A chilling dream comes true and leaves one woman’s sister fighting for her life. Plus, author and speaker Mo Isom digs down into the conversations that the church forgot. Read Transcript


Announcer: THE

FOLLOWING PROGRAM IS

SPONSORED BY CBN.

Gordon: COMING UP...A

CHILLING DREAM.

I CAME UPON THIS

ACCIDENT SCENE.

Gordon: ...THAT CAME

TRUE JUST TWO MONTHS

LATER.

THEY PRETTY MUCH TOLD

US SHE WAS NOT GOING TO

MAKE IT.

I TURNED AROUND, AND THERE

WAS JESUS.

Gordon: WE CONCLUDE

OUR WEEK OF PRAYER ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE LEADERS OF NORTH AND

SOUTH KOREA CAME TOGETHER

AT THEIR BORDER FOR AN

HISTORIC SUMMIT TODAY.

THEY SAY THEY WANT TO

REMOVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

FROM THE KOREAN PENINSULA,

ALTHOUGH THEY DIDN'T SAY

HOW THEY'LL GET THAT DONE.

Terry: AND THEY ALSO

REACHED OTHER AGREEMENTS

IN AN EFFORT TO EASE

TENSIONS BETWEEN THEIR

COUNTRIES.

JENNIFER WISHON BRINGS US

THIS LOOK AT THE SCENE AS

THE TWO LEADERS CAME

TOGETHER.

*

Jennifer: A MOST

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE: THE

DICTATOR FROM THE NORTH

ALONGSIDE THE

DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED

PRESIDENT FROM THE SOUTH,

PARADING THROUGH POMP AS

THE WORLD WATCHED.

KIM JONG-UN CROSSED THE

WORLD'S MOST HEAVILY ARMED

BORDER.

THE FIRST NORTH KOREAN

LEADER TO DO SO SINCE THE

KOREAN WAR, AMID CHEERS,

WARMING GREETING PRESIDENT

MOON.

HE THEN INVITED MOON TO

STEP INTO THE NORTH.

THE NORTH AND SOUTH ARE

STILL TECHNICALLY AT WAR,

BUT THE LEADERS BEHAVED

LIKE OLD FRIENDS.

FOR MOON, IT IS THE

FULFILLMENT OF A MAJOR

POLITICAL GOAL: TO

IMPROVE RELATIONS WITH THE

NORTH.

HIS CHALLENGE IS GETTING

KIM TO GET SPECIFIC ABOUT

HOW MUCH HE IS WILLING TO

REDUCE HIS NUCLEAR ARMS.

THE KOREAN SUMMIT LAYS THE

FOUNDATION FOR THE PLANNED

HISTORIC MEETING BETWEEN

KIM AND PRESIDENT TRUMP

THAT COULD COME NEXT

MONTH.

THIS ON THE HEELS OF NOW

SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE

POMPEO'S VISIT TO THE

NORTH EARLIER THIS MONTH.

NEWLY RELEASED PHOTOS SHOW

HIM MEETING WITH KIM, AND

IT APPEARS, PRESIDENT

TRUMP SAYS, THAT THE

DICTATOR IS BEHAVING LIKE

AN HONEST BROKER.

President Trump: HE

REALLY HAS BEEN VERY OPEN.

AND I THINK VERY

HONORABLE, FROM EVERYTHING

WE'RE SEEING.

WE HAVE BEEN TOLD DIRECTLY

THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO

HAVE THE MEETING AS SOON

AS POSSIBLE, AND WE THINK

THAT'S A GREAT THING FOR

THE WORLD.

Jennifer: KIM HOPES

TO USE HIS NUCLEAR MIGHT

AND A LEGITIMACY THAT WILL

COME WITH HAVING A MEETING

WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES TO FORGE A

PEACE TREATY WITH THE

SOUTH THAT ENDS THE KOREAN

WAR AND PUSHES THE 30,000

U.S. FORCES STATIONED IN

THE SOUTH OFF THE KOREAN

PENINSULA.

HOWEVER, IT IS UNLIKELY

THE U.S. WOULD LEAVE.

IN TIME, KIM IN VISIONS A

UNIFIED KOREA, LED BY THE

NORTH, THAT IS BEHOLDEN

NEITHER TO THE U.S. NOR

CHINA.

BUT SKEPTICS SUGGEST KIM

IS ONLY DANGLING

DISARMAMENT TO BUY MORE

TIME AND EASE TOUGH U.S.

SANCTIONS TO PERFECT ITS

NUCLEAR WEAPONS, WHILE

STILL COLLECTING

INTERNATIONAL AID.

President Trump:

MAYBE IT WILL BE

WONDERFUL, AND MAYBE IT

WON'T.

IF IT IS NOT GOING TO BE

FAIR AND REASONABLE AND

GOOD, I WILL, UNLIKE PAST

ADMINISTRATIONS, I WILL

LEAVE THE TABLE.

Jennifer: IN A NOTE,

KIM QUOTE: "A NEW HISTORY

BEGINS NOW, AT THE

STARTING POINT OF HISTORY

AND THE ERA OF PEACE."

TIME WILL TELL.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS.

Gordon: WELL, IT IS

AN HISTORIC DAY.

TECHNICALLY THE U.S. AND

SOUTH KOREA ARE STILL AT

WAR WITH NORTH KOREA.

THERE IS ONLY AN ARMISTICE

AGREEMENT.

THE NORTH HAS NEVER WANTED

TO HAVE PEACE.

THEY'VE WANTED TO STAY IN

A STATE OF WAR.

SO THIS IS AN HISTORIC

DAY.

AND IT IS AN HISTORIC DAY,

WHERE THE TWO LEADERS

CROSSED THAT BORDER AND

VISIT ONE ANOTHER.

SO THERE IS A LOT OF HOPE

HERE.

I KNOW IT HAS BEEN IN MANY

PEOPLE'S PRAYERS FOR

DECADES.

CAN NORTH AND SOUTH KOREA

UNIFY AGAIN?

CAN THERE BE PEACE ON THE

KOREAN PENINSULA?

SO LET'S BE HOPEFUL.

YES, WE NEED TO VERIFY

THINGS.

WE NEED TO NEGOTIATE

WISELY, BUT AT THE SAME

TIME, LET'S BE HOPEFUL

BECAUSE PEACE THERE WOULD

BE A WONDERFUL THING.

> IN OTHER NEWS, ONCE

AGAIN ISRAEL IS FACING

CRITICISM FROM THE UNITED

NATIONS.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THAT

STORY FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

Efrem: GORDON, THE

U.N. HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR

HUMAN RIGHTS SAYS ISRAEL

IS USING EXCESSIVE FORCE

AGAINST PALESTINIANS, WHO

HAVE BEEN STAGING MASS

PROTESTS LED BY HAMAS

ALONG THE GAZ T GAZA BORDER WITH

ISRAEL.

THEY SAY ISRAEL HASN'T

LISTENED TO WARNING BY THE

U.N. AND OTHERS.

THE ISRAELI ARMY HAS

DROPPED LEAFLETS CLOSE TO

THE GAZA BORDER, WARNING

PALESTINIANS TO STAY AWAY

FROM THE BORDER FENCE

DURING THE PROTESTS, AND

TELLING THEM THEY ENDANGER

THEIR LIVES IF THEY FOLLOW

HAMAS' DIRECTIVES.

