Sunday, September 19 2021 The concept of hell is one of the most controversial, challenging, and potentially misunderstood teachings of the Christian faith. In this series we will look at what the Bible actually says and attempt to make sense of it all. This week we look at how notions about the afterlife seem to shift in the "period of silence" between the Old Testament and New Testament. We explore the history and writings that took place in this unique time in history including discussions on Hades, the Book of Enoch, and 2nd Maccabees. A message by Pastor Jon Pemberton of Renew Church of Cheney
Then Yonathan desired the king, that he would make Yahudah free from tribute, as also the three governments, with the country of Shomeron; and he promised him three hundred talents. So the king consented, and wrote cepheriym unto Yonathan of all these things after this manner: King Demetrius unto his brother Yonathan, and unto the nation of the Yahudiym, sends greeting: We send you here a copy of the cepher which we did write unto our cousin Lasthenes concerning you, that ye might see it. King Demetrius unto his father Lasthenes sends greeting: We are determined to do good to the people of the Yahudiym, who are our friends, and keep covenants with us, because of their good will toward us.

02:12 – Why did Jesus ask “Who touched me” when the woman with the hemorrhage was cured? 07:17 – Are the little scroll in Ezekiel and the little book that John eats in Revelation the same? 16:42 – Does the book of Job show that we're just pawns being played with by God and the devil? 28:45 – Can the resurrection of the dead mentioned by Matthew after the crucifixion be evidence for Mary's Assumption? 33:00 – Why are the Jewish armies praying for the dead in 2 Maccabees? 38:58 – If Christ's human knowledge was limited, how does that apply to his knowledge that the Samaritan woman had five husbands? 43:13 – Why did Jesus use Adam and Eve as an example of monogamous marriage when there's evidence Adam had multiple wives? 48:20 – Why doesn't John's Gospel come first? It starts with “In the beginning,” and Luke would flow right into Acts. …
I always question when the mainstream media demonizing someone or a group of people. The MainStream Media is the Devil and literally is working for Satan. So how could Satan point out something bad or evil? This is just a regime change nothing more, nothing less and obviously those who have rose to power are not American friendly or do not want to cooperate with the Beast. “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.” Revelation 13:15 Anyone against the Beast shall be killed or cut off. I recently saw that measure have been put in place that anyone that questions the integrity of the previous election or anyone that questions anything regarding the jab are now considered “Terrorist.” “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” Daniel 8:25 KJVA There is no such thing as the Taliban. Just like there is no such thing as the Tooth fairy or Santa Claus. One was created for you to love and the other was created for you to hate. It is just a distraction to take your focus off of the Beast System being implemented around you. 1 Maccabees 8:4 And that by their policy and patience they had conquered all the place, though it were very far from them; and the kings also that came against them from the uttermost part of the earth, till they had discomfited them, and given them a great overthrow, so that the rest did give them tribute every year.

Now when King Alexander heard these things, he honored Yonathan yet more.

Season 10, Ep 15: Most of were kids who dreamed of being rock stars. None of us had the single-minded determination to set about making it happen. Felix did, taking a bunch of mates at uni in Bristol to No.1 on the UK charts with the Maccabees. What's even more unexpected is the part that cricket played in Felix's life, two obsessions forming an unlikely partnership. Now he's written down that story, in a beautiful debut book that ties together ambition, grief, and loneliness, and the extraordinary power that any of those can have. Felix is a very special guest to talk through the tale of It's Always Summer Somewhere.

Questions Covered: 02:23 – Since Adam and Eve were supposedly the first two people on the earth, how could they be the parents of everyone? Wouldn't there have to be another family at least? 06:33 – I am Protestant and am wondering, since idolatry is a mortal sin, does that mean that those who committed idolatry in Maccabees did not go to purgatory? 16:23 – Should the Church have Eucharistic ministers or should the priest be the only one to distribute Holy Communion? 20:50 – Does social media bring us closer to God or further away?
