Judges 2:10-15

Hey Everyone,

Well hello, I hope that you reached the this blog in the mist of happy scrolling ! To the followers welcome back!  thanks for your support, you are appreciated. If this is your first time here in my corner of WordPress thank you for stopping by you are also appreciated. Listen to everyone if you are in agreement please like and comment I love to hear from you guys.

Who am I, I am Wilhelmina Lundy that’s pronounced Wil a mena Lun dee and I am a woman of God, a blogger, a periscope broadcaster, and an online business owner. but the thing I love the most is blogging the word of God. He is wonderful because if it was not for his love, I would have never made it to be all those things. I am a survivor of depression and oppression until Jesus Christ came  into my life and changed it. removed me from my bed and made me busy and redeemed me from my oppression. Praise the Lord. So let’s get in to the scripture

Judges 2:10-15New International Version (NIV)

10 After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. 12 They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger13 because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths. 14 In his anger against Israel the Lord gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. 15 Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the Lord was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. They were in great distress.

After the generation of Joshua’s kids the new Generations of Israelites were coming up. They knew nothing of God and what he did for Israel by this time.( we see this everyday, the children in our generation. look at you like you have two heads when you speak about what Jesus did for us on the cross)  they followed and worshiped various gods.( if you go back to the first Judges blog or turn to Judges 2:1-3 and you will find it in verse 3.) and they abandoned GOD breaking the covenant, agreement, deal.

Their abandonment angered God and he allowed their enemies to defeat them they did not have Gods favor while they were praising other Gods, worshiping, Idolizing.

I just wanted to add this bonus scripture. how great is our God? He is a Good Father

Judges 2:16New International Version (NIV)

16 Then the Lord raised up judges,[a] who saved them out of the hands of these raiders.

Even though God was angry with them he still had compassion and raised judges and when the judge died the people would get worse in their evil ways with every generation.

honestly I see it like that now. Turn on the news in any town and you’ll see children shooting up everything, no respect for life. People are fighting in the name of entertainment, scream world star. Not  omg someone has been assaulted. Let me say, I am a firm believer that we were not put on this earth to be abused, to be punched in our faces. we shouldn’t be walking down the street worried about if someone is going to slice our faces or shoot us for their pleasures. I pray that the Lord has Mercy on us and walks continuously with us, because at this point only through his good grace that we go untouched.

OK everyone God Bless you guys may he continue to walk with.

If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time

 

Really quick I received a prayer for those who want to accept Jesus Christ in to there lives. that is the first step the prayer comes from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. It says pray a prayer like this.
Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner,
and I ask for your forgiveness,
I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead.
I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow you as my Lord and savior. in your name, Amen.

Judges 2:1-3

Hey Everyone,

I hope I’m reaching you in happy scrolling!!!!! (yes, I’m using my Oprah you get a car voice) I’m so excited so early in this Blog woohoo. well the studies of Judges has gotten my hyper why because I needed this study, I needed to be in the word. But first things first where do I start.

Hello and welcome back to my followers!!!! Thank you so much for clicking the visit button I do appreciate you for stopping by and sharing the word with me. If this is your first time in my corner in WordPress. Thanks for Joining, if you’re enjoying your time please click the follow button so you can get notification of future post. Also to everyone if you are in agreement or like the subject don’t forget to like and comment I do love hearing from you guys.last but not least.

Who am I, I am Wilhelmina Lundy that’s pronounced wil- a -mena Lun- dee and I am a Woman of God, a Blogger, a Broadcaster on periscope, and an online business owner yes I ware many hats, but blogging the word of the Lord is ,my favorite hat. I am also a survivor of depression and oppression. The things that take control over us. I think we should get in to Judges on that note

 

Judges 2:1-3King James Version (KJV)

And an angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.

And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?

Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.

2356dda9cca7b9b7336b22358561c273

OK, Praise God. Judges says; The angel of the Lord says to the Israelites I brought you out of Egypt and brought you to the Land ,that I promised your forefathers, I will never break my promise with, and in return you should not be making covenants agreements, or deals with those of this land but you can tear down their alters.  but yet you disobeyed me. why have you done this?

so we can imagine that the Israelites began living in the ways of the people of the land praising false gods and covering each others wives, and husbands, stealing, lying,  just giving in to the flesh all together. There was no control or respect of the law like their ancestors who saw what the Lord did for their people. ( Kind of like now when we speak of Jesus dying for our sins and raising from the dead and people are like prove it and then we have others flipping the word and being unsound with the doctrine. so some of us just do what we want not believing all together.)

