Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P19 (01-11-22)
Allow the Holy Spirit to Teach You
If you have the Holy Spirit of God, alive living in you, then you have the ability to understand all truth. The Holy Spirit is our teacher today. Yes, man can help guide you, and the church has been given teachers, but don’t place your faith in what a man says. He could be lying to you or teaching you error knowingly or unknowingly. We are told, that those in Christ Jesus have the mind of Christ living in them.
So as you go along in the bible study guides, allow the Spirit of God to renew your mind in truth. Don’t rush through them, it is not a race to see how many questions you can answer, but they are designed to walk you through the word of God in context. The questions are in the context of the subject matter, and so they are to be thought about in the context of the New Covenant that we now are under.

We Live by Faith Not by Sight
The way we live the Christian life is by faith, not sight. Most all believers look forward to being at home with Jesus, but while we are here, God has a mission for us. He has given us a ministry of the Holy Spirit for each of us. Now that ministry of the Holy Spirit is not doing things in the flesh. The flesh is that which rears it’s ugly head from time to time, and we think we are doing something good based on our own understanding of things. Or, that which makes us really feel good inside (because it is something “we” ourselves are doing), yet it may not be something the Holy Spirit would have you do.
Understanding our rewards given to believers is based on what we have allowed the Holy Spirit to do in and through us. Giving a cup of water. Or sharing a word of God to a person hurting. Comforting a stranger with a kind word. The things that as we are led by the Holy Spirit to do will stand … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

You Are A Brand New Creation- Be Taught by The Holy Spirit of God
Pastors and teachers are God’s gift to the body of Christ. However, don’t rely solely on them to teach truth to you. They can be helpful to you to understand God’s word, but don’t depend on them to be infallible in their teachings. Any pastor or teacher could be lying to you or teaching things that are not true. That is why we need to depend on the Holy Spirit to teach us all truth and check out things with the word of God.
John 14:26 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
Throughout church history, there have been many hindrances to the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ. An obvious one of these are other religious systems, like humanism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and we could go on naming them. But there is one that is the most prominent of all, and that is legalism. Legalism turns … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P623 (04-08-21)
People call in to get advice and help on various topics, such as personal struggles with temptation or clarification on understanding scriptures, particularly those passages in the gospels that apply only to the Jewish people who were living under an Old Covenant. So Bob explains what the New Covenant we live under today is.
Jesus used the law to bury people under the law so they can see their need for a Savior. Until the work was finished, Jesus taught about the New Covenant to come, and he told his disciples to wait in Galilee for the promised Holy Spirit. And when the Holy Spirit comes into a person, a person becomes born again, the Spirit remains forever. That is what happened to the disciples on the day of Pentecost, the first time in history people were born again.
The Holy Spirit is what changes lives. The disciples could not really understand what Jesus was saying to them, but now with the Holy Spirit living in them, they now have new revelation. The Spirit lived in them and changed them from fearful men, hiding in fear of the Jewish leaders, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P2 (10-22-19)
Bob George now starts in the book of Romans, after providing some introductory background on the life of Paul. Through just the first seven verses of Romans, Bob explains the meaning of words, such as sin, forgiveness, sanctified (set apart), slave, ambassador, saint, truth, gospel, obedience and faith, that we often take for granted, and such words are often not properly understood. The Greek language provides a more precise rendering that helps our understanding in some cases.
The gospel is the message of good news of Jesus Christ and Paul is called as an ambassador of Jesus Christ to bring this good news and explain it to the Gentile world. Ambassador is not a short term function he is assigned to do. He is called as an ambassador, as an identification or designation. It is like the word forgiveness. It not something we get but something we already have. An ambassador for God is one who represents God in a foreign country, the place on earth, to proclaim truth.
