Everyone, take a good look at the photo of the Rock above and read in your bibles Psalm 18 which reads I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. The Rock you see above is a safety hiding place to protect us all from storms, winds, and any troubles in this life. Now shout and praise Jesus when I tell you all The Rock Is Jesus and Jesus is the safety place. 1 Corinthians 10:4 reads And did all drink the same spiritual drink for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.
Saints all we need daily is with our hearts trust in Jesus and remember Jesus and what Jesus did at the cross. Build your house on the Rock Jesus and the storms and troubles around you won't bother you and you will survive and be blessed through any trouble. Matthew 7:24 says Therefore, whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock; And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not; for it was founded upon a rock.
Saints, now take a close look at the picture above of a coney who is a lot smarter than most people. Open your bibles to Proverbs 30:26 which reads The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks. Like the coney, we all should hide in Jesus the Rock and be safe from troubles around us. My spiritual daddy Brother Carl used to say birds can fly around your head, just don't let em make a nest on you. What Jesus it trying to tell you all is that you can have peace in the midst of a storm with Jesus. Saint reading this I claim in Jesus name that you will abide and do what Psalm 61:2 says which reads From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock (Jesus) that is higher than I.
Now open your bibles to Isaiah 32 and shout praises to Jesus. Let me tell you all that Isaiah 32 is talking about a man and the man is Jesus. Isaiah 32 reads Behold, a King (which is Jesus) shall reign in righteousness, and princes ( Jesus The Prince Of Peace) shall rule in judgment. And a Man (Jesus) shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest (defined as a shelter from the storm); as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. Isaiah proved to us all that with Jesus there is eternal safety and security.
Now saints take a good look at a picture above of a place Brother Bob visited in Glacier National Park in Montana and I was blessed to stand in the valley in the picture and was comforted by the protection of the mountains all around me. Now open your bibles to Psalm 125:2 which reads As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever. You see Jesus is your safety place and Jesus is all you need to be protected. Proverbs 18:10 reads The name of the Lord (Jesus) is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. 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. Saint Jesus surrounds you daily like the mountains in the picture above and protects you daily from all harm. Nothing shall by any means hurt you. A daily benefit we all get in Psalm 103:4 is that Jesus crowneth ( in hebrew is defined as surrounds) thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies.
Another scripture that proves that Jesus surrounds you all daily with lovingkindness and tender mercies is found in Deuteronomy 33:26 which reads There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun (defined as upright one) who rideth upon the heaven in thy help and in His excellency on the sky. The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms and He shall thrust out the enemy from before thee and shall say, Destroy them. If God be for you saint who could be against you.
Now take a good look at the picture above and you might all say what is Brother Bob doing now. Well for twenty years I always wondered what is the definition of the word Buckler. The hebrew definition of the word Buckler is a Shield and Defense. I love the picture above of the buckler shield of faith with the cross as your protection to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Now shout for Jesus and say Thank you Jesus for being my buckler and read Psalm 18:30 which reads As for God, His way is perfect. The Word of the Lord is tried. He is a Buckler to all those that trust in Him. Saint reading this don't be afraid. I claim in Jesus name anyone who reads this blog entry past present and future in Jesus name will receive the promise of Psalm 121 and be preserved and kept alive. Psalm 121:7 reads The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil; He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Now look at the picture above and you all might say wow Brother Bob put an apple tree picture on his blog. Now remember everything on my blog even the apple tree picture above relates to Jesus and will bless you. Open your bibles to Song of Solomon 2:3 which reads As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under His shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. Jesus is the beloved mentioned in the bible verse above and with Jesus you all will find great delight and you can rest in the shadow of Jesus and taste and see that the Lord is gracious. Psalm 91 one of Brother Bob's favorite chapters in the bible says He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him will I trust.
