The 700 Club - September 20, 2017

A rider is thrown from her horse, fracturing her skull and left medically at the point of no return. Plus, Paul Wilbur joins us live to lead the celebration in the midst of a chaotic world. Read Transcript


HOLD ON, BABY.

JUST DON'T PANIC.

Wendy: A RIDER IS

THROWN FROM HER HORSE.

AND I LOST COMPLETE

SIGHT OF HER.

Wendy: AND SHE

FRACTURES HER SKULL.

I WENT INTO, GOD HELP

ME.

Wendy: AND IT IS A

POINT OF NO RETURN.

SHOW ME, SHOW ME WHAT

YOU CAN DO IN THIS MOMENT

RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: OUR "SEVEN

DAYS ABLAZE" CELEBRATION

CONTINUES ON TODAY'S "THE

700 CLUB."

THANK YOU, GOD.

*

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

THERE ARE DEVASTATING,

BACK-TO-BACK NATURAL

DISASTERS.

THE MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE IN

MEXICO THAT KILLED MORE

THAN 200 PEOPLE YESTERDAY,

AND TODAY THE CATEGORY 5

HURRICANE MARIA THAT HIT

PUERTO RICO AFTER CRASHING

INTO OTHER ISLANDS.

WENDY, WHAT IS GOING ON?

Wendy: WHAT IS GOING

ON?

THAT IS A QUESTION I'M

EVEN HEARING ON SECULAR

MAINSTREAM MEDIA.

PEOPLE ARE WANTING TO

KNOW.

Pat: I DON'T HAVE ANY

SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING OF

IT.

IF I DO, IT HASN'T BEEN

REVEALED TO ME, LET'S PUT

IT THAT WAY.

THESE ARE HORRIBLE STORMS.

Wendy: A LOT OF

PEOPLE THINK IT COULD BE

THE LORD JUST TRYING TO

GET OUR ATTENTION AND

PERHAPS REVIVAL IS DOWN

THE ROAD, AND WE CERTAINLY

HOPE THAT MIGHT BE THE

CASE.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER

SERVICE WARNED THAT THE

HURRICANE WAS AN EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS AND

LIFE-THREATENING

SITUATION, AND IT COULD

DEMOLISH PUERTO RICO.

Charlene: RESIDENTS

OF PUERTO RICO BRACED FOR

HURRICANE MARIA AFTER IT

BATTER THE CRI CARRIBEAN ON

TUESDAY AS A THE CATEGORY

5 STORM.

THERE WERE WINDS UP TO

155 MILES PER HOUR.

IT IS NOW EXPECTED TO TURN

NORTH, AWAY FROM FLORIDA,

BUT POSSIBLY SKIRTING THE

U.S.'S EAST COAST.

PUERTO RICO'S GOVERNOR

CALLS THIS THE MOST

CATASTROPHIC HURRICANE TO

HIT PUERTO RICO IN A

CENTURY.

THOUSANDS HAVE SOUGHT

REFUGE IN SHELTERS.

SOME FLED TO FLORIDA TO

GET AWAY FROM THE STORM.

I WAS SO GLAD, SO, SO

GLAD TO GET ON TO THAT

FLIGHT AND KNOW IT WAS

ACTUALLY GOING TO TAKE

OFF.

IT IS A BIT OF AN

EMOTIONAL RIDE.

MY FIRST HURRICANE I

SUFFERED THROUGH WAS IRMA,

AND I DIDN'T REALLY WANT

TO STICK AROUND FOR THIS

NEXT ONE.

Charlene: THE STORM

FIRST MADE LANDFALL IN

DOMINICA.

THE ONLY CATEGORY 5

HURRICANE TO HIT THE

ISLAND.

IN THE NEIGHBORING VIRGIN

ISLANDS, THE U.S. NAVY IS

EVACUATING ALL MILITARY

PERSONNEL AHEAD OF THE

STORM.

THE MASSIVE HURRICANE IS

HITTING AT THE SAME TIME

AS PEOPLE IN MEXICO ARE

DIGGING THROUGH RUBBLE,

AFTER THE DEVASTATING 7.1

EARTHQUAKE HIT THE REGION

AROUND MEXICO CITY

TUESDAY.

POLICE, FIREFIGHTERS, AND

ORDINARY CITIZENS ARE

SEARCHING THROUGH

COLLAPSED SCHOOLS, HOMES,

AND APARTMENT BUILDINGS,

LOOKING FOR SURVIVORS.

THIS NATURAL DISASTER

HAPPENED LESS THAN TWO

WEEKS AFTER A MAGNITUDE

8.1 QUAKE AFFECTED THE

STATES OF CHIAPAS AND

OAXACA.

PEOPLE ARE VERY

AGITATED, SOMETHING CRYING

AND SCREAMING.

I HAVE SEEN PEOPLE LYING

HERE, PROBABLY BECAUSE OF

NERVES, AND THEY

COLLAPSED.

Charlene: THE DEATH

TOLL ROSE ABOUT 200 AND IS

EXPECTED TO CLIMB.

MEXICO'S PRESIDENT ISSUED

A VIDEO STATEMENT

EXPRESSING HIS CONDOLENCES

TO THOSE KILLED IN THE

QUAKE.

REGRETTABLY, MANY

PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR

LIVES, INCLUDING BOYS AND

GIRLS AT EDUCATION

CENTERS, BUILDINGS, AND

HOUSES.

I WANT TO EXPRESS MY

CONDOLENCES TO THOSE WHO

LOST A RELATIVE OR LOVED

ONE.

MEXICO SHARES YOUR GRIEF.

Charlene: HE SAYS

THIS IS A VERY HARD TIME

FOR HIS COUNTRY.

THIS QUAKE IS A HARD

TEST, AND VERY PAINFUL FOR

OUR COUNTRY.

MEXICANS, WE HAVE HAD

DIFFICULT EXPERIENCES

UNDER QUAKES IN THE PAST,

AND WE HAVE LEARNED TO

RESPOND TO THESE EPISODES,

GIVING ALL IN THE SPIRIT

OF SOLIDARITY.

Charlene: CBN'S

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

WORKING TO HELP PEOPLE IN

BOTH DISASTER LOCATIONS,

WITH CASH GRANTS IN PUERTO

RICO AND DISTRIBUTING

RELIEF SUPPLIES IN MEXICO.

WE'RE HERE IN MEXICO

CITY, WHERE A REALLY BIG

EARTHQUAKE HIT TODAY.

THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF

AFFECTED AREAS.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

COLLAPSED BUILDINGS IN

THIS CITY.

AND IT IS THE SURROUNDING

TOWNS, MORELOS, AND A FEW

OTHERS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS A

MOBILE KITCHEN, TO GIVE

SUPPORT.

THE CITY IS COLLAPSED WITH

TRAFFIC.

AND EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO

GET EVERYWHERE.

WE MOBILIZED A UNIT OF

MOTORCYCLES TO BRING WATER

AND SUPPORT TO THOSE AREAS

THAT ARE STILL COLLAPSED.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

EVERYTHING YOU DO.

THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE WITH

YOUR SUPPORT.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

HELPING US TO BE HERE.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS,

CHARLENE.

I WANT TO CAUTION

EVERYBODY ABOUT READING

TOO MUCH SPIRITUAL INTO

THIS ONE.

I HAVE SEEN THINGS THAT

JUST SEEM TO BE THE

JUDGMENT OF GOD.

YOU READ THE BIBLE, AND

THERE ARE PHRASES LIKE

"THE LAND WILL VOMIT YOU

OUT."

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS.

BUT IN THIS CASE, I JUST

DON'T SEE ANY SPIRITUAL

SIGNIFICANCE.

