Today we will learn that the Lord will command a blessing for any saint who worships by faith at the feet of our high priest Jesus Christ. Pictured above the Lord describes this blessing as precious ointment poured upon the head of the priest Aaron that ran down upon his beard and went down to the skirts of his garments. Now Hebrews 7:17 says the Lord Jesus is our high priest forever after the order of Melchisedec commanding a blessing to anyone who will worship Him as God at His feet by the skirts or (hem) of His garment.
This is stated at Psalm 133 Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard; that went down to the skirts of his garments. As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion; for there the Lord commanded the blessing (at the skirts and feet of our Lord Jesus), even life for evermore.
Right now, I pray in Jesus name that anyone reading this will receive God's commanded blessing at Jesus' feet by confessing and worshipping by faith Jesus as God, believing that Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Friend get saved today and repent by turning away from your sins to live each day with our Lord Jesus. Picture yourself worshipping at the feet of our Lord Jesus by faith and receive the commanded blessing of salvation today.
Alright, let's look at a woman named Ruth pictured above who received the commanded blessing at the feet of her kinsman redeemer Boaz. Now the Lord Jesus is our kinsman redeemer who has bought His saints with His precious blood that removed our sins forevermore. 1 Peter 1:18 says Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed (bought) 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. Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was made manifest in these last times for you.
Like Ruth pictured above at the feet of her redeemer Boaz, let's worship at the feet of our Redeemer the Lord Jesus to receive the commanded blessing. Because Ruth humbled herself at the skirt and feet of Boaz, Boaz redeemed and bought her field, as Ruth became the bride of Boaz. Right now friend anywhere humble yourself and worship at the skirt and feet of our Redeemer Jesus and become the bride of Christ. Boaz bought Ruth as the bride connected to the field, and now Jesus will buy His bride saints that are connected to this field world with his own blood that removes our sins forevermore.
The story about Ruth receiving the commanded blessing at Boaz's feet is at Ruth 3:7 and says And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn; and she (Ruth) came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down. And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself; and behold, a woman lay at his feet. And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid; spread therefore thy skirt (note that Ruth is receiving the commanded blessing at the skirt and feet of her redeemer Boaz) over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman. And he said, Blessed be thou of the Lord, my daughter; for thou has shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.
OK, another woman named Mary Magdalene pictured above received the commanded blessing as she worshipped the Lord Jesus at His feet. Luke 7:37 says And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment. And stood at His feet behind Him weeping, and began to wash His feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
Wow, what an honor it was for Mary Magdalene to wash Jesus' feet with tears, wipe them with her hair, as she kissed and anointed Jesus' feet with ointment. As a result, Jesus said to Mary Magdalene at Luke 7:50 Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. Friends everywhere, if Jesus has been good to you and blessed you in this life, be like Mary Magdalene, and right now worship the Lord Jesus at His feet as you receive the commanded blessing of salvation and peace.
Wow, pictured above we see yet another woman who had an issue of blood for twelve years that knew that the commanded blessing of healing stated at Psalm 133 was received by touching the skirt or hem of Jesus' garment as she worshipped Him as Lord at His feet. Her story is recorded at Matthew 9:20 saying And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind Him (Jesus), and touched the hem (skirt) of His garment; For she said within herself, If I may but touch His garment, I shall be whole.
Matthew 9:22 goes on to say But Jesus turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Right now let's also worship the Lord Jesus at His feet like this woman as we by faith touch the skirt hems of His priestly garment to receive the commanded blessing of healing in our bodies.
Pictured above we see some more women who received the commanded blessing by worshipping the Lord Jesus at His feet. Mary Magdalene, the other Mary, and Salome listed at Mark 16:1 were told by an angel at Matthew 28:7 Go quickly, and tell His disciples that He (Jesus) is risen from the dead; and behold, He goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him; lo, I have told you.
Matthew 28:8 goes on to say And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring His disciples word. And as they went to tell His disciples, behold Jesus met them saying, All hail. And they came and held Him by the feet and worshipped Him.
These women bowed at the feet of our Lord Jesus on this earth holding His feet (I do not believe they held His feet as He rose above them in the air), and as a result Jesus blessed them greatly. I must say that saved women are a blessing because in the bible we usually see women worshipping Jesus at his feet receiving blessings. But Brother Bob says to all the brothers that read this, right now be like the apostle John and receive the commanded blessing by worshipping our Lord Jesus at the foot of the cross.
Also note that pictured above innumerable angels in heaven receive the commanded blessing by falling on their faces and worshipping at the feet of our Lord Jesus. Truly the commanded blessing is received as we humbly worship at the feet of our Lord Jesus. Revelation 7:11 says And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces (at the feet of Jesus), and worshipped God.
Note also that when the apostle John saw Jesus glorified at Patmos in a vision, John said at Revelation 1:17 I fell at his feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last; I am He that liveth, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore. Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. As John worshipped at the feet of Jesus, John received the commanded blessing to write about the blessed visions he saw in the book of Revelation. Like John, let's worship at the feet of Jesus and see blessed visions that will soon occur as we receive peace, strength, and healing
Remember, only worship Jesus as Lord at the feet of Jesus. Do not worship any person or angel at their feet. The apostle John learned this lesson at Revelation 22:8 that says And I John saw these things, and heard them, And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me; See thou do it not; for I am thy fellowservant and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book; worship God.
Notice that a true angel will always tell you to worship the Lord Jesus as God and not any angel or man. Angels are sent to saints by Jesus for blessings but only Jesus should be worshipped. Psalm 34:7 promises The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them. Psalm 91:11 also promises For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Finally, note that our Lord Jesus said at John 13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. Jesus promised happiness at John 13:17 if we wash each others feet. Truly peace and happiness will be ours if we worship Jesus as Lord at His skirts and feet and become humble servants to each other willing to wash the saints feet.
Oh, I must also mention the Caananite woman who also worshipped at the feet of our Lord Jesus, as she confessed that she was a sinful dog, willing to eat of the crumbs which fell by the feet of Jesus from the Master's table. When this woman asked Jesus to heal her daughter, Jesus said at Matthew 15:26 It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said Truth Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master's table. Because this woman worshipped at the feet of our Lord Jesus, Jesus commanded the blessing upon her by saying at Matthew 15:28 O woman, great is thy faith; be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
After reading this bible study today, let's all receive the commanded blessing daily by worshipping Jesus as Lord at His feet. I pray that this bible study blesses many people everywhere in Jesus name. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at email@example.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.

