700 Club Interactive - March 12, 2018

How do we recognize end-time signs? Author David Parsons compares current events to the days of Noah to show where we are on the prophetic timetable. Read Transcript


Gordon: A HEALTHY

20-YEAR-OLD CUT DOWN IN

HIS PRIME.

I DIDN'T REALIZE HE

ACTUALLY DIED.

Gordon: THE E.R. CREW

LABELLED HIS CLINICALLY

DEAD.

>WATCH WHAT HAPPENS

WHEN A GROUP OF PRAYER

WARRIORS INTERVENE.

AND THAT'S WHEN GOD

STARTED WORKING ONE

MIRACLE AFTER ANOTHER.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

WELL, WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

HERE IS A STORY THAT WILL

MAKE YOU SAY, WOW.

20 SOMETHING JACOB AND

PEGGY SMITH WERE MARRIED

WITH NO CHILDREN, WHEN

JACOB CAME ACROSS A STORY

ABOUT EIGHT KIDS THAT

NEEDED TO BE ADOPTED.

Terry: JACOB TOLD HIS

MOTHER HE WOULD LOVE TO

ADOPT THEM.

HIS MOTHER OFFERED TO

TAKE THE FIVE YOUNGER KIDS

AND SUGGESTED THAT PEGGY

AND JACOB TAKE THE THREE

YOUNGER ONES.

Gordon: THEIR FRIENDS

THINK THEY'RE CRAZY, BUT

THEY BELIEVE THEY'RE UP

FOR THE TASK.

OVER THE YEARS, THEY'VE

PARENTED 15 CHILDREN

FULL-TIME AND CARED FOR

OVER 100 CHILDREN AS

FOSTER PARENTS.

LAWRENCE SAYS WLAUREN SAYS WE FEEL IT

BOILS DOWN TO, IF NOT US,

THEN WHO.

Terry: BECAUSE THEY

LIVE JUST A FEW DOORS DOWN

FROM JACOB AND PEGGING,

THE SIBLINGS WILL BE ABLE

TO GROW UP TOGETHER.

THE 10-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER

GAVE THEM A NOTE SAYING,

"THANK YOU FOR LETTING US

LIVE IN YOUR HOMES.

YOU HAVE SAVED US FROM

BEING SEPARATED."

AND I'M WITH LAUREN ON

THAT, IF NOT US, WHO?

IT OUGHT TO BE THE

QUESTION THAT CHRISTIANS

ASK THEMSELVES ABOUT

DIFFICULT CHOICES IN LIFE.

IT IS WHAT WE'RE MADE FOR.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO DO THAT.

Gordon: OKAY, SO ARE

YOU GOING TO TAKE ON

ANOTHER 10?

Terry: NO.

I JUST FOUND ONE RECENTLY,

AND I'M GOOD WITH THAT.

Gordon: THERE COMES A

TIME...

> BILLY GRAHAM'S FUNERAL

WAS WATCHED BY MILLIONS

AROUND THE WORLD, AND

SINCE THEN ONE CLIP FROM

THE FUNERAL HAS BEEN

SHARED ALMOST TWO MILLION

TIMES.

Terry: MR. GRAHAM

ONCE WROTE THAT ANNE

GRAHAM-LOTZ WAS THE REAL

PREACHER IN THEIR

HOUSEHOLD.

LISTEN TO WHAT ANNE SHARED

ABOUT THE SIGNIFICANCE OF

THE DAY HER FATHER DIED,

AND YOU'LL SEE WHY HER

FATHER WROTE THAT.

I THINK WHEN HE DIED, I

THINK THAT WAS SOMETHING

VERY STRATEGIC FROM

HEAVEN'S POINT OF VIEW.

I KNOW THAT BEFORE THE

FOUNDATIONS WERE LAID

FEBRUARY 21st, 2018, WAS

THE DATE THAT GOD CHOSE TO

TAKE MY FATHER HOME.

WHY?

I HAD A SWEET FRIEND WHO

URGED ME TO LOOK THAT UP

ON THE WEB.

I LOOKED OUT WHAT WAS

SIGNIFICANT ABOUT THAT DAY

AND I FOUND THAT

FEBRUARY 21st, 2018, IS

THE DAY WHEN JEWS FOCUS ON

SCRIPTURE READING THAT

FOCUSES ON THE DEATH OF

MOSES.

MOSES BROUGHT MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE OUT OF BONDAGE, AND

GOD TOOK HIM TO HEAVEN.

AND THEN GOD BROUGHT

JOSHUA TO LEAD THEM INTO

THE PROMISED LAND TO TAKE

THEM HOME.

AND MY FATHER ALSO IS A

GREAT LIBERATER.

