Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P38 (02-23-22)
What God did you respond to folks? The god who rewards the righteous or the GOD Who Justifies the Wicked?
We will review a bit of yesterday’s program and then continue on with taking A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection with that same lesson. The importance of this message can not be overstated. God is the one that justifies the wicked. He doesn’t reward the righteous, for there aren’t any. The sooner we understand that, the sooner we come to the end of ourselves and the sooner we can share the full truth of the gospel with others.
Now, is that good news, or is that bad news? Well to the self-righteous, I don’t like that because I want to make myself holy. And so we walk around and think we’re going to make ourselves holy, by what we wear, the length of our hair, what we wear to compare all to everything else. You just go right down the line as to the mindset of the person who thinks they’re going to make themselves holy. But what they do instead of recognizing … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Jesus is God Who Justifies the Wicked
Let’s continue on with Taking a Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection.
Romans 4:5 5 However, to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness.
Last week, I think at least to me, was one of the most important lessons that we’ve ever done since I’ve been a Christian. And as I think back on that and again, to see the unbelievable importance of the communication to people that there is either a God that is the true God that has been revealed to us in the scripture or there are god’s we just make up in our own minds. And it’s vitally important to know which one we have responded to. As we said last week, we talked through the book of Romans in the passages of Romans, where it is talking about the fact that to the man who does not work, but trusts the God, who justifies the wicked, his faith is credited to him as righteousness.

The Holy Spirit Gives Us Eternal Life
Today we are going to review a number of things that Bob has been teaching. Listen in as he reviews key points. It is good to go over these things and cement them in our memory banks. Listen as Bob teaches through A Closer Look at The Reality of the Resurrection. Pick up all our Closer Look Bible studies from our online store at www.Shop.BobGeorge.net.
Righteousness is a gift from God. Jesus gives us His life and His righteousness when we place faith in Him. Jesus says we must be perfect. And the religious people are out there trying to make themselves perfect which is an impossibility. On the other hand, the person that comes to the end of themselves, and realizes they can not be perfect in the sight of God based on what they do or don’t do, then God says, “you’re right.” The person thinking they can keep the law is filled with pride of self while the other one is humbled by realizing they could not do it. So Jesus has done it … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

The Problem of Man and the Solution In Christ Jesus
Many people said that they know someone who is going to heaven. When you ask him to explain, they say because he is a good person or nice or something like that. I used to hear people say that Catholics are Christian too. Now, I hear people say that Mormons are Christians too. Nowadays, you even have these inter-faith movements, a uniting of Muslims with Christianity, called Chrislam, as if they worship the same God. You are not a Christian, or a born again person, a child of God, by going to a certain denomination or even going through all the traditions of men established by that denomination (John 1:11-13).
John 1:11-13 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
So when you become born again, what is your identity? Are you a Baptist, a Presbyterian, or whatever title you choose to associate with? No. The bible only gives you one identity, a child of God. Denominations teach you denominational persuasions of men. It might be true. It might not be true. How do you know that what people are teaching you is true? By the word of God you hold in your hands, and by the Spirit of God, living in you, who has promised to guide you into all truth. Do you test whatever any man says is true? Do you test what is being said by looking into God’s word, asking the Holy Spirit to reveal truth to you? That is what the apostle Paul commended the Bereans for doing. We also have the exhortation to study the word so as to rightly divide the word of God. We are instructed to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
Did you know that we are also a part of the body of Christ? So what is the purpose of the body? Are we not to encourage one another … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
