Ezekiel chapter 30 A Lament for Egypt

Verse 1 – 4

In these verses the Lord tells Ezekiel to wail for Egypt because the day is coming that the Lord has warned,the cloud will come and be over Egypt. The sword will be against Egypt and anguish will come to Cush when they fall in Egypt the wealth will go away and everything that kept Egypt going will be torn down.

verse 5 -8

Cush, Put, Lydia,Arabia will all suffer and fall with Egypt all of the allies of Egypt will fall and so will the strength of Egypt fail. from Migdol to Aswan this the Lord Declares. They will be empty and the land around them will be empty and they will be among ruined cities everything around them will be destroyed. The Lord says then they will know that I am Lord when I set fire to Egypt and all her helpers are crushed.

verse 9 -12

The Lord says that he will send messengers out to frighten Cush. The Lord says he will put an end to a large group of people in Egypt by the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. He and his army will be brought in to save the land. They will fill the land with the slain and the Lord says he will dry up the Nile and sell the land to evil men; and the hand of foriegners.The Lord will make the land and everything in it a waste. The Lord have spoken

verse 13 – 19

The lord says that he will destroy all the idols and put and end to the images in Memphis. There will no longer be a prince of Egypt. The Lord will spread fear throughout Egypt and set fire to Zoan there will be no upper Egypt. and inflict punishment on Thebes, his wrath will be poured out on Pelusium, the stronghold of Egypt. Storms and swords will over take these cities and they will go into captivity. When the yoke is broken from Egypt her proud strength will end says the Lord and they will know the He is Lord.

verse 20 – 26

In the eleventh years in the first month on the seventh day the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and says the he as broken the arm of  Pharoah king of Egypt and it has not been splinted and can not hold a sword. The Lord says he will send the King of Babylon and he will go up against the King of Egypt. the Lord will have broken both of the king of Egypt arms and he will groan before Nebuchadnezzar like a wounded man. the king of Nebuchadnezzar arms will be strengthened. and when the Lord puts his sword in the hands of the king of Babylon then all the people of Egypt will be scattered then they will know that He is Lord

Praise God, as I was reading this chapter my mind kept thinking that no enemy can stand against my God , No enemy can harm his people they will not get away with it. I serve a strong and mighty God. If you were with me through the book of Daniel then we know that this was a come up for Nebuchadnezzar. It shows why the Lord had given Nebuchanezzar all those years of  going out of his mind when he thought he was responsible for his success. We Learn that the Lord will position us to build our kingdom to be great rulers of our household. So Think about all the things that we think we want and doubt God can give us wondering how.  If he did it before, he will do it again. He has the power to take from the undeserving and give to the deserving. He has the power to hand your enemies over to you. 

It’s not something we pray for it’s moving one person out the way to bless many people. Taking from that selfish person and giving to that person who will feed millions. remember to sow into others their business, ministries, products because God sowed in to you when you needed.

Be Blessed.

Ezekiel Chapter 28

Hey Everyone

Thanks for joining in. To my followers Thanks for your support of the father’s business, if you are new to this page let me introduce myself.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve the sovereign Lord is here on the bible study blog, and the Journey in Praise ministry. If you are on Facebook you can like the journeyinpraise page and receive notice of all the Journey outlets. If you are not on Facebook here’s how you can stay connected http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com, @journeyinpraise on YouTube, soundcloud and Itunes @WilhelminaLundy on Periscope.

Last but not least 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.

Ezekiel Chapter 28

verse 1 -10

The Lord told Ezekiel to tell the ruler of Tyre that his pride in his heart  made him think that he was god in the heart of the seas. but he was only man not god. Even though he thought he was as wise as god. The Lord asked Are you wiser than Daniel? Are secrets hidden from you?

Through wisdom and understanding you gained wealth for yourself and gold and silver in your treasures, by your trading skills you increased your wealth and because of your wealth you have grown proud.

