Wendy: COMING

UP...THE BREAKOUT STAR

FROM THE HIT MOVIE "WAR

ROOM."

THE TEENAGED ACTRESS AND

AUTHOR OF "THE FACE GIRLS"

JOINS US LIVE.

AND THEN...ONE ADDICT

FINDS A NEW HOME IN A

CRACK HOUSE.

WHY AM I HERE?

AM I HERE TO DIE?

Wendy: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: HEY, IT IS GOOD

TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

AFTER MONTHS OF LOOKING

INTO RUSSIAN INFLUENCE ON

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,

CONGRESSIONAL

INVESTIGATORS ARE NOW

LOOKING SOMEWHERE ELSE.

GUESS WHAT?

FORMER F.B.I. DIRECTOR

JAMES COMEY.

THEY'LL BE TRYING TO

FIGURE OUT IF HE

MISHANDLED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION IN HIS MEMOS,

WHICH HE WANTED TO GET

LEAKED TO THE "NEW YORK

TIMES".

Wendy: AND THERE ARE

NEW DETAILS ABOUT THE

MEETING BETWEEN PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S SON AND A RUSSIAN

LAWYER JUST BEFORE THE

ELECTION.

ERIC GONZALES BRINGS US

THIS STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS AGAIN ON THE

DEFENSIVE, FOLLOWING A NEW

YORK TIMES REPORT THAT

DONALD TRUMP, JR. WAS

INFORMED IN AN E-MAIL THAT

DAMAGING INFORMATION ABOUT

HILLARY CLINTON WAS PART

AND AN EFFORT TO HELP HIS

FATHER'S CAMPAIGN.

AT THE MEETING WAS PAUL

MANAFORT AND TRUMP'S

SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER.

AND THE MEETING TOOK PLACE

AT TRUMP TOWER, WITH THE

RUSSIAN LAWYER LINKED TO

THE KREMLIN.

ACCORDING TO TRUMP, JR.,

SHE WAS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO

I WAS TOLD MIGHT HAVE

INFORMATION HELPFUL TO THE

CAMPAIGN.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

THAT THE PUBLIC HAS SEEN

CLEAR EVIDENCE OF SENIOR

LEVEL MEMBERS OF THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN MEETING WITH

RUSSIANS TO TRY TO OBTAIN

INFORMATION THAT MIGHT

HURT THE CAMPAIGN OF

HILLARY CLINTON.

Reporter: IN THE

PAST, THE PRESIDENT'S SON

DENIED HAVING ANY CONTACT

WITH RUSSIANS ABOUT THE

CAMPAIGN.

THE WHITE HOUSE DEPUTY

PRESS SECRETARY SARAH

SANDERS SAID THE CAMPAIGN

NEVER FOLLOWED UP ON THE

MEETING, AND NEITHER

TRUMP, JR. NOR THE

CAMPAIGN EVER COLLUDED

WITH ANYONE TO INFLUENCE

THE ELECTION.

DONALD TRUMP, JR.'S LAWYER

RELEASED A STATEMENT,

SAYING THIS IS MUCH ADO

ABOUT NOTHING.

BUT A NEW REPORT REVEALS

FOUR OF THE SEVEN MEMOS

THAT JAMES COMEY WROTE

CONTAINED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION.

IT UNDER CUTS HIS CLAIM

DURING THE SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

LAST MONTH THAT HE

BELIEVED THAT THE

INFORMATION IN THE MEMOS

WAS UNCLASSIFIED.

I UNDERSTOOD THIS TO BE

MY RECOLLECTION RECORD OF

MY CONVERSATION WITH THE

PRESIDENT.

I FELT IT IMPORTANT TO GET

IT OUT.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE

SHARED THE MEMOS WITH A

LAW PROFESSOR, WHO THEN

SHARED THE MEMOS WITH

REPORTERS.

COMEY'S ACTION RAISED THE

POSSIBILITY THAT HE BROKE

HIS OWN AGENCY'S RULES,

AND BROKE THE PROTOCOLS HE

PUBLICLY CRITICIZED

HILLARY CLINTON FOR,

REGARDING HER DECISION TO

KEEP CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS

AFTER LEAVING THE STATE

DEPARTMENT IN 2013.

HOWEVER, COMEY'S FRIEND

DISAGREES.

DANIEL RICKMAN TOLD CBN

NEWS NEWS, JIM COMEY NEVER

GAVE ME A MEMO THAT WAS

CLASSIFIED.

THE MEMO I PASSED ON TO

THE TIMES HAS NEVER TO BE

MY KNOWLEDGE BE BE BEEN

CLASSIFIED.

MEMBERS THAT WENT TO

CONGRESS AND NOT ME MAY

WELL HAVE BEEN CLASSIFIED.

PRESIDENT TRUMP RESPONDED

BY TWEETING: "JAMES COMEY

LEAKED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION TO THE MEDIA.

THAT IS SO ILLEGAL."

NOW CONGRESSIONAL

INVESTIGATORS WILL LOOK

INTO COMEY'S MEMOS, TRYING

TO FIND OUT WHERE AND HOW

THEY WERE WRITTEN, AND

WHEN THE GOVERNMENT

DECIDED THAT THE MEMOS

CONTAINED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION, BEFORE OR

AFTER COMEY SHARED THEM.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Pat: JAY SEKULOW IS

WITH US NOW, AND HE IS A

MEMBER OF TRUMP'S LEGAL

TEAM.

JAY, WHAT IS THE UPSHOT OF

ALL OF THIS?

IS ANYBODY FINDING

ANYTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE?

NO.

WELL, ONE THING OF

SIGNIFICANCE, JAMES COMEY

LEAKED INFORMATION.

ORIGINALLY THOUGHT IT WAS

ONE MEMO, AND NOW WE KNOW

IT IS FOUR MEMOS.

IT IS CERTAINLY THE

GOVERNMENT'S POSITION NOW

THAT THIS WAS GOVERNMENT

MATERIAL.

JAMES COMEY TESTIFIED

THESE WERE HIS -- HE

CALLED THEM RECOLLECTION

OF HIS PRIVATE INFORMATION

RECORDED, BUT THE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE HAS

TAKEN THE POSITION THIS IS

IN FACT GOVERNMENT

MATERIAL.

HE THEN LEAKED GOVERNMENT

MATERIAL TO A THIRD PARTY,

WHO THEN LEAKED IT TO THE

"NEW YORK TIMES".

AND THAT'S A CRIME.

AND, BY THE WAY, FOUR OF

THE SEVEN DOCUMENTS THAT

WERE RELEASED, THESE NOTES

OF JAMES COMEY, REPORTEDLY

NOW HAVE CONTAINED

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

WELL, HE ALSO GAVE FOUR OF

THESE MEMOS TO THIS

PROFESSOR.

ORIGINALLY, EVERYBODY

THOUGHT IT WAS ONE.

HERE IS THE REAL

PROBLEM -- THIS IS WHAT IS

SO INTERESTING AS A

LAWYER: YOU'VE GOT A

SITUATION NOW WHERE THE

BASES UPON WHICH A SPECIAL

COUNSEL WAS PUT FORWARD --

JAMES COMEY SAYS I GAVE

THIS INFORMATION TO MY

FRIEND TO LEAK IT FOR THE

PURPOSE OF GETTING A

SPECIAL COUNSEL.

HE GOT A SPECIAL COUNSEL

IN A SENSE BECAUSE OF THE

MEMOS THAT HE ILLEGALLY

LEAKED ON CONVERSATIONS HE

HAD WITH THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

TO ME THAT UNDERCUTS THIS

ESPECIALLY COUNSEL PROBE.

IT IS BASED ON ILLEGALLY

LEAKED INFORMATION.

I DON'T THINK A LOT OF

PEOPLE ARE DRAWING THAT

ANALYSIS RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE LOOKING AT IT

LEGALLY.

YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT IT

LEGALLY.

YOU HAVE ILLEGALLY LEAKED

INFORMATION THAT SERVED AS

A BASES FOR SPECIAL

COUNSEL TO BE APPOINTED.

IF THAT SEEMS TO BE OKAY,

IT'S NOT.

Pat: JAY, WHAT ARE

THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

RULES HAVING TO DO WITH

THE PROPRIETY -- THE

EVIDENCE OF IMPROPRIETY?

HAVE THEY VIOLATED THAT --

SURE.

CAN YOU IMAGINE IF AN

F.B.I. AGENT WAS

CONDUCTING AN INFORMATION,

AND HE GETS FIRED, AND HE

FILLS OUT A FORM 302,

BASICALLY WHAT JAMES COMEY

DID, NOTES OF A MEETING.

AND THIS WAS THE PRESIDENT

OF THE UNITED STATES.

AND LEAKED THEM AFTER HE

GOT TERMINATED FROM HIS

F.B.I. POSITION TO THE

PRESS.

WHAT WOULD BE HAPPENING TO

THAT F.B.I. AGENT?

HE WOULD BE VISITED BY

OTHER F.B.I. AGENTS, AND A

CASE WOULD BE BROUGHT

AGAINST HIM FOR LEAKING

GOVERNMENT INFORMATION.

AND IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE

CLASSIFIED TO BE A CRIME.

SO THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE --

YOU HAVE TO REALIZE WHAT

HAPPENED HERE.

SO THAT WHOLE BASIS OF THE

TRANSACTION ON THE JAMES

COMEY SIDE OF THIS WAS

SUSPECT FROM THE

BEGINNING.

IT WAS MULTIPLE MEMOS.

THOSE MEMOS MAY WELL HAVE

CONTAINED CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION.

THE PROTEST CONTRARY TO

THE LAW PROFESSOR FRIEND

OF HIS -- WELL, REALLY?

THAT'S THE BASIS UPON

WHICH WE'RE FEELING OKAY

ABOUT THIS?

ASK YOURSELF THIS

QUESTION: WHY IS IT OKAY

THAT JAMES COMEY LEAKED

CONVERSATIONS HE HAD WITH

THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES TO ANYBODY,

LET ALONE ULTIMATELY TO

THE "NEW YORK TIMES"?

WHY IS THAT OKAY?

IT'S NOT.

Pat: ALAN DERSHOWITZ

SAYS THERE IS NO WAY A

PRESIDENT CAN OBSTRUCT

JUSTICE SINCE HE IS THE

ULTIMATE ARBITOR.

CAN THERE BE OBSTRUCTION

OF JUSTICE BY A PRESIDENT

IN THE CASE THEY'RE

TALKING ABOUT, LIKE COMEY

SAID, HE IS GOING TO HAVE

IT REFERRED TO THE SPECIAL

COUNSEL?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

THINK ABOUT WHAT WOULD BE

HAPPENING.

IF THERE WAS, IN FACT,

CHARGES BEING MADE OR --

REMEMBER, THE PRESIDENT

RECEIVED INFORMATION THAT

JAMES COMEY WAS NO LONGER

CAPABLE OF LEADING THE

F.B.I. AND THAT THEY

NEEDED NEW LEADERSHIP IN

THERE.

THE PRESIDENT TOOK ACTION,

AND DECIDED TO TERMINATE

JAMES COMEY'S POSITION AS

DIRECTOR OF THE F.B.I.

HE HAS THE CONSTITUTIONAL

RIGHT TO DO JUST THAT, AND

HE DID JUST THAT.

YOU CANNOT BE PROSECUTED

FOR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

FOR EXERCISING A

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT THAT

VESTS IN THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

PERIOD.

AND THAT SHOULD BE THE END

OF THAT DISCUSSION.

THERE IS NO WAY, UNDER

THESE FACTS THAT HAVE BEEN

ALLEGED AND ASSERTED, THAT

THIS COULD CONSTITUTE AN

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.

IF THAT WAS THE CASE, ANY

TIME THE PRESIDENT FIRED

ANYBODY, YOU COULD BRING

AN OBSTRUCTION CASE.

THE PRESIDENT EXERCISED

HIS RIGHT, AND HE HAD THE

CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO DO

IT.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT

TRUMP, JR.?

HAVE YOU GOTTEN ANY IN

SIGHT ON THAT, AS TO WHAT

THEY'RE CHARGING HIM WITH?

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO

CHARGE HIM WITH, HAVING A

MEETING WITH SOMEBODY TO

GET OPPOSITION RESEARCH ON

AN OPPOSING CANDIDATE?

YOU RAN FOR PRESIDENT.

THAT HAPPENS.

PEOPLE HAVE MEETINGS.

THEY'RE TRYING TO MAKE

THIS SOME KIND OF RUSSIAN

INTERFERENCE.

EVERYBODY IGNORES THAT THE

UKRAINIANS WERE WORKING

WITH HILLARY CLINTON.

THAT GETS A PASS.

SO A MEETING WITH A LAWYER

FROM RUSSIA, WHO SAID

PURPORTEDLY THAT SHE HAD

INFORMATION ABOUT

OPPOSITION RESEARCH ON

HILLARY CLINTON, AND IT

ENDS UP NOT BEING THE

CASE, BY THE WAY.

THERE IS NO ILLEGALITY IN

THE MEETING.

AND THERE WAS NO FOLLOWUP

AND NO ACTION TAKEN.

IT IS A BIT OF A MEDIA

FRENZY, BUT IF YOU GET

PAST THE FRENZY AND LOOK

AT WHAT THE FACTS ARE,

WHAT'S THE ILLEGALITY?

I KEEP SAYING THAT WITH

COLLUSION, ALL OF THIS

COLLUSION THEY'RE

ALLEGING.

COLLUSION IS NOT A CRIME,

FIRST OF ALL.

NO, THIS IS NOT A CRIME.

A MEETING WITH AN

INDIVIDUAL WHO HAD

OPPOSITION RESEARCH ON A

CANDIDATE, AND THIS

PARTICULAR LAWYER HAPPENS

TO BE THE RUSSIAN, DOES

THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN

CHANGE THE RULES?

NO.

YOU RAN FOR PRESIDENT,

KNOW HOW OPPOSITION

RESEARCH WORKS.

Pat: YOU HAVE A WHOLE

DEPARTMENT THAT MAKES

HOLES IN THE OPPOSITION TO

EXPLOIT THEM FOR YOUR

BENEFIT IN A CAMPAIGN.

JAY, WE HAVE TREMENDOUS

PROBLEMS FACING OUR

NATION.

WE'VE GOT DEBT PROBLEMS.

WE HAVE TRADE PROBLEMS.

WE HAVE PROBLEMS WITH

NORTH KOREA.

WHEN IS THIS STUFF GOING

TO END?

I THINK THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE ARE SICK OF HEARING

ABOUT RETURN INVOLVEMENT

IN AN ELECTION THAT HAS

LONG PASSED.

CAN THEY SHUT IT DOWN

EVER?

THIS THING NEEDS TO BE

DONE QUICKLY.

OUR GOAL, AS ONE OF THE

PRESIDENT'S LAWYERS, IS TO

GET THIS MATTER OVER WITH.

AGAIN, AT THIS POINT, LET

ME JUST BE VERY CLEAR

HERE: THERE IS NO WAY AN

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

CHARGE CAN BE BROUGHT

AGAINST THE PRESIDENT FOR

EXERCISING HIS ARTICLE 2

POWER.

THAT'S NUMBER ONE.

NUMBER TWO, YOU RAISE THE

ISSUE -- LET'S TALK ABOUT

A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE,

NORTH KOREA.

