Luke Chapter 8

Women accompany Jesus and the disciples

This is good especially in this day when people still speak about a woman’s place in the church. There were women that were following Jesus learning and eating the word. Mary Magdalene had seven demons that Jesus rebuked from her, she knew she wanted to learn more, she knew that this was a gift that she wanted to learn. We are followers and as we learn we excel and that’s what happened with the women that followed Jesus. There was a married woman Joanna who was the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, that made me think. Jesus traveled all over to speak the word of God. This had to be an assignment for Joanna to leave her husband and her household to travel with Jesus and his disciples. The word says that also a woman by the name of Susanna and many others also traveled.

Jesus tells the parable of the four soils

This is one of my favorite parables, we can learn what we need to do and how we need to behave as believers. Jesus tells us that the word of God can sow by being rooted or fall from us quickly. It all depends on how we apply it with the way we live our lives. If we apply the word of the Lord to our lives then it will become deeply rooted in us and bare fruit. “They shall know them by their fruit”. You don’t want to just hear the word of God and go on about your life. Your going to want to build into greatness, in order to do that your focus should be connecting and retaining the word to take you to the next level.

Jesus describes his true family

It took me a moment because I was like that’s rude. The word says that Jesus mother and brother s were trying to gt in but they couldn’t , the disciple said “Jesus your mother and brothers are out there and they can’t get in.” Jesus answered “My mother and my brothers are those that hear the word and do it.” I was like Jesus (Clutching my pearls) and then I remembered the parable of the four soils and then I realized that when we apply the word and sow the seed we become one tree and the harvest is for the kingdom. no one is above the other, we are all one, no special treatment.

Jesus Calms the Storm

This part tells us that Jesus and the disciples had decided to go over to the other side of the lake. While they were traveling Jesus fell asleep and a storm with heavy wind came on the lake. The disciples had gotten scared and woke Jesus up in fear that they would die. Jesus got up and told the storm to calm, and it did. The word says the disciples started to wonder what kind of man was this that he commands the wind and water. They were amazed, I would have been amazed myself to see the water call after Jesus told it to.

Jesus sends demons into a herd of pigs

In this part Jesus frees a man from several demons inside him that had him living in tombs and walking around naked. He had to live this life for a long time and when Jesus came by he called him by name and fell down in front of Jesus and asked him for help. The word goes on to tell us that Jesus sent the demons into a herd of pigs and the pigs the people that saw this was surprised and went out to witness what they saw. when they returned they found the man with Jesus clothed and in his right mind. The man that was healed wanted to follow Jesus but Jesus told him to go home and show the great things God had done for him.

My spirit is leading me to say, some of us are led to minister and some of us our led to show Gods miracles signs in wonders. I want to say that sometimes it is just a healing in your healing and your testimony that God shows someone his awesomeness.

Jesus Heals a bleeding woman

I know you hear this one a lot, the story of the woman with the issue of blood. The scripture tells us the woman spent all her money with doctors and not a one could tell here what was wrong with her. Now Jesus was coming through her town going to visit a twelve year old girl who was dying. there was a crowd of people going to see him. The place was packed, she squeezed through people. I could imagine it was squeezing on the four train ion MTA during rush hour. she had to be on her knees because the word says she touched the border of his garment . Jesus said who touched me?

Peter asked Him ” Lord how do you know someone touche you all these people are here?” and Jesus responded ” Virtue is gone out of me.” well, well, well this had me sit for a second. Virtue if we are tapped into the spirit realm we can know when a piece leaves us. as Jesus felt the sensation of a piece of his spirit leaving. You know i added this to my spiritual list of knowledge. When no one admitted to it , she finally did saying that she was healed immediately and Jesus said to her. “Be of good comfort, your faith has made you whole.”

Now servants from the house of the twelve year girl came to Jesus and said don’t trouble the master the daughter is dead. Jesus says only believe and she will be made whole . when Jesus gets to the house he tells everyone to leave the house and then tells the girl to arise. Her spirit came again and she got up he told them to feed her meat. Her parents was astonished, Jesus told them not to tell anyone what was done.

Parables are very important to our Christian walk. They are the lessons that we learn in our walk, how we should handle situations. we also see the miracles of God and a base sauce for faith. with out faith God can’t perform many miracles in our lives Matthew 13:58 when we read about miracles that were performed we are reminded that God is omnipotent.

If you want to invited God in to your life or need Jesus to stand in the gap for you. Turn your Bible to Roman 10:9 say this prayer;

Our Father in Heaven, Lord Thank you for the restoration of our relationship. Father I believe that Jesus is Lord and he died for my sins and paid the ransom for my very soul. I believe in my heart that on the third day he rose in power and defeated death for me. Lord Thank you for your sacrifice and your gift of the Holy Spirit. Thank you for the cleansing so that I can go to the father whiter than snow in Jesus name, Amen

Faith, Order, Sinners and Forgives for the Love of God

Blessings Everyone,

Here we are at Luke chapter 7. First let me say; I Pray that you grab your bible while your reading. In no way should you take my word for it. This is a bible study and you should have your Bible ready to verify and see what the Lord is saying to you about the word.