Ezekiel tells the ruler of Tyre the sovereign Lord says because you think you are wise as god. I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of the nations, they will draw their swords against you. You will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. Will you then say you are god, in the hands of the ones who slay you.

When dealing with success we have to be as humble as we can be. acknowledge that the Lord is the reason for all that we have. we can not feel as if we are zero no higher, that we are untouchable. when we act as if we are god due to our success the fall is hard. It ‘s a trip with a belly flop to the ground at the end. In every successful action don’t forget to give God the Glory and thanksgiving for his favor and presence over your life.

verse 11 – 19

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and he says the sovereign Lord you were perfect and beautiful, you were in Eden and all stones adorn you, you were a guardian cherub. you were blameless till wickedness was found in you. it spread and you were filled with violence and you sinned.

The Lord says i drove you out and expelled you. your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. I throw you to the earth and I made a spectacle of you before kings. You have come to a horrible end and will be no more.

That’s exactly how we need to look at it, when you do something wrong you are risking your place in Eden think back to Adam and eve, when we think we know more than God then it’s time to go.

Prophecy against Sidon

The Lord says to Ezekiel to prophecy against Sidon and tell them that the Lord says he is against them, and he will gain glory with in her. When he inflicts punishment on her and shows himself holy within her, with the sword on every side then they will know that he is Lord. No longer will the people of Israel have malicious neighbors. Then they will know that he is Lord.

The Lord says when he gathers the people of Israel up he will show himself Holy. then they will live in the land that he gave his servant Jacob. They will live there in safety, when he rids them of the neighbors who tried to get them to do evil, then they will know he is Lord.

As any father the Lord has always rid his children from people who would try to malice (entice with evil)  them. Have you ever been in a position where you had a friend that always tried to get you in trouble, and the Lord would rid them from your life. It’s important that we don’t allow them back in. Even now the father is concerned about making sure you receive the blessings he prepared for you. Glory to God.

Now for the important part. If you are looking for salvation. Google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible toi Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. read the word daily and spend time in his presence, he’s waiting on you.

Ezekiel Chapter 19

A lament for Israel’s Princes

verse 1 – 14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now for the Important part if you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get in to the word and enjoy a relationship with sovereign God.

Ezekiel Chapter 18

Happy Monday Everyone,

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

For those who do not know my name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is through this bible study blog. This is where I come to you guys with the word of the Lord so that we can spend sometime with God. Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,  a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written, the righteous will live by faith. This tells us through the word, God will reveal himself and build our faith. Glory to God. Next is the Journey In Praise ministry where you can find me on FaceBook (@journeyinpraise), periscope (@WilhelminaLundy) and YouTube @(journeyinpraise) Itunes (@journeyinpraise) and soundcloud (@journeyinpraise) at these outlets you can find me speaking the word of the Lord, and last but not least the prayer wall If you would like to be added to the prayer wall you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com. Now let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel chapter 18

The soul who sins will die

verse 1 -3 

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

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

verse 5-9

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

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

verse 10-13

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

verse 14 – 17

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

Verse 18 -20

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

verse 21 – 24

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

Verse 25- 32

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

This chapter reminds us that if we do wrong we reap the consequences. all the Sovereign Lord wants us to do is be in a relationship with him. the more we study and stay in the word the closer we get to him the more we want to please him. Last Thursday I had an honor in joining in on pastor Kimberly Jones Prayer Protocol Boot camp. It was a phenomenal experience I came out of the experience understand how Important it is to be in Gods presence. Activating the ability to pray in the spirit. If you are interested you can find more info at Kimberly J.net 

Now to the Important stuff, If you are looking for salvation and ready to begin that relationship with God. Google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved. get yourself in a relationship with God and allow him to turn it around for you. Building confidence ,faith and strength. He will do it for you. Praise God

Ezekiel Chapter 13 false prophets condemned

verse 1-7

Ezekiel says that the word of the Lord came to him. Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who are now prophesying. say to those who are prophesying out of their own Imagination; ‘Here the word of the Lord this is what the sovereign says; Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit and has seen nothing! Your prophets O’Israel are like jackals among ruins. you have not gone up to the breaks in the wall to repair it for the house of Israel so that it will stand firm in the battle on the day of the Lord. There visions are false and there divinations are a lie. they say “the Lord declares,” when the Lord has not sent them; yet they expect there words to be fulfilled. Have you not seen false visions and uttered lying divination when you say, “The Lord declares,” though I have not spoken?

