The 700 Club - March 10, 2017

A crackdown on pro-lifers in France where speaking the truth could land you in jail. Plus, an accident at 70mph. One biker clings to life while his friends cling to a promise. Read Transcript


Wendy: TODAY...A

CRACKDOWN ON PRO-LIFERS IN

FRANCE, WHERE SPEAKING THE

TRUTH COULD LAND YOU IN

JAIL.

IT MEANS THAT THE

GOVERNMENT IS DECIDING

WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS

WRONG.

Wendy: THEN...AN

ACCIDENT AT 70 MILES PER

HOUR LEAVES ONE BIKER

CLINGING TO LIFE.

IT IS PROBABLY THE

WORST SITUATION I HAVE

EVER SEEN.

Wendy: WHILE HIS

FRIENDS CLING TO A

PROMISE.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

I WANT YOU TO TELL THEM

THAT CLINT WILL RECOVER

ALL.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS HALF

WAY THROUGH HIS FIRST 100

DAYS.

AND HE HAS FILLED SOME OF

HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES

ALREADY.

HE HAS GOTTEN STARTED ON

HIS MAJOR INITIATIVES FOR

THIS YEAR, INCLUDING

REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBAMACARE AND TAX REFORM.

Terry: WHITE HOUSE

CORRESPONDENT JENNIFER

WISHON HAS THIS LOOK AT

TRUMP'S HISTORIC

PRESIDENCY SO FAR AND AT

THE ROAD AHEAD.

Jennifer: IN HIS

FIRST 50 DAYS AS THE MOST

POWERFUL MAN ON EARTH,

AMERICA'S OLDEST PRESIDENT

TO ASSUME THE OFFICE, IS

MOVING AT WARP SPEED.

HE HAS SIGNED HIS NAME TO

MORE THAN 30 EXECUTIVE

ORDERS, WELCOMED FOUR

WORLD LEADERS FOR OFFICIAL

WHITE HOUSE VISITS, AND TO

BOTH THE DELIGHT OF HIS

SUPPORTERS AND DISTURBANCE

OF SOME, HE HAS TWEETED

OVER 250 TIMES.

President Trump: I

CAN FINALLY SAY I'M A

POLITICIAN.

I'M A POLITICIAN.

> YOU REMEMBER ISIS

SAID, WE ARE GOING TO

INFILTRATE THE UNITED

STATES AND OTHER COUNTRIES

THROUGH THE MIGRATION.

AND THEN WE'RE NOT ALLOWED

TO BE TOUGH ON THE PEOPLE

COMING IN?

Jennifer: DESPITE A

ROUGH ROLLOUT ON HIS ORDER

ON IMMIGRATION, HE QUICKLY

CHECKED OFF HIS CAMPAIGN

PROMISES, INCLUDING SOME

THAT SENT EVANGELICALS TO

THE POLLS.

HE REVERSED POLICY THAT

SENT TAX DOLLARS TO GROUPS

PROVIDING ABORTIONS

OVERSEAS, AND ROLLED OUT A

PLAN TO REPEAL AND REPLACE

OBAMACARE.

PLUS, HE IS OVERSEEING A

GROWING ECONOMY.

AND WALL STREET HAS

ENJOYED A VERY SHARP RALLY

SINCE TRUMP TOOK OFFICE.

BUT MUCH OF THIS

COMPETENCE IS BASED ON

PROMISES THE PRESIDENT HAS

MADE BUT HASN'T YET

DELIVERED ON, LIKE A

DRASTIC REDUCTION IN

FEDERAL REGULATIONS THAT

BUSINESSES SAY STIFLE

ECONOMIC GROWTH AND TAX

CUTS ON BOTH BUSINESSES

AND INDIVIDUALS.

President Trump:

WE'RE GOING TO REDUCE

TAXES FOR COMPANIES AND

FOR PEOPLE.

AND I CAN USE THE WORD,

AGAIN, "MASSIVELY," IT IS

GOING TO BE A BIG TAX

CULT.

THE BIGGEST SINCE REAGAN,

MAYBE BIGGER THAN REAGAN.

Jennifer: HE HAS

ORDERED TWO REGULATIONS TO

BE REPEALED FOR EVERY NEW

ONE.

TRUMP IS OFTEN AT ODDS

WITH THE MEDIA.

STILL 50 DAYS IN, IT

REMAINS STANDING-ROOM-ONLY

IN THE PRESS BRIEFING ROOM

FOR THE MUST-SEE-TV DAILY

BRIEFING.

HE IS NOT A CANNED POLL

POLITICIAN WHO WILL GIVE

THE SAME SPEECHES OVER AND

OVER AGAIN.

President Trump: SO

FAR HE IS MUCH MORE

ACCESSIBLE THAN AMERICA'S

LAST PRESIDENT.

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH CBN

NEWS, THE PRESIDENT SAYS

HE IS RELYING ONED GOD NOW

MORE THAN EVER.

President Trump: I'VE

ALWAYS FELT THE NEED TO

PRAY, AND YOU KNOW THAT.

SO I WOULD SAY THAT THE

OFFICE IS SO POWERFUL THAT

YOU NEED GOD EVEN MORE.

[APPLAUSE]

Jennifer: HIS FIRST

JOINT ADDRESS TO CONGRESS

WAS A COUP.

NOW HE IS WORKING TO BUILD

ON THAT MOMENTUM AS HE

PRESSES TOWARDS HIS FIRST

100 DAYS.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: WELL, IF

THERE IS EVER A TIME FOR

PRAYER FOR OUR PRESIDENT,

IT'S NOW.

AND HALF OF US VOTED FOR

HIM, AND HALF OF US VOTED

AGAINST HIM.

BUT WE ALL NEED TO COME

TOGETHER.

WE NEED TO REALIZE WE'RE

ONE NATION UNDER GOD,

INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

AND LET'S PRAY FOR HIM.

THE BIBLE COMMANDS US TO

PRAY FOR LEADERSHIP.

AND LET'S PRAY FOR HIM

BECAUSE WE FACE A LOT OF

CHALLENGES.

> WELL, PRESIDENT TRUMP

IS ALSO FACING AN

IMPORTANT CHALLENGE FOR A

SPECIFIC GROUP OF ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS HERE IN THE

U.S.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

JOHN?

John: THANKS, GORDON.

LAST MONTH THE PRESIDENT

SAID HE IS GOING TO SHOW,

QUOTE, "GREAT HEART" IN

CREATING A LEGAL PATH FOR

IMMIGRANTS KNOWN AS

DREAMERS.

THEY ARE YOUNG ADULTS WHO

WERE BROUGHT TO THE UNITED

STATES ILLEGALLY AS

CHILDREN, AND MORE THAN A

MILLION OF THEM ARE LIVING

AND WORKING HERE AND OFTEN

FACE AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE.

HEATHER SELLS CAUGHT UP

WITH TWO SISTERS WHO ARE

PRAYING PRESIDENT TRUMP

COMES THROUGH ON HIS

CAMPAIGN PROMISE.

IT CAN BE VERY, VERY

STRESSFUL.

Heather: DANIELLE

GONZALES IS WAITING ON THE

GOVERNMENT TO RENEW HER

WORK PERMIT.

IT EXPIRES IN THREE WEEKS.

I THINK THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND HOW PRESSING IT

IS, THAT IT IS LITERALLY

OUR LIVES AT STAKE.

