Praise the Lord saints everywhere from Saudi Arabia to Russia and hundreds of other nations. I pray today's bible study will bless and give peace to all my international friends everywhere. I encourage everyone reading this bible study to do a google search for RA Torrey and read anything written by RA Torrey whose inspiration allowed Brother Bob to write today's bible study. RA Torrey was a great preacher from the 1800's and hallelujah my good friend David Berkowitz the former Son of Sam recommended RA Torrey to read. Please everywhere pray for my good friend David Berkowitz who is in prison for life that Jesus will grant him peace to continue to write for Jesus and win untold numbers to Jesus. Remember when we remember those in prison who love Jesus we remember Jesus. Matthew 25:37-40. Feel free to read my good friend David Berkowitz's journal by left clicking this link http://www.ariseandshine.org/ and then left click where you see journal.
Now left click the above painting and take a close look at what occurred when Jesus met the woman at the well while the disciples in the background were concerned that Jesus should eat meat and not minister to the Samaritan woman. The lesson Brother Bob wants you to receive from this study is to walk like Jesus and even if you might feel tired, hungry, or thirsty, deny yourself and minister and win souls to Jesus. Proverbs 11:30 tells us He that winneth souls is wise. Since Jesus is wisdom 1Corinthians 1:30 when we continue to minister Jesus to the nations and win souls we obtain wisdom or Jesus and receive peace.
OK, first hallelujah I want to write out what RA Torrey stated about the story of Jesus and the woman at the well. Take time to think while you read this and ask Jesus to help you deny yourself and your worries about bills, food, and finances and make Jesus priority in your life. I pray for all saints reading this in the many nations that in Jesus name we all will care for others needs and deny ourselves daily to win souls to Jesus.
RA Torrey said in 1892 Even though Jesus was tired, hungry, and thirsty, so tired that when his disciples went into the neighboring village to buy food for Jesus, Jesus was unable to go along, but rested wearily upon the well at Sychar. As He rested there He looked up the road and saw a prostitute who had been with five men coming toward Him. In His joy in an opportunity of doing the Father's will in winning the prostitute, He entirely forgot His weariness and hunger, and step by step led her to the place where she knew Him as the Christ or God. At that moment, his disciples again appeared and wondered that He was talking with a Samaritan prostitute, and then urged Him to eat of the meat which they had brought from the village.
Now note that Jesus' joy in saving the prostitute was more important than eating a meal. Jesus' meat defined as delight was to do the Father's will and save the lost prostitute. We should all like Jesus deny ourselves and win lost souls to Jesus. Saint reading this it is time for us all to deny ourselves and go out and win souls everywhere to Jesus for in these end times Brother Bob sees a great harvest of souls coming to Jesus in many nations. John 4:35 says Say not ye, There are ye four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. It's a joy to me to know that every week places like Hong Kong, South Korea, South Africa, Russia, Nigeria, Oman, and Brazil read the Word from God's little Jew Brother Bob out of poor little apartment in Ohio and souls are coming to Jesus through Brother Bob as a vessel to the nations.
The story about the above picture is at John 4:4 and reads There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water; Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink for his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat. Then Jesus ministers to the woman and wins the prostitute to Jesus and hallelujah this prostitute was used by God to win an entire city to Jesus. That little woman led an entire city to Jesus and won the city to Jesus. Remember saint anywhere reading this, Jesus can still use you like this prostitute no matter how bad your past is. Right now say thank you Jesus, the blood of Jesus has washed away all my past sins and Jesus I will be used to win souls to your kingdom.
Now John 4:27 reads and upon this came his disciples and marvelled that He talked with the woman; Yet no man said, What seekest thou? or Why talkest thou with her? 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. In the mean while his disciples prayed Him, saying, Master eat. Saint reading this learn from this parable. Don't be so worried about eating and doing daily chores like Martha in the bible and neglect Jesus and winning souls Luke 10:38-42. The disciples even went so far to say to Jesus is the food spoiled or ought as the reason you will not eat. John 4:33 says Therefore, said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought Him ought to eat?
But, as Brother Bob quotes John 4:34 right now lift up your hands and wave a blessing to Jesus for Jesus said his meat was to bless the prostitute and win the prostitute to Jesus and deny Himself. John 4:34 says Jesus saith unto them, my meat(defined as delight) is to do the will of Him that sent me, and to finish the work. Instead of eating a meal for strength, the joy of seeing the prostitute at the well saved to Jesus was priority over a common meal of meat. Saint reading this in any nation, let's all walk like Jesus and choose winning souls to Jesus instead of our earthly needs. Hallelujah.
