Gordon: HE HAD THE

PRAISE OF FANS.

TO BE ABLE TO THROW THE

WAY I WAS THROWING WAS SO

MUCH FUN.

I FELT THAT I WOULD ALWAYS

BE ONE OF THE BEST IN THE

WORLD.

Reporter: BUT IT

COULDN'T LAST FOREVER.

GOD, I DON'T KNOW HOW

TO GET OFF.

I NEED SOME HELP HERE.

Andrew: WE SHARE GLEN

WILSON'S STORY ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

WE ALL WANT TO LIVE LONG

AND STRONG, WITH AS MUCH

HEALTH AND WEALTH AS

POSSIBLE.

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO

MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD

ARE ENJOYING LONGER LIVES

THAN EVER BEFORE, BUT AS

THEY AGE, MANY ARE PLAGUED

WITH ILLNESS, UNCERTAINTY,

AND FINANCIAL STRAIN.

DR. MIK MICHAEL ROSEEN IS ONE

OF THE MOST WELL-KNOWN AND

RESPECTED DOCTORS IN

AMERICA.

HE SAYS OUR LIFESTYLE

CHOICE AND BEHAVIORS

DICTATE OUR HEALTH AS WE

GROW OLDER.

IN HIS LATEST BOOK, "AGE

PROOF," HE SHOWS US HOW TO

LIVE BETTE LONGER WITHOUT

RUNNING OUT OF MONEY.

DOCTOR, IT'S GREAT TO HAVE

YOU.

IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE.

Andrew: YOU SAY

HEALTH AND WEALTH, AND WE

NEED TO SHAPE UP IN BOTH

CATEGORIES AT THE SAME

TIME.

WELL, THEY'RE VERY

RELATED.

CAN YOU HAVE HEALTH

WITHOUT WEALTH, MAYBE WHEN

YOU'RE YOUNG, BUT IT TAKES

SOME MONEY, AS YOU GET

OLDER, TO BE ABLE TO STAY

HEALTHY.

AND WEALTH WITHOUT HEALTH,

IT'S NOT GOING TO LAST

BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO

HAVE TO SPEND IT ON YOUR

HEALTH, IF YOU WILL.

THEY'RE VERY INTER-RELATED

INTER-RELATED.

WE WERE DOING A PILOT FOR

A TV SHOW, AND WE FAILED.

IT WAS CALLED "THE

EXPERTS."

Andrew: SORRY ABOUT

THAT, DOCTOR.

ME, TOO.

BUT SHE WAS THE FINANCIAL

EXPERT, AND I WAS THE

HEALTH EXPERT.

THERE WAS A FASHION EXPERT

AND A LEGAL EXPERT, ETC.

AND SHE AND I STARTED TO

LEARN SO MUCH FROM EACH

OTHER DURING THE PILOT.

IT WAS ONLY THREE DAYS,

BUT WE LEARNED AN AWFUL

LOT.

SO SHE CALLED ABOUT TWO

WEEKS LATER AND SAID,

LET'S DO A BOOK TOGETHER

BECAUSE THE SAME CHOICES

YOU MAKE IN HEALTH AND IN

WEALTH KEEP YOU HEALTHY

AND WEALTHY.

Andrew: SO IT IS NOT

A FAILURE BECAUSE NOW YOU

HAVE THIS GREAT BOOK.

DO SOME PEOPLE THINK THIS

IS A LITTLE OVERWHELMING

FOR ME, TO FOCUS ON MY

HEALTH AND MY CHECKBOOK AT

THE SAME TIME.

THAT'S RIGHT.

SO YOU CAN DO THINGS IN

SMALL STEPS AND BUILD.

SHE HAS A FEELING, DON'T

DIET WHILE YOU'RE

CORRECTING YOUR CREDIT

CARD DEBT, AND DON'T

CORRECT YOUR CREDIT CARD

DEBT WHILE YOU'RE DIETING.

BUT IN FACT, THE SAME

BEHAVIORS, THAT IS FIRST

ASSESSING WHAT YOU'RE

DOING, AND THEN AUTOMATING

IT, SO THE CHANGES THAT

YOU MAKE ARE THE SAME FOR

BOTH.

Andrew: BOTH IN OUR

FINANCES AND OUR HEALTH,

ISN'T SOMETIMES THE

ASSESSMENT ONE OF THE

HARDEST PART, FACING THE

REALITIES?

RIGHT.

WE DON'T WANT TO LOOK IN

THE MIRROR.

