Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your day, I pray that you all are in praise to God, that he saw fit for us to walk in another day. It’s good to be in praise but our praise becomes authentic when we know why we are in praise. A genuine praise opens the room for the spirit of God.

Isaiah Chapter 24

The Lords devastation of the Earth

The prophet Isaiah starts by saying the Lord is going to turn the Earth to waste. The word says that the Earth will be plundered. The Lord says that the Earth has been defiled by it’s people ( I’m side eyeing, as I’m thinking about what is going on now ) ūüėí

The word says that they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statues and broken the everlasting covenant, it’s people must bear it’s guilt.

It goes on to say; all joy turns to gloom, it follows with all joyful sounds are banished from the Earth (v11)

Isaiah says the people are all happy and singing ” Glory to the righteous one” but¬† he sees the unseen and they will fall. the Earth will shake and the people of the Earth will fall in a pit, those that climb out will be trapped. The Prophet says the moon will be dismayed¬† (confused) the sun ashamed (hide)¬†In the brackets is the words the Holy spirit gave me while reading this word.

The Chapter ends with “For the Lord almighty will reign on mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before it’s elders- with great Glory.

Can I say that this Chapter had me in my feelings. First it took me awhile to glean from this chapter. usually I will read and the holy spirit will jump right in and teach me. But In the beginning of the year I had a dream involving the ground opening up and fire falling from the sky and landing on me but I did not get burned, my family and I actually got out of the town safely To God be the Glory. that dream kept interrupting my lesson.

I believe we all quietly worry about the end of the Earth and pray that we are doing all that we need to do, before Jesus comes back, it almost makes me want to be like Abraham and say Lord if their are 10 good people will you save the Earth.

This prophecy is why servants are so important, we want to be able to saturate the Earth with praise to heaven. There is so much hate self hate; lack of humanity; selfishness that I believe the Father is in heaven SMH’n ( you know what I mean).

What I ask you to take away from this chapter is give God praise, help someone find there self on the remnant side of this battle, help your neighbor make praise a habit. No we can’t change the Prophecy God is not a man that He should lie, but he is coming back for the church, so when you look to the left or to right, try to help the person you see prepare themselves for that Journey.

Blessing If you would like to start your relationship with Our Lord and Savior, do me a favor, turn your bible, download the youversion bible app, or google; Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get yourself in a bible based church,  start your word study, and find yourself a group of like minded individuals to fellowship and begin to build your foundation on Faith!

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 20

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are relying on God for your every need. Don’t look for others to take care of you, or protect you look to God.

Isaiah Chapter 20

verse 1- 6

 

This chapter tells us about the prophecy against Egypt and Cush. The word says the king of Assyria had went to Ashdod and attacked and captured the people. when this happen the Lord told the prophet Isaiah to strip from his sackcloth and sandels and walk bare for three years as a sign against Eygpt and Cush (Ethiopia) showing shame to Egypt.

The Isralites will see what has happened to the people that they trusted and ran for help to.

The Israelites had to see that running to a people for help was not the way. How could it be when God is our and our light. 

Have you ever noticed it’s when you think someone will come through with what you need and you depend on that will be the moment that they are not available or able ¬†to help. a set up to depend only on God.

If you are tired of depending on other people and you want to try the Almighty God turn your bible, download the youversion free bible app, or google Romans 10:9, Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin your righteous walk with fellowship, prayer life and bible study, and let God move mountains for you.

Isaiah Chapter 8

logo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in obedience, and making sure that you have your ears to Gods lips. As I was finishing up this chapter I meditated on how can I make sure that I give God the Glory in all things concerning me, that includes trials and tribulations, rocket fire and waits.

When we pray for God to come in and hand our enemies to us, kick down doors that we though were cemented we must be ready to welcome God in to our environment. This chapter was a sneak peak of what happens when God turns his back on us and treats us as we treat Him.

To the followers of this blog, welcome, Thank you for your support, likes and comments. If you just so happen to be scrolling and stumbled upon this blog, Welcome! thanks for joining in. Be sure to like and follow so that you can get notifications of new post when they come up. Let me Introduce my self!

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve God is writing this bible study blog, attached to the blog is a Facebook bible study group, as well as from sinner to saint Prayer wall (send request to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com )

You can connect with me through any of the outlets on the flyer to the right to follow the activities.

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 8

Verse 1-10 Isaiah and his children as signs

These verses tell us that the Lord told Isaiah to take a scroll and write on it¬† with a regular pen Maher –¬†Shalal- Hash- Baz (Quick to plunder, swift to the spoil) and so Isaiah called on the witnesses¬† of the priest Uriah, and Zachariah son of Jerberchiah. Isaiah said that then he made love to his wife the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son and the Lord told Isaiah to name him Maher -Shalal-Hash-Baz. Isaiah says that the Lord said before the boy knew how to call out for his parents the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.

The Lord spoke to Isaiah again telling him that because the people rejected his presence and rejoiced over the fall of Rezin and the son of Ramaliah, the Lord is about to bring on them a mighty floodwaters of the river.

