FAKE.

THE LORD IS GETTING

READY TO DO SOMETHING BIG.

SCRIPTURE WAS ALIVE, MY

FAITH WAS RENEWED.

CAMPUS TO 240 COUNTRIES

SPREADING.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CONGRESSMAN STEVE SCALISE

IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION

IN A WASHINGTON HOSPITAL.

HE IS GOING TO NEED MORE

SURGERIES AFTER THE

SHOOTING ATTACK ON THE

REPUBLICAN BASEBALL TEAM

YESTERDAY MORNING.

Terry: WELL, THE NEW

LAW ENFORCEMENT -- NOW LAW

ENFORCEMENT IS TRYING TO

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE

MAN WHO WENT AFTER THE

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS.

ERIC GONZALES BRINGS US

THIS LOOK AT THE SHOOTING

ASSAULT AND THE HEROS WHO

SAVED LIVES.

Reporter: NOAH NATHAN

WAS WALKING HIS DOG RIGHT

NEXT TO THE PRACTICE WHEN

SHOTS RANG OUT ON

WEDNESDAY MORNING.

I THOUGHT IT WAS

FIREWORKS.

AND THEN I HEARD ANOTHER

ONE, AND THEN I THOUGHT,

THIS ISN'T FIREWORKS, AND

I SAW SOME OF THE PLAYERS

SCURRING AROUND.

Reporter: NATHAN HID

BEHIND A TRASH CAN.

> YOU ACTUALLY HAD SHOTS

COME NEAR YOU?

YEAH.

THEY WERE HITTING OFF THE

GRAVEL.

YOU COULD HEAR THEM

HITTING THE FENCE.

Reporter: AND WHAT

DID YOU DO THEN?

I WAS TRYING TO GET AS

FLAT AS I COULD.

Reporter: IN THE END,

SCALISE WAS STRUCK IN THE

HIP.

AND MATT MIKA WAS SHOT IN

THE CHEST, AND STAFFER

ZACK BARTH ALSO WAS HIT,

AND CRYSTAL GRINER WAS

ALSO STRUCK DURING THE GUN

BATTLE.

REPRESENTATIVES AT THE

BALLPARK SAID THEY ARE

THANKFUL TO BE ALIVE.

I SAW THE GUNMAN COME

AROUND THE BACK STOP, AND

HE HAD A CLEAR LINE OF

FIRE INTO THE DUGOUT.

I ONLY SAW HIM FOR A

SECOND OR TWO, LONG ENOUGH

FOR ME TO RECOGNIZE IF I

COULD SEE HIM, HE COULD

SEE ME.

Reporter: THE

SHOOTER, 66-YEAR-OLD JAMES

HODGKINSON DIED AFTER HE

WAS SHOT IN THE CHEST.

HE WAS IN TROUBLE WITH THE

LAW BEFORE.

POLICE RECEIVED A PHONE

CALL ABOUT HIM AFTER

GUNFIRE WAS REPORTED NEAR

HIS BELLEVILLE HOME.

THE 66-YEAR-OLD WAS NOT

WORKING AND HAD BEEN

LIVING OUT OF HIS CAR

SINCE MARCH OF THIS YEAR

IN THE ALEXANDRIA AREA.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO

HAVE PRESENCE AS WE

PROCESS A SCENE HERE IN

ALEXANDRIA, AND F.B.I.

AGENTS ARE SEARCHING THE

SHOOTER'S HOME.

Reporter: AFTER THE

SHOOTING, LOCAL PASTORS

SHOWED UP QUICKLY TO

PROVIDE PRAYER AND

SUPPORT.

THE VIOLENCE SHOULD

NEVER BE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

BOTH U.S. CAPITOL AND THE

BRASS PRAISED POLICE, AS

WELL AS THE OFFICERS

RESPONDING TO THE SCENE.

I'M VERY PROUD OF THE

OFFICERS, AND THE OFFICERS

FROM THE CAPITOL POLICE,

WHO STOOD THEIR GROUND AND

DID THEIR JOB.

Reporter: THEY DID

THEIR JOB, WHICH SAVED THE

LIVES OF MANY AT AND

AROUND THE BALLPARK.

GORDON?

Gordon: YES, THEY

DID.

IF THEY HADN'T BEEN THERE,

YOU WONDER ABOUT THE

CARNAGE THAT WOULD HAVE

RESULTED.

ERIC, THE F.B.I. SAID THE

SHOOTER STAYED IN

ALEXANDRIA, AND THEY WANT

TO SPEAK WITH PEOPLE WHO

HAD ENCOUNTERS WITH HIM.

WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING FOR?

THE MAIN THING RIGHT NOW

IS THEY WANT TO FIGURE OUT

MOTIVE.

ONE OF MY COLLEAGUES SAID

SHE ACTUALLY MET THE

GUNMAN AT THE LOCAL YMCA.

HE WAS KNOWN AS THE MAN

WITH THE COMPUTER.

HE WOULD OFTEN SHOWER

THERE, AND HE BASICALLY --

HE DIDN'T SEEM DEPRESSED,

AND HE WAS VERY

WELL-SPOKEN.

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID.

Gordon: WELL, IT

CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE WE'RE

GOING TO SEE MORE

SECURITY.

THESE ARE, AFTER ALL,

PUBLIC SERVANTS, AND THEY

HAVE TO BE AT PUBLIC

EVENTS.

ARE WE GOING TO SEE THAT?

ARE WE GOING TO SEE NOW

SECURITY WITH EVERY MEMBER

OF CONGRESS?

Reporter: WELL, YOU

KNOW, I DID SPEAK WITH A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON

CAPITOL HILL, A NUMBER OF

SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN,

AND THEY SAID NO.

THEY DON'T WANT IT.

THE PUBLIC NEEDS TO BE

ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO

THEM.

THAT SENDS OUT A WRONG

MESSAGE, A MESSAGE THAT

THESE TYPES OF CRIMINAL

ACTS ARE IN FACT WINNING,

AND THEY DON'T WANT THAT.

Gordon: ERIC, THANK

YOU.

> DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS CAME TOGETHER

IN CONGRESS AFTER

YESTERDAY'S SHOOTING

ATTACK, AND HOUSE SPEAKER

PAUL RYAN MADE IT CLEAR

THAT BOTH PARTIES WERE

STANDING UNITED.

AN ATTACK ON ONE OF US

IS AN ATTACK ON ALL OF US.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: PARTISAN

POLITICS PAUSED FOR A DAY

AS CAPITOL HILL UNITED IN

PRAYER FOR THOSE INJURED

IN WEDNESDAY'S ATTACK.

WE WERE SITTING DUCKS.

I MEAN, WE HAD NOTHING TO

FIGHT BACK WITH BUT BATS.

Reporter: CONGRESSMAN

ROGER WILLIAMS TOLD US OF

EFFORTS TO HELP HIS

WOUNDED AIDE, ZACK BARTH,

INCLUDING JEFF FLAKE TYING

A TOURNIQUET AROUND HIS

LEG.

ALL THE TIME HE WAS

BLEEDING AND WE WERE UNDER

FIRE, HE WAS TEXTING,

TEXTING TO LET PEOPLE KNOW

WE WERE UNDER FIRE.

