Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that in this day the angels are lifting you up so that your feet will not strike against any stone.

It gets hard and confusing at times, just continue to push through and grab on to God’s vision. We may not know what is going to be standing in front of us, but what we do know is that we WILL be lifted over it.

Matthew Chapter 4

Satan Tempts Jesus in the desert

Verses 1-11

The word tells us that after Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist, the spirit led him in to the desert to be tempted by the devil. After he fasted for forty days and forty nights he was hungry. The word says the tempter came and said

If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread

Jesus answered

It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word, that comes from the mouth of God

The word says that the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple

If you are Son of God, he said throw yourself down. For it is written

He will command his angels concerning you,

And they will lift you up in their hands,

So that you will not strike your foot against a stone

Jesus answered him

It is also written

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.

The word says that the devil took him to the highest mountain and said

All this I will give you, if you will bow down and worship me.

Jesus said

Away from me Satan, for it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.

Then the devil left and the angels attended to him

When we are walking toward righteousness and moving in the provision of God. We get tempted. Tempted to go back and do the things that we once have done. Tempted to step out of character. Think of Jesus who Commanded Satan to get away from him.

It’s time for us to start to command the tempter to go! And when we command Satan to go the angels will come and attend to us. Why? Because the Holy Spirit lives within us.

 

Jesus begins his ministry

Verses 12- 17

The word says when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison he returned to Galilee this fulfilled the prophesy through Isaiah

Land of Zubulun and land of Naphtali,

The way to the sea, along the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles

The people living in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of shadow of death

a light has dawned.

From that time on Jesus began to preach,

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.

No matter what goes in in our lives as Christians, we learn that the most valuable information to pass on is Salvation.

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near

This was the beginning of Jesus’s ministry be for the miracle signs, and wonders it was repent.

What the Father has already put in place will come to pass. What the father has already meant for your purpose on this earth is already waiting in the spirit realm.

 

Verses 18 – 22

Four fishermen follow Jesus

The word says that Jesus was walking along the sea and saw Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew throwing there fishing net and Jesus said to them.

Come follow me and I will make you fisher of men

And they followed. Then he saw James and his brother John who were in a boat with their father and Jesus called to them tow come with him and they did.

As I was writing this I asked why fishermen? the Holy Spirit reminded me how patient fishermen are, how patient we have to be when ministering to people. Some will jump in the net but others will run and you will have to be patient enough to let them come on their own.

 

Verses 23 – 25

The word tells us that Jesus went through Galilee preaching the good news of the kingdom in synagogues, healing the sick, ill, and disable.

When we think about Jesus we think about his sacrifice, paying the ransom for our souls. But getting to know Jesus is about his walk before he got to the sacrifice. The walk that some of us struggle to walk. The faith that it takes to allow God to rule over every aspect of our lives taking nothing back that we have given him.

Faith that allows us to be patient fishermen, faith that confirms that we are servants for the kingdom of God. Faith that allows us to heal, pray, and overcome. Faith that allows us to believe that the angels Will lift us up and our feet will not strike against a stone.

 

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 3

logo_2042734_web

Blessings everyone,

 

God is so good to us! If we are really listening, we will hear the warnings before the storm and in the storms. For those that think that God forgot about them, know that God just wants you to listen for him. At times listening to him may require others to come in and deliver a message. If you are not willing to chew and swallow (listen and think), then you will miss your instructions to how to get over that barrier.

Matthew Chapter 3

Verses  1- 12

John the Baptist prepares the way for Jesus

The word tells us that John the Baptist would go to preach in the desert of Judea during this time. He would say to the people

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

The prophecy of Isaiah came to pass through John the Baptist

“A voice of one calling in the desert,

‘Prepare the way for the Lord,

Make straight paths for him.’”

The word says that Johns clothes was made of camel hair, he also wore a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey. The people would come from Jerusalem, Judea and the region of Jordan to confess their sins and be baptized in the Jordan river by John the Baptist.

The word tells us that when John the Baptist started to see Pharisees and Sadducees coming he begin to say to them. You group of snakes, who warned you to try to get away from the wrath? He tells them to do well with keeping repentance, and not to try to say that they were sons of Abraham. He tells them God can raise children for Abraham out of stones.

“the Ax is at the root of every tree, the tree that doesn’t produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown in the fire.”

“one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry.

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand,

and he will clear his threshing floor,

gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

 

After reading these verses I was stuck for a moment I begin to think about John the Baptist, about the Sadducees (group who denies resurrection). It is the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ that allows us to go to the Father clean.

Because John the Baptist, only can baptize with water and you repent, you would have to stay well in that repentance. To be a child of Abraham we go through the son of Abraham Jesus Christ. Anyone that does not come from good will be cut off. From the beginning the God knows our intents, because God knows our hearts. We can’t go into spiritual oneness with just the desire to succeed financially or to get what we want. We must go in to things with our whole heart in it. When we are not all the way there for the right reasons we will not produce good fruit.

The word says that Jesus will come and take the grain ( the good, fruitful) and blow away the chaff ( the debris, not needed) and burn it away.

Verse 13 -17

John Baptizes Jesus

The word says that Jesus call from Galilee to the Jordan river to be baptized by John. John tried to change Jesus’s will to be baptized by him. He begin to say to Jesus

“I need to be baptized by you”

Jesus told John “to let it be so now, it is proper for us to do this tow fulfill all righteousness.”

Then John consented.

