THEIR STORY OF LIFE ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

ON TODAY'S SHOW, WE'RE

GOING TO BE TAKING

QUESTIONS LIVE FROM YOU.

IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION YOU

WANT ANSWERED, GIVE THAT

NUMBER A CALL:

1-800-700-7000.

888-777-2582.

Wendy: THAT'S IT,

RIGHT ON YOUR SCREEN.

Pat: FIRST IN THE

NEWS, A MESSAGE FROM

PRESIDENT TRUMP TODAY.

THE PRESIDENT SAID ON

TWITTER, THE MISSILES WILL

BE COMING.

Wendy: THAT TWEET

COMES AS THE UNITED STATES

IS GETTING READY FOR A

MILITARY ACTION AGAINST

SYRIA.

AND THIS TIME IT LOOKS

LIKE AMERICA WILL HAVE

SOME HELP FROM ITS ALLIES.

MARK MARTIN HAS THIS

STORY.

Mark: IN A STRATEGY

AGAINST THE SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT, PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS MADE IT CLEAR HE

WANTS A FORCEFUL RESPONSE,

AND THE ADMINISTRATION

SAYS IT HAS SEVERAL

OPTIONS.

THIS TIME AROUND THE

UNITED STATES MIGHT NOT

ACT ALONE.

INSTEAD, GETTING POSSIBLE

SUPPORT FROM FRANCE,

BRITAIN, AND SAUDI ARABIA.

A U.S. OFFICIAL SAYS ONE

OPTION IS HITTING THE

ASSAD REGIME'S COMMAND AND

CONTROL HEADQUARTERS FOR

THE COUNTRY'S MILITARY.

ANOTHER: STRIKE THE

LOCATIONS WHERE CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ARE STORED.

President Trump:

WE'RE MAKING DECISIONS AS

TO WHAT WE DO WITH RESPECT

TO THE HORRIBLE ATTACK

THAT WAS MADE NEAR

DAMASCUS, AND IT WILL BE

MET, AND IT WILL BE MET

FORCEFULLY.

Mark: NIKKI HALEY

TRIED TO SECURE SUPPORT IN

THE U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL,

BUT RUSSIA VOTED NO AND

CHINA ABSTAINED.

SHE REFERRED TO BASHAR

al-ASSAD AS A MONSTER.

THE MONSTER WHO IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE

ATTACKS HAS NO CONSCIENCE,

NOT EVEN TO BE SHOCKED BY

PICTURES OF DEAD CHILDREN.

Mark: AN APPARENT

CHEMICAL ATTACK KILLED

MANY CHILDREN AND DOZENS

OF OTHER PEOPLE IN DOUMA,

OUTSIDE OF DAMASCUS.

REBELS BATTLING ASSAD

CONTROL THE TOWN.

President Trump: THIS

IS ABOUT HUMANITY, WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT HUMANITY,

AND IT CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO

HAPPEN.

Mark: THE SITUATION

PUTS PRESIDENT TRUMP IN

DISAGREEMENT WITH VLADIMIR

PUTIN, WHO ALONGSIDE IRAN

IS THE MOST POWERFUL ALLY

OF ASSAD.

NIKKI HALEY EVEN SAID THEY

HAVE THE BLOOD OF CHILDREN

ON ITS HANDS.

THE ASSAD REGIME SAYS THE

REPORTS ARE NOT TRUE, AND

THE VIDEOS ARE FAKE.

SYRIAN ACTIVISTS RECORDED

RUSSIAN SPECIALISTS

ALLEGEDLY INVESTIGATING

THE ATTACK LOCATION.

FOLLOWING THAT VISIT,

RUSSIA'S FOREIGN MINISTER

SAID THERE WERE NO TRACES

OF CHLORINE OR ANY OTHER

CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE USED

AGAINST CIVILIANS.

BUT DESPITE RUSSIA'S

OBJECTIONS, IT SEEMS CLEAR

THE U.S. AND ITS ALLIES

WILL SOON TAKE ACTION

AGAINST ASSAD'S

GOVERNMENT.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, MARK.

> IN OTHER NEWS, A

SURPRISING ANNOUNCEMENT

TODAY FROM A TOP

REPUBLICAN LEADER IN

WASHINGTON.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THIS

AMAZING REPORT.

Efrem: PAT, HOUSE

SPEAKER PAUL RYAN IS NOT

RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION

THIS YEAR.

HE INTENDS TO FINISH OUT

HIS TERM AND NOT LEAVE

CONGRESS EARLY.

HIS DEPARTURE IS CERTAIN

TO SET OFF A RACE TO

REPLACE HIM AS THE LEADER

OF HOUSE REPUBLICANS AND

POSSIBLY THE NEXT HOUSE

SPEAKER IF THE G.O.P.

KEEPS CONTROL OF THE HOUSE

IN THIS YEAR'S MID-TERM

CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS.

> THE WHITE HOUSE HAS

TAKEN THE POSITION THAT

THE PRESIDENT HAS THE

ABILITY TO FIRE ROBERT

MUELLER.

AGAIN, WE'VE BEEN

ADVISED THAT THE PRESIDENT

CERTAINLY HAS THE POWER TO

MAKE THAT DECISION.

I CAN'T GO ANYTHING BEYOND

THAT.

Efrem: OTHERS HAVE

LONG SAID ONLY DEPUTY

ATTORNEY-GENERAL ROD

ROSENSTEIN CAN ACTUALLY

FIRE MUELLER.

MANY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

HAS SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP

SHOULD NOT FIRE HIM, AND

SOME HAVE INTRODUCED

LEGISLATION TO PROTECT

HIM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN

PARTICULARLY ANGRY WITH

MUELLER'S INVESTIGATION

SINCE THE F.B.I. RAIDED

HIS PERSONAL ATTORNEY'S

OFFICE ON MONDAY.

PAT?

Pat: THE DEAL IS, THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL IS

SUPPOSED TO BE IN CHARGE

OF ALL OF THIS.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL RECUSED

HIMSELF A LONG TIME AGO

BECAUSE HE HAD SOME

INCIDENTAL CONTACT WITH

SOME RUSSIAN ALONG THE

WAY.

HE CERTAINLY IS QUALIFIED

TO COME BACK IN AS

ATTORNEY-GENERAL NOW.

AND IF HE DOESN'T DO IT,

IT SEEMS LIKE TO ME HE

OUGHT TO RESIGN.

BUT RIGHT AFTER HIM,

ROSENSTEIN SHOULD BE TAKEN

OUT.

THE PRESIDENT CAN

CERTAINLY FIRE HIM, OR THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL CAN FIRE

HIM.

BEYOND THAT, THE POLITICAL

FALLOUT ABOUT TAKING

MUELLER OUT IS A DIFFERENT

MATTER.

BUT I STILL THINK THAT

THAT QUERY HAS GONE TOO

FAR.

IT IS A FISHING EXPEDITION

NOW RN SEARCH OF A CRIME.

THERE IS NO CRIME.

NOTHING HAS BEEN

SPECIFIED.

THEY CANNOT FIND A CRIME.

THEY HAVE SPENT MONTHS AND

MONTHS AND MONTHS DIGGING,

AND IT IS DISTRACTING.

WE'VE GOT A PRESIDENT WHO

HAS TO BE FOCUSED ON

SYRIA, FOCUSED ON IRAN,

FOCUSED ON NORTH KOREA,

FOCUSED ON THE THINGS THAT

MATTER IN OUR ECONOMY.

AND WE CAN'T BE DISTRACTED

BY THIS NONSENSE ABOUT

RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN

LAST YEAR'S ELECTION.

IT IS TIME THAT WE GET ON

WITH OUR LIFE.

AND, YOU KNOW, I CAN'T

IMAGINE THESE

CONGRESSIONAL CALLS FOR US

TO CONTINUE THIS NONSENSE.

IT'S GOT TO BE STOPPED,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.

YES, THE PRESIDENT HAS THE

POWER TO FIRE HIM, BUT IT

WOULD BE POLITICAL SUICIDE

IF HE DOES IT.

SO THERE ARE SOME THAT

THINK WHAT MUELLER IS

DOING IS PUSHING TRUMP AS

HARD AS HE CAN, TO GET HIM

TO DO SOME OUTRAGEOUS ACT

THAT WILL INDEED GIVE HIM

GROUNDS TO GO AFTER HIM.

AND THIS IS SOMETHING WE

DON'T WANT TO SEE.

