Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P28 (06-22-20)
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Ponder over this scripture. How much time do you and I spend on things that are temporary, the seen things, when the Lord tells us to keep our eyes on Him and things that are eternal? We know our bodies are wasting away. Anyone over forty certainly has a greater understanding of that, and certainly someone in their fifties. But we are told to number our days so we may gain a heart of wisdom. We need to evaluate our priorities in life and invest in things that last forever, in worthy ministries to get the message of God’s grace into the hearts of men. We need to invest our money, our time, and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P27 (06-17-20)
This hope we have is in this new glorious body we have been promised and being with the Lord forever. We have this hope, so there is no fear in death, by which we say, “Where, Oh death, is your sting. Where, Oh death, is your victory.” Paul writes to encourage the believers, both those who are still alive when the Lord returns, and those who have already died, of this hope. We will have a new glorious body like His when we see Him like He is, for He says He will transform our lowly bodies into glorious bodies like His because we shall see Him as He is. When we die He has told us that when we are absent from this body, this earthly tent, we shall be present with Him. So the Spirit reveals the truth of these things to us. He does so so that we can know this hope and not weep like those who have no hope. We hold onto what He has said and believe what He tells us, because that is what faith is, believing what He … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – A Closer Look at Faith, Hope & Love P26 (06-16-20)
So we, who are in Christ, have this blessed hope, that one day, in a flash, in a twinkling of an eye, we will be changed. The moment we die, or the moment we are raptured, either way, we will be changed because we will see Him as He really is. We will be given a new spiritual body, like His. This earthly body will remain in the grave. For we read that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. The perishable will be swallowed up with the imperishable. Now, what we will be, what this new body will be like, that has not been made known. But we do know what Jesus said, that our body will be like His glorious body. And we know one thing about His body, that after He walked on the earth after rising from the dead, he appeared to his disciples behind locked doors. He walked through a wall. So, I would assume that we will have a body that can walk through walls. But beyond that, what the body will be like has not been made … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P510 (02-07-20)
Many times callers call into the Classic Christianity radio to get answers to common questions, get clarifications or Bob’s thoughts on things they have heard from others, things that just does not sound right or the practical application of living in the new life you have in Christ Jesus. Many times, when you have a basic foundation in truth, these questions can easily be answered. If you know that you are under a New Covenant system of grace and not under the Old Covenant or law, and you know what salvation is, and what Jesus accomplished for you by his death, burial and resurrection, most of these questions can be answered.
Bob made it a point to say that if you put a few basic foundation truths together, such as what salvation is, salvation is by life not death (Romans 5:10), that righteousness is imputed to you (Romans 4:22-25), you do not have any righteousness of your own (Romans 3:10) and Jesus taught under an Old Covenant while proclaiming the New Covenant (Hebrews 7:27; Hebrews 10:14-18), you are under grace and not law (Romans 6:14), then all the findings that … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of Romans P34 (01-27-19)
In this mortal body of ours, you, who are in Christ, being born again, have the Spirit of God living in you. This body of flesh and blood is not suited for heaven, being weakened by the fall of man, and will go the grave. But God sealed in you the Holy Spirit of promise, to one day be raised, with a new body, an immortal body designed for heaven. We long to be clothed in our new body, but while we are on this fallen world, where even all creation groans for its redemption, we live by faith.
The same Spirit, in the earthly body of Jesus, is the same Spirit living in us. As Jesus lived by faith, with the Spirit living in him, doing only what he saw his Father doing and only saying what is Father told him to say and how to say it, is the perfect model of how man was designed to function. That is why he is referred to as the second Adam. We are designed to walk in the same manner of faith as he did.
