just a big hoax?
FOX News author and analystGregg Jarrett exposes
the deep state plot that'stargeting President Trump.
Plus a boys appendix bursts.
- This feels more seriousthan what I thought it was.
- [Host] And that was only the beginning.
- We're watching ourson fight for his life.
- [Host] Parents and doctorsrally to save a child.
- It's what you hear butit's also the unsaid.
- [Host] On today's 700 Club.
- Well, welcome folks.
We had a crew down inFlorida for hurricane Andrew
which also had a tornadoalong with the hurricane.
We were also down in Charlestonafter Hugo devastation.
I remember we were setup on the main street
of the downtown of Charleston
and next to us was agreat big ball of metal.
Just like you'd take a pieceof paper and crush it up.
It was the roof of one ofthe commercial buildings
that had been torn down by Hugo,
so, if one of those thinghits it can be very strong.
Florence is coming at us andit looks like it's intensified
to a category four but it'saiming now for North Carolina
and the predictions aredire, 140 mile an hour winds,
20 foot storm surge and soaking rain
but I'm praying and we'vebeen talking about later.
I just believe God isgonna spare this area and
I want everybody to pray and pray for
North and South Carolina as well
because they say one of these things,
a category four hits theland becomes uninhabitable,
so, it's a serious matterthat we're dealing with and
the Governor Harry McMaster down there at
South Carolina has ordered an evacuation,
has closed the roads going in,
all the roads are open going out
from the coast, North Carolina equally
emergency and the government of Virginia
has declared a state of emergency
and ordered an evacuation ofthose people near the coast
so, we'll see but we'll talk about
a prayer meeting we had yesterday
later on in this program.
- Well, North and SouthCarolina are bracing
for the worst with morethan one million people
on the move to escape that coming storm.
Caitlin Burke has the story.
- Forecasters are clear.
Hurricane Florence israpidly getting stronger.
It will likely hit the east coast
as a category four possibly five hurricane
and it's impact is expectedto be life threatening.
- We still believe it'sgoing in at Cape Fear
or around Cape Fearplus or minus 50 miles.
Most hideous aspect ofthis may be the track
is hitting perpendicular.
This is not an arching storm.
This is coming right in at 90 degrees
and those are the worst storms
as far as keeping near intensity.
- We do know that we're in the bullseye.
North Carolina is takinghurricane Florence seriously
and you should too.
Get ready now.
- [Caitlin] Governor's inNorth Carolina, South Carolina
and Virginia have alreadyissued evacuation orders
for those closest to the coast.
The most sweeping orderscoming from South Carolina
where the entire coastline was given
until noon on Tuesday to leave.
More than one million people on the move.
- It's gonna be inconvenient but
we do not want to riskone South Carolina life
in this hurricane.
- Here in Virginia Beach local stores
are already selling out of basic supplies.
If you are not planning to evacuate
here are some of the mostimportant items to have on hand.
Eight bottles of water likethis per person per day,
at least three days offood that won't spoil,
batteries, a battery poweredradio, and a flashlight.
Besides the power of this storm
the other major concern is its speed.
- This is gonna crawl west north westward.
It will hit very late Thursday night
and Saturday night only be near Charlotte
and Sunday night and Mondaynight may only be near Asheville
and that means it's gonna rain itself out
and every river I thinkfrom the Savannah River
which is on the SouthCarolina Georgia boarder
all the way up to all therivers in North Carolina
could break record flood stages
when this is all said anddone from the amount of rain
that is gonna occur with this.
- [Caitlin] Monday night president Trump
tweeted about the stormasking those along the coast
to be careful and promising the support
of the federal government.
Caitlin Burke, CBN news.
- Well, it's one of thosethings you just pray.

Very practical information on here
and something that youcan still have time to do,
so, get ahold of it.
You know the stores, the food has,
has been depleted.- They really have.
I mean, people are just buying like crazy.
A lady came and saidthere are no more bananas.
I said what do you meanthere's no more bananas,
well, the stores are out of bananas,
well, we don't really need bananas anyhow
but I mean it's just kind of like
they've got water, they'vegot everything they just-
- They're replenishing thestores now I understand but
yesterday the water was gone.
- I remember in one ofthose stores that we had
the power went out and of course
the frozen or the meatarea of the grocery stores
like power and so, itwas one of those things
I didn't have much money andI was looking for bargains
and man, they were selling wonderful meat
for pennies on the dollar and it was-
- Filet day.(laughter)
- Instead of soy beans I couldget some really good steaks,
so, as they say weatherbrings nobody any good.
