Gordon: THE NUMBER

ONE FAN OF A TWO-TIME NBA

M.V.P.

Efrem: HAVE YOU

ALWAYS BEEN A BASKETBALL

FAN?

NO.

OH, GOSH, NOT AT ALL.

LET THEM SAY NO UNTIL THEY

SAY YES.

Gordon: PLUS, A

DEVASTATING DIAGNOSIS THAT

THIS MOM REFUSED TO

ACCEPT.

THAT'S NOT THE FUTURE I

WANTED HIM TO HAVE.

Gordon: WATCH A

MIRACLE UNFOLD.

EVERYBODY IN THE ROOM

WAS JUST LIKE -- IT WAS

AMAZING.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

> WELL, WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

LET'S GO OVER TO THE CBN

NEWSROOM FOR TODAY'S TOP

STORIES.

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS IN POLAND TODAY

ON HIS WAY TO THE SUMMIT

WITH THE INTERLEADERS.

GARY LANE HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: A WARM

WELCOME AND RED CARPET

TREATMENT FOR PRESIDENT

TRUMP AND THE FIRST LADY

AS THEY ARRIVED IN POLAND.

MAKING A STOP IN WARSAW

BEFORE THE G20 SUMMIT IN

GERMANY WAS LARGELY

SYMBOLIC.

THE PRESIDENT FIRMING UP

AN ALLIANCE OF SHARED

GOALS AND IDEALS, AND

SENDING A STRONG MESSAGE

TO GERMANY AND RUSSIA: THE

UNITED NATIONS WILL STAND

BY ITS LIKE-MINDED

FRIENDS.

ONE TOPIC OVERSHADOWED

TRUMP'S POLAND VISIT, AND

IT IS LIKELY TO DOMINATE

UP COMING DISCUSSIONS WITH

PRESIDENT PUTIN IN

GERMANY.

NORTH KOREA, AND ITS

GROWING THREAT TO THE

UNITED STATES AND ITS

ALLIES.

PRESIDENT TRUMP PUTIN

AND I CALL ON ALL NATIONS

TO PUBLIC DEMONSTRATE TO

NORTH KOREA THAT THERE ARE

CONSEQUENCES FOR THEIR

VERY, VERY BAD BEHAVIOR.

Reporter: AS

AMERICANS CELEBRATED THE

FOURTH OF JULY, KIM

JONG-UN LAUNCHED ANOTHER

MISSILE.

THIS ONE AN

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

MISSILE THAT COULD REACH

THE UNITED STATES.

ERIC GONZALES IS CBN NEWS'

NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENCE.

> CAN IT HIT HAWAII,

MAYBE THE WEST COAST?

THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

THINKING.

THEY'RE DEBATING IF IT

COULD HIT THE WEST COAST,

SUCH AT LOS ANGELES, BUT

ALASKA IS THE BIGGEST

ISSUE RIGHT NOW, AND FROM

THAT THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS

IS ANOTHER ISSUE WE HAVE

TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP CRITICIZED CHINA FOR

NOT DOING MORE TO STOP THE

MISSILE LAUNCHES AND NORTH

KOREA'S ADVANCING NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

IN FACT, THE LAUNCHED

VEHICLE USED IN TUESDAY'S

LAUNCH IS BELIEVED TO HAVE

BEEN SUPPLIED BY CHINA.

SO WHAT CAN UNITED STATES

DO TO ELIMINATE THE THREAT

TO ITS HOME LAND.

ANTHONY GERALD SAYS THE

U.S. HAS MORE OPTIONS THAN

JUST MILITARY ONES.

LET'S GO AFTER ALL OF

THE NETWORKS OF CHINESE

COMPANIES THAT ARE WORKING

WITH NORTH KOREA.

LET'S JUST DO THAT

IMMEDIATELY.

THAT WOULD START TO HAVE

AN IMPACT ON NORTH KOREA.

AT A MINIMUM, IT WOULD

START TO HURT THE REGIME.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: ACTIVISTS

GATHERED OUTSIDE THE

BRITISH EMBASSY IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR A

VIGIL DEDICATED TO CHARLIE

GARD.

A U.K. COURT TOLD HIS

PARENTS THEY COULD NOT

BRING HIM TO THE U.S. FOR

AN EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT

FOR A RARE CONDITION.

AND SAID THEIR CHILD

SHOULD DIE WITH DIGNITY

INSTEAD.

PARENTS HAVE A RIGHT TO

FIGHT FOR THEIR CHILDREN'S

LIVES.

SHOULDN'T PARENTS HAVE

THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT

IS BEST FOR THEIR

CHILDREN?

AND WITH CHARLIE, SADLY,

WE'RE SEEING THIS ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

THIS IS A GLOBAL ISSUE

PARTICULARLY IN DEVELOPED

COUNTRIES, THAT WE ARE

SEEING HOSPITALS AND

COURTS MAKE DECISIONS FOR

PARENTS.

Efrem: BOTH POPE

FRANCIS AND PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAVE OFFERED TO HELP

YOUNG CHARLIE.

> WITH SUMMER IN FULL

SWING, YOU MIGHT THINK

YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE SAFE

IN THE POOL AS LONG AS

THEY KNOW HOW TO SWIM.

BUT ONE FAMILY IS SPEAKING

OUT ABOUT THE NEED FOR

POOL SAFETY AFTER

TRAGICALLY LOSING THEIR

6-YEAR-OLD SON TO AN

UNKNOWN DANGER IN THE

POOL.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US MORE ON THIS STORY.

Reporter: POOL SEASON

IS OFFICIALLY HERE, BUT

BEFORE YOU JUMP IN THE

WATER, YOU MIGHT WANT TO

HEED SOME UNEXPECTED

WARNINGS.

WE HAD NO IDEA THAT

THIS DANGER LURKED IN OUR

OWN BACKYARD POOL.

Reporter: KAREN AND

HER HUSBAND THOUGHT THEY

HAD DONE EVERYTHING

POSSIBLE TO PROTECT THEIR

KIDS FROM DROWNING.

BUT WHEN THEIR 6-YEAR-OLD

SON ZACH'S ARM GOT CAUGHT

BY DRAIN ENTRAPMENT, THEIR

WORST FEARS CAME TO LIFE.

HIS ARM BECAME STUCK.

AND DESPITE MY HUSBAND AND

OTHER ADULTS TRYING TO

RELEASE HIM, THE SUCTION

WAS JUST TOO STRONG AND WE

COULDN'T GET HIM OUT.

Reporter: IT OCCURS

WHEN A SUCTION FROM A POOL

OR SPA DRAIN FORCEFULLY

TRAPS THE BODY, CREATING

AN EFFECT OF PUTTING YOUR

HAND AT THE END OF A

VACUUM CLEANER.

THE DRAIN CAN CREATE

BETWEEN 450 TO 900 POUNDS

OF SUCTION FORCE.

THIS SUCTION IS SO

STRONG, IT IS HUNDREDS OF

POUNDS OF PRESSURE.

SO AN ADULT CAN BECOME

STUCK AS WELL AND NOT BE

ABLE TO RELEASE HIM OR

HERSELF.

