AND YOU KNOW I GOT A BAD GRADE IN PUBLIC SPEAKING AND THEY TOLD ME I NEED A LOT OF WORK. AND YOU KNOW, I GRADUATED THANK THE LORD, AND WE THANK GOD FOR GRACE AND NOT GRADES,AND THE MOST IMPORTANT TITLE WOULD BE THE CHILD OF GOD, AND THE HUSBAND AND FATHER AND THIS IS MY HONOR TO BE WITH YOU AND I LOVE YOU.>>AND ONE OF THE GREATEST STORIES YOU HAVE TOLD, HOW YOUR SON, AND HE HAD A CLASSMATE, HE BROUGHT THEM TO THE LORD?>>MY SON ANDREW, AND HE WAS BORN ON THE INAUGURATION DAY. AND HE CAME OVER AND HE’S GOING TO GOING TO THE FIFTH GRADE I SPOKE WITH HIM, AND HE SAID DAD, I’VE GOT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING I AM THINKING MAYBE HE SPILLED OIL ALL OVER THE CAR, HE WAS SERIOUS HE SAID I MUST TELL YOU SOMETHING, HE SAID I JUST BROUGHT MY BEST FRIEND IT TO JESUS AND HE WAS ON THE MONKEY BARS,AND HE BROUGHT HIS FRIEND TO CHRIST AND HE WOULD KNOW FOR SURE HE WOULD COME TO CHRIST, SOMETIMES IN THE MINISTRY WE CAN BE SO BUSY WE CAN TRY TO TOUCH THE WORLD BUT LEAVE AND MOVE AWAY FROM OUR OWN HOME I’M SO GLAD HE HAS CAUGHT THIS. AND HE IS ON FIRE, AND HE WORKS WITH RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE AND THE YOUTH CAMP, I WANTED HIM TO BE HERE FOR THE YOUTH CAMP AND WE CAME IN FROM DC AND THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH PASTOR RODNEY AND FOR SO MANY. AND YOU KNOW, IF I WOULD COME INTO SOME MONEY YOU KNOW, I WOULD PUT YOU INTO MY WILL. AND GOD CAN USE PEOPLE THERE BROKE BUT I WOULD BE ONE OF THEM BUT I’M SO GLAD TO BE HERE AND WHAT WOULD BE SO INTERESTING I CAN REMEMBER MANY YEARS AGO, WE HAVE MANY SIMILARITIES. AND THE NUMBER FORTY, IT WOULD BE SO RELEVANT. AND WHAT DOES FORTY MEAN TO YOU AND YOUR WIFE?>>BOB: AND WE CAME ON THE AIR, IT WAS FORTY YEARS AGO. THIS YEAR. AND THAT WAS OCTOBER IN 1979.>>GUEST: AND IN 1979, FORTY YEARS AGO LAST WEEK JULY 1979 I WAS AT A COUNTRY CHURCH I WAS SAVED AND THEN FROM THERE, AS I WAS COMING OVER, I GRABBED A NEWSPAPER AT THE CHURCH. AND THE PASTOR IS CELEBRATING ALSO FORTY YEARS. AND WE HAVE GOT 160 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE SERVING THE LORD TOGETHER. AND YOU KNOW, AND IT CAN BE THE TERMINOLOGY FOR TESTING AND IF YOU ARE TESTED WE KNOW GOD CAN BE TRUSTED.>>BOB: AND THIS WOULD BE ALL IN HIS WORD. AND THE FORTY YEARS. AND THEY DID NOT TRUST GOD FOR FORTY YEARS.>>GUEST: THAT WOULD BE TRUE. AND YOU KNOW, I DO NOT WANT TO WANDER IN THE WILDERNESS FOR FORTY YEARS. AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT YOU AND GOD IS USING YOU TO REACH OUT TO THE WORLD AND I THANK YOU FOR THE PRIVILEGE TO BE HERE, BUT WE HAVE SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE SAVED. AND SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE LOST THE PASSION FOR SOULS BUT I CRIED, JESUS, AND THE BIBLE SAYS HE TELLS US IF WE WIN SOULS WE ARE WISE. AND WE WANT TO GET SOME MORE BEFORE IT WOULD BE TOO LATE.>>JANE: AND YOU KNOW WE HAVE THE BEAUTIFUL FEET AND WE ARE ON THE MOUNTAIN AND WE BRING THE GOOD NEWS. WELL, LET ME TALK ABOUT YOU BEING A CHAPLAIN IN THE OLYMPICS AND THAT BEGAN IN 2012 AND TALK ABOUT THAT.>>GUEST: AND THIS IS SO HUMBLING AT WE MIGHT HAVE SOME PICTURES AND THE CRAZY THING,>>BOB: AND DID YOU GET A GOLD MEDAL?