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!

Run the Race!

Blessings Faithwalkers

I pray that you all are walking upright and Blameless!!!

I have been deep into the study of righteousness and was waiting on , instructions on the blog.

Can I be transparent for a moment? It has been a task trying to adapt to the new format of the blog. For a couple of years now I have been doing bible study here on this platform. At this moment in time, I’m just led to talk and share what I’ve learned and I sit here wondering what to say. The Holy Spirit is saying, type about your lesson learned talk about your milestones crossed.

Next to me is a lesson on praise in our righteousness and on the tiltle which will probably be changed it reads the same thing. yet my spirit is not in a teaching moment it;s in a sharing moment .

I guess what I have learned this week is that, this is not my blog, this is not my ministry, my plans are changeable. When we say, I am your vessel Lord use me, expect to be used when ever and how ever He sees fit.

This weekend I completed 40 days of devotionals from my book Service in Glory. I was able to witness the 2 followers have breakthroughs in their lives. that’s what this walk is about. to help our neighbors get to where God wants them to be. assist in the journey.

The Holy spirit is showing me a vision of a person running a race and people standing on the sideline with water, medics ready to repair and ice down an ache.

That’s what help does! As we are running toward God’s purpose for our lives. The water is the word to get you through when your throat is dry from panting in fervent prayer and praise, a medic for when your spirit has been broken, your faith tested. Support to cheer you on the way. Some are there for you and others are there to watch you. Never the less your position is to focus on finishing, you can’t give up even if you have to finish the race on your knees. God wants you to know that He will carry you the rest of the way as long as you are consistent.

The works of our hands are all for God’s Glory Psalm 51:13 tells us that we work and move in purpose so that sinners will turn back to God. They will see our light and move forward. We are drawn to the light when we are stuck in Dark places.

Be Blessed

Listen , If you are stuck in a dark place and desire to be illuminated by the light of God say this prayer.

Lord God ,

I am but a sinner in this word, I do be leave that you have placed me on this earth for your will and your purpose, I do believe in my heart that Jesus is LOrd and came down from his throne just so that I can be seen by the Father. I declare with my mouth That Jesus died for my sins and rose in three days with power, Lord forgive my trangression and iniquities and wash me of my sin whiter than snow so that I  can be a light in this world in the name of Jesus, Amen

Enjoy your journey in Praise

1 Samuel Chapter 16

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings Everyone!

I pray that the Lord is sending you messengers with instructions today, I pray that the Lord is making you a messenger as well. Bless the Lord that he provides what we need and information when we need it. Just as soon as we are going through something he will start to place resources in line that will be just waiting on you to move forward. It takes a building relationship with the Lord.  I’m not saying you won’t go through things, because we know that satan is walking back and forth looking for something to do. What I am saying is that the Lord is waiting on you to show that you are his and you are good and faithful.

To my followers thanks for joining in you are appreciated. If you happen to scrolling and came across this bible study blog, welcome ! thanks for joining in. If you are led please follow so that you can get notification of new post. Let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve new-journey-in-praise-flyeris; I serve as a leader in the Walk It Out group we can be found on Facebook and Periscope. I also serve as the founder of Journey in praise Ministries serving the word of God through Blog, Podcast, and Broadcast. you can got to the Facebook page and get connected to any one of the outlets of journey in Praise. I serve in prayer you can have your name added to the prayer wall by emailing me at fromsinnertosaint@gmail.com. Let’s get in to the word!

1 Samuel chapter 16

Samuel anoints David

verse 1 – 7

The Lord asked Samuel how long he will mourn for Saul, since he was rejected as king of Israel. The Lord tells Samuel to get himself together, fill his horn with oil and be on his way to Jesse of Bethlehem where the Lord had chosen one of Jesse’s sons to be king.

Samuel said to the Lord. How can I do the Saul will find out and kill me. The Lord tells Samuel to take a heifer with him and say he is going to sacrifice, the  Lord tells Samuel to invite Jesse and his son’s to the sacrifice and the Lord will show him what to do. The Lord tells Samuel that he was to anoint the one the Lord has indicated.

