Efrem: TODAY...THE

WAR THAT CHANGED THE

WORLD.

WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THE

HEROS WHO WON THE BATTLE.

JEWS WAITED THOUSANDS

OF YEARS FOR THIS MOMENT.

Efrem: PLUS...HE WAS

A MUSIC MOGUL, WHO WORKED

WITH EMINEM AND J.ZAY.

HE CHANGED HIS TUNE.

IF THIS IS WHAT MAKING

IT LOOKS LIKE, I DON'T

WANT TO BE HERE ANYMORE.

Efrem: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

FOLKS.

I JUST WANT TO LEAD THE

SHOW WITH A LITTLE SALUTE

TO OUR PROGRAM "IN OR

HANDS," AND THE CBN MOTION

PICTURE THAT AN OPENING

LAST NIGHT.

IT SOLD OUT OWNER THEATERS

ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

AT LEAST 100,000 PEOPLE.

FATHOM IS GOING TO GIVE

ANOTHER NIGHT.

WE'LL BE ANNOUNCING THAT.

THE OPENING WILL BE IN

ISRAEL IN A FEW DAYS.

IT IS JUST A TREMENDOUS

PROGRAM.

AND THE RESPONSE OF THE

AUDIENCE IS OVERWHELMING.

SO WE'LL TELL YOU IN

DETAIL, BUT I JUST WANT TO

CONGRATULATE OUR FILM CREW

AND THE PEOPLE WHO WERE

INVOLVED IN PRODUCING IT.

MY SON GORDON, AND ERIN

ZIMMERMAN.

> WELL, POLICE IN

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, HAVE

ARRESTED THREE MORE

SUSPECTS AS PEOPLE THOUGHT

IT COULDN'T POSSIBLY HAVE

BEEN ONE LONE BOMBER.

THAT WAS THE HORRIFYING

TERRORIST ATTACK THAT

KILLED AT LEAST 22 PEOPLE,

MOST OF THEM YOUNG PEOPLE,

INCLUDING ONE 8-YEAR-OLD

GIRL.

Wendy: IT IS SO

HEARTBREAKING.

AND THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT

HAS CALLED IN THE MILITARY

TO HELP OUT AS IT WORKS TO

PREVENT ANOTHER POTENTIAL

TERRORIST STRIKE.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE TERROR

THREAT LEVEL IN BRITAIN

HAS BEEN RAISED TO

CRITICAL.

AS PRIME MINISTER THERESA

MAY WARNED ANOTHER ATTACK

WOULD BE IMMINENT.

THE SUSPICION IS CONFIRMED

THAT 22-YEAR-OLD SALMAN

ABEDI DID NOT ACT ALONE.

HE DETONATED A DEVICE AT

THE END OF AN ARIANA

GRANDE CONCERT.

STEPHANIE KEELY WAS NEAR

THE EXIT WHEN THE BOMB

WENT OFF.

IT WAS AN EXPLOSIVE

CRASH.

Reporter: ABEDI WAS

BORN IN LIBYA, BUT HE GREW

UP IN MANCHESTER AND EVEN

ATTENDED A MANCHESTER

UNIVERSITY.

THE POLICE BLEW OFF HIS

DOORS TO HIS HOME, LOOKING

FOR EVIDENCE, INCLUDING

HIS COMPUTER.

SAFFIE ROSE ROUSSOS, AN

8-YEAR-OLD VICTIM.

AND OLIVIA CAMPBELL IS

ANOTHER VICTIM.

THE NUMBER HOSPITALIZED

WITH WOUNDS HAS CLIMBED TO

64.

THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY

20 WHO ARE RECEIVING

CRITICAL CARE.

Reporter: AND SOME

ARE STILL MISSING, LIKE

MARTIN HETT, SEPARATED

FROM HIS FRIENDS AT THE

END OF THE SHOW.

AND THIS MOTHER, WENDY,

WHO HASN'T BEEN SEEN SINCE

THE END OF THE SHOW.

> SOME ARE SUGGESTING

THAT BRITAIN SHOULD JUST

GET USED TO BEING

ATTACKED.

BRITISH DEFENSE MINISTER

WEIGHED IN SAYING THAT

TERRORISM IS UNLIKELY TO

STOP IN EUROPE BECAUSE OF

ITS POLITICALLY CORRECT

CHARACTER, AND THAT EVERY

BOMBING IN EUROPE LEADS TO

A LOT OF TALK BUT LITTLE

ACTION.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, HERE AT

HOME, THE PRESIDENT HAS

PRESENTED A BUDGET, WHICH

IS THE LARGEST BUDGET THAT

HAS EVER BEEN PROPOSED,

FOPROPOSED FORANY NATION IN THE HISTORY

OF THE WORLD.

THE LARGEST BUDGET THAT

HAS EVER BEEN PROPOSED IN

THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

IN EXCESS OF $4 TRILLION.

THE LARGEST -- I WANT TO

SAY AGAIN, IT IS A HUGE --

NOW, LISTEN, THIS BUDGET

GROWS.

IT IS NOT A CUT.

IT GROWS.

BUT ALL THEY'VE DONE IS

CUT BACK THE RATE OF

GROWTH TO TRY TO GET

SOMETHING THAT IS

SUSTAINABLE.

AND WHILE THEY'RE DOING

IT, I HAVE BEEN SIMPLY

APPALLED -- APPALLED AT

THE OVER THE TOP

STATEMENTS OF LEADING

DEMOCRATS.

HERE IS WHAT HAS BEEN SAID

BY THE MAJORITY -- I MEAN

THE MINORITY LEADER OF THE

UNITED STATES SENATE.

FIRST OF ALL, NANCY

PELOSI, THE MINORITY

LEADER IN THE HOUSE,

QUOTE, "LITERALLY A KILLER

FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE."

$4.3 TRILLION.

AND SCHUMER CALLED IT A

COMIC BOOK VILLAIN-BAD

BUDGET.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT,

$4.3 TRILLION.

IT IS LIKE THROWING

GRANDMOTHER OVER THE

CLIFF.

IT IS INSANE THAT THOSE

PEOPLE WOULD SAY THAT.

THEY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH

ECONOMIC REALITY.

AND AS THE BUDGET DIRECTOR

WAS SAYING, LOOK, IT IS

TIME TO STOP WORRYING

ALWAYS ABOUT WHO IS

GETTING THE RECIPIENT OF

THE MONEY, AND WORRY ABOUT

THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO PAY

THE BILLS.

OKAY.

WELL, WE'LL HAVE MORE

ABOUT THAT AS THE DAY GOES

ON.

> AFTER VISITING SAUDI

ARABIA AND ISRAEL,

PRESIDENT TRUMP WENT ON TO

THE VATICAN, WHERE HE MET

WITH THE POPE.

OUR DAVID BRODY IS

TRAVELLING WITH PRESIDENT

TRUMP, AND HE BRINGS US

THIS STORY FROM THAT

HISTORIC MEETING.

David: THIS WORLD

RELIGION TRIP HAS HAD IT

ALL: KINGS IN THE ISLAMIC

WORLD, A PRIME MINISTER IN

ISRAEL, AND THEN THE POPE.

IT'S BEEN A RELIGIOUS

WORLD-WIND FOR A PRESIDENT

TRYING IN HIS BID TO ROOT

OUT TERRORISM, BY RALLYING

THE THREE MAG MAJOR RELIGIONS.

A SCULPTED OLIVE TREE,

SYMBOLIZING PEACE.

AND THE POPE GAVE THE

PRESIDENT A FEW BOOKS TO

READ, INCLUDING "THE JOY

OF THE GOSPEL," WHICH

TALKS ABOUT HAVING A

PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH

JESUS, ALONG WITH FIGHTING

FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AROUND

THE WORLD.

CBN NEWS HAS HAD AN

UP-CLOSE VIEW OF THE

EVENTS UNFOLDING ON THE

PRESIDENT'S TRIP.

