Wow, you might all say Brother Bob is at it again with pictures above of a little kid and a stone and a vast amount of sand. As I always say and promise you , it's biblical. Look at the pictures above and open your bibles to Proverbs 27:3 which says A stone is heavy and the sand weighty, but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both. Saints, from experience of walking with Jesus when we serve Jesus the world will be an enemy and sometimes people around us might persecute the Jesus in us and try to make us frustrated and angry. But rejoice when this happens for 1 Peter 4:14 says If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye: for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified. You see be happy for the world speaks evil of Jesus that is in you but on your part you keep glorifying Jesus.
But Brother Bob and Jesus say do not be angry for anger is a wile and trick of the devil. The devil makes one think that their anger is harming their enemy, but this is a lie because anger is harming and weakening the angry person. This is why Jesus tells us all to love our enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you. Unsaved heathen in the world love only those that are friendly to them. But as christians we need to let the world see that we are lights shining in a dark world and love our enemies and not just our friends.
As the above scripture says a fool's wrath and anger is like a heavy weight and burden that can harm someone. But, praise Jesus, saint reading this, Jesus promised us all in Isaiah 61:3 that He would give us the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. In hebrew the garment of praise means a mantle or STRENGTH. I claim forevermore for all who read this in Jesus name that the Lord Jesus replace every person's heaviness with strength and the garment of praise.
Now , I'll prove to you all by the word of God that it is not Jesus' will for you to be angry. From experience, to add years to your life, if someone mistreats or mocks you for Jesus and you feel frustrated, ask Jesus to bless your enemy and begin to say Lord Jesus change my enemy and have them repent and pray blessings for your enemy. Job prayed for his former enemies who became his friends and received from Jesus a doublefold blessing. Job 42:10 says And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
OK here's all the scriptures about not being angry. Ecclesiastes 7:9 says Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry, for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. James 1:20 says For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Ephesians 4:26 says Be ye angry and sin not; let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Brother Bob says if you are going to bed don't lay your head on the pillow if you are angry. Get up and say forgive me Jesus and bless my enemy and don't let the sun go down upon your wrath. I promise you all in Jesus name if you do this burdens and weights will be lifted off you and the peace of Jesus will come upon you all in a great way.
You see 1 Corinthians 1:30 says But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. So if Jesus is righteousness and the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God when someone gets angry, that person turns away from the blessings of Jesus.. Also, Romans 3:23 says For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Ephesians 4:26 says we can get angry only if we sin not. So since we all are sinners needing to be washed by the blood of Jesus we should not be angry. Only Jesus who was perfect and had no sin can be the Judge and get angry.
And one other powerful revelation from 1 Corinthians 1:30 JESUS IS WISDOM. So in the book of proverbs WHEN SOLOMON ASKED FOR WISDOM SOLOMON RECEIVED JESUS. And according to Proverbs 3 Wisdom or JESUS OR THE WORD FOR JESUS IS THE WORD is better than silver, gold, rubies, or anything you could desire. Riches and honour and length of days are with Jesus. Jesus' ways are pleasant and his paths are peace. Proverbs 4:7 tells us Wisdom or Jesus is the principal thing: therefore get widsom or Jesus and with all thy getting get understanding.
OK, here's some more scriptures telling us not be angry. Remember if Jesus says something more than once in the Word take heed to this warning and love your enemies by daily remembering what Jesus did for us on the cross with your hearts by faith. Ephesians 4:31 says Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamour and evil speaking be put away from you with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven. Titus 3:2 says To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. Proverbs 16:32 says He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. 2 Timothy 2:24 one of Brother Bob's all time favorite verses about not arguing when you teach the word of God says And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.
A puritan writer in the 1600's wrote How foolish is the bee that loseth her life and her sting together. She puts another to a little pain, but how dearly doth she pay for it. Ecclesiastes 7:21 says Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken, lest thou hear thy servant curse thee. For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others. If you hear someone speak evil of you be merciful and pray for your enemy for we all have sinned and spoken evil in the past of others and Jesus has forgiven us all and washed us all clean in His precious blood. Leviticus 19:18 says Thou shalt not avenge nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. I am the Lord.
Wow, take a look at the above picture of Judas throwing down the thirty pieces he received for betraying Jesus. Judas was really greedy. For only a measly 30 pieces of silver Judas turned his back and betrayed our God Jesus. A puritan writer wrote in the 1600's what a dreadful trade Judas made when he sold the incomparable Saviour Jesus for a little corruptible silver. All Judas could do with the 30 pieces of silver was throw it away and never use it. Saint reading this take heed to the warning stated at Ecclesiastes 5:10 which reads He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver. Nor he that loveth abundance with increase. This is also vanity. When goods increase, they are increased that eat them, and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes.
Brother Bob will now proceed to show you many scriptures in the Word of God that tell us to not be greedy for money and to bless the poor. Ezekial 7:19 says They shall cast their silver in the street, and their gold shall be removed; their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord; they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels; because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.1 Timothy 6:17 says Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.Proverbs 15:27 says He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house, but he that hateth gifts shall live. Mark 8:36 says For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul.
Brother Bob often thinks about the foolish man in Luke 12:16 who built great barns with much fruit and goods and took his ease and said he could eat drink and be merry. Take a look at God's reply at Luke 12:20 which reads But God said unto him Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee; then whose shall those things be which thou hast provided. Jesus gives us all a warning at Luke 12:15 which we should remember which says And He said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness; for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. Job 27:8 says For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? Proverbs 29:6 reads In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare, but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
Wow take a moment and think and meditate on this gem from Solomon's proverbs about not being greedy and giving your blessings to the poor. Proverbs 28:22 says He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him. Now the next wise proverb from Solomon makes Brother Bob remember some examples of greed that I observed after an older friend of mine had passed away. Right after my 92 year old friend died unknown relatives came out of nowhere to claim the 92 year old woman's possessions and finances. Brother Bob says if you have an older loved one tell them you love them while they are alive and don't just wait to take their money after they die. Proverbs 20:21 says An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning, but the end thereof shall not be blessed. Siblings that fight over an inheritance and finances and cheat their brothers and sisters should pray and change their ways and bless their family with the decedent's possessions and finances and be fair and evenly distribute the inheritance. Proverbs 10:2 tells us Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivereth from death.
Saint reading this meditate on this gem of wisdom from the puritans in the 1600's. How busy are sinners in this world like bees flying to this and that field to carry a little more honey to their hives, though after all their pains and toil, within a few days they must be consumed with flames and leave it to someone else. And have not I more cause to build treasure in heaven and bless the poor to obtain eternal durable riches in the kingdom forevermore. 1 Timothy 6:6 tells us all that But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
OK to close out this weeks bible study blog I give you all a picture of a 99 cent sale tag and tell you all to be fair with your brothers and sisters and bless them with a fair affordable price like 99 cents when you loan or give them a blessed sale. Solomon's proverbs spoke much about this matter. Proverbs 11:1 says A false balance (defined as riches gained by fraud) is abomination to the Lord. But, a just weight is His delight. Jesus in the word tells us to be honest and fair when we do business with our friends and associates. Acts 24:16 says And herein do I exercise myself to have always a conscience void of offence toward God and toward men.
