The 700 Club - February 1, 2013

Cocaine addiction put Kim Ivory on the wrong side of a drug deal gone bad. Plus, Kim Savage was horrified to discover a golf-ball size lump near her trachea. See how God intervened in both of these lives on today's 700 Club. Read Transcript


I NEVER FELT FEAR LIKE

THIS BEFORE.

Lee: DEATH TAKES A CAR

RIDE.

HE WAS JUST WAITING, YOU

KNOW, FOR ME TO CLOSE MY

EYES.

Lee: ALONGSIDE A MAN

WHO GOT SHOT IN THE CHEST.

BLOOD WAS COMING OUT OF

MY EARS AND COMING OUT OF MY

NOSE.

Lee: AND BIT THE

BULLET.

I FELT SOMETHING HIT ME

IN THE FRONT OF MY MOUTH.

I WAS LIKE, UH-OH.

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A TERRIFIC STORY.

A NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE, ONE

FROM A MAN THAT SHOULD HAVE

DIED.

A MIRACLE.

WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT

MIRACLES BECAUSE WE BELIEVE

IN MIRACLES.

YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

I'LL LET YOU KNOW AFTER THE

SUPER BOWL, HOW I BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES.

Pat: IF EITHER ONE OF

THOSE TEAMS WINS, IT IS NOT

A MIRACLE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT

GAME.

UNLESS I MISS MY GUESS, IT

WILL BE A HIGH-SCORING

GAME.

ONCE AGAIN, THE MIDDLE EAST

FACES THE POSSIBILITY OF A

REGIONAL WAR.

ISRAEL, AS YOU'VE PROBABLY

HEARD, LAUNCHED AN AIR

STRIKE IN SYRIA THIS WEEK TO

STOP A SHIPMENT OF DEADLY

WEAPONS FROM REACHING THEIR

ENEMIES, THE HEZBOLLAH.

Terry: NOW SYRIA AND

IRAN HAS THREATENED A

SURPRISE RETALIATION AGAINST

ISRAEL.

AND CHRISTINE MITCHELL HAS

WHAT COULD HAPPEN NEXT.

Reporter: ON THURSDAY,

THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT

CONVENED AN EMERGENCY

MEETING TO CONDEMN THE

ISRAELI AIR STRIKE.

DAYS BEFORE THE STRIKE,

ISRAEL WARNED IT WOULD BE A

WARNING AGAINST SYRIA.

WE SEE DIFFERENTLY A

HIGHER LEVEL OF THREAT IN

AMERICA, AS WELL AS IN

ISRAEL, ABOUT THE

POSSIBILITY OF THESE TYPES

OF WEAPONS FALLING INTO THE

HANDS OF THE OPPOSITION, THE

HANDS OF HEZBOLLAH.

Reporter: OFFICIALLY,

ISRAEL WILL NOT COMMENT ON

THE ATTACK.

IN THE PAST, IT HAS DECLARED

RED LINES.

IT WOULD NOT ALLOW SYRIA'S

CHEMICAL WEAPONS TO FALL

INTO HEZBOLLAH OR JIHADI

HANDS.

PRESIDENT ASSAD LOSING

CONTROL OF MORE AND MORE OF

HIS COUNTRY, THE LIKELIHOOD

OF MORE ISRAELI STRIKES IS

GROWING.

WITHOUT ACTION BY WESTERN

COUNTRIES, ONE ISRAELI

OFFICIAL SAID IT COULD WELL

BE THAT WE WILL REACH THE

STAGE WHERE WE WILL HAVE TO

MAKE DECISIONS.

ISRAEL'S POSITIONED IRON

DOME BATTERIES IN THE NORTH

AGAINST POSSIBLE

RETALIATION.

BUT IT SEEMS UNLIKELY

HEZBOLLAH OR SYRIA WOULD

ATTACK ISRAEL OPENLY AT THIS

POINTS.

I THINK ASSAD HAS NO

INTEREST IN ESCALATING THE

CONFLICT.

HIS PLATE IS FULL WITH

FIGHTING THE OPPOSITION.

THIS IS WHY ISRAEL HAS

GREATER LEEWAYS THAN USUAL.

Lee: THE GREATER THREAT

SEEMS TO BE FROM AN ATTACK

AGAINST ISRAEL OR JEWISH

PORTS ABROAD.

LIKE THE ATTACK LAST

SUMMER.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Pat: THE QUESTION IS

WHAT HAS ALREADY GONE ACROSS

SYRIAN TERRITORY INTO THE

HANDS OF TERRORISTS?

VARIOUS TYPES OF WEAPONS, IN

ADDITION TO CHEMICAL

WEAPONS?

WE DON'T KNOW.

THE UNITED STATES IS IN A

VERY DIFFICULT SITUATION

HERE.

WE REALLY DON'T WANT TO ARM

THOSE REBELS BECAUSE THEY

PROBABLY ARE TERRORISTS.

WE CAN'T SET UP ANOTHER

GROUP OF al-QAEDA FIGHTERS

IN SYRIA.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE CAN'T

SUPPORT ASSAD BECAUSE HE IS

A BRUTAL DICTATOR, AND THE

COUNTRY IS IN CHAOS.

SO WHAT DO WE DO?

WELL, WHAT WE DO IS SIT ON

THE FENCE AND NOT DO

ANYTHING.

AND AS A RESULT, THE EVENTS

WILL TAKE CONTROL.

AND IT SEEMS TO BE SPINNING

OUT OF HAND.

SO ARE THEY GETTING CLOSER

TO WAR OVER THERE?

THE ANSWER IS, YES, THEY

ARE.

ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST

WERE AMONG THE HOT TOPICS IN

AN INTENSE CONFIRMATION

HEARING IN WASHINGTON.

THE CNN REPORTER, AS I READ

IN ONE REPORT, SAID THAT

THEY WERE RATHER SURPRISED

AT HOW ILL-PREPARED CHUCK

HAGEL WAS FOR THOSE

HEARINGS.

LEE WEBB MAS MORE ON THE CBN

REPORT ABOUT THIS.

Lee: PAT, NO QUESTION.

A BRUISING CONFIRMATION

HEARING FOR PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S NOMINEE FOR

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.

CHUCK HAGEL HAS SPENT NEARLY

EIGHT HOURS IN THE HOT SEAT

ON THURSDAY.

HE IS A VIETNAM VETERAN, AND

A FORMER REPUBLICAN

SENATOR.

BUT IT IS HIS FORMER G.O.P.

COLLEAGUES WHO ARE THE MOST

CRITICAL OF HIS NOMINATION.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: FORMER

NEBRASKA SENATOR CHUCK HAGEL

SPENT HOURS TRYING TO

EXPLAIN HIMSELF TO MEMBERS

OF THE SENATE ARMED SERVICES

COMMITTEE.

WHILE HAGEL HAS WON SUPPORT

FROM SKEPTICAL DEMOCRATS, IT

IS STILL AN UPHILL CLIMB

WITH HIS FELLOW

REPUBLICANS.

ONE OF HIS MOST OUTSPOKEN

CRITICS, FELLOW VIETNAM

VETERAN JOHN MCCAIN.

WILL YOU CORRECT OR

INCORRECT WHEN YOU SAID THAT

THE SURGE WOULD BE THE MOST

DANGEROUS FOREIGN POLICY

BLUNDER IN HIS COUNTRY SINCE

VIETNAM.

WERE YOU CORRECT OR

INCORRECT?

WELL, I'M NOT GOING TO

GIVE YOU A YES OR NO

ANSWER.

SO YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER

THAT QUESTION.

Reporter: REPUBLICANS

FIGHT FUNDAMENTAL

DISAGREEMENTS WITH HAGEL'S

JUDGMENT, AND ISSUES ON

TERRORISM AND IRAN.

AND CRITICS SAY HE IS

ANTI-ISRAEL.

SPECIFICALLY PASSING A

COMMENT ON WHAT HE CALLED

"THE JEWISH LOBBY."

I'VE ALREADY SAID I

REGRET REFERENCING THE

JEWISH LOBBY.

I SHOULD HAVE SAID THE

PRO-ISRAEL LOBBY.

Reporter: HAGEL URGED

LAWMAKERS NOT TO WRITE HIM

OFF BASED ON CONTROVERSIAL

QUOTES AND ENTIRE CAREER IN

THE SENATE.

NO ONE INDIVIDUAL VOTE,

NO ONE INDIVIDUAL QUOTE, NO

ONE INDIVIDUAL STATEMENT

DEFINES ME.

Reporter: IF CONFIRMED,

HAGEL WILL BE THE FIRST

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE TO HAVE

SEEN COMBAT AS AN ENLISTED

SOLDIER.

