Revealed Bible Secrets
Brother Bob thought about the two pictures above after he heard a person say he was saved by just going into a church house every week. Just going into a church house every week won't save anyone. Friend reading this anywhere I pray in Jesus name that you confess Jesus as God (this means tell the entire world like Brother Bob on this blog that Jesus is God with no shame) and believe in your heart (the gospel) that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again which is the only way to be saved according to Romans 10:9, Romans 1:16, and 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. I told that sinner if I go into a garage like the one pictured above, that don't make me a car. If I go into the barn with the mules pictured above that don't make me a mule. And if any sinner goes into a church house every week, that don't make them a saved christian.
According to the bible, friends everywhere reading this, you must know Jesus as God to receive eternal life and salvation. John 17:3 proves this by saying And this is life eternal (salvation), that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. Wow, this scripture proclaims that when anyone knows Jesus as God, they will be saved and receive eternal life. Hebrews 7:25 also promises that only Jesus can save sinners from the guttermost to the uttermost and says Wherefore He (Jesus) is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him (Jesus), seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.
I've also heard other people say that they can be saved by being religious, sincere, and a good person that believes in a diety or some kind of a god. Everybody believes in a diety unless they're total infidels or atheists. But, according to 1 Timothy 2:5 there is one God (not just some kind of a god or gods), and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me. Jesus also said at John 10:9 I am the door, by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Right now, friend reading this anywhere enter into the gate or door of the kingdom by Jesus and be saved.
Good people without Jesus go to hell. Saved sinners with Jesus go to heaven. Everyone must have Jesus to be saved and go to heaven. 1 Corinthians 13:3 says And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity (Jesus), I am nothing. A person could do good deeds and go to church every week of his life and go to hell without Jesus. On the other hand, a sinner could murder, rape, and lie most of his life, but like the thief on the cross by Jesus can at his last breath say Lord Jesus remember me and go to heaven. After you read this, Brother Bob is not saying to sin your entire life and wait until your last breath to be saved and accept Jesus as God. Romans 6:1 says What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Remember Romans 6:23 says For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Brother Bob has heard many people say I'll wait until I feel more like it to get Jesus and be saved. Brother Bob tells these people, nobody gets saved tomorrow and nobody got saved yesterday. It's a now salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 says For He saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee; Behold now is the accepted time; Behold now is the day of salvation. Friend reading this anywhere now and today is the time for you to be saved. Hebrews 3:15 also says To day if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. The pleasures of sin are just for a season according to Hebrews 11:25 but the pleasures with Jesus are for evermore according to Psalm 16:11.
OK, for our next revealed bible secret, pictured above we see Revelation 1:8 that says I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty (defined as Almighty God in greek). According to this bible scripture, Jesus was there when it all started, in fact He started it all; and He'll be there when it all ends, He's gonna end it all.
A person once told Brother Bob, I don't see how God could love me because there is nothing good in me. I answered that person and told him I agree that there is nothing good in you or me for God to love. But, God always loves us with an everlasting love because God is love. Jeremiah 31:3 says the Lord hath appeared of old unto me saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. 1 John 4:8 also says God is love.
Jesus as God loves us now, tomorrow, and Jesus will always love us with an everlasting love even when we are unloveable. And the greatest gift of God's love to us all was Jesus because John 3:16 says For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.
OK, as you look at the above picture and our next revealed bible secret, remember you don't need a catholic priest to pray for you, because Jesus as our eternal high priest ever liveth to make intercession for you. Hebrews 7:25 promises wherefore He is able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Friend reading this anywhere, you don't need a catholic priest to be your mediator to approach God because Jesus is the one and only mediator between God and men. 1 Timothy 2:5 says For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. And Jesus is better than any catholic priest because Jesus as our high priest is touched with the feeling of our infirmities. Hebrews 4:15 says For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities (which really means Jesus is touched with the feeling of our infirmities), but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
For my final revealed bible secret today, let's look at the above picture and see how blessed it was for the prostitute at the well to witness to the men of her city and take them to Jesus to be saved. This woman had been married to five husbands and when she met Jesus, she was shacking with a sixth man who was not her husband. I believe this prostitute also slept with hundreds of men in the city where she lived.
Jesus told the prostitute at John 4:16 Go call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her Thou hast well said, I have no husband. For thou hast had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband; in that saidst thou truly.
Now take time to read how this prostitute became a great witness for Jesus by winning all her men lovers from her city to God as she led them to Jesus at the well. This woman is a hero to Brother Bob and led hundreds of adulterers and whoremongers to salvation and Jesus. This is why Jesus said at Luke 5:32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Rejoice as you read John 4:28 that says The woman then left her waterpot (she left her waterpot because she found the eternal living water Jesus), and went her way into the city, and saith to the men (notice that the woman witnessed to her men lovers and not women) come see a man (Jesus) which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ? Then they went out of the city and came unto Him. Hallelujah, the end result was that a prostitute and hundreds of sinners were saved by the witness of one former prostitute on the streets of her city to many men about the Lord Jesus.
