Gordon: A MOM WITH A

METH ADDICTION.

AND I SAID, I'M JUST

NEVER GOING TO COME DOWN,

AND THAT'S WHAT I DID.

Gordon: SEE HOW SHE

BROKE HER EIGHT-YEAR

HABIT.

I FELT LIKE I WAS GOING

TO BE OKAY.

Gordon: PLUS,

FOUNDING PASTORS OF "CATCH

THE FIRE," CAROL AND JOHN

ARNOTT SHARE HOW YOU CAN

PREPARE FOR THE NEXT WAVE

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

I THINK IN THESE DAYS

THAT WE'RE ENTERING INTO,

WE NEED TO LEARN, HEAR HIS

VOICE, AND OBEY IT

IMMEDIATELY.

Gordon: ALL ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

HERE IS EFREM GRAHAM WITH

THIS WEEK'S TOP FIVE

STORIES FROM "STUDIO 5."

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FIVE...

>FIVE...

* IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN

THIS NEIGHBORHOOD *

Efrem: FRED ROGERS'

LIFE HEADS TO THE BIG

SCREEN IN "YOU ARE MY

FRIEND," AND ACTOR TOM

HANKS WILL PLAY

MR. ROGERS.

DID YOU EVER WONDER HOW

TRAINS WERE MADE?

Efrem: THE FILM IS

BASED ON THE FRIENDSHIP

BETWEEN THE HOST AND THE

JOURNALIST TOM JERNOD, WHO

WAS REQUIRED TO WRITE

ABOUT HIM IN 1998.

A LOT OF PEOPLE TAKE

THOSE BOXES TO THE STORES,

WHETHER OTHER PEOPLE COME

TO BUY THEM.

* WON'T YOU PLEASE --

PLEASE WON'T YOU BE MY

NEIGHBOR *

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FOUR...17 YEAR17-YEAR-OLD CHLOE

KIM DELIVERED AT THE HALF

PIKE.

SHE SET THE BAR EXTREMELY

HIGH AT HER FIRST RUN.

THE WINTER GAMES ARE UNDER

WAY, AND SNOWBOARDER KELLY

CLARK HAS TWEETED, LOVER

OF COFFEE, GOD, AND GOOD

TIMES.

ELENA MYERS TAYLOR SAYS

SHE SEES HERSELF AS NOT

JUST REPRESENTING HERSELF

AND COUNTRY, BUT ALSO

CHRIST AND WHAT HE HAS

DONE THROUGH ME.

HER HUSBAND, NICK TAYLOR,

IS ALSO COMPETING.

HE SURVIVED IN 2005, THREE

SEPARATE CAR ACCIDENTS.

DAVID WEISS MADE HISTORY

IN 2014 AS THE FIRST EVER

OLYMPIC CHAMPION IN MEN'S

SKIING HALF PIKE, AND HE

CALLS HIMSELF, QUOTE, "A

FAITH FOLLOWER," WHO'S

FAITH PLAYS A HUGE ROLE IN

HIS CONFIDENCE.

AND THIS WOMAN SHARES, "A

SMILE ON MY FACE DOESN'T

MEAN MY LIFE IS PERFECT.

IT MEANS I APPRECIATE WHAT

I HAVE AND WHAT GOD HAS

BLESSED WITH ME."

> AT NUMBER THREE...

ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO, I

LOST MY WIFE TO A BRAIN

ANEURYSM.

Efrem: FORMER NFL

PLAYER TOMMY HARRIS

DELIVERS A BRAVE AND

HONEST AND INSPIRATIONAL

MESSAGE AT THIS YEAR'S

SUPER BOWL GOSPEL EVENT.

AND I WAS SITTING THERE

IN THE AUDIENCE, I WAS

ONLY MARRIED FOR 30 DAYS

AT THAT MOMENT, AND I

DIDN'T KNOW 11 DAYS LATER

I WOULD LOSE MY LIFE.

MY JOB IS TO GO AND TELL

EVERYONE WHO IS LIVING TO

MAKE LIFE COUNT.

MAKE IT COUNT!

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU

TOOK A BIG, DEEP BREATHE,

AND AS I PULLED MY WIFE'S

MONITOR OFF AND SHE TOOK

HER LAST BREATH -- TAKE A

DEEP ONE -- AS LONG AS YOU

HAVE THAT IN YOUR BODY,

YOU HAVE THAT AT ANY

MOMENT I HAVE TIME ON THE

CLOCK.

