A woman is haunted by darkness and paranormal activity, until she is delivered from demonic spirits. Read Transcript


I ALWAYS FELT THERE WAS

SOMETHING THERE.

Gordon: A WOMAN

BREAKS A DEMONIC

STRONG-HOLD OVER HER

HOUSE, ONCE AND FOR ALL.

I JUST KNEW THIS IS

SOMETHING BIG.

AND IT WAS SUPER NATURAL.

Gordon: PLUS ROMA

DOWNEY TAKES US INSIDE HER

NEW DIGITAL PROJECT,

"LIGHT WORKERS."

I WANTED TO CREATE A

GATHERING PLACE FOR

INSPIRATIONAL AND POSITIVE

CONTENT.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

BILLY GRAHAM WILL FINISH

THE SAME WAY HE STARTED,

UNDER A LARGE, WHITE TENT

IN FRONT OF OF THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE.

Terry: GRAHAM'S

PRIVATE FUNERAL SERVICE

WILL BE HELD THIS FRIDAY,

THE 2nd, AT NOON, SET UP

NEAR THE BILLY GRAHAM

LIBRARY IN CHARLOTTE,

NORTH CAROLINA.

HE WILL LIE IN STATE AT

THE LIBRARY.

THE PUBLIC CAN PAY THEIR

RESPECTS FROM 8 a.m. TO

10 p.m.

Gordon: HIS MINISTRY

TOUCHED PEOPLE FROM AROUND

THE WORLD.

HE REACHED OUT TO

EVERYBODY, AND WHEN HE

DID, LIVES WERE CHANGED

FOREVER.

WE BEGIN TODAY WITH THIS

LOOK AT HOW IT ALL BEGAN.

Reporter: WILLIAM

FRANKLIN GRAHAM WAS BORN

NOVEMBER 7, 1918, FOUR

DAYS BEFORE THE END OF

WORLD WAR I.

RAISED ON A DAIRY FARM

BEFORE THE DEPRESSION, HE

DEVELOPED A STRONG WORK

ETHIC.

THE REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM

HAS SHARED THE GOSPEL OF

JESUS CHRIST TO NEARLY

215 MILLION PEOPLE IN LIVE

AUDIENCES IN MORE THAN 185

COUNTRIES AND TERRITORIES.

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS MORE

HAVE BEEN REACHED THROUGH

RADIO, TELEVISION, FILM,

BOOKS, AND THE INTERNET.

BILLY GRAHAM GAINED HIS

PRIMARY EVANGELISTIC

EXPERIENCE ON RADIO, AND

THEN THROUGH "YOUTH FOR

CHRIST," AN ORGANIZATION

FOUNDED TO MINISTER TO

YOUNG PEOPLE AND

SERVICEMEN DURING WORLD

WAR II.

FOLLOWING THE WAR, GRAHAM

PREACHED THROUGHOUT THE

UNITED STATES AND EUROPE.

HIS MINISTRY WITH "YOUTH

FOR CHRIST" OPENED DOORS

FOR A SERIES OF

INTERDENOMINATIONAL

CITY-WIDCITY-WIDE COMPAIGNS IN THE

LATE '40s.

OUTSIDE THE PERSON OF

OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, LET

ME SAY AGAIN THERE ARE

PROBLEMS OF FEAR.

Reporter: BILLY

GRAHAM WAS NOT AFRAID TO

CONFRONT THE EVILS OF

SOCIETY.

HE JOINED MARTIN LUTHER

KING, JR. TO BATTLE

RACISM.

NEVER SAY IT IS A WHITE

MAN'S RELIGION OR A BLACK

MAN'S RELIGION.

CHRIST BELONGS TO ALL

PEOPLE.

HE BELONGS TO THE WHOLE

WORLD.

Reporter: DESPITE

SHARP CRITICISM, BILLY

GRAHAM ALSO TOOK THE

MESSAGE OF SALVATION

BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN.

