Classic Christianity – Thanksgiving Part 5 (11-29-19)
As the Thanksgiving season is here, consider how much we have been freely given. If you are in Christ, you are free. You are free from the law. You are no longer under the law of sin and death, the law with it’s demands that you could never keep. Sin was your master and owner. In Christ, you are no longer a prisoner of the law. You were once locked up until faith should be revealed. Has faith been revealed to you? Can you now call God your Father because you have become a child of God, a new creation in Christ?
Even before the law was given, sin was in the world. All of us were born dead spiritually. The law was powerless to save you nor could it. We were already weak in our natural selves, being dead already. We keep doing what we know we ought not do and we do not do what we know we should. And when we fail, there is guilt under the law. Then why was the law given? The law was added so that man may see his condition of spiritual death and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P484 (10-18-19)
Bob George received calls for help from people in their every day life struggles. One person, Mary, called for help in regards to a struggle with her husband who is in and out of work. Another lady, Denise, called on behalf of young children, who are caught up in an unhealthy environment where improper sexual relations among adults has occurred, who were apparently flaunting that behavior, or were certainly having no remorse or even recognizing such behavior as sin.
Bob George, during his time on earth, established a counseling ministry, which allowed Bob to offer help to people who call in on his radio program with specific problems to receive help. It is evident to me, as an outward observer, listening to Bob on recorded messages or from the testimonies of others, is the great love Bob showed to hurting people. He made himself available, and even went out of his way to provide help for hurting people. If he cannot discern how best to help, such as due to limited time on a call-in program like this and with insufficient information of their circumstances, he would connect people with … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 51 (07-29-19)
Bob shares from the book of John where Lazarus had died. Jesus meets Mary and Martha. Martha tells Jesus, “If you had only been here, my brother would not have died. But even now, I know that whatever you ask will be done.” Here we come to see more about the person of Jesus. When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. Jesus is a real person with a heart. Jesus, being God in the flesh, was at His Father’s side, creating all that exists, the world we see and all of mankind. Mankind was designed to be created with the Spirit of God living in him. Here he is among his own creation. Imagine God weeping at the fall of man, seeing what was intended in his creation, knowing how man was designed to function, destroyed in a moment by the cunning of Satan, once known as Lucifer, a fallen angel, who has become the father of lies and has deceived man and has him bound in sin and death. That is why … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P454 (7-11-19)
These callers called in to the original People to People radio program Bob George was on for over 30 years. Most of the questions were to get clarification of truth on some commonly misunderstood passages of scripture. Laurie asked, “Where do you place Melchizedek in Hebrews 6:16?” Oftentimes by simply reading the verses before and after a scripture that is unclear to you, you can discern what is important to understand in a passage. We often want to focus on a very narrow point rather than get the spiritual truth that Jesus wants you to know. Bob emphasized that Hebrews is about explaining the superiority of Jesus Christ. To the Jew, there is no one greater than Abraham. Hebrews clears this matter up by explaining that Melchizedek is greater than Abraham and Jesus is greater than everyone.
Edwin asked a very common question, typical of those who are new believers or those improperly instructed from religious teaching. He asked what is the difference between baptism of water and baptism of the Holy Spirit. By studying the scriptures the answer is very clear. John the Baptist even spoke of two baptisms in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 44 (07-10-19)
As we have been studying through the gospel of John, it becomes more apparent what Jesus Christ came to accomplish on our behalf. In order for him to accomplish these things, we had to understand who he is, God. He first came to this earth to declare this. He came first of all to the Jews, who had their religion and traditions to lean upon on to explain this. He came to explain that it is not religion or tradition that saves you, but a person. He is not just a figure we study in the bible. Jesus is the one who came to save you. Sometimes we miss not only the reality of who he is, God, but where he is. The fact is that Jesus lives in us and he lives in us with the purpose to teach us truth. That truth will set us free.
John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
What are the enemies to truth? Lies. The opposite of truth are lies. Where do we get lies from? From the enemy of our souls, the one who did … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
