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.