SO IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT

CHILDREN.

Reporter: AND IT'S

NOT JUST THE BODY.

HAIR CAN BECOME CAUGHT IN

A DRAIN COVER.

LIMBS CAN GET STUCK IN

DRAIN OPENINGS, AND

JEWELRY AND BATHING SUITS

CAN BECOME SNARED.

SINCE THE TRAGEDY, THEY

ARE ON A MISSION TO PREACH

WATER SAFETY THROUGH THEIR

FOUNDATION NAMED IN HONOR

OF ZACH.

BEWARE OF FLAT POOL

DRAINS.

INSTEAD, SWIM IN POOLS

WITH RAISED DRAINS OR

DRAIN COVERS.

WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT

IS IF A DRAIN COVER COMES

LOSE OR IT IS OFF, THAT

THAT POOL SHOULD BE

CLOSED.

Reporter: FEDERAL LAW

REQUIRES PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO

USE THESE SAFER MODELS,

BUT THAT ONLY ACCOUNTS FOR

2% OF THE POOLS IN THE

U.S.

THERE ARE 14 MILLION

ADDITIONAL POOLS AND SPAS

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY

THAT ARE PRIVATELY OWNED.

AND THOSE ARE GOVERNED BY

THE STATES.

Reporter: KAREN SAYS

SOME STATES HAVE STRONG

LAWS, BUT OTHERS ARE WEAK.

SHE RECENTLY CAME TO

CAPITOL HILL TO DISCUSS

WITH LAWMAKERS HOW TO MAKE

ALL POOLS SAFER FOR

SWIMMERS.

AND SHE ALSO WROTE A

CHILDREN'S BOOK WITH HER

HUSBAND THAT OUTLINES THE

"A," "B," "C," AND "D"s

OF WATER SAFETY.

CHILDREN SHOULD KNOW

HOW TO DIAL 9-1-1, AND

FAMILIES SHOULD TAKE A

C.P.R. CLASS.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

BECAUSE STATISTICS SHOW IF

C.P.R. IS ADMINISTERED

RIGHT AWAY AFTER A

DROWNING OCCURS, IT CAN

ACTUALLY SAVE LIVES.

Reporter: KAREN HOPES

SHARING HER STORY WILL

HELP PREVENT FUTURE

CHILDREN FROM DROWNING.

REPORTING FROM WASHINGTON,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, CBN

NEWS.

Efrem: THOSE ARE

TODAY'S TOP STORIES FROM

CBN NEWS.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Gordon: SETH KUR IS

ONSETH CURRY ISONE OF THE FAVORITE

PLAYERS OF THE NBA.

BUT WHEN HE IS NOT ON THE

COURT, HE CHEERS ON HIS

WIFE, WHO HAS QUITE A

SUCCESS STORY OF HER OWN.

EFREM GRAHAM INTRODUCES US

TO AISHA CURRY.

Efrem: WHEN SETH

CURRY TAKES THE COURT, HE

SEES A FAMILIAR FACE ON

THE SIDE LINE.

> HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN A

BASKETBALL FAN?

NO, NOT AT ALL.

I COME FROM A VERY ARTS

SEYFAMILY.

THE ONLY INTRODUCTION TO

SPORTS I HAD BEFORE

MEETING MY HUSBAND WAS

BUFFALO BILLS FOOTBALL

TEAM AND DOUG'S FLUTIE

FLAKES.

Efrem: NOW HER FOCUS

IS NBA BASKETBALL AS SHE

CHEERS ON HER HUSBAND AT

ALMOST ALL OF THE

WARRIORS' HOME GAMES.

AWAY FROM THE COURT...

HI, GUYS.

AISHA HERE, AND TODAY I

HAVE A RECIPE FOR YOU THAT

IS A STAPLE IN OUR

HOUSEHOLD.

IT IS MY BROWN SUGAR

BACON.

Efrem: HER PASSION

MOVES TO THE KITCHEN,

SHARING RECIPES AND

COOKING TIPS WITH THE

MILLIONS WHO FOLLOW HER

ONLINE, AND IN HER

BEST-SELLING COOKBOOK:

"THE SEASONED LIFE: FOOD,

FAMILY, FAITH, AND THE JOY

OF EATING WELL."

WAS THIS IS A HARD THING

TO DO?

YEAH.

THERE WERE POINTS WHERE I

WANTED TO GIVE UP, AND

THERE WERE POINTS THAT

WERE ENJOYABLE, AND THERE

WERE POINTS WHEN I DIDN'T

WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE.

BUT I PUSHED THROUGH, AND

I'M REALLY HAPPY I DID

BECAUSE I NOW HAVE A BOOK

FULL OF QUICK AND EASY

RECIPES FOR PEOPLE TO

ENJOY AND FOR ME TO PASS

DOWN TO MY DAUGHTERS.

Efrem: THERE WAS A

PERIOD WHERE YOU WERE

PURSUING ACTING?

YEAH.

IT IS SO FUNNY BECAUSE

LOOKING BACK NOW, IT SEEMS

LIKE MY CHILDHOOD, I'VE

DONE IT SINCE I WAS ABOUT

TWO.

I LEFT HIGH SCHOOL EARLY

AND WENT OUT TO L.A. TO

PURSUE IT.

AND IT GOT TO A POINT

WHERE I REALIZED THAT IT

WASN'T FOR ME.

I GUESS I WAS PRETTY GOOD

AT IT.

I WAS STEADILY WORKING,

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE A

PASSION FOR IT.

AND FOR A LONG TIME DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT MY CAREER WAS

GOING TO BE, AND I

STRUGGLED WITH THAT FOR A

WHILE.

BUT I PRAYED ABOUT IT AND

PRESSED THROUGH.

AND I REALIZED THAT IT WAS

STARING ME IN MY FACE THE

WHOLE TIME.

Efrem: PRAYER AND A

GENTLE PUSH FROM HER

HUSBAND --

* CHEF CURRY WITH THE

POT *

Efrem: SHE BEGAN

SHARING HER FUN KITCHEN

LIFE, AND FANS QUICKLY

FOLLOWED.

> HOW IMPORTANT DO YOU

THINK IT IS FOR PEOPLE TO

ACKNOWLEDGE GOD IN THAT

PROCESS?

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.

BECAUSE YOU CAN FIND

YOURSELF IN A PLACE YOU

DON'T WANT TO BE REALLY

QUICKLY.

I FEEL LIKE IT IS

IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE

YOU'RE ALWAYS PRAYING,

ALWAYS TALKING, TO HAVE,

LIKE, CLARITY OF MIND AND

PEACE.

Efrem: SHE REGULARLY

SHARES HER FAMILY'S

CHRISTIAN FAITH,

ACKNOWLEDGING EVEN ONLINE,

SHE IS FIRST A BELIEVER,

THEN A WIFE, AND THEN A

MOTHER.

Efrem: NOW, YOU HAVE

A BIG SOCIAL MEDIA

FOLLOWING.

YOU'VE GOT MORE THAN FOUR

MILLION ON INSTAGRAM.

