Bring It OnLine: Angels

I only recall Bible passages that refer to male angels. Did God create female angels as we often see depicted in illustrations and on TV? I once heard in a sermon that after Jesus died on the cross, he went to hell until he was resurrected. ... Read Transcript


Terry: WE HAVE SOME

GREAT E-MAIL QUESTIONS FROM

ALL OF YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE SOME

TIME TO ADDRESS THIS.

THE FIRST ONE IS FROM CRAIG,

WHO SAYS, "I ONLY RECALL

BIBLE PASSAGES THAT REFER TO

MALE ANGELS.

DID GOD CREATE FEMALE

ANGELS, AS WE OFTEN SEE

DEPICTED IN ILLUSTRATIONS

AND ON TV?"

Pat: NO, HE DIDN'T.

THERE ARE NO FEMALE ANGELS

IN THE BIBLE.

MICHAEL, GABRIEL, RAFAEL,

ALL MALES.

JESUS SAID IN THE

RESURRECTION, YOU'RE GOING

TO BE LIKE THE ANGELS, WHERE

THERE IS NEITHER MARRIAGE OR

THE GIVING OF MARRIAGE.

SO THE IDEA OF FEMALE, MALE

SEXUAL RELATIONS -- IT

DOESN'T EXIST.?

SO ANGELS ARE KIND OF LIKE

SEXLESS, BUT THEY'RE GIVEN

MALE NAMES.

BUT I HAVE A SQUABBLE WITH

MY DEAR WIFE.

IT IS NOT A VERY SERIOUS??

SQUABBLE.

BUT SHE HAS ALL OF THESE

ANGELS FOR CHRISTMAS.

Terry: SHE PUTS THEM ON

YOUR TREE.

Pat: SHE PAINTS THEM

AND SHE HAS THEM.

THEY'VE ALL GOT DRESSES.

I SAID, LISTEN, MICHAEL

DOESN'T WEAR A DRESS.

SO IN ANY EVENT, THAT'S OUR

LITTLE PROBLEM.

Terry: I THINK YOU GUYS

ARE GOOD TO GO.

Pat: I'VE LEARNED TO

LIVE WITH IT.

I LOVE HER DESPITE THE

DRESSES ON THE ANGELS.

[LAUGHTER]

Terry: THIS IS KAYLIN

WHO SAYS, "I ONCE HEARD IN A

SERMON AFTER JESUS

DIED ON

THE CROSS, HE WENT TO HELL

UNTIL HE

WAS RESURRECTED.

IS THIS TRUE?

I HAVEN'T FOUND ANY BIBLICAL

TEXT TO BACK THIS UP."

Pat: NONE WHATSOEVER.

THE BIBLE SAYS HE PREACHED

TO THE SPIRITS, AND THAT

MEANT ALL THOSE HELD IN

CAPTIVITY PRIOR TO HIS

COMING HAD A CHANCE TO HEAR

THE BIBLE.

THAT'S WHAT IT SAYS.

Terry: THIS IS VALERIE

WHO SAYS, "MY PASTOR DOES

NOT SERVE COMMUNION IN OUR

CHURCH BECAUSE HE SAYS HE

DOES NOT HAVE A DEACON IN

THE CHURCH.

DOES THE BIBLE STATE RULES

FOR SERVING COMMUNION?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY HE

COULDN'T SERVE AND PARTAKE

IN COMMUNION?"

Pat: I THINK THAT GOOD

BROTHER IS

A LITTLE

WEIRD.

THAT'S WEIRDNESS.

Terry: I HAVE NEVER

HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

Pat: THERE IS NOTHING

IN THE BIBLE THAT INDICATES

THAT SOMEBODY CAN'T SERVE

COMMUNION.

Terry: YOU DO THAT

AND

YOU PARTAKE YOURSELF?

Pat: OF COURSE.

OF COURSE.

WHERE TWO OF YOU ARE

GATHERED TOGETHER, I AM IN

THE MIDST.

IT

IS LIKE A FAMILY CAN MEET

TOGETHER AND THEY SHARE IN A

COMMUNAL MEAL.

YOU DON'T HAVE A DEACON AND

THE DEACON HAS GOT TO SERVE

YOU.

NOT BIBLICAL.

Terry: AND YOU'RE

MISSING OUT ON SOMETHING

BECAUSE THERE IS SOMETHING

THAT HAPPENS IN COMMUNION.

JORDAN SAYS, "I HAVE ALWAYS

BELIEVED THAT PEOPLE OF

MUSLIM FAITH SERVED A

DIFFERENT GOD THAN

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.

RECENTLY I BEFRIENDED A

MUSLIM, AND LISTENING TO HIM

HAS BROUGHT UP QUESTIONS IN

MY FAITH.

IS ALLAH THE SAME GOD THAT

THE CHRISTIANS SERVE?"

Pat: IM FAT

EMPHATICALLY NO.

THE GOD OF THE BIBLE IS

YAWAY, WHATEVER NAME.

HE IS THE GOD OF BEING.

AND HIS NAME IS HE WHO

CAUSES EVERYTHING TO BE.

ALLAH LOOKS AS IF IT IS A

DERIVATIVE OF THE OLD PAGAN

BAAL.

THERE IS SOME WHO THINK HE

MAY BE THE MOON GOD OF

MECCA, WHO WAS NAMED HUBAL.

BUT ALLAH IS NOT THE SAME

GOD THAT THE CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS SERVE.