WEE WERE PART OF A SELECT

GROUP OF THE MEDIA WHO

CAME TO THE VATICAN TO

WITNESS A BIT OF HISTORY.

SENIOR ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIALS TELL CBN NEWS

THAT THE WORLD RELIGION

TOUR WAS DONE

INTENTIONALLY, TO COME TO

PLACES LIKE THIS, THE

VATICAN -- WE ARE IN THE

COURTYARD -- AND BASICALLY

RESET THAT RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE POPE, WHICH AT

TIMES HAD BEEN A BIT

TESTEE.

THE PRESIDENT TRUMP/HOPE

SPAT GOES BACK TO THE

POPE'S RESISTANCE TO

TRUMP'S BUILDING A WALL.

HE SAYS, SOMEONE WHO

THINKS ABOUT BUILDING

WALLS AND NOT BRIDGES IS

NOT A CHRISTIAN.

TRUMP FIRED BACK.

A RELIGIOUS LEADER TO

QUESTION A PERSON'S FAITH

IS DISGRACEFUL.

I'M PROUD TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

THE OTHER WHO SAYS

WALLS, NOT BRIDGES, IS

SOMETHING WHICH YOU CANNOT

RECONCILE.

David: NINA SHAY,

WITH THE HUDSON INSTITUTE,

TELLS CBN NEWS COMING HERE

TO THE VATICAN IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO MEND

FENCES.

CERTAINLY THE POPE IS

THE LEADER OF A CHURCH

THAT HAS MILLIONS OF

FOLLOWERS.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT HE

MAKE PEACE WITH POPE

FRANCIS, AND VICE VERSA.

David: BESIDES

IMMIGRATION, THERE ARE

OTHER STAR CONTRASTS

BETWEEN BOTH LEADERS.

THEY DON'T SEE EYE TO EYE

ON CLIMATE CHANGE, THE

PRESIDENT HINTING TO POINT

OUT THE PARIS CLIMATE

AGREEMENT.

BUT THEY AGREE ON OTHER

ISSUES, LIKE STOPPING

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION.

AND ANOTHER TOPIC,

FIGHTING HUMAN

TRAFFICKING, SOMETHING

TRUMP'S DAUGHTER, IVANKA,

IS PUSHING HARD FOR WHILE

HERE IN ROME.

PLENTY OF IMPORTANT ISSUES

IN A WORLD THAT SOMETIMES

SEEMS TO GET MORE VOLATILE

AND DARK BY THE DAY.

DARKER BY THE DAY.

THE PRESIDENT BELIEVES THE

THREE MAJOR RELIGIONS CAN

HAVE A BIG SAY IN THE

OUTCOME.

Pat: DAVID IS WITH US

NOW FROM ROME.

HAS THE TRUMP TEAM BE

HAPPY WITH THEIR MEETING

WITH THE POPE?

David: YES,

ABSOLUTELY, PAT.

NOT ONLY HAVE THEY BEEN

HAPPY WITH THE MEETING

WITH THE POPE HERE IN ROME

TODAY, OR THIS MORNING,

THEY'VE BEEN ESTATIC ABOUT

THIS TRIP.

QUITE FRANKLY, THE REVIEWS

OR "WONDABAR," WELL, WE'RE

NOT IN GERMANY.

MAYBE TRUMP SHOULD SPEND

SOME MORE TIME OVER HERE

IN EUROPE.

THE REVIEWS HAVE BEEN

GREAT.

EVERYWHERE FROM SAUDI

ARABIA TO ISRAEL AND INTO

ROME, EVERYTHING HAS BEEN

GOING SWIMMINGLY FOR THE

WHITE HOUSE.

THEY HAVE BEEN PLANNING

THIS SINCE THE EARLY

TRANSITION DAYS.

AND JARED KUSHNER IS

REALLY BEHIND A LOT OF

THIS.

IN ESSENCE, HE IS THE

MIDEAST PEACE GUY.

HE HAS BEEN DEALING WITH

THE SAUDI FAMILY, AND HE

IS THE ONE TO WATCH FOR AS

WE MOVE FORWARD HERE, PAT.

Pat: HOW ABOUT THE

POPE -- THERE ARE A NUMBER

OF POINTS OF DISAGREEMENT

BETWEEN TRUMP AND THE

POPE.

HAVE THEY BEEN SETTLED?

DID THEY TALK ABOUT ANY OF

THESE CONTENTIOUS ISSUES?

David: WELL, WHAT WE

UNDERSTAND IS THAT WHEN

THE ACTUAL MEETING TOOK

PLACE, THE AUDIENCE, IF

YOU WILL, BETWEEN THE POPE

AND THE PRESIDENT -- THOSE

WERE THE ONLY TWO IN THE

ROOM.

SO NOW WE START TO HEAR

THE TRICKLE AS TO EXACTLY

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE ROOM.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION CAME

UP.

BUT THEY SEE EYE TO EYE ON

THAT.

OBVIOUSLY THE ISSUES ARE

CLIMATE CHANGE AND

IMMIGRATION, AS WE

DISCUSSED IN THE PEACE.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT THOSE

DID COME UP AS WELL, BUT

THE DETAILS -- YOU KNOW,

THE DEVIL IS IN THE

DETAILS -- NOT QUITE THERE

YET.

THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO

MAKE SURE HE CAME TO ROME,

AND UNDERSTAND THAT HE

NEEDS THIS POPE.

HE NEEDS THIS POPE TO, IN

ESSENCE, BE MORE CREDIBLE

ON THE INTERNATIONAL

STAGE.

THAT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR

THIS WHITE HOUSE, AT LEAST

THE WAY THEY SEE IT, PAT.

Pat: IT IS A LITTLE

IRONIC THAT THE POPE WAS

CRITICIZING THE IDEA OF

BUILDING A WALL.

HE LIVES IN AN AREA THAT

IS SURROUNDED BY THE WALL.

THE VATICAN HAS A WALL

WITH GUARDS.

David: WELL, YOU

KNOW, AND THAT'S ONE OF

THE THINGS I KNOW -- LOOK,

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF

CRITICISM THROWN AT THIS

POPE, ESPECIALLY FROM THE

SOCIAL JUSTICE ASPECT OF

IT ALL.

BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU --

I'M NOT GOING TO SAY THAT

WE'VE HEARD SOCIAL JUSTICE

OUT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP

BECAUSE THAT'S A VERY

TOXIC PHRASE.

BUT WE HAVE HEARD MORE OF

THAT -- HOW DO I SAY IT --

KUMBAYA SPIRIT ON THIS

OVERSEAS TRIP.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS KIND OF

LIKE THE ALIEN WHO COMES

TO EARTH AND SAYS, I COME

IN PEACE.

THAT HAS BEEN HI HIS MANTRA

THE WHOLE TIME.

SO FAR IT HAS WORKED VERY

WELL.

WHETHER OR NOT IT CAN WORK

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THAT

REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

BUT THEY'RE VERY PLEASED,

PAT.

Pat: DO YOU THINK THE

TRUMP TEAM UNDERSTANDS THE

DEEP DIVISIONS THAT TAKE

PLACE BETWEEN THE ISRAELIS

AND THE PALESTINIANS?

David: THEY

UNDERSTAND THEM, BUT,

LOOK -- LET'S IN PACK THIS

UNPACK THISA LITTLE BIT.

SOME FOLKS IN THE

ADMINISTRATION UNDERSTAND

IT.

AND THERE ARE OTHER FOLKS

WHO UNDERSTAND IT EVEN

FURTHER.

SO THERE IS THE

PARAGRAPH-DEEP FOLKS AND

THOSE WHO REALLY

UNDERSTAND IT.

AND THERE IS A DISCUSSION

BETWEEN BOTH SIDES AS TO

EXACTLY HOW TO DO THIS.

AND THAT'S WHY HE WENT TO

SAUDI ARABIA FIRST.

BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE NEEDS

TO GET THE SAUDIS ON BOARD

HERE.

