The 700 Club - July 3, 2017

The only thing more life-threatening than a teenager’s cancer diagnosis is the prescribed treatment. Plus, fronting a rock band is a dream come true until drug addiction makes it a nightmare. Read Transcript


TODAY, A YOUNG MAN FACES

CANCER

FOR A SECOND TIME.

EVERYWHERE AND GROWING.

THE DIAGNOSIS?

HE WILL DIE IMMEDIATELY.

I'M GOING FOR IT EVEN

THOUGH IT

KILLS ME.

PLUS THE LEAD SINGER FROM

THE BAND

OUTSPOKEN, BOTH ON STAGE AND

OFF.

THAT WAS TO BE ALL AND

END ALL.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB". *

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE

"700 CLUB".

FOR TODAY'S STOP STORIES,

LET'S GO TO

THE CBN NEWSROOM.

Efrem: TRUMP'S TWITTER

ATTACK HAS

BEEN DOMINATING THE DAYS

AHEAD. BUT

STILL PUSHING AHEAD WITH THE

PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN AGENDA

WITH

REPLACING OBAMACARE.

WE HAVE THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

DESPITE LAST WEEK'S SET

BACKS,

SENATOR REPUBLICANS ARE

LOOKING TO

REPLACE PRESIDENT BARACK

OBAMA

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.

SOME ARE WORKING TO REPEAL

IT NOW.

WE DON'T REPEAL THE

REGULATIONS,

WE DON'T REPEAL THE

SUBSIDIES. NOW

THE REPUBLICANS ARE SAYING

WE NEED TO

REPEAL THE TAXES. WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN

IT WAS ALL FOR REPEALING

OBAMACARE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP AGREED

RETWEETING IF

THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT IT

NOW, THEY

SHOULD REPEAL IMMEDIATELY.

BUT IT WAS OVERSHADOWED BY

THE SMACK

DOWN OF THE MEDIA.

ON SUNDAY TRUMP TWEETED

THIS VIDEO

OF AN OLD WWE MATCH. IN IT

THE

PRESIDENT TAKES DOWN A

FIGURE WITH AN

CNN LOGO. NOW MANY ARE

CALLING THE

TWEET INCENDIARY CALLING

VIOLENCE

WITH REPORTER'S AND THE

CRITICS ARE

GOING AT IT AS WELL. FORMER

CONGRESSMAN ADAM SCHIFF,

WHERE WILL

HIS DOWNWARD SPIRAL TAKE US.

AND THE MOTTO IS NOT THE

ISSUE,

IT'S THE CRUEL PRESIDENTIAL

CONTENT.

BUT THE HOMELAND SECURITY

SECURITY

ADVISOR DISAGREES.

I HOPE THEY DON'T

PERCEIVE THAT AS

A THREAT.

FAKE MEDIA IS TRYING TO

SILENCE

US. BUT WE WILL NOT LET

THEM.

HE POINTED OUT HIS

ADMINISTRATION'S STRIVE WHEN

IT COMES

TO THE VA AND SPOKE ABOUT

AMERICAN

HISTORY.

ABOVE ALL ELSE WE KNOW

THIS, IN

AMERICA, WE DON'T WORSHIP

GOVERNMENT.

WE WORSHIP GOD..

LOOKING AHEAD THE

PRESIDENT HAS A

VERY BUSY WEEK AS HE AWAITS

A LONG

MEETING WITH THE RUSSIAN

PRESIDENT

VLADIMIR PUTIN.

HEATHER SELLS REPORTING FOR

WASHINGTON NEWS.

Efrem: A RULE FROM

PREVENTING

PASTORS ENDORSING BILLS THAT

WOULD

DENY TO ENFORCE THIS

63-YEAR-OLD RULE

KNOWN AS THE JOHNSTON

AMENDMENT. SOME

AMERICANS SAY IT COMES TO

CLOSE TO

CHURCH AND STATE. BUT THAT

IT'S

UNEVENLY ENFORCED AND SOME

DEMOCRATS

IN THE AREAS OF IN SUPPORT

OF SOME OF

THE CANDIDATES EVEN FROM THE

PULPIT.

THIS WILL BE ADDRESSED BY

THE

APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE

AFTER THE

RECESS IN JULY.

> THE STATE OF FLORIDA

HAS DECIDED

TO KEEP AN HISTORICAL CROSS

FROM

BEING TAKEN DOWN SINCE 1941

FROM

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT TO

SUNRISE

SERVICE AND SOME SAY IT

VIOLATES THE

CONSTITUTION.

SOME WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE

CROSS STAY

PUT RALLIED AROUND IT LAST

WEEK.

ALMOST ANNUALLY, CROSSES

WERE

ERECTED AT THIS SITE.

SUNRISE SERVICES WERE HELD

HERE AND

THOUSANDS PARTICIPATED IN

TERMS OF

THE CHAPLAINS GIVING THE

MESSAGE. IN

ONE FORM OR ANOTHER IT'S

BEEN AT THIS

LOCATION SINCE 1941 SHOWING

GREAT

SIGNIFICANCE THAT EVEN OUR

FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT WAS ERECTING

CROSSES ON

PUBLIC PROPERTY.