So the angel of the Lord says I will not move them from you but make then a thorn in your side pains in your butts, aggravation in your life, and their gods will snare you. entrap you choke you.

Now let me remind you that these Israelites where not the ones that came out of Egypt with Moses these are like generations later. so everything that happen in Exodus was hearsay to them, who had little to no faith. They saw the ancestors  praying, and thanking God but the younger Generation was selfishly not interested. For that God like any father needed to teach his children a lesson.

We know about those lessons. you know, when we know we’re doing something unpleasing to God and we fall,but he catch us right when we fall, listen I’m giving it all away. You know when that inner voice tells us not to talk or tell someones business but we do it any way and now we’re fighting, arguing, and cussing. Or the inner voice says don’t take that money out that register and we do it, and now we’re out of a job, and on our way to homelessness, because we went against Gods law. We sure didn’t pray before you did those things, and most likely it was for something that we’re idolizing over.

So now all the wicked and sinful things that we end up doing just starts nagging at us and really stressing us out, the things that we idolize start to be the reason we are falling. I guess we can say it is Written in Judges 2:1-3 that If you abandon God he will let you the thing you idolize consume you. boy oh boy. OK everyone I hope you enjoyed the word catch me tomorrow and I will be sliding down to Judges 2: 10-15 Have a wonderful day and God Bless you.

Heyyyyy

Hey Everyone,

It seems that I have been quiet, I had the opportunity to check out some blogs. Great Job everyone! !!!
We are all soo busy learning and letting out what is turning in our minds.
we are lucky to be able to let it out, and allow someone to heal through you, God bless you all for being transparent.

I have been pretty busy and hadn’t had time to write or get in to the word. So today I took a mental health day.
I so needed it. That moment when all you want is to be in your father’s  presence.
I have been pushing so many buttons that  I forgot why I am on wordpress, which was the word of the Lord.
To remember all you do is for the study of the word, and your relationship with the father.
On that note happy Sunday everyone have a wonderful  beginning of the
week be blessed.

Revealing My Identity

joannoftheforest

Anything is Possible!

She thew away her masks and put on her soul

It’s still me, joannaoftheforest!

My “government name” wasn’t a big secret, and Joanna of the Forest is still part of who I am. But in my determination to move forward and create a website from my WP blog, I bought the  domain name: joannesilvia.com. I didn’t know that when I bought the domain name that it would automatically replace joannaoftheforest.

I sincerely hope my followers can find me, because I’ve  come to love my blogging families here and on “Loving Me, Too.” My plan was to make each of my blogs a page on the website. I apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience. Since I don’t see how to change the address back to joannaoftheforest, I’m going to give it some time and have faith that you will be able to find me.

Any suggestions or tips will be greatly appreciated!

Selfishness

Hello Everyone,

Quote-About-Selfish-Wallpapers.jpg
I Hope this Blog reaches you in a great moment of your day. Let me introduce myself, My Name is Wilhelmina Lundy  that’s pronounced  Wil -a -mena Lun dee. I am a Woman of God and a Blogger

To all my Followers Welcome Back! Thanks for taking the time out to read this blog, you are very much appreciated. If this is your first time in my little corner of the world. Welcome also! Thanks for Joining in. If you like what I’m blogging about, please click the follow button, and to everyone if your in agreement with what I am saying please like. Thanks again you all are appreciated.

There isn’t a scripture today, this is just me coming to you guys about a plague that attacks alot of us. It’s Called Selfishness, some of us don’t even realize that we have it. Whenever you  are more concerned about your own outcome and not the outcome of others, that is called selfishness. My opinion;  it’s not a great thing, It’s familiar to a lot of us but It’s not healthy.

I can say thank God Jesus wasn’t selfish, could you imagine, we would still be living by the Laws that is in the book of Leviticus with no redemption. To be a victim of the selfish behavior is pain full. You wonder what did you do to deserve someone to be so nasty to you.