Reporter: SENATOR

RAND PAUL TOLD CBN NEWS HE

FELT HELPLESS WATCHING

REPRESENTATIVE SCALISE GO

DOWN AS THE GUNFIRE

CONTINUED.

PEOPLE WERE NEARLY

KILLED BECAUSE OF SOMEONE

WHO GOT CARRIED AWAY WITH

POLITICIAN.

Reporter: HE SAID

SCALISE NOT HAD HIS

SECURITY DETAIL WITH HIM,

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A

MASSACRE.

TRUE HEROS, A MAN AND A

WOMAN, THEY CONFRONTED THE

ATTACKER AND RETURNED

FIRE.

BOTH ARE WOUNDED, BOTH IN

THE HOSPITAL, AND THEY

PROBABLY SAVED THE LIVES

OF MANY PEOPLE.

Reporter: THE

DEMOCRATIC BASEBALL TEAM

PRACTICING NEARBY STOPPED

AND PRAYED IN THE DUGOUT

UPON HEARING THE NEWS.

THAT TYPE OF EMOTION SWEPT

CAPITOL HILL AS OTHER

LAWMAKERS LEARNED OF THE

SHOOTING.

SENATOR LANGFORD TOLD CBN

HOW HE SAW VARIOUS

STAFFERS GATHERED IN

PRAYER, AND HE ENDED HIS

FLOOR SPEECH PRAYING FOR

THOSE INJURED AND THANKING

GOD FOR HIS PROTECTION.

HE SAYS COLLEAGUES ARE NOW

TALKING ABOUT THE RISE IN

DEATH THREATS TO THE

LAWMAKERS.

MANY OF MY PERSONAL

COLLEAGUES HAVE FACED

DEATH THREATS TO THEM AND

THEIR FAMILY, AND WE SEE

WHAT THAT REALLY LOOKS

LIKE WHEN IT GETS CARRIED

OUT FROM AN INDIVIDUAL WHO

MOVES FROM MAKING THREATS

TO ACTUALLY CARRYING THAT

OUT.

Reporter: EARLIER,

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED FOR

UNITY AS HE SPOKE TO THE

NATION ABOUT THE SHOOTING.

President Trump:

AMERICA IS PRAYING FOR ALL

OF THE VICTIMS OF THIS

TERRIBLE SHOOTING.

Reporter: IN THE

EVENING, HE LEFT THE WHITE

HOUSE TO VISIT SCALISE AND

THE WOUNDED OFFICERS.

> DESPITE THE SHOOTINGS,

THE CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL

GAME WILL STILL GO ON AS

SCHEDULED.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Gordon: WELL, WITH US

NOW FROM CAPITOL HILL IS

OUR CBN NEWS POLITICAL

CORRESPONDENT DAVID BRODY.

AND, DAVID, THERE IS A LOT

OF TALK THAT THE POISONED

POLITICAL CLIMATE THERE IS

AT LEAST PARTLY POSSIBLE

RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS

ATTACK.

DO YOU THINK THIS TRAGEDY

WILL SOMEHOW CHANGE THAT?

David: GORDON, I

DON'T THINK SO.

I'VE BEEN UP HERE NOW

CLOSE TO 15 YEARS.

REMEMBER GABRIELLE

GIFFORDS SIX YEARS AGO,

AND THE POLITICAL CLIMATE

GOT WORSE AFTER THAT THE

SHOOTING, NOT BETTER.

I DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING

NEW HERE TO CHANGE,

GORDON.

WE HEARD A LOT OF FLOWERY

STATEMENTS FROM PAUL RYAN

AND NANCY PELOSI -- I'M

NOT DEMEANING IT, BUT IT

IS NICE FOR ONE DAY, BUT

WOULD YOWHAT ABOUT THE OTHER 364

DAYS?

I'VE COVERED THE TOPICS

AND ISSUES UP HERE FOR A

VERY LONG TIME, AND I CAN

TELL YOU THIS REALLY IS A

BATTLE FOR OUR CULTURE.

THERE ARE CONSERVATIVE

REPUBLICANS UP HERE, AND

CONSERVATIVES OVER ALL,

THAT ARE BATTLING FOR THE

CULTURE.

THERE ARE LIBERALS ON THE

OTHER SIDE, WHO WANT TO

MOVE OUR COUNTRY IN A

CERTAIN DIRECTION.

AND THAT'S THE COLDRUM.

AND THEN YOU HAVE DONALD

TRUMP, WHO THROWS

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS OUT

THE WINDOW, AND IT IS A

VERY VOLATILE SOLUTION OR

PROBLEM THAT IS TURNING

INTO WHAT WE SAW

YESTERDAY.

Gordon: ARE THE

REPUBLICANS CONCERNED

ABOUT THE THREAT TO THEIR

SAFETY?

> David: I HEARD ERIC

MENTION WHAT ARE THEY

GOING TO DO?

THEY HAVE TO MOVE ON.

THERE WAS A SENATOR -- AND

I WON'T GIVE THE NAME OUT:

OUT -- BUT A SENATOR'S

OFFICE SAID THEY HAVE SEEN

THE NUMBER OF THREATS GO

UP CONSIDERABLY OVER THE

LAST FEW MONTHS.

AND THERE IS TALK ON

CAPITOL HILL ABOUT DOING

SOMETHING, BUT THAT IS THE

KEY WORD: WHAT IS THE

SOMETHING?

AND THERE IS TALK ABOUT

DIPPING INTO CAMPAIGN

FUNDS, AND THEY HAVE TO

CHANGE THE LAWS UP HERE ON

CAPITOL HILL ABOUT THAT.

BUT CONGRESSMAN DIPPING

INTO THEIR CAMPAIGN FUNDS

TO PROVIDE SECURITY DETAIL

TO THEM.

THAT IS ONE OF A MYRIAD OF

SUGGESTIONS UP HERE.

Gordon: AND THERE IS

TALK ABOUT A CONCEALED

CARRY LEGISLATION THAT

WOULD ALLOW THEM TO BEAR

ARMS WITHIN D.C.?

WILL THAT HAPPEN?

David: NOT MUCH

TRACTION ON THAT, EITHER.

THERE IS A BILL HERE ON

THE HOUSE SIDER BY BARRY

LOUDERMILK, WHO WAS AT THE

BASEBALL PRACTICE

YESTERDAY, AND HE

INTRODUCED THAT

LEGISLATION.

AND BASICALLY WHAT THEY'RE

TRYING TO DO WITH THAT

LEGISLATION -- AND THERE

IS COMPANION LEGISLATION

THAT MEANS IF YOU HAVE A

CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT IN

THE STATE YOU'RE FROM, YOU

WOULD BE ALLOWED TO COME

TO D.C. AND HAVE IT HERE

AS WELL.

THAT'S BEEN TRIED HERE FOR

YEARS.

IT HASN'T GONE ANYWHERE.

I DON'T NECESSARILY EXPECT

THAT TO GO MUCH FURTHER UP

HERE AS WELL.

Gordon: LET'S GO BACK

TO THE POISONED

ATMOSPHERE.

THERE IS A REPORT, A LEAK,

THAT THE SPECIAL COUNCIL

MAY INVESTIGATE TRUMP FOR

OPSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

HOW DO YOU THINK THE WHITE

HOUSE WILL RESPOND?

