Pat: WELL, HAPPY DAY

AFTER MEMORIAL DAY.

HAPPY EVERYTHING TO ALL OF

YOU.

WE'RE DELIGHTED TO HAVE

YOU WITH US ON "THE 700

CLUB."

WELL, THE FORECASTERS SAY

ALBERTO STILL POSSESS A

THREAT AFTER ITS LANDFALL

ON MEMORIAL DAY.

THE STORM IS DUMPING HEAVY

RAINS IN THE SOUTH,

RAISING RISKS OF

FLASHFLOODING.

Terry: ONE MARYLAND

TOWN FELT THE FULL FORCE

OF HEAVY RAINS THIS

WEEKEND.

RESIDENTS IN ELLICOTT CITY

ARE SURVEYING DAMAGE FROM

THE DEVASTATING FLOODS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THAT

STORY.

Charlene: SUB

TROPICAL STORM ALBERTO

MADE LANDFALL MONDAY

AFTERNOON IN THE FLORIDA

PANHANDLE.

FLORIDA'S GOVERNOR ISSUING

THIS WARNING TO

RESIDENTS...

BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL

OUT THERE.

Charlene: TROPICAL

RAINS TRAVELLED TO THE

NORTH CAROLINAS, WHERE A

LOCAL NEWS CREW WAS KILLED

AFTER A FALLING TREE

STRUCK THEIR S.U.V.

ANOTHER SYSTEM POUNDED

MARYLAND WITH HEAVY RAIN.

HISTORIC FLOODING

DEVASTATED THE TOWN OF

ELLICOTT CITY.

MORE THAN EIGHT INCHES OF

RAIN IN THREE HOURS WASHED

AWAY CARS, ROADS, HOMES,

AND BUSINESSES.

PEOPLE CLIMBED OUT TO

HIGHER GROUND TO ESCAPE

THE RUSHING WATER.

THE WATER IS MUDDY

WATER, AND IT IS MOVING

REALLY, REALLY QUICKLY.

AND THERE IS NO WAY YOU

COULD PROCESS IT IS.

Charlene: 300 PEOPLE

WERE RESCUED.

EDDISON HERMOND IS

MISSING, AFTER HE FELL

INTO THE FLOODWATERS,

TRYING TO HELP A WOMAN

SEARCHING FOR HER CAT.

IT JUST SWEPT HIM AWAY.

Charlene: IN 20167, 2016,

THE CITY WAS HAMMERED BY

FLOODING.

WE ARE GOING TO

REBUILD.

WE'VE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD.

WE KNOW THE STAR, AND

WE'RE REBUILDING.

Charlene: SIMILAR

FLASHFLOODS COULD HIT THE

SOUTH IN THE COMING DATE,

AS DRENCHING RAINS SPREAD

OVER ALABAMA AND GEORGIA,

AS IT HEADS TO TENNESSEE

AND THE CAROLINAS.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: GOING OVERSEAS

NOW, ISRAEL IS STRIKING

BACK AFTER AN ATTACK FROM

GAZA.

MORTAR FIRE CAME IN.

HOPEFULLY THE IRON DOME

STOPPED MOST OF THEM.

BUT EFREM GRAHAM HAS MORE

OF OUR TOP STORIES FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

HERE IS EFREM.

Efrem: PAT, ISRAEL'S

MILITARY STRUCK TARGETS IN

GAZA ON TUESDAY, IN

ESPAORESPONSE TO A MORTAR

BARAGE.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

PROMISED TO RESPOND WITH,

QUOTE, "GREAT FORCE" TO

THE ATTACK.

THE IRON DOME AERIAL

DEFENSE SYSTEM INTERCEPTED

MOST OF THE 25 MORTARS.

ONE REPORTEDLY LANDED

OUTSIDE A KINDERGARTEN,

BUT NO CHILDREN WERE

THERE.

RESIDENTS RAN FOR BOMB

SHELTERS AS THOSE SIRENS

SOUNDED.

MY DAUGHTER HAD THE

BABY IN THE CARRIAGE, AND

HAD TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT A

WAY TO GET THE BABY AND

HER 3-YEAR-OLD INTO THE

SAFE ROOM, AT THE SAME

TIME WHILE SHE HEARS THE

RED ALERTS GOING OFF,

WHILE SHE HEARS THE

EXPLOSIONS IN THE

BACKGROUND.

IT HAS BEEN A REALLY SCARY

MORNING.

Efrem: PALESTINIAN

ACTIVISTS HAVE BEEN

HOLDING MASSIVE PROTESTS

ON THE GAZA BORDER FOR

WEEKS.

SCARY MORNING, INDEED.

PAT?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT YOU, FOLKS, BUT I

CAN'T UNDERSTAND THIS.

THIS IS SOMETHING ARIEL

SHARON SET UP.

HE SAID, WE'LL GIVE YOU

SOME INDEPENDENCE IN GAZA.

BUT THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY REALLY ISN'T IN

CHARGE OF THINGS.

HAMAS IS, AND HAMAS IS A

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO

ACCOMPLISH?

ARE THEY JUST PUTTING

THESE PEOPLE OUT AT CANNON

FIRES, AS FODDER?

BECAUSE THEY CAN'T

POSSIBLY BEAT ISRAEL.

THEY LAUNCHED 10 OR 15

MORTAR NOOSE ISRAELS INTO ISRAEL, WHICH

IS GOING TO PROVOKE AN

ATTACK COMING BACK THE

OTHER WAY.

SO A NUMBER OF GAZAN

RESIDENTS ARE GOING TO BE

KILLED.

WHY ARE THEY DOING IT?

WHAT IS IN THEIR MIND THAT

BRINGS ABOUT THIS KIND OF

NONSENSE?

AND SOONER OR LATER

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

BEHAVE THEMSELVES.

BUT I DON'T KNOW WHY

ISRAEL IS HOLDING OFF.

SOONER OR LATER, THEY

OUGHT TO GO IN THERE AND

SAY, GAZA IS NICE, TO HAVE

AN INDEPENDENT NATION, BUT

WE CANNOT ABIDE A

TERRORIST GROUP ON OUR

BORDER, THEREFORE WE'RE

CLOSING IT DOWN.

THEY SHOULD NEVER HAVE

TURNED IT LOOSE TO BEGIN

WITH.

EFREM?

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP CONFIRMS A

HIGH-RANKING OFFICIAL FROM

NORTH KOREA IS ON HIS WAY

TO THE U.S.

TWEETING THIS MORNING.

KIM YONG CHOL IS HEADED TO

NEW YORK.

IT IS THE LATEST

DEVELOPMENT IN THE LAST

SEVERAL DAYS, SIGNALLING

THE SINGAPORE SUMMIT MAY

BE BACK ON AFTER PRESIDENT

TRUMP CANCELLED IT LAST

WEEK.

SATURDAY KIM JONG-UN MET

WITH PRESIDENT MOON.

ALSO THAT SAME DAY, FROM

THE OVAL OFFICE, PRESIDENT

TRUMP SAID THEY'RE NOW

WORKING TOWARDS A

JUNE 12th SUMMIT.

PAT?

Pat: YOU KNOW, I'M

SURE THE PRESIDENT HAS

GOTTEN A LOT OF HEAT, LIKE

HE IS A MONKEY AND DOESN'T

KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING, BUT

THIS IS BRILLIANT.

THIS MOVE HAS BEEN

BRILLIANT.

INSTEAD OF HIM TRYING TO

SEEK OUT THE SUMMIT, HE

SAYS, I'M OUT OF HERE.

I DON'T WANT THIS.

YOU'RE GOING TO INSULT MY

VICE PRESIDENT, SAY

TERRIBLE THINGS AND MAKE

PROVOCATIVE STATEMENTS, IF

THAT'S THE WAY YOU WANT TO

PLAY IT, I'M GONE.

SUDDENLY THE KOREANS ARE

COMING BACK AND SAYING,

PLEASE, MR. PRESIDENT,

KEEP THE SUMMIT GOING.

