Witness And Win Souls In God's Harvest



     Today, Brother Bob wants to remind my friends everywhere to witness and tell lost sinners all over this earth to get saved, repent (decide to stop sinning), and believe that Jesus is God.  And also tell people everywhere that to be saved you must believe the gospel that Jesus died on the cross for them, was buried, and rose again. Just say every day I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus. Tell the devil that the blood of Jesus (the same yesterday, today, and forever) has overcome and defeated you devil, evil must pass over me, and that the blood of Jesus has cleansed me from all my sins.

     Pictured above Psalm 126:5-6 says They that sow in tears shall reap in joy; He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed (The Word of God) shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves (saved saints) with him. In other words we need to cry and weep about the millions of lost souls on this earth that do not know the Lord Jesus. The above scripture promises that if we sow the precious seed (defined as the Word of God at Luke 8:11) and cry out for lost souls to get saved like Brother Bob on this internet, we will reap in joy. Isaiah 58:1 tells us to Cry aloud, spare not and lift up thy voice like a trumpet and shew my people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins.

     We need to quit being so busy and selfishly occupied with our own lives, and start being concerned about the millions of lost sinners around us, witnessing the Lord Jesus and offering salvation to unsaved multitudes all around us. Pictured above, have you told the Fed Ex man about Jesus? Have you told the barber, beautician, the UPS man, the laundry attendant, the grocery store bagger, the waitress, and your next door neighbor about Jesus? Tell people everywhere to get saved, repent, decide to stop sinning, and make Jesus their God and remember daily that Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again.

BLESSED QUESTION TO ASK LOST SINNERS WHEN WITNESSING JESUS

When witnessing to lost sinners ask the following question pictured above
IF GOD ASKED YOU WHY SHOULD I LET YOU INTO HEAVEN,
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

     Most people give the wrong answer to the above question.  Many people will tell you Jesus will let me into heaven because I'm a good person, I go to church, I was baptized, I put money in the offering plate every Sunday and helped the poor, I'm a good Catholic, Muslim or Jehovah Witness, I don't hurt anyone, and I pray all the time. Tell them all these things will send you to hell. The only way God will let you into heaven is if you repent (decide to stop sinning) and make Jesus your God, believing Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. 

     If I walk down a church aisle, shake a six foot spiritual icicle's hand, answer some questions, do some good works, get dunked in the pool, and blend in with the crowd it won't save me. It takes Jesus to save us. Not blood plus water, blood plus works, or blood plus wafers; Only the blood of Jesus plus nothing will save you. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me. Acts 4:12 says Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Finally Hebrews 7:25 tells us Wherefore He (God) is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him (Jesus, the only way to be saved), seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.


     Let's study the two scriptures pictured above. First, take time to say Matthew 9:35 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith He unto His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.  

     Friends, be like Jesus and when you see multitudes of lost sinners around you all over this earth, be moved with compassion because these lost sheep have no shepherd (Jesus) to save them from the troubles of this world. According to the above scripture, God sees a harvest of lost sinners. If you look up the word harvest in greek, God will say it's harvest time to teach lost multitudes how to be saved and gather men into the kingdom of God because lost sinners are ripe and ready to be saved and harvested into God's kingdom.

     We need to pray that Jesus raises up labourers (defined as saints who teach the Lord Jesus to lost sinners) who are not selfish but have compassion and are concerned about lost sinners. 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. James 5:20 tells us Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. 

     And John 4:35 says Say not ye, there are yet four months, and then cometh harvest; behold I say unto you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white (defined as ripe) already to harvest (where men are ready to hear about the Lord Jesus). According to this scripture don't say there are four more months before I need to witness Jesus to lost sinners in God's harvest. Right now, witness Jesus daily to lost sinners (sow the seed Word of God in tears) and God says you will reap with joy as you win multitudes to the Lord Jesus. God promises that we will gather sheaves (defined as bundles of grain or saints that got saved from our witnessing) into the barn garner that is the kingdom of heaven.

     When was the last time you personally witnessed about the Lord Jesus to a lost soul? Are you praying for God to save anyone? Do we have compassion and care about lost souls all around us? We must realize that if we don't witness about the Lord Jesus, millions of souls will perish and go to a devil's hell for all eternity. Friends we need to have a desire to see the unsaved saved; We need to have a prayer list for the unconverted. Daniel 12:3 tells us And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness (save souls) as the stars for ever and ever.

     It's our responsibility, our calling from God, our privilege, our scriptural admonition and declaration to be involved in God's harvest and go out and win lost souls to the Lord Jesus. Jesus said at Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And Jesus also said at Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be witnesses (tell people everywhere about the Lord Jesus) unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

PICTURED ABOVE WE SEE THE VALUE OF A SOUL

A soul is worth more than owning the entire world
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?

DL Moody said he wouldn't talk to a man over five minutes
unless the things of eternity were brought up

     I pray in Jesus name anyone forevermore reading this will become involved in God's harvest and witness everywhere about the Lord Jesus to multitudes of lost souls. When we all get to heaven, the only thing that will matter is what we did for Jesus; all selfish worldly pleasures will fade away.  Proverbs 11:30 says The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that winneth souls is wise. Forgive us Lord Jesus for our coldness, slothfulness, slackness, and lack of a burden to save lost souls.

     And remember that Luke 15:10 says Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God, over one sinner that repenteth. According to this scripture, every saint should win at least one soul to our Lord Jesus every year. When we go to church, instead of worrying about our tie, shoes, belt, haircut, and what other people are saying and wearing, start being concerned about lost souls around you and witness Jesus everywhere. Let's get our faces out of our cellphones, texts, and facebook while we look around with concern for lost sinners around us. 

     We might say like Lot 2 Peter 2:7 We are vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked (lost sinners around us). We are righteous men dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexing our righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds. But, we need to stop being vexed about these lost sinners around us and start having compassion by sharing the Lord Jesus to save lost multitudes. Remember, before we were saved, we were also like these lost souls according to Titus 3:3 foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, we became new creatures as old things were passed away and all things became new where the blood of Jesus washed away all our sins.

