*

Pat: WELL, IT'S GOOD

TO SEE YOU.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY.

Wendy: HAPPY

VALENTINE'S DAY TO YOU,

PAT.

WE'RE SO GLAD TO SEE YOU.

Pat: WELL, I'M SO

GLAD TO BE HERE, I'M

TELLING YOU.

HEY, YOU KNOW, WE WE WILL

SPEND, IN AMERICA,

$20 MILLION ON VALENTINE'S

DAY.

AND VALENTINE WAS A ROMAN

NOBLE WHO ACCEPTED THE

LORD.

AND THEY KILLED HIM.

AND SO HE WAS WRITING TO

HIS WIFE, AND HE SIGNED

THESE CARDS, YOUR

VALENTINE.

AND IT WAS A GREAT LOVE

AFFAIR.

Wendy: SUCH A GREAT

LOVE STORY.

Pat: WE'RE

CELEBRATING A MAN WHO WAS

A DEDICATED CHRISTIAN WHO

WAS KILLED FOR HIS FAITH.

YOU KNOW WHAT THE LATEST

THING IS TODAY?

IT'S NOT FLOWERS.

IT'S NOT CANDY.

YOU KNOW WHAT THE HOTTEST

NEW GIFT IS?

Wendy: ON VALENTINE'S

DAY, IT'S NOT FLOWERS OR

CANDY, I CAN'T IMAGINE.

Pat: CHICKEN WINGS.

Wendy: NO.

Pat: BARBECUED

CHICKEN WINGS, MADE INTO A

LITTLE BOUQUET.

Wendy: DID SOMEBODY

GIVE THAT TO YOU FOR

VALENTINE'S DAY?

Pat: NOT ME.

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: THEY'RE GIVING

EACH OTHER --

Wendy: I'LL TAKE THE

RED ROSES AND THE CANDY

ANY TIME.

Pat: $20 MILLION ON

CANDY AND FLOWERS AND

CHICKEN WINGS AND DINNERS.

IT'S NICE.

Wendy: HAPPY

VALENTINE'S DAY TO YOU AND

TO EVERYBODY.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THE ISRAELI POLICE

HAVE APPARENTLY LOST THEIR

SENSES.

IN THE MIDST OF THE

TERRIBLE CRISIS THAT IS

FACING ISRAEL, THEY WANT

TO INDICT THEIR PRIME

MINISTER FOR CORRUPTION.

AND HE'S CALLING THE

CHARGES BASELESS AND FULL

OF HOLES, LIKE SWISS

CHEESE.

Wendy: CHRIS MITCHELL

BRINGS US THIS LOOK AT THE

CHARGES AGAINST NETANYAHU

AND HIS RESPONSE.

Chris: ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU ADDRESSED THE

NATIONWIDE AUDIENCE AND

VEHEMENTLY DENIED THE

CHARGES.

Through Translator:

ALL THOSE ATTEMPTS,

WITHOUT EXCEPTION, ENDED

WITH NOTHING BECAUSE I

KNOW THE TRUTH.

I'M TELLING YOU, ALSO,

THIS TIME THINGS WILL END

UP BEING NOTHING.

Chris: NETANYAHU SAID

EVERYTHING HE DID WAS FOR

THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY.

Through Translator:

THIS FEELING OF MISSION IS

THE REASON WHY I'M HERE,

AND THAT'S ALSO WHY YOU,

THE CITIZENS OF ISRAEL,

ARE GIVING ME YOUR TRUST

AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE

YOU YOU KNO KNOW THAT I'M DOING

EVERYTHING, WHEN ONLY ONE

THING IS IN FRONT OF MY

EYES: THE GOOD OF THIS

COUNTRY.

NOT FOR CIGARS FROM A

FRIEND, NOT FOR

JOURNALISTIC COVER, NOT

FOR ANYTHING, ONLY THE

GOOD OF THE COUNTRY, AND

NOTHING WILL DETER ME IN

THIS SACRED KINGDOM, ALSO,

NOT THE ACCUSATIONS.

Chris: THE POLICE

RECOMMENDED THAT NETANYAHU

BE I INDICTEDED FOR BRIBERY

AND BREACH OF TRUST, KNOWN

AS CASE 1,000 AND CASE

2,000.

CASE 1,000 CONTAINS

NETANYAHU RECEIVED

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

DOLLARS WORTH OF GIFTS

FROM TWO CLOSE FRIENDS IN

EXCHANGE FOR ADVOCATING

LEGISLATION THAT WOULD

BENEFIT THOSE FRIENDS.

CASE 2,000 ASSERTS

NETANYAHU MADE A DEAL WITH

A MAJOR ISRAELI PUBLISHER

FOR FAVORABLE COVERAGE

THAT WOULD WEAKEN A RIVAL

PUBLICATION.

THE RECOMMENDATIONS NOW GO

TO ISRAEL'S

ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

HE DECIDES WHETHER OR NOT

TO INDICT NETANYAHU OR

DISMISS THE CHARGES.

HIS DECISION COULD TAKE

MONTHS.

IN THE MEANTIME, HIS

POLITICAL RIVALS ARE

CALLING FOR NETANYAHU TO

RESIGN.

BUT EVEN IF HE IS

INDICTED, HE IS UNDER NO

LEGAL OBLIGATION TO STEP

DOWN.

NOW, WITH THE POSSIBLE WAR

WITH IRAN LOOMING ON THE

HORIZON, A VOLATILE MIDDLE

EAST, AND IMPROVED

RELATIONS WITH THE WHITE

HOUSE, ISRAEL'S

LONGEST-SERVING PRIME

MINISTER IS ENTERING THE

BATTLE OF HIS POLITICAL

AND LEGAL LIFE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: YOU ASK YOURSELF

WHY IN THE WORLD, IN THIS

TIME OF CRISIS, WITH

ISRAEL FACING POTENTIAL

NUCLEAR ADVERSARY, WOULD

THEY TRY TO WEAKEN THE

COUNTRY BY TAKING DOWN A

STRONG PRIME MINISTER?

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

ANYHOW, PEOPLE GET SO

FIXATED WITH POLITICAL

ANIMOSITY THAT THEY COME

UP WITH STUFF LIKE THIS.

JUST LIKE IN THIS COUNTRY,

THIS WITCH HUNT THAT IS

GOING ON AGAINST OUR

PRESIDENT, WE NEED TO STOP

IT.

WE NEED TO SHUT THAT

INVESTIGATION DOWN.

THE GUY HAS GONE ON LONG

ENOUGH ABOUT SO-CALLED

RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN OUR

ELECTION.

IT IS TIME TO GET ON.

WE HAVE GOT TO DEFEND OUR

COUNTRY.

WE'VE GOT TO REBUILD OUR

COUNTRY.

WE'VE GOT TO DO WHAT IS

NEEDED FOR OUR NATION, AND

I PRESIDENT NEEDS TO

O HAVHAVETHE SUPPORT OF THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

> IN OTHER NEWS,

AMERICA'S INTELLIGENCE

SERVICES HAVE ISSUED THEIR

LATEST WARNING ABOUT THE

INTERNATIONAL THREATS

AGAINST OUR COUNTRY.

AND JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: THANKS, PAT.

LEADERS OF THE NATION'S

INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES

TALKED ABOUT THOSE THREATS

ON CAPITOL HILL.

THEY SAY RUSSIA CONTINUES

TO MEDDLE IN AMERICAN

POLITICS, BUT THEY ALSO

WARNED ABOUT ANOTHER

GROWING DANGER, A THREAT

TO SOMETHING IN NEARLY

EVERY HOME AND WORKPLACE.

MARK MARTIN HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: NATIONAL

INTELLIGENCE DIRECTOR DAN

COATS ISSUED A DISTURBING

WARNING.

FRANKLY, THE UNITED

STATES IS UNDER ATTACK.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S SIX TOP

INTELLIGENCE LEADERS

TESTIFIED ON CAPITOL HILL

ABOUT THE THREATS FACING

THE UNITED STATES.

COATS TOLD THE ASSOCIATED

PRESS THAT CYBER HAS BEEN

A GAME-CHANGER IN MANY,

MANY WAYS.

U.S. INTELLIGENCE CAME TO

THE CONCLUSION THAT RUSSIA

MEDDLED IN THE 2016

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND

THREE OF THE OFFICIALS

SAID ON TUESDAY THAT THE

U.S. HAS SEEN ACTIVITY

FROM MOSCOW WITH THE GOAL

OF INTERFERING WITH THE

UPCOMING MID-TERM

ELECTIONS.

