ZOMBIES, PLAGUES AND END

OF

THE WORLD THEMES SATURATE OUR

STORY LINES.

IS IT POSSIBLE WE ARE LIVING

IN THE LAST DAYS, AND WHAT

ARE

THE SIGNS WE SHOULD LOOK FOR.

HEAR WHY SOME BELIEVE THE

BIBLICAL END TIMES ARE UPON

US

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB"

INTERACTIVE.

*

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

SHOW,

A RECENT ARTICLE IS ASKING

PEOPLE A QUESTION. ARE WE

LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS.

THE ARTICLE LIST FIVE

REASONS,

SOME CHRISTIANS THINK WE ARE.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND

EXAMINE IT.

HERE IS NO. 1, INCREASING

CHAOS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

THIS IS BACKED UP BY THE

BIBLE. IF YOU LOOK AT EZEKIEL

38.

HERE IS A LISTING IN THAT

CHAPTER OF ALL THESE

DIFFERENT

NATIONS THAT ARE GOING TO

RISE

UP AGAINST ISRAEL IN THE LAST

DAYS AND THEY ARE GOING TO

FIND AN ALLIANCE.

A LOT OF SCHOLARS DEBATED WHO

IS MEGA, LIBYA WE ALL KNOW,

GOMER, A LOT OF ARGUMENT

ABOUT

WHO IS GOMER NOT OF THE

BLACK

SEA.

BUT HERE THERE IS A NUMBER OF

NATIONS WHO ARE SURROUNDING

ISRAEL AND SAY WE WANT TO

WIPE

ISRAEL OFF THE MAP. WHEN YOU

SEE AN ALLIANCE BEING FORMED

FROM THOSE NATIONS SAYING WE

WANT TO TAKE ISRAEL, TAKE

BACK

JERUSALEM, ESSENTIALLY THAT

IS

A SIGN OF TIMES.

ARE WE THERE YET? NO. WE SEE

A LOT OF CHAOS AND

GOVERNMENTS

FALL, COULD THIS COME? YES.

SPEAKING OF REASON NO. 2.

THE TERROR GROUP KNOWN AS THE

ISLAMIC STATE OR ISIS.

SOME BIBLE SCHOLARS BELIEVE

THIS BLOOD THIRSTY ARMY IS A

SIGN THAT WE ARE IN THE END

TIMES.

I THINK IT'S A SIGN BUT NOT

THE ULTIMATE SIGN.

HERE IS THE REASON WHY I

THINK

IT'S A SIGN. DANIEL TALKED

ABOUT THE END OF THE AGE AND

A

LEADER WILL ARISE.

HERE IS WHAT THAT LEADER WILL

DO.

YOU WILL FIND IT IN DANIEL

CHAPTER 7 VERSE 25.

HE SHALL SPEAK POP US WORDS

OF

THE MOST KIND AND CHANGE

TIMES

IN LAW. NOW, LOOKING AT ISIS,

DO THEY WANT TO PERSECUTE THE

MOST? YES, THEY DO.

IF YOU ARE IN JEWISH

COUNTRIES, GET READY BECAUSE

THEY ARE GOING TO TRY TO

MURDER YOU.

IF YOU ARE A JEW LIVING IN

ISIS CONTROL LANDS, THEY ARE

GOING TO TRY TO MURDER YOU AS

WELL. THIS IS THE PERSECUTION

OF THE SAINTS OF THE MOST

HIGH

GOD. WHEN EVER YOU SEE A

PERSECUTION THAT LEADS TO

DEATH OF JEWS OR CHRISTIANS,

YOU ARE LOOKING AT WHAT THE

APOSTLE JOHN CALLED THE

SPIRIT

OF ANTI-CHRIST. I'M NOT

SAYING

IT IS THE ANTI-CHRIST.

THE ULTIMATE RISE OF A LEADER

I DON'T THINK WE ARE SEEING

THAT TODAY.

BUT, JOHN SAYS AND HE SAID IT

IN THE FIRST CENTURY, THE

SPIRIT OF ANTI-CHRIST IS

ALREADY HERE AND WHEN HE WAS

WRITING THAT, THERE WAS

SOMEONE WHO PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS WHO

REQUIRED THAT HIS SUBJECTS

BOW

DOWN AND WORSHIP HIM, AND IF

YOU DIDN'T DO THAT, YOU WOULD

BE EXECUTED.