NOW, I MAY BE MISSING

SOMETHING.

WENDY HAS MENTIONED SOME

OF THE THINGS PEOPLE ARE

SAYING.

I PERSONALLY HAVEN'T SEEN

ANYTHING.

I THINK I WOULD BE VERY

CAUTIOUS ABOUT SAYING,

WELL, THIS IS GOD'S

JUDGMENT, ETC., ETC.

THESE ARE NATURAL

DISASTERS, AND THEY

HAPPEN.

THE EARTH'S PLATES SHIFT,

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU

HAVE AN EARTHQUAKE, AND

THEY'RE DEVASTATING.

THE MORE PEOPLE YOU HAVE

ON THE PLANET, THE MORE OF

A DISASTER.

BUT THESE ARE HORRIBLE

HURRICANES.

I CANNOT REMEMBER ONE

AFTER THE OTHER OF THESE

MASSIVE HURRICANES.

THE ISLANDS OF THE

CARIBBEAN ARE JUST BEING

DECIMATED.

WHAT WE DO IS REACH OUT

AND HELP PEOPLE.

WE DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO

ALLEVIATE THEIR SUFFERING.

AND WE CERTAINLY WANT TO

PRAY FOR THEM.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE

WORLD, PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

GIVEN NORTH KOREA ANOTHER

WARNING ABOUT ITS NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

STARK, STRONG LEADERSHIP.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: WELL, PAT,

PRESIDENT TRUMP GAVE THAT

WARNING, AS YOU SAID, TO

NORTH KOREA DURING HIS

FIRST ADDRESS TO THE

UNITED NATIONS ON TUESDAY,

TELLING THE NORTH THAT THE

UNITED STATES WILL DESTROY

IT IF IT HAS TO.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIC

GONZALES HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: NORTH

KOREA'S AMBASSADOR WAS IN

THE FRONT ROW, BUT WAS

SEEN LEAVING BEFORE

PRESIDENT TRUMP SPOKE

BEFORE THE 193 MEMBERS OF

THE UNITED NATIONS.

THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF PUT

THE ROGUE NATION ON

NOTICE.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED ON

DELEGATES TO WORK TOGETHER

AGAINST NORTH KOREA'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAM, STATING

IF THE RIGHTEOUS MANY DO

NOT CONFRONT THE WICKED

FEW, THEN EVIL WILL

TRIUMPH.

President Trump:

ROCKETMAN IS ON A SUICIDE

MISSION FOR HIMSELF, AND

FOR HIS REGIME.

Reporter: WHILE THE

PRESIDENT PRAISED RECENT

U.N. SANCTIONS AGAINST

PYONGYANG, HE EMPHASIZED

HIS ADMINISTRATION WOULD

TAKE ACTION IF KIM JONG-UN

CONTINUES TO THREATEN THE

UNITED STATES AND

DESTABILIZE EAST ASIA.

President Trump: NO

NATION ON EARTH HAS AN

INTEREST IN SEEING THIS

BAND OF CRIMINALS ARM

ITSELF WITH NUCLEAR

WEAPONS AND MISSILES.

THE UNITE UNITED STATES HAS

GREAT STRENGTH AND

PATIENCE, BUT IF IT IS

FORCED TO DEFEND ITSELF OR

ITS ALLIES, WE WILL HAVE

NO CHOICE BUT TO TOTALLY

DESTROY NORTH KOREA.

IT WAS A VERY STRONG

SPEECH.

I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER

HEARD A PRESIDENT THREATEN

TO DESTROY ANOTHER

COUNTRY.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

SPOKE WITH SENIOR EDITOR

BILL GERTZ.

HE BELIEVES NORTH KOREA

HAS ALREADY PROVEN

SANCTIONS ARE INEFFECTIVE.

HIS IDEA, INFORMATION

WARFARE.

INSTEAD OF IMPOSING

MORE SANCTIONS, WHICH

HAVEN'T WORKED FOR OVER A

DECADE.

LET'S LOOSEN SANCTIONS ON

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

INFRASTRUCTURE, COMPUTERS

AND CELL PHONES.

LET'S GET THE COUNTRY

WIRED UP, AND THEN LET'S

FLOOD IT WITH REAL,

TRUTHFUL INFORMATION ABOUT

THAT REGIME.

Reporter: JAMES

MATTIS BACKED UP NIKKI

HALEY'S STATEMENTS BY

TELLING REPORTER ON MONDAY

THAT THE UNITED STATES IS

READY TO TAKE CARE OF THE

SITUATION.

AMBASSADOR NIKKI HALEY

IS SCRECT, THER CORRECT, THERE ARE MANY

MILITARY OPTIONS WE WILL

TAKE TO DEFEND OUR COUNTRY

AND OUR ALLIES.

Reporter: AT 35 MILES

FROM THE NORTH KOREAN

BORDER, SEOUL LIES WELL

WITHIN OUR ARTILLERY

RANGE.

AND NORTH KOREA IS ALSO

BELIEVED TO HAVE A

SIZEABLE CHEMICAL AND

BIOLOGICAL ARSENAL.

THE SECRETARY DID EXPLAIN

WHY THEIUS HA THE U.S. HAS NOT SHOT

DOWN ANY KOREAN MISSILES.

THE BOTTOM LINE, THE

MISSILES, WHETHER THEY BE

A THREAT TO THE U.S.

TERRITORY, GUAM, AND

OBVIOUSLY JAPANESE

TERRITORY, THAT WOULD

ILLICIT A DIFFERENT

RESPONSE FROM US.

Reporter: MATTIS

WOULDN'T SAY ANY MORE

ABOUT THE MILITARY PLANS,

BUT DID CONFIRM HE

DISCUSSED WITH HIS SOUTH

KOREAN COUNTER-PART THE

IDEA OF INTRODUCING

NUCLEAR WEAPONS TO THE

KOREAN PENINSULA.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: THANKS, ERIC.

> ON THE PRESIDENT'S

SCHEDULE TODAY, A MEETING

WITH JAPANESE PRIME

MINISTER AND THE SOUTH

KOREAN PRESIDENT TO

DISCUSS NORTH KOREA.

> PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I JUST WANT TO

TELL EVERYBODY NUCLEAR WAR

IS HIDEOUS, HORRIBLE.

YOU SEE WHAT WAS DONE IN

HIROSHIMA AND IN NAGASAKI,

JAPAN, AT THE END OF THE

SECOND WORLD WAR.

THE DEATH TOLL WAS

HORRIFIC.

AND THE SUFFERING IS

BEYOND MEASURE.

TO LOOSE THIS JEANNIE UPON

THE KOREAN PENINSULA OR

ANYWHERE ELSE IS, FRANKLY,

UNTHINKABLE.

BUT WHAT KIM JONG-UN IS

DOING IS TELLING PEOPLE WE

ARE GOING TO INCINERATE

THE UNITED STATES.

AND WE HAVE WEAPONS THAT

CAN DO IT.

WE'RE BUILDING THERMAL

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

WE HAVE HYDROGEN BOMBS,

THE BIG, POWERFUL ONES,

THAT MAY HAVE 50, 60 TIMES

THE POWER OF THE NUKES

DROPPED ON NAGASAKI, AND

WE WILL USE THEM IN THE

UNITED STATES.

WE WILL INCINERATE YOU.

THAT'S WHAT THAT OLD

MAN -- THAT YOUNG KID IS

SAYING.

IS HE CRAZY?

IS IT BLUSTER?

WHAT IS IT?

WELL, WE CANNOT ALLOW THAT

TO HAPPEN.

