*please read the chapter to get your own Revelation

1 Samuel Chapter 17

David and Goliath

verse 1 – 11

In these verses we learn that Israel lined up to battle the Philistines. Goliath stepped out at nine feet with a challenge, If any one can kill him then the Philistine’s would be servants of Israel and if he beat the person then Israel would be servant of Philistines. Goliath stated to the men that he was defying and breaking Israel ranks and was challenging any man. His words terrified Saul and his men.

When  I was reading the verses two words came to me spirit. BOASTFUL & FEAR. When we come up against that great challenge in our lives, it may be boastful when we look at it. “You can’t have a financial break through” “Look at me,I am too high of a goal for you to reach” “letting me go! you’ll be nothing without me”. Not being able to do that one great thing, or let go of that one painful thing, will post fear in position to block you. In the scripture Goliath’s main job was to discourage and post fear in position for an attack.

verse 12 – 37

The word says that for forty days Goliath would call out his challenge every morning and every evening. Jesse, Davids father sent him to take somethings to his brothers and to there commander and go back with a report on how everyone was doing. David packed up and took his journey, when he arrived to the camp he saw that the men were on the battle lines and greeted his brothers.

The word says that David then heard Goliath bringing out his challenge. David was told that the king will pay the man who would take the challenge well, for taking down Goliath. David asked “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”  When Davids older brother Eliab heard him speaking to the other men he became angry and told David to go back to his sheep he was just there to watch the battle. What David had said got back to Saul and Saul sent for David.

The word says that David took the challenge. Saul told him that he was just a boy and couldn’t beat a man who had been fighting since his youth. David told Saul that He had to fight lions and bears to get his sheep back. The same God that was with him then is with him now. Saul told David to Go and let the Lord be with him.

I’m sure you seen so many kind of people in these verses. When we are trying to walk in righteousness or just walk in our purpose there are going to be people who think they know your intentions (Eliab) , and then there’s going to be people who will discourage you ( Saul) . It is by faith that we live, the faith that God will come in and move us in his power. The faith that lets us know that we are over comers. David didn’t understand how these men feared Goliath, he asked where is their faith?

verse 38 – 58

The scripture tells us that Saul dressed David up in his tunic and armor, David walked around in it to get a feel but didn’t feel right so he took off everything grabbed five smooth stones and went to meet the Philistine.

When Goliath saw young handsome David he had gotten upset, he began to tell David that he will give him to the birds in the air. David told Goliath that the battle is the Lord’s and the Lord will deliver him into the hands of Israel. The word says Goliath started to rush toward David and David ran to the battle line put his stone in the sling and swung it the stone his Goliath on the forehead and the stone sunk in killing Goliath he fell face down to the ground. David ran up to Goliath took his sword and cut his head off. When the Philistines saw that Goliath was dead, they began to run away in fear and the Israelites began to chase them to Gath. The word says; when Saul saw David kill Goliath he asked his commander “whose son David was” The commander answered by telling Saul that he didn’t know. when David returned to from killing Goliath he was brought to Saul and was asked who his father was. David replied “Your servant Jesse from Bethlehem”

The story of David and Goliath will always be an over comers story. Even  when being discouraged David still went forward. When Saul tried to dress David up in his things, that was like saying David wasn’t good enough. After walking around a bit in Saul’s clothes it didn’t feel right. So what did David do, he took it off and went to the battle as himself. It’s when we bring ourselves to the battle we show God that we have faith in him to do what is needed . Not for our sake but for his sake. So they will know that He is Lord. On the first shot the stone killed Goliath. We have to put the stone in the sling shot and go to the battle line. Taking the faith that God is has created you for this purpose, then take the shot knowing that he is with you.

Now for the important part, If you are looking for  Salvation and don’t know where to start your journey download the free bible app, google or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord believe in your heart that God raise him from the Dead then you shall be saved get yourself in to the habits of building  a sound foundation in faith.

1 Samuel Chapter 16

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.

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!

1 Samuel Chapter 5

Hello Everyone,

I pray that you woke up in praise on this Tuesday morning. The Lord has blessed us this day another chance to get it right and make it happen for his name sake. Put a praise on it.

