Today, Brother Bob will share many holy biblical truths shown to him by our Lord Jesus. The other day Jesus told Brother Bob to go to a farm and watch baby lambs pictured above eat hay for an hour. The baby lambs were focused on the hay and would not look at Brother Bob or let me pet or hold them. Brother Bob told Jesus that this was boring and did not know why God would have him watch sheep eat hay for an hour.
But the next day, Brother Bob heard a preacher speak about why sheep and lambs eat hay quickly whole without chewing. The preacher said that after the sheep eat a lot of hay, they lay down in a field, and then start chewing on the hay before they swallow the hay. Chipmunks also do this; chipmunks gather a lot of food in their jaws and then relax and lay down while they chew on the food. Jesus told Brother Bob we need to be like these sheep and chipmunks when we as saints daily meditate on the Word of God.
Brother Bob learned that like the sheep and chipmunks, listen daily to preaching and fill your Spirit with the Word of God as you jot down notes when you hear a blessed truth. Just continuously listen and feed your Spirit daily with blessed preaching from the Word of God. Some blessed preachers to listen to are Billy Mitchell, Billy Kelly, and BR Lakin. Listen to preaching while you cook, clean your house, and do chores. When the Word goes through your house, the devil will flee from your presence. When Jesus spoke the Word saying it is written to the devil, Matthew 4:11 says then the devil leaveth Him, and behold angels came and ministered unto Him. Like Jesus, when we listen daily to the Word of God in our homes, the devil will leave us and angels will minister strength unto us.
If you can't remember everything preached that day from the Word of God, like the sheep and chipmunks, later another day when you relax, meditate, and chew on the Word of God, Jesus will have you remember what was preached days before and strengthen you. Just constantly keep listening to blessed preaching of the Word of God. Hebrews 2:1 tells us Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
Also, notice that the baby lambs pictured above are focused on the hay as they eat. We as saints, like the baby lambs need to stay focused on the Word of God daily. Psalm 1 promises that if we meditate day and night on the Word of God, whatsoever we do will prosper. Psalm 1:2 promises But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Friends everywhere, God's Word is the truth; if anyone meditates and memorizes the Word of God daily like sheep and chipmunks daily chewing on their food, the Lord Jesus will fix and heal every problem in that person's life.
OK, for our next holy biblical truth, notice the blessed sign pictured above saying east west. Psalm 103:12 says As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Billy Kelly preached why Jesus did not remove our sins as far as the north is from the south. Jesus did not remove our sins as far as the north is from the south because the devil could find our sins at the North and South Pole. But, there is no beginning and ending or start and finish to the east and west. Neighbor anywhere, when Jesus removes your sin by His blood as far as the east is from the west, no devil or anyone could ever find your sins again. Hallelujah, they're gone forevermore friend and Jesus will never remember your past sins.
One day the devil tried to find our sins and started walking east and when he got to the west he discovered that he was still walking east and could not find our sins. So the devil thought OK I'll start walking west to find their sins and when he got to the east he discovered that he was still walking west and could not find our sins. Hallelujah, Jesus has removed our sins as far as the east is from the west and the devil can't find our past sins because there is no beginning and ending or start and finish to the east and west.
OK, for our next holy biblical truth, we see pictured above a hammer, chisel, and rock. This reminds Brother Bob of what heathens in the jungles of Africa use to make idols for worship. A primitive heathen in the jungle will whittle a piece of wood or chisel a rock with a hammer to make an idol to be worshipped. These heathen need to learn that only Jesus as God must be worshipped. Heathens will quickly learn that Jesus as God made the wood, the rock, the hammer, the chisel, and that God also made the chiseler.
Colossians 1:16 says For by Him (Jesus) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible; whether they be thrones or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by Him, and for Him; And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. Friends everywhere, unlike a heathen that worships a rock or piece of wood as an idol, get saved today and confess Jesus as God everywhere, believing in your hearts that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Heathens that worship idols have no excuse for not believing Jesus is God because Romans 1:20 says For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and God-head; so that they are without excuse.
Alright, let's learn the three times God wrote something with his finger. First, God wrote with his finger the ten commandments when He met Moses on top of mount Sinai. This was the law. Next, pictured above God wrote on the plaister by the candlestick at King Belshazzar's party Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. This was God's judgment upon King Belshazzar who died after he placed wine in the holy vessels of God.
