PLAN IS CRITICAL.

Pat: THE REPUBLICANS

WHO HAVE CONTROL, THEY

CAN'T ALLOW A LITTLE RUMP

OF THE SENATE TO MAINTAIN

THAT FILIBUSTER.

REMEMBER WHAT THEY DID

WITH THOSE WONDERFUL

CIRCUIT COURT JUDGES?

IT TOOK YEARS TO GET

THEM THROUGH, AND SOME DID

NOT MAKE IT.

THE REPUBLICANS NEED TO

HAVE A GOOD INSTITUTIONAL

MEMORY.

HARRY REID DETONATED THE

OPTION.

PAT, WE DON'T HAVE THE

HYPOTHETICAL VACANCY AT

THE SUPREME COURT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

THERE IS A VACANCY.

SO ONCE YOU GET THROUGH

THE NEXT 71 DAYS OF THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION --

WHICH COULD BE THE MOST

DANGEROUS OF THAT

ADMINISTRATION, BECAUSE

EXECUTIVE ORDER HE'LL DO

EVERYTHING HE CAN.

I THINK THE NEXT 100 DAYS

IN FOR DONALD TRUMP WILL

FOCUS IN LARGE PART ON

OBAMACARE AND ALSO ON THE

JUDICIARY.

Pat: COMEY HAS A

10-YEAR APPOINTMENT, WHAT

DO YOU DO WITH HIM?

ASK HIM TO RESIGN.

CONGRESS COMES IN

IMMEDIATELY AND DOES AN

OVERSIGHT HEARING AND

MAYBE AN IMPEACHMENT

HEARING.

WHAT JAMES COMEY DID WAS

INCORRECT TO THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE.

HE IMPLICATED THE UNITED

STATES.

THAT IS NOT THE ROLE OF

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

THREE TIMES HE ENGAGED THE

AMERICAN ELECTORATE DURING

A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS.

IT SHOULD NOT BE

TOLERATED.

HE SHOULD GO, PERIOD.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU

THINK OF TRUMP'S

RELATIONSHIP WITH

CONGRESS.

IT LOOKS LIKE AT THIS

POINT, TRUMP DOESN'T OWE

ANYBODY ANYTHING.

HE WON THIS THING ON HIS

OWN, SO TO SPEAK.

HE HAS TO HAVE THE

CONGRESS WITH HIM, THOUGH,

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

David: PAT, HE HAS A

MANDATE.

HE HAS WON TWO STATES THAT

ARE NOW RED.

ANY TIME YOU DO THAT --

THE LAST TIME I CHECKED,

RONALD REAGAN DID THAT.

SO HE IS GOING IN WITH A

STRONG HAND.

HE IS A DEAL-MAKER.

HE IS A NEGOTIATOR.

AND HE KNOWS THE ART OF

THE DEAL.

HE'LL DO ACTUALLY PROBABLY

PRETTY WELL, WHEN IT COMES

TO THAT.

HE IS NOT A REPUBLICAN IN

THE TRUE SENSE OF THE

WORD.

HE IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC.

DEMOCRAT.

I LIKE TO CALL HIM A

"TRUMPLICAN."

HE TALKED ABOUT

INFRASTRUCTURE, AND THAT'S

GOING TO BE SOME DOLLARS

GOING OUT.

HE BELIEVES THAT HIS TAX

PLAN WILL HAVE THE GROWTH

THAT COMES WITH THAT, AND

IT WILL OFFSET THAT.

HE WILL TRY TO START TO

BUILD THAT WALL.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY

QUESTION ABOUT THAT.

YOU GO DOWN THE LIST, AND

OBVIOUSLY SUPREME COURT IS

GOING TO BE A BIG DEAL.

AND THEN THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT, WHICH HE HAS

BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR A

WHILE.

I THINK YOU'LL SEE THAT IN

THE FIRST 100 DAYS.

LET ME SAY ONE QUICK

STORY -- MIKE PENCE, JENNA

BROWDER AND I WERE IN

GREENEVILLE, NORTH

CAROLINA, AND JENNA IS

INTERVIEWING HIM ON THE

BUS, AND THERE I AM ON THE

BUS AS WELL.

AS I'M GETTING OFF THE

BUS, MIKE PENCE SAYS, HEY,

DAVID, AND I LOOK BACK AND

HE SAYS, WE'RE GOING TO

WIN THIS THING.

AND HE SAID IT WITH SUCH

CONFIDENCE.

HE SAID, "WE'RE GOING TO

WIN THIS THING."

AND THAT'S A DIRECT QUOTE.

BECAUSE HE GOT A SENSE IN

THAT RUST-BELT AREA.

HE KIND OF HAD A SENSE OF

THAT, AND WE SAW IT COME

TO FRUITION ON WEDNESDAY

NIGHT.

Pat: TRUMP SAYS HE IS

GOING TO CALL A SPECIAL

SESSION OF CONGRESS TO

REPEAL OBAMACARE.

HOW DO YOU SEE THAT

PLAYING OUT?

I THINK THAT WILL BE A

PART OF WHAT GOES ON.

THAT'S A HEAVY LIFT.

HE WILL HAVE TO BUILD A

MAJORITY.

SO THAT WILL BE AN ISSUE.

AND I THINK -- GET READY

FOR TERM LIMITS, A

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

FOR TERM LIMITS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY,

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS,

THOSE ARE HARD TO PASS.

BUT 74% OF INDEPENDENTS

WANT TERM LIMITS IN THIS

COUNTRY, AND DONALD TRUMP

DID VERY WELL WITH

INDEPENDENTS.

