Matthew Chapter 16

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

Let’s get into the word of the Lord

Matthew Chapter 16

Verse 1-4

Jesus is asked for a miraculous sign

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

Jesus replied

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

The word says; then Jesus left and went away.

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

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

Verse 5-12

The yeast of Pharisees and sudducees.

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

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

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

Jesus knowing what they were saying responded by saying;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 13-20

Peter says that Jesus is Christ.

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

Who do people say the son of man is?

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

Jesus asked his disciples;

What about you? who do you say I am?

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

Jesus replied;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 21-28

Jesus tells about his coming death.

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

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

The word says Jesus turned and said;

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

Then Jesus spoke to his disciples he said;

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pray for strength in this area, ask God to give you strength to shut down your flesh so that the Lord can be the light. Amen!
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. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Job Chapter 2

Hello everyone,

Praise God are you walking with God  today. On this Friday step in to faith and take the risk on your purpose and ask God to light a fire on your Journey. To God be the Gloryyyyyy.

TGIF to all my Followers thank you for your support I love you all with the love of God, If you are here for the first time welcome praise God!  thank you  for joining in, if you enjoy the bible story please click the follow button so that you can receive new bible study notifications.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant  of God who enjoys sharing the word. If you have a prayer request you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com please make sure that you leave your name and prayer request. Also you can find us on Facebook like the page and you will get this blog and Journey in praise, I do go live on facebook and share inspiration post and videos. Praise God. 

Ok now that all that is out the way, we can Jump in to chapter 2 of Job

Job Chapter 2

Second test

On another day the angels came before the Lord and satan was with them to present himself. The Lord asked satan “where have you come from?

Satan responded “from roaming back and forth through the earth. The Lord said to satan. “Have you considered my servant Job? He is blameless and upright a man who fears God and shuns evil and still maintained his integrity though you encouraged me against him to ruin him without any reason.”

Satan replied skin for skin a man will give all he has for his own life but strike out at his flesh and bones and he will surely curse you to your face.The Lord says to satan very well, then he is in your hands but you must spare his life.


Satan went back to the earth and afflicted Job with sores from the bottom of his feet to the top of his head. Job took a piece of broken pottery and scraped himself with it as he sat in ashes.

Job’s wife said to him, are you still holding on to your integrity, why don’t you curse God and die already.


Job said to her your talking like a  foolish woman. Shall you accept good from God, and not trouble?

In all that is going on Job did not sin in what he said.

Job’s Three friends


Job’s  three friends got together and decided to go to Jobs house and sit and sympathize with him. When they saw him from a distance they tore thier ribes and sprinkled dust on their heads, and sat with Job for seven days and seven nights in silence, because they saw how great his suffering was.

When we look at the book of Job it reminds us that we should praise God in good times and in bad times. 

That it is apart of our tests, a lesson, in all that is going on, what is bad or traumatic we have to learn how to get to our knees and praise and worship. We can’t only give him the glory when the times are good and we are receiving his blessings. 

That’s like when we get mad at a friend that only comes around when we are celebrating or have money to spend we  feel as if we are being taken advantage of. Our God sees  and hears all so do think that you can pull a wool over his eyes. 

Also I want you to think about  how we think selfishly satan was quick to say that let it be pain to Jobs body for sure he will curse God. In this day will you curse God if your body fell ill with sores or would you bow down and thank him for your life.

I’m going to leave you with that, have a wonderful weekend and I will catch you monday with chapter 3 of Job God bless you all.

Now for the most important part if you are looking for salvation Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9, and confess with your mouth and believe with your heart that Jesus died on the cross and God raised him from the dead you will be saved. open the door for a wonderful relationship with our Sovereign God Jesus Christ.

Appreciation

Hey Everyone,

I’m hoping and praying that your day is going in a positive direction. I’m going to get right on in to it today I hope you don’t mind.

So I’m home way early from work. I came home hurt and Emotionally bruised and when I got home and told Abba he told me I was being pleasing to the wrong persons. My Lord gave me a job to do. So I’m going to be pleasing in that Job

I won’t go through what happen because I have been put back on my track by the Lord but what I will say is that God will sometimes show you who is paying attention they won’t align with what you’re saying.

