Gordon: SAVING A SICK

AMERICA, WITH THE ULTIMATE

CURE.

RADIO HOST DR. MICHAEL

BROWN SAYS THE DARK DAYS

WE'RE IN NOW ARE THE

PERFECT BACKDROP FOR A

MASSIVE AWAKENING.

HE JOINS US LIVE ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

HOW COULD ANY OF US FORGET

THE IMAGE OF THE 21 COPTIC

CHRISTIANS KNEELING IN

FRONT OF ISIS SOLDIERS ON

A BEACH IN LIBYA.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT

ANYTHING GOOD COULD COME

FROM THEIR HORRIFIC

DEATHS, BUT SOMETHING HAS.

Terry: LAST WEEK

THEIR FAMILIES DEDICATED A

NEW CHURCH IN THEIR HONOR,

NAMING IT THE CHURCH OF

THE MARTYRS OF FAITH AND

HOMELAND.

TAKE A LOOK.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

PART OF THE AMAZING

TESTIMONY OF THIS IS THE

FACT THAT OTHERS HAVE

WITNESSED HOW CHRISTIANS

HAVE RESPONDED TO CHURCH

BURNINGS OR CHURCH

DESTRUCTIONS, BOMBINGS,

OR, OF COURSE, WHAT

HAPPENED ON THE BEACH OF

LIBYA, NOT IN ANGER, NOT

IN ROCK-THROWING AND

KILLING, BUT IN

FORGIVENESS.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

STATEMENT OF WHAT

CHRISTIAN LOVE IS REALLY

ALL ABOUT.

Gordon: ONCE AGAIN,

THE BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS

IS THE SEED OF THE CHURCH.

AND IT HAS BEEN THAT WAY

SINCE ITS FOUNDING.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE TRIBUTE

TO THEM.

AND WE NEED TO HONOR THEIR

MEMORY.

Terry: WOW!

I MEAN, THAT IS -- THAT

PICTURE OF THEM ON THE

BEACH IS INDELIBLY

IMPRINTED INTO PEOPLE'S

MINDS.

WHAT THE ENEMY MEANT FOR

EVIL, GOD WILL WORK FOR

GOOD.

WE HAVE YET TO SEE WHAT

GOOD WILL COME OUT OF THAT

NEW CHURCH ESTABLISHED AND

GROWING AND MINISTERING.

Gordon: MY HOPE AND

MY PRAYER IS IT WILL WAKE

MUSLIMS UP TO WHAT DO THEY

REALLY BELIEVE?

IF THEY BELIEVE CUTTING

SOMEONE'S HEAD OFF IS WHAT

ALLAH REQUIRES, THEN WILL

THEY QUESTION THAT?

AND WILL THEY SEE THAT

THERE IS A MUCH BETTER

WAY?

THERE IS A WAY OF LOVE, OF

FORGIVENESS, AND JESUS

SHOWS US CLEARLY WHAT TO

DO.

WHEN HE HUNG ON THE CROSS,

HE SAID, "FATHER FORGIVE

THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT

WHAT THEY DO."

> ANDREW BRUNSON IS AN

AMERICAN PASTOR WHO HAS

BEEN LOCKED UP IN A

TURKISH JAIL FOR 500 DAYS,

AND NOW COULD SPEND THE

REST OF HIS LIFE IN

PRISON.

HE HAS BEEN HELD WITHOUT

CHARGES, BUT LAST WEEK A

TURKISH COURT APPROVED A

62-PAGE INDICTMENT AGAINST

HIM.

THE CHARGES INCLUDE

MEMBERSHIP IN AN ARMED

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AND

MILITARY ESPIONAGE.

Terry: THE

PROSECUTION IS ASKING FOR

A TOTAL OF 35 YEARS, WHICH

WOULD AFFECTIVELY GIVE THE

50-YEAR-OL50-YEAR-OLD PASTOR A LIFE

SENTENCE.

HIS DAUGHTER, JACLYN,

APPEALED TO THE U.N. HUMAN

RIGHTS COUNCIL IN GENEVA

TO HELP SECURE HER

FATHER'S RELEASE.

SHE RECOUNTED HER VISIT TO

SEE HIM IN PRISON LAST

AUGUST.

