ARE YOU SAVING ENOUGH FOR

YOUR

RETIREMENT?

47% STAND SOME DECENT CHANCE

OF

RUNNING SHORT ON RETIREMENT.

HOW TO LIVE ON THE GOLDEN

YEARS IN

THE BLACK.

A HOTSHOT INVESTOR LOSES

MILLIONS.

I SPUN OUT OF CONTROL. IT

GOT TO THE

POINT OF NO RETURN.

PLUS A FAMILY RIDES A DEADLY

TORNADO

FROM THE CENTER THE STORM.

WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS

HAPPENING

WAS HAPPENING RIGHT THEN.

Gordon: WELCOME TO THE "700

CLUB".

LET'S GOT TO THE NEWS DESK FOR

TODAY'S

TOP HEADLINES.

THE COURT ANNOUNCES THE

CHANGE TO

MARRIAGE. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS

THE NEXT

ISSUE OVER THE BATTLE IN

MARRIAGE.

CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS

WARNS THE

RULE COULD OPEN THE DOOR TO

OTHER FORMS

OF MARRIAGE LIKE POLYGAMY.

JENNIFER HAS

THIS STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

OUTSIDE THE COURT IT'S BACK

TO

BUSINESS AS USUAL BUT NOW

CHANGED THE

WAY PEOPLE ARE TREATED.

IT'S FROM CALIFORNIA TO

CHICAGO EVEN

ALASKA MADE NEWS. THE COURT

DECISION

DOESN'T TAKE EFFECT FOR A FEW

WEEKS.

EVEN THE STATES THAT DIDN'T

ALLOW SAME

SEX MARRIAGE LIKE GEORGIA, SAME

SEX

COUPLES WERE ALLOWED TO BE WED.

I THINK WE SHOULD DO WHAT

MAKES US

HAPPY.

MEANWHILE, IT WON'T COMPLY

WITH THE

LEGAL OBJECTIONS.

SOME FEAR THE RULING ON

MARRIAGE

WILL BE TO SEEK TO PUNISH

CHRISTIANS

WHO SEEK TO WORK AND RAYS THEIR

FAMILIES WITH THEIR FAITH.

IT'S THE FREEDOM TO LIVE OUR

OUT

YOUR FAITH IN EVERYDAY LIFE,

MONDAY

THROUGH SUNDAY. IN THE

MARKETPLACE, AT

SCHOOL, AT HOME, AT YOUR

CHARITY.

MANY OPENS THE DOOR FOR A

NUMBER OF

UNCONVENTIONAL MARRIAGES TO

EVENTUALLY

WIN FAVOR.

IF CALIFORNIA WERE IS TO

REDEFINE

MARRIAGE FOR POLYMYARIAN AND

POLYGAMY.

THE WHAT IF REALITY ON

MARRIAGES

WILL BE ACROSS STATES AND WHILE

THEY

CELEBRATED THE RULING, SOME

EXPRESSED

SOME LEVEL OF DISAPPOINTMENT.

I THINK IT'S GOING AFTER OUR

1ST

AMENDMENT RIGHT AND I THINK

IT'S WRONG

FOR OUR GOVERNMENT TO FORCE

BUSINESSES,

PASTORS, CHURCHES TO PERFORM

WEDDING

CEREMONY THAT VIOLATE OUR

RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS.

IF YOU HAVE A MOSQUE OR

SYNAGOGUE

AND YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT

LOSING YOUR

STATE.

IF WE HAVE A NEW LEVEL OF

DISCRIMINATION.

THE PROBLEM IS THE

GOVERNMENT IS

GOING TO PUT THE PEOPLE'S FAITH

IN AN

UNTENABLE SITUATION WHERE THEY

ARE

GOING TO HAVE TO OBEY GOD OR

GOVERNMENT.

THE GREEK AND THE NATIONAL

DEBT. THE

BANKS WILL BE CLOSED FOR 6 DAYS

STARTING TODAY. THE ECONOMIST

WORRY

THAT GREEK'S PROBLEM CAN HURT

EVERYONE

ELSE.

THE DECISION TO CLOSE BANKS

FOR SIX

BUSINESS DAYS. CASH WITHDRAWALS

ARE

ALSO RESTRICTED WITH GREEK

CITIZENS

ALLOWED TO TAKE ONLY $66 PER

DAY.

THE MOVE COMES AFTER THE

TALKS

BETWEEN GREECE AND IT'S LENDERS

WHEN

THEY CALLED FOR A SURPRISE

REFERENDUM

ON THE BAILOUT. HE'S DECIDING

ON

WHETHER TO ACCEPT THE BAILOUT

OR REJECT

THEM.

THEY HAVE A MIXED REACTION.

I HAVE NO IDEA ON WHAT WE

ARE VOTING

FOR. YES OR NO.

NOW IT'S OUR TIME TO SAY NO

BECAUSE

THEY WANT OUR LAND, THEY WANT

OUR

FREEDOM, THEY WANT OUR RIGHT,

THEY WANT

OUR PROPERTY, THEY WANT OUR

HOMELAND. I

THINK THESE PEOPLE WILL FIGHT

BACK.

THE CONCERN IS THAT GREECE

WILL

DEFAULT ON ITS DEBT AND TRY TO

SOLVE

THE CRISIS WITH THE EURO. THEY

WILL

ALLOW TO USE THE EURO. IT HAS

NOT

INCREASED THE AMOUNT OF

EMERGENCY

CREDIT. WITHOUT THAT CREDIT,

BANKS

COULD RUN OUT OF CASH. THE

GREEK

GOVERNMENT AND IT'S CREDITORS

WILL HAVE

TO NEGOTIATE AN ENTIRELY NEW

BAILOUT IN

ORDER TO KEEP GREECE FROM

DEFAULTING ON

ITS DEBT.

THOSE ARE TODAY'S TOP

STORIES FOR

CBN NEWS. GORDON AND TERRY ARE

BACK

WITH THE "700 CLUB" RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WHEN IT COMES TO

RETIREMENT,

MANY AMERICANS ARE NOT

PREPARED.

EXPERTS SAY MORE THAN HALF OF

US WON'T

HAVE MONEY TO LIVE ON. WE SENT

HEATHER

CELLS TO MAKE SURE YOU DON'T

MAKE THE

COMMON MISTAKE.