The prophet Amos warned sellers not to be dishonest and sell small ephahs or quantities of goods for a great shekel price or high dollar value. Amos 8:5 says Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit? Because the people during the days of the prophet Amos sold small portions of food for a high price, the result was Amos 8:10 that says And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.
A puritan writer in the 1600's wrote Thou sayest, caveat emptor, let the buyer beware, but Jesus sayeth, caveat venditor, let the seller be careful that he keep a good conscience and not sell defective goods full of flaws.Leviticus 19:35 says Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah (defined as a measure of grain), and a just hin (defined as a measure of liquid) shall ye have. I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt. 1 Corinthians 10:24 tells us Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth. Psalm 106:3 says Blessed are they that keep judgment and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
To end this bible study today, Brother Bob gives you all one of my favorite bible verses of all time at 2 Corinthians 6:8 which is how Brother Bob feels. Brother Bob might not be a famous statesman with his name in lights but thousands of people all over the world know about Brother Bob. I rejoice in this, for I want people everywhere when they read about Brother Bob to see Jesus and not Brother Bob. 2 Corinthians 6:8 reads By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report, as deceivers, and yet true; As unknown, and yet well known. As dying, and behold we live. As chastened and not killed. As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing. As poor, yet making many rich. As having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

You all might say what is Brother Bob up to now with pictures above of a palace and and man building a wall. Well in response as I always say its biblical and the answer is one word NEHEMIAH. We all should be like Nehemiah who was willing to leave the palace as a cupbearer for King Artaxerxes and become a lowly labourer that built a wall for Jerusalem and his people and suffered persecution. This kind of also reminds me of Moses who left the prospect of being Pharoah in Egypt and suffered affliction with his people to lift up the name of Jesus. Hebrews 11:24 says By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharoah's daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
Also, I'm reminded of Esther who was willing to die for Jesus to save her people Israel and go before the king at an improper time according to the law. I love Esther's words at Esther 4:16 which reads Go, gather together all the Jews that are present to Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day; I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not acccording to the law; and if I perish, I perish. Even though Esther was safe in a palace, she was willing to sacrifice her life to save her Jewish people from Haman's law to kill all the Jews. All these stories remind me of Matthew 16:25 which says For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Saint reading this if Jesus tells you to go help a poor widow, orphan, prisoner, or anyone in need, be willing to leave everything to help that poor person and you will lift up the name of Jesus like Esther and Nehemiah.
Saint reading this I ask you to be like Nehemiah and no matter how rich you are in life always remember the poor and take time to remember Jesus. Nehemiah, though he enjoyed much prosperity being in great favour and high honour as the cupbearer for King Artaxerxes, yet even then suffered in the church's sufferings, and was troubled with the church's troubles. Oh how holy was Nehemiah who willingly left a rich pleasant king's court for a ragged and tottered city and forsook the company of illustrious lords for twelve years to toil and moil like a day labourer. When Nehemiah delivered wine to King Artaxerxes, he thought of the water which the poor subjects of Christ drank. And though his own particular condition called him to be merry, yet the sepulchres of his fathers caused him to mourn. As Nehemiah built the wall he was persecuted by Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem but Nehemiah rejoiced in the persecution and finished building the wall.
The story of the two pictures above is at Nehemiah 2 and reads And it came to pass in the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the King that wine was before him; and I took up the wine and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence. Wherefore, the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid and said unto the king. Let the king live forever, why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my father's sepulchres lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire. Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven and I said unto the king, If it please the king and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldst send me unto Judah, unto the city of my father's sepulchres that I may build it.
Another person who to Brother Bob is like Nehemiah who praised Jesus when he was both rich and poor was Job. Job remembered Jesus and praised the Lord daily when he had family, wealth, and many material possessions. Job also praised Jesus when he lost everything and his wife told him to curse God and die. This is stated at Job 2:9 which reads Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? Curse God and die. But, he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God and shall we not receive evil. In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
You all might say wow what is Brother Bob up to now with pictures of a house and a man sitting in an empty wilderness with absolutely nothing around him. Well again this is biblical and reminds Brother Bob of DAVID AND ZIKLAG. The house represents what David owned before it was burnt to nothing by the Amalekites. The man sitting in the empty wilderness reminds me of David returning to Ziklag and finding nothing left of his possesions. But, David still rejoiced in Jesus and encouraged himself in the Lord, even when he lost his house and wives after the Amalekites burned all his possessions and took away his family. David also continued to praise Jesus even when his own depressed soldiers spake of stoning him saying David was responsible for the loss of all their possessions.
The story about David is at 1 Samuel 30:6 and reads And David was greatly distressed. For the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters. BUT, DAVID ENCOURAGED HIMSELF IN THE LORD HIS GOD. Saint reading this, in Jesus name let us all continue to praise Jesus at all times like David and encourage ourselves in Jesus no matter what goes on around us. Brother Bob always says focus daily with your heart on Jesus and the cross and tell the devil I am crucified with Christ and praise Jesus for dying for you and destroying all your problems past present and future on the cross. Hebrews 2:14 and Luke 9:23. Take up your cross daily and know that when Jesus died on the cross he destroyed the devil and your problems forever.
Now I give you a short lesson from one of my favorite books in the bible LAMENTATIONS. The book of Lamentations tells us all to put our total hope in Jesus only, not family, friends, money, or any material possessions. Lamentations 3:24 says THE LORD IS MY PORTION saith my soul, therefore will I hope in Him. Lamentations 3:26 says It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord. Isaiah responded to the hope of the book of Lamentations by stating in Isaiah 25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo this is our God, we have waited for him, and He will save us. This is the Lord. We have waited for Him, we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
Saints take a good look at the wonderful picture of the story of how an angel saved Hagar and Ishmael's lives and provided a well of water for them both to survive. Saint reading this if you feel like no one is around to help you, I claim in Jesus name the presence of a multitude of angels grant you the desires of your heart to lift up the name of Jesus. Hebrews 13:6 says So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Remember saint when man, family, church members, and everyone leaves you, Jesus loves you and will send angels to bless and keep you alive in peace. I claim this in Jesus name for all who read this past present and future. Even though Hagar had no more water in her bottle, Jesus loved her and provided a well for Hagar and Ishmael.
The story about the above picture of Hagar and Ishmael is at Genesis 21:15 and reads And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bow shot; for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept. And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water and gave the lad drink.
