Gordon: TOUR AN

ANCIENT LAND HIDDEN FOR

2,000 YEARS, AND SEE HOW

IT BRINGS THE STORIES OF

THE BIBLE TO LIFE.

WE ARE STANDING AT THE

PLACE OF ANOINTING.

Gordon: THEN...CAUGHT

IN THE CROSS-FIRE.

MY LEG GAVE OUT O.

Gordon: ONE YOUNG MAN

NEARLY BLEEDS TO DEATH.

FIND OUT WHAT SAVED HIS

LIFE.

I BLACKED OUT.

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THERE IS GOING TO BE A

VOTE ON CAPITOL HILL

TODAY.

AND THAT'S PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S MESSAGE TO

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS.

HE SAYS HE IS DONE

NEGOTIATING, AND HE WANTS

A VOTE TODAY ON THE PLAN

TO REPEAL AND REPLACE

OBAMACARE.

Terry: MANY

REPUBLICANS STILL AREN'T

ON BOARD WITH THE HOUSE

LEADERSHIP'S PLAN.

AND IF THE BILL FAILS, THE

PRESIDENT SAYS OBAMACARE

WILL REMAIN IN PLACE FOR

NOW.

CBN NEWS WHITE HOUSE

CORRESPONDENT JENNIFER

WISHON BRINGS US THIS

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Jennifer: INSTEAD OF

VOTING THURSDAY NIGHT,

MEMBERS OF THE

CONSERVATIVE HOUSE FREEDOM

CAUCUS FILED INTO SPEAKER

PAUL RYAN'S HOUSE,

FOLLOWED BY STEVE BANNON

AND REINCE PRIEBUS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S PLAIN

SPEAKING NON-NONSENSE

BUDGET DIRECTOR SPOKE TO

LAWMAKERS BEHIND CLOSED

DOORS.

HIS MESSAGE: THE PRESIDENT

IS DONE NEGOTIATING.

HE WANTS A VOTE, AND

WHETHER THE AMERICAN

HEALTH CARE ACT IS VOTED

UP OR DOWN, TRUMP IS

MOVING DOWN.

THIS FOLLOWS A WEEK WHERE

BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND

VICE PRESIDENT HAVE

PERSONALLY WORKED TO WIN

OVER LAWMAKERS.

THIS IS -- AND I THINK

A LOT OF MEMBERS REALIZE

THIS -- IF YOU WANT TO GET

OBAMACARE OFF THE BOOKS

AND REPEAL IT, THIS IS THE

FIRST STEP.

WE ONLY GET ONE SHOT

THROUGH RECONCILIATION.

Jennifer: AFTER

NEGOTIATIONS ON THURSDAY

WITH BOTH CONSERVATIVE AND

MODERATE REPUBLICANS,

SPEAKER RYAN ANNOUNCED AN

AMENDMENT TO PASS THE BILL

OVER TO THE SENATE.

THE AMENDMENT GIVES STATES

THE POWER TO DEFINE

ESSENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITS,

CURRENTLY MANDATED BY

OBAMACARE.

CRITICS SAY GIVING

WASHINGTON THE POWER TO

SAY WHAT INSURANCE PLANS

NEED TO COVER, WHETHER

PEOPLE NEED THAT COVERAGE

OR NOT, HAS BEEN A BIG

REASON WHY THE COST OF

INSURANCE HAS GONE UP SO

MUCH.

THE AMENDMENT ALSO

DEDICATES AN ADDITIONAL

$15 BILLION TO THE PATIENT

AND STATE STABILITY FUND,

TO PROVIDE RESOURCES FOR

SERVICES LIKE MATERNITY,

MENTAL HEALTH, AND

SUBSTANCE ABUSE CARE.

AND IT DELAYS THE REPEAL

OF THE MEDICARE TAX

INCREASE FOR SIX YEARS,

WHICH HELPS PAY FOR THAT

INCREASED $15 BILLION TO

STATES.

SPEAKER RYAN NEEDS MOST

REPUBLICANS ON BOARD SINCE

NO DEMOCRATS ARE EXPECTED

TO SUPPORT THE

LEGISLATION.

RIGHT NOW THE MAIN

SALES PITCH FOR THIS

LEGISLATION IS, WELL, IT'S

NOT AS BAD AS OBAMACARE.

WELL, NOT BEING AS BAD AS

OBAMACARE, THAT'S A PRETTY

LOW BAR AND THAT DOESN'T

MAKE IT GOOD.

Jennifer: FOR SOME

LAWMAKERS, PRO-LIFE

LANGUAGE IN THE BILL IS A

SELLING POINT.

WE TAKE OUT A LOT OF

THE PROVISIONS CURRENTLY

IN OBAMACARE THAT ARE

PAYING FOR ABORTION WITH

TAXPAYER DOLLARS, AND THAT

IS JUST WRONG.

Jennifer: VOTES FOR

NOT, THE SHOWDOWN HAPPENS

TODAY.

IF IT FAILS, OBAMACARE

REMAINS THE LAW OF THE

LAND.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: JOINING US

NOW FROM CAPITOL HILL IS

CONGRESSMAN LOUIE GOMER OF

TEXAS.

HE IS A MEMBER OF THE

HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS, AND

THEY'VE BEEN OPPOSED TO

THE CURRENT BILL ON HEALTH

CARE.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

SURE, GORDON.

GOOD TO BE WITH YOU.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE A

PLEASANT DAY.

AND THE BILL IS A PROBLEM.

IT WAS BASED ON A FALSE

PREMISE THAT WE HAD TO

THREAD A NEEDLE, WE'VE

BEEN TOLD FOR WEEKS,

BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY

THINGS WE WANTED THAT

COULDN'T BE IN THE BILL

BECAUSE IT WOULDN'T

SURVIVE THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN.

AND WE CAN'T KNOW WHAT THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN WILL

PROVIDE.

THE SENATOR FOUND OUT THIS

WEEK, ALL YOU HAD TO DO IS

GO ASK THE PARLIAMENTARIAN

AND SHE WOULD TELL YOU

WHAT SHE THOUGHT, AND THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN DOESN'T

RULE.

THE PARLIAMENTARIAN ONLY

ADVISES THE PRESIDING

OFFICER, EITHER MIKE PENCE

OR MITCHELL McCONNELL OR

WHOEVER HE APPOINTS.

WE'VE BEEN TOLD, GEE, YOU

CAN TAKE CONSOLATION IN

THE FACT WE'RE GOING TO

GIVE A LOT MORE POWER TO

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT,

AND WE'LL BE ABLE TO

CREATE A NEW FEDERAL

EXCHANGE TO TAKE HIGH-RISK

PEOPLE.

REALLY?

THE ANSWER IS MORE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT?

MORE FEDERAL INTERVENTION?

AND THEY DON'T HAVE A GOOD

ANSWER FOR WHAT ABOUT WHEN

THE NEXT DEMOCRAT BECOMES

THE NEXT SECRETARY OF

HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES?

THE ANSWER IS NOT MORE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO FIX

THINGS.

THIS ISN'T KEEPING OUR

PROMISE.

I UNDERSTAND THE

PRESIDENT'S FRUSTRATION,

AND I THANK GOD HE GOT

ELECTED.

I UNDERSTAND HE HAS NEVER

HAD TO RELY ON PEOPLE TO

DRAFT DOCUMENTS THAT HE

DIDN'T HIRE, THAT WEREN'T

LOOKING OUT FOR HIS BEST

INTEREST.

I HOPE EVENTUALLY HE'LL

UNDERSTAND WE'RE ON HIS

SIDE, BUT THIS BILL IS NOT

WHAT ANY OF US PROMISED.

I DON'T CARE WHAT IT DOES.

YES, IT HAS SOME HELPFUL

STUFF WITH PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, FINALLY, WHICH

WE HAVEN'T TAKEN CARE OF.

YOU DANGLE THAT IN THERE

TO PASS AN ALBATROSS THAT

WILL BE A TERRIBLE THING.