WE STICK OUR HEADS IN THE

SAND AND WE HOPE THAT

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO

COME OUT OKAY, BOTH FOR

OUR HEALTH AND OUR WEALTH.

WHEN IN FACT, THAT IS THE

WRONG BEHAVIOR.

BECAUSE THE MOST IMPORTANT

THINGS WE WANT AS WE GET

OLDER ARE OUR HEALTH AND

OUR WEALTH.

AND WITH JUST A LITTLE BIT

OF CHANGE EARLIER ON, OR

EVEN LATER ON -- AND

THAT'S THE GREAT NEWS, YOU

CAN MAKE UP FOR LOST

TIME -- IS JUST A LITTLE

BIT OF CHANGE AND GETTING

A LITTLE HELP, YOU CAN BE

BOTH HEALTHY AND WEALTHY

AS YOU GET OLDER.

Andrew: WITH OUR

HEALTH, IS THE BOOK AN

ATTEMPT TO SLOW DOWN THE

AGING PROCESS, STOP THE

AGING PROCESS?

WHAT'S THE GOAL?

THE GOAL IS TO SLOW

DOWN THE AGING PROCESS AS

MUCH AS POSSIBLE, AND TO

MAKE IT SO THAT YOU THRIVE

AS YOU GET OLDER.

BUT IN FACT, THERE IS A

LOT OF DATA, AND WE PUT

SOME OF IT IN THE BOOK --

A LOT OF DATA ON HOW WE

MAY BE ABLE TO REALLY

RADICALLY CHANGE THAT BY

REGENERATING BOTH STEM

CELLS AND THOSE STEM

CELLS, IN FACT, CAUSING US

TO BE ABLE TO REGENERATE

ORGANS AS THOUGH THEY WERE

MUCH YOUNGER.

SO FOR US TO GET VIBRANT.

BUT WHAT WE KNOW NOW, YOU

CAN REALLY SLOW DOWN THE

AGING PROCESS AND BE

VIBRANT MUCH LONGER.

Andrew: WE WANT TO

TALK ABOUT SOME GOALS.

YOUR BOOK MADE ME THINK,

WHEN I'M A GRANDFATHER, I

WANT TO BE RUNNING AROUND

WITH MY GR GRANDKIDS.

WHAT ARE SOME GOALS TO

SET?

THE FIRST THING YOU DO

IS ASSESS YOURSELF AND

SAY, WHERE AM I.

SO I BROUGHT THE GRIP

STRENGTH METER HERE --

Andrew: DO YOU ALWAYS

CARRY THAT AROUND WITH

YOU?

I DON'T.

BUT WHEN YOU ARE ON "THE

700 CLUB," YOU HAVE TO

HAVE FUN THINGS TO HAVE.

SQUEEZE THIS AS HARD AS

YOU CAN.

YOU KNOW, YOU KILLED THE

WOMEN ON THIS SHOW

EARLIER.

Andrew: OH, DID I DO

PRETTY WELL?

YOU DID SENSATIONAL.

Andrew:

SENSATIONAL -- I HAVEN'T

BEEN TOLD THAT IN A LONG

TIME.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR MY

HEALTH?

THE GRIP METER MEANS

SOMETHING IF YOU'RE GOING

TO DIE SOON.

THIS SHOWS THAT YOUR

MUSCLE STRENGTH IN YOUR

GRIP, WHICH IS A KEY

COMPONENT -- WE DON'T KNOW

WHY IT IS SUCH A KEY

COMPONENT IN HOW LONG

YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE -- IT

SHOWS THAT YOU'VE GOT A

LOT MORE YEARS LEFT.

Andrew: SILENT NEWS.

NOW THIS ONE -- THIS IS

THE WAIST TEST.

THIS IS AN ASSESSMENT

AROUND YOUR WAIST.

IT IS JUST LIKE CHECKING

YOUR DEBT.

Andrew: I'M ABOUT A

36.

I'M PROBABLY NOT GOING TO

STAND UP AND PUT THAT

AROUND MY WAIST --

YOU'RE NOT?

Andrew: I DON'T KNOW

IF YOU GUYS ARE READY FOR

THAT.

AT YOUR BELLY BUTTON

WITH YOU SUCKING IN.

Andrew: I CAN SUCK

IN?

YEAH, THAT'S THE GOAL.

PUT IT UNDERNEATH YOUR

JACKET.

THAT'S A LITTLE LOW FOR

YOUR BELLY BUTTON.

Andrew: IT'S GOTTEN

TOO BIG HERE.

CAN YOU SEE IT?

