Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P26 (11-15-22)
God Redeemed Us Back to Himself Through Jesus Christ
~ “There’s a world of difference between covering your garbage and having it taken away. It’s a world of difference to those two. And so these people were in a holding pattern. It was called Paradise. Paradise had changed three different times, first of all, is in the Garden of Eden, then it was a place called some place in the lower regions of the earth. And then Jesus led captive captive after he went into Paradise, and announced that it has finished and he led them captive captive. It says he led them into the presence of God. Why? Well, it’s all finished now. So in other In other words, Jesus took away the sins of the entire world back to Adam, as well as forward to eternity. That’s a pretty good, that’s a pretty good slice of people. Yeah. And so we have to realize that that that was that was an act that was done by God. It couldn’t be done by another man. A man can’t pay a ransom for a man only God can … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

God Uses Our Uniqueness For His Good Purposes
~ “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”Isaiah 1:18
~ “And you see what, when you get out of the uniqueness of God, Satan doesn’t want uniqueness. He wants conformity, conformity, and always so that all men are conforming to his ways. So he’s looking for a bunch of tin soldiers that can march to his tune, he is not looking for independent thing. He’s, when I say independent thinking, I’m talking about independent from the world dependent thinking upon God, he isn’t looking for that. Because you see, when you come to God, you don’t have independent thinking, you have God’s mind. And you have the ability to think dependently upon what God has to say. Now, that is what makes you independent, not from God, but independent from the world, right. And so we’ve gotten all of these things where everyone’s trying to make everyone exactly alike. Some people are … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P50 (07-05-22)
If You Are in Christ, Offer Your Body as a Living Sacrifice
We need to be often reminded, that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. If a person is in Christ Jesus, and Christ is in you, we are told that we are the temple of God. As such, we are to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, that is holy and acceptable to God not based on what we do or what we don’t do, but because God has made us that way. He has made our bodies holy and blameless in His sight.
Romans 12:1 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Rest From Our Works
So many times, whether lost or saved, people get of the mindset, that they need to work for God. For the lost person, it is simply part of who they are. They are out there trying to perform for God in order for God to do something for them. But the Christian is in a similar mindset also. Especially in light of all the teaching of error that is going on in the pulpit today. However, we are told to enter into the Sabbath Rest. And that is what the book of Hebrews talks about.
Hebrews 4:9-11 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. 9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.

If You Are in Christ Jesus He Has Made You a Son of God Forever
It is so important to understand our identity and the completeness of our identity in Christ Jesus. God makes us a son of God when we receive Him by faith. He will never leave us nor forsake us, nor will he ever not call us a son.
Don’t let Satan put the lie in your head that somehow, by something you do or don’t do, that God is going to disown you. Remember this, if you go into the pigsty, God is right there with you.
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles. With more false teaching, shifting opinions and general confusion in the world than ever before, Christians need a solid foundation upon which to … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
