Saints for today's bible study as you all look at the picture above I want all my friends everywhere to know that Jesus with one word and prayer can heal instantly any problem that has existed for many years. The woman pictured above was bowed together for eighteen years and could in no wise lift up herself. Hallalujah, Jesus with one word healed this woman and immediately she was made straight. I claim in Jesus name for all my friends in the many nations that read this forevermore that need deliverance from any trouble that has been around them for years that by this prayer instantly that trouble will disappear and complete healing will occur immediately.
The story about the above picture is at Luke 13:10 and says And He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And behold there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
Remember saint reading this, Jesus has the last word on your health and blessings. Don't believe any bad report from a doctor saying that a person's life will end in a short amount of time. Whose report will you believe? We shall believe the report of the Lord that accordiing to Psalm 103:3 we all are healed of all diseases. Also remember that 1 Peter 2:24 says that by the stripes of Jesus we all are healed. It's interesting to note that in hebrew stripes is defined as any suffering or pain a person experiences. Saint reading this, Jesus at the cross by His stripes loved you and destroyed all your pains and sufferings as you remember Jesus Christ crucified with your hearts. Hebrews 4:15 says For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Notice this is a double negative so Jesus is touched with the feeling of your infirmities and at the cross by His stripes healed all your sicknesses by faith.
Doctors in the past have told Brother Bob he would not live past a certain age because of cancer and also that Brother Bob would be crippled for life and not be able to talk and preach Jesus. Hallelujah, Brother Bob did not believe the word of the doctor, but believed the word of Jesus. I remember sitting for two months where I could hardly open my mouth or eye but one day I focused on Jesus Christ crucified with my heart and instantly Jesus destroyed and crucified all sickness in my body and I was able to see clearly and preach again. I went back to that doctor and testified that I would preach the gospel of Jesus as Lord again as the doctor confirmed that I was cancer free with no paralysis in my speech.
So remember saint reading this anywhere, Jesus can heal and fix in one moment what man or doctors could not do for many years. Mark 10:27 tells us And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible. There was another woman in the bible who instantly was healed after struggling with an issue of blood for twelve years. For twelve years this woman paid doctors for a healing and got worse. But, one day the woman decided to reach out and touch the hem of Jesus' garment and immediately her fountain of blood was dried up. Jesus healed instantly what doctors could not do for twelve years.
The story about the woman with the issue of blood healed by Jesus is recorded at Mark 5:25 and says And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse. When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment. For she said, If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
Now saints everywhere as you look at the precious picture of the innocent baby lambs above, realize that Jesus chooses to use people that the world despises and considers weak and innocent like the little lambs. Saint reading this if you feel despised and rejected by this world, you are a prime candidate to be used by Jesus. Brother Bob has learned that the more anointed a person becomes as he draws closer to Jesus, the more the world separates and departs from that anointed person. Brother Bob tells people if each day you become more and more like the world, you are backsliding for a friend of the world is an enemy of God (James 4:4). But, if the world rejects you as you serve Jesus, you are growing in Jesus.
Jesus has greatly used Brother Bob who is a thin little insignificant Jew saved by Jesus to reach over 22000 people in many nations with the good news of the Lord Jesus crucified. I believe when we get to heaven and see the great prophets like Ezekial, Isaiah, and Jeremiah we all will be amazed to discover that Ezekial, Isaiah, and Jeremiah were just small little scrawny humble men used greatly by God. The reason Jesus uses people that in the world's eyes are weak and small is because this allows Jesus as God to get the glory instead of a proud, wise, and mighty person on the earth.
Take time to read 1 Corinthians 1:26 that says For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are. That no flesh should glory in His presence. 1 Corinthians 1:31 says That according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
Now notice that when the book of seven seals was opened in heaven, Jesus appeared as a weak little Lamb, instead of the mighty Lion of the tribe of Juda, to open the book of the seven seals. The Father was showing us all that Jesus was so powerful that even as an innocent Lamb crucified, Jesus had the power to open the book of the seven seals. Zechariah 4:6 tells us Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Saint reading this you might feel like a weak small tiny lamb, but remember with Jesus you can receive power to strengthen many as you deny yourself while Jesus is glorified as God.
