The 700 Club - June 5, 2017

The war that changed the Middle East and forged a friendship half a world away. Plus, a stunt double’s struggle with depression descends to a dangerous level. Read Transcript


COMING UP, THE WAR THAT

CHANGED

THE MIDDLE EAST. AND FORGED

A

FRIENDSHIP HALF A WORLD

AWAY.

I KNEW THIS WOULD HAVE

ENORMOUS

SIGNIFICANT.

PLUS.

THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN TO

PEOPLE LIKE

ME.

PLAYING DEAD.

I REMEMBER LAYING THERE

ON THAT

BED THINKING WHY.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB". *

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN

TO THIS EDITION OF THE "700

CLUB".

WHEN YOU THINK BACK A FEW

YEARS WHEN

WE HAD A PRESIDENT NAMED

GEORGE BUSH.

HE SAID, I WANT YOU TO

REMEMBER ISLAM

AS A PLACE OF PEACE.

I REMEMBER SAYING YOU ARE

NOT

PEACE, IT'S SUBMISSIONS.

EVERYBODY SAID IT WAS A

RELIGION OF

PEACE. AND THEY HAVE DONE

EVERYTHING

KNOWN TO MAN TO JUSTIFY

CALLING THAT

A PEACEFUL RELIGION. WELL,

FINALLY

THE BRITISH ARE BEGINNING TO

WAKE UP

AND BRITISH PRIME MINISTER

IS SAYING

IT'S TIME TO TAKE TOUGH

ACTION TO

STOP WHAT NOW IS CALLED

RADICAL

ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

AFTER THE LATEST BRUTAL

ATTACK IN

LONDON THAT KILLED SEVEN

PEOPLE AND

INJURED DOZENS OF OTHERS.

Terry: ISIS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY

FOR THE TERRORIST ATTACK AND

BRITISH

OFFICIALS HAVE CARRIED OUT A

SWEEP IN

THE LONDON AREA ARRESTING 12

PEOPLE.

THIS WAS THE THIRD TERROR

ATTACK

IN THE UNITED KINGDOM IN THE

LAST

THREE MONTHS. COUNTER

TERRORIST

SOURCES SUGGEST THOSE THAT

PLANNED TO

CARRY OUT THE ATTACK MIGHT

HAVE BEEN

PLANNING IT FOR MONTHS.

IT WAS POSTED ON A

WEBSITE CALLING

ON FOLLOWERS TO USE GUNS,

KNIVES AND

EVEN A TRUCK TO KILL THE

CRUSADERS

DURING THE WEEK OF RAMADAN.

POLICE WERE MAKING ARREST

AND MORE

ANTICIPATED IN THE COMING

DAYS. WE

HAVE HEARD FIRSTHAND

ACCOUNTS OF

THOSE WHO FOUGHT BACK

AGAINST THE

TERRORIST.

THEY WERE THERE AND THEY

SAW A

KNIFE.

COWARDS.

I THROUGH A CHAIR TRYING TO

GET THEM

FROM CHASING ME.

POLICE UNLEASHED 50

ROUNDS KILLING

THE THREE SUSPECTS. PRIME

MINISTER

SAYING ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND

THE

UNITED KINGDOM WILL HAVE TO

TAKE

TOUGHER MEASURES.

WE COULD NOT AND MUST NOT

PRETEND

TO SEE THINGS CONTINUE AS

THEY ARE.

THINGS NEED TO CHANGE.

THAT THERE MAY BE BEEN

THE CHANGES

TO THE BOMBING IN MANCHESTER

CALLING

ISLAMIC EXTREMISM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP --

I WILL DO WHAT IS

NECESSARY FROM

SPREADING THIS THREAT AND

WILL

PROTECT THE SECURITY OF OUR

COUNTRY.

OUR COMMUNITIES, AND OUR

PEOPLE.

IN MANCHESTER REMEMBERING

THE

VICTIMS OF THE ATTACK VOWING

TO CARRY

ON AND JUSTIN BIEBER TELLING

THE

CROWD THAT GOD IS GOOD

AMIDST EVIL.

THEY HAVE 300 PEOPLE ON

THEIR WATCH

LIST BUT NO WAY THEY CAN

WATCH THEM

ALL. THEY BELIEVE MORE

ATTACKS COULD

TAKE PLACE.

Pat: CBN NEWS NATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT DALE HURD IS

WITH US.

DALE, THERE IS TOO MUCH

TOLERANCE FOR

EXTREMISM.

DO YOU THINK THERE WILL BE

CHANGE?

IT'S SKEPTICAL. SHE

TALKED ABOUT

CONTROLLING THE INTERNET.

THAT IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

IN FACT IT'S NOT EVEN

IMMIGRATION.

TERRORIST ARE HOMEGROWN.

IT'S WHAT'S

GOING ON IN THE MOSQUE BUT

WHAT WE

CAN SEE FROM OTHER SCANDALS

LIKE THE

RAPE GANG SCANDAL WHERE

POLICE

REPORTED THE CRIMINAL

ACTIVITY BUT IT

WASN'T ACTED ON BECAUSE OF

POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS.

Pat: IS POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS TOO

EMBEDDED FOR LEADERS TO FREE

THEMSELVES FROM.

IT'S A POWERFUL WEAPON,

BUT THE

MOST POWERFUL WEAPON OF

TODAY IS

BEING CALLED A RACIST.

THEY ARE NOT ON A LEVEL OF A

CONSERVATIVE PARTY OR A

LEVEL PARTY.

SO YOU WON'T WHAT'S GOING TO

STOP

THIS.