People need to be appreciated you can’t go through praising those who don’t care and ignoring those who care eventually the person who cares will find someone to appreciate them. It’s organic of us to want the Gold star especially a hard worker.

I was reminded today that God is the one who validates our hard work not people and when you realize that people can’t stamp your validation card you can feel a great relief because some people are not of God and would never understand until God has shown them.

What I am saying is that Don’t allow someone who’s not spiritually where you are make you feel like your work isn’t appreciated or make you feel like your over exaggerating because God may have made you sensitive and emotional and that’s okay. This Woman of God appreciates you for moving forward in God, and appreciates you for who God has made you to be, she appreciates you for letting God use you and move you forward and be great and all you do.

God Bless you guys, I’ll see you later with scripture

ROMANS 12:1

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all are enjoying your Tuesday we are getting closer and closer to summer vacay here in the North East and we are very excited. This is a busy week for my family we have our third Son Graduates from Elementary and My Last Son and child we lovingly call Monsta or number 5 will be graduating from Pre K on his way to kindergarten so the scripture won’t be long but they will be meaningful

Okay let me introduce myself. my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and that’s pronounced Wil- a- mena  Lun- dee and I am a Woman of God/ Blogger/ Periscope Host/ online store owner but what I love the most is Woman of God I love sharing the word of the Lord. To my followers Thanks for Joining If this is your first time thanks for stopping in.you all are appreciated. If you are in agreement of what I am saying please click the like button and follow  if you haven’t already.

Romans 12:1

New International Version (NIV)

A Living Sacrifice

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Amen this scripture means so much to me, it’s why I am  writing this blog and why I do a lot of the things I do. I am honoring God through my works he is so awesome that I offer my body to him as a living sacrifice so that he can use me for his good.

The great thing that God has done was give us the opportunity to release ourselves and allow him to use us in our weakness. giving up everything we do in praise

As I am watching my sons begin a new journey in their  young lives If they didn’t know the Lord I would be worried, this year I’m excited for my sons they are going out into another  level and have nothing but great Giants to conquer.

I tell you the Lord wants you to allow him to conquer those Giants with you. Don’t let anxiety win, and grab your happy by the neck. What we have here on this Earth is time, it’s how you spend it. why not live it to the best. that’s how the Lord wants you to be striving for greatness and showing how great he is.

That doesn’t mean having the best Job based on society it means having the best Job to you that caters to your gifts,  don’t get me wrong if you want to be better at your profession he will work through you there too. but what ever it is, do it for the Lord. Do it in Praising make it great as and offering to the Lord.

Be joyful be Blessed

Release

Amazing things can happen when you release yourself you can actually gain a active state of mind exercising the limbs that were meant to move for a purpose. standing in one place will always cause a cramp. Be Blessed ~ Rita~

emotion code

This was my Facebook Status a second ago I rushed over to the WordPress tab which was already open. (I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about) to share with you guys. “these words is EVERYTHING” that’s how the young kids say it. writers know this feeling we can spend all day writing, editing, researching and when we stand up our body cramps OUCH.

I was able to see a list of all the wonderful opportunities I have been able to take, I am so appreciative of God for allowing me to be released to not allow anyone else inequities effect my will to live. because I was given such a release and a renewal of faith it has allowed me to be used in such an Amazing way. I am so thirsty for the Word of the Lord and the more I learn the easier it is to have faith and be faithful. If you had a great Idea today and didn’t follow next time that happens just try just take a chance, you take chances everyday why Not on something that’s feels right. Something you know has God on it.

Judges 6:36-40

Hey everyone,

I hope this blog has reached you right on time. First things first, to the Followers Thank you for taking the time to read this Blog I know you are busy writing and living in your best. I appreciate you guys. If this is your first time thank you for clicking the visit button. you are appreciated If you like what is here Please tap the follow button so that you can stay up on the new posts.

for those who do not know who I am, I am Wilhelmina Lundy that’s pronounced Wil-a-mena Lun-dee and I am a woman of God, a blogger, an online business owner, wewin sister and a periscope broadcaster @Wilhelmina Lundy where I discuss the weekly lesson in the scripture and Journey in praise. While all those hats are so lovely the best is woman of God, Because boy oh boy how I love to serve the Lord. He brings me so much Joy. welcome to my corner of wordpress. ok now lets ;continue in Judges we are on Gideon’s journey in chapter 6 If you didn’t catch the previous blog.