SO THE CHOICES BEFORE OUR

LEADERSHIP ARE JUST

HORRENDOUS.

AND I WOULD CALL ON PRAYER

FOR EVERYONE.

THEY NEED THE WISDOM OF

GOD ALMIGHTY.

BUT THERE IS NO EASY

SOLUTION.

BUT THE THING IS, ONCE THE

JEANNIE IS OUT OF THE

BOTTLE, GOD HELP EVERY ONE

OF US.

JOHN?

John: PAT, WELL HERE

IN WASHINGTON, SENATE

REPUBLICANS TENTATIVELY

HAVE AGREED ON A PLAN FOR

A MAJOR TAX CULT.

THE GOACUT.

THE GOAL IS TO STRENGTHEN

THE ECONOMY.

THE TAX PLAN HAS BEEN ONE

OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S TOP

PRIORITIES, ALTHOUGH SOME

HAVE PUSHED FOR A REFORM

OF THE OVERALL TAX CODE.

OTHERS SAY THE REPUBLICANS

WILL HAVE TO FOCUS ON TAX

CUTS FOR NOW.

WRITING FOR FORBES

MAGAZINE, STEVE FORBES

SAYS THERE SIMPLY ISN'T

ENOUGH TIME FOR

SIGNIFICANT OVERHAUL OF

THE TAX CODE.

HE SAYS REPUBLICANS SHOULD

JUST AIM FOR BIG TAX CUTS,

AND IF CHANGES ARE NEEDED,

DO THEM LATER, BUT DO THE

TAX CUTS IMMEDIATELY.

PAT, IT LOOKS LIKE

SOMETHING YOU HAVE BEEN

SAYING.

Pat: IT'S THE SAME

THING.

I WANT TO CONGRATULATE

STEVE FORBES.

IT IS A TREMENDOUS

PUBLICATION.

IT IS READ BY MANY, MANY

PEOPLE, INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE

IN THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY.

AND STEVE HAS BEEN A

LEADER IN TERMS OF RACIAL

RATIONAL ANALYSIS OF

MONETARY POLICY, HE IS AT

THE FOREFRONT.

MY CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU,

STEVE.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR YOU AT

FORBES MAGAZINE.

Wendy: KIM JONG-UN,

HE WANTS TO BLOW UP

AMERICA, BY WHY?

WHAT ARE THE MOTIVES

BEHIND HIM -- JUST BECAUSE

HE CAN?

Pat: I THINK WHEN

YOU'RE EGO-CENTERED,

EGO-DRIVEN, YOU WANT TO BE

A BIG SHOT.

AND THE WAY TO BE A BIG

SHOT IS TO TWEAK THE TAIL

OF THE BIG TIGER.

AND THAT'S THE U.S.

AND SO HE LOOKS STRONG IN

THE EYES OF HIS PEOPLE.

HE DOESN'T REALIZE WHAT

THE CONSEQUENCES OF THESE

ACTS ARE.

HE IS A KID.

HE'S NOT AN EXPERIENCED

DIPLOMAT OR LEADER.

HE IS A KID.

AND HE HAS BEEN RAISED IN

A BUBBLE.

THEY DON'T HAVE THE ACCESS

TO THE NEWS THAT WE DO.

Wendy: YEAH.

Pat: AND HE DOESN'T

UNDERSTAND THE

CONSEQUENCES OF HIS

ACTIONS.

SO, I MEAN -- WHAT WOULD

YOU DO IF YOU HAD A

5-YEAR-OLD OR 10-YEAR-OLD,

AND HE GETS HIS HANDS ON A

.45 FULLY ARMED.

AND HE COMES RUNNING

DOWNSTAIRS, LOOK, MOMMY --

Wendy: WE'VE GOT TO

PRAY.

AND PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS.

Pat: IT IS A CRIME

FAMILY THAT IS RUNNING A

COUNTRY.

IT IS A CRIME FAMILY.

HIS GRANDFATHER WAS PUT IN

PLACE BY THE RUSSIANS.

HE WAS A LIEUTENANT

COLONEL AND HE WAS PUT IN

BY THE RUSSIANS AS A

RUSSIAN PUPPET.

AND THEY HAVE DEAFIED HIM

AND MADE HIM INTO A GOD.

THE IMPRESSION OF THE

KOREAN PEOPLE IS SIMPLY

APPALLING.

I DON'T KNOW IF BILL GERTZ

SAID -- LET'S WIRE THEM,

HE SAID, BUT THAT'S A

LITTLE LATE.

WE OUGHT TO START WITH SYN

CYBER-WARFARE.

WE CAN SHUT THEM DOWN.

IF N.S.A. GETS ON THE

CASE, WE CAN CRIPPLE THEM.

I THINK THAT'S THE WAY TO

GO RATHER THAN TALK ABOUT

NUCLEAR BOMBS.

Wendy: UP NEXT, A

FORMER FELON MEETS THE

JUDGE WHO PUT HIM AWAY.

THAT'S THE JUDGE WHO

SENTENCED ME.

I SAID, ARE WE OKAY?

Wendy: HEAR THE

ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION,

COMING UP.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I'M HERE WITH MY LOVELY

CO-HOSTESS, WENDY

GRIFFITH.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WARMEST GOD BLES Wendy: GOD BLESS YOU.

GREAT TO BE WITH YOU.

PAUL WILBUR IS HERE AND HE

WILL BE SINGING ISRAELI

BLUE.

Pat: WE'RE DRESSED

FOR ISRAEL.

> THE WHITE HOUSE IS

POINTING TO CRIME-FIGHTING

METHODS IN TEXAS, AND AN

EXAMPLE FOR THE NATION TO

FOLLOW.

THE LONE STAR STATE'S

CRIME RATE IS FALLING, AND

IT IS ACTUALLY PUTTING

FEWER PEOPLE BEHIND BARS

BY GOING FROM A LOCK 'EM

UP MENTALITY TO ONE OF

REHABILITATION.

JOHN JESSUP SHOWS US AN

EXTRAORDINARY EXAMPLE OF

HOW IT IS CHANGING LIVES

FOR PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES

OF THE SYSTEM.

John: AS A FORMER

POLICE OFFICER,

PROSECUTOR, AND JUDGE,

ROBERT NUSOM WOULD APPEAR

TO TYPIFY TEXAS LAW AND

ORDER.

WHEN HE JUDGES CASES,

HOWEVER, HE FOLLOWS TO

ANOTHER PRINCIPLES:

JUSTICE AND COMPASSION.

MY TRADITIONAL

PHILOSOPHY IS, YES, I

BELIEVE IN THE LAW.

I PROMOTE THE LAW, AND I

STAND WITH THE LAW.

BUT ON THE OTHER HAND,

THERE IS A PLACE FOR MERCY

BUILT INTO OUR LAW.

Reporter: THIS IS A

PICTURE-PERFECT TOWN

SQUARE, BUT LIKE MOST

STORIES LIFE HAS SOME

TWISTS AND TURNS.

JUDGE NUSOM MET A YOUNG

MAN IN HIS COURTHOUSE THAT

WAS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF

THE STREET.

Reporter: HE FELL

INTO A LIFE OF CRIME AT

THE AGE OF 16.

A JURY HAMMERED HIM WITH A

LIFE SENTENCE.

I SET ABOUT MAKING A

REPUTATION FOR MYSELF, A

LIFE FOR MYSELF, IN THE

PRISON.

I BECAME REALLY VIOLENT.

Reporter: HE JOINED A

PRISON GANG, FOUGHT

INMATES AND STAFF, AND

RACKED UP 250 PRISON

VIOLATIONS.