HE'S NOT ONLY 1 YEARS OLD

AND HIS

PARENTS ARE ALREADY SAVING FOR

COLLEGE.

IT'S A PRIORITY BECAUSE

THAT'S THE

WAY I WAS BROUGHT UP.

FOR MANY AMERICANS

RETIREMENT

SAVINGS IS NOT A REALITY AND

REASON

BECAUSE SOCIETY PROMOTES

SPENDING.

WE ARE ENCOURAGED TO SPEND

AND

ENCOURAGED ON THE TAX CODES.

THE SURVEY, A FIX TURE FOR

24

YEARS. THOSE THAT SAVE, DON'T

SAVE

ENOUGH.

WE HAVE ESTIMATED THAT 53%

DO NOT

SAVE ENOUGH. WHICH MAKES IT 47%

WHO

STAND SHORT OF HAVING ENOUGH

MONEY.

IF INDIVIDUALS DON'T PLAN

FOR THE

FUTURE, IT WILL COST THE REST

OF US.

AT SOME LEVEL, MANY OF THEM

AS THEY

ARE TODAY WILL BE DEPENDENT ON

SOME OF

THOSE GOVERNMENT SOCIAL SAFETY

NETS

LIKE MEDICAID AND SOCIAL

SERVICES.

THIS INCLUDES NOT SAVING

ENOUGH.

MANY PEOPLE LACK AN OVERALL

PLAN.

PEOPLE SPEND MORE TIME

PLANNING

THEIR NEXT VACATION THAN THEIR

RETIREMENT.

ANOTHER COMMON MISCONCEPTION

IS NOT

KNOWING HOW MUCH TO SAVE. THOSE

THINKING THEY NEED A HUGE

AMOUNT TO

SAVE IS THAT THEY ARE AFRAID OF

THAT

NUMBER.

MANY DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT

IT IS.

I WILL SAY TELL ME HOW LONG

YOU PLAN

TO LIVE AND WHAT YOUR EXPENSES

ARE.

PRETTY MUCH IT CAN BE

CALCULATED OUT.

CHOOSE TO SAVE.COM HAS THE

CALCULATOR THAT HELPS YOU

FIGURE OUT

THE COURSE OF ACTION.

FROM THE START OF THEIR

MARRIAGE, THEY

STARTED SAVING. THEY USED A

FINANCIAL

PLANNER TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH

THEY

NEEDED. AMANDA SAYS SHE WAS

INSPIRED BY

A FRIEND AND THE "700 CLUB".

I LEARNED A LOT FROM BEING

AROUND

PEOPLE AND EVEN PAT ON THE SHOW

SAID IF

YOU START SAVING THIS AMOUNT OF

MONEY,

25 YEARS FROM NOW YOU WILL HAVE

A NICE

NEST EGG.

THEY ADD TO THEIR SAVINGS

WHEN HE

GETS OVER TIME PAY AND THEY TRY

TO SAVE

FRUGALLY.

I BROWN BAG EVERYDAY.

AND THEY HOLD ON SAVINGS

WHEN THE

MARKET IS DOWN. MANY HAVE THE

MIND-SET

DURING THE RECESSION.

I THINK PEOPLE DON'T WANT

SAVE

BECAUSE THEY LOST IT. SINCE

2009, THE

STOCK MARKET HAS GONE UP OVER

200%.

ANOTHER TRAP IS

UNDERESTIMATING HOW

LONG YOU SHOULD WORK.

WORKERS THINK THEY ARE GOING

TO WORK

LONGER THAN RETIREES TELL US

THEY WERE

ACTUALLY ABLE TO WORK.

FOLLOW IN THESE TIPS AS LIFE

SPANS

CONTINUE TO GROW AND SAVE FOR

HEALTH

CARE BECAUSE THOSE COST ARE

TOUGH TO

ESTIMATE AND LOOK INTO A

RETIREMENT

ACCOUNT AND LASTLY KNOW WHY YOU

ARE

SAVING. PAINT A PICTURE OF YOUR

RETIREMENT. IT WILL SHARPEN

YOUR FOCUS

AND MOTIVATION. FOR THE

WILLIAMS

INVESTING IS PART OF LIVING A

GODLY

LIFE AND SAVING EVEN WHILE

STARTING

THEIR FAMILY BRINGS PEACE.

THE ONE THING WE'VE ALWAYS

SAID IS

THAT WE WILL ALWAYS BE GOOD

STEWARDS OF

WHAT GOD'S GIVEN US AND ALSO

MAINTAIN

THAT MONEY IN A WAY THAT WOULD

BE

GLORIFYING AND NOT LIVING

OUTSIDE OF

OUR MEANS.

FOR ME IT'S SO MUCH TIME AND

SO FAR

IN THE FUTURE AND GIVES US A

LOT OF

TIME TO CONTINUE TO ADD TO OUR

SAVINGS.

FOR ME THAT'S ENCOURAGEMENT.

IN FACT THEY ARE THINKING

BEYOND

RETIREMENT FOLLOWING PROVERBS

3.22 AND

LEAVING FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND

THEIR

CHILDREN. NOT JUST FOR LITTLE

ANDERSON,

BUT FOR HIS CHILDREN AS WELL.

WE CAN NEVER SAY IT ENOUGH.

YOU HAVE

TO SAVE FOR RETIREMENT. I LIKE

THIS

RULE, 80/10. YOU LIVE WITHIN

YOUR

MEANS. YOU DON'T USE CREDIT

CARDS. THEN

YOU HONOR GOD WITH YOUR 10%.

YOU HONOR

GOD AND WANT TO BE BLESSED. AND

THEN

YOU SAVE YOURSELF. THINK OF IT

A PAYING

YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE

ACCUMULATING

ASSETS FOR YOUR FUTURE. WHETHER

THAT

FUTURE IS COLLEGE FOR YOUR

CHILDREN,

WEDDINGS FOR YOUR DAUGHTER OR

YOUR OWN

RETIREMENT, WE ALL NEED TO BE

SAVING

AND THIS NEEDS TO BE PART OF

EVERY

PAYCHECK, EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

PART OF

YOUR LIFE THAT YOU ARE PAYING

FOR

YOURSELF. IF DO YOU THAT, IT

WON'T TAKE

LONG, MAYBE 10 OR 20 YEARS BUT

IN 30

YEARS, YOU HAVE A NEST EGG. IF

YOU

DON'T DO THAT, YOU WON'T HAVE

ENOUGH TO

RETIRE ON.

