Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P21 (06-03-20)
We exercise faith every day. We trust the chair we sit in will hold us up, that the car we drive will get us to the intended destination, that the food we eat at a restaurant is not poisoned. In a similar way, faith in Christ Jesus is what allows us to access what He has already provided for us, to live in the new life He has given us. Our faith does not cause God to do something any more than swallowing causes you to live. The good food, not the junk food, is what causes you to live. Our faith allows us to access, or enter into what God has already given. Faith is trusting what God has said, in the promises that God has made, that He is able to fulfill what He has promised. As Jesus said, man shall live by the very words of God. That is our spiritual food that sustains us.
Can you think of the many promises God has made to us? How about that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life? Do you … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P20 (06-02-20)
When you think of all those saints, those heroes of the faith that have gone on before us, we are to imitate their faith. What attitude of heart did they have? We read about many of them in the scriptures, and a sampling of them in Hebrews 11. Consider the faith of Abraham. The apostle Paul mentions the faith of Abraham when writing a letter to the Romans. God credited His faith as righteousness. Now, also consider Paul’s former way of life, when he was referred to as Saul of Tarsus. Paul described himself as the worst of all sinners. He had given approval to the death of Stephen. He went about trying to destroy the faith that he now proclaims. Did God ever give up on him? No. Has God ever given up on the Jews, these thousands of years? No. He has promised that all Israel will be saved. He will get their attention in the last days, and there will be a remnant who will accept Christ by faith. Even now there are Jews, and people all over the world, coming to Christ … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Listen as Bob George summarizes some key foundational concepts on faith, hope and love. Listen as he retells what he has shared the past several weeks, what true faith is, what faith is not, the examples of faith we read about in Hebrews 11, of Abraham and others, of their faith, where some escaped the sword while others were sawed in two, those who conquered kingdoms and others who were poor and destitute, but to all of them, God commended them for their faith. What can we learn from this? As you listen, follow along with the transcript, where additional scriptures are posted, so you can test and see for yourself if what he says is so.
Is faith something we have enough of to get God’s hands moved? Is faith what you call manipulating God, that I have enough faith to tell God what to do and then He has to do it because of the size of my faith? Or, is faith believing what God has said, believing what He has promised in Christ Jesus, in what He has already provided and done for … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

In this day and age of the Coronavirus, and various events going on in the political realm, people have asked even today, what needs to be done to stop these evil or deceived people who are pushing for this one world government? What should pastors do? Even in Bob’s lifetime, people called in asking the same question. First of, if you are a pastor, or any born again believer for that matter, do not get side-tracked from your primary purpose, and that is to proclaim the gospel. All of these events we continue to see happening are certainly signs of the end times and preparation for what we know is prophesied in Revelation. The greatest avenue we have, each citizen of the United States, is to exercise our voting rights. If you are in Christ, then you need to ask for wisdom from God, so your vote is in accordance with understanding and discernment, for Jesus even told us to not let anyone deceive you. And, we are certainly instructed to pray for all those in authority over us that we may live peaceable and quiet lives.

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