I DON'T SEE THE LENS OF

EVERY WORLD EVENT, AND

WHETHER WE SHOULD USE

AMERICAN POWER THROUGH THE

LENS OF VIETNAM.

BUT IT IS PART OF ME.

Reporter: IN ORDER TO

LOCKDOWN THE NOMINATION,

HAGEL NEEDS SUPPORT OF ALL

SENATE DEMOCRATS AND AT

LEAST FIVE REPUBLICANS.

MANY REPUBLICANS HAVE

ALREADY SAID THEY PLAN TO

VOTE AGAINST HAGEL.

BUT EXPERTS SAY IT IS

UNLIKELY ENOUGH DEMOCRATS

WOULD GO AGAINST THE

PRESIDENT TO PREVENT HAGEL

FROM BECOMING THE NEXT

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE.

Lee: SENATORS FROM BOTH

PARTIES WERE UNIMPRESSED

WITH HAGEL'S PERFORMANCE.

AND SOME WERE SHOCKED AT HOW

ILL-PREPARED HE SEEMED.

BUT A VOTE ON HAGEL CAN COME

AS EARLY AS NEXT WEEK.

SOMETHING THAT WAS INCLUDED

IN THE STORY IS HE DOES SEE

NOT ALL OF THE FUTURE

CONFLICTS THE U.S. MAY BE

INVOLVED IN THROUGH VIETNAM,

BUT HE DOES SEE A LOT

THROUGH THAT LENS.

AND I THINK THAT WILL

RESONATE WITH THE

CONSERVATIVES.

Pat: THE THING, LEE,

THAT IS SO TROUBLING ABOUT

THIS IS THAT THE PENTAGON IS

A HUGE ENTERPRISE.

I MEAN, IT IS GIGANTIC.

HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES,

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD.

THIS IS A MASSIVE

ENTERPRISE.

AND IT TAKES SOMEBODY WHO

HAS GREAT SKILL IN

ORGANIZING A VAST ENTER

ENTERPRISE TO DO THIS.

CHUCK HAGEL HAS NO

EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER.

AND BEING A FOOT SOLDIER IN

AN ARMY IN COMBAT DOESN'T

QUALIFY YOU FOR THAT.

I MEAN, IT JUST DOESN'T.

THEY DON'T KNOW THE BIG

PICTURE.

YOU DON'T KNOW BEYOND THE

PLATOON SIZE OR THE SQUAD

SIZE OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN

A WAR.

IT IS FILLED WITH RUMORS,

AND THE GRUNT, AS THEY'RE

CALLED, IN THE TRENCHES IS

NOT PRIVY TO WHAT THE

GENERALS ARE THINKING.

AND THE GENERALS AREN'T

NECESSARILY PRIVY TO WHAT IS

BEING THOUGHT OF IN THE

PENTAGON.

THIS IS A MASSIVE

ENTERPRISE.

AND SOMEBODY WHO IS IN

CHARGE OF IT SHOULD HAVE HAD

VAST EXPERIENCE EITHER IN

GOVERNMENT OR IN BUSINESS TO

RUN THIS ENTERPRISE.

CHUCK HAGEL DOESN'T DO IT.

PLUS THE FACT THAT HE IS

SORT OF A LEFT-WING

RADICAL.

SO HIS VIEWS ARE A LITTLE

SQUISHY ON ACTUAL ISSUES.

BUT IT IS MORE THAN JUST

DECIDING WE'RE GOING TO PUT

A BUTTON HERE OR BUTTON

THERE.

HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE?

HOW DO YOU BUY WEAPONS

SYSTEMS?

HOW DO YOU DO ADVANCED LEAD

TIMES IN COMPLEX SYSTEMS

LIKE AIRPLANES AND MISSILES

AND CYBER-WARFARE.

HE IS TOTALLY UNQUALIFIED

FOR THIS.

AND JUST THE FACT THAT HE IS

A FORMER REPUBLICAN, BIG

DEAL.

THEY OUGHT TO VOTE HIM

DOWN.

LEE?

Lee: SENATOR TED CRUZ

TELLS CBN NEWS THAT

REPUBLICANS CAN WIN BACK

CONTROL OF THE U.S. SENATE

NEXT YEAR.

DAVID BRODY SPOKE WITH THE

NEWLY ELECTED SENATOR AT HIS

HOME IN HOUSTON.

CRUZ MAY BE A FRESHMAN, BUT

HE IS A HOT COMMODITY IN

WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW.

HE HAS STRONG SUPPORT FROM

THE TEA PARTY, AND HE IS THE

NEW VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE

REPUBLICAN SENATE

COMMITTEE.

THAT MEANS IT IS HIS JOB TO

HELP THEM REGAIN THE

MAJORITY IN THE UPPER

CHAMBER.

IN 2014, THERE WILL BE

SENATE RACES ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY I THINK ARE

CRITICALLY IMPORTANT.

I BELIEVE REPUBLICANS CAN

WIN A MAJORITY OF THE SENATE

IN 2014.

IT IS NOT GOING TO BE EASY,

BUT I THINK IT IS POSSIBLE.

IF WE STAND TOGETHER, IF WE

STAND FOR PRINCIPLE, I THINK

WE CAN TAKE A MAJORITY OF

THE SENATE.

AND I THINK TAKING A

MAJORITY OF THE SENATE IS AN

IMPORTANT STEP TO BEING ABLE

TO ADVANCE THESE

PRINCIPLES.

TO BE ABLE TO SHINK THE SIZE

AND POWER OF GOVERNMENT AND

TO GET ECONOMIC GROWTH

GOING.

Lee: YOU CAN SEE MORE

OF THAT INTERVIEW, GO TO

DAVID'S BLOG, "THE BRODY

FILE" AT CBNNEWS.COM.

THE JANUARY UNEMPLOYMENT

REPORT CAME IN AT 7.9%, UP A

10TH OF A POINT, FROM 7.8%

IN DECEMBER.

THE ECONOMY ADDED 157,000

JOBS MONTH, BUT THE LABOR

DEPARTMENT SAYS HIRING HAS

BEEN GETTING STRONGER IN

RECENT MONTHS.

AND ANALYSTS EXPECT THE

ECONOMY TO KEEP GROWING AT A

SLOW TO MODERATE PACE THIS

YEAR.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS DECIDED,

HOWEVER, TO LET HIS JOBS

COUNCIL EXPIRE, EVEN THOUGH

MORE THAN 12 MILLION

AMERICANS REMAIN OUT OF

WORK.

THE PRESIDENT CREATED THE

COUNCIL TWO YEARS AGO, WHEN

UNEMPLOYMENT HOVERED AROUND

9%.

AS WE MENTIONED, IT IS LOWER

NOW, BUT BOTH PARTIES

BELIEVE IT IS WAY TOO HIGH,

ESPECIALLY AFTER NEWS THIS

WEEK, THAT THE U.S. ECONOMY

SHRANK IN THE FOURTH

QUARTER.

THE COUNCIL WAS CREATED TO

HELP TO ADVICE ON THE

ECONOMY.

A FEDERAL JUDGE IN ST. LOUIS

HAS THROWN OUT A LAWSUIT

OVER THE MANDATE TO FUND

CONTRACEPTION.

THE JUDGE CALLED THE LAWSUIT

FILED BY THE ARCH DIASIS

DIASIS PREMATURE.

MANY ANALYSTS BELIEVING THE

SUPREME COURT WILL DECIDE

THAT CASE ULTIMATELY.

THE MANDATE FOR RELIGIOUS

GROUPS WILL TAKE EFFECT IN

AUGUST.

WELL, WHEN THE SAN FRANCISCO

49ers AND BALTIMORE RAVENS

MEET IN THE SUPER BOWL, WILL

GOD PLAY A ROLE IN WHICH

TEAM WINS?

WELL, THERE ARE SURVEYS

ABOUT THAT.

A POLL ASKED THAT OF

AMERICANS, AND DISCOVERED

THAT NEARLY 30% SAY YES.

WE ALSO FOUND THAT A

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS, 53%

OF AMERICANS, SAY THAT GOD

REWARDS ATHLETES WHO HAVE

FAITH WITH GOOD HEALTH AND

SUCCESS IN THEIR CAREERS.

SO WE'VE SEEN A LOT OF

ATHLETES, YOU KNOW, IN

BASKETBALL AND BASEBALL AND

FOOTBALL WHO ARE VERY

DELIBERATE ABOUT, YOU KNOW,

WITNESSING ABOUT THEIR

FAITH, EITHER BEFORE THE

GAME, AFTER THE GAME, DURING

THE GAME, THROUGH GESTURES,

AND WE ACTUALLY SAW THAT

ALSO MOST AMERICANS, YOU

KNOW, APPROVE OF THOSE

EXPRESSIONS OF FAITH ON THE

FIELD.