Now everyone I want you all to study the above picture of Jesus and notice Jesus has no pillow to lay his head on or home to go to for shelter. Lord Jesus we thank you today that you always blessed others and had no where to lay your head. Let us all be like the Lord Jesus and care for others needs more than our own. Matthew 8:20 says And Jesus saith unto him; the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man hath not where to lay His head. Even the animals like foxes have holes and birds live in nests for shelter but Jesus loved everyone so much Jesus had no shelter or place to lay His head.
Now think about this revelation given personally to Brother Bob from Jesus. Jesus was always blessing people that His pillow was the ground and Jesus just loved people 24/7. Song of Solomon 5:2 proves that the ground was the pillow for Jesus. Song of Solomon 5:2 says I sleep, but my heart waketh; It is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled. For my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night. Wow, Jesus the beloved slept on the ground for a pillow for his head was filled with dew and the locks of Jesus hair were wet with the drops of the night. Thank you Lord Jesus for loving people so much and for dying on the cross for us all. 2 Corinthians 8:9 says For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes, He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich. Luke 19:10 says For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
RA Torrey wrote in 1893 even though Jesus was God, Jesus chose the cow stable for His birthplace, the poor carpenter shop for His school, the contempt and rejection of men for His reward, the agony of Gesthemene and the shame of the cross to deliver vile, worthless, and outcast sinners like you and I. Thank you Lord Jesus for your eternal love to us all in the many nations.
OK everyone look at the picture above of the man who had palsy that got healed by Jesus after his four friends lowered him to Jesus through a roof. Remember your prayers for others like the four men above who helped the man with palsy bless and heal others. Today after 30 years Jesus gave Brother Bob a revelation of how it was so awesome that Jesus proved He was God by saying He could forgive sins. Notice in the story above that the scribes reasoned that only God could forgive sins. Jesus proved to the scribes that He was God by healing the man with palsy. And hallelujah after the scribes saw the miraculous healing, the scribes proclaimed Jesus as God who forgave sins and all the scribes got saved.
As you look at the picture above lets read Mark 2:5 that says When Jesus saw their faith, He said unto the sick of the palsy, Son thy sins be forgiven thee. But, there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only? And immediately when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, He said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick of palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee or to say Arise and take up thy bed and walk? But, that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins He saith to the sick of palsy, I say unto thee Arise and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all, insomuch that they were all (this includes all the scribes who learned that Jesus as God forgives sins) amazed and glorified God saying we never saw it on this fashion.
Finally, to end up today's bible study Brother Bob asks you all to write down the following scriptures that prove Jesus is God. I dedicate this part of my bible study to my good friend Wes Strawser who truly revealed to me the importance of confessing Jesus as God. I have so many to give you all as you look at the above picture and I pray you can use them as you witness to others to win souls to Jesus. Remember according to Romans 10:9 for a person to be saved they must confess Jesus as Lord or God and believe in their heart that Jesus died for them on the cross and rose again. I pray in Jesus name any Jehovah Witness who forevermore reads this will believe Jesus as God and not just a mere man, great teacher, angel, or just a prophet.
Why don't we start at the very beginning of the bible. Genesis 1:1 says In the beginning, God (defined in hebrew as plural intensive singular) This means Father Son(Jesus) and the Holy Ghost are plural more than one yet singular one) created the heaven and the earth. Notice also at Genesis 1:26 it says And God said, Let us make man in OUR (not my)(Jesus is one with God), image, after OUR likeness. 1 John 5:7 says For there are three that bear record in heaven, The Father, The Word, (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one. Now our bibles say Jesus the Word is one with the Father and is God. Please saint reading this believe the bible and not a mortal man that says Jesus is not God. Jesus is God. Wow, the words of Jesus Himself at John 10:30 says I and my Father are one. Also, Revelation 1:8 says I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (defined as Almighty God) Jesus Himself proclaimed that He was Almighty God.
Thomas called Jesus God. John 20:28 says And Thomas answered and said unto Him, My Lord and my God. Peter called Jesus God. Acts 10:36 says The Word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, He is Lord of all. Colossians 2:8 says Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of man, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Romans 9:5 says Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen. Now I request all reading this to go into blueletterbible website and type in the word firstbegotten and you will find it means of Christ or Jesus. Now look at Hebrews 1:6 and hallelujah the angels worship Jesus as God. Hebrews 1:6 says And again, when He bringeth in the firstbegotten (defined as of Christ or Jesus) into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him. Right now lets all be like the angels and wave your hands at Jesus and worship Jesus as God. Remember a good son would always at all times honour his father. Lets all be good children and honour Jesus as our Father God. It is an outright insult to say Jesus is just a great person or teacher and not God.
