KHCB – Q & A – September 30, 2021

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

Questions

1 – (04:20) – Judas gave back the money.  Therefore, is there a reason to think that Judas might have been forgiven or saved?

2 – (08:33) – What kind of access did people have to God the Father in the Old Testament?

3 – (13:25) – Why did Jesus have to die for us?

4 – (15:58) – How does one get back to God and stop sinning?

5 – (18:25) – What do you think God’s demeanor is towards us?  Is He frowning?  What do you think that He is feeling in Heaven?

6 – (19:55) – On Galatians 3:16 – I think you touched on it earlier when you was talking about Abraham’s seed.  I always thought the seed, the promise was made to Jacob, the twelve tribes. I don’t think that include Esau and everybody else, only Jacob – the twelve tribes.  Caller wants more explanation on Galatians 3:16.

7 – (24:12) – My questions deals with the fact, as I move around my community, I come in contact with people who are officially “teachers” who teach things that do not seem to correspond with scripture.  Should I try to correct them or just pray for them?

8 – (27:05) – I know this girl I graduated high school with.  She married her same-sex and she’s a follower of Jesus Christ, a believer saved and everything.  She says she’s got everything right with Christ and He says it’s OK.  I’m not the judge, only God is.  Is she going to go to Hell or is she going to Heaven?

9 – (34:40) – Yes, couple of questions from two scriptures in Hebrews 11:16 – my question on that verse is why would God be ashamed to be called “my God”?  My next question revolves around the word “shame”.  Hebrews 2:11 – it says Jesus will not be ashamed to call us brothers.  Why would Jesus be ashamed to call a believer, like me, why would he be ashamed to call me His brother?

10 – (38:12) – In Revelation chapter 6:9-11 “ When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. 10 They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” 11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.”  The caller goes on to talk about the number of Saints who had already been martyred and those that will be martyred in the Tribulation.  He asks what is the “full number” of Saints that will be martyred and who they are.

11 – (43:00) – Concerning Matthew 7:21-23 ““Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”.  My question is – the Bible says that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. So, who is Jesus referring to, these people who did these things in the name of Jesus?  Are they believers?

12 – (48:14) – My question is based on when the children of Israel were at the Red Sea and getting ready to cross.  That’s when Pharaoh’s army showed up.  “We felt the oppressing hand of Pharaoh and his chariots pressing our backs to the sea.  But God told His children “Fear not! Today, you will see the salvation of the Lord, but Pharaoh and his army you will see no more”.  Actually, who spoke that?  That was the Words of God for sure, but was that Moses who delivered that message and where in the Bible is that please?

13 – (50:14) – With regards to Ezekiel 33 – and there are two verses in particular.  Understanding the narrative of the last days and understanding the Covid scenario, verse 8 is reading ““Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood”.  And we have some objection of sorts from some entities with regards to what that verse says.  I’m also reading from verse 30 from the same 33rd chapter of Ezekiel ““As for you, son of man, your people are talking together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, saying to each other, ‘Come and hear the message that has come from the Lord.’”.   My question is in regards to the absence of sorts of this message being portrayed or relayed or promoted as much as I think it should be – especially in light of current circumstances.

14 – (55:30) – Would you please explain Psalm 91:1 “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”

15 – (56:41) – On Revelation 12:11 “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death”.  Who is the “they” referring to here?
