KHCB – Q & A – February 17, 2022

The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :


1 – (02:35) – Can you please speak on Revelation on 2:17?

2 – (06:32) – Regarding the terminology of “Pastor”, the individual is asking about the use of “Pastor”.  Some people are talking about “Pastor of Missions” and “Pastor of Music”, so they would like some clarification on what the “Pastor” means.

3 – (10:48) – Does scripture provide us a way to be certain that God is speaking to us?  In other words, that we are not listening to the enemy or our own pride?  And then, how may one participate in a conversation with God?   And they ask how Paul could be a Jew and at the same time a Roman citizen?

4 – (15:45) – Coming from Romans 7:6 to start with and then back up to verse 4 – verse 6 says “But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.”   And verse 4 says “Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.” My understanding is that the law represents our 1st husband.  Since us Christians have been married to Jesus Christ, if we go back to our old husband and start trying to keep the law, are we committing “spiritual adultery”?

5 – (19:15) – Concerning Romans 9:22 where it talks about God creating vessels of wrath prepared for destruction.  I would like to hear Andy’s interpretation of that verse.  A lot of people interpret that God has predestined some people to Hell and some people to Heaven.

6 – (23:13) – The question of “predestination” has come up several times among friends of mine where we have heard people say that they appeared to be in the Lamb’s Book of Life before they even heard the name Jesus Christ.  That could be a form of blasphemy if you’re not in agreement with predestination because there are plenty of verses such as the one where Christ said “I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father but by me”.  So if we have people out there claiming to be in the Lamb’s Book of Life before they were born, how do they justify saying something like that?  And, is this a form of blasphemy?  Where does the truth lie in predestination?

7 – (27:15) – Dr. Woods, let me ask you, because I taught this for many years and if I was wrong then I need to admit that.  I always taught, because I was taught, and I believe that everybody that was born, their name was in the Lamb’s Book of Life – everybody. Now what happened is that if you die prior to accepting Jesus, your name could be taken out of the Lamb’s Book of Life.  Because if you don’t interpret it like that what you’re saying is that you can lose your Salvation.

8 – (35:33) – I’m a real strong dispensationalist and when you understand the dispensations the way they are in the Bible, I see so many times we take the Bible and we cross dispensations over.  For example, the wedding feast of Cana of Galilee. It was more about a dispensation than it was anything.  Because what He was doing, was coming from Law to Grace.  And I understand that because under the law, the water was turned into blood.  Under the new dispensation under grace, the water was turned to wine.  It’s almost like these are things that are very, very simple and I’m just wondering how are we missing it?

9 – (39:36) – Is every Christian a missionary?  If so, what do you call someone who surrenders to move abroad and works cross-culturally?

10 – (40:54) – I know that a lot of people are talking about the Second Coming and it’s really close.  But I have been reading and Israel is [unintelligible] in the Second Coming. So, what my question is, I’ve been trying to understand about the Seven Churches.  Can you talk about that?

11 – (45:23) – I’d like to get an answer on Matthew 25:41b – concerning the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels, did God prepare the Hell when He created the world? Or did He create it later on?

12 – (48:15) – When a saved person dies, does the spirit go directly to God?  Then at the time of resurrection to be judged, does the spirit return to the body?  Could you please clarify the sequence of these events?

13 – (51:15) – What made people crucify Jesus after they had seen all the miracles that He did and everything that He did was from God?  And the people saw it with their eyes and yet they crucified Him.  Was it ignorance of the people or was it just not faith?  What was it that they did such a horrible death or was it just foretold that that’s how he was to be crucified?  Can you please explain that?

14 – (55:19) – I ran into a guy the other day who believed that not many people would go to Heaven.  And it was in direct – diametrically opposed to my concept of grace – the comprehensive nature of grace, the freedom of grace.  And then you take 1 Timothy 2:4 which talks about God wanting all to be saved and come to the knowledge of truth.  And then you take the mustard seed of faith that it takes in Matthew 17:20.  What do you make of Matthew 7:13-14 where it talks about the wide gate and the narrow gate where that is the argument for few people going to Heaven?