The story about Jesus opening the book of the seven seals is recorded at Revelation 5:5 and says And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not, behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
To prove that Jesus uses what the world considers as weak and foolish, DL Moody wrote notice that Jesus chose a few weak ignorent Galilean fishermen to introduce the gospel to the nations. These fishermen like Peter and James were not mighty and wise in the world. This allowed Jesus instead of Peter and James to get the glory.
For the next part of today's bible study, Brother Bob wants all my friends everywhere to get out a pen and paper and write out the many scriptures that prove that Jesus is always with us to deliver, preserve, and keep us alive in peace forevermore. As you all look to the picture above of two sparrows, say aloud 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. Saint, if Jesus blesses and protects the tiny sparrows pictured above, Jesus will constantly watch over you to keep, preserve, and bless you always with joy and peace.
Jesus told Brother Bob to write out the many scriptures in the bible that prove that Jesus is always watching over us as He blesses us with constant peace. Isaiah 43:2 says When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee (notice Jesus says He will be with us through the waters), and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest throught the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Here's a couple of scriptures for my good friend Wes Strawser who loves the book of Job. Job 31:4 says Doth not He see my ways, and count all my steps? Job 34:21 says For His eyes are upon the ways of man, and He seeth all His goings.
And wow the prophet Isaiah says Jesus proves that he is always watching over us for Jesus as God engraves us all as believers forever in the palms of His hands. Isaiah 49:15 says 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 Jesus proves He is always with us for Matthew 28:20 says Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Saint I pray in Jesus name as you say Isaiah 41:10 great peace fills your life for Jesus is always with you to deliver and preserve you forevermore. Isaiah 41:10 says Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Philippians 4:5 says Let your moderation be known unto all men; The Lord is at hand (defined as Jesus is always near, giving you peace forevermore). Hebrews 13:5 says the Lord will never leave thee nor forsake thee.
Saints be encouraged and let Brother Bob prove to you by scripture that Jesus can reach all your countries constantly giving you peace from the outback of Australia, the islands of Papau New Guinea, the Amazon of Brazil, the Hudson Bay of northern Canada, and the deserts of Namibia who regularly read Brother Bob's book for Jesus. Jeremiah 23:24 says Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him; saith the Lord, Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. Proverbs 15:3 says The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Now take time to praise Jesus as you recite Psalm 139:7 that says Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
For my final picture and thought today, Brother Bob gives you all a picture of Nicodemus visiting Jesus at night to learn how to be born again. Let me state that we should love all people but disagree with wrong doctrines. Today, there is a wrong doctrine stated by the Jehovah Witnesses that states that Jesus is just a great teacher, prophet and man, denying Jesus to be God. Remarkably, Brother Bob discovered this week that Nicodemus around 2000 years ago acted like a modern day Jehovah Witness and just recognized Jesus as a teacher and not God.
John 3:1 says There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Wow, Nicodemus like the Jehovah Witnesses of today just recognized Jesus as a teacher from God, but not God. Remember saint reading this we must go into all the world and tell people that Jesus is God for no one can be saved until they confess with their mouth that Jesus is God and believe that Jesus died for them on the cross and rose again.
Remember 1 John 4 tells us all the test to know a true spirit which is the person will preach Jesus Christ come in the flesh. This in greek means that when anyone says Jesus is God come in the flesh it is of God but if the religion like Jehovah Witnesses says Jesus is not God come in the flesh, that religion is in error and is of the antichrist. Be encouraged friends everywhere. Let us all go everywhere proclaiming Jesus as God to win and save souls. Saint reading this get saved right now and do what Romans 10:9 says which is That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
As always, I've enjoyed writing this bible study. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.
Sunday, November 18, 2012
For today's bible study, Brother Bob starts off by asking you all a question. What was the last act Jesus did on this earth? If you look at the above scripture you will discover that Jesus' last act on this earth was to save a lost sinner who was the thief by Him on the cross. Jesus truly fulfilled what He spoke at Luke 5:32 that says I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Look at the words of the thief by Jesus at Luke 23:42 that says And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily, I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Saint reading this anywhere, remember what Jesus told us to do at Mark 16:15 that says And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Proverbs 11:30 tells us the fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Wow, isn't it incredible how the thief got saved by calling Jesus Lord right at the cross. Like the thief at Luke 23:43, saint reading this anywhere confess with your mouth now Jesus as Lord and believe Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again and be saved.