Saints getting back to my main message today of praising Jesus at all times. Don't let prosperity cause you to forget Jesus. Even when you are rich and own many material possessions please help the poor and remember Jesus. Solomon gave us all a warning about this at Proverbs 1:32 which reads For the turning away of the simple shall slay them and THE PROSPERITY OF FOOLS SHALL DESTROY THEM. Noah, who had seen the whole world drowned in water, is himself no sooner delivered and becomes drunken with wine. After Lot is delivered from Sodom, he commits incest with his own daughters. Solomon, the wisest king that ever the world had, was as notorious for apostasy as famous for prosperity.
Remember saint, though thy mercies be as the sail and wind to further the vessel of my soul in its heavenly voyage, yet, except thy Spirit O Lord Jesus steer, I will be driven off course. Lord Jesus, in Jesus name to all those who read this, keep us all humble in our highest estate, knowing that thy mere mercy not our merit is the sole cause of all our comforts.
Lord Jesus help us all to be like Obadiah who even though he was a stately governor for Ahab, he feared God greatly and considered the poor when he hid the prophets that Jezebel wanted to kill in a cave and fed them with bread and water. This is stated at 1 Kings 18:3 which reads And Ahab called Obadiah which was the governor of his house. Now Obadiah feared the Lord greatly. For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, that Obadiah took 100 prophets and hid them by 50 in a cave and fed them with bread and water. Also, Lord Jesus help us all to remember how Stephen praised you through all his troubles. Under a shower of stones about Stephen's ears, Stephen still praised Jesus when his eyes beheld one of the greatest sights ever seen by a mortal man. Acts 7:56 records this by saying And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God.
Saints, take a good look at the picture above and lets take time to praise Jesus. The above picture is biblical and represents the monument and stone that Samuel erected to glorify the Lord Jesus. Samuel called the stone Ebenezer which is defined as Hitherto, hath the Lord helped us. So many monuments are erected before buildings to remember people or great men. I'm so glad today on this internet, Brother Bob has posted a stone called Ebenezer to remember Jesus and tell everyone reading this Jesus has helped us all. Glory to the name of Jesus.
The relevent scripture that speaks about Samuel's stone called Ebenezer is at 1 Samuel 7:12 and reads Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpeh and Shen and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto, hath the Lord helped us. We should all like Ezra praise Jesus for his mercy of sparing us from destruction and granting us all eternal life and peace forevermore. Ezra 9:13 reads And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this.
Saints, Europe is now reading Brother Bob's bible studies in Great Britain and Italy. Indonesia also is regularly reading Brother Bob's bible studies. This is what I live for. To see the word of Jesus go all over the world free of charge to encourage and win souls to Jesus forevermore. Angels in heaven rejoice over just one soul that finds Jesus. This gospel will be preached to the ends of the earth and Jesus will return to take us all home to the eternal kingdom where there will be everlasting joy and peace and we'll praise Jesus forevermore. Feel free to contact Brother Bob anytime at email@example.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133.

Saints today Brother Bob wants you to look at the picture above of needy orphans and if Jesus has blessed you remember the poor and needy people all around you. We all are one family. If we remember the poor needy children and widows in their affliction we remember Jesus. James 1:27 says pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this. To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. Proverbs 22:2 says The rich and poor meet together. The Lord is the maker of them all. The number one thing Jesus hates in Proverbs 6:17 that is an abomination to God is a proud look. Jesus tells us not to look down on others and mock the poor. When someone truly gets saved with Jesus, that person becomes a new creation and blesses all people and becomes a servant to any person regardless of their background or nationality.
Proverbs 17:5 tells us that whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his maker. And he that is glad at calamaties shall not be unpunished. James 2:5 tells us Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love Him?
I remember when Brother Bob traveled to Tucson Arizona and went to a humble little Mexican church. The people in the little Mexican church were so poor but wow Jesus was really in that church and Jesus truly is with that poor little Mexican church in Tucson Arizona.
Saints Brother Bob found out that Jesus calls his church the congregation of the poor. Psalm 74:19 reads O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove (defined as God's beloved church) unto the multitude of the wicked. FORGET NOT THE CONGREGATION OF THY POOR FOREVER. Matthew 5:3 says Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Remember in Mark 10:21 Jesus told us all to build up treasure in heaven that will last forever by giving to the poor. For the 28 years that Brother Bob has been saved I've given away most of my money to the poor and Jesus has truly blessed me.
The apostle Paul gave us a warning that when anyone despises the poor, they despise the church. 1 Corinthians 11:22 says What? Have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? OR DESPISE YE THE CHURCH OF GOD AND SHAME THEM THAT HAVE NOT? What shall I say to you? Shall I praise you in this? I praise you not.
Paul defined the true enemies of the preacher that preaches Christ crucified in Philippians 3:18 by saying For many walk of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things. Jesus help us all not to be selfish and fill our own bellies and just mind earthly things and forget the poor and helpless children and widows in affliction. Proverbs 11:30 reads The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life and he that winneth souls is wise. Lord Jesus, in Jesus name help Brother Bob and all who read this forevermore to preach Jesus Christ crucified and win souls to Jesus and not waste our money on big empty buildings and mansions that will burn away. Lets all not end up as Job 15:34 which reads For the congregation of hypocrites shall be desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.
Wow, take a look at the picture above of a little child who is asking for someone to feed him. Saint reading this, this little child like the many people we see everywhere that are hungry and poor need our assistance. Remember, every day we walk around and see others in need, everyone is part of one big family in Jesus. Be like Jesus who loved all nationalities. Jesus blessed the Roman centurion and healed his servant. Jesus blessed the Samaritan woman even though his culture was prejudice and said Jews could not talk to Samaritans. Jesus even ate and personally talked with the chief of the publican sinners Zacchaeus.
Colossians 3:11 reads where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, but CHRIST IS ALL AND IN ALL. This verse shows us all Jesus sees no distinctions among people and is not prejudice. Job was not prejudice and tells employers not to look down on employees. Job 31:13 says If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant when they contended with me, what shall I do when God riseth up? And when He visiteth what shall I answer Him. Did not He that made me in the womb make him? And did not one fashion us in the womb.
Brother Bob tells people, in Jesus sight we are all equal as sinners that need Jesus to wash us all clean in the blood of Jesus. In the world there are distinctions; wealthy, middle class, and the poor and people say they are better than others because of their educational background. But saint reading this in Jesus no one is better than his neighbor. Romans 3:23 reads For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Saint reading this, Jesus is your hope. Repent and confess Jesus as Lord today and believe in your heart Jesus has rose from the dead and Jesus will save you. Then daily remember with your heart Jesus crucified and daily thank Jesus for crucifying and destroying all your fears worries and problems as you tell the devil daily I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST. IT IS FINISHED. Hebrews 2:14.