THEY PUT HIM IN SOLITARY

FOR 15 YEARS.

HE TURNED TO GOD AND A

WARN OUT BIBLE.

HALF THE PAGES WERE

MISSING BECAUSE I WAS

SMOKING CIGARETTES WITH

THE BIBLE PAGES.

ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS THE

NEW TESTAMENT.

Reporter: HE LEARNED

ABOUT GRACE, FORGIVENESS,

AND GOD'S LOVE.

SO HE LEFT THE GANG FOR A

BIBLE STUDY.

IN 2012, RON EXPERIENCED

HIS FIRST MIRACLE: A

SURPRISE REVIEW THAT

RESULTED IN PAROLE MORE

THAN 80 YEARS BEFORE HIS

PROJECTED RELEASE IN 2095.

I DIDN'T THINK TWIEW IT WAS

REAL UNTIL I ACTUALLY GOT

OUT OF THE GATE.

Reporter: ONCE OUT OF

PRISON, HE FOUND WORK AND

BEGAN SHARING THIS STORY

AT CHURCHES AND

CONFERENCES.

THAT'S HOW HE MET HIS

WIFE, ALSO A FORMER FELON,

AND NOW AN ORDAINED

MINISTER AND A LICENSED

CHRISTIAN COUNSELLOR.

THEN ONE DAY WHILE SITTING

IN CHURCH, HE RAN INTO

SOMEONE FROM HIS PAST.

IT DAWNED ON ME -- I

TOLD THE PASTOR, I THINK

THAT IS THE JUDGE WHO

SENTENCED ME.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, I DON'T

THINK SO.

AFTERWARDS I WENT UP TO

RON.

HE CAME UP TO ME AND HE

SAID, ARE WE OKAY?

I FELT MY HEART GO OUT TO

HIM.

HE GRABBED ME AND

HUGGED ME REAL BIG.

IT WAS GOOD.

Reporter: BURYING

THEIR PAST, THE JUDGE AND

THE MAN HE PUT AWAY FORGED

A FUTURE BASED ON FAITH.

I NEVER DID GO TO

PRISON.

I NEVER DID SOME OF THE

THINGS THAT RON HAS DONE,

BUT I'M A SINGER, SAVED BY

GRACE, JUST LIKE RONNIE

IS.

WE'RE BROTHERS.

Reporter: THIS NEW

RELATIONSHIP INCLUDES

GETTING TOGETHER EACH WEEK

AT THE JUDGE'S HOME, WHERE

NEIGHBORS, FAMILY, AND

OTHER FORMER CONVICTS

SPEND TIME TOGETHER

SINGING AND PRAYING.

*

* THAT'S WHO YOU ARE

TO GO IN THE JUDGE'S

LIVING ROOM AND HAVE THEM

TREAT ME JUST LIKE ONE OF

THE FAMILY, YOU KNOW -- IT

WAS JUST REALLY AWESOME.

GOD JUST DEVELOPED A

RELATIONSHIP -- HIM AND

HIS WIFE ARE LIKE MAMA AND

PAPA TO ME.

Reporter: AND THE

RIPPLE EFFECT OF THIS

UNLIKELY STORY EXPANDS

MUCH FURTHER INTO THE

COMMUNITY.

NOT LONG AFTER RON STEPPED

OUT OF PRISON, HE RETURNED

TO THE PLACE WHERE HE WAS

ONCE JAILED TO SHARE A

MESSAGE OF FREEDOM TO MEN

SEARCHING FOR HOPE AND

PURPOSE.

DON'T EVER DISCOUNT

ANYTHING WITH GOD.

BECAUSE ONCE HE IS IN YOUR

LIFE, HE IS WORKING

THROUGH EVERY DETAIL, MAN.

Reporter: IN THE ROOM

NEXT DOOR, HIS WIFE, DAWN,

SHARES HER STORY WITH THE

WOMEN IN JAIL.

* I ONCE WAS LOST

Reporter: RON'S

RELATIONSHIP WITH JUDGE

NUSOM OPENED THE DOOR FOR

HIM TO REACH OTHERS WHO

IDENTIFY WITH HIS STORY.

THEY CLING TO HIS EVERY

WORD, EAGER TO EXPERIENCE

THE SPIRITUAL FREEDOM HE

PROCLAIMS.

LET'S GIVE IT ALL TO

GOD, AND LET'S GET SET

FREE.

LORD, KNOW WHAT IS IN

THEIR LIVES.

Reporter: WHILE

CRITICS QUESTION THE

MERITS OF FAITH-BASED

PRISON PROGRAMS, THE

SHERIFF TELLS CBN NEWS

THIS ONE MAKES A

DIFFERENCE.

THROUGH RON AND DAWN'S

MINISTRY, EVEN SOME STAFF

HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED.

IT SPARKED A MINI REVIVAL

IN THE COUNTY.

RON BELIEVES THIS NEW

CHAPTER IS EVIDENCE OF GOD

REWRITING HIS PAST TO

CREATE A LASTING LEGACY.

IN THE VERY PLACE WHERE

I WAS SENTENCED TO DIE IN

PRISON, HE IS GOING TO USE

US TO BRING DEAD THINGS

BACK ALIVE.

AND THAT'S WHAT HE IS

DOING.

IN THE JAIL, IN THE PRAYER

MEETINGS, HE IS JUST

BRINGING DEAD THINGS TO

LIFE.

John: JOHN JESSUP,

CBN NEWS, IN SULPHUR

SPRINGS, TEXAS.

Pat: DON'T EVER GIVE

UP HOPE.

DON'T EVER GIVE UP HOPE.

THAT MAN LOST HOPE.

HE HAD FIVE SENTENCES OF

LIFE, EVERY ONE OF THEM.

YOU'RE GONE FOREVER.

YOU'RE GONE FOREVER.

BUT HE DIDN'T GIVE UP

HOPE.

AND GOD -- WHAT A STORY OF

RESTORATION.

GOD IS ON THE SIDE OF

RESTORING PEOPLE.

> ALL RIGHT, LET'S TAKE

SOME QUESTIONS.

Wendy: GREAT STORY.

> HERE IS ONE FROM RYAN.

HE SAYS, "HI, PAT, I'M

BEEN HEARING THAT THE

WORLD IS ABOUT TO END FROM

ALL OF THE EARTHQUAKE AND

HURRICANES AND THE SOLAR

ECLIPSE.

ARE THESE SIGNS FROM GOD

THAT THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO

END?"

Pat: RYAN, I DO NOT

SEE ANY SUCH THING.

I SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF

THIS THING, DO NOT SPIRIT

SPIRITALSPIRITSPIRITIZE THIS.

I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF

THAT FACT, AND IT

CERTAINLY ISN'T THE END OF

THE WORLD.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ON

GOING.

THERE ARE SOME MORE THINGS

FOR US TO DO.

THE GOSPEL WILL BE

PREACHED IN ALL OF THE

WORLD FOR ALL TO WITNESS,

THEN SHALL THE END COME.

THERE ARE MANY MORE THAT

NEED TO COME INTO THE

KINGDOM, FIRST OF ALL.

Wendy: AMEN.

> HERE IS ONE: "DOES

EVERYONE RECEIVE THE HOLY

SPIRIT WHEN BAPTIZED AS A

BABY, OR MUCH LATER AS AN

ADULT, WHEN SALVATION IS

RECEIVED?

DID THE DISCIPLES RECEIVE

THE HOLY SPIRIT OF BAPTISM

OR IN THE UPPER ROOM?"

Pat: THE DISCIPLES

RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT

WHEN THEY ACCEPTED JESUS.

