THE FORMER STANDUP

COMIC TURNED PASTOR OF

AMERICA'S LARGEST CHURCH

BECOMES REALITY TV STAR.

WE'LL OPEN UP THE PAGES OF

THE BOOK OF JOHN GREY.

> PLUS, HIS TEAM IS FULL

OF LEGENDS AND HIS FAMILY,

FULL OF STARS.

GOD PICKED ME BACK UP,

AND I KNOW IT IS PART OF

HIS PLAN.

HEAR WHY HE SAYS HE IS

PLAYING FOR SOMEONE ELSE.

WITHOUT CHRIST, IT

DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING.

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS, TO THIS EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

YOU KNOW, THE "WASHINGTON

POST" HAS BEEN KNOWN AS A

LIBERAL RAG FOR YEARS, BUT

A GUY NAMED JEFF BESOS,

WHO IS A SUPER, SUPER RICH

BILLIONAIRE BOU BOUGHT THE

"WASHINGTON POST." AND

THEY THOUGHT HE WOULD MAKE

IT CONSERVATIVE, AND

INSTEAD IT HAS BECOME AN

AGENCY TO DESTROY TRUMP,

AND THE WHOLE THING IS

ATTACKING TRUMP.

SO THEY CONTRIVED FROM

SOURCES THAT WERE UNNAMED

A SCANDAL THAT THE

PRESIDENT HAD LEAKED

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

WELL, THOSE WHO WERE IN

THE ROOM HAVE ALL SAID,

UNIFORMALLY, THAT THE

THING DIDN'T HAPPEN.

THAT THIS "WASHINGTON

POST" STORY WAS NOTHING

BUT A LIE.

BUT, NEVERTHELESS,

EVERYBODY IS JUMPING ON

BECAUSE IT WAS ON THE

"WASHINGTON POST." AND

THEY'VE GOT A BIG --

THEY'RE TIED INTO A

NETWORK THAT PICKS UP

THEIR STORIES AND CARRIES

IT AROUND THE WORLD.

BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID

LATER, LOOK, I HAVE A

PERFECT RIGHT TO SHARE

INFORMATION ON HOW TO

DEFEAT ISIS.

AND IF WE WANT TO

COORDINATE SOME EFFORTS TO

KILL TERRORISM, WE HAVE A

PERFECT RIGHT TO DO IT.

WELL, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THE THING THAT

MAKES ME SICK IN MY

STOMACH IS TO HEAR BOB

CORKER, SENATE FOREIGN

RELATIONS CHAIRMAN,

REPUBLICAN, COMING OUT AND

SAYING, TRUMP HAS GOT TO

GET HIS ACT TOGETHER OR

ELSE.

HE IS UNDER ATTACK FROM

HIS ENEMIES, THEY ARE

FORMER OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HACKS THAT

ARE STILL IN THE

GOVERNMENT.

WHAT TRUMP HAS GOT TO DO

IS FIRE THESE PEOPLE AND

GET THEM OUT OF THE

GOVERNMENT.

THEY'VE TAKEN MUCH TOO

LONG IN FILLING UP THOSE

POSITIONS.

THEY HAVE 5,000 OR 6,000

PEOPLE THEY CAN PUT IN

PLACE AND THEY HAVEN'T

DONE IT.

WHO ARE IN THERE?

FORMER OBAMA PEOPLE WHO

ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY

CAN TO LEAK AND TO HURT

TRUMP.

HE HAS GOT TO CLEAN HOUSE.

IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS.

YOU CAN'T DELAY IT.

OF COURSE, YOU TALK ABOUT

FOXES IN THE HEN HOUSE,

THEY'RE IN THERE AND

THEY'RE OUT TO HURT HIM.

SO I WOULD JUST CALL ON

MEMBERS OF TRUMP'S PARTY,

PLEASE RECOGNIZE THE GAME

AND DON'T BE PART OF THE

OPPOSITION UNWILLINGLY.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, THE

PRESIDENT'S TWEETS CAME

AFTER DENIALS ABOUT THE

STORY FROM TOP WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS, AND IT HAS

CREATED ANOTHER MAJOR

POLITICAL CONTROVERSY IN

WASHINGTON.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION MOVED

QUICKLY TO DENY THE STORY.

NICE WA I WAS IN THE ROOM.

IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

Charlene: THAT WAS

THE RESPONSE FROM H.R.

McMASTER ABOUT THE

"WASHINGTON POST" STORY.

THE REPORT, WHICH QUOTES

ANONYMOUS SOURCES, SAYS

WHEN THE PRESIDENT SHARED

THAT HIGHLY CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION WITH RUSSIAN

OFFICIALS AT A MEETING

LAST WEEK, HE PUT A SOURCE

OF INTELLIGENCE ABOUT ISIS

AT RISK.

THE POST, CITING CURRENT

AND FORMER U.S. OFFICIALS,

SAYS THE PRESIDENT SHARED

DETAILS ABOUT AN ISLAMIC

TERROR THREAT RELATED TO

THE USE OF LAPTOP

COMPUTERS ON AIRCRAFT, WE

SERGEI LAVROV AND SERGEY

KISLYAK.

BUT McMASTER SAYS THE

STORY ISN'T CORRECT.

THE STORY THAT CAME OUT

TONIGHT AS REPORTED IS

FALSE.

THE PRESIDENT AND THE

FOREIGN MINISTRY VIEWED A

RANGE OF COMMON THREATS TO

OUR TWO COUNTRIES,

INCLUDING THREATS TO CIVIL

AVIATION.

AT NO TIME -- AT NO

TIME -- WERE INTELLIGENCE

SOURCES OR METHODS

DISCUSSED.

Charlene: AS

PRESIDENT, MR. TRUMP HAS

THE POWER TO DECLASSIFY

INFORMATION, SO HE

WOULDN'T HAVE BROKEN ANY

LAWS.

BUT THE LEADING DEMOCRAT

ON THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE

COMMITTEE IS LOOKING INTO

WHAT EXACTLY WAS SHARED IN

THAT MEETING.

THE CONTROVERSY COMES AS

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS

DISASSOCIATED ITSELF FROM

COMMENTS BY AN

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL

WHO SAID THAT THE WESTERN

WALL IS NOT PART OF

ISRAEL.

THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT HAD

REQUESTED THAT PRIME

MINISTER NETANYAHU GO WITH

THE PRESIDENT TO THE

WESTERN WALL WHEN TRUMP

GOES TO ISRAEL, BUT THAT A

DIPLOMAT IN ISRAEL TOLD

THE ISRAELIS THAT THE WALL

IS LOCATED IN THE WEST

BANK, AND SO IT IS NOT A

PART OF ISRAEL.

BUT THE WHITE HOUSE CALLED

THOSE REMARKS UNAUTHORIZED

AND SAID THEY DON'T

REPRESENT THE PRESIDENT'S

POSITION.

AND HERE AT HOME,

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SET TO

MEET WITH PRESIDENT

ERDOGAN OF TURKEY TODAY.

THE MEETING WILL LIKELY

CENTER ON THE FRICTION

BETWEEN THE U.S. AND

TURKEY OVER THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION'S DECISION

TO GIVE SYRIAN KURDISH

FIGHTERS POWERFUL WEAPONS

TO FIGHT ISIS.

BUT TURKEY IS AGAINST THAT

MOVE BECAUSE IT CONSIDERS

THOSE SYRIAN KURDS TO BE

TERRORISTS.

ANOTHER CURRENT STICKING

POINT BETWEEN THE TWO

COUNTRIES: ISRAEL.

AS PRESIDENT ERDOGAN

OPPOSE THE U.S. MOVING ITS

EMBASSY FROM TEL AVIV TO

JERUSALEM.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: OUR CBN NEWS

WHITE HOUSE CORRESPOND

JENNIFER WISHON IENTGEST ALOYISIUS ISCORRE SPONDENTJENNIFER WISHON IS WITH US

NOW.

WHO IS LOOKING THIS STUFF

UP THERE?

Jennifer: THAT'S THE

MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION,

PAT.

IS THIS SOMEONE IN THE

INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

WITH AN AX TO GRIND?

CERTAINLY YOU DON'T WANT

TO UPSET THE INTELLIGENCE

COMMUNITY BECAUSE THEY

WERE HAVE THE ABILITY TO

DO THINGS LIKE THIS, BUT

WE REALLY DON'T KNOW.

AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TO GET

A HANDLE ON, THESE LEAKS.

THIS IS ANOTHER CASE OF

THE ADMINISTRATION BEING

PITTED AGAINST ANONYMOUS

SOURCES COMING OUT OF THE

WHITE HOUSE IN THE PRESS.

THIS IS ANOTHER TOOL FOR

DEMOCRATS TO USE AGAINST

HIM.

AND YOU KNOW DEMOCRATS ARE

GOING TO MILK THIS.

AND IT IS JUST SO

FRUSTRATING FOR PRESIDENT

TRUMP BECAUSE, PAT, AS YOU

KNOW, HE HAS BEEN WORKING

DILIGENTLY OVER THE PAST

100 PLUS DAYS TO CHECK OFF

HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES.

AND HE HAS MADE A LOT OF

PROGRESS.

BUT IT SEEMS LIKE AS HE IS

WORKING TO DO THAT, HE

KIND OF HAS TO TAKE THESE

TWO STEPS BACK EVERY WEEK

OR SO TO DEAL WITH THESE

SCANDALS.

AND SO I CAN ASSURE YOU

THAT YESTERDAY AFTERNOON

AND THIS MORNING THE

PRESIDENT IS REALLY

WORKING TO IDENTIFY THIS

LEAK AND TRYING TO FIGURE

OUT HOW TO GET A HANDLE ON

THIS.

Pat: JENNIFER, HE HAS

SO MANY APPOINTMENTS

AVAILABLE TO HIM, 5,000 OR

6,000, OR WHATEVER, AND

HOW MANY OF THOSE HAS HE

FILLED?

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA?

Jennifer: WELL, UM, I

DON'T HAVE THE LATEST

NUMBER ON THAT, PAT, BUT

HE IS TRYING TO MAKE

PROGRESS ON THAT.

AND THAT'S PART OF THE

PROBLEM, IS THAT A LOT OF

THESE POSITIONS AREN'T

FILLED.

AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT IN

SOME OF THESE CABINET

SECRETARIES THERE ARE

WORKING WITH TRUMP DON'T

FEEL LIKE THEY CAN TRUST

THE PEOPLE IN THEIR

AGENCIES.

I'VE -- SOURCES HAVE TOLD

ME THAT DIRECTLY.

SO THAT'S A MAJOR PROBLEM.

I THINK THAT TRUMP REALLY

NEEDS TO FOCUS ON GETTING

HIS OWN PEOPLE INTO HIS

ADMINISTRATION SO THAT,

AGAIN -- TRUST IS SO

IMPORTANT.

THESE ARE HIGH-LEVEL

DISCUSSIONS TAKING PLACE

IN THE OVAL OFFICE.

AND HE NEEDS TO FEEL

CONFIDENT HE CAN SAY WHAT

HE FEELS LIKE HE NEEDS TO

SAY AT THAT MOMENT WITHOUT

SOMEONE RUNNING OUT AND

CALLING THE "WASHINGTON

POST." WE KNOW THAT THIS

PRESIDENT -- HE PRIDES

HIMSELF ON BEING FLEXIBLE.

THAT'S THE PRESIDENT HE

WANTS TO BE.

HE SAYS HE DOESN'T WANT TO

DRAW LINES IN THE SAND.

E HE DOESN'HE DOESN'T WANT TO

BROADCAST WHAT HE IS GOING

TO DO AHEAD OF TIME.

HE WANTS TO BE FLEXIBLE

WHEN HE IS MEETING WITH

WORLD LEADERS AND CRAFTING

POLICY.

HE HAS TO BE SURROUNDED BY

PEOPLE HE TRUSTS.

HE HAS GOT TO FOCUS ON

THAT.

Pat: JENNIFER, I'M

GOING TO HAVE THE

PRIVILEGE OF TALKING TO

MICHAEL ORR, THE M.S. FROM

ISRAEL ON MONDAY'S SHOW.

LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT THAT

WESTERN WALL.

THAT IS ONE OF THE HOLIEST

PLACES IN ISRAEL, THE

WAILING WALL.

AND SOMEBODY IN THE

ADMINISTRATION IS TRYING

TO SAY THAT IS PART OF

EAST JERUSALEM AND IT IS

NOT PART OF ISRAEL.

WHAT ABOUT THAT?

Jennifer: THAT IS A

MAJOR ISSUE GOING INTO

THIS FOREIGN TRIP.

IT WAS NICE TO SEE THE

WHITE HOUSE IMMEDIATELY

PUSH BACK AGAINST THAT.

BUT, AGAIN, THAT'S KIND

OF -- IT KIND OF SOUNDS

LIKE THERE WAS A ROGUE

FORCE THERE IN THAT

MEETING, PAT.

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT

TRIP FOR THE PRESIDENT.

HIS FIRST FOREIGN TRIP,

HITTING SAUDI ARABIA,

ISRAEL, AND ROME.

IT IS KIND OF THE WORLD

RELIGION TOUR.

AGAIN, THAT IS SOMETHING

THAT THE PRESIDENT DID NOT

NEED GOING INTO THIS TRIP.

HE HAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT

HE IS -- AMERICA IS A VERY

STRONG ALLY OF ISRAEL,

THAT WE HAVE ISRAEL'S

BACK.

A VERY IMPORTANT TRIP FOR

THE PRESIDENT, TOO, AS HE

DECIDES WHETHER OR NOT HE

IS GOING TO MOVE -- KEEP

HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISE AND

MOVE THE U.S. EMBASSY FROM

TEL AVIV TO JERUSALEM.

REPORTS INDICATE HE IS

GETTING SOME PUSHBACK FROM

HIS STAFF ON THAT.

HE HAS TO MAKE THAT

DECISION THIS WEEK.

SO IT IS A PIVOTAL TIME

FOR HIM.

HE DOESN'T REALLY NEED

THIS CONTROVERSY GOING

INTO THIS TRIP.

BUT I IMAGINE THAT ONCE HE

MEETS WITH PRIME MINISTER

NETANYAHU, THAT HE'LL BE

ABLE TO SMOOTH THAT OVER.

AND I KNOW A LOT OF

AMERICANS ARE PRAYING THAT

THIS IS A FRUITFUL TRIP.

Pat: ONE LAST

QUESTION: HE HAS THE

TURKISH PRIME MINISTER OR

PRESIDENT -- WHATEVER HE

IS -- ERDOGAN.

AND TRUMP DID THE WISE

THING, HE IS GIVING SOME

SOPHISTICATED WEAPONS TO

THE KURDS TO HELP THEM

FIGHT ISIS.

OF COURSE THE KURDS DON'T

LIKE THAT, BUT THAT IS

TOUGH LUCK.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL

COME OUT OF THAT?

Jennifer: I THINK THE

PRESIDENT DECIDED TO ARM

THESE KURDISH REBELS IN

SYRIA BECAUSE HE THINKS IT

IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO

TRY TO TOPPLE ISIS IN

RAQQA.

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT

BATTLE.

THE TURKS DON'T LIKE THIS

BECAUSE THEY PLACE THE

KURDISH FIGHTERS IN SYRIA

AND OTHER KURDS IN THE

SAME BASKET AT THE

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION

P.K.K.

SO THIS WILL BE A FORCE OF

CONTENTION WHEN PRESIDENT

ERDOGAN VISITS PRESIDENT

TRUMP HERE TODAY.

THIS RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

THE U.S. AND TURKEY HAS

BECOME STORMY.

I TALKED TO A FORMER

MEMBER OF THE TURKISH

PARLIAMENT JUST YESTERDAY

WHO SAYS HE IS CONCERNED

ABOUT THIS RELATIONSHIP.

PRESIDENT ERDOGAN HAS BEEN

TRANSITIONING HIS COUNTRY

INTO AUTHORITARIANISM.

HE HAS CONTROL OVER NOT

ONLY THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH,

BUT THE JUDICIAL BRANCH.

HE HAS TALKED ABOUT THE

WEST ON A CRUSADE AGAINST

THE MUSLIM WORLD.

WE HAVE SEEN CHRISTIANS

FACING INCREASING

PERSECUTION, SPECIAL

PROTESTANTS IN THAT

COUNTRY.

ONE ISSUE WE'RE HOPING

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BRING

UP TODAY IS THE UNLAWFUL

JAILING, SINCE OCTOBER, OF

PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON IN

TURKEY.