Today let's look at some blessed biblical mothers. These mothers daily prayed for their children and taught these kids the Word of God. Our first blessed mother pictured above is Jochebed who raised Moses. The story of how Jochebed saved baby Moses' life from Pharoah is recorded at Exodus 2:3 and says She took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river's brink. And his sister (Miriam) stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
Exodus 2:5 goes on to say And the daughter of Pharoah came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river's side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it. And when she had opened it, she saw the child; and behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children. Then said his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go, and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee? And Pharoah's daughter said to her, Go and the maid went and called the child's mother (Jochebed).
Wow, pictured above we see that Jochebed was allowed by Pharoah's daughter to raise and train up Moses about the Word of God. I believe Jochebed was a blessed mother that daily prayed for Moses and told him the truth about the Word of God. As a result, Hebrews 11:24 tells us By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of the Pharoah's daugher. Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.
Hebrews 11:26 goes on to say Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible.
I pray in Jesus name that all women reading this anywhere can be like Jochebed and see how important it is to pray daily for their children and teach them daily the truths about our Lord Jesus from the Word of God. Because Jochebed was faithful and taught the truth about Jesus daily to Moses, multitudes of people were blessed by Moses and freed from Egyptian slavery. Because of Jochebed's training, Moses chose to leave the fading riches of Egypt and instead of becoming a great Pharoah, served our Lord Jesus as a poor humble servant that led the children of God out of Egypt. Usually behind every great man of God, is a blessed mother who daily prayed for her child and shared the good news about our Lord Jesus.
Our next blessed biblical mother pictured above is Hannah praying for a child before the priest Eli. 1 Samuel 1:9 says So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the Lord. And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord and wept sore.
1 Samuel 1:11 goes on to say And she vowed a vow and said, O lord of hosts, If thou wilt look indeed on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.
God granted Hannah's prayer and blessed her with a child named Samuel. Hannah, like Jochebed was a blessed mother that daily prayed for her child Samuel and taught him about the Word of God. As a result, Samuel became a great prophet that had the honor of choosing two great kings named Saul and David that blessed multitudes of people. Note again, that behind most great men are blessed mothers.
But friend if you have an ungodly mother that denies Jesus like Brother Bob, Jesus who did the will of God will be your mother, father, sister and brother and train you to be a great man of God. Matthew 12:50 promises For whosoever shall do the will of my Father (Jesus and all the children of God) which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Friends don't be discouraged if your family rejects you because of Jesus; Ephesians 1:6 says you are accepted in the beloved by your brothers and sisters in the Lord. Jesus will send you saved brothers and sisters to accept you into the family of God and care for your needs daily like a mother and father. Psalm 27:10 promises When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
OK, let's see how God honored Hannah's prayers by giving her a child named Samuel. Hannah told the priest Eli at 1 Samuel 1:26 Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the Lord. For this child I prayed, and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him. Therefore also have I lent him to the Lord, as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the Lord. And he (Eli) worshipped the Lord there.
Samuel became a great prophet because his mother Hannah helped Samuel minister daily in the temple. Every year Hannah made Samuel a little coat to help him minister in the temple with Eli. 1 Samuel 2:18 says But Samuel ministered before the Lord, being a child, girded with a linen ephod. Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband (Elkanah) to offer the yearly sacrifice.
OK, our third blessed biblical mother today pictured above kneeling and worshipping our Lord Jesus in the womb of Mary is Elisabeth. Luke 1:39 tells us And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe (John the Baptist) leaped in her womb (note that abortion is wrong because baby John was alive and recognized our Lord Jesus in Mary's womb by leaping for joy in the womb of Elisabeth); and Elisabeth was filled with with the Holy Ghost. And she (Elisabeth) spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
Wow, Elisabeth proclaimed loudly that Jesus was Lord when Jesus was just a baby in the womb of Mary. And Elisabeth taught her son John the Baptist daily that Jesus was the Messiah and God come in the flesh. Because of Elisabeth ( a blessed mother), when John became an adult and saw Jesus, John recognized Jesus and proclaimed at John 1:29 Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John knew Jesus was Lord because of his mother Elisabeth's teachings and had the honor of baptizing our Lord Jesus. Again, behind many great men of God is a blessed mother. Thank you Lord Jesus for women like Jochebed, Hannah, and Elisabeth that take time to daily pray and train their children about our Lord Jesus.
Friend reading this anywhere, if Elisabeth can worship Jesus as Lord when Jesus was a little baby in the womb of Mary, get saved today and confess Jesus as your Lord, believing that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Repent and turn from your sins to live daily with our Lord Jesus. Become like Jochebed, Hannah, and Elisabeth as you daily meditate on the Word of God and live for our Lord Jesus daily.
Note that Simeon in the bible taught us that salvation is in a person named Jesus and not what man does. Religion is what man does. Salvation is what Jesus as God does. The only way to heaven is through Jesus and not by works. Good people who do good works without Jesus go to hell. Saved people with our Lord Jesus go to heaven. What counts in this life is what you do with Jesus. It's wrong to say if Jimmy is a good little boy, he'll go to heaven. Nope, it doesn't matter if Jimmy is good or bad that determines if he goes to heaven. What little Jimmy does with Jesus in this life determines if he goes to heaven. If Jimmy accepts Jesus as his Lord and believes Jesus died for him, was buried, and rose again, Jimmy goes to heaven. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me.
God promised Simeon that he would not die before he saw the Lord's Christ. Luke 2:26 says And it was revealed unto him (Simeon) by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for Him after the custom of the law.
Luke 2:28 goes on to say Then took he Him up in his arms (wow Simeon held God who was baby Jesus in his arms; just think how Simeon felt to hold God in his arms) and blessed God and said, Lord (wow Simeon got saved and proclaimed baby Jesus as God) now lettest thou servant depart in peace, according to thy word. For mine eyes have seen thy salvation (Glory to God, Simeon proclaimed that salvation is in a person named Jesus by saying mine eyes have seen thy salvation who is a person named the Lord Jesus).
Alright, our next blessed biblical mother pictured above is Rahab who hid spies of God under stalks of flax on the roof of her house from the enemy. Rahab knew to show kindness to strangers who could be angels sent for her protection. As a result, Rahab's life was spared from the destruction of Jericho by Joshua. The spies had Joshua save Rahab when he saw a scarlet thread outside the window of Rahab's house.
Now note that Rahab had a son named Boaz. Every day Rahab was a blessed mother that taught Boaz to show kindness to strangers. She would tell Boaz that their lives were spared after she had showed kindness to spies from another country. As a result, when Boaz became an adult, Boaz showed kindness to the Moabite stranger named Ruth by leaving handfuls of purpose for her as she gleaned in Boaz's field. Because Rahab was a blessed mother that trained Boaz to be kind to strangers, Boaz married Ruth the Moabitish damsel and became the grandparent to King David and our Lord Jesus.
