Brother Bob starts off this weeks bible study by sending out a prayer to my many friends in the many nations that regularly read Brother Bob's book for Jesus. I pray in Jesus name that the name of Jesus will be exalted in all nations everywhere from Brazil, India, Phillipines, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, USA, Russia, Great Britain and so many other nations that support Brother Bob. Saint reading this anywhere look at the scriptures below of what will happen to your country if Jesus is exalted and worshipped in your country. Let the flag of all our nations be the picture above of Jesus. Jesus said at John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
For any nation to be blessed Jesus must be God of that nation. Just look at Psalm 33:12 that says Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, (This means blessed is the nation that proclaims Jesus as God and Lord), and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance. When a nation is ashamed of Jesus as Lord, that nation experiences troubles that can be avoided if Jesus is acknowleged as God. Proverbs 14:34 tells us righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people. Jesus is the righteousness that exalteth a nation because 1 Corinthians 1:30 says But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. To any leader of any nation reading this book forevermore take heed to David's warning at Psalm 9:17 that states The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Be encouraged saint reading this if you live in a nation that denies the bible and Jesus as God for like Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah, Jesus will deliver you before destruction comes to any nation for that nation's denial of Jesus as God and the Word. If you live in a nation where you see poor people troubled around you with justice denied to the poor, remember Jesus is higher than any public leader and will bless and preserve the poor in your nation. Say this scripture from King Solomon out loud and praise Jesus. Ecclesiastes 5:8 says If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter; for He that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they. Hebrews 13:6 tells us So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
You see Jesus is the Word and whenever a nation enacts laws that speak against the bible, do not obey any law that speaks against the Word of God. The leaders in Peter's time told Peter it was against the law for Peter to teach about Jesus. Peter was thrown into jail for disobeying that law and Jesus caused angels to free Peter from prison and allow Peter to keep preaching Jesus everywhere.The leaders in Daniel's time told Daniel it was against the law for Daniel to pray. Daniel was bold and opened his windows while praying for all to see and was thrown into a lion's den for his prayers. Jesus blessed Daniel and delivered Daniel from the lion's den and honored his prayers. Currently in the USA, children are not allowed to pray in schools. Brother Bob tells all parents to disobey any law stating kids can not pray in school and tell your kids to pray peaceably anytime Jesus tells them to pray in the school as long as it is not disruptful to the school.
But respect your nation's laws that do not deny the Word of God. Pay your taxes, do not steal, do not kill, go the speed limit while driving, and obey all laws that do not deny the bible. Leaders and police officers are called ministers of God and deserve our prayers and respect. Romans 13 tells us Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God; and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same; For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain; for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
OK, you might all say what is Brother Bob up to now with the pictures above of Peter praying on a roof and Jonah praying in a whale. Just recently Brother Bob studied a commentary by RA Torrey and RA Torrey stated examples of places where it is good to pray. RA Torrey noted that Peter prayed on the top of a house on the roof, Jonah prayed at the bottom of the ocean in a whale, Jesus prayed on the top of a mountain, and Paul and Silas prayed in a lowly dungeon. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us pray without ceasing. Luke 18 tells us men ought always to pray, and not to faint. James 5:16 says the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
OK open your bibles to 1 Timothy 2:8 and meditate on what it says. 1 Timothy 2:8 says I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. Right now, Jesus told me to have you saint reading this lift up your hands and pray and praise Jesus. Let me give you a revelation Jesus gave to Brother Bob this week. Before you pray, anoint yourself with olive oil in the name of Jesus for James 5:14-15 tells us the olive oil will forgive your sins and this will help you hear Jesus clearer causing your prayers to be effective. Sin blocks blessings so if you anoint yourself before you pray for others, the sin will be gone and Jesus will quickly honor your prayers. Jesus told me to have all saints reading this recite Psalm 134 that says Behold, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, which by night stand in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord. The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
How about the picture above of Judas casting his 30 pieces of silver down in the temple, realizing that his silver was worthless compared to Jesus. RA Torrey wrote what a dreadful trade Judas made when he sold the incomparable Saviour Jesus for a little corruptible silver. O my soul, what will it avail thee to be rich in this world and a beggar forevermore in hell. Job 27:8 warns us For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? The prophet Ezekial stated at Ezekial 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed; their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord; they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels; because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
1 Timothy 6:17 warns rich people Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy. John in the book of Revelation also warned rich people at Revelation 3:17 by saying Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. 1 Timothy 6:9 tells us But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
An ancient puritan writer once wrote he that begins to put his finger in the money box will soon put his hands in the money bags. They who will serve the devil for a penny will do him much more service for a pound. Saint reading this if the devil tempts you to do a small sin, deny the devil immediately for little sins lead to bigger sins. King Solomon warned us all at Ecclesiastes 10:1 saying dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour; so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour. Don't let a little fly or little sin ruin your witness and testimony for Jesus.