WE DIDN'T REHEARSE.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,

I'VE GOT A VERSION OF IT

THAT IS EVEN MORE FLEXIBLE

THAN THAT.

BUT THIS ON AT -- LET'S

MAKE SURE I'VE GOT IT ON

THE RIGHT SIDE.

Andrew: YOU KNOW

THEY'RE LAUGHING AT ME

BACK IN THE CONTROL ROOM.

THAT'S OKAY.

PUT IT AT YOUR BELLY BOT

TONBUTTON AND NOW TURN

AROUND.

YOU CAN SEE WE DIDN'T

REHEARSE.

KEEP TURNING ALL THE WAY.

SUCK IN.

YOU'RE AT 34.

Andrew: OKAY.

IT TOOK ME TWO MINUTES TO

FIND OUT I'M A 34.

SO FOR GUYS, AGING

DOESN'T HAPPEN UNTIL THEY

GET MORE THAN 37.

IT SHOULD BE HALF YOUR

HEIGHT.

Andrew: I'M SIX FEET

TALL.

SO IT SHOULD BE 36 OR

LESS, AND YOU'RE AT 34.

Andrew: SO I'M DOING

OKAY.

I HAD SOME TROUBLE TURNING

AROUND --

THERE IS BLOOD

PRESSURE --

Andrew: I'M ON BLOOD

PRESSURE MEDICATION.

IT'S A GOOD THING

YOU'RE TAKING IT.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE

YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE HERE.

Andrew: IT WOULD TAKE

AN HOUR.

NO, IT'S A FAST DEVICE.

BUT THE POINT IS THERE ARE

SELF-TESTS IN THE BOOK FOR

BOTH YOUR FINANCES AND

YOUR HEALTH THAT ALLOW YOU

TO ASSESS WHERE YOU ARE.

SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE

TO DO.

Andrew: HOW IMPORTANT

IS STRESS REGARDING YOUR

HEALTH?

WHAT KIND OF TOLL DOES IT

TAKE?

STRESS IS THE GREATEST

AGER, AND FINANCIAL STRESS

IS THE GREATEST STRESS WE

HAVE.

OF THE 13 MAJOR LIFE

STRESSES, EIGHT OF THEM,

BANKRUPTCY, LARGE DEBT,

TAKING ON A NEW MORTGAGE,

BEING FORCED TO MOVE TO A

NEW CITY, ALL OF THE MAJOR

FINANCIAL THINGS THAT

OCCUR IN YOUR LIFE ARE THE

MAJOR STRESSES WE HAVE.

SO THEY'RE VERY IMPORTANT.

FIRST THING, ASSESS WHERE

YOU ARE.

THE SECOND IS FIGURE OUT

HOW TO DO IT

AUTOMATICALLY.

SO PUTTING MONEY IN A 401K

AUTOMATICALLY.

Andrew: SO YOU DON'T

HAVE THAT THINK ABOUT

THINGS.

AND LEARN TO MANAGE

STRESS BECAUSE IT IS SO

IMPORTANT, FROM GETTING

RID OF FINANCIAL STRESS

AND MANAGING YOUR HEALTH.

Andrew: WHAT ABOUT

THE MILLENNIALS THAT SAY,

I DON'T NEED TO WORRY

ABOUT THIS STUFF NOW?

THIS IS DECADES AWAY --

THE EARLIER YOU START,

THE EASIER IT IS.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU START

WHEN YOU'RE 25 SAVING

MONEY WITH YOUR FIRST JOB,

IT COMPOUNDS OVER YOUR

LIFE SPAN, SO IT MAKES IT

MUCH, MUCH EASIER.

NOW, THE FED HAS DONE US A

DISADVANTAGE MAKING IT SO

YOU CAN'T JUST PUT SOME

MONEY IN A SAVINGS BANK,

YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN

EXPERT.

AND ALTHOUGH YOUR FINANCES

AND YOUR MEDICINE WE

CONSIDER PRIVATE, YOU WANT

BUDDIES AND EXPERTS WHO

KNOW HOW TO DO IT SO YOU

CAN COMPOUND MONEY.

Andrew: THIS BOOK IS

A GREAT WAY TO START.

IT IS CALLED "AGE PROOF,"

AND IT IS ALREADY A NEW

YORK BEST-SELLER --

AND IT SHOULD GET A

GREAT BUMP TODAY.

Andrew: ESPECIALLY

AFTER GETTING ME TO STAND

UP AND SPIN AROUND.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US.

THANK YOU.

Andrew: COMING UP,

THE ALL-STAR PLAYER THAT

STRUCK OUT.

