Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P40 (05-10-21)
The one thing people are looking for is unconditional love and acceptance. We cannot give that to someone else, not in the energy of our flesh. So much marital strife is because one spouse has unrealistic expectations on another, expecting their partner to provide what he or she is unable to provide. Yet, the Lord Jesus Christ commands us to love one another just as He loved us. So what is Jesus saying to us? Is He telling us to do something that is impossible for us to do? Yes and no, because it is not us doing it.
The key to the Christian life is a life of dependency, of trust in the one who loves you perfectly, and only God can do that, for God is love. Jesus, as the second Adam, modeled perfectly for us how we are to live. He limited Himself in the use of His divine attributes in a manner that we would have to relate to God, after having the Spirit placed in us at a new spiritual birth. Was it not from His complete dependency upon His Father? … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P21 (03-24-21)
How do you respond to the word of God? As you read the word, from those who are eyewitnesses of the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, or had an encounter with the risen Savior, how do you respond? Are they just words on a page? You can know what they say, but do you know what they mean? Do you know they are truly words from the living God? Who can make the word of God come alive to you as to its meaning, a meaning that transforms hearts and lives?
Hebrews 4:12 12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Unless a man is born again he cannot discern the things of God. To the natural man, the words of the bible sound like foolishness to him. Not so with the believer. He hears the words of the bible as to what they really are, words from the living God. The Spirit of God is living … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P3 (02-10-21)
You cannot separate the word of God from the person of Jesus Christ. If you will not or cannot believe the word of God is absolutely true, then how are you going to know if any of it is true, including truth about Christ Jesus. So how can we ever rest in salvation in the one who came to save us if we are not certain the book that recorded that salvation is true. So if it is true as it relates to the person of Jesus Christ, it has to be true in regard to what Christ claimed about every word He held in His hand.
The entire testimony of the bible rests upon the author, and that is Christ Jesus. The credibility of the book rests in the credibility of the author. Jesus said the word is totally true. Listen now as Bob George reads eyewitness accounts of those who had been with Jesus when He walked on the earth. What testimony do we have from Jesus’ own words concerning the Old Testament scriptures He held in His hands? What importance did He place … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P2 (02-09-21)
Do you have a plumbline to gauge whether something is true? The word of God is the plumbline for truth, to gauge our lives so that we are not ensnared and trapped in error in our thinking but can submit to God and resist the lie and live in truth. The battle in the world today, as in Jesus day, and since the beginning of time, has been the battle for the mind. That is where temptation starts.
Temptation is getting you to doubt what God has said, to doubt that God has the best in mind for you, and to believe that someone other than God has the answers to life, that someone else can give you what you need rather than God, or that you can meet your own needs and live independently of God, or even that He is not God. Satan has so deceived mankind that we have become slaves to the god of this world, who is Satan, where we experience so much heartache and pain.
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P606 (02-05-21)
When you are helped by the truth you receive, you are so grateful, especially all the more as you see that truth at work to set you free. So many callers have called to thank Bob for the truth they heard, from either a conversation on the Classic Christianity radio program or from the many resources he has available, as he helps people understand the truth from the scriptures, from what the Lord has revealed to him.
One of the most common questions is in regard to overcoming depression. First of all, depression is not unusual. It is so common to all men. God knows our tendencies, our weaknesses, and how our mind works. He is our creator after all. So why not go to Him for truth on such matters?
So first realize that our emotions respond predictably to what we put in our minds. If you see a scary movie, that scene you saw, your mind does not know the difference between reality and fantasy. So when we hear depressing news, or experience sad things in life, if you dwell on a past event in your life that … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