TAKE A LOOK.

I KNOW THE ALLEGATIONS

AGAINST HIM ARE ABSURD.

HE IS NOT AN ARMED

MILITANT.

MY FATHER IS A PEACEFUL

PASTOR.

MY FAMILY HAS SUFFERED

GREATLY IN THE LAST YEAR

AND A HALF.

I VISITED MY FATHER LAST

AUGUST, AND WE SOBBED THE

ENTIRE VISIT.

IT WAS HARD TO SEE HIM SO

BROKEN, SO THIN, SO

DESPERATE.

HE WROTE A NOTE LAST WEEK

WHICH SAID, "LET IT BE

CLEAR: I AM NOT IN PRISON

FOR ANYTHING I HAVE DONE

WRONG, BUT BECAUSE OF WHO

I AM, A CHRISTIAN PASTOR.

I DESPERATELY MISS MY WIFE

AND CHILDREN, YET I

BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE:

IT IS AN HONOR TO SUFFER

FOR JESUS CHRIST, AS MANY

HAVE BEFORE ME."

Gordon: HIS TRIAL IS

ON APRIL 16th.

HE IS ASKING FOR BELIEVERS

EVERYWHERE TO PRAY FOR HIS

FREEDOM.

THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR

LAW AND JUSTICE IS HELPING

WITH THE CASE.

BUT THIS IS ONE WHERE

ESSENTIALLY YOU HAVE A

RISING ISLAMIC

DICTATORSHIP IN TURKEY

THAT WANTS TO TURN IT BACK

INTO THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE.

AND IN THAT ANY PASTOR IS

IN DANGER, AND THEY'VE

TAKEN ANDREW, AND THEY'RE

TRYING TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE

OUT OF HIM FOR THE WHOLE

WORLD TO SEE.

THAT THEY ARE FOR ISLAM.

THEY DON'T TOLERATE

CHRISTIAN PREACHING.

AND ALL OF THESE CHARGES

ARE TRUMPED UP.

THERE IS NO BASIS IN FACT

TO SAY HE WAS ENGAGED IN

MILITARY ESPIONAGE.

ON THEIR FACE, THEY'RE

ABSURD, BUT THE PERSONAL

COST TO HIM IS ENORMOUS.

SO LET'S PRAY FOR HIS

RELEASE.

AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY,

LET'S PRAY FOR TURKEY.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

THE SEVEN CHURCHES OF

REVELATIONS WERE.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

THE APOSTLE JOHN, THE

APOSTLE PAUL FOUNDED

CHURCHES.

AND, UNFORTUNATELY, OVER

THE PAST CENTURY -- IT

STARTED WITH ADATUR BACK

IN 1920, AFTER WORLD WAR

I, HE WENT ON A CAMPAIGN

TO ELIMINATE CHRISTIANITY

FROM WITHIN TURKEY.

HE KICKED OUT ALL OF THE

CATHOLICS AND ALL OF THE

GREEK ORTHODOX AND REDUCED

THE CHRISTIAN POPULATION

OF TURKEY TO LESS THAN 1%.

SO LET'S PRAY.

THIS IS WHERE THE FOUNDERS

OF CHRISTIANITY -- OUR

VERY FOUNDATIONS WERE.

AND LET'S PRAY FOR TURKEY.

Terry: WELL, OVER

23 MILLION PEOPLE HAVE

VIEWED A VIDEO OF

5-YEAR-OLD CHLOE LEMON

PROMOTING DOWN SYNDROME

DAY.

HER FAMILY LIVES IN

SCOTLAND.

HER MOM, JAY, POSTED THE

VIDEO TO Facebook AND

WAS OVERWHELMED BY THE

WORLDWIDE RESPONSE.

Gordon: WELL, ONE

MESSAGE SHE RECEIVED STOOD

OUT FROM THE REST.

A PREGNANT WOMAN IN THE

U.S. HAD JUST BEEN TOLD

THAT HER BABY HAD DOWN

SYNDROME.

THE WOMAN WAS SO MOVED BY

THE VIDEO THAT SHE CHANGED

HER MIND ABOUT TERMINATING

THE PREGNANCY.

AND HERE IS THE VIDEO THAT

SAVED A LIFE.