The king of Assyria and all his army will overflow through the towns and cities and fill up the land.The word goes on to say that the Lord tells Isaiah to tell the people, they will be shattered into pieces. Listen for countries, prepare yourself but you will be broken. Make plans, but it wont come to anything, speak your plans, but it won’t come to nothing, because God is with us.

 

These verses show us how powerful God is when we turn our backs to him. When we do not follow instructions and when the Lord decides to confirm his word. When we apply this word to our lives it starts with our faith.

The Lord will confirm his word. In Chapter 7 the Lord says that Rezin, Syria and the son of Ramaliah would not get their way. even though the prophecy was confirmed the people still turned their backs on God rejoicing the fall but not giving God the Glory.

We can not pray and beg God to deliver us and then when he shows up not bother to give Him the praise and the Glory for taking care of us.  We learn in this chapter that something bigger than what we first feared will be the end result. No matter what you plan to get out of it, your still going to feel it.

We must give God the Glory when He comes through in your life. We should be on a “As for me and my household” Level with our praise.

verse 11-22

The word says that the Lord spoke to Isaiah with a strong hand (seriousness) that he (Isaiah) should not walk in the ways of the people. not to say conspiracy concerning all things the call a conspiracy, nor should he be afraid of their threats, nor trouble. you should Hallow in him, lets Him be your fear, let Him be your dread. He will be a stone of stumbling, a rock to trip on, to both the houses of Israel. A trap and snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and many among them shall stumble over them then they will fall and be broken and even be cornered and trapped.

Bind up the testimonies and seal the law. (here’s your ark) among my disciples and I will wait on the Lord who hides his face from the house of Jacob and I will look for him.

Isaiah says listen carefully “Here am I and the children the Lord gave to me. we are signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts who dwells in mount Zion.”

And when they say to you seek those who are mediums and wizards,  who whispers and mutters, should not a people seek their God? Should the seek the dead on behalf of the living? Direct them to the testimonies and the law. If they do not speak according to this word, that is because there is no light in them.

Those that seek any one other than God will go through life deeply distressed and hungry (empty) and they will become enraged and curse their king and their God as they look upward, and they will only see darkness and distress. When they look at the earth, and they will be driven away in darkness and overwhelming night.

We are placed in some difficult surrounding around people that have zero light. If we are not careful their speech can easily become our speech. As believers we must focus only on following the word of God and listen only to those who walk with the light of God in them.

When we are not filed by the glory of God, we are walking around anxious and hungry, frustrated and tired, that position will place you in darkness.

If you find yourself listening and following the ways of the “they’s” you will find yourself empty and hungry, because you are looking for answers to life from the dead,

 

Hey! If you want to be in the light and get your answers from the one true living God turn your bible, download the free bible app or google Romans 10:9

Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead, you shall be Saved.

Start your relationship with God by reading this chapter in your bible and let the Lord tell you what you need to know. get your self into a sound doctrine bible based church and begin your fellowship with followers of Christ Jesus

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 6

Blessings Everyone,

As we walk a righteous walk, it’s important that we allow the spirit of the Lord to come in and order our steps.

We say Holy Spirit you are welcime here. And then we walk testing our faith in God and praising Him for what we know he will do.

To the followers, Thank you for your support and the likes and shares of the word of the Lord.

If You happen to be scrolling and stumbled on this blog welcome!!

Thanks for joining in, if you are led please be sure to follow and like to be sure that you are getting new blogs.

Let me introduce myself, my name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. If You are looking for some of my services you can go to the about section and get it along with contact info.

Let’s get to the Word

Isaiah Chapter 6

Verse 1-16

Isaiah says the year that the King Uzziah died he saw the Lord seated on his throne, his robe was so long it filled the temple and he was highly honored.

Above him was Seraphs each of them had 6 wilngs 2 covered their faces, 2covered their feet, and they flew with 2. They were calling out to each other saying “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord who rules over all the whole earth is full of glory.”

Isaiah says their voices were so strong it caused the stone door frame to shake and the temples were full of smoke.

Isaiah cried out, How terrible it is for me! I’m about to be destroyed! My mouth speaks sinful words, and I live among people who speaks sinful words.

Now I have seen the King with my own eyes, He is Lord who rules over all.

A Seraph flew over to Isaiah holding hot coal with a tong. He touched Idaiahs mouth with the hot coal and said.

“This has touched your lips, your guilt has been taken away, your sin has been paid for.”

Isaiah says then he heard the voice of the Lord say; ” who will I send? Who will go for us?

And Isaiah answered;

“Here I am, send me”

The Lord told Isaiah to go and speak to the people and tell them

‘ you will hear but never understand. You will see but never know what you are seeing;

Make the hearts of these people stubborn.

Plug up their ears, close their eyes.

Otherwise the might see with their eyes,

They might hear with their ears, they might understand with their hearts and they might turn to me and be healed’

Then Isaiah said “Lord, how long will it be like that?”

The Lord answered it will be like that until the cities of Israel are destroyed.

And no one is living in them it will last until the houses are deserted.

It will last until I have sent everyone far away, the land will be totally deserted.

Even is a tenth of the people remain there, the land will be completely destroyed again.

But when oak trees and Terebinth Trees are cut down, stumps are left.

And my people will be like stumps that begin grow again.