THE PRESIDENT IS DOING A

SUPERB JOB.

THE ECONOMY IS GOOD.

THE MANUFACTURING IS UP.

AND THE TAX CUTS ARE

TAKING AFFECT, AND PEOPLE

ARE HAPPY.

AND THERE IS A GROUP IN

WASHINGTON THAT WANTS TO

DESTROY THE PRESIDENT.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT

THAT IS WHAT IT IS ABOUT.

THEY WANT TO -- IT WAS AN

HONEST ELECTION IN OUR

COUNTRY.

AND THESE PEOPLE, WHO ARE

PART OF THE ESTABLISHMENT,

DON'T LIKE TRUMP.

THEY WANT HIM OUT.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

EFREM?

Efrem: PAT,

Facebook C.E.O. MARK

ZUCKERBERG WILL BE BACK IN

FRONT OF CONGRESS, TALKING

ABOUT A WIDE RANGE OF

ISSUES, INCLUDING

PROTECTING PEOPLE'S

PERSONAL INFORMATION.

MANY AMERICANS FEEL

Facebook AND OTHER TECH

COMPANIES ARE ENGAGED IN A

PATTERN OF BIAS, AND HE

LISTED A WIDE VARIETY OF

EXAMPLES.

IN MAY OF 2016, THEY

REPORTED THAT Facebook

HHAD PURPOSELY AND

ROUTINELY SUPPRESSED NEWS

ABOUT C-PAC, MITT ROMNEY,

THE LOAND MOST RECENTLY BLOCKED

A PAGE WITH 1.2 MILLION

Facebook FOLLOWERS AFTER

DETERMINING THEIR CONTENT

AND BRAND WERE, QUOTE,

"UNSAFE" TO THE COMMUNITY.

I UNDERSTAND WHERE THAT

CONCERN IS COMING FROM,

BECAUSE Facebook IS

LOCATED IN SILICON VALLEY,

WHICH IS AN EXTREMELY

LEFT-LEANING PLACE.

THIS IS A CONCERN I HAVE,

AND I TRY TO ROOT OUT, IS

MAKING SURE WE DON'T HAVE

ANY BIAS IN THE WORK THAT

WE DO.

I THINK IT IS A FAIR

CONCERN --

SO LET ME --

Efrem: SOME IN

CONGRESS HAVE RAISED THE

POSSIBILITY OF REGULATION

OF Facebook AND OTHER

TECH COMPANIES.

> FOR THE FIRST TIME THE

PRESIDENT TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION BLAMED

RUSSIA ON THE UNITED

NATIONS' POWER GRID.

ERIK ROSALES SHOWS US WHAT

IS BEING DONE TO PROTECT

THIS VITAL LIFELINE.

Reporter: WHILE MOST

NEWS ATTENTION REGARDING

RUSSIA FOCUSES ON THE

INTERFERENCE OF THE 2016

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION,

THERE ARE OTHER WAY THE

BEAR IS ATTACKING THE

UNITED STATES.

COMES THIS STARTLING

ACCUSATION: MOSCOW IS

TARGETING AMERICA'S POWER

GRID.

IN PEARL HARBOR WE WERE

ATTACKED WITH TORPEDOS.

I BELIEVE THE NEXT WILL BE

ROLLING BLACKOUTS, WITH

RUSSIANS TURNING OFF OUR

ENERGY.

Reporter: HE SAYS

RIGHT NOW CREDIBLE

INTELLIGENCE SHOWS THAT

THE RUSSIANS ARE INSIDE

OUR POWER GRID, WITH THE

GOAL OF CUTTING POWER, NOT

ONLY CREATING CHAOS, BUT

MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR US

TO RESPOND.

AND THE KREMLIN HAS PROVEN

IT CAN DO IT.

THEY TOOK DOWN POWER

PLANTS INSIDE UKRAINE,

LEAVING THOUSANDS IN THE

DARK.

FROM A PRIVATIZATION

STANDPOINT, PROTECTING THE

GRID FROM CYBER ATTACKS IS

SUBSTANTIALLY HIGH ON OUR

PRIORITY LIST.

Reporter: ENERGY

SECRETARY RICK PERRY TOLD

LAWMAKERS THAT CYBER

ATTACKS WERE, QUOTE,

"LITERALLY HAPPENING

THOUSANDS OF TIMES A DAY."

THEY GET IN BY USING FAKE

MESSAGES THAT COME FROM A

KNOWN CENTER THAT CONTAINS

MALICIOUS LINKS OR

DOCUMENTS.

ONCE INSIDE, HACKERS MOVE

TO GAIN INFORMATION, LIKE

HOW CONTROL SYSTEMS WORK.

PERRY REASSURED LAWMAKERS

THE THREAT IS ON HIS

RADAR.

PART OF HIS EFFORT IS A

NEWLY CREATED OFFICE TO

BOLSTER ENERGY SECURITY

EFFORTS.

WE'RE FORTUNATE WE

HAVEN'T HAD A MAJOR

CONSEQUENCE OF ATTACKS,

AND THUS FAR WE HAVE BEEN

SUCCESSFUL IDENTIFYING

PART OF THIS ANALYSIS,

WHICH INVOLVES MODELING,

INFORMATION SHARING, AND

MONITORING.

Reporter: CONGRESSMAN

BACON ADDS, WE NEED TO LET

THE RUSSIANS KNOW THERE

WILL BE A COUNTER-PUNCH TO

THEIR ACTIONS.

THE TIME TO RESPOND AND

PREPARE IS NOW, NOT A DAY

OR TWO BEFORE WE'RE

ATTACKED.

Reporter: IT IS

CHALLENGING, NOT JUST

BECAUSE THE GRID CONTAINS

SO MANY PHYSICAL AND

COMPUTERIZED COMPONENTS,

BUT ALSO BECAUSE IT MUST

OPERATE 24 HOURS A DAY.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: AND, PAT, THE

THREAT TO THE POWER GRID

IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE LONG

WARNED US ABOUT.

Pat: I HAVE WARNED

BECAUSE IT IS SO REAL.

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, IF

SOMEBODY EXPLODED A THERMO

NUCLEAR DEVICE IN THE

ATMOSPHERE OVER, SAY,

CHICAGO, SAY AT 1500 FEET,

150,000 FEET -- WHEREVER

IT IS -- UP IN THE

ATMOSPHERE AND EXPLODED

THAT THING, IT COULD

LITERALLY KNOCK OUT OUR

GRID ACROSS AMERICA.

AND IT WOULD BE LIKE

NUCLEAR WINTER.

IT WOULD BE HORRIBLE.

WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET

THE RIGHT FOOD.

WE COULDN'T GET -- WELL,

THE BANKING SYSTEM WOULD

SHUT DOWN.

ALL OF THE STOCK

TRANSACTIONS WOULD CEASE,

AND THE NORMAL BUSINESS OF

OUR NATION WOULD BE AT A

STANDSTILL.

NOW, THAT'S A POSSIBILITY

OF SOMETHING THAT COULD

COME FROM A SOLAR BLAST,

THAT WE'VE BEEN TALKING

ABOUT.

IT COULD BE A THERMO

NUCLEAR DEVICE.

BUT WHAT WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT HERE IS JUST NORMAL

HACKING THAT IS GOING ON.

AND THIS HACKING, I MIGHT

ADD -- REGENT UNIVERSITY

NOW HAS A VERY

SOPHISTICATED CYBER RANGE,

AND THIS CAN TRAIN PEOPLE.

AND SO BUSINESSES ARE

SENDING THEIR SO-CALLED

"C" SUITE TO WORK ON THIS

CYBER RANGE TO LEARN HOW

TO COUNTER THESE ATTACKS.

AND THIS DEVICE IS

SUFFICIENT TO SHOW WHO THE

ATTACKER IS, HOW TO

COUNTER IT, AND HOW TO

TRAIN PEOPLE IN TECHNIQUES

OF STOPPING CYBER ATTACKS.

IF YOU'RE INTERESTED, HERE

IS THE NUMBER:

AND YOU CAN TRAIN YOUR OWN

SECURITY TEAM.

THE F.B.I. IS INTERESTED

AND THE NAVY IS

INTERESTED, AND THERE ARE

VARIOUS OTHER BUSINESSES

WHO ARE INTERESTED RIGHT

NOW.

