A mother with â€œholesâ€ on her brain is slipping into dementia and the doctors offer no hope. Watch the incredible outcome. Plus, Bishop Joseph Walker shares how his church is reaching the masses through social media.
- [Announcer] The followingprogram is sponsored
- [Narrator] Coming up,
their mom had holes in her brain.
- We just gradually becamemore and more concerned.
- [Narrator] And was quicklyslipping in to dementia.
- [Daughter] I remember feelinglike I was losing my mom.
- [Narrator] The doctorssaid there was no hope.
- The best thing you can dois pray she dies quickly.
- [Narrator] Now, watch hermake an incredible recovery.
- [Husband] Powerful things happen.
- [Narrator] On today's 700 Club.
- [Man] This is a miracle.
- Well welcome to the 700 Club.
Fires are exploding in California,
they talk like hurricane force.
And it's the biggest I think wildfire
in the history of the state.
Still burning strong andpeople are suffering.
Here in this area, (mumbles)our wonderful Virginia Beach
is gonna be a heat index of about 103.
- Today.- We've had a very wet,
hot summer.- Very wet, hot summer.
But anyhow, across the nation has been
terrible heat but all the way in Europe
the Europeans are not used to this
and almost close to the Arctic,
places like in Norway and Sweden,
are having a record heat, so
I'm not a fan of global warming,
but whatever it is,
something's really hitting this planet.
And not only that, butthere's some earthquakes
and Tsnumani type things going on.
A big one in Indonesia,
but anyhow we'll talk moreabout it on the program.
Right now, US sanctionshit Iran's economy today.
Adding pressure to a regime under attack
from the inside.
Iranians are rising up,furious over a terrible economy
and the tyranny of a group of men,
religious leaders called the Ayatollahs.
- Well the action followsPresident Trump's decision
to leave the Iranian nuclear agreement.
After signing the executive order,
the President sent another warning.
Tweeting today that, quote,
anyone doing businesswith Iran will not be
doing business with the United States.
Gary Lane has the details.
- The US sanctionstarget Iran's technology,
automobile, currency, andprecious metal industries.
The punitive measures areexpected to further damage
the country's economy.
And exert more pressure on the regime.
In Iran, Trump's strategy is already
having an effect.
A worsening economy has ledto anti-government protests.
A growing number of Iraniansare demanding an end
to the regime.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
praised President Trump's decision.
Calling it an important momentfor Israel and the world.
- [Translator] I call onthe countries of Europe
who talk about stoppingIran to join this move.
The time has come to stop talking.
The time has come to do.
And that is exactly whatthe United States is doing.
And that's what Europe should do.
- [Gary] But the EuropeanUnion is unlikely
to join in.
It's taking actions to shieldbusinesses from penalties
imposed for violating US sanctions.
They insure lucrative oil,banking, and investment deals
with the Islamic Republic can move forward
when a tougher set of sanctionstakes effect in November.
President Rouhani denounced the sanctions,
calling them psychological warfare.
But he opened the door to direct talks
A US apology and payback.
- [Translator] If the USgovernment is ready today
to negotiate about paying compensation
to the Iranian nation,from 1953 until now,
over its meddling in thelife of Iranian people,
we are ready for talks,
to see how they are going to compensate
and pay us back.
- [Gary] President Obama already returned
at least 150 billion dollarsfrom a canceled arms deal.
Middle East analyst, Robert Spencer.
- It was the Shah's regimethat had made the arms deal
that was canceled.
And so it did not by right belong to
the Islamic Republic.
- [Gary] And even if the US stands alone
against Iran, Spencersays, Trump's approach
may be enough to make a huge difference.
- He has reversed thepolicies of appeasement
that Obama pursued soindefatigably for eight years.
And this could bring aboutthe downfall of the regime,
which would be good for the Iranians
and good for the world.
- [Gary] Gary Lane, CBN News.
- Well just think about it folks,
those people have beenyakking away for years.
They call us the great Satan,
they call Israel the little Satan,
they say over and overagain that their policy is
the utter destruction of Israel.
They say that they want to bring war
against the United States.
They are fermentingrevolution all over the world
in places that you can imagine.
And throughout the Middle East,
particularly their proxiesHezbollah and others
are warring against democraticallyelected governments.
And it's time they get reigned in.
And Obama I mean gavethem 150 billion dollars
and what are they gonnado with that money?
They're gonna use it to have
the quds force and others in action.
And the President is doingthe absolute right thing.
And the thing that's important is,
these companies that aregonna have secondary sanctions
if they deal with Iran,they've got a choice,
do you wanna do business with Iran
or do you wanna do businesswith the United States?
And most of 'em realizethat the United States
market is far, far bigger than Iran.
But what's happening is,
inflation is running rampant in Iran.
