Better in Every Way

Do you still listen to cassette tapes? No, cassettes have been replaced by something better. It’s the same with the Old and New Covenants. Hebrews 8:13 says “By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.” We no longer are under the requirements of the Old Covenant but are free to live in the New Covenant which is better in every way.

The Law Made Nothing Perfect

Do you characterize your Christian life with these words: “It’s a life of work and striving for acceptance.?” We’ve got good news for you. Hebrews 7:18,19 “For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.”
* Andrew asks how to deal with a Christian who does things contrary to their belief?
* My friend claims you can lose your salvation if you don’t repent and get it right with God. Narrow is the way that leads unto life, and very few will find it, according to Matt. 7:14.” * Join Bob Christopher in Israel 2019. * What is your concise explanation of how to be saved?

The Will of God

This New Covenant is for you and me. It’s where we live today. Too often we try to mix the old and new and make a mess of it and us. Hebrews 8:7 reads, “For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second.” There was nothing wrong with the law, but “[God] finds fault with [the people] when he says Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant…” Hebrews 8:8,9
* How do I get across to someone the need for salvation and forgiveness for sins? * Please explain the difference between Hell and the Lake of Fire.
* Where do you stand on alcohol, and if he and the others believe alcohol consumption is a sin, what authority does he have to condemn someone?

Ephesians – 4:1-16: The Body

The Christian walk is marked by humility, gentleness, patience, love and the bond of peace. We are unified as one body with one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism and one God and Father of all. Grace has been given to each one according to the measure of Christ’s gift. This grace enables and empowers us to live in unity and grow together in the fullness of Christ.

Children of the Promise

Who was the Old Covenant given to? So often we think it’s for everyone. But when you read it you find that it was specifically for Israel. God gave it to them when he rescued them from Eqypt. But this covenant with Israel did not supersede the covenant with Abraham. The promise for all nations to be blessed through Abraham was still in effect. Moses was a servant not a son. * What are your thoughts on levels of Hell based on the judgment seat?
* What is faith? I pray and have faith that God will heal people. But I have prayed for 20 years for a cure to my MS and I still have it. Now I question my faith.
* What does John 3:8 mean? “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

The Unexpected

What does God do when he shows up in someone’s life? He does the unexpected. He shows up in Abraham’s life and brings blessings and promises. And we receive the blessings and promises through Jesus Christ who has fulfilled them. We read that in Galatians 3 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us–for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”– so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith. Gal 3:13,14 * Gene asks about a new believer’s actions after they are saved? * Will God save Jewish people?
* How can we reach those who give up something for Lent with the freedom in Christ?
* Shouldn’t we keep the Ten Commandments, especially the Sabbath, to help our relationship with God?

We Live By Promise

We live in a New Covenant that Jesus Christ ushered in for us 2,000 years ago. But there is an Old Covenant called the Mosaic Covenant. And that covenant was bilateral which means that each party had conditions to meet. We read in Exodus 24:3 after Moses read all the words of the covenant the people responded, “All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do.”. But soon after they violated the covenant. In the New Covenant it unilateral. God declared it and we benefit. We are the recipients of His work for us. * Are there levels in Hell? I can’t find anything in Scripture about it. * Join us in Israel – May 25 – June 6