WE EXPECT RUSSIA TO

CONTINUE USING PROPAGANDA,

SOCIAL MEDIA, AND TO

EXACERBATE SOCIAL AND

POLITICAL FIGURES IN THE

UNITED STATES.

YOU'V HAVE YOU SEEN RUSSIA

ACTIVITY IN THE LEAD UP TO

THE 2018 ELECTION CYCLE.

YES.

Reporter: BUT IT

WASN'T JUST ABOUT RUSSIA.

THIS YEAR'S GLOBAL THREAT

ASSESSMENT ALSO REFERENCED

THE RISK OF A MILITARY

BATTLE, ESPECIALLY WITH

NORTH KOREA.

THE RISK OF INTERSTATE

CONFLICT IS HIGHER THAN AT

ANY TIME SINCE THE END OF

THE COLD WAR.

Reporter: AND THE

REPORT ALSO SINGLED OUT

RUSSIA, CHINA, AND IRAN AS

POSING THE GREATEST CYBER

THREATS TO THE U.S.

AND COATS WARNED THAT

CYBER THREATS ARE COMING

NOT ONLY FROM GOVERNMENTS,

BUT TERRORIST GROUPS,

CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS,

AND STUDENTS IN DORMS AND

PEOPLE IN THEIR BASEMENTS.

COATS SAYS THE U.S. NEEDS

TO COME UP WITH

PARTICIPANTS FOPENALTIESFOR PEOPLE WHO TRY TO HACK

THE GOVERNMENT OR

INTERNATIONAL

INSTITUTIONS, OR THEY'LL

JUST KEEP DOING IT.

MARK MARTIN, CBN'S.

John: THANKS, MARK.

PAT, YOU'VE BEEN WARNING

ABOUT CYBER WARFARE FOR A

WHILE?

Pat: INDEED.

IT IS SO DANGEROUS.

AND IT IS SO EASY TO DO,

IN A SENSE.

A GUY IN A GARAGE CAN HACK

OUR MAJOR SYSTEMS.

OUR MAJOR SYSTEMS HAVE

BEEN HACKED OVER AND OVER

AGAIN, ALL THE WAY UP THE

LINE TO OUR DEFENSE

DEPARTMENT.

IT IS AMAZING HOW

VULNERABLE WE ARE AND HOW

VULNERABLE EVERYBODY IS.

THESE HACKS GO ON, AND IT

IS JUST AMAZING.

BUT WE AT REGENT

UNIVERSITY -- I WANT TO

SAY -- HAVE STARTED A

PROGRAM ON CYBER SECURITY.

WE HAVE A CYBER RANGE.

IT IS THE ONLY UNIVERSITY,

AS FAR AS I KNOW, IN THE

UNITED STATES THAT HAS

ANYTHING AS SOPHISTICATED.

AND WE'RE OFFERING DEGREES

IN CYBER SECURITY.

WE'LL BE OFFERING

CERTIFICATES TO TRAIN

CYBER SPECIALISTS SO THEY

CAN GET ON THIS MACHINE.

A WAR GAME, A CYBER

ATTACK, AND A RESPONSE TO

IT, AND THEY CAN LEARN HOW

TO HANDLE THESE THINGS.

IT IS VERY SERIOUS, AND IT

IS PERVASIVE.

REGENT UNIVERSITY IS AT

THE FOREFRONT OF FIGHTING

THIS.

BUT IT WAS A SUGGESTION --

I MIGHT AD IN A PAGE OF

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL,

AND IT WAS VERY WISE, WHY

DON'T WE GO AFTER THEM?

THE N.S.A. HAS THE MOST

SOPHISTICATED CYBER

CAPABILITIES IN THE WORLD?

WHY NOT TAKE THEIR

VULNERABILITIES AND SPREAD

THEM WIDELY THROUGHOUT THE

RUSSIAN POPULOUS.

SOW DISCORD AMONG THEIR

LEADERSHIP.

IF THEY'RE GOING TO DO IT

TO US, WHY NOT DO IT TO

THEM?

WE HAVE BETTER CYBER

SECURITY.

WHY NOT INTERFERE WITH THE

WAR PLANS OF THE NORTH

KOREANS, FOR EXAMPLE?

OUR PEOPLE HAVE THE

CAPABILITY TO DO IT.

ANYHOW, REGENT UNIVERSITY

IS TRAINING PEOPLE.

LET ME GIVE YOU A

TELEPHONE NUMBER, BY THE

WAY.

WAY.

1-866-910-7615.

THAT'S REGENT UNIVERSITY.

THERE IS A MASTER'S

DEGREE, A DOCTORATE IN

CYBER SECURITY, PLUS THE

CERTIFICATE OF CYBER

SPECIALIST.

THERE ARE ONE MILLION JOBS

AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW.

Wendy: CYBER

SPECIALIST.

Pat: YOU GO THROUGH A

MONTH OR TWO, OR THREE

MONTHS OF INTENSE

TRAINING.

I MEAN, 24-HOUR A DAY --

INTENSE TRAINING IN CYBER

SECURITY.

AND OUT OF THAT WILL COME

A CYBER SPECIALIST.

SO WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO

DO THAT.

AND THERE ARE ONE MILLION

JOBS IN CYBER RIGHT NOW.

BECAUSE, BOY, EVERY

CORPORATION -- THE MAJOR

CORPORATIONS -- YOU LOOK

AT THE BIG BANKS HAVE BEEN

HACKED --

Wendy: EVEN

HOLLYWOOD.

Pat: OH, YES,

ESPECIALLY HOLLYWOOD.

I THINK THE NORTH KOREANS

TOOK AWAY ALL OF THE PLOT

STRUCTURES OF SOME OF

THEIR BIG MOVIES.

IT IS AMAZING.

OKAY.

WELL, JOHN, WHAT'S NEXT?

John: PAT, HERE IN

WASHINGTON, THE SENATE IS

TRYING TO COME UP WITH A

FIX FOR THE IMMIGRATION

SYSTEM AND WILL BE VOTING

THIS WEEK ON MULTIPLE

BILLS THAT AIM TO REFORM

THE NATION'S IMMIGRATION

LAWS.

BUT AS ABIGAIL ROBERTSON

REPORTS, IT IS UNCLEAR IF

ANY OF THOSE BILLS CAN GET

THE VOTES NECESSARY TO

PASS.

Reporter: SENATORS

BELIEVE THE TIME IS NOW

FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM,

AND THEY'RE DEEP INTO

NEGOTIATIONS.

THEY HOPE THE RIGHT

COMPROMISE WILL HELP THEM

GET THE 60 VOTES NEEDED TO

PASS IT BY THE END OF THIS

WEEK.

IF THERE ARE 60 VOTES

HERE IN THE SENATE, WE

SHOULD BE ABLE TO DISCOVER

THAT BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN

TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR

MONTHS.

Reporter:

CONSERVATIVES ARE PUSHING

FOR THE "SECURE AND

SUCCEED ACT," MODELED

AFTER THE PRESIDENT'S

IMMIGRATION FRAMEWORK.

THIS IS A GOOD SOLUTION

IN WHICH EVERYBODY GETS

SOMETHING THEY WANT.

Reporter: THE BILL

PROVIDES A PATHWAY TO

CITIZENSHIP FOR ABOUT

1.8 MILLION DREAMERS,

DESIGNATES $25 BILLION FOR

A BORDER WALL, ENDS THE

VES TVISA LAW.

IF ALL THEY WANT IS AN

ISSUE, THAT'S CYNICAL, SO

WE WON'T GET THE SOLUTION.

Reporter: ANOTHER

OPTION IS THE McCAIN

PLAN, WHICH LEAVES OUT THE

$5 BILLIO$25 BILLION FOR THE BORDER

WALL.

IF THEE PROPOSALS FAIL,

THE BODY WILL CONTINUE TO

WORK ITS BIPARTISAN WILL

FOR A BILL THAT CAN PASS.

THAT'S DIFFICULT.

FINDING 60 VOTES FOR

SOMETHING THAT MEETS THE

NEEDS OF BOTH SIDES AND

CAN DEAL WITH THE DREAMERS

AND BORDER SECURITY IS NOT

EASY.

Reporter: SCHUMER

SAYS DEMOCRATS WANT JUST

TWO THINGS: PROTECT THE

DREAMERS AND GET 60 VOTES.