Samuel did as the Lord told him. When Samuel arrived in town the elders greeted him with worry they asked him if he came in peace. Samuel told the people that he had come to sacrifice, he consecrated Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.

When they arrived Samuel saw Eliab and Samuel thought that the anointed was already there as surely as Eliab was standing. but the Lord told Samuel not to look at his appearance or his height for the He ( the Lord) had rejected Eliab.

In this scripture the Lord says to Samuel how long are you going to mourn Saul. Sometimes when we are working on something and putting our everything into it and it fails we can go into depression not want to do anything else. But the Lord says how long are you going to mourn it. It’s time to get up and do a new thing. was Saul Samuel’s  purpose? no his purpose was to find a king for the people so now he has to fill his horn with oil and get up and find a king.

The same thing applies to us we may be working on something birthing a new thing in our purpose and then it doesn’t work out the way you want it to. The Lord is saying don’t just sit there and soak about what didn’t work, get up and start the next thing until your purpose is fulfilled.

Really quick, I want to touch on Eliab. Samuel saw Eliab and said “the anointed is right there”. I’m sure his mind said the Lord doesn’t need me. The Lord says to him don’t look at his appearance or his height for I have rejected him. We are reminded that we can not look at someones outer appearance or the stories that we heard about them to compare to ourselves we have to go in following instruction and focused on the instruction. looking at someone else will just distract you from what you are suppose to be doing. There is no need to judge on appearance and word we do not know their heart or their walk with God.

verse 8 – 13

Jesse brought seven sons before Samuel, and none of them were the one that the Lord had chosen. Samuel asked Jesse if he had another son and Jesse told him about the youngest that was tending to the sheep. Samuel told him to go get the son they would not sit down until he came. When Jesse’s youngest son walked in the Lord said to Samuel “Rise and anoint him; he is the one” Samuel took the oil from the horn and anointed him in the presence of his brothers and from that day on the spirit of the Lord came upon David. the word says that Samuel then went to Ramah.

Glory to God let me just say this When in a relationship with God it’s important to move when He says. in order for us to be able to move in what the Lord says we need to ask the Lord to purge us of all things that is not of him. Gory God. Had Samuel not been in a relationship with God he would have anointed the wrong brother. when we don’t follow his instruction we end up in the wrong position.

David in Saul’s Service

The spirit of the Lord had departed from Saul and he was tormented with an evil spirit the word says this came from the Lord. Saul’s attendants suggested that he find someone who can play the Harp for him when the Evil spirit comes upon him and this would make him feel better.

Saul sent his attendants to find someone. One of the servants stated that the son of Jesse plays the Harp and then he begins breaking down David’s attributes. The word say that Saul then sent a messenger to Jesse’s house saying “Send me your son David” Jesse loaded a donkey and gifts and sent David on his way.

When Saul saw David he liked him, he made David his armor-bearer and sent Message to Jesse. asking him to allow David to stay, he was pleased with him. The word says that whenever a spirit from God came upon Saul David would play the Harp, Saul would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.

Glory be to God as I was reading this scripture I had to say “Look at God”. We know that Samuel did not want to run in to Saul. we know that when God’s spirit left from Saul it left a spirit Devastation, depression, Hate, Mourn they all laid on Saul he went from nothing to king but what pained him was he didn’t follow God’s instruction and he knew he was rejected as king. 

The Lord anointing David before he went in to Saul’s house was a blessing. The power of God was with him. His instructions was to be in positions and follow instructions. To stand in his purpose. (Which we know is to take over as king, for God is not a man that he should lie.)

As we walk through this day let’s remember that on a foundation of faith you stand firm, no matter what you have to go through to get there ( Samuel hands were probably sore, he was tired, he missed his sheep, and arguing with his brothers.) When God is with us, and we stay obedient, we stand in Power. Yeah it’s hard at times, you may even fail as Saul did. But it’s your choice to get up and move on as God told Samuel or be stuck with a spirit that reminds you of your failures. To be soothed by the anointing of the person that will take your place. To love him because he did the one thing that put your mind at ease. Stuck in a spirit is conviction of all your shoulda, coulda, woulda’s Remember to follow instructions God told Samuel “How long are you going to mourn Saul? fill your horn with oil and lets go to the next one”

Now for the important part, If you are looking for Salvation and you want to begin building you foundation on faith Download the free bible app, google , or turn your bibles to Roman 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. Start your bible I encourage you to go to this chapter and read it, see what the Lord shows you. A Foundation of faith is built on Prayer, Worship, Word Study, Fellowship and Praise Applying it to your life is staying in position for instructions.