THE DOCTORS HANDED ME A

BOTTLE OF PAINKILLERS AND

SAID, YOU NEED TO BE ON

THESE THE REST OF YOUR

DAYS.

AND I'D NEVER BEEN ON

THESE IN MY LIFE.

Andrew: HE WAS THE

PHILADELPHIA PHILLY'S

OUTFIELDER NAMED GLENBO

BECAUSE HE HAD A MACHINE

GUN LIKE A RIGHT ARM.

WHILE HE LOVED THE ROAR OF

THE CROWD, HE EVENTUALLY

LOVED SOMETHING ELSE:

PRESCRIPTION PAINKILLERS.

GLEN WILSON HAD A FLARE

FOR THE DRAMATIC AND THE

FANS LOVED HIM FOR IT.

NUMBER 12, OUTFIELDER

GLEN WILSON.

THERE WAS NO DOUBT.

I TELL PEOPLE ALL OF THE

TIME, THE ONLY REASON I

PLAYED MAJOR LEAGUE

BASEBALL IS I JUST WANTED

ATTENTION.

Andrew: HE IS BEST

KNOWN FOR HIS REMARKABLE

PLAYS FROM RIGHT FIELD.

I FELT THAT I WOULD

ALWAYS BE ONE OF THE BEST

IN THE WORLD.

Andrew: AT TIMES HE

WAS ALSO CALLED UPON TO

PITCH.

HAVING THAT ARM AND

BEING ABLE TO THROW THE

WAY I WAS THROWING WAS SO

MUCH FUN, SO MUCH

EXCITEMENT THAT I COULD

FEEL THE FANS, ESPECIALLY

IN PHILADELPHIA -- THEIR

EXCITEMENT OF SEEING ME

THROW.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

IT BECAME SUCH A GAME

FOR ME INSIDE THE GAME.

Andrew: GLEN'S WIFE,

KIM, REMEMBERS LIFE IN THE

BIG LEAGUES DIFFERENTLY.

CHALLENGING, VERY

CHALLENGING.

YOU KNOW, GLEN WAS SO

PASSIONATE ABOUT BASEBALL,

AND I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO

BE JUST A GREAT JOURNEY,

BUT IT IS LONELINESS,

EMPTINESS -- THEY'RE GONE

ALL THE TIME.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE

THREE BOYS, BUT TWO OF

THEM I RAISED WHILE HE WAS

STILL PLAYING.

Andrew: THERE WAS

SOMETHING ELSE THAT

BOTHERED KIM, GLEN'S

PROFESSED FAITH AS A

CHRISTIAN WAS ONCE BASED

ON CONVENIENCE.

I WAS THAT GUY THAT

ACCEPTED CHRIST AT AGE 16.

AND I USED CHRIST TO MY

ADVANTAGE.

I THOUGHT YOU ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR.

GO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT,

COME BACK AND ASK FOR

FORGIVENESS.

Andrew: GLEN LIVED

THAT WAY FOR YEARS.

HIS CAREER WAS CLOUDEDED

WITH ARGUMENTS WITH

MANAGERS IN THE FRONT

OFFICE.

THEN IN 1993, WHEN GLEN

SUFFERED A BACK INJURY, HE

KNEW IT WAS TIME TO

RETIRE.

THE DAY I WALKED OUT OF

BASEBALL, THE DOCTORS

HANDED ME A BOTTLE OF

PAINKILLERS AND SAID, YOU

NEED TO BE ON THESE THE

REST OF YOUR LIFE.

I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT THEM.

I NEVER DID DRUGS IN MY

LIFE.

Andrew: WITH NO

UNDERSTANDING OF THE

DANGERS OF PAINKILLERS,

GLEN STARTED TAKING

VICODIN DAILY.

HIS BEHAVIOR WAS ERRATIC,

AND AT TIMES HE WAS

IRRATIONAL.

IT GOT TO WHERE I

DIDN'T EVEN WANT TO GO OUT

IN THE PUBLIC.

AND THE ADDICTION STARTED

TO MAKE ME REALIZE I

PROBABLY DON'T NEED TO BE

IN PUBLIC.

Andrew: BY THE END OF

15 YEARS, GLEN WAS TAKING

UPWARDS OF 12 VI 12 VICODIN A

DAY.

THEN ONE DAY WHEN HE AND

HIS WIFE WATCHED A STORY

ON PAINKILLERS, THEY

REALIZED HE WAS ADDICTED.

I GOT ANGRY.

I WENT TO MY DOCTOR THE

NEXT DAY AND I CHEWED HIS

BUTT OUT.

