KHCB – Q & A – September 23, 2021

The transcript contains the Questions received – parenthesis indicate where in the broadcast the question is asked :

Questions

1 – (04:05) – In Matt 27:3-4, since Judas was filled with remorse, and he tried to return the 30 pieces of silver to the Chief Priest and the elders, was this act sufficient to grant him forgiveness?  And is it possible that Judas was saved when he committed suicide?

2 – (10:33) – I have two scripture references, one is Revelation 13:18 and the other one is 2 Chron 9:13….was there some kind of strange parallel between these two verses?  Is God saying something about the number of the beast and the amount of talents of gold that Solomon received yearly?  That’s the only cross-reference that I have ever seen for the number 666.

3 – (14:38) – In Acts 13:23 “From this man’s descendants God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus, as he promised.”, and the Bible says that God cannot lie and He is faithful and He is true.  Who is the man, and what is the promise, who was the promise to, and how did He raise Jesus?

4 – (17:45) – We see there are signs that religion is becoming more ecumenical in the world we see.  I’m wondering what scriptural evidence we have that the religion of the end times will be this ecumenical One-World Religion?

5 – (22:33) – My question is related to Deuteronomy 19.  I need a little more clarification on the three cities of refuge.  Just on the surface, it seems there is no retribution for someone who commits involuntary manslaughter vs. someone who kills with intent.

6 – (34:34) – In Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”.  I think of this passage when I think of my ex-husband who sadly passed away by suicide. I’ll just make a long story short.  I have a child with this person who is young.  I tell my son that he went to Heaven.  But I do not know that he lived a Christian life. I say this, but I don’t know.  Is that wrong?

7 – (39:11) – I have two questions.  One is about John 14:12 “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”  Like we are going to have His power.  My second question is what can we do with fright.  Where we have no more fear.

8 – (45:15) – My question comes from Hebrews 2:-6 “but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son;  today I have become your Father?” Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son?” And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.””    For each of the references to “Son” in verses 2-6, are those references to the 1st Begotten Son who is mentioned specifically in verse 6?

9 – (48:50) – I have been wondering how Jesus died for the whole world? How do unbelievers benefit from the death of Jesus Christ?

10 – (51:27) – There is a caller with a question on Hebrews 10:26-39.  She said at one point she was saved and then left and did her own thing (I think it refers to sinning willfully) and now she has come back and is wondering if she had lost her salvation.

11 – (55:55) – In Acts 4:31, how is it that we can be bold?

12 – (57:45) – The children of Israel asked God for a king and He sent them one, it was a bad one.  Where in the Bible is this?  And was there any other time that this was done?