David: WELL, THE

WHITE HOUSE HAS PUT

THEMSELVES IN A POSITION

WHERE ALL COMMENTS WILL

COME FROM THE LAWYER IN

THE CASE.

HOWEVER, THERE ARE ALWAYS

COMMENTS COMING FROM

DONALD TRUMP'S TWITTER

FEED.

THIS IS DONALD TRUMP

SAYING, "YOU ARE

WITNESSING THE GREATEST

WITCH HUNT IN AMERICAN

POLITICAL HISTORY, LED BY

SOME VERY BAD AND

CONFLICTED PEOPLE."

SO, LOOK, THIS IS DONALD

TRUMP FIGHTING BACK.

THAT'S WHAT HE DOES.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY

QUESTION HERE THAT DONALD

TRUMP INTENDED TO MAKE

SURE HIS NAME WAS CLEARED.

HE'LL BE THE FIRST ONE TO

ADMIT THAT.

HE WANTED HIS NAME

CLEARED.

THE QUESTION IS: WAS THERE

INTENT TO OBSTRUCT

JUSTICE.

AND, OF COURSE, THAT IS

MUCH HIGHER BAR AND WE GET

INTO A LOT OF LEGAL

ISSUES.

I WILL SAY THIS: THE

LAWYERS FOR THE TRUMP

WHITE HOUSE ARE BASICALLY

A BIT CONCERNED ABOUT THE

FACT THAT ROBERT MUELLER

HAS HIRED A LOT OF FOLKS

IN HIS LAWYER TEAM WITH

DEMOCRATIC TIES, WHETHER

IT BE FINANCIAL OR

OTHERWISE.

THAT HAS THEM A BIT UP AT

NIGHT.

Gordon: WELL, I

FRANKLY DON'T THINK IT'S

GOING TO GO ANYWHERE.

ALAN DERSHOWITZ HAS

ALREADY COME OUT TO SAY IT

IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE

FOR THE PRESIDENT TO

OBSTRUCT JUSTICE AT THE

FEDERAL LEVEL.

THE F.B.I. REPORTS TO HIM.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

REPORTS TO HIM.

AND IN ANY CASE, HE CAN

ALWAYS END ANY

INVESTIGATION BY PARDONING

ANYONE INVOLVED IN IT.

SO YOU SORT OF SCRATCH

YOUR HEAD FROM A LEGAL

STANDPOINT.

BUT MUELLER CLEARLY HAS A

DREAM TEAM, AND IT LOOKS

LIKE WE'RE GOING TO BE IN

FOR A LONG, LONG

INVESTIGATION.

MANY HEADLINES TO COME.

> WELL, DAVID, THANK

YOU.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

INSIGHT.

David: THANKS,

GORDON.

Gordon: I DO WANT TO

REMIND PEOPLE THAT WE HAVE

AN ASPIRATION, AND I HOPE

IT IS MORE THAN AN

ASPIRATION, I HOPE WE CAN

MAKE IT REAL -- THAT WE

ARE ONE NATION, UNDER GOD,

INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY

AND JUSTICE FOR UL.

ALL.

AND THE CURRENT POLITICAL

CLIMATE, I BELIEVE, HAS

LED TO THIS.

YOU CERTAINLY HERE THE

RHETORIC CALLING FOR ALL

KINDS OF THINGS.

AND FOR SOMEBODY TO

ACTUALLY ACT ON THAT IS

SHOCKING TO US.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, IT

IS A BYPRODUCT OF THE

CLIMATE.

SO WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

I THINK WE NEED TO PRAY.

AND WE ARE ALREADY SEEING

THAT ON CAPITOL HILL.

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS

COMING TOGETHER TO PRAY.

AND WE NEED TO ONCE AGAIN

REAFFIRM WE ARE ONE NATION

UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE.

WE MAY HAVE OUR POLITICAL

DIFFERENCES, BUT IT SHOULD

NOT DIVIDE US AS A NATION.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, FOX NEWS' MELISSA

FRANCIS REVEALS THE SECRET

TO ALL OF THE TEARS SHE

SHED WHEN SHE STARRED IN

"LITTLE HOUSE ON THE

PRAIRIE."

I IMAGINED ALL OF MY

PETS DYING.

I MANAGED THAT MY DOG AND

CAT AND FISH WERE IN THE

WAGON.

AND I IMAGINED THAT AND I

WAS SOBBING AND WAILING.

Terry: MELISSA

FRANCIS TALKS ABOUT THE

REAL LIFE LESSONS SHE

LEARNED FROM "THE

PRAIRIE," WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Terry: SHE'S A

POPULAR ANCHOR ON FOX

BUSINESS CHANNEL AND FOX

NEWS.

SHE WAS A CHILDHOOD

ACTRESS ON ONE OF THE MOST

BELOVED SHOWS OF ALL TIME,

"LITTLE HOUSE ON THE

PRAIRIE."

SHE RECENTLY SAT DOWN WITH

OUR WENDY GRIFFITH IN NEW

YORK TO TALK ABOUT HER

LIFE, HER FAITH, AND HER

NEW BOOK.

Wendy: AT ONLY SIX

MONTHS OLD, MELISSA

FRANCIS LANDED HER FIRST

BIG GIG, A JOHNSON AND

JOHNSON BABY SHAMPOO

COMMERCIAL.

THEN AT EIGHT CAME THE

ROLE OF A LIFETIME ON

"LITTLE HOUSE ON THE

PRAIRIE," STARRING MICHAEL

LANDON.

WHAT WAS MICHAEL LANDON

LIKE?

HE WAS SORT OF LIKE

SANTA CLAUS AND A GOD-LIKE

FIGURE ALL ROLLED INTO

ONE.

HE WAS INCREDIBLY FUN, BUT

HE WAS ALSO SO

HARD-WORKING, SO SMART.

HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST

PEOPLE TO FIGURE OUT IN

ORDER TO MAKE A DIFFERENT

IN TELEVISION, YOU NEEDED

TO OWN IT.

Wendy: SHE LITTLE

INGALLS, AND THEY WERE

LEFT ORPHANED WHEN THEIR

PARENTS' COVERED WAGON

CAREENED DOWN THE HILL.

SHE COULD CRY REAL TEARS.

I IMAGINED THAT MY DOG

WAS IN THERE AND MY CAT

AND MY FISH, AND THE WATER

WAS EVERYWHERE, AND I

IMAGINED THAT AND I WAS

SOBBING AND WAILING.

SO I TRIED IT OUT WHEN I

GOT A TICKET RECENTLY, AND

I ENDED UP BURSTING INTO

LAUGHTER.

IT DIDN'T WORK AND I GOT

THE TICKET.

Wendy: BY AGE 18,

MELISSA WASN'T SURE SHE

WANTED TO MAKE ACTING HER

LIFE.

SO SHE SWITCHED GEARS

COMPLETELY, AND HEADED TO

HARVARD TO MAJOR IN

ECONOMICS, WITH THE GOAL

OF BECOMING A TELEVISION

NEWS REPORTER.

BUT BREAKING INTO TV NEWS

PROVED MUCH HARDER THAN

MELISSA THAN ACTING.

MY HANDS WERE ALWAYS

SHAKING.

I WAS SO NERVOUS.

I WASN'T MAKING ANY MONEY.

