Praise the Lord all my friends in so many nations that regularly read Brother Bob's book for Jesus. Today Brother Bob with the help of Jesus will give you many bible stories that let us all see that the Word speaks about Jesus. This is because the Word is Jesus. How about the picture above of Brother Bob's favorite bird the eagle. The Word of God speaks a lot about eagles.
First, lets all look at Isaiah 40:31 that says But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. I pray in Jesus name all my friends in all the nations that forevermore read this book receive strength and peace to live on for Jesus. Back up a few verses to Isaiah 40:29 and claim this verse for yourself as you say this. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength. Also rejoice as you say Habakkuk 3:19 that says The Lord God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds' feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places.
Now everyone meditate on the words of Jesus at John 12:32 that says And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. Now the Word is like putting a puzzle together and with the help of the Holy Ghost lets compare John 12:32 to Matthew 24:27-28 that says For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
The carcase mentioned in Matthew 24:28 refers to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ crucified and the eagles represent the true believers in Jesus who live daily by remembering with their hearts Jesus Christ crucified. I pray in Jesus name that all my friends in all the many nations will do Matthew 24:28 and saints everywhere will look with their hearts as eagles to the true carcase Jesus Christ crucified. I claim in Jesus name that as the saints in the many nations look to Jesus Christ crucified we all will be gathered together, Russian, Japanese, Saudi Arabian, Brazilian, Mexican, American, Canadian, Indian, Filipino, British, Australian, South African, and Indonesian.
For only in Jesus can we all come together. Remember, only Jesus was able to bring together Phillip a white man and the Ethiopian eunuch a black man. Only Jesus was able to bring together Peter a Jew and Cornelius a Roman gentile centurion. Remember, a true test to see if you are saved is that you love all people from all nations irregardless of their color, creed, and background. Jesus when He was on this earth loved all types of peoples, roman soldiers, samaritans who at that time did not talk to Jews, rich people like Zacchaeus and Nicodemus, and poor people like the humble fisherman Peter, James, and Andrew.
Remember the promise of Deuteronomy 32:11 that says As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings; So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. Hallelujah, saint reading this anywhere, one day soon we all will be caught up on eagle's wings to be with Jesus forevermore in the clouds in Jesus' kingdom as our youth is renewed. Psalm 103:5 says Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. Remember, everyone reading this like the eagles when they fly very high, we all will like the eagle shout for victory as we all reach heights above this troubled world in Jesus' kingdom forevermore.
Jesus showed Brother Bob several years ago when we all get to the kingdom, our youth will be renewed as the eagle and also now on this earth. A person that is a baby or an elderly person of say 90 years old will be the perfect age with youth renewed forevermore in the kingdom. Can you just think of all the aborted babies that will appear as people in the kingdom of around 30 years of age. I pray for doctors that for money abort innocent babies. These doctors need to repent of this sin. These abortions are wrong for these doctors are committing the abomination of shedding innocent blood listed at Proverbs 6:17 that God hates. I saw a vision once of a 90 year old man and 90 year old woman going to the kingdom as they rowed a boat. When the 90 year old man and woman reached the kingdom, the man become a strong young man of say 30 years old and the woman became a beautiful model of only 30 years old. The prophet Isaiah spoke about Brother Bob's visions and words above when Isaiah said at Isaiah 65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days; for the child shall die an hundred years old, but the sinnner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
OK, now remember the title of my bible study today I See Jesus In The Word. Wow, what a picture above of one of my favorite bible characters named Rizpah who reminds me of Mary Magdeline waiting to see Jesus resurrected. Rizpah's name is defined as hot coal and a spark to remind us all to seek for Jesus like Mary Magdeline did as she searched for Jesus resurrected.
Now to understand who Rizpah is we need to see the history of the Gibeonite people, Joshua, King Saul, and King David. Joshua 9 tells us the Gibeonite people tricked Joshua into agreeing to a treaty to not harm and protect them. King Saul violated this treaty and slaughtered many Gibeonite people. The Gibeonite people reminded King David of King Saul's violation of the peace treaty created by Joshua. King David agreed to allow the Gibeonite people to take seven of King Saul's sons and hang them to death. Rizpah was the mother of two of these sons and Michal was the mother of the other five sons that were hung by the Gibeonites. Rizpah is recorded to have prayed for months and plead to King David for a decent burial of the seven sons of King Saul. Daily, Rizpah would prevent the birds and beasts from harming the bodies of the seven sons of Saul. Jesus showed Brother Bob that the bible records that Saul and Jonathan only were buried but Rizpah's two sons disappeared like Jesus and were raised from the dead for there is no mention that David buried Saul's seven sons killed by the Gibeonites.
