Keep Watching For Jesus
Brother Bob starts out this weeks bible study by saying to all my friends in the many nations keep awake and watching for Jesus. Notice in the above picture that the disciples of Jesus could not watch and pray for only one hour to protect Jesus but were all asleep allowing Jesus to be crucified. The scripture referring to the above picture is at Matthew 26:40 and says And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation, the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Brother Bob tells all my friends everywhere, live every day in holiness, denying sin, as if Jesus is coming back the next second. No man knows the day or the hour when Jesus will return to have His angels gather his elect to be with Him in the kingdom, except the Father in heaven. Therefore be alert, wake up, and live every day in holiness and be ready at all times for the return of Jesus. 2 Corinthians 7:1 says Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Titus 2:12-13 tells us Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Brother Bob once heard an anointed preacher say look at just two words in Titus 2:12-13 that are live looking. Try it and say live looking live looking live looking. To live keep looking for Jesus and say the next bible verse out loud and rejoice as you see what occurs when you look for Jesus. Hebrews 9:28 says So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
You see if you live every day as if Jesus is coming back the next second, you will not sin, thereby purifying yourself to be ready for the return of Jesus. This is proven by 1 John 3:2-3 that says Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure.
So Brother Bob says to himself and all my friends in the many nations wake up, stay alert, deny sin, and keep watching for the soon return of Jesus. Revelation 16:15 tells us Behold, I come as a thief; Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame. Jesus is coming soon to be the King of kings and says at Revelation 22:20 Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so Come. Lord Jesus.
Brother Bob prays in Jesus name like King David that our one desire is to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of our lives. Psalm 27:4 says One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple. If any saint reading this is discouraged from the troubles and persecutions of this world, fix the eyes of your heart on Jesus and I gurarantee you will have the strength to live on as Jesus blesses you.
Brother Bob feels like King David when Psalm 27:13 says I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord, in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart, wait, I say on the Lord. Remember one day with Jesus in the kingdom is better than a thousand days in wealth on this earth. It's better to be a doorkeeper with Jesus in the kingdom than to dwell in tents of wickedness. Psalm 84:10 tells us For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand; I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield. The Lord will give grace and glory, no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
How about the above picture of the five foolish virgins spoken of at Matthew 25:10 who thought they could use money to buy their way into the kingdom. The foolish virgins could not enter into the kingdom because they loved money more than Jesus. It's either Jesus or money. Which one will you choose. Brother Bob says to all saints reading this everywhere in the many nations, choose Jesus instead of money. Matthew 6:24 tells us 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 (money).
The scripture that talks about the above picture of the foolish virgins is at Matthew 25:10 and says And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with Him to the marriage, and the door was shut. Afterward, came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But, He answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. I pray in Jesus name, that any person in any nation that reads this forever will love Jesus instead of money and enter the kingdom forever with Jesus and not see a shut door to the kingdom like the foolish virgins pictured above.
In Brother Bob's experiences, usually the people that persecute a person preaching Jesus crucified and living for Jesus are people who love money. 1 Timothy 6:10 tells us For the love of money is the root of all evil; which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. You might say why do some people persecute and try to stop true saints from preaching Jesus Christ crucified. Jesus told Brother Bob that the reason for this is that when Jesus is lifted up, people can not receive fame or have their names in lights. Religious people who want to be seen and have their names in lights instead of Jesus are the ones that persecute true saints lifting up Jesus. It takes a humble person to tell others to lift up Jesus and not lift up people or themselves. Jesus spoke at John 12:32 saying And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 1 Corinthians 1:31 tells us That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
Brother Bob encourages all my friends everywhere to wake up, be sober, be alert and ready for the soon return of Jesus. Here's some scriptures that warn us not to sleep but to stay alert for the return of Jesus. Proverbs 6:9 says How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man. Proverbs 20:13 warns us Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. 1 Peter 5:8 says Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
OK, saint reading this anywhere, take a good look at the pictures above of much fine gold and honey from the honeycomb. Just meditate on this revelation. Jesus is so much better to have than any unlimited supply of fine gold and Jesus is so much sweeter than honey and the honeycomb. Psalm 19:10 talks about the Word of God Jesus and says Jesus is more to be desired than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
I suggest to all my friends everywhere to read a book from the 1600's by a great christian writer John Bunyan titled the heavenly footman which speaks about how we should daily look to Jesus to assist us on our journey to the eternal kingdom. After reading the heavenly footman, Brother Bob will now give you many bible verses on how blessed Jesus is to encourage my friends as they walk this journey to the kingdom.
