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.

  • if you are wondering who I am please go to the about me section where you can introduce yourself and get to know who I am. also if this word blesses you, you can follow and like. so that you can get notifications of new post Be Blessed

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!

Isaiah Chapter 14

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are proclaiming the victory, that God has already set forth on your journey.

Sometimes life Will hold us captive by all the things that we are afraid of and hold is stuck and unable to see the victory or even expect the victory. Claim your unseen Victory in the name of Jesus.

Let’s get into the word of God

Isaiah Chapter 14

Verses 1-23

The Lord told Isaiah that the Lord will have compassion for the Isrealites. They will take on foreigners and be given their own land and will hold their captors captive, they will rule over their oppressors.

The Babylonian King believed that he was bigger than God and so God will break his staff and sweep away their land.

As I read this word I thought about how our spirits can be held captive by people who want us to believe what they say about us.

They are holding our purpose captive. When we are still in God we wait patiently for God to break us free.

When he does he puts us in a position where we are great in his Glory, he loose are tongue for hos Glory.

Those who held our purpose captive then become captive by the works of our purpose

Verse 24- 27

Isaiah attached the prophecy to what had already been fulfilled on the Assyrians. This was most likely done to remind Israel when the God of host says something, than it is so.

Reminding Israel that Babylon will fall and be trampled as Assyria had. Nothing and no one can stop or change that.

Gods word has always stood firm, one thing for sure is when he says something it sure enough is coming.

He may show a sign, He may comeover you while reading a Scripture. He may even whisper it to you.

You’ll get a chill over your body that, some will get a peace in their soul and others willhave a visitation by the Holy Spirit.

However you get that message know that His word is unchanging.

Verse 28- 32

The third section is Judgement on Philistine.

The Lord sends a message through the Oracle (Prophet) that He will rise his people up from under them. And it will be the Philistine that will suffer.

The Lord will bring famine and the remainder (survivors) will be put to death.

Does the words “May God have mercy on your soul”

How about “First will be last, and last will be first.”

Let’s look at it as instructions on leading a righteous lifestyle.

We must be careful how we treat others, especially those less fortunate then ourselves. We must becareful who we give the Glory for our blessings, teachings, or testimonies.

We Can not place ourselves higher than the throne of God (self pride)

Be Blessed

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,

in Jesus name Amen

Blessing everyone,

I pray that you are seeking to ne in the comfort of God!

This small chapter has a whole power punch for our walk.

It reminds us that even when we fall or slip God turns his anger from us.

To trust and not be afraid, to rejoice and praise God’s name.

God is our salvation waiting to dust us off and bathe us in his Glory

No matter what we are going through or what we may had done wrong, God is there calling our names looking for us.

Be Blessed

Let me introduce myself, my name is

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

Let’s get to the Word

Isaiah Chapter 6

Verse 1-16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And Isaiah answered;

“Here I am, send me”

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

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

Make the hearts of these people stubborn.

Plug up their ears, close their eyes.

Otherwise the might see with their eyes,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You won’t be able to move in purpose.

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

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

Isaiah Chapter 5

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

With that being said let’s get started.

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

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

Let me introduce myself; My name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God.

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

Let’s get to the word

Isaiah Chapter 5

The song of the vineyard

Verse 1-7

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I will command the clouds not to rain on it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

To start over

Woes and Judgement

Verse 8 -17

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

The Lord has declared to Isaiah

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So people will be brought low and everyone humbled.

The eyes of arrogant, humbled,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 18-30

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings now for the important part.

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

Be Blessed

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, some of the ways that I

new-journey-in-praise-flyer

serve is as the founder of From Sinner to Saint Blog and prayer wall (If you have a request you can send an email to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com) I also serve as the founder of Journey in Praise Ministry http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com . Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.
Matthew Chapter 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

Be Blessed

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

Matthew Chapter 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.

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!

Let’s get into the word of the Lord

Matthew Chapter 17

Verse 1-13

Jesus is transfigured on the mountain

The word says; after 6 days Jesus took Peter, James, and John the brother James Jesus led them up a high mountain by themselves.