WE'RE TOLD, COSTS MAY

DOUBLE IN THE NEXT COUPLE

OF YEARS, BUT TWO, THREE

YEARS FROM NOW, MAYBE

THEY'LL COME DOWN 10% IF

EVERYTHING WORKS OUT.

I'VE GOT PEOPLE HURTING

NOW BECAUSE OF OBAMACARE,

AND I'M SUPPOSED TO GO

BACK AND SAY, I VOTED FOR

THE BILL, AND YOUR BILLS

WILL MAYBE DOUBLE FOR A

COUPLE OF YEARS.

DON'T WORRY, THEY MIGHT

COME DOWN 10%.

THAT'S NOT WHAT WE

PROMISED WE WOULD DO.

I REPRESENT THE INTERESTS

OF OVER 700,000 PEOPLE,

AND I PLAY TO AN AUDIENCE

OF ONE AS WELL.

I'M NOT SELLING MY

INTEGRITY FOR ANYBODY.

IT WOULD BE VERY PLEASANT

TO HAVE BEEN PART OF THE

CHEERLEADING CROWD AND

GOTTEN THE STANDING

OVATIONS IN CONFERENCE

INSTEAD OF BEING ACCUSED

OF BEING A COWARD.

THIS IS NOT A FUN DAY FOR

ME.

BUT IT'S THE RIGHT THING

TO DO.

Gordon: I'M NOT SURE

IT IS GOING TO BE A FUN

DAY FOR ANYBODY.

WALK US THROUGH THE

RECONCILIATION PROCESS IN

THE SENATE, BECAUSE I

THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE JUST

DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT,

THAT THAT'S BEEN ONE OF

THE MAIN SELLING POINTS

HERE.

A GREAT QUESTION.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TOLD IT

IS JUST SO COMPLICATED.

GORDON, IT'S NOT THAT

COMPLICATED.

WE'VE BEEN TOLD THE BYRD

RULE IS SO COMPLICATED.

IT IS NOT THAT COMPLICATED

COMPLICATED.

BECAUSE RECONCILIATION

INVOLVES THE BUDGET, THEN

ANYTHING THAT IS MERELY

INCIDENTAL, AND THAT'S THE

WORD IN THE LAW AND THE

RULE -- IF IT IS MERELY

INCIDENTALLY AFFECTING THE

BUDGET, THEN IT DOESN'T

SURVIVE AND STAY PART OF

THIS PROCESS, THE

RECONCILIATION PROCESS.

BUT IF IT HAS ANY KIND OF

MATERIAL AFFECT ON THE

BUDGET SPENDING, THEN

ABSOLUTELY IT SURVIVES THE

BYRD RULE.

AND, MY GOODNESS, IF WE DO

THE RIGHT THING AND

ACTUALLY GO IN AND TAKE,

AS THE PRESIDENT AND

MITCHELL McCONNELL

PROMISED -- MITCH SAID,

WE'LL RIP IT OUT ROOT AND

BRANCH.

THIS ADDS A LOT OF

BRANCHES AND A LOT OF

ROOTS.

BUT IF WE DID WHAT WE

PROMISED, OF COURSE IT

COULD SURVIVE THE BYRD

RULE.

OF COURSE IT WOULD HAVE A

MAJOR AFFECT.

ANYWAY, WHEN YOU BASE THIS

ON THE PREMISE THAT WE

CAN'T KNOW UNTIL WE PASS

IT, SEND IT TO THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN, WHETHER

SHE WILL ADVICE THE VICE

PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT

OF THE SENATE, TO ALLOW IT

IN -- BY THE WAY, SO WHAT

HAPPENS -- ONE OF THE

DEMOCRATS CAN STAND UP AND

SAY IN THE SENATE, POINT

OF ORDER, THIS DOES NOT

SURVIVE THE BYRD RULE.

IT IS NOT MATERIAL.

IT IS MERELY INCIDENTAL TO

THE BUDGET.

AND THEN THE VICE

PRESIDENT, IF HE'S IN THE

CHAIR, OR WHOEVER MITCH

McCONNELL APPOINTS TO

THE PRO TEM, WILL HAVE THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN WHISPER IN

HIS OR HER EAR, AND THEN

THAT PERSON WILL RULE.

NOT WHAT THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN SAYS, BUT

WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

AND THE TRUTH IS, THE

THINGS WE WERE PROPOSING

THAT WOULD DRAMATICALLY

BRING DOWN COSTS WOULD

SURVIVE THAT PROCESS.

AND THE VICE PRESIDENT OR

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

SENATE, WHOEVER IS

PRESIDING, SHOULD RULE

YES, THIS MATERIALLY

AFFECTS THE BUDGET.

IT STAYS IN.

YOUR POINT OF ORDER IS

OVERRULED.

AT WHICH TIME THAT PERSON

COULD SAY, I APPEAL THE

RULING OF THE CHAIR.

AT WHICH TIME ONE OF THE

REPUBLICAN SENATORS CAN

SAY, I MOVE TO TABLE THE

APPEAL OF THE RULING OF

THE CHAIR, WHICH TAKES

PRIORITY OVER EVERYTHING

BUT A MOTION TO ADJOURN,

NO DEBATE, AND YOU'LL MOVE

TO A VOTE RIGHT THEN ON

WHETHER TO TABLE THE

APPEAL OF THE RULING OF

THE CHAIR.

AND SINCE THERE IS A

MAJORITY OF REPUBLICANS,

WHATEVER THE VICE

PRESIDENT OR THE PRESIDENT

PRO TEM RULES WOULD BE

UPHELD AND THEY WOULD MOVE

ON.

AND WHAT WE PUT IN THERE

THAT WOULD MATERIALLY

AFFECT THE BUDGET, THAT

WOULD SAVE AMERICANS

MASSIVE DOLLARS, THAT

WOULD SURVIVE AND IT WOULD

PASS THE SENATE, AND

PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD SIGN

IT.

THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE.

AND THAT IS NOT WHAT WE

HAVE DONE.

WE HAVE NOT KEPT OUR WORD

HERE.

Gordon: CONGRESSMAN,

IF IT DOESN'T GO THROUGH

THE RECONCILIATION

PROCESS, AREN'T YOU THEN

IN THE POTENTIAL FOR

FILIBUSTER, AND YOU DON'T

HAVE 60 VOTES IN THE

SENATE TO PASS IT.

AND AT THAT POINT IN TIME

OBAMACARE IS GOING TO STAY

AS THE LAW OF THE LAND.

AREN'T YOU WORRIED ABOUT

THAT?

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT

ADDING MORE FEDERAL POWER,

ADDING MORE FEDERAL

DOLLARS, GIVING MORE

RESTRICTION IN THE

SHORT-TERM, MORE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT POWER IN THE

SHORT-TERM, AND THEN BEING

PROMISED, REMEMBER, THIS

WILL GO AWAY PROBABLY IN

FIVE YEARS.

THAT IS NOT WHAT I'VE

EXPERIENCED IN MY 12

YEARS.

WHEN A FEDERAL PROGRAM

STARTS, AS RONALD REAGAN

SAID, THAT'S THE CLOSEST

THING ON EARTH TO ETERNAL

LIFE, WHEN YOU CREATE A

FEDERAL PROGRAM.

AND I'VE SEEN IT

FIRSTHAND.

I CANNOT BE BOUGHT OFF BY

ASSURANCES THAT WE'LL HAVE

LESS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

FOR THE FIRST TIME IF WE

JUST TRUST MORE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT IN THE

SHORT-TERM.

THAT'S NOT A SOLUTION.

THIS IS NOT WHAT WE

PROMISED.

Gordon: ALL RIGHT.

I'LL LEAVE IT AT THAT.

THAT IS A GOOD BOTTOM

LINE.

CONGRESSMAN, THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR

HAVING ME, GORDON.

Gordon: I E HOP HOPE YOU

WERE ABLE TO FOLLOW

THROUGH ALL OF THAT.

THE RECONCILIATION PROCESS

IS A BIG DEAL.

IT GETS YOU OUT OF ANY

KIND OF FILIBUSTER.