Lift up your hands and praise Jesus right now as you say Psalm 104:34 that says my meditation of Him shall be sweet; I will be glad in the Lord. Also realize that the joy one has with Jesus is so much better than any joy people in the world around us are experiencing. This is proven by Psalm 4:7 that says Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
Now as you all look to Jesus, praise Jesus for being wisdom stated in 1 Corinthians 1:30. I tell kids in college if you want to be smart learn more and more about Jesus and the Word of God which is wisdom. Brother Bob graduated law school after seven years of study but after Brother Bob got saved, I realized that the wisdom of the world was foolishness and only Jesus and the Word is true wisdom. People will tell Brother Bob, you need a DD Doctor of Divinity to preach. I tell them I have my DD, I'm a devil disturber and don't need to go to the cemetery or seminary for qualifications. Then they tell me I need a PHD. I tell them I have my PHD. I have a pentecostal hairdo. Then they tell me I need a BA. I tell them I have my BA. I'm Born Again. 1 John 2:27 tells us But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. Sometimes people tell Brother Bob you talk too much about Jesus. If anyone ever says to you that you talk too much about Jesus reply to them Correction, I don't talk enough about Jesus and thanks for the compliment as you leap for joy.
Colossians 2:2 also tells us that Jesus is wisdom by saying That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ. In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Now since Jesus is wisdom, when King Solomon in the book of proverbs asked for wisdom, Solomon received Jesus and obtained riches, honour, length of days, peace and pleasantness. Now as Brother Bob quotes Proverbs 4:5 when you see wisdom put the name Jesus where the word wisdom appears. Proverbs 4:5 says Get wisdom, get understanding, forget it not, neither decline from the words of my mouth. Now look at the reward you will receive as you obtain wisdom or Jesus as Proverbs 4:12 says When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened (defined as cramped or destressed) and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
As a final thought for today's bible study, I must give you all an anointed revelation Jesus gave personally to Brother Bob this week about olive oil. As I've stated before daily and whenever Jesus tell you to, anoint yourself and the bottoms of your shoes with olive oil to be raised up, saved, and forgiven of sins according to James 5:14-15. But take a look now at Psalm 23:5 that says Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies, thou anointest my head with olive oil, my cup runneth over (defined as abundantly wealthy.) Wow, I claim in Jesus name for all my friends in the many nations that daily anoint themselves and others with olive oil that abundant riches and wealth enrich every area of their lives.
I enjoyed writing this bible study today. Hallelujah, I have a new flag counter on my book for Jesus and can see the cities and countries that daily read Brother Bob's book for Jesus. Thank you to these cities and people for supporting Brother Bob and may Jesus bless you and your country greatly. Opperdoes Netherlands, Madras, India, Makati, Phillipines, Bangalore, India, Taipei, Taiwan, Pietersburg, South Africa, Sao Paulo, Brazil, Rainham, Great Britain, Kampala, Uganda, Kenya, Yokohama, Japan, Homogama, Sri Lanka, Hanoi, Vietnam, USA, and Toronto Canada. I know Jesus is using Brother Bob for my book for Jesus is reaching all cultures everywhere and this proves that the true anointing reaches all nations and cultures for Jesus. Revelation 22:17 says And the Spirit and the bride say Come, And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. Whosoever speaks to all peoples, nations, and countries everywhere.