Here is where we get together and share the word of the Lord for daily bible study. If you enjoy the study please follow so that you can receive notification of new post. Don’t forget to follow the Facebook pages. 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.

1 Samuel Chapter 5

1-samuel-1024x576the Ark in Ashdod and Ekron

verse 1 -5

The Philistines took the Ark to Ashdod and the put it in Dagons temple. the scripture says that the next morning Dagon had fallen  on his face in front of the Ark. They placed Dagon back in his place and the next day he had fallen again this time his head and hands had been broken off and placed on the threshold. The scipture says that no one steps on the threshold in Dagons temple.

Praise God! to put a representative of God in a place where you worship Idols, no way your coming back from that. As I was reading this word I thought about how it is not good to  sit on the fence when it comes to our walk with God. We can’t be out to serve God and walk with him and do the things that the Lord is not for. I remember when I first started this walk and I was still smoking and drinking wine, I one day had a vision of the holy spirit leaving me because I couldn’t let go of the cigarettes I was placing the cigarettes (my idol) over God and forcing God to be around it. Then I prayed for the need for it to be broken from my spirit and that’s exactly what happen. The next day the desire for the cigarettes were gone. When we idolize something and put it before God, our faith and need to be pleasing to God allows the spirit to come and break that thing. it’s built on a foundation of faith that he is able. The fact that the Philistines feared God was acknowledgment that they had faith that he does exist, and can destroy them.

verse 6 – 12

While the Ark of God was in Ashdod the hand of God was heavy on the people. Some ended up with tumors and others died so they decided to move it to Gath. In Gath it did the same, so the people got together with the elders and they decided to take it to Ekron when the people of Ekron saw that the Ark was coming and there was an out cry. The elders decided to send the Ark back. The people of Gath, Ekron, and Ashdod died and for those who didn’t die they suffered with tumors. The cry went up to heaven.

This chapter makes me think of the power of God in chapter four yesterday we saw that when the Israelites learned that the Ark had been captured the suffered an outcry. Eli and his family suffered death, they felt that God had left them. depending on the power of God as christians when we fell he’s not around we feel lost like Israelites. Now for the Philistines they worshipped Dagon and feared God The power that the Ark had on them was afflicting tumors and death. They new they were doing wrong taking the Ark of God, and almost expected repercussions.

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.

Ezekiel Chapter 40 – 43

In this chapter Ezekiel is taken in to a vision and God shows him the Temple and the measurements .

If your saying is that it, I’m saying no. As I was reading the chapter and the measurements, the spirit reminded me that when God gives us an assignment he gives us all the details. He doesn’t say that it’s going to be easy, he doesn’t say it’s going to happen right away, he just shows us how wonderful it will be if we persevere through all the hard work. When we fall in line to his plans, He will provide the material we will need, he will even provide the measurements. We just need to provide the faith that we are worthy of his Love and he Loves us enough to want greater for us. A foundation built on a faith like bricks.

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.

logo_2042734_web

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.

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 30 A Lament for Egypt

Verse 1 – 4

In these verses the Lord tells Ezekiel to wail for Egypt because the day is coming that the Lord has warned,the cloud will come and be over Egypt. The sword will be against Egypt and anguish will come to Cush when they fall in Egypt the wealth will go away and everything that kept Egypt going will be torn down.

verse 5 -8

Cush, Put, Lydia,Arabia will all suffer and fall with Egypt all of the allies of Egypt will fall and so will the strength of Egypt fail. from Migdol to Aswan this the Lord Declares. They will be empty and the land around them will be empty and they will be among ruined cities everything around them will be destroyed. The Lord says then they will know that I am Lord when I set fire to Egypt and all her helpers are crushed.

verse 9 -12

The Lord says that he will send messengers out to frighten Cush. The Lord says he will put an end to a large group of people in Egypt by the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. He and his army will be brought in to save the land. They will fill the land with the slain and the Lord says he will dry up the Nile and sell the land to evil men; and the hand of foriegners.The Lord will make the land and everything in it a waste. The Lord have spoken

verse 13 – 19

The lord says that he will destroy all the idols and put and end to the images in Memphis. There will no longer be a prince of Egypt. The Lord will spread fear throughout Egypt and set fire to Zoan there will be no upper Egypt. and inflict punishment on Thebes, his wrath will be poured out on Pelusium, the stronghold of Egypt. Storms and swords will over take these cities and they will go into captivity. When the yoke is broken from Egypt her proud strength will end says the Lord and they will know the He is Lord.