HE EVEN WENT INTO NORTH

KOREA, ONE OF THE WORLD'S

MOST SECRETIVE REGIMES, TO

TALK ABOUT CHRIST WITH

THEIR LEADER, THE LATE KIM

IL-SUNG.

HE WAS NOT ASHAMED TO

SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH

PEOPLE IN POWER.

HE STAYED FOCUSED ON

TELLING MEN AND WOMEN

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

HIS MINISTRY, HIS LIFE,

EVERY SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT,

EVERY OPPORTUNITY WITH A

PRESIDENT OR A KING OR

WHOEVER, HE WOULD ALWAYS

GET THE CONVERSATION RIGHT

AROUND TO THE GOSPEL.

Reporter: HE WAS

KNOWN AS THE PASTOR TO THE

PRESIDENTS, A FRIEND OF 11

COMMANDERS IN CHIEF.

WHEN HE PRAYS WITH YOU,

YOU FEEL HE IS PRAYING FOR

YOU, NOT THE PRESIDENT.

THE HUMBLE FARMER'S SON

WHO HELPED CHANGE THE

WORLD IS A SPIRITUAL GIFT

TO ALL OF US.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: THE

EVANGELIST HELPED CHANGE

THE WORLD, AND THE WORLD

NOTICED.

SINCE 1955, BILLY GRAHAM

WAS LISTEDED A RECORD 54

TIMES BY THE GALLOP

ORGANIZATION AS ONE OF THE

10 MOST ADMIRED MEN IN THE

WORLD, INCLUDING 48 TIMES

CONSECUTIVELY, MORE THAN

ANY OTHER PERSON IN

HISTORY.

MY WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN

TO PLEASE THE LORD AND TO

HONOR JESUS, NOT TO SEE

ME, NOT TO THINK OF ME.

YOU COME RIGHT NOW,

QUICKLY.

WHILE EVERY HEAD IS BOWED

IN PRAYER, AND THE CHOIR

SINGS SOFTLY, JUST AS I

AM, HUNDREDS ARE ALREADY

COMING FROM EVERYWHERE.

YOU COME WITH THEM.

*

YOU OUT THERE TONIGHT

CAN GIVE YOUR LIFE TO

CHRIST.

JUST BOW YOUR HEAD AND SAY

YES, AND GIVE YOUR LIFE TO

CHRIST NOW.

Reporter: MARK

MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Terry: WOW, AN

AMAZING MAN WITH A

REMARKABLE MESSAGE.

AND MAYBE THE MOST

SIGNIFICANT THING

HIM IS THAT MESSAGE NEVER

CHANGED.

Gordon: AND HE BECAME

AND WAS THAT MESSAGE.

IT WASN'T JUST WORDS.

HE LIVED IT.

AND THE LIFE AS WELL.

Terry: WE MENTIONED

THAT HIS BODY IS LYING IN

REPOSE TODAY AND TOMORROW

IN NORTH CAROLINA, AND

THEN HE'LL LIE IN HONOR IN

THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL

ROTUNDA AND WEDNESDAY AND

THURSDAY.

QUITE AN HONOR.

QUITE A MAN.

> HERE IS ANOTHER MAN

WHO ISN'T SHY ABOUT

SHARING HIS FAITH, M.V.P.

QUARTERBACK NICK FOLES.

Gordon: WHEN THE

EAGLES MADE IT TO THE

"SUPERBOOK," THE VIDEO

STARTED GOING VIRAL.

NOW NEARLY SIX MILLION

PEOPLE HAVE WATCHED IT ON

Facebook, AND YOU GET TO

SEE IT NOW.

I GREW UP IN A

CHRISTIAN HOUSEHOLD.

AND MY MOM WAS A VERY

STRONG BELIEVER.

SO I KNEW BIBLE VERSES

GROWING UP.

I TRIED TO STAY AWAKE AND

COULDN'T BECAUSE IT WAS SO

BORING TO ME.

BUT I KNEW JESUS CHRIST

WAS.

I SORT OF LIVED MY FAITH

THROUGH MY MOTHER'S FAITH.

I REMEMBER I WAS SITTING

IN MY TRUCK AND I JUST

STARTED CRYING AND I JUST

STARTED PRAYING.