Second Welcome, If you were scrolling and came across this blog make sure you follow so that you can get notifications of new post. If you would like to know who I am and what I do, I encourage you to go to the About Me section to learn more.

Lets get into the word

Chapter 7

This chapter is beginning with the Roman solders demonstrating faith. We learn that Jesus went into Capernaum and there was a Roman commander whose servant had fallen deathly ill. The Roman Commander sent his elder Jewish servants to send for Jesus. When the servant s get to Jesus they tell him about how good the commander is to them and how he built a synagogue for them. Jesus goes with them to see about the ill servant. The word tells us that when Jesus gets close the commander sends a messenger for Jesus. He says that he isn’t worthy to have Jesus in his house, He goes on to say just send the word and my servant will be healed. The message says that when the commander commands for his servants to do something it will get down so all Jesus needed to do is speak and it will be done.

The word says that Jesus marveled at the faith of the commander and went about his business, when the other servants got back the servant was healed.

Now that was a word, Faith is the most important part of our walk. we have to be able to believe that Jesus rose on the third day and we will need to have the faith to believe that he is coming back for the church with no blemish. If you don’t have faith you can not believe in the miracles, signs and wonders.

Now we get to Jesus raising the widows son from the dead.

The word tells us that he went to the town of Nain, his disciples were with him and many followers. The word says that a man that was dead was carried to him at the gate. Jesus had compassion for his mother because she was a widow. Jesus told the son to Arise and he got up and they took him to his mother. That day the people had fear of the Lord on them, they gave God the glory for Jesus coming. The KJV says that ” That God hath visited his people” KJV

This word right here, can I prophesy to you for a moment. For those who have made it to this blog. God is saying.” For you who are dead in your spirit arise, I am moving you to stand in your intended position. you will be first to birth new things and you will be successful in it because I am with you. when people come around you they will tremble because they will feel my spirit on you. When you open your mouth they will know that I am with you.” In the mighty name of of Jesus receive this word, let God’s Holy presence join you in your purpose, for his glory.

Jesus eases John’s doubt

John the baptist sent his disciples to go and see about Jesus, and say aren’t you the one that is to come or we should look for each other. when John’s disciples caught up with Jesus and delivered the message, Jesus let them hang with Him. He healed some folks and then told the disciples to go let John know what they saw.

Once John ‘s disciples left Jesus started telling the people about John. He explained that there is no other prophet greater than John, it is written that he would come before God and prepare the way. It also tells us that the pharisees and lawyers rejected the thought of God being baptized by John. The pharisees themselves were not baptized.

I was a bit loud with this part, like pharisees was big mad because they wasn’t baptized. This is a prime example that we get in our own way. What was so hard about saying “my bad let me go get baptized.” I understand everyone had their part to play, but there are so many lessons that can be taken from this.

Actually we have one right now. Kanye West, there’s big talk about him going to churches and performing. Now some of the believers of Christ has a lot to say about him and who he was. are we really paying attention to our word. are we really following Jesus.

A sinful woman annionts Jesus’ feet

here we learn that Jesus was invited to share a meal with one of the pharisees. A woman who was a sinner learned that he was eating at the pharisees house and went there. The word says that she wept and cleaned his feet with her tears and dried them with her hair, she also kissed his feet and anointed them with oil from an alabaster box. The Pharisees said if this man was a prophet he would know she is a sinner.

Jesus than told a parable about a creditor who forgave the debt of two men one that owed five hundred and another that owed fifty. He than asked which loved the creditor more. The lesson Jesus taught was that it would be the one that sinned the most that loved God the most for forgiving the most. Jesus then told the woman that her sins were forgiven, and then came the question, who is he that he forgives sins?

As I’m writing this I am in the process of trying to be as forgiving as Jesus. If God can forgive many offenses, then we should be forgiving to those that cross us. Not everyone is going to understand as the pharisees didn’t but God’s people will be able to.

