Terry: TIME FOR

E-MAIL.

SHE ASKS, "WHAT IS THE

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A

CHRISTIAN AND THE MESSIANIC

BELIEVER?"

Pat: I THINK THE

MESSIANIC BELIEVER IS A

CHRISTIAN.

IT IS A JEWISH NAME FOR

THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE

MESSIAH AND JESUS IS I IS

THE MESSIAH.

IN MY OPINION, THEY'RE

ABSOLUTELY CHRISTIAN.

Terry: ANN SAYS,

"YESTERDAY MY 17-YEAR-OLD

GRANDDAUGHTER SAID GOD

DOESN'T KNOW EVERYTHING.

AND I ASKED HER HOW SHE CAME

UP WITH THIS.

AND SHE SAID IN SCHOOL, FROM

SOCIOLOGY.

MY HEART JUST TURNED.

I DON'T WANT THE ENEMY TO

STEAL MY GRANDCHILD.

I HAVE FIVE GRANDCHILDREN.

WHAT CAN I SAY TO HER FACE

TO FACE?"

Pat: IT'S EASY, ANN,

ASK HER A QUESTION: WHAT IS

IT THAT GOD DOESN'T KNOW?

AND DID HE TELL YOU?

NO, I HEARD IT FROM MY

SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR.

HOW DOES HE KNOW?

WHAT DID GOD TELL HIM?

WHERE WAS HE AND WHERE WERE

YOU WHEN GOD LAID THE

FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH?

AND DO YOU KNOW ALL OF THE

MYSTERIES THAT ARE IN THE

WORLD.

15BILLION YEARS AGO, WERE

YOU THERE THEN?

CAN YOU EXPLAIN ALL OF THOSE

THINGS.

ASK HER, WHAT IS IT THAT GOD

DOESN'T KNOW?

AND HOW DID YOU FIND OUT HE

DOESN'T KNOW IT?

Terry: FOR STARTERS.

Pat: FOR STARTERS, IT

WILL GET HER LITTLE MIND

RUNNING THE WAY IT OUGHT

TO.

Terry: LINDA SAYS,

"PAT, WHAT IS IS THE TRUTH

ABOUT BEING BORN AGAIN?

DOES IT AUTOMATICALLY HAPPEN

WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE TO

JESUS AND EXCEPT HIM AS

LORD?"

Pat: WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR

HEART TO JESUS AND ACCEPT

HIM AS LORD AND YOU REALLY

REPENT OF YOUR SIN AND YOU

REALLY ACCEPT HIM, THEN YOU

ARE BORN AGAIN.

AND THAT THING IS A

TRANSACTION OF THE SPIRIT.

SO IT IS BEING BORN OF THE

SPIRIT.

IT'S THE SAME THING.

Terry: JANICE SAYS, "I

KNOW ISRAEL HAS 12 TRIBES,

BUT WHY WAS IT MADE INTO TWO

NATIONS, ISRAEL AND JUDAH?"

Pat: IF YOU RECALL ON

THE DAYS OF SOLOMON, HIS ON

REOBOAM WAS CRUEL.

AND 10 TRIBES REVOLTED

AGAINST HIM AND THEY FORMED

ISRAEL.

AND THE ONE THAT STAYED WITH

THE OLD KING WAS JUDAH AND

BENJAMIN.

SO THAT'S HOW YOU SPLIT IT

UP TO 10 AND 2, AND THEN

THERE ON IT WAS ONE NATION

OF ISRAEL IN MODERN DAYS.

Terry: KIM SAYS, "FOR

THE LAST MONTH OR SO I'VE

BEEN SUFFERING WITH

INSOMNIA.

I PRAY TO GOD EVERY NIGHT,

ASKING HIM TO LET ME GET A

FULL NIGHT SLEEP, BUT HE

ISN'T ANSWERING MY PRAYER.

DOESN'T HE WANT ME TO GET

SLEEP?

HOW DO I GET SLEEP?"

Pat: THE BIBLE SAYS

DON'T FORSAKE WISDOM.

AND WISDOM SAYS YOU WANT TO

SLEEP, TAKE MELATONIN.

Terry: WHAT'S THE VERSE

FOR THAT?

[LAUGHTER]

Pat: 16: 5, TAKE

MELATONIN.

Terry: IT IS NATURAL,

THOUGH.

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS

NATURAL.

BUT YOU SLEEP IN A DARK

ROOM.

YOU CUT YOUR TEMPERATURE

DOWN TO, LIKE, 65° WHEN YOU

SLEEP.

YOU DON'T WATCH EXCITING

TELEVISION BEFORE YOU GO TO

SLEEP.

YOU DO ALL OF THESE THINGS

AND YOU RELAX.

DON'T FORSAKE WISDOM.

YOU SAY, GOD, HELP ME GET

SLEEP.

HE HAS TOLD YOU HOW TO GET

SLEEP.

JUST OPEN YOUR EYES AND FIND

OUT HOW.

Terry: I'M AMAZED AT

THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO

HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THAT.

Pat: AND GET A GOOD

MATTRESS.

WE HAD A MATTRESS EXPERT.

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

THINGS THAT KEEP YOU FROM

SLEEPING WELL.

IF YOU HAVE BRIGHT LIGHT, IF

YOU HAVE NOISE, IF YOU'VE

GOT STUFF PLAYING ALL OF THE

TIME, IF YOU'RE CONSTANTLY

WORRIED ABOUT WHAT IS GOING

ON AT THE OFFICE -- YOU'VE

JUST GOT TO CHILL OUT.

AND YOU SAY ASK GOD -- WELL,

GOD WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO DO

THIS.

Terry: WE THANK YOU FOR

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.