THIS IS A REALLY SERIOUS

ISSUE THAT THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE ARE FACING AND THE

PRESIDENT IS HAVING TO

DEAL WITH.

SO ANY OF THESE THINGS

LAYING OVER THE PRESIDENT

IN ANY WAY BECOMES A BIT

OF A DISTRACTION, EVEN FOR

OUR ENEMIES.

OUR PRESIDENT IS FOCUSED

ON MULTIPLE ISSUES,

FOCUSED LIKE A LASER BEAM

ON THEM.

BUT, YES, I DON'T LIKE THE

FACT OR THINK IT IS GOOD

FOR THE UNITED STATES TO

HAVE THIS HANGING AROUND.

THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN

VERY CLEAR, AS HAS THOSE

INDIVIDUALS THAT HAVE BEEN

CONTACTED, THAT THEY'LL

PARTICIPATE WHEN THEY NEED

TO PARTICIPATE.

RIGHT NOW THERE IS NO

INVESTIGATION ON THE

PRESIDENT.

WE ARE NOT NOTIFIED OF ANY

INVESTIGATION OF THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES, PERIOD.

Pat: JAY, I

APPRECIATE YOUR WORK.

THE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO

HAVE GOOD SPIRITS.

HE JUST KEEPS ON PLUGGING.

HE IS AN AMAZING MAN.

YEAH.

HE IS DOING THIS JOB.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU, SIR.

Pat: WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, WE'LL

TAKE YOU TO THE TOMB OF

THE JEWISH PATRIARCH,

WHICH THE UNITED NATIONS

HAS NOW DECLARED AS

PALESTINIAN TERRITORY.

ISRAEL'S REACTION, COMING

UP.

Efrem: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

ISRAEL IS REACTING ANGERLY

TO A DECISION FROM UNESCO.

IT DECLARED THE CAVE OF

THE PATRIARCHS, ABE ABRAHAM,

ISAAC, AND JACOB TO BE

PALESTINIANS TERRITORY.

THEY SAY THE DECISION

IGNORES THE BIBLE AND

4,000 YEARS OF JEWISH

HISTORY.

Chris: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU READ FROM THE

BOOK OF GENESIS AT THE

WEEKLY CABINET MEETING.

Through Translator:

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE

JEWISH PEOPLE AND HEBRON,

AND THE TOMB OF THE

PATRIARCHS IS ONE OF

PURCHASE AND OF HISTORY,

WHICH MAY BE WITHOUT

PARALLEL IN THE HISTORY OF

THE PEOPLES.

Chris: IT GOES BACK

TO THE BOOK OF GENESIS.

THE BIBLE SAYS THAT

ABRAHAM BOUGHT THIS FIELD

FOR 40 400 SHEKELS AND BURIED

HIS WIFE THERE.

ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB

AND THEIR WIVES WERE

BURIED THERE 4,000 YEARS

BEFORE ISLAM WAS FOUNDED.

Through Translator:

IT DID NOT PREVENT THEM

FROM GIVING ANOTHER

RESOLUTION, AND DECLARING

IT AS A PALESTINIAN SITE.

Chris: THEY SAID THEY

WOULD CUT $1 MILLION FROM

IT DUES AND USE TO

ESTABLISH A JEWISH HERS

HERITAGE.

ISSAC WRITER IS AN EXPERT.

IT CLAIMS THE OWNERSHIP

AND SOVEREIGNTY ON THE

PATRIARCHS AND ALSO ON

HEBRON.

AND THE OTHER ONE IS TO

PREVENT ISRAELIS FROM

TAKING OVER MORE SPACE IN

THE SITE.

Chris: KING HARROD

BUILT THE STRUCTURE OVER

THE CAVE 2,000 YEARS AGO.

YOU CAN TELL BY THE UNIQUE

ARCHITECTURAL STYLE.

1200 YEARS LATER, THEY

MODIFIED THE STRUCTURE AND

ADDED THE MINARETS.

THEY NOW CONSIDER IT THE

alal-KAED IBRAHIMI MOSQUE.

HEHEBRON'S DEPUTY MAYOR SAYS

HE WOULD CHANGE THA THAT, THAT

EVERYBODY CAN PRAY THAT.

WE WOULD DO ALL OF OUR

EFFORTS AND EVERYTHING WE

CAN IN ORDER TO RETURN

THIS PLACE TO BEING A

MOSQUE FOR MUSLIM PRAYERS

ONLY.

Chris: SOME BELIEVE

THE UNESCO VOTE IS JUST

ONE MORE BATTLE VOTE IN A

CAMPAIGN TO ERASE ANY

JEWISH TIES TO THE LAND OF

THE BIBLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

THE TOMB OF THE

PATRIARCHS, HEB BRONS.

Efrem: ONE ISRAELI

PUBLICATION SAYS THIS IS A

REWRITE OF HISTORY AND THE

BIBLE.

Pat: WELL, IT JUST

STAYS THAT WAY.

THE ARABS AND THE

PALESTINIANS LIVE IN A

FANTASY WORLD.

I'VE GONE OVER THERE.

I WAS DRIVING ON THE WAY

TO INTERVIEW YASSER

ARAFAT, AND IT WAS LATE AT

NIGHT.

AND WE WENT BY THE TOMB OF

RACHEL.

AND THIS MAN SAID THIS IS

ONE OF THE HOLY SITES OF

ISLAM.

AND I SAID, YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT THE WIFE OF ISRAEL.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

ISLAM?

THAT'S THE WAY THEY ARE,

THEY LIVE IN A FANTASY

WORLD.

AND ONCE THE FANTASY IS

ESTABLISHED, NOTHING CAN

CHANGE THEM.

AND THEN THEY EXPECT

NORMAL PEOPLE TO ACCEPT

THEIR FANTASY.

THIS IS A FANTASY.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I

DECLARED THE UNITED

STATES -- IT IS ABOUT TIME

IT WITHDRAWS ITS SUPPORT

FROM THE UNITED NATIONS.

THE UNITED NATIONS IS NO

LONGER OBJECTIVE.

AND UNESCO IS SUPPOSED TO

BE TAKING CARE OF ALL OF

THE SITES, AND IT IS AN

EDUCATIONAL AND CULTURAL

ORGANIZATION.

NONSENSE.

IT HAS NOW BECOME A TOOL

OF LEFT-WING ARAB

PROPAGANDA.

AND WHY SHOULD WE IN THE

UNITED STATES BE PICKING

UP ALMOST ONE -- OR AT

LEAST A QUARTER OR SO OF

THE BUDGET OF THIS

MONSTEROUS ORGANIZATION.

YOU SEE THE SALARIES OF

THESE PEOPLE.

THEY LIVE IN SPLENDOR.

AND THEY SEEM TO BE FREE

OF ALL LAWS AND

RESTRAINTS.

I THINK IT IS TIME TO CUT

THEM DOWN.

I ADVOCATED SOME TIME AGO

ANOTHER ORGANIZATION, A

SOCIETY OF DEMOCRATIC

NATIONS.

AND I THINK A LOT OF THESE

ARE NOT DEMOCRATIC AT ALL.

THEY'RE AUTOCRATIC, AND

SOME ARE DICTATORSHIPS.

AND I THINK WE SHOULD STOP

SUPPORTING THE UNITED

NATIONS.

IT DOESN'T WORK.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS

USEFUL FOR IN TERMS OF

ESTABLISHING PEACE OR

JUSTICE.

AND OVER IN ISRAEL, THERE

IS SOMETHING CALLED THE

UNITED NATIONS WORKS

AGENCY, WHICH HAS BEEN IN

EXISTENCE TO KEEP

PALESTINIAN REFUGEES IN A

PERPETUAL STATE OF

BONDAGE.

AND THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON

FOR DECADES.

THE UNITED NATIONS AUS PIS

AUSPICES IS BECAUSE THEY

REFUSE TO RESETTLE THESE

PEOPLE.