Be Blessed!

Ezekiel Chapter 39

logo_2042734_web

Hey Everyone!

We are blessed to serve a wonderful God who gives us a fresh start everyday. To my followers thanks for joining in. If you are new to this page don’t forget to click the link, and you will receive notification of new post. Let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. This is one of the ways that I new-journey-in-praise-flyerserve the Lord some of the others are. The Journey In praise ministry which is three parts the blog serves as a word of the day, The Podcast serves as a word of encouragement, and broadcast serves as sharing of building a foundation of faith like bricks through the study of christian books. Also there is the Prayer wall if you would like to be added you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com okay let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel Chapter 39

images

In this chapter The Lord tells Ezekiel to prophesy against Gog and say that the Lord will Turn him around and send him against the mountain of Israel. That is where the Lord will strike his bow from his left hand and his arrows will fall from his right hands. On the mountain of Israel is where he and his army will become food to the birds and wild animals.

The Lord says at this time he will no longer make his holy name be profaned. The nations will know that His name is the Holy One in Israel.

The Lord says that their weapons will be used as fuel for the people of Israel, for seven years they will not have to cut down trees because they will use the weapons of Gog and his army. The Lord says they will loot and rob all who loot and robbed them.

The Lord says that He will give Gog a burial-place in Israel, It will block the way of the travelers, because Gog and his Army will be buried there. It will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog. For seven months the house of Israel will bury them in order to cleanse the land. Men will be regularly employed to cleanse the land.

They will go through the land and one man will mark the sites for the gravediggers to bury the bones.

The Lord says to Ezekiel to call all the birds and wild animals and there will be a great sacrifice. you will drink the blood and eat the flesh of great men.

The Lord says from that day the house of Israel will know that He is Lord. all the nations will know that the people of Israel went in to exile for their sin and I hid my face from them and dealt with them according to their sin.

The Lord says I will now bring them  back from captivity and will have compassion on all the people of Israel. They will forget their shame and all unfaithfulness.

After reading this chapter I have been reminded, that God wants us to forget our shame, after we have been cleansed and saved. Sometimes we hold on to the use to; as we are trying to walk in faith. we can’t build a faith like bricks if our bricks are cracked.  cracked bricks will collapse. God wants us to let go of what we once did, he has dealt with us accordingly. Jesus has already died for those sins, he laid it on the cross for us. Saints I tell you what ever wrong you have done that kept you from God, is in the pass it’s on your dirty garment which has been taken off of you. Allow yourself to understand that the Lord has already erased that he turned his back from your sin and he now looks at you with compassion. So if the Lord has turned his back from your sin then you need to as well. It’s the only way for you to build your faith in God that will not allow life’s storms to come and knock you down.

Now for the Important part if you are looking for Salvation if you will like to start a new and be in the presence of God turn your bible, google, or download the free bible app and turn to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. start a prayer life and get in to the word and allow the Lord to turn it around for you.

Be Blessed.

Ezekiel Chapter 34

logo_2042734_web

Hey Everyone!

Thanks for joining in, The holidays are coming and everyone is getting busy. Let’s remember what the Holiday is all about. the birth of our savior without him we would all be sacrificing animals and living a life under the Law.

To my followers Thanks for joining in I appreciate you guys so much. If you are new to this page welcome and thanks for joining in as well. Let me Introduce myself.

 

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the Sovereign God there is nothing new-journey-in-praise-flyerlike serving God. Knowing someone will be introduced, to his love and grace is the best feeling that we can have as a human being. Here on From Sinner To Saint blog is one of the ways that I serve the Lord, through sharing his word with all of you. Some of the other ways is the Journey In Praise ministry which sprouts out three ways. One is the broadcast where we are building a foundation on faith like bricks. you can find me on periscope at @Wilhelmina Lundy and YouTube at Journey In Praise. Next the Lord allows me to serve him through the podcast where you can hear an encouraging word. Praise God, and you can find me on Soundcloud or Itunes Bless the Lord. Journey In Praise can also be found in blog form with the scripture of the day at http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com. And last but not least the Lord allows a prayer wall and here I am able to pray with those who would like to be on the wall. If you would like to be added  to the wall, you can send your name and request to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com Praise God these are the ways that the Lord has allowed me to fellowship with you all. Now that the Introduction is finished let’s get into the word!