Lee: EVEN PEOPLE WHO

DESCRIBE THEMSELVES AS

RELIGIOUSLY UNAFFILIATED

APPROVE OF ATHLETES

EXPRESSING THEIR FAITH.

JUST 8% DISAPPROVE.

FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH, PAT,

AS FOR THE OUTCOME, IF GOD

CONTROLS EVERY MOLECULE IN

THE UNIVERSE, YES, HE

CONTROLS EVEN FOOTBALL

GAMES.

BUT SOMETIMES HIS GREATER

GLORY IS MANIFESTED THROUGH

A DEFEAT.

Pat: WELL, WE JUST

DON'T KNOW.

I USED TO PLAY THIS, THAT,

AND THE OTHER, AND I WAS A

BOXER WHEN I WAS IN PREP

SCHOOL, AND, BELIEVE ME,

I'VE SAT ON THE COLD FLOOR

WAITING TO GO INTO AN ARENA

TO GET MY BRAINS KNOCKED

OUT, AND TRUST ME, I

PRAYED.

BUT THAT DIDN'T NECESSARILY

MEAN I WAS GOING TO WIN.

I THINK THE FACT THAT

SOMEBODY PRAYS OR IS

RELIGIOUS DOES NOT

NECESSARILY MEAN GOD IS

GOING TO INTERVENE AND

STRIKE THE OPPONENT DEAD ON

THE PLAYING FIELD AND THEY

WILL RIDE OFF TRIUMPHANTLY.

YES, IF SOMEBODY FOLLOWS THE

PRINCIPLES OF THE LORD, HE

WILL HAVE HEALTH, HE'LL HAVE

A LONG LIFE, AND HE'LL

PROSPER.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

WISDOM WILL BRING PROSPERITY

TO EVERY PART OF YOUR BEING,

AND IT WILL.

AND IT WILL MAKE YOU WISE,

AND IT WILL MAKE YOU WISE IN

LIFE CHOICE.

BUT IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY

MEAN YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A

BODY LIKE ARNOLD

SCHWARZENEGGER, OR YOU'RE

GOING TO NECESSARILY BE THE

NEXT CHAMPION OF WHATEVER.

BUT, HEY --

Terry: NO POM-POMS IN

HEAVEN?

Pat: NO POM-POMS IN

HEAVEN.

I THINK GOD HAS A WHOLE LOT

MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO

THAN WHO WINS THE SUPER

BOWL.

Terry: I WOULD LIKE TO

THINK THAT.

Pat: I'M GOING TO ASK

ONE OF THE MEDIA COMPANIES

THAT TAKES A SURVEY EVERY

YEAR -- I WON IT SEVERAL

YEARS AGO.

MY SCORING WAS THE NUMBER

ONE IN THE COUNTRY.

SO FOR AN OLD COUCH POTATO,

I DON'T DO TOO BADLY.

SO I PUT IN MY ENTRY.

Terry: DO YOU WANT TO

SPECULATE?

Pat: I'M NOT GOING TO

ON THIS PROGRAM, BUT YOU'LL

SEE.

IT CAME OUT.

I HAVE A HEART FOR BOTH OF

THEM.

MY HEART IS WITH THE RAVENS,

BUT AT THE SAIMENTS, SAME

TIME, I THINK THE 49ers

ARE GOING TO WIN.

I GIVE THEM A WIN BY ONE

TOUCHDOWN.

Terry: THERE ARE GOOD

STORIES ON BOTH SIDES.

Pat: AND HUNDREDS OF

PEOPLE CAME TO THE LORD WHEN

THEY HEARD THOSE

TESTIMONIES.

THE COUCHES ARE BOTH

CHRISTIANS.

AND HERE THEY ARE, TWO

BROTHERS.

IT IS A WONDERFUL STORY.

LAMAR HUNT WAS H.L. HUNT'S

SON OF THE KANSAS CITY

CHIEFS.

AND SO HE SETS UP THIS THING

CALLED THE SUPER BOWL.

IT HAS BECOME A HUGE EVENT.

A FUNNY STORY ABOUT HIS

FATHER, H.L. HUNT.

A MAN CAME AND SAID,

MR. HUNT, YOU'RE CRAZY SON,

LAMAR, IS LOSING A MILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR ON THAT TEAM,

THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS.

HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THAT

WILL GO ON?

AND HUNT THOUGHT A MINUTE,

AND HE SAID, ABOUT 200

YEARS.

AND THE SUPER BOWL GOES ON

AND EVERYBODY LIKES IT.

HE IS THE FATHER OF THE

SUPER BOWL.

Terry: OKAY.

UP NEXT, A NEW PERSPECTIVE

ON WINTER WEIGHT GAIN.

PEOPLE TEND TO OVEREAT

DURING THE WINTER MONTHS AND

END UP PUTTING WEIGHT ON AS

A RESULT OF THIS MEDICAL

CONDITION.

Terry: FIND OUT HOW TO

LIGHTEN YOUR WEIGHT AND LIFT

YOUR MOOD.

Lee: STILL AHEAD, A

DRUG DEAL GONE WRONG.

THE GUY PULLED OUT A .38

CALIBER.

Lee: A STREET HUSTLER

GOES ON THE RIDE OF HIS

LIFE.

I NEVER FELT FEAR LIKE

THIS BEFORE.

Lee: WITH A PASSENGER

FROM HELL.

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR

ME TO CLOSE MY EYES.

Pat: HEY, IT'S FRIDAY!

AND IT WAS WARM HERE.

IN THE 70s.

NOW IT'S COLD, IN THE

30s.

Terry: I WAS GOING TO

SAY, "WAS" IS THE KEY WORD

IN THAT SENTENCE.

Pat: IT IS AMAZING, THE

WINDS CAME THROUGH AND BLEW

LIKE CRAZY, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN THE

WEATHER HAS

SHIFTED.

WE LIVE IN A STRANGE TIME.

ANYWAY, THE SUPER BOWL IS

COMING UP.

DO YOU HAVE

THE WINTER

BLAHS, THE BLUES?

SOMETHING HAPPENS IN

THE

WINTERTIME AND PEOPLE GET

SICK.

FOR THE

LAST 30 YEARS,

DOCTORS HAVE ACTUALLY

RECOGNIZED THIS AS AN ACTUAL

MEDICAL CONDITION.

OUR FEARLESS HEALTH

REPORTER, LAURIE JOHNSON, IS

GOING TO TELL US ABOUT

SOMETHING CALLED S.A.D.,

SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER,

AND WHAT YOU CAN DO IF

YOU'VE GOT IT.

Reporter: LIKE MILLIONS

OF AMERICANS, MISTY PETER'S

MOOD CHANGES WITH THE

SEASONS.

GENERALLY, I'M A HAPPY

PERSON.

Reporter: BUT IN THE

WINTER, SHE GETS THE BLUES.

THAT'S BECAUSE OF A SEASONAL

AFFECTIVE DISORDER, OR

S.A.D., WHICH PRODUCES

SYMPTOMS SIMILAR TO

HIBERNATION.

YOU LOOK OUTSIDE, AND

YOU'RE NOT AS MOTIVATED TO

DO THINGS.

YOU JUST KIND OF WOULD

RATHER SIT AROUND AND EAT.

Reporter: THE REASON

PEOPLE GET S.A.D.IS BECAUSE

OF THE DECREASED SUNLIGHT IN

THE WINTER, WHICH COULD

DISRUPT OUR SARCADIUM

RHYTHM.

BLAME IT ON HORMONES,

MELATONIN, WHICH MAKES US

FEEL TIRED IS TRIGGERED BY

DARKNESS, AND REACHES ITS

HIGHEST LEVELS AT NIGHT.

BUT PEOPLE LIKE MISTY ALSO

HAVE INCREASED MELATONIN

LEVELS DURING THE DAY.

THEN THERE IS SEROTONIN,

WHICH IS TRIGGERED BY

SUNLIGHT AND MAKES US FEEL

HAPPY.

BUT PEOPLE WITH S.A.D. HAVE

LOW LEVELS OF SEROTONIN.

DR. WAYNE REYNOLDS SAYS THE

DISORDER SEVERELY AFFECTS 5%

OF AMERICANS, AND ANOTHER

20% HAVE A MILD CASE AND

DON'T EVEN REALIZE IT.