THIS IS THE CLOSEST

WE'VE COME, AND EVERYBODY

HAS TO MAKE A REALLY FINAL

EFFORT.

Reporter: MAJORITY

LEADER MITCHELL

McCONNELL SAYS SENATORS

HAVE HAD PLENTY OF TIME TO

DEBATE THE ISSUE, AND

THERE IS NO REASON THEY

CAN'T REACH A BIPARTISAN

SOLUTION BY THE WEEKEND.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

John: THANKS,

ABIGAIL.

PAT, BACK TO YOU.

Pat: I'M SO GLAD

THEY'RE GETTING CLOSE.

YOU KNOW, THE DEMOCRATS

SAID, WE WANT IT, WE WANT

IT, WE WANT IT.

AND NOW THE PRESIDENT IS

SAYING, I'M GOING TO GIVE

YOU MORE THAN YOU ASK FOR.

AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE

SAYING, I'M NOT SURE WE

HAVE GOT THE VOTES.

IT IS RIDICULOUS.

WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO

STOP THIS?

THESE DREAMERS -- THEY

REALLY NEED TO GET A PATH

TO CITIZENSHIP.

THEY WERE BROUGHT HERE AS

CHILDREN.

THEY'RE FULL-FLEDGE

AMERICANS.

THEY HAVE LIVED HERE ALL

OF THEIR LIVES TO DATE,

HOWEVER OLD THEY ARE.

THEY'VE LIVED HERE.

THEY SPEAK ENGLISH.

THEY'RE FULL-FLEDGE

AMERICANS.

AND THEY NEED A PATH TO

CITIZENSHIP, AND THE

PRESIDENT SAYS, OKAY, YOU

ASKED FOR A SMALLER

NUMBER, AND I'M GOING TO

GIVE YOU A BIG NUMBER, SO

LET'S DO IT.

AND THE DEMOCRATS SAY,

WE'RE NOT SURE.

THIS IS NONSENSE.

THE ONLY THING I WOULD D IT WOULD DO

IS GIVE THE PRESIDENT A

VICTORY.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?

DON'T YOU WANT YOUR

PRESIDENT TO WIN

OCCASIONALLY?

I THINK WE SHOULD.

JOHN, WHAT'S NEXT?

John: PAT, AMERICANS

WILL BE SPENDING PLENTY OF

MONEY TO CELEBRATE

VALENTINE'S DAY THIS YEAR.

$19.6 BILLION.

IT WILL BE SPENT ON THINGS

LIKE CANDY, GREETING

CARDS, FLOWERS, GIFTS, AND

MORE.

THE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED

BY THE NATIONAL RETAIL

ASSOCIATION, AND I'M

LOOKING HERE, BUT NO

MENTION OF CHICKEN WINGS.

Pat: THEY JUST

WEREN'T UP TO DATE.

I'M GIVING THEM THE LAST

WORD.

Wendy: I HAVE GOT TO

SEE THIS.

Pat: A BOUQUET OF

CHICKEN WINGS, OF

BARBECUED CHICKEN WINGS.

Wendy: I THINK I

WOULD RATHER GET THE

CHICKEN WINGS THAN THE

BOUQUET OF FRUIT.

I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE

LIKE THAT AND IT IS

HEALTHY, BUT I WOULD

RATHER GET THE WINGS.

Pat: THAT WOULD BE A

GIFT OF LOVE FROM THE

HEART.

WENDY, WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: WE'LL HEAR

FROM A CELEBRITY COUPLE

WHO HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR

30 YEARS.

IT'S US AGAINST THE

WORLD.

BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE

DAY, IT'S GOING TO BE US.

THE KIDS ARE GONE, WE'RE

EMPTY-NESTORS, AND GUESS

WHO IS LEFT?

IT'S US.

Wendy: DAVID AND

TAMELA MANN TALK ABOUT

MARRIAGE AND ROMANCE,

AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, IT'S

VALENTINE'S DAY, AND

VALENTINE'S DAY IS A TIME

FOR COUPLES TO CELEBRATE

THEIR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER.

WELL, GOSPEL SINGERS DAVID

AND TAMELA MANN HAVE BEEN

MARRIED 30 YEARS.

TODAY THEY'RE SHARING AN

ANNOUNCEMENT EXCLUSIVELY

WITH CBN NEWS.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THIS LOOK

AT HOW THEY'RE ENCOURAGING

OTHERS TO PURSUE HAPPY AND

HEALTH MARRIAGES.

HEALTHY MARRIAGES.

Efrem: TAMELA MANN IS

FAMOUS FOR THAT SWEET AND

POWERFUL VOICE.

IT HAS EARNED HER GRAMMY

GOLD.

BUT THE GOSPEL RECORDING

ARTIST GRACES MAGAZINE

COVERS FOR HER LONG TIME

MARRIAGE TO FELLOW SINGER

AND ACTOR DAVID MANN.

I LOVE PHOTO SHOOTS,

ESPECIALLY FOR MAGAZINES

LIKE "UP SCALE."

I'M HONORED THEY WANT TO

DO A PIECE ON OUR FAMILY.

ARE YOU SURE THEY'VE

GOT THE RIGHT FAMILY?

Efrem: YOU'VE BEEN

MARRIED 30 YEARS.

YOU'RE BOTH HERE STILL IN

THE DALLAS-FORT WORTH

AREA.

TAKE US BACK TO THE

BEGINNING.

WHEN DID YOU MEET?

HOW OLD WERE YOU?

WE WERE 18 WHEN WE

FIRST MET.

ACTUALLY, MY BEST FRIEND

INTRODUCED US.

WE GREW UP TOGETHER, AND

THEN SHE WENT TO HIGH

SCHOOL WITH DAVID.

LET ME ADD, AT THE

TIME, WE WERE A PRETTY BIG

DEAL ON CAMPUS.

THERE WERE SOME GUYS

THAT SING, AND MY BEST

FRIEND SAID, Y'ALL SING

REAL GOOD, BUT I HAVE

SOMEONE WHO CAN OUTSING

Y'ALL.

AND WE WERE SINGING

AROUND TOWN, AND THE

LADIES WERE, LIKE, Y'ALL

SING SO GOOD.

AND MY BEST FRIEND

SAID, YOU GOT TO SING.

AND SHE BLEW US AWAY.

AND IT DEVELOPED INTO A

FRIENDSHIP.

NO...

YOU WERE ABOUT TO SAY

NO HANKY PANKY.

I HAD OTHERS ON THE

SIDE.

AND OUR RELATIONSHIP

DEVELOPED FROM FRIENDSHIP.

Efrem: AND THEY'RE

CELEBRATING, WRITING THEIR

FIRST BOOK, "US AGAINST

THE WORLD: OUR SECRETS TO

LOVE, MARRIAGE, AND

FAMILY."

Efrem: SO YOU DECIDE

TO WRITE A BOOK AFTER 30

YEARS OF MARRIAGE.

WHAT IS IT THAT HAPPENED

THAT INSPIRED YOU TO DO

IT?

I THINK WHAT HAPPENED

IS WE KEPT GETTING A LOT

OF PEOPLE COMING TO US FOR

ADVICE.

AND WE'VE KIND OF STARTED

OUT EARLY BECAUSE WE'RE

PEOPLE PEOPLE.

WE LOVE PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE

ARE ALWAYS AROUND US.

THAT KIND OF PUSHED US AND

MOTIVATED US AND OVER THE

YEARS, BUT WE KEPT PUSHING

IT OFF.

BUT THE LORD REALLY

PRESSED ME IN MY SPIRIT.

I TOLD DAVID, THERE IS

SOMETHING WE HAVE TO DO TO

ENCOURAGE FAMILIES.

AND WE'RE A SUPER-BLENDED

FAMILY.

AND WE WANTED TO SHARE

SOME OF OUR STORIES AND

SOME OF OUR EXPERIENCES

WITH OTHERS TO HELP THEM

WITH THEIR DAY TO DAY

LIVES.

WE SAT DOWN AND SAID,

LOOK, WE'VE GOT TO PUT

THIS BOOK TOGETHER.

SO HERE WE ARE, US AGAINST

THE WORLD.

OUR SECRETS TO LOVE,

MARRIAGE, AND FAMILY.

Efrem: HOW WOULD YOU

SAY YOU MASTERED THE

SECRETS?

WAS IT TRIAL AND ERROR?

WHAT HAPPENED?

