Learn about the prayer that launched a movement one hundred believers strong. Plus, a football player embarks on an unlikely second career in the arts. Read Transcript


Gordon: THE PRAYER

THAT LAUNCHED A MOVEMENT.

I RO WROTE IN MY NOTEBOOK,

I WANT TO HEAR SOMEONE

SPEAK IN TONGUES.

Gordon: 100 MILLION

BELIEVERS STRONG.

PLUS...A FOOTBALL PLAYER

WHO EMBARKS ON A SECOND

CAREER.

THEY WERE LIKE, ARE YOU

SINGING OPERA?

I WAS, LIKE, NO.

Gordon: THEN, TWO

SNOSNOWBOARDERS CAUGHT IN AN

AVALANCHE.

ALL OF A SUDDEN

EVERYTHING STARTS TO LET

GO.

Gordon: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

WELL, WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB."

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MAKING

IT CLEAR, HE DOESN'T THINK

THE NEWS MEDIA IS BEING

FAIR TO HIS

ADMINISTRATION.

HE IS EVEN CALLING SOME OF

THEIR COVERAGE DISHONEST.

Wendy: WHILE THE

PRESIDENT WAS TAKING ON

THE MEDIA, THE SENATE HELD

HIS CONFIRMATION HEARING

ON HIS NOMINEE FOR

AMBASSF THE VOTE.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP DID NOT MINCE WORDS

AS HE MET THE MEDIA IN THE

WHITE HOUSE.

President Trump: I

TURN ON THE TV, OR I OPEN

THE NEWSPAPER, AND I SEE

STORIES OF CHAOS.

CHAOS.

AND YET IT IS THE EXACT

OPPOSITE.

THIS ADMINISTRATION IS

RUNNING LIKE A FINE-TUNED

MACHINE, DESPITE THE FACT

THAT I CAN'T GET MY

CABINET APPROVED.

AND THEY ARE OUTSTANDING

PEOPLE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT COVERED A WIDE

RANGE OF SUBJECTS,

INCLUDING MORE OPTIMISM

AMONG BUSINESSES SINCE HE

TOOK OFFICE, AND THE

SOARING STOCK MARKET, AND

HIS SUCCESSFUL ROLL-OUT TO

THE SUPREME COURT.

HE PUSHED BACK REPORTS

THAT HIS CAMPAIGN ADVISORS

MAS HAVE HAD INAPPROPRIATE

CONTACT WITH RUSSIAN

ADVISORS.

AND HE TALKED ABOUT THE

DISHONEST MEDIA.

President Trump: THE

PRESS, HONESTLY, IS OUT OF

CONTROL.

Reporter: IT APPEARS

MOST OF AMERICA SHARES

TRUMP'S LACK OF CONFIDENCE

IN THE MEDIA.

ONLY 32% OF AMERICANS SAY

THAT HAD A FAIR AMOUNT OF

TRUST IN THE MEDIA.

THAT'S THE LOWEST EVER

SINCE GALLOP STARTED

ASKING THE QUESTION IN

1972.

MEANWHILE, TRUMP'S PICK

FOR U.S. AMBASSADOR TO

ISRAEL HAD HIS

CONFIRMATION HEARING

BEFORE THE SENATE

CONFIRMATIONS COMMITTEE.

IT DID NOT TAKE LONG

BEFORE DAVID FRIEDMAN WAS

INTERRUPTED BY

DEMONSTRATORS.

INCLUDING THIS ONE.

MR. FRIEDMAN ALSO SAID

NOT A REFUGEE WILL HAVE A

CONNECTION TO THE LAND.

Reporter: WHEN HE

WASN'T INTERRUPTED, HE DID

ANSWER THE QUESTION ABOUT

SETTLEMENTS AND A

TWO-STATE SOLUTION, GIVING

THE PALESTINIANS THEIR OWN

NATION, SIDE BY SIDE WITH

ISRAEL.

YOU, OF COURSE, HAVE

BEEN INVOLVED IN

SUPPORTING SETTLEMENTS,

AND IN CONVERSATIONS THAT

SEEM TO IMPLY THAT THE

TWO-STATE SOLUTION IS NO

LONGER A VIABLE OPTION.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

SENATOR, IF THE

ISRAELIS AND THE

PALESTINIANS WERE ABLE,

THROUGH DIRECT

NEGOTIATIONS, TO ACHIEVE A

TWO-STATE SOLUTION, ALONG

THE PARAMETERS AGREEABLE

TO THEM AND THE PRIME

MINISTER OF ISRAEL

YESTERDAYOUT LINEYESTERDAY OUTLINED SOME O F

THEM, I WOULD BE

DELIGHTED.

Reporter: STILL, HE

ACKNOWLEDGED HIS DOUBTS.

I HAVE EXPRESSED MY

SKEPTICISM ABOUT THE

TWO-STATE SOLUTION SOLELY

ON THE BASIS OF WHAT I SEE

AS AN UNWILLINGNESS OF THE

PALESTINIANS TO DENOUNCE

TERROR AND TO ACKNOWLEDGE

ISRAEL AS A STATE.

Gordon: DAVID BRODY

IS WITH US.

IT WAS QUITE A SHOW

YESTERDAY.

WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON IT?

David: I'M

FRUSTRATED THAT I DIDN'T

BRING POPCORN.

BECAUSE THAT WAS POPCORN

MUNCHING, FOR SURE.

THE WAY THIS WENT DOWN AT

THE WHITE HOUSE WAS PRETTY

FASCINATING.

DONALD TRUMP WALKED IN IN

THE MORNING AND SAID,

LET'S DO A PRESS

CONFERENCE TODAY.

AND BOOM, EVERYBODY

STARTED RUNNING.

IT WAS THAT CHAOTIC, IF

YOU WILL, BECAUSE, LOOK,

ALL ALONG, DONALD TRUMP IS

HIS BEST PRESS SECRETARY.

IT IS HIMSELF.

IT HAS BEEN PRETTY

FASCINATING TO WATCH THE

MEDIA'S REACTION.

ALTHOUGH THEY ARE CLEARLY

THINKING IT IS A

COMBUSTIBLE SITUATION.

THEY FEEL HE WAS UNHINGED.

WE'VE HEARD THESE WORDS.

BUT, BOY, TO HIS BASE --

HE WAS CHANNELING HIS BASE

YESTERDAY, AND THERE WAS

NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.

IT WASN'T EVEN LIKE HE WAS

AT THE EAST ROOM OF THE

WHITE HOUSE.

IT WAS MORE THAT HE WAS

KIND OF HANGING OUT WITH

SOME RUST BELT FACTORY

WORKERS AFTER A WHISTLE

BLOWS AT 5:00.

IT WAS VERY GENUINE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS

INTERESTING -- HERE IS A

COMPARISON FOR YOU: RONALD

REAGAN WAS ABLE TO CUT

THROUGH THE MEDIA WITH,

LIKE, A BUTTER KNIFE, IF

YOU WILL.

DONALD TRUMP CUTS THROUGH

THE MEDIA MORE LIKE WITH A

CHAINSAW, BUT THE POINT IS

STILL THE SAME.

HE IS ABLE TO CUT THROUGH

THE MEDIA CLUTTER AND BE

VERY GENUINE.

LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM, HE

IS GENUINE, FOR SURE.

Gordon: HE IS

GENUINE.

LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM --

BUT IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS

DIVIDING, THOUGH.

HE SEEMED TO TAKE ON CNN,

AND YOU KIND OF WONDER,

ARE THEY JUST LAUGHING ALL

THE WAY TO THE BANK.

THE HEAD OF CNN WAS

PREDICTING THEY'RE GOING

TO HAVE A BILLION DOLLARS

IN PROFITS FOR THIS

CALENDAR YEAR, WHICH IS AN

ASTONISHING NUMBER.

AT THE SAME TIME, THE

POLLS ARE SHOWING THAT

NOBODY TRUSTS THE MEDIA

ANYMORE.

DOES IT SEEM TO MATTER?