INTERESTINGLY, A LOT OF

PEOPLE WILL PUT ON WEIGHT,

AND WE'VE ALWAYS SORT OF

BLAMED IT ON THE WINTER

MONTHS.

PEOPLE ARE LESS ACTIVE IN

THE WINTER MONTHS.

BUT PEOPLE WITH S.A.D. WHO

HAVE A CRAVING FOR

CARBOHYDRATES, AND PUT

WEIGHT ON.

Reporter: WOMEN ARE

USUALLY AFFECTED MORE THAN

MEN, AND IT IS MORE

PREVALENT IN NORTHERN

CLIMATES.

BUT THE DOCTOR SAYS THESE

PEOPLE DON'T NEED TO SUFFER

ANYMORE.

SO MANY PEOPLE TEND TO

IGNORE IT AND CHALK IT OFF

AS THE WINTER BLUES.

WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THERE

ARE OPTIONS AND THERE ARE

TREATMENTS FOR IT.

Reporter: LIGHT THERAPY

IS A VERY EFFECTIVE

TREATMENT.

IT INVOLVES SITTING IN FRONT

OF A SPECIALIZED LIGHT BOX

FOR 30 MINUTES A DAY.

IT NEEDS TO HAVE A POWER OF

10,000 LOTS, WHICH IS MORE

THAN 20 TIMES STRONGER THAN

THE AVERAGE LIGHTBULB.

IT IS LIKE SITTING

OUTSIDE OR AT THE BEACH OR

UNDER THE SUN.

IT DOESN'T EMIT ANY LIGHT,

BUT IT IS JUST A VERY BRIGHT

LIGHT.

Reporter: TANNING BEDS

ARE NOT AN ACCEPTABLE

TREATMENT BECAUSE THEY EMIT

ULTRAVIOLET RAYS, WHICH CAN

CAUSE MELANOMA.

THE PAST PRESIDENT OF THE

AMERICAN ACADEMY OF

DERMATOLOGY SAYS THERE IS

NEVER A GOOD REASON TO STEP

INTO A TANNING BED.

THE WORLD HEALTH

ORGANIZATION HAS CLASSIFIED

ULTRAVIOLET TANNING

EQUIPMENT AS KNOWN

CARCINOGENS.

IT IS CLEARLY THE CASE,

DESPITE ARGUMENTS FROM THE

TANNING INDUSTRY OTHERWISE.

TANNING CAUSES SKIN CANCER.

Reporter: IN ADDITION

TO A LIGHT BOX, YOU CAN ALSO

BRIGHTEN YOUR WINTER BY

USING HIGHER WATTAGE

LIGHTBULBS, INSTALLING A

SKYLIGHT,

OR SIMPLY OPENING

THE BLINDS.

IF YOU HAVE S.A.D. AND WORK

IN A DARK ENVIRONMENT, LIKE

THE CBN NEWS ROOM, WHICH HAS

NO WINDOWS, MAKE IT A POINT

TO SPEND A FEW MINUTES

OUTSIDE EVERY HOUR OR SO.

ONE OF THE OTHER

RECOMMENDATIONS, TOO, IS

SOMETIMES, AND PEOPLE HAVE

BEEN DOING THIS, TAKE A

WINTER VACATION, AND GET

DOWN TO THE CARRIBEAN.

Reporter: OR INSTEAD OF

GIVING IN AND REACHING FOR

YOUR COMFORTER, REACH FOR

YOUR GYM BAG INSTEAD.

EXERCISE PUMPS OXYGEN INTO

THE BRAIN, MAKING US ALERT

AND ENERGETIC.

AND EXERCISE RELEASES

ENDORPHINS, WHICH CREATES A

FEELING OF EUPHORIA.

IF THERE IS A DAY I'M

HAVING A BAD DAY, I'M

STRESSED OUT AND TIRED,

SOMETIMES WORKING OUT

REVERSES ALL OF THAT.

I COME INTO THE GYM.

I FORGET ABOUT ALL OF MY

PROBLEMS.

AND I CONCENTRATE ON WHAT

I'M DOING PHYSICALLY AND IT

HELPS ME MENTALLY.

Reporter: IF YOU'RE

SUPPORTING A CASE OF THE

WINTER BLUES, A FEW

LIFESTYLE CHANGES CAN HELP

YOU ENJOY WINTER, AND SPRING

WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW

IT.

LAURIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, LAURIE.

VERY PERCEPTIVE.

I WOULD ALSO ADD TO LAURIE'S

STORY, VITAMIN "D."

YOU HAVE LOWER LEVELS OF

VITAMIN "D" BECAUSE YOU

DON'T HAVE THE SUN.

OUR BODY CREATES VITAMIN "D"

WHEN EXPOSED TO SUNLIGHT.

THAT HIBERNATION THING IS

NOT LIKE THE WORST THING IN

THE WORLD.

IT'S LIKE THE BEARS.

Terry: IF YOU'VE GOT

SOME GOOD FOOD.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A NICE

CAVE AND YOU CRAWL IN AND

SLEEP UNTIL SPRING.

YOU DON'T WORRY ABOUT

S.A.D.

Terry: THEY USED TO

CALL THAT LIGHT DEPRIVATION.

BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE

AFFECTED.

Pat: OF COURSE.

THE SEROTONIN IS WHAT MAKES

YOU HAPPY AND UP.

TO LIVE IN A DARK ROOM, THAT

MAKES YOU UNHAPPY.

Terry: SO WHY DID YOU

DO THAT TO OUR NEWSROOM

PEOPLE?

Pat: WELL, I WANTED THE

STORIES TO BE NEGATIVE.

I DIDN'T WANT THEM TO HAVE

POSITIVE STORIES.

THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO COME

OUT OF THE NEWSROOM ALL

HAPPY.

Terry: WE'LL GET THEM

FLASHLIGHTS.

Pat: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS RUINING

AMERICA.

HOW CAN THEY HAVE NEGATIVE

STORE STORIES IF THEY'VE

GOT LIGHT IN THEIR ROOM.

Terry: I DON'T KNOW.

COMING UP, DEATH RIDES

SHOTGUN.

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR

ME TO CLOSE MY EYES.

Terry: HEAR HOW THIS

MAN CHEATED DEATH.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELCOME BACK, AS

WE CONTINUE THIS SPECIAL

FRIDAY EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

KIM IVORY FELT HIS LIFE

SLIPPING AWAY FROM HIM.

KIM HAD BEEN SHOT AND HE WAS

BLEEDING TO DEATH.

HE KNEW HE NEEDED TO GET TO

A HOSPITAL OR ELSE HE WAS

GOING TO HELL.

I KEPT LOOKING OVER MY

SHOULDER INTO THE BACK SEAT

BECAUSE IT FELT LIKE SOMEONE

WAS IN THE CAR WITH ME.

AND I JUST BELIEVED THAT WAS

DEATH.

HE WAS RIDING WITH ME, AND

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR ME

TO CLOSE MY EYES.

AND I KEPT TRYING TO HOLD MY

EYES OPEN.

BECAUSE I KNEW THE MOMENT

THAT I CLOSED MY EYES, THAT

I WAS GOING TO LIFT THEM UP

IN HELL.

Reporter: IN DECEMBER

OF 1993, KIM IVORY WAS SHOT

THROUGH THE CHEST AS HE SPED

AWAY FROM A DRUG DEAL THAT

HAD GONE WRONG.

I NEVER FELT FEAR LIKE

THIS BEFORE.

I HAD BEEN FREE-BASING

COCAINE SINCE '82.

MY LIFE HAD TAKEN A DRASTIC

SPIRAL DOWN.

I BEGAN TO DO THINGS THAT

WOULDN'T BOTHER MY

CONSCIENCE, THAT NORMALLY

WOULD HAVE.

Reporter: SELLING DRUGS

AND STEALING HAD BECOME A

WAY OF LIFE.

WHEN HE WAS 30, KIM WAS

SENTENCED TO PRISON FOR

STRONG-ARMED ROBBERY.

WHILE INSIDE, HE SOUGHT TO

CLEAN UP HIS LIFE.

I DIDN'T WANT DRUGS BACK

IN MY LIFE.

IN MY MIND AND MY HEART, I

DIDN'T WANT THEM.

Reporter: RELEASED A

YEAR AND A HALF LATER, HE

WENT HOME WITH HOPES OF

STAYING CLEAN.

BUT AS HARD AS HE TRIED, THE

OLD HABIT CAME BACK.

IT TOOK ME HOSTAGE, AND I

SEEN ME HANDCUFFED TO THIS

ADDICTION.

I COULDN'T FIND A WAY OUT.

I TRIED EVERYTHING, DETOX

CENTERS.