I SAID, I'M NOT A DRUG

ADDICT.

AND I ASKED HIM ONE

QUESTION AFTER I VOICED MY

FRUSTRATION, I SAID, HAVE

YOU EVER HAD ANYBODY JUST

QUIT?

AND HE SAID YEAH.

Andrew: GLEN KNEW HE

WOULD NEED HELP TO

OVERCOME THE ADDICTION, SO

HE WENT HOME AND CRIED OUT

TO GOD.

THIS TIME GLEN MEANT IT.

I SAID, GOD, I DON'T

KNOW HOW TO GET OFF THESE

PILLS.

AND I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING

BUT BASEBALL.

I NEED SOME HELP HERE.

SO I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU

ME, AND YOU DO WHAT YOU

WANT.

AND LO AND BEHOLD, I DID

NOT KNOW WHAT I WAS ASKING

FOR BECAUSE IT BECAME A

JOURNEY AND A RIDE THAT

I'M STILL RIDING TODAY.

Andrew: THAT DAY GLEN

SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST AND FOUND THE

STRENGTH TO END HIS

ADDICTION.

MAN, IT'S REALLY

SIMPLE.

SEEK YEE FIRST THE

KINGDOM, AND ALL THINGS

SHALL BE ADDED UNTO YOU.

THAT'S WHAT I LIVED BY.

SEEK YEE FIRST THE

KINGDOM -- WHAT DOES THAT

MEAN?

SEEK YEE FIRST THE

KINGDOM.

WELL, IT MEANS WHEN YOU

GET UP IN THE MORNING,

START LOOKING FOR GOD

BECAUSE I GUARANTEE UH-HUH

IYOU HEIS GOING TO SHOW UP.

Andrew: GLEN NO

LONGER BATTLES ADDICTION.

KIM SAYS HER PRAYERS HAVE

BEEN ANSWERED.

AMAZING.

HUMBLING.

AND HE LOVES HIS FAMILY.

HE LOVES HIS CHILDREN.

HE'S KIND.

YOU KNOW, HIS JOURNEY HAS

JUST BEEN ABOVE AND

BEYOND.

SHE HAS BEEN A VERY

PATIENT WOMAN BECAUSE

WE'RE ON OUR 33rd YEAR

OF MARRIAGE, WITH THREE

WONDERFUL SONS, A

WONDERFUL DAUGHTER-IN-LAW,

AND NOW WE'RE GRANDPARENTS

TO THE MOST GORGEOUS

LITTLE GIRL I'VE EVER

SEEN.

Andrew: IT'S BEEN

YEARS SINCE GLEN WAS IN

THE SPOTLIGHT, IMPRESSING

THE BASEBALL WORLD WITH

HIS TREMENDOUS RIGHT ARM.

HE IS OKAY WITH THAT

BECAUSE HE NO LONGER NEEDS

THE ATTENTION.

HE IS COMFORTABLE WITH WHO

HE IS IN CHRIST.

WHEN YOU ACCEPT JESUS

CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR,

CHRIST COMES TO LIVE

INSIDE OF YOU, AND YOU'RE

A NEW CREATION.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE

EXCEPT EVERYTHING?

IF YOU DON'T TRY GOD OVER

THAT ADDICTION.

Andrew: I HAD A

WONDERFUL DAY WITH GLEN,

INTERVIEWING HIM, AND HE

IS SUCH A GREAT GUY.

PERHAPS YOU'RE LIKE ME,

AND YOU'RE STRUCK BY THE

FACT OF THE SIMPLICITY OF

HIS PRAYER.

HE SAID, GOD, ALL I KNOW

IS BASEBALL, AND NOW I'M

IN TROUBLE.

AND HE SAID, I NEED SOME

HELP HERE.

AND, LORD, I'M GOING TO

TURN IT OVER TO YOU.

AND YOU TAKE MY LIFE.

AND YOU SAW GLEN'S

REACTION THERE AS TO WHAT

GOD DID FOR GLEN.

IT BLEW HIM AWAY.

HIS BONDAGE TO ADDICTION

WAS BROKEN BECAUSE GLEN

DIDN'T LEAN ON HIS OWN

UNDERSTANDING.

HE TRUSTED IN THE LORD

WITH HIS WHOLE HEART.

HE ACKNOWLEDGED THE LORD,

AND THE LORD DIRECTED HIS

PATH, PROVERBS 3, 5, AND

6.