Don't let a little money cause you like Judas pictured above to turn away from Jesus. It's either Jesus or money. Matthew 6:24 says No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Right now saint anywhere reading this say along with King David Psalm 119:72 that states The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver and Psalm 119:162 that states I rejoice at they word, as one that findeth great spoil.
Remember saint anywhere reading this to remember the poor for when we do it to the least among us we do it unto Jesus. Take heed to the warning from the prophet Amos who warned rich people living in luxury who forgot the poor, the troubles they would receive for ignoring and mocking the poor around them. Amos 6:3 says Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;; That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall; That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David; That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments; but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.
The prophet Haggai also gave a warning to rich people to not forget the poor and avoid trouble by blessing the poor when Haggai stated at Haggai 1:4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
Sometimes animals have more sense than foolish wicked sinners that deny Jesus as God. Just look at the ox, ass, stork, turtledove, crane, and the swallow noted in the following scriptures from the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah. Isaiah 1:3 states The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib; but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Jeremiah 8:7 states Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle (turtledove), and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord. Psalm 14:1 warns the fool and says The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Right now any person reading this anywhere confess Jesus as God and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again and be saved and be wise instead of a fool.
For my final picture for today's bible study, I give you all a picture of Jesus feeding the multitudes with just two fish and five loaves of bread. This picture made Brother Bob think about the wisdom of King Solomon stated at Ecclesiastes 11:1 that says Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shalt find it after many days. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth. This scripture reminds Brother Bob of the Shunnamite woman in 2 Kings 4 that was kind to the prophet Elisha and gave Elisha a little chamber, bed, table, stool, and a candlestick. The Shunnamite woman cast her bread on the waters and when an evil famine came upon her country, after she fled to the Philistines, upon her return after the famine, she was restored her land with extra blessings according to 2 Kings 8:1-6. God's word can not lie for Proverbs 19:17 says He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
My friend David Berkowitz the former Son of Sam tells me that he sends his testimony and writings about Jesus to thousands of people in many nations. I told David what if the people don't write you back. David stated which I'll never forget, I cast my bread on the waters and even with no reply, I know I will find a blessing for my labour soon from Jesus. Be encouraged saint reading this and keep doing a work for Jesus for your labour is not in vain. Galatians 6:9 tells us And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Recently, Jesus has been giving Brother Bob powerful anointed visions in the night and I want to share a wonderful scripture given to me by my good friend Wes Strawser. Psalm 16:7 tells us I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel; my reins (defined as my spirit) also instruct me in the night seasons. Hallelujah, I claim in Jesus name for all saints reading this everywhere that Jesus will begin to speak to you and instruct you in the night seasons as you sleep. Rejoice and say right now as you praise Jesus Isaiah 35:10 that says And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Well another week and yes Brother Bob has been faithful and gives to you all the wonderful word of God and claims blessings for you all. I live to write this book for Jesus and as long as Brother Bob has breath, the book of Jesus will go on continually. Thanks for taking time to read Brother Bob's book for Jesus and feel free to contact me anytime at my email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Have a blessed day in Jesus name.
Sunday, August 19, 2012
Today, Brother Bob starts out this weeks bible study by giving you all a picture above of an angel appearing to Ornan the Jebusite at the threshing floor. This week I want to encourage all my friends in the many nations and let them know that angels protect us all daily as we believe and yield our lives to Jesus as Lord. Brother Bob will proceed to give to you all many scriptures that prove the power that angels have as they protect us daily. Because angels are so powerful, we all must daily pray for mercy for our enemies that persecute us for believing in Jesus because the angel of the Lord in the bible (just one angel) can destroy many enemies in just an instant.
