Dinah Should Have Stayed At Home


     Today's message is about a woman named Dinah who was the only sister to the twelves sons of Jacob. Here's a question to ask your friends. Ask them if a man in the bible had 12 sons and each of the sons had a sister how many children would be in the family? Most people would say 24, but the correct answer is 13 because all the 12 sons of Jacob had the same sister named Dinah. OK now to my message today, and I encourage all young women to read this message and avoid Dinah's mistake pictured above of going out to see the glitter, fashion, and fading splendour of this evil world. James 4:4 warns us all that the friendship of the world is enmity with God: whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

     The story about the picture above can be found at Genesis 34:1 and says And Dinah, the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem, the son of Hamor, the Hivite, prince of the country saw her, he took her, and defiled her. And his soul clave unto Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.

     Genesis 34:4 goes on to say And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this damsel to wife. And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter; now his sons were with his cattle in the field, and Jacob held his peace until they were come. And Hamor, the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him. And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it; and the men were grieved and they were very wroth because he had wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter, which thing ought not to be done.

     First, notice that the reason trouble occurred in the above story was because a young innocent girl named Dinah decided to leave home and go see the evil world of Shechem. When Dinah arrived at Shechem, she met a handsome prince named Shechem and was fascinated with the fashions and glamour of Shechem. But, as Dinah became captivated by the world of Shechem and blind to reality, she failed to see the dangers around her and was raped and defiled by prince Shechem.

     Notice in the above story that after Shechem raped Dinah, Shechem spake kindly to Dinah. Dinah decided to shack up and live with Shechem because Shechem spake kindly to her. Like Dinah, many young girls today will live with a man before marriage and say it's OK because this man treats me good and speaks kind words to me. Brother Bob says it does not matter how good or kind a man is that lives with a woman before marriage, It is still wicked as hell. Hebrews 13:4 tells us Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled; but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. I pray in Jesus name that young girls who read this will honour God's word and not live with a man until they are married by a minister of God to receive the blessings of Jesus.

     Notice also in the above story at Genesis 34:7 that it states that Shechem's sin of fornication (sex with Dinah outside of marriage) ought not to be done.1 Thessalonians 4:3 also states that For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication. Today, the world is wrong when it says marriage occurs when a man and woman shack up and live together. The world is also wrong when marriage is legalized between two men and two women. But notice, the world today is not promoting the blessed marriage of a man and a woman, which is the correct biblical definition of a marriage. Friends can't you see that today, the main thing the devil is fighting is the blessed union of marriage between a man and woman. Jesus wanted a man and a woman to be married by a minister of God, be frutiful and multiply, and have children raised in the goodness of Jesus.

     When Dinah met prince Shechem, she was probably taken to live in a castle and palace like the ones pictured above. Dinah was a naive innocent virgin girl who got involved with glamour and sinned as she was swept away by prince Shechem. Instead of Jesus, Dinah wanted a good looking man, with a fine robe, a horse, and a chariot, wanting one night of splendour in a palace with the king's son. Dinah was flattered that a prince would care about her, a poor little Jewish girl that traveled in a tent. It was fascinating to Dinah that Shechem had a castle, a palace, and lived in a city with walls and gates, and cared about her. Even though Dinah was enjoying the castle, palace, and the prince, she did not realize the consequences of her sin until it was too late after Shechem raped and defiled her. Dinah left home as a virgin, but because Dinah sinned by loving the world, she returned defiled as she left the evil world of Shechem.

     How many young girls today like Dinah come home crying to their parents saying I wish I never went out to this wicked world. I wish I never met this evil man. He's no good. But the damage is done. Brother Bob says to all young girls reading this, stay home, just stay home, marry out, don't go out, marry out. Stay with mom and dad until it's time to hitch up. Young girls should marry out and not run away from home. So many young kids today get away from mom and dad and they are too proud to say I'm sorry. The bible says at Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

     Notice, because one girl, Dinah sinned and walked around the block and was introduced to something she could not handle, she ruined her family's name, she ruined the nation of Israel, and caused the massacre of thousands of innocent people, where a whole city was destroyed. The bible says that after Dinah was raped by Shechem, her brothers killed prince Shechem, his father Hamor, and all the male Hivites in the city of Shechem. All because one innocent girl named Dinah wandered from home. Like Dinah, today when young girls wander from home and get pregnant in this wicked world, they cause the massacre of many innocent people who are millions of babies that become aborted and lose their lives.  