Terry: A MAN WINDS UP IN

FEDERAL

PRISON.

IN ORDER NOT TO HURT 1

PERSON, I WAS

HURTING SOMEONE ELSE.

HEAR HOW HE BECAME RICH

AFTER LOSING

MILLIONS. THAT'S NEXT.

Gordon: WILLIAMS JOB WAS TO

MAKE

MONEY. HE WAS GREAT AT IT. HE

POCKETED

MILLIONS ALONG THE WAY. WHEN

THE MARKET

CRASHED, WILLIAM LOST MORE THAN

HIS

BANK ACCOUNT.

IT WAS NOT UNUSUAL FOR ME TO

WORK 7

DAYS A WEEK.

HE DECIDED TO DO WHATEVER IT

TOOK TO

MAKE A LOT OF MONEY AND HAVE

THE THINGS

THAT CAME WITH IT.

I WAS THE GUY THAT HAD

EVERYTHING. I

HAD THE BIG HOUSE, BIG JOB, BIG

CAR.

EVEN THOUGH HE HAD A FAMILY,

HIS

PURSUIT OF THE DOLLAR CAME

FIRST AND HE

QUICKLY MOVED UP THE LADDER.

IN TIME I WENT FROM STOCK

BROKER TO

MR. SENIOR VICE-PRESIDENT WITH

CONTROL

AND WITH THAT CAME A LOT OF

MONEY.

HIS WIFE TOOK THE BACKSEAT

WHILE

WILLIAM TOOK OVER THE EMPIRE.

MY KIDS WERE SMALL AND I

SHOULD

SPEND TIME WITH THEM BUT I KEPT

GOING

AND GOING.

HIS THRIVE TO MAKE MONEY

BECAME AN

OBSESSION.

IT'S LIKE A CYCLE. YOU NOT

ONLY GET

ADDICTED TO MAKING MONEY BUT

THE THINGS

THAT COME WITH IT AND THE DRIVE

TO MAKE

MORE. IT'S LIKE A COMPETITION.

LIKE

KEEPING YOU THE WITH THE

JONESES ON

STEROIDS.

THEN THE STOCK MARKET

CRASHED AND HE

LOST MILLIONS.

I WOULD SAY IT'S LIKE

GAMBLING

ADDICTION. WHEN GAMBLERS LOSE

THEY HAVE

THE INTENTION THAT BRIGHTER

DAYS ARE

COMING AND THEY START CHASING.

WHEN I

STARTED LOSING AND CONSTANTLY

LOOKING

FOR THIS REBOUNDS.

HE IMMEDIATELY TURNS HIS

ENERGIES TO

REBUILDING HIS EMPIRE AND HIS

WIFE

TIRED OF IT ALL AND THEY

DIVORCE.

HE STARTED OUT LEGITIMATELY

AND HE

WASN'T MAKING MONEY LIKE HE WAS

IN THE

90s.

THEN I STARTED TO BORROW

MONEY TO

REINVEST THAT MONEY. I'M GOING

TO

BORROW MONEY AND PAYBACK

INTEREST AND

MAKE IT BACK IN THE STOCK

MARKET AND

PAYOFF EVERYBODY AND UNTIL

THINGS

RETURN BACK TO NORMAL.

THEY DIDN'T. STILL WILLIAM

CONTINUED

TO INVEST FAMILIES MONEY UNTIL

THE

MARKET TURNED AROUND BUT

INSTEAD THERE

WILL BE NO PAYOFF.

INSTEAD OF MAKING MONEY, I

WAS

HURTING EVERYBODY ELSE AND GOT

TO THE

POINT OF NO RETURN.

WILLIAM LOST MILLIONS OF

INVESTMENT

DOLLARS.

WHEN YOU TAKE STUPIDITY,

PRIDE AND

EGO. I HURT A LOT OF PEOPLE

VERY CLOSE

TO ME.

HE KNEW IT WAS ONLY A MATTER

OF TIME

BEFORE AUTHORITIES WOULD CATCH

UP WITH

HIM.

IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE I

HAD

ENOUGH AND I COULDN'T DO IT

ANYMORE

REGARDLESS OF THE CONSEQUENCES.

I HAD

TO STOP THE TRAIN AND GET OFF

AND HEAR

THE MUSIC.

ON SEPTEMBER 20, 2006,

WILLIAM

TURNED HIMSELF IN. HE SERVED 52

MONTHS

FOR FRAUD AND MONEY LAUNDERING.

THE BOTTOM FOR ME WAS THAT

WILLIAMS

WORLD ISN'T THE CENTER OF

EVERYTHING.

HE HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST

AND HE LEARNED ABOUT FAITH.

I KEPT READING THE BIBLE AND

SPENDING MORE TIME WITH

CHRISTIANS AND

MY FAITH CONTINUED TO GROW. I

JUST, TO

ME, FAITH IS AN ABSOLUTE SENSE

OF

CERTAINTY THAT GOD IS WHO HE

IS, HE'S

GOING TO DO WHAT HE'S GOING TO

DO AND

HE DIED FOR ALL OF US.

EVENTUALLY WILLIAM GAVE HIS

LIFE TO

JESUS CHRIST. HE THEN STARTED

THE

JOURNEY WITH MAKING THINGS

RIGHT WITH

THOSE HE HURT AND ACCEPTING

GOD'S

FORGIVENESS.

ONCE YOU GET THAT

FORGIVENESS, IT'S

WHAT YOU WILL EVER NEED. THEN

ASKING

FOR FORGIVENESS FROM THOSE I

HURT. I

RECEIVED A LOT OF FORGIVENESS

BUT AT

THE SAME TIME I WANT TO WORK

HARD TO

MAKE EVERYTHING RIGHT.