I WANTED TO BE IN THIS

BUSINESS SO BADLY, I

TRUSTED IF I KEPT WORKING

HARD AND KNOCKING ON THOSE

DOORS, IT WOULD WORK OUT.

Wendy: DESPITE HER

FIERCE DETERMINATION, SHE

WAS FIRED FROM HER FIRST

ON-AIR JOB.

I HAD SUCH NERVES.

AND I WOULD LOOK INTO THE

CAMERA AND I FELT LIKE A

BLACK ABYSS SUCKED THE AIR

OUT OF MY BODY.

I WAS TRYING TO GET

THROUGH THAT PROCESS, BUT

I DIDN'T HAVE TIME BEFORE

I GOT FIRED.

AS THE FIRST ORDER OF

BUSINESS, SHE TOLD ME I

HAD 30 MINUTES TO PACK UP

MY THINGS AND GET OUT.

AND IT WAS DEVASTATING.

AND I WENT BACK TO MY

APARTMENT AND I MOSTLY

CRIED AND FELT SORRY FOR

MYSELF.

THAT'S STEP ONE IN THE

ROAD TO RECOVERY, WALLOW

IN A GIANT VAT OF

SELF-PITY.

Wendy: MELISSA WENT

BACK TO TV, AND AFTER

YEARS ON THE LOCAL NEWS

CIRCUIT, SHE GOT HER BIG

BREAK AND A CHANCE TO WORK

ALONGSIDE HER TV IDOL,

MARIA BARTIROMO.

I SAW HER AND I

THOUGHT, SHE IS FANTASTIC.

SHE IS BRILLIANT,

POWERFUL, AND BEAUTIFUL.

SHE SHOWED YOU YOU COULD

DO ALL OF IT.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO

COMPROMISE ANY PIECE OF

IT.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO TRY TO

LOOK LIKE AND ACT LIKE A

MAN.

YOU COULD BE A FEMININE

WOMAN AND STILL BE

BRILLIANT AND POWERFUL.

Wendy: SHE LOVED HER

TIME AT CNBC UNTIL ONE DAY

SHE REPORTED THAT THE MATH

ON OBAMACARE DIDN'T ADD

UP.

I WAS TOLD I WAS

DISRESPECTING THE OFFICE

OF THE PRESIDENT.

AND I SAID, WAIT, I HAVE A

DEGREE IN ECONOMICS.

AND I WAS TOLD TO STOP.

Wendy: SHE MADE THE

JUMP TO FOX NEWS.

WHERE AILS GAVE HER SOME

ADVICE.

TAKE RISKS.

GO BIG OR GO HOME -- HE

DIDN'T SAY THAT DIRECTLY,

BUT THAT'S WHAT HE MEANT.

HE SAID PEOPLE IN THE

AUDIENCE CAN TELL WHEN

YOU'RE BEING FAITH.

> NOT BAKIN BACKING DOWN, THE

WHITE HOUSE RESPONDING

MOMENTS AGO --

Wendy: TODAY, SHE IS

SEEN REGULARLY ON A NUMBER

OF FOX NEWS' SHOWS AND

COHOSTS "AFTER THE BELL."

SHE MET AND MARRIED RAY,

AND TOGETHER THEY HAVE

THREE CHILDREN.

SHE SAID HER CATHOLIC

FAITH AND HIS METHODIST

FAITH TURNED OUT TO BE THE

PERFECT COMBINATION.

WE SEND OUR KIDS TO

CATHOLIC SCHOOL DURING THE

WEEK AND WE GO TO A

METHODIST CHURCH ON

SUNDAY.

Wendy: THIS IS A

GREAT TIME IN YOUR LIFE?

I FEEL SO BLESSED.

THE FIRST THING I DO EVERY

SUNDAY IS I LOOK AROUND AT

MY FAMILY AND I THANK GOD

FOR MY BLESSINGS.

IT IS NOT A RESULT OF

ANYTHING I'VE DONE.

I GIVE ALL OF MY GLORY TO

GOD.

I TRY NOT TO BEAT MYSELF

UP WHEN I MAKE MISTAKE,

AND INSTEAD LEARN FROM

THEM AND ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS AND MOVE ON.

I HAVE FINALLY REACHED A

POINT WHERE I FINALLY HAVE

THAT PEACE, AND, YES, JOY,

THAT I ALWAYS WANTED.

Wendy: AND THOUGH SHE

IS FAIR AWAY FROM THE LIFE

SHE LIVED ON WALNUT GROVE,

MELISSA SAYS THE LESSONS

SHE LEARNED ON THE PRAIRIE

ARE STILL VERY MUCH WITH

HER TODAY.

WENDY GRIFFITH, CBN NEWS,

NEW YORK.

Terry: AND THOSE

LESSONS ARE SHARED WITH US

IN HER LATEST BOOK,

"LESSONS FROM THE

PRAIRIE," BY MELISSA

FRANCIS.

THE SUBTITLE IS "THE

SURPRISING SECRETS TO

HAPPINESS, SUCCESS, AND

SOMETIMES JUST SURVIVAL."

IT IS A GOOD READ.

GET AHOLD OF IT.

Gordon: UP NEXT, IN

THE GOLDEN JUBILEE OF THE

CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC

RENEWAL.

THE FIRST THING THAT

THE RENEWAL TEACHES YOU IS

THAT GOD LOVES YOU SO

MUCH.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

THIS CONNECTION WITH THE

HOLY SPIRIT TODAY, OH,

IT'S REAL.

IT IS PALPABLE.

Gordon: THE PIONEERS

OF THIS MOVEMENT TRACE IT

BACK TO ITS BEGINNINGS 50

YEARS AGO, AFTER THIS.

Gordon: THIS YEAR

CATHOLICS ALL OVER THE

WORLD ARE CELEBRATING THE

GOLDEN JUBILEE OF THE

CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC

RENEWAL, ESPECIALLY THE

PIONEERS OF THAT RENEWAL.

AS THEY LOOK BACK OVER THE

LAST 50 YEARS, THEY STILL

FEEL THE FIRE OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT THAT SPREAD FROM

THEIR SMALL COLLEGE ALL

THE WAY AROUND THE GLOBE.

IT IS REALLY

INTERESTING, OF ALL FOUR

GOSPELS, JOHN THE BAPTIST

INTRODUCES JESUS NOT ONLY

AS THE LAMB OF GOD WHO

TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE

WORLD, BUT ONE WHO WILL

BAPTIST IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

SO THAT IS ONE OF THE

ESSENTIAL THINGS THAT

JESUS DOES.

*

Reporter: POPE

FRANCIS BEGAN PENTECOST

2017 CELEBRATION WITH A

PRAYER AT THE MAXIMUS IN

ROME.

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

FROM AROUND THE WORLD

JOINED THE POPE TO MARK

THE 50th JUBILEE OF THE

CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC

RENEWAL.

*

Reporter: THE

COLLEGE-AGED AMERICAN

PIONEERS OF THE RENEWAL

ARE NOW ITS ELDERS, AND

MANY WERE IN ATTENDANCE.

IN THEIR LIFETIME, THE

RENEWAL HAS SPARKED A NEW

PENTECOST AMONG CATHOLICS

WORLDWIDE.

THE MOVEMENT BEGAN IN

1967, WHEN THE GIFTS WERE

BESTOWED UPON A GROUP OF

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS.

