To Be Made in the Image of God Is a Powerful Thing
"Made of the image of God, you think about how powerful that is, and if you also just want a little early hat tip to the Trinity, it says in the original biblical Hebrew, let us make man in the image of God. In our image, yes. And you think about that, it's interesting because if you read the rabbi commentaries, they don't really know what to make of that. So there's all this kind of folklore. They say, oh, it's God talking to the angels or God talking to the animals. We have a very clear answer. It's the Trinity. And it's kind of a foreshadowing of the fulfillment of this idea of the Trinity. And but the thing that how God created was through rational speech and through speaking things into existence, he just said it. And also understanding that when the first 5 books of Moses were written, it was written when the world was largely pagan. The idea of a monotheistic God that just spoke things and they happened was in unconscionable concept at the time. It was all these polytheistic gods, the God of the sun, the God of the mood, the God of the river, the God of the flowers, the God of the and this idea that there's one God and omniscient on the present and is able to speak things into existence. It was a foreign concept. It was hard to wrap your head around. And it wasn't until the Greeks that they realized that man is significant over all other creation or even creation itself over all other distinctive animals. And so they started to celebrate man as being distinct and special. And that's where we get the original language of the scriptures. So because that's the language of the greatest philosophical thinkers of all time, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle. This is fascinating today.

Nothing to See: He Is Risen
"Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Matthew chapter 28 6, he is not here for he has risen as he said, come see the place where he lay is that not one of the most incredible verses in all the Bible. This angel speaking to the women here at the tomb who've come in mourning for his death and angels says he's not here. He is risen just like he told you, come look, there's nobody here. I remember the only time I've been to the Holy Land, was on a mission trip. We were doing a variety of work and some different places in Israel and Palestine and along the way we went to a few of the sites and I remember going to one of the sites that they think is where Jesus tomb was and the tour guide who is there. He just smiled. He was like, I don't know why. You came all the way over here. There's nothing to see here, and it was just a good reminder that that is the beauty of the gospel message. There's nothing to see. There's no body there. He's gone. And that was the point in Matthew chapter 28. He's not here. He's risen. He's gone. You can see where he was, but he's not there anymore because death did not hold on to him because he's a live and it's hard to imagine what went through the minds of these women, Mary hears this and looks and there's nobody there anymore and she realizes what he said was true. He's risen from the dead and this is the greatest news in all the world. Death has been defeated. Jesus has conquered the grave. So I think about memorial service for Clint Clinton that I went to last week, death is defeated. Though he dies, he lives and I think about the same for my dad and I think about the same for every saint who's gone before me. You who's put their trust in the death conquering king that though they died they live. And the same is true for you and me. For all who trust in Jesus that when we die, we live that death no longer has mastery over Jesus and death does not have mastery over us that live is Christ and to die is gain. Jesus has taken the very worst thing that could happen to us. And he's turned it into the best thing that could happen to us. He's not here for he is risen. Jesus we praise you for your resurrection from the grave. We join our hearts right now to say in a fresh way in this moment, all glory be to your name, the risen king, the death, conquering king. We praise you that when we go visit the Holy Land, there is nothing to see because you rose from the dead, walked among your disciples, your followers, then ascended into heaven and set your spirits so that you are walking today and the lives of your people in the Holy Land and every single place where we find ourselves right now, that it's not just a place for you one swamped that you are walking now. You are working in our lives through our lives. So we say yes today. Have your way in our lives. Lead us guide us by your spirit, our ascended death conquering king lead guide direct us for your glory for the spread of this good news, God, please help us to tell somebody today that death has been defeated and the life is possible in Jesus forever and God rep that you would use our lives and our families and our churches to make this good news known among all the nations among all the peoples of the world. We pray that Somalis would know this that North Koreans would know this. We pray that Berbers of Morocco would know this, God we pray that all the unreached, almost untouched tribes of the Amazon would know this. God we pray that the good news that you have raised Jesus from the dead would spread to all the peoples of the world. And he was used our lives toward that end. That we might be able to share this good news, like the angel did in Matthew 28 6. Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Day 16: The Suffering of Job
"We are reading today day 16 from chapter 31 and 32. Job 21 and 22 and proverbs three, 9 through 12. Let's get started. Genesis chapter 31 and 32. Now Jacob heard that the sons of Lebanon were saying, Jacob has taken all that was our father's and from what was our father's he has gained all his wealth. And Jacob saw that laban did not regard him with favor as before. Then the lord said to Jacob. Return to the land of your fathers and to your Kindred, and I will be with you. So Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah into the field where his flock was, and said to them, I see that your father does not regard me with favor as he did before. But the God of my father has been with me. You know that I have served your father with all my strength, yet your father has cheated me and changed my wages ten times, but God did not permit him to harm me. If he said, the spotted shall be your wages, then all the flocks or spotted. And if he said, the striped shall be your wages, then all the flock or striped. Thus God has taken away the cattle from your father and given them to me. In the mating season of the flock, I lifted up my eyes and saw in a dream that the he goats, which leaped upon the flock or striped, spotted and modeled, then the angel of God said to me in the dream, Jacob, and I said, here I am, and he said, lift up your eyes and see. All the goats that leap upon the flock are striped, spotted, and modeled. For I've seen all that laban is doing to you. I am the God of bethel, where you anointed a pillar and made a vow to me. Now arise, go forth from this land and return to the land of your birth. Rachel and Leah answered him. Is there any portion or inheritance left to us in our father's house? Are we not regarded by him as foreigners? Free has sold us, and he has been using up the money given for us. All the property, which God has taken away from our father, belongs to us into our children. Now then, whatever God has said to you, do.