I WOULD SAY TRIAL AND

ERROR.

IT'S JUST LIKE A JOB.

YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE TO WORK

AT IT.

MARRIAGE, YOU HAVE TO WORK

AT IT.

DIVORCE WAS NOT AN OPTION

FOR US.

WE TOOK THAT OFF THE

TABLE.

WHATEVER CAME, WE DECIDED

WE WERE GOING TO WORK

THROUGH IT.

YOU SAY IT IS A WORK IN

PROGRESS.

YES.

WE HAVEN'T DISCOVERED

THE MASTER SECRET TO ALL

OF THIS.

WE TELL EVERYBODY, WE

DON'T HAVE A PERFECT

MARRIAGE.

WHAT WE HAVE IS A MARRIAGE

THAT IS A WORK IN

PROGRESS.

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO

PAINT A PERFECT PICTURE

HERE.

THERE IS NO PERFECT COUPLE

BECAUSE EVERYBODY HAS

DISAGREEMENTS.

AND WE TALK ABOUT HOW WE

HANDLE SOME OF THE

DISAGREEMENTS WE HAVE.

WE DO TALK ABOUT SOME

OF OUR LOWS, BUT WE TALK

ABOUT A LOT OF OUR HIGHS.

AND WE SHARE A LITTLE BIT

OF MY PRACTICAL

JOKESTER -- I CALL IT MY

PRACTICAL JOKESTER.

AND HE HAS HAD A LOT.

Efrem: YOU GUYS ARE

NOT ONLY MARRIED AND HAVE

A FAMILY, BUT WORK

TOGETHER, FROM "MEET THE

BROWNS," TO "KIRK FRANKLIN

AND FAMILY."

MY FRIENDS CALL ME

LEROY BROWN.

THAT WAS ALWAYS MY

PRAYER.

Efrem: REALLY?

THAT WAS MY PRAYER AS A

YOUNG GIRL, THAT I WOULD

HAVE SOMEONE THAT DID THE

SAME THINGS THAT I DID.

SO I WANTED SOMEONE WHO

SANG AND WHO WAS

INTERESTED IN CHURCH AND

MUSIC BECAUSE THAT'S MY

LOVE.

MY FIRST LOVE IS SINGING,

MY PASSION.

AND THE LORD BLESSED ME

WITH SOMEONE WHO LOVES

WHAT I LOVE.

SO WE REALLY BUILT, YOU

KNOW, TOGETHER.

AND IT WENT FROM, YOU

KNOW, THE SINGING TO THE

ACTING.

WHICH THE ACTING IS WHAT

HE LOVES.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK,

HOW DO YOU JUGGLE THIS?

HOW DO YOU GIVE IT EQUAL

WEIGHT AND BALANCE?

AND I TELL EVERYBODY, I

NEVER GIVE MY MARRIAGE THE

SAME WEIGHT AND BALANCE.

I NEVER TRY TO BALANCE IT

WITH ANYTHING ELSE.

IT FAR OUTWEIGHS ANYTHING

ELSE I'LL EVER DO.

WHEN IT COMES TO WORK,

CAREER, KIDS, ANYTHING,

THIS IS MY FIRST MINISTRY.

I NEVER TRY TO BALANCE

ANYTHING AGAINST HER.

I TELL PEOPLE, LOOK, IF

THIS BUSINESS EVER GETS IN

THE WAY OF THIS, WE'LL

DISAPPEAR.

IT'S THE LORD FIRST,

AND THEN HIM.

AND THAT'S WHY WE CAME

UP WITH THE TITLE "US

AGAINST THE WORLD,"

BECAUSE AT THE END OF THE

DAY, IT IS GOING TO BE US.

THE KIDS ARE GONE, WE'RE

EMPTY-NESTORS, AND GUESS

WHO IS LEFT?

US.

AND WE'RE HAVING FUN.

Efrem: JUST ONE OF

MANY MARRIAGE AND FAMILY

LESSONS THE MANNS ARE

OPENING UP TO SHARE.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

DALLAS, TEXAS.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT MUCH

MORE ON THIS VALENTINE'S

DAY.

UP NEXT, SCOTT ROSS GETS

THE LOW-DOWN ON

VALENTINE'S DAY.

WHAT DO YOU DO ON

VALENTINE'S DAY?

NORMALLY I SIT BACK AND

WAIT AND SEE WHAT KIND OF

GIFTS I'LL GET.

Reporter: WHAT DOES

YOUR WIFE DO FOR YOU ON

VALENTINE'S DAY?

THAT'S A PROBLEM.

Wendy: STAY TUNED TO

FIND OUT WHY THAT IS A

PROBLEM.

> JUDITH ASKS, "IS IT

POSSIBLE THE CLOSER WE

COME TO CHRIST, THE MORE

SUFFERING COMES OUR WAY?"

Pat: HEY, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

AND WE'RE SO GLAD TO HAVE

YOU WITH US TODAY, WHICH

IS VALENTINE'S DAY.

BY THE WAY, SOME PEOPLE

LOVE IT, AND SOME PEOPLE

DREAD IT.

RECENTLY WE ASKED SCOTT

ROSS IF HE WOULD GO OUT TO

THE MALL TO TALK TO

SHOPPERS ABOUT THE BIG

DAY.

AND HERE IS WHAT HE

DISCOVERED.

Scott: VALENTINE'S

DAY, WHAT DO YOU KNOW

ABOUT VALENTINE'S DAY?

IT'S FOR LOVERS.

Scott: ARE YOU A

LOVER?

KIND OF, SORT OF.

Scott: WHAT ARE YOU

GOING TO DO ON VALENTINE'S

DAY?

WELL, MY CHURCH, WE'RE

GOING TO A MARRIAGE

RETREAT.

WE USUALLY GO EVERY YEAR,

ACTUALLY.

Scott: REALLY?

YEAH.

IT'S A TWO-DAY GET-AWAY.

Scott: IS HE A GOOD

VALENTINE?

OH, YEAH.

Scott: WHAT DO YOU DO

TO CELEBRATE?

SOMETIMES GO OUT.

Scott: HOW LONG HAVE

YOU BEEN MARRIED?

30 YEARS.

Scott: DO YOU HAVE

CHILDREN?

I HAVE 12 CHILDREN.

Scott: 12 CHILDREN.

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR YOUR

WIFE?

I TREAT HER GOOD.

GO TO A RESTAURANT.

Scott: WHAT DOES YOUR

WIFE DO FOR YOU ON

VALENTINE'S DAY?

THAT'S A PROBLEM.

Scott: WOULD DO YOU

MEAN IT'S A PROBLEM?

BECAUSE IT IS LIKE

VALENTINE'S DAY -- I GUESS

NOW IN OUR CULTURE, IT IS

ESTABLISHED MORE OF A

WOMAN'S THING.

Scott: WHAT DO YOU DO

ON VALENTINE'S DAY?

NORMALLY I SIT BACK AND

WAIT AND SEE WHAT KIND OF

GIFTS I'M GOING TO GET.

Scott: WHAT IS

VALENTINE'S DAY?

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?

NOT REALLY.

IT IS LOVE, I GUESS.

Scott: VALENTINE'S

DAY, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN

TO YOU?

IT MEANS YOU GET A LOT

OF CANDY.

Scott: REALLY?

YEAH.

JUST COME UP WITH SOME

CANDY.

Scott: WHAT DOES LOVE

MEAN TO YOU?

LOVE IS CARING,

SHARING.

IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU

HAVE FOR SOMEONE THAT OVER

RIDES YOUR NATURAL

JUDGMENT.

Scott: HOW DO YOU

EXPRESS YOUR LOVE?

I DO LITTLE THINGS FOR

THEM, TAKE THEM OUT TO

DINNER.

I MIGHT BUY THEM A LITTLE

WATCH OR NECKLACE, JUST,

LIKE, HEY, I LOVE YOU AND

I THINK ABOUT YOU.

Scott: SO WHEN THE

ACCEPT SAYS GOD IS LOVE,

THEN WHAT DOES THAT MEAN

TO YOU?

GOD IS LOVE.

AND I LOVE HIM DEARLY.

Scott: GOD IS LOVE,

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO

YOU?

IF YOU DON'T LOVE GOD,

THEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT

LOVE IS.

Scott: IS THAT RIGHT?

IF YOU CAN'T LOVE

VERTICALLY, THEN YOU CAN'T

POSSIBLY LOVE

HORIZONTALLY.