Note also that everywhere in the bible Rahab is called a harlot except at Matthew 1:5 that says Rahab (not saying the harlot) is the blessed grandmother of our Lord Jesus. The reason for this is because when anything is connected to our Lord Jesus, sin is removed by the blood of Jesus. Rahab is the blessed grandmother of our Lord Jesus who is not remembered as a harlot but as a blessed mother that trained her son Boaz to be kind to strangers and marry a Moabite Ruth to prove that Jesus loves and saves sinners from all countries. Revelation 22:17 says And the Spirit and the bride say, Come, And let him that heareth say Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
OK, our final blessed biblical mothers today are Timothy's mother Eunice and his grandmother Lois pictured above. Because Eunice and Lois had unfeigned sincere faith, the child Timothy had unfeigned sincere faith. Eunice and Lois prayed daily for little Timothy and trained him about our Lord Jesus. As a result, Timothy became a great man of God.
The apostle Paul said at 2 Timothy 1:5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned (sincere) faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice, and I am persuaded that in thee also. Paul noted that because of the unfeigned faith of Eunice and Lois, three generations of blessed believers worshipped our Lord Jesus as little Timothy also received unfeigned faith.
Grandmothers reading this, be like Lois and take time to pray for your grandchildren and teach these precious little children about our Lord Jesus and the Word of God daily. Note that Deborah said that being a mother (not a prophetess or leader) to her little children is the most blessed job a woman can do on this earth. Deborah said at Judges 5:7 The inhabitants of the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother (not a prophetess or leader) in Israel.
During Deborah's life on this earth, the Canaanites forbid the children of God to live in villages. As a result the children of God lived in caves, byways, and backways in the woods. Deborah said I'm gonna be a blessed mother for my kids and fight with Barak against the Canaanites and allow my kids to inhabit and live in villages again in Israel. Deborah and Barak defeated the Canaanites, and Deborah's kids were able to live in the villages again because of their blessed mother Deborah.
Women reading this anywhere, be like Deborah and remember that being a mother is the most blessed occupation for any woman. Titus 2:4 tells women how to be good wives. It says That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. A good wife takes care of her husband and the kids and keeps a clean home. A bad wife neglects her husband and kids as she runs all night with a loud mouth in the streets and leaves her home like a pigpen. I pray in Jesus name that every woman reading this will become a godly wife and serve Jesus by taking care of their husbands and kids in a clean home.
I pray in Jesus name that this bible study blesses many people everywhere.

Until we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.

Today, we will learn to avoid the sinful decisions made by Lot during his life when he looked, leaned, lived, legislated, lost his testimony, lingered, learned the ways of Sodom, and left sinful children. Notice in the picture above that the first sin Lot did was to look at the well watered plain of sinful Sodom and move towards Sodom. Sin usually starts out with a wrong look and a move toward the deceiving beauty of this world.
Friends unlike Lot, heed to the warning of Psalm 101:3 saying I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes like a hellivsion TV with filthy commercials that can place bad thoughts into innocent children. Instead say Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord (the Word of God) always before me; because He (Jesus) is at my right hand; I shall not be moved. Instead of a TV, get a computer and program the computer to only watch and hear daily bible preaching and blessed music about our Lord Jesus.
OK, the story about the above picture is found at Genesis 13:5 that says And Lot also which went with Abram had flocks and herds, and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together; for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together. And there was strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.
Genesis 13:8 goes on to say And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife I pray thee between me and thee and between my herdmen and thy herdmen, for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself I pray thee from me. If thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right. If thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
Now notice what Lot did at Genesis 13:10 that says And Lot lifted up his eyes and beheld all the plain of Jordan that it was well watered every where before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan and Lot journeyed east and they separated themselves the one from the other.
Lot saw the grass of Sodom instead of the grace of our Lord Jesus. Lot saw the waters of Sodom instead of the wells of salvation. The bible warns us that this material world that appears beautiful is only temporary and passes away, but the unseen blessings from our Lord Jesus are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 tells us While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal (fading and passing away); but the things which are not seen (Jesus and the Word of God) are eternal. Friends let's daily look at the unseen eternal blessings of our Lord Jesus instead of this fading visible wicked world.
Unlike Lot, Jesus tells us to believe first and then we will see our blessings. Most people though desire to first see a blessing before they believe Jesus. Jesus told me to remind anyone reading this that the bible says at John 20:29 Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. Also Hebrews 11:6 says But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Try this; Say Jesus I believe you even if I don't see or feel any blessings, and Brother Bob guarantees you that your blessings will become visible and appear because Jesus will be pleased by your faith. Jesus responds to faith and not doubt requiring sight.
Alright, let's move on with our discussion about Lot. After Lot first looked at sinful Sodom, Lot leaned and pitched his tent toward sinful Sodom. Lot's look was followed by a lean. Pictured above we see Lot's tent leaning toward Sodom described at Genesis 13:12 that says Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
Neighbor, unlike Lot, avoid looking and leaning toward sin by giving no place to the devil in your life. Ephesians 4:27 says Neither give place to the devil. Instead of using alcohol, drugs, and sex before marriage when you are stressed; daily say I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus. I guarantee you that when your worries, stress, fears and problems are placed on the cross of Christ by faith, they will be destroyed and no longer exist. Friend, Jesus is the answer to your problems. Right now get saved and confess Jesus as your Lord, believing in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Repent and turn from your sins and live with our Lord Jesus daily.
OK, next we see that after Lot looked and leaned, Lot lived and legislated in Sodom. This is how sin progresses. First there is a look, then a lean, and finally the person lives in sin. Genesis 14:12 says And they took Lot, Abram's brothers son, who dwelt (lived) in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. Lot became lost in the sins of Sodom and called the sodomites his brethren at Genesis 19:7 where Lot said to the sodomites brethren, do not so wickedly.
Pictured above, Lot also agreed with the sins of Sodom by becoming a judge that legislated for Sodom at Genesis 19:1 that says And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate (defined as a judge in the gate) of Sodom, and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.
Wow, Lot's sin caused him to worship angels instead of the Lord Jesus. Neighbor, only the Lord Jesus and not angels should be worshipped. Notice what an angel told the apostle John when John tried to worship an angel. Revelation 22:8 says And I John saw these things, and heard them, And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me. See thou do it not; for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book; worship God. Notice a true angel will tell someone to worship the Lord Jesus and not any angel or person.