Day 12 of the Bible in a Year: Isaac and Rebekah
"If we go on to the story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebecca, in genesis, chapter 24. Now Abraham was old, will advanced in years and the lord had blessed Abraham in all things. In Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his house who had charge of all that he had, put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the lord, the God of heaven, and of earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the canaanites among whom I dwell. But will go to my country and to my Kindred and take a wife for my son, Isaac. The servant said to him, perhaps the woman may not be willing to follow me to this land, must I then take your son back to the land from which you came? Abraham said to him, see to it that you do not take my son back there. The lord, the God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth and who spoke to me and swore to me your descendants, I will give this land he will send his angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. But if the woman is not willing to follow you, then you will be free from this oath of mine. Only you must not take my son back there. put his hand under the thigh of Abraham's master, and swore to him concerning this matter. Then the servant took ten of his master's camels and departed, taking all sorts of choice gifts from his master, and he arose, and went to Mesopotamia to the city of nehor. And he made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water at the time of evening. The time when women go out to draw water. And he said, oh, lord, God of my master Abraham, grant me success today. I beg you. And show mercy to my master Abraham. Behold I am standing by the spring of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. Let the maiden to whom I shall say, please let down your jar that I may drink. And who shall say drink, and I will draw water for your camels, let her be the one whom you have appointed for your 7 Isaac. By this I shall know that you have shown mercy to my master. Before he had done speaking, behold Rebecca, who was born to bethuel, the son of milka, the wife of nehor, Abraham's brother, came out with her water jar upon her shoulder. The maiden was very fair to look upon. A virgin whom no man had known. She went down to the spring and filled her jar, and came up. Then the servant ran to meet her and said, please, give me a little water to drink from your jar. She said, drink my lord, and she quickly let down her jar upon her hand and gave him a drink. When she had finished giving him a drink, she said, I will draw water for your camels also until they have done drinking. So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, and ran again to the well to draw, and drew for all his camels. The man gazed at her in silence to learn whether the lord had prospered his journey or not.

'Bomb cyclone' brings damaging winds, drenches California
"The fierce storm that pounded much of Northern California this week has left flooding, damaged buildings in at least two deaths in its wake. Hurricane force winds were clocked in the north bay region part of an atmospheric river that led to dozens of flight cancellations in San Francisco. But it's the human toll. That's the hardest to bear. Absolutely nightmare. It could happen to any family. A lean to Cheney's two year old grandson was killed when a redwood tree fell onto his family's mobile home. It happened in Sonoma county, neighbors helped pull out the crumpled debris to reach the toddler, but eon to chini could not be saved. He was a love and angel. Police in Fairfield, California you see a 19 year old woman died in a crash, her vehicle hydroplaned on a flooded road. Further south in Santa Cruz county. We did everything we could.

A Meditation on John 1:43-51 for Thursday Before the Epiphany
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to John, chapter one versus 43 through 51. After Jesus had decided to leave for Galilee, he met Philip and said, follow me. Philip came from the same town Beth seda, as Andrew and Peter. Philip found Nathaniel and said to him, we have found the one Moses wrote about in the law. The one about whom the prophet wrote, he is Jesus, son of Joseph from Nazareth. From Nazareth, said Nathaniel, can anything good come from that place? Come and see replied Philip. When Jesus saw Nathaniel coming, he said of him. There is an israelite who deserves the name incapable of deceit. How do you know me, said Nathaniel? Before Philip came to call you, said Jesus, I saw you under the fig tree. Nathaniel answered rabbi, you are the son of God, you are the king of Israel, Jesus replied, you believe that just because I said I saw you under the fig tree, you will see greater things than that. And then he added, I tell you most solemnly, you will see heaven laid open and above the son of man, the angels of God ascending and descending. What word made this passage come alive for you. What did you sense the lord saying to you?