And it's time, I rememberthe former Israeli Ambassador
to Iran was a friend andhe came on this program
he said, the most importantthing is that these
students and these laborleaders get together,
get encouraged, and theywill overthrow the regime,
they will do it.
And we need to have something in place
to come in and take over.
And it's time for a regime change in Iran.
It is time for us to pushthat, not just be nice.
But to recognize we've got,that thing has got to go.
It's been an outrageous blot on.
Iran is a beautiful countryand wonderful people,
the Iranian people loveAmerica, they love freedom.
And these mullahs whocome in and seize power
and put in a theocratic dictatorship,
it's time for it to go.
Now, in other news.
Republicans in Ohio face a testthat could have implications
for the elections.
Wendy Griffith has more on that.
- Thanks Pat, a tight racein an Ohio special election
could signal trouble forRepublicans in the midterms.
That's according to one poll.
The Republican candidatein a long held conservative
district has a one point leadover the Democrat contender.
Republican Governor John Cassick says,
the race shouldn't evenbe close but it is.
Democratic challenger Danny O'Conner
is critical of bothRepublicans and Democrats.
His opponent TroyBalderson recently hosted
President Trump at a town rally.
Political analysts saythe outcome could be
a referendum on thePresident's popularity.
Meanwhile Democrats arefacing a battle within
their own party, a battlethat could make a difference
in the midterms, after somesurprising primary results
progressives wanna takethe party to the far left,
moderates who want to appeal to the middle
say, not so fast.
CBN's Jenna Browder hasthe story from Washington.
- [Crowd] Trump, traitor, treason.
- [Jenna] Treason.
- The penalty that weare all paying right now
for the President's treasonis we are losing our allies.
- [Jenna] Impeachment.
- We believe that PresidentTrump has violated
the Constitution and we'veintroduced five articles
- [Jenna] And getting rid of ICE,
the US Immigration andCustoms Enforcement.
- You think you shouldget rid of the agency?
- I believe that it hasbecome a deportation force.
- [Jenna] All ideas pushedby left leaning members
of the Democratic party.
But are they too extreme?
More moderate Democrats sayyes and want to reign them in.
- Impeaching a Presidentis not a message that will
resonate beyond the base of the party.
We need to have a message that resonates
beyond the base, to themiddle, to independents
and others who will make the difference
in this election cycle.
- [Jenna] And recent pollingseems to back up this approach.
According to hill.tv andHarris-X American Barometer
64% of Democrat voterssay they would not vote
for a socialist candidate.
Moderate Democrat Matt Bennett agrees.
He and his team, a third way, just hosted
Opportunity 2020, bringingtogether middle of the road
Democrats to voice their concerns.
They disagree with Senator Bernie Sanders'
view on the economy.
- Guaranteeing a federal jobto everyone in the workforce
is not a good idea.
That might've been a good idea in 1932,
when we had 28% unemployment
in the height of the Great Depression,
but it's not a particularly good idea now
when we have 3.8% unemployment.
- [Jenna] And when itcomes to abolishing ICE.
- Reuniting families wethink should be the focus
for the Democratic attack on
the Trump administration and immigration.
- [Jenna] The one thingnearly all Democrats agree on
is their dislike of President Trump.
- Without a doubt, there has never been
a unifier like Trump.
- [Jenna] Bennet's messageheading into November
is to win and wait.
- We can have these debates about
exactly which directionthe party oughta move
after November when we startto kinda round the bend
towards 2020 and we choose a nominee.
And ultimately, we're gonnahave a leader for our party
that nominee, who'sgonna make those choices.
But for now, our messageis, focus on winning.
And set aside the thingsthat're tremendously divisive.
- That's important becausepolls show GOP voters
agree on one thing.
Their support for President Trump.
And if that translates intoa big Republican turnout
this fall, it could spelltrouble for the Democrats.
In Washington, Jenna Browder, CBN News.
- Pat, do you agree with that?
- Well I certainly do,
I think the Democrats are courting suicide
if they proceed.
Y'know we have Nicaragua as an example
of what happens whena socialist government
takes over and destroysa company, a country.
They are destroying,Nicaragua is absolutely
being destroyed by thisgroup of socialists.
And Bernie Sanders wantsa guaranteed income
for everybody, it's absurd.
You can't do that.
Guaranteed healthcare for everybody.
We can't afford that,you'd bankrupt the country.
And that bankruptcy meansthat there'll be poverty
all over this land ifit's put into effect.
Socialism does not work.
Free enterprise is the growth engine
and it must be maintained.
And these people you're talking about
you gonna have openborders and let everybody
who wants to come into this country.
And then have healthcare and health,
have guaranteed incomes,
that's what they want.
The people don't want that.
They don't want thiscountry to be flooded by
people from every country on earth.
