Isaiah Chapter 26

A song of Praise

This chapter is a song that will be sung in the land of Judah,

The song starts of speaking of a strong city whose Salvation is like a defensive wall, The gates open to righteous people, that live by faith.

The Lord will give them peace because the trust in Him. The trust in the Lord forever because He is the Rock of eternity.

The Lord humbles those that want to be higher than others, he is going to bring them low to the ground, and the feet of the oppressed and poor trample it down.

Jesus (the upright one) makes the way of the righteous smooth, we wait for Him and your name the son of God (Renown.

The song continues my soul yearns for you morning and night, when your judgement comes upon the Earth.

The Lords hand are lifted on High, may the people see the Lords Zeal foe his people, and be put to shame. Lord you provide peace for us and all that we have accomplished has been done through you.

We honor your name only,

The Lord has enlarged the nations.

The song ends hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.  The Lord has come from his dwelling to punish the people of the Earth for their sins.

First let me remind you that you should be reading your bible with this blog, I paraphrase. So, It’s just snippets from the word, sometimes more than others. Okay Verses 1-4 is how we as believers should be living our lives. The salvation of God should be covering us like a defensive wall; if our souls was a castle than our salvation will not let anyone in, they should not be able to break that rampart down. That’s why we don’t come down from reading our word, prayer or worship it’s like taking the wall down.

Those who think that they are better than the less fortunate will be brought down to humbleness, the word says they will be low as the ground and the poor and oppressed will trample them. Jesus will make the path smooth for the righteous. The Lord gives us peace and, in the day, when He returns the word tells His righteous ones to hide during the time that the Lord is punishing the sinners, until it’s time to come out.

Amen

For the ones that are reading this blog trying to find a way to be in the presence of God, to be filled with peace and love, but do not know, how? Turn your bible, download the youversion bible app, or google, Romans 10:9, Decree with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raise him from the dead, you shall be saved. Find yourself a bible- based church and begin word study, you can start here with us, fellowship with like- minded people and begin building your foundation on faith.

Enjoy Your Journey In Praise!

Isaiah Chapter 25

Praise to the Lord

Verse 1- 12

This word starts off with the Prophet Isaiah praising and exalting God, He says “for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.

Isaiah speaks of the Lord taking down a city to a heap of ruins, the strong hold of the foreigners will be no more and never rebuilt.

And so, the strong people will honor you (Speaking to the Lord) cities of ruthless nations will revere (Respect) you.

Isaiah says in his praise to the Lord, that He (the Lord) will be a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy and their distress and a shelter from the storm. (Hallelujah) A shade from the Heat. (My God)

Isaiah goes on to say that on the Mountain the Lord will prepare a feast of rich foods for all people, a banquet of aged wine, the best of meats and the finest of wines.

On this Mountain he will destroy the shroud (a garment the dead are wrapped in) that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; He will swallow up death forever.

Isaiah says He will remove disgrace from the earth.

In that they will say

“Surely this is our God;

We trusted in Him, and He saved us.

This is the Lord, we trusted in Him;

Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

The word goes on to say that the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain, but Moab will be trampled in their land. God will bring down their pride, despite the cleverness of their hands.

 

Amen, Amen, and Amen her lies a word for those of you who are beginning your prayer life

verse 1-6 is great for beginning praise. we serve a God who has covered us, who has prepared a healthy and rich feast by people that he has improved over the years (aged wine) the feast is fulfilling with the best of meats (the word).

In this chapter we learn that the Lord and savior is coming to swallow death forever and wipe away the tears from our faces. Even more reason to glorify God.

We also learn that the strongholds will be no more, the Lord will bring them down to dust.

Glory Be to God

If you are looking for God to redeem you and set you up on a mountain for this wonderful feast. Turn your bible, google or download the free youversion bible app go to Romans 10:9; Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your that God raised Him from the dead then you shall be saved. Find a bible-based church, get yourself into daily bible study, you can start right here with us, and begin fellowship with like minded people. Blessing and the peace of God, remember

Enjoy Your Journey in Praise!

Isaiah Chapter 24

logo_2042734_web

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your day, I pray that you all are in praise to God, that he saw fit for us to walk in another day. It’s good to be in praise but our praise becomes authentic when we know why we are in praise. A genuine praise opens the room for the spirit of God.

If you happen to have been scrolling and stumbled on this blog welcome! If you enjoyed the word and the study please follow so that you can get notification of new blogs. If you’re a follower, welcome back! I appreciate your support to God be the glory for your fellowship. For those who do not know who I am let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant for the kingdom of God. Some of thenew-journey-in-praise-flyer ways that I serve is as the Founder of this blog and prayer wall, Author of Service in Glory devotional and Founder of Journey in Praise Ministry.

Isaiah Chapter 24

The Lords devastation of the Earth

The prophet Isaiah starts by saying the Lord is going to turn the Earth to waste. The word says that the Earth will be plundered. The Lord says that the Earth has been defiled by it’s people ( I’m side eyeing, as I’m thinking about what is going on now ) 😒

The word says that they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statues and broken the everlasting covenant, it’s people must bear it’s guilt.

It goes on to say; all joy turns to gloom, it follows with all joyful sounds are banished from the Earth (v11)

Isaiah says the people are all happy and singing ” Glory to the righteous one” but  he sees the unseen and they will fall. the Earth will shake and the people of the Earth will fall in a pit, those that climb out will be trapped. The Prophet says the moon will be dismayed  (confused) the sun ashamed (hide) In the brackets is the words the Holy spirit gave me while reading this word.

The Chapter ends with “For the Lord almighty will reign on mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before it’s elders- with great Glory.