The story about Rizpah is recorded at 2 Samuel 21:8 that says But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth, and the five sons of Michal, the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzilai the Mehholathite. And he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the Lord; and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest. And Rizpah the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and suffered neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night.Verses 13-14 only speak of Saul and Jonathan's burial while there is no burial for Rizpah's two sons or Michal's five sons. Verse 13 says And he brought up from thence the bones of Saul and the bones of Jonathan his son; and they gathered the bones of them that were hanged. And the bones of Saul and Jonathan his son buried they in the country of Benjamin in Zelah, in the sepulchre of Kish his father; and they perfomed all that the king commanded. And after that God was intreated for the land.
Rizpah is truly the Mary Magdeline of the old testament. Like Mary Magdeline wanting a proper burial for Jesus, Rizpah also wanted a proper burial for her beloved sons. Like Mary Magdeline waiting at the tomb of the body of Jesus to find Jesus, Rizpah waited by her sons dead bodies hoping to one day see them buried and resurrected. I believe like Mary Magdeline who was honored for her faithful diligence to first see Jesus resurrected by risking her life around roman soldiers, note Mary Magdeline was braver than all the men disciples who fled from the tomb of Jesus, Rizpah also risked her life around dangerous beasts at night and birds by day to see her sons buried and resurrected. To Brother Bob Mary Magdeline and Rizpah are heroes who by their diligent prayer were rewarded with the honor of seeing the resurrected glory of Jesus and their beloved sons.
Note also, Mary Magdeline and Rizpah were prayer warriors who prayed in the early hours of the morning and all night and were rewarded for their diligent prayers. 2 Peter 1:10 says Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure; for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall; For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Saint reading this in the many nations, lets all be like Mary Magdeline and Rizpah and be diligent and keep remembering daily with our hearts Jesus Christ crucified as we praise Jesus daily. May Jesus reward us all with eternal peace and joy as we see the resurrected Jesus like Mary Magdeline by our daily diligent prayers.
Another bible story that reminds Brother Bob of Jesus Christ crucifed is the story of when Samson killed a lion and then took honey out of the carcase of the lion as the honey was surrounded by a swarm of bees. Jesus showed Brother Bob that the lion represented Jesus the Lion of the tribe of Judah who died for our sins (represented by Samson's sinful flesh). The honey in the carcase of the lion represents the sweetness of the Word that is Jesus. Psalm 19:10 tells us all that Jesus or the Word of God is sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. Also, note that Jesus took the sting out of death and when Samson put his hand in a swarm of bees, Jesus took away any sting that could harm Samson and allowed Samson to enjoy the sweet honey. 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.
The story of the above picture is recorded at Judges 14:5 and says Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath; and behold, a young lion roared against him. And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand; but he told not his father or his mother what he had done. And he went down, and talked with the woman; and she pleased Samson well. And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcase of the lion; and behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion. And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating , and came to his father and mother, and he gave them, and they did eat; but he told not them that he had taken the honey out of the carcase of the lion.
Saint in any nation right now as you look at the picture above of Samson with his sweet honey of Jesus, wave your hands and praise Jesus. Thank Jesus for being that Lion of the tribe of Judah that died for your sins, taking away the sting of death, allowing you to enjoy the sweetness of a land flowing with milk and honey. Jesus showed Brother Bob that Jesus represents both the milk and honey for the milk and honey refer to the Word of God and the Word 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. And as stated above at Psalm 19:10, the honey also represents the sweetness of the Word of God Jesus.
And finally, I give you all Samson's riddle and the interpretation Jesus gave Brother Bob about Samson's riddle. Samson's riddle reminds Brother Bob of Jesus. Samson's riddle is recorded at Judges 14:14 and says And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. Jesus showed Brother Bob that the eater and strong mentioned above represent the devil. The meat and the sweetness represent Jesus.
You see the devil tried to destroy Jesus at the cross, but Jesus turned the tables on the devil and destroyed the devil by dying on the cross. Like when the whale had to let loose of Jonah, the devil had to let loose of Jesus after the devil tried to swallow up Jesus at the cross. Hebrews 2:14 says Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil. Hallelujah, praise Jesus saint as you read out loud Revelation 1:18 that says 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.
Ephesians 4:8 says Wherefore He saith, when He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. Now that He ascended, what is it but that He also descended first into the lower parts of the earth (defined as a part of hell called paradise inhabited by the saints who lived before Jesus appeared on the earth who all rose to be with Jesus in the eternal kingdom). He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things. Hallelujah, Jesus descended to hell and took captive the saints who lived before his appearance on earth and freed these saints allowing them to ascend and live forevermore in peace at the eternal kingdom.
The story about the picture above is recorded at Genesis 11:6 and says And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth.
People might tell Brother Bob it's who I know as the reason I got promoted. Brother Bob always responds yep it's who I know Jesus as the reason I got promoted. Psalm 75:6 says For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south; But God is the judge; He putteth down one, and setteth up another. Notice the direction north is left out of the verse above. This is because when you look up north you look to Jesus. It's true man or the devil can not help us from the east, west, or south. Only Jesus can truly deliver and help us all. Psalm 121 says I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 24:7 says Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.
