A STORY ABOUT THE TOMB OF JESUS
READ THIS STORY AND REJOICE
JESUS IS RISEN AND ALIVE FOREVERMORE
In 1885, the garden tomb which held the body of Jesus pictured above after His crucifixion was discovered by the British general Gordon. Being convinced that this was the very spot where the body of our Lord Jesus did lie, General Gordon had his men clear the dirt with great care. They gathered all of the debris and shipped it to the Great Britain Scientific Association. Every part of the debris was microscopically analyzed. But there was no trace detected of human remains whatsoever.
NO BONE FRAGMENTS, NO HAIR
NOTHING BUT DIRT
REJOICE AND SAY
WHAT THE ANGEL PROCLAIMED
HE IS NOT HERE FOR HE IS RISEN AS HE SAID
Friends, Buddah, Confucious, and Mohammed are still dead in their graves. But, our Lord Jesus is risen and alive forevermore. Be encouraged friends everywhere and say Romans 8:11 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 your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. Also say Philippians 3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself.
My good friend Mike Kahler had the honor of going into the tomb of Jesus pictured above. Mike said it was one of the most blessed moments of his life. And wow man could not find any trace of our Lord Jesus in the dirt of this grave. No bone fragments; no hair; nothing but dirt. Jesus is not in any grave; Jesus is risen in heaven and one day soon His saints will worship Him as God forevermore in the glorious kingdom. Get saved now and repent, stop sinning, and confess Jesus as your God, believing that Jesus died for you on the cross, was buried, and is risen.
OUR TIME ON THIS EARTH IS SHORT
A thin footprint on a sea lashed shore
The stay of a postman
The glimpse of a passing ship
A quick burst of music down a crowded street
Neighbor, time is short on this earth and James 4:14 pictured above says For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. Make the most of your time on this earth and witness about Jesus to multitudes all over this earth. Use this internet to witness to lost souls and win them to our Lord Jesus. Ephesians 5:14 tells us Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise. Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. And note that Psalm 39:5 tells us Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee; verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
A STORY ABOUT A MAN THAT WAS SLEEPING AT CHURCH
Every week Herman pictured above slept in church while the pastor preached his sermon. The pastor told his deacon, every time you see Herman sleeping, tap him on the head gently with this rubber hammer and wake him up.
One Sunday, while the pastor preached and Herman slept,
The deacon tapped Herman on the head with the rubber hammer
And Herman fell down in the middle of the church aisle, shook his head
Saying Please hit me again, I can still hear him
Friends, most people today are like Herman and asleep and not looking for Jesus to return soon in the clouds to greet the caught up saints in the air with peace forevermore. Many people today are overcharged with the cares of this life by constantly looking at facebook, instagram, and youtube on their cellphones while they text each other. Cellphones and computer websites like facebook are not bad but too much texting and use of the cellphones and internet will make people sleep and forget to look for Jesus' soon return and the needs of lost souls on this earth.
Take time to read Jesus' warning at Luke 21:34 that says And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life (too much facebook, texting, and cellphone use) and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Remember, to serve Jesus, sometimes we have to put down and turn off the cellphone, stop looking at facebook, and stop texting while we read the Word of God and take time to worship our Lord Jesus while ministering to the needs of poor lost souls all around this earth. Jesus said at John 4:35 Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields (the lost souls in this world that need to hear about the Lord Jesus) (not at your cellphone and facebook) for they are white already to harvest.
PARAKLETOS PROVES THAT JESUS IS GOD AND THE HOLY GHOST
For our final revelation today let's compare two bible verses where we see the word parakletos and find that Jesus is God and the Holy Ghost. First we learn that Jesus is our parakletos advocate lawyer at 1 John 2:1 that says My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate (defined as parakletos) with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
Now let's compare the second bible verse where parakletos is defined as the Comforter Holy Ghost at John 14:26 that says But the Comforter (also defined as parakletos), which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Now like putting the pieces of a puzzle together, let's compare the word parakletos in 1 John 2:1 and John 14:26. We learn that our advocate lawyer Jesus is also God and the Comforter Holy Ghost because parakletos means both advocate and Comforter. Note that when anyone gets saved and receives the Lord Jesus, they also receive the Holy Spirit that is one with the Lord Jesus. Titus 3:5 says 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 (This bible verse says when anyone gets saved they also receive and are renewed with the Holy Ghost). It's wrong teaching when someone tells you that you need to work to get the Holy Spirit after you are saved.
And finally note one of God's names called The God And Father of our Lord Jesus Christ proving that Jesus is one with God and Jesus is the Lord God. Take time to read the following bible verses where this blessed name of God appears. Ephesians 1:3 says Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:3 says Blessed be the God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort. And finally 1 Peter 1:3 says Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
I pray in Jesus name that this bible study blesses multitudes all over this earth with peace and joy where many people get saved.