HI, EVERYONE!

[INAUDIBLE]

Terry: IT'S ADORABLE.

Gordon: IT'S

BEAUTIFUL.

Terry: I'VE BEEN

READING SO MUCH LATELY

ABOUT FAMILIES WHO HAVE

FOUND THE JOY AND THE

BLESSING IN HAVING A CHILD

THAT IS BORN WITH DOWN

SYNDROME.

AND THERE SEEMS TO BE AN

ACCEPTANCE HAPPENING IN

OUR SOCIETY THAT WASN'T

THERE BEFORE, HOPEFULLY.

Gordon: AS A RULE,

MOST ATHLETES WILL HIT

THEIR PEAK BEFORE AGE OF

30.

BUT AGE IS JUST A NUMBER

TO 100-YEAR-OLD OROVILLE

ROGERS, AND 102-YEAR-OLD

JULIA HURRICANE HAWKINS.

Terry: LAST WEEK

THESE CENTENARIAN RUNNERS

BROKE WORLD RECORDS IN

TRACK AND FIELD EVENTS.

WATCH CLOSELY BECAUSE

THEY'RE FAST.

Reporter: LANE NUMBER

THREE, WEARING HIS BLUE

JERSEY, 100-YEAR-OLD

OROVILLE ROGERS FROM

DALLAS, A WORLD WAR II

VETERAN, A BOMBER PILOT

AND A COMMERCIAL PILOT.

HANGING UP HIS WINGS AND

LACING UP HIS SHOES.

THIS TIME THE 60-METER

DASH, HIS FAMILY CHEERING

HIM ON.

THE OLDEST MALE RUNNER TO

COMPETE THIS TIME IN THE

60-METER DASH.

HOW GREAT IT FEELS AT

THE AGE OF 100 TO BREAK

FIVE NEW WORLD TRACK

RECORDS, AND TO BRING HOME

THE GOLD.

Reporter: AND HE IS

NOT ALONE.

ON THE RIGHT THERE,

102-YEAR-OLD JULIA

HURRICANE HAWKINS, AS THEY

CALL HER.

GRADUATING FROM L.S.U. IN

1938, NOW THE OLDEST WOMAN

TO COMPETE IN THE U.S.A.

TRACK CHAMPIONSHIPS.

SHE SET A RECORD IN 29.79

SECONDS.

SHE HAS A MESSAGE, TOO.

THE ADRENALIN THAT YOU

GET IS HARD TO EXPRESS,

BUT IT IS A WONDERFUL

FEELING.

Gordon: I MAY HAVE TO

GET BACK ON THE TRACK.

YOU KNOW, I'VE SORT OF

GAVE THAT UP.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE I

USED TO RUN TRACK IN HIGH

SCHOOL --

Terry: CAN WE BOTTLE

THAT?

Gordon: I THINK IT IS

NOT IN A BOTTLE.

Terry: JUST ASKING.

Gordon: I THINK IT

COMES FROM HARD WORK.

YOU'VE GOT TO SHOW UP.

Terry: SOMEBODY TOLD

ME THE OTHER DAY -- I

DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE

OR NOT, THAT OROVILLE DID

NOT START RUNNING UNTIL HE

WAS 80.

Gordon: IF I START

NOW, I CAN CATCH UP?

Terry: THERE IS HOPE.

Gordon: THERE IS HOPE

FOR ME.

I HAD GIVEN UP.

Terry: WE ALL HOPE.

Gordon: GET ME OFF

THE COUCH.

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, HE IS SOUNDING A

WAKEUP CALL TO THE CHURCH

AND SHARING A MESSAGE OF

HOPE FOR DARK TIMES.

DR. MICHAEL BROWN IS HERE

WITH THE PRESCRIPTION TO

SAVE A SICK AMERICA, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

Gordon: IT'S A SAD

REALITY IN THIS COUNTRY,

DIVORCE, SUICIDE,

DEPRESSION ARE ON THE

RISE, WHILE CHURCH

ATTENDANCE IS FALLING.

STILL, DR. MICHAEL BROWN

BELIEVES THIS COULD ALL BE

A SETUP FOR THE GREATEST

MOVE OF GOD IN HISTORY.

