Jesus' First And Last Request



     Friends, remember that Jesus' first and last request to everyone is to save and win souls. Every church should replace the exit sign on their church with the sign "You are now entering the mission field". Notice that in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts Jesus' first and last request is to save and win souls. I'm gonna obey the Lord Jesus and tell everyone reading this bible study to repent, stop sinning, confess that Jesus is God, believing that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. 

     Pictured above let's start with Matthew and see Jesus' first and last request. Matthew 4:19 states Jesus' first request to win souls "And He (Jesus) saith unto them Follow me and I will make you fishers of men". And Matthew 28:18 states Jesus' last request to win souls "And Jesus came and spake unto them saying All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen". 

     Therefore we see that according to Jesus winning and saving souls for Jesus should be the most important goal for all christians. Singing in the choir, helping the babies in the church nursery, keeping the financial records for the church, and cleaning the church are important. But, according to Jesus, it's more important that christians travel everywhere and use this internet to win lost souls to our Lord Jesus. I agree with the blessed quote from CT Studd "Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell but I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell".


     OK notice that Jesus' last request in the gospel of  Mark is to save and win lost souls. Mark 16:15 says And He (Jesus) said unto them Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. And wow Jesus last request in the gospel of Luke is also to save and win lost souls. Luke 24:47 says And that repentance and remisson of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses (for Jesus) (not Jehovah witnesses) of these things. 

     We see again in Mark and Luke that Jesus says that saving and winning souls should be the main goal for all christians. Remember, the last thing Jesus did on this earth before He died on the cross was save and win a lost soul (the thief that said Lord remember me). Jesus told that thief To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. Jesus saved this thief through the suffering and pain of the cross. Lord Jesus help everyone reading this to be like you and not allow a little suffering to stop them from winning souls and telling people everywhere about our Lord Jesus. 

A Poem By Will Hougton

Lead me to some soul today
Teach me Lord just what to say

Friends of mine are lost in sin and can not find their way
Few there are who seem to care; Few there are who pray

Melt my heart; Fill my life
Give me one soul a day.



     Alright, let see Jesus' last request in the gospel of John to save and win lost souls. John 20:21 says Then said Jesus to them again; Peace be unto you; as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And the Father sent Jesus to seek and to save them that are lost according to Luke 19:10 that says For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. And Jesus' last request on this earth before He rose to glory was to save and win lost souls at Acts 1:8. This blessed scripture says But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me (unto Jesus) both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. In other words, Jesus told us to be witnesses for Him unto the uttermost part of the earth by sharing the good news of Jesus on this internet everywhere. 

     Remember according to Jesus the most important goal for all christians should be to save and win lost souls to our Lord Jesus. Everyone should win at least one soul a year to our Lord Jesus. Don't live a year without winning one person to our Lord. At least plant and water by sharing the Word of God and telling people everywhere about salvation through our Lord Jesus. One plants, another waters, and God gives the increase. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life and he that winneth souls is wise. Let's obey our Lord Jesus' command to all his servants; Go ye into the highways and hedges, compelling them to come in that Jesus' house may be full. 

Another Blessed Poem About Winning Souls To Our Lord Jesus

Let me see this world Dear Lord
As though I was looking through your eyes

A world of men who don't want you Lord
But a world for which you died

Let me stand high above my petty problems
And reach for souls hellbound eternally

For if once I could see this world the way you see
I'd just know I'd serve you more faithfully

A True Story About Pastor John Harper
One Of The Greatest Soul Winners For Our Lord Jesus

     Pictured above we see one of the greatest soul winners that ever lived for our Lord Jesus named Pastor John Harper. During 1912 Pastor Harper won thousands of souls to our Lord Jesus in Scotland. After DL Moody invited Pastor Harper to come to America to preach a revival in Chicago, Pastor Harper traveled on a boat across the Atlantic Ocean to preach for a month in Chicago for DL Moody where thousands of souls got saved. 

     After Pastor Harper preached his Chicago revival, he took a train back to New England and got on a boat named the Titanic with his 5 year old little daughter to return to his home in Scotland. The Titanic hit an iceberg and began to sink. Pastor John Harper will forever be remembered as a hero that saved thousands of lives on the Titanic. While the Titanic was sinking, Pastor Harper allowed the women and the little children (including his little 5 year old girl) to safely board the limited number of lifeboats available.

     While the Titanic kept sinking, Pastor John Harper shouted to everyone on the deck of the Titanic over and over again Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Pastor Harper asked a man are you saved? When the man replied No, Pastor Harper gave him his life jacket saying you need this more than me; if I die I'll go to heaven but if you die without Jesus you'll go to hell; therefore you need this life jacket more than me.

     After the Titanic sank, Pastor John Harper grabbed onto a piece of wood and found himself floating in the Atlantic Ocean. While floating, Pastor Harper met another man floating on a piece of wood in the Atlantic Ocean. John Harper asked this man "Are you saved". The man replied No and I don't want to be saved. Pastor Harper shouted to him Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. 

     And then the waves took John Harper away from the lost man. But by some chance, coincidence, or maybe some divine providence, they met each other again floating in the Atlantic Ocean. Again, Pastor Harper told the lost man "Are you saved now, you don't have much time left". Again the man replied No and I don't want to be saved. Pastor Harper screamed to him Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.  