Judges 6:36-40New International Version (NIV)

36 Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised— 37 look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will knowthat you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.” 38 And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.

39 Then Gideon said to God, “Do not be angry with me. Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece, but this time make the fleece dry and let the ground be covered with dew.” 40 That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.

Captive to Conqueror4 I  was always looking for a sign, always saying “If God just showed me a sign. then I would do this Idea I have” sometimes the sign is the Idea.

Gideon says ok Lord if it’s really me, If I’m going to be the one who saves Israel then I’m going to lay this wool fleece down on the threshing floor, and if there is dew only on the wool then I’ll know It’s me. Now lets remember we learned yesterday that Gideon was raised believing in idle gods, so the one and only God, the God of his forefathers was now calling on him.

The next morning only the wool had dew on it. ok now, alright Lord now your sure it me, so Gideon says don’t get mad but let me ask one more thing , this time dry the fleece and put the dew on the threshing floor.

God has no problem telling us what he wants. we have a problem excepting that someone thinks we’re that great, that we can achieve this important task that we are given, with the gifts that he made us special for.

this passage also shows us that God  will never stop showing us that he is here, He has our back. He answered Gideon’s request, to build his faith in God. Remember just the day before Gideon was praising Ba’al.

For the task at hand Gideon needed faith in the Lord God, to be able to allow the Lords spirit to strengthen him where he was weak. To accomplish the task at hand. God wanted to use Gideon, and Gideon wanted to be used.

Faith

Praise God I hope you enjoyed the word!!! all Praise to the Almighty God. Don’t forget to be encouraged to do your best at everything you do and have faith that God will strengthen you where you are weak. God Bless you

If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time

Really quick I received a prayer for those who want to accept Jesus Christ in to there lives. that is the first step the prayer comes from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. It says pray a prayer like this.2
Dear Lord Jesus,

I know that I am a sinner,
and I ask for your forgiveness,

Judges 6:25 -35

Hey everyone,

I hope this Blog has reached you all in happy scrolling and you all are having a wonderful hump day. first things first to my followers; Hey there everyone welcome back you all are appreciated thank you for clicking the visit button and continuing to read more, Praise God. If this is your first time on my little corner of word press Thanks a million for clicking the button. If you like what you read please follow ,and to everyone if you are in agreement with the word please like and comment I love hearing from you guys.

Who am I? I am Wilhelmina Lundy that’s pronounced Wil- a-mena Lun-dee and I am a Woman of God, a Blogger, an online business owner,and a periscope broadcaster.and I love it yes that’s a lot of hats. The hat that I love the best is woman of God If you haven’t noticed yet I love Jesus.

Now that the intro is done, let’s get into scripture I have been studying the book of Judges I can’t exactly remember how I got to Judges but I am very excited about the things I have learned. At this point I feel like I am unsure some times, like Gideon saying ok Lord if it’s really you do this, show me that,but we will get in to that later.

Judges 6:25-35New International Version (NIV)

25 That same night the Lord said to him, “Take the second bull from your father’s herd, the one seven years old.[a] Tear down your father’s altar to Baal and cut down the Asherah pole[b] beside it.26 Then build a proper kind of[c] altar to the Lord your God on the top of this height. Using the wood of the Asherah pole that you cut down, offer the second[d] bull as a burnt offering.”

27 So Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the Lord told him. But because he was afraid of his family and the townspeople, he did it at night rather than in the daytime.

28 In the morning when the people of the town got up, there was Baal’s altar, demolished, with the Asherah pole beside it cut down and the second bull sacrificed on the newly built altar!

29 They asked each other, “Who did this?”

When they carefully investigated, they were told, “Gideon son of Joash did it.”

