KHCB – Q & A – November 18, 2021
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :
1 – (04:44) – II Thessalonians 2:2 seems to suggest that the church was being persuaded to accept false doctrine in a letter they believe was written by Paul. Can you please discuss that?
2 – (10:05) – Is a Biblical principle involved in my decision to obey or disobey the order to be vaccinated, tested or fired?
3 – (13:30) – The Thanksgiving holiday is coming up soon and I know someone who doesn’t have any family, all their family is gone. They belong to a church but sometimes they get a little discouraged, and they are not married either, and so they feel a little discouraged cause they wonder why God would leave them without any family. They have prayed many times for God to send them a husband. What words of encouragement can I give them? Is there anyone in the Bible like that where they didn’t have any family?
4 – (18:15) – I was listening to a pastor/teacher of a large Southern California church and always found him to be doctrinally spot-on, as well as all the other sister affiliate churches and those pastor/teachers. I was listening to his Communion service when he made this statement, my jaw hit my chest and I quote “Your Salvation was actually achieved in the Garden of Gethsemane. Not at the cross or at the tomb”. Is this a new doctrine? I did a little bit of internet research after that and found out that (I believe it was) the Mormon Church buys into this. Please comment on this.
5 – (22:58) – I’m reading in the book of Revelation 11:8 – “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” Why do they say the Lord was crucified in Sodom and Egypt?
6 – (26:43) – I always believed in a “pre-trib” rapture because of Luke 21:36 “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” But I was wondering how do you reconcile where Paul writes in I Corinthians 15:52 talks about the “last trump” and the only thing that I can think of is Revelation 14 – the 7th trump would be the last trump – looks like there’s a harvest there as well?
7 – (34:43) – Out of Galatians 3:16-19, where it says “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ…”…skipping down to verse 19…..”19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.” My question is, this seed comes from Abraham, which is Christ. And “the people” is the Israelites. Is that seed in verse 16, which is Christ, the seed of Abraham?
8 – (39:33) – In Colossians 2:13-16 – especially verse 14 “having canceled that record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands.” What does that record of debt mean?
9 – (41:39) – Using only verses from the Tanakh, do you agree that these four clearly contextually show that the Bible is complete and that nothing should be added such as the Talmud? I need to use them with a Rabbinical person who won’t consider the New Testament. If you can suggest any other verses, please share them. And then they give the verses here Deut. 4:2, Deut. 12:32, Exodus 24:4 and Proverbs 30:6. So I think we are dealing with someone who might be a Jewish Christian.
10 – (45:49) – Where will we believers be while God is dissolving creation and replacing it with a new Heavens and new Earth? In the 3rd Heaven or the New Jerusalem?
11 – (47:35) – Revelation 11:8 – Could you tell me if I see it differently? In Deuteronomy 28:68, Moses tells the Children of Israel “the Lord will bring you into Egypt again with ships”. And when you go to Revelation 11:8, this is that Egypt that the Lord told Moses the Children of Israel will go back into. And the dead bodies is Judah and Israel of the great city which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt. And if you look at the United States today, it is spiritually Sodom and it is Egypt because of the slavery of 1619. And where our Lord was crucified, is His image at His teachings. Do you agree with that?
12 – (49:50) – In Genesis 6:4 where it talks about Nephilim, and I don’t know if they are angels or giants or Sons of God. Are they humans? Are they angels?
13 – (57:35) – The Bible in the Book of Revelation clearly states all who receive the Mark of the Beast will not be saved. Likewise, we learn in the Gospels, that Jesus has a love for children, with admonishment for those who harm them. Though our present vaccine is not the Mark of the Beast, children are being forced to receive it in certain locations of the World. Plus children are subjected to other decisions against their will. What, if anything, does the Bible teach pertaining to children who are forced to receive the Mark of the Beast during the Tribulation period?
