Today, as we look at the picture above, Brother Bob asks all my friends everywhere are you building your house upon the Rock who is the Lord Jesus? The monks in the monastery pictured above literally built their house on a Rock with access only by an aerial tramway. Friend reading this anywhere, Jesus is the only foundation Rock that standeth sure that will not fall. If you've tried everything else in life, why not try Jesus today? I guarantee you that Jesus will deliver your life from all the troubles of this world. Right now get saved and confess everywhere that Jesus is God and believe that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Take time to study the following bible scriptures below that prove that Jesus is the Rock and only foundation that won't fall and bless your lives with everlasting peace.
1 Corinthains 10:4 proclaims And that Rock was Christ. If we trust daily for Jesus to be our Rock and foundation, we will not fall and the gates of hell will not prevail against us. Jesus promised this at Matthew 7:24 that says Therefore, whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house upon a Rock (Jesus); And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell not for it was founded upon a Rock (Jesus). Also Jesus said at Matthew 16:18 And I say unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this Rock (Jesus) I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
King David asked a question at Psalm 3:11 saying If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? Be encouraged friends no one will ever destroy the foundation for all saints who is our Lord Jesus. This is proven by the following scriptures. 1 Corinthians 3:11 tells us Jesus is the foundation and says For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:20 also states that Jesus Christ is the chief corner or foundation stone. Finally, 2 Timothy 2:19 says Nevertheless the foundation of God (Jesus) standeth sure (defined as immovable that no one can destroy) having this seal. The Lord knoweth them that are His. And let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
Note also that the prophet Isaiah proclaimed our Lord Jesus to be an everlasting Rock or the Rock of Ages. Brother Bob always wanted to know where in the bible it says that Jesus was the everlasting Rock of Ages to all generations because I've always loved the hymn Rock of Ages. Jesus showed Brother Bob that Rock of Ages appears in the bible at Isaiah 26:4 that says Trust in the Lord forever; For in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting strength (note that the word strength in hebrew is defined as Rock). Our English bibles say the Lord Jesus is everlasting strength. But the correct hebrew wording for Isaiah 26:4 is the Lord JEHOVAH (Jesus) is an everlasting Rock or Rock of Ages. Jesus truly is our Rock of Ages.
Take time to left click the following link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y66kqE7nDw8 to watch a blessed video of children from Australia singing Rock of Ages. I pray in Jesus name that as anyone watches this video that peace, strength, and joy will fill every area of their lives. Take time to read the blessed words below of the hymn Rock of Ages about our Lord Jesus.
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in thee, Let the water and the blood from thy wounded side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure, Save from wrath and make me pure; Not the labor of my hands can fulfill thy laws demands, Could my zeal no respite know, Could my tears forever flow, All for sin could not atone, Thou must save and thou alone;
Nothing in my hand I bring, Simply to the cross I cling, Naked, come to thee for dress, Helpless look to thee for grace, Foul, I to the fountain fly, Wash me, Saviour,or I die, While I draw this fleeting breath, When mine eyes shall close in death, When I soar to worlds unknown, See thee on thy judgment throne; Rock of Ages, Cleft for me, Let me hide myself in thee.
For our next anointed revelation, pictured above we see that only the Lord Jesus changes not and is the same yesterday, to day, and for ever. Stay with the Lord Jesus who changes not and meddle not with them given to change. Malachi 3:6 says For I am the Lord, I change not, therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Finally Psalm 119:89 says For ever O Lord, thy Word is settled in heaven.
The bible tells us to ask for the old paths and Ancient of Day Jesus that does not change and tells us not to meddle with them that are given to change. Jeremiah 6:16 says Thus saith the Lord, stand ye in the ways and see and ask for the old paths where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls; But they said we will not walk therein. Proverbs 24:21 says My son fear thou the Lord and the King, and meddle not with them that are given to change. Finally, Jeremiah 2:36 says Why gaddest (defined as roamed) thou about so much to change thy way?
Brother Bob says if it's new it's not true and if it's true it's not new. I encourage all my friends to read KJV bibles and not new translated NIV (new idiot versions that deny the diety or Lordship of Jesus Christ). Truly the best version of a bible to read is the actual hebrew translation of the old testament and the actual greek translation of the new testament. You can find hebrew and greek translations of every word of the bible at the website blueletterbible where you can type in any word in the bible and click a Strong's number by the word to see the hebrew or greek translation of that word.
For our final anointed revelation pictured above let's all say the words of Jesus at Revelation 1:18 I am He that liveth, and was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Some people say that sinners send themselves to hell. This is incorrect because if a sinner could find hell, that sinner couldn't get into hell because Jesus has the keys to hell. Jesus as the Judge decides where we go when we leave this earth. Matthew 10:28 warns us And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him (Jesus) which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Now friend reading this, remember that repentance is important to avoid going to hell. Repentance is defined as not doing the sins of your past life before you knew the Lord Jesus. For most people this is to stop doing drugs, alcohol, and sexual immorality. Jesus warned us at Luke 13:3 Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Also, The rich man Dives in hell told Abraham to send Lazarus to his five brothers so they could repent and avoid hell. We must repent to avoid hell. The rich man Dives in hell said at Luke 16:30 Nay, Father Abraham but if one went unto them (his five brothers) from the dead, they will repent. Dives said repentance will keep anyone out of hell.
Now don't feel guilty if you sin friend because the blood of Jesus will cleanse you daily from all sin. But, don't continue in sin. Try daily to stop sinning for the wages of sin is death according to Romans 6:23. Romans 6:1 says Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound. God forbid. How shall we that are dead to sin live any longer therein. Crucify your sinful nature daily by saying Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ and say daily devil I am covered by the blood of the Lamb Jesus that overcame you and as in the days of Egypt all evil must pass over me.
As always it is a blessing to write these bible studies that I pray in Jesus name bless multitudes of people everywhere with great peace.
