700 Club Interactive - July 13, 2018

Josh Zeitz was abandoned by his mother and later adopted, after going to various foster homes. He struggled for a sense of belonging most of his life, until he found what he truly needed by accepting Christ as his Savior. Read Transcript


Gordon: ABANDONED BY

HIS PARENTS AT A YOUNG

AGE...

SO I JUST KIND OF

FELT -- NEVER FELT LOVE.

Gordon: AS HE GREW

UP, HIS DISTRUST TURNED

INTO ANGER.

I WAS MAD AND ANGRY AT

THE WORLD BECAUSE I HAD

DEALT WITH THINGS IN MY

PAST.

Gordon: WHILE IN

JAIL, HE FOUND A BOOK THAT

CHANGED EVERYTHING.

PLUS...

IT WOULD HURT ME SO BAD

THAT I WOULD HAVE TO GO

BACK TO THE DOCTOR'S.

Gordon: AFTER WEEKS

OF SUFFERING WITH AN

INJURED SHOULDER, SHE

RECEIVED HEALING.

YOU'LL CATCH IT ALL ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

WELL, THANKS FOR JOINING

US.

EVERYONE WATCHING REJOICED

WHEN NEWS EMERGED THAT

RESCUERS SAVED THE

THAILAND BOYS' SOCCER TEAM

RECENTLY TRAPPED IN A

CAVE.

NOW THE FOCUS HAS SHIFTED

FROM RESCUE TO RECOVERY.

TEAMS SPENT SEVERAL DAYS

EXTRACTING THE BOYS ONE BY

ONE.

BECAUSE SOME BOYS HAD NO

OR LITTLE SWIMMING

EXPERIENCE, THEY TETHERED

THEM TO A RESCUER.

Terry: THOUGH THEY

ARE DESCRIBED AS IN GOOD

SPIRITS, SOME ARE

EXPERIENCING HEALTH

PROBLEMS.

EACH BOY LOST AN AVERAGE

OF FOUR POUNDS DURING

THEIR 18-DAY ORDEAL, BUT

SURVIVED OFF DRIPPING

WATER INSIDE THE CAVE.

THEY'LL BE HOSPITALIZED

FOR AT LEAST SEVEN DAYS.

BUT WHAT A GREAT ENDING

TO --

Gordon: A VERY GREAT

ENDING.

NONE OF THEM LOST.

AND KUDOS TO THE COACH WHO

ACTUALLY FOLLOWED THEM

INTO THAT CAVE TO PROTECT

THEM AND THEN KEEP THEM

ALIVE FOR THAT PERIOD OF

TIME.

IT IS AN AMAZING STORY.

> A 10-YEAR-OLD BOY IN

TEXAS IS ON HIS WAY TO

SEEING HIS DREAM COME

TRUE.

ASHE CRANE SAYS HE HAS

ALWAYS WANTED SOMEWHERE TO

PLAY HOCKEY AND NOW

NOTHING IS BLOCKING HIS

PATH.

NOT EVEN A HEART

CONDITION.

HE HAS HAD A FUNCTIONING

HEART.

HE HAS GONE THROUGH MORE

THAN 20 SURGERIES AND HIS

COURAGE HASN'T GONE

UNNOTICED.

"MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION"

IS PARTNERING WITH THE

CITY OF KYLE TO BUILD A

HOCKEY RINK.

HOW GENEROUS PEOPLE

ARE.

THERE IS NO POINT IN

MAKING THE SACRIFICES THAT

WE'VE MADE IF YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO LET THEM TRY

THINGS OUT AND DO WHAT

THEY WANT TO DO.

Gordon: SO FAR THE

COMMUNITY HAS RAISED MORE

THAN $130,000.

AND THE KYLE CITY MANAGER

SAYS THE GOAL IS TO BREAK

GROUND BY FALL.

AND THAT IS AN AMAZING

WISH COME TRUE.

THAT'S REALLY GOOD.

Terry: THAT'S A WHOLE

COMMUNITY BEING AWESOME.

THAT'S GREAT.