Ezekiel Chapter 34 Shepherds and sheep

images

Verses 1 -6

The Lord says to Ezekiel to Prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. the have eaten very well and was clothed yet they did not take care of his sheep. the flock are scattered all over and left to become food for wild animals.

The Job of a leader is important if you allow the lost to roam and not bring him back and nourish him as you should then the Lord will turn his back to you. If we watch someone fall and walk were we know that wild dogs are waiting then the Blood is on our hands. Just like when we have children if we don’t raise out children to know that they eat from the hands of the Lord they will grow astray and eat from the wrong hands.

verse 7 -10

The Lord says the flock lacks a shepherd and has become food for all wild animals, and his shepherds did not search for them, but cared for themselves. The Lord says that he is against the shepherd and will hold them accountable for the flock, the shepherd will know longer feed themselves. They Lord says he will rescue the flock and will no longer be food for them.

When we think about the church and we think about the pastors who are well off without any concern for how the parishioners are, that’s a shepherd only out to feed himself. When a parishioner is lost hurt or whitewashing his faith the shepherd is not worried or concerned about restoring the faith.

Verse 11 -16

The Lord says that He will look after his sheep himself and search for them as the shepherd would do. And he will recuse them from being scattered on the days of clouds and darkness. The Lord says he will tend them on green pasture.The Lord says he will search for the lost and bring back the stray, he says he will bind up the injured and weak. and destroy the sleek and strong.

I want to stop there because If we are too strong then we don’t need God. He comes in to our weakness and becomes our strength am I making sense. there is not one perfect person we all have weakness praise God! we are thankful that the Lord decided to be our shepherd and to lay us in green pastures. Bless the Lord.

verse 17 – 24

The Lord says that he will judge between the sheep that the fat sheep were willing to push the weak sheep out the way. Not only are they drinking clean water they are muddying it and trampling the pasture making it unable for others to eat. The Lord says that he will make his servant David the shepherd.

The Lord tells us that he will judge those that are twisting the word, the food when we sit at the Lords table to eat there are some that will feed us false words corrupt and spoiled food. making our foundation on weak faith. The Lords servants are good shepherds because the move by the word of the Lord. A servants job is to feed Gods people the harvest.

verse 25 – 31

The Lord says that he will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of wild beast, so that they may be able to live and sleep in safety. The Lord says that he will bless his sheep with crops and trees that bear fruit. And they will know that he is Lord.

God wants us to be well he doesn’t want us to hunger for anything, but we have to be ready to eat and have faith like bricks. rest on Ezekiel 34:26-29 and  be assured that the Lord wants to shower us with blessings, He wants us to have crops and pasture, he wants us to have trees that will yield fruit. Praise God.

Now for the Important part. If you are lost and looking for your Shepard. the sovereign Lord is waiting on you. Turn your bible, google or download the free bible app go to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is lord and died on the cross. Believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead then you will be saved. All the Lord to bless you with crops and bountiful trees of fruit.

Be Blessed.

Ezekiel Chapter 32 A Lament for Pharoah

Ezekiel says In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month on the first day the word of the Lord came to him. and told him to take up grieving for Pharoah King of Egypt and say to him.

That he is like a lion among nations, a sea monster and the Lord will cast his net and catch him, and feed him to the birds, and the beast. Allow his blood to flow through the valley.. The Lord says he will bring darkness in the land of Pharoah. The Lord says that he will trouble the hearts of many people, when he brings Pharaohs destruction among the nations.

for those who Pharoah doesn’t know they will be appalled by him, and the kings will be in horror because of him, when the Lords sword comes down each of them will tremble.The Lord will send the sword of the king of Babylon.

