Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P726 (04-15-22)
“It is Finished!” Confess: Agree With God That Your Sins Are Forgiven!
Do we really believe in what Jesus did on the cross, when He cried out, “It is Finished!”? Or do we simply give lip service to His statement? Jesus forgave you for all of your sins on the cross. That does not mean everyone is saved. Reminder, salvation is life. It is His life coming into you when you place faith in Him and what He did for you. Now we say, “Thank you Jesus” as a confession of our faith. We thank Him for the forgiveness He did on the cross for us. Today we can boldly proclaim, “Behold the Lamb of God who TOOK AWAY the sins of the world!” Do you believe it? Do you really believe in Him? Which side of the cross do we live on today?
The first caller was Eddie from Harlingen, Texas. His question was in regards to visions, and wondered if visions were for today. The topic then went into prophecy too.

Walking in Our Dependency of Love – Jesus is Love
Matthew called in regards to a question he had about Love in the bible study booklet “A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ.”
Bob mentions that once we understand the love of God for us, then we begin to have that same love for others. It’s a process though and a renewing of our mind by Him doing it in and through us.
Understanding the Love of God
It’s the love of God,
that results in the dependency upon God,
that then results in the obedience to God.
Romans 8:38,39 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John the second caller called from Atlanta, Georgia. He wanted to know about finances and job hunting.
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P7 (11-30-21)
What is the Meaning of the Resurrection?
Many times a person will tell you that the meaning of Jesus’ death on the cross was for forgiveness, but when you ask a person the meaning of the resurrection of Jesus, they are likely to give you a blank look on their face. They may say that was what verified that He died on the cross for our sins, yet they don’t have a clue what His resurrection life is all about.
Salvation is life. And, if indeed Christ is not raised from the dead, then our faith is worthless. The resurrection is key for LIFE. The death of Jesus did not provide life. Jesus death provided forgiveness but the resurrected life brings life to you and me through faith in Him.
1 Corinthians 15:17 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.
Hebrews 10:17 17 Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.”
Romans 5:10 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Finality of The Cross P19 (09-20-21)
By the Spirit, Study the Word to Know the Truth About Forgiveness and Salvation
There is a lot of misunderstanding of the finality of the cross in the world of Christendom today. When you know the truth from the Word of God, then whatever error is out there can easily be spotted. When Jesus said, “It is finished” when dying on a cross, what did He mean?
John 19:30 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.
What is finished? What was accomplished when Jesus died on a cross? And, was His death all that was necessary for man to be saved? To be saved means to be saved from death by being made alive in Christ. Death is an eternal separation from God. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P23 (07-14-21)
It is so important to understand what God Himself says is the gospel that saves. In 1 Corinthians 15, we read that it is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Nothing else. There is no baptism, church attendance, speaking in tongues, going to a confessional booth, seven sacraments, quoting 1 John 1:9 to keep yourself in fellowship, saved. Those latter things are things taught by the traditions of men. The word of God does not say such things. Your confidence in the gospel must be in what God Himself says it is, and that you have allowed the Holy spirit to reveal that truth to you. Your confidence must not be in the denominational persuasions of men, or what any pastor, priest or man says, for they could be teaching error.
So what did Jesus accomplish by his death on a cross? What did Jesus say after he gave up his spirit, after shedding his blood on a cross? It is finished. What is finished? Did not the author of Hebrews tell us that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin? Yes, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