I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING

TO BE SAID AND SOME

MOMENTUM ON THAT FRONT

BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT, IN

ESSENCE, DONALD TRUMP RAN

ON, THAT HE IS AN OUTSIDER

AND HE WANTS TO KIND OF

DRAIN THE SWAMP.

AND PEOPLE'S POWER BASE IS

THREATENED.

HERE COMES DONALD TRUMP,

AND, BOY, HE IS A

HURRICANE FOR SURE.

Pat: JAY, WHO IS

GOING TO DO THIS?

IS IT GOING TO BE GIULIANI

GIULIANI, OR IS IT GOING

TO BE THE FORMER GOVERNOR

OF NEW JERSEY.

YOU WORKED WITH SENATOR

SESSIONS --

I WAS JUST ABOUT TO SAY

THAT, PAT.

I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO

TALKING WITH SENATOR

SESSIONS THIS AFTERNOON.

I THINK SENATE SESSIONS

HAS ANY ROLE HE WANTS.

HE CAN BE SECRETARY OF

DEFENSE OR THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE

UNITED STATES.

THERE ARE A LOT OF ROLES

FOR HIM.

I THINK JEFF SESSIONS IS

GOING TO GET A MAJOR ROLE,

MAYBE AT THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT.

AS A SENIOR RANKING MEMBER

OF THE UNITED STATES

SENATE, A WELL-EXPERIENCED

LAWYER -- HE IS THE KIND

OF GUY WHO COULD FIX THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO BE

LOOKING AT RUDY GIULANI,

OUR FRIEND FROM NEW YORK,

PROBABLY ENDS UP WITH

SOMETHING LIKE HOMELAND

SECURITY.

THAT'S A BIG PORTFOLIO

RIGHT NOW.

BEN CARSON COULD END UP

WITH, WHO KNOWS,

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION,

H.H.S.

HE MAY BE THE ONE TASKED

WITH THE WHOLE REPEAL OF

OBAMACARE.

YOU SAID SOMETHING, PAT,

AND DAVID JUST SAID

SOMETHING, I WANT TO

UNDERSCORE IT: THIS IS NOT

A WALK IN THE PARK FOR THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT.

HE DOESN'T HAVE 60 VOTES.

SO THE FILIBUSTER

POTENTIALS -- MAYBE WE CAN

GET THAT TO CONTINUE TO

NOT BE IN PLAY, BUT IT IS

NOT GOING TO BE THAT WAY

ON LEGISLATION.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO WANT

AN AGENDA AND WANT CHANGE,

ARE GOING TO HAVE TO

REALIZE THERE WILL BE

FIGHTS HERE, INCLUDING AT

THE SUPREME COURT, AND

ALSO IN LEGISLATION, THE

REPEAL OF OBAMACARE.

AND ALSO THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT.

THIS IS THE FIRST NOMINEE

WHO IS TALKING ABOUT THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT, WHICH,

OF COURSE, MUZZLES

CHURCHES.

WE'RE GOING TO SAY, THIS

IS WHAT WE THINK IS

REALISTIC FOR THE 100-DAY

PERIOD.

AND WATCH ANY EXECUTIVE

ORDERS BETWEEN NOW AND THE

END OF THE YEAR.

AND THERE IS AN ATTEMPT BY

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

FOR THE UNITED NATIONS TO

CALL FOR THE PRE-67

BORDERS FOR ISRAEL.

I SUSPECT IT WILL GO TO

THE SECURITY COUNCIL.

AND IT MAY WELL BE THAT

THE U.S. WILL NOT VETO IT.

I PRETTY MUCH KNOW THEY

WILL NOT VETO IT.

SO WE'VE GOT A REAL FIGHT

ON THAT FRONT, TOO.

Pat: THANK YOU, JAY.

JOHN, WHAT DO YOU THINK --

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

ISRAEL, THE IDEA OF THEM

HAVING A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION IMPOSED BY THE

UNITED STATES --

John: THIS COULD

CREATE A PRETTY CONVULSIVE

SITUATION IN THE WORLD AT

LARGE.

ISRAEL IS PROBABLY

BREATHING A SIGH OF RELIEF

RIGHT NOW THAT, YOU KNOW,

THE PRESSURE -- ALL OF

THAT PRESSURE OF EIGHT

YEARS OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS OFF,

AND, FRANKLY, SOME

PRESSURE FROM THE BUSH

ADMINISTRATION THROUGH THE

STATE DEPARTMENT.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE IF THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION LAUNCHES

REFORM OF THE STATE

DEPARTMENT.

ONE THING THEY PROPOSED ON

ISRAEL, HIS TOP ADVISOR,

DAVID FRIEDMAN, HE

PROPOSED MOVING THE U.S.

EMBASSY FROM TEL AVIV TO

JERUSALEM.

AND RECOGNIZING JERUSALEM

AS ISRAEL'S CAPITAL.

THOSE ARE JUST TWO THINGS

HE RECOMMENDED.

IN 1995 THEY VOTED THAT.

Pat: IT HAS BEEN

HANGING THAT LONG.

WE HAVE THE LAND AND

EVERYTHING READY TO MOVE,

AND THEY SAID, NO, THE

CAPITAL OF ISRAEL IS TEL

AVIV.

THAT IS INSANE.

John: THAT'S STATE

DEPARTMENT ENTRENCHED

POLICY.

THE BUREAUCRATS PERSIST IN

KEEPING THAT GOING, AND

THEY'LL CONTINUE TO DO IT.

SO HE'LL HAVE A BATTLE ON

HIS HANDS FOR THAT.