> SPEAKING OF AWESOME,

PATIENTS AND PARENTS AT A

VIRGINIA HOSPITAL WERE IN

FOR A BIG SURPRISE

RECENTLY.

WONDER WOMAN ACTRESS GAL

GADOT LIVED UP TO HER

CHARACTER'S REPUTATION

WHEN SHE TOOK A BREAK FROM

THE WONDER WOMAN SEQUEL

SET TO MAKE A SURPRISE

VISIT TO A HOSPITAL IN

FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA.

A DOCTOR TWEETED ON

FRIDAY, SHARING A PICTURE

OF GADOT WITH THE STAFF

AND WRITING, "YOU ARE A

TRUE WONDER WOMAN."

THE MOTHER OF

FIVE-YEAR-OLD CAROLYN WHO

IS FIGHTING LEUKEMIA --

SHE SHARED HER PHOTOS WITH

US, AND YOU CAN VISIT HER

DAUGHTER'S SUPPORT WEBSITE

GordonCARINGCAROLYNSUPPORT..

Terry: A SPECIAL

PROPOSAL FROM A UNITED

STATES ARMY SOLDIER IS

TOUCHING HEARTS ACROSS THE

NATION.

AUSTIN FINCH HAD TO TRAVEL

FROM FT. BRAGG IN NORTH

CAROLINA TO TAMPA,

FLORIDA, IN ORDER TO DO

SO.

ON THE PLANE, HE SHARED

HIS PLAN WITH A FELLOW

TRAVELLER.

Gordon: AND SHE

REVEALED SHE IS A

PHOTOGRAPHER AND OFFERED

TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE

SPECIAL MOMENT.

MANY OF THE PASSENGERS

WAITED, WATCHED, AND

CHEERED WHEN HIS

GIRLFRIEND SAID YES.

AND NOW THE PROPOSAL STORY

IS TOUCHING HEARTS ACROSS

THE NATION.

FINCH JOINED THE MILITARY

AT 17, AND DEPLOYS IN

FEBRUARY AS A MEMBER OF

THE 82nd AIRBORNE, AND

THAT'S A STORY TO

REMEMBER.

Terry: WHAT A GREAT

OPPORTUNITY TO GET A

MEMORY MOMENT FOR YOUR

KIDS LATER ON, OF THAT

SPECIAL DAY.

I ALWAYS HAVE A LITTLE BIT

OF ANXIETY IN ME WHEN THEY

ASK, THINKING, DO WE KNOW

THAT THE ANSWER IS GOING

TO BE YES.

Gordon: HAVE YOU HAD

SOME CONVERSATIONS?

Terry: LET'S HOPE SO.

Gordon: IT IS THE

LAST STRAW FOR SEVERAL FOR

FRANCHISES, LIKE STARBUCKS

AND McDONALD'S.

THEY HAVE DECIDED TO BAN

OR CUT DOWN ON PLASTIC

STRAW USE.

AND LOCAL RESTAURANTS ARE

JOINING IN AS WELL.

SOME LIKE 619 CANTINA IS

CHOOSING A PLANT-BASED

ALTERNATIVE.

Terry: BUT FOR OT OTHER

RESTAURANTS, ALTERNATIVES

ARE TOO PRICEY.

THEY'RE FOUR TIMES MORE

EXPENSIVE THAN PLASTIC.

THE COST ISN'T THE BIGGEST

ISSUE.

IT IS THE ENVIRONMENTAL

IMPACT THAT WE'RE LEAVING.

MOST PEOPLE SEEM VERY

UNDERSTANDING AND WILLING

TO SUPPORT AS WELL.

Terry: WELL, SOME

MIGHT SEE THIS AS A

PASSING TREND, BUT IT

COULD BECOME A REALITY.

SEVERAL COUNTRIES,

INCLUDING TAIWAN, THE

U.K., AND AUSTRALIA, HAVE

PASSED LAWS BANNING SINGLE

USE STRAWS AND PLASTIC

PLASTICWARE.

Gordon: LET'S WATCH

OUT WHAT WE'RE DOING TO

THE ENVIRONMENT.