The word says as soon as Jesus was baptized he went up out of the water. The word says heaven was opened, and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said

“This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Jesus new the importance of the order, He knew the prophecy’s need to come to pass. Because John1:1 in the beginning was the word and the word was with God. John1:14 The word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

God Loved Jesus because Jesus was his son and he was pleased with Jesus because Jesus was his son.

For those that thinks that God forgot about you, he didn’t he is waiting for the protical child to return. He is waiting for you to be still and listen to all that he wants to teach you. All that he wants you to teach. Trust and believe you are not forgotten you are, very much loved. Just because he has placed you on this earth.

Matthew Chapter 2

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you ‘re moving through your day with a released heart. We will be stagnant from growth, if we are held hostage by the things that have hurt us or confused us. It becomes almost a self torture Ps 106:45 for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of great love he relented. God is ready to change his mind when it comes to our sin, so be ready to release and relent your feelings toward those that may have gotten on your bad side.(Thank you minister Barrett)

Matthew Chapter 2

Verse 1-6

Visitors Arrive from Eastern Lands

The word says after Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the wise men came from the east to Jerusalem and asked

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”

The word says king Herod was disturbed, and so was Jerusalem along with him. King Herod had called together all the priests and teachers. Herod asked them where was Jesus supposed to be born and the told him in Bethlehem then the told him what the prophet had written.

“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel”

Here we learn that Jesus has been born in Bethlehem and in that someone has already seen him as a threat before he even could speak. I want you to think about your purpose that thing you want to do so bad and I want you to realize that there are people that will try to stop you before you step out of the gate.

Herod saw Jesus as  threat ! let’s continue

Verse 7-12

Herod called the wise men to meet with him and find out exactly what time the star appeared, them he told them to go seek the child and report back to him so that he can worship him as well. The word says the went on their journey and followed the star until it stopped where Jesus was. They were overjoyed, when they came to the house they saw Jesus with his mother Mary and they worshipped him. They then opened their treasures and presented Jesus with Gold, incense, and myrrh. They were warned in a dream not to go back to king Herod they ended up going back to their country another route.

After I read this I wanted to know the meanings of the gifts so here you go

Gold =Divinity

Incense/frankincense = used for worship

Myrrh= used for embalming/ also mixed with wine to make a drink, the same drink that the Savior was given before he was crucified. It is said to be a stupefying potion

My spirit tells me these gifts would be what Jesus would be from the beginning to his crucifixion.

Verse 13 – 18

The escape to Egypt

The word says that when the wise men had left an angel had come to Joseph and told him to get up and escape Egypt with his wife and Jesus. The angel told him to stay there, until he comes back, the angel told Joseph that Herod will search for Jesus to kill him.

The word says that Joseph got up and took Jesus and Mary in the middle of the night and left for Egypt. And so, the word of the Lord through his prophet was confirmed

“Out of Egypt I called my son”

The word says that when Herod realized that he was tricked by the wise men he ordered for all boys under the age of 2yrs old to be killed. He went by the time frame, that the wise men told him that the star appeared. The word says that then the prophet Jeremiah’s prophesy was fulfilled

“A voice is heard in Ramah,

Weeping and great mourning,

Rachel weeping for her children

And refusing to be comforted,

Because they are no more.”

If you follow this blog you know that my faith tells me that God confirms the word of his servant. If you are moving in what God has placed you to do, and you are praising him and letting move in your life. Then you are a servant of God. Just as Prophet Jeremiah’s word was fulfilled so will yours.

Verse 19 – 23

The word tells us that after Herod died an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph and told him to take Jesus and Mary to Israel. The angel told Joseph that the ones who were trying to take the life of Jesus was dead. When Joseph was on his way to Israel he heard that the son of Herod had now took his father’s place and this scared Joseph so he went to Nazareth and then the word of the prophet was fulfilled.

“He will be called a Nazarene”

Reading this chapter with renewed eyes is very different for me. When I first read this chapter years ago I just looked at it as a story but with renewed eyes I see. The Gods word will always come to pass. The word of the prophet is things that God as told the prophets that the relay to the people.

It also shows me that God shifts things so that his word will come to pass when you wal in righteousness as Joseph did, you gain the gift of discernment and this is exactly what Joseph used to get to Nazareth.

Walking by faith is how we walk in righteousness walking in purpose is how we walk with God how we worship him with our work (thank you Alethia Hudson) be blessed everyone s if you go to the Journey in praise Facebook page you will be able to see the video that was made when I received revelation on this word.

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

Matthew Chapter 1

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well, walking in faith and building your relationship with God. This is a new serious for our bible study, as I was finishing up I Samuel the Lord challenged me to meet Jesus. Not as before but as a new, what I mean by that is with the knowledge that he has given me over the year. So I am excited to walk through the book of Matthew with a renewed spirit.

Matthew Chapter 1

Verses 1- 17 tells us how Jesus comes from the bloodline of Abraham and David.

Verse 18 – 24

The word tells us that Marry was set to marry Joesph. Before they came together as husband and wife, she had became pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Joseph a righteous man had decided to divorce Mary quietly.

An angel had come to him in his dreams and told him who Mary was preparing to birth and whay he would do. People Will call the child Immanuel God with us.

The word says when Joseph woke up he did what the angel said, he and Mary wouldn’t become on flesh until after she gave birth.

This is a short chapter but it speaks volumes on faith. It was Joseph’s faith that allowed him to be obedient had he not been obedient, Mary’s life would have went left and the rearing of Jesus would have been very different.

When we have faith in the word of God, their will be difficulty and shifts in your plans. Having faith in the end result is when we rest on God