REGENT UNIVERSITY STANDS

READY TO TRAIN THE NEXT

GENERATION OF LEADERS IN

BUSINESS SO THEY WILL NOT

BE SUBJECT TO THIS KIND OF

THING.

> SO, WENDY, WE'RE GOING

TO HELP WHEREVER WE CAN.

Wendy: THAT IS A

FASCINATING MAJOR, TO SAY

THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE

STUDYING, AND WE'VE GOT

IT.

> UP NEXT, PUERTO RICO

WAS DEVASTATED BY TWIN

HURRICANES LAST YEAR.

NOW SEE WHY SOME THERE ARE

CALLING THE STORMS

BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE.

THIS IS ACTUALLY

BRINGING A REVIVAL TO THE

ISLAND.

I THINK PUERTO RICO IS

GOING TO BE A MAIN FOCUS

POINT IN THE CARIBBEAN TO

KEEP SHARING THE GOSPEL

EVEN MORE.

Wendy: SEE HOW THE

CHURCHES ARE HELPING TO

REVITALIZE OF ISLAND, WHEN

WE COME BACK.

Pat: HURRICANE MARIA

DEVASTATED MUCH OF PUERTO

RICO LAST SEPTEMBER.

BUT THE STORM ALSO PAVED

THE WAY FOR A SPIRIT OF

REVIVAL.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

THIS REPORT ON THE GROWTH

OF THE CHURCH IN THIS

SMALL ISLAND.

Heather: PUERTO RICO

HAS BEEN STRIPPED OF SO

MUCH IN THE WAKE OF

HURRICANE MARIA, BUT WHAT

IS FLOURISHING HERE IS THE

CHURCH.

THE STORY OF THE ISOLATED

MOUNTAIN VILLAGE OF COMO

RIO TELLS IT ALL.

GEORGE SANTIAGO GREW UP

HERE, BUT LEFT FOR MORE

OPPORTUNITY IN THE STATES.

LAST SUMMER, HOWEVER, GOD

CALLED HIM BACK TO START A

CHURCH IN HIS HOME TOWN.

AT FIRST, NOTHING SEEMED

TO BE HAPPENING.

WHEN WE CAME HERE IN

JULY 2017, WE DIDN'T HAVE

A CHANCE TO OPEN THE BIBLE

AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO

THE PEOPLE.

Heather: BUT JUST TWO

MONTHS LATER, HURRICANE

MARIA TURNED THIS PRETTY

MOUNTAIN STREAM INTO A

RAGING RIVER, AND THE

PEOPLE OF COMO RIO WERE

PARALYZED.

THEIR TOWN IN SHAMBLES,

AND THEIR ACCESS TO FOOD

AND WATER, GONE.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT

I WAS SEEING.

IT WAS DESTRUCTION

EVERYWHERE.

Heather: SANTIAGO

QUICKLY SPRANG INTO

ACTION, TO FIND RESOURCES

LIKE FOOD, WATER, AND EVEN

WASHING MACHINES, SO

PEOPLE COULD WASH THEIR

CLOTHES.

THESE ACTS OF SERVICE, HE

SAYS, BECAME HIS WAY BACK

INTO THE COMMUNITY AND HIS

PATH TO SHARING THE

GOSPEL.

PEOPLE WERE JUST BLOWN

AWAY, AND ASKING ALL OF

THE TIME, WHY ARE YOU GUYS

DOING THIS?

Heather: SINCE THE

STORM, AT LEAST 50 PEOPLE

HAVE COME TO CHRIST IN

COMO RIO, AND HE HAS

STARTED WHAT HE CALLS A

BABY CHURCH FOR THE NEW

BELIEVERS.

HE PLACED US IN PUERTO

RICO IN THE RIGHT MOMENT,

THE PERFECT MOMENT FOR ONE

CHURCH TO GIVE BIRTH.

Heather: AND SANTIAGO

IS NOT ALONE.

CARLOS RODRIGUEZ OVERSEES

CHURCH PLANTING ON THE

ISLAND FOR THE SOUTHERN

BAPTISTS, AND SAYS MARIA

HAS PAVED THE WAY FOR

ENORMOUS SPIRITUAL GROWTH.

IF YOU HAVE ANY

COMPASSION ACROSS PUERTO

RICO, NO ONE WILL SAY THAT

HURRICANE MARIA WAS A BAD

THING, IN A WAY.

IN THE HUMAN PERSPECTIVE,

OF COURSE.

WE STILL HAVE PEOPLE

WITHOUT POWER.

BUT FROM THE SPIRITUAL

PERSPECTIVE, EVERYONE

SAID, NO.

IT WAS A BLESSING.

Heather: SOUTHERN

BAPTISTS SEE A UNIQUE

OPPORTUNITY RIGHT NOW.

THEY'RE PLANTING THREE NEW

CHURCHES THIS YEAR, AHEAD

OF SCHEDULE.

AND THEY'RE POURING

HUNDREDS OF VOLUNTEERS AND

RESOURCES INTO THE

TERRITORY, IN THE HOPE OF

WINNING MORE FOR CHRIST.

PASTOR FARLON RENOSA IS

WORKING WITH MISSION TEAMS

FROM THE STATES, AND

WATCHING PEOPLE COME TO

THE LORD.

THIS IS ACTUALLY

BRINGING A REVIVAL TO THE

ISLAND, JUST BY HELPING

PEOPLE PUT A TENT UP, JUST

CUTTING THE TREES, JUST

STUFF THAT IS SIMPLE,

PROBABLY, FOR MANY OF US,

BUT FOR THEM IT MEANS A

LOT.

*

Heather: IN SAN JUAN,

MARIA DAMAGED PASTOR

GABRIEL PRADA'S CHURCH,

BUT IT DIDN'T STOP CHURCH

MEMBERS FROM DISTRIBUTING

FOOD AND WATER RIGHT AFTER

THE STORM.

WE CONVERTED THE CHURCH

INTO A DISTRIBUTION

CENTER, AND WE MADE SURE

THAT IT WENT OUT AS

QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

Heather: EVEN SIX

MONTHS LATER, PRADA SEES

MARIA AS A HUGE

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

CHURCH.

BUT HE IS ALSO UP AGAINST

SOME TOUGH REALITIES, AS

ARE OTHER CHURCHES.

MORE THAN 100,000 PERIOD

RICANS HAVE LEFT THE

ISLAND SINCE MARIA.

HIS CHURCH HAS LOST PEOPLE

AND OFFERINGS.

BUT RODRIGUEZ SAYS THAT

BELIEVERS MUST SEE EVEN

THE MIGRATION AS AN

OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

GOSPEL.

HE IS TELLING CHURCHES

WITH MEMBERS THAT LEAVE

FOR THE STATES, SEND THEM

AS MISSIONARIES.

IT IS A GAIN, ALWAYS.

TEACH THOSE PEOPLE THAT

THE LORD IS MOVING YOU TO

THE MAINLAND, AND YOU HAVE

TO BE CONNECTED WITH THE

CHURCH.

YOU HAVE TO BE THEIR

LIGHT.

YOU'RE GOING TO BE A

MISSIONARY THERE.

Heather: CHURCHES ARE

ALSO ACUTELY AWARE OF

SEVERE MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS

RIGHT NOW.

SURVIVING THE STORM AND

ITS AFTERMATH HAS LED TO

WIDESPREAD DEPRESSION FOR

MANY, AND A SPIKE IN

SUICIDE ATTEMPTS.

BUT IN THE MIDST OF SUCH

SUFFERING, BELIEVERS ARE

SEEING A HUNGER FOR THE

GOSPEL, AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

THAT BUSINESS AT USUAL

JUST WON'T WORK.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO

BE AN EXPEDENTIAL

EXPLOSION OF MANY NEW

CHURCHES, AND MANY PEOPLE

FOLLOWING GOD'S CALLING TO

PASTOR CHURCHES, TO BE

THAT EVANGELIST THAT GOD

WANTS YOU TO BE.

JUST TO -- I THINK PUERTO

RICO IS GOING TO BE A MAIN

FOCUS POINT IN THE

CARIBBEAN TO KEEP SHARING

THE GOSPEL EVEN MORE.

Heather: LAST MONTH

PASTOR GEORGE BAPTIZED 10

NEW BELIEVERS, AND HE

KEEPS THIS DISPLAY OF

LOCKS, WITH THE KEYS

THROWN AWAY, AS A REMINDER

OF NEW SOULS THAT CANNOT

BE SEPARATED FROM THE LOVE

OF CHRIST.