SINGLE USE PLASTIC -- YOU

LOOK AT THE STATS, AND

EVERY 20 SECONDS IT IS

LIKE A WHOLE TRUCKLOAD OF

GARBAGE OF PLASTIC GETS

DUMPED INTO THE PACIFIC

OCEAN.

AND FROM IS A WHOLE PATCH

OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN THAT

IS JUST A GARBAGE DUMP.

SO WHAT CAN WE DO?

IT LOOKS LIKE WE CAN DO

SOMETHING.

Terry: MY HUSBAND AND

I JUST HAD LUNCH AT "TASTE

UNLIMITED," AND THERE WAS

A SIGN AT THE STRAW

CONTAINER SAYING, WE'RE

GOING TO BE CHANGING OUT

OUR STRAWS.

SORRY FOR THE

INCONVENIENCE.

SO IT IS HAPPENING IN

PLACES WE DON'T EVEN

REALIZE.

GOOD MOVE.

GOOD MOVE.

Gordon: ONE FINAL

THING: WATCH OUT IF YOU'RE

HANDICAPPED.

WE NEED TO MAKE AN

EXCEPTION FOR THOSE

BECAUSE THEY ABSOLUTELY

NEED THEM IN ORDER TO BE

ABLE TO DRINK.

> UP NEXT, A BOY WHO WAS

IN AND OUT OF THE FOSTER

SYSTEM GROWS UP TO BE A

MAN IN AND OUT OF PRISON.

IF I WASN'T HIGH, I

WASN'T HAPPY.

I WOULD STEAL MONEY FROM

ANYBODY I COULD, I WOULD

DO ANYTHING I COULD JUST

TO STAY HIGH BECAUSE

THAT'S ALL I WANTED TO DO,

WHICH WAS ESCAPE FROM

REALITY.

Gordon: SEE HOW HE

FOUND WHAT HE WAS ALWAYS

LOOKING FOR INSIDE A

PRISON CELL.

THAT AND MORE WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Gordon: JOSH GREW UP

SURROUNDED BY CHAOS.

HIS MOTHER LEFT WHEN HE

WAS VERY YOUNG, AND HE

NEVER KNEW HIS FATHER.

SO JOSH LIVED IN A STATE

OF CONSTANT FEAR AND

CONFUSION.

AT ONE POINT HE WAS SENT

TO A GUARDIAN'S HOME, AND

YEARS LATER FOUND HIMSELF

BEING SENT TO PRISON.

Reporter: JOSH ZEITZ

WAS A YOUNG CHILD WHEN HIS

MOTHER LEFT HIM.

SHE WAS A DRUG ADDICT

AND JUST NEGLECTFUL AND

ALWAYS ON DRUGS AND

THINGS.

I DON'T EVER REMEMBER HER

ABUSING US PHYSICALLY --

WHETHER SHE DID OR NOT, I

DON'T KNOW, BUT IT WAS THE

WHOLE NEGLECTING THING.

Reporter: HE NEVER

KNEW HIS FATHER.

I ONLY REMEMBER ONE

GUY, WHO HAD A MOTORCYCLE,

AND I WENT OUT AND BURNT

MY LEG ON THE MOTORCYCLE

ONE TIME.

Reporter: JOSH WAS

TAKEN TO AN INSTITUTION

FOR ABUSED AND NEGLECTED

CHILDREN.

I DIDN'T LIKE IT

BECAUSE IT WAS SCARY.

IT WAS LIKE A CHILDREN'S

FACTORY.

THE ADULTS WOULD WALK THE

HALLWAYS AND TALK TO YOU,

AND IT WAS, LIKE, WHO ARE

THESE PEOPLE.

YOU DIDN'T GET THAT SENSE

OF CARING FROM THEM.

IT WAS MORE JUST A DRY,

LIKE, THIS IS WHAT WE DO.

THIS IS THE NEXT KID.

SO I JUST KIND OF FELT --

NEVER FELT LOVED.