I CAN COME BACK AT ANY

MOMENT.

I KNOW THINGS HAPPEN IN MY

LIFE, BUT I CAN MAKE A

CHANGE AT ANY TIME.

I CAME HERE TO TELL YOU

THAT ALL OF YOU WHO ARE

GOING THROUGH A DIFFICULT

TIME, THAT TROUBLE DON'T

LAST ALWAYS.

I NEVER SEEN A CLOUD SIT

OVER A PERSON'S HOUSE FOR

A LONG TIME.

THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS.

Efrem: AT NUMBER TWO

AND PROBABLY NO

SURPRISE...

MARVEL'S "BLACK PANTHER

"WILL EXPLODE INTO

THEATERS THIS WEEK.

IT DEALS WITH REAL-WORLD

PROBLEMS, INCLUDING RACE

AND SLAVERY, AND THAT'S

SOMETHING THE DIRECTOR

SAID WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO

HIM.

WE WANTED THE MORAL

QUESTIONS TO BE ONES THAT

AREN'T AS EASY AS BLACK

AND WHITE, BUT ONE THEY ARE

ONES THAT ARE RELEVANT

TODAY.

IT HITS THEATERS

THURSDAY NIGHT.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

ONE...A "STUDIO 5"

EXCLUSIVE.

* I KNOW MY REDEEMER

LIVES *

Efrem: GOSPEL SINGER

NICOLE C. MULLEN OPENS UP

ABOUT HER RELATIONSHIP

WITH FELLOW PASTOR SINGER

AND PASTOR DONNIE

McCLURKIN.

Efrem: HE IS SINGLE

AND YOU'RE SINGLE, IS

THERE SOMETHING HAPPENING

YOU CAN SHARE?

WELL, YES, WE ARE IN A

RELATIONSHIP.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, HE HAS

REALLY BEEN A GOD-SEND,

DONNIE McCLURKIN.

Efrem: YES.

YEARS AGO, AFTER I HAD

GONE THROUGH A NIGHT

SEASON, AND I HAD GOTTEN

TO A POINT OF, OKAY, LORD,

I AM -- I'M NOT REALLY

GUSHING WITH BLOOD ANYMORE

OVER THE WOUND OF WHAT

HAPPENED -- IT'S MORE OF A

SCAR.

BUT I'M DEFINITELY NOT

INTERESTED IN BEING IN

ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP.

I'M GOOD.

ME AND JESUS ARE GOOD.

YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?

AND THEN I FOUND MYSELF ON

A FLIGHT, SITTING NEXT TO

DONNIE McCLURKIN FOR

NINE HOURS.

BOTH OF US WERE GOING TO

THE IVORY COAST, SINGING

AT THE SAME CONCERT.

AND WE WOUND OUT HAVING A

GREAT CONVERSATION, AND MY

HEART BEGAN TO CRACK OPEN.

WE'VE BEEN ON A JOURNEY

EVER SINCE.

THE LORD IS REDEEMING MY

LIFE.

AND I BELIEVE HE HAS A

GREAT PURPOSE FOR US.

BUT YOU'VE GOT TO HEAR IT

FROM HIM.

BUT IN THE MEANTIME, WE'RE

ON A JOURNEY.

WE'RE ON A GREAT JOURNEY.

AND MY FAMILY LOVES HIM.

HE WAS ABLE TO MEET MY DAD

BEFORE MY DAD PASSED AWAY.

AND MY DAD WAS ABLE TO

PRAY OVER US.

MY MOM LOVES HIM.

MY KIDS LOVE HIM.

AND, YEAH -- OKAY.

[LAUGHTER]

YOU DIDN'T HEAR ME SAY

IT.

Gordon: IT TOOK HER A

LONG TIME TO ADMIT THAT.

SHE HAD TO GO THROUGH

EVERYBODY ELSE.

Efrem: SHE LOVES HIM,

TOO.

WE'RE ALL JUST NOW WAITING

FOR THE PROPOSAL BECAUSE

IT IS ALL ON PASTOR DONNIE

McCLURKIN.

Gordon: NO PRESSURE.

NO PRESSURE AT ALL,

DONNIE.

THE EYES OF THE WORLD ARE

LOOKING AT YOU.