As we all look at the above picture realize that just one angel who appeared to Ornan at the threshing floor was full of so much power and destroyed in an instant 70000 people. Jesus allowed this angel to destroy 70000 people because David had sinned and trusted in his flesh by numbering the people and not trusting the Lord Jesus to fight his battles. 1 Chronicles 21:14 tells us So the Lord sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel 70000 men. And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the Lord beheld, and He repented Him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the Lord stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite. And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the Lord stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces. As a result of David's prayers for the people, 1 Chronicles 21:27 resulted that says And the Lord commanded the angel; and he put up his sword again into the sheath thereof, and the people's lives were spared by the prayers of David.
Remember, Brother Bob stresses again to pray for your enemies for our prayers will prevent angels from harming our enemies. Hosea 4:6 tells us that people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. When sinners in this world persecute believers in Jesus, we must pray that these enemies of Jesus repent to avoid any harm. When an unsaved person mocks the Holy Ghost in a believer, that unsaved person can blaspheme the Holy Ghost and sin the unpardonable sin. Saved people with Jesus can not blaspheme the Holy Ghost for Galatians 3:13 tells us Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. Also 1 Corinthians 12:3 tells us Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed.
For years, the devil lied to Brother Bob and made Brother Bob worry about sinning the unpardonable sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost listed at Mark 3:29 that says But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. But, you see saint reading this anywhere when you get saved with Jesus you also also get filled with the Spirit and according to 1 Corinthians 12:3, a saved person with the Spirit of God can not blaspheme the Holy Ghost and call Jesus accursed. Romans 8:9 proves that when a person gets saved they at that moment receive the Holy Ghost and says Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
OK, then you all might ask then who can sin the unpardonable sin of blaspheming the Holy Ghost. The answer is an unsaved person without Jesus who mocks the miracles of the Spirit and wishes persecution and death to prophets called by Jesus to speak life to this end time generation. As believers of Jesus, we must pray for these ignorent sinners to repent and change their lives and accept the Lord Jesus into their lives. 2 Chronicles 36:16 tells us But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy. Proverbs 29:1 warns unsaved people by saying He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
Saint reading this anywhere, if you are being persecuted for believing in Jesus, be encouraged; Jesus is with you and protecting you with many angels. Psalm 34:7 tells us The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. Psalm 91:11 tells us 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.
Now Jesus this week gave an incredible revelation to Brother Bob of the power that just one angel has that is protecting daily all my friends in the many nations that read this bible study. According to 2 Kings 19:35 just one angel protected Hezekiah and destroyed in just one night 185000 Assyrian enemies trying to kill Hezekiah for his faith in the Lord Jesus. 2 Kings 19:35 says And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out and smote in the camp of the Assyrians 185000. And when they arose early in the morning, behold they were all dead corpses. So please pray for your enemies that persecute you daily because of your walk with Jesus, for the angels that protect us all are very powerful and wow just one angel can take out 185000 in one night.
OK, to continue our discussion of how angels protect believers in Jesus take a good look at the above picture of Jacob's dream of a ladder to heaven with angels ascending and descending on the ladder and Jesus as God at the top of the ladder. The story of the above picture is at Genesis 28:12 and says And he dreamed and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven, and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And behold the Lord stood above it, and said I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac. Now the bible is like a puzzle that we need to piece together and to understand Jacob's dream of a ladder, lets all look at John 1:51 that says And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man. Hallelujah, notice that according to John 1:51 the ladder is Jesus (The Son Of Man) that the angels are ascending and descending upon.
You see the picture above gives us all an illustration of Jesus (the ladder) who is the Captain or General of the Hosts of angels with Michael (the warring archangel) that the Father dispatches to protect his saints as these angels do warfare against the devil and the evil forces of this world. This is proven by the scripture Judges 5:20 that says They fought from heaven, the stars (defined as angels) in their courses (wow courses is defined as ladder) fought against Sisera (defined as the field of battle and remember the word of God defines field as this world).
As I meditate on the power of angels and just how one angel in two different cases took out 185000 and 70000 people quickly, I praise Jesus that Jesus willingly went to the cross and died for us all by not calling more than 12 legions of angels (81912 plus angels; for a legion of angels is 6826 angels and 12 times 6826 is 81912) to protect Himself at the garden of gesthemene. Look at the wonderful words of our Lord Jesus at Matthew 26:53 that says Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and He shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? Everyone reading this right now wave your hands at Jesus and praise Jesus for not calling these legions of angels to stop his death on the cross as Jesus willingly sacrificed his life for you at the cross, destroying all our fears, problems and the devil forevermore.