Can I say that this Chapter had me in my feelings. First it took me awhile to glean from this chapter. usually I will read and the holy spirit will jump right in and teach me. But In the beginning of the year I had a dream involving the ground opening up and fire falling from the sky and landing on me but I did not get burned, my family and I actually got out of the town safely To God be the Glory. that dream kept interrupting my lesson.

I believe we all quietly worry about the end of the Earth and pray that we are doing all that we need to do, before Jesus comes back, it almost makes me want to be like Abraham and say Lord if their are 10 good people will you save the Earth.

This prophecy is why servants are so important, we want to be able to saturate the Earth with praise to heaven. There is so much hate self hate; lack of humanity; selfishness that I believe the Father is in heaven SMH’n ( you know what I mean).

What I ask you to take away from this chapter is give God praise, help someone find there self on the remnant side of this battle, help your neighbor make praise a habit. No we can’t change the Prophecy God is not a man that He should lie, but he is coming back for the church, so when you look to the left or to right, try to help the person you see prepare themselves for that Journey.

Blessing If you would like to start your relationship with Our Lord and Savior, do me a favor, turn your bible, download the youversion bible app, or google; Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get yourself in a bible based church,  start your word study, and find yourself a group of like minded individuals to fellowship and begin to build your foundation on Faith!

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 8

logo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in obedience, and making sure that you have your ears to Gods lips. As I was finishing up this chapter I meditated on how can I make sure that I give God the Glory in all things concerning me, that includes trials and tribulations, rocket fire and waits.

When we pray for God to come in and hand our enemies to us, kick down doors that we though were cemented we must be ready to welcome God in to our environment. This chapter was a sneak peak of what happens when God turns his back on us and treats us as we treat Him.

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 8

Verse 1-10 Isaiah and his children as signs

These verses tell us that the Lord told Isaiah to take a scroll and write on it  with a regular pen Maher – Shalal- Hash- Baz (Quick to plunder, swift to the spoil) and so Isaiah called on the witnesses  of the priest Uriah, and Zachariah son of Jerberchiah. Isaiah said that then he made love to his wife the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son and the Lord told Isaiah to name him Maher -Shalal-Hash-Baz. Isaiah says that the Lord said before the boy knew how to call out for his parents the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.

The Lord spoke to Isaiah again telling him that because the people rejected his presence and rejoiced over the fall of Rezin and the son of Ramaliah, the Lord is about to bring on them a mighty floodwaters of the river.

The king of Assyria and all his army will overflow through the towns and cities and fill up the land.The word goes on to say that the Lord tells Isaiah to tell the people, they will be shattered into pieces. Listen for countries, prepare yourself but you will be broken. Make plans, but it wont come to anything, speak your plans, but it won’t come to nothing, because God is with us.

 

These verses show us how powerful God is when we turn our backs to him. When we do not follow instructions and when the Lord decides to confirm his word. When we apply this word to our lives it starts with our faith.

The Lord will confirm his word. In Chapter 7 the Lord says that Rezin, Syria and the son of Ramaliah would not get their way. even though the prophecy was confirmed the people still turned their backs on God rejoicing the fall but not giving God the Glory.

We can not pray and beg God to deliver us and then when he shows up not bother to give Him the praise and the Glory for taking care of us.  We learn in this chapter that something bigger than what we first feared will be the end result. No matter what you plan to get out of it, your still going to feel it.

We must give God the Glory when He comes through in your life. We should be on a “As for me and my household” Level with our praise.

verse 11-22

The word says that the Lord spoke to Isaiah with a strong hand (seriousness) that he (Isaiah) should not walk in the ways of the people. not to say conspiracy concerning all things the call a conspiracy, nor should he be afraid of their threats, nor trouble. you should Hallow in him, lets Him be your fear, let Him be your dread. He will be a stone of stumbling, a rock to trip on, to both the houses of Israel. A trap and snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and many among them shall stumble over them then they will fall and be broken and even be cornered and trapped.

Bind up the testimonies and seal the law. (here’s your ark) among my disciples and I will wait on the Lord who hides his face from the house of Jacob and I will look for him.

Isaiah says listen carefully “Here am I and the children the Lord gave to me. we are signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts who dwells in mount Zion.”

And when they say to you seek those who are mediums and wizards,  who whispers and mutters, should not a people seek their God? Should the seek the dead on behalf of the living? Direct them to the testimonies and the law. If they do not speak according to this word, that is because there is no light in them.

Those that seek any one other than God will go through life deeply distressed and hungry (empty) and they will become enraged and curse their king and their God as they look upward, and they will only see darkness and distress. When they look at the earth, and they will be driven away in darkness and overwhelming night.

We are placed in some difficult surrounding around people that have zero light. If we are not careful their speech can easily become our speech. As believers we must focus only on following the word of God and listen only to those who walk with the light of God in them.

When we are not filed by the glory of God, we are walking around anxious and hungry, frustrated and tired, that position will place you in darkness.

If you find yourself listening and following the ways of the “they’s” you will find yourself empty and hungry, because you are looking for answers to life from the dead,

 

Hey! If you want to be in the light and get your answers from the one true living God turn your bible, download the free bible app or google Romans 10:9

Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead, you shall be Saved.

Start your relationship with God by reading this chapter in your bible and let the Lord tell you what you need to know. get your self into a sound doctrine bible based church and begin your fellowship with followers of Christ Jesus

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 7

Blessings everyone,

It’s been a while, right? Thanks for hanging in there. To God be the Glory we have walked in Faith and have relocated to Myrtle Beach S.C. can I tell you that when you walk in faith you Will find your smile.

I have walked with my head down and my heart on God, can I tell you, that when you are able to look up and see Gods work and Gods love, you will get to feel a wholeness with your spirit.