WHAT ABOUT THE BRITISH

PEOPLE UPON

THEMSELVES. THIS ATTACK CAME

JUST

DAYS BEFORE THE GENERAL

ELECTION. IS

IT MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN

THE WAY

THEY VOTE.

THIS SHOWS THE

CONSERVATIVES WITH

THE POINT LEAD AND ONE

MEMBER SAID 1

MAN'S TERRORIST IS ANOTHER

MAN'S

FREEDOM FIGHTER.

THE LONG SHOWED THIS

DOMINATING AND

THIS WON'T CONTRACT AND HELP

THAT.

Pat: THERE ARE MEASURES IN

PLACE.

HOW COME THEY KEEP GETTING

CAUGHT BY

THESE THINGS?

THAT'S A REALLY GOOD

QUESTION.

THEY HAVE 20 OFFICERS

FOLLOWING EACH

TERRORIST SUSPECT AND I

DON'T KNOW

WHY THESE ATTACKS KEEP

HAPPENING. AS

I HAVE SAID, THEY KNOW WHEN

THESE

TERRORIST ARE GOING TO THE

BATHROOM.

THEY HAVE MASSIVE

SURVEILLANCE AND IT

CAN ONLY BE THAT SOMEONE AT

A HIGHER

ILLEGAL IN THE BRITISH

GOVERNMENT IS

STOPPING ENFORCEMENT.

YOU REALLY THINK THAT?

THIS WOULD

BE LIKE A PLOT OF SOME KIND?

WELL, THE ONLY OTHER

OPTION IS

THAT THEY HAVE GONE OFF THE

GRID WITH

THEIR PLOTS THAT THEY ARE

NOT USING

ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND THAT

MAY HAVE

ABOUT BE THE CASE HERE.

THEY GET TOGETHER IN A CAR

AND PLAN

THE TERRORIST ATTACK.

MORE COMING IN SOME OTHER

COUNTRIES, WHERE, FRANCE OR

SOMEPLACE

ELSE?

YOU KNOW, YES.

EVERYWHERE. IN

BRITAIN, BECAUSE EVEN AFTER

THIS

ATTACK YOU SEE RESPONSE FROM

THE LEFT

TALKING ABOUT AS THEY ARE

GOING TO

CARRY ON AS USUAL.

BUT MORE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO

HAVE TO

DIE BEFORE SOMETHING IS DONE

BECAUSE

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS SO

IMPORTANT

TO THEM.

IT'S A CORE OF FAITH FOR

THEM.

DALE, BEFORE YOU GET OFF,

LET'S

DEFINE POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS. WHAT

DOES IT MEAN TO YOU?

WELL, IN THE CASE OF

ISLAM, IT'S A

VENERATION OF ISLAM. IF THIS

BARBARIC

RELIGION, THE LEFT VIEWS IS

BETTER

THAN THAT THE WESTERN

NATION. THE

WEST NOW IN BRITAIN AND

EUROPE IT'S A

HOLLOWED OUT TREE.

THERE IS NO VIGOR IN IT.

IT'S AS IF

THEY WANT TO HANDLE THIS

SOCIETY TO

BARBARIANS FROM ASIA.

SO THIS IS REALLY A DEATH

WISH?

YES, EXACTLY.

DALE HURD, THANK YOU.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, YOU

CAN'T KEEP

SOMEONE FROM WANTING TO DIE.

YOU CAN

HELP THEM GET BETTER, BUT IF

THEY

WANT TO DIE, IT'S REALLY

HARD. IF

OTHER PEOPLE IN WESTERN

EUROPE WANT

TO DIE AND FIGURE SOCIETY

HAS COME TO

ITS END AND THEY WANT TO END

IT,

WELL, ISLAM IS CERTAINLY

PROVIDING A

WAY TO DO IT.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE DEPTH

AND

ANALYSIS ON CBNNEWS.COM AND

WHAT THEY

SAY ABOUT ISLAM AND

TERRORISM.

Terry: COMING BACK, A LOOK

AT WHAT

CHANGED THE WORLD 50 YEARS

AGO TODAY.

SOMETHING HAD RESPONDED

AND IT WAS

ENORMOUS. THE LINK WITH

ISRAEL. I

KEPT THAT VOW.

JOIN US AS WE TALK ABOUT

THE

SIX-DAY WAR AND THE NATIONAL

ALLIANCE.

AFTER THIS.

AFTER THIS.

Pat: 50 YEARS AGO TODAY,

THE

HISTORIC SIX-DAY WAR BEGAN

BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND THE ARAB NATIONS.

DURING

THAT BATTLE, ISRAELI FORCES

REUNITED

JERUSALEM FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN

NEARLY 2,000 YEARS. ON THAT

SAME DAY,

CBN WAS ALSO TAKING A MAJOR

STEP

FORWARD. WATCH THIS.

IN JUNE OF 1967, ISRAEL

FOUND ITS

FIGHTING.

THEY FOUGHT WITH ONE

PURPOSE, THE

DESTRUCTION OF THE JEWISH

STATE.

GOD WAS RAISING UP A FRET.

WE STARTED THE

CONSTRUCTION OF OUR

NEW PHASE AND THE CEREMONY

WAS OVER

WHEN ONE OF OUR BOARD

MEMBERS CAME

AND SAID THEY JUST STARTED

WAR IN

ISRAEL.

SOMETHING JUST RESPONDED

WITHIN ME. I

KNEW THIS HAD ENORMOUS

SIGNIFICANCE

THAT WE AT CBN WERE LINKED

WITH

ISRAEL AND THAT THIS HAD TO

DO THE

LAST TIME IT HAD TO DO WITH

THE

FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECY

WITH THE

GENTILE.