Pat: INTERESTING.

BUT REMEMBER, THE FIRST

VALENTINE, HE USED TO

WRITE HIS WIFE AND SEND

HER -- WELL, HE SIGNED THE

LETTERS, YOUR VALENTINE.

AND HIS NAME WAS

VALENTINE.

AND HE WAS A ROMAN NOBLE,

AND HE ACCEPTED THE LORD,

AND THEY KILLED HIM FOR

HIS FAITH.

SO THE FIRST VALENTINE,

THE LOVE WAS THE LOVE THAT

HE HAD FOR THE LORD AND

THE LOVE HE HAD FOR HIS

WIFE.

SO, WHAT DO YOU HAVE?

Wendy: A VERY

ROMANTIC STORY.

> ALL RIGHTY, WE'VE GOT

SOME QUESTIONS FOR PAT.

JUDITH WRITES IN, "IS IT

POSSIBLE THE CLOSER WE

BECOME TO CHRIST THE MORE

SUFFERING COMES OUR WAY.

IN THESE CURRENT POSSIBLY

END TIMES, ARE THOSE WHO

WALK DAILY WITH CHRIST

BECOMING MORE VULNERABLE

TO DARK SPIRITS?

HIGH NEED FOR PROTECTION

HAS NEVER BEEN STRONGER."

Pat: I DON'T THINK WE

OUGHT TO BE SITTING AROUND

AFRAID.

THE TRUTH -- IT'S LIKE AN

AIRPLANE.

WHEN AN AIRPLANE GETS TO

THE SPEED OF SOUND, IT

BEGINS TO BE BUFFETED.

AND THEN IT BREAKS

THROUGH, AND, YOU KNOW,

OCCASIONALLY I WOULD FLY

THE CONCORDE TO EUROPE,

AND YOU WOULD GET OVER TO

EUROPE IN ABOUT THREE

HOURS AND 18 MINUTES.

BUT WHEN THE AIRPLANE

WOULD APPROACH THE SPEED

OF SOUND, THERE WAS A BOOM

OR A BREAKTHROUGH AND BEF

BUFFETING, AND THEN

EVERYTHING WAS QUIET AND

CALM.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT YOU

OUGHT TO THINK OF WHEN

YOU'RE ON YOUR WALK WITH

THE LORD.

WHEN YOU'RE IN AND OUT AND

IN AND OUT AND YOU'RE NOT

QUITE SURE HOW YOU'LL

RELATE TO THE LORD, YOU'LL

BE BUFFETED BECAUSE THE

DEVIL WILL DO EVERYTHING

TO GET YOU BACK IN.

WHEN YOU GET THROUGH, AND

YOU'VE REALLY MADE A

COMMITMENT, THERE WILL BE

A REST.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, THERE

YET REMAINS A REST FOR THE

PEOPLE OF GOD.

SO THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

Wendy: THAT'S A GREAT

ANALOGY.

YOU'RE SO LUCKY YOU GOT TO

GO ON THE CONCORDE.

Pat: YES.

I'LL TELL YOU, I WAS SO

SAD WHEN THAT THING WAS --

I WAS ON IT ONE DAY AND

THE THING STARTED HAVING

TROUBLE, AND THEY LANDED

US IN IRELAND, AND WE HAD

TO WAIT IN SHANNON ISLAND,

I THINK, FOR A WHILE.

AND THEY BROUGHT THE

SECOND -- WHATEVER THEY

CALL IT -- THAT SECTION

OVER, AND THEY PICKED US

UP AND CARRIED US ON TO

LONDON.

IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE.

HAVE YOU EVER --

Wendy: I NEVER GOT

TO.

I KNOW BACK IN THE '90s

IT WAS A BIG THING.

Pat: YOU COME ACROSS

THE OCEAN IN THREE HOURS

AND 20 MINUTES OR

SOMETHING.

Wendy: INCREDIBLE.

Pat: THEY THINK THEY

HAVE GOTTEN THE SONIC BOOM

TAKEN CARE OF, AND THERE

ARE SOME CORPORATE JETS

THAT THEY'RE BUILDING NOW,

WHICH WILL BE AVAILABLE.

SCAWEXCUSE ME.

I JUST CHOKED.

Wendy: HERE IS

ANOTHER QUESTION FOR YOU,

PAT: "THERE ARE A NUMBER

OF YouTube PROPHETS

WHO ARE URGING BELIEVERS

TO LEAVE THE CITIES AND

PREPARE SAFE HAVENS IN THE

HADN'T AREAS FOR THE

COMING JUST OF GOD.

MANY SEEM TO BE JUMPING ON

THIS BANDWAGON.

CAN YOU ADDRESS THESE

PROPHECIES AND THEIR LICH

LEGITIMACY?"

Pat: I'LL SAY IT IS

NONSENSE.

ALL OF THIS SURVIVOR

STUFF -- A FEW THOUSAND

PEOPLE, MAYBE 100,000 OUT

OF 300 MILLION WILL GET

TAKEN CARE OF IN THAT WAY.

THE REST OF THEM WILL DIE.

AND THAT'S NOT TOO COOL.

I THINK THIS IDEA THAT

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

LITTLE SURVIVOR COMMUNITY,

AND WE'LL HAVE OUR FOOD

AND WATER ALL TAKEN CARE

OF -- THERE IS NOTHING

WRONG WITH HAVING SOME

WATER, SOME DRIED FOOD OR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT STORED

UP, SO IF THERE IS AN

IMMEDIATE CRISIS.

BUT THE TRUTH IS, IT WILL

TAKE MAYBE THE FIRST FEW

WEEKS, WHICH WILL BE THE

MOST INTENSE.

BEYOND THAT, YOU'LL RUN

OUT OF FOOD ANYHOW.

SO THE IDEA OF MOVING FROM

THE CITY OUT TO THE

COUNTRY -- NO WAY.

NO WAY.

Wendy: THIS VIEWER

SAYS, "MY BANK HAS NEW

TECH SERVICES.

ONE IS A HAND SCANNER SO I

WON'T HAVE TO SI SIGN THE OLD

WAY.

PAT, IS THIS THE MARK OF

THE BEAST?

I'VE ALWAYS HEARD THE MARK

WOULD BE ON THE HAND FOR

THE FOREHEAD."

Pat: YOUR HAND MEANS

YOUR ACTIONS, AND YOUR

FOREHEAD MEANS YOUR

THOUGHTS, SO IT IS

SYMBOLIC, THOSE TERMS.

THE BIBLE TELLS US THE

TIME WILL COME WHEN YOU

CAN'T BUY OR SELL WITHOUT

THE MARK OF THE

ANTI-CHRIST IN SOME

FASHION.

I BELIEVE WE'RE GETTING

THAT WAY.

THE THOUGHT IS THEY'RE

TRYING TO PUT A MICROCHIP

INTO YOUR HAND, AND THAT

WILL HAVE ALL OF YOUR

LIFE'S MATERIAL, YOUR

HEALTH, YOUR FINANCES --

EVERYTHING WILL BE IN THAT

CHIP.

IS IT COMING?

I'M AFRAID IT MAY, AND I'M

AFRAID IT MAY FULFILL THE

BIBLICAL PROPHECY.

Wendy: LINDA SAYS, "I

WAS JUST GIVEN A SEVERANCE

PACKAGE FROM MY EMPLOYER

OF 23 YEARS, I'M AT HOME

AND LOOKING AT ALL OF THE

STUFF I'VE ACCUMULATED,

AND I'M ASHAMED OF ALL OF

MY HOARDING.

DO YOU THINK THE LORD

WOULD WANT ME TO GIVE ALL

OF IT AWAY?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

YOUR STATUS, BUT A LOT OF

PEOPLE DECIDE THEY HAVE

TOO MUCH AND STUFF BECOMES

A BURDEN.

AND THEY'RE GLAD TO GIVE

IT TO THEIR CHILDREN OR TO

SOME WORTHY CAUSES AND TO

FREE THEMSELVES FROM ALL

OF THAT STUFF.

AND SO I KNOW WHEN I WAS

UP IN NEW YORK, THE LORD

TOLD ME THAT I HAD TO SELL

MY FURNITURE AND GIVE THE

MONEY TO THE POOR AND GET

READY TO FOLLOW HIM.

BECAUSE I NEEDED TO BE

FREE.

AND MANY OF US NEED TO BE

FREE.

AND THEN AFTER THAT TIME,

GOD MAY ACCUMULATE A WHOLE

LOT MORE.