Heather: SHE AND HER

SISTER, ANDREA, ARE BOTH

DREAMERS.

WHEN THEY WERE CHILDREN,

THEIR FAMILY FLED FOOD

SHORTAGES AND VIOLENCE IN

VENEZUELA.

THEIR FATHER, A SOUTHERN

BAPTIST PREACHER HAD A

WORKER'S VISA.

WE FOUND OUT THAT OUR

LAWYER WHO WAS WORKING ON

OUR PAPERS HAD DROPPED THE

BALL AND DIDN'T REAPPLY

FOR OUR CURRENT STATUS.

Heather: THAT MISTAKE

MEANT THEY HAD ILLEGAL

STATUS, AND THAT MEANT NO

FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE

OR OPPORTUNITIES TO

LEGALLY WORK.

REVEREND TONY SUAREZ LEADS

THE SPANISH LEADERSHIP

CONFERENCE AND IS FIGHTING

FOR THE DREAMERS.

EVERYONE THAT IS IN THE

COUNTRY, IN THIS LIMBO

STATUS OF BEING

UNDOCUMENTED, THESE ARE

WHAT I WOULD REALLY LOOK

AT AS VICTIMS OF THE

SITUATION.

IT WAS NOT THEIR CHOICE TO

COME.

Heather: THE GONZALES

SISTERS AND OTHER DREAMERS

HAVE SINCE BEEN ABLE TO

APPLY FOR WORK PERMITS

UNDER WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE

DOCA PROGRAM, WHICH

STARTED FOUR YEARS AGO.

BUT THE PERMITS ONLY LAST

TWO YEARS, AND THEY'RE NOT

GUARANTEED.

BOTH SISTERS RECENTLY

REAPPLIED, AND ANDREA

RECEIVED HER, BUT DANIELLE

HAS NOT.

IF SHE DOESN'T RECEIVE HER

PERMIT, SHE WILL LOSE HER

ENGINEERING SCHOLARSHIP AT

THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA

AND MAY HAVE TO GO BACK TO

VENEZUELA.

I REALLY DON'T HAVE A

PLAN "B."

I DON'T KNOW IF MY

ENGINEERING DEGREE FROM

HERE WILL DO ANYTHING,

THAT I COULD BE AN

ENGINEER IN VENEZUELA.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW

ENGINEERING TERMS IN

SPANISH, HONESTLY.

Jennifer: MANY

BELIEVE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WILL TACKLE

IMMIGRATION REFORM THIS

YEAR AND DO SOMETHING FOR

THE DREAMERS.

BUT EVEN THE PRESIDENT

ADMITS HE IS STRUGGLING.

President Trump: IT

IS A VERY, VERY TOUGH

SUBJECT.

WE'RE GOING TO DEAL WITH

DOCA WITH HEART.

I HAVE TO DEAL WITH A LOT

OF POLITICIANS, DON'T

FORGET.

Reporter: ANDREA AND

DANIELLE SAY ULTIMATELY

THEY ARE NOT WAITING ON

THE PRESIDENT.

THEY'RE RELYING ON THE

LORD.

I DON'T THINK I WOULD

HAVE PULLED THROUGH ANY OF

THIS IF IT WASN'T FOR MY

FAITH.

IF IT WASN'T FOR BELIEVING

IN A GOD THAT HAS PURPOSE

IN THE TRAGEDY AND THE

BEAUTY AND THE GOODNESS IN

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO

US.

Jennifer: REPORTING

IN VIRGINIA BEACH, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

John: AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP ALSO FACES A LONG

LIST OF GROWING FOREIGN

POLICY CHALLENGES, FROM

THE MIDDLE EAST TO ASIA.

AND AS GEORGE THOMAS

REPORTS, THE LATEST

MISSILE TESTS BY NORTH

KOREA AND IRAN ARE ONLY

COMPLICATING AND MAKING

MATTERS WORSE.

George: COMING SOON

TO A THEATER IN IRAN:

BATTLE OF THE PERSIAN GULF

2.

THE NEW ANIMATED FILM BY

AN IRANIAN DIRECTOR

DEPICTS AN EPIC BATTLE

BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES

AND IRAN.

IN ONE SCENE AN IRANIAN

OFFICER LAUNCHES A MISSILE

AT A U.S. NAVY SHIP IN THE

PERSIAN GULF.

SECONDS LATER, THE VESSEL

EXPLODES INTO A HUGE BALL

OF FIRE, SINKING IT.

THE FILM'S DIRECTOR TOLD

REUTERS, "I HOPE HOW THE

FILM SHOWS TRUMP HOW THE

AMERICAN SOLDIERS WILL

FACE A HUMILIATING DEFEAT

IF THEY ATTACK IRAN."

THE MOVIE IS ANOTHER

REMINDER OF TENSIONS THAT

ARE BREWING IN THE REGION.

IRAN HAS BEEN CONDUCTING

MILITARY TESTS,

SUCCESSFULLY TESTING A

NAVAL MISSILE THAT CAN BE

USED AGAINST TARGETS SOME

100 MILES AWAY, TARGETS

THAT INCLUDE U.S. SHIPS.

AND ANOTHER ROGUE COUNTRY,

NORTH KOREA, ALSO

CONTINUES TO TEST THE NEW

ADMINISTRATION IN

WASHINGTON.

THE COMMUNIST REGIME

CARRIED OUT ITS FIFTH

NUCLEAR TEST AND LAUNCHED

SEVERAL MISSILES IN RECENT

DAYS.

THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY

NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND EVERY

COUNTRY IS IN DANGER FROM

THE ACTIONS OF NORTH

KOREA.

George: ADDING TO THE

PENINSULA'S POLITICAL

INSTABILITY, SOUTH KOREA,

A STRONG U.S. ALLY AND KEY

TRADING PARTNER, REMOVED

ITS PRESIDENT FROM POWER

FOLLOWING CORRUPTION

CHARGES.

PROTESTS HAVE ERUPTED ON

THE STREETS OF SEOUL AS

THE COUNTRY PREPARES TO

ELECT A NEW LEADER.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

John: GORDON, THESE

ARE SOME SERIOUS FOREIGN

POLICY CHALLENGES WITH

REALLY NO EASY SOLUTIONS.

Gordon: ONCE AGAIN, A

REAL REASON TO PRAY.

WHEN WE LOOK AT THE

SITUATION IN NORTH KOREA,

POLITICAL INSTABILITY NOW

IN SOUTH KOREA -- WHEN YOU

LOOK AT THE SITUATION WITH

IRAN, YOU LOOK AT THE

SITUATION WITH TERRORISM,

ISIS, WE NEED TO PRAY.

AND WE NEED TO PRAY FOR

OUR PRESIDENT, FOR OUR

MILITARY, FOR OUR MILITARY

LEADERS, FOR OUR SENATORS,

FOR OUR REPRESENTATIVES IN

CONGRESS, FOR OUR COURTS.

NOW IS THE TIME FOR

AMERICA TO PRAY.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, UP NEXT,

SPEAKING THE TRUTH MAY

SOON GET YOU ARRESTED IF

YOU'RE PRO-LIFE AND LIVING

IN FRANCE.

EXPOSING THE POTENTIAL

FALLOUT FROM A NEW LAW,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: WELL, MEMBERS

OF THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT

IN FRANCE COULD SOON FACE

A SERIOUS CRACKDOWN, AND

THAT THREAT IS COMING FROM

THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THE FRENCH

PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT FACES

BEING CRIPPLED BY A LAW

THAT WOULD CRIMINALIZE ANY

WEBSITE THAT TRIES TO

CONVINCE A WOMAN NOT TO

HAVE AN ABORTION.

