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 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 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.

It’s not your ministry, it’s Gods; it’s not your church, it’s God!

Blessings if you want to began a relationship with the Lord of host and you want to see what he can do in your life then turn your bible; download the free bible app; or google Romans 10:9 and If you say with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead than you will be Saved.

Get yourself into a bible based church, find a Holy Spirit filled group to fellowship with and let the Lord move and destroy all that is not of him and for your good.

Be Blessed

Matthew Chapter 9

logo_2042734_web

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are doing well, and nothing is standing in your way. When we are moving in the will of God. There will be things that comes up in your life to distract you. It sometimes and most of the times will be the things that once rocked your whole foundation. Don’t let it, remember that you came out on the other side of the problem well, and you will do it again.

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

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

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God, some of the ways that I serve new-journey-in-praise-flyeris as the founder of From Sinner to Saint Blog and prayer wall (If you have a request you can send an email to fromsinnertosaint103@gmail.com) I also serve as the founder of Journey in Praise Ministry http://www.journeyinpraise.wordpress.com . Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.

Matthew Chapter 9

Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man

Verse 1 – 8

The word says that Jesus went into his own tow, and there the men brought a man to him paralyzed. Jesus saw their faith, and told the man that his sins were forgiven the word says Take heart

The teachers of the law saw this and said to themselves “this man is blaspheming.” Because Jesus knows their thoughts, he asked them why they thought so evil. He asked them if it was easier your sins are forgiven, than get up and walk? Jesus says this so we would know that the son of man has authority on earth to forgive sins.

Jesus tells the paralyzed man to get up and take his mat and go home. The word says the man got up and went home. The people praised God, who had given men this authority.

In this teaching Jesus shows us that we have the power to command, we have the authority to forgive sin. We walk around with lack of self-worth with so much power inside of us. The paralyzed man is us stuck in our circumstances we can’t seem to me because we don’t think we have the power to move out of it.

God has given us authority on this earth, to go forward and prosper, but he has also given us the gift of free will, to walk or sit. The question is what are you going to do with your power?

 

Verse 9 – 13

Jesus Eats with Sinners at Matthews House

The word says when Jesus left from the paralyzed man he saw a man name Matthew who was sitting in the tax collector’s booth. Jesus told the man to follow him, and Matthew got up and followed him.

As Jesus was having dinner at Matthews house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples.

The word says when the Pharisees seen this they asked his disciples, why Jesus was eating with the tax collectors and the sinners?

It’s not the healthy that need a doctor, but the sick.

But go learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.

For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

This word blew my mind, let’s talk about the real. Yes, we seek fellowship and to be around like-minded individuals. Let me say this on this blog first, I am not here for the righteous but for the sinner. This scripture made me realize why the Lord named the blog from sinner to saint, it’s here for the those that are looking for God, to help those that know him but have not yet established a relationship, and for those that just want to be filled by him.

Praise God for placing us here to help each other. We cannot deny the sinner we are not better than them, we are to have mercy. I Jesus came and walked the way we should be walking then we were meant to not expect sacrifice, but desire mercy, may God have mercy on them and me.

 

 

Verse 14 – 17

Religious Leaders Ask Jesus about Fasting

The word says that John’s disciples asked Jesus why he and the Pharisees fast but Jesus and his disciples doesn’t? Jesus answered by saying how can the guest of the bridegroom mourn while he is with them? The time will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them; then they will fast.

Jesus says no one will sew an unshrunk patch on old clothes because the patch will pull away from the garment making the tear worse. Nor will you pour new wine in old wineskins, if they do the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskin will be ruined, so they pour new wine in a new wineskin and both are preserved.

 

This word is real Jesus was there to do a new thing. When he speaks about the patch he is talking about the old religious ways. If he did what they did it would be worst. Jesus and his disciples were spending as much time together teaching and learning with the many that followed. They would not mourn, there would be a time for them to fast.

