Power and Authority

Blessings everyone,

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

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

Thrust- Push Suddenly

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

There was somethings that I had noticed

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

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

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

Jesus Heals leprosy

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

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

Jesus heals a paralyzed man

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

sometimes we have to shut our mouths

Blessings everyone,

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

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

Luke Chapter 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In Prayer God shows you a vision

we Write it down

we speak on it to everyone

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

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

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

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

Isaiah Chapter 6

Blessings Everyone,

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

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

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

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

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

Let me introduce myself, my name is

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

Let’s get to the Word

Isaiah Chapter 6

Verse 1-16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And Isaiah answered;

“Here I am, send me”

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

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

Make the hearts of these people stubborn.

Plug up their ears, close their eyes.

Otherwise the might see with their eyes,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You won’t be able to move in purpose.

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

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

Isaiah Chapter 5

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

With that being said let’s get started.

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

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

Let me introduce myself; My name is

Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God.

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

Let’s get to the word

Isaiah Chapter 5

The song of the vineyard

Verse 1-7

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I will command the clouds not to rain on it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

To start over

Woes and Judgement

Verse 8 -17

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

The Lord has declared to Isaiah

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So people will be brought low and everyone humbled.

The eyes of arrogant, humbled,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 18-30

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Blessings now for the important part.

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

Be Blessed

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

Matthew Chapter 12

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are moving with the power of God. As your walking through your day, remind yourself that Jesus gave his disciples the power to heal the sick, raise the dead, and rebuke demons so I ask you, aren’t you a disciple use your power today and go forth in faith.

To my followers thanks for joining in I appreciate each and everyone of you. If you were scrolling and happen to have come across this blog, welcome! Thanks for coming. If you are led please follow so that you can receive notifications of new blog post. Let me introduce myself!

Another way that I serve is as a intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint prayer wall, if you would like to be added to the prayer wall you can email me at Fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com. okay lets get into the word of the Lord.

Matthew Chapter 12

Verse 1-8

The word begins by telling us that Jesus and his disciples were walking through a field and the disciples were hungry and begain to pick from the heads of the grain to eat.

The word says when the pharisees saw this they said to Jesus.

your disciples are doing something that is not lawfull on the Sabbath day!

The word says Jesus answered them by saying

Didn’t you read in the scripture about David and his men who were hungry, and they went in to the temple and ate the consecrated bread on the sabbath?

Or what about the priest who break the sabbath and are blameless.

Right now in this place there is one greater than the temple.

If you had known what this means. Then you would know I desire compassion and not sacrifice.

And you would not have

condemned the innocent.

Amen! Glory be to God!!!!

This word reminds me that, when we walk on our journey there will without a doubt be people pointing at everything you do. Ready to say “he/she isn’t really serving God look what they did?”

As a believer/servant you get that all the time. Those actions can take a positive effect or a negative effect. When your dealing with others and what God tells you to do. Concern yourself with the fact that you are not serving them, your serving God and Jesus is greater than the rules and laws that people put on your faith and your journey.

Verse 9 -21

The word goes on to say; Jesus left from there and went to their synagogue. There was a man there with a withered hand and they asked him if it was lawful to heal on the sabbath days.

Jesus answered

If a man had a sheep, and the sheep fell into the pit on the sabbath day, would he not grab it and lift it out.

A man is better than a sheep.

Jesus then told the man to stretch out his hand and it was restored whole.

The word says the pharisees went out and held a council meeting against Jesus about how they might destroy him.

When Jesus knew what they were doing he left from there and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all and told them not to tell anyone. This was to fullfill the prophesy spoken by the prophet Isaiah.

Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgement to the gentiles.

He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets

A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgement unto victory.

The Lord says isn’t man more important than sheep. So if you see someone who needs help and compassion with a little bit of love are you gonna let them suffer. Isnt compassion greater than sacrifice which is what was sat aside for the sabbath.

We learned from Matthew Chapter 10 that when their is trouble people try to bring you down go to the next town go to the next event.

The truth is you’ll be sitting there all day trying to prove your works and word of the Lord to someone who doesn’t really care to say they understand or your right or even Glory be to God. Because we do the works for the Glory of God we can move on because our reward comes from God.

