THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM

IS SPONSORED BY CBN.

Wendy: TODAY...WE

HEAD TO MINNEAPOLIS, HOME

OF SUPER BOWL 52.

PLAYERS FROM THE PATS AND

EAGLES SHARE THEIR

THOUGHTS AHEAD OF THE BIG

GAME.

> AND THEN...A MAN WHO

SPEAKS TO AN ESTIMATED

100 BILLION PEOPLE IN HIS

LIFETIME.

WE HAVE SEEN THE GLORY

OF GOD.

Wendy: RINE REINHARD

BONNKE DELIVERS A FAREWELL

MESSAGE ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

TERRY, THIS SUNDAY IS

GOING TO BE -- WE'RE GOING

TO WORSHIP AT THE ALTER OF

FOOTBALL...

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: AND THERE WILL

BE THE BIGGEST CROWD.

DO YOU KNOW IF YOU COULD

BUY 10 SECONDS OF THAT --

DO YOU HAVE IDEA HOW

MUCH --

Terry: I HAVE NO

IDEA.

HOW MUCH?

Pat: 30 SECONDS WOULD

COST $5 MILLION.

AND THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE

THE PRODUCTION.

OF COURSE THE PRODUCTION

IS ON TOP OF THAT.

THAT IS THE AIR TIME.

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE.

UNCONSCIONABLE.

Terry: BUT THEY'VE

BECOME SO CREATIVE IN

THOSE COMMERCIALS --

Pat: WELL, THEY

BETTER.

Terry: MANY WATCH THE

GAME FOR THE COMMERCIALS.

Pat: THAT IS

UNBELIEVABLE, TO PAY THAT

KIND OF MONEY.

BUT THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

AND WE JUST HEARD THAT FOX

HAS JUST SPRUNG -- IT'S IN

THE $6 MILLION RANGE OR

SOMETHING FOR THE THURSDAY

NIGHT GAME, JUST TO HAVE

ONE GAME A WEEK.

THEY PAY LIKE $660,000 FOR

ONE GAME.

Terry: THEY'LL GET

SOME VIEWERSHIP, YOU'VE

GOT TO SAY THAT.

Pat: I THOUGHT

FOOTBALL WAS LOSING ITS

RATINGS, AND LO AND BEHOLD

THE RATINGS --

Terry: THE PRICE TAG

HAS NEVER BEEN HIGHER.

Pat: ANYHOW, THAT'S

THE WAY IT IS.

> WELL, THERE IS A

POLITICAL SHOWDOWN OVER A

CLASSIFIED INTELLIGENCE

MEMO.

REPUBLICANS SAY IT SHOWS

THE F.B.I. AND THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT ABUSED ITS

SURVEILLANCE POWERS IN THE

INVESTIGATION OF THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN AND HIS POTENTIAL

TIES TO RUSSIA.

Terry: WELL, THE

PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICANS

ON THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE

COMMITTEE WANT THAT MEMO

RELEASED SOON, BUT THE

F.B.I. SAYS IT IS

CONCERNED ABOUT THE

REPORT'S ACCURACY.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: THE HOUSE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE,

LED BY CHAIRMAN DEVIN

NUNES, VOTED TO RELEASE

THE CLASSIFIED FOUR-PAGE

REPUBLICAN MEMO, BUT ONLY

AFTER A REVIEW BY THE

WHITE HOUSE AND F.B.I.

F.B.I. DIRECTOR

CHRISTOPHER WRAY AND ROD

ROSENSTEIN MET AT THE

WHITE HOUSE ON MONDAY WITH

CHIEF-OF-STAFF JOHN KELLY.

THEY EXPRESSED CONCERNS

OVER, QUOTE, "MATERIAL

OMISSIONS OF FACT THAT

FUNDAMENTALLY IMPACT THE

MEMO'S ACCURACY."

BUT MOMENTS AFTER THE

STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

ON TUESDAY NIGHT, THE

PRESIDENT SAID HE IS FOR

BOLD DISCLOSURE.

President Trump:

100%.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

SAY THE ME MEMO REVEALS

ABUSES BY THE F.B.I. AND

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

CONCERNING SECRET FISA

COURT WARRANTS, AND

MONITORING THE 2016 TRUMP

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

ANY TIME F.B.I. AND

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

OFFICIALS NEED TO CONDUCT

SURVEILLANCE ON A FOREIGN

NATIONAL, THEY'RE REQUIRED

BY LAW TO GET APPROVAL, A

WARRANT FROM THE FISA

COURT, WHICH IS THE

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE

SURVEILLANCE COURT.

BUT QUESTIONABLE EVIDENCE

MAY HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO THE

FISA COURT FOR EVIDENCE TO

GET A WARRANT, INVOLVING

SURVEILLANCE OF THE TRUMP

TEAM.

IT WAS A DOSSIER FROM

FUSION G.P.S., AND FORMER

BRITISH INTELLIGENT AGENT

CHRISTOPHER STEELE ON

TRUMP AND CAMPAIGN

COALITION.

DESPITE COMEY'S STATEMENT,

SOME TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIALS AND REPUBLICANS

ON CAPITOL HILL BELIEVE

THE DOSSIER MAY HAVE BEEN

PRESENTED TO THE FISA

COURT TO PROVIDE THE BASIS

FOR THE GOVERNMENT

INVESTIGATION OF THE TRUMP

CAMPAIGN AND SURVEILLANCE

OF TRUMP CAMPAIGN MEETINGS

AT THE TRUMP TOWER.

SOME CONGRESSIONAL

REPUBLICANS WROTE THE MEMO

AS A SUMMARY OF

INTELLIGENCE INFORMATION

ABOUT THE DOSSIER.

HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN

FAVORS THE MEMO'S REPLACE.

THERE MAY HAVE BEEN

MALFEASANCE BY PEOPLE AT

THE F.B.I.

IT IS OUR JOB TO GET TO

THE BOTTOM OF THAT.

Reporter: REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMAN JIM JORDAN

CALLED THE MEMO ALARMING,

AND MARK MEADOWS SAID IT

IS TROUBLING.

HE DIDN'T EXPECT SUCH

ABUSES OF GOVERNMENT

SURVEILLANCE POWER TO

OCCUR IN THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA.

SOME CRITICS HAVE LIKENED

THE SURVEILLANCE TO K.G.B.

TACTICS.

AND IN RESPONSE TO THE

F.B.I.'S OBJECTIONS THAT

IT HAS GRAVE CONCERNS

ABOUT THE G.O.P. MEMO,

DEVIN NUNES SAYS THE

F.B.I. STONEWALLED

REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION

FOR NEARLY A YEAR.

AND DEMOCRATS SAY THE

REPUBLICAN MEMO ISN'T

ACCURATE.

AND DESPITE ALL THESE

CONCERNS, EVEN FROM

MEMBERS OF THE PRESIDENT'S

OWN ADMINISTRATION, THE

MEMO COULD BE RELEASED

SOME TIME TODAY.

PRESIDENT TRUMP BELIEVES

IT WILL BE MORE EVIDENCE

PROVING THAT HIS CAMPAIGN

WAS SUBJECTED TO ILLEGAL

WIRETAPS, THAT PEOPLE AT

THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF

GOVERNMENT WORKED TO

SABOTAGE HIS CAMPAIGN AND

PRESIDENCY.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, GARY.

> YOU KNOW, I AM A FAN

OF THE F.B.I.

I THINK YEARS HAVE GONE

BY, AND I HAD A PRAYER

MEETING WITH THE F.B.I.

THEY GAVE ME A PLAQUE.

I APPRECIATED THE IT VERY

MUCH.