David: WELL, I THINK

IT MATTERS TO DONALD

TRUMP, AND HERE IS WHY:

BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE CAN

GET AWAY WITH WHAT HE DID

YESTERDAY BECAUSE THE

PUBLIC, OVERALL, HAS HIS

BACK, EVEN THE ONES THAT

DON'T NECESSARILY SUPPORT

DONALD TRUMP, ACTUALLY

DON'T SUPPORT THE MEDIA.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF DONALD

TRUMP HAS A 50% APPROVAL

RATING, WELL, THE MEDIA,

AS YOU JUST POINTED OUT,

FAR LESS THAN THAT.

IF YOU RUN THE MATH,

DONALD TRUMP BELIEVES HE

HAS THE WIND AT HIS BACK,

SPECIFICALLY AS IT RELATES

TO HIS APPROVAL VERSUS THE

MEDIA'S APPROVAL.

Gordon: DO YOU THINK

THIS IS THE START OF THE

CAMPAIGN SEASON, IF YOU

WILL, FOR THE MID-TERM

ELECTIONS?

WAS THIS A CAMPAIGN EVENT?

David: YEAH, THAT'S

ACTUALLY A VERY ASTUTE

OBSERVATION.

I THINK IT WAS SOMETHING

OF A CAMPAIGN EVENT

BECAUSE IT WAS IN HIS

WHEEL HOUSE, AND THIS IS

WHERE HE LIKES TO OPERATE.

WE KNOW HE IS GOING TO

FLORIDA THIS WEEKEND,

WHERE HE'LL HAVE A BIG

CAMPAIGN RALLY.

HERE WE GO, ABOUT A MONTH

INTO HIS PRESIDENCY, AND

HE IS ALREADY HOLDING

CAMPAIGN RALLY EVENTS.

WHICH, BY THE WAY, I

THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING

AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE AT

THURSDAY, HE SAYS THE

CROWDS, HE UNDERSTANDS,

ARE ALREADY GOING TO BE

HUGE.

HE HAD TO TALK ABOUT THE

CROWD SIZE BEFORE THE

CROWD HAS EVEN GATHERS.

I THOUGHT THAT WAS

SOMEWHAT INTERESTING.

Gordon: LET'S TURN TO

THE POLICY.

IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS GOING

AHEAD WITH A NEW

IMMIGRATION ORDER.

DO YOU HAVE ANY INSIGHT ON

WHAT IS GOING TO BE IN THE

ORDER?

David: THE WHITE

HOUSE REALIZES THEY NEED

TO, IN ESSENCE, TAILER

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER

BECAUSE OF THAT NINTH

CIRCUIT DECISION.

ONCE AGAIN, NOT ALL "I"s

ARE DOTTED AND "T"s ARE

CROSSED, BUT INCLUDING

SOME NON-MUSLIM COUNTRIES

TO THE EXECUTIVE ORDER.

AND THAT'S WHY HE SAID IT

MIGHT BE EVEN BETTER THAN

THE ORIGINAL EXECUTIVE

ORDER BECAUSE THERE WILL

BE SOME ADDITIONAL

COUNTRIES ADDED.

AND LOOK FOR THE GREEN

CARDS, TO MAKE SURE THEY

WILL BE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL

AND NOT BE PART OF THAT

TRAVEL BAN.

Gordon: IT LOOKS LIKE

DAVID FRIEDMAN IS GOING TO

BE CONFIRMED AS

AMBASSADOR.

ANY INSIGHT ON WHAT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN AS A

RESULT OF THIS?

ARE WE GOING TO SEE ANY

KIND OF DEAL BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS?

ARE WE GOING TO SEE THE

EMBASSY MOVE TO TEL AVIV?

WHAT'S YOUR PREDICTION?

David: WELL, THIS IS

A -- HOW DO WE SAY THIS --

IT IS A BIG GREY AREA.

HERE IS WHY -- DONALD

TRUMP, HE IS THE ART OF

THE DEAL.

AND PART OF THE

DEAL-MAKING PROCESS HERE

IS NOT TO REVEAL YOUR

HAND.

SO WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS --

DO THE WHITE HOUSE, DEEP

DOWN, DONALD TRUMP AND

SOME OF HIS ADVISORS, LIKE

BANNON AND FRIEDMAN, DO

THEY WANT TO MOVE THE

EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM?

ABSOLUTELY THEY DO.

BUT CAN THEY REVEAL THAT

PUBLICLY RIGHT NOW?

NO.

IT IS PART OF THE ART OF

THE DEAL.

THAT'S WHY THE OTHER DAY,

DONALD TRUMP LOOKED THE AT

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IN

FRONT OF ALL OF THE WORLD

AND SAID, I'D LIKE YOU TO

HOLD OFF ON THE

SETTLEMENT.

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE

SWEET SPOT OF SOME SORT OF

DEAL.

SO THAT'S THE GREY AREA.

FRIEDMAN IS THE GUY WHO IS

NOT FOR A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION.

JARED KUSHNER, DONALD

TRUMP'S SON-IN-LAW,

JEWISH, IS A BIG

PRO-ISRAEL GUY BUT MIGHT

BE A LITTLE MORE INTO

NEGOTIATIONS WHEN IT COMES

TO A TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

SO THERE ARE A COUPLE OF

COMPETING INTERESTS THERE.

AND DONALD TRUMP, AS HE

SAID HIMSELF, WANTS THE

BEST DEAL POSSIBLE, BUT HE

HAS GOT NETANYAHU'S BACK,

AND THAT'S A GOOD THING

FROM ISRAEL'S STANDPOINT.

Gordon: DAVID, I'VE

GOT TO ASK THIS -- YOU'VE

BECOME A CELEBRITY AT

THESE PRESS CONFERENCES,.

David: GOSH, DON'T

TELL MY WIFE THAT.

Gordon: YOU WON'T GET

ANY RESPECT AT HOME.

David: NO.

Gordon: ARE YOU

GETTING ANY SLACK BEHIND

THE SCENES?

David: WHEN I ASKED

THAT FIRST QUESTION THE

OTHER DAY AT THE NETANYAHU

TRUMP PRESS CONFERENCE,

MANY OF THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA MEMBERS, WHO I KNOW,

JIM ACCOSTA, AND SOME OF

THE OTHER FOLKS FROM

NBC -- THERE WERE SOME

DEATH STARES AT ME.

THEY WERE NOT HAPPY.

THEY WERE NOT HAPPY THAT

CBN WAS ASKING NOT ONLY

THE FIRST QUESTION, BUT A

QUESTION, AND THEY DIDN'T

GET ONE DURING A VERY

IMPORTANT PRESS

CONFERENCE.

SO, YEAH, THERE HAS BEEN

SOME PUSHBACK, I THINK

MORE WITH -- IF YOU WANT

TO CALL IT THE SILENT

TREATMENT FROM FOLKS THAT

I'VE KNOWN.

IT HAS BEEN INTERESTING,

BUT THAT'S OKAY.

THAT'S OKAY.

Gordon: YOU'RE UP FOR

THE CHALLENGE.

IT SEEMS LIKE THE WHITE

HOUSE PRESS CORPS HAS

ALWAYS BEEN AN ALPHA MALE

ENVIRONMENT.

SO GET READY FOR MORE

DEATH STARES.

DAVID, THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US, AND STAY STRONG.

David: THANKS,

GORDON.

Gordon: INDONESIA'S

COMMITMENT TO DEMOCRACY

AND RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE

MAY BE AT STAKE AS VOTERS

IN JAKARTA CHOOSE THEIR

NEW GOVERNOR.

THE CURRENT GOVERNOR IS

STILL ON TRIAL FOR

ALLEGEDLY COMMITTING

BLASPHEMY AGAINST ISLAM.

LUCILLE TALUSAN BRINGS US

THAT STORY.

Reporter: JAKARTA'S

INCUMBENT GOVERNOR, BASUKI

TJAHAJA PURNAMA, KNOWN AS

AHOK, IS CURRENTLY ON

TRIAL FOR ALLEGEDLY

INSULTING ISLAM.

AND SOME INDONESIANS

BELIEVE IT MAY COST HIM TO

LOSE THIS ELECTION.

BUT HIS SUPPORTERS SAY HIS

RECORD OF GOOD GOVERNING

MAY LEAD TO VICTORY,

REGARDLESS OF THE CHARGES

AGAINST HIM.

> THIS POLITICAL

ANALYST...

A HOCK IS ONE O AHOK IS ONE OF THE BEST

GOVERNORS.