I do believe that my time with my head down and my heart on God allowed him to come in and fix the places that needed to be fixed and then I longed to look up.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. What new-journey-in-praise-flyerI do is allow God to use my mouth and hands for his will and walk by faith. Some of the ways that I serve God is here on this blog, I am the founder of Journey in Praise ministry and lead intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint Blog. I also serve on the leader board for Walk it Out Ministries. You can follow me of Faceboo, Twitter, Instagram, and periscope @WilhelminaLundy.

Lets get into the word

The miraculous signs of Immanuel

verse 1-9

The word says Rezin and Pekah the kings of Aram and Israel, went to fight against Jerusalem, but they couldn’t over power it.

The royal family of Ahaz the king of Judah  was told ” The army of Aram has joined forces with Ephraim army.” Ahaz and his people were scared. The word says they trembled like trees in the forest when the wind blows.

Isaiah says the Lord said to him “Go out to see Ahaz, take your son Shear- Joshub with you. Meet Ahaz at the end of the channel that brings water from the upper pool. It is on the road to the washer man’s field. Tell Ahaz, be careful. Stay calm, Do not be afraid, Do not lose hope because of the burning anger of Rezin, Arom and the son of Remaliah.

After all, they are nothing but  a couple of pieces of smoking firewood. Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have planned to destroy you. They said let’s march into Judah and attack, lets tear everything down. Then we could share the land among ourselves, and we can make Tabeel’s son king over it”

The Lord says to Isaiah “But I am Lord and king. I said that will not happen it will not take place. The capital of Aram is Damascus and the ruler of Damascus is only Rezin. don’t worry about the people of Ephraim, they will be to crushed to be considered a people.

That will happen before 65 years are over the capital of Ephraim is Samaria and the ruler of Samaria is only Remaliahs son. If you don’t stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.

In faith we know that God’s word is confirmed, life brings fear to us and we don’t want to face the winds and the shaking trees but in these verses we learn that God says; don’t fear and don’t allow a negative distraction  to intimidate us, our main focus is to make sure we stand in faith, and stand firm.

Verse 10-25

The word says the Lord spoke to Ahaz through Isaiah saying; I am the lord your God, ask me to give you a miraculous sign. He can be anything in the deepest grave or in the highest heaven.

Ahaz answered saying he won’t ask, he won’t test God.

Then Isaiah said, listen members of Ahaz  family isn’t it enough to test man’s patience? are you going to test the patience of God? The Lord will give you a miraculous sign. The virgin is going to have a baby. She will have a son and he will be called Immanuel.

Their will be a time we will have to decide what is wrong and what is right. He will only have butter and honey to eat. But even before that the land of the two kings you are afraid of will be completely destroyed.

The Lord will bring the king Assyria against you and He will bring him against your people and the whole royal family. It will be a time of trouble unlike any since the people of Ephriam broke away from Judah.

The word says at that time the Lord will call for the Egyptians and they will come like flies from streams of Egypt. He will call for the Assyrians, they will come like bees. They will all come and camp in deep valleys, caves and water holes.

Isaiah tells Ahaz at this time the Lord will us the Assyrians to punish you. Ahaz had hired them earlier. Now their king will be like a razor in the Lord’s hand, he will shave the hair from your head and legs. He will also shave off your beards.

A man will only be able to keep one young cow and two goats alive. But they will give enough milk and butter to live on. All those who is left will have only butter and honey to eat.

The land that once had 1000 vines worth 25 lbs of silver will be covered with horns and bushes. all the hills that used to be plowed with hoes. But you wont go there because you are afraid of thorns  and bushes. Cattle will be turned loose on those hills and sheep will run there.

I read the last verse a couple of times, I was reminded that our fears and lack of faith will be the reason we miss out on the things that God released for you.

The word says “the land that once had vines worth 25 lbs of silver will be covered with thorns and bushes”  because you were afraid you didn’t go and do the work by removing those thorns and bushes you missed out. 

you missed out not only on the land, but in that place cattle and sheep will be loose. 

Fear of trials stop us and then we miss the blessing from God. You didn’t go and test your faith in God, because it was dark, because you didn’t see a way out, because you thought it was a dead end, because you were scared you would fail. The blessing still hit the land, you just wasn’t in position.

Fear of invaders will stop you from going in the places you will need to go, to tend to the things that you will need to tend to in order to have the harvest that you would like to see. The thing we don’t want to talk about, is when the blessing hit and you aren’t kin position, someone else will test their faith in God and stumble upon the land which the courage to fight the invaders and they will live will, because they were willing to trust God.

 

If you are tired of being afraid of thorns and bushes in your life and you want God to show you a miraculous sign, open your heart and welcome Him in. Turn your bible, download a free bible app or google Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Start building your relationship by reading today’s chapter let God show you how to cut down those thorns. Find new ways to let him show you signs. Get yourself into a sound doctrine bible based church and a christian family to fellow ship with.

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 21

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are doing all things for your eternity. At times we have to make that choice. Will this benefit my eternity, will doing that allow me in the kingdom of God.

There will be people who will come along and try to distract you and there will be things that you just need to walk away from.

If you did all you could for the circumstance and it’s making you angry and hateful toward another.

Just simply walk away, most likely your time is up and your next is sitting there waiting on you. What is more important than your eternity?

Let me introduce myself, my

name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve is as the founder of From Sinner to Saint Blog, and Prayer wall (if you would like to be on the prayer wall email fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com). I also serve as the Founder of Journey in Praise Ministries and I serve as one of the leaders of the Walk It Out Ministries. (For more info go to About Me section)

Lets get in to the word of God!

Matthew Chapter 21

Jesus enters Jerusalem

Verse 1-11

The word says as approaching Jerusalem, they came to bethphage. It was on the Mount of Olives Jesus sent two disciples ahead he said to them;

Go to the Village ahead of you, as you get there you will find a donkey tied up.