Brother Bob rejoices as he gives you all the above picture of Simon of Cyrene assisting Jesus by carrying the cross for Jesus. After 30 years, the other night at 4AM, Jesus revealed to Brother Bob the reason the Father had Simon of Cyrene help the Lord Jesus carry the cross. You see Jesus got to a point that he could no longer carry the weight of his cross. Saint reading this anywhere if you ever get to a place in your lives where you feel the persecution is too much and you feel like you can not carry the weight of your trials, remember like Jesus, Jesus will send a Simon of Cyrene to you to help you carry and overcome your burdens.
Remember, saint reading this anywhere, if the trials of life and persecutions seem too much, just think about how Jesus handled persecution, and you will receive strength and peace to go on for Jesus. Be like Jesus and when you are reviled do not revile back, when you suffer for serving Jesus and hurt in your body, like Jesus do not threaten back. (1 Peter 2:21-23). Think about how Jesus was mocked and persecuted before Pilate and Herod as His enemies stated Who do you say you are. Notice Jesus did not threaten them or curse them but did not say a word. I pray in Jesus name that all who read this and want to in their flesh threaten, think and speak evil of their enemies, remember and be like Jesus and not say anything but pray for and bless our enemies. I believe that the ultimate love was shown by Jesus as He hung on the cross and his response to the mockings and persecution was Father forgive them for they know not what they do. And wow even through the sufferings of the cross, Jesus still took time to show love and compassion to the thief by him by saying Today thou shalt be with me in paradise while another wicked thief railed on Jesus. I pray in Jesus name, like Jesus all saints reading this can continue to love people around us no matter how much suffering we experience in our walks with Jesus.
A simple scripture describes the above picture at Matthew 27:32 and says And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon, by name. him they compelled to bear His cross. Notice Simon of Cyrene was compelled to carry Jesus' cross. Simon in his flesh did not want to assist Jesus. Most people do not want to in theirselves help people carry a burden. But hallelujah when the Holy Ghost compels us all to help our brothers and sisters, like Simon of Cyrene we all will yield to the Spirit and be a blessing to our brothers and sisters in the Lord Jesus. Let us all say like Jesus Not my will Lord but thy will be done.
For Brother Bob's final thought for today's bible study, I give you all the above picture of Jesus as a little boy teaching the doctors in the temple. Wouldn't it be an honor to hear Jesus as a child speak and answer any question, for Jesus was wisdom. The bible scripture that is about the above picture is at Luke 2:46 and says And it came to pass that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions. And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. I also would be astonished at Jesus' understanding and answers as a little boy that was God.
Jesus truly is wisdom for 1 Corinthians 1:30 says But of Him are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. Now again like a puzzle put the bible together and realize that Jesus as wisdom is better than silver, gold, rubies, or anything you can desire. With Jesus or wisdom is length of days and riches and honour. Proverbs 3:14 talking about wisdom or Jesus says For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies; and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand, and in her left hand riches and honour.
And wow, the queen of Sheba will rise up and condemn this end time generation for not receiving Jesus whose wisdom is much greater than the wisdom of Solomon. Matthew 12:42 says The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold a greater than Solomon is here. And hallelujah we all know that Jesus is the greater one mentioned by the Queen of Sheba for Jesus truly has greater wisdom than Solomon for Jesus is wisdom.
As always, I've enjoyed writing this bible study I pray you all receive peace and strength as you read these revelations from Jesus to Brother Bob. Feel free to contact Brother Bob anytime by emailing email@example.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till our next meeting soon, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.