Notice, that the thief was drycleaned when he got saved, not needing to be baptized in water for salvation. Just by calling Jesus Lord at the cross and the thief's belief that Jesus died for him and rose again gave the thief salvation. The thief got saved by remembering his momma's preaching about deliverance from Joel 2:32 that says And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord (JESUS), shall be delivered; for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
Also, as we all think about the thief who was saved on the cross by Jesus, let's all read Romans 4:5 that says But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Notice that the thief did not have to do good works to be saved. All the thief had to do was confess Jesus as Lord and believe Jesus died for him and rose again. DL Moody wrote the thief had nails through both hands, so that he could not work; and a nail through each foot, so that he could not run errands for the Lord; he could not lift a hand or a foot toward his salvation; and yet Jesus offered him the gift of God, and he took it. Jesus threw the thief a passport, and took him with Him into paradise.
Here's a couple of scriptures that prove that faith in Jesus and not works saves people. Titus 3:5 says Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. 1 Corinthians 13:3 says And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. This means without faith in charity or Jesus who is love and God, all our good works profit nothing.
Brother Bob has preached to many saying to obtain faith, one must constantly remember with their hearts Jesus Christ crucified, thanking Jesus daily for crucifying and destroying their worries and fears daily. You see Galatians 5:6 tells us faith which worketh by love. And let me tell all my friends in all the nations love is defined as Jesus Christ crucified for 1 John 3:16 says Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down his life for us(this refers to Jesus dying for you friend on the cross of Calvary.) You see Jesus did the work at the cross, destroying the devil forevermore. 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. Well to sum it all up, to have faith and love where all things are possible, get Jesus who is God by remembering daily with your hearts Jesus Christ crucified for Jesus as God is love.
Let me state that the above picture reminds Brother Bob of when Mary anointed the feet of Jesus with costly spikenard. Like the little girl pictured above, friend reading this anywhere, show kindness to everyone around us while they are alive. What a blessing for the little girl to remember her grandmother with a gift of flowers while the grandmother was alive. Remember, just a phone call or a short letter of a simple kind word can heal and strengthen a person greatly. Mary in the bible showed kindness to Jesus while Jesus was alive and not at Jesus' gravesite.
Friend take time to read the story of how Mary blessed Jesus, valuing Jesus more than money or a material possession of costly spikenard. In Jesus name, Lord let all those who forevermore read this bible study, like Mary value the Lord Jesus more than any money, material thing, or anything this world has to offer. John 12:3 says Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, why was not this ointment sold for 300 pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. Then said Jesus, Let her alone; against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
Friend, learn a lesson from Mary and her kind act to Jesus. Don't wait to say kind words about a person after that person is dead and gone. Like Mary, give your bouquets and flowers to a person while he or she lives and not later load down that person's coffin at a gravesite with your bouquets and flowers. To all my friends in the many nations that regularly read Brother Bob's book for Jesus, right now make up your mind to be like Mary and daily write and make phone calls saying kind words of prayers to encourage a fellow saint's day. May the Lord Jesus bless you all as we all follow Mary's example of showing kindness to the poor daily, thereby blessing Jesus.
You might all say what is Brother Bob doing now with a picture of beautiful sequoia trees above. How can this be biblical. Well let me state that these towering sequoia trees reminded Brother Bob of the tree of life which is Jesus (the way, the truth, and the LIFE) in the kingdom. Saints take time to meditate on John 3:3 that says Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 1:11-13 tells us how to be born again and says He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name; Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. So according to John 1:11-13, a man is born again (born of God) when that man believes on the name of Jesus Christ or believes that Jesus is God for Jesus is defined as Jehovah saves and Christ is defined as Messiah Anointed with the same meaning as Emmanuel God With Us As The Messiah. Please research this out for yourselves on blueletterbible by looking up the names Christ and Emmanuel in greek (both meaning Messiah God With Us) and you will discover that Jesus is God come in the flesh.
Now remember saint reading this anywhere, you must be born again to see the kingdom. And let me state that the sights in the kingdom are so much more spectacular than any sight we could witness on this earth. As you look at the picture above of the giant sequoias, let me quote DL Moody who wrote You might see many beautiful trees on this earth like the tall cedars and giant sequoias, but you must be born again to see the most magnificent tree of life (Jesus) in the kingdom.
