Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Jesus Christ P25 (12-07-20)
Let us now look more closely at the crucifixion, that period of time in history where Jesus died, was buried and three days later rose again. Many people focus so much on the birth of Christ, and nothing wrong with that, and we thank God for his birth. And we even have a holiday where that is the primary focus. But from God’s vantage point that is not the most important focus. God came to do something, that if we do not fully comprehend the meaning, we miss out, putting it mildly, on what we so desperately need, eternal life.
The death, burial and resurrection are the fundamental elements of the gospel, the message of good news, that Paul addressed in his letter to the Corinthians. The true dividing line of human history is the cross, dividing history from under the law, under an Old Covenant, before the cross, to being under grace, under a New Covenant with mankind, after the cross. God has established a new will, a new covenant, with man, with an eternal inheritance, to those who are in his will, and that by faith … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Jesus Christ P15 (11-04-20)
So concerning this person called Jesus of Nazareth, what have you concluded him to be? Do you think he is a madman, a lunatic, a liar or that he really is who he claimed to be, God in the flesh? What have those who walked on the earth with him, who saw him, touched him and ate with him, have to say? What did they have to say about him? Were they lunatics, liars or impostors too? Or did they believe him to be who he claimed to be, God in the flesh?
And if Jesus really is God in the flesh, then why would he want to come down and live on this rotten earth, with so much sorrow, sickness, pain and death? Why would he subject himself to such things? And why would he put on human flesh? And if He came from heaven, and he said he only says what His Father told him to say and what to say, then what words of God did he say that he wanted us to know? This must be a very important person to come from heaven … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P581 (10-22-20)
People are so filled with gratitude when they realize the truth of what salvation really is. The gospel, the message of good news that God came to bring to us through His Son, and what was accomplished through His death, burial and resurrection, continues to change lives today. People from time to time have called into the radio program, having been blessed by the truth they heard, the spiritual wisdom and knowledge of God, of the grace of God that helped them escape bondage to legalism and to grab a hold of life in Christ Jesus, which is what true living is all about.
From time to time, people, out of their own love for the Lord, will give financial or of their time and energy, so the truth of the word of God, of life in Christ Jesus, continues to go out. You may not know this, but it takes money to get this message proclaimed on radio stations. Ministries pay money to air what they want to say on a radio station so a radio station can continue to function. Of course ministries, like Bob George Ministries, are … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Jesus Christ P8 (10-20-20)
Growing in grace is growing to understand all that God has freely given you, to know the inheritance you have in Christ Jesus, and to learn to rest in Him. It is maturing in your knowledge of the grace of God that has been extended to you in Christ Jesus. It is maturing as you hit life’s problems, trials and tribulations. We have an option to either walk by faith in Jesus who said “I am the way, the truth and the life”, or to go out and try to solve them on our own.
As we learned yesterday, God is the great I Am. But knowing that God is our creator God, what does that practically mean to you and me today? Jesus explained what that meant when He identified Himself as the I Am and illustrated with additional I Am statements, amplifying in physical terms that you and I can relate to. We know what bread and water means to our physical existence. We experience light and darkness whenever day turns to night, and see the contrast as we lay our head on a pillow … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P13 (05-18-20)
It cannot be emphasized enough that your teacher is the Holy Spirit. Only the Spirit of God can reveal truth to men, and this comes when you are first born again, and then when you spend time reading God’s word in context, and when you are depending on the Holy spirit to reveal the meaning of it to you. Sadly, too often people rely on preachers, pastors, denominations, various books and any manner of techniques to accept something as truth, but it is quite often error, and rarely ever testing what is being said is true. The bible is our plumb line and the Holy Spirit is our guide into all truth.
So when you read about Jesus example of total dependence on His Father, what He is really saying to us? For example, in John 5:30 and John 14:10-11, you can read about how Jesus depended on His Father. He did only what His Father told him to do and exactly what his Father told him to say and how to say it. Bob George really wants people to grasp what he believes the Spirit … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