> TENNESSEE LAWMAKERS

HAVE VOTED TO BUILD A

MONUMENT TO UNBORN

CHILDREN IN MEMORY OF THE

VICTIMS OF ABORTION.

THE MONUMENT WOULD STAND

ON THE GROUNDS OF THE

STATE CAPITAL IN

NASHVILLE.

IT WOULD BE INSCRIBED

"TENNESSEE MONUMENT TO

UNBORN CHILDREN."

THE MONUMENT WILL BE PAID

FOR BY PRIVATE FUNDS.

THE REPUBLICAN-LED SENATE

PASSED THE BILL FOR THE

MONUMENT THIS WEEK BY A

VOTE OF 23-3.

THEY NEED TO AGREE ON AN

AMENDMENT BEFORE SENDING

IT TO BILL HASLIN, AND

THEN GOES BACK TO THE

HOUSE, WHICH ARD APPROVED

IT LAST WEEK BY A VOTE OF

63-15.

> CHRISTIAN MI MINISTRIES

HAVE SOMETIMES BEEN CALLED

STREAMS OF GOD.

PAUL STRAND BRINGS US THIS

STORY FROM A MAJOR

GATHERING OF THESE

MINISTRY STREAMS IN

TORONTO, CANADA.

Reporter: TORONTO IS

SEEING SOME OF THE PLAINS

REIGNITING VERY POWERFULLY

POWERFULLY.

IT IS A GATHERING OF SOME

OF THE MOST POWERFUL

STREAMS OF MINISTRY THAT

HAVE BEEN USED IN REVIVAL

FOR THE PAST THREE

DECADES.

THEY A ALL GATHERED IN

TORONTO.

DANIEL, WHO IS SUCCESSOR

OF REINHARD BONNKE, SAYS

IT HAS SEEN MORE THAN

70 MILLIONLY SALVATIONS.

70 MILLION SALVATIONS.

IT ACTUALLY MAKES OUR

JOBS QUITE EASY.

WE JUST PRESENT JESUS TO

PEOPLE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

COMES IN AND DOES ALL OF

THE REST.

Reporter: HE SAYS

THEY HAVE BEEN CRYING OUT

FOR THIS FOR MORE THAN 30

YEARS.

BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD

WHO HAS TAKEN AWAY THE

SINS OF THE WORLD.

SO MANY PEOPLE ARE GETTING

SAVED, AND HE SHALL

BAPTIZE YOU WITH THE HOLY

WATER.

Reporter: HE SAID HE

HEARD ABOUT THIS MUCH

LARGER REVIVAL THAT IS YET

TO COME THE DAY THAT

AL-QAEDA BROUGHT DOWN THE

TWIN TOWERS.

I WATCHED THE TOWERS

COME DOWN, AND I SAID TO

THE LORD, LORD, DOES THIS

MEAN THAT THE REVIVAL IS

OVER?

AND THE LORD RESPONDED,

OH, NO.

REVIVAL IS NOT OVER.

Reporter: RICK JOYNER

BELIEVES IT IS CRUCIAL

THAT ALL OF THESE STREAMS

OF MINISTRY WORK IN

UNISON.

BECAUSE THERE IS A

MULTIPLICATION OF

AUTHORITY AND SPIRITUAL

AUTHORITY WHEN YOU COME

TOGETHER.

Reporter: HE BELIEVES

IT IS THE BEST KIND OF

WITNESS TO A FRAGMENTING

WORLD.

THEY'RE STARTING TO

LOVE EACH OTHER, COME

TOGETHER, HAVE UNITY, HAVE

PEACE, HAVE JOY.

ALL THESE THINGS THAT THE

WORLD IS BECOMING

INCREASING DEVOID OF.

I DO BELIEVE IN THE

BILLION-SOUL HARVEST.

Reporter: RANDY CLARK

WAS PREACHING HERE WHEN

THE TORONTO BLESSING BEGAN

IN THE 1990s.

HE POINTS OUT THAT SOME

HAVE SAID THIS WILL BE A

FACELESS, NAMELESS REVIVAL

BECAUSE GOD WANTS TO USE

EVERY PERSON, NOT JUST

EVANGELICAL SUPERSTARS.

IT DIDN'T MEAN THERE

WEREN'T LEADERS, BUT THE

LEADERS UNDERSTOOD THEIR

ROLE WAS TO RELEASE THE

OTHERS.

Reporter: HE CALLED

THE CROWD IN TORONTO TO

BECOME THOSE DISCIPLES,

ASKING THEM TO TAKE OFF

THEIR SHOES AND SAY, GOD,

SEND ME.

HOW SHALL THEY HEAR?

HE IS JUST LOOKING FOR

PEOPLE WHO ARE HUNGRY AND

OPEN, AND WHO WILL SAY,

GOD, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO

DO, HERE AM I.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND

AT THE "LIGHT THE FIRE

AGAIN" CONFERENCE IN

TORONTO.

Gordon: WELL, LET'S

BRING THE GOOD NEWS, AND

LET'S BRING IT AROUND THE

WORLD.

I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE

GREATEST IN-GATHERING IN

THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH.

WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL

TALKED ABOUT, THE FINAL

IN-GATHERING OF THE

GENTILES.

LET'S NOT JUST LOOK AT

NORTH AMERICA OR JUST LIKE

THE EUROPE.

LET'S LOOK AT THE MIDDLE

EAST, LET'S LOOK AT

CHINA -- ALL OF THOSE

WONDERFUL COUNTRIES AND

WONDERFUL PEOPLE, AND

REALIZING THAT GOD DIED

FOR THEM, AND LET'S BRING

THEM THE GOOD NEWS.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP,

FIVE YEARS AFTER LEAVING

THE SENATE, JOSEPH

LIEBERMAN GIVES HIS TAKE

ON POLITICS TODAY.

I'M AFRAID THAT THE

PARTIES ARE INCREASINGLY

BECOMING -- INSTEAD OF HOM

HOMOGENOUS IN TERMS OF

OPINIONS, BUT THEY'RE

BEGINNING TO BE LIKE

WARING TRIBES.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

HE HAS BEEN DOING SINCE HE

RETIRED, AFTER THIS.

RETIRED, AFTER THIS.

Gordon: WELL, DURING

HIS YEARS IN WASHINGTON,

SENATOR JOSEPH LIEBERMAN

EARNED A REPUTATION AS A

MAVERICK, AND CHARTED HIS

OWN POLITICAL PATH.

AND NOW IN RETIREMENT, CBN

NEWS HAS LEARNED THAT

HASN'T CHANGED.

RECENTLY HE SAT DOWN WITH

OUR JOHN JESSUP TO DISCUSS

PRESIDENT TRUMP, PARTISAN

POLITICS, AND OUR RICH

HERITAGE OF FAITH.

John: IT HAS BEEN

FIVE YEARS SINCE JOSEPH

LIEBERMAN LEFT THE SENATE,

A LIFE-LONG DEMOCRAT WHO

WON HIS FINAL RE-ELECTION

AS AN INDEPENDENT AFTER

LOSING TO A LEFT-LEANING

PRIMARY CHALLENGER.