SO THE APOSTLE JOHN SAID THE

SPIRIT OF ANTI-CHRIST IS

ALREADY LOOSE. SO WHEN YOU

LOOK AT LEADERS THROUGH THE

CENTURIES SENSE THAT FIRST

CENTURY THAT WANTED TO KILL

JEWS OR CHRISTIANS, YOU ARE

SEEING A SPIRIT OF EVIDENCE

OF

THE ANTI-CHRIST. IS IT

EVIDENCE OF THE LAST DAYS?

YES.

IS IT THE RISE OF THE

ANTI-CHRIST, THE FINAL EVIL

ONE WHO WILL TRY TO OVERTHROW

TIMES AND LAWS AND CHANGE

CALENDARS AND ALL OF THOSE

THINGS? NO.

BUT IT IS IN THAT SPIRIT.

WELL, MOVING ON TO THE NEXT

MODERN DAY PHENOMENON THAT'S

CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF BIBLE

EXPERTS.

ISRAEL'S REEMERGENCE.

AND THIS AND ALL THE SIGNS OF

OUR GENERATION THIS ONE IS

NO.

1.

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ISRAEL

IN

1948 AND THE REUNIFICATION OF

JERUSALEM IN 1967.

ON JUNE 7, 1967, IS WHEN

JERUSALEM WAS REUNIFIED.

ISRAELI SOLDIERS SAID

FAMOUSLY

THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS IN OUR

HANDS.

IT'S A FULFILLMENT OF

SPECIFIC

BIBLICAL PROPHECY BOTH FROM

JESUS AND FROM THE OLD

TESTAMENT PROPHETS.

I DON'T HAVE TIME TO MENTION

ALL OF THEM BUT HERE IS ONE

FROM ZACHARIAH, EIGHTH

CHAPTER, IT'S A SPECIFIC

PROPHECY THAT HAS BEEN

FULFILLED IN ALL TIME. 1 DAY

MEN AND WOMEN WILL WALK WITH

THEIR CANES AT THE CITY

SQUARE

AND BOYS AND GIRLS WILL PLAY.

ALL OF THIS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE

TO YOU NOW, A SMALL REMNANT

OF

GOD'S PEOPLE.

BUT IS POSSIBLE FOR ME SAYETH

THE LORD. WHEN YOU LOOK AT

THE

JEWISH PEOPLE YOU LOOK AT THE

SMALL REMNANT AFTER THE

BATTLE

AND ALL THE PERSECUTION OF

THE

ROMANS, THE SPREAD OF JEWS

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

THE HORRORS OF WORLD WAR II

TO

SEE WHAT THE BOYS AND GIRLS

PLAYING IN THE STREETS OF

JERUSALEM, TO SEE THE OLD

PEOPLE GATHER IN THE SQUARES.

IT IS A SPECIFIC FULFILLMENT

OF A SPECIFIC PROPHECY OF THE

END TIMES. ANOTHER POINTS TO

THE ISSUE OF MORALITY.

THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF AN

INCREASE OF IMMORTALITY IN

THE

LAST DAYS. YOU DON'T HAVE TO

BE RELIGIOUS TO SEE THAT'S

HAPPENING. HERE IS ONE FROM

ISAIAH CHAPTER 5, VERSUS

20-21. WHAT SORROW TO SAY FOR

THOSE THAT EVIL IS GOOD AND

GOOD IS EVIL, THAT DARK IS

LIGHT AND LIGHT IS DARK. THE

BITTER IS SWEET, IS SWEET AS

BITTER.

WHAT'S SORROW FOR THOSE WHO

ARE WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES

AND

THINK THEMSELVES SO CLEVER.

WE ARE SEEING THAT TODAY.

WHERE IF YOU STAND FOR A

BIBLICAL ORTHODOX VIEW OF

SEXUAL MORALITY, YOU ARE

CONSIDERED EVIL.

THAT HAS RAMPANT NOW IN OUR

CULTURE AND ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO

IS LOOK AT THE PROTEST IN THE

STREETS WITH WHAT'S GOING ON

WITH TRANSGENDER AND SAYING

THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS OKAY

AND

HETEROSEXUAL HAVING SEX IS

THAT A SIN -- ANYMORE AND

ADULTERY, THAT IT IS STILL

WRONG, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT

THE BEHAVIOR PATTERN, IT

SEEMS

TO BE RAMPANT.