Let me start with the definition os Seraphs- an angelic being regarded in traditional Christian angelology as belonging to the highest order of the ninefold celestial hierarchy, associated with light, after, and purity.

The verses above tells my spirit that guilt of our imperfection have already been dealt with.

God has already forgiven and gone to the next thing. When we find ourselves feeling convicted and riddled with guilt for our actions, and the way we use our tongues we go into hiding from God.

I like to call it the Adam and Eve syndrome. When Adam ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, The Father walke d through the garden looking for him and he was hiding.

That’s kind of what we do, yet when we face God here comes a solution.

Adam was naked, after admitting his wrongs he was clothed.

Isaiah wasn’t right with his mouth, after admitting he was healed, and his mouth was used for God’s purpose.

There’s the consistency that we look for in our confirmation from the word of God.

If your holding on to your wrongs and not letting God deal with it then your going to be stuck.

You won’t be able to move in purpose.

If you are looking to move in your purpose and want to establish your foundation on faith, turn your Bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead according to the scriptures, you shall be saved.

I pray that you find your self a Bible based sound doctrine church and amazing fellowship, as You build your foundation on faith.

Isaiah Chapter 5

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are moving in God’s will for us.

I have been missing in action but I’m never too far and never but for so long.

This time I thought “well maybe the assignment is over” but God said no it hasn’t even began.

With that being said let’s get started.

To the followers; thank you for your support and your like and shares. You all have been a push in getting God’s word out there.

If you enjoyed this study and happen to have stumbled on this blog by scrolling,Welcome. If you are led please like, follow and share.

Let me introduce myself; My name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God.

Some of the ways that I serve God can be found in the about section. I use to put the intro in every Blog but with us moving in year 3 there are some changes. What you can find there is ( mininstries, prayer, social medias and email)

Let’s get to the word

Isaiah Chapter 5

The song of the vineyard

Verse 1-7

I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard on a fertile hillside.

He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines.

He built a tower in it’s midst and also made a winepress in it.

So he expected it to bring forth good grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes.

And now people of Jerusalem and Judah; Judge between me and my vineyard.

What more could have been done for my vineyard, than I have done for it.

When I wanted good grapes why did it bring me wilds grapes.

Now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard.

I will take away it’s hedge and it will be destroyed. I will breakdown it’s walls and it will be trampled.

I will make it a waste land, neither pruned nor cultivated and briers and thorns will grow there.

I will command the clouds not to rain on it.

The vineyard of the Lord is the nation of Israel. And the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in.

And he looked for justice but saw bloodshed for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

The Lord clears and strategically places us, giving us free will and then we start to break the laws just for self pleasure.

We become bad grapes. Imagine planting your grapes happy and waiting with expectation and your grapes come out all rotten and some are just not growing.

You have to figure how to get rid of all that bad fruit.

The Lord says I’m going to make sure to dry that land out. No cultivating, why?

To start over

Woes and Judgement

Verse 8 -17

Misery to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left, and you live alone in the land.

The Lord has declared to Isaiah

Surely the great houses will become worthless, empty the fine mansions left without occupants.

The vineyard will produce only 6 gallon of wine 360 pounds of seeds will only yield 36 pounds of grains.

Misery to those who rise early in the morning to get drunk.

Who stay up at night until they are inflamed with wine.

They have harps and lures at there banquet, piper, timbrets and wine; but have no regards for the deeds of the Lord.

No respect for thw work of his hands, there for my people will go in exile for lack of understanding.

Those of high rank will die of hunger and common people will be parched with thirst.

There for death expands it’s jaws opening wide it’s mouth;

Into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers

So people will be brought low and everyone humbled.

The eyes of arrogant, humbled,

But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by his justice and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.

Then sheep will graze as in their own pastire lambs will eat among the ruins of the rich.

This word is solid, the Lord is saying if you are one person and you want to buy all the houses and fields you can.

Expect your fields and house to be empty, we can’t be greedy glutiny does not reside in the spirit of God.

We can not be ready to take all and not concern ourselves about the concerns of others.

Strangers will come in and prosper well with your scraps, leftovers. Your ruin.

Verse 18-30

Misery to those who bring sin, with lies, and sneakyness; and wickedness like you pulling it with a cart.

To the ones who wants God to hurry so they can see his work, so they can see it.

The plan of the holy one of Israel let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Misery to the ones who are hero’s of drinking wine and champions of mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent.

Therefore as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so there roots decay.

And their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the lord Almighty and spurned the word of the holy one of Israel.

Therefore the Lord’s anger burns against his people; his hand is raised and he strikes them down.

The mountains shake; and the dead bodies are like refuge in the streets.

He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the earth.

Here they come, swiftly and speedily! Notvone of them grows tired or stumbles, not one slumbers or sleep;

Not a sandal sharp, all their arrows are sharp. All their bows are strung; their horses hooves seem like flint, their chariot wheels like a whirlwind.

Their roar like lions; they growl has they seize Their prey and carry it off with no one to rescue.

In that day they will roar over it like roaring of the sea.

And if one looks at the land, there is only darkness and distress even the sun will be darkened by clouds.

If we are going through life looking for our next drink, and living for our next drink we are searching for something missing. If we sit and listen our thirst will be quenched.