PENSACOLA MAYOR TOLD US

THE

CONSTITUTION DOES NOT

REQUIRE US TO

REWRITE THE HISTORY JUST

BECAUSE IT'S

RELIGIOUS.

IT IS AGREED TO TAKE ON THE

CITY'S

APPEAL AT NO CHARGE.

THOSE ARE TODAY'S TOP

STORIES FROM

CBN NEWS. GORDON AND TERRY

WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK.

RIGHT BACK.

Gordon: CHARLIE McAFEE IS

AN ARTIST

-- MACKESY IS AN ARTIST

THAT WAS

ONCE AN ATHEIST.

CHARLIE MACKESY WAS A KNOWN

ARTIST

SELLING TO WHOOPIE GOLDBERG

AND

STING.

WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER

THIS

ARTISTIC ABILITY.

I THINK I NEEDED A REASON

THE

DRAW.

HE FOUND THAT REASON IN A

LONDON

PARK. AN ATHEIST AT THE TIME

HE SAYS

HE HAD A FEELING THAT THERE

MUST BE

MORE TO THIS THAN MEETS THE

EYE.

JESUS CHRIST TOOK ME TO A

JOURNEY

TO FIND PEOPLE REALLY

BEAUTIFUL WHICH

WAS HOW MY ART BEGAN.

HE TELLS ME, LOOK, HOW

BEAUTIFUL IS

THAT GUY SITTING ON THE

BENCH AND I

HAVE NEVER NOTICED IT

BEFORE.

IN THE RETURN OF THE

PRODIGAL SON,

HE CAPTURES THAT.

IT'S LOCATED HERE IN ONE OF

THE MOST

INFLUENTIAL CHURCHES IN THE

CHURCHES

OF ENGLAND.

MACKESY IS A POPULAR SPEAKER

THIS

CHURCH.

MACKESY IS A LEADER.

THE SPIRIT ON THIS.

HE CAN BE A BIT

UNORTHODOX WHEN HE

DESCRIBES HEARING A GOSPEL

SONG FOR

THE FIRST TIME AND BEING ON

A

PORTABLE TOILET WHERE HE

STOOD ON HIS

FEET TO AVOID THE OVERFLOW.

THIS SONG

MOVED HIM TO TEARS.

I'M VERY HUMBLED.

VERY UNPRETENTIOUS.

I WAS NOT FEELING IT.

WHILE THE MACKESY STORIES

MAY NOT

BE FOR THE FAINT AT HEART.

BUT THE DISCIPLES COULD ALSO

BE

DESCRIBED AS OBJECTIONABLE.

I REALIZED THEY WERE

UNRELIGIOUS

PEOPLE AND WOULDN'T BE THAT

WELL

DOCUMENTED IN CHURCH.

I THOUGHT COMING TO

CHURCH BE

NICE, DON'T USE THE F WORD

AND YOU

WILL BE ACCEPTED IN LIFE. IF

YOU WANT

TO BELONG, BE A CERTAIN WAY.

AND JESUS SAYS YOU ARE LOVED

AS YOU

ARE COVERED IN WHATEVER IT

IS INSIDE

OR OUT.

I THINK HE'S THE PRIMARY

EVANGELIST IN THE UK AT THE

MOMENT.

I WOULD RATHER TAKE CHARLIE

THAN

ANYONE OTHER IN THE UK.

HE WASN'T JOKING.

THAT'S COMPLETELY

RIDICULOUS.

THIS ALL COMES AS A SHOCK

TO

MACKESY WHICH IS

UNBELIEVABLE GIVEN

HIS LIFE STORY.

I HATED IT.

ABOUT GOD I DIDN'T LIKE.

HOW WOULD YOU YOU HAVE

DESCRIBED

OR DEFINED A CHRISTIAN?

SOMEONE WHO PRETENDS TO

BE GOOD

AND JUDGES YOU AND BELIEVES

IN AN

INVISIBLE FRIEND THAT THEY

CREATE.

AFTER THAT STRANGE YET

PROFOUND

ENCOUNTER WITH OH HAPPY DAY,

MACKESY

MOVED TOO NEW ORLEANS AND

IMMERSING

HIMSELF WITH BLACK GOSPEL

MUSIC.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE AND SO

FULL OF

LIFE. LOOK AT THESE PEOPLE.

LOOK AT

WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

LOOK AT WHAT IT DOES TO

THEM.

HE USES MUSIC TO

INTRODUCE PEOPLE

TO GOD. FOR A FRIEND WHO

STRUGGLED

WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER.

THEY DON'T REALLY CARRY

ANY

MEANING AT ALL.

TO BE HELD AS YOU ALWAYS

WANTED.

THIS IS WHAT GOD IS LIKE.

MACKESY'S ART IS ALSO A

RECORD OF

GOD'S PRESENCE IN HIS OWN

LIFE.

I REALLY WANTED TO PLAY

THE PIANO.

FOR ME TO REPRESENT THE

VOICE OF GOD

SAYING I'M WITH YOU, I LOVE

YOU.

WE'LL DO THAT TOGETHER. I

WILL HELP

YOU WITH THIS. YOU ARE NOT

ALONE.

THIS PAINTING SIMPLY

TITLED

"KNOWN".

IT LASTED 11 SECONDS .

YOU KNOW

YOU ARE LOVED. YOU FULLY

KNOWN. YOU

DON'T HAVE TO PARENT TO BE

ANYTHING.