IT IS RIDICULOUS.

WE'VE GOT THE POWER OF THE

PURSE, AND LET'S JUST PULL

THE PURSE STRINGS AND SAY

NO MORE MONEY.

Efrem: HERE IN THE

U.S., WILDFIRES ARE RAGING

ACROSS THE WESTERN PART OF

THE COUNTRY.

THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN

EVACUATED, INCLUDING KIDS

AT A SUMMER CAMP.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Charlene: IN

CALIFORNIA, FIREFIGHTERS

ARE BATTLING 14 LARGE

FIRES FROM THE AIR AND ON

THE GROUND.

THE BLAZING INFERNOS HAVE

FORCED THOUSANDS FROM

THEIR HOMES.

ONE FIRE, CALLED THE ALAMO

FIRE, BURNING IN SAN LUIS

OBISPO IS COVERING AN AREA

TWO-THIRDS OF SIZE OF

WASHINGTON, D.C.

IN SANTA BARBARA, FLAMES

SHUT DOWN A MAJOR HIGHWAY,

TRAPPING 90 CHILDREN AND

THEIR COUNSELLORS AT A

NEAR SUMMER CAMP.

A BULLDOZER HELPED TO

BREAKTHROUGH THE FLAMES TO

RESCUE THE KIDS.

THERE WAS THESE TREES,

SUPER HOT, AND THEY WERE

EXPLODING.

Charlene: THIS TIME

LAPSE VIDEO SHOWS HOW

QUICKLY THE WHITTIER FIRE

BURNED ACROSS THE COUNTY.

THIS CAMP WAS DESTROYED.

WILDFIRES ARE HAPPENING

ACROSS THE WEST, AS NEARLY

40 FIRES ARE BURNING FROM

THE SOUTHWEST TO THE

ROCKIES.

IN ARIZONA, OFFICIALS SAY

A FOREST FIRE IN ONE

COUNTY HAS BURNED OVER

35,000 ACRES.

MEAN KYLE, IMEANWHILE IN

OROVILLE,

CALIFORNIA, RESIDENTS WHO

ESCAPED THE FIRES ARE

GRATEFUL TO BE ALIVE.

IF THERE IS SUCH A

THING AS HELL, IT IS OVER

THAT RIDGE, BECAUSE THAT

GLOW IS JUST COMING OUT OF

THERE.

WE'RE LUCKY, WE'RE

OKAY.

Efrem: WELL, A

GROWING NUMBER OF

AMERICANS AREN'T RETIRING

WHEN THEY GET PAST 65.

MANY ARE STILL EMPLOYED,

AT LEAST PART-TIME.

NEARLY 19% OF PEOPLE 65

AND OVER STILL WORK,

ACCORDING TO THE MOST

RECENT GOVERNMENT JOB

FIGURES.

PEOPLE ARE WORKING FOR A

VARIETY OF REASONS.

SOME PEOPLE ENJOY THEIR

JOBS, WHILE OTHERS JUST

WANT TO STAY ACTIVE OR

WANT TO BUILD UP MORE CASH

FOR RETIREMENT.

STILL, OTHERS MAY JUST

NEED THE MONEY.

AND THE TREND ISN'T

LIMITED TO JUST THE U.S.

EITHER.

WORKERS IN OTHER COUNTRIES

ARE ALSO POSTPONING

RETIREMENT UNTIL LATER IN

LIFE.

PAT, YOU KNOW A THING OR

TWO ABOUT DELAYED

RETIREMENT.

Pat: WELL, I DO.

I WAS GOING TO RACK IT UP

AT 80, BUT I DECIDED THE

LORD HAS MORE FOR ME TO

DO.

MAYBE I'LL RETIRE AT 100.

Wendy: YOU WERE JUST

A KID AT 80.

Pat: JUST A KID.

JUST LEARNING HOW TO DO

TELEVISION.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, UP NEXT, AFTER 20

YEARS OF DRUG ABUSE, A

CRACK ADDICT CAN'T EVEN

STAND TO LOOK AT HIMSELF.

I'M NOT GOING TO LOOK

IN THE MIRROR AT MYSELF.

THE MIRROR TELLS THE TALE.

NO ONE LOOKS IN THE

MIRROR, NO ONE.

Wendy: SEE HOW A

SUPER NATURAL RAL INTERVENTION

SAVED THIS MAN, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: MARIJUANA, OR

MARY JANE, A HARMLESS

PLANT, IS GETTING

LEGALIZED ALL OVER.

WELL, THERE WAS A MAN

NAMED JOEL JACOB WOWSKI,

WHO HAD THIS FIRST TOKE OF

A JOINT OF MARIJUANA WHEN

HE WAS EIGHT YEARS OLD.

FROM THEN ON, HE USED POT

THREE TIMES A DAY, BEFORE,

DURING, AND AFTER SCHOOL.

REMEMBER, HE IS JUST A

LITTLE BOY.

AND OVER THE YEARS, JOEL'S

DRUG USE ESCALATED INTO A

FULL-BLOWN ADDICTION.

NOT JUST TO MARIJUANA, BUT

TO CRACK COCAINE.

AND HE BECAME SO

GROTESQUELY EMACIATED, HE

COULD NOT EVEN LOOK AT

HIMSELF IN A MIRROR.

MY RIBS ARE SHOWING.

MY WHOLE BOTTOM JAW IS

SUCKED IN. I DON'T EVEN

WANT TO USE THE BATHROOM

AND EVER LOOK IN THE

MIRROR.

I'M NOT GOING TO LOOK IN

THE MIRROR AT MYSELF.

THE MIRROR TELLS THE TALE.

NO ONE LOOKS IN THE

MIRROR.

Reporter: JOEL'S

ADDICTION TOOK HIM TO THE

DEPTHS OF DISPAIR, LIVING

IN A CRACK HOUSE.

HIS PAINFUL JOURNEY BEGAN

AT A CHILD WHEN HIS

PARENTS DIVORCED.

THERE WAS MORE PEACE IN

THE WOODS WITH MY DOG THAN

ANY DAY I'M GOING TO FIND

IN THAT HOUSE.

SO I LEARNED TO GET

COMFORTABLE WITH BEING

ALONE.

AND NOT TRYING TO PUT A

WHOLE LOT OF RELIABILITY

ON OTHER PEOPLE'S

AFFECTION, LOVE, AND CARE,

BECAUSE I JUST LEARNED TO

STOP TRUSTING IT.

Reporter: JOEL STAYED

WITH HIS MOTHER, WHO

SUFFERED FROM MENTAL

ILLNESS.

BECAUSE SHE WAS A

CHRISTIAN, HE BLAMED GOD

FOR HER INABILITY TO LOVE

AND TAKE CARE OF HER.

SHE WOULD SIT AT A

TABLE AND NOT MOVE, NOT

TAKING CARE OF HER HIGH

HIJACKER GENE.

HYGIENE.

SHE WAS INCAPABLE OF

GIVING LOVE.

Reporter: HE STARTED

SMOKING POLT.

POT.

IT TOOK ALL OF THAT

ANGST AND EMOTIONAL

SADNESS, AND SO I LOVED

IT.

I WAS SMOKING MARIJUANA

THREE TIMES A DAY, BEFORE,

DURING, AND AFTER SCHOOL.

IT WAS JUST WHAT I DID TO

NOT REALLY HAVE TO FEEL.

I DON'T WANT TO GET BACK

TO FEELING.

IF I START FEELING, WHAT

AM I GOING TO DO WITH ALL

OF THAT.

Reporter: WHEN JOEL

WAS IN HIS 20s,

MARIJUANA BECAME THE

GATEWAY TO HARDER DRUGS.

ALL IT TOOK WAS ONE

TIME.

I HAD ROOMMATES WHO DID

CRACK COCAINE, AND I SAID,

I'LL TRY IT.

