WENT STRAIT STRAIGHT TO THE

DEMILITARIZED ZONE TO DELIVER

KOREA WOULD TOLERATE FURTHER

MISSILE TESTS.

WE WILL MEET ANY WEAPONS WITH

OVERWHELMING AND EFFECTIVE

RESPONSE.

DALE: PENCE'S TRIP IS TO SHOW

NORTH KOREA U.S. RESOLVE.

SOME BELIEVE CHINA COULD DIFFUSE

THE SITUATION IF THEY WANTED TO.

CHINA IS THE KEY.

THEY COULD STOP THIS BECAUSE OF

THEIR CONTROL OVER NORTH KOREAN

ECONOMY.

CHINA CAN SHUT THEM DOWN.

IF CHINA IS UNABLE TO DEAL

WITH INCOME, UNITED STATES AND

ALLIES WILL.

THERE IS AN INTERNATIONAL

CONSENSUS INCLUDING CHINESE AND

CHINESE LEADERSHIP THIS IS A

SITUATION THAT CAN'T CONTINUE.

DALE: NORTH KOREAN MISSILE

OCCASIONS INTERRUPTING THESE

SORT OF TESTS AND MAKING THEM

FAIL.

USING TOUGH RHETORIC AGAINST

NORTH KOREA.

A WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL SAID IT

OPTIONS, DALE HURD CBN NEWS.

PAT: IN OTHER NEWS, READ YOUR

BIBLE, READ YOUR PAPER, EZEKIEL

38 TALKS ABOUT GOMERS TURKEY.

TURKEY HAS TAKEN A BIG STEP WITH

A PROPHETIC IMPACT AND COULD

MAKE THE ISLAMIC PRESIDENT MORE

DANGEROUS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS MORE.

EFREM: PRESIDENT HAS BEEN

PUSHING HIS COUNTRY IN ISLAMIC

DIRECTION AND NOW HAS THE POWER.

HE IS AN AUTO CATTIC LEADER.

THOUSANDS ASKING HIM TO RESTORE

THE DEATH PENALTY.

OPPONENTS SAY IT IS ILLEGITIMATE

ILLEGITIMATE.

VOTERS SAID THEY FACED THREATS.

VOTE CHANGES CONSTITUTION

ABOLISHES OFFICE OF PRIME

MINISTER AND GIVING SWEEPING

EXECUTIVE POWERS TO THE

PRESIDENT.

PAT?

PAT: IT IS REMARKABLE HOW

THIS PROGRESSED.

YOU KNOW, TURKEY WAS DECLARED A

SECULAR STATE.

THE TURKS, GROUP CALLED YOUNG

TURKS FORMED IT.

THERE WAS A MAN NAMED KAMAL

AUTOTURK.

IT WAS CONSIDERED EUROPEAN

POWER.

WE BROUGHT IT INTO THE VARIOUS

ALLIANCES.

STILL A MEMBER OF NATO.

SUDDENLY, YOU HAVE A GUY WHO IS

A MUSLIM.

HE IS A RADICAL MUSLIM.

IF YOU SEE THE STEPS HE HAS MADE

OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS,

HE HAS WEAKENED MILITARY,

WEAKENED JUDICIARY AND CIVILIAN

GOVERNMENT AND WANTS TO

ESTABLISH HIMSELF AS AN

AUTOCRATIC ISLAMIC DICTATOR

WHICH WILL BE A THREAT TO ALL OF

US.

HE NEEDS TO BE KICKED OUT OF

NATO.

TURKEY HAS BEEN A FRIEND, A

STRONG ALLY.

THIS MAN IS TAKING IT DOWN.

READ EZEKIEL 38, LOOK FOR TERM

GOMER.

PAT A MAN SHOT AND KILLED A

FBI ASSISTING IN THE

INVESTIGATION.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FIRST

LADY CELEBRATED AT CHURCH OF

BETHESDA.

TWO YOUNGEST CHILDREN ON HAND.

PRESIDENT CALLED AMERICA A

NATION OF BELIEVERS.

MESSAGE PRAISED EASTER AS A

SACRED TIME THAT FILLS THE

SPIRIT OF OUR NATION WITH THE

FAITH OF OUR PEOPLE AND CALLED

ON AMERICANS TO HAVE FAITH IN

EACH OTHER AND TRUST IN GOD.

> CHRISTIANS CELEBRATING

EASTER IN THE HOLY LAND.

MANY WENT TO GARDEN TOMB.

THOUSANDS OF OTHERS FLOCKED TO

JERUSALEM CHURCH OF THE HOLY

SEPULCHRE.

CHRIS MITCHELL SHOWS US THE

FIRST STEP TO PRESERVE THE PLACE

WHERE MANY BELIEVE JESUS ROSE

FROM THE DEAD.

RESTORERS HAVE WORKED FOR

NEARLY A YEAR.

THIS IS A HISTORIC MOMENT

AFTER THE COMMON AGREEMENT AFTER

THE COMMUNITIES.

PROFESSOR OVERSAW THE

PROJECT.

IT IS A GREAT CHALLENGE.

IT IS STILL ON THE CHALLENGE.

WE HAD TO STRUCTURALLY ASSURE

THE STABILITY OF THE MONUMENT.

LAST RESTORATION TOOK PLACE

MORE THAN 100 YEARS AGO.

IT WASN'T UNTIL THEY BEGAN THE

WORK UNTIL THEY REALIZED HOW

DANGEROUS IT WAS.

IN FACT, IT WAS ON THE VERGE

OF COLLAPSE.

SCAFFOLDING HAPPEN BEEN THERE

OVER 50 YEARS.