I’m sure that you have heard many times to beware of false prophet. In verses 1-7 God is saying to Ezekiel it’s time for you to prophesy about those that are not building anyone, that are speaking their imagination, I have not spoken. In the Romans 1:17 tells us in the gospel God is revealed. In our knowledge of the word God will tell us, what is from him and what is from someones imagination. That’s why it is important to move forth in our study and reach to eat from the tree of life. being close to God is living.

verse 8- 12

Ezekiel says, the Lord says to him to say  Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Because of your false words and lying visions,  I am against you, declares the sovereign Lord. My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people, or be listed in the records of the house of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the sovereign Lord. Because they lead my people  astray, saying, “peace,” when there is no peace, and because, when a flimsy wall is built, they cover it with whitewash, therefore tell those who cover it with whitewash that it is going to fall. rain will come in torrents, and I will send hailstones hurtling down, and violent winds will burst forth. when the wall collapses, will people not ask you, where is the whitewash you covered it with?

A prophet is to build the people for whats to come. The Lord tells Ezekiel tell the false prophets that the have led his people astray using the word peace when there wasn’t any peace. The Lord says to Ezekiel to tell the false prophets, that they will not be in the Land of Israel and they will not be listed in the record.

verse 13 – 16

Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: In my wrath I will unleash a violent wind, and in my anger hailstones and torrents of rain will fall with destructive fury. I will tear down the wall you have covered with whitewash and will  level it to the ground so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you will be destroyed in it;  and you will know that I am Lord. So I will spend my wrath against the  wall and against those who covered it with whitewash. I will say to you, the wall is gone and so are those who whitewashed it, those prophets of Israel who prophesied Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her when there was no peace, declares the Sovereign.

The Lord says he will send a storm and tear down the whitewash. If you are built up with weakness when you go through the storm those walls will fall down.

verse 17 – 19

The Lord says to Ezekiel; Now son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people who prophesy out of their own imagination. Prophesy against them and say, This is what the Sovereign Lord says; Woe to the woman who sew magic charms on all their wrists and make veils of various lengths for their heads in order to ensnare people. Will you ensnare the lives of my people but preserve your own? You have Profaned me among my people for a few handfuls of barkley and scraps of bread. By lying to my people, who listen to lies, you have killed those who should not have died and have spared those who should not live.

The Lord says to the women who disrespected him for scraps and bread that they have trapped the Lords people, you have killed those that could have been saved. yet spared those who should have been dead. all for your own gain. when you false prophesy you are setting a person up on the wrong road you are selfishly effecting their lives. making them believe that they will be closer to God in the charms and veils.

verse 20 -23

Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: I am against your magic charms with which you ensnare people like birds and I will tear them from your arms; I will set free the people who you ensnare like birds. I will tear off your veils and save my people from your hands, and they will no longer fall prey to your power. Then you will know that I am the Lord.Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies, when I had brought them no grief, and because you encourage the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their lives. therefore you will no longer see false visions or practice divination. I will save my people from your hands. And then you will know that I am the Lord.

The Lord says that he is against the charms and veils that he is not in it. The Lord says that he will break his people from the power believing in the charms and veils and then they will know that he is sovereign. It makes me think about the television shows selling holy water and anointed oil and prayer clothes making people believe that God will hear them more clear if the do this our sow that. the way to God is in relationship. I don’t like to speak on others ministry but I will tell you before you buy in to all that know where your faith is.