DO YOU THINK THERE IS ROOM

FOR PEOPLE LIKE JOSEPH

LIEBERMAN IN THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY TODAY?

I'M WORRIED ABOUT IT.

I'M AFRAID THE PARTIES ARE

INCREASINGLY BECOMING

INSTEAD OF HOMOGENOUS IN

TERMS OF OPINIONS, THEY'RE

GETTING TO BE LIKE WARING

TRIBES.

John: STILL,

LIEBERMAN BELIEVES THE

NOVEMBER MID-TERMS FAVOR

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTLY, BUT

HE ALSO TOLD CBN NEWS THEY

SHOULDN'T BE TOO

CONFIDENT.

ALL THEY'VE GOT TO DO

IS GO BACK TO 2016.

MOST DEMOCRATS THOUGHT

THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO

CHANCE DONALD TRUMP WOULD

BE ELECTED PRESIDENT, BUT

THERE HE WAS.

Reporter: HE SUPPORTS

PRESIDENT TRUMP ON A

NUMBER OF ISSUES, LIKE HIS

TOUGH INSTANCE ON IRAN.

HE EVEN INTRODUCED ONE OF

THE CABINET NOMINEES TO

HIS FORMER SENATE

COLLEAGUES.

IN TERM, PRESIDENT TRUMP

CONSIDERED HIM AS A

REPLACEMENT FOR JAMES

COMEY, UNTIL LIEBERMAN

BOWED OUT OF THE RUNNING.

> A LOT OF OBSERVERS

DESCRIBE HIS TENURE SO FAR

AS TUMULTUOUS.

IT MAY JUST BE THAT IS

THE WAY HE IS, AND THAT'S

THE WAY HIS ADMINISTRATION

WILL BE.

I MUST SAY I AGREE WITH

SOME THINGS AND DISAGREE

WITH OTHERS.

I AGREE WITH HIM GENERALLY

ON FOREIGN POLICY.

I THINK HE HAS BROUGHT

SOME STRENGTH BACK TO OUR

FOREIGN POLICY.

BUT THE TRUTH IS, I WISH

THE PRESIDENT WOULD TWEET

A LITTLE LESS, AND NAME

CALL A LITTLE LESS, AND

JUST FOCUS ON POLICY AND

REALLY USE HIS SKILL AS A

NEGOTIATOR TO FIND COMMON

GROUND.

John: COMMON GROUND

IS FAMILIAR TE TERRITORY FOR

HIM.

ONCE AL GORE'S

RUNNINGMATE, HE WOULD

LATER BECOME CLOSE FRIENDS

WITH SEVERAL IN THE G.O.P.

DURING ERY TIM YOUR TIME IN THE

SENATE, YOU HAD UNIQUE

FRIENDSHIPS WITH LINDSEY

GRAHAM AND SENATOR JOHN

McCAIN.

THEY WERE GREAT

FRIENDS.

PEOPLE ASK ME IF I MISS

THE SENATE.

SOMETIMES.

BUT I MISS MY FRIENDS.

JOHN HAS A SERIOUS CANCER.

HE IS FIGHTING IT.

FROM EVERYTHING I KNOW,

THE TREATMENT IS

SUCCEEDING.

BUT FOR NOW IT LIMITS HIM.

SO I PRAY FOR HIM EVERY

DAY.

WASHINGTON NEEDS JOHN

McCAIN, WHETHER YOU

AGREE WITH HIM OR DISAGREE

WITH HIM ON EVERY ISSUE.

HE IS A REAL PATRIOT AND

SPEAKS HIS MIND AND IS

WILLING TO WORK ACROSS

PARTY LINES.

John: LIEBERMAN'S

LATEST VENTURE IS ABOUT

HIS LOVE OF THE LAW, BOTH

GOD'S LAW AS A JEW, AND

THE LAW AS A FORMER

PROSECUTOR.

THE BOOK IS ABOUT THE

10 COMMANDMENTS, REALLY,

AND ABOUT THE CENTRALITY

OF GOD'S GIVING GIVING OF THE 10

COMMANDMENTS, NOT ONLY TO

OUR FAITH, BUT TO OUR

VISION OF WHAT THE LAW IS.

THE EXODUS FROM EGYPT,

GOD'S LIBERATION OF THE

CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM

EGYPT, WAS ONLY THE

BEGINNING OF THE STORY.

IT WASN'T ALL ABOUT

FREEDOM ALONE, BECAUSE

FREEDOM ALONE IS NOT

ENOUGH.

FREEDOM WITHOUT LAW,

WITHOUT VALUES,

PARTICULARLY THAT GOD GAVE

US IN THE 10

COMMANDMENTS -- THAT KIND

OF FREEDOM WITHOUT LAW

PROBABLY LEADS TO

INJUSTICE, IMMORTALITY,

VIOLENCE, CHAOS.

SO THE END OF THE EXODUS

AND THE LIBERATION WAS THE

REVELATION.

John: AS FOR DIVISION

IN AMERICA, HE SAYS LOOK

NO FURTHER THAN THE PEOPLE

OF THE BOOK TO FIND

EXAMPLES WHERE UNITY

PREVAILS.

> I THINK IT IS

INTERESTING YOU JUST

MENTIONED JUDAISM AND

CHRISTIANITY.

THESE ARE TWO GROUPS THAT

HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN

CLOSELY ASSOCIATED.

I REALLY APPRECIATE

WHAT YOU YOU SAID SAID, JOHN,

BECAUSE I BELIEVE, AS I

LOOK BACK AT MY LIFE, WHAT

ARE SOME OF THE GREAT

CHANGES FOR THE BETTER

THAT I'VE SEEN.

ONE OF THEM IS THE COMING

TOGETHER OF JUDAISM AND

CHRISTIANITY.

THERE WAS ALWAYS THIS

STRAIN WITHIN CHRISTIANITY

OF A LOVE OF THE HEBREW

BIBLE AND A LOVE OF

ISRAEL.

IT WAS THERE IN THE

FOUNDING GENERATION OF

AMERICANS.

AND A LOT OF THAT IS

REFLECTED IN THE VALUES

THAT WERE EXPRESSED IN THE

DECLARATION OF

INDEPENDENCE O IN THE

CONSTITUTION.

WHY THIS HAS HAPPENED NOW,

I DON'T KNOW, BUT I'M VERY

GRATEFUL.

John: WE APPRECIATE

YOUR TIME.

JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: SENATOR

JOSEPH LIEBERMAN, ONE OF

THE GREAT PATRIOTS, AND

WONDERFUL WISDOM TO

ACKNOWLEDGE, YES, MORALITY

IS AT THE ROOT OF ALL

LIBERTY.

AND OUR CONSTITUTION, OUR

REPUBLIC, UNLESS IT IS

BASED ON THAT MORALITY, WE

DON'T HAVE MUCH CHANCE OF

SURVIVING.

SO WONDERFUL WORDS.

AND, YES, CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS ARE COMING TOGETHER.

WE'RE BECOMING ONE, IF YOU

WILL.

AND, AGAIN, THAT'S

FULFILLMENT OF WHAT

APOSTLE PAUL PREDICTED,

THAT THERE WOULD BE ONE

DAY, ONE NEW MAN.