Reporter: FROM THE

GUARDIAN HOME, HE WENT

FROM ONE FOSTER HOME TO

ANOTHER.

I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE A

PART OF THE FAMILY.

I FELT LIKE AN OUTCAST,

BASICALLY, LIKE, ON THE

FRINGES.

THEY LOVED YOU JUST

ENOUGH, BUT YOU NEVER

REALLY FELT -- IT WAS NOT

MOM AND DAD.

Reporter: THEN AT

SEVEN YEARS OLD, JOSH WAS

ADOPTED.

THEY SAY, OH, I LOVE

YOU, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT

LOVE MEANS.

I'VE NEVER SEEN A REAL

FAMILY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT

LOOKS LIKE.

I DON'T REMEMBER FEELING

LOVED, GETTING HUGGED, OR

ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

SO ANY KIND OF ADULT OR

AUTHORITY FIGURE IN MY

LIFE, I CERTAINLY HAD NO

GROUNDS TO STAND ON TO SAY

THIS IS HEALTHY OR THIS IS

UNHEALTHY.

I JUST DIDN'T TRUST THEM.

I DON'T TRUST PEOPLE AT

ALL.

Reporter: AS JOSH

BECAME A TEENAGER, THOSE

FEELINGS OF DISTRUST AND

ISOLATION SOON TURNED INTO

ANGER AND RESENTMENT.

I WAS MAD AND ANGRY AT

THE WORLD BECAUSE I HAD

DEALT WITH THINGS IN MY

PAST, AND I FELT LIKE WHEN

I BECAME A TEENAGER, I WAS

ALREADY CHARGED WITH

HORMONES, I WAS CHARGED AS

A TEENAGER, AND I JUST

WASN'T FEELING LIKE I HAD

THE LOVE AND APPRECIATION

I NEEDED.

AND SO I THINK FOR ME, THE

BIGGEST THING I DID WAS I

USED MY ADOPTIVE MOM AS A

SCAPEGOAT.

AND EVERY TIME SHE WOULD

TRY TO COME AT ME AND LOVE

ME, I WOULD HATE HER THE

MORE.

Reporter: HE WOULD GO

TO CHURCH WITH HIS

ADOPTIVE PARENTS, BUT IT

WAS JUST A FORMALITY.

WE ALL HAVE FUN AND IT

IS A GREAT TIME, BUT I

WOULD NEVER SAY THERE WAS

ANYTHING TOO SPIRITUAL

TALKED ABOUT.

THERE WAS NEVER REALLY

ANYTHING ABOUT JESUS.

IT WAS THE PAST SUNDAY

SCHOOL STUFF, FATHER

ABRAHAM, AND STUFF LIKE

THAT.

Reporter: STILL

SEARCHING FOR A SENSE OF

FAMILY AND BELONGING TO

SOMETHING, JOSH GRAVITATED

TOWARDS HIS FRIENDS.

HE STARTED DRINKING AND

SMOKING POT.

AND THEY STARTED

TALKING TO YOU ABOUT

SEXUAL THINGS AND

PORNOGRAPHY.

AND FROM THAT POINT ON, I

STARTED EXPERIMENTING THE

THINGS I HEARD AT SCHOOL,

I STARTED DOING AT HOME.

Reporter: WHEN HIS

ADOPTIVE PARENTS GOT

DIVORCED, JOSH BLAMED HIS

MOTHER AND HER GOD.

MY MOM WAS ALWAYS

PREACHING THIS GOD THING

AT ME, AND I DIDN'T LIKE

THAT.

IT WAS SOMETHING I WAS

ANGRY ABOUT.

SO WHEN SHE AND MY DAD GOT

DIVORCED, IT WAS KIND OF

LIKE AN AFFIRMATION IN ME.

AND I WOULD SAY, GOD IS

NOT REAL, SEE?

THIS WHOLE GOD THING, IT'S

NOT REAL.

Reporter: JOSH

STARTED STEALING SO HE

COULD BUY DRUGS.

IF I WASN'T HIGH, I

WASN'T HAPPY.

THAT'S ALL I DID, WAS TRY

TO GET HIGH.