THEY COULD GET TWO YEARS

IN PRISON AND A $31,000

FINE.

WHILE IT HAS PASSED THE

SENATE AND NATIONAL

ASSEMBLY, IT IS NOT LAW

YET.

IT IS BEING REVIEWED BY

FRANCE'S HIGHEST LEGAL

BODY, THE CONSTITUTIONAL

COUNCIL.

THIS ISN'T THE UNITED

STATES, WHERE THE PRO-LIFE

MOVEMENT IS A MAJOR

POLITICAL FORCE.

IF PASSED, AS MANY EXPECT,

THE LAW WILL MAKE AN

ALREADY WEAK ANTI-ABORTION

MOVEMENT IN FRANCE EVEN

WEAKER.

THE GOVERNMENT SAYS IT IS

TRYING TO STOP FAKE NEWS

ABOUT ABORTION.

PRO-LIFE LEADERS CALL IT

CENSORSHIP OF THEIR VIEWS,

AND THEY FEEL LIKE THEIR

MOVEMENT IS BEING

STRANGLED.

Through Translator:

THIS LAW HAS THE RISK OF

SUFFOCATING THE PRO-LIFE

MOVEMENT.

Reporter: JEAN-MARIE

IS PRESIDENT OF THE

FOUNDATION, ONE OF

FRANCE'S LEADING PRO-LIFE

ORGANIZATIONS.

Through Translator:

THIS NEW LAW IS EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS BECAUSE IT

LIMITS THE FREEDOM OF

EXPRESSION.

FIRST IT MEANS THAT THE

GOVERNMENT IS DECIDING

WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS

WRONG.

WHAT WE CAN TELL ABOUT

ABORTION AND WHAT WE

CANNOT.

Reporter: THE LAW

TARGETS WORDS AND MESSAGES

THAT MIGHT DETER,

DISSUADE, OR HINDER WOMEN

FROM HAVING AN ABORTION.

THIS LAW GOES PRETTY

FAR.

SINCE THE MERE FACT OF

SAYING THE TRUTH COULD

DISCOURAGE A WOMAN FROM

HAVING AN ABORTION,

SHOWING WHAT AN ABORTION

IS TECHNICALLY A

DETERRENT.

Reporter: AMERICAN

PRO-LIFE WEBSITES LIKE

THESE WOULD BE ILLEGAL, AS

WOULD THESE WEBSITE PAGES

SHOWN TO US.

OPPONENTS OF THE PROPOSED

LAW APPEAL TO FRANCE'S

CONSTITUTIONAL COUNCIL

BECAUSE THE LAW WOULD

RESTRICT FREEDOM OF

SPEECH.

WHILE THAT ARGUMENT WOULD

PROBABLY WORK IN THE

UNITED STATES, IT MAY NOT

WORK IN FRANCE, WHERE

PRO-LIFE FORCES LOST THE

ABORTION DEBATE LONG AGO.

FRANCE LEGALIZED ABORTION

IN 1975, AND IS TODAY ONE

OF THE MOST PROABORTION

NATIONS IN EUROPE.

WITH MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS

SAYING IN ONE POLL THAT A

WOMAN SHOULD BE ABLE TO

HAVE AN ABORTION WHENEVER

SHE WANTS.

JOURNALIST ELIZABETH SAYS

THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT IS

SEEN BY THE GOVERNMENT AS

DENYING WOMAN THE HUMAN

RIGHT TO ABORTION.

THE VIEW OF THE FRENCH

IS AS LONG AS WOMEN ARE

ENTITLED TO HAVE

ABORTIONS, YOU CANNOT HAVE

PROPAGANDA THAT WOULD

PREVENT THEM FROM MAKING

AN INFORMED CHOICE ABOUT

EXERCISING THAT RIGHT.

Reporter: IN FRANCE,

96% OF DOWN SYNDROME

BABIES ARE ABORTED.

LAST YEAR THE FRENCH

GOVERNMENT BANNED THIS AD

SHOWING SMILING, HAPPY,

DOWN SYNDROME CHILDREN.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: SHE SAYS

THE GOVERNMENT SEES

ABORTION AS SOCIAL

PROGRESS, ALONG WITH

EUTHANASIA, GAY RIGHTS,

AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

THE FRENCH HAVEN'T GONE

ALONG WITH ALL OF IT.

FOUR MILLION MARCHED

AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE AND

GAY ADOPTION BEFORE LOSING

THE BATTLE.

FRANCE IS STILL A MAJORITY

CATHOLIC COUNTRY.

BUT THERE HAS NOT BEEN THE

SAME OUTRAGE OVER THIS

LAW, AND PASSAGE COULD

COME SOON, MAKING IT EVEN

HARDER TO PROTECT THE

UNBORN IN FRANCE.

Through Translator: A

FEW CONSTRAINTS THAT WERE

SHAPING THE LAW ON

ABORTION ARE NOW VOID.

THIS MEANS THAT

ORGANIZATIONS, SUCH AS

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, WHICH

IS PUBLICLY FUNDED, AND

THE GOVERNMENT HAS THE

MONOPOLY ON TELLING THE

TRUTH, BUT ARE IN FACT

TELLING LIES ABOUT

ABORTION.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, PARIS.

Gordon: IF YOU THINK

THAT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE,

THINK AGAIN.

FRANCE IS A CATHOLIC

COUNTRY, DOING THIS, AND

THEN SAYING WE DON'T WANT

FREE SPEECH.

WE DON'T WANT A VIGOROUS

DEBATE.

WE DON'T WANT TO SHOW

PICTURES FROM WITHIN THE

WOMB, WITH THESE 3D

CAMERAS.

WE DON'T WANT TO SHOW THE

EFFECTS OF ABORTION.

WE DON'T WANT TO SHOW EVEN

HAPPY PICTURES OF CHILDREN

THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

ABORTED BUT THEIR PARENTS

MADE THE BRAVE DECISION

THAT WE'RE GOING TO GO

AHEAD WITH THIS PREGNANCY.

NOW, IF YOU THINK IT CAN'T

HAPPEN HERE, PLEASE THINK

AGAIN.

WE NEED, MORE THAN EVER,

TO STAND UP FOR OUR

RIGHTS, THAT FREE SPEECH,

VIGOROUS DEBATE OF THESE

ISSUES, IS CORE AND

FUNDAMENTAL TO A

DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A

BIKER CRASHES AND JUST

BARELY CLINGS TO LIFE.

HE WAS BLEEDING AND HAD

ALL OF THESE I.V.s

EVERYWHERE.

HE WAS ON A VENTILATOR.

AND HE WAS BLEEDING OUT OF

HIS EARS.

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY

DID NOT EXPECT HIM TO

SURVIVE.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

MAN MAKES A MIRACULOUS

COMEBACK, AFTER THIS.

Terry: WERE WHEN WHEN ANDREA

ARRIVED AT THE HOSPITAL

TRAUMA CENTER, SHE DIDN'T

KNOW QUITE WHAT TO EXPECT.

ALL SHE KNEW WAS HER

HUSBAND, CLINT, CRASHED ON

A MOTORCYCLE, BUT NOTHING

COULD HAVE PREPARED HER

FOR WHAT SHE SAW.