WE ACTUALLY WANT IT.

PLEASE DO IT.

BRILLIANT.

EFREM?

Efrem: PAT, SECRETARY

OF STATE MIKE POMPEO IS

WORKING TO FREE AN

AMERICAN PASTOR IMPRISONED

IN TURKEY.

ANDREW BRUNSON HAS BEEN

JAILED FOR 19 MONTHS ON

FALSE CHARGES.

POMPEO WILL MEET WITH THE

TURKISH FOREIGN MINISTER

IN JUNE TO DISCUSS

BRUNSON'S RELEASE.

I'VE SPOKEN WITH THE

TURKISH FOREIGN MINISTER

AT LEAST ONCE, AND MAYBE

TWICE, AND I'VE TALKED

ABOUT THE INCREDIBLE NEED

FOR THEM TO RETURN PASTOR

BRUNSON.

IT IS DEEPLY WRONG,

IMMORAL, AND UNJUST.

NO SUCCESS SO FAR, BUT YOU

CAN BE AS ASSURED THAT WE'RE

WORKING DILIGENTLY ON

THAT.

Efrem: SECRETARY

POMPEO WILL ALSO SHARE THE

FINDINGS OF A NEW STATE

DEPARTMENT REPORT ON

GLOBAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

TODAY.

BE SURE TO STAY WITH CBN

NEWS FOR COVERAGE OF HIS

REMARKS.

AND YOU CAN TUNE INTO "THE

700 CLUB" WEDNESDAY FOR

OUR REPORT FROM

WASHINGTON.

> THE SECRETARY OF STATE

ALSO PLEDGED TO QUICKLY

FILL A STATE DEPARTMENT

POST, MONITORING

ANTI-SEMITISM AROUND THE

WORLD.

IN EUROPE, ANTI-SEMITISM

IS A STEADILY GROWING

PROBLEM.

AS DALE HURD REPORTS, IT

IS NOT ISOLATED TO ONE

COUNTRY.

IT HAS BEEN SWEEPING

ACROSS THE ENTIRE

CONTINENT.

Reporter: THIS PHONE

VIDEO FROM BERLIN, SHOWING

A MAN WEARING A JEWISH CAP

BEING ATTACKED IN THE

STREET WENT VIRAL,

CREATING A NATIONAL

CONTROVERSY IN GERMANY,

AND CAUSING CHANCELLOR

ANGELA MERKEL TO ADMIT

THAT THE LARGE NUMBER OF

ARAB REFUGEES HER

GOVERNMENT HAS BROUGHT

INTO GERMANY HAS BROUGHT

ANTI-SEMITISM WITH THEM.

THEY EVEN ADVISED GERMAN

JEWS TO STOP WEARING

JEWISH CAPS IN PUBLIC.

BUT ALL LEADERS CALLED FOR

ALL GERMANS TO WEAR

KEEPERS, AND IT RESULTED

IN THE LARGEST SUPPORT FOR

GERMAN JEWS SINCE THE

SECOND WORLD WAR.

PARTING YOURSELVES IS

NOT THE SOLUTION TO

ANTI-SEMITISM.

Reporter: FRANCE WAS

SHOCKED AFTER AN

85-YEAR-OLD HOLOCAUST

SURVIVOR WAS MURDERED IN

WHAT FRENCH POLICE CALLED

AN ANTI-SEMITIC HATE

CRIME.

SHE WAS STABBED 11 TIMES

BEFORE HER BODY WAS SET ON

FIRE.

300 FRENCH LEADERS ISSUED

A MA MANIFESTO DENOUNCING A

NEW ANTI-SEMITISM THAT IS

LEADING TO WHAT THEY

CALLED AN ETHNIC PURGE OF

JEWS FROM FRANCE.

EVEN IN BRITAIN, APPARENT

ANTI-SEMITISM BY MEMBERS

OF THE LABOUR PARTY HAS

BECOME A POLITICAL PARTY.

THE NEW ANTI-SEMITISM HAS

COME TO BELGIUM AS WELL.

AND IT IS THE SAME STORY:

PHYSICAL ATTACKS AND

CURSING OF JEWS IN THE

STREETS.

IN THIS SECURITY VIDEO

POSTED ON TWITTER, A MAN

IS SEEN RIPPING THE

RELIGIOUS SIGN OFF THE

DOOR OF AN ANTWERP

SYNAGOGUE AND THEN THROWS

IT ON THE GROUND.

THIS IS SO COMMON NOW IN

SOME PARTS OF EUROPE, WE

VISITED ONE SYNAGOGUE THAT

JUST TOOK IT DOWN.

ISRAEL'S PRESIDENT SAYS

ANTI-SEMITISM IS AGAIN IN

FULL SIGHT IN EUROPE.

THERE IS CONCERN IN

HUNGARY, THERE IS CONCERN

IN FRANCE.

THERE IS CONCERN OF A NEW

AND VERY UGLY WAVE OF

ANTI-SEMITISM SWEEPING

WESTERN EUROPE.

AND I THINK THAT WE WILL

SEE MORE JEWS COMING TO

ISRAEL.

Reporter: ALAN

HOFFMANN IS HEAD OF THE

JEWISH AGENCY WHICH HELPS

JEWS RETURN TO ISRAEL.

WE HEAR OF JEWISH

CHILDREN BEING TAUNTED IN

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

AND SO FAMILIES SAY, IF

THIS IS WHAT THE FUTURE IS

GOING TO LOOK LIKE, I

DON'T THINK THAT THIS IS

WHAT I'D LIKE TO SEE FOR

MY CHILDREN.

Reporter: IN POLAND,

THIS HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR

SAYS PEOPLE STILL WHISPER

THAT HITLER DID A LOT OF

BAD THINGS, BUT HE ALSO

FREED US FROM THE JEWS.

BUT JEWS SEEM DETERMINED

TO NOT MAKE THE SAME

MISTAKE AGAIN.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: HEARTBREAKING

REPORT.

PAT?

Pat: WHEN I WAS OVER

THERE SOME YEARS AGO, I

WAS ASTOUNDED, FRANKLY, AT

THE LEVEL OF

ANTI-SEMITISM, WHERE AT

BEST THEY HAD MAY 3,000

JEWS IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY,

BUT THERE WAS THIS

ANTI-SEMITISM, AND YOU

SAY, WHAT IS WRONG?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT IT IS.

IT IS A SPIRITUAL THING.

BECAUSE THE JEWS ARE

EVIDENCE OF GOD ALMIGHTY.

AND SOMEHOW THOSE WHO

DON'T SHARE THOSE

SPIRITUAL VALUES GO ON THE

OTHER SIDE AND THEY BECOME

ANTI-SEMITIC, ANTI-JEWISH.

AND, OF COURSE, WITH THE

INFLUX OF ARABS WHO

EUROPE, IT'S NO WONDER

THAT THIS IS NOW TAKING

SHAPE.

BUT WE'VE SEEN THE SAME

THING WITH THE UNITED

NATIONS.

THE RESOLUTIONS THEY KEEP

BRINGING OUT OF THAT

GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS JUST

SHOCKING.

ALL OF THIS STUFF THEY

HAVE COME UP WITH

INVARIABLY POINT TO

ISRAEL.

THEY BLAME THE JEWS FOR

EVERYTHING, AND EXCUSE THE

ARABS FOR EVERYTHING THEY

DO.

NO CONDEMNATION OF ARAB

EXTREMES, BUT ALWAYS A

CONDEMNATION OF ISRAEL.

WELL, IT'S THERE AND IT'S

TIME WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT

IT.

BUT WE'VE GOT TO SAY NEVER

AGAIN.

WE CANNOT ALLOW ANOTHER

HOLOCAUST.

BUT THE WORLD IS HEADING

IN THAT DIRECTION.

IT LOOKS LIKE THERE MAY BE

A SERIOUS ATTACK BY THE

NATIONS AGAINST ISRAEL.

IT'S GOING TO COME.

