KHCB – Q & A – May 28, 2020
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :
1 – (04:44) – In the Gospels, sometimes Jesus mentions the Kingdom of Heaven and other times, the Kingdom of God. Is there a difference between the two?
2 – (09:05) – The caller has a niece that grew up in the church but now that she is grown, her niece has married a woman and wants to know what the Bible has to say about that. Specifically, in regard to on the assumption that her niece was a Christian as a child, how does the Bible respond to her now being married to a woman?
3 – (15:20) – I’m concerned about my Grandfather, all throughout his life, he was a very difficult man to live with. He loves his family very much – completely devoted to his family, but even a as boy, his siblings were afraid of him. He was turbulent and emotionally abusive to his family. He eventually died of dementia several years ago and towards the end of his life, the last few months he was seeking out forgiveness – particularly from his children. My Aunt did not give him the forgiveness he was seeking. I am wondering – is it possible that Jesus could get to someone when it is not physically possible for that person to be witnessed to? With a deteriorating mind, is it possible for him to accept the gift of Salvation?
4 – (22:10) – Regarding the Great Tribulation, I have heard that this is about Jacob’s Trouble and not about the Church. However, I have heard that the Church is present because we need to be there to witness and when it talks about Tribulation Saints, that is us because we are in the Tribulation. I wanted to know your thoughts on that.
5 – (32:25) – The listener wants to know about Acts 16:3 where Paul wanted Timothy to travel with him, but all the Jews living in the area knew his father was a Greek, so Paul circumcised Timothy to please the Jews. There are two questions – 1) Since circumcision of the flesh went against the beliefs of “The Way”, why would Paul need to please the Jews? 2) Is there a principle here which Christians today should be practicing when we evangelize or interact with non-believers?
6 – (36:23) – In the Old Testament, about every 2,000 years, there is somewhat of a change in Biblical history. This is 2020, and if Christ died when He was 33 years old, that means that we are about 10-13 years from that date of His crucifixion. What insight do you fellas have as far as what may happen next?
7 – (40:50) – Rev 19:9 – “Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”” I’m asking a hypothetical question here, let’s say that I’m saved and you’re saved, but you get invited to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb. I know where you are, but where am I?
8 – (43:50) – I have been reading Dr. Barnhouse is talking the apparent gap of time – maybe millennials – between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. And that during that time gap is when Satan fell from Heaven which also explains his presence in the Garden of Eden. Can you elaborate on that?
9 – (48:22) – I have a question about Angels – it says in the Book of Daniel that Michael was prevented from getting back to Daniel for about 3 weeks or so because he was held by or in battle with another powerful being. I was wondering when they battle, do they die? Or do they get wounded and then heal? Are angels eternal?
10 – (51:44) – I was wondering how the Bible instructs us if we are not getting fed Sunday morning.
11 – (54:00) – In the book of Amos 7:7, “So He showed me, and behold, the Lord was standing by a vertical wall with a plumb line in His hand.”. What is a plumb line?
12 – (56:53) – This listener wants to know about the Olivet Discourse in Luke 21 – they have been consulting a few different commentaries or outlines about the passage and are concerned about the fact that these outlines do not seem to agree. How would you outline Luke 21:5-24 specifically in relation to what the events are being spoken of.