WE ARE EXPERIENCING

REVIVAL, LITERALLY A

REVIVAL.

WE SEE PEOPLE TIRED AND

HUNGRY.

Heather: FROM THAT

PERSPECTIVE, IT IS A

MOMENT OF HOPE IN PUERTO

RICO RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE AS

THE ISLAND IS REBUILDING

PHYSICALLY, IT IS ALSO

REBUILDING SPIRITUALLY.

REPORTING IN PUERTO RICO,

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, HEATHER.

I MIGHT SAY, OUR

"OPERATION BLESSING" HAS

PUT IN, I THINK, CLOSE TO

A MILLION GENERATORS TO

GENERATE POWER FOR THESE

PEOPLE, AND ALSO TO BRING

CLEAN WATER.

WE HAVE TREMENDOUS CLEAN

WATER PRODUCTION, YOU

KNOW, TO DO THE CHEMICALS

NECESSARY TO PUR PURIFY THE

WATER.

WE'VE BEEN DOING A GREAT

DEAL TO HELP THOSE PEOPLE,

AND THEY'RE VERY

RESPONSIVE AND WONDERFUL

PEOPLE.

THEY'VE BEEN HURT SO

BADLY.

BUT YOU PRAY FOR PUERTO

RICO.

WE WANT TO DO EVERYTHING

WE CAN TO HELP THIS

ISLAND.

WENDY?

Wendy: A BEAUTIFUL

ISLAND, PAT.

> STILL TO COME...TIME

FOR OUR VIEWERS TO CHAT

WITH PAT.

WE'LL TAKE LIVE CALLERS

FROM OUR AUDIENCE, AND IF

YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF

THE SEGMENT, CALL RIGHT

NOW 1-888-777-2582.

SO BE SURE TO STAY TUNED.

Wendy: WE'RE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

TODAY OUR QUESTION AND

ANSWER SEGMENT HAS A

LITTLE TWIST.

WE'RE GOING TO BE TAKING

LIVE PHONE CALLS IN A

LITTLE SESSION WE'VE NAMED

"CHAT WITH PAT."

AND WE HAVE MATT ON THE

PHONE.

HI, MATT.

GOOD MORNING.

Wendy: MATT, WE WOULD

LOVE TO KNOW YOUR QUESTION

FOR PAT.

ABSOLUTELY.

PAT, WE LOVE YOU AND PROUD

OF YOUR LEGACY AND

EVERYTHING THAT YOU'VE

DONE.

AND, SIR, I'D JUST LIKE TO

ASK YOU, WHAT WOULD YOU

SAY TO THIS GENERATION?

I MEAN, YOU ARE LIKE ONE

OF THE GENERALS THAT ARE

LEFT HERE.

WE HAD ORAL ROBERTS AND

THE LATE DR. BILLY GRAHAM.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THIS

GENERATION ABOUT UNITY

BEING SO IMPORTANT, AND

GENERATIONS COMING

TOGETHER, AND ESPECIALLY

WITH RESPECT TO THE END

TIMES AND THE TIMES THAT

WE'RE LIVING AND THE

COUNTRY?

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU

WHAT, WE'VE FACED EVIL

TIMES BEFORE.

AND WE'VE GONE THROUGH

WORLD WAR I AND WORLD WAR

II AND THE COLD WAR AND

ALL OF THE OTHER THINGS,

AND I DO BELIEVE THE ARMY

OF THE LORD IS AS STRONG

AS IT'S EVER BEEN.

I THINK IF YOU RELY ON THE

POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,

BELIEVE IN THE WORD OF

GOD, THERE IS NOTHING THAT

CAN STAND IN YOUR WAY.

IN MY OPINION, AROUND THE

WORLD, RIGHT NOW, THERE IS

ONE OF THE GREATEST

REVIVALS THAT HAS EVER

HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF

MANKIND.

IT MAY NOT BE FELT HERE IN

AMERICA AS MUCH, BUT ALL

AROUND THE WORLD WE ARE

SEEING AN UNBELIEVABLE

HUNGER FOR THE GOSPEL.

AND HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS -- AND I MEAN

THAT LITERALLY -- HUNDREDS

OF MILLIONS ARE COMING TO

CHRIST.

SO THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

MORE EXCITING TIME.

AND THE LORD CAN RAISE UP

AMONG THE YOUNG THE

LEADERS YOU TALKED ABOUT,

THE GENERALS.

WE'LL HAVE SOME

LIEUTENANTS NOW THAT WILL

BECOME COLONELS, AND THEN

THEY WILL BE GENERALS.

I THINK THERE IS GREAT

HOPE.

Wendy: AMEN.

GENERAL PAT.

> WE HAVE ELIZABETH ON

THE PHONE.

WHAT'S YOUR QUESTION FOR

PAT?

HI.

MY NAME IS -- OH, YEAH.

I HAD A QUESTION BECAUSE

MY SON HAS A VERY RARE

GENETIC MUTATION, AND IT

AFFECTS EVERYTHING FROM

HIS GROWTH, HIS MENTAL

DEVELOPMENT, HE HAS MUSCLE

ISSUES, HE HAS SEVERE

AUTISM, ETC.

MY QUESTION IS: BECAUSE

ALOF ALL OF OUR HEALTH

ISSUES, HE ALSO DOESN'T

GET APPROVED FOR ANY KIND

OF GOVERNMENT FUNDING

FINANCIALLY SPEAKING, SO

WE DON'T GET MEDICATION,

BUT I STILL PAY TAXES.

MY HUSBAND AND I WORK.

AND WE PAY INTO THE

SYSTEM, BUT WE DON'T

NECESSARILY GET ANYTHING

BACK OUT OF THE SYSTEM.

AND SO I HAVE FRIENDS THAT

HAVE DONE THINGS LIKE HAD

KIDS AND GOTTEN ON

PROGRAMS LIKE WICK, BUT,

AGAIN, MY SON, WHO IS

SEVERELY DISABLED, DOESN'T

GET ANY HELP.

SO SHOULD I THINK THAT IS

UNFAIR?

DO I HAVE THAT RIGHT?

OR SHOULD I BE HAPPY THAT

I AM ABLE TO HELP HIM?

Pat: I THINK THERE

SHOULD BE HELP.

I PAY IN, YOU PAY IN, TO

MEDICARE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY PRIVATE

INSURANCE, THEY WON'T GIVE

YOU ANY MONEY FROM

MEDICARE.

MEDICARE -- IF YOU HAVE

PRIVATE INSURANCE.

BUT USUALLY IF YOU HAVE

PRIVATE INSURANCE, THEY

WON'T HELP.

BUT I DON'T KNOW --

EXTREME DISEASES LIKE YOUR

SON HAS, THERE SHOULD BE A

PROGRAM FOR THAT.

BUT I DON'T KNOW, FRANKLY.

I DON'T KNOW WHICH ONES

THERE ARE.

BUT I DO BELIEVE THERE IS

EMERGENCY HELP.

THERE HAS TO BE --

I'M SORRY.

I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY,

WE TALKED TO DOZENS OF

SOCIAL WORKERS.

WE HAVE TRIED TO PUT HIM

ON VARIOUS PROGRAMS

BECAUSE OF HOW MUCH MONEY

WE HAVE BEEN SPENDING.

UNFORTUNATELY, THEY SAID

BECAUSE WE OWN A HOUSE, WE

HAVE BEEN DENIED FOR

EVERYTHING.

IT WOULDN'T BE THAT MUCH

OF A PROBLEM BECAUSE WE

HAVE INSURANCE, BUT OUR

INSURANCE IS CONSTANTLY

DENYING US FOR EVERYTHING.

WE USUALLY CAN GET IT

THROUGH, BUT IT CAN TAKE

UP TO MONTHS TO GO THROUGH

THE PROCESS.

Pat: THE AUDIO IS NOT

COMING THROUGH AS CLEAR AS

I WANT.

SORRY.

Pat: I RECOMMEND --

GO TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN,

YOU KNOW, AND SAY, LOOK,

I'VE GOT THIS PROBLEM,

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP

ME?

IF YOU'RE A VOTER IN A

PARTICULAR CONGRESSIONAL

DISTRICT, FIND OUT WHO

YOUR CONGRESSMAN IS, AND

GET HOLD OF THAT

CONGRESSMAN'S O OFFICE, OFFICE, AND

SAY, LOOK, TI LOOK THIS IS MY

PROBLEM, AND SEE WHAT THEY

CAN DO FOR YOU.