>>GUEST: AND UNITE AM SOUL SLOW IT TAKES ME TWO HOURS TO WATCH SIXTY MINUTES, I HAVE GOT A FRIEND THAT IS A GOLD MEDALIST, AND YOU KNOW, I SAID I COULD BEAT YOU TO THE BY FAITH AT THE GOLDEN CORRAL. AND THE LORD OPENED UP THE DOOR THAT I COULD BE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE 2012 EVANGELISM TEAMS AT THE OLYMPICS. AND THIS WOULD BE SOMEONE FROM RUSSIA AND WE WERE NOT JUST ABLE TO TALK TO TEAM USA, BUT WE COULD WORK WITH TWENTY COUNTRIES AND THAT WAS SO AMAZING. AND THERE WAS A MAN FROM ZIMBABWE, I HAVE BEEN PREACHING AT CATHEDRAL AND HE WANTED PRAYER. AND HE SAID HE WOULD BE FIGHTING AUSTRALIAN THE MORNING. AND MANY PEOPLE WANT THAT EDGE, AND JUST THE EXTRA BUT I SAID, THE STRENGTH IS NOT IN YOUR STEROIDS BUT JESUS. AND WITH CHRIST, YOU HAVE NO GUILT AND WE WOULD HAVE ATHLETES WHO WOULD WIN AND MAY BE THEY WOULD BE JUICING, AND WE KNOW WE CAN DO EVERYTHING THROUGH CHRIST WHO BRINGS ME STRENGTH. AND THEY LOSE THEIR METALS. AND MAYBE IF SOMEBODY WOULD BE HOMELESS OR HOLLYWOOD, THE GOLD IS TEMPORARY AND GOD IS ETERNAL THAT WE HAVE SEEN SOME ATHLETES AND IF YOU SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH THEM, AND MAY BE THEY THINK THE GOLD MEDAL… YOU KNOW, IT IS EVERYTHING TO THEM AND THEY HAVE DONE EVERYTHING FOR THAT ONE MOMENT AND SOME OF YOU WILL THINK ABOUT SUICIDE IF YOU DON’T WIN THE BATTLE. AND YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN GET THE GOLD MEDAL OR THE SILVER BUT WITH JESUS YOU ARE A WINNER. AND YOU AND THE BIBLE SAYS AND WHAT WOULD IT COST IF YOU GOT THE WORLD BUT YOU LOST YOUR SOUL? AND WE WENT INTO BRAZIL, RIO DE JANEIRO, AND THERE WAS CHRIST THE REDEEMER STATUE. AND THAT IS ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC PICTURES IN THE WORLD, THAT STATUE. AND THEY WILL PAY THIRTY-FIVE DOLLARS TO GO TO THE TOP TO SEE THE VIEW OVERLOOKING OVER BRAZIL AND THEY WILL PAY THAT MONEY BUT THEY WON’T GIVE YOU WHAT TIME TO HEAR THE GOSPEL BUT WE BOUGHT A FAMILY TO CHRIST AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL AND THEY WERE GOING UP AND WE RAN INTO THE FAMILY AGAIN AFTER WE BROUGHT THEM TO CHRIST AND THEY HAD THEIR PICTURE YOU KNOW, THEY HAD THEIR PICTURE TAKEN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STATUTE. AND WE SAW ABOUT 1500 PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST DURING THE OLYMPICS,AND IT DOES NOT MATTER IF THEY ARE JUST FANS, OR OLYMPIANS, AND WE WORK WITH THEM AND WE DO STREET EVANGELISM AND WE GIVE THE GOSPEL TO ANYONE. AND WE HAVE PICTURES OF LEBRON JAMES, AND COACH… AND THE COACH USA TEAM, AND WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE GOSPEL, IT IS GLOBAL. AND YOU KNOW GOD’S NAME IT IS GO, AND THE GOSPEL SAYS GO AND THE GOOD NEWS IS GO, AND WE HAVE THE GREEN LIGHT TO GO. AND MOST PEOPLE, WOULD BE SATISFIED JUST SITTING ON THE SIDELINES. AND THIS IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT AND WE HAVE GOT TO GO FOR GOD AND IF YOU WIN SOULS YOU ARE WISE. AND IN THE OLYMPICS IF THE LORD DOES NOT COME BACK AND HE COULD COME TONIGHT. AND THE OLYMPICS WILL BE GOING INTO TOKYO, SO WE WILL LET IT GO IN TOKYO. AND PASTOR RODNEY, AND SOME OF HIS TEAM WOULD BE BRINGING OVER A DELEGATION. AND I HAVE GOT A VERY GOOD FRIEND, THAT IS A CHRISTIAN AND HE WAS A WRESTLER. AND WE BRING CHEERLEADERS, AND WE BRING GOLD MEDALIST, AND THEY COME FOR THE LORD TO HELP US TO REACH THE WORLD FOR THE LORD AND WERE JUST HAVING A GOOD TIME.>>BOB: THAT IS SO GREAT AT WHAT WHAT KIND OF A TEAM WOULD YOU PUT TOGETHER?>>GUEST: WE WANT PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE ON FIRE FOR JESUS>>JANE: AND DO YOU MAKE YOUR LIST?