cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpgcropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that as you are moving forward the Lord is cutting off the people that are moving against your journey and service. Be still and know that we serve a God that will clear the way, and remove all things that will try to distract or stop what he ordained for his people.

Let’s get into the word of God!

Isaiah Chapter 18

A Prophecy Against Cush

Verse 1-7

These verses the Prophet Isaiah tells Gods people that, there will be a time that God will be quiet and he will be cutting off the nations that are gathering against His people.

Gods people will hear the trumpets blow , and the banner will be lifted on the mountain.

The prophet speaks of a people that will see the power of God and bring gifts to Mount Zion.

We are always pushing pass the pressure to get to our purpose and as we are growing there are people that are around us trying to stop our growth and trying to destroy the beauty that God is nurturing in us. 

God will sit quiet and watch. some of us get scared when God gets quiet, don’t ! He is watching and pruning in his Garden. Getting ready for the Harvest.

I hear God saying the seed has been planted, all we need to do is Grow.

 

Blessing If you are in need of Jesus in your life and you want to the Father to come in and do amazing things through you, turn your bible, google or download the free youversion bible app to Romans 10:9 Decree with your mouth That Jesus is Lord  and believe in your heart that God raised

 

him from the dead you shall be saved.

Get yourself into a bible based church, build a relationship with Him  through word study and surround yourself with like minded people and enjoy your journey in praise.

1 Samuel Chapter 14

Jonathan attacks the Philistines

Verses 1 – 14

The word says that Jonathan son of Saul went to the young man who cared his armor and said “let’s go to the Philistines outpost” Jonathan did not tell his father where he was going. Saul was on the outskirts of Gibeah of Benjamin with the six hundred men.

Jonathan told the young man that they “will be going to the outpost of the uncircumcised men and perhaps the Lord will act in our behalf. nothing can render the Lord from saving either by many or by few.” The armor bearer said to Jonathan ” Go ahead; I am with you heart and soul.” Jonathan told the young man ” let’s go, and if they come up to us we will climb up because that will be our sign that the Lord is with us.”

The Philistines saw Jonathan and the young man and told them to come up to us and we will teach you a lesson. Jonathan said to the young man climb up behind me the Lord has given them into the hands of Israel. The word said that Jonathan and his armor bearer killed about twenty men in an area about half an acre.

If you joined into yesterdays study that was a word on faith as Jonathan said no matter how many people are against, if you have faith that God will have favor over you, You will be blessed all you need to do is walk now in faith.

in these verses we see that Jonathan’s faith in God saw him through.

Israel routs the Philistines

verses 15 – 23

The word says Panic struck the whole army and the ground shock it was panic sent by God. Sauls lookout saw the army melting in all directions. saul told one of the men Check everyone and see who has left us. The news came back to him the it was only Jonathan and his armor bearer who was gone.

As Saul was talking to the priest the large volumn of confusion increased in the Philistines camp. Saul prepared his men for battle, even the men who had run off and hid came out with courage. That day the Lord rescued Israel and the battle moved on to Beth Aven.

Sometimes it takes one person to light fire for others to see Gods power. It was the faith that  Jonathan had in God, that brought God into there presence. He didn’t bring the ark, he didn’t a priest, or prophet himself and another faithful man, and God showed up.

When God showed up, so did the courage of others. when we practice Faith others see the reaction. When we show the power of God through our lives and choices our neighbors see, how good God is to us.  This allows them to begin to walk in faith as well.

verse 24 – 48

Jonathan eats honey

The word tells us that the men of Israel was distressed because none of the men had eaten due to Saul bounding them saying, “Cursed is any man who eats before evening comes or I have avenged myself on my enemies”

Jonathan had not been there when Saul told the men not to eat anything. When going through woods the men came to a path were honey was oozing out of honeycombs. Jonathan dipped the end of his staff in it and tasted it, his eyes brightened. One of the men saw this and told Jonathan what his father said. Jonathan responded by stating that his father had made trouble for his country, had the men eaten they would have killed more philistines then they did.

That day after the men had struck down the philistines in Micmash to Aijalon the mean were exhausted the started slaughtering cattle, sheep, calves. the began to eat the meat with the blood. Some one had brought this to the attention of Saul. Saul called his men and told them to bring the cattle and sheep to him and they will slaughter them and eat them. Saul for the first time build an alter after everyone had slaughtered and ate. Afterward Saul told everyone lets go down after the philistines by night and plunder them to dawn, and lets not leave one of them alive. the people replied do whatever seems best to you. The priest intervened and said let’s inquire of God here.

Saul asked God but did not get a reply Saul then asked who had commited a sin, no one came forward so Saul cast the lots and the men where cleared then Saul cast lots between he and Jonathan and Jonathan was taken. Saul asked Jonthan what he had done and jonathan tld him about tasting the honey and then asked. “Must I die?” The men stepped in and said to Saul he the one who has brought the great deliverance?  The men said as long as the Lord lives not a hair on his head shall fall, for he did this today with God’s help. with that Jonathan was not put to death.

