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.

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 25

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in Glory. Grabbing your faith and Winning. Glory be to God!!! lets be ready for what the Lord has for us, let’s have our hands ready to grab. Amen

Matthew Chapter 25

The story of the ten briadsmaids

Verse 1-13

here is what the kingdom of heaven will be like at that time. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went out to meet the groom. Five of them were foolish, five were wise.

The foolish ones took their lamps, but didn’t take any olive oil with them. The wise ones took oil in a jar with their lamps. The groom didn’t come for along time so the bridesmaids all grew tired and fell asleep.

At midnight someone cried out, ‘Here’s the groom! come out to meet him!’

Then all the bridesmaids woke up and got their lamps ready. The foolish ones said to the wise ones ‘Give us some of your oil, our lamps are going out.’

‘No, they replied there may not be enough for all of us. Instead go to those who sell oil, buy some for yourselves.’

So they went to buy the oil. But while they were on their way, the groom arrived. The bridesmaids who were ready went in with him to the wedding dinner. Then the door was shut.

Later the other bridesmaids also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said ‘open the door for us!’

But he replied, ‘What I’m about to tell you is true, I don’t know you’.

So keep watch, you don’t know the day or the hour the groom will come.

 

Just like we learned in Chapter 24, Jesus says he doesn’t know when he’s coming, only the Father knows. When the Father, tells Jesus it’s time, Jesus will say Yes. Will you be ready? Doing things that the Father will be proud of.

What we do know is that the five foolish bridesmaids were not ready at all. Instead of packing and figuring out what the needed they talked about what they were going to say, probably fixed their make up and all kinds of things. The started running late grabbed their lamps and rushed out probably trying to beat the five wise bridesmaids to the perfect spot. and what happened they had to go look for oil to buy, and missed his arrival. 

For us it means that we should have been walking with our key to the kingdom.

The story of the three servants

Verse 14-30

Again here is what the kingdom of heaven will be like. A man was going on a journey. He sent for his servants and put them in charge of his property. He gave $10,000 to one. He gave $4,000 to another. And $2,000 to the third. The man gave each servant the amount of money he knew the servant could take of then he went on his journey.

The servant who had received the $10,000 went at once and put his money to work. He earned $10,000 more. The one with $4,000 earned $4,000 more. But the man who had received $2,000, and dug a hole in the ground he hid his masters money in it.

After a longtime the master to those  returned, he wanted to collect all the money they earned. The man who was given $10,000  brought the other $10,000. ‘Master’ he said ‘you trusted me with $10,000 . See, I have earned $10,000 more.

His master replied. ‘You have done well, good and faithful servant! you have been faithful with a few things . I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your masters happiness!’

The man with $4,000 also came. ‘Master’ he said ‘you trusted me with $4,000. See, I have earned $4,000 more.

His master replied ‘you have done well good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your masters happiness!’

Then the man who received $2,000 came. ‘Master’ he said. ‘I knew that you are a hard man. You harvest where you have not planted. You gather crops where you have not scattered seeds, so I was afraid. I went out and hid your $2,000 in the ground. See, here i what belongs to you.

His master replied, ‘You evil, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not planted? You knew that I gather crops where I have not scattered seeds? well then, you should have put my money in the bank when I returned I would have received it back with interest.

Then the master commanded the other servants ‘Take the $2,000 from him. Give it to the one who has $20,000. Everyone who has will , be given more. ‘He will have more than enough. and what about anyone who doesn’t have? Even what he has will be taken away from him. Throw that worthless servant outside. There in the darkness, people will sob and grind their teeth.

 

What are you doing with what the Lord has given to you?  We can not sit feeling worthless and hiding from our inheritance because our gift are hidden in the ground. 

we should be taking it and allowing God to trust us with more this is what we call living to our full potential

The Sheep and the Goat

Verse 31-46

The son of man will come in all his glory. All the angels will come with him. Then he will sit on his throne in the glory of heaven. All the nations will be gathered in front of him. He will separate the people in two groups. He will be like a Shepard who separates the sheep from the goats, he will put the sheep to his right and the goats to his left.

Then the king will speak to those on his right. He will say, ‘my father has blessed you come and take what is yours. It is the kingdom prepared for you since the world was created. I was hungry and yo gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you gave them to me. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

Then the people who have done what is right will answer him. ‘Lord ‘ they will ask, ‘when did we see you hungry and feed you? When did we see you thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you as a stranger and invite you in? when did we see you needing clothes and give them to you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go visit you?’