BUT, I'LL TELL YOU, THIS

IS SUPPOSED TO BE A BRANCH

OF GOVERNMENT THAT IS

UNDER THE PRESIDENT AND,

IN TURN, THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

THE F.B.I. IS NOT AN

INDEPENDENT AGENCY THAT

REPORTS TO NOBODY.

BUT THEY'RE ACTING LIKE

THEY HAVE NO OVERSIGHT BY

ANYBODY.

AND CONGRESS HAS AN

ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY TO

INVESTIGATE THEM.

BUT IF THEY HAVE GOT PHONY

INFORMATION, AND THE

FUSION GOSPEL

ORGANIZATION, THAT WAS

PAID FOR BY THE

DEMOCRATS -- IF THAT THING

IS WHAT WAS THE BASIS OF A

FISA COURT WARRANT TO

WIRETAP AND TO INVESTIGATE

THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, IT IS

AN OUTRAGE.

AND THEY HAVE AN ABSOLUTE

RIGHT -- AT LEAST THE

TRUMP PEOPLE DO -- TO

DETERMINE WHAT THE F.B.I.

SAID AND WHAT EVIDENCE

THEY HAD TO PRESENT TO A

COURT.

NOW, THIS IS -- IT'S

PRETTY BASIC TO OUR

DEMOCRACY.

THAT THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

BE UNDER THE PEOPLE THAT

WE ELECTED, AND THE PEOPLE

WE ELECTED WAS PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

HE IS OUR PRESIDENT.

AND HE, IN TURN, CAN PUT

PEOPLE IN CHARGE.

I THINK WHAT WE'RE HAVING

IS THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL IS

IN CHARGE OF THE F.B.I.

AND HE HAS, QUOTE,

"RECUSED" HIMSELF, BUT HE

RECUSAL SHOULD NOT APPLY

TO THIS FISA WARRANT.

THIS WHOLE MATTER IS UNDER

THE F.B.I., AND HE, IN

TURN -- IT'S UNDER HIS

JURISDICTION.

AND I THINK THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL HAS

ILL-SERVED THE PRESIDENT.

AND I THINK MANY, MANY

PEOPLE ON THE CONSERVATIVE

SIDE OF THE AISLE HAVE

WONDERED AT WHY JEFF

SESSIONS HAS THE NOT

GOTTEN INTO THIS FRAY AND

STOOD UP FOR HIS

PRESIDENT.

AND HE HASN'T DONE IT, AND

HE SHOULD DO IT.

AND IT IS TIME HE TELL THE

F.B.I., YOU BEHAVE.

THE OTHER THING I WOULD

LIKE TO SEE -- I BELIEVE

ROROD ROSENSTEIN SHOULD BE

FIRED.

IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE A

LONG TIME AGO.

IMAGINE, YOU'RE RUNNING A

BUSINESS, A CORPORATION,

AND YOU'RE THE C.E.O. OF

THE CORPORATION.

AND YOU HAVE A VICE

PRESIDENT WHO, WITHOUT

TELLING YOU ABOUT IT,

DECIDES HE IS GOING TO

HIRE ONE OF YOUR ENEMIES

AND GIVE HIM A POSITION

THAT HE CAN'T BE FIRED

FROM.

NOW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN

A CASE LIKE THAT?

YOU WOULD FIRE THAT GUY IN

LITERALLY A NEW YORK

SECOND.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED.

ROSROSENSTEIN SET UP THAT

INDEPENDENT PROSECUTOR

WITHOUT CONSULTING THE

PRESIDENT.

AND HE SPRINGS IT ON HIM,

LIKE, OH, BY THE WAY, I

JUST HIRED YOUR ENEMY AND

YOU CAN'T FIRE HIM.

IT IS OUTRAGEOUS.

HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE A

LONG TIME AGO.

TRUMP OUGHT TO FIRE HIM.

HE DOESN'T HAVE TO ASK

PERMISSION.

HE OUGHT TO DO IT.

I THINK THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL, JEFF

SESSIONS, HAS GOT TO MAN

UP, AS THEY SAY, AND STOP

THIS BUSINESS ABOUT I'M

RECUSED.

NO, YOU HAVEN'T.

YOU'RE RECUSAL APPLIES TO

SOMETHING ELSE, NOT THIS.

GET WITH THE PROGRAM.

IT REALLY -- SOMEBODY HAS

GOT TO SHAKE THOSE GUYS

UP.

BUT THE F.B.I. IS NOT AN

INDEPENDENT ORGANIZATION.

IT REPORTS TO THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT, WHO IN TURN

REPORTS TO THE PRESIDENT

OF THE UNITED STATES.

THAT'S THE WAY OUR

DEMOCRACY WORKS.

> WELL, IN OTHER NEWS,

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

TRAVELLING TO WEST

VIRGINIA.

HE'LL BE GETTING TOGETHER

WITH REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS

TO TALK ABOUT THE G.O.P.

AGENDA.

BUT ON THEIR WAY TO THE

RETREAT AT THE GREENBIER

HOTEL IN WEST VIRGINIA,

THE TRAIN, AMTRAK TRAIN,

NEAR A PLACE CALLED CROWS,

VIRGINIA, HIT A TRUCK THAT

WAS ON THE TRUCK.

AND IT HAS BEEN A TRAGEDY.

CHARLENE AARON HAS MORE

DETAILS ABOUT THAT.

Charlene: THE TRAIN

CARRYING THE REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMEN COLLIDED WITH

A GARBAGE TRUCK IN

VIRGINIA.

AND MEMBERS WITH MEDICAL

TRAINING SPRUNG INTO

ACTION.

CONGRESSMAN NEIL SAID HE

AND OTHERS WHO WERE

DOCTORS AND NURSES HELPED

THE INJURED PEOPLE IN THE

TRUCK.

NO ONE ON THE TRAIN WAS

SERIOUSLY INJURED, BUT A

28-YEAR-OLD PASSENGER IN

THE TRUCK DIED.

WE DID C.P.R. FOR

SEVERAL, SEVERAL MINUTES.

DR. ROE GAVE ME A LOOK --

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU TEACH

THIS IN MEDICAL SCHOOL --

BUT THIS IS OVER, ROGER,

THERE IS NOTHING ELSE WE

CAN DO.

Charlene: HOUSE

SPEAKER PAUL RYAN SAYS THE

ACCIDENT IS A REMINDER OF

HOW FRAGILE LIFE CAN BE.

> THE FLU IS THE WORST

EVER.

MORE THAN A DOZEN CHILDREN

HAVE DIED FROM IT.

LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STAY

SAFE.

Lorie: DOCTORS ARE

NOW SEEING SIGNIFICANTLY

MORE FLU PATIENTS THAN IN

YEARS PAST, AND THE FLU

SEASON IS FAR FROM OVER.

THE C.D.C. REPORTS 12,000

HOSPITALIZATIONS AND

WIDESPREAD OUTBREAKS IN

EVERY STATE EXCEPT HAWAII.

RIGHT NOW INFLUENZA IS

EVERYWHERE.

Lorie: THESE ARE SOME

OF THE CHILDREN WHO'S

LIVES WERE CUT SHORT BY

THE FLU.

6-YEAR-OLD EMILY MUSK OF

TERRY, NORTH CAROLINA,

DIED JUST FOUR DAYS AFTER

GETTING SICK.

ALL OF A SUDDEN SHE

RAISED UP AND WENT BACK

DOWN, AND I NOTICED THAT

EMILY -- I NOTICED SHE

WASN'T BREATHING.

Lorie: THE FLU CAN

KURTURN INTO DEADLY SEPSIS

AND HEART PROBLEMS.

ADULTS ARE SIX TIME MORE

LIKELY TO HAVE A HEART

ATTACK AFTER GETTING THE

FLU.

THIS SEASON'S DOMINANT

STRAIN IS ESPECIALLY

VIRULENT.