HE BROUGHT MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE OUT OF BONDAGE TO

SIN, AND HE GETS US TO THE

EDGE OF HEAVEN, THE

PROMISED LAND, AND THEN

GOD HAS CALLED HIM HOME.

AND COULD IT BE THAT GOD

IS GOING TO BRING JOSHUA

TO LEAD US INTO THE

PROMISED LAND, TO LEAD US

TO HEAVEN?

AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE

NEW TESTAMENT NAME IS FOR

JOSHUA?

IT IS JESUS.

AND I BELIEVE THIS IS A

SHOT ACROSS THE BOW FROM

HEAVEN.

AND I BELIEVE GOD IS

SAYING, WAKE UP, CHURCH,

WAKE UP, WORLD, WAKE UP,

ANNE.

JESUS IS COMING.

JESUS IS COMING.

Terry: WOW.

Gordon: LOOK TO THE

HEAVENS, FOR OUR

REDEMPTION DRAWS NYE.

THE HOPE OF THE CHURCH.

> A NEW BILL THAT JUST

PASSED IN THE WASHINGTON

STATE LEGISLATURE WILL

LEGALIZE COMMERCIAL

SURROGACY.

Terry: HOUSE

REPUBLICANS ALL VOTED

AGAINST THE BILL, ARGUING

IT OPENS CHILDREN UP TO

ABUSE AND OTHER HORROR.

ONE SAID, "WE ALL VOTED NO

TO PROTECT THE WOMB FROM

BEING MONETIZED AND

COMMERCIALLIZED."

WHAT HAVE WE BECOME AS A

STATE, SELLING HUMAN

BABIES TO THE HIGHEST

BIDDER.

IS THIS WHO WE ARE?

Gordon: KATIE, FROM

THE CHILDREN'S RIGHTS

ORGANIZATION, BELIEVES

THIS LAW WILL BE

DISASTEROUS.

SHE SAYS, "WHEN I SAY WE

HAVE ESTABLISHED A GLOBAL

MARKETPLACE FOR CHILDREN,

I'M NOT EXAGGERATING."

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THIS

IS.

ONCE YOU LEGALIZE AND

COMMERCIALIZE SOMETHING,

YOU'RE GOING TO GET MORE

OF IT.

AND THAT IS TRUE.

YOU'RE GOING TO SEE

PEOPLE, WOMEN, SELLING

THEIR WOMBS, WHICH IS KIND

OF -- I DON'T KNOW.

Terry: WELL...

Gordon: THERE HAS

BEEN SURROGACY FOR A LONG

TIME.

THERE ARE PAYMENTS TO THE

SURROGATE MOTHER, SO THAT

HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE FOR

A WHILE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT?

Terry: I THINK IT

OPENS THE DOOR TO A LOT OF

LEGAL THINGS.

HERE YOU ARE, MR. LAWYER,

YOU MUST BE THINKING THAT,

TOO.

SOMETHING HAPPENS IN MANY

WOMEN -- I WON'T SAY IT IS

EVERY WOMAN -- BUT WOMEN,

WHEN THEY CARRY A BABY,

THERE IS AN ATTACHMENT,

WHETHER THEY INTENDED FOR

THAT TO HAPPEN OR NOT.

AND THEN THERE ARE BABIES

THAT ARE PROMISED AND NOT

DELIVERED.

Gordon: WE'VE ALREADY

SEEN THAT.

THOSE LAWSUITS ARE ALREADY

THERE.

ALL OF THAT IS CURRENTLY

THE STATE OF AFFAIRS.

AND THEN YOU GET INTO VERY

INTERESTING THINGS, LIKE

WHO ARE THE BIOLOGICAL

PARENTS?

AND WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

Terry: CHILDREN WANT

TO KNOW.

Gordon: SO...YOU CAN

BE THE MOTHER THAT BRINGS

TO TERM BUT NOT BE THE

BIOLOGICAL MOTHER, AND

THAT'S THE STATE OF THE

TECHNOLOGY TODAY.

AND SO HOW ARE THOSE

RIGHTS ESTABLISHED?

BUT I THINK WE'VE GOTTEN

VERY CASUAL WITH IT.

AND IT IS JUST SORT OF A

FURTHER EXTENSION.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

VERY DEEP EMOTIONAL SOUL

TIES THAT ARE CREATED BY

THE SEXUAL ACT, NOR DO WE

UNDERSTAND THE DEEP

EMOTIONAL SOUL TIES THAT

ARE CREATED BY CARRYING A

CHILD TO TERM.

Terry: MONETIZING IT,

IT ADDS SOMETHING TO IT

THAT JUST SENDS A CHILL UP

YOUR SPINE.