NOT TO MENTION THE UPSET

THAT COULD BE CAUSED

WITHIN THE MIDDLE EAST

OVER THAT ISSUE.

YOU'RE TALKING SOME

SERIOUS INFLAMMATORY KIND

OF MOVES THERE.

BUT MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE,

ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE, IT IS THE RIGHT

MOVE.

Pat: IT HAS TO BE.

WE HAVE TO STAND BY THE

PRESIDENT TO HELP HIM.

HE HAS TO CLEAN OUT THE

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND ALL

OF THE U.S. ATTORNEYS

ACROSS THE NATION, WHO

WILL OFFER RESIGNATIONS,

AND HE'LL HAVE TO FILL

THOSE VACANCIES.

EVERY SINCE JOHN F.

KENNEDY, THE STATE

DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN

BLOCKING THE INITIATIVES

OF THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE.

IT IS TIME THE STATE

DEPARTMENT GOT CLEANED

OUT.

THEY'RE ENTRENCHED

FOREVER.

AND THERE HAS BEEN AN

ANAMOUS AGAINST ISRAEL IN

THE STATE DEPARTMENT, AND

THAT HAS GOT TO BE FIXED.

THE PRESIDENT HAS HIS

HANDS FULL.

IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME

TO PRAY -- YOU PRAYED AND

GOD HAS GIVEN US THIS MAN,

LIKE A MODERN DAY CYRUS.

REMEMBER THE KING OF PERJU

HELPED REBUILD

JERUSALEM -- WELL, I THINK

TRUMP IS A MODERN DAY

CYRUS.

HE IS PLACED IN BY THE

HAND OF THE LORD.

AND PEOPLE RECOGNIZE THIS

AND THEY'RE THRILLED.

BUT NOW HE HAS GOT TO

GOVERN, AND HE HAS TO DEAL

WITH CONGRESS.

HE HAS TO DEAL WITH THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

HE HAS TO DEAL WITH THE

COURTS.

HE HAS TO DEAL WITH ALL OF

THESE PEOPLE.

SO PRAY FOR THE LEADERS

AND PRAY FOR OUR

PRESIDENT.

WELL, WE'LL HAVE MORE AS

WE CONTINUE, AND HERE IS

WENDY.

Wendy: THANKS SO

MUCH, PAT.

> COMING UP, SHE IS AN

AWARD-WINNING SINGER AND A

MODERN DAY ABOLITIONIST.

I'LL NEVER FORGET

MEETING THIS GIRL WHO WAS

SOLD ON HER 12th

BIRTHDAY BY HER OWN

PARENTS.

SHE TOOK MY HANDS AND SHE

JUST SAID, JESUS, JESUS,

JESUS, JESUS, JESUS.

Wendy: NATALIE GRANT

TAKES A STAND AGAINST

HUMAN TRAFFICKING, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

*

Wendy: AT ONEPOINT IN

HER CAREER, NATALIE GRANT

COULDN'T SING.

SMSHE COULDN'T EVEN SPEAK.

THE FIVE-TIME FEMALE

VOCALIST OF THE YEAR WAS

TOLD BY DOCTORS SHE

COULDN'T EVEN WHISPER.

ODDLY ENOUGH, THAT'S WHEN

NATALIE FOUND HER TRUE

VOICE.

TAKE A LOOK.

* YOU'RE A GREAT GOD, AND

WE LOVE YOU *

Reporter:

AWARD-WINNING ARTIST NATLY

GRAHAM IS ONE OF THE MOST

RECOGNIZED NAMES IN

CONTEMPORARY MUSIC.

BUT IN 2004, SHE SAYS SHE

FOUND A PURPOSE THAT GOES

BEYOND HER MUSIC CAREER.

THE IRONY IS IT HAS

VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH

SINGING.

SINGING IS WHAT I DO.

IT'S NOT WHO I AM.

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THE JOURNEY TO DISCOVERING

HER PASSION STARTED WHILE

WATCHING THE TV SHOW "LAW

AND ORDER."

THE EPISODE WAS ABOUT

HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

I JUST REMEMBER THAT TV

SHOW ALWAYS SAYING THEY

WERE RIPPED FROM THE

HEADLINES.

AND I WAS THINKING, WHAT

HEADLINE IS THIS?

THEY WOULD LITERALLY

DEPICT THESE KIDS BEING

SOLD OUT OF THE BACK OF A

VAN IN NEW YORK CITY.

AND THIS IS THE MOST

INNOCENT AMONG US.

I REMEMBER THINKING, IF

THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING

SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD, I

NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT, AND

A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE NEED

TO KNOW ABOUT IT.

Reporter: SO SHE MADE

PLANS TO TRAVEL TO INDIA,

THE AREA MANY CONSIDER TO

BE THE EPICENTER OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING.

BUT TWO DAYS BEFORE THE

TRIP, ONE OF HER VOCAL

CHORDS RUPTURED.

YOU CANNOT SPEAK, HUM,

WHISPER, NOT A SINGLE

SOUND FOR AT LEAST 30

DAYS.

AND I'M LEAVING FOR INDIA.

Reporter: VOICELESS,

SHE WENT ANYWAY.

I WILL NEVER FORGET

MEETING THIS GIRL WHO WAS

SOLD ON HER 12th

BIRTHDAY BY HER OWN

PARENTS, AND RESCUED WHEN

SHE WAS 21.

SO FOR NINE YEARS SHE WAS

TRAFFICKED.

SHE DID KNOW ONE THING SHE

KNEW IN ENGLISH, SHE TOOK

MY HANDS AND SHE JUST

SAID, JESUS, JESUS, JESUS.