WE'VE GOT A MOVIE FOR YOU,

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE

ABOUT ISRAEL IS DOING,

WHAT IS DRIVING THEM.

IT IS CALLED "TO LIFE,"

AND IT HIGHLIGHTS ALL OF

THE HUMANITARIAN WORLD

ISRAELIS ARE DOING,

WHETHER IT IS ISRAELI

N.G.O.s, ON EVEN THE

I.D.F.

YOU MAY NOT KNOW THAT THE

I.D.F. GOES ON MEDICAL

MISSIONS AROUND THE WORLD,

WHETHER IT IS TO NEPAL OR

TO HAITI.

AND IN THIS MOVIE, YOU'LL

LEARN WHAT DRIVES THEM.

TO ME, IT WAS A REAL

SURPRISE.

I THOUGHT I KNEW A LOT

ABOUT ISRAEL.

MY FIRST TRIP WAS BACK IN

1969.

SO I THOUGHT I KNEW A

WHOLE LOT.

BUT IN PRODUCING THIS

MOVIE, I LEARN SOMETHING

NEW: THEY SELF-IDENTIFY

WITH THE PROPHECY FROM

ISAIAH.

IT IS IN CHAPTER 49, VERSE

6, WHERE GOD SAYS, "I WILL

MAKE YOU A LIGHT TO THE

NATIONS."

SO YOU'LL HEAR FIRSTHAND

FROM THE VOLUNTEERS DOING

HUMANITARIAN WORK IN

REMOTE PLACES, HELPING

SYRIAN REFUGEES, HELPING

VICTIMS OF HURRICANES,

EARTHQUAKE, PROVIDING

SOLAR WATER POWER TO

UGANDA -- YOU'LL HEAR THEM

ALL SAY, I'M DOING THIS

BECAUSE I'M A LIGHT TO THE

NATIONS.

AND I FIND THAT WONDERFUL.

IN WATCHING THIS AND

PRODUCING IT, I STARTED

HOLDING UP A MIRROR TO

AMERICA.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU

HEARD AN AMERICAN SAY,

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE A

CITY ON THE HILL, WE'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE A LIGHT TO

THE NATIONS?

SO GET THIS.

IT IS AVAILABLE FOR YOU.

YOU CAN WATCH IT ONLINE OR

YOU CAN OWN THE D.V.D. FOR

A GIFT OF $10 OR MORE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

AND MY HOPE IS THIS D.V.D.

WILL ENCOURAGE PEOPLE, AND

ENCOURAGE NATIONS AROUND

THE WORLD, WHAT CAN WE DO

TO BE A LIGHT TO THE

NATIONS?

Terry: IT REALLY

SPOKE TO MES AS A

BELIEVER.

ME AS A BELIEVER.

IT IS A GREAT CHALLENGE TO

BE UNIFIED AND TO SAY, YOU

YOU KNOW, GOD HAS PLACED

US HERE FOR SUCH A TIME AS

THIS.

GET YOUR COPY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT.

> UP NEXT, DOCTORS HAVE

A GRIM REPORT FOR THE

SISTER OF A WOMAN WHO'S

CAR WAS CRUSHED UNDER A

SEMI.

THEY PRETTY MUCH TOLD

US SHE HAD -- WE HAD NO

HOPE.

THAT SHE WAS PROBABLY NOT

GOING TO MAKE IT.

THERE WAS NO BRAIN

ACTIVITY.

THEY KEPT HER ON LIFE

SUPPORT TO HARVEST HER

ORGANS.

Terry: SEE HOW THIS

WOMAN ON LIFE SUPPORT

STEPPED INTO HEAVEN AND

THEN MADE A MIRACULOUS

RECOVERY BACK HERE ON

EARTH.

PLUS...WE'RE GOING TO BE

PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR

REQUESTS, SO STAY WITH US.

Terry: WELL, ALL THIS

WEEK OUR CBN STAFF HAS

BEEN GATHERING IN THE

REGENT UNIVERSITY CHAPEL

AT NOON AS PART OF OUR

SPRING WEEK OF PRAYER.

AND WE'VE BEEN PRAYING FOR

THE REQUESTS OF YOU, OUR

PARTNERS AND VIEWERS.

YESTERDAY PAT ROBERTSON

WAS OUR FEATURED SPEAKER.

TAKE A LOOK.

Pat: WHAT IS OUR

OBLIGATION?

YOU LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD

WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND

YOUR SOUL AND YOUR MIND

AND YOUR STRENGTH.

THAT'S THE NUMBER ONE

COMMANDMENT.

GOD SAYS THIS: BECAUSE

YOU HAVE SET YOUR LOVE ON

ME, THEREFORE I WILL -- I

WILL RESCUE HIM, I WILL

PROTECT HIM.

HE WILL CALL ON ME AND I

WILL ANSWER HIM.

I WILL BE WITH HIM IN

TROUBLE.

I WILL DELIVER HIM AND

HONOR HIM.

WITH LONG LIFE, I WILL

SATISFY HIM AND SHOW HIM

MY SALVATION.

FOLKS, THAT'S THE REWARD

OF LOVING GOD.

Terry: WE'VE HAD

WONDERFUL MESSAGES ALL

WEEK LONG.

YOU CAN JOIN US TODAY FOR

CHAPEL.

JUST LOG ONTO cbn.com AT

NOON EASTERN TIME WHEN

WE'LL BE FEATURING THE

SERVICE LIVE.

AND TODAY'S FEATURED

SPEAKER IS MO ISOM.

Gordon: DOCTORS HAD

GIVEN UP ALL HOPE FOR

VALERIE.

SHE WAS ON LIFE SUPPORT

WITH NO BRAIN ACTIVITY,

BUT VALERIE'S SISTER

REFUSED TO BELIEVE THE

DOCTOR'S REPORT.

INSTEAD SHE RELIED ON A

SCRIPTURE FOR HER SISTER'S

HEALING, AND HE ALSO

BELIEVED THAT THE POSSIBLE

IMPOSSIBLE WAS POSSIBLE,

AGAINST ALL ODDS.

IN THE DREAM, I WAS

DRIVING IN MY CAR.

AND I CAME UPON THIS

ACCIDENT THAT HAD TO DO

WITH SEMI TRUCKS.

SO WHEN I STARTED WAKING

UP OUT OF THE DREAM, I

COULD FEEL IT WAS A DREAM

FROM THE LORD AND I FELT

BURDENED.

AND SO I BEGAN TO PRAY

RIGHT AWAY.

Reporter: MARCH OF

2000, TWO MONTHS AFTER

CHERYL'S DRAMATIC DREAM,

HER SISTER, VALERIE, WAS

IN A THREE-WAY PILEUP NEAR

HER HOME IN ARIZONA.

VALERIE'S CAR WAS CRUSHED

UNDER THE WEIGHT OF A SEMI

TRUCK.

IT TOOK FIRST RESPONDERS

SEVERAL HOURS TO EXTRACT

HER FROM THE VEHICLE.

SHE GOT WORD THAT VALERIE

WAS UNCONSCIOUS AND NOT

EXPECTED TO SURVIVE.