Unlike Belshazzar, we must respect and reverence the holy things of God. When King Belshazzar took wine and placed it in the holy vessels of the temple, it was like taking a church piano to a bar to play sinful songs. Numbers 32:23 says Be sure your sin will find you out. Romans 6:23 says For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Belshazzar died because he did not respect or reverence the holy vessels of God. Unlike Belshazzar, stop sinning and reverence the holy things of God to avoid death and receive eternal life.
But, the final time God wrote something with His finger was when the Lord Jesus wrote something on the ground, causing the accusers of a woman taken in adultery to walk away. Brother Bob believes Jesus wrote with his finger on the ground amazing grace how sweet the sound. This is because Jesus said before he wrote on the ground at John 8:7 He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Then John 8:9 says And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last; and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up Himself and saw none but the woman, He said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more.
Notice, that Jesus said he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone. And when Jesus was the only one left standing with the woman taken in adultery, Jesus could have stoned her because Jesus had no sin. But Jesus showed mercy to the woman saying neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more. Hebrews 4:15 proves that Jesus was perfect with no sin who could have stoned this woman; but Jesus showed mercy and set her free. The scripture says For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Friends reading this anywhere, Jesus says to you like the woman taken in adultery, neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more. Get saved today and confess Jesus as your Lord, believing Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. 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.
Pictured above let's learn about our final holy biblical truth today about how the disciples were determined to bring Jesus in a boat over a stormy lake to a lost sinner needing salvation at Gadarenes. Luke 8 says that this sinner of Gadarenes lived in tombs, had devils a long time, ware no clothes, broke chains and fetters, and ran many times into the wilderness.
But, one day this sinner noticed that a storm on the lake by his house in the tombs became peaceful and calm. This sinner prayed that whoever made the storm calm as he heard someone say Peace be still could visit his home in Gadarenes. Notice that the disciples had to carry Jesus in a boat over a stormy lake to the sinner who needed to be saved at Gadarenes. Friends everywhere, we as saints are like these disciples and must carry Jesus over this troubled world to save lost sinners everywhere around this earth. Jesus commanded us at Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
The disciples pictured above successfully carried Jesus to the sinner at Gadarenes. Friends, like these disciples know that Jesus in us is greater than any trouble around us and keep sending the message of Jesus to lost sinners for salvation as you are delivered from all your troubles. 2 Corinthians 4:8 says We are troubled on every side; yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
Jesus saved this lost sinner of Gadarenes and cast out legion devils into swine who ran violently down a steep place into a lake, and were choked. Luke 8:35 says the sinner of Gadarenes out of whom the devils were departed was sitting at the feet of Jesus clothed and in his right mind. This crazy nut got saved, put on clothes, and became like Brother Bob; publishing and writing books about the great things Jesus had done unto him. I pray in Jesus name soon in heaven we all will have the honor to read these blessed writings from the sinner of Gadarenes about how Jesus delivered him from the legion devils and how he proclaimed Jesus to the world.
As always it is a blessing to write these bible studies that I pray in Jesus name bless multitudes.

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

Today we will learn about a blessed mother who packed a lunch of two small fishes and five loaves of bread that her little boy pictured above gave to the Lord Jesus to feed five thousand people. A miracle happened as the Lord Jesus fed the five thousand people with the two fishes and five loaves of bread. And after all the people were filled by the food, twelve baskets holding fragments of the fish and bread were gathered. This proves friends that the Lord Jesus not only supplies our needs; but the Lord Jesus will give us exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think. Rejoice and say Ephesians 3:20 Now unto Him (Jesus) that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us.
The story of the above picture where God used a little lad with two fishes and fives loaves of bread to feed five thousand people is found at John 6:5. The scripture says When Jesus then lifted up His eyes, and saw a great company come unto Him, He saith unto Phillip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? And this He said to prove him; for He Himself knew what He would do. Phillip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them; that every one of them may take a little.
John 6:8 goes on to say One of His disciples Andrew Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him. There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes; but what are they among so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place; So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when He had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, He said unto His disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Notice that Jesus asked a little boy with two fishes and five loaves of bread to share his lunch to feed five thousand people. This little boy learned from his mama not to be selfish and shared his packed lunch with Jesus to feed five thousand. If this little boy's mama didn't pack his lunch of two fishes and five loaves of bread, Jesus would not have performed any miracle to feed the multitude. Sisters everywhere, remember that the greatest job you could do in this life is be a good mother to your kids. Deborah said that when she arose a mother (not a prophetess, leader, or politician) and fought with Barak against the enemy for her kids, they could safely inhabit villages at Judges 5:7.