THE TYPES OF SYMPTOMS

WE'RE SEEING FROM THE FLU

IS A DRY COUGH, MUSCLE

ACHES, FEVERS, CHILLS,

SOMETIMES A HEADACHE, SORE

THROAT.

Lorie: ANTIVIRAL

DRUGS CAN HELP IF THEY'RE

TAKEN WITHIN TWO DAYS OF

GETTING SICK.

THIS SEASON'S FLU SHOT IS

ONLY 30% AFFECTIVE, AT

BEST, BUT DOCTORS SAY IT

IS STILL THE BEST WAY TO

AVOID THE FLU.

AND IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO

GET ONE.

EVEN IF YOU GET THE FLU

AFTER GETTING THE VACCINE,

WHICH CAN HAPPEN, CHANCES

ARE THE ILLNESS WILL BE

SHORTER AND LESS SEVERE.

Lorie: DOCTORS

RECOMMEND AVOIDING PEOPLE

WITH THE FLU BECAUSE THEY

CAN BREATHE THE VIRUS OUT

IN PARTICLES THAT HOVER IN

THE AIR.

AND FREQUENT HANDWASHING,

SINCE FLU VIRUSES CAN LIVE

UP ON HARD SURFACES FOR UP

TO A DAY.

AND STRENGTH THIN STRENGTHENING YOUR

IMMUNE SYSTEM WITH

PROBIOTICS.

THE SPANISH FLU WAS BEFORE

VACCINES AND ANTI-VIRALS,

BUT EXPERTS SAY A FLU

PANDEMIC SIMILAR TO 1918

COULD HAPPEN AGAIN.

SCIENTISTS ARE NOW WORKING

ON A UNIVERSAL FLU VACCINE

WHICH WILL PROTECT AGAINST

ALL STRAINS OF THE VIRUS

AND BE GIVEN EVER SEVERAL

YEARS, OR, IDEALLY, ONCE

IN A LIFETIME.

EXPERTS SAY IT WILL BE

AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC

WIN YEARS, NOT DECADES.

BUT FOR NOW, DOCTORS

REMAIN BUSY FIGHTING ONE

OF THE WORST FLU OUTBREAKS

IN A LONG TIME.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Charlene: RATINGS

WERE DOWN AGAIN FOR THE

NFL THIS SEASON FOR THE

SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR.

BUT AS PAT MENTIONED AT

THE TOP OF THE SHOW,

COMECIALTCOMMERCIALS FOR THIS

YEAR'S SUPER BOWL WILL

STILL BE PLENTY EXPENSIVE.

THE ADS WILL COST

$5 MILLION FOR 30 SECONDS

OF AIR TIME.

SPENDING ON SUPER BOWL ADS

HAS SURGED 35% IN THE LAST

DECADE.

DESPITE THE RATINGS

DECLINE FOR THE NFL, THE

SUPER BOWL IS STILL EASILY

THE MOST-WATCHED EVENT ON

TELEVISION WITH AN

AUDIENCE OF MORE THAN ONE

MILLION.

PAT?

Pat: ARE YOU PULLING

FOR THE EAGLES OR THE

PATRIOTS?

Terry: IN THE END --

I'M KIND OF PULLING FOR

THE UNDERDOG.

I THINK IT WOULD BE REALLY

WONDERFUL.

NEW ENGLAND HAS WON SO

MANY TIMES -- TO SEE

ANOTHER TEAM COME IN.

Pat: TOM BRADY HAS

BEEN AN UNBELIEVABLE

ATHLETE.

BUT I'M WITH YOU, I THINK

IT IS TIME FOR SOMEBODY TO

COME UP -- I WAS AT A

LUNCHEON SOME YEARS AGO

OVER IN ENGLAND, I

BELIEVE, AND ROBERT KRAFT

AND HIS WIFE WERE THERE.

AND HE SAID, I'VE GOT THIS

TEAM, AND HERE IS THE

SCHEDULE.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO TO

ONE OF THE GAMES?

I SAID, THE NEW ENGLAND

PATRIOTS, WHO NEEDS IT?

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: YOU THOUGHT

THAT?

Pat: IT'S NOT THE

COWBOYS OR THE REDSKINS.

WHOEVER HEARD OF THESE

PATRIOTS?

THEY WERE KIND OF LIKE A

NEW FRANCHISE.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: AND THEY HAVE

DOMINATED FOOTBALL YEAR

AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR.

AND THE COACH IS KIND OF

AN UNUSUAL-LOOKING GUY WHO

WAS, I THINK, AN ACCOLADE

OR A DISCIPLE OF BILL

PARSEL.

I WOULD LIKE TO CHEER THIS

TIME FOR THE EAGLES

BECAUSE THEY'RE THE

UNDERDOG.

I'M SORRY I TURNED

MR. KRAFT DOWN IN THOSE

EARLY DAYS.

Terry: MAYBE HE'LL

GIVE YOU ANOTHER

INVITATION.

Pat: HIS WIFE IS A

LOVELY LADY, WHO IS VERY

STRONG FOR ISRAEL.

AND SHE WANTED TO TELL ME

ABOUT A MAN WHO ACTUALLY

FOLLOWED THE STEPS OF

MOSES.

IT WAS REMARKABLE.

SHE HAD A BOOK ABOUT HIM,

AND SHE GAVE ME A BOOK.

BUT SHE WAS LOVED BY THE

PATRIOTS, AND SHE PASSED

AWAY -- UNFORTUNATELY SHE

HAD SOME DISEASE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS.

BUT SHE'LL BE MISSED.

SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL LADY.

BUT BOB KRAFT IS A VERY

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN,

AND THE PATRIOTS HAVE BEEN

EXTRAORDINARILY

SUCCESSFUL.

Terry: THERE YOU GO,

BOB, IF YOU'VE GOT A

COUPLE OF TICKETS.

Pat: TOO LATE NOW.

THEY'RE WORTH THOUSANDS OF

DOLLARS.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE, OKAY,

YOU HAD A CHANCE TO BUY

THEM IN THE EARLY DAYS,

AND YOU TURNED IT DOWN.

IT'S YOUR OWN FAULT.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: ANYHOW --

Pat: ANYHOW...

Terry: OUR SPORTS

REPORTER SEA SEAN BROWN HEADS

TO THE LOCKER ROOM FOR

SOME INTERVIEWS WITH THE

PLAYERS OF SUPER BOWL 52.

> FIRST, IT IS A PLACE

WITH SNOW CONES AND

TRAMPOLINES, BUT IT IS

NOOT A CARNIVAL.

IT IS A SAVE HAVEN FOR THE

VICTIMS OF THE SYRIAN WAR.

IT IS AMAZING TO WATCH

THE TRANSFORMATION OF

THESE PEOPLE WHEN THEY'RE

NOT UNDER THE OPPRESSION

OF WAR.

Terry: SEE HOW A

UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP IS

HELPING TO REBUILD THE

LIVES OF THE WAR'S

YOUNGEST VICTIMS.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

AS WE GET READY FOR SUPER

BOWL 52 -- IT'S AN LX X --

OR LII -- A 52.

THAT SUPER BOWL IS

AMAZING.

ONE OF THE HUNT BOYS --

YOU KNOW, LAMAR HUNT --

HAD THE KANSAS CITY

CHIEFS, AND HE SAID, WHY

DON'T WE HAVE ONE LEAGUE

PLAY AGAINST THE OTHER

LEAGUE.

AND HE SET UP THIS GAME.

AND THEY CALLED IT THE

SUPER BOWL.

AND OUT OF THAT CAME THIS

ENORMOUS THING, AND IT'S

THE BIGGEST SPORTS EVENT

IN OUR NATION EACH YEAR.

IT WAS LAMAR HUNT AND THE

CHIEFS FROM KANSAS CITY.

