Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P470 (9-05-19)
Several callers asked if there are prophets today. Prior to the finished work of Jesus Christ, God’s word had to be explained to men. But no man then had the Spirit to explain things to them. All men are born spiritually dead. So God raised up prophets in the Old Testament to instruct men. These prophets had direct revelation from God and spoke the very words of God. That is how the Old Testament came into existence, as these words were written down. God, knowing the god of this world and the hearts of men, wanted to ensure that people knew what His words are, and not lies proclaimed from deceived and wicked men. Therefore, when God formed a nation of the Jewish people under an Old Covenant system, established for that time period, the instruction was given that if anyone claimed to be a prophet and what he said did not come to pass, then that person was to be stoned to death.
Today, there are no need of prophets because all that man needs to know of such spiritual importance for life and godliness, and concerning Christ Jesus … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P466 (8-22-19)
The first caller, Hans, with understandably great emotion with weighty decisions to make. He shared that he is dying of melanoma cancer that has invaded much of his body already, including his brain. He had concerns about losing a relationship with God because of potential damage to his brain. Bob assured him that his relationship with God will always be there. You will never cease to be a child of God. You might not be able to pray to Him, but you are in His hands. He was also wanting advice on further treatments to take. Bob could not answer that for him, but for him to ask God for wisdom. God gives wisdom to all who ask without partiality. But he offered what he personally would want to know. If the cancer has invaded most of his body and that no amount of treatment will get rid of it, then the decision, to Bob, would be one of quality of life versus quantity of life. He would personally refuse continued treatment, if he had definitive information from the doctor on the matter. Other considerations is the financial burden on … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
Classic Christianity – Book of John Part 24 (05-22-19)
Bob George shares from John 5, on the testimony of the Father concerning Jesus. Bob emphasized the life of the Holy Spirit living in a person, producing the fruit of the Spirit. That ultimately is the work Jesus came to do. One characteristic of the Spirit is love (Galatians 5:22-23). Then he shares from 1 Corinthians 13, explaining how Jesus came to expose the pride in man, that he may humble himself, recognize his state of spiritual death, and come to walk in the newness of life, with the Spirit of God living in him. The opposite of love is not hate, but pride. As a born again person, Jesus is showing us today how to live in dependence on the Holy Spirit of God. He is the vine and we are the branches. We love because he first loved us. Allow the love of he Holy Spirit to be produced in you and through you.

Bob George continues teaching from the book of John. He encourages all believers to pick up the gospel of John over and over again so you may know the love of God. What counts is lives changed by the Holy Spirit living in men, where faith expresses itself through love. The love that is produced in you is the love of God so that love can be expressed through you.
Galatians 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
John 1:1-3 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
There was a beginning for you and the beginning was the word of God. When God created this world, how did he create it? God created everything there is by his word. This world came into existence by the spoken word of God. So we know that the word was with God and … Listen to Broadcast & Read More