THAT'S THE FULFILLMENT OF A

SPECIFY PROPHECY FROM JESUS.

IT'S IN MATTHEW 24.

THE ENTIRE CHAPTER IS ABOUT

THE END TIMES.

EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THIS

CHAPTER. MATTHEW 25.

SIN WILL BE RAMPANT

EVERYWHERE

AND THE LOVE WILL GROW COLD.

THAT'S WHEN YOU SEE RAMPANT,

PLEASE DON'T LOSE YOUR LOVE.

PLEASE LET YOUR LOVE BE

EXTENDED AND REALIZED.

THEY REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHAT

THEY DO.

SO PLEASE CONTINUE TO LOVE

THEM.

WELL, HERE IS THE LAST ONE

THE

ARTICLE POINTED OUT AND THIS

IS ONE I THINK AGAIN

CHRISTIANS REALLY NEED TO

KNOW

THIS ONE BECAUSE THIS IS THE

ONE YOU CAN ACTUALLY DO

SOMETHING ABOUT.

THE GOSPEL CONTINUES TO BE

SPREAD TO THE NATIONS.

HERE IT IS FROM MATTHEW

CHAPTER 24, SAME CHAPTER WE

JUST TALKED ABOUT.

THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM

WILL BE PREACHED IN THE WHOLE

WORLD AS A TESTIMONY TO ALL

THE NATIONS AND THEN THE END

WILL COME.

THAT VERSE IS IN BRASS OVER

THE HEADQUARTERS OF CBN.

THAT HAS BEEN OUR MISSION,

THAT HAS BEEN OUR GOAL.

THAT'S ONE PROPHECY WHERE GOD

HIMSELF HAS SAID, THIS IS THE

ONE I WANT YOU TO DO.

IT'S THE GREAT COMMISSION.

TAKE THE GOSPEL TO EVERY

LANGUAGE, EVERY TONGUE, EVERY

NATION.

LET'S DO THAT.

WHEN WE DO THAT, JESUS SAYS,

THEN THE END WILL COME.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE

HISTORY OF THE CHURCH, IT IS

TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE TO DO

THAT.

THE TRANSLATION THAT ARE

AVAILABLE TO US TODAY.

THE TECHNOLOGY WHETHER IT'S

SATELLITE TELEVISION, CABLE

TELEVISION, INTERNET,

SMARTPHONES, THE TECHNOLOGY

IS

LITERALLY THERE WHERE

EVERYONE

CAN HEAR THE GOOD NEWS NOT IN

SOME FOREIGN LANGUAGE, BUT IN

THEIR OWN LANGUAGE. WE ARE

GETTING READY TO FINISH THE

TASK OF TRANSLATING THE BIBLE.

WE ARE GETTING READY TO

FINISH

THE TASK OF PREACHING THE

GOSPEL TO THE WHOLE WORLD AND

IT'S SOMETHING WE CAN ALL BE

A

PART OF.

THIS IS WHAT PETER TALKED

ABOUT THE COMING OF THE GOOD

LORD. HOW WE CAN DO THAT IS

PREACH THE GOOD NEWS. IF YOU

WANT TO KNOW MORE, GO TO

FAITH

WIRE.COM AND HIT THE WORDS

SIGNS OF THE TIME.

A WOMAN AND HER WORK AND

Gordon: IF YOU ARE READY TO

GIVE UP ON YOUR MARRIAGE OR

IF

YOU THINK A DIFFERENT HUSBAND

OR WIFE IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR

PROBLEMS, OUR NEXT GUEST CAN

RELATE.

THAT'S BECAUSE VICKIE ROSE

HAD

EVERY REASON TO LEAVE HER

HUSBAND.

IN 1977 VICKIE MARRIED

BILLY ROSE. PART OWNER OF THE

NEW YORK YANKEES. THEY DINED

IN FINE RESTAURANTS AND

PARTIES WITH CELEBRITIES BUT

THERE WERE ISSUES.

I WOULD DRINK A LOT OF

VODKA.

I WAS SO UPSET WITH BILLY.

IN HER BOOK, EVERY REASON

TO LEAVE.