     The greatest responsibility ever given to men is to go out into God's harvest and win lost souls to Jesus. Life is empty when people are selfish and spend money only on themselves. Selfish people eventually see a day when they realize their life was worthless where they can't take anything with them to heaven. But, when anyone lives to share the Lord Jesus with lost souls, life has purpose and there is a joy in living. 

     The bible promises that we build up treasure in heaven when we give to the poor. And according to Psalm 41 if we just consider the poor, the Lord will deliver us from trouble, preserve us, keep us alive, bless us, deliver us from our enemies, strengthen us when we are discouraged, and keep us out of a sick bed. Let's all do Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Only what we do for Jesus lasts. I see you all out there rejoicing with your sheaves. Jesus bless you all.

     I enjoyed writing this bible study today that I pray in Jesus name blesses multitudes all over this earth. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime to 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 to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

All About Jesus And The Word


JESUS IN EVERY BOOK OF THE BIBLE

In Genesis-The Word That Created All Things
In The Pentateuch-The Passover Lamb And Every Other Sacrifice
In The Historical Books-The Angel Of The Lord Who Fighteth For Israel
In The Poetical Books-The Rose Of Sharon And The Lily Of The Valley
In The Major Prophets-The Stone Cut Out Without Hands
In The Minor Prophets-The Soon Coming King

In The Gospels-The Lamb Of God Which Taketh Away The Sins Of The World
In Acts-He Is Seated At The Right Hand Of The Father
In The Paulene Epistles-The Purchaser Of Our Salvation And Builder Of His Church
In Hebrews-The One Better Than All Before And Any After
In The Petrene Epistles-The Lively Cornerstone
In John's Epistles-He Is Our Advocate When We Sin
In Jude-The Only Lord God And Our Lord Jesus Christ
In Revelation-He Is The Alpha And Omega, The Beginning And The Ending
He's Everything To You And Me

     Pictured above we see the greatest book called the Bible, The Word Of God who is Jesus. The bible and Jesus is above and beyond all books as the river is beyond the rill in reach, as the sun is above and beyond the candle in brightness, as the steel girder is above and beyond the wisp of straw in strength, as the ocean is beyond the mill pond in treasure and grandeur, and as the grapevine is beyond the bramble in fruitbearing.

     The bible and Jesus is above and beyond all books ever written past, present, and future as Niagara Falls is above and beyond the mill pond in power; as the Sequoia tree is above and beyond the roadside weed in majesty; as the wings of an eagle are beyond the wings of a sparrow in strength; as a tree is beyond a twig in fruitbearing; as a cannon is beyond a popgun in far reaching power; and as a skyscraper is beyond a dugout in height. 

     Song of Solomon 5:10 speaks about Jesus who is the Word of God saying My beloved (Jesus) is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. Jesus proclaimed at Revelation 22:16 I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. According to these two scriptures, if we line up ten thousand stars, Jesus, the bright and morning star is the chiefest and brightest among ten thousand stars. Praise you Lord Jesus you truly are Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.

     Jesus proclaimed at John 17:17 that the Word is truth. The Word of God is not an imaginative fictional novel or phantasmagoric mirage beyond the horizon. Jesus who is the Word is the way, the truth, and the life. Pilate asked Jesus what is truth; Wow, Pilate failed to realize that the Truth Jesus was standing right before him. Right now, unlike Pilate receive the Truth Jesus as your God and get saved. Repent and decide to stop sinning, confess Jesus as your God, and believe daily that Jesus died for you, was buried, and rose again. 

     The Word Jesus will last forever and is the answer. Psalm 119:89 proclaims For ever, O Lord, thy Word is settled in heaven. Psalm 12:6 also says The words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

     Since the beginning of time, many people have tried to remove and eliminate any memory of the bible. But the bible and Jesus have survived and will remain forever billions of years into the future. No enemy will ever steal one flower from the bible's wondrous garden; dilute one drop of honey from the bible's abundant hive; break one string on its thousand string harp; drown one sweet word in infidel ink; make dim one ray of its perpetual light; stay its triumphant progress by so much as one step; or shorten its life by so much as one brief hour. 

THE BIBLE WILL ALWAYS BE THE PILGRIM'S STAFF, THE PILOT'S COMPASS,
AND THE SOLDIER'S SWORD, AND MORE BESIDES FOREVERMORE
BLESS YOU LORD JESUS FOR YOUR WORD


COMPARING THE SUBLIMITY (EXCELLENCY) AND SIMPLICITY OF JESUS 

     Next, let's see that Jesus is both the sublime excellent God and also a man sharing our experiences on this earth. Jesus is God come in the flesh. Hebrews 2:14 says Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. 

     Even though Jesus was the mighty God, He loved lost sinners and became a man to destroy the devil and give everyone an opportunity to be saved and live in peace forevermore. Isaiah 57:15 explained this by saying For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy (Jesus), I dwell in the high and holy place with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit; to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

     Note the following comparisons about how Jesus is both sublime (excellent) with simplicity. Jesus is sublime as an eagle flying peacefully beyond the reach of anyone, yet having the simplicity of a little sparrow that twitters under the eaves, or plays with its mates on the sidewalks by a village street. Jesus is sublime as a mighty ocean at full tide, yet is softly tender as ripples that whisper on a calm beach. Jesus is sublime as a mountain grandeur, yet has the simplicity of modest violets blooming in the valley.

     How excellent was Jesus when as a babe heaven hung out its brightest star to mark His birthplace. How excellent was Jesus when He startled the wise men in the temple being only twelve years old. How excellent was Jesus when He spoke so marvelously that officers sent to arrest Him returned without Him, giving as their excuse for not bringing Him "Never man spake like this man".

     How excellent was Jesus when He arose from sleep in a tempest tossed boat and made the raging waves to lie down like sleeping dogs and the winds howling like maniacs to whisper likes babes softly in sleep. How excellent was Jesus when He walked on the waves as though they were floors of opal and amethyst and emeralds.