SHE THOUGHT, OKAY, I CAN'T

GO INTO ALL OF MY STORY IN

ENGLISH, BUT WHEN I SAY

THIS NAME, YOU'RE GOING TO

KNOW THAT EVERYTHING HAS

BEEN MADE RIGHT.

I CAME HERE TRYING TO

LEARN HOW I CAN RESCUE

THEM, AND THESE, WHO HAVE

SO MUCH BROKENNESS, SHOWED

ME THAT JESUS DOES HIS

BEST WORK THROUGH BROKEN

PIECES.

WHEN YOU CAN'T MAKE A

SOUND, AND ALL YOU CAN DO

IS JUST LEAN ON GOD AND

LISTEN, IT IS AMAZING WHAT

HAPPENS.

Reporter: IN 2005,

NATALIE CO-FOUNDED THE

NON-PROFIT "HOPE FOR

JUSTICE."

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE

THAT JUST STARTED AS A

LITTLE DREAM OFF OF

MEETING THOSE GIRLS IN

INDIA, IS NOW ON THREE

DIFFERENT CONTINENTS IN

FOUR DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

IN SIX DIFFERENT OFFICES.

IT IS AMAZING, WHEN YOU

USE YOUR VOICE TO DO WHAT

GOD HAS PLACED INSIDE OF

YOU.

* WE CAN BE THE CHANGE

Reporter: NOW THE

ARTIST, WIFE, MOTHER, AND

BUSINESS WOMAN HOPES TO

HELP OTHER WOMEN FIND

GOD'S CALLING IN THEIR OWN

LIVES IN HER BOOK "FINDING

YOUR VOICE."

AND SHE SHARES HER OWN

JOURNEY THROUGH BULEMIA,

INFERTILITY, TO FIND GOD'S

PURPOSE IN HER LIFE, AND

IT STARTS WITH GOD'S WORD.

AND ALL THROUGH THE

BOOK, FROM START TO

FINISH, IT IS FULL OF MY

STORY, BUT MORE THAN THAT,

IT IS FULL OF BIBLICAL

EXAMPLES.

BECAUSE THE FOUNDATION TO

FINDING YOUR VOICE IS THE

WORD OF GOD.

Reporter: NATALIE

SAYS ULTIMATELY A PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WILL

GIVE WOMEN THE CONFIDENCE

TO LIVE THEIR PASSION

OUTLOUD.

AND MY PRAYER IS THAT

EVERY PERSON THAT READS

THE BOOK, WHEN THEY PUT IT

DOWN, THEIR TAKE-AWAY

WOULD BE FINDING THEIR

IDENTITY IN JESUS CHRIST,

AND SEEING OURSELVES

THROUGH THE LENS OF CHRIST

AND HIS GRACE OVER OUR

LIFE.

IT BEGINS TO CHANGE EVERY

ASPECT OF OUR LIVES.

IT WILL STRENGTHEN OUR

MARRIAGE.

IT WILL STRENGTHEN OUR

ABILITY TO PARENT.

IT WILL STRENGTHEN OUR

FRIENDSHIPS.

IT STRENGTHENS EVERYTHING

ABOUT OUR LIFE.

WHEN YOU CAN FIND YOUR

VOICE IN FIRST

UNDERSTANDING HIS VOICE

OVER YOUR LIFE, I THINK

THAT IS MY PRAYER, THAT

EVERY PERSON WHO READS IT

WOULD HAVE A GREATER

UNDERSTANDING OF WHO THEY

ARE IN CHRIST.

AND I THINK THAT

UNDERSTANDING CHANGES

EVERYTHING.

Wendy: OH, I JUST

LOVE NATL NATALIE GRANT.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE

ABOUT HER NON-PROFIT

CALLED "HOPE FOR JUSTICE,"

JUST LOG ON TO cbn.com..

> COMING UP IT IS TIME

TO "BRING IT ON."

JANT WANTS TO KNOW, WHEN

WE DIE, DO WE GO TO

HEAVEN, OR DO WE REMAIN IN

THE GRAVE UNTIL JESUS

RETURNS?

PAT WILL ANSWER THAT AND

SO MUCH MORE, SO DON'T GO

AWAY.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

THERE WERE SOME NOTABLE

BALLOT INITIATIVES AROUND

THE COUNTRY IN THIS YEAR'S

ELECTION.

SEVERAL STATES VOTED TO

LEGALIZE THE USE OF

MARIJUANA.

THE DRUG IS NOW LEGAL FOR

RECREATIONAL PURPOSES IN

CALIFORNIA, MASSACHUSETTS,

NEVADA, AND MAINE.

IT WAS ALSO ON THE BALLOT

IN ARIZONA, BUT FAILED.

AND IN FLORIDA, ARKANSAS,

AND NORTH DAKOTA, VOTERS

LEGALIZED ACCESS FOR

MEDICAL PURPOSES, ONLY.

> CHANGES ARE ON THE WAY

FOR DEATH PENALTY LAWS IN

OKLAHOMA AND NEBRASKA.

BOTH STATES VOTING TO

REAFFIRM CAPITAL

PUNISHMENT.

THE MEASURES PASSED WITH A

GROWING CONCERN ABOUT

LETHAL INJECTION MATTERS.

IN NEBRASKA, VOTERS

REINSTATED THE DEATH

PENALTY, WHICH NULLIFIES

THE HISTORIC 2015 VOTE BY

STATE LAWMAKERS TO REPEAL

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, WE

LIVE IN A GREAT COUNTRY.

THIS IS THE MOST BOUNTIFUL

COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

NATION LIKE THE UNITED

STATES, NEVER IN HISTORY.