YOU'RE VERY OPEN ABOUT

YOUR LIFE, THE UPS AND

DOWNS, AND PASSIONATE.

BUT THAT COMES WITH

CRITICS, TOO.

YOU TAKE SOME HEAT SOME

TIMES?

YEAH.

100% OF THE PEOPLE ARE NOT

GOING TO LIKE WHAT YOU DO

100% OF THE TIME.

Efrem: SHE QUICKLY

FELT THAT HEAT WHEN

QUESTIONING THE NBA AND

WHEN QUESTIONING FASHION

TRENDS SHE FOUND A LITTLE

TOO REVEALING.

YOU CAN BE AN ANGEL,

AND SOMEBODY IS STILL

GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING

NEGATIVE TO SAY.

I REALLY TAKE IT WITH A

GRAIN OF SALT -- NO PUN

INTENDED.

Efrem: YOUR HUSBAND

IS FANTASTIC ON THE

BASKETBALL COURT --

THANK YOU.

Efrem: IN THE

KITCHEN, WHAT'S THE STORY?

HE IS GETTING BETTER.

YOU KNOW, PERSISTENCE.

IT DIDN'T START OUT SO

WELL, AND THERE ARE SOME

STORIES ABOUT THAT IN THE

BOOK AS WELL.

BUT HE'S GOTTEN BETTER.

Efrem: AND AISHA

KNOWS A BIT ABOUT

PERSISTENCE.

IN ADDITION TO THE

COOKBOOK, SHE ALSO HAS A

SHOW ON THE FOOD NETWORK.

BUT IT CAME ONLY AFTER THE

EXECUTIVES SAID NO A FEW

TIMES.

I GUESS MY MOTTO IS:

LET THEM SAY NO UNTIL THEY

SAY YES.

DON'T STOP.

DON'T STOP.

Efrem: EFREM GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS, SAN FRANCISCO.

Gordon: BEST WISHES

TO HER AND GREAT SUCCESS

WITH THAT WONDERFUL

TELEVISION SHOW.

BUT I'M NOT SO SURE ABOUT

BROWN SUGAR BACON.

IF THAT'S A TRAINING MEAL

FOR AN NBA STAR, WOULD

YOUR CARDIOLOGIST APPROVE.

Terry: IT SOUNDS

WONDERFUL, MAYBE ONE PIECE

OCCASIONALLY.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, A PROFESSIONAL HOME

WRECKER WHO GOT HUSBANDS

HOOKED ON DRUGS.

ONCE I GOT THE GUY

HIGH, THAT WAS EASY

BECAUSE NOW I'M INVITED

INTO THEIR HOMES.

I DESTROYED BUSINESSMEN'S

HOMES.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

DRUG DEALER WRECKED HOME

AFTER HOME UNTIL A

SUPERNATURAL VOICE STOPPED

HIM.

Gordon: JUAN MARTINEZ

WAS A HOMEWRECKER AND

PROUD OF IT.

HE WOULD TARGET A GUY, GET

HIM HOOKED ON DRUGS, AND

THEN GET HIS WIFE HOOKED

AS WELL.

HE DESTROYED HOME AFTER

HOME THIS WAY UNTIL THE

DAY HE WAS MAKING A

DELIVERY AND A VOICE

STOPPED HIM IN HIS TRACKS.

EVERYWHERE I WENT, I

DESTROYED HOMES, BUSINESS

OWNER'S, LAWYER'S,

DENTIST'S.

I THOUGHT I DID IT BEST.

Reporter: JUAN

MARTINEZ GREW UP WILLING

TO DO ANYTHING TO FEEL

ACCEPTED AND PROVE

HIMSELF.

MY PARENTS GOT DIVORCED

WHEN I WAS, LIKE, EIGHT

YEARS OLD, SO I DIDN'T

REALLY HAVE A FATHER

FIGURE, PER SE.

I WAS LOOKING AT OUTSIDE

AND WHAT WAS IN MOVIES.

I THOUGHT THE TOUGHEST GUY

OUT THERE, AND THE GUY

THAT HAD THE MOST MONEY

AND THE MOST WOMEN, THAT

THAT WAS REALLY THE

PICTURE OF WHAT A GUY WAS

LIKE.

Reporter: JUAN

STARTED HANGING OUT WITH

THE OLDER KIDS IN THIS NEW

JERSEY NEIGHBORHOOD.

THEY INTRODUCED HIM TO

DRUGS AND BY 13 HE WAS

USING AND SELLING

MARIJUANA AND COCAINE.

I FELT ACCEPTED BY

THESE GUYS.

THEY TAUGHT ME WHAT THEY

KNEW.

THEY TAUGHT ME THEIR

TRADE.

I WAS THINKING, IF THIS IS

WHAT I HAVE TO DO, THEN I

HAVE TO TOP EVERYBODY.

SO THAT'S WHO I BECAME.

Reporter: YEARS

LATER, JUAN MOVED TO TEXAS

TO EXPAND HIS TERRITORY.

AND HE WAS INTRODUCED TO

METH.

HE STARTED USING IT AND

THEN SELLING IT, WITH ONE

GOAL IN MIND.

I WANTED TO MAKE A LOT

OF MONEY.

I WAS GOING TO COME HERE,

I WAS GOING TO DO THE BIG

SCORE, AND I WAS GOING TO

BE ONE OF THE MAIN

DISTRIBUTORS IN NEW YORK

CITY AND NEW JERSEY AND

ALL OF THOSE OTHER STATES.

Reporter: JUAN BEGAN

BY TARGETING FAMILIES IN

THE SUBURBS.

HIS STRATEGY WAS TO FIRST

BEFRIEND THE FATHERS.

I KNEW THEY WERE

DRINKERS, AND WE WOULD

DRINK.

EVENTUALLY, HEY, DO YOU

WANT TO GET HIGH.

AND ONCE I GOT THE GUY

HIGH, THEN IT WAS EASY

BECAUSE NOW I'M INVITED

INTO THEIR HOME.

Reporter: ONCE THEY

BECAME HOOKED, HE BECAME

THEIR DEALER AND MOVED ON

TO THE NEXT HOME.

IT WAS THIS WEIRD WORLD

THAT MADE ME FEEL, LIKE,

YEAH, I WAS ACCOMPLISHING

SOMETHING IN LIFE.

Reporter: AS LONG AS

JUAN STAYED HIGH, HE

DIDN'T HAVE TO THINK ABOUT

WHAT HE WAS DOING.

I DIDN'T THINK THAT THE

THINGS I WAS DOING WERE

BAD.

IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU'RE

DOING ANYTHING WRONG, YOU

JUST BEGIN TO CHASE AFTER

SOMETHING THAT REALLY WILL

NEVER SATISFY YOU, BUT YOU

CHASE AFTER IT ANYWAY.

Reporter: ONE DAY

JUAN WAS OUT ON A DELIVERY

WHEN HE HEARD A VOICE HE

DIDN'T RECOGNIZE.

I'M HEARING, WHY ARE

YOU STEALING AND

DESTROYING THE VERY LIVES

I'M GIVING PEOPLE?

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY

LIFE, I FELT HORRIBLE.

