Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P5 (02-16-21)
You cannot separate the word of God from the person of God. They are so intertwined. When God says something it is a total reflection of who He is. You cannot separate who He is from what He says. They are one and the same, unlike us. God is not like us. When someone asks us, “How are you doing?”, we say, “Fine” when we know very well we are not fine. We can be phony. God is never phony. When God speaks, it is always truth.
The scriptures are the very words of God and Jesus, who is God, quoted from His own words. When scriptures prophecy something is going to happen, it happens as recorded in the scripture. Scriptures spoke of what is going to be fulfilled in Christ long before the unfolding events happen, and those events happen just as the Word says it will happen.
Throughout His earthly ministry Jesus validated the Word of God as the absolute standard of truth. The gospels record Jesus making almost 160 quotations from or allusions to the Old Testament. Three-fourths of the books in the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P4 (10-28-19)
Bob George continues sharing from the book of Romans. Bob beings by providing a background of the culture of Rome, a booming city, a place to be in that time in history, with art, literature, mighty army, the greatest nation on the earth at that time, but also a city filled with pagan idolatry and emperor worship.
Bob then spent most of his time on one verse, Romans 1:17. Bob explains the meaning of common terms, such as gospel and salvation. What is the gospel? What is the power of the gospel? Paul went to Rome to proclaim the gospel. Bob explains that the gospel went first to the Jew and then the Gentile. So the gospel is for everyone, not just for the Jew. That was a new concept in those early days, after Jesus rose from the dead. Bob explains that there are only three groups of people; Jews, Gentiles, and the Ecclesia, the body of Christ, the born again, made up of Jews and Gentiles. This could really be divided into two groups, the lost and the saved. There are lost Jews and lost Gentiles just as there … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P432 (4-18-19)
Bob George received a call from Jim who simply asked if love is more important than faith. Bob answered from scripture that love indeed is greater than faith because love is from God and God is love. God initiated love to us and we respond to that love in faith. So faith is man’s response to love. Do we accept his love or do we reject it? Do we even understand that love? Whoever does not love does not know God because God is love.
Bob George also received a call from a young college lady, Lynn, who had found herself in an unwanted situation. She had committed fornication and is now pregnant. She wanted to know if abortion was wrong. Bob graciously shared truth with her, that abortion indeed is the sin of murder. Bob graciously provided practical advice and explained the truth of God’s unconditional love toward her. He shared such practical wisdom to help her make choices in line with who she is as a born again believer. God created life and this child she has was a life God intended to live. So if the life of … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P430 (4-11-19)
Bob George answered calls from several believers who wanted clarification of truth. There are many things people hear from the church world today. Oftentimes what they hear is confusing and contrary to what they have been reading in God’s word. There is a tendency to trust what a pastor says over what can clearly be revealed from God’s word. Remember, the Holy Spirit is your teacher and He will guide you into all truth. Take heed to His word.
Michael was puzzled about these parents who take their kids to psychologists to get treated for behavioral issues like attention deficit disorder. Where does that all come from. Bob tells people to go to the manufacturer. Who created our bodies and knows how we are made? God. Then go to God and find out about how our mind, will and emotions work. Yet, oftentimes, the first person we see is a psychologist, and more often than not, he does not even know the Lord. Why go to the ungodly for counsel?
Classic Christianity Radio (02-25-19) – The Mystery of God Part 1
Bob teaches from Ephesians about how the Jews and Gentiles are to be united under one body through the mystery revealed to the apostles and prophets by revelation from Jesus Christ. That in Christ, you, even a Gentile, and the Jew too, can be made holy and blameless in His sight, a message of God’s redemption and grace through Jesus Christ!
Ephesians 1:1-3 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to God’s holy people in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul was named an apostle by direct revelation from God, confirmed later by the rest of the apostles.
Ephesians 3:2-6 2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
