Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P10 (06-15-21)
Faith is Walking in Truth!
God has given us very great and precious promises so that we may participate in the divine nature. This was made possible by the New Covenant, that those who come to faith in what Jesus alone accomplished through His death, burial and resurrection, are now under and have received, which is Christ Himself, alive living in you. In Christ, we have been given a new heart, with unconditional acceptance, a personal relationship with God, and being made a forgiven person forever.
Just as there is nothing you can do to earn salvation, there is nothing you can do to lose salvation. There are no conditions put on you for God to accept you. The scripture simply says you are accepted in the beloved. Jesus took away the sins of the world, never to be seen again by God. Sin is what caused our death, and there is no forgiveness of sins without the shedding of blood. Jesus shed His blood once and for all, so Jesus is not going to shed His blood again on a cross. Therefore, there is no more … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P9 (06-14-21)
As you read the book of Hebrews, you will come to understand the New Covenant we are under today, with so many precious promises for us. The writer of Hebrews contrasts this covenant with the Old Covenant that it replaced. The Old Covenant was conditional in nature, and was to the people of Israel, that if they could keep all the requirements of the law, the law of Moses, with all its ten commandments and regulations, God would be their God and they would be His people. But man could not keep that, and neither could you and I today, who think we can do better in obeying the ten commandments of Moses, and come up with our own religious system that we might approach God.
So to understand the need of the New Covenant, you have to understand the problem of all mankind. You have to understand what caused our death, and that there is only one solution to death and that is life, but not a temporal life, but eternal life. That life is a life that God intended for mankind to have when He … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

A very common misunderstanding is the concept of confession and repentance of sin. A lot of erroneous thinking comes from denominational influences. Many of us grew up in a Catholic or a Protestant type of church, so you probably have heard people say you need to confess your sins to a priest or to God. But very few people have really checked into the word of God to see if what is being said is true or not. Take a look at what Jesus said prior to His ascension back to heaven while he walked on this earth for some forty days. He said He came to prove the world wrong about what they think sin is, of what people think they need to repent of.
John 16:7-11 7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because

What are those better promises under a New Covenant? First of all, it does not depend on us to keep it. Under an Old Covenant, if you failed but once, you are guilty of breaking all of the law, and are under a curse. For scripture tells us that cursed is everyone who does not continue to do all that is written in the book of the law. Under a New Covenant, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Second, God has given you everything you need for life and godliness. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He lives in you to instruct you and guide you into all truth. He loves and accepts you unconditionally. Then on that special day, when you shall leave this earth, you will see Him face to face. You will be changed in a twinkling of an eye, for you shall see Him as He really is.
Jesus is the guarantee of a promised eternal inheritance stored up in heaven for you, where moth and rust do not destroy. How can He guarantee this, this … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Are you competent as a minister of the New Covenant? Do you know what the New Covenant is, and can you explain that to someone else? That is so important to know and Paul instructed Timothy in this way.
2 Timothy 4:1-3 1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
But if you are going to preach the word, are you commingling law and grace or are you teaching the New Covenant, which the Lord says you have to be made competent as a minister of the New Covenant, a covenant that replaced the old one?