THE BIBLE FORECASTS IT.

EFREM.

PAT, A MAN WHO IS NOW

BEING CALLED A REAL LIFE

SPIDERMAN RESCUED A CHILD

FROM A BALCONY THIS

WEEKEND.

MAMOUDOU GASSAMA SCARED

FOUR STORIES OF THAT

APARTMENT BUILDING, AND

REACHED THE TODDLER IN

SECONDS, SAVING THE

CHILD'S LIFE.

HE IS AN IMMIGRANT WHO

ARRIVED FROM MALI JUST A

FEW MONTHS AGO, AND HE

SAYS THAT GOD HELPED HIM

TO SAY THAT BABY.

FOR HIS HEROIC ACTION, HE

HAS BEEN REWARDED

CITIZENSHIP AND A JOB WITH

THE PARIS FIRE BRIGADE.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP

PRAISED THE INDIANA

TEACHER WHO PUT HIMSELF

BETWEEN HIS STUDENTS AND A

GUNMAN.

JASON SEAMAN TOLD HIS SIDE

OF THE STORY FOR THE FIRST

TIME.

AMBER STRONG HAS MORE.

Reporter: NOT ALL

HEROS WEAR CAPS.

MY ACTIONS ON THAT DAY,

IN MY MIND, WERE THE ONLY

ACCEPTABLE ACTIONS.

Reporter: JASON

SEAMAN IS BEING DUBBED A

HERO FOR WHAT MANY ARE

CALLING SELFLESS ACTIONS

AND QUICK THINKING.

THE 39-YEAR-OLD CONFRONTED

A STUDENT ARMED WITH TWO

HANDGUNS AT AN INDIANA

MIDDLE SCHOOL ON FRIDAY.

ACCORDING TO STUDENTS, THE

TEACHER AND FOOTBALL COACH

THREW A BASKETBALL AT THE

GUNMAN'S HEAD AND CHARGED.

I DEEPLY CARE FOR MY

STUDENTS AND THEIR

WELL-BEING.

SO THAT IS WHY I DID WHAT

I DID THAT DAY.

Reporter: SEAMAN WAS

SHOT THREE TIMES, BUT JUST

A FEW DAYS LATER, HE'S OUT

OF THE HOSPITAL, ON THE

ROAD TO RECOVERY AND BEING

SHOWERED WITH PRAISE FROM

HIS STUDENTS.

HE LITERALLY RISKED HIS

LIFE FOR US.

THAT WAS REALLY HEROIC OF

HIM.

Reporter: FRIENDS AND

STUDENTS SAY SEAMAN'S

ACTIONS AREN'T REALLY A

SURPRISE.

TAKING TO TWITTER, ONE

STUDENT SAID: NUMBE MR. SEAMAN

ALWAYS TOLD US HE WOULD

TAKE A BILLIO BULLET FOR ANY ONE

OF HIS STUDENTS."

A STUDENT WAS ALSO SHOT,

AND SHE WAS LISTED IN

CRITICAL BUT STABLE

CONDITION.

SOME STUDENTS TOOK TO

PRAYER.

WE ALL GOT TOGETHER AND

HAD A HUGE PRAYER CIRCLE.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

THIRD TIME IN RECENT WEEKS

A CIVILIAN HAS TAKEN DOWN

A SHOOTER.

LIKE SEAMAN, JAMES SHOAL,

JR. WAS ALSO DISARMED WHEN

HE DISARMED A GUNMAN AT A

WAFFLE HOUSE.

AND TWO BY-STANDERS SHOT

AND KILLED A SHOOTER LAST

THURSDAY AT A RESTAURANT

IN OKLAHOMA.

> AMBER STRONG, CBN

NEWS.

Efrem: THANK GOD FOR

THAT BRAVE TEACHER.

PAT?

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU,

THE PRESIDENT SUGGESTED

ARMING TEACHERS AND

EVERYBODY WAS HOR RIDE, HORRIFIED,

BUT WHAT HE SAID WAS

EXACTLY TRUE.

IF THESE TEENAGED GUNMAN

THINK THEY'RE GOING TO BE

MET WITH DEADLY FORCE,

THEY WILL THINK BEFORE

THEY GO INTO A SCHOOL AND

START PULLING A TRIGGER.

IF A TEACHER IS ARMED, OR

SOMEBODY IS ARMED THAT

COULD SHOOT BACK -- I KNOW

THIS IS A TERRIBLE THING

TO TALK ABOUT, BUT WE'VE

GOT TO DEFEND OURSELVES.

IF THESE STUDENTS ARE

HELPLESS AND THEY FEEL

HELPLESS -- YOU DON'T WANT

THE STUDENTS HAVING GUNS.

THAT WOULD BE HORRIBLE.

THEY WOULD SHOOT EACH

OTHER.

BUT TO HAVE RESPONSIBLE

TEACHERS WITH GUN

TRAINING, WEAPONS

TRAINING, TEACHING THEM

HOW TO HANDLE THEM, HOW TO

FIRE THEM, HOW TO PRESERVE

THEM, HOW TO KEEP THEM OUT

OF TROUBLE -- TO HAVE

SOMEBODY LIKE THAT IN A

SCHOOL, OR SEVERAL PEOPLE

LIKE THAT, IT WOULD DETER

MUCH OF THIS SCHOOL

VIOLENCE.

I KNOW THIS IS ONLY ONE OF

THE THINGS THAT COULD BE

DONE.

THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER

THINGS THAT NEED TO BE

DONE.

ESPECIALLY TO LOOK AT THE

MENTAL HEALTH OF STUDENTS.

BUT WE CANNOT ALLOW OUR

CHILDREN TO BE SLAUGHTERED

LIKE SHEEP BY SOME CRAZY

GUNMAN.

WE CAN'T ALLOW IT TO

HAPPEN ANYMORE.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, COMING

UP, NASA IS ON A MISSION

TO TOUCH THE SUN.

THE MORE I STUDIED THE

ATMOSPHERE, NEAR THE SUN

ENVIRONMENT, THE MORE I

FIND THE GLORIES OF GOD,

THAT HE DESIGNED IT FOR

US.

Terry: FIND OUT WHEN

THIS SOLAR PROBE LIFTS

OFF, AND WHY ITS MISSION

IS SO IMPORTANT TO

EVERYONE ON EARTH.

Pat: NASA, THE

NATIONAHAS BEENSO IMPORTANT TO ALL OF US

HERE ON EARTH.

NOW IT IS ON A MISSION TO

TOUCH THE SUN.

THE FINISHING TOUCHES ARE

BEING PUT ON THE UNMANNED

PARKER SOLAR PROBE BEFORE

IT IS SLATED TO GO UP NEXT

YEAR.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIK ROSALES

SHOWS US WHY THE MISSION

IS SO IMPORTANT TO ALL OF

US WHO LIVE ON EARTH.

Reporter: INSIDE ONE

OF THE CLEAN ROOMS HERE AT

THE GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT

CENTER SITS THE PARKER

SOLAR PROBE.

IT IS NAMED FAMOUSLY FOR

ASTROPHYSICIST EUGENE

PARKER WILL GO CLOSER TO

THE SUN THAN ANY MANMADE

PROJECT PUT IN SPACE.

THE MORE I STUDIED THE

SUN, WHERE NO HUMAN BEING

LIVES -- AND I DON'T THINK

ANYBODY IS PLANNING TO --

THE MORE I FIND THE

GLORIES OF GOD, THAT HE

DESIGNED IT FOR US.

Reporter: FOR MORE

THAN A DECADE, THIS

SCIENTIST HAS BEEN WORKING

ON THE PARKER SOLAR PROBE.

HE SAYS OUR EXISTENCE HERE

ON EARTH COULDN'T HAPPEN

WITHOUT A DIVINE CREATOR.

I LOOK AT HOW MUCH

ENERGY THERE IS IN THE

SUN.

ALL OF THAT ENERGY IS

COMING TOWARDS US, AND YET

THAT ENERGY IS EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS IF WE WERE JUST

EXPOSED TO IT.