verse 20 – 26

In the eleventh years in the first month on the seventh day the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and says the he as broken the arm of  Pharoah king of Egypt and it has not been splinted and can not hold a sword. The Lord says he will send the King of Babylon and he will go up against the King of Egypt. the Lord will have broken both of the king of Egypt arms and he will groan before Nebuchadnezzar like a wounded man. the king of Nebuchadnezzar arms will be strengthened. and when the Lord puts his sword in the hands of the king of Babylon then all the people of Egypt will be scattered then they will know that He is Lord

Praise God, as I was reading this chapter my mind kept thinking that no enemy can stand against my God , No enemy can harm his people they will not get away with it. I serve a strong and mighty God. If you were with me through the book of Daniel then we know that this was a come up for Nebuchadnezzar. It shows why the Lord had given Nebuchanezzar all those years of  going out of his mind when he thought he was responsible for his success. We Learn that the Lord will position us to build our kingdom to be great rulers of our household. So Think about all the things that we think we want and doubt God can give us wondering how.  If he did it before, he will do it again. He has the power to take from the undeserving and give to the deserving. He has the power to hand your enemies over to you. 

It’s not something we pray for it’s moving one person out the way to bless many people. Taking from that selfish person and giving to that person who will feed millions. remember to sow into others their business, ministries, products because God sowed in to you when you needed.

Be Blessed.

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.

Hey Everyone

Ezekiel Chapter 28

verse 1 -10

The Lord told Ezekiel to tell the ruler of Tyre that his pride in his heart  made him think that he was god in the heart of the seas. but he was only man not god. Even though he thought he was as wise as god. The Lord asked Are you wiser than Daniel? Are secrets hidden from you?

Through wisdom and understanding you gained wealth for yourself and gold and silver in your treasures, by your trading skills you increased your wealth and because of your wealth you have grown proud.

Ezekiel tells the ruler of Tyre the sovereign Lord says because you think you are wise as god. I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of the nations, they will draw their swords against you. You will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. Will you then say you are god, in the hands of the ones who slay you.

When dealing with success we have to be as humble as we can be. acknowledge that the Lord is the reason for all that we have. we can not feel as if we are zero no higher, that we are untouchable. when we act as if we are god due to our success the fall is hard. It ‘s a trip with a belly flop to the ground at the end. In every successful action don’t forget to give God the Glory and thanksgiving for his favor and presence over your life.

verse 11 – 19

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and he says the sovereign Lord you were perfect and beautiful, you were in Eden and all stones adorn you, you were a guardian cherub. you were blameless till wickedness was found in you. it spread and you were filled with violence and you sinned.

The Lord says i drove you out and expelled you. your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. I throw you to the earth and I made a spectacle of you before kings. You have come to a horrible end and will be no more.

That’s exactly how we need to look at it, when you do something wrong you are risking your place in Eden think back to Adam and eve, when we think we know more than God then it’s time to go.

Prophecy against Sidon

The Lord says to Ezekiel to prophecy against Sidon and tell them that the Lord says he is against them, and he will gain glory with in her. When he inflicts punishment on her and shows himself holy within her, with the sword on every side then they will know that he is Lord. No longer will the people of Israel have malicious neighbors. Then they will know that he is Lord.

The Lord says when he gathers the people of Israel up he will show himself Holy. then they will live in the land that he gave his servant Jacob. They will live there in safety, when he rids them of the neighbors who tried to get them to do evil, then they will know he is Lord.

As any father the Lord has always rid his children from people who would try to malice (entice with evil)  them. Have you ever been in a position where you had a friend that always tried to get you in trouble, and the Lord would rid them from your life. It’s important that we don’t allow them back in. Even now the father is concerned about making sure you receive the blessings he prepared for you. Glory to God.

Now for the important part. If you are looking for salvation. Google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible toi Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. read the word daily and spend time in his presence, he’s waiting on you.