Reporter: DURING A

MOTORCYCLE RIDE IN JUNE OF

2006, CLINT MAYFIELD'S

JACKET SLIPPED OFF THE

BACK OF HIS BIKE AND GOT

CAUGHT IN THE CHAIN.

HE WAS THROWN OFF HIS

BIKE, LANDING HEAD-FIRST

ON THE ASPHALT.

LATER THAT NIGHT, CLINT'S

WIFE, ANDREA, GOT A PHONE

CALL ABOUT THE ACCIDENT.

I WAS INSTANTLY

WORRIED, SHOCKED, AND JUST

KIND OF STUNNED.

I DIDN'T KNOW ANY DETAILS.

SO IT WAS REALLY SCARY.

Reporter: EMERGENCY

RESPONDERS CALLED FOR A

LIFE FLIGHT TO A TRAUMA

CENTER IN TEXAS.

THEIR PASTOR WAS ALSO

CONTACTED AND DROVE TO THE

HOSPITAL.

WE WERE PRAYING AS WE

DROVE.

AND I WAS JUST TRYING TO

HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD

ABOUT THE SITUATION.

BECAUSE I KNEW I WOULD BE

WALKING INTO A VERY

DIFFICULT SITUATION AND I

WANTED TO BE AN

ENCOURAGEMENT TO THEM.

AND THE LORD SPOKE TO ME.

HE SAID, WHEN YOU GET TO

THE HOSPITAL, I WANT YOU

TO TELL THEM THAT CLINT

WILL RECOVER ALL.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT'S

HAPPENED HERE.

DON'T LOOK AT THE

SITUATION.

DON'T LOOK AT THE

CIRCUMSTANCES.

DON'T PUT TOO MUCH STOCK

IN WHAT THE PROGNOSIS IS.

CLINT IS GOING TO RECOVER

ALL.

Reporter: CLINT HAD

SEVERELY DAMAGED THE

FRONTAL AND TEMPORAL LOBES

OF HIS BRAIN AND WAS IN A

COMA.

DOCTORS SAID IF HE

SURVIVED, HE MAY NEED

FULL-TIME CARE FOR THE

REST OF HIS LIFE.

HE WAS JUST BLEEDING

AND HAD ALL THESE I.V.s

EVERYWHERE.

AND HE WAS ON A

VENTILATOR.

AND HE WAS BLEEDING OUT OF

HIS EARS.

IT WAS PROBABLY THE

WORST SITUATION I HAD EVER

SEEN.

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY DID

NOT EXPECT HIM TO SU SURVIVE.

Reporter: THEIR

FAMILY GATHERED IN PRAYER

AT THE HOSPITAL, AND WORD

WENT OUT TO THEIR CHURCH

COMMUNITY TO PRAY FOR

CLINT'S SURVIVAL.

WHENEVER WE FELT LIKE,

YOU KNOW, WE NEEDED TO

PRAY, WE WOULD.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEEDED TO

DO TO STAY FOCUSED AND

REMIND OURSELVES ABOUT,

YOU KNOW, OUR PROMISE THAT

HE WAS GOING TO BE HEALED,

AND THAT WE JUST HAD TO

HAVE PATIENCE, EVEN THOUGH

EVERYTHING LOOKED REALLY

BAD, TO STAY HOPEFUL.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

PROGNOSIS, THEY CONTINUED

TO WAIT AND PRAY FOR A

MIRACLE.

I KNOW WHAT I KNOW, BUT

I ALSO KNOW THAT ANYTHING

IS POSSIBLE WITH GOD.

THEY EXHIBITED FAITH

THROUGH THIS ENTIRE

SITUATION.

THE LIKES OF WHICH I HAVE

RARELY SEEN IN 35 YEARS OF

PASTORING.

THERE WAS JUST TOO MUCH

PRAYER GOING OUT FOR HIM

TO NOT COME OUT OF THIS.

Reporter: ANDREA

CLUNG TO THE WORD OF GOD

FOR HOPE.

CHURCH MEMBERS GAVE HER

CARDS WITH BIBLE VERSES

ABOUT GOD'S POWER TO HEAL

AND RESTORE.

I WOULD READ THEM TO

MYSELF.

I WOULD READ THEM TO

CLINT.

I WOULD JUST KIND OF

WHISPER THEM TO HIM IN HIS

EAR.

THAT WOULD HELP GROUND ME

AND BRING ME BACK TO GOD,

I HAVE TO HOLD ON.

THAT'S WHAT GOD'S WORD

SAYS, SO I HAVE TO BELIEVE

IT.

GOD'S WORD IS TRUE, IN

THAT IT NEVER COMES BACK

VOID, WHATEVER HIS PROMISE

IS.

Reporter: ANDREA

WAITED AND PRAYED THROUGH

DAYS OF PROGRESS AND

SETBACKS.

HIS INTERNAL CRANIAL

PRESSURES WOULD GO UP, OR

HIS BLOOD PRESSURE WOULD

GET REALLY HIGH, OR HE

WOULD HAVE A HIGH FEVER,

AND THEY WERE AFRAID HE

WOULD START TO HAVE

SEIZURES -- THINGS LIKE

THAT.

IT WOULD CONSTANTLY KIND

OF GO UP AND DOWN.

HE WAS DOING GOOD AND THEN

THINGS WERE GETTING BAD.

Reporter: FINALLY,

AFTER TWO WEEKS IN A COMA,

THEY HAD A BREAKTHROUGH.

WHILE SURROUNDED BY HIS

FAMILY, CLINT WOKE UP.

HE SAT UP, AND HIS EYES

GOT BIG, AND HE WAS, LIKE,

I KNOW THEM.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS, CLINT

RECOVERED MENTALLY AND

PHYSICALLY, BEYOND

DOCTORS' EXPECTATIONS.

HE SAYS HE HAD TO RELEARN

EVEN THE SIMPLEST OF

TASKS.

YOU GET BRAIN DAMAGE,

AND, GUESS WHAT?

YOU MIGHT GET TO GROW UP

AGAIN, HAVING TO RELEARN

ALL KINDS OF THINGS AGAIN,

LIKE HOW TO DO JUST ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: CLINT AND

ANDREA BELIEVE HIS

RECOVERY WAS MIRACULOUS

AND AN ANSWER TO PRAYER.

YOU JUST HAVE TO BE

ABLE TO KNOW GOD WILL TAKE

CARE OF YOU.

WHATEVER IT IS, TRUST IN

GOD WITH EVERYTHING.

THEY WERE JUST STUDY.

THEY PRAYED.

THEY WALKED IN FAITH.

AND THEY RECEIVED THEIR

MIRACLE.

AND THE FACT THAT CLINT

WAS ABLE TO OVERCOME THAT

KIND OF A DIAGNOSIS, TO

EVEN BE FUNCTIONAL AS A

HUMAN BEING, IS ABSOLUTELY

MIRACULOUS, LET ALONE BE

ABLE TO CONTINUE HIS JOB.

BEFORE HE WAS KIND OF

QUIET AND RESERVED, DIDN'T

REALLY TALK MUCH, AND NOW

HE TALKS A LOT.

HE RESTORED ME.

I GOT BACK EVERYTHING THAT

I NEED AND MORE.

I'VE GOT TWO GIRLS AND A

HAPPY WIFE.

GOD HAS HELPED US NOT TO

JUST MOVE FORWARD, BUT TO

PROSPER.