A Look at Job 1-5: God Is Sovereign Over All
"Today's reading landed us about 400 years post flood and we met a man named job. Initially he sounds a lot like Noah, he's blameless and upright and fierce God. In Noah's story, things got really dark, then there was some relief at the end, and not to give spoilers but we'll see the same type of thing playing out in job story. Based on our conversation from day two, you may have noticed that job one 6 referred to the angels as sons of God, including Satan who, in his created form, is an angel. In job one 8, God initiates a conversation about job with Satan. One thing worth noting here, the word Satan means adversary, one who resists accuser. There's some debate about this, but many people believe Satan is not necessarily a proper name that refers to one being, but that it's a general term referring to God's adversary in this instance, a fallen angel who opposes God's reign. Later in scripture, we have references to a specific fallen angel named Lucifer, but there's reason to believe that the word Satan doesn't always refer specifically to Lucifer. There are many fallen angels who are God's adversaries. In fact, a lot of people believe that revelation 12 indicates that one third of all the angels God created ended up rebelling against him and were cast from heaven, so there are a lot of satans, and I think if our to pronounce that word correctly, it would be Satan. But I'm not going to try to get too weird here. After God initiates the conversation about job with one of his enemies, the enemy concocts a plan to test job and we see God allowing it. Here's what's noteworthy to me in this section. God didn't create the plan for testing job, but he allowed it. He wasn't the active agent in the evil perpetrated by Satan, but he was still sovereign over it, and in his mercy, he limited it. Satan was on a leash, he was not allowed to take job's life. Satan attacked job in a variety of ways in one 11 through 19, we saw that his losses came twice as acts of men, the sabaeans and the chaldeans, and twice as acts of nature, fire from heaven and wind. Quick sidebar, I wonder if the phrase fire from heaven is an old school way to refer to lightning. Regardless, God granted Satan the opportunity to influence both of those things, the acts of man and the acts of nature. For God to allow Satan to influence those things, means that God himself is the one who has control over those things. You can't give someone influence over something that isn't in your domain.
Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God: A Christmas Lectio Divina
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel of Luke, chapter two versus 16 through 21. The shepherds hurried away to Bethlehem, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger. When they saw the child, they repeated what they had been told about him, and every one who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds had to say. As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart. And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God. For all they had heard and seen. It was exactly as they had been told. When the 8th day came in the child was to be circumcised, they gave him the name Jesus. The name the angel had given him before his conception. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the lord saying to you?
A Meditation on Matthew 2: 13-15, 19-23 for The Feast of the Holy Family
"For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of the stay to the lord. Say slowly, from your heart, Jesus. I trust in you. You. Take over. Become aware that he is with you. Looking upon you with love. Wanting to be heard, deep within your heart. A reading from the holy gospel, according to Matthew, chapter two versus 13 through 15 and 19 through 23. After the wise men had left, the angel of the lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, get up. Take the child and his mother with you and escape into Egypt, and stay there until I tell you, because Herod intends to search for the child, and to do away with him. So Joseph got up and, taking the child and his mother with him, left that night for Egypt, where he stayed until Herod was dead. This was to fulfill what the lord had spoken through the prophet, I called my son out of Egypt. After Herod's death, the angel of the lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, get up, take the child and his mother with you and go back to the land of Israel for those who wanted to kill the child, are dead. So, Joseph got up and taking the child and his mother with him, went back to the land of Israel, but when he learned that archelaus had succeeded his father Herod as ruler of Judea, he was afraid to go there and being warned in a dream he left for the region of Galilee. There he settled in a town called Nazareth, in this way the word spoken through the prophets were to be fulfilled. He will be called a nazarene. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the lord saying to you?
Dr. Thomas Krannawitter: Progressives Judge the U.S. By 'Perfection'
"Things I've noticed as a scholar of American history and American politics, the critics, especially progressive critics of America, they tend to judge the United States by the standard of perfection. And of course, when they do that, the United States always falls short. The American people always fall short. They're not perfect. They're not angels. But what I like to do is change the discussion a little bit and compare Americans to other people, other nations of people. And if the story of the Americans, if what the Americans did to get rid of slavery, if that is woefully insufficient, if it is grossly immoral, they did too little. They acted too slowly. They didn't care enough about the rights of the enslaved people. If that's all true, show me a group of people who did it well. What's the model? Should we look to Europe? It took the English 900 years to get to the place where they were ready to abolish slavery. It took the French a millennium and a half, 1500 years. In Africa, slavery existed for thousands of years, and it didn't dawn on any one's mind that maybe we should get rid of the whole institution. The only discussion that you would find among African tribes was, well, it really sucks to be the slave. It's much better to be the master, but there was no discussion of simply getting rid of the entire institution.
Day 361 of The Bible in a Year: Judgment and Repentance
"We're reading revelations chapters 8, 9, ten, and 11, as well as Feynman and proverbs 31 versus 16 through 18. The revelation to John, chapter 8 the 7th seal and the golden sensor. When the lamb opened the 7th seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Then I saw the 7 angels who stand before God, and 7 trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden sensor, and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God. Then the angel took the sensor and filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it on the earth, and there were peels of thunder, loud noises, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake. The 7 angels and 7 trumpets. Now the 7 angels who had the 7 trumpets made ready to blow them. The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire mixed with blood, which fell on the earth, and a third of the earth was burnt up, and a third of the trees were burnt up. In all the green grass was burnt up. The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water. The name of the star is wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the water because it was made bitter. The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light was darkened. A third of the day was kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night. Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in mid heaven, wow, wow, woe to those who dwell on the earth. At the blasts of the other trumpets, which the three angels are about to blow.
