The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network mats like why is the founder and president of apologetics. We found online at: you have questions of our Bible doctrines maps what why branches called and responded to your questions at 877207276 here's Matt slick right will deliver one yesterday and appointment doctors appointment will be deal you get older and if you want to give a call. All you have to do is dial 877722765 wide open lines of October to give me a call. Love to hear from you if you're a newbie. This is a Christian call in show: coal generated show I answer try to answer biblical issues. Sometimes a little bit of counseling theological issues and stuff like that. So if it sounds something so did you think you want to check out please do and talk to you.

So let's see with Israel trip coming up next year. This clinician ever known, and karma. If you want to check it out. Karma and you can check it out. It was now five grand issue with everything secluded in the hotels and meals is really great been before. Want to go again. It's absolutely wonderful really recommend you go if you can, because it's just great to build Google places where Jesus wasn't to think Jesus saw lot of it so love it and again we have well if open lines 877-207-2276 watch on Facebook you can watch on.

Let's see the Karma homepage CAR room.award see me sitting here lecture my headset on. It's not that exciting.

So if you're really desperate for some, the do over if you can't sleep you just find do you watch me sleep. Let's see your picture you want and I am asking for prayer request for somebody to keep it vague but nested you would pray for little say this blind boy named John and with an eye infection due to some mistreatment in the country. Let's just say that and the so if you could pray it would be greatly appreciated.

God knows who and what the where rivers, healing, deliverance's ability to cope. John all right.

I think that's should be about it because we have two open lines now 877-207-2276. So why don't we just get on the phone with Vicki from Raleigh, North Carolina. Welcome your on their is nothing in the Bible so you can or can't so you get cremated if you want to think about what I was right and what if someone dies in and like the twin towers you know fire in the home and all burned up. I guess you guys think whoops you know I can't can't figure Don doesn't happen or people barely see.

So I did. Because of the fact what you breaking up breaking up want to hear we got likes of Esther is just a something to say you get this guy might be filing by you know God bless the pastors that we have, but sometimes I just say things that are not very pristine and theological understanding nothing the Bible says you can or cannot be cremated. We just die. God is able to resurrect the secret entire universe.

I think he knows how to resurrect us physically, people dying, fires, people dying floods. The other, buried in mud all kinds of ways of people die and God is able to work through it and think about that she could bury you die you in a coffin for 2000 years, which left so it is to save people to save that that way. Sorry, but you're just lacking in logical and theological understanding and summers that particular okay.

God bless. All right three open lines of want to give me a call 877072276 John from Florida John here Mike, I would question in regard right to eighth grade through eighth 11 like this typically verse 11 verse that you need for this training.

11 hours than I would want to admit you will know the Lord of our midnight everything you and am currently the capital and for me and sometimes I m versus 20 data.

What is Angel talking to the beginning of the chapter that an angel there that mean that's an angel, says verse three speaking with me is going out Angels coming out to meet and said to him, run, speak and have it flare like I can't picture for. I declares the Lord will be with you now. You said to him speak, for I declares the Lord.

Yes, I can see Weatherby linguistic confusion because there are cases in the Old Testament where the angel of the Lord will speak for God, and dinner some debate about that in the Lord is. But that's neither here or there there right now so I haven't done an analysis on on this particular thing the top of my head, for I declares with butts. It does say capital M in verse 11, for in my NASB what all do is do a comparison text comparison and go so different versions with this not right. 11 eight you know, sometimes operator error. All right here we go. It won't go.

That's really interesting.

I don't know why it's a goof on the system so well 292 11 scroll down. Sorry now I got it working for my people dwell in your lives in me. M in the NASB and ESV does not have a capitalized but I love it capitalizes personal pronouns were in me and him and things like that in the context of does or doesn't the King James doesn't do what's the new King James does and you will only ones that do yeah. So it is just what I just told it so it doesn't mean anything.

I don't know the title.

