Isaiah Chapter 25

Praise to the Lord

Verse 1- 12

This word starts off with the Prophet Isaiah praising and exalting God, He says “for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.

Isaiah speaks of the Lord taking down a city to a heap of ruins, the strong hold of the foreigners will be no more and never rebuilt.

And so, the strong people will honor you (Speaking to the Lord) cities of ruthless nations will revere (Respect) you.

Isaiah says in his praise to the Lord, that He (the Lord) will be a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy and their distress and a shelter from the storm. (Hallelujah) A shade from the Heat. (My God)

Isaiah goes on to say that on the Mountain the Lord will prepare a feast of rich foods for all people, a banquet of aged wine, the best of meats and the finest of wines.

On this Mountain he will destroy the shroud (a garment the dead are wrapped in) that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; He will swallow up death forever.

Isaiah says He will remove disgrace from the earth.

In that they will say

“Surely this is our God;

We trusted in Him, and He saved us.

This is the Lord, we trusted in Him;

Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

The word goes on to say that the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain, but Moab will be trampled in their land. God will bring down their pride, despite the cleverness of their hands.

 

Amen, Amen, and Amen her lies a word for those of you who are beginning your prayer life

verse 1-6 is great for beginning praise. we serve a God who has covered us, who has prepared a healthy and rich feast by people that he has improved over the years (aged wine) the feast is fulfilling with the best of meats (the word).

In this chapter we learn that the Lord and savior is coming to swallow death forever and wipe away the tears from our faces. Even more reason to glorify God.

We also learn that the strongholds will be no more, the Lord will bring them down to dust.

Glory Be to God

If you are looking for God to redeem you and set you up on a mountain for this wonderful feast.

Isaiah Chapter 13

I pray that you all are standing on the side of the Lord, I pray that as you walk you are walking like a soldier in his army.

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah chapter 13

Verses 1-6

The Prophet Isaiah begins to tell the people the sad news that there will be a day whe a signal will come from the mountains.

And God will send his consecrated ones and his great warriors to battle to execute His anger. They well come from the end of Heaven to destroy the whole land.

The mighty wrath of God. One thing we learn from the Bible is that it’s not when one person is doing wrong, it’s when a people is doing wrong collectively.

When we learned in Genius that God created Adam to be fruitful and multiply the multiplication would be Accountability partners.

Jesus confirms it when He said one of the important commands is to Love your neighbor as God loves you.

If a people is doing wrong (Sodom) and then He WILL cast judgement upon them.

Uses his oracle Isaiah to warn yhe people. Who says God won’t give his people a chance to correct their actions?

Verse 6-16

Isaiah warns the people that the day will come when they will wail. This is when God WILL exterminate the sinners.

When the stars will not shine and the sun will be dark, the moon will give no light.

God says He will put an end to arrogance, and men will be rare as fine Gold. God says he will make the heavens tremble, and shake the earth from it’s place.

The word arrogance stud out in tgis reading for me. ( it could because I was listening to the song give God the Glory)

We live in the day where we rarely hear the words Thank you Jesus! Glory to God! For his Glory!

Arrogance is strong in this day as believers we are on this earth to shine God’s light, to teach and share testimony about the power of God’s grace and mercy. Introduce prayer life, walk like Jesus did.

Verse 17-22

These verses tell us that God used the Medes because they jad No care for silver or Gold, they couldn’t be bought.

And the went forth to destroy in tue name of God.

Isaiah told the people that the Lord says it would be like Sodom and Gamorrah.

Gods wrath is as strong as his love. We have to decide what end to be on, and what end we would be willing to help are neighbor be on.

This walk is about our faith in God, the confirmation of His word, and teaching what we have learned.

Be Blessed

If you would like to fill your life with confirmations of the word of God, and build a relationship with th living God . Turn your bible, Google, or download the youversion Bible app to Romans 10:9

Lord God,

You are the true and living God, holy is your name. Thank you Lord God for dying for my sins, and rising on the 3rd day so that I may jave life abundantly. Lord Jesus please wash me of my sins and help me on this journey

in Jesus name Amen

Isaiah Chapter 8

logo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

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

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

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 8

Verse 1-10 Isaiah and his children as signs

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

verse 11-22

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 7

Blessings everyone,

It’s been a while, right? Thanks for hanging in there. To God be the Glory we have walked in Faith and have relocated to Myrtle Beach S.C. can I tell you that when you walk in faith you Will find your smile.