LOOK AT THIS SPACECRAFT.

JUST TO FLY BY THERE, WE

HAD TO TAKE EXTREME

PROTECTIVE MEASURES JUST

FOR ROBOTIC STUFF TO

SURVIVE, NEVER MIND HUMAN

BEINGS.

Reporter: SCIENTISTS

SAY THE PROBE, ABOUT THE

SIZE OF A SMALL CAR, IS

EQUIPPED WITH A 4.5-INCH

THICK CARBON HEAT SHIELD.

IT WILL ALLOW THE CRAFT TO

SURVIVE TEMPERATURES OF

25,000 DEGREES.

AND IT TRAVELS AS SPEEDS

AT 500,000 MILES PER HOUR,

AND MAKE IT ABLE TO ENDURE

POWERFUL RADIATION AS IT

CIRCLES THE SUN.

IT HAS TO FACE THE SUN

ALL THE TIME.

WE CANNOT AFFORD LARGE

EXCURSIONS.

Reporter: JUST IN

DEGREES, IT WILL CAUSE

PROBLEMS.

YES.

AND WE DON'T WANT THAT.

Reporter: DATA SENT

BACK TO EARTH WILL HELP

SCIENTISTS FIGURE OUT WHY

THE SUN'S ATMOSPHERE, THE

CORONA, IS HIGHER.

WHEN YOU GET OUT INTO

THE ATMOSPHERE, IT IS 2 TO

3 MILLION DEGREES.

Reporter: ONCE THE

PROBE IS LAUNCHED FROM

EARTH, IT WILL FLY AROUND

VENUS SEVEN TIMES IN ORDER

TO SLOW DOWN.

IT IS EXPECTED TO ORBIT

THE SUN 24 TIMES OVER THE

NEXT SEVEN YEARS, EDGING

CLOSER ON EACH PATH.

SIX ON BOARD INSTRUMENTS

WILL MEASURE THE SUN'S

MAGNETIC FIELDS, AND THE

SOLAR WINDS AND OTHER

PHENOMENA.

SPACE WEATHER MAY NOT

SOUND LIKE SOMETHING THAT

CONCERNS US HERE ON EARTH,

BUT SCIENTISTS ESTIMATE

THAT SOLAR EVENTS THAT

HAPPEN WITHOUT WARNING

COULD COST TRILLIONS OF

DOLLARS IN THE U.S.

AND IT IS COULD LEAVE

PARTS OF THE COUNTRY

WITHOUT POWER FOR A YEAR

OR MORE.

THE CORONA CAN THROW

OFF THINGS THAT CAN HARM

US.

IMAGINE ONE OF THE FLARES,

AND IT IS HURTLING BACK TO

EARTH, AND IT CAN CAUSE A

LOT OF DAMAGE.

YES, WE HAVE A WHOLE

BUNCH OF EXPECTATIONS.

THESE ARE THE MEASUREMENTS

WE WILL DO.

AND THEN WE GO THERE, AND

WITH INVARIABLY FIND THAT,

OOH, THIS IS COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT.

SO I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO

THE UNEXPECTED DISFERSZ DISCOVERIES

THAT I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE.

Reporter: IT WILL

BLAST OFF FROM CAPE

CANAVERAL, FLORIDA.

SCIENTISTS SAY THE HARDEST

THING WILL BE TO SAY

GOOD-BYE TO IT FOREVER.

ERIK ROSALES, CBN NEWS.

Pat: YOU KNOW, TERRY,

THAT WHOLE THING, THAT

CORONA MASS EJECTION

THING, HAS BEEN SOMETHING

I'VE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT,

AND MANY OTHERS, BECAUSE

IF ONE OF THOSE SOLAR

FLARES COMES OUT AND HITS

THE EARTH, IF IT IS

POINTED TOWARDS US AND

GOES OUT, IT WILL FRY THE

ELECTRICAL GRID ALL OVER

THIS NATION.

AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

IS ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL IS

THAT WE HARDEN THAT

ELECTRICAL GRID SO IT WILL

BE IMPERVIOUS THAT THIS

KIND OF A THRUST.

AND IT HAS GOT TO BE DONE.

BUT WE'RE NOT DOING IT.

WE'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT

IT, BUT IT'S NOT BEING

DONE.

IT WOULDN'T COST THAT MUCH

MONEY, A FEW BILLION

DOLLARS, FOR ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY TO HARDEN THESE

THINGS.

Terry: I THINK THERE

IS SO MUCH THAT IS

IMMINENT THAT IS BEING

WORKED ON AND DONE.

Pat: THIS S IS A WHOLE

LOT MORE IMMINENT THAT

NORTH KOREA, IF IT COMES.

IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE

WITHOUT POWER.

Terry: YOU DON'T EVEN

REALIZE WHAT THAT MEANS.

Pat: YOU COULDN'T

HAVE A REFRIGERATOR, AND

YOUR CAR WOULDN'T START.

AND IT GOES ON DOWN THE

LINE.

WE WOULD BE DYING AS A

CIVILIZATION, WITH A FEW

MONTHS OF SOMETHING LIKE

THIS.

IT IS VERY SERIOUS.

> WELL, THIS IS NOT THE

FAMILY HORROR SHOW.

WE JUST WANT TO POINT OUT

SOME OF THE DANGERS.

Terry: BUT IT IS

FASCINATING.

IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO

SEE WHAT NEW INFORMATION

THEY GATHER FROM THAT.

> WELL, UP NEXT, A MAN

DISCOVERS HIS WIFE IS

USING COCAINE.

I WOULD DO WHATEVER IT

TAKES TO KEEP THE MARRIAGE

TOGETHER.

LISTEN, IF YOU'RE GOING TO

GET HIGH, GET HIGH AT

HOME.

Terry: SEE HOW HE

FOLLOWED HIS WIFE INTO A

LIFE OF ADDICTION, LOST

HIS JOB, HIS RETIREMENT,

AND HIS HOME, AFTER THIS.

Pat: I GUESS THE

TITLE OF THIS NEXT STORY

IS, DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR

WIFE.

ANYHOW.

SONNY SIKES HAD A GOOD

JOB, RETIREMENT BENEFITS,

HE HAD A COMFORTABLE HOME.

AND HE ALSO LOVED HIS WIFE

DEARLY.

SO WHEN HE FOUND OUT SHE

WAS USING DRUGS ON THE

OUTSIDE, HE SAID, DEAR,

WHY DON'T YOU COME HOME

AND GET HIGH.

WELL, UNFORTUNATELY, THAT

WAS HIS DOWNFALL.

BECAUSE SOON SONNY WAS

ADDICTED HIMSELF, AND

EVENTUALLY HE LOST

EVERYTHING, INCLUDING HIS

DEAR WIFE.

Reporter: 62-YEAR-OLD

ALBERT SONNY SIKES IS IN

THE BEST SHAPE OF HIS

LIFE.

AT FIRST GLANCE, YOU WOULD

NEVER GUESS THAT AT ONE

TIME HE WAS A DRUG ADDICT

ON THE VERGE OF

SELF-DESTRUCTION.

LIFE IS GOING WELL.

I WAS WORKING TO BECOME A

PHYSICAL SCIENCE

TECHNICIAN.

Reporter: SONNY WAS

HAPPILY MARRIED WITH TWO

SONS.

BUT THINGS CHANGED WHEN HE

FOUND HIS WIFE WAS USING

COCAINE.

THAT CHANGES

EVERYTHING.

NOW IT EXPLAINS A LOT OF

THINGS.

IT BECAME MORE FREQUENT,

LONGER DAYS, LONGER TIME

PERIODS.

Reporter: WHEN SONNY

CONFRONTED HER, SHE

REFUSED TO QUIT.

STILL, HE WANTED TO SAVE

THE MARRIAGE.

I WOULD DO WHATEVER IT

TAKES TO KEEP THE MARRIAGE

TOGETHER.