SO IT JUST DEPENDS.

BUT MATERIAL POSSESSIONS

CAN BURDEN US.

AND SO YOU'RE ASKING

SHOULD YOU BE FREE FROM

THAT?

I DON'T KNOW YOUR

SITUATION, BUT THERE IS A

DESIRE IN MANY PEOPLE NOT

TO BE ENCUMBERED, AND

STUFF E ENCUMBERS YOU.

Wendy: THANKS SO

MUCH, PAT.

THOSE WERE GREAT ANSWERS

AND SOME GREAT QUESTIONS.

STILL AHEAD, TWO LONELY

HEARTS MEET JUST TWO DAYS

AFTER VALENTINE'S.

I KNOW THIS SOUNDS

CHEESCHEESY, BUT IT IS LIKE

TIME JUST STOPPED FOR A

SECOND.

I SAW HIM, AND GOD WAS,

LIKE, THERE HE IS.

I REMEMBER THE SECOND I

SAW HIM, I HEARD THE LORD

WHISPER, THERE SHE IS.

Wendy: SEE THEIR LONG

OVERDUE LOVE STORY.

THAT'S COMING UP.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

THE F.B.I. IS

CONTRADICTING THE WHITE

HOUSE, SAYING IT GAVE THE

ADMINISTRATION INFORMATION

ABOUT ALLEGATIONS ON STAFF

SECRETARY ROB PORTER

SEVERAL TIMES LAST YEAR.

THE WHITE HOUSE CLAIMED

THE PORTER INVESTIGATION

WAS STILL UNDER WAY AND

ONLY LEARNED HOW SERIOUS

THE ACCUSATIONS WERE JUST

LAST WEEK, JUST BEFORE HE

RESIGNED.

> HOW SHOULD THE CHURCH

RESPOND TO THE DEBATE ON

IMMIGRATION?

THAT'S THE QUESTION CBN

NEWS IS ASKING ON OUR OUR

POLITICAL TALK SHOW "FAITH

NATION."

TENNEY SUAREZ WILL DISCUSS SHARE

IN THE DISCUSSION.

YOU CAN TUNE INTO "FAITH

NATION" BEGINNING AT 12:30

EASTERN EVERY WEDNESDAY ON

OUR CBN Facebook PAGE.

THAT'S Facebook/CBN

NEWS.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE

OF TODAY'S "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

AND HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY.

WELL, VALENTINE'S DAY CAN

BE PRETTY DEPRESSING IF

YOU DON'T HAVE THAT

SPECIAL SOMEONE IN YOUR

LIFE.

AND IF THAT'S YOU, OUR

NEXT STORY IS REALLY GOING

TO WARM YOUR HEART.

IT IS ABOUT TWO PEOPLE WHO

HAD ALMOST GIVEN UP ON

LOVE UNTIL THE MOMENT THEY

MET.

IT FELT LIKE GOD HAD

LET ME DOWN.

Reporter: IT WAS 2001

WHEN JOSH ADAMS STARTED

DATING THE WOMAN HE WAS

CONVINCEDED GOCONVINCED GOD INTENDEDED INT ENDED HIM

TO MARRY.

BUT AFTER SIX YEARS, HE

FELT LIKE GOD WAS URGING

HIM TO O EN END THE

RELATIONSHIP.

I WOULD PRAY ABOUT IT,

AND I WOULD ASK GOD TO FIX

IT OR TO BLESS IT, AND HE

WAS NOT BLESSING IT.

Reporter: JOSH BROKE

UP WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND,

BUT HIS OBEDIENCE WASN'T

BASED ON TRUST.

INSIDE, I KNEW I WAS

ONLY BEING FAITHFUL

BECAUSE I HAD A SENSE OF

DUTY.

AND ALL OF THAT TURNED

INTO KIND OF A SHAKE AND A

FIST AT HIM, LIKE WHY NOT,

BECAUSE I DID MY PART.

AND I'M NOT GOING TO

FOLLOW YOUR RULES ANYMORE.

I'M GOING TO GO OUT AND

GET DRUNK AND GO TO THESE

PLACES THAT I DON'T

BELONG, AND THAT WILL SHOW

GOD.

Reporter: WHEN

REBELLION DIDN'T SOLVE

ANYTHING, HE TOOK HIS

FRUSTRATION ABOUT HIS

FUTURE TO GOD.

AND I STARTED PRAYING

AND JUST KIND OF LETTING

GOD HAVE IT.

GOD, I DON'T UNDERSTAND

WHY.

AND I FELT GOD JUST SAY TO

ME, YOU KNOW, SHE EXISTS,

AND SHE IS NOT VERY FAR

AWAY.

BUT SHE IS VERY SPECIAL TO

ME.

AND I'M NOT GIVING HER TO

YOU IN THIS STATE THAT

YOU'RE IN RIGHT NOW.

AND HE FOLLOWED THAT UP BY

SAYING THAT YOU NEED TO

GET THIS RELATIONSHIP

RIGHT.

IT HAS TO BE ABOUT YOU

FALLING IN LOVE WITH ME.

Reporter: JUST A FEW

MILES AWAY, ON THE CAMPUS

OF CHARLESTON SOUTHERN

UNIVERSITY, MUSIC MAJOR

ASHLEY WILLIAMS WAS ALSO

SEEKING GOD FOR ANSWERS.

LIKE JOSH, SHE HAD FOUND

SOMEONE WHO SEEMED TO BE

THE PERFECT FIT, BUT

SOMETHING JUST WASN'T

RIGHT.

GOD HAS A WAY OF

GETTING OUR ATTENTION.

BECAUSE WHEN THAT HOLY

DISCONTENT COMES, IT'S

LIKE IT WON'T LET GO UNTIL

YOU MAKE IT RIGHT.

I KNEW I WAS NOT GOING TO

HAVE PEACE IN MY HEART

UNTIL I MADE THIS RIGHT,

UNTIL I BROKE OFF THE

RELATIONSHIP.

IT WAS A LEAP OF FAITH, IT

REALLY WAS.

BECAUSE GOD TELLING ME I

HAVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT

AND I HAVE SOMETHING

BETTER, AND YET I'M GOING

TO CALL OFF THIS STABLE

RELATIONSHIP?

THERE WERE PLENTY OF

PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT I WAS

CRAZY.

Reporter: ASHLEY DOVE

INTO SCRIPTURE FOR

COMFORT.

HE HAD A PLAN, GERM MY

JEREMIAH11, HE HAS A PLAN FOR

GOOD.

HE HAD SOMETHING GOOD IN

STORE, BUT I HAD TO WAIT.

AND THAT WAS REALLY HARD.

I'M NOT A VERY STILL

PERSON.

I WANT TO HAVE ANSWERS.

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS

NEXT.

I WANT TO KNOW WHERE I'M

GOING.

AND AS I BEGAN TO FOCUS ON

THE THINGS THAT ARE GOOD,

THAT ARE TRUE, THAT ARE

RIGHT, THIS PEACE BEGAN TO

COME IN MY HEART.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

JOSH HAD A REVELATION OF

HIS OWN.

THE SHIFT FOR ME BECAME

NOT JUST DOING THE RIGHT

THINGS, BUT DOING THOSE

THINGS BECAUSE I'M SEEKING

HIM.

SO WHEN I STUDIED THE

BIBLE, I DID THAT LOOKING

FOR HIM TO SPEAK TO ME AND

DESIRING TO HEAR WHAT HE

HAD TO SAY INTO MY LIFE.

WHEN I PRAYED, IT WASN'T

JUST, LET ME LIST ALL OF

THE THINGS THAT ARE ON MY

HEART.

IT WAS, YOU KNOW, A

CONVERSATION WITH GOD AND

LEARNING HOW TO BE QUIET

AND LET HIM SPEAK TO ME.

WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE

MORNING, HE WAS THE ONLY

THING THAT MATTERED.

Reporter: ON

VALENTINE'S DAY 2008,

ASHLEY MADE A DECLARATION

IN HER JOURNAL.

I JUST REMEMBER

WRITING, GOD, IF I DON'T

HAVE ANYBODY, YOU'RE

ENOUGH.

I WANTED TO CELEBRATE MY

LOVE FOR MY SAVIOR AND FOR

THE PEOPLE THAT HE HAD PUT

IN MY LIFE.

Reporter: JUST TWO

DAYS LATER, JOSH AND

ASHLEY MET AT HER SENIOR

RECITAL.

