Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 78 (09-30-19)
Let us join Bob now as he gets started with today’s lesson. God has revealed everything of Himself to us in Christ Jesus.
We have direct access to the Father. No intermediary is necessary for anyone to approach God.
Who were the disciples depending upon for information while Jesus was with them? Jesus. They asked him questions continually, did they not? Did he answer questions continually? Did he teach them continually? Everything we know about Jesus, about his kindness, about his goodness, about his forgiveness, about his dedication to you and me, and his faithfulness to you and me, every single thing we know about God and his character has been revealed to us in Christ Jesus.
In times past, God revealed Himself in many ways, through dreams and visions, through nature, but in these last days He has revealed Himself to us in His Son Christ Jesus.
1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all
Classic Christianity – Book of John p16 (11-14-18)
Bob George continues teaching from the book of John, beginning at John 5:45. Bob explains how natural man focuses on the things of this world and, as believers, how easy it is to take our focus on the one who is our life, Jesus Christ. Then, when we do focus on Christ, then we miss what Jesus really came to do. Do we come to him only to meet physical needs, such as food and clothing and protection from a storm. Does one trust that he is one who is with you always in every trial and tribulation in this life? What about knowing Him and having life in His name? Have we forgotten why he came? This life is but temporary.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Complete Forgiveness and Unconditional Love of Jesus Christ
Bob George is speaking on the subject of the complete forgiveness and unconditional love of Jesus Christ. Hebrews 7:27, 9:12, 14-16, 10:10, Galatians 3:10, 6:13-14; 1 Peter 3:21; Romans 5:9-10, 6:23, 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; 2 Corinthians 5:19 and 1 John 5:12 are scriptures he shares from God’s word. He addresses common misunderstandings of what was accomplished when Jesus died on the cross and how one is saved from eternal death and given new life.
If you are still under law, then you are under a curse (Galatians 3:10). The law states that cursed is everyone who does not continue to obey all that is written in the law (Galatians 3:10). So relying on circumcision or baptism or any other law cannot save anyone (Galatians 6:13-14, 1 Peter 3:21, Romans 6:23a). He points people to the solution for sin in Jesus Christ (Romans 6:23b). In him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sin (Ephesians 1:7). Jesus became a curse for us (Galatians 3:13). Jesus really did take away the sins of the world (John 1:29) eternally for everyone when he died on the cross (Hebrews 7:27, 9:12, 10:10) but that does not mean … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Bob teaches out of the Book of Galatians, Chapter 6. Bob talks about the circumcised group (the Jews) and the uncircumcised group (the Gentiles). God doesn’t look at the outside of man but looks at what is going on the inside. Understanding it is a relationship with God that is important for every person.
Not Circumcision but the New Creation
“See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!
Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh. May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation. Peace and mercy to all who follow this rule—to the Israel of God.
