I serve as the Founder of Journey in Praise Ministry and women in praise Facebook group, I am also the Author of Service in Glory devotional.  Okay Let’s get in to the word of God!

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 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 are a follower of F.S.T.S thank you for your support, and fellowship. If you happen to be scrolling and came across this blog, Welcome! If you are fled please follow so that you can receive notification of  new studies.

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. Get into a holy spirit led bible study, a bible based church and a like minded fellowship group and build your foundation on faith

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.

you can Email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com for prayer request, study questions or others.

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

1 Samuel Chapter 16

1 Samuel chapter 16

Samuel anoints David

verse 1 – 7

The Lord asked Samuel how long he will mourn for Saul, since he was rejected as king of Israel. The Lord tells Samuel to get himself together, fill his horn with oil and be on his way to Jesse of Bethlehem where the Lord had chosen one of Jesse’s sons to be king.

Samuel said to the Lord. How can I do the Saul will find out and kill me. The Lord tells Samuel to take a heifer with him and say he is going to sacrifice, the  Lord tells Samuel to invite Jesse and his son’s to the sacrifice and the Lord will show him what to do. The Lord tells Samuel that he was to anoint the one the Lord has indicated.

Samuel did as the Lord told him. When Samuel arrived in town the elders greeted him with worry they asked him if he came in peace. Samuel told the people that he had come to sacrifice, he consecrated Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.

When they arrived Samuel saw Eliab and Samuel thought that the anointed was already there as surely as Eliab was standing. but the Lord told Samuel not to look at his appearance or his height for the He ( the Lord) had rejected Eliab.

In this scripture the Lord says to Samuel how long are you going to mourn Saul. Sometimes when we are working on something and putting our everything into it and it fails we can go into depression not want to do anything else. But the Lord says how long are you going to mourn it. It’s time to get up and do a new thing. was Saul Samuel’s  purpose? no his purpose was to find a king for the people so now he has to fill his horn with oil and get up and find a king.

The same thing applies to us we may be working on something birthing a new thing in our purpose and then it doesn’t work out the way you want it to. The Lord is saying don’t just sit there and soak about what didn’t work, get up and start the next thing until your purpose is fulfilled.

Really quick, I want to touch on Eliab. Samuel saw Eliab and said “the anointed is right there”. I’m sure his mind said the Lord doesn’t need me. The Lord says to him don’t look at his appearance or his height for I have rejected him. We are reminded that we can not look at someones outer appearance or the stories that we heard about them to compare to ourselves we have to go in following instruction and focused on the instruction. looking at someone else will just distract you from what you are suppose to be doing. There is no need to judge on appearance and word we do not know their heart or their walk with God.

verse 8 – 13

Jesse brought seven sons before Samuel, and none of them were the one that the Lord had chosen. Samuel asked Jesse if he had another son and Jesse told him about the youngest that was tending to the sheep. Samuel told him to go get the son they would not sit down until he came. When Jesse’s youngest son walked in the Lord said to Samuel “Rise and anoint him; he is the one” Samuel took the oil from the horn and anointed him in the presence of his brothers and from that day on the spirit of the Lord came upon David. the word says that Samuel then went to Ramah.

Glory to God let me just say this When in a relationship with God it’s important to move when He says. in order for us to be able to move in what the Lord says we need to ask the Lord to purge us of all things that is not of him. Gory God. Had Samuel not been in a relationship with God he would have anointed the wrong brother. when we don’t follow his instruction we end up in the wrong position.

David in Saul’s Service

The spirit of the Lord had departed from Saul and he was tormented with an evil spirit the word says this came from the Lord. Saul’s attendants suggested that he find someone who can play the Harp for him when the Evil spirit comes upon him and this would make him feel better.

Saul sent his attendants to find someone. One of the servants stated that the son of Jesse plays the Harp and then he begins breaking down David’s attributes. The word say that Saul then sent a messenger to Jesse’s house saying “Send me your son David” Jesse loaded a donkey and gifts and sent David on his way.