     Then as John Harper floated away, the lost man saw Pastor Harper die and sink to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Four years later at a testimony meeting in Ontario, a young Scotsman rose in the meeting saying I am a survivor of the Titanic. When I was drifitng alone on a board in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a man named Pastor John Harper floated by screaming Are you saved. When I said No I don't want to be saved, Pastor Harper replied Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. 

     Then after I saw Pastor John Harper die and sink to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, there alone on a board in the Atlantic Ocean with two miles of water underneath me, I got gloriously saved and made Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour. Then I was rescued by a lifeboat. I am Pastor John Harper's last convert. We should forever remember Pastor John Harper as the true hero of the Titanic that saved thousands for our Lord Jesus even until the last moment before he died. 

     I pray in Jesus name this bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz9tlm@gmail.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Until we all meet again soon, be blessed in the name of our Lord Jesus.

Forward A Year Ago



2 Corinthians 8:10
Instead Of Begun Before
Be Forward A Year Ago

     Let's look at a wise saying from Paul at 2 Corinthians 8:10 that says And herein I give my advice; for this is expedient for you, who have begun before not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago. In other words don't just say I've begun before starting anything without completing your goals. Instead say I was forward a year ago and will continue to move forward for Jesus completing all my plans to tell everyone around this earth about Jesus. 

     Don't say I've begun before promising to read the whole bible and stop reading at Genesis. Don't say I've begun before starting to pray for people and become too busy to finish your prayers. Don't say I've begun before starting to diet and lose weight while you keep eating and gain weight. 

     If you are struggling and getting persecuted for serving Jesus, struggle forward; Don't struggle backward. Eventually you will become a winner and succeed if you don't quit. Galatians 6:9 promises And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 

     If you made a commitment a year ago, don't just begin but keep going forward and complete your commitments.  Don't quit. Be forward a year ago. Restart your commitments and do them again and again, refusing to stop. Don't just say I'll complete a task. Perform the task. Paul said to be forward a year ago because you performed and completed all your promises. Paul said at 2 Corinthians 8:11 Now therefore perform the doing of it, that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have. 

     God places desires in our hearts to reach people for Jesus and we have to be willing and finally perform these desires to reach and witness Jesus to multitudes all over this earth. Brother Bob today is going to complete his promise and tell people everywhere reading this bible study how to get saved. Right now repent, stop sinning, confess that Jesus is your God, and believe in your heart that Jesus died on the cross for you, was buried, and rose again. 

     Don't just begin to serve Jesus and throw in the towel because of persecution saying why should I even try again. Just keep trying to witness and tell everyone everywhere about Jesus and eventually you will be successful, while millions of souls all over this earth become saved.

     In the 1700s missionary to India William Carey only won about twenty souls to Jesus. But William Carey kept plodding and witnessing Jesus to the people of India and eventually William Carey reached millions in India with the gospel of our Lord Jesus. William Carey said Attempt great things for God; Expect great things from God. And William Carey had the bible translated into the many languages of the people of India and successfully completed his promise to share Jesus with everyone in India.

Like Missionary David Livingstone Say
I Am Prepared To Go Anywhere
Provided It Be Forward

     A blessed missionary to Africa from the 1800s named David Livingstone won multitudes to our Lord Jesus in the jungles of Africa because he kept moving forward. Reese's Encyclopedia Of Christian Biographies tells us that David Livingstone was a pioneer missionary and explorer to Africa who preached the gospel to the central part of Africa. David Livingstone never looked backward and was determined to tell everyone in Africa about Jesus saying I am prepared to go anywhere, provided it be forward. Let's all be like David Livingstone and be prepared to go anywhere telling everyone about our Lord Jesus, provided it be forward. Don't ever go backward and fall away from Jesus. Just keep going forward like David Livingstone. 

     David Livingstone studied theology and medicine while he was working in a cotton mill in England during the 1800s. He was converted to christianity at age 20. David Livingstone traveled 30000 miles throughout central Africa during his life to witness and win souls to Jesus. He first arrived in Africa in 1841 and married Mary Moffitt, daughter of the missionary Robert Moffitt. They were separated half of their 18 years of marriage (wow what a commitment to tell the African people about Jesus). David Livingstone successfully witnessed Jesus to thousands of native Africans who got saved for our Lord Jesus. 

     His wife Mary Moffitt died in his arms on the remote Zambezi river in central Africa. David Livingstone's ministry included preaching the gospel, healing the sick, recording African geography, helping to stop the Portuguese slave trade, and seeking the source of the Nile river. Early in his expeditions he was attacked and maimed by a lion; He discovered Lake Ngami, the Zambezi river, Victoria Falls, and Lake Nyasa. 

     David Livingstone originally served under the London Missionary Society and under the British Government and finally under the Royal Geographical Society. He wrote Missionary Travels; A best seller; After being considered missing for some time, he was finally found by Henry Stanley at Ujiji Africa in 1871. When Stanley found Livingstone he said the famous words Dr. Livingstone I presume. 

     Just before David Livingstone's death, he said build me a hut to die in; I am going home; He was found dead on his knees praying. The natives of Africa buried his heart in Africa but his body was buried in Westminster Abbey back in London England. His favorite bible verse was Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.     