THE NEWS IS THAT THE

REPUBLICANS DON'T HAVE THE

VOTE IN THE SENATE TO GET

IT THROUGH A FILIBUSTER

PROCESS.

IF IT DOESN'T GO THROUGH

HIS WAY, YOU'RE GOING TO

SEE OBAMACARE STAY AS THE

LAW OF THE LAND.

AND THE PREDICTION ON THAT

IS THERE ARE GOING TO BE

MASSIVE INCREASES IN THE

PREMIUMS FOR THOSE WHO ARE

IN THAT PROGRAM.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

INSURANCE COMPANIES BAIL

OUT OF THE EXCHANGES.

THE EXCHANGES ARE THEN

GOING TO FAIL.

AND THAT WILL BE A VERY

INTERESTING TIME IN

AMERICA.

AND WE'RE ALL GOING TO

HAVE FRONT ROW SEATS.

I KNOW WE GOT LOST IN THE

PARLIAMENTARIAN RULES, BUT

THAT IS THE PROCESS HERE.

THAT IS HOW HARD IT IS TO

GET ANYTHING THROUGH BOTH

THE CONGRESS AND THE

SENATE.

THE FRAMERS INTENDEDED IT INTENDED IT

THAT WAY.

THEY INTENDED IT TO BE

HARD TO PASS THINGS

BECAUSE THEY ALL

UNDERSTOOD ONCE SOMETHING

BECOMES THE LAW OF THE

LAND, IT IS VERY DIFFICULT

TO CHANGE.

> WHAT'S YOUR TAKE-AWAY

FROM ALL OF THAT?

Terry: MY QUESTION

IS, AND I THINK PROBABLY A

LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FEELING

THIS, OKAY, IF THE COUNT

IS NOT WHAT IT NEEDS TO BE

AND OBAMACARE STAYS THE

LAW OF THE LAND, WHAT'S

THE FUTURE?

CAN THEY COME BACK AT THIS

AGAIN SOMEWHERE DOWN THE

ROAD WITH A BETTER BILL?

Gordon: WELL, IF THEY

PROPOSE A NEW BILL AND

THAT NEW BILL MAKES

EVERYONE ON THE REPUBLICAN

CAUCUS AND REPUBLICAN

PARTY HAPPY, IT PASSES

CONGRESS, BUT THEN IT IS

GOING TO FACE THE

FILIBUSTER IN THE SENATE.

AND THAT WON'T BE PART OF

THE BUDGET RECONCILIATION

PROCESS.

YOU CAN'T GET IT PASSED

WITH 51 VOTES.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE FACED

WITH A FILIBUSTER.

SO THEY'RE STUCK.

Terry: THEY ARE

STUCK.

Gordon: AND THEY'RE

STUCK WITH THEIR OWN

RULES.

Terry: AND PEOPLE,

LIKE MR. GOMER, ARE STUCK

AS WELL.

BECAUSE IF YOU'RE NOT

WILLING TO PUT YOUR NAME

ON THE LINE THAT IS

PASSING MUSTER AS

PROMISED, WHAT DO YOU DO?

Gordon: THE REAL

TRAGEDY IS, IF YOU'RE PART

OF THE OBAMACARE SYSTEM,

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?

HOW DO YOU GET HEALTH

INSURANCE AND HOW WILL

THAT BE AFFORDABLE?

THAT IS A TRAIN WRECK WE

CAN ALL SEE COMING.

THE EXCHANGES HAVE ALREADY

FAILED.

AND YOU ALREADY SEE

DEMOCRATS SAYING IT.

FORMER PRESIDENT CLINTON

WAS SAYING IT DURING THE

CAMPAIGN.

THE PREDICTIONS ARE ALL

THERE.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

FAILURE OF THAT SYSTEM.

WE'RE INTO HOW DO WE

GOVERN A DIVIDED NATION.

IT IS SO POLARRIZED RIGHT POLARIZED RIGHT

NOW, I DON'T SEE MUCH HOPE

OF GETTING THINGS THROUGH.

> IN OTHER NEWS, BRITISH

AUTHORITIES HAVE MADE MORE

ARRESTS IN CONNECTION WITH

THAT DEADLY TERRORIST

ATTACK IN LONDON.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

John: THAT'S RIGHT,

GORDON.

TWO MORE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AFTER

THE ATTACK THAT KILLED

FOUR PEOPLE NEAR THE

BRITISH PARLIAMENT ON

WEDNESDAY.

A COUNTER-TERRORISM

COMMANDER THERE CALLED THE

ARRESTS SIGNIFICANT, BUT

NO ADDITIONAL DETAILS HAVE

BEEN RELEASED.

THE SUSPECT HAS BEEN

IDENTIFIED AS 52-YEAR-OLD

KHALID MASOOD.

HE PLOWED THROUGH

PEDESTRIANS BEFORE

SMASHING INTO A RAILING

OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT.

HE THEN RAN FROM HIS CAR

AND WAS SHOT AND KILLED BY

POLICE.

> SENATE MINORITY LEADER

CHUCK SCHUMER HAS SET UP A

FILIBUSTER AGAINST THE

PRESIDENT'S NOMINEE FOR

THE SUPREME COURT.

HE ANNOUNCED HIS

OPPOSITION TO JUDGE NEIL

GORSUCH ON THURSDAY,

SAYING CHANGING THE SENATE

RULES TO CONFIRM HIM IS

NOT THE RIGHT ANSWER.

IF THIS NOMINEE CANNOT

EARN 60 VOTES, A BAR MET

BY EACH OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S NOMINEES AND

GEORGE BUSH'S LAST TWO

NOMINEES, THE ANSWER ISN'T

TO CHANGE THE RULES.

IT'S TO CHANGE THE

NOMINEE.

John: NORMALLY 60

VOTES ARE REQUIRED TO

CONFIRM A SUPREME COURT

NOMINEE.

BUT REPUBLICANS HAVE

TALKED ABOUT CHANGING THE

RULES AND USING THE

NUCLEAR OPTION, WHICH

WOULD ALLOW THEM TO

CONFIRM GORSUCH WITH JUST

51 VOTES.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING

THEY'RE ALREADY DOING TO

CONFIRM LOWER FEDERAL

COURT JUDGES.

Gordon: THAT'S

BECAUSE OF A RULE CHANGE

THAT WAS DONE BY THE

DEMOCRATS JUST THREE YEARS

AGO.

THEY CHANGED THE RULES FOR

LOWER COURT NOMINEES, TO

GET THINGS THROUGH THE

SENATE WITHOUT 60 VOTES.

SO THEY LEFT IN PLACE

SUPREME COURT NOMINEES.

AND WE'LL SEE, WILL JUDGE

GORSUCH GO DOWN IN HISTORY

AS THE ONE THAT GOT RID OF

THAT, AND THE NUCLEAR

OPTION WAS IMPOSED AND THE

SENATE RULES CHANGED.

I THINK THIS IS PAYBACK

FOR JUDGE GARLAND.

HE NEVER EVEN GOT TO A

HEARING.

AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE JUST

LOOKING FOR A SCALP TO PUT

ON THE WALL TO SAY, OKAY,

THIS IS TIT-FOR-TAT.

AND WE'LL SEE.

WASHINGTON, BOY, HAS IT

EVER GOTTEN CRAZY UP

THERE.

WE'RE ALL GOING TO PAY THE

PRICE HERE.

OUR NATION IS DIVIDED.

LET ME ENCOURAGE YOU,

PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICA.

PRAY FOR OUR LEADERSHIP.

CAN WE BE ONE NATION UNDER

GOD, INDEVISABLE.

THE DIVISION SEEMS SO

SHARP.

CAN WE EVER COME TOGETHER

AND ACTUALLY SAY, CAN WE

GOVERN OURSELVES?

CAN WE COME TOGETHER FOR

THE GOOD OF THE NATION?

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, THE

AMAZING UNCOVERING OF THE

ORIGINAL CITY OF DAVID.

ANCIENT JERUSALEM LIES

OUTSIDE OF WHAT WE CALL

TODAY THE OLD CITY.