Reporter: DR. MICHAEL

L. BROWN IS THE HOST OF

THE NATIONALLY SYNDICATED

RADIO SHOW "LINE OF FIRE."

WHILE MANY AMERICANS

BELIEVE WE HAVE SPIRALLED

INTO MORAL AND CULTURAL

CHAOS, DR. BROWN BELIEVES

OUR NATION IS NOT BEYOND

THE POINT OF RECOVERY.

IN FACT, HE BELIEVES OUR

COUNTRY'S BEST DAYS ARE

AHEAD, BUT WE'LL NEED A

RADICAL MORAL AND CULTURAL

RESOLUTION, BEGINNING WITH

THE CHURCH.

IN HIS BOOK, HE WRITES A

PRESCRIPTION OF HOPE FOR

RECAPTURING AMERICA'S

GREATNESS, AND REVEALS HOW

AMERICA CAN FIND ITS WAY

BACK TO HEALTH,

SPIRITUALLY, MORALLY AND

CULTURALLY.

Gordon: DR. MICHAEL

BROWN JOINS US NOW.

WHY DO YOU FEEL WEE WE'RE ON

THE VERGE OF ANOTHER GREAT

ANAWAKENING?

I FEEL GOD WOULDN'T BE

PUTTING IN THE HEART OF

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL

OVER AMERICA IF HE IS

DETERMINED TO JUST CAST US

OUT.

I BELIEVE WE'RE IN A

CRITICAL STATE.

I BELIEVE THERE IS

JUDGMENT IN OUR LAND, AND

I BELIEVE THAT WE COULD

EASILY FALL OFF THE DEEP

END, AND YET THERE IS THIS

CONTINUAL HOPE THAT GOD IS

GOING TO DO THINGS BEYOND

WHAT WE HAVE SEEN.

I'M REMINDED OF THE STORY

OF TWO SHOE SALESMEN THAT

WENT INTO NEW TERRITORY.

THEIR COMPANIES SENT THEM

OUT TO A POOR COUNTRY, AND

THEY WERE GOING TO LAUNCH

THEIR SHOES THERE.

THE NUMBER ONE SALESMAN

WITHIN MINUTES IS TEXTING,

GET ME OUT OF HERE.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DON'T

WEAR SHOES.

AND THE NUMBER TWO GUY

SAYS, GIVE ME THOUSANDS OF

SHOES.

NOBODY HERE HAS ANY SHOES.

I'M DOING TALK RADIO EVERY

DAY, AND I KNOW THE BAD

NEWS, AND I BELIEVE AS

DIRE AS THINGS ARE, WE

COULD REALLY SEE LIGHT

SHINING BRIGHTLY.

I BELIEVE PEOPLE RECOGNIZE

WE'RE MESSED UP.

I BELIEVE MANY CHURCHES

RECOGNIZE BUSINESS AS

USUAL IS NOT GOING TO DO

IT.

I'M HEAR MORE TALK ABOUT

PRAYER, MORE PRAYER FOR

REVIVAL, MORE OF A BURDEN

TO REACH OUT AND TOUCH THE

LOST WITH THE GOSPEL.

AND I BELIEVE GOD IS THE

ONE INITIATING IT.

Gordon: IS PRAYER THE

REAL KEY?

WHEN I LOOK AT THE HISTORY

OF THE REVIVALS OF THE

PAST, PARTICULARLY THE ONE

UNDER THE SECOND GREAT

AWAKENING, HE SAID PRAYER

WAS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.

HE SAID IF YOU DON'T HAVE

THAT DEEP PRAYER -- THIS

ISN'T JUST, GOD, PLEASE

SEND REVIVAL, BUT DEEP

INTERCESSION FOR EVERY

MEETING, EVERY CITY, EVERY

NEIGHBORHOOD, EVERY

STREET, HE SAID IT'S THE

WATER FOR REVIVAL.

IF YOU'RE NOT HAVING THAT

PRAYER, YOU'RE NOT GOING

TO SUCCEED.

YEAH.

ABSOLUTELY.

LET'S THINK OF THIS ON A

FEW LEVELS.

NUMBER ONE, GOD IS WORKING

WITH US.

JUST LIKE THE GREAT

COMMISSION, HE DOESN'T

SEND AN ANGEL DOWN TO

HEAVEN TO PREACH.