You might look upon beautiful mansions and elegant palaces on this earth, but you must be born again to see the mansions that Jesus has prepared for his saints in the kingdom. You may see 10000 beautiful things in this world, but the glorious city named new Jerusalem that Abraham as a pilgrim and sojourner caught a glimpse of shall never be seen by a person unless he or she is born again. You might view the spectacular fading crowns that Napoleon and Caesar wore on this earth, but you must be born again to receive your own crown of life that will never perish away.
OK, Brother Bob wanted to show all my friends two pictures above of two beautiful sights on this earth. Pictured above are Niagara Falls and Schonnbrun Palace in Vienna Austria. Schonnbrun Palace is considered one of the most expensive palaces on the earth and Niagara Falls is considered to be the most phenomenal waterfall to be seen in any nation. But, let me prove to you all that the sights in the kingdom are more spectacular than Niagara Falls and Schonbrunn Palace.
The Apostle Paul stated that words can not describe how beautiful the kingdom with Jesus appears. 2 Corinthians 12:4 says How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. As you look at the above pictures, note that DL Moody said you might see beautiful rivers and waterfalls like Niagara Falls on this earth, but you must be born again to see the river which bursts out from the throne of God and flows through the upper kingdom. You might visit kings and queens in palaces on this earth, but you must be born again to see Jesus the King of kings and Lord of lords. You may be invited to many marriage feasts on this earth, but you will never attend the marriage supper of the Lamb except you are born again.
Now let me state there is a song only sung in the kingdom that you can only hear by being born again called the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb. DL Moody stated you may hear the songs of Zion sung here on earth, but you must be born again to hear the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb sung only in the kingdom. The uncircumcised ear shall never hear the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb. Its melody will only gladden the ear of those who have been born again.
Saint reading this anywhere I am going to write out now for you the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb in our bibles and in Jesus name Lord Jesus grant peace and healing to all who sing this song forevermore as they read Brother Bob's book for Jesus. The Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb is recorded forever at Revelation 15:2 and says And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire; and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, (this refers to you believing saint in Jesus as God), stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the Song of Moses, the servant of God, and the Song of the Lamb, saying, (Now saints sing these words and receive peace, healing, and strength) Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty, just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? For thou only art holy, for all nations shall come and worship before thee, for thy judgments are made manifest. Let me state that the judgments made manifest is Jesus made manifest in the flesh as God.
For Brother Bob's next picture, notice how Jesus as God controlled nature and how the fig tree withered at just a word from Jesus as God. Let me prove to you all that Jesus is God and as God controls nature. When God in Genesis 1 spoke to nature, nature obeyed God. God said let there be light and there was light. God said Let the waters bring forth and the waters brought forth abundantly. Jesus is God because Jesus as God spoke to nature like the fig tree above and the fig tree withered and obeyed the word from Jesus.
The story about the above picture is at Mark 11:13 and says And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. Now notice the result at Mark 11:20 that says And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
Jesus was God and like God could speak to nature and have nature obey His words. The wind and sea obeyed the word of Jesus as God for Mark 4:39 says And He arose and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark 4:31 says And they feared exceedingly, and said, one to another. What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?Notice also that Jesus as God spoke to devils, and the devils fled. Jesus as God spoke to the grave, and the grave obeyed Him and gave back its dead.
Now I want you friend reading this in any nation to think on the fact that if nature obeys the word of Jesus, we as believers should also believe and obey every word spoken in our bibles by Jesus. Take time saints to meditate on 1 Samuel 15:22 that says And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice; and to hearken than the fat of rams. I pray in Jesus name, that all saints who read this forevermore will like nature immediately obey and respond to the Word of Jesus as God in our bibles.
For Brother Bob's final thought for today please read Genesis 15:1 that says After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision saying, Fear not, Abram; I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. DL Moody stated that I'd rather have Jesus the God of heaven as my Protector than all the armies and navies of this world. Romans 8:31 says What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Isaiah 59:19 says So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard (defined in hebrew that the devil will disappear and flee quickly) against him.
As always Brother Bob lives to write these bible studies for all my friends in the many nations everywhere. I pray in Jesus name that these bible studies give life and peace forevermore to all who read these words given to Brother Bob from the Lord Jesus. Please email Brother Bob anytime at email@example.com or write to Brother Bob at Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up the name of our Lord Jesus, have a blessed day in Jesus name.