Especially the radicalMuslims who want to come in
and destroy our nation.
And that's what they're advocating.
And it's not a winning election theme.
And the idea of impeaching the President,
it's absurd I had a leadingexpert yesterday on this program
talking about why youcan't impeach a President.
It's just too hard.
And it's a failed thing,they tried to impeach Clinton
and they couldn't getit through the Senate.
So you bring articles ofimpeachment in the House
and maybe they vote 'em.
But the Senate has got togo two thirds to ratify
impeachment and it just won't happen.
It's not gonna happen, sowhy would they yak about
either we gotta impeach the President?
That's not a political program to run
to the American people on.
The people like Trump, he's got a,
at least right now gota 50% approval rating,
so that's half thepeople think he's great.
So, why would any partydoesn't have a death wish
keep going with that's what they want?
And if the pied piperBernie Sanders will let
if he wants to lead them off the cliff,
that's their business.
- Thanks, Pat.
A sign of the times insouthern California.
A real estate company hasforced Evangelist Greg Laurie
to remove billboardsadvertising his crusade.
Pictures of Laurieholding a Bible reportedly
created the backlash.
The company decided to take action.
The company says the religious imagery
of the Bible provokedmultiple complaints including
what it called a serious threat.
So Harvest Evangelismsubmitted a new version,
but the company decided totake them down completely
after the complaints.
Harvest spokesman says, theydon't blame the company,
they blame the culture.
- [John] It's sad that our culture is
we're at this degree of intolerance.
There's such intolerance against
the message of Christianitythat we aren't allowed to
state that, or to publiclyadvertise this event
that is going to occur.
- Billboards or not theHarvest crusade will take place
August 17th through the19th at Angel Stadium
in Anaheim, California.
Well this type ofcensorship is also spreading
across the digital world, where Christians
and conservative messagesare being targeted.
One weapon even carriesthe sinister sounding term
called, shadow banning.
As Caitlin Burke reports,one of the latest victims
is a church.
- [Caitlin] Pastor James McDonald admits,
he wasn't a big fan ofDonald Trump the candidate.
Mainly skeptical of policy promises,
and concerned over his moral history.
But now McDonald says he's been impressed
with President Trump.
Recently on Facebook theHarvest Church Pastor
asked his viewers to pray forand support President Trump.
As he considered his secondsupreme court nominee.
That's when something suspicious happened.
McDonald's podcast Walk In The Word,
a favorite on iTunes,vanished from the charts.
The podcast which had neverdipped below the top 40
wasn't even making the top 200.
- The only thing wecould really conclude was
it was within 24 hours of us posting
about praying for Donald Trump
and the new supreme court election.
- [Caitlin] Walk In TheWord suspects it's become
part of a growing numberof prominent conservative
and Christian groups shadowbanned by tech giants
like Facebook, Twitter, and now Apple.
That means the user and theircontent have been blocked
by an online community,without their knowledge.
- Not surprising I meanlook at what Facebook stock
is, I mean they've takena nose dive this week.
Twitter losing significantly as well.
People are tired of thisleft wing initiative effort
to silence conservatives.
And I think that's why yousee more and more people
coming to more and moreEvangelicals in particular,
coming to CBN and otheroutlets that they can trust
who know they're gonna tell 'em the truth.
- [Caitlin] Twitter hasbeen accused of limiting
the visibility of prominentRepublicans in search results.
The company responded with a blog post,
saying, it does not shadow ban.
However, Twitter did seem toadmit that it makes certain
users posts harder to find.
Walk In The Word says, itcan't come up with any other
explanation for the suddendrop from iTunes charts.
- We haven't gotten anythingmore than really a form
We want to believe thebest, but at this point
we can't seem to cometo any other conclusion
than something is eithertechnically going wrong
or there's censorship going on here,
because of the correlation with that post.
And all of the metrics thatwe have that show that we
should still be rankingin the top 20 to 50.
- [Caitlin] The ministry's legal counsel,
the National Center for Life and Liberty,
sent a formal letter to Apple
inquiring about the disappearance
and requesting an explanation.
CBN News has also reachedout to the tech giant
and so far, no response to either request.
Caitlin Burke, CBN News.
- Thanks, Caitlin.
Pat, this is really seriously concerning.
- Well those big tech companiesare so enormously powerful.
Amazon is unbelievable,it's like this giant
that has just gobbling up everything.
I just heard about the possibility of
the procurement by the federal government.
They want to put some of it through Apple.
And I think, you gonna put the procurement
of the entire governmentin the hands of this giant.
And with the fact that Bezosowns the Washington Post
and they're the enemy, they'reabsolute enemies of Trump.
You just wonder and youknow Apple is so big
it's the first company that'sgone over a trillion dollars
in market value.
And there are several big companies
and they are really huge
that are dominatingthe markets these days.