KEVIN AND DOROTHY REMEMBER

WHEN FRIENDS FIRST TOLD

THEM ABOUT THE OUTPOURING.

MY REACTION HERE WAS

PRETTY NEGATIVE, AND SO

WAS DOROTHY'S.

BUT WE KNEW THESE PEOPLE

WELL.

THEY WERE SOLID,

RESPONSIBLE,

RENEWAL-MINDED CATHOLICS

AND THEY WERE SCHOLARS.

WE WERE ALL IN THE

INTELLECTUAL LIFE.

WE WERE ALL STUDENTS OR

PROFESSORS IN CHURCH

HISTORY, PHILOSOPHY.

SO WE CAN SEE EVEN IN

THEIR FACES THERE WAS

SOMETHING CHANGED AND

DIFFERENT.

AND SO ALTHOUGH WE WANTED

TO DISCOUNT WHAT THEY WERE

SAYING AS SOUNDING A

LITTLE FRINGY, WE COULD

NOT DENY THE EXPERIENCE WE

SAW THEY HAD HAD THAT

CHANGED THEM.

WHATEVER IT WAS, I THINK

WE CAME TO SEE WE WANTED

THAT, TOO.

WE WANTED MORE.

WE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

THE "MORE" WAS, BUT WE

WANTED MORE.

MORE OF THE LORD, MORE

EMPOWERMENT.

Reporter: NEWLY

MARRIED AT THE TIME, KEVIN

TAUGHT THEOLOGY AT ST.

MARY'S COLLEGE.

DOROTHY WAS A CATHOLIC

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER.

BOTH EARNED MASTER'S

DEGREES IN THEOLOGY.

KEVIN EMBARKED ON A

SIX-WEEK CLASS IN

SCRIPTURES, AMONG FELLOW

CATHOLICS.

THIS WAS A PERSONAL

EXPERIENCE OF JESUS

STANDING NEXT TO ME, WHEN

I HAD NEVER HAD BEFORE.

AND IT WAS VERY POWERFUL.

AND IT WAS SO CHANGING.

I MEAN, SUDDENLY, EVEN

THAT NIGHT, SCRIPTURE WAS

ALIVE, MY FAITH WAS

RENEWED, I WAS FILLED WITH

JOY.

Reporter: DOROTHY

RECEIVED THE BAPTISM THE

NEXT DAY, ALONG IN THE

CHAPEL.

IT IS LIKE THEY PLANTED

A FLAG IN THE CENTER OF MY

LIFE AND SAID, THIS IS

PERMANENT.

AND IT CHANGED EVERYTHING.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

SEARCHED OUT AN

ORGANIZATION WITH ROOTS IN

PENTECOSTALISM TO USE THE

GIFTS.

I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW HE

REACTED FROM THIS PHONE

CALL.

Reporter: AFTER

SPENDING SOME TIME WITH

THE FULL GOSPEL

BUSINESSMEN, THEY BEGAN TO

LEAD MEETINGS I ON THE NOTRE

DAME CAMPUS.

WE HAD THESE LARGE

PRAYER MEETINGS, SOMETIMES

400 PEOPLE.

THEY WERE AMAZING MEETINGS

IN THAT WE WERE ALL SO NEW

TO THIS.

WE STARTED PRAYING FOR

EVERYBODY, IF THEY WANTED

HEALING.

AND QUITE OFTEN WE SAW

HEALING.

Reporter: JUST AFTER

EASTER IN 1967, CATHOLIC

STUDENTS FROM TOP AMERICAN

UNIVERSITIES MET AT NOTRE

DAME TO LEARN MORE ABOUT

THE OUTPOURING.

RALPH MARTIN, A NOTRE DAME

PHILOSOPHY MAJOR BROUGHT

40 STUDENTS TO THE

CONFERENCE.

THERE WAS ONE NUN FROM

CANADA WHO CAME.

Reporter: LATER

MEMBERS OF THE RENEWAL

MOVEMENT LAUNCHED MINISTRY

ENTERPRISES, LIKE "NEW

COVENANT" MAGAZINE.

THAT SUMMER, SEVERAL

DUCANE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

LIVED WITH CBN BOARD

MEMBER HAROLD BRADENSON,

TO LEARN STREET

EVANGELISM.

IT WAS LIKE DISCOVERING

IN HIS SCHOOL, HOW GREAT

WAS TO WALK IN GOD'S

PROVIDENCE.

WE REALIZED WE HAD A

RESPONSIBILITY NOT JUST TO

PREACH THE GOSPEL, BUT TO

LEARN HOW TO DO IT WELL,

AND TO BE EFFECTIVE AT IT.

Reporter: BACK AT

NOTRE DAME, CATHOLIC

PRIESTS, NUNS, AND LAY

LEADERS ATTENDED THE

MEETINGS WHILE ON CAMPUS

FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION.

WHEN THEY WENT HOME,

THEY TOOK THIS WITH THEM.

THEY WENT ALL OVER THE

UNITED STATES.

THEY WENT TO AUSTRALIA.

THEY WENT TO THE

PHILIPPINES.

THEY WENT TO VARIOUS

COUNTRIES IN EUROPE.

SO I CAN REMEMBER ONE

NIGHT BEING IN THAT ROOM

AND HEARING A PROPHECY

THAT I REMEMBER THIS WAY:

FIRE, FIRE, FIRE SPREADING

FROM EAST TO WEST.

AND IT WENT ON TO TALK

ABOUT WHAT WE WERE

EXPERIENCING SPREADING

AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: AFTER THE

NATIONAL CATHOLIC REPORTER

RAN NEWSPAPER COVERAGE OF

THE OUTPOURING, POPE PAUL

THE 6th SENT A CARDINAL

FROM BELGIUM TO EVALUATE

WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

THE CARDINAL MET WITH

RALPH MARTIN AND OBSERVED

VARIOUS STUDENT GROUPS.

SO ALL MY LIFE, HE

SAID, I'VE BEEN SEARCHING

FOR WHEREVER THE HOLY

SPIRIT IS WORKING, TRYING

TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

I CAME HERE, AND I SEE THE

HOLY SPIRIT WORKING, AND I

WANT TO DO WHATEVER I CAN

TO OPEN THE WHOLE CATHOLIC

CHURCH UP TO IT.

Reporter: CARDINAL

SOONAN INVITED RALPH AND

HIS YOUNG FAMILY TO

BELGIUM, TO HELP LEAD THE

RENEWAL IN EUROPE.

BY 1975, 10,000 CATHOLIC

CHARISMATICS FROM AROUND

THE WORLD JOINED THE

CARDINAL IN ROME FOR

PENTECOST.

WE WILL SHOW THEM YOUR

FAITH.

Reporter: POPE PAUL

THE 6th ENTERED ST.

PETER'S BASILICA AND

ADDRESSED THE MOVEMENT AS

A CHANCE FOR THE CHURCH.

RIGHT FROM THE VERY

TOP, IT WAS AN OPEN DOOR

TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AND IT WENT ON FROM THERE.

Reporter: AND THE

RENEWCASTLE BIRTHERENEWAL BIRTHED NEW

RELIGIOUS GROUPS.

> A PROFESSOR AT THE

UNIVERSITY IN TEXAS

RECEIVED THE BAPTISM IN

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AFTER A NUN WHO ATTENDED

THE NOTRE DAME MEETINGS

DEMONSTRATED SPIRITUAL

GIFTS.