THIS BEGAN -- ON I --

YOM KIPPUR.

THIS BROUGHT A MESSAGE OF

HOPE TO A

WORRIED NATION.

THE THREAT WAS TO THE

VERY

EXISTENCE OF THE NEWLY BORN

JEWISH

STATE.

HERE WAS THE GENERAL

ACTUALLY

UNDER MOSHE DYAN.

THE PRIME MINISTER.

HE ASKED AMERICA TO BE

STRONG AND AT

THAT POINT I MADE A VOW THAT

WHATEVER

HAPPENED HOWEVER UNPOPULAR

IT WOULD

BE, THAT WE AND THOSE

ASSOCIATED WITH

US WOULD STAND WITH ISRAEL

OR WE

WOULD BE THE FRIEND OF

ISRAEL

REGARDLESS.

OVER THESE 35 YEARS I HAVE

KEPT THAT

VOW.

3 YEARS LATER, AS A PREVIEW

OF THINGS

TO COME, THE FIRST SATELLITE

CAME AND

THE RELATIONSHIP HAS ONLY

GROWN

STRONGER.

IN 2001, A NEWS BUREAU

BROUGHT OVER

THE HEART OF JERUSALEM TO

BRING

UNDERSTANDING IN THIS TIME

OF EVENTS.

IT'S VITAL FOR CBN NEWS

TO BE HERE

REPORTING ON THE EVENTS

BEFORE THE

RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.

AT PAT ROBERTSON'S 75

BIRTHDAY

CELEBRATION IN 2005,

BENJAMIN

NETANYANU SENT A THANK YOU

FROM

ISRAEL.

WE HAVE NO GREATER FRIEND

IN THE

WORLD THAN PAT ROBERTSON.

IN AUGUST, 2006, PAT

TRAVELED TO

ISRAEL DURING THE WAR TO

DEMONSTRATE

HIS SUPPORT.

I'M HERE TO TELL YOUR

PEOPLE THAT

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS OF

AMERICA ARE

WITH YOU AND PRAYING WITH

YOU.

WE PRAY FOR THE NATION OF

ISRAEL.

AND SHOWED HUMANITARIAN

THROUGH

ISRAEL. THEY HELPED ISRAELIS

IN NEED

INCLUDING SURVIVORS OF THE

HOLOCAUST.

NOW SHOWS THROUGH

DATELINE AROUND

THE WORLD AND BROADCAST

TRANSLATED TO

OTHER LANGUAGES LIKE KOREAN.

IT'S A DOCUMENTARY WITH MORE

SPECIALS

ON THE WAY.

CBN'S TIES TO ISRAEL REMAIN

STRONG

AND STEAD FAST AND WE WILL

BE THERE

TO REPORT THE PROPHETIC

EVENTS THAT

HAILED THE DAY OF THE

MESSIAH RETURN.

THAT GIVES YOU A LITTLE

HISTORIC

PERSPECTIVE.

WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS OF

ISRAEL FOR

MORE THAN 40 YEARS.

THAT RELATIONSHIP IS STILL

STRONG,

AND THIS NEW MOVIE THAT

GORDON HAS

PUT TOGETHER WITH AARON

ZIMMERMAN AND

OTHERS HAS BEEN SO WELL

RECEIVED HERE

IN AMERICA AND IN ISRAEL.

Terry: THAT'S WHAT I

WANTED TO SAY,

NOT JUST HERE, BUT THE

DOCUDRAMA "IN

OUR HANDS, THE BATTLE FOR

FOR

JERUSALEM" HAD A GALA

PREMIER SUNDAY.

WE TAKE A LOOK AT HOW

ISRAELIS

RECEIVED THAT FILM.

THE FILM MARKS THE 1967

FILM.

Gordon: THIS IS THE WHOLE

PROJECT.

THAT AMONG THE NATION, THE

LORD HAS

DONE GREAT THINGS WITH THEM.

IT'S

WITH GREAT JOY I SAY TO YOU

THE LORD

HAS DONE GREAT THINGS FOR

YOU.

THIS FOLLOWS THE LIFE OF

SEVERAL

PARA TROOPERS AS THEY FOUGHT

CRITICAL

BATTLES FOR THE SOVEREIGNTY

FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN 2,000 YEARS.

I WANT TO TELL ALL OF

YOU, THAT IT

DOES A WONDERFUL WORK.

I'M VERY EXCITED WHEN THE

MOMENT

WHEN WE BROKE THROUGH THE

ALLIANCE

GATE.

IF SOMEONE SAYS THAT

WASN'T REALLY

RIGHT.

AND TO GET THE APPROVAL FROM

THE FOUR

OF OUR PARA TROOPERS WAS AN

AMAZING

BLESSING FOR ME.

THE FILM HAS BEEN A BIG

HIT IN

U.S., BUT HOW DID IT PLAY IN

ISRAEL?

I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH

AGGRESSION

OF THE TRUE STORY BEING TOLD

HERE.

IT WAS GREAT TO SEE THE

OLDER

FOOTAGE.

IT GAVE YOU A SENSE OF HOW

THE WORLD

WAS, WHAT A TESTIMONIAL TO

ISRAEL.

WHAT I DIDN'T SEE WHAT IS

WHAT

THEY WENT THROUGH.

THE ACTORS WERE GLAD TO

BE PART OF

THE FILM.

IT WAS GREAT.

IT WAS AMAZING TO FEEL A

PART OF

IT.