Her cold will be with her and tie them and bring them to me if anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them. The owner will send them right away.

The word says this happened so that the word spoken through the prophet would come true it says.

Say to the city of Zion, see, you can come see you he is gentle and riding on a donkey. He is riding on a donkey’s Colt (Zechariah 9:9)

The word says the disciples went and did what Jesus told them to do. They brought the donkey and the colt.

They Place their coats on them then Jesus sat on the coats the word says a very large crowd spread their coats on the road. Others cut branches from the trees and spread them out on the road.

Some of the people went ahead of him and some of the people followed him. They all shouted,

” Hosanna to the son of David!

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. (Psalms 118:26) hosanna in the highest heaven!

The word says when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up. The people asked “who is this?”

The crowds answered “this is Jesus he is a prophet from Nazareth in Galilee”

Jesus came on the earth confirming the words of the prophets and all things he did.

When we think about speaking over our lives, we should think about how Jesus walked in past that the father gave to the prophet.

So when you speak over your life your children’s your spouse’s life Son and Holy Spirit will confirm your words.

Jesus clears the temple

Verse 12 – 17

The word says Jesus enter the temple area he started chasing out the people who were in the temple selling and buying things. He turned over their tables the word also says he turned over benches of those who are selling doves

Jesus said to them

It is written that the Lord said my house will be called a house where people can pray Isaiah 56:7 but you are making it a den for robbers Jeremiah 7:11

The word says that the Blind and the disabled went to Jesus at the temple. There he healed them. Jesus at the temple. They’re he heals him. The chief fries and the teachers of the law so the wonderful things he did. They also saw the children and the Temple area shouting Hosanna to the son of David but when they saw all that was going on the word says they became angry.

They asked Jesus; “Do you hear what these children are saying?”

Jesus replied

Yes, haven’t you ever read about it in Scripture? It says you have made sure that children and infants Praise You Psalms 8:2

The word says then Jesus left the people and went out of the city to Bethany he spent the night there.

The temple / Church is not the marketplace. There is a time and place for everything. The place where we stand and vulnerability for guidance and prayer and then here we are having people try to get over to make a sale haggling the church.

Notice how the chief priests and the teachers weren’t feeling praise for the healing but they were okay with turning the temple into a Marketplace.

And because they couldn’t say anything about the Turning of benches, and tables they decided to say something about the children and evening that Jesus was like nope, not happening did you read the scripture where it says children and infants Praise You word confirmed.

The Fig Tree dries up

Verse 18 – 22

The Lord says early in the morning Jesus  was headed back to Jerusalem. He was hungry, he saw a fig tree by the road. He went up to it to get a piece of fruit but found nothing except leaves

Jesus said;

May you never bare fruit again

The word says right away the tree dried up.

when the disciples saw the tree dry up they were amazed they asked Jesus

how did the Fig Tree dry up so quickly?

Jesus replied;

What I’m about to tell you is true. you must have faith and not doubt. Then you can do what was done to the fig tree. And you can say to this mountain, go and throw yourself into the sea. It will be done. If you believe, you will receive what you ask for when you pray

This chapter, I mentioned that the Lord will confirm the words of his servant. Well it’s our faith that brings us to that level our faith that carries us to the next level the face that what we declare in prayer we will walk in or are descendants will walk in it without faith our words will not be confirmed.

The authority of Jesus is questioned

Verse 23 – 27

The word says Jesus entered the temple Courtyard while he was teaching the chief priests in Elders came to him.

They asked Jesus by what Authority are you doing these things? Who gave you this Authority?

Jesus replied

I will also ask you one question. If you answer me I will tell you by what Authority I am doing these things. Where did John the baptism come from? was it from heaven? Or did it come from Men?

the scripture says they talk to each other about it they answered finally.

” if we say heaven he will ask then why didn’t you believe him? But if we say for men? we are afraid of the people Everyone believe said John was a prophet.”

so they answered Jesus we don’t know

Jesus said, then I won’t tell you by what Authority I am doing these things either.

This verse speaks volumes we are so quick to be ready to question others but are we willing to speak truth when we answer them.

what was it for the chief priests to say John’s baptism Came From Heaven they didn’t want to be proven wrong?

To say men we would upset the people who believe John to be a prophet. imagine the teacher of Law and chief priests being led by people and not God I don’t know about that.

The story of the two sons

verse 28-32

What do you think about this/ A man had two sons, he went to the first one and said,

‘Son go and work today in the vineyard.’

‘I will not’ the son answered, but later he changed his mind and went.

Then the father went to the second son and asked the same thing.

The son answered, ‘I will, Sir.’ But he did not go.

which of the two son’s did what the father wanted?

“The first” The disciples answered. Jesus said to them.

What I’m about to tell you is true, Tax collectors and prostitutes will enter the kingdom of God ahead of you. John came to show you the right way to live and you did not believe him, but the Tax collector and prostitutes did. you saw this. But even then you did not turn away from your sins and believe him.

Are you going to walk in what’s right? The first son may have said no, I’m not going to work in your vineyard but after a while he got up and went to work. Just like the Tax collectors and prostitutes. While their in their sin they are enjoying themselves but in their mind the are believing John and it is doing something in their spirit.

That’s what happens with us, the Lord keeps working on us at first we will be all in our free will enjoying the feeling of doing what we want right or wrong but then we will hear a word from the Lord and that’s when it will start stirring in our spirit. which moves us to say yes. Remember Moses he said “Lord, I can’t do that I have issues with my speech”  yet Moses still went to Egypt. 

