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 9

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your righteous walk. It can sometimes seem like you are going through a lot of things and it may even feel like they are hitting you all at once. when life hits like that, it is time to hide in the presence of the Lord.

I have come to learn that when it’s hitting me hard, the Lord is trying to get my attention. for the intercessors that means going into prayer more often. For the prophets and the teachers it may mean studying the word a bit more deeper.

Whatever the deeper is, the most valuable part is the unlock that comes from it. God is waiting to recover what was destroyed as he did Manasseh, but first we must go to him and be ready to change the things that he wants to change.

To the followers thank you for your support you are appreciated! If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog, thanks for stopping by. If you are led please follow so that you can get notifications of new blog posts. Let me introduce myself!

Isaiah Chapter 9

verse 1- 7

The Lord continues to tell Isaiah the gloom will not be on her (the land) who is distressed, as when it was first had taken over the land of Zebulon and the land of Naphtali heavily oppressed people lived by the sea, beyond the Jordan, in Galilee of the gentiles.

The people who were in darkness (oppressed, depressed, and did not hear or see God) have seen a great light those who stayed in the land of the shadow of death, would see the light upon them. the nations will multiply the joy will increase. they will celebrate over their harvest. The yoke of their burdens will be broken and the staff of their shoulders, the rod of their oppressors like when Gideon blew his trumpet, for all the blood that was shed God will set flame (rebuke) of fire.

To us a child will be born a son given and the government will be on his shoulders his name will be called wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, prince of peace. From the increase of his government and peace there will be no end, on the throne of David there will be no end to order it and establish it with judgement and justice for that time on, even forever the zeal of the Lord of host will perform this.

 

In these verses Isaiah tells the people of what will come from the darkness to light. This word applied to our lives tell us that we will go through things in our lives and there will and can be darkness then comes Jesus, and we call him wonderful, counselor,mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of peace.

When there is no way, then comes God making away, because he loves us so much! showing us how wonderful he is, how mighty he is in our lives, and if we listen, how well he can counsel us. The peace that he will bring us, will bring everlasting life to us.

Verse 8-17

The verses says the Lord sent a word against Jacob and it all fell on Israel. The people of Ephraim and Samaria will know it. They will say the bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with stone. The sycamores are cut down, but we will replace them with cedars. Therefore the Lord raises Ephraim adversaries. from Rezin and spurs their enemies on. The Syrians before  and the Philistines after and they shall devour Israel with an open mouth. For all his anger is not turned away, but his hand is still stretched out.

Yet the people do not turn to Him who strikes them, nor do they seek the Lord of host.

Therefore the Lord will cut off head and tail from Israel palm branch and bulrush in one day. The elder and the honorable is the head. The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail. The leaders of the people cause them to fumble and the ones who are led by them will be destroyed.

The Lord will have no joy in their young man and no mercy on the fatherless and widows, because everyone is hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks foolishness and with all of this he’s angry but He still willing to help.

Even when we fail to give  God the glory he’s still right there waiting on us, and even if you didn’t know any better he’s still going to destroy the one who taught you.

This word is important for the impostors teaching and speaking, on their will, and according to their word’s. Leaving out Gods Glory in what he is doing and speaking on their own emotions and not the spirit of the Lord.

Taking on leadership positions, places us in a position that influences people. How we influence the people will be how God deals with us.

As believers in Christ we must realize that if we are not operating in the Holy Spirit and we are trying to move the body of Christ, it’s not going to work, God is going to destroy what is not good. When we move and  the Holy Spirit  is not in it, it becomes a self made, self recognized, self ruled thing.

We can not act out God’s orders or give him the glory if we are allowing ourselves to get in the way. This leads us to get in the way of the purpose of others. leading them in the wrong direction.

Verse 18-21

Isaiah tells the people that the Lord says wickedness burns like a fire, it consumes briars and thorns it even sets the forest thickets ablaze and mount up like rising smoke, by the wrath of God ( the word is the God of host “Armies) the land is burned up and the people shall be in fuel for the fire, no man shall snatch on the right hand and be hungry, he shall devour the left hand and not be satisfied. Every man will eat the flesh of his own arm.

Manasseh will devour Ephraim and Ephraim will devour Manasseh together they will be against Judah, and with all this His anger isn’t turned away and still his hand is stretched out

The verses starts by saying the day will come when wicked burns, is devoured  this being because of the Lord’s wrath. The people shall be the fuel for the burning land. 

