Today's bible study is special and as you read the many scriptures in this bible study praise the Lord Jesus for his majesty and power. I encourage all my friends everywhere to take time to look at the above picture of Jesus walking on the wings of the wind as he rides on the clouds which is His chariot. Psalm 104:3 says Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters; who maketh the clouds His chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind. Praise our Lord Jesus as you read Proverbs 30:4 that says Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is His name, and what is His son's name, if thou canst tell. Now friend reading this anywhere take a minute to praise Jesus for His power as you meditate on the vision of our Lord Jesus walking on the wings of the wind as He gathers the wind in His fists as he rides His chariot on the clouds of heaven.
Take time to read a wonderful commentary from Oliver Heywood from 1672 about Psalm 104:3 that says If this vast globe of the earth be above 20000 miles in compass, then of what a vast extent are the heavens, which are stretched out as a curtain! How admirably hath God laid the beams of His chambers in the waters, and suspended the earth upon nothing! How firmly hath He built His stories in the heavens, and fixed the glorious constellations as fountains of light! Oh what beauty there must be in the Father of lights that hath set up the resplendent luminaries! These great bodies were created of nothing by the word of God's power; while there are deep mysteries in the least and lowest creature; every herb, flower, plant, spire of grass, twig or leaf, worm or fly, scale or feather, billow or meteor, hath enough in it to puzzle the most profound philosopher, and speaks the power and wisdom of our great Creator.
Now friend take time to pause and meditate on one of Brother Bob's favorite bible verses at Isaiah 40:12 that exemplifies the majesty of our Lord Jesus. Isaiah 40:12 says Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and meted out heaven with the span (meted means measured and span means the size of a man's hand; wow Jesus measured the heavens and stretched out the heavens with just the size of His hand) and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? Now look at Isaiah 40:15 that says Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance; behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing. Isaiah 40:17 then says All nations before Him are as nothing; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity. I once saw a writing that said I'd rather have Jesus as my protector than all the armies of every nation in the world. Friend reading this anywhere as you believe in Jesus as your Lord you receive the blessings of Abram stated at Genesis 15:1 that says the Lord Jesus is your shield and your exceeding great reward. And finally to prove the tremendous power of our Lord Jesus look at Job 26:7 that says He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
OK you might say why is Brother Bob putting a picture above of the earth as seen from heaven. I've done this to have you praise the Lord Jesus again for His majesty as He sits on the circle of the earth viewing the inhabitants thereof as grasshoppers. Look at Isaiah 40:22 that says It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in. That bringeth the princes to nothing, He maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. Now look at Isaiah 40:26 that says Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth. Now friend remember whenever you see the word host in the bible it means army of angels and Jesus is the commander general of this great army of angels and is called the Lord of sabaoth defined as the Lord of the armies of Israel at James 5:4.
Now friend reading this remember as you meditate daily on Jesus with your heart, since Jesus is the word, say daily that all the promises of the Word are mine because Jesus is forever in my heart by faith. Claim the seven blessings that Jesus as our Lord is for yourselves that are listed in Psalm 18. Praise Jesus and receive the seven blessings of Psalm 18:2 that says I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust, my buckler(defined as a shield and defence), and horn of my salvation(defined as the strength of your salvation), and my high tower. Proverbs 18:10 tells us The name of the Lord (Jesus) is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
The prophet Amos also wrote about the spectacular glory of our Lord Jesus and at Amos 9:5 said And the Lord God of hosts is He that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn; and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. It is He that buildeth his stories(defiined as the stairs of a ladderway) in the heaven, and hath founded His troop in the earth; He that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth; The Lord is His name. After reading this I need to write out Psalm 29:2 and tell you all to obey Psalm 29:2 that says Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. The reason for our praise is stated at Psalm 73:26 that says My flesh and my heart faileth; but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. Finally, Brother Bob wants to give all my friends a cure for depression. Whenever you feel depressed just memorize and say Psalm 42:5 that says Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.