Saul stopped pursuing the Philistines, and the went back to there own lands. After Saul had went to rule over Israel he fought their enemies on every side and delivered Israel from the hands who plundered them.

we are reminded where we stand when we walk in faith and in Gods presence. Jonathan showed faith in God through action and I believe God spared his life through the people speaking up.

Through Saul we are reminded of patience and to wait on God. Because saul had not heard from God when he wanted an answer he decided to start casting lots and making decisions. God sparing Jonathan’s life through showed God very much present it just wasn’t time to do what Saul wanted to do and he had to wait.

There will be times when you will get part of the instructions  but then you will wait and in that wait you should be preparing. It’s when we rush without waiting on God’s next set instruction, we began to drop faith and work through our own heart. Obedience in faith is what gets you to the next level.

Now for the Important part If you are looking for Salvation and would like to begin to build your foundation of faith. Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation with Studying the word; worship and praise; prayer; and fellowship. Be Blessed.

1 Samuel Chapter 11

Verse 1 – 18

Samuel says to the people of Israel, “I have heard you all, and I have given you your king”. Samuel tells the people that he is old and has served in his position since he was a young boy. Samuel asked the people of Israel “have I been unjust or stolen from anyone?” The people replied to him “no”. Samuel says then let God be the witness that I have not done anyone wrong.

Samuel begins to tell the people that he is now going to tell everyone all the things that the Lord has done for them and their fore fathers. Samuel says After Jacob went to Egypt they cried for the Lord’s help and he sent them Moses and Aaron who brought the people from Egypt. The people forgot God so He let them into the hands of Sisera and Philistine and the people cried out to the Lord and recognized their sin and Lord sent them Jerub-Baal, Barak, Jephthah and Samuel. He delivered you from the hands of your enemy on every side so that you could live securely.

Then you saw Nahash the king of the Ammonites moving in and you start crying for a king.even though the Lord God is your King.Now that you have your king if you and your king follow the commands that the Lord God gave you then you are good. But if you don’t follow the commands then He will be against you, as he did to your fathers. Samuel tells the people that he will ask the Lord for thunder and rain so that the people can see what evil they did when they asked the Lord for a king. That day Samuel called on the Lord for thunder and rain and there was thunder and rain. The people were in awe of God and Samuel.

These verses reminds me that when we are praying for God to work things out for us and then we try to go another route and start worrying about it ourselves it’s like doubting that God serves as king over us. We do it may times with out thinking. We pray to God for that finacial breakthrough and then we worry about the bills. If you prayed for the breakthrough then the faith should be there to know that he will move you exactly where you need to be.

Every time the Israelite’s faced a worry they turned their backs to what God had already done for them. At times all you need to say is Lord you know what we need, so I know that you will provide. The only thing that we should be focused on is our purposes and assignments which are the bottles of oil that are to be sold to gain income. II Kings 4:1-7

verse 19- 25

The people of Israel said to Samuel pray for us so that we will not die, we have added to our sins by asking for a king. Samuel tells the people do not worry you have sinned but serve the Lord now and don’t turn your back on him. stay away from the idols they will do you no good. The Lord will not reject his people because he is pleased to make you his own. Samuel tells the people I will do my part and pray for you and I will teach you to pray, but if you persist in doing evil you and your king will be swept away.

This chapter is clear as day. God forgives us over and over again as he did with the Israels but we need to walk in away that is pleasing to God. I will repeat this you will have to be in the word, have a prayer life, faith, and fellowship. It’s important to follow instruction the instruction that Samuel gave the people of Israel was you must not turn your back on God and the Lord will not reject you.

Now for the most important part if you are looking for salvation and would like to start your walk of righteousness and build a sound foundation of faith you can download the free bible app, google, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with your heart that Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Get your self in a sound doctrine bible based church and fellowship, study the word daily and enjoy the relationship with God.

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 37 The Valley of Dry Bonesimages

Ezekiel tells us that the hand of the Lord was on him, and he brought him out by the spirit to a valley full of dry bones all over the floor. The Lord asked him, can these bones live? The Lord tells Ezekiel to say to the bones this is what the Lord says he will allow breath to enter you and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am Lord.

Ezekiel says, so he began to prophesy as he was commanded. Ezekiel tells us as he was prophesying there was a noise, and the bones came together. Ezekiel says he looked and he saw tendons and flesh coming together but there was no breath. Then the Lord told him to prophesy breath into them. Ezekiel began to do what the Lord told him and the bones began to breath. The Lord told Ezekiel that these bones represented the house of Israel who said that their bones are dried up and their hope is gone. the Lord said that he will open up their graves and bring them back  to the land of Israel.

This part of the chapter is what many ministers use when preaching. The Lord brought Ezekiel spirit to see what was to come. When we are walking without purpose without God we tend to be like the walking dead moving with nowhere to go, some may feel as id they are at the end of the road and nothing is their destiny. we learn in this chapter that God has the power to bring us in to a new thing to bring us from death and give us what we were born to have, not for us but for his name sake. The Lord shows us through Ezekiel that we have the power to speak life in to others when Gods hand is on us. That’s the important part, we are nothing our words are nothing without the hand and presence of God in our life.

one nation under one king

The Lord tells Ezekiel to prophesy and let the people know that he will bring the people of Judah and the house of Israel and make them one and they will have one king which is David. The Lord says he will make them clean and they will follow his laws under David his servant.

