Welcome to another episode of the Frequent Apostolic Questions podcast. This is Dakota Sutcliffe and this is the podcast about answers to your bible questions.
The segments for today are:
Wide Open Word
First I will give a little update about myself. Lord willing my wife and our son and I will be moving to another house soon, I will keep everyone posted on that and it may or may not effect the podcast. We have an inspection setup to look at the house on Tuesday in the morning. And from that point forward, it should be smooth sailing, Lord willing.
There are a couple things I also wanted to bring up before I continue. I am not a pastor. I havenâ€™t ever preached a sermon, so I am not a preacher. I am just one of those guys who is trying for perfection in the word of God. If I donâ€™t have a scriptural answer, then I donâ€™t have an answer at all. Thatâ€™s not to say â€œIf I donâ€™t have an answer then, there isnâ€™t an answerâ€. Maybe I havenâ€™t studied something in particular enough to find an answer. It would take a little time to study each thing which comes up. My passion here is to be able to share the knowledge I have retained.
Grab Bag Segment
This is where we go over the most recent Grab Bag posted on the website. If any comments were posted on the Grab Bagâ€™s or questions brought up from them we will go over them a little more in depth here.
The first question:
Who was Adam?
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
Adam was the first man to become a living soul.
Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
He was also a son of God.
What does it mean when the scripture says â€œLet us make man in our own imageâ€ in Genesis 1:26?
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
The scripture states in Ephesians 1:11 the following:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
He was counseling his own will in Genesis.
Of light and darkness, which was there first?
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Darkness was there first.
Wide Open Word Segment
This segment, we talk about our WOW moments. Things in the scripture which make you go wow, those wide open word moments.
I see men as trees, walking.
And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Something to look for to come in the coming posts is a set of definitions. Each week or so I will add a definition to a list and cover it in a blog post and then a podcast episode. These are definitions to help us understand the word of God when we are reading. Grab Bags will be changed up a little bit, they will be posted, Lord willing on Mondayâ€™s now instead of Fridays. This is because of the time span between the Grab Bag and the podcast episode. This will allow anyone who has a question about the Grab Bag, they can get it to me before the podcast episode and I can put it in my notes to read it on the show.