SHE IS STARTING TO SHARE

WHAT SHE LOOKED LIKE TO

US.

SO YOU CAN SEE HOW

PROPHECY IS FILLING UP AS

WE GO.

Terry: STAY TUNED AS

WE EXPLORE THIS FUSION OF

ARCHEOLOGY AND PROPHECY.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Gordon: WHEN PEOPLE

VISIT JERUSALEM'S OLD

CITY, THEY MAY THINK IT IS

THE SAME PLACE KING DAVID

SET UP AS HIS CAPITAL SOME

3,000 YEARS AGO.

WELL, THAT'S NOT EXACTLY

THE CASE.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL SHOWS

US, ARCHEOLOGISTS ARE

UNCOVERING THE ORIGINAL

CITY AND TELLING AN

AMAZING STORY.

Chris: SO WE'RE

LOOKING AT THE CITY OF

DAVID FROM HERE, ALL THE

WAY DOWN.

YES.

Chris: ANARIA HAMIN

SERVES AS THE OUTREACH

COORDINATOR FOR THE CITY

OF DAVID.

WELCOME TO THE CITY OF

DAVID.

UP UNTIL 150 YEARS AGO,

EVERYBODY THOUGHT THAT THE

ANCIENT BIBLICAL JERUSALEM

LIES WITHIN THE CONFINES

OF THE OLD CITY RIGHT

BEHIND YOU, WITHIN THE

WALLS THERE.

THE QUESTION IS: WHAT

HAPPENED 150 YEARS AGO?

AND WHERE IS THE ANCIENT

BIBLICAL JERUSALEM?

Chris: AND SHE HELPED

ANSWER THAT QUESTION BY

EXPLAINING HOW THE CITY OF

DAVID LAY HIDDEN FOR ALL

THESE YEARS.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

CHARLES SAW SOMETHING.

WHEN CHARLES SAW THIS, HE

KNEW HE REDISCOVERED THE

ANCIENT BIBLICAL

JERUSALEM.

Chris: WAS THIS THE

BEGINNING, SORT OF, OF THE

UNVEILING OF THE CITY OF

DAVID IN THE MODERN TIME?

EXACTLY.

BECAUSE NOW WE HAVE A

2,000-YEAR PERIOD, WHERE

NOBODY KNEW WHERE THE

ANCIENT CITY WAS.

MOST PEOPLE THOUGHT, WHEN

THEY CAME, WHAT THEY SAW

IN THE OLD SEA CITY, THAT WAS

THE ANCIENT CITY.

BUT, WAIT A MINUTE.

THE ANCIENT JERUSALEM LIES

OUTSIDE OF WHAT WE CALL

TODAY THE OLD CITY.

Chris: THE DISCOVERY

OF THIS TUNNEL SYSTEM

VISUALLY TELLS HOW KING

DAVID CAPTURED THE CITY

AND BRINGS THE BIBLE TO

LIFE.

WHEN WE SAW THIS, WE

SUDDENLY SAW EXACTLY HOW

THE PICTURE CAME TOGETHER.

AND MANY TIMES, WHEN WE DO

EXCAVATIONS, WE ALSO DON'T

KNOW WHAT WE'RE LOOKING

AT.

WE HAVE TO GO TO THE

BIBLE.

AND SO IT IS THE BIBLE AND

THE EXCAVATIONS, GIVING US

THE FULL PICTURE OF

ANCIENT JERUSALEM.

Chris: FURTHER DOWN,

THEY FOUND WHERE MEN

BECAME KINGS.

MOST OF THE KINGS OF

ISRAEL WERE ANOINTED WHERE

WE'RE STANDING RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE STANDING AT THE

PLACE OF ANOINTING.

ISAIAH SAID, IF YOU WILL

DRAW FORTH WATER FROM THE

SPRINGS OF SALVATION.

Chris: IN FACT, THE

CITY OF DAVID ECHOES WITH

THE CITIES OF THE BIBLE.

WHEN WE GET TO DAVID,

SOLOMON, ISAIAH, WHEN HE

WAS GIVING HIS PROPHECIES

ON THESE VERY WALLS

HERE -- AND JEREMIAH,

ALSO, WHEN HE HAD TO SPEAK

ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION THAT

WAS LUMING OVER

JERUSALEM -- ALL OF THOSE

THINGS WERE HAPPENING

EXACTLY WHERE WE'RE

STANDING RIGHT NOW.

Chris: MORE THAN 10

YEARS AGO, THEY DISCOVERED

ANOTHER BIBLICAL SITE, THE

POOL OF SILOHIM.

IT IS THE PLACE WHERE

JESUS HEALED THE BLIND MAN

AND WHERE THE JEWISH

PEOPLE WOULD GATHER FOR

THE FEAST OF THE LORD.

THREE TIMES A YEAR, ALL

OF THE MEN HAD TO COME

HERE, IN THE POOL, AND

FROM THERE GET READY TO GO

TO TEMPLE MOUNT.

AND THIS IS THE WALK THAT

ALL OF THE PILGRIMS CAN DO

AGAIN WHEN THEY COME TO

JERUSALEM.

Chris: SHE SAYS THIS

FINAL ASSENT AS A MERGER

BETWEEN ARCHEOLOGY AND

PROPHECY.

SOMETHING AMAZING IS

HAPPENING.

THEY'RE SAYING WE ARE

AGAIN EXCAVATING THIS

ROAD, AND THE PROPHECY IS

BEING FULFILLED.

IT SAYS, WE REMOVE THE

STONES FOR MY PEOPLE'S

RETURN.

Chris: ONE ONGOING

EXCAVATION IS THIS TUNNEL

LEADING FROM THE POOL OF

SILOAM TO THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

IT OPENS A DOOR TO THE

FUTURE.

ONE OF THE CITY OF DAVID'S

MOST AMBITIOUS PROJECTS IS

THIS EXCAVATION CALLED THE

GIVATI, IT IS AS IF THE

ROCKS ARE CRYING OUT.

YOU CAN SEE HOW HE

SLOWLY DISAPPEARED FROM

CIVILIZATION BECAUSE ONE

CITY WAS BUILT UPON THE

OTHER.

YOU COULD SEE HOW THE CITY

COULD HAVE LOST HOPE,

THINKING, WHOEVER IS GOING

TO DISCOVER ME AGAIN.

UNTIL GOD SAYS, IN A TIME

OF FAVOR, NOTHING CAN STOP

IT.

Chris: HAMIN SEES

PROPHECY UNFOLDING.

WE'RE STARTING TO SEE

IN THE LAST DECADE, THE

BLUEPRINTS.

SHE IS STARTING TO SHARE

WHAT SHE LOOKED LIKE TO US

AGAIN.

SHAKE OFF YOUR DUST,

ARISE, TAKE YOUR RIGHTFUL

PLACE, JERUSALEM.

IF YOU SEE THE EXCAVATIONS

HERE ON A DAILY BASIS, YOU

CAN SEE THE BUCKETS FLYING

AND YOU CAN SEE THE DUST

LITERALLY FLYING ABOUT.

Chris: SHE CONSIDERS

HER ROLE IN THE CITY OF

DAVID A PRIVILEGE.

I CALL MYSELF THE

LUCKIEST PERSON IN THE

WORLD, THE LUCKIEST GIRL

IN THE WORLD.

BECAUSE I HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE WHAT

WE SEE HERE AND TELL THE

PEOPLE ABOUT THE CITY OF

DAVID, ABOUT THE ANCIENT

JERUSALEM.

AND EVERY PERSON THAT IS

PASSIONATE ABOUT JERUSALEM

AND SERIOUS ABOUT BIBLICAL

PROPHECY NEEDS TO KNOW

THIS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, THE

CITY OF DAVID, JERUSALEM.

Gordon: WE ARE

LITERALLY SEEING PROPHECY

UNFOLD BEFORE OUR EYES.

WHAT FOR GENERATIONS, WHAT

IS THOUGHT IMPOSSIBLE, HAS

BECOME POSSIBLE IN OUR

GENERATION.

AND REALIZE IT'S ALMOST 70

YEARS.