WE HUNG UP THE PHONE,

AND I IMMEDIATELY I

STARTED PRAYING, GOD, HOW

DO YOU WANT ME TO PRAY FOR

VALERIE?

AND HE SAID, DECLARE THE

WORKS OF THE LORD.

Reporter: THOSE WORDS

GAVE HER HOPE FOR HER

SISTER'S LIFE.

IT STIRRED MY FAITH TO

BELIEVE THAT THE

IMPOSSIBLE IS POSSIBLE

ALREADY, BEFORE I EVEN SAW

HER.

SO WHEN I DID SEE HER, I

WAS NOT MOVED BY WHAT I

SAW IN THE HOSPITAL,

BECAUSE I DIDN'T EVEN

RECOGNIZE HER, BUT WHAT

MOVED ME WAS THE WORD OF

GOD.

Reporter: A PRAYER

CHAIN QUICKLY STARTED A AS

WORD SPREAD THROUGH THEIR

CHILDREN COMMUNITY.

BUT WHEN CHERYL GOT TO THE

HOSPITAL, DOCTORS GAVE HER

A GRIM REPORT.

THEY PRETTY MUCH TOLD

US WE HAD NO HOPE, THAT

SHE WAS PROBABLY NOT GOING

TO MAKE IT.

THERE WAS NO BRAIN

ACTIVITY.

THEY KEPT HER ON LIFE

SUPPORT TO HARVEST HER

ORGANS.

Reporter: CHERYL

WOULD NOT GIVE UP.

SHE GATHERED FRIENDS AND

CONTINUED PRAYING FOR

VALERIE TO WAKE FROM HER

COMA.

I WANT THOSE THAT I

HAVE ALREADY PRAYED WITH

OR WHO ARE ONE IN SPIRIT,

WHO WILL BELIEVE GOD'S

WORD AND WE'RE GOING TO GO

TO WAR AND WE'RE GOING TO

PRAY OVER VALERIE.

SO WE TOOK A TIME ONE

DAY -- I THINK IT WAS ON A

WEDNESDAY -- AND WE WENT

INTO THE CHAPEL AND WE

TOOK OVER THE CHAPEL, AND

THE CHAPEL BECAME LIKE A

WAR ROOM.

WE WENT IN THERE AND BEGAN

TO SPEAK LIFE OVER HER, WE

PRAYED OVER HERE.

Reporter: THE PRAYERS

CONTINUED FOR DAYS, BUT

THERE WAS NO VISIBLE SIGNS

OF IMPROVEMENT.

MEANWHILE, VALERIE WAS

EXPERIENCING A VERY

DIFFERENT REALITY, IN

HEAVEN.

WHEN I STEPPED INTO

HEAVEN, I HIT THE LIGHT.

AND I WAS LITERALLY

BLINDED BY THE LIGHT.

I'M BLINDED STILL TODAY OF

THE LIGHT OF HIS PRESENCE.

I STOOD UP, I TURNED

AROUND, AND THERE WAS

JESUS.

AND I DEN I DON'T KNOW IF I RAN

TO HIM OR HE CAME TO ME.

BUT ALL OF A SUDDEN WE

WERE THERE.

HE JUSTIC JUST SMILED AT ME, AND

I FELT ALL OF THIS EMOTION

THAT HE HAD FOR ME.

I FINALLY FELT LIKE I WAS

HOME.

I STEPPED INTO FINALLY

WHERE I BELONGED.

THIS IS WHERE I BELONGED.

I WAS HOME.

Reporter: VALERIE HAD

BEEN A CHRISTIAN FOR MOST

OF HER LIFE, BUT SHE SAID

SHE NEVER BELIEVED THAT

GOD REALLY LOVED HER.

IN MY HEART OF HEARTS,

I DID NOT BELIEVE THAT I

WAS WORTHY OF THIS LOVE.

BECAUSE I ALWAYS FELT LIKE

I WAS NEVER GOING TO

MEASURE UP TO WHAT I

THOUGHT THE LORD WANTED

FROM ME.

SO WHEN I FELT HIS EMOTION

AND FELT HOW HE FELT ABOUT

ME, AND THE THINGS THAT I

THOUGHT ABOUT MYSELF, LIKE

MY FLAWS OR MY ISSUES, HE

NEVER EVEN NOTICED.

HE JUST WANTS ME.

IT WASN'T ANYTHING THAT I

DID FOR HIM.

IT WASN'T MY PERFORMANCE.

NOTHING.

IT WAS -- IT WAS JUST ME.

I WASN'T JUST LOVED BY

HIM, BUT HE WAS IN LOVE

WITH ME.

AND I WAS HIS.

THAT WAS IT.

I WAS DONE FOR.

AND I THOUGHT -- BUT THEN

REALIZING THIS IS HOW HE

FEELS ABOUT HIS CREATION,

THOSE THAT HE HAS CREATED,

WHETHER THEY KNOW HIM YET

OR NOT.

THIS IS HOW HE FEELS.

Reporter: VALERIE

SAYS SHE FELT LIKE SHE WAS

THERE FOR A THOUSAND YEARS

AND EXPERIENCED LIFE AND

LOVE LIKE SHE NEVER HAD ON

EARTH.

THEN JESUS TOLD HER SHE

HAD TO GO BACK WITH A

MESSAGE.

HE SAID, YOU CAN STAY

IF YOU WANT TO.

AND I SAID, WELL, IF I CAN

STAY, I'M STAYING WITH

YOU.

I'M GOING TO STAY WITH

YOU.

AND HE SAID, BUT YOUR

PURPOSE ISN'T DONE.

AND HE SAID, I WANT YOU TO

TELL THEM -- TELL THE

PEOPLE WHO I AM, WHO I

REALLY AM.

BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE WAS,

YOU KNOW, RELIGIOUS.

I THOUGHT HE WAS MEAN.

I THOUGHT HE WAS...UM, I

DIDN'T THINK HE WAS, YOU

KNOW, HUMAN.

AND HE IS HUMAN.

HE WILL ALWAYS BE HUMAN,

BUT HE IS GOD.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE

HIM.

I HATED LEAVING.

BUT I HAD TO COME BACK.

AND THE NEXT THING I KNEW,

I WAS MAKING, LIKE, MY

DESCENT BACK TO THE EARTH.

Reporter: AT THE

HOSPITAL, DAYS AFTER THE

ACCIDENT, THE MEDICAL TEAM

BEGAN REACTING TO NEW

SIGNS OF LIFE.

AND THE DOCTOR IS

CHECKING, HE IS FLASHING

THE LIGHT IN HER EYES.

AND HE LOOKS AT ME AND HE

SAID, GET READY, I THINK

YOUR SISTER IS COMING

BACK.

I SEE SOME BRAIN ACTIVITY.

I JUST BEGAN TO REJOICE,

AND I SAID, THANK YOU,

LORD.

Reporter: VALERIE

SOON WOKE UP AND

EXPERIENCED A MIRACULOUS

RECOVERY.

TWO AND A HALF MONTHS

AFTER THE ACCIDENT, SHE

WALKED OUT OF THE

HOSPITAL, HEALED BOTH

PHYSICALLY AND

SPIRITUALLY.