WE'RE HOPING HE WILL BRING

THAT UP.

BECAUSE, PAT, AS YOU KNOW,

COUNTRIES THAT DON'T ALLOW

THEIR PEOPLE TO PRACTICE

FREELY TEND TO END UP

BEING ENEMIES OF THE U.S.

AND TURKEY, OF COURSE, IS

AN IMPORTANT NATO ALLY.

SO THIS IS A VERY

IMPORTANT MEETING AT THE

WHITE HOUSE TODAY.

Pat: JENNIFER, THANK

YOU SO MUCH.

WE APPRECIATE THAT.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, AS

YOU KNOW, I'M A FAN OF THE

KURDS.

I THINK THEY'RE WONDERFUL

PEOPLE.

AND I THINK THEY DESERVE

THEIR OWN COUNTRY.

AND I THINK THERE IS A

PIECE OF IRAQ THAT IS

KURDISH, AND VERY

IMPORTANT THERE IS A PIECE

OF SYRIA THAT IS KURDISH,

AND THERE IS A PIECE OF

TURKEY THAT IS KURDISH.

THE TURKS PROBABLY WON'T

GIVE UP THEIR PIECE, BUT

THE OTHER TWO COULD BE

CONSOLID DATCONSOLIDATED INDEPENDENT

STATE.

> EXPERTS NOW THINK THEY

KNOW WHO WAS BEHIND THE

MASSIVE COMPUTER ATTACK

OVER THE WEEKEND.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: PAT,

CYBER-SECURITY ANALYSTS

ARE POINTING THE FINGER AT

NORTH KOREA, AND ONE SOUTH

KOREAN CYBER-EXPERT SAYS

MORE EVIDENCE PUTS THE

BLAME ON THE NORTH KOREAN

GOVERNMENT.

NORTH KOREA IS EXPERIENCED

IN THE WORLD OF BITCOIN,

AND AS EARLY AS 2013 HAS

BEEN TAKING IT MALICIOUS

COMPUTER PROGRAMS.

ONE EXPERT SAID THERE IS A

SOLID LEAD IN THE

INVESTIGATION.

HE SAID, "THERE IS A LINK.

WE ARE REALLY DRILLING

DOWN ON WHAT IT MEANS, BUT

THERE IS PART OF A CODE

THAT IS SHARED BETWEEN

WANNACRY AND A HOCKEYING HACKING

TOOL."

BUT, PAT, NO ONE HAS BEEN

OFFICIALLY CONNECTED.

Pat: WE HAVE THE BEST

CYBER-ACTIVITIES IN N.S.A.

IN THE WORLD.

I THINK WE SHOULD TURN

THEM LOSE ON NORTH KOREA

AND SHUT THEM DOWN.

WE CAN DO IT.

WE CAN SHUT DOWN

EVERYTHING THEY ARE DOING,

IF WE WANT, AND IT IS TIME

WE EXERCISE THAT.

JOHN?

John: PAT, THERE MAY

BE POLITICAL TURBULENCE

RIGHT HERE IN WASHINGTON,

BUT IT IS NOT AFFECTING

WALL STREET.

THE STOCKS ARE STILL

HITTING RECORD HIGHS ON

BOTH THE STANDARD AND

POOR'S 500 AND THE NASDAQ

COMPOSITE.

CRUDE OIL PRICES HAVE

BOUNCED BACK.

AND IF YOU GO BY WHAT IS

CALLED MARKET

CAPITALIZATION, THE FIVE

BIGGEST BUSINESSES ARE ALL

TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES.

APPLE IS NUMBER ONE.

IT'S TOTAL STOCK WORTH IS

JUST OVER $800 BILLION.

ALPHABET, WHICH IS GOOGLE,

IS WORTH OVER

$660 BILLION.

AND MICROSOFT IS NUMBER

THREE AT WELL OVER

$500 BILLION.

AND AMAZON COMES IN

FOURTH, JUST OVER

$450 BILLION.

AND Facebook ROUNDS THE

LIST AT NUMBER FIVE, AND

IT IS WORTH A BIT OVER

$430 BILLION.

IT LOOKS LIKE WALL STREET

CONSIDERS TECHNOLOGY THE

BIG GROWTH INDUSTRY OF THE

FUTURE.

Pat: THERE IS NO

QUESTION ABOUT IT.

BUT THE MARKET, IN MY

OPINION, IS OVERSOLD.

I THINK THERE ARE A NUMBER

OF ANALYSTS WHO THINK THAT

IT IS TOO FROTHY AND WE'RE

IN FOR A SERIOUS

CONNECTION.

BUCORRECTION.

BUT IT SURE HASN'T

HAPPENED YET.

Terry: COMING UP,

WITNESS FRO PROPHECY IS

UNFOLDING IN THE WEST

BANK.

AND SEE WHY THE LAUGHTER

OF THESE CHILDREN SIGNALS

A PIVOTAL POINT IN

HISTORY.

Pat: WELL, ISRAEL AND

THE WORLD ARE WONDERING

WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

PLANNING DURING HIS VISIT

TO THE MIDDLE EAST.

WILL HE CALL FOR THE U.S.

EMBASSY TO BE MOVED?

COULD HE PRESENT A PEACE

PLAN?

PREVIOUS PLANS HAVE CALLED

ON ISRAEL TO TURN OVER

LAND IT WON DURING THE

SIX-DAY WAR IN EXCHANGE

FOR PEACE.

BUT THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE

FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE GOD

GAVE THAT LAND TO THE

JEWISH PEOPLE AS PART OF

THEIR DIVINE INHERITANCE.

OUR CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS

US THAT STORY FROM

JERUSALEM.

Chris: MUCH OF THE

WORLD CALLS THE PLAYGROUND

THESE CHILDREN ENJOY AN

OBSTACLE TO PEACE.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY'RE IN

JUDEA AND SAMARIA,

OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE

WEST BANK.

ARE WE WITNESSING PROPHECY

UNFOLDING RIGHT NOW AFTER

THE 1967 WAR?

ABSOLUTELY.

IT SAYS THAT THE SOUNDS OF

CHILDREN PLAYING IN THE

STREETS WILL BE HEARD ONCE

AGAIN.

YOU HEAR IT.

YOU SEE IT.

Chris: I SPOKE WITH

FORMER SHILOH MAYOR IN

SHILOH, THE HIGHWAY JACOB,

ABRAHAM AND ISAAC WOULD

HAVE TRAVELLED ON.

IT OPENED THE DOOR FOR

JEWISH PEOPLE TO REDEEM

THE BIBLICAL HEARTLAND

AFTER 2,000 YEARS IN

EXILE.

PLACES LIKE JERUSALEM,

HOME OF TWO CONSECUTIVE

JEWISH TEMPLES.

BETHLEHEM, THE BIRTHPLACE

OF JESUS.

HEBRON, WHERE ABRAHAM,

ISAAC, AND JACOB AND THERE

WIVES ARE BURIED.

AND SHIL LOWO, WHERE THE

TABERNACLE STOOD FOR 69

YEARS.

THEY ALL CAME BACK INTO

ISRAELI HANDS.

YOU SEE THE SIX-DAY WAR

LIKE A PROPHETIC EVENT IN

HISTORY?

CLEARLY.

IT TALKS ABOUT THE DRY

BONES BEING PUT BACK

TOGETHER AGAIN.

ISRAEL WAS BEING PUT BACK

TOGETHER AGAIN AS A

NATION.

WE DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO

SHILO, WE DON'T HAVE A

RIGHT TO SHLEM AND BETHEL,

AND WE DEFINITELY DON'T

HAVE A RIGHT TO TEL AVIV.

Chris: IT TOOK UNTIL

1967 FOR SHILO TO BE

ESTABLISHED, JUST ABOVE

THE SITE WHERE THE

TABERNACLE HAD RESTED.

THERE WERE ISRAELIS WHO

WERE COMING HERE TRYING TO

SET UP TENTS ON THE LOWER

HILLS OF SHILO, AND THE

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER,

WHO WAS LOOKING OVER HIS

SHOULDER AT THE AMERICAN

PRESIDENT, KEPT SENDING IN

THE ARMY TO CHASE THEM

AWAY.

Chris: JUST MONTHS

AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR

ISRAELIS ESTABLISHED THE

FIRST JEWISH COMMUNITY IN

JUDEA, ABOUT 35 MILES

SOUTH OF SHILO AT KEFAR

ETSION.