     How excellent was Jesus when leprosy fled from His presence where twisted limbs became straight at just His touch. How excellent was Jesus when He refused to come down from the cross. How excellent was Jesus when He arose from the dead, the firstfruits of them that slept. And how excellent was Jesus when He entered the upper room, the doors being shut where the disciples were for fear of the Jews and said Peace be unto you.

     Even though Jesus was so excellent, Jesus loved lost sinners and became a man who died on the cross to save lost sinners. Think about this: Jesus as God could have remained in heaven and let all mankind be lost and go to hell. But God loved us all and sent His Son Jesus to this earth to suffer and die on a cross and give anyone the opportunity to be saved with peace forevermore.

     Even though Jesus was so excellent, Jesus humbled Himself and said to little Zaccheaus in the tree top, Come down for today I must abide in thine house. When Jesus met the wicked publican tax collector Matthew, He humbly said Follow me. When Jesus called the disciples James, Peter, and John, He humbly said Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And Jesus humbly made Himself known to the two men on the road to Emmaus by just breaking bread.

JESUS CHRIST AT CHRISTUS GARDENS IN GATLINBURG TENNESSEE

     Pictured above we see one of the tourist attractions in Gatlinburg, Tennessee (A sculpture of Jesus Christ at Christus Gardens). Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a tourist city by the Smokey Mountains with a population of only 1764 people, having many beautiful scenes to photograph. Note though that the most photographed site in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is the sculptured head of Jesus Christ pictured above in Christus gardens. 

     This spectacular marble figure of the Saviour Jesus Christ is sculpted in such a way that the eyes appear to look in every direction. Regardless of where you stand, Jesus' eyes are upon you. Do a search on youtube for Jesus Christ at Christus gardens Gatlinburg, Tennessee and notice how Jesus' eyes always watch you. 

     Hebrews 4:13 says Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His (Jesus) sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with which we have to do. Proverbs 15:3 says The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Luke 12:2 says For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be made known. Therefore, whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. 

     His eyes are on the sparrow and He watches over me. Matthew 10:29 says Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. Then Luke 12:6 goes on to say Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Friends everywhere, Jesus watches over you and will always take care of you. If Jesus cares for the little sparrows, Jesus will care for you friend.

     I pray in Jesus name this little bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth with peace.

Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Don't Be A Fence Straddler



     Today, Brother Bob says don't be a fence straddler. Decide now to get saved, stop sinning, and make Jesus your God. Jesus said at Luke 11:23 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. Either you're with Jesus as your God or you're against Jesus as your God. God rejects fence straddlers who make no decision to follow Jesus as God. Pictured above Jesus said at Revelation 3:15-16 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

     Also pictured above, we see that Elijah told the people to make a choice to follow God and not be fence straddlers. Elijah said at 1 Kings 18:19 Now therefore send and gather to me all Israel unto Mount Carmel and the prophets of Baal 450, and the prophets of the groves 400, which eat at Jezebel's table. So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel and gathered the prophets together unto Mount Carmel. And Elijah came unto all the people and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God follow Him, but if Baal, then follow him; (Now note the people's response who were fence straddlers) And the people answered him not a word.

     The people around Elijah on Mount Carmel were fence straddlers who answered him not a word. They didn't say we believe the God of Elijah is God. They didn't say we believe that Baal the god of Jezebel is God. These fence straddlers are like many people today in church who are silent about choosing between Jesus or the devil. When you preach to these fence straddlers you can't even get an expression out of them.

     Most of these fence straddlers come to church on Sunday and sin all week long. They want to have Jesus and continue to fornicate, drink, smoke, and love this world all week long. It doesn't work like this to get saved. Friend anywhere, to be saved you must repent and decide to stop sinning. Repentance is a requirement for salvation. 2 Corinthians 7:10 tells us For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of; but the sorrow of the world worketh death. Jesus said at Luke 13:3 Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

     You can't even look to Jesus and get saved until you first decide to repent and stop sinning. Paul explained this at Acts 20:20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews and also to the Greeks, (first) repentance toward God, (and then) faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. You can't even approach Jesus until you first decide to stop fornicating, drinking, smoking, and loving this world.

     Pictured above, Ahab and his fence straddler followers resisted Elijah who told the people to repent. 1 Kings 18:17 says And it came to pass when Ahab saw Elijah that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel.  Today, if you are a preacher like Elijah who tells people to repent and make Jesus their God, you'll be despised by modern day Ahabs and Jezebels. Some Jehoshaphats will want to hear you once and a while.

     These modern day Ahabs and Jezebels want preachers that will tickle their ears and give them a soft smooth sermon without mentioning repentance from sin. We need to be like Elijah and speak the whole counsel of God and obey Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

     Notice how Elijah answered Ahab at 1 Kings 18:18. Elijah was not a nimby pamby, tweedle dee tweedle dum, pussy footin compromisin, white washing back scratching, ear tickling soft soaping, tiptoein through the tulips, lovey dovey, feel good preacher telling Ahab I've been on a vacation away for three and half years and if I've caused you any inconvenience by stopping the rain, I want to apologize to you and Samaria. No, Elijah spoke the truth and rebuked Ahab saying I have not troubled Israel, but thou and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim.

     Like Elijah we need to tell fence straddlers Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord choose you this day whom ye will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land ye dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

     Personally, I admire anyone who quits being a fence straddler and speaks out to people all over this earth to repent and make Jesus their God. We need to have no shame in our game about Jesus. Jesus said at Matthew 10:32 Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

     Unfortunately today we have too many fence straddlers that make no decision to accept or deny Jesus. These fence straddlers are like a flea; when you put a finger on them they jump here and then they jump there; You don't know where they are and you don't know what they stand for; You don't know whether they are for you or against you; You don't know whether they're gonna vote for it or against it; When they're with you they're all for you, but when they leave you they're all against you.