SOME ISRAELIS WERE

SURPRISED THAT

CHRISTIANS WOULD MAKE SUCH A

WONDERFUL FILM.

YES, I JUST LOVED THEY

LOVED

ISRAEL. IT'S VERY SURPRISING.

A GOOD SURPRISE.

CHRIS MITCHELL. IN

JERUSALEM.

Terry: WE HAD AN

OVERWHELMING

RESPONSE IN THEATRES THAT

SOLD OUT

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

THAT IS EXTENDING THE FILM

"IN OUR

HANDS, THE BATTLE FOR FOR

JERUSALEM"

FOR ONE MORE NIGHT.

TUESDAY IN SELECT THEATRES.

THIS IS

THE LAST TIME TO SEE THE

DOCUDRAMA ON

THE SIX-DAY WAR ON THE BIG

SCREEN.

JUST GO TO "IN OUR HANDS,

THE BATTLE

FOR FOR JERUSALEM" 1967.COM.

UP NEXT, A WOMAN RELIVES

A DARK

STORY FROM HER PAST.

I REMEMBER LAYING THIS

THINKING,

WHY ME?

SEE HOW THIS YOUNG WOMAN

OVER

COMES HER TRAUMA AND MOVES

ON TO HER

DREAM CAREER IN THE MOVIES.

AFTER THIS.

AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU MAY HAVE SEEN

LAURIE

HARPER IN THE MOVIES, BUT

YOU

WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE HER.

SHE'S A STUNT

DOUBLE FOR SOME OF THE

BIGGEST STARS.

YEARS AGO SHE WAS A BRIGHT

AND BUBBLY

TEENAGER PERFORMING

GYMNASTICS, BUT 1

DAY AFTER A PARTY SHE CAME

OUT OF THE

DOOR A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

PERSON.

STUNT DOUBLE LAURIE

HARPER HAS

PERFORMED THOUSANDS OF FALLS

IN HER

CAREER. SHE HAS TO HAVE

COURAGE,

STRENGTH AND

SELF-CONFIDENCE.

SOMETHING SHE HAD PLENTY OF

GROWING

UP AS A TEENAGER IN NORTH

CAROLINA.

I GREW UP LEARNING SO

MANY SKILLS.

I FELT CONFIDENT.

THAT ALL CHANGED WHEN

LAURIE WAS

15.

SHE WAS AT A PARTY WHEN A

BOY ASKED

HER TO COME UPSTAIRS TO TALK

AND

THAT'S WHEN HE PUT A PILLOW

OVER HER

HEAD AND RAPED HER. NOBODY

COULD HEAR

HER SCREAM.

I THOUGHT WHY IS THIS

HAPPENING?

WHY ME? THESE ARE THINGS

THAT DON'T

HAPPEN TO PEOPLE LIKE ME.

BUT I HATED NOT KNOWING WHEN

I WAS

WALKING IN THE ROOM WHAT WAS

GOING TO

HAPPEN TO ME. I FELT

HELPLESS.

LAURIE FELT ASHAMED TO

TELL ANYONE.

I REMEMBER BEING SO SAD.

SO SAD ABOUT IT AND SO

DEPRESSED

ABOUT IT THAT I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO

DO ABOUT IT, BUT I DIDN'T

WANT TO

TALK TO PEOPLE. I DIDN'T

WANT TO TALK

TO ANYBODY ABOUT IT.

WITH A GROWING SENSE OF

SHAME, SHE

FELT DEEPER INTO DEPRESSION.

DEPRESSION TO ME FELT

LIKE WHY

WAKE UP WHEN YOU CAN JUST BE

DEAD.

IT FELT LIKE, WHY GET OUT OF

THIS BED

WHEN YOU ARE HAPPIER WHEN

YOU ARE

ASLEEP. THE JOY COMES OUT

AND THERE

WAS JUST NO HOPE.

THEN SHE STARTED CUTTING

HERSELF.

I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR

AND I WOULD

TAKE THUMB TACS AND I WOULD

SCRATCH

MY CHEEK UNTIL IT BLED.

I GUESS I HATED MYSELF SO

MUCH THAT

IF I WASN'T GOING TO DIE, I

WAS GOING

TO SUFFER.

A FEW MONTHS LATER LAURIE

CONFIDED

IN HER FRIEND AND THAT TRUST

WAS

QUICKLY BROKEN.

NEXT THING YOU KNOW,

PEOPLE ONLINE

STARTED MESSAGING ME ABOUT

THE RAPE

AND THAT TOOK ME TO THE VERY

END OF

MY ROPE.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT MY

BEST

FRIEND THAT I TRUSTED WOULD

TELL

SOMEBODY.

ON IMPULSE, LAURIE DOWNED

HANDFUL

OF PILLS.

AFTER I TOOK THOSE PILLS,

ALL OF A

SUDDEN THAT BOLDNESS OF I

WANT TO DIE

BECAME, DO I WITHIN -- WANT

TO DIE?

I WENT DOWNSTAIRS AND CALLED

MY MOM.

LAURIE'S MOM KNEW SHE

WASN'T IN

ANY DANGER BUT SHE KNEW SHE

NEEDED

HELP AND TOOK HER TO A

PSYCHIATRIST

AND PUT HER ON ADD

MEDICATION AND FOR

DEPRESSION.

JUST BECAUSE I WENT ON

MEDICATION

DIDN'T GIVE ME JOY IN MY

LIFE.

I WENT ON LIVING MY LIFE,

BUT I

DIDN'T FEEL JOY INSIDE, I

DIDN'T FEEL

GREAT.

