Classic Christianity – The Book of John P50 (05-30-23)
Jesus Is The Resurrection
~ Jesus is our Resurrection! When you place faith in Jesus, he raises you immediately from the dead spiritually. On this side of the cross, you become born again of the Spirit of God. His Spirit, gives life to you that is eternal. Jesus provided a physical example of a spiritual truth. Even though we die (sleep in Christ Jesus) we live eternally with him forever. Someday we receive a new body that is waiting for us. For flesh and blood cannot enter the Kingdom of God.
~ “Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
“Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.” John 11:23-27

Jesus Said, I AM The Gate and Narrow is the Way!
~ There is only one way to God and that is through Jesus, the gate for the sheep. If you are trying to get in by jumping over the gate, or climbing over it, the word of God calls people like this thieves and robbers. Jesus is of no value to a person like that. They think they can do it on their own and by their own standards.
~ Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.John 10:7-10

Jesus Wants to Open up the Eyes of the Blind and Make Blind Those That Think They Can See
~ The self righteous person manifests itself in numerous ways today. Many get angry as hornets when you tell them that trying to obey the law will not save them, nor is God pleased with their self efforts. Others think that they are better than someone else, because they never physically murdered anyone, or committed adultery. But God is looking at the heart. Additionally, the child of God who abides in the Holy Spirit will face all types of name calling under the sun. As you learn more about the truth of this world, and see the lies all around us, people will call you crazy, or kick you out of their fellowship group because they will consider you very strange. Do not be surprised that the self righteous think themselves better than they ought, for that also happened when Jesus walked on earth himself. There is only one type of righteousness that is important to God, and that is the righteousness of Jesus himself. So judge yourself, are you standing in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

A Righteousness From God
And so the law has no purpose without the punishment for the violation. When a criminal is convicted and put into prison and punished, the law is upheld. If a prisoner is convicted of a crime and let go free, the law is not upheld. You’re not upholding the law. The only thing that upholds the law is where the punishment is executed, that is commensurate with the crime.
So Christ in the preaching of grace, of the grace of God, whereby Christ paid that price, not with some lamb out there, not the blood of bulls and goats, but Christ was the only time in all of history, where the law was not only fulfilled by his life, but it was upheld by his death. Because he who knew no sin became sin for us and the one who deserved, no death took death for us, thus paying the price and the penalty for what we deserve to have taking it upon himself, and thus upholding the law that says, that the wages of sin, the violation of law, the violation … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Allow the Holy Spirit to Teach You
If you have the Holy Spirit of God, alive living in you, then you have the ability to understand all truth. The Holy Spirit is our teacher today. Yes, man can help guide you, and the church has been given teachers, but don’t place your faith in what a man says. He could be lying to you or teaching you error knowingly or unknowingly. We are told, that those in Christ Jesus have the mind of Christ living in them.
So as you go along in the bible study guides, allow the Spirit of God to renew your mind in truth. Don’t rush through them, it is not a race to see how many questions you can answer, but they are designed to walk you through the word of God in context. The questions are in the context of the subject matter, and so they are to be thought about in the context of the New Covenant that we now are under.