AND THE LESSON IS, DON'T

TAKE A LONG FLIGHT.

Efrem: THE NINE HOUR

FLIGHT DID IT.

[LAUGHTER]

Gordon: YOU GOT A

LITTLE TOO CLOSE.

> ALL RIGHT, "BLACK

PANTHER" IS COMING OUT.

AND DO YOU THINK THIS IS

GOING TO BE A LANDMARK

MOVIE?

Efrem: I THINK IT

WILL BE.

I HAD THE HONOR OF SEEING

IT A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO

AND SPEAKING WITH THE

CAST, FROM ANGELA

BASSETT --

Gordon: AND YOU

COULDN'T GET ME IN?

[LAUGHTER]

Efrem: THIS IS

FUNNY --

Gordon: IT'S NOT

FUNNY.

THIS IS NOT FUNNY.

Efrem: I RARELY BEG

STUDIO FOLKS TO INVITE ME

TO A PREMIERE.

BUT I DID BEG EVERYONE.

AND WE GOT THE DISNEY

INVITE A FEW DAYS BEFORE

THAT, AND IT IS REALLY,

REALLY WELL-DONE.

Gordon: UH-HUH.

UH-HUH.

UH-HUH.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE ROOM FOR

ME?

Efrem: IT'S SO GOOD.

Gordon: YOU'RE JUST

TRYING TO GLOSS OVER THIS.

Efrem: I WILL SAY

THIS --

Gordon: THIS CLOUD IS

GOING TO HANG OVER YOU --

THIS, TOO, WILL NOT PASS.

THIS IS GOING TO HANG.

Efrem: BECAUSE I'M IN

THE DOGHOUSE WITH MY SON

AS WELL BECAUSE HE WANTS

TO SEE IT.

BUT THE OTHER BEAUTIFUL

THING --

Gordon: I CAN

UNDERSTAND YOU NOT TAKING

ME, BUT YOUR SON?

Efrem: I KNOW.

IT WAS AN L.A. TRIP AND

WORK -- BUT, ANYWAY.

IT IS ALSO A BEAUTIFUL

FILM FOR YOUNG GIRLS TO

SEE BECAUSE IT CELEBRATES

WOMEN IN THIS FILM AS

WELL.

THE MILITARY IN CONGO

ISN'T AT ALL LIKE A

WOMEN'S MILITARY.

THE STORY IS GREAT.

RYAN CUGALOR, THIS IS ONLY

HIS THIRD FILM.

HE SAID HE DIDN'T THINK HE

WAS READY FOR THIS.

HE MADE SEVERAL TRIPS TO

AFRICA TO EXPLORE AND SEE

WHAT TO BRING FROM THE

MOTHERLAND TO THE FILM.

AND EVERYONE WHO IS IN IT

GAVE PRAISE TO HIM, FROM

THE SCRIPT WRITING TO HIS

CHOICES.

I THINK IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

Gordon: HAVING SEEN

THE FILM, WHAT DO YOU

THINK THE TAKE-AWAY IS?

Efrem: WOW, I THINK

THE TAKE-AWAY IS TO NOT

UNDERESTIMATE PEOPLE WHO

DON'T NECESSARILY, IN YOUR

EYES, MEASURE UP, WHO YOU

DON'T THINK ARE BIG

ENOUGH, QUALIFIED,

KNOWLEDGEABLE ENOUGH,

BECAUSE THE KING QUESTIONS

WHETHER OR NOT HE CAN RISE

AND STEP INTO HIS FATHER'S

FOOTSTEPS, BUT HE LEARNS

THE LESSONS FROM HIS

FATHER'S MISTAKES, AND HE

DOES RISE TO DO THAT.

AND THIS COUNTRY IS A

FICTIONAL COUNTRY, BUT IT

IS SUPPOSEDLY AN UNKNOWN

COUNTRY.

AND NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE

KNOW ABOUT WACONDA.

AND THEY ASK, WHAT CAN A

THIRD WORLD COUNTRY TEACH

THOSE OF US WHO ARE SO

MORE ADVANCED?

AND THIS FILM TEACHES YOU

THAT EVERYONE IS WORTH

SOMETHING AND EVERYONE CAN

TAKE SOMEONE SOMETHING.

Gordon: I HOPE IT IS

REALLY EMPOWERING TO

PEOPLE.

Efrem: I HOPE SO,

TOO.