OK, let's learn how the little lad's mom was important by packing a lunch of fishes and bread for her child to give to Jesus to feed five thousand. Pictured above, the little boy's mom caught and cleaned the fish that she put in the little boy's lunch. If mama didn't catch and clean the fish, the little boy would have nothing to give to Jesus to feed five thousand people. We should all praise unnoticed godly mothers who train their children to bless everyone.
Friends, I pray in Jesus name we can be like this blessed mother by doing things behind the scenes to bless multitudes of people. Mama also placed bread (representing the Word of God Jesus) in the little boy's lunch bag. Instead of placing an ungodly music CD in the kid's lunch bag, mama told the little boy to share the bread or Word of God with his friends.
Pictured above, I believe the little boys mama wanted to bless all people of all races and backgrounds. This mother taught her little boy to bless the poor and always share food, clothing, and money with everyone. She taught her son James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
This little boy remembered mama's teachings and was not selfish, but was willing to give away all of his lunch (all of the two fishes and five loaves of bread) to the Lord Jesus to feed five thousand people. The little boys mama knew the importance of training her child daily about the Word of God and our Lord Jesus. This mother daily trained her child to live for Jesus because she knew that Proverbs 29:15 says a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. This little boys mama also believed Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
This little boys mother did not allow her son to be around a cigarette sucking baby sitter that watches TV all day. Mama daily surrounded this boy with praise music and the Word of God. Mama did not want her child to see the evil shown on TV. Too many kids today are left by parents who work all day to sit by a TV watching wicked shows for hours. Mamas reading this everywhere, instead of TV, program a computer for your kids to hear music and the preaching about our Lord Jesus. Let's all obey Psalm 101:3 saying for us and our children; I will set no wicked thing (evil scenes on TV) before mine eyes: Instead, let's all agree with King David and say Psalm 16:8 I have set the Lord (the Word of God) always before me.
OK, people reading this everywhere, remember that our children are important and that it was a little boy that blessed Jesus and five thousand people with food. Parents everywhere, train your children to be a blessing and help the poor and needy widows and orphans everywhere. Pictured above, we see what prevents most kids from serving the Lord Jesus. Today, most kids spend more time on cellphones and facebook than with the Lord Jesus and the Word of God.
I pray in Jesus name that the kids today can be like the little boy that shared his fish and bread with our Lord Jesus instead of wasting time on cellphones and facebook. Pastors, train up children to be singers and preachers in your churches. Children when you go to church turn off your cellphones and facebook and allow Jesus to have you bless multitudes like the little boy that shared his lunch with Jesus and five thousand people.
One other note about how Jesus fed the multitude with two fishes and five loaves of bread. Notice that a humble disciple named Andrew told Jesus that the little boy had the two fishes and five loaves of bread. Andrew, like the little boy's mama, was also blessing people behind the scenes.
We always hear about Peter, James, and John. But Andrew who is humble and often goes unnoticed is one of Brother Bob's favorite disciples. Andrew led Peter to Jesus and because Peter got saved, Peter preached and was able to save 3000 sinners that had crucified Jesus. If Andrew didn't save Peter, 3000 sinners would not have been saved by Peter. If Andrew didn't tell Jesus about a little boy with two fishes and five loaves of bread, 5000 people would have gone hungry. I pray in Jesus name, we can all be like Andrew and lead multitudes to accept Jesus as their Lord, believing that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again.
OK, to end up today's lesson, Brother Bob asks where did Jesus and His disciples give the twelve baskets of fragments of fish and bread pictured above after the multitude was filled with food? I believe Jesus gave the twelve baskets of fragments of food to the little boy and told the twelve disciples to help the little boy carry the blessed food home to mama. I could see this little boy testifying to mama that because she packed his lunch and trained him to help the poor, Jesus fed five thousand with her packed lunch. Then the little boy would say mama Jesus wanted to thank you for the lunch by creating twelve baskets of extra food to feed you many days, as the all the disciples and the little boy rejoiced.
I pray in Jesus name these bible studies greatly bless all my friends 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. Until we all meet again soon to lift up our Lord Jesus, everyone have a blessed day.