HERE IS THE NEW

TESTAMENT RIGHT IN FRONT

OF ME.

THIS IS HAPPENING AS THE

HOLY SPIRIT, RIGHT IN

FRONT OF ME.

I HAD BEEN BAPTIZED AND

CONFIRMED.

I HAD MADE RELIGIOUS VOWS.

I WAS ORDAINED AS A

PRIEST, YOU KNOW.

AND SO ALL OF THOSE THINGS

KIND OF BLOCKED ME A

LITTLE BIT BECAUSE, YOU

KNOW, WHAT MORE DO I NEED?

Reporter: AFTER 25

YEARS OF MINISTRY IN THE

RENEWAL, FATHER MONTAGUE

AND BOB HOGAN FORMED

"BROTHERS OF THE BELOVED

DISCIPLE."

PEOPLE CAN SAY, WOW,

GOD IS IN YOUR MIDST,

TRULY JESUS IS REACHING

OUT TO ME.

Reporter: A FRUIT OF

THEIR MINISTRY IS MARLI, A

WIDOWED RETIRED SCHOOL

TEACHER FROM SAN ANTONIO,

WHO SPENT 30 YEARS AWAY

FROM THE CHURCH.

SHE SAYS THE RENEWAL LED

HER BACK TO CRIEFTD.

>CHRIST.

I WAS IN SUCH DARKNESS,

I KNEW I HAD TO GO BACK TO

THE CHURCH.

THE FIRST THING THE

RENEWAL TEACHES YOU IS GOD

LOVES YOU SO MUCH, YOU

HAVE NO IDEA.

GOD IS YOUR PERFECT

FATHER.

D.V.D., "IN OUR HANDS: THE

BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM."

JUST TODAY THE HEADLINES

ABOUT THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY PAYING FOR

SUICIDE BOMBERS, PAYING

ROOTS OF THAT UNLESS YOU

KNOW THE STORY OF THE

HISTORY.

SO I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU GIVE

US A GIFT OF $15 OR MORE.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT, CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: AMU WAS A MOM

WITH TWO CHILDREN TO FEED

AND A BABY ON THE WAY.

AFTER HER HUSBAND WAS SENT

TO JAIL, AMU GAME

DESPERATE, UNTIL SHE GOT

HELP FROM CBN'S O "ORPHANS'

PROMISE." TAKE A LOOK.

GOING TO GRANDMA'S

HOUSE FOR DINNER HAD

BECOME A REGULAR THING FOR

AMU AND HER KIDS.

THEY WENT BECAUSE THEY

WERE STARVING.

MY PARENTS HAVE BEEN SO

SUPPORTIVE.

THEY DON'T HAVE MUCH, BUT

THEY SHARE IT WITH US.

I KNOW THEY HAVE LOTS OF

BILLS TO PAY, TOO.

Terry: AMU MAKES

CRAFTS TO SELL AT THE

MARKET.

SHE LEARNED SHE WAS

PREGNANT JUST BEFORE HER

HUSBAND WAS SENT TO JAIL

ON A DRUG CHARGE.

SHE IS UNDER A LOT OF

STRESS.

I DO CHORES AND LOOK AFTER

MY BROTHER TO HELP OUT.

Terry: DURING THE

LAST MONTHS OF HER

PREGNANCY, AMU COULD

BARELY WALK TO THE MARKET,

AND HER CRAFTS SUPPLIES

WERE NEARLY GONE.

SO CBN'S "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" HELPED IN TWO

WAYS.

FIRST, WE RESTOCKED HER

CRAFT MATERIALS FOR THE

BUSINESS.

THEN WHEN THE BABY WAS

BORN, "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

COVERED HOSPITAL COSTS FOR

THE DELIVERY, ABOUT $200.

FINALLY WE GAVE AMU SOME

FORMULA AND SUPPLIES FOR

HER NEWBORN.

WE WERE IN A VERY

DIFFICULT SEASON OF OUR

LIFE.

AND "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

CAME JUST IN TIME FOR US.

Terry: TODAY THE BABY

IS NOW A TODDLER AND IS

DOING WELL.

AMU'S BUSINESS CONTINUES

TO GROW, THANKS TO

CONTRACTS WITH LOCAL

STORES.

AND OCCASIONALLY THEY EVEN

INVITE THE GRANDPARENTS TO

THEIR HOUSE FOR DINNER.

WE ALWAYS HAVE FOOD TO

EAT.

WE USED TO DEPEND ON MY

GRANDPARENTS ALL THE TIME.

I'M SO GLAD THAT NOW WE

CAN HELP THEM.

THANK YOU, "ORPHANS'

PROMISE." YOU HAVE BLESSED

MY HEART.

Terry: IT IS SO

REWARDING TO SEE A FAMILY

STAY TOGETHER, TO SEE

CHILDREN HAPPILY WITH

THEIR PARENTS, TO SEE THEM

ALL ENGAGING IN LIFE WITH

GRANDPARENTS.

FOOD ON THE TABLE AND

OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A

LIVING.

YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW

EASY IT IS TO MAKE THAT

HAPPEN WITH A SMALL AMOUNT

OF MONEY.

WHEN WE ALL LINK ARMS

TOGETHER, WE CAN DO IT FOR

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

WE KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER.

WE KEEP CULTURES STRONG.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR PARTNERING WITH US IN

THAT.

WE'RE OUT TO MAKE A CHANGE

IN THE LIVES OF VULNERABLE

CHILDREN, AND SOMETIMES IT

IS JUST AN ISSUE OF

POVERTY.

SO "700 CLUB" MEMBERS, YOU

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN ALL

OF THAT.

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

AND IT IS SO EASY TO JOIN.

YOU CALL OUR TOLL-FREE

NUMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, I WANT TO JOIN

"THE 700 CLUB."

IMMEDIATELY UPON JOINING,

YOU'LL BE TOUCHING THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE LIKE AMU

AND HER FAMILY.

AND OUR WAY OF TOUCHING

YOUR LIFE AND SAYING THANK

YOU IS TO SEND YOU

"MIRACLES."

THIS IS A D.V.D. TEACHING

THAT PAT HAS DONE, WHERE

HE SHARES BIBLICALLY ABOUT

THE CONCEPT OF HEALING,

GOD'S POWER, AND THE

AVAILABILITY OF THAT

POWER, AND MANY TOWERS

THAT WILL BUILD YOUR

FAITH.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS.

WE SAY THANK YOU FOR

CARING ABOUT OTHERS.

Gordon: UP NEXT, A

MAN WHO WAS IN TREMENDOUS

PAIN.

I HAD EXCRUCIATING PAIN

ALL UP AND DOWN MY LEFT

SIDE.

WHEN THEY ASKED ME ON A

SCALE OF ONE TO 10, HOW

HIGH WAS IT, I SAID 11.

Gordon: SEE HOW HE

WAS SUPERNATURALLY HEALED

Gordon: PARALYSIS WAS

CREEPING UP THE LEFT SIDE

OF DAVID CHOCKA'S FACE,

AND FOR A LONG TIME

DOCTORS HAD NO CLUE WHAT

WAS WRONG WITH HIM.

THEN ONCE THEY DID FIND

OUT, THEY TOLD HIM IT WAS

TOO LATE FOR TREATMENT.

