The Cross:
The Dividing Line
of Human History

The French philosopher, Pascal, stated, “There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ.” Man, however, has sought to fill this vacuum through various ways: financial success, social status, education, sexual encounters, friends, marriage and children, and occupation. Regardless of man’s success in these endeavors, he still finds himself empty. H.G. Wells, famous historian and philosopher, at the age of 61 said, “I have no peace. All life is at the end of the tether.” The poet Byron said, “My days are in the yellow leaf, the flowers and fruits of life are gone, the worm and the canker and the grief are min alone.”

Man has even turned to religion and social reform to fill the void. The great Hindu leader, Mahatma Gandhi, with his undying and sacrificial devotion to his religion, stated in his autobiography: “It is a constant torture to me that I am still so far from Him whom I know to be my very life and being. I know it is my own wretchedness and wickedness that keeps me from Him.” Even religion is not enough.

The vacuum Pascal describes is a basic need in the heart of every man to know God, to experience His forgiveness, to be freed from the bondage of guilt, and to know that he has been totally accepted by God. Only God can meet this need, and He does so through His Son, Jesus Christ. Through His death on the cross, Jesus Christ demonstrated the love of God for you and me and ushered in a brand new covenant whereby we can experience forgiveness and have new life. It is because of this that we take a closer look at the finality of the cross.

    The Closer Look studies clearly teach the core of living for Jesus. The lectures are the bonus to these studies.

    The best in the series

    Posted by Becky Smith on 8th Nov 2014

    A Closer look at the Finality of the Cross is really the best in the series of Bible studies by Bob George. After going through this study, the Christian enters God's Sabbath rest by realizing that all our sins have truly been forgiven, taken away and God promises "Their sins and lawless deeds I will remember no more." The sin issue is finished in God's eyes. Thank You, Lord. And thank you, Bob George for this study.