What we do will determine what will happen. This word is for a people that did not give God the Glory, this word was for a people who were so busy Idolizing, and being told to idolize. Even in hardship they did not say Lord why are you punishing me. They said “I have to do it better, I have to get more” 

In a day where we have so many television Apostles, Prophets, Ministers we must keep in mind of this word, hold it like the warning it is.

The Lord wants the people to know that he will turn away, they will go through hardship, they will see and fuel His fire.

Verse 16; we are warned about leading in lies, and so we will be brought to repentance. 

As I was writing this blog I was led to go deeper into the study of Ephraim and Manasseh. while I was studying I learned that Manasseh was held captive by the Assyrian king and was tortured until he repented and was recovered, when he did he abandoned his Idolatry ways.

God destroys and then he builds. He will bring us through somethings, so  that we learn our lessons. He will turn from us and stretch out his hands, and then send help to build us up. 

Jesus was sent just for this reason

Israel had become an Idolatry people, doing evil in the eyes of God. They stop walking in faith and trying to be pleasing to God the had stopped believing God for all their needs. 

When we apply the word from these verses we know that no matter how we want to cover it up, when we bring things in the natural that is from our own will and we bring them to God and to His people we must be ready to see it destroyed.

It’s not your ministry, it’s Gods; it’s not your church, it’s God!

Blessings if you want to began a relationship with the Lord of host and you want to see what he can do in your life then turn your bible; download the free bible app; or google Romans 10:9 and If you say with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead than you will be Saved.

Get yourself into a bible based church, find a Holy Spirit filled group to fellowship with and let the Lord move and destroy all that is not of him and for your good.

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.

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

Isaiah Chapter 3

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you are standing firm in life. There are times when we feel as if God has turned his back. Some may even feel like as if he doesn’t even like them. I find myself thinking those are the most powerful spirits being held down.

The ones he loves the most has it hard, so stand strong, the one who loves you always finds a way for restoration.

Isaiah Chapter 3

Judgement on Jerusalem and Judah

Verse 1-23

Isaiah continues from chapter 2 saying; the almighty Lord is about to take supply and support from Jerusalem and Judah, which includes Food, water, soldiers, judges, prophets, soothsayer, elders, counselors, craft men, clever encounters, and honorable men.

The Lord says; he will make boys the officials, children will direct them. People will oppress each other, man against man, neighbor against neighbor, the young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable.

A man will forcibly get his brother at his father’s house, and tell him that he is in charge of the disaster, and he will cry that he can’t fix it. He will say; he has no food or clothes, he will beg not to be put in charge.

Jerusalem will stagger and Judah will fall, they will speak and do things against God. Defying his glorious presence. They parade around not even trying to hide their sin. Misery to them, they brought disaster to themselves.

Let the righteous know they will be okay, they will enjoy the fruits of their deeds. Misery to the wicked! Disaster is on them they will be paid back for what their hands have done. Young people oppress my people, women rule over them, my people your guides lead you away, then turn you from your path.

The Lord says; The women of Zion are arrogant, walking around proud of themselves. Worried about their gold, hair, and face. The Lord says; he will bring sores on their on their heads and make them bald.

In that day the Lord will take their treasure of beauty enhancers.

Amen! This really has me thinking and it convicted me a bit, we can not walk around here more concerned about what we have and how to get more to make ourselves look good searching for praise from others, even wanting some to envy them and then all about God. Put God before all that other stuff, he is the reason you were able to get it, he is the reason for your beauty.

Verse 24-26 

The Lord says; Instead of sweet smells you’ll stink, instead of a sash you will have a rope, instead of long pretty hair, you will be bald, instead of nice clothes  you will have turn rags, and instead of beauty, you will be branding. Your men will fall by the sword, our warriors in battle.

The gates of zion will be in grief and mourn empty and deserted. She shall sit on the gound

When we are so self centered, God has a way of humbling us. take the moment to chin check your spirit. . I know I did. It just makes sense that we stand with the righteous. I don’t want any grief, so I rather the Lord to just go on a head and deal with that for me. I will walk by faith.

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. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer. Let’s get into the word!

Matthew chapter 11

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in faith, and knowing that God is shifting you in the places your suppose to be.

Even if it doesn’t look like what you expect it to, God sees further than your eyes.

To my followers thanks for joining in I appreciate you guys so much.