AFTER SERVING 3 YEARS HE

MADE AMENDS

WITH HIS WIFE AND RECONCILED

WITH HIS

DAUGHTERS.

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY

DAUGHTER IS

BETTER THAN IT'S EVER BEEN. I

HAVE TOLD

THEM EVERYTHING AND IT WAS

PROBABLY THE

MOST SINGLE DIFFICULT

CONVERSATION I

HAVE HAD IN MY LIFE.

HE NOW TRIES TO PAY

EVERYTHING BACK

AND HE SAYS IT'S NOT PERFECT

BUT HE HAS

HIS FAITH IN GOD.

I'M STILL WORKING ON MY

PROBLEMS

AND I WORK ON THIS EVERYDAY OF

MY LIFE.

THE FIRST THING I DO IS READ MY

BIBLE.

JESUS IS WALKING BESIDES ME AND

WHEN I

GET INTO THESE SITUATIONS I

ALMOST STEP

BACK AND LET HIM STEP IN FRONT

OF ME

AND SAY WHAT WOULD YOU DO HERE.

DON'T

GET ME WRONG, SOMETIMES I STEP

OVER AND

MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES EVERY

TIME. BUT

HE'S BY MY SIDE.

HE'LL BE WITH YOU TOO. ALL

YOU HAVE

TO DO IS ASK HIM. HE SAYS IT'S

CLEARLY

THAT HE'S STAND ING AT THE DOOR

AND

KNOCKING. IF ANYONE HEAR MY

VOICE AND

OPEN THE DOOR, I WILL COME IN.

THAT'S

YOU. HE WANTS TO COME IN AND

HAVE

FELLOWSHIP WITH YOU. HE WANTS

TO BE

YOUR ALL IN ALL. THAT'S WHAT HE

MADE.

WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AT THE DREAM

THAT

GOD HAD FOR US. HE WOULD BE IN

A GARDEN

AND COME DOWN TO TALK TO US.

THAT'S HIS

DREAM. THE WONDERFUL NEWS IS

THAT HE

HASN'T GIVEN UP ON THAT DREAM

AND HE

HASN'T GIVEN UP ON YOU. MAYBE

YOU ARE

LIKE WILLIAM, MAYBE YOU HAVE

DONE SOME

THINGS THAT YOU ARE SHAMED OF.

YOU

DON'T WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO

KNOW. THE

GOOD NEWS IS THAT GOD CAN

FORGIVE YOU

OF ALL OF THAT. HE CAN SET YOU

FREE

FROM GUILT, SHAME,

CONDEMNATION. HE CAN

BUILD FOR YOU A PATH, IT CAN BE

DIFFICULT. RESTORATION, ALL OF

THOSE

THINGS HE WANTS US TO DO. BUT

IT ALL

STARTS WITH A VERY SIMPLE

PRAYER.

JESUS, IF YOU ARE THERE, IF

THIS IS

REAL, IF YOU REALLY CAN CHANGE

MY LIFE,

WOULD YOU SHOW ME? WOULD YOU

SHOW UP

FOR ME?

IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH ALL OF

YOUR

HEART, HE'LL ANSWER. HE'LL COME

IN.

HE'LL BE A SAVIOUR FOR YOU.

SO I WANT TO YOU TO DO THAT

RIGHT NOW.

DON'T CHANGE THE CHANNEL. IF

YOU NEED A

CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE. IF YOU

NEED TO

START OVER, JESUS WILL DO THAT

FOR YOU.

YOU LITERALLY CAN BE BORN

AGAIN,

REGENERATED FROM YOUR INNERMOST

BEING.

IF YOU WANT THIS, DON'T CHANGE

THE

CHANNEL. RIGHT NOW, JUST BOW

YOUR HEAD.

LET'S PRAY A VERY SIMPLE PRAYER

AND LET

JESUS DO ALL THE REST. PRAY

WITH ME.

JESUS, THAT'S RIGHT, SAY HIS

NAME OUT

LOUD.

JESUS, I HEAR THAT YOU WANT TO

HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP WITH ME. I HEAR

THAT YOU

CAME TO SAVE ME. TO PAY THE

PRICE FOR

ALL THE THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE

WRONG.

SO, JESUS, IF THAT'S REAL,

WOULD YOU DO

THAT FOR ME. WOULD YOU SAVE ME,

WOULD

YOU FORGIVE ME. AND JESUS, IF

YOU WILL

DO THIS, I WANT TO FOLLOW YOU,

I WANT

TO BE WITH YOU FOR ALL THE DAYS

OF MY

LIFE. HEAR MY PRAYER FOR I PRAY

IT IN

JESUS' NAME.

FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO JUST

PRAYED I ASK

FOR A BAPTISM IN YOUR LOVE. I

ASK THAT

RIGHT NOW THEY WOULD KNOW THAT

THEIR

PRAYER HAS BEEN HEARD AND HAS

BEEN

ANSWERED. FILL THEM NOW WITH

YOUR

FORGIVENESS AND WITH YOUR HOLY

SPIRIT.

FOR WE ASK IT ALL IN JESUS'

NAME, AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, THERE IS

ONE

MORE STEP I WANT YOU TO TAKE.

THE BIBLE

SAYS IF YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR

HEART AND

CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH, YOU

SHALL BE

SAVED. THAT'S WHAT I WANT YOU

TO DO.

SAY, I JUST PRAYED. I JUST

ASKED JESUS

TO COME INTO MY HEART. THERE

WILL BE

SOMEBODY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF

THAT

PHONE CALL. TOLL-FREE PHONE

NUMBER:

1-800-759-0700. HE'LL BE GLAD

TERRY?

Terry: STILL AHEAD, A FAMILY

TRIES TO

SEEK SHELTER FROM A TORNADO AND

RUNS

INTO IT'S PATH.

ALL THE LIGHTS WENT OUT AND

I

IMMEDIATELY WENT DOWN TO THE

FLOOR.

THIS WHOLE HOSPITAL WAS IN

SHREDS.

THEY SURVIVE A TORNADO.

THAT'S LATER

ON THE SHOW.

WELCOME BACK TO THE "700

CLUB". THE

TALK ON IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM

WAS

SUPPOSED TO WRAP UP BY TOMORROW

BUT

THERE IS STILL A FEW MORE DAYS.