JEWS LIVED THERE IN 1948

AND WERE EITHER EVACUATED

OR MASSACRED BY THE

JORDANIANS.

WHEN THIS GROUP OF

ORPHANS OF THOSE WHO WERE

MURDERED NOTIFIED THE

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, THAT

IF YOU DON'T GIVE US THE

PERMIT, WE WILL GO ON

WITHOUT THE PERMIT, THE

GOVERNMENT REALLY COULDN'T

STAND UP AGAINST ORPHANS

OF THOSE WHO WERE

MURDERED.

AND SO IT WAS ESTABLISHED.

Chris: RABBI WALDMAN

WAS ONE OF THOSE WHO

HELPED ESTABLISH THE NEXT

COMMUNITY IN ANCIENT

HEBRON.

THERE WAS ALWAYS A

JEWISH COMMUNITY IN

HEBRON, EVEN CONSIDERING

THE 2,000 YEARS OF EXILE,

UNTIL 1929, WHEN THE ARABS

MASSACRED THE JEWISH

COMMUNITY HERE.

Chris: A SMALL GROUP

OF FAMILIES RENTED A HOTEL

IN HEBRON FOR THE PASSOVER

SADAR.

AND EVENTUALLY THEY NEVER

LEFT.

I BELIEVE THEN ALMOST

THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF

ISRAEL WAS WITH US.

EVEN MORE THAN A HALF YEAR

AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR, THE

SPIRITS WERE HIGH AMONG

ALMOST THE ENTIRE

POPULATION.

*

THOUSANDS OF ISRAELI

PILGRIMS ENTER THE OLD

CITY OF JERUSALEM FOR

SOLEMN RELIGIOUS

CEREMONIES.

ALL OF THE MEDIA WAS

WITH US.

I EVEN REMEMBER HEADLINES,

PASSAGES OF THE PROPHETS

HOVERING IN THE AIR.

Chris: AFTER 50

YEARS, SOME 430,000

ISRAELIS LIVE IN MORE THAN

200 COMMUNITIES IN JUDEA

AND SAMARIA.

THE NUMBER JUMPS TO

750,000 IF EASTERN

JERUSALEM NEIGHBORHOODS

ARE I INCLUDED.

THE GROWTH HERE HAS

BEEN SO TREMENDOUS.

AS WE HAVE GOTTEN THROUGH

THOSE 50 YEARS AFTER THE

SIX-DAY WAR, AND WE ARE

LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE,

WE HAD THIS VISION OF A

BOOMING SHILO ONCE AGAIN.

Chris: 50 YEARS AGO,

WHAT WOULD THIS PLACE HAVE

LOOKED LIKE?

BARREN DESERT, HILLS OF

WEEDS AND THORNS.

Chris: THIS ROAD WILL

LEAD TO A NEW SCHOOL FOR

THE GROWING POPULATION.

THERE ARE 8,000 RESIDENTS

IN THE SHILO TOWNSHIP.

MORE THAN 2,000 OF THEM

ARE CHILDREN WHO STUDY

HERE IN SHILO.

WE LEARN THAT WHEN

ISRAEL IS NOT IN THE LAND,

THAT THE LAND LAYS BER

REN.

BARREN.

AND NOW THE LAND OF ISRAEL

IS GIVING OF ITS FRUIT

BECAUSE ISRAEL IS BACK,

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT

FRUIT IS WHAT YOU SEE

RIGHT HERE: ALL THESE

CHILDREN HERE.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, SHILO

IN SAMARIA.

Pat: YOU READ ABOUT,

QUOTE, "SETTLEMENTS," AND

I'VE BEEN TO THOSE CITIES.

THERE ARE THRIVING

FACTORIES AND

UNIVERSITIES, AND ALL

KINDS OF LEARNING GOING ON

AND TREMENDOUS COMMERCE

AND BEAUTIFUL

NEIGHBORHOODS AND ROADS.

THEY CALL THESE

SETTLEMENTS, LIKE THEY'RE

A BUNCH OF TENTS THAT YOU

CAN JUST MOVE IN AND TAKE

DOWN.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

THIS IS ISRAEL.

THIS IS JUDEA AND SAMARIA.

IT IS THE OLD PART OF

ISRAEL.

AND I THINK IT IS TIME THE

UNITED STATES RECOGNIZES

IT AND LISTENS -- THESE

ARAB CLAIMS ARE JUST MADE

UP.

THEY'RE FICTIONAL.

SURE THERE WERE SOME ARABS

THERE, BUT AS THE MAN

SAID, IT WAS NOTHING BUT

ROCK AND WASTE LAND.

I THINK IT WAS ONE OF OUR

GREAT WRITERS WHO WENT

THROUGH THE LAND, AND HE

COULDN'T SEE ANYBODY.

THERE WASN'T A SOUL THERE,

NOTHING.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN ISRAEL

COMES IN AND BUILDS IT UP,

AND THEN THE ARABS WANT TO

MOVE IN AND GET JOBS.

YOU CAN'T BLAME THEM.

BUT THEN THEY WANT TO MOVE

THE ISRAELIS OUT, AND THE

ISRAELIS SAY, NO, IT IS

OUR LAND.

IT IS GIVEN TO US BY GOD

ALALMIGHTY.

HE WHO WANTS TO PARTITION

MY LAND, THERE IS A CURSE

ON THEM.

GOD CALLS IT "MY LAND."

TERRY?

Terry: CBN HAS

PRODUCED A NEW MOVIE ABOUT

THE SIX-DAY WAR, "IN OUR

HANDS: THE BATTLE FOR

JERUSALEM" OPENS IN

THEATERS ON MAY 23rd FOR

A ONE DAY ONLY EVENT.

GO TO IN OUR

INOURHANDS1967.COM.

DON'T MISS THIS.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT ALL

OF US AS BELIEVERS NEED TO

SEE AND UNDERSTAND.

> UP NEXT, THE BOSTON

CELTICS ARE ON A RUN FOR

THE NBA CHAMPION, AND

CENTER TYLER ZELLER FEELS

THE HEAT OF THE GAME.

WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING 62

GAMES, SOMETIMES YOU NEED

A EXTRA STRENGTH.

I ALWAYS ASK GOD TO TAKE

OVER AND PLAY FOR ME.

Terry: MORE FROM THE

MAN ONCE DUBBED

Pat: REGENT

Pat: REGENT

UNIVERSITY, THE EXECUTIVE

VICE PRESIDENT TOLD ME

YESTERDAY THERE THE

ENROLLMENT FOR FALL IS UP

50% OVER THE PREVIOUS

YEAR.

IT SHOWS A LOT OF PEOPLE

ARE INTERESTED.

128 COURSES, ESPECIALLY

WHEN YOU'VE GOT

CYBER-SECURITY, AND A

WHOLE NEW SERIES OF

COURSES FOR NURSING.

IF YOU WANT TO BE AN R.N.

AND GET A BACHELOR'S OF

SCIENCE, WE'VE GOT IT.

AND WE'LL BE OFFERING SOON

A DOCTORATE IN NURSING.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS STEP UP

FOR NURSING.

IT IS FULLY ACCREDITED,

AND THE BACHELOR OF

SCIENCE IN NURSING IS A

BIG DEAL.

WE HAVE THE COOPERATION OF

MANY HOSPITALS AROUND THE

AREA WHO WANT TO SEND

THEIR NURSES TO GET THE

CREDENTIALING THEY NEED TO

MOVE UP IN THEIR CAREERS.

SO THAT'S JUST SOMETHING.

BUT THE NUMBERS ARE ON

YOUR SCREEN.

IT IS 1-866-910-7615.

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

ENROLLMENT RIGHT NOW FOR

THE FALL TERM.

ACTUALLY, OVER THE YEAR

YOU CAN SIGN IN -- IT IS

NOT JUST SIX TIMES, BUT

THERE ARE EIGHT TIMES YOU

CAN SIGN UP.

EVERY COUPLE OF WEEKS

THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY.

Terry: IT IS REALLY

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CAMPUS,

TOO.

Pat: IT IS EXCITING,

AND A THRILLING SCHOOL.

Terry: WELL, SPEAKING

OF THRILLING AND EXCITING,

LAST NIGHT THE BOSTON

CELTICS CLOSED OUT AN

AMAZING SERIES AGAINST THE

WASHINGTON WIZARDS TO

ADVANCE TO THE EASTERN

CONFERENCE FINALS, WHERE

THEY WILL NEXT FACE THE

DEFENDING NBA CHAMPIONS,

THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS.