If you were scrolling and came across this blog. Thanks for stopping by, let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy

and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve is writing this blog and as the founder of Journey and praise ministry. I serve as a intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint prayer wall. If you would like to add your name you can email me at Fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com

Another way that I serve is as an encourager and baord member of Walk It Out Ministries. Okay lets get into the word

Matthew Chapter 11

Verse 1 – 6

The word of the Lord says that after Jesus finished commanding his disciples he went out to teach and preach in their cities.

The word says when John heard about this in the prison, he sent two of his disciples to see Jesus.

When Gods disciples came to Jesus they asked him if he was the one they were to find or should they keep looking.

The word says Jesus answered and said Go and tell John the things that you hear and see.

” the blind receive their sight the lame walk the leper clean and tge deaf hear the dead rise amd the poor preached to. And blessing to those that are not offended by me.”

If we all can walk through life saying blessings to all who are not offended by the God in me.

The Lord works in all the power that he commanded in the disciples in chapter 10. Jesus told us in that chapter that we can do what the teacher does but we can not be greater than the teacher.

So expect to have the power ti heal the sick, raise the dead, hearing to the deaf. What happens when you actually do tap into those commands with your faith.

Verse 7 – 19

In these verses it tells us that after Johns disciples left, the Lord began to speak about John.

Jesus begins to tell the people that people didnt go to the wilderness looking for a will dressed man, they went to the wilderness to see a prophet.

Jesus goes on to tell the people that since John the Baptist the kingdom has been advancing with force. And forceful people are taking hold of it.

Jesus goes to explain to the people that John is the one who fulfilled the prophesy the one that made the way.

The Lord goes on to say for those who are willing to accept John is the Elijah who was supposed to come.

V16

The Lord sayd people now are like children in the market looking for others to pay attention.

When John came and he did not eat or drink they said he had a demon, the son of man came eatting and drinking they said he was a gluttonous man. The Lord says wisdom is justified by her children. ( Those who act wisely prive wisdom is right)

Glory be to God these verses reminds me that no matter what God has placed others before us to make a way and he will keep on until he gets to his design.

People are so busy looking for a reaction from others for every move they makr or I should say we make. But expect that when you are busy looking for God people will find everything wrong.

John fasted and thw said he had a demon, Jesus ate and hung out with non righteous people and he was called gluttonous and a winebibber.

No matter what you do the people are only going to see what they want, let it be about the works that you do.

Verse 20-30

The Lord tells the people that had seen the miracles he preformed and still lived in sin that the towns and people that are no longer exist would still have it better than them because they would have at least mourned.

The Lord goes on to praise the father for giving sight of what he desires to the little children

Jesus reminds us that the father knows the son and the son chooses to make others known to the father

Jesus calls on all who are tired and carrying a heavy load. Leting them know that he will give them rest.

He called to the people to come and be hos servants and to learn from him. They eould find rest in him. In a service that is easy and light.

Amen! We learned in chapter 10 that a disciple shall pack light and not trouble themselves about what to preach on. In these verses the Lord says come to me it will be easy and light.

When we work for God we must remember that there isn’t a burden. The Lord has said he’s carrying that you just go and wait for instructions. If you get none keep doing what you have been doing.

Be Blessed

Blessing everyone,

 

As we are moving forward I pray that you all are seeking God, accepting others, and walking with the holy spirit.

Matthew Chapter 7

Jesus Teaches about Criticizing others

Verse 1- 6

Jesus teaches us, do not judge or we will be judged with the same measure of judgement that you used to judge. The Lord says we can’t look at the little things about others and criticize them and we have bigger things blocking our vision.

The Lord shows us that we can’t judge walking around crittizeing others when we are showing someone that something is not right, we should be standing in position as a helper not as a demolition. It is important that we are uplifting each other toward God.

 

Verse 7 -12

Jesus Teaches about Asking, Seeking, knocking

Jesus tells us ask and it will be given to us, seek and we will find, knock and the door will be open to you. Everyone who does these things shall receive.

Jesus askes who is Gods son and ask for bread and get stone. Our ask for a fish and be given a snake? Jesus tells us that the Father in heaven gives good gifts to those who ask him. The Lord says in everything so unto others what you would have them do to you. This is said by the Law and the Prophets.

It’s important to our spirit that we do right by the people that come into our lives. We should allow ourselves to not walk around wishing misery on each other. We should be able to see that we all are trying to move forward in life. We all are out for the greater good even though the good to many are different it’s important to know that we all desire it which means that there is no need to want someone else to fail or need.