Terry: WELL, I WAS AT

THE ICE BOWL, AND THAT WAS

RIGHT BEFORE.

Pat: WERE THEY

PLAYING --

Terry: THERE WASN'T A

SUPER BOWL THEN.

Pat: THAT WAS

HORRIBLE.

HOW COULD YOU STAND IT?

THAT WAS COLD.

Terry: WELL, YOU GROW

UP THERE, BUT IT WAS VERY

COLD.

YOU HAD TO DRESS

INCREDIBLY COLD.

Pat: A LOT OF PEOPLE

WOULDN'T GO TO CHURCH

BECAUSE IT WAS SO COLD --

Terry: BUT THEY'LL BE

THERE.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: HE WAS LOSING

LIKE A MILLION DOLLARS A

YEAR, AND SOMEBODY SAID,

MR. HUNT, HOW LONG CAN

THEY GO ON?

AND HE FIGURED MAYBE 200

YEARS.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: THEY'RE NOT

LOSING IT NOW.

THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES,

IT HAS BEEN AMAZING HOW

FAR THEY'VE COME.

IF THEY HAD A CONTEST TO

PICK THE WINNER AND THE

SCORE FOR THE SUPER BOWL,

AND YOURS TRULY WON THAT

CONTEST.

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: I FIGURED WHO

WAS GOING TO WIN AND WHO

WAS GOING TO LOSE AND QA WHAT

THE SCORE WAS GOING TO BE.

Terry: CARE TO

SPECULATE?

Pat: NOT THIS TIME,

CERTAINLY NOT ON

TELEVISION.

> WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF

YOUR ENEMY NEEDED FOOD,

CLOTHING AND MEDICAL

ASSISTANCE?

WOULD YOU HELP HIM?

THAT'S WHAT ISRAEL DECIDED

TO DO.

THEY PARTNERED WITH A

CHRISTIAN MINISTRY, AND

TOGETHER THEY'RE HELPING

SYRIANS CAUGHT IN THE

RAVAGES OF CIVIL WAR.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THIS.

Chris: IT'S CALLED

"CAMP ESHY," OPERATING

INSIDE THE ISRAELI BORDER

UNDER THE PROTECTION OF

THE I.D.F.

IT PROVIDES URGENT MEDICAL

CARE TO SYRIANS CAUGHT IN

THE MIDDLE OF A SIX-YEAR

CIVIL WAR.

THERE ARE ABOUT 80,000

SYRIANS WHO LIVE IN THE

AREA OF THE CAMP WHO NEED

MEDICAL ATTENTION.

THEY ARRIVE BY TRUCK AT

THE BORDER, THEY CHECKED

BY SECURITY, AND THEN

ENTER INTO THE CAMP WHERE

THEY RECEIVE MEDICAL

ATTENTION AND LOVE.

FROM THE TIME THEY COME

THROUGH THE GATE, THEY

BECOME THE MOST IMPORTANT

PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.

AND WE DON'T SPEAK THE

LANGUAGE, SO WE HAVE TO

SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF

LOVE.

Chris: DON AND SANDRA

STARTED "FRIENDSHIPS,"

WORKING WITH ISRAEL'S GOOD

NEIGHBOR PROJECT TO HELP

THE SYRIANS.

IT IS AMAZING TO WATCH

THE TRANSFORMATION IN

THESE PEOPLE WHEN THEY'RE

NOT UNDER THE OPPRESSION

OF WAR.

Chris: IN THEIR FIRST

TWO MONTHS, THEY TREATED

SOME 2,000 PEOPLE.

WE'RE PUTTING IN WI-FI

AND TELEMEDICINE, AND WHEN

THAT COMES IN, WE'LL BE

ABLE TO TREAT THREE TIMES

AS PATROLME MANY BECAUSE IT WILL

SPEED UP THE PROCESS.

Chris: THIS IS WHERE

PATIENTS GET CHECKED.

USUALLY IT IS THINGS

LIKE INFECTIONS.

AND WE HAD SOMEBODY WITH

HEPATITIS TODAY.

THERE IS RASHES.

SO WE DO A LOT OF THINGS

THAT IF THEY'RE NOT

TREATED, THEY'LL BECOME

SERIOUS.

THERE ARE ALSO WAR

INJURIES AND THINGS THAT

PEOPLE COME IN WITH, AND

WE CAN TREAT THEIR

INFECTIONS AND THINGS.

AND WE DIAGNOSE PEOPLE

WE'RE NOT ABLE TO TREAT

AND WE REFER THEM TO

VARIOUS OUTLETS FOR

FURTHER POCKETS.

Chris: WHILE

INCUBATORS, BIRTHING BEDS

AND X-RAY MACHINES ARE NOT IN

NEED, IT'S NOT THEIR

BIGGEST NEED.

MAINLY WE NEED PEOPLE

TO COME AND HOPE, AND

DOCTORS AND NURSES.

THIS IS WHAT CALL OUR

STATION.

THEY GET A BAG WITH FOODS

AND CLOTHES WHEN THEY

LEAVE.

THIS IS THE CHILDREN'S

ROOM.

THESE KIDS HAVE BEEN IN A

WAR SINCE THEY WERE BORN.

THIS IS O OUR TRAMPOLINE,

AND THE CHILDREN LOVE IT

AND THE ADULTS JUST GO

NUTS.

WE HAVE SNOWCONES AND WE

HAVE AN ICE CREAM MACHINE

COMING ON WEDNESDAY.

Chris: THEY FOUND A

GREAT WILLINGNESS IN

ISRAEL TO HELP THE

SYRIANS.

WE WERE TRYING TO FIND

A WAY THROUGH LEBANON OR

JORDAN TO GET GOODS TO

THEM, AND IT WAS A DEAD

END.

SO WE STARTED WORKING WITH

OUR FRIENDS HERE IN

ISRAEL.

WE HAD NO IDEA THAT WE

WOULD RUN INTO SUCH A

LOVING FRIEND IN ISRAEL,

THAT THEY WOULD HAVE THE

SAME VISION FOR HELPING

THESE PEOPLE AS WE DID AS

CHRISTIANS.

SO WE HAVE JEWS HELPING

CHRISTIANS TO HELP THE

MUSLIMS.

Chris: AFTER

NIGHTFALL, CBN NEWS

ACCOMPANIED THE I.D.F. ON

A MISSION ALONG THE SEREN

BORDER.

WE SUITED UP IN BODY ARMOR

AND HELMET AND DROVE TO AN

UNSPECIFIED LOCATION.

IT IS HERE AT THE BORDER,

WHERE THEY DELIVER

HUMANITARIAN NEEDS NEARLY

EVERY NIGHT.

YOU CAN SEE THE TRACTOR

TAKING ALL OF THE FLOUR

FROM THE BIG TRUCK.

WE'RE DOING IT SEVEN DAYS

A WEEK.

Chris: MAJOR "A"

OVERSEES THE PROJECT HERE

AT THE BORDER.

WE'VE HIDDEN HIS IDENTITY

FOR HIS PROTECTION.

WE DELIVER A LOT OF

FOOD.

LOTS OF THINGS FOR

CHILDREN, TOYS, MANY

THINGS.

AND ALL OF THE BASIC FOOD

THINGS.

WE DELIVER THEM HERE, AND

THEY'RE COMING AND TAKING

THEM.

Chris: FIGHTING HAS

KILLED ALMOST HALF A

MILLION PEOPLE AND LEFT

COUNTLESS OTHER OTHERS WOUNDED

AND HOMELESS.

YET SYRIA MAINTAINS ITS

STANCE AGAINST ISRAEL, SO

WHY HELP?

THIS IS THE RIGHT THING

TO DO.

THIS IS WHAT ISRAEL DOES.

I LOVE TO DO IT.

THIS IS THE BEST THING

THAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME.

