A White Stone Part Three



     Today is yet another bible study of why we should rejoice as overcomers who receive a white stone from Jesus as an admission ticket to the new heaven that removes all our sins forevermore. Jesus promises saints at Revelation 2:17 To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

     To understand why Jesus gives overcoming saints a white stone, let's look at another greek definition of how white stones were used in the days of Jesus. Pictured above we see a jury and some black and white stones. In ancient Greece, jurors would use black and white stones to determine whether a criminal was guilty or not guilty. When a jury was in deliberation, the jurors would drop either a white stone or a black stone into a bag. The white stone said the criminal was innocent or not guilty. The black stone said the criminal was guilty.

     Sometimes a jury would be hung because there would be one white stone among the black stones or one black stone among the white stones. But when the jury came to a final decision, they would present to a judge a bag with either one white stone or one black stone in the bag. If the stone was black, the criminal went to prison or died. If the stone was white, the criminal was free as anybody in the land. After the judge presented the white or black stone to the criminal, that was the end of the argument; the criminal could not make any more reprisals, rebuttals, or appeals to higher courts. The decision was final.

     Now notice that Jesus as the Final Highest Judge gives all saints who confess Jesus as God and believe in their hearts that Jesus died for them on the cross and rose again a white stone. As Jesus gives each saint a white stone, Jesus proclaims that all His saints are not guilty, as Jesus remembers their sins no more. Jesus pronounced His verdict for all saints at Hebrews 10:17 by saying And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

     Friend reading this anywhere, confess Jesus as God today and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again and receive a white stone from Jesus. Jesus will make you free and remember your sins no more. Jesus will forgive you as the blood of Jesus washes away all your sins.  Jesus told us at John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Romans 8:33 also says Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? (Friends no one can accuse us of our past sins because Jesus and His white stone has set us free and not guilty forevermore). It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

     OK, for our next picture we will look at the life of the Apostle Paul and find the only other place in the bible where the white stone appears. When Paul was a Pharisee sinner, Paul acted like a juror and gave his voice to condemn christians to death by showing a black stone instead of a white stone to christians. Paul said at Acts 26:9 I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Which thing I also did in Jerusalem and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests, and when they were put to death, I gave my voice (defined as presented black stones instead of white stones to condemn christians to death) against them. When Paul showed a black stone as his vote to condemn a christian to death, Paul blackballed that christian.

     Also, people in the old days like Paul voted to accept or reject a person from joining a club by either dropping a white stone or a black stone into a bag. If there was just one black stone in the bag among 100 white stones, the black stone blackballed that person and denied him from joining the club. But friend reading this anywhere, aren't you glad that when we believe Jesus as God, Jesus gives us a white stone admission ticket to heaven and no man or anything can blackball us and stop us from going to heaven. Romans 8:38 promises For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate (or blackball) us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


     OK, you might say Brother Bob how do the above pictures of gasoline selling for $5.15 a gallon and a for sale sign in front of a foreclosed home relate to the white stone that Jesus gives all overcoming saints? Friend reading this anywhere, don't be discouraged about the high cost of gasoline, food, or housing in your country because Jesus promises that all saints will overcome this troubled world as Jesus gives each saint a white stone admission ticket to the peaceful kingdom forevermore.

     When Jesus spoke to the church of Pergamos, Jesus said at Revelation 2:15 that He hated the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes. Today, the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes (defined as conquering people) still exists where wealthy leaders conquer and control people by raising prices for rent, food, and gasoline. In Jesus' day, the Nocolaitanes became big businessmen over the people. The popes in the catholic church would take all the peoples money and put it into King George's treasury. The rich got richer and the poor got poorer. This is why the Vatican was running over with money and the poor folk had nothing.

     But even though the Nicolaitanes were oppressing the people of the church of Pergamos, Jesus' promise of a white stone given to the saints at Pergamos encouraged these saints to rejoice. The hope of receiving that little ole white stone caused the saints at Pergamos to say we're gonna overcome, we're gonna live right, we're gonna hate sin, and we're gonna serve our Saviour Jesus and continue to bless the poor; we don't care about the Nicolaitanes.