I have walked with my head down and my heart on God, can I tell you, that when you are able to look up and see Gods work and Gods love, you will get to feel a wholeness with your spirit.

I do believe that my time with my head down and my heart on God allowed him to come in and fix the places that needed to be fixed and then I longed to look up.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. What new-journey-in-praise-flyerI do is allow God to use my mouth and hands for his will and walk by faith. Some of the ways that I serve God is here on this blog, I am the founder of Journey in Praise ministry and lead intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint Blog. I also serve on the leader board for Walk it Out Ministries. You can follow me of Faceboo, Twitter, Instagram, and periscope @WilhelminaLundy.

you can Email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com for prayer request, study questions or others.

Lets get into the word

The miraculous signs of Immanuel

verse 1-9

The word says Rezin and Pekah the kings of Aram and Israel, went to fight against Jerusalem, but they couldn’t over power it.

The royal family of Ahaz the king of Judah  was told ” The army of Aram has joined forces with Ephraim army.” Ahaz and his people were scared. The word says they trembled like trees in the forest when the wind blows.

Isaiah says the Lord said to him “Go out to see Ahaz, take your son Shear- Joshub with you. Meet Ahaz at the end of the channel that brings water from the upper pool. It is on the road to the washer man’s field. Tell Ahaz, be careful. Stay calm, Do not be afraid, Do not lose hope because of the burning anger of Rezin, Arom and the son of Remaliah.

After all, they are nothing but  a couple of pieces of smoking firewood. Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have planned to destroy you. They said let’s march into Judah and attack, lets tear everything down. Then we could share the land among ourselves, and we can make Tabeel’s son king over it”

The Lord says to Isaiah “But I am Lord and king. I said that will not happen it will not take place. The capital of Aram is Damascus and the ruler of Damascus is only Rezin. don’t worry about the people of Ephraim, they will be to crushed to be considered a people.

That will happen before 65 years are over the capital of Ephraim is Samaria and the ruler of Samaria is only Remaliahs son. If you don’t stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.

In faith we know that God’s word is confirmed, life brings fear to us and we don’t want to face the winds and the shaking trees but in these verses we learn that God says; don’t fear and don’t allow a negative distraction  to intimidate us, our main focus is to make sure we stand in faith, and stand firm.

Verse 10-25

The word says the Lord spoke to Ahaz through Isaiah saying; I am the lord your God, ask me to give you a miraculous sign. He can be anything in the deepest grave or in the highest heaven.

Ahaz answered saying he won’t ask, he won’t test God.

Then Isaiah said, listen members of Ahaz  family isn’t it enough to test man’s patience? are you going to test the patience of God? The Lord will give you a miraculous sign. The virgin is going to have a baby. She will have a son and he will be called Immanuel.

Their will be a time we will have to decide what is wrong and what is right. He will only have butter and honey to eat. But even before that the land of the two kings you are afraid of will be completely destroyed.

The Lord will bring the king Assyria against you and He will bring him against your people and the whole royal family. It will be a time of trouble unlike any since the people of Ephriam broke away from Judah.

The word says at that time the Lord will call for the Egyptians and they will come like flies from streams of Egypt. He will call for the Assyrians, they will come like bees. They will all come and camp in deep valleys, caves and water holes.

Isaiah tells Ahaz at this time the Lord will us the Assyrians to punish you. Ahaz had hired them earlier. Now their king will be like a razor in the Lord’s hand, he will shave the hair from your head and legs. He will also shave off your beards.

A man will only be able to keep one young cow and two goats alive. But they will give enough milk and butter to live on. All those who is left will have only butter and honey to eat.

The land that once had 1000 vines worth 25 lbs of silver will be covered with horns and bushes. all the hills that used to be plowed with hoes. But you wont go there because you are afraid of thorns  and bushes. Cattle will be turned loose on those hills and sheep will run there.

I read the last verse a couple of times, I was reminded that our fears and lack of faith will be the reason we miss out on the things that God released for you.