Blessings now for the important part.

If You are in need of some answers, it starts with a relationship with God our Lord and savior. Turn your bible to Roman 10:9 and cofess and believe with your mouth and heart, Jesus is Lord, he died for our sins and was raised from the did according to the Scripture. You shall be saved.

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 28

Jesus Rises from the Dead

Verse 1-10

The scripture says the sabbath day was over, it was down on the first day of the week and Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. The word says there was a powerful earthquake, an angel of the lord came down from heaven and went to the tomb. The angel rolled the stone back and sat on it. the scripture describes his body by saying it was shining like lightning and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him, they shook and became like dead men.

The word says the angel told the women not to be afraid, he knew they were looking for Jesus who was crucified The angel says; “He is not here, he has risen just as he said he would! Come see the place where he was lying. go quickly and tell his disciples. He has risen from the dead, ‘he is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him’ Now I have told you.to them

Don’t be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee. There they will see me

The women hurried away from the tomb. They were afraid, but filled with joy, they ran to tell the disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them “Greetings” he said they took hold of his feet and worshiped them. Jesus said

 

Hallelujah he has Risen! I wonder if the angel that announced that he had risen was the same angel that told Mary she was pregnant with him, and the same angel that told Joseph to get up and leave. Just a thought.

THE Guards Report to the Chief Priest

Verse 11-15

The scripture says some of the guards went into the city and they reported to the chief priest all that happened. the word says that the chief priest and elders came up with a plan to pay the guards to lie and say “the disciples came and took Jesus body while they were sleeping, and if the governor hears about this we will pay him off” The soldiers took the money and did as they were told. This story was spread all around among the jews the word says to this day.

When people stand on their lies they have to add on, they need to make sure that their image doesn’t end up making them look like the fools they are.

Jesus final orders to his disciples

Verse 16-20

The word says then the 11 disciples went to Galilee they went to the mountain that Jesus told them to go. They worshipped Jesus when they saw him but some still had their doubt. Scripture says Jesus came to them and said;

All Authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. So you must go and make disciples of all nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach to obey everything I have commanded you. and you can be sure that I am always with you to the very end.

Amen,Amen, Amen, Yes Lord. Now we go out and teach new disciples of all nations and baptize them, and teach them to obey God’s Command.

Be Blessed

 

 

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 26

Blessing everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in purpose strong and ready to overcome whatever it is that is in your path. We were built for our obstacles to our blessings, we just have to stretch for it.

Okay let’s get into the word!

Matthew Chapter 26

The plan to kill Jesus

Verse 1-5

The word says Jesus finished saying all things ( things he said in chapter 25) Then he said to the disciples;

As you know the passover feast is two days away. The son of man will be handed over to be nailed on the cross.

Then the chief priest met with the elders of the people. The met in the palace of Caiaphas, the high priest. They made plans to arrest Jesus in a clever way. They wanted to kill him. But not during the feast, they said ‘The people may stir up trouble.’

The Chief priest knew that once he messed with Jesus ,they were going to have trouble. But what we learned from the “Getting to Know Jesus Series”is that all these things must happen, to fulfill purpose.

A Woman pours perfume in Jesus

Verse 6-13

The word says; Jesus was in Bethany. He was in the home of a man named Simon, who had a skin disease. A woman came to Jesus with a special sealed jar of very expensive perfume. She poured the perfume on his head while he was at the table.

When the disciples saw what she had done the became angry, they asked her ‘ Why did you waste that? that could have made money and went to the poor people.’

Jesus was aware of this so he said;

Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. You will always have poor people with you, but you will not always have me! She poured purfume on my body to prepare me to be buried.

What I’m about to tell you is true. What she has done will be told any where this good news is preached, all over the world. It will be told in memory of her.

Everyone had their part this woman and her obedience. Her position and purpose was important she was to prepare Jesus¬†body for his burial. I can imagine that she was like ‘Father are you sure you want it on his body? well Abba clear the way, it shall be done’ These are the times when we should be in position and not doubt. If she doubted the Father’s voice, she wouldn’t have prepared Jesus¬†body for a proper burial.

Judas Agrees to hand Jesus over

Verse 15,16

The word says on of the twelve disciples went to the chief priest. His name was Juds Iscariot he asked; ‘What will you give me, if I hand Jesus over to you?’ They counted out 30 silver coins for him. From then on Judas watched for the right time to hand Jesus over to them.

Even Judas had to play his position this shows us that even if it is betrayal it has to be done. Judas betrayal unlocked Jesus next. and went his purpose was done, his life was complete.

The Lord’s Supper

Verse 17-30

The word says that it was the first day of the feast of unleavened bread. The disciples came to Jesus, they asked;

‘Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the passover meal?’

He replied.

Go into the city to a certain man. Tell him the teacher says ‘my time is near, I am going to celebrate the passover at your house with my disciples.’

The disciples did what Jesus had told them to do. They prepared the passover meal. when evening came Jesus was at the table with the twelve. while they were eating he said,

What I am about to tell you is true. One of you will hand me over to my enemies.

 

The disciples became very sad. One after the other they began to say to him. ‘It’s not I Lord, is it?

Jesus replied.

