Friends today Brother Bob is giving you all what he considers to be one of the most important bible studies he ever wrote. The picture above is of our Lord Jesus Christ offering his own blood at God's mercy seat that He shed for you friends to forever remove the separation from God because of our sins. You see Romans 3:23 tells us For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. The prophet Isaiah told us that because of our sins before we were saved and washed by the blood of Jesus, our sins separated us from God. Isaiah spoke this at Isaiah 59:1 that says Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear; But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.
Friend reading this anywhere, God has removed the separation from God because of our sins only by the Lord Jesus and the blood that our Lord Jesus shed at the cross for you. Brother Bob prays in Jesus name that anyone who forevermore reads this will get saved and confess Jesus as Lord and believe in their heart that Jesus died for them and rose again so they can never more be separated from God because of their sins. Rejoice and praise our Lord Jesus as you read the following scriptures that prove that only Jesus and Jesus' blood can remove sin forevermore. Hebrews 9:26 says For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world; but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 1 John 1:7 tells us But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Brother Bob states to all my friends everywhere that one of the most kindest acts of love ever displayed was when our Lord Jesus Christ took his own blood (not the blood of bulls and goats) that he shed at the cross and offered it as pictured above to the Father to remove our sins forever, allowing all believers now to boldly approach God with no guilt of their past sins. I asked Jesus years ago where in the bible does it say Lord that you took your own blood before the mercy seat to remove our sins and when Jesus showed me Hebrews 9:12, Brother Bob leaped for joy and ran around his apartment for joy for hours. Rejoice and read out loud Hebrews 9:12 that says Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
One more testimony from Brother Bob. If you ever feel guilty because of a sin you committed and you feel like you are not good enough to minister for Jesus because of any past sin or bad thoughts, just with your heart remember Jesus Christ crucified and say I am crucified with Christ (Galatians 2:20) and the blood of Jesus Christ has cleansed me from all sins. (1 John 1:7). Try this when you feel guilty because of past sins by looking to the cross of Jesus with your heart and watch the guilt flee from you as the blood of Jesus removes all your sins. Hallelujah, Hebrews 9:14 proves that the blood of Jesus will cleanse and remove a guilty conscience and says How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge (defined as cleanse) your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? One time on a job where Brother Bob worked a lady put a note on my desk that I was not a good example for Jesus because she saw sins in my life. Hallelujah, Brother Bob left a note in response for that lady to see that said Thank you Jesus for the blood that you shed that cleanses us all from all sin. Right now friend anywhere reading this take time to wave your hands and praise Jesus for shedding his blood to remove all the guilt of our sins.
You might ask why is Brother Bob putting a picture above of a smiling red cardinal standing on white snow. The answer is to represent that our sins that were red as scarlet have become white as snow and disappeared forever by the blood of Jesus. The prophet Isaiah spoke about this and said at Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord; though your sins be as scarlet (note that scarlet as a dye is impossible for man to remove its stain) (but what is impossible for man is possible with God and the blood of Jesus has removed our scarlet sins forevermore), they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.You see friend the blood of Jesus is your ticket that allows you to enter boldly with no guilty conscience into the holiest presence of our Lord Jesus. Hebrews 10:19 tells us Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus. Ephesians 2:13 tells us But now in Christ Jesus you who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Look at how the book of Romans proves that only Jesus can remove sin allowing us to receive boldness to approach God with no sin. At first, Romans 3:23 says our sins have separated us from God stating For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But take a look at the next verse Romans 3:24 proving that Jesus' blood takes away our sins forevermore removing the separation from God due to our sins. Romans 3:24 says Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption (defined as being released by payment of a ransom that was the blood of Jesus) that is in Christ Jesus, whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation (defined as sacrifice) through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission (defined as passing over and disregarding) of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.
Silver, gold, and vast amounts of money could not redeem or release us back to God and remove our sins. Only the precious blood of Jesus could release us back to God and forevermore remove our sins. This is proven by 1 Peter 1:18 that says Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. Ephesians 1:7 also says In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
Alright, you might all say now what is Brother Bob doing with a picture above of thousands of rams? As you look at the above picture of the many rams, realize that the sacrifice of thousands of rams can not please God to remove our sins. Only the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus at the cross and the blood of Jesus can remove our sins forevermore and allow us to boldly approach God free of all guilt. The prophet Micah asked a question at Micah 6:7 and said Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? The answer to Micah's question can be found in the new testament at Hebrews 10:8 that says Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldst not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Praise our Lord Jesus as you look at these further scriptures that prove that only Jesus and the blood of Jesus can remove our sins forevermore. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. Romans 5:9 says Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. Revelation 1:5 tells us Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood. And finally, Revelation 12:11 says the blood of Jesus will allow you to overcome the devil saying And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
To end up today's bible study, Brother Bob gives you an anointed picture I received from a chinese believer in Jesus showing the 24 elders around the throne of God singing praise to the Lord Jesus for redeeming many nations and people to God by His blood that was shed at the cross. Let us all be like the four beasts and four and twenty elders around the throne and constantly sing praise to our Lord Jesus for shedding his blood at the cross to redeem and remove our sins forevermore. Revelation 5:8 says And when He had taken the book the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints; And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof; for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto our God, kings and priests; and we shall reign on the earth.
After reading all these blessed scriptures we can joyfully state Romans 8:1 that says There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Saint right now state with joy Romans 8:33 Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Truly the apostle Paul penned a true quote at Colossians 1:20 when he stated And having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself, by Him, I say whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. Friend reading this anywhere, Jesus truly is the answer to everything and I pray in Jesus name anyone who reads this forevermore will obey the advice from the prophet Isaiah at Isaiah 55:7 that says Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.