Reporter: CHRISTIANS

BELIEVE AHOK IS AN ANSWER

TO PRAYER IN THE WORLD'S

MOST POPULOUS MUSLIM

COUNTRY.

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON

NOW FOR ALMOST 30 YEARS,

THIS MOMENTUM OF PRAYER

FOR INDONESIA AND FOR ITS

GOVERNMENT.

I SEE THE RISE OF BASUKI

TJAHAJA PURNAMA, A GOD

ORDAINED LEADER BEING

RAISED UP, FEARLESS IN

INTEGRITY, FOCUSED ON

BEING A TRANSPARENT, GODLY

LEADER.

Reporter: McCLENDAN

SAYS IF AHOK BECOMES THE

FREELY ELECTED GOVERNOR OF

JAKARTA, THIS CAN OPEN THE

WAY FOR A DOUBLE MINORITY.

AHOK BEING CHRISTIAN AND

CHINESE, TO BE PRESIDENT

OF INDONESIA IN THE

FUTURE.

HE SAYS, WHY CAN'T I

BECOME PRESIDENT?

I'M INDONESIAN, JUST LIKE

EVERYBODY ELSE.

AND SO THAT PATH WOULD BE

OPEN TO HIM IF HE BECOMES

THE FREELY ELECTED

GOVERNOR OF JAKARTA.

ACTUALLY, WE ARE

EDUCATED BY OUR PARENTS,

WHO LOVE THIS NATION.

AND REALLY TO DO THE BEST

FOR THIS NATION.

SO LOVE THE MUSLIMS, AND

THE MUSLIMS LOVE US.

Reporter: THE WINNING

CANDIDATE MUST RECEIVE

MORE THAN 50% OF THE VOTE.

THE FINAL ELECTION RESULTS

ARE EXPECTED WITHIN THREE

WEEKS.

IF THE VOTES OF THE

WINNERS ARE LESS THAN 50%,

A SECOND ROUND BETWEEN THE

TOP TWO CANDIDATES WILL BE

HELD IN APRIL.

THE PEOPLE HERE AT THE

AHOK HEADQUARTERS ARE VERY

EXCITED BECAUSE THEIR

CANDIDATE IS LEADING.

IF AHOK WINS, THIS IS A

STRONG INDICATION THAT

INDONESIA IS RUN BY

DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES, AND

NOT BY RELIGION OR

ETHNICITY.

LUCILLE TALUSAN, CBN NEWS,

JAKARTA.

Gordon: WELL, THIS IS

AN INCREDIBLE STORY, AND

WE'VE BEEN COVERING IT

EVER SINCE HE WAS CHARGED

WITH BLASPHEMY.

IF HE IS ABLE TO WIN THIS

ELECTION, THAT WILL BE A

WATERSHED EVENT IN THE

LARGEST MUSLIM COUNTRY, BY

POPULATION, AND BY LAND

AREA, IN THE WORLD.

AND WHAT A GREAT THING

THAT WOULD BE, AND HOW IT

WOULD RING THE BELL FOR

DEMOCRACY BEING POSSIBLE

IN A MUSLIM MAJORITY

COUNTRY.

AT THE SAME TIME, HE IS

STILL FACING A BLASPHEMY

TRIAL, WHERE HE COULD

SPEND FIVE YEARS IN JAIL.

SO WE'RE GOING TO COVER

IT, AND WE'RE GOING TO

KEEP YOU INFORMED.

AND PLEASE BE PRAYING FOR

THE DEMOCRACY OF

INDONESIA.

WENDY?

Wendy: WELL, COMING

UP, THERE ARE OVER

100 MILLION CATHOLIC

CHARISMATICS IN THE WORLD,

AND THEY CAN ALL TRACE

THEIR ROOTS BACK TO A

PRAYER MEETING ON A

COLLEGE CAMPUS.

THE PRESENCE OF GOD WAS

SO THICK, SO POWERFUL, YOU

COULD CUT IT WITH A KNIFE.

COULD CUT IT WITH A KNIFE.

Gordon: 50 YEARS AGO,

CHARISMATIC CATHOLICS DID

NOT EXIST.

TODAY, THERE ARE ABOUT

120 MILLION OF THEM, AS

PAUL STRAND TELLS US, IT

ALL STARTED WITH JUST A

DOZEN COLLEGE-AGED

CATHOLICS IN PENNSYLVANIA.

Reporter: THIS WOODED

AREA NORTH OF PITTSBURGH,

SERVES AS THE BIRTHPLACE

OF THE CATHOLIC

CHARISMATIC MOVEMENT.

IT MARKS THE 50th

ANNIVERSARY OF THE

OUTBREAK.

THAT MONTH OF

FEBRUARY 1967, PATTY HAD

NO WAY OF KNOWING SHE

WOULD BECOME ONE OF THE

VERY FIRST CATHOLICS

BAPTIZED BY THE HOLY

SPIRIT AND CHANGED

FOREVER.

FEBRUARY 17, THROUGH

19th, 1967 WAS THE

ANNUAL RETREAT.

Reporter: LITTLE DID

THOSE PRESENT REALIZE WHAT

WAS HAPPENING THEM HERE

WAS JUST THE START OF THE

SOVEREIGN MOVE OF THE HOLY

SPIRIT THAT WOULD BLESS

HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF

CATHOLICS OVER THE NEXT

FIVE DECADES.

IT FIRST HIT DAVID MANGUM

THAT WEEKEND, WHEN THEY

WERE TEACHING THAT THE

HOLY SPIRIT WOULD BRING

TONGUES AND POWER-LIKE

DYNAMITE.

HE WANTED BOTH.

I WROTE IN MY NOTEBOOK,

I WANT TO HEAR SOMEONE

SPEAK IN TONGUES, ME.

Reporter: AND HE

RECEIVED A POWERFUL ANSWER

AS HE SOUGHT THE LORD

ALONE THAT WEEKEND IN THIS

UPPER ROOM CHAPEL THAT NOW

FILLS WITH DOZENS OF

WORSHIPPERS.

THE PRESENCE OFED GOD

WAOF GOD WASSO THICK, SO POWERFUL, YOU

COULD CUT IT WITH A KNIFE.

THERE WERE ALL OF THEE

EXPLOSIONS GOINTHESEEXPLOSIONS IN MY BODY, AND

I HAD FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT

THAT I HAD SAID I WANTED

DYNAMITE.

Reporter: AS HE BEGAN

TO SPEAK IN TONGUES IN

THIS CHAPEL OVER 50 YEARS

AGO, HE ASKED THE RETREAT

LEADERS IF IT WAS REALLY

POSSIBLE.

THEY SAID, IT IS A

VALID EXPERIENCE.

IT HAS HAPPENED THROUGH

HISTORY.

AND I THOUGHT, WELL, I'M

NOT A SAINT.

BUT, OF COURSE, IT'S FOR

ANYBODY.

Reporter: SHORTLY

THERE AFTER, THE HOLY

SPIRIT FILLED HIM WITH

SUCH HEAVENLY JOY AND

LOVE, ABOUT A DOZEN

STUDENTS EXPERIENCED IT.

AS WE WERE KNEELING,

SOME WERE WEEPING, AND

SOME WERE LAUGHING FOR

JOY.

OTHERS, LIKE MYSELF, FELT

LIKE OUR BODIES WERE ON

FIRE.

OTHERS, LIKE DAVID, KNEW

THEY WANTED TO PRAISE GOD,

BUT IT WASN'T GOING TO

COME OUT IN ENGLISH.

Reporter: AND

MANSFIELD ALSO STARTED TO

SPEAK IN TONGUES, BUT SHE,

TOO, DOUBTED IT WAS REAL.

BUT GOD USED MANGUM TO

CONVINCE HER.

DAVID STARTS PRAYING IN

PERFECT FRENCH.

I SAID TO HIM, AFTERWARDS,

DAVID, I DIDN'T KNOW YOU

SPEAK FRENCH.

AND HE SAID, I DON'T SPEAK

FRENCH.

I STUDIED LATIN AND

GERMAN.

Reporter: AND OTHERS

ASKED MAGNUM TO PRAY OVER

HIM.

HE SAID I WAS SPEAKING

AN ANCIENT FORM OF FRENCH

THAT WAS NO LONGER SPOKEN

ON EARTH.

AND HE SAID, NOW YOU'RE

PRAYING IN ARABIC.

