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 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.
Itâ€™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 â€obeyâ€ 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.
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 donâ€™t know, Godâ€™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 arenâ€™t the only ones.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
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 Lordâ€™s are there in the bible?
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
One Lord is in the bible! :D
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.
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.
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
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,
â€œAll to Jesus I surrenderâ€
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,
Closed with naming the episode.