AND THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION BELIEVES

THAT IRAN IS THE KEY TO

ALL OF THIS.

THAT A COMMON ENEMY WILL

HELP THE SUNNIS AND THE

ISRAELIS, NOT NECESSARY

START TO HOLD HANDS AND

SAY WE ARE THE WORLD, SO

TO SPEAK, BUT DO ENOUGH TO

IN ESSENCE FIGHT THIS

SCURGE THAT IS CALLED

TERRORISM.

IT FEELS A LITTLE BIT OF

PIE IN THE SKY HERE.

BUT DONALD TRUMP IS

THE-WHEELETHEWHEELER AND DEALER, AND IF

YOU COMBINE TRUMP'S

D.N.A., WHICH IS RELATION

RELATIONAL AND THE

DEAL-MAKING AND HE HAS A

GREAT PERSONALITY, AND

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU TRUSTS

HIM, AND ABBAS SEEMS TO BE

WILLING TO AT LEAST DO

SOMETHING -- THE PROOF IS

IN THE PUDDING ON THAT

ONE.

AND THE SAUDIS LOVE TRUMP.

WHY DO THEY LOVE HIM?

I THINK IT IS A NO-BRAINER

HERE.

THEY SEE HIM AS POWERFUL.

HE HAS GOLD-PLATED LIVING

ROOMS.

HE IS THERE TYPE OF GUY,

FOR SURE.

Pat: LAST QUESTION: I

TALKED TO MICHAEL OREN,

AND HE THINKS IF WE MOVE

THE EMBASSY -- I DON'T

WANT TO PUT WORDS IN HIS

MOUTH, BUT IT WILL BE MET

WITH A BIG YAWN.

THERE WILL NOT BE SOME

DEVASTATING CHANGE AND

WE'LL BE SUBJECT TO

ATTACKS ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY

THAT TRUMP WILL GO BACK TO

HIS ORIGINAL PROMISE TO

MOVE THE EMBASSY TO

JERUSALEM?

David: IT IS A CARD

THAT HE WANTS TO

POTENTIALLY PLAY, BUT HE

DOESN'T WANT TO PLAY IT

RIGHT NOW.

I THINK THAT'S THE KEY FOR

HIM.

FOR HIM IT IS THE ART OF

THE DEAL.

SO IN THE MIND OF THE

WHITE HOUSE, IT IS, LIKE,

LOOK, PALESTINIANS COME TO

THE TABLE, OR IF YOU'RE

NOT GOING TO COME TO THE

TABLE AND NEGOTIATE IN

GOOD FAITH, I MAY NOT SIGN

A WAIVER.

IF I DON'T SIGN A WAIVER

IN SIX MONTHS, THAT MEANS

THE EMBASSY IS GOING TO

JERUSALEM.

HE HAS THAT CARD TO PLAY.

SO I DON'T THINK IT IS OUT

OF THE REALM OF

POSSIBILITY THAT THAT

PROMISE WILL BE FULFILLED.

IT WILL BE FULFILLED AT

SOME POINT IF HE CHOOSES

TO DO SO.

HE STILL HAS IT OUT THERE.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING

IT IS A BROKEN CAMPAIGN

PROMISE.

HOLD ON FOR A MOMENT.

LET'S SEE HOW THIS PROCESS

PLAYS OUT.

WE CAN DECIDE THAT MORE IN

ABOUT THREE YEARS OR SO.

Pat: DAVID, LOOK

FORWARD TO MORE OF YOUR

REPORTS AS YOU TRAVEL ON

WITH THE PRESIDENT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

DAVID BRODY, OUR

CORRESPONDENT ON THE ROAD

AGAIN.

WENDY WHA, WHAT DO WE HAVE?

Wendy: IT'S VERY

EXCITING.

VERY GOOD REPORTING.

> COMING UP, THE MOMENT

JEWS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR

FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.

Reporter: THE PRAYER

AND HOPE OF MANY

GENERATIONS, NEXT YEAR IN

JERUSALEM --

SUDDENLY IT BECOMES

THIS YEAR IN JERUSALEM.

Wendy: HEAR HOW

ISRAELI PARATROOPERS

RECAPTURED THE TEMPLE

MOUNT, NEXT.

Pat: WE'RE LIVING IN

EXCITING DAYS, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

AND YOU'RE WATCHING

HISTORY UNFOLD BEFORE YOU.

IT WAS ONLY A WAR THAT

LASTED SIX DAYS, BUT IT

CHANGED ISRAEL IN TH AND THE

MIDDLE EAST.

OUR SCOTT ROSS TALKED WITH

AN AUTHORITY AND EXPERT

ABOUT THE BATTLE THAT

REUNITED JERUSALEM IN

1967, AND HOW THE -- WELL,

THE VESTAGES OF THAT WAR

WENT TO SHAPE ISRAEL.

Reporter: THE TEMPLE

MOUNT IS IN OUR HANDS, THE

FAMOUS WORDS OF COMMANDER

MOTTA GUR, WHO'S MEN

HELPED REUNITE JERUSALEM,

FULFILLING A

2,000-YEAR-OLD DREAM.

THIS BOOK IS A STORY OF

AN ISRAELI BAND OF

BROTHERS, YOUNG ISRAELI

MEN WHO GAVE THE JEWISH

PEOPLE THEIR GREATEST

VICTORY, I WOULD SAY IN

HISTORY, PROBABLY SINCE

THE EXODUS FROM EGYPT.

SUDDENLY WE'RE BORN AGAIN

AS A PEOPLE.

Reporter: I SPOKE

WITH AMERICAN-BORN ISRAELI

YOSSI KLEIN HALEVI ABOUT

HIS STORY OF THE ISRAELI

PARATROOPERS WHO REUNITED

JERUSALEM AND DIVIDED A

NICE.

WE WERE LIKE DREAMERS.

THEN OUR MOUTHS WILL BE

FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, OUR

TONGUES WITH JOYOUS SONGS.

THAT'S WHERE YOU GOT THE

TITLE.

HE TOOK ME TO THE MOUNT OF

OLIVES WHERE MOTTA GUR

COMMANDED HIS TROOPS.

THE PARATROOPERS CAME

TO THIS SPOT ON THE

MORNING OF JUNE 7th,

1967.

MOTTA GUR, A VERY FAMOUS

PHOTOGRAPH, IS LOOKING OUT

ON TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND

MAKING THE FINAL

PREPARATIONS IN HIS MIND

FOR THE DESCENT AND THE

CONQUEST OF THE OLD CITY.

SO HE SAYS, PARATROOPERS

OF BRIGADE 55, AND HE

TELLS THEM THAT JEWS

WAITED THOUSANDS OF YEARS

FOR THIS MOMENT.

YOU ARE THE ONES WHO ARE

PRIVILEGES TO RESTORE

JERUSALEM TO THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

Reporter: WE RETRACED

THEIR STEPS TO LION'S GATE

OF THE OLD CITY.

THIS IS THE GATE THAT

THE PARATROOPERS, THE

ISRAELI SOLDIERS, ENTERED

ON JUNE 7, 1967.

AND THEN WHEN THEY REACHED

THE TEMPLE MOUNT, THE

FAMOUS WORDS OF MOTTA GUR

WERE, "THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS

IN OUR HANDS."

AND THEY FIND THE WALL,

AND THERE ARE THESE

INCREDIBLY EMOTIONAL

SCENES OF BATTLE-HARDENED

PARATROOPERS, MOST OF THEM

SECULAR, WEEPING AT THE

WALL.

Reporter: SO THE

PRAYER AND THE HOPE OF

MANY GENERATIONS, NEXT

YEAR IN JERUSALEM --

SUDDENLY IT BECOMES

THIS YEAR IN JERUSALEM.

Reporter: HE

PERSONALLIZEPERSONALIZES THE HISTORY

OF ISRAEL SINCE THEN

THROUGH THE EYES OF SIX

SUCH DREAMERS.

