Glimpses Of A Perfect Kingdom
Today's bible study was inspired after Brother Bob was blessed by a book written by Lewis Bayly in the late 1500's called The Practice Of Piety. Brother Bob will now write out the many scriptures of the eternal joy and peace that awaits all saints soon in the everlasting kingdom. Take time to look at the anointed picture above and realize that it is so much better to just be a doorkeeper in the house of my God for one day than to dwell a thousand days in a wicked extravagent, rich palace on this earth. Psalm 84:10 says For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. Any place in the kingdom promised to all believers in Jesus as God who are poor on this earth, even a lowly doorkeeper holding the door to the kingdom, would be so much better than living in a palace with kings and princes on this earth. Saint reading this anywhere, keep serving Jesus no matter where you live on this earth through any persecutions or troubles around you, for soon your faithful service will be rewarded and you will receive everlasting joy with Jesus in the kingdom.
Take time to meditate on King David's proclamation of how wonderful and peaceful the kingdom will be as the saints' reward for faithfully serving Jesus on this earth. King David rejoiced and said at Psalm 36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house, and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light shall we see light. King David also stated that in the kingdom with Jesus will be pleasures for evermore and just being in the presence of Jesus will be fulness of joy. Psalm 16:11 says Thou wilt shew me the path of life; in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand(with Jesus at the right hand of God) there are pleasures for evermore.
Friend reading this anywhere, if you have been persecuted on this earth for serving Jesus and forgotten by the world and family, meditate and think on the following scriptures that promise a blessed soon eternal joy from our Lord Jesus for your faithful service on this earth for the Lord Jesus. Jesus said at John 16:22 And ye now therefore have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. Psalm 27:10 tells us When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. Psalm 126:5 says They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Isaiah 35:10 says And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Friends in the many nations, Brother Bob has placed the above picture on this bible study to further show the peace of Jesus in the kingdom where the beautiful flowers will blossom and the anointed songs of turtledoves and birds will be eternally heard by the saints. Take time to praise Jesus as you read Song of Solomon 2:8 describing the soon coming peaceful kingdom where we all will live that says The voice of my beloved! behold, He cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. My beloved is like a roe or a young hart (deer), behold, He standeth behind our wall, He looketh forth at the windows, shewing Himself through the lattice. My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love my fair one, and come away.(Right now praise Jesus for raising you up friend and soon taking you to the eternal peaceful kingdom). For lo, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines, with the tender grape, give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Now Brother Bob wants all my friends to put the following bible verses together like a puzzle to receive a blessed revelation today from Jesus. First as you all read Ephesians 1:19 rejoice and know that the Lord Jesus prayed that you would share with Him the blessings listed at Ephesians 1:19 that says And what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. And hath put all things under His feet and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church.
Friend you will share the blessings listed by Ephesians 1:19 with Jesus(the saints will be far above any sickness, worry, fear, or trouble that will be under their feet never to be remembered forever) for Jesus prayed at John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me; for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. Friends you can bank on the prayer above of Jesus at John 17:24(being with Jesus forevermore in peace in the kingdom) for Jesus is righteousness listed at 1 Corinthians 1:30 and James 5:16 says The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man (Jesus) availeth much(defined as will happen).
And according to the prophet Isaiah any bad memories of any troubles on this earth will be forgotten forevermore in the kingdom for Isaiah 65:17 says For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. Revelation 21:4 also says And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; (note)for the former things are passed away.
Now friends as you look at the beautiful picture of an eagle above, take time to praise Jesus for removing all sickness, pains, and troubles forevermore in the kingdom as you say Isaiah 40:31 which reads But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Friend reading this anywhere, Brother Bob prays in Jesus name that you will mount up with wings as eagles far above your troubles as you shout praises in the heights with Jesus forevermore in the kingdom. The apostle Paul proclaimed at 1 Corinthians 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead, it is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonour, it is raised in glory, it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
Now I want all my friends in the nations to praise Jesus as you read the following bible verses that prove that there will be no more sickness, pain, or sorrow in the kingdom where we all soon will be with Jesus. Lewis Bayly said in the kingdom Jacob shall not limp, nor Isaac be blind, nor Leah bleary eyed, nor Mephibosheth lame for the prophet Isaiah proclaimed at Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped; Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert. Since we all as saints are called members of the tribes of Israel, rejoice and receive the promise of Psalm 105:37 that says He brought them forth also with silver and gold; and there was not one feeble person among their tribes. Truly, we can all say with King David at Psalm 87:3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God, Selah.
Finally, Brother Bob gives you all another anointed picture which you can left click to truly see that soon in the kingdom the saints will be blessed and shine as the brightness of the firmament and as the stars for ever and ever stated by the prophet Daniel. Daniel 12:2 states And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. The apostle Paul stated that the glorious kingdom was beyond any description at 1 Corinthians 2:9 that says But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. The Lord Jesus comforted us all and said at John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
For Brother Bob's final thought for today's bible study, take time to sing the song that all the saints will sing with King David in the glorious kingdom praising Jesus for His goodness. Psalm 47:5 records this song and let's sing God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing ye praise with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen; God sitteth upon the throne of His holiness. The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham; for the shields of the earth belong unto God; He is greatly exalted.