JOHN JESSUP.

CBN NEWS, LONDON.

WONDERFUL MESSAGE.

Gordon: YOU DON'T HAVE TO

PRETEND

TO BE ANYTHING. JUST BE

YOURSELF AND

BELOVED.

WHAT A WONDERFUL STORY.

ANDRE CROUCH

WROTE THAT SONG, "OH HAPPY

DAY" AND

HERE IT CONTINUES ON.

Terry: REMARKABLE STORY

AND GIFTED

WOW.

UP NEXT, A MAN WITH A CANCER

DISEASE

SEE'S IT RETURN WITH A

VENGEANCE.

IT WAS IN MY BACK, IN MY

LUNGS,

EVERYWHERE IT WAS GROWING.

SEE WHAT DOCTORS DESCRIBE

ONLY AS

MIRACULOUS.

MIRACULOUS.

Terry: JORDAN LAWMAN WAS

JUST 17

WHEN HE BEAT MELANOMA. HE IS

23 AND

IT WAS BACK AND DOCTORS

WOULD DECIDE

HE WOULD DIE IN A FEW DAYS.

YOU HEAR THE KNOCK AT THE

DOOR AND

YOU HEAR THE DOCTOR COMING

IN AND YOU

CAN TELL BY THE LOOK ON HIS

FACE IT

ISN'T GOING TO BE GOOD.

IT HAS BEEN 6 YEARS SINCE

JORDAN

LAWHEAD HAD SURGERY TO

REMOVE THE

MELANOMA. AND THIS TIME HE

LEARNED

THE CANCER HAD RETURNED IN

HIS BRAIN.

IT WAS IN MY BACK, IN MY

LUNGS,

EVERYWHERE AND GROWING.

THE DOCTORS AT THE

MEDICAL CENTER

GAVE JORDAN A FEW MONTHS TO

LIVE.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL WHEN

YOUR HEART

IS RACING, YOUR MIND IS

RACING, YOU

FEEL BROKEN, COMPLETELY

BROKEN AND

DEVASTATED AND JUST REACHING

FOR A

LEVER AND WHOEVER YOU CAN

YOU ARE

REACHING FOR IS BROKEN TOO.

WHY HIM, LORD? WHY NOT

ME? I

WOULD RATHER TAKE HIS PLACE

AND DEAL

WITH ALL THE SUFFERING AND

THE PAIN

AND AGONY AND ALL OF THAT

RATHER THAN

HAVE HIM GO THROUGH IT.

DOCTORS IMMEDIATELY

STARTED

RADIATION TO SHRINK THE

TUMOR IN

JORDAN'S BRAIN.

THEY ALSO PERFORMED TWO

EMERGENCY

SURGERIES FROM HIS BOWEL AND

APPENDIX.

AND THEN DOCTORS DISCOVERED

A FAST

GROWING TUMOR IN HIS NECK.

THEY HAVE TO REMOVE THE

WINDPIPE

AND HE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO

BREATHE

AND WOULD DIE IMMEDIATELY.

DOCTORS HOPED TO INSTALL

A TUBE

THAT COULD BE FATAL.

THEY WERE PUSHED INTO A

RISKY

TREATMENT UNDER EVEN RISKIER

CIRCUMSTANCES. WE HAVE

PROBABLY 2

DAYS LEFT TO DO IT OR NOT TO

DO IT AT

ALL.

ANYWAY, IN THAT MOMENT, I

HAD TO

DECIDE TO BELIEVE THAT GOD

HAS MADE

US AS INDIVIDUALS AND NOT

STATISTICS.

JORDAN AND HIS PARENTS

HAD BEEN

FERVENTLY PRAYING FOR HIS

RECOVERY

AND AS THIS SPREAD, JORDAN

HAD PEOPLE

PRAYING FOR HIM FROM ALL

OVER THE

WORLD.

I HAD PEOPLE PRAYING FOR

ME AND I

WAS FORTUNATE TO HEAR FROM

THEM. I

HAD OLD PEOPLE PRAYING FOR

ME, KIDS

PRAYING FOR ME. I HAD

STRANGERS

WRITING ME, TELLING ME,

TEXTING ME

THAT THEY WERE PRAYING

ASKING GOD TO

INTERVENE.

I PRAYED FOR HOURS. I

PRAYED FOR

OUR LORD TO HAVE MERCY AND

EVERYTHING

I HAD. EVERY OUT OF OUR

FAITH WAS FOR

THIS BOY TO BE RESCUED.

THE TUMOR BEGAN TO SHRINK

AFTER

THE FIRST TREATMENT TAKING

JORDAN OUT

OF IMMEDIATE DANGER.

IT WAS SURPRISING TO ME.

IT WAS

SURPRISING TO MY FAMILY, AND

IT WAS

SURPRISING TO THE DOCTORS.

AND WHERE

EVERYBODY WAS SURPRISED AND

FEELING

POSITIVE AND EXCITED

SLIGHTLY HOLDING

THEIR BREATH, WE WERE ALL

LIKE, LET'S

KEEP GOING, LET'S KEEP

FIGHTING.

GIVE ME ANOTHER DOSE OF THAT

HORRIBLE

STUFF BECAUSE IT'S WORKING.