I WOULD STEAL CHANGE.

I WOULD STEAL MONEY FROM

MY DAD.

I WOULD STEAL MONEY FROM

MY GRANDPARENTS.

I WOULD STEAL MONEY FROM

ANYBODY I COULD.

I WOULD DO ANYTHING I

COULD JUST TO STAY HIGH

BECAUSE THAT'S ALL I

WANTED TO DO, WAS JUST

ESCAPE FROM REALITY.

Reporter: BY 19 HE

WAS ARRESTED FIVE TIMES

FOR BURGLARY.

IN JAIL FOR MULTIPLE

FELONIES, JOSH FOUND A

BOOK.

AND I STARTED READING

ABOUT A MAN WHO...HAD

GIVEN HIS LIFE TO JESUS.

AND THIS MAN WAS HOOKED ON

DRUGS, HE WAS ROBBING

PEOPLE.

AND I DIDN'T SEE HIM.

I SAW MYSELF ON THE PAGES.

AND SUDDENLY IT WAS, LIKE,

WHOA, JESUS WAS IN MY CELL

WITH ME.

AND HE WAS SAYING, DO YOU

WANT TO RECEIVE THIS LOVE?

DO YOU WANT THIS

FORGIVENESS?

AND IMMEDIATELY IT WAS

LIKE A MOVIE BEING PLAYED

OUT IN MY MIND.

I WAS SEEING ALL OF THESE

THINGS I HAD DONE.

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

MY LIFE, IT WAS MY FAULT.

I HAD PUT MYSELF IN THIS

PLACE.

AND YET GOD LOVED ME

STILL.

AND HE WAS GIVING ME AN

OPPORTUNITY TO ACCEPT HIS

FORGIVENESS.

THIS LOVE TO FILL THIS

VOID THAT I'D BEEN TRYING

TO FILL MY WHOLE LIFE.

JESUS WAS THERE TO FILL

IT.

AND I SAID YES.

AND I STARTED SHAKING AND

CRYING.

AND IT WAS LIKE I WAS A

THOUSAND POUNDS LIGHTER.

I REMEMBER SHORTLY AFTER,

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR, AND

I SAW JOY AND LIGHT EN MY IN MY

EYES.

I HAD NEVER SEEN THIS

BEFORE.

I FELT LIKE...WHOA.

THE PORNOGRAPHY ADDICTION

WAS GONE.

I HAD NO DESIRE FOR IT.

CUSSING, GONE.

ANGER, GONE.

ABSOLUTE, 100%, RADICAL

OVERNIGHT TRANSFORMATION.

JESUS WAS MY LORD.

Reporter: JOSH MET

AND MARRIED MITZI IN 2003,

AND THEY STARTED THEIR OWN

FAMILY.

TODAY THEY HAVE THREE

CHILDREN, MARIAH, ISAIAH,

AND JO JOSAIAH.

I RECEIVED JESUS AT 17,

AND I DID NOT KNOW MY

BIBLE LIKE HE DID.

I WAS, LIKE, THIS GUY IS

GOING SOMEWHERE, AND I

WANT TO BE A PART OF IT.

I'M SITTING HERE TODAY

AND I HAVE A FAMILY.

I'VE GOT KIDS THAT LOVE

JESUS.

I'VE GOT A WIFE WHO LOVES

ME.

I'VE GOT A FAMILY.

THE ONE THING I WANTED MY

WHOLE LIFE.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN A STORY

OF RESTORATION.

OF REDEMPTION.

WHAT WAS STOLEN FROM ME IN

MY CHILDHOOD, GOD HAS

BROUGHT IT BACK.

Gordon: AND HE'LL DO

THE SAME THING FOR YOU.

YOU CAN HAVE THE SAME

EXPERIENCE.

TO KNOW THAT THERE IS A

GOD THAT LOVES YOU, THAT

THERE IS A GOD WHO'S NAME

IS LOVE.

AND THAT HE CARES

INFINITELY FOR YOU.

AND HE WANTS GOOD THINGS

FOR YOU.