I'M WEEPING AND CRYING.

AND THEN IT'S LIKE IN A

TWINKLING OF AN EYE,

EVERYTHING STOPS.

I STILL WENT AND MADE MY

DELIVERIES, BUT THERE WAS

A THOUGHT EVERY TIME I

HANDED IT TO SOMEBODY.

SO I WOULD HAND IT TO A

WOMAN, AND I WAS THINKING,

MAN, I'M RUINING HER LIFE.

I WOULD HAND IT TO A GUY,

MAN, I'M RUINING HIS LIFE.

Reporter: JUAN HAD

GONE TO CHURCH AS A CHILD

AND BELIEVED THE VOICE WAS

GOD'S, BUT DIDN'T KNOW HOW

TO CHANGE.

A SHORT TIME LATER, HE WAS

ARRESTED FOR METH

POSSESSION AND LANDED IN

JAIL.

FACING A 25-YEAR SENTENCE.

I HIT ROCK BOTTOM.

NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.

I'M DONE.

I'M AT A PLACE NOW WHERE I

DON'T HAVE ANYBODY.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT,

ENCOURAGED BY HIS CELL

MATE, JUAN PRAYED AND READ

THE BIBLE.

WEEPING, I GOT ON MY

KNEES.

I'M REPENTING ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

I'M LITERALLY GOING

THROUGH AND THINKING ABOUT

THINGS I HAD DONE IN MY

LIFE.

I WAS, LIKE, I'M SORRY,

GOD.

I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE.

I WANT THIS JESUS.

Reporter: JUAN

SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

CHRIST AND ALL LOST DESIRE

FOR DRUGS.

I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I

HAD TO PROVE ANYTHING

ANYMORE.

I FELT LIKE I WAS

ACCEPTED, LOVED.

I JUST FELT THIS LOVE.

SOMETHING HAPPENED.

I WAS NEVER THE SAME

AGAIN.

Reporter: JUAN'S

SENTENCE WAS REDUCED TO

FOUR YEARS.

AND HE SPENT HIS TIME IN

PRISON GROWING IN HIS

FAITH.

TODAY HE IS MARRIED AND

HAS A FAMILY.

AND I AS A PASTOR GOES BACK

TO THE VERY NEIGHBORHOODS

WHERE HE DEALT DRUGS AND

SHARES THE GOSPEL.

JESUS FILLED EVERY

VOID.

WHEN I DIDN'T HAVE A

FATHER, HE WAS MY FATHER.

WHATEVER VOID IT IS THAT

HAS YOU EMPTY, YOU CAN

FILL THAT VOID WITH JESUS.

JESUS WANTS TO GIVE YOU

LIFE.

Gordon: AND HE WANTS

TO DO IT FOR YOU.

HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU LIFE.

THAT'S WHY HE CAME, THAT

YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND

HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE

ABUNDANTLY.

HE IS NOT HERE TO DEPRIVE

YOU OF THINGS.

HE IS HERE TO BRING YOU

LIFE, JOY, PEACE.

THESE ARE THE THINGS HE

COMES WITH.

MAYBE YOU'RE LIKE JUAN.

MAYBE A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY

HAPPENED TO YOU IN YOUR

CHILDHOOD, AND EVER SINCE

YOU'VE BEEN TRYING TO FILL

THAT VOID.

MAYBE A TRAGEDY DIDN'T

HAPPEN, BUT YOU JUST HAVE

THIS VOID.

YOU'RE TRYING TO FIND WHAT

IS LIFE ABOUT?

WHAT AM I ABOUT?

AND MAYBE YOU'VE TRIED THE

THINGS THAT JUAN HAS

TRIED.

MAYBE YOU WENT AFTER DRUGS

OR SOME SORT OF SENSE OF

SUCCESS OR PRESTIGE OR

MONEY, POWER, FAME --

THESE THINGS.

AND THEN YOU FIND THAT

THEY DON'T SATISFY.

YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT, AND

YOU KEEP CHASING AFTER IT,

AND CHASING AFTER IT, AND

CHASING AFTER IT, AND IT

NEVER SERVICE.

SATISFIES.

WELL, WHEN YOU FIND JESUS,

HE SATISFIES.

HE SATISFIES THAT LONGING.

HE FILLS YOU WITH HIS

LOVE, WITH HIS JOY, WITH

HIS PEACE.

AND WHEN YOU FIND THAT,

YOU UNDERSTAND THIS IS

WHAT YOU WERE MADE FOR.

GOD CREATED US TO LIVE

WITH HIM IN A GARDEN.

AND IT'S THAT GOD-SHAPED

HOLE IN OUR HEARTS THAT

CAN ONLY BE FILLED WITH

HIM.

SOLOMON SAID IT.

HE SAID, GOD HAS PUT

ETERNITY IN OUR HEARTS.

AND THAT ETERNITY ONLY

GETS FILLED WITH THE

ETERNAL ONE.

WE WERE MADE FOR A

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

AND IF WE DON'T HAVE IT,

WE'RE CHASING IN ALL THE

WRONG PLACES.

BUT WHEN YOU DO HAVE IT,

WELL, THERE IS NOTHING

LEFT TO PROVE.

YOU START TO REALIZE YOU

FOUND THE ONE THING, THE

ONE THING THAT MAKES ALL

OF THE DIFFERENCE.

IF YOU WANT THIS, IT'S

REAL EASY TO GET IT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

FOR IT.

EVEN IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE

THAT IT'S REAL, YOU CAN

SAY THIS ONE WONDERFUL

PRAYER: JESUS, IF YOU'RE

REAL, IF YOU REALLY CAME

FOR ME, IF YOU REALLY DIED

ON A CROSS, IF YOU REALLY

ROSE AGAIN, IF YOU REALLY

ARE MY SAVIOR, COULD YOU

SHOW ME?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT, NOT

JOKINGLY, BUT IF YOU PRAY

THAT WITH ALL OF YOUR

HEART, HE'LL ANSWER.

HE'LL COME TO YOU.

SO IF YOU WANT THIS PEACE,

YOU WANT THIS JOY, YOU

WANT THIS LIFE THAT GOD

HAS FOR YOU, BOW YOUR HEAD

WITH ME.

LET'S PRAY A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER AND LET JESUS DO

ALL THE REST.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

JUST SAY HIS NAME.

SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND I

WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU'RE

REAL.

I WANT TO KNOW THAT YOU'RE

THERE, THAT YOU CAN HEAR

MY PRAYER.

AND, JESUS, I ESPECIALLY

WANT TO KNOW IF YOU'RE MY

SAVIOR.

IF YOU COULD FORGIVE ME.

IF YOU COULD SET ME FREE.

IF YOU COULD FILL ME WITH

YOUR LOVE, YOUR JOY, YOUR

PEACE.

IF YOU COULD GIVE ME THE

LIFE YOU INTEND FOR ME.

AND, JESUS, I ASK FOR THAT

RIGHT NOW.

I ASK THAT YOU COME INTO

MY HEART, THAT YOU MAKE ME

NEW, THAT YOU SET ME FREE.