I'M GOING

FOR IT EVEN IF IT KILLS ME.

JORDAN ENDURED THREE MORE

ROUNDS

AND HE WAS ONCE AGAIN

WAITING FOR THE

DOCTOR'S KNOCK ON THE DOOR.

HE SAID THIS IN HIS

WORDS, JORDAN

HAS HAD A COMPLETE RESPONSE.

THE HEARTBREAK THAT WE

TALKED ABOUT,

THE PAIN, THE PHYSICAL PAIN

WAS

REDEEMED.

IT WAS A CONFIRMED COMPLETE

RESPONSE

TO THE DRUG, TO THE POWER OF

GOD

INTERVENING BY ALL THE

PEOPLE

PRAYING.

IT'S BEEN 8 YEARS SINCE

JORDAN WAS

GIVEN 6 MONTHS TO LIVE.

WITH ONLY 2% RECOVERY RATE

FOR THESE

CASES, DOCTORS SAY JORDAN

BEAT THE

ODDS.

HE IS NOW A 31-YEAR-OLD

MAN WITH

NO CANCER IN HIS BRAIN OR

BODY.

TODAY JORDAN IS A

MUSICIAN AND

RUNS A WEBSITE.

BUT MOST OF ALL, HE CREDITS

HIS GOD

OF MERCY.

HE HAS EMPOWERED ME TO

SEE HIM AS

HE WAS AND AS I AM. AND I

HAVE TO BE

JOYFULLY DEPENDENT ON HIS

MERCY AT

ALL TIMES, THAT I'M NOT IN

CONTROL,

THAT HE IS. WHEN I PUT MY

TRUST IN

HIM WITH EVERY PART OF MY

LIFE

WHETHER IT'S MY HEALTH, MY

JOY AND

CAREER AND PLANS AND MONEY

AND ALL OF

THAT, THAT I CAN BE JOYFULLY

DEPENDENT ON HIM BECAUSE HE

IS

MERCIFUL AND I HAVE THE

SCARS TO

PROVE IT.

Terry: THAT STORY CLEARLY

OUTLINES

THAT IT IS NOT AN EASY THING

TO BE

RECOGNIZED THAT YOU ARE

TOTALLY

DEPENDENT ON HIM, BUT THAT

SCENARIO

BROUGHT HIM TO A PLACE WHERE

HE CAN

DO THAT JOYFULLY TRUSTING

THE MERCY

AND THE GRACE AND LOVE OF

GOD FOR ALL

THINGS.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU NOW.

WE KNOW

SOME OF YOU ARE FACED WITH

SOME

DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES.

YOU HAVE ONE GORDON?

Gordon: I HAVE ONE FROM

BOB. TERRY

DID PRAY ABOUT SOMEONE WHO

HAD

VERTIGO ABOUT A YEAR AGO. HE

SAYS I

HAVE SUFFERED FROM VERTIGO

AND THERE

IS NO KNOWN CURE.

I HAVE HAD TERRIBLE FLARE

UPS.

CLAIMING TERRY'S WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE,

THE CONDITION IS RESOLVED.

THANKS BE

TO GOD.

Terry: HERE IS ONE FROM

GLORIA. ON

APRIL 4TH, THIS YEAR, SHE

WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM IN HER

OFFICE

IN NIGERIA. GORDON, YOU GAVE

THE WORD

OF KNOWLEDGE AND NAMED HER

NAME AND

EXACT AGE.

SHE SAID WHEN I HEARD GORDON

MENTIONED MY NAME, NEVER HAS

THIS

PAIN APPEARED.

BE JOYFUL AND JUST

REJOICE BEFORE

HIM AND SAY THIS IS THE DAY

THE LORD

HAS MADE. IF YOU ARE IN

PAIN, DON'T

REJOICE OVER THE SICKNESS OR

PAIN.

GOD DOESN'T ASK YOU TO DO

THAT.

REJOICE OVER WHAT HE'S ABOUT

TO DO.

REJOICE THAT HE STANDS

BEFORE HIS

WORD TO PERFORM IT.

REJOICE THAT HE'S GIVEN YOU

LIFE AND

BREATH AND GIVEN YOU

UNBELIEVABLE

GIFTS FROM HEAVEN. REJOICE

IN THAT

AND WATCH HIM WORK. WATCH

THAT HE

WANTS TO KNOW YOU INTIMATELY

AND HE

HASN'T CREATED THINGS THAT

HE'LL

ABANDON YOU. THAT'S NOT GOD.

GOD WANTS TO BE WITH YOU AND

BE YOUR

ALL IN ALL.

SO, WE ARE GOING TO CLAIM A

WONDERFUL

VERSE. WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE

TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT SHALL

BE DONE

TO THEM BY MY FATHER IN

HEAVEN. THESE

ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS AND

YOU CAN

TRUST HIM. WHY DID GOD DO

THIS, SO

HIS SON WOULD BE GLORIFIED.

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL. IT'S

NOT HOW

MUCH YOU DO, WHAT YOUR

BARGAIN IS

WITH GOD.

