Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P448 (6-13-19)
So many callers simply called to thank Bob for the teaching he has done for so many years. Many have read books he had written, such as “Victory over Depression”, while others remember hearing Bob teach at a conference about the finality of the cross or the New Covenant. Their lives were personally changed as they simply replaced error with truth. Two books that these listeners mentioned were “Classic Christianity” and “Victory over Depression”.
Bob summarized the purpose of life by saying we are to live one day at a time, sharing the love of the Father with people. God loves people unconditionally and wants to set them free. If truth is what sets people free, then error is what binds them. The only purpose for us being here is to be available to God to let Him live in us and through us. It is not about living a bunch of principles or under law or getting a bunch of people together doing the same thing, at the same time with the same enthusiasm. God will individually guide each believer, as individuals, what he wants him to do, what to … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 29 (06-04-19)
Bob George teaches from John 6. Bob shares that the humble of heart are the ones the Father gives to Jesus, whom the Father draws and enables to be saved. The humble have come to the end of themselves, their philosophy, their religion, or their best efforts. Their circumstances, such a divorce or loss of income, and world view of life all came crashing down on them to lead them to the point of despair or frustration. They humbled themselves and said to God, “I can’t but you can”. Now they are ready to turn to Jesus for the answer to life, that Jesus alone is the way, the truth, and the life. But God resists the proud. The proud will not see God. The Father will not give the proud to Jesus for they will not trust him, they do not see their need of him and do not want Him. The proud is satisfied with their religion or tradition or insist that there are many ways to God. For the Father only gives to Jesus those who are humble of heart, for they are the ones ready to listen … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 28 (06-03-19)
Bob George continues teaching from the gospel of John. Currently, he is reading from John 6, picking up after where Jesus just fed five thousand men, not including women and children, on a few loaves of bread and two fish. This whole section here is the key to understanding who you are in Christ Jesus. As you read John 6, notice the response of the Jews. They did not seek to know God but only sought Jesus to have their bellies filled. Seek spiritual food that endures unto eternal life. Let us not seek the Holy Spirit, the Father or an experience but get to know Jesus, that He is God. Do not be proud of heart, but ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you. God look at the attitudes of your heart and not as man sees. He wants to give new life to you. Consider what Jesus is trying to reveal to man about himself, that he is dead and in need of life. That is why he came from heaven, for man to recognize his state of spiritual death and come to Christ for new spiritual food … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 25 (05-27-19)
We read from John 5:42, where Jesus spoke to the world, and said, “I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.” Bob George earlier explained that Jesus came to dwell with men so they may see they are dead, without the Holy Spirit living in them, in order that they might hear the words of life and come to Jesus Christ to receive his life. The life that is in Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit of God. Having emptied himself of his divine attributes, Jesus, as God in the flesh, walked on the earth as a man. He lived as a man, showing us how mankind was designed to live, by being total dependent on the Holy Spirit (John 5:19, John 8:28).
Bob George digresses to teach from 1 Corinthians 13 to explain how the fruit of the Spirit must come from abiding in the vine, the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ. God is the source of love for God is love. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love (1 John 4:8). The pride of men, as in the … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P443 (5-24-19)
Julie called to ask if living with someone outside marriage is wrong. Bob said it is sin and explained the simple gospel message. She was making excuses for her behavior and Bob was firm with truth, extending grace, but firmly instructing her to make right choices. Chip called to simply thank Bob for his teaching on the finality of the cross, the reality of the resurrection and the New Covenant of grace. Chip had spent much time living in the flesh, being condemned when reading scriptures, until he was able to grasp such truth. Katie called, with great emotional pain, for her husband left her. Bob encouraged her and reminded her to think truthfully, take every thought captive, trust God for tomorrow and live day by day, continually giving thanks to God in all things. He further instructed her on living by the Spirit. Bob instructed her to trust the Lord to provide your needs, particularly unconditional love and acceptance, which you cannot receive from a spouse. Bob explained that the root cause of divorce is demanding such things from a spouse they cannot meet. Larry called for Bob to explain … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
