Today, Brother Bob shows you all a picture of a group of rocks singing and praising Jesus. The picture is biblical and the bible says rocks and stones cry out and praise Jesus. Like the rocks and stones we all need to praise Jesus for dying for us all on the cross and giving us all hope to live in this wicked world. Luke 19:39 says And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto Him, Master rebuke thy disciples. And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. Isaiah 55:12 promises us 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 anyone who reads this bible study forevermore I want to quote from a great writer named George Swinnock from 1649 and I want you to as you read this quote take a moment to think on the power of these words and realize how animals and nature praise, know, and obey Jesus. Here's the quote: "Did Balaam's ass speak at God's command and reprove the madness of the prophet? Did ravens at God's command feed Elijah? Did caterpillars, locusts, frogs, and lice execute God's judgment upon Pharoah? Do fire, hail, snow, vapours, and stormy winds fulfill His word? Doth the earth open, the rocks rend, the stars fight in their courses, waters stand up in heaps as a wall, the moon stand still, the sun go backward, wildernesses tremble, things cross the course of nature to obey His pleasure and wilt thou not obey Him? Wilt thou be worse than these irrational and inanimate creatures?"
Now after you read the above quote, here are the scriptures that the quote speaks to. Notice the picture above is of a mule or ass that spoke and obeyed Jesus and rebuked Balaam and prevented Balaam from cursing God's people. Numbers 22:28 says And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee that thou hast smitten me these three times. We can all learn from the pictured mule or ass above who knows his Master Jesus according to the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah 1:3 says the ox knoweth his owner and the ass his master's crib. But Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
Just recently in the state of Texas a couple of atheists who do not believe in any God began promoting a song which showed churches and bibles being burned. We need to pray for these atheists that they find the Lord Jesus but speak out that Jesus is Lord. Even the mule pictured above knows who Jesus is. Psalm 14:1 says The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Romans 1:20 says For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. Brother Bob was a former atheist who did not believe in Jesus and someone was kind to me and showed me the Lord Jesus and Brother Bob got saved. Likewise, we need to show kindness and the love of Jesus to any atheist and Jesus can change that person to be a witness for Jesus like Brother Bob, but we all need to speak out against the doctrine of atheism. Love the person but speak out against the wrong doctrine.
OK Brother Bob's next picture is of a crow or raven and yes this picture is biblical. Usually when Brother Bob does his morning jog, Brother Bob gets to see and hear several crows cawing. I usually think boy those birds sure make a lot of noise and racket, but hallelujah Jesus can use the crows to bless us. When I look at these crows or ravens it reminds Brother Bob of Elijah and how the ravens obeyed Jesus and fed Elijah during a famine. 1 Kings 17:2 says And the word of the Lord came unto him saying, Get thee hence and turn thee eastward and hide thyself by the brook Cherith that is before Jordan. And it shall be that thou shalt drink of the brook and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. Lord Jesus help us all to be obedient like the ravens and go feed the hungry, visit the hurting, and take time for the poor people around us.
Here's all the scriptures that George Swinnock in the above quote was referring to on how nature obeys Jesus. Just think when you read all these scriptures, if Jesus can control nature and make the earth open, rocks rent, the wilderness shake, the sun and moon to stand still, waters to stand upon an heap, and the stars to fight in their courses, Jesus surely as you read this will bless and fix all your problems. Psalm 29:8 says The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness. The Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh. Psalm 148:8 says Fire and hail; snow and vapours; stormy wind filfilling His word.
Numbers 16:32 says And the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up and their houses and all the men that appertained unto Korah and all their goods. Matthew 27:50 says Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent. Joshua 3:13 says And it shall come to pass as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth shall rest in the waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be cut off from the waters that come down from above and they shall stand upon an heap.
OK, now meditate on this next bible verse from Judges 5:20 that says They fought from heaven; The stars in their courses fought against Sisera. I encourage those reading this bible study to go to the website blueletterbible which will give you the hebrew definition of the above verse. The word courses in hebrew is defined as ladderway and Sisera is defined as battle. Jesus showed Brother Bob that the stars are the angels that fight the battle for us daily against the devil. Look at John 1:51 that says And He saith unto him, Verily, verily I say unto you, Hereafter, ye shall see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man. Jacob had a dream of a ladder going to heaven with the Father at the top of the ladder and angels going up and down the ladder. Well John 1:51 tells us all that the ladder is Jesus. Brother Bob always says CROSS WITH THE CROSS to God by Jesus the way.
Saint reading this Psalm 91 talks about angels and says at Psalm 91:11 For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. The angels are coming down the ladderway or course to fight the battle or Sisera for you all saints. Remember 2 Chronicles 20:15 and that Jesus is fighting your battle with His angels and anyone reading this bible study has the victory in every area of their life. 2 Chronicles 20:15 says And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem and thou King Jehoshaphat. Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; For the battle is not yours, but God's.
OK, everyone take a good look at the picture above of a sun setting in the west. Do you realize that Jesus was so powerful in the days of Isaiah and Hezekiah, Jesus made the sun go backwards and try to set in the east instead of the west. When I think about this and how Jesus walked on water it makes Brother Bob realize that with Jesus all things are possible. I claim to all that read this bible study if you are facing an impossible situation in Jesus name that Jesus can do anything and will totally fix your problem forevermore. As a prophet Jesus told me to tell you all that those who read this bible study will be totally delivered from problems they've faced for many years instantly.
The bible verse that says Jesus caused the sun to go backward and set in the east is at Isaiah 38:8 and says Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz ten degrees backward. so the sun returned (defined in hebrew as turned back and went backwards) ten degrees by which degrees it was gone down.
Also, take note that Joshua which means the same as Jesus spoke to the sun and moon and the sun and moon stood still for an entire day. Remember saint if Jesus can stop the sun and moon, it is easy for Jesus to fix any problem you face. The scripture where Joshua or Jesus stopped the sun and moon is at Joshua 10:12 and says Then spake Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon and thou moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still and the moon stayed until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven and hasted not to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it that the Lord hearkened unto the voice of a man for the Lord fought for Israel.
JESUS GOD LOVE
OK, now Brother Bob wants you all to look at the three words above. Jesus told Brother Bob to share a revelation given to Brother Bob from Jesus. Jesus showed me that we can only feel love from people that believe Jesus is God. I'll prove this from the bible. 1 John 4:8 says He that loveth not knoweth not God. For God Is Love. Now Jesus is God because John 10:30 states the words of Jesus to be I and my Father are one. 1 John 5:7 says For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word (which is Jesus), and the Holy Ghost; AND THESE THREE ARE ONE. This scripture proves that Jesus is One with God and is God. John 1:1 says In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:14 tells us all that the Word is Jesus and says And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father. full of grace and truth. God is called the I Am and Jesus stated He was God by calling Himself the I Am at John 8:58 which says Jesus said unto them Verily, verily I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I Am.
Look at John 14:9 which proves that Jesus is God. John 14:9 says Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Now if someone thinks Jesus is just a man, great teacher, or great prophet there is no true love in that person. Since Jesus is God and God is Love, you can only see love around a person that believes Jesus is God. Pray for Jehovah Witnesses, Muslims, and Jews who do not believe Jesus is God. They all believe that Jesus was just a great man, teacher and prophet and was not God. As Brother Bob stated earlier show the love of Jesus to Jehovah Witnesses, Muslims, and Jews but speak out against their false doctrines. Over Brother Bob's lifetime, Brother Bob has won several Jehovah Witnesses, Muslims, and Jews to the Lord Jesus. Remember Luke 15:10 which says Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