I JUST FELT I WAS ON AUTO

PILOT.

1 DAY, SHE INVITED HER TO

A

CHRISTIAN YOUTH GATHERING

CALLED

YOUNG LIFE.

SHE KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT ABOUT HER.

I THOUGHT, THIS GIRL, I

HAVE NEVER

SEEN A JOY IN SOMEONE'S LIFE.

I SAID, THAT GIRL HAS GOT

SOMETHING

SPECIAL.

WHATEVER IT IS, I WANT IT.

LAURIE WENT TO THE

MEETING AND

DISCOVERED WHAT HER NEW

FRIEND HAD,

FAITH IN JESUS.

WHEN I STARTED TO LEARN

ABOUT WHO

JESUS IS, I STARTED TO

PERCEIVE JOY

IN MY HEART AGAIN.

NO MATTER WHAT IT WAS THAT

WAS DARK

THAT HAD HAPPENED IN MY

LIFE, HE

LOVED ME ANYWAY.

I SAID, YES, LORD, COME INTO

MY LIFE.

I AM READY.

I'M IN DARKEST PLACE I HAVE

EVER BEEN

AND BRING IT ON.

AFTER THIS, THE DEPRESSION

WENT AWAY.

INSTEAD OF GIVING INTO

DEPRESSION,

SHE LEARNED TO DEPEND ON GOD

FOR

STRENGTH AND JOY.

GOD'S PRESENCE GIVES ME

THE

CONFIDENCE KNOWING THAT HE'S

GOING TO

BE THERE AND HE'S GOING TO

PROTECT

ME.

LAURIE SAYS IT WAS GOD

WHO LED HER

TO HER DREAM CAREER AND HER

HUSBAND.

HE HAPPENS TO BE A STUNT MAN.

SHE SAYS WHEN SHE'S GOING

THROUGH

LIFE'S TRIALS, SHE'LL FIND

JOY.

NOW I'M HOPEFUL TO THE

FUTURE.

I KNOW THAT HE HAS PLANS FOR

MY LIFE.

EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED.

Pat: THE PLANS THAT I HAVE

FOR YOU,

THE PLANS FOR A FUTURE AND A

HOPE.

SOME OF YOU WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM SAY

THERE IS NO HOPE, I HAVE NO

HOPE.

HOPE IS DEAD.

GOD SAYS, NO, NO, I HAVE GOT

A FUTURE

FOR YOU AND A HOPE.

THERE IS SOMETHING WONDERFUL

DOWN THE

ROAD, THERE IS SOMETHING

WONDERFUL

RIGHT NOW IN THIS LIFE AND

THAT

SOMETHING WONDERFUL STARTS

WITH JESUS

HIMSELF. HE IS THE FUTURE

AND HE IS

THE HOPE, BUT BEYOND HIM

THERE IS A

LIFE ETERNAL JOY OF JOY EVER

LASTING

AND FULL OF JOY.

IF YOU WANT THAT, YOU MAYBE

DEPRESSED, YOU MAYBE CUTTING

YOURSELF, YOU MAYBE

MISERABLE AND YOU

WANT TO DIE.

YOU MAY WANT THAT.

START THAT.

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

PRAY THESE WORDS. SAY,

JESUS, I KNOW

YOU DIED FOR ME.

LORD, I KNOW YOU ROSE AGAIN.

I KNOW THAT YOU ARE COMING

BACK TO

EARTH AGAIN.

RIGHT NOW, LORD, I WANT YOU

IN MY

LIFE.

SO I OPEN MY HEART TO YOU

AND ASK YOU

TO COME IN.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE HEARD

MY

PRAYERS. I RECEIVE YOU AND

FROM THIS

MOMENT ON, YOU ARE MY LORD

AND I AM

YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED

ANOINTING COME

WELL, TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

WHAT CBN IS

DO -- DOING AROUND THE

WORLD, LOG ON

TO CBN.COM. PAT AND TERRY

RIGHT BACK AFTER THIS.

Terry: ON FATHER'S DAY IN

2007,

MARK WOKE UP IN A HOSPITAL

BED AFTER

SPENDING NEARLY A MONTH IN A

MEDICALLY INDUCED COMA.

HE HAD A HOLE IN HIS HEAD

FROM A LIFE

SAVING SURGERY AND WONDERED

IF HE

WOULD EVER WALK AGAIN.

MARK MOORE IS A

PHILANTHROPIST.

HE HAD A STROKE AT 46.

HE SAYS IT HELPED HIM BECOME

THE

HUMANTARIAN HE IS TODAY.

YOU WERE BORN IN A FAMILY

OF 10

AND SECOND TO THE YOUNGEST.

THAT'S CORRECT.

YOUR FAMILY LIVED IN A

TWO BEDROOM

HOME OUT OF THE KIND OF

DAY-TO-DAY

LIVING THAT YOU ALL HAD AT

THAT

POINT, YOU DEVELOPED AN

AMAZING

WORSHIP . YOU WERE GOING TO

GET THE

JOB DONE AND GET IT DONE

RIGHT.

THAT HELPED YOU TO BECOME

HIGHLY

SUCCESSFUL ACADEMICALLY AND

ALSO IN

BUSINESS. WHERE WERE YOU IN

THE

BUSINESS LIFE?

IT WAS AT THE HIGHEST

POINT IN MY

BUSINESS CAREER.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL

OPPORTUNITY FOR ME

TO RECEIVE GOD'S WORD.

YOU WERE 46 YEARS OLD AND

IN GREAT

SHAPE.