The second son was like many, Oh yes sir, I’ll do what you ask of me, but doesn’t follow through. We have believers that will say, yes Lord! I’ll give up everything. These are the people that say, ‘not that Lord.’  ‘I’m not ready to do that either’

The story of the renters

Verse 33-46

Jesus said;

Listen to another story.

A man who owned some land planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it. He dug a pit for a wine-press in it. He also built  a looking tower. He rented the vineyard out  to some farmers. Then he went away on a Journey.

When harvest time approached, he sent his servants to collect his share of the fruit. But the renters grabbed his servants, they beat one of them, killed another. They through stones at the third to kill him.

Then the man sent other servants to the renters. He sent more than he did the first time. The renters treated them the same way.

Last of all he sent his son. ‘They will respect my son.’ he said.

But the renters saw his son coming. They said to each other. ‘This is the one who will receive all the owners property someday. Come, lets kill him. Then everything will be ours.’

So they took him and through him out of the vineyard, then they killed him.

“When the owner of the vineyard comes back, what will he do to those renters?

“He will destroy those evil people” they replied “Then he will rent the vineyard to other renters. They will give him his share of the crop at the harvest time”

Jesus said to them

Haven’t you ever read what the scriptures say “The stone the builders didn’t accept. has become the most important stone of all.

The Lord has done it.

It is wonderful in our eyes (psalm 118:22,23)

so here is what I tell you. The kingdom of God will be taken away from you. It will be given to people who will produce it’s fruit.

Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces. But the stone will crush anyone it falls on.

The chief priests and the pharisees heard Jesus’s stories. They knew he was talking about them. So they looked for a way to arrest him. But they were afraid of the crowd. The people believed  that Jesus was a prophet.

It took  me some time on this scripture. Not everyone will accept you and walk that your on. 

In the mist there will be people who will try to take what God has placed for you. And they will try to destroy who you are, they will try to damage your name. You will be the stone, the builders didn’t accept.

The kingdom of God will be taken away from them and given to those who produce fruit.

Our Father (landowner) will remove the renters (evil people) from your life and so that we can produce fruit and give the lord  our praise. 

Be Blessed

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, some of the ways that I serve new-journey-in-praise-flyeris as the founder of From Sinner to Saint Blog and prayer wall (If you have a request you can send an email to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com) I also serve as the founder of Journey in Praise Ministry http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com . Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.

Matthew Chapter 9

Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man

Verse 1 – 8

The word says that Jesus went into his own tow, and there the men brought a man to him paralyzed. Jesus saw their faith, and told the man that his sins were forgiven the word says Take heart

The teachers of the law saw this and said to themselves “this man is blaspheming.” Because Jesus knows their thoughts, he asked them why they thought so evil. He asked them if it was easier your sins are forgiven, than get up and walk? Jesus says this so we would know that the son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins.

Jesus tells the paralyzed man to get up and take his mat and go home. The word says the man got up and went home. The people praised God, who had given men this authority.

In this teaching Jesus shows us that we have the power to command, we have the authority to forgive sin. We walk around with lack of self-worth with so much power inside of us. The paralyzed man is us stuck in our circumstances we can’t seem to me because we don’t think we have the power to move out of it.

God has given us authority on this earth, to go forward and prosper, but he has also given us the gift of free will, to walk or sit. The question is what are you going to do with your power?

 

Verse 9 – 13

Jesus Eats with Sinners at Matthews House

The word says when Jesus left from the paralyzed man he saw a man name Matthew who was sitting in the tax collector’s booth. Jesus told the man to follow him, and Matthew got up and followed him.

As Jesus was having dinner at Matthews house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples.

The word says when the Pharisees seen this they asked his disciples, why Jesus was eating with the tax collectors and the sinners?

It’s not the healthy that need a doctor, but the sick.

But go learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.

For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

This word blew my mind, let’s talk about the real. Yes, we seek fellowship and to be around like-minded individuals. Let me say this on this blog first, I am not here for the righteous but for the sinner. This scripture made me realize why the Lord named the blog from sinner to saint, it’s here for the those that are looking for God, to help those that know him but have not yet established a relationship, and for those that just want to be filled by him.

Praise God for placing us here to help each other. We cannot deny the sinner we are not better than them, we are to have mercy. I Jesus came and walked the way we should be walking then we were meant to not expect sacrifice, but desire mercy, may God have mercy on them and me.

 

 

Verse 14 – 17

Religious Leaders Ask Jesus about Fasting

The word says that John’s disciples asked Jesus why he and the Pharisees fast but Jesus and his disciples doesn’t? Jesus answered by saying how can the guest of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them; then they will fast.

Jesus says no one will sew an unshrunk patch on old clothes because the patch will pull away from the garment making the tear worse. Nor will you pour new wine in old wineskins, if they do the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskin will be ruined, so they pour new wine in a new wineskin and both are preserved.

 

This word is real Jesus was there to do a new thing. When he speaks about the patch he is talking about the old religious ways. If he did what they did it would be worst. Jesus and his disciples were spending as much time together teaching and learning with the many that followed. They would not mourn, there would be a time for them to fast.

When we fast, we are releasing the old a purge we are coming from the fast new, changed. When doing a new thing you can’t mix it with the old, when expecting a new blessing God isn’t going to pour it out on your old ways.

 

 

Verse 18 – 26

Jesus Heals a Bleeding Woman and Restores a Girl to Life

 

The word when Jesus was talking about fasting a ruler knelt before him and told him that his daughter had died, he told Jesus to come put his hand on her and she will live. (command)  Jesus got up and went with him.

The word says just then a woman who had been suffering with bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, she said to herself “ If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”

Jesus turned and saw her and told her to “take heart your faith has healed you” and the woman was healed from that moment.