Pastor Robert Jeffress: Christmas Isn't Just for Christians
"A pastor Jeffers I was reading the beautiful op-ed you wrote for Fox News, Christmas isn't just for Christians. Why is that? You know, I had a high school student in Orlando who watches our TV program, email me and said, what should I say to my classmates who keep disparaging Christianity and talking about all the evil that's been done in the name of Christianity? And I wrote back to her and this is the basis for the op-ed. I said, you know, you ought to go ahead and mate. You have some horrible things that have been done in the name of Christ, but many more good things have been throughout history, done in the name of Christ. I mean, think about it. Great works of art like the Sistine Chapel, great works of architecture like Notre-Dame, the founding of great colleges like Harvard and Yale, the printing press, all of these things. Benevolent organizations like the Red Cross and Salvation army, all of these things were created by followers of that baby born 2000 years ago in a feeding trial. And I think that's one reason Todd. The angels said that the shepherds becoming a Christ is good news of great joy for all the people. The whole world has benefited from the coming of Christ 2000 years ago. And of course, the main reason he came was to give us what we needed most to forgiveness of sins and that gift is available to everybody, bad does Catholics, Muslims, atheists, Jews. It's not just for some people, it's a gift for all people to receive. You know,
Mary: Surprised By Joy
"Wow. Can you imagine dealing with this surprise? So out of nowhere, an angel appears to marry. We know that she was greatly troubled. We know all in scripture that anytime angels appear, people are freaked out. They are scared. They fall in their face, they're like, oh my gosh, I mean, we just have to know that seeing an angel is not like a small thing to have happen. And it's terrifying. And so this angel comes to Mary and she's troubled at what he says. But he gives these sort of promises that we're going to build on today that you are highly favored. The lord is with you. Do not be afraid. And I think that when we deal with surprises of all kinds, we get to see from Mary, what happens with this surprise, her life is interrupted. She shows curiosity at the greeting and then there's acceptance right away in verse 38. It says, I am the lord's servant, Mary answered, may your word to me be fulfilled. And the angel left her. So this is the story of how she finds out that she's going to be pregnant with Jesus, even though she's never been with a man. And this crazy thing is going to happen. And she's going to be the one who carries the most high God. And she goes through this process of asking a few questions and coming to acceptance about what the angel has said to her. So Mary handles this surprise in a certain way. And I think we can ask ourselves, how do we handle surprises? What do we do when things defy our reality? And really, the whole story of Jesus defies our reality, the fact that Jesus was born of a virgin that he lived a sinless life that he did all of these miracles. All of this can feel so fanciful to our reality, but God operates in a different kind of reality. And as we open our eyes to see how God moves in our lives, we realize that things are not always as they seem. And we are not the boss of the world. And we are not the ones who understand how everything works and God is the one who understands how everything works. And God has given us a story and he's given us a life in his son Jesus that we get to follow that really Jesus life shows us what it looks like to live in communion with God and to live in love with other people. And we can spend our whole lives following Jesus way and learning the ways of Jesus before we meet him face to face.
Day 358 of The Bible in a Year: From Rebellion to Faithfulness
"We're reading the letter of Jude. We are also reading second letter of St. Paul to Timothy chapter one and two, as well as proverbs, chapter 31 versus one through 7. The letter of Jude salutation Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James. To those who are called, beloved in God the father, and kept for Jesus Christ, may mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. Occasion of the letter beloved being very eager to write to you of our common Salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For admission has been secretly gained by some who long ago were designated for this condemnation. Ungodly persons who pervert the grace of our God into a licentiousness and deny our only master and lord, Jesus Christ. Judgment on the ungodly. Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully formed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt afterward destroyed those who did not believe. In the angels that did not keep their own position, but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the deepest darkness until the judgment of the great day. Just as sodom and gomorrah and the surrounding cities which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. Yet in like manner, these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority and revile the glorious ones. But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, disputed about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him, but said the lord rebuke you. But these men revial whatever they do not understand, and by those things that they know by instinct as irrational animals do, they are destroyed. Woe to them. For they walk in the way of Kane, and abandon themselves for the sake of gain to balaam's error, and perish in Korra's rebellion. These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they boldly corral together, looking after themselves, waterless clouds carried along by winds, fruitless trees, and late autumn, twice dead, uprooted. Wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame. Wandering stars for whom the deepest darkness has been reserved forever. It was of these also that Enoch in the 7th generation from Adam prophesied, saying, behold, the lord came with myriads of his holy ones, to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness, which they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own passions, loud mouth boasters, flattering people to gain advantage.
A Look at Simeon's Prophecy
"Parents very quickly become accustomed to the approach of strangers who will often offer their congratulations and their observations and say kind things about your children. Now, in the case of Mary and Joseph, of course, we would anticipate that there would have been many kind and tender greetings expressed to them. And in one sense, they were already becoming very familiar with a dramatic nature of what had been entrusted to them in the gift of the sun. And yet it striking is it not that here in the 33rd verse following the prayer of Simeon, we read that a child's father and mother marveled at what was said about him. In other words, the events of the angels words and the gathering of the shepherds and so on had not dulled them in any way. They were still very alert. They were still wondering and they were marveling at the unfolding saga into which they had been thrust by the intervention of God. In verse 34, Simeon proceeds to, with a word of prophecy, which is going to make a tremendous impact, particularly on Mary. And I think it will agree that it is quite interesting that in verse 34 it says then Simeon blessed them plural and said to marry his mother singular. He addresses his word directly to the mother. Now, you will also know if you study your Bible that Joseph very quickly fades from the scene. We don't read much about Joseph after this at all. And some of the commentators are very straightforward. They say that Joseph died before Jesus ever began his earthly ministry. I'm not sure that it is possible to conclude that from the instruction of scripture, but nevertheless, I think it is a fair inference, and if that is to be the case, then we can understand why it would be that the spirit of God would direct this man to approach merely particularly in so far as she would be the one who would be bidding the brunt of what he was telling her. Incidentally, all that we know about this man, Simeon, we discovered here. He was righteous and devout, there is no indication that he was a religious figure, or that he was a priest, rather that he was an ordinary man who had an extraordinary devotion. And of course, God delights to pick up ordinary men and women and to infuse them with an extraordinary devotion.

