Classic Christianity – Law & Thanksgiving Message Part 3 (11-25-22)
Become Dead to the Law and Alive to Christ
~ “Let’s pray together. Father, you’ve told us to give thanks in all sayings. For this truly is the will of God concerning you in Christ Jesus. To thank Him in all things to be anxious for nothing but in all things with prayer and supplication and thanksgiving, let your requests be known under God. And then the peace of God that passes all understanding will quieten your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. So many times we have that tendency to worry, in fact, we feel guilty if we’re not worrying. God says worry is not faith. Worry about your kids. That’s rightfully so we have a role to protect them. And then a final analysis, we have to turn them over to the Lord. They’re his, not mine. I’m given them a short period of time to try to teach them and discipline them. But in the final analysis, they belong to you. And it’s the same with all people. Maybe that’s why you said in your word to lead a quiet life and tend to your own … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Law & Thanksgiving Message Part 2 (11-24-22)
Are You Playing Religion Under Law? Or Are You Living in Christ Jesus Under Grace?
~ “There’s no spiritual life over here. I mean, you can play church, don’t get me wrong. You can play church, you can dress up and go to church every Sunday. You can you can give tithes offerings. You can play religion. In fact, that’s what Satan gets you to do. Satan says, I sure the heck I’m not gonna teach you that you’re dead and there’s spiritual life available to you. So I’ll teach you how to be religious. Teach how to go to church, teach how to dress up and look good. Teach you how to lie spiritually. I can teach you how to evangelize, I can teach you anything. You can be taught anything, but you’re dead. It’s not the case of how bad you are, or how good you are. It’s how dead you are. It’s all through the script, the wages of sin is what? death. Sin shall not be your master, which means when you’re under the last sin as your master, he’s your owner. You’re just like a … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Thanksgiving Part 5 (11-26-21)
Give Thanks, Your Sins Have Been Forgiven
As the Thanksgiving season is here, consider how much we have been freely given. If you are in Christ, you are free. You are free from the law. You are no longer under the law of sin and death, the law with it’s demands that you could never keep. Sin was your master and owner. In Christ, you are no longer a prisoner of the law. You were once locked up until faith should be revealed. Has faith been revealed to you? Can you now call God your Father because you have become a child of God, a new creation in Christ?
Even before the law was given, sin was in the world. All of us were born dead spiritually. The law was powerless to save you nor could it. We were already weak in our natural selves, being dead already. We keep doing what we know we ought not do and we do not do what we know we should. And when we fail, there is guilt under the law. Then why was the law given? The law was added so that man may see … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P651 (07-15-21)
Have you ever had someone tell you that you need to eat certain foods or worship on a certain day of the week? What do you say in response? Does not scripture say to not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink or in regard to a religious holiday or even a Sabbath? Yes. As you read scripture, you will be able to understand that you live under grace today. That Jesus set aside the Old Covenant to establish a New Covenant so that we can rest from our works just as He did from His.
What does that mean? If you are still trying to keep the law, then you are not resting from your works. He has put the law aside so that we can walk in the newness of life. There is no rest under the law. You are constantly being demanded to do what you cannot accomplish in the energy of your own flesh. So the Sabbath is a place of rest. It is not a day of the week. Would you hate to think that the only day of the week you … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The New Covenant P19 (07-06-21)
Faith is one of those words used or heard but do we know what it means? Hebrews 11 defines faith as confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This “hope for” is not a “hope so”, but a firm trust in what God has guaranteed us in His Son. We put our trust in what God accomplished for us in Christ Jesus, in what his death, burial and resurrection accomplished for us.
But not everyone has heard or understood what Jesus accomplished for us. You can know that Jesus is God, and that he lived, died and did certain marvelous things, but you have not put your faith in what He has given you, which is eternal life. I once was asked, “Would you like to be saved?”. I had never heard such a strange question before. “Saved from what?” I knew about Jesus dying on a cross. You see a picture of that in the church I grew up in all the time. And I knew something about Jesus rising from the dead. You at least hear about that … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