     Like Dinah, today many young girls want to be sightseers and streetwalkers, seeing what's going on around the corner. These young girls get tired of home and leave home to see the fast pace life of sin city. Many turn from a good home and security to experience a change. It's amazing to Brother Bob that most women will scream at a mouse, but sit in a car with a wolf. These young girls get tired of school, church every sunday, bible reading every night, praying all the time and want to be like the other kids and have fun. No good christian mother or father wants their daughter wandering the streets doing wicked sins.

     These young kids want to see something different and they don't last but one night sometimes. These young kids get around sin, and they don't even hardly have a chance. The world swallows them up so fast that the young girls have to sell themselves to live and no longer enjoy life, making kids not want to live anymore. To all young kids that read this, remember that life is wonderful if you live for Jesus. But, if kids get away from security, the church, and away from their parents and people that love them and go to the evil world, this evil world will drag them straight to hell and laugh at them on the way.

     OK, young girls reading this if you want to have a blessed happy life, take time to read and do what is stated in the above picture. Titus 2:4 tells young girls that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet (defined as temperate, denying your flesh and letting Jesus shine in your life), chaste (defined as pure and sacred by looking daily to Jesus Christ crucified with your heart), keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

     Notice as you read Titus 2:4, if young girls keep home, be good wives and mothers that Jesus wants them to be, these young girls won't find themselves out on the streets of an evil world in trouble, defiled, ruined, lost, brokenhearted, ashamed, and with disease. But, Brother Bob says to all young girls who have made mistakes in the past, the blood of Jesus can wash away all your troubles, shame, and past wrongs. With Jesus there is always hope and today with Jesus you can start a new life where your past wrongs will no longer be mentioned. I claim in Jesus name for all the young girls that read this that they will become blessed mothers, keepers of homes who care for their husbands and children, speaking to their family about the Lord Jesus, who no longer walk idly in the streets of this evil world.



     You might say what is the meaning of the two pictures above of Paul hearing a Macedonian man saying come over into Macedonia and help us and Lot pitching his tent toward Sodom. Jesus told Brother Bob to link the two pictures together and tell christians that they can not hear the macedonian call and serve Jesus with their tents pitched toward the wicked world of Sodom or Shechem. As Lot pitched his tent toward wicked Sodom, Jacob also pitched his tent toward wicked Shechem, causing his daughter Dinah to visit Shechem and become defiled. Genesis 33:18 says And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is  in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padanaram; and pitched his tent before the city.

     Parents, learn a lesson from the two pictures above and remember you can not raise your children for Jesus when you pitch your tent near the evil world of Sodom or Shechem. Your family will not be able to hear the macedonian call for help and be able to serve Jesus when you expose your family to the wicked world. The world will blind and deafen your family to the macedonian call. 2 Corinthians 4:4 warns us the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

      The apostle Paul was able to hear the macedonian man's call for help because Paul denied the world. Acts 16:9 says And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

     Parents, remember if you pitch your tent toward the evil world of Shechem, you will expose your innocent daughters to rapists, infidels, and the devils of this evil world that can ruin innocent children. I pray for all parents reading this bible study in Jesus name that they will be able to keep their kids at home away from the evils of this world.

     Brother Bob constantly tries to tell young kids to be careful of the company that they keep. 1 Corinthians 15:33 tells us Be not deceived; evil communications corrupt good manners. Young kids trying to live for Jesus, be careful when you get into cars of your friends that you do not know. Stay away from drugs, alcohol, and guns and live for Jesus. Brother Bob has known several young kids that had to go to jail for being in a car where marijuana was smoked as a policeman arrested all the kids in the car. Proverbs 13:20 warns us He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.


     To close out today's bible study, the above pictures of Tamar and the prodigal son remind Brother Bob of Dinah as they also experienced trouble from the world. Tamar, like Dinah, did not stay at home but innocently went to the house of her brother Amnon to bake him cakes. As a result, another innocent young girl Tamar was raped by her brother Amnon and then the other brother Absalom took revenge for Tamar and killed Amnon. You can read about this story at 2 Samuel 13.