THIS IS LITTLE BEYOND MY

SCOPE.

Wendy: I THINK

ELIZABETH MAY BE THE ONE

TO SPEARHEAD THIS.

GO TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN.

WHAT A CUTE, SWEET BOY.

THANKS, ELIZABETH FOR THAT

CALL.

WE NOW HAVE JOHNNIE ON THE

PHONE.

HI, JOHNNIE.

YES.

GOOD MORNING,

DR. ROBERTSON.

THANK YOU FOR TAKING MY

QUESTION.

WE LIVE IN A WORLD TODAY

THAT DUE TO GROWING

TECHNOLOGY, SOCIAL MEDIA,

AND THE GENERAL MOBILITY

OF PEOPLE, WE HAVE MORE

VISIBILITY INTO THE

LIFESTYLES AND THE

MISSTEPS OF OTHERS THAN

EVER BEFORE.

DEPENDING ON OUR POSITIONS

AND THE ROLES IN THE BODY

OF CHRIST, MANY OF US ARE

HELD TO HIGH BIBLICAL

STANDARDS, YET AT THE SAME

TIME WE CAN SEE THAT WE'RE

ALL FALLIBLE HUMANS.

THAT BEING SAID, HOW

SHOULD WE, AS BELIEVERS,

BALANCE THE NEED FOR

PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY

WITH THE ASSURANCE OF THE

PROVISIONS OF GOD'S

BOUNDLESS GRACE?

Pat: JOHNNIE, I THINK

THE BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY WE

HAVE TODAY -- YOU KNOW,

THIS ELECTRONIC THING THAT

HAS BEEN PUT IN OUR HANDS,

YOU KNOW, 50 YEARS AGO WE

DIDN'T HAVE TELEVISION, WE

DIDN'T HAVE SATELLITES, WE

DIDN'T HAVE THE INTERNET

AND ALL OF THESE THINGS.

WE HAVE AVAILABLE TO US A

VAST ARRAY OF DEVICES THAT

CAN COMMUNICATE WITH

PEOPLE.

AND WE ALSO HAVE

TRANSLATIONS,

INSTANTANEOUS TRANSLATIONS

FROM ENGLISH INTO OTHER

LANGUAGES.

SO, FOR EXAMPLE, AT CBN WE

CAN REACH THE WORLD.

I MEAN, THE NUMBERS ARE

SIMPLY STAGGERING.

SO WHAT DO WE AS PERSONAL

INDIVIDUALS?

OF COURSE, WE LIVE OUR

LIFE THE WAY WE'RE

SUPPOSED TO BEFORE THE

LORD.

BUT BEYOND THAT, HE IS

ABLE TO ANSWER OUR

PRAYERS.

AND IF WE PRAY FOR THIS

WORLD AND WE REALLY LAY

HOLD OF GOD -- I WAS

READING TODAY WHERE GOD

WAS TALKING TO SOLOMON.

AND HE SAID, NOW, IF MY

PEOPLE, WHICH ARE CALLED

BY MY NAME, WILL HUMBLE

THEMSELVES AND SEEK MY

FACE AND TURN FROM THEIR

WICKED WAYS, THEY'LL HEAR

FROM HEAVEN AND I WILL

FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL

THEIR LAND.

I THINK THAT THE

INDIVIDUAL PRAYER CAN

BRING ABOUT INCREDIBLE

RESULTS.

> I APPRECIATE IT THOSE

QUESTIONS, AND I LOOK

FORWARD TO SOME MORE.

Wendy: THOSE WERE

GREAT QUESTIONS, AND, AS

ALWAYS, GREAT ANSWERS.

IF YOU HAD A QUESTION AND

YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO GET

THROUGH, GO TO OUR

Facebook PAGE.

LET US KNOW IN THE COMMENT

SECTION WHAT YOU WOULD

LIKE TO ASK PAT.

THE ADDRESS IS

Facebook.com/700club.

> COMING UP, AMERICA'S

TRUE FRONT WAR.

ENEMIES IN AND OUT OF

AMERICA ARE ATTACKING OUR

VALUES.

BUT THERE IS A WAY TO STOP

THEM.

DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF

EXPLAINS WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

BILL HYBEL IS STEPPING

DOWN EARLIER THAN PLANNED

FROM HIS POSITION AS

PASTOR OF WILLOW COMMUNITY

CHURCH.

ACCORDING TO THE CHICAGO

TRIBTRIBETRIBUNE, CLAIMS SURFACED

THAT HE ENGAGED IN

INAPPROPRIATE CONDUCT WITH

WOMEN AT THE CHURCH.

HE SAID CONTROVERSY OVER

THE SITUATION WAS PROVING

TO BE A DISTRACTION FROM

THE CHURCH.

HE FOUNDED WILLOW CREEK 42

YEARS AGO, AND HE HAS

BECOME ONE OF THE

COUNTRY'S MOST INFLUENTIAL

MEGA CHURCH PASTORS.

> PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE OF TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Pat: THE OLD SAYING

GOES, "THE ENEMY OF MY

ENEMY IS MY FRIEND."

FOR AMERICA, TWO

ADVERSARIES ARE JOINING

FORCES TO WAGE WAR AGAINST

OUR WESTERN CULTURE.

AND AS MICHAEL YOUSSEF

EXPLAINS, THERE IS ONLY

ONE WAY TO WIN THIS

BATTLE.

WATCH THIS.

Reporter:

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES ARE

UNDER SIEGE.

AND OUR COUNTRY SEEMS TO

BE MORE DIVIDED THAN EVER

BEFORE.

MICHAEL YOUSSEF IS SOCIAL

AND CULTURAL EXPERT.

AND HE IS ALSO THE PASTOR

OF CHURCH OF APOSTLES IN

ATLANTA, GEORGIA.

HE SAYS THERE ARE FORCES

IN AND OUTSIDE OF OUR

COUNTRY ATTEMPTING TO

DESTROY AMERICA'S

PRINCIPLES.

IN HIS BOOK, "THE HIDDEN

ENEMY," DR. YOUSEF

HIGHLIGHTS THE STEPS TO

BUILD A BRIGHTER FUTURE

FOR US AND THE NEXT

GENERATIONS

GENERATIONS.

Pat: WITH US NOW IS

DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF.

SO GOOD TO BE BACK WITH

YOU, PAT.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

Pat: YOU GREW UP AS

AN EGYPTIAN COPTIC?

YES.

I'M A THIRD GENERATION

PROTESTANT.

AS YOU KNOW, PAT, THE

CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN IN

EGYPT FOR 2,000 YEARS.

AND THEY WERE THE VAST

MAJORITY, 85% OF THE

POPULATION, UNTIL THE

ISLAMIC INVASION COME FROM

ARABIA IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE 700s.

AND THEY INVADED NOT ONLY

EGYPT AND ALL CHRISTIAN

LANDS IN LEBANON AND NORTH

AFRICA.

THAT'S WHAT THEY CALL THE

FIRST JIHAD.

Pat: AND THEY KILLED

PEOPLE RUTHLESSLY, DIDN'T

THEY?

YES.

THEY SAID IF YOU'RE A

CHRISTIAN, YOU CAN PAY

HEFTY TAXES IN ORDER TO

SURVIVE, OR BECOME A DEMI,

BUT IF YOU'RE NOT, OFF

WITH YOUR HEAD.

Pat: IT WAS THAT WAY?

THAT'S HOW IT WAS IN

THE BEGINNING.

AND THEN WHAT THEY CALL

THE SECOND JIHAD, WHICH IS

THE 1400s, WHEN THE

TURKS CAME ALL THE WAY

FROM VIENNA.

AND THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE

THINKING ABOUT THE THIRD

JIHAD, WHICH IS GOING TO

BE TAKING OVER EUROPE.

EVEN THE PRINCE OF SAUDI

ARABIA SAID THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD HAVE DESIGNS

TO TURN EUROPE INTO AN

ISLAMIC CONTINENT BY 2025.

HE IS WARNING THE WEST,

THE PRINCE OF SAUDI

ARABIA.

Pat: WHY DON'T YOU

THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT

THREAT?

IF YOU SAY ANYTHING, THEY

SAY YOU'RE AN ISLAMOPHOBE.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH US?

