Gordon: CRIPPLING

FOOT PAIN WAS RULING HER

LIFE, MAKING IT UNBEARABLE

TO WALK OR EVEN JUST

STAND.

THE NERVES WERE SO

DAMAGED THAT I REALLY

DIDN'T HAVE ANY BALANCE

HARDLY.

Gordon: THE DOCTOR

TOLD HER NOTHING COULD BE

DONE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO.

I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD

HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT THE

REST OF MY LIFE.

BUT IT WAS UNBEARABLE.

Gordon: PLUS, A

SURPRISING ALLIANCE THAT

THREATENS THE YOUTH OF

AMERICA.

DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF SHARES

HOW TO DEFEND THE TRUTH

WHILE TREATING OTHERS WITH

GRACE.

YOU'LL CATCH IT ALL ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

HERE IS EFREM GRAHAM WITH

THIS WEEK'S TOP FIVE

STORIES FROM "STUDIO 5."

Efrem: AT NUMBER

FIVE...

IF WE KICK THE CHURCH

OFF CAMPUS NOW AFTER WHAT

JUST HAPPENED --

Efrem: ACTOR TED

MCKINLEY TEAMS UP WITH

ROMA DOWNEY IN THE

SCRIPTED FAMILY DRAMATIC

"THE BAXTERS."

WE SET OUT TO

ENCOURAGE, ENGAGE, UPLIFT,

AND UNITE THROUGH OUR WORK

IN FILM, TV, AND NOW

ONLINE.

IT IS OUR BELIEF THAT WHEN

THE HEART OPENS, ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

Efrem: THE SIX

HALF-HOUR EPISODES IS

BASED ON THE BOOK SERIES

BY KAREN KINGSBURY, AND

TARGETED FOR PREMIERE LATE

NITHIS YEAR.

> AT NUMBER FOUR...

THIS IS HIS NEARLY

INCREDIBLE BOXING CAREER.

Efrem: CHRISTIAN

BOXER MANNY PACQUEL

RETURNS TO THE RINK.

MANNY HAS BEATEN OSCAR

DE LA HOYA.

Efrem: HE WILL

CHALLENGE LUCAS MATIF IN

KUALA LUMPUR.

THIS IS THE BRILLIANCE

OF THE FILIPINO SLUGGER.

Efrem: AT NUMBER

THREE...

THE JACKSONVILLE

COMMUNITY IS MOURNING THE

DEATH OF A TEENAGER THERE.

SHE WAS KILLED IN A CAR

CRASH ON MONDAY.

Efrem: THE LIFE OF A

YOUNG GIRL WHO TOUCHED THE

LIVES OF FRIENDS AND

STRANGERS IS THE SUBJECT

OF A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE,

"KIND KATIE."

WE ARE USING WHAT IS

CALLED "REGULATION CROWD

FUND," WHICH SOUNDS THE

SAME AS ANY OTHER CROWD

FUND, BUT IT IS AN F.C.C.

REGULATED INVESTMENT

OPPORTUNITY.

Efrem: FILM-MAKER

JOHN GRAHAM IS LOOKING FOR

SUPPORT, INVESTORS, TO

HELP HIM TELL THE POWERFUL

STORY OF AN ORDINARY GIRL

WHO MADE AN EXTRAORDINARY

IMPACT.

FOR 17 MONTHS WE'VE

BEEN ASKING GOD TO NOT LET

OUR PAIN BE WASTED, AND TO

GIVE US BEAUTY FOR ASHES.

WHEN WE STEPPED OFF THIS

BUS, ON TO THAT PROPERTY,

AND SAW THAT SCHOOL

BUILDING, THERE WAS JUST

THIS OVERWHELMING SENSE OF

"I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS

REAL."

Efrem: AT NUMBER

TWO...

* THE OVERWHELMING,

NEVER-ENDING... *

Efrem: CORY ASBURY'S

WORSHIP SONG "RECKLESS

LOVE," HAS A FAN IN JUSTIN

BIEBER.

THE OVERWHELMING,

NEVER-ENDING, RECKLESS

LOVE OF GOD.

Efrem: HE POSTED HIS

PHRAINS GRAHAMINSTAGRAM STORY THIS WEEK.

* WON'T TEAR IT DOWN

* HE'S COMING AFTER ME

Efrem: AT NUMBER

ONE...A MEMORIAL HONORING

THE VICTIMS OF LYNCHING IN

AMERICA OPENS UP IN

MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA.