"angel" Discussed on Greg Laurie Podcast
"You know right now. All around us is a supernatural world. It's an invisible world and around us right now. Are thousands of mysterious created beings called angels. Most of them are wholly. I'm sorry to say some of them are not some of them are fallen. But you find with the bible says about angels both the old and the new testament in fact the bible mentioned angels nearly three hundred times. And there's so many misconceptions about angels. Let me just say first off. The job of an angel is to kind of work undercover. I like to compare angels. Two navy seals navy seals are that elite force that we dispatch in certain situations. Take care of business. They go and do things all the time and we often don't hear about what they did. They just get the job done that sort of a good description of angels. They get the job done for god. They're not there to draw attention to themselves. They're not there to have extended conversations with them though. It's possible you have spoken with an angel. And i'll tell you why believe that in a few moments but you probably weren't aware of it. If you were speaking with an angel i would suggest you. There are hundred angels of spoken to you. But you probably didn't know it wasn't angel but they're very interesting creatures sort of working behind the scenes working undercover. There are sort of like god's secret agents but there's a lot of misconceptions as they said for starters. People think that that when we die we might become an angel heard said when someone dies well god must have needed another angel in heaven. Well god doesn't need any more angels in heaven and more to the point people don't become angels dot angels are created beings. There are there are group olander themselves. When we die we receive a new body and and so forth but but we have no connection to angels. And i hate to break this to you girls but it every appearance of an angel on earth. It was a guy not a girl. Now i know that is hard for some people to believe because we use the term means sometimes in a feminine way like she's pretty s and angel right. We generally say he's handsome as an angel. But actually all of the appearances of angels are appearing as men in the bible and so these are amazing created beans. That are they're working constantly in our life. It would appear from scripture that they are eternal it would seem as though they never die speaking of those who have died in gandhi heaven. Jesus said in. Luke chapter twenty neither. Can they die anymore. For their equal to the angels now angels have a specific ministry and the life of the christian. They are dispatched from heaven to assist us to encourage us to minister to us sometimes to protect us occasionally to speak to us hebrews one fourteen says. Angels are ministering spirits. Sent to serve those who will inherit eternal life. There's many instances in scripture were angels intervened and angel spoke to fill up and told them to go to the desert and he went and man came to faith from ethiopia. And then we have the story of peter who was taken to prison and and he was going to be executed because james had already been put to death by king herod and the church pray and an angel was dispatched to wake peter up and get him out of jail so an angel was sent as an answer. To prayer is a story in the book of genesis regardless speaking jakup just showing them the world event djelic activity and in jacob how did dream and his dream or vision. He saw stairway or a ladder of angels going up and down the stairway or up and down escalator. If you will just angels constantly a work moving between heaven and earth doing the work of god and has already said it's entirely possible you've met at angel you say well how would that be well. Hebrews thirteen to says don't forget to entertain strangers for doing so. Some people have entertained. Angels without knowing it so you know you you might say how would i know you probably wouldn't know maybe i'll know when you get to heaven and you'll be walking around and some angel walked up. And says hey. Thanks for getting me. That burger what you got me. That burger. i've i've we met with matt. Remember that homeless guy at you ran into and this date and i was hungry and i said can i get a meal and you took me into in an opera and you got me. Great burger double double has ever call animal style still remember it even want to thank you for that. You were an angel. Yes i was because the idea is that when you did for a stranger somebody that was anita could have been in angel undercover. So it's possible you've met an angel it's possible there's angels in the room right now. I know they're here on the invisible realm but it's not entirely outside of the realm of possibility that there could be an angel as a person so look around. Look around you never know. Don't look for feathers or anything like that. When it'd be mind blowing if an angel appeared to us right now i tell you what if an angel did appear. You'd be very tempted to worship the angel that actually happened to the apostle john in angel appeared he was so blown away fell down to worship it and the angel said do not worship me worship god but they're so incredible they're so on inspiring you'd be inclined to worse it. But imagine if gabriel or michael or another angel appeared before. I did hear a story about a time in a church service when the devil himself up here so here people at church and all of a sudden satan appears on the stage. People are screaming and freaking out. Climbing over each other. To get out of the church are climbing out of the windows running at the doors. They're terrified that churches emptied in just seconds except one older man sitting in the second row. The devil says why aren't you running. Do you know who i am. The meant says i know who you are. The devil says i'm the devil. I have a lot of power. I could bring a lot of misery into your life. Why aren't you afraid of me. The old guy said. I've been married to your sister for forty six years. That's a true story. Notice just one of those lane. Preacher jokes right. But i'll tell you angel of the lord appeared. We would certainly be amazed now. Sometimes we have guardian angels. I don't know the answer to that. But i think the answer is maybe i know we have angels evolved in our lives but do we have a specific angel that has assigned to us like. That's your job you watch over that child. You watch over that person we can no a with. There is an interesting statement where jesus has a matthew eighteen ten. Don't look down on these little ones. Speaking of children pry tell you they're angels in heaven always see the face of my father in heaven interesting phrase. They're angels in heaven so that would imply maybe a guardian angel going back to this story of peter. When he was sprung from prison by the angel he showed up at a house where a bunch of christians for praying and he knocked on the door and they couldn't believe that god answered their prayer so quickly and so when someone said it was actually a lady named rhoda she said. Peter is standing at the front door knocking. One of the other said well. It's probably just his angel and they left them knocking. I mean for me if an angel knocks. I'm i'm letting them in heya fed ex knox. I opened the door when i opened the door for an angel curious thing but it's interesting that they say maybe it's his angel so maybe there are guardian. Angels if there are there are not. That's really not that important. You can just be confident of this..