     Friends we need to make a decision now to stop sinning and follow the Lord Jesus. Let's quit our nimby pamby, wimpy washy, tweedle dee, on again off again shenanigan stuff. Choose today whether you're gonna be wheat or a tare; whether you're gonna be a good fish or a bad fish; whether you're gonna be a sheep or a goat; whether you're gonna be on the Lord's side or on the devil's side.

     Pictured above we see what happened to the fence straddlers who lived during Noah's time and rejected God. Noah preached 120 years and warned these fence straddlers to get into the ark of safety to escape the flood. All these fence straddlers thought they were alright until God slammed the door shut on the ark and all the fence straddlers perished.

     It made all the difference where you were when the flood came during Noah's time. A choice had to be made to accept or deny Noah. It made all the difference whether you were inside or outside of the ark; whether you were with Noah or without Noah; and which side of the ark's door you were on.

     Nothing's changed today. Luke 17:26 tells us And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. Today, people need to choose to repent and make Jesus their God and not be fence straddlers making no decisions. Either you are a sheep on God's right hand saved or a goat on God's left hand perishing; You can't play the game from both ends of the field. If you don't make a choice to repent and make Jesus your God, you will perish in the lake of fire.

     Pictured above we remember when God said on the first night of passover when I see the blood (of the Lamb Jesus) on the doorpost and on the upper lintel, I will pass over you. God didn't say when I see your bank account; when I see whether you're a Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Catholic, Jew, Southern Baptist or an Independent Missionary Baptist; God didn't pass through Goshen and Egypt looking for peoples' denominational relationships; God passed through the land looking for the blood of the Lamb Jesus.

     And it made all the difference whether or not you were behind the Lamb's blood in Goshen Israel. All the firstborn of the fence straddlers who did not choose to get behind the blood of the Lamb perished in Egypt. Egypt represented the dark world and Goshen Israel represented the light Jesus. It made all the difference whether you were in Goshen or in Egypt. There was light in all the land of Goshen but there was darkness throughout the land of Egypt; such darkness as could be felt.

     Today we must choose to leave Egypt and this dark world that blinds people's minds and choose to live in Goshen with our Lord Jesus in His light where we will be able to understand the marvelous truths of God's Word. In Goshen our eyes will be opened to understand sanctification, separation, service, and security. Today, like in the days of Moses, don't be a fence straddler; choose to live with Jesus in the land of Goshen (with light, love, and life) don't live in this dark world of Egypt (with darkness, death, and depression).

     Finally, note that it was important to not be a fence straddler during Rahab's time pictured above. Several spies told Rahab that her house with a scarlet thread (representing the blood of Jesus) was safe from destruction in Jericho. If people chose to live in Rahab's home during Joshua's war against Jericho they would be saved. And all the fence straddlers who chose to live in any other home in Jericho perished.

     It made all the difference between life and death whether you were in Rahab's house or whether you were in one of the other homes in Jericho on the day that Joshua and the armies of Israel marched around Jericho. If you were in the finest palace in Jericho and Joshua sounded the rams horns after circling Jericho seven days, every palace in Jericho, even the king's palace perished. Death came to every person in Jericho that was not in Rahab's house behind the scarlet thread (a representation of the saving blood of Jesus Christ).

     Today, like in the times of Rahab, Jesus is saying get covered by the blood of Jesus by faith and overcome the destruction of the devil. Say daily I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus. Tell the devil daily the blood of Jesus has defeated and overcome you devil, evil must pass over me, and the blood of Jesus has cleansed me of all my sins. Friends everywhere the blood of Jesus is a fence that keeps out the devil and protects you daily from any harm in this world. If it saved Rahab a harlot, the blood of Jesus will save and cleanse you my friend from all your sins. Be blessed in Jesus name.

     I pray in Jesus name this little 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. Till we all meet again soon. Everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Our Great God Jesus Christ


     Today, let's consider our great God Jesus Christ. Pictured above we see a beautiful rainbow and clouds that Jesus created. Job 26:7 says He (Jesus) stretcheth out the north over the empty place; and hangeth the earth upon nothing; He bindeth up the waters in His thick clouds, and the cloud is not rent under them. Wow, water weighs 800 times more than air; yet it is lifted against the force of gravity, held in suspension above the earth in clouds, moved to definite locations, and brought down as rain.

     How incredible that clouds can hold so much water and not flood this earth. This is because that after Noah was saved from the flood, God promised by a rainbow not to flood this earth. Our God Jesus said at Genesis 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

     After looking at the above picture, only a fool would say God did not create the beautiful rainbow and the clouds that hold large amounts of water without breaking and releasing the floodwaters onto the earth. How heathenish and insane for anyone to say that all things in the world are just the result of a fortuitous concourse of atoms. Friend the bible is the truth and proclaims that our God Jesus created everything at Colossians 1:16 For by Him (Jesus) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by Him, and for Him, and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.

     Pictured above we see that John 1:1 proclaims Jesus to be God. Only a fool would say that Jesus is not God because Psalm 14:1 proclaims The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Let's compare two scriptures from the bible proving that Jesus is the Word and God. First say John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Now let's see who the Word is that is God by saying Revelation 19:13 And He (Jesus) was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of God. Jesus is the Word and Jesus is God. Get saved now and repent, decide to stop sinning, make Jesus your God, and believe daily that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again.

     And here's another scripture proclaiming Jesus to be the true God. Say 1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. In other words, if you want eternal life where you live forever in peace, receive by faith with your heart our God Jesus. How foolish was the atheist that asked the judge to make a holiday celebrating atheists who deny God. The atheist told the judge christians have Christmas and Easter; therefore atheists should be given a day to celebrate atheism. The judge replied, you already have a holiday for atheists called April Fool's Day because the bible says The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

     And what a blessing that Jesus created the stars called Pleiades, Orion, Arcturus, and Mazzaroth pictured above. And beyond this Psalm 147:4 says He (Jesus) telleth the number of the stars, He calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord and of great power; His understanding is infinite. Wow, Jesus knows the names of all the stars and knows the exact number of all the billions of stars in this universe. Only a fool would say that our God Jesus did not create these beautiful stars and galaxies.