I WAS, LIKE, GOD , I DON'T

HAVE ANY STRENGTH, I DON'T

HAVE ANY CONFIDENCE.

I HAVE NO CLUE WHY I'M IN

MICHIGAN RIGHT NOW.

I'M A TEXAS BOY, AND I

DON'T KNOW WHY I'M HERE.

BUT I KNOW I'M HERE FOR A

PURPOSE.

BUT I TRUST YOU.

I BELIEVE IN YOUR SON, I

BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST,

AND I PRAY THAT YOU DO

YOUR WILL WITH ME.

WHEREVER I WENT, GOD

ALWAYS PLACED SOMEONE

THERE FOR ME TO HELP ME

GROW IN THE BIBLE

KNOWLEDGE, TO HELP ME GROW

AS A MAN, AND I LOOK AT

THAT MOMENT I GAVE MY LIFE

TO CHRIST AND EVERYTHING

CHANGED FOR ME.

Gordon: WONDERFUL

WORDS.

Terry: CLEAR, VERY

CLEAR.

Gordon: IF YOU HATE

WORKING OUT, LIKE ME, TAKE

A LESSON FROM THIS

93-YEAR-OLD GRANDMA, MAYBE

YOU JUST NEED TO SMILE

MORE.

Terry: HELENE MILLER

LAUGHS AND SMILES DURING

EVERY WORKOUT WITH HER

INSTRUCTOR, ELIZABETH

ZANNON.

ZANNON'S DAUGHTER POSTED

ONE OF THEIR VIDEOS, AND

IT WENT VIRAL.

OH, HAPPY DAY.

WATCH THIS.

*

*

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR,

FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR,

FIVE, SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT.

[LAUGHTER]

*

Terry: A MERRY HEART

DO IT GOOD LIKE A

MEDICINE.

Gordon: THAT'S A

WORKOUT I CAN DO.

Terry: THAT'S GREAT.

YOU'RE LAUGHING WITH HER.

HOW PRECIOUS SHE IS.

THAT'S AWESOME.

HOW DILIGENT.

HIGHJACKS HERHERE IS ANOTHER STORY TO

MAKE YOU SMILE.

FOR FOUR YEARS, HE SERVED

AS A HIGH SCHOOL

BASKETBALL TEAM AS

MANAGER, BUT HE ALWAYS

WANTED TO PLAY ON THE

TEAM.

Gordon: AMARO, WHO

HAS CEREBRAL PALSY,

FINALLY GOT HIS BIG BREAK

ON SERIOUS' DAY, WHEN THE

TEAM ASKED HIM TO SUIT UP

AND PLAY.

AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED

WHEN HE TOOK HIS VERY

FIRST SHOT.

[CHEERING]

Gordon: THAT IS A

WONDERFUL THING.

Terry: THAT IS A

WONDERFUL THING.

AND HATS OFF TO THE

STUDENTS AND THE COACHES

AND JUST THE SCHOOL THAT

REALLY SEES THE VALUE AND

THE REALLY AMAZING WORTH

IN EVERY STUDENT.

PRETTY WONDERFUL.

> COMING UP, HOW THE

"TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL" STAR

IS PLANNING TO SHINE A

LIGHT IN A WORLD

SURROUNDED BY DARKNESS.

I WANTED TO CREATE A

GATHERING PLACE FOR

INSPIRATIONAL AND POSITIVE

CONTENT.

YOU WANT TO JUST SHARE IT

IN SOME WAY BECAUSE IT

TOUCHED YOUR HEART.

THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING.

Terry: ROMA DOWNING

REVEALS HER PLANS FOR

"LIGHT WORKERS" AND MORE,

WHEN WE COME BACK.

Terry: ROMA DOWNING

MAY BE BEST KNOWN FOR HER

ROLE IN THE HIT SERIES

"TOUCHED BY AN EARTH," AND ANGEL," AND

IN RECENT YEARS SHE AND

HER HUSBAND, MARK BURNETT,

PRODUCED GROUNDBREAKING

SERIES.