Now for the important part If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Get your self in to a relationship with God through the Word and allow God to place you on high and order your steps God Bless You

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the Most High Sovereign God. There is nothing better than being a servant of the Almighty. The ways that I serve the Lord is this blog, and the Journey In Praise blog and broadcast. If you are on Periscope you can catch the broadcast Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7pm. If you don’t have Periscope you can catch the up and view the videos at @journeyinpraise on YouTube and FaceBook. Okay let’s get in to the word

Ezekiel Chapter 6

verse 1-7

The Lord says Ezekiel, to set his face against the mountains of Israel and; Prophesy against them and say:  The Sovereign Lord says that he will bring a sword against you and destroy your high places. You alters and incense alters will be demolished. The Lord says to tell Israel that he will slay the people in front of their idols. your people will fall slain and know that I am Lord.

 verse 8- 10

The Lord says that he will spare some, and some will escape the land.  When Israel is scattered among the land, and the nations. Those who escaped will remember the Lord. The Lord says; how I have been grieved  by your adulterous hearts which have turned away from me, and by their eyes which lusted after their Idols. They will loathe (dislike) them selves for the evil they have done. They will know I am Lord , I did not threaten them in vain to bring this calamity on them

In these verses we learned that the Lord sends the warning ing Ezekiel’s Prophesy letting Israel know all the things that will come to the. The Lord also lets them know why. While reading I thought about all that we do now . If your smart phone or wi-fi no-longer works what would you do? are we Idolizing those things, putting them before God. Even as I write this blog I think a couple of times I checked my phone, For what? I don’t know. what I do know is through this lesson I know, that I need to ask God to make me less dependant on the things that are not of him.

verse 11-14

In these verse The Lord tell Ezekiel to tell Israel that the will fall from, the sword, plague ,and famine. those that are close will die from the sword, those that are far away will die from the plague and those that survives will suffer from famine. the Lord says that he will make the land that they live a waste.

Just think God gave them 390 years to get their stuff together. we are lucky that we have Jesus christ who took on the suffering for us. I’m sure looking outside or even scrolling Facebook you are seeing less of the Lord everyday. Lets not be like Israel lets take note of the warning, so that we may see the blessing and not the famine

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of the most high sovereign God, there is nothing like being a servant of the Lord. Some of the ways that I serve the Lord is this blog, but also the Journey In Praise Blog and Broadcast on periscope @WilhelminaLundy is the handle and if you don’t have periscope you can find me on FaceBook or YouTube @JourneyInPraise this is where I share the lessons that I may have learned while writing the blog, reading the word, or reading a book, maybe even a dream. What ever it is , it came from God. okay let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel Chapter 5

verse 1-4

The Lord tells Ezekiel to take a sharp sword, use it as a barber’s blade and shave his head and beard. He then says to Ezekiel, to take a set of scales and divide up the hair. When the day of the siege comes to an end, burn a third of the hair with fire in the city, and scatter a third to the wind. the Lord says that he will pursue them with drawn swords. He tells Ezekiel to take a few strands of hair and tuck them away in his garment, and take a few and throw them in to the fire and burn them up, the Lord says a fire will spread from there to the whole house of Israel.

my, my,my this has me wondering what next, The shaving of the head and beard is what was done at the end of a vow. Let’s move on.

verse 5-12

This is what the Sovereign said  This is Jerusalem which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her, yet in her wickedness she has rebelled against my laws and decrees more than the countries around her. she has rejected my laws and not followed my decrees. this is the message Ezekiel is to give to Israel.

The Lord says I myself is against you Jerusalem, and I will inflect punishment on you insight of the nations. Because of all your Idols, I will do to you what I have never done before and will never do again. Therefor in your midst fathers will eat there children and children will eat their fathers. I will inflict punishment on you and scatter your survivors to the winds. As surely as I live declares the Lord because you have defiled my sanctuary with all your vile images and detestable practices, I myself will withdraw my favor; I will not look on you with pity or spare you. A third of your people will die of plague or perish by famine inside; a third will fall by the sword outside your walls; and a third I will scatter to the winds and pursue with drawn sword

I went back to Ezekiel 5:2:4 remember when he told Ezekiel to burn the hair the same amount of hair and the same things done the hair represented the people of Israel . lets keep going.

verse 13-17

Then my anger will cease and my wrath against them will subside, and I will be avenged. And when I have spent my wrath against them they will know that I the Lord have spoken in my zeal.