There was something good out of it.
Well, a more serious note
17 years ago we were on thisprogram and we were watching
a beautiful Tuesday morningterrorists struck America
in New York and Washington
at the Pentagon and the siteof the world trade center
victims gather to remember the loss.
President Trump is attending a service
in Shanksville Pennsylvania at a memorial
for the victims of flight 93.
That attack kicked off a war
that regrettably we'restill fighting today.
George Thomas has more.
- Since that fatalSeptember morning in 2001
Islamic Jihadists havelaunched more than 33000
deadly terror attacks.
- The movements and ideologies
that drove and justified that attack
and the thousands ofother attacks you name,
that still remains verydynamic, very vibrant.
- [George] And these terrorgroups have hit targets
nearly everywhere aroundthe world since 9.11
from Iraq and Afghanistanto Finland and California.
Experts say Islamic fighters have shown
that they are far from exhausted,
discouraged or under funded.
- They still seem very prepared to fight.
Not ready for a diplomatic process.
- Isis, an off shoot of Al-Qaeda
born in the dessertsands of Iraq and Syria
is much weaker but by nomeans out of the fight.
The group has carried out more than
150 attacks in 29 countrieskilling thousands.
It's affiliates or supporters
are now spread around the world
including here in the homeland
where the FBI's directortold congressional officials
this summer that his bureau was tracking
an alarming number of cases.
- We have about a thousandinvestigations into
exactly the kind ofpeople you're describing
covering all 50 states.
- [George] Despite the deathof it's leader Osama bin Laden
in May 2011 Al-Qaeda whichjust had a few hundred fighters
on 9.11 now has between 10000 and 20000
battle hardened fighters in Syria,
4000 are operating inLibya and another 9000
are in Somalia, hundredsmore are scattered
across North Africa and South East Asia
and according to western intelligence
there are about 50000Jihads living in Europe.
Including recent combatantswho have returned home
after fighting alongside Isis, Al-Qaeda
and other terror groups in Syria and Iraq.
- They are faith driven.
They have an ideology thatis derived from a theology.
- [George] Seventeen years on
despite trillions of dollars spent
and countless American lives lost
the threat from radicalIslam is more widespread
than ever before.
May says the world shouldprepare for a long war
against an enemy that isn't backing down
and believes time is on its side.
- We don't know how longthis war is gonna last.
Our enemies don't carehow long it's gonna last.
If we are not prepared for such a war
than we will for sure loose such a war.
- George Thomas CBN news.
- You know the Quran has two spheres
and one is called Dar Al-Harb
and the other's called Dar Al-Islam.
The word Dar Al-Harbmeans the world of war.
Dar Al-Islam means that part
that is under the submission of Islam.
Now, that's the fundamentalteaching of the Quran.
In other words we're at war constantly
because of the teachings of Mohammad.
Remember they tried to sell us on the
theory that Islam was a religionof peace, that's baloney.
It was no such thing.
Islam does not mean peaceit means submission.
it's what the word means,not peace but submission.
There's got a word it's called Salam
but Islam does not mean peace.
Salam means peace, Islam means submission
and there's either the world of war
or the war of Islam accordingto fundamental muslim teaching
the rest of the world is at war with Islam
and so, what is being donewith Al-Qaeda is not a outlier
it is right at the coreof Islamic teaching.
Now, there are many people who they say
well, they're muslims,they're peace loving
and all that and I'm sure that'strue but the core teaching
put out by the so called prophet Mohammad
is that you must struggle and fight
and Jihad is struggle,it's not an inner struggle
it's the struggle toovercome this so called enemy
and what Cliff May wassaying in that piece
and others have said, if we just recognize
this is a long term struggle.
They want to take over the world.
It is based on global domination.
They do not wish to live at peace,
they wish to live
as the superior being and everyone else
is going to be either converted,dead or a so called demi
as a subject to Islamic authority.
That's the regime and it'shorrible to contemplate
that we've got to go through 9.11
over and over and over againand thousands of people
as George Thomas pointed out,
thousands of places whereit's not just Al-Qaeda,
it's not just Osama bin Laden,it's the whole bunch of them,
Terry.- Well, coming up
the real story about Russianinfluence in the 2016 election.
