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

Isaiah Chapter 27

Deliverance of Israel

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

Glory be to God, If you have no desire to perish (spiritually) or be exiled and you want to get build a relationship with Our savior Jesus Christ, turn your bible, google or download the youversion free bible app to Romans 10:9, Decree with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, and you shall be saved. Find a bible-based church, place yourself among like-minded people and begin a healthy prayer life. Allow the Lord to come in refresh, renew and restore your spirit

Isaiah Chapter 26

A song of Praise

This chapter is a song that will be sung in the land of Judah,

The song starts of speaking of a strong city whose Salvation is like a defensive wall, The gates open to righteous people, that live by faith.

The Lord will give them peace because the trust in Him. The trust in the Lord forever because He is the Rock of eternity.

The Lord humbles those that want to be higher than others, he is going to bring them low to the ground, and the feet of the oppressed and poor trample it down.

Jesus (the upright one) makes the way of the righteous smooth, we wait for Him and your name the son of God (Renown.

The song continues my soul yearns for you morning and night, when your judgement comes upon the Earth.

The Lords hand are lifted on High, may the people see the Lords Zeal foe his people, and be put to shame. Lord you provide peace for us and all that we have accomplished has been done through you.

We honor your name only,

The Lord has enlarged the nations.

The song ends hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.  The Lord has come from his dwelling to punish the people of the Earth for their sins.

First let me remind you that you should be reading your bible with this blog, I paraphrase. So, It’s just snippets from the word, sometimes more than others. Okay Verses 1-4 is how we as believers should be living our lives. The salvation of God should be covering us like a defensive wall; if our souls was a castle than our salvation will not let anyone in, they should not be able to break that rampart down. That’s why we don’t come down from reading our word, prayer or worship it’s like taking the wall down.

Those who think that they are better than the less fortunate will be brought down to humbleness, the word says they will be low as the ground and the poor and oppressed will trample them. Jesus will make the path smooth for the righteous. The Lord gives us peace and, in the day, when He returns the word tells His righteous ones to hide during the time that the Lord is punishing the sinners, until it’s time to come out.

Amen

For the ones that are reading this blog trying to find a way to be in the presence of God, to be filled with peace and love, but do not know, how? Turn your bible, download the youversion bible app, or google, Romans 10:9, Decree with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raise him from the dead, you shall be saved. Find yourself a bible- based church and begin word study, you can start here with us, fellowship with like- minded people and begin building your foundation on faith.

Enjoy Your Journey In Praise!

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. Find a bible-based church, get yourself into daily bible study, you can start right here with us, and begin fellowship with like minded people. Blessing and the peace of God, remember

Enjoy Your Journey in Praise!

Isaiah Chapter 24

logo_2042734_web

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are doing well in your day, I pray that you all are in praise to God, that he saw fit for us to walk in another day. It’s good to be in praise but our praise becomes authentic when we know why we are in praise. A genuine praise opens the room for the spirit of God.

Isaiah Chapter 24

The Lords devastation of the Earth

The prophet Isaiah starts by saying the Lord is going to turn the Earth to waste. The word says that the Earth will be plundered. The Lord says that the Earth has been defiled by it’s people ( I’m side eyeing, as I’m thinking about what is going on now ) 😒

The word says that they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statues and broken the everlasting covenant, it’s people must bear it’s guilt.

It goes on to say; all joy turns to gloom, it follows with all joyful sounds are banished from the Earth (v11)

Isaiah says the people are all happy and singing ” Glory to the righteous one” but  he sees the unseen and they will fall. the Earth will shake and the people of the Earth will fall in a pit, those that climb out will be trapped. The Prophet says the moon will be dismayed  (confused) the sun ashamed (hide) In the brackets is the words the Holy spirit gave me while reading this word.

The Chapter ends with “For the Lord almighty will reign on mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before it’s elders- with great Glory.

Can I say that this Chapter had me in my feelings. First it took me awhile to glean from this chapter. usually I will read and the holy spirit will jump right in and teach me. But In the beginning of the year I had a dream involving the ground opening up and fire falling from the sky and landing on me but I did not get burned, my family and I actually got out of the town safely To God be the Glory. that dream kept interrupting my lesson.

I believe we all quietly worry about the end of the Earth and pray that we are doing all that we need to do, before Jesus comes back, it almost makes me want to be like Abraham and say Lord if their are 10 good people will you save the Earth.

This prophecy is why servants are so important, we want to be able to saturate the Earth with praise to heaven. There is so much hate self hate; lack of humanity; selfishness that I believe the Father is in heaven SMH’n ( you know what I mean).

What I ask you to take away from this chapter is give God praise, help someone find there self on the remnant side of this battle, help your neighbor make praise a habit. No we can’t change the Prophecy God is not a man that He should lie, but he is coming back for the church, so when you look to the left or to right, try to help the person you see prepare themselves for that Journey.

Blessing If you would like to start your relationship with Our Lord and Savior, do me a favor, turn your bible, download the youversion bible app, or google; Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe with your heart that God raised him from the dead you shall be saved. Get yourself in a bible based church,  start your word study, and find yourself a group of like minded individuals to fellowship and begin to build your foundation on Faith!