I RACK MY BRAINS -- I'M

GOING TO BE 70 THIS YEAR,

AND I'VE BEEN LOOKING

AROUND, AND THE ONLY THING

THAT I CAN SAY IS THAT

THERE IS BLINDNESS FALLING

UPON AMERICANS, AND SOME

EVANGELICALS, WHO HAVE

BOUGHT INTO THIS POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS.

AND IT'S LIKE SOMEBODY

SAID TO ME, GOD BROUGHT

YOU OUT OF EGYPT SO YOU

CAN BE A THORN IN THE SIDE

OF AMERICAN EVANGELICALS,

TO WAKE THEM UP AND

REALIZE WHAT AN INCREDIBLE

HERITAGE YOU HAVE, AND YOU

NEED TO PROTECT IT AT ANY

COST, AND DON'T BE

APATHETIC.

IN FACT, THE BOOK, "THE

HIDDEN ENEMY," IS NOT

MILITANT ISLAM.

THE ENEMY IS THE APATHETIC

CHRISTIAN.

THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING WAKE

UP IN TIME, BEFORE IT IS

TOO LATE.

Pat: WHAT IS THIS

HIDDEN ENEMY?

YOU TALK ABOUT LIBERALISM

AND SOME OF THE FORCES

THAT ARE GOING ON, THE

SO-CALLED POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS -- IT IS

ZAPPING OUR SPIRITUAL

LIFE.

ABSOLUTELY.

AND WE'RE INTIMIDATED BY

THAT.

I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

THE ACLU WOULD GO AFTER A

BUNCH OF KIDS IN HIGH

SCHOOL WHO WANT A ROOM TO

PRAY OR HAVE A BIBLE STUDY

BEFORE OR AFTER SCHOOL.

BUT THEY'RE ABSOLUTELY

SILENT WHEN IT COMES TO

MUSLIMS IN SCHOOLS,

WHETHER IT BE IN TEXAS OR

SAN DIEGO, LEAVING CLASSES

AT 12:00 NOON TO HAVE

THEIR AFTERNOON PRAYER.

FEAR -- THE FORMER

PRESIDENT OF B.B.C. WAS

ASKED AS HE WAS RETIRING,

AND THEY SAID, WHY DO YOU

BEAT UP ON CHRISTIANS?

AND YOU NEVER SAY ANYTHING

ABOUT MILITANT ISLAM'S.

AND HE SAID, "WELL,

CHRISTIANS HAVE BROAD

SHOULDERS," AND I'M

QUOTING.

YOU SEE, IT WORKS, AND

THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

FEAR HAD WORKED.

WE SAID WE'LL NOT BE

AFRAID, AND WE'LL DO THIS

AND WE'LL DO THIS, BUT IN

REALITY, IF YOU LOOK AT

ALL OF THE SECULAR

MOVEMENTS AND FEMINIST

GROUPS, THEIR DARLING IS

AN ISLAMIST.

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN MUSLIMS AND

ISLAMISTS.

I HAVE MUSLIM FRIENDS WHO

MET WITH PRESIDENT

EL-SISI FOR THREE HOURS,

A GREAT MAN, AND HE IS

MORE ANTI-MILITANT ISLAM

THAN WE ARE.

AND HE WAS ASKING WHY

AMERICA AND EUROPE WERE

NOT TAKING OUR LEAD AND

CALLING THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD A TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION.

AND I SAID, MR. PRESIDENT,

I BELIEVE IT IS FEAR.

AND SO I THINK WE, IN THE

WEST -- UNLESS WE RISE

UP -- WAKE UP AND RISE UP

IN TIME, OUR CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN ARE GOING TO

HAVE A HARD TIME.

Pat: DO YOU THINK

PRESIDENT OBAMA, BY THE

WAY, WAS TENDING IN THIS

DIRECTION?

HE WANTED TO PUSH AMERICA

AMERICA --

ABSOLUTELY.

HE WAS THE LEADER AND

CHIEF IN THIS.

I MEAN, HE SUPPORTED

WHOLEHEARTEDLY THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD GOVERNMENT IN

EGYPT.

AND ONLY WHEN THAT

GOVERNMENT BROUGHT THE

COUNTRY TO ITS KNEES,

ECONOMICALLY, SOCIALLY,

AND EVERY OTHER WAY, AND

33 MILLION PEOPLE TOOK TO

THE STREETS AS A RESULT OF

THE PRAYERS OF THE

FAITHFUL CHRISTIANS -- AND

HE WAS NOT VERY HAPPY

ABOUT IT.

HE SAID MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

ARE GOOD PEOPLE, AND THEY

WERE KILLING CHRISTIANS IN

THE DAYLIGHT, BURNING

CHURCHES, AND DOING ALL

KINDS OF THINGS, BUT OBAMA

SEEMED TO THINK THAT WAS

OKAY.

Pat: AND THEY THE

BROTHERHOOD WAS THE LEADER

OF THEM ALL --

EXACTLY.

THE GUY WHO BASICALLY

STARTED THIS WHOLE THING

GOT HIS INSPIRATION FROM

THE WAHABIS IN SAUDI

ARABIA.

AND NOW THE AUDI

GOVERNMENT IS DENOUNCING

THE WAHABIS -- THEY DON'T

WANT THEM ANYMORE.

YOU TALK ABOUT HOW GOD IS

BLESSING OVERSEAS, AND I'M

SEEING THINGS LIKE IN

EGYPT AND SAUDI ARABIA,

AND THEY ARE THE ONES WHO

ARE THROWING AWAY THE YOLK

OF JIHADISM.

BUT IN THE WEST WE'RE

WELCOMING THEM.

AND BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS

CREATED THAT VACUUM -- AS

YOU KNOW, ALL OF THE

CHURCHES ARE MUSEUMS.

AND THE BELIEVERS JUST

TOOK, BASICALLY, THEIR

HANDS OFF.

Pat: DID YOU THINK

EUROPE IS GOING TO GO

MUSLIM?

THAT'S WHAT THE PRINCE

OF SAUDI ARABIA SAID,

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, JUST A

COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, IN AN

INTERVIEW.

AND HE SAID, YOU AMERICANS

NEED TO KNOW THAT IT IS

THE DESIGN OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD TO TURN THE

CONTENT OF EUROPE INTO AN

ISLAMIC CONTINENT IN LESS

THAN 20 YEARS TIME.

THAT WAS HIS OWN WORDS,

NOT ME.

I ALWAYS LOVE IT WHEN

SOMEBODY ELSE SE ELSE SAYS THINGS,

NOT JUST ME.

Pat: I KNOW THIS IS A

LITTLE OUT OF LINE,

PRINCESS DIANA WAS SO

LOVED IN ENGLAND, BUT SHE

WAS GOING TO MARRY A

SAUDI, WHO WAS A MUSLIM.

SHE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE

CONVERTED TO ISLAM, AND

THAT WOULD HAVE BROUGHT

ENGLAND INTO THAT ORBIT.

RIGHT NOW THERE ARE SO

MANY FORCES IN ENGLAND AND

FRANCE, PARTICULARLY IN

ENGLAND, THERE ARE SO MANY

MUSLIMS -- ISLAMISTS, NOT

JUST MUSLIMS -- WHO ARE

INVOLVED.

THEY HAVE TAKEN OVER THE

BOARD OF EDUCATION IN

BURMINGHAM, ENGLAND.

THE FIRST THING THEY DID

WAS SCRUB THE TEXT BOOCTS TEXTBOOKS OF

THE HOLOCAUST.

AND ALL PRIME MINISTER

CAMERON SAID AT THE TIME

WAS, THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE.

THEY ARE LITERALLY TAKING

YOUR COUNTRY AWAY FROM

YOU, AND IT HAS GOT TO BE

MORE SERIOUS THAN THIS.

Pat: TELL US ABOUT

SHARIA, WHAT IS THAT GOING

TO DO?

I WAS SPEAKING TO BRITS

LAST YEAR, AND I SAID YOU

HAVE 1000 SHARI'A

COURTS -- AND THEY SAID,

NO, 200.

SO A MAN CAN BEAT HIS WIFE

OR DAUGHTER, IF HE

SUSPECTS THEM DOING

SOMETHING WRONG, AND IF

FOR SOME REASON THE

POLICEMAN TAKES HIM TO A

COURT, THEY CAN SAY, YOU

NEED TO SEND ME TO A

SHARI'A COURT.