Fox news Gregg Jarrettexposes the Russia Hoax
- It's just amazing ladies and gentlemen
what is called the mainstreammedia, whatever that is
I've (mumbled speaking)believe that we're mainstream
and they are not but the left wing,
whatever the media, NewYork Times, Washington Post,
most of NBC, CBS and CNN, these others.
They just can't accept the idea
that America didn't votefor Hillary Clinton.
They just can't believethat a guy named Trump
who came out of nowhere, he was
a real estate developer and
he had been on a showcalled the apprentice,
it was rather popular.
They couldn't believe that a guy like that
could possibly be the president.
It had to be Hilary, so,they have come up with a
theory, he didn't winon account of the fact
the people voted for him,
he came to power becauseof Russian collusion
and there was collusion with the Russians
in his campaign and that'swhat got him to win.
Well, there's a new book out and it showed
that not only is Russian collusion a hoax,
the real story is how officialsof the justice department
tried to keep DonaldTrump from being elected,
it's a shocking tale.
- [Narrator] What's the realstory about Russian influence
in the 2016 election.
It's not what has been widely reported.
The Russia Hoax by fox newslegal analyst Gregg Jarrett
reveals how persons within the FBI
and Barrack Obama's justice department
abused their positions of power
to subvert our system of government
and undermine the democratic process
to help elect Hilary Clintonand defeat Donal Trump.
Those same people appear to have pursued
a contrived investigationof President Trump
in an attempt to undo the election results
and remove him as president.
- Well author and journalist Gregg Jarrett
is joining us now from New York.
Gregg it's a terrific book,it's called the Russian Hoax.
How come you wrote this book?
What got you going on it?
- Well, I'm a lawyer by trade
but I have been ajournalist for three decades
and as I watched all of this unfold
I knew that there were people at the FBI
the rebarbative justice who were abusing
their positions of power totry to influence the election.
Not so much the Russiansbut our own government.
People like James Comey, Peter Struck,
Lisa Page at the FBI, Andrew McCabe and
Bruce Ohr the department of justice.
You know James Comey on the very day
that he wrongfully acleared Hillary Clinton
his FBI was meeting secretly in Europe
with the author of this fabricated dossier
and armed with that document the FBI
and the department of justice
tried to frame Donald Trumpfor so called collusion,
crimes he never committed.
- Well, let me ask you,
that dossier was written by a man
who has been discreditedbut he was on the payroll
of the FBI wasn't he?
- He was, he received 11 payments pad
and he was also on thepayroll of Hilary Clinton
and yet when they went to FISA judges
to spy on the Trump campaignthrough a wire tap warrant
they concealed that evidenceand deceived the judges
committing a fraud on the court
and that fraud went on for afull year and it also involved
the current Deputy AttorneyGeneral Rod Rosenstein
who signed off on thatfinal FISA renewal warrant
without the properevidence required by law.
- Well, there's so manythings in your book
that I want to bring up but
Comey apparently had ameeting with the President
taped some comments, went out
and then gave those comments to the press.
Comment on that, that apparently is the
violation of law isn't it?
- It is and I point out the various
violations of law andfelonies that James Comey
appears to have committed.
For example, he stolethose government documents.
Those presidential memos arenot his to keep and take away
from the Hoover building in Washington DC
and used for his own personal purposes.
That's a direct violation ofthe law and then he leaked it
to the media for the solepurpose of triggering
a special council to investigate
the man who had fired him Comey and
who gets picked as the special council?
Comey's long time friend,ally and partner Bob Muller
who should never have accepted the job
because of multiple conflicts of interest
as I write in the book.
- What relationship didComey have with Muller?
- Comey and Muller were longtime friends and partners
in fact it was a protegeementor relationship.
These two had handled cases in the past
and as I point out in the book,
the most notorious case wasthe anthrax case in which they
so badly bungled it itcost American tax payers
$6000000 in damages to anindividual they falsely accused
so, these guys go back decades together
along with Rod Rosensteinwho also should have
recused himself because he'sa key witness in the case
and yet he's Mueller boss.
You can't be a prosecutor anda witness all rolled in to one
so, all of this is acesspool of corruption
at the FBI, the Departmentof Justice as well
as the special council investigation.
- You pointed out very conjunctly
that in order to have aspecial council appointed
he has to be pursuing a crime.
They have to designate a crime.