Today I was given the opportunity by God to experience the selfishness from the outside.

At work we had too many fruit cups. At first lunch ( 6th grade lunch), a child asked me if they could have two strawberry cups( actually the child from my Our Children blog, Student 1). I told him yes, and to get it from my line.

He went to my supervisors line. She rushed over to me and asked, if I told the child he could have two strawberries. I said yes. (Mind you she just finished saying that the manager said we are going to have to through out the pears at the end of the day, my line had 43 pear cups, and 46 Strawberry cups.)she continues to tell me she already sold half her case I walked in to the kitchen and saw that she hadn’t sold as many as she said, My spirit told me to unselfishly give her my box of strawberries my line will be fine with out. and it was,most of my children took corn.

well this is how my Lord and savior works, at the end of the day she had more strawberry cups then she could handle. even trying to give them away to the eighth graders she still had more strawberry cups then I threw away pears. I threw away about 30 pears. she also asked me at the end of the day if my children would eat them. I responded, they will be fine without them. I hope she learned the lesson on selfishness, and what ends up happening to a glutton. I’m sure when she realized what she did it weighed on her mind. but that is for the Lord to handle

Everyone be careful how  you treat people, the child most likely was hungry, yet greed stopped him from being full or satisfied. We don’t know what people go through at home or in there minds what kind of mental distress their going through. Treat people how you would expect Jesus to treat you. Selfishness can break a fragile heart.

Be Blessed Everyone

If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time

2 Thessalonians 1:3-6

Hello everyone,

To God be the Glory, How are you guys? I hope that you guys are having great scrolling and a wonderful Tuesday. Today I celebrated the fact that we have 2 more taco Tuesdays with the students. Once they thought about  it that way some children smiled.

This scripture was written by Paul his letters to the Thessalonians, about the confusion of the second coming of Christ.

1-thessalonians-2-8-791x1024.jpg

2 Thessalonians 1:3-6New International Version (NIV)

Thanksgiving and Prayer

We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters,[a] and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.

All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you

In this scripture what I see it meaning is. We need to always thank God for each other and  Praise him when we are going through hard times and Praise him when we are going through Good time. together so that you may help each other. someone may be going through something that I just triumphed over. My story tells them God will make a way

There will be Hard times because your faith is growing, when your faith gets stronger the enemy gets stressed out, he begins to work harder.  we just need to stay strong in Gods way. live in Gods will. well we need a support fellow Christians that maybe going through it

And he will pay back to those who trouble you. Those who tempt, harass, or abuse you, will have to deal with God, they will have to go to judgement for what they did or have done. That’s why we say Lord have mercy on them, and as a Christian you want to say that. You don’t want to have ill will toward someone sitting in your heart. But know the Lord will fight your battle, and it’s already won.

Your faith is how you know, trust his unchanging hand.

If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time

Really quick I received a prayer for those who want to accept Jesus Christ in to there lives. that is the first step the prayer comes from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. It says pray a prayer like this.
Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner,
and I ask for your forgiveness,
I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead.
I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my heart and life.
I want to trust and follow you as my Lord and savior. in your name, Amen.

Ruth

A quick, quick break down of the book of Ruth Please I encourage you to get your bible out and read the book it’s not long but it pack a powerful message.

Ruth was married to Naomi’s son  Mahlon  Naomi’s husband and two sons had passed away. With no money and no family or kinsman ( men who would marry her daughter in-laws, that were in the family she had no other sons. ) Naomi tells her two daughter in Laws to stay in their home town  of Moab and find a husband. Orpah killion wife stays, but Ruth goes with Naomi to Bethlehem. Eventually after being faithful to God  and Naomi Ruth was blessed with a husband (Boaz)  and eventually with a son (Obed) who ended up being David’s grandfather.

I’m sure Ruth didn’t know what Naomi’s  God had planned, but out of love and respect for Naomi she was faithful to God and her Mother in law and for her faithfulness she was given a child and another chance to have a family.

So to let you guys know don’t turn away your next great thing, because you doubt you deserve something great. You do, God Loves you, and he wants you to be great in all the wonderful things that you do with the extra day he gives to you.