Sunday, August 12, 2012
Everyone in any nation, Brother Bob asks you to look closely at the above picture and notice that Jesus is giving us all an example on how to live daily as servants to bless all those around our lives. Lord Jesus, let all who read this bible study and see this picture above be servants and be concerned more about other people's needs than our own needs. Philippians 2:4 tells us Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. And look at Philippians 2:7 of how Jesus died for us all on the cross and was a true servant to us all. Philippians 2:7 says But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
OK, Brother Bob must say that the picture above has to be one of his favorites. Now I want you friend anywhere to meditate on the fact that even though Jesus was God, Jesus humbled himself and washed feet. The bible verse that speaks about the picture above is John 13:3 and reads Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He was come from God, and went to God. (Notice how this verse begins by saying Jesus as God owns everything yet Jesus in the next verse will show love by humbling Himself as He washes his friends' feet). The bible verse continues to say He riseth from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel and girded Himself. After that He poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. And notice in John 13:17 if you saint reading this like Jesus become a servant, happiness will come into your life. John 13:17 says If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
Hallelejuah, now Brother Bob will give you several scriptures to prove to you all that even though Jesus was God, Jesus chose to humble Himself and dwell with the humble lowly saint. Isaiah 57:15 says For thus saith the High and lofty one that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy, I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 66 says Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest? For all things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord. But to this man will I look even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
Notice that Isaiah 66 teaches us that Jesus looks to the humble lowly person but hallelujah Jesus also hears the prayers and requests of the humble lowly saint. Psalm 10:17 says Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble; thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear. The bible teaches us to walk like Jesus to receive peace and the desires of our hearts. 1 John 2:6 tells us He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked. 1 Peter 2:21 shows us how Jesus walked as an example for all saints. 1 Peter 2:21 says For even hereunto were ye called; because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth; Who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously. Saint, I claim in Jesus name, today you will walk like Jesus and be willing to assist your brother and sister even willing to wash their feet. Look at the reward you will receive if you abide with Jesus and walk like Jesus. John 15:7 tells us If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
Next, Brother Bob gives all my friends in the many nations a wonderful picture above of the 24 elders around the throne of Jesus being humble and taking off their crowns and casting them before Jesus who alone is worthy to be crowned with glory and honour. Rejoice as Brother Bob gives you a saying given to him by Jesus from heaven. Jesus as God dwells with the humble lowly saint, and the humble lowly saint dwells with Jesus in His glorious kingdom. This revelation given to Brother Bob is proven by Matthew 5:3 that says Blessed are the poor (defined as lowly and humble) in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Also, Psalm 138:6 says Though the Lord be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly, but the proud He knoweth afar off.
Now notice in the above picture, the 24 elders have the privilege of being very close to Jesus around the throne in the kingdom because they are humble and cast down their crowns. Saint, Brother Bob encourages you all to be like the 24 elders and realize the more humble we are, the closer we all will be to Jesus in the kingdom like the 24 elders. The story in the bible about the above picture is at Revelation 4:10 and says The four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying, Thou art worthy O Lord to receive glory and honour and power; for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Finally, here are some more bible scriptures that prove that Jesus as God was so humble and became a servant, dying for all our sins. Take time to read one of Brother Bob's all time favorite bible verses about how Jesus was so humble and even though Jesus was God, Jesus became like us to comfort us all daily. 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. And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily, He took not on Him the nature of angels, but He took on Him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore, in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto his brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them that are tempted.
Also take time to read Hebrews 2:9 that says But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man. Also 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.
Now my friends everywhere, as you look at the above picture of a precious sparrow, know that Jesus cares for you more than many sparrows and will comfort you always. The bible scripture that is about the picture above is Luke 12:6 that says Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But, even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; ye are of more value than many sparrows. If Jesus has His eye on the sparrow and protects and cares for all the little sparrows, Jesus certainly will care for you my friends in the many nations that read these bible studies. Psalm 56:8 tells us that Thou tellest my wanderings; put thou my tears into thy bottle; are they not in thy book?
Jesus showed me saints this week that the love of Jesus is greater than the love of a mother. The prophet Isaiah proved this when he stated at Isaiah 49:15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. And hallelujah read how Jesus loved us even after we all were by nature the children of wrath. Ephesians 2:3 says Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others; But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us; Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved.
Now, as you all look at the above picture of how Saul was prevented by Jesus from harming the saints of God at Damascus, remember Jesus feels our persecutions from sinners who mock us for our walk with Jesus. Meditate on the words of the bible scripture that relate to the above picture at Acts 9:3 that says And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus, and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven. And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus, whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. You see as Saul persecuted the saints at Damascus, Jesus was being persecuted, and hallelujah Jesus defended the saints of Damascus and prevented Paul from killing them. Saint reading this anywhere, I claim in Jesus name, when you are persecuted for serving Jesus, Jesus will defend you and cause your enemies to flee from your presence. I also pray in Jesus name that our enemies like Saul in the picture above will be changed and become our friends and supporters of our walk with Jesus.