HE BREATHED ON THEM AND HE

SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

THAT WAS AN INITIAL

IN-FILLING.

BUT THE POWER CAME ON THE

DAY OF PENTECOST, WHEN

THEY WERE -- THERE IS AN

IN-FILLING OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

IF I HAVE A GLASS OF

WATER -- I'VE GOT A GLASS

OF SOMETHING HERE -- THIS

IS TEA.

ALL RIGHT.

I HAVE THIS TEA IN THIS

CUP.

SO I TAKE A SIP OF THIS,

AND IT GOES INTO ME.

AND I HAVE TEA IN ME.

BUT IF I GO DOWN TO THE

OCEAN, WHICH IS A FEW

MILES AWAY FROM ME, AND I

JUMP IN THE OCEAN, I'M

SUDDENLY CONNECTED WITH

ALL OF THE OCEANS ON THE

FACE OF THE EARTH.

AND I'M IMMERSED IN THE

WATER.

ONE IS BAPTISM.

THE OTHER IS A LITTLE SIP.

Wendy: AMEN.

I WANT THE OCEAN.

> JAMES SAYS, "DID

PEOPLE GO IN THE HEAVEN IN

THE PAST, BEFORE THE BIBLE

WAS WRITTEN?

HOW WOULD THEY KNOW THE

TRUTH IF THE BIBLE DIDN'T

EXIST YET?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

GOD'S POWER AND GRACE WAS

MADE MANIFEST TO PEOPLE BY

THE THINGS THAT HE MADE.

ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS LOOK

AT THE SUN, LOOK AT THE

STARS, LOOK AT YOURSELF,

LOOK AT YOUR HAND, LOOK AT

THE MIRACLE THAT YOU ARE.

AND THE HEAVENS DECLARE

THE GLORY OF GOD.

THE EARTH SHOWS FORTH HIS

HANDY WORK.

YOU DON'T NEED IT IN A

BOOK.

THE BOOK HAS MADE IT NICE,

SO WE HAVE IT ALL CLEARED

OUT FOR US IN A NICE,

WRITTEN FORM.

BUT THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN

ON MEN'S HEARTS A LONG

TIME BEFORE THAT.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "WILL GOD ALWAYS

STAY WITH US AND FIGHT FOR

US THROUGH OUR ENTIRE

LIFE?

OR WILL THERE EVER BE A

TIME WHEN ENOUGH IS

ENOUGH, AND GOD JUST GIVES

UP ON US?"

Pat: GOD IS NEVER

GOING TO GIVE UP.

GOD IS NEVER GOING TO GIVE

UP ON YOU.

HE IS FAITHFUL TO THE END.

AND HE IS NOT GIVING UP ON

YOU OR ME, THANK GOD.

Wendy: THANK GOD.

> WELL, COMING UP, A

NEUROSURGEON HAS A GRIM

PROGNOSIS FOR A WIFE AND

MOTHER WHO FRACTURED HER

SKULL.

SHE CAN DETERIORATE

REALLY FAST, TO THE POINT

OF NO RETURN.

HER BREATHING CAN STOP.

HER HEART CAN STOP.

SHE COULD BE DEAD IN AN

HOUR, MAYBE NOT EVEN THAT.

Wendy: WATCH HOW THIS

WOMAN MAKES A MIRACULOUS

COMEBACK IN JUST NINE

DAYS.

STAY TUNED.

Wendy: WELL, THIS IS

DAY THREE OF OUR ANNUAL

"SEVEN DAYS ABLAZE".

DOCTOR THIS WEEK, WE SET

ASIDE A SPECIAL TIME OF

PRAYER FOR YOU, OUR

VIEWERS AND PARTNERS.

BOTH ON THE AIR AND DURING

OUR NOON CHAPELS.

YESTERDAY AT NOON,

AMERICA'S PASTOR MAX

LUCADO WAS OUR FEATURED

SPEAKER.

TAKE A LOOK.

THE UNITED STATES IS

NOW CONSIDERED THE MOST

ANXIOUS NATION ON THE

PLANET.

THE AVERAGE CHILD TODAY

EXHIBITS THE SAME LEVEL OF

ANXIETY AS THE AVERAGE

PSYCHIATRIC PATIENT OF THE

1950s.

THERE IS A PATHWAY OUT OF

THE VALLEY OF THREAT.

IT READS LIKE THIS: "BE

ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING.

LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE

KNOWN TO GOD.

AND THE PEACE OF GOD,

WHICH SURPASSES ALL

UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD

YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS

THROUGH CHRIST JESUS."

THE NEXT TIME YOUR

ANXIOUS, MAKE A LIST OF 10

THINGS YOU'RE GRATEFUL

FOR.

BY THE TIME YOU GET TO

NUMBER FIVE, YOU'LL NOTICE

THAT ANXIETY HAS LEFT.

BECAUSE ANXIETY REFUSES TO

SHARE THE HEART WITH

GRATITUDE.

THE NEXT TIME ANXIETY

AWAKENS YOU AT 2:30 IN THE

MORNING, CELEBRATE GOD.

ASK GOD FOR HELP.

LEAVE YOUR CONCERNS WITH

HIM AND ME MEDITATE ON GOOD

THINGS.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

AMEN.

[APPLAUSE]

Wendy: AMEN.

WE LOVE MAX LUCADO.

IF YOU HAVEN'T YET MAILED

US YOUR PRAYER REQUESTS,

IT IS NOT TOO LATE.

CALL US AT 1-800-700-7000.

OR YOU CAN GO TO cbn.com

AND DO IT THAT WAY.

PAT?

Pat: WE'LL BE PRAYING

FOR YOU IN JUST A FEW

MINUTES.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN

PRAYER.

I I BELIEVI BELIEVE IN ANSWERED

PRAYER.

I HAD AN ACCIDENT

INVOLVING A RUN-AWAY

HORSE.

IT'S CRAZY.

A HIGHLY TRAINED HORSE,

HIGHLY TRAINED RIDER.

BUT WE'VE GOT AN AMAZING

STORY ABOUT ANOTHER

RUN-AWAY HORSE.

TABITHA'S HORSE BOLTED,

AND SHE APPARENTLY DIDN'T

HAVE A HELMET ON, AND SHE

FRACTURED HER SKULL.

BUT SHE MANAGED TO

SURVIVE.

AND DOCTORS SAID SHE WOULD

MOST LIKELY HAVE SERIOUS

BRAIN DAMAGE, BUT HER

MOTHER SAID, NO WAY.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY AND

BELIEVE GOD.

SO WATCH WHAT HAPPENED.

Reporter: TABITHA

HAIL HAD BEEN TRAINING FOR

WEEKS TO TAKE HER FIRST

TRAIL RIDE ON HORSEBACK.

IN MARCH OF 2016, E SHE SHE AND

HER MOTHER WERE RIDING

AROUND THEIR FARM WHEN

TABITHA'S HORSE BOLTED.

I WAS YELLING, HOLD ON,

BABY, DON'T PANIC.

SHE GOES AROUND THIS

LITTLE CURB CUR CURVE, AND I LOST

COMPLETE SIGHT OF HER.

Reporter: SHE TURNED

THE CORNER TO FIND HER

FACE DOWN, IN BLOOD

RUNNING OUT OF HER EARS.

I WENT INTO, GOD, HELP

ME.

SHOW ME.

SHOW ME WHAT YOU CAN DO IN

THIS MOMENT RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: PARAMEDICS

TOOK HER TO NORTHEAST

GEORGIA MEDICAL CENTER.

BY THEN, KIM HAD CALLED

HER HUSBAND, JACOB, WHO

WAS AT HOME WITH THEIR

FOUR BOYS.