I SAID, LISTEN, IF YOU'RE

GOING TO GET HIGH, GET

HIGH AT HOME.

Reporter: BEFORE

LONG, SONNY BEGAN USING

COCAINE WITH HIS WIFE.

I FELT TOTAL EUPHORIA.

Reporter: SO SONNY WAS

HOOKED.

HE SPENT EVERY DAY TRYING

TO GET HIGH.

HE EVENTUALLY QUIT HIS JOB

AND CASHED OUT HIS

RETIREMENT TO PAY FOR HIS

ADDICTION.

AND WHEN THE MONEY RAN

OUT, HIS WIFE MADE OTHER

ARRANGEMENTS.

SHE DID WHATEVER IT

TOOK.

SHE STARTED HAVING SEX FOR

DRUGS.

THAT WAS DEVASTATING.

Reporter: THEN SHE

LEFT HIM AND THEIR

CHILDREN FOR ANOTHER MAN.

IT IS THE WORST FEELING

IN MY LIFE.

AT THIS POINT, IT IS A

HOPELESS SITUATION.

I THOUGHT ABOUT COMMITTING

SUICIDE.

Reporter: SONNY

EVENTUALLY LOST HIS HOUSE

AND WAS TOO ASHAMED TO

MOVE BACK IN WITH HIS

PARENTS.

SO HE MOVED IN WITH HIS

IN-LAWS.

ME AND THE BOYS MOVED

IN WITH THEM, AND I'M

FEELING LIKE VERY MUCH

LESS THAN A MAN.

BECAUSE MY DAD DIDN'T

RAISE ME LIKE THAT.

MY DAD WAS DISAPPOINTED IN

ME, MY MOTHER WAS

DISAPPOINTED IN ME, MY

FAMILY IS DISAPPOINTED IN

ME.

I LOST MY WIFE.

PRETTY DEPRESSED.

Reporter: WHILE HE

WAS THERE, SONNY'S

MOTHER-IN-LAW STARTED

TELLING HIM ABOUT GOD AND

SUGGESTED HE READ THE BOOK

OF JOB.

THEY KEPT ME FROM

KILLING MYSELF, YOU KNOW

WHAT I'M SAYING.

SO I STARTED READING JOB.

AND I UNDERSTOOD ALL THAT

GOD ALLOWED THE DEVIL TO

TAKE FROM ME.

AND HOW HE GAVE EVERYTHING

BACK TWO-FOLD.

THAT'S WHAT I WANTED.

I WANTED TO BE RESTORED.

I WANT A NEW FAMILY.

I WANT MY FAMILY BACK.

Reporter: BUT SONNY

DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO SHAKE

HIS ADDICTION ON HIS OWN.

I WAS STRUGGLING

BETWEEN TRYING TO FIND GOD

AND STILL GETTING HIGH.

I CREATED OPPORTUNITIES

THAT, I GUESS, NUMBED

MYSELF.

Reporter: SONNY'S

WAKEUP CALL CAME ONE NIGHT

WHILE HE WAS TRYING TO

SCORE SOME COCAINE.

HE GOT CAUGHT IN A GUN

FIGHT BETWEEN TWO GANGS.

PEOPLE WERE FIGHTING

FOR TERRITORY, THAT HAS

NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU.

YOU'RE JUST OUT THERE IN

THE WRONG PLACE AT THE

WRONG TIME.

I HAD TO GET UP OUT OF

THERE BECAUSE I THOUGHT I

WAS GOING TO DIE OUT

THERE.

Reporter: SOON AFTER,

SONNY CHECKED HIMSELF INTO

REHAB.

THERE IN HIS ROOM, HE

BEGAN PRAYING.

IF JESUS HAD TO REACH

WAY DOWN, JESUS WILL PICK

YOU UP.

WHERE I WAS WAS SO LOW

DOWN.

AND I JUST PRAYED TO GOD.

I PRAYED TO HIM FOR HELP.

I PRAYED TO HIM FOR

HEART-FELT HELP.

AND A SINCERE, I NEED YOU.

Reporter: SONNY

ACCEPTED JESUS INTO HIS

HEART, AND HE BEGAN

STUDYING THE BIBLE AND

GOING TO CHURCH, BELIEVING

FOR A BETTER LIFE THROUGH

JESUS CHRIST.

I STAYED AWAY FROM

THINGS THAT TRIGGERED

THOUGHTS OF SEX, THOUGHTS

OF DRUGS, ANYTHING.

I STAYED AWAY FROM IT.

SO I WAS SEEKING AFTER HIM

WITH MY WHOLE HEART.

Reporter: SONNY'S

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

CONTINUED TO GROW.

AND AFTER 14 WEEKS, HE WAS

RELEASED FROM REHAB FREE

AND CLEAN FROM COCAINE.

HE CLEANSED MY HEART

AND STRENTHENED IT.

WHEN I THINK OF THE WORD

HEART, I THINK OF THE WORD

"LEB" WHICH MEANS HEART

AND MIND.

WHERE I WAS HOPELESS, NOW

I'M FULL OF HOPE.

HE JUST GAVE ME EVERYTHING

BACK.

HE GAVE ME MY FAMILY BACK.

HE GAVE ME A NEW WIFE.

HE GAVE ME MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH MY EX-WIFE BACK.

Reporter: THROUGH

GOD'S GRACE, SONNY BEGAN

PIECING HIS LIFE BACK

TOGETHER.

THAT WAS OVER 20 YEARS

AGO.

TODAY HE IS HAPPIER THAN

EVER.

HE SERVES AS A FITNESS

PROFESSIONAL AND IS NOW

MARRIED TO STEPHANIE.

SHE ENCOURAGES ME TO

SUCCEED.

SHE ENCOURAGES ME TO KEEP

MOVING, MAN.

SHE LIFTS MY HEART UP.

Reporter: SONNY NOW

KNOWS THAT TRUE HAPPINESS

CAN ONLY BE FOUND THROUGH

A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

CHRIST.

IF HE HAD TO REACH WAY

DOWN, HE'LL PICK YOU UP.

HE'LL MEET YOU WHERE YOU

ARE.

HE IS THE LIVING HOPE.

HE IS THE ONLY HOPE.

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY

WAY.

THAT'S IT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

BIBLE TELLS US ABOUT A MAN

NAMED JOB, WHO WAS

OUTSTANDING IN HIS

MORALITY AND HIS

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

AND THE DEVIL PUT HIS HAND

OUT.

AND HE SAID TO GOD, NOW

LOOK AT JOB.

YOU PUT A HEDGE AROUND

HIM.

YOU LET ME TOUCH HIM, AND

HE'LL CURSE YOU.

AND GOD SAID, OKAY, JOB,

JUST DON'T TAKE HIS LIFE.

YOU CAN DO THE REST.

AND THE DEVIL TOOK HIS

FAMILY, HE TOOK HIS MONEY,

HE TOOK HIS HEALTH, AND HE

WAS -- YOU KNOW, HE SAID,

PEOPLE MAKE FUN OF ME, AND

THESE PEOPLE ARE MOCKING

ME.

IT WAS HUMILIATING WHAT

HAPPENED TO HIM.

HE WAS MISERABLE.

AND HIS WIFE BASICALLY

SAID, CURSE GOD AND DIE.

BUT JOB SAID, NO, NO.

HE SLAY ME, YET SHALL I

TRUST HIM.

YOU MAY HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING.

SONNY HAD LOST EVERYTHING.

LOST HIS JOB, LOST HIS

MONEY, LOST HIS

SELF-RESPECT -- HE LOST

EVERYTHING.

BUT GOD ALMIGHTY CAME DOWN

AND DID FOR HIM WHAT HE

DID FOR JOB.

THE BIBLE SAYS GOD GAVE

HIM BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS,

AND HE DOUBLED THE AMOUNT

OF MONEY HE HAD,

EVERYTHING WAS DOUBLED AND

HE GAVE IT ALL BACK AND

RESTORED HIM.

GOD IS A GOD OF

RESTORATION.