Chris: MAJOR "A" SAYS

ABOUT 250,000 SYRIANS LIVE

IN THE AREA THAT BENEFITS

FROM THESE DELIVERIES.

DOES HE THINK THEY'LL

REMEMBER THEIR KINDNESS

WHEN THE WAR IS OVER?

I REALLY DON'T KNOW,

BUT I CAN HOPE THAT THEY

REMEMBER.

Chris: MAJOR "A" HAS

BEEN SURPRISED BY THE

CHRISTIAN HELP.

THEY'RE LOVELY PEOPLE.

IT IS THE FIRST TIME I

HAVE SEEN THAT A HUMAN

BEING CAN BE SO GENEROUS

AND SO BRAVE AND SO WARM,

AND CAN GIVE A LOT OF

LOVE.

TODAY IN THE CLINIC, THERE

ARE CHRISTIANS THAT MAKE

THINGS HAPPEN, WITH THE

ISRAELIS, WITH THE JEWS,

FOR THE MUSLIMS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ALONG

THE ISRAELI-SYRIAN BORDER.

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS,

IF YOU READ ISAIAH, THE

19th CHAPTER -- IT TALKS

ABOUT THE HIGHWAY THAT IS

GOING TO BE ONE DAY

BETWEEN ASSYRIA AND EGYPT,

AND IT WILL FLOW THROUGH

ISRAEL.

AND THEY'LL BE THE THIRD

IN THE LAND, AND THAT THEY

WILL BE BROTHERS AND THEY

WILL BELONG TO THE LORD.

AND I THINK THAT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

THE BIBLE HAS TO BE

FULFILLED.

WHAT IS IN THE WORD OF GOD

IS GOING TO BE FULFILLED.

AND EGYPT AND SYRIA WILL

COME, WHAT IS ASSYRIA,

WHICH WOULD PROBABLY

INCORPORATE IRAQ AND THAT

WHOLE AREA -- WHEN THAT

COMES TOGETHER, THERE WILL

BE WONDERFUL PEACE.

AND IT WILL BE THERE.

BUT THIS OPERATION THAT

THE ISRAELIS ARE DOING IS

SO BEAUTIFUL.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE CURSES

AND THE FIGHTING THAT GO

ON, AND YET IN THE HEARTS

OF THESE PEOPLE THERE IS

LOVE AND THE DESIRE TO

HELP THEIR FELLOW MAN.

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING.

Terry: YEAH.

WELL, MAYBE THIS IS THE

BEGINNING OF THE PROPHECY

COMING --

Pat: IT WILL HAPPEN.

THE BIBLE IS ALWAYS GOING

TO BE FULFILLED.

Terry: AMEN.

> WELL, COMING UP, THE

EAGLES ARE HOPING FOR

THEIR FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP,

WHILE THE PATRIOTS ARE

GUNNING FOR TITLE NUMBER

SIX.

BUT ASK SOME OF THOSE ON

THE FIELD, AND YOU'LL SEE

THEY'RE PLAYING FOR

SOMETHING MORE.

I FEEL LIKE MY PURPOSE

HERE IN THE NATIONAL

FOOTBALL LEAGUE AND HERE

ON EARTH IS BIGGER THAN

THE GAME OF FOOTBALL.

I'M A BELIEVER IN JESUS

CHRIST.

THAT IS FIRST AND

FOREMOST.

I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO

THIS GAME WITHOUT HIM.

Terry: STAY TUNED FOR

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME COVERAGE

YOU WON'T SEE ANYWHERE

ELSE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, WE'RE JUST

THREE DAYS AWAY FROM THE

BIGGEST SPORTING EVENT OF

THE YEAR, SUPER BOWL 52.

IN BETWEEN THE

COMMERCIALS, TWO TEAMS

WILL BATTLE IT OUT FOR THE

RIGHT TO HOLD THE LOMBARDI

TROPHY.

ANYWAY, SEAN BROWN HAS

BEEN ON THE GROUND TO SEE

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE

MINDS OF THE PLAYERS AND

COACHES.

Reporter: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO THE STADIUM

HERE IN MINNEAPOLIS, FOR

CBN'S COVERAGE OF SUPER

BOWL 52, IT IS THE

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES VERSUS

TOM BRADY AND THE

PATRIOTS.

THE EAGLES ARE HOPING TO

CAPTURE THEIR FIRST SUPER

BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP IN

HISTORY.

YOU CAN IMAGINE, THERE IS

A WHOLE LOT OF PRESSURE ON

PLAYERS TO WIN.

WHILE THAT IS IMPORTANT,

SOME OF THEM SAY THEY'RE

PLAYING FOR A WHOLE LOT

MORE THAN A SUPER BOWL

CHAMPIONSHIP.

THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

HAVE BEEN THE BEST TEAM IN

THE NFL ALL SEASON.

MALCOLM SAYS IT HAS A LOT

TO DO WITH THE BROTHERHOOD

OF FAITH THAT HE AND A LOT

OF HIS TEAMMATES FORMED IN

THE OFF-SEASON, THROUGH

BIBLE STUDIES, PRAYING

TOGETHER, AND EVEN

BAPTISM.

I'VE SEEN AT LEAST

THREE GUYS GET BAPTIZED AT

THE TEAM FACILITY.

I DON'T THINK THAT IS

HAPPENING ANYWHERE.

AND IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE

THINGS THAT -- FAITH IS

IMPORTANT TO A LOT OF GUYS

ON THIS TEAM.

WE COMMUNE WITH EACH OTHER

OFTENTIMES.

WE TALK ABOUT IT, WE PRAY

TOGETHER, AND IT'S BEEN

UNIQUE AND SPECIAL TO

WATCH THAT UNFOLD.

Reporter: TIGHT END

HURTZ AGREES WITH MALCOLM.

I DEDICATED MY LIFE TO

CHRIST BACK IN MARCH.

I WAS BAPTIZED IN MARCH

AND I GOT MARRIED THE NEXT

DAY.

OUR MARRIAGE HAS BEEN

BUILT ON THAT FOUNDATION

OF THE WORD AND JESUS, AND

IT HAS CHANGED MY LIVES.

TO HAVE THESE GUYS HOLD ME

ACCOUNTABLE ON A DAILY

BASIS IS PHENOMENAL FOR

ME.

I HOPE I DO THE SAME FOR

THEM.

AS A TEAM, WE ARE

STRONG IN OUR FAITH.

PEOPLE SAY UNDERDOGS, AND

WE'RE, LIKE -- WE CONSIDER

OURSELVES BLESSED.

Reporter: CARSON TORE

A.C.L., AND MANY

QUESTIONED IF NICK HAD THE

GOODS TO LEAD THE TEAM ALL

THE WAY TO THE

CHAMPIONSHIP.

AND NOW THEY ARE PLAYING

IN THEIR FIRST SUPER BOWL

IN 13 YEARS, AND HE SAID

IT IS ALL BO BECAUSE OF GOD'S

FAITHFULNESS.

I'M A BELIEVER IN JESUS

CHRIST.

THAT IS FIRST AND

FOREMOST.

I WOANLTS B WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO

THIS GAME WITHOUT HIM.

THIS IS ALSO AN

OPPORTUNITY TO GO OUT

THERE AND SHARE WHAT HE

HAS DONE IN MY LIFE.

IT IS HOW HE HAS HUMBLED

ME.

IN MY WEAKNESS, HE MADE ME

STRONG.

WHENEVER I WAS AT MY

LOWEST, THAT'S WHEN MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST

GREW.

Reporter: THE NEW

ENGLAND PATRIOTS HAS WON

TWO CHAMPIONSHIPS IN THE

LAST FIVE SEASONS, AND NOW

THEY'RE BACK TO TRY FOR

ANOTHER.