THAT IS THE HOPE OF

EVERYONE IN THE CAST.

THAT IS THEIR THEIR

BELIEF.

ONE YEAR GIRL, HER NAME IS

LATICIA WRIGHT -- MARK MY

WORDS, YOU'LL HEAR FROM

THIS GIRL AGAIN -- THAT

THIS MOVIE WAS AN ANSWER

TO PRAYER FOR HER.

IT HAS BEEN HER PRAYER TO

HAVE ROLES THAT INSPIRE

AND LIFT PEOPLE UP,

BECAUSE SHE WAS INSPIRED

TO BECOME AN ACTRESS BY

SEEING ANGELA BASSETT IN

"AKILLA AND THE BEE," AND

HERE SHE IS PLAYING HER

DAUGHTER.

SHE SAID, THIS WAS MY

PRAYER AND GOD ANSWERED

IT.

Gordon: AND A

GENERATIONAL MOMENT.

IT IS ONE FOR OUR

GENERATION TO REALIZE,

HERE WE ARE 50 YEARS

LATER, AND WE ARE ON THE

ANNIVERSARY OF MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR.'S DEATH.

CHECK OUT EFREM'S

WEEKLY SHOW AT

cbn.com/studio5.

> UP NEXT, A MOM LOSES

HER CHILDREN BECAUSE OF

HER DRUG HABIT AND TURNS

TO MORE DRUGS TO COPE.

I STARTED DOING METH

EVERY DAY.

IT KEPT ME HIGH, AND I

DIDN'T CRY OVER MY

CHILDREN EVERY DAY.

Gordon: HEAR HOW SHE

BROKE THE CYCLE OF

ADDICTION ONCE AND FOR

ALL, WHEN WE COME BACK.

Gordon: TARA WAS JUST

12 YEARS OLD WHEN HER

WORLD WAS SHATTERED.

WITHIN A FEW YEARS SHE WAS

A RUN-AWAY DRUG ADDICT WHO

HAD SPENT TIME IN A MENTAL

HOSPITAL.

Reporter: TARA

BARFIELD WAS FIVE YEARS

OLD WHEN SHE FOUND HER

FATHER ON THE LIVING ROOM

FLOOR, DEAD FROM A

SELF-INFLICTED GUNSHOT

WOUND.

I STARTED TRYING TO

LOOK BACK AND SEE WHY THIS

WOULD HAPPEN.

WAS I LIVING A DELUSIONAL

LIFE THINKING WE WERE A

HAPPY FAMILY?

BECAUSE, I MEAN, WE HAD

FUN TOGETHER.

WE DID STUFF, WE LAUGHED,

AND WE HAD A GOOD TIME.

I QUESTIONED HIS LOVE FOR

ME AND JUST FOR ALL OF US.

I MEAN, IT DESTROYED OUR

FAMILY.

HE DEPUT DIDN'T JUST TAKE MY DAD

AWAY; HE DESTROYED WHO MY

MOM WAS.

Reporter: HER MOTHER

BECAME WITHDRAWN AND

DISTANT.

AND TARA WAS LEFT TO FACE

HER OWN BROKENNESS ALONE

AS SHE ENTERED HER TEEN

YEARS.

I JUST FELT SO SAD FOR

HER.

I NEVER REALLY WAS ANGRY

AT HER.

I NEEDED SOMEBODY TO PAY

ATTENTION, SOMEBODY TO

CARE ABOUT ME.

I GUESS I WANTED SOMEBODY

WE COULD LAUGH AND SMILE

AGAIN BECAUSE IT WAS SO

SAD.

Reporter: TARA BECAME

SEXUALLY ACTIVE AND

STARTED EXPERIMENTING WITH

DRUGS.

THEN AT 15, SHE RAN AWAY

AND STARTED LIVING WITH A

GUY WHO PROVIDED HER WITH

COCAINE IN RETURN FOR SEX.

I WAS GETTING DRUGS AND

I WAS GETTING ATTENTION.

THAT'S WHAT I LIKED ABOUT

IT, BECAUSE ALL OF MY HURT

AND PAIN WAS NUMBED.

I DIDN'T FEEL ANY SADNESS

OR HURT.

Reporter: TARA WAS

EVENTUALLY PICKED UP BY

POLICE.

SHE WAS SENT TO A MENTAL

HOSPITAL, WHERE SHE GOT

CLEAN AND WAS THEN SENT

HOME.