     Also, the prodigal son pictured above, like Dinah became curious about the far country and left home to see the evil world. Like Dinah, the prodigal son was enticed by the glitter and glamour of the far country and learned that the world offered nothing but trouble and problems. The prodigal son returned to his father and learned that being with Jesus was much better than anything this world had to offer.

     For my final thought today I tell all my friends everywhere that the only answer to all our troubles can be stated in one word: Jesus. The world might tell you that there are answers outside of Jesus, but only Jesus can save us all. Currently many cars display signs of 7 symbols representing the 7 most important religions of the world that are muslim, jew, christian, hindu, buddhist, new age, and yoga and underneath these listed religions it says God loves everybody. This is true, but only Jesus can save us all.

     Think about this as I close. One time a muslim told me I hate you because you are a christian. I responded and told the muslim, I love you because I'm a christian. Truly, when we are persecuted, people persecute Jesus and not us. Remember, 1 Peter 4:14 says If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you; on their part He is evil spoken of, (the world speaks evil about the Jesus in us) but on your part He is glorified (but as the world speaks evil about Jesus, christians keep glorifying Jesus).

     As always, I've enjoyed writing this bible study today and pray it gives peace to all my friends everywhere. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz8tlm@yahoo.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Parables, Parables, Parables


     For today's bible study, Brother Bob has many parables to share with my friends that I pray in Jesus name will draw us closer to Jesus. I've noticed that as we daily live for Jesus, we all become more and more like Jesus. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. Jesus spoke stories in parables, and as we all live daily with Jesus, we also will speak stories in parables to learn more about our Lord Jesus. Puzzles and riddles about the bible are blessed because they make you think about the word of God, and Psalm 1 says if we meditate on the Word of God day and night, whatsoever we do will prosper. Like Jesus, each parable Brother Bob shares today will be followed by an answer to bless all my friends everywhere with great peace.

     For our first parable today, Brother Bob shares the picture above of the three wise men bringing three gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrhh to the baby Lord Jesus. Matthew 2:11 says And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped Him; and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

     These three gifts were presented to our Lord Jesus recognizing His three titles as king, priest, and prophet. Jesus appeared on the earth as a prophet, appeared in heaven as a priest, and is coming back again to rule as a king. Jesus is a prophet, priest, and king. Jesus is a better king than David, a better priest than Aaron after the order of Melchisedec, and a better prophet than Moses.

     Gold represented the kingship of Jesus proclaiming that Jesus is king forevermore. Frankincense represented the priesthood of Jesus that is forever after the order of Melchisedec. Frankincense was the incense burned by priests at religious ceremonies. Finally, myrrh represented Jesus as a prophet, prophesying that Jesus was born to die on the cross. Myrrh is the oil that is used to anoint a dead body before burial. After Jesus died on the cross, Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathaea used myrrh to prepare Jesus' body for burial.

     To close out our first parable today, Brother Bob gives you three scriptures that prove that our Lord Jesus was a prophet, priest, and king. Deuteronomy 18:15 proclaims Jesus as a prophet and says The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet from the midst of thee of thy brethren, like unto me, unto Him ye shall hearken. Psalm 110:4 proclaims Jesus as a priest and says The Lord hath sworn and will not repent; Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. Finally, Revelation 11:15 proclaims Jesus as a king and says And the seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever.

     For our second parable today as you look at the above picture of a wicked son getting saved for Jesus before his father dies, realize the importance of saving souls and going into all the world to win souls to Jesus. Proverbs 11:30 says The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. Jesus said at Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel (the message of Jesus Christ as God crucified and raised from the dead) to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

     I pray in Jesus name the following blessed true story about the above picture blesses you all and share it everywhere to bless others. One time a man had seven sons. And on his death bed, he called each one by his bedside. He said to the first son, goodnight son, I'll see you in the morning. Then the next son came by the bedside and the father said again goodnight son, I'll see you in the morning. The father also gave these sons good advice.