NOW SHE HAS A NEW ONLINE

PROJECT THAT IS ABOUT

SPREADING HOPE AND

ENCOURAGEMENT.

JENNA BROWDER BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

IN GRAPHIC DETAIL,

HARVEY WEINSTEIN IS ADDING

TO A LIST THAT HAS NOW

GROWN TO MORE THAN 60.

Reporter: IN A TIME

OF SO MUCH NEGATIVE NEWS,

SOME GOOD NEWS, OR, BETTER

YET, A GLIMMER OF LIFE.

HOW DO YOU GO FROM GOOD

TO GREAT?

Reporter: INTRODUCING

"LIGHT WORKERS," CREATED

BY ACTRESS AND PRODUCER

ROMA DOWNEY.

ON AND I SAID TO MY

HUSBAND, I WISH SOMEBODY

SOMEWHERE WOULD GENERATE A

GOOD NEWS CHANNEL, WHERE

WE COULD CELEBRATE ALL OF

THE AMAZING THINGS THAT

PEOPLE ARE DOING AT HOME

AND ABROAD, AND SPEAK TO

THE KINDNESS IN PEOPLE'S

HEARTS, AND SPEAK TO THE

HEROS IN COMMUNITIES.

> HAVE YOU EVER HEARD

THE EXPRESSION: "IT IS

BETTER TO LIGHT ONE CANDLE

THAN CURSE THE DARKNESS."

Reporter:

ENTERTAINMENT, LIFESTYLE,

FAMILY, AND FAITH ARE SOME

OF THE TOPICS.

I WANTED TO CREATE A

GATHERING PLACE FOR SHORT,

SHAREABLE -- THAT'S ALMOST

HARD TO SAY -- SHORT,

SHAREABLE, SNACKABLE,

INSPIRATIONAL, AND

POSITIVE CONTENT.

THAT IF YOU SAW SOMETHING

ON "LIGHT WORKERS" AND YOU

WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH

YOUR MOM OR YOU WANTED TO

SEND IT TO YOUR SONG, OR

YOU WANTED TO SHARE IT IN

SOME WAY BECAUSE IT

TOUCHED YOUR HEART.

Reporter: WE TALKED

AT WASHINGTON'S NEWLY

OPENED "MUSEUM OF THE

BIBLE."

SHE AND HER HUSBAND, MARK

BURNETT, GOT ON BOARD

EARLY ON AND DONATED THIS

TIFFANY STAINED GLASS

WINDOW.

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT

BELIEVERS, WHAT DO YOU

HOPE THEY TAKE AWAY FROM

THIS MUSEUM?

I HOPE THEY WILL COME

HERE AND SEE THE INFLUENCE

THAT THE BIBLE HAS HAD

THROUGH TIME AND THROUGH

HISTORY.

FOR ANYBODY THAT IS JUST

SEEING ABOUT IT ON

TELEVISION OR READING

ABOUT IT IN THE

NEWSPAPERS, I WOULD

ENCOURAGE FOLKS TO GRAB

THEIR KIDS AND TO GET IN A

CAR, GET ON A PLANE, AND

COME TO WASHINGTON, D.C.

THIS IS A MUST-SEE PART OF

YOUR MUSEUM EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: FROM THE

GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL TO

SOME NOT SO GOOD NEWS.

WE DISCUSSED THE CULTURE

IN HOLLYWOOD, AND GROWING

ONSLAUGHT OF SEXUAL

HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS.

I THINK JUST THE FACT

THAT THIS STORY KEEPS

UNFOLDING IN NEW AND

HORRIBLE WAYS IN AND OF

ITSELF DEMANDS A CHANGE

THAT, YOU KNOW, IS ALREADY

OCCURRING.

YOU KNOW, YOU SEE IT

WITHIN COMPANIES, THAT

MEMOS ARE COMING DOWN FROM

THE TOP THAT THIS SORT OF

BEHAVIOUR WILL NOT BE

TOLERATED.

THERE WILL BE ZERO

TOLERANCE FOR IT.