And to see them beingswayed by this shadow
of I don't know exactly what it is that
going silently to shut upthe voices of conservatives
we can't have that going on.
I read something today about China.
They've banned Winnie the Pooh.
- Wow, he is threatening.- Because they said
the bear looks like President G.
They're banning Winnie the Pooh.
Well, you never cantell what's gonna happen
but if these companies hear a phrase
and all of a sudden they limit the space
this is an outrageous invasion of privacy.
And now you say the firstamendment (mumbles) the government
it does, but nevertheless,
these companies are sobig they almost take on
the role of governmentbecause they are so huge.
And if they continue thatthey've got to be reigned in
and I hate to even considersomething like that.
They oughta police themselves, we hope so.
- Well coming up, we're gonnatake you to a summer camp
that's 200 years old.
- [Woman] We don't have apool, we don't have internet,
they can't play their games.
- [Terry] What keeps camperscoming back to Hollow Rock,
find out after this.
- Well welcome back, it'strue, Washington 700 Club
we're so glad you're with us.
We've got some good thingscomin' up by the way.
And right now I'm gonna takeyou to the past of America.
During America's earlydays frontier settlers
were so spread out thatpreachers were called
circuit riders, theyrode from home to home
preaching the gospel.
And Paul Strand shows how that led to
the only Bible camp in America
that's still meeting 200 years later.
- [Paul] Those circuit riders lit a fire
that became America'ssecond great awakening.
Christians camped outby the thousands to hear
these traveling Evangelists.
In 1818, seekers andthe saved began to meet
in an Ohio valley by acreek known as Hollow Rock.
So imagine these summercamp meetings at Hollow Rock
have been going on for 200 solid years,
without a break.
And it was a lot harderto get here in the 1800s.
Back then the road ran rightalong the Hollow Rock run
and you had to ford it seven times
to get to the campground.
Sheron Brookes Woodruff
has been coming here 75 years
and her ancestors long before that.
- My grandmother actuallycame in a horse and buggy.
- [Paul] Same for LynnCampbell's ancestors.
- My grandmothers grandparents came here
and generation after generation.
- [Paul] Traveling EvangelistsLane Loman's father
preached here 15 different years
and Lane is drawn back over and over.
- And what the secret is,
they hand it down to the next generation.
- [Paul] Mel Truex haspresided over the camp
- This will be the eighthor ninth generation
of families that have madethis place what it is.
- [Paul] At three tabernacles,half a dozen services,
bring the faithful togetherto worship and hear the word
♪ The spirit is glory ♪
And at 1:15 p.m. without fail.
The camp bell rings out and everyone stops
what they're doing topray for several minutes.
Many have met Jesus Christ here.
Many have let him heal their broken lives.
Truex remembers the conversion of one man
whose marriage had fallen apart.
- And he said oh my,
he said there's my wife.
That I've separated from.
And she found Jesus, too.
And they met together and in a few months
- [Paul] Prayer circles often break out
to take needs to the lord.
- You can share things and you know that
when people say I'm praying for you,
they are praying for you.
- [Paul] Kids and teens love coming,
even if they're cut off fromtheir usual online life.
- We don't have a pool,we don't have internet,
they can't play their games,
we're so concentratedon seeking god's will.
And that his holy spiritwill just permeate this
place in such a way that we do feel like
we're on holy ground.
- [Paul] Campbell remembers as a kid
she could hardly wait toget back to Hollow Rock.
- I packed a week beforecamp, I was ready to come.
- [Paul] One lifelongcamp goer said he offered
his kids Disney World orHollow Rock one summer.
They all shouted, Hollow Rock!
- I see a hunger, a new hunger.
Especially in young people.
For something that'sgoing to take them beyond.
Just going to church,just being a nice person,
but wanting to be holy andwanna be right with god.
- [Paul] All agree it's the camps 200 year
emphasis on holinessthat is at the heart of
Hollow Rock's success.
- God said be holy, for I am holy.
So we receive freedomfrom the power of sin.
That's what we get
in that beautifulrelationship that's untainted
by any essence of sin in our lives.
- It's just totally died out itself
and things that would distract from
having that relationship with him.
- [Man] We can actuallylive, choose to live above
willful sin and that's freedom.
- When you find thatrelationship you realize,
his ways are best, why would I try to tell
an awesome god how he ought to do it?
Even though sometimes we do.
- Develop a hunger for god,
there's no end to what god can be.
- [Paul] Those at HollowRock do seek to change
the world for Christ.
In the meantime, they're happy to bask
in what's right here.
- There's just something about this place,
you walk on the campus,I mean you just have that
that peace, that calming,god's presence is here.
- [Paul] Evangelist John Brassure so loved
Hollow Rock, he preachedhere again and again.
Across half a century.