THEY

ARE OPTIMISTIC BUT THERE HAS TO

BE A

TAKE IF THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE

AN

AGREEMENT WITH IRAN.

THE ALGERIA FEST IN MEXICO.

MORE

THAN 5,000 WERE IN ATTENDANCE.

THEY

WERE ABLE TO WATCH "SUPERBOOK"

ABOUT

DAVID AND GOLIATH. "SUPERBOOK"

IS ON 18

CHANNELS IN MEXICO WITH A

VIEWING

AUDIENCE OF MORE THAN 300-0000

PEOPLE.

YOU CAN WATCH MORE ON

CBN.COM/INTERNATIONAL.

Gordon: ANDY AND MARYANN

WEREN'T JUST

DOWN TO THEIR LAST BOTTOM

DOLLAR, BUT

THEY WERE DOWN TO THEIR LAST

ROLL OF

TOILET PAPER. THEY NEEDED A

FINANCIAL

MIRACLE AND THIS IS HOW THEY

GOT IT.

THEY WERE DOING QUITE WELL.

THEY

OWNED A PIZZA FRANCHISE AND

MARYANN WAS

SELLING BAGS ON THE SIDE AND

THEY HAD A

CHILD.

WE ALWAYS MADE SURE WE PAID

FOR

EVERYTHING AND WE HAD EXTRA FOR

THE

WEEKEND IF WE WANTED.

MARYANN BELIEVED THEY SHOULD

TITHE

AND ANDY BELIEVED THEY COULD DO

OTHER

THINGS.

WE COULD BUY GROCERIES.

THEN THE ECONOMY STARTED TO

SLOWDOWN

AND SEVERAL COMPETITORS SET UP

SHOT

NEARBY AND THEIR BUSINESS

PLUMMETED AND

THEN THEY HAD $40,000 IN

BUSINESS DEBT.

WE HAD TO FILE FOR

BANKRUPTCY.

THEY STILL WORKED TO DELIVER

PIZZA

AND BY THE TIME THEY HAD

ANOTHER CHILD.

I REMEMBER AT OUR WORST. IT

SEEMED

WE WOULD GET DOWN TO THE LAST

ROLL OF

TOILET PAPER. IT WAS

EXCRUCIATING TO ME

THAT I WOULD HAVE TO MAKE THE

CALL TO

ANDY ON HIS WAY HOME FROM WORK

BECAUSE

IT WAS HIS LAST DOLLAR ON HIS

WALLET.

THEY DECIDED TO GIVE GOD

CONTROL OF

THEIR FINANCES.

I WAS TRYING TO DO IT ON MY

OWN BUT

I SAID GOD, I CAN'T DO THIS ON

MY OWN.

LET YOU TRY IT.

SOON HE WAS ABLE TO DOUBLE

HIS

INCOME.

GOD WAS PROVIDING FOR ANDY

AND ABLE

TO HANDLE AND NOT ONLY TO BE

DEBT FREE

BUT TO ALSO SAVE.

MARYANN BECAME A CBN

PARTNER. WITHIN

WEEKS, AN ONLINE STORE BOUGHT

1200 BAGS

FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON. IT WAS

HER

BIGGEST ORDER YET AND IN 1 YEAR

THEY

WERE ABLE TO PAYOFF THEIR DEBT

AND WERE

ABLE TO GIVE TO CBN.

JUST LET GOD TO BE A PART OF

YOUR

LIFE.

MY FAMILY AND I ARE LIVING

PROOF

THAT WHEN YOU GIVE, YOU CAN'T

OUT GIVE

GOD BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS GOING

TO

PROVIDE ABOVE AND BEYOND FROM

WHAT YOU

HAVE EVER IMAGINED.

DO YOU WANT GOD TO BE WITH

YOU AND

WATCHING OVER YOUR FINANCES?

IF YOU DO

THAT, THEN YOU HAVE TO DO

THINGS HIS

WAY TO SAY OKAY, I'M GOING TO

GIVE, I'M

GOING TO TITHE REGULARLY AND

CONSISTENTLY. WHEN YOU DO IT

THAT WAY,

THAT'S WHEN THE BLESSINGS

HAPPEN.

THAT'S WHEN YOU HAVE THE FAVOR

OF GOD.

HE WILL POUR OUT A BLESSING YOU

CANNOT

CONTAIN. IF YOU WANT TO START A

Terry: THE SURVIVAL OF A

TORNADO AND

BEING CAUGHT IN THE STORM.

SEE THE MIRACLE OF WHAT

REUNITED

THIS FAMILY, NEXT.

Terry: 3 YEARS AGO DANIELLE

THOUGHT

HER LIFE WAS ABOUT TO END. SHE

WAS

LYING ON THE FLOOR WITH HER

BODY

PROTECTING HER BABY WHILE AN F

5

TORNADO CAME SLAMMING THROUGH

THE WALLS

AROUND HER AND SHE BECAME

SEPARATED

FROM HER HUSBAND AND

THREE-YEAR-OLD AND

THOUGHT SHE WOULD NEVER SEE

THEM AGAIN.

ON MAY 22, 2011. THEY WERE

DRIVING

TO THEIR FRIENDS HOME WITH

THEIR TWO

CHILDREN WHEN THEY HEARD

TORNADO

SIRENS.

WE HEARD A TORNADO

POSSIBILITY, A

WARNING COMING THROUGH.

IT WAS HEADED THROUGH THE

MIDDLE OF

JOPLIN. THEY DECIDED TO TAKE

SHELTER AT

THE HOSPITAL WHERE HER HUSBAND

WAS

EMPLOYED. THEY FIRST STOPPED BY

THEIR

HOME FOR BELONGINGS.

I WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY

HAD

IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE THEIR

PASSPORTS

AND BIRTH CERTIFICATES.

WE HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS

HAPPENING

WAS HAPPENING RIGHT THEN.

AS THEY ARRIVED AT THE

HOSPITAL,

THEY REALIZED HOW QUICKLY THE

STORM WAS

APPROACHING.

I DIDN'T SEE ANYBODY OUTSIDE

AND

THERE WAS A QUIET BUT THEN WE

CAN SEE

THE WALL OF BLACK IN FRONT OF

US.