SOMETIMES WE TRY TO USE

OUR OWN SMARTS, OR

INSTINCT TO GET OUT OF A

SITUATION, WHEN WHAT WE

REALLY NEED IS THE RESCUE

OF JESUS CHRIST.

AND THE WISDOM OF GOD.

AND A SIMPLE PRAYER FROM

GLEN WILSON TO THE LORD

ACKNOWLEDGING HIS NEED FOR

GOD RESULTED IN A CHANGED

LIFE.

AND IF YOU'RE IN A PLACE

IN YOUR LIFE WHERE YOU

SAY, JUST LIKE GLEN, LORD,

I'M IN TROUBLE HERE AND I

NEED YOU, THE LORD WILL

RESPOND.

LET'S DO THAT NOW.

IF YOU'RE IN THAT

SITUATION, WE CAN TURN IT

OVER TO HIM.

FATHER GOD, YOU KNOW MY

NEED.

YOU KNOW THE CONDITION OF

MY LIFE.

YOU KNOW THE CONDITION OF

MY HEART.

YOU KNOW MY SIN PROBLEM

BECAUSE I'M FLESH AND

BONES AND I SIN.

AND, FATHER, JUST LIKE

GLEN WILSON DID, I'M

ASKING YOU TO TAKE THIS

WRECKED LIFE, THE THINGS

I'VE CREATED IN MY

CIRCUMSTANCES, LORD, AND

FIRST I ASK YOU TO CHANGE

MY HEART, BECAUSE I KNOW

THAT'S WHAT IS DEAREST TO

YOU, FATHER, CHANGE MY

HEART.

LORD, AS MY CIRCUMSTANCES

BEGIN TO CHANGE AND YOU

LIGHT MY PATH, FATHER GOD,

I PRAY THAT I SEE

REVELATION FROM THE HOLY

SPIRIT OF YOUR LOVE FOR

ME, FATHER.

I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU ON

THIS DAY IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

AMEN.

AND IF YOU'D LIKE SOMEONE

TO PRAY WITH YOU MORE

ABOUT YOUR SPECIFIC

SITUATION, WE WOULD LOVE

TO PRAY WITH YOU.

YOU CAN CALL US AT

1-800-700-7000.

> WELL, SHE'S THE

AUSTRALIAN PASTOR WHO SEES

MIRACLES HAPPEN WHEREVER

SHE GOES.

AND KATHRYN SAYS ALL OF US

CAN LIVE IN THE

MIRACULOUS, TOO.

HI, I'M KATHRYN.

THE BIBLE SAYS IN HEBREWS

13: 8: THAT JESUS CHRIST

IS THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

AND TODAY HE IS STILL

DOING MIRACLES.

I'VE SEEN A LITTLE

6-YEAR-OLD GIRL COMPLETELY

PROFOUNDLY DEAF GETTING

HER HEARING FOR THE VERY

FIRST TIME AS THE SPIRIT

OF JESUS TOUCHED HER.

A LADY CAME TO PRAY WHO

HAD LEUKEMIA.

AND SHE SAID SHE FELT THE

HOLY SPIRIT JUST MOVE

THROUGH HER.

WHEN SHE WENT BACK TO THE

DOCTOR A FEW DAYS LATER,

THEY DISCOVERED SHE HAD

COMPLETELY NORMAL BLOOD.

THERE WAS NO TRACE OF

CANCER IN HER SYSTEM.

ONE LADY WE PRAYED FOR HAD

A SIX-INCH TUMOR, AND THE

HOLY SPIRIT TOUCHED HER

AND DELIVERED HER.

JESUS SO WANTED US TO

UNDERSTAND HOW GOOD THE

FATHER IS.

THAT'S WHY HE DID SO MANY

MIRACLES, AND THAT'S WHY

HE IS DOING THESE THINGS

TODAY.

JESUS EXPLAINS WHAT THE

FATHER IS LIKE WHEN HE

SHARED THE PARABLE OF THE

PRODIGAL SON.

THAT SON CAME HOME BEING

BROKE, AND TO HIS

SURPRISE, THE FATHER RAN

TO HIM THE MOMENT HE COULD

SEE HIM.

WRAPPED HIS ARMS AROUND

HIM, KISSED HIM, AND

EMBRACED HIM AND RESTORED

EVERYTHING TO HIM.

THIS KIND OF LOVE IS NOT

HUMAN.

IT IS SUPERNATURAL, AND IT

IS THE LOVE THAT GOD HAS

FOR US TODAY.

EVERY TIME YOU COME TO HIM

IN FAITH, THE FATHER IS

RUNNING TO YOU TO WRAP

THIS ARMS AROUND YOU AND

TO LOVE YOU.