The king replied ‘What I’m about to tell you is true. Anything you did for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did for me’

Then he will say to those on his left. ‘You are cursed! go away from me into the fire that burn forever . It has been prepared for the devil and his angels. I was hungry but you gave me nothing to eat. I was thirsty but you gave me nothing to drink. I was a stranger but you didn’t invite me in. I needed clothes but you did not give me any. I was sick and in prison but you did not take care of me.

They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did I see you hungry or thirsty and not help you? when did we see you as a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison and not help you?’

He will reply, ‘what I’m about to tell you is true. Anything you didn’t do for one of the least important of these, you didn’t do for me.

Then they will go away to be punished forever. But those who have done what is right will receive eternal life.

This one right here, what ever you have done for someone less fortunate is like doing for Jesus. If you have Christ, our God  in your life than you should have been blessed with compassion, and our goals should be his grace.

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.

A moment with W.Lundy

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are grabbing on to those downloads from God, like you were catching  your blessings falling from the sky. As believers we should go forth in great things, which means that we cannot edit and put exceptions on God’s words and Laws. I believe that is why getting to know Jesus again is very important to our Christian walk.

From Sinner to Saint Blog is posted on many Facebook groups and pages. I will not say the name of the particular group or page that this post applies to, but I will say that I questioned if I even wanted to be a part of that page. Here’s what happen and the lesson.

Someone shared a photo on the page that was a picture of our present president hanging from the ledge of a high building. The caption read will you help him, yes or no?

I went into the comments because I was curious of what the people of God had to say. It appeared that a majority said no, some very hateful and others very subtle. Not thinking about anything that Jesus ( the one who gave his life so that we can go to the father clean, the one who paid the ransom for us) had taught.

Some lazy days I really don’t want to spend the time sharing to all those pages. This reminded me of why I am to post the Lord’s Bible study in groups on Facebook. I was shown a statistic that I really didn’t want to know. We cannot walk in hate and say we love God.

 “I hate this person because they are evil, someone needs to kill him, oh but yes, I love the Lord.

If we love the Lord, then we should have faith that anyone that he has allowed to be president, is in that position because it is a part of the Lord’s plan. You don’t like the Lord’s plan, because it compromises your life, or because there is so much pain in it. We can’t pray a solution with a heart full of hate. We need to be praying asking the Lord what does he need us to do about it!

If we read the word, then we know it’s not the first time the people did not like who was appointed leader, yet there was a reason that the not so great leader was appointed. This isn’t about that though maybe another moment.

When we read about Jesus and the many miracles that he performed. We learn that some miracles were commanding evil spirits from men. Jesus didn’t say die because your evil, Jesus commanded the spirit to go. He perferred to save the life of the men (Matt 8: 28-34) our positions aren’t to criticize or argue. Our positions are to bring God’s spirit with us, and allow the holy spirit to do a thing through us and into them.

I don’t agree with what is going on in this world but I do have faith enough to know, whatever it is the Lord is moving in it and through it, and has shifted it like that for a reason. I will not ask my heavenly Father what he is doing, but I will ask my Father what does he need from me.

Our faith allows us not to worry about what is here, but to only concern ourselves about what the Lord needs us to do. Anything else, the Lord will download the instructions on how to cross that bridge. In faith we follow the path that has already been cleared. When we are needed to stand in the gap, will our spirits be ready or will we be clogged with the thoughts that are not of God.

Can we pray effectively when our love is conditional? How do we  pray for others, when we can’t love others like we love ourselves ( Matt 22:39)

I encourage you all to not only read the studies that I post put open your bible right along with me. Allow God to give you a study that he has prepared just for your life. And most important have faith in what he is doing. Do not allow your flesh to pull you from your spirit man, what we can’t control is meant for God alone.

To the followers, I know this a isn’t normal Bible study we are on chapter 7 of Matthew but the Lord went in another direction and I must obey. If led chapter 7 will be posted today if not tomorrow. You can tune in on periscope tonight for today’s Jouney In Praise broadcast  my handle is @WilhelminaLundy and I go live at 7pm I will be discussing Matthew Chapter 6 and this moment in depth.

Be Blessed everyone and know that it is when we allow God to deal with the things that we have no control over, that my friends is called believing in the unseen.

Now for the important part if you want to begin a new journey with the Lord. Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible  to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation in faith through Prayer, word study, worship and fellowship. 

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.

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

If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog on WordPress, twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, welcome thanks for joining. If you are led please click the like or follow button so that you can receive notification of new post as they come in. Let me introduce myself!

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, some of the ways that I servenew-journey-in-praise-flyer is 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 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. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

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.

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 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.

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that in this day the angels are lifting you up so that your feet will not strike against any stone.