HE WILL RESTORE TO YOU

WHAT THE ENEMY HAS TAKEN

AWAY.

HE SAYS, LOOK AT ME AND

TRUST ME, AND I WILL DO

WONDERFUL THINGS FOR YOU.

SO RIGHT NOW, BEFORE WE GO

ANYWHERE ELSE, WOULD YOU

LIKE THAT?

WOULD YOU LIKE

RESTORATION?

IF YOU WOULD, I WANT YOU

TO PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

WHOEVER YOU ARE, WHATEVER

HAS HAPPENED IN YOUR LIFE,

STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING

RIGHT NOW, BOW YOUR HEAD,

AND PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- PRAY WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW WHAT THE

DEVIL HAS TAKEN FROM ME.

AND, LORD, I HAVE BEEN

TEMPTED TO COMMIT SUICIDE,

I'VE BEEN TEMPTED TO CURSE

YOU, I'VE BEEN TEMPTED TO

BLAME EVERYBODY ACCEP EXCEPT ME,

AND I BLAME MYSELF.

BUT JESUS, RIGHT NOW, AS

THIS MOMENT, I WILL TRUST

YOU.

AND I ASK YOU TO COME INTO

MY LIFE AND LIVE YOUR LIFE

IN ME.

TAKE OVER THE

RESPONSIBILITY.

I GIVE IT TO YOU, LORD.

AND I ASK THAT YOU WILL

RESTORE UNTO ME THAT WHICH

THE ENEMY HAS TAKEN AWAY.

I RECEIVE THIS BLESSING,

LORD.

AND I THANK YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

THANK YOU.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

> NOW, IF YOU PRAYED

THAT PRAYER WITH ME,

WONDERFUL THINGS ARE GOING

TO HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE.

I PROMISE YOU, WONDERFUL

THINGS ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN.

I WANT YOU TO BELIEVE GOD

FOR A MIRACLE.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING, BY THE WAY.

I HAVE A LITTLE PACKET IN

HERE.

IN HERE IS A COMPACT DISC.

70 SOME MINUTES ABOUT

INTENSE TEACHING ABOUT

WHAT YOU'VE JUST DONE AND

HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE.

THIS LITTLE BOOK HAS THE

SCRIPTURES THAT THAT COMES

FROM.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE.

BUT I WANT YOU TO CALL IN

RIGHT NOW AND SAY, LOOK, I

PRAYED WITH PAT.

I'M GOING TO HAVE A NEW

LIFE, AND I WANT TO

CONFESS IT.

OUR TELEPHONE NUMBER IS

EASY TO REMEMBER, 700-

700-7000.

IF YOU'RE LONG DISTANCE,

IT IS 1-800-700-7000.

CALL IN NOW AND SAY, I

JUST PRAYED WITH PAT, AND

I'M REJOICING THAT A NEW

LIFE IS AHEAD OF ME.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, YOUR QUESTIONS AND

HONEST ANSWERS.

AMBER SAYS, "A DEAR FRIEND

OF MINE WITH LIVER CANCER

WAS TOLD HE HAS EIGHT

MONTHS TO A YEAR TO LIVE.

DOCTORS INFORMED HIM OF

THE DEATH BY DIGNITY

PROCESS.

WHAT IS THAT?"

STAY TUNED FOR PAT'S

ANSWER.

IT'S ALL COMING UP AFTER

THIS.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

STARBUCKS IS CLOSING MORE

THAN 8,000 STORES

NATIONWIDE THIS AFTERNOON

TO CONDUCT ANTI-BIAS

TRAINING.

THE TRAINING FOLLOWS THE

ARREST OF TWO BLACK MEN IN

PHILADELPHIA LAST MONTH AT

ONE OF ITS SHOPS.

THE MEN WERE ARRESTED

FORTRESS PASSING AFTER

SITTING AT A TABLE WITHOUT

STARBUCKS OFFICIALS

REACHED OUT TO PUT

TOGETHER A CURRICULUM FOR

ITS EMPLOYEES.

THE FLAG GARDENS BEGAN 10

YEARS AGO.

EACH ONE REPRESENTS A

SOLDIER WHO HAS DIED IN

THAT STATE SINCE THE

REVOLUTIONARY WAR.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MUCH MORE OF TODAY'S

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: WELL, IT IS

TIME FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

AND SOME HONEST ANSWERS.

AND, PAT, THIS FIRST

QUESTION COMES FROM AMBER,

WHO SAYS, "A DEAR FRIEND

OF MINE RECENTLY FOUND OUT

HE HAS STAGE FOUR LIVER

CANCER.

DOCTORS SAY HE HAS EIGHT

MONTHS TO A YEAR LEFT TO

LIVE.

HE WAS INFORMED OF THE

DEATH BY DIGNITY PROCESS

IF HE CHOOSES.

WHAT IS THAT?"

Pat: WELL, I'M NOT

EXACTLY FAMILIAR WITH THAT

TERM.

I DO KNOW WHAT THE HOSPICE

MOVEMENT IS.

THERE COMES A TIME WHEN

YOU RECOGNIZE THAT

SOMEBODY IS GOING TO DIE.

SO YOU DON'T OFFER -- LIKE

BARBARA BUSH -- SHE SAID,

I DON'T WANT HEROIC

MEASURES TO KEEP ME ALIVE.

WHAT THEY DO IS ALL KINDS

OF OPERATIONS, ALL KINDS

OF EXPENSIVE TREATMENTS

GIVEN TO SOMEBODY, AND ALL

THEY ARE IS JUST A CORPS CORPSE

LYING THERE WITH ALL OF

THIS BAGGAGE AND THESE

TUBES GOING OUT OF THEIR

BODY.

I THINK THE IDEA IS YOU

LEAVE THEM AS NORMAL HUMAN

BEINGS, GIVE THEM SOME

PALLIATIVE MEDICINE TO

TAKE AWAY THE PAIN, AND

LET THEM PASS OFF FROM

THIS LIFE NATURALLY, WITH

THEIR LOVED ONES AROUND

THEM AND EVERYBODY

PRAYING.

Terry: THIS IS TARA

WHO SAYS, "I WAS DIVORCED

IN MY 20s BEFORE I GOT

SAVED.

I HAVE TWO CHILDREN.

I'VE ASKED FOR FORGIVENESS

FOR MY SIN OF DIVORCE, AND

MY EX HAS REMARRIED.

AM I ALLOWED BIBLICALLY TO

BE REMARRIED.

I'M DATELY SOMEON DATING SOMEONE FROM MY

CHURCH, AND WHAT I'M

HEARING IS NO TO MARRIAGE.

I DON'T KNOW IF GOD IS

SAYING NO TO THE GOT OR,

NO, NOT EVER."

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

WHAT GOD IS SPECIFICALLY

SAYING TO YOU.

IN A SITUATION WHERE YOUR

SPOUSE HAS LEFT YOU -- I

DON'T KNOW IF YOU DIVORCED

HIM OR HE DIVORCED YOU --

I THINK IN A THING LIKE

THAT, GOD SAYS LET NO MAN

PUT ASUNDER, BUT THEY'VE

ALREADY BEEN PUT ASUNDER.

JESUS GAVE A GROUNDS FOR

REMARRIAGE, UNDER THE CASE

OF ADULTERY.

YOUR SPOUSE HAS NOW

MARRIED SOMEBODY ELSE.

IF YOU'RE ASKING ME, I

WOULD SAY GOD HAS GIVEN

YOU PERMISSION TO HAVE A

LIFE AND TO GET REMARRIED.

BUT IF HE IS TELLING YOU

NO, IT MAY BE THAT IT IS

THE WRONG PERSON.

I DON'T KNOW YOUR

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

LORD.

I HAVE NO -- I CAN'T

COMMENT ON THAT BEYOND

WHAT I'M TELLING YOU.

Terry: OKAY.

THIS IS A VIEWER WHO SAYS,

"HI, PAT.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME

YOUR THOUGHTS ON JESUS'

PARABLE ON THE PEARL OF

GREAT PRICE.