When we fast, we are releasing the old a purge we are coming from the fast new, changed. When doing a new thing you can’t mix it with the old, when expecting a new blessing God isn’t going to pour it out on your old ways.

 

 

Verse 18 – 26

Jesus Heals a Bleeding Woman and Restores a Girl to Life

 

The word when Jesus was talking about fasting a ruler knelt before him and told him that his daughter had died, he told Jesus to come put his hand on her and she will live. (command)  Jesus got up and went with him.

The word says just then a woman who had been suffering with bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, she said to herself “ If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”

Jesus turned and saw her and told her to “take heart your faith has healed you” and the woman was healed from that moment.

The word goes on to tell us when Jesus entered the ruler’s house and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd, he told them to go away. Jesus told them that the girl was not dead, but asleep. But they laughed at him. After the crowd was gone Jesus went to the girl touched her hand and she got up. The news spreads through the region.

The king with authority new that Jesus would bring his daughter back, the woman with blood knew that all she needed was to touch him. But Jesus said take heart, relax your worry. Your faith has healed you.

Our authority is in our faith, to know that God is real and will bring us from whatever we are coming from, going through, and moving toward. Are you walking in the power of your authority? Are you moving by faith? Are you ready to take heart?

 

Verse 27- 34

Jesus Heals the Blind and Mute

The word says Jesus went on from there, and two blind men followed him calling out have mercy son of David! When Jesus went indoors the blind men came to him and Jesus asked them Did they believe that he is able to do what they ask of him? they replied yes, Lord.

Jesus touched their eyes and said

According to your faith, it will be done to you?

And their sight was restored, Jesus warned them sternly make sure no one knows about this. But they went out and spread the news to the region.

The word says while the men were going out a man who was demon possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. When the demon was driven out the man was able to speak. The crowd was amazed and said, “Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel.” The word says but the Pharisees said “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.

 

Our faith is the key, we serve a God of impossible so wouldn’t what he does be never before seen. My favorite saying is, if you want to see God go and do the impossible, that will be a faith walk, a walk on water. When folks don’t understand what God is doing they will typically say it is the devil it’s demonic. Remember they are not supposed to understand what God is doing through you so don’t expect them to.

Verse 35 – 38

Jesus Urges the Disciples to pray for workers

The verse starts by telling us that Jesus went through all the villages and towns techin in the synagogues, preaching the word of God and healing sickness and discomfort. When he saw the people he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Jesus said to his disciples the harvest is plenty but the workers are few. Jesus tells his disciples to ask the Lord for a harvest so we can send out workers into his harvest field.

This scripture is very important. One day the Lord showed me that we are the Trees of knowledge and we are Eden. When we are growing in the Lord being nurtured in to goodness, we have bountiful harvests. Everything that comes from us is good. Jesus had compassion for the people because they didn’t know how beautiful they could be. We don’t know how beautiful we can be. When we lack faith in God we are walking around worried about so many unimportant things. Sometimes it can be a problem only God can solve, those are the times to just wait in his presence.

Are you ready to be a worker are you ready to plant a seed for the harvest? Did you know that that can just be praying that someone gets to walk the path of righteousness? However God moves you are you ready to walk in faith, are you ready to be that tree of Knowledge that God tells you, you are? Here is your free will, you know of what is good and you know of what is evil, now you decide. Amen

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Matthew Chapter 6

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

Blessings everyone,

 

I pray that you all are going forth with full power, not half power but full power. When we walk in faith, we are walking with God, we are allowing God to led us in to everyplace that he knows that we will soar in. So today where ever God is leading you please go forth in the full power that God has gifted you in.

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

Another way that I serve is as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out group that can be found on Facebook and periscope. Okay let’s get into the word.