The word goes on to tell us when Jesus entered the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd, he told them to go away. Jesus told them that the girl was not dead, but asleep. But they laughed at him. After the crowd was gone Jesus went to the girl touched her hand and she got up. The news spreads through the region.

The king with authority new that Jesus would bring his daughter back, the woman with blood knew that all she needed was to touch him. But Jesus said take heart, relax your worry. Your faith has healed you.

Our authority is in our faith, to know that God is real and will bring us from whatever we are coming from, going through, and moving toward. Are you walking in the power of your authority? Are you moving by faith? Are you ready to take heart?

 

Verse 27- 34

Jesus Heals the Blind and Mute

The word says Jesus went on from there, and two blind men followed him calling out have mercy son of David! When Jesus went indoors the blind men came to him and Jesus asked them Did they believe that he is able to do what they ask of him? they replied yes, Lord.

Jesus touched their eyes and said

According to your faith, it will be done to you?

And their sight was restored, Jesus warned them sternly make sure no one knows about this. But they went out and spread the news to the region.

The word says while the men were going out a man who was demon possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. When the demon was driven out the man was able to speak. The crowd was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” The word says but the Pharisees said “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.

 

Our faith is the key, we serve a God of impossible so wouldn’t what he does be never before seen. My favorite saying is, if you want to see God go and do the impossible, that will be a faith walk, a walk on water. When folks don’t understand what God is doing they will typically say it is the devil it’s demonic. Remember they are not supposed to understand what God is doing through you so don’t expect them to.

Verse 35 – 38

Jesus Urges the Disciples to pray for workers

The verse starts by telling us that Jesus went through all the villages and towns techin in the synagogues, preaching the word of God and healing sickness and discomfort. When he saw the people he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Jesus said to his disciples the harvest is plenty but the workers are few. Jesus tells his disciples to ask the Lord for a harvest so we can send out workers into his harvest field.

This scripture is very important. One day the Lord showed me that we are the Trees of knowledge and we are Eden. When we are growing in the Lord being nurtured in to goodness, we have bountiful harvests. Everything that comes from us is good. Jesus had compassion for the people because they didn’t know how beautiful they could be. We don’t know how beautiful we can be. When we lack faith in God we are walking around worried about so many unimportant things. Sometimes it can be a problem only God can solve, those are the times to just wait in his presence.

Are you ready to be a worker are you ready to plant a seed for the harvest? Did you know that that can just be praying that someone gets to walk the path of righteousness? However God moves you are you ready to walk in faith, are you ready to be that tree of Knowledge that God tells you, you are? Here is your free will, you know of what is good and you know of what is evil, now you decide. Amen

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our 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.

Matthew Chapter 7

Blessing everyone,

 

As we are moving forward I pray that you all are seeking God, accepting others, and walking with the holy spirit.

To the followers of from Sinner to saint Blog welcome thanks for joining me in bible study, you all are so very much appreciated.

Matthew Chapter 7

Jesus Teaches about Criticizing others

Verse 1- 6

Jesus teaches us, do not judge or we will be judged with the same measure of judgement that you used to judge. The Lord says we can’t look at the little things about others and criticize them and we have bigger things blocking our vision.

The Lord shows us that we can’t judge walking around crittizeing others when we are showing someone that something is not right, we should be standing in position as a helper not as a demolition. It is important that we are uplifting each other toward God.

 

Verse 7 -12

Jesus Teaches about Asking, Seeking, knocking

Jesus tells us ask and it will be given to us, seek and we will find, knock and the door will be open to you. Everyone who does these things shall receive.

Jesus askes who is Gods son and ask for bread and get stone. Our ask for a fish and be given a snake? Jesus tells us that the Father in heaven gives good gifts to those who ask him. The Lord says in everything so unto others what you would have them do to you. This is said by the Law and the Prophets.

It’s important to our spirit that we do right by the people that come into our lives. We should allow ourselves to not walk around wishing misery on each other. We should be able to see that we all are trying to move forward in life. We all are out for the greater good even though the good to many are different it’s important to know that we all desire it which means that there is no need to want someone else to fail or need.

If we can help in our time, finances if God has already sent you an overflow be ready to spread that over flow so that others may be able to have a little in their cup. Remember a cup that overflows end up wasting what if you don’t pour it into another glass.

 

Verse 13 &14

Jesus Teaches about the Way to Heaven

Jesus teaches us that if we want to head into destruction we would go the road that has many people and large options but if we want to get in to heaven there’s only one way and few take that road.

The walk as a believer is a walk of discipline and relationship. It takes lots of patience to stand and walk righteously a relationship with God puts us in a place that we are seeking him and when we stand in that place challenges will come and test your faith to allow you to build another level of faith in God. Many will try to fit through that gate but it takes humbleness to be able to fit and continue walking. Knowing God provides all and we when we are tempted still keep moving in what God has instructed. The word says

“don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

When we are weak in faith as soon as a stress factor comes with tomorrows worry we seem to try to fall off the narrow road and try to find our own path.

Verse 15-20

Jesus Teaches about Fruit in People’s Lives

Jesus warns us to watch out for false prophets, they come like wolves in sheep clothing. Pay attention to their fruit. Every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit.

Especially in this day you can scroll Facebook and find many people with the title Prophet before their names. Take the time to sit and speak with God before you run and do what they are telling you that “God said” look around them and see what God is moving in their life. Remember everything that comes from God is good.

Verse 21-29

Jesus Teaches about Those Who Build Houses on Rock and Sand.

Jesus says you can cry out Lord, Lord and still not get into heaven. Only those who do the will of the Father in heaven will get there.
“They may say didn’t I prophesy in your name and drive out demons and perform miracles in your name. and I will say to them get away from me you evil doers.”

Jesus tells us that if we listen to his words and put them in practice it is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The storm came and the house did not move. But the ones who hears the words and doesn’t put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The storm can and the house fell with a great crash.