I will make you a ruin and a reproach among nations around you, in the sight of all who pass by.you will be a reproach and a taunt, a warning and an object of horror

The Lords word continues to  discribe that he will do to Israel I encourage you to read this chapter in the spirit . this chapter has made me appreciate that the punishment for Israel would be the first but most important the last. when I look at society now and how things are Idolized I am realizing that we are lucky that the Lord is not a man that he should lie. Because I’m sure he is P.O not very happy.

Now for the Important part, If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and Confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Enjoy a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign Lord God Bless you

You can find me on periscope Monday, Wednesday, and Friday @WilhelminaLundy and that is the Journey In Praise broadcast if you don’t have periscope you can catch the broadcast on YouTube or the Facebook page @journeyinpraise. Okay enough of the intro let’s get in to the word.

Ezekiel Chapther 4

verse 1-8

The Lord says to Ezekiel to take a clay tablet and draw Jerusalem on it. the Lord then tells him to build a ramp up to it, set up camps against it and put battering rams around it. He then tells him to take an iron pan, and place it as an iron wall between you and the city to  turn his face toward it. the Lord tells Ezekiel that Jerusalem will be under siege and he shall besiege it (forces them to surrender) . He then tells Ezekiel that this will be a sign to Israel.

The Lord then tells Ezekiel to lie down on his left side, and take on the sin of Israel. the Lord tells Ezekiel that he was to bear sin  for the number of days that he was on his side. He says to Ezekiel I have assigned you the same number of days as the years of their sin. Ezekiel would be on his side and bear their sin for 390days. The Lord tells Ezekiel after the 390days is over then your going to lay on your right side, and bear the sin of the house of Judah, the Lord tells him that he is assigned 40days a day for each year. The Lord tells him to turn his face toward Jerusalem and with bared arm prophesy against her. The Lord tells him  that he will tie him up with ropes so that he can’t turn from side to side until he has finished the days of his siege.

As we begin the next stage of our assignments God puts us in the place to know exactly what we need to know had Ezekiel not laid on his side for the days of their years of sin he would not be able to understand what God wanted him to speak on. The Lord says to Ezekiel I will tie you with ropes so that you won’t change sides. The Lord will assist us to do the things that we need to he will keep us so that we can walk right when he has an assignment on our life.

verse 9-17

The Lord gave Ezekiel certain grain and beans to eat for the days that he laid on his sides he told Ezekiel to make bread out of them and that would be what he ate for the 390 days on his side.The Lord told him to weigh out 20 shekels of food to eat each day, and to eat them at a set time. He also tells Ezekiel to measure out a sixth of 5.5 quarts of water and drink each day at a set time. The Lord tells Ezekiel to eat the food as he would a barley cake; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement (waste) for fuel. The Lord says in this way the people , of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them.

Then Ezekiel said, not so,Sovereign Lord! I have never defiled myself. From my youth until now I have never eaten anything found dead or torn by wild animals. No unclean meat has ever entered my mouth.

The Lord says to him Very well then I will let you bake your bread over cow manure instead of human excrement. The Lord says to Ezekiel Son of man, I will cut off the food supply in Jerusalem. The people, will eat rationed food in anxiety and drink rationed water in despair, for food and water will be scarce. They will be appalled at the sight of each other and will waste away because of their sin.

Do you remember when I said that the Lord, takes us through things so that we can teach and show others. Sometimes the Lord will put us through things,so that we can bring people back from that thing. In this chapter Ezekiel tells us that the Lord had him lay on his side a day for each year of sin. 390 days that had to be painful, I’m sure as painful as the sin of those 390 years. Then the Lord had Ezekiel go through eating differently to prepare for the day when he cuts of the food supply. Working for the Lord, isn’t always easy but God always has a reason and he builds us up for understand and being able to relate to the people that he will send us to. That’s why our struggles are our lessons. There’s a blessings in every lesson.