VICKIE SHARES WHAT CHANGED

THEIR LIVES AND WHY THEY

STAYED MARRIED IN THE MIDST

OF

A DIFFICULT RELATIONSHIP.

VICKIE, YOU ARE ONE OF MY

HEROES AND YOU ARE HER TO

TALK

ABOUT IT.

THANK YOU.

IT'S AN HONOR TO BE HERE.

LET'S GO BACK TO WHEN YOU

GOT MARRIED, WHAT WERE YOU

EXPECTING, WHAT WAS THE

DREAM.

THE PROBLEM WAS I WAS

EXPECTING SO MUCH THAT WAS

HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR MY

HUSBAND.

I WAS EXPECTING HIM TO BUY MY

HAPPINESS AND MY CHILDHOOD

HURTS.

WHY DID YOU DO THAT, DON'T

TALK NO FROM AN EXAMPLE, NO,

I

MARRIED A HUMAN BEING, NOT

PRINCE CHARMING. I THINK

BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE GO

INTO MARRIAGE WITH THE

EXPECTATION THAT NOW YOU ARE

DONE AND NOT UNDERSTANDING

AND

NOW THE WORK REALLY BEGINS.

SO

WHAT WAS IN YOUR MIND?

I HAD COME FROM A

BACKGROUND, A NON-NURTURING

PARENTS. MY MOTION -- MOM

DIED WHEN I WENT TO COLLEGE.

I HAD A LOT OF PAIN, GRIEF

THAT I HAD NEVER DEALT WITH.

AND I DON'T KNOW WHY I

THOUGHT

THIS, BUT I THOUGHT THAT

MARRIAGE WOULD MAKE IT ALL

OKAY.

YOU FOUND THE NURTURE.

I THOUGHT THAT BEING

MARRIED, HAVING THAT

POSITION,

BEING MARRIED TO A MAN I

THOUGHT WOULD TAKE CARE OF ME

AND FULFILL ALL MY NEEDS.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT

POSITION?

I THOUGHT BEING A MARRIED

WOMAN WOULD MAKE EVERYTHING

WORK OUT OKAY. I THINK I

THOUGHT IT WOULD GIVE ME

SECURITY.

WHEN MY MOM DIED, MY DAD

MARRIED A COUPLE YEARS LATER

AND I FELT MY FAMILY WAS GONE

AND EVERYTHING CHANGED AND I

HADN'T DEALT WITH IT IN A

HEALTHY WAY AND I THOUGHT

MARRIAGE WOULD FIX THAT.

YOU GUYS HAD MONEY.

WE DID.

WAS THAT PART OF THE

DREAM?

THAT WAS MY DREAM. I

ALWAYS

THOUGHT WHEN I GROW UP, I

WANT

TO BE RICH.

I WOULD SEE THE PICTURES OF

THE WOMEN IN THE MAGAZINES

AND

WITH THE LONG GOWNS AND I

THOUGHT THAT WAS SUCCESS.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU

TO

FIGURE OUT MONEY WASN'T GOING

TO FIX THE PROBLEM? I HAVE

HAD MONEY, I HAVE BEEN

WITHOUT

MONEY.

BETWEEN THE TWO, I WOULD

RATHER HAVE MONEY, BUT I KNOW

THAT IT DOESN'T SOLVE THE

PROBLEMS.

I DON'T THINK I LEARNED

THAT FOR A LONG TIME AFTER

THAT.

NOT JUST WHEN WE SEPARATED,

BUT COMING TO KNOW JESUS

CHRIST, TO LEARN THAT AND TO

REALLY BE WITHOUT AND TO FIND

OUT THERE WAS A LOT OF JOY IN

THAT TIME AND IT WAS A GOOD

LESSON.

IT WAS GOOD TO KNOW THAT.

OKAY, WHAT DID BILLY DO?

I

HEAR HE DID A LOT OF BAD

THINGS.

WHEN WE FIRST MET, HE

WORKED WITH HIS FATHER IN A

TEXTILE BUSINESS AND THEY

SUPPLIED DESIGNER CLOTHING

WITH BEAUTIFUL FABRICS MOSTLY

FROM ITALY.

SO HE WORKED THERE AND I WAS

WORKING AS A BUYER AT SAK'S.