The one who has dipped his hands in the bowl with me, will hand me over. The son of man will go just as it is written about him. But how terrible it will be for the one who hands over the son of man! It would be better for him if he wasn’t born.

Judas was the one who was going to hand him over. He said, “it’s not I, Rabbi, is it?”

While they were eating Jesus took bread, He gave thanks and broke it. he handed it to his disciples and said,

Take this and eat it. This is my body”

Then he took the cup. He gave thanks and handed it to the. He said,

All of you drink from it, this is my blood of the new covenant. It is poured out to forgive the sins of many. Here is what I tell you. From now on, I won’t drink wine with you again until the day I drink it with you in my father’s kingdom.

Then they sang  hymn and went out to the mount of olives.

To know who will be the one who hands you over to your death and still break bread, and still offer communion my God. It takes discipline, the discipline that we ask Jesus to give us.

Taught a very important lesson that will have to do with our salvation to understand that in hi sacrifice he gives us apart of his to intake. he did it for us his blood was sacrificed for our sins and last here is communion.

Jesus says that peter will fall

verse 31-35

Jesus told them,

This very night you will all turn away because of me. It is written that the Lord says ‘I will strike the shepherd down’ then the sheep of the flock will be scattered. But after I rise from the dead, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.

Peter replied

“All the others may turn away because of you. But I never will.”

What I’m about to tell you is true. It will happen this very night. Before the rooster crows, you will say three times that you don’t know me.

But Peter said, “I may have to die with you, but I may never say I don’t know you” and all the other disciples said the same.

How many of us have said that we will never deny Jesus. How many of us are willing to profess our love for Jesus Christ. It’s when we are up against someone who is against God and someone willing to persecute you for loving Jesus that you will truly¬†know what you would do. Are you willing to shout on the mountain top that he is Lord, without caring if someone called you a holy roller, or a church lady or Church man.

Jesus prays in Gethsemane 

Verse 36-46

The word says, Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane. He said to them.

Sit here while I go over there and pray

He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him. He began to be sad and troubled, then he said to them,

My soul is very sad, I feel close to death. Stay here, keep watch with me.

He went a little further, then fell with his face to the ground. he prayed

My Father, if it is possible take this cup of suffering away from me. But let what you want be done. not what I want.

Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping

Couldn’t you men watch with me for one hour?

He asked

Peter! watch and pray. Then you won’t fall in to sin, when you are tempted. The spirit is willing but the body is weak.

Jesus went away a second time. He prayed,

My father, if it is possible for this cup to be taken away? But if I must drink it, may what you want be done.

Jesus came back again and saw that the disciples were sleeping. They couldn’t keep their eyes open. He left them and went away once more, for the third time. He prayed the same thing. aathen he returned to the disciples. He said,

Are you still sleeping and resting? Look the hour is near. The son of man is about to be handed over to sinners. Get up! Let us go, here comes the one who is handing me over to them.

Sometimes we know what maybe ahead us but it can be so troubling that we may need to stay in God’s presence and continued prayer to build the strength. Those around us can’t comfort us, Jesus looked to his disciples to comfort him stay with him but they couldn’t stay awake. The Father was the only one who could comfort Jesus at that moment in his life.

Jesus is betrayed and arrested

Verse 47-55

The scripture says while Jesus was speaking Judas one of the twelve, arrived with a large crowd armed with swords and clubs. they were sent by the chief priest and elders of the people. The betrayer had arranged a signal with them; “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him” going at once to Jesus, Judas said “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him. Jesus replied,

Friend, do what you came for.

The men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. With that, one of Jesus companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest cutting off his ear.

Put your sword back in it’s place, for all who drew the sword will die by the sword. Do you think I can not call on my father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then will the scriptures be fulfilled that say ‘it must in this way?

At that time Jesus said to the crowd,

am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me. Everyday I sat in the temple courts teaching and you didn’t arrest me. But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.

 

In all of this Jesus knew his purpose and was ready to confirm the word of the prophets. Are we ready to walk in the scriptures? Pray like Daniel? Faith like David? Jesus walked in the Scripture of the Son of man spoken by the prophets, to allow flesh to win at that moment wasn’t happening. Another thing to look at is when Jesus says ” you don’t think if I call my father he wouldn’t send more than twelve legion angels?” The next time your battling something expect God to send his legion angels if you should need it. It’s because of Jesus that we have that right. Lord Jesus I am truly in debt to you, you paid the ransom to free my soul. Hallelujah!!

Caiaphas Question Jesus

Verse 57-68

The scripture says when Jesus was arrested he was taken to Caiaphas. The high priest, teachers of the law and elders where gathered there. Peter followed at a distances right to the courtyard of the high priest. The word says he sat down with the guards to see what was going to happen.

The Chief priest and Sanhedrin were looking for some false allegations against Jesus. But they couldn’t find anything, they did have many false witnesses. Then finally two came forward saying Jesus said “He was able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.”

That’s when the high priest asked Jesus if he was going to answer the testimony that was against him. But Jesus remained silent. the high priest said to Jesus, “I charge you under oath by the living God; tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God?”

Yes, it is as you say

Jesus replied;

But I say to you; In the future you will see the son of man sitting at the right hand of the mighty on and coming on the clouds of heaven.

