KHCB – Q & A – June 23, 2022
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked:
1 – (04:10) – Are there any living prophets for today?
2 – (06:20) – My question it coming from an experience I had a long time ago. And this is back at the tail end of the Jesus movement. I have fond memories of that. It was an exciting time in America because people were coming to the Lord and they were out there! It was a very wonderful. One of the speakers at Glorieta was very angry about a slogan, a very famous slogan that was going around Christians at that time. And the slogan was “Jesus is the answer”. And he said “I don’t care about that, I want to know what the question is”. So, my question is – Is Jesus the answer to ALL questions or do we have to have particular questions that Jesus can be the answer to?
3 – (09:20) – The Bible obviously contains a lot of foreshadowing. Is it reasonable to conclude the age of the Earth will reflect the six days of creation and the seventh day of rest where the age of the Earth might be 6,000 years and the Millennial Kingdom is that time of rest? And if so, might God work through the Gregorian calendar or the Lunar calendar?
4 – (12:20) – In Acts 11:17 Peter is recalling to the apostles and Brethren the conversion of Cornelius and his household. After describing how the Holy Spirit fell upon them (Cornelius and his household), he says Peter then says something puzzling in verse 17. And here’s what he has said – Peter says “Therefore his God gave to them the same gift as he gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was on that I could stand in God’s way?” So now, here’s the question – I thought Peter and the other Apostles believed long before Pentecost. But here he says they received the spirit when they believed. Is there a second believe needed at this time?
5 – (15:40) – Yes, I have a question in Luke, chapter 2, verse 11. “For unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” And in verse 26 is says “and it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ”. Is it ‘the Lord Christ’ or is it ‘the Lord’s Christ’?
6 – (18:40) – My question is in reference to prayer. When a Christian has a need for prayer, like for special needs, is it better to pray with other Christians? And also, is fasting helpful besides prayer?
7 – (22:33) – I have a question and this is regarding Salvation by Faith alone. And I understand that it is by Faith alone in all Dispensations. And I’m wondering how we reconcile this with (there’s two verses that I have that like seem to me that they might go against this), so I’m just wondering how this would be reconciled. And these would be in both in the Tribulation, so it’s Matthew 25:31-46, which is the sheep and goats judgment. And I understand that the Gentiles will be judged based on how they treat God’s people. So to me, that kind of seems like – if that’s how they’re going to be judged (whether they’re saved or not), is that not a work? And then, the other one (question) is the one for the Jews – and specifically Romans 10:13 where it says they will they have to confess with their mouths for salvation and they will call upon the name of the Lord. And are those also not works? I’m just wondering how that gets reconciled.
8 – (28:50) – I have a question from Revelation 13. It talks about the Antichrist. I have tattoos all over my body and stuff. And my fiancé is a Christian woman and she told me that if people gets tattoos on them, that they worship Satan. Is that true?
9 – (35:43) – How do I know what “work” I’m supposed to be doing? I mean, I understand that works don’t get you saved, but how do I know if I’m doing a work for Christ or if I’m just doing it because I feel guilty? What works are they talking about? What am I supposed to be doing I guess is my question?
10 – (38:36) – When you go into I Corinthians 10:31-32, it separates the Jews from the Gentiles versus the Church of God. Is it possible that when Paul wrote to Timothy and explained to him “a workman needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Is it possible because we have not been given and taught Dispensationalism, that that is the reason that we misinterpreted the passages?
11 – (42:00) – Based on the (subject of ) Dispensation of a couple of calls earlier, right before the coming of the Lord when Israel and those on earth have taken the Mark of the Beast and the Gentiles are there trying to encourage them in different ways. At that time it seemed like there’s another Rapture taking place when Matthew 13 describes the Kingdom of Heaven is like a net for gathering everything…keep the good, throw away the bad and planting seeds. There’s a passage at the end of that age when the Mark of the Beast is being taken and the Gentiles are there. It seems like when the Lord comes back, the angels are gathering in groups taking some and leaving some. Is there another Rapture at that point?
12 – (45:10) – I know Jesus Christ that he had all power in heaven and after he had been crucified and resurrected. But he didn’t have all power before he was crucified. Who did he receive power from, from God or from where?
13 – (47:20) – My question comes from John 1:14. Is truth exclusively and without exception a person named Jesus Christ?
14 – (49:05) – It’s not so much a question, it’s just a comment, maybe for PPOV. The recent news yesterday about the Google AI called Lamda. The engineer that is working on it said it was becoming sentient and I just think that maybe it ties into Revelation 13:15 where it says “and it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as did not worship the image would be killed”. So, I just thought maybe it would be an idea for the PPOV. Thank you.
15 – (51:09) – Dr. Woods, I have been saving this for you for the last 3 weeks. I have been confronted by friends who I knew that are believers, but the questions is how is it that we are the only ones going to Heaven when the Indians and the Chinese were here 3,000 years before Jesus came? And I am not sure that I gave them a proper response and I felt very bad. I need to be prepared for such questions in the future. How do you respond to that?
16 – (56:45) – My question is about children and the Rapture. After reading 1st Corinthians 7:14, does that imply that only children of Believers are going to get raptured? I know that there’s an age of accountability, but I just need a little bit of clarity on that.