I WAS ASTOUNDED.

I KNOW LESS ARABIC THAN I

WOULD KNOW FRENCH, AND

NONE OF ALL FOR BOTH,

ACTUALLY.

Reporter: THE

CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC

RENEWAL WENT WORLDWIDE,

EVEN JUMPING

DENOMINATIONAL LINES.

FROM THIS PLACE FLOWED A

HOLY SPIRIT ANOINTING THAT

SOON SPREAD TO MILLIONS

AND THEN TENS OF MILLIONS.

THE HOLY SPIRIT BAPTIZED

CATHOLICS AND

NON-CATHOLICS, WHERE THEIR

DIFFERENCES MELTED AWAY.

MARK AND DARYL ARE BOTH

CATHOLIC CHARISMATICS WHO

WORSHIP FREQUENTLY WITH

NON-CATHOLICS.

EVEN THOUGH WE WORSHIP

DIFFERENTLY ON SUNDAY, I

CAN RECOGNIZE THAT CHRIST

IS WORKING IN YOU THE SAME

AS CHRIST IS WORKING

WITHIN ME.

WE'LL LEAVE IT TO THE

THEOLOGIANS TO WORK OUT

ALL OF THE MESS.

NOW WE SHARE KIND OF

THIS NEW ALIVE FAITH IN

THIS SPIRIT, A PERSONAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST.

I'VE SEEN MANY WALLS COME

DOWN.

Reporter: WENTWORTH

POINTS OUT JESUS PREACHED

SUCH UNITY IS ESSENTIAL

FOR THE WORLD TO BELIEVE.

THE MORE DIVISIONS THAT

WE HAVE WITHIN

CHRISTIANITY, THE LESS THE

WORLD BELIEVES THAT JESUS

TRULY IS THE SON OF GOD.

Reporter: AND HE

BELIEVES THAT BAPTISM IN

THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN GIVE

ALL CHRISTIANS TO

EXPERIENCE NOT ONLY UNITY,

BUT THE ABILITY TO BE A

POWERFUL WITNESS FOR GOD.

DOING THE THINGS THAT

JESUS DID, SHARING THE

LOVE OF GOD THE FATHER

WITH EVERYONE IN THE WORLD

WHO NEEDS IT.

AND WHO NEEDS IT?

EVERYONE IN THE WORLD.

Reporter: THIS

CHARISMATIC RENEWAL IS NOT

A DISRESPECTED OFF-SHOOT

OF THE MAIN CHURCH.

POPE FRANCIS ENCOURAGES

IT.

MANSFIELD HAS TALKED TO

THE POPE ABOUT IT.

HE CALLS THE

CHARISMATIC RENEWAL,

QUOTE, "A CURRENT OF

GRACE."

Reporter: PAUL STRAND

REPORTING FROM THE ARK OF

THE DOVE, PENNSYLVANIA.

Gordon: HAPPY

ANNIVERSARY TO THOSE

WONDERFUL STUDENTS FROM

DUCANE, TO THE ARK OF THE

DOVE, WHERE IT ALL

HAPPENED.

AND IT WENT FROM ZERO TO

120 MILLION AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND THE BEST NEWS OF ALL,

IT IS BREAKING DOWN

DENOMINATIONAL BARRIERS,

THAT UNALIT UNITY THAT COMES IN

THE SPIRIT.

THE ANOINTING BREAKS THE

YOLK.

IF THAT STORY HAS CREATED

IN YOU A HUNGER FOR THAT

EXPERIENCE, I ENCOURAGE

YOU TO GET AHOLD OF HAROLD

BRADISON'S WONDERFUL

TEACHING.

HE IS A LUTHERAN MINISTER.

HE BROUGHT A LOT OF

LUTHERAN DOCTRINE, BUT AT

THE SAME TIME, HE BROUGHT

THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

HE IS CALLED

MR. CHARISMATIC.

AND HE HAS A TEACHING

CALLED, "HOW TO RECEIVE

THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT AND SHARE IT WITH

OTHERS."

IF YOU WANT MORE

INFORMATION, WE'RE GOING

TO HAVE SOMETHING ON

cbn.com FOR YOU.

AND WE'D BE DELIGHTED TO

PRAY FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU NEED PRAYER ON

THIS, YOU WANT TO RECEIVE

THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY

SPIRIT, GIVE US A CALL.

1-800-700-7000.

WENDY?

Wendy: I REMEMBER

HAROLD, HE WOULD BE

SPEAKING IN TONGUES JUST

WALKING DOWN THE HALLWAY.

FOR HIM IT WAS AS NATURAL

AS SPEAKING.

Gordon: HIS FAVORITE

WORD WAS HALLELUJAH, AND

IT WAS LIKE THE WALLS

WOULD SHAKE.

HE I WAS A WONDERFUL MAN.

I CALLED HIM UNCLE HAROLD.

Wendy: I LOVED HIM,

TOO.

> UP NEXT, THE FORMER

FOOTBALL STANDOUT WHO

TRADED HIS PLAY BOOKS FOR

HUCCINI?

ONE OF OPERA'S RISING

STARS LOOKSEXT.

Wendy: AT 6' 2,"

290 POUNDS, HE WAS A

LINEMAN IN COLLEGE.

BUT HE FOUND HIS TRUE

CALLING FAR AWAY FROM THE

GRID IRON AND INSIDE THE

OPERA HOUSE.

MO ISEN BRINGS US HIS

STORY.

*

THERE WERE SO MANY

THINGS THAT HAPPENED ALONG

THE WAY OF THIS JOURNEY

THAT MORRIS ROBINSON COULD

NOT HAVE MANUFACTURED.

*

Reporter: GOD HAS A

PLAN FOR ALL OF US, AND WE

DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS.

YOU HAVE TO BE PATIENT AND

WAIT ON HIM, AND HE WILL

GUIDE YOU.

*

Reporter: HOW WOULD

YOU FINISH THIS SENTENCE:

GOD MADE ME...

WHOLE.

Reporter: WHOLE?

WHY IS THAT?

I'VE BEEN ABLE TO

EXPERIENCE A LOT OF

DIFFERENT THINGS IN LIFE.

I WAS A FULL-TIME ATHLETE.

A LOT OF KIDS DREAM OF

THAT, BEING ABLE TO GO AND

PLAY DIVISION ONE COLLEGE

FOOTBALL AND BE ON THE

TEAM AND HANG OUT WITH THE

FELLAS.

I DID THAT.

GOD GAVE ME A FAMILY.

I'M A DAD.

I'VE GOT TO DO ALL OF

THESE THINGS, BUT THE ONE

THING HE REALLY BLESSED ME

WITH TO BRING IT ALL

TOGETHER IS THE ABILITY TO

EXPRESS MYSELF MUSICALLY.

I HAD NO IDEA, NO

ASPIRATIONS, NO HOPES AND

DREAMS AT ALL OF BEING A

PROFESSIONAL SINGER.

THAT NEVER CROSSED MY

MIND.

MY MOTHER WAS ALWAYS IN MY

EAR SAYING, YOU KNOW YOU

SHOULD BE SINGING.

YOU SHOULD NEVER WALK AWAY

FROM MUSIC.

SHE MADE ME JOIN THE

PASTOR'S CHOIR.

AND AT THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHURCH,

IT IS ALWAYS THE PASTOR'S

CHOIR.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE A

SINGER.

I WANTED TO BE A DRUMMER.

JAMES CLEVELAND HAD A

SONG, AND THEY WOULD PLAY

IT ON THE STEREO ALL THE

TIME.

* AIN'T NOBODY LIKE

JESUS *

AND IT WAS REALLY -- I

GOT BUSTED SINGING IT.

Reporter: YOU GOT

CAUGHT.

AND MY MOM WOULD SAY,

IS THAT YOU?

AND THE NEXT THING YOU

KNOW, I'M SINGING IN THE

CHOIR ON SUNDAY MORNING.

AND IT WAS, LIKE, ON WALK

RADIO, SO THERE IS

PROBABLY A RECORDING IT

SOMEWHERE.

Reporter: YOU MOVE

INTO SALES, AND YOU'RE IN

IT FOR ALMOST A DECADE.

MY SECOND YEAR, I WAS,

LIKE, REP OF A YEAR.