Finally, a couple of blessed thoughts to end up this weeks bible study. Let me write out a saying from a great christian writer Ralph Erskine from the 1600's about how earthly things are just shadows of our wonderful Lord and Saviour Jesus. Ralph Erskine wrote The sun in the firmament is but a shadow of Jesus, the Son of Righteousness that shines as the light of seven days. The roses and lilies are but shadows of Jesus, the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valley. The rivers and fountains are but shadows of Jesus, the fountain of living waters; the plants and trees are but shadows of Jesus, the tree of life. And all the stars in the heaven are but shadows of Jesus, the Bright and Morning Star. For my last thought for this bible study, saints everywhere I ask you all to praise Jesus for calling us out of darkness into the marvellous light as you read 1 Peter 2:9 that says But, ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.
It is always a joy to write these bible studies and know that thousands in many nations regularly read these blessed revelations from Jesus.

Sunday, August 5, 2012
My friends in the many nations, Brother Bob starts out today's bible study by asking you all to look closely at the above picture and know that Jesus receives all nations and families. This has to be one of Brother Bob's favorite pictures of all time. In the picture Jesus is receiving black, white, chinese, indian, spanish, young people, old people, and all nations. Brother Bob says to all people in the many nations that read this, when a person comes to Jesus and is saved, that person should have no prejudice or hatred for any people. If you look at Proverbs 6:17, you will all learn that the number one abomination or thing that Jesus hates is a proud look. A person that truly has Jesus in their lives will not have proud looks and think they are better than another person because of their race, creed, nation, or culture.
There are many examples in the bible that show us that Jesus does not approve of proud looks and discrimination against a certain nation or culture. In Numbers 12 Miriam spake against Moses for marrying a black Ethiopian woman and Miriam was plagued with leprosy for speaking out against Moses. In John 4 Jesus was not prejudice and spoke to the Samaritan woman and saved the prostitute who had been with five men. In those days Jesus who was a Jew was not allowed to speak to Samaritans but Jesus was not proud and arrogant and spake to the Samaritan woman and saved the prostitute. Hallelujah, as a result, the samaritan prostitute brought an entire city to Jesus and the whole city was saved by Jesus as the result of the witness of a saved Samaritan prostitute woman.
Finally, in Acts 10 Jesus rebuked Peter for being a bigot and not speaking to Gentiles. Jesus caused Peter to have a vision and Acts 10:11 says And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth; wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. Peter called the animals unclean but Jesus rebuked Peter and said what God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. Jesus explained to Peter that Cornelius a gentile had sent three men to Peter's house to ask Peter to pray for Cornelius the gentile to receive the Holy Ghost. Jesus explained to Peter that the gentiles also with the Jews could receive the Holy Ghost. Hallelujah, Peter was blessed and obeyed Jesus and repented of his proud arrogance against gentiles and went to Cornelius' house and prayed for Cornelius and Cornelius a gentile received the Holy Ghost.
Now saint reading this, as you look at the above picture, remember if you are rejected by your family or friends for serving Jesus, remember you have a family with Jesus and are accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 1:6 says To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved. Psalm 68:6 says God setteth the solitary in families; he bringeth out those which are bound with chains. Friend reading this in any nation if you feel lonely and rejected by the world, Jesus the beloved accepts you and sets you in his family of brothers and sisters in Jesus.
Everyone in all the nations wave your hands at Jesus as Brother Bob gives you all a gem I found in the Word this week. Jesus says speak this bible verse and peace and strength will fill your lives. Luke 1:78 says Through the tender mercy of our God, whereby the dayspring (rising light of Jesus) from on high hath visited us, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. I claim in Jesus name that any saint reading this in darkness or in the shadow of death to receive guidance and peace by the light of Jesus. The prophet Isaiah spoke of a highway of holiness where saints will be guided by the light of Jesus and never wander or be lost in darkness. Isaiah 35:8 says And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called the way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those; the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err (defined as wander) therein.
Now as we all look at the above picture of Jesus speaking to the Samaritan woman, receiving her even though his country forbid Jews to speak to Samaritans, meditate on the following bible verses that prove that Jesus will receive the stranger or any person in any nation that comes to Jesus. Saint reading this anywhere, Jesus will receive you right now if you come to him by faith and confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again. Revelation 22:17 tells us all And the Spirit and the bride say come. And let him that heareth say Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever (note the bible says whosoever and this means you saint reading this in any nation) will, let him take the water of life freely. As I write this, I think of how Ruth a Moabitess was received by Boaz a type of Jesus even though Ruth was a stranger in Israel. Ruth, a stranger from Moab, was honored and saved and now according to Matthew 1 is listed as one of Jesus' great great grandmothers. And hallelujah, Matthew 1 also tells us that Boaz's mother, Rahab a prostitute, is considered saved and also has the honor of being one of Jesus' great great grandmothers.