I KNOW WHO I REALLY AM.

AND SO WHEN I HAD TO DEAL

WITH, YOU KNOW, COMING

BACK, MY TIME WITH THE

LORD IS WHAT CARRIED ME

THROUGH MY RECOVERY.

WHILE VALERIE WAS IN

HEAVEN, GETTING A

REVELATION OF THE LOVE OF

JESUS, I WAS ON EARTH

GETTING A REVELATION OF

THE LOVE OF JESUS.

THERE IS A LOVE THAT I'VE

EXPERIENCED OF JESUS' LOVE

THAT I HAVE NEVER

EXPERIENCED BEFORE AS A

CHRISTIAN.

Reporter: CHERYL AND

VALERIE LOOK BACK ON THEIR

EXPERIENCE AMAZED AND

THANK FOUL FOTHANKFUL FOR THE ANSWERED

PRAYERS AND LOVE THEY EACH

RECEIVED AT THEIR TIME OF

NEED.

I WAS WORTH THE PRICE

THEY PAID, AND THAT BLEW

ME AWAY.

WE ARE WORTH THE PRICE

THAT HE PAID FOR US.

IT WAS THE POWER OF

PRAYER, TO SEE GOD BRING

FORTH A MIRACLE.

BELIEVE THE WORD OF THE

LORD.

STAND ON HIS WORD.

GET A SCRIPTURE AND STAND

ON THAT WORD.

AND CONTINUE TO PRAY.

NO MATTER HOW BAD IT

LOOKS, EVEN WHEN THE

DOCTORS GIVE YOU A BAD

REPORT, BELIEVE IN THE

REPORT OF THE LORD, WHICH

IS A GOOD REPORT, AND

STAND IN FAITH BELIEVING

FOR YOUR MIRACLE, AND I

KNOW GOD WILL GIVE THEM A

MIRACLE.

Gordon: WHAT A

WONDERFUL STORY.

HERE IS A THOUGHT FOR YOU:

YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO DEAD

FOR A RESURRECTION.

AND HERE IS VALERIE,

BRAIN-DEAD.

THE DOCTORS ARE SAYING,

WELL, WE'RE KEEPING HER ON

LIFE SUPPORT BECAUSE WE

WANT TO HARVEST HER

ORGANS.

SHE IS AN ORGAN DONOR.

AND THERE IS NO BRAIN

ACTIVITY.

BUT TO BELIEVE THROUGH ALL

OF THAT AND THEN VALERIE

COMES FORTH, AND NOT JUST

COMES FORTH BACK INTO

LIFE, BUT TO COMPLETELY

RECOVER, WITH NO BRAIN

INJURY, NO LINGERING

EFFECTS FROM THE

ACCIDENT -- WHAT A

WONDERFUL THING.

WE SERVE A WONDERFUL GOD.

AND THE WONDERFUL NEWS

ABOUT THE WONDERFUL GOD IS

YOU CAN KNOW HIM.

AND YOU CAN KNOW HIM

PERSONALLY.

AND YOU CAN KNOW HIS

PERSONALITY.

AND YOU CAN UNDERSTAND HOW

MUCH HE LOVES YOU.

SO LET'S NOT GO TO HIM

THINKING SOMEHOW HE IS

ANGRY WITH US OR HE'S MEAN

OR WE HAVEN'T FOLLOWED ALL

OF THE RULES, OR ANYTHING

LIKE THAT.

LET'S COME TO HIM

BELIEVING THAT HE LOVED US

SO MUCH THAT HE DIED FOR

US, THAT BY HIS STRIPES WE

ARE HEALED.

HE PAID THE PRICE.

WE ARE REDEEMED.

HE IS PURSUING US WITH AN

ENDLESS LOVE.

AND HE WANTS US TO BE WITH

HIM FOR ALL ETERNITY.

WHEN YOU YO GET THOSE FACTS

STRAIGHT, WELL THEN FAITH

STARTS TO GET REALLY EASY.

SO LET'S GET THE EASY

FAITH THAT COMES FROM HIS

PRESENCE, HIS LOVE, HIS

ABILITY.

NOW, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY.

AND THIS IS OUR WEEK OF

PRAYER.

WE'VE GOT SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS BEFORE US.

AND HERE IS ONE THA, I WANT

SOMEONE SAYING, PLEASE

ALL OF THESE ARE HIS

TERRY, YOU'VE GOT

SOMETHING?

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH SOME KIND

OF A CONDITION IN YOUR

STOMACH.

IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO

WITH THE LINING OF YOUR

STOMACH, BUT IT HAS MADE

LIFE SO UNPLEASANT FOR

YOU.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION.

YOU'RE GOING TO BEGIN TO

FEEL A WARMTH COME THROUGH

TO YOUR DIAPHRAGM AREA AS

GOD COMPLETELY HEALS YOU.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE YOU'RE WATCHING

FROM A HOSPITAL, AND

YOU'VE JUST GOT THROUGH

BRAIN SURGERY.

I JUST SEE A PICTURE OF

THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD WHERE

IT HAS BEEN PARTIALLY

SHAVED, AND I SEE THE

STITCH MARKS.

AND YOU'RE JUST CRYING

OUT, LORD, DELIVER ME FROM

THIS.

AND WE SPEAK TO EVERY

TUMOR, BE GONE NOW.

REPRODUCE NO MORE.

LET THERE BE COMPLETE AND

TOTAL HEALING OF YOUR

BRAIN.

RESTORATION OF YOUR

THOUGHTS AND MEMORIES.

LET EVERYTHING CONCERNING

YOU BE WHOLE NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

> THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU'VE HAD A PINCHED NERVE

IN YOUR NECK, AND IT HAS

CAUSED SHOOTING, NUMBING

PAIN, AND GOD HAS JUST

HEALED ALL OF THAT.

SOMEONE ELSE WITH

RECURRING MIGRAINES, AND

THERE IS A SINUS

CONDITION -- GOD IS

HEALING MANY RIGHT NOW.

JUST STRETCH FORTH YOUR

HAND AND REALIZE THAT THE

KINGDOM OF GOD IS NEAR YOU

NOW.

HE IS ABLE AND WILLING TO

HEAL YOU NOW.

JUST REACH UP AND TAKE IT

IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A JAW OUT OF

ALIGNMENT, AND IT HAS JUST

GONE BACK INTO PLACE.

JUST THANK THE LORD AND

RECEIVE IT.

Gordon: SOMEONE ELSE

WITH DIFFICULTY

SWALLOWING, AND THERE IS

LIKE A LUMP ON THE RIGHT

SIDE OF YOUR VOICE BOX AND

YOU'RE REALLY WORRIED

ABOUT IT.

YOU HAVEN'T SEEN A DOCTOR.

LET THAT LUMP JUST

DISAPPEAR NOW IN THE NAME

OF JESUS.

LORD, WE THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE

THE HEALER, THE DELIVERER,

OUR ANSWERER, LORD GOT.

WE THANK YOU YOU FOR I FOR IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, TELL US ABOUT YOUR

GOOD NEWS.

GIVE US A CALL:

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD WILL OBSERVE AN

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF

PRAYER AND FASTING FOR

NORTH KOREA SATURDAY.