SEAN BROWN SPOKE WITH THE

CELTICS' CENTER, TYLER

ZELLER, ABOUT HIS LOVE FOR

THE GAME AND HIS LOVE FOR

GOD.

Reporter: THE BOSTON

CELTICS HAVE WON 17 NBA

CHAMPIONSHIPS.

AND AFTER LAST NIGHT

SERIES WIN, THEY ARE A

STEP CLOSER TO ANOTHER

TITLE.

AND CENTER TYLER ZELLER IS

READY FOR THE CHALLENGE.

AFTER ALL, HE HAS BEEN

SURROUNDED BY THE GAME OF

BASKETBALL HIS ENTIRE

LIFE.

BOTH OF HIS PARENTS

PLAYED.

HIS OLDER BROTHER LUKE

PLAYED, AND HIS YOUNGER

BROTHER WAS A CHARLOTTE

HORNET.

I SAT DOWN WITH TYLER TO

TALK ABOUT HIS HUMBLE

BEGINNINGS.

HE GREW UP IN INDIANA,

WHERE BASKETBALL RULES.

TYLER, HIS DAD AND HIS

BROTHERS PLAYED FOR HOURS.

I ACTUALLY WASN'T A FAN

OF BASKETBALL GROWING UP.

I HAVE TO GIVE MY DAD A

LOT OF CREDIT.

HE WOULD GET HOME FROM

WORK AND HE WOULD WORK A

12-HOUR DAY, AND WE WOULD

BE, LIKE, DAD, YOU WANT TO

GO TO THE GYM?

I DON'T NOW HE DID IT.

BUT HE WOULD TAKE US TO

THE GYM FOR ANYWHERE FROM

AN HOUR TO THREE HOURS.

Reporter: HE WAS

NAMED MR. BASKETBALL FOR

HIS SENIOR YEAR.

AND AS MUCH AS HIS FAMILY

LOVED THE SPORTS, HIS

PARENTS TAUGHT HIM AND HIS

BROTHERS THAT THE FIRST

PRIORITY IS LIFE ISN'T

BASKETBALL.

IT'S FAITH IN CHRIST,

SOMETHING HE HAS DEPENDED

ON THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER.

I'VE BEEN INJURED, I'VE

HAD THINGS NOT GO MY WAY.

NO MATTER HOW TOUGH IT

GETS, I'VE ALWAYS GOT HIM

TO PICK ME BACK UP.

I KNOW IT IS PART OF HIS

PLAN.

Reporter: TODAY TYLER

WAS BATTLING IT OUT

UNDERNEATH THE BOARD.

AND AS ALWAYS, TYLER IS

LEANING ON GOD TO HELP HIM

AND HIS TEAMMATES PERFORM

AT THEIR BEST.

PHILIPPIANS 4: 13, I

KNOW IT CAN BE REFERENCED

IN ALL WAYS: I CAN DO ALL

THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO

GIVES ME STRENGTH.

WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING 82

GAMES, SOMETIMES YOU JUST

NEED A LITTLE EXTRA

STRENGTH.

WHEN I GO OUT, I ALWAYS

ASK GOD FOR HELP, TO TAKE

OVER AND JUST PLAY FOR ME.

THERE ARE NIGHTS I CAN'T

DO IT.

THERE ARE NIGHTS THAT I

CAN DO IT, BUT I CAN'T DO

IT AS WELL AS HE CAN DO

IT.

I KNOW IF HE'S GOT MY BACK

AND HE IS PLAYING FOR ME,

IT IS GOING TO WORK OUT

PERFECTLY.

Reporter: TYLER IS

GRATEFUL THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN HIM THE PRIVILEGE OF

PLAYING PROFESSIONAL

BASKETBALL.

BUT HE BELIEVES NO MATTER

WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU

DO, JESUS CHRIST SHOULD BE

A TOP PRIORITY.

FIRST OF ALL, SHOULD

YOU COMMIT YOUR LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST?

ABSOLUTELY.

IT IS THE BEST DECISION I

HAVE EVER MADE IN MY LIFE,

HANDS DOWN.

IT GIVES ME PURPOSE IN

LIFE.

IT GIVES ME REASON FOR

BEING.

EVEN BASKETBALL IS FUN AND

ENJOYABLE, BUT WITHOUT

CHRIST, IT DOESN'T MEAN

ANYTHING.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING I CAN

USE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF

HIS KINGDOM.

Terry: IT IS ALWAYS

WONDERFUL TO SEE SOMEBODY

WHO IS SO ACCOMPLISHED IN

WHAT THEY DO GIVE THE

GLORY TO GOD.

Pat: AND LARRY BIRD

WAS THE STAR FOR SO LONG.

AND UP AGAINST THE

CAVALIERS, THEY'VE GOT

THAT PHENOMENON WHO IS

SO -- WELL, IN THE

SPOTLIGHT IN THE

CAVALIERS.

BUT, HEY, YOU KNOW --

Terry: STRANGER

THINGS COULD HAPPEN.

Pat: YOU NEVER KNOW.

Terry: TIME FOR SOME

E-MAIL.

LET'S "BRING IT ON."

THIS FIRST QUESTION, PAT,

COMES FROM BERNADINE, WHO

SAYS, "HI, PAT.

OVER THE PAST 10 YEARS

I'VE BEEN TURNING AWAY

FROM JESUS, AND THE ENEMY

HAS BEEN PUTTING NEGATIVE

THOUGHTS IN MY MIND.

I WANT TO GET TO KNOW

JESUS AGAIN.

HOW DO I DO THIS?

PLEASE HELP ME."

Pat: TAKE HEED THERE

TO ACCORDING TO THY WORD.

INSTRUCTION AND

RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE BIBLE

SAYS -- HOW DO YOU GET

BACK?

WELL, YOU START BY READING

THE WORD.

IT IS AN EXERCISE THAT I

WOULD RECOMMEND STRONGLY,

GET BY YOURSELF AND TAKE A

YELLOW PAD OR SOME WRITING

INSTRUMENT, AND SIT DOWN

AND ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU

ALL OF THE THINGS YOU'VE

DONE WRONG.

AND YOU MIGHT WRITE

SEVERAL PAGES.

AND YOU GET THROUGH AND

YOU SAY, NOW, GOD, I ASK

YOU TO FORGIVE ME FOR ALL

OF THESE SINS, THESE

THINGS THAT I'VE DONE.

AND THEN YOU TAKE IT, BALL

IT UP, SET A MATCH TO IT,

BURN IT UP, AND SAY, ALL

RIGHT, NOW LET'S GO

FORWARD WITH THE LORD, AND

BEGIN TO BUILD YOUR LIFE

WITH HIM, ON THE WORD, ON

PRAYER, BETWEEN YOU AND

HIM, AND LET THERE BE

NOTHING BETWEEN YOU AND

GOD BUT AN OPEN CHANNEL.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS MADELYNE, PAT, WHO

SAYS, "MY CHILDREN WERE

STOLEN FROM ME BY THEIR

DAD BECAUSE OF CHILD

SUPPORT HE DID NOT WANT TO

PAY.

IT HAS BEEN 26 YEARS OF

BEING ESTRANGED FROM MY

CHILDREN AND NOW MY

GRANDCHILDREN.

I CANNOT GET OVER MY

BROKEN HEART, ALTHOUGH GOD

HAS RELIEVED IT SOME.

MY CHILDREN REFUSE TO HAVE

ME IN THEIR LIVES AS THEIR

FATHER TURNED THEM AGAINST

ME, EVEN TELLING ONE OF MY

CHILDREN I WANTED TO ABORT

THEM, WHICH IS NOT TRUE.

WHAT WOULD GOD WANT ME TO

DO?

I HAVE FORGIVEN ALL

INVOLVED, BUT THERE

DISLIKE IS STILL STRONG."

Pat: JUST TELL THEM,

I LOVE YOU, I'M YOUR

MOTHER.

I'VE NEVER WANTED ANYTHING

BUT LOVE FOR YOU AND

PLEASE KNOW.

AND THEN TURN THEM OVER TO

THE LORD.

GOD HIMSELF HAS A MIRACLE.

HE WILL BRING TO THOSE

CHILDREN REVELATION.