Gordon: DEFINITELY

THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

> PARENTS, WE WANT TO

GIVE YOU A HEADS-UP.

THERE IS A NEW FAD THAT

TEENAGERS ARE FINDING

IRRESISTABLE, AND IT IS A

SMOKING DEVICE CALLED

JUUL.

AND SOME ARE CALLING IT

THE iPHONE

OF eCIGARETTES.

IT LOOKS LIKE A FLASH

DRIVE.

STUDENTS ARE LITERALLY

SMOKING IN CLASS, AND

TEACHERS DON'T EVEN NOTICE

IT.

Terry: JUUL IS A

PORTABLE NICOTINE DELIVERY

DEVICE, AND WITH EACH

PUFF, IT DELIVERS A POTENT

DOSE OF NICOTINE.

THE DEVICE IS

RECHARGEABLE.

AND STUDENTS CAN JUST POP

THE DEVICE IN THEIR LAPTOP

IF THEY NEED TO CHARGE IT.

Gordon: ONE POD IS

EQUIVALENT TO ONE PACK OF

CIGARETTES.

IT IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE

BECAUSE IT HAS NICOTINE.

AND THE LATEST RESEARCH

SHOWS IT IS MORE DANGEROUS

THAN INITIALLY THOUGHT.

THEY FOUND THAT

SMOKING eCIGARETTES CAN

RELEASE SIGNIFICANT

AMOUNTS OF TOXIC METALS IN

ITS VAPORS.

AND THE RESEARCHERS

DISCOVERED THAT THE

NICOTINE IN eCIGARETTES

CAUSE CANCER IN MICE, AND

MAY CONTRIBUTE TO HEART

DISEASE.

LET ME JUST SAY, THIS

IS -- WOW.

Terry: WOW, INDEED.

TEENS WHO VAP ARE SIX

TIMES MORE LIKELY TO LATER

BEGIN SMOKING.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE

DIFFERENCE IS, THERE IS

NICOTINE IN BOTH CASES.

A RECENT REPORT FOUND

THAT eCIGARETTE USE ROSE

60% NATIONWIDE.

JUST SEARCH JUUL ON INS

INSTAGRAM OR YouTube

AND YOU'LL SEE HOW POPULAR

IT IS.

THE COMPANY SAYS IT IS

CAREFUL NOT TO SELL TO

MINORS, BUT WITH FLAVORS

LIKE COOL MINT, CREME DE

BRULE, IT IS EVERYTHING A

TYPICAL TEENAGER CAN'T

RESIST.

I WANT TO ASK, YOU SAW

THE EXHALING OF WHAT LOOKS

LIKE A FOREST FIRE --

Gordon: THAT'S FROM

THE VAPOR.

THIS, APPARENTLY, DOESN'T

HAVE THAT SMOKE, SO I

DON'T KNOW HOW THAT WORKS.

HERE IS A FACT ABOUT

NICOTINE: IT CHANGES THE

WIRING OF YOUR BRAIN.

IT CHANGES HOW YOU THINK.

AND WHAT IT DOES IS IT

STARTS TO CREATE A CRAVING

FOR MORE NICOTINE.

THIS ISN'T ONE AND DONE.

THIS IS WHEN YOU START

TAKING NICOTINE, IT

ENCOURAGES YOU TO TAKE IT

AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG

BEFORE IT STARTS TO TAKE

OVER YOUR LIFE.

IF YOU'VE EVER WONDERED

WHY PEOPLE STAND OUTSIDE

IN THE COLD TO SMOKE A

CIGARETTE, WELL, THE

REASON THEY'RE DOING THAT

IS THEY'RE ADDICTED.

AND THE CHEMICAL HAS

CHANGED THE THINKING OF

THEIR BRAIN.

WHY WOULD YOU EVER WANT

THAT?

THERE IS NOTHING COOL

ABOUT IT.

AND THEN WHEN YOU ADD TO

IT THAT IT LEADS TO

CANCER, WHY IN THE

WORLD -- WHAT'S THIS

ABOUT.

ANY WAY, BE SMART.

FOUR PARENTS, YOU ALREADY

KNOW THE DANGERS.

THE DEVELOPMENT IN THEIR

BRAIN HASN'T FULLY TAKEN

OVER -- THAT DOESN'T OCCUR

UNTIL YOUR 25.

MAKE THEM AWARE OF THE

RISKS THAT THEY'RE TAKING.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE A

LIFETIME OF ADDICTION.

Terry: W WELL, UP NEXT,

A COLLEGE STUDENT

COLLAPSES PLAYING

FOOTBALL.

HE WAS COLD AND HE WAS

CLAMMY.

