Some More Blessed Biblical Rhymes


     Friends, today it's time to share some more blessed biblical rhymes. Pictured above we see that Joshua met the captain general of the host of angels named the Lord Jesus promising victory over the enemy at Jericho. Hebrews 2:10 proclaims that Jesus was the captain that Joshua met saying For it became Him (Jesus) for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

     The bible speaks about the above picture at Joshua 5:13 saying And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand; and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? (Note that the Lord Jesus as the captain told Joshua son I didn't come to take sides, I came to take over causing Joshua to worship Jesus as God). (Now look at Jesus' response to Joshua at Joshua 5:14) Nay; but as captain (defined as general of the army angels of God) of the host (defined as angels) of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto Him, What saith my Lord unto his servant? (Note again that Jesus as the God man appeared to Joshua because Joshua first saw the captain Jesus as a man but later proclaimed that this captain was the Lord Jesus, as Joshua worshipped Jesus as God).

     Now note the three things Joshua was facing as he prepared to fight the enemy surrounded by the high walls of Jericho. Joshua was facing a heritage to be received (the promised land), a hindrance to be removed (the enemy behind the high walls of Jericho), and finally a helper to be recognized (the Lord Jesus as the captain of the army of angels who would remove the walls of Jericho and destroy the enemies in Jericho).

     Like Joshua, we as saints also have a heritage to be received, a hindrance to be removed, and a helper to be recognized. I pray in Jesus my friends everywhere can remember their helper to be recognized who is the Lord Jesus (the unseen captain) that will overcome any obstacle in their paths. Friends today realize that Jesus and the blood of Jesus will overcome any obstacle in your path. Revelation 12:11 proclaims that the blood of Jesus has overcome the devil causing evil to pass over you. Tell the devil daily I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus that has defeated you devil. Get saved today and confess Jesus as your God over your life and believe that Jesus died for you, was buried, and rose again. Repent and turn from your sins today and live for Jesus now.

     Instead of groaning about your adversaries like Joshua, let us all glory in our allies who are Jesus and his mighty army of angels that will always give victory to all saints. 2 Corinthians 2:14 promises Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Chirst, and maketh manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place. Also, 1 Corinthians 15:57 promises But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


     Another example pictured above in the bible where there was a heritage to be received, a hindrance to be removed, and a helper to be recognized occurred when Elisha's servant Gehazi recognized that the angels in chariots of fire were more in number than the Syrian enemies. The story in 2 Kings 6 tells us that Elisha had a hotline to heaven and knew all the plans of the king of Syria. When the King of Syria learned about Elisha, he said I've got to silence that little prophet and send an army to find Elisha and his servant Gehazi.

     Then one morning, when Elisha's servant Gehazi looked out of his window, he saw soldiers to the right of him, soldiers to the left of him, here a soldier, there a soldier, and everywhere a soldier. Gehazi ran to Elisha and said we're surrounded by the Syrian army that is coming to get us. Gehazi forgot about his heritage to be received and began looking at his hindrance to be removed. But Elisha was looking at the helper to be recognized (the Lord Jesus and his chariots with His host of angels that outnumbered the Syrian enemies). Psalm 68:17 proclaims the chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels; the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

      Elisha responded to Gehazi at 2 Kings 6:16 Fear not; for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. Then after Elisha prayed for Gehazi saying Lord, I pray thee open his eyes, that he may see, Gehazi looked and saw angels to the right of him, angels to the left of him, here an angel, there an angel, everywhere an angel because the angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. Also Gehazi remembered Psalm 91:11 that says For He (Jesus) 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.

     Lord Jesus let everyone reading this remember that their helper to be recognized (the Lord Jesus and His angels) is greater than any hindrance to be removed as we all travel to our heritage to be received. Every day let's all pray that Jesus will send his angels around us to bind the devil and send all evil spirits to the pit of hell. Psalm 140:10 promises that when evil spirits are sent by faith through angels to deep pits, they will not rise up again.