THERE IS ONLY ONE MOTHER

THEY'VE EVER HAD, AND THEY

YEARN FOR YOU, EVEN THOUGH

THEY ACT LIKE THEY DON'T.

THEY CANNOT STAND THE

SEPARATION THAT IS THERE.

YOU PRAY THAT THE LORD

WILL PUT IN THEIR HEART

LOVE, AND IN THE MEANTIME,

YOU'VE JUST GOT TO TURN IT

OVER TO GOD.

ALL IT IS DOING IS EATING

YOU AND DESTROYING YOU.

TURN IT OVER.

YOUR HUSBAND DID A

TERRIBLE THING AND TOOK

SOMETHING PRECIOUS FROM

YOU.

BUT GOD IS THERE.

LET HIM FILL YOUR LIFE.

Terry: THIS IS KELLY

WHO SAYS, "PAT, THE BIBLE

SAYS IN PSALMS 86: 15,

THAT GOD IS MERCIFUL AND

GRACIOUS AND SLOW TO

ANGER.

YET IN NUMBERS 15, GOD

TOLD MOSES AND THE

CONGREGATION TO STONE A

MAN TO DEATH FOR PICKING

UP STICKS ON THE SABBATH.

I'VE DONE FAR WORSE.

HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHERE

THE MERCY AND SLOW TO

ANGER KICK IN."

Pat: IN THE

BEGINNING, LIKE IN THE

EARLY DAYS OF THE CHURCH,

THERE WAS A COUPLE WHO

SOLD SOME PROPERTY, GAVE

THE MONEY, BUT ACTED LIKE

THEY HAD GIVEN IT ALL, AND

IN TRUTH THEY HELD SOME

BACK.

AND IT WAS A DECEPTION.

PETER SAID, IT'S YOURS,

WHY DID YOU LIE TO GOD?

BUT IT WAS THAT THING AT

THE BEGINNING THAT WAS A

CANCER THAT COULD SPREAD.

THAT WAS THE WAY IT WAS IN

THOSE EARLY DAYS OF

ISRAEL, WHEN GOD LAID DOWN

REQUIREMENTS FOR THEM, AND

THEY WERE BREAKING HIS

LAW.

NOW, GOD IS LOVING AND

GRACIOUS AND, YOU KNOW,

SHOWS MERCY UNDER THE

10th GENERATION.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME,

THOSE WHO BREAK HIS LAW

ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY

FOR IT.

HE IS NOT GOING TO LET YOU

GO UNPUNISHED.

THE BIG PUNISHMENT FELL ON

JESUS, BUT IF YOU DON'T

CLAIM THAT -- SO THAT'S

IT.

GOD IS LOVING.

JUST KEEP THAT IN MIND.

Terry: THIS IS FAITH

WHO SAYS, "DEAR, PAT, MY

NAME IS FAITH.

I'M 17 YEARS OLD AND WANT

TO BE A SINGER FOR JESUS.

I LOVE THE LORD AND WANT

TO USE MY TALENT FOR HIM.

BUT I NEED SOME ADVICE ON

HOW TO GET STARTED.

HOW DO I START NOW AT 17.

P.S., I LOVE THE SHOW."

Pat: I'M GLAD YOU

LOVE THE SHOW.

HOW DO YOU START?

LOOK, SING IN YOUR CHOIR,

SING IN YOUR CHURCH, SING

AT OF COFFEE HOUSES.

SING AND USE YOUR TALENT,

AND THEN WAIT FOR THE LORD

TO SHOW YOU THE WAY.

WAYS WILL OPEN UP, IF

YOU'RE REALLY THAT GOOD.

A MAN'S GIFTS WILL MAKE A

WAY FOR IM.

Terry: GARY SAYS, "I

READ THE BIBLE DAILY AND

I'VE READ IT THROUGH MANY

TIMES.

2 SAMUEL AND 1 CHRONICLES

CONFUSE ME.

2 SAMUEL SAYS THE LORD

MADE DAVID TAKE A CENSUS.

WHAT IS YOUR UNDERSTANDING

OF BOTH OF THESE?

I LOVE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB"THE 700CLUB."

Pat: THAT HAS BEEN A

CONUNDRUM FOR A LONG TIME.

THERE WAS A CENSUS WHEN

THEY CAME OUT OF EGYPT,

AND GOD SAID COUNT THE

PEOPLE, AND THEY COUNTED

THEM.

I THINK THE DEAL HERE WAS

THAT DAVID WAS TRYING TO

BUILD HIMSELF UP AS A

HOT-SHOT KING, AND HE WAS

AN AGERUM OF HIS OWN

PRESTIGE, AND THAT'S WHAT

HE WAS DOING.

AND SATAN, IT SAYS,

STIRRED UP GOD AGAINST

ISRAEL.

SATAN WAS USING THAT TO

DESTROY ISRAEL.

AND THE PENALTY WAS VERY

SEVERE.

AND DAVID LATER SAID, WHY

ARE YOU PUNISHING THESE

PEOPLE?

I'M THE ONE THAT DID IT.

KILL ME; PUNISH ME.

TAKING A CENSUS -- THERE

IS NOTHING WRONG WITH

THAT.

WE TAKE A CENSUS HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES HERE.

THERE IS NO SIN IN THAT.

BUT IN THIS CASE, IT WAS

TO LOOK LIKE A HOT-SHOT.

THAT'S ALL I CAN FIGURE.

THE LORD WAS SAYING, THESE

PEOPLE ARE MY PEOPLE.

AND YOU ARE ACTING LIKE

THEY BELONG TO YOU.

I THINK THAT WAS THE SIN.

Terry: WE THANK YOU

FOR COMMUNICATING WITH US.

WE WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT

YOU WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ON

THE PROGRAM.

AND WE ENJOY "BRING IT ON"

AS WELL.

> STILL AHEAD, HE WAS

KNOWN AS THE HOMELESS

PREACHER, AND NOW HE IS

THE STAR OF HIS OWN

REALITY THE TV SHOW.

JOHN GREY JOINS US LIVE,

LATER ON TODAY'S SHOW.

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE U.S. IS CHARGING SYRIA

WITH EXECUTING THOUSANDS

OF IMPRISONED POLITICAL

OPPONENTS AND BURNING

THEIR BODIES IN A

CREMATORIUM TO HIDE THE

EVIDENCE.

WE NOW BELIEVE THAT THE

SYRIAN REGIME HAS

INSTALLED A CREMATORIUM

WHICH COULD DISPOSE OF

DETAINEES REMAINS WITH

LITTLE EVIDENCE.

ALTHOUGH THE REGIME'S MANY

ATROCITIES ARE

WELL-DOCUMENTED, WE

BELIEVE THAT THE BUILDING

OF A CREMATORIUM IS AN

EFFORT TO COVER YOU U UP THE

MASS MURDERS.

THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION SAYS THE

SYRIAN GOVERNMENT KILLED

UP TO 50 PEOPLE A DAY AT

THAT PRISON COMPLEX FROM

2011 TO 2013.

THE ADMINISTRATION IS ALSO

HOLDING RUSSIA AND IRAN

ACCOUNTABLE FOR SUPPORTING

THE KILLINGS.

> CHINA COULD BECOME THE

BIGGEST CHRISTIAN NATION

IN THE WORLD.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM

RODNEY PENNINGTON.

HE BELIEVES THAT THERE

COULD BE 200 MILLION

CHINESE BELIEVERS BY THE

YEAR 2030.

HE ALSO TOLD THE CHRISTIAN

POST THAT THE GROWING

NUMBER OF BELIEVERS IN

CHINA WILL GREATLY SHAPE

THE GLOBAL CHURCH IN THE

YEARS AHEAD.

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: ISMAEL IS A

YOUNG BOY WHO FLED THE WAR

IN SYRIA WITH HIS MOTHER

AND SIBLINGS.

THEY MANAGED TO ESCAPE

JUST BEFORE HIS FATHER WAS

FATALLY SHOT IN THE BACK.

Reporter: AS ISMAEL

WAS ON HIS WAY HOME FROM

SCHOOL ONE DAY, BOMBS

BEGAN FALLING AROUND HIM.

MEN WITH RIFLES STORMED

THROUGH THE STREETS OF

SYRIA.

MY SON WAS SAVED BY A

SHOPKEEPER WHO TOOK HIM IN

UNTIL THE FIGHTING MOVED

ON.

