I can't recive any offline message from Gmail chat. I need to get them.
I set up pidgin and empathy whith my Gmail account, but they only receive messages when I am online.
What do I do?

This is broken on the side of Google. See this discussion, we are not alone:
You have to go to gmail to see unread offline messages. They call this an improvement.
How can you receive messages when you are not online?
Maybe you intended in Invisible mode?
Since the introduction of Hangouts instead of GMail chat there is no more the status of Invisible.
If you are offline the messages your contacts send to you will be dispatched when you connect to the service.