When Saul saw David he liked him, he made David his armor-bearer and sent Message to Jesse. asking him to allow David to stay, he was pleased with him. The word says that whenever a spirit from God came upon Saul David would play the Harp, Saul would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.

Glory be to God as I was reading this scripture I had to say “Look at God”. We know that Samuel did not want to run in to Saul. we know that when God’s spirit left from Saul it left a spirit Devastation, depression, Hate, Mourn they all laid on Saul he went from nothing to king but what pained him was he didn’t follow God’s instruction and he knew he was rejected as king. 

The Lord anointing David before he went in to Saul’s house was a blessing. The power of God was with him. His instructions was to be in positions and follow instructions. To stand in his purpose. (Which we know is to take over as king, for God is not a man that he should lie.)

As we walk through this day let’s remember that on a foundation of faith you stand firm, no matter what you have to go through to get there ( Samuel hands were probably sore, he was tired, he missed his sheep, and arguing with his brothers.) When God is with us, and we stay obedient, we stand in Power. Yeah it’s hard at times, you may even fail as Saul did. But it’s your choice to get up and move on as God told Samuel or be stuck with a spirit that reminds you of your failures. To be soothed by the anointing of the person that will take your place. To love him because he did the one thing that put your mind at ease. Stuck in a spirit is conviction of all your shoulda, coulda, woulda’s Remember to follow instructions God told Samuel “How long are you going to mourn Saul? fill your horn with oil and lets go to the next one”

Now for the important part, If you are looking for Salvation and you want to begin building you foundation on faith Download the free bible app, google , or turn your bibles to Roman 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Start your bible I encourage you to go to this chapter and read it, see what the Lord shows you. A Foundation of faith is built on Prayer, Worship, Word Study, Fellowship and Praise Applying it to your life is staying in position for instructions.

Be Blessed!

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are walking and building in faith, Glory to God. At times it may feel as if there is something coming at you at every angle but it’s your walk in faith and that you stand on a solid foundation of faith that you know that God has already worked it out for you.

1 Samuel Chapter 14

Jonathan attacks the Philistines

Verses 1 – 14

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

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

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

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

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

Israel routs the Philistines

verses 15 – 23

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

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

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

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

verse 24 – 48

Jonathan eats honey

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1 Samuel Chapter 5

Hello Everyone,

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

Also there is the Prayer wall if you would like to be added you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com okay let’s get in to the word.

1 Samuel Chapter 5

1-samuel-1024x576the Ark in Ashdod and Ekron

verse 1 -5

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

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

verse 6 – 12

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

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

Now for the Important part if you are looking for Salvation if you will like to start a new and be in the presence of God turn your bible, google, or download the free bible app and turn to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. start a prayer life and get in to the word and allow the Lord to turn it around for you.

Ezekiel Chapter 39

images

In this chapter The Lord tells Ezekiel to prophesy against Gog and say that the Lord will Turn him around and send him against the mountain of Israel. That is where the Lord will strike his bow from his left hand and his arrows will fall from his right hands. On the mountain of Israel is where he and his army will become food to the birds and wild animals.

The Lord says at this time he will no longer make his holy name be profaned. The nations will know that His name is the Holy One in Israel.

The Lord says that their weapons will be used as fuel for the people of Israel, for seven years they will not have to cut down trees because they will use the weapons of Gog and his army. The Lord says they will loot and rob all who loot and robbed them.

The Lord says that He will give Gog a burial-place in Israel, It will block the way of the travelers, because Gog and his Army will be buried there. It will be called the Valley of Hamon Gog. For seven months the house of Israel will bury them in order to cleanse the land. Men will be regularly employed to cleanse the land.

They will go through the land and one man will mark the sites for the gravediggers to bury the bones.

The Lord says to Ezekiel to call all the birds and wild animals and there will be a great sacrifice. you will drink the blood and eat the flesh of great men.

The Lord says from that day the house of Israel will know that He is Lord. all the nations will know that the people of Israel went in to exile for their sin and I hid my face from them and dealt with them according to their sin.