IT WAS A HORRIBLE TIME,

AND I WAS IN CONSTANT FEAR

FOR MY CHILDREN'S LIVES.

I KNEW WE HAD TO GET OUT

OF SYRIA.

Reporter: ISMAEL'S

FATHER ARRANGED FOR A

DRIVER TO TAKE ISMAEL, HIS

MOTHER AND HIS TWO

SIBLINGS INTO LEBANON.

BEFORE HE COULD JOIN THEM,

HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK

AND KILLED.

WE HAD A GOOD LIFE, AND

THEN THE CIVIL WAR

HAPPENED AND EVERYTHING

WAS TAKEN FROM US.

NOW I HAVE TO RAISE MY

CHILDREN ALONE AND TRY TO

START OVER.

Reporter: ISMAEL'S

FAMILY NOW LIVES IN A

MASSIVE CAMP IN THE MACAU

VALLEY WITH THOUSANDS OF

OTHER REFUGEES.

HIS MOTHER TOLD ME SHE

WORKS LONG HOURS IN A

NEARBY FIELD, MAKING LESS

THAN $4 A DAY.

MANY DAYS AS SHE WORKED,

SHE THOUGHT ABOUT HOW

ISMAEL WAS BEING

MISTREATED AT THE LOCAL

PUBLIC SCHOOL.

THE TEACHERS HIT THE

CHILDREN.

AFTER EVERYTHING ISMAEL

HAD BEEN THROUGH, THE

TEACHERS MADE IT SO HARD

FOR HIM HE DIDN'T WANT TO

GO TO THE SCHOOL EVER

AGAIN.

Reporter: THEN "HEART

FOR LEBANON" INVITED

ISMAEL TO OUR HOPE CENTER,

A SCHOOL DEDICATED TO

PROVIDING A SAFE AND

LOVING ENVIRONMENT FOR

REFUGEE CHILDREN.

AT MY OLD SCHOOL, THE

TEACHERS WOULD HIT ME IF I

COULDN'T ANSWER THE

QUESTIONS RIGHT.

AND ALL OF THE KIDS

BULLIED EACH OTHER.

BUT IT IS SO NICE HERE.

I HAVE WONDERFUL FRIENDS

AND THE TEACHERS ARE

REALLY KIND.

Reporter: AT THIS

OPENLY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL,

ALONG WITH LEARNING MATH,

ENGLISH AND MUSIC,

STUDENTS ARE ALSO SHOWN

"SUPERBOOK" IN ARABIC.

JESUS TEACHES US TO BE

GOOD TO OTHERS.

I HAVE LEARNED TO BE LIKE

HIM AND TO PRAY TO GOD

WHEN I'M IN TROUBLE.

Reporter: ALL OF THE

CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOL

COME FROM MUSLIM FAMILIES,

BUT THEIR FAMILIES ARE

HAPPY TO SEE WHAT THEY'RE

LEARNING IN THIS CHRISTIAN

ENVIRONMENT.

I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH MY CHILDREN LEARNING

ABOUT JESUS AND ALL HIS

TEACHINGS BECAUSE NOW

THERE IS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT ABOUT MY

CHILDREN.

I CAN SEE A CHANGE COMING

FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

THEY ARE GETTING HAPPIER

EVERY DAY.

Reporter: "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" AND "HEART FOR

LEBANON" ALSO PROVIDE

LARGE PORTIONS OF FOOD

EACH MONTH TO ISMAEL'S

FAMILY AND THE OTHER

REFUGEES IN THE CAMP.

I AM SO HAPPY TO KNOW

THERE ARE CHRISTIANS WHO

ARE REACHING OUT TO

MUSLIMS WHO ARE SUFFERING

AND IN NEED.

I PRAY FOR THESE PEOPLE

AND FOR GOD'S BLESSING ON

THEM.

IT MEANS A LOT FOR US TO

KNOW THAT THEY THINK OF US

AND FEEL FOR US.

THANK YOU FOR THE FOOD

AND FOR ALLOWING ME TO GO

TO THIS SCHOOL.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IT

IS REALLY HARD TO IMAGINE

THE HARDSHIP THAT FAMILIES

LIKE THIS ARE FACED WITH.

HERE IS A MOM IN A FOREIGN

COUNTRY, RAISING HER

CHILDREN ALONE.

HER HUSBAND HAS BEEN

KILLED, THE KIDS HAVE BEEN

EXPOSED TO WAR, AND NOW

THEY LIVE IN A TENT CITY.

WHAT WE'RE SAYING TO YOU

IS "700 CLUB" MEMBERS, YOU

ALLOWED US TO BRING THE

LOVE OF CHRIST AND THE

TRUTH RIGHT INTO THE MIDST

OF THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES.

THE CHILDREN ARE BEING

WELL-EDUCATED.

THEY'RE BEING LOVED.

THEY ARE LEARNING WHAT IT

MEANS TO EXPERIENCE THE

LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST AND

THE MOMS AND DADS ARE AS

WELL.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

THIS IS JUST ONE OUTREACH

THAT YOU'RE A PART OF WHEN

YOU BECOME A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, MAKES YOU A "700

AND YOU ARE REACHING OUT

PAT?

Pat: THAT'S

WONDERFUL.

"ORPHANS' PROMISE" IS A

WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION, A

WONDERFUL OUTREACH.

> WELL, UP NEXT, HE IS A

PASTOR, HE IS AN AUTHOR,

AND HE HAPPENS TO BE NOW

THE STAR OF HIS OWN

REALITY SHOW.

JOHN GRAY JOINS US WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Terry: HE IS AN

ACTOR, A SINGER, A

COMEDIAN, AND THE

ASSOCIATE PASTOR OF THE

LARGEST CHURCH IN TEXAS.

BUT JOHN GRAY IS ALSO

SOMETHING ELSE, HE IS

NUMBER EIGHT OUT OF EIGHT

CHILDREN.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: JOHN GRAY

IS THE ASSOCIATE PASTOR AT

JOEL OLSTEEN CHURCH.

HE HAS ENTERTAINED

THOUSANDS AS A STANDUP

COMIC.

BUT GROWING UP, HE WAS

UNPOPULAR AND NEVER

IMAGINED HE COULD O DO ANY

OF THESE THINGS.

HE SAYS EVERYONE HAS A

PURPOSE, EVEN IF THEY FEEL

FORGOTTEN.

HIS OWN SHOW AIRS ON THE

OWN NETWORK ON SATURDAYS.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB" THE

AUTHOR OF "I AM NUMBER

EIGHT," JOHN GRAY.

JOHN, IT IS GREAT TO HAVE

YOU HERE.

YOU WEREN'T ACTUALLY THE

EIGHTH OF EIGHT CHILDREN,

BUT YOU TALK ABOUT DAVID

AND OTHERS IN THE BIBLE

WHO WERE SORT OF THE

FORGOTTEN ONES.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE

NUMBER EIGHT?

THE WHOLE IDEA OF THE

BOOK STARTS IN 1 SAMUEL

16, WHERE SAMUEL IS AT

JESSE'S HOUSE AND HE IS

THERE ON ASSIGNMENT TO

ANOINT A KING.

AND TRYING TO MAKE THE OIL

FLOW ON SEVEN SONS, AND

THE OIL DOESN'T FLOW.

AND SAMUEL SAYS, ARE ALL

OF THE YOUNG MEN HERE.

AND JESSES, THERE YET

REMAINS THE YUNGT.

YOUNGEST.

AND HE SAYS, WE WILLNITY

SIT DOWWILL NOTSIT DOWN UNTIL HE COMES.

SO JESSE CALLS HIM IN.

AND HE IS ANOINTED KING OF

THE NATION WITH THE DIRT

STILL ON HIM.

DAVID WAS NOT EVEN

CONSIDERED AN OPTION.

HIS FATHER DIDN'T EVEN

KNOW HIS OWN SON'S VALUE.

AND WHAT WAS INTERESTING

TO ME WAS THAT BEING THE

EIGHTH SON IN A

PATRIARCHAL SOCIETY, HE

WAS THE LAST ON THE TOTEM

POLE, BUT HE WAS FIRST IN

GOD'S HEART.

YOU CAN BE OVERLOOKED AND

UNDERVALUED BY MEN BUT NOT

FORGOTTEN BY GOD.