HE IS NOT, NOT AT ALL.

TO THINK YOU'RE GOING TO GET

A TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE

THAT IS GOING TO TAKE ALLAH

AND YOU'RE GOING TO CALL

THAT GOD.

NO.

NO.

Terry: JUST THE

WRITINGS, THE TWO DIFFERENT

WRITINGS, THE QURAN AND THE

BIBLE --

Pat: THEY'RE COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT.

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO

WANT TO -- IN MUSLIM

COUNTRIES, THEY'RE GOING TO

USE -- WHEN THEY FIND A

BIBLICAL THING ABOUT GOD,

THEY PUT ALLAH IN THERE.

NO.

HE IS NOT ALLAH.

HE IS YAWAY.

HE IS --

Terry: THE GREAT I AM.

Pat: THE GREAT I AM.

Terry: A ANONYMOUS

WRITER SAYS, "I'M ALWAYS

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY AND

FIND MYSELF VERY

DISAPPOINTED WITH QUOTE THE

PLAN GOT HAS FOR MY LIFE.

MY QUESTION IS: WHAT IF

YOU'RE FOT A FA NOT A FAN

OF THIS PLAN?

WHAT THEN?"

Pat: I THINK THE FIRST

THING YOU HAVE TO GET

STRAIGHT IS WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO YOU IS NOT

NECESSARILY QUOTE GOD'S PLAN

FOR YOU.

SHAKESPEARE WHO SAYS, THE

FAULT IS NOT WITH BRUTUS,

FROM THE STARS THEMSELVES?

I THINK A LOT OF YOUR

PROBLEMS COME FROM YOUR

REACTIONS.

YOUR OWN ABILITIES AND YOUR

OWN WORK --

Terry: EVEN CHRONIC

ILLNESS OR WHEN PEOPLE HAVE

GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT IN

LIFE --

Pat: CHRONIC ILLNESS

CAN ALSO COME ABOUT FROM

PSYCHO

PSYCHOSEMATIC

PROBLEMS, AND I DON'T WANT

TO MAKE A STATEMENT BECAUSE

DOCTORS SAY THERE ARE OTHER

THINGS.

OF COURSE THERE ARE.

IT JUST SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE

A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE.

YOU OUGHT TO PRAISE THE

LORD.

A MERRY HEART DOETH GOD LIKE

MEDICINE.

A MAN SHALL EAT GOOD BY THE

FRUIT OF HIS LIPS.

YOU CAN LITERALLY SPEAK GOOD

AROUND YOU AND THE RESULTS

BEGAN TO CHANGE.

IF YOU SPEAK NEGATIVE, YOU

WILL HAVE NEGATIVE.

SO DON'T SAY IT'S QUOTE

GOD'S PLAN.

Terry: WHEN YOU'RE IN

NEGATIVE SITUATIONS, HOW

WOULD YOU SPEA

K

POSITIVELY?

Pat: YOU START PRAISING

GOD.

YOU REALIZE THE GREATNESS OF

GOD.

YOU REALIZE THE LOVE OF GOD

FOR YOU.

YOU REALIZE HOW WONDERFUL

GOD IS, THAT HIS INTENTION

TOWARDS YOU IS GOOD AND NOT

EVIL.

THAT HE WANTS TO PROSPER YOU

AND GIVE YOU HOPE.

READ WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS AND

QUOTE SCRIPTURE AND SAY IT,

AND IT WILL GET INTO YOUR

MIND.

AND THEN THAT BECOMES PART

OF YOU.

Terry: THIS IS JUDY WHO

SAYS, "I HAVE BECOME FRIENDS

WITH SOME PEOPLE AND

RECENTLY REALIZED THEY'RE IN

THE NEW AGE BELIEF.

MY OTHER FRIENDS ARE

ADVISING ME TO STAY AWAY

FROM THESE PEOPLE BECAUSE

THEY'LL TRY TO CHANGE MY

BELIEFS.

I FIND THESE NEW AGE PEOPLE

ARE THE MOST LOVING AND

POSITIVE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.

I DON'T WANT TO END THESE

RELATIONSHIPS.

WHAT WOULD YOU

DO?"

I BELIEVE THE FLOWER PEOPLE

AND HIPPIE PEOPLE ARE

WONDERFUL.

Terry: I

WAS ONE OF

THEM.

Pat: MAKE LOVE, NOT

WAR.

BUT THEY WERE A LITTLE BIT

WAY OUT.

AND, YES, THEY WILL TRY TO

CHANGE YOU.

LET'S HAVE FREE LOVE.

THAT'S COOL.

LET'S SMOKE A LITTLE GRASS.

THAT'S COOL.

LET'S HAVE SOME CHANTS

TOGETHER.

IT DOESN'T MEAN THEY'RE NOT

NICE PEOPLE.

THEY'RE FUN.

THEY ARE WRONG, AND, YES,

THEY WILL CORRUPT THE WAY

YOU LIVE.

YOU NEED TO COME TO A POINT

WHERE YOU SAY, I'M GOING TO

LIVE FOR JESUS.

AND IF YOU CAN'T CHANGE

THEM, DON'T LET THEM CHANGE

YOU.

AND YOU WERE ONE?

Terry: I WAS ONE.

I BELIEVE I STILL HAVE THOSE

LOVE BEADS SOMEWHERE.

Pat: AND YOU ARE SO

SERIOUS AND MATERNAL.

YOU WERE A FLOWER CHILD?

DARLING, I AM SHOCKED.