Philippians 2:10 says That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. And the old testament confirmed Philippians 2:10 at Isaiah 45:22 that says Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the Word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return. That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. 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? And Jesus Himself proclaimed that He was the I AM or God when He said in John 8:58 Verily verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.
John 5:23 says That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son, honoureth not the Father which hath sent Him. Jesus showed Brother Bob that the devil tells people that Jesus is not God to stop people from being saved because a person can only be saved by confessing Jesus as God. This is why the bible says that it is a mystery of godliness to say Jesus is God. 1 Timothy 3:16 says And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in the flesh. This is talking about Jesus. Make sure you read a KJV bible that correctly says God (Jesus) not he was manifest in the flesh. If your bible does not say God was manifest in the flesh throw it in the trash and get a KJV bible.
Now to any saint in any nation anywhere I pray in Jesus name that you will read closely the next bible verse which is the test to know a true spirit of God and not be deceived by a false demonic spirit. 1 John 4:1 says Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God; Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ (defined as Messiah Emmanuel God With Us) is come in the flesh is of God; And every spirit that confesseth not the Jesus Christ (defined as Messiah Emmanuel God With Us) is come in the flesh is not of God; and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
You see anyone that tells you Jesus is God come in the flesh is a true spirit. The Jehovah Witness that says Jesus is not God come in the flesh is not of God and has the spirit of antichrist. Please saints everywhere follow ministers that confess Jesus as God and ignore any writings that deny the deity of Jesus as God. But, please show the love of Jesus and pray daily for people that deny Jesus as God. Over the years Brother Bob has won several Jehovah Witnesses to Jesus and now these people believe Jesus is God and are truly saved.
Mark 14:61 says But He held His peace, and answered nothing. Again, the high priest asked Him and said unto Him, Art thou the Christ (defined as Messiah Emmanuel or God With Us), the Son of the Blessed. And Jesus said I AM, and ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven. Jesus Himself proclaimed himself to be God before the high priest by stating He as God would come in the clouds. The old testament at Psalm 104 proves that only God or Jesus could come in the clouds as His chariot and walk upon the wings of the wind. Psalm 104:1 says Bless the Lord, O my soul; O Lord my God, thou art very great, thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Psalm 104:3 says Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters; who maketh the clouds His chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind.
I pray these bible verses that show Jesus is God have blessed you all. I welcome the new countries of Saudi Arabia, Macau, Kenya, Ghana, Latvia, Japan, Estonia and Oman to Brother Bob's book for Jesus. To all my new international friends in the many nations please email Brother Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how Brother Bob's book for Jesus has blessed you all. Also, feel free to write anytime to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Finally, to end up today's bible study, please read some more scriptures that prove Jesus is God. Everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.
Hebrews 1:3 says Who being the brightness (defined as effulgence or radiant splendor and brilliance where Jesus perfectly reflects the Majesty of God) of His glory, and the express image (defined as exact expression or precise reproduction in every respect) of His person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High. Jesus was truly the express image of the Father and was God. Philippians 2:6 says Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Isaiah 9:6 says For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, (defined as marvellous, admirable, distinguished, extraordinary, and a miracle of God), Cousellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. You see the prophet Isaiah proclaimed that Jesus as the Son is the Mighty God and Everlasting Father.

Glory to Jesus, today Brother Bob is blessed to say that after 30 years, Jesus has given me great revelations about prophecies seen by the prophet Daniel at Daniel 9:24-27 about Jesus and the end times. I pray in Jesus name that my international friends everywhere take time to read and meditate on this bible study and I proclaim in Jesus name that great peace be loosed and fill everyone that forevermore read this bible study. OK lets take a journey with the prophet Daniel now as we study the picture above and study Daniel's incredible prophecy about Jesus and the end times.
Brother Bob will now with the assistance of Jesus explain to all my friends verse by verse Daniel 9:24-27. Daniel 9:24 says Seventy weeks (in hebrew a week is defined as seven years therefore as we do the math 70x7 is a 490 year period that Daniel is talking about) are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy. So, Daniel says in a mystery that until the end of time 490 years will elapse. As a side note, I once heard a preacher say Be a blessed mathematician and learn to number your days and be a blessed astronomer and have your conversation about heaven.