     But his last son was a real rebel, a wild and crazy kid. And when this last son got by the bed of his father, his father took him by the hand and said bye son. And this last rebellious son began to cry and  said, papa, papa, you told everyone else, goodnight son, I'll see you in the morning; You told me goodbye, what's wrong papa. The father said, son, they're all saved, I'll see them in the morning, but you're not saved, I'll never see you again. So for you it's goodbye son. After hearing this, the rebellious son dropped on his knees and begged God to save him and Jesus gloriously saved that rebellious child. Then the last words out of the father's mouth before he died were goodnight son, I'll see you in the morning.

     For our third parable today, take a look at the picture above of 204 unopened letters and meditate on Exodus 20:12 that says Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. Friends everywhere, if you have parents living, take time to regularly call them and tell them you love them. Currently, Brother Bob's parents don't believe in the Lord Jesus and have told Brother Bob to deny Jesus, which Brother Bob will never ever do.

     Ephesians 6:1 says children obey your parents in the Lord. Notice the bible says obey your parents in the Lord (in the Lord means if your parents tell you to deny Jesus and the word do not obey this). My mother forbid me to read the bible while in her house as a child, and Brother Bob disobeyed her wish and went immediately to Kmart to buy a paperback KJV bible and kept reading that bible daily. But, Brother Bob still respects his parents today and regularly calls them and tells them he loves them and prays regularly that they both will get saved and acknowledge Jesus as God.

     OK, as you look at the picture above of 204 unopened letters, take time to read this story about how a rebellious daughter treated her mother. If you are a child reading this story, I pray in Jesus name you can see how cruel it is for a child to disrespect his parents which God disapproves of.

     Here's the true story: A woman and her daughter got into an argument. The rebellious daughter said to her mother, I'm leaving home. The daughter left. Years passed. 204 weeks went by. Over 4 years. The mother wrote her daughter a letter every week for 204 weeks and never got an answer. One day a package came. It was from her daughter. The mother was so happy to get a package from her daughter. She rips it open and finds 204 unopened letters. The rebellious daughter wanted to show her mother how stubborn and independent she was, saying I don't need you mother, I don't need you father, I can make it on my own. Children everywhere reading this, I pray in Jesus name you can love and respect your parents, unlike this rebellious daughter, so that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

THE SIX QUESTIONS FROM PSALM 34
WHO WHAT WHOM WHEN HOW AND WHY

     For our fourth parable today let's look at the six questions from Psalm 34 that are who, what, whom, when, how, and why. As we read Psalm 34:1, it says (who), I (what), will bless (whom), the Lord (when) at all times, his praise shall continually (how), be in my mouth. Finally, (why) because we all love the Lord Jesus. Thank you Lord Jesus that your praises are in our mouths because Psalm 40:3 says And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

     I claim friend reading this anywhere in Jesus name as you praise and bless Jesus as God, your enemies will flee from you. Proverbs 28:1 says The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion. According to this blessed promise, I ain't chasing the devil, but he runs away anyhow. Psalm 68:1 says Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered; let them also that hate Him flee before Him. Lord Jesus as we all praise you, send away our enemies fleeing. Get them out of our faces, get them off our backs. Hallelujah, if we can all just shout the victory, it doesn't matter where the enemy is at.


     OK, for my fifth parable today, Brother Bob gives you a true story about how a 70 year old women was saved from a burgler like the one pictured above who ran out of the window and failed to steal anything from her home. Feel free to share this blessed story everywhere to show people that there is safety and power in the name of Jesus. The true story was a little 70 year old woman was in her house one day when she heard a thief downstairs. The thief was putting all her personal items in bags. When the woman saw the thief, she hollered get out in the name of Jesus. The thief immediately left the bags and ran away out the window down the alley. Then two weeks later the woman heard a knock on the door, and it was the thief.

     The thief said after she said the name Jesus, he got saved and went to church. The thief told the lady if she did not say Jesus, he would have killed her. If that little 70 year old woman hollered help instead of Jesus, she would have died. Friend when most people are in trouble, they holler the wrong word help. Friends, learn a lesson from this story, and when trouble comes remember that instead of hollering what the world hollers (help), holler (Jesus) and be saved from all troubles and harm. Jesus said in Mark 16:17 In my name (Jesus) shall they cast out devils (and be saved from the devil who comes to kill, steal, and destroy). Friends, there is safety in the name of Jesus. Thank you Lord Jesus for safety in your name and Proverbs 18:10 that says The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. 