BRITISHED BUILD THE STAFF

FOLDING IN 1947.

THIS IS A COMPLETE

TRANSFORMATION OF THE MONUMENT.

IT IS NOW WHAT IT WAS INTENDED

TO BE FOR THE PEOPLE OF TODAY.

CBN NEWS GOT A RARE

OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE OUR AUDIENCE

INSIDE THE EDIKULE.

BENEATH THIS MARBLE SLAB THEY

BELIEVE IS THE EMPTY TOMB WHERE

JESUS CHRIST WAS BURIED AND ROSE

FROM THE DEAD.

THIS TOMB IS SPECIAL, REALLY,

SOMETHING SPECIAL.

NOT BECAUSE OF -- BECAUSE OF THE

FAITH WE HAVE IN JESUS.

HE DIED, HE WAS BURIED IN THIS

TOMB AND HE WAS RESURRECTED.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE WHERE

JESUS WAS IS LIFE CHANGING.

I COULD NOT ENVISION IT BEING

THIS WONDERFUL TO HAVE THE

FEELING THAT JESUS WAS HERE.

IT IS VERY MOVING, VERY, VERY

SPECIAL AND I AM SHARING IT WITH

MY DAD.

I DON'T -- I CAN'T DESCRIBE IT.

THIS WILL LIKELY LEAD TO MORE

WORK INSIDE THE CHURCH.

UNDER THE EDIKULE THEY FOUND THE

GROUND SO UNSTABLE SIT COULD

COLLAPSE.

THEY HOPE FURTHER RESTORATION

WILL MAKE IT MORE STABLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CHURCH OF THE

HOLY SEPULCHRE.

EFREM: MORE WORK TO BE DONE,

PAT?

PAT: I HAVE BEEN TO THE

GARDEN TOMB.

THAT SO CLOSELY CORRESPONDS WITH

THE BIBLE.

YOU LOOK UP FROM THERE.

HERE IS THE PLACE OF THE SKULL.

YOU CAN SEE THE SKULL IN THE

BACKGROUND.

THERE IS A GARDEN, THAT IS WHAT

THE BIBLE SAYS.

THERE WAS A GARDEN JUST OFF THE

PLACE WHERE JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED.

THERE WAS A TOMB WHERE NOBODY

ENTERED THAT WAS CUT OUT OF THE

ROCK FOR A RICH MAN.

I HAVE BEEN THERE.

SEEN IT.

HAD CEREMONIES IN THE GARDEN

TOMB.

SO HELP HE, I THINK THAT IS THE

REAL ONE.

HOWEVER, MANY, MANY BELIEVERS

THINK THAT THE CHURCH OF THE

ANNUNCIATION WHATEVER IT IS

CALLED IS THE REAL ONE.

WE'LL SEE.

ANYHOW.

NICE RESTORATION IS GOOD.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT IS WHERE

THE HOLINESS IS.

EFREM?

EFREM: OPERATION BLESSING IS

ON THE GROUND TO HELP TWO

CHURCHES.

STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS ARE

VISITING BRINGING EASTER FLOWERS

AND GIFTS AND JOINED PRIESTS IN

PRAYING.

MANY KILLED WERE MEN LEAVING

BEHIND FAMILIES IN NEED OF

SUPPORT.

OPERATION BLESSING IS PROVIDING

FOOD FOR 12 OF THE NEEDIEST

FAMILIES AND LOOKING FOR WAYS TO

HELP WITH MEDICAL BILLS.

MINISTRY HELPED OTHER PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS IN THAT REGION, PAT?

PAT: OPERATION BLESSING IS

EVERYWHERE.

IT WAS SO TRAGIC.

ON EASTER, PRAYING, PALM SUNDAY,

WHEREVER IT WAS.

THEY WERE IN CHURCH PRAYING UNTO

THEIR LORD.

THESE MUSLIMS, THESE ISLAMIC

PEOPLE SENT THESE TERRORISTS IN

THERE, TERRORISTS BLEW

THEMSELVES UP AND TOOK MANY

LIVES.

IT WAS SO TERRIBLE TO FIND

PEOPLE SO FILLED WITH HATE.

ONE DAY WILL COME TO THE POINT

WHERE WE WILL LOVE EACH OTHER.

ISN'T THERE YET.

TERRY?

TERRY: MODERN HEROS OF THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH, MOST ARE FORMER

MUSLIMS.

NOT EVEN ISIS CAN STOP THESE

BELIEVERS FROM QUOTE, STANDING

IN THE FIRE.

PAT: MIDDLE EAST CHRISTIANS

STANDING IN THE CENTER OF A

BLAZING INFERNO OF ISLAMIC EVIL.

THEY ARE RISKING THEIR LIVES NO

MATTER HOW HOT THE FIRE GETS.

REPORTER: MILLIONS OF MIDDLE

EAST CHRISTIANS EXPERIENCE

BRUTAL PERSECUTION FOR THEIR

FAITH EVERYDAY.

IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS, GROWING

NUMBER OF FEARLESS FOLLOWERS OF

JESUS CHRIST IS RISKING THEIR

OWN LIVES TO SHARE THE GOSPEL.

SOME ARE FORMER MUSLIMS, SOME

WERE ONCE TERRORISTS.

TOM DOYLE TELLS THEIR AMAZING

TRY STORIES IN A NEW BOOK

"STANDING IN THE FIRE COURAGEOUS

CHRISTIANS LIVING IN FRIGHTENING

TIMES."

PAT: BOOK IS A SMALL ONE.

IT HAS A COVER OF A FIRE ON IT

STANDING IN THE FIRE, TOM DOYLE

WRITTEN A BOOK, AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

GOD BLESS YOU.