A Song About Going Forward
By Palmer Hartsow

I am resolved no longer to linger
charmed by the world's delight
Things that are higher; things that are nobler
These have allured my sight

I am resolved to go to the Saviour
Leaving my sin and strife
He is the true one; He is the just one
He hath the words of Life

I am resolved to follow the Saviour
Faithful and true each day
Heed what He saith; Do what He willeth
He is the living way

I am resolved to enter the kingdom 
Leaving the paths of sin
Friends may oppose me; Foes may beset me
Still will I enter in

I will hasten to Him
Hasten so glad and free
Jesus greatest highest
I will come to thee

Don't quit; Keep serving Jesus; Keep moving forward for Jesus
The christian life requires resolution and determination
to keep moving forward and witnessing
Jesus to multitudes all over this earth

Wow What A Quote From Carl Bard
Memorize and Perform This Blessed Quote

Though no one can go back
And make a brand new start
Anyone can start from now
And make a brand new ending

     After saying this quote, stop feeling guilty for your past mistakes. The blood of Jesus has washed away your past sins and the Lord Jesus has forgotten your past mistakes. Start from now and make a brand new ending. If Jesus can forgive the thief on the cross who murdered, raped, and lied all his life, Jesus can forgive you and use you to be a great soul winner for Jesus. The thief on the cross asked Jesus Lord remember me. Jesus saved him and replied Today thou shalt be with me in paradise. In an instant, all the thief's past sins were forgotten and he was saved forevermore. The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain (of the blood of Jesus) in his day, and there may I though vile as he wash all my sins away.


How To Be Forward A Year Ago

     According to the Lord Jesus, let's see how we can be forward a year ago. Each year the earth revolves one time around the sun at a distance of 93 million miles away traveling at a speed of 67000 miles an hour. Wow, we are not standing still; we are moving. And the earth revolves around the sun each year with unbelievable consistency. Meteorologists know the exact time and minute of the sunset for every day of the year. 

     In other words, every second and each time you snap your fingers the earth has moved 18.5 miles around the sun. And while the earth is revolving around the sun each year at 67000 miles an hour, the earth's equator is spinning around at 1000 miles an hour while the earth wobbles back and forth at a 22 degree angle. Praise and worship our Lord Jesus who is driving all this. Job 26;7 says He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. 

     And then our entire solar system (the sun and nine planets) are moving north at a speed of 43000 miles an hour while the earth is revolving around the sun at 67000 miles an hour. In other words, Brother Bob who is 57 years old has made 57 revolutions around the sun at 67000 miles an hour while the entire solar system is moving north at a speed of 43000 miles an hour. Praise you Lord Jesus for driving and creating these heavens and earth. 

     Therefore, God measures and schedules things by years. Determine to be forward a year ago and keep moving forward. Determine each year to learn all you can about the Lord Jesus. Keep reading and memorizing your bible so you can say I am forward a year ago. Keep getting better each year and determine to reach more souls for Jesus each year. 

The Benefits Of Being Forward A Year Ago

     If you started to read your bible last year and stopped at Genesis, this year start reading your bible again at Exodus and read it to Revelation so you can be forward a year ago. Don't ever quit reading, memorizing, and studying your bible so you can be forward a year ago. Psalm 1 promises that if anyone meditates and memorizes the bible whatsoever they do will prosper, and God will fix all their troubles.

     If you become forward a year ago by daily reading and memorizing the Word of God, 2 Peter 1:2 promises Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. Notice that the more you read, know, and memorize the bible, that grace and peace will be multiplied (not added) unto you. When something is added it's 1+1=2; 2+2=4; but when something is multiplied it's 2x2=4; 4x4=16; 8x8=64; I'd rather have things multiplied unto me than added unto me; And if anyone reads, knows, and memorizes the bible, grace and peace will be multiplied unto them. Right now praise Jesus and say Thank you Lord for multiplied peace and grace that is exceedingly abundantly above all I ask or think while I am forward a year ago in my bible reading. 

     Finally, here's some more suggestions to become forward a year ago. Determine to pray for more people each year. Have prayer time every morning. Pray all the time while you work, shop for groceries, do the laundry, and pay your bills. Pray for people whenever God places them on your heart. 

     And be determined to attend every service at your local church. Hebrews 10:25 tells us Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as the manner of some is but exhorting one another, and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Since we see that the day of  Christ is soon approaching, we need to go to church more, assembling ourselves together so we can all become forward a year ago.

     Don't just say you will pray more and go to church more. Pray more and go to church more so you can become forward a year ago. Take time to read the parable about two men (one who just talked and promised but did not perform his goals while the other completed and performed the request) at Matthew 21:28.

     Matthew 21:28 says A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not; but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and he said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his Father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.  

     Everyone let's be like the son that completed the father's request. Instead of saying I've begun before, tell the Lord Jesus I've become forward a year ago. Repent, start from now, and make a brand new ending. Let's complete all our promises and reach more people each year for Jesus, while more and more souls all over this earth become saved.

     I enjoyed writing this bible study today that I pray in Jesus name blesses multitudes all over this earth with great peace and strength. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz9tlm@gmail.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day.

How To Stay Clean



     Today let's learn how to stay clean after we get saved. If we look at the pictured scriptures above we see that first when anyone gets saved by faith without works, God stops imputing or remembering their sins by cleansing their sins with the blood of Jesus. Get saved right now and repent, stop sinning, confess Jesus to be your God, and believe daily that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again.

     After salvation, 1 John 1:7 promises But if we walk in the light (Jesus), as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin. In other words, when anyone gets saved God puts down his pen and no longer imputes or keeps track of our sins in His records in heaven. Romans 4:8 says Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. And 2 Corinthians 5:19 tells us To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them, and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 

     How comforting to know that after salvation by faith in Jesus alone with no works, the blood of Jesus washes away all our sins past, present, and future. Rejoice and say Hebrews 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And say Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering, He (Jesus) hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. 