The word says “the land that once had vines worth 25 lbs of silver will be covered with thorns and bushes”  because you were afraid you didn’t go and do the work by removing those thorns and bushes you missed out. 

you missed out not only on the land, but in that place cattle and sheep will be loose. 

Fear of trials stop us and then we miss the blessing from God. You didn’t go and test your faith in God, because it was dark, because you didn’t see a way out, because you thought it was a dead end, because you were scared you would fail. The blessing still hit the land, you just wasn’t in position.

Fear of invaders will stop you from going in the places you will need to go, to tend to the things that you will need to tend to in order to have the harvest that you would like to see. The thing we don’t want to talk about, is when the blessing hit and you aren’t kin position, someone else will test their faith in God and stumble upon the land which the courage to fight the invaders and they will live will, because they were willing to trust God.

 

If you are tired of being afraid of thorns and bushes in your life and you want God to show you a miraculous sign, open your heart and welcome Him in. Turn your bible, download a free bible app or google Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Start building your relationship by reading today’s chapter let God show you how to cut down those thorns. Find new ways to let him show you signs. Get yourself into a sound doctrine bible based church and a christian family to fellow ship with.

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 5

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

With that being said let’s get started.

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

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

Let me introduce myself; My name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God.

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

Let’s get to the word

Isaiah Chapter 5

The song of the vineyard

Verse 1-7

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I will command the clouds not to rain on it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

To start over

Woes and Judgement

Verse 8 -17

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

The Lord has declared to Isaiah

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So people will be brought low and everyone humbled.

The eyes of arrogant, humbled,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 18-30

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings now for the important part.

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

Be Blessed

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are moving well and ready to push in your purpose. Jesus pushed, he pushed threw so that we may have life and not death.

He pushed so that we will win. And in that lets be ready to move.

I also serve as the Founder of Journey in Praise Ministries and I serve as one of the leaders of the Walk It Out Ministries. (For more info go to About Me section)

Lets get in to the word of God!

Matthew Chapter 24

Jesus teaches on the Mount of Olives

Verse 1-25

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

Jesus said;

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

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

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

Jesus answered

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It will be our discernment that guides us.

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

Be still in God.

Jesus tells about his return

Verse 26 -35

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The day and hour are not known

Verse 36- 48

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Matthew Chapter 22

Verse 1-14

Jesus told them more stories He said,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The King asked,

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

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

*gnashing- grinding, gritting

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

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

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

Verse 15-22

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

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

But Jesus knowing their evil intent, said,

You hypocrites! Why are you trying to trap me?

Show me the coin used for paying the tax.

The brought him a denarius and he asked them

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

“Caesar’s” they replied

Then Jesus said

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

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

What are you taking?

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

“Lord remove pride and flesh wants from me.”

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

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

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

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

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

Religious leaders question Jesus about resurrection

Verse 23-33

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

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

Jesus replied;

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

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

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

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

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

Religious leaders question Jesus about the greatest commandment

Verse 34-40

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

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

“Teacher what is the greatest commandmentbib the law?”

Jesus answered;

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

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

On these two commandments hang all the law amd prophets

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

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

They anwered him

“The son of David”

Jesus then asked them,

How is is that in spirit David calls him Lord saying

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Matthew Chapter 19

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are seeking God first in everything that you do.

At times we can not see who acknowledges our well doing, and even though the labor can get hard and at times it seems as if your the only person moving.

I want to tell you to keep on moving, don’t look to the left or right. Keep your eyes on God and continue to walk on the water. But most important do not faint when it gets hard, just know God is making a way.

Lets get in to the word of God!

Matthew chapter 19

Jesus teaches about Divorce

Verse 1-12

The word says that Jesus went to the area of Judea on the other side of the Jordan River, after he left Galilee. Large crowds followed him, he healed them there.

The word says:

some Pharisees came to test him. They had asked him; If the law allowed a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?

Jesus replied;

Haven’t you read that in the beginning the Creator, made them male and female? That’s why a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife the two will become one.

They are no longer two, but one. So a man must not separate what God has joined together.

They asked, then why did Moses command that a man can give his wife a letter of divorce and send her away?

Jesus replied;

Moses let you divorce your wives because you were stubborn.

But it was not this way from the beginning, here’s what I tell you, anyone who divorces his wife and gets married to another woman commits adultery.

A man may divorce his wife only if she has been unfaithful to him.