PAT GREAT TO BE WITH YOU,

REAL HONOR.

PAT: WHAT STANDS OUT IN THESE

STORIES?

WHAT STANDS OUT THIS IS THE

COUNTER STORY WHEN WE LOOK AT

ALL THE TERRORISM WE ARE SEEING

MUSLIMS COME TO FAITH IN CHRIST

FASTER THAN EVER BEFORE.

IN FACT SPECIALISTS THAT KEEP

TRACK, IN THE LAST 10-15 YEARS,

MORE MUSLIMS HAVE COME TO FAITH

IN CHRIST THAN IN 14TH CENTURIES

OF ISLAM.

PAT: COME ON, WHAT ACCOUNTS

FOR IT?

IT IS LIKE HE IS RUNNING A

SPECIAL ON MUSLIMS, COMING TO

CHRIST RAPIDLY.

THERE ARE A LOT OF DREAMS.

I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT MUSLIMS

HAVING DREAMS AND SEEING ISLAM

FOR WHAT IT IS AND BELIEVERS IN

THE MIDST OF THE FIRE.

PAT: WHAT ARE THEY SEEING

ABOUT ISLAM?

IT IS NOT KOSHER TO CRITICIZE

SOMEBODY'S RELIGION.

ISLAM ISN'T RELIGION, IS IT?

IT ISN'T.

I THINK SO MANY OF THE MUSLIMS

ARE HELPLESS CAUGHT INTO IT,

BORN INTO IT.

WE KNOW 60% OF MUSLIMS GLOBALLY

DON'T PRACTICE.

REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT IS IN THE

KORAN.

THEY ARE FRUSTRATED.

YOU HAVE JUXTAPOSE BELIEVERS IN

SYRIA WILLING TO DIE ON CROSSES.

THEY SEE NOTHING BUT LOVE.

IT IS ATTRACTING THEM.

PAT: CAN YOU REMEMBER A STORY

THAT WOULD TOUCH PEOPLE'S LIVES.

NITO WAS IN THE ISLAMIC

STATE.

THEY PUT THE ARABIC NOON ON

THEIR HOMES.

PART OF THE ISLAMIC STATE.

GOD WAS WORKING ON HIM.

PAT, HE WALKED AROUND A CORNER

IN MOSUL AND SAW THREE

CHRISTIANS HANGING ON CROSSES

AND SHOCKED TO SEE THIS AS AN

ISLAMIC STATE MEMBER.

PAT: THEY ACTUALLY CRUCIFIED

THEM?

THEY DID.

YES.

PAT: FOR DOING WHAT,

BELIEVING IN JESUS?

JUST FOLLOWING JESUS.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT?

HE STOOD THERE AND WATCHED.

ONE OF THE BELIEVERS MINUTES

FROM DEATH SMILED AT HIM.

SMILED AT HIM.

ALSO HE HEARD THEM SINGING Z

PRAISES TO JESUS.

HE SAID HE WANTED TO GO AND END

HIS LIFE.

HE COULDN'T BELIEVE HE STOOPED

TO THIS.

HE GOT AWAY, MET IRAQI

BELIEVERS, HE WAS OVERWHELMED

WHEN HE WALKED INTO A HOUSE

CHURCH AND SINGING THIS SAME

SONG THAT THOSE MEN ON THE CROSS

WERE SINGING.

PAT: CHRISTIANS HAVE CHOSEN

TO STATE IN THAT CAULDRON OF

FIRE.

THEY COULDN'T LEAVE, COULD THEY?

THEY COULD.

THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE SUPPOSED

TO STAY THERE.

LEADERS IN SYRIA, 25 COMMITTED

TO STAY.

THEY BROUGHT LAND SO THEY COULD

BURY EACH OTHER.

ONLY CHURCH BUILDING THEY HAD.

SUNNI MUSLIMS COMING TO FAITH.

PAT: THEY BOUGHT LAND JUST

FOR BURIAL PLOTS?

THAT'S RIGHT.

THEY'LL SAY THINGS LIKE HE IS

MOVING.

WE HAVE NEW FRIENDS, THAT MEANS

MUSLIMS ARE COMING TO CHRIST AND

THE GRAVEYARD IS STILL EMPTY.

JESUS IS KEEPING THEM ALIVE.

PAT: THESE YOUNG PEOPLE,

PARTICULARLY THEY COULD WANT THE

YEARS THEY ARE GOING TO BE

ALIVE.

THEY DON'T LOOK FOR A LONG LIFE.

THEY ARE WILLING TO BE

SACRIFICED.

THEY REALLY ARE.

WHEN MUSLIMS COME TO FAITH IN

CHRIST IN SYRIA AND IRAQ, THEY

ARE ASKED TWO QUESTIONS: ARE

YOU WILL BE TO SUFFER FOR JESUS

ARE YOU WILLING TO DIE FOR

JESUS?

THEY ANSWER YES BEFORE THEY HAVE

MADE THE COMMITMENT TO CHRIST,

PAT, I WAS A PASTOR FOR 20

YEARS, CAN YOU IMAGINE THOSE TWO

QUESTIONS IN THE NEW MEMBERS

CLASS?

PAT: TAKE THAT TO SUBURBAN

DALLAS AND SEE WHAT THE ANSWER

IS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

[LAUGHTER].

PAT: HOW DO THESE PEOPLE

SURVIVE?

WHAT IS THEIR MEANS OF

LIVELIHOOD?

YOU KNOW WHAT, FIRST OF ALL,

THEY BELIEVE GOD IS PROTECTING

THEM, GOD PROVIDES.

MANY CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES

HELPING.