I FELT WHAT WAS MISSING

IN THE WAY PEOPLE RELATE

TO THE STORY OF ISRAEL WAS

THAT PERSONAL CONNECTION.

I ALWAYS WONDERED, WHAT

HAPPENED TO THE GUYS WHO

LIBERATED THE WESTERN WALL

IN 1967?

I GREW UP WITH THAT IMAGE

AS SYMBOLIZING THE LIKE

DREAMERS STORY OF ISRAEL.

Reporter: THESE

PARATROOPERS DO THEY

REALLY REFLECT AND

MICROCOSEM THE STORY OF

THIS COUNTRY?

THE RANGE YOU HAVE IN

THIS BOOK ARE DEEPLY

RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, WEST

BANK SETTLERS, SECULAR

ISRAELIS, TEL AVIV

RESIDENTS, KIBBUTZICS, AND

LEFT WINGERS, AND IT WAS

VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME TO

TELL THE STORY OF THE

WHOLE ISRAEL.

BECAUSE THE WAY I

UNDERSTAND THE JEWISH

PEOPLE IS THAT WE'RE A

FAMILY.

Reporter: IT TOOK HIM

12 OF HIS 32 YEARS IN

ISRAEL TO WRITE THE BOOK.

ONE OF MY CHARACTERS

STARTS OFF AS A BOY,

LIVING ON ONE OF THESE

RADICAL SOCIALIST

KIBBUTZIUM.

HE FIGHTS THE TRADE UNIONS

AND HE CREATES THE FIRST

PRIVATIZED COMPANY IN THE

STATE OF ISRAEL.

AND OPENS THE WAY TO THE

HIGH-TECH FREE ECONOMY

THAT WE HAVE TODAY.

Reporter: ONE BECOME

KNOWN AS ISRAEL'S BOB

DYLAN, AND THE OTHER

STARTED THE SETTLEMENT

MOVEMENT IN JUDEA AND

SAMARIA.

HE SAYS HIS BOOK TRIES TO

SHOW THE STRUGGLE WITHIN

THE ISRAELI SOUL OVER

MAKING PEACE WITH THE

PALESTINIANS AND DIVIDING

JERUSALEM.

IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD,

I'VE GOT JEWISH NEIGHBORS,

I'VE GOT ARAB NEIGHBORS.

IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD,

IN THE SAME BUILDING.

NOW, HOW DO YOU SEPARATE

THAT?

HOW DO YOU DIVIDE A CITY

WITHOUT, GOD FORBID,

DESTROYING IT?

I DON'T SEE HOW JERUSALEM

CAN BE SHARED BETWEEN TWO

POLITICAL ENTITIES THAT

ARE EMERGING OUT OF A

100-YEAR WAR.

Reporter: AND PEOPLE

FROM MY CHRISTIAN VIEW, WE

TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY THE

PSALM MISIST WHEN HE SAYS,

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM, MAY THEY

PROSPER WHO LOVE YOU.

AS YOU SIT HERE, HOW DO

YOU PRAY FOR THIS CITY?

I PRAY THAT I

PERSONALLY SHOULD BE

WORTHY OF LIVING HERE, OF

HOLDING THIS STORY AT THIS

MOMENT.

I PRAY THAT THE PEOPLE OF

ISRAEL WILL BE WORTHY OF

THIS STORY.

I PRAY FOR OUR STRENGTH.

I PRAY FOR OUR GENEROSITY

OF SPIRIT.

I PRAY THAT WE BE

PROTECTED FROM HATRED,

THAT OUR HEARTS BE OPEN TO

LOVE ALL OF THE PEOPLE OF

THIS LAND AND ALL OF THOSE

WHO TURN TOWARD HIS CITY

WITH HOPE.

AND I PRAY FOR ALL OF US.

THAT'S MY PRAYER.

Pat: A TREMENDOUS

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE TO

THE REUNITING OF

JERUSALEM.

I MENTIONED IT BEFORE, AND

I'LL SAY IT AGAIN, JESUS

CHRIST SAID IT VERY

CLEARLY, JERUSALEM SHOULD

BE TRODDEN UNDER FOOT OF

THE GENTILES, UNTIL THE

TIME OF THE GENTILES ARE

FULFILLED.

THAT TOOK PLACE.

JERUSALEM HAD BEEN TRODDEN

UNDER THE FOOT OF THE

GENTILES WITH

NEBUCHADNEZZAR, AND UNTIL

THAT TIME THERE HAS BEEN A

GENTILE IN CHARGE OF

JERUSALEM, UNTIL THE

SIX-DAY WAR, WHERE THE

JEWS FINALLY TOOK OVER

THEIR OLD CITY.

TRUST ME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, WE'RE NOT GOING

TO SEE PROPHECY DESTROYED

AND THAT WORD OF JESUS

BROKEN.

IT WILL NOT HAPPEN.

PEOPLE MAY TRY TO DO IT,

BUT GOD WILL NOT LET IT BE

DONE.

SO WE'RE APPROACHING THE

50th ANNIVERSARY -- 50

IS A VERY IMPORTANT NUMBER

IN THE BIBLE.

THE 50th ANNIVERSARY OF

THE REUNITING OF

JERUSALEM.

VERY, VERY SIGNIFICANT,

AND WE CELEBRATE IT ALONG

WITH OUR JEWISH FRIENDS.

WENDY?

Wendy: YES.

AS YOU JUST MENTIONED, PAT

SAID WE HAVE BEEN

DISCUSSING THAT FOR WEEKS,

THE APPROACHING 50th

ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIX-DAY

WAR.

THAT'S, OF COURSE, WHEN

ISRAEL WON THE BATTLE TO

REUNITE JERUSALEM.

AND THE CBN DOCUDRAMA THAT

RECOUNTS THIS CRITICAL WAR

HIT THEATERS LAST NIGHT.

MOVIE-GOERS ARE RAISING

ABOUT "IN OUR HANDS: THE

BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM."

AND CBN NEWS WAS THERE TO

HEAR WHY THE FILM IS

CAPTURING THE HEARTS OF

VIEWERS.

Reporter: FROM THE

BIG APPLE TO OUR NATION'S

CAPITAL, MOVIE-GOERS ARE

RAISING ABOUT "IN OUR

HANDS: THE BATTLE FOR

JERUSALEM."

IT WAS WELL-DONE.

WOW, I TOTALLY LOVED

IT.

Reporter: THE

CBN-PRODUCED DOCUDRAMA

RECOUNTS THE HARROWING

TALE OF ISRAEL'S SIX-DAY

WAR, AND THE PARATROOPERS

WHO LED THEM TO VICTORY.

HERE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.,

THAT TALE OF SURVIVAL CAME

TO LIFE ON THE BIG SCREEN

AND DEBUTED TO SOLDOUT

AUDIENCES ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

INCLUDED IN THE AUDIENCE,

REDSKINS QUARTERBACK KIRK

COUSINS.

IT BECAME VERY REAL TO

ME.

IN THE NEWS, ISRAEL SEEMS

LIKE A FAR-OFF PLACE WITH

STORIES THAT DON'T AFFECT

ME ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS.

BUT WATCHING THAT

DOCUMENTARY AND HEARING

MR. ROBERTSON'S STORY AT

THE END.

IT BECOMES VERY REAL AND

HITS HOME.

Reporter:

THEATER-GOERS HERE SAY THE

MOVIE HAD A VERY PERSONAL

MEANING.

MY HUSBAND IS

CHRISTIAN, I'M JEWISH, SO

WE HAVE AN IMMEDIATE BOND

RIGHT THERE.

BUT IT ALSO GIVES ME HOPE

THAT IN THIS WORLD

THERE -- IT IS VISIBLE HOW

JEWS AND CHRISTIANS CAN

LIVE SO PEACEFULLY

TOGETHER AND IN SUCH

HARMONY TOGETHER AND WITH

SUCH RESPECT.