Well to finish this blog entry, take a look above of the beautiful picture of the mother hen with her chicks and open your bibles to Matthew 23:37 which reads O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not. Saints Jesus is like that hen above and constantly watches over you as the Good Shepherd. Luke 15:4 reads What man of you, having 100 sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the 99 in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when He hath found it, He layeth it on His shoulders, rejoicing. Job 4:4 reads Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees. Finally, Psalm 56:3 reads What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
Saints, the response to my blog entries has been tremendous. Currently in just two weeks over 200 people have daily looked at my bible study blog. Continue with my permission to forward this blog everywhere to bless people with the message of our wonderful Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Send me an email anytime at email@example.com or post a comment to these blogs.

Saints, study the picture above and open your bibles to two verses Psalm 8:2 and Matthew 21:16 and with the help of the Holy Ghost we will get the hidden meaning from these scriptures. Psalm 8:2 reads Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. Matthew 21:16 reads And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? Now it's time to piece the two verses together like a puzzle and realize that Jesus told us the correct way to say Psalm 8:2 is Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
Now in the picture above the little child is praising Jesus with a perfect praise and as a result it stills, freezes, prevents and stops the devil. Saints I encourage you to be like this little child and praise Jesus constantly to still, freeze, and prevent the devil from doing any harm around you.
Saints, now lets put the two pictures above of the child and the cartoon character lifting up hands in praise to Jesus together and open our bibles to Psalm 134 which reads Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord. The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion. Now saint since your body is the sanctuary and temple of God according to 1 Corinthians 3:17 which says for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are, stand up right now and lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless Jesus. Thank Jesus for dying for you on the cross and destroying all your problems forever for we are crucified with Christ and according to Hebrews 2:14 when Jesus died on the cross he destroyed the devil and his problems forevermore.
Now the main part of my message today is to realize the promise of Nehemiah 8:10 which states the joy of the Lord is your strength. Keep rejoicing and thanking Jesus constantly to remain strong. You can do this because Jesus stated in John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. Therefore, in Jesus name we all claim today that our strength and joy will remain forever with Jesus and our joy will be full and overflow to bless everyone around us continuously forever.
Now saints study the picture above of a blessed woman named Miriam and read with me in your bibles at Exodus 15:1,20-21 which reads Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
You know what saints Brother Bob's gonna hold a revival meeting one time and when 100's of women come to hear Brother Bob, I'm gonna designate one woman to be like Miriam and I'm gonna have hundreds of women follow this one woman with timbrels and dance for a long time with joy all over the building for Jesus. Wow, we should all be like Moses and Miriam when we get victories in our lives from Jesus. Like Moses and Miriam we should all sing and dance before Jesus and thank him for the victory. When Abraham came back from a victory in battle he met King Melchisedec who was Jesus who had no beginning of days nor end of life and thanked Jesus by breaking the bread and drinking the wine to remember what Jesus did at the cross.
Wow, look at the beautiful picture above of Lake Louise which Brother Bob had the honor of seeing personally in 1999 and turn in your bibles to Isaiah 12:3. Isaiah 12:3 reads Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. The beautiful water pictured above is natural water from Jesus springing up unto everlasting life and not a man made cistern. Jeremiah 2:13 says For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water. In John 4 the woman at the well learned that Jesus could give her living water and she left her waterpot and realized she did not need the man made water at the bottom of the man made well.
Now saints study the picture above of David shouting before the ark of the Lord in just his linen ephod. His wife Michal got angry with David and said David was showing off to the handmaidens. David said Michal I was praising with joy to Jesus and for your information the next time I praise Jesus I'll get baser and uglier for Jesus. Saint don't let anyone stop you from praising Jesus. Brother Bob had a minister one time tell him Brother Bob you talk too much about Jesus. I told him Correction: I need to talk more about Jesus and thanks for the compliment. Other people say Brother Bob aren't you afraid of what people will say when you shout crazy for Jesus. The people might talk about you all day long. Brother Bob says they are gonna talk about me anyway. Give em something good to talk about and do a twirlspin for Jesus like Brother Bob.
My unsaved dad one time said Bobby why do always have to shout for Jesus when you preach. Well saints I encourage you all to write down and remember these scriptures to tell people why you shout for Jesus when they tell you that you make too much noise for Jesus. One of my favorite verses of all time that tells us to shout forevermore for Jesus is Psalm 5:11 which reads But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice; let them EVER SHOUT FOR JOY; because thou defendest them; let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
More verses from the bible that say we should shout for Jesus are Psalm 98:4 which reads Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth, MAKE A LOUD NOISE, and rejoice, and sing praise. Psalm 92 reads It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High. To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night. Psalm 35:27 reads Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause; yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. And finally, Psalm 47:1 says O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
One time Brother Bob was preaching in a hospital and an atheist got mad when I shouted Jesus. When the atheist walked away I shouted really really loud three times you know what I think of that atheist JESUS JESUS JESUS. Well the next week the Columbus police escorted me out of the hospital for shouting for Jesus. Brother Bob shook the dust from his feet and moved on and kept preaching for Jesus. Even the cop apologized for throwing me out of the hospital for Jesus. I rejoice and get happy when people mock the Jesus in me. It just excites me to preach more and more about Jesus.
The one story in the bible that blesses and makes me shout for Jesus when I'm persecuted is in Acts 5:40 when the apostles rejoiced and shouted praises after they were beaten and mocked for preaching 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. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. I remember one time a lady got right in my face and told me how much she hated me and I eyeballed her and told her I love you and Jesus loves you and she had to run from me. Don't return hate with hate. Return love to hate for love puts out the fire of hatred. Proverbs 16:32 reads He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
One final testimony. I remember on a job I had years ago at a church, the boss got mad at me for lifting up Jesus and wrote out a chain of command and put my name below the janitor's name or last on the list. I got happy when I realized the scripture Matthew 19:30 which reads But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. Notice it reads that many in this life are first but they shall be last. But it just says the last which are few shall be first. I knew that even though my name was last on the list below the janitor I was considered first with Jesus and rejoiced.
Wow, look at the picture above of a great story of Bartimaeus who kept shouting and praising Jesus and this persistent joy and praise for Jesus got Bartimaeus healed. Mark 10:46 tells the story which reads And they came to Jericho; and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. And many charged him that he should hold his peace; but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called, And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
The blind man Bartimaeus was persistent in his faith and did not stop calling and praising Jesus even when others around him told him to be quiet. Brother Bob has been in revival meetings and people have told him the lady over there shouts too much for Jesus. Brother Bob says if a lady shouts for Jesus in one of Brother Bob's meetings, I'll tell her to shout louder, because like Bartimeaus the more we praise Jesus the more miracles and healings we will see for Jesus. People tell Brother Bob you are too crazy for Jesus. I tell em Crazy but happy for Jesus. And Brother Bob has lost his mind for Jesus because I no longer have my own mind I have the mind of Christ.
Finally, look above at this awesome picture of Paul and Silas singing and praying at midnight in the jail which caused an earthquake and the prison to be shaken, where immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. Wow, if Paul and Silas could praise Jesus in jail at midnight, we all should praise Jesus at all times with no complaints. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 reads In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Not for everything but in everything give thanks. Remember saint to do Psalm 37:4 which reads Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Be like Paul and Silas above and keep delighting yourself in Jesus and you will in Jesus name receive the desires of your heart.
Saints I'm done with this blog today. The Brother Bob bible study blog is free of charge. Feel free to leave me comments and please forward my blog address www.preachbrotherbob.blogspot.com everywhere to lift up Jesus. Thanks for all your support and praise the name of Jesus.

Saints study the picture above and realize that the Samaritan woman that you see above who was a prostitute and was with five different men, the current man not being her husband, got miraculously saved by Jesus and this prostitute went on to preach to an entire city and won many in the city to Jesus. John 4:16-18 proves the sinful state of the woman as a prostitute and reads Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband. For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband; in that saidst thou truly.
Now look at John 4:28-30,39 which proves that even a sinner prostitute like this samaritan woman can win the lost to Jesus. Remember the most evil sinners of this world make the greatest christians for Jesus. To whom much is forgiven, that person loveth much as shown by Luke 7:47 which reads Wherefore, I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much; but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. Therefore, I speak in Jesus name to the person reading this, if currently you are a thief, criminal, alcoholic, drug addict, prostitute, or just plain wicked, there is hope for you like the woman above and Jesus can save you and use you to win thousands to Jesus.
Remember saints, according to Luke 15:7,10 it reads I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. So remember if you just win one person to Jesus rejoice. Each soul is precious to Jesus. Think about this, I found out that Noah was a preacher of righteousness and preached Jesus for 120 years and won 0 converts. 2 Peter 2:5 confirms this and says And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. Now we all need to be like Noah and even if we win 0 converts keep preaching Jesus and keep busy like Noah for Jesus and stay working on your ark even when the world lies on us and speaks evil of the Jesus in us for many years like Noah.
Now John 4:28-30, 39 reads The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, Come see a man, which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto him. And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on Him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. I love this story where I've seen movies where the samaritan woman leaves the waterpot because she found the true and living water that eternally refreshes which is Jesus. Saint if you are reading this now give your life to Jesus like this samaritan woman and confess Jesus as Lord and repent of your sins and believe in your heart that Jesus rose from the dead and Jesus will save you no matter how wicked you've been.
Revelation 22:17 says And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Right now be like the samaritan woman in the picture above and take the water of life Jesus freely and get saved.
Now study the picture above and notice that the man sitting before Jesus is clothed, looks normal, and looks very kind. Well, do you realize that this man was at one time the maniac of Gadarenes which had devils a long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. This man at one time was so exceeding fierce that no man could pass by him. But you see the man pictured above had a devil called legion cast out of him into swine which went into a lake and were choked. After the man got delivered he immediately put on clothes and covered himself. This proves when we become spiritual we don't have to show off the flesh. There is an inner beauty of Jesus in us that shines brighter than our flesh.
Now, I'm gonna show you all something powerful. The crazy nut who no man could tame became a writer and preacher for Jesus. Look in your bibles at Luke 8:38-39 which reads Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him. Wow, this nut who was at one time worthless to society became a writer and author for Jesus.
Saint if you are reading this and you feel like the world has rejected you and you feel worthless, you are a perfect candidate to be used by Jesus to bless thousands. The world might reject you and toss you aside as nothing but Jesus loves you and needs your service. Look at 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 which reads For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called; 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.
Well, back to the theme of this bible study blog which is Great Sinners who became great preachers for Jesus. Now look at the picture above and study a man named Zacchaeus who was so little that he climbed a sycomore tree to see Jesus. Zacchaeus was one of the most wicked tax collector publicans in the city but one day Zacchaeus repented of his sins and found Jesus. We should all be like Zacchaeus and when Jesus calls us to come to him, we should all like Zacchaeus run to Jesus and not say tomorrow I'll accept Jesus. Hebrews 3:15 reads While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation (which translated means your rebellion).
Over the years I've heard so many people say tomorrow I'll give my life to Jesus. They want to stay in their pleasure of sin which is only for a season according to Hebrews 11:25. But saint I say Today choose Jesus who will give you pleasures forevermore according to Psalm 16:11 which reads Thou wilt shew me the path of life; in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Since Jesus is at the right hand of God, Jesus gives us pleasures for evermore. As a former alcoholic, I've found a pleasure in Jesus that never ends and is so much better than any alcohol I had in the world. Since I've been saved, I've been alcohol free for over 28 years Hallelujah.
Saint, don't be like Pharoah and say tomorrow I'll accept Jesus. Say today right now I'll accept Jesus and stop sinning. Open your bibles to Exodus 8:9-10 which reads And Moses said unto Pharoah, Glory over me; when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only? And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word; that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the Lord our God. Wow, Pharoah had frogs everywhere in the bedchamber, ovens, and kneadingtroughs and wanted to stay in his sin with the frogs for another day. Saint come to Jesus right now and don't stay in your sin like Pharoah. Jesus has so much joy and life and peace to give unto you now.
Now take a look again at Zacchaeus in the picture above and realize that he became a new creature in Jesus when he got saved. Religious fake people got angry at Jesus when Jesus went to go eat and fellowship at Zacchaeus' house who was a former wicked tax collector publican. 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. Jesus changed Zaccheaus and Zaccheaus became a new man.
Now open your bibles and read with me at Luke 19:8 which reads And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. I shouted when I got this revelation. If you owed in taxes to Zaccheaus say $20, Zaccheaus would run to your house and say you don't owe me anything and here's a fourfold blessing of $80 for you to keep. Remember saint all things are possible with Jesus and Jesus can change your enemies and have your enemies be your friends and bless you greatly.
Wow, look at the classic picture I found on the internet of when Saul saw Jesus on his way to Damascus and was blinded and was changed and saved. It's amazing that Jesus could change a murderer like Saul and change Saul into Paul who became one of the most loving persons ever on the face of the earth. I love the story of the picture above in Acts 9:3-6 which reads And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus; and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven; And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest; it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
Now saint if you are reading this, remember as christians we are to forgive our enemies and not be afraid of them when they are new creatures for Jesus. We should forget the wrong that an enemy has done to us and rejoice that that enemy is changed and has found Jesus. After Paul was blinded by Jesus in the picture above Jesus told Ananias to go to Paul and pray that Paul receive his sight. At first Ananias was scared to go to Paul but Jesus rebuked Ananias and told him to go to Paul and forgive Paul and pray for Paul. Acts 9:13 shows this and reads Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem; And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way; for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel; For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my names's sake.
Jesus loves to take the worst sinners murderers, terrorists, and rapists and save them and use them mightily for Jesus. Paul stated he was the chief of the sinners in 1 Timothy 1:15 which reads This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Currently, I regularly write to a former serial killer David Berkowitz who used to be called the Son of Sam and is in prison for life for killing and murdering six young women. David Berkowitz got miraculously saved in 1987 and now is called the Son of Hope and writes a journal daily like the Apostle Paul out of prison and wins thousands to Jesus from his prison cell. Like David Berkowitz, the Apostle Paul became one of the most loving people on the face of the earth and Paul's writings to this day about Jesus are read by thousands from the hand of a former murderer who became so full of Jesus with so much love.
And finally to end up this bible study blog, you can look at the above picture of a great sinner David who became a murderer and is seen in the picture above giving a letter to Uriah the Hittite to have Uriah set in the forefront of the hottest battle that he may be smitten and die. David did this so he could cover up the fact that he caused Uriah's wife Bathsheba to become pregnant. 2 Samuel 11:14 describes the picture above which reads And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah. And he wrote in the letter, saying Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.
But Jesus showed mercy to David and after David was rebuked by the prophet Nathan for killing Uriah, Jesus blessed David and Bathsheba to have Solomon who was blessed to become a great king. Think about this, under the letter David and Bathsheba should have been stoned to death for committing adultery. But when David repented, Jesus forgave David of his sins and blessed him to be a great king and write the wonderful psalms of our bible.
The lesson we should learn from David is in Psalm 32:3-5 showing how we should all repent and confess our sins to obtain mercy from Jesus. The scriptures read When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me, my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid, I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
Saint if you are reading this confess your sins like David and obtain mercy from Jesus and get saved. Don't cover up and hide your sins and die in your sins. In closing read Proverbs 28:13 which says He that covereth his sins shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Notice it is not enough to just confess your sins, also forsake and stop doing the sin. I pray in Jesus name all who read this that Jesus will bless us all to forsake and stop sinning so we can all obtain blessings and life in Jesus.
