Bring It On-Line: Concentrating on God

If Jesus is the only way to salvation, what happens to everyone who died before His death? Since becoming a Christian, I have dreams about people. Should I share them or keep them to myself? What is your Christian view on the Menorah--is it ... ... Read Transcript


Kristi: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IT IS TIME FOR "BRING IT

ON," WHERE PAT IS GOING TO

ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.

YOU READY?

Pat: GO FOR IT.

Kristi: DAVID SAYS, "IF

YEESES IS THJESUS IS THE

ONLY WAY TO SALVATION, THEN

WHAT HAPPENED TO EVERYONE

WHO DIED BEFORE HIS DEATH?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT DURING THE TIME HE WAS

IN THE GRAVE, AFTER HIS

CRUCIFIXION, BEFORE HE ROSE

FROM THE DEAD, THAT HE WENT

AND PREACHED TO THE CAPTIVES.

AND THAT'S IN PETER.

AND THAT'S ALL WE KNOW.

SO THE IDEA IS THAT THOSE

PEOPLE WERE GIVEN A CHANCE

TO HEAR THE GOSPEL.

ALL RIGHT.

Kristi: OKAY.

CONTISHU -- GOD BLESS YOUR

NAME.

"I JUST GAVE MY LIFE TO

CHRIST SPIRITUALLY, AND I

STARTED TO HAVE DREAMS.

IN THESE DREAMS, GOD REVEALS

TO ME A LOT ABOUT OTHER

PEOPLE.

AM I ALLOWED TO SHARE THESE

DREAMS WITH OTHER PEOPLE?

I DON'T WANT THEM TO THINK

I'M MAKING THIS UP OR I'M A

FREAK.

IF I'M ALLOWED, HOW DO I

START?"

Pat: IF I WERE YOU, I

WOULD HOLD IT TO YOURSELF

UNTIL YOU VERIFY THOSE

THINGS.

BECAUSE YOU CAN SCARE THE

DAY LIGHTS OUT OF PEOPLE.

THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN

GOING TO PEOPLE AND TELLING

THEM GOD TOLD ME YOU'RE

GOING TO DIE IN THREE

DAYS -- OH, DID HE?

Kristi: I KNOW WHAT YOU

MEAN.

Pat: GO AHEAD.

Kristi: JOHN SAYS,

"DEAR PAT, WHAT IS YOUR

CHRISTIAN VIEW ON THE

MENORAH?

IS IT THE TRUE TRADITION OF

ISRAEL?"

Pat: IT IS.

IT IS THE FLAME IN THE

TABERNACLE.

IT IS A GOOD THING.

WHAT IS MY VIEW?

I THINK IT IS A WONDERFUL

SYMBOL OF ISRAEL AND THE

FLAME AND THE BRANCHES AND

THE CANDLESTICKS AND ALL OF

THAT.

READ THE OLD TESTAMENT.

IT IS THERE.

Kristi: JAMES SAYS,

"WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON A

THREE-DAY FAST?

I UNDERSTAND IT IS SUPPOSED

TO BRING YOU CLOSER TO

CHRIST.

I'M GOING BACK AND FORTHWITH

THIS, BECAUSE I'M PRAYING

FOR FULL BODY HEALTH BECAUSE

I HAVE NUMEROUS ISSUES.

WOULD THIS BE SOMETHING YOU

WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO, YOU

KNOW, PROVE MY FAITH?"

Pat: I'VE SAID ON THIS

PROGRAM FROM TIME TO TIME, I

DO HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH A

LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

EXPERTS ON HEALTH AND NEW

TRITIONS AN NUTRITION, BUT

I'M NOT A DOCTOR.

I DO NOT THINK THAT AN

EXTREME FAST MAY BE GOOD FOR

YOUR HEALTH.

MY FRIEND, WHO IS A

CARDIOLOGIST, CHELSEA, IS

REAL HIGH ON FASTING.

FASTING IS GOOD FOR YOUR

BODY.

IT CLEANSES IT OUT, BUT,

NEVERTHELESS, YOU'VE GOT

HEALTH ISSUES.

TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR.

I'M NOT THE ONE TO ANSWER

THAT QUESTION.

Kristi: DEBBIE SAYS, "I

HELPED FRIENDS AND FAMILY BY

QUICKLY LOANING THEM $4500

WHEN THEY WERE DESPERATE TO

MOVE INTO A RENTAL HOME.

THAT WAS OVER TWO YEARS AGO,

AND THEY NEVER EVEN

ACKNOWLEDGED THE DEBT.