BUT THE ANGER AND

BITTERNESS SHE HAD FOR HER

FATHER WOULD PLAGUE HER

FOR YEARS TO COME.

BY THE TIME SHE WAS 25,

SHE HAD BEEN MARRIED,

DIVORCED, AND LOST CUSTODY

OF HER TWO CHILDREN.

I WAS JUST SO

DISTRAUGHT, SO

HEARTBROKEN.

AND, LIKE, MY WHOLE LIFE

IS OVER.

WITHOUT MY KIDS, I CAN'T

EVEN LIVE.

Reporter: SHE STARTED

USING METH TO COPE, AND IT

SOON BECAME AN ADDICTION

THAT WOULD LAST EIGHT

YEARS.

THE DEPRESSION WOULD

GET SO BAD, EVERY TIME I

WOULD COME DOWN, I JUST

MISSED MY KIDS.

I WOULD GET SO DEPRESSED,

FINALLY I WAS, LIKE, I

CAN'T KEEP LIVING LIKE

THIS.

I SED SAID, I'M JUST NEVER

GOING TO COME DOWN, AND

THAT'S WHAT I DID.

I STAYED HIGH.

I DID METH EVERY DAY AND

IT KEPT ME HIGH, AND I

DIDN'T CRY OVER MY

CHILDREN EVERY DAY.

Reporter: DURING THIS

TIME, SHE HAD A THIRD

CHILD, A DAUGHTER.

BUT BECAUSE TARA WAS IN

JAIL SO OFTEN FOR

DRUG-RELATED CHARGES, HER

MOM TOOK CUSTODY OF HER

DAUGHTER.

IT WAS THEN SHE WAS LOCKED

UP AND STARTED THE LONG

PROCESS OF WITHDRAWAL.

I WENT THROUGH A LOT OF

WITHDRAWALS.

A LOT OF SICKNESS, A LOT

OF PAIN.

AND THEN THE EMOTIONS CAME

THROUGH, ALL OF THE

EMOTIONS THAT I HAD NEVER

DEALT WITH.

AND THAT'S WHEN SOMEONE

GAVE ME A BIBLE.

SHE BEGAN TO TELL ME IT

DIDN'T MATTER WHO I WAS OR

THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE,

THAT GOD STILL LOVED ME.

AND I READ THAT SALVATION

PRAYER, AND THEN I READ IT

AGAIN, AND I WAS, LIKE, I

DON'T FEEL DIFFERENT.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF IT WA IT WAS A

MAGIC POSSESSIO POTION OR SOMETHING,

BUT I DIDN'T FEEL ANY

DIFFERENT.

BUT I KEPT THE BIBLE.

Reporter: AFTER HER

RELEASE, TARA CONTINUED

READING THE BIBLE AND GOT

INVOLVED IN A CHURCH, BUT

SHE STILL COULDN'T FORGIVE

HER FATHERMENT.

FATHER.

AND I OPENED IT AGAIN,

AND I SAW THE WORD

"FORGIVENESS" IN THERE,

AND I HAD SO MUCH

UNFORGIVENESS AND SO MUCH

PAIN IN MY LIFE AND IN MY

HEART.

THAT WAS THE FIRST WORD

THAT REALLY MEANT

SOMETHING TO ME IN THE

BIBLE.

I OPENED IT AND IT SAID

"FORGIVENESS."

AND I KNEW THEN I HAVE GOT

TO GET THROUGH SOME

THINGS.

Reporter: A MONTH

LATER SHE WAS BACK IN

COURT AND SENTENCED TO 10

YEARS FOR PAROLE

VIOLATION.

THEN DURING A FOUR-DAY

LOCKDOWN, TARA TOLD HER

CELL MATE, A CHRISTIAN,

ABOUT HER LIFE.

HER FRIEND HELPED HER

REALIZE THE ONLY WAY TO

HEALING WAS TO FORGIVE HER

DAD.

I WAS NEVER GOING TO BE

ABLE TO GET TO WHERE I

NEEDED TO BE AS LONG AS I

WAS HOLDING ON TO ALL OF

THAT PAIN.

AND WE JUST PRAYED AND

PRAYED AND PRAYED.

IT WAS THE PRAYER THAT

SAVED ME.

IT WAS MY SALVATION

PRAYER.