AND, JESUS, 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, FILL THEM WITH

YOUR LOVE, WITH YOUR JOY.

SHOW THEM THEIR PURPOSE.

GIVE THEM A HOPE AND A

FUTURE, FOR WE ASK IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

THERE IS ONE MORE THING I

WANT YOU TO DO.

I WANT TO YOU MAKE A PHONE

CALL.

AND WHEN YOU DO, WE'VE GOT

SOMETHING FOR YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND THERE IS A C.D.

TEACHING.

WHAT DO CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE?

WHAT DO I DO NOW?

HOW DO I LIVE THE

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

IT'S ALL FREE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK

UP THE PHONE.

1-800-700-7000.

AND JUST SAY, I PRAYED

WITH THAT GUY ON TV, AND I

ASKED JESUS TO COME INTO

MY HEART.

WE'LL SEND IT TO YOU

ABSOLUTELY FREE.

THERE IS NO FINANCIAL

OBLIGATION AT ALL.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.

WE WANT YOU TO BE

ENCOURAGED.

WE WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT

TO DO NEXT.

SO CALL US:

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY, OVER TO YOU.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, A BABY WHO WAS

ACTING STRANGELY, AND

DOCTORS SOON DISCOVERED

THE REASON WHY.

WHEN WE EXAMINED THIS

YOUNG BOY, WE SAW HIS

EYES -- BOTH EYES WERE

FILLED WITH CANCER.

Terry: WATCH HOW THIS

CHILD WAS HEALED.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

DEMOCRATS IN OREGON HAVE

PASSED A BILL REQUIRING

INSURANCE COMPANIES TO PAY

FOR ABORTIONS FOR ANY

PATIENT, INCLUDING ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

THE BILL ESSENTIALLY MAKES

ABORTIONS FREE AND IT

COVERS ABORTION FOR

VIRTUALLY ANY REASON, EVEN

LATE-TERM AND

SEX-SELECTION ABORTIONS.

IT PROVIDES AN EXEMPTION

FOR CHURCHES AND RELIGIOUS

NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS.

IT NOW GOES TO THE

DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR KATE

BROWN.

> STEVE SCALISE IS BACK

IN INTENSIVE CARE BECAUSE

OF INFECTION CONCERNS.

SCALISE AND FOUR OTHERS

WERE INJURED LAST MONTH

AFTER A GUNMAN OPENED FIRE

ON A REPUBLICAN BASEBALL

PRACTICE.

> REMEMBER, YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO

cbnnews.com.

GORDON AND TERRY WILL BE

BACK WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Terry: TODAY SIMERA

IS ALWAYS ON HER FEET,

DANCING FOR JOY.

BUT WHEN WE FIRST MET HER,

SHE COULD BARELY WALK, AND

HER CONDITION BROKE HER

MOM'S HEART.

SIMERA'S EYES SPARKLE WHEN

SHE SMILES.

THE SPIRITED 7-YEAR-OLD

FROM WESTERN UKRAINE SEEMS

TO HAVE NO CARES IN THE

WORLD.

BUT TRUTH IS, SIMERA WAS

BORN WITH TWO CLUBBED

FEET, A SERIOUS DISABILITY

THAT CAUSES SEVERE PAIN

AND LIMITS HER MOVEMENT.

HER MOTHER, NORA, SUFFERS,

TOO.

I FEEL PAIN BECAUSE SHE

IS MY CHILD.

I CAN'T LOOK AT HER

WITHOUT CRYING.

BUT I CAN'T DO ANYTHING

FOR HER.

I CAN PRAY FOR THE SURGERY

THAT WOULD ALLOW HER TO

WALK AND RUN AND PLAY LIKE

OTHER CHILDREN.

Terry: SIMERA RARELY

CRIES, BUT THIS DAY HER

TEARS FALL WHEN SHE SEES

HER MOTHER CRY.

I HAVE ONE DREAM: FOR

SIMERA TO BE HEALTHY AND

WALK NORMALLY.

Terry: YET NORA KNOWS

HER DREAM IS UNLIKELY TO

COME TRUE.

THIS POOR FAMILY CAN

BARELY AFFORD FOOD.

AND LIKE MOST PEOPLE IN

THIS VILLAGE, NORA AND HER

HUSBAND ARE UNEDUCATED,

AND THEIR JOB

OPPORTUNITIES ARE LIMITED.

MY HUSBAND IS HIRED BY

PEOPLE TO DO JOBS LIKE

CUTTING GRASS OR DIGGING

GRAVES, AND IS ONLY PAID

$2 TO $4 A DAY.

Terry: THAT'S WHY

NORA WAS OVERJOYED WHEN

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

OPENED A SCHOOL NEARBY.

THEY ENROLLED SIMERA RIGHT

AWAY.

BUT WE KNEW SHE NEEDED

MUCH MORE THAN JUST

READING AND WRITING

SKILLS.

SHE NEEDED SURGERY THAT

HER PARENTS COULD NEVER

AFFORD.

SO IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE

WE LOCATED A SKILLED

SURGEON AND PAID THE FULL

COST OF SIMERA'S SURGERY

AND POST-OPERATIVE CARE.

11 MONTHS LATER, HER LEGS

AND FEET WERE NORMAL.

MY CHILD CAN DO

EVERYTHING.

WHAT ELSE COULD I EVER

WANT?

THANK YOU.

IT ALL IS BECAUSE OF YOU.

I CAN WALK AND RUN.

I CAN PLAY WITH OTHER

CHILDREN.

I EVEN TAKE DANCING

LESSONS AT MY SCHOOL.

THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME

STRAIGHT LEGS.

Terry: YOU KNOW, I

LOVE THIS STORY BECAUSE

YOU MADE SUCH AN

INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE IN

THIS CHILD'S LIFE.

WHEN YOU DO SOMETHING LIKE

THAT, WHEN YOU STEP INTO

THE VERY POINT OF

SOMEONE'S NEED, NOT ONLY

DID YOU CHANGE HER LIFE,

NOT ONLY DID YOU TOUCH AND

CHANGE HER PARENTS' HEARTS

AND LIVES, THAT WHOLE

COMMUNITY WAS WATCHING.

AND THEY SAY, WHO DID

THIS?

WHO CARED ENOUGH TO COME

FROM FAR AWAY AND HELP

PEOPLE THAT THEY MAY NEVER

SEE?

IT'S YOU, "700 CLUB"

PARTNERS, THAT'S WHAT YOU

DID EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK

ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU

FOR SEEING PEOPLE'S NEEDS,

FOR STANDING UP AND

SAYING, I WANT TO MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

AND WHEN WE ALL LINK ARMS

TOGETHER, THAT'S HOW WE

MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.

THAT'S WHY TODAY WE'RE

ASKING YOU TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH MAKES YOU A "700

CLUB" MEMBER.

AND HERE IS ANOTHER WAY

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE:

WHEN YOU CALL AND JOIN

TODAY, CALL

1-800-700-7000, WOULD YOU

DO IT SAYING, I WANT TO

USE PLEDGE EXPRESS.

THAT'S ELECTRONIC MONTHLY

GIVING.