Was there a crime designatedwhen Rod Rosentein
appointed him or setout the mandate for him?
- No, absolutely not, you're right Pat
there must first underthe law be a stated crime.
Look at the authorizationorder appointing Muller,
there's no crime stated there.
It says look in to linksbetween Trump and Russia
during the 2016 election,the so called collusion.
Collusion's not a crime foundanywhere in the criminal codes
except antitrust law and it's
no other relevant felony as well
including honest services fraud
or conspiracy to fraud the government.
So, this was always aninvestigation in search of a crime
and that is turning the law
and the federal regulations upside down.
It was an illegitimateinvestigation to begin with.
- Rosenstein just kind ofkept expanding the mandate
didn't he if what Mullerwas doing didn't fit the
mandate he expanded the mandate didn't he?
- He did and without authorization
and in violation ofthe federal regulations
and you know Rosenstein also issued
a secret authorization order,
but for the lawyers of the Manafort case
we still wouldn't even know about it.
That is also in violationof federal regulations
in the spirit of the law.
You know Rosensteinhas a lot to answer for
and one of the reasons why he has been
obstructing lawful subpoenas from congress
is because he has beeninvolved in this illicit scheme
and he has a motive to cover it up Pat.
- Well, let me see, they said that Trump
obstructed justice when he fired Comey.
He was legally authorizedto do just that wasn't he?
If he wanted to, he's president.
- He was.
Article two of the constitution gives him
complete and un-federated authority
to fire somebody who's the head of a
federal executive agencylike James Comey and
Robert Muller has no legal basis,
no legal right to question the President
about exercising hisconstitutional authority.
I think we know now that Muller
doesn't even wanna question the President
about obstruction of justice
because he knows thelaw does not support him
pursuing the president on that,
so, all he's got left is collusion
and there was neverany evidence that Trump
colluded with the Russiansto win the election.
- Gregg, you know the president,
whether the people like it or not,
has turned this economy around.
It is booming like wecan't remember in decades.
The unemployment rate is down to
the lowest level we could imagine,
everything, the GDP is up.
What is this business about impeaching?
What has President Trumpdone that would justify
some kind of impeachment, the democrat's
calling for impeachment?
- Absolutely nothing but remember
impeachment is not a legal process.
Yes, treason, high crimes, misdemeanor,
bribery and so forth but itreally is a political mechanism
that the founding fathersestablished in the constitution
and Jerry Ford probably said it best
back in the day when he was a congressman
before he became president and he said
impeachment is anythingcongress says it is
on any given day
but I think it's a terriblemistake for democrats
like Nancy Pelosi orMaxine Waters certainly
to be arguing for impeachmentbecause like it or not
the economy is doing great,peoples wages are up,
manufacturing's up, unemployment is down,
just look at the long listof consumer optimism and
people may disagree withDonald Trump's personality
or his approach or his tweets
but you can not object tohis performance on policy.
Especially the economy.
- Gregg, one last question.
When I read this book I get in my head
and I'm sure a lot of people do this,
there's gotta be some way ofcalling this justice department
to account, how can we do it?
- You need a new attorney general
and deputy attorney general and I'm
convinced that after the midterm elections
Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein
will be relieved oftheir duty and bring in
somebody else, somebody likecongressman John Radcliffe
the house traditionary committee
A strong legal background,former US attorney,
former top DOJ official.
This is a guy who would not only reopen
the Hilary Clinton emailcase as it should be
but I think he wouldpresent all of this evidence
of corruption by the FBI andthe department of justice
to a grand jury, so, an honest prosecutor,
an honest and legitimate attorney general
I think would present this to a grand jury
and I think if that happenedthere would be indictments.
- You think they have committed crimes,
there's no question about it right?
- I'm convinced they are and I lay out
a wide variety of crimesthat I believe were
committed by people at the FBI
and the department of justice.
Obstruction of justice, abuse of power,
perjury, the list goes on and on.
- Shocking ladies and gentlemen.
Gregg it's a terrific book,it's called the Russian Hoax
the illicit scheme to clear Hilary Clinton
and frame Donald Trump.
I hope you sell a lot of them.
Are they going well?
- Thank you, you know it'sbeen the number one book
on the New York Timesfor three weeks in a row.
My liberal friends have read it
and said you know what Greggyou've totally turned me around
and convinced me, so,I hope people read it.