IT MARKS THE FIRST DAY OF

NORTH KOREA FREEDOM WEEK

AND AIMS TO RAISE

AWARENESS OF HUMAN RIGHTS

ABUSES IN THAT COUNTRY.

THE THEME OF THIS YEAR'S

FREEDOM WEEK IS "TRUTH

WILL SET THEM FREE."

THE ORGANIZERS DECIDED ON

THIS THEME AFTER NORTH

KOREAN DEFECTS TOLD THEM

ONLY THE TRUTH OF THE

GOSPEL CAN CHANGE THE

COUNTRY.

YOU CAN FIND OUT WHY THE

PRAYER WARRIORS SAY

THEY'RE TAKING ON THE

DEMONIC POWERS AND MORE ON

THIS ONGOING EFFORT ON

BEHALF OF THE NORTH KOREAN

PEOPLE AT cbnnews.com.

> "OPERATION BLESSING"

IS HELPING TO IMPROVE THE

LIVES OF KINDERGARTENS IN

THE WEST BANK.

THE PLAYGROUNDS WERE OLD

AND DAMAGED AND UNSAFE FOR

CHILDREN TO USE.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

INSTALLED A NEW BATHROOM

AND INSTALLED FOUR NEW

SINKS SO THEY COULD

PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE.

AND THEY REPLACED THE

PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT.

THE CHILDREN NOW HAVE A

HEALTHIER AND SAFER

ENVIRONMENT TO PLAY.

> YOU CAN LEARN MORE

BLESSING" IS DOING BY

GORDON AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE OF TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

THAT'S COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: MO ISOM WERE

YOU JUST NINE YEARS OLD

WHEN SHE SAW A POKER CARD

EMBELLISHED WITH

PORNOGRAPHIC IMAGES.

SHE SAID THOSE IMAGES WERE

INSTANTLY BURNED INTO HER

MEMORY, AND ULTIMATELY LED

HER TO A DECADES-LONG PORN

ADDICTION.

SHE WAS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

WITH HER SECRET ADDICTION

WELL-HIDDEN.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: MO ISOM HAS

PACKED A LOT OF LIVING

INTO 28 YEARS.

AS AN ALL-AMERICAN

GOALKEEPER, SHE HOLDS THE

ALL-TIME SCHOOL RECORD IN

WOMEN'S SOCCER, WITH 35

VICKS TORIE35VICTORIES AND 25 SHUTOUTS.

MO WAS ALSO THE FIRST

FEMALE IN THE COUNTRY TO

TRY OUT FOR AND TRAIN WITH

AN S.C.C. DIVISION ONE

MEN'S FOOTBALL TEAM, THE

TIGERS AT L.S.U.

BUT HER LIFE WAS

CHALLENGED WITH ADVERSITY

AND UNEXPECTED TRAGEDY.

THE MOMENT THE THREE

POLICE OFFICERS WALKED

INTO THE ROOM MY MOM AND

MY SISTER AND I WERE IN

AND TOLD US THEY HAD FOUND

MY DAD'S REMAINS, THE

WORLD FROZE.

Reporter: AFTER HER

FATHER'S DEATH, MO WAS IN

AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT,

WHICH BROUGHT HER FACE TO

FACE WITH A GOD WHO LOVED

HER.

AND THAT STARTED A NEW

CHAPTER IN HER LIFE.

IN 2013, SHE BECAME A "NEW

YORK TIMES" BEST-SELLING

AUTHOR WITH HER BOOK

"WRECK MY LIFE: JOURNEY

FROM BROKEN TO BOLD."

BEFORE WRITING HER SECOND

BOOK "SEX, JESUS, AND THE

CONVERSATIONS THE CHURCH

FORGOT."

SHE MARRIED AND AND THEY HAVE

TWO DAUGHTER, AUTUMN IN

ASHER.

Terry: PLEASE WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB," MO

ISOM.

THANK YOU.

IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE.

Terry: GOD HAS MADE

YOUR VOICE POWERFUL, NOT

JUST YOUR VOICE, BUT YOUR

WILLINGNESS TO BE BRAVE

AND TALK ABOUT THINGS THAT

PEOPLE HIDE FROM.

YOU'VE BEEN VERY SUCK FULL

SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR LIFE

ABOUT SO MANY AREAS.

WHEN IT COMES TO SEXUAL

ADDICTION OR ISSUES OF ANY

KIND, THERE IS A LOT OF

SHAME ATTACHED TO THAT.

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO GO

PUBLIC WITH THIS?

FOR THAT VERY REASON.

I THINK THAT THE ENEMY

USES SEXUAL SIN TO SHAME

US INTO SILENCE.

AND YET IF YOU LOOK AROUND

OUR WORLD, AROUND OUR

CULTURE RIGHT NOW, IT IS

ONE OF THE GREATEST ISSUES

WE'RE WRESTLING WITH.

AND SO MY CONFUSION COMES

IN, THEN WHY ARE WE

SILENT?

WHY ARE WE NOT SPEAKING

ABOUT THESE STRUGGLES AND

ABOUT THE FREEDOM THAT CAN

COME IN JESUS' NAME FROM

THESE THINGS.

Terry: WHICH ACTUALLY

SETS OTHERS FREE.

EXACTLY.

Terry: GO BACK TO

THAT NINE-YEAR-OLD TIME

WITH THE POKER CARD.

TELL US WHAT HAPPENED?

I WAS CLIMBING INTO MY

DAD'S TRUCK AND OPENED THE

DOOR, AND HE HAD A LOT

STUFFED BEHIND THE SEATS,

AND SOME THINGS FELL OUT.

AND I PICKED UP ONE OF THE

PIECES OF PAPER AND IT WAS

A POKER CARD, BUT IT HAD A

PORNOGRAPHIC IMAGE ON THE

BACK.

AND IT WAS MY FIRST TIME

TO SEE THESE GRAPHIC

THINGS.

AND EVEN BEING YOUNG AND

NOT FULLY UNDERSTANDING,

IT STILL SEARED SOMETHING

IN MY HEART.

YOU WOULD THINK WE WOULD

RUN FROM THAT, BUT QUITE

THE OPPOSITE HAPPENS

USUALLY.

IT TRIGGERED THIS

CURIOSITY IN ME, AND IT

JUST LED ME INTO THE

DARKNESS OF NAVIGATING

THROUGH STRUGGLES WITH

WANTING TO SET THESE

THINGS BEFORE MY EYES.

Terry: AND THE POKER

CARD IS IN YOUR DADDY'S

CAR.

HOW DID THIS IMPACT YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR DAD

OVER THE YEARS?

REALLY TREMENDOUSLY.

BECAUSE I THEN BEGAN TO

SEE -- I HAD COME INTO THE

OFFICE WHERE HE WAS ON THE

COMPUTER, AND HE WOULD

TURN IT OFF QUICKLY.

AND I WOULD SEE THINGS

THAT WERE KEEPING THINGS

OUT OF THE ARMS OF MY

MOMMY.

THAT IS HARD ON A YOUNG

HEART.

I BECAME RESENTFUL AND

CONFUSED, AND EVEN MORE

SHAME-FILLED BECAUSE IT

WAS THINGS THAT I INTRIGUED

ME.