A LOT OF PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS

IN SYRIA, IRAQ, IRAN, OTHER

PLACES.

GOD IS PROVIDING GREAT

MINISTRIES HELPING.

THEY ARE NOT LEAVING.

THESE CHRISTIANS ARE STAYING.

PAT: IS THE CHURCH GROWING?

ARE THEY WINNING CONVERTS?

THEY ARE.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST RELEASED

STATISTICS: FASTEST GROWING

CHURCH PER CAPITA IN THE WORLD

IS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

PAT: COME ON.

HARVEST, PERSECUTION, THEY

GROW TOGETHER.

SATAN TRIES TO SLAM THE DOOR.

THEY ARE ALMOST LIKE IDENTICAL

TWINS.

DANGEROUS PLACES IS WHERE THE

CHURCH IS FLOURISHING.

PAT: WHAT CAN WE DO?

WE SIT IN UNBELIEVABLE LUXURY.

WHAT CAN WE DO FOR THESE PEOPLE?

NO. 1 THING IS PRAY.

WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE, CBN IS

LINKED :38.

WE PRAY FOR THOSE IN PRISON,

PERSECUTION AND DANGER.

PEOPLE THAT LIKE THAT PAGE GET

UPDATES AND ARE IN REAL TIME

WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SYRIA,

IRAQ, WE CAN CONNECT WITH THEM.

WE MAY NOT BE CALLED TO SUFFER,

WE CAN WALK WITH THOSE

SUFFERING.

THERE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

PAT: CAN WE GIVE ANYMORE

MATERIAL TO HELP THEM?

ABSOLUTELY, SENDING IN RELIEF

TO PERSECUTED BELIEVERS IN SYRIA

AND IRAQ.

E3PARTNERS.ORG.

WE ARE DOING THAT ALL THROUGHOUT

THE MIDDLE EAST.

REFUGE

REFUGEES, MANY FROM SYRIA COMING

TO FAITH IN CHRIST.

PAT: GOD BLESS YOU.

FOLKS, THIS BOOK YOU NEED TO

READ "STANDING IN THE FIRE."

WE HAVE IT SO GOOD HERE IN

AMERICA.

EVERYDAY I WANT TO THANK GOD WE

ARE BORN HERE.

WE HAVE HAD PRIVILEGES WEALTH

AND FREEDOM, NO OTHERS HAVE HAD

IN THE WHOLE GLOBE.

AND YET THESE PEOPLE ARE

SUFFERING.

LET'S HELP THEM AND PRAY FOR

THEM, DO WHAT WE CAN.

I WANT TO THANK TOM DOYLE FOR

BEING HERE.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU.

GREAT TO BE HERE.

TERRY, WHAT IS NEXT?

TERRY: COMING UP, HE WAS

LIVING THE HIGH LIFE TRADING

STOLEN AIRPLANES FOR COCAINE AND

CASH.

IT WAS COLD.

I REMEMBER BEING STRIP SEARCHED.

I AM STANDING THERE NAKED AND

THOUGHT HOW FAR HAVE I REALLY

FALLEN?

TERRY: ANSWER TO THAT

QUESTION IS COMING UP.

PAT: THANKS FOR BEING WITH

US, YOU ARE WATCHING "700 CLUB."

TREMENDOUS THINGS FOR YOU TODAY.

DAVID WAS A HARDWORKING COLLEGE

STUDENT WITH SEVERAL JOBS UNTIL

HE SAID HE REALIZED WHAT HE

THOUGHT WAS A GREAT TRUTH, NICE

GUYS FINISH LAST.

SO DAVID WANTED TO MAKE MORE

MONEY AND STARTED SELLING DRUGS,

EVENTUALLY, HE WOUND UP FACING

22 YEARS SENTENCE BEHIND BARS.

IT WAS BUILT IN ME TO WIN

EVERY TIME.

YOU DON'T LOSE.

DAVID'S DRIVE TO WIN CAME

FROM FATHER, COACH AND WORLD

CLASS DIVING CHAMPION PUSHED HIM

TO BE BEST.

I WAS CO-CAPTAIN OF THE

WRESTLING TEAM.

HE SAID HOW DID YOU DO?

I PINNED HIM.

WHAT ROUND?

SECOND ROUND.

YOU LET HIM GET OUT OF THE FIRST

ROUND?

HIS DAD WASN'T THE ONLY ONE

HE WORKED HARD TO IMPRESS.

HE MEASURED HIS SELF-WORTH BY

WHAT OTHERS HAD.

?

IF THEY HAD THE GIRL, THE CAR,

ALL THAT STUFF, BASED ON HOW WE

ARE ACCEPTED, ONCE I GOT IT, IT

DIDN'T MEAN ANYTHING.

I MUST NEED SOMETHING ELSE.

IN COLLEGE, HE WORKED SEVERAL

JOBS TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH HIS

PEERS.

HE HAD MONEY BUT NO TIME TO

ENJOY IT.

THAT ONLY ISOLATED HIM MORE AND

BECAME BITTER.

I CONSTANTLY MISSED THE FUN,

MISSED THE EXCITEMENT.

I MISSED BEING ACCEPTED.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF THESE OTHER

KIDS GET THESE ALLOWANCES FROM

THEIR PARENTS TO TGO OUT AND DO

THESE THINGS I HAVE TO WORK.

HERE IS HOW IT FLIPPED.

I AM THE GUY DOING EVERYTHING

THE RIGHT WAY AND IT IS NOT

WORKING.

I SAID THAT IS IT.

NICE GUYS FINISH LAST.

I AM NO LONGER GOING TO BE THE

NICE GUY.