Pressed down and Shaken how is your oil flowing

Blessings everyone,

Did you see that title? Yes this study was a serious teaching of what should be the answers to the question, How you living? as Christians, believers in Christ we forget some important parables that we should be walking by. we go through life and leave out somethings. Like what? you ask. Have you chased someone down for money they owe you? have you saw someone hungry and rushed to eat your food with out offering half? don’t feel bad I have had my moments as well, but after reading this you will know better so start doing better. Lets get into the study…

Luke Chapter 6

As soon as we start the chapter we are given a lesson 6:1 says that Jesus and his disciples were walking through a corn field, the disciples were plucking corn and eating it. 6:2 says the Certain Pharisees asked why were the the disciples doing something unlawful. Jesus remind the Pharisees of the scripture when David went into Gods house and ate the shewbread and his men also ate the bread that only the priest should eat. Jesus said to them That the son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

That word goes right with what I said in Fridays blog. Son of Man is Lord. God lives in us we were designed to walk in power we have dominion over the Earth we are children of God mad in his image. We have been adopted in to the family of God. which means we are Lord of the Sabbath. Don’t be confused you are not God big G your god little g. let me back that up in scripture Psalms 82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. Now that we have learned that, are you willing to believe that you are lord and God has empowered you to lead, in His name.

Jesus heals a man’s hand on the Sabbath

The word says that Jesus entered into the synagogue and taught and there was a man whose right hand was withered. Jesus knew the Pharisees was there to see if he would do something on the Sabbath so he told the man to rise and then he said to the people. Is it lawful on the Sabbath day to do good or evil? to save life or destroy it? Jesus told the man to stretch out his hand and the hand was restored. This caused the Pharisees to anger and speak amongst each other about what to do about Jesus.

Are you willing to stand by what God is telling you to teach. this question is penetrating in my spirit. God has been really on me about the teaching of walking in our full potential we cant do so if we do not believe that we were created to be gods. Many of us were taught that it is blasphemy to believe that we are gods. not understand the commandment to not put no god above God. it’s more than praying to Allah or Buddha. It’s about putting man above the Father Son and Holy Spirit. for instance your pastor is god little g but your pastor says don’t work on Sunday, but God big G opens the door for you to be somewhere on Sunday (Certain Day) you have put little g before the order of Big G. Years of people watering down the word of God as caused a confusion. I realize that even if I get condemned or taunted I am willing to teach what the word of God backs me up with, let’s not forget that God confirms the word of His servant.

Jesus selects the twelve disciples

Here are the names of the disciples who also will be names apostles; Simon (Peter). Andrew, James, John, Philip, and Bartholomew, Matthew and Thomas, James, Simon Judas, and Judas Iscariot.

Jesus gives the beatitudes

Jesus started to speak to the sick and unclean spirits and virtue went out of them and he healed them. then he lifted his eyes to his disciples and started to speak on our binds in Heaven and Earth. He said Blessed are the poor you will have the kingdom of God; Blessed are the hungry, you will be filled. Blessed are those that cry, you shall laugh. Blessed are those that are hated, they will hate you and reject your name for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice that day for your reward is in heaven. woe to those that are rich, for you have recieved you consolation. woe unto those that are full! for you shall hunger. woe to those that laugh now, for you shall weep.

These words are powerful, the poor always wish to be rich and so they pray and seek God, some rich have no need so they have all they may ask and forget about seeking God for certain needs. Now see that I said certain because their are some rich that are reach because the seek God because they moved in manifestation.

Jesus teaches about fruit in peoples lives

This is a great lesson, this is where the saying the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree comes from. How we are is what we bring forth. you steal you train everything that comes from you it’s okay to steal. you praise and worship your children will praise and worship. God example I have always prayed and spoke God’s name but didn’t always go to church, my first to children don’t go to church but the listen for God and pray. I now go to church and work for God my last three children love going to church and working in the church. Both children were trained different. I myself didn’t go to church because my mother didn’t take me, I studied the word of God because I was seeking and found why was I seeking because I come from a Tree that started on faith and service to God. the apple didn’t fall far.

Jesus teaches about those who build house on rock and sand

This teaching you should keep in your mind all the time. when we lean on God even when the storms come we will not sink. when we place our faith in man especially man that has not connected to God we sink, it’s not a solid foundation. God will send life savers, divine connections to revive you but first you have to grab a hold of the rock (call on Jesus).

I pray that this lesson has caused you to go into prayer about walking in your full potential and being who you were created to be may God bless your Journey

I encourage you to read this blog with your bible, it’s important to see what the Lord is saying to you. This chapter has lessons and those lessons will cause you to self check and change your walk. the change of your walk will allow the oil to flow in your life. Yes your going to have some convictions about how you have been behaving but convictions are not to cause you to run but to bring you closer to God for guidance.

Enjoy your journey in praise

Power and Authority

Blessings everyone,

This lesson in Luke chapter 5 is powerful. The question the holy spirit kept asking me is ” are you working in your power as a child of God?” I am reminded that on this Earth Jesus was not here as God, He came as the son of man. In this chapter I have learned that everything Jesus did he did as man not God the son. Lets get in…

(5:1-8) We learned in chapter 4 that Jesus’s name had become well known. People traveled all over to hear him speak and see miracles, signs and wonders. The beginning of this chapter takes us to Jesus encouraging Simon to launch his net after the drought. Peter took a chance on the word of Jesus in 5:3 says Jesus prayed for Simon that he would thrust out a little from the earth.