IT HAS JUST BEEN THAT ONE

LIFETIME SINCE THE

FOUNDATION OF THE MODERN

STATE OF ISRAEL IN 1948.

AND THIS YEAR WE CELEBRATE

THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF

THE REUNIFICATION OF

JERUSALEM.

AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY

THAT HAS BEEN.

FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO

COME BACK TO THEIR

HOMELAND AND FULFILL WHAT

WAS WRITTEN BY THE

PROPHETS OF THE OLD

TESTAMENT, IT'S

MIRACULOUS.

AND TO SEE JERUSALEM ONCE

AGAIN UNIFIED, NO LONGER

TRODDEN UNDER THE FOOT OF

THE GENTILES, WHAT AN

INCREDIBLE THING.

AND WE NEED TO CELEBRATE

IT.

AND WE WANT TO GET

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD INFORMED.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE

ON THIS, THIS 50th

ANNIVERSARY IS JUST TWO

MONTHS AWAY.

JERUSALEM REUNIFICATION

DAY.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS.

IT IS MAY 23, AND THEN

KICKING OFF ON JUNE 5,

THAT'S A MONDAY, THE

CELEBRATION OF THE SIX-DAY

WAR.

HOW ISRAEL RECAPTURED,

REUNIFIED THE CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT

OF INFORMATION ON THIS.

THIS IS JUST THE FIRST

STORY.

HOW PROPHECY IS BEING

FULFILLED RIGHT BEFORE OUR

EYES.

Terry: WHAT

PRIVILEGE, TO LIVE IN A

DAY WHERE WE GET TO SEE

THAT.

ASTONISHING.

> WELL, COMING UP, A

FRESHMAN ATTENDS A PARTY

HIS FIRST NIGHT OF

COLLEGE, AND A FIGHT

BREAKS OUT.

I HEARD A SCREAM.

AND GUNSHOTS ARE GOING

OFF.

I TOOK THESE STEPS, AND MY

LEG GAVE OUT.

AND I WAS LITERALLY IN A

POOL OF MY OWN BLOOD.

Terry: HOW THIS

TRAGIC SHOOTING SETS THE

STAGE FOR A MIRACLE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Terry: WHEN THE PHONE

RANG IN MANDY HALL'S HOTEL

ROOM, SHE COULD NEVER HAVE

IMAGINED WHAT SHE WAS

ABOUT TO HEAR.

EARLIER THAT DAY, SHE AND

HER HUSBAND, MATTHEW, HAD

JUST GOTTEN THEIR SON,

GARRETT, SETTLED IN HIS

COLLEGE DORM ROOM.

AND NOW THE VOICE ON THE

OTHER END OF THE PHONE WAS

SAYING, YOUR SON HAS BEEN

IN AN ACCIDENT.

I HEARD A SCREAM AND

GUNSHOTS WERE GOING OFF.

I TOOK THREE STEPS, AND MY

LEG GAVE OUT.

AND I WAS LITERALLY IN A

POOL OF MY OWN BLOOD.

AND I WAS CRYING OUT TO

GOD, JUST PLEASE SAVE ME.

Reporter: GARRETT

HALL WAS A STAR ATHLETE IN

HIGH SCHOOL, ESPECIALLY

FOOTBALL.

HE HOPED IT WOULD BE HIS

TICKET TO A COLLEGE

SCHOLARSHIP.

I WAS MOSTLY LIVING TO

PLAY FOOTBALL.

I GREW UP AS A KID

PLAYING.

AND IT WAS KIND OF

INSTILLED IN MY HEAD, HEY,

THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO

DO.

TO WATCH MY SON PLAY

FOOTBALL WAS VERY

EXCITING.

I LIVED FOR FRIDAY

NIGHTS.

I LOVED WATCHING HIM DO

WHAT HE LOVED.

Reporter: WHEN

GARRETT DIDN'T GET A

SCHOLARSHIP, HE ENROLLED

IN A PREP SCHOOL IN NORTH

CAROLINA.

AFTER THAT, I WANTED TO

GO TO A DIVISION TWO OR

DIVISION ONE SCHOOL.

I HAD BOTH KINDS OF

SCHOOLS LOOKING AT ME

GOING INTO THE PREP

SCHOOL.

Reporter: IN JULY,

GARRETT REPORTED TO SCHOOL

FOR SUMMER PRACTICES.

AFTER HELPING HIM MOVE

INTO HIS DORM, HIS FAMILY

RETURNED TO THEIR HOTEL.

WE WERE VERY EXCITED TO

SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HAD IN

STORE FOR GARRETT.

Reporter: THAT FIRST

NIGHT A TEAMMATE SUGGESTED

THEY GO TO A PARTY.

WHEN WE SHOWED UP AT

THE PARTY, I IMMEDIATELY

WAS, LIKE, I SHOULDN'T BE

HERE.

I SAW SOME THINGS I DIDN'T

WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED

WITH.

SO WE STAYED FOR ABOUT

FIVE TO 10 MINUTES AND WE

LEFT.

Reporter: OUTSIDE,

THEY STOPPED TO TALK TO A

ROOMMATE'S FRIEND, AND

MINUTES LATER A FIGHT

BROKE OUT.

I HEARD A SCREAM.

I TURNED AROUND, AND

GUNSHOTS ARE GOING OFF.

I TOOK THREE STEPS, AND MY

LEG GAVE OUT.

I COULDN'T MOVE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

GOING ON.

EVERYTHING WAS BLURRY.

I WAS LITERALLY IN A POOL

OF MY OWN BLOOD.

I LOOKED UP, AND I SAW THE

SHOOTER.

KEVIN WAS ON THE GROUND.

AND HE TOOK TWO BULLETS TO

THE CHEST.

I SAW THAT MAN TAKE HIS

LAST BREATH.

I STARTED CRYING OUT TO

GOD, SAYING, PLEASE SPARE

MY LIFE.

I CAN'T DIE.

PLEASE DON'T LET THIS BE

MY TIME.

Reporter: BY THE TIME

POLICE ARRIVED, THE

SHOOTER HAD FLED AND WAS

NEVER FOUND.

THEY DISCOVERED GARRETT IN

THE STREET, SHOT IN THE

THIGH AND BLEEDING BADLY.

THEY TOOK HIM TO THE E.R.,

WHERE THE STAFF NOTIFIED

HIS PARENTS.

WHEN WE ARRIVED AT THE

HOSPITAL, IT DIDN'T FEEL

REAL.

IT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT WAS

ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

Reporter: THE

SURGEON, DR. FRANK ARGO,

EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENED.

THE BULLET WENT AND HIT

NEAR THE BONE AND HIT THE

ARTERY AND THE VEIN.

IT SHUT THE BLOOD FLOW OFF

TO THE LOWER PART OF THE

FOOT.

A TRUE RISK OF LIMB LOSS

THAT COULD BE

LIFE-THREATENING AS WELL.

AND AT THAT POINT,

EVERYTHING JUST STOPPED.

THE ROOM JUST STARTED

SPINNING.

EVERYTHING WAS MOVING IN

SLOW MOTION.

THE FIRST THING I

WANTED TO DO AND DID WAS

PRAY.

GOD, PLEASE PUT YOUR HAND

ON MY SON AND TAKE CARE OF

HIM.

WE WERE JUST IN SHOCK.

I IMMEDIATELY STARTED

PRAYING.

Reporter: THE FAMILY

GOT TO SEE GARRETT BEFORE

SURGERY.

HE WAS LAYING ON HIS

SIDE.

ALL I COULD SEE WAS BLOOD.

IT WAS JUST POODL POOLED IN THE

BED HE WAS LAYING IN.

THAT TERRIFIED ME.

I WAS JUST PRAYING THAT

GOD WOULD HEAL HIM AND LET

HIM PLAY FOOTBALL AGAIN.

IT WAS HARD TO WALK IN

THE ROOM AND SEE MY SON

LAYING THERE.

WHEN I DID FINALLY SEE

GARRETT, AND LOOKED AT HIM

EYE TO EYE, IT GAVE ME

HOPE.