SO I THOUGHT WE HAD ALL OF

THIS IN COMMON.

I HAD TO BE VERY CAREFUL

BECAUSE HE WAS SUPPLYING

PEOPLE I WAS BUYING FROM AND

THAT, YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW

WHERE

THAT LEADS. SO I THOUGHT I

WAS

MARRYING SOMEONE THAT WE

COMPLIMENTED EACH OTHER

BECAUSE WE WERE IN THE SAME

INDUSTRY.

AND SOMEWHERE AROUND AFTER

OUR

FIRST CHILD, BILLY ALWAYS

WANTED TO OWN A RESTAURANT.

THAT WAS HIS DREAM AND A

SPORTS BAR, IT WAS THE VERY

BEGINNINGS OF SPORTS BARS.

HE LEFT HIS DAD'S BUSINESS.

HIS DAD WAS MUCH OLDER AND IT

WAS A HUGE DECISION. HE

OPENED

THIS CLUB OF 6,000 SQUARE

FEET

SPACE IN MANHATTAN WHICH IS

UNUSUAL FOR MANHATTAN FOR A

RESTAURANT.

HE PUT THESE TELEVISIONS

EVERYWHERE AND WHERE YOU CAN

FOLLOW EVERY GAME AND HE HAD

COLLEGE FOOTBALL AND ALL

TYPES

OF STUFF.

I IMAGINE THAT TOOK HIM OUT

OF

THE HOME FOR EXTENDED PERIOD

OF TIMES.

YES.

IT WAS RIGHT BEFORE OUR

SECOND

CHILD WAS BORN.

I LOVED THAT HE HAD A DREAM

AND WANTED TO FOLLOW IT, BUT

AS HE GOT MORE INTO IT, IT

TURNED HIM AWAY FROM THE

FAMILY MORE AND MORE.

WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER THAT

NOT ONLY WAS HE WORKING ALL

THE TIME, BUT HE WAS ABUSING

DRUGS ALL THE TIME.

YEAH.

AND THEN OTHER WOMEN.

SO, I KNEW ABOUT THE

COCAINE, BUT HE HAD QUIT AND

STARTED BACK UP.

I WAS VERY NAIVE.

I DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT

ADDICTION OR THAT COCAINE WAS

ADDICTIVE AND I WAS CLINGING

TO MY MARRIAGE.

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE OTHER

WOMEN THING.

I JUST KNEW HE WOULD LEAVE AT

11 OR 12 AND NOT COME HOME

UNTIL 2:00 A.M. BECAUSE THE

RESTAURANT WAS GOING STRONG.

WHEN I ASKED HIM TO LEAVE IT

WAS BECAUSE OF THE DRUGS AND

HE HAD NO FAMILY LIFE

WHATSOEVER.

WHEN DID YOU ASK HIM TO

LEAVE?

IT WAS SOMETHING I WENT

OVER IN MY MIND FOR ABOUT 2-3

YEARS, MAYBE MORE.

AND WE WENT ON A VACATION 2

WEEKS BEFORE WE SEPARATED, HE

SAID HE WAS GOING TO DO IT ON

HIS OWN AND GET CLEANED UP.

WE WERE IN NORTH CAROLINA AND

I SAT ON THE BEACH WITH

FAMILIES ALL AROUND AND THERE

WERE FAMILIES PLAYING WITH

THEIR KIDS AND THERE WERE

TEARS POURING DOWN MY FACE

WONDERING WHY MY LIFE

COULDN'T

BE LIKE THAT AND MY HUSBAND

WITH AN IN A HOTEL ROOM

TRYING

TO KICK THE ADDICTION OF

COCAINE.

ADDICTION IS AWFUL. WE GOT

BACK TO NEW YORK.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE

BREAKING

POINT, BUT MAYBE IT WAS THAT

DAY ON THE BEACH WHERE

SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE.

YOU DIDN'T DIVORCE.

YOU SEPARATED FOR A LONG

TIME,

5 YEARS AND YOU DIDN'T

DIVORCE.

RIGHT.

WHY?

PART OF IT WAS BENEFICIAL

NOT TO FINANCIALLY.

PART OF IT I WAS HOPING AND

FOR HIM, HE HAD 1 FOOT IN

EACH

WORLD.

DID YOU HATE HIM?

I HATED HIM.