If we can help in our time, finances if God has already sent you an overflow be ready to spread that over flow so that others may be able to have a little in their cup. Remember a cup that overflows end up wasting what if you don’t pour it into another glass.

 

Verse 13 &14

Jesus Teaches about the Way to Heaven

Jesus teaches us that if we want to head into destruction we would go the road that has many people and large options but if we want to get in to heaven there’s only one way and few take that road.

The walk as a believer is a walk of discipline and relationship. It takes lots of patience to stand and walk righteously a relationship with God puts us in a place that we are seeking him and when we stand in that place challenges will come and test your faith to allow you to build another level of faith in God. Many will try to fit through that gate but it takes humbleness to be able to fit and continue walking. Knowing God provides all and we when we are tempted still keep moving in what God has instructed. The word says

“don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

When we are weak in faith as soon as a stress factor comes with tomorrows worry we seem to try to fall off the narrow road and try to find our own path.

Verse 15-20

Jesus Teaches about Fruit in People’s Lives

Jesus warns us to watch out for false prophets, they come like wolves in sheep clothing. Pay attention to their fruit. Every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit.

Especially in this day you can scroll Facebook and find many people with the title Prophet before their names. Take the time to sit and speak with God before you run and do what they are telling you that “God said” look around them and see what God is moving in their life. Remember everything that comes from God is good.

Verse 21-29

Jesus Teaches about Those Who Build Houses on Rock and Sand.

Jesus says you can cry out Lord, Lord and still not get into heaven. Only those who do the will of the Father in heaven will get there.
“They may say didn’t I prophesy in your name and drive out demons and perform miracles in your name. and I will say to them get away from me you evil doers.”

Jesus tells us that if we listen to his words and put them in practice it is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The storm came and the house did not move. But the ones who hears the words and doesn’t put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The storm can and the house fell with a great crash.

The word says when Jesus was done teaching the crowd was amazed because he spoke with authority and not a teacher.

We must remember to apply the word of God to our lives this is important. We stand on the word of God that is solid ground if you don’t apply a practice of faith and righteous living you cannot think that you will stand strong in the tough times.

You cannot turn your back on God when the sun is up and then when the rain starts to get heavy you scream Lord, Lord. We cannot be hypocrites; our walk should place us in the position to want the Heavenly Father to have a smile on his face because he knows that we are strong in faith because we practice I every day. He has been training us for a time like this. What are you going to do in the storm be the light on the night stand or be the light under the night stand.

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. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Matthew Chapter 6

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going forth with full power, not half power but full power. When we walk in faith, we are walking with God, we are allowing God to led us in to everyplace that he knows that we will soar in. So today where ever God is leading you please go forth in the full power that God has gifted you in.

To the followers of from Sinner to saint Blog welcome thanks for joining me in bible study, you all are so very much appreciated.

If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog on WordPress, twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, welcome thanks for joining. If you are led please click the like or follow button so that you can receive notification of new post as they come in. Let me introduce myself!

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, some of the ways that I servenew-journey-in-praise-flyer is as the founder of From Sinner to Saint Blog and prayer wall (If you have a request you can send an email to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com) I also serve as the founder of Journey in Praise Ministry http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com . 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 6

Jesus Teaches about giving to the needy

Verse 1- 4

Jesus Teaches us to be careful not to display our righteous acts, for everyone to see. The word says If you do, you will have no reward from your father in heaven. The Lord says be sure not to announce your charitable deeds with trumpets like the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. The Lord says when you give to the needy, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving maybe in secret. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

 

Praise God, this verse is very important especially in this day. I have scrolled on Facebook and seen videos of people feeding the homeless and just had to press record.  When we have been moved in our heart to do something for someone else and we have the means to do that thing. The Lord says that it is important that we go forth in secret if you press play for a praise from others then you have been rewarded already.

You can’t serve two gods so either you go forth and get the praise from man, or you go forth and allow the lord to open the storehouse and pour out your reward. I don’t know about you but if I am obeying the Lord by helping someone who needs me then I don’t want the praise of man, because the praise isn’t for us it’s for God who gave us the means to provide what was needed.

Verse 5 – 15

Jesus Teaches about Prayer

Jesus has spoken to us about praying, we are told not to go and pray standing out in other places, but to go to a room, close the door, and pray to your father, who is unseen. Then your father sees what you have done in secret, he will reward you. Jesus says and when you pray do not keep babbling like pagans, because they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them for your father knows what you need before you ask him. Jesus says this is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts,

Has we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

Jesus says If you forgive men who sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive your sins.