The Lord says I will now bring them  back from captivity and will have compassion on all the people of Israel. They will forget their shame and all unfaithfulness.

After reading this chapter I have been reminded, that God wants us to forget our shame, after we have been cleansed and saved. Sometimes we hold on to the use to; as we are trying to walk in faith. we can’t build a faith like bricks if our bricks are cracked.  cracked bricks will collapse. God wants us to let go of what we once did, he has dealt with us accordingly. Jesus has already died for those sins, he laid it on the cross for us. Saints I tell you what ever wrong you have done that kept you from God, is in the pass it’s on your dirty garment which has been taken off of you. Allow yourself to understand that the Lord has already erased that he turned his back from your sin and he now looks at you with compassion. So if the Lord has turned his back from your sin then you need to as well. It’s the only way for you to build your faith in God that will not allow life’s storms to come and knock you down.

Now for the Important part if you are looking for Salvation if you will like to start a new and be in the presence of God turn your bible, google, or download the free bible app and turn to Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth that Jesus christ is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. start a prayer life and get in to the word and allow the Lord to turn it around for you.

Be Blessed.

The Lord tells Ezekiel to prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say, the other nations have made you their possession out of malice and zeal. The Lord says I swear with uplifted hands that the nations around you will also suffer scorn.

The Lord says but you Israel, the people will come home, and you will multiply and your branches will bare fruit. Your towns will be fixed and rebuilt. The number of animals and men will increase, and they will be fruitful and increase. My people will walk around you and they will possess you, and you will be their inheritance. And then you will know that I am Lord.

No Longer will you hear the taunts of how you use to be. None of this will be for your sake, but for the sake of my name says the Lord. All the nations will know that I am Lord. The Lord says, I will take you out of the nations, I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back to your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you and you will be clean, the Lord says, that he will give a renewed heart and put a new spirit in you.

Hey Everyone!

Thanks for joining in, The holidays are coming and everyone is getting busy. Let’s remember what the Holiday is all about. the birth of our savior without him we would all be sacrificing animals and living a life under the Law.

To my followers Thanks for joining in I appreciate you guys so much. If you are new to this page welcome and thanks for joining in as well. Let me Introduce myself.

 

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the Sovereign God there is nothing new-journey-in-praise-flyerlike serving God. Knowing someone will be introduced, to his love and grace is the best feeling that we can have as a human being. Here on From Sinner To Saint blog is one of the ways that I serve the Lord, through sharing his word with all of you. Some of the other ways is the Journey In Praise ministry which sprouts out three ways. One is the broadcast where we are building a foundation on faith like bricks. you can find me on periscope at @Wilhelmina Lundy and YouTube at Journey In Praise. Next the Lord allows me to serve him through the podcast where you can hear an encouraging word. Praise God, and you can find me on Soundcloud or Itunes Bless the Lord. Journey In Praise can also be found in blog form with the scripture of the day at http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com. And last but not least the Lord allows a prayer wall and here I am able to pray with those who would like to be on the wall. If you would like to be added  to the wall, you can send your name and request to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com Praise God these are the ways that the Lord has allowed me to fellowship with you all. Now that the Introduction is finished let’s get into the word!

Ezekiel Chapter 34 Shepherds and sheep

images

Verses 1 -6

The Lord says to Ezekiel to Prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. the have eaten very well and was clothed yet they did not take care of his sheep. the flock are scattered all over and left to become food for wild animals.

The Job of a leader is important if you allow the lost to roam and not bring him back and nourish him as you should then the Lord will turn his back to you. If we watch someone fall and walk were we know that wild dogs are waiting then the Blood is on our hands. Just like when we have children if we don’t raise out children to know that they eat from the hands of the Lord they will grow astray and eat from the wrong hands.

verse 7 -10

The Lord says the flock lacks a shepherd and has become food for all wild animals, and his shepherds did not search for them, but cared for themselves. The Lord says that he is against the shepherd and will hold them accountable for the flock, the shepherd will know longer feed themselves. They Lord says he will rescue the flock and will no longer be food for them.