I TRIED REHABILITATION,

12-STEP PROGRAMS, A NUMBER

OF TIMES, BUT I JUST NEVER

COULD GET MYSELF OUT.

IT GOT WORSE.

Reporter: HE CONTINUED

RUNNING STREET HUSTLES.

ONE NIGHT IN DECEMBER, A

DISPUTE FLARED UP AT A DRUG

DEALERS.

A GUY WENT INTO HIS COAT

AND PULLED OUT A .38

CALIBER.

BLOOD WAS COMING OUT OF MY

EARS AND THEN MY NOSE.

AND MY CHEST WAS FULL OF

BLOOD.

DEATH WAS IN THE CAR WITH

ME.

HE WAS RIDING WITH ME.

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR ME

TO CLOSE MY EYES.

I BEGAN TO CALL ON GOD TO

SAVE MY LIFE.

I TOLD HIM I WAS SORRY, AND

THAT I WAS SORRY FOR DOING

THE THINGS I DID, SHAMING MY

FAMILY NAME.

AND I ASKED HIM TO COME INTO

MY LIFE AND JUST SAVE ME.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO HELL.

I DON'T WANT TO DIE.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO HELL.

Reporter: JIM PULLED

INTO A PARKING LOT WHERE HE

PASSED OUT.

A SECURITY GUARD FOUND HIM

AND CALLED 9-1-1.

WHEN I WOKE UP, I WAS IN

THE AMBULANCE, AND THE

PARAMEDICS -- ONE PARAMEDIC

WAS TAKING THE OXYGEN MASK

OFF MY FACE.

HE WAS LOOKING DOWN AT ME.

AND HE WAS SPEAKING TO THE

OTHER PARAMEDIC, AND HE SAID

HE IS NOT BREATHING.

THE OTHER PARAMEDIC SHOOK

HIS HEAD AND PUT HIS EYES

DOWN.

MY EYES GOT SO HEAVY.

SO HEAVY THAT NO MATTER HOW

HARD I TRIED TO OPEN THEM,

IT SEEMED LIKE SOMEBODY HAD

A HOLD OF THEM PULLING THEM

DOWN, AND THE DARKNESS BEGAN

TO COME AGAIN.

Reporter: AT THE

HOSPITAL, DOCTORS FOUGHT TO

SAVE HIS LIFE.

THEY MANAGED TO STABILIZE

HIM, BUT COULDN'T REMOVE THE

BULLET BECAUSE IT WAS TOO

CLOSE TO HIS SPINE.

I WAS JUST SO GLAD THAT

JESUS GAVE ME OTHER CHANCE.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT AROUND

NOW.

Reporter: AS HE

RECOVERED, HE WENT TO A

REVIVAL AT HIS SISTER'S

CHURCH.

AFTER THE SERVICE, KIM WENT

FORWARD FOR PRAYER FROM THE

MINISTER.

HE LAID HIS HAND ON MY

CHEST, AND HE BEGAN TO

PRAY.

HE SAID, GO ON HOME NOW.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE

ALL RIGHT.

Reporter: BACK AT THE

HOUSE, KIM GREW RESTLESS.

I FELT A WARMTH COME OVER

MY BODY.

I NEVER FELT A FEELING LIKE

THIS IN MY LIFE.

WHEN I GOT INTO MY BEDROOM,

I SAT DOWN AT THE EDGE OF MY

BED, AND I GRABBED MY SOCKS

AND I BENT OVER TO PUT MY

SOCK ON, AND I FELT

SOMETHING HIT ME IN THE

FRONT OF MY MOUTH.

AND I JUST HELD MY HAND,

COVERING MY MOUTH.

AND I WAS LIKE UH-OH.

I EASED MY HAND OFF TO JUST

PEEK AT IT, AND I SAW THE

BULLET SITTING IN MY HAND.

AND I JUST BEGAN TO SCREAM

AND HOLLER.

I COULDN'T SAY WORDS.

I WAS JUST SCREAMING AND

HOLLERING.

Reporter: THAT NIGHT

KIM SHARED HIS MIRACULOUS

STORY BACK AT THE CHURCH.

AS WORD OF HIS TESTIMONY

SPREAD, HE WAS ASKED TO

SPEAK AT CHURCHES AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

HOWEVER, A NEW PROBLEM

AROSE.

THE PRESSURE OF HAVING TO

LIVE RIGHT BECAUSE EVERYBODY

IS WATCHING ME.

I HAVE TO WALK AS THOUGH I'M

WALKING ON EGG SHELLS.

AND I'VE GOT TO SAY THE

RIGHT THING ALL THE TIME.

I'VE GOT TO DO THE RIGHT

THING ALL THE TIME.

AND THAT BEGAN TO BE A

PRESSURE ON ME.

AND SO EVENTUALLY I ENDED UP

BACK WHERE I STARTED.

SOMETIMES WE THINK THAT

PEOPLE GIVE THEIR LIFE TO

THE LORD, THAT THINGS SHOULD

CHANGE OVERNIGHT.

Reporter: FOR SEVEN

MORE YEARS, KIM STRUGGLED

WITH HIS ADDICTIONS.

I FOUND MYSELF GETTING

ANGRY WITH GOD.

WHY WOULD YOU ALLOW ME TO

COME BACK HERE.

I BEGAN TO GIVE UP.

WOW, WHAT WAS IT ALL FOR?

COULD I EVER BE DELIVERED?

COULD HE DELIVER ME?

Reporter: AT AN

ARRAIGNMENT FOR FAILURE TO

APPEAR IN COURT, KIM HEARD

ABOUT TEEN CHALLENGE.

HE DECIDED TO ENROLL IN

THEIR YEAR-LONG DRUG

RECOVERY PROGRAM.

HOPING IT WOULD BE THE

CHANGE HE NEEDED.

I READ THE BIBLE

CONSTANTLY.

IT WAS THERE THAT I LEARNED

HOW TO HAVE AN INTIMATE

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD.

HE BEGAN TO SHOW ME HOW TO

BE DISCIPLINED AND HOW TO

ALLOW THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO

OVERTAKE MY LIFE.

AND TO LET HIM HAVE THE

GREATER INFLUENCE IN MY

LIFE.

IT WAS JUST SO REAL FOR ME.

I WAS FREE.

AND THE ENEMY DIDN'T HAVE NO

POWER OVER ME.

SATAN DIDN'T HAVE NO POWER

OVER ME.

DRUGS DIDN'T HAVE NO POWER

OVER ME.

Reporter: KIM HAS BEEN

LIVING DRUG-FREE SINCE

2001.

I KNOW THE STRUGGLE I

WENT THROUGH, GOD IS GOING

TO USE THAT TO SHOW LOVE.

THAT YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE

GOING THROUGH SOMETHING.

THAT HE KNOWS ALL ABOUT IT,

AND THAT HE IS A DELIVERER.

WHATEVER THE SITUATION IS

GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT

NOW, GOD IS ABLE.

AND I'M A LIVING WITNESS.

I'M A LIVING EXAMPLE THAT

GOD IS ABLE TO TURN IT

AROUND, AND GOD IS ABLE TO

DEFEAT THAT THING BECAUSE

GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU

THAN ANYTHING THAT IS IN

THIS WORLD.

Pat: YOU KNOW

SOMETHING?

HELL -- HELL IS REAL.

WHEN YOU DIE, YOU'RE GOING

TO ONE OF TWO PLACES.

YOU'RE EITHER GOING TO GO TO

HEAVEN AND BE WITH THE LORD

FOREVER, OR YOU'RE GOING TO

HELL FOREVER.

YOU SEE, YOU HAVE A SPIRIT,

AND YOUR SPIRIT LIVES ON.

IT DOESN'T DIE WITH YOUR

BODY.

AND KIM KNEW THAT IN THAT

DRUG DEAL THAT WENT BAD,

WHEN HE GOT SHOT AND HE WAS

BLEEDING, HE KNEW HE WAS

GOING TO DIE, AND HE KNEW

EXACTLY WHERE HE WAS GOING.

HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO

HELL.

HE CRIED OUT TO THE LORD,

AND GOD HEARD HIS PRAYER.

YOU SEE, GOD WILL HEAR YOUR

PRAYER.

HE'LL LISTEN TO YOU AND HEAR

YOUR PRAYER.

IF YOU CRY OUT TO THE LORD.

KIM DIDN'T COME AND SAY I'M

NOT WORTHY AND ALL OF THIS

STUFF.

HE JUST SAID, GOD, SAVE ME.

DON'T LET ME GO TO HELL.

AND THE LORD HEARD HIS

PRAYER.