Many animals in the bible were obedient servants that were willing to be a blessing for our Lord Jesus. The rooster crowed on time to warn Peter of his third denial of the Lord Jesus. The donkey spoke on time to warn Balaam about an angel with a sword before him. A fish was willing to give money to Peter and Jesus to pay their taxes. A camel was willing to take Rebekah on a journey to meet her husband Isaac. The ravens were willing to take bread and flesh to Elijah for food in a famine. A worm was willing to smite and wither a gourd above Jonah to teach Jonah that God is more concerned about lost souls in Nineveh that repent than a worthless gourd giving shade. But, pictured above, this study will discuss the whale that swallowed Jonah who was Brother Bob's favorite animal servant.
God prepared the happy whale pictured above who was willing to launch out into the deep, catch, and save a backslid preacher named Jonah. Jonah 1:17 tells us Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Matthew 12:40 tells us that a whale swallowed Jonah saying For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Friends, we all need to be like this whale, willing to save lost sinners like Jonah and follow Jesus as fishers of men. Jesus told us at Matthew 4:19 Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Notice that God prepared the whale to be available to swallow Jonah at the exact time when Jonah was thrown overboard from a ship. The whale was willing to be a faithful witness and be at the right place at the right time to save Jonah. This whale was truly a whale of a servant. I pray in Jesus name, that we all can be like this whale and say Lord Jesus I'm willing to launch out into the deep and go any place you request to win lost sinners to the Lord Jesus.
Like Isaiah who repented after a seraphim touched his unclean lips with a live coal, let's all say Here am I Lord, send me wherever you want to win lost sinners to our Lord Jesus. Isaiah 6:8 says Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send; and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I, send me. Friends, lets all be like the whale and Isaiah and obey Jesus' command at Luke 14:23 and Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in that my house may be filled (going everywhere to win lost souls to our Lord Jesus). Just witness everywhere at walmarts, cracker barrels, and laundramats asking people How do you get to heaven? Then tell them to confess Jesus as God and believe Jesus died for them, was buried, and rose again to save their souls. He that winneth souls is wise.
Now think about this: If the whale pictured above did not allow God to prepare him as a servant and refused to swallow Jonah who was thrown overboard; the 120000 lost sinners living in Nineveh would not have been saved because Jonah would have died and not been able to warn the sinners of Nineveh to repent. The people of Nineveh were blessed and repented at Jonah's sermon of only 8 words at Jonah 3:4 Yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown. If these Ninevites could repent at an 8 word sermon from Jonah, we should all repent because we have the many scriptures and the Word Jesus to guide us daily.
Take time to read what the bible says these people of Nineveh will say in the time of judgment to our generation that has Jesus and the Word as our preacher instead of Jonah. Matthew 12:41 says The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; because they repented at the preaching of Jonas (only 8 words), and behold a greater than Jonas (Jesus) is here. Right now, friend anywhere, like the people of Nineveh repent and get saved, confessing Jesus as God, believing Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again.
Jonah did not like the Ninevites and went to the east of Nineveh to sit in a booth and wait for forty days, hoping that the Ninevites who were his enemies would be destroyed. But God blessed the people of Nineveh for repenting and did not destroy them. The Lord Jesus rebuked Jonah who was more concerned about a worthless gourd giving him shade than the lost sinners of Nineveh. Friends, Brother Bob says don't be like Jonah; instead, rejoice when your enemies get saved and confess Jesus as their Lord, believing Jesus died for them on the cross, was buried, and rose again.
OK, let's talk again about the whale who was one of the greatest servants for our Lord Jesus in the bible. Pictured above we see a whale named Moby. But the whale that swallowed Jonah had no name; Moby didn't swallow Jonah. The whale that swallowed Jonah was humble and had no name so people could see the Lord Jesus and not the whale.
The bible tells us to be like this unnamed whale and say Psalm 115:1 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us; but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake. Like this unnamed whale we should all only exalt the Lord Jesus and not ourselves. Let's say with John the Baptist at John 3:30 He (Jesus) must increase; but I must decrease. The disciple John also was unnamed, willing to only be called the disciple whom Jesus loved. Right now friends, like Brother Bob, the whale, and John, let's become unnamed and allow people to see the light Jesus in us.
