Someone prepared the way for you, Now you prepare the way for someone else.

Blessings everyone,

This is a good one, we forget that when we walk this Earth we walk a path that someone has already walked and that someone else will follow. we tend to moan and complain about what we maybe going through instead of chopping down trees for the way to be cleared for those that follow . This lesson in the third chapter of Luke puts the word of God in the lesson. It’s easy to say something but when you put Gods word in it, it becomes truth and everlasting.

Luke Chapter 3

Chapter 3 starts by telling us that in the thirteenth year of Tiberius Caesar, God spoke to John in the wilderness.(3:2) John went out into the country preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sin. The action of John was confirmation to the word of Isaiah.

There’s always an order, Isaiah came first letting the people know that John had come to prepare the way for the Lord.

In these verses John begins to teach the people how to live by the Law of loving thy Neighbor. (How to show Gods glory) (3:8-19) These verses tell us to be willing to Share, feed and not be gluttons.

3:8 Reminds us that when we walk in repentance we begin to produce fruit, we begin the process of multiplication.

3:16 John tells the people that the one who will come after him will be more powerful than he is . John goes on to say that he is not worthy to even untie the straps of his sandals.

Lets speak on the fruitfulness, should be able to pour into those that follow us. We should be able to prepare the way for them to get to the point of where we are and beyond. Because we cleared the way they would and should be in a position of understanding, as you once were when you were following someone.

Chapter 3 goes on to teach us that Johns Ministry took him to the prison. the lesson has taught us that John was sent to prison because he was no willing to compromise Gods word. King Herod the leader of the people was living in sin, John was walking in his purpose he was to prepare the way and that was to admonish and open the minds of the people. John rebukes the actions of the leader of the people that he was trying to strongly encourage.

Chapter three ends with the baptism and genealogy of Jesus. The word tells us that as Jesus was praying the Holy Spirit descended on him.

This is why a prayer life is so important to our walk, when we pray it strengthens the spirit of God in us. In prayer we go to God for instructions and lessons, the Holy Spirit interprets Gods word to us. Jesus began his ministry after He was baptized, after the Holy Spirit descended on Him. we can not go forth and produce fruit without the Holy Spirit of God with us.

We learn the family line in which Jesus came from taking us all the way to Adam.All that came before Jesus had been servants with a relationship with God. Let this word remind us of Isaiah 59:21 The spirit of God will stay with us and the word of God will be on the lips of our children and our children’s, children. This is those before you and those after you in the name of Jesus.

To God be the Glory!!!!

If you are ready to give your life over to God and ready to let Jesus come in to teach you, Turn your bible to Roman 10:9

Lord God Thank you for going to the cross with me in your heart and in your mind thank you Lord for stepping down from your throne and walking the path before me I believe in my heart and I say with my mouth that you are Lord and have died for my sins. Thank you Lord for paying the ransom for me that day on Calvary. I believe that on the third day you got up with power and defeated death just for my Salvation. Lord thank you for cleaning me with hyssop so that I can go to the father with a renewed spirit in Jesus name Amen!

Sinning Ain’t Winning Part II (Psalm 51)

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are working on and walking in righteousness! It may at times be trying for us, but it is important that at trying times we walk in 1 John 3:7 and not let others lead us astray. we must keep in mind that we need to walk right as Jesus walked right. we are to focus on looking like God, being his image.

let’s talk about Psalms 51. Yesterday the Holy spirit led us to the scripture of cleansing. In 2019 I’m sure you have heard a lot of people talk about Deliverance, when we go and ask God to Deliver us from things that are attaching itself to us, the first step is to ask God to cleanse us.

We say; Lord have Mercy on me~ have compassion for me, your love is right on time. and then we ask God to take away our transgressions. Knowing that God wants us to spend sometime with Him so that He can teach us and speak in to and through us, He waits for us to come to Him and say Father I keep messing this thing up, nothing seems to go right.

I go left and the door is closed I go right and something is in front of my path, Lord I don’t have the strength alone to move it out of my way. The Lord begins to show us the things that we have allowed to clutter our path from Him. These are the things that we begin to put before Him, making them our idol.

Once we begin to see, the things we have done, we ask God to wash us of our immoral behavior; our wickedness. we ask to be cleansed because we now know better, so now we ask for the help to do better because we know our transgressions are always before us.

the Psalm reminds us that we sin only against God, and God can only judge us. we acknowledge that we are born with a sinful nature from the time that we were conceived; yet God desires us to be faithful from the womb. (mother’s pray with your babies in gestation)

We have faith that when the Lord cleanses us with hyssop we will be clean. When the Lord washes us we will be white as snow. e believe that the Lord will create in us a pure heart and a steadfast spirit. We ask the Lord not to take us from His presence or take the Holy spirit from us.

