KHCB – Q & A – November 17, 2022
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked:
1 – (04:41) – As we kick off the program this evening, we want to start with an email that came in and this is what this questioner has to say. Pastor, if the wheat and tares in Matthew 13 represent true and false Christians, how are they both separated at the same time in the harvest? Wouldn’t the true Christians already be raptured? I heard a pastor use this to prove the Rapture and Second Coming are at the same time.
2 – (10:34) – Yeah. Hello, Dr. Woods. Dr. McGowan, How are you? I’m going to get ahead of Dr. Woods’ study on Acts here a little bit. With an Acts 16:16 to 18 question. Why was Paul so annoyed with the evil spirit saying that these men are bond servants of the most high are proclaiming to you the way of salvation? Was he annoyed because there was the girl was the evil spirit or like she was saying the right thing even though. It was an evil spirit. I guess so. I guess that’s my question.
3 – (13:48) – Hi. Good evening, Pastor Jim and Pastor Andy Woods. I hope you guys are doing okay. I have a quick question. I’ve been watching videos from Andy Woods that have been very blessed, very blessed to watch the videos of Bethany. In a way, to me, I just I have a question in terms of eternal security. If I’m on Titus 1:16, I’m reading from NASB. It says “they profess to know God or by their deeds, they deny him being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed”. So I guess my question is, can that professing Christian, I guess in a way, if they are a professing Christian and they become carnal in a way and have bad deeds, can they deny God? I guess in a way, are they not, or in other words, lose their salvation because they’re denying God by their bad deeds? I’m not sure. My question is the question.
4 – (19:05) – Bless your heart, gentlemen. I saw this picture and it was real pretty and it was people greeting their loved ones in heaven. And I heard a pastor say that this was not the truth. I was wondering, will I be able to recognize and hold my loved ones when I get to heaven?
5 – (22:07) – When Paul said “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”, will we be asleep the whole time until the second coming of Christ?
6 – (24:42) – Pastor, while we’re waiting for our next caller, let me go back to our mailbox. We have a question coming from Second Thessalonians 2:3. And the question is, “will the ones committing apostasy be the children of God or the Church of Christ”?
7 – (28:19) – Hello. My question comes from the book of John from the Bread of Life. Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless the father who sent me draws him and I will raise him up at the last day”. And later on he said, “This is why I told you no one can come to me unless the father who sent me enables him”. What does he mean by that?
8 – (35:49) – I was just listening to the caller that there was an explanation about the dead in Christ will rise and the Rapture. And so I was wondering if I could get one of you to give just a very simple explanation of what exactly does happen to the Christian when they die. And in other words, if it’s before the Rapture, I just don’t understand how the dead in Christ would be resurrected if they died before the Rapture. Are they not in heaven already? And what happens to us when we pass away? If it’s before the Rapture? And then the other thing, one other thing is. Well, actually, two, The caller was asking if we would recognize our loved ones and will we look like we do when we died? Will we go back to our look when we were 18 or (laughing). And then also, is there a basis in the Bible for our pets coming with us? And so that’s a whole lot to answer. I’m sorry, but I just do not understand the timeline of what happens when we die, where we go.
9 – (42:45) – Um, so I’ve. I’ve got a question. Um, then perhaps you could, you know, I’m really looking for some advice for others. We just recently got a new pastor. He’s been at our church for about six months. Really great guy. I really love him. Really dynamic preacher. However, he has a tendency to use YouTube clips in his messages to make a certain point and whatnot. Sometimes they’re really moving messages from other preachers and whatnot. But he likewise tends to show clips from secular movies and quotes from secular artists and rappers and whatnot. And it’s unsettled my family and myself. Right? And we’re just wondering what would be maybe a prudent way to discuss this with a brother without….maybe we don’t want him to jump to conclusions. And have him think that we don’t…we’re not really feeling them, if you will. We’re not liking them. But the fact that he’s bringing, if you will just Hollywood, I mean, there’s just….it just really unsettles us just showing movie clips from certain movies from YouTube in the service during his message. How should we maybe move forward with that?
10 – (47:52) – Yeah, I got a question regarding King Hezekiah’s healing, referring to a 2nd Kings 20th chapter, 7th verse. Where Isaiah goes and tells King Hezekiah to take a lump of figs roots and apply to the wound. So I’m just wondering why did Isaiah say that and what’s the purpose of that lump of figs. Plus did the lump of figs heal the wounds?
11 – (51:35) – Yes, I was calling in reference to the lady talking about would she see her dog in heaven. Does those animals have a soul?
12 – (53:10) – Yes, it’s coming from Hebrews 12:2. It says, Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who, for the joy – the focus of the question is who for the joy that was set before him. And of course, the verse above, it ties us into looking unto Jesus who for the joy. My question is this….Jesus was God. Jesus had everything before he was incarnated. He there was nothing left for him to have. What in the world was the joy that caused him to endure the cross? Or he was God. He already had the whole universe. What was the joy that caused him to do what he did? That’s my question.
13 – (56:30) – Yes, I have a question from the Bible. Is Jesus come before the tribulation or after the tribulation? I’m a born-again believer. I’m also a Minister. And my fiancée, she’s a Christian. So is my sister, my brother, they believe. But my supervisor…they’re looking for the Antichrist. She’s interested in her gay marriage. They’re going to get married.
14 – (58:35) – Thank you for taking my call. I believe this is from the book of John – Jesus is talking to the disciples. He asked, I wanted my question is, what does it mean when he said the man who loves his life will lose it, but the one who hates it in this world will keep it for eternal life?