IT TOOK A WHILE BECAUSE THAT

DRUG WAS VERY POWERFUL AND

HAD ITS HOLD ON HIM, BUT HE

FINALLY CAME FREE OF IT

BECAUSE HE TRUSTED IN THE

LORD.

NOW, LET ME ASK YOU, IF YOUR

LIFE WERE GOING TO BE

TERMINATED IN THE NEXT 10

MINUTES, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

WELL, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT YOU

OUGHT TO DO.

WHAT YOU OUGHT TO DO RIGHT

N NOW IS TO MAKE A DECISION

THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF

ETERNITY.

AND YOU SAY TO GOD, LORD, I

WANT TO BE WITH YOU IN

HEAVEN FOREVER.

I DON'T WANT TO GO TO HELL.

I DON'T WANT TO BE I IN

ETERNAL TORMENT.

I DON'T WANT TO SPEND

ETERNITY IN EVERLASTING

TORMENT.

BUT I WANT TO BE WITH YOU.

AND I BELIEVE THAT YOU DIED

TO TAKE THE PRICE FOR MY SIN

AND TO OPEN THE WAY TO

HEAVEN.

AND I RECEIVE YOU AS

SAVIOR.

AND WHEN YOU DO THAT, GOD

WILL HEAR YOU.

AND THE PEOPLE SAYS, WHOEVER

WILL CALL UPON THE NAME OF

THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.

NOW, I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH

ME RIGHT NOW.

MANY, MANY THOUSANDS HAVE,

AND I WANT YOU TO JOIN THAT

GREAT COMPANY.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD

WHEREVER YOU ARE, AND PRAY

THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, I DON'T WANT TO GO TO

HELL.

I WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN.

LORD, I KNOW YOU DIED SO

THAT I COULD SPEND ETERNITY

IN HEAVEN WITH YOU.

SO, LORD, RIGHT NOW I TURN

AWAY FROM SIN.

I TURN AWAY FROM THE LIFE

I'VE BEEN LIVING.

AND I OPEN MY HEART TO YOU.

AND I ASK YOU TO COME IN.

TAKE OVER MY LIFE, LORD

JESUS.

LIVE IN ME.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON,

I'LL LIVE FOR YOU AND I'LL

SERVE YOU.

THANK YOU, LORD, THAT YOU'VE

HEARD MY PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU, LORD, THAT

YOU'VE COME INTO MY HEART.

NOW, I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW, FOR THOSE WHO

PRAYED WITH ME.

FATHER, MAY YOUR ANOINTING

POWER TOUCH EVERYONE WHO

PRAYED WITH ME JUST THEN.

FILL THEM WITH THE HOLY

SPIRIT FROM THIS MOMENT ON

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

NOW, I'VE GOT SOMETHING I

WANT TO GIVE YOU.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, YOU

WANT TO KNOW WHAT DO YOU DO

NEXT?

HOW DO YOU GET STARTED?

SO I SPENT SOME TIME IN OUR

RECORDING STUDIO SEVERAL

YEARS AGO, AND I MADE A

COMPACT DISC, AND IT IS

CALLED "A NEW DAY" IT HAS

ABOUT 70 SOMETHING MINUTES

OF VERY COMPREHENSIVE

TEACHING OF WHAT HAPPENS

NEXT.

I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU FREE,

IF YOU JUST GIVE ME A CALL.

JUST SAY, I PRAYED WITH PAT,

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW

THAT I AM BORN AGAIN.

I HAVE GIVEN MY HEART TO

JESUS.

QUICKLY, GO TO YOUR

TELEPHONE.

IT IS 1-800-759-0700.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO LOVES

YOU VERY, VERY MUCH.

1-800-759-0700.

DON'T DELAY.

CALL NOW.

IF THE LINE IS BUSY FOR ANY

REASON -- I DON'T THINK IT

WILL BE, BUT IF IT IS BUSY,

I WANT YOU TO BE PATIENT AND

CALL BACK.

WE'LL BE HERE ALL DAY LONG.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, WE'LL

TAKE YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

HARRY SAYS, "THE BIBLE SAYS

THERE ISN'T SADNESS IN

HEAVEN.

DOES THAT MEAN OUR DECEASED

LOVED ONES CAN SEE OUR

SUCCESSES BUT NOT OUR

FAILURES?"

WE'LL ANSWER THAT AND MORE

AFTER THIS.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

AN APPARENT SUICIDE BOMBING

AT THE U.S. EMBASSY IN

TURKEY TODAY.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS QUOTES

A POLICE OFFICIAL SAYING THE

BOMBER SET OFF AN EXPLOSIVE

AT THE EMBASSY ENTRANCE

INSIDE A SECURITY CHECK

PINT.

POINT.

A SECURITY GUARD AND THE

BOMBER WERE KILLED.

THERE IS NO CLAIM OF

RESPONSIBILITY.

BUT KURDISH REBELS AND

ISLAMIC ACTIVISTS ARE ACTIVE

IN THAT AREA.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

PROVIDING MICROSOFT LOANS TO

HELP STRUGGLING FAMILIES

AROUND THE WORLD.

A FAMILY OF NOMADIC HERDS

MAN IN NIGERIA WANTED TO

MOVE CLOSER TO THE CAPITAL

SO THE FATHER COULD WORK.

HE WAS HAVING DIFFICULTY

KEEPING FOOD ON THE TABLE

AND COULDN'T SEND HIS

CHILDREN TO SCHOOL.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

PROVIDED A GOAT, AND IT

PROVIDES ENOUGH MILK FOR THE

FAMILY TO STAY HEALTHY.

AND HE CAN SELL THEOFF

SPRING TO PAY BACK THE LOAN

AND TO SEND HIS CHILDREN TO

SCHOOL.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Terry: WELL, YOU'VE

BEEN KIND TO SEND IN YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS, AND WE

WANT TO TAKE A FEW MOMENTS

TO ADDRESS THOSE.

PAT, THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

HARRY, WHO SAYS, "THE BIBLE

SAYS THERE IS NO SADNESS IN

HEAVEN, NO TEARS, NO PAIN,

ETC.

CONSIDERING THIS, CAN WE

ASSUME THAT OUR LOVED ONES

IN HEAVEN CAN SEE OUR HAPPY

TIMES AND SUCCESSES, BUT

THEIR SHIELDED FROM SEEING

OUR SORROWS AND FAILURES?"

Pat: WE CAN'T ASSUME

ANY SUCH THING.

I THINK WE CAN ASSUME THEY

CAN'T SEE ANYTHING WE'RE

DOING.

THEY KNOW WE'RE THERE.

THE RICH MAN AND LAZARUS --

THE RICH MAN SAYS, I'VE GOT

BROTHERS, CAN I GO TALK TO

THEM?

THE DEAD PEOPLE AREN'T

LOOKING IN ON YOU AND ME,

AND LOOKING IN OUR BEDROOMS

AND SEE WHAT WE'RE DOING OR

LOOKING TO SEE WHAT WE'RE

EATING FOR DINNER.

YOU CANNOT ASSUME THEY KNOW

OUR HAPPINESS OR SORROW.

THERE WILL BE NO SORROW,

PAIN, TEARS FOR US BECAUSE

WE'LL BE HAPPY, PERIOD.

Terry: WE JUST DID THIS

WHOLE D.V.D. ON LIFE AFTER

DEATH.

THE PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT

GOING TO HEAVEN ARE SO

OVERWHELMED WITH THE MAG

MAGNIFICENCE AND THE GLORY

AND THE BEAUTY, I THINK

THEY'RE ALL THERE.

Pat: I THINK THAT'S

IT.

YOU'RE LIVING IN THE

PRESENCE OF THE LORD AND

YOU'RE NOT CONCERNED ABOUT

ANY OTHER THING.

BUT, NO, YOU'RE NOT LOOKING

INTO THE SUFFERING OF

PEOPLE.

THAT WAS A WRONG

ASSUMPTION.

Terry: THIS IS A VIEWER

WHO SAYS, "I'M FEELING A

DEEP CONVICTION THAT MY WALK

WITH THE LORD ISN'T AS SOLID

AS I SENSE IT SHOULD BE.

HOWEVER, I FIND IT DIFFICULT

TO STAY AND THE WORLD

REGULARLY, TO TAKE TIME

DAILEY TO GET AWAY AND PRAY,

AND TO BE STILL AND BE WITH

THE LORD.

I SINCERELY WANT TO GET ON

THE RIGHT PATH SO I GET MORE

IN TUNE WITH THE LORD.

WHERE DO I START?

HOW DO I DISCONNECT WITH THE

WORLD LONG ENOUGH TO GET MY

LIFE RIGHT?"

