Grab Bag for the lambs and sheep, about Job and the strengthening


Welcome to this weeks Grab Bag! For those of you who don’t know what this is, let me explain. Each week I post a “Grab Bag”, I try to get it on Monday but this week is a little hectic with appointments for our soon-to-be-here-lord-willing child. Also, If you leave questions in the comments, then I will reply and also add those questions to the podcast. If you email me questions related to this post then I will also add those to the podcast episode. During the episode I will go in a little more detail than I could using the blog. Last weeks episode got postponed due to some scheduling conflicts. You can expect one this coming Saturday. I will have last weeks Grab Bag and this weeks Grab Bag in the next episode. So if you have any questions you want to get in from last weeks, then hop to! The title of the Grab Bag is usually something funky, a mix of all the things in the post, and by the time you get through the post you will understand the title… I hope :) At the end of each question I leave a question for you to respond with. I will also go over the scriptures, in the podcast, which I found for the answers to the questions as well. So anyway, here it goes!

Episode 010 – Great abundance of the heart will bring forth good things.

Hello everybody and welcome to another week of Frequent Apostolic Questions. My name is Dakota Sutcliffe and this is THE podcast about getting answers to your bible questions.

Segments for Today:
Grab Bag
WOW

Grab Bag Segment
In this segment we go over the most recent Grab Bag posted on the website. If there were any questions in regard to the Grab Bag, then we would answer those questions here and expand on it here in the podcast.

Who was king David’s great grandmother?

Matthew 1:5-6
5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
6 And Jesse begat David the king
; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

Lets see what order they came in a more simple manner.

Boaz and Ruth
Obed
Jesse
David

So David’s father was Jesse, his grandfather was Obed, his great grandfather and grandmother were Boaz and Ruth.

Ruth was his great grandmother. :)

How many fish did the disciples catch when the net was not broken?

John 21:11
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.

They pulled 153 fish out of the water. There were so many, they had to pull the net onto the land. And of all of that, the net did not brake. :)

What defiles a man? -Olive

Matthew 15:11
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

And further explanation is here:

Matthew 15:18-20
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

So, it’s what comes out of the mouth which defiles a man. I feel like the scripture explains it clearly here: those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart. And I don’t know of any way else to word it.

WOW Segment
This is the Wide Open Word segment. In this segment we go over the moments where people go WOW when they are reading the word or hear it preached. Things just start getting put together and then a chain reaction and before you know it someone is just lost in thought over the whole thing. Or something simple that clicks when you might have read it a thousand times but now it just makes complete sense.

Matthew 12:34-35
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.

Luke 6:45
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Closed with naming the episode.

Grab Bag, great man, great number of fish and great grandmothers?

Grab Bag Monday is here again!

Who was king David’s great grandmother?

Matthew 1:5-6
5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
6 And Jesse begat David the king
; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

Boaz and Ruth
Obed
Jesse
David

So David’s father was Jesse, his grandfather was Obed, his great grandfather and grandmother were Boaz and Ruth.

Ruth was his great grandmother. :)

So, it’s what comes out of the mouth which defiles a man. I feel like the scripture explains it clearly here: those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart. And I don’t know of any way else to word it.

Are there any specific scriptures anyone has and want to go over them? I am thinking about a new segment to put in the podcast. :)

Thanks for reading this weeks Grab Bag!

Episode 009 – Sacrifices of righteousness and knowing from the beginning, there is one Lord

Frequent Apostolic Questions
Episode Number 009

Hello everybody and welcome back to another episode of Frequent Apostolic Questions. My name is Dakota Sutcliffe and this is THE podcast about getting answers to your bible questions.

Segments for Today:
Grab Bag

Grab Bag Segment
In this segment we go over the most recent Grab Bag posted on the website. If there were any questions in regard to the Grab Bag, then we would answer those questions here and expand on it here in the podcast.

It’s time for this weeks Grab Bag!

I got another question via email from KC, here it is:

What is the Gospel defined and how do you ”obey” it?

So Christ being the power and wisdom of God. Then the “power of God” unto salvation is the gospel.

1 Corinthians 1:24
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to
the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

So, to simplify:

Christ = power of God = Gospel

So, they all equal each other.

Gospel Defined – is the power of God unto salvation.
Obeying the Gospel – obeying Jesus, because Christ was God manifested in the flesh (John 1:14) it would be obeying God. For those who don’t know, God’s name is Jesus. :)

This has been added to the Definitions page as well!

What was in the beginning?

God, and to give a few scriptures to back that up. Please keep in mind these aren’t the only ones.

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

1 John 1:1
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

God is the beginning, his name is Jesus. :)

How many Lord’s are there in the bible?

Deuteronomy 6:4
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

Ephesians 4:5
One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

One Lord is in the bible! :D

WOW Segment
This is the Wide Open Word segment. In this segment we go over the moments where people go WOW when they are reading the word or hear it preached. Things just start getting put together and then a chain reaction and before you know it someone is just lost in thought over the whole thing. Or something simple that clicks when you might have read it a thousand times but now it just makes complete sense.

Psalm 51:17-19
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

Matthew 21:44
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Feedback

Dear Bro. Dakota,
RE: Your most recent podcast —
I’m in 100% agreement with you that we’re to give our all for the Lord Jesus. Like the old hymn says,
“All to Jesus I surrender”
Who would want to be married to a spouse who was 30% or 60% faithful? Who would want to be a spouse who was only 30% or 60% faithful?
“Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be My disciples.” John 15:8.

May you be found to be a one-hundredfold-er when you stand before Jesus!

Yours in Him,
Jim