Again we learn that the Lord wants us to be in a great place, he wants us to be well. In order to be in that place, we must listen and be with him. We can not go and idolize positions and habits and expect God to give us what he has put in place for us. He has to be our habit, and our need to be pleasing to him has to come before all things, so That his power can place us where we deserve to be.

Now for the important part. If you are looking for salvation, if you feel as if you need life in your dry bones google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died on the cross for our sins, believe in your heart that God raised him from the died on the third day then you shall be saved. get in to the word start a prayer life and allow the hand of God to be placed on your life.

God Bless You

So the Lord says since you did not prevent bloodshed, bloodshed shall come to you.

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 19

A lament for Israel’s Princes

verse 1 – 14

First for those who do not know Lament means grief or/and sorrow

In the 19th chapter of Ezekiel there are only 14 verse so I will not be breaking them up.

these verse the Lord tells Ezekiel to go to the princes of Israel and ask them if their mother was like a lion rearing up young lions she would teach one son and he would be successful and the nation would rise up and trap him and send him to Egypt. after that prince didn’t have success she would raise up another and he would be mighty and have a strong presence but then the nations would rise up and bring him to the king of Babylon, and put him in prison.

The Lord tells Ezekiel to tell the princes of Israel that their mother was like a vine in a vineyard. She was fruitful and full of branches because of abundant water, her branches were strong fit for a ruler’s scepter.

But it was uprooted in fury and thrown to the ground. It’s vines consumed by fire. No strong branch left on it.

If you haven’t guessed it this is the story that we learned in Chapter 17 this time the Lord is saying that the mother was a vine she nurtured, feed , and taught her sons how to be rulers the first cub Jehoahaz The King of Judah( who was taken captive by Egypt 609B.C) Next the second cub Jehoiachin (who was taken captive in Babylon) then Zedekiah was planted as ruler and reached to Eygpt and withered its vines them burning by the east wind (the Babylon a)

As Parents we look at these little people and we rear them to be all that they can be. we want them to be successful and concur anything that tries to come in their paths. For the mother of the Kings of Judah yes she made sure her sons learned well enough to be great but yet it would be the actions of their nation who would hand them over to their enemy. This story being a Lament for Israel.

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 you shall be saved. Get in to the word and enjoy a relationship with sovereign God.

Ezekiel Chapter 18

Happy Monday Everyone,

I pray that you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed a bit of time to yourself. It is important to the betterment of you that you take a moment to build yourself. make some time to just sit with God and wait for him to give you instruction.

For those who do not know my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is through this bible study blog. This is where I come to you guys with the word of the Lord so that we can spend sometime with God. Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,  a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, the righteous will live by faith. This tells us through the word, God will reveal himself and build our faith. Glory to God.

Ezekiel chapter 18

The soul who sins will die

verse 1 -3 

Ezekiel says the word of the Lord came to him and said ” what do you people mean when you quote the proverb ‘The father’s eat sour grapes and the children’s teeth are set on edge’ ” the Lord says’ “surely as I live you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. for every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son – both alike be long to me.The  soul who sins is the one who will die.

The Lord says in these voices know the son wont reap the father’s actions but you all belong to me everyone is responsible for his on salvation so weather our fathers walked upright or sinned has nothing to do with what we will have to face. you sin you die.

verse 5-9

The Lord says that a man who is walking upright and follows his decrees,who treat people with honesty and respect, and gives to the poor is a man who will surely live. Glory to God.

The Lord reminds us that we are here to do right and live unpunished walking in his way and listening to his voice knowing right from wrong and abiding by them treating our brethren fair and giving to those who have not.  

verse 10-13

Tells us that a man who sins and does detestable things will surely die his blood will be on his own head. he knew right from wrong.

verse 14 – 17

The 14th verse starts out saying suppose a son sees all the sins of his father, and even though he see’s them he doesn’t commit them he will not die for his father’s sins he will live for living upright.

Verse 18 -20

These’s verses say to us the righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him. A son who is seeing to it that he follows the laws and Decrees of God s=hould not have to pay for his fathers sins, his father will die for his own sin.

verse 21 – 24

The Lord says to Ezekiel If a wicked man changes his ways and stops sinning then he will live none of the sins that he committed will be remembered . If a righteous man turns away from his righteousness then he will not live and none of his righteous acts will be remembered. He is more pleased when the wicked changes his ways and lives then the Death of the wicked.

Verse 25- 32

The Lord address Israels opinion that he is unjust reminding them that he will save the life of a man who was wicked and decided to turn from all the wicked things he did and save his life. why shouldn’t the man who was righteous die after being righteous and then turning to wicked. He willingly decided that he didn’t want to follow the laws of God.

This chapter reminds us that if we do wrong we reap the consequences. all the Sovereign Lord wants us to do is be in a relationship with him. the more we study and stay in the word the closer we get to him the more we want to please him.
