Saints, this picture above has one item in it that I want you all to focus on. A SMILE. Jesus wants you to see that this man is Happy. Now open your bibles to Philippians 4:6 which reads Be careful for nothing. But in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Now Hallelujah read this revelation that Jesus gave Brother Bob. Be careful for nothing in greek is defined as not being disturbed, annoyed, or taking thought about the cares of this life like paying bills, getting food, doing the laundry, or any trouble around you in this world. Just pray and thank Jesus for dying on the cross for you and providing everything you need. Don't worry about your everyday needs like food, clothing, and shelter and what will happen tomorrow. Just pray and constantly thank Jesus for dying for us all on the cross and read your word daily. 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.
Jesus tells us all in the above verse to pray and give thanks to Jesus daily and remember with our hearts Jesus Christ crucified when the problems of this life occur around us. Now look again at the man smiling above and remember Jesus does not want us to be angry when we pray or have any bitterness. Anger pushes away Jesus. James 1:20 reads For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Jesus is defined as righteousness in 1 Corinthians 1:30. So, if anyone gets angry with wrath, that person departs from Jesus, for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
Now open your bibles to a discovery for Brother Bob this week at 1 Timothy 2:8 which reads I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. Therefore, when we pray do not be angry. Pray without wrath and doubting. In plain simple terms if you get angry this is not of God. So just don't get angry. To stop your anger when someone is falsely accusing you or yelling in your face, just with your heart look at Jesus on the cross and someone could stand on their head and scream all day but I promise you all with Jesus crucified nothing will bother you. Try this and I guarantee that Jesus will always give you all a peace that passeth all understanding. In fact only Jesus Christ crucified can give anyone peace in this world.
Ephesians 4:26 reads Be ye angry, and sin not. Let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Notice the scripture reads Be ye angry AND not but sin not. Since we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God stated in Romans 3:23 no person except Jesus can get angry. Jesus can get angry and be the judge because Jesus was perfect and had no sin. James 1:19 reads Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. 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.
Anger and bitterness is a waste of energy. Just ask Jesus to bless your enemies. Tell Jesus have my enemy repent and change and live for Jesus. If you go to bed at night and roll around trying to figure out how to defend yourself or get even with your enemy you are working a wrong spirit. If you just say Jesus bless that enemy or change the enemy and have that person repent, you all will feel a release and be able to sleep peacefully every night. Jesus told us to love our enemies to live in peace and avoid sickness and problems. Bitterness causes sickness. Learn the lesson of forgiveness and praying for your enemies to experience constant peace.
The above picture is of little children in Ecuador praying showing us all what we need to do daily and constantly. Brother Bob says when you pray KEEP PRAYING CONSTANTLY. Some people might say if you pray more than once you lack faith. Brother Bob says this does not line up with the word. Jesus tells us all in his word to keep praying and as we keep praying our faith will increase. Colossians 4:2 reads CONTINUE IN PRAYER, and watch in the same with thanksgiving. Luke 11:8 tells us that the man who wanted three loaves from his friend at midnight got his request granted because of his importunity. Importunity means persistent constant asking for something. And importunity appears only once in the Word at Luke 11:8. Brother Bob says P.U.S.H or PRAY UNTIL SOMETHIN HAPPENS. And to finally top this all off, we all should be like Jesus who prayed the same prayer over three times in the Garden of Gethsemene. You can check this out at Matthew 26:44 which reads And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, SAYING THE SAME WORDS.
I preach and tell people to keep praying because I've seen people stop praying and die thinking that they did not want to bother God by asking for something more than once. Brother Bob says don't ever quit. Keep praying and in Jesus name I pray that all who read this and keep praying in Jesus name will see their requests answered quickly in Jesus name. In Matthew 15:21 the Caananite worman got her daughter healed by her persistence in coming to Jesus even after Jesus called her a dog. She said like Brother Bob truth Jesus I am a low down rotten sinner but even the dogs eat the crumbs from the Master's table. Jesus just give us all a crumb of your blessings and we will all praise your holy name. The Shunnamite woman in 2 Kings 4 got her son raised from the dead by her persistence in saying IT IS WELL. She would not stop going to Elisha with her request and because of her faith and persistence and constant prayer got her son raised from the dead.
Now look at the picture above and look at Psalm 95:6 which reads O come let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Now listed below are several great men of the bible who humbled themselves like the little children of Ecuador pictured above and saw themselves as nothing and totally denied themselves before Jesus. 1) ABRAHAM in Genesis 18:27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes. 2) JACOB in Genesis 32:10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies and of all the truth which thou hast showed unto thy servant.
3) JOB in Job 42:5-6 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. 4) DAVID in Psalm 22:6 But I am a worm and no man. A reproach of men and despised of the people.5) ASAPH in Psalm 73:22 So foolish was I and ignorent. I was as a beast before thee. 6) AGUR in Proverbs 30:2 Surely I am more brutish than any man. And have not the understanding of a man. 7) EZRA in Ezra 9:6 And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee my God. For our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. 8) ISAIAH in Isaiah 6:5 Then said I, woe is me! For I am undone because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips for mine eyes have seen the king, the Lord of Hosts.
Now take a good look at the above picture and learn the definition of the word Enhakkore which is where Samson got revived after he slew a thousand men with the jawbone of an ass. In hebrew, Enhakkore is defined as a spring of one calling or the well that appeared when someone prayed. The relevant scripture verse is at Judges 15:19 But God clave an hollow place that was in the jaw, and there came water thereout. And when he had drunk his spirit came again and he revived. Wherefore, he called the name thereof Enhakkore which is in Lehi unto this day. Let's all have Enhakkore constantly refresh us all as a spring of water as we all constantly pray to Jesus and remember constantly Jesus Christ crucified daily with our hearts thanking Jesus daily for dying for us all and destroying forever all our problems.
1 Thessalonians 3:10 tells us also to constantly pray. It reads Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith. Psalm 55:17 reads Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud; and He shall hear my voice. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 reads Pray without ceasing. An ancient puritan wrote Peter on the top of a house prayed. Jonah in the bottom of the ocean in a whale prayed. Jesus prayed in the mountains. Paul and Silas prayed in the prison. When we have moments we feel overwhelmed, just pray and you will be comforted. Psalm 61 proves this by saying Hear my cry O God, attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.
Now remember deny sin constantly by looking to Jesus and the cross with your heart because sin blocks our prayers from working. Psalm 66:18 reads If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. Isaiah 59 reads Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated between you and your God and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. An ancient puritan wrote a tiny fish called the kemora that fights like a lion could stop and change the course of a great ship. So, the smallest sin, loved and liked, will hinder a person's prayer.
Now saints I had to type out this treasure I found in the word that I did not even know was in the bible. Rejoice and shout praises to Jesus as you read this jewel of a scripture. Job 22:23-27 reads If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles. Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall by thy defense and thou shalt have plenty of silver. For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty and shalt lift up thy face unto God. Thou shalt make thy prayer unto Him, and He shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows. Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee. And the light shall shine upon thy ways. When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up, and He shall save the humble person. He shall deliver the island of the innocent and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands. I pray Lord Jesus all who read this verse past present and future in Jesus name receive the promises listed above. Thank you Lord Jesus for I know you have granted this prophet this request.
To end up this blog, I give to you all a beautiful picture of a sunrise or the evening twilight right before the morning. Now read this revelation given personally to Brother Bob from Jesus. Open your bibles to Psalm 119:147 which reads I prevented (defined as anticipated, met, confronted, went before) the dawning of the morning (defined as the evening twilight right before morning) and cried; I hoped in thy word. Now read Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me and those that seek me early shall find me. So, if you want to find Jesus, anticipate and go before the dawning of the day early at say 3AM to 5AM and seek Jesus and you will find Jesus. Seeking is different from praying. Pray at all times. But seek for Jesus early and you will all find Jesus. It's also great to thank Jesus at midnight. Psalm 119:62 reads At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. To prove my point read Psalm 5:3 which reads My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord. In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Saint reading this keep looking for Jesus and praying. Hebrews 10:37 reads For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Titus 2:12 reads teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. 1 John 3:2 reads Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. Revelation 22:20 reads He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so Come Lord Jesus. Be like Solomon and expect to see your streets paved with pure gold as transparent glass and the beautiful kingdom that is pure gold clear glass. Solomon waited for the expected return of Hiram and his navy who presented to him pure golden wedges obtained from Ophir in India.

Saints, how bout this above for a picture. Keep searching for the true treasure who is Jesus in the treasure chest pictured above. Revelation 22:12 says And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. The reward, prize, and treasure is Jesus and to see Jesus forever in the kingdom will fully satisfy any saint now and forevermore. Philippians 3:14 reads I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Proverbs 2:3 tells us to search for wisdom which is Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:30) like someone searching for hidden treasure. The scripture reads Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding. If thou seekest her as silver and searchest for her as for hid treasures, then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowlege of God.
Jesus tells us when we run this race to Jesus to daily deny ourselves and take up our cross daily and look to Jesus crucified daily with our hearts for strength. Luke 9:23 tells us And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 13:24 tells us strive to enter in at the strait gate; for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. Paul tells us all how to run this race in 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 which reads Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate (defined as constantly denying your flesh and living holy for Jesus) in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
Wow, you might all say what is Brother Bob doing now with the two pictures above of a peacock and an almug or also called algum tree. Well, lets all go back to the days of Solomon and the land of Ophir. This is all in the bible everyone. Sailors in the navy for King Solomon every three years would go to Ophir which is modern day India to obtain gold precious stones, silver, ivory, sandal wood from the algum or almug tree, apes, and peacocks and bring the riches from Ophir to King Solomon. 1 Kings 10:22 reads For the king had at sea a navy of Tharshish with the navy of Hiram. Once in three years came the navy of Tharshish bringing gold and silver, ivory and apes, and peacocks. 1 Kings 10:11 reads And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees and precious stones. The almug or algum from Ophir was a precious coral red sandalwood used to make ornaments in Solomon's temple and palace and used to make musical instruments and costly utensils.
But now the good news. Jesus is better and worth more than Ophir's gold, silver, almug sandalwood, ivory, apes, and peacocks. Rejoice and shout to Jesus saints as I quote what Job stated about this in Job 28:20 which reads When then cometh wisdom (which is Jesus stated in 1 Corinthians 1:30)? And where is the place of understanding. Skip back a couple of verses to Job 28:15 for the answer. The scripture reads It cannot be gotten for gold neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof. It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx (or sardonyx) or the sapphire, the gold and the crystal cannot equal it and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral or of pearls. For the price of wisdom (Jesus) is above rubies. The topaz of Ehtiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold. To conclude if you by faith with your hearts daily remember Jesus and the cross you have much more treasure than gold, silver, topaz, onyx, rubies, crystals, corals, and pearls. Jesus is better than anything you could ever obtain on this earth.
You might say what is the picture above now from Brother Bob. This is a picture of Paul in Ephesus and Demetrius the silversmith behind him is starting a riot because Paul is telling the people not to worship the idol Diana. Demetrius made his living and money from erecting silver statues of Diana and is trying to stop Paul and make him flee from Ephesus so he can keep making money by erecting silver statues of the idol Diana. Acts 19:24 reads For a certain man named Demetrius, a silversmith, which made silver shrines for Diana, brought no small gain unto the craftsmen. Whom he called together with the workmen of like occupation, and said, Sirs, ye know that by this craft we have our wealth. Moreover, ye see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands. So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought. But, also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth. And when they heard these sayings, they were full of wrath and cried out saying, Great is Diana of the Ephesians. And the whole city was filled with confusion. And having caught Gaius and Aristarchus, men of Macedonia, Paul's companions in travel, they rushed with one accord into the theatre.
Matthew 6:24 reads No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Think about this verse saint reading this. When someone is sold out for Jesus, our enemies are people that love money and not Jesus. This can be fake religious people who love money who will fight against you when you preach Jesus Christ crucified. Think on this quote from Brother Bob. Today there are many people in this world that love material things like palaces, jewelry, yachts, and extravagent cars and ornaments and waste large amounts of money on these worthless material items and won't even give a penny for the relief of a poor christian widow or orphan.
Read this thought written by a puritan in the 1600's. Christians on this earth toil fervently and expend large sums of money overlooking dangers only to view Jerusalem and the Holy Land. They only get to see the bare tomb of Jesus and the earth Jesus walked upon. But, we as saints should strive and labour much more to enter into the kingdom by living holy every day. Our reward in the kingdom will be to personally see Jesus and not an empty tomb. Also we will possess and not just view our own personal mansions in the kingdom forever.
Other people in the bible like Demetrius pictured above who valued money and their jobs over Jesus are listed below. The pig owners in Gaderenes told Jesus to leave their country and persecuted Jesus when their pigs were drowned by demons and they couldn't make money from their pigs as a livelihood. The master of the woman of divination had Paul and Silas beaten and thrown into prison when he couldn't make any gains of money after Paul cast out the demon in the woman of divination. But Matthew the publican was so blessed and we all should be like Matthew. Matthew immediately left his trade of being a tax collector and followed Jesus. Saints remember if we try to save our lives we will lose them but if we are willing to lose our lives for Jesus we all will find our lives. Be like Brother Bob. Brother Bob left everything for Jesus and Jesus is all you all need in this life.
Wow, saint reading this study the picture above and people who really sold out for Jesus. Open your bibles to Acts 19:19 which says Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men; and they counted the price of them, and found it 50000 pieces of silver. These people did not want to sell these books and get money and cause people to be misled by their curious arts books. So they burned the books. I've done this myself. All the material things that I owned in the world before I knew Jesus that were ungodly were put in the dumpster. All I have now in my house is books, music, and computers that lift up the name of Jesus. What does it profit us if we all gain the world and lose our souls. Only Jesus lasts. Everything else will burn.
Wow, look above and left click the picture to see another one of Brother Bob's favorite pictures from the Sistene Chapel painted by Rosselli of Moses breaking the ten commandments after he saw the people worshipping the golden calf idol. The people above wasted their gold on a golden calf idol instead of Jesus. Exodus 32:3 reads And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf. And they said, These be thy gods, O Israel which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. Isaiah described what was done in the above picture at Isaiah 46:6 which reads they lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith, and he maketh it a god. They fall down, yea, they worship.
Jesus tells us not to be like the people in the picture above and waste your money and time on a worthless golden calf idol or material thing of this beggarly world. Jesus said in John 6:27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for the meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of Man shall give unto you. For Him hath God the Father sealed. A puritan writer from the 1600's wrote In AD 300, a man named Licinius and his deputy Agricolaus tried to make 40 saints of God deny Jesus by offering them great wealth. The 40 saints shouted in praise to Jesus, O eternity eternity, we choose Jesus who will last forever. They refused the pitiful wealth which was current only in this beggarly world and chose to obtain durable riches by choosing Jesus and godliness. Brother Bob has personally experienced this by choosing to leave large sums of money and family to follow Jesus and currently live in a one bedroom apartment with a space heater and regularly give away money to help the poor widows, prisoners, and orphans all over the world.
In closing, I give you all Job 14:14 which reads If a man die shall he live again? Al the days of my (appointed time) (defined as warfare) will I wait, till my change come. Saint reading this continue to fight the good fight of faith and wait for Jesus. Your change will come and you will be blessed now on this earth and forevermore in the kingdom with Jesus for all your labour for Jesus. 1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Wow, you all might say another great picture from Brother Bob. But the picture above relates to one of the most awesome revelations Jesus gave to Brother Bob early in the morning the other day at 2AM. Jesus showed me that all we need in this life is JESUS as our Father, Mother, Brother, and Sister. Matthew 12:50 reads For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Note, that the above verse leaves out Father. Well, the Holy Ghost showed me that the verse is speaking about Jesus because Jesus did the perfect will of the Father by dying for us all at the cross. This is proven in John 10:17-18 where Jesus fully obeying the command from his Father to love us all and lay down his own life for us all at the cross. The scripture reads Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
Note also in John 10:30 it reads I and my Father are one. Therefore, like the picture above Jesus is everything to us all. Jesus is our Father Mother Brother and Sister. Jesus is all we need saints in this life. Psalm 27:10 reads When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. Brother Bob has personally experienced this in his life. I found out in my twenties that I was adopted and did not have my original birth certificate. I tracked down my original birth parents to find out they did not want to have anything to do with me. Also my adopted orthodox Jewish parents treated me as a stranger and told me to let Jesus be my family. Well, in praise to Jesus since Brother Bob has been saved since 1981 for 30 years Jesus has always taken care of Brother Bob. I'm so glad that I left everything, family aunts uncles cousins and all Jewish relatives to serve Jesus. Be encouraged saint reading this, I promise you if you leave everything for Jesus, Jesus will take care of you like a father, mother, brother, and sister. Hallelujah.