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 19

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpgcropped-logo_2042734_web.jpglogo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

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

Isaiah chapter 19

Verses `1- 17

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

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

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

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

Verse 18- 25

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 18

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpgcropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that as you are moving forward the Lord is cutting off the people that are moving against your journey and service. Be still and know that we serve a God that will clear the way, and remove all things that will try to distract or stop what he ordained for his people.

Let’s get into the word of God!

Isaiah Chapter 18

A Prophecy Against Cush

Verse 1-7

These verses the Prophet Isaiah tells Gods people that, there will be a time that God will be quiet and he will be cutting off the nations that are gathering against His people.

Gods people will hear the trumpets blow , and the banner will be lifted on the mountain.

The prophet speaks of a people that will see the power of God and bring gifts to Mount Zion.

We are always pushing pass the pressure to get to our purpose and as we are growing there are people that are around us trying to stop our growth and trying to destroy the beauty that God is nurturing in us. 

God will sit quiet and watch. some of us get scared when God gets quiet, don’t ! He is watching and pruning in his Garden. Getting ready for the Harvest.

I hear God saying the seed has been planted, all we need to do is Grow.

 

Blessing If you are in need of Jesus in your life and you want to the Father to come in and do amazing things through you, turn your bible, google or download the free youversion bible app to Romans 10:9 Decree with your mouth That Jesus is Lord  and believe in your heart that God raised

 

him from the dead you shall be saved.

Get yourself into a bible based church, build a relationship with Him  through word study and surround yourself with like minded people and enjoy your journey in praise.

Isaiah Chapter 10

Blessings everyone,

I Pray that you, all stand firm and unmovable from the Glory of God.

where have I been??? I have had a month break from writing the blog and just have been walking in my testimony. It’s important to take the time to just watch God move and shift barriers.

I also had the opportunity to be able to sit and listen to the changes that the Lord is doing with the F.S.T.S ( From Sinner To Saint) Blogs.

If you have been following F.S.T.S then you know that I would break down verse to verse. Well the Lord has shifted me to a new way. I pray that you all get discernment the same way as when it was paraphrased.

To the followers thanks for your support, likes and comments. If you were scrolling and happen to come across this blog welcome and thanks for joining in. Let me introduce myself!

Chapter 10

reflections of verse 1-4

Isaiah has the tough job of trying to let the house of Israel know that god is not happy with them. the first verse starts off with “woe to those who make unjust laws.”

We are reminded in this word  by God that if we are more concerned with making life harder for someone else the we better be ready for sorrow (woe).

when disaster comes who will we run to?  All that we have collected and have fatten up on and walked in riches in, now has caused an avalanche and is in danger of being in ruins.

who will we call, when we have fallen under our capture?

I find my self  doing a spiritual check, at times we may not even notice that out of anger or hurt we may wish a persons life to be worst off than ours, we may decree a hardship over there lives, or have the solution to their problem, and won’t budget to help.

these things are human flesh reactions to everyday situations. In these verses we learn that every action has a reaction, every sin has a consequence. The question is who will we expect to help us?

As I was writing, my spirit reminded me of the saying “you can’t sit on the fence” We can not sit on the fence when it comes to God. We can’t be decreeing and declaring the word of God over our lives, and then speaking the acts of Satan over  someone else’s life. What we speak will come back to us.

 

Verse 5-19

This study is so important in this day. we are so busy  moving in gloat and pride about what we accomplished. We think that we are the reason for all things in our lives that we should be glorified for our achievement.

We give God the Glory, .for all things concerning us. We do this because we couldn’t do a thing without Him. But their are some who will try to get the Glory.

We learn in these verses that God uses Assyria against Israel to take all things and run through their streets and trample anything that’s worth something.

Assyria wasn’t doing these things for God just their selfish reasons and even after the Lord was then ready to punish the Assyrian king for his arrogant heart.

We see two sides, we see a people who want to make, or assist the poor to be worse off then what they are. And then we have the side where the vindictive people fall to arrogant people, none of God.

The two sections that I covered was based on how we treat others and God’s Glory, we walk in these tests everyday.

Obedience in treating our neighbors good and giving God the Glory is how  we live righteously. Knowing that God is the one that we call when we need help and our life is in ruin. The knowledge that what we put out there is what we will get back.

verse 20-34

In a  group of unbelief, there is belief. The remnant, the few left over after God has destroyed. The few that walk by faith and rely on God for their everything.

Remnant is the few remaining out of a group of many. Through Isaiah God says the remnant will not have to worry, this is only for a little while.

It’s like the aftermath of a storm, the clean up crew.

In this chapter….

We find three things to add to our faith journey

  1. We can not look and speak on the down fall of our neighbors, we must help our neighbors and pray for them. when we see them in, a time of hardship, we must speak life into there spirit, and rebuke death.
  2. Give God the Glory, we can not do anything by our own mite, but only by the power of God, for His Glory.
  3. If you walk in 1 and 2 be ready to be the remnant. After the smoke clears, God says he’s going to take care of everything else, don’t worry that part is over!

