Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P11 (12-08-21)
The Meaning of God’s Word Must be Revealed by the Holy Spirit
There have been many teachers down through the ages that tell you they will teach you what the word of God means. Yet the truth of the matter, only the Holy Spirit can truly teach you the meaning of the word of God.
When a person has been born again of the Spirit of God, they have the Holy Spirit living in them. The Holy Spirit will reveal the meaning of things to you. If God is revealing something to you in your daily life it will always match up to the word of God. God does not contradict Himself, nor is He the author of confusion.
Yet, those that do not have the Spirit of God living in them, will find the word of God to be foolish to them. They will discount what God says and justify their own evil behavior. They refuse to place their faith in Jesus, the Word of God.
1 Corinthians 2:14 14 “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 9 However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him—
10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.
The love of God is too big to just be experienced by the eyes or ears, but it must be revealed by the Holy Spirit. It is the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. You must be born again before you can understand spiritual things. Natural man can not understand the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P649 (07-08-21)
In this world there will always be false teaching. There will be pastors of churches who do not know the Lord. There will be people who do know the Lord, but would rather rely on their intellect, their Greek, their Hebrew, their seminary, to teach the word of God. Many times people will teach whatever theology that they grew up with or came to know the Lord under. And since they are told they must go to seminary in order to preach, and so they go to seminary and there they are taught all sorts of tradition or teaching that may or may not be true. Sadly, so few people will test to see if what they heard is so, by checking the scriptures out for themselves. The whole issue of false teaching is false dependency, leaning on your own understanding rather than relying on the Holy Spirit living in you, to reveal the meaning of the word of God to you. Indeed, the whole reason the Spirit is there is to be your Counselor, to guide you into all truth, to renew your mind with truth, so you can … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P15 (06-28-21)
Have you ever pondered the sacrifice Jesus made for you? He came to this earth, demonstrated He is God by the things He said and did, and eyewitnesses, the apostles, confirmed that by writing down what they saw and heard. But the ultimate demonstration of His love is He laid down His life for us, only to be raised up to new life again, for our sake. No greater love is there than that.
Unfortunately, many people today do not understand all that Jesus did. Even people who are members of mainline denominations have not understood. Why are people still sacrificing today so as to keep in fellowship with God, to ask God to forgive them when they sin? Or to go to a priest or a confessional booth to get their sins forgiven? When Jesus shed His blood on a cross, and Jesus being God in the flesh, did His one time sacrifice on a cross take away only some sins but not all sins? John the Baptist certainly did not think so. He identified Jesus as the promised Messiah to Israel, and testified that He … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
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