WHILE I WAS TALKING TO

THE DOCTOR, MY FACE

PARALYZED FROM THE CORNER

OF THIS EYEBROW ALL THE

WAY ALMOST ON A DIAGONAL

TO THE BOTTOM CORNER OF MY

RIGHT SIDE OF MY FACE.

I WAS UNABLE TO SPEAK OR

CONTROL MY FACE.

MY EYE COULD NOT CLOSE.

Reporter: A WEEK

EARLIER ON FATHER'S DAY,

2013, PASTOR DAVID BEGAN

TO EXPERIENCE SEVERE PAIN

IN HIS EAR.

I WENT TO BED THAT

NIGHT, AND I HAD

EXCRUCIATING PAIN ALL UP

AND DOWN MY LEFT SIDE.

AND I BEGAN TO SWEAT

PROFUSELY.

I SWEAT THROUGH FOUR PAIRS

OF PAJAMAS THAT NIGHT.

SOME SOMEONE WOULD ASK ME

ON A SCALE OF ONE TO 10,

WHAT WAS IT, I SAID 11.

Reporter: THE DOCTOR

TOLD HIM IT WAS AN

INFECTED MOSQUITO BITE AND

PRESCRIBED ANTIBIOTICS.

BUT THE FOLLOWING MORNING

NEW SYMPTOMS APPEARED.

I WAS SHAVING AND MY

WIFE CAME INTO THE

BATHROOM AND SHE NOTICED

THERE WAS A RED RING

UNDERNEATH MY LEFT EAR.

AND SHE CAME BACK LATER,

AND NOTICED THAT THE RING

HAD EXPANDED.

IT WAS QUITE

FRIGHTENING FOR US, AND HE

WAS VERY ILL.

AND SOMEONE OVER THE AGE

OF 50...

Reporter: HE HIS

WIFE, ELIZABETH, DROVE HIM

TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM,

WHERE DOCTORS STARTED A

NEW ROUND OF ANTIBIOTICS.

THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY,

THINGS WORSENED.

I HAD A PIECE OF TOAST,

AND INSTEAD OF IT TASTING

LIKE TOAST, IT TASTEED

LIKE SUGAR.

THAT WAS ODD.

I THOUGHT, SOMETHING IS

NOT RIGHT NEUROLOGICALLY.

AND MY LIP BEGAN TO

PARALYZE.

I COULDN'T FEEL IT.

I CALLED MY WIFE, AND SHE

LOOKED AT ME, AND THE

PARALYSIS WAS EXPANDING

OUT ACROSS MY FACE, ON THE

LEFT SIDE IN PARTICULARLY.

Reporter: DAVID WAS

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL,

WHERE DOCTORS DIAGNOSED

HIM WITH A SEVERE

NEUROLOGICAL DISORDER

CAUSED BY A SHINGLES

OUTBREAK.

HE SAID YOU ARE EIGHT

DAYS, AND THE TREATMENT

WINDOW IS USUALLY TWO OR

THREE DAYS WHEN YOU

DISCOVER YOU HAVE A

SHINGLES INFECTION.

I HAD A 40% CHANCE OF

GETTING SOME OF MY FACE

BACK.

Reporter: HIS WIFE

AND HIS CHURCH BEGAN TO

PRAY.

OUR CONGREGATION, ABOUT

1200 PEOPLE, AND MANY,

MANY PEOPLE OF THAT GROUP

WERE PRAYING.

PLUS OUR FRIENDS FROM

OTHER CONGREGATIONS WE

SERVED.

Reporter: DAVID WAS

ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL

FOR A ROUND OF STEROID

TREATMENTS, THOUGH DOCTORS

HAD LITTLE HOPE THEY WOULD

HELP.

WHILE THERE, HE OPENED UP

A BIBLE.

I WAS READING JOHN 5,

AND THE QUESTION TO JESUS

IN JOHN 5, TO THE MAN 38

YEARS SICK, HE SAYS THIS

MAGNIFICENT STATEMENT:

"YOU HAVE BEEN MADE WELL."

AND I KNEW I WAS TALKING

TO THE LORD AND NOT JUST

READING A PASSAGE.

Reporter: DAVID LEFT

THE HOSPITAL 10 DAYS LATER

WITH NO CHANGE IN HIS

CONDITION.

HIS DOCTOR RECOMMENDED HE

FIND ANOTHER VOCATION.

HE SAID, YOU'RE

PROBABLY NOT GOING TO

SPEAK AGAIN.

I THOUGHT, OH, WHAT A

TERRIBLE THING.

I WAS SLEEPING 16 HOURS A

DAY, UNABLE TO GET ENERGY.

IT WAS SCARY, BUT THE

STRANGE THING WAS THE

SOLUTION, WHEN I BECAME

TERRIFIED, EVERY SINGLE

TIME I WOULD SAY JOHN 5:

14: "YOU HAVE BEEN MADE

WELL," THE GIFT OF FAITH

WOULD RISE INSIDE MY SOUL.

I WOULD KNOW I WAS GOING

TO BE WELL, EVEN THOUGH

ALL OF THE EVIDENCE SAID

THAT I WASN'T GOING TO BE.

Reporter: HIS CHURCH

GRANTED HIM A LEAVE OF

ABSENCE, AND FRIENDS AND

FAMILY CONTINUED TO PRAY.

THEN THIS WOMAN GAIL

SAID, I PRAYED FOR YOU.

AND WHAT HAS COME TO ME IS

THE STORY OF PAUL THE

APOSTLE, WHEN THE

SHIPWRECK HAPPENED AT THE

END OF ACTS.

AND THEY'RE BUILDING A

FIRE, AND HE PICKS UP A

PIECE OF WOOD TO THROW IT

IN THE FIRE, AND A VIPER

LANDS ON HIS WRIST.

AND HE SHAKES THE VIPER

OFF INTO HIS FIRE.

THIS WOMAN SAYS, THE ENEMY

HAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE.

YOU ARE TO SHAKE THIS OFF

IN THE SAME WAY THAT AS

THE APOSTLE PAUL SHOOK

THIS OFF.

THEN WHEN YOU HAVE BECOME

WELL, THE LORD WILL USE

THIS AS A PLATFORM.

Reporter: THE

FOLLOWING SUNDAY, HE WENT

TO HIS COUSIN'S CHURCH TO

HEAR HIM PREACH.

AND A LADY GETS UP AND

SAYS, THE ENEMY HAS TAKEN

ADVANTAGE, BUT YOU MUST

SHAKE THIS OFF.

AND WHEN YOU DO, THE LORD

WILL USE THIS AS A

PLATFORM FOR THE

PROCLAMATION OF THE

GOSPEL.

SHE SAID EXACTLY WHAT MY

FRIEND HAD SAID JUST A FEW

DAYS BEFORE.

THE SMALL HAIRS ROSE ON

THE BACK OF MY NECK.

Reporter: DAVID BEGAN

TO NOTICE A CHANGE.

I FELT A TINGLING IN

THE CORNER OF THE UPPER

EYEBROW, AND THAT NIGHT I

WAS ABLE TO MOVE AND OPEN

AND CLOSE MY EYELID.

SO I CALLED MY WIFE AGAIN,

AND SHE CAME AND SAW IT,

AND SHE SAID, SOMETHING IS

HAPPENING.