IF YOU JUST TRUST HIM,

HE'LL PROVIDE YOU WHAT YOU

NEED AND MORE.

Terry: PLANS TO GIVE

YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE.

THAT'S WHAT THE WORD OF

GOD SAYS.

AS YOU LISTEN TO CLINT'S

STORY TODAY, I HOPE IT IS

ENCOURAGING TO YOU IN

WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCES YOU

FACE.

WE ALSO HAVE SOME OTHER

STORIES OF VICTORY HERE.

THIS IS TERESA, WHO LIVES

IN OHIO, AND SHE HAD WHAT

SHE DESCRIBED AS, QUOTE,

"A BLACK SPACE IN HER LEFT

EYE."

ONE DAY SHE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM, AND, GORDON,

SHE HEARD YOU SAY, "YOU

HAVE A DETACHED RETINA AND

YOU HAVE YOUR LEFT-HAND

OVER YOUR EYE.

REMOVE YOUR HAND, AND

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO SEE

CLEARLY."

WHEN TERESA MOVED HER

HAND, THE BLACK SPOT HAD

DISAPPEARED AND SHE COULD

SEE CLEARLY.

Gordon: JUDY FROM

ILLINOIS WAS WATCHING "THE

700 CLUB."

TERRY SAID, "THERE IS

SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN

SUFFERING WITH ALOPECIA

FOR A LONG TIME.

AND YOU HAVE REALLY GIVEN

UP ON BELIEVING OF BEING

HEALED.

GOD IS HEALING YOU, AND

YOUR HAIR IS GOING TO GROW

AGAIN."

WELL, JUDY'S HUSBAND WAS

STRUGGLING WITH THIS, SO

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD FOR

HIM, AND NOW TODAY HIS

HAIR IS GROWING BACK.

WOW!

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD

CURE BALDNESS.

Terry: ENCOURAGING,

HUH?

Gordon: AS MY

FOREHEAD INCREASES.

> LET'S JUST BELIEVE

GOD, AND WHAT A WONDERFUL

STORY.

WHAT A WONDERFUL MIRACLE,

HOW GOD RESTORES WHAT THE

ENEMY SEEKS TO TAKE AWAY.

THE ENEMY WANTS TO ROB

FROM US, HE WANTS TO

STEAL, HE WANTS TO

DESTROY, BUT GOD WANTS TO

BRING US LIFE.

THAT'S WHY JESUS CAME,

THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE

AND MORE ABUNDANTLY.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU IN

PAIN.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU

DISABLED.

HE DOESN'T WANT YOU LIVING

A LIFE OF HOPELESSNESS.

NO.

HE CAME THAT YOU MIGHT

HAVE LIFE.

SO LET'S PRAY THAT.

LET'S BELIEVE THAT.

AND WHEN WE BELIEVE

TOGETHER, HERE IS WHAT THE

BIBLE SAYS: "WHEN TWO OR

MORE AGREE TOUCHING

ANYTHING" -- SO TERRY AND

I ARE GOING TO AGREE, AND

WE HAVE A WONDERFUL STUDIO

AUDIENCE, AND THEY'RE

GOING TO AGREE, AND GOD IS

GOING TO HONOR HIS WORD.

HE IS GOING TO DO MIRACLES

TODAY.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE

NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE TO

YOU.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE REACHING

OUT IN FAITH, BELIEVING

YOUR WORD, BELIEVING THE

PROMISE THAT YOU CAME THAT

WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND

HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY,

WE JUST SPEAK TO THOSE

THINGS THAT ARE DEAD, AND

WE SAY, COME TO LIFE NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

FOR THOSE PRAYERS THAT ARE

NO LONGER BEING PRAYED

ANYMORE, WE SPEAK HOPE

INTO THEM, FAITH, AND

STRENGTH.

MAY THEY HAVE RENEWAL,

LORD GOD, RESTORATION IN

THEIR BODIES AND IN THEIR

MINDS.

EVERYTHING CONCERNING

THEM.

YOU NUMBER THE VERY HAIRS

ON THEIR HEAD.

SO, LORD GOD, DO MIRACLES

NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE

A SEVERE PAIN IN YOUR

UPPER RIGHT BREAST.

AND IT'S -- I DON'T KNOW

THE CAUSE.

BUT IT'S LIKE A BURNING

SENSATION DEEP WITHIN THE

TISSUE.

AND GOD IS JUST HEALING

YOU RIGHT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

HE IS TAKING ALL OF THAT

AWAY.

IT'S GOING TO DEPART FROM

YOU AND NEVER RETURN.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE HAD

HEARING LOSS IN ONE OF

YOUR EARS FROM AN INJURY.

AND YOU JUST HAVE ACCEPTED

THAT IT WILL NEVER, EVER

BE RESTORED.

BUT TODAY GOD IS TAKING

WHAT WAS DEAD AND BRINGING

NEW LIFE TO IT.

AND NOW, IN JESUS' NAME,

YOUR EAR IS OPENED.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE GOT

SWOLLEN LYMPH NODES, AND

IT'S PRIMARILY IN YOUR

RIGHT ARM, BUT IT IS

ELSEWHERE IN YOUR BODY.

YOU'RE EXTREMELY WORRIED

ABOUT IT.

GOD IS HEALING YOU.

HE IS RESTORING YOUR

IMMUNE SYSTEM, TAKING ALL

OF THAT SWELLING NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

DON'T BE CONCERNED ABOUT

IT ANYMORE.

JUST CAST ALL YOUR CARE,

ALL YOUR ANXIETY, ALL YOUR

WORRY ON HIM, FOR HE CARES

FOR YOU.

Terry: THERE IS A

YOUNG MAN, AND YOU'VE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH TESTICULAR

CANCER, AND YOU ARE SO

FEARFUL FOR YOUR FUTURE.

GOD IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT

NOW, AND YOU ARE BEING

COMPLETELY HEALED.

JUST LIFT UP YOUR HANDS

AND RECEIVE IT, AND THANK

GOD.

Gordon: GOD IS

SPEAKING TO COUPLES WHO

ARE BARREN.

HE IS GIVING YOU THE POWER

TO CLAIM LIFE.

LAY YOUR HANDS ON YOUR

ABDOMEN AND JUST BELIEVE

GOD FOR A CREATIVE

MIRACLE.

HE IS GIVING YOU THE POWER

TO GIVE LIFE IN JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: AND THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH CHRONIC

KIDNEY PROBLEMS, HEALED IN

JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: LORD, WE

THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE.

YOU CAME TO US WHILE WE

WERE SINNERS TO GIVE US

LIFE, TO GIVE US

SALVATION, TO GIVE US

WHOLENESS, TO GIVE US

FORGIVENESS, TO GIVE US

HEALING.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR

REPORT AND TELL OTHERS

ABOUT THE MIRACLES THAT

GOD IS DOING TODAY.

JUST GIVE US A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

WE REMIND YOU THAT WE

BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER, PRAYER THAT GETS

AN ANSWER.

THAT'S WHY JESUS GAVE US

THE STORY OF THE I IMPORTUNE

WIDOW WHO KNOCKED ON THE

DOOR UNTIL SHE GOT AN

ANSWER.

WE WANT TO KNOCK ON THE

DOOR WITH YOU.

IT IS OUR HONOR AND OUR

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

WOMAN CHECKS HER HUSBAND'S

PHONE AND FINDS OUT HE IS

HAVING AN AFFAIR.