NO, IT'S SO THAT JESUS WOULD

BE

GLORIFIED. LET'S PRAY AND

LET'S

BELIEVE AND LET GOD DO WHAT

GOD HAS

PROMISED TO DO.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE COME TOGETHER RIGHT

NOW AND

WE AGREE TOUCHING THESE

ILLNESSES,

THIS PAIN. AS PEOPLE REACH

OUT AND

LAY HANDS ON THE AREA OF THE

BODY

THAT NEEDS HEALING, WE JOIN

WITH THEM

AND TOGETHER WE SAY OUT LOUD

TO IT,

BE HEALED NOW AND BE EVERY

BIT WHOLE

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

RECEIVE YOUR

MIRACLE NOW FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS'

NAME.

FATHER, SOMEONE NAMED ANDY.

YOU HAVE A TUMOR IN THE

UPPER RIGHT

HAND PORTION OF YOUR BRAIN

AND IT'S

SWELLING AND YOU'VE GOT

SEVERE PAIN.

RIGHT NOW, GOD IS TOUCHING

THAT.

YOU JUST FELT SOMETHING LIKE

OIL JUST

TINGELING OIL FLOW

OVER-THE-TOP OF

YOUR HEAD TO YOUR BODY.

THAT TUMOR IS SHRINKING NOW

IN THE

NAME OF JESUS. JUST REJOICE

OVER WHAT

GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE, YOUR

NAME IS

NOT ANDY BUT ANGIE. THERE IS

MANY OF

YOU WHO ARE UNDER THIS CLOUD

OF

DARKNESS.

IT'S SO DARK FOR YOU THAT

YOU CAN'T

EVEN COME TO THE PLACE OF A

FACE AND

TRUSTING AGAIN. RIGHT NOW IN

JESUS

NAME BE SET FREE FROM THAT

AS LIGHT

POURS INTO YOUR SPIRIT, JUST

RECEIVE

THE JOY OF YOUR SALVATION.

LIFTS YOUR

HANDS UP AND PRAISE HIM.

IT'S GONE,

IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS SOMEONE

WITH A

GROWTH OR INFECTION AND IT'S

ALL

SWOLLEN AND SEEMS TO BE

WRAPPED

AROUND YOUR EAR. GOD IS

HEALING THAT

RIGHT NOW? JESUS' NAME.

WHAT YOU

COOPERATE DO -- COULDN'T DO

BEFORE,

DO IT NOW. REALIZE IT'S ALL

BEEN

TAKEN CARE OF. YOUR EAR NOW

OPEN AND

YOU CAN HEAR OUT OF IT.

BE RESTORED AND BE MADE

WHOLE.

SOMEONE HAS A VERTEBRAE IN

YOUR SPINE

AND YOU ARE LOSING CALCIUM

AND THE

CUSHION BETWEEN THE VERTEBRA

AND IN

CONSTANT PAIN. GOD IS ABLE

TO

RESTORE, HE'S ABLE TO

RESTORE, HE'S

RESTORING BONE TO YOU RIGHT

NOW. HE

IS RESTORING CARTILAGE TO

YOU.

HE IS RESTORING ALL THE

THINGS YOU

NEED TO BE PAIN FREE IN

JESUS' NAME.

NOW, DO WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE.

YOU COULDN'T ROTATE THAT

SPINE

WITHOUT PAIN, DO IT NOW.

SEE WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR

YOU. HE IS

RELEASING IT NOW.

SOMEONE IN THE RIGHT

SHOULDER

INABILITY TO MOVE YOUR RIGHT

ARM.

GO AHEAD AND MOVE IT.

THAT PAIN IS RELEASED AND

GONE NOW.

Terry: SOMEONE IS HAVING

TROUBLE

WITH THEIR SPINE SOMETHING

LIKE A

SNAKE SLITHERING. THAT PAIN

IS GONE

NOW. DO WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Gordon: DO WHAT YOU HAVE

DONE, WE

OF JESUS.

Terry: HE WAS A RISING

ROCK STAR

TOTALLY HOOKED ON FAME.

THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE OUT

THERE AND THEY TURN THE

LIGHTS OFF

AND I HEAR THE ROAR.

I WAS BEING WORSHIPPED AND I

LOVED

THAT.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: IN A REMOTE VILLAGE

IN

CHINA, AN ELDERLY WIDOW AND

BOY HAVE

FORMED A STRONG FAMILY BOND

EVEN

THOUGH THEY ARE NOT RELATE D

AT ALL.

BUT NOT BEFORE LONG THEIR

LIVES WERE

AT DANGER BECAUSE OF LACK OF

WATER.

SHE FELT LIKE GIVING UP

BUT YET

SHE REACHED OUT TO HIM

BECAUSE HIS

PARENTS WERE MOSTLY OUT.

I LOVE MOMMA.

SHE HELPED ME AND MOMMA HAS

SUCH A

GOOD HEART.

HELPING HIM GAVE ME A

PURPOSE IN

MY OLDER YEARS.

MOMMA JIKE WALKED 3 MILES

FOR

WATER.

IT WASN'T EVEN CLEAN

ACTUALLY. IT

WAS THE ONLY AND BEST WATER

SOURCE WE

HAD.

1 DAY, MOMMA JAKE TRIED

TO FETCH

MORE WATER THAN NORMAL.

THE GROUND WAS SLICK FROM

SUMMER RAIN

AND SHE SLIPPED.

I COULD BARELY BREATHE

AND I

THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE.

HE FOUND HER ON THE

GROUND.