Top my head by looking at this really stop and not talk chest analysis is not practical. Right now, so it I wouldn't go to this first of the Trinity. Okay, this is not where I would go there are better verses for that, like the very last verse of second Corinthians. Okay to try that is an interesting verse. The very last verse of of phone. Second Corinthians and what it says is the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all and it's is there but the problem here is that the doctrine of the Trinity is not arrived at by a single verse is arrived at systematically the whole of Scripture right so somewhere to say that the Trinity doctrine is not true. Also, will you understand how it arrived at right. This would talk in private. You don't know how to write it so it's a systematically derived doctrines of you to understand the system you can't say it's true or false because the system is what has to be done in house. Arrived at his Bibles is only one God. Isaiah 43 4445 and the father-son Holy Spirit is called God the fathers of Holy Spirit each create faults in the Leesburg ECB could have a will and indwell etc. this house arrived there. I think your all right okay God bless. Okay, let's get to Jay early airline we lost would love to talk about that. Why is Biden allowed the president is because of the sin of our nation. That's right, Biden is not a godly man and a lot of the ungodly presidents we've had in the past few decades. Part and parcel of the apostasy and judgments of God of our church in the general got upon us in our country, our nation, so I got to say about that, but I won't. But if you're interested I just released an article couple days ago on the equality act and I would suggest if you're interested on the quality I go check it out see with the quality act is about to be better named the religious oppression act and forced morality act because it's is bad news and I did read the entire bill and would soon analyze them and release the bill also copied it from the site. Correct copy from my highlighted stuff this publican, things like that so they go for open lines of want to give me a call 877-207-2276. Let's get to Earl from Virginia early welcome earlier yet not what you feel you want to pick it up or do I want to be left behind in this one. On those verses you will be left behind. I want to be loved by yes because in the context is 2437 and following and Luke Luke 1726 and following right so with the once were taken of the wicked in both those context, to get to the place of destruction. So a lot of pastors have blatantly just met Kimberly to do it, but they say that's a rapture is represented as it absolutely is not.

It's the weekend with the taken it clear that he and they asked Jesus where they taken the answers look 17th is where the body is a vulture together to a place of judgment, the rapture occurs, but those are verses for the rapture. In Matthew Matthew earth verse by verse with looking to see how it work that right.

The key is Luke actually because it's just a Luke 1728.

They were eating, they were drinking they were buying. They were selling. They were planning, they were building for the day that Lot entered the sophomore stone destroyed them all. So the ones who were eating and drinking, and stand buying and selling, and planning and building with a once were destroyed and when you look at 24. It says they were eating and drinking their mentoring their giving an American didn't know in the dark and the flood came and took them all away.

Once you have taken of the wicked. The question is why, what's it say that and here's a this is a really serious question. Why is it that the basically passive or heard preached on this and got it wrong. That's a warning flag for several reasons. One, with some guy named slick figures it out it doesn't. Others affect to have figured this out to but the problem is that a majority of the pastors ever heard preach and teach on this. Over 40 years of studying the rapture and it is not.

If they can write what you get a break. Hold on folks for the line to go to give you a call 8777 mass Y call 77077. Here's Matt slick have three open lines want to be recall, 877-207-2276 was back to Earl Stiller here so that they are making a comment and then we ran out of time so if you want to continue going out government on not being left behind anything that is always bothered out the body like that when it doesn't are really great after your enthralled 30 and called you before and now if that bothered me about my congregation balanced meal that you know.

While no one lead him and wanted talk talk you about it don't hurt you go with or and I really connected with Matthew 13 your here's the thing. This is a big topic. Matthew 13 has the parable of the wheat and the tares know what I would suggest you do is to study this age and the age to come study on this nominal millennialist and if you're not, that's okay.

Then Carmen I have an article this to age theory but in support of a millennialism and has two ages there, but that's what I'm interested in you checking out because this is this age needs to come so Paul the apostle Jesus both divide times into this age needs to come which is eschatological, and no one ever talks about is another issue generally got into very much the reason I bring it up is because of of the week in the the tears that we, you and I agree, and I'm glad that you saw that it's good. So good on my 44 Luke 17 the wicked are the ones taken yeah So the week. The chairs and he says they said so we tear them up and verse 30. Allow both to grow together until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers first gather up the tares, and bind the bundles there but gather the wheat in my barn with the tares are the unbelievers and their the first was gathered and I read this while it brought. And so if you go down in the chapter 8 Jesus explains the parable he says the world is the field and the tares are the sons of the evil one enemy saw them as a devil in the harvest is the end of the age happens at the end of age. When you start study with the end of the ages, it gets real interesting and he said the reapers area. Just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, social be the end of the age so that means the end of the age, not seven years before it but at the end of the age. That's when the wicked are gathered that the question is if it's preach ablation rapture. Could it be that before the end of the age. The wicked are the ones to Connecticut assess out of God's kingdom.

But that's doesn't make sense because it actually sells is the kingdom of God.