Jeremiah lamented when the precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, were esteemed by the world as earthen pitchers. Saint reading this you are a precious son of Zion and the world reproaches the Jesus in us and treats us as earthen pitchers instead of fine gold. Jeremiah stated this in Lamentations 4:2 which reads The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter.Luke 16:15 reads And He said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men, but God knoweth your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. Be encouraged saint reading this. 1 Peter 4:14 reads If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you; on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified. You see the world speaks evil of the Jesus in us while on our part we are glorifying Jesus.
But, remember who Jesus chooses as blessed in this world. 1 Corinthians 1:27 reads But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are. That no flesh should glory in His presence.
Wow, you might say why is Brother Bob again posting another picture above of the little boy asking for food to survive. It's because it reminds Brother Bob of the story when David gave bread, water, figs, and raisins to the starving Egyptian servant on the road and because of David's kindness to the Egyptian beggar, that very same Egyptian beggar helped David find the Amalekite camp and recover everything the Amalekites stole from David at Ziklag. So, remember the poor person you help might save your life some day. We all are one family and need each other.
The wonderful story about David helping the starving Egyptian servant is told at 1 Samuel 30:11 and reads And they found an Egyptian in the field and brought him to David and gave him bread and he did eat. And they made him drink water. And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs and two clusters of raisins. And when he had eaten, his spirit came again to him for he had eaten no bread, nor drunk any water, three days and three nights. And David said unto him, To whom belongest thou? And whence art thou? And he said, I am a young man of Egypt, servant to an Amalekite and my master left me because three days ago I fell sick. We made an invasion upon the south of the Cherithites and upon the coasts which belongeth to Judah and upon the south of Caleb and we burned Ziklag with fire. And David said to him, Canst thou bring me down to this company? And he said, Swear unto me by God that thou wilt neither kill me nor deliver me into the hands of my master and I will bring thee down to this company. And when he had brought him down, behold they were spread abroad upon all the earth, eating and drinking and dancing because of all the great spoil. that they had taken out of the land of the Philistines and out of the land of Judah. And David smote them from the twilight even unto the evening of the next day. And there escaped not a man of them, save 400 young men which rode upon camels and fled. And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away and David rescued his two wives.
To end up this weeks bible study, I want you all to look at the above picture of the man on the right who is my good friend David Berkowitz the former Son of Sam who gave his life to the Lord Jesus in 1987. Saint reading this there is hope for you. If Jesus can save David Berkowitz a former serial killer in jail for life who murdered 6 women and burned many buildings, Jesus can save anyone. I write to David Berkowitz regularly and I have to say on the face of the earth, David Berkowitz is one of the most kindest and loving people I ever met. 2 Corinthians 5:17 reads Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are become new. You can view my Jewish friend who loves Jesus now, David Berkowitz's website by left clicking this link http://www.ariseandshine.org/ and then left click David's journal and read some of David's writings. Also take time to watch David Berkowitz's videos of his testimony of how he found Jesus as Lord and got saved. This is very powerful and will strengthen your faith.
David Berkowitz reminds me of a modern day Apostle Paul who writes books and letters for Jesus from prison daily at the Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg NY. When I think of David Berkowitz I think of Onesimus and like Paul telling the master Philemon to receive the prisoner Onesimus as a brother in Jesus, I tell all who read this bible study blog that Brother Bob says everyone receive David Berkowitz as a brother in Jesus and forgive David Berkowitz of all his sins.
The story about Onesimus is at Philemon 10 and reads I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have bogotten in my bonds, which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me. Verse 16 reads Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh and in the Lord. If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account. Remember saints 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. We all should have a forgiving spirit like Paul did for Onesimus and tell others that former sinners have changed and we should accept them in the brethren as beloved family.
Wow, what can Brother Bob say. My book for Jesus has now been read by almost 1000 people worldwide. This is a dream come true. The message of the gospel of Jesus Christ is being sent to the entire world on this internet through the ministry that Jesus has given to Brother Bob. I truly rejoiced the other day when my friends in India and the Netherlands were reading my bible studies for Jesus. Keep in contact everyone and thanks for all the prayers and emails. Feel free to contact Brother Bob anytime. Your friend in Jesus. Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133

Saints, before I start my bible study, I want to rejoice today and tell everyone that Brother Bob's bible study blogs are now being read by around 780 people in the countries of India, the Netherlands, the USA, Canada and many other nations that I'm not aware of. The other day at 4AM India was reading Brother Bob's bible studies. If you are reading this bible study please if Jesus leads, contact Brother Bob's email in your language at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can take your email and translate it and send you back an email in your language so we can lift up Jesus and pray together. We can log onto the website www. worldlingo.com and email messages up to 500 words and understand each other as the website translates our messages into any language of our choice. Or if you like you can contact Brother Bob anytime at Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. I look forward to hearing from my many international friends who have been reading Brother Bob's bible studies.
Saints today I give you all a bible lesson on the importance of obeying and respecting your parents and grandparents. But remember there is one time to disobey an elder. Disobey an elder or any family member that tells you to deny Jesus or what the Word of God teaches. But always show respect for your parents and grandparents but let them know Jesus comes first in your life. In other words, call your parents and grandparents and tell them you love them but remember Jesus comes first above family.
Matthew 10:37 reads He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me. And he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it, and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.If you are reading this and you are so busy with your family that you have taken no time for Jesus, I pray for you in Jesus name that all those who read this will today start to make time for Jesus daily and read your word and pray regularly with your family while you lift up the Lord Jesus.
Deuteronomy 6:6 tells you of a reward you will receive if you share Jesus and the word daily with your family. The scripture reads And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart. And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Verse 10 says And it shall be when the Lord thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildest not, and houses full of all good things which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees which thou plantedst not, when thou shalt have eaten and be full. Then beware let thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
In the above picture the little girl is respecting her grandfather and this makes grandpappy happy. Jesus has so many scriptures in the bible to respect your parents and grandparents. Ephesians 6 says Children obey your parents IN THE LORD for this is right. Notice it says IN THE LORD. So if your parent or grandparent tells you to do something that is not godly do not obey this. My parents told me as an orthodox Jew to deny Jesus. They told me it was either Jesus or them. To the glory of Jesus I disobeyed their wishes and openly confessed Jesus to the world and nations as Lord and God. To this day I still respect my parents and honor them but Jesus comes first in my life. Jesus has blessed me for thirty years and even with hardly no Jewish relatives as friends, Jesus has supplied all my needs and blessed me to give to orphans, widows, and many poor people. Psalm 27:10 says When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
Here's some more scriptures on honoring parents which were shared with me by my friend Vince the busdriver. Every day when I ride home on the COTA bus in Columbus, Vince the busdriver and myself talk about Jesus as we ride down the I70 highway while about 50 people listen to the word of God. Exodus 20:12 says Honour thy father and thy mother that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. 1 Timothy 5 says Rebuke not an elder but intreat him as a father. And the younger men as brethren.Even Jesus himself respected and honored his earthly parents Mary and Joseph. Luke 2:51 says And he went down with them and came to Nazareth AND WAS SUBJECT UNTO THEM. But his mother kept all these sayings in her heart.
Alright, now look closely at the picture below Asa's picture. This is a picture of Jonathan disobeying his father Saul's wishes to kill his friend David. Saul became so furious with rage when Jonathan defended David that he cast a javelin at Jonathan to smite and kill his own son. 1 Samuel 20:27 tells the story and reads And it came to pass on the morrow, which was the second day of the month, that David's place was empty. And Saul said unto Jonathan his son, wherefore cometh not the son of Jesse to meat, neither yesterday, nor today? And Jonathan answered Saul, David earnestly asked leave of me to go to Bethlehem. Then Saul's anger was kindled against Jonathan and he said unto him, Thou son of the perverse rebellious woman, do not I know that thou hast chosen the son of Jesse to thine own confusion and unto the confusion of thy mother's nakedness? For as long as the son of Jesse liveth upon the ground, thou shalt not be established, nor thy kingdom. Wherefore, now send and fetch him unto me, for he shall surely die. And Jonathan answered Saul his father, and said unto him, Wherefore shall he be slain? What hath he done? And Saul cast a javelin at him to smite him, whereby Jonathan knew that it was determined of his father to slay David.
Jonathan disobeyed his father Saul's wishes to kill David and honored the Word of God and Jesus knowing it was wrong to kill David who was innocent and anointed of God. Because Jonathan showed kindness to David and helped David escape from Saul, after Jonathan had died, Jonathan's descendant Mephibosheth was blessed by David and sat and ate regularly with King David at the royal banquet daily. Now my final example of a child that disobeyed his father was when Gideon disobeyed his father Joash and threw down the altar of Baal that his father Joash had made.
The story of Gideon disobeying his father Joash to serve Jesus is recorded at Judges 6:25 and reads And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of 7 years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath and cut down the grove that is by it. Verse 30 says Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it. And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? Will ye save him? He that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning. If he be a god, let him plead for himself because one hath cast down his altar. Therefore, on that day he called him Jerubbal saying, Let Baal plead against him because he hath thrown down his altar.
Wow, Jesus blessed Gideon for disobeying his dad and cutting down the idols of Baal. Even his dad Joash protected Gideon and said let Baal plead for himself and anyone who pleads for Baal will be put to death. Of course Baal did not plead for himself and Gideon's life was spared and Jesus blessed Gideon to win so many battles against the Midianites with just lamps, pitchers, and trumpets. Gideon was willing to lay down his life for Jesus and disobey his ungodly father and Jesus blessed Gideon tremendously. I can relate to Gideon. Thirty years ago Brother Bob left everything, money, family, and all relatives for Jesus and Brother Bob has been tremendously blessed with peace and joy that only Jesus and not this world can supply.
Finally, to end up this week's bible study about obeying and disobeying, please look at the above picture of Daniel refusing to obey the law of the land to stop praying. Brother Bob tells all those reading this bible study pray for your leaders presidents, prime ministers, and kings and respect the government. Pay your taxes, don't steal, be honest towards all people, and don't speed when you drive a car. Obey the laws of the land. BUT, be like Daniel in the above picture and do not obey a law of the land that tells you to deny Jesus and the word of God.
Daniel refused to disobey God's command to pray without ceasing. Daniel was so bold that he opened his window and let everyone see him praying. Daniel was willing to lay down his life for Jesus even when he knew that if he kept praying the law of the land was to throw him to the den of lions. Jesus honored Daniel for disobeying the king's law and delivered Daniel from the lion's den. You can read this story in Daniel 6 of your bibles. And wow, the men that accused Daniel of praying were thrown into the lion's den and lost their lives. The word tells us touch not mine anointed and do my prophets no harm.
My final example of someone who chose to serve Jesus instead of an ungodly law was Peter and John. The rulers told Peter and John it was against the law to mention the name of Jesus and that if Peter and John kept talking about Jesus that Peter and John would be put into prison. Acts 4:18 reads And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
Peter and John disobeyed the law of their government and kept shouting and teaching Jesus. Jesus was so good to Peter and John that after they were thrown into prison for preaching Jesus an angel released them both from prison and told them to keep preaching Jesus everywhere. Saints shout and praise Jesus when you read this scripture of how Peter and John rejoiced for suffering for Jesus. Acts 5:40 reads And to him they agreed; and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. Saint reading this if you have suffered and been persecuted for serving Jesus like the apostles rejoice and leap for joy for I claim in Jesus name great peace and joy be granted unto you forevermore. 2 Timothy 1:12 one of Brother Bob's favorite bible verses reads For the which cause I also suffer these things; nevertheless, I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Saints, thanks for supporting Brother Bob and the book for Jesus continues and this gospel message of Jesus Christ is being sent to all nations to lift up our Lord Jesus. Keep in contact. Your friend in Jesus Brother Bob.

You all might say wow what is Brother Bob up to now with a picture above of a compass with only three directions east, west, and south. Well as I always say it's biblical. I guarantee that after you read this entry the above picture will make you sing praises to Jesus. Open your bibles to Psalm 75:6 and the word says For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge, He putteth down one, and setteth up another. Now notice that Psalm 75:6 only mentions three directions east, west, and south but does not mention NORTH.
OK let me tell you all the revelation the Holy Ghost told Brother Bob about why promotion does not come from the east, west, or south. If you look east or west on this earth to man there is no promotion. Of course if you look south to the devil there definitely is no promotion. But, Brother Bob says through Jesus LOOK UP NORTH TO JESUS and you will definitely be promoted. If we all trust in Jesus daily Jesus will exceedingly abundantly supply all our needs and promote us. I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.
Here's some scriptures about looking north to Jesus for blessings. Psalm 24:7 says Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in . Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah. Psalm 121 says I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 48 says Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness. Beautiful for situation, (defined as the heights), the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion on the sides (defined to the coasts) of the NORTH, the city of the great King.
OK now to the next revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob. If you look above at the letters notice the Hebrew and Greek letters. The old testament is written in Hebrew and the new testament is written in greek. The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Alef and the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Tav. The first letter of the greek alphabet is Alfa or Alpha and the last letter of the greek alphabet is Omega. Now lets see how Revelation 1:8 describes Jesus. The word says I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:8 tells us that Jesus is our Alpha and Omega, our Alef and Tav, our A to Z. In other words, JESUS IS THE WHOLE PACKAGE. EVERYTHING YOU NEED. JESUS PERIOD IS THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING.OK now for the revelation from Jesus given to Brother Bob. Zechariah in the old testament referred to Jesus as Alef Tav. If you look at the hebrew letters to the scripture Zechariah 12:10 you will find Jesus mentioned as the Alef Tav or the Alpha and Omega. Zechariah 12:10 reads And I will pour upon the House of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and of supplications. And they shall look upon ME (ME in hebrew letters in the hebrew bible is listed as Alef Tav which is JESUS) whom they have pierced and they shall mourn for Him as one mourneth for his only Son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
The prophet Amos also had a revelation about Jesus in the old testament at Amos 8:9. Now remember when our Lord Jesus died on the cross, there was darkness over all the land from the sixth to the ninth hour. Now in hebrew time the first hour started at 6AM. So this meant when Jesus died on the cross, there was darkness on a clear day from 12 noon to 3PM. Now praise Jesus as I quote you Amos 8:9 which reads And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day. Wow Amos prophecied and predicted the exact time of darkness at 12 noon when Jesus was crucified and accurately saw the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
OK, now to the third revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob. Take a look at the picture above of the names of the 12 tribes of Israel located on the 12 gates of the kingdom. Now another word for gate is door and Hallelujah Jesus is the door or gate to enter into the kingdom. Now when we all get to the kingdom we will all see the names of the twelve tribes of Israel on three gates in the east, three gates in the west, three gates in the south, and three gates in the north. The revelation Jesus gave Brother Bob is that the Hebrew meaning of each name of the 12 tribes refers to Jesus.
Here is a list of the twelve tribes of Israel and the hebrew definition of the tribe's name. Each definition refers to Jesus. 1) Reuben-Behold A Son (Jesus is the Son of God) 2) Simeon-Heard (Jesus hears us always and blesses us all) 3) Levi-Joined To (We all are Joint Heirs with Jesus) 4) Judah-Praised ( With Jesus There Is Constant Praise) 5) Zebulun-Exalted (Jesus will be exalted as the King of Kings forevermore) 6) Issachar-There is Recompense (Jesus is our Reward Revelation 22:12 Jesus said And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.) 7) Dan-A Judge (Jesus is the Eternal Judge) 8) Gad-Troop (Jesus is the Captain of the Lord's Host defined in hebrew at Joshua 5 as the General or Commander in Chief of the Army or Troop of Warring Angels led by the Archangel Michael) 9) Asher-Happy (Jesus will forevermore make us all happy) 10) Naphtali-Wrestling (Jesus suffered for us all on the cross and obtained eternal life for us all) 11) Joseph-Jehovah Has Added (Jesus will give us all exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think) 12) Benjamin-Son Of the Right Hand (Jesus is exalted forever and sits at the right hand of the Father in the kingdom). In conclusion, Jesus is the way, door, gate, and entrance into the kingdom and each gate in any direction displays Jesus.
OK, fourth revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob. Look up at the two pictures above and say to Jesus Lord Jesus you are worthy to be crowned with many crowns. Like the 24 elders it would be a privilege for Brother Bob to cast my crown before Jesus and sing the old hymn crown Him Lord of Lords. Revelation 19:12 says Jesus will have many crowns like the picture above. The scripture says His eyes were as a flame of fire, AND ON HIS HEAD WERE MANY CROWNS. And He had a name written that no man knew but He Himself. And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood and His name is called the Word of God.
The scripture about the 24 elders is at Revelation 4:10 and reads The four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne and worship Him that liveth forever and ever and cast their crowns before the throne.
A puritan in 1633 also had a revelation of the above pictures and saw the King being crowned when Joab after conquering Rabbah made sure the crown went on King David's head. The puritan wrote Lets all be like Joab, when he took the city of Rabbah with David's soldiers and was willing to have the crown set on King David's head. Likewise, when Jesus hath enabled us all by His Spirit to cast down imaginations and high things that exalted themselves against the knowledge of Him, and to bring into captivity many sinners to the obedience of Christ, that we should all set the crown of glory upon the head of Jesus alone and not suffer the least part of His honour to stick to our fingers.
The puritan was referring to 2 Samuel 12:26 which reads And Joab fought against Rabbah of the children of Ammon, and took the royal city. And Joab sent messengers to David, and said, I have fought against Rabbah and have taken the city of waters. Now therefore gather the rest of the people together, and encamp against the city, and take it. Lest I take the city, and it be called after my name. And David gathered all the people together, and went to Rabbah, and fought against it, and took it. And he took their king's crown from off his head, the weight whereof was a talent of gold with the precious stones. And it was set on David's head and he brought forth the spoil of the city in great abundance.
The above pictures of the crowns and Jesus remind me of Melchizedek which is another name for Jesus. Hebrews 7 defines who Melchizedek is and says For this Melchisedec King of Salem, priest of the most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him. To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being by interpretation King of Righteousness (This is Jesus because according to 1 Corinthians 1:30 God made Jesus to be righteousness) and after that also, King of Salem, which is King of Peace (This is also Jesus because Jesus gives us all peace that passeth understanding). Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God, abideth a priest continually.
Abraham truly gave Jesus a crown and confessed that he won the victory because Jesus died for him at the cross when he and Melchizedek remembered Jesus when they both brought forth bread and wine and celebrated the true passover. Jesus as Melchizedek was having passover with Abraham and told him Abraham do this in remembrance of me. Jesus told Abraham to always daily remember what was accomplished at the cross of calvary. Genesis 14:18 reads And Melchizedek (defined as King of Righteousness) King of Salem brought forth bread and wine. And He was the priest of the most high God. And He blessed him and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth. And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave tithes of all.
To end up this weeks blog I give you the final revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob. It's about Jesus in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks. Revelation 1:12 says And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks. And in the midst of the seven candlesticks, one like unto the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.Now whenever we all see a candle the first thing we think of is to LIGHT the candle. Well Jesus was in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks because Jesus lights the seven golden candlesticks and Jesus is the Light.
Everyone I hope you all enjoy and praise Jesus for this weeks bible study blog. People all over the world are viewing these bible studies and Jesus is being uplifted. Over 700 different people now have read these bible studies. Jesus told us all to go into all the world and preach the gospel.

Sunday, November 13, 2011
Saint reading this take a look at the pictures above of large amounts of money and gold and realize that the money and gold will not deliver you and give you peace. Only Jesus gives us peace. Jesus said in John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Saint take heed to Ezekial's warning about silver and gold at Ezekial 7:19 which reads They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed; their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord; they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels; because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity. 1 Timothy 6:9 warns us all saying But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. If you read down to 1 Timothy 6:17 another warning appears saying Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
Saints read this next verse and shout to Jesus along with Brother Bob. This next verse in Psalm 62:10 was as sweet as honey to my mouth and made me leap for joy and want to go out and just give away money to the homeless. Psalm 62:10 reads Trust not in oppression and become not vain in robbery. IF RICHES INCREASE, SET NOT YOUR HEART UPON THEM. Psalm 37:16 tells us A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. If anyone gets a lot of money and gold as pictured above don't trust in that money or gold to deliver you and give you peace. I'd rather give the money away and see a poor widow smile or a little child happy when Jesus uses me to provide them with a meal. Nothing is greater in this life than the peace Jesus gives us all when we bless others and stop being greedy and selfish.
