KHCB – Q & A – March 24, 2022
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :
1 – (03:35) – Some members of our Bible study group believe that Ezekiel 38:1-6 is a prophetic statement predicting the current war between Ukraine and Russia. Is this a fact? Please share your thoughts on this.
2 – (08:08) – My uncle just passed away 3 weeks ago and we prayed for him on his deathbed. We asked him if he wanted to accept Jesus Christ into his heart. He did by bowing his head as a sign that he was praying this prayer. Now I heard other people saying that he’s not saved because he needed a baptism – a water baptism. Can you identify at what point a person is saved?
3 – (11:22) – I was saved about 7 years ago and the first bit of the season of my salvation was amazing. I was like a little sponge. I would spend my lunch breaks listening to preaching. I would be in the Word all day and I absorbed so much Word and I loved it. And I have retained….I’m such a mature Christian because of it. But in the last few years, I just find myself not having the same appetite or the Word not having the same depth. I used to read the Bible in one year, but now it just doesn’t….I don’t feel like…I almost feel ashamed to say that I don’t think that I’m finding anything new, because I know the Word of God cannot be exhausted. But, I just want to know like what happens when you come out of that bungee phase – when you’re first saved and you first get to know Christ and you’re now maturing. How do you maintain that same…how do you keep getting deeper and deeper into the Word?
4 – (16:12) – Good evening, my question is about Daniel. It’s Daniel 9:12 – and I’m trying to be more specific as to what is the great evil spoken of in verse 12? 12 “And He has confirmed His words, which He spoke against us and against our judges who judged us, by bringing upon us a great disaster; for under the whole heaven such has never been done as what has been done to Jerusalem.” So, could you be specific as to what is the great evil that has been done? It seemed like to me they say there is nothing under Heaven that had been done is greater than what it was done upon Jerusalem. So could you explain the great evil? And it was done to the Israelites. So what has happened to the Israelites – to have the great evil that has not been done upon no other place but Jerusalem?
5 – (19:45) – My question is about Jesus Christ. Is Jesus Christ the only man – king of the earth, king of the earth, king of the world – is He the only man that can kill you with His breath? And another question is – what is the meaning of the Lord’s body when you take communion?
6 – (25:33) – I know that the intent is good, but I wonder – is there Biblical support for telling survivors that their deceased member is in a better place since we have no way to know who is and who is not saved?
7 – (34:22) – Hello, I was calling with a main question and another question that was coinciding with that one. But I just was curious. I’m a Christian and has been [unintelligible] by. But I was raised in Bible-believing churches and everything and my kind of general understanding of when the Rapture happens that young children and babies would be raptured as well at that time kind of almost like a child who’s under the age of, we like to say, accountability that doesn’t really have a full understanding of who God it is and not and what Jesus has done for them. And I just was wondering your thoughts on that. And then kind of going along with that too for Matthew 24:19, I was just curious if that verse talks about just said it’s going to be a really difficult time during that time for moms that would be pregnant or would have young children, or if that’s referring it all to children and leaving Earth at that time and maybe unsaved parents being left behind.
8 – (42:20) – I have a question about Deuteronomy 28 and you can start with [verse] 46 where is says “and these curses will be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder and upon thy seed forever”. So all of these curses are mentioned in Deuteronomy 28. Can you explain to me today – which one of these curses are still on Israel today? Because it says in 46 they would be on Israel forever.
9 – (44:35) – Hi, can you explain the Galatians 1:8 in regards to anyone who preaches a another gospel is accursed – has God forever damned – and if it is, those false teachers, can they ever repent ?
10 – (47:47) – Many Christians use the cliché that says “love the sinner, but hate the sin”. Is this saying found in the Bible? We hear this everywhere in church from people, but there are so many scriptures that reference God’s hate towards sin and also his love towards those who repent of their sins. What about someone who believes in God has been saved, but continues to live their lives in sin. Are they really saved? So, there’s maybe more than one question here. For instance, people who live together who are not married or homosexuals, etc., but state that they’re saved. This question was part of a church service I attended last week, but it seemed like it just bounced all over the place with the outcome of God loving everyone including sinners.
11 – (54:46) – My question is – you know the Bible says that God hates divorce and nowadays people just divorce – [unintelligible] like the things that people can do to get divorced. Things you need to do for someone to have legal grounds for divorce. But my question is, if someone is what outside those legal grounds and they go and marry somebody else, are they really committing adultery?
12 – (57:20) – I have two questions – first is in Matthew chapter 22. I don’t exactly know the verse it is, but is says to love with all your heart and with all your soul. The part that I want to know is, what it does that mean when it says to love the Lord with all your heart? Also, the other question is in Ephesians 2 verse 6 or 7 where it says that we are risen together with Christ and we’re sitting with him in Heavenly places. What does that part mean sitting with Christ in Heavenly places if we are here in Earth and Christ is over there at the right hand of God?