     OK, for my sixth and seventh parables today, we see pictured above Adam and Eve leaving the garden of Eden and a box of morton salt. Let's start with the picture of Adam and Eve and ask a question that we hear a lot from people in this world when they say what would the world be like if Adam didn't sin? The answer is the same troubled world it has always been because you, I, and all of us, except Jesus, would've sinned. Romans 3:23 says For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Adam could not save this world because only the Lord Jesus can cure this troubled world. This is proven by John 14:6 where Jesus said I am the way, the truth, and the life. 

     Now let's move on to the next picture of the box of morton salt and feel free to share this question with your friends. Ask them what woman in the bible is not named, died, was never buried, and her graveclothes can be found in any grocery store anywhere? If after you say this the person needs another hint tell them she's the only woman Jesus said to remember. The answer is Lot's wife. Jesus said remember Lot's wife and the graveclothes of Lot's wife (a pillar of salt) can be found in any grocery store anywhere. While I'm at it, here's some more biblical questions for all my friends. What was Boaz called before he got married. Answer: Ruthless. What was Isaiah's horse called. Answer: Isme because Isaiah said Whoa Isme. What is the meanest animal in the bible. Answer: The wicked flea.

     Alright, while I'm at it, I might as well share another story. A man had a horse that he taught to run when a person said hallelujah and to stop when a person said amen. This man let his friend ride his horse telling him he needs to say hallelujah and amen to get the horse to run and stop. The friend got on the horse and shouted hallelujah and as the horse was running toward a steep cliff, the friend forgot that he had to say amen to stop the horse and kept saying whoa, whoa, but right before the horse reached the cliff, the friend remembered to say amen, and the horse stopped right at the edge of the cliff. The friend was so happy that the horse stopped that he shouted hallelujah.

     OK, to end up this bible study of many parables, think about how most people say when I quit sinning, I'll get right with God. This is backwards. People should first get right with Jesus and then they will automatically quit sinning. A praying man will quit sinning, but a sinning man will quit praying.

      One final thought. Many people (Jehovah's false witnesses and muslims) say I'm not against God, even though I believe Jesus is just a great teacher and prophet and not God. Note: Show the love of Jesus to muslims and jehovah witnesses, but cry out against their false doctrines. Brother Bob proclaims to all nations that Jesus is much more than just a great teacher and prophet because Jesus is God. Jesus said at Matthew 12:30 He that is not with me is against me. In other words if we are with Jesus believing Jesus is God, we are not against God who is Jesus. Just confess Jesus as God friend right now and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you and rose again, and then you can be saved and say I am not against God.

     I pray in Jesus name these many parables bless my many friends everywhere and lift up our Lord Jesus. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz8tlm@yahoo.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Till we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus Christ, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Jesus Is The Fit Man, Daysman, And Kinsman Redeemer



     For today's bible study, we see a fit man pictured above sending a scapegoat carrying all the sins of the children of God into an uninhabited wilderness never to return again. The fit man would then return to the camp of Israel without the goat as the people shouted praise because their sins were gone forevermore. The people in the camp would rejoice and shout fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat. The people celebrated because the goat and the peoples' sins were gone forevermore

     Friend, Jesus is the fit man that bore our sins on the cross, rose again, and will return to his saints a second time without sin unto salvation. Hebrews 9:28 says So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation The fit man Jesus took His own blood to take away our sins forevermore and will soon take His saints to the kingdom where their sins will never be remembered. 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.

     The story about the fit man and the scapegoat pictured above can be found at Leviticus 16:7 and says And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats, one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

     Leviticus 16:20 goes on to say And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat. And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness. And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited, and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. Leviticus 16:26 then says And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.

     Now friend take time to read my good friend Sonny Mull's description of how the fit man took away our sins forevermore. The fit man would take the scapegoat into the wilderness, a place not inhabited, and where the goat could never return. Then the fit man left the scapegoat and came back to the camp by himself. A watchman on a mountaintop would hollar to another watchman fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat. Then, the second watchman would hollar to another watchman on a mountaintop, fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat. Many watchmen would hollar from one mountain to another mountain fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat till it got back to the camp. And when the people in the camp heard fit man's comin' and he ain't got the goat, the people of the camp shouted and rejoiced for seven days.

