Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P14 (10-18-22)
There is More Than One Type of Death in the Bible. The Law Produces Death in Me. Jesus Brings Life to The Dead.
~ “I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death.” Romans 7:10
~ So what does that mean? “You see, you can’t serve two masters, you can’t serve the risen Christ and the law at the same time, because you’re serving one thing that produces death, and another produces life. So which one are you going to serve and if I start serving the other, I’m dead. When I serve the other, I’m alive. You can’t serve two masters. That’s what quite frankly, this scripture talking about that a double minded man is unstable in all ways. That is a man who has got one foot in the law and one foot in the grace of God. It is the condition of the Galatians, the Galatianism, you foolish, idiotic Galatians, who has hypnotized you cast an evil spell upon you? And he asked them the question, Did you receive the Spirit of God by obedience to the law, or … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Law & Grace P13 (10-17-22)
How Am I Going to Be Righteous in The Sight of God? Only Through Faith in Jesus.
~ “We know that whatever the law says, and all of course, all of this teaching in this particular lesson is what is the purpose of the law? In other words, why did God give us the law? Well, it says, Well, you know, that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced, and the whole world held accountable to God. So if you want to be under the law, you’re going to have to be accountable to God, not to one another, but accountable to God, and what the accountability to God is, have you violated the least of these my commandments in your entire lifetime? Because if you have, you’d better hope you’re not under the law, because the wages of sin is death. And it says, later on, you’re under a curse. But he’s saying this, folks, to those of you who are under the law, you’ve been taught under the law, you’re under legalism. You … 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
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P48 (06-29-22)
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
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P47 (06-28-22)
Realize You Are Reconciled and Forgiven By God – Rest in It – Tell God, Thank You!
So many times we fail to understand everything we have been given in Christ Jesus. So many Christians are still babies in Christ Jesus. Even though they may have been a Christian for years, they still have not grown to maturity. Hebrews 6:1 tells us to go on to maturity.
Hebrews 6:1 1 Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God,