>>GUEST: AND LIKE SANTA WE HAVE TO CHECK IT TWICE AND WE INVITE YOU ONLY. AND YOU KNOW, EGOISM EDGING GOD OUT AND AT THAT LEVEL THAT WOULD BE A NEW DEVIL, AND YOU KNOW, IF YOU ALWAYS DO THE SAME THING YOU’LL JUST GET WHAT YOU’VE ALWAYS HAD. AND THERE IS NO ROOM FOR EGO. RONALD REAGAN SAID, HE SAID IT IS AMAZING WHAT YOU CAN DO, WHEN YOU DON’T CARE WHO WOULD GET THE CREDIT. WE BRING PEOPLE THAT WOULD BE ON FIRE TO THE LORD JESUS AND THEY ARE NOT LOYAL TO A DENOMINATION AND THEY JUST WANT TO SEE PEOPLE SAVED. AND LIKE THE MARINES, YOU DON’T NEED A LOT TO GET THE JOB DONE AND WE GO IN, AND WE DIE TO OUR FLESH AND WE GO BY FAITH. AND YOU WILL SEE BY THE END OF THE PROGRAM, I HAVE LEARNED THE PEOPLE THAT LOOK LIKE JESUS THE LEAST, AND THEY MIGHT BE OPEN TO THE MOST. AND MY FRIEND SHARED THE GOSPEL WITH ONE OF THE ROCK BANDS, KISS. THEY WERE IN BLACK. AND YOU KNOW AND WE SHARED WITH THEM ONE-ON-ONE AND THEY HEARD THE WHOLE, YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE FAMILY HERDED AND HE LOOKED AT MY FRIEND AND HE WAS CRYING HE SAID THANK YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT THE GOSPEL. AND HE SAID, NO ONE HAS CARED FOR MY SOUL BUT FOR YOU TODAY. AND THAT WAS THE GUITARIST FOR KISS. AND YOU THINK FOLKS WOULD BE UNTOUCHABLE BUT WHY WOULD THEY WANT THE LORD? BUT MAYBE YOU HAVE IT ALL, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE THE LORD, YOU MIGHT HAVE NOTHING AT ALL. AND I BELIEVE EVERYONE, AND WE ARE PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT.>>JANE: I AGREE. AND YOU WERE WITH BILLY GRAHAM FOR FIVE YEARS AT WHAT WAS THAT LIKE?>>GUEST: WELL, A LONG STORY SHORT, I WAS THE COORDINATOR FOR EVERYTHING THAT BILLY GRAHAM ASSOCIATION WOULD DO IN MY AREA.>>JANE: THIS IS THE PICTURE.>>GUEST: I DID MANY CRUSADES. AND THERE IS MY MOTHER ON THE LEFT. AND THEN YOU SEE MY WIFE RUTH. AND THEN YOU SEE MY FAMILY. AND THAT WOULD BE FORREST GUMP IN THERE, I AM IN THE PICTURE. AND WE MOBILIZE THE CHURCHES, AND YOU KNOW AND WE ENCOURAGE THE CHRISTIANS AND MOST CHRISTIANS NEVER BRING ANYBODY TO JESUS AND WE WERE ABLE TO TEACH A WHOLE CHURCH, AND WE TEACH HOW TO SHARE YOUR FAITH. AND WE LEARN TO PRAY, AND WE PROMOTE EVENTS. AND WE SEE FRANKLIN PREACH AND RECEIVE THOUSANDS COME TO CHRIST AND I WOULD DO THIS COAST TO COAST. AND I WAS WORKING AT THE ROSE BOWL. HE CAME. AND YOU KNOW AND WE WERE IN THE PARKING LOT AND WE SAW THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE SHOW UP AND IT WAS A HIGHLIGHT IN MY LIFE AND BILLY GRAHAM AND YOU KNOW HE WAS JUST IN INTEGRITY. HE WAS HUMBLE. AND HE PREACHED ABOUT ETERNITY AND HE WAS SAY TODAY’S THE DAY OF SALVATION. I MET GARTH BROOKS, AND HE SAID HE WANTED TO BE LIKE GEORGE STRAIT AND YOU KNOW, AND I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU AND BILLY GRAHAM. AND YOU KNOW, AND WE JUST WANT TO EMULATE JESUS AND AT THE END OF THE DAY THEY DO NOT NEED ME. A MAN GAVE ME A CARD, AND HE SAID IF YOU MEET ME AND FORGIVE ME THAT’S NOTHING, BUT IF YOU FORGET JESUS YOU LOSE EVERYTHING. AND WE MAKE SO MUCH OF JESUS BECAUSE HE MAKES SO MUCH OF US.>>BOB: AND WE SHALL TAKE A BREAK, AND WE HAVE GOT SOME MORE MUSIC COMING UP AND WE SHALL BE RIGHT BACK AND WE HAVE MORE OF THE GLOBETROTTING FRANK SHELTON. MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORK AND CHRISTIAN RADIO NETWORK IS TRYING SOMETHING GREAT AND BEAUTIFUL. WE ARE WORKING TOGETHER AND THIS IS THE WAY THAT WE SHOULD DO IT AND TONIGHT LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME WERE BROADCASTING A VERY SPECIAL PROGRAM, YOU AND ME, AND THE THEME OF THE PROGRAM AND WHAT WE WILL BE SHARING OF WORSHIPING AND SPENDING TIME WITH THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD. I DON’T THINK THAT I COULD DO WITH THE WORD OF GOD ANY INJUSTICE AT ALL BUT THE BIBLE SAYS IF WE WOULD AGREE AND LET’S SIMPLY MAKE THIS AND IF YOU HAD ME, AND IF WE COULD AGREE AND TOUCHING ANYTHING, IT SHALL BE DONE. MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. MUSIC MUSIC HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD. HE IS GREAT, AND HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD. MUSIC INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC. OUR SAVIOR GOD TO THEE MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC APPLAUSE>>JANE: THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.