A LOT OF THINGS THAT HE

HAD SAID TO ME, HE WAS

TELLING HIS OTHER PERSON.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Gordon: LIKE MANY

CHILDREN, CAROL HAS A FEAR

OF SNAKES, ESPECIALLY

SINCE HER GRANDFATHER DIED

FROM A MAKE BITE.

STILL, SHE HAS TO WALK

DOWN A SNAKE-INFESTED PATH

FOUR TIMES A DAY JUST TO

GET CLEAN WATER.

Reporter: JASINTA AND

HER TWO DAUGHTERS LIVE IN

THIS JUNGLE COMMUNITY ON

TOP OF A MOUNTAIN IN

HONDURAS.

SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, TWICE A

DAY, JASINTA AND HER OLDER

DAUGHTER, CAROL, MADE

THEIR WAY DOWN THIS STEEP

SLOPE TO COLLECT WATER

FROM A STAGNANT POND.

ONE DAY JATINTA FELL.

I RAN AND TRIED TO HELP

HER, BUT SHE COULDN'T

STAND UP FOR A LONG TIME.

Reporter: WHILE HER

BACK HEALED, JASINTA SENT

HER DAUGHTER TO COLLECT

WATER.

CAROL NOW MADE FOUR TRIPS

A DAY INSTEAD OF TWO.

SHE DIDN'T MIND THE EXTRA

WORK, BUT SHE WAS AFRAID

OF SNAKES.

I AM ALWAYS AFRAID A

SNAKE WILL COME OUT AND

BITE ME.

I AM ALWAYS WATCHING.

MAMA TOLD ME THAT GRANDPA

DIED WHEN A SNAKE BIT HIM.

Reporter: JASINTA IS

A SINGLE PARENT, RAISING

TWO DAUGHTERS.

SHE WORKS ON SEVERAL

COFFEE PLANTATIONS,

PLANTING AND HARVESTING.

HER GREATEST CHALLENGE HAS

BEEN FINDING CLEAN WATER.

WHAT THEY COLLECT HAS

ALWAYS BEEN DIRTY AND

FILLED WITH BACTERIA.

SOMETIMES WHEN I DRANK

THE WATER, I GOT SICK AND

THREW UP.

I DIDN'T LIKE TO DRINK IT.

ONE DAY MY LITTLE SISTER

GOT REALLY SICK.

EVERY TIME MY DAUGHTERS

GOT SICK, I HAD TO BORROW

MONEY TO TAKE THEM DOWN

THE MOUNTAIN TO THE

DOCTOR.

Reporter: SO

"OPERATION BLESSING"

OFFERED TO HELP.

WORKING WITH THE

COMMUNITY, WE UNCOVERED AN

UNDERGROUND SOURCE OF

WATER.

WE THEN PURIFIED IT AND

PUMPED IT INTO A

10,000-GALLON TANK.

NOW THERE IS FRESH WATER

AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE IN

THE COMMUNITY, INCLUDING

CAROL AND HER FAMILY.

WHEN I SAW THE WATER, I

THOUGHT WE WILL NEVER GO

BACK AND CARRY WATER FROM

THE POND AGAIN.

THANKS, "OPERATION

BLESSING," FOR BRINGING US

CLEAN WATER.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, HER

HUSBAND CHEATED ON HER,

AND THEN LATER HE NEEDED

HER HELP TO SAVE HIS LIFE.

I'M, LIKE, NO, WHY GET

ME INVOLVED?

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH ME.

THIS IS MINE, I'M NOT

SHARING.

Terry: SEE WHAT LED

HER TO A CHANGE OF HEART,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: REBECCA DUVAL

THOUGHT SHE HAD FORGIVEN

HER HUSBAND AFTER HE HAD

AN AFFAIR WITH A

CO-WORKER.

AND THEN YEARS LATER, HE

BECOME VERY SICK, AND HE

NEEDED HER KIDNEY TO

SURVIVE.

THAT'S WHEN REBECCA

REALIZED SHE REALLY HADN'T

FORGIVEN HIM AT ALL.

WE NEVER ARGUED ABOUT

ANYTHING.

WE ALWAYS SAW EYE TO EYE

ON THINGS.

SO WE WERE ALWAYS JUST

REALLY HAPPY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS THE

PERFECT MATCH.

Reporter: REBECCA AND

ROBERT HAD BOTH BEEN

MARRIED BEFORE, BUT THIS

TIME AROUND THEY KNEW THEY

FOUND LASTING LOVE.

I LIKED THAT SHE WAS

INDEPENDENT.

AND I REALLY HAD A LOT OF

RESPECT FOR THE FACT THAT

SHE WAS RAISING TWO GIRLS

ON HER OWN.

THAT REALLY DREW ME.

WHEN WE FIRST MET, I HAD

TOLD HER SHE WAS MY ANGEL.

Reporter: THEN FIVE

YEARS INTO THE MARRIAGE,

THEY STARTED GROWING

APART.

THEY NOW HAD THREE

CHILDREN, AND THEIR

RESPONSIBILITIES AT WORK

AND HOME HAD BECOME MORE

DEMANDING.

I HAD NOTICED THERE WAS

DEFINITELY SOMETHING

MISSING IN OUR

RELATIONSHIP.

I FELT LIKE THERE WAS

SOMETHING THAT WAS KEEPING

US APART.

THERE WAS SOMETHING GOING

ON THAT JUST WASN'T RIGHT.

AND SO I HAD -- BUT I HAD

CHOSE TO IGNORE IT.

Reporter: AS IT

TURNED OUT, ROBERT HAD

STARTED AN AFFAIR WITH A

FEMALE CO-WORKER.

REBECCA FOUND OUT WHEN SHE

DISCOVERED SOME TEXTS ON

HIS PHONE.

WHEN WE WERE FIRST

COURTING, IN THE LONG

CONVERSATIONS WE HAD, A

LOT OF THINGS HE SAID TO

ME HE WAS TELLING THIS

OTHER PERSON, SO MY HEART

WAS JUST BROKEN.

Reporter: ROBERT HAD

ALREADY ENDED THE AFFAIR

AFTER FOUR MONTHS, BUT THE

DAMAGE WAS DONE.

I WAS ASHAMED.

I WAS HURT BECAUSE I SAW

HOW HURT I HAD MADE HER.

THERE WERE SEVERAL TIMES

THAT I HAD TRIED TO BUILD

THE COURAGE UP JUST TO

TELL HER, AND I NEVER

WANTED TO BE DIVORCED.

I NEVER WANTED TO LEAVE MY

FAMILY.

Reporter: REBECCA HAD

RECENTLY BECOME A

CHRISTIAN.

UNSURE OF WHAT TO DO NEXT,

SHE WENT TO A CHRISTIAN

COUNSELLOR.

SHE SAID, THIS IS YOUR

CHOICE.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE WHETHER

TO WALK AWAY OR TO STAY

AND FIGHT FOR YOUR

MARRIAGE.

I KNEW RIGHT THEN I NEEDED

TO STAY AND FIGHT.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

STARTED MARRIAGE

COUNSELLING AND FELT THEY

WERE MAKING PROGRESS.

THEN ROBERT SUFFERED A

HEART ATTACK.

OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL

YEARS, HIS HEALTH STEADILY

DECLINED, AND HE BECAME

DEPENDENT ON HIS WIFE'S

CARE.