OK, now Brother Bob rejoices hallelujah to tell you all that after thirty years, I have finally understood what Jesus was saying when he told Peter to forgive people seven times seventy times or 490 times. Jesus was telling Peter and all people everywhere to always until the end of time for 490 years forgive people. Brother Bob says to all who read this bible study, please forgive and do not be angry and have grudges of unforgiveness to anyone. James 1:20 says For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Since 1 Corinthians 1:30 defines Jesus as righteousness, we all see that wrath or anger will cause man to run from Jesus and lose power and peace.
Proverbs 27:3 tells us all that a stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool's wrath is heavier than them both. Ecclesiastes 7:9 says Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry; for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. Ephesians 4:26 says Be ye angry, and sin not (everyone is a sinner according to Romans 3:23 so do not be angry; Only Jesus who is perfect with no sin can be angry); let not the sun go down upon your wrath. If you can learn saint reading this to not be angry and bless your enemies, the weight of sin and oppression will flee from you and you will live longer with peace. It's sad that many people with grudges who do not forgive for years end up in hospitals with unnecessary burdens. Forgive everyone right now as you read this and receive peace and life in Jesus name.
OK, let's forge ahead with Daniel 9:25 that says Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince (Jesus) shall be seven weeks and threescore and two weeks (OK do the math 7+60+2=69 weeks or 483 years that it will take from Cyrus' edict to rebuild the second temple around 445BC until Jesus is on the earth around 32AD) the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. Wow, anyone in any nation reading this right now please proclaim right now Jesus as God and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again and be saved. Isn't it incredible that the prophet Daniel thousands of years ago predicted with accuracy that the Messiah King Jesus would appear after a 483 year period from Cyrus' edict to rebuild the second temple. Jesus truly is Lord.
And to prove that Jesus is truly the Lord and Messiah, let's all look at the picture above of Jesus lowly and riding on an ass, a colt the foal of an ass to fulfill the prophet Zechariah's vision thousands of years before Jesus walked on the earth. Like Daniel, Zechariah also foretold the coming of Jesus as God and stated at Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion. Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem, behold thy King cometh unto thee. He is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. Also, note how the prophet Isaiah also foretold that Jesus would be born of a virgin and be called Immanuel (Defined as God). Isaiah 7:14 says Therefore, the Lord himself shall give you a sign, Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.
Saint reading this, I encourage you to have the faith that the virgin Mary had who believed the impossible and took God at his word, believing that Jesus could be born from a barren womb. Luke 1:38 proclaims And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. I claim in Jesus name all who forevermore read this, like Mary, take Jesus at his Word and Lord Jesus grant eternal peace and healing for these believing people in the many nations.
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. Job 22:21 says Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace; thereby good shall come unto thee. I once heard a backhills preacher say Isaac was born from a dead womb and Jesus was born from a barren womb. Romans 4:19 speaks of Abraham's faith and says And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah's womb. He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God. And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform. And hallelujah, Sarah a 90 year old woman did the impossible and gave birth to Isaac causing 100 year old Abraham to be a new father.
Now remember saint reading this if the prophets speak more than once about the coming of Jesus, it is a fact and truth that Jesus truly is God and the Eternal Messiah. Get saved right now and confess Jesus as God and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again and lives forevermore. The prophet Micah, like Daniel also predicted the coming of the Lord Jesus stating that Jesus would be born in Bethlehem. Micah 5:2 says But thou, Bethlehem Ehpratah (Defined as House of Bread and Place of Fruitfulness and wow with Jesus the True Bread of Life according to John 6:35 we are in a Place of Fruitfulness), though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall He come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel. Whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. And to top it all off, the prophet Amos also foretold that when Jesus died on the cross in a clear day there would be darkness from the sixth to the ninth hour or according to hebrew time that starts at 6AM from 12 noon until 3PM in the middle of a clear day. Amos 8:9 says And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day.
OK, lets go on now with our interpretation from Jesus about Daniel 9:26 that reads And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, (wow Daniel predicted Jesus dying for all sinners on the cross), but not for himself, and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary (this occurred when Rome in 70 AD destroyed Jerusalem and the temple), and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
Now get ready to ask Jesus to help you meditate on the next revelations about Daniel 9:27. Now notice per the above discussion, 483 years have ticked off the 490 year time clock that Daniel foretold. This leaves us all with seven more years or the seven year tribulation period that will occur before the end of time when Jesus comes to establish His everlasting Kingdom. Hallelujah soon all saints can proclaim the promise of Revelation 11:15 that says The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever. Daniel 9:27 speaks about the final 7 year tribulation period before Jesus returns to set up His everlasting Kingdom.