>>BOB: THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT. BEAUTIFUL MUSIC. AND WE ARE SPEAKING WITH FRANK SHELTON, AND HE HAS GONE ALL AROUND THE WORLD. AND HE WANTS TO REACH SOULS AND HE DOES NOT DO THIS, BUT BECAUSE IT IS JUST THE THING TO DO BUT GOD GIVES HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO ALL OVER THE WORLD. AND WE APPRECIATE HIM SO MUCH.>>JANE: AND NOW WE WANT TO SEE SOME PICTURES. AND THEY WOULD BE SHOWING PICTURES OF THE FIRST CHURCH WHERE YOU WERE SAVED. AND THAT IS WHERE YOU ARE SAVED? OKAY. AND YOU KNOW, YOU USED TO TEACH LITTLE CHILDREN AND YOU KNOW, AND THE BOYS RAISED THEIR HANDS, ABOUT LIVING IN EXCITING LIFE.>>GUEST: AND WHAT WOULD BE SO GREAT, THAT LITTLE COUNTRY CHURCH, IT IS JUST 10 MILES FROM WASHINGTON DCAND YOU KNOW, IT IS 4 MILES FROM ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE WHERE THE PRESIDENTS PLANE ARRIVES. AND YOU KNOW, AND FOR THE PERSON LISTENING TODAY, THERE IS NOTHING SMALL WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR ALL TO GOD. AND I WENT TO THAT LITTLE COUNTRY CHURCH AND WE WOULD HAVE ABOUT THIRTY-THREE PEOPLE AND YOU KNOW, AND FOURTEEN OF THE PEOPLE WERE BASICALLY MY FAMILY AND ANOTHER FAMILY. AND YOU DON’T NEED TO GOD WHAT BIGGER CHURCH TO MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE. AND THEY WERE SMALL BUT THEY PREACHED ABOUT A BIG GOD. HE WAS LOVING AND FORGIVING OF THE GOD OF MIRACLES. AT THAT COUNTRY CHURCH,I GOT SAVED IN 1979 AND THEN IN 1982, JULY, AND THEY WOULD GIVE YOU A PRIZE IF YOU BROUGHT SHORTER INTO THE VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL. AND YOU KNOW THEY WOULD MAKE FUN OF YOU AND THE ENEMY SAID IF I SERVE THE LORD I WOULD HAVE NO FRIENDS I HAD A VISION IF I WOULD GO OUT ON A LIMB FOR THE LORD I HAD MY FRIENDS,AND I WOULD BE AT AN EMPTY TABLE AND NOBODY WOULD BE WITH ME. AND YOU KNOW THE ENEMY TOLD ME THAT I WOULD NOT EVEN EXIST. AND YOU KNOW, HE WAS THREATENING ME ABOUT BEING IDENTIFY WITH JESUS. AND JESUS SAYS IF YOU WILL LOSE YOUR LIFE OF THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL YOU WILL FIND IT I HAD TO MAKE THE POINT NO MATTER WHAT I WOULD GO DOWN LIFTING HIM JESUS. IF GOD IS FOR YOU WHO COULD BE AGAINST YOU? IN JULY 1982 AND IF YOU WOULD BRING IN MANY KIDS, I COULD NOT SLEEP. I WAS JUST TEN YEARS OLD. AND MAYBE YOU DON’T KNOW THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS, YOU CAN MAKE GOD LOOK BAD AND I’M FORTY-SEVEN NOW AND I STILL DON’T KNOW ALL THE ANSWERS BUT I KNOW THAT JESUS IS THE ANSWER, JESUS DIED FOR ME, SO I WILL LIVE FOR HIM. AND WHEN I WAS TEN YEARS OLD, I CALLED MY FRIENDS, AND YOU WOULD USE A ROTARY DIAL, FEW SAID NO BUT I GOT SOME VISITORS, AND THEN I HAD FIVE, AND THEN I HAD ELEVEN, AND THEN EIGHTEEN, ON THURSDAY AND ON FRIDAY I BROUGHT IN TWENTY-TWO KIDS AND I GOT A PRIZE, AMEN? AND THE GREATEST HIGH WAS PROMOTING THE MOST HIGH AND THIS IS NOT ABOUT CRACK BUT IT IS ABOUT JESUS. IF YOU ARE USED BY THE LORD, YOU KNOW, GOD CAN MAKE YOU TREASURE AND NOT TRASH BUT THE ENEMY MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE TRASH. AND BY THE WAY, AND THE PASTOR IS NOW EIGHTY-SEVEN HE STILL PREACHES EVERY SUNDAY AT A NURSING HOME HE IS HAVING A GREAT TIME. I WENT TO GO SEE RAMBO II