In this Chapter the Lord had favor over Nebuchadnezzar to carry out his word and confirm the prophesy of Ezekiel All the uncircumcised would fall those that didn’t praise God and who Idolized in the old testament.

If you are joining me in Journey In Praise Prophet Arise then this chapter shows you exactly what it means that the Lord will confirm his prophets word. He told Ezekiel to grieve for the Pharoah because he was about to lose everything including his life. The Lord surprises no one. whether we listen or not the warning is always on its way.

Ezekiel Chapter 29 A prophecy Against Egypt

In the tenth year, in the tenth month on the twelfth day, the Lord tells Ezekiel to turn his back against Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and all of Egypt. When the people of Israel went to Egypt for help Egypt left them to suffer, and because Pharoah said that the Nile was his and he made it for him self that the Lord will make the land of Egypt a wasteland and no one will live in it for forty years. After the forty years the Lord says he will bring the scattered people back to Egypt and there will be a lowly kingdom that will never exalt it’s self above all the nations.  Egypt will no longer be the source thar Israel runs to but will remind Israel of their sin and then they will know I am the Sovereign Lord.

In the twenty-seventh year the Lord spoke Ezekiel and told him that Nebuchadnezzar was not rewarded for bringing down tyre so he will give him Egypt as a reward to him and his army.

The Lord tells Ezekiel to prophecy against Egypt for the king thinking he made the Nile taking credit for what God made for his purpose and the people for not standing firm when Israel needed them.

God looks at our actions are we willing to help others when they need us or when we are called on will we drop the ball letting our neighbor suffer. Are we going to take credit for works that are not of our own hands. God builds us so that when needed we can stand through a storm and sometimes he makes a shelter so that others can stand under or lean on. If your faith is built strong will you pray for or support your neighbor or will you let them fall or hurt them more.Will you be an Egypt to Israel.

At the end we see that the Prophecy against Tyre had come to pass and the Lord rewarded Nebuuchadnezzar and his army for allowing him to us them and to fullfil the prophesy against Egypt.

Ezekiel  chapter 17 The eagles and a vine

verse 1-6

The Lord to Ezekiel to make a picture and tell the house of Israel a parable. The Lord wanted Ezekiel to tell them about an eagle with powerful wings came to Lebanon. He took off the top of a cedar and carried it to a land of merchants, and planted in a city of traders. He took some of the seeds of their land and planted it in fertile soil where there was a lot of water. It became a low spreading vine which produced branches with leafs on them.

The study bible and the amplified bible says that the eagle here represents Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. Sometimes when we are about to go through something or going through something God will let what we think our worst fear come in and take over. yet it’s our set up for our come up if we just be still.

verse 7 – 10

The Lord tells Ezekiel to say but there was another great Eagle, and the vine sent out his roots toward him for water, from where it was plotted. the vine had already been planted in good soil around a lot of water so that it can produce good fruit and become a splendid vine. The Lord tells Ezekiel to say to them Will the vine thrive? Will it not be uprooted and stripped of its fruit so that it withers? All of its new growth will wither, when the east wind blows ( Hot dry wind blowing off of the desert).

this parable reminds me sometimes we may not be in the place that we want to be but we will be in the place that we will learn the most. trying to find water somewhere else and we are surrounded be water that we think isn’t good enough. let’s move on

verse 11 -15

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and says to Ezekiel ask them if they still don’t know what these things mean?He says that the King of Babylon went to Jerusalem and carried off her king and nobles, he took a member of the royal family and made a treaty with him, putting him under oath. He also carried away the leading men of the land, so that the kingdom would be brought low, unable to rise again, surviving only by keeping his treaty. But the king rebelled against him by sending his envoys to Egypt to get horses and a large army. will he succeed? will he who does such things escape? Will he break the treaty and yet escape?