When we think about the church and we think about the pastors who are well off without any concern for how the parishioners are, that’s a shepherd only out to feed himself. When a parishioner is lost hurt or whitewashing his faith the shepherd is not worried or concerned about restoring the faith.

Verse 11 -16

The Lord says that He will look after his sheep himself and search for them as the shepherd would do. And he will recuse them from being scattered on the days of clouds and darkness. The Lord says he will tend them on green pasture.The Lord says he will search for the lost and bring back the stray, he says he will bind up the injured and weak. and destroy the sleek and strong.

I want to stop there because If we are too strong then we don’t need God. He comes in to our weakness and becomes our strength am I making sense. there is not one perfect person we all have weakness praise God! we are thankful that the Lord decided to be our shepherd and to lay us in green pastures. Bless the Lord.

verse 17 – 24

The Lord says that he will judge between the sheep that the fat sheep were willing to push the weak sheep out the way. Not only are they drinking clean water they are muddying it and trampling the pasture making it unable for others to eat. The Lord says that he will make his servant David the shepherd.

The Lord tells us that he will judge those that are twisting the word, the food when we sit at the Lords table to eat there are some that will feed us false words corrupt and spoiled food. making our foundation on weak faith. The Lords servants are good shepherds because the move by the word of the Lord. A servants job is to feed Gods people the harvest.

verse 25 – 31

The Lord says that he will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of wild beast, so that they may be able to live and sleep in safety. The Lord says that he will bless his sheep with crops and trees that bear fruit. And they will know that he is Lord.

God wants us to be well he doesn’t want us to hunger for anything, but we have to be ready to eat and have faith like bricks. rest on Ezekiel 34:26-29 and  be assured that the Lord wants to shower us with blessings, He wants us to have crops and pasture, he wants us to have trees that will yield fruit. Praise God.

Now for the Important part. If you are lost and looking for your Shepard. the sovereign Lord is waiting on you. Turn your bible, google or download the free bible app go to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is lord and died on the cross. Believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead then you will be saved. All the Lord to bless you with crops and bountiful trees of fruit.

Be Blessed.

Ezekiel Chapter 31 A Cedar in Lebanon

verse 1 – 4

Ezekiel says in the eleventh year in the third month on the first day. The Lord says to him tell the Pharaoh king of Egypt and his large amount from people. Who can be compared with your beauty? Consider Assyria, once a cedar in Lebanon,with beautiful branches overshadowing the forest; it towered on high. It’s top above the thick foliage. The waters nourished it, deep springs made  it grow tail; their streams flowed all around its base and sent their channels to all the trees of the field.

verse 5 -7

So it towered higher than all the trees of the field; it’s boughs and increased and its branches grew long, spreading because  of abundant waters. All the birds of the air nested in the boughs, all the beast of the field gave birth under its branches;  all the great nations livid in its shade. It was majestic in beauty, with its spreading boughs, for its roots went down to abundant waters.

verse 8 -9

The cedars in the garden of God could not rival it, nor could the pine trees equal its boughs, nor could the plane tree equal its boughs, nor could the plane  trees compare with its branches no tree in the garden of God  could match its beauty. I made it beautiful with abundant branches, the envy of all the trees of Eden in the garden of God.

verse 10 – 14

The sovereign Lord says; because it was lifted high and above the thick foliage it was proud of its height. The Lord handed it over to the ruler of the nations. and the most ruthless of foreign nations cut it down and left it. And all who depend on its shade (protection) will go down right along with it.

This chapter reminds me that it’s easy to fall, as easy as it is to except the beauty that the Lord uses to create us. because we feel loved and made with special care we tend to lose a grip to why he made us beautiful and become proud and boastful. This chapter reminds us that even the proud and boastful fall the beautiful will drop due to their own pride. lets be careful not to believe we are better than the next man. God made our spirits for his purpose not our own.

Now for the important part. If you are looking for salvation and would like to begin a relationship with the sovereign Lord google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and died on the cross and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, You shall be saved. Start a prayer life and get in to the word, begin a relationship with the Lord that will take you to new heights.

Be Blessed