AND THERE WAS A MAN THAT GAVE ME A PAPER TO ENTER INTO A CONTEST, TO MEET STALLONE. AND YOU KNOW, YOU COULD BE WITH SYLVESTER STALLONE. AND YOU KNOW, THEY SAID I HAD NO CHANCE TO WIN BUT IT WAS A CONTEST TO MEET HIM AND BE ENTERED IN. AND YOU KNOW, I TOLD MY FRIEND JUDY I TAKE HER. AND THEN WE GOT A CALL AND I SAID WE WOULD GO TO HOLLYWOOD AND SHE GOT THE CONTEST AND WE WENT TO LOS ANGELES I WAS THIRTEEN IN 1985. AND WE GOT TO MEET SYLVESTER STALLONE AND WE GAVE HIM A LARGE BLACK BIBLE, AND WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO HAS EVERYTHING? GIVE THEM THE GOSPEL AND THAT IS WHAT HE NEEDED, HE DID NOT NEED A FERRARI, BUT HE NEEDED FORGIVENESS. THIS IS 1985, I WAS WITH ROCKY SYLVESTER STALLONE AT MGM. AND YOU KNOW, I DID NOT BEGIN WITH FAMOUS BUT I HAD MY FRIENDS AND I DID NOT BUT AGAIN IN HOLLYWOOD BUT BY MY HOME. AND WHEN YOU SHARE JESUS WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING AND YOU WILL NEVER CHICKEN OUT WHEN EVERYBODY IS WATCHING. I NEVER FELT SMART, BUT WE KNOW THAT JESUS IS LORD>>JANE: FOR THE SAKE OF TIME LET ME GO THROUGH THE PICTURES AND TALK ABOUT IT.>>GUEST: THIS WOULD BE MEMORY LANE, AND THIS IS JOSH MCDOWELL AND WE ARE THE ONLY PREACHERS AND YOU KNOW AND WE DID CRUISES TO THE BAHAMAS AND THIS IS ME ON TOP OF THE PIANO ON A SHIP. AND PEOPLE ARE HOLDING OVER THE BALCONY AND THIS IS A CRUISE. AND WE WERE ABLE TO GET INTO THE SCHOOLS IN JAMAICA ABOUT A THOUSAND EACH. AND WE GAVE THE GOSPEL TO THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND WE TOLD THEM TO BRING IN EVERYBODY AND COME TO THE SOCCER STADIUM. AND THEN 72,000 SHOWED UP TONY EVANS WAS THERE, JOHN HAGEE WAS PREACHING, AND THERE WERE JUST SO MANY FAMOUS CHRISTIANS, CASTING CROWNS, AND WE HAD 22,000 PEOPLE GET SAVED DURING THAT CRUISE. AND THEN WE WENT TO EL SALVADOR. AND MY WIFE IS FROM EL SALVADOR. I WAS WITH RODNEY HOWARD-BROWNE. AND YOU KNOW, HE WANTED TO KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I HAD BEEN TO EL SALVADOR. AND YOU KNOW, AND YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO EL SALVADOR. AND YOU KNOW, I AM NOT SWIMMING WITH THE MONEY AND THE LORD TOLD ME TO SEND YOU TO EL SALVADOR. AND HE PAID FOR THE FLIGHTS. AND HE PAID FOR THE RENTAL CAR. AND WE HAD ABOUT 400 PEOPLE TO JESUS AT THE ALTAR CALL. THEY WERE SAVED AT THE ALTAR CALL. THIS IS GOING MORE QUICKLY THAN WE THOUGHT, BUT WE WANT TO GET TO NICARAGUA, AND YOU SPOKE TO ORTEGA.>>GUEST: AND YOU KNOW, LET’S PRAY ABOUT THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH. AND YOU KNOW, IT WOULD BE COMING OUT IN OCTOBER WITH AN AIRLINE. AND THERE WAS A MAN WITH A VISION FROM THE STATE OF TEXAS. AND HE SHALL BE TAKING PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD AND THEY WILL SEND THEIR BAGGAGE FOR FREE AND THEY CAN GET A HOLD OF THE BIGGER JETS AND THEY WOULD BE TAKING PEOPLE TO ISRAEL. AND THEY WOULD BE TAKEN CRUSADE TEAMS FOR THESE EVENTS. AND WE ARE NOW ON THE ADVISORY BOARD. AND WE WENT TO ALASKA AND WE WENT WITH THE TEAM FROM THE STATE OF TEXAS WE WERE HELPING AUTISTIC CHILDREN. AND WHAT AN OUTREACH. EVERYBODY IS IMPORTANT TO GOD. AND YOU KNOW YOU CAN GO AND LOOK IT UP, IT IS CALLED JUDAH ONE. IT IS GOING TO BE A CHRISTIAN AIRLINE.>>JANE: AND YOU JUST CAME BACK FROM NICARAGUA, SO TALK ABOUT THAT?