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.

Matthew Chapter 1

Verses 1- 17 tells us how Jesus comes from the bloodline of Abraham and David.

Verse 18 – 24

The word tells us that Marry was set to marry Joesph. Before they came together as husband and wife, she had became pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Joseph a righteous man had decided to divorce Mary quietly.

An angel had come to him in his dreams and told him who Mary was preparing to birth and whay he would do. People Will call the child Immanuel God with us.

The word says when Joseph woke up he did what the angel said, he and Mary wouldn’t become on flesh until after she gave birth.

This is a short chapter but it speaks volumes on faith. It was Joseph’s faith that allowed him to be obedient had he not been obedient, Mary’s life would have went left and the rearing of Jesus would have been very different.

When we have faith in the word of God, their will be difficulty and shifts in your plans. Having faith in the end result is when we rest on God

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

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

logo_2042734_web

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.

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 17 The eagles and a vine

verse 1-6

The Lord to Ezekiel to make a picture and tell the house of Israel a parable. The Lord wanted Ezekiel to tell them about an eagle with powerful wings came to Lebanon. He took off the top of a cedar and carried it to a land of merchants, and planted in a city of traders. He took some of the seeds of their land and planted it in fertile soil where there was a lot of water. It became a low spreading vine which produced branches with leafs on them.

The study bible and the amplified bible says that the eagle here represents Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. Sometimes when we are about to go through something or going through something God will let what we think our worst fear come in and take over. yet it’s our set up for our come up if we just be still.

verse 7 – 10

The Lord tells Ezekiel to say but there was another great Eagle, and the vine sent out his roots toward him for water, from where it was plotted. the vine had already been planted in good soil around a lot of water so that it can produce good fruit and become a splendid vine. The Lord tells Ezekiel to say to them Will the vine thrive? Will it not be uprooted and stripped of its fruit so that it withers? All of its new growth will wither, when the east wind blows ( Hot dry wind blowing off of the desert).

this parable reminds me sometimes we may not be in the place that we want to be but we will be in the place that we will learn the most. trying to find water somewhere else and we are surrounded be water that we think isn’t good enough. let’s move on

verse 11 -15

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel and says to Ezekiel ask them if they still don’t know what these things mean?He says that the King of Babylon went to Jerusalem and carried off her king and nobles, he took a member of the royal family and made a treaty with him, putting him under oath. He also carried away the leading men of the land, so that the kingdom would be brought low, unable to rise again, surviving only by keeping his treaty. But the king rebelled against him by sending his envoys to Egypt to get horses and a large army. will he succeed? will he who does such things escape? Will he break the treaty and yet escape?

To answer the Lords questions we learn from the vine that he will wither from the blow of the east wind. It makes me think of the saying your word is your bond. know matter what you don’t like about the circumstances if you make an agreement them you stay true to your word. all a man as is his word it describes his character. 

verse 16- 24

The Lord says as surely as he lives, he shall die. In the land of the king who put him on the thrones whose oath he despised and whose treaty he broke. The Lord has Ezekiel tell the house of Israel that Zedekiah ( the member of the royal family that Nebuchadnezzar put on the throne)  will die because he did not keep his word he despised the oath by breaking the covenant. He gave his hand in a pledge, he made an agreement, and the Lord says he shall not escape. The says that he will bring his oath on the head of Zedekiah and he will be caught in the Lords net.The Lord says he will bring him to Babylon and execute judgment  upon him, the sword and the survivors will be scattered to the wind. At the end of this chapter the Lord says that he will break off the top of a cedar and plant it at the top of the mountain and it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar birds of every kind will nest in it, they will find shelter in the shade of its branches.

If you remember in chapter 16 yesterday we learned that the Lord said that Jerusalem lovers will tear her apart and he will let them so trying to plot against Nebuchadnezzar was going against the Lords convent. What he said would happen to Jerusalem God is not a man that he shall lie. The end of the chapter’s parable was God letting Israel know that Jesus will be coming and he will be the everlasting covenant between God and Jerusalem.

Praise God! Thank you for joining in to the bible study. 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 heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved.Began a wonderful relationship with the Sovereign God and allow him to do great things in your life.

Ezekiel Chapter 16

Lets get in to the word.