IT WAS THE PRAYER THAT

RELEASED ME FROM ALL OF

THE TRAPS AND BONDAGES OF

EVERYTHING I HAD BEEN IN

FOR SO LONG.

TO WHERE I FELT LIKE I WAS

GOING TO BE OKAY.

I FELT LIGHTER.

I FELT -- I FELT SOME JOY,

SOME ACTUAL JOY, IN

PRISON.

Reporter: TARA'S

SENTENCE WAS REDUCED FOR

GOOD BEHAVIOR, AND SHE

SERVED ONLY SIX MONTHS.

SHE RECONCILED WITH TWO OF

HER CHILDREN AND WENT TO

WORK FOR A LAW FIRM.

TODAY SHE IS A PARALEGAL

AND LOVES CHEERING ON HER

DAUGHTER'S BASKETBALL

TEAM.

I'M NEW.

I'VE BEEN MADE NEW IN HIM.

I'M NOT WHO I USED TO BE.

AND I LOVE WHO I AM NOW.

AND I LOVE WHO GOD WANTS

ME TO BE BECAUSE HE'S NOT

FINISHED.

Gordon: YOU SEE THE

JOY IN TARA'S FACE, THE

COMPLETE CHANGE.

AND THAT COMPLETE CHANGE

CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

I LOVE TO TELL PEOPLE, YOU

CAN NEVER BEEN TOO DEAD

FOR A RESURRECTION.

DON'T THINK IT'S TOO LONG,

TOO FAR, YOU'VE DONE TOO

MUCH, THE SITUATION IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

REALIZE WITH GOD, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

IF YOU NEED HELP, IF YOU

NEED PRAYER, IF YOU WANT

TO FIND THE GOD WHO CAN

INNERMOST BEING, SET YOU

IT IS ADDICTION,

> STILL TO COME, THE

FOUNDING PASTORS OF "CATCH

THE FIRE," JOHN AND CAROL

ARNOTT SAY A FRESH MOVE OF

GOD IS ON THE HORIZON AND

SHARE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO

GET READY.

THEY JOIN US NEXT, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

Gordon: MORE THAN 20

YEARS AGO, CANADA

EXPERIENCED THE TORONTO

BLESSING, A GREAT REVIVAL

THAT SWEPT THROUGHOUT THE

WORLD.

PASTORS JOHN AND CAROL

ARNOTT BELIEVE THAT WILL

PALE IN COMPAR COMPARISON TO WHAT

IS COMING NEXT.

Reporter: JOHN AND

CAROL ARNOTT ARE BEST

KNOWN FOR THEIR REVIVAL

MINISTRY, WHICH BEGAN WITH

THE TORONTO BLESSING IN

1994.

NOW, MORE THAN 20 YEARS

LATER, THEY SAY A HOLY

TSUNAMI IS ON THE HORIZON.

I THINK IN THESE DAYS

THAT WE ARE 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.

Gordon: WELL, JOHN

AND CAROL, IT'S GREAT TO

HAVE YOU BACK WITH US.

THANKS, GORDON.

Gordon: IT IS SO

AWESOME TO HAVE YOU ON

CAMPUS.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE CHAPEL

TOGETHER.

IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.

> YOU HAD A DREAM?

I DID, GORDON.

Gordon: AND IT WAS

BACK IN 2013, 2014?

YEAH, THAT TIMEFRAME.

Gordon: OKAY.

WHAT WAS THE DREAM?

THE DREAM WAS -- GO

BACK QUICKLY.

MICHAEL WAS SUPPOSED TO

COME DOWN, MOTHER'S DAY,

JOHN'S AWAY, AND I WASN'T

FEELING GOOD, AND I SAID

TO THE LORD -- MIKE PHONED

AND SAID HE HAD TO WORK,

SO I WAS DISCOURAGED.

I SAID, GOD, IF YOU WANT

ME TO GO TO CHURCH, YOU

WAKE ME UP.

THAT'S NOT REALLY WHAT YOU

WANT TO DO.

ANY WAY, I WOKE UP AND

LOOKED AT THE CLOCK AND IT

WAS 9:45, AND I THOUGHT, I

MISSED CHURCH, BUT I'VE

GOT TO WRITE THIS DOWN.

SO I SLIPPED OUT OF BED,

AND AS MY FOOT TOUCHED THE

FLOOR, THE AUDIBLE VOICE

OF GOD WAS IN THE ROOM.