Sunday, November 4, 2012
Everyone, I pray that the picture above blesses you all to know that only Jesus can be trusted in this life. Take a good look at the little boy in green in the back of the picture running to Jesus for help. Like the little children above making Jesus their only hope, let's all remember what is said at Psalm 121 that 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. 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 our own strength and thoughts will fail and only faith daily in Jesus crucified with our hearts will deliver us all from troubles. Look at how the Word shows that we can not trust in ourselves where 2 Corinthians 1:9 says But, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead. Look at the payoff for trusting totally in the Lord Jesus at Proverbs 3:5. Proverbs 3:5 tells us Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes, fear the Lord, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel (defined in hebrew as calm your nerves) and marrow to thy bones (defined in hebrew as refreshing your body like a cup of refreshing cold water).
This scripture made me think of Proverbs 25:25 that says As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country. And guess what, the good news is the gospel (defined as the death on the cross and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ at 1 Corinthians 15:1-4) which is so refreshing as a cup of cold water to a thirsty soul. Romans 1:16 says For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Now remember the title of this message that only Jesus can be trusted. DL Moody wrote that friends can not be trusted because friends can die, leave us, or turn against us and not deliver us. Those people that trust in being famous with a popular reputation can be disappointed by a slandering tongue. Wealth, gold, and sliver can not be trusted for money and riches will take wings and fly away. Proverbs 23:5 says Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Ezekial 7:19 says 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.
Saint reading this in any nation, realize that only Jesus can be trusted. I pray in Jesus name that right now any person reading this will confess Jesus as God and believe that Jesus died for them and rose again in their hearts and be saved. Saint reading this Brother Bob guarantees to you that only Jesus will never fail you. I want all my friends to say out loud and memorize the following bible verse that proves that only Jesus can be trusted. Numbers 23:19 says God is not a man that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent; hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
Brother Bob must testify that sometimes when I travel it always amazes me how cities and people change and can not be trusted. People change, places change, families change, and nature changes. But hallelujah you can bank on Jesus to be trusted for Jesus will never change and Jesus will always be there by your side to bless you all. Malachi 3:6 says For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Psalm 16:8 says I have set the Lord always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Now for my next picture above we see Elisha rewarded for continuing to seek a blessing from Elijah, getting a double portion of the Spirit from Elijah's mantle that fell to the ground from the burning chariot of fire as Elijah rose to heaven. As we all trust in Jesus, we all should say with Elisha at 2 Kings 2:2 As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee Lord Jesus. Notice the cities at 2 Kings 2:2 that Elisha had to travel through to receive a double portion of the Spirit. First Gilgal meaning rolling wheel where saints must keep moving daily for Jesus and not be lazy doing nothing. Second Bethel meaning the house of God where saints must daily fellowship with Jesus in their bodies which is the temple of God. Third Jericho meaning moon or a dark place where saints must ignore the dark persecutions in their lives while they continually praise Jesus daily. Finally, Jordan meaning descending where saints must be willing to humble themselves so Jesus can exalt them in due season. Remember Proverbs 18:12 tells us Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.
There are many scriptures in the Word of God that tell us to be like Elisha pictured above and keep seeking Jesus daily with our whole heart to find and receive blessings. Jeremiah 29:13 says And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Wow, look at Job's faith and determination to trust in Jesus as his own wife told him to curse God and die as Job suffered with boils all over his body scraping the boils off with a potsherd. Hallelujah, through the suffering, Job said at Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in Him. 2 Timothy 1:12 says For the which cause I also suffer these things; nevertheless, I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day. Hallelujah, Philippians 1:6 says Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Friends in the many nations, I want you all to meditate on the following bible verses that prove a definite reward for a person's determination to daily keep seeking for Jesus as they rejoice through the troubles around them in this wicked world. Job 22:21 says Acquaint now thyself with Him and be at peace, thereby good shall come unto thee. Isaiah 55:6 say Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. Psalm 9:10 says And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; for thou Lord hast not forsaken them that seek thee. Isaiah 26:3 says Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusteth in thee.
OK, after telling all my friends in the many nations to trust only in Jesus, saint reading this right now Brother Bob has three words for you Come To Jesus for as pictured above Jesus will receive you all. In the world in your countries, people might cast you out or reject you, but Jesus accepts whosoever will come to 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 (note the bible says whosoever and this speaks to anyone who reads this bible study forevermore) will, let him take the water of life freely. God's Word is true and Jesus will not cast away anyone that comes to Him for everlasting life and eternal blessings. John 6:37 says All that the Father giveth me shall come to me, and him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out.