Alright, after Lot looked, leaned, lived, and legislated, Lot then lost his testimony and lingered in Sodom. After Lot was told by the angels that Sodom would be destroyed, his sons in law pictured above mocked his warnings to flee Sodom before destruction as Lot lost his testimony by lingering in Sodom. Genesis 19:14 says And Lot went out and spake unto his sons in law which married his daughters and said Up get ye out of this place, for the Lord will destroy this city; But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
The sins of Sodom also made Lot reprobate who could not pray for himself or his family and escape the destruction of Sodom. Lot lingered in Sodom and the angels had to be merciful to Lot, his wife and two daughters by setting them without the city of Sodom. Genesis 19:16 says And while he (Lot) lingered, the men (angels) laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him; and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
Abraham's prayers saved Lot from the destruction of Sodom. Lot could not pray for himself because he chose to tolerate the sins of Sodom. Friends reading this anywhere, Romans 1:28 tells us that the sin of sodomy and same sex marriage will give a person over to a reprobate mind (not being able to pray for themselves). Sodomites or people that compromise and agree with sodomy same sex marriage like Lot can not pray for themselves and need saved christians (like Abraham) to pray for them to be saved.
Finally, after Lot looked, leaned, lived, legislated, lost his testimony, and lingered, Lot learned the ways of Sodom causing sinful children to be left. Lot and his two daughters learned in Sodom how to drink liquor and intoxicating beverages. After Lot's two daughters got their father Lot drunk, they both committed incest with Lot and gave birth to sinful Moab and Ammon. This left the evil children of the Moabites and the Ammonites. Friends, learn a lesson today from this story; Anyone that leans toward Sodom and this wicked world, will raise up enemies against the cross of our Lord Jesus like the Ammonites and Moabites.
God punished what Lot did with his daughters by not allowing for ten generations an Ammonite or Moabite to enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever. Deuteronomy 23:3 says An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord, even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever. But, Ruth the Moabite who married Boaz and became Jesus' great grandmother was the eleventh generation of the Moabites and blessed to enter into the congregation of the Lord. Neighbor, rejoice and read Matthew 1 and count eleven generations to Boaz and Ruth to prove that Ruth the Moabite was the eleventh generation and blessed by our Lord Jesus.
As always it is a blessing to write these bible studies that I pray bless people forevermore. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at email@example.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133. Until we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day in Jesus name.
Saturday, November 21, 2015
Today, we'll learn what will happen when we are soon caught up to be with our Lord Jesus in the clouds in the air to live in peace forevermore. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 promises For the Lord (Jesus) Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel (Michael), and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up (snatched away) together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Now when the saints are caught up to be with Jesus, they will be changed or transfigured into glorified bodies in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. 1 Corinthians 15:51 promises Behold, I shew you a mystery (no one knows the exact time of the catching up, it's a mystery); We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed (defined as transfigured into glorified bodies like a caterpillar changing into a butterfly by metamorphosis). In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible; and we shall be changed.
OK, Brother Bob asked Jesus if a changed transfigured saint in a glorified body is in any building or car with a roof and doors when it's time to be caught up, will that saint be caught up to the clouds through the roof or through one of the doors? Jesus said the answer to this question can be found at John 20:19 pictured above when Jesus appeared in a glorified changed body to his disciples. John 20:19 says Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
Notice that Jesus in His glorified changed body pictured above descended through the roof to appear to his disciples. Jesus made sure that the Word said that when the doors were shut, Jesus stood in the midst to prove that a glorified changed body can travel through any roof, door, or wall. Friends, rejoice because like our Lord Jesus, when saints are caught up with changed glorified bodies, they will go through any roof of a building or car to be with our Lord Jesus in the clouds in the air forevermore in peace. If Jesus in His glorified body can descend through a roof, saints in glorified bodies can be caught up through any roof of a building or car to be with Jesus in the clouds. No roof, wall, door, or grave will stop anyone from being caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds. And saints will be caught up through roofs and not through walls, doors, or floors because we'll be caught up (not caught out or caught down) to be with our Lord Jesus.
How encouraging to know that also the saints who have died in Christ will also be raised and caught up to be with our Lord Jesus soon. Romans 8:11 promises But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (restore to life) your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. Aint no grave gonna hold the dead in Christ down. The dead in Christ will bust open their graves and go through their coffins, tombstones, and the ground alive when they are caught up to be with the Lord Jesus in the clouds.
Alright, next Brother Bob asked Jesus after the saints are caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds, will the saints' earthly bodies disappear or remain? To answer this question we must look at what happened to Jesus when He rose from the dead and left an empty tomb behind. After Jesus left the empty tomb, His earthly body disappeared and could not be found. Like Jesus, when the saints are caught up, our earthly bodies will disappear and will not be found on the earth. Pictured above when Jesus rose from His tomb, only His linen clothes and wrapped napkin that was about His head remained. Like Jesus, when the saints are caught up, only our clothes will remain as our earthly bodies disappear. When Brother Bob gets caught up out of this place, people on this earth will only find my dockers pants, a croft and barrow shirt, and my asics sneakers.
Friends, how encouraging to know that our Lord Jesus is not in His tomb. Buddha and Mohammed are still in their tombs. But, the tomb of Jesus is empty. Jesus is not there. Jesus is risen and lives forevermore. Like Jesus, when saints get caught up, their earthly bodies will not be found on this earth as they live forevermore with Jesus. This is because 1 John 4:17 says as He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world.
Matthew 28 tells us about the picture above and how the angels proclaimed that Jesus is not in the tomb; He is risen. Matthew 28 says In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold there was a great earthquake; for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
Matthew 28:3 goes on to say His countenance was like lightning; and his raiment white as snow; And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said, come, see the place where the Lord lay.
After Jesus rose from the dead, only Jesus' linen clothes and napkin that was about His head pictured above were found by Peter and John in His empty tomb. Like Jesus, people on this earth will only find saints' clothes after they are caught up in glorified bodies to be with our Lord Jesus. John 20:6 speaks about this and says Then cometh Simon Peter following him (John), and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about His head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
Finally, let's learn why Jesus wrapped the napkin that was about His head and put it in a place by itself in the empty tomb. Jesus neatly wrapped this napkin to prove that His earthly body was not stolen from the tomb. After Jesus rose from the dead, soldiers were paid large sums of money to lie and say that His disciples came by night and stole His earthly body while the soldiers slept.
