Classic Christianity – The Book of John P37 (05-01-23)
Have You Placed Faith in Jesus? Or Are You Placing Faith in ALL the Wrong Things?
~ Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I am going to the one who sent me. You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”John 7:33,34
~ On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.John 7:37-39
~ “And so then Jesus still teaching in the temple courts cried out, yes, you know, me, and you know where I’m from. I’m not here on my own, but he who has sent me is true. You do not know Him. In other words, you said you don’t know my Father. … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Christ in You Is Your Hope of Glory; No Matter What the Sin, God’s Grace is Greater; Let Us Live Under Grace Not Law
We can certainly celebrate the day of Pentecost, if we choose to do so, for that is the first time in history that Christ came to indwell men permanently. Prior to the cross, the Holy Spirit came upon people for divine service, but the Spirit could also leave because of sin. That is why David prayed for the Spirit to not depart from him after committing both adultery and murder (Psalm 51). We would not pray such a prayer today.
So, if you have committed adultery, are now divorced, and are wondering how to go on with your life, understand what God accomplished for you. So no matter what the sin, realize God’s grace is greater than all your sin. You can start living under grace and experience the best that God has for you.
2 Corinthians 5:19 God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 55 (08-06-19)
As we continue in the book of John, we come to rely on the Holy Spirit to teach us Truth. For apart from him, we can do nothing. Indeed, we cannot even understand the things of God without the Spirit of God living in us. He will guide us into all truth and lead us as we let Him. Are we listening to Him? Do we hear His voice?
Consider a tsunami that takes the lives of men. Where are the animals? Not one is recorded as being killed? Who told the animal to go to the high ground? God’s Spirit is living in us, who have believed the message of Christ, and surely His voice is stronger than the voice of instinct that He speaks to the animals! God does speak to us today.
Have you ever been prompted by the Holy Spirit to pick up the phone and call someone? The answer comes back, “How did you know to call me?” And as you hear the person on the end of the phone share her burden, God gives you words to say, truth spoken into the human heart, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 54 (08-05-19)
In the book of John, we have recorded down for us many conversations Jesus had with men as he walked this earth. He came to speak truth into the hearts of men. He performed miracles, that God wanted to do through him, in order that we might be willing to listen to the word of life he proclaimed. He spoke to Mary and Martha, whose brother Lazarus had died. Jesus told them that he is the resurrection and the life. Many Jews heard the message of truth, believed and spread the word. So many more people followed Jesus and listened to what he had to say. The religious leaders of the day, the Pharisees, who heard, were not excited about the truth, or even that Lazarus had just been raised from the dead.
Still today, there are those who would rather go after Jesus, and speak about Jesus they do not know. Where do you go to learn the truth about Jesus? From the religious leaders? There are some fine seminaries that speak the truth but how would you know the truth when you hear it? Of all the seminaries … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