WHEN DAVID WAS 19, ONE OF HIS

FRIENDS SAID THEY COULD MAKE

EASY CASH SELLING COCAINE.

ON HIS WORK BREAK, DAVID AND

FRIENDS MADE A DEAL IN THE

PARKING LOT.

FIRST TRANSACTION I DID WAS

TWO GRAMS OF COCAINE FOR TWO ONE

HUNDRED BILLS AND MADE MORE IN

THAT TRANSACTION IN TWO MINUTES

THAN I MADE WORKING PART TIME

HOURS THAT WHOLE WEEK GOING TO

COLLEGE.

I REMEMBER THE MORAL COMPASS

FLIPPING BACK AND FORTH.

I JUST DID A DRUG DEAL I NEED TO

STOP.

THE EASY MONEY WAS

INTOXICATING.

DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE, LEARNED

THE BUSINESS AND MAKING $20,000

A MONTH.

WAIT A SECOND, THIS IS A

WHOLE DIFFERENT WORLD AND I

LIKED IT.

I WANTED THE FINER THINGS.

I DIDN'T JUST WANT A SUIT, I

WANTED THE NICE SUIT.

HE SAID HE WOULD QUIT ONE

DAY.

THERE WAS A CONVICTION, I

DIDN'T WANT TO GO DEEPER.

I WANTED TO BELIEVE A LIE I

WASN'T GOING IN THE DRUG

BUSINESS FOR LIFE BUT TO MAKE

ENOUGH MONEY TO GO MAKE MY LIFE.

HIS MOTHER HAD BEEN PRAYING

TO TURN TO GOD.

SHE HAD SUSPICIONS ABOUT DRUGS.

SHE COMFORTED HIM.

DAVID DENIED IT.

I DEFLECTED THE

CONFRONTATION.

I REMEMBER WALKING OUT THINKING

I REALLY NEED TO STOP THIS

BUSINESS.

THIS IS NOT HONORING MY PARENTS

AND RISKING RUINING THE FAMILY

NAME FOR MONEY.

DAVID STARTED TO LOOK AT WHAT

WAS AT RISK.

PRISON TIME.

CAN'T BUY YOUR WAY OUT.

COULD BE LIFE OR DEATH ON THE

TARMAC OF AN AIRPORT.

COULD GET KILLED DURING A DRUG

DEAL, YOU COULD GET ROBBED.

I REMEMBER THINKING TO MYSELF

THIS IS NO LONGER FUN.

I WANT OUT OF THIS.

HE DECIDED ONE LAST BIG SCORE

WOULD BE ENOUGH TO GET OUT FOR

GOOD.

HE AGREED TO BROKER A DEAL

TRADING STOLEN AIRPLANES FOR

COCAINE AND CASH.

HE DIDN'T KNOW THE FEDS WERE

WATCHING.

1989 HE GOT BUSTED AND SENTENCED

TO 22 YEARS.

I REMEMBER IT WAS COLD.

I REMEMBER BEING STRIPPED

SEARCHED AND I AM STANDING THERE

NAKED.

AND I THOUGHT I HAVE REALLY HIT

ROCK BOTTOM.

NOW I AM GETTING READY TO GO

DOWN THE TIER TO MY PRISON CELL

IN ELEVEN WORTH, PENITENTIARY.

I REMEMBER THINKING HOW FAR HAD

I FALLEN?

BOTH HIS CELL MATES HAD

BECOME CHRISTIANS AND WANTED

NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD.

A VISIT FROM HIS MOTHER CHANGED

HIS THINKING.

MY MOTHER LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID MY GOD, SON.

YOU LOOK LIKE A HOLOCAUST

VICTIM.

I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, I HAVE

REALLY DROPPED TO THE LOWEST

LEVELS OF DEGRADATION.

I REMEMBER THINKING, IF THIS IS

ALL THERE IS THIS DOESN'T

SATISFY.

I NEED, I THINK I NEED GOD.

THAT NIGHT HE WENT TO A BIBLE

STUDY WITH HIS CELL MATES AND

GAVE HIS LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST.

I REMEMBER GIVING UP MY WILL

FOR HIS, THAT EXCHANGE TOOK

PLACE.

I REMEMBER KNOWING THAT HE WOULD

FORGIVE MY PAST AND GIVE ME A

FRESH SLATE THAT WAS CLEAN AND I

KNEW THAT MY COMMITMENT WAS A

COVENANT.

AFTER I PRAYED THAT PRAYER, I

KNEW I WAS DIFFERENT ON THE IN

INSIDE.

DAVID FOUNDED A BIBLE MINISTRY.

TODAY HE IS A SPEAKER OF AN

ONLINE MINISTRY.

HE AND HIS WIFE JOANNA RUN HELP

PEOPLE.

WHEN WE REALLY GIVE IT ALL TO

HIM, HE HELPS US IN THAT PLACE

IN RETURN.

PAT: THERE WAS A SONG YEARS

AGO A SONG PEGGY LEE SANG "IS

THAT ALL THERE IS?"

HAD TO DO WITH LIFE AND MIGHT AS

WELL GRAB THE BOOZE AND HAVE A

BALL.

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

DAVID FOUND THAT.

HE HAD A LOT OF MONEY.

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

IS IT JUST MORE MONEY?

DOESN'T SATISFY YOU.

WILD PARTY AFTER WILD, WEARS

THIN.

GET TIRED OF IT.

IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

YOU MAKE A SUCCESS IN POLITICS

OR SOME OTHER CAREER, MAYBE YOU

ARE SUCCESSFUL IN THE MOVIES,

ACTOR, WHATEVER.

