Classic Christianity – The Book of John P03 (02-08-23)
The Word, Jesus Became Flesh
~ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

We Are Under the NEW Covenant of Grace Not the Old Covenant of the Law
~ “For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.”Hebrews 9:15
~ Thank God, He is NOT counting my sins against me!
~ “And we’re told in Hebrews. Let me just read, it’s hard to read when you’re in the wrong chapter, Hebrews 9:15, do you want to turn to it. For this reason He is the mediator of a New Covenant in order that since a death had taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of in eternal inheritance. For where a covenant is, there must of necessity be the death of the one who made it. So what did Jesus have to do before he got usher in a New Covenant, a new agreement between God and man. Had to die. And when he … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

The Holy Spirit Reveals the Meaning of the Word of God
~ “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for teaching [doctrine], for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”2 Timothy 3:16
~ It’s so vitally important for us to understand that without the Holy Spirit of God living in us, we cannot understand the meaning of the Word of God.
~ “But what it means has to be taught by the Holy Spirit of God into our lives today. And if we do not depend upon the Spirit to teach us what it means, we are not going to know what it means. Do we know what it says? Absolutely. You can read it and know what it says. A computer knows what the Bible says. Anybody who reads it knows what it says the issue is, what does it mean? Now we’re told in the epistles, that no eye has seen, nor ear has heard, nor mind is conceived of those things that God has prepared for those who love Him. But it must be what? revealed by who? The Spirit. So the Spirit … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Jesus Came to Divide ~ Set You Apart From the World ~ Truth Divides
~ “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword [of division between belief and unbelief].” Matthew 10:34 AMP
~ “So folks, we have to understand that Jesus becomes a divider of mankind, and you cannot compromise that there is no compromise in the Gospel. Jesus is God or isn’t God, if he if you don’t think he is joining the rest of the world, but if you believe he is who he is, and that is God, and you believe he’s the savior of the world, and you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has come to save you, you are by that very nature going to be controversial. And you are by that very nature, you’re going to be separate from the rest of the world. So he says that this child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel and to be assigned that will be spoken against. So at the thoughts of many hearts … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P54 (07-13-22)
Understanding Our Identification of Being in Christ Jesus
In today’s lesson, Bob gives an example of marriage and the identification we have when we are married vs that of being a single person. Many times people get married, and they still maintain the attitude of singleness in their head. They take the attitude of not considering the needs of the mate, and only worry about their own self.
How does this relate to being married to Jesus? Well, when we understand what Jesus did for the church, that He loves us perfectly, and that He serves us with love and grace in our time of need, then we likewise, when in a marriage also, we can serve one another in love when you have two people who are in Christ Jesus themselves. They have oneness in a marriage where both are in Christ Jesus.