THE NATIONAL MEMORIAL

FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE,

WHICH WAS PAID FOR THROUGH

HUNDREDS OF PRIVATE

DONATIONS, WERE OPEN TO

THE PUBLIC APRIL 26th.

IT CONTAINS 805 STILL

MARKERS, ONE FOR EACH

COUNTY WHERE LYNCHING TOOK

PLACE, AND ON EACH MARKER,

THE NAMES.

THE MARKERS ARE SUSPENDED

TO EVOKE THE HORROR OF

BEING HUNG UP AND HANGED

FROM A TREE.

Efrem: OPRAH WINFREY

WAS THE FIRST TO TOUR AND

SHARE THE MUSEUM FOR "60

MINUTES."

THIS IS 4,000, BUT OF

COURSE, THERE ARE MORE.

Efrem: SHE REFLECTS

ON ITS PLACE IN AMERICA.

ALONG THIS WALL, ALL OF

THESE JARS BEHIND ME

REPRESENT THE NAMES, ALL

THE NAMES REPRESENT A

PERSON, THE PERSON COMES

FROM A FAMILY THAT HAD TO

ENDURE A LYNCHING THAT

TOOK PLACE HERE IN THE

STATE OF ALABAMA.

SO THE TRUTH OF THAT AND

THE RECONCILIATION THAT

CAN COME FROM THAT HAS

POWER NOT JUST FOR

ALABAMA, BUT FOR THE WHOLE

NATION AND THE WORLD.

Gordon: WELL, THAT'S

QUITE A STATEMENT.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

DO YOU THINK THE MEMORIAL

CAN LEAD TO

RECONCILIATION?

Efrem: YOU KNOW, WHEN

I WATCHED THAT STORY ON

"60 MINUTES" THIS WEEKEND

AND WATCHED OPRAH'S

STATEMENT, SCRIPTURE KEPT

COMING TO ME.

AND WHILE THIS IS AN UGLY

PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY,

WE'RE NOT THERE ANYMORE.

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT

AND SHARE IT WITH THOSE

WHO COME AFTER TO KNOW

EXACTLY HOW FAR WE HAVE

COME.

AT LEAST 4300 PEOPLE, AT

LEAST DOCUMENTED, THAT

WERE LYNCHED.

I DON'T CARE WHAT RACE YOU

ARE IN THIS COUNTRY, THIS

IS PART OF OUR HISTORY.

YES, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT

IT.

AND TO SEE THAT MEMORIAL,

I'M TOUCHED TO SEE IT.

THOSE ARE LIVES THAT NOW

WE AT LEAST KNOW A NAME.

THEY'RE COLLECTING DIRT

FROM EXACTLY WHERE THE

LYNCHINGS HAPPEN.

AS PAINFUL AS IT IS, WE'VE

GOT TO TALK ABOUT IT,

BECAUSE, YES, THAT'S HOW

WE OVERCOME.

Gordon: AND I ALSO

THINK WE NEED TO TALK

ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT HELPS

TO UNDERSTAND WHERE WE ARE

NOW.

> Efrem: YES,

ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: BECAUSE THAT

STILL REVERBERATES.

I'LL GO BIBLICAL ON YOU:

THEIR BLOOD STILL CRIES

OUT.

Efrem: ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: WHAT DO WE DO

ABOUT IT TODAY?

JUST ON RACIAL

RECONCILIATION, DID YOU

THINK WE'RDO YOUTHINK WE'RE MAKING ANY

PROGRESS ON TRUE

INTEGRATION, TRUE ECONOMIC

OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUNG,

BLACK MEN?

FOR POLICE NOT TARGETING

ANY OF THOSE -- ANY OF

THOSE RACIAL PROFILES, ARE

WE SEEING IT CHANGED

THERE?

Efrem: I BELIEVE WE

ARE.

WE HAVE A YOUNG BLACK BOY

GETTING READY TO GO INTO

THE MILITARY, AND A YOUNG

BLACK DAUGHTER GROWING UP

AS WELL.

WE, AS A FAMILY, TRAVELLED

TO WASHINGTON, D.C. TO SEE

FOR THE FIRST TIME THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY

MUSEUM, AND TO SEE THE

RAINBOW OF COLOR THERE IN

LANE AROUND THAT BUILDING,

WAITING TO GET IN, THAT IT

WASN'T JUST PEOPLE OF

COLOR WHO WERE WANTING TO

SEE WHAT THE HISTORY OF

AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN THIS

COUNTRY IS, BUT IT WAS

HISPANIC, MEXICAN, BLACK,

WHITE, ALL, AND WE ALL

MARMARVELLED AT THE DIFFICULT

TIMES, AND WERE ABLE TO

COMMUNICATE AND TALK ONE

TO ANOTHER, AS WE WATCHED

AND SAW SOME PAINFUL

ELEMENTS OF OUR HISTORY.