I WANTED HIM IT WAS

CHANGING.

BABYSITTER'S WERE COMING AND

GOING. ONE BABY SITTER LEFT

MY

CHILD OUT ON THE STREET IN A

STROLLER.

ONE BABY SITTER GAVE MY CHILD

TOO MUCH MEDICATION. THERE

WAS

SO MUCH HAPPENING AND I WAS

JUST TRYING TO KEEP MY HEAD

ABOVE WATER.

AND THEN YOU CHANGED.

HOW DID THAT HAPPEN.

THERE WAS A BLACK TIE AND YOU

SAID, GREAT, I CAN GET OUT OF

THE HOUSE AND GET MY LIFE

BACK.

I WENT TO A BLACK TIE THAT

NIGHT AND I LEARNED THAT GOD

LOVED ME AND I LEARNED THAT

JESUS CHRIST WAS MY ONLY

PROVISION AND LET MY WORRY

AND

FEAR AND SELF-CONTROL OVER MY

OWN LIFE THAT I QUALIFIED AS

A

SINNER AND THAT JESUS CHRIST

WAS THE SOLUTION TO THAT AND

I

CAN SIMPLY RECEIVE HIM AND

ASK

HIM TO TAKE OVER MY LIFE AND

ALL MY SINS WOULD BE FORGIVEN

AND HE CREATED ME TO BE THE

PERSON HE WANTED ME TO.

THAT NIGHT, THEY ASKED ME FOR

THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY AND

ASK GOD TO BE MY LORD AND

SAVIOR.

THAT WAS IT.

THERE WAS A CARD AND IT HAD

THREE THINGS TO CHECK, I'M

INTERESTED IN MORE

INFORMATION

AND INTERESTED IN RECEIVING

JESUS CHRIST AND I CHECKED

THEM ALL. I LEFT.

THE HOTEL.

THEY INVITED US TO BIBLE

STUDY.

THE NEXT DAY I WAS IN BIBLE

STUDY AND I LEARNED THAT GOD

WAS THE TRUTH AND JESUS WAS

THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE

LIGHT.

I STARTED TO SEE THAT

EMPTINESS AND THAT FEAR

STARTED TO ABATE AND I FELT

THAT PEACE.

I BET THAT WAS A BIG

RELIEF.

IT WAS A BIG RELIEF.

I HAD THAT JOY AGAIN.

I WAS GRATEFUL FOR THE THINGS

I HAD AND THE CLOTHES IN MY

CLOSET AND I STARTED TO BE

GRATEFUL.

DID YOU THINK YOU WOULD

HAVE THAT JOY AGAIN?

NO.

WHEN YOU WERE ON THAT

BEACH?

NO.

PART OF IT WAS IF HE WOULD

GET

OFF DRUGS, EVERYTHING WOULD

BE

OKAY. PART OF IT WAS IT

WASN'T

ENOUGH AND NOTHING IS ENOUGH

WITHOUT CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE.

HE ALONE IS THE ONE WHO IS

ENOUGH AND FILLS THAT

EMPTINESS AND PROMISES TO

NEVER LEAVE OR FOR SAKE ME

AND

PROMISES TO BE WITH ME ALWAYS

UNTIL THE END OF THE AGE AND

HE'S THE ONE THAT FULFILLS

THAT MEETING IN MY HEART,

JESUS AND JESUS ALONE.

LET'S GET BACK TO YOUR

MARRIAGE. HERE YOU ARE, NEW

CHRISTIAN, GOING TO BIBLE

STUDY HAVING ALL OF THIS

TRANSFORMATION, BUT IT STILL

TOOK YOUR CHILDREN TO SAY,

LET'S PRAY FOR DADDY.

YES.

I WANT TO KNOW PART OF MY

HUSBAND AND I WANTED MY

FAMILY

BACK TOGETHER. WHEN THE

CHILDREN SAID, AND THEY WERE

YOUNG, BY THEN 3 1/2 AND 6.

THEY SAID, LET'S PRAY FOR

DADDY.

I THOUGHT, I WOULD RATHER

KILL

HIM THAN PRAY FOR HIM, BUT

THANKFULLY I DIDN'T SAY THAT.