AND I SAW HOW IT WAS

AFFECTING THEIR MARRIAGE.

AND YET I WAS STRUGGLING

WITH THE SAME URGES AND

TEMPTATIONS.

IT IS JUST BROKENNESS THAT

BREEDS BROKENNESS.

Terry: I SEE THIS IN

KIDS, WHEN THEY'RE VERY

UNHAPPY THAT THEIR PARENTS

SMOKE CIGARETTES.

AND THEY THROW THEM OUT

AND CRY, AND THEN THEY

GROW UP AND THEY SMOKE.

RIGHT.

Terry: SO THERE IS A

HOOK.

HOW DID THIS IMPACT YOUR

RELATIONSHIPS AS YOU GREW

UP AND BECAME A YOUNG

WOMAN AND MOVED INTO

ADULTHOOD.

PORN BEGAN TO SHAPE MY

PERSPECTIVE OF STRENGTH

AND POWER AND BEAUTY, AND

WHAT PEOPLE DESIRE FROM

WOMEN.

THAT KIND OF ESCORTED ME

INTO ACTING THINGS OUT IN

THE SAME WAY, INTO PROMISE

PROMISCUITY, INTO SEEKING

OTHERS TO GIVE ME WORTH

AND AFFIRMATION.

WHEN WE DON'T KNOW CHRIST

AND WE DON'T KNOW WHO'S WE

ARE, AND THAT I INHERENT

WORTH AND VALUE AND THAT

HE DIED FOR TO REDEEM US,

WE CAN GO DOWN A LONG AND

WINDING TRAIL OF

STRUGGLING.

Terry: AND EVEN AFTER

YOU KNEW CHRIST, BECAUSE

IT HAD ITS HOOK IN YOU,

YOU STILL STRUGGLED SO

MUCH IN IT, WHICH ONLY

DEMEANS YOUR OWN

SELF-VALUE, RIGHT?

YEAH.

SEXUAL SIN JUST HAS A

STRONG STRANGLEHOLD ON US,

OFTENTIMES IN MANY WAYS.

AND AFTER COMING TO KNOW

CHRIST, AND AFTER HAVING

HIM FREE ME OF THIS

STRUGGLE WITH PORNOGRAPHY,

AND KNOWING THE POWER OF

REDEMPTION THERE, STILL AT

TIMES, WHEN TEMPTATION

CAME, I CHOSE TO CHOOSE

FOR MYSELF AND STUMBLED

YET AGAIN.

BUT THE CONVICTION THAT

COMES WITH THAT, WHEN WE

KNOW THE BEAUTY OF

FREEDOM, AND YET WE STILL

WALK BACK INTO BONDAGE,

IT'S HEAVY.

AND GOD HAD TO DO A GREAT

WORK IN MY HEART OF

BREAKING CHAINS AND TIES

AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND

CONFUSION, AND IT TOOK

TIME.

AND IT TOOK A LOT OF

FORGIVENESS, AND IT TOOK A

LOT OF EXTENDING MYSELF TO

ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM

OTHERS.

AND IT TOOK RECKONING WITH

THESE SEXUAL STRUGGLES TO

TRULY FIND HEALING.

BECAUSE GOD INVITES US TO

FIND HEALING.

Terry: YOUR MOM

TALKED ABOUT SEX WHEN YOU

WERE GROWING UP.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK

THAT'S ENOUGH.

WHAT DIDN'T SHE SAY THAT

SHE COULD HAVE THAT WOULD

HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE?

I DON'T FAULT MY MOM.

SHE WAS ALWAYS VERY OPEN

ABOUT THESE TYPES OF

CONVERSATIONS.

BUT I WAS QUICK TO GRAB ON

TO SOMETHING.

WE TALKED ABOUT VIRGINITY.

SO I GRABBED ON TO

VIRGINITY AND WAVED IT AS

THIS PROUD BANNER OF

UNDERSTANDING.

AND I THINK A LOT OF TIMES

THE CHURCH WILL TALK ABOUT

THE DOs B AND DON'Ts,

BUT WE DON'T TALK ABOUT

WHAT GOD REALLY CARES

ABOUT, WHICH IS PUR PURITY.

PURITY OF HEART.

AND SO WHEN THE

CONVERSATION STOPS AT

VIRGINITY, OUR

CONVERSATION THEN BECOMES,

OKAY, HOW FAR IS TOO FAR.

GOD SPEAKS OF PURITY IN

HIS WORD, THAT HE DESIRES

PURITY FOR OUR LIVES.

Terry: AND IT ALSO

DOESN'T ADDRESS WHAT GOD'S

PURPOSE AND INTENTION FOR

THE MARRIAGE BED IS

BECAUSE WILL IS SO MUCH

THAT IS SKEWED IN OUR

CULTURE TODAY.

AND YOU YOU TALK I TALK IN YOUR BOOK

ABOUT BECOMING ONE, ABOUT

THAT HOLY PART OF SEX THAT

WAS GOD'S PLAN.

YES.

SEX IS GOD'S INVENTION.

IT IS A GIFT GIVEN TO US

BY GOD.

AND HE INSTRUCTS US IN

CERTAIN AND PARTICULAR

WAYS AROUND IT BECAUSE HE

KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR US.

SEX IS AN ACT OF WORSHIP.

IT IS A WEAPON AGAINST THE

ENEMY IN MARRIAGE.

IT IS A UNIFYING WEAPON

THAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

BUT WHEN WE ARE, YOU KNOW,

EXERCISING IT OUTSIDE OF

GOD'S DESIGN, AND THEN

STRUGGLING WITH THE PAIN

AND THE BONDAGE THAT THAT

INFLICTS, WE CAN OFTEN

CARRY THAT SOMETIMES INTO

MARRIAGE.

MY SISTER-IN-LAW TOLD ME

THE GREATEST QUOTE ONE

TIME.

SHE SAID, PRIOR TO

MARRIAGE, THE ENEMY WILL

DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO

DRIVE YOU TOGETHER, AND

AFTER MARRIAGE, THE ENEMY

WILL DO EVERYTHING HE CAN

TO DRIVE YOU APART.

I THINK WHEN WE CAN COME

TO WRAP OUR HEARTS AND

HANDS AROUND GOD'S

BEAUTIFUL DESIGN, IT CAN

SAVE OUR MARRIAGES.

IT CAN SERVE OUR

MARRIAGES.

IT CAN BECOME SOMETHING

THAT WE OPERATE IN AS

HUSBAND AND WIFE IN GREAT

BEAUTY IN MARRIAGE.

Terry: AND AS

PARENTS, I WANT TO SAY,

WHETHER YOU YO HAVE STRUGGLED

WITH SOME FORM OF SEX

ADDICTION, OR MAYBE YOU'RE

A PARENT AND YOU YOU ARE

THINKING, HOW DO I PROTECT

MY KIDS, MO'S BOOK IS

AVAILABLE WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

AND SHE IS ALSO OUR

FEATURED SPEAKER AT OUR

NOON CHAPEL TODAY.

AGAIN, IF YOU WANT TO JOIN

US, GO TO cbn.com AT

NOON EASTERN TIME.

AND WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU

BE THERE WITH US.

THANKS, MO.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING
