Parables That Explain The Scriptures


PARABLES ABOUT FAITH

     Pictured above for our first parable about faith, we see a tightrope walker from the 1800's named Charles Blondin. He went to Niagara Falls and stretched his tightrope line across Niagara Falls from the Canadian to the American side. Charles took his balancing pole and got on the wire. 

     As he was about to go out over Niagara Falls, he asked his best friend Larry, Do you believe I can make it? Larry replied, you can do it Charlie. You can do anything. Charles then said, Larry are you sure I can make it? Larry replied you can do it, you can do it Charlie. Charles replied OK Hop on my back. And Larry had faith and pictured above hopped on Charles' back and they both crossed successfully over the Niagara Falls.

     Friend reading this anywhere, be like Larry and hop on Jesus' back by faith and trust our Lord Jesus to get you across the great divide of this life to fulfill your dreams. Just hold on to Jesus and don't let go and everything will be alright. Get saved now and repent and decide to stop sinning, make Jesus God of your life, and daily look to the cross saying I am crucified with Christ and covered by the blood of Jesus. Let the devil know that the blood of Jesus has overcome the devil, evil must pass over me, and all my sins are all cleansed by the blood of Jesus.   

FAITH SEE THE INVISIBLE
BELIEVES THE INCREDIBLE
RECEIVES THE IMPOSSIBLE

FAITH IS NOT BELIEVING THAT GOD CAN
FAITH IS BELIEVING THAT GOD WILL

A LITTLE FAITH WILL BRING YOUR SOUL TO HEAVEN
BUT GREAT FAITH WILL BRING HEAVEN TO YOUR SOUL

PARABLE EXPLAINING WHY CALVINISM IS A FALSE TEACHING

     The false teaching of Calvinism says that only certain elect sinners can get saved and be predestinated to live forever in heaven. This is wrong because 1 Timothy 2:3-4 says For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all (not just elect) men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 

     Also Hebrews 2:9  tells us But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man (not just a few elect men). Finally, 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 (not just elect people) will, let him take the water of life freely.

     Note that Jesus said at Mark 1:17 Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. Pictured above, let's see why Calvinism is wrong as the father and son learn about Jesus while they fish on their boat. When I go fishing like this father and son, I don't just fish for elect fish; I fish for anything that bites. And if I happen to catch a fish and get him in the live well secure; then that fish is elect and he's predestinated because I know where he is going because he's become my property.

     The same thing happens when we witness and fish for lost souls with Jesus as our bait. There is no such thing as an elect or predestinated sinner. Salvation is offered to anyone who accepts Jesus as their God. Jesus said at John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me, and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. And after a person gets saved and receives Jesus as their Lord, then he or she becomes an elect or predestinated saint that is saved.

     Any religious nut that believes in Calvinism is confused about the meanings of election and predestination. Election and predestination are security doctrines for saved saints only. There is no such thing as an elect or predestinated sinner that Calvinism teaches. All men are sinners and must accept Jesus as Lord to become elect, saved, and predestinated saints that to go to heaven. When people ask Brother Bob if he is a Calvinist, I reply no I'm a Christian and I can't be both.

BROTHER BOB'S ANSWERS TO SOME FOOLISH QUESTIONS

1) A Jehovah Witness told Brother Bob that they didn't believe Jesus was God after I showed them Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that He might be Lord both of the dead and the living. The Jehovah Witness said Brother Bob I just can't get that out of the new testament. I replied, Of course you can't, It's in there to stay.
2) Then someone asked me Where did Cain get his wife? I replied I don't know and I don't care. If she suited Cain then she suited me.
3) Then someone asked me do you believe that a whale swallowed Jonah? I replied, I believe the bible is true and that God prepared a fish big enough to swallow this runaway preacher. If God can make a preacher, then God can make a fish big enough to swallow him.
4) Then someone asked me where is there an oyster big enough to make the pearls for the gates of heaven? I replied that he lives next door to the great fish that God prepared to swallow Jonah.
5) Finally someone asked me do you believe Balaam's ass talked? I replied of course because being a female she had the advantage to start with.

A PARABLE ABOUT PARADISE THAT ASCENDED ON HIGH

     Before Jesus walked on earth, people looked ahead in time for Jesus to appear. When these saints passed away, they went to Abraham's bosom called paradise in the lower parts of this earth, waiting for their Messiah Jesus to set them free. Now we are saints looking back in time at Jesus who died for us on the cross, waiting for Jesus to appear in the clouds, as we get caught up to live forever in peace with our Lord Jesus.

     As saints waited in paradise before Jesus died on the cross and rose again, Simeon first appeared and told these saints Jesus is coming soon to paradise to set us free; I saw baby Jesus and said at Luke 2:20 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word; For mine eyes have seen thy salvation. 

     Then the woman who was caught in the act of adultery appeared to these saints in paradise. She said Jesus is coming soon to paradise to set us free. I saw Jesus who told my accusers that wanted to stone me at John 8:7 He that is without sin among you; let him first cast a stone at her. And after all my accusers departed, Jesus told me Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? I replied No man, Lord. And Jesus said Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more. 

     Then John the Baptist appeared to these saints in paradise. He told them Jesus is coming real soon to paradise to set us free. After I saw Jesus and baptized Him in the Jordan river, I proclaimed at John 1:29 Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. 

     And the last saint to appear in paradise was the thief that died on a cross by Jesus. He told the saints in paradise Jesus is coming today to paradise to set us free. After I asked Jesus at Luke 23:42 Lord remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom, Jesus told me Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 

     Then Ephesians 4:8 tells us that Jesus ascended up on high (with the saints of paradise) and He led captivity captive and gave gifts unto men. Paradise was no longer in the lower parts of the earth where people in hell like the rich man Dives could see Abraham's bosom and paradise across a fixed unpassable gulf. Now paradise was up in the third heaven with Jesus and free forevermore. Paul confirmed this by saying at 2 Corinthians 12:4 that he was caught up (not caught down) into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

     Finally, Jesus told the devil that the saints of paradise were no longer in the lower parts of the earth. Jesus proclaimed to the devil that all saints forevermore live with Him in mansions on high in paradise now located up in the third heaven. Jesus stripped the devil of all his power and told the devil at Revelation 1:18 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.

     I pray in Jesus name this little bible study blesses multitudes on this earth with great peace. Feel free to email Brother Bob anytime at rz9tlm@gmail.com or write to Brother Bob Malkin, 2233 Pinetree Lane, Apt. N., Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068. (614) 604-7133.
