Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ P20 (04-26-22)
The Law of The Spirit of Life Sets Us Free From the Law of Sin and Death
In today’s lesson, from the Bible study booklet, A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ, available for purchase from our online Bob George Ministries ecommerce store Bob continues teaching on a very important lesson for today. It is a key understanding in the New Covenant that we live under and having a proper understanding of the keywords, For all those in Christ Jesus, we have been made holy, we have been set apart. Jesus did it all.
“You’re not self-holy and you’re not self-righteous. If you are, you’re living in what? Deluded futility of your thinking. And so we’re created now to walk now in a newness of life. Whereby, I’m walking clothed in His righteousness because of His one offering I’ve been made holy. I’ve already been set apart because of Him. I have been sanctified because of Him. I have been glorified because of Him. I have been justified in the sight of God. Everything is now mine because of Him.”
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 base their beliefs and build their lives. The word of God declares that Jesus Christ is that foundation of truth. With that in mind, let’s now take A Closer Look at Your Identity in Christ.
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at The Reality of The Resurrection P20 (01-12-22)
For in the Gospel the Righteousness of God is Revealed!
“For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:17
A righteousness that is by faith from first to last! Do you believe it? Or, are you still trying to live in the energy of the flesh? Here’s the thing folks, you are never ever going to get that flesh cleaned up. It rears it’s ugly head time and time again. The things I don’t want to do, I do and the things I want to do, I don’t do. You can’t carry it out. Paul found this out for himself. He found out that there was nothing good in his flesh. Every time he thought about himself, he realized that that was the flesh talking to him. The flesh loves me, myself and I. It focuses on self. And it loves self righteousness.

Are You as Perfect As Jesus Christ?
If you were asked, “Are you as perfect as Jesus Christ?”, what would be your answer? Are you in Christ? Are you in Him? If you say “yes” to that, what would your answer be, according to the word of God? Have you understood the New Covenant of God’s grace? So let us look at some passages of scriptures so we can come to a conclusion. What did God say?
Hebrews 10:14 14 For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
Do we believe what God said, or are we like Adam in the garden of Eden, who did not believe what God said. “I know God said to not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but I say it is good for me.” What happened to Adam? He sinned and he died, just as God had said would happen.
So many times people form doctrines from what they read but out of context of the complete picture of the New Covenant, which Christ Jesus ushered in … Listen to Broadcast & Read More

Darkness and Light Refers to Lost and Saved in Scripture
Much of the so-called Christian community have been taught that you can be in and out of fellowship with God, either meaning that you can lose your salvation or you can lose fellowship with God when you sin, and when you lose fellowship, you have to confess those sins in order to get back in fellowship. But let us focus in on this one passage of scripture, where light and darkness are used.
1 John 1:5-7 5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