THERE HAS BEEN NO NATION

THAT HAS BEEN BLESSED BY

AMERICA.

WE HAVE SUCH BOUNTY IN

AMERICA.

AS A RESULT, THERE

SHOULDN'T BE ANY PEOPLE

AMONG US WHO ARE HUNGRY.

WE SHOULDN'T HAVE PEOPLE

WHO ARE OUT IN THE

STREETS.

WE SHOULDN'T HAVE BIG

BREAD LINES AND SOUP

KITCHENS AND ALL OF THAT.

WE OUGHT TO HAVE PEOPLE

WHO ARE ENJOYING THE JOY

OF THIS GREAT LAND WE LIVE

IN.

THANKSGIVING IS COMING UP,

AND I HOPE THAT YOU WILL

MEET WITH THE FAMILY, AS I

PLAN TO, AND SIT AROUND A

TABLE WITH A WONDERFUL

THANKSGIVING DINNER AND

ALL OF THE REST OF IT, AND

HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS.

WE WANT TO DO THAT.

BUT THERE ARE THOSE WHO

ARE NOT AS FORTUNATE, AND

SO CBN IS GOING TO HAVE A

SPECIAL THANKSGIVING FOR

PEOPLE, AND WE'RE ASKING

YOU TO HELP.

AND HERE IS WHAT SOME

YEARS AGO -- A LONG, LONG

TIME AGO, I ASKED MY WIFE,

HOW MUCH ARE WE GOING TO

SPEND ON THANKSGIVING

DINNER.

AND SHE TOLD ME, AND I

SAID, WELL, IF WE'RE GOING

TO EAT THAT OURSELVES,

DON'T YOU THINK WE OUGHT

TO RIGHT A CHECK OF THAT

EQUAL AMOUNT TO GIVE TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" SO

THEY CAN GIVE IT OUT TO

THE CHURCHES AND PEOPLE

AROUND THE COUNTRY SO

THEY'LL HAVE FOOD, TOO?

AND SO WE DID THAT.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE

JOINED.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE ASK YOU

TO DO.

FIGURE OUT -- YOU KNOW,

THE AVERAGE FAMILY IS

GOING TO SPEND ABOUT $800

ON CHRISTMAS.

I'M NOT ASKING FOR THAT

MUCH.

IF YOU WANT TO DO IT,

FINE.

BUT YOUR THANKSGIVING MEAL

OR YOUR CHRISTMAS MEAL,

FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH THAT

WILL BE AND WRITE A CHECK

TO "OPERATION BLESSING,"

AND THIS IS COMING OUT --

CBN CENTER, VIRGINIA

BEACH, VIRGINIA, AND THIS

IS THE CBN THANKSGIVING.

THIS WILL COME IN THE MAIL

TO YOU.

AND JUST RIGHT A CHECK.

$50.

$75.

$100 -- WHATEVER.

AND THAT WILL MAKE YOU

FEEL GOOD.

AND WHEN YOU SIT DOWN TO

YOUR FOOD AND YOUR FEAST

WITH YOUR FAMILY, YOU'LL

THINK, HEY, WHILE I'M

DOING THIS, THERE ARE

OTHER PEOPLE WHO WILL BE

ENJOYING LIFE AS WELL.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ASKING

YOU TO DO.

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS

THERE.

IT IS TOLL-FREE NUMBERS IF

YOU WANT TO CALL AND

PLEDGE: IT IS

1-800-700-7000.

Wendy: THAT'S THE

REAL SUPPORT OF

THANKSGIVING.

IT IS BETTER TO GIVE --

Pat: TO MATCH WHAT

YOU ARE GOING TO EAT ON

THANKSGIVING, TO GIVE TO

THE POOR.

Wendy: I LOVE IT.

> ALL RIGHT, CBN

PROGRAMS AIR THROUGHOUT

THE WORLD, AND ONE OF OUR

MOST POPULAR IS A VERSION

OF "700 CLUB" THAT AIRS IN

INDIA, WHERE ONE OF OUR

VIEWERS WAS A HINDU GIRL

WHO WATCHED OUR PROGRAM IN

SECRET.

Reporter: ONE

MORNING, WHILE MAKING TEA

FOR HER FAMILY, JANIE CAME

ACROSS CBN'S PROGRAM,

WHICH MEANS A BRAND NEW

LIFE.

SHE SAW A STORY ABOUT A

GIRL WHO'S FAMILY MEMBERS

HAD ALL PASSED AWAY.

THIS GIRL, WHO HAD LOST

EVERYTHING, DIDN'T GIVE UP

ON LIFE.

I WONDERED, WHAT WAS THE

REASON THAT WAS DRIVING

HER TO MOVE FORWARD IN

LIFE.

Reporter: JANIE FOUND

OUT THAT REASON WAS JESUS.

SHE WANTED TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT HIM, BUT GROWING UP

IN A STRICT HINDU FAMILY

IT WAS FORBIDDEN TO

EXPLORE OTHER RELIGIONS.

SO FOR THE NEXT THREE

MONTHS SHE SECRETLY

WATCHED THE SHOW AND

LEARNED ABOUT SALVATION

AND HOW GOD FORGIVES SINS.

AND SHE EVEN HAD SOME OF

HER PRAYERS TO JESUS

ANSWERED.

THAT'S WHEN SHE KNEW IT

WAS TIME TO MAKE A

DECISION.

I WENT TO MY ROOM,

LOCKED THE DOOR, GOT ON MY

KNEES, CONFESSED MY SINS

AND GAVE MY LIFE TO JESUS.

AFTER THAT, FOR THE FIRST

TIME IN MY LIFE I FELT THE

PEACE OF GOD AND MY HEART

WAS FILLED WITH LOVE.