Blessings if you are reading this blog and want to begin your walk with God and build a relationship with Him, google, download the free bible app, or open your bible to Romans 10:9 

Lord God Thank you for your blood and your company, I believe in my heart that you are Lord and was brought back to life on the third day, Purify my mind and heart and make me knew. Thank you Lord for saving me from death in Jesus name

Amen

Isaiah Chapter 9

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

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

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

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

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

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, I serve the Lord by writing this new-journey-in-praise-flyerblog and founding Journey in Praise Ministries, this is where you can catch the broadcast Mon, Wed, Fri at 9pm. I also serve as the lead intercessor for the From Sinner to Saint Prayer Wall. If you would like to be added you can email me at fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com. Okay lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 9

verse 1- 7

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

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

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

 

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

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

Verse 8-17

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verse 18-21

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jesus was sent just for this reason

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

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

Isaiah Chapter 8

logo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

I pray that you all are walking in obedience, and making sure that you have your ears to Gods lips. As I was finishing up this chapter I meditated on how can I make sure that I give God the Glory in all things concerning me, that includes trials and tribulations, rocket fire and waits.

When we pray for God to come in and hand our enemies to us, kick down doors that we though were cemented we must be ready to welcome God in to our environment. This chapter was a sneak peak of what happens when God turns his back on us and treats us as we treat Him.

Lets get into the word!

Isaiah Chapter 8

Verse 1-10 Isaiah and his children as signs

These verses tell us that the Lord told Isaiah to take a scroll and write on it  with a regular pen Maher – Shalal- Hash- Baz (Quick to plunder, swift to the spoil) and so Isaiah called on the witnesses  of the priest Uriah, and Zachariah son of Jerberchiah. Isaiah said that then he made love to his wife the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son and the Lord told Isaiah to name him Maher -Shalal-Hash-Baz. Isaiah says that the Lord said before the boy knew how to call out for his parents the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.

The Lord spoke to Isaiah again telling him that because the people rejected his presence and rejoiced over the fall of Rezin and the son of Ramaliah, the Lord is about to bring on them a mighty floodwaters of the river.

The king of Assyria and all his army will overflow through the towns and cities and fill up the land.The word goes on to say that the Lord tells Isaiah to tell the people, they will be shattered into pieces. Listen for countries, prepare yourself but you will be broken. Make plans, but it wont come to anything, speak your plans, but it won’t come to nothing, because God is with us.

 

These verses show us how powerful God is when we turn our backs to him. When we do not follow instructions and when the Lord decides to confirm his word. When we apply this word to our lives it starts with our faith.

The Lord will confirm his word. In Chapter 7 the Lord says that Rezin, Syria and the son of Ramaliah would not get their way. even though the prophecy was confirmed the people still turned their backs on God rejoicing the fall but not giving God the Glory.

We can not pray and beg God to deliver us and then when he shows up not bother to give Him the praise and the Glory for taking care of us.  We learn in this chapter that something bigger than what we first feared will be the end result. No matter what you plan to get out of it, your still going to feel it.

We must give God the Glory when He comes through in your life. We should be on a “As for me and my household” Level with our praise.

verse 11-22

The word says that the Lord spoke to Isaiah with a strong hand (seriousness) that he (Isaiah) should not walk in the ways of the people. not to say conspiracy concerning all things the call a conspiracy, nor should he be afraid of their threats, nor trouble. you should Hallow in him, lets Him be your fear, let Him be your dread. He will be a stone of stumbling, a rock to trip on, to both the houses of Israel. A trap and snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and many among them shall stumble over them then they will fall and be broken and even be cornered and trapped.

Bind up the testimonies and seal the law. (here’s your ark) among my disciples and I will wait on the Lord who hides his face from the house of Jacob and I will look for him.

Isaiah says listen carefully “Here am I and the children the Lord gave to me. we are signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts who dwells in mount Zion.”

And when they say to you seek those who are mediums and wizards,  who whispers and mutters, should not a people seek their God? Should the seek the dead on behalf of the living? Direct them to the testimonies and the law. If they do not speak according to this word, that is because there is no light in them.

Those that seek any one other than God will go through life deeply distressed and hungry (empty) and they will become enraged and curse their king and their God as they look upward, and they will only see darkness and distress. When they look at the earth, and they will be driven away in darkness and overwhelming night.

We are placed in some difficult surrounding around people that have zero light. If we are not careful their speech can easily become our speech. As believers we must focus only on following the word of God and listen only to those who walk with the light of God in them.

When we are not filed by the glory of God, we are walking around anxious and hungry, frustrated and tired, that position will place you in darkness.

If you find yourself listening and following the ways of the “they’s” you will find yourself empty and hungry, because you are looking for answers to life from the dead,

 

Hey! If you want to be in the light and get your answers from the one true living God turn your bible, download the free bible app or google Romans 10:9

Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead, you shall be Saved.

Start your relationship with God by reading this chapter in your bible and let the Lord tell you what you need to know. get your self into a sound doctrine bible based church and begin your fellowship with followers of Christ Jesus

Be Blessed

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.

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