Matthew 28:12 says And when they were assembled (the soldiers and chief priests) with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers. Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole Him away while we slept. Matthew 28:15 goes on to say So they took the money, and did as they were taught; and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
Now friends think about this: If a thief stole the earthly body of Jesus from the tomb, that thief would quickly throw Jesus' unwrapped napkin on top of Jesus' linen clothes. Jesus knew that people would lie and say His earthly body was stolen from the tomb. This is why Jesus wrapped the napkin neatly in a place by itself to prove that no thief stole his body. A thief wouldn't take time to neatly wrap the napkin. Also, Jesus' tomb was sealed by a stone and guarded by soldiers and it was not possible for a thief to enter Jesus' tomb and steal his earthly body.
Finally, let's learn about what the neatly wrapped napkin left by a master during a meal pictured above meant to his servant according to hebrew tradition. When a servant set the dinner table for his master, the table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until his master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table until the master was finished.
When the master was finished eating, the master would wad up his napkin and toss it onto the table. The servant would then know to clear the table. The wadded napkin meant I'm done. But if the master got up from the table and neatly wrapped his napkin and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because the neatly wrapped napkin meant I'm not finished; I'm coming back. Friend reading this anywhere get saved right now and confess Jesus as your Lord, believing in your heart that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Repent and turn from your sins to live with Jesus daily. Jesus neatly wrapped the napkin in His tomb to let us all know that He's coming back to be the King of this earth for 1000 glorious years and in the kingdom forevermore.
Jesus also told His saints with the neatly wrapped napkin that I'm not finished and I'm coming back for the marriage supper of the Lamb prepared for all my saints. Revelation 19:7 tells us Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him (Jesus); for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife (the church and all the saved saints) 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.
As always it is a blessing to write these bible studies that I pray in Jesus name give peace to all my friends in the many countries on this earth.

Today, look above and see pictures of two women in the bible named Eve and Mary. The first woman Eve without a man caused the downfall of the human race by eating of the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. As a result, God used another woman named Mary (a virgin) without a man who blessed the human race by giving birth to our Lord Jesus who sets us free from our sins.
Alright, let's look again at Eve and Mary pictured above and learn that Jesus is the promised seed of the woman Eve born through the lineage of Mary stated at Luke 3:38 (that goes back to Adam and Eve) that bruised satan's head while satan bruised Jesus' heel at the cross of calvary. During Eve's life, God promised at Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee (the devil) and the woman (Eve), and between thy seed and her seed (Jesus), it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.
The promised seed of Eve (Jesus) bruised satan's head because Romans 16:20 says And the God of peace (Jesus) shall bruise satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. Also, the promised seed of Eve (Jesus) had His heel bruised by satan at the cross of calvary because Isaiah 53:5 says But He (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions, He (Jesus) was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.
OK, for our next thought today we see pictured above how Jesus was raised to life from the dead. Matthew 28:2 says And behold, there was a great earthquake, for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door (of the tomb), and sat upon it. Like our Lord Jesus, Romans 8:11 promises But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken (raise to life) your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Soon our Lord Jesus will be the king of this earth for 1000 years. Revelation 20:6 promises that saved saints will be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with Jesus for 1000 years. Jesus will come from heaven on a white horse to have His feet touch the mount of Olives and become the king of this earth in Jerusalem for 1000 years.
During this 1000 years with Jesus (the millenium), if someone asks where are the cemeteries (like the one pictured above); saved saints will say there are none because no one dies with Jesus. If someone asks where are the hospitals; saved saints will say there are none because no one gets sick with Jesus on the earth. Everyone will declare Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing; for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
During the millenium, if someone asks where are the old age nursing homes; saved saints will say there are none because no one gets old with Jesus. Isaiah 65:20 promises that during the millenuim, There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days; for the child shall die 100 years old; but the sinner being 100 years old shall be accursed.
Wow, during the millenium with Jesus, saved saints with glorified bodies will live on this earth with saved and unsaved people in natural bodies. The people in the natural bodies will not age and a hundred year old person will have the strength of a young child, while a hundred year old sinners will be accursed for not accepting Jesus as Lord. It's amazing that when Jesus is King of this earth during the millenium, multitudes of people will reject Jesus and be cast into hell.
Finally, during the millenium, if someone asks a saved saint Where do you go to church; saved saints will say we all go up to Jerusalem to worship the King named Jesus. They will proclaim Isaiah 6:1 I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train (hem of Jesus' robe) filled the temple as a great choir sings All hail the power of Jesus name; let angels prostrate fall; bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.
OK, for our next thought, we see the first picture about Jesus' transfiguration at Mark 9:2 that says And after six days Jesus taketh with Him Peter and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves and He was transfigured before them. And His raiment became shining exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
Notice that Peter was comfortable on the mountain top with Jesus saying it is good for us to be here. But Jesus knew that there was a little boy at the bottom of the mountain that needed deliverance from a dumb and deaf spirit. Jesus rebuked Peter and told Peter to leave his comfort zone and go with Him to save the little boy at the bottom of the mountain.
Like Jesus, Brother Bob tells his friends everywhere, leave your comfort zones and reach out to lost sinners going into all the world to preach the gospel. Saints, Jesus told us all to be fishers of men and win lost souls by telling people all over this earth to confess Jesus as God and believe that Jesus died for them, was buried, and rose again. And remember when anyone goes fishing, you have to go where the fish are to catch the fish. I pray in Jesus name, that we will all leave our comfort zones and go wherever Jesus send us to win lost souls to our Lord Jesus.
As you look at the second picture above, I encourage my friends everywhere to take time to go to church and meditate daily on our Lord Jesus and the Word of God. A study showed that during the lifetime of the average person, they work 9 years, shave their mugs 2 years, eat 4 years, loaf around 20 years, and only go to church and think about Jesus for 1 year. I pray in Jesus name, everyone can change this statistic and devote many hours of their lives to our Lord Jesus. Someone said how much of the world can I enjoy and also have Jesus. Brother Bob says correction; We should say how much Jesus and the Word can I enjoy, while I totally deny this world.
OK, for our final thought today we see pictured above Abraham and Lazarus in peaceful paradise, while the rich man named Dives is tormented in hell. The story about the above picture is found at Luke 16:19 and says There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day; And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table; moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom (paradise); the rich man also died and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments; and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Now think about this; When the rich man died, presidents and many wealthy people attended the rich man's funeral and erected monuments named after the rich man. Several kings probably were the pallbearers that carried the rich man's casket to the grave. But, when Lazarus died, no one attended Lazarus' funeral. But Lazarus had angels as pallbearers that carried him to peace in paradise with Abraham. How comforting to know that like Lazarus, when saved saints leave this world, angels are their pallbearers that carry them to be in peaceful heaven forevermore with our Lord Jesus.
