Jesus Our Only Answer
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.