HE WANTS TO PUT YOU IN A

FAMILY.

HE WANTS TO PUT YOU IN

RELATIONSHIP.

HE WANTS TO PROVIDE FOR

YOUR EVERY NEED.

NOW, WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO

GET THERE?

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET

THIS KNOWLEDGE, TO HAVE

THIS EXPERIENCE?

WELL, JOSH HAD IT IN A

PRISON CELL.

IT DOESN'T TAKE GOING TO

PRISON.

YOU CAN HAVE IT RIGHT

WHERE YOU ARE.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

IT TAKES YOUR WHOLE HEART.

TO SAY, GOD, IF YOU'RE

THERE, IF YOU REALLY LOVE

ME, IF YOU REALLY CARE FOR

ME, COULD YOU SHOW ME?

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART -- THIS

ISN'T SOMETHING WHERE

YOU'RE PLAYING A GAME WITH

GOD.

THIS IS SOMETHING WHERE IF

YOU'RE ALL IN, AND YOU

MEAN IT, HE'LL SHOW UP FOR

YOU.

HE'LL ANSWER THAT PRAYER.

HE'LL SHOW YOU THAT HE IS

GOD, AND THAT HE DOES LOVE

YOU AND HE WILL FORGIVE

YOU, HE WILL SET YOU FREE.

WHAT YOU SAW HAPPEN TO

JOSH CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.

YOU CAN HAVE THE SAME JOY,

THE SAME LIGHT IN YOUR

EYES.

THE SAME PURPOSE,

DIRECTION FOR LIFE.

YOU CAN HAVE ALL OF IT IF

YOU JUST ASK.

SO IF THIS IS FOR YOU, IF

THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT, BOW

YOUR HEAD WITH ME.

LET'S PRAY A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER AND LET GOD SHOW UP

FOR YOU TODAY, NOT SOME

FAR OFF TIME, BUT RIGHT

NOW.

LET'S PRAY.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

HIS NAME, SAY IT OUT LOUD.

JESUS, I COME TO YOU AND I

SURRENDER ALL.

I TURN MY WHOLE HEART TO

YOU.

AND I OPEN AND I ASK THAT

YOU WOULD COME IN, THAT

YOU WOULD SHOW UP FOR ME,

THAT YOU WOULD FORGIVE ME

OF ALL THE THINGS THAT

I'VE DONE WRONG, THAT YOU

WOULD SET ME FREE.

AND, JESUS, IF YOU DO THIS

FOR ME, I WANT TO FOLLOW

YOU ALL THE DAYS OF MY

LIFE.

HERE MY PRAYER.

COME INTO MY HEART.

MAKE ME NEW.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED, LORD

GOD, FILL THEM WITH YOUR

LOVE.

FILL THEM TO OVER FLEEING.

LEFLOWING.LET THEM KNOW THEIR PRAYER

HAS BEEN ANSWERED TODAY.

BE WITH THEM.

SURROUND THEM WITH YOUR

LOVE.

FOR I ASK IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME,

HERE IS SOMETHING MORE I

WANT YOU TO DO: I WANT YOU

TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND

MAKE A PHONE CALL, AND LET

SOMEBODY KNOW, I JUST

PRAYED AND ASKED JESUS

INTO MY HEART.

THE NUMBER IS ON THE

SCREEN: 1-800-700-7000.

WHEN YOU CALL, WE'VE GOT

SOMETHING FREE FOR YOU.

IT IS A PACKET, AND IT'S

CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IT EXPLAINS WHAT DO YOU DO

NOW?

HOW DO YOU LIVE A

CHRISTIAN LIFE?

WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

IT'S ALL FREE.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US AND WE'LL SEND IT TO

YOU FREE.

1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: COMING UP, A

WOMAN IS INJURED ON THE

JOB.

I COULD FEEL THIS PAIN

IN MY SHOULDER.

AS TIME PROGRESSED, IT

WOULD HURT ME SO BAD.

I SUFFERED ABOUT TWO WEEKS

WITH THAT SHOULDER.