IT STARTED COMING OUT

THAT I HADN'T TRULY

FORGIVING HIM BECAUSE I

WASN'T BEING THE LOVING

WIFE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

I THINK IT WAS STILL IN

THE BACK OF MY MIND, THAT

HE DIDN'T DESERVE THE

LOVING CARE.

Reporter: AFTER SIX

YEARS, ROBERT WAS

DIAGNOSED WITH KIDNEY

FAILURE.

HE ASKED REBECCA TO GET

TESTED TO BE A DONOR

MATCH.

I WAS, LIKE, NO.

NO.

WHY GET ME INVOLVED.

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH ME.

THIS IS NI STUFF.

MY STUFF.

I'M ALL GOOD.

AND HOW IN THE WORLD AM I

GOING TO CARE FOR YOU IF

I'M DOWN.

HIS IS MINE; I'M NOT

SHARING.

Reporter: AS THE

MONTHS WENT BY WITH NO

MATCH FOR ROBERT, SHE

REALIZED WHAT SHE NEEDED

TO DO.

NOT FORGIVING HIM WAS

STOPPING ME FROM SHOWING

HIM TRUE LOVE, THE WAY

THAT GOD INTENDS FOR US

TO.

I WAS ASKING GOD TO GIVE

ME A HEART FOR MY HUSBAND,

TO HELP ME LOVE HIM THE

WAY HE DESIRED ME TO LOVE

HIM.

SO THAT MY ACTIONS WOULD

SHOW AND MY WORDS WOULD

SHOW WITH WHERE MY HEART

WAS.

Reporter: REBECCA

FINALLY AGREED TO GET

TESTED.

GOD JUST REALLY

CONVICTED ME.

BE TESTED AND TRUST THE

OUTCOME.

SO A FEW WEEKS LATER, I

GET A PHONE CALL FROM THE

PERSON IN CHARGE OF THE

CASE.

AND SHE SAID, NO ONLY IS A

MATCH, WHEN WE PUT YOUR

TWO BLOOD TYPES TOGETHER,

ONE WILL USUALLY TRY TO

DOMINATE THE OTHERS, BUT

YOUR TWO WERE SO

HORMONEIUSLY.

Reporter: OW SO ROBERT

WAS HEALED.

I WANTED TO BECOME A

MAN OF INTEGRITY.

I FOREGAV FORGAVE HIM, AND I

REALLY MEANT IT INSIDE OF

ME, REALLY DEEPLY.

OF ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN MY

LIFE, THAT WAS LIKE TAKING

A WEIGHT OFF MY SHOULDER.

Reporter: REBECCA

SAYS WHEN SHE TRULY

FORGAVE HER HUSBAND, THEY

BOTH RECEIVED THE HEALING

THEY DESPERATELY NEEDED.

HE WAS RESTORING OUR

MARRIAGE.

IT WAS KIND OF THE

BEGINNING OF THE NEW.

HE TOOK US THROUGH A

VALLEY, BUT WHERE WE ENDED

UP IS JUST BEAUTIFUL.

Reporter: TODAY

ROBERT IS A CHAPLAIN FOR

LAW ENFORCEMENT, AND THE

COUPLE SAY WITH GOD AT THE

CENTER OF THEIR LIVES,

THEIR MARRIAGE IS STRONGER

THAN EVER.

NOW OUR MARRIAGE IS SO

MUCH DEEPER.

IT'S A DEEPER KIND OF LOVE

AND RESPECT.

BACK IN THE OLD TIME,

THERE WASN'T A LOT OF HOPE

BECAUSE WE WERE LIVING IN

THE MOMENT.

NOW WE'RE LIVING IN THE

MOMENT, BUT WE'RE ALSO

LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT

GOD HAS IN STORE FOR US,

AND IT IS GOING TO BE

AWESOME.

Terry: YOU KNOW, I

OFTEN THINK IN MARRIAGE

HOW WE KIND OF BLINDLY

COME TO THE ALTER AND WE

PROFESS OUR LOVE TO EACH

OTHER, AND WE TAKE THOSE

VOWS OF HOW WE'RE GOING TO

STAND WITH EACH OTHER

THROUGH THICK AND THIN.

AND WE MEAN IT AT THE

TIME.

WE JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND

HOW THICK AND THIN IT CAN

GET.

AND THEN LIFE HAPPENS.

AND, YOU KNOW, I THINK IT

IS THE REASON WE TAKE THAT

VOW.

IF THE VOW REALLY MATTERS

TO YOU WHEN YOU MAKE IT,

THEN IT IS SOMETIMES THE

THREAD TO HOLDS YOU

TOGETHER WHEN EVERYTHING

ELSE SEEMS TO BE FALLING

APART.

YOU KNOW, GOD INTENDS FOR

US TO GROW IN OUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM AND

WITH EACH OTHER.

AND WE ARE FAILED, FLAWED

HUMAN BEINGS, IN NEED OF A

SAVIOR.

BUT WHEN WE'VE BEEN

WRONGED BY SOMEONE, IT IS

SO EASY TO STAND ON OUR

RIGHTS, TO STAND ON WHAT

WE SEE AS OUR OWN

RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE

SITUATION.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS I

THINK IS SO WONDERFUL

ABOUT OUR GOOD, GOOD

FATHER IS THAT HE DOESN'T

LET US STAY THERE.

YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE HIS

CHILD, GOD LOVES YOU TOO

MUCH TO LET YOU STAY WHERE

YOU ARE.

HE WANTS TO LOVE YOU TO A

DEEPER, HIGHER, BETTER

PLACE.

WE HAVE TO BE WILLING.

WE HAVE TO BE WILLING TO

BE SHAPED AND TO BE

CHANGED BY OUR

CIRCUMSTANCES.

AND, YOU KNOW, WHEN WE

TALK ABOUT FIRST COMING TO

CHRIST AND SURRENDERING

OUR LIVES, THAT'S WHAT

IT'S ABOUT, LAYING DOWN

OUR RIGHTS.

AN EASY THING TO SAY WHEN

YOU'RE RIGHTS AREN'T BEING

VIOLATED OR MISUSED OR

ABUSED IN SOME WAY.

NOT SO EASY WHEN SOMEONE

HAS DONE SOMETHING TO HURT

OR TO WOUND YOU.

I OFTEN GO BACK AND READ,

NOT JUST FOR MY MARRIAGE,

BUT FOR MY RELATIONSHIPS

IN MY LIFE IN GENERAL, 1

CORINTHIANS 13.

IT IS SO RICH.

WE HEAR IT REPEATED AT

WEDDINGS.

WE HEAR IT SPOKEN OF.

IT IS THE LOVE CHAPTER.

BUT GO BACK AND READ WHAT

IT SAYS, LOVE IS NOT

EASILY OFFENDED.

IT TAKES NO NOTICE OF

WRONG-DOING.

THOSE ARE HEAVY DUTY

THINGS WHEN THAT HAS

HAPPENED TO YOU, WHEN

SOMEONE HAS OFFENDED YOU,

WHEN THEY HAVE VIOLATED

YOU, MISUSED YOU, CHEATED

YOU IN SOME WAY.

BUT WHAT IS SAID IN THIS

STORY IS SO TRUE ABOUT

LIFE.

WHEN YOU CHOOSE -- BECAUSE

IT IS A CHOICE -- WHEN YOU

CHOOSE TO FORGIVE YO, YOU ARE

SET FREE FROM BITTERNESS,

FROM RESENTMENT, FROM

CONSTANTLY EVALUATING AND

GRADING SOMEONE ELSE'S

PERFORMANCE IN YOUR LIFE.