HE SENDS US OUT TO PREACH.

HOW HUNGRY ARE WE?

HOW THIRSTY ARE WE?

LOOK THROUGH THE

SCRIPTURES WHERE GOD SAYS

HE WILL WORK WITH US.

AND AS WE PRAY AND CRY

OUT, HE IS RESPONDING.

AND HERE IS THE OTHER

PART, WHEN YOU HAVE A

MASSIVE MEAL, YOU EAT

UNTIL YOU CAN'T EAT

ANYMORE, AND SOMEONE SAYS,

DO YOU WANT DESSERT, AND

YOU SAY, NO, I'M SO FULL.

WHEN WE'RE SO FULL, I'M

RICH AND IN NEED OF

NOTHING, AND WE DON'T

REALIZE WE'RE RETCHED,

POOR, AND NAKED.

SO WE DON'T HAVE ANY ROOM.

SO THAT PRAYER PREPARES

THE WAY.

AND THEN WE DO OUR OWN

SOUL SEARCHING.

WE REALIZE, I NEED

REVIVAL.

I'M POINTING THE FINGER AT

THOSE SINNERS IN THE

WORLD, AND WHAT ABOUT YOU?

WHAT ABOUT THE WAY YOU

TREAT YOUR SPOUSE?

WHAT ABOUT YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR

KIDS?

WHAT ABOUT YOUR

SUPERFICIALALITY?

SO EVERYTHING STARTS WITH

PRAYER.

THERE IS THE STORY ABOUT

THE OLD EVANGELIST, GYPSY

SMITH, HE SAYS, I TAKE A

PIECE OF CHALK, I DRAW A

CIRCLE ON THE GROUND, AND

I STAND IN THAT CIRCLE AND

I SAY, LORD, REVIVE

EVERYTHING INSIDE THE

CIRCLE.

Gordon: HAVE WE GOT

DISTRACTED WITH POLITICS?

IS THAT PART OF THE

PROBLEM.

WE'VE SAID, WE'VE HAD BAD

DECISIONS COME DOWN FROM

THE SUPREME COURT.

IT SEEMS THEY'RE

LEGISLATING FROM THE BENCH

AND CHANGING OUR CULTURE,

SO WE NEED TO GET INVOLVED

POLITICALLY.

HAS THAT BEEN A MISTAKE?

IT HAS BEEN A MISTAKE

TO THE EXTENT WE HAVE DONE

IT.

TO THE EXTENT THAT THE

MORAL MAJORITY BECAME AN

APPENDAGE TO THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

TO THE EXTENT EVERY TWO

YEARS WE GET MORE WORKED

UP OVER POLITICS THAN WE

GET WORKED UP OVER PRAYER.

WE DIVIDE OVER IT MORE.

WE FOCUS ON IT MORE.

COULD YOU IMAGINE IF

AMERICAN CHRISTIANS PUT AS

MUCH EMPHASIS ON THE GREAT

COMMISSION AS WE PUT ON

POLITICS.

I REALLY BELIEVE AMERICA

COULD BE CHANGED.

IT IS IMPORTANT.

LET'S NOT DOWNPLAY IT.

WHO IS ELECTED NEXT TO THE

SUPREME COURT, IF WE HAVE

ANOTHER VACANCY, THIS IS

MASSIVE.

WE COULD BE IN A WAR, OUR

ECONOMY COULD COLLAPSE --

THIS IS BIG, BUT WE'VE GOT

TO PUT IT IN THE PROPER

PERSPECTIVE.

I BELIEVE WE GET WAY TOO

WORKED UP OVER IT.

NOW WE'RE MASSIVELY

DIVIDED OVER IT.

THERE ARE MANY CHURCHES

WHO CAN'T EVEN SAY THE

WORD TRUMP, PRO OR CON, OR

OBAMA.

IF WE WERE AS PASSIONATE

ABOUT JESUS AND THE GOSPEL

AS WE ARE ABOUT POLITICS,

THINGS WOULD BE DIFFERENT.

Gordon: HAS

CHRISTIANITY GOTTEN A BAD

NAME?