It gets hard and confusing at times, just continue to push through and grab on to God’s vision. We may not know what is going to be standing in front of us, but what we do know is that we WILL be lifted over it.

Matthew Chapter 4

Satan Tempts Jesus in the desert

Verses 1-11

The word tells us that after Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist, the spirit led him in to the desert to be tempted by the devil. After he fasted for forty days and forty nights he was hungry. The word says the tempter came and said

If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread

Jesus answered

It is written: Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word, that comes from the mouth of God

The word says that the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple

If you are Son of God, he said throw yourself down. For it is written

He will command his angels concerning you,

And they will lift you up in their hands,

So that you will not strike your foot against a stone

Jesus answered him

It is also written

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.

The word says that the devil took him to the highest mountain and said

All this I will give you, if you will bow down and worship me.

Jesus said

Away from me Satan, for it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.

Then the devil left and the angels attended to him

When we are walking toward righteousness and moving in the provision of God. We get tempted. Tempted to go back and do the things that we once have done. Tempted to step out of character. Think of Jesus who Commanded Satan to get away from him.

It’s time for us to start to command the tempter to go! And when we command Satan to go the angels will come and attend to us. Why? Because the Holy Spirit lives within us.

 

Jesus begins his ministry

Verses 12- 17

The word says when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison he returned to Galilee this fulfilled the prophesy through Isaiah

Land of Zubulun and land of Naphtali,

The way to the sea, along the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles

The people living in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of shadow of death

a light has dawned.

From that time on Jesus began to preach,

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.

No matter what goes in in our lives as Christians, we learn that the most valuable information to pass on is Salvation.

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near

This was the beginning of Jesus’s ministry be for the miracle signs, and wonders it was repent.

What the Father has already put in place will come to pass. What the father has already meant for your purpose on this earth is already waiting in the spirit realm.

 

Verses 18 – 22

Four fishermen follow Jesus

The word says that Jesus was walking along the sea and saw Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew throwing there fishing net and Jesus said to them.

Come follow me and I will make you fisher of men

And they followed. Then he saw James and his brother John who were in a boat with their father and Jesus called to them tow come with him and they did.

As I was writing this I asked why fishermen? the Holy Spirit reminded me how patient fishermen are, how patient we have to be when ministering to people. Some will jump in the net but others will run and you will have to be patient enough to let them come on their own.

 

Verses 23 – 25

The word tells us that Jesus went through Galilee preaching the good news of the kingdom in synagogues, healing the sick, ill, and disable.

When we think about Jesus we think about his sacrifice, paying the ransom for our souls. But getting to know Jesus is about his walk before he got to the sacrifice. The walk that some of us struggle to walk. The faith that it takes to allow God to rule over every aspect of our lives taking nothing back that we have given him.

Faith that allows us to be patient fishermen, faith that confirms that we are servants for the kingdom of God. Faith that allows us to heal, pray, and overcome. Faith that allows us to believe that the angels Will lift us up and our feet will not strike against a stone.

 

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.

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you ‘re moving through your day with a released heart. We will be stagnant from growth, if we are held hostage by the things that have hurt us or confused us. It becomes almost a self torture Ps 106:45 for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of great love he relented. God is ready to change his mind when it comes to our sin, so be ready to release and relent your feelings toward those that may have gotten on your bad side.(Thank you minister Barrett)

Matthew Chapter 2

Verse 1-6

Visitors Arrive from Eastern Lands

The word says after Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the wise men came from the east to Jerusalem and asked

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”

The word says king Herod was disturbed, and so was Jerusalem along with him. King Herod had called together all the priests and teachers. Herod asked them where was Jesus supposed to be born and the told him in Bethlehem then the told him what the prophet had written.

“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel”

Here we learn that Jesus has been born in Bethlehem and in that someone has already seen him as a threat before he even could speak. I want you to think about your purpose that thing you want to do so bad and I want you to realize that there are people that will try to stop you before you step out of the gate.

Herod saw Jesus as  threat ! let’s continue

Verse 7-12

Herod called the wise men to meet with him and find out exactly what time the star appeared, them he told them to go seek the child and report back to him so that he can worship him as well. The word says the went on their journey and followed the star until it stopped where Jesus was. They were overjoyed, when they came to the house they saw Jesus with his mother Mary and they worshipped him. They then opened their treasures and presented Jesus with Gold, incense, and myrrh. They were warned in a dream not to go back to king Herod they ended up going back to their country another route.

After I read this I wanted to know the meanings of the gifts so here you go

Gold =Divinity

Incense/frankincense = used for worship

Myrrh= used for embalming/ also mixed with wine to make a drink, the same drink that the Savior was given before he was crucified. It is said to be a stupefying potion

My spirit tells me these gifts would be what Jesus would be from the beginning to his crucifixion.

Verse 13 – 18

The escape to Egypt

The word says that when the wise men had left an angel had come to Joseph and told him to get up and escape Egypt with his wife and Jesus. The angel told him to stay there, until he comes back, the angel told Joseph that Herod will search for Jesus to kill him.

The word says that Joseph got up and took Jesus and Mary in the middle of the night and left for Egypt. And so, the word of the Lord through his prophet was confirmed

“Out of Egypt I called my son”

The word says that when Herod realized that he was tricked by the wise men he ordered for all boys under the age of 2yrs old to be killed. He went by the time frame, that the wise men told him that the star appeared. The word says that then the prophet Jeremiah’s prophesy was fulfilled

“A voice is heard in Ramah,

Weeping and great mourning,

Rachel weeping for her children

And refusing to be comforted,

Because they are no more.”

If you follow this blog you know that my faith tells me that God confirms the word of his servant. If you are moving in what God has placed you to do, and you are praising him and letting move in your life. Then you are a servant of God. Just as Prophet Jeremiah’s word was fulfilled so will yours.

Verse 19 – 23

The word tells us that after Herod died an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph and told him to take Jesus and Mary to Israel. The angel told Joseph that the ones who were trying to take the life of Jesus was dead. When Joseph was on his way to Israel he heard that the son of Herod had now took his father’s place and this scared Joseph so he went to Nazareth and then the word of the prophet was fulfilled.

“He will be called a Nazarene”

Reading this chapter with renewed eyes is very different for me. When I first read this chapter years ago I just looked at it as a story but with renewed eyes I see. The Gods word will always come to pass. The word of the prophet is things that God as told the prophets that the relay to the people.

It also shows me that God shifts things so that his word will come to pass when you wal in righteousness as Joseph did, you gain the gift of discernment and this is exactly what Joseph used to get to Nazareth.

Walking by faith is how we walk in righteousness walking in purpose is how we walk with God how we worship him with our work (thank you Alethia Hudson) be blessed everyone s if you go to the Journey in praise Facebook page you will be able to see the video that was made when I received revelation on this word.

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.

I Samuel Chapter 31

Saul takes his life

Verse 1-13

The word says; the Philistines fought against Israel and the Israelites ran from them, many Israelites were killed in Mount Gilboa. In this fight Saul’s three sons were killed Jonathan, Abindab, and Malki-Shua and when the archers saw Saul they wounded him. Saul didn’t want to die in the hands of his enemy, he told his armor bearer to drive the sword in him. The armor bear was afraid and didn’t want to do it, so Saul took his own life by falling on his sword. When they armor bearer saw that Saul was dead he did the same to himself. When the Israelites that were on the Jordan river saw that the Israel army had fled and Saul and his sons were dead the left their towns and ran.

The next day the Philistines found the bodies of Saul and his sons and they cut off Saul’s head and sent a message to the Philistines. The Philistines took the body and armor of Saul to the temple of the Ashtoreth and fastened his body on the wall of Beth Shan.

The word says when the people of Jabesh Gilead heard what happen they went and retrieved the body of Saul and his sons and buried them at a tree in Jabesh.

When Saul took matters in to his own hand it didn’t work out for him. Saul only wanted the Lords opinion when necessary. Saul didn’t walk a righteous life, he used the Lords like an ATM. We must be careful with this action we must be able to place the Lord in every aspect of our lives, we cannot pick and choose what the Lord can be sovereign over and what he can’t

Blessing everyone,

 

I pray that you are working within the Lord’s presences, when we are building a Foundation of Faith, one of the most important things to know is; we can’t do it alone. We are not meant to do it alone. Gen 2:18 tells us that it is not good for a man to be alone. (you may say come on Wilhelmina that is referring to a man and a woman) Lev 25:35 If one of your countrymen becomes poor and unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. This shows us that it is not good for man to be alone or anyone for that matter. When we begin to have children, we were given more helpers. We are born as a helper in our tribe. When two or more are gathered God is in our mist. (you and your helpers) Last one, and when there is no help; Psalm 72:12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. We can’t do it on our own, it is not only our responsibility to each other it is one of our commandments, and for those who can’t get any help the Lord steps in and shifts things and then places divine help.

I Samuel Chapter 30

David destroys the Amalekites

Verse 1 -10

The word says that on the third day David and his men Ziklag and the Amelikites had raided Negev and Ziklag. They had burned it, taken the women captive old and young they didn’t kill anyone but they took them and went on their way.