Thrust- Push Suddenly

After praying He told Peter to launch out into the deep and let his net down. Peter says to Jesus Master we tried all night, but if you say so I will 5:5. 5:6 says and when they did , a great multitude of fish that broke their net. When Simon Peter saw this 5:8 says he told Jesus that he didn’t deserve to be in his presence. 5:10 Jesus says to him fear not you shall catch men. When they brought their ships in to the land the Followed Jesus.

There was somethings that I had noticed

  • Jesus prayed for Peter. It’s very important for us to have a relationship with God before we go and speak a word. we must take it to God.
  • when we have passed that point we then must walk out on faith and believe what we have asked the father for will happen. And if we ask on behalf of another person we have the faith to cover them as well.

why do you think that it’s important not to lie? why do you think it’s important to be a Christ Representative. When we speak God hears, when God hears us He confirms the word of his servant/ friend. When God confirms the word of His servant/ friend the person who we pray for or speak into see’s miracles, signs and wonders. This is important for those who prophesy into the lives of others .

  1. Speak to God, pray for the person
  2. Open your mouth with faith that the Holy Spirit will speak.
  3. Be the light and allow yourself to be ready to be filled with the power. (chapter 4)

Jesus Heals leprosy

The Bible tells us when Jesus had gotten to a certain city ( appointed time) their was a man with leprosy, this man asked Jesus to make him clean. The word says Jesus touched him saying ” I will, be thou clean” and then told the man not to tell anyone just give his offerings according to the laws of Moses day.

In this study the certain day stands for and appointed time. everything that we encounter happens on a certain day that was already written. the word that stood out to me was I WILL be thou clean. How many of us can WILL something, rain to stop, healing. something that isn’t self satisfying. How many of us can manifest and believe in what we are manifesting. I WILL thou be clean, what are you willing to will? What do you believe God for? Do you have enough faith to cover not only yourself but your neighbor. Let’s go deeper…

Jesus heals a paralyzed man

while I was studying this part of the chapter, certain things began to cause me to go deeper. 5:17 says and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. it also says on a certain day ( appointed time). This is the day that the Lord as made for these things to occur. The place was packed with people wanting to be healed, God was showing miracles to the people. It was so packed that a group of men brought a paralyzed man in through the roof because the couldn’t get him pass the crowed. They had so much faith that the man would be healed that they risked their life to get him through the roof. The word says when Jesus saw their faith he said ” Man thy sins are forgiven thee.” Right then the Pharisees began to scream “Blasphemies Who can forgive sins, but God alone” 5:24 Jesus said “but that ye may know that the son of man hath power upon the Earth to forgive sins.”

Did you read that? Do you believe that the Holy Spirit is with you? Do you believe that your prayers will open doors? Do you believe that you can heal the sick? Do you believe that you have the power to forgive sins?

Let me say this, I had to keep asking the Holy Spirit about that, it didn’t sound right, we have the power to forgive sins? then I looked up and 5:23 says Jesus said ” is it easier to say the sin is forgiven or get up and walk?”

Most people believe they can’t because of punishments but when God is with you, you start to speak a release over a persons life. you begin to clear their thoughts in the name of Jesus. The word was the power of the Lord was present.

5:26 says immediately he rose. That’s what happens when the power of the Lord is present and your faith is connected. Even in a drought 5:26 says why? They were amazed and they glorified God.

Jesus eats with sinners at Matthews (Levi’s ) house

The word says Jesus saw Levi and told him to follow him and Levi left all and followed Jesus. Levi then made a great feast in his own house and there were many people, publicans and others that sat down with him. The Pharisees began to say, Why are you eating and drinking with publicans? This is were Jesus says he wasn’t called for the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

We forget that Jesus started as a fisher. He came for the lost remember Simon said he was not worthy. Can I just say this, God already has those of us that are breathing for his next word, He wants those that feel unworthy to be in his presence, you know the dirty guess at the wedding. He wants to clean that person, make them new.

4:33 the pharisees wanted to know why the disciples didn’t fast. 4:35 Jesus tells them their will be a day when they fast. He gives them the parable of new wine in old wine skin.

A reminder, God is always doing a new things. you will have to let go of the old to shift with the new. in other words everything has evolution and wont be he same.

Let me say this God always has new things, He will tell you when it’s time to do the things he wants you to do. you’ll go crazy trying t be perfect, when love and respect is all you need to be, to be pleasing.

You were meant to move, so why are you afraid when God says go?

Blessings everyone!