AND ALSO THEN TO RISE TO

THE SECOND AND THIRD FLOOR

OF THE MUSEUM, WHERE WE'RE

CELEBRATING MUSIC AND

CULTURE AND SPORTS, AND

LOOK AT EACH OTHER AND

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL

CONVERSATION ABOUT THAT AS

WELL.

AND THEN WATCHING MY KIDS.

YES, THERE IS -- I KNOW WE

CERTAINLY HAD STRIDES.

MY GRANDMOTHER IS ABOUT TO

TURN 100 YEARS OLD THIS

COMING AUGUST, AND TO BE

IN HER PRESENCE WHEN WE

SEE THINGS LIKE THIS AND

TO WITNESS PIECES OF

HISTORY, TO LET ME KNOW

EXACTLY HOW FAR WE HAVE

COME.

SHE IS SEEING THINGS SHE

NEVER WOULD HAVE THOUGHT

SHE WOULD HAVE SEEN IN HER

LIFETIME, AND THAT GIVES

ME A LOT OF PAUSE AND HOPE

FOR OUR FUTURE.

Gordon: OKAY, LET'S

GO NEGATIVE.

WHAT CONVERSATION DID YOU

HAVE WITH YOUR KIDS AFTER

THE SHOOTING IN

CALIFORNIA, AND THE

AUTOPSY THAT SHOWS SEVEN

OF THOSE BULLETS WERE IN

THE BACK?

Efrem: THAT IS --

THAT'S REALLY, REALLY

DIFFICULT.

THEY -- THAT'S SOMETHING

THEY STILL CAN'T GRASP.

Gordon: I DON'T THINK

ANYONE CAN GRASP IT.

Efrem: NO.

I THINK OF THE MOMENT --

THERE IS AN EMMETT TILL

AREA OF THE MUSEUM THAT WE

SEE, AND HIS ACTUAL CASKET

IS THERE.

PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW THE

STORY, THIS YOUNG KID WAS

REALLY THE SPRINGBOARD OF

THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.

HE WAS LYNCHED AND

MURDERED FROM CHICAGO, BUT

WITH HIS FAMILY IN

ALABAMA.

Gordon: JUST

BECAUSE --

Efrem: HE WHISTLED AT

A WHITE WOMAN, POSSIBLY.

Gordon: MAYBE GAVE A

LOOK.

Efrem: THAT'S IT.

THAT'S THE ONLY CRIME HE

COMMITTED.

Gordon: HOW IS THAT A

CRIME?

Efrem: I KNOW.

TO SHARE THAT STORY WITH

MY DAUGHTER, AND WE SEE

THE CASKET, AND THERE IS A

PICTURE OF HIM INSIDE THE

CASKET.

AND MY DAUGHTER SAID,

INITIALLY, I CAN'T SEE IT.

I WANT TO SEE IT.

AND LITERALLY, I GOT HER

UP ON MY ARM, AND IN LESS

THAN A SECOND, SHE SAID,

TAKE ME DOWN.

I CAN'T TAKE IT.

I DON'T WANT TO SEE THAT.

TO SEE THEM WRESTLE WITH

THAT, IT'S A DIFFICULT

CONVERSATION.

AND HERE WE SIT A WEEK

LATER, AND WE ARE STILL

TALKING ABOUT THAT, STILL

GETTING BOOKS FOR HER TO

SORT OF SEE HOW WE GOT

THERE.

AND MY FAMILY IS A DIVERSE

FAMILY.

SO WHEN WE SIT AROUND THE

THANKSGIVING TABLE, YOU

KNOW, MY KIDS ARE SAYING,

OKAY, WELL, THERE IS AN

HISPANIC THERE, THERE IS A

WHITE WOMAN THERE THAT I

CALL MY GRANDMOTHER.

REALLY?

REALLY?

BUT WE HAVE PURPOSEFULLY

SHOWN YOU DIFFERENCE.

WE HAVE PURPOSELY SHOWN

YOU THAT WE ARE ALL THE

SAME BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT

THAT FOR YOUR FUTURE.

AND WE DON'T WANT TO CARRY

ON THIS LEGACY.

Gordon: HOW DO YOU

KEEP ANGER FROM COMING UP

WHEN YOU SEE THE PICTURE

OF THEM?