Ezekiel chapter 16 An allegory of unfaithful Jerusalem ( a story of an unfaithful Jerusalem)

verse 1-5

The Lord tells Ezekiel to confront Jerusalem with their detestable practices and say. On the day that you were born no one looked at you with pity, no one washed you they put you in the fields. On the day you were born you were despised. The word tell us that Ezekiel was talking to the people who were born in the land of the Canaanites; their fathers were Amorite and their mothers were Hittites.

When reading this we would say that’s harsh.  but that’s how we come to God, lost and know where to turn. The Lord is talking to Jerusalem a place that was now full of people worshipping Idols.

Verse 6 -14

Ezekiel tells Jerusalem that the sovereign says; that he saw her as an infant laying in her own blood and he told her to live!  She grew like a plant becoming a beautiful jewel. The Lord says when he passed by and he saw that she was ready for love he took the corners of his garment and covered her nakedness. Putting gold earrings, bracelets and necklaces, becoming very pretty and rose to be queen. Her fame spread among the nations on account of her beauty because the splendor the Lord had given her made her beauty perfect.

The Lord puts his everything in us; Philippians 1:6 says, he completes a good work that he began. so when he is completing a good work he is building us with a solid foundation making us beautiful. When we are beautiful from the Lords work some may get a lot of attention because their glowing from his splendor. What you do at this point is the important part.

verse 15 – 29

The Lord says; but then she used her beauty and fame to become a prostitute. willing to  share yourself with anyone who came pass. giving your beauty to him and not God. She also took the fine jewelry he gave he and idols and engaged in prostitution with them. everything that I gave you, you gave to them (idols) You took the children that you bore to me and sacrificed to them as food. the Lord says was your prostitution not enough? you slaughter my children and sacrificed them. The Lord says you forgot when you were a youth and was kicking around in your blood.

The Lord tells Jerusalem that you then built shrines and was promiscuous with others that passed by. and so I stretched my hand against you and reduced your territory. I gave you over to the greed of your enemies, the daughters of the Pallistines, who were shocked by your lewd conduct. The Lord says that Jerusalem was greed and not satisfied and continued to allow different nations to come in and worship their idols.

Just like Jerusalem we Know that God has set us on high but we will tend to put other things in front of his. we will do anything to get what we want and need and move the lord to the side. Jerusalem was made beautiful and then forgot where her loyalty lay. she was ready to bring in people who caused the death of the Israelites that worshiped God. hurt he says you slaughtered my children. lets continue

Verse 30 – 48

In these verses Ezekiel tells Jerusalem that the Lord says that he will strip her in front of the lovers that she loved and the lovers that she hated and allow them to tear her apart. He says that he will put a stop to prostitution and she will no longer pay for her lovers. The Lord tells Ezekiel to remind Jerusalem that she didn’t remember the days of her youth.

The Lord then tells Ezekiel to say to Jerusalem like mother like daughter. like your mother you despise your husband and children. We learn that Jerusalem mother is Hittite, father Amorite, older sister Samaria and younger sister Sodom.

In these verses I can feel the Lords hurt. feeling betrayed by someone you love. He watched Jerusalem grow. He breathed life into her only to watch her betray him. Not keeping a relationship. In our walk with God and as we build an intimate relationship with him this is something we need to keep in mind. Not to hurt him again, but grow in our relationship. Not to prostitute ourselves to the things we want but to only have eyes for the Lord. Gory to God!

verses 49 – 63

In these Verse the Lord delivers the message to Jerusalem that he will restore what he has taken away from her and her sisters but she will be ashamed of herself every time she thinks about it, every time she opens her mouth. He tells Jerusalem that she has done worst then her sister Sodom who did not help the poor and needy, he says that Jerusalem has made her sisters seem righteous.

Again we are grateful for Jesus who has died for our sins. When we think about the Lords anger we can’t help but notice the passion and love. The pain of being betrayed. as we walk in our relationship with the Lord  it’s important to think bout this chapter. God wants to make us beautiful but not for others for himself. So as God is doing a good work in you don’t be led astray don’t make him jealous. God Bless You guys

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 God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. get in to the word and began your relationship with the Sovereign Lord and allow him to do a God work in you. God Bless you!