THERE WAS NO WIND.

EVERYTHING WAS

STILL, EVERYTHING WAS QUIET,

BUT

EVERYTHING WAS CHARGED. THEN WE

SAW OUT

OF THE BLACK SKY A SHOOT OF

LIGHT GOING

STRAIGHT UP AND THEY CALL IT

POWER

SURGES AND THAT'S AN INDICATOR

THAT A

TORNADO IS ON THE GROUND. AND I

PRAYED

OUT LOUD, LORD, PLEASE PROTECT

OUR

FAMILY.

THE FAMILY MADE IT INTO THE

HOSPITAL

WITH MINUTES TO SPARE. THEY

GRABBED

ONE-YEAR-OLD ETHAN AND WENT

INSIDE.

I WALKED AROUND AND I SAW HE

WAS

HAVING A HARD TIME GETTING IN.

HE HAD

OUR THREE-YEAR-OLD AGAINST HIS

CHEST

BEARING DOWN TRYING TO GET TO

WHERE WE

WERE.

WHEN ANDREW MADE IT INSIDE

THEY

REALIZED THE HOSPITAL WAS ON

LOCK DOWN

AND UNABLE TO GET HIS FAMILY

SAFE.

I JUST STARTED SLAMMING

MYSELF

AGAINST IT AND AFTER ABOUT 6-7

TIMES

THE DOOR BROKE OFF THE BOTTOM

TRACK.

THE COUPLE SLIPPED

UNDERNEATH THE

CRACKED DOOR BEFORE THE F 5

TORNADO

SLAMMED DIRECTLY INTO THE

HOSPITAL.

AS SOON AS I SLIPPED UNDER

THAT

DOOR, NO SOONER HAD I GOTTEN

RIGHT PAST

IT, ALL LIGHTS WENT OUT AND I

WAS

IMMEDIATELY THROWN DOWN TO THE

FLOOR.

THE WHOLE HOSPITAL IS BEING

TORN TO

SHREDS AROUND ME.

THE FAMILY WAS SEPARATED IN

AN

INSTANT.

AS SOON AS THE LIGHTS WENT

OUT, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO

THEM.

I WAS PICKED UP ABOUT 15

FEET AND

GOT SLAMMED INTO THE DOOR WHILE

I WAS

HOLDING EMILY. THE NEXT THING I

KNEW I

WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE

STAIRCASE WITH

MY DAUGHTER WITH ME I WAS

HOLDING HER

NEXT TO THE RAILING.

WITH THE COUPLE HOLDING ON,

THEY

CRIED OUT TO GOD.

I WAS JUST CRYING OUT TO

GOD.

WITH MY BABY WITH ME, I WAS

SINGING

WORSHIP SONGS AND WHATEVER CAME

TO

MIND. I JUST FELT SO PEACEFUL.

I FELT

LIKE I COULD ALMOST TOUCH

PEACE. IF I

LIFT MY EYES I WOULD HAVE SEEN

GLORY. I

THOUGHT, OKAY, THIS IS HOW MY

STORY

ENDS. I NEVER KNEW WHAT IT WAS

GOING TO

BE. I THOUGHT, YOU KNOW WHAT, I

THINK

WE'LL FIND HIM AND HE'LL BE

OKAY.

ST. JOHN HOSPITAL WAS

SEVERELY

MANGLED BY THE STORM. UPPER

STORIES

COMPLETELY DESTROYED. CARS IN

THE

PARKING LOT WERE TOSSED AND

DISFIGURED

BEYOND RECOGNITION.

WHEN I COULD NOT FIND MY

WIFE AND

SON, I WAS VERY NERVOUS AND I

JUST

WANTED TO BE BACK WITH HER. I

JUST WENT

BACK INTO THE HOSPITAL AND THE

DOOR WAS

ALREADY OPEN AND I DON'T KNOW

IF I

CALLED OUT FOR HER OR SHE

CALLED OUT

FOR ME.

BUT ANDREW AND DANIELLE'S

PRAYERS

WERE ANSWERED AND THEY WALKED

AWAY WITH

MINOR CUTS AND BRUISES.

WE FINALLY GOT BACK TOGETHER

AND I

REMEMBER HUGGING HER. IT WAS

VERY SHORT

LIVED, OUR REUNION.

AFTER THE REUNION, THE

COUPLE HAD TO

FACE THE REALITY OF THE STORM

AND IT

WAS WIDESPREAD DESTRUCTION.

THERE ARE NO HOUSES. THERE

ARE TREES

THAT ARE NOT THERE ANYMORE AND

AS FAR

AS THE EYE CAN SEE.

THEY SAY THAT WHILE PRAYER

OFFERED

THEM SUPERNATURAL PROTECTION

DURING THE

STORM, IT ALSO BROUGHT THEM

COMFORT

DURING THE AFTERMATH.

IT WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE

BOTH OF

US HAD THE SAME REACTION ON

WHAT

HAPPENED AND WHAT COULD HAVE

HAPPENED

AND BOTH OF US FOUGHT AGAINST

IT AND

NEITHER OF US HAD NIGHTMARES

ABOUT THE

TORNADO.

THOUGH THE FAMILY LOST ALL

OF THEIR

BELONGINGS, THEY ARE STILL

THANKFUL FOR

THE HELP THEY HAD AND WHAT THEY

RECEIVED FROM OTHERS.

PEOPLE CAME TO OUR HOUSE TO

HELP US.

PEOPLE WE DIDN'T KNOW WERE

DOING OUR

LAUNDRY. PEOPLE EVERYWHERE WERE

LINEING

THE STREETS DOING WHATEVER THEY

CAN TO

HELP. I THOUGHT OKAY, I'M

TAKING NOTES

BECAUSE WHEN SOMEONE IS

SUFFERING, I

WANT TO DO THESE THINGS.

SHE WROTE THE BOOK "SINGING

OVER ME"

AND HOW IT BROUGHT THEM

PROTECTION IN

SPITE OF THE TORNADO.