ONCE THE CRACK CAME, IT

WAS ALMOST OVERNIGHT THAT

THIS IS NOW WHAT IS GOING

TO START RUNNING THE SHOW.

Reporter: HIS NEW

ADDICTION CONSUMED EVERY

PART OF HIS LIFE AND SOUL.

IT WAS THAT HORRIBLE

CYCLE OF HUSTLING,

COPPING, GETTING HIGH.

ALL DAY LONG.

AND THE ONLY TIME YOU'RE

GOING TO GO TO SLEEP IS

WHEN YOU'RE COMPLETELY

DEVASTATED, AND YOU CAN'T

GET ANYMORE.

THE DEALER IS OUT AND

THERE ARE NO DEALERS

AVAILABLE, OR YOU RIPPED

OFF EVERYBODY YOU COULD

STEAL FROM THAT DAY.

YOU DON'T BELIEVE THAT

HOPE IS ON THE HORIZON.

MY LOVE TANK WAS EMPTY.

THERE WAS NO ONE FILLING

THAT.

EVERY RELATIONSHIP I WAS

IN, I WAS IN IT TO WHAT I

COULD GET OUT OF IT.

I'M NOT GOING TO DELIVER

YOU MY HEART AND HAVE YOU

BE A GOOD STEWARD OF MY

HEART.

Reporter: JOEL WORKED

OFF AND ON TO SUPPORT HIS

HABIT.

BUT AFTER 20 YEARS OF

ADDICTION, HE MOVED INTO A

CRACK HOUSE AND STARTED

RUNNING DRUGS.

THE CRACK HOUSE CULTURE

IS ME TRYING TO HELP YOU

FIND YOUR WALLET, AND IT

IS IN MY BACK POCKET.

I WAS ALWAYS CONVINCED THE

POLICE WERE COMING.

I WOULD BE LOOKING OUT THE

WINDOW.

I WOULD BE QUIET AND

FREEZE AND NOT MAKE ANY

MOVEMENT.

TOTAL DEVASTATION AND

ISOLATION.

I WAS SITTING THERE

ANYWAY, WHY AM I HERE?

AM I HERE TO DIE?

IS THAT WHY I'VE COME

HERE?

YOU'RE LOOKING UP AT

NOTHING BECAUSE YOU

BELIEVE IN NOTHING.

I DON'T BELIEVE IN

ANYTHING.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M

LOOKING.

AND I'M ASKING THESE

QUESTIONS INTO THIS PLACE

WHERE THERE IS NOT GOING

TO BE ANY ALEXANDRA.

ANSWERS.

SO REALIZING, I THINK I'M

HERE TO DIE.

DEATH IS A RELIEF.

WE TALK ABOUT OVER DOSING

OR HAVING A HEART ATTACK,

AND I WOULD THINK TO

MYSELF, THAT'S THE

RESOLVE.

Reporter: IN

DESPERATION, HIS FAMILY

MADE ONE LAST ATTEMPT TO

PULL HIM OUT.

THEY JUST KEPT CALLING,

AND FINALLY MY SISTER DID

A RESCUE MISSION.

SHE ROUNDED UP FRIENDS OF

MINE, AND SHE SAID, WE'RE

COMING TO GET YOU.

Reporter: THEY TOOK

HIM TO TEEN CHALLENGE, A

CHRISTIAN RECOVERY PROGRAM

FOR DRUG ADDICTS.

A FEW WEEKS INTO THE

PROGRAM, JOEL POURED OUT

HIS ANGER AT GOD.

I SAID, I DON'T KNOW

WHO YOU ARE, AND I CURSED

HIM OUT, AND SHOOK A FIST

AT HIM WITH ALL OF THE

"WHERE WERE YOUs," AND

THERE WAS A WEIRD PART OF

ME THAT FELT LIKE SOMEBODY

WAS LISTENING.

I HAD NEVER HEARD ANYBODY

LISTENING.

I HEARD GOD SAYING, I WAS

THERE ALWAYS, WITH YOU, IN

ALL OF IT.

I WAS RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, I

SUSTAINED YOU FOR A DAY

SUCH AS THIS.

BY THE END OF IT, I WAS ON

THE FLOOR IN A POOL OF

TEARS, BODY SURFING ON

THOSE TEARS ALL THE WAY TO

THE FEET OF JESUS, AND

I'VE NEVER TURNED BACK.

Reporter: JOEL

SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO

CHRIST AND COMPLETED

REHABILITATION.

SOBER FOR 13 YEARS, HE IS

NOW MARRIED AND COMPLETING

A DOCTORATE IN ADDICTION

COUNSELLING.

HE WORKS WITH TEEN

CHALLENGE, HELPING OTHERS

FIND RESTORATION THROUGH

JESUS CHRIST.

MOST OF ALL, HE IS

GRATEFUL FOR A HEALED

HEART THAT HAS LEARNED HOW

TO TRUST GOD.

IT WAS A CHANGE OF

IDENTITIES, AND IT WAS

NOTHING LESS THAN

SUPERNATURAL.

I COULD BE VULNERABLE WITH

GOD.

I COULD HAVE HIM -- HE'S

IN THE ROOM WHEREVER I GO.

SOMETIMES IN FEELING, BUT

ALWAYS IN KNOWING.

AND I NEVER HAD THAT.

I NEVER HAD A KNOWING OF

SOMETHING CARING FOR ME.

EVERY RELATIONSHIP I'VE

EVER BEEN IN TAKES A

CERTAIN LEVEL OF RISK.

BUT ENTERING INTO THE RISK

WITH JESUS AND FINDING OUT

THERE WAS NONE IS THE

REWARD.

THERE WAS NEVER A RISK.

HE PROMISES TO NEVER LEAVE

ME NOR FORSAKE ME.

Pat: WHAT A

TESTIMONY.

ALL I CAN SAY IS, IF

YOU'RE ADDICTED, IF YOU'RE

INTO CRACK COCAINE, IF

YOU'RE INTO HEROIN, IF

YOU'RE INTO METH, OR IF

YOU'RE INTO SOME OTHER

ADDICTION, LIKE

PORNOGRAPHY, THE LORD

HASN'T GIVEN UP ON YOU.

AND HE LOVES YOU.

AND HE HAS THE POWER TO

TRANSFORM YOU, AND HE CAN

AND WILL AND DOES.

AND THERE ARE MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE WHO ARE WALKING THE

FACE OF THIS EARTH WHO

HAVE BEEN TRANSFORMED BY

THE LOVE OF GOD.

AND HE CAN TRANSFORM YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF ANYBODY

IS IN CHRIST, HE IS A NEW

CREATION.

OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED

AWAY.

BEHOLD, ALL HAS BECOME

NEW.

A NEW CREATION.

AND THAT COULD BE YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.

AND SAY, JESUS, RIGHT NOW,

I COME TO YOU, AND I ASK

YOU TO FORGIVE ME, CLEANSE

ME, AND MAKE ME WHOLE.

AND ONCE YOU'VE MADE THAT

DECISION, IT MAY NOT

ALWAYS BE ANGELS AND

TRUMPETS AND BRIGHT

LIGHTS -- THERE MAY BE A

FEW DARK DAYS WHERE THE

DEVIL TRIES TO PULL YOU

BACK, BUT THE LORD HIMSELF

WILL REACH OUT TO YOU.

REACH OUT AND TAKE HIS

HAND, AND WATCH WHAT HE

WILL DO FOR YOU.

NEXT, HERE IS WENDY.

Wendy: THANK YOU,

PAT.

STILL AHEAD, WE'RE GOING

TO MEET THE ACTRESS WHO'S

BREAKOUT ROLE WAS IN "THE

WAR ROOM," AND HOW THE

FOLLOW CHANGED HER LIFE,

AND WHAT IS AHEAD FOR HER

NOW AS A BUDDING NEW

AUTHOR.