Reporter: JANIE

WANTED HER FAMILY TO FEEL

THE SAME PEACE AND LOVE,

SO SHE PRAYED IN FRONT OF

THEM FOR PERSONAL PROBLEMS

THEY FACED.

MANY TIMES MY PARENTS

WERE LISTEN, AND SO THIS

MADE MY PARENTS SLOWLY

JOIN THE LORD.

THEY ALSO STARTED WATCHING

THE SHOW.

IT WAS AROUND THAT TIME

THAT MY YOUNGER BROTHER

STARTED TO HAVE SUICIDAL

THOUGHTS.

SO I TOLD MY PARENTS,

LET'S ALL PRAY.

AND WHEN WE PRAYED, GOD

DELIVERED HIM FROM ALL OF

THOSE THOUGHTS.

WHEN MY PARENTS SAW THE

CHANGE, THEY STARTED

BELIEVING THAT JESUS IS

THE ONE, TRUE GOD, AND

THEY DECIDED TO DEDICATE

THEIR LIVES TO HIM.

Reporter: TODAY

JANIE'S ENTIRE FAMILY IS

CHRISTIAN.

THEY START THEIR DAY WITH

PRAYER, AND WATCH THE

SHOW.

THROUGH THIS SHOW, MY

LIFE HAS CHANGED.

MY FAMILY MEMBERS' LIVES

HAVE CHANGED AND PEACE IS

RESTORED IN MY FAMILY.

THROUGH THIS SHOW, I HAVE

GAINED A DEEPER CONNECTION

WITH THE LORD, AND I'VE

EXPERIENCED HIS LOVE.

Wendy: YOU KNOW, WHEN

YOU JOIN "THE 700 CLUB,"

YOU DO SO MUCH MORE THAN

FEED THE HUNGRY, CLOTHE

THE SICK -- YOU DO THAT,

BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY, YOU

HELP SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS

OF JESUS CHRIST TO PLACES

LIKE INDIA, TO PLACES LIKE

NEPAL, TO PLACES LIKE YOU

CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE, WHERE

THIS SHOW GOES.

I'VE BEEN IN ISRAEL, I'VE

BEEN IN SOUTHERN

PHILIPPINES, AND I'VE

TURNED ON THE TV, AND I'VE

SEEN "THE 700 CLUB."

YOU'RE THE ONE WHO MAKES

THAT HAPPEN WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS JUST 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH, IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BECOME A CBN

PARTNER.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO

BLESS YOU BACK.

PAT HAS PUT TOGETHER THIS

READING OF THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN.

IT'S FOR YOU WHEN YOU JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN

RIGHT NOW: 1-800-700-7000.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS.

PAT WAS IN THE STUDIO AND

HE READ THE ENTIRE GOSPEL

OF JOHN.

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU LISTEN TO

THE WORD.

THERE IS SOMETHING THAT

JUST WASHES OVER YOU, THAT

YOU CAN'T REALLY

EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU READ

IT.

YOU CAN PUT THIS IN YOUR

CAR.

YOU CAN LISTEN TO THIS

WHEN YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY TO

WORK, ON YOUR WAY TO THE

GYM.

IT IS A GREAT WAY TO GET

THE WORD OF GOD DOWN IN

YOUR SPIRIT.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU CALL RIGHT NOW.

GUESS WHAT, PAT, SOMEBODY

REALLY LIKES IT.

LINTINE, FROM

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA,

SAYS, "I FOUND THAT

LISTENING TO THE GOSPEL OF

JOHN MADE ME FEEL MORE

INTIMATELY AWARE OF GOD'S

WONDERFUL PROVISION FOR

ME.

IT GREAT LOVE BRING JOY

AND HOPE."

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US

KNOW YOU REALLY LIKED IT.

> COMING UP, FIND OUT

HOW OUR MILITARY MEN AND

WOMEN ARE TAKING THE BIBLE

TO THE BATTLEFIELD, AND IT

FITS INTO THE PALM OF

THEIR HANDS.

THAT'S NEXT.

*

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

OUR MO MODERN DAY WARRIORS

ARE EQUIPPEDARMOUR AND

HELMETS TO SHIELD THE

HEAD, BUT UNTIL NOW THEY

HAVEN'T HAD ANYTHING THAT

PROTECTS THEIR MINDS.

ONE FORMER CHAPEL HAS COME

UP WITH AN IDEA FOR

SOLDIERS TO TAKE THE BIBLE

INTO THE BATTLEFIELD.

ANG Reporter: WHAT HASN'T

CHANGED IS THE PHYSICAL

AND MENTAL STRESS OF LIFE

IN A COMBAT ZONE.

MAJOR MATT CASSIDY SERVED

TWO TOURS IN AFGHANISTAN.

AS A CHAPLAIN, YOU GO

EVERY PLACE YOUR SOLDIERS

GO.

YOU WORK AT 110% CAPACITY

BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO.

Reporter: HE RECEIVED

THE PURPLE HEART FOR

INJURIES SUSTAINED WHEN

HIS HUMVEE WAS ATTACKED BY

A GROUP OF TALIBAN.

WHEN YOU START GETTING

SHOT AT, IT BECOMES A LOT

MORE REAL.

Reporter: AND THEN

THERE ARE HOURS OF

THOUGHTS ABOUT HOME.

ACCORDING TO ONE STUDY, A

THIRD OF TROOPS SERVING ON

THE FRONT LINE DEVELOP

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS

DISORDER.

BUT ONE ORGANIZATION HOPES

TO CHANGE THAT STATISTIC,

USING A BIT OF INGINUITY

AND THE WORD OF GOD.