Pat: WHEN I WAS A YOUNG

CHRISTIAN, JUST STARTING

OUT, I LEFT BUSINESS AND WAS

IN SEMINARY.

WE HAD FAMILY AT THE TIME.

WE HAD THREE SMALL

CHILDREN.

YOU KNOW WHAT SMALL KIDS

DO -- WHEN THEY WAKE UP IN

THE MORNING, THERE IS AN

AWFUL LOT OF CONFUSION.

THEY CRY AND THEY WANT YOU

TO CHANGE THEIR DIAPERS AND

ALL OF THAT STUFF.

ALL RIGHT.

I THEN WAS STUDYING IN

SEMINARY TO TRY TO GET READY

FOR WHATEVER GOD HAD FOR

ME.

I WAS WORKING AT A CHURCH.

I HAD ALL KINDS OF STUFF.

I HAD TO COMMUTE BACK AND

FORTH TO NEW YORK CITY.

AND WHAT DID I DO?

I HAD TO GET UP EARLY IN THE

MORNING.

I HAD TO GET UP AHEAD OF

THOSE CHILDREN.

WHICH MEANT I HAD TO GET UP

ABOUT 5:30 IN THE MORNING,

OR WHATEVER IT WAS, AND

SPEND TIME IN THE BIBLE,

SEEKING THE LORD, PRAYING

AND STUDYING.

AND THEN THE DAY WOULD

START, AND I WAS OKAY.

I'M SORRY YOU SAY THE

WORLD -- THE DAY GETS AHEAD

OF YOU.

YES, IT DOES.

IT WILL GET AHEAD OF OF ALL

OF US.

WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO BEAT

THE DAY.

YOU HAVE TO GET UP EARLY.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, EARLY

WILL I SEEK YOU.

AND THAT'S THE ANSWER.

SO SET A TIME.

SET YOUR ALARM.

AND YOU'LL FEEL SLEEPY AND

TIRED AND YOU DON'T WANT TO

DO IT.

IF YOU DRINK TEA OR COFFEE,

HAVE A CUP OF COFFEE OR TEA,

WHATEVER, AND GET UP AND

SEEK THE LORD.

READ THE BIBLE.

LET THE BIBLE SPEAK TO YOU.

AND PRAY AND TALK TO THE

LORD.

TELL HIM YOUR PROBLEMS.

AND ROLL THESE BUENAS TARDES

OTHESE BURDENS ON TO YOU.

SOME PEOPLE THINK AT NIGHT

IS BETTER, BUT I THINK EARLY

IN THE MORNING.

Terry: IT BECAME A

LIFE-LONG HABIT FOR YOU?

Pat: IT SURE DID.

MY DAY WOULD BE HORRIBLE --

IF THE DAY STARTS OUT

WITHOUT HAVING SOME TIME

WITH THE LORD, IT IS REALLY

A MESS.

Terry: DIANA SAYS, "I'M

A BELIEVER, AND MY BOYFRIEND

IS A NON-BELIEVER.

WE'VE BEEN TOGETHER FOR FIVE

MONTHS.

IN THE BIBLE, IT SAYS WE

SHALL NOT BE UNEQUALLY

YOLKED.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT WILL BE

THE CONSEQUENCES IF I

CONTINUE MY RELATIONSHIP

WITH MY NON-BELIEVER

BOYFRIEND?"

Pat: YOU WILL HAVE

FIGHTS.

YOUR BOYFRIEND WILL ASK YOU

TO DO THINGS YOU DON'T THINK

ARE RIGHT.

HE WON'T UNDERSTAND THE

BUSINESS OF BEING LED BY THE

SPIRIT.

HE WON'T UNDERSTAND THAT YOU

THINK YOU OUT TO TITHE AS A

FAMILY, THAT YOU WANT TO GO

TO CHURCH.

AND YOU'LL BE CONSTANTLY

STRUGGLING.

BILLY GRAHAM SAID IT VERY

WISELY.

HE SAID, SOMEBODY WHO

MARRIES THE UNBELIEVER TAKES

THE DEVIL AS HIS

FATHER-IN-LAW.

I THINK THAT IS WHAT IT IS.

THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT SUBJECT

TO THE LAW OF GOD, AND YOU

ARE.

SO YOU'VE GOT A TOTALLY

DIFFERENT SET OF PRINCIPLES

AND STANDARDS TO LIVE BY.

AND YOU WANT FELLOWSHIP.

YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH YOUR

HUSBAND, WITH YOUR WIFE, THE

DEEP THINGS IN YOUR HEART.

I WAS TALKING TO THE LORD,

AND HE SAID -- AND IF THE

OTHER SPOUSE IS SITTING

THERE LAUGHING AT YOU

SAYING, DON'T BELIEVE IN ALL

OF THAT GARBAGE.

BEFORE LONG, IT WILL DEADEN

YOUR SPIRIT AND YOU'LL BE

MISERABLE INSIDE.

THE SOONER YOU BREAK THAT

RELATIONSHIP OFF AND FIND

SOMEBODY ELSE, THE BETTER

YOU'LL BE.

DO NOT BE UNEQUALLY YOLKED

TOGETHER WITH UNBELIEVERS.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS,

AND THE BIBLE IS RIGHT.

Terry: ANN SAYS, "CAN

YOU TELL ME THE SCRIPTURE

BASIS FOR WORSHIPPING ON

SUNDAY INSTEAD SATURDAY?"

Pat: NO, I CAN'T.

THE JEWISH SABBATH STARTS

FRIDAY NIGHT AND GOES

THROUGH SATURDAY.

SATURDAY WAS THE DAY OF REST

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

THE REASON -- THE BIBLE SAYS

ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK

THEY WENT TO THE TOMB AND

THE TOMB WAS EMPTY.

AND HE HAD RISEN AND THERE

WERE ANGELS.

SO THE EARLY CHURCHES BEGAN

MEETING ON THE FIRST DAY OF

THE WEEK, WHICH IS SUNDAY.

THAT'S HOW IT HAPPENED.

IT IS SCRIPTURE BASES.

THE BIBLE CLEARLY TELLS US

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE

SUBJECT TODAY'S AND WEEKS

AND MONTHS AND YEARS AND

SEASONS.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE FREE

FROM THAT.

GOD IS A SPIRIT.

WORSHIP HIM, AND WORSHIP IN

SPIRIT AND TRUTH.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT DAY

YOU'RE WORSHIPPING HIM.

YOU WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND

TRUTH.

Terry: RUSS SAYS, "I

HAVE HEARD THAT ONE OF THE

REASONS FOR THE FLOOD IS TO

RID THE WORLD OF THE NEFELIN

-- WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

Pat: NONSENSE.

WTHIS RACE OF EVIL BEINGS

AND THE LORD HAD TO FLOOD

THE EARTH -- I'VE HEARD SOME

OF THE BIBLE TEACHERS SAY

THAT.

THE BIBLE SAYS THE EARTH WAS

FILLED WITH EVIL, AND THE

MEN'S HEART WAS ON EVIL

CONTINUOUSLY.

ALL OF THE PEOPLE ON THE

EARTH WERE GIVEN OVER TO

MURDER AND ROBBERY AND RAPE

AND LUST AND ALL THESE KIND

OF THINGS.

THE PEOPLE WERE, AND GOD

SAYS, I WILL DESTROY THEM.

I REGRET THAT I'VE MADE

THEM.

AND I WILL TAKE NOAH AND HIS

FAMILY AND START NOTHING

NEW.

BUT NOTHING IN THERE ABOUT

NEFALIN.

BUT IT MAKES AN INTRIGUING

STORY.

YOU'VE GOT A GUY TEACHING ON

TELEVISION, MAN, IT MUST BE

THE FALLEN ANGELS.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE

BIBLE THAT SUPPORTS IT.

IT IS NOT IN THE BIBLE.

AND I'M TALKING ABOUT THE

BIBLE.

Terry: REBECCA

SAYS, "PAT, I WAS JUST

STUDYING IN THE BOC O BOOK

OF JOB, 1 AND 2, WHEN I HAD

THIS THOUGHT, KNOWING THAT

GOD IS HOLY AND SEPARATES US

FROM HIM, WHY DID GOD ALLOW

SATAN COME INTO THE LORD'S

PRESENCE, MUCH LESS TALK TO

HIM.

I WOULD THINK HE WOULDN'T

WASTE HIS TIME NOT TO

CONVERT WITH SATAN."

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS THE

SONS OF GOD.

WE USE THE TERM SATAN, BUT

HIS NAME WAS LUCIFER, WHICH

MEANT THE LIGHT ONE.