The word says when Jesus was done teaching the crowd was amazed because he spoke with authority and not a teacher.

We must remember to apply the word of God to our lives this is important. We stand on the word of God that is solid ground if you don’t apply a practice of faith and righteous living you cannot think that you will stand strong in the tough times.

You cannot turn your back on God when the sun is up and then when the rain starts to get heavy you scream Lord, Lord. We cannot be hypocrites; our walk should place us in the position to want the Heavenly Father to have a smile on his face because he knows that we are strong in faith because we practice I every day. He has been training us for a time like this. What are you going to do in the storm be the light on the night stand or be the light under the night stand.

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 6

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going forth with full power, not half power but full power. When we walk in faith, we are walking with God, we are allowing God to led us in to everyplace that he knows that we will soar in. So today where ever God is leading you please go forth in the full power that God has gifted you in.

Matthew Chapter 6

Jesus Teaches about giving to the needy

Verse 1- 4

Jesus Teaches us to be careful not to display our righteous acts, for everyone to see. The word says If you do, you will have no reward from your father in heaven. The Lord says be sure not to announce your charitable deeds with trumpets like the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. The Lord says when you give to the needy, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving maybe in secret. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

 

Praise God, this verse is very important especially in this day. I have scrolled on Facebook and seen videos of people feeding the homeless and just had to press record.  When we have been moved in our heart to do something for someone else and we have the means to do that thing. The Lord says that it is important that we go forth in secret if you press play for a praise from others then you have been rewarded already.

You can’t serve two gods so either you go forth and get the praise from man, or you go forth and allow the lord to open the storehouse and pour out your reward. I don’t know about you but if I am obeying the Lord by helping someone who needs me then I don’t want the praise of man, because the praise isn’t for us it’s for God who gave us the means to provide what was needed.

Verse 5 – 15

Jesus Teaches about Prayer

Jesus has spoken to us about praying, we are told not to go and pray standing out in other places, but to go to a room, close the door, and pray to your father, who is unseen. Then your father sees what you have done in secret, he will reward you. Jesus says and when you pray do not keep babbling like pagans, because they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them for your father knows what you need before you ask him. Jesus says this is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts,

Has we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

Jesus says If you forgive men who sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive your sins.

 

The word tells us that when we pray go to a quiet place so that you can hear the Lord. When we are in church and we are in the street we pray in fellowship but we should be spending personal time with God.

Jesus shows how to begin our prayers. When we pray we are saying, Our father in heaven Holy is your name. we are asking God to lead us by his will on this earth as he has placed in heaven. God places us high, we place ourselves low. Anything that we would like to have God wants us to have better. we cannot even imagine the things that we could have. I am not only talking about material, if you are going to God for material things then you are going for the things that you idealize. I’m talking about better spiritually because you can have all the material things that you desire and still feel empty. You want peace of mind in a beautiful place, you want to be filled with the glory of God and your overflow will surround you. We want God to give us our instruction for the day, our daily lessons. We want the father to forgive us for the things that we owe him. Forgive us for not spending time with him, forgive us for not following his law, forgive us for not listening to his instructions. when we don’t deposit in to the storehouse how can we expect to have a bountiful overflow when the lord opens the storehouse (If you want to know more about the storehouse, go to Deuteronomy chapter 28). We make a covenant to forgive those who take away from us, forgive those that owe us. We ask God to not lead into temptation, but keep us from evil.

Anything that you want from the Father he already knows, he knows all things, so while we have finished the begin of the prayer, we are to be ready to praise him for already fixing it. Our faith is knowing that everything that comes our way has already been fixed and prepped better.

we can’t go around thinking we are too good to forgive someone who has wronged us, and expect God to forgive us. We should be ready to say if you did this to me or that to me, then you must have been fighting a spiritual battle that you lost. I am not mad at you, I will offer pray for your strength the next time your spirit goes to war.

 

Verse 16 – 18

Jesus teaches about fasting

Jesus tells us that when we fast, don’t walk around looking somber to show people that you are fasting. Jesus says when you are fasting put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it is not obvious to men that you are fasting, but to the Father, and he sees what you have done and he will reward you.

We should not be walking around looking distressed and hungry when we are fasting. When we are fasting, we are in God’s presence and we should not be worried about who knows that we are fasting. Your fast isn’t about others it is about you and God. Now if you are led to have a group fast, you’re not going to be walking around like it is the worst thing you ever done, and you can’t wait to be finished. You should be walking with the glory of God on you.

 

Verse 19-24

Jesus teaches about money

Jesus teaches not to horde the treasures that is of this earth, but to horde the treasures of heaven. Because where your treasures are, your heart will be

 

 No need to rush out to get new things to put on display, do not need to break our back to make money to have the best of everything for ourselves. when we are more worried about making money for ourselves we are busy in selfishness. We are not busy for the spiritual purposes, matter of fact we are so busy on our hustle for more money, more things, that we let days, weeks, months go by before we spent time with God. We lose focus on what the true treasure is, like I said earlier you can have all the material things and the best of them but if you  aren’t linked to God your spirit is still going to feel empty, you’re in debt with God.

 

Verse 25 – 33

Jesus Teaches about Worry

Jesus tells us not to worry about food and clothes, Jesus askes us; isn’t your life and your body more important than food and clothes? Jesus reminds us to look at the birds, they do not sow, reap, or store, and doesn’t the Father provide for them, aren’t you more valuable to him than they are? Jesus asks; by worrying can you add an hour to your life?

Jesus says O’ you of little faith? Do not worry about what to eat or what to drink or what you’re going to wear. Your father knows that you need them, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble.