When he was near death andcould no longer come here
physically, he sent aletter to the Hollow Rock
congregation writing,tell the trees, the hills,
the rambling little creek,the bubbling springs,
that the old preacherloves them very much.
They are like music in my memory.
So now an American memory that stretches
a solid 200 years.
Paul Strand, CBN News, reporting from
the Hollow Rock camp, in Ohio.
- Little piece ofhistory that you probably
didn't know about,that's wonderful, Terry.
- That is wonderful.
Nice to know you can getalong without technology
for a while, right?
- Very refreshing thing.- Refreshing.
- Very refreshing.- Yes.
Well up next, a husbandhears from his wife's doctor
that she's suffering from severe dementia.
- She'll do nothing but get worse,
another professional said,
the best thing you can dois pray she dies quickly.
- [Terry] Watch what happens when this man
does the opposite and praysfor a miracle instead.

and we'll have maybe a coupledays where we can answer
your questions about this whole matter,

weight loss, for example,congenital diseases,
Parkinson's, high bloodpressure, you go down the list
Well they've got all thesepathologies that people have
that you see advertised,well you get this medication

Sheila Lou sent an online comment
about this and said, have aloved one goin' through chemo
right now and we are really fightin' to
keep the gut healthy.
I have been tuned in allthis week to the show.
Great eye-openin' info.
God knew I needed this.
You know if you are someonestruggling with health,
you are glad to receive some information.
- Well the thing that welearned is that all these
antibiotics kill this gutand leave you vulnerable
to all kinds of pathologies.
And you can rebuild it butit's gonna take some time
and effort to get it rebuilt.
But it'll keep you healthy and ward off
Parkinson's disease for example,
and some of the otherthings that children have,
they have so many autoimmune diseases
and it's all, a lot of it caused by this
malformation of these intestinal flora,
so it's very important.
All right, what do you got?
- Well when Peggy King firstbegan behaving strangely,
her husband was baffled.
As her behavior camemore and more bizarre,
he became alarmed alongwith his daughter and son.
But none of the family wasprepared for a diagnosis
of incurable brain disease.
- [Narrator] Dwayne andPeggy King had a full
and happy life.
Married since 1961, they'vespent most of their time
traveling and sharing the gospel.
As the founders of Deaf Missions.
But in early 2010, Dwaynenoticed that something
seemed off with Peggy.
- The terrible, terriblefaraway look in her eyes.
And the actions were just awful.
- He would tell me thatshe had some extreme
fits of rage, if she didn't get her way.
And that was not like my mom at all.
She's one of the sweetestladies on the planet.
- She just didn't have thesame kind of inhibitions
we just gradually becamemore and more concerned.
- [Narrator] Eventuallydoctors diagnosed Peggy
with FTD, fronto-temporal dementia.
An MRI revealed herfrontal lobe had shrunk
and there were holes throughout her brain.
- She'll do nothing but get worse,
another professional said,
the best thing you can dois pray she dies quickly.
- That friction between the two of them
during that time wasvery difficult for him.
- She would run away, she'd keep me awake,
I couldn't sleep.
Finally they put her in the memory ward.
Made her at home, best we could.
When we left. (crying)
When we left, and that door locked.
That was awful.
- I remember feelinglike I was losing my mom.
But then as my dad'sconcerns about her grew,
I remember feeling likeI was losing him too.
- [Narrator] With a prognosisfrom the medical community
of no hope of recovery,
Peggy's family reachedout to other relatives
and friends for prayer.
- Prayers for her healing,prayers of comfort
for my dad, prayers of comfort for us,
the number of people praying for her
because of the connections
that my parents have hadthrough their ministry,
through the years, and especiallywith social media today
word gets out.
Why would we not expect a miracle?
- I was praying, lord help me accept this,
and there was a day whenI remember distinctly
god you take this more than I can handle.
That very day is the same day that Peggy
in the memory ward, was giving up to god.
And from that moment on,she started to get better.
♪ When you kneel ♪
♪ To pray ♪
- [Narrator] Since that day,not only did Dwayne notice
a difference in Peggy'scognition, behavior,
and motor skills, so did the doctors.
So much so that byChristmas of that same year
the doctors and staff of the memory unit
agreed that Peggy was wellenough to be discharged
and sent home.
- And she did so well, she started to cook
and she can follow a recipe.
She could play the piano.
That terrible, faraway lookwas gone from her eyes.
Then, her doctor said, I havetreated hundreds of patients
and nobody ever got better.
This is a miracle.
- [Narrator] Though a CATscan shows Peggy still
has an abnormal brain,
her condition has never regressed
and she has never had toreturn to the memory unit.
Her family says they owe it all to god
and the power of prayer.
- And at first I thought,I was scared I'd go back.
But, it's just good andmaybe a little better
all the time.