- Well, it's a brilliant work
and I commend it to our readers.
Thank you very much for being with us.
- My pleasure Pat, thank you.- Terry.
- Unbelievable.- [Pat] Isn't it.
Can you believe that?- Just unbelievable.
Yeah, I mean-
- Larry Struck, LisaPage texting one another
how could we beat this guy
and all the way up-- [Terry] All the way up.
- Yeah, this guy Rosenstein,
I would have fired himbut a New York second
but apparently the President is waiting
but as Gregg points out
after the election I think theattorney generals got to go.
He has ill served the presidenthowever much you like him,
he's ill served the presidentby recusing himself.
He really left the president naked and
under the dominion if you willof domination of Rosenstein
who in turn brings Muller out and
to harass the presidentwith this illicit lawsuit.
The Russia Hoax, amazingbook, Gregg Jarrett.
Okay.- Well, up next
a ten year old loosingthe battle for his life
and his doctors run out of options.
- Doctor's saying that there'snothing else that we can do
and that is a very solemn reality.
- I think at that pointin time it really hit
that the thing that'sapparent at that moment
you really had to give it to God.
- [Terry] See how a miracle unfolds
through the power of prayer.
Well, yesterday we kickedoff 40 days of prayer
for America and for theindividual prayer requests
that many of you have sent to us.
CBN and Regent Universitystaff gathered together
in the Regent University chapel
where Pat led us in a powerful prayer
to turn the path of hurricane Florence
away from out coastlineand back out to sea.
Take a look.
- We're facing rightnow a killer hurricane,
it's called Florence.
They said if a categoryfour strikes the mainland
the land will be quote "uninhabitable."
Now, I don't believe Godwants Regent University or CBN
or this area that has been good to us
to be afflicted by a storm like that.
I want God himself to dowhat he did back in 1960
where he reached his handdown in to the Atlantic ocean
and told that hurricane youwill not go any further.
The Bible says where twoof you agree on Earth
as touching anything that they will ask
it'll be done for them by myfather which is in heaven.
Now, this is the same Jesus who commanded
the wind and the waves,he said peace be still.
Well, I'm going to ask you right now
put your hand out toward the Atlantic
and let's speak a word right now.
You hurricane Florence we speakto you in the name of Jesus
and we command the storm tocease it's forward motion
and go harmlessly in to the Atlantic.
Be out to sea.
Thank you, let's praise God.(applause)
Thank you Lord.
- Well, we also prayedfor your needs yesterday,
and you're invited to joinus every day this week
because we're praying for America.
All you need to do just log in to CBN.com
at noon eastern time.
You can join the live streamof our chapel service.
We have one happening every day.
In fact today's featured speaker
is best selling author Mark Rutland
who is also a guest comingup later on today's program.
- You know Terry I've sharedwith the staff what happened.
It was 1960, we hadn't gone on the air
and we had this little station,
it had a one story brick building
and inside was a one kilowatt transmitter.
We had about a 300 foot tower
and then on top of that was an antenna
and I knew if that greathurricane then was called Ester
hit it would destroy, the whole tower
would come down on top of building
which would put us out of business.
There wouldn't have been a CBN,
there wouldn't have beena Regent University,
there wouldn't have beenan operation blessing,
there wouldn't have been a world race,
there wouldn't have been all these
hundreds and millions of people saved.
That storm could havewiped us completely out.
Well, I was with the full gospelbusinessman, we were in the
top floor of a downtown hotel in Norfolk
and we had a full gospel breakfast
and at that breakfast I askedpeople to pray and we prayed
and we commanded thatthing to stop forward
and it was heading right for us
and like a big dumb beast,and I mean that was literally
it just stood there in the water
and it just churned around
and all of a sudden slowly, slowly, slowly
it turned around and went back down south
and this area was sparedand God has placed a,
like a shield of protectionaround us ever since,
so, this thing is coming at as
but we're gonna believe Godfor a shield of protection
and wherever you arefolks you need to pray
but if you're not in thepath of these hurricanes
you don't understand what it's like.
I mean they are horrible things.
I went down as I said to Andrew,
that was devastationlike you can't believe.
The church's torn up, the houses torn up,
rooftops torn up, it was awful.
Hugo, Carolina the pine trees
were just like somebody went through
with a saw and just cutdown thousands of trees
and the downtown of thearea was devastated,
so, this thing is serious business
but we're gonna believe Godand there's nothing impossible,
so, wherever you are you pray
and God is the one who I've seen him do it
over and over again.
