God Doesn’t Tempt Anyone, Nor Can God be Tempted!
~ “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:” James 1:13
~ We blame God for so many things in the world today instead of putting the blame on where it should be, on the evil one. Satan even has the Christian world blaming God on the fall and even the creation of the world, as though God didn’t do his job properly. Let’s start with the basics. It’s so important for us to understand that God cannot be tempted, nor does God tempt anyone. God created us with a freewill and the ability to choose. Some people get into the mode of thinking that because God foreknew what was going to happen in the Garden of Eden and with everything else, they then place the blame on God for all the wrongs and evil in the world. But here is the thing, we are not God, we are not all knowing as God is. His foreknowledge is for God and Him alone. That’s God’s … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P04 (09-26-22)
Do We Really Believe it is Finished? Do You Believe Jesus Completed Forgiveness on the Cross for You?
~ Most people involved in Christianity are living like they are still in the desert, or worse, still in Egypt as a slave. They refuse to enter into the promised land by faith. Because they still have one foot in the law, and the other foot in grace, which is really not grace at all. They pretend that they are obeying the 10 commandments, and they know in their hearts they can’t obey them, so then they pretend that they try and obey them. They call God a liar by their very actions. They make a mockery of the cross. God tells us to enter into the New Covenant. Leave behind the old, and enter into the new today. Enter into the Promised Land for you!

Then He Adds: “Their Sins and Lawless Acts I Will Remember NO More.”
~ Today people are acting like they are living in both the old and the new covenant at the same time. They pretend that they are obeying the 10 commandments, and they even make up their own rules and commands that are man-made, and think they can obey those too. They even set a pecking order down, and believe they are more righteous than others because they obey their man-made laws. Yet they are hypocrites. They never come to the knowledge of truth. These people are double-minded and unstable in all ways. They will teach doctrines of men instead of God. They will have large followings and many people are being led astray because they think there must be a little bit of good teaching mixed in with the error. Yet they will not go back to the foundation of Christ Jesus and realize or understand that we live in a new covenant today, where God said, their sins and lawless acts will I remember no more. Hebrews 10:17

Being Clothed in the Righteousness of Jesus Christ
~ “That’s grace. It is also a picture, it is a foreshadowing of what was going to happen, obviously, 1000s of years later, when Jesus Christ clothed us in His righteousness. So the grace of God clothed man when he fell, and the grace of God clothes us today, in the midst of our sin, taken away at the cross, clothed in his righteousness, so that we stand today, not in our own little Christian fig leaves. But we stand today clothed in his righteousness. And folks today, as man today is still trying to find his acceptance in the sight of God through what he does. All that is, is making a bunch of dumb Christian fig leaves, and hanging them on yourself, instead of resting in the clothing that has been provided for you in Christ Jesus, and rest in the fact that you have been clothed in his righteousness.”
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P01 (09-19-22)
Law Was Given by Moses ~ Grace Was Given by Jesus Christ
~ The Contrast Between Law and Grace The Word of God makes abundant use of a very helpful teaching tool—contrasts: light and darkness, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan, life and death, lost and saved, just to name a few. And one very beautiful and educational contrast found throughout the Bible is law and grace.
Far from being a dull theological subject, law and grace is the very backbone of the gospel. The difference between the two is at the heart of how a person is saved and, equally important, how a person will live the Christian life. Law and grace is not a side issue, it winds its way into every nook and cranny of the Christian life.
Without a proper understanding of law and grace, a person will be “double minded, and unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8). The Bible will be hopelessly contradictory for such a person and he will be unable to relate to God with confidence and thanksgiving.