Now after the Lord has cleansed us and we have been washed from our sins and changed into white garments Zechariah 3:5 then comes our righteous walk.

Psalm 51:13 Tells us that once we are cleansed, we begin to walk as teachers to sinners. God will open our lips and we will sing his praise.

We learn from this study that once you are free and cleaned of your transgressions, you start to win. You begin to teach others and help them come to the Lord for a cleansing of their sin. It’s important for us to pass on what we have learned Jesus told the disciples to go out and do this Matthew 28:19.

If you are ready to stand in position in your purpose Pray with me!

Heavenly Father

Thank you for your Love and Grace, Lord God wash me of my sins, purify me God, create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit with in me. Lord I declare with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I believe in my heart and spirit that He died for my sins and on the third day rose in power. Father God Thank you for Salvation In Jesus name Amen

Welcome into the family of God, May God bless your Journey

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 27

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in the understanding of your purpose and faith of the will of God for your life.

I also serve on the encouragement team in Walk it out Ministry. Alright let’s get into the word.

Isaiah Chapter 27

Deliverance of Israel

The word starts out telling us the Lord will punish with his powerful sword. He will slay the Leviathan the monster of the sea. (The Leviathan description can be found in Job 41:13, it says the scales are so close it cannot be pierced through)

The word speaks of a fruitful vineyard where the Lord continually water it, and guard it day and night, so that no one may harm it.

The word continues to say that the Lord will be the refuge; as long as peace is made.

 

Isaiah goes on to say that the Lord says that the people of Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit. They will be forgiven

When Israel make all the alter stones (of the pagans) crushed to pieces. The word says the fortified city (The strengthened city) will be left desolate (deserted). Branches stripped and bare, the twigs dried that they will be used for fire. Isaiah says this is a people without understanding (lack knowledge) and so their maker has no compassion. This verse will continue by saying their creator will show them no favor.

I haven’t done this in a while, let me butt in. when we are not continually searching for answers, studying the word and trying to hear, and seek God, we become a people that lack understanding, when we lack understanding we lack knowledge. In Hosea 4:6 the word of God says my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge. I also reject you as my priest; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.  Confirmation.

The Chapter ends by saying that Israel will be gathered up one by one, a great trumpet will sound, those who were perishing and those who were exiled will come and worship the Lord, on the Holy mountain in Jerusalem.

Be reminded that the Lord Our God is here to water us and protect us, he is our defensive wall, as long as we turn away from the things that is not of Him, as long as we make peace with Him, then we will blossom.

 

Glory be to God, If you have no desire to perish (spiritually) or be exiled and you want to get build a relationship with Our savior Jesus Christ, turn your bible, google or download the youversion free 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, and you shall be saved. Find a bible-based church, place yourself among like-minded people and begin a healthy prayer life. Allow the Lord to come in refresh, renew and restore your spirit

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.

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.

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 19

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpgcropped-logo_2042734_web.jpglogo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

I pray that you all are moving forward in faith that nothing or no one can stop what God ordained you too do. I pray that in faith you know that the same people who look at you and doubt the God you serve will praise the God you serve as they see what he is doing and moving in your life.

Isaiah chapter 19

Verses `1- 17

This is the prophecy against Egypt. Yet again Egypt is falling to the hands of God. the word says that the Lord will dry the rivers and the plants will wither. The idols will tremble and the Egyptians will melt in fear.

The prophets Isaiah warns that the plans that they make will come to be nothing, they will go to their idols and mediums. The Egyptians will be handed over to a cruel king.

This reminds me that if we think our plans is how we are going to make it then we mistaken. some of us focus so much on what we want and how we are going to get it we take God out we stop consulting God. some people never have consulted God.

just like the Egyptians the Lord God will put a stop to those plans and He will gracefully break you, put you in a position where you have nothing and can only call on Him. 

Verse 18- 25

The prophecy says that five cities in Egypt will swear allegiance to the Lord Almighty. The word says their will be an alter to the Lord in the heart of Egypt and a monument to the Lord at it’s border.

The word says they will worship and make sacrifices to the Lord Almighty, they vows and keep them. They will go to the Lord with there pleas and he will hear them and heal them.

In that day Egypt, Assyria and Israel will be as one and the Lord God will Bless them saying Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.

As I was writing I heard the Lord say, be careful how you treat the ones that treat you wrong, because he forgives them and blesses them as well. A people that at one  time worshiped idols and believed that all that they had was by their own hands and work, would be broken just to see who God is and how powerful he is and then praise and worship Him and be blessed by Him.

Love thy neighbor as God Loves you, because God will love your neighbor as He loves you.

If you are going through a moment of feeling broken and you need God to move in a mighty way in your spirit and in your heart turn your bibles, google, or download the free youversion bible app go to Romans 10:9 Declare with you that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved.