Ron taken out the next verse, the Son of Man will send forth his angels will gather out of his kingdom all stumbling blocks, so the wicked are the ones were taken out of his kingdom and their the first was taken. Does that mean that this would not have an answer for it seems to imply that the kingdom of God is now that the rapture is going to occur, but it occurs after the wicked are taken at the end of the age because it's his kingdom that Iran and get rid of and I look at this and going as anybody else see this. I've got to be wrong while I decide to make it up. It's just like they don't know yeah when you really want to see something that's is a definite warning sign is a bad, bad. Yeah so so but I talk to others or certain agree against like that says so that makes because else yeah and begin the kingdom so that Google even though that ego begin the kingdom part of the kingdom here on earth you will remit that you might not be the ill, but what about heaven that we don't the kingdom here on earth.

This is part of the theological apostasy desk occurring in the Christian church yeah and yeah entice letter heresies of the Christian church's teaching that most churches teach yeah I'll talk to you in a minute but the hell out of the top six charts in one of those days the Christian church yeah got the, the issue of getting out of here, particularly here in America where we have everything in her fingertips and the issue of right of of these and persecution happens elsewhere but not here and preach ablation rapture. Of course, were not to be persecuted because looking to get out. Is this the same kind of mentality.

So why really worry about things that much that that control of an attitude is there I think is very harmful if your omelette is a lot I I believe it has been one normally ugly for the millennial reign of Christ. Now I got my reasons for agree that's okay. There, but I'm very evangelistic and I did a rocket rattle your right I believe were the kingdom of God now, and I believe that the sons of God judges us need to be doing and and taking this world for the kingdom of God and that if we don't do it. That's why the things you can get worse.

That's what I believe and churches preach and such eternity.

Churches see churches preaching, evangelism, or discipleship. I teach and you don't. I see them saying the seven steps to a better whatever it is it only a limit given illustration is an opening to the sermon is that of St. congregation. Open your Bibles to. Let's read the word now from what it is. Let's go work and were not were not coming back either were were not coming back.

I report I get us Lord the day you'll come back.

You will not are you you you ask of you. I look at the temples got a rebuild. It looks like it's gonna be a march out of the east of the unit into Israel to take a spoil. These things have been fulfilled yet. Got me up more. I think we got a couple three decades that I want to be part you are telling part of God's kingdom and it kingdom of God, whether were ready or not that's on the stucco wait'll me and I want to be part of it. They will. I believe when it now because you know if they say the millennial reign next things to be found. But Jesus said he was already bound in Matthew 1232 to plunder the strong man's house. Go to first bind him when he was casting out demons that we said or what I got out of stuff like this so I am very evangelistic because of what I believe to put my trust in the rapture and put my trust in anything from a trusted Jesus Christ and that's right. And whatever happens happens. Let's get trust got engulfed by right yet will agree with where we should be hated to be doing our date that met not doing it, though, when I go on it. The world screen in the dirt is not the world is always happy to bless God what do you know what I focused my 772077 mass Y call 770727 get on the with Anthony about this.

I can hear me yes. Good yeah call the other day and your call you back with the Bible about new American Standard Bible okay in John chapter 11 and the Bible you go up to the ion not going but not the right time so his disciples went out and later on he went up even though secretly now in the NASB, the new American Standard Bible quote membership rollback in the King James version is that the Lord I do not go up yet why UT and the new King James had yet been entered.

Just there, they poured yet in not there that I looked up and know at the bottom of my pilot that the end you chappie and you and you what the heck does not have the word yet at that point.

Okay now, according to King James only advocate the fact that the word yet is not there in the Bible what they think you're making Christ out to be a liar, yet is not in the great Philly ATP King James edited in a really will be not usually but looking at the interlinear and you know I'm by no go. Not full of so unto this so it's just I go not to this feast is that literally sign so that no yet in the original Greek correct.

Not even what they call the majority text hello I am. I just told him I can see right now the computer is not there. Okay yeah so you spend word yet not okay that sounds logical, Bible 30 people do it myself, but I am you can get, making my life and I like to switch to a Bible that lets you like your the 20% limit on the correct I'm looking at some lexical stuff okay.

It's hoop full and postal notch and whole notch and OIC Poe. And yet, not even yet not yet and in interrogative synonyms and antonyms so yeah not yet works until now.

It can also be similar.

So that's how it is not yet come in so it is Hoople excludable, so it is the word not yet that one earnings okay so let's find King James is fine in that area. Yeah.

So here's okay here's the thing about Greek and I had a few years of it and I'm rusty but I remember very clearly that you can get tenses and you get a chance of a verb next to another verb or another kind of the construction and it changes the meaning slightly and complicated. But nevertheless, in English, you know, I go Horse Creek I eat I ate, I will eat when we say I eat is not the exact same thing as I am eating both the present tense.