Phillipians 2:4 says Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Remember Jesus told us all in Mark 10:21 that if we give to the poor we all will have treasure in heaven and no thief can steal this treasure and it will not rust away. Proverbs 23:5 warns about money saying Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings. they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Saint an eagle flies very high and disappears out of sight and Solomon in this proverb is telling us that money silver and gold will all burn and disappear. So like Jesus said give it away to the poor and follow Jesus who will last forever. What does it profit if you gain the whole world and lose your soul. If you try to save your life you will lose it but if you lose your life for Jesus you will find your life.
Here's some scriptures to meditate on from Solomon's proverbs to help us attain to a puritan's dream of 1661 which stated A clear and clean conscience is infinitely better than a full purse. Proverbs 10:22 reads The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it. Proverbs 15:27 reads He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house. But, he that hateth gifts shall live. Proverbs 21:6 says The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.
OK, you might all say what is Brother Bob doing now with pictures above of a partridge and an abandoned egg. All I can say is it's biblical and I'm gonna get you all thinkin about Jesus. Open your bibles to Jeremiah 17:11 which states As the partridge sitteth on eggs and hatcheth them not, so he that getteth riches and not by right shall leave them in the midst of his days and at his end shall be a fool. You can learn from nature and birds like a partridge. It was said in history that partridges would steal the eggs of other birds and sit on them and then abandon them. Jeremiah is warning us all that if anyone obtains money unlawfully or by deceit, he will lose the money, become a fool, and die an early death.
It reminds me of the rich fool who built barns and stored away all his food and said for the rest of his life he could eat drink and be merry. Jesus called him a fool and said at Luke 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee; then whose shall these things be, which thou hast provided?
Solomon also gave us all a warning not to be greedy to gain and love money at Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 which states He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase; this is also vanity. When goods increase, they are increased that eat them; and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes? Jesus also gave a warning to avoid the love of money at Luke 12:15 which states And He said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness; for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
OK now a little lesson on the importance of TEAMWORK. We all need each other and as we pray for each other we keep each other alive. The picture above is Aaron and Hur assisting Moses and holding up his hands in prayer for Joshua so Joshua could get the victory. Exodus 17:11 reads And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua doscomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Saints, Brother Bob tells people if you forget about yourself and pray for others Jesus will heal you. This is proven at James 5:16 where it says pray one for another that you may be healed. Pick up the phone and pray for someone else and Jesus will heal you. Don't be guilty of being selfish in your pleasures and forget others around you who are in need. Psalm 137 tells us By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, WHEN WE REMEMBERED ZION. A puritan writer wrote in 1651 Alas, how foolish is that man who can laugh and jest and be merry in his private cabin as if he were safe and secure, when the ship of the church in which he saileth is in a boisterous and dangerous condition. Don't be like the foolish leader Nero and sing till death while Rome burns and the christians around him sighed.
Saint, Jesus told me to have you get out a pen and paper and write down these scriptures which prove that we all are one family and when we all work together as a team and care for one another Jesus will greatly heal and bless us all. Ecclesiastes 4:12 reads And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Deuteronomy 32:30 reads How should one chase 1000 and two put 10000 to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up. 1 Corinthians 12:18 reads But, now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body. But, now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee, nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. 1 Corinthians 12:26 reads And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it or one member be honoured, all the member rejoice with it. Romans 12:15 reads Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Brother Bob truly believes that the man sick with palsy was healed by the faith of his four friends who lowered him down to Jesus through a broken roof. See saint reading this we all need each other to be blessed and live on this earth for Jesus. This is stated in Mark 2:3 which reads And they come unto Him, bringing one sick of the palsy which was borne of four. And when they could not come nigh unto Him, for the press, they uncovered the roof where He was and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
OK to end up this week's blog look at the picture above and be warned to not be like Dinah pictured above and try to be like the daughters of the Hivites and love the fashions of this world. Genesis 34 tells us all of the mistake that Jacob's daughter Dinah made when she loved the world. Genesis 34 reads And Dinah, the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country saw her, he took her, and lay with her and defiled her. In the picture above Dinah has left her safety zone and walked into the troubled world.
This reminds me of Abner and David. Abner was in a city of refuge and safe from his avenger Joab. But when Joab lied to Abner and Abner went outside the city of refuge to meet Joab at the gate, Joab killed Abner. David was safe in the will of God, but when David was tired of running from Saul, David went away from the safety of Jesus to live with Achish at Ziklag and lost everything to a fire. Saint reading this stay with Jesus. With Jesus we all suffer persecution but it is better to be with Jesus and live and rejoice through the persecutions instead of dying in the world with the pleasure of sin for a season. Thank you Jesus for Romans 8:13 which saved Brother Bob from backsliding and going back to the world. Romans 8:13 reads 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. Saint choose Jesus and live and deny your flesh and this world.
Finally, today saints look at the picture above and be safe and stay in the nest with Jesus. A long time ago Moses gave us a teaching in Deuteronomy that if anyone found birds in a nest to not harm them. But if the bird strayed from the nest, Solomon taught us in the proverbs that the bird wandered from his place and was in the danger of the world's harm. Deuteronomy 22:6 reads If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way, in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam (defined as the mother) sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young. But, thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the young to thee. That it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days. Solomon stated in Proverbs 27:8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.
A puritan in 1649 wrote after he thought about the birds pictured in the nest above; Now God had taken care that none should molest a bird in her nest, there she was safe, but when she begins to wander, then she is in danger, either to be shot by the fowler, or caught in the snare, or made a prey to other ravenous birds. So a man that is diligent in his calling, whilst he is employed therein, is in God's precincts, and so under God's protection. But, when he wandereth abroad from his calling, going out of his bounds to set and talk and be idle, he is a waif (homeless person) and a stray and so falleth to the god of this world. The hotter thy love is to the world, the colder it is to the Lord. When the sap of worldliness is in a man, he will not flame well heavenward.

You might all say what is Brother Bob up to today with pictures above of a woman's mink coat, a Gucci purse, and a hand mirror. Isaiah spoke of these things and warned us that material objects of this world will be taken away and burn up. Only Jesus will last. Heaven and earth shall pass away but the Word Jesus will remain forever. In Isaiah's time Isaiah call purses crisping pins, mink coats for women wimples, and hand mirrors for women were called glasses and tablets.