Get yourself in a bible based church, find yourself some like minded people and begin building your relationship with God with a prayer life.

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 17

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that today you all are giving God the glory, recognizing Him as your rock and fortress.  We can not do anything without the strength and the spirit of God. we can’t do anything by ourselves

If you would like to learn more about how I serve the kingdom of God, check out the About Me section, I will no longer be putting my intro in the blogs. Let’s jump into the word of God!

Isaiah Chapter 17

This is the prophesy against Demascus. The Prophet Isaiah had to deliver the message that Damascus will no longer be a city, it will be a place of ruin and the cities east of the Jordan will only be a refuge for flocks to lie down in and not worry about being hunted or bothered.

The word says The Lord almighty declares that the royal power will disappear from Damascus like the glory disappeared from the Israelite’s. The glory of Jacob ( his prosperity, population) the fatness will become lean.

In this day people will look to God, they will no longer look to the idolatrous things that their hands created. In this day the land will be desolated because Judah had forgotten the God of their salvation.

The word says anything that is planted will not grow.

This prophet Isaiah says this is the fate of those that plunder Israel, and the lot of those who pillage ( violently rob) them.

Could you imagine delivering this message, the Lord was letting them no that there was no free pass. We serve a God who is Jealous, no one should be getting his praise, and Glory. 

The people of Damascus they were building their idolizing alters, robbing, beating and most likely killing God’s people. The Lord said I see it and now I will deal with it, you will have nothing and when you try to get something I’m taking that too.

We must give God the glory we don’t have the power to create without him, we can’t   breath life without him.

Listen if you want God to come in and shift your life in order turn your bible, download the youversion free bible app, or google Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord believe in your heart that God raised from the dead and you shall be saved.

Isaiah Chapter 15

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are in praise, no matter what you are going through. It’s so important that we praise God in the midst of all things concerning us. This is apart of our praying without ceasing, the building of our relationship with God, the structure of our foundation of faith.

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 15

Verse 1-9

In this chapter; the Prophesy against Moab, Isaiah delivers the hard message that Moab will be destroyed in a night. There will be devastation and mourning. The scripture says everyone’s heads is shaven and every beard is cut off. The people will put on sackcloth and wail in the streets.

The cities that Moab claimed will cry out, the people will flee while weeping. The waters is desolate (empty) the grass is withered. They will take the wealth that they stored up and their cry will be heard along the boarder of Moab.

this chapter ends with the announcement that their will be a lion among the fugitives of Moab among the remnant of the land.

 

Moab’s fall came due to Pride and arrogance. That tends to be the fall of most of us. In this day we are always working on the next pat on the back, on the next recognition, the promotion and there’s a thin line that if crossed we land in a sinful nature.

When we are in a sinful nature we place ourselves in the position to be disciplined by the Father. Being in a sinful nature we don’t look like him, He’s not trying to hear us. which places us in a mournful position. We are blinded to what can be, and lost in what we see.

The chapter ends with the Remnant, no matter what, God always has a remnant, He is always waiting to hear us say; ” forgive me Father for my sins known and unknown.” we just have to say them.

Be Blessed

If you are looking to begin your walk with Christ as a believer turn your bible, download the free bible app, or google Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord , and believe in your heart that the Father raised him from the dead, then you shall be saved. Now it’s time to get into bible study and fellowship. Begin your prayer life by just talking to him and listening, don’t forget some worship music that’s my favorite part

Isaiah Chapter 9

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your righteous walk. It can sometimes seem like you are going through a lot of things and it may even feel like they are hitting you all at once. when life hits like that, it is time to hide in the presence of the Lord.

I have come to learn that when it’s hitting me hard, the Lord is trying to get my attention. for the intercessors that means going into prayer more often. For the prophets and the teachers it may mean studying the word a bit more deeper.

Whatever the deeper is, the most valuable part is the unlock that comes from it. God is waiting to recover what was destroyed as he did Manasseh, but first we must go to him and be ready to change the things that he wants to change.

To the followers thank you for your support you are appreciated! If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog, thanks for stopping by. If you are led please follow so that you can get notifications of new blog posts. Let me introduce myself!

Isaiah Chapter 9

verse 1- 7

The Lord continues to tell Isaiah the gloom will not be on her (the land) who is distressed, as when it was first had taken over the land of Zebulon and the land of Naphtali heavily oppressed people lived by the sea, beyond the Jordan, in Galilee of the gentiles.

The people who were in darkness (oppressed, depressed, and did not hear or see God) have seen a great light those who stayed in the land of the shadow of death, would see the light upon them. the nations will multiply the joy will increase. they will celebrate over their harvest. The yoke of their burdens will be broken and the staff of their shoulders, the rod of their oppressors like when Gideon blew his trumpet, for all the blood that was shed God will set flame (rebuke) of fire.