Saints I had to put this awesome picture on my blog of little orphans praying to Jesus. Now open your bibles to James 1:27 which reads 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. Ecclesiastes 11 reads Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou shalt find it after many days. Give a portion to seven and also to eight. For thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. Isaiah 1:13 reads Bring no more vain oblations, incense is an abomination unto me, the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies. I cannot away with it, it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth. They are a trouble unto me. I am weary to bear them. Now study the picture above of the orphans praying and mediate on Isaiah 1:16 which reads Wash you make you clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes. LEARN TO DO WELL. SEEK JUDGMENT, RELIEVE THE OPPRESSED, JUDGE THE FATHERLESS, PLEAD FOR THE WIDOW.
In my experiences walking with Jesus I've learned that when we reach out to the poor and needy Jesus will reward us and take care of us in our time of need. Proverbs 19:17 reads He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. Notice it doesn't say to pay the poor with money. It says just have pity on the poor and you will be doing the work of the Lord and on Jesus' timeclock you will be paid in money back. I tell people when I bless them, they do not owe me anything in return but God's word is true and Jesus will pay you for your time you take to pity the poor. Some people tell Brother Bob I don't have the money to bless the poor. Brother Bob says but you have time to pick up a phone and call someone in need and pray for them and show the love of Jesus to them.
I testify the other night I spent two hours writing a letter to my dear orthodox Jewish friend in jail David Berkowitz, the former Son of Sam who now is saved and blesses untold numbers with the message of Jesus as Lord. My flesh at first did not want to do this for it was tired but the more I wrote the stronger I became. This is because when you take time to write or visit a prisoner, you visit and bless Jesus. Matthew 25:34 reads Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink. I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me. I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Now remember, our works without Jesus are useless. When you bless someone, tell the person not to exalt or lift up your name but lift up the name of Jesus. Tell the person you help, it is Jesus working through me and blessing you. Don't lift up Brother Bob, Lift up Jesus. This is proven in 1 Corinthians 13:2 which reads And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Remember everything is going to be tried by fire and only Jesus and the Word will remain through the fire. What I'm saying is that ONLY WHAT WE DO FOR JESUS LASTS. Jesus is the charity spoken of in the verse above.
Wow, saints isn't the picture awesome above of how Mary chose the better thing to do and sit and listen to Jesus instead of like Martha standing and cumbered about with the cares of this life. Open your bibles to Luke 10:41 which reads And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things; But one thing is needful; and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Another person in the bible who did not have time to hear about Jesus was Felix when Paul tried to witness Jesus to Felix. What a shame. Felix said he would hear about Jesus at a more convenient season but the season did not come. Acts 24:25 reads And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time, when I have a convenient season I will call for thee.
Saint reading this now is the time for you to confess Jesus as your Lord and believe in your heart that Jesus has risen from the dead. Don't be like Felix who sounds like the alcoholics I witness to who say I'll drink today and maybe tomorrow at a more convenient season I'll go to church and accept Jesus. Don't be like Agrippa in the bible who said almost thou persuadest me to be a christian. Paul replied to Agrippa in Acts 26:29 And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except these bonds.
Haggai also in the old testament told the people to come to Jesus now and not waste time being lost in their cieled luxurious houses. Haggai 1:2 reads Thus speaketh the Lord of Hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built. Then came the word of the lord by Haggai the prophet saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste? Verse 7 reads Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, consider your ways. Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house, And I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the Lord.
Finally, my last picture today is about Esau who sold his birthright for some red pottage. The story is recorded in Genesis 25:29 which reads And Jacob sod pottage; and Esau came from the field, and he was faint; And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint; therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die; and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him; and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way; thus Esau despised his birthright.
Wow, Esau valued earthy pottage over Jesus. Matthew 16:25 reads For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Remember, sometimes we have to just take time for Jesus and deny the cares of this life. Esau and Martha both missed out on blessings from Jesus because they were too concerned about the cares of this life. What does it profit you if you gain the whole world and lose your soul. They that seek after riches fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. I'm glad Abraham's servant did not delay to eat a meal and quickly took Rebekah on the camels to meet Isaac. Genesis 24:33 reads And there was set meat before him to eat. But he said, I will not eat until I have told mine errand. And he said, speak on.
In conclusion, Brother Bob gives you a quote from the 1600's. Be like the bird called the lark who is up early in the morning singing sweetly the praises of Jesus often and like the nightingale at midnight who keeps singing the same sweet song to Jesus.