 

The word tells us that when we pray go to a quiet place so that you can hear the Lord. When we are in church and we are in the street we pray in fellowship but we should be spending personal time with God.

Jesus shows how to begin our prayers. When we pray we are saying, Our father in heaven Holy is your name. we are asking God to lead us by his will on this earth as he has placed in heaven. God places us high, we place ourselves low. Anything that we would like to have God wants us to have better. we cannot even imagine the things that we could have. I am not only talking about material, if you are going to God for material things then you are going for the things that you idealize. I’m talking about better spiritually because you can have all the material things that you desire and still feel empty. You want peace of mind in a beautiful place, you want to be filled with the glory of God and your overflow will surround you. We want God to give us our instruction for the day, our daily lessons. We want the father to forgive us for the things that we owe him. Forgive us for not spending time with him, forgive us for not following his law, forgive us for not listening to his instructions. when we don’t deposit in to the storehouse how can we expect to have a bountiful overflow when the lord opens the storehouse (If you want to know more about the storehouse, go to Deuteronomy chapter 28). We make a covenant to forgive those who take away from us, forgive those that owe us. We ask God to not lead into temptation, but keep us from evil.

Anything that you want from the Father he already knows, he knows all things, so while we have finished the begin of the prayer, we are to be ready to praise him for already fixing it. Our faith is knowing that everything that comes our way has already been fixed and prepped better.

we can’t go around thinking we are too good to forgive someone who has wronged us, and expect God to forgive us. We should be ready to say if you did this to me or that to me, then you must have been fighting a spiritual battle that you lost. I am not mad at you, I will offer pray for your strength the next time your spirit goes to war.

 

Verse 16 – 18

Jesus teaches about fasting

Jesus tells us that when we fast, don’t walk around looking somber to show people that you are fasting. Jesus says when you are fasting put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it is not obvious to men that you are fasting, but to the Father, and he sees what you have done and he will reward you.

We should not be walking around looking distressed and hungry when we are fasting. When we are fasting, we are in God’s presence and we should not be worried about who knows that we are fasting. Your fast isn’t about others it is about you and God. Now if you are led to have a group fast, you’re not going to be walking around like it is the worst thing you ever done, and you can’t wait to be finished. You should be walking with the glory of God on you.

 

Verse 19-24

Jesus teaches about money

Jesus teaches not to horde the treasures that is of this earth, but to horde the treasures of heaven. Because where your treasures are, your heart will be

 

 No need to rush out to get new things to put on display, do not need to break our back to make money to have the best of everything for ourselves. when we are more worried about making money for ourselves we are busy in selfishness. We are not busy for the spiritual purposes, matter of fact we are so busy on our hustle for more money, more things, that we let days, weeks, months go by before we spent time with God. We lose focus on what the true treasure is, like I said earlier you can have all the material things and the best of them but if you  aren’t linked to God your spirit is still going to feel empty, you’re in debt with God.

 

Verse 25 – 33

Jesus Teaches about Worry

Jesus tells us not to worry about food and clothes, Jesus askes us; isn’t your life and your body more important than food and clothes? Jesus reminds us to look at the birds, they do not sow, reap, or store, and doesn’t the Father provide for them, aren’t you more valuable to him than they are? Jesus asks; by worrying can you add an hour to your life?

Jesus says O’ you of little faith? Do not worry about what to eat or what to drink or what you’re going to wear. Your father knows that you need them, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble.

Amen I cannot say it enough when we worry about things of this earth, we eliminate faith. Our worry, especially to a believe says that God isn’t Sovereign. I’m not saying it’s easy, what I am saying is keep moving in God’s presence so that you may be led to the things of God, and anything that is of God is good.

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.

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going through this day with the grace of God. It is amazing all the things that God does on an everyday basis. If we take the time to look around at the way that God shifts then you will catch a living testimony in the process.

To the followers of from Sinner to saint Blog welcome thanks for joining me in bible study, you all are so very much appreciated.