THEY'RE STILL HAVING HARD

TIMES.

AM I WRONG TO REMIND MY

FRIENDS OF THIS DEBT?

I KNOW WE SHOULD HELP EACH

OTHER, BUT I FEEL TAKEN

ADVANTAGE OF."

Pat: I HAVE SAID

REPEATEDLY ON THIS PROGRAM,

YOU ARE NOT A BANK.

A BANK IS SET UP TO PROCESS

LOANS, TO COLLECT LOANS, AND

LEVY ON SECURITY OF LOANS.

YOU'RE NOT.

ON THE OTHER HAND, IF

SOMEBODY COMES AND THEY'VE

GOT A NEED, HELP THEM.

IT IS A GIFT AND FORGET IT.

THAT MONEY IS GONE.

LET IT GO.

ASK GOD FOR MORE.

TURN YOUR MIND ON TO

SOMETHING ELSE, OTHERWISE IT

WILL DRIVE YOU CRAZY.

I HAD BELONGED TO A TINY

MINISTRY IN NEW YORK THAT

HAD BEEN CHEATED OUT OF A

FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS.

EVERY TIME WE HAD A BOARD

MEETING, THEY BROUGHT UP

THIS LITTLE BIT OF MONEY.

IT WAS RIDICULOUS.

IT WAS A STUMBLING BLOCK

THAT PROHIBITED THIS

ORGANIZATION FROM MOVING

FORWARD.

IF I WERE YOU, LET IT GO.

AND IF YOU GET PAID,

HALLELUJAH.

IF YOU DON'T GET PAID,

HALLELUJAH.

GOD HAS GOT PLENTY MORE.

Kristi: AMEN.

JUNE SAYS, "HI, PAT.

SOMETIMES WHEN I PRAY, MY

MIND GOES SOMEWHERE ELSE.

I THINK ABOUT THE THINGS

GOING ON IN MY LIFE.

HERE IS THE DEAL: IS THE

DEVIL TRYING TO DISTRACT

ME?

I'M TRYING TO CONCENTRATE ON

GOD.

HELP ME.

HIHELP ME."

Pat: NO, IT IS NOT THE

DEVIL.

OUR MIND FLIPS AROUND.

WE SEE A BUG ON THE WALL OR

THE LIGHT IS OUT, OR

SOMETHING, SOMETHING,

SOMETHING.

YOU JUST -- I RECOMMEND

READING THE WORD.

I RECOMMEND PRAISE.

TALK TO GOD.

I PRAISE YOU, LORD.

I LOVE YOU, LORD.

VOCAL LIEIZE WHAT YOU'RE

DOING, AND LET YOUR WHOLE

BODY GIVE YOURSELF IN

PRAISE.

BUT IF YOU'RE JUST THERE

SAYING, OH, GOD -- YOUR MIND

IS GOING TO GO IN OTHER

DIRECTIONS.

THAT'S THE WAY OUR MINDS

ARE.

IT IS NOT THE DEVIL.

Kristi: I THINK WE HAVE

TIME FOR ONE MORE.

EARL SAYS, "I LOVE MUSIC AND

I'M PLANNING TO GET A RECORD

DEAL TO HELP MY FAMILY WITH

FINANCIAL DEBT.

MY PARENTS DON'T WANT ME

DOING MUSIC BECAUSE THEY

BELIEVE SINGING JAZZ AND

BLUES ARE NOT

CHURCH-RELATED.

I STILL GO TO CHURCH EVERY

DAY.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

SHOULD I QUIT MUSIC OR

NOT?"

Pat: ABSOLUTELY DON'T

QUIT MUSIC.

SING TO THE LORD A NEW

SONG.

THEY REJOICED IN DANCE AND

WITH MUSIC BEFORE THE LORD.

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE.

PRAISE THE LORD WITH SINGING

AND DANCE.

THAT'S THE EXPRESSION OF

PEOPLE.

LET THOSE EXPRESSIONS COME

FORWARD.

NOW SOME OF THIS STUFF IS

NASTY.

I THINK IN INDIA, THE PEOPLE

WERE SAYING WHY ARE THEY

CALLING ON THE DEMONS.

THEY WERE PLAYING HEAVY

METAL, ROCK MUSIC, AND THE

INDIANS SAID THIS IS THE

KIND OF MUSIC WE DO TO

SUMMON DEMONS.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GET INTO

THAT.

PRAISE THE LORD AND DO NOT

GIVE UP YOUR TALENT.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ORGAN

MUSIC IN CHURCH.

Kristi: AMEN!