Reporter: ROMA SAYS

SHE IS HOPEFUL FOR NEW

GENERATIONS COMING INTO

THE ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRY.

I DON'T THINK WE'VE

SEEN THE END OF IT YET.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO SEE

MORE.

BUT I DO BELIEVE THAT IT

WILL BE BRING ABOUT A

MUCH-NEEDED CHANGE.

Reporter: AND SHE IS

A PART OF THAT CHANGE.

IT IS WITH THIS SAME

PASSION AND PURPOSE THAT

WE ARE LAUNCHING

lightworkers.com.

> WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN

OUR OPTIMISTS, BELIEVERS,

DREAMERS, AND DO-ERS.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

IS WORKING ON A NEW

NETWORK SERIES CALLED

"MESSIAH."

IT IS A CONTEMPORARY

SHOW SET IN MODERN DAY.

IT IS A VERY PROVOCATIVE

STORY, BUT I THINK IT

WOULD GET PEOPLE

ADDRESSING WHAT WOULD YOU

DO IF JESUS WERE TO COME

BACK?

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN OUR

WORLD IF HE WERE TO COME

BACK, AND COME BACK

TOMORROW?

AND ARE YOU READY?

IT WILL START ASKING THESE

SORTS OF QUESTIONS OF

SOCIETY.

AND WE WELCOME THAT KIND

OF CONVERSATION.

BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT

THAT'S WHAT'S NEEDED, THAT

WE NEED TO BE REMINDED OF

THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD.

Reporter: JENNA

BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Terry: WELL, I, FOR

ONE, HARDLY SAY YAY.

I CAN BARELY MAKE IT

THROUGH A NEWSCAST ANYMORE

WITHOUT JUST GOING, I

DON'T WANT TO WATCH IT.

BUT ROMA AND HER HUSBAND,

MARK BURNETT, HAVE BEEN

KNOWN FOR BRINGING THE

LIGHT INTO THE DARKNESS

FOR A LONG TIME NOW.

AND WE CAN EXPECT THIS

KIND OF QUALITY ENDEAVOR

AND WORK FROM THEM.

IT WILL BE EXCITING.

Gordon: I LOVE THE

SENTIMENT BEHIND IT.

LET'S BRING SOME LIGHT

INTO A VERY DARK WORLD.

YEAH.

Terry: SO YOU CAN

CHECK OUT "LIGHT WORKERS"

FOR YOURSELF.

JUST GO TO

lightworkers.com.

Gordon: UP NEXT, THE

WITCH WHO WELCOMED THE

DARKNESS WHO HER HOUSE AND

WATCHED AS IT ATTACKED HER

DAUGHTER.

SHE HAD HAND PRINTS ON

HER BODY.

AND THEN IT ESCALATEEDED ESCALATEED TO

BITE MARKS.

AND SHE WAS SAYING, THE

MONSTER TOUCHED MY FEET.

AND I THOUGHT, OH, MY

GOODNESS, WHAT IS THIS?

Gordon: WATCH AS SHE

BREAKS A DEMONIC

STRONGHOLD OVER HER HOUSE

ONCE AND FOR ALL.

THAT'S UP NEXT.

Gordon: GROWING UP,

ATHELA THOUGHT SHE WAS

SURROUNDED BY EVIL.

IN FACT, SHE WAS BORN ON

6/6/76, COM LED HER WHICH LED HER

SIBLINGS TO CALL HER THE

DEVIL'S DAUGHTER.

AND SHE LET DEMONIC FORCES

INTO HER HOUSE UNTIL THEY

STARTED TO COME INTO HER

FAMILY.

THE PICTURES WOULD FALL

OFF THE WALLS, THE

DOORBELL WOULD RING, AND

NO ONE WOULD BE THERE.

Reporter: ATHELA GREW

UP IN A FAMILY PLAGUED BY

PARANORMAL EXPERIENCES.

IN SEARCH FOR ANSWERS, HER

MOTHER EMBRACED THE A CULT.