That's more of a miraclethat god is letting me
function normally with an abnormal brain.
God is good and wonderful.
- I don't understand it all,
but I think it's very evident that through
men and women of faith andmen and women of prayer,
powerful things happen.
- We have had her back.
We have had her the matriarchof our family again.
How could we ever not thank god
that we get to have our mom cooking?
- We have so many friendsand so many prayers
and most of the people werepraying for her to be better.
To have her back is a great blessing.
A great, great blessing.
- Boy I just think of that scripture
that says the steadfast love of the lord
never ceases his mercies,never come to an end.
- That's right.
- Boy, new every morning,
this woman has beenrestored, renewed, refreshed.
- They never come back from that, Terry,
never, never, never, never.
And yet she's come back.
It's a miracle.
- I have a great encouraging word here,
this is Lauren who sentthis in via e-mail.
It says I listen to the 700 Club every day
and I received two messages of healing
The first was Pat who said,
someone who suffers from back pain,
it's like the nerve endings are on fire.
Well this blew me away.
I am a chiropractor,and I have been dealing
with this neurogenic inflammation along
my thoracic spine for a long time
and managing it as best I could.
I have not have thisproblem since listening
to your show.
The second one, I was listening to a story
about a lady who wastrying to get pregnant
and Terry said, you'rethinking I want that to be me.
I'm thrilled to acknowledge that god has
blessed me with a pregnancy.
- Well here's one other.
Deloris who lives in Wichita, Kansas
suffered from ankle painfor over three years.
Her doctor told her thatthere was nothing to be done
for her condition.
Then last month, July the 24th,
she watched this program,prayed with Terry,
and you said, someone with an ankle issue,
joints that have been so stiff and so sore
and immobile, it's like godis lubricating your joints.
As Deloris prayed, shelaid her hand on her ankle
and guess what?
- [Terry] Wow.
- Pain left.
Deloris is healed.
All right folks, we oughta pray.
Terry and I gonna gettogether, we gonna believe god
I want you to pray withus, wherever you are.
Nothing's impossible with god we serve.
Father.- Thank you.
- I pray with my sister in Christ,
and we believe togethernothing is impossible
There's a neck pain, ohit hurts so bad right now,
your neck, just turn your head it'll pop.
Put your hand on your neck,the lord has just healed you.
Charlie, take it in Jesus name.
- There's someone else, you have,
this is so, I dunno what this is,
a subcutaneous infection.
And it is both painfuland itchy, it spreads.
Across the top of yourskin, the evidence of it,
nothing has seemed to stop it
but today is your day, Jesusis healing you right now.
Just receive that.
- You've got diabetic sores on your leg
and god is healing thediabetes and those sores
are gonna be healed, placeyour hand on your leg
in the name of Jesus.
Receive and answer.
Terry, one more.
- Yes, someone else you'vehad mental confusion
and you've seen this story today.
It's been so encouragingtoo, you have great fear
that you have been losingcognizance about things
and god is just touching.
All that imbalance chemicallyis coming back into place.
And you are going to think clearly
and you'll not have thatoccur again in Jesus name.
- For everybody watching this program

may you experience hisblessing in your life.

And you can always getthe latest from CBN News

Pat and Terry will be back with more
of today's 700 Club, right after this.
- Well you've heard aboutthe art of the deal,
now you're going to hearabout the art of execution
from a man who knowsall about it first hand.
- [Narrator] Five yearsago, Bishop Joseph Walker
started using out of the box strategies
like digital media to helphis congregation grow.
Today he's known as thesocial media pastor,
with 33,000 church membersand more than 200,000
people watching him online.
One third of his church's support
comes from these digital disciples.
In his book No Opportunity Wasted,
Bishop Walker shares howhe's taking advantage of
- Now is the time you've got to embrace
- [Narrator] And why timing is everything
in what he calls, the season of now.
- Please welcome to the 700 Club
the author of No Opportunity Wasted,
Bishop Joseph Walker, it'swonderful to have you here.
- It's an honor to be here today.
- Boy, I read a lot ofbooks in my position here
and I have to tell youthat I kept thinking
I was here's the nugget andthen I would read another
sentence and say, no, no,no, this is the nugget.
I mean it was so rich with wise,
just wise counsel for everybody,
but you talk about the art of execution.
That's the subtitle of your book.
What do you mean by that?
- Well you know, many people have visions
and often those visionsremain in the theoretical
realm and people don'treally have a strategy
to move them into a practical realm,
so often people aresitting on these incredible
million dollar ideas, orthings that can really change
and shift culture.
And so the book is about understand
there's a specific timethat vision manifests
and there's a strategy that's necessary
in order to move it fromtheory into practice.
And so I give strategies to help people
kinda get going.