FOR SOME OF THEM, IT IS

ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO

GLORIFY THE LORD.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE I'VE

BEEN GIVEN THIS PLATFORM

OF FOOTBALL TO BUILD

RELATIONSHIPS, TO BUILD

BRIDGES, AND TO CONNECT

WITH PEOPLE AND SHOW THEM

THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

THAT IS SOMETHING I'VE

ENJOYED DOING SINCE MY

VERY FIRST DAY WITH NEW

ENGLAND.

I GO THROUGH MY UPS AND

DOWNS.

I'M A BROKEN HUMAN BEING,

AND I HAVE MY FLAWS AND MY

STRUGGLES, AND GOD IS THE

ONE THAT IS CONSISTENT.

GOD IS THE ONE THAT

CARRIES ME THROUGH.

I'M SO THANKFUL FOR JESUS

CHRIST AND THE THINGS HE

HAS DONE IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: THE

PATRIOTS' DEFENSE HAS HAD

TO WORK HARD.

RON AND DEVIN SAY IT IS

WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH THAT

THEY LEAN ON THEIR FAITH

THE MOST TO HELP THEM STAY

FOCUSED AND POISED.

THIS WHOLE JOURNEY IS

UP AND DOWN, BUT THE ONE

THING THAT HAS STAYED

CONSISTENT IS GOD, HIS

LOVE FOR ME AND HIS

GRACIOUS MERCY.

HE CONTINUALLY SHOWS HIS

FAVOR.

I KNOW THAT HE HAS

SOMETHING BIGGER IN STORE

FOR ME THAN FOOTBALL, BUT

I HAVE TO STAY THE COURSE

AND CONTINUE TO KEEP

SERVING HIM, AND

EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FALL

IN PLACE.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE

TALKED ABOUT A LOT THIS

YEAR IS JUST JOY.

FOOTBALL BRINGS A LOT OF

UPS AND DOWNS, AND YOU CAN

RIDE THAT ROLLER COASTER.

EVEN IN OUR CHAPEL TODAY,

WE TALKED ABOUT ENJOYING

THE PROCESS AND BEING

AUTHENTIC, BEING

OURSELVES, AND NOT BEING

SCARED TO BE DIFFERENT,

AND TO TALK ABOUT BEING

BLESSED AND THE

OPPORTUNITY TO BE HERE.

Reporter: TIGHT END

DWAYNE ALLEN KNOWS HE

WOULDN'T BE HERE WITHOUT

HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH

JESUS CHRIST.

I GO BACK TO JUNE WHERE

I HAD A MOMENT IN MY

BEDROOM WHERE I SUBMITTED

CHRIST.

I TRIED IT OVER THE LAST

23 YEARS, AND IT'S JUST

NOT WORKING.

I NEED YOU.

> SUBMITTING MY LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST IS NOT EASY,

BUT I LIFE IS NOT MEANT TO

BE EASY.

BUT TAKE HEART, JESUS

CHRIST HAS OVERCOME ALL.

Pat: THOSE GUYS ARE

BIG FELLOWS.

YOU SEE THEM IN PERSON,

AND THEY HAVE ENORMOUS

MUSCLES, POWERFUL, AND YET

THEY SAY THAT JESUS CHRIST

IS IT.

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

THINK THAT RELIGION IS FOR

LITTLE OLD LADIES AND

LITTLE CHILDREN, AND NOT

FOR BIG, POWERFUL MEN.

DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT.

THE LORD IS THE MOST

POWERFUL OF ALL.

AND HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY.

AND THESE PEOPLE SUBMIT TO

THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE

SMART.

AND THAT'S BEAUTIFUL TO

SEE.

Terry: IT REALLY IS.

IT IS WONDERFUL TO HEAR

THAT KIND OF TESTIMONY ON

BOTH SIDES.

Pat: AMEN.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, THE GERMAN

EVANGELIST WHO BROUGHT THE

GOSPEL TO THE AFRICAN

CONTINENT AND HAS SEEN

75 MILLION RECORDED

CONVERSIONS TO CHRIST.

REINHARD BONNKE JOINS US

LIVE.

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

CHAIRMAN TREY GOUDY WON'T

BE RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION

HERE.

HE HEADED UP THE BENGHAZI

INVESTIGATION.

HE IS THE LATEST

REPUBLICAN TO SAY HE WON'T

BE COMING BACK.

MORE THAN THREE DOZEN

REPUBLICANS ARE LEAVING

THE HOUSE, BUT MANY ARE

FROM SAFE G.O.P.

DISTRICTS.

> THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WILL ALLOW

THOUSANDS OF SYRIANS TO

STAY IN THE U.S. FOR THE

NEXT YEAR AND A HALF.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS

EXTENDED THE TEMPORARY

PROTECTION STATUS OF

NEARLY 7,000 SYRIANS.

THIS PROTECTION IS ONLY

FOR SYRIANS WHO WERE IN

THE U.S. AS OF

AUGUST 2016.

CRITICS ARGUE THE

ADMINISTRATION SHOULD BE

MORE GENEROUS AND GRANT AN

EXTENSION TO SYRIANS WHO

ARRIVED AFTER 2016, BUT

THE HOMELAND SECURITY

SECRETARY SAYS NO.

> YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF TODAY'S "700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

WE'VE GOT A FASCINATING

GUEST FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

SHORTLY AFTER REINHARD

BONNKE STARTED HIS

MINISTRY, HE HAD A

RECURRING DREAM.

IN THAT DREAM, THE VOICE

OF GOD CRIED, QUOTE,

"AFRICA SHALL BE SAVED."

WELL SOON AFTER, REINHARD

RENTED A STADIUM AND

PREACHED TO 100 PEOPLE.

BEFORE LONG, HE WAS

SPEAKING IN FRONT OF

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

AND HE SAW FIRSTHAND THE

DREAM THAT GOD HAD PUT IN

HIS HEART FULFILLED.

PRAISE GOD.

Reporter: IN

OCTOBER 2017, REINHARD

BONNKE SHARED HIS FAREWELL

MESSAGE TO 1.7 MILLION

PEOPLE OVER FIVE DAYS IN

NIGERIA.

AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY

THAT WE HAVE SEEN THE

GLORY OF GOD AND THE POWER

OF GOD.

Reporter: KNOWN FOR

HIS MASSIVE CRUSADES IN

AFRICA, REINHARD HAS

INSPIRED 77 MILLION PEOPLE

TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR

CHRIST IN THE LAST 35

YEARS.

IN HIS BOOK, "ARE WE

FLAMMABLE OR FIREPROOF,"

REINHARD REFLECTS ON THE

HOLY SPIRIT, AND SHARES

ABOUT JESUS MOVING IN

SUPER NATURAL POWERS AND

GIFTS.

Pat: THERE IS NOBODY

IN THE WORLD WHO HAS WON

AS MANY TO THE LORD AS OUR

DEAR REINHARD BONNKE.

HE HAS SPOKEN FACE TO FACE

WITH MILLIONS.

REINHARD, I UNDERSTAND IT

IS ABOUT 77 MILLION -- YOU

HAVE RECORDED SALVATION

FOR THAT MANY.

IS IT MORE THAN THAT?

77 MILLION.

Pat: 77 MILLION?

YES.

MY SUCCESSOR IS DON

CALINDA, AND HE HAS BEEN

BUSY ALREADY.

IN THE LAST NINE YEARS,

MIRACLEMORE OR LESS ON HIS OWN,

AND HE HAS BROUGHT

20 MILLION TO THE LORD IN

THIS PERIOD.

Pat: YOU ACTUALLY

HAVE -- YOU HAVE LITTLE

RECEIPTS WITH THEIR NAMES

AND ADDRESSES ON THEM?

YES.

THESE ARE RECORDED

DECISIONS.

THIS IS PROVEN.