THE PANIC, IT WAS REAL.

I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT IT

WAS THAT BAD.

I DIDN'T REALIZE HE

ACTUALLY DIED.

Terry: SEE HOW A

MIRACLE RESURRECTS THIS

YOUNG MAN AFTER HE WAS

DEAD FOR 20 MINUTES.

Terry: AFTER

COLLAPSING O ON THE FOOTBALL

FIELD, STEVEN MASK WAS

CLINICALLY DEAD FOR MORE

THAN 20 MINUTES.

HIS HEART WAS ENLARGED,

AND NEARLY 90% OF HIS

BRAIN WAS DAMAGED.

DOCTORS TOLD HIS MOTHER,

TAMMIE, IF HER SON

SURVIVED, HE WOULD REMAIN

IN A VEGETATIVE STATE

PERMANENTLY, BUT THE

DOCTORS WERE DEAD WRONG.

Reporter: ON

SEPTEMBER 21st, 2011,

TAMMIE MASK GOT A

DEVASTATING PHONE CALL

ABOUT HER 20-YEAR-OLD SON,

STEVEN.

MY SISTER WAS, LIKE,

MEET US AT THE HOSPITAL,

STEVEN HAS COLLAPSED.

I DIDN'T REALIZE IT WAS

THAT BAD.

I DIDN'T REALIZE HE

ACTUALLY DIED.

Reporter: EARLIER

THAT DAY, STEVEN GOT

TOGETHER WITH FRIENDS FOR

A PICK-UP FOOTBALL GAME

WITH HIS FRIENDS.

IN THE MIDDLE OF A PLAY,

STEVEN FELL SUDDENLY

FACE-FIRST ON THE FIELD.

EVERYBODY WENT OVER

THERE AND TURNED HIM OVER

SLOWLY.

LUCKILY MISS JEWEL, WHO IS

A NURSE, WAS OVER THERE.

AS I WAS ON MY WAY

OVER, I KEPT THINKING,

LORD, PLEASE LET HIM BE

OKAY.

HE WAS COLD, AND HE WAS

CLAMMY.

AND I KEPT DOING

COMPRESSIONS.

THE PANIC, IT WAS REAL.

Reporter: JEWEL

RANDALL CONTINUED C.P.R.

UNTIL PARAMEDICS ARRIVED

AND FOUND STEVEN IN FULL

CARDIAC ARREST.

ON THE WAY TO THE

HOSPITAL, THEY GOT A

PULSE.

THEY TOOK ME TO THE

ROOM WHERE STEVEN WAS, AND

HE WAS HOOKED UP TO ALL OF

THESE MACHINES.

I JUST STARTED BEGGING GOD

NOT TO TAKE MY CHILD.

TO TAKE MY LIFE INSTEAD.

Reporter: BUT DOCTORS

SAID THERE WAS NOTHING

MORE THEY COULD DO FOR HER

SON.

HE WAS LIFE-FLIGHTED TO

HOUSTON METHODIST

HOSPITAL, AND DR. KAHN WAS

STEVEN'S CARDIOLOGIST THE.

HE WAS COMATOSE, HE WAS

INCUBATED, AND HE WAS ON A

FEEDING TUBE AND ON SOME

DRIPS TO GET HIM GOING.

Reporter: STEVEN HAD

BEEN CLINICALLY DEAD

WITHOUT OXYGEN FOR A

HEARTBEAT FOR OVER 30

MINUTES.

NEARLY 90% OF HIS BRAIN

WAS SEVERELY DAMAGED.

IF HE SURVIVED, THE

DOCTORS SAID HE WOULD BE

IN A VEGETATIVE STATE FOR

THE REST OF HIS LIFE.

IT'S LIKE YOU'VE BEEN

STABBED IN YOUR HEART.

IT WAS VERY HEART,

SEEING HIM HOOKED UP TO

ALL KINDS OF WIRES AND

MASHES.

IT WAS JUST DEVASTATING.

I HAD FAITH HE WOULD

RECOVER.

Reporter: WITH NO

TIME TO WASTE, THE MASK

FAMILY CALLED ON THEIR

CHURCH, FAMILY, AND

COMMUNITY FOR PRAYERS AND

SUPPORT.

THREE DAYS WENT BY WITH NO

SIGN OF PROGRESS.

STEVEN DEVELOPED A STAPH

INFECTION IN HIS LUNGS,

BUT THEY DIDN'T GIVE UP.

I FELT LIKE GOD ASKED

US TO FAST, AND I ASKED

EVERYONE ON Facebook TO

PLEASE FAST AND PRAY FOR

STEVEN THAT GOD WOULD

SPARE HIS LIFE, AND NOT

ONLY SPARE HIS LIFE, BUT

RESTORE HIM AND MAKE HIM

WHOLE.