The high priest tore his clothes and said

“You have spoken blasphemy! why do we need any more witnesses? look now you have heard blasphemy, what do you think?”

“He is worthy of death” they answered. They began to spit in his face, and struck him with their fists, others slapped him and said, “Prophesy to us, Christ who hit you?”

When we are faced with hate, anger, frustration¬†from others. yes the easiest thing to do, would be to attack back. Let’s remember the easiest thing usually comes from our flesh. It’s best to remain silent and not respond. saying yes to God and your eternity. sitting with Jesus and brringing others with us is our goal.

At times some will have to endure more pain than others, but it is their faithfulness to the Father that allowed them to stand strong, As Jesus did.

Peter denies knowing Jesus

Verse 69-75

The word says peter was still in the courtyard and a servant girl came up to him and said. “You also was with Jesus of Galilee!” but he denied it in front of everyone. “I don’t know what your talking about.” peter replied back, then he went out to the gateway, where another girl saw him and said to the people there. “This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth!”¬† he denied it again, with an oath “I don’t know the man!” After a while the people standing around peter said “Surely, you are one of them, yout r accent gives you away.” Then he began to¬† call down curses on himself and he swore to them. “I don’t know that man!” Immediately the rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the words Jesus had spoken,

Before the rooster crows,you will disown me three times.

he went outside and wept.

Even Peter had to fulfill his part. Another reminder that God confirms the word of his servant.

I remember as a young christian who hadn’t really understood scripture yet, this part made me so angry with Peter. But now that I’m older I am realizing that may have been the hardest thing. Knowing what they were putting Jesus through and then to have a selfish war with your flesh and your flesh wins. at this very moment Peter Loved himself more than he Loved God. Fearing losing his life and being tortured¬†he decided to deny Jesus. In that the scripture was fulfilled Jesus word was confirmed. and Peters life was preserved for the next, the things that was still left to do.

Lets get in to the word of God!

Matthew Chapter 24

Jesus teaches on the Mount of Olives

Verse 1-25

The word says; then Jesus went out and left from the temple his disciples came up to show him the building of the temple.

Jesus said;

Did you not see all the things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another that shall not be thrown down.

The word says as Jesus sat quietly on the mount of Olive the disciples came to him privately and asked;

“When will these things be? And what will be the sum of your coming; and of the end of age?”

Jesus answered

Take head that no one deceives you. For many saying I am the Christ and will deceive many.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it you are not alarmed. Such things must happen but the end is still to come.

Nations will rise against nations, and kingdims against kingdoms. There will be famine and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from faith amd will betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.

Because of the increase of wickedness the love of most will grow cold. But he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel, let the reader understand. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of his house. Let know one in the fields, go back to get his cloak.

How dreadful it will ne in those days for pregnant women, and nursing mothers. Pray that your flight will not take place in winter, or the sabbath, for then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now, and never to be equal again.

If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time, if anyone says to you, look here is Christ! Or there he is! Do not believe it, for false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform greatsigns and miracles to decieve even the elect if that was possible. See, I told you ahead of time.

The Lord is warning us, there will be a day where false Christ, false prophets and false any position of teaching will come.

It will be our discernment that guides us.

We will have to develop and work on our relationship with God, to know and believe that all confusion will come to an end, and not everyone will like you and some will plot and try to destroy you.

Be still in God.

Jesus tells about his return

Verse 26 -35

So if anyone tells you, ‘He is for out in the desert, do not go out there. Or if anyone says ‘je is deep inside the house, do not believe it. Lighting that comes from the east can be seen in the west.

It will be the same, when the son of man comes. The vultures will gather wherever there is a dead body.

Right after the terrible suffering of those days, The sun will be darkened

The moon will not shine. The stars will fall from the sky.

The heavenly bodies will be shaken. ‘At that time the sign of the son of man will appear in the sky. All the nations on earth will be sad.’

They will see the son of man coming on the clouds of the sky. He will cime with power and a great Glory.

He will send his angels with a loud trumpet call. They will gather his chosen people from all four directions. They will bring them from one end of heaven to the other.

Learn a lesson from the fig tree as soonas it’s twigs get tender and it’s leaves come out, you know that summer is near. It is right at the door.

What I’m about to tell you is true. The people living at that time will certainly not pass away, until all those things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

The word tells us not to believe those that come in and say the are Jesus.

The Lord tells us that when He returns you will see all kinds of miracles, signs, and wonders and this you can believe necause heaven and Earth can disappear but His word will still remain standing.

The day and hour are not known

Verse 36- 48

No one knows about that day or hour. Not even the angels in heaven know. The son doesn’t know, only the Father.

Remember how it was in the days of Noah. It will be the same when the Son of Man comes.

In the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking. They were getting married. They were giving there daughters away to be married. They did all those things right up to the day Noah entered the Ark.

They knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be when the Son of Man comes.

Two men will be in the field. One will be taken amd the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill, one will be taken the other left.

So keep watch. You do not know what day your Lord will come. You must understand something;

Suppose the owner of the house knew what time of the night the robber was coming. Then he would have kept watch, he would not have let his house be broken into.