     Alright, for our next blessed biblical rhyme today let's look at the above picture of the prophet Amos telling King Jeroboam and his false priest Amaziah that it was wrong for them to worship golden calves in Bethel and Dan and not allow the people to travel to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. Jeroboam was the king over northern Israel and wanted to control his people by offering worship at Bethel and Dan in northern Israel, instead of where God required worship which was in southern Israel at Jerusalem ruled by King Rehoboam.

     Open your bibles to Amos 7:10 and read how the false priest Amaziah spoke against the prophet Amos for rebuking King Jeroboam's worship at Bethel and Dan. The text reads Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel, the land is not able to bear all his words. For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land. Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there; But prophesy not again any more at Bethel, for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court.

     Amos responded to Amaziah at Amos 7:14 saying I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit; And the Lord took me as I followed the flock, and the Lord said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel. Now therefore hear thou the word of the Lord; Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac. Therefore thus saith the Lord; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land; and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.

     Now note that Amos was not invited by Amaziah's ministerial committee to preach at Bethel or Dan. Dr. Amaziah told Amos you are not qualified or have the credentials to preach at Bethel; stop preaching and go back to gathering sycomore fruit on your farm. Amos responded and said Amaziah I'm not a prophet by parentage, I'm a prophet by providence. And I didn't come to Bethel to make the gospel acceptable, I came to make the gospel available.

     Like Amos, Brother Bob has been told many times that he was not qualified or had the credentials to be a preacher in Ohio. One person told me, I won't come to hear you preach until you get a DD doctor of divinity. I told that brother I have my DD, I'm a devil disturber. Then another person said you need a BA and PHD before you can preach. I told them that I had my BA, I'm born again, and that I have my PHD, I have a pentacostal hairdo. Finally another brother said I won't come to hear you preach until you become a doctor qualified to preach. I told that brother, I'm not a doctor, I'm an orderly, I clean up the messes that false preachers make.

CLASSIC BIBLICAL RHYMES

     Alright I'm gonna list below some of Brother Bob's favorite classical biblical rhymes to help my friends everywhere meditate on the blessed Word of God.

1) What is the only thing in heaven made by men? 
The scars on the body of our Lord Jesus. This was proven after Jesus' resurrection when Thomas saw the nail prints in Jesus' hands and the piercing in Jesus' side before he believed that Jesus was Lord.

2) Don't say Look what I've done, Jesus won't forgive me.
Say Look what He's done, and what I couldn't do.

3) When God says Go and we say No, the next word is Woe.
But when God says Go and we Go, the next word is Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

4) Say this to people who believe the false doctrine of evolution thinking man came from tadpoles, bullfrogs, monkeys, and baboons. Tell them first there was a tadpole with a tail long and slim, next there was a bullfrog with his tail tucked in, then there was a baboon swinging by his tail from tree to tree, and finally there was a Dr. with a PHD. Now neighbor doesn't that sound wrong. Colossians 1:16 tells us the truth saying 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. 

5) How do catholics make holy water?
Boil the hell out of it.

6) Why was Noah the first banker?
He floated his stock while the whole world was in liquidation.

7) 1 Cross+3 Nails=4Given.

8) Jesus was born so we could be reborn, Jesus died so we could live, Jesus came down so we could go up, Jesus suffered so we could have peace, Jesus had no where to live on earth so we could live in mansions in heaven. 

9) Jesus left the ivory palaces of heaven to be born in a barn in Bethlehem. Psalm 45:8 speaks about how Jesus left the ivory palaces of heaven to come to earth saying All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad. 

10) Too many people are expanding their physical waistlines instead of extending their spiritual coastlines.

11) Solve this riddle: The poor have it; the rich don't need it; and it's greater than God. The answer is Nothing. The poor have nothing; the rich don't need nothing, and nothing's greater than God.

12) What do you call a seven foot man walking down the street blowing a flute?
High faluton.

13) Alright my last one for you all to think about today: Ecclesisates 7:6 For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool, this also is vanity. 
Makes a lot of noise but doesn't last long.
