Bring It On: "The Chosen Ones"

If we are all equal in the eyes of God, why are the Jews "the chosen ones?" What is the purpose of fasting and can we fast for others? Can adultery be forgiven by God? Read Transcript


Kristi: VALERIE WRITES,

"I HAVE NEVER FASTED BEFORE,

BUT I HAVE HEARD THAT

SOMEONE SHOULD FAST AND PRAY

WHEN THEY REALLY WANT TO BE

CLOSER TO GOD.

CAN I FAST FOR SOMEONE

ELSE'S HEALING AND FOR THEIR

CHAINS TO BE BROKEN OFF.

MY SISTER LOVES THE LORD SO

MUCH, BUT IS STRUGGLING."

I'LL LET IT GO FROM THERE.

Pat: THERE ARE A WHOLE

NUMBER OF FASTS.

BUT THE BIGGEST FAST IS

YOU'RE GIVING YOUR HEART TO

THE LORD, AND YOU'RE TAKING

TIME FOR HIM, AND YOUR

SPIRIT IS GOING CLOSE TO

HIM.

NOW, YOU CAN DENY YOURSELF

FOOD, OR YOU CAN DRINK

JUICE.

IN THE CASE OF DANIEL, HE

DIDN'T EAT ANY MEAT OR

SWEETS FOR A PERIOD OF TIME,

NO PLEASANT BREADS.

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE LORD

SPEAKS TO YOU ABOUT.

THE BIGGEST THING IS I'M

GOING TO GIVE MYSELF TO

PRAYER TO GOD.

THAT'S WHAT A FAST IS.

AND, YES, YOU CAN FAST THAT

PEOPLE BE SET FREE FROM

BONDAGE, NO QUESTION.

Kristi: NEXT QUESTION,

"PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME, IF

WE'RE ALL EQUAL, THEN WHY

ARE THE JUICE TH JEWS THE

CHOSEN ONES."

Pat: I THINK GOD CHOSE

ME TO BE ON TELEVISION.

AND HE CHOSE KRISTI TO BE

DOING SOMETHING ON

TELEVISION.

DO YOU FEEL CHOSEN?

Kristi: I FEEL CHOSEN.

Pat: I FEEL CHOSEN.

WELL, THE JEWS WERE CHOSEN

TO HAVE THE ORI CAL ORICALS

OF GOD.

IT WAS THROUGH THEIR LINE,

ABRAHAM ON DOWN THE LINE

THROUGH MARY AND JOSEPH.

THEY WERE CHOSEN FOR THAT,

TO RECEIVE THE ORICLES OF

GOD.

WE'RE ALL CHOSEN.

YOU'RE CHOSEN FOR

SOMETHING.

GOD HAS A ROLE FOR

EVERYONE.

I THINK EVERYONE NEEDS TO

UNDERSTAND THERE IS A

DESTINY FOR EVERY ONE OF

US.

THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID I'M

LAYING HOLD OF THIS.

BUT I WILL LAY HOLD OF THE

REASON THAT GOD LAID HOLD OF

ME.

THE APOSTLE PAUL, YOU KNOW

WHAT HE DID.

HE WROTE ALL OF THESE

WONDERFUL BOOKS.

HE WAS AN APOSTLE.

SO HE HAD HIS CALLING.

HE SAID, THAT'S THE REASON

CHRIST LAID HOLD OF ME.

Kristi: KAREN SAID, "IS

THE NAMING OF ANGELS, OTHER

THAN MICHAEL AND GABRIEL

NAMED IN THE BIBLE, OKAY?

I WAS TOLD THE NAME DINA IS

THE ANGEL WHO ACQUIRES

THIRST, AND HIS ANGEL HAS

TAUGHT HUMAN HOW TO SPEAK.

HOWEVER, IT DOESN'T LINE UP

TO GOD'S WORLD.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF PEOPLE

BELIEVE THE ANGELS NAMES

SHOULD BE WORSHIPPED?"

Pat: DON'T DO IT.

DON'T WORSHIP NAMES.

DINA -- I THOUGHT SHE WAS A

SINGER.

HER NAME WAS DIANAH SHORE.

Kristi: SHE ASKS, "CAN

ADULTERY BE FORGIVEN BY

GOD?"

Pat: OF COURSE.

ALL SINS CAN BE FORGIVEN BY

CHRIST.

WE'RE ALL SINNERS, AND WE'VE

ALL FALLEN SHORT FROM THE

GLORY OF GOD.

WE'VE ALL SINNED.

OF COURSE ADULTERY CAN BE

FORGIVEN.

THE THING IS CONFESS YOUR

SIN AND FORSAKE YOUR SIN AND

ASK THE LORD FOR CLEANSING,

AND HE WILL DO IT.

SEVEN TIMES 70, HE WILL DO

IT.

HE WILL FORGIVE YOU.

THANK GOD HE FORGIVES US.

I COULDN'T STAND IT IF HE

COULDN'T FORGIVE ME BECAUSE

I DO SO MANY THINGS THAT ARE

DISPLEASING TO HIM.

A GREAT MAN OF GOD SAID

THERE ISN'T ONE DAY I DON'T

PLEADE THE BLOOD OF

CHRIST.
