For today's bible study, as you look at the picture above proclaiming Jesus as Lord, let's learn the test to know if someone is of God or not of God. The test is stated at 1 John 4 and says when a person confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh that person is of God. But what does it mean to say that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh? To answer this question we must place the following two bible scriptures together which are 1 Timothy 3:16 and 1 John 4:2-3.
1 Timothy 3:16 says And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. This verse says Jesus is God manifest in the flesh.Therefore the test whether a person is of God is that they will confess that Jesus Christ is God come in the flesh. If you read another translated bible that is not a KJV bible, 1 Timothy 3:16 will say He (not God) was manifest in the flesh denying that Jesus is God. Brother Bob says only read the KJV version of the bible and throw away the offensive translated bible that denies the diety of Jesus as God.
OK, now take time to meditate on 1 John 4:2-3 that says Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God, because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God; Every Spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God; And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God; and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it shall come; and even now already is it in the world. Friend reading this anywhere remember you must confess Jesus as Lord to be saved and when a religion says Jesus is just a teacher or great man of God, denying Jesus as God, that religion is not of God and is the spirit of antichrist. The current religions that deny Jesus as God are jehovah's witnesses, muslims, and jews. As christians, we must love these people with the love of Jesus, but speak out against their false religious doctrines.
In my experience as an end time prophet to the nations, Brother Bob can tell you that the devil fights the most by trying to make people deny Jesus as God. You might ask why does the devil not want people to confess Jesus as God. The reason is because the devil knows that once a person confesses Jesus as God, that person will be saved and free of the devil. Romans 10:9 says That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, (notice the scripture says Lord Jesus, not teacher or prophet Jesus), and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Right now to anyone reading this get saved and say Jesus is Lord and believe Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again.
For the next blessed revelation from Jesus, as you look at the anointed picture above, remember Jesus is our only way to God as our mediator. Catholics believe they can go to a priest to confess their sins and pray to Mary for forgiveness. Again, we must show the love of Jesus to catholics but speak out against their false teachings that oppose the KJV bible. 1 Timothy 2:5 says For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (not a catholic priest or Mary). Friend, if you need forgiveness of any sin in your life, go to the one mediator between God and men, who is Jesus, and not Mary, a priest, a psychiatrist, or any other person for forgiveness. Only the Lord Jesus will wash away your sins forevermore for 1 John 1:7 says 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.
Remember friend reading this that you are accepted with God because you are in the beloved Jesus and not because of your good works. Compare the following two blessed bible scriptures proving that only with the Lord Jesus will you be accepted by God the Father. Ephesians 1:6 says To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved (the beloved is Jesus and we are accepted with God through Jesus and not our works). The scripture where the Father proclaimed Jesus as the beloved is Matthew 3:17 that says And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
You see, not our works , but the righteousness of Jesus as we believe in Jesus makes us accepted by the Father. 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 4:5 says But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Titus 3:5 says Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. One is saved by the mercy of Jesus and not by their good works or righteousness. 1 Corinthians 13:3 tells us And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (love or Jesus), it profiteth me nothing.
You might say as you look at the two pictures above, Brother Bob why did you place pictures above of Jesus turning the water into wine with a baby enjoying milk from her bottle. The answer is to prove that Jesus is affordable where the wine and milk in heaven will be free of charge. Friend reading this anywhere, know that Jesus is affordable and all you have to do is receive the free gift of Jesus without any good works. Ephesians 2:8 says For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast. Isaiah 55:1 says Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price; Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
You might say friend, Brother Bob how could Jesus be kind to such a sinful person like myself. Let me state that our only true friend is Jesus who will always be kind and bless us as we believe He is God and died for us on the cross and rose again. Friends, people might forget us, but Jesus will always be kind, remember, and bless His saints with peace forevermore. Jesus said at Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee. Psalm 138:6 says Though the Lord be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly; but the proud He knoweth afar off. Isaiah 49:15 says Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
For Brother Bob's last picture today, I present to you a picture of the broidered many colored coat that Joseph received from his father Jacob. When we get to the kingdom to live forevermore with Jesus, Jesus will give us all a broidered many colored coat with many beautiful garments and ornaments. Rejoice as you read the prophet Ezekial's vision of the glorious gifts Jesus will give his saints in the kingdom. Ezekial 16:10 tells us I clothed thee also with broidered work (defined as a many colored coat), and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain (defined as a necklace) on thy neck. And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver, and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey; and oil; and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty; for it was perfect through my comeliness (defined as the splendor, glory, honour, and majesty of Jesus), which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord God.
In the new testament, the apostle John like the prophet Ezekial also had a blessed vision of the glorious wedding garments that the bridegroom Jesus will give his bride or the saints in the kingdom. Rejoice as you read Revelation 19:7 that says Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him; for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready; And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white; for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And He saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