So we say I eat is not that descriptive but I am eating is still present tense, with little more descriptive. It's more like ongoing action will slip to say that I eat is at position one and 18 deposition five. As far as that verbal kind of a flow goes in intensity in Greek present tense is a product to when you say I eat there's a slight continuation action embedded in it as is, how it works that language which have it in English is fine. This after some other problems in other areas but this thinkest is so is happening here is he just not going of the feast at that moment is always. I got up to the fees because it has that English Pacific the Greek sense of action taken at that time in the process, so I don't go up so you can put the word yet and you're not a problem is I do not go up to this feast because our time is not yet fully come, and what he meant by that was it wasn't his time to die, so part of the explanation for this. He waited is that if he had gone up. There were circumstances, there that would have probably led to his death. Before the ordained time so we had to wait and then when whatever he knows about past he could then enter in. That's one of the comments are to read about that years ago. I do have an article on Connor and the answer is found in verse a distant look at Goodman.

He was ever to go, but he did so, the King James people.

They say that whatever you know. Like I said you the other day just pointed to Romans 518 13 James only Romans 518 and and why does the King James get it wrong and it does get flat-out wrong that that verse and wiki.

Also a car and look up the King James only section. We have also chalking chocolate all okay yeah I don't moving from the new King James because I've been told the manuscript that they thought or far, not in one or the one for any of your based on our older than the ones King James debate right that accurate right in the King James documents work around fifth or sixth century. I think in the NASB, based on one's earlier NTSB is to generally, the earlier the text the better. Generally, not always. Generally Saugus I go to the King James only section and I think that Luke did a good great job there and check some stuff out okay okay okay right back a lot. Okay, sounds good, but okay let's get the next question here. Let's get to Tim just him I didn't welcome on the are you doing all right you wrote the book the room by Michael or not.

Stay with Michael Heiser. Okay he he inserts paganism into his interpretations talk to accounts of the gods implies a plurality but at the say that there is a scam. Gnostic overtones reads in the text. I would distinguish from Teresa.

The divine counsel is exactly and what he's doing that what he does is use by Mormons to help them believe in many gods.

So this is say that I don't trust Michael Heiser is my opinion, I don't recommend okay okay what I'm about their service at Nicaragua run better for young children. What I do think that is child. Although not the big event was soon as I know I would start before the rebuilder to speak you know I don't love Jesus right away and not worry about I just started early. You know I and my wife did that children were Jesus and you know and we just that. Was it so you know I love them very much.

All right, this get a richer Milo lost Rick and working to get to someone special here after the break Glenn from Texas and I want you to hear what he has to say to Cynthia right now. Cynthia welcome on okay okay so love to you. I can hardly hear you. It sounds like you're not even there.

Okay okay okay now knocking.

Glenn tried again. There will be good.

Told her that Satan is already bound this understanding and driving yet. He said that in Matthew 12 2232 came break. I've already that's what he said let me see what you get back the break read the text will talk about okay all right hey folks, please hold on the right back after the mass Y call 770727.

Here's Matt everybody's Cynthia are you on every all right on the news regions in text okay you can hear all right now. This is after Jesus is casting out demons and the Pharisees says that he's doing it by the power of the devil by Beelzebub, so this is Matthew 1225 in return for muted one talk. I guess your dog in the background okay and so this is what it says this would Jesus is Matthew 1225 to 29, and knowing their thoughts, Jesus said to them, any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste from her in any city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand. If I by Beelzebub cast out demons is another name for Satan, by whom do your sons cast them out.

For this reason they will be your judges. But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you, or how can anyone enter into the strong man's house and carry off his property. Lessee first binds the strong man and then he will plunder his house. So that's what he's talking about.

There is talk about plundering the house that is is he's going in and casting out demons out of people's houses and the human is often said to be a house and weekly God that often but is is use this week. Now analogically you got to make new temples force new houses. It only mentions sports could talk about her body and so he saying that the that in order for him to cast out demons.

The first strongman. It has rebounded and he talked about bills both talk about Satan is to be bound. There you go.

That's Matthew 1229 okay there okay okay get okay okay all right okay I all right hey folks, you know, the text says so you know I don't really think a lot of people that's what it says, so go check it out.

Matthew 12 starting in verse 22.

Start reading you'll see it all right. Let's get to Glenn from Texas Eglin. Welcome is going. I'd ask how you're doing, but I know at right.