WHEN YOU HEAR THE REPORT

THAT IT IS NOT A LYNCHING,

IT IS A POLICE SHOOTING IN

A GRANDMOTHER'S BACKYARD?

HOW DO YOU NOT GET ANGRY?

> Efrem: THE WAY FOR US

HAS BEEN TO WATCH,

FORTUNATELY, THE REACTION

AND RESPONSE OF THOSE WHO

ARE CLOSEST TO THESE

VICTIMS.

FOR MOST, IF NOT ALL, THEY

HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PREACH

AND CALL FOR PEACEFUL

PROTESTS, AND TO CALL FOR

NON-VIOLENCE.

AND THAT'S BEEN THE

EXAMPLE I KEEP SHOWING TO

MY KIDS.

LOOK, THIS WAS HER

GRANDSON.

THIS WAS A BROTHER.

AND THEY ARE SAYING, WE

WANT TO CELEBRATE HIS

LIFE.

WE WANT JUSTICE.

BUT WE DON'T WANT THIS

REPLICATED.

WE DON'T WANT REVENGE.

WE WANT JUSTICE TO PLAY

OUT, AND WE WANT YOU TO

BEHAVE IN RESPONSE TO

THIS.

THAT'S BEEN THE WAY WE'VE

BEEN ABLE TO.

AND EVEN WITH THE EMMETT

TILL STORY, FOR ME TO TELL

MY DAUGHTER, WELL, HIS MOM

MADE SURE THAT WE WOULD

SEE THIS PIECE OF HISTORY,

BUT, ALSO, SHE DIDN'T WANT

IT DUPLICATED.

SHE WANTED THIS TO STOP.

AND THIS IS WHY SHE SHARED

HER SON'S LIFE AND STORY

WITH US.

Gordon: I LOVE YOUR

RESPONSE, AND I HAVE TO

GIVE CREDIT BECAUSE I

THINK YOU'RE MODELING WA

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

SAID, THAT THE ENDS ARE

NOT JUSTIFIED BY THE

MEANS.

THAT THE MEANS ARE THE

END.

AND HE CHOSE A PATH OF

NON-VIOLENCE AT A TIME

WHEN THERE WERE LOTS OF

CALLS FOR VIOLENCE.

AND HE SAID, NO, THAT IS

NOT THE WAY.

LET US CHOOSE PEACEFUL

PROTEST.

LET US STAND FOR JUSTICE.

Efrem: 50 YEARS AFTER

HIS DEATH, LET'S STILL DO

THAT.

Gordon: WE WERE

SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT

ENTERTAINMENT.

IF YOU WANT MORE ON THE

ONGOING DIALOGUE OF RACIAL

RECONCILIATION, CHECK OUT

EFREM'S WEEKLY SHOW,

"STUDIO 5," AND YOU CAN

WATCH IT ONLINE AT

cbnnews.com "STUDIATcbnnews.com/studio5.

> COMING UP, ENEMIES IN

AND OUTSIDE OF OUR COUNTRY

ARE ATTACKING OUR VALUES.

BUT THERE IS A WAY TO STOP

THEM.

DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF

EXPLAINS WHEN WE COME

Gordon: THE OLD

SAYING GOES, "THE ENEMY OF

MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND."

FOR AMERICA, THE 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.

Reporter:

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES ARE

UNDER SIEGE.

MICHAEL YOUSSEF IS A

SOCIAL AND CULTURAL

EXPERT.

HE IS ALSO THE PASTOR OF

"CHURCH OF THE APOSTLES"

IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA.

HE SAYS THERE ARE

DESTRUCTIVE FORCES IN AND

OUTSIDE OF OUR COUNTRY,

ATTEMPTING TO DESTROY

AMERICA'S FOUNDING

PRINCIPLES.

IN HIS BOOK, "THE HIDDEN

ENEMY," DR. YOUS SEF YOUSSEF

HIGHLIGHTS THE STEPS TO

BUILD A BETTER FUTURE.

Gordon: MICHAEL

YOUSSEF, IT IS GREAT TO

HAVE YOU HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

ME, GORDON.

Gordon: LET ME ASK

YOU A QUESTION THAT HAS

BEEN PUZZLING ME.

I HAVE A HARD TIME

UNDERSTANDING WHAT I'LL

CALL SECULAR LIBERALISTS,

OR EVEN FE FEMINISTS, WHO

SEEM TO WANT TO PROTECT

RADICAL ISLAM.

AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

NOT ONLY PROTECT, BUT

WORK TOGETHER.

THEY HAVE KIND OF FORMED

THAT UNHOLY ALLIANCE, AND

THEY WELCOME EACH OTHER.

I KNOW FROM THE SECULAR'S

POINT OF VIEW, THEY WANT

TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE

DIVERSE, AND THAT THEY ARE

REALLY TOLERANT AND NOT

LIKE THESE INTOLERANT

CHRISTIANS.

THE PROBLEM IS, TOLERANCE

THAT COMES OUT OF FEAR IS

NOT REALLY TOLERANCE.

IT IS DOING IT BECAUSE

YOU'RE AFRAID OF THOSE

JIHADIS.

LIKE THE FORMER PRESIDENT

OF THE B.B.C. SAID, WE CAN

BEAT ON THE CHRISTIANS

BECAUSE THEY HAVE BROAD

SHOULDERS.

BUT IF WE SAY ANYTHING

ABOUT MUSLIM TERRORISTS,

THEY'RE GOING TO SHOW UP

WITH GUNS AND WEAPONS.

Gordon: I JUST DON'T

UNDERSTAND IT

INTELLECTUALLY BECAUSE

WHEN YOU LIVE IN AN

ISLAMIST COUNTRY, WITH

STRICT ENFORCEMENT OF

SHARI'A LAW, THERE IS NO

SUCH THING AS FREEDOM OF

ASSEMBLY OR FREEDOM OF

SPEECH.

ABSOLUTELY.

Gordon: YOU CAN BE

CHARGED WITH BLASPHEMY ON

A WHIM.

IN PAKISTAN, IT HAPPENS

ALL OF THE TIME.

Gordon: IN INDONESIA,

A SITTING GOVERNOR WAS PUT

IN PRISON FOR SAYING

MUSLIMS CAN VOTE FOR

CHRISTIANS.

RIGHT.

SIMPLE THINGS LIKE THAT.

Gordon: THAT WAS

CONSIDERED BLASPHEMY.

YEAH.

Gordon: BUT IT

DOESN'T SEEM TO EVER --

AND THEN YOU JUST TAKE

WOMEN'S RIGHTS IN THE

ISLAMIC WORLD, WHERE YOU

CAN'T DRIVE A CAR.

THERE IS NO RIGHT OF

EDUCATION.

YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT.

Gordon: THESE

THINGS -- I DON'T

UNDERSTAND INTELLECTUALLY

HOW THEY HOLD THE

POSITION.

YOU PUT YOUR FINGER ON

IT.

YOU CANNOT REALLY

UNDERSTAND IT

INTELLECTUALLY.

IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

BECAUSE EVEN IN THE

FEMINIST RALLIES THEY HAD

IN WASHINGTON, D.C., AFTER

TRUMP'S NOMINATION, WAS A

WOMAN WEARING A HIJAB

CALLING FOR SHARI'A FOR

AMERICA.

AND YOU HAVE TO SCRATCH

YOUR HEAD.

INTELLECTUALLY YOU CAN

NEVER UNDERSTAND IT.

THESE TWO PEOPLE ARE POLAR

OPPOSITES.

AND I HAVE MANY THINKERS

CALLING ME AND SAID, I

UNDERSTOOD THIS AND I

UNDERSTOOD THIS, BUT I

NEVER PUT THE TWO

TOGETHER.

BUT SPIRITUALLY YOU CAN.

IF YOU REMEMBER, ISRAEL

WOULD HAVE TWO ENEMIES,

AND THEY LITERALLY WOULD

BE AT EACH OTHER'S

THROATS, BUT FOR SOME

REASON THEY'LL WORK

TOGETHER, THEY'LL FORM

THAT UNHOLY ALLIANCE ONLY

TO ATTACK ISRAEL.

FROM A SPIRITUAL POINT OF

VIEW IS THE ONLY WAY YOU

CAN REALLY UNDERSTAND THIS

OR MAKE SENSE OF IT.

THAT BECAUSE, AS PSALM 2

SAID, THE NATIONS CAN RAGE

AND UNITE TOGETHER RAGING

AGAINST GOD'S ANOINTED

MESSIAH AND HIS FOLLOWERS.

THAT IS WHAT IS REALLY

HAPPENING.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE SPIRITUAL

EYES TO SEE THIS BECAUSE

IN THE NATURAL MIND IT

DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

Gordon: I THINK

YOU'RE ON TO SOMETHING

BECAUSE IT DOES SEEM

DISALLIANCED IN BRITAIN,

WHERE THE LABOR PARTY IS

VERY SPECIFICALLY

TARGETING ISRAEL.

