Classic Christianity – The Book of John P88 (08-28-23)
Jesus says, “Feed My Sheep”
We are at the end in our study of the book of John. We will be going into our next study of the book of Hebrews, which actually explains in great detail the New Covenant that we now live under. How appropriate that is, when we consider the instructions that Jesus gave to Peter and quite frankly the other disciples were there also. Jesus said the things directly to Peter to heal him. To make sure that Peter was aware that Jesus wanted him to be comforted by the fact that Jesus wanted him for service in the Kingdom of God. Jesus’ instructs, “Feed My lambs,” for those who are just arriving and or new in the body of Christ. Jesus instructs, “Shepherd My sheep,” for those that are in the flock, and have been in the flock for a while, guide them, instruct them, help them along the way. Jesus instructs, “Feed My sheep,” for feeding on the word of God. Yes we can all be used by the Holy Spirit to do the work of the ministry. We are one with the Lord Jesus … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – The Book of John P87 (08-23-23)
Jesus says, “Stop Doubting and Believe!”
~ There is a key component to the New Covenant message today, Your Sins are forgiven, God is NOT counting your sins against you. Many have heard the message of truth, yet they give lip service to it. And even worse than that, they teach and preach a lie of ongoing forgiveness by God. They have not exercised faith. As we have seen, there are all types of examples of this. Even to the point where people that should know better are propping up ministers of Satan that teach the lie of ongoing forgiveness, or are teaching the lie that only the elect’s sins were forgiven at the cross instead of the sins of the whole world. We see these examples left and right of false teachers being propped up by people that declare they know the truth of forgiveness, yet they still promote deceivers on their social media platforms or even what they say to others. They justify it because they think this one sin or that one sin being talked about is MORE important than the TRUTH of God not counting your sins … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

In Christ Jesus You Are Saved Completely ~ There Are No Buts!
~ Today, just like in the past, there are people that will say, Yeah, I was saved, BUT if you sin too much, you can lose your salvation. The people that teach this will never be able to tell you how much sinning is required to lose your salvation, but they will still claim that someone can lose salvation. People like this don’t have a clue what salvation is. And they are also not being led by the Holy Spirit, because they live a life of buts. For if righteousness could be gained by obedience to the law, then Christ died for nothing. A person without the Spirit of God living in them, does not understand the things of God. If you are in Christ Jesus, it says you have the mind of Christ living in you. Start trusting him for TRUTH if he does live in you.
~ “But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” Galatians 5:18

The Day You Were Born Again, You Received God’s Holy Spirit!
~ The Day of Pentecost spoken of in the book of Acts (fifty days after Jesus’ resurrection was the first Pentecost). Prior to that date nobody was born again of the Spirit of God. That’s important for us to understand, because that marks the day the whole world changed for Man. We should be jumping for joy, and realizing we are a new creature in Christ Jesus when we each had our day of Pentecost! The apostles certainly became aware of something different in their lives on that very day. They also became BOLD in the Spirit of God!
~ “But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:” Acts 2:14
~ “Now turn over the book of Acts, next page over. In chapter two, the Holy Spirit came. And he came upon the disciples. He came to live within them the day that salvation was now complete, the Cross had already … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Are You Telling it Like it Is? Are You in Christ Jesus?
~ Today, there are lots of milquetoast “Christians” that don’t tell it like it is. They are either afraid of their place in their flesh, or maybe they are not saved in the first place. Our attitude should be that of Christ Jesus, if the Holy Spirit is alive living in the person today. Jesus told it like it is to those that thought they knew it all. He spoke to those that were dead with what the Father told him to say. Today, if you are in Christ Jesus, you have the same Holy Spirit living in you too. Allow Him to tell it like it is through you!
~ “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.” Matthew 23:27,28