Not just a few times, over and over again,
he has stilled the stormsthat have headed right at us
to destroy us and thatparticular storm in 1960
would have put us out of business
and we would not be heretoday because it would all
have been over if that thing had hit
and our tower had fallen and the building
would have been crushedand it would've happened.
God is good, now our next story
is an amazing answer to prayer.
Kelly and Jacob Bonnema
thought their son Boone was in the clear
after doctors removedhis ruptured appendix
but instead of improvingBoone's vital signs got worse
and after three separate surgeries
doctors still could not stopthe aggressive infection
that was stealing that poor child's life.
- We were out for dinner with some friends
and when we came homehe was not feeling well.
- [Narrator] The night of July 17 2010,
Jacob and Kelly Bonnematen year old son Boone
began having severe abdominal pain.
- At the house he had trouble standing.
We were thinking itmight be food poisoning,
might be the flu, mightbe something like that
but when he had trouble standing
I thought this might be more server,
so, I knew it at that point
that it was time to getto children's medical.
They were willing to call the ambulance
to move him down there.
We just got in the car and we headed.
We could get there faster thanambulance could get there.
- [Kelly] And then rightaway they realized,
let's take him right in heneeds to get his appendix out
- [Narrator] Boone's appendix had ruptured
and he was rushed to surgery to remove it.
All indications were it had gone well
but later complications arose.
- His vital signs were not improving
and when they're not improving you
get concerned which was
extremely emotional andit causes you to think
where are we, what is going on?
This feels more seriousthan what I thought it was.
- [Narrator] When theyrealized that infection
from the appendix wasspreading doctors performed
a second surgery on Boone.
- When they went in tovacuum out the infection
it caused some lacerationsin different places
inside his abdomen and that's bleeding
and that ends up clottingup and being a hematoma.
The hematoma that they'remost concerned about
was literally the size of a can of coke
and that was in a positionthat it obstructed his colon.
After a number of daysof not seeing him improve
they came in and made the recommendation
that they go back in anddo a blood transfusion
because they felt likethe infection was not only
inside cavities all around his abdomen
but also in his blood.
- [Narrator] The bloodtransfusion was done
but Boone was still not improving.
- You start seeing specialists come in
to try to figure outcocktails of antibiotics.
- There were three surgical interventions.
Thy just couldn't quiteget ahead of the infection
and it was very aggressive
- The doctors came outand said Mr. Bonnema
we cannot go back in again.
This is our finalopportunity to help Boone.
He has to beat it this time,
and when a doctor says something like that
it's what you hear butit's also the unsaid.
We're no longer in the land of the normal
with a burst appendix,
but we're actually in a situation where
we're watching our son fight for his life
and doctors saying that there'snothing else that we can do
and that is a very solemn reality.
- I think at that pointin time it really hit
that the thing that isapparent at that moment
is you really had to give it to God.
- [Narrator] The Bonnema'sthen begin asking their friends
and community to pray.
- I knew and could feel thatpeople were praying for me all
around the the country basically.
- In that moment you just say God
is this truly your storythat you're writing
cause I don't wanna loose my son.
I love him
and you say God I submithe's yours he's not mine
if it be your will wewanna finish raising him.
Please let us have that opportunity.
If you take him we understand he's yours.
That is a really quietconversation between
a father and a heavenly father.
- [Narrator] Boone wason morphine for the pain
and went in and out ofconsciousness for several days
as his parents continued to pray.
- The grace of God was definitely heavy.
I think God gives you thatstrength when you can't,
you don't have it in yourself.
It's not a human strength.
It's a strength thatonly can come from Him.
- On a daily basis peoplewere giving us scriptures.
Whenever you're going through something
the scriptures come to life in a new way.
A way that you maybe hadnever read it before.
- [Narrator] Then fiveweeks after being in ICU
he began to stabilize.
The doctors cautioned his parents though
that due to the damage to the colon
Boone would probablynever lead a normal life.
- But we were just so grateful
that he was gonna have a life.
We started seeing so muchmovement in the right direction.
He was waking up, he wasable to talk to us again,
and I can't tell you what it's like
to not be able to speak toyour child for days on end,
and a little bit of food,a little bit of water,
he was being fed through a feeding tube.