AND HE SAID, CAROL, GET

OUT OF BED.

GET IN THE SHOWER, GET

YOUR HAIR DONE, GET YOUR

MAKEUP SON, GET DRESSED,

GET SOMETHING TO EAT, AND

GET DOWN TO THE CHURCH

IMMEDIATELY.

WELL, YOU NEVER SEE ME

MOVE SO FAST IN YOUR

ENTIRE LIFE.

I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO

SEE THAT.

Gordon: SEE WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU TRAVEL?

[LAUGHTER]

SO I WANTED TO TAPE IT,

AND I'M NOT SO TECHIE, SO

I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT

THE RECORDER BUTTON ON MY

PHONE.

AND I PRAYING THAT THE

POLICEMAN WON'T KNOW I'M

SPEEDING AND WOULDN'T

CATCH ME --

Gordon: AND YOU

DIDN'T GET CAUGHT?

I DIDN'T GET CAUGHT AND

I GOT TO THE CHURCH.

AND I GOT IN, AND I SAID,

I'LL SIT AT THE BACK.

AND HE SAID, NO, GO SIT

WITH THE WORSHIP TEAM.

AND THEN HE SAID, NO, GO

SIT IN YOUR SEAT.

AND I SAID, BUT, LORD,

THERE WILL BE SOMEBODY IN

IT.

AND HE SAID, WELL, THEN

TELL THEM TO MOVE.

I SAID, OKAY.

SO I ROUNDED THE CORNER,

AND THERE WAS SOMEBODY

THERE, AND THEY MOVED.

AND I SAT IN THE CHAIR AND

I SAID, OH, GOD, NOW WHAT?

ARE WE DOING THE VISION --

THE DREAM TONIGHT?

TODAY?

AND HE SAID, NO, THIS WAS

A TEST OF YOUR OBEDIENCE.

THE DREAM IS COMING.

AND THE DREAM WAS I WAS IN

THE CHURCH, WORSHIPPING AT

THE FRONT, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN I GOT CAUGHT UP IN

A WORLD-WIND, AND I LOOKED

AT THE CEILING AND I

THOUGHT, AM I GOING UP TO

THE CEILING, LORD?

AND I GOT TO THE TOP OF

OUR CHURCH CEILING, AND I

CAME DOWN, AND IT WAS,

LIKE, I DON'T KNOW,

GORDON, SOMETHING EITHER

CAME ON ME OR OFF OR BOTH.

BECAUSE I WENT AAHHH.

AND I GRABBED THE

MICROPHONE, AND I SAID TO

THE CHURCH, LOOK, I SAID,

THERE IS A NEW WAVE OF THE

LORD COMING DOWN, THE

GLORY IS COMING DOWN AGAIN

IN A NEW WAY.

AND THIS TIME IT IS GOING

TO BE THE FEAR OF THE LORD

BASED ON HIS INCREDIBLE

LOVE FOR US.

NOT AN OUTWARD PERFORMANCE

FEAR, BUT AN AWESOME

REVERENCE OF HIS HOLINESS

AND HIS INTEGRITY.

AND I SAID, AND HE'S

SAYING TO THE CHURCH,

THERE IS A LOT OF YOU THAT

ARE GOING ON THE HYPER

GRACE.

YOU'RE SAYING, OKAY, I

WILL -- I WILL DO WHAT YOU

SAY, LORD, BUT LATER.

I WILL PRAY, BUT LATER.

I WILL BE OBEDIENT, BUT

LATER.

WELL, I CAN DO THIS LITTLE

SIN AND GOD WILL FORGIVE

ME BECAUSE HE IS SO FULL

OF LOVE AND MERCY.

AND I SAID, WHEN THIS

GLORY CLOUD COMES DOWN,

THERE IS GOING TO BE NONE

OF THAT.

AND I SAID, IF YOU DON'T

WANT TO GET YOUR HEARTS

RIGHT AND COMMIT YOUR

HEART TO THE LORD -- IT

DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE NEVER

GOING TO SIN AGAIN, BUT --

AND I SAID -- AND THEN I

LOOKED UP IN THE DREAM,

AND I SAID, OH, MY GOSH,

THE CLOUD IS COMING DOWN.

THOSE OF YOU WHO WANT TO

REPENT, THE MERCY SEAT IS

OPEN.