WHEN THE WHOLE THING STARTED

TO

UNRAVEL, YOU WERE AT YOUR

SONS

ATHLETIC EVENTS. YOU DIDN'T

SEE THIS

COMING.

YOU ARE RIGHT.

I WAS HEALTHY, I DON'T

DRINK, I DON'T

SMOKE. IT TOOK ME BY

SURPRISE. I

COULDN'T BELIEVE I WAS

HAVING A

STROKE AT AGE 46.

WHEN YOU LOOKED BACK,

THERE WERE

SOME SIGNS ALONG THE WAY

THAT

SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT.

YOU WOULD EXPERIENCE

HEADACHES THAT

WOULD COME AND GO?

YES.

I STARTED TO EXPERIENCE

MIGRAINE

HEADACHES AND THE DOCTOR WAS

TRYING

TO FIGURE OUT WHAT CAUSED

THOSE

MIGRAINES. WHAT HAPPENED IS

I

DEVELOPED A BLOOD DEFICIENCY

THAT

CAUSED THE CLOTS THAT CAUSED

MY TWO

STROKES.

HERE YOU GO WITH THESE

STROKES.

IT MUST HAVE BEEN SO

DIFFICULT FOR

YOUR SON WHO IS BEFORE YOU

WHO SEE'S

DAD AND HOW THE WHOLE THING

UNFOLDED

DRAMATICALLY AND YOU WOKE UP

IN THE

HOSPITAL AND IT WAS ALMOST

FATHER'S

DAY BUT THEN IT WAS MOTHER'S

DAY.

EXACTLY.

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN YOU

REALIZE IT

WAS GONE?

EXACTLY. MY DOCTOR

THOUGHT I HAD

HAD A MINI STROKE AND THE

NEXT THING

I REALIZED I WOKE UP ONE

MORNING AND

THE EARLY MORNING NEWSCAST

IT WAS

4:00 A.M. AND THEN THEY SAID

IT WAS

FATHER'S DAY.

WHEN MY WIFE CAME TO THE

HOSPITAL AND

TOLD ME, I SAID WHAT

HAPPENED AND SHE

SAID YOU HAD TWO STROKES AND

NOW YOU

HAVE A LONG RECOVERY BEFORE

YOU. I

WAS DEVASTATED AND SHOCKED

AND DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT TO DO.

FORTUNATELY, I REMEMBER WHAT

MY

MOTHER TOLD ME.

THAT FIRST CORINTHIANS 10

THAT GOD

ONLY GIVES YOU WHAT YOU CAN

HANDLE.

THAT WAS A POINT OF

SURRENDER FOR

YOU WHEN THOSE WORDS CAME

BACK TO YOU

BECAUSE, I MEAN, YOU AS

EVERYONE AS

STRUGGLING WITH TUBES DOWN

YOUR

THROAT, YOU HAVE A FEEDING

TUBE AND

YOU ARE ALL WIRED UP AND YOU

DON'T

KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU.

YOU ARE VERY SUCCESSFUL AND

VERY TYPE

A AND USED TO GETTING OUT

THERE.

DID YOU FEEL ANGRY?

YES, IN THE MEDICAL

PROFESSION

THEY TALK ABOUT A RANGE OF

MOTION AND

THE ANGER AND DENIAL. I WENT

THROUGH

ALL OF THOSE. WHEN I WASN'T

ANGRY, I

WAS IN DENIAL, WHEN I WASN'T

IN

DENIAL, I WAS SCARED AND

ANGRY. I

WENT BACK AND FORTH. THE

REAL KEY IN

THE MEDICAL PROFESSION THEY

WANT YOU

TO GET A SENSE OF ACCEPTANCE

AND HOPE

AND THAT WAS SURRENDERING

AND MY

FAITH.

HOW DID YOU COME UPON

THAT?

THE BEST WAY IS TO TELL

YOU THIS

STORY, THIS JOURNEY. AS I

WAS GOING

THROUGH THE 2 MONTHS OF

REHABILITATION AND AFTER

BRAIN

SURGERY. AS MY WIFE WAS

DRIVING ME

HOPE, I WAS LAMENTING THE

TYPE OF

PROGRESS AND THIS TYPE OF

PERSONALITY. WHEN I WAS ON A

WHEELCHAIR MONDAY AND WHEN

TUESDAY

CAME AROUND I WAS IN THIS

WHEELCHAIR

AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY

I WAS

STILL IN THIS WHEELCHAIR AND

I TOLD

MY WIFE THIS ISN'T WORKING.

I NEED TO

CHANGE OUT MY PHYSICAL

THERAPIST AND

MY WIFE LOOKED AT ME AND

SAID, MARK,

HOW DO YOU KNOW GOD DIDN'T

ALLOW YOU

TO HAVE THESE TWO STROKES SO

YOU CAN

SHOW THEY CAN YOU CAN

RECOVER. THAT

WAS THE KEY TO SURRENDERING.

I

REALIZED I NEEDED TO

SURRENDER AND

REALLY GIVE UP CONTROL.

THAT'S WHAT

SURRENDER IS ABOUT GIVING

CONTROL.

TALK ABOUT WHAT YOUR

CHALLENGES

WERE LIKE. YOU DRESS GREAT,

YOU WALK

OUT HERE AND TALK AND SHARE

YOUR

STORY.

BUT RIGHT AFTER YOU CAME OUT

OF THAT

INDUCED COMA, YOU HAD SOME

TROUBLES.

YOU COULDN'T EVEN TIE YOUR

SHOES.

YOU ARE RIGHT.

