Jesus Is Always Watching To Comfort And Remove Sin
This bible study today is a celebration for Brother Bob and is bible study number 100 for Brother Bob's book for Jesus that currently has blessed over 33000 people in many nations in every part of this earth. Friends everywhere take time to look at the picture above and realize that Jesus as God is always watching us forevermore in any place on this earth. I pray in Jesus name that as you see Jesus above watching everything we do, two things will occur. First, I pray in Jesus name we all will stop sinning for Jesus sees everything we do in the secret places of this earth. If any of us all including Brother Bob are tempted to sin in a secret place where no man is looking, let us not sin for Jesus is always watching us all. Don't feel guilty for any past sins for the blood of Jesus has cleansed you friend from all sin and now today go and sin no more. Second, I pray in Jesus name that my friends everywhere in the many countries will be comforted that when man is nowhere to be found, Jesus is always watching and comforting us with eternal peace.
Take time to meditate on the following scriptures that prove that Jesus is always watching us to comfort and remove our sins. Isaiah 40:22 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. 2 Chronicles 16:9 tells us For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him (notice friend if you daily live holy with Jesus, the Lord Jesus' eyes as they run to a fro over the earth will look at you, rewarding you with everlasting strength for your perfect holiness as a result of your faith in the Lord Jesus.) Proverbs 15:3 tells us The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Luke 12:2 says For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Hebrews 4:13 says Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
Ungodly people in this earth state at Psalm 73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. King David responded and proclaimed that the Lord Jesus knows and sees everything and stated at Psalm 94:7 Yet they say, the Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it; understand, ye brutish among the people, and ye fools. When will ye be wise? He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? He that formed the eye, shall He not see? He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not He correct? He that teacheth man knowledge, shall not He know.
Now Brother Bob again gives you two bible verses Psalm 10:4,11 and Psalm 147:5 that I want my friends to put together like a puzzle as you think on these scriptures proving Jesus sees and knows everything. First Psalm 10:4 says The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God; God is not in all his thoughts. Psalm 10:11 further states He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten; He hideth His face; He will never see it. Jesus responded to this foolish statement at Psalm 147:5 and says Great is our Lord, and of great power; His understanding is infinite. The prophet Jeremiah also answered the above foolish statement of Psalm 10:11 at Jeremiah 23:24 saying Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. And even the prophet Amos proclaimed at Amos 9:2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down. And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them.
OK, now Brother Bob will give you various examples in the bible of people who thought they could hide their sin from God, learning that Jesus sees all sin and watches all our daily actions. For Brother Bob's first bible character that tried to hide his sin pictured above we see Achan whose name is defined as troubler hiding a babylonish garment in the earth under his tent that God saw and brought to light. Thomas Watson in 1663 stated All our actions though never so subtily contrived and secretly conveyed are visible to the eye of an all knowing omniscient Lord Jesus. The story about Achan is found at Joshua 7:21 where Achan said to Joshua, When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and 200 shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of 50 shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them, and behold they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. So Joshua sent messengers and they ran unto the tent, and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the Lord.
The Lord Jesus revealed all the hidden sin of Achan, and Achan was like the rich fool of the new testament stated at Luke 12:16 who lost his life for his greed of storing earthly possessions, failing to bless the poor. Friends everywhere as you think how Achan lost his life for being selfish and not sharing his wealth with the poor, let us all determine to use our blessings on this earth to relieve the oppressed poor, fatherless orphans, as we plead for and assist the troubled widows of this earth. Take time to read the beautiful words penned by Joseph Alleine in 1653 that says Instead of saying I would be happy if I rolled in wealth, swimmed in pleasure, had my debts paid, and I and mine were provided for, Lord Jesus let all saints say; Even if I'm poor and despised in this world for serving Jesus, it's a blessing that all my sins and corruptions are removed and subdued and I'd rather be gracious, than great. I'd rather be the holy with Jesus than the most learned, the most famous, and the most prosperous man on this earth.
Friends everywhere take time to study the following scriptures that further prove that Jesus sees and knows everything about our lives. Psalm 139:4 proves that Jesus hears every whisper we say stating For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. Lord Jesus I pray that all who read this will realize that Jesus knows all the words we speak and help us all to only speak blessings daily to all people we encounter. Also note that the Lord Jesus knows each subtle thought we think. Now read and meditate on this next awesome quote from Thomas Watson in the 1600's that said "Thoughts speak as loud in God's ears as words do in ours." The bible scripture that supports Thomas Watson's quote is Isaiah 66:18 that says For I know their works and their thoughts, it shall come that I will gather all nations and tongues,and they shall come, and see my glory.
Another bible character who tried to hide her sin pictured above is Jeroboam's wife who tried to disguise herself before the prophet Ahijah who recognized her immediately and rebuked her for her sin. Friend reading this anywhere learn from these examples and do not hide any sins for Jesus and his prophets see and know everything. Proverbs 28:13 tells us He that covereth his sins shall not prosper; but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. Friend reading this anywhere if you have sinned, right now do Proverbs 28:13 and receive mercy by confessing your sin to the Lord Jesus and then forsake the sin meaning go and sin no more.
The scripture about the above picture of Jeroboam's wife is at 1 Kings 14:6 and says And it was so, when Ahijah heard the sound of her feet, as she came in at the door, that he said, Come in, thou wife of Jeroboam, why feignest thou thyself to be another? for I am sent to thee with heavy tidings. Thomas Watson in 1659 referred to Jeroboam's wife as a hypocrite (defined as an actor) who prevaricated (defined as speaking or acting falsely or evasively) with God, but God through the prophet Ahijah unmasked Jeroboam's wife. All Brother Bob has to say in response to anyone who hides their sins from God is to read Ecclesiastes 12:14 that says For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. Since Jesus knows and sees everything, let us all look daily to the Lord Jesus crucified with our hearts by faith, allowing Jesus to bring forth good works in every area of our lives.
OK, Jesus has even more scriptures proving that the Lord Jesus knows and sees everything in our lives listed below. It is so comforting to know that Jesus hears all our sighs, groanings, and sorrows because Psalm 38:9 says Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. Like the children of Israel, the Lord Jesus sees and will deliver his saints from all their sorrows for Exodus 3:7 says And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows. Friend, Jesus is so good that He sees all our wanderings from persecutions on this earth for serving Jesus and puts our tears in His bottle for Psalm 56:8 says Thou tellest my wanderings, put thou my tears into thy bottle; are they not in thy book. Be encouraged saints and think on what King Solomon said at Ecclesiastes 5:8 that reads If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter; for He that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.
For Brother Bob's last picture for his bible study today, we see Joseph telling the chief butler and baker their dreams in prison. Joseph correctly told the chief butler that he would be restored to his position at the court of Pharoah. Joseph requested the chief butler to remember his kindness and request his release from prison to the Pharoah. Unfortunately, the chief butler forgot Joseph for two years, allowing Joseph to suffer in prison for two years. But, this is not so with the Lord Jesus. Though our Lord Jesus is exalted to such a high glory in heaven, Jesus is not unmindful of his saints on this earth.
Be encouraged friends and read the wonderful scriptures below that prove that Jesus never forgets his saints, daily watching and protecting them. Hebrews 4:15 says For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Note this is a double negative and really says we have a high priest named Jesus who cares and is touched with the feeling of our infirmities, healing all our problems. Unlike the chief butler pictured above, the Lord Jesus will remember his saints and reward them for all their kind deeds on this earth as they feared the Lord Jesus. The prophet Malachi promised a sure reward from Jesus for our kind deeds in serving Jesus and stated at Malachi 3:16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another, and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His name.