I TRIED TO GET HER TO

STAND UP BUT

SHE COULD NOT MOVE SO I RAN

BACK TO

THE VILLAGE FOR HELP. I

STARTED

CRYING IN A HORRIBLE CRY FOR

MY MOM.

I MIGHT LOSE HER FOREVER.

MOMMA JIKE'S SPRAINED HER

BACK AND

WAS IN BED FOR 2 MONTHS.

DURING THAT

TIME, HE FETCHED FOR WATER.

DURING THAT TIME, I

WANTED TO QUIT

BUT THEN I REMEMBER HOW MUCH

MOMMA

HELPED ME.

IT WAS MY CHANCE TO REPAY

HER LOVE

WITH MY LOVE AND BE SELFLESS

LIKE SHE

WAS.

BUT THE WATER HE BROUGHT

BACK WAS

STILL FILTHY.

WHEN CBN HEARD ABOUT THE

SITUATION,

WE QUICKLY SET UP A CLEAN

WATER

SYSTEM FOR MOMMA JIKE'S

VILLAGE. WE

BUILT A CISTERN THAT LAID

PIPES TO

EVERYONE'S HOMES. TODAY

THERE IS

WATER RIGHT AT MOMMA JIKE'S

HOUSE.

IT'S SO CLEAN AND THERE

IS SO MUCH

OF IT. NOW MOMMA WILL NEVER

FALL DOWN

CARRYING WATER AGAIN. WE CAN

SPEND

MORE TIME TOGETHER. IT IS

CBN WHO

MADE THIS ALL HAPPEN.

YOU CARED FOR ME AND GAVE

ME HOPE.

I NEVER THOUGHT THERE WERE

PEOPLE AS

KIND AS YOU. THANK YOU FOR

YOUR

SELFLESS LOVE.

Terry: THANK YOU, CBN

PARTNERS, YOU

ARE MAKING MIRACLES HAPPEN

IN THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE AROUND THE

WORLD.

THIS IS A MIRACLE FOR THIS

WOMAN AND

THIS YOUNG BOY AND THE

ENTIRE

VILLAGE. I LOVE HOW SHE SAYS

ALL HAVE

TO DO IS TURN ON THE TAP.

WE SAY THANK YOU. DRILLING

WELLS,

PROVIDING CLEAN DRINKING

WATER, THAT

IS JUST ONE OF THE THINGS

CBN DOES

AROUND THE WORLD FOR PEOPLE

IN NEED.

IT ALL HAPPENS BECAUSE

Gordon: UP NEXT, HE'S A

SINGER IN A

ROCK 'N ROLL BAND.

ALL I CARED ABOUT WAS

GETTING THAT

CHUNK OF MONEY TO PUT IN

THAT

DEALER'S HAND.

SEE HOW LIFE SPEAKS TO

THIS YOUNG

MAN JUST AS HE IS ABOUT TO

SLIT HIS

WRIST.

WRIST.

Gordon: DAVID FRAZIER

THRIVED ON

SINGING WITH HIS BAND

OUTSPOKEN. HE

CRAVED HIS FANS LIKE A DRUG.

THEN ONE

NIGHT, DAVID TRY THE CRACK

COCAINE.

AND SUDDENLY PERFORMING ON

STAGE

PALED IN COMPARISON.

THERE IS 15,000 PEOPLE

OUT THERE

AND THEY TURN THE LIGHTS OFF

AND YOU

HEAR THE ROAR, AND YOU WALK

OUT ON

THAT STAGE.

THAT RIGHT THERE, WAS JUST

THE BE ALL

AND END ALL AND IT'S

EVERYTHING.

WITH A HIT SINGLE AND

LUCRATIVE

HIT, DAVID WAS ON THE START

OF

STARDOM AND THEN SOMETHING

LED HIM ON

THE WRONG PATH.

DAVID WAS MOLESTED AS A

YOUNG BOY.

IT WAS JUST DIFFICULT

INSIDE. IT

WAS A KIND OF PAIN YOU

COULDN'T PUT

INTO WORDS.

HE COULDN'T UNDERSTAND

IT.

IT WAS THE PLEASURE OF

OUTLETS.

LATER HE BECAME BITTER

TOWARDS HIS

FAMILY AND GOD.

I DON'T KNOW WHY IS THIS

HAPPENING, WHY DO I FEEL

THIS WAY,

WHY DO I FEEL SO ANGRY AND

AFRAID.

WHY DOES IT FEEL LIKE I'M

BEING

CRUSHED UNDER THE WEIGHT OF

GUILT.

IN HIGH SCHOOL HE USED

POT TO MASK

HIS SENSE OF SHAME AND ALSO

THROUGH

HIMSELF INTO ACTIVITIES

ESPECIALLY

MUSIC TO MAKE SURE NO ONE

KNEW HIS

SECRET OR HIS PAIN.

IF I'M GOING TO DO IT I'M

GOING TO

BE BEST AT IT SO PEOPLE

WON'T KNOW

FROM THE OUTSIDE AND THEY

WON'T SEE

THE REAL.

AFTER A SHORT STINT IN

THE

MARINES, DAVID FORMED A

GROUP CALLED

OUTSPOKEN.

AND THEN DAVID THRIVED ON

IT.

I KNEW I WASN'T WORTH IT.