THOSE WHO DON'T WANT TO,

GET OUT OF HERE.

GET OUT NOW BECAUSE I

DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL

HAPPEN TO YOU.

AND PEOPLE JUST SCATTERED

IN THE CHURCH.

AND THEN I SAW AT THE BACK

OF THE CHURCH, THERE WERE

BLEACHERS.

AND I SAID, LORD, WE DON'T

HAVE BLEACHERS.

BUT THERE WERE TWO GUYS

DRESSED IN SMART SUITS,

TIES, AND THEY HAD, LIKE,

SLICK HAIR.

AND THEY WERE KIND OF

GOING LIKE THIS, AND

MOCKING.

AND THE LORD SAID, GO BACK

TO THEM.

SO I MADE MY WAY BACK.

AND I GOT CLOSE TO THEM.

LIKE FROM, I DON'T KNOW,

MAYBE HERE TO THERE.

AND THEY FELL OFF THE

BLEACHERS, THE TOP OF THE

BLEACHERS.

AND THEY WERE LIKE -- THEY

DIDN'T MOVE.

AND I SAID, OH, MY GOSH,

HAVE THEY DIED?

AND I WENT TO GO AND SEE,

AND THE LORD SAID, NEVER

MIND THEM.

GO TO THE FRONT DOOR.

I HAVE A YOUNG MAN THERE

THAT I WANT YOU TO GIVE A

PROPHETIC WORD TO.

SO I WENT OVER, AND THIS

GUY IS RUNNING HALF WAY UP

UNDER THE FLAGS AND THEN

BACK.

AND WHEN I GOT THERE, I

SAID, SIR, GOD HAS A WORD

FOR YOU.

HE HAS GIVEN YOU A

POWERFUL ANOINTING.

AND IT'S WITHOUT

REPENTANCE, BUT RIGHT NOW

YOU'RE IN SECRET SIN WITH

YOUR SECRETARY, BUT IF YOU

WILL REPENT, AND REALLY

REPENT, AND GO TO THE

FRONT, HE WILL RESTORE

YOU.

BUT IF YOU WALK OUT THAT

DOOR, I FEAR YOU'LL BECOME

LIKE LOTT'S WIFE, AND I

WOKE UP.

Gordon: I BET YOU

DID.

THAT'S AN AWESOME WORD.

I NEVER HAD A DREAM

LIKE THAT BEFORE.

Gordon: YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE BEING

TAKEN OUT DEAD --

I KNOW.

AND SO, LIKE, I REALLY

FEEL THAT WE'VE BEEN

PRAYING FOR THIS MASSIVE

REVIVAL TO COME.

AND WE'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR

THE DEAD TO RISE, THE SICK

TO BE HEALED, THE

WHEELCHAIRS -- EVERYTHING.

AND A GREAT HARVEST TO

COME IN.

AND I FEEL THAT THAT DREAM

SIGNIFIED IF WE REALLY

WANT THAT, THEN WE AS A

CHURCH NEED TO BECOME

LOVING, OBEDIENT, REVERENT

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD.

Gordon: YEAH.

THAT WILL HEAR HIS

VOICE AND BE OBEDIENT.

Gordon: YEAH.

THAT'S SOMETHING I'VE

HEARD FROM BOTH OF YOU

THROUGH THE YEARS, WE

REALLY NEED TO PROTECT THE

ANOINTING.

WE DO.

Gordon: WE NEED TO

HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE THE

ANOINTING.

AND FOR US, PERSONALLY, WE

NEED TO PROTECT IT.

IT CAN'T BE CASUAL.

SO THAT'S THE DREAM --

Gordon: SO THIS

PREPARING FOR THE GLORY

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT --

WE'VE REALLY GOT TO GET

SERIOUS WITH GOD.

YES, WE DO.

Gordon: PLAY TIME IS

OVER.

YUP.

I THINK WE'LL STILL -- THE

HOLY SPIRIT WILL STILL

HAVE FUN AND JOY AND

ALL --

Gordon: BUT I CAN'T

IMAGINE A SECRET SIN.

> WE'VE GOT EIGHT

SECONDS, SO I'VE GOT TO

GO.

IF YOU WANT MORE, THE BOOK

IS "PREPARING FOR THE

GLORY," IT IS AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD.

THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

GOD BLESS YOU.