Reporter: DOCTORS

TOOK GARRETT INTO SURGERY,

UNSURE IF THEY COULD SAVE

HIS LEG.

BONE, ARTERY, NERVE,

VEIN.

HE HIT THESE TWO.

IF HE HAD GOTTEN THE

NERVE, IT IS VERY HARD TO

GET FULL FUNCTION BACK IF

THE NERVE HAS BEEN FULLY

DIVIDED.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

THE FAMILY CONTINUED TO

PRAY.

I CAN HONESTLY SAY I'VE

NEVER PRAYED SO HARD IN MY

ENTIRE LIFE.

AND I PROBABLY HAVE NEVER

CRIED THAT HARD AS WELL,

EITHER.

WE CALLED SEVERAL OF

OUR FRIENDS, FAMILY

MEMBERS, AND ASKED THEM TO

PRAY FOR GARRETT.

Reporter: AFTER FIVE

HOURS OF SURGERY, DR. ARGO

CAME OUT WITH GOOD NEWS.

THE FACT HAD HE

COMPLETELY MISSED THE

NERVE AND JUST GOT THE

ARTERY AND VEIN IS A

MIRACLE IN ITSELF.

IT WAS A HUGE RELIEF

FOR ME, HEARING THE

DOCTOR'S REPORT OF, HE

WILL BE OKAY.

THE SURGERY WENT WELL.

Reporter: AFTER A

YEAR OF REHAB, GARRETT WAS

ABLE TO TRY OUT FOR

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY AS A

WALK-ON.

TO BE HONEST WITH YOU,

I NEVER THOUGHT HE COULD

PLAY FOOTBALL AGAIN.

IF HE WOULD HAVE WALKED

NORMAL, I WOULD HAVE BEEN

HAPPY WITH THAT.

THAT'S THE TYPE OF INJURY

HE HAD.

I'VE ALWAYS HEARD OF

MIRACLES, BUT I JUST

WITNESSED ONE.

THERE IS NO SHADOW OF A

DOUBT THAT GOD ANSWERS

PRAYER.

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, THE TEAM

HAD A FULL ROSTER, AND

GARRETT DIDN'T MAKE THE

SQUAD.

GARRETT AND HIS FAMILY ARE

TAKING LIFE ONE DAY AT A

TIME.

I'M KIND OF GOING WHERE

GOD WANTS ME TO GO.

GOD, LEAD ME WHERE YOU

WANT ME TO GO.

I STILL DON'T KNOW WHY

THIS WAS ALLOWED TO

HAPPEN, BUT I DO KNOW THAT

GOD WAS THERE AND HE

INTERVENED AND SAVED

GARRETT'S LIFE THAT NIGHT.

EVERYTHING THAT GOD

TAKES YOU TO, HE IS GOING

TO TAKE YOU THROUGH IT.

YOU'RE NEVER ALONE.

AND EVERYTHING BAD THAT

HAPPENS HAS A PURPOSE.

IF I DON'T EVER PLAY

FOOTBALL AGAIN, THAT'S

FINE.

IF I ONLY REACH A COUPLE

OF PEOPLE, THAT'S FINE.

I JUST WANT TO BE AN

INSPIRATION TO OTHERS

BECAUSE I'VE LIVED IT.

AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

GET THROUGH IT JUST ON

YOUR OWN.

YOU NEED SOMETHING ELSE

THERE.

AND I'M TELLING YOU IT'S

GOD.

Terry: BOY, ISN'T

THAT THE TRUTH.

WE WERE NOT CREATED TO GET

THERE ON OUR OWN.

WE WERE CREATED FOR

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ONE

WHO CREATED THE UNIVERSE.

AND HE DOESN'T MAKE

MISTAKES.

HE KNOWS YOU BY NAME.

HE KNOWS THE NUMBER OF

HAIRS ON YOUR HEAD.

MANY OF YOU RIGHT NOW ARE

SAYING, I NEED GOD TO

INTERVENE IN MY SITUATION,

IN MY CIRCUMSTANCE.

AND WE WANT TO TAKE SOME

TIME TO PRAY WITH YOU,

BUT, FIRST, LET US

ENCOURAGE ARE MORE.

DANA HAD BEEN DEALING WITH

PROBLEMS AND PAINS IN HER

LEFT KNEE FOR MANY YEARS,

EVEN NEEDING TO USE A CANE

TO WALK.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM ON MARCH 3 OF THIS

YEAR, AND GORDON, YOU

SAID, "THERE IS A WOMAN

WHO HAS A LEFT KNEE THAT

IS CAUSING YOU A GREAT

DEAL OF PAIN AND TROUBLE.

AND YOU'RE WONDERING, CAN

I TRUST WHAT JUST HAPPENED

TO ME?

AND THE ANSWER IS, YES,

YOU CAN.

YES, YOU CAN."

SHE GOT UP AND WAS ABLE TO

WALK AROUND WITH NO

PROBLEMS, DIDN'T HAVE TO

USE HER CANE AND, AND NO

PROBLEMS.

PRAISE GOD.

Gordon: IRENE, FROM

ALABAMA, STUBBED HER TOE

OVER A YEAR AGO.

SHE KNEW IT WAS BROKEN AND

INFECTED.

IT HAD TURNED BLACK.

SHE COULDN'T GO TO THE

DOCTOR BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T

HAVE MEDICAL INSURANCE,

HAD NO MONEY TO PAY FOR

TREATMENT.

SHE PRAYED AND HOPED FOR A

MIRACLE.

WELL, SHE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND TERRY

SAID, "SOMEONE, YOUR LARGE

TOE ON YOUR RIGHT FOOT

HASN'T HEALED, BUT IT IS

GOING TO HEAL NOW IN

JESUS' NAME."

WELL, IRENE RECEIVED THE

WORD.

AND THEN SHE TOOK OFF HER

SOCK, AND TO HER SURPRISE,

HER TOE HAD BEEN INSTANTLY

HEALED.

THERE WAS NO MORE PAIN,

AND THE COLOR WAS BACK TO

NORMAL.

AND THAT IS A MIRACLE.

MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN

TODAY.

WE LIVE IN A DAY WHERE

PROPHECY IS BEING

FULFILLED.

AND HERE IS ONE OF THE

GREAT PROMISES -- YOU CAN

ALSO LOOK AT PROPHECY AS

PROMISES.

HERE IS ONE OF THE GREAT

PROMISES: THAT THESE SIGNS

SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT

BELIEVE.

THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON

THE SICK AND THEY SHALL

RECOVER.

ISN'T THAT A WONDERFUL

PROMISE?

ALL IT TAKES ON YOUR PART

IS TO BELIEVE.

THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

JUST BELIEVE THAT WHAT HE

HAS PROMISED, HE'LL DO.

AND THEN THERE IS AN ACT

INVOLVED.

LAY HANDS ON THE SICK, AND

THEY SHALL RECOVER.

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL?

LET'S DO THAT.

IF YOU HAVE AN AREA OF THE

BODY THAT NEEDS HEALING,

JUST IN AN ACT OF FAITH,

LAY YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY.

AND TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO AGREE.

THERE IS ANOTHER WONDERFUL

VERSE: "WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING,

IT SHALL BE DONE."

SO LET'S PRAY, LET'S

BELIEVE, AND LET'S LET GOD

DO ALL OF THE REST.

LORD, WE JUST COME TO YOU.

WE COME JUST AS LITTLE

CHILDREN, BELIEVING IN

WHAT DADDY HAS PROMISED.

YOU SAID IT, IT'S SETTLED.

WE BELIEVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AND WE SPEAK TO ANY DOUBT

NOW, BE GONE.

LEAVE OUR MINDS, OUR

SPIRITS, OUR HEARTS.

WE TRUST IN JESUS AND HIS

UNFAILING LOVE.

AND NOW WE LAY HANDS ON

THAT AREA OF THE BODY THAT

NEEDS HEALING.

WE SAY OUT LOUD TO IT, BE

HEALED NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AND BE RESTORED.

AND NOW I RECEIVE IT.