I SOLD A HALF MILLION

DISKETTES TO THE

INTERNATIONAL MONETARY

FUND IN D.C., OR SOMETHING

LIKE THAT.

I WAS NAILING IT.

BUT I WAS, LIKE, THIS

ISN'T REALLY WHAT I HAD IN

MY SPIRIT.

Reporter: WAS THERE A

CERTAIN POINT IN THAT

TENURE WINDOW WHERE THAT

BECAME A WAIT, OR WHERE

THAT REALLY BEGAN

STIRRING?

I JUST NI KNEW I NEEDED TO

BE DOING SOMETHING ELSE.

I JUST THOUGHT I NEED

OTHER JOB.

I THOUGHT, MAYBE IF I MADE

MORE MONEY AND HAD A

BIGGER OPPORTUNITY,

CONTROLLED A LARGER

TERRITORY, I WOULD DO

BETTER.

I TOOK A JOB WITH MONSANTO

IN NEW ENGLAND.

AND IT GOT WORSE.

I WAS MAKING ALMOST TWICE

AS MUCH MONEY AND I WAS

MISERABLE.

I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT

WHAT IT WAS I SHOULD BE

DOING.

IT WAS WHILE I WAS THERE,

I AUDITIONED FOR THE NEW

ENGLAND CONSERVATORY'S

MUSIC.

Reporter: WHAT

EXPELLECOMPELLED YOU TO TAKE THAT

AUDITION?

I WAS RIDING THROUGH

DOWNTOWN BOSTON.

AND I SAID, HEY, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT I'M DOING, BUT I

KIND OF SING A LITTLE BIT.

AND TWO WEEKS LATER, I'M

SINGING THE NATIONAL

ANTHEM FOR THEM, AND THEY

WERE LIKE, HAVE YOU EVER

THOUGHT ABOUT SINGING

OPERA?

AND I WAS, LIKE, NO.

AND THEY SAID, WITH A

VOICE LIKE YOURS, YOU

SHOULD.

THAT WAS THE BEGINNING OF

THIS JOURNEY.

*

SOME PEOPLE SAY, DOES

THIS GUY WORK HARD?

WHY IS IT HAPPENING FOR

HIM?

THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH

I RELY ON THE STRENGTH AND

THE GUIDANCE OF THE LORD.

Reporter: WHAT ADVICE

WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE

WHO MIGHT BE WATCHING, WHO

IS IN THE THICK OF WHAT

THEY BELIEVE TO BE THE

AMERICAN DREAM AND DOESN'T

HAVE PEACE?

I ALWAYS SAY THAT GOD

WILL REVEAL HIS PLAN FOR

YOU.

AND YOU JUST HAVE TO WAIT

IT OUT.

IT MAY SEEM INSURMOUNTABLE

AND UNBEARABLE, BUT YOU

STAY WITH WHY YOUR DOING,

AND THE LORD WILL PRESENT

AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU.

Wendy: A STORY.

WHAT A VOICE.

AND THAT IS A WONDERFUL

STORY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, MO.

> STILL AHEAD, AN

AVALANCHE BUYERS A

SNOWBOARDER UNDERNEATH THE

MOUNTAIN.

ALL I HEAR IS POP, POP,

POP, AND THE WHOLE THING

LET'S GO.

AND I COULDN'T SEE MY HAND

IN FRONT OF MY FACE.

Wendy: HEAR HOW HE

AND HIS BROTHER ESCAPED A

SNOWY GRAVE, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

A WASHINGTON STATE FLORIST

WHO WAS FINED FOR REFUSING

TO PROVIDE A FLORAL

ARRANGEMENT FOR A SAME-SEX

WEDDING IS TAKING HER CASE

TO THE U.S. SUPREME COURT.

SHE HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS

FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS AND

HAS PREVIOUSLY SOLD

FLOWERS TO THE GAY COUPLE.

SHE SAID SHE COULDN'T

PROVIDE FLOWERS AT THE

WEDDING BECAUSE OF HER

CHRISTIAN BELIEF THAT A

MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

SHE ARGUED SHE WAS

EXERCISING HER FIRST

AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

BUT THE STATE SUPREME

COURT COURT UPHELD LOWER

COURT RULINGS THAT HER

FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS ARE

NOT FREE SPEECH.

> IN NEPAL, MANY OF THE

CHILDREN SPEND HALF OF THE

YEAR WORKING WITH THEIR

FAMILIES IN FIELD AND IN

FACTORIES.

BECAUSE THEY ARE POOR,

THEY DON'T HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO

SCHOOL.

SO "OPERATION BLESSING"

PARTNERED WITH A TEAM OF

VOLUNTEERS TO BUILD A SAFE

HOUSE FOR THEM.

34 CHILDREN, FROM AGES 4

TO 14 NOW LIVE IN THE SAFE

BEDS WITH MATTRESSES, A

CLEAN BATHROOM, WARM

BLANKETS, AND FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES

THEY'RE ALSO GETTING GOOD

IT'S COMING UP RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Gordon: WELL, MATT

AND MICHAEL WALSH WERE

5,000 FEET HIGH ON A

MOUNTAIN WITH BLIZZARD

CONDITIONS WHIPPING ALL

AROUND THEM, AND FACING A

WINDCHILL OF NEGATIVE 30.

ALL IN ALL, PERFECT

SNOWBOARDING WEATHER.

THE TWO BROTHERS TREKKED

UP TO PULLCAT BENCH,

LOOKING FORWARD TO AN

AFTERNOON OF FUN.

SOON THEY WERE PRAYING

JUST TO MAKE IT DOWN

ALIVE.

ALL OF A SUDDEN

EVERYTHING STARTS TO LET

GO.

THE LEDGE AND EVERYTHING.

BY THIS TIME, I HAD LOST

MY SIGHT OF MATT.

AND THE CLOUD OF SNOW WAS

SO BIG, I COULDN'T SEE MY

HAND IN FRONT OF MY FACE.

THINKING HE IS DEAD.

Reporter: MICHAEL

WALSH AND HIS YOUNGER

BROTHER, MATT, THOUGHT

THEY HAD FOUND THE PERFECT

SPOT FOR BACK COUNTRY

SNOWBOARDING IN WYOMING.

THEY PARKED MICHAEL'S

TRUCK AND CLIMBED TO THE

STEEPEST POINT, NEVER

THINKING ABOUT AVALANCHE

DANGER.

IT IS KIND OF JUST A

SNOW CLIFF THAT BUILDS UP.

AND IT BLOWS AND CURLS AND

CURLS AND CURLS AND BUILDS

A BIG LEDGE.

THE ORIGINAL PLAN WAS WE

WERE BOTH GOING TO GO DOWN

AT THE SAME TIME.

I DON'T KNOW WHY I CHANGED

THE PLAN.

I LOOKED OVER AT HIM, AND

I WAS LIKE, HEY, MATT,

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR.

Reporter: HIS BROTHER

MATT JUMPED OFF THE LEDGE

AND HIT THE SLOPE BLOW,

TRIGGERING A MASSIVE

AVALANCHE.

ALL I HEAR IS POP, POP,

POP.

THE WHOLE BOWL LET'S GO.

IT SOUNDED LIKE A FREIGHT

TRAIN.

Reporter: MATT SLID

HUNDREDS OF FEET DOWN THE

MOUNTAIN, CAUGHT IN THE

AVALANCHE.

THE WALL OF SNOW BEHIND

HIM HIT HARD, BURYING HIM

UNDER THREE FEET OF

HEAVY-PACKED SNOW.

MICHAEL LOOKED ON

HELPLESSLY.

AS SOON AS THE SNOW

CLEARS, THERE WERE NO

SIGNS OF HIM, NOTHING.

THERE WAS JUST ROCKS AND

SAGE BRUSH AND DIRT RIPPED

OUT OF THE GOWNED.

TO SEE HIM DISAPPEAR LIKE

THAT, AND I COULDN'T STOP

IT, THAT WAS VERY HARD.

Reporter: MICHAEL HAD

A DECISION TO MAKE: RUN TO

HIS TRUCK TO CALL

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE, OR TRY

TO FIND HIS BROTHER ON HIS

OWN.

IF I WENT AND LOOKED

FIRST, THERE WAS NO WAY I

WAS GETTING BACK UP THAT

HILL BY MYSELF TO CALL FOR

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE AGAIN.