THAT'S NOT GOD'S PLAN FOR

YOU AND ME.

HIS PLAN IS FOR US TO LIVE

IN THE FULLNESS AND THE

JOY OF HIS PRESENCE IN OUR

LIVES.

BUT HE CAN'T FILL US IF WE

ARE FILLED WITH SOMETHING

WE HAVE CHOSEN OTHER THAN

HIS WAY.

SO TODAY, WILL YOU CHOOSE

FORGIVENESS IN YOUR LIFE.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WHAT

THE OTHER PERSON DID WAS

OKAY.

BUT IT DOES MEAN THAT YOU

GET A NEW BEGINNING, WHICH

WE ALL NEED EVERY SINGLE

DAY, DON'T WE?

AND IT MEANS YOU GIVE

FREEDOM TO THE PERSON --

THIS IS THE HARD PART --

WHO HAS OFFENDED YOU.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THEY GO

SCOTSCOT-FREE.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THEY DON'T

HAVE ISSUES TO DEAL WITH.

IT ALL BEGINS WITH JUST

TALKING TO YOUR FATHER,

YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER, WHO

KNOWS YOU AND KNOWS YOUR

NEED AND KNOWS WHAT HAS

BEEN DONE TO YOU.

JUST SAY, GOD, I WANT TO

FORGIVE.

I WANT TO BE SET FREE.

I ASK YOU TO HELP ME

FORGIVE.

AND HELP ME BE REAL ABOUT

IT.

LET IT BE DEEP, AND LET IT

GO DOWN INTO THE HEART OF

ME, TO THE VERY ROOT OF

WHAT I'M HANGING ON TO.

I WANT TO DO IT YOUR WAY,

GOD.

YOU SEE, THAT'S WHAT JESUS

DID FOR US.

WHILE WE WERE STILL

SINNERS, HE DIED FOR US.

LET THAT BE YOUR

MOTIVATION.

> LISTEN, IF YOU NEED

SOMEONE TO PRAY WITH YOU

TODAY ABOUT THIS, BECAUSE

WHEN WE PRAY TOGETHER IN

UNITY, HEAVEN MOVES ON OUR

BEHALF, OUR NUMBER IS

TOLL-FREE.

1-800-700-7000.

WHEN YOU CALL, IF YOU'RE

STRUGGLING IN YOUR

MARRIAGE, ASK FOR THE LOVE

AND MARRIAGE PA PAMPHLET.

THIS MOST SPECIAL

RELATIONSHIP THAT MANY OF

1-800-700-7000.

> WE'VE GOT E-MAILS.

Terry: IT IS TIME TO

"BRING IT ON".

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

A VIEWER WHO SAYS, "I HAVE

BEEN A CHRISTIAN FOR 41

YEARS.

I'VE SPENT COUNTLESS HOURS

SERVING AND HAVE INVESTED

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS INTO

DIFFERENT MINISTRIES, AND

YET I DO NOT HAVE LIFE

MORE ABUNDANTLY.

RATHER, MY LIFE HAS BEEN

ONE BIG DISAPPOINTMENT

AFTER ANOTHER.

AND I'M STILL WORRY ABOUT

WHERE MY NEXT DOLLAR IS

GOING TO COME FROM.

BECAUSE OF THIS, I'M

HAVING A CRISIS OF FAITH.

I KNOW I'M HERE TO SERVE

GOD AND NOT THE OTHER WAY

ARNTDAROUND, BUT I SIMPLY DO

NOT SEE HIS FAITHFULNESS

IN MY LIFE.

PLEASE EXPLAIN BEFORE I

GIVE UP ON GOD."

Gordon: PLEASE DON'T

GIVE UP ONED GOD.

LOOK AON GOD.

LOOK AT THE FIRST

TESTAMENT AND THE OLD

TESTAMENT AND THE NEW

TESTAMENT.

HE COULDN'T HELP BUT

SPEAK THE WORDS THAT GOD

WAS GIVING HIM.

AND BECAUSE HE DID THAT

WITH BOLDNESS, HE WAS

THROWN INTO A PIT.

AND NO ONE LISTENED TO

HIM, EVEN THE HIGH

PRIESTS, THE PRIESTS OF

THE TEMPLE, WHO STRUCK HIM

AND BEAT HIM.

THE KING SET HIS FACE

AGAINST HIM.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT, NO

ONE BELIEVED HIM.

AND THEN EVEN AFTER HIS

PROPHECIES WERE FULFILLED,

THE REMNANT IN THE LAND

DIDN'T BELIEVE HIM AND

DIDN'T LEAVE HIM THERE.

THEY TOOK HIM OFF TO

EGYPT.

EVEN WHEN HE SAID, DON'T

DO THIS.

ELIJAH, A GREAT PROPHET OF

GOD, HAD FIRE COME DOWN

FROM HEAVEN AND THEN HAD

TO RUN AWAY AND HIDE.

SO THESE THINGS CAN

HAPPEN.

THE APOSTLE PAUL, NEW

TESTAMENT, HOW MANY TIMES

WAS HE SHIP WRECKED?

HOW MANY TIMES WAS HE

BEATEN?

HOW MANY TIMES WAS HE PUT

IN PRISON?

THERE IS A COST FOR

FOLLOWING JESUS.

AND ARE WE PREPARED TO PAY

THAT COST?

AT THE SAME TIME, THERE

ARE THESE WONDERFUL

PROMISES.

I PREACH THE PROMISES OF

GOD.

BLESSING AND PROSPERITY

WILL BE YOURS -- THESE ARE

THE THINGS FOR THOSE WHO

FEAR GOD.

I WOULD HOLD ON TO THAT

PROMISE AND SAY, LORD,

WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?

WHAT IS THE WAY YOU WANT

ME TO WALK IN?

DON'T JUST BLAME HIM FOR

THE BAD THINGS.

SAY, OKAY, HERE ARE THE

BAD THINGS.

SHOW ME THE GOOD THINGS

THAT YOU WANT ME TO WALK

INTO.

PRAY THAT AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

THERE IS ALSO IS CHOICE

MADE THERE, DON'T YOU

THINK?

PAUL SAID, COUNT IT ALL

JOY.

Gordon: IN EVERYTHING

GIVE THANKS FOR THIS IS

THE WILL OF GOD.

Terry: HOW DO YOU GET

THERE?

Gordon: THROUGH THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

I'LL BE THE FIRST TO

CONFESS THAT I'VE REALLY

HAD TO LEARN LESSONS FROM

THE COMPLAINING IN THE

WILDERNESS.

LET'S STOP THAT.

LET'S STOP THAT.

THAT WAS ONE QUESTION.

IT WAS A LONG QUESTION AND

A LONG ANSWER.

IT DESERVED A LONG ANSWER

BECAUSE I THINK A LOT OF

PEOPLE GO THROUGH THAT.

AND WHEN YOU GO THROUGH

TOUGH TIMES WITH GOD IN

LIFE, YOU'VE GOT TO RELIES

HE IS THREALIZE HE IS THE WAY OUT

OF IT.

> "WHOEVER BELIEVES IN

ME, AS SCRIPTURE HAS SAID,

RIVERS OF LIVING WATER

WILL FLOW FROM WITHIN

THEM."

GOD BLESS YOU, WE'LL SEE

YOU NEXT WEEK.