SHE BELIEVED SOMEONE

HAD PLACED A SPELL ON THE

FAMILY BECAUSE OF ALL OF

THE BAD EXPERIENCES SHE

HAD AND WE ALL HAD.

Reporter: SHE

FOLLOWED HER MOTHER'S LEAD

INTO THE OCCULT.

I WANTED TO SEEK

ANSWERS.

AND I NEEDED GUIDANCE OF

SOME SOURCE.

AND I FIGURED IF MY MOM

SEEKED GUIDANCE THROUGH

PALM READERS, I FELT THIS

IS THE WAY TO GO.

THIS IS THE WAY TO GET

ANSWERS.

Reporter: SHE NEVER

FOUND THE ANSWERS SHE

E WAS LOOKINWASLOOKING FOR.

I WANTED TO END MY

LIFE.

I THOUGHT, WHAT DO I HAVE

TO LIVE FOR?

I WAS LOST, AND I TURNED

TO DRUGS, ALCOHOL.

I STARTED HEAVILY

DRINKING.

SOMETIMES I WOULD WALK ALL

NIGHT BECAUSE I HAD

NOWHERE TO SLEEP.

Reporter: SHE LEARNED

TO READ TAROT CARDS AND

BEGAN USING WITCHCRAFT TO

GAIN CONTROL OF HER LIFE.

BUT FOR ATHELA, THERE WAS

NO ESCAPE FROM THE FEAR

AND DARKNESS THAT DEFINED

HER LIFE.

I KNEW THAT THE DEVIL

WAS WITH ME.

I FELT HIM.

I FELT A NEGATIVE PRESENCE

BECAUSE I WANTED THE

NEGATIVE PRESENCE -- AS

WEIRD AS IT SOUNDS.

I THRIVED ON THE NEGATIVE.

I THRIVED ON THE DARKNESS.

I THRIVED TO FEEL THE

DARKNESS BECAUSE I WAS SO

CONSUMED, AND I WAS IN

SUCH A BAD PLACE, THAT

THAT WAS ALL I KNEW.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY

SHE GOT OFF DRUGS AND HAD

A CHILD.

SHE MOVED IN WITH HER

BOYFRIEND, WHOM SHE WOULD

LATER MARRY, BUT THE

SPIRITUAL DARKNESS

FOLLOWED HER AND BECAME

EVIDENT, EVEN TO HER YOUNG

DAUGHTER.

SHE, RANDOMLY, OUT OF

NOWHERE, STARTED POINTING

FROM WHERE SHE WAS

SITTING, AND SHE WAS

SAYING, MONSTER.

THE MONSTER IS CLOSE TO

ME.

THE MONSTER TOUCHED MY

FEET.

AND SHE WAS JUST TRYING

TO, LIKE, MOVE AWAY FROM

WHATEVER SHE WAS LOOKING

AT.

AND I THOUGHT, OH, MY

GOODNESS, WHAT IS THIS?

I WAS ANXIOUS, AND I

COULDN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT.

WHEN I WOULD WAKE UP IN

THE MORNING, I WOULD LOOK

AROUND, AND I ALWAYS FELT

THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING

THERE.

Reporter: THE

ENCOUNTERS WITH DEMONIC

SPIRITS MULTIPLIED AND

BECAME MORE INTENSE AROUND

HER AND HER DAUGHTER.

SHE HAD HAND PRINTS ON

HER BODY.

AND THEN IT ESCALATED TO

BITE MARKS.

I WAS BEYOND MYSELF

BECAUSE HOW DO I PROTECT

MY DAUGHTER?

WHAT DO I DO?

I DIDN'T BELIEVE IN GOD AT

THAT TIME.

SO MY HUSBAND WOULD TELL

ME, YOU KNOW, YOU NEED TO

PRAY.

AND I WOULD SAY, THAT'S

NOT GOING TO WORK.

IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK.

WHAT DOES THAT EVEN DO?

Reporter: DESPERATE,

WITH NO OPTIONS, ATHELA

ASKED HER AUNT, WHO WAS A

PASTOR, FOR PRAYER.