Brother Bob says it does not matter who you are or where you are reading this; if you call on the Lord Jesus and believe Jesus died for you and rose again you will be saved. Jesus will save whosoever comes to Him by faith. This is proven by Romans 10:13 that says For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. I pray in Jesus name, everyone reading this forevermore will do what King David said at Psalm 116:13 and say I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. Now Brother Bob wants everyone to say right now I believe you Lord Jesus and call on the name of Jesus and I claim in Jesus name salvation to all who do this by faith. I truly believe that when Brother Bob gets to the kingdom, I'll see all the souls that were saved in the many nations that regularly looked at Brother Bob's book for Jesus. This gives Brother Bob's life fulfillment and causes Brother Bob to rejoice as an instrument for Jesus to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the world. I must rejoice and testify that now Brother Bob's book for Jesus is now being seen by the aborigines in the Australian outback, the indians in the Brazilian jungle, and the eskimos in northern Manitoba Canada.
Brother Bob now asks all my friends everywhere to open their bibles to Psalm 91:14-16 and memorize these promises of blessings you will receive if you set your love upon the Lord Jesus trusting totally in the Lord Jesus. Psalm 91:14-16 says Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.Remember Jesus is so good and gives us all much much more than our requests. This is proven by Psalm 21:4 where King David asked for life and wow King David received length of days for ever and ever. Psalm 21:4 says He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him even length of days for ever and ever.
Now Brother Bob wants to share a revelation from Jesus about what is on the hem of the robe of our High priest Jesus. Did you know that pomegranates and golden bells pictured above were on the hem of the high priest's robe when the high priest went into the holy place to minister to receive mercy for the sins of the people. The high priest would shake his robe making the golden bells ring to let the people know that the high priest was alive. Hallelujah, the golden bells are ringing forevermore in heaven for Jesus our High Priest has arisen from the dead and is alive forevermore in the kingdom.
The bible verse about the picture above is at Exodus 28:33 and says And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof, and bells of gold between them round about. A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about. And it shall be upon Aaron to minister; and his sound shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the Lord, and when he cometh out, that he die not.
And the good news is that Jesus as our high priest forevermore, unlike earthly priests of ancient times, constantly prays for all believers and saints to be blessed and overcome this world. This is proven by Hebrews 7:25 that 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. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens. And remember the Father hears and answers the righteous Jesus prayers for you friend reading this for James 5:16 says The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much because according to 1 Corinthians 1:30 Jesus is righteousness. When you get time, read John 17 which is Jesus' prayer for all the saints which the Father hears and totally answers hallelujah.
For my final picture today, Brother Bob gives you a picture of the father of the prodigal son running to his son and receiving him again as a blessed member of his family. Now note that the father ran to the lost son who returned home. Saint reading this come to Jesus right now and confess Jesus as Lord and believe Jesus died for you and rose again and Jesus will run to you, save you, and bless you greatly. The story about the above picture is at Luke 15:20 and says And he arose, and came to his father. But, when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him Father, I have sinned against heaven and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. but, the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him and put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet; And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it and let us eat and be merry.
To end up today's bible study, let's all look at what the prophet Hosea stated about how Jesus will overlook and forgive all our sins if we like the prodigal son return to our Lord Jesus as our Father. Take time to meditate on the prophet Hosea's words at Hosea 14 that says O Israel, return unto the Lord thy God, for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity. Take with you words, and turn to the lord, say unto Him, Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously. So will we render the calves of our lips. Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses; neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods; for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy. I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely; for mine anger is turned away from him. I will be as the dew unto Israel, he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. His branches shall spread and his beauty shall be as the olive tree and his smell as Lebanon. They that dwell under his shadow shall return, they shall revive as the corn and grow as the vine; the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
Finally, look at what the prophet Jeremiah says about the blessings people will receive if they return to Jesus. Brother Bob says as you read this to not be afraid to return to Jesus no matter what sin you have done in this world. God's word is true and as you read the words of Jeremiah, return to Jesus and Jesus will remove all your sin and receive and bless you greatly. Jeremiah 3:12 says Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you; for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord. Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord, for I am married unto you; and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion. Brother Bob truly feels like John the Baptist and the prophet Isaiah at Isaiah 58 saying Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. As John the Baptist would say, Brother Bob also says repent now and come to Jesus and be saved all my friends in the many nations.