IN THE MIDST OF HIM SAVING

US, HE

HAS GIVEN US THIS GIFT, THIS

STORY THAT

WE HAVE. THIS STORY OF TRIUMPH,

THERE

IS TRAGEDY AND SURVIVAL IN THE

MIDST OF

HORRENDOUS CIRCUMSTANCES. THE

HOPE THAT

I HAD FOR THE FUTURE, THE HOPE

THAT I

HAVE NOW IS SO MUCH GREATER.

I DEFINITELY SAW HE IS NEAR

ME

WHETHER I DIE OR WHETHER I

LIVE. I

BELIEVE THAT PRAYER CHANGES THE

WORLD.

Terry: TRIUMPH OVER TRAGEDY.

A

SURVIVAL OVER CIRCUMSTANCES

THAT SEEMED

UNBEARABLE. THAT'S OUR GOD.

HE'S WITH

US, HE'S FOR US AND HE'S ALL

AROUND AND

WE ARE NEVER WITHOUT HIS

PRESENCE AND

HIS POWER AND EVEN IN THE

STEEPEST

CIRCUMSTANCES. TODAY WE WANT TO

TAKE

SOME TIME TO PRAY FOR YOU IN

WHATEVER

SITUATION YOU FIND YOURSELF IN.

JUST AS

COURAGE FROM FAITH. THIS IS

ERNIE FROM

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA WITH KIDNEY

DISEASE

WHICH CAUSED A CONDITION IN HIS

LEG. HE

CHOSE TO PUT HIS NAME ON A

TRANSPLANT

LIST AND WAIT. NEARLY A YEAR

LATER

WHILE WATCHING THE "700 CLUB",

GORDON

SAID GOD IS ABLE TO HEAL. HE

SAID THAT

IS MINE. I'M ACCEPTING THAT IN

JESUS'

NAME AND HE NOTICED THIS

UNUSUAL TASTE

IN HIS MOUTH DISAPPEARED AND

HIS DOCTOR

SAID THIS CONDITION GOT BETTER

AND THEN

HE WAS GIVEN A FOLLOW UP

ULTRASOUND.

Gordon: HERE IS ANOTHER ONE.

JOANNE

SUFFERS FROM OSTEOPOROSIS IN

HIS

MID-20s. SHE CONTINUED TO WORK

ALTHOUGH

SHE HAD FREQUENT PROBLEMS WITH

PAIN IN

HER BACK. AS A NURSES AID SHE

WAS

HELPING LIFT A PATIENT WHEN SHE

FELT

SOMETHING SNAP IN HER BACK.

X-RAYS

SHOWED SHE HAD BROKEN THREE

DISK IN HER

SPINE. THE DOCTORS HAD LITTLE

HOPE FOR

PERMANENT PAIN. OSTEOPOROSIS

PAIN IS

GONE. RISE UP AND WALK

STRAIGHT.

IMMEDIATELY JOANNE JUMPED UP

FROM HER

SEAT SHOUTING I'M CLAIMING THIS

FOR

MYSELF. SHE FELT A WARMTH AND A

POP AND

THE PAIN WAS GONE. SHE THEN

BENT OVER

AND TOUCHED HER TOES AND

STARTED

JUMPING UP AND DOWN WITH JOY.

SUPPOSEDLY SHE'S GOT THREE DISK

BROKEN

BUT SHE'S JUMPING UP AND DOWN

WITH JOY.

AFTER A WEEK WITH NO PAIN, SHE

CALLED

CBN FOR GOD PRAISE FOR HER

HEALING.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS, GIVE HIM

PRAISE.

WHAT WAS DANIELLE DOING DURING

THE

STORM? SHE WAS PRAISING HIM.

SHE SAID

IF THIS IS THE LAST THING I'M

DOING, I

WANT MY BREATH PRAISING THE

LORD. WHEN

YOU DO THAT, YOU OPEN ONE OF

THE

GREATEST SECRETS OF THE

UNIVERSE. GOD

INHABITS THE PRAISES OF THE

PEOPLE AND

HE SINGS THE SONGS OF

DELIVERANCE OVER

YOU. SO OFTEN WHEN WE GET INTO

DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES WE WANT

TO

BLAME GOD. GOD, YOU ARE NOT

RUNNING THE

UNIVERSE RIGHT FOR ME TODAY

INSTEAD OF

PRAISING HIM FOR THE VERY

BREATH THAT

YOU HAVE, FOR THE LIFE THAT YOU

HAVE.

SO IF YOU HAVE A NEED, WE ARE

GOING TO

PRAY. IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR

NEEDS START

THINKING OF THE THINGS YOU CAN

PRAISE

HIM FOR. PRAISE HIM FOR YOUR

LIFE.

PRAISE HIM FOR YOUR FAMILY.

PRAISE HIM

FOR ALL THE GOOD THINGS HE'S

DON'T AND

A GOD THAT HAS SEEN YOU THIS

FAR ISN'T

GOING TO ABANDON YOU NOW. AND

THE MORE

YOU PRAISE HIM AND WHEN HE

FILLS YOUR

VERY BEING, HE WILL INHABIT

YOUR PRAISE

AND YOU CAN ASK WHATEVER YOU

WANT.

THESE ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS.

IF YOU

ASK ANYTHING IN MY NAME, I WILL

DO IT.

SO LET'S DO THAT. LET'S JUST

PRAISE HIM

AND IN THE PRAISE LET'S PRAY.

LET'S GO

BOLDLY TO THE THROWN OF GRACE

BECAUSE

IT IS GRACE THAT WE ARE LOOKING

FOR.

LET'S GO BOLDLY AND ASK HIM AND

SEE

WHAT HAPPENS. LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE COME TO YOU WITH

THANKSGIVING. LORD, WE PRAY

ESPECIALLY

FOR THOSE WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS

THAT

HAVE BEEN ENDURING PAIN FOR

YEARS, FOR

THE CHRONICALLY SICK, WE JUST

LIFT THEM

UP TO YOU. ASK THAT THE PEACE

IN ALL

UNDERSTANDING THAT JOY

UNSPEAKABLE

WOULD FILL THEM THAT THEY WILL

PRAISE

YOU WITH THEIR BREATH AND

UNDERSTAND

THAT YOU ARE GOOD AND WE WILL

JOIN IN

SONG AND DELIVERANCE OVER THEM

AND WE

SAY BE HEALED NOW IN JESUS

NAME, BE SET

FREE FROM THIS PAIN NOW. LET

THE PAIN

JUST DROP OFF YOU AND NO LONGER

AFFLICT

YOU. LET THERE BE CLEAR REPORTS

FROM

YOUR DOCTOR, GOOD REPORTS OF

WHAT GOD

HAS DONE FOR YOU.