Terry: SURGERY DIDN'T

Terry: AFTER

HENRIETTA LAMAR INJURED

HER ROTATOR CUFF, SHE HAD

SURGERY TO REPAIR IT, BUT

THE PAIN PERSISTED EVEN

AFTER SHE COMPLETED

THERAPY.

TODAY HENRIETTA IS TOTALLY

HEALED, THANKS TO A

MIRACLE THAT TOOK PLACE

RIGHT IN HER OWN HOME.

I HAD ROTATOR CUFF

INJURY ON MY JOB.

I COULD FEEL THIS TEAR IN

MY SHOULDER.

SO I WENT A COUPLE OF

DAYS, AND IT WAS, YOU

KNOW, HURTING AND HURTING.

I WENT TO THE DOCTOR --

THEY SENT ME TO THE

DOCTOR'S.

AND THEN HE DECIDED I

NEEDED SURGERY.

SO I HAD SURGERY ON IT.

AND I WENT TO THERAPY AND

EVERYTHING.

SO IT WAS BETTER.

BUT AS TIME PROGRESSED, IT

WOULD HURT ME SO BAD THAT

I WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK TO

THE DOCTOR.

SO AT THIS TIME I DID GO

BACK.

HE HAD GIVEN ME A SHOT IN

MY SHOULDER, BUT IT DIDN'T

WORK.

IT DIDN'T WORK THIS TIME.

I SUFFERED ABOUT TWO WEEKS

WITH THAT SHOULDER.

AND ONE MORNING I TURNED

ON "THE 700 CLUB," AND

GORDON GAVE A WORD OF

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE

ROTATOR CUFF.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE, YOU HAVE

PROBLEMS WITH YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER.

IT IS A VARIETY OF THINGS,

DAMAGE FROM AN INJURY,

DAMAGE TO THE LIGAMENTS,

DAMAGE TO THE JOINT,

DAMAGE TO THE NERVE.

IN JESUS' NAME, BE HEALED

AND BE RESTORED.

AND I KNEW HE WAS JUST

SPEAKING TO ME BECAUSE I

WAS PRAYING AND ASKING GOD

TO HEAL ME.

AND HE SAID DO SOMETHING I

COULDN'T DO.

AT THAT MOMENT, I COULDN'T

LIFT MY ARM.

BUT I TOOK MY LEFT ARM AND

I DID, I LIFTED IT AS FAR

AS I COULD GET IT.

THAT DAY THE ENEMY TRIED

TO COME IN AND TELL ME I

WASN'T HEALED.

AND I SAID, OH, NO, I'M

HEALED.

ALL THROUGHOUT THAT DAY, I

WOULD LIFT MY ARM AND

RAISE IT AS FAR AS I

COULD.

IN ABOUT THREE OR FOUR

DAYS, I COULD LIFT MY ARM

TOTALLY, ALL THE WAY UP.

AND I WAS JUST PRAISING

GOD FOR WHAT HE HAD DONE

FOR ME.

MY SHOULDER IS TOTALLY

HEALED.

NO PROBLEMS, NO HURT, OR

ANYTHING.

I AM TOTALLY HEALED.

AND I PRAYED AND I THANK

GOD FOR MY HEALING EVERY

DAY.

AND TODAY I'M LIFTING IT

ALL THE WAY UP, PRAISING

GOD.

AND TELLING EVERYONE

EVERYWHERE I GO WHAT GOD

HAS DONE FOR ME.

Terry: YOU KNOW, IT'S

TRUE.

SOMETIMES WE DON'T

RECOGNIZE ALL OF THE

BLESSINGS WE HAVE UNTIL

WE'RE GONE.

THEN WE RECOGNIZE HOW

DEPENDENT WE ARE ON GOD TO

MEET OUR NEED.

IN A SITUATION LIKE

HENRIETTA'S, WE COME TO

THE REALIZATION THAT NOT

ONLY ARE WE DEPENDENT ON

HIS WORD, BUT HE IS

FAITHFUL TO PERFORM WHAT

HE SAYS IN HIS WORD.