AND WHAT I COULDN'T DO

BEFORE, I DO NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

LAYING YOUR LEFT HAND OVER

YOUR LEFT EYE, AND YOU

HAVE A DETACHED RETINA,

AND YOU'RE PRAYING FOR

HEALING.

AND YOU'RE WONDERING, CAN

IT HAPPEN TO ME?

AND GOD IS JUST SPEAKING

DIRECTLY TO YOU RIGHT NOW.

IT JUST HAPPENED TO YOU.

OPEN THAT EYE AND REALIZE

YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED, AND

YOU'RE ABLE TO SEE

PERFECTLY.

GO GET IT TESTED, BECAUSE

IT IS GOING TO BE EVEN

BETTER THAN BEFORE THE

DETACHED RETINA.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

BETTER THAN 20/20 VISION

IN THAT EYE.

REALIZE GOD HAS JUST DONE

A COMPLETE MIRACLE FOR YOU

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: AND SOMEONE

ELSE, YOU'VE HAD SOMETHING

HAPPEN -- I'M NOT SURE

WHAT IT IS, BUT IT HAS

CAUSED PARALYSIS ON ONE

SIDE OF YOUR FACE.

AND WHEN YOU TALK, IT IS

LIKE YOUR TONGUE GETS IN

THE WAY OF YOUR TEETH.

YOU'LL KNOW THIS IS YOU

BECAUSE YOU KEEP BITING --

YOU HAVE A SORE FROM

TRYING TO TALK.

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME,

RECEIVE THE FEELING AND

THE NERVE ENDSINGS AND ALL ENDINGS AND ALL

OF THE USE OF YOUR TONGUE

BACK.

Gordon: THERE ARE

SEVERAL PEOPLE WITH JOINT

ISSUES, AND WHAT YOU

COULDN'T DO BEFORE, YOU

COULDN'T MOVE IT WITHOUT

PAIN, AND GOD IS HEALING

IT RIGHT NOW.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE, YOU

HAVE A GROWTH ON YOUR

RIGHT EAR.

YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

YOU DON'T HAVE THE MONEY

TO SEE A DOCTOR, BUT

YOU'RE CONCERNED ABOUT IT.

GOD SHARES YOUR CONCERN.

THAT GROWTH IS GOING TO

DISSOLVE, JUST GO AWAY

NOW, IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE SOME KIND OF A

BLOOD DISEASE.

IT IS NOT CANCER, BUT IT

VERY MUCH IMPACTS YOUR

LIFE.

AND YOU'RE HAVING TO TAKE

ALL KINDS OF MEDICATIONS.

GOD IS SETTING YOU FREE

FROM THAT RIGHT NOW.

JUST LIFT UP YOUR HANDS

AND RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: AND GOD WANTS

YOU TO KNOW HE'S RESTORING

YOUR OXYGEN LEVELS.

AND YOU'LL HAVE NEW ENERGY

NOW, IN JESUS' NAME.

LORD, WE THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SACRIFICE.

WE THANK YOU FOR

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE

FOR US.

WE RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE HAD A MIRACLE,

WE WANT TO SHARE IN YOUR

GOOD REPORT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

AND SAY, THIS IS WHAT

HAPPENED TO ME.

PRAYER WORKS.

AND IF YOU NEED PRAYER,

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU 24

HOURS A DAY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK

UP THE PHONE AND CALL.

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A

YOUNG GIRL LEARNS ABOUT

THE POWER OF PRAYER

THROUGH A CARTOON.

SEE HOW HER PRAYERS FOR

HER FAMILY GET ANSWERED.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A TEXAS JUDGE IS BEING

SUED BECAUSE HE ALLOWS

VOLUNTEER CHAPLAINS OF

VARIOUS FAITHS TO PRAY IN

COURT.

THE FREEDOM FOR RELIGION

FILED A LAWSUIT AGAINST

THE JUSTICE OF THE PEACE,

WAYNE MACK.

HE SAID THE COURTROOM

PRAYER AND VOLUNTEER

PRAYER AND PEOPLE ARE NOT

REQUIRED TO REMAIN FOR THE

INVOCATIONS.

> THE FLOODING IN PERU

KILLED 72 PEOPLE AND LEFT

72,000 WITHOUT SHELTER OR

DRINKING WATER.

THEY ARE MOBILIZING TRUCKS

TO TAKE STAFF AND RED

CROSS TEAMS TO REACH

ISOLATED PLACES THAT HAVE

BEEN CUT OFF FROM

RECEIVING AID.

THE EMERGENCY AID WILL GO

TO AN ESTIMATED 350

FAMILIES.

VOLUNTEERS HAVE HELPED THE

250 HOMES WERE

SUBMERSEEDED IN MUD, SOME

OF THEM DESTROYED

COMPLETELY.

"OPERATION BLESSING" BY

GOING TO ITS WEBSITE AT

ob.org.

GORDON AND TER TEENAG TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WHEN

VERONICA'S FATHER GOT

SICK, SHE AND HER MOTHER

BECAME DESPERATE.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY TO BUY EVEN A SINGLE

PILL, MUCH LESS TAKE HIM

TO A DOCTOR.

THEN ONE DAY VERY MUC DAY VERONICA SAW

AN EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK,"

AND SHE KNEW EXACTLY HOW

TO HI HELP HER FATHER.

Reporter: IT IS KNOWN

AS THE POOREST SLUM IN ALL

OF CENTRAL AMERICA.

BUT A NEW "SUPERBOOK"

CURRICULUM IS BRINGING

HOPE.

MY FAMILY IS VERY

IMPORTANT TO ME.

MY MOM AND DAD TEACH ME A

LOT OF THINGS ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

Reporter: HER DAD

SELLS FRUIT, PUSHING A

WORN-OUT TRICYCLE THROUGH

THE STREETS OF THE CITY.

EACH MONTH THEY EARN $250.

THEY WERE BARELY GETTING

BY WHEN RAFAEL GOT SICK.

I STARTED TO FEEL PAIN

ALL THROUGH MY BODY.

I HAD A TERRIBLE HEADACHE.

I SPENT THREE DAYS LYING

ON MY BACK.

I FELT SO ALONE.

AND I ASKED GOD, WHAT CAN

I DO?

I COULDN'T STAND TO SEE MY

HUSBAND SUFFERING.

BUT I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY ONE

PILL.

Reporter: AROUND THAT

TIME, VERONICA WATCHED A

"SUPERBOOK" EPISODE THAT

TAUGHT HER ABOUT PRAYER

AND TRUSTING GOD.

I PRAYED FOR MY FAMILY,

AND ASKED GOD TO HELP US.

IT WORRIED ME THAT MY

PARENTS DON'T HAVE ANY

MONEY.

Reporter: GOD

ANSWERED VERONICA'S

PRAYER.

FIRST, HER FATHER FULLY

RECOVERED.

THEN WE GOT RAFAEL SET UP

WITH A BIGGER, BETTER

CART, SO HE CAN SELL TWICE

AS MUCH EVERY DAY.

I THANK GOD FOR THIS

HELP.

THIS CART IS SO PRETTY.

I CAN GIVE VERY GOOD

SERVICE TO MY CLIENTS NOW.

AND BECAUSE OF THIS, MY

INCOME HAS RISEN ALLOT.

Reporter: VERONICA

AND HER FAMILY SAY THE

BLESSING BEGAN WITH A

SINGLE EPISODE OF

"SUPERBOOK."

THAT ONE EPISODE HELPED

HER GROW SPIRITUALLY.

AND NOW SHE PRAYS AND

TALKS TO HER FRIENDS ABOUT

GOD.

MANY GOOD THINGS

HAPPENED AFTER I WATCHED

"SUPERBOOK."

IT TAUGHT ME TO HAVE MORE

FAITH.

I PRAYED FOR MYED DAD MY DAD AND

NOW HE FEELS BETTER AND WE

HAVE FOOD.

Gordon: WHO COULD

HAVE IMAGINED THAT A

CARTOON COULD LEAD TO A

MIRACLE.

BUT THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN CHILDREN GET THE

MESSAGES OF THE BIBLE.

