Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 120 Our Greatest Enemy

What is our greatest enemy? Is it Satan? The World? Those who say they hate Christians? While these may bring us afflictions and trials from time to time, I don’t think they are really our greatest enemy. I think our greatest enemy is ourselves separate from Christ. In order to see this, we must come back to Calvary and what Christ Jesus did on the cross. God judged the entire human race according to Adam at the cross and put it away from Him. It was infected with sin and beyond repair. Nothing in the old creation could be rescued, so God began a new race in Christ. This race would not fail because it is based on what God can do, not what man can do in himself. To enter into this new race we must be born again. In new birth we are joined with Christ and now all things are of God. To begin and continue in this new creation is God’s answer to sin, death, and the limitations of man separate from Him.

  • God judged Adam’s race at the cross (Gal. 2:20,6:14, Rom 6:6)
  • God began a new creation in Christ Jesus (Gal. 6:15)
  • Now all things are of God (Gal. 5:16-21)
  • To experience this we must be born into this new creation (John 3)
  • We now must grow up into Him (Eph. 4:15, 2 Peter 3:18)
  • We are called to walk in His life (Gal. 5:16)
  • This walk is a walk of faith in His life (Col. 2:6)
  • If we do not walk in faith in the new creation, what we are accord to Adam rules
    • Our natural reasoning rules (what we know from past experiences)
    • Our desires rule (flesh)
    • Our emotions rule
    • Our personality rules
    • The world rules us by its pressures
  • The enemy appeals to what we are in ourselves (“be your own resource”)
  • God bids us acknowledge that apart from Him we can do nothing (John 15:5)
  • This is a continual walk of faith in the life of God (Gal. 2:20)
