Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P11 (06-16-21)
Faith is Understanding Jesus Forgave You Completely!
This New Covenant we are under today is a covenant of grace. When you think about what is the eternal inheritance that Jesus bought and secured for us, we cannot help but say, “Thank you, Jesus” and “Praise be to God for His marvelous grace.” This grace provided for us a new heart, the heart of God that is full of His love and compassion that we can access and allow to flow out of us. We have this unconditional acceptance, where we are free to fail without any condemnation, and can then boldly go to the throne of grace to instruct us, guide us into truth to correct our harmful behavior, with such tender-loving care. This is all part of this wonderful personal relationship with the living God, who rejoices over us, rejoices when we rejoice, and who delights in us. And to think that God, who created the entire vast universe with His spoken word, has such wonderful thoughts concerning me! He even knows every hair on my head.
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P23 (03-30-21)
What does God look at? Does He not look at the attitudes of the heart? Are you humble and teachable, open to listening to the living and active word of God, and allow that word to renew your mind with truth? Is there a dependence on the Holy Spirit, for Him to live His life in and through you? Or, are you leaning on your own understanding, having not known God or His ways? What is the motive of your heart? Men cannot weigh motives, but God can see right through any one of us. Do we do things to get accolades from men, to get money and power and fame? Do we do things to make a name for ourselves? Or do we do things, as Jesus did, to bring honor to the one who sent us? As Bob explains, with an illustration of the radar system navigating a pilot, are you letting the radar, who lives in you, direct your paths, and destination? Or, are you so proud that you think you can fly the plane of life without a radar? What mountains have … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Word of God P7 (02-22-21)
We are studying A Closer Look at the Word of God. If you believe the bible is true, but your only understanding is to why you believe the bible is true is because you just believe it or the pastor said it, then you are on flimsy ground. If you do not believe the bible is true, then also follow along with us on this study. Either way, you need to know why these scriptures are true. The internal testimony of the writers themselves and Jesus Christ Himself, who is God, are the only people who can effectively convince that to your heart. But the word of God is not like any other book you read for information, to get a grade to get a degree so you can get a good paying job. No, this book is read to get to know the author, the divine author, who is God.

As we grow in Christ, we start asking questions. That is what children do. But are they getting the right answers, the right nutrition to grow? It is fine if you are an infant to feed on the milk of the word, but you need to start moving on towards eating meat when the time is right. So where do you get your convictions formed? Do you believe something because your pastor says it is true or because that is what my denomination taught me since I was a child? How do you know it is true? Recall that the apostle Paul commended the people of Berea for diligently studying the scriptures to see if what he said was so.
Let us look at the teaching that is so prevalent in protestant churches about tithing being for today, and that you start giving ten percent, as so many pastors teach. Is that true for today? Where do most pastors tell you to turn to? Malachi. Have you ever read the entire chapter of Malachi 3 for yourself? Are you a descendant of Jacob? No. Then the book of Malachi is … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

What conviction do you have that the scriptures are the word of God, are inerrant, and are applicable today as it was over 2000 years ago? Are the problems of man we face today in our lives, anxiety and depression, any different than back then, since the fall of mankind? Yes, we may have advanced technology that can cause more devastating destruction, but deep down is not the root cause of all the problems of man rely inside the heart of man? Do you think that God had a solution to our problems only in today’s world through psychology or philosophy, or that we have become so sophisticated, that we can solve our problems through science and psychology and relegate God to just our initial salvation, such as a guarantee of a new life after we die, but then He just leaves us alone for us to figure out and solve our problems on our own?
So what confidence do you have that God left us His word, the scriptures, as a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Jesus also identified Himself as … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