     Today, friend reading this anywhere, lets be like the saints at Pergamos and not be discouraged by the troubled world and high cost of living around us in our countries. Say the following scriptures and praise Jesus for giving us the hope of a white stone admission ticket to heaven where peace exists forevermore as we overcome this troubled world. Psalm 12:5 says For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. Ecclesiastes 5:8 tells us 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. Right now say and believe Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

     To end up today's bible study about the white stone, take a good look at the above picture of a sword and a white stone. According to Revelation 2:12 and Revelation 2:17, our Lord Jesus holds two things in his hands. In one hand Jesus holds a sharp sword of judgment with two edges and in the other hand Jesus holds a white stone promising an admission ticket to the eternal peace of the kingdom. Somewhere between the white stone and the sword each saint is standing. Friend which one will you choose; the white stone as an admission ticket to heaven for life and peace or the sword of judgment for damnation and destruction.

     Friend reading this anywhere, wouldn't you rather have forgiveness, mercy, and the gift of eternal life with our Lord Jesus in heaven than the sword of judgment and damnation in hell. It's up to you. He that overcometh and accepts Jesus as Lord gets the white stone promising admission to eternal peace in the kingdom. He that does not overcome and rejects Jesus as Lord gets the sword of judgment and damnation in hell forevermore.

     Brother Bob prays in Jesus name anyone who forevermore reads this bible study will make the right choice today and receive their own personal white stone admission ticket to heaven by confessing Jesus as God and believing in their heart that Jesus died for them and rose again. Let's all be like Joshua and choose to serve the Lord Jesus stated at Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve; Whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land ye dwell, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.  

     It has been a great blessing for Brother Bob to write these bible studies about the white stone. I pray in Jesus name that all the bible studies past present and future at preachbrotherbob will strengthen and bless all readers in any country forevermore.

A White Stone Part Two


     Friends, today we will continue our discussion about the white stone that Jesus gives to all overcomers who confess Jesus as God and believe in their hearts that Jesus died for them on the cross and rose again. The white stone that Jesus gives his saints promises them mansions in the kingdom as a reward for giving Jesus a home in each saints heart. We learned this last week as we studied the greek definition of the white stone at Revelation 2:17. Pictured above we see Mary and Joseph trying to find a home where the Lord Jesus could be born. You see in Jesus' day, when people traveled, there were no Holiday Inns or Howard Johnsons. People would ask permission to stay overnight at a neighbor's home as they traveled across a country.

     Pictured above we see that the owners of the inn refused to allow Mary and Joseph a room where our Lord Jesus could be born. As a result, Mary and Joseph had to borrow a manger as the birthplace for our Lord Jesus. Luke 2:7 says And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. I'd like to have been the man that let Jesus use my manger. Or even better, I'd like to be the man that owned the inn; I'd say here baby Jesus, take my comfortable room in this inn; I'll sleep in the barn.

     Friends, let's all learn a lesson from the above picture. Remember that when strangers ask us to bless them, they represent Jesus and should be given our best bed, food, and clothes. Don't make the mistake that the keepers of the inn above did by putting Jesus in a barn manger instead of a nice soft bed in the inn. Instead, if we own an inn, we should all go sleep in the barn and let Jesus as a stranger sleep in the most comfortable bed of our inn. Jesus will appreciate our kindness and give us a white stone reward to present to Jesus in heaven, guaranteeing us all a mansion surrounded by a street of gold and walls of jasper, instead of a barn behind a motel.

     I remember one time a lady gave Brother Bob a bag full of clothes and at first I was happy to receive the clothes. But when Brother Bob opened the bag, the clothes had holes in them and were worn out and old. I had to throw out the clothes. Friends, remember when you bless a stranger who represents Jesus, give the stranger new clothes, fresh food, and a clean comfortable room in your house or hotel.

     Take some time to meditate on the words of Jesus at Matthew 25:34 that says Then shall the king say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was an hungered and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger and ye took me in. Naked and ye clothed me; I was sick and ye visited me; I was in prison and ye came unto me. After reading this bible verse, remember that whatever you do to strangers you do to Jesus.

     Now let Brother Bob ask you a question as you read this bible study and see how the innkeepers pictured above rejected our Lord Jesus by throwing Him out of the inn. Since you have to accept Jesus into your hearts and homes to get a white stone admission ticket to receive a mansion of peace forevermore in the kingdom, does Jesus feel at home in your house?