     Job asked every person who said there is no God at Job 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleaides (a cluster of stars in heaven)? or loose the bands of Orion (a distant star surrounded by an impenetrable band)? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth (the stars of the zodiac with 36 constellations) in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons (the star over the north pole with his sons which are three little stars in it's tail)? Job answered these questions at Job 9:9 declaring that our God Jesus maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south; which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number. And then Paul said at Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God. How unsearchable are His judgments, and his ways past finding out. For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things, to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

     And think about these facts. No man can guide Arcturus with his sons because this blazing sun, 22 times larger than our sun, moves through space like a rocket gliding forward at over 5000 miles a minute guided only by our God Jesus. And only Jesus could create Orion that is so vast that its glory reaches out some trillion miles in all directions. And our God Jesus also made the milky way that is so big that it would take light one hundred million years to travel from one end of it to the other end.

     And then our God Jesus created this earth with its beautiful high mountains cloaked with clouds and capped with diadems of snow. And then our God Jesus decided to carpet this earth with loveliness by creating grass, herbs, fruitbearing trees, and forests. Right now rejoice and praise our God Jesus as you say Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Also Jesus said at Psalm 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell thee; for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

     Since I have proven today by the bible that Jesus is God; now I will also prove that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one. When you get saved and proclaim Jesus as your God, you also receive the Holy Spirit. Take time to compare two scriptures below that define the words advocate and Comforter to both be parakletos.

     1 John 2:1 says My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate (perakletos) with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And John 14:26 says But the Comforter (perakletos), which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. This proves that when anyone receives our advocate Jesus as God, they also receive the Comforter Spirit at the time of salvation. The advocate Jesus and the Comforter Holy Spirit are one and the same (both defined in greek to be perakletos). In other words the Holy Ghost is Jesus our advocate who defends us from the devil's accusations.

     Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one. If I take three cups and fill them with water, there are three different cups but the same water. If you get Jesus, you have the Father, and also have the Spirit the moment you are saved. You don't have to work after salvation to get the Holy Ghost. Romans 8:9 says But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. It's impossible to have Jesus and not have the Holy Spirit. Salvation is not progressive; Salvation is instant. When anyone receives Jesus, they also receive God and the Spirit at the same time of their salvation.

     I pray in Jesus name that this little bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth.

A Blessed Launch


     Today, Brother Bob asks my friends everywhere what are you willing to do for our Lord Jesus? Are you willing to deny your flesh and everything in this world to reach out to this lost world and save multitudes of sinners? Pictured above Jesus told us to make a blessed launch by saying at Luke 5:4 Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. Be fishers of men and offer salvation everywhere; Tell people everywhere to repent, stop sinning, make Jesus God of their lives, and daily remember that Jesus died on the cross for them, was buried, and rose again. Proverbs 11:30 tells us The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. James 5:20 says Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way, shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

      How far into the deep and out of your comfort zone will you travel to win a lost soul? Jesus as God said at Isaiah 6:8 Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Right now respond and say Here am I (Lord Jesus); send me. Go from timidity to courage, from profession to possession, from contraction and shrinkage to expansion, from much ado about a multitude of small concerns to much interest in the great purpose of winning souls to the Lord Jesus, and from frivolity in the flesh to fervor in the Spirit.

     Friends, I've found that when anyone launches out into the deep with Jesus to win souls, one must totally trust in Jesus (not any person) for everything. So called friends desert us and become enemies, loved ones pass away, and other friends move away. But Jesus is a friend that sticketh closer than any brother and will always be there to bless you. Proverbs 18:24 speaks of a friend that sticketh closer than a brother and this is Jesus. Also Proverbs 3:5 promises Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel (defined as calm your nerves) and marrow to thy bones (defined as refreshment from a cup of cold water).

     Pictured above we see a launch in the wrong direction from the deep waters to the shallows of this world. Acts 27:27 tells us the ship Paul was a prisoner on moved from 20 fathoms to 15 fathoms saying But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria (sea), about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country; And sounded, and found it 20 fathoms, and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it 15 fathoms. Instead christians must move from 15 fathoms to 20 fathoms and launch out in the right direction into the deep to win lost souls everywhere to our Lord Jesus.

     Saints that live daily for Jesus are not descending into this fading world but ascending to blessedness in the eternal peaceful kingdom of God. When a saint gets saved, they begin with emancipation and end with ascension. They begin with a second birth being born again and end with freedom from the second death (the lake of fire). They begin with a quickening from the dead and end with a triumph over death.

     Friend reading this anywhere, Brother Bob encourages you to rise from things terrestial to things celestial; tire of the microscopic and the cheap and hunger for the majestic and the priceless. Lose life's shallow worries and launch out into the deep with visions of multitudes of souls being saved in the unchartered deep. Instead of toying with trivialities, launch out into this lost world with its restless millions waiting in hunger to hear about the Bread of Life (Jesus) and sitting in darkness longing for someone to tell them about the Light (Jesus). Forget the tiddley winking and contemplate the tremendous.

     Pictured above, Elizabeth Prentiss spoke of a blessed launch into the deep when she wrote in her book Stepping Heavenward the blessed saying below:

Once earthly joy I craved
Sought peace and rest
Now thee alone Jesus I seek
Give what is best

     Alfred Tennyson, a great poet of the 1800's also learned to launch out from the shallows to the blessed deep. First at a young age Tennyson wrote O for a man to arise in me, That the man I am may cease to be. But 50 years later Tennyson learned to launch out into the blessed deep and live for the Lord Jesus writing the blessed saying below. 

I have climbed the snows of the age and gaze on the fields of the past
Where I sank with the body at times in the slough of low desire
But I hear no yelp of the beast and the man is quiet at last
As he stands on the heights of life with a glimpse of a height that is higher

     And look at two examples in the bible of great saints that experienced a blessed launch into the deep. Moses, despising ignoble anchorage in Egypt, launched out into the deeps for God, and God enabled him to bring forth mighty laws and a mighty deliverance. David, spurning the shallows, turned his life toward the deeps and by God's guidance, he gave us matchless music and ruled a mighty empire. 