MAJOR CASSIDY SAYS HE USED

THIS TECHNOLOGY TO HELP IN

AFGHANISTAN.

HE WOULD LISTEN TO THE NEW

TESTAMENT IN THE BIBLE.

IT ALLOWS YOU TO FEEL

LIKE YOU'RE THERE.

AND YOU'RE MORE CALM AND

YOU'RE MORE COMFORTED.

YOU'RE MORE RELAXED, AND

YOU'RE LESS ANXIOUS.

YOU REMEMBER YOUR FAITH

AND YOUR FAMILY.

Reporter: TROY CARL,

THE VICE PRESIDENT AT

"FAITH COMES BY HEARING,"

SAYS THE BIBLICAL STICK

PROJECT WAS DEVELOPED WITH

TODAY'S SOLDIER IN MIND.

THE AVERAGE AGE OF THE

PERSON SERVING TODAY IS

ABOUT 24 YEARS OLD,

THEY'RE AN iPOD

GENERATION.

SO IT GIVES THEM A WAY TO

ENGAGE WITH THE BIBLE THAT

IS CLOSE TO THEIR

GENERATION.

Reporter: I'M BIBLE

STICKS ARE CURRENTLY

ISSUED TO TROOPS ON THE

GROUND TODAY.

THE TRUTH IS WE'RE

BARELY KEEPING UP WITH ALL

NEW RECRUITS THAT ARE

COMING INTO THE MILITARY.

PRAISE GOD, 720,000

MILITARY BIBLE STICKS HAVE

BEEN GIVEN.

Reporter: HE

UNDERSTANDS THE CHALLENGES

FACING THESE TROOPS.

THEY'LL GO OUT ON A

DEPLOYMENT OR PATROL, AND

THEY'LL BE OUT FOR 16

HOURS, 18 HOURS.

AND THEY COME BACK

EXHAUSTED, BUT THEY'RE ALL

KEYED UP FROM BEING OUT ON

PATROL.

AND THEY'LL POP THE

EARBUDS INTO THEIR HEAD

AND TURN IT ON AND LAY

DOWN ON THEIR COT.

AND IT ALLOWS THEM TO PULL

AWAY FROM EVERYTHING THAT

HAPPENED THROUGH THE DAY

AND LISTEN TO SCRIPTURE

WITHOUT EXERTING ANY EXTRA

EFFORT BECAUSE THEY'RE

EXHAUSTED.

Reporter: BY ALL

REPORTS, HEARING THE WORD

OF GOD IS HELPING TO PUT

THEIR MIND AT EASE.

THE TESTIMONIES THAT WE

DO GET BACK THAT I'VE BEEN

ABLE TO READ, TALKS ABOUT

PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AT

THE END OF THEIR ROPE

EMOTIONALLY, SPIRITUALLY,

PHYSICALLY, AND THIS IS

SOMETHING THAT ALLOWS THEM

TO HAVE SOMETHING HOLD OF.

THE BEST TESTIMONY WAS

FROM A MASTER SERGEANT,

THAT AFTER BEING DEPLOYED

IN IRAQ, HE WAS HIT BY AN

I.E.D.

HE SAID, YOU HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THIS DEVICE IS

PROBABLY THE MOST VALUABLE

TOOL FOR ME.

I SUFFER FROM PTSD, AND HE

SAID MY BODY WILL

NATURALLY REPEL THE

SHRAPNEL THAT IN THE

FLESH, BUT HE SAID WHAT DO

I DO TO REPEL THEMENTAL

SHRAPNEL.

THE MENTAL

SHAP NEL.

SHRAPNEL?

Reporter: HE SAYS IT

ALSO HELPS THEM ANSWER THE

MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF

ALL?

IMAGINE BEING A YOUNG

MAN OR WOMAN SERVING IN

HARM'S WAY AND YOU'RE

BEING FACED WITH YOUR OWN

MORTALITY?

DON'T YOU WANT TO KNOW

MORE THAN JUST A SERMON?

YOU WANT TO KNOW, WHAT DID

JESUS REALLY SAY?

AND IS MY ETERNAL FUTURE

REALLY SECURE?

Reporter: HE SAYS THE

VETERANS AND SOLDIERS

DEEPLY APPRECIATE THIS

GIFT.

THERE ARE 90% OF PEOPLE

THAT WE CAN LET KNOW

THEY'RE CHEERED FOR, THAT

THEIR LOVED AND HONOR,

THAT YOUR COUNTRY LOVES

THEM AND SUPPORTS THEM.

Wendy: THANKS,

ANGELA.

A GREAT STORY.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE

INFORMATION ON THE

MILITARY'S BIBLE STICKS

PROGRAM, LOG ON TO

cbn.com, AND YOU'LL FIND

IT THERE.

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON."

"DEAR DOCTOR ROBERTSON,

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE

HEALTH INFORMATION.

ON A PREVIOUS PROGRAM IT

WAS SAID THAT THE REAL

HEALTH DANGER WAS

INFLAMMATION BY EATING

EXCESS SUGAR.

IS THIS ALL SUGAR, OR JUST

THE REFINED SUGAR?

I AM TRYING TO USE BANANAS

AND HONEY, AND ARE THESE

BAD, TOO?"

Pat: THE ANSWER IS

NO, SUGAR IS SUGAR.

THE SUGAR THAT IS BUFFERED

IN THE NATURAL FORM, LIKE

FRUIT, IS NOT NEAR AS BAD

AS THE PROCESSED SUGAR.

THE THING I'M CONCERNED

ABOUT IS HIGH FRUCTOSE

CORN SYRUP.