>>GUEST: I HAVE A SAYING, AND IF YOU JUST HELP PEOPLE, WHO LOOK LIKE YOU, AND TALK LIKE YOU, AND JUST LIKE YOU, I THINK LIKE YOU, OR VOTE LIKE YOU, YOU WON’T LOOK LIKE JESUS. AND YOU KNOW PAUL SAID I WOULD BE ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN AND WHAT I LEARNED IN A MATHEMATICAL EQUATION THE NUMBERS HAVE TO BE EQUAL ON BOTH SIDES. THAT’S GOOD MATHEMATICS. AND ME AND MY WIFE, WE WENT INTO NICARAGUA, AND YOU KNOW AND WE MET WITH THE PRESIDENT AND THE CABINET AND WE WENT TO THE HOUSE OF DANIEL ORTEGA. AND WE MET WITH HIM AND HIS WIFE. AND NOW THE LORD IS OPENING THE DOOR AND IN THE FUTURE AND WE WOULD BEGIN TO BRING PEOPLE TO CHRIST. AND THAT WAS ME AND MY FRIEND MADELEINE. AND THAT WAS AT THE UNITED NATIONS AND I WAS WORKING ON A FAITH INITIATIVE AND THEY GAVE ME AN AWARD. I WAS PREACHING IN UGANDA AND THAT WAS AT THE NELSON MANDELA SOCCER STADIUM 118,000 PEOPLE WERE THERE THAT NIGHT. AND THAT WOULD BE PRESIDENT ORTEGA IN THEIR RESIDENCE. IT WAS SUCH AN HONOR TO PRAY FOR THEM. HIS WIFE WAS THE VICE PRESIDENT. AS I WAS GOING TO GO HOME TO THE AIRPORT, SOMEONE SAID, TELL FRANK, WE HAVE HAD MANY PASTORS PRAY FOR US BUT WE HAVE NEVER FELT THE POWER OF GOD LIKE THIS BEFORE. AND GOD DID A GREAT WORK AND THE LORD IS OPENING THE DOORS. AND IF HE WAITS TO RETURN, I MIGHT GO BACK. AND THIS WOULD BE HIS CABINET. AND THIS IS THE AMBASSADOR TO ISRAEL, AND THIS IS THE BIG PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE I SHARING AND WHEN I WENT IN I HAD A TRANSLATOR I WISH I HAD SOME WATER I SAID JESUS SAID THE GREATEST IS THE SERVANT. I HAD TO WASH THE FEET OF THE POLITICIANS AND YOU CANNOT SPEAK UNTIL YOU FIRST SERVE. AND GOD MADE WITH US RIGHT THERE AND THEY WERE BROKEN AND THAT GOES BEYOND POLITICS AND WHEN YOU WOULD BE LIKE A SERVANT AND NOT A CELEBRITY. AND YOU KNOW, BILLY GRAHAM WAS AN AMBASSADOR FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND WHEN YOU ELEVATE THE LORD, HE WILL ELEVATE YOU. AND YOU KNOW, AND THE DISCIPLES WERE IN A HONDA BECAUSE THEY WERE IN ONE ACCORD. AND YOU KNOW, AND JOHN WAS IN A TOYOTA AND HE WAS THE FORERUNNER TO JESUS. AND WHEN HE PROMOTED JESUS JESUS PROMOTED HIM. AND NO ONE WAS GREATER THAN JOHN THE BAPTIST IT IS ONE THING TO BE ENDORSED BY A HUMAN, BUT IT IS SOMETHING ELSE TO BE ENDORSED BY THE LORD GOD.>>JANE: AND YOU KNOW, YOU SOUND LIKE BILLY GRAHAM.>>GUEST: I WILL SEND YOU SOME LITERATURE. COME DOWN TO THE FRONT. I SOUND LIKE BILLY. [IMITATING BILLY GRAHAM]>>JANE: YOU SOUND EXACTLY LIKE HIM.>>GUEST: I SOUND LIKE MY BOSS. YOU KNOW I’M GOING TO BE GOING BACK, AND I GOT A LETTER YESTERDAY AND THEY DO SOMETHING IN JULY, I’LL BE GOING BACK TO PREACH TO 600,000 PEOPLE NEXT YEAR IT WILL BE 600,000 PEOPLE. AND I AM BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTS TO REACH VENEZUELA AND HONDURAS CHILI, COAST-TO-COAST, BRAZIL, AND GOD IS COMING BACK. AND PEOPLE SAY, YOU WILL SPEAK TO THE NATIONS AND SOMETIMES IT JUST SOUNDS LIKE A CLICHÉ. BUT IT IS HAPPENING. BUT THIS IS NOT MY EGO TRIP BUT THIS IS MISSIONS. AND YOU KNOW, I BELIEVE THAT GOD COULD REACH THESE COUNTRIES AND YOU KNOW BILLY GRAHAM’S SON-IN-LAW SAYS, HOLY SMOKES, HIS SON-IN-LAW WAS SAYING THAT IS JUST AMAZING. BILLY GRAHAM, AND YOU AND REINHARD BONNKE, AND WE CAN NEVER REACH THE WORLD WE TURN OUR BACKS ON PEOPLE AND YOU KNOW, JESUS COULD PREACH TO 5000 AND PREACHED TO ONE OF THE WELL. HE LOVES THE LEAST AND THE LAST AND HE LOVES THE LOST.>>BOB: AMEN AND AMEN.>>JANE:THAT WOULD BE SO GOOD.>>BOB: AND WILL BE RIGHT BACK AFTER THE BREAK SO STAY WITH US. MUSIC MUSIC EVERY PROJECT IS A PROCESS. GOD IS WORKING ON YOU AND HE HAS A PURPOSE AND A PLAN. HIS WORKMANSHIP CAN BE SEEN IN THE DETAILS OF JESUS AND HIS LIFE. WALK IN THE PROCESS. YOU CAN FIND YOUR PURPOSE. SILENCE MUSIC I WILL TELL YOU ARE MY HOPE WOULD BE IT IS NOT AN ORGANIZATION. IS NOT IN SOME PLAN OR IN A TREATY. IT IS IN A MAN, THE PERSON, WHO IS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. AND MY HOPE IS TOTALLY IN HIM. MUSIC ON RIGHT NOW HERE WE ARE BETWEEN TWO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE I WANT YOU TO MEET BIBLE TIARA AND HIS MOM AND HIS DAD WOULD BE RIGHT HERE, THIS IS SAL.