Guest starring alex kingston returning as river song after her spectacular debut.

"This is the first for me. I guarantee i've never handled a case with anybody. You know of that age or anywhere around that age bracket you know. So it's a it's amazing to think that got some problems so many issues with the paranormal. Let her know tender age of in her eighties. So i have It's a personal story for me One was my grandpa He was ninety eight ninety seven. Something like that and We all is. This is the last supper that last dinner ahead with my grandpa in a sweet sweet old man you know. Great guy. Love them. Death man Pau texts you know We were sitting around and save a one time. My mom's house in a he's comma jamesy. That was his name for me. It was jamesy in a. He's always called me that. Since i was a little kid in a we're sitting around and he says jamesy We're all table. You know just paint a picture. It's me and my mom and dad and you know everybody there. And he sit across romania. Jamesy no I had some people come to my house Wanting to paint my house and like yeah and he's like yeah and my dad looked at me. He's like no like shut it down. Like don't don't say anything. So being the rev lamb you know just went into it. I'm like fuck you know. Hey so they wanted to paint your house right. he's like. Yeah just just the backstory. My grandpa never had dementia. You know like that alzheimer's anything like that. He lived to be about Ninety nine ninety eight ninety nine years old man he was you know he. He hung in there for a long time and he was sharp. He was an engineer. A very smart guy You know look up to him. Great guy and i was like they wanted to paint your house. She's like pot. You gotta brick house. Why would they want to paint a brick house. He's like well. You know I got the siding on the house. So they wanted to paint that and it was a lady in a guy in to their kids in a we talk outside for a little bit and then they walked in the house and we talked inside for a little while and the next thing you know they vaporized and that's the best the term he used. He said they vaporized in his living room. And i was like what he said. Yeah they just. Paper is out of nowhere. They just they went away. Now that's weird. You know and in that point i was kind of like my skin started the crawl because i was like damn sure have kept this going on or should i just shut up and played it off and change the subject but when he said they vaporized in front of him. That really really freaked me out. I was like oh shit. And he's never been one to have dementia or anything like that you know. He ended up in a home Because my grandma died we used to call her granny. She died back into nineties. Back about ninety seven Sweet sweet sweet old lady. I love her to death. She was great. That was her favourite Colorado like just well. She ended up dying back in like ninety seven. Something like that. And he stayed on his own In a ranch house in a form house you know by a black louisiana. Plenty acreage and stuff like that. He got too old to handle it. And then they moved into a new house He had a two bedroom house or a three bedroom house. And she died in that house and He stayed on his own. You know from there and when she was going on his own and You know he wouldn't call with any bullshit he wouldn't call and say like hey you know there's a water leak and all of the house you know like the typical dementia patients. You know they see a lot of water in the house or They'll see things that are kind of catastrophic. You know like like the toilets leaking all over the house or you know like i got lights burning out some catching fire like those things like that. But he didn't do that he just out of nowhere came up with this story. That like people vaporized in his house. And that's the term he used and when he said vaporized. I was like well. That's a pretty You know intriguing Term to use or that you know that's a pretty definitive Term to describe somebody disappearing. Dave vaporized in front of you. You know he didn't. He didn't say disappeared. He didn't say they walked out. He didn't say they just vanished. She said vaporize. And that was a really weird thing for me and it's always hung with me and You know try to picture with a person would look like vaporizing i can think of. Is you know when they stepped on a landmine or you know get beamed up to you. Know to the starship enterprise or something like that. Well you know the really weird term from me and it always stuck with me. Jane doe always under. Yeah yeah that room. when you say vaporizes. It almost reminds me of the story of that wolf that i told you about. Remember that we're kind of like right in front of us. That's kind of what that brings to mind when you speak about these people vaporizing. There's so it's kind of kind of creepy when you think about it but it also brings up It also brings up the black guy. Chilton moniker. not which a lot of people claim to block children are demonic. Very weird. That is bringing weird. You know who knows what he saw. You know he. He describes it the best he could. And but what what. What did he really see. You know ditties you know how much of an impact in how best could you describe that impact to us. You know not to make things awkward at the table that we're sitting at at that time and it was really weird in in hung on me a lot and i thought about that a lot and it was just something that stuck with me man and i don't know to this day. I'm so baffled by. I wish i could ask them that question But i did see him. You know in the The ozone before he passed away and It was a couple of days before You know he did thank me. He says thanks a million for come and see me jamesy in you know said. Hey paul said i knew it was. It was the last time. I was gonna see mustard. Hey man i'll see you on the other side man said thanks everything for you. Don't for me in a you know give. These nurses health their paycheck. You're in here for free. Do what you gotta do. Yep and So that the last time the song but that story stuck with me man and he he's been around the world and He had this african statue From africa was like this little wooden statue in with try to sleep at his house. One night in that statue. He told me stories about that thing like it was possessing curse. I don't know who ended up with possession of that thing but it was a wooden carved one piece wouldn't carve statue of like this african goddess and man. I woke up in the middle of the night throwing up and sick as a dog. And i was fine when i got there and i had to leave. Ed lee was like two in the morning. My dad had come get me picked me up and bring me home and there was something revolved around us that you. I don't know what it was. It was weird that that is weird. Those kind of things creeping me out anyway. What can you tell us about the black black eyed kids in the possibility these being demonic. Well they say they're demonic in the essence of saying that let let's look at how demons operate to begin with. Okay eddie. They operate through nature. They can manifest themselves through people. They can manifest themselves through physical illness and they can be attributed to spiritual actual spiritual oppression and most of all they can manifest themselves through mental disorders. That's not saying that the black eyed children aren't demonic because there is something there that there are a lot of people that talk about the demonic entities. Being in these children. Lot of the people i talked about. I talked to said if when it never stops on the side of the road or children ever stopped you on the side of the road..