IN YOUR OPINION, DOES THE

PEARL REPRESENT JESUS

CHRIST OR THE REDEEMED

SINNER BOUGHT BY HIS

BLOOD.

I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS

THE LATTER, BUT SOME

PEOPLE ARE REALLY OFFENDED

BY THAT.

PLEASE HELP."

Pat: IF YOU INTERPRET

THE SCRIPTURES A DIFFERENT

WAY, THEY SHOULDN'T BE

OFFENDED.

A MAN BOUGHT A PEARL, AND

HE BOUGHT THE FIELD AND HE

TOOK THE PEARL.

I THINK THE PEARL OF GREAT

PRICE HAS TO DO WITH

SALVATION, AND IT HAS TO

DO WITH JESUS.

HE IS THE PEARL.

I THINK, YOU KNOW, THAT'S

WHAT THEY'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

HE IS PRECIOUS.

OF COURSE THOSE WHO FIND

THE LORD ARE PRECIOUS, BUT

I DON'T THINK THAT PARABLE

MEANS THE PEOPLE.

BUT, HEY, YOU KNOW, WE CAN

ALL INTERPRET THE BIBLE

DIFFERENTLY.

Terry: SHEILA SAYS,

"DEAR, PAT, WHEN I SPEAK

THE NAME OF JESUS, I FEEL

A WARM, TINGLING FEELING

ALL OVER.

IS THIS THE HOLY SPIRIT

LETTING ME KNOW THAT JESUS

IS THERE FOR ME.

MY LIFE IS IN A TURMOIL.

MY HEALTH IS NOT GOOD, MY

FAMILY IS FALLING APART,

AND I'M THE ONLY ONE

BELIEVING THAT GOD IS REAL

AND WILL HELP US."

Pat: I THINK WHAT GOD

IS TRYING TO SHOW UH-HUH

IYOU ISHE IS THE ANSWER.

IN THE LORD THERE IS

POWER.

THERE IS GRACE.

AND HIS NAME IS A HIGH

TOWER.

YOU READ THE BIBLE, THE

NAME OF THE LORD IS A HIGH

TOWER.

AND THOSE WILL RUN TO IT

AND ARE SAFE.

NOW, THE NAME OF THE

LORD -- JESUS IS JEHOVAH

SAVIOR, YAHWEH SAVIOR.

YOU'RE SPEAKING THE NAME

OF THAT WHICH IS THE

REFUGE FOR YOUR LIFE.

Terry: GAIL SAYS,

"HOW WILL I KNOW THAT MY

BROTHER HAS BEEN SAVED.

HOW CAN I HELP HIM?

HE HAS STAGE FOUR CANCER."

Pat: I THINK THE WAY

YOU CAN KNOW IS TO ASK

HIM.

HAVE YOU RECEIVED JESUS AS

YOUR SAVIOR?

MY BROTHER WAS DYING OF

CANCER.

I TALKED TO HIM A LONG

TIME ABOUT GETTING HEALED.

AND THEN IT WAS OBVIOUS

THAT THE HEALING WASN'T

GOING TO TAKE PLACE.

I SAID, NOW IT IS ABOUT

TIME TO START TALKING

ABOUT HEAVEN.

SO I STARTED TELLING HIM

ABOUT HEAVEN, HOW

WONDERFUL HEAVEN WAS.

AND I SAID, WOULD YOU LIKE

TO PRAY WITH ME AND GIVE

YOUR LIFE TO JESUS.

AND HE SAID YES.

AND HE AND THE LADY HE WAS

SEEING, HIS GIRLFRIEND,

THEY BOTH FOUND THE LORD.

Terry: WOW!

DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK.

Pat: DON'T BE AFRAID

TO ASK.

HOW WILL YOU KNOW?

YOU KNOW BY ASKING.

Terry: WELL, THAT'S

ALL OF THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR QUESTIONS TODAY.

BU THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

YOUR QUESTIONS.

> WELL, CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK" IS CHANGING

THE LIVES OF CHILDREN ALL

AROUND THE WORLD AND THEIR

FAMILIES.

CHILDREN LIKE THIS YOUNG

BUDDHIST BOY IN CAMBODIA,

WHICH WAS ENCOURAGED TO

LEARN SAND SCRIPT SO HE

COULD BECOME A MONK.

BUT HE HAD A LOT OF

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS UNTIL

HE WATCHED AN EPISODE OF

"SUPERBOOK."

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: ONE SUNDAY

MORNING, HUNG LI HEARD

SOME KIDS AND A NEARBY

BUILDING.

THEN THE TEACHER WAVED FOR

HIM TO JOIN THEM.

I'VE KNOWN THE TEACHER

ALL MY LIFE, SO I DECIDED

TO GO IN.

THAT'S THE FIRST TIME I

SAW "SUPERBOOK."

Reporter: HUNG LI

GREW UP IN A TRADITIONAL

BUDDHIST FAMILY IN

CAMBODIA.

MY GRANDPA TAUGHT ME TO

LEARN SAND SCRIPT.

HE SAID, LEARN IT, AND I

WILL MAKE YOU INTO A MONK.

I SAID, I'M NOT SURE I

WANT TO BE A MONK.

Reporter: BUT HE DID

HAVE SOME UNANSWERED

QUESTIONS THAT MORNING AS

HE WALKED INTO THE CHURCH.

QUESTIONS LIKE: WHO MADE

THE WORLD?

THEY WERE SHOWING THE

"SUPERBOOK" EPISODE, "IN

THE BEGINNING."

AND HE SAID, LIGHTS ON,

AND HE LIT THE SKY AND THE

WHOLE WORLD.

HE EVEN MADE ADAM FROM THE

DUST OF THE EARTH.

Reporter: THE TEACHER

INVITED EVERYONE TO PRAY

THAT MORNING, AND HUNG LI,

AFTER WATCHING ONLY ONE

EPISODE OF "SUPERBOOK,"

GAVE HIS LIFE TO JESUS.

AFTER I BELIEVE IN

JESUS, I WAS SO HAPPY

BECAUSE I KNEW HE IS THE

WORLD MAKER.

Reporter: THE

FOLLOWING WEEKEND, HE

TALKED TO HIS PARENTS AND

INVITED THEM TO GO TO

CHURCH.

THEN JUST THREE WEEKS

LATER, HIS WHOLE FAMILY

PRAYED TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS.

MY MOM AND DAD BELIEVE

IN JESUS NOW, AND THEY GO

TO CHURCH EVERY WEEK.

I'M SO GRATEFUL FOR

"SUPERBOOK."

Terry: HUNG LI'S

STORY IS JUST ONE.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB."

I'M HERE WITH A LOVELY

LADY, MISS TERRY --

Terry: TODAY I'M

TERRY MEEUWSEN, WHO KNOWS

TOMORROW.

Pat: FORMER

MS. AMERICA, TERRY

MEEUWSEN.

> JENNIFER WAS AN ACTIVE

WOMAN WITH FOUR ENERGETIC

CHILDREN, UNTIL

DEBILITATING MIGRAINES

STOPPED HER IN HER TRACKS.

DOCTORS CONTINUED HELP

HER, BUT A MESSAGE FROM

HER MOTHER LED HER TO

RECEIVE A MIRACLE.

Reporter: IN 2002,

JENNIFER ESOSO WAS NEWLY

MARRIED AND FULL OF LIFE.

I WAS A VERY ACTIVE

PERSON.

I LOVED TO GO OUT, PLAY,

HAVE FUN.

I LOVED TO HANG OUT WITH

MY FRIENDS AND JUST ENJOY

LIFE.

Reporter: HOWEVER, A

YEAR LATER, SHE BEGAN

HAVING DEBILITATING

HEADACHES.

IT WAS SO PAINFUL.

ALL I JUST WANTED TO DO

WAS LIE DOWN.

I DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR THE

NOISE, THE LIGHT --

EVERYTHING ACHED.

