Episode 775 Show Notes 

From the Show

God’s people were not an mighty imperial army—they were slaves who had been battered for hundreds of years—and God uses Israel to judge the Amorites and Canaanites and their great evil of child sacrifice.

–Adriel Sanchez

What’s the Difference Between Old Testament Holy War and Modern Jihad?

Questions in this Episode

  1. I believe God walked with me in person and taught and trained me how to be an apostle, taught me the protocols of the temple of my soul, how to enter his presence and what not to do in his presence and so much more. Why are there so few churches who teach that there are still apostles today?
  2. What does Genesis 1:2 mean?
  3. When I hear on the news about war, terror, and devastating things happening in other countries, where people are being slaughtered by terrorists, it sometimes leads me to think about the Old Testament passages where God ordered Israel to take over the land and sometimes kill the people who lived there, both men, women and children. I have a hard time seeing that this killing of, especially children, was something that God was behind. Could you help me understand this more?
  4. If the vaccine is not the Mark of the Beast, is it a way of conditioning to one day take the mark?
  5. How do you conquer lust?