The word says Jesus transfigured( transform into something more beautiful or elevated) himself his face Shone like the sun, his clothes became as white as the light. The word says just then Moses and Elijah appeared in front of them the word says Moses and Elijah was talking to Jesus.

Peter said to the Lord that it was good for them to be there and he offered to put up three tents one for Jesus one for Moses one for Elijah.

The word says while Peter was still speaking a bright clouds surrounded them a voice from the cloud said, this is my son, and I love him. I am pleased with him, listen to him.

The word says; the disciples heard this and they were terrified, they fell with their faces to the ground.

The word says Jesus came and touched them and said;

get up, Don’t Be Afraid

when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

Jesus and his disciples came down from the mountain. On the way down Jesus told them

Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, wait until the son of man has raised from the dead

The disciples asked Jesus “why did the teachers of the law say that Elijah has come first?”

The word says Jesus replied;

To be sure Elijah comes and will restore all things but I tell you Liza has already come and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished in the same way the son of man is going to suffer at their hands.

The disciples understood that he was talking about John the Baptist.

Praise God, could you imagine going up the mountain, and the cloud coming down on us? or standing there and watching Jesus Transfiguration?

As we are walking by faith, and walking toward righteousness, we should be seeing ourselves transfigured before our own eyes.

The presence of Moses and Elijah with Jesus allowed the disciples to understand that Jesus was here to fulfill the prophecy of God’s law in the words of God’s prophets.

Verse 14-21

Jesus heals demon possessed boy

The word says; that when Jesus and his disciples came to a crowd, a man approached Jesus, and knelt in front of him and said “Lord have mercy, on my son.” The man continues by telling Jesus, his son has seizures and because of his shakes he falls in the fire or into the water the man tells Jesus he brought his son to the disciples but they could not heal him.

Jesus replied;

You unbelieving and evil people! how long do I have to stay with you? how long do I have to put up with you? bring the boy here to me.

The word says; Jesus ordered the demon to leave the boy and it came out of him, he was healed at that very moment.

The word says the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked him why they could not drive out the demon?

Jesus replied to them

Because your faith is much too small. What  I.m about to tell you is true. If you have the faith as small as a mustard seed, it is enough.

You can say to this mountain ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move nothing will be impossible for you.

The word says; they got together in Galilee there Jesus said to them

The son of man is going to be handed over to men. They will kill him, on the third day he will rise from the dead.

Then the disciples were filled with deep sadness.

Remember that even in Jesus ‘s home town he didn’t do many miracles, the scripture says because their faith wasn’t much.

Miracles, signs , and wonders appear when we have even a mustard seed of faith. If you don’t believe that God can fix it because you can’t see the way then don’t expect to see a miracle.

The Lord tells the disciples that he will be handed over and killed, and rise three days later.

Verse 24 -27

Jesus pays the temple Tax

The word says; Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum. The tax collector came to Peter and asked him if Jesus paid the Temple Tax. Peter replied “Yes he does”

When Peter went into the house Jesus asked him,

What do you think Simon? Who do the kings of the earth collect taxes and fees from? Do they collect from their own sons or from others?

Peter answered “from others.”

Jesus replied:

Then the sons don’t have to pay, but we don’t want to make them angry. So go to the lake and throw out your fishing line. Take the first fish you catch open it’s mouth and there you will find  the exact coin you need. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.

Isn’t it something that the Lord knew what was going on outside this reminds me that the Lord confirms the word of his prophets and servants. Peter was willing to lie to avoid any trouble. Not noticing that his lie would’ve given them more troubles than needed.

Just as soon as Peter walked into the house Jesus addressed it. and provided a way for the words from Peter may be confirmed. this was another reminder of the tongue speaking life and death.

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

Let’s get into the word of the Lord

Matthew Chapter 15

Jesus teaches about inner purity

Verse 1- 20

Some Pharisees and scribes from Jerusalem came to Jesus and asked him why his disciples violate the tradition handed down by the elders. They stated to Jesus that the disciples don’t wash their hands before they eat.

