Revealed Blessings From Jesus
Today, Brother Bob is going to share some revealed secrets taught to him by the anointing and our Lord Jesus Christ. Let me state that we can see the Lord Jesus throughout the old and new testaments. Whenever we read a story in the old testament, the Holy Ghost will always show us a corresponding story in the new testament that leads to a greater knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For example, the above picture of Moses holding up his hands so Joshua could win a battle against the Amelekites reminds us of Jesus holding out his hands on the cross to give us all victory over any battle in this world as Jesus says It is finished.
The story about the above picture can be found at Exodus 17:9 and says And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek; to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, When Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy, and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
According to the story above it was the prayers of Moses as he raised his hands that allowed Joshua to have victory and defeat the Amalekite enemy. We can see a picture of Jesus in this story. Jesus' hands were also raised up for us all at the cross of calvary and according to Hebrews 2:14 at the cross where Jesus died the devil was destroyed forevermore. Hebrews 2:14 proclaims that through death He (Jesus) might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.
Jesus like Moses is constantly praying for you friend and the effectual fervant prayer of the righteous man, the Lord Jesus, gives us all victory constantly over the devil. Hebrews 7:25 proves this and 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. I'm glad the above verse says Jesus lives forevermore to constantly pray for us and we should all rejoice for Jesus' continual prayers for us give us all victory in every area of our lives. Right now wherever you are take time to wave your hands at Jesus and thank Jesus for His prayers that give us all everlasting victory over the devil and this world. As a final note, Jesus revealed to Brother Bob that Moses, Aaron, and Hur all praying for Joshua represent the Father, Son, And Holy Ghost (which are one in Jesus as Lord at the cross of calvary) all praying for us as we get victory over the devil and this world.
For my second revealed blessing from Jesus, Brother Bob gives all my friends the above picture of Zacchaeus that reminds me of Adam and Eve hiding behind fig leaves from God. Zacchaeus was also hiding behind the leaves of the sycomore tree from the Lord Jesus, but unlike God who punished Adam and Eve for their sin, the Lord Jesus loved Zacchaeus, forgiving all his sins as He said at Luke 19:5 Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down for to day I must abide at they house.
Friend reading this anywhere if you feel that your sin is too great for Jesus to forgive and love you, remember Jesus is a friend to sinners. Jesus said at John 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants, for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth; but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
The above blessed revelation was given to Brother Bob by his good friend, the former Son of Sam David Berkowitz. Like Paul praising Onesimus, a former criminal, to Philemon, Brother Bob speaks on behalf of David Berkowitz, a former criminal, and tells all my friends everywhere to take time and left click this link http://www.ariseandshine.org/ to read about David Berkowitz's testimony and blessed life for Jesus in prison. Take time to read what David Berkowitz wrote personally to Brother Bob about how Adam and Eve hiding behind fig leaves reminded him of Zaccheaus hiding behind the leaves of a sycomore tree. I pray in Jesus name this story from David Berkowitz blesses all my friends everywhere in the many nations. Hallelujah, David Berkowitz a former murderer sentenced for 365 years now is saved and is greatly used by Jesus to bless untold numbers with the glorious message of our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember 2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us Therefore if any man be in Christ, his is a new creature (defined as creation); old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.
David Berkowitz wrote the first sermon I ever gave was on Zacchaeus about 20 years ago in the chapel. My theme was that, while Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus, he didn't want Jesus to see him. Being up in that tree gave this rich tax collector a better view of the Lord Jesus, but at the same time the leaves of the tree gave Zacchaeus some covering with which to hide. He was too guilt ridden and did not want Jesus to see him, but of course the Lord Jesus did. Just like Adam and Eve, when they sinned they became riddled with guilt and fear. Later, when they heard the Lord's voice in the garden, they ran and hid from him, hiding in the bushes. Guilt makes us run away from the Lord, unworthy (or so we think) to stand before Him, and fearful of what God might do to us. But, as with Adam and Eve, and later with Zacchaeus, the Lord was the one to find us in our individual hiding spots. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:10). Friend reading this, no matter what sin you committed in the past, Jesus loves you and come to Jesus today by confessing Jesus as God believing in your hearts that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again and the blood of Jesus will wash away all your past sins to be remembered no more.
For Brother Bob's next revealed blessing from Jesus, I will show you how the story of Naaman being healed by dipping himself in the Jordan seven times instead of the Syrian rivers Abana and Pharpar reminds Brother Bob of how a man lame for thirty eight years was healed by the living water Jesus instead of the troubled waters of the pool of Bathesda. Initially, Naaman pictured above got angry with the prophet Elisha who told him that he would be healed of leprosy if he washed in the Jordan river seven times. Naaman wanted to wash instead in the rivers of Damascus named Abana and Pharpar but discovered that obeying God's instructions to wash in the Jordan seven times resulted in a complete healing.
We see the story about the above picture of how Naaman was healed at Jordan after initially wanting to wash at Abana and Pharpar at 2 Kings 5:10 that says And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh will come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. Naaman responded at 2 Kings 5:12 by saying Are not Abana and Pharpar (defined as swift like the troubled waters of the pool of Bathesda where people had to rush and be the first in the troubled waters to be healed), rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage. And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
The above story reminds Brother Bob of John 5 and the story of the man by the pool of Bethesda who had an infirmity for thirty eight years. Like Naaman who thought healing would occur by washing in the swift troubled waters of Pharpar in Damascus, this man for thirty eight years thought healing would occur if he dipped in the troubled waters at the pool of Bathesda. Like Naaman who discovered that God's instructions are better than our own ways, the man at the pool of Bathesda discovered that the living water Jesus was much better than his own plan to receive healing by the troubled waters of the pool of Bathesda.
The story of how the impotent man at the pool of Bathesda discovered that the living water Jesus could heal better than the troubled waters by the pool of Bathesda is recorded at John 5:7 and says The impotent man answered Him (Jesus), Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool; but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked; and on the same day was the sabbath.
For my next revealed blessing from Jesus as we all look at the above picture, Brother Bob wants to state that all children (black, chinese, white, and spanish) when they leave this earth are immediately living forevermore with Jesus in the kingdom of God (this also includes all the aborted babies who lose their lives by unjust laws that allow doctors to perform abortions). The bible scripture that proves that all children belong to Jesus and live forevermore in the kingdom with Jesus is at Luke 18:16 and says But Jesus called them unto Him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God.
You see life begins at conception and the bible proclaims that a baby in a womb is a person whose life should be protected against abortions. Look at what the Lord said to the prophet Jeremiah at Jeremiah 1:4 that says Then the word of the Lord came unto me saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. John the Baptist as a baby in the womb of Elizabeth was a person and this is proven when baby John leaped in the presence of baby Jesus in the womb of Mary. Luke 1:41 tells us And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost.
Finally, to prove to all my friends everywhere that aborted babies go immediately to the kingdom to live forevermore with Jesus, think about the story of what King David said after he lost a baby born to Bathsheba. King David stated he could go to the baby in the kingdom but the baby could not return to him. 2 Samuel 12:23 says But now he is dead (speaking of David's lost baby), wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