WHEN THEY WOULD SEE ME THEY

WOULD

WORSHIP ME.

WHEN I WOULD GO ON THE

ROAD, THERE

WAS NO PRAISE.

I WOULD FALL IN THIS DEEP

DESPAIR. I

WOULD SIT THERE IN MY

APARTMENT IN

JUST PURE DEPRESSION. AND

HEY, I HAVE

A GOOD IDEA.

LET'S GET SOME DRUGS.

EVENTUALLY DAVID TRIED

CRACK

COCAINE. IT GAVE HIM A HIGH

HE HAD

NEVER EXPERIENCED. SOON IT

WAS

EVERYTHING THAT MATTERED.

ALL I WOULD LOOK FORWARD

TO WAS

GETTING THAT CHUNK OF MONEY

TO GIVE

HIM.

IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS,

HE WAS IN

AND OUT OF CRACK HOUSES.

IT WAS ABSOLUTE HELL ON

EARTH AND

I WANTED TO STAY THERE

BECAUSE COMING

BACK TO REALITY WAS PAINFUL.

SEVERAL TIMES HE TRIED TO

GET

CLEAN AND GOING TO CHURCH.

BUT HE COULDN'T GET AWAY

FROM THE MAN

HE HAD BECOME.

JUST AN EMPTY SHELL, NO

PURPOSE,

NO MEANING. WHAT AM I HERE

FOR? WHAT

AM I DOING?

ONE DAY WHILE TRYING TO

SCORE SOME

DRUGS, DAVID WAS MUGGED.

LEFT ME THERE ON THE

STREET.

THEY SLASHED MY TIRES.

SO I'M STUCK WITH NO MONEY

AND I WAS

SO OUT OF MY MIND I COULDN'T

EVEN

FUNCTION.

DAVID LOST ALL HOPE.

SCRAPING UP

SOME LOOSE CHANGE, HE BOUGHT

A BOTTLE

OF BEER, AFTER HE DRANK IT,

HE BROKE

THE BOTTLE INTENDING TO USE

THE

JAGGED EDGES TO END HIS LIFE.

WHILE I HAD THIS OVER MY

WRIST, I

HEARD THE LORD SPEAK TO ME.

HE SAID GET OUT OF YOUR CAR

AND CALL

YOUR MOM RIGHT NOW.

SOMETHING CAME

OVER ME WHERE I DIDN'T HAVE

A CHOICE.

LIKE I WAS BEING MOVED.

DAVID SAYS AT LEAST HE

FELT PEACE.

THERE WAS HOPE FOR THE

FIRST TIME

IN MY LIFE AND I KNEW WHAT

THE HOPE

WAS. IT'S JESUS.

SHORTLY AFTER HIS BROTHER

PICKED

HIM UP AND THE NEXT DAY, HIS

FAMILY

GOT HIM TO A REHAB FACILITY.

HE SAYS

THE DESIRE FOR DRUGS WENT

AWAY

IMMEDIATELY BUT HE STILL HAD

TO FACE

THE TRUTH.

EVENTUALLY I JUST BROKE

BECAUSE IT

WAS DIFFICULT TO FACE THE

PROBLEM.

IT WAS NOT THE DRUGS, WHICH

WAS NOT

THE PORNOGRAPHY, IT WAS NOT

EVEN

MUSIC, IT WAS ME.

I WAS THE PROBLEM.

DAVID GAVE HIS LIFE AND

DEVOTION

TO GOD.

I UNDERSTOOD THAT JESUS

WAS GOD.

AND THAT HE DIED FOR ME.

AND I UNDERSTOOD THAT HE

WASN'T JUST

ENOUGH, HE WAS MORE THAN

ENOUGH.

AND ALL OF THAT MADNESS, HE

PURSUED

ME.

HE DIDN'T LET ME GO.

I SAY I CAN WORSHIP A GOD

LIKE THAT

AND UNDERSTOOD THAT THE GOD

HE WAS

THAT HE IS NOT THE GOD HE

REALLY IS.

HE COVER CAME ADDICTION

TO

PORNOGRAPHY AND HIS GUILT.

HE MARRIED IN 2009 AND NOW

LEADS AN

ONLINE BIBLE GROUP AND

COUNSELS THOSE

WITH ADDICTION.

HE IS STILL THERE AND HE

PURSUED

ME THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH.

Gordon: HE IS PURSUING

YOU. IF YOU

ARE WATCHING THIS, MAYBE YOU

ARE

LIVING DAVID'S STORY OR

MAYBE A

DIFFERENT ONE.

BUT YOU CREATED SOMEONE THAT

YOU LOOK

AT IN THE MIRROR AND SAY,

WHO ARE

YOU? YOU ARE ASKING THE

SAME

QUESTIONS THAT DAVID ASKED.

WHAT'S MY PURPOSE? WHAT AM

I DOING?

WHY CAN'T I STOP DOING THESE

THINGS?

WHY CAN'T I JUST LEAVE IT?

WHY CAN'T

I BECOME WHO I WANT TO BE?

DAVID'S WONDERFUL

REVELATION, HE WAS

THE PROBLEM.

YOU KNOW, PORNOGRAPHY WASN'T

THE

PROBLEM, CRACK COCAINE

WASN'T THE

PROBLEM. HE WAS THE PROBLEM.