REMEMBER, JESUS WASN'T

CREATED.

HE IS GOD.

BUT SATAN WAS THE MOST

CREATED BEING, AND HE WAS

AMONG THE SONS OF GOD.

THE BIBLE IN REVELATION

TALKS ABOUT THE DEVIL BEING

THROWN DOWN TO EARTH BECAUSE

HIS DAYS WERE SHORT.

BUT IN THE TIME OF JOB, HE

HAD ACCESS INTO THE COUNCILS

OF GOD.

YOU WOULD THINK GOD WOULD BE

DISGUSTED WITH HIM BECAUSE

HE ALREADY HAD REBELLION

AGAINST GOD, BUT HE DIDN'T.

SO HE HAD ACCESS, AND GOD

SAID TO HIM, WHERE HAVE YOU

BEEN?

AND HE SAID, WELL, I'VE BEEN

WALKING UP AND DOWN THE

EARTH.

HE WAS OUT THERE TRYING TO

TEST MAN, AND GOD ALLOWED

HIM, AND HAS ALLOWED HIM

OVER THE YEARS, TO WALK

FREELY SO THAT THERE WOULD

BE A TESTING OF THE FAITH

AND THE ALLEGIANCE OF

MANKIND TO GOD.

AND IF THERE WERE NO TESTER

OR TEMPTER, THEN WHERE WOULD

BE THE VICTORY?

IN ORDER TO HAVE A VICTORY,

YOU HAVE TO HAVE A BATTLE.

GOD HAS ALLOWED SATAN TO

HAVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

FREEDOM.

BUT HE SEVERELY

CIRCUMSCRIBED IT.

AND GOD SAYS THE DAY WILL

COME WHEN THE ANGELS WILL

CAST HIM INTO THE PIT, AND

HE WILL BE TORMENTED FOREVER

AND EVER.

THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY.

Terry: THAT'S NOT THE

PLAN FOR US.

Pat: NOT THE PLAN FOR

US.

BUT, YES, SOMEWHERE ALONG

THE WAY, IN THE COUNCILS OF

GOD, THE SONS OF GOD CAME

TOGETHER, AND HE WAS ONE OF

THEM.

AND THE TIME CAME THAT HE

WAS THROWN OUT OF HEAVEN.

BUT MAYBE JOB WAS -- MAYBE

THE SCENE SET THERE WAS

PRIOR TO THAT.

IT MUST HAVE BEEN.

Terry: WE APPRECIATE

ALL OF THE QUESTIONS THAT

HAVE COME IN.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WHEN KIM SAVAGE DISCOVERED A

GOLFBALL-SIZED LUMP IN HER

THROAT, SHE DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY TO GET IT

CHECKED OUT.

SO KIM DID THE ONLY THING

SHE FLEW T KNEW TO DO, SHE

PRAYED.

I HAD A LUMP IN MY

THROAT.

ATIMANY TIME I ATE

SOMETHING, IT WAS AN

OBSTRUCTION IN MY THROAT.

IN MY MIND, THINKING OF ALL

OF THE HORRIBLE THINGS IT

COULD BE.

AND I WAS CONCERNED BECAUSE

JANUARY MY DEDUCTIBLE

STARTED OVER IN MY

INSURANCE.

$2500.

I WAS THINKING, IT WILL BE A

HUGE EXPENSE IF I GO TO THE

DOCTOR.

I HAD NOWHERE TO GO BUT TO

TRUST GOD.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS DOING.

I WAS GOING, GOD, I NEED

YOUR HELP WITH THIS.

EVERY SINGLE DAY I WATCH

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT WAS A TYPICAL DAY, I WAS

WATCHING IT, AND I WAS

PRAYING ALONE, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN WITH TERRY MEEUWSEN'S

WORD CAME FORTH.

Terry: WHEN YOU

SWALLOW, IT IS ALMOST LIKE

YOU HAVE TO SWALLOW OVER

SOMETHING IN YOUR THROAT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT

GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION.

I WAS LIKE -- IT TOOK MY

BREATH.

I WAS, LIKE, THANK YOU,

LORD.

THANK YOU.

I WAS SO IN AWE.

I KNOW IT CAN HAPPEN, BUT

WHEN IT REALLY HAPPENS T TO

YOU -- HE SAW ME IN MY

DISTRESS AND MY TIME OF

NEED.

I HAD NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.

THAT WAS IT, HIM AND I.

I WAS TELLING EVERYBODY.

I WAS, LIKE, LET ME TELL YOU

WHAT HAPPENED.

AND I'M NOBODY SPECIAL.

I'M NOT SOME SUPER SPIRITUAL

BEING.

I'M JUST A GIRL THAT WAS IN

A POSITION THAT I HAD

NOWHERE ELSE TO GO.

I HAD TO TRUST HIM.

AND HE MET ME IN MY GREATEST

TIME OF FEAR.

IN A NANO SECOND THAT

DISSIPATED.

AND IF HE'LL DO IT FOR ME,

HE'LL DO IT FOR ANYBODY.

Terry: HE REALLY WILL,

AND THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO

PRPRAY FOR YOU TODAY.

WE KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE

YOUR OWN SITUATIONS, YOUR

OWN NEEDS, THE THINGS THAT

ARE HEAVEN ON YOUR HEART.

GOD HEARS AND SEES ALL OF

THAT, AND HE WANTS TO STEP

RIGHT INTO THE MIDDLE OF

THAT FOR YOU, LIKE HE DID

FOR KIM.

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU.

THIS IS BEV, AND SHE BEGAN

TO ITCH ALL OVER HER BODY.

THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT

CONTINUED DAILY FOR YEARS.

SHE CONSULTED WITH SEVERAL

DOCTORS, AND TRIED REMEDIES,

SOAPS, DETERGENTS.

NOTHING WORKED.

THEN ONE DAY SHE WAS

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

PAT, SHE HEARD YOU SAY THIS:

"THERE ARE THOSE WITH

ITCHING RIGHT NOW, GOD IS

SETTING YOU FREE.

YOUR SKIN IS GOING TO BE

BETTER THAN EVER.

SHE CLAIMED THAT AND WITHIN

24 HOURS, THE ITCHING

STOPPED AND HAS NOT

RETURNED."

Pat: FOLKS, GOD IS

ALMIGHTY.

HE CREATED YOU, HE MADE YOU,

HE UNDERSTANDS YOU, AND HE

CAN HEAL YOU.

HE SAID, EVERYONE WHO CAME

TO THE APOSTLES WERE

HEALED.

EVERY SINGLE ONE.

THAT WAS THE WAY IT WAS IN

THE EARLY CHURCH, SO WHY NOT

NOW.

SO TERRY AND I ARE GOING TO

JOIN HANDS TOGETHER.

FATHER, I JOIN WITH MY DEAR

SISTER IN CHRIST, AND WE

JOIN WITH THOSE IN THIS

AUDIENCE, AND WE PRAY RIGHT

NOW, LORD, FOR THE POWER OF

GOD TO COME INTO THEIR BEING

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

RIGHT NOW THERE ARE SOME

CROOKED LIMBS THAT ARE BEING

STRAIGHTENED.

GOD IS REACHING DOWN AND

STRAIGHTENING OUT LIMBS.

BONES ARE LITERALLY BEING

REFORMED RIGHT NOW AS WE

SPEAK, IN THE NAME OF

JESUS.

Terry: AND EVEN BONES

IN THE JAW LINE.

THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE

SUFFERING WITH T.M.J., AND

GOD IS REALIGNING YOUR JAW

AS WE'RE PRAYING RIGHT NOW.

Pat: THERE IS A LOT OF

MUCOUS AND PHLEGM IN YOUR

THROAT, AND COUGH THAT UP

AND YOU'LL BE FREE AND ABLE

TO BREATHE NORMALLY.

LORD, BLESS PEOPLE.

TAKE AWAY THEIR FEAR AND

THEIR DISTRESS AND TORMENT

IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

YOU ARE FREE.

AMEN.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING

WITH US.

WE APPRECIATE YOU.

AND, LORD WILLING, WE'LL BE

BACK ON MONDAY WITH ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JAMES 4: 8: "DRAW

NEAR TO GOD, AND HE WILL

DRAW NEAR TO YOU."

WE'VE GOT TELEPHONES

AVAILABLE, EVEN THOUGH THIS

PROGRAM ISN'T ON THE AIR IN

YOUR AREA, THE PHONES ARE

STILL THERE SO YOU CAN CALL

IF YOU HAVE A NEED.

HAVE YOU A GREAT WEEKEND,

AND WE'LL SEE YOU ON

MONDAY.

BYE-BYE.