     If Jesus came to your house today, would you have to throw away all your nasty magazines or turn the TV channel to another channel? Friends, if Jesus doesn't feel at home in your house, don't expect a white stone. But if Jesus comes to your house and feels comfortable by kicking off his shoes as He puts his toes in the carpet, Jesus will promise and say to you; You can come to my kingdom soon that has many mansions, as Jesus gives you a white stone admission ticket to heaven as a token of His appreciation for your kindness as He leaves.

     OK, you might say what is Brother Bob doing now with a picture above of people in a hotel asking for a room to stay in overnight? Notice that the husband and wife are giving the front desk hotel clerk a credit card that the husband signs, guaranteeing a room to stay in overnight. Friends, when we all get ready to check into our mansions in heaven, Jesus will give us all a white stone which is like a credit card that Jesus signs for us guaranteeing us eternal rest in our heavenly mansions.

     And Jesus' white stone that is like a signed credit card will not run out or max out because Jesus owns all the cattle on a thousand hills and all the taters in them hills and all the gold. Jesus owns everything friend, and Jesus ain't gonna bankrupt. Jesus said at Psalm 50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine.


     OK, as you look at the above pictures of a trophy and a white stone, let's learn another greek definition of the white stone reward given to victorious saints. Revelation 2:17  says To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone; and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

     In Jesus' day, the white stone was called a victory stone. Back in the old days, when they had contests for wrestling, throwing spears, or shooting bows and arrows, they didn't give out big tall trophies with names all over them; the winner or overcomer got a white rock with the name of the victor in the white rock. When an athlete won an ancient greek contest, he did not get 62 million dollars and a three year contract for an extra 200 million dollars over three years; The greek athlete just got a white stone with his name in it, guaranteeing that the champion would be admitted to a banquet with his own personal nameplate of honor where he would be fed at the public's expense.

     Friends, the white stone that Jesus gives to overcoming saints is like the victory stone given to greek athletes, guaranteeing admission to the marriage supper banquet of the Lamb and the hidden manna. And Jesus will always provide our food and living water at this eternal glorious banquet. Revelation 7:17 promises For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of water; and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.


     Finally, as you look at the above picture, remember that as you receive your own personal white stone admission ticket to heaven for believing Jesus as your God, you will be happy to just be present as a doorkeeper at the marriage supper of the Lamb Jesus with your own personal nameplate of honor. We will all rejoice and tell Jesus Psalm 84:10 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. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

     Friend, since you will be the only one that knows your new name in your white stone and won't know the new names in any other saints' white stones, there will be no jealousy in heaven. When a saint gets to the marriage supper of the Lamb, Jesus might call out the names of John, Peter, and James; Jesus may not mention Brother Bob's or any other saint's name reading this bible study at the marriage supper of the Lamb; But we'll all be so happy just to be sitting at Jesus' banquet table or standing as a doorkeeper at the marriage supper of the Lamb.

     You won't be jealous of Brother Bob's seat at the marriage supper of the Lamb. And Brother Bob won't be jealous of your seat at the marriage supper of the Lamb. We'll all just be glad as saints to be present at the marriage supper of our Lord Jesus with our white stones with our own personal nameplates of honor. Brother Bob will shout all over heaven because of that little ole white stone that Jesus gave him.

     Stay tuned because another blessed bible study about the white stone is soon to come. I pray in Jesus name these bible studies give all my friends peace and strength everywhere on this earth. 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.

A White Stone Part One


     Friends take a good look at the above picture of a white stone. Today we will learn that any overcomer who believes Jesus is God and that Jesus died for them on the cross and rose again will receive their own personal white stone (defined in greek as an admission ticket to heaven). The white stone admission ticket to heaven was the promised blessing to the church of Pergamos and to all overcomers with the Lord Jesus. This bible study will teach you the original greek meaning of the word white stone, how to receive the white stone, and why it is so important for all saints to personally get their own white stone from Jesus to present as an admission ticket for entrance to heaven and the marriage supper of the Lamb Jesus.