THE LORD IS BEGINNING THE

HEALING.

AND OVER THE COURSE OF

THAT WEEK, ALL OF IT CAME

BACK.

Reporter: WHEN DAVID

RETURNED TO HIS DOCTOR, HE

WALKED IN THE DOOR,

SMILED

AND WINKED.

THE DOCTOR'S REACTION

WAS, THAT IS MEDICALLY

IMPOSSIBLE.

AND I SAID, I KNOW IT IS

MEDICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

HE SAID, I WAS GOING TO

TALK TO YOU ABOUT PAIN IN

YOUR EAR AND GOING DEAF --

THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN LIKE

THIS.

AND I SAID, I BELIEVE THE

LORD HAS MADE ME WELL.

Reporter: SINCE THEN,

DAVID HAD SHOWN NO SIGNS

OF ILLNESS AND IS BACK TO

PREACHING FULL-TIME.

YEESES IS TH JESUS IS THE HEALER.

IT IS VERY CLEAR IN THE

GOSPEL, HE CAME TO LOVE,

HE CAME TO SAVE, HE CAME

TO DELIVER.

IT IS A DELIGHT TO BE THE

RECIPIENT OF IT AS WELL AS

TO WATCH OTHER PEOPLE

RECEIVE IT.

I'M HERE TO TESTIFY THAT

IT IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

Gordon: I LOVE THAT

STORY.

WONDERFUL HOW GOD STILL

PERFORMS MIRACLES.

HE IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

HE DOES NOT CHANGE.

WHAT HE DID 2,000 YEARS

AGO, HE IS STILL DOING

TODAY.

YOU CAN TRUST IT.

NOW, HOW DO YOU GET IT?

I THINK THIS STORY IS

WONDERFUL BECAUSE IT

ILLUSTRATES HOW YOU GET

IT.

FIRST, YOU NEED TO

UNDERSTAND FAITH COMES BY

HEARING.

HEARING BY THE WORD.

AND WE'VE ALL HAD THE

EXPERIENCE OF VERSES THAT

JUST GET QUICKENED.

AND HE HAD A VERSE THAT

WAS JUST QUICKENED FOR

HIM.

HE HAD TWO WITNESSES.

ONE WHO CAME AND GAVE HIM

A WORD, AND THEN HE WENT

TO ANOTHER CHURCH, AND

GETS CONFIRMATION, WORD

FOR WORD.

WOYOU WOULD EXPECT THAT

WOULD BE INSTANTANEOUS.

AND I LOVE INSTANTANEOUS

HEALINGS.

BUT SOME ALSO TAKE TIME.

THIS ONE TOOK ABOUT A

WEEK.

FROM THAT SECOND WORD IT

STARTED, AND THEN OVER THE

WEEK, FULL RESTORATION.

FAITH COMES BY HEARING.

SOMETIMES WE NEED TO PRAY,

LORD OPEN MY EARS, OPEN

THE EYES OF MY

UNDERSTANDING.

THAT WAS THE GREAT PRAYER

OF PAUL, THAT WE WOULD

UNDERSTAND AND KNOW THE

GREATNESS OF HIS POWER

TOWARDS US WHO BELIEVE.

YOU HAVE TO START WITH

HOPE.

YOU HAVE TO START WITH DO

I HAVE AN OPEN EAR?

AND THEN THE WONDERFUL

THING WHEN JESUS COMES AND

HIS PRESENCE ENVELOPES

YOU, AND YOU KNOW THAT YOU

KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT

YOU ARE HEALED.

AND THEN FAITH IS ALSO AN

ACT.

PART OF THAT WORD FOR

DAVID WAS THAT HE HAD TO

SHAKE IT OFF.

WE NEED TO DO THAT.

GOD IS JUST LOOKING FOR

SOMETHING.

HE IS LOOKING FOR SOME ACT

TO SAY, YES, I'M SHAKING

THIS OFF.

DOES SHAKING HEAL?

NO.

BUT ACTING ON THE WORD,

ACTING ON FAITH DOES

SOMETHING.

IT IS A MYSTERY TO ME WHY,

BUT FAITH IS AN ACTION,

THAT YOU ACT OUT YOUR

FAITH.

SO WHATEVER YOU COULDN'T

DO BEFORE, YOU START

ACTING LIKE YOU CAN

BECAUSE YOU HAVE RECEIVED

THE WORD.

NOW, TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY.

AND WE'RE GOING TO

BELIEVE.

FAITH STARTS WITH BELIEF,

SO LET'S BELIEVE.

AND LET GOD COME TO YOU

TODAY.

BE EXPECTING AN ANSWER,

EXPECTING A MIRACLE, THAT

HE WATCHES OVER HIS WORD

TO PERFORM IT.

SO LET'S PRAY.

LET'S BELIEVE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, WHEN

TWO OR MORE AGREE TOUCHING

ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE

DONE.

SO LET'S DO THAT.

IN AN ACT OF FAITH, TOUCH

THAT AREA OF THE BODY.

LAY HANDS ON IT.

AND WE'RE GOING O PRA TO PRAY

AND YOU BELIEVE.

LORD, WE LIFT THE NEEDS OF

THE AUDIENCE TO YOU, AND

AS PEOPLE ARE LAYING HANDS

ON THAT AREA OF THE BODY

THAT NEEDS HEALING, FAITH

IS RISING TO YOU.

FAITH, YOU ALWAYS RESPOND

TO IT.

YOU ALWAYS SEE IT.

YOU ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR

IT.

SO IN FAITH, WE LAY HANDS

ON THAT AREA OF THE BODY.

WE SPEAK TO IT OUT LOUD.

BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME, AND BE EVERY BIT

WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'RE

ASKING PLEASE SAY ROTATOR

CUFF.

YOU HAVE A ROTATOR CUFF

INJURY IN YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER.

IT IS VERY PAINFUL FOR YOU

TO MOVE.

IT IS PAINFUL EVEN FOR YOU

TO REST.

GOD IS HEALING IT.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE IT.

HE IS ABLE TO KNIT

TOGETHER TEN DODON AND

MUSCLE.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED

NOW.

BEGIN TO MOVE THAT

SHOULDER AND REALIZE THERE

IS NO MORE PAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE, YOU

HAVE SCOLIOSIS -- YOU HAD

IT WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER,

AND YOU HAVE LIKE A BAND

THAT COMES ACROSS YOUR

BACK AND UNDER YOUR

ARMPITS.

AND IT'S SO PAINFUL.

AND GOD IS SETTING YOU

FREE NOW.

Gordon: THERE IS A

MAN WHO HAS HAD TIGHTNESS

IN YOUR CHEST, AND GOD IS

RESTORING YOU RIGHT NOW.

HE IS TAKING FEAR OFF OF

YOU NOW.

HE IS ABLE TO RESTORE.

HE IS ABLE TO HEAL.

NO MORE HEART CONDITION.

NO MORE PROBLEMS.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN HEALED,

GIVE US A CALL AND LET US

KNOW.

WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR GOOD

TESTIMONY WITH THE WORLD.

1-800-700-7000.

HERE IS A WORD FROM

JEREMIAH: "FOR I WILL

RESTORE HEALTH TO YOU AND

HEAL YOU OF YOUR WOUNDS,

SAYS THE LORD."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