Glory to Jesus, look how the prophet Isaiah told us how Jesus receives and saves any stranger or nation that comes to Jesus. Isaiah 56:3 tells us Neither let the son of the stranger that hath joined himself to the Lord speak saying The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people. Isaiah 56:6 says Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant. Even them will I bring to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer, their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people (notice Jesus' house of prayer is for all people, all nations, and any person from any country, culture, or nation). And finally, to all my friends that have left families and friends for Jesus, rejoice as we all say Psalm 27:10 that says When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
OK, for the next thought of this week's bible study, let's all praise Jesus for never changing and remaining the same forever as our loving faithful friend. People change, places change, and almost all things under heaven and earth change, but Jesus never changes. The clock pictured above might change in time, but Jesus who is the Word of God will remain forever and never change. Mark 13:31 tells us Heaven and earth shall pass away; but my words shall not pass away. Psalm 119:89 says For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.
OK, my friends everywhere as you read these next paragraphs you might want to get out a pen and paper and write down these bible verses that prove that Jesus never changes and remains forever as our faithful friend that loves us all forevermore. Malachi 3:6 says For I am the Lord, I change not. Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. 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 and yes Jesus Himself stated He was Almighty God.)
Psalm 90:2 says Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. And one of Brother Bob's all time favorite bible verses which in Jesus name I ask all my friends in the many nations to say and think about is Psalm 90:4 that says For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. And Peter told us at 2 Peter 3:8 But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
OK, here's even some more bible verses that prove that Jesus stays the same and will remain forever as our everlasting Saviour. Psalm 102:25 says Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed. But, thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. James 1:17 tells us Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness (defined as no change), neither shadow of turning. Psalm 33:11 tells us The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever. The thoughts of His heart to all generations.
OK, you might all say what is Brother Bob doing now with a picture of cattle on a hill. Well it is biblical and rejoice because Jesus your Father owns the cattle upon a thousand hills and can provide for all your needs. Saint in any nation reading this, Jesus is your provider and provides for all believers. Hebrews 13:6 tells us So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. Brother Bob remembers twenty years ago when Brother Bob could not pay the rent to the landlord and as I was almost dead for fear of being cast into the streets, Jesus had Brother Bob just say Philippians 4:19 But my God (not family, friends, church, or any person) shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus and life came into Brother Bob's body and Brother Bob was strengthened. In a short time, my little brother Dave came to my rescue and gave me an apartment to live in fully paid. Psalm 37:25 says I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
The bible verse about the picture above is at Psalm 50:10 and as you read this realize that Jesus owns everything and there is nothing too difficult for Jesus as He provides for all your needs. Psalm 50:10 says For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains and the wild beasts of the field are mine. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee. for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. Psalm 89:11 tells us The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine. as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
Now a question was asked at Psalm 78:19 that says Yea, they spake against God, they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? Brother Bob says the answer to this question is God Can. Jesus proved this when He fed the multitudes with just two fish and five loaves of bread. And Jesus not only supplied the crowds with food but provided exceedingly abundantly above what the crowds needed by creating leftover fragments to be gathered. Mark 8:19 says When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him twelve. And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said seven. Isaiah 59 says Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear. Remember saint reading this Jesus can create something out of nothing. Remember the widow at Zarephath in 1 Kings 17 who had food appear out of nowhere during the drought because she was faithful and fed the prophet Elijah her last portion of food.
How about these wonderful pictures above to end up this weeks bible study from Brother Bob of a lamb and a wolf that one day will dwell together in peace and no harm. What a wonderful day in the kingdom with Jesus when there will be everlasting peace where all animals will be tame and harm no one. When Brother Bob arrives at the kingdom after I first praise Jesus, Brother Bob wants to hug polar bears, lions, tigers, and leopards. Remember, Brother Bob says he wants to hug these animals in the kingdom and not on the earth.
OK, the bible verse that speaks about the above pictures where the lamb will dwell in peace with the wolf forevermore is at Isaiah 11:6 and reads The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid (goat), and the calf and the young lion and the fatling (animal prepared for slaughter) together and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed. their young ones shall lie down together. And the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp and the weaned child (child off the bottle) shall put his hand on the cockatrice den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. The prophet Hosea also saw the same vision as the prophet Isaiah and stated at Hosea 2:18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground, and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth and will make them to lie down safely.