Yeah, folks, this is Glenn and I've known Glenn for years and he was one of the first responders of 9/11 and because of all the stuff he said yourself you're only right there with cancer, various problems, issues, and you just gotta significant diagnosis studentship. Yeah, I probably won't make it. Probably won't make it six months now and the new reprinting of people praying for you and pray for you and now you and I want you to call because your attitude about this was kind of joyous, not that it was but how you witness and everything effectively where this what's really interesting the folks that are having problem understanding my point of view are in the church and the folks that that really need. Here are gotta make it though unit files were called the got it done and heal and forgive great glory in many double hold any good thing from the walk upright when I read that I don't want my union with the warning young lady not going to get at all.

Probably 13 epic and she said she me while I am at and I can. I bet. What else, but I think any everybody loves like I want to be here for my children I want my light I want. That's the thing with help from me is light exactly great glory, though Adam fitting in I'm introducing people to demand that everything about them. One night is the ultimate in overdrive.

I can explain why not get out but I mean don't get me wrong on dad that I may not highlight I that I may not be your no be able to coach them through everything like I bet if I girl all the 21 but by strongly beating the witness oh that that bring in the got something people can come to church to learn more about right. But the interesting thing is in the church that like last Wednesday night at I did. God doesn't allow people to get that this is not about the interesting thing I'm struggling to try that show Scripture that I question my show Scripture that I can pointer to go but it out more lady, I don't think he was allegedly say that God is there anything that you could say that God does allow. This is the date the angle of the light.

But if my body is that it is ample and begin doing what he will guide you know it's hard but might it doesn't want to die. I need something more open to the fact that no enemy will try. This is Exodus 411 Exodus 411 and it's the context in this God is telling Moses to go to speak to Pharaoh and Moses want to do a slow speech and slow of tongue.

Verse 11 the Lord said to him who has made man's mouth or who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing, or blind, is it not I the Lord to very clear verse and people say God will never do that yes he does and he said it right there and I've shown this to people and they don't do that because her theology doesn't match Scripture stuff to say God is in every work time and all the stuff you can understand that this is part of what God allows and allows it for various reasons, and sometimes actually intervenes and causes as the Scripture says, Exodus 411 that I would find where God actually.not not allowed go by. I reburied allow where God is, and that bet fell that you and you can use Exodus 312 six units. Another thing where God does something like that is reduced so you manually talk last night you and I was just surprised that your your acceptance of this request, and jokes. He couldn't believe it. You know, and you know and I don't like this does what I said last night you know I said I would be better friends who discovered a stage IV lung cancer and is still alive after couple three years and so just never allow Bud's you do a lot for the Lord certainly help form out a great deal in is when people know that the just right in the drive up while yeah well I think I would eat you last night and I never wanted you had bought it okay for the glory and bearing that you know will get the creek to cure. House residents yet but that but yet anyway, thank you very much for the very violent and that the after there has been something like like it and I might witness and never actually been stronger when it come that you know preaching and teaching the gospel to no end run from him but it is like a benefit become interesting folks in the church like God is going to be like how you want the guys that hung out with you know who had a child had stopped off the guy that hung out with them every day. Why anymore special. Why should I you know not have the influence and it is going to bring him glory held. It's hard enough so I was I was trying to search it out to find it undefined for God actually more than just loud that I called back so I don't I don't think that because my cancer but I do believe they are part, but I do believe that allowing the inflection.

I looked in my 11 with 21 guys and only five of the left live and died on the boat yet you know that the aftermath of what happened to think that will be all right.

Sure Glenn's brother writes all right right sobering stuff but he's got more questions will talk to Glenn you can email a second forward stuff to Patricia from Vermont. Welcome around here, 90 okay will have left Lily a couple minutes so we got my wife and about what you believe about women in the church teaching and preaching. Women are not to be pastors and elders are not to be teaching authority over men in the church is first Timothy 212 and 13 and the elder, which is a form of a preacher to foregoing elder, that's out of first in first Timothy 517. The elder Titus chapter 1 and first Timothy chapter 3 is to be a man clearly enters theological reasons for federal headship representation etc. so it's not the position of the woman. To be preaching or teaching in a church like that government should teach women and teach children but not to teach men enough to be pastors, not to be an elder mostly deacons according to Scriptures, and all debate anybody publicly on it. All debate anybody publicly school the Scripture says, but unfortunately have a lot of fun. Churches that don't believe in God's word in this area is submitted to their cultural desires and they have women pastors and elders and so I save anybody's got that in the church leave the church either hello yeah I'm back believe that women can't be preacher of the Bible teaches. The Bible teaches MacArthur a guy that I heard on the online schedule. MacArthur teaches the same thing because he also teaches the Bible. If you go to car car literacy CAR.G look up women pastors only.I okay call back tomorrow.

They left Raleigh with Carolina. Sorry, but tomorrow is revelation with Don more folks bless another program powered by the Truth Network
