Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Finality of The Cross P15 (09-08-21)
The Forgiveness of Sins Has Been Done Once and For All and In Him You have Forgiveness of Sins and Are Made Complete in Christ Jesus
How is that two people can both hear the same message concerning Christ, and one will become born again and another not? Recall what Jesus told in the parable of the farmer who sowed his seed (Mark 4:1-25). As you read the scriptures, such as Hebrews, what is your attitude of heart? Do you read it with a filter on, as if only a priest can explain the meaning of it to you? Or are you reading it for answers to the meaning and purpose of life, that if I do not understand what this means, I will not be made alive or able to live? Are you reading it that if God Himself does not explain the meaning to me, I will not know what it means? Where is the condition of your heart, is it hard towards God or is it soft and pliable? Are you a child of God, having the Spirit of God living in you, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P4 (06-01-21)
As you ponder over the reason for the New Covenant, take a look at the history of the Israelites under an Old Covenant. The Old Testament is the recorded history of their failures to keep the law and of God’s faithfulness, His patience, kindness and mercy, in the midst of their failure. So why did they fail? The same reason we fail today. The law is holy, righteous and good. The problem is not with the law, but with us. To know about the real problem, just look at the fall of man in the garden of Eden.
God created Adam in His own image. Adam was created with free will, and he chose to live independent of God, to not trust God but instead to trust the lie of Lucifer, or Satan, in the garden of Eden, that you can be your own god and control your own destiny, to know right from wrong without God. God had warned him that the day he chose to eat of that knowledge of good and evil he shall die. He did and he died. He died spiritually, meaning … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

An interesting topic of discussion among many believers is when the man of lawlessness will be revealed and the timing of the rapture, that event in history spoken of in 2 Thessalonians, where we will meet the Lord in the air. Certainly, people have different understanding of that, and maybe it is because all of it has not been revealed in regard to the details of these things. We know a rapture will occur, but the details are written down but not easily discerned. Do you recall what the Lord told Daniel, whom God revealed details concerning end time events?
Daniel 12:8-10 8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”
9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

What is the purpose of the book of Hebrews? Have you ever heard a sermon on it? It is so valuable to understand the New Covenant we are living under today. Oftentimes the only passage people have heard about from Hebrews are Hebrews 6:4, and without understanding the entire context of what the author of Hebrews is writing about, people get all fearful that they are deliberately sinning, meaning they have committed one of the nasty nine or one of the dirty dozen, that they are going to be cast into a raging fire. So what do people do? They pull out their 1 John 1:9 and ask God to forgive them of their sins.
First of all, one must understand the totality of the cross. When the Jew is going back to the day of atonement, killing a bull or a goat, to get his sins forgiven, or the Catholic is going to the confessional booth to get his sins forgiven, or the Protestant is going direct to God to get his sins forgiven, quoting 1 John 1:9 out of context, what are they doing? They are sinning against … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