So you also must be ready, the Son of man will come at the hour you don’t expect.

Suppose a master puts one of his servants in charge of the other servant’s in his house. The servant’s job is to give them their food at the right time. The master wants a faithful, wise servant for this. It would ne good for the servant if the master finds him doing his job, when the master returns. What I’m about to tell you is true. Tje master will put that servant in charge of everything he owns.

But suppose that servant is evil. Suppose he says to himself, my master is staying away a longtime, suppose he eats and drinks with those who drinks too much.

The master of that servant will come back on a day the servant didnt expect him. He will return at an hour the servant doesn’t know. Then the master will cut him to pieces. He will send him to the place where pretenders go. There people will sob and grind their teeth.

Amen! The Lord tells us that we have to be ready and waiting for his return.

Do not sleep, because even he doesn’t know when he will return. Only the father.

As we go on our journey here on Earth lets remember that we don’t know when Jesus is coming back. Let’s act as if he is right around the corner.

Lets get in to the word of God!

Matthew Chapter 23

Verse 1 – 12

Jesus Judges the Pharisees and the Teachers of the law

The word says then Jesus spoke to multitudes and his disciples saying;

Scribes and pharisees sit in Moses seat.

Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do. But di not do according to their works, for they say and do not do.

For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them down on men’s shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

Bit all their works, they di to ‘be seen by men’. They make their phylacteries nroad and enlarhe the borders of their garments.

They love the best places at feast, the best seats in the synagogues.

Greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called Rabbi, Rabbi.

But you do not be called Rabbi; for one is your teacher, the Christ and you are all brethrens.

Do not call anyone on earth father; for one is your father, he who is in heaven.

And do not be called teacher, for one is your teacher, the Christ.

But he who is greater among you, shall be your servant.

And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted.

Amen, when I was typing out this verse I tought about how most people arr not going to church because they feel as if it’s now a gathering for hypocrites.

I think at times people want to pick what they want from the bible.

When I started my righteousness walk, I heard people say things like that’s my spiritual mother, that’s my spiritual father.¬†While we are on Earth, we are making away for our heavenly treasures. The Lord says don’t bother calling someone else father or teacher they are your brethren, learning right with you they may know more, and so you share but know this. If that person is exalted here on earth in heaven they will be the servant.

This is something for people that feel as if they know everything, and that certainly can be me at sometimes. If first will be last, and last will be first. Then the one who wants to be better than others and be in charge will have to learn how to serve. And for those who served here on earth will unlock treasures it’s all about your eternity.

Also don’t be so quick to want to teach someone something and not bother learning the lesson your self, just because you wanted a name deacon, pastor, prophet, apostle. Try unlocking it in heaven and on earth stand in service as equal as God has placed us.

Jesus Condemns the religious leaders

Verse 13- 36

But woe to you, scribes and pharisees hypocrites!

For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men. For you neither go in yourself nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

Woe to the scribes and pharisees hyoocrites!

For you devour widows houses, and or pretense make long prayers, therefore you will receive greater condemnation.

Woe to you, scribes and pharisees hypocrites!

For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte and when he os won, you makr him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

Woe to you, blind guides, who say, “whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple; he is obliged to perdorm it.

Fools and blind! Fir which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold?

And, whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, if oblhed to perform it.

Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gifts?

There fore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and all things on it.

He who swears by the temple, swears by it and him who dwells in it.

And he who swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who sits on it.

Woe to the scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: Justice mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.

Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel.

Woe to you scribes and pharisees, hypocrites!

For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, bit inside they are full of extortion and self indulgence.

Blind pharisees, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish that the outside of them may be clean also.

Woe to you, scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! for you are¬† like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

Woe to you scribes, pharisees, Hypocrites! because you built the tombs of prophets. Adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had lived¬† in the days of our fathers we would not have been partakers with them in the¬† blood of the prophets’.

Therefore you are witnesses against yourselves that you are the son of those who murdered the prophets.Fill up then, the measure of your fathers guilt. Serpents brood of viper, how can you escape the condemnation of hell?

Therefore indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your in you synagogues and persecute from city to city.

That on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the Earth, from the blood of Zechariah son  of Berechiah whom you murdered between the temple and the alter.

Assuredly I say to you all those things will come upon this generation.

Amen! The Lord speaks to the Scribes and Pharisees about their inward behavior, about teaching one way and doing another. About cleaning the outside and still being dirty inside.

In our righteous walk we can be stuck on what people see on the outside and so engulfed in our cover up, that we have forgotten about our inside. I call it the perfect family syndrome. you know , when you tell everyone to smile land act right but in the house everyone is fighting and dealing with regret, animosity, and family hurt.

Well Jesus is saying as teachers, preachers, ministers, prophets we must be careful¬†to keep our insides clean. Building our relationship with God everyday, fighting our flesh not only in the open but also in the house, in our minds. Those corners need to be clean as well as the door frames to our spirits, need to be wiped down. The things that you think people don’t see. God does sees.

Your eternity depends on it. The Lord says in these verses just because you are teaching Gods law your still going to be condemned to hell. Even worse, because now your teaching one thing and then displaying another. This is just teaching the people that are on the inside with you ( student) that they can do it as well, and because you say your the teacher then the person who doesn’t know any better will go to hell, but the teacher will be closer to the fire.