JESUS CAME AND HE

SACRIFICED HIS LIFE.

HE DIED AND HE ROSE AGAIN

SO THAT IF YOU'LL COME TO

HIM WITH YOUR SIN, WITH

YOUR SHAME, AND EXCHANGE

IT IN FAITH FOR HIS MERCY

AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, YOU

CAN BE IN RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD BECAUSE THAT'S

HIS HIGHEST DESIRE, THAT

YOU WOULD KNOW HIM AND

EXPERIENCE HIS GREAT LOVE

FOR YOU.

RESPOND TO THE SAVIOR

TODAY.

HE IS WAITING FOR YOU.

Andrew: AMEN,

KATHRYN.

WE CAN SEE THE LOVE OF

JESUS IN YOUR EYES.

CHECK OUT LUKE 15, THAT IS

THE STORY SHE WAS SPEAKING

ABOUT AS WE SEE THE LOVE

GOD HAS FOR US.

READ IT AS OFTEN YOU CAN.

IT IS A WONDERFUL REMINDER

OF THE LOVE GOD HAS FOR

US.

> COMING UP, A MAN

SUFFERS EXCRUCIATING PAIN

AFTER CANCER SURGERY.

FROM THE DAY I LEFT THE

HOSPITAL, I HAD SHARP

PAINS, BURNING, AND

SPASMS.

IF YOU KNOW WHAT A CHARLIE

HORSE FEELS LIKE IN YOUR

LEG, IMAGINE THAT DEEP

INSIDE YOUR CHEST.

AND THEY WOULD GO ON FOR

THREE TO FIVE MINUTES.

Andrew: WOW.

WE'RE GOING TO SEE HOW

THIS MAN'S PAIN VANISHED

IN AN INSTANT.

THAT'S WHEN WE COME BACK.

Andrew: JOSEPH HAD

FACED CANCER ONCE ALREADY,

AND THEN IT RETURNED WITH

A VENGEANCE.

THE RADICAL SURGERY LEFT

HIM IN TREMENDOUS PAIN AND

AT THE LOWEST POINT OF HIS

LIFE.

JOSEPH MARKS IS A RETIRED

NAVY MAN, HUSBAND, AND

FATHER.

IN 2013, HE WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH ESOPHGREE ESOPHAGEAL CANCER AND

WAS SUCCESSFULLY TREATED

WITH CHEMO AND RADIATION.

BUT WHEN IT RETURNED, THE

ONLY OPTION WAS SURGERY.

IT ATTACKS YOUR FAITH

IN A WAY YOU COULD NEVER

IMAGINE.

THIS THING COULD KILL ME.

Andrew: THE TUMOR WAS

REMOVED, BUT WHEN

COMPLICATIONS FOLLOWED,

THE ONLY RECOURSE WAS TO

IMPLANT A STINT IN HIS

ESOPHAGUS TO TRY TO HEAL

THE DAMAGE.

FROM THE DAY I LEFT THE

HOSPITAL, I HAD SHARP

PAINS, BURNING SPASMS.

IF YOU KNOW WHAT A CHARLIE

HORSE FEELS LIKE IN YOUR

LEG, IMAGINE THAT DEEP

INSIDE YOUR CHEST.

AND THAT WOULD GO ON FOR

THREE TO FIVE MINUTES.

THESE MUSCLES ARE

EXPANDING AND THE NERVES

ARE DAMAGED, AND IT WAS

THE MOST EXCRUCIATING PAIN

IN MY LIFE.

I CAN'T EVEN BRING MYSELF

TO FEED MYSELF.

EVERY TWO TO THREE MINUTES

I'M GOING INTO A SPASM.

THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO.

I HAVE TO GUT THIS THING

OUT.

I WILL SAY I'VE NEVER BEEN

IN DISPAIR IN MY LIFE, BUT

THIS WAS PROBABLY THE

LOWEST POINT OF MY ENTIRE

LIFE.

Andrew: ONE MORNING

JOSEPH TURNED ON THE

TELEVISION AND BEGAN

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

I'M DESPERATE, AND I

NEED SOMEBODY TO PRAY FOR

ME.

I'M ON MY KNEES, I'VE GOT

MY HANDS OUT, AND I'M

JUST, LIKE, LORD, PLEASE

HEAR MY CRY.

AND THERE IS PAT, AND HE

GOES, THERE IS SOMEBODY

THAT HAS LIKE TUMORS IN

THE ESOPHAGUS.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT

TUMORS IN YOUR ESOPHAGUS,

AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU

BURNED IT OR IT IS A

FUNGUS, BUT THEY'RE

TUMORS.