GET THERE, IS THAT ALL THERE IS?

ANSWER IS NO ACTIVITY ON EARTH

IS GOING TO SATISFY YOU.

ONLY THE CREATION AND THE

CREATOR WILL SATISFY YOU BECAUSE

YOU WERE MADE FOR GOD.

YOU AND I WERE MADE FOR GOD.

AND GOD DIDN'T MAKE US FOR

MATERIALISM, HE MADE US AS

SPIRITUAL BEINGS TO BE IN

FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM.

DAVID FOUND IT, YOU CAN FIND IT.

I'LL OFFER IT TO YOU NOW,

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR CREATOR,

HE SAYS BEHOLD, I STAND AT THE

DOOR AND KNOCK, IF ANYBODY WILL

HEAR MY VOICE, OPEN THE DOOR,

I'LL COME IN.

WOULD YOU LIKE THAT?

HE STANDS AT THE DOOR, HE IS

KNOCKING AND SAYS, WOULD YOU

OPEN THE DOOR?

LET ME IN.

IF YOU WILL, I'LL GIVE YOU JOY,

PEACE, I WAS READING IN THE

APPEARANCES OF JESUS, RIGHT

AFTER HIS -- HE ROSE FROM THE

DEAD, HE APPEARED.

EACH TIME HE SAID, PEACE TO YOU.

PEACE.

SHALLOM.

IT HAS MEANING.

MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU.

YOUR TROUBLE RIGHT NOW, GOD WILL

GIVE YOU PEACE.

WOULD YOU PRAY WITH ME WHEREVER

YOU ARE?

BOW YOUR HEAD.

PRAY THESE WORDS, JESUS, THAT'S

RIGHT.

JESUS, I KNOW THAT YOU DIED THAT

I MIGHT LIVE, I REACH OUT AND

RECEIVE YOU AS SAVIOR.

I KNOW THAT THERE IS NOTHING ON

THIS EARTH THAT WILL SATISFY

ACCEPT THE CREATOR WHO MADE ME.

I AM COMING HOME, LORD, I AM

COMING BACK TO YOU.

I ASK YOU TO RECEIVE ME, I

ACCEPT YOU I BELIEVE IN YOU, I

AM GIVING YOU MY LIFE IN THIS

MOMENT ON, THANK YOU.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST THEN,

I WANT VERY MUCH TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP YOU, IT

IS CALLED A NEW DAY.

I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE YOU

HANGING.

WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?

I SPENT TIME MAKING A COMPACT

DISK.

IT HAD 74 MINUTES OF

CONCENTRATING TEACHING WHAT IT

MEANS TO BE BORN AGAIN, WHAT

HAPPENS IF YOU SIN.

GOD WILL FORGIVE YOUR SIN.

GOD WILL FORGIVE IT.

HE JUST ASKS YOU TO COME AND LET

HIM DO IT.

YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

COMING NEXT.

I'LL GIVE THAT TH THIS TO YOU,

TOLL FREE, NO CHARGE, NO MONEY

INVOLVED, 1-800-700-7000.

EASY TO REMEMBER.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES YOU,

PICK UP THE PHONE, CALL NOW.

20, 20, 20, 20 HOME RUNS, 20

GOD WILL BLESS ME WITH AN

CURTIS HAS BEEN CHRISTIAN

SINCE A KID.

CHRIST HAS BEEN THE CENTER OF

OUR FAMILY.

ALWAYS HAS BEEN A PART OF OUR

LIFE.

I WAS BAPTIZED AT 12 AT MY

GRANDMOTHER'S CHURCH.

IT IS INTERESTING WE ARE DOING

AN INTERVIEW AND I SPOKE WITH

HER TODAY.

GANDERSON ON THE MOVE!

CURTIS BEGAN CAREER WITH

DETROIT TIGERS BEFORE YANKEES

AND THEN THE METS IN 2014.

HE HAS TO WORK AT HIS GAME DAILY

AND DEPENDS ON GOD TO PUT IT

ALTOGETHER.

I TRY NOT TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT

HAS HAPPENED.

I HAVE HAD THE ABILITY TO BE

BLESSED WITH GREAT MENTORS AND

COACHES THAT HAVE PUT ME IN

SITUATIONS SO WHEN IT IS TIME

FOR THE BALL TO BE PITCHED, WE

HAVE THE MECHANIC, WE HAVE TO

TRUST GOD TO ALLOW ME TO DO THE

THINGS I AM CAPABLE OF.

ALSO HIS FAITH KEEPING HIS

PRESSING FORWARD THROUGH THE THE

RIGOROUS 162 GAME.

OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE GOING TO

HAVE UPS AND DOWNS AND HAVE

INJURIES AND THE WAY YOU RESPOND

AND HOW PEOPLE SEE IT IS FROM

CHRIST GIVING ME THE STRENGTH

AND THE PLAN WILL TAKE SHAPE.

OVER THE YEARS, HE

ESTABLISHED HIMSELF AS ONE OF

THE MOST GENEROUS GUYS IN

BASEBALL.

IN FACT AFTER HE STARTED LANDING

ENDORSEMENTS HE ASKED THEM TO

GIVE THE MONEY TO THE GRAND KIDS

FOUNDATION AND INNER CITY

PROGRAMS.

INITIAL DEALS YOU GET PAID IN

CASH AND MERCHANDISE.

ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY

OUTFITTED IN THE BEST NIKE GEAR

MONETARILY, PAY ME IN EQUIPMENT.

I AM WITH NEW BALANCE ON THE

SHOE SIDE OF THINGS.