Amen I cannot say it enough when we worry about things of this earth, we eliminate faith. Our worry, especially to a believe says that God isn’t Sovereign. I’m not saying it’s easy, what I am saying is keep moving in God’s presence so that you may be led to the things of God, and anything that is of God is good.

Be Blessed

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 our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going through this day with the grace of God. It is amazing all the things that God does on an everyday basis. If we take the time to look around at the way that God shifts then you will catch a living testimony in the process.

Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk it Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.

Matthew Chapter 5

Verse 1 – 12

The scripture says when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountain and sat down. His disciples came to him and he began to teach them. The Lord said

Blessed are the poor in spirit,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,

For they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,

For they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

For they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,

For they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure heart,

For they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,

For they will be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,

For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

The Lord continues saying blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

 

When we go forth we know that many things and people will come at us the wrong way, testing us to see if our joy will shake, if our faith will crumble it is in the words of Jesus Christ, what should be remembered at that time. Your spirit has been knocked around Jesus says in verse 3 you have the kingdom of heaven. You are rich, your spirit is rich there is no need to feel like you are less than, you have the key to the kingdom. You are suffering a loss, you will be comforted God will do it for you. You will just need to go to him for all things. Praise God!

 

Verse 13-16

Jesus teaches about salt and light

The Lord tells us that we are what makes the earth better, if we lose our better if we lose our zeal for God then we aren’t going to be able to produce good. We will just be a waste.

The Lord tells us that we are the light of the world. We were not meant to be hidden and stand down. We were meant to be placed high so that everyone can be able to see what God has revealed through us. We are to bring Gods light to dark places.

In this day we look at the people on the street speaking Gods word like they are crazy and there are many of you that have been called to be evangelist and to go and shine Gods light in dark places but you don’t want others to call you crazy because you are speaking God’s word. I hear the Lord saying remember Jeremiah. Stand on my word!

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

 

Verse 17-20

Jesus teaches about Law

Jesus reminds us that he didn’t come to remove the Law he came to fulfill  Gods words through the prophet. Jesus says until the heaven and earth disappears no word from the law will disappear until everything is accomplished. If you think that you can break any commandment and teach someone else how to break any commandments you will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus says unless your righteousness surpasses a Pharisees and the teachers of law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven

Amen we haven’t seen the heaven and earth disappear so there is no reason that we should be editing the commandments to fit our lifestyle. What I am noticing is that parents no longer teach their children to follow the ten commandments. If we start training our children on Gods law there they will find him and peace of mind.

We want our children to be kingdom kids, and even though we are walking toward righteousness we must get our households in order. Start to make affirmation with the commandments

I am one who does not put another god before the true and living God.

 

I am one who does not make Idols

Begin to speak God’s law over your life and the lives of the people around you.

Verse 21- 26

Jesus teaches about anger

Jesus teaches us that yes, we were told not to kill or we will be judged. Jesus says but if you anger with you brother you will be Judged as well. The Lord says you can’t come to the alter with anger against someone else. Reconcile and then bring your gift to the alter. The Lord says settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court, you will be handed over and won’t get out until you have paid the last penny.

 

We must fix the situation because we really don’t need an ugly seed of anger growing with our mustard seed that’s like weeds in the garden. The Lord reminds us that we must pay our debt.

 

Verse 27 – 30

Jesus teaches about lust

The Lord teaches us that if anyone who is married look at another person lustfully has already committed adultery in their heart. The lord tells us that if we want to blame a body part for our sin, then get rid of the body part. You should rather lose that body part then to go to hell.

We should not allow even ourselves to keep us from obeying Gods Law

Verse 31 – 32

The Lord tells us that unless our mate committed marital unfaithfulness if you move on to another person it will be still adultery.

We should be able to work things out we should be able to figure each other out when we are married. Currently, we do not take the time to get to know each other and spend time knowing each other’s people. These are things that we are supposed to do before we make the comitment of marriage. Some just want the big wedding and so marriage has stopped being taken so serious. Family is anointed by God and somewhere in the shift of generations we have moved from traditional and started editing the order of things. We want everything quickly not realizing that slow cooked things tend to linger longer.

Verse 33-37

Jesus teaches about vows

The Lord teaches us not to break our oath, to keep the oaths that we have made with the Lord. The Lord tells us not to swear on heaven because it is Gods throne and do not swear on the earth because it is Gods footstool or by Jerusalem because it is the city of the great king. Let your yes be yes and your no be no.

We must remember to stand on our word if you say you are going to do something follow through. If you tell God that you are going to do something follow through. We break promises to God all the time.“ Lord, if you get me out of this, I will make sure I do that” And the Lord comes through on his behalf and he sitting there waiting earth years for you to move.

Verse 38-42

Jesus teaches about retaliation

The Lord teaches yes you heard and eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. But do not withhold and evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek turn the other cheek. If someone wants to take your shirt give them your jacket as well. If someone forces you to go a mile, you go two miles. The Lord says give to the one who wants to borrow from you.

I believe a lot of people do not believe in this part of the scripture. What I will ask you is Do you have faith? Everything that was said in verses 1- 12 is the reason that you do not worry about what people do think or want. If someone hits your cheek do you not believe that Gods reaction is more solid then yours. Your reaction will have you walking away feeling convicted. If someone asks you to go beyond the earth, do you believe that the Lord will tenfold your sacrifice. Our faith should surpass our reactions.

Verse 43-48

Jesus says it was once told to love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But you should love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. That you may be sons of your father in heaven. Jesus asks if you love those who love you what reward will you get? Be perfect as your heavenly father is perfect

If we walked around helping just those who help us what satisfaction will you get. We are here to shine bright so what do you do shut the light off for those that you don’t know who are trying to climb over a hurdle.

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 our 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.
