Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P726 (04-15-22)
“It is Finished!” Confess: Agree With God That Your Sins Are Forgiven!
Do we really believe in what Jesus did on the cross, when He cried out, “It is Finished!”? Or do we simply give lip service to His statement? Jesus forgave you for all of your sins on the cross. That does not mean everyone is saved. Reminder, salvation is life. It is His life coming into you when you place faith in Him and what He did for you. Now we say, “Thank you Jesus” as a confession of our faith. We thank Him for the forgiveness He did on the cross for us. Today we can boldly proclaim, “Behold the Lamb of God who TOOK AWAY the sins of the world!” Do you believe it? Do you really believe in Him? Which side of the cross do we live on today?
The first caller was Eddie from Harlingen, Texas. His question was in regards to visions, and wondered if visions were for today. The topic then went into prophecy too.
Bob explains to Eddie that with Jesus, prophecy and visions were replaced by Jesus. Now Bob did mention during the tribulation period people would be prophesying in such a way as pointing out the truth of the word of God. He also mentioned what prophecy was actually meant to be in the new covenant that we live under today. Bob pointed to 1 Corinthians 14:3. Listen in as Bob goes into more detail about this area.
1 Corinthians 14:3
3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.
The second caller was John calling from Clarksville, Tennessee. He was a soldier scheduled to be deployed overseas. He mentioned to Bob how much he appreciates getting packages sent overseas from the ministry. He also had a number of comments in the area of how many pastors are out there teaching what appears to be sound doctrine about the finished work of Jesus on the cross to begin with and then in the next minute they are teaching that you need to ask for forgiveness, as in the false understanding of 1 John 1:9 that is taught today. (Order multiple copies of 1 John 1:9 at an excellent price, from our online store for handing out to family and friends)
Bob explains the people that are teaching this are double minded, unstable in all ways. People fail to understand that everyone’s sins were forgiven at the cross and that people think salvation is getting their sins forgiven today. They don’t understand that salvation is life, the life of Jesus coming to live in the believer. Listen in as Bob expands upon all things related with this false teaching of asking for forgiveness that is so prevalent today.
10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

The next caller was Mary calling from Detroit, Michigan. She had a question in regards to the Mormon religion and wanted to know what was being taught over there.
Bob matter-of-factly explains that the Mormons are not Christians. They believe in lots of false teachings and even how the Mormon religion got started was a con job that was sold to people. Listen in as Bob shares with Mary the details in regards to the Mormon religion.
The next caller was Catherine in Victoria, British Columbia. Her question was: What does it mean when Jesus said, “why have you forsaken me?”
Bob explains this was a quote from the 22nd Psalm that starts off, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And then goes ahead to describe death by crucifixion, hundreds of years prior to the fact that there was such a thing as death by crucifixion. Death by crucifixion, was a Roman means of torture. Because this was a prophesied event, Jesus is pointing to the writing of that prophesy hundreds of years prior to His own death on the cross.
Listen in as Bob shares his thoughts on the matter.
1a My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
The last caller was Lenny, calling from Roseville, Michigan. He was mentioning that Bob had already answered the question he was going to ask about the resurrection life that we now live in. He says, “I don’t confess my sins anymore.”
Bob clarifies what confession really is. It’s not that Christians don’t confess sins anymore, it’s that they don’t confess in order to get more forgiveness. We confess (agree with God) concerning our sins and thank God that He took our sins away at the cross. Confession is good, but don’t let it be perverted to think you are confessing in order to obtain forgiveness of sins. There is a subtle difference yet a distinct difference between the two. We don’t confess to get forgiven, we confess (agree with God) that we are forgiven.