I LOST THAT SIDE OF MY BODY.

I

COULDN'T TIE MY SHOES. I

COULDN'T

REMEMBER YOUR NAME. TAKING A

SHOWER

WAS A CHALLENGE, DRIVING WAS

A

CHALLENGE, AND TODAY I CAN

DO ALL OF

THOSE THINGS WITH GOD'S

GRACE.

YOU CALL THE BOOK "THE

STROKE OF

FAITH".

WHAT DID GOD TEACH YOU?

MY STRENGTH IS THROUGH MY

JOURNEY.

YOU NEED TO TRUST IN GOD.

GOD HAS

TAUGHT ME A LOT.

WHEN I WAS IN THE BUSINESS,

I WASN'T

LENGTH. -- LISTENING.

AS I WENT THROUGH THIS

PROCESS, HE

TAUGHT ME TO LISTEN AND

THERE WERE

MANY CHALLENGES AND I WANTED

TO QUIT.

HE SAID, DON'T QUIT. WHETHER

IT WAS A

GOSPEL SONG OR MY WIFE IN

THE CAR OR

GOING TO CHURCH.

I ATTENDED THE CHURCH IN

VIRGINIA. I

WAS GOING TO CHURCH ONE

SUNDAY AND HE

SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT,

SOMETIMES GOD

GIVES US STONES IN A

DIFFERENT

DIRECTION. THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED IN MY

CASE IN 2007.

THIS LED ME TO A CHANGE IN

MY LIFE.

I HAVE NEVER MET YOUR

WIFE, BUT

SHE'S AN AMAZING WOMAN. TALK

ABOUT A

HEALTH MATE.

SHE STICKED WITH YOU THROUGH

THICK

AND THIN.

YES, MY FAMILY, THEY WERE

WONDERFUL DURING THIS

PROCESS. MY

WIFE TREATED MY STROKE AS

OUR STROKE.

IT WASN'T MY HUSBAND'S

STROKE, BUT

OUR STROKE. TERRY, TO YOUR

POINT,

WITH MY WONDERFUL WIFE AND

IN THOSE 6

WEEKS IN THE HOSPITAL, SHE

SLEPT IN

THE CHAIR TO MAKE SURE I WAS

OKAY FOR

6 WEEKS AND WHEN I WENT TO

REHAB, SHE

WAS IN EVERY SESSION.

SHE DIDN'T SAY A WORD AS I

STRUGGLED

TO TIE MY SHOES AND WALK.

YOU ARE NO LONGER IN THE

CORPORATE

WORLD PER SAY, BUT YOU AND

YOUR WIFE

ARE DOING SOMETHING TO --

TOGETHER.

YES, I LEARNED THAT THE

GOOD LORD

ALLOWED ME TO WORK IN THE

CORPORATE

WORLD AND I'M VERY GRATEFUL

FOR THAT.

IF HE'S GOING TO ALLOW ME

TO LIVE

FOR ANOTHER 30 YEARS, I'M

GRATEFUL

FOR THAT.

BUT I'M NOW RETIRED FROM THE

CORPORATE WORLD AND NOW WE

ARE NOW

TRYING TO HELP OTHERS ALONG

THE WAY

TOO.

YOU ARE DOING IT ALL

RIGHT.

AND INSPIRATION TO OTHERS.

MARK

MORRIS BOOK IS CALLED "A

STROKE OF

FAITH".

IT'S AVAILABLE WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE

SOLD. WE HAVE AN INTERVIEW.

GO TO FACEBOOK.COM/CBN.

IT'S A GREAT STORY.

WHETHER IT'S A STORY OF

HARDSHIP. GOD

USES IT ALL.

COMING UP, WE ARE GOING TO

DISCUSS

OUR BRING IT ON QUESTIONS.

STAY TUNED.

PAT WILL ANSWER AND MORE

AFTER THIS.

AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU ARE WATCHING THE

"700

CLUB".

WE ARE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

DANIELLE CRISP WAS A SINGLE

MOM. SHE

WAS DOWN TO HER LAST $14.

WHEN SHE

MADE AN INVESTMENT AND GOT

AN

IMMEDIATE RETURN THE VERY

NEXT DAY.

A FEW SHORT YEARS AGO

DANIELLE

CRISP LOST HER JOB AS A

HAIRSTYLIST

AND STRUGGLING TO GET BY.

SHE

REGULARLY VISITED FOOD

PANTRIES.

I WOULD GO TO CHURCH TO

PUT FOOD

ON THE TABLE. IT WAS

HORRIBLE.

DANIELLE CAME ACROSS THE

"700

CLUB".

IT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION

AND I SAT

DOWN AND STARTED WATCHING

AND REALLY

STARTED TAKING IT IN.

THEN GORDON PRAYED.

FOR THOSE WATCHING, BLESS

THEM,

ENCOURAGE THEM.

I JUST FELT GOD'S

PRESENCE.

I FELT LIKE HE SAID, YOU CAN

START AT

$20 A MONTH. I HAD $40 TO MY

NAME.

I WAS LIKE, OKAY, GOD, YOU

KNOW I

HAVE $40.

I NEED THIS AND I NEED THAT,

BUT IF

YOU ARE REAL, PLEASE LET ME

KNOW.

SHE SENT A CHECK FOR $20

TO CBN.

THE NEXT DAY A FRIEND

STOPPED BY AND

ASKED DANIELLE FOR A HAIRCUT

AND PAID

HER $20.

I THOUGHT, WOW, GOD IS

ANSWERING

MY PRAYER AND MADE ME THINK.

