A New Creature in Christ

Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 66 (09-02-19)

Synopsis

Bob George continues sharing from the 13th chapter of John. Here is Peter, like all of us, born spiritually dead, without the spirit of God living in him, living in darkness. But who is he listening to? He is listening to the Light of the world, the man sent from heaven, sent to explain spiritual truth to him. Can he understand what Jesus is saying? No. Neither could we without the Spirit of God living in us. Yet truth is being explained to him. What does he decide to do with the very words of Jesus?

When someone is born again, having the Spirit of God living in him, what is supposed to happen? There is supposed to be a change that takes place. You become a new creation, not an old one. Many times that does not happen overnight. Conversion experiences are all over the place. For some people, their behavior changes immediately. With others, that change in behavior takes a while. The issue is, if you are in Christ, then you will never be happy in your old life style. If you are, then something is wrong … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P469 (8-30-19)

Synopsis

Bob George answers questions from several callers. A common question asked by many people is, “Can I lose my salvation?” There are denominations that teach this, such as the Church of the Nazarene, but truth is not found in a denominational persuasion. Jesus came to this earth to explain truth to men. The natural man cannot understand truth, for truth must be spiritually discerned. The humble will receive truth and believe what Jesus had said. When they choose to believe truth in regards to what Christ Jesus did, through his death, burial and resurrection, they become born again that moment, have the Spirit of God placed in them, and are said to have the mind of Christ.

People can be persuasive in speech and even know a lot of scriptures but do not know the truth. That was true of the Jews in Jesus day, and they memorized much of the Old Testament, but did not recognize Jesus when he came and even sought to kill him. Men too can be liars and deceivers but also men who are simply spiritually dead like all of us once were. So they … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Prescription for Life

Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P468 (8-29-19)

Synopsis

Larry called to ask about how the Holy Spirit is received? Is it received by the laying on of hands? No, not today. In Acts, you read about that, but that was during that time period, of the apostles, whom were needed to confirm that people were born again. But also in Acts, people received the Holy Spirit without the laying on of hands. You cannot form doctrine from the book of Acts, for that is simply a record of what happened.

Bob also mentioned how Apollos became born again in Acts. He only knew about John’s baptism, a baptism of repentance. Many people who heard John the Baptist preach did not even know there is a Holy Spirit. If you do not have the Holy Spirit in you, then you do not belong to Christ. They were men knowledgeable of scripture, but had not heard. Once they heard the message concerning Christ and received the gift of life, the Spirit came to dwell in them.

That is not unlike people today who only hear half a gospel message, that Jesus died for their sins, or no gospel at all, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Salvation is Not Getting Sins Forgiven

Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 63 (08-26-19)

Synopsis

Salvation is not about how sinful we are but how dead we are. Often times, all you hear from the pulpit is how sinful you are. Yes, sin is the cause of death, but death is worse than sin. But what you often erroneously hear is to come down an altar to get your sins forgiven. Well, I got news for you. Salvation is not getting your sins forgiven, but getting new life, God’s life.

Why is salvation not getting your sins forgiven? Well, that is the preparation part of it. Jesus already died to take away the sins of the entire world. His shed blood was once and for all, never to be repeated again, and was all sufficient to take away God’s wrath against all sin, sins from all eternity, past and future, for all men! So if getting sins forgiven is salvation, then everybody is saved already, and that would be called universal salvation. But that is not salvation that saves. Salvation is receiving new life.

You must come to understand that sin is not what keeps you from God. It is your condition of death that … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