"angel" Discussed on Paranormal Analytical
"An angel to me. If i had to describe you an angel i would say it was more humanoid. You know scott things. You'll wings playing the trumpet as it flies around and looking after a person protecting them. Healing them Other people believe that. I've talked to that. They're these just powerful entity set. You know they can't be seen unless they allow you to see him. Some people believe that angels walk amongst us every day that are guardian angels. Never leave our side. But there's so many different variations to what an angel could be or what it is. I think more depends on the person and what they want that angel to be. I think that's it's the belief system within it which really makes the difference. Not so much as what is an angel. But what is an angel to you. i liked. That's very good. I i do like that. We'll in hebrew and greek eddie. An angel means messenger and as their belief is right now as far as her belief in angels. That's the kind of belief that she has as far as an angel being a messenger and it's kind of ironic. Because i had to go back and actually look at were. They always with us know are they. Are they with us today. Canal and those two separate questions right there through quite a curveball at me because looking at the first question where they always with us clear back at the time win the creation story was going on supposedly they were created before the earth and heavens so they've been around quite a while. Eddie you know right and the number and the number of them as far as the number of angels and everything is said to be in the millions now you get to this little guy named lucifer that went against his mom god so to speak. He fell from heaven and took a third of those angels with him and when they fell become what was called the demons and the dirk entities and the spirits and walk along this earth. I had to look into this eddie. Because it's quite a story. It is something that really it really grabs your attention because you start understanding exactly or partially for me the story in the essence of the difference between the dark and the light and how it's so closely comes together and actually personifies. What is paranormal. Well let's take a look at lucifer for instance. He went against god. Because of god's love towards humans because angels' per se were there. They've never been human there if you want to get technical with it. Their their own species their own race their own They're not they're not beings and because of that lucifer became jealous. When god cast out of heaven because right he he could not understand how something that was created by. God could be loved as much as god loved the human side. He put on earth and he felt betrayed and he turned and turned a lot of the angels against heaven which was at that time. was a big battle between the lucifer and his angels and Guide in his angels being led by. Saint michael archangel exactly right and they were cast out of heaven onto earth. Now that leads me to another point talking. About angels in messengers. Let's go back to the birth of jesus. When mary was going to give birth to jesus and she was approached by an angel that said that she would give birth to the son of god and more in to deter extraterrestrial aspect of what angels could possibly be and these are other thoughts and beliefs as far as wedding. Angels are what their thought to be in how they work. And it's a typical abduction story. If you think about it where you know. Mary was a virgin and could have possibly possibly been artificially inseminated to give birth to jesus who could have been a hybrid. There's so many aspects to the story and what it could be. What could happen a lot out there. And it's what you choose to believe of course but there is a lot to these stories you know so i think by looking at what are angels. Were demons if it is an extraterrestrial type aspect of the whole religious outlook. Some being good some being bad will in all actuality eddie. Mankind is the one who made the description of the angels to begin with because in that bible as they call it as a use it and everything there is never a description in the bible that says angels have wings not one not one place. Israel in the bible at it said angels have wings. Mankind is the one that put the angel's wings together and i think the ingles wings being put on them was something that mankind did to try. And i guess. Give a reason how in why they're able to fly or you know float or what have you and so they add a new wings more descriptive than anything else. Well in saying that. I totally agree with you because there are different kinds of angels. There's a category of angels. There's a chair them. And there's a staffroom. One of them is primarily. The cherban are primarily the garden of god. Sloan at a seraphim a tin god's throne an offer praises to him. That's two kind right there. Now you have the messenger. Type dislike the time you were talking about the come to mary and the kind come to a lot and everybody when the destruction of sodom and gomorrah come on and they helped him out the city the kind that come to sampson the kind that come to the walls of jericho when they were told to do what they were told to do. And those are the messengers and all of these angels and gods. under god's authority are in hierarchy dislike. You were talking about gabriel and and all the other angels said are up there there is a hierarchy of up here and all the way down the scale as to actually well. It's kind of like kind of like the military. You've got your generals exactly you got the president. You got your generals. You've got your enlist your your officers. You have your enlisted all the way down.

