Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P4 (10-28-19)
Bob George continues sharing from the book of Romans. Bob beings by providing a background of the culture of Rome, a booming city, a place to be in that time in history, with art, literature, mighty army, the greatest nation on the earth at that time, but also a city filled with pagan idolatry and emperor worship.
Bob then spent most of his time on one verse, Romans 1:17. Bob explains the meaning of common terms, such as gospel and salvation. What is the gospel? What is the power of the gospel? Paul went to Rome to proclaim the gospel. Bob explains that the gospel went first to the Jew and then the Gentile. So the gospel is for everyone, not just for the Jew. That was a new concept in those early days, after Jesus rose from the dead. Bob explains that there are only three groups of people; Jews, Gentiles, and the Ecclesia, the body of Christ, the born again, made up of Jews and Gentiles. This could really be divided into two groups, the lost and the saved. There are lost Jews and lost Gentiles just as there … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P484 (10-18-19)
Bob George received calls for help from people in their every day life struggles. One person, Mary, called for help in regards to a struggle with her husband who is in and out of work. Another lady, Denise, called on behalf of young children, who are caught up in an unhealthy environment where improper sexual relations among adults has occurred, who were apparently flaunting that behavior, or were certainly having no remorse or even recognizing such behavior as sin.
Bob George, during his time on earth, established a counseling ministry, which allowed Bob to offer help to people who call in on his radio program with specific problems to receive help. It is evident to me, as an outward observer, listening to Bob on recorded messages or from the testimonies of others, is the great love Bob showed to hurting people. He made himself available, and even went out of his way to provide help for hurting people. If he cannot discern how best to help, such as due to limited time on a call-in program like this and with insufficient information of their circumstances, he would connect people with … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 70 (09-10-19)
We are so prone to follow for what He can give us. They followed him when he fed the five thousand. Why? The next day Jesus said to them, “The only reason you are following me is because you were fed on the other side of the lake”.
I have seen this again and again so many times in people today. In church work, working down on the streets, a guy says, “Give me a meal. What do I need to do? Get baptized. Lead me to the water”. So he gets baptized to get a meal and not to get Jesus. Thousands of times people take advantage of that to get numbers to their credit. The only reason they went to the water was to get a meal and not to get Jesus. You have to have discernment on that kind of thing to determine if they are sincere or just following you to get a meal. That is one of the dangers of just giving a meal. All you have accomplished is satisfying someone’s hunger for a couple of hours. You have not accomplished anything.
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 68 (09-04-19)
Bob George continues sharing from the 14th chapter of John. Jesus is very soon going to the cross to complete the work His Father gave Him to do. He received the command from His Father, to lay down his life only to raise it up again. His disciples are not understanding these things. They do not yet understand why Jesus is going away. Jesus is comforting them to let them know the unfolding plan God had before the foundation of the world. He will not leave them as orphans. A day is coming when he will send the promised Holy Spirit, that the prophets testified about. That day happened at Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit, for the first time, took residence in the hearts of men. That is what Jesus had said to Nicodemus, about what it means to be born again. Jesus will come to make his home in us and he will speak truth into us individually, so that we will know Him. The moment we understand the totality of what Jesus did for us, believe and are saved, the Holy Spirit takes residence in our hearts … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 61 (08-20-19)
Bob continues to share from John 12. Jesus identifies Himself as the Light of the world. We live in a world full of darkness. The real darkness is that there are souls that do not have the Spirit of God living in them. The Light of the world is not living in them and they are wandering in darkness. They are blind to the truth and cannot understand truth when they hear it. Those who are humble of heart listen to truth and let that truth sink in. If my heart is dead, then I want to know how to get my heart alive. One day the truth comes alive in them. They believe the truth and are saved. Who can explain this?
Just putting your faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and just putting your faith in that, something changes. One day you were going in one direction and the next, you are going in a completely different direction. Can you come up with an explanation for that? Were you hyped? Was it because of the brilliant presentation that somebody gave? A person once asked Bob, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