     In other words, Jesus doesn't have to be crucified over and over to sanctify and cleanse us all from sin. This is why Jesus said at the cross It is finished. Jesus made the payment of His blood for our redemption and salvation from our sins once at the cross. It requires no work from us. Just believe what Jesus has already done at the cross to be saved and don't add your own works. It's enough without our works what Jesus did at the cross to obtain salvation. Ephesians 2:8 says For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.  

     But saved saints can again sin after salvation, and this is why christians need to daily confess their sins and stay clean. The next verse at 1 John 1:8 says that after salvation when the blood of Jesus cleanseth us from all sin, christians can still sin because if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth (Jesus) is not in us. And then 1 John 1:10 again emphasizes that we can again sin after salvation saying If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him (Jesus) a liar, and His word is not in us.   

     Now if we can still sin after salvation, why should we stay clean and daily try to stop sinning? The answer is to avoid trouble, problems, and death. Ephesians 4:27 says Neither give place to the devil. Romans 6:1 says Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid, how shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein.  After salvation by faith in Jesus, a christian can not lose his or her salvation but can commit a sin unto death. The sin unto death that saved christians can commit is listed at 1 Corinthians 5:5 where saved saints sinned and died because they had sex with their father's wife. The scripture says that these saved saints were delivered unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Notice that these saints were saved with eternal life, but experienced a premature death because of their sin.

     Pictured above, Jesus explained to Peter that he was cleansed by the blood of Jesus of all his sins, but had to wash his feet to stop sinning after salvation while walking through this world. John 13:6 says Then cometh He (Jesus) to Simon Peter and Peter saith unto Him, Lord dost thou wash my feet? Peter saith unto Him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. (Wow tremble at these words and notice that Jesus said if anyone is not washed by Jesus (which does not include good works and religion) they can not be saved). Only Jesus can save anyone.

     Now notice Peter's radical change of mind at John 13:9 where Simon Peter saith unto Him, Lord not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Now Peter wants his feet along with his hands and head washed by Jesus. Notice Jesus' response at John 13:10 He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet but is clean ( In other words Peter Jesus has cleansed you of all your sins but after salvation you can still sin and need to stay clean and wash your feet daily to avoid trouble from the devil).

     Therefore, like Peter, when saved saints walk through this world, they need to daily wash their feet and deny sin by staying clean. When anyone practices or commits sins, even saved saints, they block God from blessing them. This is why we need to stay clean and avoid sinning daily. Psalm 66:18 says If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. Wow, God will not hear the prayers of people, even saved people, that practice sin and fail to stay clean by confessing their sins daily. And notice that Romans 8:13 says For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die; but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

FOUR WAYS TO STAY CLEAN AFTER SALVATION

1) CONFESS YOUR SINS DAILY TO STAY CLEAN

     The first way to stay clean after salvation is to confess your sins daily. 1 John 1:9 promises If we confess our sins, He (Jesus) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. One of the daily benefits anyone receives when they confess their sins is listed at Psalm 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases. And rejoice, because Psalm 68:19 promises Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits (those listed in Psalm 103) even the God of our salvation.

     Everyday say Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ and let the devil know I am covered by the blood of Jesus that cleanseth me from all sin, overcomes and defeats you devil, and evil must pass over me. You will feel the blood of Jesus take away all guilt from your sins and be able to boldly enter the throne of God by faith in heaven to make requests for your prayers.  



     2) READ AND MEMORIZE THE WORD OF GOD DAILY TO STAY CLEAN

     The next way to stay clean after salvation is to daily read and memorize the Word of God. The following scriptures promise us that the Word of God will wash us and keep us clean. Jesus said at John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you. And Ephesians 5:26 promises That He (Jesus) might sanctify and cleanse it (the church) with the washing of water by the Word. 

     Now why should anyone read and memorize the bible and stay clean? People should deny sin and stay clean because it just feels good to be clean. It feels better to be clean than be filthy and living in sin. When we are clean with Jesus it makes us happy with peace and strength. Try it once. Just listen to some blessed preaching on the internet or at your church and you will experience peace, joy, and happiness.

     Most people bathe or shower every day early in the morning to avoid stinking and being offensive to everyone around them. If anyone bathed or showered only once a week or once a month, they'd stink and offend many people around them. Also, they'd feel dirty, lousy,and filthy and be a bad witness to everyone. 

     Now friends, not only do we need to daily cleanse our outward bodies, but we also need to cleanse our inward bodies by daily reading and memorizing the bible with the water of the Word. When anyone just listens to preaching (even if you can't remember the scriptures) the water of the Word will flow over you and make you feel good with great joy and peace.

     Most people bath or shower every day. But most people don't read the bible every day to stay clean and stop sinning. If anyone tells you I haven't read or even thought about the bible for years, they are a bad witness and are offensive like a person that has not bathed for years. But, when anyone daily reads and memorizes the bible, they are a joy to be around and their peace can be felt by everyone around them. 