Every bit of this chapter spoke to the future me. I understand now why the spirit of God has been beckoning me to read the book of Luke. It brought confirmations, instructions and understanding to my journey.

I’m sure the title has called you here and I want you to grab your bible and sit with me for a second, if you were drawn here this word is for you.

LUKE CHAPTER 4

This chapter starts off with Jesus being tempted in the wilderness. (4:1) And He was full of the Holy Ghost….. led by the spirit into the wilderness. He did not eat nothing, but when it ended, after He hungered.

We come into a time when everything is still. Jesus fasted for 40 days, take this as natural and spiritual. Fast means He did not eat anything . The Holy Spirit is telling me he rested with God, He was emptied to be filled. To get where God wants us to be we will have to remove the thing that we depend on the most. Why? because you are expecting to be stirred and filled a dependent on the Holy Spirit, being taught only by the spirit of God. becoming one with the Holy Spirit insures that what you are being told is God filled My sheep knows my voice John 10:27&28

4:3-13 Takes us into the tempting, the devil did his very best. First he wanted Jesus to prove Himself (4:3)

How many of you have felt you had to prove who God says you are to others. Here is proof that, that’s faithful satan up to his same old tricks.

Jesus’s answer was an answer straight from out of the word of God (4:4) It is written that man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word of God. The devil then promised the world to Jesus

Who has experienced a desire for fame and fortune? Who has desired control? I’m not saying these things are a sin I’m saying to desie them are. Our desire should be to be pleasing to God. Then fame and fortune will be gifted unto you for the obedience of saying yes to what has been asked of you. Let’s go back to the word

Jesus responded again with the word of God. For it is written Thu shalt worship the Lord the thy God and Him alone shall thy serve.

When you have passed these temptations the enemy will even come in like he is for the team of the Heavenly Father and start quoting scripture. (4:10) says satan for it is written he shall give his angels charge over thee and their hands they shall bear thee up. lest anytime thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus says Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. The word says the devil departed from him for that season.

Let me say this before I go on. Satan will try to compromise Gods word. Please not scripture is unchanging there is no compromising.

We are taught how to fight these battles , our weapons are right there in the word of God, right in our faces in the Holy bible. Yes your looking right at it.

The spirit gives us the scripture for our battles satan is consistent he doesn’t try anything new, He stays on the same path, trying to prove to God that you aren’t worthy of the power that God has given to you. When you have won that battle he leaves for a season. (4:14) Starts by saying And Jesus returned in the Power of the spirit, into Galilee and there went out a fame of him through all the region. And he taught is their synagogues being glorified of all.

No need to look for attention. When the spirit of God is in you people will seek you they will flock to you.

This is were the Holy Spirit spoke to me loud in clear (4:18) Jesus opened the book of the prophet Esaias. The word says when he laid open the book he found the place. Saying the spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the gospel. (4:20) then he closed the book he said to them today the scripture is fulfilled in your eyes. (4:22) they didn’t understand why he had such power, what made him so special, what made him think he was the prophesy. Jesus than says in (4:24) No prophet is accepted in his own country.

It’s hard to be accepted by the people who knew us pre Holy spirit this is why the lessons of Jesus in the wilderness is important . When it’s about God your not concerned about the ones not willing to listening. Your concerned with the ones that are hungry for the word of God. Your man concern is being obedient to the word of God on your life.

(4:28-32) Tells us that they had gotten so upset with what Jesus said that they had gotten to get to kill Jesus. the word says he slept right by them.

This reminds us that there’s no need to worry Gods timing reigns supreme.

(4:33-37) These verses tell us about Jesus rebuking the spirit of the unclean devil from a man (4:36) Reminds us that we have power and authority to command and when we use it all wil know. (4:37) And the fame of him went out unto every place of the country round about.

We are unsure if we have the power an authority. We have been told “not to play with God” We have been trained to believe that God is not with us, that He is far away. We have been taught to close our mouths and let the leaders speak. We have lost the sense that the leader lives in us.

(4:38)Jesus healed simoens mother in law and she got up and ministered to the people.

(4:40) Tells us that Jesus laid hands on the sick and devils fled and knew his name.

Are you afraid for devils to know your name? God has us covered, we worry about simple attacks (tests) we worry about being on satans most wanted list. We play it safe and let the spirit of God sit dormant in us.

(4:42) The word says Jesus went to the desert place and the people looked for him, they wanted him to stay kin Galilee and Jesus told them he must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities that is why he was sent.

This is why we must move, we must keep the word and glory of God flowing through cities. satan is going to do what he does, God expects us to do what we do with his spirit that rest in us. When you are afraid to move and feel you are not equip remember God doesn’t tell us to go and not have our backs of have already prepared us. go forth filled with the Power of the spirit of God

Be Blessed

Someone prepared the way for you, Now you prepare the way for someone else.

Blessings everyone,

This is a good one, we forget that when we walk this Earth we walk a path that someone has already walked and that someone else will follow. we tend to moan and complain about what we maybe going through instead of chopping down trees for the way to be cleared for those that follow . This lesson in the third chapter of Luke puts the word of God in the lesson. It’s easy to say something but when you put Gods word in it, it becomes truth and everlasting.

Luke Chapter 3

Chapter 3 starts by telling us that in the thirteenth year of Tiberius Caesar, God spoke to John in the wilderness.(3:2) John went out into the country preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sin. The action of John was confirmation to the word of Isaiah.

There’s always an order, Isaiah came first letting the people know that John had come to prepare the way for the Lord.

In these verses John begins to teach the people how to live by the Law of loving thy Neighbor. (How to show Gods glory) (3:8-19) These verses tell us to be willing to Share, feed and not be gluttons.

3:8 Reminds us that when we walk in repentance we begin to produce fruit, we begin the process of multiplication.

3:16 John tells the people that the one who will come after him will be more powerful than he is . John goes on to say that he is not worthy to even untie the straps of his sandals.

Lets speak on the fruitfulness, should be able to pour into those that follow us. We should be able to prepare the way for them to get to the point of where we are and beyond. Because we cleared the way they would and should be in a position of understanding, as you once were when you were following someone.

Chapter 3 goes on to teach us that Johns Ministry took him to the prison. the lesson has taught us that John was sent to prison because he was no willing to compromise Gods word. King Herod the leader of the people was living in sin, John was walking in his purpose he was to prepare the way and that was to admonish and open the minds of the people. John rebukes the actions of the leader of the people that he was trying to strongly encourage.

Chapter three ends with the baptism and genealogy of Jesus. The word tells us that as Jesus was praying the Holy Spirit descended on him.

This is why a prayer life is so important to our walk, when we pray it strengthens the spirit of God in us. In prayer we go to God for instructions and lessons, the Holy Spirit interprets Gods word to us. Jesus began his ministry after He was baptized, after the Holy Spirit descended on Him. we can not go forth and produce fruit without the Holy Spirit of God with us.

We learn the family line in which Jesus came from taking us all the way to Adam.All that came before Jesus had been servants with a relationship with God. Let this word remind us of Isaiah 59:21 The spirit of God will stay with us and the word of God will be on the lips of our children and our children’s, children. This is those before you and those after you in the name of Jesus.

To God be the Glory!!!!

If you are ready to give your life over to God and ready to let Jesus come in to teach you, Turn your bible to Roman 10:9

Rest in your fathers house

Blessings Everyone,

To God be the glory we have made it to another day. It has been on my heart the move of God the things and places that God is bringing to my life. I don’t know about you all but at time I’m called to a rest and reset.

This is the time that I believe we have to self out Holy Spirit in. This is the time me must make sure it’s the Lord speaking and we are going forth in what God has taught us. this time requires us to be in our Fathers house learning and listening to the next steps and instructions on how to be used in the next steps.

The title today comes from the 2nd chapter of Luke. I have always said that when I need answer to where I am at in life the Father will have me study a book in the bible. I’m grateful that three years ago He gave me this outlet to over flow in. So go on ahead and stick out your cup and let’s get into the word.

Luke chapter 2

2:4 Tells us that Joseph went to his home town of Bethlehem the town of David to register his soon to be wife who was then very pregnant Jesus. While in Bethleehem Mary went in labor and gave birth to Jesus.

2:10 The word tells us that an angel came to shepherds and told them not to be afraid that he came with great news that bring joy to the people. “Today in the town of David a savior has been born.

2:13&14 A great company of the heavenly host appears with the angel saying “Peace to those on whom his favor rest.

This word reminds us that Gods favor brings us peace. we are walking in the favor of Gods that at the birth of Jesus we were given Joy for all people. our savior (a person who saves someone or something) was born.

we go to God because when we are confused or stressed. God brings us peace and Joy. we take rest in Him at the moments of distress. This is how we grow, this is how we refuel to the next step. we are taught that Gods plans for us are for God and not evil Jeremiah 29:11 which means that if we are in a moment of why? or I can’t, that means we need to seek the kingdom of God and all it’s righteousness Matthew 6:33.

2:34&35 Simeon prophesy over Jesus in the temple destined to cause the falling and rising, so that the thoughts of many will be revealed.

What are the thoughts of your heart? We always speak about out fruit. When Jesus comes in the thing that is deep in your hearts come out. For some the worst wil come out before the better. We call that purging. Jesus does some spring cleaning. we fall before we rise, this humbles us for our rise. you’ve been there and know how it feels we becodme witnesses of the fall and the rise.

For those that have already fallen, they began to see a new thing and build up! You see kwe either meet Jesus and go to our knees or crawl to Jesus and He picks us up.