EXACTLY.

AND EVEN CHURCHES -- IT IS

VERY HARD TO FIND A CHURCH

IN ENGLAND -- THERE ARE

VERY FEW WHO ARE STANDING

WITH ISRAEL.

AND I'M TALKING ABOUT

EVANGELICALS AND

BIBLE-BELIEVING CHURCHES.

IT HAS BECOME FASHIONABLE

NOW NOT TO DO THAT.

WHAT THE CONSERVATIVE

PARTY DOES -- AND I GO TO

ENGLAND QUITE A BIT

BECAUSE WE HAVE AN OFFICE

THERE AND A MINISTRY

THERE, AND I WAS MEETING

WITH SOME CITIZENS OF

BRITAIN ONE TIME AT A

PRIVATE DINNER, AND I

SAID, YOU KNOW HERE IN

YOUR COUNTRY, YOU HAVE 100

SHARI'A, AND ONE OF THEM

STOPPED ME, AND HE SAID,

200 SHARI'A COURTS.

AND WHAT DOES THE

CONSERVATIVE DO?

THEY STARTED REACHING

OUT -- SOME MUSLIMS ARE

REALLY -- I TELL PEOPLE

THAT I SPENT THREE HOURS

WITH PRESIDENT

EL-SISI --

Right Hon Jean Gordon: I LOVE HIS

SPEECHES.

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO TAKE

THEM TO HEART?

I LISTEN TO EVERY ONE

OF HIS SPEECHES.

AND HE SMILES.

AND I SAID, YOU'RE A MAN

WHO KEPT YOUR OWN WORD,

WHEN YOU SAID AT THE

CATHEDRAL, CHRISTMAS 2015,

THAT YOU WILL REBUILD

EVERY ONE OF THE CHURCHES

BURNED BY THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD BETTER THAN

BEFORE.

AND YOU DID.

I SAID, MR. PRESIDENT, YOU

KEPT YOUR WORD.

AND I BELIEVE WITH ALL OF

MY HEART, YOU'RE GOD'S

GIFT THE NOT ONLY TO EGYPT

BUT TO THE REGION.

SO I'M SPEAKING AS A

PERSON WHO UNDERSTANDS THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

POLITICAL ISLAM AND

MUSLIMS.

LOOK AT THE PRINCE OF

SAUDI ARABIA, THE CROWN

PRINCE, WHO HAS BEEN

VISITING IN THE UNITED

STATES FOR THREE WEEKS.

THE INTERVIEWS HE IS

GIVING, AND HE IS WARNING

AMERICA SAYING, THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS GOING TO

TAKE OVER EUROPE IN THE

NEXT 20 YEARS UNLESS YOU

DO SOMETHING.

I MEAN, YOU HAVE TO HAVE

SPIRITUAL EYES TO SEE THAT

GOD IS DOING SOME THINGS

THAT JUST BEYOND OUR

ABILITY.

I TELL LEADERS IN EGYPT,

THAT IF IT WASN'T FOR SISI

AND GOD RAISING HIM UP,

YOU COULD HAVE HAD

15 MILLION REFUGEES LIKE

YOU HAVE IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA, WITH THE SUPPORT OF

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

IN FACT, THEY'VE BEEN

INVESTIGATING NOW THAT THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION GAVE

THEM MILLIONS OF DOLLARS

TO SUCCEED, THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IN EUROPE.

Gordon: WHY DIDN'T

THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WAKE

UP TO THAT?

I THINK HE TELEGRAPHED IT

IN HIS CAIRO SPEECH, AND

IT IS A FAMOUS SPEECH, AND

VERY FEW PEOPLE HAVE READ

IT.

WHAT HE DID WAS MORE

THAN JUST THE SPEECH.

HE INSISTED THAT THE

LEADERS OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD BE SITTING IN

THE FRONT.

MR. BARAK SAID TO HIM,

THIS IS AN OUTLAW GROUP,

AND HE SAID, I DON'T CARE.

I WANT THEM SITTING IN THE

FRONT.

AND THEY HAVE RECORDINGS

OF HIM -- MORSI AND OBAMA

TALKING AND HIS FULL

SUPPORT.

JUST AS HILLARY CLINTON

DID IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

AND HILLARY IS A CARD

CARRYING MEMBER OF THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THIS

BLINDNESS -- THERE HAS GOT

TO BE A SPIRITUAL

BLINDNESS.