WHEN HE SAID THAT, I

SAID, THERE I IS THE ANSWER

TO MY PRAYER.

GOD IS ANSWERING IT.

IT IS HAPPENING SO QUICK.

Pat: RIGHT NOW YOU'LL

FEEL LIKE A HOT BREATH OF

AIR IS JUST BURNING

THROUGH YOUR ESOPHAGUS,

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

I FELT WARM ALL OVER MY

BODY, NOT JUST IN HERE.

I FELT THE PRESENCE OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON ME.

AND I WAS JUST WEEPING AND

WEEPING LIKE I HAVEN'T

WEPT, I THINK, EVER.

BUT IT WAS JOY BECAUSE IT

WAS A MOMENT OF

DELIVERANCE.

AND ONCE HE GOT DONE, THE

PAIN WAS GONE.

THAT WAS IT.

NO MORE SPASMS.

Andrew: JOSEPH HAS

BEEN PAIN-FREE EVER SINCE.

THE STINT WAS REMOVED, AND

10 MONTHS AFTER SURGERY,

THERE IS NO SIGN OF

CANCER.

HE HAS RETURNED TO HIS

ACTIVE LIFESTYLE WITH A

GRATEFUL HEART AND A

NEWFOUND PEACE.

I SEE HOW GOD HAS DONE

SOME THINGS IN MY HEART,

AND THAT'S WHAT I'VE

LEARNED, IS THAT -- THE

HEBREW WORD IS SHALOM,

THAT SENSE OF NOT JUST

HAVING PEACE IN YOUR LIFE,

BUT IT IS A DEEPNESS OF

UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR

WELL-BEING, WHERE YOUR

STANDING IS WITH THE LORD.

I DON'T HAVE CANCER, I'M

FEELING BETTER, AND I

START SEEING SOME FUTURE

TO MY LIFE AGAIN, I MEAN,

HOW MUCH MORE BLESSED CAN

YOU BE?

Andrew: DID YOU HEAR

JOSEPH?

HE SAID, I WAS DESPERATE,

AND I NEEDED SOMEONE TO

PRAY WITH ME.

IT IS MY PRIVILEGE TO DO

THAT WITH YOU NOW.

WHATEVER YOUR CRISIS IS,

WHATEVER YOUR MEDICAL

PROBLEM IS, FOR ALL OF US

WATCHING, WE CAN PRAY

TOGETHER AND LIFT EACH

OTHER UP.

FATHER GOD, WE ARE SO

GRATEFUL WE CAN COME

BEFORE YOU, THAT WE HAVE

ACCESS TO YOU, LORD,

THROUGH YOUR SON JESUS

CHRIST.

IT IS IN HIS NAME WE PRAY.

IT IS IN HIS NAME, THE

NAME OF JESUS, WE SEEK

HEALING.

FATHER, WE ARE TIRED OF

CANCER, WE ARE TIRED OF

ENDURING CANCER, WE'RE

TIRED OF OUR LOVED ONES

HAVING CANCER AND FACING

IT SOMETIMES AGAIN AND

AGAIN.

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME,

WE REBUKE CANCER CELLS IN

JESUS' NAME.

FOR ALL OF THOSE WATCHING

WHO HAVE CANCER RIGHT NOW,

FATHER GOD WE BELIEVE IN

YOUR HEALING POWER, AND WE

BUC THREBUKE THE ENEMY NOW, WE

REBUKE CANCER NOW.

BY YOUR STRIPES WE ARE

HEALED.

WE TRUST YOU JESUS, AND WE

LOVE YOU.

AND WE TAKE AUTHORITY OVER

SICKNESS AND ILLNESS AND

DISEASE IN THE NAME OF

JESUS CHRIST.

BECAUSE, LORD, YOU'VE

GIVEN US AUTHORITY BECAUSE

OF THE WORK OF JESUS ON

THE CROSS AND HIS

RESURRECTION POWER.

AND WE DECLARE HEALING AND

VICTORY NOW IN JESUS'

PRECIOUS NAME.

AMEN.

I WANT TO REMIND YOU TO

CONTINUE TO CALL IF YOU

NEED PRAYER:

1-800-700-7000.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH

PHILIPPIANS 1: 6: "I'M

SURE OF THIS, HE WHO BEGAN

A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL

BRING IT TO COMPLETION AT

THE DAY OF JESUS CHRIST."

THANKS FOR JOINING US

TODAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
