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)
2 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.
2 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?
3 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.
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.