DO WE HAVE -- I DON'T

KNOW, IT'S TRITE TO SAY IT

IS A P.R. PROBLEM, BUT I'M

CONCERNED THE RISE OF

NEGATIVE MESSAGING AROUND

THE WORD "CHRISTIAN," AND

PARTICULARLY THE WORD

"EVANGELICAL."

IT SEEMS TO BE A BAD WORD

THESE DAYS, AND PEOPLE ARE

SAYING, I DON'T WANT TO BE

AROUND THAT.

HOW DO WE DEAL WITH THAT?

WELL, LET'S BE HONEST

WITH IT.

I THINK PART OF IT IS THAT

THE WORLD ALWAYS HATES THE

CHURCH, AND THAT AS FAR

BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER, I

WAS SCORNED FOR BELIEVING

WHAT I BELIEVED AND MOCKED

FOR STANDING WHAT I STOOD

FOR.

WHAT YOU'VE DONE AND WHAT

YOUR DAD HAS DONE, WE'RE

ALWAYS GOING TO BE MOCKED

FOR THAT.

BUT THEN THERE IS ANOTHER

PART, WHICH IS: WE'VE HAD

TOO MANY SCANDALS.

IT SEEMS LIKE THE

STANDARDS OF THE WORLD ARE

VERY SIMILAR TO THE

STANDARDS OF THE CHURCH.

SO WE'VE BROUGHT IT ON

OURSELVES, AND THEN TO

WHATEVER EXTENT, IT IS

PERCEIVED THAT WE GIVE

CARD BLANCCARTE BLANCHE APPROVAL TO

THE PRESIDENT.

WE'RE GOING TO BE

ATTACKED, BUT THAT IS PART

OF THE WORLD HATING THE

GOSPEL, HATING THE TRUTH.

WE DON'T CELEBRATE BRUCE

JEJENNER AS WOMAN OF THE

YEAR AND CELEBRATE

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, SO

WE'RE GOING TO BE HATED.

WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS

CLEAN HOUSE.

WE HAVE TO GET HONEST

BEFORE GOD AND SAY, HEY,

WE DESERVE THAT, BUT WE'RE

GOING TO SHOW YOU A BETTER

WAY BECAUSE OUR FAITH IS

REAL.

BECAUSE JESUS IS THE ONLY

HOPE OF THE NATION, AND

THEREFORE WE ARE GOING TO

SHOW WHAT THE GOSPEL IS

REALLY ABOUT.

AND IF YOU CALL US

EVANGELICALS OR CHRISTIANS

OR FOLLOWERS OF JESUS,

WE'RE GOING TO DEMONSTRATE

A BETTER WAY.

Gordon: WHAT WOULD

YOU TELL PEOPLE WATCHING

RIGHT NOW IS THE FIRST

STEP THEY SHOULD TAKE?

THE FIRST STEP IS,

LORD, WHAT ABOUT MY LIFE?

BIG WORLD, BIG PROBLEMS,

CAN'T SOLVE THEM OVER

NIGHT.

WHAT ABOUT MY LIFE?

WHAT CAN I DO TO LIVE AS A

DISCIPLE?

WHAT CAN I DO TO GET

RIGHTLY PLUGGED INTO GOD

IN MY OWN LIFE?

HOW IS MY OWN WALK WITH

GOD?

HOW IS MY OWN COMMITMENT

TO THE LORD?

DOES MY HEART REFLECT THE

WORLD OR DOES IT REFLECT

THE THINGS OF GOD?

DO I LOVE WHAT GOD LOVES

AND HATE WHAT HE HATES?

TAKE INVENTORY OF YOUR OWN

LIFE, BUT NOT IN A

SELF-CONDEMNING WAY

BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOVING

FATHER.

AND SAY, FATHER, I WANT TO

BE HONEST.

IT'S LIKE GETTING YOUR

PHYSICAL, LET'S CHECK OUT

EVERYTHING FROM HEAD TO

TOE.

LET'S DO A PHYSICAL EXAM

BUT IN THE SPIRIT ON

OURSELVES.

START WHERE WE ARE, AND

GOD WILL HELP US CHANGE.

Gordon: THAT PRAYER

OF DAVID, IF THERE IS ANY

SECRET WAY IN ME, REVEAL

IT.

ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO

COME IN AND LOOK.

YEAH.

Gordon: REVIVE ME.

I LIKE THE IMAGE, DRAW A

CIRCLE, STAND IT IN, AND

SAY, OKAY, BRING REVIVAL

RIGHT HERE.

REVIVE ME AND LET ME BE A

LIGHT FOR YOU.

ABSOLUTELY.

THAT'S WHERE IT STARTS.

Gordon: THE BOOK IS

CALLED "SAVING A SICK

AMERICA: A PRESCRIPTION

FOR MORAL AND CULTURAL

TRANSFORMATION," AND IT'S

AVAILABLE NATIONWIDE.

AND, DR. BROWN, THANK YOU

FOR BEING WITH US.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU.

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, HER PAIN WAS BAD,

AND HER FEAR WAS WORSE.

I SAID, OH, I DON'T

WANT THIS TO KEEP

HAPPENING.

IS THIS GOING TO HAPPEN

ALL OF THE TIME?

SO IT WAS VERY, VERY

SCARY.

Terry: WATCH HOW SHE

WAS INSTANTLY HEALED.

PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU, SO DON'T

GO AWAY.

Terry: IMAGINE NOT

BEING ABLE TO TALK OR TAKE

A BITE OF FOOD.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO

LUANN BOLTS, WHEN HER JAW

LOCKED UP RIGHT IN THE

MIDDLE OF A MEAL.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: WHAT BEGAN

AS AN ENJOYABLE EVENING

OUT WITH FRIENDS ENDED

WHEN LUANN BOLTS TOOK HER

FIRST BITE.

I CAN'T BRING MY JAW

DOWN ON THE RIGHT SIDE.

IT WON'T CLOSE.

IT JUST WAS REALLY

FRUSTRATING.

I JUST SAT.

I DIDN'T DO A LOT OF

TALKING.

I JUST SAT AND TRIED TO

EAT, AND IT WAS REALLY

HARD TO DO.

AND IT WAS HURTING.

AND IT WAS, LIKE, I'VE GOT

TO BE ABLE TO CLOSE MY

MOUTH.

LORD, HELP ME.

Reporter: LUANN WAS

ABLE TO FINISH EATING ONCE

HER JAW RELAXED, BUT THE

NEXT DAY IT HAPPENED

AGAIN.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I'M

JUST STOPPED BECAUSE IT IS

LOCKED.

I CAN'T DO ANYTHING WITH

IT.

I WAS TRYING TO MOVE IT,

BUT IT WASN'T WORKING

RIGHT.

AND IE I SAID, I DON'T WANT

THIS TO KEEPING HAPPENING.

I CAN'T GET MY MOUTH

CLOSED.

Reporter: THE JAW

PAIN CONTINUED INTO THE

DAY AND INTO THE NIGHT.

AND THEN THIS THOUGHT

COMES, OKAY, IS THIS GOING

TO HAPPEN ALL THE TIME?

IT WAS VERY, VERY SCARY.

Reporter: THE

FOLLOWING MORNING LUANN

AND HER HUSBAND, WALLY,

TURNED ON "THE 700 CLUB."

IN MY HEART, I LOOKED

TO THE LORD AND I SAID,

LORD, WHEN THEY HAVE THE

PRAYER TIME, PLEASE HAVE

THEM TALK ABOUT MY JAW AND

HEAL ME.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH

YOUR JAW AND YOU DIDN'T

HAVE THIS YOUR WHOLE LIFE.

BUT RECENTLY IT LOCKED ON

YOU, AND IT REALLY IS NOT

JUST PAINFUL, BUT THERE IS

DISCOMFORT WITH EATING.

I THOUGHT, OH, THAT'S

ME.

Terry: GOD IS HEALING

THAT.

YOU'LL FEEL THAT POP AND

IT WILL RELEASE.

I SAID, OH, GOD, THANK

YOU SO MUCH.

OH, THANK YOU, LORD, YOU

DID IT.

AND WALLY IS SITTING NEXT

TO ME, AND I SAID,

WALLY -- AND HE SAID,

YOU'RE HEALED.

THEY JUST TALKED ABOUT THE

PROBLEM.

HE DID A MIRACLE, AND TO

HAVE IT JUST LIKE THAT IS

REALLY ASTOUNDING TO ME.