WHEN THEY UNDERSTAND THE

STORIES, AND THEY SAY,

WELL, IF IT CAN HAPPEN

THEN, IT CAN HAPPEN NOW.

AND THAT SIMPLE FAITH,

THAT CHILD-LIKE FAITH,

ALWAYS LEADS TO MIRACLES.

IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART

OF IT, IF YOU WANT TO BE A

STORIES OF THE BIBLE TO

THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD,

Gordon: JOINING ME

NATIONS.

BUT HE HAS ALSO MINISTERED

TO ME.

HE HAS TAUGHT ME A GREAT

DEAL ABOUT THE GIFTS OF

THE SPIRIT, AND HE IS A

DEAR FRIEND.

WELCOME BACK VERNON FALLS

FROM MALAYSIA.

IT GREATS TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

PRAISE THE LORD.

GORDON, IT IS WONDERFUL TO

SEE YOU AGAIN.

YOU'RE LOOKING GOOD.

Gordon: AND YOU'RE

LOOKING GOOD.

YOU HAVE LOST ALL KINDS OF

WEIGHT.

> TELL US ABOUT AMERICA

RIGHT NOW.

IT SEEMS WE'RE INCREDIBLY

DIVIDED, AND IT SEEMS WE

CAN'T GET OUR ACT

TOGETHER.

SO WHAT'S GOD SAY?

WELL, FOR THE BODY OF

CHRIST, IT IS BACK TO

JESUS.

BACK TO JESUS.

LOOK UNTO JESUS, WHO IS

THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF

OUR FAITH.

AND THE SCRIPTURE THAT THE

LORD GAVE US FOR THIS

PARTICULAR JEE YEAR IS JAMES

4: 8: "DRAW NEAR TO GOD

AND HE WILL DRAW NEAR TO

YOU."

AND WHAT WE MUST CONFESS

IS GOD IS CLOSE TO ME, AND

I AM CLOSE TO GOD.

AND THAT'S WHAT THE LORD

IS SAYING BACK TO JESUS.

IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS.

HE IS THE AUTHOR AND THE

FINISHER OF OUR FAITH.

HE IS THE HEALER.

HE IS THE MIRACLE WORKER.

HE IS THE ALPHA.

THERE IS ONLY ONE MEDIATOR

BETWEEN GOD AND MAN, AND

THAT IS CHRIST JESUS.

AND NO OTHER NAME GIVEN

AMONG MEN.

Gordon: ALL RIGHT.

LET ME BE THE OTHER SIDE

OF THAT.

WHEN YOU SEE HEADLINES

TODAY -- FOR ME, IT SEEMS

LIKE THINGS ARE EXCEL

RATINGACCELERATING, AND THE PACE

OF TERROR ATTACKS, UNREST,

UNCERTAINTY IN OUR

GOVERNMENT -- IT JUST

SEEMS TO BE ACCELERATING.

AND WHEN YOU SEE THESE

HEADLINES, YOU CAN'T HELP

BUT GET DISTURBED IN YOUR

SPIRIT.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

I HEAR YOU, DRAW NEAR TO

GOD.

I GO, OKAY, BUT IT IS HARD

TO DO THAT WHEN YOU'RE

LOOKING AT THESE KINDS OF

HEADLINES.

WELL, THE LORD SAID

THAT THIS PARTICULAR YEAR

IN THE WORLD, THERE WOULD

BE MORE TURMOIL IN THE

WORLD THAN THE PREVIOUS

YEAR, 2016.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS, GOD IS

GOING TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE.

AND HE IS GOING TO BLESS

HIS PEOPLE AMAZINGLY

BEAUTIFUL.

AND WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS

WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON THE

LORD.

SURE, THESE THINGS ARE

OVERWHELMING, BUT GOD IS

MORE OVERWHELMING.

AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE

THAT THE LORD HIMSELF IS

GOING TO DO THINGS.

ONE OF THE THINGS THE LORD

BROUGHT TO MIND -- I'M

SORRY I DIDN'T BRING TO

YOU -- WAS THE THE WELSH

REVIVAL.

WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO

EXPERIENCE THAT IN

DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE

UNITED STATES.

Gordon: THAT WAS AN

INCREDIBLE REVIVAL.

THAT WAS 1905, AND THEY

LITERALLY EMPTIED OUT THE

JAILS.

YES.

Gordon: THE PRISON

COURTS STOPPED FUNCTIONING

BECAUSE THERE WAS NO ONE

CHARGED WITH A CRIME.

AND THEN ON TOP OF IT, THE

DONKIES IN THE MINES AND

THE COAL MINES DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND THE DIRECTIONS

ANYMORE BECAUSE THE MEN

WEREN'T CURSING THEM.

[LAUGHTER]

Gordon: SOCIETY

CHANGED.

YEAH.

COMPLETE CHANGE.

THE BARS WERE EMPTIED, AND

THE CHURCHES WERE FULL.

NO ONE PREACHED A SERMON.

IT WAS THE LORD'S MOVE.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GETTING

READY TO EXPERIENCE HERE

IN THE UNITED STATES, THE

LORD'S MOVE.

IT WON'T BE A MAN

PREACHING.

IT WON'T BE A CONFERENCE.

IT WILL BE THE LORD'S

SOVEREIGN MOVE ON THE

NATION.

Gordon: AMEN.

WOULD YOU PRAY FOR PEOPLE

TO HAVE THAT RIGHT NOW.

SURE.

ALL RIGHT.

Gordon: JUST PRAY FOR

THEM.

LET'S DO THAT RIGHT NOW.

OKAY.

LIFT UP YOUR HANDS TO THE

LORD, THOSE OF YOU WHO CAN

LIFT YOUR HANDS.

HEAVENLY FATHER, IN THE

PRECIOUS NAME OF JESUS,

THE NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME,

WE GLORIFY YOU.

WE MAGNIFY YOU.

AND, LORD, WE ASK RIGHT

NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

THAT YOU TOUCH THE HEARTS

OF PEOPLE WHERE THEY WILL

HUNGER FOR YOU AND THE

THINGS OF YOU.

WE ASK RIGHT NOW, LORD,

FOR A SPIRIT OF REVIVAL,

YOUR REVIVAL, THAT YOU

REVIVE US WITH YOUR WORD,

THAT YOU REVIVE US WITH

YOUR SPIRIT, THAT YOU

REVIVE US IN EVERY AREA OF

OUR PARTICULARLY LIVES.

AND WE THANK YOU, FATHER,

THAT THIS NATION WILL SEE

A NEW FIRE, AND THAT WILL

BE THE FIRE OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT RIGHT

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AND IN JESUS' NAME, WE

BREAK THE POWER OF

DARKNESS OVER THIS NATION.

AND EVERY PLACE IN THIS

NATION, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

WE LOOSE THAT ESPECIALLY SPECIAL

ANOINTING TO GO FORWARD IN

JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: AMEN.

IF YOU WANT TO HEAR MORE

FROM VERNON, WE'VE GOT

SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOU.

TONIGHT VERNON AND HIS

WIFE WILL BE JOINING ME

HERE TONIGHT, AND THE TIME

IS 6 p.m. TO 9-POINT.

9 p.m.

AND IF YOU WANT MORE OF

VERNON, WE'RE GOING TO

WEB EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW.

TO Facebook.com/700club.

AND THEN ANOTHER BONUS, ON

MONDAY, YOU CAN WATCH AN

EXTENDED INTERVIEW WITH

VERNON ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE" ON THE FREE

FORM CHANNEL.

SO THERE ARE A LOT OF

DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN GET

IT.

COME TONIGHT, I KNOW

YOU'LL BE BLESSED.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM LUKE 11:

"IF YOU, BEING EVIL, KNOW

HOW TO GIVE GOOD GIFTS TO

YOUR CHILDREN, HOW MUCH

MORE WILL YOUR HEAVENLY

FATHER GIVE THE HOLY

SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO ASK

HIM."

WHEN YOU SEE TROUBLE IN

THE WORLD, ASK FOR MORE OF

HIM.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