Reporter: AND THAT

FEELING WAS MUTUAL ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

HERE AT THE NEW YORK CITY

PREMIERE OF "IN OUR

HANDS," WE HAD A

PREDOMINANTLY JEWISH

AUDIENCE, MANY OF WHOM

REMEMBERED THE EVENTS OF

THE SIX-DAY WAR FIRSTHAND.

THEY CAME OUT EMOTIONAL,

THANKFUL THAT A YOUNGER

GENERATION WOULD GET TO

LEARN THE LESSONS OF

ISRAEL'S HISTORY.

IT IS AN EMOTIONAL

EXPERIENCE FOR ME.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE.

I SPENT HALF OF IT CRYING.

IT'S A STORY I KNOW.

MY FAMILY IS ISRAELI.

I KNOW SO MANY SOLDIERS,

BUT IT WAS REALLY RETOLD

IN AN AMAZING FASHION.

Reporter: AND DEEP IN

THE HEART OF TEXAS, MORE

OF THE SAME.

WITH MOVIE-GOERS SAYING

THAT THE MOVIE COULDN'T

HAVE COME AT A BETTER

TIME.

IT IS SUCH A VITAL TIME

WE ARE LIVING IN.

WE NEED MORE AWARENESS

ABOUT JERUSALEM AND ITS

ROLE IN THE WORLD.

IT WILL MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN THE HEARTS

OF PEOPLE, TO SEE THIS AND

BE REMINDED OF GOD'S HAND

ON THAT NATION.

Reporter: IT IS A

MESSAGE SPREADING FAST.

> I WAS ALREADY TEXTING

FRIENDS ON THE WAY OUT,

TELLING THEM TO COME AND

SEE IT.

Reporter: HOW DID YOU

LIKE IT?

VERY MUCH.

Reporter: IT IS

CAPTURING THE HEART OF A

MODERN AUDIENCE.

AMBER C. STRONG FOR CBN

NEWS IN WASHINGTON.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

AMBER.

AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE

WHO WENT OUT TO THE

THEATERS LAST NIGHT AND

WATCHED THE MOVIE.

HERE ARE SOME MORE

COMMENTS THAT ARE COMING

IN.

BELLA SAYS, "I WOULD LIKE

TO THANK GORDON ROBERTSON

ON THE GREAT MOVIE HE

BROUGHT ABOUT ENTITLED "IN

OUR HANDS."

I WATCHED IT LAST NIGHT IN

A PRETTY FULL CINEMA.

IT IS A VERY MOVING FILM.

SO WELL-MADE.

DONNA SAYS "I JUST SAW "IN

OUR HANDS," AND WE LEFT

PRAISING GOD AND PRAYING

FOR JERUSALEM.

THANK YOU, CBN."

DESPITE THE FACT THAT

MULTIPLE THEATER HAD MANY

SHOWINGS, MANY WERE SOLD

OUT.

BECAUSE OF THE

OVERWHELMING DEMAND, THERE

WILL BE A SPECIAL ENCORE

PRESENTATION OF "IN OUR

HANDS" ON JUNE 1st,

7 p.m. EASTERN TIME.

TO GET TICKETS OR TO SEE

WHERE IT IS PLAYING, GO

TO inourhands1967.com.

IT IS NOT 7 p.m. EASTERN

TIME, BUT JUST 7 p.m..

> UP NEXT, HE WAS AN

AWARD-WINNING RECORD

PRODUCER WHO RUBBED

SHOULDERS WITH MUSIC'S

ELITE, AND HE WAS

MISERABLE EVERY STEP OF

THE WAY.

I BOUGHT THREE BOTTLES

OF SLEEPING PILLS.

I CHECKED MYSELF INTO THE

RITZ CARLTON, AND I WAS

COMMITTED I WAS NOT GOING

TO CHECK OUT.

Wendy: FIND OUT HOW A

PHONE CALL SAVED HIS LIFE,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" AS

THIS MOMENTOUS DAY IN

HISTORY, AND THINGS ARE

HAPPENING AROUND THE

WORLD, VERY INTERESTING.

THE WORLD IS JUST IN A

STATE OF FLUX, AND WE'RE

TRYING TO BRING YOU UP TO

DATE ON WHAT IS HAPPENING.

BUT NOW WE'RE GOING TO GO

TO A MUSIC EXECUTIVE,

JASON DAVIS, WHO WORKED

WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST

NAMES IN THE BUSINESS.

AND JASON HAD THE BANK

ACCOUNT TO SHOW FOR IT.

HE HAD POWER, PRESTIGE,

THAT HE HAD DESPERATELY

CRAZECRAVED ALL HIS LIFE.

BUT AT THE PINNACLE OF HIS

CAREER, JASON MADE A

DECISION: HE CHECKED INTO

A RITZ CARLTON HOTEL ONE

NIGHT AND PLANNED TO END

IT ALL.

AT 12 YEARS OLD, MY

PARENTS TOOK ME TO A

CONCERT.

IT WAS IN A BIG ARENA.

AND I WAS THIS BOY THAT

WAS NOT VALIDATED.

I DID NOT FEEL ACCEPTED.

I DID NOT FEEL NOTICED.

AND HERE WAS THIS GUY ON

STAGE IN FRONT OF 20,000

PEOPLE IN A SENSE BEING

WORSHIPPED AND LOVED.

Reporter: JASON DAVIS

STARTED WRITING SONGS AND

PERFORMING THEM WITH HIS

FRIEND, CHRIS.

BY HIGH SCHOOL, JASON KNEW

WHERE HE WAS HEADED.

I TOLD PROBABLY A

THOUSAND OR 1500 CASSETTE

TAPES, JUST IN MY SCHOOL,

OVER A COUPLE YEAR PERIOD.

I REALIZED IN HIGH SCHOOL

THIS IS WHAT I LOVE.

THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO DO.

Reporter: AFTER HIGH

SCHOOL JASON GOT A DAY JOB

AND CONTINUED WRITING AND

SELLING HIS SONGS.

THEN AT 23 HE WROTE HIS

FIRST BIG HIT, "CAPTURED."

IT SHOT UP THE CHARTS

AND BECOME A REALLY BIG

CHRISTIAN HIT SONG.

I MADE ENOUGH MONEY WHERE

I WAS ABLE TO QUIT MY JOB

AND SPEND A SOLID YEAR

FOCUSING ON MUSIC AND

TRYING TO GO AFTER IT.

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW GOD AT

ALL.

Reporter: JASON USED

THAT ONE HIT AS HIS

CALLING CARD IN THE MUSIC

BUSINESS.

WITHIN EIGHT YEARS, HE

CLIMBED HIS WAY TO THE

TOP.

I WAS TAKING MEETINGS

WITH DR. DREY'S PEOPLE AND

EMINEM'S PEOPLE AND SNOOP

DOGG.

AND I WAS DEVELOPING

ARTISTS THAT WERE GETTING

MULTI-MILLION RECORD

DEALS.

I HAD ALL OF THE MONEY I

COULD EVER ASK FOR.

I HAD EVERYTHING THAT I

DREAMED OF, EVERYTHING.

AND IT WAS THE MOST EMPTY

AND MISERABLE I HAD EVER

BEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE

BECAUSE I REALIZED THAT I

HAD GOTTEN EVERYTHING THAT

I WANTED, AND I STILL DID

NOT FEEL LOVED.

I STILL DID NOT FEEL LIKE

I HAD LOVE IN MY LIFE.

AND WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING

LEFT TO BUY AND NOTHING

LEFT TO DISTRACT ME, I GOT

TO THE POINT WHERE I SAID,

IF THIS IS IT, IF THIS IS

WHAT YEARS AND YEARS AND

YEARS OF KILLING MYSELF

PRODUCES, IF THIS IS WHAT

MAKING IT LOOKS LIKE, I

DON'T WANT TO BE HERE

ANYMORE.

AND THE NEXT DAY I WENT

OUT AND I BOUGHT THREE

BOTTLES OF SLEEPING PILLS.

I CHECKED MYSELF INTO THE

RITZ CARLTON.