Matthew Chapter 6

Jesus Teaches about giving to the needy

Verse 1- 4

Jesus Teaches us to be careful not to display our righteous acts, for everyone to see. The word says If you do, you will have no reward from your father in heaven. The Lord says be sure not to announce your charitable deeds with trumpets like the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. The Lord says when you give to the needy, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving maybe in secret. Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

 

Praise God, this verse is very important especially in this day. I have scrolled on Facebook and seen videos of people feeding the homeless and just had to press record.  When we have been moved in our heart to do something for someone else and we have the means to do that thing. The Lord says that it is important that we go forth in secret if you press play for a praise from others then you have been rewarded already.

You can’t serve two gods so either you go forth and get the praise from man, or you go forth and allow the lord to open the storehouse and pour out your reward. I don’t know about you but if I am obeying the Lord by helping someone who needs me then I don’t want the praise of man, because the praise isn’t for us it’s for God who gave us the means to provide what was needed.

Verse 5 – 15

Jesus Teaches about Prayer

Jesus has spoken to us about praying, we are told not to go and pray standing out in other places, but to go to a room, close the door, and pray to your father, who is unseen. Then your father sees what you have done in secret, he will reward you. Jesus says and when you pray do not keep babbling like pagans, because they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them for your father knows what you need before you ask him. Jesus says this is how you should pray:

Our Father in heaven,

Hallowed be your name,

Your kingdom come,

Your will be done

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our debts,

Has we also have forgiven our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

But deliver us from the evil one.

Jesus says If you forgive men who sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your father will not forgive your sins.

 

The word tells us that when we pray go to a quiet place so that you can hear the Lord. When we are in church and we are in the street we pray in fellowship but we should be spending personal time with God.

Jesus shows how to begin our prayers. When we pray we are saying, Our father in heaven Holy is your name. we are asking God to lead us by his will on this earth as he has placed in heaven. God places us high, we place ourselves low. Anything that we would like to have God wants us to have better. we cannot even imagine the things that we could have. I am not only talking about material, if you are going to God for material things then you are going for the things that you idealize. I’m talking about better spiritually because you can have all the material things that you desire and still feel empty. You want peace of mind in a beautiful place, you want to be filled with the glory of God and your overflow will surround you. We want God to give us our instruction for the day, our daily lessons. We want the father to forgive us for the things that we owe him. Forgive us for not spending time with him, forgive us for not following his law, forgive us for not listening to his instructions. when we don’t deposit in to the storehouse how can we expect to have a bountiful overflow when the lord opens the storehouse (If you want to know more about the storehouse, go to Deuteronomy chapter 28). We make a covenant to forgive those who take away from us, forgive those that owe us. We ask God to not lead into temptation, but keep us from evil.

Anything that you want from the Father he already knows, he knows all things, so while we have finished the begin of the prayer, we are to be ready to praise him for already fixing it. Our faith is knowing that everything that comes our way has already been fixed and prepped better.

we can’t go around thinking we are too good to forgive someone who has wronged us, and expect God to forgive us. We should be ready to say if you did this to me or that to me, then you must have been fighting a spiritual battle that you lost. I am not mad at you, I will offer pray for your strength the next time your spirit goes to war.

 

Verse 16 – 18

Jesus teaches about fasting

Jesus tells us that when we fast, don’t walk around looking somber to show people that you are fasting. Jesus says when you are fasting put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it is not obvious to men that you are fasting, but to the Father, and he sees what you have done and he will reward you.

We should not be walking around looking distressed and hungry when we are fasting. When we are fasting, we are in God’s presence and we should not be worried about who knows that we are fasting. Your fast isn’t about others it is about you and God. Now if you are led to have a group fast, you’re not going to be walking around like it is the worst thing you ever done, and you can’t wait to be finished. You should be walking with the glory of God on you.

 

Verse 19-24

Jesus teaches about money

Jesus teaches not to horde the treasures that is of this earth, but to horde the treasures of heaven. Because where your treasures are, your heart will be

 

 No need to rush out to get new things to put on display, do not need to break our back to make money to have the best of everything for ourselves. when we are more worried about making money for ourselves we are busy in selfishness. We are not busy for the spiritual purposes, matter of fact we are so busy on our hustle for more money, more things, that we let days, weeks, months go by before we spent time with God. We lose focus on what the true treasure is, like I said earlier you can have all the material things and the best of them but if you  aren’t linked to God your spirit is still going to feel empty, you’re in debt with God.