     The people of the camp shouted praises for seven days because the goat carried away their sins into the wilderness never to be heard of, never to return, never to be brought back, as far as the east is from the west, where their sins were gone forever. Friend, Jesus is the fit man that bore our sins in His own body, and Jesus is coming back a second time for those who look for Him without sin unto salvation. Friend, Jesus is comin' again and He ain't got the goat, He ain't got our sins, and Jesus has taken away our sins forevermore to an uninhabited place where the goat can never bring them back to the saints' camp in the new Jerusalem.

     For out next picture we see the Lord Jesus as our daysman mediator between God and man. The word daysman only appears once in the bible at Job 9:33 where Job asked a question saying Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both. The apostle Paul answered Job's question and proclaimed that Jesus was our daysman mediator that reconciled man to God and stated at 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

     A daysman used to put his hand on one man and another man's head and then made a decision which one of them was right. The word of the daysman stood forevermore like a judge's decision as the final word for a dispute. Friend, Jesus is our daysman that holds onto us and onto God and brings us together to the Father as He washes away all our sins by His own blood. Everyone praise Jesus for saying to the Father as our daysman that my word is final, and my friends are cleansed from all sin by my blood and can enter and live forevermore in peace in the glorious kingdom.

GRACE
God's Redemption At Christ's Expense
     Pictured above we see Boaz as the kinsman redeemer for Ruth. Boaz was the bridegroom that redeemed, married, and bought the Moabite Ruth. Boaz represented Jesus and Ruth represented the church. Jesus is the bridegroom kinsman redeemer of the church, who redeemed, married, and bought the church with His own blood. 1 Peter 1:18 says Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.

     You might say Brother Bob why does the word grace appear under the picture above. OK, here's the answer. Say right now thank you Jesus because grace is God's redemption at Christ's expense. Another word that shows the mercy of Jesus as our kinsman redeemer is propitiation. Jesus was our propitiation or sacrifice on the cross for all our sins. To remember the meaning of the word propitiation say pro pit, and then say thank you Jesus for providing pity for guilty sinners like myself. Romans 3:25 says Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins (defined as removing the bondage of sin forevermore), that are past, through the forbearance of God.

     Friends, you might say why is Brother Bob placing a picture above of a little boy building a toy boat. OK, I pray in Jesus name that my friends everywhere take time to read the following story about the little boy above and his toy boat and learn the blessed truth of how Jesus redeemed sinners by His own blood. I pray in Jesus name that this little story gives peace and healing to all my friends who forevermore read this bible study.

     A little boy and his daddy built a toy boat, glued it together, placing sails on the toy boat, and the toy boat was very precious to the little boy and his father. One day they both took the toy boat to a lake to sail it out on the beautiful lake. Unfortunately, the wind got a hold of the little boat and took it out into deep water and as the boat got into the swift water, it disappeared down the river. The little boy was so sad when he lost his little boat.

     But, the next week, as the little boy was walking through the city, he looked into a pawn shop window and saw his little toy boat. He went inside the pawn shop, picked up his boat, and started to walk out. The owner of the pawn shop said Whoa son, where are you going? The little boy told the pawn shop owner, This is my boat. The pawn shop owner replied, No it's not. I paid a little boy $1 for that boat. You'll have to redeem and buy the boat before you can own it again. It's not yours, it's mine.

     The little boy replied and said it's my boat, I glued it together and built the boat myself. Again, the pawn shop owner said  No son, it ain't, I got a receipt right here proving that the boat is mine. After this, the little boy ran home to his daddy and brought his daddy to the pawn shop to buy the boat back. As the little boy walked out of the pawn shop with his boat, the little boy said you're mine twice now, once because I bought you, and once because I built you.

     Friends reading this anywhere, like the little boy who built and redeemed his boat, Jesus made us and still had to redeem and buy us back, and it cost God the blood of His only begotten Son Jesus to redeem and save our souls. We should all daily thank the Lord Jesus for redeeming us all from sin with his own blood that He shed at the cross, freeing us forevermore from the bondage of sin. Jesus, like the little boy, says to us all, you're mine twice, once because I bought you with my own blood, and once because I am the God that made you.