I DIDN'T HAVE TO ENDURE

THIS FOR DAYS AND WEEKS

AND MONTHS.

Reporter: NOW LUANN

ENJOYS EVERY BITE SHE

EATS, PAIN AND WORRY-FREE.

I HAVE NEVER HAD

ANOTHER OCCURRENCE OF IT.

I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THAT

WORD OF ACKNOWLEDGE.

IT IS SO AWESOME THAT IT

WAS SO FAST.

I'M JUST PRAISING GOD.

I KNOW HE HEARS OUR

PRAYERS.

AND HERE HE ANSWERS

THROUGH SOMEBODY ELSE,

LIKE THIS.

I GET SO EXCITED ABOUT

THAT.

I'M SO THANKFUL AND

GRATEFUL, NOT ONLY FOR

MYSELF, BUT FOR ALL OF THE

OTHER PEOPLE.

Terry: DON'T YOU LOVE

HOW GOD KNOWS OUR NEED,

HOW HE KNOWS OUR NAME, HOW

HE IS RIGHT THERE WITH US,

RIGHT IN THE MIDST OF

EVERYTHING WE'RE GOING

THROUGH.

I KNOW MANY OF YOU ARE

SAYING, PLEASE PRAY TODAY

AND PLEASE ASK GOD TO MAKE

A DIFFERENCE IN MY NEED,

IN MY LIFE.

AND WE WANT TO DO THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

GOD KNOWS YOUR NAME.

HE UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH.

WE WANT TO PRAY AND ASK

HIM TO SPEAK LIFE INTO THE

MIDST OF YOUR NEEDS.

SO LET'S PRAY.

Gordon: LORD, WE JUST

COME TOGETHER IN

AGREEMENT.

AND WE COME TOGETHER IN

AGREEMENT WITH THOSE WHO

NEED AND ARE ASKING YOU

FOR A MIRACLE TODAY.

AND WE JUST AGREE WITH

THEM, AND WE CLAIM YOUR

WORD: WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING,

IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM

BY MY FATHER IN HEAVEN.

SO WE RECEIVE YOUR WORD.

WE RECEIVE YOU IN YOUR

WORD, FOR YOU ARE THE

WORD.

AND WE BELIEVE NOW

TOUCHING.

IN JESUS' NAME BE HEALED

AND BE MADE WHOLE.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU SAW

THAT STORY AND YOU'VE GOT

SEVERE INFECTION ON BOTH

SIDES OF YOUR MOUTH, ABOVE

THE TEETH, AND IT HAS GONE

INTO THE BONE AND THE

SINUS CAVITY, AND YOU'RE

DEEPLY WORRIED ABOUT

LOSING TEETH.

SOME TEETH ARE ALREADY

LOOSE.

GOD IS HEALING YOU YOU.

YOU.

HE IS ABLE TO LOCK INTO

PLACE THE TEETH RIGHT NOW.

HE IS ABLE TO TAKE AWAY

THE INFECTION NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE

RESTORED AND BE EVERY BIT

WHOLE FROM THIS MOMENT

FORWARD.

RECEIVE IT NOW.

TERRY?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE AN

ISSUE WITH YOUR STOMACH.

EVERY TIME YOU EAT YOU GET

THESE PIERCING PAINS IN

YOUR STOMACH.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE

ULCERS OR WHAT IT IS, BUT

JUST KNOW GOD IS HEALING

THAT FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO DIGEST

YOUR FOOD AND EAT ANYTHING

YOU WANT, AND THAT PAIN IS

GONE IN JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS A

WOMAN NAMED SUZANNE, AND

YOU'VE LOST YOUR EYEBROWS,

AND YOU'RE GOING, IS THIS

TOO SMALL FOR GOD?

NO, IT IS NOT.

HE'LL ALLOW THEM TO GROW

BACK AND BE FULL ONCE

AGAIN.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN AND AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN HEALED,

CALL US AND LET US KNOW:

1-800-700-7000.

HERE IS A WORD:

"COMMIT EVERYTHING YOU DO

TO THE LORD.

TRUST HIM AND HE WILL HELP

YOU."

GOD BLESS YOU, AND WE'LL