AND I WAS COMMITTED THAT I

WAS NOT GOING TO CHECK

OUT.

Reporter: AS JASON

STARTED TO TAKE THE PILLS,

HIS CELL PHONE RANG.

HIS BUSINESS PARTNER ASKED

IF HE WAS AVAILABLE TO

MEET WITH A CLIENT THE

NEXT DAY.

I HUNG UP THE PHONE AND

SAID, NOW WHAT AM I GOING

TO DO.

I'M GOING TO CHECK OUT AND

TAKE THIS MEETING

TOMORROW, AND THEN I'LL

JUST CHECK BACK IN AND

I'LL FINISH IT.

AND THE NEXT DAY AT THAT

MEETING, THIS GUY ASKED ME

IF I KNOW JESUS CHRIST.

AND NO ONE IN MY LIFE -- I

WAS 32 YEARS OLD, AND NO

ONE IN MY LIFE HAD EVER

ASKED ME THAT BEFORE.

Reporter: THEY TALKED

FOR HOURS, AND JASON

LEARNED ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

FOR THE FIRST TIME.

THE NEXT MORNING HE WENT

TO THE BEACH NEAR HIS

HOUSE.

I WAS LOOKING AT THE

DARK, DEEP BODY OF WATER

ON THE OCEAN, AND I WAS

NOTICEDED HONOTICING HOW WIDE AND VAST

THE DARKNESS OF THAT WATER

WAS.

AND I WAS TRACING THIS

NARROW PATH OF LIGHT BACK.

AND IT HIT ME THAT THE

LIGHT SOURCE WAS CALLED

THE SUN.

I CLOSED MY EYES IN THAT

MOMENT, AND I SAW THE

BRIGHTEST WHITE LIGHT, I

SAW THE FACE OF JESUS AND

BRIGHT, WHITE LIGHT, AND I

KNEW FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

MY LIFE THAT JESUS WAS GOD

AND THIS WAS REAL.

IT WAS THE MOST IMPACTFUL

MOMENT I'VE EVER HAD IN MY

LIFE.

IT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

MOMENT I'VE EVER HAD IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: JASON ASKED

JESUS CHRIST INTO HIS

HEART.

I STARTED READING WHAT

JESUS SAID IN THE BIBLE,

HOW HE SAID TO LIVE YOUR

LIFE.

I HURT A LOT OF PEOPLE

IN MY CHILDHOOD, A LOT OF

PEOPLE IN MY TEENAGED

YEARS AND IN MY 20s, AND

TO KNOW I WAS ACTUALLY

LOVED AND FORGIVEN DESPITE

ALL OF THAT DREW ME TO GOD

IN A WAY HE HAD MY HEART,

AND THAT'S WHEN I NOTICED

MY LIFE-CHANGING.

180-DEGREE CHANGE.

MY THOUGHTS STARTED

CHANGING.

MY HEART STARTED CHANGING.

MY VIEW OF PEOPLE STARTED

CHANGING.

Reporter: JASON

DOESN'T WRITE MUCH THESE

DAYS, BUT STILL WORKS IN

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.

NOW MARRIED, HE AND HIS

WIFE MANAGE SEVERAL

MUSICIANS AND PERFORMING

ARTISTS.

I LOVE CHRISTIAN MUSIC

PERSONALLY, BUT I ALSO

LOVE HELPING PEOPLE WITH

THE DREAM THATE THAT GOD PLANTED

IN THEM.

MY WORK IS NO LONGER ABOUT

ME GETTING GRATIFICATION

OR SATISFACTION.

IT IS ABOUT ME POURING

INTO OTHERS, LOVING

OTHERS, CARING AND

FIGHTING OTHERS.

THAT IS A RADICAL CHANGE

FROM WHERE I WAS, AND THE

ONLY THING THAT CHANGED

WAS JESUS.

Pat: THE SOURCE OF

LIGHT, THE SUN, THE SON OF

GOD IS THE SOURCE OF ALL

LIFE.

THE LIGHT WAS THE LIGHT OF

ALL MAN.

THE LIGHT CAME INTO THE

WORLD AND THE DARKNESS

COULDN'T OVERCOME IT.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE LIGHT

OF THE WORLD.

AND HE HAS LIFE AND JOY

AND PEACE.

YOU WANT THAT?

RIGHT NOW, JUST LIKE

JASON, I'M GOING TO GIVE

YOU A CHANCE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE A

BUNCH OF PILLS AND KILL

YOURSELF.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE

HOPELESS AND

DISRESPONDENT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LET A

BUSINESS REVERSAL TAKE

AWAY YOUR LIFE AND JOY.

THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU A

NEW START, A NEW

BEGINNING, A BRAND NEW YOU

IF YOU JUST TURN YOURSELF

OVER TO HIM.

RIGHT NOW I WANT YOU TO DO

SOMETHING.

I WANT TO YOU PRAY WITH ME

AT THIS VERY MOMENT.

PRAY THESE WORDS: JESUS --

THAT'S RIGHT -- JESUS, I

COME TO YOU.

I KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE

SOURCE OF LIFE.

AND I WANT THAT LIFE MORE

THAN ANYTHING.

LORD, I'M WILLING TO

SURRENDER EVERYTHING.

I'LL GIVE UP MY OWN

WORLDLY AMBITION.

I'LL GIVE UP MY SIN.

I'LL GIVE UP MY SELL

SELFISHNESS.

I'LL GIVE IT ALL UP FOR

YOU.

AND I SURRENDER TO YOU

RIGHT NOW.

AND I THANK YOU THAT YOU

HEARD MY PRAYER.

I MAKE YOU NOW, LORD,

LIGHT OF TH MY LIFE.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I'M

YOURS.

AND I THANK YOU, JESUS,

THAT YOU'VE HEARD MY

PRAYER.

THANK YOU.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I

WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

I TOOK THE TROUBLE SOME

TIME AGO TO GO INTO OUR

AUDIO ROOM AND TO MAKE A

RATHER COMPREHENSIVE AND

DETAILED ANALYSIS OF WHAT

YOU DO NEXT.

THIS IS CALLED "A NEW

DAY," AND IT'S A COMPACT

DISC.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE, ALONG WITH A LITTLE

BOOKLET.

IT IS RIGHT HERE FOR YOU.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, ALL

YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK UP

THE PHONE AND SAY, I'VE

PRAYED WITH PAT AND I'VE

GIVEN MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND HE HAS COME INTO MY

LIFE.

WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

1-800-700-7000.

IT'S 1-800-700-7000.

CALL RIGHT NOW AND SAY,

LOOK, I JUST FOUND THE

LORD.

MY LIFE IS TRANSFORMED.

WENDY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: IT IS A NEW

DAY, PAT.

> STILL AHEAD, SHE WAS

AN ACTRESS SEEKING THE

SPOTLIGHT, BUT NOW IT IS

NOT HER NAME SHE WANTS TO

MAKE FAMOUS.

LISA LLOYD TELLS US WHY

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: ONE DAY LISA

LLOYD WAS ON HER WAY TO AN

AUDITION.

AT THE TIME, SHE WAS

THINKING ABOUT HOW BADLY

SHE WANTED TO BE WHAT THE

DIRECTOR WAS LOOKING FOR.

THAT'S WHEN SHE REALIZED

HER GOALS WERE WAY OFF,

AND SHE WAS CHASING FAME

FOR THE WRONG PERSON.

Reporter: YOU MAY

HAVE SEEN ACTRESS LISA

LLOYD IN TV COMMERCIALS,

BUT HER ACTING ROLES

WEREN'T JUST ABOUT

BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL

CAREER.

LISA WANTED TO BE

VALIDATED AND SPENT YEARS

CHASING HER OWN FAME.

IN HER BOOK "CHASING

FAMOUS," LISA SHARES

EVENTS THAT CHANGED HER

LIFE FOREVER, AND WHY SHE

STEPPED OUT OF THE

SPOTLIGHT AND LEARNED TO

SHINE IT ON OTHERS.