I KNOW THIS SOUNDS

CHEESY, BUT IT IS LIKE

TIME JUST STOPPED FOR A

SECOND.

I SAW HIM, AND GOD'S LIKE,

THERE HE IS.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

THAT'S HIM?

I WILL NEVER GET OVER THAT

FEELING.

I REMEMBER THE SECOND I

SAW HER, I HEARD THE LORD

WHISPER, THERE SHE IS.

I JUST REMEMBER HEARING

HER TALK.

SHE WAS SO PASSIONATE

ABOUT THE LORD.

SHE IS THE MOST RADIANT

PERSON I'VE MET IN MY

LIFE.

SHE ABSOLUTELY EXUDES THIS

JOY AND ZEAL FOR GOD.

Reporter: JOSH AND

ASHLEY STARTED DATING, GOT

ENGAGED, AND ON

NOVEMBER 22, 2008, THEY

MARRIED.

THEY SAY THE MOST

IMPORTANT THING, WHETHER

YOUR MARRIED OR SINGLE, IS

PURSUING A LOVE

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

YOU'VE GOT TO FOLLOW

HIM FIRST.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE STABLE IN

YOURSELF AND IN YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM

FIRST.

WHEN WE WAIT ON HIS

TIMING, AMAZING THINGS

HAPPEN.

WE BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE THE

ABUNDANT LIFE THAT HE

REALLY WANTS FOR US.

Wendy: WHEN WE WAIT

ON GOD'S TIMING, AMAZING

THINGS CAN HAPPEN FOR US.

I KNOW WAITING IS THE

HARDEST PART, BELIEVE ME.

BUT GOD REALLY IS

FAITHFUL.

HE SAYS HIS TIMING IS

PERFECT.

IF YOU'RE STILL WAITING

FOR LOVE, IF YOU'RE GOING

THROUGH SOMETHING TODAY,

MAYBE A HEARTBREAK OR JUST

FEELING LONELY, WE WANT TO

HELP.

JUST REACH OUT TO US:

1-800-700-7000.

AND WE'VE GOT OUR

COUNSELLORS STANDING BY TO

JUST CHAT WITH YOU, TALK

WITH YOU, AND PRAY WITH

YOU.

BECAUSE PRAYER IS

POWERFUL, AND PRAYER CAN

CHANGE EVERYTHING.

THAT COUPLE HAD PRAYED

BEFORE THEY MET EACH

OTHER.

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU

WITH THAT TODAY.

> HERE IS A STORY:

ARIEL LITERALLY HAD A

BROKEN HEART AND

DESPERATELY NEEDED SURGERY

TO FIX IT.

HER PARENTS KNEW THEIR

DAUGHTER WAS DYING, AND

THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING THEY COULD DO TO

SAVE HER.

Reporter: ARIEL IS A

HAPPY CHILD.

SHE LIKES COLORING WITH

HER BIG SISTER, GAB GEE.

GABBY.

BUT THERE ARE LOTS OF

THINGS SHE CANNOT DO.

I WANT TO RUN AND PLAY

WITH HER, BUT SHE ALWAYS

GETS TIRED.

Reporter: ARIEL WAS

BORN WITH A HOLE IN HER

HEART, AND DOCTORS WARNED

HER PARENTS NOT TO LET

THEIR DAUGHTER EXERT

HERSELF.

MANY TIMES SHE FAINTED AND

HAD DIFFICULTY BREATHING.

WE RAN AS FAST AS WE

COULD TO THE HEALTH

CENTER.

Reporter: DOCTORS AT

THE CLINIC ROUTINELY GAVE

ARIEL OXYGEN.

BUT THEY ALWAYS REMINDED

HER PARENTS SHE NEEDED

OPEN-HEART SURGERY TO

REPAIR A HOLE IN HER LEFT

VENTRICLE.

WITHOUT SURGERY, THEY SAY

ARIEL WOULD DIE.

WE PUT HER IN GOD'S

HANDS.

WE HAD NO MONEY TO HELP

HER.

I LOVE MY SISTER SO

MUCH, AND I WAS WORRIED

ABOUT HER.

SO I PRAYED TO JESUS AND

ASKED HIM TO HEAL HER

HEART.

Reporter: AFTER MORE

THAN 30 TRIPS TO THE

HOSPITAL IN THREE YEARS,

THE FAMILY RECEIVED SOME

GOOD NEWS: "OPERATION

BLESSING" HAD LEARNED OF

ARIEL'S CONDITION AND

ARRANGED FOR HER TO

RECEIVE FREE OPEN-HEART

SURGERY.

ARIEL WAS IN SURGERY

FOR FIVE TO SIX HOURS.

THE SURGERY WAS

SUCCESSFUL.

I JUST CRIED AND THANKED

GOD WHEN I HEARD THE GOOD

NEWS.

Reporter: NOW ARIEL

PLAYS AND ENJOYS HER LIFE

LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

GOD HEALED HER.

NOW SHE CAN JUMP, LAUGH,

PLAY, AND SHOUT.

IT WAS LIKE A DREAM

COME TRUE.

WE COULD ONLY ASK GOD FOR

AN OPPORTUNITY, AND HE DID

IT.

THANKS TO "OPERATION

BLESSING," MY SISTER NOW

HAS A NEW HEART.

Wendy: AND IF YOU ARE

A MEMBER OF "THE 700

CLUB," YOU'RE PART OF

THAT.

YOU MADE THAT HAPPEN FOR

LITTLE ARIEL AND HER SWEET

FACE -- JUST BLOWING US A

KISS RIGHT NOW ON

VALENTINE'S DAY.

THAT WOULD NO HAVE

HAPPENED.

SHE MIGHT NOT EVEN BE HERE

IF IT WASN'T FOR YOU.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A

PART OF HELPING PEOPLE ALL

OVER THE WORLD, AND

HELPING SPREAD THE GOSPEL

OF JESUS CHRIST ALL OVER

THE WORLD, WE WANT TO MAKE

THAT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO

DO RIGHT NOW BY GOING TO

YOUR PHONES AND SAYING,

YES, I WANT TO JOIN "THE

700 CLUB."

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A

MONTH, IS ALL IT TAKES TO

BECOME A CBN PARTNER.

WHEN YOU DO, WE WANT TO

GIVE YOU THIS, AND THIS IS

PAT'S LATEST TEACHING ON

ANSWERED PRAYER.

PRAYER IS THE GREATEST

THING WE HAVE.

AND PRAYER REALLY CAN LEAD

TO MIRACLES.

WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS.

THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

> UP NEXT, RUMBLINGS

AROUND THE GLOBE THAT A

TSUNAMI OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

IS ON ITS WAY.

THE QUESTION IS: ARE YOU

READY?

MORE ON WHAT IS BEING

CALLED THE MOTHER OF ALL

REVIVALS, WHEN JOHN AND

CAROL ARNOTT JOIN US,

AFTER THIS.

Wendy: MORE THAN 24

YEARS AGO, A REVIVAL BEGAN

IN CANADA THAT HAS SWEPT

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

> AND NOW THE FOUNDERS

OF THAT MOVEMENT SAY

SOMETHING EVEN BIGGER IS

ON THE WAY.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: JOHN AND

CAROL ARNOTT ARE BEST

KNOWN FOR THEIR REVIVAL

INDUSTRIES.

NOW, MORE THAN 20 YEARS

LATER, THEY SAY A HOLY

TSUNAMI IS ON THE HORIZON.

I BELIEVE IN THESE DAYS

THAT WE'RE ENTERING INTO,

WHETHER THEY BE A YEAR,

TWO YEARS, WHATEVER IT IS,

WE NEED TO LEARN TO HEAR

HIS VOICE.

AND OBEY IT IMMEDIATELY.

Reporter: IN THEIR

LATEST BOOK, "PREPARING

FOR THE GLORY," THE

ARNOTTS TELL CHRISTIANS

HOW TO GET READY FOR THE

NEXT WAVE OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

Wendy: AND PLEASE

WELCOME BACK TO "THE 700

CLUB" JOHN AND CAROL

ARNOTT.

GREAT TO SEE YOU GUYS.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

Wendy: LET ME ASK

YOU, WHAT SIGNS ARE YOU

SEEING THAT INDICATE THAT

THE MOTHER OF ALL REVIVALS

IS ON THE WAY?

WHOEVER WANTS TO GO FIRST.