- You know what's so excitingto me about this Bishop
was I often say and I'vebeen incorrect in saying
I guess that, if you aresomebody who is living
walking out your purpose, you're blessed.
I mean to have found that,because so many people
don't like their jobs,
don't like where they're going in life,
and you say in here thateverybody has purpose.
So it's not just a magicthing if you happen to find
the right one, you gotta find yours.
- You do.
And open the book up, talking about that,
you're born to solve a problem.
And god allows us to somewonderful opportunities
to have life, to occupy this space,
to fulfill a purpose, for his glory.
And if each person walks in that purpose,
understands that beforeyou were even born,
like Jeremiah, beforeI was born, I knew you,
if you walk in that purpose,in full manifestation
I believe you could turnthe world upside down.
The reason why there's somany ills in our community
because people do notunderstand their own purpose.
I mean why is it so hard to find that?
- We haven't been ableto reconcile opportunity
See we see opportunitiesand we think, wow,
that must be it.
And we chase opportunityand chase opportunity
but when you walk in purpose,opportunities chase you.
- Yeah, you know youtalk about your own story
in your book as well, whichis so fascinating to me
because becoming a pastorwas not on your docket
of things to do.
- Was not, was not.
- You wanted to be a lawyer.
- I was, I was so passionateabout being an attorney
come from a family of lawyers.
- [Terry] So that was your opportunity.
- It was my opportunity and I was certain
and I often thought that this was what god
wanted me to do.
Until god spoke to me in the quiet space
and said, no son, you'regoing in this direction.
And whenever you have a purpose,
the next thing you do, you prepare for it.
Because you don't prepare for purpose
you won't be positioned to manifest it.
So I talk about that.
And the passion thatgod has us in one area,
the passion we may feel at an opportunity
god'll take it and he'll shift it
and use it for something for his glory.
I might've been a good attorney,
but it would have notbeen for the glory of god.
Today what I do is all for god's glory
and I give him praise for it.
- You know if some of you are searching
for your purpose in life Ireally recommend this book,
but I wanna move fromopportunity and purpose
to how you took advantage of social media
to expand what you weredoing with the purpose
god had called you to.
Talk about that and how itmade such a huge difference.
- A few years ago we justrealized the church itself
was changing and oftenpeople have to realize
it's not about the brickand mortar anymore.
There are a lot offolks who have to engage
(mumbles) internet, right?
God must not be worshiped in temples,
made with man's hands.
Once we realize that ministry takes place
outside the four walls of the church,
we're able to on board and engage people
in a variety of ways,
through social media, andof course our partnership
with Facebook, we've been able to really
create community and makethis large church smaller
and you're able to reallyidentify where people are
engage creative minds andstay innovative and relevant.
- [Terry] So what kind ofresults have you had from that?
- Oh, my goodness.
It's been really over the top.
I mean we've seen so manyfolks who've been able to
actually say, you know what,
I may not feel comfortablegoing to the physical church
for a variety of reasons,
but you're my pastor,you're my virtual pastor,
I listen to you every week,
or people who are havingstories of healing
and transformation andthey come in the little
small communities and they areable to talk to other folks
who have the same storyand same testimony,
they draw strength from those stories.
And those things may nothappen in the larger setting
but they happen in that virtual space.
- So what's a digital disciple?
- A digital disciple, right,that's a very good question.
A digital disciple's a person who really
you have actually engagedthrough social media
through the internet space
and you actually walk themthrough a series of principles
in order to allow them tocome into a relationship
With a digital discipleit's a little different.
You can actually belongbefore you can believe.
And often in churches youhave to believe, then belong.
But for us it's about, werecognize you may be in a
interesting place in your life,
we want you to connect,feel us out, no pressure.
And then you find outthese folks are incredibly
- And wanna be connected with them.
- I wanna be connected,
so we have this thing,
if you actually commit,if you connect you commit,
if you commit you change.
- You know you seizedopportunity when you saw it,
and used it to advancethe purpose that god had
called you to, would youtalk about three keys
to doing that?
Just quickly, we're closing out time here,
but quickly tell me about those keys.
- Well, the book is loaded with keys.
I think what's importantis making certain that
you really identify what your purpose is,
stay in your lane, understand who you are,
what god has called you to do.
Secondly, make sure you havethe right people around you
collaboration is very important,
ministry can not take place in silo.
You have to, it is not supposed to,
you have to make sure thatyou're constantly doing that.
And thirdly you have to be mindful I think
of making certain you don't experience
what I call the burnout.
Because you can't boil the ocean,
you have to make certain you're effective
and I think having theright people around you
voids that, allows you tocontinue to move forward.
- Staying connected to theone who makes it all happen.
- That's it, every day, yeah.
- It's such a good book,
Bishop Walker's book iscalled No Opportunity Wasted.