If the light Jesus shines in us as unnamed saints, people will glorify the Father and Jesus in heaven. Matthew 5:16 says Let your light (Jesus) shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. And note that when we become unnamed like the whale and only lift up the Lord Jesus, people from all parts of this earth will come together as one and get saved. Jesus said at John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
OK, notice also that the whale in the picture above that swallowed Jonah was willing to be alone with God in the deep to be trained as a faithful servant that would save Jonah and the people of Nineveh. Friends, like the whale make time to get alone with the Lord Jesus early in the morning. God said at Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Take five minutes every morning to thank Jesus for dying on the cross for you and tell the devil daily I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus that has overcome the devil, cleansed me from all my sin, and caused evil to pass over me.
Moses like the whale was willing to be trained on the backside of the desert at a burning bush about leading the children of Israel out of Egypt. John the Baptist was willing to be trained in the wilderness to know how to baptize our Lord Jesus Christ and proclaim Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world.
The apostle Paul also was willing to be alone with the Lord Jesus and trained for three years on the backside of the desert of Arabia before he preached before Peter, James, and the heathen.Remember like Moses, John the Baptist, Paul, and the whale, we as saints are just branches and we need to take time alone with the vine Jesus to be effective witnesses for our Lord Jesus. As branches without the vine Jesus, we as saints can do nothing.
Take time to read Galatians 1:15 about Paul's ministry; But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by His grace. To reveal His Son in me; that I might preach Him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood; Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia (the desert alone with the Lord Jesus), and returned again unto Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother.
OK, one final remark about the whale that swallowed Jonah who was Brother Bob's favorite animal servant in the bible. This whale like the one pictured above had to leave his world and surface to take a breath from God outside of this world. Like this whale, to be effective servants and witnesses for our Lord Jesus we must deny this world and live daily for our Lord Jesus. James 4:4 says Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
1 John 2:15 says Love not he world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Like whales, saints must leave this troubled world and take a breath of life from our Lord Jesus by meditatiing daily on the Word of God. People have told Brother Bob, I can't talk to people about Jesus and God. Brother Bob says if most people can talk about the weather, politics, and the football games to everyone, you should be able to talk about the Lord Jesus to everyone. Let's all be like this blessed whale of a servant that swallowed Jonah and deny this world and become effective witnesses for our Lord Jesus.
I pray in Jesus name that this bible study blesses many people everywhere. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org 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, September 5, 2015
Today we will see what happens to sinners when they see the Lord Jesus. Pictured above, we see what happened to the prophet Isaiah when he saw the Lord Jesus sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up as His train filled the temple. Isaiah said Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
Neighbor, like Isaiah, daily see the Lord Jesus crucified high and lifted up, get saved, and repent saying Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips as you confess Jesus as your Lord, believing Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. Repentance is defined as turning from your sin to live daily with the Lord Jesus and is required to be saved. 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.
When Isaiah went to the temple, he didn't go to see the pastor, evangelist, or the building; Isaiah came to see the Lord Jesus high and lifted up. John 6:40 promises that if we like Isaiah choose to see the Lord Jesus daily we will have everlasting life and be raised up at the last day. John 6:40 says And this is the will of Him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Like Isaiah, when we as sinners see the Lord Jesus daily, we should say woe is me, for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips. This will help us remember that we are nothing without the Lord Jesus. Saints are just branches that daily need the vine Jesus to live and survive. Jesus said at John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch can not bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine. No more can ye; except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches; He that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing. Right now, like Isaiah, deny your sinful flesh and live daily for the Lord Jesus and proclaim joyfully Philippians 4:19 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Pictured above, we see what happened to Job when he saw the Lord Jesus. Job told the Lord Jesus at Job 42:5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now mine eye seeth thee. Wherefore I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes. Like Job, when we see the Lord Jesus, we'll abhor our sinful flesh and not be ashamed to kneel at an old fashioned altar and repent in dust and ashes.
Neighbor, today you need to repent and deny your sins by confessing Jesus as your Lord, believing Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and rose again. If you don't get rid of sin, sin will get rid of you. Numbers 32:23 says Be sure your sin will find you out. It's wrong to say I haven't sinned because I aint done anything. It's a sin to do nothing because James 4:17 says Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. Friend reading this today, repent and do something today for Jesus like Brother Bob on this internet by winning souls to the Lord Jesus.