     It's good to read and memorize the bible daily because it helps us stay clean by revealing sins that need to be washed and stopped. The bible teaches us how to live pure, holy, and sanctified lives for Jesus. Sometimes, the only way we can be aware of our sins is to have the Word of God correct and reveal sin to our flesh. Hebrews 4:12 promises For the Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit (the Word separates your flesh from your spirit to recognize sins that must be stopped) and of the joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 



3) THE FEAR OF GOD HELPS US TO STAY CLEAN

     When anyone daily reads or memorizes the Word of God, they will learn about the fear of God. It's good to fear God; the fear of the Lord has a cleansing effect and will stop people from sinning so they can stay clean. Psalm 19:9 tell us the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever. And Proverbs 3:7 tell us that when anyone fears the Lord they will depart from evil.

     And the fear of the Lord is not a bad thing. Proverbs 10:27 tells us The fear of the Lord prolongeth days; but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. It's good to stay clean, fear God, and live holy every day. The bible promises power and strength to anyone that daily stays clean and lives holy. Like Jesus, Romans 1:4 promises anyone power if they have a spirit of holiness. The scripture says that Jesus was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.

     Be like King David and determine to stay clean by saying Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart O God and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence and take not thy Holy Spirit from me; restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free Spirit. Jesus will reward us at the bema judgment seat for staying clean with good works when we meet Him after we are caught up in the clouds. It's a blessing to stay clean with good works to widows, orphans, and needy poor people when Jesus rewards us with eternal blessings in heaven. Remember the promise of 2 John 8 Look to yourselves (stay clean with good works) that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. And remember the warning of 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

4) THE LOVE OF GOD HELPS US TO STAY CLEAN

     Finally the love of God will help us stay clean and keep us away from the filthiness of this world. Be like the woman who loved Jesus much by washing His feet with her tears and hair. This woman's great love for Jesus cleansed her of many filthy sins. Jesus spoke about this woman at Luke 7:47 saying Her sins which are many are forgiven; for she loved much, but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

     Friend reading this anywhere, no sin should keep you from coming to Jesus today. According to Revelation 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will (this is for everyone no matter how much sin they've done), let him take the water of life freely.

     You see the love of God occurred when our Lord Jesus died on the cross at calvary. John 15:13 proves this by saying Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. If you ever get a bad thought, just look with your heart at Jesus on the cross and that bad thought will disappear immediately and you will stay clean. In fact, if you look with your heart at Jesus on the cross, it is impossible to think a bad thought. This revelation is stated at 2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.  

     I pray in Jesus name that this little bible study blesses many people all over this earth. Feel free to email Brother Bob Malkin anytime at rz9tlm@gmail.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Who Are The Heroes Of Heaven?



Earthly Heroes Will Be Forgotten
And Are Not Heroes In Heaven

     The heroes on this earth are not the heroes of heaven. The world's heroes can be found at the baseball, basketball, and the hockey hall of fame, the walk of fame in Hollywood, California and Cleveland, Ohio's rock and roll hall of fame. The world admires the greatest hero of basketball Michael Jordan and the greatest hero of hockey Wayne Gretzy. But the bible says that earthly heroes will be forgotten when this earth burns up. Only the heroes of heaven will be remembered and honored.

     2 Peter 3:10 says But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. All the memories of earthly heroes will be burned up and forgotten. The Lord Jesus will create new heavens and a new earth where all the memories of this sinful world will be forgotten. Isaiah 65:17 says For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 

     How blessed to know that we will not remember any bad memories or bad thoughts from this world that won't even come into our mind. This is because the devil is not in the new heavens and new earth. The only thing saints will remember in the new heaven and new earth will be what they did for Jesus. It's like a woman after she has a baby; The woman forgets the suffering and pain of her labor during childbirth and rejoices to see her child. Soon all the saints will forget the sufferings on this fading earth when they see the Lord Jesus and rejoice forevermore  

     And the Word of God will remain forever. Jesus said at Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Therefore, keep reading and memorizing the bible every day and invest your time into the Word that lasts forever.  If anyone tells you that you are too spiritual and talk too much about Jesus, tell them Correction; I need to talk more about Jesus and thanks for the compliment while you leap for Jesus. People are gonna talk about you anyway; Give them something good to talk about while you give them a Forrest Gump and run for Jesus.  

The Heroes Of Heaven 
Soul Winners, Servants, Saints
The Stedfast, The Sufferers


1) Soul Winners Are Heroes Forever In Heaven

     Soul winners will be heroes forever in heaven. This earth admires the stars of sports, Hollywood, and rock and roll that will soon be forgotten. But the bible says that soul winners that help save lost sinners are heroic stars forever honored, rewarded, and remembered in heaven. Daniel 12:3 says And they that be wise (you are wise if you win souls because Proverbs 11:30 says he that winneth souls is wise) shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Let's be stars forever and become soul winners for Jesus that turn many to righteousness instead of the forgotten stars of this fading earth.  

     Get saved today and become a soul winner hero of heaven that will be honored and remembered forevermore. Like Brother Bob, tell people if Jesus asked you why should I let you into heaven; when they say because I'm a good person, go to church, a good Catholic, or I got baptized; Tell them the only way to be saved and go to heaven is to repent, stop sinning, confess Jesus to be your God, and believe that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Tell them only faith in the Lord Jesus and the gospel with the gift of repentance can save anyone. There is no other substitute for salvation.

     Be like the apostle Paul, the angels of heaven, and Jesus by rejoicing every time a new saint repents and get saved. Paul told us at 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? For ye are our glory and joy. And Luke 15:10 tells us that there is joy in the presence of the angels over one sinner that repenteth. 