Open your bibles to Isaiah 3:18 and see what will disappear. Have you spent time today with Jesus or looked at your Word which will last forever. If you are reading this blog praise Jesus for you are taking quality time to meditate and read the word from Brother Bob. Isaiah 3:18 reads In that day, the Lord will take away the bravery (defined as beauty) of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls (defined as a front headband ornament for women), and their round tires (defined as an ornament worn on a woman's neck like a necklace) like the moon. The chains (defined as earrings of pearls) and the bracelets, and the mufflers (defined as a woman's veil), the bonnets (defined as a headdress turban or tiara), and the ornaments of the legs, (defined as anklets), and the headbands and the tablets (defined as hand mirrors for women) and the earrings, the rings and nose jewels, the changeable suits of apparel (defined as stately robes) and the mantles (defined as a man's coat) and the wimples (defined as a woman's coat like a mink coat) and the crisping pins (defined as a woman's purse) the glasses (defined as a woman's hand mirror) and the fine linen and the hoods and the vails.
Brother Bob always tells people if you become more and more like the world you are running from Jesus and losing your anointing. James 4:4 reads Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 1 John 2:15 reads Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. . If you are becoming less and less like the world and don't look like the fashions of this world you are growing in Jesus. Now look at this revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob. Open your bible to Romans 12:2 and the Word will tell you; And be not conformed to this world. The greek definition of this scripture tells us all do not go along with the fashions of this world that will fade away and disappear. People change, fashions change, houses change, cars change, clothes change, leaders change, but Jesus is someone you can trust in and Jesus never changes. Malachi 3:6 reads For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Saint reading this claim Hebrews 13:6 The Lord is my helper I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
An example in the bible of someone who died for loving worldly things was Achan in Joshua 7. Achan got greedy and hid in his tent a goodly babylonish garment, 200 shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold worth 50 shekels. When Joshua found out that because Achan trusted in worldly possessions instead of Jesus, Joshua had Achan killed because he had to get the sin out of the camp. Achan was the reason that Joshua lost the battle in Ai and once sin was out of the camp and Achan was gone, Joshua experienced great victory.
Another biblical example of someone who loved the world above Jesus was Saul who spared the sheep and oxen of the Amalekites along with the Amalekite king Agag. Samuel explained to Saul that since he loved the worldly possesions of the Amalekites more than Jesus, he would lose his anointing and Samuel would choose another king who would be David. What's amazing is that in the end Saul was killed by an Amelakite. Saint reading this choose Jesus over this world and don't be like Saul and let the world be your downfall. Saul spared the worldly Amalekite and the worldly Amalekite killed Saul. 2 Samuel 1:13-14. Saint today now choose Jesus and confess Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and believe Jesus rose from the dead and don't let this wicked world destroy you. Deny this world, don't be like this world, CHOOSE JESUS. Zephaniah 1:8 tells us God or Jesus will punish people who try to be like the fashions of this world. Zephaniah 1:8 reads And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes and the king's children and all such are clothed with strange (defined as foreign worldly outlandish clothing) apparel.
I must testify. Jesus had to correct me for lying on my bed and lounging around till noon on my off work days. Now I get up early always and pray and seek Jesus and ever since the laziness is gone from Brother Bob, I feel so much better and stronger in Jesus. I'll give you two examples of people in the bible who layed on their beds and sinned. First look at David in 2 Samuel 11:2 which reads And it came to pass in an eventide, that DAVID AROSE FROM OFF HIS BED and walked upon the roof of the king's house. And from the roof he saw a woman washing herself and the woman was very beautiful to look upon. You see David layed on his bed all day with an idle mind and when he saw Bathsheba, he committed the two sins or murder and adultery. David became a murderer of Bathsheba's husband Uriah after he got Bathsheba pregnant through adultery and this all occurred because David layed on his bed all day and did not take time for Jesus.
The other example in the bible of someone who layed on his bed all day and was idle and died for his idleness was Ishbosheth. 2 Samuel 4:5 reads And the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, Rechab and Baanah went and came about the heat of the day to the house of Ishbosheth, WHO LAY ON A BED AT NOON. Wow talk about laziness laying on a bed till 12 noon. Forgive me Jesus; Brother Bob has been guilty of this. The scripture reads on And they came thither into the midst of the house as though they would have fetched wheat and they smote him under the fifth rib, and Rechab and Baanah his brother escaped. Isaiah 5:11 reads Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink, that continue until night, till wine inflame them. I used to be a drunk and party all night and then do the wrong thing and sleep until 12 noon. This activity is a fruit of the flesh defined in Galatians 5:21 as revellings which means staying up late in the night with loud music and drinking. With Jesus it is just the opposite. Get at least 7 hours of sleep and rise up early in the morning to pray and worship Jesus and meditate on the Word of Jesus.
OK, study the two pictures above and who would you rather have as your cook. Would you want a famous chef in the top picture to serve you the finest of foods or would you be happy if a raven cooked you some bread and flesh daily like Elijah pictured above. Proverbs 23 warns us all to not be gluttons and just eat all day and not serve Jesus. Proverbs 23 says When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee. And put a knife to thy throat if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties for they are deceitful meat.
Saint reading this always choose to take time for Jesus instead of gorging yourself with food and wasting your time. We all need to eat daily to survive but I've always discovered that to effectively preach, I should not eat a lot right before preaching. Jesus said to cast out demons we must fast and pray. Don't be like Esau who in Hebrews 12 for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears. Also, remember the children of Israel who were not satisfied with the manna and desired quails. The bible says they had to walk a day to gather all the quail and work and even before they could swallow the quail they died on the quail. Saints, lets be satisfied daily with the true manna Jesus and forget about the quails of this world and live for Jesus.
A puritan in the 1600's wrote Elijah was content with a raven for his cook. Daniel fed and thrived upon pulse. He looked fairer by it than those that did eat of the king's fare. John the Baptist was happy and lived upon locusts and wild honey. The apostles had some ears of corn for a sabbath day's dinner and were happy and ignored the pharisees criticism. Lord Jesus help us all to abide by Paul's instructions in 1 Corinthians 9:27 which reads But, I keep under my body and bring it into subjection. Lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
We should all learn from Jesus and the apostles who were humble and ate a meal of simple bread and did not gorge themselves on excess food. Luke 14 says And it came to pass as He went into the house of one of the chief pharisees to eat bread on the sabbath day, that they watched Him. Acts 2:46 reads And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house did eat their meat (which was just the bread of Jesus) with gladness and singleness of heart.
Saint reading this, I hope this little message blessed you today. Remember Jesus alone is all you need and Jesus is better than anything you could ever receive in this world. Thanks for all your support. These messages as always are free of charge and please forward them everywhere to bless others. Keep in contact. Your friend in Jesus.