Jesus gave us amazing examples of how to handle ourselves when dealing with others. But most importantly to know that you are walking in the prophesy and all things lead back to the word of God.

Verse 22 – 38

The word says then a possessed man who was blind and dumb was brought to Jesus. And he healed him and the man could speak and see.

The word says the people were amazed and said is this the Son of David (The Messiah)

When the pharisees heard of this they said that Jesus cast out devils with help from Beelzebub the prince of demons.

The word says Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them.

Every kingdom divided is laid waste and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

If satan is casting out satan then how can his kingdom stand.

And if I cast out demons with the help of Beelzebub, by whom do your children cast them out?

But if I cast out demons by the spirit of God has come on you.

How can someone enter a strong man’s house and steal his property, your gonna have to first bind him up, then take his things.

If you are not with me, your against me. And if you dont gather with me you scatter

All manner of sin and blasphemy will be forgiven, but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost will not be forgiven.

Who ever speaks a word against the son of man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Ghost, will not be forgiven on this world or the world to come.

Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt. For thee tree is known by his fruit.

You brood of vipers how can you be evil and speak good things. The mouth speaks what fills the heart.

A good man, with a good heart brings good things, an evil man with an evil heart will bring evil things.

On the day of Judgement every man will be accountable for every careless and useless word spoken.

By your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.

In these verses we learn that the Lord says your kingdom divided will not stand. It brings us back to a family that prays together stays together.

In this generation we must be mindful of how we us our mouths. If we speak good, good we will receive. But the lord tells us one thing for certain, what’s in your heart will for certain come out your mouth.

Verse 38 – 46

The word says some of the scribes and the pharisees answered Jesus saying Master we want to see a sign from you, and Jesus answered

A generation of evil doers and adulterous people looking for a sign, and there will be no sign given, but the sign of the prophet Jonah.

Like Jonah was three days and three nights in the whales belly. Son of man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

The men of Ninevah will rise in judgment with this generation, and will condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold a greater Jonah is here.

The queen of the South will stand up at the judgement against this generation she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and something greatet than solomon is here.

When the unclean spirit leaves from man it roams through dry land searching for rest, he will not find none. Then it will say I will go back to my home from which I came. It will find it empty, swept, and garnished

Then he will go and take with him seven other spirits more wicked then himself. And they enter in and dwell there.

The last state of that man is worse than the first and the same for this wicked generation .

The Lords word is straight and forward here, when we go to the Lord to be clean and walk a righteous life. Are old spurit leaves us and we are gleaning every word we here from God.

You will get tested your faith will be tried and it’s gonna be hard.

When the Lord talks about generations, well we can look around and see my grandmothets generation was nothing compared to my children why because the prophesy must come to pass.

Verse 46-50

The word says as Jesus spoke to the people his mother and brother stood without needing to speak to him.

Someone said to him look ypur mother and brother stands without needing to speak to you.

Jesus answered

Who is my mother and who is my brother

He stretched out his hands toward his disciples

Behold my mother and my brother. For whoever does the will of my father in heaven is my brother, mother, and sister

We Thank you lord for being our everything, for standing in the position as our savior.

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

Matthew chapter 11

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

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

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy

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

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

Matthew Chapter 11

Verse 1 – 6

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 7 – 19

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

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

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

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

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

V16

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 20-30

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 10

Blessings everyone,

I pray you all are doing well and going forward in all things this year.

It’s been awhile so we are still in Matthew and I’m sure it’s for good reason.

To my followers thanks for joining in, you all are amazing and I thank you so much for your support.

If you happen to have been scrolling and stumbled upon this blog, Welcome!!!! Let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, some of the ways that I 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 10

Verse 1- 14

The verses tell us that Jesus called on the disciples to go out and help the people.The Lord gave them power to cast out evil spirits, to heal sickness and diseases.

The 12 disciples names were (in order)

  1. Simon (Peter)
  2. Andrew
  3. James
  4. John
  5. Philip
  6. Bartholomew
  7. Thomas
  8. Matthew
  9. James
  10. Thaddeus
  11. Simon
  12. Judas Iscariot

The Lord sent the 12 disciples to speak to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, they were to heal the sick cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out evil spirits.

They were told to give freely, all the things that were given freely to them

The Lord told his disciples don’t bring any silver, gold, or brass with them, nor clothes, coats, or shoes for the workman is worthy of his meat.