THERE IS SOMEONE, YOU'VE GOT

CHRONIC

PAIN THROUGHOUT YOUR SPINE BUT

PARTICULARLY IN THE MIDDLE OF

YOUR

SPINE. IT'S LIKE SHACKLES. YOU

JUST

FEEL BOUND BY IT AND GOD IS

BREAKING

THAT OFF. IT'S LIKE HE'S

BREAKING OFF

EACH VERTEBRAE IS COMING UP

FREE AND

YOU ARE FEELING NEW MOVEMENT

AND YOU

ARE FEELING IT MOVE IN YOUR

BACK. GOD

IS HEALING YOU AND RESTORING

YOU. YOU

ARE GOING TO BE PAIN FREE FROM

THIS

MOMENT FORWARD. HE'S DONE A

GREAT

MIRACLE FOR YOU. JUST PRAISE

HIM FOR IT

AND RECEIVE IT NOW IN JESUS'

NAME.

Terry: THERE IS SOMEONE ELSE.

YOU

HAVE A LIGHTNING CONDITION AND

I DON'T

KNOW WHAT IT IS BUT YOU HAVE A

SHORT

CAPACITY OF BEING ABLE TO

BREATHE

CLEARLY. JUST TAKE A BREATH AND

YOUR

LUNGS ARE COMPLETELY OPEN.

Gordon: THERE IS SOMEONE WITH

A LUNG

CONDITION ON YOUR LOWER RIGHT

LOBE, GOD

IS HEALING THAT CANCER NOW.

JUST TAKE A

DEEP BREATH AND REALIZE THAT

PAIN IS

NOT THERE. YOU HAVE BEEN

BREATHING

SHALLOW IN ORDER TO AVOID THE

PAIN.

BREATHE IN DEEPLY AND REALIZE

YOU HAVE

BEEN WONDERFULLY HEALED.

SOMEONE ELSE WITH A PROBLEM

WITH

YOUR INTESTINES AND YOU HAVE

LIKE

CROHN'S DISEASE AND PAIN, GOD

IS

CREATING A MIRACLE. YOU ARE

BEING

COMPLETELY HEALED. IT'S AS IF

YOU

NEVER HAD IT.

SOMEONE WITH PAIN, GOD IS

RESTORING

YOU AND HEALING YOU SO YOU CAN

WALK

NORMALLY AGAIN.

SOMEONE ELSE, YOUR JAW IS

OUT OF

ALIGNMENT AND PAINFUL AND

CHEWING AND

SPEAKING AS WELL. GOD IS

HEALING THAT

FOR YOU. IT'S GOING TO REALIGN

ITSELF.

LORD, WE THANK YOU. YOU ARE

THE

HEALER AND SAVIOUR. WE THANK

YOU FOR

ALL YOU HAVE DONE. IN JESUS'

NAME WE

PRAY.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN HEALED BY GOD,

LET US

KNOW. WE ALWAYS LOVE TO TELL

PEOPLE

ABOUT THE WONDERFUL MIRACLES

THAT

HAPPEN TODAY AND YESTERDAY

BECAUSE

JESUS IS THE SAME TODAY AND

FOREVER.

STILL TO COME, WE'LL BE

ANSWERING YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS. DON'T GO AWAY.

Terry: LET'S TAKE A COUPLE

MINUTES TO

ADDRESS A FEW E-MAILS. THE

FIRST ONE IS

FROM NANCY, I KNOW AS

CHRISTIANS WE

SHOULD FAST BUT I HAVE NEVER

FASTED

BEFORE. WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO

GIVE UP?

IF YOU ARE BRAND NEW TO IT,

EASE

INTO IT. DON'T MAKE A VOW THAT

I'M

GOING SO MANY DAYS INTO A FAST

AND YOU

REALIZE YOU HAVE MADE A

MISTAKE. YOU

CAN FAST ALL KINDS OF THINGS.

MY MOTHER

IS BIG ON EVERY YEAR SHE WANTS

TO FAST

OFF SWEETS AND SHE DOES THAT

DURING THE

SEASON OF LENT. I HAVE SEEN ALL

KINDS

OF FAST BUT I HAVE ALSO SEEN

SOME

EXTREME ONES. WHEN YOU DO FAST,

MAKE

SURE YOU DRINK FLUIDS. NEVER GO

WITHOUT

WATER BECAUSE THAT CAN BE LIFE

THREATENING. DON'T FAST FOR

POWER. FAST

TO DENY YOUR FLESH.

Terry: MY FRIEND SAYS HER

HUSBAND HAS

LEFT HER FOR ANOTHER WOMAN. THE

ONLY

REASON SHE STAYS BECAUSE HE'S

PAYING

FOR THE COST OF DIVORCE. SHE

WANTS A

RELATIONSHIP WITH ME BUT SHE

WANTS TO

WAIT UNTIL SHE'S LEGALLY

DIVORCED.

CHRISTOPHER, THE FACT THAT

YOU ARE

ASKING ME THE QUESTION, YOU

ALREADY

KNOW THE ANSWER. IT'S NOT OKAY.

SHE'S

STILL MARRIED. I KNOW SOME

THINGS CREPT

INTO THE CHURCH WHERE WE WANT

TO BE FOR

GIVING AND EVERYTHING IS OKAY.

NO. YOU

WILL BE VIOLATING THE 7TH

COMMANDMENT.

DON'T DO THAT. IF YOU HAVE ANY

QUESTIONS, DO THE COMMANDMENTS

SURVIVE,

READ THAT. WHATEVER IS NOT OF

FAITH IS

SIN.

WE LEAVE YOU TODAY WITH THESE

WORDS

FROM PSALMS MAY HE GRANT YOU

ACCORDING

TO YOUR HEARTS DESIRE AND

FULFILL ALL

OF YOUR PURPOSE.