 

Verse 25 – 33

Jesus Teaches about Worry

Jesus tells us not to worry about food and clothes, Jesus askes us; isn’t your life and your body more important than food and clothes? Jesus reminds us to look at the birds, they do not sow, reap, or store, and doesn’t the Father provide for them, aren’t you more valuable to him than they are? Jesus asks; by worrying can you add an hour to your life?

Jesus says O’ you of little faith? Do not worry about what to eat or what to drink or what you’re going to wear. Your father knows that you need them, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble.

Amen I cannot say it enough when we worry about things of this earth, we eliminate faith. Our worry, especially to a believe says that God isn’t Sovereign. I’m not saying it’s easy, what I am saying is keep moving in God’s presence so that you may be led to the things of God, and anything that is of God is good.

Be Blessed

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith with bible study, fellowship, worship and prayer.

Blessings everyone,

 

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

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

Matthew Chapter 4

Satan Tempts Jesus in the desert

Verses 1-11

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

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

Jesus answered

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

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

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

He will command his angels concerning you,

And they will lift you up in their hands,

So that you will not strike your foot against a stone

Jesus answered him

It is also written

Do not put the Lord your God to the test.

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

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

Jesus said

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

Then the devil left and the angels attended to him

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

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

 

Jesus begins his ministry

Verses 12- 17

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

Land of Zubulun and land of Naphtali,

The way to the sea, along the Jordan,

Galilee of the Gentiles

The people living in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of shadow of death

a light has dawned.

From that time on Jesus began to preach,

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.

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

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near

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

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

 

Verses 18 – 22

Four fishermen follow Jesus

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

Come follow me and I will make you fisher of men

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

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

 

Verses 23 – 25

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

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

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

 

Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

Matthew Chapter 3

Blessings everyone,

 

God is so good to us! If we are really listening, we will hear the warnings before the storm and in the storms. For those that think that God forgot about them, know that God just wants you to listen for him. At times listening to him may require others to come in and deliver a message. If you are not willing to chew and swallow (listen and think), then you will miss your instructions to how to get over that barrier.

Matthew Chapter 3

Verses  1- 12

John the Baptist prepares the way for Jesus

The word tells us that John the Baptist would go to preach in the desert of Judea during this time. He would say to the people

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

The prophecy of Isaiah came to pass through John the Baptist

“A voice of one calling in the desert,

‘Prepare the way for the Lord,

Make straight paths for him.’”

The word says that Johns clothes was made of camel hair, he also wore a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey. The people would come from Jerusalem, Judea and the region of Jordan to confess their sins and be baptized in the Jordan river by John the Baptist.

The word tells us that when John the Baptist started to see Pharisees and Sadducees coming he begin to say to them. You group of snakes, who warned you to try to get away from the wrath? He tells them to do well with keeping repentance, and not to try to say that they were sons of Abraham. He tells them God can raise children for Abraham out of stones.

“the Ax is at the root of every tree, the tree that doesn’t produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown in the fire.”

“one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry.

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand,

and he will clear his threshing floor,

gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

 

After reading these verses I was stuck for a moment I begin to think about John the Baptist, about the Sadducees (group who denies resurrection). It is the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ that allows us to go to the Father clean.

Because John the Baptist, only can baptize with water and you repent, you would have to stay well in that repentance. To be a child of Abraham we go through the son of Abraham Jesus Christ. Anyone that does not come from good will be cut off. From the beginning the God knows our intents, because God knows our hearts. We can’t go into spiritual oneness with just the desire to succeed financially or to get what we want. We must go in to things with our whole heart in it. When we are not all the way there for the right reasons we will not produce good fruit.

