The Law Cannot Give You Life ~ Only Jesus Can Give Life!
~ “Now, here’s the good news. Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Because through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of Life, set me free from the law of sin and death. Under the law, the wages of sin is death. And the gift of God is life. There was no human solution to that, folks, there was only a godly solution, and that is through the only one who could give you and me life and that’s Christ Jesus. Why? verse three For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature. What was the law powerless to do? We talked about that a couple of weeks ago, it was powerless to bring life. If life could come through the law, then Christ died for nothing. It was powerless to bring righteousness to a person. It was powerless to bring justification, if we could be justified through the law again, that Christ died for nothing. It could not do anything … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Those In Christ Jesus Have Been Set Free From the Law of Sin and Death!
~ “I don’t think there’s a more important thing for us to get a grasp on Bob than what we’re talking about right now. Because it’s the thing that causes the conflict and people sitting bound, doubting their salvation and everything else. And especially with teaching that sometimes takes place that if you’re truly born again, why you’ll never sin again, and you’ll never have a experience a desire to sin again, and all that type of thing, which is just utter nonsense. And so what you’re what you are dealing with folks, is the fact that we are left with these bodies of ours, with something called indwelling sin living in these bodies of ours, it’s no longer I, And who am I? Well, I’m a child of the living God. That’s who you are. If you are in Christ Jesus, you’re a child of the living God. But there’s new identity this new you this being born again of the Spirit whereby God’s Spirit has now come to take up residence … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Reign Under the Grace of God, Freed From the Law
~ “You know, there’s a world of difference between being under the law and reigning in life to the one man Christ Jesus living above the law, I’ll say, it’s kind of like, someone asked once someone one time, how are you doing? He said, Well, under the circumstances, I’m doing okay, they said, What are you doing under those? God didn’t call us to live under the circumstances, he called us to reign above the circumstances. But I want to tell you, as long as you’re under the law, you’re never going to reign in life, all you’re going to do is to be condemned to death. Yes. And so we have been studying Bob for the last number of weeks. As a matter of fact, we are just now approaching a halfway mark, in regard to our study series, A Closer Look at Law and Grace, a closer look at to see what the law is, and to see what the grace of God is. We have been freed from the law not so that we … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus Wants You to Enter Into The Promised Land
~ Just as the Israelites of the days they came out of Egypt and crossed over the Red Sea, by the power of God, they still refused to go into the promised land, we are much like them today. They refused to trust God and refused to cross over from the desert, into a land flowing with milk and honey. So too with us. We get saved and are set free from being a slave in Egypt, but still live as a slave in the desert. We fail to trust God and cross over into the promised land. We can be busy and barren in the desert or we can live in the promised land that Jesus provided for us and be rich and alive in Christ Jesus, where you rest from your works and live in Him. The choice is yours. You will not be happy in the desert though and you will never be able to go back to Egypt either. You will hate it in the desert. You will only have manna to eat and will … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to base their beliefs and build their lives. The word of God declares that Jesus Christ is that foundation of truth. With that in mind, let’s now take A Closer Look at … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