     Let me state that we can only understand why Jesus gives overcoming saints a white stone as an admission ticket to heaven by looking at the many greek definitions of the word white stone. The new testament originally was written in greek and I encourage all those who read this bible study to use the website blueletterbible and learn the many meanings in greek about the blessed white stone given to overcoming saints. Type white stone in the search box in blueletterbible and click the strongs box which will put a number by white stone that you can click to see the greek meaning of white stone. You can do this with any word of the bible to read the entire bible in hebrew and greek and learn the true meanings of all the words of the bible.

     What you read in this bible study might not appear in your country's translation of the bible but it's the truth and the original greek meaning of the word white stone. Also I encourage all saints who read this to do a general google search for "white stone revelation" and you will learn the many ways white stones were used during the time that our Lord Jesus spake to the church of Pergamos at Revelation 2:12-17

     Now to understand the importance and blessing of receiving a white stone admission ticket to heaven take time to read what Jesus said to the church of Pergamos. Revelation 2:12 says And to the angel of the church in Pergamos (defined as height) write; These things saith He (Jesus) which hath the sharp sword with two edges. I know thy works and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is; and thou holdest fast my name and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you where Satan dwelleth.

     Revelation 2:14 goes on to say But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. Repent, or else I will come unto thee quickly and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone and in the stone a new name written which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

     Notice that in the above bible verse to receive the promised blessing of a white stone admission ticket to heaven, saints had to 1) deny sexual sins (fornication which is sex before marriage), 2) deny the love of money which was the doctrine of Balaam who agreed to curse God's people to receive money from King Balac and finally 3) deny being proud with power to control and conquer people which was the doctrine of the Nicolaitaines (defined as conquering people from two greek words nikos which means to conquer and laos which means the people).

     1 John 2:15 warns us to not commit the above three listed sins so we can get our personal blessed white stone and says Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh (sin of fornication), and the lust of the eyes (love of money or the doctrine of Balaam), and the pride of life (love of power over people or the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes) is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.

     Today as in the days of the church of Pergamos, sexual sins of fornication, the love of money, and the pride of controlling and conquering people prevent people from receiving Jesus as God. Saints should wait until after marriage by a minister before being with a husband or wife to get the white stone; Saints should bless and give away money to the poor to get the white stone instead of loving and hoarding money; and finally saints should be humble as servants to all people to get the white stone instead of conquering and controlling people.

     Friends, the good news is that right now if you confess Jesus as God and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you and rose again you will be called an overcomer and be able to receive your own personal white stone admission ticket to get into heaven. John 16:33 promises saints that with Jesus you will receive your own personal white stone as an overcomer and says These things I have spoken unto you that in me ye might have peace; In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I (Jesus) have overcome the world. Also note that as you claim daily Galatians 2:20, telling the devil I am crucified with Christ, the blood of Jesus will cover you and make you an overcomer with a white stone because Revelation 12:11 says And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.

     OK, friends everywhere as you look at the above picture of a family blessing a stranger with food and a blanket to use in the corner of their home, let's look at one of the greek definitions of a white stone. Now note that in the days of Jesus, after the stranger was comforted in the family's home, the stranger would show his appreciation by giving each family member a white stone that could be presented at the stranger's home as an admission ticket to enter the stranger's house. Note that if you give Jesus a place and home in your heart, Jesus will give you a white stone as an admission ticket to enter a mansion that Jesus has personally prepared for you in heaven.

     When Jesus walked on this earth, when a stranger was taken in, the stranger gave the owner of the house a white traveler's stone as a token of appreciation. That white stone said to the man that took the stranger in, When you're down in my neck of the woods you always got a place to lay your head. History records that in the days of Jesus, a white stone was defined as tesserae hospitals where a white stone was divided into two equal parts by two parties wishing to make an agreement or covenant of friendship. Each party took one half of the white stone, wrote his own name on it and then exchanged it for the other party's half of the white stone. Later, when either party made a journey that took them into the others territory, upon arriving at the border, the half of the white stone was presented to the watchman. Immediately, the visiting party would be given the best hospitality and a safe passage.

     Now lets say that thirty years later, the little boy pictured above goes with his white stone to visit the stranger's house. After the stranger hears a knock at the door of his house and opens the door, there's a bald headed, pot gutted, snaggle toothed, long haired whiskered hippie. The hippie says to the stranger, well I'm here to stay awhile. The stranger might say no you ain't; you need a dipping and a bathing and a shaving. You ain't comin to my house. The little boy now grown as a hippie replies Yea but lookey here, and there's that little white stone. Uh Oh. The stranger's gotta honor his vow. So the stranger says Bring that ole bum in; shave him up, clean him up, and give him a bath and put him at the table, and let him eat with my children.