Now for the Important part if you are looking for salvation,  google, or download the free bible app or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. Get in to the word and Enjoy a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign God

Ezekiel Chapter 3

verse 1-9

Ezekiel is continuing from chapter 2 (scroll down to 10/21 post). Ezekiel says God says son of man eat this scroll, then go speak to the house of Israel. Ezekiel opens his mouth and the Almighty feeds him the scroll, the Lord tells him to eat the scroll and fill his stomach with it. Ezekiel ate the scroll and says it taste as sweet as honey.

Ezekiel says then God says Son of man go to the house of Israel and speak my words to them. he says God says to him you are not being sent to a people of obscured (unknown) speech, and difficult language, but to the house os Israel. Not to many people of obscured speech, and diffcult language, whose words you cannot understand. the Lord says Surely if I had sent you to them,they would have listened to you. But the house of Israel are not willing to listen to you, because they are not willing to listen to me. The Lord says to Ezekiel that the whole house of Israel is harden, and obstinate ( stubborn refusing to change your opinion)  but I will make you unyielding and as harden as they are. I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than flint. he says do not be afraid of them, or terrified by them though they are a rebellious house.

Praise God! did ya’ll read that, The Lord said go ahead and eat these words, and fill up with what I need you to tell them. In other words digest, nurture, chew and swallow. you know it’s like when you eat, and your body takes in the vitamins that it needs to survive. That’s how we need to eat the words of the Lord, that it becomes apart of us. Praise God! He says go on ahead, to the house of Israel, and I’m going to make you hard  like them. The Lord will make it so that you won’t change your words, or back down. He won’t send us any where, without the strength to deal with who we have to deal with. We just can’t be fearful or terrified of who they are, or what they say out their mouths. once we are fearful, where does our faith go. ( I’m just gonna, leave that right there.) 

verse 10-15

Ezekiel says that the Lord says to him, Son of man  listen carefully, and take these words to heart. Go now to the countrymen in exile, and speak to them. Tell them this is what the sovereign Lord says whether they chose to listen or not.

Ezekiel says then the spirit lifted him up, and he heard behind him a loud rumbling sound, It was the sound of the beings wings rubbing together, and the sound of the wheels beside them, a loud rumbling. Ezekiel says then the spirit lifted him up, and took him, and his spirit was bitter and angry, with the strong hand of the Lord upon him.

Ezekiel begins to tell us about the exiles, he sat among the ones who lived at the Tel abib near the kebar River. he sat with them for seven days overwhelmed.

when Ezekiel speaks of feeling bitter and angry it’s because he felt the sin, and attitudes of the exile his spirit was overwhelmed and he need to just pray and digest the words from God and the assignment at hand. Sometimes are assignments can scare us. Lets remember Jesus in the Gethsemane garden, Jesus prayed; my father, if it’s possible, may this cup be taken from me, not my will, but your will be done. (If it’s your will) Hallelujah! Jesus had a moment. After realizing what was ahead of him Ezekiel Had moment hallelujah, My God from Zion.

verse 16-19

warning to Israel

Ezekiel says at the end of the seven days the Lord came to him, he tells him that he has made him the watchman for Israel, The lord tells him to hear his words and speak and give them warning for him. The Lord says to Ezekiel when I say tell the wicked man that he will die for his sin, and you don’t tell him , his blood is on your hands. The Lord also says, If you give him the warning, and he doesn’t listen, he will die of sin, but you will be saved.

