Classic Christianity Radio (02-27-19) – The Mystery of God Part 3
Bob George continues sharing from Ephesians a mystery that has now been revealed to the Gentiles. In this mystery is the gospel message of God’s grace, applicable to all men, Jew and Gentile, that in Christ all will be made holy and blameless before God. The wall of hostility between Jew and Gentiles has been set aside.
Romans 3:9-12 9 What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. 10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.”
Romans 3:21-23 21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. 22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity Radio (02-26-19) – The Mystery of God Part 2
Bob George continues teaching from the book of Ephesians concerning a mystery that the Gentile is saved the same way as the Jew, by faith in Jesus Christ. God planned before the creation of the world that in Him we were chosen to be made holy and blameless. Jesus Christ is the object of our faith. Sin entered the world through one man, Adam, and death through sin, so death came to all men because all sinned.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned
Sin, the cause of death, had to be solved for man to have new life, to be made holy and blameless. Only God is perfectly holy and blameless.
Psalm 99:5 Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
So what man needs is the very life of God. The problem of sin was solved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now, man is free to come to Jesus Christ for life. God was pleased to do this for … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity Radio (02-25-19) – The Mystery of God Part 1
Bob teaches from Ephesians about how the Jews and Gentiles are to be united under one body through the mystery revealed to the apostles and prophets by revelation from Jesus Christ. That in Christ, you, even a Gentile, and the Jew too, can be made holy and blameless in His sight, a message of God’s redemption and grace through Jesus Christ!
Ephesians 1:1-3 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to God’s holy people in Ephesus, the faithful in Christ Jesus: 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul was named an apostle by direct revelation from God, confirmed later by the rest of the apostles.
Ephesians 3:2-6 2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation, as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity Radio – Heirs of the Promise Part 3 (2-20-19)
Bob shares that the New Covenant is for us today from Hebrews 10. Now that Jesus shed his blood on the cross, taking all the sins of the world away, the Jews take off the old clothes of the Law and put on the new clothes of Christ’s righteousness. The Gentiles, who never had the Law, just put on the new clothes of Christ’s righteousness. For Christ has been raised to new life, and in Him is forgiveness, redemption, holiness, and righteousness. So those who put their trust in Christ’s finished work, they have been made complete in Christ, with His laws written in their hearts by the Holy Spirit. So under the New Covenant of God’s amazing grace, we live in the higher laws to love God and to love our neighbor by the power of the Holy Spirit within us.
In about 14 minutes into the audio, Bob asks some questions. “What is the Christian life? “Can we live the Christian life?” Not in the energy of the flesh! “What then is needed?” Bob shares from God’s word to answer these questions. The Christian life is Christ.
Classic Christianity Radio – Heirs of the Promise Part 2 (2-19-19)
Bob George first repeats a message from yesterday from the book of Ephesians that the believing Jews and Gentiles, together are heirs of the promise of God in Christ Jesus. About 14 minutes into the audio, Bob explains this New Covenant He made with man, both Jew and Gentile, from Hebrews 10. Bob begins by asking the question, “This covenant we are under, is that for us?”
Hebrews 10:11-18 (KJV) 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
