Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P26 (01-26-22)
We Have a New Identity in Christ When We are Saved
As a reminder to all our radio and online listeners, we are listening to edited legacy programs brought to you by Bob George Ministries. In order to bring these programs to you we sometimes need to repeat some of the previous program in order for us to bring you the entirety of the original program as to the best of our abilities and fit it in to the half hour format version we are in right now. We feel it is more important for you to hear the entirety of the original radio show (over a course of either two or three days) and in the original context as much as possible, as opposed to cutting off or dicing them up between the original broadcasts. So with that in mind, we review a little of yesterday’s lessen.

We encourage you to join along as Bob teaches from the word of God. Listen in and follow along.
So let’s pick up with our study and review some of the things we have learned. Jesus has made us a brand new creation. The Apostle Paul explains in 2 Corinthians 5:17 the new creation has come if anyone is in Christ Jesus. The old has gone and the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
And furthermore Paul writes in Galatians 2:20 that I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. Paul is telling us that the old Paul no longer lives, but Christ lives in me. So his … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P22 (07-13-21)
Where is your confidence placed? Is it placed in our possessions? They could all be burned up in a fire. It could be here today and gone tomorrow. In your job? You could be fired tomorrow? You could be replaced by a smarter, younger employee, or a dictator could come to power and take all your land away. So what is the power of confidence we have who are in Christ Jesus?
Hebrews 10:32-39 32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34 You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. 37. For,
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P13 (06-22-21)
I had a conversation with a relative in regard to why Jesus had to die. Her answer was something like, “If such and such did not happen, He would still be alive today.” I think she did not understand what Jesus came to do for us.
John 10:17-18 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life – only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
When you ponder over that, you realize there was a plan in the heart of God from the beginning, even before the foundation of the world, to rescue mankind from the fall in the garden of Eden. The entire Old Testament was planned out by God so that man might recognize his condition of spiritual death, that sin caused your death and therefore you are in need of life. The entire New Testament was planned out by God so man can … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P45 (05-19-21)
As we are looking at the application of the word of God in our lives, we ask ourselves, “How do we do this?” Do we obey because it is a command of God, and therefore, we must do it? If the law says, do not steal, then should I not steal? The law is holy, righteous and good, but there is a deeper problem in the heart of man. If we try to live the Christian life that way, that would be putting ourselves back under a law that the Jews lived under in an Old Covenant system, and the entire Old Testament is a history of their failure, yet also of God’s faithfulness. Such a system says that you are cursed if you do not continue to do everything written in the law. The law, and what Jesus explains concerning the law, buries us, showing us our unrighteousness that we might see our need of a Saviour and look for Him to save us from ourselves, our condition of death.