The word says that the men cried out loud until they had no strength. Their wives and children were taken including David’s. The men wanted to stone David, they blamed him for this. But David found strength in the Lord. David told Abiathar to bring him the ephod, when Abiathat brought the ephod David inquired of the Lord

“shall I pursue this raiding party? Will I take them over?”

The Lord responded

“pursue them, you will certainly overtake them and succeed in the rescue”

The word says six hundred men went with him where two hundred were too tired to continue and the four hundred went on.

I’m going to jump the gun remember when the Lord told Saul to destroy the Amalekites (see chapter 15) are you thinking what I’m thinking. David is going to do what Saul failed to do. But I’m going to hold it this isn’t a long chapter lets continue.

Verse 10 -31

The word says that David’s men brought an Egyptian to him and they feed him and gave him water (remember Lev 25:35) the word says that the Egyptian was revived he had not eaten or drunk anything for three days and three nights.

David asked the man to whom do you belong? And the Egyptian man told David that he was a slave abandoned by his master an Amalekite when he became ill. He told David all the places that they raided which included Negev and burning down Ziklag

David asked the Egyptian slave if he could lead him to the raid party, and the slave was willing as long as David wouldn’t kill him or hand him to his master. The Egyptian slave led David to where the Amalekites were and they were spread over the country side enjoying the plunder of their raids; the word says that David fought them from dusk until the evening of the next day. David recovered everything that the Amalekites took including his two wives. He took the flock and herds, and his men drove everything ahead of him saying “This is David’s plunder”

On their way back, they came to the ravine where the two hundred men were, the evil men among David said that the men that didn’t go should get nothing, but they can take their wives and children and go. David told his men No, they must not do that with what the Lord has given you, the Lord has protected us, and handed over the forces that came up against us.

David told his men that the share of the men who stayed behind well be the same as the men who went to battle.

The word says when David got back to Ziklag he sent some of the plunder to the elders of Judah they were his friends with the message

“Here is a present for you, from the plunder of the enemy”

David sent plunder to friends in Bethel, Ramoth, Negev, and Jattir, Aroe, Siphmoth

,Eshtemoa, and Racal he also sent to Jerahmeelites. Kenites, and people in Hormah, Bor Ashan,  Athach and Hebron and all the other places that he had roamed.

When the Lord told David to go forth to recover what was taken from the Amalekites, the Amalekites that the Lord told Saul to destroy. Now here it’s been put into position for David to be on one Accord with God, and things have been shifted to make sure that it is strategically played out.

The Lord provided help for David, the Egyptian slave had gotten sick, and was left behind to die, the Lord sent him help, the Lord positioned David to be there to help the slave, the Lord had positioned the slave to David.

We all have to be ready and in position to help, and to except help. In the intro without readying the chapter the Lord gave me scripture on help. Whomever this word is for, be ready to help, be ready to except help.

 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.

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that where ever you are the Lord is showing up for you, I pray that your faith is building stronger and your foundation is brick strong. Even though we may have some hard days and sometimes you may even question your faith. Those times are needed, those are the times when we need to lay prostrate, or read the word, or maybe go to fellowship at church bible study to just a conversation with a fellow Christian.

1 Samuel chapter 27

David among the Philistines

 

The word says that David thought to himself that one of those days he would be destroyed by the hands of Saul. He thought the best thing that he could do was, escape to the land of the Philistines. He felt then Saul would give up his search and he could slip away.

The word says that David and six hundred men and their wives, this included David’s two wives all went to Gath. When Saul found out that David had went to Gath he stopped searching for him.

The word says that David had said to Achish the son of the king of Gath, that if he had found favor on David then to assign a place for him on the country side. David reason was

“why should your servant live in the royal city with you”

the scripture says on that day Achish gave David Ziklag and it has belonged to the king of Judah ever since. The word says that David lived in Philistine territory for a year and four months.

While David was with Achish in Gath, he would raided the Geshurites, the Girzites and the Amalekites and he would kill men and women leaving no one alive to be able to tell what he did. And when Achish would ask him where he went raiding that day, David would tell him against the desert of the Kenites, or against the desert of Judah and he would be dishonest with  Achish as long as he was in Gath. Achish trusted David and said to himself

“He has become Odious (unpleasant) to his people, the Israelites, that he will be my servant forever.”

This is a short chapter but it packs with so much vital information about David’s survival. David knew that Saul wouldn’t stop, he knew that Saul couldn’t control himself. He also knew that he couldn’t sleep among the Philistines while they knew he was killing their people, but what made sense was that if he killed everyone then Achish would think it was Saul that was killing them.