THOSE ARE JUST SYMPTOMS OF A

DEEP

UNDERLYING PROBLEM.

HE DIDN'T LIKE HIMSELF.

HE DIDN'T LIKE WHAT HE HAD

BECOME. HE

DIDN'T LIKE WHAT HAPPENED TO

HIM WHEN

HE WAS A YOUNG BOY. HE

DIDN'T LIKE

ANY OF THAT.

AND WHAT HE FINALLY FOUND

WAS A

SAVIOR WHO WAS ABLE TO

CHANGE ALL

THAT.

AND CHANGED DAVID FROM HIS

INNERMOST

BEING AND MAKE HIM NEW AGAIN

JUST AS

IF HE HAD NEVER DONE ANY OF

THOSE

THINGS OR ANY OF THOSE

THINGS HAD

EVER HAPPENED TO HIM.

MANY GOD IS LITERALLY ABLE

TO

RECREATE YOU. BREATHE ON YOU

AGAIN

AND GIVE YOU A NEW SOUL, A

NEW

SPIRIT, A NEW HEART, A NEW

LIFE.

HOW DO YOU GET IT? WHAT

DAVID DID.

HE REACHED THE END.

AND WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU.

AND HOW DO YOU GET TO THAT

POINT?

YOU ASK FOR IT.

IT'S THAT SIMPLE.

YOU JUST ASK FOR IT IN A

VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER.

IF YOU WANT THIS.

IF YOU WANT A NEW LIFE, A

NEW

BEGINNING, BOW YOUR HEAD AND

LET'S DO

A SIMPLE PRAYER AND LET

JESUS DO ALL

THE REST. PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, THAT'S IT, SAY IT

OUT LOUD.

I WANT TO CHANGE, AND I HEAR

THAT YOU

CAN DO THAT.

I HEAR THAT YOU CAN RECREATE

ME AND

YOU CAN FORGIVE ME AND MAKE

ME NEW.

SO, JESUS, FORGIVE ME.

CLEANSE ME.

COME INTO MY HEART.

AND IF YOU DO THIS FOR ME, I

WANT TO

FOLLOW YOU ALL THE DAYS OF

MY LIFE.

HEAR MY PRAYER.

FOR I PRAY IT IN JESUS'

NAME. AMEN.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, I

ASK FOR A BAPTISM IN YOUR

LOVE. I ASK

THAT YOU WOULD JUST SURROUND

THEM

WITH YOUR PRESENCE AND YOUR

POWER AND

LET THEM KNOW THAT THEY HAVE

BEEN

DELIVERED AND SET FREE

TODAY.

DO IT, LORD, FOR WE ASK IT

IN JESUS'

NAME. AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

THERE IS

ONE THING I WANT YOU TO DO.

I WANT YOU TO GO TO THE

PHONE AND

GIVE US A CALL AND LET US

KNOW.

TOLL-FREE PHONE NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH THAT

GUY ON

TV.

WHEN YOU CALL I HAVE A FREE

PACKET

FOR YOU CALLED "A NEW DAY"

AND A

TEACHING FOR YOU. ALL YOU

HAVE TO DO

IS CALL. TOLL-FREE PHONE

NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000. WE'LL BE

RIGHT BACK

WITH MORE OF THE "700 CLUB"

RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO BRING IT

Terry: WE WANT TO BRING IT

ON WITH

ONE QUESTION THAT CAME FROM

JOHN.

HE SAYS THAT WE SHOULD FEAR

THE DEVIL

BUT SHOULD WE FEAR GOD.

Gordon: THERE IS A

TRANSLATION IN A

HEBREW WORD MEANING FEAR OF

THE LORD

IS HAVING AWE AND REVERENCE

FOR HIM

AND UNDERSTAND THAT HE IS

THE RULER

OF THE UNIVERSE AND THAT IN

HIS HAND

IS COMPLETE AND TOTAL POWER.

BUT WHEN

YOU REALIZE THAT, THERE IS

AN

AWESOMENESS TO THAT AND IT

BRINGS YOU

UP SHORT IS THE ENGLISH

PHRASE WHICH

SAYS OKAY, I BETTER STAND AT

ATTENTION HERE.

YOU KNOW, YOU ARE NOT CASUAL

WITH

THIS.

YOU DON'T TAKE IT CASUALLY.

YOU TAKE IT VERY VERY

SERIOUSLY.

AND THAT'S WHAT THAT WORD

MEANS.

SO, WHEN YOU SEE THAT, THE

FEAR OF

THE LORD IN YOUR OWN MIND

JUST

TRANSLATED THE AWE OF THE

LORD AND

HOW AWESOME HE IS.

IT'S NOT THE FEAR, THE

RATIONAL FEAR

THAT THE DEVIL PUTS ON US,

IT'S THE

AWESOMENESS OF GOD AND OUR

RESPECT

THAT JUST COMES NATURALLY

WHEN YOU

HAVE THAT. WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE

WORDS FROM ACTS 13.

"I HAVE PLACED YOU AS A

LIGHT FOR THE

GENTILES, THAT YOU MAY BRING

SALVATION TO THE END OF THE

EARTH"

(ACTS 13:47, NASB) NOOUL #

GOD BLESS

YOU. WE'LL SEE YOU SOON.