AND THEY SAY, MAKE SURE

YOU BEAT HER IN THE RIGHT

WAY AND THE RIGHT PLACES,

AND BEAT HER LIGHTLY.

Pat: THAT'S HORRIBLE.

THAT'S JUST WHAT IS

HAPPENING IN EUROPE.

AND FOR SOME STRANGE

REASON, THE CHURCH, IT IS

JUST GOING TO SLEEP.

AND I'M TALKING ABOUT --

WE CAN HAVE ALL THESE

KINDS OF WONDERFUL MUSIC

AND STUFF AND BIG

GATHERINGS, BUT IN REALITY

WE'RE NOT LIVING THE

GOSPEL.

WE'RE NOT LITERALLY

WALKING IN THE TRUTH.

AND WE JUST SAY, LET'S

LOVE EACH OTHER.

WE WINK AT SIN AND ALLOW

SIN TO COME IN AND INVADE

THE CHURCH, AND LOOK WHERE

WE ARE.

UNLESS GOD INTERVENES AND

GOD'S PEOPLE START

PRAYING -- BECAUSE THAT IS

REALLY THE CALL OF THE

BOOK.

YOU TALK ABOUT THE ENEMY,

THE APATHY -- BUT IN THE

END, UNTIL GOD'S PEOPLE --

AS YOU HAVE QUOTED

EARLIER -- UNTIL MY PEOPLE

GET ON THEIR KNEES AND

BEGIN TO CRY TO GOD,

THINGS ARE GOING TO GET

WORSE.

I'LL GIVE YOU A QUICK

EXAMPLE.

IN EGYPT, WHEN THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD CAME TO POWER,

WE HAVE A TELEVISION

NETWORK CALLED "KINGDOM

SET" AND THERE ARE

150 MILLION HOMES AND IT

IS IN ARABIC, AND I GOT ON

THE SET AND I PLEADED WITH

THE CHRISTIAN LEADERS, AND

I SAID I KNOW YOU'RE UNDER

ATTACK, AND I SAID, GET ON

YOUR KNEES AND STOP

SQUABBLING WITH EACH

OTHER.

AND THE SENIOR BISHOP

CALLED ALL PASTORS TO COME

TO THE MONS TRE MONS MONSASTRY AND BEGAN

TO PRAY.

AND THEY BEGAN TO PRAY 24

HOURS A DAY.

2:00 IN THE MORNING, YOU

COULDN'T GET A SEAT IN

SOME CHURCHES FOR PRAYER

MEETINGS.

AND GOD HEARD AND GOD

ANSWERED, AND 33 MILLION

PEOPLE TOOK TO THE

STREETS, AND THEY TOPPLED

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

AND NOW THE COUNTRY IS

REALLY DOING EXTREMELY

WELL, LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

AND SO GOD -- WE'RE SEEING

WITH OUR OWN EYES, NOW,

GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS.

Pat: MICHAEL, THANK

YOU SO MUCH.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE

BOOK IS CALLED "THE HIDDEN

ENEMY."

WHERE CAN WE GET THIS?

EVERY BOOKSTORE.

IT'S ON AMAZON AND

leadingtheway.org.

Pat: THIS IS A CALL

FOR ACTION.

YOU OUGHT TO READ IT.

MICHAEL, WE APPRECIATE

YOU.

WE APPRECIATE YOU, PAT.

Pat: ALL RIGHT,

WENDY, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

Wendy: WELL, BEFORE

HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY, ANDREW

HAD TO OVERCOME A HOST OF

PROBLEMS, FROM CHICKEN POX

TO THE ROTO VIRUS TO A

STAPH INFECTION, ALL

WITHOUT AN IMMUNE SYSTEM.

THROUGH IT ALL, HIS

PARENTS HELD ON TO A

PROMISE OF LIFE, AND HERE

IS WHY.

WHEN I DELIVERED

ANDREW, AT FIRST THE

DOCTOR LOOKED A LITTLE

PUZZLED.

AND I SAID, THERE SEEMS

LIKE THERE IS SOMETHING

WRONG BECAUSE HE IS BLUE,

AND MY OTHER CHILDREN

WEREN'T THAT COLOR.

AND THEN I KNEW THAT THERE

WAS SOMETHING TRAGICALLY

WRONG WITH THIS CHILD.

Reporter: WHEN

KRISTIN DELIVERED HER

THIRD CHILD, ANDREW, SHE

AND HER HUSBAND, BILL,

RECEIVED SHOCKING NEWS.

THE DOCTOR CAME IN AND

SAID, HE IS NOT DEAD, BUT

WE DO HAVE TO CALL IN A

LIFE FLIGHT TEAM.

Reporter: HE WAS BORN

WITH PARTIAL DEGEORGE

SYNDROME, A CONDITION THAT

COULD HAVE 180 SIDE

EFFECTS.

THEIR DOCTOR OFFERED THEM

LITTLE HOPE.

THEY WERE GOING TO FLY

HIM TO A HOSPITAL IN

PITTSBURGH.

THEY THOUGHT HE HAD A

HEART DEFECT OF SOME SORT.

AND HE SAID, I'M NOT SURE

IF HE'LL MAKE IT.

DO YOU WANT SOMEONE TO

COME IN AND DO THE LAST

RIGHTS?

I JUST LAID THERE AND I

THOUGHT, YOU THINK YOU'RE

GOING TO GO IN AND HAVE

THIS BABY, AND YOU'RE

GOING TO BE COMING HOME

WITH THIS LITTLE BABY.

I HAVE TWO OTHER LITTLE

CHILDREN AT HOME.

I'M THINKING, THIS COULD

NOT BE HAPPENING.

Reporter: BILL WAS

INSTANTLY REMINDED FROM A

STORY FROM THE NEW

TESTAMENT AND HEARD A

STORY SPEAKING TO HIM.

HE WAS TOLD, BE NOT

AFRAID, ONLY BELIEVE, EVEN

THOUGH HIS CHILD HAD

ALREADY DIED.

I SAID, WE BELIEVE.

HE SAID THOSE WORDS,

AND THERE WAS SOMETHING

ABOUT IT THAT WAS SCARY,

BUT THERE WAS ALSO

SOMETHING ABOUT IT THAT

OVER TOOK YOUR FEAR.

YOU THOUGHT, OKAY, HE IS

GOING TO MAKE IT.

Reporter: WHEN ANDREW

ARRIVED AT PITTSBURGH'S

CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, THE

DOCTORS DISCOVERED HE HAD

NO LEFT PULMONARY ARTERY.

THERE WERE TWO HEAD

CARDIOLOGISTS AT

CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, AND

THEY SAID, LOOK, WE HAVE

GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS FOR

YOU.

THE GOOD NEWS IS, ANDREW

IS STILL ALIVE.

THE BAD NEWS IS, HE NEEDS

SURGERY NOW.

HERE ARE YOUR OPTIONS: WE

CAN BRING HIM HERE INTO

THE ROOM AND LET YOU HOLD

HIM AND LET HIM DIE IN

YOUR ARMS, OR WE CAN TAKE

HIM INTO THE SURGERY ROOM

AND LET HIM DIE THERE.

THOSE ARE YOUR TWO OPTIONS

O.

ReporterOPTIONS.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

OPTED FOR SURGERY, AND

CONTINUED TO BELIEVE FOR

HEALING.

I KEPT THINKING, DO

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO, GOD

IS GOING TO GET HIM

THROUGH THIS.

AND THEY SAID, YOU CAN

COME OUT AND SEE HIM.

AND I REMEMBER LOOKING AT

ANDREW AND SAYING, ANDREW,

I AM YOUR MOTHER, AND YOU

WILL LIVE AND YOU WILL

GROW UP, AND YOU'RE GOING

TO HAVE A PROSPEROUS AND A

PRODUCTIVE LIFE.

AND YOU'RE GOING TO LISTEN

TO ME, YOU ARE GOING TO

LIVE.

AND I'LL SEE YOU WHEN YOU

GET OUT.

Reporter: ANDREW

SURVIVED THE SURGERY, BUT

A HOST OF OTHER HEALTH

ISSUES BEGAN TO SURFACE.

IT WAS ONE WAVE AFTER

ANOTHER OF BAD NEWS.

HIS IMMUNE SYSTEM WAS

LIKE AN AIDS PATIENT.

WHICH MEANS HE CAN'T FIGHT

OFF ANY SICKNESS OR

DISEASE.