As you launch from the shallows to the blessed deep
Sing the hymn below
Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night
Into thy freedom, gladness, and light
Jesus I come, Jesus I come

Out of my want and into thy wealth
Out of my sickness and into thy health
Out of my sin, and into thy self
Jesus, I come to thee 


     Pictured above the bible encourages us to launch out into the blessed deep and abound sharing the overflowing blessings of the Lord Jesus to multitudes in this fading world. Philippians 1:9 tells us And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment. that ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. 

     Jesus wants us to live an abundant life that bears much fruit reaching out to the depths of this lost world instead of remaining in the shallows of a selfish life where one tragically says the poem below:

I ponder not the farthest reach of yon infinitude, the sea
These ripples on the silver beach trace wonder vast enough for me

     No, Jesus wants us to leave the selfish shallows and experience a blessed launch bearing much fruit into the unknown depths of this world to win lost multitudes to our Lord Jesus. Jesus does not want us to be branches scantily clustered, nor trees sparsely fruited, nor field miserly productive. Jesus tells us at John 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. Jesus also said at John 10:10 that He came that we might have life, and that we might have it more abundantly.

     Jesus always encouraged saints to launch out into the deep to reach lost souls with the blessed gospel all over this earth. Jesus insisted that we go beyond mere requirements saying at Matthew 5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain (two miles). Then Jesus told us to forgive anyone seven times seventy. Brother Bob says friend anywhere Jesus will bless you with the promises listed below if today you launch out into the deep to win the lost to our Lord Jesus and leave your selfish shallows.

Jesus will calm you through any conflict
Jesus will direct you through any doubt
Jesus will fan you through any faintness
Jesus will guide you through any gloom
 Jesus will help you through any hazard
 Jesus will prompt you through any perplexity
 Jesus will be your star through sorrowful nights
      Jesus will be your voice through any violence    

     And pictured above notice how John 15:15 speaks of an ascending scale of blessing for any saint who chooses to launch out into the deep to win souls for Jesus and leave the selfish shallows. John 15:15 says Henceforth, I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what His Lord doeth; but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father, I have made known unto you. Notice the ascending scale of John 15:15 that begins with servantship, growing into friendship, and finally ascending into blessed revelations from God the Father.

     I end today's bible study speaking about a blessed missionary named Robert Moffat pictured above who launched out into the blessed deep to win multitudes of South Africans to our Lord Jesus in the 1800's. Read the story below of how Dr. Robert Moffat's obedience led to the salvation of millions of souls throughout Africa.

     In 1842, Dr. Robert Moffat, the Scottish missionary, returned to England to recruit missionaries to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus to lost sinners in South Africa. One night during a snowstorm in London, Dr. Moffat was greatly disappointed to find only a few women attending a church service he was scheduled to preach. Jesus told Dr. Moffat to preach from Proverbs 8:4 Unto you O men I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. Even though no men were present at this church service, Robert Moffat obeyed Jesus and preached a sermon for men to become missionaries to Africa from Proverbs 8:4.

     As Dr. Moffat said to himself Jesus why would you have me preach a sermon about men to only women, he failed to notice a little boy in the loft of the church who rang the bell. Dr. Moffat was greatly surprised when this little boy came down from the loft at the invitation to be saved and become a missionary to Africa. This little boy came down to the altar, got saved and surrendered his life to go to Africa and preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

     The little boy's name was David Livingstone who won over a million souls to the Lord Jesus throughout Africa during the 1800's. It's a good thing that Robert Moffat obeyed Jesus and preached Proverbs 8:4 about men to save David Livingstone. Because of Dr. Moffat's obedience to preach a message about men to women, David Livingstone got saved and millions in Africa got saved. If Dr. Moffat did not obey Jesus and preached a message for women, millions of souls in Africa would be in hell right now. How important it is to obey Jesus when our flesh, the world, and our surroundings say to move in a different direction. Be like Dr. Moffat and obey Jesus no matter what it looks like and multitudes all over this earth will be blessed. The one soul we reach for Jesus could be a David Livingstone that saves millions to the Lord Jesus.

     I've enjoyed writing this bible study today that I pray in Jesus names blesses multitudes on this earth with great peace.

Avoiding Mediocrity


     Today, Brother Bob encourages my friends everywhere to be magnificent and not mediocre christians. Come out of do littleness and do nothingness into doing much for our Lord Jesus Christ. No more halfway for Jesus but all the way for Jesus. Don't be lazy and waste your life away on selfish desires. Life moves fast; so use each moment to witness and save souls. Tell people everywhere to get saved, repent, stop sinning, make Jesus their God and remember daily that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again.

     Ecclesiastes 9:10 says Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might. When was the last time you shared Jesus with someone and won a soul to our Lord Jesus? Every saint should win at least one soul to our Lord Jesus every year. Luke 15:10 says Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.


    Notice the two pictures above and don't be mediocre like a farmer having modern farming equipment that chose to cut his wheat with only an ancient Babylonian scythe from the Euphrates valley. Avoid mediocrity and laziness by choosing to devote all the time of your life sharing Jesus with lost sinners all over this earth. Avoid being mediocre like a man that plows only 4 furrows when he has 10 furrows to plow. Or like a person that plays only 10 strings on a 1000 string harp.

     Avoid mediocrity like the stenographer with two bright keen eyes and ten super fingers who shuts one eye and only uses three fingers to type. Avoid mediocrity like the owner of a battleship with 24 guns that only uses 5 of these guns to fight the enemy. Avoid mediocrity where when a piano has to be moved in a church, many members volunteer to move only the chair.

