KHCB – Q & A – September 03, 2020
The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :
1 – (06:05) – The caller asks if Job’s wife who cursed God and also told Job to curse God and die, the same wife that gave Job a second family?
2 – (07:50) – I am a grandmother and my granddaughter lives with me, she’s a college student. And she takes Ethnics class. Whenever she has a question about life or when we discuss abortion or the homosexual lifestyle, she thinks more in line with ethnics studies. I try to direct her to the Bible, but she doesn’t think the Bible has answers to all of life’s questions. So what scriptures, or how do I handle that because I want her to believe more in the Bible?
3 – (16:35) – I need some clarification on something please. I was a part of a prayer group recently. There was a young lady who requested prayer because she wanted to meet her guardian angel. I found that very disturbing. Can you elaborate on angels and guardian angels?
4 – (22:56) – Dr. Woods, I am studying Genesis with you and have put a lot of thought into Chapter 1:1-2. I am not sure that I can reconcile the difference between 1 and 2 if something happened between there. One day, I was reading in John 3 where Jesus was explaining to Nicodemus that “you must be born again by the water and the spirit to enter the Kingdom of God”. Then, I was thinking back to Genesis 1:2 and right there was the Spirit of God hovering over the waters. Is there any spiritual connection that you can explain for the Spirit in the water and what Jesus said to Nicodemus?
5 – (26:20) – Genesis 6:1 and Matt 18 reminds us that we all sin and fall short of the Glory of God. Therefore, if a brother sins against us, we should lovingly bring it to his attention. How often do we give him another opportunity to disappoint us again?
6 – (32:20) – Genesis 3:23 says God prevented Adam from eating from the Tree of Life after the fall lest he live forever in sin. Some “old earthers” use that as a way around Adam not being created as immortal. Please comment on that.
7 – (36:20) – I am going thru some things in my marriage. I came across Proverbs 18:22 “He who finds a wife finds a good thing,” and also Mark 10:9 “Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” So I hear a lot of people say that God puts marriages together and this scripture says that “He who finds a wife…”. So, is it that God is putting us together or is it that we are finding them and that’s why there’s divorce and marital problems and things like that?
8 – (42:55) – I had a question from Ezekiel 40:38-43, it speaks of the new Temple. It describes the room where the sacrifices are offered. Is this referring to a future time after Christ returns? Or was this prior to the coming of Christ? The reason that I’m asking the question is, I understood there would be no more sacrifices after Christ returned.
9 – (48:38) – I’m calling about Hebrews 7:28 “For the law makes men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, makes the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.” Question is, the word of oath which was since the law, when was that oath made after the law was given by Moses?
10 – (51:30) – “My question is, Jesus died on the Jew’s Preparation Day which was Wednesday at the 9th hour. They only had 3 hours to get Him off the cross and into the heart of the Earth. And that would have been 6pm which, according to the beginning of the Bible, it said the Night comes before the Day. So, that would have been a Thursday at 6PM. And then, the next day at 6am, that makes a day at 6pm that evening on Thursday meaning we have a night and a day on Thursday. But at the beginning of Thursday, that was Friday night…..” For the sake of time, Bruce interjects here and asked “Are you asking how 3 days and 3 nights factor in here?”.
11 – (55:48) – In the book of Genesis 4:13-14 “13 And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.” Who is out there to slay him if there are only 3 people (Adam, Eve and Cain)? And then in Genesis 4:17 “And Cain knew his wife”. Where did the wife come from if there was only 3 people around?