THAT'S WHEN GOD STARTED

ONE MIRACLE AFTER

ANOTHERMENT.

Reporter: AFTER ONLY

A DAY OF FASTING FOR

STEVEN, HIS LUNG INFECTION

CLEARED UP AND STEVEN CAME

OUT OF THE COMA.

WE WERE JUST SO

GRATEFUL, JUST THANKFUL,

JUST A FEELING OF

GRATITUDE AND THANKFULNESS

IN JESUS.

Reporter: BY DAY

THREE OF THE FAST, DOCTORS

SAID HIS HEART WAS

RETURNING TO ITS NORMAL

SIZE AND FUNCTIONING AT

80%.

THE DOCTORS -- THEY

WERE, LIKE, WE DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO SAY.

WE CANNOT EXPLAIN THIS.

HIS HEART IS FINE.

THEY SAID, WE CAN'T

EXPLAIN THIS.

I KEPT SAYING, IT'S GOD.

Reporter: EVENTUALLY,

DOCTORS PERFORMED HEART

SURGERY TO IMPLANT A

DEFIBRILLATOR, AND THEN

STEVEN WAS RELEASED TO

BEGIN REHAB.

SOON HE WAS SPEAKING.

HE SAID, WHERE IS BRIE,

HIS SISTER.

AND WHEN I STARTED

TALKING, THAT WAS ALCOHOL ACTUALLY

HIS FIRST WORDS.

ANY LITTLE PROGRESS HE

MADE -- WRITING THIS

NAME -- EVEN THOUGH HE

WOULD WRITE HIS NAME

BACKWARDS -- HE HAD TO

LEARN TO BRUSH HIS

TEETH -- EVERY STEP HE

MADE WAS JOY.

Reporter: NEARLY TWO

MONTHS AFTER HIS HEART

ATTACK, STEVEN WENT HOME.

IT'S SO GOOD.

HE HAD BEEN THERE FOR 55

DAYS.

JUST TO HAVE HIM HOME, AND

WE CAN TAKE CARE OF HIM.

SO AS A FAMILY, WE WORK TO

TRY TO HELP STEVEN TO

WHERE HE NEEDS TO BE.

Reporter: STEVEN

DOESN'T REMEMBER WHAT

HAPPENED THAT DAY ON THE

FOOTBALL FIELD, BUT ONE

PART OF HIS RECOVERY IS

UNFORGETTABLE.

I REMEMBER A FEW OF MY

FRIENDS AND CLASSMATES,

AND THEY WERE ALL IN MY

HOSPITAL, IN MY ROOM,

PRAYING FOR ME.

IT MADE ME FEEL LOVED.

Reporter: STEVEN

CONTINUED TO MAKE STEADY

PROGRESS WHILE UNDERGOING

THERAPY FOR SPEECH AND

MEMORY.

ALTHOUGH HE STILL FACES

SOME CHALLENGES, TAMMIE

SAYS HE IS FULLY

FUNCTIONAL.

THEY SHARE MORE OF THEIR

TESTIMONY IN THEIR BOOK

CALLED "SLAM-DUNK."

IT'S LIKE I'M A NEW

PERSON PUT ON THIS EARTH.

THE POWER OF PRAYER IS

REAL.

WE WOULDN'T BE HERE

TODAY IF IT WASN'T FOR

GOD.

PRAYER WORKS.

PRAYER WORKS.

HE WANTS US TO TRUST

HIM EVEN WHEN YOU CAN'T

SEE IT AND IT DOESN'T LOOK

GOOD, ALL HE WANTS US TO

DO IS TRUST HIM AND HAVE

FAITH.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IT

IS ONE THING TO TALK ABOUT

THE POWER OF GOD, TO TALK

ABOUT HEALING, TO TALK

ABOUT THE POWER OF PRAYER.

IT'S ANOTHER THING WHEN

YOU HAVE WALKED DOWN THOSE

LANES OF LOSS AND NEAR

DEATH AND MEDICAL

MYSTERIES AND BRAIN DAMAGE

AND THINGS THAT PEOPLE

CAN'T EXPLAIN.

BUT WHEN GOD INTERVENES --

I'LL TELL YOU, YOU CAN

HEAR IT IN EVERY ONE OF

THE VOICES OF THOSE PEOPLE

WHO TALKED, FROM DOCTORS

TO FAMILY MEMBERS TO

COACHES AND FRIENDS.

THEY SEE GOD DIFFERENTLY

BECAUSE THEY HAVE SEEN HIS

HAND AT WORK.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

TODAY.