IT MEANS YOUR BANK DOES

ALL OF THE WORK, BUT YOU

SAVE SOME ADMINISTRATIVE

COSTS IN THE PROCESS ON

THIS END FOR US, SO EVEN

MORE OF YOUR GIFT CAN GO

RIGHT INTO THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE LIKE SIMERA AND HER

FAMILY.

WHEN YOU USE PLEDGE

EXPRESS, OUR WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT

IS TO SEND YOU A "POWER

FOR LIFE" TEACHING.

WE THINK THEY'LL BLESS

YOU.

THESE ARE TEACHINGS WE GET

AS A FAMILY HERE AT CBN.

THIS ONE IS CALLED "THE

POWER OF KNOWING GOD'S

LOVE," BY GORDON.

IT WILL BE JUST ONE OF

THEM YOU RECEIVE WHEN YOU

SAY, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB," AND I WANT TO

DO IT USING PLEDGE

EXPRESS.

WE SAY THANK YOU.

GORDON?

Gordon: UP NEXT,

DOCTORS ARE STUNNED WHEN A

BABY IS SUPERNATURALLY

HEALED.

IT WAS A LITTLE BIT

SHOCKING THAT IT

SPONTANEOUSLY WENT AWAY

AND WENT AWAY SO FAST.

EVERYBODY IN THE ROOM WAS

JUST, LIKE, SMILING.

IT WAS AMAZING.

Gordon: SEE WHY THIS

WAS SO AMAZING, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

*

Gordon: SARAH PAULEY

HEARD DEVASTATING NEWS

FROM HER SON'S DOCTORS

AFTER HE WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH CANCER.

SHE WAS TOLD THAT HER BABY

WAS ONLY GOING TO GET

WORSE, BUT TARA REFUSED TO

BELIEVE IT.

AND NINE MONTHS LATER,

DOCTORS COULDN'T BELIEVE

WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

Reporter: ON

JANUARY 1st, 2011, TOM

AND TARA WERE CELEBRATING

THE NEW YEAR WITH THE

BIRTH OF THEIR SON,

MADDOX.

IT WAS SURREAL.

WE WERE SUPER EXCITED.

THIS WAS OUR FIRST

CHILD TOGETHER, SO IT WAS

A BEAUTIFUL BONDING MOMENT

FOR OUR FAMILY.

Reporter: BUT WHEN

MADDOX WAS SEVEN MONTHS

OLD, THEY STARTED NOTICING

SOMETHING WASN'T RIGHT

WITH THEIR SON.

I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS

HOLDING HIM AND LOOKING

DOWN INTO HIS EYES, AND I

JUST DIDN'T FEEL THAT BOND

THAT I KNEW I SHOULD FEEL

WHEN I LOOKED AT MY CHILD.

IF I CALLED HIS NAME,

HE WOULD LOOK, BUT HE

WOULDN'T BE LOOKING AT ME.

HE WOULD BE LOOKING KIND

OF IN THE AREA.

Reporter: AFTER A

THOROUGH EXAMINATION, THE

PEDIATRICIAN REFERRED THEM

TO AN EYE SPECIALIST.

HE LOOKED INTO HIS EYES

AND HE SAT BACK AND TOOK A

DEEP BREATH, AND HE SAID,

I'M SO SAD TO TELL YOU

THIS, BUT MADDOX HAS

TUMORS IN HIS EYES AND

THAT'S WHY HE CAN'T SEE.

I LOOKED BACK AT THE

DOCTOR AND I SAID, IS HE

GOING TO BE OKAY?

HE TOLD ME, I CAN'T TELL

YOU THAT FOR SURE.

THAT WAS PROBABLY THE

WORST DAY OF MY LIFE.

I WAS SO ANGRY, AND, LIKE,

ALMOST YELLING WHY?

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

Reporter: THE

SPECIALIST THEN SENT THEM

TO THE WILL'S EYE

INSTITUTE IN PHILADELPHIA,

WHERE THEY MET DR. CAROL

SHIELDS.

WE SAW BOTH EYES HAD

ADVANCED RETINALBLASTOMA.

BOTH EYES WERE FILLED WITH

CANCER.

Reporter: THE GOOD

NEWS WAS THE CANCER HADN'T

SPREAD, AND DOCTOR SHIELDS

TOLD THE COUPLE THAT SIX

MONTHS OF CHEMOTHERAPY

SHOULD ELIMINATE IT

COMPLETELY.

BUT THERE WAS A CHANCE

MADDOX COULD LOSE ONE OR

BOTH OF HIS EYES.

WHEN I THOUGHT ABOUT

MOMADDOX BEING BLIND, I WAS

TERRIFIED BECAUSE THAT'S

NOT WHAT I WANTED FOR MY

CHILD.

SO I PRAYED TO GOD, SAYING

THANK YOU, GOD THAT HE CAN CAN

SEE HE PERFECTLY OUT OF BOTH

OF HIS EYES.

AND I REALLY BELIEVED IT.

Reporter: IT WAS

TREATED SUCCESSFULLY WITH

RADIATION, BUT THE SIDE

EFFECTS WERE SEVERE.

WE CURED THE CANCER,

BUT THEN HE IS LEFT WITH

ALL OF THIS SWELLING IN

HIS EYE.

IN HIS CASE, HIS RETINA

WAS ALL BLISTEREDED UP.

WE CALL THAT RETINAL

DETACHMENT.

THERE WOULD BE PROBABLY AN

80% TO 90% CHANCE HE WOULD

LOSE HIS EYE.

I WASN'T PREPARED.

AND I FELT SICK.

I FELT SCARED.

AND I JUST REMEMBER

LOOKING AT HER AND SAYING,

HE IS NOT GOING TO NEED

HIS EYE REMOVED.

I SAID, I'M GOING TO GO

HOME AND I'M GOING TO PRAY

TO GOD FOR A MIRACLE, AND

HE IS NOT GOING TO NEED

HIS EYE REMOVED.

I WAS REALLY SORT OF

AMAZED BY HER BELIEF.

AND, YOU KNOW, I WOULD

CHUCKLE AND I WOULD SAY,

WELL, YOU KNOW, GETTING

BACK TO MEDICINE.

MEDICALLY, SCIENTIFICALLY,

HE IS AT RISK TO LOSE THIS

EYE.

AND SHE WOULD SHAKE HER

HEAD AND SAY, I REALLY

DON'T THINK THAT'S GOING

TO HAPPEN.

Reporter: ONE DAY TOM

AND TARA WERE AT HOME,

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

WHEN GORDON ROBERTSON

STARTED PRAYING.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEBODY WITH BLISTERING

ON YOUR EYEBALL.

AND IT IS A PARTICULAR

PROBLEM IN YOUR RIGHT EYE.

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT

BLISTERING NOW.

AND ALL THAT PAIN AND

DISCOMFORT AND INABILITY

HAS TURNED INTO ABILITY

AND COMFORT.

AND YOU'RE PAIN-FREE NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

I FELT JOY BECAUSE GOD

HAS GIVEN US SIGNS THAT HE

IS HERE AND HE'S GOING TO,

YOU KNOW, HEAL HIM AND

TAKE CARE OF HIM.