NOW AS THE METS LAUNCH INTO

ANOTHER SEASON, CURTIS

UNDERSTANDS NONE OF THE FAME,

AWARDS OR MONEY WOULD HAVE BEEN

POSSIBLE WITHOUT HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.

BIGGEST THING IS REALIZING WE

ARE HERE BECAUSE OF HIM.

WE GET TO DO THESE THINGS ALL

BECAUSE OF HIM AND THROUGH HIM.

SOME LOOK AND SAY YOU HAD MORE

BLESSINGS.

THAT IS NOT THE CASE.

THERE ARE ALWAYS TRIALS AND

TRIBULATIO

TRIBULATIONS.

ALTHOUGH IT IS GOING TO LOOK

DIFFERENT ON THE OUTSIDE.

IT IS STILL THE SAME PATH.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE CURTIS

GRANDERSON, WHAT DO YOU WANT

THEM TO SEE?

I WANT THEM TO SEE SOMEONE

THAT WORKED HARD, DIDN'T TAKE IT

FOR GRANTED AND TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES LAID

OUT IN FRONT OF ME.

IF THINGS WENT ONE WAY, TRY TO

GET BACK ON TRACK AS SOON AS

POSSIBLE AND BE A LIVING EXAMPLE

OF WHAT CHRIST CAN DO FOR YOU

AND WHAT CHRIST HAS IN STORE FOR

YOU.

TERRY: CURTIS HAS A LOT OF

WISE COUNCIL, BLOOM WHERE YOU

ARE PLANTED.

PAT: HE HAS HIS PRIORITIES,

RIGHT, BOY CAN HE HIT THE

BASEBALL.

GOODNESS GRACIOUS.

I DON'T KNOW WHY HE KEPT GETTING

TRADED.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE

ARCANE FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS.

IN ANY EVENT.

HE IS WHERE HE IS SUPPOSED TO

BE.

> STILL AHEAD, YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, JUDITH SAYS: I FEAR

I HAVE LOST MY SALVATION AND

DESTINED FOR AN ETERNITY IN

HELL, WOW.

TERRY: BRING IT ON, COMING

UP.

TERRY: AN ORPHAN WITH THREE

STRONG DESIRES, LONGED FOR

MOTHER AND FATHER, WANTED A

BROTHER AND HOPED FOR A DOG.

TODAY THIS HAPPY LITTLE GIRL HAS

ALL THREE THANKS TO THE

GENEROSI

GENEROSITY OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

THIS IS THANKS TO PEOPLE LIKE

YOU.

JUST THREE YEARS AGO ULALA WAS

NEGLECTED AND ABUSED BY HER

ALCOHOLIC MOTHER.

SHE WOULD SCREAM AND BEAT ME.

MY PUNISHMENT WAS PUTTING ME IN

THE CORNER.

THEY PLACED HER IN A GIRL'S

HOME SUPPORTED BY CBN'S ORPHAN'S

PROMISE.

A CARETAKER IN THE HOME

REMEMBERS WHEN NINE-YEAR-OLD

ULALA ARRIVED.

SHE CAME TO US AS A

TRAUMATIZED CHILD.

TERRY: AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS

SHE WASN'T CRYING ANYMORE.

THE PEOPLE IN THE HOME WERE

SO KIND.

THEY CARED FOR ME.

THEY INTRODUCED ME TO JESUS.

HE IS MY FRIEND.

TERRY: AS HER RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS GREW STRONGER, SHE

ASKED HIM TO FULFILL THE DEEPEST

DESIRE OF HER HEART.

I ASKED JESUS TO SEND ME A

FAMILY OF MY OWN.

A MOTHER AND A FATHER, A BROTHER

AND EVEN A DOG.

TERRY: IN A NEARBY CITY, A

YOUNG COUPLE WHO WORKED WITH

ORPHAN'S PROMISE WAS PRAYING,

TOO, TO ADOPT A CHILD.

WHEN THEY VISITED DAY SPRING

GIRL'S HOME, THEY KNEW -- THEY

WANTED TO ADOPT ME, THEN IT

HAPPENED.

NOW ULALA HAS EVERYTHING SHE

PRAYED FOR, LOVING PARENTS, BABY

BROTHER AND HER OWN DOG.

MY MOM AND DAD ARE GOOD AND

KIND.

THEY LOVE ME, THEY PLAY TOGETHER

AND READ THE BIBLE TO ME.

OUR PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED,

TOO WHEN GOD GAVE US ULALA.

WE WANT HER TO KNOW ALL THE

JOY AND LOVE OUR FAMILY CAN

PROVIDE.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS

POSSIBLE.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME FIND

MY NEW PARENTS.

I HAVE MY OWN FAMILY NOW AND IT

FOREVER, THANK YOU.

ORPHAN'S PROMISE.

WE WANT THIS TO BE YOURS AND

INVITE YOU TO CHANGE THE LIVES

GET THE "THE SECRET KINGDOM" OUT

TO YOU RIGHT AWAY.

PAT: QUESTIONS.

TERRY: LET'S BRING IT ON.

THIS FIRST COMES FROM JUDITH: I

FEAR I LOST MY SALVATION.

I SINCERELY GAVE MY HEART TO

JESUS AT 12.

OVER THE YEARS I DRIFTED AND

FELL INTO SIN AND DOUBTED THE

EXISTENCE.

NOW AT 40 YEARS OLD, I HAVE COME

TO MY SENSES AND RETURNED TO

GOD.

HOWEVER I AM HAUNTED BY HEBREWS

6:4-6, AM I DESTINED FOR AN

ETERNITY IN HELL?

PAT: YOU MISRED HEBREWS.

THAT IS IF THE BELIEVER TURNS

AWAY FROM GOD, GOES ON AND ON,

NOT JUST SINS.