The Lord told his disciples to go into the town and see who is worthy, and when thet go in a house that is worthy let your peace come on it. And if it’s not worthy let your peace return to you.

The Lorf also told his disciples If a person does not receive you or listen to your words, when you leave the house or city shake off the dust of your feet.

As I was learning the verses I was literally living the lesson out ( to God be the glory for discernment and wisdom)

When we go out as disciples of christ we are to go out with the faith that God will provide. Just do the work, the lord will place it on someones heart to satisfy whatever needs you have.

When God places it on your heart to walk in your calling, stand firm in it and do it, allow your works to show you what your worth is.

Verse 14 reminds us not everyone is acceptable to the word of God, some will reject God’s workman, frown their faces at the people that are praising God’s name, or just reading the word of God. Some will try to hurt you and/or shame you the lord says shake the dust off your feet, let that go.

Verse 15 & 16

The Lord says “It would have been easier for sadom and Gomorrah on the day of judgement” the lord tells the disciples ” tionI am sending you out like sheep among wolves be as shrewd as snakes and innocent as doves.

The Lord tells us, we must pay attention to our surroundings and the people in them, remember our righteousness and all we do.

Verse 17 – 23

Jesus prepares the disciples for persecution; the Lord says be on guard against people, they will hand you over to the council and flog you in their synagogues. Jesus tells the disciples that because of who he is they will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and the gentiles.

The word says brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against parents and have them put to death. Jesus tells the disciples all men will hate you because of who he is but the one who stands firm to the end will stand firm.

The Lord says when you are persecuted in one place go to another. He tells the disciples they won’t finish going through the cities of Israel before don of man comes.

As we walk through this life we must be ready for those that look to be the reason for those that look to be the reason we fall or be around when we fall. as a believer this is something that we learn as soon as we give our lives to God, we start to notice attacks from every angle of your life. If your life was Israel, and we listened to the lord we would have to keep moving.

you will see people wanting to put you in a position to seem wrong and to punish you in front of everyone a public humiliation and reticulated. These are the things that happen, when we begin to walk, preach, and teach the word of God.

The Lord goes on to say ” all men will hate you because of him, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved” The Lord says your going to go through it, your going to be attacked, persecuted, and tortured but stand firm hold on you will be saved the father will bring you through.

verse 24 -31

The Lord tells the disciples that a student shouldn’t be above his teacher and nor a servant above his master. It’s okay to be like your teacher or master. In these verses the lord tells us nothing concealed will not come to light. The Lord says what I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight. What is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roof.

The Lord tells the disciples not to be afraid of the ones who kill the body and not the soul, rather of the one who can destroy both soul and body in hell. The Lord reminds the disciples even the hairs on their heads are numbered. we are worth more than the sparrow that the lord spares.

When we become disciples of the holy spirit, messages, lessons download to our spirit man. There will be times that you speak the word of the lord and people will say that you are speaking lies they will try to argue with you about weather the bible is true or false. they will say things that will try to rock your faith. All because they don’t want to believe in Jesus, or the Father. The Lord says no matter what when he teaches us, tells us, shows us we must be ready to open our mouths and speak it, with the confidence that serving God is more important than someone trolling or ridiculing what is said.

verse 32 – 36

The Lord tells his disciples that whoever acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my father.

The Lord says don’t think I came to bring peace. I came to bring a sword

your household will be against each other.

We are not to put others before God. we are to put God before men. The Lord says he was not here to bring us peace. He is here to give us our weapon of defense. Our mouth being the sword and the Lord giving us the power to speak life or death into our lives and someone else.

verse 37 – 42

The Lord tells his disciples if you love your mother or father more than me, you are not worthy of me. If you love your son or daughter more than me, is not worthy.

the word says Jesus said he who finds his life will lose it and he who loses his life because of Jesus shall find it.

He who receive the disciple will receive Jesus, and he who receive Jesus receives the Father.

The Lord says he who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophets reward and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive a righteous man’ reward.

When I read this part of the scripture, it reminded me that when we put others before God we are not worthy of him. Receive Jesus so that you can receive the father. Receive the prophet so that you can receive the prophets reward.

be blessed