The disciples said to him “If that’s the way it is between a husband and wife, it is better not to get married!”

Jesus replied;

Not everyone can accept the idea of staying single. Only those who have been helped to live without getting married can accept it. Some men are not able to have children because they were born that way. Some have been made that way by other people. Others have made themselves that way in order to serve the kingdom of heaven. The one can’t who can accept living that way should do so.

Jesus always had to deal with people testing him and he was ready!

When we get married we become one with army, accountability partners. We have to hold each other accountable and be ready to forgive 77 + times.

Moses commanded a certificate of divorce to compromise with the bickering people, but as Jesus said in the beginning it wasn’t all that way. It was we are together, or you’re my partner because God paired us together.

Little children are brought to Jesus

Verse 13-15

The word says some people brought little children to Jesus. They wanted him to place his hands on the children and pray for them. But his disciples tell the people to stop

Jesus responded:

Let the children come to me. Don’t keep them away, the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to people like them.

Jesus placed his hands on them and left

It’s the children that love with an open heart and speaks with honesty on their tongue. It’s when someone tries to keep them away from God it begins to break their spirits and because they are the Next Generation they deserve to be blessed, they deserve to begin their relationship with the Lord as soon as possible.

Jesus and the rich young man.

Verse 16-30

A man comes to Jesus and ask him what good must he do to receive eternal life?

Jesus responded

Why are you asking me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you want to enter the kingdom, obey the Commandments.

The man asked Jesus “which commandment must he obey?”

Jesus answered

Don’t commit murder, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, do not give fault Witness, honor your father and mother mother, and love your neighbor as you love yourself.

The man answered Jesus I have obeyed all those Commandments, what else do I need?

Jesus responded

If you want to be perfect, go and sell everything you have give the money to those who are poor. You will have Treasures in Heaven, then come and follow me.

The young man was sad when he heard this he was very rich.

Then Jesus said to his disciples

What I’m about to tell you is true. It is hard for rich people to enter the kingdom of heaven again I tell you it is hard for a camel to go through the eye of the needle but it is even harder for the rich to enter God’s Kingdom.

The disciples were amazed they asked who can be saved?

Jesus responded;

With man, that is impossible but With God, all things are possible.

Peter asked Jesus what rewards will be given to them, because they left everything to follow him?

Jesus answered

What I’m about to tell you is true. When all things are made new, the son of man will sit on his glorious throne.

Then you will have follows me will also sit on 12 Thrones. You will judge the 12 tribes of Israel. Everyone who has left houses or families or Fields because of me will receive 100 as much they will also receive eternal life but many who are first will be last and many who are last will be first.

In Christ we are all equal and many give up everything that their flesh love to walk right to sleep. And for a mini they will walk in blessing before others many may become a Believer and receive the hundred time blessings right away and others will spend years looking and praying for it. When we look and pray for it on the Earth, we get to receive it in the kingdom of God. We will be first, in life we have unlocked through our prayers what we will recieve heaven.

Amen!

Matthew Chapter 16

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in purpose and building your foundation on Faith here on earth.

I remember a Pastor I loved dearly Pastor M.E Wooton he once gave a sermon and in the sermon he said “if you were a janitor on earth you will be a janitor in heaven.”

This example stuck to me, it made me conscious of what I did. I was about 19 when I heard him say this, I believe those words changed my life and my life decisions and I’m sure that’s what the Lord intended for it to do.

Let’s get into the word of the Lord

Matthew Chapter 16

Verse 1-4

Jesus is asked for a miraculous sign

The Pharisees and the Sadducees came to put Jesus to the test they asked Jesus to show them a miraculous sign from heaven

Jesus replied

In the evening you look at the sky you say ‘it will be good weather the sky is red. And in the morning you say, today it will be stormy, the sky is red and cloudy. you know the meaning of what you see in the sky, but you can’t understand the signs of what is happening right now. An evil and unfaithful people look for a miraculous sign, but none will be given to them except the sign of Jonah.

The word says; then Jesus left and went away.

The word of the Lord tells us that people pay attention to the frivolous signs but the miraculous signs from Heaven is around us consistently.

The Lord tells them you will have your miraculous sign, when you see the sign of Jonah which would be the crucifixion, death, and Rise of Jesus the three days Jonah was in the belly of the big fish.

Verse 5-12

The yeast of Pharisees and sudducees.

The word says that the disciples cross the lake and forgotten to bring bread.

Jesus told them; be careful watch out for yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

The disciples spoke among themselves saying Jesus must have said what he said because they didn’t bring bread.

Jesus knowing what they were saying responded by saying;

Your faith is so small , why are you talking to each other about having no bread?

don’t you understand yet? don’t you remember the five loaves of bread for 5000? Don’t you remember how many baskets of pieces you gathered?

don’t you remember the 7 loads for the 4000? don’t you remember how many baskets of pieces you gathered? how can you possibly not understand?

I wasn’t talking to you about bread, but watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.

The word says; the disciples realized that Jesus was talking about watching out for what the Pharisees and Sadducees taught.

When is disciples were concerned about bread, and the Lord says how can you not understand? it reminds me that the Lord will show us in so many ways that he has got us, all we need is our faith. And we still will be concerned with what that thing that stresses us. the Lord is saying how many times do I have to show you I will take care of you. The Lord says be careful of the people that’s going to tell you the wrong thing.

Be concerned only about what the Lord is telling you watch out for the yeast of people that are not God sent.

Verse 13-20

Peter says that Jesus is Christ.

The word says that Jesus went to caesarea Phillipi he asked his disciples;

Who do people say the son of man is?

The disciples replied some say John the Baptist, other say Elijah, and others still say Jeremiah or one of the prophets

Jesus asked his disciples;

What about you? who do you say I am?

Simon Peter answered; you are Christ, you are the son of the Living God.

Jesus replied;

Blessed are you Simon, son of Jonah! No mere man showed this to you. My Father in Heaven showed it to you.

here is what I tell you. You are Peter. on this rock I will build my church. The Gates of Hell will not be strong enough to destroy it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. what you lock on Earth, will be locked in heaven. what you unlock on Earth, will be unlocked in heaven.

The word says; that Jesus warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was Christ.

What you do here on Earth you doing happen. It’s important for us to be concerned about our behavior. Are you Purpose Driven? or are you just sitting there thirsty but not going to the well?

Romans 1:17 was the first scripture that the Lord had given me; for in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed is how it starts. on Earth we should be unlocking Faith, scripture, and relationship. We should be locking lies, theft and infidelity.

Since I was a child, I always imagined that when I die, I would be walking around heaven with Jesus talking and laughing.

As an adult I like to spend my time in the word of God. my childhood vision taught me that I am a disciple of Christ, and that’s why my glory is spending time with him and that’s my unlock.

Now by far am i perfect so there are things that I have locked and there are things that I am trying to push the door closed. But my faith tells me due time God’s will.

Take the timetm to pray to the Lord about your unlocked in your locked and ask the father to help you discern those things so you can work on them.

Verse 21-28

Jesus tells about his coming death.

The word says Jesus started telling his disciples what was going to happen to him. He told them he must go to Jerusalem, and in Jerusalem he must suffer many things from Elders, the chief priests, and teachers of the law. He must be killed and on the third day rise to life again.

Peter took Jesus to the side and said “Never Lord, this will never happen to you.”

The word says Jesus turned and said;

Satan! you are standing in my way. You don’t have in mind the things of God, instead you are thinking about human things.

Then Jesus spoke to his disciples he said;

If anyone wants to follow me, he must say no to himself. He must pick up his cross and follow me. If he wants to save his life, he will lose it. But if he loses his life for me, he will find it.

What good is it if someone gains the whole world, but loses his soul? or what can anyone trade for his soul?

The son of man is going to come in his father’s Glory. His angels will come with him, and he will reward everyone and keeping with what they have done.

What I’m about to tell you is true. Some who are standing in here, will not die before they see the son of man coming in his kingdom.

Our flesh will always try to tell us that what it wants, is more important than what God wants for us.

Like now, I’m past the deadline for this blog. It should have been published at 10 a.m. My Flesh tells me; oh go scroll Facebook promote your business and post it tomorrow.

GET BEHIND ME SATAN! my spirit answers. I must say no to myself, so that I can find my life. Amen!

Pray for strength in this area, ask God to give you strength to shut down your flesh so that the Lord can be the light. Amen!