The word says that Jesus will come and take the grain ( the good, fruitful) and blow away the chaff ( the debris, not needed) and burn it away.

Verse 13 -17

John Baptizes Jesus

The word says that Jesus call from Galilee to the Jordan river to be baptized by John. John tried to change Jesus’s will to be baptized by him. He begin to say to Jesus

“I need to be baptized by you”

Jesus told John “to let it be so now, it is proper for us to do this tow fulfill all righteousness.”

Then John consented.

The word says as soon as Jesus was baptized he went up out of the water. The word says heaven was opened, and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said

“This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Jesus new the importance of the order, He knew the prophecy’s need to come to pass. Because John1:1 in the beginning was the word and the word was with God. John1:14 The word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

God Loved Jesus because Jesus was his son and he was pleased with Jesus because Jesus was his son.

For those that thinks that God forgot about you, he didn’t he is waiting for the protical child to return. He is waiting for you to be still and listen to all that he wants to teach you. All that he wants you to teach. Trust and believe you are not forgotten you are, very much loved. Just because he has placed you on this earth.

I Samuel Chapter 30

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

 

Blessing everyone,

 

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

I Samuel Chapter 30

David destroys the Amalekites

Verse 1 -10

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

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

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

The Lord responded

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

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

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

Verse 10 -31

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Now for the most Important part, if you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

I Samuel Chapter 27

 

Blessings everyone,

 

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

1 Samuel chapter 27

David among the Philistines

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now for the most Important part If you are looking to build your foundation in faith, you can Google, download a free bible app, or turn your bible to Romans chapter 10:9 and confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved.

My name is Wilhelmina Lundy and I am a servant of God.

I am the writer of from Sinner to Saint blog where I share the word of the Lord through bible study. I also serve as one of the leaders in the Walk It Out Group you can find the group on Facebook. I also serve on the From Sinner to Saint prayer wall, if you would like to be added to the wall you can email your name and request to fromsinnertosaint@gmail.com . okay let’s get in to the word of the Lord

1 Samuel chapter 21

Verse 1 – 10

Saul pursues David

The word of God says David went to Nob where there was a priest by the name of Ahimelech, the word says that the priest trembled when he met David. He asked David where was his men, David told him that he left the men behind because the king sent him on a private mission. David asked Ahimelech for five loaves of bread. Ahimelech told David that he didn’t have loaves of bread but he did have consecrated bread just as long as his men hadn’t touched a woman. David asked the priest for a sword and Ahimelech told David that the sword of Goliath was there wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod. David took the sword saying that there was none like it.

The Lord prepares jus for the purpose. I know that you have heard that before from me. The word tells us that not only God have consecrated bread waiting for him but the sword of a giant that he had already defeated. The Lord will remind us of all the battles that he has already won for us, to remind us that he can and will do it again.

Verse 11 – 15

David at Gath

The word says when David arrived in Gath the men saw him and said isn’t that David the king of the land. Isn’t he the one that the sing about Saul killed thousands, but David killed ten thousand. This scared David that they knew who he was and David pretended to act as if he was insane. The king was upset with his people because he couldn’t do anything with David.

If anything, this scripture reminds us that at times we may not know which way to go but when it is not the right directions we will know and have the knowledge to protect. Was David supposed to be king of Gath? Was he supposed to die in Gath? The answer is No, what we know is that the Lord said that David was to be king of Israel. Let’s remember that David defeated Goliath who was from Gath which means he landed in the space of Saul’s enemy. Because the people of Gath was singing the same song that upset Saul. David had gotten scared and to save his life he pretended that he was insane, because David knew that they did not kill the insane.  

Now for the important part. If you are looking to build your foundation in faith download a free bible app, google, or turn your bible to Romans 10:9 confess with for mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the died and you shall be saved. Begin to build your foundation of faith through a healthy prayer life, study of the word and praise and worship.

Be Blessed