I WAS READING IN JOB.

JOB SAID I AM GOING TO TAKE MY

SINS AND WRAP THEM UP IN A BAG

AND PUT THEM UNDER MY FEET AS

FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE

WEST, THAT IS HOW FAR GOD WILL

TAKE YOUR SINS FROM YOU.

GOD LOVES YOU.

YOU HAVEN'T LOST ANYTHING.

FACT THAT YOU ARE STILL

INTERESTED, STILL CONCERNED

ABOUT YOUR SALVATION IS SO

IMPORTANT.

NO YOU HAVEN'T LOST IT.

YOU LOST YOUR JOY.

DAVID HAD A GUY, HE COMMITTED

ADULTERY WITH A MAN'S WIFE.

WIFE GETS PREGNANT.

DAVID, BRINGS HUSBAND HOME FROM

THE ARMY, HUSBAND IS TOO

RIGHTEOUS TO GO SLEEP WITH HIS

WIFE, HE GOES BACK TO THE

BATTLEFIELD.

DAVID SAID OKAY, I GAVE YOU A

CHANCE, NOW I AM GOING TO LAY ON

YOU.

HE PUT HIM IN THE HOTTEST PART

OF THE BATTLE.

GUY GETS KILLED.

DAVID TAKES WIFE, MARRIES HER,

IT WAS A TERRIBLE THING.

GOD WASN'T PLEASED.

DAVID WRITES 51 PSALM, LISTEN,

RESTORE UNTO ME THE JOY OF YOUR

SALVATION AND TAKE NOT YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT FROM ME.

DAVID LOST THE JOY BECAUSE OF

HIS SIN.

HE HAD TO BEAR THE CONSEQUENCES

OF SOME OF THE STUFF HE DID IT

WAS PRETTY BAD.

HOLY SPIRIT HAD NOT BEEN TAKEN

FROM HIM.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT

THIS.

JUST WHATEVER YOU ARE INTO,

WHATEVER YOU HAVE DONE, SEX,

MONEY, THIEVING, WHATEVER, GIVE

IT TO THE LORD.

PUT IT IN A BAG LIKE JOB DID,

PUT IT UNDER THE BLOOD AND

FORGET IT.

GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE.

ALL RIGHT.

TERRY: THIS IS MARIA, DEAR

PAT, I LOVE YOUR SHOW, I AM

HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING

PARTS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT, WHY

DO SOME APPLY SUCH AS DO NOT

COMMIT ADULTERY, OTHERS DO NOT,

NOT EATING PORK OR GETTING

TATTOOS.

PAT: JESUS HIMSELF SET US

FREE FROM THE DIET RULES.

WHAT YOU EAT DOESN'T POLLUTE

YOU.

JUST GOES THROUGH YOU AND GOES

OUT INTO THE TOILET.

WHAT POLLUTES YOU IS THE SINS OF

THE HEART LUST, GREED, SO FORTH.

THINGS THAT GO ON INTO HEAVEN

ARE THE SPIRITUAL THINGS,

MATERIAL STUFF ABOUT WHETHER YOU

DRINK A LITTLE OR EAT PORK.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE A BODY

LIKE THAT YOU WON'T HAVE A BODY

IN HEAVEN.

YOU'LL BE A SPIRITUAL BEING.

THINGS THAT CLING TO YOU ARE THE

SPIRITUAL THINGS.

TERRY: THIS IS SAVANNAH, HOW

DO I KNOW IF GOD WANTS YOU TO DO

SOMETHING, DO I PRAY?

PAT: BY REASON OF USE HAVE

SENSES OF TO DISCERN EVIL.

NO SUBSTITUTE FOR WALKING WITH

GOD, TESTING CERTAIN THINGS.

AS YOU GROW IN THE LORD, YOU'LL

BEGIN TO BE SENSITIVE IN THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

THAT IS HOW YOU KNOW.

BEYOND THAT, READ THE BIBLE.

SEE WHAT IT SAYS.

FOLLOW WHAT IS CLEARLY IN THE

BOOK.

TERRY: THIS IS CICI, DO I

HAVE TO TALK TO SOMEONE AFTER I

HAVE FORGIVEN THEM.

PERSON KEEPS CREATING DIFFERENT

PROFILES, I FEEL LIKE REPLYING

IS ADDING FUEL TO THE FIRE.

I WANT TO LEAVE THEM BEHIND,

WHAT SHOULD I DO.

PAT: WHEN YOU ARE PRAYING,

FORGIVE IN YOUR HEART, FORGIVE.

BUT HE ALSO SAID WHEN YOU BRING

YOUR GIFT TO THE ALTAR, REMEMBER

SOMEONE HAS OUGHT AGAINST YOU,

GO TO THAT SOMEBODY AND MAKE IT

RIGHT, THEN OFFER YOUR GIFTED.

QUESTION IS, IS THAT PERSON

HARBOR ANIMOSITY AGAINST YOU?

HAVE YOU DONE SOMETHING TO THEM?

IN TERMS OF THE FACT YOU ARE

HARBORING AN ILL FEELING, THAT

IS IT.

YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE?

THAT IS YOUR CALL.

IF YOU KNOW THAT PERSON IS

TRYING TO REACH OUT TO YOU,

LEAST YOU CAN DO IS ACKNOWLEDGE

IT AND SAY OKAY, I FORGIVE YOU,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR MESSAGE,

WE'LL GET ON FROM THERE.

THAT IS ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

GOT.

APPRECIATE SO MUCH YOU BEING

WITH US AND FOR TERRY AND ALL OF

US, WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