Reporter: ONE MONTH

LATER TOM AND TARA WATCHED

AND WAITED AS DR. SHIELDS

AND HER TEAM TOOK A

CAREFUL LOOK AT MADDOX'S

EYE.

I EXAMINED HIM WITH MY

SCOPES AND I WAS LOOKING.

AND I LOOKED AT MY

ASSISTANT AND I SAID, HIS

DETACHMENT IS GONE.

NO FLUID AND NO

DETACHMENT.

IT WAS A LITTLE BIT

SHOCKING THAT IT

SPONTANEOUSLY WENT AWAY

AND WENT AWAY SO FAST.

EVERYBODY IN THE ROOM

WAS JUST, LIKE, SMILING

ANDAND, LIKE -- IT WAS

AMAZING.

I STARTED LAUGHING A

LITTLE BIT BECAUSE IT WAS,

LIKE, WHOA, THIS REALLY

HAPPENED.

Reporter: SINCE THEN,

MADDOX HASN'T HAD ANY

PROBLEM WITH HIS EYES AND

ENJOYS WRESTLING AND

PLAYING VIDEO GAMES WITH

HIS TWO BROTHERS.

THIS IS AN AMAZING

THING THAT HAPPENED.

SOME THINGS IN SCIENCE ARE

NOT EXPLAINABLE BY

SCIENTIFIC REASONING.

SOMETIMES WE JUST LOOK AT

EACH OTHER AND SCRATCH OUR

HEADS AND SAY, SOME DAY

WE'LL REALIZE

SCIENTIFICALLY WHAT

EXACTLY HAPPENED.

IT IS JUST, I MEAN, A

MIRACLE, OBVIOUSLY.

BUT I FEEL NOW THAT I KNOW

JESUS AND GOD ON SUCH A

PERSONAL LEVEL.

HONESTLY, I HAVE NO

DOUBTS THAT GOD CAN DO

ANYTHING.

Gordon: HE CAN DO

ANYTHING.

AND MEDICAL SCIENCE IS

NEVER GOING TO GET TO THE

END OF THAT.

WHEN GOD DOES MIRACLES, IT

DEFIES EXPLANATION.

YOU LOOK AT IT, AND YOU

GO, THE GLORY OF THE LORD

HAS BEEN REVEALED.

HE SPOKE.

AND THE UNIVERSE CAME INTO

BEING.

YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN THESE

THINGS.

BUT IT HELPS WHEN YOU

BELIEVE.

AND I LOVE TARA'S PRAYER,

THAT WONDERFUL MOTHER.

HERE SHE IS, SHE IS

THANKING GOD IN ADVANCE

FOR THE HEALING.

I THANK YOU THAT MY SON IS

GOING TO BE ABLE TO SEE

CLEARLY THROUGH BOTH EYES.

THAT'S A WONDERFUL PRAYER.

AND REALIZE WHEN YOU THANK

HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS

ALREADY DONE, THEN YOU

RECEIVE IT.

AND THESE AREN'T MY WORDS.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF

JESUS.

YOU CAN FIND IT IN MARK

11, WHERE HE EXPLAINS TO

HIS DISCIPLES THE KEY TO

MIRACLES.

THE NUMBER ONE KEY: HAVE

FAITH IN GOD.

DON'T HAVE FAITH IN YOUR

PRAYER.

DON'T HAVE FAITH IN SOME

RITUAL.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

HE IS THE MIRACLE

PROVIDER.

HE IS THE ONE THAT DOES

THE HEAVY LIFTING.

HE IS THE ONE THAT DOES

THE MIRACLE.

HAVE FAITH IN GOD.

AND THEN HE SAYS, WHEN YOU

STAND PRAYING, BELIEVE

THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY

RECEIVED.

SO PUT YOURSELF IN THAT

PLACE, JUST AS TARA PUT

HERSELF IN THAT PLACE.

SHE BELIEVED THAT SHE HAD

ALREADY RECEIVED.

AND IN THAT BELIEF WAS

THANKING GOD FOR WHAT HE

WAS DOING.

NOW, SHE WAS DOING THAT

BEFOREIADOIATION.

BEFORE RADIATION.

SHE WAS DOING THAT BEFORE

CHEMO.

SHE WAS DOING THAT BEFORE

THE BLISTERS.

SHE WAS DOING THAT BEFORE

A RECURRENCE.

SHE WAS SAYING, I BELIEVE.

I THANK YOU, LORD, FOR

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

AND SHE PERSEVERED

THROUGH.

YOU HAVE TO FIGHT THE GOOD

FIGHT OF FAITH.

NOW, TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY.

HERE IS A WONDERFUL VERSE

FOR YOU: WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING,

IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM

BY MAY FATHER IBY MY FATHER IN HEAVEN.

SO WE'RE GOING TO AGREE.

WHAT I ASK YOU TO DO IS

REACH OUT IN FAITH AND

TOUCH IT.

JUST LAY HANDS ON THAT

AREA OF THE BODY THAT

NEEDS HEALING.

AND WE'RE GOING TO THANK

GOD FOR THE HEALING.

AND THEN RECEIVE IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THE

NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE TO

YOU.

AND AS PEOPLE ARE REACHING

OUT AND TOUCHING AND

LAYING HANDS, WE COME INTO

AGREEMENT WITH THEM.

AND WE JUST DECLARE

THANKSGIVING FOR WHAT YOU

ARE DOING, HOW YOU ARE

DOING SUCH WONDERFUL

MIRACLES TODAY.

FOR YOU ARE THE SAME

YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND

FOREVER.

YOU HAVE RISEN FROM THE

DEAD.

AND YOUR RESURRECTION

POWER IS IN US NOW.

AND WE CAN AGREE TOUCHING

ANYTHING AND IT SHALL BE

DONE.

SO LORD, STRETCH FORTH

YOUR HAND TO DO WONDERFUL

MIRACLES.

WE LOOK TO YOU, THE AUTHOR

AND THE FINISHER OF OUR

FAITH, WE LOOK TO YOUR

SACRIFICE, AND WE DECLARE

BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS

CHRIST, BY HIS BLOOD I AM

HEALED; I AM MADE WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE

GOT A DETACHED RETINA IN

YOUR LEFT EYE, AND YOU'RE

SAYING, PLEASE SAY THAT.

AND THAT DETACHMENT IS

JUST GOING TO MIRACULOUSLY

HEAL BACK UP.

AND THE RETINA IS GOING TO

ADHERE BACK TO THE

EYEBALL.

YOU'RE HEALED NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

JUST TAKE YOUR -- YOU'VE

GOT YOUR LEFT HAND OVER

YOUR LEFT EYE.

JUST TAKE IT OFF, OPEN

YOUR EYE, AND REALIZE YOU

CAN SEE PERFECTLY CLEAR

THROUGH THAT EYE NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME BE HEALED.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

POLYPS IN YOUR SINUS

CAVITY.

AND IT'S NOT -- THAT'S

EXACTLY THE TERM THAT HAS

BEEN USED.