Pat: IN YOUR LIFE,

YOU'VE HAD -- I MEAN, IT

MUST HAVE BEEN TEARFUL FOR

YOU -- IT WAS YOUR LAST

CRUSADE IN AFRICA, AND YOU

TOLD EVERYBODY GOOD-BYE --

WHY DID YOU STOP?

WELL, I HAD A GREAT

DESIRE TO MAKE SURE THAT

WHEN I CAN NO MORE DO

THESE CRUSADES, YO -- YOU

KNOW, I'M 10 YEARS YOUNGER

THAN YOU --

Pat: YOU'RE JUST A

KID.

[LAUGHTER]

I'VE HAD SOME HEALTH

CHALLENGES IN MY LIFE OF

LATE, AND SO WHEN WE HAVE

IN ONE YEAR, AS WE HAD --

OR IN ONE WEEK, ACTUALLY,

3.4 MILLION PEOPLE RECORD

THEIR DECISION FOR JESUS,

AND I WOULD THEN HAVE TO

LEAVE IT, FOR WHATEVER

REASON, IT WOULD JUST FALL

TO ZERO.

SO I HAD ALREADY, FOR MORE

THAN 10 YEARS, THIS

DESIRE -- I DON'T WANT IT

TO FALL.

I WANT IT TO GO TO JUST

SEAMLESSLY CONTINUE AND

RISE.

Pat: AMEN.

BECAUSE THE WORLD IS SO

BIG.

AND GOD FOUND -- GAVE ME

DANIEL KOLINDA, AND I'M

VERY, VERY HAPPY.

Pat: WELL, I'M HAPPY

FOR YOU.

I KNOW WE'LL ALL MISS

THOSE WONDERFUL CRUSADES.

YOU WERE IN NIGERIA, AND

WHAT DID YOU HAVE, THREE

OR FOUR MILLION PEOPLE IN

ATTENDANCE?

3.4 MILLION PEOPLE GOT

SAVED OVER FIVE DAYS.

Pat: 3.4 MILLION

PEOPLE OVER FIVE DAYS?

OVER FIVE DAYS.

BUT THE LAST DAY, IT WAS

IN ONE SERVICE, OVER ONE

MILLION PEOPLE GOT SAVED

AND COMPLETED THEIR

DECISION CARD.

SO, YOU KNOW, THAT GAVE ME

FAITH FOR THE REST OF THE

WORLD.

Pat: SURE.

IF JESUS CAN SAVE A

MILLION IN A MEETING, IT

WILL TAKE LESS THAN ONE

YEAR TO GET AMERICA SAVED.

Pat: AMEN.

ALL RIGHT, YOU -- IT IS

JUST AMAZING, THOUGH.

WHEN THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT CAME DOWN FOR THE

FIRST TIME, HOW DID YOU

KNOW THAT ANOINTING OF THE

LORD WAS THERE?

WELL, MY FAITH WAS

TRIED, YOU KNOW.

I WAS NOT ABLE TO ASK

ANYBODY HOW DO YOU

ORGANIZE A CRUSADE?

WHAT MUST I DO?

I WENT TO ONE OF THE BIBLE

COLLEGE PRINCIPALS WHEN I

WAS THAT YOUNG, AND I

SAID, WHY ARE SO FEW

PEOPLE GETTING SAVED?

WHY?

WHY?

WHY?

AND HE SAID TO ME, WE MUST

WAIT UNTIL REVIVAL COMES.

AND I SAID, REVIVAL?

WE ARE PRAYING HUNDREDS OF

YEARS FOR REVIVAL, AND IN

THE MEANTIME MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS GET LOST.

THIS CANNOT BE RIGHT.

AND THEN I DISCOVERED NO

REVIVAL COMES IF WE DON'T

PREACH THE WORD OF GOD

UNDER THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

Pat: AND THAT'S THE

SECRET.

IT'S THE SECRET.

Pat: YOU'VE WRITTEN A

BOOK, I MIGHT ADD, AND

IT'S CALLED "ARE WE

FLAMMABLE OR FIREPROOF."

AND YOU WERE IN A MEETING,

AND A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE

WERE PRAISING GOD AND

BEING ANOINTED BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT, AND THERE WERE

FOUR OR FIVE WHO WERE

JUST, LIKE, DEAD, AND YOU

SAID THEY WERE LIKE

ASBESTOS IN THE MIDDLE OF

A FIRE.

THE LORD SPOKE TO ME.

I SAID, LORD, WHAT ARE

THESE PEOPLE?

THEY JUST LOOK, YOU KNOW?

NO FIRE AT ALL.

Pat: YEAH.

AND THE LORD SAID TO

ME, THESE ARE ASBESTOS

CHRISTIANS.

THEY ARE FIRE-PROOF.

I DON'T WANT TO BE

FIRE-PROOF.

Pat: WELL

FIRE-PROOF -- THE HOLY

SPIRIT JUST CAN'T TOUCH

THEM, IS THAT THE IDEA?

YEAH, THAT'S A PITY.

THAT'S A PITY.

YOU KNOW WHAT CAME TO ME?

Pat: WHAT'S THAT?

IF THE CHURCH IN

GENERAL REJECTS THE HOLY

SPIRIT, THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

HOMELESS.

Pat: OH, YES.

HE'S HOMELESS.

LIKE THE DOVE ON NOAH'S

ARK CANNOT FIND A PLACE TO

REST AND HAD TO RETURN.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

HOMELESS IF HE CANNOT FIND

OUR BODIES TO BE HIS

TEMPLES AND HIS

RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS ON

EARTH.

WE NEED THE GREAT

COMMISSION.

AND WE HAVE THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

IF WE HAVE ONLY THE GREAT

COMMISSION OR ARE ONLY THE

HOLY SPIRIT, WE HAVE POWER

WITHOUT PURPOSE OR PURPOSE

WITHOUT POWER.

Pat: UH-HUH.

IT IS A PACKAGE DEAL.

AND THAT IS WHAT GOD

HONORS.

Pat: WELL, HOW DOES

SOMEBODY RECEIVE THAT

POWER?

IT'S NOT JUST GOING TO

HAPPEN.

YOU'VE GOT TO ASK FOR IT,

DON'T YOU?

IT IS THE BAPTISM OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE.

THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE.

YOU CAN RECEIVE POWER.

AFTER THAT, THE HOLY

SPIRIT HAS COME UPON YOU,

AND YOU SHALL BE MY

WITNESSES.

ACTS 1: 8.

THE REST OF THE BOOK SHOWS

US WHAT HAPPENED AS A

RESULT.

AND IF WE PREACH WHAT THE

APOSTLES PREACHED, WE HAVE

THE RESULTS THE APOSTLES

HAD.

Pat: WHEN YOU WERE IN

AFRICA, THERE WERE SOME

MEETINGS -- TELLS US ABOUT

WHEN THE POWER OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT CAME ON YOU.

WHAT HAPPENED, PHYSICALLY,

TO THE PEOPLE.

IF I START AT THE

BEGINNING, I THINK THAT

WOULD BE THE RIGHT STORY

TO TELL.

IT WAS AT THE BEGINNING

WHEN I WAS NOT QUITE SURE,

SHOULD I OR SHOULD I NOT

PRAY FOR THE SICK, LIKE

OTHERS.

I EVOLVED.

I HAD TO UNLEARN WHAT I

HAD LEARNED IN GERMANY.

AND THE LORD STARTED TO

TEACH ME FRESH.

AND I WAS PREACHING WITH

AN INTERPRETER AND

SUDDENLY THE POWER OF GOD

CAME AND MY INTERPRETER

FELL DOWN AND CRIED TEARS.

AND I KNEW IT WAS THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

AND THEN SUDDENLY I HEARD

HIS VOICE SPEAKING IN MY

HEART.

