Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P08 (03-29-22)
Understanding Your Identity as a Child of God
As we continue today, we review a bit of yesterday’s program. Listen in as Bob explains your identity as being a child of God.
Bob: Now, another thing where we use to determine our self-image is by what we do. And I believe that Satan has done a masterful job of getting people, to use the statements, I’m a, I’m a businessman. I’m a housewife. Who are you Bob? Well, I’m a housewife. I’m a, I’m a businessman. I’m a football player now. In that particular deal our self-image is therefore based upon what we do.
But I think there’s even something deeper to that because in essence, our self-image is not only based upon what we do, but it had me. It would have to be based on how well we do it. In other words, what good does it do to say well, I’m a football player? Have you ever caught a pass? No fumbled every one, every one that has been thrown to me. Have you ever thrown a strike as a pitcher? No, I’ve walked … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P07 (03-28-22)
Place Faith in Jesus and He Gives You Eternal Life
What an exciting study! This is out of our book, our Classic Christianity study series entitled, A Closer Look at your identity in Christ. Now, what does that talking about, your identity in Christ? Well, in other words, it’s answering those questions. Those age-old questions. Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? It’s, if we don’t answer those questions, we’re walking around in confusion for the rest of our lives. We don’t know who we are.
And so folks God made us to have an identity, but when God made man, he made man in such a way whereby God in the man is indispensable to the humanity of the man. You take God out of the man, and what do you have, where you’ve got a man that’s two thirds whole, as a body and a soul, but his spirit is dead? You take God out of a man, what do you have when you’ve got a man on your hands, but he can’t behave like one. He can’t function like … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

It’s in His resurrection. And again, I state what Paul stated so clearly, that without the resurrection we are still in our sins and to be pitied of all people, even though in His physical form He died for the forgiveness of sins. Had it not been for the resurrection there would have been no resurrected life available to you and me. And folks, the object of the cross, which was his death; was to be able to give us life through His resurrection. And so He said that I’m going to go away and when I do … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P43 (03-08-22)
Professers vs Possessors of Jesus Christ
Let’s continue on our journey in a Closer Look at the Reality of the Resurrection.
Bob: I think that you will probably agree that teaching through this series on A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection, is one of the most exciting series that we’ve ever done. And, the resurrection of Christ is paramount to the Christian faith. It’s a matter of fact, it is so paramount that Paul said that without the resurrection. our faith is futile. We’re to be pitied of all people because we’re still in our sins. And so the whole essence of the Christian faith rests upon, was that tomb empty? Or was it as I’ve said so many times that the tomb of Jesus is the only one that is famous for who isn’t in it. And again, we have to either explain that away or fall on our face and give our lives to it, that tomb was empty. There had to be a reason for it. That could have been a reason of course, that possibly the apostles came … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P713 (03-03-22)
Saved by the Baptism of The Holy Spirit Not Water Baptism – You Must Repent of Your Unbelief and Believe in Christ Jesus
In today’s Classic Christianity Radio program Bob discusses baptism of the Holy Spirit vs water baptism. Only baptism by the Holy Spirit, making a person born again of the Spirit, is the only way salvation takes place. Water baptism doesn’t do anything for you except get you wet.
Another caller called in about forgiveness of sins and the fellowship issue. Fellowship is always in the fellowship saved or out of the fellowship lost.
Then there was another caller that wondered about Acts 18:24-28 in regards to being saved by baptism vs baptism of the Holy Spirit and altar calls. Bob’s answer brings additional insights on to what was happening in the book of Acts at that point in time, in that some had not even heard of baptism of the Holy Spirit. They only had heard of John the Baptist, water baptism, pointing toward the One that would take away all their sins on the cross. They were unaware of the baptism of the believer by the Holy … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