AND YOU KNOW AND WAS YOUR SON GOOD BOY?>>AND YOU KNOW AND YOU KNOW HE WAS A GOOD BOY FROM BEING A TEENAGER.>>I’M SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT. I HOPE I’M ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS, BOB. MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC MUSIC THE SEA OF GALILEE WOULD BE HOME OF OUR GREAT STORIES OF THE BIBLE JESUS WALKED ON THE WATER HERE. AND HE QUIETED THE STORM. AND HE CALLED THE DISCIPLES RIGHT HERE AT THIS CORNER. AND WHEN I COME TO THE LAND OF THE BIBLE I THINK OF ONE GREAT TRUTH. JESUS CAME TO US WITH ONE MESSAGE HE LOVES US AND HE WILL PAY THE PRICE FOR OUR SINS AND FORGIVE US AND AS HE CAME, HE SHALL COME TO YOU WHEREVER YOU WOULD BE, THERE IS HOPE AND JOY AND LIVE FOREVER MORE BECAUSE OF THE JESUS OF THE SEA OF GALILEE. I WANT YOU TO KNOW ISRAEL AND MY NAME IS ANDY COOK. YOU CAN KNOW ISRAEL RIGHT NOW.>>JANE: IT IS TIME FOR OUR SEGMENT OF WE THE PEOPLE. THE MORE YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AND TO BE INFORMED ABOUT OUR CHRISTIAN HERITAGE THE BETTER YOU SHALL BE AS A CITIZEN. ALL RIGHT LET’S LOOK, NOW LET’S LOOK AT THIS ADDITION OF WE THE PEOPLE. MUSIC MUSIC THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF DOCUMENTS THAT PROVE THE FOUNDING OF OUR COUNTRY WAS CHRISTIAN. LET ME SHARE ONE FACT AND HISTORY COULD BE POINT WOULD BE WANT TO MAKE IT FUN WITH THE GAME. AND WE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT VIRGINIA AND HOW LONG DID THEY HAVE A CHRISTIAN RELIGION? AND MAYBE THIS IS A TRICK QUESTION. AND THEY SAY THERE IS SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE AND MAYBE THE ANSWER WOULD BE ZERO. AND MAYBE IN THE FIRST YEAR, AND MAYBE 224 YEARS? THE ANSWER WOULD BE AND THE OFFICIAL RELIGION OF VIRGINIA WAS ANGLICAN FOR 224 YEARS. AND THEY HAVE HAD A CHRISTIAN RELIGION VERY LONG FOR ALMOST OVER 200 YEARS. I’M SAYING, AND THEY WOULD NOT FAVOR ANYONE DENOMINATIONS. AND THEY DID NOT WANT THE MONEY TO GO TO ONE DENOMINATION AND THEY DID NOT SEPARATE CHRISTIANITY BUT THEY DID NOT WANT TO HAVE THE CHURCH REPAIRS PAID FOR BY THE STATE. BUT WE WANT TO LET YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CHRISTIAN FOUNDING ABOUT VIRGINIA AND THE RELIGION WORSE ANGLICAN FOR 224 YEARS. AND THE FOUNDERS THEY WANTED TO IN INCLUDE CHRISTIANITY IN OUR GOVERNMENT. IT APPROVES THE TRUTH THEY INCLUDED CHRISTIANITY AND THE GOVERNMENT.>>BOB: AND WE HAVE BEEN TALKING WITH FRANK SHELTON AND THIS IS SO INSPIRING TO SEE HOW GOD COULD PUT EVERYTHING TOGETHER. AND FRANK, WE WANT YOU, TO PUT IT TOGETHER, AND YOU’VE GOT JUST A FEW MOMENTS, AND PLEASE TALK ABOUT JESUS AND HIS LOVE FOR THREE MINUTES.>>GUEST: I LOVED ADRIAN ROGERS AND HE WAS FROM BELLEVUE BAPTIST IN MEMPHIS. AND HE TOLD A STORY, AND YOU KNOW, THE MOST FREQUENTED TOURIST ATTRACTION IN CHICAGO WAS A CERTAIN BAR. IT WAS CALLED THE GATES OF HELL AND PEOPLE WOULD LINE UP EVERY NIGHT TO GET IN TO GET A DRINK IT WAS CALLED THE GATES OF HELL. AND THE MORE SINFUL THE MORE SUCCESSFUL AND THERE IS PLEASURE IN SIN FOR A SEASON. AND SOMEONE WENT TO CHICAGO AND HE WANTED A BEER AT THE GATES OF HELL AND THEY THOUGHT IT WAS A JOKE. AND HE SAID TO A LOCAL POLICE OFFICER COULD YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET TO THE GATES OF HELL? HE SAID GO DOWN TO STREETS AND THEN GO TO THE LEFT AND THERE IS A BIG CHURCH