ALENA JOINS US LIVE,

COMING UP.

PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: ALENA PITTS

WAS JUST 10 YEARS OLD,

WHEN SHE LANDED THE PART

OF DANIEL JORDAN IN THE

HIT MOVIE, "THE WAR ROOM."

AND SHE HAS AUTHORED A

BOOK ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL,

LIKE HERSELF, WHO LANDS A

MAJOR ROLE IN A MOVIE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: ALENA PITTS

HAD PLANNED TO BE A LAWYER

WHEN SHE GREW UP.

BUT IN 2015, WHEN HER AUNT

ASKED HER TO AUDITION FOR

THE MOVIE "THE WAR ROOM,"

SHE HAD NO IDEA SHE WOULD

GET THE PART.

TODAY SHE IS 13, AND

BALANCING LIFE AS A MODEL

AND AUTHOR.

SHE USES HER LIFE

EXPERIENCES TO HIGHLIGHT

FUN STORIES ABOUT FAITH,

LOVE, AND FAMILY IN HER

BOOK, "HELLO, STARS."

Wendy: AND PLEASE

WELCOME TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

ACTRESS AND AUTHOR ALENA

PITTS.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: I LOVE THAT

MOVIE.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: YOU ARE NOW

13.

AND YOU WERE SELECTED FOR

THIS ROLE IN "THE WAR

ROOM" WITH NO PROFESSIONAL

ACTING EXPERIENCE.

HOW DID YOU PULL THAT OFF?

KIND OF CONNECTIONS AND

IT IS A GOD THING.

PRISCILLA IS MY AUNT.

AND SHE KIND OF JUST KIND

OF ASKED THEM, ARE YOU

LOOKING FOR A LITTLE GIRL.

AND THEY WERE LIKE, YES,

BUT WE CAN'T FIND ANY WITH

THE FAITH, ALSO.

AND SHE SAID, I HAVE AN

AUDITION WHO WOULANIECE WHO WOULD LIKE TO

AUDITION.

AND I THOUGHT, I WOULD

NEVER GET THE PART, AND I

ENDED UP GETTING THE PART.

IT WAS REALLY KIND OF A

GOD THING.

AND I REALLY ENJOYED IT.

Wendy: WELL, YOU WERE

GREAT IN IT.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: HOW HARD WAS

IT TO MEMORIZE YOUR LINES,

OR DID IT COME EASY TO

YOU?

IT WASN'T REALLY HARD

TO MEMORIZE YOUR LINES.

MAINLY BECAUSE YOU ONLY

HAVE, LIKE, THREE LINES TO

SAY A DAY.

AND THE LINES WERE, LIKE,

SUPER SHORT.

AND THEY DO IT IN

DIFFERENT CLIPS.

AND YOU SHOOT OVER AND

OVER.

SO EVENTUALLY YOU END UP

JUST MEMORIZING IT

ANYWAYS.

Wendy: OVER ALL, WHAT

DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE

PROCESS OF ACTING?

IS IT SOMETHING YOU CAN

SEE YOURSELF DOING IN THE

FUTURE?

IT IS A LOT OF FUN AND

I DEFINITELY WOULD DO IT

AGAIN.

BUT IT IS NOT SOMETHING I

WOULD DO FOR A LIVING.

IT KIND OF JUST CAME, AND

SO I ACCEPTED IT AND,

LIKE, DID IT, BUT I DON'T

THINK I WOULD END UP DOING

IT AGAIN OR, LIKE,

PURSUING IT.

Wendy: I READ

ORIGINALLY YOU THOUGHT YOU

MIGHT WANT TO BE A LAWYER

OR A PROFESSIONAL

VOLLEYBALL PLAYER.

YES.

Wendy: IS THAT STILL

ON THE TABLE?

UM, YEAH, I GUESS, BUT NOT

REALLY.

I KIND OF WOULD DO IT FOR,

LIKE, A LITTLE BIT.

I DON'T LIKE TO DO THINGS

FOREVER.

THAT'S REALLY BORING.

I LIKE TO BE ABLE TO DO

THINGS AS TIME GOES BY.

SO I WOULD BE A

PROFESSIONAL VOLLEYBALL

PLAYER IN COLLEGE, AND

THEN GO TO BE A LAWYER.

BUT THAT HAS GOT SO MUCH

SCHOOL.

Wendy: THE MOVIE HAD

A STRONG IMPACT ON YOUR

PERSONAL PRAYER LIFE AND

IT HAD A STRONG IMPACT ON

EVERYBODY WHO WATCHED

THIS.

I READ YOU THOUGHT OF AT

ONE TIME THOUGHT BRAYER PRAYER

WAS FOR OLDER PEOPLE.

YES.

Wendy: HOW DID THIS

MOVIE AFFECT YOUR PERSONAL

PRAYER LIFE?

I USED TO THINK THAT

PRAYER WAS ONLY FOR OLDER

PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY HAVE

SO MANY TESTIMONIES.

BUT THEN I REALIZED GOD

CARES ABOUT CHILDREN AND

HE WANTS TO HEAR ABOUT OUR

PRAYERS.

AND MY WILDEST DREAMS AND

PRAYERS HAVE COME TRUE, SO

IT SHOWS THAT GOD IS

LISTENING NO MATTER HOW

OLD YOU ARE.

Wendy: I KNOW THAT

THE KENDRICK BROTHERS

WROTE AND PRODUCED THIS

FILM, AND THEY'RE ALL

ABOUT PRAYER.

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THINGS

WEREN'T GOING RIGHT ON THE

STAGE?

THEY WOULD JUST STOP

AND PRAY.

ONE OF THE CAMERAMEN, HIS

GRANDPA HAD A HEART

ATTACK, DURING A SCENE,

AND WE ALL STOPPED AND

PRAYED FOR HIM, AND HE

ENDED UP BEING OKAY.

Wendy: ALONG WITH

YOUR MOM, WINTER, YOU HAVE

WRITTEN A BOOK CALLED

"HELLO, STARS."

AND IT'S ABOUT A YOUNG

GIRL WITH NO ACTING

EXPERIENCE WHO GETS A ROLE

IN A BIG MOVIE.

I THINKING THAT IT MIGHT

BE ABOUT YOU?

YES.

IT IS A REFLECTION OF MY

LIFE, AND THINGS THAT HAVE

HAPPENED IN MY LIFE THAT

HAPPENED IN THERE, AND

THEN SOME RANDOM FICTIONAL

THINGS.

Wendy: AND THERE IS A

CUTE LITTLE PUPPY IN

THERE?

YES.

Wendy: IN THIS IS THE

FIRST.

YES.

THE NEXT ONE COMES OUT IN

SEPTEMBER, AND THEN THE

NEXT ONE COMES OUT AT THE

END OF JANUARY.

Wendy: WHAT IS THE

MESSAGE OF THE BOOK?

JUST TO LET GOD TAKE

CONTROL.

BECAUSE WE KNEW WHAT OUR

WHOLE LIFE WAS SUPPOSED TO

BE, AND THEN GOD FLIPPED

IT AND GAVE US A NEW LIFE.

AND SO YOU NEED TO LET GOD

CONTROL IT.

Wendy: WHAT DO YOU

LIKE BETTER, ACTING OR

AUTHORING?

ACTING.

Wendy: YOU DO.

YOU CAUGHT THE ACTING BUG

A LITTLE BIT, BUT YOU'RE

NOT SURE.

YES.

Wendy: SO IF ANYBODY

IS INTERESTED HAVING YOU

AUDITION, YOU'RE STILL

OPEN, RIGHT?

YES.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE --

THAT MOVIE IMPACTED SO

MANY PEOPLE'S LIVES.

AND FOR THAT TO BE YOUR

FIRST MOVIE, WHAT WAS THAT

LIKE?

IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.

DEFINITELY OVERWHELMING

BECAUSE I NEVER ACTED

BEFORE, SO I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO EXPECT.

IT WAS TOTALLY OUT THERE,

AND IT WAS SO DIFFERENT

THAN W WHAT I THOUGHT, BUT

IN A GOOD WAY.

I WAS REALLY THANKFUL THAT

I GOT THE PART AND THE

OPPORTUNITY TO DO IT.

Wendy: 13 YEARS OLD

AND ALREADY AN AUTHOR AND

AN ACTRESS.

AND MAYBE A PROFESSIONAL

VOLLEYBALL PLAYER.

ON TOP OF ALL THAT, ALEN

AALENAPITTS.

WE ALSO HAVE A WEB

EXCLUSIVE LLUVI INTERVIEW WITH

ALENA, AND SHE GETS INTO A

LOT MORE DETAILS ABOUT

WHAT SHE HAS BEEN UP TO.

IT IS A PLEASURE.

AND I KNOW WE'LL BE

HEARING A LOT FROM YOU.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS A PLEASURE MEETING

YOU.

Wendy: COMING UP,

DARLA SAYS, "JESUS SAYS HE

ONLY DID WHAT HE SAW HIS

FATHER DO.

WHAT DID JESUS MEAN WHEN

HE SAID THAT?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S

ANSWER ON THAT AND MUCH

MORE, COMING UP.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'VE GOT SOME QUESTIONS

FOR YOU IN A MINUTE FOR

TWO.

BUT RIGHT NOW I WANT TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO DAVID.

DAVID IS A HARD-WORKING

TEENAGER WHO DRIVES A

BICYCLE TAXI IN THE

PHILIPPINES.

DAVID IS ALSO AN ORPHAN

WHO LIVES WITH HIS AUNT.

BUT NOT LONG AGO HE HAD TO

DROP OUT OF SCHOOL.

WHY?

BECAUSE HE WAS STARVING.

Reporter: AFTER A

TYPHOON DESTROYED THEIR

HOME AND DAVID LOST HIS

PARENTS, HE WENT TO LIVE

WITH HIS AUNT.

BUT SHE STRUGGLED TO

PROVIDE FOR HIM.

DAVID DID ODD JOBS AROUND

THE COMMUNITY FOR FOOD AND

A FEW COINS.

I ASKED MY NEIGHBOR IF

HE COULD GIVE ME FOOD IF I

DELIVERED THE WATER TO

THEM.

SOMETIMES MY NEIGHBOR

ASKED ME TO FILL SIX JUGS.

ONE JUG IS WORTH 10 CENTS.

Reporter: DAVID WAS

STILL HUNGRY, EVEN THOUGH

HE WORKED MANY HOURS A DAY

DELIVERING WATER.

SO HE DROPPED OUT OF

SCHOOL.

WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL,

I COULD NOT CONCENTRATE.

MY STOMACH WAS EMPTY, AND

SO MY BRAIN WAS EMPTY,

TOO.

Reporter: SO CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING"

INVESTED IN THE YOUNG

ENTREPRENEUR.

WE GAVE HIM A BICYCLE

TAXI, WHICH PROVIDES A WAY

TO EARN MORE MONEY IN LESS

TIME.

DAVID HAS NOW RETURNED TO

SCHOOL, AND HE AND HIS

AUNT HAVE PLENTY TO EAT.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT MY

AUNT AND I DON'T HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT FOOD AND WATER

ANYMORE.

THANK YOU.

YOU CHANGED MY LIFE.

Pat: JUST THINK OF

THAT, THE LORD SAID, I WAS

HUNGRY, AND YOU FED ME.

I WAS NAKED, AND YOU

CLOTHED ME.

I WAS SICK AND IMPRISONED,

AND YOU CAME TO ME.

AS MUCH AS YOU DO TO THE

LEAST OF THESE, MY

BROTHER, YOU'VE DONE IT TO

ME.

LITTLE DAVID WAS DOING

SOMETHING FOR JESUS.

AND THE LORD LOOKS DOWN

AND IS PLEASED.

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE

IN HELPING PEOPLE LIKE

DAVID -- YOU MAY NOT BE

ABLE TO GO TO THE

PHILIPPINES OR OTHER

COUNTRIES, BUT WE CAN.

WE'RE ALL OVER THE WORLD

HELPING THE POOR AND THE

NEEDY.

YOU CAN DO SOMETHING.

REACH IN FOR THE CHANGE IN

YOUR POCKET, 65 CENTS A

DAY, AND SUDDENLY YOU'VE

GOT $20 A MONTH.

AND YOU BECOME A MEMBER OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND TOGETHER WITH

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

US, WE CAN CHANGE THE

WORLD.

THAT'S THE WHOLE IDEA.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP AND

YOU HAVEN'T DONE IT YET,

PLEASE CALL IN:

1-800-700-7000.

IT'S 1-800-700-7000.

Wendy: YOU KNOW, I

DIDN'T EVEN CATCH IT.

I'M SO USED TO HEARING

THAT.

Pat: 1-800-700-7000

AND YOU CAN CALL IN

TOLL-FREE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU THIS

D.V.D. ABOUT MIRACLES.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

TOUCHED BY THIS.

WE HAD VIDEOS OF PEOPLE

HAVING MIRACLES.

WE DISCUSSED MIRACLES,

WHAT IT SAYS IN THE BIBLE

ABOUT MIRACLES.

AND SCOTT AND I WERE

THERE.

AND I THINK YOU'LL FIND IT

HELPFUL.

Wendy: LINDA FROM

CALIFORNIA SAID, THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR THE "MIRACLES"

D.V.D.

WOW, WHAT A WONDERFUL

COMPILATION OF TESTIMONIES

THAT DEMONSTRATES GOD'S

AWESOMENESS IN ANSWERING

OUR PRAYERS.

AND LINDA IS RIGHT, YOU

NEED TO GET A COPY OF

"MIRACLES."

IT IS YOURS WHEN YOU GIVE

US A CALL AND SAY, YES, I

WANT TO JOIN "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WE'RE GOING TO BE

RIGHT BACK WITH "BRING IT

ON," YOUR AMAZING

QUESTIONS, COMING UP AFTER

THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME TO "BRING IT

ON" WITH YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

WE'RE GOING TO START WITH

DARLA.

SHE SAYS, "IN THE BOOK OF

JOHN, FIFTH CHAPTER, JESUS

SAID HE ONLY DID WHAT HE

SAW HIS FATHER DO.

DOES IT SAY IN THE BIBLE

WHAT OUR FATHER GOD EVER

DID?

WHAT DID JESUS MEAN WHEN

HE SAID THAT?"

Pat: WELL, JESUS,

REMEMBER, COULD LOOK INTO

HEAVEN, AND HE OBSERVED

THE FATHER.

THE FATHER HAS NEVER LEFT

ME ALONE BECAUSE I DO THE

THINGS THAT PLEASE HIM.

SO HE SAW THE FATHER.

AND WHAT HE WOULD SEE WAS

THE FATHER RAISING A DEAD

MAN.

HE WOULD RAISE A DEAD MAN.

HE WOULD SEE THE FATHER

FEEDING A MULTITUDE, AND

HE WOULD FEED THE

MULTITUDE.

WHEN HE WENT INTO THE TOMB

OF LAZARUS, HE LOOKED UP

TO THE FATHER.

AND HE SAID, I KNOW YOU

CAN DO THIS, BUT FOR THOSE

STANDING HERE, I'M GOING

TO SAY THESE WORDS.

SO HE SPOKE TO LAZARUS AND

SAID COME FORTH, AND THE

DEAD MAN CAME UP.

BUT JESUS ALREADY SAW THE

FATHER DOING IT.

THAT'S WHY OUR EYES NEED

TO BE ON HEAVEN.