AT THE HOSPITAL, THEY

LEARNED TABITHA HAD

FRACTURED HER SKULL,

CAUSINGORCAUSING HER BRAIN TO SWELL

AND BLEED.

WHEN YOU CAN'T TALK TO

HER AND SHE IS

UNCONSCIOUS, IT IS A SCARY

MOMENT.

Reporter: THE

NEUROSURGEON SAID THE

SWELLING WAS GETTING

WORSE, AND SHE NEEDED

IMMEDIATE SURGERY TO

REMOVE PART OF HER SKULL,

TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE ON

HER BRAIN.

IF IT SWELLS A LITTLE

MORE, IT CAN PRESS ON THE

BRAINSTEM AND SHE CAN

DETERIORATE REALLY FAST,

TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN.

HER BREATHING CAN STOP.

HER HEART CAN STOP.

AND SHE'LL BE BRAIN-DEAD

IN A MATTER OF AN HOUR,

MAYBE NOT EVEN THAT.

Reporter: FRIENDS AND

FAMILY GATHERED AT THE

HOSPITAL AND SPREAD THE

WORD, ASKING PEOPLE TO

PRAY FOR A MIRACLE.

I SAID, GOD, YOU GAVE

HER TO ME.

YOU HAVE BLESSED ME WITH

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE

CHILD.

AND I'M GOING TO HAVE TO

TRUST YOU.

Reporter: TABITHA

MADE IT THROUGH SURGERY,

BUT DR. JACOB WARNED THE

FAMILY THAT SHE COULD BE

PHYSICALLY OR MENTALLY

IMPAIRED.

I GUESS MY BIGGEST FEAR

IN THE WHOLE THING IS THAT

SHE WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE ME

OR OUR BOYS.

I WASN'T WORRIED ABOUT HER

BEING IN A WHEELCHAIR OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT -- I

JUST WANTED HER TO KNOW

WHO WE WERE.

Reporter: WITH

TABITHA IN AND OUT OF CON

CONSCIOUSNESS, ANY SMALL

SIGN GAVE THE FAMILY HOPE.

THEY TOOK THIS PEN AND

THEY RAN IT DOWN HER FOOT,

AND HER TOES WIGGLED.

AND IT WAS CRAZY THAT

SOMETHING SO SIMPLE AS

SEEING HER TOES WIGGLE

WOULD JUST SEND YOU ALMOST

INTO A SHOUTING MODE.

IT'S, LIKE, OH, THANK YOU,

GOD.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE SEEING

YOUR CHILD WALK FOR THE

FIRST TIME AGAIN.

I TOLD HER THAT, YOU

KNOW, I LOVED HER.

AND SHE TRIED TO TELL ME

SHE LOVED ME BACK.

SHE'S MY BEST FRIEND.

THE LOVE OF MY LIFE.

Reporter: ON DAY

THREE, TABITHA MET CANDY

JARVIS, A CRITICAL CARE

NURSE WHO STARTED WORKING

WITH TABITHA TO GET HER

OFF THE VENTILATOR AS SOON

AS POSSIBLE.

I WANTED HER TO BE ABLE

TO SPEAK TO HER FAMILY, SO

THEY WOULD KNOW SHE WAS IN

THERE.

Reporter: SHE ALSO

BELIEVED TABITHA NEEDED

MORE THAN MEDICAL CARE.

THE POWER OF PRAYER

CANNOT BE MINIMIZED IN

THESE RECOVERY PROCESS.

CANDY LOOKED AT

TABITHA, AND SHE SAID,

TABITHA, I NEED YOU, WITH

GOD'S HELP, TO GIVE ME THE

BIGGEST BREATH YOU'VE GOT.

AT THAT MOMENT, YOU COULD

SEE THE FIGHT IN HER, AND

SHE TOOK THE DEEPEST

BREATH.

Reporter: BY NOON,

TABITHA WAS BREATHING ON

HER OWN AND TAKEN OFF THE

VENTILATOR.

BUT THAT WASN'T ALL.

SHE LOOKED OVER AT HER

HUSBAND, AND SHE SAID,

DON'T EVER LET THEM DO

THAT AGAIN.

AT LEAST I KNEW I COULD

TALK TO HER AGAIN AND SHE

WAS GOING TO TALK TO ME.

WHEN PEOPLE WOULD COME

IN, PEOPLE WOULD ASK ME,

TABITHA, DO YOU KNOW WHO

THIS IS?

AND I WAS, LIKE, YES, I

KNOW WHO THIS IS, AND I

WOULD SAY THEIR NAME.

AND AFTER EVERYBODY LEFT,

I SAID, IF YOU ALL ASK ME

ONE MORE TIME WHO SOMEBODY

IS, I THINK I'M GOING TO

COME OFF THE BED.

Reporter: SHE WAS

WALKING ON HER OWN POWER,

CLIMBING STEPS, AND

CARRYING ON CONVERSATIONS.

NINE DAYS AFTER THE

ACCIDENT, SHE WAS SENT

HOME.

EVEN THE PHYSICAL

THERAPIST THAT WAS THERE,

HE WAS, LIKE, THIS DOES

NOT HAPPEN.

THAT WAS A BIG WOW FOR

ME, THAT I KNEW, OKAY,

WE'RE ON THE DOWNHILL

SLIDE NOW.

THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD.

Reporter: DR. JACOB

LATER REPAIRED TABITHA'S

SKULL.

AND THEN JUST THREE AND A

HALF MONTHS AFTER THE

ACCIDENT, SHE RETURNED TO

WORK WITH NO RESTRICTIONS.

SHE HAS DONE REALLY

WELL, CONSIDERING THE

INJURY SHE HAD.

IT IS REALLY GRATIFYING

FOR PEOPLE LIKE US, WHEN

WE SEE THINGS LIKE THAT,

BECAUSE IT IS NOT

HAPPENING EVERY DAY.

EVEN THOUGH WE TRIED TO DO

OUR BEST.

IN THAT SCENARIO, IN THAT

CONTEXT, I THINK THERE WAS

A MIRACULOUS EVENT

OCCURRING.

HOW CAN YOU NOT BELIEVE

IN GOD?

I'VE SEEN HIM WORK.

Reporter: TABITHA

DOESN'T REMEMBER THE

ACCIDENT, BUT SHE KNOWS

FOR SURE SHE WAS ALWAYS IN

GOD'S HANDS.

IT JUST SHOWED ME THAT

EVEN WHEN WE FEEL

INADEQUATE, AND WHY ARE WE

EVEN HERE, GOD, THAT HE

STILL THINKS THAT WE ARE

SO AMAZING, AND THAT HE

CARES THAT MUCH FOR US.

Reporter: IT IS WITH

THAT CONFIDENCE THAT

TABITHA DECIDED IT WAS

TIME TO GET BACK IN THE

SADDLE.

NO MATTER WHAT COMES UP

AGAINST ME, IT IS NOT

GOING TO BRING ME DOWN AS

LONG AS I KNOW THAT GOD

HAS ME BY THE HAND, AND HE

IS CARRYING ME THROUGH,

AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.

Pat: AMAZING STORY.

FOLKS, WE ARE SURROUNDED

BY PRAYER TODAY.

THIS WEEK OF PRAYER,

THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF

CALLS HAVE COME TO US, AND

PEOPLE HAVE WRITTEN IN

PRAYER REQUESTS.

YOU, ALL OVER THIS

AUDIENCE, HAVE SAID, WE

WANT YOU TO PRAY FOR US.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

WEDNESDAY AND WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

PRAY.

