KHCB – Q & A – September 24, 2020

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

Questions:

1 – (04:00) – Do you think that words “this generation” in Matt 24:34 are referring to National Israel in the Tribulation?  And if so, or not, please explain your view.  Matt 24:34 says “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.”

2 – (09:46) – I’ve been reading the Bible in one year and just finished Jeremiah. I was wondering why Jeremiah refers to God as “The Lord of Heaven’s Armies” throughout the Book of Jeremiah.

3 – (13:18) – Revelation 19 refers to Christ coming back a white horse with the Army of Heaven following. Is that a literal figure of speech of that horse?  Second question is : Are there two raptures in 1st and 2nd Thessalonians?  Are they talking about the same Rapture or are there two Raptures?

4 – (18:46) – A friend of mine died of cancer and I prayer and prayed for healing and it did not happen and he died anyway.  Where is the power of prayer? And how will I ever know if the power of prayer really works?

5 – (24:20) – I called last week and the brother who took my call didn’t understand what I was asking about.  I wasn’t concerned about Salvation, I was concerned about Eternal Life.  Everlasting Life seems like it’s a condition.  And the condition is believing in Jesus.  And if a person stops believing in Jesus after they have begun the walk, but they fell away because of persecution.  Is there a difference between Salvation and Everlasting Life?

6 – (33:15) – The caller wants to know if the true believer should observe and celebrate Halloween?

7 – (36:55) – I want to know, in the Bible it mentions “the order of Melchizedek”.  I just wanted to know who Melchizedek was?

8 – (40:36) – My question is based on John 1 I believe where he says “Behold the Lamb of God”.  John the Baptist is telling his disciples “behold the Lamb of God”.  And then in Revelation, John who wrote Revelation, was talking in Chapter 5, he was weeping about nobody being able to open the book that was in the right hand of God.  And all of a sudden he saw the Lamb of God.  The Lamb of God that he saw in Revelation 5 looks different, I think, than the Lamb of God he saw when John the Baptist introduced the Lamb of God.  So, what is the difference there?  My second question is, what in the world was he weeping about in Revelation 5:5?

9 – (47:07) – When Nicodemus and Philip spoke of a man being born again, and then the Bible says “if a man be in Christ, he is a new creature.  Old things are passed away and all things become new”.  So now, if we are seated in Christ, do we become a Jew as Jesus is a Jew?

10 – (50:30) – When Christ was in the world 2000 years ago, did He ever mention about the Universe to the people who were with Him?  In other words, did He ever tell them exactly what He did?  Because we know that it was written in the Bible, did He ever mention what exactly He did on the 2nd Day and the 3rd Day and more likely on the 4th Day when He created the stars?  Is everything done regarding with Lucifer?  In other words, he’s doomed for what he has done?

11 – (57:00) – The Dispensations are how God deals with man in the 7 different ages, like innocence, law and grace.  Each is a different economy, how do the dispensations relate to the scripture that says “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever”?