     Take as many people as you can with you to heaven by being a soul winner. The people that you lead to Jesus will appreciate you during this life on earth. But, boy they'll really appreciate you in heaven. These saved saints will tell the soul winners Thank you for telling me about Jesus and saving my soul from the torments of hell and the lake of fire. When these saints realize that they are not in hell or a burning lake of fire, they'll thank and honor the soul winners forevermore in heaven. The soul winners will be the heroes in heaven honored forevermore. 

     And remember to support financially missionary soul winners that tell people all over this earth in remote countries about the Lord Jesus and save souls. If you support missionaries, when you get to heaven, many saints will tell you thanks for giving money to the missionaries who were able to tell us about the Lord Jesus so we could be saved and be in the peaceful heaven forever. Now this is what I call heroic stuff. 


2) Servants Are Heroes Forever In Heaven

     Next we see that servants are heroes forever in heaven. Jesus is the greatest servant of all time and forevermore. Because Jesus is the greatest servant, Jesus is the greatest hero of heaven, and the name of Jesus is the name above all names. Philippians 2:6 tell us Who (Jesus), being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men; And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

     Because Jesus died on the cross for lost sinners like you and me, now Jesus is honored as the greatest hero of heaven. Philippians 2:9 goes on to list Jesus' reward for being the greatest servant; Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him (Jesus), and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth (even the devil has to bow to Jesus). And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  

     Like Jesus, become a servant and a great honored hero of heaven. Jesus told us at Matthew 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. Jesus also said at Luke 22:26 But he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. In other words, the humble, quiet, unseen servants that helped orphans, widows, and the homeless on this earth will be the honored heroes of heaven forevermore.   


To Be A Good Servant
Quit Crying For Your Rights
Start Embracing Your Responsibilities
Be Last In This Life And Put Others First 

     To become a servant hero of heaven honored forevermore, be last in this life and put others first. When everyone sits down in the kingdom of God, the servants who were last on this earth will become first and the heroes of heaven. Jesus said at Luke 13:29 And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. And behold there are last (the servants for Jesus) which shall be first; and there are first which shall be last.  

     A little obscure unknown old lady that constantly prayed, helped the poor, and won souls to Jesus all her life as a servant will become one of the most honored heroes of heaven. She might not have been known or remembered on this earth; But God will remember and reward her forever in heaven as a blessed hero of heaven. 

     Jesus is gonna say to all the servants for Jesus on this earth that were last and forgotten by the world, send them up to the front to be honored as the greatest heroes in heaven. And Jesus is gonna say to all those that loved the preeminence and limelight of this fading world like Diotrephes (a terrible church member) you go to the back of the line and stay there forever. 

     3 John 9 speaks about Diotrephes saying I write unto the church but Diotrephes who loveth to have the preeminence among them receiveth us not. Jesus is gonna tell Diotrephes you stay in the back of the line forever because you wanted the preeminence and refused to be a servant in my church. Let the unknown servants of the world come up front as honored heroes in heaven because they believed the promise of Luke 14:11: For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Many that are first will be last, but the few that are last will be first. 

3) Saints Are Heroes Forever In Heaven

     Next we learn that saints are heroes forever in heaven. A saint is defined as a sanctified person made holy by salvation. Hebrews 10:10 explains how to become a sanctified saint saying By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. In other words, when anyone gets saved, repents, stops sinning, and believes the Lord Jesus and the gospel, they become a saint. 

     The Catholics got it wrong when they said a saint is someone canonized (declaration that a dead person is a saint) for being a good person all their life that performed two verifiable miracles. Good works don't save anyone and even the devil can perform miracles. The beast and the false prophet in the book of Revelation get power from the devil to cause fire to come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of man. Only repentance and faith in our Lord Jesus and the gospel can save anyone and make them a saint. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.

     OK, the saints are gonna be heroes in heaven when Jesus tells His saints mount up on white horses to overtake, rule, and reign on this earth for 1000 years with Him. Revelation 19:8 describes the saints saying And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white, for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. Then Revelation 19:14 tells us that the saints are the armies of heaven that will rule and reign on the earth saying And the armies which were in heaven followed Him (Jesus) upon white horses clothed in fine linen white and clean.

     And when Jesus returns to this earth on a white horse with his saints, Jesus isn't coming as a shepherd with a rod and a staff; Jesus is coming with a rod of iron to rule as the King of this earth for 1000 glorious years. Revelation 19:15 tells us And out of His (Jesus') mouth goeth a sharp sword that with it He should smite the nations and He shall rule them with a rod of iron and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 

     And the bible says that the saints will be heroes reigning as kings and priests with Jesus on this earth for 1000 years and forevermore in the kingdom of God. Revelation 20:6 promises Blessed and holy is he (the saved saints) that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Change And Decay All Around I See
O Thou That Changest Not; Abide With Me


4) The Stedfast Are Heroes Forever In Heaven

      And the stedfast are heroes forever in heaven. These stedfast saints always pray, always read their bible, always witness and win souls to Jesus, and always attend church. They are not quitters and cowards like Calvinists who won't witness because they think God has already determined (predestined) who will be saved. Tell the calvinist the bible says whosoever will let him take the water of life freely. And what about 1 Timothy 2:4 where Jesus said Who will have all men (not some predestinated selected men) to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 

     Instead of being a calvinist that keeps and cleans aquariums by feeding select predestinated fish, be a soul winner fisher of men that offers salvation to every lost sinner on this earth. There is no such thing as a predestinated sinner; there are predestinated saints. When I go fishing, I fish for anything that bites and offer the bait Jesus to all fish (not just predestinated fish); and when I get the fish in the boat in the live well secure, then the fish are predestinated and saved (they are my property and I know where they are going). 

