Keep Praying And Meet Jesus The Rainbow
Saints this is a very special lesson for you all that Jesus personally revealed to Brother Bob about the beautiful rainbow pictured above. Let me say to anyone reading this bible study we all must admit that Jesus is God and only Jesus could create such a beautiful rainbow with such magnificent colors. Psalm 14:1 says The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
Now I want everyone reading this anywhere in any country to realize that the Rainbow represents Jesus. I'll prove this to you all by scriptures. First notice that with every rainbow you might see, there are always seven colors to the rainbow in a definite order. You will always see the order by lines to be Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo (a darker shade of blue), and Violet.
Now the glorious thing about the rainbow is that the twelve precious stones listed in the foundations of the wall of the heavenly city at Revelation 21:19-20 and the same twelve precious stones with some different names listed in the breastplate of the High Priest that is Jesus forevermore listed at Exodus 28:15-20 all represent and display the seven colors of the rainbow. Jesus is defined as the High Priest forever at Hebrews 7:22-24 that says By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death; But this man, because He continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Now the revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob is that the rainbow we all will see in the Kingdom will forever be around the magnificent throne of the Father and this rainbow is Jesus. Revelation 4:2 says And immediately I was in the spirit, and behold a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone; and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. Down here on the earth we might every now and then see a rainbow which is obscured by man's pollution but in the Kingdom the rainbow brightly appears clearly forever with such bright colors beyond mans' thoughts at all times and is so glorious to look upon.
1 Corinthians 13:12 says For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face; now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known. The Apostle described the view of this glorious heavenly eternal rainbow as so wonderful that the glorious description of the rainbow was unspeakable. 2 Corinthians 12:4 says How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
The rainbow is Jesus because Jesus is the High Priest mentioned in Exodus 28:15-20 with the precious colors of the twelve gemstones in his breastplate that make up the twelve precious stones in the foundations of the wall of the heavenly city where the kingdom exists. In fact Jesus literally represents everything in the heavenly kingdom.
Since Jesus stated in John 10:9 I am the door; by me if any man enter in , he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture, Jesus represents the twelve gates or doors to the kingdom. The only way to enter the kingdom is through the door or gate which is Jesus. Also, the pearl in each gate of the kingdom represents Jesus because an oyster makes a pearl when the oyster gets irritated by dirt in his shell and creates a pearl. Well, Jesus suffered irritation for our dirty sins at the cross and this created a beautiful pearl in every gate of the kingdom. Also since Jesus stated at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me, Jesus is the Tree of Life in the kingdom in the midst of the street and on either side of the river stated at Revelation 22:2. Basically in every day terms, Jesus represents everything in the Kingdom. Jesus is the Kingdom and when we all arrive at the Kingdom just to see Jesus eternally and praise Jesus eternally is the ultimate reward.
OK, I'm still not done talking about the rainbow as Jesus. Now take a look at the picture above which are the twelve precious stones with the seven colors of the rainbow in Jesus' breastplate at Exodus 28:15-20 and in the foundations of the city of the kingdom at Revelation 21:19-20. Now I will quote these two passages of the blessed scriptures.
Exodus 28:15-20 says And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it, of gold, of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt thou make it. Foursquare it shall be doubled; a span shall be the length thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof. And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones, the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle, this shall be the first row. And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond., and the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst, and the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper, they shall be set in gold in their incolosings. Revelation 21:19-20 says And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl, the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth, the twelfth, an amethyst.
Now this next paragraph you might want to write out and save. Brother Bob studied the colors of each of the precious stones listed above and now I will list the seven colors of the rainbow and the corresponding precious stones that represent that particular color of the rainbow. First, Red- Sardius, Onyx which is also called Sardonyx. Second, Orange-Jasper or Diamond which is also called the stone of all colors and can also be red, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The whole city of the kingdom is colored jasper and is an orange consuming fire. Revelation 21:11. Remember God's fire never harms a saint. God's fire blesses the saints and destroys the devil. Isaiah 43:2 and Daniel 3:25.Third, Yellow-Topaz, Beryl, and Chrysolite. Fourth, Green-Emerald or Carbuncle, and Chrysoprasus. Note that topaz and beryl can merge into a green color.Fifth, Blue-Agate or Chalcedony that is a sky blue. Sapphire that is a royal blue. Sixth, Indigo-Jacinth or Ligure which is a darker shade of blue. Seventh, Violet-Amethyst.
OK, the next part of this bible study will give you all several treasures Brother Bob discovered this week in Jesus' Word about peace. I pray in Jesus name that all who forevermore read this bible study will receive strength and eternal peace from these listed scriptures. Isaiah 57:19 says I create the fruit of the lips, Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord, and I will heal him. Romans 2:10 says But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile. Psalm 29:11 says The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace.
Job 22:21 says Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace; thereby good shall come unto thee. Romans 5:1 says Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. John 14:27 says Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you; Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Isaiah 26:3 says Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.
And finally take a good look at the picture above that says peace is like a river. You might all say how can peace be like a river. Well Jesus showed Brother Bob that since a river flows, I claim in Jesus name that all who forevermore read this bible study will receive a peace that flows to them eternally with joy and comfort always. Isaiah 48:18 says O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river (defined as a flowing river of milk and honey), and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea (defined as fountains and springs that flow from all saints to refresh everyone around them.)
I once asked Jesus Jesus what does it mean when you tell me I'll go to a land flowing with milk and honey. Well as always Jesus told me the milk and the honey represent Jesus. The milk is defined as the Word which is Jesus. 1 Peter 2:2 says As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the Word, that ye may grow thereby; if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. The honey is also defined as the Word which also is Jesus. Psalm 19:8 says The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. Psalm 19:10 says More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Also, remember when Samson put his hand into the carcase of the Lion of the tribe of Judah Jesus he could enjoy the sweet honey and was not stung by the bees because when Jesus died for us all on the cross Jesus took away the sting of death. Judges 14:8-9, 1 Corinthians 15:54-55. Finally, remember saints we are all like eagles that daily need to gather and come together around the carcase which is Jesus Christ crucified. This is done by daily remembering with our hearts Jesus Christ crucified and giving thanks to Jesus for dying for us all. Matthew 24:28 says For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Finally, to end up my bible study today I give you all one of Brother Bob's all time favorite pictures of Elijah praying for rain after a drought of no rain for three and a half years, while his servant looks for rain seven times and just sees a little cloud the size of a man's hand. Remember the title of this bible study Keep praying and meet Jesus the Rainbow. Keep praying like Elijah pictured above even if you see nothing the first six times you look and even if on the seventh time your friends say your blessing seems so small like a tiny little cloud the size of a man's hand. Brother Bob says to all who forevermore read this bible study, while you keep praying (PUSH) (Pray Until Somethin Happens) like Elijah pictured above you all will receive an exceeding abundant blessing that will overtake you all.
The story of the picture above is at 1 Kings 18:41 and says And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel, and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees. And said to his servant, Go up now look toward the sea. And he went up and looked and said, There is nothing. And he said; Go again seven times. And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up and say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down that the rain stop thee not. And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode and went to Jezreel. And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
So remember when you pray daily, keep praying though your blessing seems like a little cloud the size of a man's hand for an exceeding abundant blessing above all that you can ask or think is soon to be yours. Brother Bob says when you pray display importunity and Jesus will grant your requests. The word importunity means persistent constant asking for a request and appears only one time in the Word of God at Luke 11:8 that says I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
Some people might say if you pray more than once for something you lack faith. Brother Bob says this does not line up with the Word of God. Keep praying for your request over and over and your faith will increase and Jesus will honor your importunity and persistent asking. Jesus himself in the Garden of Gesthemene prayed the same prayer over and over with the same words and the Father blessed Jesus. 1 John 5:14 says And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us; And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.
