SERMONS #59 – Attack of the Seraphim (8/2/23)

29:41 – Were the “fiery flying serpents” with six wings who attacked the Israelites angels or jet planes? How did a snake on a pole heal the victims of these attacks? Why did the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association and numerous other medical groups adopt this symbol as their own? What’s the difference between the Rod of Asclepius and the Caduceus? Why did Balaam’s ass see the angel (malach) in the middle of the road while Balaam did not? Who or what made the ass speak? Dave in Kentucky speaks from a similar source as he suggests answers to these and other questions.