THAT TAKES UP ONE BLOCK IT IS CALVARY CALVARY BAPTIST AND HE SAID GO PAST THE CHURCH IS THE BARN. THE GATES OF HELL. AND THE POLICEMAN BEGAN TO CRY AND HE SAID IF YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO IF YOU GO PAST CALVARY YOU WILL WIND UP AT THE GATES OF HELL. AND THEN HE SAID BUT SIR IF YOU COULD STOP AT CALVARY YOU WANT GO. JESUS HE CLIMBED THE CROSS FOR YOU AND ME. AND YOU KNOW, HE STRETCHED OUT HIS ARMS TO LET YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU. AND HE WANTS YOU TO COME TO JESUS AND HE WOULD BE ABC, ADMIT YOU ARE A SINNER AND BELIEVE AND THEN CONFESS THAT HE IS LORD AND JESUS IS NOT A GOOD WAY TO HEAVEN BUT HE IS THE ONLY WAY AND TODAY YOU COULD BE SAVED OR GO TO HELL BUT NOT BOTH. SO JESUS, TO MY HEART AND FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS, AND TAKE YOUR BLOOD AND FORGIVE ME A MY SINS AND MAKE ME WHITE AS SNOW AND, TO MY HEART. I’M TRUSTING YOU BY FAITH. AND YOU HAVE RISEN AGAIN AND BECAUSE YOU LIVE I CAN ALSO SO TAKE ME TO HEAVEN. IN THE NAME OF JESUS AMEN AND AMEN.>>BOB: I WAS NEVER, I HAD NOT HEARD THAT STORY BEFORE. IT IS THE TRUTH, AND THE ENTIRE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.>>GUEST: SO HELP ME GOD.>>JANE: AND WE SPOKE WITH AN ATHEIST A FEW YEARS AGO, AND HE SAID, I THOUGHT I AM SURE THERE ARE MANY IF THEY DON’T KNOW CHRIST, THEY THINK AND IF THEY DIED, THEN THEY DO NOT EXIST ANYMORE BUT THIS IS NOT TRUE THIS IS NOT WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES. THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT TO A MAN. AND THE WAY OF IT WOULD LEAD YOU TO DEATH. AND THE BIBLE SAYS THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY SOMEONE CAN’T BE SAVED JESUS CAME TO SAVE THE LOST. HE TRANSFORMS YOUR LIFE. AND WE COULD TALK FOR MANY HOURS AND TELL YOU OF ONE MIRACLE AFTER THE OTHER. SO MANY MIRACLES AND WHEN WE SAW ANGELS PROTECTING US. AND KEEPING US OUT OF AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS ARE WE HAVE BEEN HEALED AND YOU KNOW HE DOESN’T JUST SAVE YOU BUT HE CAN HEAL YOU AND DELIVER YOU AND HE WANTS TO BREAK THE BANDS OF THE ENEMY AND GO MIGHT. AND MAYBE YOU CANNOT SLEEP. JESUS SAYS FROM ISAIAH MAYBE I SEE A SIXTY-ONE AND SIXTY-ONE SAYS HE CAME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. AND TO SET THE PEOPLE FREE AND TO GIVE YOU BEAUTY FOR ASHES AND WE ARE THE WITNESSES THAT HE DOES IT BUT YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO HIM AND THERE IS NO TELLING WHAT YOU MIGHT DO AND HE CAN OPEN THE DOORS THAT YOU COULD SHARE THE GOSPEL I REMEMBER SITTING IN A CAR I HAD TAKEN SOMEONE TO THE KMART. I WAS READING A BOOK TO BUILD MY HEART. AND I WOULD KEEP GOSPEL TRACTS IN MY PURSE. AND THE LORD SAID NOW GO GIVE THAT TRACK TO SOMEONE IN THE CAR. I GOT IT OUT, AND THEN I SAW THERE WERE TWO FOLKS, I GOT ONE FOR ONE AND THEN SOMEBODY ELSE IN THE BACK. AND THEY HAD TAKEN SOMEONE TO THE KMART SO THEY WERE IN THE CAR. I GAVE THEM THE GOSPEL TRACTS, THEN SOMEBODY BEGAN TO KNOCK ON THE WINDOW. IT WAS A YOUNG MAN AND HE SAID WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? I WAS BESIDE MYSELF AND I SAID YES. HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO CHRIST RIGHT THEN AND THERE. HE SAID I CANNOT WAIT TO CALL MY FAMILY BECAUSE THEY WILL BE SO EXCITED. IT IS SO EXCITING TO SHARE THE GOSPEL.>>BOB: I JUST WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU, VERY QUICKLY DO NOT MISS CALVARY PLEASE STOP AT CALVARY AND YOU WILL NEVER BE SORRY AN HOUR CLOSING SONG WOULD BE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS IT IS MARK PAYNE COMING UP NOW.