SO I JUST CRIED OUT TO

GOD.

I SAID, GOD, WHAT DO I DO.

I HEARD HIM JUST AS LOUD

AS YOU'RE TALKING TO ME,

GO FIND YOUR BROTHER.

I NEVER HEARD GOD SPEAK TO

ME LIKE THAT BEFORE, AND

IT ROCKED ME.

Reporter: HE RAN DOWN

THE HILL, FRANTICALLY

CALLING HIS BROTHER'S

NAME.

AS SOON AS I GET ON TO

THE AREA WHERE IT ALL

SETTLED, THERE WAS

DESTRUCTION AND NO SIGN.

I'M LOOKING FOR A HAT, A

TIP OF HIS BOARD, A HAND,

SOMETHING STICKING OUT OF

THE SNOW.

NOTHING.

AND THEN I STARTED TO

SECOND-GUESS MYSELF, WAS

THAT REALLY GOD TELLING ME

TO GO FIND MY BROTHER.

I DECIDED THERE IS NO WAY

I'M GOING TO FIND MY

BROTHER.

I FINALLY CAME TO A POINT

WHERE I JUST SORT OF GAVE

UP.

IT SOUNDS TERRIBLE TO GIVE

UP, BUT I COULDN'T SEE ANY

SIGN OF HIM.

Reporter: MATT LAID

BURIED DEEP IN THE HEAVY

SNOW, UNABLE TO MOVE,

RUNNING OUT OF AIR AND

HOPE.

RIGHT WHEN I REALIZED I

WAS BURIED AND THERE WAS

NO WAY I WAS MOVING MY

BODY, I WAS CERTAIN I WAS

GOING TO DIE.

AT THAT POINT I HAD GIVEN

UP ON TRYING TO GET OUT.

I KNEW I WAS GOING TO DIE.

Reporter: BUT AS HE

LAY THERE PRAYING, HE SAYS

HE FELT GOD'S PRESENCE

WITH HIM.

THE PEACE I FELT IN

THAT MOMENT WAS AMAZING.

IT WAS -- I WOULD SAY IT

WAS HIM WITH ME IN THE

MOMENT.

SO I WAS READY.

I KNEW WHERE I WAS GOING.

I WASN'T SCARED.

Reporter: HE HEARD

GOD SPEAK TO HIM AND

REMIND HIM OF A PROPHECY

GIVEN TO MATT'S MOTHER,

WHEN SHE NEARLY LOST HIM

AS A BABY.

THAT THE BABY WOULD LIVE

AND DO GREAT THINGS IN HIS

LIFE.

I THOUGHT, HE IS GOING

TO RESCUE ME.

IT IS NOT GOING TO STOP

HERE.

HE STILL HAS A PLAN FOR MY

LIFE AND A PURPOSE FOR MY

LIFE.

Reporter: MATT SAYS

HOPE PROPELLED HIM TO

ACTION.

HE HAD AN AIR POCKET NEAR

HIS FACE, AND HE WAS ABLE

TO DIG ONE ARM NEAR THE

SURFACE.

MEANWHILE, MICHAEL STOOD

DIRECTLY ABOVE HIM,

UNAWARE OF HIS LOCATION.

PRETTY MUCH I WAS ABOUT

TO FALL TO MY KNEES AND

LOSE ALL HOPE, I DECIDED

TO TRY ONE MORE TIME.

MATT.

IT'S LIKE THE WIND IS

BLOWING 60 MILES PER HOUR.

SO WHEN YOU'RE HEARING A

HOOD AND A HAT, YOU CAN'T

REALLY HEAR ANYTHING.

I HEAR, MIKE, I'M FINE.

THERE IS NO WAY I SHOULD

HAVE HEARD HIM, WITH HOW

HARD THE WIND WAS BLOWING.

I TURNED AND I TAKE A STEP

BACK, AND I LOOK UNDER MY

LEFT FOOT, AND I SEE A

HOLE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A

BASEBALL.

I DUG ABOUT TWO FEET, AND

I THOUGHT, I'M CRAZY.

THAT WASN'T REALLY HIM.

I KEPT DIGGING AND DIGGING

AND I DUG ANOTHER FOOT,

AND I COULD SEE THE OAK

LEAF SYMBOL ON THIS JACKET

THAT I JUST BOUGHT HIM

LIKE A WEEK BEFORE THAT.

I COULD SEE HIS FACE, AND

HE WAS STILL ALIVE AND

OKAY.

I STARTED CRYING LIKE A

BABY.

I WAS JUST SO HAPPY BUT SO

SCARED ALL AT THE SAME

TIME.

Reporter: HE SPENT

THE NEXT HALF HOUR DIGGING

MATT OUT OF WHAT COULD

HAVE BEEN A SNOWY GRAVE.

THEY SAY IT WAS ONLY BY

GOD'S GRACE THAT THEY MADE

IT OUT ALIVE.

HE LED ME RIGHT TO THE

SPOT WHERE MATT WAS.

I HAD NO IDEA WHICH

DIRECTION HE WENT.

WHICH WAY IT SWEPT HIM.

AND TO LEAD ME DEAD CENTER

ON TOP OF HIM, THAT'S NOT

COINCIDENCE.

EVERYTHING JUST FELL INTO

PLACE JUST PERFECT.

GOD MET ME THERE AND WAS

STANDING THERE AND HELD MY

HAND ALL THE WAY DOWN

THERE, AND KEPT ME SAFE

AND HIM SAFE.

I THINK I SURVIVED

BECAUSE GOD HAS A BIGGER

PLAN FOR MY LIFE.

HE HAS BIG THINGS IN STORE

FOR ME, AND I DON'T THINK

THAT HE WAS GOING TO LET

THAT BE FOILED BY AN

AVALANCHE.

I THINK IT WASN'T HIS

WILL.

I'M DEFINITELY VERY

THANKFUL THAT GOD WOULD

RESCUE ME, HE WOULD WORK

IT OUT IN A WAY THAT WE

BOTH CAME OUT OKAY.

DEFINITELY THE SCARIEST

THINGS I EVER HAD HAPPEN

IN MY LIFE.

THINKING MY BEST FRIEND IS

DEAD AND THERE IS NO WAY

I'M EVER GOING TO FIND

HIM.

AND HAVING THE LORD MEET

ME THERE ON THAT HILL AND

BE THERE WITH ME THE WHOLE

TIME -- HE WAS THERE.

AND HE HEARS YOUR PRAYERS

IN YOUR TIME OF NEED.

Gordon: HE IS OUR

VERY PRESENCE HELP -- VERY

PRESENT HELP IN TIME OF

NEED.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE

SAYS.

AND IT SAYS IN HIM WE LIVE

AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR

BEING.

HE IS ONLY A PRAYER AWAY.

HE IS RIGHT THERE.

ALL WE NEED TO DO IS OPEN

OUR EYES AND SEE HOW HE

WANTS TO WORK ON OUR

BEHALF.

SOMETIMES HE'LL SPEAK IN

AN AUDIBLE VOICE.

SOMETIMES HE'LL SHOW YOU A

VISION.

SOMETIMES HE'LL HAVE

PROPHECIES OVER YOU, JUST

AS HE DID FOR MATT.

BUT JUST REALIZE THAT HE

HAS PLANS FOR YOU.

AND AS THOSE PLANS GET

FULFILLED IN YOUR LIFE, IT

WILL BE WONDERFUL.

BUT THERE IS A WONDERFUL

VERSE FROM PSALM 18, AND

YOU HEARD IT IN THE

PROPHECY OVER MATT: "I

WILL NOT DIE BUT LIVE AND

DECLARE THE GLORY OF THE

LORD."

NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING

ON, DON'T BLAME GOD FOR

IT.

DON'T BLAME GOD FOR THE

AVALANCHES IN YOUR LIFE,

BUT PRAISE HIM FOR THE

DELIVERANCE THAT HE SO

URGENTLY WANTS TO BRING TO

YOU.

BEGIN TO PRAISE HIM, NOT

FOR WHAT IS GOING ON, BUT

FOR THE DELIVERANCE THAT

IS GETTING READY TO COME.

NOW, WENDY AND I ARE GOING

TO PRAY FOR YOU.