At ten years old when you loose 40 pounds,
you don't have 40 pounds to loose.
- [Narrator] It took nearlya year but Boone went on
to make a full recovery.
Eight years later Boone isa healthy active young man.
Showing no evidence of thetrauma he went through.
- One of my favorite versusis out of Isaiah and it's
do not fear for I am with you
and do not be dismayed for I am your God.
God is there with you even though
it doesn't seem like it at the moment.
People who don't think that God is real
or things like that is
pretty difficult for me to hear because
of the amount of thingsthat God has done for me.
There's so many blessings.
- [Narrator] He evenstarted playing football
and recently accepted a full ride
to play for Western Michiganin the fall of 2019.
- Truly miracles are on top ofwhat all the doctors had said
was going to be his new reality.
That God wasn't gonna have that for Boone.
God was gonna do somethingdifferent with Boone.
He didn't just get healed a little bit
he got healed completely.
He is the most active youngman out there on the field.
- I think going throughthis whole experience
is you really appreciate andrealize that prayer is real
and it is powerful.
- There is a person who'sa greater physician then
all that have MD degrees.
Gods a great physician.
- God spared me to I think help others
in the long run to share mystory like I am right now
and to help give hope to other people
that might be goingthrough the same hardships.
- But he's fully restored andonly the Lord can do that.
Only the Lord can do what man can't.
- What a marvelous testimony.
God is able folks, he's able,
and we have some veryserious prayer requests
and we've been asking for prayer requests
and thousands of them are coming to us.
Now, this one says, "Ineed to be healed of
congestive heart failure."
That's kind of couldbe the end of the line,
it doesn't have to be but it can be.
"That my husband will behealed of prostate cancer."
"Pray for the rapid sell of our farm."
and somebody, this is a good one.
"That our president and his cabinet
will be lived by the lordand given divine wisdom."
We need to pray for our president,
and pray for those in authority.
What do you have?
- Well, here's someone saying "please pray
that my 48 year old nephewwakes up from the coma
he has been in for five years."
"pray for restoration ofmy relationship with my son
and daughter in law, thestress has made me ill."
"Pray for the blood clot inmy left leg to dissolve."
and someone saying "Iam asking for salvation
for my seven children, 25 grandchildren
and nine great grandchildren."
- None of them saved?- I don't know.
- Apparently not if she wantssalvation for all of them.
Alright, we're gonna join hands,folks you pray with us now.

right after this.
- David, he's the largerthan life biblical character
with a gigantic fall from grace
but what else do you really know
about the life of king David?
That's the question raised by a new book
on Israel's most famousleader, take a look.
- [Narrator] New York Timesbest selling author, pastor,
speaker and former collegepresident Doctor Mark Rutland
believes that it's time to tell
the whole story of King David,
not just the Sunday school version.
- So, this guy points hisfinger in the king's face
and says you're the man.
I denounce you, adulatory and murder
and David shocks the whole nation.
David says, you're right, I did it.
God give us leaders that are able to say
Alright, I did it.
- [Narrator] In his newbook David the Great
Doctor Rutland peels backthe controversial layers
of King David's life and shares the key
that made him a man after God's own heart.
- Please welcome back to the700 Club Doctor Mark Rutland.
It's always great to have you here.
- Thank you, nice to be back.
- You know David is one ofthose figures in the Bible
that everybody that hasbiblical knowledge knows about.
Why did you decide tochoose to write about him?
- That's a really good question actually,
because the challenge is howmuch he has been talked about
and preached about and written about,
and so, one asks oneselfdo I have anything
unique or new ordifferent to say about it.
What convinced me to write about it,
I had lectured, taught and preached at,
I served as the president oftwo different universities
over a period of 16 years,- [Terry] Yes.
- And the fascination of millennials
is actually what convinced me.
- [Terry] Really?
- They would pack auditoria, classrooms,
special lectures and then faculty,
so, I would have a PhD in his 70's
sitting next to a freshman in 17
and they were both intrigued with David
and I began to be inundated literally
with letters and emails, pleasewrite a book, write a book
and I decided there is,there are some aspects
of this complicated multifaceted genius
that needed to be explored in a new book.
- Pages are so flat.
We read this story butwhen you dig in to the life
you say in your bookthat for every Goliath
in the life of David there was a Bathsheba
around the corner.
What do you mean by that?
- Well, David's life is anabsolute roller coaster.