SHE REALIZED AND SHE

THANKED GOD

FOR ALL OF HER PRAYERS.

THEN I GOT A BETTER

PAYING JOB AND

I GAVE MORE AND EVERY TIME I

GAVE

MORE, I GOT BLESSED MORE.

TODAY DANIELLE TEACHES IN

A

PRESCHOOL CLASS AT CHURCH

AND MOVED

INTO A NEW HOME WITH HER BOY.

GOD MADE THAT AVAILABLE.

YOU CAN'T OUT GIVE GOD.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAID WHEN

GOD WAS

SPEAKING TO MOSES, WHAT'S IN

YOUR

HAND, WHAT'S IN YOUR HAND

AND THEN

YOU WILL HAVE $20.

OKAY.

IT WENT TO HELP FEED THE

POOR AND THE

HUNGRY AND SO FORTH.

IT'S GREAT.

Terry: IT REALLY IS GREAT.

SHE HAD SCISSORS IN HER HAND.

BOTH, AND SHE USED BOTH

WISELY.

Pat: SHE DID.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WATCHING WE

HAVE

SOMETHING CALLED MIRACLES.

PEOPLE

HAVE SPOKEN VERY HIGHLY

ABOUT IT.

THIS IS A GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU JOIN

"700 CLUB".

YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

WITH JUST

$0.65 A DAY. IT'S JUST $20 A

MONTH.

Terry: THIS IS SO

INSPIRING TO HEAR

PEOPLE'S COMMENTS ON THIS.

MARIA

LIVES IN EL PASO, TEXAS, SHE

SAYS I

HAVE ENJOYED THIS VERY MUCH.

NOW I

WOULD JUST KEEP ON ASKING

AND PRAYING.

ARE YOU READY FOR BRING IT

ON?

LET'S DO IT.

SHE SAYS, WHEN WE DIE

WILL WE MEET

OUR LOVED ONES.

I HAD TWO MISCARRIAGES AND

NEVER SAW

MY BABIES. WILL THEY STILL

BE BABIES

OR GROWN.

ALSO, WHEN WE DIE AND GO TO

HEAVEN,

WILL WE COME BACK AS

EVERYBODY AT THE

SAME TIME.

JESUS SAYS, YOU WILL BE

WITH ME IN

PARADISE. THE APOSTLE PAUL

SAYS,

WHETHER TO BE PART OR REMAIN

THERE IS

NO IN BETWEEN. WHAT WE'LL

LOOK LIKE.

I THINK THE PREVAILING

THOUGHT IS WE

DON'T KNOW THAT SOMEHOW

THOSE TINY

BABIES WILL GO UP TO 30 AND

THOSE 85

WILL GO DOWN TO 30.

I LIKE THAT.

THAT WORKS FOR ME.

BUT THAT'S THE THOUGHT.

BUT WE ARE

SPIRITUAL BEINGS AND WE'LL

HAVE

SPIRITUAL BODIES AND WE'LL

BE SO

GLORIOUS THAT THE QUESTION

OF HOW WE

LOOK NOW WILL REALLY BE

INSIGNIFICANT. THE THING IS

WE'LL BE

REFLECTING THE GLORY OF GOD.

THIS IS BOB WHO SAYS I DO

NOT

UNDERSTAND IN THE BOOK OF

ACTS THAT

SAID SEVERAL TIMES THAT THE

ELITEST

BROKE BREAD.

IS THAT AN ACT OF COMMUNION.

THEY MET TOGETHER AND HAD

A

COMMUNAL MEAL AND DID THEIR

THING.

IT'S NOT COMMUNION EVERYDAY,

I DON'T

THINK. ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS ANNA WHO SAYS,

PAT, MY SON

IS ALMOST 32 MONTHS OLD.

DOCTORS SAY

HE HAS COUNTERPLASIA. I HAD

A DREAM

AND THE LORD TOUCHED MY HEAD

AND IN

MY HEART I FEEL HE IS HEALED.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OF

THAT

DREAM. THIS IS A SKELETAL

DISORDER

THAT RESULTS IN DWARFISM.

YOU CAN HOLD ON TO THOSE

PROMISES.

HOLD ON.

THIS IS JEFF, HE SAID I

HAVE READ

THE KORAN AND IT CALLS FOR

THE DEATH

OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT READ

THE KORAN.

DO YOU KNOW IF THERE IS A

CHURCH

TEACHING THE PEOPLE ON THE

KORAN?

WE ARE, IT'S CALLED ISLAM.

IT HAS SIGNIFICANT VERSUS IN

THE

KORAN.

I THINK YOU WILL FIND IT

VERY VERY

HELPFUL. I WILL TELL YOU,

THERE IS SO

MUCH MISUNDERSTANDING.

I WANT TO SAY THIS ABOUT

ISLAM.

IT ISN'T MERELY A RELIGION,

IT IS A

WORLD VIEW, A WORLD SYSTEM

HAVING TO

DO WITH GOVERNMENT POLITICAL

SHARIA

LAW, LIFESTYLE, EVERYTHING.

IT IS ENCOMPASSING A

PERSON'S LIFE

AND IT IS NOT JUST "A

RELIGION"

INASMUCH AS COMMUNISM WAS A

POLITICAL

BUT A RELIGION.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THIS POWER

MINUTE.

"WHOEVER CALLS ON THE NAME

OF THE

LORD SHALL BE SAVED" (JOEL

2:32,

NKJV). WELL, FROM TERRY AND

ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU

FOR BEING WITH US. WE'LL SEE

YOU AT

THE SAME TOMORROW. BYE, BYE.
