Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to base their beliefs and build their lives. The word of God declares that Jesus Christ is that foundation of truth. With that in mind, let’s now take A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ.
What we are doing in our study and if you are following along with us in your study guide under You’re a Brand New Creation on page 24, you see a passage of scripture there out of Ephesians and fifth … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P20 (04-26-22)
The Law of The Spirit of Life Sets Us Free From the Law of Sin and Death
In today’s lesson, from the Bible study booklet, A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ, available for purchase from our online Bob George Ministries ecommerce store Bob continues teaching on a very important lesson for today. It is a key understanding in the New Covenant that we live under and having a proper understanding of the keywords, For all those in Christ Jesus, we have been made holy, we have been set apart. Jesus did it all.
“You’re not self-holy and you’re not self-righteous. If you are, you’re living in what? Deluded futility of your thinking. And so we’re created now to walk now in a newness of life. Whereby, I’m walking clothed in His righteousness because of His one offering I’ve been made holy. I’ve already been set apart because of Him. I have been sanctified because of Him. I have been glorified because of Him. I have been justified in the sight of God. Everything is now mine because of Him.”

To grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, it is important that we do not rely on what a denominational persuasion says, whether Baptist, Catholic, or Presbyterian, or whatever else it might be. Nor should we rely on what the early church fathers said, what Polycarp, John Wesley or Martin Luther said. Nor do we blindly rely on People to People or whatever common ministry is out there today. If what someone says is in agreement with truth as revealed by the Spirit of God through the word of God, then certainly hold onto such truth, for that is revealed by the Spirit of God, who does not lie.
Ultimately, we need to study the word of God for ourselves, as Paul commended the people of Berea for doing, for they diligently studied the scriptures to see if what he said was so, and they only had the Old Testament scriptures available to them in their day. Now that the gift of prophecy has been given to the prophets as well as the apostles, and the divine revelation from God to men has been written down, by … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Rene from Lubbock, TX
Rene: I called for an explanation on a verse in Malachi 3:8-9. What is your take on it?
Malachi 3:8-9 8 “Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me.
“But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’
“In tithes and offerings. 9 You are under a curse – your whole nation – because you are robbing me.
Bob: What is it you do not understand about the verse? First of all, it is not speaking to you anyway. Again, take the time to read the entire passage of scripture, looking carefully to discern context. What is the setting? Are we in the Old Covenant or the New Covenant? Who is the audience? Who is the writer addressing?
Malachi 3:5 5 “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the Lord Almighty.