SOMEBODY WRITES IN AND

SAYS, LOOK, I'VE GOT SKIN

CANCER, AND THEY WANT

PRAYER.

SOMEBODY SAYS THEY'RE

HAVING THE AFTERMATH OF A

STROKE, AND I NEED PRAYER

TO BE COMPLETELY HEALED.

SOMEBODY NEEDS TO BE SET

FREE FROM DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL AND MENTAL

ILLNESS.

Wendy: HERE IS ONE,

PAT, HEALING FROM

COLORECTAL CANCER.

ANOTHER ONE TO BE HEALED

FROM FIBROMYALGIA.

THIS PERSON NEEDS

FINANCIAL PROVISION TO PAY

FOR MY MEDICATIONS AND

SURGERY FOR MY HUSBAND.

AND THIS MOTHER AND

DAUGHTER NEED TO BE

DELIVERED FROM OVEREATING.

THEY NEED TO LOSE

100 POUNDS.

Pat: OKAY.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

NOW.

I'M GOING TO JOIN HANDS

WITH WENDY, AND WE'RE

GOING TO PRAY TOGETHER.

AND WE'RE GOING TO JOIN

WITH YOU.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS IF TWO

OF YOU WILL AGREE ON

ANYTHING, TOUCHING IT, IT

WILL BE DONE FOR THEM BY

MY FATHER IN HEAVEN.

GIVE ME A CLOSE-UP,

DIRECTOR, OF ALL THESE

PRAYER REQUESTS.

THERE THEY ARE.

THEY COME FROM ALL OVER

AMERICA AND OTHER PARTS OF

THE WORLD.

WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS AND BELIEVE

GOD.

FATHER, I BELIEVE, GOD,

YOU ARE ABLE TO DO

EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY

ABOVE ALL WE ASK OR THINK.

LORD, WE CANNOT CONCEIVE

OF ANYBODY AS WONDERFUL AS

YOU ARE.

LORD, YOU BROUGHT THE

STARS INTO BEING.

YOU BROUGHT THE SUN AND

THE MOON AND THE STARS AND

THE WORTH, AND EVERYBODY

THAT IS IN IT.

YOU CREATED MANKIND ON THE

EARTH.

NOW, LORD, FIXING THIS

PROBLEMS TO YOU IS

NOTHING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

SPEAK THE WORD, AND IT

WILL BE DONE.

LORD, IN YOUR NAME AS YOUR

SERVANTS, WE COME BEFORE

YOU NOW WITH THESE

REQUESTS.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE

SPEAK THE WORD OVER THESE

THOUSANDS OF REQUESTS THAT

HAVE COME TO US.

WE BELIEVE GOD RIGHT NOW

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

BE MADE WHOLE.

THIS FUNGUS AND THE

LUNGS -- I THINK I

MENTIONED TO YOU

YESTERDAY, THE LORD IS

HEALING IT.

WOULD YOU PLEASE TAKE IT

AND JUST COUGH AND BELIEVE

GOD NOW.

WENDY, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: SOMEONE, YOU

HAVE VERY PAINFUL TEETH

AND GUMS, ESPECIALLY YOUR

LOWER TEETH AND GUMS.

AND GOD IS TOUCHING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

JUST REJOICE.

YOU'RE BO BEING HEALED IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH

YOU.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE NAMED SUSAN, AND

YOU HAVE AN INFECTION.

I THINK IT IS IN YOUR HAND

OR YOUR THUMB, AND GOD IS

TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW,

SUSAN.

JUST RECEIVE THAT IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: THERE IS A MAN

AND HIS WIFE -- THE WIFE,

I BELIEVE, IS MARGUERITE.

LISTEN, YOU GUYS ARE GOING

TO GET TOGETHER.

THERE HAS BEEN PHYSICAL

VIOLENCE.

IT HAS BEEN AWFUL.

YOUR MARRIAGE HAS BEEN A

MESS, BUT GOD IS GOING TO

BRING RECONCILIATION.

Wendy: LORD, YOU ARE

BIGGER THAN CANCER, AND

WEE AGREE RIGHT NOW FOR

EVERYONE WHO IS GOING

THROUGH CANCER, LORD, TO

RECEIVE THEIR HEALING.

BY JESUS' STRIPES, YOU ARE

HEALED.

AMEN.

Pat: THANK YOU, LORD.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, JUST

CALL IN AND SHARE.

WE'D LOVE TO PRAY WITH

YOU.

IF YOU NEED FURTHER

PRAYER, JUST PICK UP THE

PHONE.

WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

WENDY?

Wendy: AMEN.

> STILL AHEAD, WORSHIP

ARTIST PAUL WILBUR JOINS

US LIVE TO KICK OFF

CELEBRATION OF ROSH

HASHANAH.

SO STAY TUNED.

*

* THANK GOD

AND WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

AN AFTER-SCHOOL SATAN CLUB

IS CLOSING DOWN ITS

PROGRAM IN AN ELEMENTARY

SCHOOL IN WASHINGTON,

AFTER ONLY ONE STUDENT

JOINED THE CLUB.

SIMILAR CLUBS HAVE BEEN

POPPING UP IN SCHOOLS

ACROSS THE NATION IN A

DIRECT EFFORT TO COUNTER

THE GOOD NEWS CLUBS.

THOSE CLUBS PRESENT THE

GOSPEL TO STUDENTS.

THE COUNCIL SAYS THE CLUBS

ARE LESS ABOUT SATANISM

AND MORE ABOUT ATHEISTS

SHUTTING DOWN FAITH-BASED

CLUBS.

> A CITY ORDINANCE

REQUIRES A WARNING ON ADS

FOR SODAS AND OTHER

SUGAR-SWEETENED BEVERAGES

THAT APPEAR ON BUSES,

BILLBOARDS, AND STRUCTURES

AROUND THE CITY.

BUT THE THREE-JUDGE PANEL

RULED THAT THE MEASURE WAS

MISLEADING AND WOULD

SUPPRESS THE FREE SPEECH

OF BUSINESSES.

> REMEMBER, YOU CAN

ALWAYS GET THE LATEST FROM

CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT cbnnews.com.

WE'RE RIGHT BACK WITH MUCH

MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

SUNDOWN THIS EVENING MARKS

THE BEGINNING OF THE

JEWISH NE NEW YEAR KNOWN AS

ROSH HASHANAH.

WE'LL BE CELEBRATING IN

THE REGENT UNIVERSITY

CHAPEL.

IT IS AT 7 p.m. EASTERN

TIME, AND WE'LL BE

LIVE-STREAMING THIS

AMAZING EVENT OF SONG,

DANCE, WORSHIP, AND

PRAYER.

OUR GUEST WILL BE

INTERNATIONAL GUEST

SPEAKER PAUL WILBUR.

Reporter: PAUL WILBUR

HAS TRAVELLED THE WORLD

WITH GUITAR IN HAND AND

WORSHIPPED IN OVER 75

NATIONS.

PAUL USUALLY LEADS

AUDIENCES IN WORSHIP AND

MESSIANIC SONGS.

BUT NOW HE BRINGS US HIS

UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE OF THE

RECENT ANTI-SEMITISM AND

ANTI-GOD CULTURE WE SEE

TODAY.

IN HIS BOOK, "A KING IS

COMING," PAUL DESCRIBES

WHY WE ARE EXPERIENCING

THIS DRAMATIC SHIFT AND

WHY WE ARE EXPERIENCING A

WORLD IN CRISIS.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB,"

THE AUTHOR OF "A KING

INCOMING," AND

INTERNATIONAL WORSHIP

SUPERSTAR.

I ADDED THAT BECAUSE IT IS

TRUE.