     Friends, Jesus has given white stones to all saints that take Jesus into their hearts and believe Jesus is God. Friend if you take Jesus into your heart, Jesus will take you in and bless you with your own personal mansion of peace forevermore. Like the bald headed, pot gutted, snaggle toothed, long haired whiskered hippie, we may not look very pretty, very handsome, or be very rich; But when we knock on Jesus' door which is one of the twelve gates or doors of heaven with our own personal white stone admission tickets saying Well Jesus Here I am; Jesus will reply Come on in and enjoy your own personal mansion because my word is good and according to Revelation 2:17 your white stone gives you a right to the hidden manna or marriage supper of the Lamb Jesus who is the manna or bread of life.

     Like the family pictured above, when a stranger comes to visit you, maybe all you got to give the stranger is a blanket in the corner of your house because you're poor. The next day the stranger rises up and leaves. But you took the stranger in and gave him the best that you had. But, if you give any stranger just a blanket in a corner of your house, you are blessing Jesus and Jesus won't forget your kindness because Matthew 25:40 says Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  Also note that Hebrews 13:2 says Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

     Friend reading this anywhere, if you give Jesus your heart today and confess Jesus as God believing Jesus died on the cross for you and rose again, Jesus will never forget it. In fact whatever you give Jesus on this earth as you bless the poor strangers, widows, and orphans, Jesus will give it back to you pressed down, shaken together and running over because Luke 6:38 says Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall measured to you again. Remember if you give Jesus your best, Jesus has even better for you.


     OK, to close out today's bible study, take time to read a little story from my good friend Pastor Sonny Mull about what happened to the little old lady pictured above as she was driving down the road. This is a true story. This story will help you understand what a blessing it is to get a white stone from our Lord Jesus as an admission ticket to heaven. One time there was an elderly lady who was still able to drive, going down the road with her car, kinda chugging along like Grandma does and her car broke down and she was stranded on the side of the highway. She didn't know what to do. She was old and didn't walk too good. She got out of her car and limped across the road. She walked up the first sidewalk she saw and knocked on the first door she saw.

     A young lady came to the door and said what can I do for you mam. The old lady said well my car broke down and I don't know anybody around here; I'm a stranger just a passing through and would you help me. The young lady said why sure darling come on in. The young lady took her in and fed her, let her wash her hands and face and clean up and take a shower. Then the young lady called someone to fix the old lady's car. After the old lady's car got fixed, they gave the fixed car to the old lady. The old lady spent only two days and two nights at the young lady's house.

     When the old lady left she said, How much do I owe you? The young lady said Darling you don't owe us a thing. I just wanted to help you; You're such a sweet little old lady. We just wanted to let you know somebody loves you. The old lady gets in her car cranks it up and heads down the road. Two years later, the young lady receives a letter in the mail. The old lady died and left her millions of dollars.

     Friends let's all learn a lesson from this story and remember that when we bless strangers and take them in like the little old lady in the story above, we bless Jesus, and down the road, Jesus will pay us back.  Jesus told us 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.

     Friend, after you read this bible study today, don't ask Jesus for a white cadillac, a white corvette, a white bass boat, or a white house. All that we should ask from Jesus is Jesus give us all our own personal little white stone. Friend when you receive Jesus today as your Lord and believe in your heart that Jesus died for you and rose again, Jesus will give you a white stone that will give you everything that your heart can desire.

     Friend, when you get your white stone as an overcomer with Jesus as your God, there will be a new name in the white stone that only you will know. Hallelujah the believers in Jesus as God all got white rocks waitin' on them in heaven. Brother Bob's gonna get a white stone with a new name in it and no one else will recognize or know the new name in Brother Bob's white stone. Brother Bob also won't recognize the new names in any other saints' white stone. The reason for this is because each saints mansion in heaven has already been surveyed off and I won't fight over your mansion and you won't fight over my mansion.

     Stay tuned for more bible studies on the white stone soon to come. I pray in Jesus name that this little bible study today has blessed my friends all over this earth.