WHEN WE PERCEIVE THAT,

THEN MIRACLES TAKE PLACE,

ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

Wendy: AMEN.

ED WRITES IN, "THE BIBLE

SAYS THAT HE WHO WINS

SOULS FOR JESUS IS WISE.

I'VE BEEN A "700 CLUB"

MEMBER FOR SOME YEARS NOW.

I PAY TITHES AT MY CHURCH

AND ALSO GIVE OFFERINGS

BECAUSE IT IS AN OUTREACH

CHURCH.

EACH MONTH WE RENT BUSES

AND GO INTO AREAS WHERE

PEOPLE CAN'T GET OUT AND

HAVE SERVICES AND FEED

THEM BEFORE TAKING THEM

HOME.

AM I CONSIDERED A PERSON

WHO WINS LIVES FOR JESUS,

EVEN THOUGH I MAY NOT BE

DOING ALL THE WORK?"

Pat: I THINK SO.

ALL OF US WORKING TOGETHER

ARE WINNING SOULS.

HE WHO WINS SOULS ARE

WISE.

I REMEMBER A GUY NAMED

BILL BRIGHT WHO FOUNDED

"CAMPUS CRUSADE."

HE DIDN'T LET A DAY GO BY

THAT HE DIDN'T LEAD

SOMEBODY TO THE LORD

PERSONALLY.

WHEN YOU HELP MINISTRIES

THAT ARE INDEED WINNING

PEOPLE TO THE LORD,

INDEED, YOUR IN A SENSE

WINNING SOULS.

Wendy: HE TALKED

ABOUT HOW HE IS HELPING

FEED PEOPLE.

YOU CAN'T REALLY MINISTER

TO SOMEONE WHO IS

STARVING, WHO IS HUNGRY.

SO FEEDING --

Pat: WE CALL IT

PRE-EVANGELISM.

Wendy: RICHARD SAYS,

"WHY DOES IT SEEM OTHERS

ARE RECEIVING CHRIST, BUT

NO MATTER HOW MUCH I PRAY

AND ASK GOD INTO MY LIFE,

SATAN SELLS ME HE IS IN

ME.

HE HAS MU MY SOUL.

I CAN'T BREAK FREE, AND

NOTHING ON HIS EARTH CAN

HELP."

Pat: YOU'RE LISTENING

TO THE WRONG SOURCE.

I RECOMMEND YOU GET THE

BIBLE.

AND IT SAYS, IF YOU DO

THESE THINGS, THEN THE

LORD WILL DO THESE OTHER

THINGS.

HE THAT HEARS MY WORD AND

BELIEVES ON HIM WHO SENT

ME HAS EVERLASTING LIFE.

SO YOU READ THE WORD AND

YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, AND

THEN YOU BEGIN TO FOLLOW

WHAT GOD SAYS.

AND THEN WHAT YOU DO WITH

YOUR MOUTH, YOU BIND

SATAN.

I BIND YOU, SATAN, AND THE

FORCES OF EVIL.

I WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO

HAVE DOMINION OVER ME.

OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE SUBMITLY

YOURSELF OVER AND OVER

AGAIN TO THIS VOICE FROM

SATAN.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT.

BUT READ THE BIBLE.

REMEMBER WHEN SATAN CAME

TO JESUS, AND HE SAID,

NOW, LOOK, IT'S WRITTEN

HERE THAT IF JUMP OFF THIS

BUILDING, HE'LL GIVE THE

ANGELS CHARGE OVER YOU.

BUT HE MISREAD THE

SCRIPTURE BECAUSE THE

SCRIPTURE SAYS, HE'LL KEEP

YOU IN ALL YOUR WAY, AND

YOUR WAY DOES NOT INCLUDE

JUMPING OFF OF BUILDINGS.

BUT THE DEVIL TRIED TO USE

THE BIBLE TO DECEIVE

JESUS.

AND JESUS SAID, GET ME

BEHIND YOU, SATAN.

HERE IS WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

IT IS WRITTEN, IT IS

WRITTEN, IT IS WRITTEN --

THAT WAS HIS VICTORY.

THAT'S WHAT YOU SAY, IT IS

WRITTEN, BUT GET THE BIBLE

IN YOUR MIND.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "I REALLY ENJOY

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

WHICH IS THE BEST WAY TO

WIN SOULS?

I HEARD THAT THE BEST WAY

IS TO SHOW THE SINNER THE

10 COMMANDMENTS, TO SHOW

HIM HE HAS SINNED AND

NEEDS JESUS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS ON

HOW TO DO THIS

EFFICIENTLY?"

Pat: I THINK WHAT YOU

NEED TO DO -- YOU KNOW,

THERE HAS TO BE OIL IN A

GEAR TO KEEP THE GEAR FROM

SEIZING UP.

AND BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO

TRY TO WIN SOMEBODY TO THE

LORD, THERE HAS GOT TO BE

THE ANOINTING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

SO I THINK WHAT YOU NEED

TO DO IS PRAY THAT GOD

WILL GIVE YOU ANOINTING.

AND IT ISN'T NECESSARILY

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS.

SOMEBODY MIGHT SAY, YOU

KNOW, I'M SO SAD BECAUSE

WHATEVER.

AND YOU SAY, WELL, LET ME

COMFORT YOU AND LET ME

TELL YOU WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS, THAT GOD WILL NOT

LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.

YOU'RE NOT LAYING THE 10

COMMANDMENTS TO SHOW HIM

HE IS A SINNER.

HE KNOWS HE IS A SINNER.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS

SHOW THE LOVE OF GOD.

THE GREAT PREACHER,

JONATHAN EDWARDS, HE

PREACHED TO SINNERS IN THE

HANDS -- PEOPLE WERE

TRYING TO HOLD ON TO KEEP

FROM FALLING INTO HELL.

AND HE PREACHED ON THE

LOVE OF GOD.

IT IS KNOWING THE NEED OF

THE PERSON TO WHOM YOU'RE

ADDRESSING YOUR

STATEMENTS.

Wendy: THIS IS FROM

ROSS, WHO SAYS, "A FRIEND

OF MINE SAYS THIS ABOUT

THE KING JAMES VERSION 16:

11, THAT IT IS THE ONLY

REAL BIBLE.

IF YOU LISTEN TO A

PREACHER USING ANY OTHER

BIBLE IT IS A SIN.

IF YOU WOULD TAKE A-MINUTE

AND EXPLAIN TO ME THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE

KING JAMES AND OTHER

TRANSLATIONS."

Pat: IT SHOWS THIS

PREACHER IS IGNORANT.

HE HAS NO TRAINING.

I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT HE

IS MAKING A STATEMENT THAT

IS NOT BASED ON LOGIC.

WHAT IS DONE, WE TRANSLATE

ENGLISH FROM GREEK HEBREW.

AND WE HAVE FOUND BETTER

AND BETTER TEXTS.

NOW, THE KING JAMES WAS

TAKEN FROM THE TEXTUS

REEPTUS, WHICH WAS

ASSEMBLED BY A MAN NAMED

IRAZMUS.

AND AS WE GO FURTHER AND

FURTHER BACK, WE HAVE

THOSE WHO HAVE BETTER

GREEK THAN THE KING JAMES.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL LANGUAGE.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL ENGLISH.

IT IS VERY EASY TO

REMEMBER AND TO PREACH ON.

BUT THE TEXTUS RESEPTUS

HAS PROBLEMS WITH IT

BECAUSE THERE ARE AREAS

THEY ADDED.

ALL RIGHT, WE LEAVE YOU

WITH TODAY'S POWER MINUTE

FROM ISAIAH: "WHEN THE

ENEMY COMES IN LIKE A

FLOOD, THE SPIRIT OF THE

LORD WILL LIFT UP A

STANDARD AGAINST HIM."

FROM WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND

WE WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