       Alright, back to my discussion about stedfast saints. Matthew 25:21 promises that the stedfast and faithful saints will be honored as heroes in heaven when Jesus tells them Well done thou good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.

     The people of this world might overlook and forget all your kind deeds for Jesus. But the Lord Jesus remembers everything you do for God. Hebrews 6:10 promises For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love which ye have shewed toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints and do minister. And Jesus told us at 1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

     After reading these blessed promises, decide to be stedfast and faithful for Jesus in everything in this tiny, dinky, short, vapour of life. Don't be sporadic where you start missing church services and stop reading your bible. Be stedfast, keep going to church, keep reading and memorizing your bible, and keep blessing the poor widows and orphans. Jesus will reward you for your faithfulness and make you a ruler over many things. Don't be a quitter that says I used to pray and go to church. Decide to start serving Jesus again and always attend your church services.

     Just keep helping your pastor and church. Keep shoveling the snow off the sidewalks around your church; keep cutting the grass and weeding the flowers around your church; and keep serving at banquets for your church. Don't quit; Say I'm going down with the ship; If I have to I'll be the last one out who locks the doors and shuts the light out, but I'm going down with the church; I'm on the Lord's side.  

     Be stedfast and do a bunch of little things for the church for a long time which will equal a big thing. A stedfast sunday school teacher who taught only 10 different students for twenty years reached thousands for Jesus, and Jesus will reward her faithfulness. DL Moody, one of the greatest preachers in the 1800's that saved thousands in England and America got saved when he heard an unknown little Sunday school teacher at his church.   

5) The Sufferers For Jesus Are Heroes Forever In Heaven

     Finally, the persecuted saints that suffer for our Lord Jesus are heroes forever in heaven. 2 Timothy 2:12 promises If we suffer (for Jesus through persecutions), we shall also reign with Him. And Romans 8:17 promises If so be that we suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together. In other words, if you are verbally assaulted and people call you brainwashed for serving Jesus, rejoice because you are a hero in heaven that will be honored forevermore. 

     Thirty years ago, Brother Bob suffered for our Lord Jesus and was persecuted by his entire jewish family. I went from having millions of dollars to living homeless in a 1978 Dodge Aspen in a Rea and Derrick pharmacy parking lot. My parents told me it's either Jesus or them. I chose Jesus and the Lord Jesus always took care of Brother Bob all these years. I know I will be rewarded in heaven for leaving all the money and fading wealth of this earth to write this book for Jesus and live totally for Jesus. 

     When I was in the parking lot homeless when I called my father for help; my dad hung up the phone and said let Jesus help you. I looked up to heaven and said Jesus you are all I have left; My family and everyone has left me. And I heard Jesus say good now I can help you. And the next day, my little brother found me at the parking lot and gave me a place to live in his apartment. And the next week I got a job that I still work on thirty years later. Truly the bible is true; I've never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread. Remember, if you have Jesus in your life, you are a winner. 1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 

     Check out the following heroes of heaven that suffered for Jesus on this earth. The christians executed and killed in North Korea for owning a bible will be honored as heroes in heaven. And the chinese christians forced by their government to work in sweat shops for fifteen hours a day because they were christians will be honored as heroes in heaven. And the thousands of christians killed by Isis and muslims because they believed in our Lord Jesus will be honored as heroes in heaven. Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

     I pray in Jesus name that this little bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth with great peace, joy, and strength where thousands become saved for our Lord Jesus.

Three Lessons Learned From Plants




Christians Like Plants Daily Need
Light, Heat, And Water

    Today let's learn three lessons from plants to help make us better christians. Studying plants will bless us because christians are like plants according to Psalm 1:3. If we daily read and memorize the bible we shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 

     Since christians are like plants, christians must have the same three things plants need to survive (light, heat, and water). My friend Rebekah Kohl did an experiment with four healthy plants. One plant was placed in a dark room with no light for one month. The second plant was placed in a refrigerator and deprived of heat for one month. The third plant was deprived of water for one month. The fourth plant was given light, heat, and watered for one month. The first three plants slowly died because each of them was deprived of one of the necessary ingredients for plant survival (light, heat, and water). Only the fourth plant lived.

     Christians like plants also daily need light, heat, and water to survive. Let's see how the bible explains how christians can daily receive light, heat, and water. There are many bible scriptures that say the Lord Jesus and the Word of God give christians light, heat, and water daily. Therefore daily look to Jesus crucified and the Word of God to be blessed like the plants. Get saved today, repent, stop sinning, confess Jesus to be your God, and believe that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again to receive everlasting life and peace forevermore. 




1) Christians Like Plants Need Light To Be Blessed

The Three Sources Of Light For Christians Are
The Lord Jesus, The Word Of God, 
And Your Fellow Believers In Jesus At Your Local Church

     Christians like plants daily need light to be blessed and survive. Plants are placed in clear greenhouses so they can receive light to survive. Like plants, christians need to receive light from three sources: First, christians receive light from the Lord Jesus according to John 8:12 where Jesus said I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. Jesus also said at John 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

      Every day allow the light of Jesus to bless you with peace and strength by looking to Jesus crucified. Each day say I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus. Tell the devil daily that the blood of Jesus (the same yesterday, today, and forever) has overcome and defeated you, evil must pass over me, and the blood of Jesus has cleansed me of all my sins. Just keep looking at Jesus crucified every day for light to overcome any darkness in this world. 