Just a final thought for today:; The outlooks bad and the downlooks worse, but thank God there's the uplook. And if you have the right uplook, you'll have the right outlook and want to win souls to our Lord Jesus all around us on this earth. Be blessed everyone in Jesus name.
As always, it is a blessing to write these bible studies that I pray in Jesus name bless multitudes everywhere. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at email@example.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.
Saturday, October 31, 2015
As promised, time to continue our discussion that Jesus is the truth and the devil is a fake imitator. Pictured above we see that the saved saints are called the new Jerusalem bride of Christ coming down out of heaven to sit upon the chief cornerstone that is the Lord Jesus Christ. Pictured above we see the apostle John's vision of the new Jerusalem bride of Christ at Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Now notice that the devil tries to imitate the new Jerusalem bride church sitting on our Lord Jesus (the chief cornerstone foundation). The devil has a Babylon great whore false apostate church sitting on the antichrist beast. Revelation 17:3 tells us So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness; and I saw a woman (the great whore false apostate church) sit upon a scarlet coloured beast (the antichrist), full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Revelation 17:5 goes on to say And upon her forehead was a name written MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
We see that the devil tries to imitate and be like Jesus. Jesus is the truth and the devil is a liar. Jesus was God in the flesh and Judas was the devil in the flesh. Jesus is the true lion of the tribe of Judah; but the devil is a fake imitating powerless lion. Revelation 5:5 proclaims Jesus to be the true Lion of the tribe of Juda saying And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not; behold the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 1 Peter 5:8 describes the fake imitating devil lion roaring as (fake and not real) a lion (notice the devil is a little l powerless lion and Jesus is a capital L Lion of the tribe of Juda).
You might say Brother Bob how can I protect myself from the devil and his fake imitations? Brother Bob says daily by faith tell the devil I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus that overcomes satan. The other day Jesus showed Brother Bob and his friend Tiffany that the blood of Jesus is the most powerful weapon to daily defeat the devil. Revelation 12:11 says we overcome (defined as conquer victoriously) the devil by the blood of Jesus. In other words, the blood of Jesus totally defeats and puts the final whammy on the devil. The Word of God and the name of God (Jesus) are also powerful weapons to fight against the devil but not as powerful as the blood of Jesus.
The Word of God will make the devil flee but won't overcome the devil like the blood of Jesus. When Jesus quoted the Word to the devil during His temptations in the wilderness, the devil would flee and come back again. The name of Jesus casts out devils (Mark 16:17 In my name (Jesus) shall they cast out devils) but will not overcome and totally defeat the devil like the blood of Jesus. Quote the Word daily and post the name Jesus on your homes and everywhere to make the devil flee; but remember it's the blood of Jesus, the same yesterday, to day, and for ever according to Hebrews 13:8 that will give anyone total victory to conquer and overcome the devil. God showed Brother Bob that the blood of Jesus is a fence around any saint that the devil can not go through.
Simply stated; Jesus Christ, the cross, and the blood of Jesus are the only ways to receive peace in this entire universe. Instead of drugs, alcohol, and fornication when you are stressed; place your stress daily by faith on the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ by saying I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus and watch your problems disappear. Hebrews 2:14 promises that when our problems are placed on the cross, they will be destroyed forevermore. When Jesus died on the cross, Jesus destroyed him that had the power of death, that is the devil and all our problems. And the blood of Jesus is the evidence and proof to the devil that our problems are destroyed forevermore. Right now, worship and thank the Lord Jesus for dying on the cross for sinners and shedding His precious blood that gives us all total victory daily over the devil.
OK back to our discussion about how Jesus is the truth and the devil is a fake imitator. 2 Corinthians 11:14 tells us And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. During the time of Moses, God would create and remove plagues. Satan's magicians also would create the same plagues, but unlike God, satan's magicians could not remove the plagues. Therefore, Pharoah had to constantly ask the God of Moses and not his magicians to remove the plagues.
When Pharoah and the Egyptians did not let Moses and his people go, God plagued Egypt with frogs. Moses told the Pharoah at Exodus 8:2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs. And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs. Wow, Pharoah and the Egyptians had frogs in their beds, ovens, and kneadingtroughs.
After the frogs plagued Pharoah, Pharoah said to Moses at Exodus 8:8 Intreat the Lord, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people, and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the Lord. Then Moses asked the Pharoah at Exodus 8:9 When shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?
Now, notice Pharoah's stupid response to Moses at Exodus 8:10. Pictured above Pharoah told Moses you don't have to immediately remove the frogs; I'll sin one more night with the frogs everywhere in the beds, ovens, and kneading troughs; Moses you can remove the frogs to morrow. Today, many sinners like Pharoah choose to enjoy sin one more night and delay getting saved.
Friend, reading this anywhere, unlike Pharoah, get saved right now today and not to morrow. You might not have time to make a decision to be saved tomorrow. Right now get saved by confessing Jesus as God, believing Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. God says at 2 Corinthians 6:2 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.
Finally, pictured above we see a rich ruler who was a fake counterfeit christian kneeling before Jesus. Mark 10:17 says And when He (Jesus) was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to Him, and asked Him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? The rich ruler looked like a true christian by kneeling before Jesus, as he boasted in his good works, while calling Jesus Good Master. But, he was a phony fake imitation of a christian, not willing to make Jesus God of his life.
This rich ruler told Jesus all his good works by saying I did not commit adultery, I did not kill, I did not steal, I did not bear false witness or defraud, and I honoured my father and mother. Jesus responded at Mark 10:21 One thing thou lackest; go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven (defined as storehouse; note to give to the storehouse according to Jesus we must give our tithes and offerings to the poor); and come take up the cross and follow me. Mark 10:22 says the rich ruler was sad at that saying, and went away grieved; for he had great possessions.
Notice that the rich ruler was not willing to follow Jesus to get saved. All his good works of not killing, not stealing, not committing adultery, calling Jesus Good Master, and kneeling before Jesus could not save him. He looked good, but he refused Jesus which was his only ticket for salvation. This proves that only faith in Jesus as God, believing Jesus died for us on the cross, was buried, and rose again (and not good works) can save anyone. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Titus 3:5 says Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His (Jesus') mercy He (Jesus) saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.