Daniel 9:27 says And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (note this is talking of the Beast in Revelation 13 defined in greek as the Antichrist who will make a covenant peace treaty with many nations and at the point of the start of this peace treaty the seven year tribulation period will begin) (as a side note doesn't this make you think of the one world government that is soon to come). and in the midst of the week, he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease (the Antichrist will stop all true worship after 3 1/2 years into the tribulation period and erect what is called the abomination of desolation or image or the beast stated in Revelation 13) and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, ( this abomination of desolation is defined as an idol that God is utterly disgusted with that has no joy), even until the consummation (defined as the utter destruction or burning up of this old world before Jesus creates a new heaven and earth of eternal peace), and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate (defined as a determined decree to outpour utter destruction upon the devil, beast, and false prophet).
Now to fully explain Daniel 9:27, we must discuss Revelation 13 and I'll allow Jesus to speak through Brother Bob about the future events prophecied by the Apostle John about the abomination of desolation or the image of the beast erected by the false prophet. Revelation 13 tells us that the false prophet will try to cause all people on the earth to worship the image of the beast. And note any person who will not worship the image of the beast will be put to death by the image of the beast (not a person).
To end up this weeks bible study you all might say Brother Bob is at it again with pictures of a plow and a cow. Well Brother Bob says again it's biblical. The above pictures above remind Brother Bob of the prophet Elisha when he left everything (his job as a farmer and his family) to follow the prophet Elijah and serve Jesus. I pray in Jesus name that anyone reading this bible study in any nation will be like Elisha and leave everything for Jesus and place Jesus first in their lives before family, job, and money.
As you look at the above pictures of a plow and cow, rejoice, Elisha burned the plows and killed the cows and totally left his job as a farmer and family to follow Elijah and serve Jesus. 1 Kings 19:19 says So he departed thence, and found Elisha, the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelvth. And Elijah passed by him and cast his mantle upon him. And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him; Go back again; for what have I done to thee? And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen (Elisha truly burned the plows and killed the cows) and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.
As a side note think also how the disciple Matthew was so blessed to just at a moment totally leave his job as a tax collector and follow Jesus. Also, think how blessed James and Peter were to just at a moment totally leave their jobs as fishermen to follow Jesus. And think how blessed the deacon Philip was to be willing to follow Jesus and leave a crowed city to go to the desert Gaza to preach to just one Ethiopian eunuch on a chariot and win that Ethiopian eunuch to Jesus. And, finally think how blessed Noah was for preaching 120 years and winning no converts but still kept working on the ark and received salvation from Jesus. 2 Peter 2:5 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.
As always it has been a blessing writing this weeks bible study. I pray that these revelations given to Brother Bob from Jesus truly bless all my friends in so many nations that regularly Brother Bob's book for Jesus. I welcome the countries of Oman, Paraguay, Turkey, China, Nigeria, Lithuania, Venezuela, Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, Trinidad and Tobago, Croatia, South Korea, Lebanon, Egypt, Hong Kong, Belarus, and the United Arab Emerites to Brother Bob's book for Jesus. Please feel free anyone anywhere in any nation to email Brother Bob at email@example.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. It would be such a blessing to hear from my friends in the many nations. Please keep Brother Bob in your prayers everyone and I'll keep praying for you all. Hallelujah Brother Bob's book for Jesus continues to glorify our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

How about the above picture to start out this weeks bible study of Jephthah the Gileadite lamenting that he must perform his vow and sacrifice his one and only virgin daughter who greeted him at the door of his house. I encourage you reader to left click the picture above and study this anointed painting. This story reminds me of Peter lamenting and saying to Jesus that Jesus should not go on the cross as a pure sacrifice. Saint reading this remember as you read old testament stories in the Word you should see Jesus in these stories. It's interesting to note that in hebrew the name Jephthah means He opens and this reminds me of the keys of the kingdom of heaven that Jesus gave to Peter for opening. Also, in hebrew the name Gileadite means rocky region and it's interesting to note that Peter's name was Cephas or a stone. OK I will now quote to you all the wonderful story of the picture above of Jephthah who is listed as a hero of faith in Hebrews 11:32. And do not forget that even though Peter denied Jesus three times and lamented that Jesus would be crucified, Peter also is considered a hero of faith and his name is listed forever in the foundations of the heavenly city. Revelation 21:14.
The story of Jephthah and the above picture can be found at Judges 11:30 and says And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the Lord, and said, if thou shalt without fail deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands, then it shall be, that whatsoever comes forth of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the children of Ammon, shall surely be the Lord's, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering. Judges 11:34 further states And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and behold his daughter came out to meet him with timbrels and dances. And she was his only child, beside her he had neither son nor daughter.
OK, lets let the Holy Ghost analyze the above verses. First note that the sacrifice or the daughter of Jephthah appears at the door. The holy ghost revealed to me that the pure virgin daughter of Jephthah at the door in the above picture represents Jesus who is the door and was a willing sacrifice for all sinful people of all nations. Jesus stated at 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. Also, note that in the kingdom are twelve gates or doors and these gates represent Jesus who is the only way to enter into the everlasting kingdom. Now also notice above that the daughter is rejoicing and happy to be the pure sacrifice. Hallelujah, this reminds Brother Bob of how Jesus rejoiced to die on the cross to be a willing sacrifice for all saints everywhere in all nations. Hebrews 12:2 says Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
And glory to the Lord Jesus, John 10:17-18 proves that Jesus like the daughter of Jephthah pictured above was a willing sacrifice. John 10:17-18 says 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. Wow, Jesus fully obeyed the command of the Father and willingly laid down his life for us at the cross so we daily could have a place to place our burdens by faith to destroy the works of the devil. And also note that Jephthah's daughter was his one and only child and Jesus was the Father's one and only Son that was sacrificed for you saint reading this so you could obtain eternal life. Hallelujah, Abraham truly prophecied about Jesus when Abraham at Genesis 22:8 stated God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering. Yes God provided himself Jesus who is God as the Lamb for our burnt offering. Yes Jesus as God was that burnt offering that Jephthah was referring to quoted above at Judges 11:30.
OK now Brother Bob wants you to group the above picture of Peter denying Jesus and not wanting Jesus to go on the cross with the first picture above of Jephthah who like Peter does not want to sacrifice his pure virgin daughter. Now lets continue on in our analysis of the story of Jephthah at Judges 11:35 that says And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter thou hast brought me very low and thou art one of them that trouble me, for I have opened my mouth unto the Lord and I cannot go back. And she said unto him, my Father, if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the Lord, do to me according to that which proceedeth out of thy mouth, forasmuch as the Lord hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies, even of the children of Ammon. And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me.
Now let's all compare the story of Peter lamenting and telling Jesus not to go on the cross with Jephthah above lamenting about the sacrifice of his daughter. Matthew 16:21 says From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples how that He must go unto Jerusalem and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes and be killed and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him and began to rebuke Him saying, Be it far from thee Lord. This shall not be unto thee. But, He turned and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me Satan. Thou art an offence unto me for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Thank you Lord Jesus because for myself and for all my friends reading this bible study in the many nations you willingly died on the cross. Jesus did not let Peter stop him from going to the cross. Also the virgin daughter of Jephthah did not allow anything stop her from dying as a willing sacrifice.
Unlike Adam, Jesus you did not hide in the garden of gesthemene but willingly offered yourself to die on the cross for all sinners. John 18:7 says Then asked He them again, Whom seek ye? And they said Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am He: if therefore ye seek me; let these go their way. Remember, when we are pure with Jesus we all come to the light and have no reason to hide like sinful Adam.
This is a lesson to be learned; whenever we are guilty of sin, the sinful person tries to hide away and run from trouble in the darkness. But, saint reading this anywhere, if you repent and look to Jesus crucified with your heart, the blood of Jesus will remove all your guilt and you can approach the light away from all darkness. John 3:19 says And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. Jesus loved us all and did not call out legions of angels to stop the Roman armies from placing him on the cross. Wherever you are saint now reading this, wave your hands at Jesus for the willing sacrifice that Jesus did for us all at the cross of calvary. Remember the death of Jesus at the cross was the greatest act of love ever.
Well everyone, lets finish the story of Jephthah at Judges 11:37 that reads Let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows. And he said, Go, and he sent her away for two months. And she went with her companions and bewailed her virginity upon the mountains. And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed. And she knew no man.
This last part of Judges 11:37 about Jephthah's daughter, reminds Brother Bob of Jesus telling the daughters of Jerusalem to not weep for his sacrifice at the cross of calvary. Luke 23:28 says And there followed Him a great company of people and of women which also bewailed and lamented Him. But, Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem weep not for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. And finally, as Jesus was sacrificed on the cross for all our sins, Jephthah finally did sacrifice his virgin daughter who was a pure virgin.
