Let’s get into the word of God!!

Matthew Chapter 14

Herod kills John the Baptist

Verse 1-12

The word says Herod heard about Jesus and said he was John risen from the dead, that’s why he had powers.

These verses say that Herod had John arrested and bound because of Herod’s brother’s wife. John had been telling Herod that it was unlawful for him to have her. Herod wanted to kill John but he was afraid because the people considered him a prophet.

On Herod’s birthday his brother’s wife’s daughter danced for him and he was pleased. He told her he would give her whatever she wanted. Coaxed by her mother she asked for John’s head on a platter.

The word says the King was distressed but because of his promise and his guest he followed through.

Herod ordered for John to be beheaded, his head placed on a platter and brought to the girl. She gave it to her mother.

John’s disciples took his body buried it and then went to tell Jesus.

As I was reading the verses. I thought about all the believers that were killed for carrying out their purpose.

John did not keep his mouth shut. He saw something wrong and spoke the words of God against.

Isn’t that our jobs? To be ready to fight for God’s law. We are armed with our sword. As we see John had no problem striking with his.

If you see an eviliness on someone are you going to use your sword to destroy it? Will you sacrifice yourself to save another soul?

*These questions you should take to God during prayer time

Verse 13 – 21

Jesus feeds five thousand

When Jesus found out what happened to John, he went off to be alone.

When the people heard what happen and saw Jesus was in mourning they followed him.

The word says when Jesus saw the crowd he had compassion on them and healed the sick.

As it was getting late the disciples told Jesus to send the crowd away so they can go and buy food. Jesus replied they don’t need to go away, bring them some food.

The disciple answered; we only have five loaves of bread and two fish Jesus told them to bring him the food. Jesus told the people to sit on the grass. Jesus gave thanks for the food and started breaking the bread.

When he was done there were 12 baskets full that were left over. The amount of people that ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

I often refer to this scripture when I answer my children’s request for a friend to eat over.

It’s a reminder that we may never see things as being enough, but God says there’s more than enough

Verse 22-32

Jesus walks on water

After the meal Jesus had the disciples to get into the boat and go to the other side ahead of him

He went to the mountainside to pray. By night he was alone and the boat was a ways from him and was in the mist of heavy winds.

Later in the night Jesus went to them walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him the were terrified, they thought he was a ghost. Jesus told them to be courageous, it was him.

Peter says “Lord if it’s you tell me to come?”

Jesus told him to come.

The word says Peter started walking on the water toward Jesus, but when he saw the wind he was afraid and began to sink, he cried out “Lord save me”

Immediately Jesus caught him and said you of little faith, why did you doubt.

When Jesus got on the boat everyone worshiped him.

You of little faith, why did you doubt. We are disciples of Christ, we should be ready to walk on water because Jesus gave his disciples the power through him.

When we start to walk in power a little wind comes and we get scared. The most important part of this scripture never forget Immediately, Jesus will catch you.

Verse 34-36

Jesus heals all who touch him

When they crossed over, people recognized Jesus and brought their sick to him. Asking if they can touch his cloak, and when they did they were healed.

The faith to know that all you need is to touch him and be healed.

If your faith allows you to be healed what happens when the holy spirit dwells within you

Just a question to bring to God in prayer.
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.

Part 2: My first Holy week Experience part2

Meditation on the cross- we went over the trial when Jesus was brought to Pilate and Herod, The elders of the people were asked, if they were sure they wanted to crucify Jesus Christ and not Barabbas and true to his word they choose to crucify Jesus. I meditated on the thought of pure love and Judgement.  In this modern world we find ourselves being how the elders were to Jesus. To people who are different from what we are or believe in different beliefs. I pray for their hearts. I’m praying for the hearts of the bullies they know not what they do.  I am truly thankful for the love of Jesus Christ he suffered such pain in our name so that we could make it into heaven.

After meditating on the cross. we went home to come back and do the stations of the cross. Let me explain this to you. I am the kind of person that if I am walking through my neighborhood I want to feel like a ninja, invisible. So, leading up to Thursday I was building up a lot of nervous energy, I wasn’t too enthused about walking around the neighborhood with a cross. Also if you read part one My First Holy Week Experience you know that anticipation of THE WASHING OF FEET had me a little mentally warped.  My love for Jesus is what kept e going especially after the noon service and Thursdays washing of the feet.

I participated in my first procession. It was a wonderful moment, we started off on the corner of the street in front of our little church. As we were walking I focused  on all the things in my life that Jesus bare for me. Realizing that he did this for me, so that I can feel his love, so that I can be let into his Kingdom to be with him, and The Father. Thank you, Jesus Christ The Son Of The Living God. In my walk he was still teaching me and I was still listening. Two of my children walk with me, these two are 15 months apart and very close. They sought out Christ and found the church that our family now attend.

Back to the procession , as we reach the 3rd station I here  Pastor call my name. she asks me if I wanted to read I answered sure. I wondered what God had in store for me. You see my mind and my spirit are not in agreement  my spirit is stronger it wants  to be right with God and my mind wants to hide, I was plague with anxiety when it came to people and my body space. And reading out loud.   THERE IS POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS. Jesus has the Power to remove all things against his will and his way.

My reading was when Pilate made a man name Simon from Cyrene who was minding his own business on his was in from the country. to Carry the Cross for Jesus on the walk to Golgotha.As they led Jesus The Way They Came Upon a man of Cyrene Simon by name who was coming in from the country and laid on him the cross to carry it behind Jesus if anyone would come after me let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me take my yoke upon you and learn from me for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

As I read the passage out loud the words hit me, I thought about being the one who washed the feet at the church service and now I’m reading  a passage about the man who was picked to help carry the cross behind Jesus. The unsuspecting person who probably was trying to get home to enjoy the holiday with his family was given such a blessing to be able to help the Lord. We walked we sang songs and praised his name as we remembered what Jesus did for us.

at the end  of the stations some stayed to watch a movie I passed and went home to bake a cake for my son who was turning 18.

Saturday  we met up for  the Easter vigil,  my second born son was baptized. What a wonderful moment  to be apart of. He was over joyed his spirit had come alive. He had been waiting a long time to get baptized. He knew the importance of a baptism.

At this service we began with ending lent we began with a reading from Genesis and a reading from exodus when Moses and the Israelites where getting away from pharaohs army and God opened the sea and the Israelites pass through with a wall of the sea on each side of them.  On their way to the land of milk and honey. And The lord protected them from the Egyptians swallowing them up in the waters. Gods right hand was there to shatter the enemy.  Here we are Jesus  defeated death as he was there with the father saving the descendants of abraham from their oppressors  the Egyptians.

we were again on the sabbath his resting day. Awaiting  the day of his Resurrection. Again Gods  word proven to be The TruTh and the Light. That night Lent had ended and I was pleased with what God had moved in my life, from moving tobacco, alcohol, anxiety and adding a habit  of praise and prayer to my morning ritual.

By the time we reached Easter I was  elated in this Lent I was able to give up alot of things I had not plan to give up, And I aimed to be closer in Gods word. I hope you enjoyed my blog and experience.

Coming up next I will be back studying the book of Mark and scriptures on faith Be Blessed Brothers and Sisters.