WELL, I THINK

EVERYWHERE WE GO, WE SEE

INCREASE IN TERMS OF THE

BROAD SPECTRUM, AND ALSO

THE INTENSITY OF

EVERYTHING AGAIN.

REVIVALS TEND TO EBB AND

FLOW.

AND NOW WE'RE GETTING UP

TO THOSE KIND OF LEVELS

AGAIN.

AND IT JUST FEELS LIKE

THERE IS A VOLCANO UNDER

OUR FEET, READY TO BLOW.

Wendy: CAROL, WHAT

WILL THIS NEXT WAVE OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT BE LIKE, FEEL

LIKE, LOOK LIKE?

WELL, I REALLY FEEL

THAT FROM A DREAM THAT I

HAD HAD A COUPLE OF YEARS

AGO, THE NEXT CLOUD THAT

COMES DOWN IS A CLOUD OF

THE AWESOME REVERENT FEAR

OF THE LORD.

BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN SAYING,

GOD, WE WANT TO SEE THE

BLIND SEE, WE WANT TO SEE

THE DEAF HEAR, WE WANT TO

SEE THE DEAD RISE.

AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS

JESUS DID IN HIS MINISTRY,

AND THOUSANDS CAME TO

JESUS.

AND THAT'S, I THINK, WHAT

WE'RE LONGING FOR.

BECAUSE THE HARVEST HAS TO

COME IN.

Wendy: AND YOU SAID

YOU HAD A DREAM?

I DID.

A POWERFUL DREAM.

WHERE WE WERE PLAYING --

THE CHURCH IN GENERAL WAS

PLAYING "ONE FOOT WITH THE

LORD AND ONE FOOT NOT,"

AND GOD IS SUCH A LOVING

GOD, AND SO I CAN DO THIS

AND GO REPENT.

AND HE'LL FORGIVE ME AND I

CAN GO ON.

BUT GOD IS REQUIRING, AS

WE STEP INTO GREATER SIGNS

OF WONDERS, GREATER

MIRACLES, HE REQUIRES A

HOLINESS OF OUR HEARTS.

SO A RIGHT ATTITUDE TO

GOD.

TO BE CHILDREN AND LISTEN,

TO HEAR HIS VOICE AND

LISTEN AND OBEY.

WHEN HE SAYS DO SOMETHING,

DO IT.

NOT, WELL, LORD, I'LL DO

IT LATER.

Wendy: GET READY.

YEAH.

AND HE SAID, IF YOU DON'T

WANT THAT, GET OUT.

BEGAN, IN THE DREAM IT WAS

RUN FOR YOUR LIVES BECAUSE

THAT GLORY CLOUD WAS

COMING DOWN.

Wendy: WOW!

AGAIN, IT'S NOT A

HOLINESS THING.

IT IS A REVERENT FEAR.

A HOLINESS OF THE HEART.

Wendy: JOHN, HOW DO

WE PREPARE OUR HEART?

I THINK THE REAL KEY IS

FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM.

MEANING SPEND TIME WITH

HIM.

BATHE IN HIS PRESENCE.

REALLY GET CONNECTED WITH

HIM.

THAT'S WHAT DID IT FOR US

INITIALLY.

AND WE'RE STILL CONTENDING

FOR THAT TO THIS DAY.

Wendy: YES.

THE FATHER'S HEART HAS

ALWAYS BEEN THE FOUNDATION

OF YOUR MINISTRY?

YES.

WHEN YOU'RE REALLY IN LOVE

WITH HIM, YOU DON'T DO

THINGS THAT HURT HIM OR

OFFEND HIM.

IT IS ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT KEEPS YOU CLOSE.

I SEE THAT AS A MAJOR KEY.

BUT THE REQUIREMENT FOR

HOLINESS IS STILL THERE.

Wendy: RIGHT.

DO WHAT HE SAYS KIND OF

THING.

Wendy: WHAT ARE SOME

PRACTICAL WAYS WE CAN GET

READY.

YOU JUST SAID SPENDING

TIME WITH HIM.

SPEND TIME WITH HIM.

GET FILLED UP WITH HIM.

I LIKE A BALANCE OF THREE

THINGS.

THE INWARD JOURNEY IS FOR

US, THE UPWARD JOURNEY IS

FOR HIM, AND THE OUTWARD

JOURNEY IS FOR OUR MISSION

AND OUR MINISTRY.

SO YOU NEED TO BE HEALTHY

IN ALL THREE OF THOSE

AREAS AND NOT JUST MISS

ONE, LIKE THE INWARD

JOURNEY.

Wendy: I KNOW YOU ALL

ARE STILL TRAVELLING

AROUND THE WORLD.

WHAT KINDS OF SIGNS AND

WONDERS ARE YOU SEEING IN

YOUR MINISTRY RIGHT NOW?

WELL, IN ENGLAND, IT

WAS AMAZING BECAUSE OUT OF

MY MOUTH CAME EVERYBODY

THAT HAD EVERYBODY IN A

WHEELCHAIR OR CAN'T WALK,

COME UP TO THE FRONT

BECAUSE GOD IS GOING TO

HEAL YOU.

AND I WENT, OH, WHAT HAVE

I JUST SAID?

JAI WAS ABSOLUTELY -- I HAD

THIS LITTLE NECKLACE ON

THAT SAID, "GOD'S GOT

THIS."

AND I'M REALLY FREAKING

BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED OUT OF MY MOUTH

BECAUSE IT WASN'T IN MY

HEAD.

AND I TOUCHED THIS, AND I

SAID, GOD, I DON'T HAVE

THIS.

AND HE SAID, I HAVE IT.

AND I SAID, OKAY, GOD, IF

YOU HAVE IT, I'M GOING FOR

IT.

AND ALL OF THEM -- THREE

WHEELCHAIRS AND A COUPLE

OF WALKERS AND CRUTCHES

ALL WALKED.

AND JOHN HAD JUST COME

BACK FROM MEXICO --

YEAH.

-- AND HE HAD SEEN

AMAZING THINGS.

WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME

IN MEXICO.

IT JUST BLEW UP.

WE SAW ABOUT A THOUSAND

PEOPLE COME TO THE LORD,

AND AT LEAST THAT MANY

HEALINGS.

AND PEOPLE UNDER THE POWER

ALL OVER THE PLACE.

ESPECIALLY PASTORS.

THE PASTORS' MEETINGS WERE

JUST ELECTRIC.

Wendy: IS THIS NEW

EVEN TO YOU ALL, OR HAVE

YOU SEEN THIS LEVEL OF

SUCCESS --

NOT IN A WHILE.

NOT THE KIND OF

WHEELCHAIRS CONSISTENTLY,

AND NOT THE KIND OF

NUMBERS OF MIRACLES.

Wendy: WHAT DID YOU

SEE IN MEXICO?

OH, N OH, MY GOODNESS.

THERE ONE MAN, BEFORE WE

EVEN GOT PREACHING, HE

CAME WALKING DOWN THE

AISLE CRYING AND SAYING, I

CAN HEAR.

I CAN HEAR.

AND HERE THIS GUY HAD BEEN

DEAF FOR 12 YEARS.

AND HE JUST GOT HEALED IN

THE WORSHIP.

AND IT WAS AN AMAZING

THING.

IT JUST KIND OF SHOCKED US

ALL.

AND WE THOUGHT, WAIT A

MINUTE, WE HAVEN'T EVEN

GOTTEN GOING YET, AND HE

DID THAT WITHOUT US.

Wendy: AND THAT'S SO

GREAT.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PRAYING

FOR REVIVAL FOR SO MANY

YEARS, AND TO HEAR YOU ALL

SAY IT, AND YOU'RE SO

WELL-RESPECTED IN THE

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY, THAT

IT IS COMING, BUT WE'VE

GOT TO PLAY OUR PART.

WE DO.

Wendy: JOHN'S BOOK IS

CALLED "PREPARING FOR THE

GLORY."

TO HEAR MORE FROM THEM

ABOUT THIS COMING REVIVAL,

GO TO THEIR Facebook

PAGE AND GO TO

Facebook.com/700club FOR

MORE.

> WE WANT TO LEAVE YOU

WITH THIS WORD FROM

EPHESIANS 5: "WALK IN

LOVE AS CHRIST ALSO HAS

LOVED US AND GIVEN HIMSELF

FOR US."

JOHN AND CAROL ARNOTT, WE

LOVE YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO

YOU.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

TO YOU AND TO OUR

AUDIENCE.