Now Brother Bob will explain how saints are not like sinners. Saints might sin but they don't like to sin. Sinners practice sin and like to sin. If a church member gets mad when you preach against sin, he's a sinner that likes to sin and needs to repent. But, a saint will enjoy when a preacher speaks against sin because saints don't like to sin. But, saints like sinners also might sin and need to repent. The problem today is that sinners don't see saints repenting of their sins in the church. If the saints start daily repenting of their sins, sinners will notice their repentance, get saved, and also repent of their sins.
After people read this, they might say Brother Bob I accuse you of preaching perfection because no one can live perfect. Brother Bob pleads guilty and says join the crowd; I can't live perfect either. But God told me to preach holiness and perfection. 1 Corinthians 15:34 says Awake to righteousness and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God; I speak this to your shame.1 John 2:1 also says My little children these things I write unto you that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
And just a note that Psalm 14:1 says the fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. People that deny the Lord Jesus and believe in evolution don't have enough sense to know that God made everything. These fools didn't evolute; they devoluted. John 1:3 says All things were made by Him (Jesus), and without Him was not any thing made that was made. Colossians 1:16 also says For by Him (Jesus) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones or dominions, or principalities, or powers; all things were created by Him, and for Him. And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.
OK, pictured above let's see what happened to the prophet Daniel when he saw the Lord Jesus. Daniel saw the Lord Jesus' body like beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude. After Daniel saw this vision of the Lord Jesus, Daniel said at Daniel 10:8 Therefore, I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me; for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption; and I retained no strength.
Like Daniel, when we see the Lord Jesus, we also will admit that we have a corrupt sinful nature that needs the blood of Jesus to cleanse and remove our sins. Ephesians 2:3 says that we were by nature the children of wrath. People don't become sinners; they're born as sinners. But the next verse at Ephesians 2:4 is good news that Brother Bob tells all my friends to say out loud now. Say But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us. Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, by grace ye are saved; And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
Take time to meditate also on Titus 3:3 that says For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared. Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost. Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Alright, let's see what happened to the prophet Habakkuk pictured above when he saw the Lord Jesus. Habakkuk 3:16 says that when Habakkuk saw the Lord Jesus, his belly trembled, his lips quivered at God's voice, rottenness entered into his bones, and he trembled within himself.
Also, pictured above we see that Saul like Habakkuk also trembled and was astonished when he saw the Lord Jesus. When Saul saw the Lord Jesus, Saul said at Acts 9:5 Who art thou Lord? And the Lord said I am Jesus whom thou persecutest; it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
After Saul the sinner saw the Lord Jesus, Saul was three days without sight and went to straight street. Like Saul, when sinners repent, God sends them to straight street. God doesn't send anyone to crooked street to get saved. This is because Matthew 7:14 says Strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The strait gate is on straight street. You can't get in the strait gate on crooked street. Pictured above Ananias obeyed Jesus request at Acts 9:11 and arose and went into a street called Straight and enquired in the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus who was praying. And after Ananias prayed for Saul, Saul became Paul and received his sight.
Like Paul, after we daily see the Lord Jesus, we will say Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. We'll also say 1 Timothy 1:15 Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. Like Paul, after God shines the light of conviction on us and we see ourselves as wretched sinners, we'll all agree with Romans 7:18 and say For I know that in me that is in my flesh dwelleth no good thing. We'll proclaim Luke 18:19 none is good, save one, that is, God.
Finally, pictured above we see what happened to Peter when he saw the Lord Jesus. Peter told the Lord Jesus at Luke 5:8 Depart from me ; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. Peter acknowledged that he was a sinful man and repented before the Lord Jesus.
Like Peter, friend reading this, repent daily of your sins by looking to Jesus and deny your flesh. After Peter cussed and denied Jesus three times with an oath, Jesus forgave Peter after Peter repented. The Lord Jesus had a rooster say er,er,er,er,er twice after Peter's third denial with a curse about knowing Jesus. After Peter the chicken preacher was face to face with the preachin' chicken, Peter repented and Jesus forgave him.
Peter was a sinner who was a sabbath keeping, pork abstaining, synagogue going, circumcised Jew that didn't have anything to do with Gentiiles. But, Peter was blessed and repented by obeying God's command to visit the gentile Cornelius' house and rejoice that the gift of the Holy Ghost was received by a gentile roman centurion named Cornelius. Friends, let's be like Peter and repent of our sinful traditions and live daily for the Lord Jesus.