     Second, christians receive light from the Word of God according to Psalm 119:105 that says Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Constantly meditate, read, and memorize the bible to receive great peace and strength. Psalm 119:165 promises Great peace have they which love thy law; and nothing shall offend them. Psalm 1 promises that if you memorize and read the bible daily whatever you do will prosper (in other words if you constantly memorize the bible, God will fix every problem in your life and deliver you from all your troubles). 

     Finally, christians receive light from fellow believers in Jesus at their local church according to Philippians 2:15 that says That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world. Attend your local church each week to receive light from your fellow believers that shine the light of Jesus to us through preaching, teaching, and counseling. All christians should shine their lights everywhere to bless people because according to Matthew 5:15 Jesus said Ye are the light of the world; A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.



2) Christians Like Plants Need Heat To Be Blessed

     Christians like plants need heat daily to survive. The bible says christians receive heat from the fire of the Word of God according to Jeremiah 23:29 that says Is not my Word like as a fire? saith the Lord and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces. Also Jeremiah said at Jeremiah 20:9 I will not make mention of Him, nor speak any more in His name. But His Word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

     Let the Word of God be your heat source daily so you can be blessed and survive like plants. According to Psalm 119:11 stay warm and proclaim Thy Word (Lord Jesus) have I hid in mine heart that I might not sin against thee. This is why King David said at Psalm 39:3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing (fervently memorizing God's Word) the fire burned; then spake I with my tongue.

     And don't sin because sin will put out the fire of God. Sin makes people wax cold according to Matthew 24:12 that says And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Stay on fire for God and deny sin daily. Keep leaping for joy and rejoicing when you are persecuted for Jesus. Shout for joy in the nearest Walmart bathroom when people separate from you and want nothing of you because of Jesus. Determine to stay on fire for Jesus and let nothing wax your life cold.

     Christians are like plants and need heat to survive. If I took a plant and deprived it of heat by placing it in a refrigerator all month, the plant would die. It would still die if I took it out of the refrigerator each day and watered it and gave it a little light but put the plant back every night into the refrigerator with no heat.

     Like plants, christians need to daily remain by their heat source (the Word of God). If someone stops reading their bible for weeks and months they will wax cold, wither away, and perish. It's just the natural tendency of anything to cool down; If I turn off my space heater during a cold day, soon my house will cool down.  Therefore, stay warm daily and keep reading and memorizing your bible, while you keep attending your local church to hear God's Word.

     Don't get cold or lukewarm; Instead of being cold as ice, stay hot and on fire for Jesus. Keep witnessing and winning souls to our Lord Jesus. Keep sharing your faith and testimony with everyone. Keep praying for everyone with a mustard seed of faith and rejoice when all your prayers are answered. Don't just talk to people in your church only on Sunday. Show kindness to everyone in your church all week. 

     Stay hot and on fire for Jesus by sending uplifting postcards and notes of kindness to all your brothers and sisters in Jesus all week long. Make encouraging phone calls to your brothers and sisters in the Lord always. Tell everyone I'm praying for you and asking Jesus to bless you; Tell them is there anything I can do to bless you. Can I take you to Cracker Barrel and bless you with a meal? When we fellowship and rejoice with our brothers and sisters in Jesus, we will stay on fire for God with strength, peace, and joy. We are the branches of God and if we rub our branches together during fellowship we'll get a Holy Ghost fire and keep warm. 

     Have compassion and be concerned about people, making a difference. Jude 22 tells us And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. And I pray in Jesus name everyone will obey 1 Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent (defined as red hot) charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. In other words, contribute to the heat of your local church and to everyone around you, so people can grow and be blessed like plants. Decide to obey 1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls to obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently (defined as staying red hot on fire for our Lord Jesus). 




3) Christians Like Plants Need Water To Be Blessed

     Christians like plants daily need water to be blessed and survive. Notice how plants use water and light to create food for survival by photosynthesis. First plants use chlorophyll (a green pigment) to absorb sunlight to convert water from their roots and carbon dioxide from the air into sugar (food for growth) and oxygen. Wow, notice that God made plants to convert light into oxygen so people can breath and survive. Thank you Lord Jesus for your plants that allow us to breath oxygen and live on this earth.

     Like plants, christians need to daily receive their water source (the Word Of God) stated at Ephesians 5:26 That He (Jesus) might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word. And if we daily read and memorize the bible, like plants we will receive food and strength to live.  Notice that the bible also says that the Word of God is our necessary food to survive. Job 23:12 says Neither have I gone back from the commandment of His lips; I have esteemeed the words of His mouth more than my necessary food. And Jeremiah 15:16 tells us Thy words were found and I did eat them; and thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart; for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts.

     And finally note that another source of water for survival is our Lord Jesus. Just look daily to Jesus crucified saying I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus to overcome the devil and survive like the plants. Jesus told us that He was our water source at John 4:13 saying Whosoever drinketh of this water (from Jacob's well) shall thirst again; But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. Plants need water every day to survive. Christians also need to look every day to Jesus crucified to survive. Thank you Lord Jesus for the well of water you've made available to all people that springs up into everlasting life. 

     I pray in Jesus name that this little bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth with peace and great joy. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz9tlm@gmail.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133.