SO WHAT THE BOOK REALLY IS

ABOUT IS FOR PEOPLE LIKE

ME, WHO FELT MAYBE

MARGINALIZED OR BULLIED OR

MAYBE OVERLOOKED OR WERE

ANONYMOUS FOR LARGE

SEASONS OF OUR LIVES, THAT

GOD ACTUALLY USE ANONIMITY

TO PRODUCE HIS GLORY.

WHAT JESUS TEACHES US,

THOSE WHO IDENTIFY WITH

THIS BOOK, IS THAT THE

PROCESS AND THE HUMILITY

THAT COMES FROM THE

PROCESS IS EXACTLY WHAT

THE SPIRIT OF GOD NEEDS TO

PERMEATE THE EARTH RIGHT

NOW.

WE NEED PEOPLE WHO HAVE

GONE THROUGH THE PAIN OF

REJECTION TO BE ABLE TO

IDENTIFY WITH OTHER

PEOPLE'S PAIN.

OFTENTIMES WHEN THINGS

HAVE BEEN HANDED TO YOU,

YOU HAVE A LITTLE LESS

EMPATHY FOR PEOPLE WHO

STRUGGLE.

THIS IS BOOK IS FOR

ANYBODY WHO HAS EVER FELT,

I KNOW I'M CALLED TO

SOMETHING GREATER, BUT

RIGHT NOW IT IS NOT MAKING

SENSE.

THIS BOOKS HELPS TO MAKE

SENSE.

Terry: YOU WERE AN

ONLY CHILD.

YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH

YOUR DAD WAS NOT WHAT YOU

HELPED OR WANTED IT OR

NEEDED IT TO BE, BUT YOUR

MOM WAS THE ONE WHO KEPT

CALLING FOR PATIENCE.

MY MOTHER WAS AND IS

NOW A PHENOMENAL WOMAN OF

GOD.

MY MOTHER AND FATHER

DIVORCED WHEN I WAS

PROBABLY FOUR AND A HALF.

I SAW HIM FOUR TIMES IN MY

LIFE.

BUT MY MOTHER PUSHED ME IN

THE THINGS OF GOD.

AND SHE LIVED A CHRIST

LIFE IN FRONT OF ME.

AND AT SEVEN YEARS OLD, I

KNEW WHO JESUS WAS FOR MY

MYSELF.

AND I ACCEPTED CHRIST.

AT 13, I KNEW I WAS CALLED

TO MINISTRY.

Terry: BUT THAT

DIDN'T DIMINISH THE

STRUGGLE OF THINGS.

YOU HAD A LOT OF REJECTION

FROM KIDS YOUR AGE.

PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND WHO YOU WERE OR

VALUE WHO YOU WERE.

HOW DID YOU DEAL WITH

THAT?

I THINK HONESTLY, YOU

COPE THE BEST WAY YOU CAN.

ESPECIALLY WHEN PEOPLE ARE

MAKING FUN OF YOU ON THE

BUS EVERY DAY.

YOU KNOW, MY MOTHER HAD TO

CUT CORNERS.

SO SHE HAD TO CUT MY HAIR.

SO I DIDN'T GET TO GO TO

THE BARBER SHOP.

SO MY HAIRCUT WASN'T

ALWAYS THE BEST.

AND I USED TO SUCK MY

THUMB, SO I HAD BUCK TEETH

BEFORE I GOT BRACES.

[LAUGHTER]

WHAT IT DID WAS

ACTUALLY GAVE ME A

PLATFORM TO LAUGH.

BECAUSE LAUGHTER DOES

GOOD, LIKE A MEDICINE.

I STARTED COMPENSATING BY

TURNING THAT INTO LAUGHTER

AND GODLY LAUGHTER.

MY MOM ALWAYS SPOKE LIFE

TO ME.

IT DIDN'T CHANGE THE PAIN

OF BEING REJECTED AND NOT

REALLY FITTING IN WITH THE

COOL CROWD.

Terry: SO WHAT ADVICE

WOULD YOU GIVE TO PEOPLE

WHO ARE WATCHING WHO ARE

SAYING, I FEEL LIKE I'M A

NUMBER EIGHT IN MY LIFE.

I WOULD TELL THEM TO

REFERENCE THE SCRIPTURE

AND LOOK AT HOUR EYE HOW OUR

HEAVENLY FATHER HAS ALWAYS

DONE MIRACULOUS THINGS

WITH THE FORGOTTEN ONES.

Terry: ACTUALLY, THAT

HAS BEEN IT PATTERN.

IT IS.

WHETHER IT IS THE NUMBER

EIGHT, AS IN DAVID.

DOES ANYTHING GOOD COME

OUT OF NAZARETH?

Terry: BORN IN A

STABE BELL.

STABLE.

OVERLOOKED,

UNDERVALUED, AND,, OF

COURSE, HE IS THE SAVIOR

OF THE WORLD.

I LOVE MY SAVIOR FOR THAT.

EIGHT BIBLICALLY MEANS NEW

BEGINNINGS.

SO GOD CAN BEGIN AGAIN IN

YOUR LIFE.

WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO

THE LORD AND YOU DECIDE

THAT TRUSTING HIM IS

BETTER THAN TRUSTING YOUR

OWN INTUITION AND YOUR OWN

ABILITY, THEN YOU BEGIN TO

WATCH GOD OPEN DOORS.

I HAVE BEEN SAYING

RECENTLY, THIS IS THE

SEASON OF THE OPEN DOORS.

IF YOU'RE GOT TO KNOCK,

THAT IS NOT YOUR DOOR.

THIS IS THE SEASON FOR THE

OPEN DOOR.

THOSE WHO ARE THE NUMBER

EIGHTS, WE ARE THE ONES I

BELIEVE GOD IS POSITIONING

TO SPEAK LIFE TO BROKEN

PEOPLE.

HE IS THE ONE THAT IS

OPENING THE DOOR.

SO OUR JOB IS TO STAND

BEHIND HIM AND TRUST HIM

FOR THAT PROCESS.

Terry: HE HAS AN OPEN

DOOR FOR YOU, TOO, YOUR

OWN TV SHOW.

YES, MA'AM.

Terry: IS THAT BASED

ON YOUR LIFE?

IT IS.

IT IS A DOCU SERIES THAT

FOLLOWS MY WIFE AND I AND

TWO CHILDREN.

IT IS ON THE OPRAH WINFREY

NETWORK.

AND THE SHOW ISN'T JUST

ABOUT US.

IT IS ABOUT HOW WE CONNECT

WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE

CHURCH AND HELP THEM WALK

TO PLACES OF HEALING AND

WHOLENESS.

WHAT I TOLD THE PEOPLE AS

WE WERE GOING THROUGH THIS

PROCESS, I SAID, LET ME

TELL YOU, I'M

UNAPOLOGETICALLY A

CHRISTIAN.

I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT

JESUS.

IF THAT'S A PROBLEM, THEN

YOU DON'T WANT ME.

IF YOU DON'T WANT ME

TALKING ABOUT THE LORD,

THEN FOLLOW SOMEBODY ELSE.

I WILL NOT MINIMIZE MY

SAVIOR FOR THE PURPOSES OF

TELEVISION.

I SERVE AT THE COMMAND OF

MY KING.

THEY ARE WILLING AND HAVE

BEEN VERY GRACIOUS.

THERE ARE CLIPS OF MY

SERMONS IN EVERY EPISODE.

SO IT IS THE INTERSECTION

OF FAITH AND HUMANITY, AND

IT'S WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS

TO SEE.

Terry: AND IT IS AN

OPEN DOOR.

YOU CAN CHECK OUT JOHN'S

TV SHOW, "THE BOOK OF JOHN

GRAY," 10 p.m. EASTERN

ON THE OWN CHANNEL.

JOHN'S BOOK IS CALLED "I

AM NUMBER EAT."

EIGHT."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD.

AND WE HAVE A WEB

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH

JOHN ON Facebook.

THANK YOU, MY FRIEND.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE.

THANK YOU, MY FRIEND.

IT IS AN HONOR TO ARE

HERE.

Pat: TOMORROW, DO YOU

BELIEVE DEMONS ARE REAL?

WE'VE GOT A WOMAN WHO WAS

TORMENTED BY THEM

TOMORROW.

> ASK AND YOU WILL

RECEIVE THAT YOUR JOY MAY

BE FULL."

FOR TERRY AND MYSELF, THIS

IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