Ezekiel Chapter 14 Idolaters condemned

verse 1-6

Ezekiel says that some of the elders of Israel came to him and sat down in front of him. Then the word of the Lord came to him and says “Son of man, these men have set up Idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all? Therefore speak to them and tell them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: when any Israelite sets up idols in his heart, and puts a wicked stumbling block before his face and then goes to a prophet, I the Lord will answer him myself in keeping with his  great idolatry. I will do this to recapture the hearts of the people of Israel, who have all deserted me for their idols.Therefor say to the house of Israel, This is what the sovereign Lord says: repent! Turn from your idols and renounce all your detestable practices!

For those that go to Gods Prophet or servant after worshipping Idols and putting up stumbling blocks ( circumstances that may keep you from God) the Lord says he will answer them himself  so that he may recapture the hearts of those who turn from him. for his name sake. The Lord will forgive us and change our hearts help us fight those things that keep us from him if we repent of our sins. we serve a God who is faithful to us but most of all we serve a forgiving God who will not take back his words.

verse 7 – 11

The Lord says that when an Israelite or alien living in Israel separates himself from him and sets up Idols in his heart and puts circumstances between themselves and God and then goes to a prophet to inquire of him. The Lord says: I the Lord will answer him myself I will set my face against that man and make an example and a byword . I will cut him off from my people. Then you will know that I am Lord. And If the prophet is enticed to utter a prophecy, I the Lord have  enticed that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand against him and destroy him from among my people Israel. They will bear their guilt – the prophet will be as guilty as the one who consults him. Then the people of Israel will no longer stray from me, nor will  they defile themselves anymore with their sins. they will be my people, and I will be their God, declares the sovereign Lord.

When we are not walking right and we are self proclaiming ourselves as prophets that act won’t go unnoticed by God. The Lord will call you out you will prophecy your imagination and not what the Sovereign Lord has said and he will stretch his hand out against you. The Lord will stop you from putting  a stumbling block between him and his people Glory to god. Thank you Lord, Glorryyyy. I thank my Lord God for Loving us so much that he will stop anyone who thinks that the can block us from him. won’t he do it!

verse 12-20

Judgment Inescapable

The word of the Lord came to Ezekiel: He said son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut of its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, even if these three men Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one could pass through it because of the beasts, as surely as I live , declares the sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.

Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, Let the sword pass throughout the land, and I kill its men and their animals, as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.

Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and their animals. as surely as I live, declares the sovereign Lord, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. they would save only themselves by their righteousness.

These verses are powerful. only you are responsible for your salvation. your walk only can save you, your relationship with God can save you only. just as we are born in our individual bodies one soul one body one salvation, one relationship. I encourage you to get in to the word, begin the relationship walk in your purpose with confidence that God will walk with you Hallelujah!!!!!

verse 21 – 23

Ezekiel says that this is what the Lord said to him: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgements – sword and famine and wild beast and plague – to kill its men and their animals! Yet there will be some survivors – sons and daughters who will be brought out of it. They will come to you and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem – every disaster I have brought upon it. you will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause, declares the Sovereign Lord.

sometimes In our compassion we ask God why? why he does certain things ?  some say well if there is a God why does he allow certain things to happen? why is it that this group of people are going hungry? why are we at war? why are babies dying? here’s your answer Ezekiel 14:21 – 23 reminds us to look pass the horrible actions and look deeper in to the conduct and actions. The famine (Hunger), the plague (HIV, Cancer), the beast (Drugs, politicians) sword ( murders) before typing this I said Lord I don’t want people to get this misunderstood. so here’s how he gives it to me. just in the bible these things go on for generations and though our flesh does not understand its your spirit that seeks God that will give you understanding. we have plagues in a word where we have false prophets giving us a good word to gain a profit. we have Idolizing people are separating themselves from God, people are putting there wants in front of the Sovereign. I know what you’re saying what about those that suffer and know God. at the end of their suffering where are they going. If they know God they bare their cross and then go to the  kingdom. and some will survive and praise his name. Glory to God we have people who have survived cancer we have people going 20yrs HIV positive you have people walking around with a bullet in their head, we have people sober after 15yrs on drugs we have people being pulled out of Jail because the were wrongly accused Hallelujah! his word never changes.

Now for the Important part, If you are looking to begin your relationship with the sovereign it starts with your salvation. 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 you shall be saved. Get on your knees and talk to God allow him to fill your cracks with putty and wash you clean. Hallelujah! have an amazing day God bless you