To us a child will be born a son given and the government will be on his shoulders his name will be called wonderful, counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, prince of peace. From the increase of his government and peace there will be no end, on the throne of David there will be no end to order it and establish it with judgement and justice for that time on, even forever the zeal of the Lord of host will perform this.

 

In these verses Isaiah tells the people of what will come from the darkness to light. This word applied to our lives tell us that we will go through things in our lives and there will and can be darkness then comes Jesus, and we call him wonderful, counselor,mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of peace.

When there is no way, then comes God making away, because he loves us so much! showing us how wonderful he is, how mighty he is in our lives, and if we listen, how well he can counsel us. The peace that he will bring us, will bring everlasting life to us.

Verse 8-17

The verses says the Lord sent a word against Jacob and it all fell on Israel. The people of Ephraim and Samaria will know it. They will say the bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with stone. The sycamores are cut down, but we will replace them with cedars. Therefore the Lord raises Ephraim adversaries. from Rezin and spurs their enemies on. The Syrians before  and the Philistines after and they shall devour Israel with an open mouth. For all his anger is not turned away, but his hand is still stretched out.

Yet the people do not turn to Him who strikes them, nor do they seek the Lord of host.

Therefore the Lord will cut off head and tail from Israel palm branch and bulrush in one day. The elder and the honorable is the head. The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail. The leaders of the people cause them to fumble and the ones who are led by them will be destroyed.

The Lord will have no joy in their young man and no mercy on the fatherless and widows, because everyone is hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks foolishness and with all of this he’s angry but He still willing to help.

Even when we fail to give  God the glory he’s still right there waiting on us, and even if you didn’t know any better he’s still going to destroy the one who taught you.

This word is important for the impostors teaching and speaking, on their will, and according to their word’s. Leaving out Gods Glory in what he is doing and speaking on their own emotions and not the spirit of the Lord.

Taking on leadership positions, places us in a position that influences people. How we influence the people will be how God deals with us.

As believers in Christ we must realize that if we are not operating in the Holy Spirit and we are trying to move the body of Christ, it’s not going to work, God is going to destroy what is not good. When we move and  the Holy Spirit  is not in it, it becomes a self made, self recognized, self ruled thing.

We can not act out God’s orders or give him the glory if we are allowing ourselves to get in the way. This leads us to get in the way of the purpose of others. leading them in the wrong direction.

Verse 18-21

Isaiah tells the people that the Lord says wickedness burns like a fire, it consumes briars and thorns it even sets the forest thickets ablaze and mount up like rising smoke, by the wrath of God ( the word is the God of host “Armies) the land is burned up and the people shall be in fuel for the fire, no man shall snatch on the right hand and be hungry, he shall devour the left hand and not be satisfied. Every man will eat the flesh of his own arm.

Manasseh will devour Ephraim and Ephraim will devour Manasseh together they will be against Judah, and with all this His anger isn’t turned away and still his hand is stretched out

The verses starts by saying the day will come when wicked burns, is devoured  this being because of the Lord’s wrath. The people shall be the fuel for the burning land. 

What we do will determine what will happen. This word is for a people that did not give God the Glory, this word was for a people who were so busy Idolizing, and being told to idolize. Even in hardship they did not say Lord why are you punishing me. They said “I have to do it better, I have to get more” 

In a day where we have so many television Apostles, Prophets, Ministers we must keep in mind of this word, hold it like the warning it is.

The Lord wants the people to know that he will turn away, they will go through hardship, they will see and fuel His fire.

Verse 16; we are warned about leading in lies, and so we will be brought to repentance. 

As I was writing this blog I was led to go deeper into the study of Ephraim and Manasseh. while I was studying I learned that Manasseh was held captive by the Assyrian king and was tortured until he repented and was recovered, when he did he abandoned his Idolatry ways.

God destroys and then he builds. He will bring us through somethings, so  that we learn our lessons. He will turn from us and stretch out his hands, and then send help to build us up. 

Jesus was sent just for this reason

Israel had become an Idolatry people, doing evil in the eyes of God. They stop walking in faith and trying to be pleasing to God the had stopped believing God for all their needs. 

When we apply the word from these verses we know that no matter how we want to cover it up, when we bring things in the natural that is from our own will and we bring them to God and to His people we must be ready to see it destroyed.

It’s not your ministry, it’s Gods; it’s not your church, it’s God!

Blessings if you want to began a relationship with the Lord of host and you want to see what he can do in your life then turn your bible; download the free bible app; or google Romans 10:9 and If you say with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead than you will be Saved.

Get yourself into a bible based church, find a Holy Spirit filled group to fellowship with and let the Lord move and destroy all that is not of him and for your good.

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.

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