SHE PRAYED WITH ALL OF

US IN THE HOUSE.

AND I FELT AN OVERWHELMING

SENSE OF PEACE.

AND I TOLD MY HUSBAND I

FELT INCREDIBLE, A VERY

PEACEFUL FEELING.

AND HE SAID, THAT WAS THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

AND I SAID, WHAT DOES THAT

MEAN?

OKAY, WHATEVER THAT MEANS,

I'LL TAKE IT.

I LOVE THAT FEELING.

Reporter: BUT AS THEY

PRAYED, A CANDLE EXPLODED

IN ANOTHER ROOM.

SOMETHING HAD CAUSED

THAT.

SOMETHING DIDN'T LIKE THE

PRAYER.

SOMETHING DIDN'T LIKE THE

GOOD THINGS THAT WERE

GOING ON IN THAT HOUSE.

Reporter: ATHELA THEN

REACHED OUT TO HER UNCLE,

WHO IS ALSO A PASTOR, FOR

HELP.

MY UNCLE ASKED ME, DO

YOU ACCEPT GOD IN YOUR

LIFE?

I THOUGHT ABOUT IT, AND I

SAID, I WILL DO WHATEVER

IT TAKES TO HELP MY

DAUGHTER.

Reporter: HE LED HER

IN A PRAYER FOR REPENTANCE

AND FORGIVENESS.

I REPEATED THE WORDS

THAT MY UNCLE WAS SAYING,

BUT YET I FELT THAT

OVERWHELMING PEACE.

I KNEW, AFTER I SAID THAT

PRAYER, THAT MY LIFE WAS

GOING TO CHANGE.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW BECAUSE

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE

CONCEPT YET.

I JUST KNEW THIS IS

SOMETHING BIG.

Reporter: THINGS

BEGAN TO CHANGE RIGHT

AWAY.

IN THE FOLLOWING WEEKS,

SHE SAYS GOD FILLED HER

WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND

GAVE HER INCREDIBLE JOY.

AT THAT MOMENT, I KNEW

THIS WAS SOMETHING THAT

WAS HAPPENING, AND IT WAS

SUPER NATURAL.

AND TO HEAR IT WAS A GIFT

FROM GOD, I THOUGHT, HE

LOVES ME THAT MUCH.

HE LOVES ME THAT MUCH TO

LET ME HAVE THIS GIFT.

LIKE, WHY DO I DESERVE

THIS?

AFTER EVERYTHING THAT I'VE

BEEN THROUGH AND

EXPERIENCED, AND ALL OF

THE BAD THINGS I HAD EVER

DONE, ALL OF A SUDDEN I

HAVE GOD SHOWING UP IN MY

LIFE AND SAYING, HELLO, I

LOVE YOU.

YOU KNOW?

IT'S JUST AN AMAZING

FEELING.

IT IS AN OVERWHELMING

FEELING OF LOVE AND PEACE

AND JOY AND JUST

EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD.

IT COMES FROM HIM.

Reporter: SINCE THE

DAY SHE INVITED JESUS INTO

HER LIFE, THE DEMONIC

DARKNESS THAT ONCE DEFINED

HER HAS BEEN REPLACED BY

THE LIGHT AND PRESENCE OF

GOD.

I FEEL NEW, COMPLETELY

NEW.

AND TO ME THAT IS JUST

AMAZING BECAUSE I NEVER

THOUGHT I COULD BE

DIFFERENT.

I WAS IN THE DARK FOR SO

LONG, AND JUST TO HAVE

THAT LIGHT UPON ME IS JUST

THE MOST GRATIFYING AND

THE MOST AMAZING AND

BEAUTIFUL FEELING IN THE

WORLD.

AND I WOULDN'T TRADE IT

FOR ANYTHING.

I WILL NEVER GO BACK,

EVER.

Gordon: AND THE BEST

NEWS IS SHE DOESN'T HAVE

TO GO BACK.

THE PROMISE FOR HER, FROM

THIS DAY FORWARD I WILL

NEVER LEAVE YOU, I WILL

NEVER FORSAKE YOU.