THERE ARE MANY OF YOU I

KNOW HAVE NEEDS IN YOUR

LIFE RIGHT NOW.

I GUESS WE ALL HAVE NEEDS

IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

LET'S DO WHAT HIS MOM DID.

LET'S JUST LINK ARMS

TOGETHER AND LIFT OUR

VOICES TO HEAVEN.

LET'S ASK ON BEHALF OF

PEOPLE IN NEED FOR GOD TO

DO SOMETHING MIRACULOUS.

Gordon: LORD, WE LIFT

THE NEEDS TO YOU AS PEOPLE

ARE IN NEED.

WE JUST COME TO YOU AND WE

ASK, AS YOU'VE COMMANDED

US TO PRAY, THAT YOU'RE

WILL WOULD BE DONE ON

EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

AND IN HEAVEN, THERE IS

NOBODY IN A COMA.

THERE IS NOBODY HAVING A

HEART ATTACK.

THERE IS NOBODY INFIRMED.

THERE IS NO ONE GRIEVING.

THERE IS NO LACK.

FOR WE HAVE ALL THAT WE

NEED FROM YOU.

SO, LORD, WE SEE THAT AND

WE SEE THAT THAT'S YOUR

WILL.

AND SO WE ASK IN

ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR WILL,

AND WE ASK THAT YOUR WILL

WOULD BE DONE ON EARTH

NOW, AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.

SO STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND

TO DO WONDERS, TO DO

MIRACLES, TO CHANGE

PEOPLE'S LIVES, TO RESTORE

FAMILIES, AND THAT RESTORE

HEALTH TO THOSE WHO ARE

SICK.

WE ASK IT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

SPEAK THROUGH US, LORD

GOD.

SPEAK THROUGH US.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU HAVE

TREMENDOUS JAW PAIN IN THE

RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR JAW.

AND THERE IS A CLICK THAT

GOES WITH IT.

IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR

YOU TO CHEW.

IT'S EVEN DIFFICULT FOR

YOU TO OPEN YOUR MOUTH.

AND SO GOD IS JUST SAYING

TO YOU RIGHT NOW, BE

HEALED.

HE IS CALLING YOU BY NAME,

JEAN.

BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME, AND BE RESTORED.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE, OPEN YOUR MOUTH

NOW AND RECEIVE HEALING

INTO THAT.

RECEIVE COMPLETE

RESTORATION.

WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY THEY

CAN'T FIX, GOD IS FIXING

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEBODY ELSE, YOU'VE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH A VERY,

VERY SERIOUS LUNG

CONDITION, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO KNOW IT IS YOU

BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW THE

NAME OF YOUR CONDITION,

BUT DOCTORS HAVE TALKED

ABOUT THIS WEBBING THAT IS

FORMING IN YOUR LUNGS THAT

IS NOT NORMAL.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOUR LUNGS ARE BEING

COMPLETELY CLEANED UP.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE AS

FRESH AS A BABY'S.

TAKE THAT DEEP BREATH

YOU'VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO

TAKE.

NORMALLY WHEN YOU DO THAT,

YOU WOULD COUGH.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO COUGH

NOW.

YOUR LUNGS ARE CLEAR IN

JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: AS TERRY WAS

SAYING THAT, I GOT A

PICTURE OF YOUR THE INSIDE

OF YOUR LUNG, LIKE IT WAS

BEING SHREDDED, WHERE IT

WAS LOSING AND TEARING.

GOD IS ABLE, AND RIGHT NOW

JUST RECEIVE IT.

TAKE THAT DEEP BREATH THAT

YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO

TAKE.

DON'T BE AFRAID OF IT.

IT IS NOT GOING TO CAUSE

YOU THE PAIN IT HAS CAUSED

IN THE PATH.

TAKE THAT DEEP BREATH AND

RECEIVE IT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

LORD, WE THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR THE

WONDERFUL MIRACLES YOU'RE

DOING, HOW YOU'RE

RESTORING LIVES, FOR YOU

ARE THE SAME YESTERDAY,

TODAY, AND FOREVER.

WE THANK YOU FOR IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Gordon: IF YOU NEED A

HEALING, WE'RE HERE FOR

YOU.

IF YOU NEED ANSWERS TO

PRAYER, WE'RE HERE FOR

YOU.

IT IS OUR HONOR AND

PRIVILEGE TO PRAY FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

AND IF YOU'VE EXPERIENCED

A MIRACLE, LET US KNOW.

WE WANT TO TELL YOUR

STORY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

CALL: 1-800-700-7000.

> WELL, STILL AHEAD, THE

STORY OF NOAH'S FLOOD

ISN'T JUST FOR SUNDAY

SCHOOL.