Don't Live A Mediocre Life Like Solomon Grundy
Solomon Grundy
Born on Monday
Christened on Tuesday
Married on Wednesday
Sick on Thursday
Worse on Friday
Died on Saturday
Dead on Sunday
Thus ends the life of Solomon Grundy

     Avoid mediocrity and choose to please the Lord Jesus and not man. Colossians 3:23 tells us And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Don't be mediocre and just subdue sparrows and catch rabbits; Become a lion tamer and be willing to reach out to the untamed lost of this world through witnessing about Jesus on this internet or as a missionary to a remote land. 

     Faithfulness needed, we have been false too many times. Heroism needed, we have shown cowardice too many times. Humbleness needed, we have shown pride too many days, forgetting that God resisteth the proud. Volunteers called for, we have served only through conscription and pressing coercion all too often. Applied christianity is needed, but we have been content with implied christianity. Devotional vitality demanded and we have been content with mere formality. Too many men have chosen to become famous worldly giants and have become spiritual pygmies. The wisdom which is earthly, sensual, devilish we have often manifested instead of the true wisdom (Jesus and the Word of God).

     Instead of being only mediocre, choose to live a normal life and grow by shining Jesus brighter and brighter each day of your life. Learn from nature to become better and reach more souls for Jesus each day displaying growth to shine Jesus to this lost world. From the rill (tiny brook) to the river, from the river to the ocean, from the bud to the blossom, from the blossom to the fruit, from the acorn to the oak, from the microscopic cell to the coral reef. Mark 4:28 tells us For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself: first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. Like nature, grow by reading and memorizing the Word of God daily. Psalm 1 promises that God will prosper and fix everything in your life if you daily memorize the scriptures and the Word of God. 

     I pray in Jesus name that like the picture above, our inner brooks of the peace of Jesus break out into flowing rivers that widen into spiritual oceans of living water. Don't just gather mere handfuls of flowers for petty pleasures and personal adornment when there are fields white unto the harvest calling us to bring in the sheaves and save lost souls for Jesus. Psalm 126:6 promises He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed (the Word of God), shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves (souls won to our Lord Jesus) with him.   

     Get out of your personal comfort zone and launch out into the deep for our Lord Jesus to win souls. What are you willing to do today to win souls to our Lord Jesus? Jesus said at Luke 5:4 Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets (to be fishers of men and win souls) for a draught. Don't be content to keep the anchor of your ship voyaging to save lost sinners busier and more overworked than your rudder.

     Avoid mediocrity with much profession oft and little possession oft; measuring inches oft when God demands yards and miles; weighing inches oft when God demands pounds and tons; appearing as platters clean only on the outside, while filthy sinfulness has dominion on the inside. 

     Avoid mediocrity; Don't just use a pushcart when you can use a locomotive. Don't just be a puny pygmy piddling potter clay in the face of peaks when you can be a magnificent blessing for our Lord Jesus. Don't just choose to creep along like a sluggard; choose to lay hold on the plough handles for Jesus and bear much fruit for our Lord Jesus. Jesus told us at Luke 9:62 No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

     Right now say I'm gonna be magnificent and not mediocre for Jesus because John 15:8 says Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruit (not a little bit of fruit) so shall ye be my disciples. Also say Jesus I'm gonna grow up and put away childish mediocre worldly lusts and become your faithful servant because 1 Corinthians 13:11 says When I was  child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Read DL Moody's advice on how to become magnificent instead of mediocre
SAVED AND SAVING BY DL MOODY

     One day I saw a steel engraving that I like very much. I thought it was the finest thing I ever had seen at the time and I bought it. It was a picture of a woman coming out of the water and clinging with both arms to the cross. There she came out of the drowning waves with both arms around the cross, perfectly safe. 

     Afterward, I saw another picture that spoiled this one for me entirely; It was so much more lovely. It was a picture of a person coming out of the dark waters with one arm clinging to the cross and with the other she was lifting some one else out of the waves. This is what I like. Keep a firm hold upon the cross, but always try to rescue another from drowning. Don't just be mediocre and cling to the cross by yourself with both arms. Become magnificent and cling to the cross with one arm, and reach out with your other arm to save lost sinners all over this earth.

     As always, it is a blessing to send these bible studies all over this earth that I pray in Jesus name bless multitudes with peace. 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 in Jesus name.

Revelations From God's Holy Word


     For our first revelation today say James 4:14 pictured above Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. Note that our life on this earth is like a vapour that is seen a moment and then vanisheth away. The time of our life on this earth moves quickly. Therefore make the most of each second of your life to save souls. The bible says that NOW is the time to get saved. 2 Corinthians 6:2 says I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee; behold, now is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation. Get saved today and repent, decide to stop sinning, make Jesus God of your life, and daily remember that Jesus died on the cross for you, was buried, and rose again.

     Make the most of your lives to live for Jesus daily and do not waste your time on fading worldly pleasures. Satisfaction and joy will only occur when we tell people about the Lord Jesus and win souls. I wish I could relive all the times I wasted on worldly pleasures of watching meaningless sporting events and study the treasures from the Word of God that lasts forever. Life on this earth is so short like a thin footprint upon a sea lashed shore; like the stay of a postman; like a glimpse of a passing ship; and like a quick burst of music down a crowded street. Psalm 90:9 says For all our days are passed away in thy wrath; we spend our years as a tale that is told.

THE GREATEST BARRIER TO GETTING PEOPLE SAVED
People are not willing to be saved by God's WAY and TIME
God's WAY is JESUS
God's TIME is NOW 

     Friends everywhere, TODAY NOW is the time to get saved. Hebrews 4:7 says Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts. We are not promised tomorrow and what we do with Jesus on this earth determines where we go forever. There is no purgatory and second chance to repent and be saved after this life on this earth. The rich man in hell had no second chance after he died on this earth; Because he rejected Jesus as God, he could not leave hell and was tormented forevermore. If we repent now on this earth and make Jesus our God, we go to heaven in peace forever. If anyone keeps sinning and denies Jesus as God, when they die on this earth, they go to hell and the lake of fire to be tormented forevermore.