It's a lie for parents to tell their kids, you be a good little child and you'll go to heaven, but if you're a bad little child, you'll go to hell. You don't go to heaven because you're a good little child and you don't go to hell because you're a bad little child. You go to heaven or hell because of what you do with Jesus Christ during this life. If a person accepts Jesus as God, believing Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again, they go to heaven. If a person rejects Jesus as God and does not believe Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again, that person will go to hell.
Note also that repentance is required to be saved. Repentance means to turn from your sins (for most people this is drinking, smoking, and fornication) and live daily with our Lord Jesus by constantly meditating on the Word of God and rejoicing to praise music. 2 Corinthians 7:10 says For godly sorrow worketh repentance to SALVATION not to be repented of; but the sorrow of the world worketh death. The prophet Isaiah had to repent first by saying Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips before he could be saved and say Here am I (Lord) send me.
As always it is a great joy to write these bible studies. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt.

Now why did Jesus cast our sins into the depths of the sea and not on the backside of the moon pictured above? Jesus placed our sins into the depths of the sea because Jesus knew that some bird would build a flying contraption pictured above and discover the backside of the moon. But, man has yet to discover the lowest depths of the sea where are sins are located. Friends everywhere, rejoice because Jesus knew to place our sins into the depths of the sea where they could not be found by any man or remembered any more.
Right now Brother Bob says to all my friends get saved and accept Jesus as your Lord, believing Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Jesus promises saved saints at Hebrews 10:17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. What a blessing to know that the blood of our Lord Jesus will remove our sins forevermore. Revelation 1:5 promises Unto Him (Jesus) that loved us, and washed us form our sins in His own blood. If the devil ever makes you feel guilty for your past sins, say I am crucified with Christ and the blood of Jesus has removed my sins and guilt forevermore. Tell the devil I don't live here anymore; Jesus lives in me and my temple is occupied no vacancy devil and the blood of Jesus has removed my sins forevermore.
OK, notice in the picture above that when America sends a person to the moon, we call that person an astronaut. When Russia sends a person to the moon, we call that person a cosmonaut. But Brother Bob says I don't wanna be an astronaut or cosmonaut, I wanna be a was not like my hero Enoch. Hebrews 11:5 says By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and WAS NOT found, because God had translated him; for before his translation he had this testimony; that he pleased God. Let's all please Jesus like Enoch and become was nots on this earth as we are soon caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds.
OK, for our second revelation notice that before the news reporter David Brinkley stated in 1969 that astronauts on the moon confirmed that the earth was round and circular, the prophet Isaiah recorded in the bible that God knew that the earth was round and circular. Isaiah 40:22 says It is He (the Lord Jesus pictured above) 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.
God knew that the earth was round and a circle thousands of years before Christopher Columbus or any astronaut discovered that the earth was round and a circle. The Lord Jesus said at Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Man has incorrectly stated in the revised slandered version of the bible that a young woman instead of a virgin shall bring forth a son named Emmanuel. The king james version of the bible correctly states at Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
People that defend the revised slandered version of the bible say that Jesus is not God and just a great man and teacher born from an earthly father and young woman named Mary. They say that it is a biological impossibility for Jesus to not have both an earthly father and mother. But, Brother Bob says you tell that so called smart educated doubter that Jesus is the Son of God born of a virgin. Explain to him that Adam thousands of years before Jesus had no earthly father and mother. So Jesus could have a virgin mother and no earthly father because God was His Father. We have a lot of doubters and pouters, but few people are happy shouters like Brother Bob.
OK, time for our third revelation today stated at Isaiah 9:6 about Jesus; For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. When people ask Brother Bob if they should go to a psychiatrist for help, Brother Bob tells them to go to the Wonderful Counsellor named Jesus declared by the prophet Isaiah who will solve all their problems.
The other day I heard about a man that went to a psychiatrist and said doc I think I'm a dog. The psychiatrist said how long has this been going on. The man said ever since I was a puppy. Then another man went to the same psychiatrist and said doc my brother thinks he's a chicken. Can you help him? The psychiatrist said tell him he's not a chicken. The man replied I can't; I need the eggs.
People might say Brother Bob you shouldn't tell jokes on your website. Brother Bob responds by quoting Matthew 6:16 Be not as the hypocrites of a sad countenance. Proverbs 17:22 also says a merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
OK, for our fourth revelation today, we will learn that everything in the creation is groaning and waiting for Jesus to return and take us to heaven. Romans 8:22 says For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves, also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption , to wit, the redemption of our body.
All the animals in nature are groaning for Jesus and saying He's a coming. When a rooster crows, he says He's a coming. When a goose honks, he says He's a coming. When a mule hee haws, he says He's a coming. When crickets rub their legs together, they say He's a coming. And when crows caw, they say He's a coming. Isaiah 55:12 also says For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. You might say preacher you're crazy. Brother Bob says you're reading this website. I'm not reading your website.
Pictured above we see why crows are not harmed by cars on the highway. I've never seen a dead crow on a highway. Whenever a crow sees a car coming on the highway from a telephone pole, that crow signals to all the crows in the area saying CAR, CAR, CAR, CAR.
For our final revelation let's see what happened to Jonah after he walked away from the whale on a beach pictured above. If Jonah met his friend on the beach and that friend said hey Jonah we're having broiled fish tonight for dinner; come by and eat with us. I could see Jonah say phew, no way, you can keep your fish.
Three fellas in the bible had their appetites changed after life changing experiences. After the whale ride, Jonah did not want any more fish. After the rooster crowed, Peter didn't want any more chicken. And after the prodigal son got out of the hog pen, he didn't want any more pork chops.

Today we will learn that Jesus is the truth and that the devil is only a fake imitator. The devil imitates the church with the synagogue of satan. The devil imitates God's ministers with satan's ministers of unrighteousness. The devil imitates Christ with the antichrist. Pictured above we see Jesus as the true second white horse rider from the book of Revelation. Revelation 19:11 says And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True (Jesus); and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.