Reporter: STILL, THE

COUPLE CONTINUED TO

BELIEVE FOR ANDREW'S

HEALING, AND ANDREW

CONTINUED TO AMAZE THIS

DOCTORS.

WITHIN THE FIRST NINE

MONTHS OF HIS LIFE WITHOUT

AN IMMUNE SYSTEM, HE OVER

CAME A STAPH INFECTION IN

THE HEART, THEN THE

CHICKEN POX INFECTION, AND

THEN THE ROTO VIRUS

INFECTION, WITHOUT AN

IMMUNE SYSTEM, WHICH WE

BELIEVE IS BY THE HAND OF

GOD.

WE WOULD PRAY TOGETHER.

WE HAD THIS SET OF

SCRIPTURES.

HE WROTE SCRIPTURES ON A

PIECE OF PAPER.

THERE WOULD BE DAYS THAT I

WOULDN'T SLEEP.

I WOULD TAKE OUT THOSE

SCRIPTURES HE WROTE DOWN

FOR ME, AND I WOULD JUST

SAY THEM.

AND I WOULD LOOK AT THEM

AS MEDICINE.

I DECLARED IT.

IT HAS TO WORK.

MARK 11, SPEAK YOUR

MOUNTAIN.

COMMAND IT TO GO AND IT

WILL GO.

BELIEVE AND RECEIVE, AND

YOU WILL HAVE.

AND ALSO, "I WANT TO LIVE

AND DECLARE THE WORKS OF

THE LORD."

AND 1 PETER, "WITH HIS

STRIPES WE WERE HEALED."

Reporter: ANDREW'S

BIGGEST HURTLE, HOWEVER,

WAS THE LACK OF A

PULMONARY ARTERY.

WE SAID, LORD, THEY'RE

SAYING HE DOESN'T HAVE

ONE.

WE'RE ASKING YOU TO GIVE

HIM ONE.

AND WE STARTED THANKING

HIM FOR THAT.

DURING THE CATHERIZATION,

THEY DISCOVERED, OKAY, HE

HAS A THREAD FOR A LEFT

PULMONARY ARTERY.

AND THAT THREAD IS ALMOST

LIKE THE TIP OF A PIN,

WHEN IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE

THE SIZE OF A PENCIL

ERASER, AND WHERE THERE IS

NO BLOOD, THERE IS NO

GROWTH.

PERIODICALLY THEY WOULD

COME IN AND DO AN ECHO

SONOGRAM AND LOOK AT THE

ARTERY.

ONE TIME THE DOCTOR CAME

IN, AND HE WAS DOING THE

SCAN, AND HE SAID, OH, I

CAN SEE IT.

IT IS A LITTLE BIT BIGGER.

I TOLD YOU IT II SAID, SEE, I TOLD YOU IT

WAS GETTING BIGGER.

FOR US TO HEAR IT WAS A

THREAD, IT WAS EXCITING.

FOR THEM, IT MEANT

NOTHING.

BUT WE BELIEVED THAT FROM

NOTHING TO A THREAD IS THE

BEGINNING OF A MIRACLE.

Reporter: AT NINE

MONTHS, ANDREW WAS

SCHEDULED FOR A SURGERY TO

REPAIR HIS ARTERY.

BUT PRIOR TO THE SURGERY,

ONE OF THE DOCTORS NOTICED

SOMETHING UNUSUAL.

HE GRABBED ME IN THE

HALLWAY AND HE SAID, IT

WORKED.

IT WORKED.

IT IS THE RIGHT SIZE.

IT DOESN'T EVEN NEED

REPAIR.

AND I SAID, I KNOW.

I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO

GROW.

Reporter: OVER THE

NEXT SEVERAL YEARS, ANDREW

CONTINUED TO OVERCOME

EVERY OBSTACLE HE FACED.

I WAS VERY TENACIOUS

ABOUT WHAT I BELIEVED.

HE HAD TO SAY 11 WORDS BY

THE TIME HE WAS THREE FOR

HIM TO GO TO REGULAR

PRE-SCHOOL.

WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT, HE

SAID 11 WORDS.

I WAS, LIKE, COUNT THEM.

HE CAN GO TO PRE-SCHOOL.

Reporter: TODAY

ANDREW IS A HEALTHY

16-YEAR-OLD WHO KNOWS GOD

HAS A SPECIAL PLAN FOR HIS

LIFE.

I REALLY LOVE TO PLAY

THE PIANO.

AND I GO ON MY PHONE AND

TYPE IN YouTube,

SEARCH UP ANY SONG I WANT,

AND THEN JUST LEARN IT

FROM THERE.

IN THE FUTURE, I WOULD

LIKE TO PLAY FOR A WORSHIP

TEAM.

I STUDY GOD'S WORD ALL THE

TIME.

"ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE."

I SAY THAT EVERY MORNING.

HE IS A POWERFUL

WITNESS FOR JESUS, AND

UNASHAMEDLY DOES HE SHARE

HIS FAITH.

Reporter: THE COUPLE

TELL HIS STORY IN THEIR

BOOK, "WE BELIEVE."

THEY WERE ASSUMING HE

WOULD DIE, AND YET HE IS

16.

AND WHEN WE GO TO VISIT

THE DOCTORS FOR CHECKUPS,

HE SAID, HE GETS TO LIVE

AS LONG AS ANYBODY ELSE.

THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT

TO EXPECT FROM HIM.

HE IS JUST A WALKING

MIRACLE.

Wendy: A WALKING

MIRACLE.

AMEN.

WE'VE GOT YOUR PRAISE

REPORTS RIGHT HERE.

HERE IS ONE, PAT, SERGIO

FROM TEXAS WAS INSTALLING

TILE FLOOR.

HE WAS ON HIS KNEES THE

ENTIRE WEEK.

AFTER HE COMPLETED THE

JOB, HE HAD A LOT OF PAIN.

THIS CAUSED HIM TO WALK

WITH A LIMP.

ONE DAY SERGIO WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND HE HEARD YOU GIVE A

WORD OF KNOWLEDGE, PAT,

SAYING "YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH THE KNEE JOINT AND IT

IS STRAIGHTENING OUT RIGHT

NOW."

THE SWELLING AND THE PAIN

LEFT IMMEDIATELY AND HE

HAS HAD NO PAIN SINCE.

Pat: JAMIE OF

OKLAHOMA DEVELOPED

TERRIBLE PAIN IN THE RIGHT

SIDE OF HER CHEST.

THE DOCTORS COULDN'T FIND

ANYTHING.

WENDY, YOU HAD A WORD AND

YOU SAID, "YOU HAVE A PAIN

ON YOUR SIDE AND IT IS

REALLY DIGESTION ISSUES,

AND GOD IS HEALING IT."

JAMIE GOT HEALED AND SHE

IS PRAISING THE LORD.

> WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

TOGETHER.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY

DEAR SISTER IN CHRIST.

WE BELIEVE GOD.

LORD GOD, WITH YOU ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

SO WE ASK FOR MIRACLES, WE

ASK FOR CREATIVE MIRACLES,

THAT WILL CROSS THIS

AUDIENCE.

THAT PEOPLE WILL FIND

ORGANS THAT ARE FORMED BY

THE MIRACULOUS TOUCH OF

GOD.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

WENDY, WHAT HAVE YOU GOT?

Wendy: SOMEONE WITH

CRIPPLING ARTHRITIS, GOD

IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.

BE HEALED IN JESUS' NAME.

AND SOMEONE WITH A FOOT

FUNGUS THAT JUST WOULDN'T

GO AWAY, IT IS GOING AWAY

NOW.

JUST START PRAISING GOD IN

JESUS' NAME.

Pat: FATHER -- YOU'VE

GOT A LUMP UNDER YOUR

RIGHT SHOULDER THAT HAS

BEEN DIAGNOSED AS A BENIGN

TUMOR.

THAT TUMOR IS GOING AWAY

RIGHT NOW.

JUST TOUCH YOUR SHOULDER.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THAT

LUMP IS DISAPPEARING AND

YOU'RE COMPLETELY HEALED.

THANK YOU.

AMEN.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH OUR

POWER MINUTE FROM ROMANS:

"IF GOD IS FOR US, WHO CAN

BE AGAINST US?"

> TOMORROW, A SIDE OF A

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR THAT

YOU'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

WE'LL HEAD INTO THE

MALCOMER.