BUT I AGREED. THEY STARTED TO

PRAY THAT DADDY WOULD COME TO

KNOW JESUS EVERY MORNING AT

BREAKFAST AND EVERY NIGHT AS

A

TUCKED THEM INTO BED AND

EVERY

NIGHT I WOULD ASK IN BIBLE

STUDY AND THEN I STARTED TO

CALL THE "700 CLUB" ASKING

THEM TO PRAY TO HAVE BILL

COME

HOME. THEN AS I STARTED TO

PRAY, MY HEART CHANGED AND I

STARTED TO HAVE COMPASSION

FOR

MY HUSBAND AND FOUND THAT HE

NEEDED JUST LIKE I DID.

SO, WE PRAYED.

DID YOU EVER COME TO THE

KNOWLEDGE THAT HE COULDN'T

CONTROL HIS ADDICTION?

NO.

THAT IT WASN'T HIS FAULT?

NOT BACK THEN.

I UNDERSTAND NOW THAT

ADDICTION IS A SICKNESS, A

DISEASE AND SOMETHING WE

DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

AND THAT GOD ALONE KNOWS THAT

I'M NOT THE JUDGE ANYMORE.

IT'S TAKEN ME A LONG TIME.

WAS THAT HARD FOR YOU TO

DO?

YES.

YOU WANTED, ALL THE THINGS

HE DID BAD. IT'S HARD TO

FORGIVE WHEN WE ARE RIGHT.

YEAH.

AND THAT SENSE THAT WE ARE

RIGHTEOUS AND HE'S NOT.

WHICH IS NOT TRUE.

WE ARE ALL, ALL OUR

RIGHTEOUSNESS IS LIKE FILTHY

RAGS.

YOU KNOW, SO I HAVE BEEN A

VERY CRITICAL PERSON AND ONLY

IN THE LAST FEW YEARS HAS GOD

REALLY WORKED ON THAT A LOT.

WE ARE ALL WORKS IN

PROGRESS. COMING TO THE

REALIZATION JUDGE NOT AND YOU

WILL NOT BE JUDGED.

WE ALL HAVE OUR CONCEPTION OF

RELIGION AND WHAT SHOULD BE

RIGHT AND THAT WE CARRY THAT.

IT'S THAT SELF

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

IT WILL KILL YOU.

YEAH, IT'S SIN.

IT WILL KILL RELATIONSHIPS.

IT WILL KILL A

RELATIONSHIP. MY HUSBAND IS A

VERY PATIENT MAN, THANKFULLY.

HOW LONG DID YOU PRAY?

WE PRAYED FOR 3 YEARS.

AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED?

WELL, I HAD GONE BACK TO

WORK TO NOW SUPPORT US NOW

THAT WE WERE LIVING

SEPARATELY

AND I STARTED READING THE

BIBLE AT LUNCH HOUR AND I

STARTED READING MATTHEW

CHAPTER 6 ABOUT NOT WORRYING

ABOUT WHAT I WOULD WEAR AND

THEN HOW MUCH I WAS EARNING

AND TO GET TO AND FROM WORK,

I

REALIZED I HAD THIS MUCH.

YOU WERE ON YOUR WAY TO

WORK.

I ALWAYS WANTED MORE.

SO AFTER I ADDED THAT UP I

STARTED PRAYING AND THE

PEOPLE

AT BIBLE STUDY APPROACHED ME

AT THE SAME TIME AND ASKED ME

IF I WOULD COME WORK THERE IN

THE OFFICE.

PART-TIME DURING MY

CHILDREN'S

SCHOOL HOURS.

IT WAS LIKE WOW, I WANTED TO

BE HOME WITH THEM AND BE MOM

AND NOT LEE -- LEAVE THEM IN

A BABYSITTER'S HANDS.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO

WOMEN

WHO ARE GOING THROUGH WHAT

YOU

WENT THROUGH?

I WOULD SAY BE IN GOD'S

WORD EVERY SINGLE DAY AND

SEEK

GOD FIRST AND ASK HIM WHAT HE

WANTS YOU TO DO AND BE

WILLING

TO SURRENDER IT ALL.

IF YOU WANT VICKIE'S BOOK

IT'S CALLED "EVERY REASON TO

LEAVE".

SOLD WHERE EVERY BOOK IS

SOLD.

IN THE LAST DAYS, I WILL POUR

OUT MY SPIRIT ON ALL PEOPLE.