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 5

Verse 1 – 12

The scripture says when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountain and sat down. His disciples came to him and he began to teach them. The Lord said

Blessed are the poor in spirit,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,

For they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,

For they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

For they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,

For they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure heart,

For they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,

For they will be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

The Lord continues saying blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

 

When we go forth we know that many things and people will come at us the wrong way, testing us to see if our joy will shake, if our faith will crumble it is in the words of Jesus Christ, what should be remembered at that time. Your spirit has been knocked around Jesus says in verse 3 you have the kingdom of heaven. You are rich, your spirit is rich there is no need to feel like you are less than, you have the key to the kingdom. You are suffering a loss, you will be comforted God will do it for you. You will just need to go to him for all things. Praise God!

 

Verse 13-16

Jesus teaches about salt and light

The Lord tells us that we are what makes the earth better, if we lose our better if we lose our zeal for God then we aren’t going to be able to produce good. We will just be a waste.

The Lord tells us that we are the light of the world. We were not meant to be hidden and stand down. We were meant to be placed high so that everyone can be able to see what God has revealed through us. We are to bring Gods light to dark places.

In this day we look at the people on the street speaking Gods word like they are crazy and there are many of you that have been called to be evangelist and to go and shine Gods light in dark places but you don’t want others to call you crazy because you are speaking God’s word. I hear the Lord saying remember Jeremiah. Stand on my word!

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 

Verse 17-20

Jesus teaches about Law

Jesus reminds us that he didn’t come to remove the Law he came to fulfill  Gods words through the prophet. Jesus says until the heaven and earth disappears no word from the law will disappear until everything is accomplished. If you think that you can break any commandment and teach someone else how to break any commandments you will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus says unless your righteousness surpasses a Pharisees and the teachers of law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven

Amen we haven’t seen the heaven and earth disappear so there is no reason that we should be editing the commandments to fit our lifestyle. What I am noticing is that parents no longer teach their children to follow the ten commandments. If we start training our children on Gods law there they will find him and peace of mind.

We want our children to be kingdom kids, and even though we are walking toward righteousness we must get our households in order. Start to make affirmation with the commandments

I am one who does not put another god before the true and living God.

 

I am one who does not make Idols

Begin to speak God’s law over your life and the lives of the people around you.

Verse 21- 26

Jesus teaches about anger

Jesus teaches us that yes, we were told not to kill or we will be judged. Jesus says but if you anger with you brother you will be Judged as well. The Lord says you can’t come to the alter with anger against someone else. Reconcile and then bring your gift to the alter. The Lord says settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court, you will be handed over and won’t get out until you have paid the last penny.

 

We must fix the situation because we really don’t need an ugly seed of anger growing with our mustard seed that’s like weeds in the garden. The Lord reminds us that we must pay our debt.

 

Verse 27 – 30

Jesus teaches about lust

The Lord teaches us that if anyone who is married look at another person lustfully has already committed adultery in their heart. The lord tells us that if we want to blame a body part for our sin, then get rid of the body part. You should rather lose that body part then to go to hell.

We should not allow even ourselves to keep us from obeying Gods Law

Verse 31 – 32

The Lord tells us that unless our mate committed marital unfaithfulness if you move on to another person it will be still adultery.

We should be able to work things out we should be able to figure each other out when we are married. Currently, we do not take the time to get to know each other and spend time knowing each other’s people. These are things that we are supposed to do before we make the comitment of marriage. Some just want the big wedding and so marriage has stopped being taken so serious. Family is anointed by God and somewhere in the shift of generations we have moved from traditional and started editing the order of things. We want everything quickly not realizing that slow cooked things tend to linger longer.

Verse 33-37

Jesus teaches about vows

The Lord teaches us not to break our oath, to keep the oaths that we have made with the Lord. The Lord tells us not to swear on heaven because it is Gods throne and do not swear on the earth because it is Gods footstool or by Jerusalem because it is the city of the great king. Let your yes be yes and your no be no.

We must remember to stand on our word if you say you are going to do something follow through. If you tell God that you are going to do something follow through. We break promises to God all the time.“ Lord, if you get me out of this, I will make sure I do that” And the Lord comes through on his behalf and he sitting there waiting earth years for you to move.

Verse 38-42

Jesus teaches about retaliation

The Lord teaches yes you heard and eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. But do not withhold and evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek turn the other cheek. If someone wants to take your shirt give them your jacket as well. If someone forces you to go a mile, you go two miles. The Lord says give to the one who wants to borrow from you.

I believe a lot of people do not believe in this part of the scripture. What I will ask you is Do you have faith? Everything that was said in verses 1- 12 is the reason that you do not worry about what people do think or want. If someone hits your cheek do you not believe that Gods reaction is more solid then yours. Your reaction will have you walking away feeling convicted. If someone asks you to go beyond the earth, do you believe that the Lord will tenfold your sacrifice. Our faith should surpass our reactions.

