Welcome to the eighth episode of Frequent Apostolic Questions. My name is Dakota Sutcliffe and this is THE podcast about getting answers to your bible questions.
The segments for today are the:
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.
This weeks Grab Bag
Who dissembled from the Gentiles?
11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.
13 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation.
Peter and the other Jews dissembled and Paul withstood him because Peter was the one to blame. Peter dissembled by withdrawing from the gentiles and showing the Jews he had no thing to do with them. When in fact he had been eating with them. He was tearing down when he was suppose to build up. He was separating when he should have been unifying.
What is idolatry?
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
Covetousness is idolatry.
What is the testimony of Jesus?
And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Previous Week Grab Bag.
What are we supposed to give thanks for?
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Give thanks to God for all things. :)
Who is the head of the church?
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Jesus is the head of the church.
What does scripture say about telling jokes?
3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Jesting should not be once named among you, and it is not convenient.
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.
The Three Attitudes
29 But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?
30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
Thief – whatâ€™s yours is mine and I am going to take it.
Priest – whatâ€™s mine is mine and I am going to keep it.
Samaritan – whatâ€™s mine is yours and I am going to give it.
This is the Frequent Apostolic Questions and Answers segment. In this portion, we go over any questions asked throughout the week. These may be questions from the comments, emails and recordings. If could find an answer, then I put it here. If I could not find an answer, then I will try not to put it in here so I donâ€™t cause any confusion.
The one question I have for this segment is:
How would a mute person show the evidence of the Holy Spirit? â€“ How do you know they are saved? -KC
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
If the person was a mute and the person receives the Holy Ghost, then that person will no longer be a mute.
This segment is the segment in which feedback is played or read! If there is enough time to go over any feedback given.
Got some feedback from Mr. Jim Kerwin. I wonâ€™t play the whole thing as it is kind of lengthy but to get the main idea of what he was saying, so I played a snippit.
So I replied back to him with, I agree completely with the thirtyfold being 30x and sixtyfold with 60x and hundredfold 100x. I also apologize for any confusion I may have caused anyone.
To explain what I was saying at about the mark 14:37min in the last episode:
Once the seed is cast, when the single seed has made it into the good ground, how fruitful do you make it? Do you go 100 percent and make it hundredfold, or do you just barely get by with thirtyfold only giving 30 percent effort?
That’s where the percents had come in, the effort. Because we are the ground to receive the seed, we have to bring forth the fruit and make it however much we make it.
In agreeance with the math part, if there is only 1 seed, then it is 1×30 and so on.
I wonâ€™t go into the whole thing. So basically the soil makes a plant after the seed is cast into, if it lands on good ground. When the plant comes up, if bares fruit. Good or Bad or none at all, which doesnâ€™t help the tree either. Just like the fig tree Jesus cursed, it didnâ€™t bring forth any fruit, and it withered away.
And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
If you have questions, comments or any other feedback, then you can email me at Dakota@FrequentApostolicQuestions.com. You can upload a recording of yourself to GE.TT as an MP3 or a WAV file, send me the link and I will (Lord willing) play it on the next episode.
Thank you for listening to this episode of Frequent Apostolic Questions. You all have a blessed day and let God be magnified.