- [Terry] Yeah.
- The itinerations ofhis life and history are,
they are shocking but at the same time
they enable us to relate to him,
so, at our points of success
we say oh, I fit there.- [Terry] Yeah.
- Which of us is perfect.- [Terry] Yes.
- So, we also find someidentification at his failures
and you will read a purelife Joesph or Daniel
and there are times where you just say
yeah, that guy's so far beyond me.
- [Terry] I could never be that.
- I could never be Joesph but
- [Terry] But David.- you can say David
now okay David I'm there.(laughter)
- So, is that the reasonthat it's so important for us
to examine the, if youwill, dark side of David
because it's relatable?
- Well, on the one hand it is.
Another and more important aspect
of the reason for that examination
is the grace of God.- [Terry] Yeah.
- David is, certainlyhis sins are majestic
but we daren't use David's sins
to justify or rationalize our own.
Instead we use hisrepentance to inform our own
and Davids repentance always led him back
not simply to remorse but to God himself
and that's the critical issue.
- Yeah, I think in David's story how
it wasn't just one choice,
but one bad choice can lead to another
can lead to another and he finds himself
in such a terrible situation and yet
God says he's a man after his own heart.
How do you reconcile thedark side of David's life,
the choices he made with astatement like that from God?
- Yeah, not only is that statement made
by Samuel before we really meet David
but a thousand years later Saint Paul-
- [Terry] Yeah.- Layers that statement
and Paul says and God testified of him.
- [Terry] Wow.
- He is a man after mine own heart, so-
- Hope, there's hope.- There's hope,
and what I came up with,that's the conundrum of David
isn't it?Why is he called,
why isn't Joesph calleda man after my own heart?
Certainly, this is what I've come up with.
David was like one of thesepowerful running backs
in American football, theycrash through the line
and they come at you, okayyou may bring him down
but they're gonna fall for 3.5 yards
and they're gonna get,you know you've only
got them down temporarily.
They're gonna get upand come again and again
and they're gonna punish youall the way to the goal line
because they are so fastened on that goal
and I think that's the thing.
David fell but if he werespeaking in to the camera
right now he'd say, okay, you fell,
fall forward, fall atthe foot of the cross,
get up and go again.
David was fastened on the goal line.
- And you were talkingabout some of the things
that happened that were so dark
in the latter part of his life but
David waited on theprophecy that was given
the anointing that was calledforth in him for a long time.
What can we learn fromhim about waiting on God?
- Good, I'm really glad youasked that because I don't wanna
just talk about the darkthings in David's life.
David is a majestic man of God
who accomplished incredible things.
The founder of a nation,
the founder of the city of Jerusalem
the eternal capital of the Jewish people
and a complex genius, a poet.
His poetry has endured for 3000 years
and he was a musical genius,
he was an administrativegenius, a builder, a construct,
so, all of those things, so, I think that
when we look at the life of David
we need to not just concentrateon those darker areas
but on the wonderfulaccomplishments of King David.
- It's the combination of the two
that makes his story so compelling
and gives us such foodfor though and such hope.

Well, we wanna take a quick question
and from all of you that have written in.
This is from Karen Pat who says,
"I am a cancer survivorand health conscious.
I love herbal tea and founda good premium source.
The problem is that the owner
of the tea company is Buddhist.
My husband says I can't order from them.
What do you think?"
Paul says if I can't dealwith these unbelievers
these must go out of the world.
I mean, there's just no question
if the guys got goodtea then drink the tea.
Okay.- my words exactly.
Okay this is Kris who says,
"I'm trying to do theright thing before God,
so, when my 35 year old stepsoncomes home from out of state
with a new girlfriend each time
I request and prepareseparate rooms for them.
Last time he visitedthey stayed at a hotel,
so, we didn't visit much.
Am I doing the right thing?
Or should I invite them into our home
and let God deal with them?"
- No, I think you'redoing the right thing.
You're setting a standard.
He realized what the standard is
and he keeps having multiple girlfriends.
I mean, look if he reallywants to have a girlfriend
why didn't he get married to her
but he wants to have allthe benefits of marriage
without the commitmentand all you're doing is
being an enabler and you sayno I'm not gonna be an enabler,
so, standards are good, no problem.
- [Terry] Absolutely.
- Well, we'll leave you withtoday's power minute from
1 Thessalonians, "Rejoicealways, pray without ceasing,