I pray that in Jesus name all my friends and myself can be like King David and make the Lord Jesus more important than anything in our lives as we worship and praise Jesus as Lord daily. Take time to look how David placed Jesus as Lord first in his life above everything at Psalm 132:1 that says Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions; How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob, Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids; until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob. David placed Jesus above everything in his life, even above sleep. Brother Bob tells people to sleep for just about 7 hours daily and to wake up early and keep moving for Proverbs 20:13 says Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. If you want to find Jesus you must wake up early so try to wake up maybe a half hour earlier than your normal schedule to find Jesus. This is proven at Proverbs 8:17 that says I love them that love me, and those that seek me early shall find me.
Now Brother Bob wants to share with my friends a mystery revealed from Jesus about the story pictured above of when Jacob tried to bow before Esau and calm Esau's anger by offeriing gifts to bless Esau. Esau told Jacob to keep his blessing because he had enough. But it is interesting to note that in English Jacob also stated that he had enough and convinced Esau to take his blessing. Well what a revelation to see the hebrew definitions of have enough and you will find that when Esau said he had enough it meant much but when Jacob (who represents you and I friend as the true saints) said he had enough it meant in hebrew all, the whole, the totality and everything. You see friend in any nation reading this if you look around and it seems the wicked are prospering with much around you, remember that Jesus in a true saint is more than much and gives us totality and everything we need in glorious riches forevermore that never fade away in the everlasting kingdom of God. Let us all say right now Praise you Lord Jesus I'd rather have the Lord Jesus than anything that this fading world has to offer.
Take time to read Genesis 33:8 about the picture above of Jacob and Esau that says And he said, what meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord. And Esau said I have enough (defined as much), my brother, Keep that thou hast unto thyself. And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand; for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me. Take I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough (defined as all, the whole, the totality, and everything). And he urged him, and he took it.
Remember friend reading this godliness with contentment is great gain and not just much. Wicked men in this world might have much, but godly men have everything and all things with the Lord Jesus. 1 Timothy 6:6 tells us But godliness with contentment is great gain (more than much or everything). Oliver Heywood in 1663 stated that a saints modicum or little amounts to more than a wicked man's multum or large revenues. This is proven by Psalm 37:16 that says a little that a righteous man has is better than the riches of many wicked. Proverbs 17:1 says Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. Proverbs 15:17 says Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
To end up todays bible study take a look at the blessed picture above of Nathaniel under the fig tree saying Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth in response to Philip's invitation for him to come and see the Lord Jesus. The reason Brother Bob placed this picture in his book for Jesus was to show that after a man or woman gets saved they will want to win souls to Jesus and become fishers of men. Hallelujah, Jesus has blessed Brother Bob with a desire to share the good news of our Lord Jesus on this internet to hundreds of nations and has fulfilled this dream by allowing this book for Jesus to reach every continent on this earth. I pray in Jesus name all who forevermore read this bible study will have a desire to win souls to Jesus and share with all nations the good news of our Lord Jesus as we see multitudes saved as they believe in the Lord Jesus. Proverbs 11:30 tells us The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
To prove that wanting to win souls to the Lord Jesus occurs in every believer after they get saved lets see how Andrew after he got saved led Peter to Jesus, and how Philip after he got saved led Nathaniel to Jesus. First look at John 1:40 that shows how Andrew led Peter to Jesus and says One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's borther. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him we have found the Messias, which is being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus, and when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon, the son of Jona; thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, a stone. Now look at John 1:43 that shows how Philip led Nathaniel to Jesus and says The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathaniel, and saith unto him we have found Him of whom Moses in the law and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathaniel said unto him Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
And finally to prove that after any person gets saved that they will want to win souls to Jesus, look at how that after the prostitute at the well got saved how she led many in the city of Samaria to Jesus. John 4:28 tells us The woman, then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city; and saith to the men, Come, see a man which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city, and came unto Him. And even the nut who was delivered of the legion demons in the tombs, after he got saved had a desire to win the lost to Jesus and wrote and published books stating to an entire city the wonderful things Jesus had done for him. This is proven at Luke 8:38 that says Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought Him that he might be with Him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him. After Brother Bob wrote this I pray that sometime soon on this earth or in heaven Jesus will let me and all my friends everywhere see and read these wonderful writings from the man of the tombs who was delivered of the legion demon. Jesus has told me that these writings are special and are preserved somewhere for the Word of God and anointed writings for Jesus will last forever.