But earlier in the book of Revelation we see an earlier white horse antichrist rider who is a fake imitator and the strong delusion sent to deceive people left behind on the earth during the great tribulation after the catching up of the saints. Revelation 6:2 describes this first white horse antichrist rider and says And I saw, and behold a white horse; and he that sat on him (the antichrist) had a bow, and a crown was given unto him (by God to be a strong delusion and deceive many because they rejected the truth Jesus as their God); and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
This first antichrist white horse rider has no power with a bow and no arrows and just one dinky crown given to him by God to be a strong delusion that deceives many people. But, the second white horse rider who is Jesus has all power with many crowns and will have victory over the antichrist beast and the false prophet as Jesus casts them both alive into the lake of fire. Revelation 19:12 describes the second white horse rider Jesus and says His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns (not just one dinky crown like the antichrist first white horse rider); and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
So we see that there are two white horse riders in the book of Revelation pictured above. First the antichrist white horse rider at Revelation 6:2 and then the second white horse rider who is Jesus at Revelation 19:11. The first antichrist white horse rider comes from beneath and ascends out of the bottomless pit. This is proven by Revelation 17:8 that says The beast (antichrist) that thou sawest was and is not and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit. Jesus as the second white horse rider comes from above to be the king of this earth for 1000 years. The first antichrist white horse rider comes at the beginning of earth's sorrows as a false promiser of peace and brings war, famine, and pestilence. Jesus as the second white horse rider comes at the end of earth's sorrows and brings peace and prosperity for 1000 years and forevermore
2 Thessalonians 2:7 promises that saved saints will be taken out of the way and caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds forevermore before the Wicked antichrist is revealed as the first white horse rider during the great tribulation. 2 Thessalonians 2:7 promises For the mystery of iniquity doth already work; only he who now letteth (defined as the church holding back the appearance of the antichrist) will let, until he be taken out of the way (saints being caught up to be with Jesus in the clouds) (Then after the saints are caught up) shall that Wicked (antichrist beast) be revealed.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 describes the catching up of the saved saints before the appearance of the first antichrist white horse rider during the great tribulation and says For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel (Michael), and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. Jesus is coming back with a shout and I'm going up with a shout.
Note that the prophet Daniel said that the seven year great tribulation will not begin until the antichrist beast is revealed and confirms a covenant treaty for one week or seven years. Daniel 9:27 says And he (the antichrist) shall confirm the covenant (treaty) with many for one week (the seven year tribulation) . Hallelujah, saved saints will not be on the earth for one second of the great tribulation because the antichrist can not be revealed until after the catching up of the saints to be with our Lord Jesus in the clouds (proven by 2 Thessalonians 2:7 promising that the saved saints will be taken out of the way before the Wicked antichrist is revealed).
I pray in Jesus name my friends everywhere can say along with Brother Bob, I'm gonna be saved on the honeymoon with Jesus caught up in the clouds getting ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb Jesus and not be around for one second of that great tribulation mess. Friends, after saved saints are caught up to be with Jesus, the saved saints will return to earth on white horses along with the second white horse rider Jesus at the end of the great tribulation.
Revelation 19:14 says And the armies which were in heaven (notice that the armies are the caught up saved saints that are in heaven with Jesus and not on the earth during the great tribulation) followed Him (Jesus) upon white horses, clothed in fine linen (note that Revelation 19:8 says the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints), white and clean. Right now get saved friend anywhere and confess Jesus as God, believing that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again and escape the soon coming first antichrist white horse rider and the great tribulation.
Take time to read the following scriptures proving that saved saints will be caught up with Jesus and not be on the earth for one second of the seven year great tribulation wrath and the strong delusion of the antichrist first white horse rider. Revelation 3:10 promises Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee form the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 1 Thessalonians 1:10 says And to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised form the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath (great tribulation) to come.
Note also that Romans 5:9 promises Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath (the great tribulation) through Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 says For God hath not appointed us to wrath (the great tribulation) but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. Finally Luke 21:36 says Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass (the great tribulation), and to stand before the Son of man.
I pray in Jesus name that anyone reading this and all the saints can say I'm looking for the Christ in the clouds and not the antichrist on this earth during the great tribulation. Titus 2:13 tells us to look for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ (who will appear soon at an unknown time called a mystery in the clouds). 1 Corinthians 15:51 promises Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
OK, note that after the saved saints are caught up, then a strong delusion which is the first white horse antichrist rider will be the first thing to appear in the great tribulation to deceive the people left behind on the earth. The first antichrist white horse rider will deceive many people because they did not receive Jesus as their God and did not love and worship Jesus as the truth. Many people will be deceived and think that the first antichrist white horse rider is Jesus because of his dinky crown and not realize that Jesus is the second white horse rider that has many crowns.
2 Thessalonians 2:9 speaks of this and says Even him (the antichrist), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth (Jesus), that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion (the first antichrist white horse rider), that they should believe a lie; That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Notice that the scripture above says people living in the great tribulation might (not will) be damned and have hope to be saved. And some of these people living in the great tribulation will get saved by enduring to the end. This is stated at Matthew 24:13 that says But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Alright, to finish today's bible study, let's compare two scriptures proving that Jesus is the truth and that the devil is a fake imitator. At Revelation 1:8 Jesus said 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 God. So Jesus is, was, and is to come. Jesus is the truth and real and was there when everything started, in fact Jesus started it all; and Jesus is gonna be there when it all ends, He's gonna end it all.
Now let's look at Revelation 17:8 which describes the beast antichrist who is a fake imitator of our Lord Jesus . Revelation 17:8 says The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (defined as be in hell forevermore) and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
Wow, the beast only was, is not, and yet is. This beast antichrist was and is not and is powerless and yet is because he will be tormented forevermore with the devil in the lake of fire. But Jesus is real and the truth who is, was, and is to come. Jesus always existed and will exist forevermore with His saints in peace in the kingdom. Colossians 1:16 speaks about Jesus and says all things were created by Him (Jesus) and for Him, and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.
Also note that there is the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost. The devil again tried to imitate this by creating the devil, the beast, and the false prophet. Jude 11 discusses three people Cain, Korah, and Balaam who went to hell and represent the devil, the beast, and the false prophet. It is recorded that Korah went to the pit (hell) alive after the earth opened up and swallowed him because he rebelled against Moses. Jude 11 says Cain and Balaam are also with Korah in hell.
OK, we see the devil, beast, and false prophet in Cain who is a murderer of Abel representing the devil, Korah as a beast or false leader of a rebellious people, and finally Balaam as a false prophet who after he first blessed God's people caused the children of Israel to stumble by committing fornication. This is proven by Revelation 2:14 that says But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there 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.
Wow, Balaam is the Judas Iscariot of the old testament who was like Judas and for money was willing to teach King Balac to send beautiful Midianitish women to the children of Israel to commit fornication and curse God's people. Both Judas Isacariot and Balaam are in hell forevermore because they loved money and this world more than our Lord Jesus. Jesus condemned Judas to hell at John 17:12 saying While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name; those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition (defined as Judas Iscariot who is placed in hell forevermore by Jesus), that the scripture might be fulfilled.
Stay tuned for another bible study about Jesus is the truth and the devil is a fake imitator soon to come. As always it is a blessing to share these revelations with my friends everywhere about our Lord Jesus.