I COULDN'T EVEN KEEP MY

EYES OPEN, IT WAS THAT

BAD.

Reporter: OVER TIME,

THE HEADACHES ONLY GOT

WORSE.

THE PAIN BECAME SO

UNBEARABLE, IT WAS HARD

FOR HER TO TAKE CARE OF

HER FOUR CHILDREN.

WHILE HER HUSBAND WORKED,

SHE HAD TO DEPEND ON HER

MOTHER FOR HELP.

THERE ARE THINGS I

WOULD LOVE TO DO AS A

MOTHER, AND IT WAS REALLY

DISAPPOINTING FOR ME THAT

I CAN'T DO THEM WITH MY

KIDS.

Reporter: SHE TRIED

TAKING OVER-THE-COUNTER

PAIN MEDICATION, BUT

NOTHING WORKED.

SO SHE WENT TO SEE THE

DOCTOR.

HE TOLD ME I HAD

MIGRAINES.

AND I WAS SURPRISED, I WAS

LIKE MIGRAINE?

AND HE PLACED ME ON PILLS.

HE ALSO RECOMMENDED I GO

SEE AN EYE OPTICIAN,

BECAUSE HE THOUGHT IT HAD

SOMETHING TO DO WITH MY

EYES, SO I STARTED WEARING

GLASSES, BUT IT JUST KEPT

COMING BACK AND GETTING

WORSE.

Reporter: JENNIFER

AND HER MOTHER OFTEN

PRAYED TOGETHER.

ON THE MORNING OF

AUGUST 14, 2017, IT WAS NO

DIFFERENT.

I REMEMBER WE PRAYED

AND TALKED TO GOD ABOUT

IT.

WE TOLD HIM WE BELIEVE HE

HAS ALREADY DONE IT, AND

WE THANKED HIM FOR HEALING

ME.

Reporter: LATER THAT

MORNING, WHILE JENNIFER

WAS OUT, HER MOTHER WAS

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB,"

AND HEARD TERRY MEEUWSEN

PRAYING.

AS SOON AS HER DAUGHTER

RETURNED, SHE SHARED WHAT

HAD HAPPENED.

I HAD A WORD OF

PROPHECY FOR YOU FROM "THE

700 CLUB."

I CLAIMED THE HEALING FOR

YOU.

I CLAIMED THAT THE

HEADACHE WAS GONE AND

DECLARED THE WORD OF GOD.

THEN I WENT BACK TO THE

COMPUTER, AND I PLUGGED IN

THE DATE, AND I WATCHED

THE EPISODE FOR MYSELF.

AND I HEARD TERRY SAY THE

SAME THING THAT MY MOM

TOLD ME.

Terry: YOU HAVE

CHRONIC HEADACHES.

I MEAN, IT IS

LIFE-INTERRUPTING.

YOU HAVE TO CANCEL WORK.

SOMETIMES YOU'RE EVEN

NAUSEATED FROM THEM.

TODAY IS YOUR DAY, AND GOD

IS HEALING YOU.

JUST LIFT UP YOUR HANDS

AND RECEIVE THAT.

I LIFTED MY HANDS UP,

AND I SAID, GOD, I THANK

YOU FOR HEALING ME.

I RECEIVE THIS HEALING.

SOME TIME BETWEEN THE TIME

ME AND HER PRAYED, AND

BEFORE NIGHTTIME, I DIDN'T

HAVE A HEADACHE ANYMORE.

Reporter: AT FIRST

JENNIFER WAS A BIT

CAUTIOUS ABOUT ENGAGING IN

ANY MAJOR ACTIVITIES FOR

FEAR THAT THE MIGRAINES

WOULD RETURN.

BUT WHEN SHE WENT TWO

WEEKS WITHOUT A HEADACHE,

SHE KNEW WITHOUT A DOUBT

THAT GOD HAD HEALED HER.

> AND NOW SHE IS BACK TO

ENJOYING LIFE TO THE

FULLEST WITH HER FAMILY.

I HAVEN'T HAD ONE

EPISODE OF THAT TYPE OF

HEADACHE SINCE.

AND I REALLY GIVE GOD ALL

THE GLORY.

Pat: GOD IS REAL!

ALL RIGHT, HERE IS

SOMEBODY, PAMELA, WHO

LIVES IN NORTH LITTLE

ROCK, ARKANSAS, HAD

STOMACH ULCERS, BLEEDING

FOR 10 YEARS.

SHE WAS WATCHING THIS

PROGRAM, AND SHE HEARD

TERRY SAY, THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE BEEN

DIAGNOSED WITH SOME KIND

OF CONDITION IN YOUR

STOMACH, AND IT HAS TO DO

WITH THE LINING OF YOUR

STOMACH, AND GOD IS

HEALING YOU.

FROM THAT DAY, PAMELA HAS

NOT HAD ANY PAIN.

Terry: WELL, PAT,

THIS IS CHRISTINE WHO

LIVES IN NEW JERSEY, AND

SHE WAS CONCERNED FOR HER

FRIEND WHO WAS FACING

SERIOUS BOWEL SURGERY.

BEFORE THE SURGERY,

CHRISTINE WAS WATCHING

THIS PROGRAM AND HEARD YOU

PRAY, "SOMEBODY HAS A

DIGESTIVE BLOCKAGE.

GOD IS OPENING THAT

BLOCKAGE.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

YOU'LL FEEL LIKE HEATS IN

YOUR INSIDE."

SO SHE CLAIMED THE HEALING

FOR HER FRIEND.

AND THE DAY OF THE

SURGERY, THE DOCTOR SAW

HEALING AND THEREFORE

CANCELLED THE SURGERY.

AND THE FRIEND AVOIDED A

COLOSTOMY.

Pat: WOW.

> TERRY AND I ARE GOING

TO JOIN HANDS.

> I WANT YOU TO HOLD ON

TO GOD.

THERE IS NOTHING

IMPOSSIBLE.

WE PRAY FOR THE ANOINTING

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME

UPON THEM.

MAY THEY SEE THE GLORY OF

THE LORD.

SOMEBODY, YOU'VE GOT A

CHOKING.

IT IS LIKE SOMEBODY HAS

HIS HANDS ON YOUR THROAT

AND YOU'RE BEING CHOKED.

RIGHT NOW GOD HAS JUST

RELIEVED THAT AND YOU'RE

COMPLETELY HEALED.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

OCULAR ISSUES, AND IT IS

LIKE SHOOTING LIGHTS, AND

IT IS SO INTERRUPTIVE, AND

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW.

Pat: THERE IS ANOTHER

MIGRAINE, AND THE LORD HAS

JUST TOUCHED YOU.

RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT, JUST

TOUCH YOUR HEAD IN THE

NAME OF JESUS.

TOUCH.

THAT MIGRAINE IS GONE IN

THE NAME OF JESUS.

Terry: SOMEBODY ELSE,

YOU HAVE, LIKE, ARTHRITIS

IN YOUR HANDS.

YOU CAN HARDLY OPEN JARS

OR TURN ANYTHING ANYMORE.

STRETCH YOUR HANDS OUT.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION COMPLETELY FOR

YOU.

Pat: AND, LORD, FOR

EVERYONE IN THIS AUDIENCE,

LET THE ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT COME UPON

THEM.

MAY THEY KNOW YOUR

GRACIOUS POWER.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

Pat: THANK YOU FOR

BEING WITH US.

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE IS

FROM THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH:

"FOR I WILL RESTORE HEALTH

TO YOU AND HEAL OF YOUR

WOUNDS, SAYS THE LORD."

> WELL, TOMORROW, FIND

OUT WHY DETROIT TIGERS'

PITCHER DANIEL NORRIS

LIKES TO LIVE OUT OF A

VOLKSWAGEN VAN.

WE'LL HAVE THAT TOMORROW.

FOR ALL OF US, THIS IS PAT

ROBERTSON, AND TERRY IS

WITH US, AND THE TWO OF US

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE

TODAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