[LAUGHTER]

Wendy: PAUL, YOU'RE

LOOKING GREAT.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THE MAKEUP PEOPLE HERE ARE

TREMENDOUS.

Wendy: THEY REALLY,

REALLY ARE.

> WHY ARE WE SEEING AN

INCREASE IN ANTI-SEMITISM

RIGHT NOW IN THE WORLD?

IT IS LIKE THE

ANTI-CHRISTIANITY IS THE

NEW ANTI-SEMITISM.

PEOPLE, AS I TRAVEL, SAY

WHY ISIS?

WHY THE INCREASE IN

ANTI-SEMITISM?

WHY ALL OF THE TUMULT AND

UP ROAR?

AND THERE IS A SIMPLE

ANSWER TO IT ALL, AS I SEE

IT, AND IT IS BECAUSE A

KING OF COMING.

JESUS TOLD US IN THE LAST

DAYS THERE WILL BE

INCREASE IN WARS AND

NATURAL DISASTERS.

WE CALL THEM NATURAL, BUT

SOMETIMES I THINK THEY ARE

MAN-INSPIRED.

BUT, WENDY, THERE IS A

BATTLE THAT IS GOING ON

BEHIND WHAT IS SEEN.

BEHIND THIS -- I DON'T

WANT TO SOUND SO

RIDICULOUS, BUT THIS

FACADE OF ALL OF THE

NATURAL THAT SO ATTRACTS

OUR ATTENTION BECAUSE WE

LIVE IN A NATURAL WORLD.

BUT AS WE KNOW, THE

SPIRITUAL WORLD BIRTHED

ALL OF THE STUFF THAT WE

SEE.

Wendy: IT IS MORE

REAL THAN WE KNOW.

IT IS MORE REAL THAN WE

KNOW.

AND THERE IS A WAR GOING

ON FOR A THRONE.

I KNOW THERE IS A PROGRAM

THAT IS NOT VERY EDIFYING

CALLED "A GAME OF

THRONES."

BUT THE TITLE OF THAT WAS

SO PROVOKING TO ME.

WHEN I HEARD THAT TITLE, I

SAID, THAT'S IT.

THAT'S THE ANSWER TO ALL

THESE QUESTIONS.

BECAUSE THERE IS A BATTLE

FOR A THRONE.

NOW, THAT IS ONLY ONE KING

WHO HAS THE RIGHT BY BLOOD

AND BY AUTHORITY TO SIT ON

THAT THRONE.

BUT BEFORE RECORDED TIMES,

SATAN SAID TO GOD, I WILL

ESTABLISH MY THRONE ABOVE

YOURS, AND I WILL SIT IN

THE MOST HOLY PLACE.

THIS IS THE UNSEEN BATTLE

THAT WE WAGE EVERY DAY,

WHETHER WE KNOW IT OR NOT.

AND SO WHEN GOD GIVES US

EYES TO SEE, WE REALIZE.

IN MY BOOK, I NOT ONLY LAY

OUT THE PROBLEM, BUT ALSO,

ABOUT THE LAST THIRD, HOW

DO WE LIVE VICTORIOUSLY,

KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW?

HOW DO WE DEAL WITH DAY TO

DAY LIFE?

AND I WALK US THROUGH KIND

OF A PRESCRIPTION FOR

VICTORIOUS LIVING IN THESE

LAST DAYS.

Wendy: AND THIS IS

THE COVER, "A KING IS

COMING."

THERE ARE EARTHQUAKE,

SOLAR CLIPSS,

HURRICANES -- IS THERE A

MESSAGE FOR US?

I WOULD SAY THE MESSAGE

IS, BUILD YOUR HOUSE ON

SOLID ROCK.

JESUS TALKED ABOUT BE

CAREFUL OF SHIFTING SAND.

I LIVE IN FLORIDA.

WE KNOW WHAT IT IS

BUILDING ON SAND.

AS WE DRIVE THROUGH THE

STATE OF FLORIDA NOW,

BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE

HURRICANES AND ALL, THERE

ARE SINKHOLES ALL OVER THE

PLACE.

Wendy: POWER LINES

DOWN EVERYWHERE.

PEOPLE HAVE BUILT

BEAUTIFUL HOMES ON WHAT

THEY THOUGHT IT WAS A

SOLID FOUNDATION.

BUT YOU SEE THAT IT REALLY

ISN'T.

SPIRITUALLY, THAT IS A

LESSON FOR US.

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS --

YOU KNOW, THE LORD TOLD

US, THE WINDS MAY BLOW,

WHEN YOU WALK THROUGH THE

WATER, IT WILL NOT

OVERTAKE YOU, WHEN YOU

PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, YOU

WILL NOT BE BURNED, WE

NEED TO HAVE OUR FEET

PLANTED ON SOLID ROCK, AND

THAT IS JESUS.

Wendy: WAS YOUR

HOUSE?

OUR HOUSE, WE DIDN'T

HAVE ANY POWER DAMAGE OR

WIND DAMAGE.

IT WAS A 2 BY THE TIME IT

GOT TO US.

Wendy: WOW.

WHY DO YOU THINK AMERICA

HAS REMAINED IN SUCH A

POSITION OF FAVOR WITH

GOD?

THERE ARE TWO MAIN

REASONS.

THERE ARE TWO PILLARS,

LIKE THE PILLARS THAT HELD

UP THE PORCH OF THE

TEMPLES.

THERE ARE TWO PILLARS THAT

PROP UP AND HOLD UP THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

ONE IS THAT WE ARE A

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN SOCIETY.

THAT WE HAVE AT OUR

FOUNDATION -- THAT OUR

BIBLE IS THE REASON FOR

OUR EXISTING.

AND WE ARE SUPPORTERS OF

ISRAEL.

Wendy: UNDER THIS NEW

ADMINISTRATION, THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION, IT SEEMS

IT HAS NEVER BEEN THIS

GOOD BETWEEN ISRAEL AND

THE U.S.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN US -- NOT SPEAKING

POLITICALLY, BUT I BELIEVE

GOD HAS GIVEN US SEVEN

YEARS OF GRACE NOW.

THAT WE NEED TO TAKE FULL

ADVANTAGE OF AND BRING IN

THE HARVEST WHILE WE HAVE

THIS COVERING, BECAUSE WE

DON'T KNOW WHAT'S BEYOND

THERE.

AND IT'S A WISE SERVANT

WHO WILL USE WHAT THEY'VE

BEEN GIVEN.

AND I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS

GIVEN US REALLY AN

INCREDIBLE SEASON NOW TO

BE WHO WE ARE, TO DECLARE

IT AND PROCLAIM IT WITHOUT

FEAR, AND TO TAKE A HOLD

OF THAT FOR WHICH GOD HAS

TAKEN A HOLD OF US.

Wendy: THAT REALLY

RESONATES IN MY SPIRIT.

PAUL, YOU'LL BE LEADING US

TONIGHT IN WORSHIP OF ROSH

HASHANAH.

TELL US THE TITLE OF THE

SONG YOU'RE ABOUT TO

PERFORM FOR US RIGHT NOW

FROM YOUR NEW ALBUM.

IT IS PSALM 95.

THIS ONE I DID NOT WRITE.

I TOOK IT FROM A FRIEND IN

JERUSALEM.

THE HEBREW IS THE VERY

FIRST LINE OF PSALM 95,

LET US SING FOR JOY TO THE

LORD.

Wendy: I'M GOING TO

RELEASE YOU RIGHT NOW TO

GO GET READY TO PERFORM

FOR US.

AS PAUL GETS UP, PAUL

WILBUR'S NEW BOOK IS
