Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P33 (07-01-20)
This gospel of God’s grace, of Christ in you and you in Christ, your only hope, is nothing new. It has been preached by the apostles, and by men from generations past. Bob happened to find a book written by a missionary to India around 1929, that his wife Amy found, where the same truth he has been preaching has been preached. It is so encouraging to hear. God raises up men to proclaim truth, teachers na evangelists and missionaries, so that people may know God and His Son, Jesus Christ, to know eternal life.
2 Timothy 2:15 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
When the apostle Paul says that Christ is your only hope of glory, what does he mean? When he is saying Christ is our only hope of glory, he is saying there is no hope for you. There is no way for you and me to have a relationship with the living God apart from coming alive to a … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P28 (06-22-20)
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 is eternal.
Ponder over this scripture. How much time do you and I spend on things that are temporary, the seen things, when the Lord tells us to keep our eyes on Him and things that are eternal? We know our bodies are wasting away. Anyone over forty certainly has a greater understanding of that, and certainly someone in their fifties. But we are told to number our days so we may gain a heart of wisdom. We need to evaluate our priorities in life and invest in things that last forever, in worthy ministries to get the message of God’s grace into the hearts of men. We need to invest our money, our time, and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P27 (06-17-20)
This hope we have is in this new glorious body we have been promised and being with the Lord forever. We have this hope, so there is no fear in death, by which we say, “Where, Oh death, is your sting. Where, Oh death, is your victory.” Paul writes to encourage the believers, both those who are still alive when the Lord returns, and those who have already died, of this hope. We will have a new glorious body like His when we see Him like He is, for He says He will transform our lowly bodies into glorious bodies like His because we shall see Him as He is. When we die He has told us that when we are absent from this body, this earthly tent, we shall be present with Him. So the Spirit reveals the truth of these things to us. He does so so that we can know this hope and not weep like those who have no hope. We hold onto what He has said and believe what He tells us, because that is what faith is, believing what He … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P24 (06-10-20)
We have a lot of disturbing news recently, of riots and murder in our streets. We wonder if there will ever be peace on earth. But by faith, we know what God has said, That in this world you will have trials and tribulations while this earth remains as it is with sinful man. But we also know in the end there will be a new heaven and a new earth and God will make all things new. But we know what God has said so we do not have unrealistic expectations at this current state. It is unrealistic to expect that we can do something to reclaim America for God, to make God do what we want Him to do, or to think we can do something that will bring about peace. The peace that God gives is something the world knows nothing about. God’s peace does not depend on circumstances. Peace is what God gives when we place our trust in Him, when we act in faith in what God has promised. Why then did Jesus say, “Be of good cheer, for I have … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P539 (05-28-20)
From time to time, is it not wonderful to hear encouragement from those who are helped by hearing truth from God’s word, as you were able to participate in the divine nature, allowing God to speak through you? There is no greater joy, Paul says, than to see my children walking in the truth. At times, we can grow weary, but God promises that His word does not return void, and God never forgets the labor of love you do in the Lord. Even Enoch speaks even though he is dead, the testimony of God, of what faith in God is all about. Think about it. Enoch was a man noted by his faith, and faith is what pleases God. Enoch did not face death, but God took him up, and he was no more, for God took him to be with Him, for scripture says he pleased God. God is taking all of us to be with Him one day, and all of our troubles, trials and tribulations will cease. Does it not help you see that for the joy set before Christ endured the cross, scorning it’s shame?… Listen to Broadcast & Read More