Jesus grieves over Jerusalem again

verse 37-39

O’Jerusalem, O’Jerusalem the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together¬† as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings but you were not willing. See! your house is left to you desolate, for I say to you, you shall see me no more till you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

If we take these words and apply it as if we are Jerusalem. we have done things disrespectful¬†to God’s law’s and commands. and the Lord is saying I want to just take your children under my wing, but you won’t let me. your life and going down, and I am not going to come back until you come to me, until you acknowledge who I am.

Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.
Matthew Chapter 22

Verse 1-14

Jesus told them more stories He said,

Here is what the kingdom of heaven is like. A king prepared a wedding dinner for his son.

he sent his servants to those who had been invited to the dinner. The servants told them to come but they refused.

Then he sent some more servants. He said ‘tell those that were invited that I have prepared my dinner. I have killed my oxen and fattest cattle. Everything is ready, come to the wedding dinner.’

But people paid no attention,. One went away to his field. another went to his business. The rest grabbed his servants. They treated them badly and then killed them.

The king became very angry. He sent his army to destroy the murderers and burned their city.

Then the king said to his servant. The wedding banquet is ready, but those that I invited didn’t deserve to come. Go to the street corners and invite anyone you can find.’

So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find both good and bad and the wedding hall was filled with guest.

But when the king came in to see the guest he noticed a man who wasn’t wearing any clothes.

The King asked,

‘Friend, how did you get in here without wearing any clothes?’ the man was speechless.

Then the king told the attendants, ‘tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, for many are invited, but feww are chosen.’

*gnashing- grinding, gritting

This scripture was right on time. As I am preparing for today’s Journey in Praise Reflections, the question is; what do we serve?

This scripture has taught me, we don’t just serve the word of God to people. The king is having a wedding banquet and he tells his servants go on the street corners, the internet, and bring all the people you can find, good or bad.

Some will not make it in, but those who will come ready and willing. The question that we need to ask ourselves on our Journey is “Am I living for my eternity”
Religious leaders question Jesus about paying Taxes

Verse 15-22

The eord says then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. They sent their disciples to him along with Herodains.

“Teacher, we know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are. Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to caesar or not?” The pharisees disciples asked Jesus.

But Jesus knowing their evil intent, said,

You hypocrites! Why are you trying to trap me?

Show me the coin used for paying the tax.

The brought him a denarius and he asked them

Who’s portrait is this? Who’s inscription?

“Caesar’s” they replied

Then Jesus said

Give to caesar what is Caesar’s, and give to God what is God’s.

When they heard this they were amazed. They left him amd went away.

What are you taking?

As I went over this scripture verses, my spirit reminded me of my prayers.

“Lord remove pride and flesh wants from me.”

When walking in righteousness we should be giving God what is his.

The people that we serve the word of God to, there spirit man is what we are bringing to the king. Are we taking the credit?

We are bot the ones who save people, we are the vessels that are used to get them there.

Bringing a spirit to walk along a righteous path is like paying your taxes to God, giving to him what is his.

Giving a person us via our time, our word is not going to give them what their spirit needs.

Religious leaders question Jesus about resurrection

Verse 23-33

The word says; the sameday the saducees who were saying there was no resurrection came and asked him.

“Teacher, Moses told us that if a man dies without children his brother must marry his widow and have children for him. Now there is seven brothers among us the first one marroed and died, and since he had no children he left his wife to his brother. The samething happen with the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. Finally the woman died. At the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her.”

Jesus replied;

You are in error because you do not know the scriptures or power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be guven in marriage, they will be like angels in heaven. But about the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what God said to you,I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?

He is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

The wors says when the crowds heard this they were astonished at his teachings.

The Lord is the God of the living, our spirits keep moving going on to our next, after our spirit man has been built.

Our spirit being resurrected to the next. Our spirit rise to our eternity.

Religious leaders question Jesus about the greatest commandment

Verse 34-40

The word says that when the pharisees learned that Jesus silenced the saducees, they got together.

The word says the expert among them tested Jesus amd asked him.

“Teacher what is the greatest commandmentbib the law?”

Jesus answered;

You shall love the lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and your mind. This is the first and great commandment.

And second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself.

On these two commandments hang all the law amd prophets

The word says while the Pharisees were together Jesus asked them;

What do you think about the Christ? Who’s son is He?

They anwered him

“The son of David”

Jesus then asked them,

How is is that in spirit David calls him Lord saying

‘The Lord said to my Lord “sit at my right hand till I made your enemies your footstool.”

If David calls him Lord, how is He his son?

The word says no one was able to answer him and that was the last day they questioned him.

Love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself.

The firsr commandment is easy to alot of us, but what about the second?

Are you willing to give up your eternity to dislike, insult, or hate someone.

Some people can make it hard to love them through their ugly but the truth where tgere is ugly, God is missing.

We have to be ready to pray a person through their ugly with our faith. Our hearts, and love should be petitioning a request to God on their behalf

Today take the time to ask God to allow you the ability to love your neighbor pass their outer layer.

It is in him that we are moving in that second commandment in truth