     Unfortunately, multitudes of people say tomorrow I'll get saved while I enjoy sinful worldly pleasures. Tomorrow is the philosophy of fools; the subterfuge (deceit) of procrastinators; the day that never is. Tomorrow is a ship in which many have gone to shipwreck; a lamp that failed and left many in eternal darkness; a key that has locked many in dungeons of despair; and an inexorable (impossible to stop) jailor that has imprisoned many behind hell's bars. Tomorrow is the road that has often led to the house of never. Don't say tomorrow I'll get saved; Say I'll get saved Today NOW.

     The prophet Zechariah told us to get saved NOW at Zechariah 1:4 that says Turn ye NOW from your evil ways and from your evil doings; but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the Lord. Because of the brevity of life and the length of eternity, get saved now today; Because of the horror of hell's infernal drums that beat to the ceaseless groans of the lost who rejected the Lord Jesus amid incessant and unmitigated torment, get saved now today. 

     Just think about the blessedness of heaven where you can go if you get saved now today. Heaven is a place where saved saints shall have an eternity of bliss in Jesus' glorified presence, in a place where there is no unhallowed ambition, no strife, and no sin; where all songs are songs of love; where the trees are trees of life, where there is fulness of joy and pleasures forevermore.

     Today's second revelation is how the Lord Jesus knows everything about this earth and our lives. Pictured above we see that this universe is made of molecules, atoms, protons, neutrons, and electrons. Molecules house atoms that hold protons, neutrons, and electrons. Jesus knows each molecule, atom, proton, neutron, and electron of this universe. How blessed to know that Jesus knows everything in this universe, even to the smallest molecule, atom, proton, neutron, and electron.

     And friends everywhere, how comforting to know that Jesus understands everything about your lives and cares about you. The bible says that Jesus knows the numbers of the hairs on your head, the number of your footsteps, your downsitting and uprising, and all your ways at all times and in all places. Take time to say Psalm 139 and praise Jesus; O Lord thou hast searched me and known me. Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Thou compassest my path and my lying down and art acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain unto it.

     Don't worry about anything friends. If Jesus can see the little sparrows and protect them daily, Jesus will fix every problem in our lives. Matthew 10:29 says Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

     I pray in Jesus name that anyone who forevermore reads this will remember that Jesus lives in them and will arise and say to any storm peace be still creating a great calm. Mark 4:39 tells us And He (Jesus) arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Jesus made the raging waves to lie down like sleeping dogs at His feet and the winds howling like maniacs to whisper like babes softly in sleep.

     For our final revelation today, we see pictured above how several disciples saved Paul's life by lowering him in a basket down a wall to escape from Jews who counselled to kill him. Acts 9:23 says And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him (Paul). But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him. Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket. 

     Now note how important the disciples were to keeping Paul alive. If it wasn't for these disciples lowering Paul down a wall in a basket and saving his life, most of the bible would not have been written by Paul. Friend reading this anywhere, you might feel that you are not that important and do only small things for our Lord Jesus. But like these disciples, you are important whenever you do anything to help the saints of God preach the Lord Jesus to lost sinners.

     Remember we are all one team working for Jesus to save lost sinners all over this earth. A kind word, visiting the sick and afflicted, and assisting the fatherless and widows in their affliction helps save lost souls and shine the Lord Jesus to this lost world. Neighbor, our good works don't save us, but Jesus will reward us at the bema judgment seat for all our kind deeds that lets the world see the Lord Jesus in our lives.


     For my final thought today, take time to read how DL Moody, the greatest preacher of the 1800's who won thousands to our Lord Jesus, got saved. When DL Moody was 18, he applied for a job at a shoe store. The owner of the shoe store told DL Moody that he had to go to church in order to get the job. At first, DL Moody said I don't want to go to church but to get the job DL Moody went to church that Sunday. 

     When DL Moody arrived at church that Sunday morning, he attended sunday school taught by a little unnamed elderly woman. This little old woman taught DL Moody about Jesus and as a result DL Moody got saved and became one the greatest preachers ever, winning millions in the USA and England to the Lord Jesus. Now note that if it wasn't for this little elderly sunday school teacher, DL Moody would not have been saved and millions of lost sinners would have died and went to hell. DL Moody is one of Brother Bob's heros. In the 1800's before planes existed, DL Moody traveled across the Atlantic Ocean several times to England where thousands awaited him on the shores of Great Britain to hear about the Lord Jesus. Millions of sinners in America and England got saved and made Jesus their God because of DL Moody and a little unknown elderly sunday school teacher who loved our Lord Jesus.

      You see how important each one of us is when we share Jesus with this world. Brother Bob might not have his name in lights like this elderly sunday school teacher; but if this book for Jesus can reach one person anywhere on this earth, that person could reach multitudes for Jesus Christ. Right now say with me, it's not about Brother Bob, it's not about DL Moody or his sunday school teacher, and it's not about me, It's all about lifting up the Lord Jesus. Jesus said at John 12:32 And I, if I (Jesus) be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 

     Note DL Moody's blessed saying pictured above: A little faith will bring your soul to heaven, but a lot of faith will bring heaven to your soul. DL Moody also said go to heaven first class by saying Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust, and not be afraid instead of going to heaven second class by saying Psalm 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

What DL Moody saw when he left this earth and entered heaven

     A few hours before entering the homeland, DL Moody caught a glimpse of the glory awaiting him. Awakening from a sleep, he said, Earth recedes, heaven opens before me. If this is death, it is sweet. There is no valley here. God is calling me, and I must go. His son who was standing by his bedside said, No, no, father, you are dreaming.

     No, said Mr. Moody, I am not dreaming: I have been within the gates: I have seen the children's faces. A short time elapsed and then, following what seemed to the family to be the death struggle he spoke again: This is my triumph; this my coronation day. It is glorious.

A Blessed Hymn
Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night
Into thy freedom, gladness, and light
Jesus I come, Jesus I come

Out of my want and into thy wealth
Out of my sickness and into thy health
Out of my sin, and into thy self
Jesus I come to thee