IT CAN BE THE KEY TO

UNDERSTANDING END-TIMES

SIGNS.

DAVID PARSONS JOINS US

NEXT TO EXPLAIN.

STAY WITH US.

Gordon: FOR YEARS,

DAVID PARSONS HAD STUDIED

END-TIME PROVINC PROPHECY, AND HE

SAYS YOU NEED TO GO ALL

THE WAY BACK TO THE TIME

OF NOAH.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: HOLLYWOOD

CONTINUES TO MAKE MOVIES

ABOUT IT, AND CHILDREN'S

BOOKS ARE FILLED WITH

DRAWINGS OF ANIMALS

FLOATING ON HIGH WATERS.

DAVID PARSONS IS A MIDDLE

EAST SPECIALIST, WHO'S

COMMENTARY HAS BEEN

PUBLISHED WORLDWIDE.

AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN

FASCINATED BY THE FLOOD.

HE SAYS THERE IS MORE TO

IT THAN JUST 40 DAYS AND

NIGHTS OF RAIN.

IN HIS BOOK, "FLOODGATES,"

HE SHARES WHAT HAPPENED IN

THE TIME OF NOAH AND WHY

THIS BIBLICAL EVENT IS SO

IMPORTANT TO US TODAY.

Gordon: WELCOME TO

THE SHOW.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

WITH US.

THANK YOU, GORDON.

Gordon: YOU SAY THAT

NOAH'S ARK -- THE MODERN

DAY VERSION OF IT IS THE

STATE OF ISRAEL.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

THE LORD IS RIGHTEOUS.

HE IS THE GOD OF LOVE.

HE IS ALSO HOLY.

HE LASHES OUT AT SIN.

AND THE TWO MEET IN HIS

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

GOD IS ALWAYS FAIR WHEN HE

JUDGES.

HE ALWAYS GIVES WARNING.

AND THE ARK WAS THE MOST

CLEAR, OBSERVABLE,

UNMISTAKABLE SIGN TO THE

ANCIENT WORLD THAT WAS

ABOUT TO BE JUDGED.

AND FOR THE FLOOD ANALOGY

TO BE COMPLETE, AS JESUS

SAYS, AS IN THE DAYS OF

NOAH, SHALL BE THE COMING

OF THE SON OF MAN.

THERE NEEDS TO BE

SOMETHING IN THE EARTH

THAT ALL MEN CAN LOOK AT

AND SAY, THIS IS OUR

WARNING.

I BELIEVE THE BUILDING UP

OF ZION, THE RESTORATION

OF ISRAEL, IS THE MOST

CLEAR, UNMISTAKABLE SIGN

TO OUR GENERATION THAT

WE'RE ABOUT TO BE JUDGED.

THE BOOK OF PSALMS SAYS,

WHEN THE LORD SHALL BUILD

UP ZION, HE WILL APPEAR IN

HIS GLORY.

THE BOOK OF ISAIAH TALKS

ABOUT THE RESTORATION OF

ISRAEL, AND THIS IS IN THE

DAYS OF NOAH TO ME.

THAT'S THE ONLY PLACE IN

THE OLD TESTAMENT WHERE

THIS NEW TESTAMENT PHRASE

IS USED, VERY PROPHETIC.

SO IT IS A CLEAR SIGN.

Gordon: ARE WE

READING THAT SIGN?

LOOK, WE'VE HAD OVER

100 YEARS NOW OF THE JEWS

RETURNING TO ISRAEL.

70 YEARS NOW THE

RESTORATION OF ISRAEL,

AGAINST THE TIDE OF

HISTORY, AGAINST ALL SORTS

OF OPPOSITIONS AND

CHALLENGES, LIKE THE

HOLOCAUST, AND WARS AND

TERRORISM, AND ROCKET WARS

NOW, AND YET ISRAEL SEEMS

TO BE ON THIS UPWARD

TRAJECTORY.

THE TIME OF GOD'S

JUDGMENTS ON ISRAEL ARE

OVER.

IT IS A TIME OF FAVOR.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT

EVERYTHING IS A BED OF

ROSES.

THEY STILL HAVE A WAR

EVERY 10 YEARS OR SO, BUT

THEY ALWAYS COME OUT

VICTORIOUS.

I THINK IT WILL BE THIS

WAY UNTIL THE LORD COMES.

BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT

THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS

ABOUT ISRAEL AND ITS

STRUGGLES.

IT LEADS THE NEWS NEARLY

EVERY DAY.

AND SO NO ONE HAS ANY

EXCUSE, WHEN THE DAY COMES

THAT GOD JUDGES US, THE

SIGN HAS BEEN THERE.