To answer the Lords questions we learn from the vine that he will wither from the blow of the east wind. It makes me think of the saying your word is your bond. know matter what you don’t like about the circumstances if you make an agreement them you stay true to your word. all a man as is his word it describes his character. 

verse 16- 24

The Lord says as surely as he lives, he shall die. In the land of the king who put him on the thrones whose oath he despised and whose treaty he broke. The Lord has Ezekiel tell the house of Israel that Zedekiah ( the member of the royal family that Nebuchadnezzar put on the throne)  will die because he did not keep his word he despised the oath by breaking the covenant. He gave his hand in a pledge, he made an agreement, and the Lord says he shall not escape. The says that he will bring his oath on the head of Zedekiah and he will be caught in the Lords net.The Lord says he will bring him to Babylon and execute judgment  upon him, the sword and the survivors will be scattered to the wind. At the end of this chapter the Lord says that he will break off the top of a cedar and plant it at the top of the mountain and it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar birds of every kind will nest in it, they will find shelter in the shade of its branches.

If you remember in chapter 16 yesterday we learned that the Lord said that Jerusalem lovers will tear her apart and he will let them so trying to plot against Nebuchadnezzar was going against the Lords convent. What he said would happen to Jerusalem God is not a man that he shall lie. The end of the chapter’s parable was God letting Israel know that Jesus will be coming and he will be the everlasting covenant between God and Jerusalem.

Ezekiel Chapter 14 Idolaters condemned

verse 1-6

Ezekiel says that some of the elders of Israel came to him and sat down in front of him. Then the word of the Lord came to him and says “Son of man, these men have set up Idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all? Therefore speak to them and tell them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: when any Israelite sets up idols in his heart, and puts a wicked stumbling block before his face and then goes to a prophet, I the Lord will answer him myself in keeping with his  great idolatry. I will do this to recapture the hearts of the people of Israel, who have all deserted me for their idols.Therefor say to the house of Israel, This is what the sovereign Lord says: repent! Turn from your idols and renounce all your detestable practices!

For those that go to Gods Prophet or servant after worshipping Idols and putting up stumbling blocks ( circumstances that may keep you from God) the Lord says he will answer them himself  so that he may recapture the hearts of those who turn from him. for his name sake. The Lord will forgive us and change our hearts help us fight those things that keep us from him if we repent of our sins. we serve a God who is faithful to us but most of all we serve a forgiving God who will not take back his words.

verse 7 – 11

The Lord says that when an Israelite or alien living in Israel separates himself from him and sets up Idols in his heart and puts circumstances between themselves and God and then goes to a prophet to inquire of him. The Lord says: I the Lord will answer him myself I will set my face against that man and make an example and a byword . I will cut him off from my people. Then you will know that I am Lord. And If the prophet is enticed to utter a prophecy, I the Lord have  enticed that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand against him and destroy him from among my people Israel. They will bear their guilt – the prophet will be as guilty as the one who consults him. Then the people of Israel will no longer stray from me, nor will  they defile themselves anymore with their sins. they will be my people, and I will be their God, declares the sovereign Lord.

When we are not walking right and we are self proclaiming ourselves as prophets that act won’t go unnoticed by God. The Lord will call you out you will prophecy your imagination and not what the Sovereign Lord has said and he will stretch his hand out against you. The Lord will stop you from putting  a stumbling block between him and his people Glory to god. Thank you Lord, Glorryyyy. I thank my Lord God for Loving us so much that he will stop anyone who thinks that the can block us from him. won’t he do it!

verse 12-20

Judgment Inescapable

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel: He said son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut of its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, even if these three men Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one could pass through it because of the beasts, as surely as I live , declares the sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.

Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, Let the sword pass throughout the land, and I kill its men and their animals, as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.

Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and their animals. as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. they would save only themselves by their righteousness.

These verses are powerful. only you are responsible for your salvation. your walk only can save you, your relationship with God can save you only. just as we are born in our individual bodies one soul one body one salvation, one relationship. I encourage you to get in to the word, begin the relationship walk in your purpose with confidence that God will walk with you Hallelujah!!!!!

verse 21 – 23

Ezekiel says that this is what the Lord said to him: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgements – sword and famine and wild beast and plague – to kill its men and their animals! Yet there will be some survivors – sons and daughters who will be brought out of it. They will come to you and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem – every disaster I have brought upon it. you will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause, declares the Sovereign Lord.