Saint reading this in any nation Brother Bob says like Jesus do not weep any more for the Lamb of God Jesus has destroyed the devil forever by dying on the cross for you. Revelation 21:4 tells us all 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. Revelation 7:17 says For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters; and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
OK to end up this weeks bible study, Brother Bob gives you all the wonderful story of how our Lord Jesus created oil out of nowhere for the widow and her sons pictured above so they could pay off their creditors and survive as they obeyed the prophet Elisha's instructions. When I look at the above picture, Brother Bob thinks about Ephesians 3:20 that says Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Now Brother Bob proclaims a prophecy from Jesus to any saint that reads this in any nation from this time forth and forevermore. Jesus told me to tell any saint in any nation if you face an impossible situation raise your hands right now and say Thank you Jesus for creating blessings and making anything I need appear out of nowhere. Romans 4:17 says As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Before I tell you about the story of the picture above let me give you all the examples Jesus shows us in the word about making our needs appear out of nowhere. Jesus and Peter had to pay taxes one day and Jesus made the money for the taxes appear in a fishes mouth for both Jesus and Peter. Jesus fed a multitude with just two fish and five loaves of bread and fish and bread appeared out of nowhere to feed the multitude. And Jesus was so good that after the multitude finished eating, there was still leftovers in twelve baskets. An angel made water appear out of nowhere for Hagar and Ishmael, food and drink appeared out of nowhere for the widow of Zarephath after she faithfully fed the prophet Elijah, and finally out of nowhere manna starting falling from the sky to feed the children of Israel in the wilderness. David posed a question at Psalm 78:19 stating Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? Brother Bob gives all my international friends the answer to this question: God Can.
OK take a good look at the picture above and lets read 2 Kings 4 that says Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord; and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full. So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.
Note in this wonderful story, we all need to be like the widow and act now like we already have our desired prayers. The widow woman gathered many vessels acting like she had a lot of oil available before the oil appeared. Because of the widow woman's faith in obtaining the many vessels, as the widow poured the oil, the oil kept flowing and filled all her vessels. Also, note that when Jesus blessed the widow with enough oil to fill vessels to pay off the creditors, Jesus was so good that there was leftover oil for her and her children to survive and live on. Yes, Jesus will give us all exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.

Sunday, June 3, 2012
Hallelujah, take a good look at the picture above and rejoice. Like Jesus, all saints and believers in Jesus as Lord will have eternal life and obtain total victory over the grave. Like Jesus, we all will by the Spirit have our mortal bodies quickened and be raised to eternal life with total victory over the grave. Romans 8:11 says But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. Hosea 13:14 says I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death; O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction; repentance (defined as sorrow) shall be hid from mine eyes.
We should all rejoice as we look at the above picture and know that no man, grave, death, or any obstacle can stop any saint from living forever to be with Jesus. 1 Corinthians 15:55 says O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:1 says For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. As we read on 2 Corinthians 5:8 says We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
I love the picture above because it gives us all hope to see Jesus alive forevermore, resurrected, and leaving his grave and tomb, having total victory over death and the grave. In Revelation 1:18 Jesus said I am He that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore. Amen.; and have the keys of hell and of death. And any saint reading this anywhere in any country you can rejoice because you share and have with Jesus total victory over death and the grave. This is proven by John 11:25 that says Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live; and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Saint reading this, rejoice and know that as you believe Jesus as Lord, you will never see death. John 8:51 says Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death. But, sadly any person that does not believe Jesus is Lord will experience two deaths. First the unsaved person will die a natural death and then at the judgment will experience a second death and be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone. But, saint reading this, as you believe in Jesus as Lord, you are an overcomer and shall not be hurt of the second death. The scriptures that prove this are John 16:33 that says These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Since, believers in Jesus are overcomers, all saints can claim the promise of Revelation 2:11 that says He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
Now, take a good look at the above picture of Brother Bob's favorite woman of the bible who is a hero to Brother Bob called Mary Magdalene. The story of Mary Magdalene is recorded at John 20. To me, Mary Magdalene was braver than any man or any disciple and risked her life to stay by the tomb of Jesus surrounded by Roman soldiers to see Jesus raise on the third day. Mary also was very wise and remembered that Jesus said he would rise again the third day. The disciples also knew this but they feared the Roman soldiers and did not go to Jesus' grave to view Jesus' resurrection. To me, Mary was an awesome woman, because Mary risked her life to see Jesus. Matthew 16:25 says For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. Because of Mary's bravery, Jesus honored Mary with the privilege of Mary being the first person to see Jesus resurrected.