IT IS ALL THROUGH HIS

WORD, FROM OLD TESTAMENT

INTO NEW TESTAMENT.

IT IS IN OUR NEWSPAPERS

AND ON THE TELEVISION ALL

THE TIME.

IT IS A WONDERFUL THING TO

THINK ABOUT, BUT IT ALSO

HAS AN OMINOUS SIDE.

Gordon: LET ME ASK

YOU A QUESTION THAT IS NOT

IN THE BOOK -- I'VE SAID,

IF YOU WANT A SAFE PLACE

IN THE EARTH TODAY, GO

MOVE TO ISRAEL.

IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT

NATURAL DISASTERS,

EARTHQUAKES, TYPHOONS AND

ALL OF THAT, GO MOVE TO

ISRAEL.

DOES THAT GO ALONG WITH

THIS ARK ANNUA ARK ANALOGY?

SHOULD WE, AS CHRISTIANS,

SAY, IF I WANT TO BE

SAVED, SHOULD WE BE IN

ISRAEL?

THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF

FLOOD ILLUSIONS IN THE

HEBREW PROPHETS.

THAT'S WHY JESUS IS ABLE

TO SAY THE LAST DAYS OF

JUDGMENT ON THE EARTH IS

GOING TO BE LIKE THE DAYS

OF NOAH.

AND THERE ARE CERTAIN

FLOOD ILLUSIONS THAT TELL

THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT

I'LL PRESERVE YOU AS IF IT

IS NOAH AND HIS FAMILY.

I THINK FOR THE JEWISH

PEOPLE, THE NATION OF

ISRAEL IS A SORT OF ARK

FOR THEM.

AND IT'S QUITE

INTERESTING, BY NECESSITY

THEY'VE HAD TO BUILD THE

IRON DOME, WHICH IS FOR

SHORT-RANGE MISSILES, THE

ARROW 3, THE PATRIOT 3 --

THEY'RE ALMOST LIVING

UNDER THIS SECURITY BUBBLE

THAT NO OTHER NATION HAS.

AND GOD HAS ALWAYS BROUGHT

THEM THROUGH IT.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THERE IS

NOT BLOODSHED AND THE

ENEMY TRYING TO FIND THE

CHINKS IN THE ARMOUR.

THEY GET THROUGH A LITTLE,

BUT SOMEHOW THEY'VE STAYED

AHEAD OF IT.

BUILDING A WALL TO STOP

SUICIDE BOMBERS --

Gordon: HAVE YOU

MOVED THERE?

I'VE BEEN THERE 20

YEARS.

IT IS A REAL PRIVILEGE.

I FIRST VISITED IN 1982,

AND I'VE LIVED THERE SINCE

1987.

Gordon: WHAT IS IT

LIKE BEING A CHRISTIAN IN

ISRAEL?

YOU'RE IN THE LAND

WHERE IT ALL HAPPENED, AND

IT IS QUITE AN HONOR TO

LIVE THERE.

THE NUMBER OF EVANGELICALS

IS GROWING.

THE MESSIANIC BODY, EVEN A

LOT OF ARAB CHRISTIANS.

WHEN I FIRST WENT, THERE

WAS A FREEDOM IN THE EARLY

'80s TO MINISTER.

IT WAS IN EAST JERUSALEM

AND BETHLEHEM, AND I HAD A

CALL TO ISRAEL, WHERE GOD

FIRST SHOWED ME HIS HEART

FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

BUT WITH THE FIRST

INTIFADA, IT WAS HARDER TO

ADMINISTER IN THE ARAB

AREAS, AT LEAST. BUT

THERE IS A FRESH MOVEMENT

OF GOD, WHERE THERE IS A

LOT OF FELLOWSHIP AND

PRAYER, AND WEEKEND

RETREATS BETWEEN JEWISH

AND GENTILE BELIEVERS LIKE

US.

IT IS VERY EXCITING.

Gordon: AND THAT'S A

FULFILLMENT, THE ONE NEW

MAN RISING UP.

YES.

Gordon: IT IS

AMAZING.

WE LIVE IN VERY AMAZING

TIMES.

DAVID'S BOOK IS CALLED

"FLOODGATES," AND IT'S

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

DAVID, THANK YOU FOR BEING

WITH US.

THANK YOU.

Gordon: HERE IS A

WORD FOR YOU FROM MATTHEW:

"FOR THE SON OF MAN WILL

COMECOME IN THE GLORY OF HIS

FATHER WITH HIS ANGELS,

AND THEN HE WILL REWARD

EACH ACCORDING TO HIS

WORKS."

GOD BLESS YOU.

AND WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