Verse 43-48

Jesus says it was once told to love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But you should love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. That you may be sons of your father in heaven. Jesus asks if you love those who love you what reward will you get? Be perfect as your heavenly father is perfect

If we walked around helping just those who help us what satisfaction will you get. We are here to shine bright so what do you do shut the light off for those that you don’t know who are trying to climb over a hurdle.

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.

I Samuel Chapter 30

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

 

Blessing everyone,

 

I pray that you are working within the Lord’s presences, when we are building a Foundation of Faith, one of the most important things to know is; we can’t do it alone. We are not meant to do it alone. Gen 2:18 tells us that it is not good for a man to be alone. (you may say come on Wilhelmina that is referring to a man and a woman) Lev 25:35 If one of your countrymen becomes poor and unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. This shows us that it is not good for man to be alone or anyone for that matter. When we begin to have children, we were given more helpers. We are born as a helper in our tribe. When two or more are gathered God is in our mist. (you and your helpers) Last one, and when there is no help; Psalm 72:12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. We can’t do it on our own, it is not only our responsibility to each other it is one of our commandments, and for those who can’t get any help the Lord steps in and shifts things and then places divine help.

I Samuel Chapter 30

David destroys the Amalekites

Verse 1 -10

The word says that on the third day David and his men Ziklag and the Amelikites had raided Negev and Ziklag. They had burned it, taken the women captive old and young they didn’t kill anyone but they took them and went on their way.

The word says that the men cried out loud until they had no strength. Their wives and children were taken including David’s. The men wanted to stone David, they blamed him for this. But David found strength in the Lord. David told Abiathar to bring him the ephod, when Abiathat brought the ephod David inquired of the Lord

“shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I take them over?”

The Lord responded

“pursue them, you will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue”

The word says six hundred men went with him where two hundred were too tired to continue and the four hundred went on.

I’m going to jump the gun remember when the Lord told Saul to destroy the Amalekites (see chapter 15) are you thinking what I’m thinking. David is going to do what Saul failed to do. But I’m going to hold it this isn’t a long chapter lets continue.

Verse 10 -31

The word says that David’s men brought an Egyptian to him and they feed him and gave him water (remember Lev 25:35) the word says that the Egyptian was revived he had not eaten or drunk anything for three days and three nights.

David asked the man to whom do you belong? And the Egyptian man told David that he was a slave abandoned by his master an Amalekite when he became ill. He told David all the places that they raided which included Negev and burning down Ziklag

David asked the Egyptian slave if he could lead him to the raid party, and the slave was willing as long as David wouldn’t kill him or hand him to his master. The Egyptian slave led David to where the Amalekites were and they were spread over the country side enjoying the plunder of their raids; the word says that David fought them from dusk until the evening of the next day. David recovered everything that the Amalekites took including his two wives. He took the flock and herds, and his men drove everything ahead of him saying “This is David’s plunder”

On their way back, they came to the ravine where the two hundred men were, the evil men among David said that the men that didn’t go should get nothing, but they can take their wives and children and go. David told his men No, they must not do that with what the Lord has given you, the Lord has protected us, and handed over the forces that came up against us.

David told his men that the share of the men who stayed behind well be the same as the men who went to battle.

The word says when David got back to Ziklag he sent some of the plunder to the elders of Judah they were his friends with the message

“Here is a present for you, from the plunder of the enemy”

David sent plunder to friends in Bethel, Ramoth, Negev, and Jattir, Aroe, Siphmoth

,Eshtemoa, and Racal he also sent to Jerahmeelites. Kenites, and people in Hormah, Bor Ashan,  Athach and Hebron and all the other places that he had roamed.

When the Lord told David to go forth to recover what was taken from the Amalekites, the Amalekites that the Lord told Saul to destroy. Now here it’s been put into position for David to be on one Accord with God, and things have been shifted to make sure that it is strategically played out.

The Lord provided help for David, the Egyptian slave had gotten sick, and was left behind to die, the Lord sent him help, the Lord positioned David to be there to help the slave, the Lord had positioned the slave to David.

We all have to be ready and in position to help, and to except help. In the intro without readying the chapter the Lord gave me scripture on help. Whomever this word is for, be ready to help, be ready to except help.

 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.