Wendy: LISA LLOYD IS

WITH US NOW.

WELCOME TO THE PROGRAM.

THANK YOU, WENDY, FOR

HAVING ME.

Wendy: I JUST HEARD

YOUR INTRODUCTION TO THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH CAME FROM

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

YES.

I WAS WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" WHEN I WAS SIX YEARS

OLD.

I WAS WATCHING PUPPIES AND

PUPPETS, AND THEY WERE

TALKING ABOUT COMING TO

KNOW CHRIST, AND I SAID, I

WANT TO DO THAT.

Wendy: AFTER YOU WERE

A BELIEVER AND YOU

ACCEPTED JESUS, YOU SORT

OF PUT HIM ON THE BACK

BURBURNER.

WHAT HAPPENED?

WHEN I WAS IN HIGH

SCHOOL, I WAS LOOKING TO

BOYS FOR A PLACE OF LOVE,

A VOID THAT GOD WANTED TO

FILL.

I GAVE UP MY VIRGINITY

WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD.

AND THEN WHEN I WAS 18

YEARS OLD, I FOUND OUT I

WAS PREGNANT.

AND THOUGH I WAS A

CHRISTIAN, I WAS SCARED TO

TALK TO MY CHURCH OR MY

FRIENDS OR MY FAMILY.

AND I DECIDED THAT THE

ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF

THIS CRISIS PREGNANCY WAS

TO TERMINATE IT.

AND SO THAT'S WHAT I DID.

Wendy: WOW.

BUT THE AMAZING THING

IS THAT A COUPLE OF MONTHS

LATER, I WAS TALKING WITH

A FRIEND OF MINE AND SHE

WAS REMINDING ME OF HOW

MUCH GOD LOVES ME.

AND SHE SAID, GOD WANTS TO

USE YOU, LISA, FOR ALL

KINDS OF THINGS, BUT HE

CAN'T IF YOU'RE GOING TO

KEEP GOING DOWN THIS PATH.

AND IT WAS LIKE THE SCALES

FELL OFF MY EYES AND I SAW

MY SIN FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN YEARS.

I SAID, GOD, CAN WE JUST

START OVER?

CAN I GET A REDO?

AND I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT

JUST ENVELOPE MY SOUL.

I TURNED 180 DEGREES IN

THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION,

AND I'VE NEVER BEEN THE

SAME.

Wendy: WHY DID YOU

GET INTO ACTING?

I STARTED OUT AS A

DANCER.

I STARTED DANCING AS A

LITTLE GIRL.

AND THEN I GOT INTO

THEATER WHEN I WAS IN HIGH

SCHOOL.

AND I STARTED DOING SOME

OF THAT.

AND THEN I MAJORED IN IT

IN COLLEGE AND GOT AN

AGENT AFTER COLLEGE AND

MOVED TO L.A. FOR A LITTLE

BIT.

I MET MY HUSBAND DOING

THEATER.

Wendy: YOU WERE IN

DALLAS, AT A THEATER

PRODUCTION, WHEN YOU MET A

MAN NAMED MARCUS, WHO

BECAME YOUR HUSBAND.

YES.

Wendy: WHAT WAS

SPECIAL ABOUT HIM?

I NOTICED THAT

EVERYBODY LIKED HIM.

HE WAS A MAGNET TO PEOPLE,

FOR PEOPLE.

AND WHEN WE STARTED

TALKING WITH EACH OTHER

AND GOT TO KNOW EACH

OTHER, I REALIZED THAT

JESUS WAS EVERYTHING TO

HIM.

LIKE, HE LOVED GOD MORE

THAN ANYTHING ELSE.

AND I WAS, LIKE, I NEED TO

KIND OF HANG ON WITH THIS

ONE.

I NEED TO STAY WITH THIS

GUY.

Wendy: YOU WERE A

CHRISTIAN AT THAT TIME,

BUT IT WAS STILL SOMETHING

THAT WAS NOT YOUR FOCUS.

YEAH.

CHRISTIANITY -- I LOVED

THE LORD AND I LOVED

ACTING, BUT IT WAS ON THE

WAY TO AN AUDITION ONE DAY

WHEN I SENSED GOD SAY,

LISA, I WANT YOU TO BE

MORE CONCERNED WITH MAKING

ME FAMOUS AT THIS AUDITION

THAN YOURSELF.

EVEN THOUGH I LOVED GOD, I

ALWAYS HAD KIND OF STILL

BE FOCUSED ON ME.

AND THAT WAS A

GAME-CHANGER FOR ME.

I REALLY WANTED TO -- I

WAS LIKE, WELL, I'M GOING

TO GO INTO THIS AUDITION,

AND INSTEAD OF WANTING TO

BE ENOUGH, CHOOSE ME,

SELECT ME -- YOU KNOW

WHAT?

GOD HAS ALREADY CHOSEN ME

AND SELECTED ME.

SO I'M JUST GOING TO WORRY

ABOUT GLORIFYING GOD AND

THAT'S GOING TO BE MY

FOCUS AS OPPOSED TO BEING

ACCEPTED.

Wendy: THAT'S SO

FREEING, ISN'T IT?

IT IS TOTALLY FREEING.

Wendy: BACK TO MARKS MARK

MARCUS, YOU GUYS STARTED

DATING, AND WERE YOU

NERVOUS ABOUT TELLING HIM

ABOUT THE ABORTION AND

YOUR PAST?

I WAS NERVOUS, BECAUSE

I KNEW I WAS A NEW PERSON

AND HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT

PERSON.

I WAS WORRIED ABOUT WHAT

HE WOULD THINK.

BUT I'M NOT SURPRISED THAT

HE TOTALLY -- JUST LIKE

JESUS DID -- ENVELOPED ME

AND SCOOPED ME UP IN HIS

ARMS AND SAID, LISA,

YOU'RE A NEW PERSON.

YOU ARE A NEW PERSON; I

DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT OLD

PERSON.

WHAT IS REALLY COOL, HE

ENCOURAGES ME TO KEEP

TELLING MY STORY.

HE'S LIKE, YOU'VE GOT TO

SHARE THIS WITH PEOPLE.

PEOPLE HAVE TO KNOW WHAT

GOD HAS DONE.

Wendy: WHEN YOU GAVE

UP YOUR QUEST TO MAKE LISA

FAMOUS AND DECIDED TO MAKE

JESUS FAMILY, HOW DID THAT

IMPACT YOUR CAREER?

IN A GREAT WAY.

I ALWAYS KIND OF NOT

WANTED TO DO THEATER OR

COMMERCIALS OR

PERFORMANCES WHERE IT

WOULD COMPROMISE MY

BELIEFS IN GOD.

WHAT IT DID FOR ME WAS IT

CAUSED ME TO THINK LESS

ABOUT ME ONSET AND MORE

ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE.

SO IT WASN'T ABOUT BEING

ENOUGH FOR THIS DIRECTOR,

BEING ENOUGH FOR THIS

FELLOW ACTOR, OR WILL THEY

CONTINUE TO THINK THAT

THEY'VE MADE A GOOD CHOICE

WHEN THEY SELECTED ME, BUT

HOW CAN I BUILD

RELATIONSHIPS WITH ME?

HOW CAN I SHINE JESUS TO

THEM?

Wendy: AND YOU'RE

GETTING GREAT WORK.

YOU GOT A McDONALD'S

COMMERCIAL.

THAT'S PRIMO O.

>. IT IS PRETTY FUN.

GOD HAS BLESSED IT.

HE KNOWS IF I GIVE THIS TO

LISA, SHE IS GOING TO DO

HER BEST -- AND I'M NOT

PERFECT, BU BUT SHE IS GOING

TO DO HER BEST TO BRING ME

GLORY.

Wendy: WHAT IS YOUR

FAVORITE?

ACTING IN COMMERCIALS OR

THEATER --

I LOVE ALL OF IT.

I HAVE TWO KIDS, SO I LIKE

THE COMMERCIALS AND

INDUSTRIALS THAT DON'T

TAKE ME AWAY FROM HOME FOR

WEEKS AT A TIME.

