Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P73 (08-29-22)
The Peace of God That Passes All Understanding ~ Understanding His Love For Us
~ “When it comes to the fruit of the Spirit of love, of joy, of true peace, patience, kindness, goodness, that has to come from the Spirit, I cannot get the peace of God that passes all understanding in the world. That has to come from God, just like Joy has to come from God and Love that we’re talking about in First Corinthians 13, that is neither eros nor phileo, but it’s a word called agape. And agape means unconditional, love, no strings attached to it absolutely independent of the behavior of the one being loved, totally dependent upon the nature of the one doing the loving. And so all of those things have to be produced within, like I said, peace. What is it? What does Paul say about that? It’s the peace of God that passes all understanding. “

Today the Body of Christ is the Body of Believers
~ The church, the ecclesia, the True church is made up of born again believers in Christ Jesus. The church is not on the corner of walk and don’t walk. It is not someplace you go. No one goes to church. Sure we use that term in everyday talk, but the truth of the matter is that the church is all over the earth today, and the Holy Spirit has made us a part of that group, when the Spirit comes to indwell a person, they become part of the body of Christ Jesus.
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 … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P15 (01-03-22)
Rejoice in the Finality of the Cross and The Reality of The Resurrection
Welcome to a continuation A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection. We also encourage you to pick up a copy of A Closer Look at The Finality of The Cross.
Understanding both the Cross and the Resurrection are keys to understanding the gospel. When you study the word of God, allow the Holy Spirit to renew your mind and reveal the truth to you.
Romans 12:2 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Jesus took away the wrath of God for our sins. He did not atone for sins, He took them away. Propitiation means it was satisfied for the sins of the whole world. It is finished. He loved us so much that He did this for us! He took away ALL OUR SINS! Once we grab a hold of this Truth then we rest in His Love for us. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P14 (12-15-21)
When You Are In Christ Jesus, You Are A New Creation! A Saint!
Grab a hold of your identity in Christ Jesus. When Jesus makes you a new creation, He makes you a saint. You can never be a sinner again. As Bob tells it, you are a new butterfly, quit believing you are a worm.
John 15:5 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
So now, we abide in Christ Jesus. If you have Christ living in you, you are now a brand new person. You are a SAINT. You are no longer a sinner. Understand that you are no longer a sinner. God sees you as a saint. He sees you as a child of God. We need to see ourselves as He sees us!
1 John 4:10 (KJV) 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P27 (07-26-21)
You Have Been Made Competent as a Minister of the New Covenant
What is your competence? Is it your ability to obtain a job? Your intellect? Your abilities? Your ability to pull yourself up by your bootstraps, to make yourself holy? Or is the competence that you have from God, the competence to proclaim that He has done it all for you, to proclaim the message of God’s grace? Do you realize you are made competent as a minister of the New Covenant (2 Corinthians 3:5-6)?
Listen now as Bob George explains scriptures of how we are made competent as ministers of a New Covenant (2 Corinthians 3:5-11, 2 Corinthians 3:17-18). He contrasts the ministry of the Old Covenant, under the ten commandments, under the law, through scripture passages, as in Exodus 24:12, Exodus 31:18, Exodus 32:15-16, Exodus 34:1, and Exodus 34:29-35, in contrast to the New Covenant we are living under today. We enter into the New Covenant through faith in Christ, who has completed the work to make the New Covenant a reality. That reality is experienced in the lives of those who come to faith … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
