Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 24 (05-22-19)
Bob George shares from John 5, on the testimony of the Father concerning Jesus. Bob emphasized the life of the Holy Spirit living in a person, producing the fruit of the Spirit. That ultimately is the work Jesus came to do. One characteristic of the Spirit is love (Galatians 5:22-23). Then he shares from 1 Corinthians 13, explaining how Jesus came to expose the pride in man, that he may humble himself, recognize his state of spiritual death, and come to walk in the newness of life, with the Spirit of God living in him. The opposite of love is not hate, but pride. As a born again person, Jesus is showing us today how to live in dependence on the Holy Spirit of God. He is the vine and we are the branches. We love because he first loved us. Allow the love of he Holy Spirit to be produced in you and through you.

Bob explains the meaning of being filled with the Spirit, to be controlled by the love of God. Bob shared how the scriptures interpret itself, revealing the meaning from context. By looking at Ephesians 3 helps you better understand Ephesians 5. So too with all of the scriptures. Look at key phrases such as “so that” or “therefore”, and look more closely what follows or why it is there for. By learning to ask the right questions and then pondering over the scriptures for the answer is helpful to discern the meaning of God’s word. But widen the amount of scriptures you read. Read entire passages for a wider context while asking the Spirit to reveal truth to you. The wisdom of men is foolishness to God. We need the power of God to grasp truth. We need to renew our minds, pushing out the psychological, religious, and philosophical garbage out. We need error replaced with truth. So let us look to the Spirit to reveal truth to us through His word and allow Him to show us a better way. This is the better way; the way of love, His … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Bob shares a message on what it means to be controlled by the Spirit of God, or to be filled with the Spirit of God. Bob explains how man has so much error in his thinking and such error has to replaced with truth. Many churches encourage the memorization of scriptures and that could be good or bad. The same scripture can be used to help or hurt people. If one does not understand the meaning of the word of God, not understanding the context in which the scripture was written, then the same scripture can be used to confuse or even hurt people. To make his point clear, Bob cites the example of Satan trying to tempt Jesus in the wilderness by quoting scripture out of context. And how many ways are people confused on what it means to be filled with the Spirit. Bob cites examples of holy laughter, being slain in the Spirit, or being filled a second time, as examples of erroneous teaching. Bob explains what being filled with the Spirit means by looking at the broader context of the book of Ephesians. Ephesians 3, for example, … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