> THERE IS A PRAYER

REQUEST FROM JANICE, WHO

IS ASKING FOR PRAYER FOR

HER HUSBAND.

SHE SAYS HE IS CLAIMING

THE POWER OF GOD TO

COMPLETELY HEAL HIM FROM A

DIAGNOSIS OF BRAIN CANCER.

MARIA SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY

FOR MY LEFT ANKLE.

THERE ARE TIMES IT IS SO

PAINFUL, I CAN HARDLY

WALK."

Gordon: GI GWENDOLYN

SAYS, "PLEASE PRAY FOR MY

BROTHER, HE IS IN THE

HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW.

."

AND ANITA SAYS, "THE

DOCTOR SAYS I NEED MY LEFT

KNEE REPLACED, BUT I KNOW

GOD CAN HEAL ME BECAUSE HE

IS OUR ALMIGHTY GOD."

GOD'S EYES ARE GOING TO

AND FRO OVER THE WHOLE

EARTH TO SHOW HIMSELF

STRONG.

TO WHO?

TO PEOPLE WHO'S HEARTS ARE

LOYAL TO HIM.

HENRIETTA, WHAT SHE DID

OVER FOUR DAYS, SHE SAID,

I'M GOING TO RAISE MY ARM

TO PRAISE GOD.

I'M GOING TO CLAIM MY

HEALING.

I'M GOING TO SHOW THAT I'M

LOYAL TO HIM.

I BELIEVE IN HIM.

AND ON THE FOURTH DAY, HER

ARM WENT UP ON ITS OWN.

THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

BECAUSE GOD'S EYES ARE

LOOKING FOR THAT.

HE ALWAYS RESPONDS TO

FAITH.

HE IS LOOKING FOR IT RIGHT

NOW.

SO IN AN ACT OF FAITH, LAY

YOUR HAND ON THAT AREA OF

THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING.

AND WE ARE GOING TO AGREE.

AND HERE IS A WONDERFUL

VERSE: WHEN TWO OR MORE

AGREE TOUCHING ANYTHING,

IT SHALL BE DONE.

LORD, WE JUST LIFT THESE

NEEDS TO YOU, THESE

RELATIVES WHO HAVE CANCER,

AND ALL OF THESE PRAYER

REQUESTS, AND FOR THOSE

WATCHING RIGHT NOW AND

LAYING A HAND ON THAT AREA

OF THE BODY THAT NEEDS

HEALING, WE JOIN WITH THEM

AND WE SAY OUT LOUD TO IT,

BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS'

NAME, AND BE RESTORED.

PAIN, LEAVE MY BODY NOW.

DISEASE, LEAVE MY BODY

NOW.

LET THERE BE NO MORE

INFIRMITY, NO MORE LACK.

LET THERE BE HEALING FROM

THE TOP OF MY HEAD TO THE

SOLES OF MY FEET.

THERE IS SOMEONE LAYING

YOUR HAND ON YOUR RIGHT

SHOULDER, AND THAT PAIN

JUST LEFT YOU NOW.

RAISE BOTH YOUR ARMS TO

THE LORD AND JUST THANK

HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE

FOR YOU.

HE HAS COMPLETELY HEALED

THAT JOINT.

TERRY?

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE A CONDITION IN

YOUR EYE.

IT IS LIKE YOU CAN SEE

ONLY THROUGH A SMALL HOLE

RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF

YOUR VISION.

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU, AND

CLAIM IT AS THAT HOLE

EXPANDS AND EXPANDS AND

EXPANDS UNTIL YOUR VISION

IS RESTORED IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A

DETACHED RETINA IN YOUR

RIGHT EYE.

GOD HAS HEALED YOU.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU NEED HEALING, CALL

US.

JUST PICK UP THE PHONE.

> HERE IS A WORD: "BE

KIND TO ONE ANOTHER,

TENDER-HEARTED, FORGIVING

ONE ANOTHER, AS GOD IN

CHRIST FORGAVE YOU."

GOD BLESS YOU, WE'LL SEE

YOU AGAIN.