BEFORE WE PRAY, WE WANT TO

ENCOURAGE YOU.

SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD

MIRACLES, AND HERE IS

BEVERLY OF SHANNON,

ALABAMA.

SHE CALLED THE "700 CLUB"

PRAYER LINE.

HER HUSBAND HAD AN X-RAY

AND TESTS REVEALED A SPOT

ON HIS LUNG, SO BEVERLY

CALLED TO PRAY.

A FEW WEEKS LATER, HER

HUSBAND RETURNED TO THE

DOCTOR FOR FOLLOWUP TESTS.

THE DOCTOR COULD NOT

BELIEVE EVERYTHING CAME

BACK CLEAN.

THE SPOT HAD DISAPPEARED,

AND THEY ARE PRAISING GOD.

AND THAT'S WONDERFUL.

Wendy: I'VE GOT ONE

HERE, TOO, GORDON.

WINIFRED INJURED HIS

SHOULDER WHILE MOVING

MULCH.

HE COULD HARDLY MOVE IT.

ONE DAY HE WAS WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB," AND HE

HEARD GORDON SAY, "YOU

HAVE DEEP PAIN IN YOUR

SHOULDER SOCKET WITH THE

INABILITY TO MOVE YOUR

ARM."

WINIFRED CLAIMED THE WORD

AND WAS COMPLETELY HEALED

AND HOW HE IS EVEN LIFTING

WAYS.

Gordon: WAY TO GO,

WINIFRED.

LET'S PRAY AND JUST

BELIEVE THE LORD.

IT IS NOT O O HOW YOU PRAY OR

HOW GOOD YOU ARE OR ANY OF

THOSE THINGS.

JUST HAVE FAITH IN GOD

THAT HE WILL DO WHAT HE

SAID HE WILL DO.

HAVE THAT FAITH AND

REALIZE GOD ALWAYS

RESPONDS TO FAITH.

HERE IS MICHAEL, AND THERE

HAS BEEN AN AVALANCHE, AND

HE JUST CRIES OUT A VERY

SIMPLE PRAYER, GOD, WHAT

DO I DO?

AND LET'S JUST BE VERY

SIMPLE, JUST LIKE LITTLE

CHILDREN, BE VERY SIMPLE

AND TRUST THAT YOUR

HEAVENLY FATHER, YOUR

DADDY, YOUR ABBA FATHER,

WILL ANSWER YOUR NEED.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, WE JUST COME

TOGETHER.

WE BRING THE NEEDS TO YOU.

AND WE JUST SAY, GIVE US

YOUR WORD.

TELL US WHAT YOU WANT US

TO DO.

Wendy: YES, LORD.

Gordon: AND WE JUST

PRAISE YOU FOR THE

DELIVERANCE, FOR THE

HEALING, FOR THE SALVATION

YOU WANT TO BRING.

AND WE RECEIVE IT NOW.

WE HAVE FAITH IN YOU, YOUR

UNFAILING LOVE, THE

COVENANT MADE BY YOUR

BLOOD, WE HAVE FAITH IN

THAT.

AND WE LOOK TO YOU, THE

AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER OF

OUR FAITH.

SO NOW IN AN ACT OF FAITH,

IF THERE ARE AREAS OF THE

BODY THAT NEED HEALING,

JUST LAY YOUR HAND ON THEM

RIGHT NOW.

AND WE'RE GOING TO AGREE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN

TWO OR MORE AGREE,

TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT

SHALL BE DONE.

SO WE REACH OUT AND TOUCH

THAT ANYTHING.

AND WE SAY TO IT, BE

HEALED NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

THERE IS SOMEONE LAYING

HANDS ON YOUR RIGHT EL ELBOW,

AND YOU'VE GOT A STRAIN IN

THE TENDONS AND STRAIN IN

THE JOINT, AND LOSE BITS

OF BONE AS WELL, AND GOD

IS JUST DOING A MIGHTY

MIRACLE FOR YOU.

YOU JUST FELT IT GO INTO

THAT WHOLE JOINT.

ALL OF THOSE LIGAMENTS,

EVERYTHING IS BEING MADE

NORMAL.

NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

WHAT YOU COULDN'T DO

BEFORE, BEGIN MOVING THAT

RIGHT ELBOW AND RECEIVING

HEALING IT IN JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: GOD IS HEALING

LUNGS, PEOPLE WITH ASTHMA,

C.O.P.D., AND YOU'VE BEEN

TOLD IT IS CHRONIC.

REMEMBER THERE IS NOTHING

CHRONIC WITH GOD.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE IF

YOU BELIEVE.

RECEIVE YOUR HEALING IN

JESUS' NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH RECURRING

BOUTS OF FLU-LIKE

SYMPTOMS, AND RIGHT NOW

YOU'RE HAVING A MASSIVE

HEADACHE AND WEAKNESS AND

FATIGUE, AND GOD IS COMING

TO YOU AND VISITING YOU

RIGHT NOW WITH ENERGY AND

WITH LIFE AND STRENGTH.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

JUST RAISE YOUR HANDS TO

HIM AND RECEIVE THE NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH AN INFECTION

IN YOUR LEFT EAR.

IT HAS BEEN THERE FOR A

WHILE.

IT GOES AWAY AND IT COMES

BACK.

AND GOD IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW.

JUST RECEIVE IT IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE HAD A

DIAGNOSIS FOR YOUR RIGHT

KIDNEY, YOU'VE BEEN HAVING

PROBLEMS AND PAIN IN IT.

AND YOU'VE GOTTEN THE

DIAGNOSIS YOU HAVE TWO

DIFFERENT GROWTHS ON

DIFFERENT SIDES OF THE

KIDNEY.

YOU'RE DEEPLY CONCERNED

ABOUT IT.

GOD HAS HEARD YOUR CRY,

AND HE IS HEALING YOU

RIGHT NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

JUST RECEIVE IT NOW.

LORD, WE THANK YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

SACRIFICE.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

COVENANT.

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR

LOVE.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW IN

JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

AND AMEN.

Wendy: AMEN.

Gordon: IF YOU NEED

PRAYER, WE'RE HERE FOR

YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US: 1-800-700-7000.

AND IF YOU HAVE HAD A

MIRACLE, LET US KNOW.

CALL AND GIVE GOD THE

GLORY FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE

FOR YOU.

1-800-700-7000.

WENDY?

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

STILL AHEAD, THEY WERE

BROTHERS WHO ONCE WONDERED

WHERE THEIR NEXT MEAL WAS

GOING TO COME FROM, BUT

NOT ANYMORE.

YOU'LL SEE WHY, NEXT.

YOU'LL SEE WHY, NEXT.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

CBN PARTNERS ARE HELPING

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD,

LIKE THESE TWO BROTHERS IN

CHINA WHO HAD NO PARENTS

AND BARELY ENOUGH FOOD TO

STAY ALIVE.

Terry: UCHAN DIDN'T

MIND HIS FATHER'S COAT WAS

TOO BIG FOR HIM, HE WORE

IT ANYWAY BECAUSE IT WAS

ALL HE HAD LEFT TO

REMEMBER HIM BY.

MR. SUNG DIED IN A CAR

ACCIDENT.

I MISS MY DAD SO MUCH.

Terry: UCHAN AND HIS

BROTHER, UHEY, WERE EVEN

MORE DEVASTATED WHEN THEIR

MOTHER ABANDONED THEM.

GRANDMA SUN TOOK OVER, BUT

SHE ONLY EARNED $2 A DAY,

MAKING IT HARD TO BY BASIC

NECESSITIES, LIKE SHOES.

THE OLD SHOES THEY GAVE

ME WERE TOO BIG.

Terry: AND THERE WAS

NEVER ENOUGH TO EAT.

WE HAD NO MEAT.

SOMETIMES ALL WE HAD WERE

PICKLES AND RICE.

MY TUMMY WAS ALWAYS

EMPTY AND FLAT.

I WAS SO HUNGRY THAT I

GOT DIZZY AND I COULDN'T

WALK.

I WAS WORRIED THAT THE

BOYS WOULD NOT DEVELOP THE

RIGHT WAY.

I KNEW IF THEIR DAD WAS

STILL ALIVE WE WOULD BE

OKAY.

BUT I COULDN'T MANAGE THE

FARMLAND BY MYSELF.