Jesus replied;

Why also do you violate the commandments of God for the sake of traditions. For God said

‘Honor your father and mother amd he who speaks evil of or insults or treats improperly father or mother is to be put to death’

But you say if anyone says to father or mother whatever I have that would help you is given by God, he is not to honor his father or his mother.

So by this you have invalidated the word of God, for the sake of your tradition

You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you.

‘These people honor me with their lips,

But there hearts are far from me.

They worship me in vain,

Their teachings are but rules taught by men.

The word says Jesus called the crowd and said

Listen and understand;

What goes into a man’s mouth doesn’t make him unclean

The word says then the disciples came to him and asked

“Do yo know the pharisees were offended when they heard this?

Jesus replied;

Every plant that my heavenly father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man both will fall into a pit.

Peter asked Jesus to explain the parable to them.

Jesus asked

Are you still so dull?

Don’t you see that whatever enters the miuth goes into the stomach and then out the body?

But the things that comes out the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man unclean.

For out of the heart comes evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immortality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what makes a man unclean; but eating with unwashed hands doesn’t make hom unclean.

Praise God!

At times we are so focused on tradition that we forget about the laws.

Some people may say that they don’t like going to church because of the hypocrites. You know the people that wear white on first Sunday. These are the people who roll their eyes and suck their teeth at someone because they had blue on.

Not concerned that you may not be able to afford anything white.

They honor God with their lips, but not their heart. They are more worried about us following man’s rules than following God’s law.

Let’s remember it’s not what goes in our mouths that matter, it’s what comes out our mouths that make us clean or unclean.

Verse 21-28

Jesus sends a demon out of a girl.

The word says Jesus wentro the region of Tyre and Sidon. A canaanite woman from that vicinity camm to him crying out, ‘Lord son of David have mercy on me. My daughter is suffering terribly from demon posseession

The word says Jesus did not answer and his disciples urged him to send the woman away, because she kept crying out to them.

Jesus answered

I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel

The woman went up to Jesus and knelt before him.

“Lord, help me” the woman said

Jesus replied

It is not right to take the childrens bread and toss it to their dogs.

Yes , Lord she said “but even dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the masters table.

Then Jesus answered

Woman you have great faith! Your request is granted

Her daughter was healed from that hour.

The faith, just a little bit will do Lord. A mustard seed miracle Abba!

After I read this verse I thought back to the end of chapter 14. The Lord was in his hometown, the chapter ends with he didn’t do many miracles, because the lack of faith.

I hear the Lord say; we all may pray, but some lack the faith to follow through.

When we are moving toward God or believing God for something. Our faith must allow us to believe that even a small amount, even a crumb from the masters table is more than enough.

El Shaddai~God All mighty, all sufficient

Verse 29 -31

The crowd marvels at Jesus’s healings.

The word says Jesus went to the sea if Galilee, he went up to the mountain and sat down. Crowds came to him bringing the lame, blind, crippled, mute and many others laying them at his feet, He healed them. The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the cripple made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. They praised the God of Israel.

Could you imagine being a witness to these miracles.

How much faith is surrounding him? You have to believe that when he touches you, when he looks at you, when you touch him or just to be around him you are healed.

Verse 32- 39

Jesus feds four thousand

The word starts by saying Jesus called his disciples to him and said

I have compassion for these people.

They have been with me for three days and have nothing to eat.

I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way.

Jesus’s disciples asked where could they get the bread in such a secluded place?

Jesus asked them

How many loaves do you have?

They replied Seven.

Jesus told the crowd to go sit on the ground. Jesus took the seven loaves and fish. He gave thanks and broke them up handing a piece to his disciples and the disciples handed pieces to thw people.

The word says they all ate and were satisfied. Afterwards the disciples collected seven baskets of the broken pieces that were left over. That day four thousand men ate, not including women and children. After Jesus got in the boat and went to the vicinity Magadan.

Hallelujah! What a way to end a chapter. We are shown no matter what, no matter how many times with faith The Father will come through and when he does there will be more than enough.