IT IS NOT LIKE YOU HAVE

CYSTS OR TUMORS, IT IS

POLYPS.

BUT IT IS VERY

DESTRUCTIVE.

YOUR BREATHING IS

AFFECTED.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH IN AND

BREATHE OUT, AND YOU'VE

BEEN HEALED.

Gordon: YOU HAVE

CANCER IN YOUR LYMPH

NODES, AND IT IS A

PARTICULAR PROBLEM ON THE

RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR NECK,

IN THAT LYMPH GLAND AND

THEN IN THE LYMPH GLAND

UNDERNEATH YOUR RIGHT

ARMPIT.

BOTH ARE SWOLLEN AND

PAINFUL.

AND GOD HAS HEALED YOU.

HE IS SETTING YOU FREE

FROM THAT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEAR

DEATH ANYMORE.

HE IS IN CONTROL OF THIS.

HE IS RESTORING YOU NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME BE HEALED

AND BE SET FREE.

THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE WITH

NERVE PAIN ON THE RIGHT

SIDE OF YOUR FACE THAT

GOES UP INTO YOUR UPPER

RIGHT PART OF YOUR SKULL.

AND GOD IS JUST TAKING

THAT NERVE PAIN AWAY FROM

YOU.

AND ALL THAT IRRITATION

AND ALL OF THE WRONG

SIGNALS COMING FROM THAT

NERVE ARE GONE NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

Terry: AND THERE IS A

WOMAN, YOU HAVE ARTHRITIS

IN YOUR HANDS.

IT IS SO PAINFUL, THE ACHE

IS SO DEEP AND SO CHRONIC,

THAT YOU'RE JUST MISERABLE

ALL OF THE TIME.

JUST LIFT YOUR HANDS UP

AND PRAISE THE LORD RIGHT

NOW AS HE SETS YOU FREE

FROM THAT.

RECEIVE IT IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: I THINK THAT

IS A GENERAL WORD FOR MANY

PEOPLE WITH ARTHRITIC

CONDITIONS IN YOUR HANDS.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE, YOU COULDN'T

BUTTON A BUTTON, AND DO IT

NOW.

GOD HAS SET YOU FREE FROM

THAT.

Terry: CURVATURE OF

THE SPINE HEALED RIGHT NOW

IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: LORD, WE

THANK YOU.

WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH

FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR

US, HOW YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE

FOR US.

THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR WHAT

YOU'VE DONE IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED,

WE WANT TO SHARE YOUR GOOD

REPORT.

WE WANT TO LET PEOPLE KNOW

THAT GOD IS IN THE MIRACLE

BUSINESS.

AND WHAT HE DID 2,000

YEARS AGO, HE IS STILL

DOING TODAY.

HE HASN'T CHANGED.

CALL US: 1-800-700-7000.

AND IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE

BELIEVE IN PREVAILING

PRAYER.

THAT'S WHY JESUS TAUGHT

ABOUT IT.

THAT'S WHY HE GAVE THE

PARABLES, TO ENCOURAGE US

TO PRAY AND KEEP ON

PRAYING.

IT IS THAT PERSISTENT

PRAYER THAT GETS AN

ANSWER.

TARA WAS PRAYING AND

PRAYING AND PRAYING AND

PRAYING.

SO DO THAT.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU IF YOU

NEED IT.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US.

WE'D BE GLAD TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

IT IS OUR HONOR AND OR

PRIVILEGE TO DO THAT.

1-800-700-7000.

> COMING UP, WE'RE GOING

TO "BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS, RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WE WANT TO

ANSWER SOME OF THE

QUESTIONS YOU'VE SENT AND

VIA E-MAIL.

THIS FIRST ONE COMES FROM

MCKENNA, WHO SAYS, "I'M

ALMOST 16 YEARS OLD.

WHEN I WAS YOUNGER,

COMPLETE STRANGERS WOULD

WALK UP TO MY MOM AND TELL

HER GOD HAD A SPECIAL PLAN

FOR ME.

I USED TO BE SO CLOSE TO

HIM, AND I WOULD TALK TO

HIM ALL THE TIME.

BUT WHEN I WAS 11, I

REALLY STARTED TO BECOME

DISTANT, AND I LOST MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

I'VE BEEN TO REHAB THREE

TIMES, FOSTER CARE TWICE,

AND I'M THERE CURRENTLY.

AND I'VE BEEN IN MULTIPLE

PLACEMENTS IN MENTAL

HOSPITALS FOR BEHAVIORAL

ISSUES AND SUICIDAL

ATTEMPTS.

I NEED GOD BACK IN MY

LIFE.

I PRAY, BUT I FEEL HE

NEVER LISTENS OR ANSWERS.

HOW CAN I REDEVELOP A

STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH

GOT AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY,

FIND OUT WHAT HIS PLAN FOR

ME IS?"

Gordon: MCKENNA, MY

HEART JUST GOES OUT TO

YOU.

WHEN I'M HEARING THE

QUESTION, I'M WONDERING

WHY YOU'RE IN REHAB AND

WHY YOU'RE IN FOSTER

CARE -- YOU HAVE A MOTHER.

IN TERMS OF YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, YOU

HAVE TO HOLD ON TO THAT,

AND HOLD ON TO THE

PROMISE.

AND IT IS A PROMISE FOR

YOU: I WILL NEVER LEAVE

YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU.

IT IS A DOUBLE PROMISE

THAT HE IS THERE.

HE HASN'T GONE AWAY.

AND YOU CAN BE IN

RELATIONSHIP SOMETIMES

WHERE THEY'RE STILL THERE,

BUT THEY HAVE FORSAKEN

YOU.

AND GOD HAS PROMISED, I

WILL NEVER DO THAT.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR

FORSAKE YOU.

THAT'S A PROMISE FOR YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO HEAR FROM

GOD, THE EASIEST WAY TO DO

IT IS TO OPEN THE BIBLE

AND READ IT.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO

DO THAT DAILY, MULTIPLE

TIMES A DAY.

LET THE WORD OF GOD SHAPE

YOUR THINKING.

SO YOU NO LONGER THINK A

WAY THAT IS CONTRARY TO

SCRIPTURE.

WHEN YOU DO THAT AND YOU

FILL YOUR LIFE WITH THE

WORDS THE PROPHETS, WITH

THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD,

THEN ALL THESE ISSUES FADE

AWAY.

AND YOU'LL START TO HEAR

HIS VOICE AGAIN.

HERE IS A PRAYER FOR YOU,

AND IT'S FROM THE APOSTLE

PAUL.

HE ASKED GOD TO OPEN THE

EYES OF YOUR

UNDERSTANDING.

ASK HIM TO OPEN YOUR EARS

THAT YOU COULD HEAR HIS

WORD.

ASK HIM TO GIVE YOU A

HEART THAT YOU MAY

COMPREHEND THE GREATNESS

OF HIS POWER TOWARDS US

WHO BELIEVE.

PRAY THAT, AND HE WILL

ANSWER.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALM: "A

LORD, MY GOD, I CRIED OUT

TO YOU AND YOU HEALED ME."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