HE SAID, MY WORD IN YOUR

MOUTH IS JUST AS POWERFUL

AS MY WORD IN MY MOUTH.

I SAID, WOW!

THAT'S THE WORD OF GOD

COMING THROUGH MOUTHS.

Pat: YES.

THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVES

US THAT.

AND HE RECOVERED, AND I

CONTINUED TO PREACH.

AND THEN THE HOLY SPIRIT

SPOKE TO ME AND SAID, PRAY

FOR THE TOTALLY BLIND.

AND THEN THE DEVIL CAME

WHISPERING, WHAT IF

NOTHING HAPPENS?

SEE?

Pat: RIGHT.

I SAID, DEVIL, IF

NOTHING HAPPENS, THAT IS

NOT THE POINT RIGHT NOW.

THE POINT IS THAT I OBEY

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I CONTINUED PREACHING, AND

THEN I STARTED.

I SAID, I WANT TOTALLY

BLIND PEOPLE TO GET UP.

AND THEY GOT UP.

AND I SAID, IN A MOMENT

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

REINHARD BONNKE WITH YOUR

BLIND EYES.

AND I SHOUTED IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

BLIND EYES, OPEN.

AND SUDDENLY I HEARD AN

ECHO FROM THE CROWD.

I CAN SEE.

I CAN SEE!

AND I LEARNED IN THAT

MEETING THAT THE HOLY

SPIRIT IS A HEALING

SPIRIT.

Pat: YES.

YOU SEE?

WHEN ONE GIFT IS WORKING,

THEY'RE ALL ACTIVE.

AND ALL MIRACLES -- ALL

KINDS OF MIRACLES HAPPEN.

THERE WAS A MOTHER AT THE

END OF THAT AUDITORIUM,

AND SHE HAD A LITTLE BABY

WITH TWISTED LIMBS.

THEY LOOKED TO ME AS

TWISTEDED ATWISTED AS SPAGHETTI.

AND SHE HELD HIM, AND SHE

COULDN'T COME FORWARD, SO

THEY PASSED THAT BABY

FORWARD, OVER THE HEADS OF

THE PEOPLE.

AND I STOOD HERE ON THE

PLATFORM, AND THEN IT

LANDED IN MY ARMS.

AND I FORGOT TO PRAY.

SUDDENLY THAT LITTLE BODY

BEGAN TO VIBRATE AND

VIBRATE AND VIBRATE.

AND I SAID, OH, IT'S THE

POWER OF GOD!

MAY THE LORD FORGIVE ME, I

DROPPED THAT CHILD.

BUT HE LANDED ON HIS FEET

AND STARTED TO RUN.

AND THEN I SAID, OH, W WHAT

A GLORY HE SHED ON OUR WAY

WHEN WE TRUST THE LORD.

Pat: AND THERE IS

NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH

HIM?

NO.

AND THIS BOOK IS ACTUALLY

MY LEGACY.

I MUST SAY THAT IT IS A

SUMMARY OF ALL OF THE KEY

HAPPENINGS IN THE SCHOOL

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

NOT SO MUCH STORIES, BUT

REAL MEAT THAT WILL GIVE

OTHERS A SHORT CUT.

I DIDN'T HAVE A SHORT CUT.

IT WAS TRIAL AND ERROR

UNTIL WE GOT THE PATTERN

THAT REALLY WORKED.

AND I BELIEVE THOSE WHO

READ THAT BOOK, THEY WILL

BE ABLE TO PUT THEIR FEET

INTO MY FOOTSTEPS.

AND WE ARRIVE AT THE SAME

MIGHTY HARVEST.

Pat: A WORD OFED GOD OF GOD IN

THEIR MOUTH WILL BE LIKE A

WORD OF GOD FROM YOUR

MOUTH.

AMEN.

Pat: WHERE DO THEY

GET THE BOOK?

THE BOOK IS ACTUALLY ON

OUR WEBSITE.

IT IS REINHARD

BONNKE.COM.

Pat: JUST THAT

SIMPLE, REINHARD

BONNKE.COM.

"ARE WE FLAMMABLE OR

FIRE-PROOF."

I'M SO GLAD REINHARD CAN

SHARE THIS WITH YOU.

HE MAY BE STOPPING IN

AFRICA, BUT HE AIN'T GOING

TO STOP FOR THE REST OF

THE WORLD.

YOU'VE GOT A MESSAGE FOR

THE REST OF THE WORLD,

BROTHER?

THAT WAS JUST AFRICA.

MY FAREWELL CRUSADE,

ACTUALLY, WAS IN NIGERIA.

I'M NOT STOPPING

PREACHING.

I'M GOING TO FRANCE AND

I'M GOING TO GERMANY, AND

I'M GOING TO WHEREVER GOD

SENDS ME AND GIVES ME THE

STRENGTH.

Pat: WELL, HE WILL

CONTINUE TO DO IT.

WE'RE SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT

IS CALLED "ARE WE

FLAMMABLE OR FIRE-PROOF."

THESE ARE MEDITATIONS ON

THE HOLY SPIRIT, ONE AFTER

THE OTHER, ABOUT THE POWER

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, WHO HE

IS, AND HOW YOU ACCESS

THIS POWER.

IT IS AN AMAZING BOOK.

"ARE WE FLAMMABLE OR

FIRE-PROOF."

THIS MAN IS GOD'S SPECIAL

ANOINTED.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS,

SO STAY TUNED.

Terry: WELCOME BACK.

WE WANT TO GET IN A COUPLE

OF QUESTIONS HERE BEFORE

THE END OF THIS PROGRAM.

LAURIE SAYS, "MY SON IS 22

YEARS OLD.

HE IS A HARD WORKER,

HONEST AND GOOD WITH

PEOPLE.

BUT FOR THE LAST FEW

MONTHS HE HAS BEEN SHOWING

SIGNS OF OBSESSIVE

COMPULSION SORTER.

DISORLTD.

DISORDER.

WHAT IF WE CAN'T COPE WITH

THIS?

WE NEED HELP."

Pat: THIS IS A

SERIOUS PROBLEM.

THESE THINGS ARE REAL.

THEY'RE NOT FAKE.

I THINK HE NEEDS

TREATMENT.

IT COULD BE DEMONIC.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

THINGS THAT CAUSE DISEASE.

BUT I RECOMMEND YOU GET IN

TOUCH WITH A CHRISTIAN

PROFESSIONAL, SOMEBODY WHO

REALLY LOVES THE LORD, AND

WHO KNOWS GOD, KNOWS THE

POWER OF GOD.

AND LET HIM SEE WHAT HE

CAN DO WITH YOUR SON.

Terry: HERE IS A

QUICK ONE: "I JUST FOUND

OUT THE REPUBLICAN TAX

REFORM DOES AWAY WITH

PERSONAL EXCEPTIONS,

HURTING ANY FAMILY WITH

TWO KIDS.

I FEEL LIED TO.

WHAT CAN I DO NOW?"

Pat: I THINK YOUR

WRONG.

I THINK WHAT THEY'VE DONE

IS MAKE THE PART WHERE YOU

DON'T HAVE TO ITEMIZE,

IT'S UP TO $12,000.

IT'S A LOT OF MONEY.

IT IS DOUBLE WHAT IT WAS

BEFORE.

SO THE PERSONAL EXEMPTION

THAT YOU MAY HAVE HAD

BEFORE IS INCORPORATED IN

THAT.

I DON'T THINK THEY'VE CUT

THOSE.

I THINK YOU'VE BEEN

MISLED.

> WE LEF YOU WIT HEAVE WERE YOU WITH

OUR POWER MINUTE: "THE

WHOLE MANNER OF LOVE THAT

THE FATHER HAS BE STOWED

ON US THAT WE SHALL BE

ON US THAT WE SHALL BE

CALLED CIRN OF GOD."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