2:46-49 Jesus says to Mary and Joesph Didn’t you know I was in my Fathers House? When we begin to build we start at a point where God has us. That’s the time to be still and learn, listen, and ask questions.

When Mary & Joseph finally found 12 year old Jesus, he says; Didn’t you know I had to be in my father’s house.

2:49 Others around us will think we are lost. they’ll be wondering were we are, others won’t even notice us, we have been hidden from their sight.

This is for those who are wondering why they are being ignored. We at times must be in a place of preparation. God is nourishing the grounds, giving the soil everything it needs to grow. This place your spirit is in the Fathers house. This is your time to ask God fyour questions, listen and absorb as much as your being fed.

2:52 Jesus grew in wisdom…. when we take that time we grow in wisdom and obedience

our Job on this earth is to grow in obedience. grow wisdom (excel) and be fisher of men we are walking like Jesus. Jesus took the time to learn and grow in His Fathers house so don’t you neglect that moment for the spirit that lives in you!

sometimes we have to shut our mouths

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are well and moving in the things that you’re called in. It’s been a while and I do apologize, I have been building other rooms in the foundation. I have been blessed to have been able to build and establish other outlets to push out the word of God.

As I was writing my thrive weekly schedule God started to give me instructions on comeback to the blog. I’m actually pretty excited because it pushes me to study the word of God and go deeper. I won’t keep you to long but welcome back if your coming back. welcome if your new to Journey in praise Bible Study. Please see the about section to learn who I am and what I do, you can also find the outlets to reach me.

Luke Chapter 1

Chapter 1 takes us to the preparation of the birth of Jesus. Before the birth of Jesus there was a first step. It’s important to understand that we first have to go through the building portion. As a disciple of Christ I learned that God is strategic in all the things He does. Before the big thing we must go through the first step. first he created light, John came before Jesus. I’m sure that there are something in your life that God put in a strategic order and at this moment the Holy Spirit is showing you exactly what that thing is.

Before Mary was impregnated with Jesus her cousin Elisabeth was pregnant with John. now we know that John baptized Jesus so of course he had to be the first .

The beginning of Luke tells us that the angel Gabriel came to Zacharias who was a priest married to the daughter of Aaron ( Moses brother). Zacharias and Elisabeth were righteous before God which means that they loved, respected and honored God. Gabriel tells Zacharias that his wife Elisabeth was going to get pregnant at her old age and name the child John. Now we know that this can happen because we know that the Lord did this first with Sarah and Abraham. let me add this detail that Elisabeth was barren.

Gabriel told Zacharias that he and his wife was going to be given a son. The word tells us that John would be filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb. Luke 1:15

Now Zacharias did not believe Gabriel he found it hard to believe that his wife was going to get pregnant she was well past child baring age, she was barren. Because Zacharias did not believe Gabriel, Gabriel says to Zaharias that he’s going to make him dumb. Zacharias could not speak.

There was no telling anyone what the angel Gabriel had said or when he had visit Zacharias had to keep his mouth shut. Sometimes God gives us something that we have to keep our mouths shut about. somethings seem so unbelievable that our tongues become twisted. we can’t tell someone because we can’t believe it.

The word tells us six months after visiting Zacharias Gabriel visited Mary in Galilee. the word tells us that 8 days after John was born he was circumcised and they were getting ready to name him after his father and Elisabeth said that his name would be John, when they went to Zacharias he was able to speak and started praising God.

. This chapter makes me think about the saying moving in silence. Zacharias didn’t go around writing on his tablet what Gabriel told him nor did his wife repeat it. In this day we have that habit of talking too much. I’m guilty of this one as well.

Somethings are between us and God. Zachrias and Sarah’s story is an example of how we should be handling the babies that God has given us.

In Prayer God shows you a vision

we Write it down

we speak on it to everyone

This makes room for others to put there mouths (negativity) on what God has given you.

okay what God has for you is for you, BUT when you allow others in, you allow them to influence your thoughts and your prayers they begin to put you in a place of wavering faith.

Can I tell you we should be spending our pregnancies in silence, we should be waiting to open our mouths after we give birth. All they can do is praise God

Did you catch that? They begin to praise God for what he has done in your life Miracles signs and wonders!

Jonah Chapter 3

Blessings Everyone!

I pray that you all are being Obedient in what thus says the Lord our God concerning you.

This third chapter in the book of Jonah had me realizing a thing or two about how big our brains make things seem. We will talk ourselves out of doing something great in a micro minute, just because fear jumped in. That feeling of being unworthy can choke the life out of your purpose.

I can only assume that it was fear of something that kept Jonah out of Ninevah. He might have feared that no one would listen to him or he could have feared being over turned by the wickedness. That fear took him straight in to disobedience right into the belly of the great fish.

