Classic Christianity – The Book of John P47 (05-23-23)
Jesus Said, I AM The Gate and Narrow is the Way!
~ There is only one way to God and that is through Jesus, the gate for the sheep. If you are trying to get in by jumping over the gate, or climbing over it, the word of God calls people like this thieves and robbers. Jesus is of no value to a person like that. They think they can do it on their own and by their own standards.
~ Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:7-10
~ “And therefore, Jesus said, again, I tell you the truth. Now, here’s another one of the I ams, I am the gate for the sheep. If you want … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus Wants to Open up the Eyes of the Blind and Make Blind Those That Think They Can See
~ The self righteous person manifests itself in numerous ways today. Many get angry as hornets when you tell them that trying to obey the law will not save them, nor is God pleased with their self efforts. Others think that they are better than someone else, because they never physically murdered anyone, or committed adultery. But God is looking at the heart. Additionally, the child of God who abides in the Holy Spirit will face all types of name calling under the sun. As you learn more about the truth of this world, and see the lies all around us, people will call you crazy, or kick you out of their fellowship group because they will consider you very strange. Do not be surprised that the self righteous think themselves better than they ought, for that also happened when Jesus walked on earth himself. There is only one type of righteousness that is important to God, and that is the righteousness of Jesus himself. So judge yourself, are you standing in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – The Book of John P45 (05-17-23)
Grace and Truth Comes From God, Jesus Christ
~ For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ John 1:17
~ For those that do not hear the Spirit of Truth, they do not belong to Jesus. They do not have the Holy Spirit living in them. There are those that will always listen to the spirit of flasehood and error. They will not repent (change their mind), because of pride of self. They believe in their heart they know better than God.
~ “We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” 1 John 4:6
~ “When people are fighting against truth, it’s because they don’t possess the author of truth. And we have to understand that. You have people today who are adamantly fighting against the message of the grace of God. Why would you be fighting the message that God came to deliver to us? Moses came to give us law. But Jesus came to teach … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Jesus Christ P34 (01-11-21)
A saint said one time, “To err is human, but to forgive is divine”. Do we not have the tendency to put people on pedestals, to worship man, especially those in a leadership position, a president, a well-known or popular pastor, who has built up quite a respectful following. Let us not bow down to a man, or even an angel of God. God alone is worthy of worship. All of us are capable of doing wrong, and we will from time to time, in our frail humanity, and God knows that all so well but He loves us anyway. And He loves us to solve that problem we have that we cannot solve, and knowing we are still so prone to fail. That is a kind of love the world does not understand.
So we read some examples of people who fell down and worshipped Jesus. We read about the wisemen, who gave expensive gifts fit for a king and they fell down and worshipped Him, knowing that this baby is the promised Messiah the prophets spoke about, for they saw the star in the East to … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 47 (07-17-19)
Bob George finished the story of the account in John where Jesus healed a blind man. The Jewish leaders of the days attacked both Jesus and the man once blind but now can see. All they could see was a violation of their law, of breaking the Sabbath by spitting on the ground, making mud, and washing the man’s eyes on the Sabbath. Everyone is born spiritually blind. Jesus came to make the blind see. Bob shared his own testimony of those early years he was blind and lost. He also shared the testimony of John Wesley, a pastor and minister who was blind and lost, sharing simply what he thought was true but was blind until the day he understood justification by faith alone in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ upon hearing a message from the book of Romans. Prior to that, the teaching he was under was by blind men. Prior to being born again, he thought he could see. He was blind thinking he could see. So too all of us once were.