BUT WHETHER IT IS HONEY OR

NATURAL SYRUP OR MAPLE

SYRUP, SUGAR IS SUGAR.

IF YOU'RE EATING FRUIT, IT

WILL BE ABSORBED IN A

DIFFERENT FASHION.

Wendy: THIS IS THE

APPLE SEASON.

I'M TRYING TO EAT MORE

APPLES.

AND EVEN APPLE CIDER.

I KNOW THAT IS JUICE AND

IT IS SWEET, BUT IT IS

BETTER THAN A COKE.

Pat: WHEN I GREW UP,

MY FOLKS BUILT THEIR HOUSE

IN THE MIDDLE OF AN APPLE

ORCHARD.

AND I WAS EATING THOSE

BLOSSOMS, AND WE'D HAVE

APPLES ALL OVER.

I LOVE APPLES.

Wendy: AND NO

PESTICIDES ON THEM -- OH,

THOSE WERE THE DAYS.

> JANET SAYS, "WHEN WE

DIE, DO WE GO TO HEAVEN OR

DO WE REMAIN IN THE GRAVE

UNTIL JESUS RETURNS?"

GOOD QUESTION.

Pat: WHEN JESUS WAS

NAILED ON THE CROSS, THE

THIEF SAID TO HIM, LORD,

REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME

INTO YOUR KINGDOM.

AND JESUS SAID, THIS DAY

YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN

PARADISE.

HE DIDN'T SAY THIS DAY

YOU'RE GOING TO GO TO SOUL

SLEEP.

AND THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID

WHETHER TO DIE AND BE WITH

THE LORD, WHICH IS FAR

BETTER, THAN TO REMAIN IN

THE FLESH.

SO DIE AND BE WITH THE

LORD.

SO THIS CONCEPT OF SOUL

SLEEP ISN'T IN THE BIBLE.

YOUR BODY WILL DIE, BUT

YOUR SPIRIT LIVES ON.

YOUR SPIRIT IS ETERNAL.

IT IS GOING TO GO TO SOME

PLACE OR OTHER.

THERE IS A PLACE CALLED

PARADISE, KIND OF A

RESTING PLACE FOR THE

SOULS UNTIL THE FINAL

JUDGMENT.

AND THEN WE WILL BE UNITED

WITH A RESURRECTION BODY.

AND THEN IT IS A QUESTION

OF WHERE DO YOU GO?

AND THAT DEPENDS ON WHAT

YOUR RELATIONSHIP IS WITH

JESUS.

Wendy: THIS ONE SAYS,

"DOES GOD REALLY EXIST?

DOES HE LISTEN TO OUR

PRAYERS, AND DOES HE

ANSWER OUR PRAYERS?"

Pat: HERE AT CBN,

SINCE WE STARTED COUNTING,

WE HAVE RECEIVED WELL OVER

NOW 100 MILLION PRAYER

REQUESTS.

100 MILLION.

AND OF THAT AMOUNT, THERE

ARE AT LEAST 2.5 MILLION

PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECEIVED

ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

ON THIS PROGRAM, WHEN WE

BEGAN TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE,

WE HAVE HAD WORDS OF

KNOWLEDGE -- I WAS PRAYING

WITH TERRY YESTERDAY, AND

WE READ SOMETHING WHERE WE

HAD A TESTIMONY OF A

PERSON WHO HAD A BACK

PROBLEM.

AND TERRY HAD A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE.

AND THIS PERSON FELT

ELECTRICITY IN THEIR BODY

AND WAS HEALED INSTANTLY.

NOW, THAT'S GOD.

BUT, YOU KNOW, WE ARE INED

GOD, AND GOD IS IN US.

GOD IS EVERYWHERE.

AND, YOU KNOW -- SO HOW

CAN YOU HAVE A UNIVERSE

WITHOUT HIM?

WE HAVE 2.5 MILLION

MIRACLES.

HOW ABOUT THAT.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

THIS VIEWER WRITES IN,

"THE BIBLE SAYS IN JOHN

14: 2, IN MY FATHER'S

HOUSE THERE ARE MANY

MANSIONS.

IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD

HAVE TOLD YOU.

I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE

FOR YOU.

DO YOU THINK JESUS HAS A

MANSION OF HIS OWN IN

HEAVEN?

HE IS GOD AND HE CAN DO

WHATEVER WE WANT, I'M

SURE."

Pat: WER WERE TALKING

ABOUT TRUMP, AND HE LIVES

IN A PALACE, AND HE'LL GO

TO A SLUMP WHEN HE GOES TO

WASHINGTON -- I DON'T

BELIEVE IN MANSIONS.

THE ENGLISH DEFINITION OF

THAT IS RESTING PLACE, NOT

MANSION.

I HAVE A RESTING PLACE, OR

A PLACE OF HABITATION.

NOT NECESSARILY MANSIONS.

I HAVE A MANSION OVER THE

HILLSIDE -- IT SOUNDS SO

NICE.

THEY ARE PLACES.

IN OTHER WORDS, THERE ARE

HABITTATIONHABITATIONS FOR US.

JESUS, HE HAS IT ALL.

HE IN HABIT INHANTSHABITS THE ENTIRE

UNIVERSE.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS

POWER MINUTE: "NOW THE

LORD IS THE SPIRIT, AND

WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE

LORD IS, THERE IS

LIBERTY."

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

TOMORROW THE BATTLE

AGAINST ISIS IS ON.

WE'LL TELL YOU HOW THE

TERROR GROUP GOT STARTED.

THAT'S THURSDAY ON "THE

700 CLUB."

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

GOD BLESS YOU.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