30 The people of the town demanded of Joash, “Bring out your son. He must die, because he has broken down Baal’s altar and cut down the Asherah pole beside it.”

31 But Joash replied to the hostile crowd around him, “Are you going to plead Baal’s cause? Are you trying to save him? Whoever fights for him shall be put to death by morning! If Baal really is a god, he can defend himself when someone breaks down his altar.” 32 So because Gideon broke down Baal’s altar, they gave him the name Jerub-Baal[e] that day, saying, “Let Baal contend with him.”

33 Now all the Midianites, Amalekites and other eastern peoplesjoined forces and crossed over the Jordan and camped in the Valley of Jezreel. 34 Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Gideon, and he blew a trumpet, summoning the Abiezrites to follow him. 35 He sent messengers throughout Manasseh, calling them to arms, and also into Asher, Zebulun and Naphtali, so that they too went up to meet them

Captive to Conqueror4

 

Now Gideon was a farmer, his Family were Israelite’s but prayed to false gods Baal and asherah. at this time Midianites were oppressing Israel the Midian army would come and sweep through the  crops and the Israelite’s would hardly have a harvest left. The Lord’s angel said to Gideon that he will raise him against the Midianites. Gideon was like not us uh no Lord, we are weak, But God.

Let me walk you through this, Gideon is the 5th Judge he came after Deborah and Barak. Before Gideon could go to the next level the spirit of the Lord told  him to Tear down his fathers Alter to Baal and cut down the Asherah pole, then the Angel of the Lord tells him to build a proper Alter to the Lord God ,Higher. Using the wood from the Asherah pole. Also The spirit of the Lord told him to offer the second  bull as burnt offerings. When the towns people saw this. (I love this part) they were angry and said to Gideons father: where is your son? he must die for breaking down the alter, so Gideons dad says to them If Baal has a problem let him come and handle it he should be able to defend himself. who ever fights for him shall be put to death. Everyone backed off and called Gideon Jerub baal and said let baal deal with him.

After building the Alter to God and showing his faithfulness The spirit of the Lord came on to Gideon and he Blew his trumpet.

Listen, this is beautiful we can’t just run and do what God wants us to do. He first prepares us so that our hearts and praise is right, Gideon couldn’t go to battle and have an Alter and a pole dedicated to false Gods in his backyard. The Lord wasn’t going to work with that. The Lord God is the only one worthy of High praises. So he said Gideon this is what your going to do and Gideon did it. because he knew that only the Lord can bring them out of the oppression. As he had down many times before

when Gideon sounded the trumpet thru the spirit of the Lord their came his back up now Gideon had the beginning of a strong Army.

Let me take this moment to talk to you guys. When we walk with God we are strong and mighty because the spirit of the Lord is with us. there isn’t any idolizing so basicly you can’t Idolize on what you may have went through as a child, teen or young adult. Now yes some of us have had some really crappy childhoods, but I’m going to tell you something my aunt said to me when I was thirteen. God bless the child that’s got her own, baby you down seen so many downs, you don’t have no where else to go but up.you can’t allow something to have such a control over you that it runs your life.

You can’t not smile and be grateful for your BRAND NEW DAY. to try again, and push hard. I have said this before try something new, and you know what ? when everything in side is giving you cons, then your the Pro, so just do it. You are the reason You were made to be Great you are special. Forget what anyone else says. yeah it’s hard. People are the seen, in the now. God you can’t see. If you believe in Ghost, why isn’t God with you? Why can’t you have his spirit cheering you on?  smiling down on you as you work hard on being great. Take a pottery class, write a blog, vocal lesson start a YouTube channel create a hat every day. and Praise God it will be a wonderful hat  because the spirit of the Lord helped you create it.

I hope you enjoyed the beginning of Gideon one of Gods Judges tomorrow we will be in verse 36-40. please google or open your bible and enjoy the book of Judges.

If there is anyone out there looking for the Lord, he has been waiting for you, Confess with your mouth and your heart that Jesus died for your sins, that Jesus is the Son Of The Living God. Turn your bible to Romans 10:9 -13, get yourself in a bible based church and start your fellowship with the one who loves you.
Be Blessed everyone until next time