Jesus! the Lord is saying if we don’t do what we are told then comes the consequences. If I don’t write the blog then someone misses the message. If my walk it out sister Tiffany, doesn’t take her assignment serious someone will miss prayer, and the word that God gives her. If who ever doesn’t follow the warning, he will die for his sin. I’m not going to touch on accountability. What I will say is,  if we are not obedient, then we will start to feel conviction. 

verse 20-23

The Lord says that if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and the He sends a warning or a block and they take it, they will die. The Lord tells Ezekiel since you did not warn him, he will die for his sin. The righteous things that the wicked man did , will not be remembered and the Lord says to Ezekiel he will be held accountable for his blood. The Lord says to Ezekiel If you do warn the wicked man and he listens then he will live, and you will have saved yourself.

Ezekiel says the hand of the Lord was on him there,he told Ezekiel to get up and go out to the plain, and he will speak to him. Ezekiel says he got up and went to plain and the Glory of the Lord was standing there, and he fell to his face.

The Lord had to explain to Ezekiel how serious his assignment was. You can’t just sit on it we have to take heed to our assignment, not to sit on it. when you are on assignment to serve, a soul is at risk and the Heavenly father gives you the assignment to speak his words so that there hearts can open toward the Lord. it’s our job to obey and open our mouths after that, It’s up to them. but if we don’t say anything then we are not obedient.

verse 24-27 this is what the

The Lord tells Ezekiel to go into his house, and shut himself inside, he tells him, you will be tied with ropes so that you can not go out among the people. The Lord tells him I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth, so that you will be silent, and unable to rebuke them, they are a rebellious house. The Lord says to Ezekiel when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them this is what the sovereign Lord says, who ever listen , let him listen, and whoever refuse let them refuse; for they are a rebellious house.

Glory to God! he says they will tie you with ropes, have you against the wall, and the Lord will keep your mouth shut up untill the time that comes for you to speak. When you speak the word and the will of God some will listen and some won’t because this is a rebellious house. No matter where he sends us to speak 

Now for the Important part, If you are looking for salvation google, download the free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 and confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Enjoy a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign God.

God Bless You!

Ezekiel Chapter 2

verse 1-8

Ezekiel’s call

He said “Son of man, stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” As he spoke the spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard  him speaking to me. He said: “Son of man, I am standing you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their fathers have been in revolt (rise up) against me to this very day. the spirit said the people who I am sending to you are stubborn and refusing to change. Say to them, this is what the  Sovereign Lord says. and whether they listen or not they will know that a prophet of the Lord was among them. And you son of man don’t be afraid of them or what comes pout their mouth. Do not be afraid , though briers and thorns are all around you and live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or terrified by them, they are a rebellious house. you must speak my words to them whether they listen or not, because they are rebellious. but you listen my son Do not rebel like that rebellious house; open your  mouthe and eat what I give you.

Glory to God! hallelujah, The Lord tells Elijah that he will send him to a place that is full of rebellious people, people who are running around doing things that are not of God. Robbing , stealing, cussing, and allowing themselves to do all things that leads to emptiness. He says don’t be afraid son of man, and don’t allow them to scare you. You tell them what I have to say whether they listen or not. open your mouth and eat what I give you. Hallelujah! God will send you some where and you may be afraid, you may be confused, the people may even not willing to listen. But the Lord says, speak his words any way. Hallelujah! They will hear, just speak his words, Glory to God. It reminds me ,of when I started  this blog, and I said to the Lord; Lord who’s going to read this, and he said just write. I start the blog every day asking the Lord to speak through me, use me to teach and show his children, to uplift and enlighten my people, and even when I think that some one might not want to know, God has someone waiting for the word.

verse 9,10

Ezekiel says he looked and say a hand with a scroll in it reaching out to him, the Lord unrolled the scroll in front of him on both sides were written words of lament, mourning, and woe (all these words mean grief and sorrow)

Glory to God! I tell you my people if the Lord tells you that you can do something, trust and believe. We have learned from Job, that he has already put it in us. We have learned from Esther, and Daniel that we need to fast, and pray because he has already cleared the way. He has already satisfied the hunger of the lion in the den. Glory to God. Hallelujah!!!!