To the followers thank you for your fellowship and support. If you happen to have been scrolling and came across this blog Welcome! Here we fellowship and enjoy the word of the Lord. Feel free to comment below and like. If you are led please follow the blog so that you can receive notifications of new blog posts. Let me introduce myself!

Jonah Chapter 3

Jonah goes to Ninevah

The chapter starts off by saying; The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time. The Lord told Jonah to go to Ninevah and deliver the message He game him the first time.

This time Jonah was obedient. The word tells us that Ninevah was a very large city and it took three days to go through. On the first day in Jonah began proclaiming what the Lord said which was in forty days the city of Ninevah will be overthrown.

The people of Ninevah believed God, they started to fast and put on sackcloth from the youngest to the oldest, from the richest to the poorest.

I couldn’t help but notice all the trouble Jonah caused himself, being in the belly of a great fish for three days and three nights and his task was so easy.

We are just like that, God gives us an assignment and we run from it. we keep running into barriers, we find our =selves stuck in the tornado’s of crazy life lessons. Then we find out the thing that we were so afraid of the thing that the Lord had shifted us to go wasn’t that bad, it was actually the easiest thing to do.

For Jonah the people believed the message he had from God, they went right to repenting and mourning.

verse 6-10

The word says when Jonah’s message reached the king. The king took off his robes and put on sackcloth, the word says that the king sat down in the dirt. The king issued a proclamation;

Everyone and thing is not to eat or drink anything. Everyone should be covered with sackcloth and everyone should be in fervent prayer. The king proclaimed that everyone was to loose themselves from their evil ways and violence. He told the people to hope that God has compassion on them and that they will not perish. The word says that when God saw their action and how they turned from their evil ways , he relented and didn’t bring them the destruction that He threatened them with.

We serve a forgiving God, the Lord sent Jonah with a warning. Even though Jonah was disobedient he still ended up being reminded of the assignment over his life.

Because Jonah walked in his assignment people lived, lives were spared and sins were forgiven.

No matter ho you feel about a person or a people, your main concern should be what God has called you to do. What you have is set up to save someones life.

Listen! if you know that you have a purpose on your life, if you have a feeling like there is something is calling you, it’s time to get instruction from the creator . Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Believe in your heart and with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died for our sins and on the third day God raised him with POWER that you shall be saved.

Find you a bible based church, start building your relationship with God through a prayer life and get yourself around like-mind people and begin to walk by faith

Jonah Chapter 2

Blessings everyone!

I pray that you all are doing well today, did you enjoy chapter 1 today? We left off with Jonah in the belly of the fish. Have you thought about a time when you were forced to take the consequences, what did you do? Sometimes our backs can be pushed against the wall and all things, all fingers will point toward us. Can you say, hey it is me I am wrong! I’m realizing that Jonah did not deny or hide when it came time for his moment of truth. As a believer one thing that I have learned is God just wants us to admit our wrongs.

To the Followers thank you for your support and fellowship! If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog welcome! If you enjoyed the bible study don’t forget to follow so that you can get notification of new blogs. Let me introduce myself!





My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, Some of the ways that I serve God is by writing this blog, I am the founder of Journey in Praise and the Host of Verse of the Day on Facebook, I am also the Host of the Journey in Praise podcast as well as an Arthur for the kingdom . Let’s get in to the word!

This chapter shows us that even though Jonah was in the belly of the fish, he had to give God the Glory for his life.

Verse 1-5 Jonah says he cried out and God heard him from the belly of hell. he was cast into the deep sea, engulfed in currents, with seaweed wrapped around his head.

Imagine being in Jonah’s position. what could you do but pray. your in the belly of a fish, you know what got you there , you actually suggest to be thrown in the sea.

Sometimes we find ourselves in sitiuations where we walked right through the wrong door. some of us have found ourselves lacking in finances because of poor spending habits. some of us have found ourselves fired from our jobs because we didn’t get up and go to work. whatever it is the outcome is your big fish.

verse 6-10

Jonah speaks of when he lost hope when his soul fainted, when he couldn’t take anymore, when he was overwhelmed that’s when he remembered the Lord. Jonah remembered and proclaimed that he was the sacrifice to God and that his salvation is from the Lord,

We can find ourselves with 2 million things to do, it’s when we put God first and give ourselves to God we see and understand that it is God who is going to release us from that hold. WE CAN NOT RUN FROM GOD. WILL YOU BE THE SACRIFICE?

Amen

Listen if you are saying ” I want to sacrifice myself give my life to God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Say with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus died for your sins and on the third day God raised him in Power than you shall be saved.

Take the time to build your relationship with God. find a bible based church, begin studying the word and get among some like minded people but most important start to build your prayer life, talk to the Lord tell Him all about it.

Be Blessed