When Mary saw Jesus, she thought Jesus was the gardener. Yes, Jesus was the gardener because John 19:41 says Jesus was buried in the garden. John 19:41 says Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. And Hallelujah, look at the words of Mary when she saw Jesus. John 20:14 says And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing Him to be the gardener, saith unto Him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take Him away. Then, hallelujah, Mary recognized Jesus and the scripture says Jesus saith unto her Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto Him, Rabboni, which is to say, Master.
As I look at the picture above of Jesus resurrected and alive forevermore, I must give you a quote that Jesus personally gave to Brother Bob to share with all my friends in the many nations. "All saints have victory over death and the grave and one day soon all the saints graves will bust wide open as all the saints asleep rise to be forever alive with Jesus in the kingdom. Saint reading this, as you read this next verse, take time to meditate on the truth and power of these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13 says But, I would not have you to be ignorent, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God, and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.
Now saint reading this close your eyes and meditate on this revelation. One day soon when Jesus returns in the clouds, we all will see the graves bust wide open as the saints asleep in Jesus rise up to be with Jesus and then all of the saints alive on this earth will be caught up (defined as snatched or plucked out) by the angels to be with Jesus in the clouds forevermore.
Jesus blessed Brother Bob this week and revealed the meaning of Matthew 27:52 after twenty years that says And the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after His resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared (defined as made known and manifested) unto many. Jesus showed me that the time when the saints that are asleep and all those that are alive and remain (which is the whole house of Israel) rise to be with Jesus is at a time in the future that no man knows except the Father (defined above as after His resurrection).
Notice no definite number like 144000 is listed in Matthew 27:52 as rising. Matthew 27:52 just says many bodies of saints asleep will rise to be with Jesus someday. The Apostle John proclaimed that the number of people before Jesus was a number that no man could number. Revelation 7:9 says After this I behold, and , lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands. Also, notice in Matthew 27:52 that when all the saints arrive at the kingdom, all the saints will appear unto many. The word appear here is defined as made known and manifested. Hallelujah, when we all get to the kingdom we will appear to all our loved ones and be made known to all our friends. Yes, hallelujah, all saints will recognize one another as we all rejoice and praise Jesus forevermore. Wow, what a revival will occur when we all get to heaven and the kingdom.
Now, hallelujah, this same vision of the many saints that were asleep and rose to be with Jesus was seen by the prophet Ezekial at the valley of dry bones at Ezekial 37:11. Notice, Ezekial defined all those that rose to be with Jesus as the whole house of Israel (saints past, present, and future). Ezekial 37:11 says Then he said unto me, Son of Man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold they say, our bones are dried, and our hope is lost; We are cut off for our parts. Therefore, prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the Lord; when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves and shall put my Spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land; then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it and performed it saith the Lord.
OK, to end up this weeks bible study, Brother Bob stresses to you all the importance of prayer. Matthew 18:19 says Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Now look at the first picture above of Abraham praying for his nephew Lot to be spared from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Saint reading this do you realize that your prayers preserve and keep people alive. Abraham's prayer for Lot spared Lot from destruction and saved Lot and his family. Genesis 19:29 says And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham (notice God remembered Abraham and not Lot's prayer) and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
Now notice the second picture of your friend Jesus praying constantly for you right now saint reading this somewhere in any nation of this world. Hebrews 7:25 says Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them. And since Jesus is a righteous man, Jesus' effectual fervent prayer for you saint availeth much. James 5:16 says Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Jesus' prayer for all saints is recorded at John 17:9 and says I pray for them, I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. John 17:15 says I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
Saint reading this remember your prayers are important. If you look at Mark 2 you will see that a man sick of the palsy was healed because of the prayers and assistance of his four friends when the friends lowered him through a roof to be healed by Jesus. Mark 2:3 says And they come unto Him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. And when they could not come nigh unto Him for the press, they uncovered the roof where He was; and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw the faith of the sick man's friends, Jesus stated at Mark 2:11 I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house. And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God saying, We never saw it on this fashion. You see the man sick of palsy couldn't help himself and his friends' faith and assistance resulted in deliverance and healing for the man sick of the palsy. Saint reading this, keep praying for your friends. Jesus hears your prayers and I claim in Jesus name, all those praying for their friends for healing and deliverance will see all their prayers answered with total deliverance for their friends.
I pray in Jesus name these bible studies strengthen and encourage all my friends in all the nations everywhere.