THEY CANNOT SEE THE

DANGER.

NOW, IF SOMEBODY WERE TO

OPEN -- I DON'T CARE IF

THEIR ISLAMISTS OR

MILITANT, IF THEY WANT TO

TALK, I'LL TALK TO THEM.

BUT TO PUT THEM IN CHARGE

OF NATIONAL SECURITY.

NUMBER TWO AND THREE MAN

WERE ALL ISLAMISTS, AND

THE WRITING WAS VERY

CLEAR.

THIS WHOLE BLINDNESS THAT

COMES FROM THE SECULAR

SEGMENT OF OUR SOCIETY IS

REALLY THE MOST DANGEROUS

THING BECAUSE THEY ARE

CREATING THE VACUUM.

AND ANOTHER GROUP I'M

GOING TO TELL YOU IN A

MINUTE, CREATING THE

VACUUM, MAKING THAT VERY

RIPE FOR ISLAMISTS TO MOVE

IN TO FILL THE VACUUM.

BUT THE CHRISTIANS ARE

ALSO CREATING THE VACUUM.

IN EUROPE, WHEN THE

CHRISTIANS DEPARTED FROM

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH,

CHURCHES TURNED INTO

MUSEUMS AND MONUMENTS.

LOOK WHAT HAS HAPPENED.

WHO IS FILLING THAT

VACUUM?

ISLAMISTS.

NOT JUST MUSLIMS, BUT

ISLAMISTS.

UNLESS GOD'S PEOPLE TURN

BACK TO GOD'S TRUTH, AND

NOT ONLY BELIEVE IT, BUT

LIVE IT AND PROCLAIM IT,

20 YEARS FROM NOW, IF GOD

SPARES US, WE WILL HAVE A

DIFFERENT CONVERSATION,

UNLESS GOD INTERVENES.

SO I'M CALLING UPON THE

BELIEVERS, FIRST OF ALL,

TO TAKE THEIR PRAYER LIFE

SERIOUSLY, AND GATHER IN

PRAYER AND ASK GOD TO

REMEMBER US WITH AN

AWAKENING.

BUT, ALSO, I'M ASKING THEM

TO BE ACTIVE.

KNOW THE TRUTH, BELIEVE

THE TRUTH, LIVE THE TRUTH,

AND THEN PROCLAIM THE

TRUTH UNASHAMEDLY.

THERE ARE SO MANY PLACES

IN THE EVANGELICAL WORLD,

WHO SAY, WE'RE NOT SURE IF

JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.

65% OF CHRISTIANS BELIEVE

THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO

GOD BUT JESUS.

AND IT IS VERY DISTRESSING

DISTRESSING.

BUT I'VE READ THE LAST

CHAPTER OF THE BOOK, AND I

KNOW HE IS IN CHARGE.

BUT I'M JUST RINGING THE

ALARM BELL.

Gordon: THE BOOK IS

CALLED "THE HIDDEN ENEMY,"

AND IT IS AVAILABLE IN

STORES NATIONWIDE.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH

US.

THANK YOU, GORDON.

Gordon: HAVE YOU EVER

SAID TO YOURSELF, I NEED

TO JUST GET OFF MY FEET

FOR A MINUTE?

WELL, LIZ WILSON FELT THAT

WAY ALL THE TIME.

SHE HAD A PAINFUL NERVE

CONDITION THAT MADE IT

PAINFUL TO WALK AND EVEN

STAND.

I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS

WRONG OR WHAT WAS CAUSING

IT.

I JUST KNEW THAT THE PAIN

WAS ALMOST UNBEARABLE, TO

STAND ON MY FEET OR HAVE

TO WALK.

FINALLY I WENT TO A

PEDIATRIST, AND SHE SAID

YOU HAVE DAMAGED THE

NERVES ON THE BECOM BOTTOM OF

YOUR FEET.

AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT

CAN CORRECT THAT.

THE NERVES WERE SO

DAMAGED, I REALLY DIDN'T

HAVE ANY BALANCE HARDLY.

AND I HAD TO TOUCH THINGS

AND HOLD ON TO THINGS AS I

WOULD WALK.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD

HAVE TO LIVE WITH THAT FOR

THE REST OF MY LIFE.

BUT IT WAS UNBEARABLE.

ONE DAY I WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND TERRY

HAD A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

AND SHE SAID THAT THERE

WAS SOMEONE WHO HAD NERVE

DAMAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF

THEIR FEET.

Terry: YOU HAVE A

CONDITION WITH YOUR FEET.