SO I REALLY LOVE THAT.

I LOVE THE RELATIONSHIPS I

BUILD.

Wendy: I HEARD PAT

ROBERTSON IS GETTING INTO

THE MOVIE BUSINESS, SO YOU

HAVE SOME CONNECTIONS.

I HEARD A LINE ONCE, WE'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE THE LEADING

LADIES IN OUR OWN LIVES,

IT'S NOT A DRESS

REHEARSALS.

THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

YOU WANT TO GET THIS.

IT IS VERY ENCOURAGING,

AND YOU'LL LOVE IT.

LISA, GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH,

WENDY.

IT IS NICE TO MEET YOU.

Wendy: SHARON ASKS,

"ON JUDGMENT DAY, WILL WE

HAVE TO ANSWER FOR SINS

WE'VE ALREADY CONFESSED?"

HEAR WHAT PAT HAS TO SAY

ABOUT THAT AND MUCH MORE,

NEXT.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AND WE HAVE PAT IN THE HOT

SEAT FOR "BRING IT ON."

SHARON SAYS, "ON JUDGMENT

DAY, WILL WE ALSO HAVE TO

ANSWER FOR CONFESSED SINS

OR ARE THEY COVERED BY THE

BLOOD OF JESUS AND

FORGOTTEN?"

Pat: I THINK

DEFINITELY THEY ARE, BUT I

ALSO THINK THAT THE OTHER

SINS YOU'VE COMMITTED -- I

DON'T THINK YOU'RE GOING

TO HAVE A REVIEW OF THEM.

THE BIBLE SAYS, HE WHO

HEARS MY WORD AND BELIEVES

ME WILL HAVE EVERLASTING

LIFE AND WILL NOT HAVE

JUDGMENT.

THE STUFF WE'VE DONE WILL

BE COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF

JESUS, PERIOD.

IT DOESN'T HURT TO CONFESS

THEM ALONG THE WAY AND GET

THEM OUT OF YOUR LIFE.

Wendy: VICTORIA SAYS,

"IN MY CHURCH, I HAVE

NOTICED SOME GOSPEL

AMONGST THE WOMEN,

INCLUDING MY PASTOR'S

WIFE.

DO I NEED TO FIND ANOTHER

CHURCH?

HOW SHOULD I HANDLE THE

SITUATION BECAUSE I'M HURT

BY IT?"

Pat: IT IS AMAZING

THAT WE MAKE A BIG DEAL

ABOUT IMMORAL SEX, WE MAKE

A BIG DEAL OUT OF

ADULTERY, AND YET SLANDER

AND GOSPEL IS EVER PI BIT AS

BAD IN THE BIBLE, AND YET

THAT SEEMS TO BE A SIN

THAT WE ALLOW IN THE

CHURCHES.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

IF YOU'RE IN A BUNCH OF

WOMEN AND THE WHOLE PLACE

IS FILLED WITH GOSPEL AND

HATRED AND BITTERNESS,

YOU'RE BETTER OFF TO GET

OUT.

UNLESS YOU CAN FEEL CALLED

TO BE A MISSIONARY TO

THOSE GROUPS, I'D GO FIND

SOME PLACE MORE

COMPATIBLE.

Wendy: HELEN SAYS,

"I'M 18 YEARS OLD AND I

NEED HELP.

I'VE RECENTLY STARTED

TALKING TO THIS GUY AND

IT'S GREAT, ACCEPT I LET

THINGS GO TOO FAR IN WHAT

WE TALKED ABOUT. I TALKED

SEXUAL WITH HIM.

I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH

SEXUAL THINGS AND WANT TO

STOP TALKING TO HIM, BUT I

DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL

HIM.

I FEEL RUDE JUST BLOCKING

HIM AND MOVING ON."

Pat: LOOK, SEX TALK

IS A COME ON.

AND THIS GUY KNOWS IF HE

CAN GET YOU TALKING SEX,

THE NEXT THING IS HE CAN

GET YOU DOING IT.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE A

PORNOGRAPHY THING.

IT IS LIKE THOSE CALLS

WHERE YOU TALK DIRTY TO

SOME LADY ON THE PHONE AND

PAY $10 AN HOUR OR

WHATEVER IT IS.

YOU OUGHT TO GET OUT OF

THAT RELATIONSHIP.

I MEAN, THIS MAN ISN'T

SERIOUS.

HE IS TRYING TO USE YOU.

YOU'VE BECOME A SEX

OBJECT.

YOU DON'T WANT THAT.

I KNOW IN YOUR OWN LIFE

YOU'VE GOT THESE BE PROBLEMS.

WE'RE ALL SEXUAL

CREATURES.

THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND.

GOD MADE US, AND PART OF

MAKING US WAS THAT WE

WOULD PROCREATE, AND

THAT'S WHAT SEX IS ABOUT.

BUT HE SAID, IF YOU CAN

FIND IT IN MARRIAGE,

THAT'S HOW I WANT IT.

I'LL GIVE YOU A GOOD

RELATIONSHIP, AND A SEXUAL

RELATIONSHIP, BUT IT

SHOULD BE IN MARRIAGE.

IT IS BETTER TO MARRY THAN

TO BURN WITH LUST.

IN YOUR CASE, THE THOUGHT

WOULD BE GETTING MARRIED

RATHER THAN HAVING ALL OF

THIS PROBLEM AND TALKING

DIRTY WITH YOUR BOYFRIEND.

Wendy: SHE SHOULDN'T

FEEL GUILTY THEN ABOUT

BLOCKING HIS PHONE

NUMBER --

Pat: OF COURSE NOT.

THIS MAN -- HIS

INTENTIONS -- SHE'S AN

OBJECT AND HE WANTS TO

MAKE OUT WITH HER.

Wendy: RUN, CHILD.

LANA SAYS, "DEAR PAT, I

LOVE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB" AND I LIKE HOW YOU

ANSWER MANY QUESTIONS

ABOUT THE GIFT OF SPEAKING

IN TONGUES.

I ALWAYS WANTED TO O ASK

IASK IFYOU HAVE THIS GIFT OR NOT?

HOW DOES ONE RECEIVE IT?"

Pat: THE ANSWER IS

YES, I'VE BEEN FILLED WITH

THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND I'VE

BROUGHT MESSAGES IN

TONGUES, BROUGHT PROPHECY,

AND MOVED INTO THE GIFTS

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I REALLY THINK IT IS

PRECIOUS.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, HE WHO

SPEAKS IN THE TONGUE

EDIFIES HIMSELF.

SO YOU BUILD UP YOUR

SPIRIT.

WHEN DID IT HAPPEN?

WHEN MY SON WAS

DESPERATELY ILL, I WAS

PRAYING FOR HIM TO BE

HEALED.

I LIFTED HIM TO THE

PRESENCE OF THE LORD, AND

HE HEALED HIM INSTANTLY,

AND I JUST BEGAN TO

WORSHIP GOD.

Wendy: THAT WAS

GORDON?

Pat: MY OLDEST SON,

TIM.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

2 CORINTHIANS: "NO MATTER

HOW MANY PROMISES GOD HAS

MADE, THEY ARE YES IN

CHRIST."

> TOMORROW, WE SIT DOWN

WITH MUSIC LEGEND TOBY

MACK, AND THAT'S ON

THURSDAY ON "THE 700

CLUB."

SO FOR WENDY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US.

WE'LL HAVE ANOTHER

EXCITING REPORT ABOUT THE

TRUMP VISIT.

HE IS GOING TO BE TALKING

TO SOME OF THE FINANCE

MINISTERS AS HE CONTINUES

HIS VERY INTERESTING

SOJOURN.

AND WE'LL BRING YOU UP TO

DATE WITH OUR GUYS WITH

THE TRUMP PARTLY ON THE

PLANE.

UNTIL THEN, FROM ALL OF

US, GOD BLESS YOU.