The Art of Execution,it's available wherever
books are sold, I highly recommend it.
You can also hear more from Bishop Walker
in our social exclusiveinterview on Facebook.
If you'd like to watch that,
just go to Facebook.com/700Club.
Wonderful to have you with us, thank you.
- Thank you for having me,
honored to be here.- Great to meet you.
- Thank you.
- Well still ahead, we've got your e-mail.
Mary says my son recently hada very serious staph infection
and he needed to be onantibiotics for two months.
How can he restore thedamage that has been done
to his gut?
Well Pat'll have an answer to that,
I know that, it's coming up.
Well it's time for your e-mail questions,
and Pat this first one comes from Mary,
who says, I've been watchingthe series on gut bacteria.
My son recently had a veryserious staph infection
and he needed to be onantibiotics through a PICC line
three times a day, for two months.
How can he restore thedamage that's been done
to his gut from this much antibiotic?
- Well what you do, Ithink you've gotta find
some of those that are alive,
they're in refrigerators,in health food stores,
maybe at the garden oflife or somebody like that,
but I think you can goto health food store
and ask for the probiotics that're in
the live bacteria, so start taking them
in large quantities.
And then they need feeding
and what that's called is prebiotics,
so you need to eat fiber and stuff like
whole grain oatmeal would be good
like yogurt would be good,
like kimchi would be good.
- Kombucha, and some of talked about that.
- All of that.
Any of those things, but primarily fiber
and the prebiotics youcan buy prebiotics, too
from various companies
and they essentially are fiber,
you need to feed thosebacteria with the prebiotics
and it'll take a while.
But whatever you do, do noteat or drink diet sodas,
or take sweet 'n low, or anyof those other diet things.
Do not do that, Steviais the only sweetener
that I know of's any good.
But don't do the others'cause they'll hurt the guts,
so, and please don'tget any more antibiotics
if you can help it.
- Yeah, well when you've gota serious staph infection
he probably didn't have anoption, but good advice.
- The pre, the pro will getyou where you need to be,
but the pre is necessary to feed the pros.
The gut bacteria needfiber and stuff to survive.
- Okay, this is Brian who says Pat,
last week you spoke aboutour relationship with god
as being a partnership,and we must do our part.
That made sense to me and Iwas inspired by those words.
Yet, how do we know when toleave things to god's plan
and when to do what wefeel compelled to do
by the holy spirit?
Do we just leave hard things to god?
Or do we strive to dowhat we think is best
How do I reconcile this?
- Well, the bible says, as manyas led by the spirit of god
they are the sons of god.
And I think the biblewill say again, again,
you'll hear a voice in yourear when you turn to the right
or the left saying this is the way.
So you need to listen to the lord
and then follow what his leading is.
But at the same time, knowthat you're trusting him
And as Moody said, Iwork, it all depends on me
and I pray like it all depends on god.
So you pray and you believe god,
but at the same time, youdo what you feel is right
and the holy spirit willlead you step by step by step
as you pray and listen to him.
- Kay, this is Jessica, who says,
I have a difficult timeunderstanding what Isaiah 26:3 means
you will keep in perfectpeace all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you.
What is it referring to?
- Well, where are your thoughts?
Are your thoughts on your troubles?
Your thoughts on your marriage?
Your thoughts on your social relations?
Thoughts on your image?
Your thoughts on what peopleare thinking about you?
Are you thinking about god?
They'll keep you in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you.
Your thought is, I have one audience,
I have one audience,
I'm walking across the stage
the stage and every man's a player
but the stage that you're on,
you are for one audience
and that audience is god.
And what you're doing isto say I wanna please him
in what I do and think and stay.
And with that, you will havepeace of mind and heart.
- Okay, this is Scott who says,
dear Pat, I have the opportunityto work at a nearby casino
as a card dealer.
It's good pay, with excellent benefits.
I am almost 59 and havebeen a professional driver
most of my life.
But my poor eyesight will not allow me
to do this work anymore.
Would it be immoral or unethical for me to
do this kind of work?
- You like a little joke,
when I was running for president
I won Las Vegas.
And I won Nevada.
And so some of my delegates,one was a pit boss
in the casino. (laughing)
And I welcomed them very much.
I don't know, again, it's whatdo you feel in your heart?
If you feel it's sin then don't do it.
If you are not concernedabout the fact that people
are gambling and you'reessentially dealing the cards,
that's your call.
But I don't think I needto sit here and tell you
don't do it, or do it.
It's up, what is theholy spirit speak to you?
Then follow the leading of your own heart.
God will show you what to do.
Well today's power minute is from Psalms.
Blessed is the man who fears the lord,
who delights greatly in his commandments.
And tomorrow listen to this.
She was the love childof two married people
and she begins having sexwhen she was 12 years old.