Terry: SO UCHAN AND

UHEY TRIED TO HELP.

EVERY TIME I THOUGHT

ABOUT HOW I COULDN'T

PROVIDE WHAT THE BOYS

NEEDED, MY HEART ACHED.

Terry: IT SEEMED LIKE

THE FAMILY WOULD NEVER GET

OUT OF POVERTY, UNTIL CBN

CAME TO THE BROTHERS'

SCHOOL.

WE GAVE EVERYONE WARM

WINTER COATS.

THEN WE GAVE UCHAN AND

UHEY SOME SOLDER THINGS

THEOTHER THINGSTHEY NEEDED, LIKE NEW

SHOES, NEW CLOTHES, AND A

PANTRY FULL OF FOOD.

NOW WE WON'T EVER BE

HUNGRY.

YOU TREATED US REALLY

NICE.

Terry: WE WANTED TO

HELP GRANDMA SUN TAKE

BETTER CARE OF HER

GRANDSONS, SO WE HELPED

HER START A LIVESTOCK

BUSINESS, WHICH WILL

TRIPLE HER INCOME WITH A

LOT LESS WORK.

THE DAY CBN BROUGHT

COWS TO ME WAS THE

HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE.

NOW I WILL HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY TO MEET ALL OF MY

GRANDSONS' NEEDS.

I AM SO GRATEFUL.

OF COURSE, I WILL

ALWAYS MISS MY DADDY, BUT

NOW CBN IS KIND OF LIKE A

FATHER TO ME, LIKE FAMILY.

THANK YOU, CBN, YOU ARE

THE BEST PEOPLE IN THE

WORLD.

Wendy: I LOVE SEEING

THEIR SMILES.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A

PART OF HELPING PEOPLE ALL

OVER THE WORLD, IT IS SO

EASY TO DO THAT.

JUST GO TO YOUR PHONES

RIGHT NOW, THE NUMBER IS

ON YOUR SCREEN, OR YOU CAN

LOG ON TO cbn.com AND

SAY, YES, I WOULD LIKE TO

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS ONLY 65 CENTS A DAY,

$20 A MONTH, IS ALL IT

TAKES TO BLESS OM.

WHEN WE JOIN TOGETHER, WE

CAN BLESS THAT MANY MORE.

WE HAVE A GIFT FOR YOU

WHEN YOU JOIN "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS PAT AND GORDON'S NEW

D.V.D. CALLED "THE SECRET

KINGDOM," AND GORDON'S

AMAZING TEACHING ON "THE

LAW OF EXPECTATION."

THIS IS A DYNAMIC DUO OF

TEACHING.

AND YOU WANT TO GET THIS.

IT IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN

YOU GIVE US A CALL RIGHT

NOW.

> IT IS TIME TO "BRING

IT ON."

Gordon: ARE YOU

READY?

Wendy: I'M READY

BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE TO

ANSWER THEM.

Gordon: YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO ANSWER?

IF I THROW IT BACK TO YOU?

Wendy: THAT WOULD BE

INTERESTING.

> THIS VIEWER SAYS, "I

WATCH YOUR PROGRAM EVERY

DAY AND IT IS A BLESSING

TO MY FAMILY.

I HAVE A QUESTION, THOUGH:

I HAVE HAD DREAMS ALMOST

EVERY OTHER DAY FOR MANY

YEARS NOW.

SOME DREAMS COME TO PASS

AND SOME DO NOT.

ANY SUGGESTIONS WHY I HAVE

TOO MANY DREAMS?"

Gordon: YOU'RE NOT

GIVING ME THE SPECIFICS ON

THE DREAMS, BUT THE

REALITY IS ALL PEOPLE

DREAM.

AND IF YOU'RE HEALTHY,

YOU'RE LITERALLY DREAMING

EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.

THE DOCTORS CALL IT THE

REM STAGE OF SLEEP.

AND THEN YOU GO INTO

DEEPER STAGES.

IF YOU'RE NOT DREAMING, IT

IS ACTUALLY A SIGN YOU MAY

HAVE SOME HEALTH PROBLEMS,

AND YOU NEED TO GET THAT

CHECKED.

MOST OF US FORGET WHAT THE

DREAMS ARE.

AND WHEN WE WAKE UP IN THE

MORNING, WE'RE NOT

REMEMBERING THEM.

EVEN IF YOU WAKE UP AND

YOU HAVE SOME MEMORY OF

IT, WAIT ABOUT AN HOUR,

AND YOU'VE FORGOTTEN WHAT

YOUR DREAM WAS.

IF YOU'RE REMEMBERING THE

DREAM -- I LIKE TO SAY

THAT DREAMS THAT COME FROM

GOD ARE DREAMS THAT HAVE

YOU AS OPPOSED TO YOU HAVE

THEM.

WHEN A DREAM COMES FROM

GOD, IT IS A MESSAGE THAT

WILL GRIP YOU, JUST LIKE

NEBUCHADNEZZAR WAS GRIPPED

BY HIS DREAM.

AND HE WANTED HIS

MAGICIANS TO TELL HIM WHAT

THE DREAM WAS, AS WELL AS

THE INTERPRETATION, SO HE

COULD BELIEVE IT.

AND ONLY DANIEL WAS ABLE

TO DO THAT.

SO IF DREAMS YOU'RE HAVING

ARE COMING TO PASS, I

WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO

START A DREAM JOURNAL.

AND YOU WILL START SEEING

SYMBOLS THAT REPEAT IN

YOUR DREAMS.

AND THEN TAKE A LOOK AT

THEM AND GO TO YOUR PASTOR

AND START ASKING HIM WHAT

DO THE SYMBOLS MEAN, AND

WHERE IS THIS GOING?

GOD GIVES SPECIFIC GIFTS,

AND ONE OF THE GIFTS HE

GIVES IS PROPHECY, AND

SOMETIMES PROPHETS RECEIVE

DREAMS FROM THE LORD.

SO EXAMINE IT, TEST IT,

PROVE IT BY SCRIPTURE, AND

SEE WHERE IT GOES.

Wendy: AMEN.

THIS VIEWER SAYS, "IN A

FAMILY SITUATION WHERE

THERE IS A LOT OF LYING

AND INTIMIDATION,

MANIPULATION, BETRAYAL OF

TRUST AND VERBAL ABUSE, IS

IT RIGHT TO CONTINUE TO

EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THAT

BEHAVIOR?

I'VE BEEN ADVISED TO

FORGIVE, SHOW LOVE, AND BE

NICE.

BUT WHAT ABOUT GUARDING

YOUR OWN HEARTS.

WOULD I BE WRONG TO CUT

TIES WITH CERTAIN FAMILY

MEMBERS?"

Gordon: YOU HAVE TO

TELL ME WHO THE FAMILY

MEMBER IS.

IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A

SPOUSE, THAT'S ONE THING.

IF IT'S A CHILD, THAT'S

ANOTHER THING.

IF YOU'RE A GROWN ADULT

AND YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A

PARENT OR A COUSIN OR AN

UNCLE OR A BROTHER AND

SISTER -- EACH ONE OF

THOSE RELATIONSHIPS HAVE

DIFFERENT RULES AND

DIFFERENT RESPONSIBILITIES

AND DIFFERENT OBLIGATIONS.

SO TO SAY A BLANKET RULE

FOR ALL RELATIVES, I CAN'T

GIVE YOU THAT.

IS IT OKAY TO GUARD YOUR

HEART?

ABSOLUTELY.

AND I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE, IF

YOU'RE IN THAT KIND OF AN

ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP, YOU

NEED TO START HAVING

BOUNDARIES.

AND YOU NEED TO EXPRESS

THOSE BOUNDARIES TO THE

PERSON WHO IS OFFENDING

YOU.

THE BIBLE SAYS IF YOUR

BROTHER OFFENDS YOU,

REBUKE HIM.

DON'T JUST SIT ON YOUR

ANGER, BOTTLE IT UP,

REBUKE HIM.

GET IT OUT.

ESTABLISH YOUR BOUNDARIES.

SAY THIS BEHAVIOR IS

UNACCEPTABLE.

> WE LEAVE YOU WITH

THESE WORDS FROM PSALMS:

"TASTE AND SEE THAT THE

LORD IS GOOD.

BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO

TAKES REFUGE IN HIM."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