IT IS VERY HARD FOR YOU TO

EVEN FEEL THE FLOOR.

AND IT PUTS YOU OFF

BALANCE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT AND

RESTORING THOSE NERVES IN

JESUS' NAME.

SHE SAID, YOU'RE BEING

HEALED RIGHT NOW.

AND THE MINUTE SHE SAID

THAT, I JUMPED UP AND I

SAID, THAT'S ME.

THAT'S ME.

I'M HEALED.

AND I WALKED AROUND AND I

COULD ACTUALLY FEEL MY

HEEL AND MY TOES TOUCHING

THE FLOOR, WHICH I HADN'T

BEEN ABLE TO FEEL FOR

ALMOST TWO YEARS.

AND SO IT WAS JUST AN

INSTANT MIRACLE.

I WOULD HAVE NEVER DREAMED

SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD

HAVE HAPPENED, JUST IN

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

THERE ISN'T ANOTHER WORD

THAT WOULD DESCRIBE IT.

I'M JUST TRULY BLESSED.

Gordon: GOD KNOWS

YOU.

HE KNOWS THE VERY HAIRS ON

YOUR HEAD.

HE NUMBERS THEM.

HE KNOWS YOU BY NAME.

BEFORE YOU EVEN CALL OUT

TO HIM, HE HAS ALREADY

PROVIDED THE ANSWER TO

EVERY PRAYER.

AND WHAT'S THAT ANSWER?

HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,

JESUS.

FOR BY HIS STRIPES, WE

WERE HEALED.

BY HIS BLOOD, WE WERE

FORGIVEN.

HE BECAME A CURSE SO THAT

WE WOULDN'T BE CURSED

ANYMORE.

HE HAS OPENED THE WAY SO

THAT WE CAN HAVE

FELLOWSHIP ONCE AGAIN.

WE CAN ONCE AGAIN BE

RECONCILED TO GOD AND HEAR

HIS VOICE.

HE WILL OPEN OUR EARS.

HE'LL OPEN OUR EYES TO

SEE.

HE'LL SHOW NOW HE IS

WORKING ALL THINGS

TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD.

HE'LL TAKE YOU AND GIVE

YOU INCREDIBLE REVELATION

INTO HIS WORD, INTO YOUR

FUTURE.

AND HE HAS GOT PLANS FOR

YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

TRUST IN HIM.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT,

TRUST IS ANOTHER WORD FOR

FAITH.

RELIANCE IS ANOTHER WORD

FOR FAITH.

WHEN YOU SAY, GOD, YOU'VE

GOT THIS.

YOU'VE GOT MY EVERY

BREATH.

YOU'VE GOT MY FUTURE.

YOU'VE GOT MY PAST.

I TRUST IN YOU.

WHEN YOU DO THAT,THEN THE

MIRACLES HAPPEN.

THE RABBIS TALK ABOUT THE

NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS.

AND, YES, GOD CREATED THE

NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS.

BUT THEY ALSO TALK ABOUT A

SUPERNATURAL ORDER OF

THINGS, WHERE MIRACLES

HAPPEN.

SO WE'RE GOING TO PRAY NOW

FOR YOU.

AND JUST BE ENCOURAGED BY

THAT STORY, HE KNOWS YOUR

CONDITION ALREADY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PUT

YOUR TRUST IN HIM, AND

YOU'LL SEE THE MIRACLE.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST REACH OUT TO

YOU, AND ON BEHALF OF

ANYONE WATCHING RIGHT NOW,

WHO IS IN PAIN, WHO HAS

DISEASE, LORD GOD, WE JUST

CLAIM OVER THEM THAT YOU

FORGIVE ALL OUR INIQUITIES

AND YOU HEAL ALL OUR

DISEASES.

SO TAKE AWAY THEIR PAIN.

TAKE AWAY THEIR INFIRMITY.

FOR YOU BORE OUR

INFIRMITIES AWAY.

AND IF YOU BORE THEM ON

THE CROSS, WE DON'T HAVE

TO BEAR THEM ANY LONGER.

SO STRETCH FORTH YOUR HAND

NOW TO DO MIRACLES, SIGNS

AND WONDERS, FOR WE ASK IT

ALL IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, WE'RE

HERE FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

> AND HERE IS A WORD FOR

YOU: "TRUST IN THE LORD

WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND

LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN

UNDERSTANDING.

IN ALL YOUR WAYS

ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE

WILL MAKE STRAIGHT YOUR

PATHS."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW.