"Good evening. Everybody and welcome to paranormal analytical. On your host. Eddie hill along with the incredible and dead sexy. Rick warn james tubes may be on tonight. We're not real sure We did send out a message to him letting them know that the show is about to start so he may come on after a while Or he may still be tied up doing a other crazy studying that he's got going on on some different topics. Ooh yeah so. We don't know for sure if he's going to show up so We've got an interesting topic. That rick came up with tonight which deals with angels and demons so rick quantity start us off with what you want us to talk about. Eddie how he. How are you tonight my man. I heard you had a pretty busy day in. And you got drug through the past year and over the hills dales and things my god i was dealing with horses and introducing a new horse and that was fun Got drug all over the place and it was i you know. There's no way i. I was about to overpower this guy. But yeah he took me for a little ride. And i don't mean a right while i was sitting on them. I mean a ride. All hanging onto a lead as he dragged me across the yard and trying to get it the other horse so that was fun and interesting in a realized at that point in time that he was not he was not cut he was were in good shape and hanging there. I mean it was. So i asked my god i have taken. Some aleve and i'm sitting here is extremely sore and drinking a diet coke trying to recuperate. I guess you could say because. I feel like i've been rode hard. Put up with so. Yeah yeah hey sony. Doing my day was not as as fantastic as yours. It was eventful but not. Yeah yeah i. I'm pretty well. Out of the old west this indian has hung up his Bareback waste well. My bareback ways Led me through all kinds of interesting brush and shrubbery and That ten foot lead. I had was not long enough. I can tell you that long. Yeah but i was just trying to stay out of stay out of reach of his back legs and hooves and That was pretty much. All i can do and just kind of go skiing i come up. I come up with tonight's subject tonight Because we're in the middle well not in the middle. We are at the beginning of a very interesting case. And it has to be dealing with the person that is dealing with maybe a demonte kennedy or it may be We don't know what it is right now but it is. It may be just an oppression. We don't know but what got me on. This subject was the fact that this individual was very religious. I mean she's been in. She's eighty nine years old. Eddie wow and has been in religion for all of her life basically and as she talked an as. She told me about her experiences in the church she was talking about the angels and the demons about what they were taught and what angels meant her and want the dark side as far as anything like that meant to her. And it it really. It really hit home with me. Because i can see the sincerity in her heart. I could see sincerity in her eyes. Because she's having to deal with this and as we sit there and talked and everything. I thought too while this is so pertinent of an ideal and a topic in today's world because it says i picked up some information from dr robert jeffress and he's a phd scholar dealing and the theologian the questions and theology. And everything else like that. He says it's a tragic mistake to assume because something is not visible it is not real very true and that really hit me hard when i read that and it just really hit me because we are i mean he gives he is an analogy of like you know consider electricity. Okay it's invisible but stick your finger in the socket and you'll quickly discover the reality of electricity absolutely and so it is and so it is with the angels and demons. We live in a spiritual world. Eddie i know that our show. Paranormal electrical is is all about that. But i know that we get caught up sometimes in the semantics and the analytical part of what we're doing and everything and it really through curb ball at me eddie. When we started talking about her belief and some of her friends belief in angels and demons and i heard both sides. I'm hearing both sides next to be go over again and talk with her again. And do i'm gonna do some. Edp work and things like that. But you know. I got to studying about this and i thought what an interesting topic because maybe there's a lot of people out there that have had experience with angels and demons and the difference between the two is like night and day dark and light because they are all the first part that very similar yes you know what what is the demon but a fallen angel. That's exactly what i was gonna say. Lucifer is a fallen angel. It said that over seventy seven percent of american adults believe that angels' exist. I did not know that as far as being that high of a number that people actually believed in Angels and things like that and the experiences that they have with them or that they had with them or are having right now. There's a lot of belief just and believe me. I mean. I saw this. When i i went in for my triple bypass surgery eddie. When i was in the hospital i was at a place called saint francis hospital and there were a lot of people believing in the healing power and the messaging of angels that come to them in their sickness and in their time of need. I know that i'm native american. And we we have our own beliefs in the spirit world and things like that. We don't have a per se belief like everybody else does but it's similar. We believe in in spirits and everything. But we don't have the same ideals and the same tenacity of belief. If you wanna call it that are in some people call it indoctrination or dogma. But i saw this in this woman as she was sitting there talking to me about her beliefs and heard her experiences in churches and everything that she's went to with angels and demons and i guess the first thing we need to understand is what is an angel. Eddie well Angels could be something different for pretty much everybody depending on what. Your belief system is like.