sometimes In our compassion we ask God why? why he does certain things ?  some say well if there is a God why does he allow certain things to happen? why is it that this group of people are going hungry? why are we at war? why are babies dying? here’s your answer Ezekiel 14:21 – 23 reminds us to look pass the horrible actions and look deeper in to the conduct and actions. The famine (Hunger), the plague (HIV, Cancer), the beast (Drugs, politicians) sword ( murders) before typing this I said Lord I don’t want people to get this misunderstood. so here’s how he gives it to me. just in the bible these things go on for generations and though our flesh does not understand its your spirit that seeks God that will give you understanding. we have plagues in a word where we have false prophets giving us a good word to gain a profit. we have Idolizing people are separating themselves from God, people are putting there wants in front of the Sovereign. I know what you’re saying what about those that suffer and know God. at the end of their suffering where are they going. If they know God they bare their cross and then go to the  kingdom. and some will survive and praise his name. Glory to God we have people who have survived cancer we have people going 20yrs HIV positive you have people walking around with a bullet in their head, we have people sober after 15yrs on drugs we have people being pulled out of Jail because the were wrongly accused Hallelujah! his word never changes.

Now for the Important part, If you are looking to begin your relationship with the sovereign it starts with your salvation. google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your mouth, that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get on your knees and talk to God allow him to fill your cracks with putty and wash you clean. Hallelujah! have an amazing day God bless you

Ezekiel Chapter 13 false prophets condemned

verse 1-7

Ezekiel says that the word of the Lord came to him. Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. say to those who are prophesying out of their own Imagination; ‘Here the word of the Lord this is what the sovereign says; Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and has seen nothing! Your prophets O’Israel are like jackals among ruins. you have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the Lord. There visions are false and there divinations are a lie. they say “the Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect there words to be fulfilled. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divination when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken?

I’m sure that you have heard many times to beware of false prophet. In verses 1-7 God is saying to Ezekiel it’s time for you to prophesy about those that are not building anyone, that are speaking their imagination, I have not spoken. In the Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel God is revealed. In our knowledge of the word God will tell us, what is from him and what is from someones imagination. That’s why it is important to move forth in our study and reach to eat from the tree of life. being close to God is living.

verse 8- 12

Ezekiel says, the Lord says to him to say  Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions,  I am against you, declares the sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people, or be listed in the records of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the sovereign Lord. Because they lead my people  astray, saying, “peace,” when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash, therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. when the wall collapses, will people not ask you, where is the whitewash you covered it with?

A prophet is to build the people for whats to come. The Lord tells Ezekiel tell the false prophets that the have led his people astray using the word peace when there wasn’t any peace. The Lord says to Ezekiel to tell the false prophets, that they will not be in the Land of Israel and they will not be listed in the record.

verse 13 – 16

Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. I will tear down the wall you have covered with whitewash and will  level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you will be destroyed in it;  and you will know that I am Lord. So I will spend my wrath against the  wall and against those who covered it with whitewash. I will say to you, the wall is gone and so are those who whitewashed it, those prophets of Israel who prophesied Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her when there was no peace, declares the Sovereign.

The Lord says he will send a storm and tear down the whitewash. If you are built up with weakness when you go through the storm those walls will fall down.

verse 17 – 19

The Lord says to Ezekiel; Now son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people who prophesy out of their own imagination. Prophesy against them and say, This is what the Sovereign Lord says; Woe to the woman who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of my people but preserve your own? You have Profaned me among my people for a few handfuls of barkley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live.

The Lord says to the women who disrespected him for scraps and bread that they have trapped the Lords people, you have killed those that could have been saved. yet spared those who should have been dead. all for your own gain. when you false prophesy you are setting a person up on the wrong road you are selfishly effecting their lives. making them believe that they will be closer to God in the charms and veils.

verse 20 -23

Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people who you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord.Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encourage the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives. therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.

The Lord says that he is against the charms and veils that he is not in it. The Lord says that he will break his people from the power believing in the charms and veils and then they will know that he is sovereign. It makes me think about the television shows selling holy water and anointed oil and prayer clothes making people believe that God will hear them more clear if the do this our sow that. the way to God is in relationship. I don’t like to speak on others ministry but I will tell you before you buy in to all that know where your faith is.

Now for the 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 that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Get your self in to a relationship with God through the Word and allow God to place you on high and order your steps God Bless You