HE WILL BE WITH YOU FOR

ALL ETERNITY.

THAT IS A GREAT PROMISE.

HE WON'T COME AND GO.

HE WON'T GET MAD AT YOU IF

YOU DO SOMETHING WRONG.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET

FORGIVENESS IS COME TO HIM

AND SAY, JESUS, I'M SORRY,

COULD YOU FORGIVE ME?

IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE

IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO

FORGIVE US AND TO CLEANSE

US FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

NOW, ATHELA, SHE WAS SET

UP.

SHE WAS SET UP TO PURSUE

EVIL.

SHE DID THAT.

HER BIRTHDAY WAS AN

UNFORTUNATE DAY.

BUT IN ALL OF THAT

NUMEROLOGY, IF YOU WILL,

SHE GOT CONVINCED THAT

SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER SHE WAS

THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER JUST

BECAUSE OF NUMBERS ON A

GREGORIAN CALENDAR.

THAT WASN'T GOD'S PLAN.

HE DIDN'T WANT THAT FOR

HER.

BUT IT HAPPENED.

BUT HERE IS THE GREAT

NEWS: GOD HAD A PLAN AND

A WAY OUT FOR HER.

EVEN THOUGH SHE INVITED

THESE THINGS INTO HER

LIFE, HE WAS ABLE TO

CANCEL THOSE INVITATIONS,

SET HER FREE, AND GIVE HER

JOY AND PEACE.

I DON'T CARE WHAT BARGAIN

YOU'VE MADE, HERE IS THE

BARGAIN THAT JESUS HAS

ALREADY MADE: BY HIS OWN

BLOOD, BY THE WORK OF THE

CROSS, HE HAS BOUGHT AND

PAID FOR YOU.

AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT

CAN OVERCOME THAT.

HE IS ABOVE EVERY GOD.

HE IS ABOVE EVERY

PRINCIPALITY.

HE IS ABOVE EVERY POWER.

AND HE HAS THE POWER TO

RESCUE YOU.

AND HE LOVES YOU

INFINITELY.

YOU HEARD ATHELA SAY IT, I

JUST DIDN'T UNDERSTAND

THAT THERE WAS THIS KIND

OF LOVE FOR ME.

YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THAT.

YOU CAN KNOW THAT.

YOU CAN EXPERIENCE IT.

YOU CAN HAVE IT FOR

YOURSELF.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

FOR IT.

GIVE PERMISSION FOR JESUS

TO COME TO YOU.

HE WANTS YOU TO.

HE WANTS TO BE PART OF

YOUR LIFE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ASK

FOR IT.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, BOW

YOUR HEAD WITH ME.

LET'S PRAY TOGETHER AND

LET'S LET JESUS DO ALL THE

REST.

PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME.

SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU, AND

I ASK RIGHT NOW THAT YOU

FORGIVE ME, THAT YOU SET

ME FREE, THAT YOU CLEANSE

ME FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

AND, JESUS, I ASK RIGHT

NOW THAT YOU CANCEL ANY

BARGAIN I HAVE EVER MADE

AND SET ME FREE.

YOU HAVE REDEEMED ME.

AND I TRUST IN YOU.

BE WITH ME NOW, FOR I PRAY

IT IN JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED, SET THEM FREE.

LET THEM KNOW RIGHT NOW

THAT THEIR PRAYER HAS BEEN

HEARD AND HAS BEEN

ANSWERED, AND DELIVER THEM

NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

> IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

THERE IS ONE MORE THING I

WANT YOU TO DO.

I WANT YOU TO MAKE A PHONE

CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

WE HAVE A PACKET FOR YOU

CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND IT'S ALL FREE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

AND GET IT.

> HERE IS A WORD FROM

GALATIANS: "THAT GOD

FORBID THAT I SHOULD

BOAST, EXCEPT IN THE CROSS

OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST,

BY WHOM THE WORLD HAS BEEN

CRUCIFIED TO ME AND I TO

THE WORLD."