Saints, you might say wow Brother Bob is giving us another picture of an animal. Well today I present to you all a picture of a deer or young hart making haste upon the mountains. Yes, this scene appears in the bible at Song of Solomon 8:14 which reads Make haste, my beloved and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices. Saint reading this lift up your hands to Jesus and say Jesus make haste and I thank you Jesus for coming quickly to deliver me from this wicked world and any problem.
Revelation 22:20 reads He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, Come Lord Jesus. And not only is Jesus like the deer pictured above making haste to come to you and assist you. Open your bibles to Song of Solomon 2:8 and see the joy that you all will share with Jesus. The scripture reads The voice of my beloved! Behold, He cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. Jesus will also cause nature itself to rejoice. Psalm 114:6-7 reads Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs? Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.
Saint reading this I claim in Jesus name that Isaiah 55:12 will constantly happen to you all. The scripture reads For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Now to my main message today that Jesus will exalt the humble and poor quickly. Saints as I look at the picture above I wish I could give those kids in the picture above a comfortable house with clothes that are not worn out. But we can all rejoice because Jesus will bless these little ones pictured above and give them white robes and mansions to live in.
Saint reading this if you like Brother Bob have given up everything for Jesus, family, nice homes and cars, much money, and the luxuries of this world rejoice when you read these next scriptures. 1 Samuel 2:8 reads He raiseth up the poor out of the dust and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill to set them among princes and to make them inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of the earth are the Lords and He hath set the world upon them.
Saints read these next scriptures closely and rejoice. Jesus will exalt you all. Romans 2:6-11 reads Who will render to every man according to his deeds. To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life. But unto them that are contentious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation, and wrath, tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man of man that doeth evil of the Jew first and also to the Gentile. But, glory, honour, and peace to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile. For there is no respect of persons with God. So, guess what there is a blessing and payoff for serving Jesus and leaving the pleasures of sin in this world that last for just a season. Moses was so blessed. He esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt and instead of becoming the head ruler Pharoah, Moses chose to suffer for Jesus with his people the Jews.
Think about the final states of the Rich man and Lazarus as you read Luke 16:25 which reads But, Abraham said, Son, remember, that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things. But, now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. Those who are now uppermost will then be undermost. The filth of this world will become God's jewels and the darlings of this world will become children of the devil. The righteous shall have dominion over the wicked in the morning. In the night of this world, the wicked sit in high places, and have dominion over the godly, but in the morning of the kingdom, the godly shall sit at the right hand of Jesus and have everlasting dominion over the wicked.
Wow, saints first left click the above picture to see a larger version and then look at one of Brother Bob's favorite paintings of all time at the Sistine Chapel in Italy showing at the top of the picture the three temptations of Jesus. I'm gonna preach to you all of the temptation on the top right where Jesus decided to serve the Father only and did not receive the devil's offer of palaces and treasures in this present world.
Saints meditate on the following scriptures proving to us all the durable and everlasting riches we have with Jesus. Jesus is so much better than anything you could obtain in this world. I'd rather have Jesus than anything in this present world. Proverbs 8:18 reads Riches and honour are with me. Yea, durable riches and righteousness. This is speaking of wisdom which is Jesus according to 1 Corinthians 1:30. Ephesians 3:8 reads Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the UNSEARCHABLE RICHES OF CHRIST.
When I read the next verse I fell sorry for the wealthy people of this world who boast in their material palaces, yachts, and worldly possessions. Revelation 3:17 reads Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich and white raiment that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Finally saints look at the picture above and realize that because Jesus died for us all at the cross now Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father with all power. 1 Timothy 6:17 reads 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.
Saint reading this if you have left everything for Jesus reading this, I claim in Jesus name this next verse for all who read this blog entry. John 16:22 reads And ye now therefore have sorrow. But, I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice and your joy no man taketh from you. Jesus will see us all again and we all will rejoice with everlasting joy that no man will ever take away from us. Revelation 21:3 reads And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them and they shall be his people and God Himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away.
Remember, the things of this world are only temporary. Build up treasure in heaven where a thief can never steal this treasure. Mark 10 gives the formula on how to build up treasure in heaven. Mark 10 tells us when we bless and give to the poor we build up treasure in heaven. Everything in this world will burn up with fire but Jesus will last forever. Saint reading this. Choose Jesus and deny this world and let your life be a light for all to see Jesus on this earth. Don't waste your time on the trifling pleasures of this world.
