Faith is From Beginning to Last, Faith is the Starting Point That Never Ends
~ When Jesus walked upon the earth, he was God in flesh, teaching people the truth of the word of God. Jesus taught under the old covenant. It’s very important to understand that. When Jesus taught, he had not gone to the cross yet, for the sins of the whole world. He was headed to the cross, but it had not happened. And once the death of Jesus happened on the cross, that is what implemented the NEW COVENANT.
Now when Jesus was teaching, he was teaching under the LAW of God. He showed everyone how stringent the law was. Some people foolishly thought they were obeying the law, but they were nothing more than hypocrites pretending they were obeying the law. For God looks at the heart. And Jesus explained the details of that. He said, if you get angry with someone, you have already committed murder in your heart. If you look at another person lustfully, you have already committed adultery in your heart.

The Perfect Love of Jesus Casts Away ALL Fear
~ There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
~ It’s so important for us to remember that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. No one gets out of this world in their body of flesh that they were first born into. The child of God has a much better hope waiting for them, a new body that will never see sickness or decay. That is something all of us in Christ Jesus have to look forward to.
~ “For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

We Walk in The New Covenant Today, Not The Old
~ “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16
~ It is so important for us to understand the New Covenant that we live under today. For there are those out there that are still trying to live under the Old Covenant, as though that is in affect today. While all scripture (old and new) is given by inspiration of God, yet it is extremely important that we understand the context of all of God’s word. For example, understanding that for a person trying to live under the 10 Commandments, God is looking at the heart. No one ever lived a perfect life (other than Jesus), never breaking the 10 commandments. And Jesus gave examples of how God looks at the heart, and how everyone breaks the 10 commandments. This is why we need Jesus for our righteousness.
~ “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Walking in The Fullness of God’s Grace
~ “The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not remain faithful to my covenant, and I turned away from them, declares the Lord. This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put My laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, `Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” Hebrews 8:8b-12
~ Caller: “Hey, a little quick background on me. Before I get to my question, I started listening to you back in 1993. And before that, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P12 (10-12-22)
How Can We Be Righteous Before God? Only By Faith in Jesus, the One Who is Righteous.
~ “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 6:21-23
~ “And God says, Wait a minute, you missed the purpose. I showed you these things in order to show you your total inability to ever live up to that law. And also to tell you very clearly, that even if you did, you’d never be declared righteous in my sight through obedience to the law, that righteousness is going to have to be imputed to you declared to you.
Now it says in verse 21, but now a righteousness from God, apart from the law has been made known to which the law and the prophets testify. So it’s saying, wait a minute, if I cannot be declared righteous in His … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
