Sinners Saved By Grace
Friends for today's bible study Brother Bob gives you all another special message proving that we are all sinners needing the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ to save and deliver us all from our sins. In the picture above Peter is telling Jesus he does not need to be washed from his sins and allow Jesus to wash his feet. Take time to meditate on the response of Jesus to Peter at John 13:8 that says Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Friend reading this in any nation, remember if you do not allow Jesus to wash you you will have no part with Jesus. Right now repent of your sins and be saved by confessing Jesus as Lord as you believe in your hearts that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again.
Brother Bob like the prophet Isaiah states to all the nations Isaiah 58:1 and says Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. Friends, it's important to realize that we all need Jesus daily and must know that we are lost helpless sheep and sinners having no direction without Jesus. Jesus said at John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without me ye can do nothing. I pray in Jesus name all my friends everywhere can say Lord Jesus wash me constantly for I admit that I am a sinner that daily needs to be washed by you. After you daily do this, thank and praise Jesus for dying for you on the cross and giving you life and peace daily.
Take time to meditate on all the following scriptures that prove that we are sinners that must be washed daily by Jesus. Job stated at Job 9:30 If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean (defined as cleanness of hands); yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me. King David stated at Psalm 53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back; they are altogether become filthy, there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Romans 3:23 tells us For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Proverbs 30:12 says There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes; and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
The prophets also testified that we are sinners that must be washed daily by Jesus. The prophet Isaiah stated at Isaiah 1:6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head, there is no soundness in it. He also stated at Isaiah 64:6 But, we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf, and our iniquities like the wind, have taken us away. The prophet Jeremiah also stated at Jeremiah 2:22 For though thou wash thee with nitre (defined as soap), and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord God. He also stated at Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil. I pray in Jesus name friend as you read these scriptures that you realize that we are all sinners that daily need Jesus to live and survive in this world. Hallelujah, God has provided an answer to deliver us from sin in one word Jesus.
For Brother Bob's next picture above, Brother Bob wants to share with my friends everywhere a tremendous revelation from Jesus at Psalm 119:176. Right now friend reading this anywhere, look up to heaven and say the words of Psalm 119:176 to the Lord Jesus. Say I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments. I pray in Jesus name anyone reading this forevermore can say along with King David Lord Jesus seek me; I'm a lost sinner that has gone astray. And the good news for all my friends everywhere is that when you say this Jesus will seek for you and save you like the picture above where Jesus sought and saved the lost sheep. Luke 19:10 says For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Take time to meditate on the following scriptures that prove that we are all lost sinful sheep gone astray needing Jesus to seek and save us all daily. Isaiah 53:6 says All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. 1 Peter 2:25 says For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. Psalm 58:3 tells us The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. But friend after you read the above verses, rejoice as you read the words of Jesus at Luke 5:32 that says I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Brother Bob prays in Jesus name, that all my friends everywhere will do the promise of John 10:4 that says And when He putteth forth his own sheep, He goeth before them, and the sheep follow Him; for they know His voice.
OK, as we all look at Brother Bob's last picture for today's bible study, Brother Bob wants all my friends to meditate on Galatians 3:13 that says Christ hath redeemed (defined as Jesus setting us free from all curses stated in the word by paying the ransom price which was the blood of Jesus) us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree. Note in the scripture above law is defined as testament (referring to both the old and new testament curses under the letter) and therefore friend remember when you have Jesus in your life, you are set free from anyone that tries to use the bible (old and new testaments) to condemn someone.
You might say Brother Bob why then is the curse of the law placed in the bible. There is a reason for this stated at Galatians 3:24 that says Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. You see the letter made us realize that we were sinners needing faith in Jesus to set us free. After we come to Jesus by faith we can now rejoice that we are free and no longer under the schoolmaster law. We need to pray for sinners that reject Jesus for without Jesus, these sinners are under the curse of the law. This is why it is so important to be saved and confess Jesus as Lord today believing in your hearts that Jesus died for you and rose again, setting us free from the curse of the law. John 8:36 tells us If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Brother Bob wants to also proclaim to all nations that when you make Jesus Lord of your lives, you all will be free from all generational curses. Let's all take time to study about Jabez who was cursed by his mother when she named him sorrow. Remember even though Jabez's mother cursed her son Jabez and called him sorrow and sorry, Jesus still blessed Jabez and honoured and answered the prayer of Jabez. Remember friend reading this, if people of this world around you curse you for serving Jesus, like Jabez, Jesus will still bless you and grant your prayers. Take time to meditate on the prayer of Jabez at 1 Chronicles 4:9 that the Lord Jesus granted that says And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren; and his mother called his name Jabez saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying Oh that thou wouldst bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldst keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. Lord Jesus, Brother Bob prays in Jesus name all my friends everywhere that read this will rejoice that they are blessed with Jesus and free from any curse from their families or the world.
Brother Bob did a study also the other day of all the four listed prophetesses of the bible and that some of these prophetesses were named with bad names but Jesus still blessed these four prophetesses. The three prophetesses of the old testament were Miriam (defined as rebellion), Deborah (defined as bee), and Huldah (defined as weasel), and the one prophetess of the new testament was Anna (defined as grace). Also note that Ahab called Elijah a troubler of Israel but Jesus still blessed Elijah and allowed Elijah to get caught up alive to glory in the presence of Jesus on a chariot of fire.
